14-Year-Old Sentenced In Child-Molestation Case


old boys, one 10-year-old and one
11-year-old, all from three different
families.
Pilkington was charged with a
single count of lewd molestation of
a child under 12, a second-degree
felony, and was arrested on May
13.
At his lengthy sentencing hear-
ing, he-and his family members sat
inside the jury box in Courtroom A
of the Hardee County Courthouse.
Family members of his victims sat
in the gallery, at least three rows
back from the front as instructed by


bailiffs.
Two mothers of victims strug-
gled to keep their emotions in
check as they told the judge how
-Pilkington's crimes had affected
their families.
One of them said her 7-year-old,
is "scared to death" and hides
behind other people because "he is
afraid to be seen." Her 10-year-old,
she said, "is so angry, all he wants
to do is fight."
She said her daughter, a National
Junior Honor Society student,
"wants to give it all up" because she


cannot stand being, in the same
school with Pilkington's relatives
each day.
"It tears my husband apart," she
continued. "He cannot speak today
because he is so internally angry.
When I got up here today, he was
facing the back of the courtroom
because he cannot stand to look
forward."
She said she cried for three days
straight.
"I cannot trust a child, an adult, a
teenager around my kids. I cannot
feel safe," she told Ezelle.


Then she added, "When it comes
to him being sentenced,. I'd like. to
see him under the bus, as far as I'm
concerned."
The second mother took her turn
in addressing the judge. "Michael
Pilkington has taken my son's free-
dom to be a kid." She said her son
is afraid to go to school.
"I hope that this court, whatever
decision that they decide, that it's
done in the best interests of these
four victims and all the children of
Hardee County.

Crash Claims



Motorcyclist


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A motorcyclist who was not
wearing a helmet was killed early
last Thursday when he lost control
of his vehicle, the Florida Highway
Patrol said.
Bobby Dwayne Ackley, 41, of
830 Evergreen Dr., Wauchula, suf-
fered massive head injuries in the
crash, according to Cpl. Larry H.
McClellan Jr. He died after being
transported to Tampa General Hos-
pital by medical helicopter.
Ackley became the fourth person
to die on Hardee County roadways
so far this year.
McClellan said the crash
occurred at about 1:30 in the morn- -
ing on Griffin Road in Wauchula,
near its intersection with Shackel-
ford Road.
He said Ackley was headed west-

You may have been wondering what exactly this unique structure is at the Fred Dennis Child Development Center on the corner
of Ninth Avenue and McEwen Street in Wauchula. Well, architect Ted Huffman decided to put his own spin on the traditional cov-
ered walkway used by students in the Redlands Christian Migrant Association program when he turned it into a piece of geomet-
rical artwork. The buildings at the Fred Dennis Center were damaged by Hurricane Charley in 2004, and the breezeway was one
of the sections that needed replacement. Huffman also designed an identical breezeway at the Bowling Green Child Development
Center.

ylan for the Hardee County School
Board.
The session is set to begin at 5:10
p.m. in the meeting room at 200 S.
Florida Ave. in Wauchula. At its
close, School Board members will
adopt a tax rate and spending plan
for the next year.
The total $63.2 million budget
and its accompanying 7.564 mill-
age rate scored tentative approval
in a first public hearing on July 30.


At that time, no members of the
public attended. School Board
members voted unanimously for it.
The plan calls for raising taxes
while still lowering the millage
rate. In 2006-07, millage was set at
7.663. Today, the lower proposal
still generates more revenue, hence
an 11.48 increase over what is
known as the "rolled-back rate," or
the millage that would have
brought in the same monies as in


the current tax year.
While the 2006-07 millage gen-
erated $11.9 million in taxes, 2007-
08's proposal of .7.564 mills is
expected to bring in $13.4 million.
That local tax money will only
partially fund the total school bud-
get of $63.2 million. But, that local
tax money called "required local
effort" by the state also makes

approaching Shackelford Road
when he drove off onto the grass of
the north shoulder. McClellan
could not say what caused Ackley
to leave the pavement.
Losing control, Ackley contin-
ued in a westerly direction through
the grass before being thrown from
the motorcycle.
' Ackley landedin the roadway in
the westbound lane, McClellan
said. His bike came to a final rest in
the grass, facing east.
McClellan said Ackley wore no
head protection, and was severely
injured in the crash. He was pro-
nounced dead at Tampa General
Hospital.
Ackley leaves a wife and two
children. Funeral services, were

Jury-Selection Process



Begins In Murder Trial


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Jury selection began Tuesday in
the case of a Wauchula man
accused of murdering his wife two
years ago.
Michael Branham, now 48 and
then of 441 Shaw Road, faces a
first-degree murder charge in the
July 26, 2005, shooting death of
Janette Branham, 40.

Branham has claimed since the
start that it was an act of self-
defense.
He was arrested on the charge on
July 28, 2005.
Prosecuting the case is Assistant
State Attorney Stephen K. Hou-
chin. Defense lawyer Lawrence


Shearer represents Branham. The
case will be tried in front of Circuit
Judge J. Michael Hunter.

Third Marijuana Grow House Shut Down


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Drug Task
Force has uncovered its third mari-
juana grow house in as many
weeks.
Four people were arrested on
Wednesday and Thursday of last
week in connection with a marijua-
na growing operation at 859
Hollandtown Road in rural Wau-
chula.
Geidi Gil, 30, and Alain Yara, 32,
both of whom gave a Hialeah
address at book-in, and Jean Carlos
Morales, 20, who listed the
Hollandtown Road address, were
each charged with cultivation of
marijuana, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and possession of


drug paraphernalia.
Miguel LaRosa, 29, of Sebring,
was charged with violation of his
probation in a previous marijuana-
cultivation case.
Gil and Yara each posted a
$1,000 bond last Thursday to gain
their release from the Hardee
County Jail as they await trial on
the charges. Morales posted a $500
bond on Thursday. LaRosa is being
held without bond.
According to sheriff's Maj.
Claude Harris Jr., a spokesman for
the Drug Task Force, the arrests
began late last Wednesday night as
detectives conducted a surveillance
on the suspected grow house on
Hollandtown Road.
There, they saw a woman and a


man in a dark-colored four-door car
on the property. That man and a
second man loaded two bags into
the car as the woman watched,


Harris said.
Another officer following the car
after it left the property noticed its
left brake light did not work, and he


stopped it as it turned onto Maude
Road. He released his drug-trained
K-9, Hale, while another officer

Lena Gibson of Zolfo Springs last week predicted the exact score of
the Hardee High-North Fort Myers football game, 20-7. She won two tick-
ets to a Tampa Bay Bucs game through our weekly Herald-Advocate guess-
the-score contest.
The Red Knights were a lot larger than the Wildcats, who won their
opening game for new head coach Tim Price. The fighting spirit of the Cats
is amazing.
Hardee will host always tough Fort Meade this Friday night. The
Miners defeated Shorecrest 61-0 last week and has most of their team back
from 2006.

Bill Lambert, chairman of the Hardee County Economic Development
Authority, told the Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday the authority has
$1.9 million plus interest that may be awarded as grants this Tuesday at
8:30 a.m. at the County Commission chambers.
This money comes from phosphate severance taxes returned to the
county. Applicants for the grants are the City of Wauchula, upgrade the
electric substation; Hardee County, water and sewer expansion; Industrial
Development Authority, expand the industrial park; and South Florida
Community College, establish a firemen's school.
Lambert believes -Hardee's agricultural economy is waning and that
economic diversity is needed.
He thinks this can best be achieved by water and sewer expansion,
industrial park expansion, more public and private housing, and airport
expansion either Wauchula Municipal or the proposed Florida
International.
Members of the authority are Lambert, Bobby Smith, Bill Beattie,
Perry Knight, David Royal, Roger Hood, Bridgette Merrill of Enterprise
Florida, Jama Abbott and Paul Samuels of the Florida Phosphate Council.

Newspaper reports from the Atlanta Constitution and the Lakeland
Ledger stated Travis Henry, a Frostproof native who starred at Tennessee
and is now a star NFL runningback with Denver, has nine children with
nine different women in four southern states. He earns several million a
year playing football and is paying child support. That is a startling statis-
tic.

