City Of Wauchula Celebrates Centennial


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Saturday celebration will mark the
100th birthday of Wauchula.
Seventh Avenue will be closed from
Orange to Palmetto streets and Main
Street will be closed from U.S. 17 to
Eighth Avenue before, during and after


the celebration centered at Main Street
Heritage Park.
From 4 to 10 p.m. there will be activi-
ties for all family members to enjoy.
Children may go for the Kids Karnival,
wagon rides, police and emergency vehi-
cles, games, amusements and conces-
sions, while adults may enjoy the enter-


tainment, antique cars, 1907 memorabil-
ia and slide show and the food booth
sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce
and Main Street Wauchula Inc.
The entertainment begins at the pavil-
ion at 4 p.m. with the Country Cousins
Blue Grass Band. At 5 the Manatee
Cloggers take over, carrying to the 6
p.m. main event, the appearance of a
Teddy Roosevelt look-alike who will tell
what times were like during his term of
office when the first Wauchula City char-
ter was approved May 22, 1907 firmly
establishing the city which had its roots
nearly 50 years earlier.
During the Roosevelt presentation,
there will also be birthday cake served.
At 7 p.m., the Tip Toes Dance Studio


will perform. Beginning at 7:30, the
Final Cut band will offer music until the
event shuts down about 10 p.m.
The city was incorporated on Aug. 19,
1902, with early aldermen (commission-
ers) being A.G. Smith, W.A. Souther-
land, A.B. Townsend, F. B. Rainey, J. M.
Beeson and C. J. Carlton. The mayor was
Thomas G. Wilkison. George M.
Gooslby was the town clerk and Adin L.
Turner was the community's first town
marshal. L.S. Dishong was the first sher-
iff after the county was established in
1921.
A special Centennial tab appearing in
this edition tells much more of the early
history of Wauchula.


Staph Outbreak Strikes Sports Team
Bacteria Common, Harmless Until Injuries Present


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A mini-epidemic of a treat-
ment-resistant staph infection
among high school football
players focuses health concerns
on all Hardee County youth.
With six athletes affected,
high school coaches responded
promptly by bleaching lockers,
helmets, blocking and shoulder
pads, and by emphasizing per-
sonal hygiene.
Called MRSA (methicillin-
resistant Staphyloccus aureus),
it is actually a community-
based illness which particularly
affects infants and young chil-
dren, the frail elderly, and ath-
letes and others who have close
contact with one another.
An August article in the
Reader's Digest highlighted
MRSA and its effect on other-
wise healthy people."Com-
munity strains are genetically
different from hospital-based
staph and even more virulent,"
comments one infectious-dis-
ease specialist.
While the high school and
junior high coaches and athletic
directors have met with Hardee
County Health Department
medical director Dr. Stephen L.
Gordon, there is concern for the
200 or so Youth Football
League players and cheerlead-
ers, whose parents also need to

A girl who handed out pills to
another student and who was
found in possession of marijua-
na seeds has been expelled.
The 14-year-old eighth grad-
er from Hardee Junior High
School became the first expul-
sion for the 2007-08 academic
year.
According to George Kelly,
director of Pioneer Career Aca-
demy, the district's alternative
school in Zolfo Springs, the
Hardee County School Board
took the action following a
recent hearing on the Aug. 28
incident.
The girl, her parents and an
aunt were present for the expul-
sion hearing, he added.
In it, board members were
told that another student went to
the school nurse on that


Tuesday, saying she had taken
seven pills the 14-year-old had
given her. She was taken to the
hospital, and the 14-year-old
was taken to the office. A search
reportedly revealed no pills, but
five marijuana seeds in the girl's.
backpack.
Kelly said the girl admitted to
getting the pills from Wal-Mart,
and noted that she did not know
what they were, but that they
were red and "had two C's on
them."
Board members expelled the
girl for the remainder of the
school year.
She will be eligible for place-
ment at Pioneer Career Acad-
emy after undergoing a sub-
stance abuse evaluation and any
needed treatment. She will be
subject, however, to random
drug screenings at her parents'
expense.


be aware and closely follow all
recommendations for dealing
with this illness.
Most susceptible are those
with any cut, scrape or other
injury or the flu, making a way
for these bacteria to burrow past
the body's normal defenses.
"Any break in the skin's protec-
tive barrier, a scratch, even nose
picking(which may injure nasal
passages) can set the stage for a
staph infection," continues the
Reader's Digest article. Similar
information is available at
WebMD or MayoClinic.com. .
The bacteria produce toxins
that kill white blood cells, the
body's main infection fighters.
MRSA can be an aggressive,
rapidly progressing illness, in
some cases life-threatening,
continues the Digest article.
"We are aware of it, keeping
' on top of it and following the
best medical advice, but as I
drove by the old junior high and
saw so many little ones out
there practicing I became con-
cerned for them," commented
Schools Superintendent Dennis
Jones.
"The staph organism
(MRSA) is the most common
presented to our emergency
rooms today. It is common in
our environment. Outbreaks
should be treated early and
aggressively. It is transmitted

: by contact so it is most impor-
tant to constantly practice per-
sonal hygiene," said Gordon,
who also is the Health
Department's specialist in com-
municable diseases.
"You can sterilize the environ-
ment, locker room or whatever,
and one kid walks in with staph
in- his nose and brings it in.
Personal hygiene is most
important, clothes, socks, jer-
seys. It's not carried through the
air sneezing, for instance -
but by contact with one another,
such as sharing equipment,"
added Gordon.
Athletes are urged to increase
hand washing and stay clean by
showering as soon after practice
as possible. All towels and per-
sonal clothing should be wash-
ed after each use.
MRSA typically causes boils,
pimple or pus-filled swelling
often mistaken for,spider bites.
It can trigger large abscesses
that need to be drained and
spawn bloodstream infections




Shooting

Victim

Dies
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
'A Bowling Green man who
was shot in the forehead last
week while sitting on his front
porch has died.
Steven Rodriguez, 20, of
4092 Dixiana Dr., suffered a
single gunshot wound to the
head at about 8:18 p.m. on
Tuesday of last week. He died
the following day.
He had been on life support
at Lakeland Regional Medical
Center, Hardee County Sheriffs
Office spokesman Col. Arnold
Lanier said.
Lanier said this Tuesday that
the probe into the shooting con-
tinues. "It's still moving for-
ward," he described. "The evi-
dence is in the lab and we are
still interviewing and trying to
gather witnesses."
So far, investigators have
learned that sometime between
5 and 6:30 p.m. that Tuesday,
four men came to the Rodriguez
home, one saying Rodriguez
owed him money and threaten-
ing a fight.
The four men left, however,
as Rodriguez displayed a base-
ball bat, Lanier said.
But just before 8:19 p.m., the
time 911 was called, Rodriguez
was out on the front porch of
his home, talking on his cell
phone, when "a shot rang out,"

Search Is On For


New ZS Manager


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Faced with the burgeoning
demands of a municipality
seeking to grow, Zolfo Springs'
first town manager has left the
job.
Mike Schofield, who served
as the town's mayor before vot-
ers rejected that elected office
and its accompanying form of
government one year ago, told a
town official that he is not the
man to lead Zolfo Springs into
its next level of development.
"He said he thinks he's done
all he can do," Commissioner-
Mayor George Neel relayed to
the rest of the Town Commis-
sion members. "He wants us to
buy out his contract."
Schofield would have had 10
weeks left on the job. After
much discussion and dismay,
commissioners voted to pay out
the remaining $6,600 on his
contract.
"He did a good job," Com-
missioner .Didi White said of
Schofield's efforts when he
agreed to the switch from part-
time mayor to full-time manag-
er. "He straightened a lot of
things out."
But the town has new goals,
she added.
"He did a lot of good things
to get us out of the situation we
'were in," Neel agreed. "We
needed somebody to knock
heads, and he did it. I think we
write him a check. He did a
good job. I think we owe him
that much."
Commissioner Juan Otero,
.however, objected to the payoff.
"He's done what he could, and
maybe it's the best thing, but I
was raised that when you sign a
paper, you uphold it," he said.
On a 3-2 vote, with Otero and*
Commissioner Lois Dandridge


dissenting, the town opted to
pay the remaining time on
Schofield's contract.
On June 27, 2006, Zolfo
Springs voters ousted the town's
traditional strong-mayor form
of government. A town manag-
er was to be hired. And while
the town advertised for appli-
cants, Schofield, the self-
employed operator of a land-
scaping business, offered to fill
the gap for $1,000 a month.
But the town's advertisement
failed to attract any qualified
candidates. And an auditor
advised the town was .not yet
financially able to raise the
salary to a figure which would
draw experienced applicants.
Schofield then took over full-
time, for $31,000 a year.
After straightening out "a
mess" left by the previous
administration, commissioners
said, the town's goals could
now turn to the subject of
growth. The town wants an
experienced leader to help gen-
erate and manage that growth.
Saying the salary is "nego-
tiable," the town is currently
advertising for a town manager
who "must possess consensus-
building skills, experience in
grant procurement, growth
management, community in-
volvement, labor relations, fis-
cal management and budget
vision and excellent communi-
cation and interpersonal skills."
A bachelor's degree and five
years of experience, or an equal
combination of education and
experience, is required.
Meanwhile, as the search
continues, Finance Director
Linda Roberson, a veteran town
employee who has stepped in to
fill several vacancies in the
past, will serve as interim town
manager.

Staph infections generally
start as these small red bumps
resembling pimples, boils or
spider bites. Parents should
keep an eye on an unhealed sore
or even minor skin problems
among their children.
The best way to prevent the
spread of germs is to properly
disinfect surfaces and wash
hands frequently, preferably
with a hand sanitizer containing
alcohol. Hands should be
scrubbed for at least 15 sec-
onds. "The germs you leave
alive today are tomorrow's
drug-resistant bugs," says one
source.


All personal items, such as
towels, sheets, clothing and ath-
letic equipment should'not be
shared. MRSA spreads through
direct contact, and contaminated
objects.
All wounds should be kept
covered with sterile, dry ban-
dages and replaced as often as
necessary until they heal.
Keeping wounds covered will
help keep bacteria from spread-
ing.
. Bed linens, towels, gym and
athletic clothes should be
washed in hot water with added
bleach and dried in a hot dryer.
Any skin infection or injury
should be seen by a physician
as soon as possible, especially if

Dear Parents: ..,

Currently several members of the football teams have been diagnosed with a skin infection. At
least one case has been diagnosed as a Methicillin Resistant StaphAureus (MRSA). The staph
bacteria is a common cause of skin infections. Increasingly, in all communities, staph has
become resistant to some antibiotics and this is what we refer to as MRSA. MRSA is no more
dangerous than regular staph bacteria. However, because it is more resistant to antibiotics, it is
at times more difficult to treat.

All staph infections are primarily transmitted person-to-person through direct contact. It is for
this reason that we do see outbreaks of staph infections among athletic teams. MRSA does
cause some of these infections. The school board is already following recommendations for the
appropriate cleansing of equipment, pads, helmets, uniforms, etc. In addition, we can make the
following recommendations to reduce transmission of this infection:

1. Increase hand washing with an antibacterial soap.
2. Shower with an antibacterial soap after every practice and game.
3. Cover cuts and abrasions with a bandage until healed.
4. Personal clothing and towels should be washed after use.
5. Any wounds which do not heal or appear infected should be assessed by a healthcare
provider for proper medical treatment.
6. Student athletes with actively draining infectious lesions should be held from sports-related
contact until lesions are adequately treated.

Time, cleanliness and appropriate treatment of infected lesions will control staph outbreaks,
whether by MRSA or conventional staph. If you have any questions or concerns about skin
lesions your child may have, please contact your family doctor or the Hardee County Health
Department.

That bullet struck Rodriguez

No one else was injured in

Lanier said detectives have

This is the first murder in the

iHave you been diagnosed with a
Staphylococcus aureus or MRSA infection?
Below are answers to some common questions...


Staph is a type of bacteria. It may-cause skin infections that look like pimples or
boils. Skin infections caused by Staph may be red, swollen, painful, or have pus
or other drainage. Some Staph (known as Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus
aureus or MRSA) are resistant to certain antibiotics, making it harder to treat.
The information on this page applies to both Staph and MRSA.


Anyone can get a Staph infection. People are more likely to get a Staph infection
if they have:
Skin-to-skin contact with someone who has a Staph infection
Contact with items and surfaces that have Staph on them
Openings in their skin such as cuts or scrapes
Crowded living conditions
Poor hygiene


Most Staph skin infections are minor and may be easily treated. Staph also may
cause more serious infections, such as infections of the bloodstream, surgical sites,
or pneumonia. Sometimes, a Staph infection that starts as a skin infection may
worsen. It is important to contact your doctor if your infection does not get better.


