582-Acre Development Wins Zoning Change


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
More development is coming
to the county.
In last week's zoning meet-
ing, the Hardee County
Commission approved a small
and a very large request for
rezoning.
The small involved a change
back to C-2 (General Commer-
cial) for 5.35 acres adjacent to
the Colonial Arms Motel on
U.S. 17 North at Maxwell
Road. It had been changed to A-


2 (Agriculture) some time ago.
Owners George and Norma
McNary want the acreage in the
Highway Mixed Use Future
Land Use district to be avail-
able for business development
for whoever is interested in it.
Since they sold Wagon Wheel
RV Park, they have been com-
muting to North Carolina where
they are working on a different
development.
The large request for rezon-
ing was for a total of 582.22
acres off Vandolah Road, called


Vandolah Estates, with three
types of acreage. Phase I will
will remain F-R (Farm-Resi-
dential) zoning of 151 acres for
107 Estate Lots.
Next will be 336.33 acres
rezoned from F-R to R-2 (single
family homes and villas). The
final 95 acres rezoned from F-R
to R-3 (multi-family units) with


562 town homes/flats and gar-
den apartments.
Vandolah Estates will be part
of a three-prong proposed Rural
Center which will include the
FINR (Florida Institute for
Neurologic Rehabilitation ) and
the E.L. Davis Jr. properties at
Vandolah Road and CR 663
(Fort Green-Ona Road). The


total will be over 2,063 acres,
3,149 dwelling units, 335,000
square feet of office develop-
ment, 275,000 square feet of
commercial/retail areas, 90
acres light industrial, a 1,033
bed health rehabilitation center,
a 200-bed rehabilitation hospi-
tal and a 200-room hotel.
When built out, based on an


average 3.06 persons per home,
the 1,249 units in Vandolah
Estates will produce a popula-
tion of 3,822. Of these, there
will be 573 elementary, 306
middle and 344 high school stu-
dents.
Peak traffic levels on
Vandolah Road will increase

Happy The Clown was in downtown Wauchula for a brief
visit on Friday morning. His stated purpose was unclear,
as Happy does not speak but uses honks on his bulbous
horn to communicate. No one was available to translate
from the Clownese. Happy is pictured here on the
Hardee County Courthouse lawn moments before he
changed into his alter ego, Nick Sudzina, court adminis-
trator for the 10th Judicial Circuit. The Court
Administrators Office which Sudzina directs is responsi-
ble for "all" court operations, which brought Sudzina
here for the annual Hardee County Courthouse Chilli
Cookoff that afternoon. The local Public Defenders
Office won first place in the competition, second was the
State Probation Office and third was the Eastside
Courthouse, made up of the civil and juvenile depart-
ments of the Clerk of Courts Office. Best Dessert honors
went to Delois Franks for her Halloween Dirt Cake. After
filling with chili, Sudzina headed back to Bartow head-
quarters, with Happy in tow. Sudzina, a hospice volun-
teer, said Happy makes appearances at health-care facil-
ities as well.


Selected to the Homecoming Court were (from left) Junior Class Sweetheart Bailey Knight; Sophomore Sweetheart

Himrod Crowned Homecoming Queen


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
With another gridiron victory
for the Wildcats, a "Decades"-
inspired parade and a new
reigning King and Queen, this
year's Homecoming proved to
be another memorable experi-
ence for residents of Hardee
County.
Many families grabbed their
lawn chairs and candy bags this
past Friday as they prepared for
Hardee Senior High School's
annual Homecoming Parade
through downtown Wauchula.
Floats flashed back in time to
represent the "decades" theme.
In first place was the Junior
Class float,' while the sopho-
mores received second place.
Friday night posted another
win for the Hardee Wildcats
football team as they beat the