Guardian Ad Litem needs volunteers and foster parents, said Joanne
Loeber, staff advocate.
The.program has 64 court cases involving 125 children in Hardee
County and only two volunteers. Guardian Ad Litem looks after the best
interests of children involved in court cases.
The office is at 417 W. Main Street, Room 109, Wauchula. The phone
number is 773-2505 or 1-866-341-1425.

There are over 80 churches in Hardee County. About.20 percent are
members of the Hardee County Ministerial Association. The president is
Rev. Jimmy Morse.

Wanda Gunn recently wrote, "All the citizens of Hardee, Polk and
Highlands counties who knew me, Wanda C. Gunn, I want to thank each
and every one who said prayers for my recovery. I have totally recovered
from my motorcycle accident May 23, 2004. I am back to the old Wanda,
full.of vim and vinegar and still have red hair."
Wanda and her. husband Jimmy live at 1031 Morgan Grice Road,
Charlie Creek Village, east of Wauchula. She is ready to start cooking
again, also taking in clothes for ironing. Slie can be reached at 773-0002 or
773-7927.
After the accident Jimmy sold the two Harleys and bought one Honda
motorcycle. Wanda rides on the back. Both wear helmets.

"If he does get out," she contin-
ued, "I hope he's not allowed back
in school because at one time or
other everybody has to go to the
bathroom."
After hearing all the mothers had
to say, the judge explained that he
is governed by the juvenile laws of
the state. He explained that those
laws are set by the Florida
Legislature.
"You ask that Michael Pilkington
be sentenced to a maximum sen-.
tence in prison, but that is not with-
in my discretion in this case,"
Ezelle told family members present
on behalf of the victims. "That is
not to lessen how you feel," he
added.
Ezelle said he could find "no
legal reason" to depart from the
Department of Juvenile Justice's
recommendation in the case.
Then, he placed Pilkington on
probation until his 21st birthday, or
about seven years.
During that time period, he is to
reside with his parents and may not
leave home without the permission
of a parent, the Juvenile Justice
Department or his probation offi-
cer.
He must abide by a curfew from
7 p.m. each day until 7 a.m. the
next morning. He cannot leave the
home without being accompanied
by an authorized adult.
Further, the teen may not possess
any weapons, alcohol or drugs.
He must submit to DNA testing
and he must attend school full time,
Ezelle said.
The judge also ordered
Pilkington to stay away from his
victims, all members of their,fami-
lies and also from their property.
And, Ezelle said, Pilkington
must undergo sexual offender
counseling, with full participation
by his parents.

"Now, it's you, my eyes to your
eyes direct, because this is your dis-
position," Ezelle said to Pilkington
as he continued his sentencing
order.
He told the boy. that he was
ordering outpatient treatment as a
sexual offender, adding a warning-
that "if there is a violation of pro-
bation of which the nature is to
indicate this is not working, I am
ordering that you be committed to
an inpatient, secure facility to con-
tinue treatment."
Moreover, Ezelle found Pilking-
ton to meet the requirements for a
serious sexual offender designa-
tion.
Lastly, the judge ordered
Pilkington to pay for counseling for
his victims if free mental-health
counseling is not available to them.
Maj. Claude Harris of the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office said
Pilkington was arrested after a
mother of two of the victims over-
heard her sons discussing the sdxu-
al abuse.
Harris said the sexual acts
spanned from March to May, and
happened up to 14 times.
Schools Superintendent Dennis
Jones of the Hardee County School
District said on Tuesday that the
court order says Pilkington is enti-
tled to attend school, but that the
order allows the district to choose
how that will be accomplished.
Jones said Pilkington, who
would have been attending Hardee
Junior High School, will be
assigned to Pioneer Career
Academy, the district's alternative
school in Zolfo Springs.
Further, Jones said Pilkington
will not be allowed to participate in
any extra-curricular activities, nor
may he leave campus for any rea-
son. "He is to attend school and go
home," Jotnes said.


I believe the second half of one's life is meant to be .better than
the first half. The first half is finding out how you do it. And the
second half is enjoying it.

JURY
Continued From 1A
Whether the trial proceeds in the ;:.
Hardee County Courthouse re-
mains in question.
At issue is whether potential
jurors have formed opinions based
on any pre-trial publicity they may
have read and whether the trial's
expected duration would cause
them an extreme financial hard-
ship.
Both lawyers have said they
expect the trial to last up to two
weeks, including this, the jury-
selection, process.
Clerk of Courts B. Hugh
Bradley's office mailed out 125
jury summons notices for Tuesday.
Of that number, a record 96 people
showed up to serve. Questioning
began that morning.
In order not to taint the remain-
ing jury pool, potential jurors are
being interviewed individually and
in private by Hunter, Houchin and
Shearer to determine each person's
ability to serve as an impartial
juror.
A second, backup, jury pool was
summoned for Wednesday. In that
mailing, Bradley's office sent out
100 notices. Out of that number, 44

A driver was going the wrong
way on a one way street. The
policeman barked, "Where do you
think you're going?"
"I don't know," he answered.
"Everyone else is coming back. I
reckon I'm late."
You may be late for many
things, but don't be late in turning
from your sins to the Savior.
One who 'was late, died. In
hades, where he was in great pain,
and from whence no one comes
back, he prayed, "I have five
brothers. Warn them so that they
won't come to this place of pain."
But no prayers are answered
there.
Wouldn't you rather go to
heaven? Then turn to the Lord. But
turn now. Don't be.late.
To be a hero or a heroine, one
must give an order to oneself.

By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The proposed new fire and solid
waste assessments will get a public
review tonight (Thursday).
The Hardee County Commission
will meet at 6 p.m. for the public
hearing set to approve the new rates
before the two public hearings
Sept. 13 and Sept. 24 on the 2007-
08 budget.
Commissioners recently heard a
consultant recommend new levels
for fire and solid waste (for those
people in the unincorporated areas
of the county who use the solid
waste service). The solid waste rate
is increased by $1.49.
The larger problem is with the
fire assessments, increasing to
$136 for residential, small amounts
for industrial and commercial and,
for the first time, assessing vacant
and agricultural lands, including
dairy, groves, woods, clay settling,
cattle, farming and mining lands.
Recommendations for the fire
assessment included up to $1.98
per acre for rural landowners. The
commission, on a 3-2 vote, opted
instead to assess them at 25 percent
of the recommended rate and make
up the difference, about $500,000,
from other sources.
The commission met last Friday
to try to resolve that potential
$500,000 shortfall in the 2007-08
budget.
When, the dust had settled from
the morning meeting, the commis-
sion did not have to jump through
many difficult hoops. They found
most of the $500,000 shortfall
already in the current and future
budgets.
Based on current figures, the
county upped the projection of
county jail bed rentals for 2006-07


by $200,000 and increased the jail
bed rentals in the 2007-08 budget
by $50,000.
The county moved $500,000 out
of Fine and Forfeiture into General
Revenue fund balances, said
County Manager Lex Albritton.
The commission restored last
year's budget funding of $75,000 to
HOPE of Hardee instead of cutting
the senior citizen-serving agency to
$60,000.
The commission Friday also:
cut $4,000 (the entire
amount) from the local YMCA;
whacked the $5,000 ear-
marked for the Heartland Water
Alliance;
reduced RestHaven mainte-
nance by $1,000;
knifed $5,000 from the
Hardee County Chamber of
Commerce, leaving $5,000 for the
chamber; and
took $2,834 from the Hardee
County Health Department mainte-
nance and gave it to the
Transportation Disadvantaged pro-
gram.
Albritton said the new budget
eliminates 18 unfilled county posi-
tions and said four more positions
are funded but unfilled. There are
no layoffs in the new budget.
The new county budget is
$58,913,295 compared with the
current budget of $76,212,520.
Ad valorem taxes for 2007-08
are expected to bring in
$13,163,077, compared with the
current $13,570,183. The Florida
Legislature recently told counties
to adopt the rollback millage rate of
2006-07, plus a three percent cut.
Part of the meeting was dis-
cussing the twin budgets of
EMS/Fire Chief Mike Choate,
which total over $3.5 million for