Treatment for a Staph skin infection may include taking an antibiotic or having
a doctor drain the infection. If you are given an antibiotic, be sure to take all of
the doses, even if the infection is getting better, unless your doctor tells you to"'
stop taking it. Do not share antibiotics with other people or save them to use later.

by just under 10 percent.
The Town Commission has
adopted a near $5.6 million
budget for fiscal year 2007-08,
along with its accompanying
property tax of 9.00 mills. That
9-mill figure has remained
unchanged for a number of
years.
Property values in the town,
however, have not. So, with a
new taxable value of $28.2 mil-
lion as certified by Property
Appraiser Kathy Crawford, the
town's rolled-back rate was
8.2031. That number reflects
the tax rate for 2007-08 that
would have brought in the same
dollars as in 2006-07.
Hence, the tax increase of
9.71 percent.
That local tax money, or
$241,213, will pay but a small
fraction of the town's expected
operating expenses of
$5,551,965.
The Clerk's Office will col-
lect revenues of $486,667 and
expenses of $162,950, putting it
$323,717 in the black ink.
The Police Department, how-
ever, is expected to go deep into
the red, with $101,500 in rev-
enues but $329,636 in expens-
es. The deficit is estimated at
$228,136.
The gap is wide for the
Transportation Department as
well. It will have income of
$392,698 but costs of $483,743,
putting it $91,045 in the hole.
Also spending more than it
takes in is the Recreation
Department, with $5,000 com-
ing in and $9,536 going out, for
a $4,536 loss.
Breaking even. are the Water
& Wastewater Department at
$4,467,820 and the Sanitation
Department at $98,280.
Every child comes with the
message that God is not yet
discouraged of man.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
U.S. Congressman Vern Buc-
hanan stopped long enough to
bring good news.
The Wauchula City Commis-
sion was delighted to hear from
the Republican U.S. Represen-
tative, who said an earmark for
a $1 million federal appropria-
tion for the city's electric sub-
station refurbishing has been
approved by the House of Re-
presentatives. Buchanan said he
is working with Sen. Mel Mar-
tinez to get it also approved
there.
Buchanan said he is in favor
of earmark reform and full dis-
closure with its benefit for pub-
lic and non-profit groups.
"Whether it's the state's $71
billion budget or the federal $3
trillion, some of it is dollars
you've sent up there. It's a way
to get you the fair share you
should have. I can't make
things better for everyone, but
as long as there is consensus I
can do some."
Buchanan also said he is a
member of the House trans-
portation/infrastructure com-
mittee, the largest committee in
Washington with more mem-
bers of Congress than any other,
with $400 billion to allot. One
of the priority projects is the
four-laning of U.S. 17 in
DeSoto and Hardee counties.
The representative also is on


the Veterans Affairs committee.
There are 97,000 vets in the
five-county area Buchanan
serves. There is money set aside
for the first phase of a 300-acre
National Cemetery in Sarasota
which will serve the 387,000
veterans in that radius.
Buchanan is also a member
of the small business committee
which works with the Small
Business Administration help-
ing new businesses or old ones
which want to expand. There
are 137 small businesses in the
five-county area, with 95 per-
cent having 15 or fewer em-
ployees, Buchanan said.
Other projects he mentioned
are a controversial bill on chil-
dren's health programs, which
began in 1996 to help single
mothers and other low-income
families with medical care for
their children and a Farm Bill
which citrus owners in all five.
counties want. He was to speak
further about that at the Hardee
County Farm Bureau dinner
meeting later in the evening.

In other action, the
Commission:
approved a resolution for
an up-to-$2 million bridge
financing loan for the waste-
water plant expansion. The
work has to be done before the
city gets reimbursement from
state and federal funds for the
plant expansion. It is similar to


that used for the effluent pipe-
line, City Manager Rick diroux
.plained.
approved a resolution ap-
proving an inter-agency agree-
ment between the cities,
Sheriff's Department, state
Department of Juvenile Justice,
School Board and Clerk of
Courts to share information on
at-risk and delinquent children
which would otherwise be con-
fidential. This particularly ap-
plies to crimes of violence,
gangs or major criminal offens-


appointed Heather Lee to
take the District 6 seat recently
vacated by Mavis Best
(Brown), who married and
moved out of the community. A
14-year city resident, Lee has
been a dispatch supervisor with
the county 'Sheriff's Depart-
ment and currently works for
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive Inc. She has been on a
number of local volunteer com-
munity service organizations as
well.
approved a request from
Police Chief William Beattie to
use a portion of drug confiscat-
ed monies as a donation to the
Hardee Junior High School
football team for new uniforms
to replace the worn ones used
since 1990-91. "What better
way to use this money than for
youth?" said commissioners.


ladle of dressing could be from
two to six tablespoons. The
four- tablespoon size (one-quar-
ter cup) is probably most com-
mon. Four tablespoons equals
two standard servings, as listed
on a food label. That much reg-
ular (not reduced-fat) dressing
probably contains 100 to 280
calories and 20 to 28 grams of
fat. To get a better grasp on your
salad dressing portion, lift the
ladle out of the dressing and
take a look at its size when
empty. A ladle the size of a
ping-pong ball or a short shot
glass will give you two table-
spoons.
Q: Does snacking tend to
make weight control easier or
harder?
A: It can do both. When you
get hungry between meals and
don't snack, it can hurt in the
long run, because when you
finally get to eat, you may be so
hungry that you quickly eat
more than you need. On the
other hand, we sometimes for-
get how the calories in a series
of small snacks through the day
can add up.
We often select snacks that
we can get quickly, whether
from a vending machine or cab-
inet. This can make snack
choices likely to be high-calo-
rie, low-nutrient foods. Ideally,
snacks offer an opportunity to
eat more of the nutrients and/or
foods we might be lacking, such
as: fruit or raw vegetables if,
you have trouble meeting the 5
to 10 recommended daily serv-
ings; a handful of whole-grain
cereal or some whole grain
crackers if your meals more
often include refined grains; or'
yogurt or non-fat cappuccino if
you are low on calcium sources.
The more important decision is
not whether to snack, but if you
choose to snack you should
plan how you can select nutri-
tious snacks, control portions
and avoid snacking purely out
of boredom.


Q: How does being over-
weight increase risk of getting
cancer?
A: Researchers don't know
for sure how being overweight
raises our cancer risk, but stud-
ies clearly show that it does
raise risk of cancers of the
colon, esophagus, breast (post-
menopausal), uterus, kidney,
pancreas and gallbladder.
Body fat is not just extra
weight we carry around; it is
active tissue that influences
several metabolic processes
related to cancer development.
Excess body fat tends to pro-
mote insulin resistance, a con-
dition in which higher than nor-
mal levels of insulin are needed
to control blood sugar. High
levels of insulin and insulin-
related growth factors seem to
promote the development of at
least some cancers. Body fat
also produces substances called
cytokines, which can stimulate
a generalized inflammation
throughout the body. The
inflammatory condition can.
prompt normal cells to develop
into cancer cells.
The connection between
excess weight and esophageal
cancer may lie with gastroe-
sophageal reflux disease
(GERD). Excess weight is
linked to GERD, which dam-
ages cells lining the esophagus
and leaves them vulnerable to
carcinogens. After menopause,
body fat becomes a source of
estrogen production. Excess fat
can raise levels of estrogen,
promoting development of
estrogen-sensitive cancers of
the breast" and uterus. Other
links between weight and can-
cer risk are also under study.
Q: What fruits besides
oranges are high in vitamin C?
A: Some of the fruits most
concentrated in vitamin C per
serving (along with oranges)
include cantaloupe, grapefruit,
guava, honeydew melon, kiwi,
mangoes, papayas, raspberries,
starfruit (also called carambo-
la), strawberries and tangerines.
Each serving supplies at least
25 to 30 percent of recommend-
ed amounts of vitamin C for a
whole day. Lots of other fruits
supply smaller amounts, and

don't forget that many vegeta-
bles also provide vitamin C. It's
a good idea to eat at least one
fruit or vegetable each day that
is a good source of vitamin C.
.But reaching a healthy level of
vitamin C is usually not a prob-
lem if you eat a variety of the
seven to ten servings of fruits
and -vegetables recommended
for most adults.
Q: What's the difference
between "multi-grain" and
"whole grain"?
A: Multi-grain simply indi-
cates that a product is made
from more than one kind of
grain. For example, a multi-
grain bread or cereal could be
made from a combination of
wheat, oats and barley. The
term does not give any informa-
tion about whether the grains
included are whole or refined
grains. Whole grain means the
product includes the grain's
bran and germ, which contain
fiber, magnesium, vitamin B-6
and vitamin E. No matter how
many grains are used in the.
multi-grain, if the bran and
germ of the grain are removed
the amount of cancer preventive
nutrients and phytochemicals
decreases. Check the ingredient
list to see if the grains are listed
as whole grains. If not, enjoy
multi-grain products but be sure
to include several whole grain
foods each day.
Q: If I use one ladle of
dressing from the salad bar,
how much salad dressing is
that?
A: Ladle sizes vary, so one

Letter To The Editor

World War II Veterans

Helped Preserve Freedom


Dear Editor:
"Lest We Forget...
In writing this letter I feel a
sense of guilt, as I meant to
compose it much earlier. Since I
am known as a senior citizen, I
realize, as some of you may
also, how time has a way of
passing you by.
First let me say that I, along
with many other folks, grew up
and graduated in Hardee
County. Most of us, still fortu-
nate enough to be around, agree
that we lived in not only the
best, but the luckiest of times ...
the '50s.
Therefore, this letter is not
about us, but to pay tribute to
those whose contributions and
sacrifices allowed us to live in
this magnificent time; those
people Tom Brokaw called,
"The Greatest Generation." It
would be my fervent hope that
we haven't waited too long!
Recently shown on the PBS
television network was a docu-
mentary entitled "The War"
about America's involvement in
, World War II. After viewing it, I
would hope that it be required
for all American graduating stu-
dents!
Our history books are woe-
fully inadequate to give mean-
ing to the trials borne by the
people of the United States of
America! Maybe no words can
give true justice to this genera-
tion, but this documentary is as
close as we can wish for.

with each other as an encouragement to read.


"They were


wonderful".

We hear kind words
consistently. We're proud
that people feel comfortable
enough with us to openly tell
us how much they appreciate
what we did for them. In fact,
it's this appreciation that
drives us to offer the very
best in comfort, compassion
and service.

Jack shared some of his memo-

Kelly's Column
By Jim


There is a lot of celebration planned Saturday for the city of
Wauchula's 100th anniversary.
According to Jean Plowden, who wrote the book "History of
Hardee County" in 1929, the stage was set for the birth of
Wauchula in 1886 when the railroad was built through here.
In 1850 a family of Whittens lived about where Heard Bridge
Road crosses the Peace River. About a dozen families had settled
in what is now Hardee County at that time.
The early settlement here was called Fort Hartsuff, named
after Capt. George L. Harlsuff.
The area was known as Fort Hartsuff until about 1874, "when
Eli English settled about one mile south of the present townsite and
opened a store. The place then became known as English."
This was the only store of business south of Fort Meade. It
took a week roundtrip to haul goods from Tampa by ox team to the
store.
About seven families lived in "the immediate neighborhood.
They were W. Whitten, Eli English, Albert Carlton, W.P. McEwen,
Lewis Carlton, W.A. McEwen and D.M. Cason."
The whole population of Hardee County (Manatee at the time)
was 300 to 400, wrote Plowden.
The agricultural products in that era were sweet potatoes,
sugar cane and Indian corn, together with some orange trees plant-
ed by settlers prior to the 1856 Indian war. Early settlers were
Dempsey Whiddon, William McCollough and Capt. George S.
Payne. In 1849 Payne and Whiddon were killed by Indians near
where Payne Creek enters Peace River. both men had creeks named
after him.
The Wauchula Kiwanis Club later helped place a granite slab
and marker to denote the site, located at Payne Creek Historic Park.
English was later renamed as Wauchula, which is a
Miccosoukee Indian word meaning "cry of the sandhill crane."
Some people translated the name Watulahakee (Wauchula) as "bird
on the nest" or "buzzard roost."
Wauchula today has come a long way founded as "a railroad
village in the pine woods."
In 1888 Wauchula was part of DeSoto County and had five
general merchandise stores, one drug store, a post office, a shoe-
maker shop, hotel, physician, and railroad depot for freight, pas-
sengers and telegraph.
Missionary churches of Methodist and Baptist faiths had been
formed, meeting Sundays with about 100 in Sunday school.
There were about 120 students in public school, headed by
principal T.J. Sparkman and assistant Miss Mary Payne. A Masonic
Lodge was active.
Orange groves were the basis of wealth. Remember, this was
before the fence laws and most cattle were wild. With its plentiful
pine trees the area produced a lot of railway cross ties and pilings.
There was a corn grist mill operated by water power and busy
sawmill.
Scott Phosphate works got phosphate pebbles from Peace
River.
In March 1901 George Goolsby established the first newspa-
per, The Florida Advocate.
At the train depot on August 19, 1902, an election was
approved to be held at the Carlton and Carlton store for Sept. 29,
1902, on whether to incorporate a city. The committee consisted of
C.J. Carlton, A.L. Turner and George Goolsby.
The vote to incorporate was 27-0.
Officers for the new Town of Wauchula were Thomas
Wilkison, mayor; aldermen W.A. Southerland, A.B. Townsend,
.F.B. Rainey, J.M. Beeson and C.J. Carlton; A.L. Turner, marshal;
.and. George Goolsby,: clerk..,. i
i The new.government voted to spend $1.50 for a night stick for
the marshall.
The Wauchula school became a county high school in August
1903, with professor Joseph Wilson as principal. The teaching staff
was four.
The first bank came in 1904 Carlton and Carlton.
In 1905 Wauchula's population was 796 whites and four
blacks.
Wauchula's first fire department was organized in 1906.
A big fire struck the city in 1908, destroying several buildings
on Fifth Avenue between Main and Palmetto streets. Surviving was
the Peace River Hotel which was under construction.
In 1908 E.C. Stenstrom purchased the first automobile in
Wauchula from a Mr. Sheppard of Torrey community and would
overhaul it to look after the county lines of the Wauchula
Telephone Company. The car was a two-cylinder Cadillac, wrote
Plowden.
The first sidewalks were built in 1911. A rural mail route was
established in 1912.
Electric lights also came in 1912.
Big growth started in 1914 when voters by 90 to 15 authorized
the town to spend $22,000 for water, $15,000 for sewers and
$3,000 for paved streets.
The county was divided in 1921, and Hardee County was
formed, named for Florida Gov. Carey Hardee.

Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the virtues,
is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest and common-
est of the vices.
-George Bernard Shaw


The Wauchula Lions Club was founded in 1927.
According to Plowden's "History of Hardee County"
Wauchula should be celebrating its 105th birthday Saturday instead
of 100. But really, what do a few years' difference make'? Maybe
Plowden's dates are wrong.
Happy birthday, Wauchula!

Wauchula used to be known as the cucumber capital of the
world.
The late PDeeson's Drug Store was Florida's first Rexall store,

YEARBOOKS NEEDED TO FILL GAPS
Several weeks ago this column was devoted to the history of
high school yearbooks, or "annuals" as they often were called, and
a request for the community to assist with creating a collection of
these at the Cracker Trail Museum.
It didn't take long for a response to be forthcoming.
Through the generosity of Hardee Senior High School, a dona-
tion has been made to Cracker Trail Museum of 22 Wildcats


e V ,

COURTESY PHOTO
Hardee Senior High School has donated 22 historic year-
books to the museum.
Echoes. The yearbooks start with the years of 1955 through 1970,
with one of each. They then skip to the years of 1972, 1974, 1976,
1977, 1978 and finally to 1981, to make the entire collection of 22
books.
The Cracker Trail Museum is most appreciative for this gen-
erous donation, and especially to Rocky Kitchens, Mike Wilkin-
son, Diane Bryan and Selden Spencer. This addition to the muse-
um will be displayed prominently as part of the history of Hardee
County.
As someone walks through the museum, he passes by and
stops very frequently to view items that are displayed within the
glass cases. He may linger to look at the display of antique guns or
the very intriguing collection of fossils. He may linger to view sev-
eral cases which include various items that Dr. Wesley Pyatt used
in his practice in Bowling Green from 1908 until his retirement.
He may linger to view the vast number of pictures and booklets
also located within the confines of the display cases.
These items are carefully and lovingly cared for and displayed
for the enjoyment of Cracker Trail Museum's visitors. Occasion-
ally, a relative may come into the museum and request a copy of
one of those pictures. Very often, visitors will request a copy of a
historical document that was donated to us for research in which
they are involved. It has been our privilege to accommodate those
individuals and fulfill that request.
The Cracker Trail Museum, along with many other organiza-
tions and businesses, has a mission statement. It explains that we
are "keepers of culture" and that we appreciate the importance of
our heritage. It states that the museum will "provide a functional
and pleasurable environment," and by the use of displays we will
h'&able to assist our communai v. ith th.IunderInding and recol-
lections of its past. -'
* Because the Cracker Trail Museum is that keeper of your
past, we pride ourselves with caring for your sentimental and his-
torical items with great care. For that reason, some of our acquisi-
'tions are displayed in contained cases. That will be the situation


The yearbooks will be preserved for history.
with this newest acquisition of 22 Hardee County High School
yearbooks. They will be displayed for your pleasure, but also in a
way to preserve an entire collection of our past.
But, what about that person who may come into the museum
and would like to do research or look at a graduation picture of one
of his parents? We will be happy to accommodate that person then,
just as we are today.
The museum encourages research which may include perusing


old high school yearbooks. At the same time, it is our responsibili-
ty to preserve all of our acquisitions so that the entire community
will be able to enjoy them without the possibility of damage to
them.
The mission statement further states that the museum "will
aggressively accept and solicit donations." With the new building
addition just around the corner, that is what we are now attempting
to do. Won't you consider sharing with the community that which
you have enjoyed during your lifetime? During your parents' and
grandparents' lifetimes? Won't you consider donating some of your
old yearbooks to help fill in the years that we are now missing?
Hardee High School gave us a great jumpstart. Won't you
think about helping us to fill in the gaps? Contact the museum at
735-0119 or e-mail me at sandy.scott@hardeecounty.net or
sscottl647@hotmail.com for any questions you may have or dona-
tions you may have.






WEATHER SUMMARY
During the week of Oct. 1-7, a low pressure system swept
across the State bringing ample rains to several areas. Rainfall
ranged from less than a quarter of an inch to nearly six and a half
inches in Putnam Hall. Areas receiving over five inches of precip-
itation included Fort Lauderdale and Jacksonville with Miami
receiving six inches. Balm, Citra, Fort Pierce, and Homestead
recorded over four inches of rain while MacClenny and
Okahumpka recorded over three inches. Elsewhere, other areas
received over one to two inches of rainfall for the week.
Temperatures at the major stations averaged one to six degrees
above normal. Showers helped lower temperatures with daytime
highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s. Pleasant evening lows were
in the 60s and 70s.

FIELD CROPS
Despite rains aiding relief from the drought conditions, the
damage still remains for the most of the crops. Peanut yields vary
from grower to grower with some growers experiencing severe leaf
spot in Jackson County. Most growers need heavier rains to loosen
harden soils to help with digging peanuts in the Panhandle areas.
Peanuts in Washington County were in fair condition with yields
off approximately 200 to 500 pounds per acre with late peanuts in
very poor condition. Peanuts in Sumter County were in poor con-
dition. Peanut condition was rated 10 percent very poor, 20 percent
poor, 40 percent fair, 20 percent good, and 10 percentexcellent.
Nearly half of the cotton has been defoliated in Santa Rosa County
with only a small percentage harvested. Hay cutting was active in
central Peninsula areas with armyworms continuing to be a prob-
lem. Moisture supplies in the Panhandle and northern Peninsula
areas was mostly very short to adequate with a few spots of surplus
supplies. Mostly short to adequate supplies were reported across
the central and southern Peninsula localities with some pockets of
surplus supplies.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture condition was
poor to excellent. Pasture improved but damage from the long sum-
mer drought remains. Some locations were in a moisture short area
and stock ponds were still dry, as the rains have gone around them.
Hay harvesting was stalled due to consistent daily rains. Cattle con-
dition was fair to good. In central areas, pastureconditibn was poor
to excellent with recent rains improving pasture in most locations.
Pastures were green and filling in but armyworm damage contin-
ues. Hay that has been cut has been getting rained on before it can
be bailed. Cattle condition was mostly good. In the southwestern
areas, pasture was poor to excellent with most in good condition.
The summer drought has lowered pasture and forage conditions.
Cattle condition was looking bleak going into our normal dry sea
son. Statewide, cattle condition was mostly good.

What started out as an average week of rainfall turned out to
be one of the most beneficial weeks for the season. A tropical wave
from the Atlantic crossed the State over the weekend bringing
widespread, slow steady rains to the citrus producing region. All
monitored areas, except one in the central western region, received
at least two inches of rainfall for the week. Both Ft. Pierce on the
east coast and Balm on the west coast recorded over four inches of
rain for the week, followed by Apopka and Sebring at three inches
each. Average temperatures continued most of the week, with daily
highs reaching the high 80s to lower 90s in all areas. Trees were

and sign relocations as further defined by the drawings. The Work consists
of a single phase.

Bids will be received by Office of the City Clerk at the office of City Hall at the address list-
ed above until 2:30 PM, (Standard Time) Wednesday, October 31, 2007, and then at said

generally in good condition in well-cared-for groves, with fruit sets
being reported as good. Fruit sizes on oranges were between golf
ball and baseball size. Grapefruit were running slightly larger.
Grove owners were mowing middles, pulling vines, and cleaning
groves and getting ready for harvesting. Most owners were dealing
with greening on a needed basis. Fifteen packinghouses have
opened and began running fruit along with one processing plant.
Harvest began on Fallglo tangerines, Ambersweet and Navel
oranges, and grapefruit.
VEGETABLES
Scattered thunderstorms hampered field activities in central
and southern Peninsula areas. Several vegetable growers are expe-
riencing extreme white fly infestation in fields across the
Panhandle due to the dry weather. Vegetable growers have not been
able to control the severe infestations with pesticides because of the
very large populations. Okra harvesting remains active in Dade
County. Cabbage planting has begun although field work was
slowed due to heavy rains in Flagler County. Some sod growers in
Flagler County are converting back to cabbage fields since the
demand for sod has declined due to the drop in new home con-
struction. Only a small amount of cabbage has been planted with
plantings expected to continue through December in Flagler
County. Growers in St. Johns 'County continue to plant broccoli and
cabbage. Tomato harvesting was active around Quincy. Light har-
vesting of pickles and squash is expected to begin this week.

TRUTH OR CONSEQUENCES
I wasn't in the preaching mood. I was full-tilt busy finishing a
construction job. But I wasn't going to send a silent message of
agreement, either.
Tom, who was loading trash into his truck, started telling me
about this morning's meeting with his social worker.
"You're on disability?" I asked.
"Yeah, I've had three back surgeries."
"How's your back now?" I prodded.
"It feels fine after the last surgery," Tom replied.
He continued on about his meeting, saying, "I figured it was
OK to lie." He confessed how he had lied about his ability to lift,
his ability to walk and his ability to stand for any length of time.
"I think a person should tell the truth all the time," I stated.
With no initial response from Tom, we both kept working.
Almost as if talking to himself, Tom then said, "I'm not getting
rich doing this." He continued, "I've got a diploma, but I can't
read. Who would hire me? Who would hire me if I told them I've
had back surgery."
The Bible states: "There are seven things the Lord hates and
cannot tolerate ... a lying tongue ... a false witness who utters lies
. ." Two out of seven condemn lying.
Now I'm watching two of lying's ugly sides roar to life. First,
I see Tom lying to himself; he's convinced that he's disabled and
unable to achieve the achievable. Second, I begin to question the
truthfulness of things he's told me over the past months.
As if to make one last appeal, Tom put his hand on my shoul-
der, "You know, I've. done work for you a long time; I only charge
you $50 a load. Everyone else pays me $60."
I couldn't help thinking, "I don't know if I believe you."

Annual 'Estimate Breakfast'

For Citrus Growers Friday


The Peace River Valley
Citrus Growers Association will
hold its annual Crop Estimate
Breakfast tomorrow (Friday)
morning.
The breakfast will begin at 8
a.m. and will feature the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
2007-08 crop estimate an-
nouncement. Growers are invit-
ed to attend the free breakfast,
served at the Joe L. Davis Barn
on East Main Street in Wau-
chula.
The event will be sponsored
by Joe L. Davis Inc. Realtors.
The Green-Acres 4-H Club will
cater the breakfast. Working at
the breakfast is an educational
opportunity for the 4-H chil-
dren, allowing them to interact
with citrus growers as well as
providing them with funding
for furthering agricultural edu-
cation.
Growers will also participate
in a contest to guess the


USDA's number for the orange
crop. The prize, will be spon-
sored by Mary Gonter of Ray-
mond James & Associates.Inc. *
The announcement will be-
broadcast by WZZS 106.9 FM.
Growers who cannot attend can
tune in to hear the announce-
ment at 8:30 a.m.
This citrus crop estimate offi-
cially marks the beginning of
citrus season by estimating the
utilized crop.
The USDA's Florida Agri-
cultural Statistics Service sur-
veys the industry through the
summer, gathering crop infor-
mation on the number of pro-
ducing trees, the age of the
trees, tree health and pieces of
fruit per tree. Statisticians then
take the information provided
and compile it with past pro-
duction information and pre-
dicted weather patterns, arriv-
ing at the estimated crop size.
Recently released private


estimates have predicted an
increase in crop size ranging
from 40 to 54 percent. To the,
contrary, a recent Statistics
Service tree census of the top
seven citrus-producing counties
in Florida, which represent 56
percent of total production,
shows a 4.1 percent decrease in
citrus acreage and trees.
With the conflicting informa-
tion between the tree census
and private estimates, growers
are anxious to hear the USDA's
prediction. The announcement
will influence prices paid to the
grower.

For The Herald-Advocate
Fourth graders at Wauchula 1 2 f
Elementary School are revving
up their pencils and their imag-
inations to go on a writing race
around Florida.
Excitement was in the air
Sept. 21 as teachers, students
and parents gathered in Cats'
Caf6 to begin a six-month-long
contest to learn about writing "'"
strategies while "traveling" -
throughout this state.
The purpose of the race is to
hone writing skills through sci-
ence, history and map studies.
"Pit stops" will be made along
the way so that children can
learn about Florida's native
plants, Indian lore and legend,
and agriculture.
Each child created a "suit- Getting ready to
case" full of materials that will Genesis Torres,
be helpful in their travels. These Conner Crawford
include maps, journals, calen-
dars and "spare tires" loaded
with vivid color words.
"Clues" were all over the
"track" as the students prepared
for the race to start.
The highlight of the morning
was the arrival of Jake Carlton,
who delivered the first clue in
his fiery red drag-race car.
Fourth grader Jackson Starratt
said the car was "smoking hot" 4
and its black leather interior ,,-
was "out of sight!"
As they near the "finish line," -' -
all these young racers will be
winners on and off the writing
track.
"Race car driver" Shelby
Deese, who is also a WES
fourth grader, summed up the
morning in this manner: "It was Dalton Tubbs (left,
the best day of my life. Ever!" 1.

