Land Code Adds


Recent Changes


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The county is straightening
out its land use code book.
Although residents may be
aware of the changes, many
affect future plans for building.
Most of the many changes
incorporated into it had already
been approved but not written
into the code book, leaving it up
to the zoning department to-
recall the changes.
Planning and Development
Director Nicholas Staszko has
been spending all his spare time
working on the Hardee County
Land Development Code, last
updated in 1996.
Since then, the Hardee
County Commission has ap-
proved a variety of ordinances
and resolutions to amend por-
tions of the code, but they have
never officially been included
it. That is changing as Staszko
works to blend all the changes
into the existing code and make
it current.
At the county's August zon-
ing meeting, Staszko outlined
the main changes he has now

included in the 500-page code
book. Several make a difference
in how and where people can
build on their properties.
The commission approved
the amended code book.
Staszko said he would continue
to work on the book and bring
other sections back for approval
as he completes more of the
mammoth task.
He said his goal is to codify
the ordinances and get them
online for people to be able to
look at them.
The first change he men-
tioned was in section 2:03.03
about accessory dwelling units

Seeking

Candidates
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Zolfo Springs continues to
seek candidates for two avail-
able seats on the Town Com-
mission.
Nearly halfway into the filing
period, Town Manager' Mike
Schofield said late Tuesday
afternoon that no one has yet
completed the qualifying
process. He did note, however,
that both incumbents, Maggie
Belcher and Lois Dandridge,
have picked up qualifying pack-
ets at Town Hall.
Neither has returned her
qualifying papers, but both are
expected to shortly, Schofield
added.
The one-week filing period
for potential candidates closes
tomorrow (Friday) at 4 p.m.
The process is a simple one, and
qualifying packets can still be
picked up ,at Town Hall, 3210
U.S. 17 S.
Should enough candidates
surface to make a race, a munic-
ipal election will be held' on

"He told me he was going to
kill his wife."
Testimony in the trial of a
former police officer accused of
murdering his lawyer wife con-
cluded on Tuesday, but it was
that dramatic statement, made
on the opening day last Friday,
that remained a pivotal point in
the state's case against Michael
Branham.
Branham, 48, of 441 Shaw
Road in Wauchula, is charged
with first-degree murder in the
July 26, 2005, shooting death
of Janette Branham, 40, an
attorney in private practice in
Highlands County.
For a first-degree murder
conviction, prosecutors must
prove pre-meditation. Michael
Branham has asserted all along
that he acted in self-defense,
that his wife.was coming at him
with a pair of scissors. He shot
her 13 times.
Friday's powerful testimony
came from James Kelly, a
lawyer who lives in Lakeland
and who was a personal friend


Former Wauchulan Making

A Run For The Presidency

'The Outsider In The Political Game'


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Grover Cleveland Mullins, 50, who lived
about 10 years in Wauchula, is running for pres-
ident of the United States as a Democrat.
Mullins, who is single and has had a variety of
jobs, lives in Bulls Gap, ... .'-
Tenn. He hopes to get on the .
ballot in several states, -
including Kentucky, Ten-
nessee and even Florida if he
gets enough voter signatures.
His Web site is votegrover- ."
forpresident.com. He is on -
MySpace at .com/groverfor
president.
Mullins. was born in -
Chicago, Ill., in 1957 and
raised in Wauchula and ;.:
Harlan County, Ky. He said
he sold Grit newspapers in
Michigan in 1967. Until age
16 Mullins and his family
were migrants, moving with
fruit and vegetable crops, Mullins
mainly between Florida and Kentucky.
Mullins said he was raised in Wauchula and
attended elementary, junior high and senior high
school'here before signing up for the military in
1973 at the end of the Vietnam War.


He said he lived in Hardee County from 1968
through 1974 and for six months in 1988, when
he lived with his .sister, Kathy King, who
worked for the Supervisor of Elections Office in
Wauchula.
Another sister, Brenda Lee Mullins, still lives
V.- in Wauchula.
Mullins is divorced and has
a son, Joshua Mullins. The
candidate moved to Ten-
nessee, where he likes to fish
for bass and catfish.
.i He was in the U.S. Navy for
;Pp three years active duty and
three years on inactive status.
He is a disabled veteran, re-
, J ceiving an honorable dis-
charge in 1979.
Mullins as a young boy
worked in the fruit fields of
SFlorida, picking oranges, tan-
gerines, grapefruit and
lemons. He also worked in
vegetable farms with irriga-
tion, and picked bell peppers,
cucumbers, watermelon and squash. He was
also a loader and packer.'
He worked for Winn-Dixie in 1972 and 1973
as a bagger and stock clerk.

of both Branhams. He testified
that on Wednesday or Thursday
of the week prior to Janette
Branham's death, he was visit-
ing with Michael Branham
when Brapham told him he was
planning to kill his wife, known
to friends as "Jani."
"I told him that he was crazy,
that he was emotional, and that
I didn't want to hear it," Kelly
said under questioning by lead
prosecutor Assistant State
Attorney Stephen Houchin.
"Did he retreat from that
thought?" Houchin inquired.
"No, sir, he did not retreat
from it. -He said it three or four
more times," Kelly responded.
In fact, Kelly testified,
Branham went on to describe
how he would kill Jani. He told

Authority


Awards


Grant $$$
By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate'
The Hardee County Econo-
mic Development Authority on
Tuesday awarded $1.9 million
for three projects in the county.
The independent board ok'd
grants, for $900,000 to the
Industrial Development Author-
ity to buy more property to
expand the Commerce Park,
$700,000 for the city of Wau-
chula to expand the city electric
substation, and $271,850 to
Hardee County for water and
wastewater expansion.
The grant money handed out
that morning comes from phos-
phate severance taxes.
Left unspent from the budget
was $382,752, which could go
to the county for water and
wastewater expansion. If the
county after learning what
the Florida Legislature will do
regarding the projects does
not need the money, an applica-
tion from South Florida
Community College will .be
considered.
SFCC had requested
$876,739 for a training facility
for firefighters to be located at
the Hardee Campus. Board
Chairman Bill Lambert said he
did not think SFCC proposed

Hardee Help Center Needs Your Help


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"Our cupboards are bare."
Judith George, new executive
director for the Hardee Help
Center, summed up the need of
her agency for the community's
help.
For the three-month period
June-August, the Help Center
had income of $17,155 and
expenses of $18,119. Although
the center is the recipient of a
bunch of large and small grants,
they are all earmarked for spe-
cific expenses and cannot be
shifted around in the budget,
explained George.
She was hired on Sept. 4 to
lead the agency sponsored by
the Hardee County Ministerial
Association. Along with the
Thrift Store on North Seventh
Avenue, it helps meet a huge
variety of needs throughout the
county.


Besides George, there are two
other full-time employees, pro-
gram coordinator Bette Sneider
and case manager Esther
Castillo. Everyone else is a vol-
unteer, some of whom come
three times a week, some only
mornings, some only after-
noons, some on call whenever
most needed.
Part of the financial challenge
of the agency is that only about
half of the salaries of the three
workers is met through the
grants which they administer.
The rest is made up by the Help
Center budget.
When the number of services
the agency provides and the
many hats each employee wears
are listed, it is exhausting.
Before she was officially
hired, George worked for the
agency evenings of the last
week of her employment with
the county. She had just been


told that the application for a
$71,600 grant for the homeless
was due by Sept. 5. Working for


the county for eight years in
human resources, the budget

Kelly's Column
By Jim


SPresident George W. Bush is to be congratulated that America
has not been hit by a terrorist attack since Sept. 11, 2001.
Most all Americans are much more vigilant since 9-11. I hope
this streak will continue indefinitely. The president has a tough job
and has shown strength and resolve in trying circumstances.
It speaks poorly that some extreme Muslims believe people
who do not convert to their religion should be killed. You certain-
ly do not see that point of view in the Christian religion, which I
prefer.

The Hardee varsity Wildcat football team is off to an excellent
2-0 start. The Cats have defeated a couple of strong teams in North
Fort Myers and Fort Meade.
Local coaches teach that CATS stand for Character, Attitude,
Trust and Strength. The Hardee defense, masterminded by John
Sharp, has been very strong.
There are a lot of games left, but so far new head coach Tim
Price reminds us of the TV show "The Price Is Right."
.*. Joe Gicker of Wauchula won last.eek's guess-the-score con-
test with a. pick.of 21-14. 'The actual score was Hardee 22,.Fort
Meade 13.

New medical research has shown that inhaling fumes from
microwaveable popcorn can be hazardous to your lungs. It seems
that the butter coloring/flayoring additive fumes is bad for you.
.: Some of the major companies are going to stop using that
stuff. Some workers have developed lung problems, and now a
consumer developed a lung disease. He or she was a popcorn
addict.
.1K The best way to eat popcorn is the old-fashioned way. Put a lit-'
tl6 vegetable oil in a pan on the stove, add popcorn and pop away
over a medium heat. Using a lid on the pot is recommended unless
you want to play "go fetch." Then melt some real butter and add
salt.

;: My son Jonathan and I went to Gainesville over the weekend
atid saw the No. 5 Florida Gators run up a 40-7 halftime lead over
the Troy Trojans. We watched Troy win the second half but still lost
59-24.
. There were about 90,000 fans, over three times the population
df Hardee County. While there we visited and stayed overnight
with sons Michael and Jeremy, UF students.
It was nice to hear that head coach Steve Spurrier. and his
South Carolina Gamecocks defeated the Georgia Bulldogs between
the hedges in Athens, 16-6. The Gators looked awesome at times
qn offense and special teams. I enjoy being part of Gator Nation. I
also like the other universities in Florida. the all-time Division I
coaching wins matchup between FSU's Bobby Bowden and Penn
State's Joe Paterno is fascinating.