2007-08.
The new EMS (emergency med-
ical services) budget is $1.748 mil-
lion, down 16 percent from the cur-
rent budget, said Choate. The new
fire budget is $2.841 million, down
11 percent from the current year, he
noted.
The commission wants Fire/-
EMS to generate more of its funds,
such as billing insurance compa-
nies for vehicle fires or charging
costs to babysit approved burning
in case the fire gets out of control.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
said the county strongly encourages
landowners to call the fire depart-
ment ahead of time when they have
a burn permit. "If you set a fire
without a permit, that is criminal,"
he said, referring to burning pro-
jects on land.
"In rainy seasons, brush fire calls
go down," said Albritton.
Choate has said about 24 percent
of Hardee fire calls are for brush
fires and other non-structural fires
on rural land.
Choate said some citrus growers
get three-day bum permits.
"We are looking at billing insur-
ance companies for vehicle fires,"
said Choate. Bryant said his depart-
ment would have to send out bills
for responding to all vehicle fires
and not discriminate against insur-
ance-covered vehicles.
Commissioner Gordon Norris
said, "We don't have the money to
buy tractors to mow the roadsides."
Choate said the county could
consider special taxing districts.
In the new county budget special
fire assessments are projected at
$1,761,000, compared with the cur-
rent $1,287,500.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well Football Fans, the opening weekend of college football is in the
books. What a stunner too! Appalachian State beats Michigan at the BIG
HOUSE. Appy fans tore down their own goal post back in Boone, N.C.!
The Mountaineers are the two-time 1-AA National Champions and sure
they are the most powerful team in America in their division but "who
wudda thunk it." Remember when the Swami told you the Big 10 was noth-
ing more than the Mid-American Conference with bigger stadiums? I rest
my case.
The Gators opened as expected for those wondering if Tebow can
throw the ball, the answer is yes. Newton looked good in a backup role too.
Brandon Siler had 11 tackles from his linebacker position. 24 freshman saw
action for the defending National Champions as well. This week, it is the
Trojans in the Swamp. No, not Southern Cal. but the Troy State version.
The UCF Golden Knights opened with a victory over North Carolina
State in Raleigh.That win over an ACC team is a feather in the cap for UCF
as well as CUSA. Next up is Texas on Sept. 15 in the Knights new on-cam-
pus stadium with ESPN Gameday in attendance.
Miami opened Randy Shannon's head coaching career with a 31-3 win
over Marshall. While the Canes may be good in 2007, especially on
defense, this game was no indication of past glory. Marshall was that bad.
Maybe it was the Orange Bowl Mystique"-but the Herd looked more like
deer in the headlights than a Thundering Herd of Buffalo. Mark Snyder bet-
ter right the direction of. the Herd soon. The natives are restless in
Huntington.
What conferences had good opening weeks'? The Big East rolled to a
7-1 record. Only Syracuse lost while UConn made it 1-0 versus the ACC.
The ACC saw UCF beat N.C. State and Wyoming over Virginia as well.
Mediocre start for the ACC but at least their top team in the polls didn't lose
to a i-AA at home, right Michigan? By the way, Bowling Green beat
Minnesota as well. The SEC went 9-1 with only Tennessee losing a great
game to watch with Cal.

Now for this week's Bill O' Fare . .
1. Troy at Florida No way the Gators get a Michigan Style Upset
but the Trojans will play them a lot tougher than WKU. Just ask Arkansas.
The Gators will play the starters longer. Time to get serious about a wound-
ed Tennessee team coming to Gainesville. Florida 41 Troy 17.
2. West Virginia at Marshall The Mountaineers first trip to
Huntington since 1915 is billed as The Friends of Coal Bowl." WVU has
an offense that is capable of putting up basketball numbers. West Virginia
52 Marshall 23.
3. Miami at Oklahoma Canes get a dose of reality in'week two.
Sooners 34 Miami 13.
4. Virginia Tech at LSU This game is supposed to be a showdown
between the ACC and SEC. VPI will get blown out of the stadium. So much
for the America's Team" as the Hokies have proclaimed themselves. LSU
38 VPI 13.
5. UAB at FSU The Blazers are possibly the worst team in. CUSA.
Just what the Noles need at home to start. This game should get them ready
for ACC play. FSU 45 UAB 14.
6. Lenoir-Rhyne at Appalachian State Why not? Lets GOOOOO
Mountaineers. They have put themselves on the football map. 2007 should

Part 3
PASSIVE ANIMAL ABUSE ISSUES
We have discussed many types of animal cruelty and abuse in the last
few weeks, including the controversial and highly publicized dog fighting.
Many people were not even aware dog fighting existed until a popular foot-
ball quarterback was involved and the tapes were televised.
We also touched on the fact there are people in other countries who eat
dogs and horses. This week we will discuss what is known as passive or
acts of omission 'which includes neglect, starvation, dehydration, parasite
infection, inadequate shelter and failure to seek veterinary care.
I will never forget the time I was in the waiting room writing orders for
a sick poodle. I looked out the window and saw a man trying to run to the
front door carrying a limp Irish setter that appeared to be unconscious. I
opened the door for him and was ready to start ordering x-rays because I
felt sure it must be another car accident case.
However when we got the dog on the examining table we realized he
had the worst case of flea infestation I had ever seen in all my years of prac-
tice. We sprayed the dog with Adams Flea Spray which would kill the fleas
on contact, but we knew it would last only a few hours and that gave us time
to examine him.
It was obvious the dog was lethargic and the mucous membranes in his
mouth had no color at all. He had a weak irregular heartbeat so I literally
ran to the back to draw blood for a transfusion because he was so near
death.
I had given the dog a second unit of blood before there was any sign of
life- and that was only when the dog's owner bent over and whispered his
name. The dog could not move his legs, his head or his body but, always
loyal, he managed to wag his tail.
This dog had a flea collar, but it looked like it has been there a long,
long time and was useless. It might be difficult to believe fleas could ulti-
mately kill an animal, but a flea pierces the skin and feeds on the blood. In
this case there were so many fleas the dog was, in essence, bleeding to
death.
We have also had dogs brought in, usually by the Hardee Animal
Control, with a collar embedded in the flesh around its neck, It always
requires a surgical procedure to get the collar off and suture the wounds.
This is obviously severe animal neglect and abuse.
These are what is known as passive cruelty or abuse when pet owners
fail to care for their pets because they simply don't know how or they were
just too busy to provide adequate care.
There are often cases where dogs are tied to a tree or there is no shel-
ter to get in out of the rain, no shade or very limited shade. Often there is
no fresh water. There are also cases that can be considered abusive when
pets are fed too much and become morbidly obese.
The accumulated fat can cause shortness of breath and can also lead to
heart, liver, kidney and pancreatic disorders.
I am sure we will see more cases of passive animal abuse by pet own-
ers who don't know or understand how to care for their animals. However,
as a pet owner and practicing veterinarian I hope we have seen the end of
the malicious cruelty of dog fighting, sponsored and endorsed by multimil-
lion dollar athletes.