Wildcats Whip Streaks; Have Bye Week


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats over-
came three turnovers for a key
district win on Friday night.
Senior Jimmy Cimeus was
the scoring leading for the
Wildcats, crossing the goal line
three times in the first quarter
with runs of 41, 4 and 91 yards.
He finished with 229 offensive


yards for the night, including a
26-yard pass reception.
On the strength of the Cimeius
effort, coupled with nearly 100
yards by quarterback Jordan
Grimsley and a strong job by
the Wildcat defense, Hardee
squelched the Sebring Blue
Streaks 31-19.
The Streaks had more fortune
through the air, when senior


signal caller Steven Fortner
completed 6-of-18 for 188
yards, and all three of Sebring's
TDs. On the ground, pluses
were negated by lost yardage.
Stellar senior back T.J.
Williams had 48 yards forward
and 38 backward for a net 10
yards. In all, the Streaks had 56
yards but ended up with only 19
offensive yards.


This week, the Wildcats will
rest up and recover from a mul-
titude of minor injuries while
preparing for the HOMECOM-
ING game on Oct. 19 against


Braden River. The Florida High
School Athletic Association
dictates what weeks district
games will be held. Hardee's
final home game is Senior


Night on Nov. 2 when DeSoto
visits.
Against Sebring, Hardee was
dominant in the first period.

Upback Nolan Neuhouser took
the short kick to start Hardee at
its 24-yard line. Grimsley
recovered his own fumble, and
then tried to go around right
end. In two plays, the 'Cats
were facing a third-and-eight.
After a time-out, Grimsley
threw to Cimeus who went 26
yards to put Hardee in Sebring
territory at the 46. A couple of
short runs, coupled with a warn-
ing to the Streak bench and
Cimeus broke open for a 41-
yard TD. At the 9-minute mark,
Hardee had a 6-0 advantage
A fumble on Sebring's first
play from scrimmage gave the
ball back to the Wildcats. It
took three short runs for
Cimeus to get into the end zone.
A two-point conversion run
came up short. It was 12-0 at
the 6:45 mark.
A nice open-field tackle by
Postene Louisjeune held Se-
bring to a short kick-off return.
A pass interference call got the
Streaks going, but three plays
later, the Streaks were forced to
punt.
Hardee appeared to be in
trouble at its own 9-yard line,
but Cimeus busted through a
hole and went 91 yards to score.
The Jose Casteneda kick was
good. At the 3:26 mark of the
first period, Hardee had
silenced the Sebring crowd with
a 19-0 lead.
Sebring senior wideout Sam
Robinson had a long kick return
before 'cat Jayquan Gandy ran
him down from behind at the
Streak 40. A few short runs
moved Sebring along until the
Streaks fumbled. They recov-
ered the ball, but a Wade
Mahoney sack put them back-
ward 10 yards. The Robinson
punt went out of bounds on the
Hardee 20 as the first period
ended.
Hardee progress was halted
by a Robinson interception, but
again Sebring was three and

,out. Robinson's punt was
downed on the Wildcat 15.
Back and forth the teams went,
until Robinson took the reverse
and went 26 yards. Fortner got
an 11-yard pass to senior tight
end Kyle Long to cut the
Wildcat lead to 19-6. The PAT
kick went wide.
Devonte Carter downed the
short kickoff at the Hardee 30.
On the first play from scrim-
mage, Grimsley pulled away
from a pair of defenders and
went 70 yards to score. A two-
point try again came up short.
With a late hit penalty,
Castaneda's kickoff from the
Sebring 45 went into the end
zone. The rest of the second
period was a back-and-forth
battle, ending still 25-6 at half-
time.
Sebring and Hardee swapped
possessions to start the second
half. Sebring pulled outs its bag
of tricks for a backward pass to
Williams, followed by a "later-
al" which hit the ground and
was scooped up by Robinson
for a 65-yard score. The Robin-
son kick was good. Hardee's
lead was slashed to 25-13.
In the next few minutes, not
one but two, Cimeus' touch-
down runs were called back on
blocking fouls by teammates. A
Gandy fumble gave the ball to
Sebring, but on the ensuing
punt, Grimsley returned the ball
65 yards. While the PAT kick
was no good, Hardee was back
to a three-possession lead, 31-
13.
The Streaks would not quit,
and managed to put another
tally on the board in the fourth
quarter. While under tackle by
Mahoney, Fortner got a pass off
to Robinson, who tipped it up,
caught it and skipped into the
end zone. The 32-yard pass play
completed a 97-yard drive. The
score came too late. The final
tally was Hardee 31-Sebring
19.

HJHS Softball Wins 2


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The junior high Lady Wild-
cats picked up a pair of wins
last week.
Hardee defeated both Lake
Placid and DeSoto in back-to-
back home. games last Monday
and Thursday.
This week is a split. There
was a trip to Hill-Gustat on
Monday: despite the fact there
was no school, the Hardee girls
wanted to play. The game today
(Thursday) is at home against
Sebring, the only team to beat
Hardee so far this season.
Hardee hopes to avenge its 3-2
loss at Sebring in the season
opener.
Next week, there is a visit
from Avon Park on Monday.
The scheduled Thursday game
at Lake Placid has been
changed to Oct. 29, becoming
the season finale, following the
last home game against Hill-
Gustat on Oct. 22.
Against Lake Placid at home
last Monday, it was a relatively
easy win on the 10-run rule. A
ground-out and pair of Kayla
-Knight strikeouts put the junior
Lady Dragons down in the top
of the first inning.
Hardee picked up its first
score in the home half of the
first. Knight singled. With two
down, Taylor Bolin picked up
an RBI single before the third
out.
In the second inning a walk
and trio of Ks stopped Lake


Placid. Hardee got one runner
aboard but a double play halted
that effort.
In the third inning. Lake
Placid again got a batter on base
on a walk before three consecu-
tive strikeouts. Hardee picked
up four runs. Maria Anselmo
singled, Knight and Sabrina
Hernandez both doubled. With
two down, Bolin again singled
home a run, later scoring her-
self. It was 5-0.
In the fourth stanza, it was a
similar pattern, a walk and three
Ks for Lake Placid. Hardee left
the bases jammed with Amanda
McNabb, Kayla Powell and
Nicole Franks.
In the final inning, Knight
racked up the last of her 14
strikeouts. Hardee closed out
the game with five runs.
Cassidy Knight singled, Bolin
drew a walk and Courtney
Parks tripled. With one down,
McNabb singled and Jessica
Harrison walked. They also
came around to score, ending
the game on the 10-run rule.
On Thursday, Hardee hosted
DeSoto, a team with several
travel ball players. A couple-of
Hardee players also are on that
travel team which plays week-
end ball around the state. "It
was the best game in fundamen-
tals and great attitude. I don't
know when was the last time
we ever beat DeSoto. They are
usually undefeated."said coach
Sharri Knight.
DeSoto got the first run on a


triple and sacrifice grounder.
Hardee responded with a
nine-run barrage in the bottom
of the first. Kayla Knight sin-
gled, Hernandez walked and
Cassidy Knight also singled.
With one away, Parks drew a
walk. Savannah Selph\vas safe
on a dropped third strike.
McNabb singled, Ancelmo
worked for a walk and Powell
singled. With the bases loaded,
Kayla Knight smacked a shot to
deep right field and raced home
behind her teammates for a
grand slam. Hardee led 9-1.
A couple of strikeouts, a walk
and another K took care of
DeSoto in the top of the second
inning. In the bottom, Hardee
padded its lead with a pair of
tallies. Bolin opened with a
double, Parks walked and Selph
singled, bringing home her
teammates. It was 11-1.
A single and a walk left two
on base for DeSoto in the top of
the third inning. Hardee went
down in order.
The junior Lady Bulldogs
added a run in the top of the
fourth on a long single and sac-
rifice to make it 11-2.
Hardee answered with two
more runs. Bolin singled and
Parks was safe on an error,
which allowed Bolin to come
home. Parks moved around the
bases and scored on a McNabb
sacrifice.
When DeSoto left the bases
jammed in the top of the fifth,
Hardee claimed the victory.

A former Hardee athlete will
add pro boxing management to
his list of achievements.
Allen Ellison, a 1999 HIardee
High School graduate and pres-
ident of Ellison, Keesee, Gray
& Associates Inc. has taken on
25-year-old Wauchula pro
Edner Cherry.
Ellison is planning for more
exposure and support for
Cherry's bid to become the
lightweight champion of the
world. He is one fight away
from that and wants to train
full-time toward .that goal.
"With Allen as my agent, I'm
looking to go 100 percent into
boxing," said Cherry, who
works for the local Royal's fur-
niture store and trains morn-
ings, evenings and weekends.
"I want to be able to stay
focused and not have to divide
my attention. I need to be in the
gym 100 percent to go to the
next level," he added.'
Ellison is a senior political
science major at Florida
Southern College in Lakeland
who will graduate in December
and attend Stetson Law School.
He formed a corporate manage-
ment firm in 2004. Its partners
now include Courtney Keesee
and Santressa Gray.
"We expanded to athletic
management about two months
ago, deciding to take on Edner,
who will continue to train with
Peter Fernandez. I will work
with him and promoters to meet
his fight requirements and get
him a world title fight, hopeful-
ly in December," said the soft-
spoken Ellison.
He said Cherry needs to fight
either Joel Casamillo or Juan
Diaz, who are the top con-
tenders in the number one slot.
"They are vying for the 135-
pound title. Each claims it. If
Edner beats one of them, he will
be the World Boxing Council
top man."
To accomplish this, Ellison
hopes to gather a group of spon-
sors to provide for Cherry and
his family and allow him to
train full-time. "He has fought
everyone but the top one, and


we hope to get that negotiated
for December," said Ellison,
who can be reached by cell-
phone at 863-808-3615 or on
the web in two ways. At
HYPERLINK, mail to ellison-
associates@hotmail.com or
regular email at ellison-associ-
ates@hotmail.com.
In an open letter to "The
Hardee County Family," Elli-
son introduces himself as the
agent-manager for Edner
"Cherry Bomb" Cherry, "a pro-
fessional boxer with extraordi-
nary athletic ability and one of a
kind personality."
Ellison relates a recent inter-
view where "Edner was asked
how he would like to be
remembered. His response
shows what kind of person he
is. He said, 'I want to be known
as a Christian man, a person of
integrity, more so than as an
athlete.' That shows where he's
at."
Cherry and his wife Elizabeth
are the parents of a 6-year-old
daughter, a son, who will be
three in December, and a new
baby boy just four months old.
He said Monday that he wants a


better future for them and a
world championship will open
the doors for that.
He has a successful 22-5-2
record with 10 knockouts. He
has boxed in the main event on
national networks ESPN2,
Showtime and HBO. He hold
five title belts and is ranked
number eight by the WBC. ,
Cherry has worked himself
up in the ranks, beginning with
the Caribbean WBC light-
weight title in 2004. He also
holds the North American
Boxing Federation lightweight
title, plus the North American
Boxing Association, National
Boxing Association and US
National Boxing Council belts.
He is member of the World
Boxing Network and was
named the ESPN2 "Fighter of
the Year" in 2006.
In his quest to be "the world
champion from Hardee.
County," Cherry welcomes in-
dividual, municipal, non-profit
and corporation sponsorships to
be his professional supporters.
As noted above, contact
Ellison for more information or
a sponsorship.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

OLD NO. 13
Long ago in another country, a man had been in prison so
many years he had forgotten his name. They used only numbers in
this prison and, in time, he forgot his birth name. He was called
simply"Old No. Thirteen."
One day there was a revolution in this country and it was
announced that all the prisoners were pardoned. All doors were
unlocked and the inmates joyfully fled in all directions.
All but Old No. 13. He had been so long in prison that he was
afraid to leave. Actually, he felt comfortable and safe there so he
decided to stay.
Many years passed and the old prisoner's hair grew white to
his waist. His face was full of wrinkles and his back was bent over.
Then, one day, he looked out the open dcrr of the prison and
saw a figure in a white robe who looked familiar.
"Is that you, Lord?"
"Yes. I've come to take you home."
"Where we are going, you will have a new name."
"But Lord, I'm so old."
"It doesn't matter. Where we are going, you become young
again."
"But, Lord, I've wasted so many years."
"It is only too late if you refuse to come."
"Lord, I'm afraid to leave this place."
"I will be with you and you will never be afraid again."
The Lord. stretched out Hihand, and slowly the old prisoner
moved forward. Only once didhe look behind him. The old black
prison seemed to reach out hands to grasp him.
Finally he left the old prison behind and he and the Lord start-
ed on the journey home. He was finally free.
Is this a picture of your life? Have you become a prisoner of
your circumstances, your worries and fears? Do all your thoughts
revolve around yourself? And have you lived this way so long that
you actually feel "comfortable?"
Good news! The doors of your prison are unlocked. You can
leave any time you want and join the One who calls you.
And, best of all, you will have His company all the way home!

We wish to express our deepest
appreciation for all those who sent
messages, cards, food, flowers and
especially the prayers to our
family during this sad period of
Joe Himrod's death. Lovingly,

Wednesday Musicale Plans Gutierrez Wins Flu Shots Starting Monday


For The 2007-08 Club Year Pioneer Kun


An active year is being
planned for the Wauchula Wed-
nesday Musicale, a local orga-
nization which dates back to
1920 when it was organized and
became affiliated with the
Florida Federation of Music
Clubs and the National Federa-
tion of Music Clubs, which is
the largest philanthropic musi-
cal organization in the world.
The club will begin its 87th
year with its annual fall banquet
on Saturday, Oct. 27, which will
feature a four-piece "easy jazz"
band as its entertainment. Using
a Southern theme, members and
guests may serve themselves
from a Southern buffet and
have the opportunity to meet
the state president, Connie
Tuttle-Lill of Delray Beach.
The special evening will be
held in the fellowship hall of
Faith Presbyterian Church, be-
ginning with hors d'oeuvres at
6, with the buffet and concert
following. Members, prospec-
tive members and guests are
.encouraged to attend and ble a
part of the club's annual kick-
off.
The first meeting of the club
year will be Nov. 7 at the
Woman's Club building, 131 N.
Seventh Ave., with a musical
program which will include the
Hardee County Players.
Bill and Jeraldine Crews have
invited club members and their
guests to their country home for
the annual Christmas program,
planned for Dec. 12.