It is very interesting that a former Wauchula resident, Grover
Cleveland Mullins, 50, is running for U.S president. He is a
eemnocrat and lives in Bulls Gap, Tenn.
Grover has had a wide variety of jobs, served in the U.S. Navy,
4nd naturally has opinions in just about everything. He has worked
in-the agricultural fields in Hardee, in prison corrections in Florida
and coal-mining in Kentucky. He ran on the track team at Hardee
High School.
A main reason Grover lives in Tennessee is he loves to fish for
bass and catfish. He needs signatures to get on several state ballots
Aiid seeks financial donations for his campaign. See a related story
and picture elsewhere in this week's Herald-Advocate.

put George in a good position to
get the grant, usually due in
November, completed by this
year's deadline.
The center is open from
Monday through Friday from 9
a.m. to noon and from 1 to 4
p.m. and offers services in
application for state financial
- assistance (Medicaid, AFDC),
emergency assistance for utili-
ties, food, rent, gas and many
other things. Applications are
thoroughly processed to avoid
duplication or a person taking
advantage of the system. In
fact, an intercounty web site
allows them to verify receipt of
assistance in surrounding coun-
ties as well.
The success stories are what
keeps the center staff. so dedi-
cated. Sieider related a story of
a person living in a storage shed
following a hospitalization and
medical crisis. Combining re-
sources, Sneider helped her get
rent, groceries, prescriptions,
clothing, and gas to go for a job
application. Today, she is on her
feet and doing well. "That's it
for the year, we can only help
the person once a year for two
years and then they are expect-
ed to assume their own respon-
sibility," said Sneider.
"Our numbers would blow
you away. There is much need,
but the response is structured,
there are stiff regulations," she
added.
"But, we need the public's
help to keep helping others. We
need paper goods, personal sup-
plies, canned foods and frozen,
meats (we have a freezer).
Hunters, people closing up a
relative's home, those who
want to contribute locally,
everyone can help," said
Sneider. Attached to this article
is a list of the most needed
items. Money is also needed to
purchase those items when the
shelves are empty and help
'meet the portion -of expenses
not covered by grants.

Kelly he would use a third of a
stick of dynamite, put it in her
bedroom and blow her up.
And, Kelly said, Branham
gave him a day, Friday. He
would kill his wife on FOiday.
When Branham did not carry
out his plan on Friday, he went
so far as to call Kelly to tell him
of the change in plan. "He left a
message on my answering
machine, to the effect, 'I wasn't
able to do what I told you I was
going to do on Friday, some-
thing came up.'4omething to
that effect," Kelly said as jurors
listened carefully, some taking
notes. 11
Houchin pointed out through
questioning that Kelly's next
call from Michael Branham
came just days later, late on
Tuesday night, July 26, 2005.
Michael Branham told Kelly he
had shot Jani. Kelly immediate-
ly got up from his bed and
drove to his friends' home.
Under his cross-examination
of Kelly, defense lawyer
Lawrence Shearer gave the
jurors another way to view the
conversation between the two
men. "Mr. Branham had a good
sense of humor. He spoke his
mind. Did he sometimes say
things for shock value," Shearer
asked Kelly,
"That's a good way to put it,"
Kelly answered. "He often said
things for shock value." Then
he added, "But never before did
I follow through on it it was
not like that I never called
anyone."
Kelly had testified that after
Michael Branham's statement,
he called Jani and told her he
was concerned for her safety.
He offered her a place to stay.
As for the message on the
answering machine, Shearer
asked Kelly where the tape was.
"I erase all of my messages,"
Kelly said.
"It was not turned over to law
enforcement?" he inquired.
"No."
"And on this recording we
don't have," Shearer questioned
further, "he didn't say this thing

Sneider and Castillo have
become expert at finding out
which helps which need, coor-
dinating them for the best use of
the clients.
Through its Homeless
Management Data System, the
agency is also a clearing house

locating other resources for

who has received any kind of

Florida area.

"I told it as best as I recall,"
Kelly responded.
Shearer then' asked Kelly if
the two men talked about a vari-
ety of things during that hour-
long visit on Wednesday or
Thursday night, if maybe there
even was a mention of some-
thing else Michael Branham
was going to do.
"We talked about many
things," Kelly said. "We could
have talked about things he was
going to do in coming weeks."
The prosecuting team of
Houchin and Assistant State
Attorney Gene Malpas brought
in witness after witness on
Friday, building their case for
pre-meditation.
On Friday, jurors also heard a
tape of the 911 call Michael
Branham made following the
shooting.
"I need an ambulance," he
said. "My wife tried to kill me
and I shot her. She came at me
with a pair of scissors," he told
the emergency dispatcher. "I
tried to give her CPR."
As the two-minute exchange
continued, Branham said, "She
was coming into the living
room with the scissors she was
coming at me with. I always
keep a gun by my chair."
On Monday, the state's case
included chain-of-evidence tes-
timony, and a detailed descrip-
tion of the crime scene and Jani
Branham's gunshot wounds by
Det. Tom Ouverson, a crime
scene investigator with the
Highlands County Sheriffs
Office who assisted in the probe
into the homicide.
But the most dramatic testi-
mony and evidence came on
Tuesday, as medical examiner
Dr. Vera Volnikh spent one and
half hours on the stand under
direct questioning by Houchin.
Autopsy photos were dis-
played for the jury, with each
wound marked and identified.
Houchin used a diagram of the
front and back of a female body,
propped on an easel, and dry-
erase markers to further illus-


sorship of the Hardee County
Ministerial Association. Its
president is the Rev. Jimmy
Morse, of- Nifthside Baptist
Church. He is also head of the
Board of Directors of the
Hardee Help Center.
There have been some
changes in the other members.
Rev. Randy Johnson of Reality
Ranch Ministry has replaced
the Rev. Brook Larrison of
Faith Presbyterian Church.
Pastor Steve Polk of the First
United Methodist Church of
Bowling Green has replaced
Rev. Bill Knight of the Wau-
chula First United Methodist
Church when he moved to
Chiefland. Rev. Jeff Ramsland,
who was executive director, has
taken a ministry in Cherokee,
N.C. ,
Other ministers on the Help
Center board are Rev. Jim
Williams of First Baptist
Church of Bowling Green and
Rev. Wendell Smith of Faith
Temple Church of God. Lay
members representing various
community organizations and
businesses include Belva
Vance, Jim See, David
Singletary and Mike Manley.
George emphasized that all
ministers of the 83 churches in
the county are welcome at the
monthly meetings of the minis-
terial association and help cen-
ter, which meet the first
Tuesday of the month at noon at
Florida Hospital-Wauchula.
Only seven or eight attend, she
says.
,Volunteers are always needed
at the center, to assist in pack-
aging food, handling the
phones, making brochures, fil-
ing, or any number of other
tasks which would .free staff for
the direct client assistance.
The center is moving to a
new location near the end of
this year. When the building is
completed, it will be on Green
Street, whereit intersects with
Griffin Road. The current cen-
ter, the old Ausley Memorial
Library, will become the new
home of the Wauchula Garden
Club, whose building on the
adjacent park grounds was
destroyed by the hurricanes. '
George says she plans to visit
other agencies, organizations
and churches to get people
involved in the local ministry.
She noted that after the 2004
hurricanes, she learned a lot
about coordinating emergency
supplies of food and water.
"Many people helped then.
4 Everyone needed help.' I love
what we're doing and remind
people that there's a lot of need
here.

shot entrance wound and exit
wound.
Volnikh carefully described
the damage done by each bullet
fired.
With just one more witness
Tuesday morning, Det. Sgt.
John Shivers of the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office, the
state rested its case.
The jury was sent home for
the day.
As court remained in session,
however, Shearer argued a
motion for acquittal before
Circuit Judge J. Michael
Hunter, was denied, and then
rested the defense's case.
Jurors returned to the court-
room Wednesday morning to
hear Shearer officially rest his
case, and then to listen to clos-
ing arguments from each side.
Following the closings,
jurors were given instruction on
the law by Hunter, and then
retired for deliberations.

complete and comprehensive
trial coverage, including the
jury's verdict.

at least two to four years of col-
lege for the technological
advancement of our nation.
That is paid back by the student
by supplying graduates jobs
upon completion, an employ-
ment program that pays its way
not only now but for future gen-
erations. This in turn will cut
down on unemployment but
will advance our nation as a
whole."
Mullins said, "My mother
and daddy raised me in a
Pentecostal and Southern
Baptist background to believe
in the Ten Commandments, the
golden rules of any society. If
my principles reflect your ideas
in a positive way, I need your
signature and address to get on
the ballot and tell your friends.
"One thing you can count on
is my word, and anyone who
has known me will tell you I
have always kept any promise
or sworn oath and will not
change, now or in the future. I
stand by my word and my God.
I will try to get the Ten
Commandments back in school
and in the courthouses.
"I know how hard it is for the
American citizen to make it on
yesterday's minimum wage.
Being a disabled veteran, I
know what the disabled have to
go through month after month,
usihg their income for medica-
tion, first-hand. I also know
how politicians want to take
every penny that you have,
keeping Americans down and
unable to afford simple luxu-
ries. I know first-hand what it is
like not to have medical cover-
age for me, let alone for a fami-
ly."
His campaign states, "Grover
Cleveland Mullins is the man
America needs. He is the out-
sider in the political game that
knows what America needs.
And though he may not know
everything about politics, he is
experienced with life's
tragedies and triumphs. Life,
ladies and gentlemen, is all that
is needed. Life and doing what
is right for the American people
first and last, but never least."
"If you are sick of the dishon-
esty of politics and want a new
government one for the peo-
ple and by the people the
best approach is to elect new
people to office, no matter what
party affiliation they have. If
you believe in your heart and
soul that they will do the best
for you and America, then put
them in office.
"Put me in office, and I will
serve the American people and
its interests before my own or
anyone else's. I will be there for
America, no matter the cost for
myself, and put a stop to the
selling out and giving away of
America."
Mullins wants people to get
the postcard off his Web site,
put their name and address in
the upper left corner along with
the message "I want Grover
Cleveland Mullins on the bal-
lot," put the date and a stamp,
and mail it to Mullins at 138
Whitaker Road, Bulls Gap, TN
37711. He also needs monetary
contributions.