WHAT MOTHER SAID
My mother always taught us not to speak out of turn, or, if we didn't
have anything nice to say, we shouldn't say anything at all.
The problem is, not everybody holds with this theory, especially nowa-.
days, and frankly, sometimes you have to say something that may not be
particularly nice. Sometimes you have to speak up when no one else can or
will.
My two daughters and I were at'the beach for our evening swim when
a young couple showed up. They couldn't have been more than 15 or 16
years old. I suspected they showed up to watch the sunset as so many peo-
ple do. As I watched, the couple parted; she walked toward the water and
he walked toward the line of sea grasses and trees that separate the parking
area from the beach. Then, much to my dismay, the young man turned his
back to the sea and urinated in the sand, in full view of the rest of the beach-
goers.
"I do not believe what I'm seeing!" I hissed, and the girls turned to
look.
"What?" Jillian asked, and then, "oh," she said, and wrinkled her nose.
"How old do you have to be before you know better than that?" I
demanded.
"Mom," Jenny said, "please don't."
"Whadya mean, 'please don't'? Don't you see what he's doing?"
"You can't raise everybody," Jill said, and shrugged, and then dove to
look for shells.
"You're going to confront him, aren't you." Jenny said ... it was not a
question. She was already turning red in anticipation.
"You don't think I should?"
"It's not your job."
"Well clearly his parents haven't done their job, or there wouldn't be an
occasion to say anything to him."
The more I thought about it, the madder I got. It seemed such an insult,
especially when you consider that if he had walked a few more feet, he
would have been completely hidden by the sea grass. It was almost
as though he was daring someone to say something, or worse, that he felt
as though he was invisible.
"Mom, please," Jenny said, again, and I softened.
"I'll make a deal with you," I said, "I will only say something if our
paths cross."
We were getting ready to leave, and the couple had gone back to wan-
dering along the beach, walking in our general direction. It was a tossup;
we could have missed them while we were leaving as easily as we could
have met up with them. As it turns out, as we walked toward the car the
couple happened to be almost within arms reach. My girls disappeared like
smoke in a wind tunnel as I paused. The young man's eyes met
mine and I shook my head. Contact had been made ... I had his attention.
"You know," I said, "you really shouldn't pee on the beach."
This statement took him by surprise and he stared at me.wordlessly as
I looked him over. Blue hair, tattoos, he was a slight, willowy thing, as was
she. Together the two of them combined might have made an average-sized
guy.'They clunk to each other, seamed from shoulder to fingertips. She
blushed and he stared at the ground with something of a slight smile on his
face. Had he thought he was truly invisible? Was he somewhat pleased that
to at least one other person besides his tiny girlfriend, he wasn't invisible?
"I'm sorry," he muttered.
"There's a bathroom right there," I informed him and pointed, and he
blinked at me, still with that small smile.
Suddenly I knew as well as I have ever known anything in my life, that
these two kids were on their own. Where were their parents? Did anyone
ask them over dinner how their day had been? What they'd been up to'? Was
it just possible that they could go days without-anyone asking after them?
Did anyone even know where they were? Were they from just down the
road? Or from Nebraska?
"One day you guys are going to have kids," I said softly, and this time
they both blushed. "You have to think about the example you are going to
set."
"Yes, ma'am," the young man said, and the smile dissipated.
"Ya'll have a good night, now," I said, and went on my way.
Like Jill said, I can't raise everybody, but there was something in that
young man's demeanor that led me to believe that this was probably the first
parental advice he'd gotten in some time. There's an old saying that parent-
ing is one of the hardest things we will ever do, and that it takes a village
to raise a child. If we're not good villagers, then we will have to live with
what we have created.

Of The Herald-Advocate
One down, two down, three fin-
ished the game.
The Hardee Wildcats were down
to their last quarterback as last
week's season opener ended with a
Wildcat 20-7 victory over the visit-
ing North Fort Myers Red Knights.
"We played well as a team. Our
goal is to get better every day," said
first-year head .coach Tim Price,
relieved to get that first victory of
his tenure out of the way.
Sophomore starting quarterback
Ezayi Youyoute went down with
what turned out to be a broken left
wrist. He had surgery on Saturday
morning and will be out for six to
eight weeks. "I'd give up the win to
get our quarterback back," com-
mented Price.
Senior wide receiver Jordan
Grimsley finished the game with
Offensive Player of the Week sta-
tistics of eight carries for 70 yards
and two touchdowns, one catch for
36 yards and 50 punt return yards.
Not surprisingly, he went down
with cramps late in the game after
being hit hard out of bounds, taking
school photographer Alex Gilliard
with him.
Suiting up at the last minute, not
intending to play due to a knee
sprain, Gerardo Villegas stepped in
and finished the game at quarter-
back for the .'Cats.
Grimsley will have to have
another stellar night this week,
when the Wildcats host the Fort
Meade Miners. Although they
played as Wauchula and Fort
Meade early in the 20th century, the
official record began in 1949. To
date, Hardee has 36 wins, Fort
Meade 28. There have been three
tie games and one rainout.
Hardee was among the teams to
beat Fort Meade last year in its 7-5
record. Fort Meade also lost to

won 13-10.
The Miners won their fall classic
game 24-21 over Trinity Catholic
and opened the season last week
with a 61-0 romp over Shorecrest
Prep,. They have most of their
starters from last year back, includ-
ing senior running back Onterio
McCalebb, junior back Tamorris
Grace, soph back Jimmy Office and
junior left-handed quarterback
Rumeal Carlton. They are strong
defensively too, led by senior 200-
pound linebacker Brent Taylor.
Hardee is not without its defen-
sive stars. Logan Thomas took
Player of The Game honors with
five tackles, three for a loss, three

assists and a sack. Standout
returnee David Newcomb came up
with eight solo tackles, two for a
loss, and four assists. Soph Antjuan
Jones added four tackles, two for a
loss, two assists and a key pass
deflection. Wade Mahoney chipped
in with four tackles, one for a loss,
and four assists.
Senior kicker/punter Jose
Castaneda was .Special Teams
Player of the Week with two-of-
three PATs and a saving tackle on a
punt return which could have been
a touchdown.
"Although Fort Meade is not as
big as North Fort Myers, they have
team speed. Our kids look forward
to playing them," said Price. "And,
defensively, we have get better on
fundamentals. Some of the experi-
enced guys did what we expected,
but some of the younger guys need
-to step it up," added defensive
coordinator John Sharp.
Hardee took the cheerleader flag
"Begin With A Win" to heart even
as the game began. North Fort
Myers won the coin toss and elect-
ed to receive, starting at the Red
Knight 30. Carlton Huggins picked
up eight yards. A pass for Herbert

Hodges Celebrate

70th Anniversary


The children of Elver and Ruth
Carsten Hodges are honoring them
with a 70th anniversary reception
on Sunday.
The reception will be held from 3
to 5:30 p.m. at the Fellowship Hall
of the First United Methodist
Church, 207 N. Seventh Ave.,
Wauchula.
The couple were married Sept.
10, 1937 in Hallam, Neb. Of
German heritage, the Carsten fami-
ly said the oldest child should
. marry first. So, there was a double
ceremony; first Ruth's older broth-
er Reid married and later in the
evening Ruth Carsten married
Elver Hodges.
They moved to Wauchula in


1942 .when Dr. Hodges accepted a
position of forage agronomist at the
Range Cattle Station outside Ona.
Ruth taught and became principal
at the Limestone school before tak-
ing time off for the births of their
daughters, Margaret Blanco, Kathy
Hodges and Lucinda Lipp, who
will host the reception Sunday.
Later, Ruth returned to teaching,
serving first grade at Zolfo
Elementary School from 1960 to
1977 when she retired.
Dr Hodges, now 95, and Ruth,
now 93, express their praise to God
for their many years in this com-
munity and the many people who
have befriended them.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
THE NIGHT I RACED MY FATHER
My Dad had gotten a dose of poison gas in Europe as a U.S. sqlijer.in
World War I. He came out of that experience with a lot of trouble breathing.
I guess that helped to make him the morose, preoccupied and impatient man
I knew. i
I still remember him trying to help me with my math homework. It
seemed that every session ended with his shouting in frustration, "Use your
head!"
This was during the early years of the Great Depression. We were poor,
and Dad always seemed to have a cloud of sadness hanging over his head.
I believe he felt he'd had a chance to do better but had messed it up.
He tried his hand at farming but finally gave up and moved to town to
take a WPAjob clearing brush. For my proud father, this was next to wel-
fare. I remember bringing him baked bean sandwiches and coffee in a ther-
mos and sitting with him on a hillside while he silently ate his lunch.
For extra income, he worked as a janitor at the Town Hall. And that
leads up to the particular evening I will never forget. Dad and I were walk-
ing down a long, dark street lit only by an occasional streetlight. We were
on our way to the Town Hall where I would help him sweep and clean.
I was about 10 years old and pretty nervous and high strung. A scrawny
little kid, I excelled in little but fleetness of foot.
Maybe part of my interest in running was due to Dad's recalling his col-
lege days. He said he'd once raced against Long Boat, a famous Indian run-
ner.
After I heard that, my father grew to heroic proportions in my imagi-
nation and I pictured the ancient contest over and over. Each time, Dad, with
a great burst of speed, would beat the impassive Indian by inches.
Of course, I knew at his present age and poor health, he couldn't be
expected to do much really vigorous exercise. I'd never seen him run. Still,
I nagged him all the time to race me.
"Beat you to the railroad track!" I shouted and took off. I knew it would
be like always. I'd pull up huffing and puffing a ways down the dirt road
and Dad would come along stepping briskly, all business and no foolish-
ness.
But this time, something astounding happened. As I flew along that
road in the dark, there was a sudden rushing sound and my father, legs out-
stretched and arms pumping, surged past me like a runaway freight train!
I tried to overtake him, but it was hopeless. When I finally caught up
with him at the railroad tracks, he was bent over, struggling desperately to
pull air into his war-damaged lungs. I thought he was going to die: He
gasped and shook for a long time. Then he straightened, and we resumed
our walk to the Town Hall as though nothing had happened.
But something glorious had happened.,An unbelievable joy filled me.
Oh, I lost that race all right.-It wasn~'t-eirciose. But-ttradtosrit to the petr-
son I loved more than anybody else on Earth.
My Dad, dour, plodding, defeated, had thrown aside all the poor, wast-
ed years like an old coat and come charging out of the.past just like the
legendary track star I'd always dreamed he was.
That night I'd received a wonderful gift, a reason to admire.my father
that I would cherish for the rest of my life.