Spotlighting the Jan. 9 pro-
gram will be musical senior
adults, followed by the Feb. 13
Valentine program and Past
Presidents' Tea.
"Men in Music" will be the
theme for the March 12 meet-
ing, then the popular "Play Me
a Piano" program will be pre-
sented for the fourth year in a
row on April 9.
The club year will conclude
featuring the musical youth of
the community and some who
are seeking scholarships as they
prepare to graduate from high
school and continue their music
educations. Each year the club
.presents graduating seniors
with monies to aid these talent-
ed young students.
'The club meets the second
Wednesday of each month
(except November) at the
Woman's club building (except
December). The programs be-
gin at 4 p.m., with refreshments
and a time of fellowship begin-
ning at 3:30 p.m.

pating in any of the club's activ-
ities should call Bess Stallings.

at 735-0156 or Sylvia Collins at
773-6251 for more information.
Tickets for the banquet are $15
each (reservations necessary),
and the annual membership
dues are $25.
Participation in the programs
is voluntary, and an apprecia-
tion for music is all that is nec-
essary for membership.

Senior Gilberto Gutierrez
took top honors in Hardee's
first home cross country
meet last week.
He led the Wildcats to victory
over visiting Lake Placid and
Walker Academy, improving
the boys record to 16-3.
Junior Edith Leon led the
Hardee girls, finishing behind a
girl from Walker and another
from Lake Placid. The girls fin-
ished second as a team, staying
at the .500 mark, at 9-9. Five
girls ran their personal best for
the season, including Leon,
Briana Aguila, Nancy Conejo,
Laura Galvan and Hannah
Jacobs.
Behind Leon in the girls race
were Aguila in eighth place,
Alma Alvarez, 12, Galvan 13th,
Ana Saldivar, Mylekia Steven-
son, Guadaluep Flores, Jacobs
and Conejo.
Hardee boys actually went
one-two-three in their race. Pete
Solis was:,4',4 seconds behind
Gutierrez and Jean Frenot came
in at 20':7. Soph-' Murad
Ottallah picked up fifth-place
points and junior Luis Reyes
was seventh and classmate Juan
Rodriguez 18 seconds back for
eighth.
James Carrol was next in for
Hardee, with sixth-grader the
only boy to cut his time this
week, dropping from 25:48 to
24:23. Also coming in for
Hardee was eighth grader
Antonio Galvan.
The runners are slated to go
to Bradenton for a run on
Saturday and may host the

the Fort Green park. The annu-
al Alumni Run has been

Flu season has begun, and
can continue through February
or later.
Influenza, or '.'the flu," is a
contagious and potentially seri-
ous illness that can lead to hos-
pitalization and even death. Flu
vaccines, typically referred to
as "flu shots," are safe, effective
and cannot cause the flu.
Hardee County Health De-
partment officials recommend
flu shots for everyone, and
especially for individuals in the
following groups:
ages 50 and older;
residents of and staff of
long-term care facilities;
persons with chronic med-
ical conditions and their house-
hold contacts;
children 6 months to 5
years of age, their household
contacts and out-of-home
caregivers;
pregnant women or women
who will be pregnant during flu
season;
health-care personnel; and
household contacts and
out-of-home caregivers of chil-
dren less than 6 months of age.
You can get a flu shot at your
own doctor's office, area walk-
in clinics, at flu shot events
hosted by local businesses and
other public places or at the
Hardee County Health Depart-
ment, located at 115 K.D.
Revell Road in Wauchula.
Additional precautions to
avoid the flu are:
Wash your hands, often
with soap and water or an alco-
hol-based hand cleanser. Teach
your children to do the same.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are
sick, and keep sick children
home.
Avoid crowds, where peo-
ple are likely to be coughing
and sneezing.

October 11, 2007, The Herald-Advocate 11B


Outta The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


SEASONS OPEN
Football season's in full swing, and the 2007-08 hunting sea-
son is starting to crank up.
Archery season's been going in most of the state and, in this
issue, I want to talk about three oiner seasons about to start: cross-
bow, muzzleloading gun and the first phase of dove season.
Crossbow season occurs between archery and muzzleloading
gun season in the central and south hunting zones, lasting five
days: Oct. 22-26 and Oct. 8-12, respectively. In the northwest zone,
it comes in later, on the Monday after Thanksgiving, and lasts one
week through Dec. 3.
This season's for any hunter who'd like to use a crossbow or
continue using a bow on private lands. This is not just for disabled
hunters. Crossbow season doesn't apply to wildlife management
areas (WMAs), however.
The most common game to take during crossbow season will
be deer and wild hog. Only bucks may be taken, and one antler
must be at least five-inches long above the hairline. The daily bag
limit on antlered deer is two. Wild hogs considered livestock on
private lands may, with landowner permission, be hunted year-
round with no bag or size limits.
It's also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during
crossbow season. Only one may be takenper day, and there's a
two-bird fall-season limit. But you can't hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35
pounds, and hand-held releases on bows are permitted. For hunting
deer, hog and turkey, broadheads must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a half-hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident
game over bait on private lands.
Some things you can't do during crossbow season include
hunting deer, hog or turkey with dogs, using explosive or drug-
injecting arrows, and possessing firearms.
Immediately following the close of crossbow season in the
central and south hunting zones is the beginning of muzzleloading
gun season. Season dates run Oct. 27- Nov. 4 and Oct. 13-21,
respectively. Muzzleloading season comes in later in the northwest
zone, and runs Nov. 16-18.
During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are
legal methods of taking game on private lands, along with muzzle-
loaders. On WMAs, only muzzleloaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the same for muzzleloading gun sea-
son as crossbow season. And legal game, including bag limits and
prohibited methods for taking game, also are the same as crossbow
season. Bag limits and antler/size restrictions for game on WMAs
can differ, so check the specifics of the area before you hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleloaders firing single bullets must be
at least .40-caliber. Guns firing two or more balls must be 20-gauge,.
or larger. You may not use muzzleloaders with self-contained car-
tridge ammunition capabilities or possess modern firearms during
muzzleloading gun season.
The first phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season
began Oct. 6 and ends Oct. 29 statewide. Shooting hours during
this first phase are noon to sunset, and there's a 12-bird daily bag
. limit.
The only firearm you're allowed to hunt doves with is a shot-
gun, but you can't use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must


be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber com-
bined).
You may hunt doves over an agricultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted as part of regular agricultural practices.
However, it's against the law to scatter agricultural products over
an area for the purpose of baiting.
Some things you can't do while dove hunting are using rifles,
pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; or herding
or driving doves with a vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunting license, you'll need a $5 cross-
bow permit to hunt during crossbow season. A $5 muzzleloading
gun permit is needed to hunt during muzzleloader season,, and
you'll need a no-cost migratory bird permit if you're going to hunt
doves. If you hunt on a WMA, you must have a management area
permit that costs $26.50.
All are available at county tax collectors' offices or license
agents, or by calling toll-free 1-888-Hunt-Florida or clicking
MyFWC.com/license.
So if you're going after that monster buck during the crossbow
and muzzleloading gun seasons or dove hunting with friends and
family, I hope I've helped explain the rules and regulations on
some of Florida's hunting seasons.

Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are
in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the
Father is not in him.
I John 2:15
Worldly things are: lust of the flesh (craving for sensual grati-
fication), lust of the eyes (greedy longings of the mind), and pride
of life (assurance in one's own resources or in the stability of earth-
ly things).
Notice the statement about pride of life. We have the "assur-
ance" in doing things for ourselves, we don't need God! Also, if we
have confidence in the "stability" of earthly things, we don't need
God!
God wants us to humble ourselves and depend on Him for
everything.
The things of the world will pass away, but he who does the
will of God and carries out His purposes in his life abides forever.
I love verse 29 are we absolutely sure that Christ is right-
eous (conforming to the Father's will in purpose, thought and
action)? You can also be sure that everyone who does righteously
(conformed to the divine will) is born (begotten) of God. Begotten
of God is awesome!
Are we begotten of Him?
Chapter 5:18 goes on to tell us that Jesus watches over us and
protects us. His divine presence within us preserves us against evil,
and the wicked one does not get a grip on us.
A Golden Nugget would be to not hang onto the things of the
world, but lean on God for everything. Get rid of all false gods,
meaning anything and everything that would occupy your heart in
place of God such as a person, a thing, a job, a pleasure, riches,
drugs, alcohol or any addictions.


NATIONAL LET'S TALK MONTH
October is National Let's Talk Month. This national campaign
was started as a result of negative influences in our world today
that can lure young people down the wrong path. This emphasis on
communication between parents and children is all about making
good choices regarding risky behaviors.
Let's Talk Month is an opportunity for conversation between
parents and their pre-teen and teenaged children regarding how to
go about making good choices concerning risky behaviors. Our
children are bombarded by messages every day that can be mis-
leading and, ultimately, personally devastating.
The Hardee County Drug Prevention Coalition and Teen
Pregnancy Prevention Alliance are taking steps to help parents and
adults in start conversations with teens that might otherwise go
unsaid because it feels awkward to talk about such sensitive sub-
jects. During the month of October, every restaurant in Hardee
County will display table placemats with ideas for parents to help
teens make responsible decisions regarding their behavior.
"Life Is Full Of Choices Choose Wisely" is the motto of
these two coalitions.
The 27 area restaurants displaying these placemats will help
spread this important message throughout our county all this
month. In my column, I want to share with you the message that is
on each placemat.
It's a fine line between respecting your teen's privacy and
doing your job as a parent. How far should you go? As far as you
have to. Teenagers today have a minefield of risky behaviors to
navigate: drugs, drinking, tobacco, sex. Here are some ideas on the
placemats that should start conversation about these difficult top-
ics:
Let teens know where you stand on risk-taking and its con-
sequences.
Set clear rules with your teen for safety and guidance.
Keep close tabs on your teens. It's not saying you don't trust
your teen, it's saying you care.
Get on the Internet and familiarize yourself with the kind of
content your teens may be exposed to.
Above all else, set a good example when it comes to drug,
tobacco and alcohol use.
Respect them, be honest with them, be clear with them and
they will do the same.
Just using these ideas as a guideline will help you clarify your
expectations for your teens and let them know you care about them
and are willing to help guide them through these challenging years
ahead. Your teen will feel secure in this knowledge and, hopefully,
the bond between you and your child will be strengthened.
Ten thousand of these placemats were distributed to all 27
restaurants in Hardee County. The cost of all 10,000.of these place-
mats was underwritten by Mosaic. If you happen. to eat in one of
the area restaurants during the month of October, please notice
these placemats and use them as a way to begin conversations with-
in your family and see the positive results!
For more information regarding how to become involved in
the Hardee County Drug Prevention Coalition and Teen Pregnancy
Prevention Alliance, contact the Hardee County Extension Office
at 773-2328.
Start talking with your teen today! You will be glad you did.


Dear Friends,
If you have ever thought about
going to a chiropractor but
weren't sure it was right for you,
or thought you couldn't afford it
please read on.....My name is Dr.
Robert Helveston and I am going
to let you "check out" chiroprac-
tic with a fantastic offer. That's
right! For $20.00 I am going to
"give" you. $150.00 worth of
services.
In the 33 years since I opened
my doors, the last 22 here in
Wauchula, I've helped hundreds
of people in Hardee County feel
better and live healthier more
productive lives through chiro-
practic care. Now I'd like to
introduce even more Hardee
Countians to the many benefits
our profession has to offer.
For instance, chiropractic care
may be able to help you if you are
suffering from any of the follow-
ing conditions:
*Migraine headaches
*Lower back pain
*Numbness or soreness in your
arms or legs
*Constant fatigue; lack of ener-
gy
*Muscle spasms, sprains &
strains
*And a whole host of other
problems ranging from dizziness
to ringing in the ears.
These symptoms can be caused
whenever the vertebrae in your
spine are out of alignment,
because these "Misalign-ments"
directly affect your nervous sys-
tem.
Fortunately, if you are suffer-
ing from any of these problems,
or similar affliction right now,
they may be relieved or eliminat-
jed by proper chiropractic treat-
ment (commonly called adjust-
ment). So if you have always
wanted to "check out" chiroprac-
tic care and see what it t time to
do so because ...
for one week $20 will get you
all the services I normally charge
new patients $150 for!
What does this offer include?
Everything. Take a look at what
)ou will receive . .


*An in-depth consultation
about your health and well-
being ...
*A complete chiropractic
spinal examination ...
*A full set of specialized x-rays
to determine if a misalignment in
your spine is causing your pain or
symptoms . (Note: Nobody
gives these kinds of x-rays free.
They would normally cost you at
least $100)...
*An analysis of your' x-rays
and spinal exam results so we can
see what needs to be done to help'
relieve your problem ...
*Helpful literature that show
how your body works and why
you experience pain ...
*Answers to all your most
probing questions about chiro-
practic care and what it can do for
you.
Now, as a part of this one-time
offer, you can come in and find
out for certain if you need chiro-
practic care and how it might
help you eliminate the pain you
are feeling.
Before you come in, though,
you will probably want to know a
little about me. So let me tell
you ...
I brought professional chiro-
practic quality here to this area in
1985. Before that I practiced in
Oak Ridge, Tennessee, for 10
years. I have been examined and
licensed in the states of Florida,
Kentucky and Tennessee. ,After
graduation from Chiropractic col-
lege, I have done extensive Post
Graduate studies which has
allowed me to successfully deal
with problem cases, structural
rehabilitation, extremity prob-
lems, migraine headaches, etc. I
am a member of the Florida
Chiropractic Society.