LAND CODE
Continued From 1A
before the commission for
approval.
The next incorporated recent
ordinances on dilapidated
building into Sect. 2:14.
The county will use the In-
ternational Maintenance Code
definition of an dilapidated
building, with an established
procedure to demolish a build-
ing which is not habitable, an
eyesore or health hazard. After
the owner is cited, notice if pro-
vided by certified mail. A lien is
recorded on the costs of demoli-
tion/removal and violation cita-
tions. When it is enforced, the
county can take the property in
lieu of liens and sell it.
The resident has 120 days to
correct or abate the problem by
bringing the building back to
meeting code or tearing it
down. Failure to do so results in
liens and foreclosure of them.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
asked that the time limit be 180


days because of hurricane situa-
tions.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
agreed but said he wanted some
teeth in the ordinance to get rid
of the worst eyesores. Some-
times neighbors are reluctant to
complain. Zoning should stop
when they see a problem.
County attorney Ken Evers
said "the code people are not
out looking for trouble. They
will stop by several times and
tell the resident.
Staszko said "We will bend
over backwards. We visit, visit
again in seven days, write a let-
ter, wait 30 days before citing
and watch for progress."


"I am here only for the
American voter and have noth-
ing to gain. I do not want fame
or fortune. There would be no
glory except the pleasure of
pulling corruption out of poli-
tics and setting America back
on the path of recovery. If this is
what America wants, let your
voices be heard. Sign my peti-
tion, mail me a postcard, fax me
or call me." His phone number
is 423-235-6814. His fax num-
ber is 423-393-1711.
Mullins said he stands for the
American people. His Web site
gives this information:
"I believe in the Ten Golden
Rules (Ten Commandments). I
believe these rules should be
present in every school house
and court house because they
allow society to live peaceably
with one another. These are the
rules that govern good society.
These are the rules that our
forefathers lived by and gov-
erned by. Anyone in America
that does not believe or live by
these rules is not good for soci-
ety as a whole, and if you are
not American enough to hold to
these values, you should either
find a way to believe in them or
leave America.
"Grover does not believe in
abortions, except in cases of
incest, rape and when the moth-
er's life is in danger. Grover
believes in heterosexual mar-
riages, a union that is only
between a man and women.
Grover does not believe that
anyone in a government branch
or business should be allowed
to discriminate against those
who (1) are refused work or (2)
dismissed from work solely
because of sexual preferences.
A person's sexual preference is
his or her right and is between
his or her beliefs and God.
"Grover intends on bringing
the American servicemen and
women home and taking out
Bin Laden and any countries'
top leaders that are harboring
him.
"Grover states that our educa-
tion system and the "No Child
Left Behind" policy is failing.
Subsequently, he intends to
abolish it and create a new sys-
tem that works and advances
America into the best techno-
logically advanced country
there is.
"Failure is not an option.
Grover plans to create a new
medical system that works for
all Americans and stop any pro-
jects outside America that do
not better the American inter-
ests. In Grover's eyes, our focus
had better be on the American
people and on progress instead
of on foreign business or for-
eign governments. If Americans
are going to care and give to
others, it will start at home first.
Only until America is indepen-
dent of others can we stop the
selling out of the American peo-
ple and provide for our chil-
dren's needs. Social Security
can be rebuilt if we equal the
taxes for those making over
$200,000 a year and eliminate
free rides. We need to support
America before there is no
America left to support."


Another issue was public nui-
sances, such as noise. A new
entry prohibits discharging
firearms continually, for an
hour or longer, between a half
hour after dusk and a half hour
before sunrise.
Yet another section dealt with
the definition of junk or inoper-
ative vehicles. The exception is
in A-I (Agricultural, when a
person has Green Belt exemp-
tion) where commercial vehi-
cles are parked during the off-
season.
Unless it is a bona fide sal-
vage yard, the county manag-
er's office can approve up to six
vehicles, more require commis-
sion approval.
Next up was alcoholic bever-
ages, where there are three cat-
egories. A restaurant which has
at least 50 percent of its busi-
ness from the sale of food, but
also has a bar, is monitored by
the state. It must be 500 feet
from schools, day care, church-
es or residential zoning.
A convenience store may
only sell package goods for off-


premise consumption, at least
500 feet from the store and
above-named areas.
Finally, there are bars or
drinking establishments, which
must be 500 feet from a church
or school and 1,500 feet from a
residential-zoned area. There
may be an exception in Planned
Unit Developments or mixed
use neighborhoods now being
planned, such as a gated com-
munity which includes its own
restaurant or club house.
Other changes included street
construction standards, sign
regulations, site plan restric-
tions and concurrency among
the facets of a community
development.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Wauchula City Commis-
sion approving buying a tax
deed on a dilapidated property
on which it is foreclosing code
enforcement liens.
Sitting first as the commis-
sion, then as the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA),
the panel decided that it would
be a worthwhile investment to
pay the back taxes of
$14,518.20.
City attorney Cliff Ables told
the commission that the city
could pay the taxes before a
public auction scheduled for
Sept. 19. Property taxes are
superior to the code enforce-
ment liens, but someone who
purchased the tax deed would
be subject to those liens.
Instead, Ables suggested the
city amend its petition to fore-
close on the nearly $40,000 in
code enforcement liens on the
Makowski-Mitchell property at
South Seventh Avenue and
Lemon Street.
The panel decided it would
be an appropriate use of CRA
funds to pay the tax liens. After
the property is cleaned up, the
city could sell it. It has city util-
ities, making it an attractive
site.

In other action, the commis-
sion:
Held the first public bud-

dential units at the intersection
of Louisiana Avenue and Terrell

purchasing the property and
plhns to build his home there,
an about 5,500-square-foot

agreement is contingent upon
Baker following through on his
'plans. If it doesn't follow
through, the original develop-
er's agreement will remain in
force.
Declined an offer to pur-
chase 2.5 acres adjacent to

has been ordered and should
come within a month. City staff

building and its offices should
be ready before Christmas. One
of the tenants will be the
Hardee Help Center. When it
moves, the Garden Club will
move into the renovated Ausley
Memorial Library at Eighth and
Palmetto.
Requested Rick Schap-
pacher of Kimley-Horn to work
with staff on the state Depart-
ment of Transportation plans
for streetscaping. They hope to
have a notice to proceed by the
end of September to use the
funds before the deadline for
them is expired. A $300,000
DOT plan for renovation of the
depot is also under way.
Discussed possible prob-
lems and not renewing the lease
with Celebration Church for use
of the city auditorium for wor-
ship services. There are allega-
tions they have expanded to use
the hallways and other areas for
child care or pre-school activity,
and taken things from the freez-
er and other city areas.
Approved final reading of
three ordinances annexing 1.46
acres at West Main Street and
Ohio Avenue for EMBR Con-
struction to build four single-
family homes. The property
will change from county R-3
medium density to city R-I sin-
gle-family residential.
Approved final reading of
an ordinance to close the platted
alleyway between the Garden
Club property and adjacent
homeowner as the alleyway has
never been utilized and is over-
grown. The two properties will
split ownership of the 15-foot
strip.

By BRETT JARNAGIN
For The Herald-Advocate
A pair of crashes in Zolfo
Springs last Thursday sent one
woman to the hospital.
The first of the two crashes
happened at 11 a.m. at the inter-
section of U.S. 17 and Fifth
Street.
Karen Whaley, of Arcadia,
was traveling northbound on
U.S. 17 in her 2005 Mazda
when she failed to slow down
and struck the side of a 2004
Ford F250 also traveling north-
bound, said Police Chief Chris
Baty.
The Ford was being driven by
John Causey Jr., of Lake Placid,
and was struck in the left dri-
ver's side portion of the vehicle.
Baty's report said that
Whaley was not wearing a seat-
belt at the time, and was ejected
from the vehicle when it began
to roll. She was airlifted to
Tampa General Hospital and
was listed in critical condition.
Causey was not injured.
The second accident hap-


opened at 1:49 p.m. at the inter-
section of U.S. 17 and SR 64.
William Whitaker, of Bartow,
was traveling north on U.S. 17
when he stopped at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 17 and SR 64 to
make a left hand turn to travel
west on SR 64, said Baty in his
report.
Fidel Rodriguez, of Lake
Placid, was traveling south-
bound on U.S. 17.
Baty noted that Whitaker
failed to yield to Rodriguez as
he made his turn and struck the
1999 Isuzu he was driving.
As the vehicles collided,
Whitaker's Mazda spun across
the road and into a 1996
Peterbilt driven by Shawn
Townsend, of Okel h obee, said
Baty.
Whitaker sustained minor
injuries and was taken to
Florida Hospital Wauchula, the
other two drivers remained
unharmed. Baty charged Whit-,
aker with failing to yield to
oncoming traffic,


Should Tent Sales Be Limited?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Local auto dealers are con-
cerned about the proliferation
of tent sales.
Repeated complaints about
their effect on local vehicle
sales spurred the Hardee
County Commission to consid-
er how they can be restrained.
"We have an obligation to
protect local businesses which
pay taxes. They come in here
free and cut the local business,"
said Commissioner Minor
Bryant.
County Manager Lex Albrit-
ton said "We discussed this in
May. We are getting calls. We
can't say no, but can control
them. They set up a temporary
-'office" and do the title work
elsewhere. We are getting com-
plaints that people are not get-
ting their titles."
The Fire-Rescue Department
must check the tent if it is 200
square feet or more, said Al-
britton.
Commissioner Nick Timmer-
man suggested a Hardee ordi-
nance similar to Highlands
County with liability insurance,
*occupational fees and other
facets, and that it include vehi-
cles, boats, ATVs and motorcy-
cles.
Attorney Ken Evers said he
could prepare a draft, pulling
out the best parts from ordi-
nances of other counties.
However, there would need to
be an interlocal agreement or
the municipalities would have
to have a similar ordinance, he
said.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
Approved a work order
for engineering services in
preparation for closing Phase I
of the county landfill. Solid
Waste Department Director
Teresa Carver said a flyover
was being completed later in
the day to get an aerial topogra-
phy and see how much landfill
space was left.
Closure of the old cell will be
done in steps, some this year
and some in fiscal year 2008-
09. The current landfill section
will last another five or six
months. "We are required to
start permitting for the closure
at least 90 days before it is
going to happen,"
said Carver.
"It's amazing how you have
stretched this out by building it
up," commented Timmerman.
Approved the use of
Hardee Lakes Park for the Nov.
10 Hardee County Family
YMCA Veteran's Day 5K with
free admission to the park that
day. The event will include a
half-day community festival
that celebrates an autumn grand
opening of the Hardee Lakes
trails. Other events will include
a pie contest and bake sale, pre-
sentations by community and
civic groups like 4-H or Boy
Scouts and a shark's tooth
hunt.
Any organization which
wants to have a booth for arts,
crafts, woodworking or other
skills, or wants to sponsor a
promotional item for participant
registration bags, should con-
tact Bonnie Horton at the
YMCA, 773-6445.
Discussed the need for a
replacement for Tommie
Underwood, who resigned from
the Planning and Zoning Board.
"It's a very important job and
we are looking for more than
one applicant. We also need
people to serve on other


boards," said Commissioner
Dale Johnson.
Anyone interest in serving on
any of the county boards should
contact the county manager's
office at 773-6952.
Approved a minor subdi-
vision plat for the 17-acre
McCready Gemini Subdivision
on the south side of SR 64
northeast of Broadus Williams
Road.