The happiest excitement in life
is to be convinced that one is
fighting for all one is worth on
behalf of some clearly seen and
deeply felt good. i

Alberta Mushrush Has

95th. Birthday Celebration


Plantation Oaks Restaurant in
Leesburg was the setting for a sur-
prise birthday party for Alberta
Mushrush on Saturday, Aug. 11.
Over 30 family members and
friends attended the luncheon cele-
bration in her honor.
Mushrush was born to Harry and
Lena Mae Shallenbarger in
Greenwood Township, Pa, in 1912.
The youngest of five children, she
is the last surviving sibling, turning
95 on Aug. 13. Her brother, James
Leon Shallenbarger, died Aug. 2 at
age 99.
Mushrush, affectionately known
as Maka to all of her family, has
four living children, 24 grandchil-
dren, 36 great-grandchildren and
12 great-great-grandchildren, all
scattered among Pennsylvania,
Ohio, Tennessee, Georgia,
Alabama, California and Florida.
She was married to Robert A.
Mushrush, and they resided in
Conneaut Lake until moving to
Florida in 1957. They had been
married for 46 years until his death
in 1977. One daughter and three
grandchildren are also deceased.
An avid reader, Mushrush can
devour a book a day and loves to
,work crossword puzzles. She still
'enjoys walking, weather permit-
ting. She also has an uncanny abil-


ity to remember all her family's
birthdays, month; day and year,
each and every one.
She continues to make her annu-
al trip to Pennsylvania and Ohio to
see the rest of her family and to
attend the Mushrush/Loper reunion
held every July in Pennsylvania.
Formerly of Old Dixie Highway
in Bowling Green, Mushrush has
been making her home with her

Swim Teams On Winning Way


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"So far, I'm pretty pleased."
In their first week, the Hardee
High swim teams are showing
strength. The boys squad has a
combined 3-0 record and the girls
are 2-1.
In two meets, the teams have col-
lected 18 first-place finishes as
individuals and relay squads.
This week, they travel to Lemon
Bay today (Thursday) and on
Saturday will participate in the Jim
Blackman relays at Sebring. Next
week, there are swim meets
Tuesday at home against Avon
Park and Thursday home for a visit
from Northport.
"They are getting better every
day. Everyone had a late start
because of school starting later this
year. It's only six weeks to district
competition. But the things we've
been focusing on in practice
showed up last night. With their




Mosley

Earns

Master's
Jackson G. Mosley of Bowling,
Green was one of 740 students to
receive degrees from the University
of Nebraska at Lincoln on Aug. 18.
Mosley earned a master's of sci-
ence degree in entomology.
He is employed as park manager
at Paynes Creek Historic State
Park in Bowling Green, and has
headed the park for a number of
years.
Commencement exercises were
held at the Bob Devaney Sports
Center. Chancellor Harvey Perlman
presided, with psychology profes-
sor Susan Sheridan delivering the
commencement address. Mosley
was unable to personally attend.
Graduates included students
from 40 states, 35 countries and the
U.S. territory of Puerto Rico.
Mosley is a graduate of Hardee
Senior High School, and earned his
undergraduate degree at Warner
Southern College in Lake Wales.
His bachelor's degree is in biology.
He is the son of Katie Mosley of
Bowling Green and the late John
Mosley Sr..


work ethic, these swimmers will do
well," said head coach Dick
Daggett.
He has scheduled some one- or
-two-team meets with larger
coastal schools such as Port
Charlotte and Lemon Bay to pre-
pare his teams for districts. "When
there is just two teams, there's a lot
more intensity. That experience
will roll over and help us at districts
where there are larger and better
teams, and hopefully carry us to
regionals and states," said Daggett.
The meet scheduled for last
Tuesday at Port Charlotte was
changed to Wednesday due to light-
ning. When they did meet, Hardee
boys fashioned a 153-136 wins,
while the Lady 'Cats had a bit of a
harder time.
Junior Tyler Robertson led the
boys with a pair of victories, win-
ning the 50 freestyle by 1.87 sec-
onds and the 100 free by 51.26 sec-
onds.
Junior Bradley Adcox Won the
diving with 150.45 points. Class-
mate Sheldon Hartman was second
with 142.90. Soph T.K. Hogenaur
placed fourth.
The only other winning event for
the boys in the Port Charlotte meet
was in the 400 freestyle relay,
where Robertson, freshman Dylan
Justice, soph Josh Rickett and
junior Chris Reid joined him for the
victory by 1 minute 26 seconds.
There were a lot of second-place
points as well. In the 200 medley
relay, Hardee was 5.19 seconds off
the winning time, with Robertson,
Reid, Rickett and junior Joe Porter
combining talents. Justice, senior
Sean McCandless, junior Isaac
Vasquez and soph Jake Willis
placed fourth.
Rickett, Reid, and juniors Dustin
Spears and Christopher White were
second, third, fourth and sixth in
the 200 free.


Other boys competing for Hardee
were Lee Cortez, Kyle Bodeck and
Brian Hagans.
For the Lady Wildcats, junior
Kaitlin Justice won both the 50 and
100 freestyle events. She was 4.84
seconds better than anyone else in
the 50 freestyle and 1.9 seconds
better in the 100 freestyle.
Junior Brittany 'Wiggins 100-
yard breaststroke in a time of
1:25.65, well ahead of Port
Charlotte's Alicia Espinosa, in at
1:33.64.
The girls 200 medley relay squad
of Justice, Wiggins, freshman
Kaitlyn Kennedy and junior Katie
Jernigan were second by just 2.75
seconds.
Other girls swimming for Hardee
were freshman Kyndall Robertson,
senior Sarah Ezelle, junior Katiana
Pesquera and sophs Chelsea
Goolsby, Heather Kouns, Samantha
Cowart and Ashley Smith.
Against Ridge Community and
Santa Fe Catholic at home Thurs-
day, it was a matter of smaller but
talented teams. a situation in which
Hardee has found itself in past
years.
Hardee girls won 122 to 74 for
Santa Fe and 65 for Ridge. The
Lady 'Cats picked up first place
points in both the medley and 200
freestyle relays. Justice won the
200 freestyle, Wiggins both the 200
individual medley and 100 breast-
stroke, and Jernigan both the 50
and, 100 freestyle.
Hardee boys won the meet with
146 points to 104 for Ridge and just
27 for the short-handed Santa Fe
squad. The boys combined to win-
both the medley and 400 freestyle
relays. Justice won the 50 free,
Robertson the 100 free and Rickett
the 100 butterfly.

He profits most who serves best.

their 25 downfield. A 15-play drive,
with a couple of long passes, got
North Fort Myers on the board
early in the second quarter. It was a
tie game 7-7.
Grimsley got a 30-yard runback
to start the Wildcats again. A 15-
yard penalty put the 'Cats in Knight
Territory. It took just five plays to
score. Gandy, Cimeus and
Youyoute carried the ball. Finally,
Youyoute pitched to Grimsley, who
went around right end for a 32-yard
score. With the PAT, Hardee led 14-
7.
That score held up at halftime as
each time North Fort Myers got s
going, its penalties would nullify its
gains.
There was a special ceremony at
halftime to honor Matthew Tom-
linson, who is retiring after 42
years on the sidelines heading up
the chain gang, those key people
who keep the yard, distance and
down markers correct. Principal
Mike Wilkinson presented a plaque

Wilkinson and assistant athletic
director Byron Jarnagin also pre-
sented him with a hat from Hardee
Signs and Tees and a Wildcat jack-
et from the school.
Hardee had first crack at the ball
to start the second half, with
Grimsley getting a 15-yard run-
back. An eight-play drive ended in
a punt. Back and forth the teams
went. A 43-yard Knight field goal
attempt went wide left.
As, the third quarter wound
down, Lance Mason sacked the
quarterback. Early in the fourth
quarter, Hardee took over on downs
when a bad snap on a punt attempt
stopped it. Hardee took over on the
Knight 34. Youyoute ran 20 yards
but was injured on the tackle.
Grimsley stepped into the quar-
terback slot. He ran the ball twice
and followed center Tyler Bumby
and right guard Eddie Hunt into the
end zone. The Castaneda kick went
wide. Hardee led 20-7.