Braden River Pirates 42-7.
During halftime, the Blue Star
Brigade band played back-
ground music as the Home-
coming Queen and Class
Sweethearts were announced.
The' Homecoming Queen-of
2006, D.K. Davis, passed her
crown to the new Homecoming
Queen, LeAnna Himrod, at
Friday night's game.
LeAnna, Homecoming
Queen of 2007, is the daughter
of Joe -B. and Sherri Himrod.
She is the captain of the Varsity
Cheerleading Squad, president
of Lionettes, Student Body sec-
retary, Future Farmers of
America treasurer, editor-in-
chief of Wildcat Scratches, and
a member of the Fellowship of
Christian Athletes.
LeAnna's favorite subjects,
government and politics, will


hopefully benefit her in her
future goals of attending the
University of Florida and earn-
ing a degree in political science.
After earning her degree, she
then plans on entering to law
school and obtaining a graduate


degree in corporate law. '
Joining her on the Home-
coming Court are co-ladies-in-
waiting Rebeca Aguilar arid
Ciara Chancey, Junior Class
Sweetheart Bailey Knight,

Moral: Talk To Your Teens!


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"There are only two 14-year-
olds pregnant at this time."
A proclamation of "Let's Talk
Month" brought discussion and
all kinds of statistics on Hardee
County's teen pregnancy rates.
The county has dropped to
number 2 on state teen birth
data in three categories and
number 5 in a key one, births to
girls ages 10-14.
Although the statistics, which
are rounded out to per 1,000,
may be a bit skewed by percent-
ages in a small county com-
pared to urban numbers, one
fact remains, the cost to Hardee
County taxpayers.
In one form or another,
Hardee County taxpayers spent
$1.952 million last year on
births to teens 15-19. Medicaid,
Food Stamps, welfare, pre-
natal, obstetrics and post-natal
care. It does not include the


high school class for teen moth-
ers or transportation of high
school and junior high mothers
for their children to day care on
the way to their school day.
These costs are met by a special
state funding program, said
Schools Superintendent Dennis
Jones.
The larger question involves
why teens and pre-teens are get-
ting pregnant. On Thursday, the
Hardee County Commission
approved the proclamation of
October as "Let's Talk Month,"
a national event.
Presented by Leslie Bond,
Health Department social work
services program manager, the
proclamation calls on parents to
"be the first and most influen-
tial source of sexual education
for children and adolescents.
A sincere and honest approach
to sexuality and the ability to
inform children in an appropri-
ate manner are principles that


promote healthy sexual atti-
tudes and behavior.
"By working together, par-
ents and their communities can
provide the information and
support necessary to prepare
today's young people for their
future endeavors as responsible
adults and nuturing parents,"
.concludes the proclamation.
With a half dozen other mem-
bers of the combined Hardee
County Teen Prevention Alli-
ance and Drug Prevention
Coalition supporting her, Bond
talked to commissioners about
the crisis in teen pregnancy.
"Statistics show some teens
get pregnant in the summer
:between seventh and eighth
grades. For others, the danger
hours are 3 to 7 p.m. when they
are unsupervised.

Dale Johnson, "When I was
young, it was 'don't be out after

Youngsters dining at McDonald's on Tuesday night of last
week may have been startled to spy Superintendent of
Schools Dennis Jones serving up their french fries.
Jones hasn't taken on a second job, as his primary duties
tend to keep him occupied enough, but was earning
extra money for the Take Stock In Children program.
McDonald's donated a percentage of its sales from 5 to
8 p.m. for the cause, which provides four-year college
scholarships to students selected on the basis of their
financial need and good academic and discipline
records. Said Jones of the experience, "It's hard work!"
Of Take Stock In Children, he added, "I believe it is the
greatest student-assistance program that I've ever seen,
and I was happy to participate."

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The Hardee High School Wildcat football team is 6-1, ranked
12th in the state in 3-A, and will play at Cape Coral Friday night.
Hardee had a strong second half last Friday for a 42-7 home-
coming win over Braden River.