Hardee Wildcat football is looking good, winning its first two
games of the season, taking North Fort Myers 20-7 and always
tough Fort Meade 22-13. In the most recent state poll, Hardee is
ranked fifth in Class 3A.
The pair of home wins ups the Hardee home game win streak
to 29 games, dating back to Sept. 19, 2001, when the 'Cats lost at
home to Lake Wales 39-6.
They began a regular-season home streak with a Nov. 2, 2001
56-21 victory over the DeSoto Bulldogs and have won every regu-
lar season home game since. Coach Tim Price and his 2007
Wildcats hope to continue that streak.
In 2002, Hardee beat Avon Park, Palmetto, Bartow, Sebring
and Mulberry in home games. In 2003, it was Belen Jesuit,
Sebring, Mulberry, Cocoa Beach, Port Charlotte and DeSoto. In
2004, it was Fort Meade, Estero, Sebring, Palmetto and Avon Park.
In 2005, it was Fort Meade, Bartow, Haines City, DeSoto and
Orlando Colonial. Last year it was Cape Coral Mariner, Port
Charlotte, St. Petersburg Catholic, Sebring and Avon Park.
Bartow ended Hardee's four-year, 46-game win streak last
year, but the 'Cats will just start another. Wouldn't it be great to go
10-0 this year!

The JV 'Cats, the varsity starts of tomorrow, won their open-
ing game, but came up behind at Fort Meade last Thursday, pri-
marily due to four turnovers. The junior 'Cats had to begin over
when starting quarterback Connor Davis was moved up to the var-
sity level due to the injury to Ezayi Youyoute. Freshman Scott
Donaldson stepped in the JV.top spot and, of course, that caused
several adjustments, evident in the game against the junior Miners.

Hardee swim teams are doing well. The boys team is unbeat-
en. The Wildcats won at Lemon Bay last week. The girls were out-
numbered by three to one, with the home Lemon Bay squad fill-

Coach Dick Daggett has scheduled several meets against some
of the southern teams not in our district but tougher competition to
help prepare Hardee for the district, regional and, hopefully, state
competition.

Girls volleyball is on an uphill climb, with the challenge of
blending a team of freshmen, sophs and upperclassmen. The
progress they are making is phenomenal, but concentration on the
fundamentals and not playing out of control could help a lot. Some
of the players are trying to do too much. Relying on each other
would make them winners and it's only a matter of time until this
happens. There are only three seniors on the team.

Some Hardee girls played in a weekend softball team call the
Southern Shockers. Included from Hardee were coach Doug
Knight and players Kayla Powell, Makayla Jeter, Kendall Gough,
Christa Shiver, Kayla Knight, Savanna~h Selph and Courtney Parks.

Golfers, there's a pair of benefit events coming up, both on
Sept. 22.
The second annual Magnolia Manor Open will be at Torrey
Oaks, midway between Wauchula and Bowling Green. It is a four-
person scramble, at a cost of $40 per person, and includes cash and
other prizes. There will be food and desserts served. All proceeds
help the Magnolia Manor Park. For more information, visit
www.magnoliamanorpark.com or call Torrey Oaks at 767-0302.
There will also be the third annual Orange Blossom Pregnancy
Care Centers Inc. tournament, "Golf Fore Life," which will be held
at the Highlands Ridge north course in Avon Park. It will be a
flighted four-person scramble, at a cost of $55, which includes
golf, lunch and prizes. The Center offers services to women in
Hardee and Highlands counties. Sponsors and contributions to help
the tournament are needed, go to www.obpcc.org or call 863-453-
0307.

Bikers, also coming up is a benefit bike run on Saturday for the
late Bobby Dwayne Ackley. It will start at 11 a.m. at Pioneer Park
near the boat ramp at Rock Lake.
It will go west, south and finally end at the Lettuce Lake Boat
ramp off CR 761 in Highlands County for a time of tribute. After
the return trip, there will be a time of refreshments and food at a
cost of $5. Tee-shirts will also be available. All proceeds will go to
his wife Michelle and children Bobby and Darla. Bike riders and
those in cars are welcome. For more information, call Richie Evans
at 781-6396.

GRANT $$$
Continued From 1A
project met the criteria for bona
fide economic development
when other fire colleges are
located close to Hardee County.
The board spent over two
hours hearing applicants for the
funding and trying to decide
how to fund the projects, whole
or in part. The requests for
funding amounted to $4.2 mil-
lion while the board had $2.25
million to award in grants dui-
ing this funding cycle.
The county requested
$271,850, down from an origi-
nal request for $824,839. The
total project cost for water and
wastewater expansion is $6 Ahil-
lion.
The city of Wauchula, repre-
sented by City Manager
Richard Giroux, requested $1.5
million for electric substation
rehabilitation and expansion.
The project cost is estimated at
$2.2 million. Giroux said the
city plans to expand the capaci-
ty from 16.8 megawatts to 32
mega watts. The normal present
capacity is 15 megawatts and
during emergencies 16.8
megawatts.
The Industrial Development
Authority, represent by Lavon
Cobb and Rick Justice, request-
ed $1 million for expansion of
the Commerce Park located
south of SR 62 just west of U.S.
17.
South Florida Community
College, represented by Kevin
Brown, estimated the cost at $1
million to establish a training
facility for firefighters at the
local campus.
The authority receives money
from phosphate severance taxes
returned to the county by the
state. The tax is based on the
tonnage of phosphate mined in
the county. Lambert fought hard
to have the county's share
increased when he was chair-
man of the County Commission
before losing re-election in
2004.
Members of the authority and

'Cats Drop Miners 22-13; Visit Riverdale Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat home
game win streak is now 29.
The 'Cats outlasted the Fort
Meade Miners 22-12, with the
Miners' 18 penalties, proba-
bly costing them the game last
Friday night in Wauchula.
This week the Wildcats take


on the Riverdale Raiders at
their den. They may be without
their star running back but
sophomore quarterback Nathan
Gahafer has stepped u to
replace junior Dustin Green-
well. The Raiders lost their
game last Friday night.
In last week's game, Fort
Meade beat Hardee in almost


all categories, but the one that
mattered the most may have
been the 18 penalties for 166.5
yards and two rejections, defen-
sive back Richard Haygood and
running back Tamorris Grace,
who scored one of his team's
touchdowns.
Hardee had the best statistic
on the scoreboard, where, three


Lance Mason (42) and unknown companion sack Fort Meade quarterback Rumeal
Carlton.


TDs, a safety and two PATs
combined for 22 points, while
allowing the Miners just 13.
The three players of the week
were instrumental in Hardee's
win. Offensively, it was senior
Jimmy Cimeus with touchdown
runs of 13 and 22 yards as part
of his 11 carries for 54 tough
yards.
Defensively, it was junior
Nolan Neuhouser who had a
breakout game with an inter-
ception, fumble recovery, sack
and four tackles, one for a loss..
On Special Teams, it was
junior Lance Mason coming up
with a caused fumble, a blocked
punt, and three tackles, one for
a loss and one sack.
Together, Hardee backs accu-
mulated 133 yards on 30 car-
ries. Cimeus led with 54 yards,
followed by quarterback Jordan
Grimsley with 46, Jayquan
Gandy with 34, Kelsheem
White six,' Olnel Virgile five
and freshman Jarius Lindsey
just one carry, but it was for a
two-yard TD.
The defense posted good
numbers as well. Beside
Neuhouser and Mason, there
was Gerardo Villegas with a
fumble recovery, pass breakout
and 3.5 tackles. Defensive
leader David Newcomb set the
tone with 11.5 tackles, three for
a loss and one for a sack. Virgile
and Antjuan Jones each had a
half dozen tackles, Postene
Louisjeune five and Logan
Thomas and Wade Mahoney
each four. Mahoney also had
three pass breakups to keep Fort
Meade unsuccessful in its pass-
ing game. The Miners were
only five-of-15 and suffered
one interception.
Head coach Tim Price was
pleased with his team's 100 per-
cent effort. It was Sharp's
(defensive coordinator John
Sharp) that made it so tough.
The kids just played with a lot
of heart. Their integrity and
character is what won this game
for us.


DIRECTIONS TO RIVERDALE GAME
To get to the game at Riverdale, go south on U.S. 17 to
Arcadia. Turn left (east) on SR 70 and proceed about three
miles. Turn South on SR 31 and go about 36 miles to
where it dead-ends into SR 80. Turn left -(east) on SR 80..
Go about four miles. At a red-light intersection (Wendy's:
on corner), turn right. School is on right, 2815 Buckinharpm
Road, Fort Myers.