DOES CHIROPRACTIC
REALLY WORK?
Absolutely! Here are some
findings from studies done by
chiropractors and orthopedic sur-
geons.
Harvard Medical School

"Chiropractic treatment of low

back pain which affects 75 mil-
lion Americans, is superior to the
standard regimen administered
by medical doctors, a major
British study has concluded.
Chiropractic almost certainly
confers worthwhile long-term
benefit in comparison with hospi-
tal outpatient management," said
Dr. T.W. Meade, a British med-
ical doctor who headed the study
conducted at 11 hospitals and chi-
ropractic clinics."
Federal Medical Study
Endorses Chiropractic For
Back Pain US Agency for
Healthcare Policy and Research.
December 8, 1994 A panel of
23 doctors headed by Dr.
Stanley Bigos, M.D., Professor of
Orthopedic Surgery, studied
3,900 medical articles on low
back pain. Their conclusions
were that "Chiropractor's manip-
ulation of the spine was more
helpful than any of the following:
traction, massage, biofeedback
acupuncture, injection of steroids
into the spine, back corsets, and
ultrasound. Surgery was benefi-
cial only in 1 out of 100 cases!

MIGRAINE HEADACHES
GONE!
*In Australia, the federal gov-
ernment commissioned a study to
determine if chiropractic care
was effective in treating migraine
headaches. 85 patients who suf-


fered from migraines for an aver-
age of 19 years were divided into
three groups. One group received
chiropractic treatment, the other
two groups received traditional
medical therapy. All three groups
reported some relief, but the chi-
ropractic group reported superi-
ority on all levels studied!
Would you like even more
proof that chiropractic works?
Then listen to these comments
from my patients ...

PATIENT SUCCESS
STORIES
"This letter is a "Thank You"
to Dr. Robert Helveston. My
grandson began as his patient at
the age of 20 months. "Josiah"
was still not walking and did not
appear to have any desire to
stand or use his legs and feet. He
could not stand, even with some-
one holding him to assist his
effort. I told his father that we
were going to have to do some-
thing or Josiah was going to go
from a stroller to a wheelchair. I
became extremely worried and
decided to take him to see my chi-
ropractor, Dr. Robert Helveston.
After only one month, Josiah was
standing and pulling himself up
using the aide of a chair, table,
etc. His parents had to leave state
on an emergency and I decided
that through the grace and mercy
of God and the help of. Dr.
Helveston, I was going to have
Josiah walking by the time his
parents returned home. I faithful-
ly took him to Dr. Helveston twice
a week in the beginning to receive
the best benefit possible. Josiah is
now two (2) years and one (1)
month and is walking wonderful-
ly. He still stumbles and falls
occasionally, however, I am con-
vinced that without the assistance
of Dr. Helveston, Josiah would
not be walking today. I am such a
believer in Dr. Helveston that I
continually take all of my grand-
children to see him on a monthly
basis. Our daughter, my hus-
band, and myself are also his
patients. I, personally, do not
remember the last time I went to a


medical doctor. I do remember to
see my chiropractor once a
month."
-Mary Pemberton

Dear Dr. Helveston,
I want to take this opportunity
to say "Thank You". When I hurt
my back following Hurricane
Charley, leaving me in severe
pain and limited mobility I
thought I would have to see a
back specialist and might, even
face surgery. Then someone sug-
gested that I see a Chiropractor.
This was an idea that I wasn't
comfortable with because I have.
always been skeptical... of
Chiropractors. Not being able to
handle the pain I decided to give
you a chance and I am glad that I/
did. After following your 90 day
treatment and rehabilitation pro-
gram I am as good as I used to be
with complete mobility and pain
free. I praise the Lord that he
worked through you to bring
about healing to my back. I hope
this letter will encourage others.
who are just as skeptical as I used
to be to at least consider the pos--
sibility of a Chiropractor. Who
knows, it might just work.
-Sincerely,
Rev. Jim Davis

October, 2006 of an '8 year. old

in his behavior, and in academic
performance in a two month

Almost past the halfway
mark, Hardee Youth Football
moves along with varying
results.
Last weekend featured both
Hardee Flag and Mitey Mite
teams contesting each other. A
montage of photos from last
weekend's action is on Page
10C of this issue.
With a pair of byes during the
season, Hardee Flag Blue has a
2-1 record, after blanking
Hardee Orange 31-0 on Satur-
day. Hardee Orange is at 2-2
with only one bye so far this
season.
In the Mitey Mite division,
Hardee Orange defeated Hardee
Blue on Saturday 27-7. Orange
has one win, three defeats and a
tie on its record, while blue has
three defeats.
Next up are the Junior

Meade 27-20 on Saturday to
improve its record to 3-2.
In the Peewee division, Har-


dee lost to Fort Meade 26-6
and now has a 3-2 record.
In the oldest group, the
Midgets, Hardee lost to Fort
Meade 23-13. The Midgets
have had one rain-out, one bye
and have a record of 1-2.

There's a whole lot of news this time, but perhaps most impor-
tant is the staph infection which has affected some of the high
school football players. The high school and junior high staff's are
working with Hardee Health Department physician Dr. Steven
Gordon and using sterilization, increased hand washing and other
personal hygiene and other preventive methods.
There's also an active group of Youth Football League players
and cheerleaders. Parents should not panic, but be aware of the sit-
uation and read the Page 1 article on it and follow its recommen-
dations. With proper care, there should be no more illness than is
normal.

Wildcat football is doing well. All three teams won last week.
The varsity 'Cats invaded Sebring stadium and snatched a 31-19
victory in a district contest Hardee needed to win. The 'Cats are 5-
1 overall and 1-1 in district play. They have a by this week and will
recuperate from bumps and bruises and prepare for the
Homecoming game on Oct. 19 against Braden River, another dis-
trict foe.
The JV Wildcats also beat Sebring last week, playing at home
in a first-half downpour. After a 0-0 first quarter, the teams battled
it out, with Hardee claiming the 18-7 win.
Hardee Junior High also won at home last week over DeSoto,
although details were unavailable at press time.

Wildcat golf is winding down the season. The boys team was

11-2 at the end of last week. District competition is on Monday,
with the boys playing at 9 a.m. and the girls at 1 p.m. Both teams
play districts at The Bluffs at Gardner, the home course for the
DeSoto Bulldogs.
For girls golf, the freshman trio of Kara Norris, Emily
Williams and Lauren Moore are playing some good golf.

In cross country, senior Gilberto Gutierrez and junior Edith
Leon continue to be the team leaders, Gutierrez won the Pioneer
Run last week.
We again remind runners of all ages that the annual Alumni
Run has been changed to Oct. 18 to coincide with Homecoming
weekend. For adults who want to compete'in it, contact coach'Don
Trew at the high school, 773-3131. The race is at 5:30 so runners
can compete after work.

Lady Wildcat volleyball is also finishing up and about to enter
district competition, which begins Oct. 22 at Sebring High School.
The times of the first games haven't been announced yet.
The girls will host a fund-raiser Enchilada Dinner before the
Senior Night game on Nov. 2. From 4:30 to 7 p.m., the dinners will
be available at the high school cafeteria. The dinners, for $6,
include enchilada, pinto beans, rice and salad. See any player or
coach Ken Leupold for tickets.

Hardee swimmers are also preparing for district competition,
tuning up in the Heartland meet last weekend against a half dozen
other schools. North Port won the boys division, with Sebring with
Sebring edging Lake Placid for the girls division.

Junior high softball pocketed a pair of wins last week, includ-
ing one over arch-rival DeSoto, which has been unbeaten in recent
years. A reminder here too. The Oct. 18 game at Lake Placid has
been changed to Oct. 29.

There's boxing news on the horizon as well. Local lightweight
Edner "Cherry Bomb" Cherry is under new management, with
Ellison, Keese, Gray & Associates Inc., led by its president Allen
Ellison, 1999 Wildcat grad. He encourages any individual or group
that wants to help sponsor Cherry and allow him to give 100 per-
cent effort to a fight for the world lightweight title to contact him.
He can be reached at cell phone 863-808-3615. (See related article
for more information).
Also in boxing news is the start of the new Hardee County
Youth Center gym on U.S. 17 North, with former local boxer Juan
Gonzalez. As a teenager, he boxed under Troy Carter along with
Cherry, who will drop by the new gym and encourage young box-
ers. One of the newest boxers is 17-year-old Victor Gonzalez, who.
at 132 pounds is preparing for a bout in Palm Bay and another in
Sanford. For more information, call Juan Gonzalez at cell phone
863-328-0337.

Hardee Youth Sports is holding registration for Tee-Ball
through Minors all next week. Monday through Thursday it is from
5 to 7 p.m., Friday it is 4 to 6 p.m. because of the Homecoming
Game, and next Saturday is 9 a.m. to noon. Registration is at the
George Heine Jr. Complex off South Florida Avenue behind Farr
Field.
Girls, there's a new division just for you. Machine-pitch girls

Every student on campus at Hardee Senior High School recently received a personal
copy of the book "Everyday Heroes" following a fund raiser by Lionette Sweethearts.
The young men raised $6,312.38 toward the goal. A matching county grant of $5,000
brought the total figure to over $11,000. Combined, the schoolwide teen literacy pro-
ject was an overwhelming success. Part of the money earned has already purchased
copies of the book for everyone, and the book is being used during the fourth-period
literacy block in all classrooms. The rest of the money will go toward the purchase of
updated subject-specific classroom libraries. Holding copies of the book are (from
left) Cody Gullatt, Josh Heggie, Michael Torres, James Olliff, Craig Daw, D.R. Harris,
Kyle Cobb and Drew Macias.

Lady 'Cats Bomb Booker


This week in history, as re-
searched from the archival
pages of The Florida Advocate,
the Hardee County Herald and
The Herald-Advocate of...
75 YEARS AGO
Palmetto Team Plays Local
Eleven Tonight: What promises
to be the feature football game
of the 1932 season is booked
for tonight on the local athletic
field when the strong eleven
from Palmetto High School
come to play the fighting
Wauchula Wildcats.
The game is set for 8 p.m.
and it promises to be a hot bat-
tle, with the teams about evenly
matched. Tonight's game will
be the high spot on the football
calendar and a record crowd is
expected to attend.
Lion's Club Planning Hallo-
ween Fete Here: The Wauchula
Lion's Club is planning to hold
its annual Halloween party for
the children of Wauchula and
surrounding territory on Oct.
31.
The party will take place on
the grammar school grounds
and the date for it was definite-
ly fixed at the meeting Wed-
nesday noon at the Peace River
Hotel. This is certainly good
news for the hundreds of chil-
dren who look forward to the
annual event.
Orchestra Leader To Locate
In This City: Professor Phil
Munafo, one of the well-known
New York musicians, has
arrived in Wauchula and plans
to make his future home here.
Professor Munafo has been
musical director of several of
the lead theatres and radio sta-
tions in the north and has been
with Paul Whiteman's orches-
tra, the Vincent Lopez orchestra
and several other musical orga-
nizations in the east.

50 YEARS AGO
Cats Finally Win A Game:
Beat Jesuit: The Hardee High
Wildcats came from behind last
Friday night to edge out Jesuit
High of Tampa by a 19 to 14
score. Charles Yawn, substitute
,quarterback, pulled the game
out of the fire with less than a
minute to spare.
Yawn picked up a fumble in
the Jesuit backfield and scanm-
pered 60 yards for the winning


~ -1.

touchdown. He was backed up
by three teammates, and one
threw a crushing block at the
only Jesuit that had a chance to
stop him.
Trouble Arises Over New
Road: Complications have
arisen over the designation of
the Zolfo Crewsville Road as a
primary road and the State
Road Board now says Hardee
County must put up half the
money to hard surface it.
Hardee Commissioners are
doubtful whether they can raise
the money for that purpose. The
road must be paved to a 24-foot
width to the Highlands County
line. It is already paved to a nar-
rower width east of Charlie
Creek.
Whooping Cranes To Fly
Again: The last wild flock of
whooping cranes will soon be
on the move again. Their fall
migration from Canada to Texas
will be eagerly watched all
along the migratory highway.
Aerial surveys conducted by
the Canadian Wildlife Service
in the vicinity of Wood Buffalo
Park, Northwest Territories,
have observed three young
cranes were successfully
hatched this summer.
25 YEARS AGO
Northside Baptist Released
Balloons Saturday: Members of
the Northside Baptist Church in
Wauchula sent dozens of heli-
um-filled balloons skyward this
past Saturday afternoon to cele-
brate the beginning of a week of
revival.
The balloons have tags
attached to them. The revival
will end this coming Saturday
and those who found the bal-
loons are asked to return them
to the church that evening. The
person returning a balloon from
the farthest distance will re-
ceive a prize.