The Boston Red Sox are playing the red-hot Colorado Rockies
in the World Series.
The New York Yankees are looking for a new manager after
Joe Torre declined an offer to manage next year for $5 million plus
$3 million in incentives. He was paid a flat $7.5 million in 2007,
his 12th season with New York.
I remember Joe as an excellent third baseman for the St. Louis
Cardinals and as manager of the Atlanta Braves when the Braves
were not very good.

Our Tampa Bay Devil Rays finished in last place in Major
League Baseball with a 66-96 record.
The Rays next season will continue to offer free parking (four
or more fans per vehicle), and you can bring in your own food and
drinks into Tropicana Field. Tampa Bay has-some good young
players, a patient manager in Joe Madden and offers MLB only 75
minutes driving time from Wauchula.

The Hardee YMCA is having a scenic 3.1-mile race/walk Nov.
10 at Hardee Lakes as a fundraiser. The race begins at 8 a.m., and
the family fest will last until I p.m.
Mosaic is the naming sponsor for this fourth annual Veterans
Day run. Other major sponsors are CF Industries and Vandolah
Power Company. There will be commemorative T-shirts for the
first 100 runners and walkers. Java Cafe will provide a continental
runners' breakfast. There will be free horse and buggy tours of the
1,150-acre park. Call 773-6445 for more information.

Our son Jonathan, 15, came home Friday after 15 days at All
Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg. He is recovering well from
his bout with MRSA staph infection and Stephens-Johnson
Syndrome reaction to an antibiotic.
Our family is very thankful for all the community support and
prayers.
Wauchula native Danny Vasquez is chief of respiratory thera-
py at All Children's Hospital.
We have first-hand appreciation for McDonalds Inc. which
sponsors the Ronald McDonald Houses at many hospital through-
out the country. They offer a home away from home for families of
children in hospitals. They offer lodging and food for only $10 a
night plus a small daily chore.
Bo and Candace Conerly of Wauchula were also at All
Children's and Ronald McDonald House while their son William
was at the hospital.

midnight' and now it's the after-
noon."
The "Risky Behaviors" com-
bined coalition meets the sec-
ond Tuesday of each month at 9
a.m. at the county Extension
Service office. Anyone con-
cerned with teen drinking,
drugs, and pregnancy is wel-
come.
"Don't just let .it happen.
Initiate conversations with your
kids. Don't bury your heads in
the sand and 'hope' or think
everything is safe. Learn how to
begin, start conversations with
your teens," said Carolyn
Wyatt, Extension Service pro-
gram coordinator. The coalition
recently placed 10,000 place-
mats in 27 area restaurants to
get the message out on parental
responsibility to talk to their
kids before risky behavior
begins.
Bond provided additional
local statistics and national re-
ports. Usually 50 percent of
teen mothers drop out of school.
Of these, 70 percent don't even
obtain a GED (General Equiva-
lency Diploma). They are 50
percent more likely to depend
on welfare and 24 percent will
have another child while still a
teenager.
A whopping 57 percent are
likely to remain a single parent.
Of the fathers of teens' births
more than 40 percent are age 20
or older. Only 20 percent marry
the teen mothers of their first
child. The other 80 percent pay
less than $800 a year in child
support.
Even more sobering are sta-
tistics on the babies of teen
mothers. They are more often of
low or very low birth weight
and are more likely to die in the
first month of life. They are at


high risk of lifelong disability
and developmental delays.
Their long-term health- prob-
lems make them 50 percent
more likely to repeat a grade.
At the Health Department,
teens are entered into a pre-
natal program which includes
counseling on birth control and
prevention of additional preg-
nancies. In the Healthy Start
program, there are parenting
classes and challenges to have
goals other than just "being a
Mommy."
Now, there is an Early Steps
program which provides early
intervention for children up to
one year with developmental
delays. Soon there will be a
Healthy Families program,
which will include intensive in-
home work with the parent and
child up to age five to help them
catch up and be prepared for
school.
The concern gets back to
when teens get pregnant. Latch-
key kids, those whose parents
are both employed and who
are not engaged in after school
or community activities, such
as sports or clubs are most at
risk.
Ag, a- Patrix of risky behaviors
shows a pattern. When drinking
or using drugs, there are low-
ered resolve, resistance and rea-
soning, and a moment of non-
abstinence can result in an
unplanned pregnancy.
It's time to talk!