"It was a game of inches.
Early in the second half we had
no answer for them, but Coach
(Steve) Rewis,.suggested Olnel
Virgile needed to move up a
step to better block for Jimmy
Cimeus and he did and it
worked, putting the game
away," commented Price.
Fort Meade won the coin toss
and deferred to the second half.
Hardee got going at its 20-yard.
line after a touchback. Cimeus
got a couple of carries, Gandy
another one or two and Hardee
had a first down. However, a
fumble turned the ball over to
Fort Meade on the Hardee 41.
An equipment penalty put the
Miners back five yards. Grace
and Onterio McCalebb were
held in check. At a fourth and 4,
Fort Meade elected to try a 53-


yard field goal. A false start-
penalty moved them back fiv'
yards. After a time-out, the.
Miners decided to go for the
first down. McCalebb drew the,
assignment, but was stopped by
Louisjeune short of the needed
yardage.
*Hardee quickly was forced to
punt and Fort Meade started
over on its 25. A short Grace
run was followed by a spectac-
ular play. Miner junior quarter-
back Rumeal Carlton was
chased into the end zone but
managed to get a pass off.*to
Grace and he raced down the
west sideline 100 yards, somer;-
saulting into the end zone.
Double penalties nullified the
apparent touchdown. Illegal use
of the hands and unsportsmafn-

Nolan Neuhouser (19) intercepted a Miner pass which could have been a touchdown.
The pass had been tipped by teammate Wade Mahoney (1), who leads the scurry away

like penalties put the Miners
hack on their own 44.
-Jimmy Office had a short
gain, a pass went awry and
M .Calebb was stopped for no
Gain. Freddy Cortez punted the
ball, but as Grimsley set up for
aTair catch, he was pulled away.
The interference call cost Fort
Meade 15 yards and a rekick.
The low snap was partially
blocked and rolled dead at the
Hardee 42.
;This time Hardee was able to
ca italize on it. Grimsley went
30 yards on the quarterback
keeper. Cimeus went the final
1,3 yards. The Jose Castaneda
kick was good. With just 58.3
seconds left in the first quarter,
I-ardee had a 7-0 lead.
:As the game rolled into the
second period, the Miners were
again forced to punt. Another
personal foul on kick return
moved Hardee up to its 42.
When Hardee, in turn, punted,
aft illegal block in the back took
t!o, Miners back to their own 14
a' fumble gave the ball to the
Wildcats.
Short gains moved the 'Cats
close, until Lindsey carried it
iftto the end zone. A penalty on
the Point After Kick put Hardee
five yards away for the kick. It
had the distance but curved
wide. Hardee led 13-0.
On its next possession, Fort
Meade made good progress,
especially with a McCalebb 41-
yard run, saved by Mahoney
catching up to him. Six plays
later, the Miners were looking
at first and goal at the 7. Hardee
gave ground grudgingly, one
yard, another, yet a third as each
of the Miner backs tried the
line. Finally Grace angled his
way through for the last two
yards. The Cortez kick made it
13-7
There was no more scoring in
the first half. A Miner 51-yard
field goal attempt was blocked
by Neuhouser and Mahoney.
The teams exchanged posses-
sions early in the second half.
Then, Hardee pushed the
Miners backward. On a fourth
and four, there was a bad snap
for a punt. Cortez tried to get it
'away anyway. It was blocked
by Mason and rolled into the
end zone, upping Hardee's
score to 15.
On the ensuing free kick,
Gandy returned the ball 36
yards. It was to no avail, as
Hardee was forced to punt.
After its tries, Fort Meade
opted to punt, nearly blocked by
Newcomb. Grimsley was hit as
he was waiting for a fair catch


and the WilVUcat crowd began to
loudly bo .Hardee could have
forced a rekick, but elected to
take possession plus a 15-yard
Fort Meade penalty, taking the
ball to the Miner 38.
The 'Cats made slow
progress, but elected to try for
the fourth down. Fort Meade
took up the challenge, with
McCalebb breaking loose for
67 yards. Cimeus caught up
with him, held him by the shirt-
tail and downed him at the one-
yard line as the third quarter
ended.
Hardee held off the Miners
for two plays, but again
McCalebb slipped through for
the score. With the game at 15-
13, Fort Meade tried a two-
point conversion. A delay of
game penalty moved the Miners
back to the 8 and a pass to
Office in the corner of the end
zone was incorpplete. It
remained 15-13.
Again, it was an exchange of
possessions. The final time, the
Miner short punt rolled dead at
the Hardee 47. Another pair of
penalties, including an ejection
of Haygood, and Hardee was at
the Miner 24.
Grimsley took the keeper to
the 22-yard line. Cimeus cut
through and down the left side
for the score. With the
Castaneda kick, it was a 22-13
game with just 3:43 left in the
game.
Fort Meade started at the
Wildcat 49 and went backward
five yards. Going to their pass-
ing game, the Miners tried
unsuccessfully to move down-
field. One pass made 19 yards,
but others were knocked down .
A pass interference call on
Hardee moved the Miners with-
in a dozen yards of the Hardee
goal line.
Mahoney broke up a pass.
Cimeus another. Finally, a
tipped pass was intercepted by
Neuhouser and gave Hardee the
ball at its 18 with just 59.3 sec-
onds left in the game. Grimsley
had only to take a knee three
times.
In the post-game huddle, all
the Hardee coaches spoke,
telling the Wildcats they did a
good job, showed a lot of
Wildcat heart. "Adversity
makes or breaks men, and
tonight it made men of you,"
commented Rewis.
"The clip and unsportsman-
ship penalty cost the Miners. It
took back a 100-yard TD. The
ejcctions"(for two Miners) were
because of what they said, not
what they did." concluded
Price.


Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well, Football Fans, two weeks into the season and some stun-
ning things are already reshaping the college landscape. The USF
Bulls have served notice that they are for real and will be a player
in the Big East and in Florida. After reading the internet message
boards of the state schools today, it's obvious the other "Big"
schools are a little nervous. The recruiting impact was the hottest
topic. The Orlando Sentinel recently had an online survey asking"
Who is the second best team in Florida after the Gators" ? USF was
the winner and the win over Auburn confirms it. Wonder if after the
Florida-Auburn game a new poll will ask simply "Who is the best
college team in Florida"?
Are the television executives at ABC-ESPN out of their
minds? Will they really broadcast the Notre Dame versus Michigan
game in the 3:30 Prime Spot next weekend? Notre Dame has not
scored an offensive touchdown in either game. They have no run-
ning game and a suspect passing game. Michigan could not even
make the 1-AA playoffs. Surely, those folks at the top will make a
schedule change? Neither of those teams deserve to be on anything
but pay per view for their own fans.
Virginia Tech is the self-proclaimed "America's Team" this
year. LSU must not be very patriotic. The Tigers gave the boys
from VPI a bigger whipping than Michael Vick's dogs. The LSU
defense is awesome. The Gators could be in for a long "Louisiana
Saturday Night" in October that they may want to forget.
The Oklahoma Sooners are the surprise team ip,,2007, in my
humble opinion. The Big 12 could return to normal wWith a Texas-
Oklahoma showdown like the old days.Cincinnati ook Oregon
State to the woodshed also. USF is obvious in the hunt for a sur-
prize team also.
The Heisman Trophy Race is on and preliminary wisdom says
the winner will come.from the Big East. That is, of course, if the
voters are not split with so many deserving prospects in the con-
ference. Rutgers back Ray Rice and WVUs Steve Slaton lead the
nation in touchdowns while QBs Brian Brohm and Pat White have
been impressive in each player's own way, Brohm through the air
and White running and throwing the ball.

The Swami's Top 10 for week two:
1. West Virginia Mountaineer offense averages over 500
yards per game.
2. LSU- Best defense in college football.
3. Southern Cal The experts say they are this good. We
shall see.
4. Florida Defending Champs are primed for the SEC
schedule.
5. Louisville Most prolific passing offense in college foot-
ball.
6. Texas Big 12 power is back.
7. Rutgers Ray Rice and Mike Teel are getting it done.
8. USF Leavitt is underpaid whatever his salary is.
9. California DeSean Jackson is the real deal.
10. Penn State Just out of respect for Joe Paterno.

Now for this week's Bill O' Fare . .
1. Tennessee at Florida after two scimmages, the Gators
are ready to begin the season. UF 38 Tennessee 21.
2. West Virginia at Maryland used to be a real head-knock-
ing rival game under Jerry Claiborne and Don Nehlen. The
Dynamic Duo of White and Slaton turn it into a rout. WVU 55
Maryland 20.
3. New Hampshire at Marshall Herd led West Virginia at
the half list week. That show-of promise for 2007 will be turned
into a home rout this week. Marshall 56 U of New Hampshire 17.
4. Southern Cal at Nebraska Huskers didn't look like world
beaters against Wake but at home in Lincoln look for a much dif-
ferent game. Still, USC escapes. USC 33 Nebraska 24.
5. Texas at UCF Gameday and opening a new stadium
make this the most anticipated game in UCF history. Laugh if you
must, but I'm calling a major upset. UCF 27 Texas 24.
6. FSU at Colorado Noles may be going "Rocky Mountain
High" but the Buffs stampede. Colorado 31 FSU 17.
7. FlU at Miami rematch of the riot in the Orange Bowl.
Will Shannon have the Canes under control? Miami 45 FIU 10.
8. Boston College at Georgia Tech- The Jackets are another
surprise in 2007. GT 34 BC 21.
9. Arkansas at Alabama Hogs get rolled by the Tide.
Alabama 27 Arkansas 24.
10. Cincinnati at Miami, Ohio Bearcats go to 3-0. UC 47
Miami 16.
11. Louisville at Kentucky Battle of the Blue Grass State
will see some offense. Louisville 62 UK 35.
12. Illinois at Syracuse Orange, will you please quit
embarrassing the Big East? This is Zook coming in. Even you have
a chance this week. Illinois 33 Syracuse 13.
13. Southern Miss at East Carolina Good CUSA Matchup.
USM 43 ECU 27.
14. Mississippi State at Auburn Oh my, Bulldogs get the
post-USF rage of Auburn. Auburn 41 MSU 13.
15. Pitt at Michigan State Every Big East team except
Syracuse is unbeaten. What do you say Wannstedt, can you keep
the ball rolling? It's doubtful. Michigan State 28 Pitt 17.
16. New Orleans at Tampa Bay Bush or his dog won't give
up the recipe for yardage. Saints 27 Bucs 23.
17. Atlanta at Jacksonville Jags handle this one easily. Jax
31 Atlanta 17.
18. San Diego at New England Pats at home, take it. New
England 34 San Diego 27.
19. Dallas at Miami Cowboys make it a Fish Fry. Dallas 27
Miami 17.
20. Indianapolis at Tennessee Always take Tony's guys.
Colts 34 Titans 23.