Sixth Graders Learn About
Drug And Alcohol Awareness:
Drug and alcohol awareness
was the topic of a presentation
given by Dr. Art Pollock to
Wauchula Elementary sixth
graders on Friday of last week.
The purpose of the program
was to educate the children
about drugs and alcohol without
the use of scare tactics or half-
truths. This session was just one


in a series of monthly talks that
focus on the realities of drug
and alcohol abuse.
Barbara Gillis Received Blue
Best Of Show Ribbons: Barbara
Gillis recently entered the Mid-
Florida Ceramic Show held in
the Citrus Show Case at Winter
Haven. Her entry received a
first place Blue Ribbon and a
Best of Category ribbon.
The prize winning work is a
ceramic lamp. The shade is dec-
orated with three free-hand
paintings of Wauchula land-
marks. (The J.W. Earnest and
Albert Carlton houses, and the
old Herald-Advocate building.)
10 YEARS AGO
Heartland Marching Band
Festival Sunday: Do you like
marching band half-time
shows? Do you love the sight
and sound of music in motion
on a football field?
If you are a former band
member or just a fan of high
school marching bands, then
you need to be at "Wildcat
Stadium" on Saturday as the
Hardee Senior High School
"Blue Star Brigade" hosts the
13th Annual Heartland March-
ing Band Festival beginning at
1 p.m.
Zolfo Church Of God Claims
New Pastor: Pastor Jim Cain
assumed duties as pastor of
Zolfo Springs Church of God
on Sunday, Sept. 7, coming
from Oceans of Love Church of
God at Jacksonville Beach.
During over 40 years in the
ministry, he has built seven
new churches, five educational
buildings and four parsonages.
He served two terms as state
director of evangelism and
church development and also
served on his denomination's
college board.
'Cats Oust Avon Park; Stand
Up To Streaks Friday: Avon
Park may have kept the football
the longest, but Hardee scored
the most. The Wildcats chal-
lenged the state-ranked and
undefeated Avon Park Red
Devils on their own turf.
They came away with a 24-7
victory. Avon Park scored first,
capping a fumble recovery and
13-play drive with the only Red
Devil score of the game. The
Wildcat defense managed' to
halt them every time afterward.

I Way Back When I


"All of the team played
well," concluded Leupold as he
recounted the rest of the night.
The junior.varsity Lady Wild-
cats played a tournament at
Bartow on Oct. 6 and were also
at Sebring, but their match at
Booker had been cancelled.
At Bartow, they played three
tough matches, losing to
McKeel Academy, the eventual
tournament winner, 25-9 and
25-20. Then, they played
Winter Haven in a 28-26, 25-20
loss and All Saints' Academy in
a 25-21, 25-13 loss.
"They had only one bad


game. The rest of the games,
they were right in there. They
got a lot of good experience.
They came back on McKeel in
the second game. Against
Winter Haven they lost a couple
of points on scoring and offici-
ating as it was also a training
session for both. I was overall
pleased with what and how they
did," said Leupold.
The girls were out of sync at
Sebring last Tuesday, perhaps
the aftereffect of the weekend
tourney. They lost 25-2, 25-10.
"They didn't play well. They
never got out of the starting
gate," commented Leupold.

It took just 43 minutes.
The Lady Wildcats went to
Sarasota last Thursday and took
longer traveling than they did
playing. The girls defeated the
Lady Tornadoes 25-4, 25-12
and 25-10, taking control early
and often.
Hardee finishes up the regu-
lar season this week. They were
at home Tuesday for Senior
Night games against Avon
Park. Today (Thursday), it's a
return matchup against Bartow,
this time on its court. The week-
end tournament in Bradenton is
varsity only.
Then, it's a week for healing
and practice in preparation for
the district tournament at
Sebring which begins on
Monday, Oct. 22. Hardee will
probably face third-seed Braden
River. Top-seed DeSoto draws a
bye in the first round, with sec-
ond-seed Sebring taking on sev-
enth-seed Booker. Times have
not yet been announced.
Hardee will host an enchilada
dinner on Nov. 2 from 4:30 to 7
p.m.at the Hardee Senior High,
cafeteria. The dinner of enchila-
da, pinto beans, rice and salad is
$6. For tickets, see any volley-
ball player of coach Ken
Leupold.
Hardee opened last week
with a visit from Sebring. Al-
though losing 25-22, 25-16, 25-
10, Hardee was in every game.
"Even in the 25-10 game, we
weren't out of it until they got a
serving run. They played
extremely well in all three
games," reported Leupold.
Freshman hitter Eryn Mahoney
was lost for several games due
to a bad ankle sprain.
Hardee did even better
against Booker than they did in
the Wildcat Gym where Booker
won one game. At Booker, even
without libero Amber Steedley,
who was nursing a sore knee,
Hardee ruled. Senior Megan
White served the first 16 points
of Game 1, had three more solid
servers in Game 2 and nine in
Game 3. "Her serve was on,"
succinctly said Leupold. White
was one of only four servers in
the first game, which Hardee
won 25-4.

As the season winds down,
Hardee boys golf is sitting pret-'
ty.
The Wildcats picked up a pair
of wins last week to move up to
11-2, their only losses to Avon
Park and Sebring, each by four
strokes.
They were at the Heartland
Tournament on Saturday. This
week, the 'Cats played Monday
at Lake Wales and at DeSoto on
Tuesday. The match set for
today (Thursday) against Frost-
proof has been cancelled.
District competition is next
Monday, Oct. 15 at 9 a.m. at the
Bluffs, the DeSoto home
course. Hardee hopes to do well
against stiff competition from
the 10 other schools in 1A-
District 16.
Coach George Heine was
elated with last Tuesday's win
over Avon Park, avenging the
Sept. 20 loss on the Red Devils'
home course. Hardee reversed
Avon Park's four-stroke victory
by winning this one 166-172.
Once again, senior Kaleb
Saunders was the man to beat as
he rounded the home Torrey
Oaks course in 35 strokes with
three birdies. "This was a great
score, considering the pins were
in very difficult positions,"


VDreamzg af w





At Advanced Home Builders, we I
understand that dream because
we make it come true.


commented Heine.
Behind Saunders was junior
Ben Krause, in at 43 with one
birdie. Seniors James Olliff and
Kyle Cobb were both one
stroke back with 44s to round
out the team scoring. Juniors
Jake Crews and Brek
McClenithan had unusually
high 50s.
The boys went to Lake Placid
last Thursday for a dual match,
winning 164-188. Saunders "a-
gain led the way," carding 36
with one birdie. McClenithan
was next with 41, Krause
scored 43 and Crews 44. Olliff
and Cobb were also in the low
40s.
Meanwhile, the Hardee girls
team had only one match last
week, a quad-match at the
Bluffs in which the Lady 'Cats
placed second. DeSoto won
with 240. Hardee was next at
247, then Avon Park at 249 and
Lake Placid 270.
For Hardee, freshman Kara
Norris was the leader with a 56.
Classmate Emily Williams fin-
ished at 57, freshman Lauren
Moore at 63 and senior Ciarra
Chanchey at 71.
The girls return to DeSoto
today (Thursday) for another
quad-match before the district
competition next Monday at 1
p.m., also at The Bluffs.

JV 'Cats Stop Streaks


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The junior varsity Wildcats
went in front in the third quarter
and held out to defeat the Junior
Streaks 18-7.
Playing at home in a first-half
downpour, Hardee allowed
Sebring only one score and
forced numerous fumbles
throughout the game.
"It was nice to win. It wasn't
pretty. We had jumbled the
offensive line around, with
Herbert Pace at left tackle,
Devon Harris-left guard, Austin
Prestridge-center, Cody Hud-
nall-right guard and Jesus
Villegas-right tackle. They
opened holes when we needed
it.
"We needed this win with the
adversity we've had lately (see
related story). We will have
another tough game tonight
(Thursday) at DeSoto. We will
be glad to get to an open week
next week," said head coach
Rod Smith.
Hardee's only other sched-
uled game is the home finale
(originally set as a road game)
against Okeechobee on Oct. 25.
Efforts to reschedule the rainout
with Braden River have failed.
Last week's game began
amidst showers. The teams
traded possessions early. Then,


a pair of bad snaps by Sebring
enabled the Wildcat defense to
thwart a Blue Streak scoring
opportunity. Recovering its
own fumble on the 12-yard line,
Sebring was held out of the end
zone and settled for a field goal
attempt, which was missed.
The first quarter ended in a 0-
0 tie.
In the first series of the sec-
ond period, Sebring drove to the
Hardee 30 before being stopped
on downs. In the middle of the
second stanza, Wildcat frosh
Jake Mayer finally broke free
for a 57-yard run to the Blue
Streak 8-yard line. Sebring kept
the 'Cats at bay and Hardee
returned the favor, pinning
Sebring deep in its own territo-
ry. Punting from its own end
zone, the Streaks only got the
ball 33 yards.
This time Hardee responded
with a seven-play drive which
ended with 15.5 seconds left in
the half when freshman quarter-
back Scott Donaldson sneaked
into the end zone from the 2-
yard line. The PAT failed, but
Hardee had a 6-0 halftime edge.
Sebring took the second-half
kickoff and turned in into a
score. After three plays, a 60-
yard TD pass was completed
and the extra point kick suc-
ceeded. With 10:32 left in.the

third period, Sebring led 7-6.
Each team went three-and-
out. Hardee ran six plays before
punting. After a pair of plays, a
Sebring fumble was recovered
by Lincoln Saunders, who car-
ried it back to the Sebring 18 as
the third period concluded.
Opening the fourth quarter,
on a third-and-8, Donaldson
rambled 15 yards to put the
junior 'Cats in position to score.
Mayer got the task and churned
into the end zone to put Hardee
in front to stay. Although the
PAT failed, Hardee led 12-7.
Sebring was quickly forced to
punt on its next series. Hardee
ate up the clock in a slow drive
downfield. A short punt put
Sebring at its 30 midway
through the final period. Two
costly penalties moved the
junior Streaks back to their own
15.
With less than four minutes
left, Donaldson picked off a
Streak pass. He then pitched the
ball to Tre Anderson, who
scored from 33 yards out. With
2:35 left, Hardee had an 18-7
advantage, which became the
final score.
Smith credited the good
defensive effort for the win.
"Caleb Whidden had two big
tackles on kickoffs. Linior St.
Louis Jr. had two caused fumble
and Lincoln (Saunders) recov-
ered one of them. With Scott's
interception, the entire defense
held on and made big stops
when they needed to," com-
mented Smith.
He also noted the key carries
and gains for Mayer as part of
the offensive approach.

IS HELL A REAL PLACE?
Q: We hear a lot about Heaven and Hell. But, I was won-
dering if they are real places that exist or just places in our
minds?
Signed, Inquiring Mind

A: Yes! Hell is a real place. The Bible speaks of it as a real
place that is in existence right now.
Let's look at some Scriptures. Deuteronomy 32:22: "For a fire
is kindled in My anger, and shall burn to the lowest hell." Isaiah
14:9: "Hell from beneath is excited about you, to meet you at your
coming." Ezekiel 31:15: "Thus says the Lord God, 'In the day
when it went down to hell ...' Amos 9:2: "Though they dig into
hell, from there My hand shall take them; Though they climb up to
heaven ..." Matthew 12:40: "... So shall the Son of Man be three
days in the heart of the earth."
As we read the Word, we learn bits and pieces about things.
This is why it is so important to read the Bible as a whole. This is
how you gather all the information you need on a subject and come
to a conclusion with the help of the Holy Spirit.
We do know that many watched Jesus as He ascended into
Heaven. He was a real man on His way to a real place. Heaven is
real and so is Hell.
I truly feel that if we could get the reality of Hell back into the
minds of the people and the fear of God back into the hearts of
society, we would see less evil in the world. Too many people try
to soothe their own consciences by believing there is no punish-
ment for evil-doing.
"Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will
give to everyone according to what he has done," Revelation 22:12.
There is a real place of punishment and a real place of reward.
Satan is working overtime to make sure many people go to
Hell. But we have the Good News that Jesus died for our sins, and
grace was given to us so that we would not have to spend eternity
in a place that wasn't even created for us. It was created for the
devil and his angels.
So don't be deceived. Satan is nothing but an ugly, lying, evil
thief who comes to steal your joy, your peace, and your soul.
I suggest you get your Bible out and begin to study Hell and
Heaven. Know who your enemy is and how to defeat him. Get the
Word deep down into your heart, and it will become a very power-
ful weapon that you can use.
And remember, friends don't let friends go to Hell.
Signed, Penny

Grab your fork and start vot-

That time of the year has
arrived once again. Starting on
Monday, students and adults
around Hardee County will
begin to celebrate National
School Lunch Week, which is
Oct. 15-19.
National School Lunch Week
was celebrated in cafeterias all
around the world last year,
including those in all the
schools in the Hardee County
district. In fact, the Food
Service Department had such
tremendous success with its
"Vote For School Lunch" cam-
paign that it has decided to
bring it back for a second serv-
ing of deals, squeals and
healthy meals, according to
Lori Staton, manager of the
cafeteria at Zolfo Springs
Elementary School. -
During the week, students
will vote for their favorite
school lunches. To make voting
more fun and exciting, charac-
ters have replaced the food
.names. So, this, year's,, candi-
dates for favorite school lunch
,are: Pippa Potato, Biff Burger,
Jesse Wrap, Patty Mac &
Cheese, and Yumi Rice Bowl.
The characters are based on the
students' five favorite entrees
throughout the world.