You give but little when you
give of your possessions.
It is when you give of your-
self that you truly give.

Whole Grains: More Than You Think


Many people associate whole
grains exclusively with fiber.
But there is more to the story. If
there weren't, we could get
equal health benefits by stick-
ing to refined grains and taking
fiber supplements. According to
a new study, however, the hea-
lth benefits of whole grains are
far greater than people realize.
Whole grains contain all
three parts of the grain kernel:
an outei bran layer, a large cen-
tral section called the endo-
sperm and an inner core, called
the germ. When whole grains
are refined (for example, when
whole wheat is milled to'vhite
flour or when brown rice is
refined to make white rice) the
bran and germ are removed.
When experts realized that re-
fining grains removed nutrients,
a process was standardized to
add back three B vitamins and
iron, creating "enriched" re-
fined grains. In recent years,
another B vitamin, folic acid,
has been added, too.
Despite the added vitamins
and minerals, enriched refined
grains remain lower in other
nutrients when compared to
whole grains. In a 2006 study of
adults in a weight management
program, those whose diets
included whole grains con-
sumed more fiber, more magne-
sium and more vitamin B-6
than those consuming equal
calories without whole grains.
The difference in the phyto-
chemical content of whole
grains versus refined grains is
also gaining increased atten-
tion. Phytochemicals natu-
rally found in whole grains,
vegetables, fruits and beans -
are not vitamins or minerals,
but are compounds that seem to
promote good health. Emerging
research suggests that, acting as
antioxidants or through other
mechanisms, phytochemicals
may offer heart protection and
help prevent cancer develop-
ment. Refining grains and elim-
inating the bran and germ layers
removes nearly all of the'bene-
ficial antioxidant activity.
Increased fiber consumption
is of course the most well
known benefit of eating more
whole grains. This not only pro-
motes bowel regularity, but
seems to decrease risk of a
common intestinal disorder
called diverticulosis. Fiber also
aids in blood sugar manage-


ment and certain types of fiber
can reduce blood cholesterol.
Greater whole grain con-
sumption has been linked to 20
to 30 percent lower risk of dia-
betes and heart disease. This
link likely involves more than'
just fiber. Some studies suggest
that whole grains play a role in
controlling generalized inflam-
mation throughout the body, a
condition that may be tied to
development of a variety of
chronic diseases from diabetes
and heart disease to cancer and
other conditions.
Whole grains have also been
linked to lower mortality rates.
For example, greater whole
grain consumption was associ-
ated with a reduction in death
from heart disease in the Iowa
Women's Health Study. More


recently, a study published in
the American Journal of Clini-
cal Nutrition reported that those
who consumed from 1.5 to well
over 3 servings of whole grains
daily were 35 percent less like-
ly to die of inflammation-relat-
ed disorders (including respira-
tory, digestive, kidney, skin and
hormonal disorders with in-
flammatory components).
In some studies, greater
whole grain intake is linked to
lower risk of colon cancer. In a
Swedish study, for example,
women consuming 4.5 or more
servings a day were 35 percent
less likely to develop colon can-


cer than those who ate less than
1.5 servings a day. However,
two other studies have shown
no link between whole grains
and colon cancer risk.
The idea that whole grains
are simply a source of fiber no
longer holds true. While emerg-
ing science continues to inform
us regarding the benefits of
consuming whole grains, we
await more science detailing
ideal levels of consumption.
Meanwhile, at least three serv-
ings daily are recommended.
Examples of serving size
include one slice of whole grain
bread or half a cup of cooked
whole grain pasta or brown rice.