There is no psychiatrist in the
world like a puppy licking your
face.

Swimmers Travel Far And Wide


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Ready to meet any challenge
which will help them get better,
the Hardee swim teams went to
Lemon Bay and Sebring last
week.
At the Lemon Bay meet, the
Wildcats won 156-108, while
the Lady 'Cats were outnum-
bered three to one and had to
settle for second place. The
teams also competed against
seven others in the Blackman
Relays on Saturday. Although
Hardee was short-handed, the
boys placed third and the girls
6th,.:
This week's meets include a
visit from Avon Park on
Tuesday and another today
(Thursday) from North Port.
Next week, it is a trip to Lake
Placid on Tuesday and a tri-
meet, at Frostproof with Avon
Park on Thursday.
At Lemon Bay, Hardee boys
won eight of the 11 events. It
started with the team of Tyler
Riobertson, Joe Porter, Josh
Rickett and Dylan Justice com-
pleting the 200 medley relay in
a time of 2.00.72, well ahead of
Lemon Bay's A team of
2:15.47.
'Junior Chris Reid placed sec-
ond in the 200 freestyle and
soph Rickett won the 200 indi-
vidual medley (IM).
Hardee went one, two, three
in, the 50 freestyle with
Robertson, Justice and Isaac
Vasquez coming in ahead of a
trio of Manta Rays.
Soph Jake Willis was a little
over four seconds off the pace
to place second in the 100 but-
te.fly. Porter was third and Sean
McCandless fourth.
Hardee took the first four
sl6ts' in the 100 freestyle, with
Robertson leading Reid,
Vasquez and Kyle Bodeck fol-


lowing in order, ahead of a
quarter of Lemon Bay boys.
Rickett came to the wall in
6:26.6, well ahead of the sec-
ond-place time of 7:09.50.
Justice was third and Brian
Hagans fourth.
Hardee was nosed out in the
200 freestyle relay by about
four seconds, although Lee
Cortez, Vasquez, Bodeck and
Reid stayed close.
Willis and Cortez went one,
two in the 100 backstroke, with
Sheldon fourth and Bradley
Adcox sixth.
Porter won the 100 breast-
stroke by 10 seconds, with
Dustin Spears fourth and
McCandless sixth.
Finally, Hardee won the 400
free relay with Justice, Reid,
. Rickett and Robertson in a time
of 4:04.50, with Lemon Bay
coming in at 4:26.12.
With massive opposition in
the girls events, Hardee was
able to get only one second-
place, when junior Brittany
Wiggins finished the 100
breaststroke in 1:25.57, not far
behind the winning time of
1:24.47.
Several Hardee girls were in
third place. Junior Kaitlin
Justice was third in the 50 free,
100 fly and as part of both 200
and the 400 free relay teams,
which also included Kaitlyn
Kennedy, Kate Krause and
Wiggins.
Kennedy was third in the 500
free, which is getting to be her
specialty. Katie Jernigan was
third in the 100 free.
Other Hardee swimmers
included Kyndall Robertson,
Heather Kouns, Sarah Ezelle,
Chelsea Goolsby, Katiana
Pesquera, Ashley Smith and
Samantha Cowart.
Several of the swimmers had


to opt out of Saturday's
Blackman Relays held at
Sebring because of steer weigh-
ins and other commitments. The
competition included Lake
Placid, Avon Park, All Saints
Academy, Ridge Community,
Lake Region and George
Jenkins as well as Hardee and
Sebring.
Hardee boys came in third
with 224 points, not far behind
Lake Placid at 276 and ahead of
the Red Devils' 222. Hardee
girls were sixth, but ahead of
Avon Park and Ridge.
As a special feature, at the
end, there was a coaches' 100
free relay, with Hardee repre-
sented by coaches Dick
Daggett, Jan Brutus and Tracy
Pate. They beat Ridge and
Sebring, and were less than a
second behind Lake Region and
two seconds behind Jenkins,
three behind All Saints, five
behind Lake Placid and nine
behind Avon Park coaches.
Events were a combination of
girls, boys and mixed, all in
relay fashion.
Hardee's only victory was the
boys 200 free, with Porter,
Reid, Justice and Robertson
combining talents to come in at
1:44.60, ahead of Sebring
which finished at 1:48.91.
Hardee girls placed second in
the 100-yard freestyle, in at
57.88, close to the 57.75 of win-
ner Jenkins and just ahead of
Sebring's 57.90. Jernigan,
Goolsby, Krause and Justice
were the strong contingent in
the event.
Others competing for Hardee
included Spears, Willis,
Rickett, Thomas Hogenauer,
Ezelle, McCandless, Wiggins,
Smith, Kennedy, Cowart,
Pesquera, Kyndall Robertson
and Bodeck.

Golf Teams Putting Along


Bayonets are believed to have been invented by Basque soldiers in
the 17th century, who stuck their knives at the ends of their muskets
after running out of gunpowder on the Bayonette Ridge.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
As the season starts, Hardee
golf is doing well.
The boys team opened the
season with a pair of matches,
winning a tri-match and placing
second in a quad-match. The
girls split in a tri-match at Avon
Park.
This week, the boys were at
Frostproof on Tuesday and
greet Lake Wales today (Thurs-
day), while the girls have only
Thiusday matches from here on
out. This week, they ,go to
DeSoto today for a quad-match.
Next week, the boys will
compete in the Monday-
Tuesday Hawkins Invitational
at Sebring and go to Avon Park
on Thursday, while the girls
host a quad-match with DeSoto,
Avon Park and Lake Placid.
In- boys' action last week,
Haidee went to DeSoto on
Tuesday and came out on top of
theqpile with a team score of
163" Port Charlotte carded 196
and DeSoto 233.
Senior Kaleb Saunders led
th6 pack around the course,
coming home with a 39 with


three birdies. Juniors Brek
McClenithan and Ben Krause
were next, each carding a 41and
each with one birdie. Classmate
Jake Crews came in at 42.
Seniors James Oliff and Kyle
Cobb rounded out the scoring
with 46 and 49.
"I was pleased with the
scores for the first match. Most
did well except for a hole or
two. There were a couple of
reckless gambles which added
needless strokes. Hopefully,
course management will im-
prove as the season progress-
es," commented coach George
Heine.
Two days later, Hardee went
to Sebring for a quad-match,
won by the Blue Streaks with
165. Hardee was four strokes
back at 169, ahead of Avon
Park at 172 and George Jenkins
at 175, upping Hardee's overall
record to 4-1.
For Hardee, it was Krause
leading the way with a 41,
despite a triple bogey on the last
hole "which cost him a good
score." Saunders had a 42, also
with a triple bogey on the last
hole. Saunders sank a pair of


birdies and Krause one.
McClenithan came in at 42
and Olliff was the last player
who added to the team score
with a 44. Crews had a 46 and
freshman Taylor Barlow had 57
in his first varsity golf match. "I
expect him to show better
results as he gains more experi-
ence," said Heine.
"Conditions were very windy
and I believe this added a cou-
ple of strokes to everyone's
score. When in trouble, they
should play the shot they know
they can play, not the shot they
hope they can make," conclud-
ed Heine.
On the distaff side of the
ledger, Hardee girls came in
behind Avon Park, but beat
Lake Placid by two shots.
Senior Nicole Bromley led the
local girls around the course
with a 58. Classmate Ciara
Chancey missed the match.
Others competing for Hardee
were freshman Kara Norris, in
at 61, another freshman Emily
Williams at 64 and classmate
Lauren Moore at 71. Soph
Macey Reas, in her first official
match, came in at 79.

supervision of the adult permit
holder, to harvest his or her own

"These special-opportunity
dove fields are planted and

3rd Amoebic Case Confirmed


The Florida Department of
Health (DOH) along with the
Orange County Health
Department and the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) is confirming a third
Naegleria fowleri amoeba
infection that resulted in the
death of a Florida child earlier
this summer. It is believed to be
the third case in Central Florida
this summer and the public is
urged to take proper precau-
tions.
The results from the CDC
confirm earlier findings from
the Orange County Medical
Examiner indicating an amoe-
ba-related infection of the brain
or spinal cord.
Symptoms of an infection
include headache, fever, nausea
and vomiting, stiff neck, confu-
sion, lack of attention to people
and surroundings, loss of bal-
ance and bodily control and
seizures and hallucinations. The
public is urged to contact a
medical professional immedi-

ately if experiencing any of
these symptoms.
The DOH is offering the fol-
lowing precautions:
Wear nose clips or hold
your nose when swimming,
jumping or diving in any
fresh water Closed nostrils
reduce your risk of infection by
amoeba, a rare but life-threaten-
ing condition.
Do not swim in warm,
standing water, such as ponds,
lakes, storm water retention
areas or in areas posted "No
Swimming" Bacteria and
other harmful organisms thrive
in warm, standing water. Seek
prompt medical attention if you
become ill after swimming in
freshwater.
Avoid areas with obvious
algal blooms Contact with
algal blooms may cause skin
rash, runny nose and burning
eyes.
Naegleria is a microscopic
amoeba most commonly found
in the upper layer of sediment


in the bottom of lakes and
ponds with mud floors. The
threat of infection, although
rare, in-creases during the sum-
mer months when the water
temperature rises.
Infection with Naegleria-
fowleri causes the disease pri-
mary amoebic meningoen-
cephalitis (PAM). The amoeba
invades the brain and the dis-
ease progresses rapidly, usually
resulting in death within three
to seven days.'
PAM is caused by amebas
common in almost all lakes,
ponds, rivers, creeks and other
bodies of fresh water. They also
can be present in poorly main-
tained swimming pools and hot
tubs.
This infection cannot be
spread from person to person or
contracted from a properly
maintained swimming pool.

JV Miners Force JV 'Cat Errors


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Four turnovers were costly
for the JV Wildcats in last
week's game.