BUZZARD, BAT, AND BUMBLEBEE
God is the Creator and He created lessons about Himself in the world
all around us. As David says in the 19th Psalm: "The heavens are telling
of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands"
(Psalms 19:1). Our God wants His creation to look to Him and wishes that
all be saved (Acts 17:24-27).
Some of these lessons in the world around us can be found in three ani-
mals: the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee. I've been told that if you
place a buzzard in a six-by-eight-foot cage, with no enclosure on the top,
this bird will be a prisoner. Because it is such a large animal, the buzzard
has created the habit of a running start of 10 to 12 feet. Without this run-
ning start, this animal cannot fly upward. In a cage with no top, this bird
finds itself a prisoner.
The bat is very different than the buzzard. Where the buzzard is large
and bulky, the bat is typically small and remarkably nimble in the air.
Flying around at night, you' would think that nothing could trap this flying
mammal. The only thing that can stop this animal is level ground. The bat
cannot take off in flight from level ground. The bat requires some slight ele-
vation from which it can throw itself into the air, gaining the ability of
flight, Such a simple problem becomes a crippling problem for this small
animal.
The bumblebee is another remarkable creature from which, we can
learn a lesson. A bumblebee, if dropped into a tumbler or drinking glass,
will not be able to find its way out. The bee will look for its escape around
the bottom of the glass but never realizes that all it should do is take off to
find its way out of the open top.
In many ways, we humans are like the buzzard, bat and bumblebee.
We often find ourselves- in personal problems which we struggle to over-
come. As the Bible says, when we find ourselves in temptation, God pro-
vides a way of escape (1 Corinthians 10:13). The way out of temptations
and problems is often the one place we do not look: up! If we would just
look to God, we would notice that there is a wide-open way of escape. But
instead of looking to God, we try and find our own way like the bumble-
bee, we wait for circumstances to work themselves out like the bat, or we
do what we have habitually trained ourselves to do like the buzzard.
Let's learn the lessons from the mistakes of others, even if those others
are animals. Let's look to God. I'm Telling the Truth.

Golf Teams Tee Off


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both Hardee golf teams have
gotten their seasons started.
Hardee girls played a practice
match last Tuesday, Aug. 28, at the
home Torrey Oaks Course. Hardee
beat Frostproof 210-238.
The Lady Wildcats have a pair of
seniors and a junior to anchor their.
squad. Seniors are Nicole Bromley
and Ciarra Chancey, with Ashley
Patarini adding junior leadership.
Macey Reese is a sophomore and
freshmen Kara Norris, Emily
Williams and Lauren Moore are
also looking to get playing time.
The girls travel to Avon Park
today (Thursday) for a quad-match
with Avon Park, DeSoto and Lake
Placid. Coach Byron Jarnagin
looks for a good, competitive team
this year.
Meanwhile, Hardee boys started
on Tuesday with a trip to The
Bluffs at Gardner, the home course


for the DeSoto Bulldogs.
"We look forward to a successful
season with six returning letter-
men," commented Coach George
Heine. "We will be led by three
seniors, Kaleb Saunders, James
Olliff and Kyle Cobb, and three
juniors, Ben Krause, Brek
McClenithan and Jake Crews."
Underclassmen seeking playing
opportunities are sophs Grayson
Lambert, Cody Porter, Tyler Cobb
and Quinten Blundell, and fresh-
men Caleb Reas and Taylor "Little
Bubba" Barlow.
Several of these fellows played
the summer Sertoma tour to sharp-
en their skills, including McCleni-
than, Saunders, Barlow and Lam-
bert.
The boys team plays today
(Thursday) at Sebring and continue
with a visit to Frostproof next
Tuesday and a home match against
Lake Wales next Thursday.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Lord, You have examined me
and know all about me. You
know when I sit down and when
I get up. You know my thoughts
before I think them.
Psalm 139:1-2 (NCV)

FRIDAY
You know when I leave and
when I get back; I'm never out of
Your sight. You know everything
I'm going to say before I start
the first sentence.
Psalm 139:3-4 (ME)

SATURDAY
You hem me in behind and
.before me; You have laid Your
hand (of blessing) upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonder-
ful for me, too high for me to
attain (grasp).
Psalm 139:5-6 (NIV)

SUNDAY
You made all the delicate, inner
parts of my body, and knit them
together in my mother's womb.
Thank You for making me so
wonderfully complex! It is amaz-
ing to think about; Your work-
manship is marvelous and
how well I know it.
Psalm 139:13-14 (TLB)

MONDAY
You saw my bones formed as I
took shape in my mother's body.
When I was put together there,
You saw my body as it was
formed. All the days planned for
me were written in Your book
before I was one day old.
Psalm 139:15-16 (NCV)

TUESDAY
Your thoughts how rare, how
beautiful! God, I'll never com-
prehend them! I couldn't even
begin to count them any
more than I can count the sands
of the sea. Oh, let me rise in the
morning and live always with
You.
Psalm 139:17-18 (ME)

WEDNESDAY
Search me, 0 God, and know
my heart; test me and know my
anxious thoughts. See if there is
an offensive way in me, and lead
me in the way everlasting.
Psalm 139:23-24 (NIV)

Volleyball Starts With Toughest


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Nothing like starting the season
with the most difficult of oppo-
nents.
That's what the Hardee volley-
ball squads did last week, taking on
top-ranked DeSoto on its court and
coming home to play second-
ranked Palmetto. Both ended last
season 11-1, splitting games during
the season.
Hardee can't relax either as the
return to school Tuesday included
home JV and varsity matches
against Braden River and a trip
today (Thursday) to face always-
tough Sebring. Next week's match-
es are Tuesday at home against
Sarasota Booker and Thursday at
Avon Park.
Against DeSoto last week, the
Hardee varsity played much better
than the scores might indicate, as
Hardee lost in three straight 25-8
sets.
"The scores didn't show how we
played. The girls were better than
that. If you didn't see the scores,
you would have thought they were
in the game all along. They blocked
better and passed better against-this
team than ever before. They got
some blocks on them and picked up
points off their own blocks," said
Wildcat head coach Ken Leupold.
"The passers, Kristen Robertson,
Marissa Hall and Amber Steedley,
are getting to a lot of shots they
wouldn't have last year. The know
had to read the opposition offense
.and anticipate where the shot will
go. They are vastly improved," said
Leupold, who held summer ball
sessions for both varsity and JV
players.
Against Palmetto on Thursday,
Hardee showed its improvement
despite facing the only team to beat
DeSoto last year. There were
bunches of ties in each of the four
varsity games.
Game one started off point for
point, 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 and 4-4, before
Aubrey Harkis got a hot hand and
carried the Lady Tigers to an 11-4
advantage. Tiger Jayna Buckner
added a couple of points, before
Hardee's Robertson served a cou-
ple of aces and narrowed the score
to 15-9.
Hardee chipped away at the
Palmetto lead when senior Megan
White had an eighth-point service
streak to tie the game 18-18.
Freshman Lacey Garza added a
couple of points to put Hardee in
front 20-19. With Amber Steedley
serving, there were two more ties,
the last at 23-23, before Palmetto
got the two winning points.
Game two. started the reverse,
with Robertson reeling off service
points to put the Lady Wildcats
ahead 6-1. Buckner countered with
enough points to make it 6-3,
before Hardee's Eryn Mahoney
added a couple of points. Hardee
led 8-4.
Gradually, Palmetto began its
own streak, tying the game at 10-
10. It was knotted at 11-11. A play-
er serving out of turn cost Palmetto
four points and put Hardee in front