To get ready for the new
annual "Vote For School
Lunch," many schools are dec-
orating their cafeterias, as well
as dressing lunchroom staff, in
red, white and blue. Not only
are they working hard to excite
the students about the upcom-
ing event, but they are also try-
ing to excite the parents, Staton
noted.
All the schools in Hardee
County want to invite parents of
students to come out and sup-
port National School Lunch
Week. The schools have many
things planned for the students
to make this a special week, and
they want the parents to be
involved as well. Every ele-
mentary school is ready to let
you experience as much fun as
your child, Staton said.
This is a time for healthy
meals, voting, decoration and
spending time with loved ones
as the ballots are played for this
year's favorite lunchtime meal.
Will it be Biff Burger, or will
Pippa Potato sprout out a win-
ner?
Come down to Hardee Co-
unty elementary schools during
National -:Shool Lunch Week
and help decide the winner.
To vote for your favorite
lunch, or receive more informa-
tion on National School Lunch
Week, go to www.vote-
forschoollunch.org.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well, Football Fans, a week into October and LSU is at the to
of the ladder in the college polls. The Tiger; impressive second
half comeback over the Gators, coupled with Southern Cal losin
makes the number one debate moot for the time being. Kentuck
could be a trap game for LSU at Lexington coming up. Th
Wildcats will be determined to avenge themselves after the Sout
Carolina loss. This week's loss to LSU has dropped the Gators ou
of the Top 10. Realistically, most SEC Fans knew LSU was th
team to beat in 2007. The Gators have talent but it is too young thi
year.
The USF Bulls were almost caught off guard by the FAI
Owls. One must wonder how this year's notoriety will affect th
USF Bulls who are accustomed to being the hunters not the hun
ed. Key games at Rutgers and Connecticut and home tilts wit
15th-ranked Cincinnati and Louisville highlight the Bulls 200
schedule from here on. If they can keep it going, USF might mov
up past its current number 5 ranking.
FSU has quietly broken back into the Top 25 with a 4-1 record
The ACC seems to be making a comeback in 2007 as improvement
is seen by several teams over 2006. Boston College is ranked 5t
this week. That is laughable when considering the Eagles hav
played a very weak schedule in 2007. Their 6-0 start should tur
into a 7-5 season as the tougher teams come up. Virginia Tech an
Maryland have shown the most improvement since the early sched
ule.

Other points of interest in college football:
1. Ron Zook is turning Illinois around. The 18th-ranked Illii
are 5-1 and bowl bound. The "Land of Lincoln" is on fire wit
renewed hope in the program. Michigan and Ohio State looi
ahead but with Ball State, Minnesota and Northwestern in, th
future, an 8-4 campaign seems realistic.
2. Kansas is 5-0 and Top 20-ranked for the first time in age
Good turnaround for the Jayhawks. The upcoming games gi
tougher but a solid start has the flat lands of OZ noticing.
3. One of the biggest surprizes of 2007 is Cincinnati. Th
Bearcats have moved into 15th place with a 6-0 slate. Wins ove
Rutgers and Oregon State have caught the nations attention.

Now for this week's Bill O' Fare ..
1. Marshall at Tulsa The winless Herd travels to Oklahomr
to face a 3-2 Golden Hurricane team. It should be a shootout bi
Marshall's defense will fail to stop the aerial attack. Tulsa 4
Marshall 41.
2. Georgia at Vanderbilt Dawgs will rebound from th
Tennessee debacle with a solid performance against a stubborn
Commodore squad. Georgia 33 Vandy 13.
3. Tennessee at Miss. State Sylvester Croom's team is 4-
and received votes in the polls for the first time in his era. A wi
over the Vols would be huge for the Bulldogs. However, UT wi
win in a tough game. Tennessee 31 MSU 21.
4. South Carolina at North Carolina Spurrier steps across
the state line to bring home an easy win over an ACC also ran. Th
Gamecocks are coming back under the 01 Ball Coach. USC 4
UNC 13.
5. LSU at Kentucky Trap game for the Tigers? It has all th

makings as UK needs to rebound at home. The real question is, can
UK do it? Think not. LSU 34 UK 24.
6. Alabama at Ole Miss Old time SEC Rival Game that.
won't be a headliner in 2007 but should be a solid game. Ole Miss
in a mild upset. Mississippi 27 Alabama 24.
7. UCF at USF A real grudge game especially since USF
ended this series. The Bulls may have been looking ahead to this
game at FAU. UCF is a formidable foe as Texas learned-earlier.
USF 31 UCF 28.
8. Rutgers at Syracuse Rutgers has fallen from grace with
back-to-back losses to Maryland and Cincinnati. The Orangemen
were blown out by West Virginia but if they had converted a few
plays it would have been a much closer game. Rice is a great back
but the Cuse strength is against the rush.Going out on a limb but
Syracuse in a shocker. Syracuse 24 Rutgers 22.
9. Louisville at Cincinnati The surprising Bearcats take it
to the defenseless Cardinals. Cincy 44 louisville 31.
10. Connecticut at Virginia UConn at 5-0 and Virginia at 5-
1 could be one of the better games this week. My heart says "Go
Huskies" but my head says "Virginia" in this one. Virginia 34
UConn 27.
11. Boston College at Notre Dame I don't usually root for
Notre Dame but when the Irish play a pretender like BC, I will
make an exception. BC is vastly overrated and reality should set in
soon. Notre Dame 28 BC 24.
12. FSU at Wake Forest Must win for the Noles. Revenge
for last year's blowout will motivate as well. This should be a fun
game to watch. FSU 33 Wake Forest 30
13. Georgia Tech at Miami A couple of teams having sim-
ilar up and down weeks this season. This game could be decided by
defense- advantage Miami. Miami 24 GT 17.
14. Auburn at Arkansas -.Auburn has rebounded nicely since
USF but the Hogs trap them at home. Arky 31 Auburn 27.
15. Illinois at Iowa Zook's Illini have a letdown as Iowa is
hungry. Iowa 30 Illinois 21.
16. Tennessee at Tampa Bucs rebound in friendly Ryamond

ow, I regarded him as a pillar of the dog community, a credit to the
ie canine species, an upstanding example to his domesticated peers.
Until I got up at the normal time one Saturday morning, and
found the kitchen floor littered with the contents of the trash can.
It ordinarily takes me a good 15 minutes after waking up to be
able to make any semblance of sense, so I stared at the mess trying
to come up with a logical reason for such a thing to happen.
Since the air conditioning vent rarely puts out gale force
winds, I immediately eliminated this possibility. I also couldn't
imagine one of the girls rummaging through the trash and leaving
a mess, any more than I could imagine a burglar breaking in and
expecting to find something of value in the kitchen trash can.
That only left one option: Frog had desecrated the kitchen
searching for a midnight snack.
I found hirnTsleeping under Jill's left arm and confronted him:
He wakes up every bit as clueless as I do, so he had the unmitigat-
ed gall to wag his tail and smile at me.
"You need to come with me," I growled.
I stalked back to the kitchen, with the telltale "click, click,
click" of toenails following in my wake, and pointed at the mess.
"What were you thinking?"
I turned to glare at him, and found him with his head hanging
between his front paws.
"Frog, this is unacceptable! You're going to have to be pun-
ished."
The dog slithered back to Jill's room while I cleaned up the
mess, and then I went back to Jill's room, peeled the dog off of her
bed, and deposited him in his crate.
I informed the girls of Frog's breach of etiquette and let them
know that he was not to be played with or otherwise paid any atten-
tion to.
"Can I take him out for his walk?" Jenny asked.
"Of course you can, otherwise he'll . yes, but don't talk nicely
to him or pet him. The minute he's done his business, he goes back
in the crate."
She returned five minutes later and informed me that Frog had
performed his task magnificently, and redeposited him in his crate.
A pall fell over the house as we did our best to ignore Frog,
and he lay quietly in his crate, watching us as we passed with sad
eyes.
"How long does he have to be in there?" Jill whispered.
"Until he's learned his lesson."
"But I miss him."
"We need to set a precedent, and let him know that he's been
bad."
"But. ."
"Look, we have to go to the grocery store anyway, and he's
always crated when we leave the house so we'll let him out when
we get back, OK?"
"I guess."
We were gone maybe an hour, and when we returned, both
girls raced to Frog's crate to let him out.
"Mom!" Jillian called, "come and look at this."
"What?"
"Look in the back of Frog's crate."
There in the back corner was a little pebble of poo about the
size of a cherry tomato.
"I thought you said he did his deed this morning," I said to
Jenny.
"He did! A lot!"
"It's almost as though he's punishing us, now," I muttered. I
got this picture in my mind of him hunkering there, straining with
all his might while thinking, "I'll show them! Punish me, will ya?
Well, we'll just see about that."
And then I got to thinking, why would he feel justified in pun-
ishing us back? He got into the trash, so he was in the wrong, not
us. He should accept his punishment and learn from it. Then I got
to thinking that he's never gotten in the trash before, and wonder-
ing why he would do so now.
Then it occurred to me that we had fried chicken for'dinner the
evening before, and at one point in time, I recognized that such
trash should not be left in the kitchen overnight because it would
unfairly tempt certain members of the family, so I implemented an
evening trash-taking-out schedule.
"Who was supposed to take out the trash last night?"
"Me," Jill admitted.
"Then you are to blame for all this, and you have some poo to
clean up."
The look on her face suggested that she had already come to
this conclusion, so she set to her task with no complaint, probably
thinking that it was a good thing that we didn't have a crate that she
would fit in.

Education is an admirable thing, but It is well to remember from
time to time that nothing worth knowing can be taught.

COLLEGE BALL


COURTESY PHOTO
A pair of Hardee Wildcat baseball players had a rare invi-
tation during the summer. Juniors Josh Rodgers (left)
and Tyler Cobb went to a Clemson University baseball
camp for high schoolers. The five-day camp includes
practices from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., during which the 250
attendees were evaluated on their fielding and hitting.
Cobb also participated in pitching. Clemson head coach
Jack Leggett reportedly was impressed with both
Wildcats "for leadership and being good instinctive play-
ers of the game." Cobb came home with top honors and
a plaque as best pitcher. Rodgers brought home runner-
up honors for best outfielder. They are both invited back
for the December scout camp where college scouts will
be on hand to evaluate their abilities. Joshua is the son
of Don Rodgers and Joy Harrison. Tyler is the son of
Ricky and Pam Cobb.

The Squeezin's
By Barbara Car/ton
Peace River Valley Citrus Growers


CROP SIZE INFLUENCES PRICES
Remember the old U.S. Postal Service motto promising that
through wind or rain or sleet, you would still get your mail on
time? I think of that saying when I think about growers and fruit
prices. Better stated for the industry: Through development, dis-
ease, drought and hurricanes, growers think about fruit prices. This
is especially true when crop estimates start being published.
Every August, private crop .estimates start being published and
the buzz around the industry lasts until October, when the USDA
announces its crop estimate. The reason: Crop size dictates fruit
prices.
This year early crop estimates were much higher than expect-
ed, reflecting increases ranging from 40 to 54 percent. These large
numbers have been met with shock and concern from local grow-
ers, who disagreed with the private predictions.
More important, they know high estimates can decrease the
price they are offered for their fruit. They also know these high
estimates may not materialize, yet the damage is done.
This has certainly been the case this year. As the past crop sea-
son came to a close, the higher prices growers received for their
fruit last year were beginning to circulate around the communities.
Growers and service business were seeing a light at the end of the
tunnel and, for the first time in years, were again getting excited
about being in the citrus industry.
This excitement and flow of funds was even attracting specu-
lation of a bright future for the citrus industry. This could be seen
in replanting of fields left fallow by the Citrus Canker Eradication
Program and by real estate inquiries for grove land.
Overnight, the unusually high private crop estimates abruptly
curtailed activities as growers wondered if prices were again about
(o plummnnet..
In September, the USDA announced the 2007 Tree Census,
which no)mnally is done every other year, but in recent years has
bccn coimpleled every year because of the vast changes in the
indtir;lry. The changes have been created by the Canker Eradication
PI gram, hurricane damage and development.
The interim census reviewed acreage in seven of the top cit-
I., producing counties, representing about 56 percent of the total
cllut acreage in the slale. Not surprisingly, the census reflected a
cimiimied high reduction in citrus acreage than has historically
i-nn i cporled. This information again sparked hope within the


industry that the upcoming USDA crop estimate, to be announced
this Friday, will reflect a more believable crop.
The Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association invites all
commercial citrus growers to attend its annual Citrus Estimate
Breakfast tomorrow (Friday) at 8 a.m. The event will be held at the
Joe L. Davis Barn on East Main Street in Wauchula, and is spon-
sored by Joe L. Davis Inc. Realtors. Southeast AgNet will broad-
cast the USDA announcement on local country station WZZS
106.9 FM, which will also broadcast live from the event.
Once the USDA estimate is announced, growers should start
receiving offers for their fruit. Industry processing facilities will


open in November, and buyers will be more confident to offer.price
quotes with the new information.
We have also opened our Cash Fruit Clearinghouse to help
growers market their uncommitted fruit. Any member grower who
has fruit for sale, not already committed through a previous agree-
ment, is invited to list his fruit on this bulletin-board-type listing
shared with fruit buyers. To list, simply call the association office
at 773-2466 and identify the variety and volume of the fruit for
sale, and identify if the fruit is for the fresh or processed market.
The association will then share the list with buyers in hopes of cre-
ating more interest from buyers.


How far should you go? As far as you have to.

Teenagers today have a minefield of risky behaviors to navigate...

drugs. drinking. tobacco. sex.

^ Set clear rules with your teen for safety and guidance.
/ Keep close tabs on your teens. It's not saying you don't trust your teen, it's saying you CARE.
". Get on the internet and familiarize yourself with the kind of content they may be exposed to.