"Some of that was due to a
new quarterback," said head
coach Rod Smith, after first-
string sophomore quarterback
Connor Davis was moved up to
the varsity level due to the


injury to Ezayi Youyoute.
"Our defensive tackles, Eric
Martin and Lenoir St. Louis,
played their hearts out. Every
drive was long and consistent
but then we would fumble or
get intercepted," said Smith,
hoping Hardee will have a bet-
ter outing tonight (Thursday)
when Braden River visits.
"They play a style similar to
us, a 4-4 or 4-5 but just not as

much option. We line up in a
similar fashion. They "se the
counter, trap power we do. Last
week, we did some uncharacter-
istically dumb things. Our
defensive backs were more
interested in moving up to the
line and got beaten deep twice,
not covering the wide receivers.
We had a good practice on
Monday and Tuesday and were
just not focused on Wednesday,
so I thought this would hap-
pen," said Smith. "I hoped the
guys learned from this."
Fort Meade scored first. After
two short runs, Miner Jalen
Brown snared a long pass to
move his team to the Wildcat 7.
Two more short runs were fol-


lowed by a Miner penalty mov-
ing them back to the 10-yard
line. Brown caught a TD pass.
Serapio Torres blocked the PAT
kick.
Hardee spent the next four
minutes driving downfield after
Trey Anderson got a 20-yard
kickoff return. Jake Mayer and
Anderson toted the ball on
handoffs from Donaldson. A
fumble on the Miner 4 turned
the ball over to Fort Meade. '
Fort Meade went ahead,
back on a penalty and then got a
25-yard pass play to get the
Miners going. As time moved
into the second period, St.
Louis recovered a Miner fum-
ble at the Fort Meade 18.
Five plays later, Hardee was
facing a third-and-four at the
Miner 10. Mayer went over


right tackle for a first down at
the 3. Anderson picked up a
tough yard. Donaldson pushed
through the line for the score.
The Torres kick was blocked. It
was a 6-6 game.
The teams swapped posses-
sion for the next few minutes
and Fort Meade punted. Hardee
started over on its 13, only to
have Devonte Clark intercept
the pass and return the ball for
another Miner score. St. Louis
sacked the quarterback before
he could get off the PAT play.
The Miners picked up anoth-
er tally before halftime. With 10
second lefts in the half, two
quick passes got Fort Meade in
the end zone. Clark ran in the
two-pointer. It was 20-6 at half-
time.
Fort Meade had first posses-


sion in the second half. Hardee
took over on downs at the
Miner 49. Anderson and Mayer
alternated carrying the football.
It took nine plays for
Donaldson and company 'to
combine talents for a score.
Anderson went the final eight
yards. A pass from Donaldson
to Anderson was good but he"
was stopped short of the goal
line on the PAT run. It was 20-
12.
The balance of the game was
an exchange of possessions .on
turnovers or punts. In the mid-
dle of the fourth quarter, Hardee
sustained an 11-play drive
before LaKevin Camp inter-
cepted a long pass at the Miner
4 and ran out the clock.
Staff writer Jim Kelly con-
tributed to this report.

He lived on a merry-go-round of
cocktails, and was a regular visitor
to the police station. Cried the
judge, "You're charged with
habitual drunkenness. Do you
have any excuse?"
"Habitual thirst," he replied.
In your heart and mine there's
that habitual thirst that only the
Lord Jesus can quench. It's, a
spiritual thirst, and material things
can't slake it. That's why our Lord
said, "Whosoever drinks of this
water shall thirst again." Nothing
but the "living water" can quench
your thirst, and only the Lord can
give this.
Thirsty? Disappointed? Un-
happy? Try Christ. He saves and
satisfies.

Letter To The Editor

Dogs Running Loose Are

A Danger To Little Kids


Dear Editor:
This information is for each
person who has dogs that live
on Sally Street.
Make sure your dogs are
caged in or tied up. We are hav-
ing a big problem with your
dogs while walking little chil-
dren to the bus stop. Each
morning it is dark for little ones.


So keep up with your dogs.
Your dogs can cause children
or a child to get hit by a car or
truck or any moving vehicle or
can get dog bit. So you all got to
do something very soon.
I am not going to put up with
your dogs this year.

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


2007-08 CROP BRINGS MORE QUESTIONS
As oranges enter the final phase of ripening before their har-
*vest, early estimates of a large impending crop have growers
scratching their heads. Two private estimates have been released
predicting sharp increases in the size of the coming crop. Yet, local
*growers do not believe the predictions credible based on the size of
'their crops.
Last year's crop total of 128.9 million boxes seems distant
when thinking the 2007-08 crop could be of record size. The two
predictions, one at 198 million boxes of oranges and the other at
180 million boxes of oranges, increase production over last year's
crop at a rate of 54 percent and 40 percent, respectively. If these
.predictions are correct, the coming crop will be the second largest
'per-acre production in history.
Some growers do report increases in their crops, yet not as
high an increase. With damage done by pest or disease, past storm
damage or economic abandonment, it seems impossible these
increases will materialize. Yet, the scientific computation of crop
size is often very accurate. Only time will tell what will be the
'accurate crop accounting.
a The U.S. Department of Agriculture's annual citrus crop esti-
I.mate will be announced Oct. 12 at 8:30 a.m. Peace River Valley
"Citrus Growers Association will host an estimate breakfast, which
,will be sponsored by Joe L. Davis Inc. Realtors. The breakfast will
be held at Joe L. Davis' barn beginning at 8 a.m. The breakfast is
.open to all commercial citrus growers.
Growers also continue to have questions regarding the health
.of their groves with the detection of greening in Hardee County.
:We continue to urge growers to educate themselves on the symp-
toms of greening, actively survey their groves for signs of the dis-
ease and to take the proper actions to prevent spread of greening.
Growers had the opportunity to learn more about greening at
*the Citrus Expo held in August. A full day of the seminars was ded-
.icated to greening and canker education, along with exhibits and
personalized training by experts in the field. Many new products
hnd new uses for old products were also on display by vendors hop-
ing to be a part of the cure.
- One useful University of Florida Institute of Food &
Agricultural Sciences tip provided is a quick test growers can per-
.form themselves to determine if symptoms displayed on trees are
"deficiencies rather than greening. This test will not confirm the
.presence of greening; rather it is a method to assist growers in
selecting leaves for submission. This will help growers select
leaves for testing to designated laboratories, and could ease their
minds if the particular sample is notpositive for greening.
If blotchy mottle leaves are present, make sure the branch sup-
porting the leaf is not damaged, broken or partially girdled. Sun-
.exposed leaves are best, and growers should avoid leaves showing
physical damage such as insect feeding. Each of these problems
could cause a build up of starch in the leaf and create a false reac-
lion.
Symptomatic leaves should be cut lengthwise through the
symptomatic area. Immerse the cut section in a solution made from
nine drops of water and one drop of two-percent tincture of iodine.
Products labeled "iodine solutions" often contain other ingredients
and will not react properly. Rinse the soaked section with clear
Water and inspect the cut surface for staining using a magnifying
glass or hand lens. The cut edge will stain if there is an abnormal
'starch accumulation.
The stained edge does not conclusively mean greening is pre-
:sent, as other diseases or damage could also cause the accumula-
-tion. However, the test will help growers properly select leaves for
.testing, avoiding submission of nutrient-deficient leaves. This is a
pre-screening tool only.
Growers with questions about this process can contact their
local IFAS representative. The written material on this process can
iars6 be obtained from the PRVCGA office.

Local Schools Enroll 136
Over Last Session: Wauchula's
schools opened Monday morn-
ing with nearly all grades show-
ing record enrollments and the
high and grammar school build-
ings crowded to capacity.
The primary department en-
rolled 447 on opening day,
while the elementary depart-
ment had an enrollment of 331
pupils. In the high school there
were 426 enrolled, compared

Tuesday night and reorganized
under the capable instruction of
Everett Allyn Moses, national
known band master.
Plans are under way for a
series of open-air concerts in

band will no doubt play a great
number of engagements during
the coming season. A fine
turnout greeted Mr. Moses at
the first rehearsal and no time
was lost in getting the band in
action.

Jensen, 2394 Vandolah Road, Wauchula, Florida 33873.

thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments must bepost-marked and
all facsimile comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 pm), on or before the end of this 30-day

Administrative Weekly and in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected by the permitting action.

comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the DRAFT Permit, the

administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The
petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (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 fourteen days of publication of the public notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the notice of
intent, 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 fourteen 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 applicable 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 will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with

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

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
notice of intent. 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 is not available for this proceeding.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person

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.
EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH
While Florida has been spared thus far in the hurricane season,
the recent Hurricane Felix serves as a reminder to be prepared.
September is National Preparedne"'. Tonth, a nationwide effort to
encourage Americans to take simple steps to prepare for emergen-
cies in their homes, businesses and schools.
One of the simplest things you can do to be better prepared is
to have a family emergency plan. To develop one, ask yourself
some important questions: "In the event of an emergency, do we
have everyone's contact numbers and an out-of-town contact?" "Is
there a designated place for everyone to meet outside of the home
and neighborhood?" "What is the emergency plan, including the
evacuation location, of my child's school?"
Only you can answer these questions and develop an emer-
gency plan that will suit your family's unique needs.
Additionally, you should post emergency numbers near tele-
phones and teach children how'and when to call 911, police and
fire. Keep family records in a water- and fire-proof container.
Become familiar with emergency plans at your workplace and
learn about emergency plans at your children's school and/or day
care center.
Get a kit of emergency supplies that will allow you and your
family to survive for at least three days in the event an emergency
happens. Assemble supplies in an easy-to-carry backpack, duffle
bag or plastic tote. The kit should include basic items like water,
one gallon per person per day; non-perishable food and a non-elec-
tric can opener; blankets; battery-powered radio, flashlights and
extra batteries; a First Aid kit; and prescription medications. Go to
www.ready.gov for a complete list of recommended supplies.
Plan in advance what you and your family will do in an emer-
gency. Your plan should include a communications plan, sheltering
and evacuation. If you need to evacuate, listen to a battery-powered
radio for the location of emergency shelters and follow the instruc-
tions of local officials.
The next time a disaster strikes, you may not have much time
to act. Prepare now.