12-11. It was tied at 12-12 and
Palmetto went on to widen the lead
to 16-14, then 20-16. Hardee would
not quit and got within 23-19
before the Tigers put the game'
away.
Game 3 was Hardee's from start
to finish. Spotting Palmetto a 4-2
brief advantage, Hardee tied the
game 4-4 behind the serving of
soph Chelsey Steedley. For the next
few minutes, every time Palmetto
would get close, Hardee would
forge in front again. Hall and
Marissa Shivers combined to put
Hardee up 16-10. Garza set for
Katie Rogers and nullified a
Palmetto serve. With the final four-
point surge by Kember Townsend,
Hardee won 25-14.
After a 1-1 tie, Robertson got
Hardee going. Hall followed suit
and Hardee had a 10-5 edge. Again,
Hardee hung tough until Buckner
turned a 14-12 game in Hardee's
favor to a 21-14 Palmetto lead.
Despite its best efforts, Hardee
couldn't stem the tide and lost the
game 25-15 and match 3-1.
"The girls showed courage in
coming back to take that third
game. Palmetto is so deep. Megan,
Marissa and Eryn did some good
serving. They are doing good pass-
ing despite a lot of pressure. The
setters are a freshman (Garaza) and
soph (Chelsey Steedley) and have a
tough job to learn and are doing
well with it. This is the deepest
-we've been. Any girl from one to
11 can start. It's hard to get every-
one one in, but we did and they all
contributed," said Leupold.
The junior varsity had a similar
experience. With first-game jitters,
the JV Lady Cats lost the opening


game to DeSoto 25-13. They came
back to make a game of it before
losing 25-21. In both games, Ali
Holle and Alejandra Rodriguez did
good serving. LaCresha Carlton
and Vanessa Garza each had three
service points.
On Thursday night, the JV girls
showed vast improvement before
the home crowd and played three
close games. In game one, down
23-20, Hardee came back to make
it 23-21, then 24-22, before
Palmetto got the winning point.
Palmetto got the first few points
in the second game, before Hardee
battled back, getting a point her,
and another there to narrow it to an
8-10 game. When Palmetto made it
14-10, Hardee got fired up, Behind
Holle's service, the local girls knot-
ted the game at 14-all and went
well in front at 21-14. Palmetto
tried to play catch-up, but fell short
as Hardee won 25-19.
The junior Lady Tigers roared
back, stretching a lead to 9-4.
Again, Hardee wouldn't quit and
bounded back to tie the game at 10-
10 and 11-11, before the Palmetto
experience of Kaycee Hatcher car-
ried Palmetto to a 15-12 game and
match victory.
"The first night, it was just our
total inexperience on the court. We
played better in the second game.
Tonight, we came together as a
team. Our passes were more accu-
rate. The team spirit is good. They
have heart. They played well, even
when they were down.
They all have potential and
promise and we just have to tap
into it. We'll have a good team.
We're waiting for it," said first-year
coach Barbara Leupold.


You cannot endow even the best machine with initiative; the jol-
liest steam-roller will not plant flowers.
-Walter Lippmann

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AIR PERMITS
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Regulation
Draft Permit No. 0490015-008-AC, Air Construction Permit Revision
Draft Permit No. 0490015-009-AV, Concurrent Title V Air Operation Permit Revision

Hardee Power Partners, Hardee Power Station
Hardee County, Florida
Applicant: The applicant for this project is Hardee Power Partners. The applicant's authorized representative and mail-
ing address is Alex C. George, Vice President, Hardee Power Station, 6695 County Road 663 North, Fort Green
Springs, Florida 33834.
Facility Location: The Hardee Power Partners operate an existing electrical generating power plant located in
Hardee County at 6695 County Road 663 North in Fort Green Springs, Florida, 33834.
Project: The purpose of the project is to revise the original air construction permit and concurrently revise the
Title V air operation permit to allow increases to the heat input rates for the Unit CT-2B simple cycle gas
turbine. The draft permit authorizes increases from 880 to 950 MMBtu per hour when firing natural gas and
from 950 to 1060 MMBtu per hour when firing distillate oil. Actual operating data indicates that the heat input
rates provided by the gas turbine vendor underestimate the actual performance of the installed gas turbine. No
physical or operational changes are necessary to realize the actual installed capacity of Unit CT-2B,. No increase
in the emissions standards (concentrations or mass emissions rates) are requested to accommodate the change.
The applicant does not expect any emissions increases nor increased utilization as a result of the change. Unit
CT-2B will continue to comply with all applicable provisions of the air construction and operation permits.
Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the
provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210, and 62-212, F.A.C. Applications
for Title V air operation permits are subject to review in accordance with to provisions of Chapter 403, F.S. and
Chapters 62-4, 62-210, and 62-213 F.A,C. The projects are not exempt from the permitting procedures for air
construction and Title V air operation permits. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Bureau
of Air Regulation is the Permitting Authority responsible for making a permit determination for this project.
The Bureau of Air Regulation's physical address is 111 South Magnolia Drive, Suite 4, Tallahassee, Florida
32301 and the mailing address is 2600 Blair Stone Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. The
Bureau of Air Regulation's phone number is 850/488-0114.
Project File: A complete project file is available for public inspection during the normal business hours of 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (except legal holidays), at address indicated above for the Permitting
Authority. The complete project file includes the Draft Permit, the Technical Evaluation and Preliminary
Determination, the application, and the information submitted by the applicant, exclusive of confidential records
under Section 403.111, F.S. Interested persons may contact the Permitting Authority's project review engineer
for additional information at the address and phone number listed above.
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue an air permit
to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable assurance that operation
of the proposed equipment will not adversely impact air quality and that the project will comply with all
applicable provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212, 62-296, and 62-297, F.A.C. The Permitting
Authority will issue a Final Permit in accordance with the conditions ofthe proposed Draft Permit unless a
timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public
comment received in accordance with this notice results in a different decision or a significant change of terms
or conditions.
Comments on the Draft Air Construction Permit Revision: The Permitting Authority will accept written
comments concerning the Draft Air Construction Permit Revision for a period of 14 days from the date of
publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be post-marked by the close of business (5:00 p.m.),
on or before the end of this 14-day period by the Permitting Authority at the above address. If written
comments result in a significant change to the Draft Permit, the Permitting Authority will issue a revised Draft
Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public
inspection.
Comments on the Draft Title V Air Operation Permit Renewal: The Permitting Authority will accept
written comments concerning the Draft Permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public
Notice. Written comments must be post-marked by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of
this 30-day period by the Permitting Authority at the above address. As part of his or her comments, any person
may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting
Authority determines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and
location in the Florida Administrative Weekly and in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected by
the permitting action. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or
phone number. If written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to
the Draft Permit, the Permitting Authority will issue a revised Draft Permit and require, if applicable, another
Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection.
Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition
for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency Clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 (Telephone: 850/245-2241; Fax: 850/245-2303). Petitions
filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed
within 14 days of publication of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action
may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner
.shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure
of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance
with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the
following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner, the name,
address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service
purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests
will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice
of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact; (e) A concise
statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the agency's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner
contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action including an explanation of how the
alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority's action is based shall
state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as
required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
Objections to the Draft Title V Air Operation Permit: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.)
Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of
the Administrator's 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(l I), to object to issuance
of any Title V permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Title V permit that were raised with
reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day public comment period provided in this notice, unless the
petitioner demonstrates to the administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within
the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition
with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any Title V permit properly issued


pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. 'Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet
the requirements of 42 U.S.C Section 7661d(b)(2), and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA-at: U.S.