So if we say we are partakers together and enjoy fel-
lowship with Him when we live and move and are walk-
ing about'in darkness, we are both speaking falsely and
do not live and practice the Truth (which the Gospel
presents). AMP
1 John 1:6
The Scripture goes on to say, "But if we really are living and
walking in the Light, as He is in the Light, we have unbroken fel-
lowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son,
cleanses (removes) us from all sin and guilt (keeps us cleansed
from sin in all its forms and manifestations)."
I understand from this that, if we have the Light of Jesus in us,
we will desire to fellowship with other Christians and with God
Himself. If we"have sin Ihd guilt within us, we will not want to
have unbrokenifellowshipiwith one another.
Remember, if we have confessed our sins and asked God to
forgive us He has done it, but a lot of times we can't forgive our-,
selves and we will carry guilt and shame. If He has forgiven us,
then who are we to not forgive ourselves and not believe we are
forgiven by God?
People may not forgive us, but God will deal with them, but
we need to remove all stumbling blocks in the path between us and
God so we can have true fellowship with Him and it will flow
through us to others.
A Golden Nugget would be to remove anything that will keep
us from walking in the Light and fellowship with God and one
another.
Be grateful for yourself...be
thankful.
--William Saroyan

COMING FULL CIRCLE
Among the top 10 stress-creating events in life are the death of
a spouse, moving, divorce, being involved in a car accident, and
starting a new job. On June 29 I started a new job while in the
process of going through a divorce. At the same time I moved
roughly 65 miles to a new residence. And in the middle of July, I
rear-endedia Lexus while driving a company vehicle.
As my new boss and I sat discussing these stressful events, it
occurred to me that I had experienced four of the top 10 heart-
attack-inducing, stress-producing, go straight to the cardiac ward
- do not pass go, do not collect $200 events in life.
"Maybe I've died and I just haven't fallen over yet," I suggest-
ed. Her laughter was sincere; mine bordered on hysteria.
It seemed as though I was due for some serious down time, and
in a dazzling, but rare, display of forethought, the new house I had
selected to move into was just down the road from the beach.
After an afternoon spent rediscovering the relative joys of sand
in sensitive places, sharp shells under my bare feet and the tenta-
tive sting of a new sunburn, I was starting to feel somewhat
relaxed. I was sitting at the edge of the water with a book, my feet
firmly buried in the sand, when I felt eyes on me.
There's no mistaking the feeling of being watched, so I
glanced around, trying to find the culprit. Not finding a likely sus-
pect, I went back to my book, simultaneously reaching into the
beach bag beside me for a bottle of water. It was then that the shad-
ow fell over me.
The gull landed not five feet away and stared at me with onie
beady little black eye.
"Shoo," I said.
He cocked his head-to the side, studying me, and a little shiv-
er ran up my spine.
"I said, shoo," I repeated. He took three commanding steps
toward me. I shook my book at,him. He flapped his wings and
advanced another step closer, and I, got a fleeting image of a scene
out of Alfred Hitchcock's "The Birds."
There was a time in my life when I knew that a seagull could
spot a half a bologna sandwich from three miles away, but after six
years of rural living I had forgotten such intimate details of coastal
life, so it never dawned on me that the gull was after food, or that
one of my daughters had secreted a little bag of cookies inside the
beach bag. All that was showing was one corner of the little bag,
but apparently that was enough for the gull.
"Who brought cookies?" I shrieked, and a couple that was
walking arm in arm up the beach stopped and gawked.
Without thinking, I grabbed the bag and flung the cookies at
the bird, hoping that if he got what he wanted he would leave. The
next thing I knew the sky was filled with winged bodies, as a ver-
itable swarm of seagulls descended on us in a formation reminis-
cent of the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Moments later, while we sat panting in the safety of the car and
witching the birds squawk and battle over the gingersnap crumbs,
it dawned on me that I had come full circle: I had left the coast a
married woman, and came back to it a single female. I had left a
job in construction to retire to peaceful rural living, and returned to
a busy sales job fraught with stress.
It dawned on me that my life was what I made of it, and if I
didn't take the bull by the horns, so to speak, and manage it, that it
could easily trample me and leave me broken and bleeding.
With my jaw set, I reached for the car-door handle.
"Where are you going?" my daughter asked, but I didn't
answer.
While the sun crept doWni in the westerri sky, I strode across
the beach to where the seagulls had congregated and waded
through them, stomping, kicking sand . reclaiming my rightful
place. The gulls scattered amidst a flurry of frantic screeching and
wing beats, and I retrieved my book, shook sand off my beach
towel and sat back down, burying miy feet in the sand.
"It's gonna be dark soon," one of my daughters remarked, ten-
tatively suggesting that it might be time to leave.
"I don't care," I said stubbornly.
With a shrug the girls returned to the water and I went back to
my book, squinting in the gathering gloom, not really seeing the
words on the page, but presenting a convincing spectacle.
Moving, divorce, new job, car accident.. the stressful cost of
living. Winning out over a flock of hungry seagulls was, in my
eyes ... priceless.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee girls volleyball
teams are making slow pro-
gress.
Welding a team of two
seniors, three juniors, three
sophs and three freshmen takes
time as early Hardee varsity
scores show.
This week doesn't get any
easier as Hardee continues to
tackle district opponents, Sara-
sota Booker on Tuesday at
home and Avon Park on its
court today (Thursday). Hardee
varsity girls will also play in a
Friday-Saturday tournament in
Bartow.
Next week continues with a
visit from Bartow on Monday
and another from district top
seed DeSoto on Thursday. The
month ends with trips to Pal-
metto on Sept. 25 and Braden
River on Sept. 27.
In matches last week, Hardee
showed smatterings of the
teamwork and consistency it
needs. "When we hustle, we are
unbeatable. But when we're not
in position we get beat. When
we play position and pass the
ball, we can play with anyone,"
commented coach Ken Leu-
pold.
At home against Braden
River on Tuesday, Hardee
showed those flashes in split-
ting the first two games, before
moving out of that competitive-
ness and giving up the last two
games.
Braden River benefited from
eight service points from
Lauren Powell in the first game,
winning 25-20. Senior Marissa
Hall had five service points for
Hardee and junior Krystin
Robertson added three.
Game two was a seesaw
early, tied at 1-1 and 3-3.
Hardee forged in front 6-3
behind the serving of soph
Chelsey Steedley, but Braden


River came back to knot the
game at 6-6.
Undaunted, Hardee's soph
Marisa Shivers led Hardee back
to a 9-6 advantage as freshman
setter Lacey Garza tipped the
ball over to a vacant spot in the
opponent's court. Braden River
came back again, with Lauren
Earl carrying her team to an 11-
10 advantage. A net serve by
Hardee added a point for
Braden River, but it returned
the favor on the next shot. It
was 12-11.
Behind Garza serving, long
returns brought Hardee even
and forging ahead at 14-12.
Back and forth the lead went,
tied at 15-15 and 20-20. Hardee
broke that with points 21 and
22. Braden River threatened
with a point off a Hardee net
serve and Hardee picked up a
point off a short return. It was
tied again at 23-23 and Hardee
forged in front 24-23.
Braden River took a time-out
and got the next point. It was
tied again at 24-24. With a good
save, Hardee.dropped the ball
back over the net for a 25-24
advantage. An ace by Robert-
son gave Hardee the necessary
point for the two-point win 26-
24. Robertson had served eight
of those points and Garza four.
Having expended that energy
in getting the win, Hardee went
out of its game plan and fell 25-
8 and 25-12 in the last two
games. Braden River won the
match 3-1.
Hardee was without the ser-
vices of junior Kember Town-
send, who was sidelined with
chest congestion."We missed
her 10 kills in the last game,"
said Leupold."We missed way
too many serves in the last two
games. We cannot miss that
many and win. We played pret-
ty well in the first two games.
Then we seemed to die," said a
disappointed Leupold.


Hardee woes continued on
Thursday at Sebring, always a
tough competitor, sporting a 3-0
record and playing at home.
Many of the Lady Streaks play
club ball -year round and it
shows.
Intimated at first, Hardee lost
the first two games 25-13 and
25-14. "We didn't pass well and
were not in position," said
Leupold.
Hardee came back in the third
game, led by senior server
Megan White with nine. points.
Hardee flew in front 22-16, but
the Sebring experience came to
the front, as the Lady Streaks
rebounded for a 28-26 game
and match win.
"Even our older players don't
have that experience. Marissa
Hall is the only one with more
than one full year experience,"
said Leupold. "We are picking
up more ball, seeing the hits
coming. We're getting there,"
he concluded.
Meanwhile, the junior Lady
'Cats, which include a half
dozen freshmen, are getting bet-
ter each outing."We just so
inexperienced. We are learning
a lot, our passes are better and
better," said coach Barbara
Leupold.
The girls lost to Braden River
35-18 and 25-11. Freshman Ali
Holle continues to lead the girls
with six service points in the
first game and three in the sec-
ond.
At Sebring, Hardee lost to the
more experienced club 25-18,
25-7.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

RISKING ALL
Here's a strange sight: parents vigorously alive and alert with
grownup children who seem half asleep. What happened? Didn't
the kids get the gospel message? Yes, they got it, but each one set-
tied for something else.
What was it? Each one settled for being a good little boy br,
girl! They didn't struggle and fight their way through to spiritual
reality. They just tried to be "good," to do the right thing, to "get
along."
They were dutiful and they learned one thing well: work. Like
the brother of the Prodigal Son, they were working in the fields
when they heard sounds of a party back at the house and they could
make no sense of it.
If a child doesn't struggle, it can die in the womb. We need to
pray that these grownup children will give up self-pity and hope-
lessness and the sleepy habits of self-indulgence and fight for their
spiritual lives.
Jesus said, "Ask and you shall receive. Seek, and you will find.
Knock and it shall be opened to you." He said the kingdom of h/av-
en would be gained by the diligent, the persevering, the passionate;
no half-hearted effort will do. .
It's useless to talk about fairness. Each of us has to accepttlie
circumstances we are in and make the most of them. God rewards
those who are determined to risk everything to know Him.
To them alone He gives the prize.

The highest apartment resid-
ence is the 92nd floor of the 100-
story John Hancock Center in
Chicago.