JV 'Cats Open With OT Win


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior Wildcats
"bent but didn't break" in securing
a first-game victory.
"It's been a long time since
we've won the first game of the
season," said head coach Rod
Smith. "Last night the'kids hung
tough and battled for each other,"
he added.
Tonight (Thursday), the young
Wildcats run up to Fort Meade to
play the junior Miners on their turf.
"As always, the coaches have
been teaching Character, Attitude,
Trust and Strength (CATS). Varsity
head coach Tim Price emphasizes
the family We been emphasizing


also eliminating individuality. They
really needed each other last night.
Avon Park is a very phyiscal team.
I'm proud of our kids for not buck-
ling to them," continued Smith.
Quarterback Connor Davis and
center Devon Harris, both sopho-
mores, had good exchanges and
appeared comfortable with each
other, noted Smith.
He said also that several players
in the predominantly freshmen
team didn't get to play in this game.
"They need to step up in their
offensive and defensive practice
groups. We need the depth. They
are just as valuable to the team.
Some ninth graders are a step from
the varsity and some are a step


from being in the game. We want
them to work hard in groups to be
ready when they get called on,"
commented Smith.
Avon Park used its passing game
somewhat effectively, getting huge
gains at times, but overall was 13 of
25 for 142 yards. On the ground, it
was 28 carries for 118 yards. In
contrast, Hardee had four of eight
passes for 37 yards, but had 27 car-
ries for 162 yards. Soph Jake
Mayer toted the ball 18 times for
105 yards and both TDs.
Hardee had 10 first downs and
Avon Park 14. The junior Red
Devils were sacked twice, inter-
cepted once, had a field goal
attempt blocked and fumbled four

times, recovering two of them.
Avon Park had nine penalties for 65
yards, while Hardee had only three
for 25 yards. Hardee was sacked
twice, fumbled twice and had a
PAT blocked.
The game began with Avon Park
returning the kickoff 34 yards. On
the first play from scrimmage, the
Red Devils recovered their own
fumble but lost eight yards in the
process. After trading penalties and
a short run, Avon Park punted. The
ball rolled to the Wildcat 13.
Mayer got the first carry, an 11-
yard gain. He added nine more
yards, then 32. Davis used the
keeper to go outside and get to the
Red Devil 11. Trey Anderson went
over tackle to pick up a couple of
yards. Stopped on downs, Hardee
turned the ball over at the Avon
Park 8-yard line.
The Red Devils passed and ran
into the second quarter. After
recovering its own fumble, quarter-
back Avierre Connor was sand-
wiched by Andrew Hunt and
Jonathan Kelly for a sack. A fourth-
down pass was incomplete and it
became Hardee's ball.
On a shovel pass from Davis to
Anderson, Hardee gained 13 yards.
A sack slowed the Wildcats, who
were forced to punt. The teams
exchanged fumbles and Hardee
resumed possession but Davis was
intercepted.
There were two more changes of
possession before Avon Park man-
aged a score with less than a minute
left in the half. Calago Hipps went
the final two yards to score. The
PAT pass was incomplete. It was 6-
0 in favor of Avon Park at halftime.
The second-half kickoff was
returned 21 yards by Scott
Donaldson and Hardee was back in
business. Seven plays later, the
'Cats punted, rolling to the Red
Devil 42.
The teams exchanged fumbles
again. Avon Park was passing along
but was stalled by penalties. Hardee
started again at its 43 and took four
strong runs before Mayer took the
counter run the final four yards to
paydirt. The Serapio Torres PAT
kick was blocked. It was 6-6.
Despite best efforts, neither team
was able to score in the fourth quar-
ter. Avon Park got close, but a
Cleveland Nobles field goal
attempt was blocked.


On to overtime, when each team
had four tries from the 10-yard line.
Avon Park was first, but went back-
ward on two penalties to face a first
and 20. Consecutive passes were
broken up by Carson Davis, then
brother Connor Davis broke up the
final try, jarring loose a TD pass.
Hardee took over at the 10 and


took three tries to get into the end
zone. Mayer went over left guard,
for four, Connor Davis gained two
and Mayer ran hard over left guard.
again and could not be stopped.:
Hardee won 12-6.

The Florida Advocate, the Hardee
County Herald and The Herald-
Advocate of...

75 YEARS AGO
Baseball Season Over As
Wauchula Wins: Playing the great-
est game of baseball ever staged on
a local diamond, the Wauchula
Truckers closed the Orange Belt
League season at home last
Thursday afternoon, winning a 12-
inning struggle from Lake Placid.
The final score was I to 0. For 11
and a half innings the two teams
went scoreless as Henry Boney for
the locals and George Mackey for
the visitors engaged in a beautiful
pitching duel. It was Boney's dou-
ble in the 12th inning that won the
game for Wauchula.

School Books Arrive For The
1932-33 Term: County School
Superintendent J.B. Rooney was
surrounded by books this week as-
the free textbooks arrived prepara-
tory to the opening of school.
It is estimated that there are
between 12,000 and 15,000 text-
books stored in a room in the court-
house, for distribution to children in
the first to sixth grades next week.

Miss Mattie Beeson Passes Away
Monday: Wauchulans were grieved
to learn this week of the passing of
a pioneer resident of this city, Miss
Mattie Beeson, who died Monday
morning, Sept. 5, at 10 a.m. at her


summer home in Pisgah, Ala., after
a short illness.
Miss Beeson was stricken ill
early Saturday morning, and mem-
bers of her family were with her
until the end. Funeral services were
held at Pisgah on Tuesday afternoon
and burial was in the cemetery
there.
50 YEARS AGO
Quarterback And End Are Major
Wildcat Problems: The Hardee
High Wildcats are hard at work
scrimmaging daily for their season
opener with the Fort Meade Miners
Sept. 20.
Coach Bob Shirar is stressing the
development of a passing attack and
says the team this year will depend
on speed and passing. The Wildcat
squad appears to have plenty of
weight from tackle to tackle but the
backfield candidates are uniformly.
middleweights or lighter.

Tampa Spartans To Show Here:
The Hardee County Jaycees report a
good response to their announce-
ment that the University of Tampa
Spartans will appear in Wauchula
Saturday night. Sept. 14, for an
intra-squad practice game at Farr
Field.
The Jaycees are anticipating a
crowd upwards of 3,000 people.
Coach Marcelino Huerta is opti-
mistic over his prospects for a win-

dent body," she said.
Club sponsors Martha Shiver and
Leigh Ann Nicholson are very
excited about the project.

pating boys will be given identifi-
cation cards and collection cans
decorated by the girls.
"The boys will be collecting
donations between Sept. 10th and
14th. the money will be counted,
and sweethearts will be announced
Monday, Sept. 17th," Shiver
explained.
"It's all about having fun and
doing something worthwhile for
our school," Shiver continued. "We
hope everyone will join in and
make this a successful drive


because reading is truly the key to
the future.
"Any money left over from the
student books will go toward future
literacy projects," she added.
HHS Principal Mike Wilkinson
is enthusiastic about the project as
well. "The Lionettes have chosen a
book titled "Everyday Heroes." It's
a collection of articles about ordi-
nary people who have overcome
adversity to lead productive lives.
We want our students to know that
they can all be successful if they
are willing to put forth the effort;
We have our heroes at HHS, too,"
Wilkinson commented.

the Lionettes project may contact
Shiver at HHS, 773-3181.

Employee Meagan Davis (front) and manager Amber Schnable
show off one of the four tanning beds at Cow Town Tanning.
Friday and on Saturday from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m.
"We accept walk-ins any time, or we charge a flat fee for a month of
unlimited use," she said.
"Customers can also buy packages, where they can come in 10, 15, 20
or 25 times whenever they want to. It all just depends on what works for
them," Schnable said.
There are four tanning beds, with two set for 30 minute sessions, one
for 20 minutes and one for 10. In addition to the tanning beds, Schnable
also sells jewelry and purses.
Customers who are between the ages of 14 and 17 must have a parent
or guardian's signature in order to use the Smart Tan-certified salon.

MAMA MIA Mona's Italian Grill recently opened its doors on
Main Street in downtown Wauchula.
The restaurant is owned by Angel Morales of Tampa, who also owns
the Red Uarage next door, but it is managed by Meagan Mitchell. It opened
for business just four weeks ago, and Mitchell says that business is picking
up.
She is not just the manager, but one of the cooks as well.
Mitchell attended the Academy of Culinary Arts in Tampa where she
specialized in Italian food and pastries. She runs the kitchen with Jill Klein,
who also prepares Italian cuisine.
Mona's is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11
a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Saturday.
The restaurant is open for banquets and parties, with a room set aside
for the occasion. Take-out is also an option for diners wishing to eat at
home.
"We are looking to have Wildcat specials for every home game that the
highschool plays. We will be open after the game so people can come by
afterwards," said Mitchell.
Plans for a delivery service are also in the works for the restaurant. She
said that they would first deliver food around Wauchula and then possibly
move out from there.
Italian favorites served at Mona's include fettuccini alfredo, bruschet-