After Childhood Cancer:

Long-Term Concerns


Today about 270,000 Ameri-
cans are survivors of pediatric
cancer. In fact, the five-year
survival rate of pediatric cancer
patients has increased more
than 40 percent since the 1970s.
Nearly 80 percent of children
and adolescents diagnosed with
cancer now beat the disease.
But they seem to be at risk for
long-term health problems.
The Childhood Cancer
Survivor Study is an ongoing
study that includes roughly
10,000 men and women who
were treated for childhood can-
cer in the 1970s and 1980s, as
well as 3000 of their siblings.
Thirty years after their cancer
diagnoses, almost three-fourths
of the patients followed now
have a chronic health problem
and one-third have more than
one. Among the reported health
problems are: heart and lung
disease, impaired kidney func-
tion, severe muscle or bone
problems and various hormone
abnormalities.
Although chronic health
problems do become more
common as we age, these can-
cer survivors were eight times
more likely than their siblings
to have severe health problems.
Survivors of bone or nervous
-system tumors, as well as those
with Hodgkin's disease, seemed
especially likely to develop
health problems.


Other research has found
similar increased rates of health
problems among survivors of
pediatric cancers. In a 2007
study, at an average age of just
24, almost three quarters of the
childhood cancer survivors
studied had five or more health
problems. These included:
thought-processing and emo-
tional problems, amputations,
nervous system.damage, fertili-.
ty problems, kidney damage
and second cancers.
Similarly, a small study of
teenagers who had been treated
for leukemia five to six years
earlier, found that eye-hand
coordination and physical fit-
ness remained lower than nor-
mal. According to researchers,
chemotherapy may negatively
affect nerve and muscle func-
tion. Some suggest that -physi-
cal training after treatment may
help alleviate these problems.
Other research indicates that
physical, mental and emotional
problems may not materialize
until many years after treatment
for childhood cancer. Re-
searchers in the UK Children's
Cancer Study Group emphasize
the importance of good follow-
up care to facilitate early diag-
nosis and better management of
developing problems.
In addition to careful moni-
toring, perhaps survivors of
childhood cancer could benefit

Honors Veterans


In an effort to honor the role
that America's men and women
in uniform have played in
securing our privilege to cast a
ballot each Election Day, the
Hardee County Supervisor of
Elections Office has imple-
mented the "Vote in Honor of
a Vet" program.
Citizens are encouraged to
bring copies of old military
photos of family members or
friends to the Elections Office
at 311 N. Sixth Ave. -in
Wauchula. Photos should be
no larger than 5x7s. Photos of
active military personnel" will-
S..lso be welcomed. ,,R.
Those bringing in copies of
photographs will be asked to fill
out a biographical form on the.
subject..-The biographies will be


kept in a notebook inside the
Election's Office for interested
citizens to read.
The photos themselves will
be displayed in the main
entrance to the Elections Office
on what will be known as the
"Walls of Honor." They will be
there for all to see throughout
the year and during election
times, when the reality of the
freedom Americans enjoy
because of the service of these
men and women, and those who
made the ultimate sacrifice for
their country, is most notice-
able.
Stop by and browse the veter-
ans on the Walls of Honor, and
come in to look at the biogra-
phies, once the book is avail-
able.


Teen Book Review
By Alma Ruiz

Students at Hardee Junior High School have participated in Teen
Read Week, and are reading more books "just for the fun of it."
What follows is a review of a book by one of the teens.

THE OLD WILLIS PLACE
By Mary Downing Hahn
Have you read any mystery books lately? If you haven't, then
I have the book for you!
This mystery book is called "The Old Willis Place" by Mary
Downing Hahn.
This book is about two little kids, Diana and Georgie, who are
trying to bond with a girl from a different time. Her name is Lissa
and she is the daughter of the caretaker for the old Willis house.
If you want my opinion on this book, then I will tell you that
it is the best mystery book I have ever read! When I was supposed
to go to bed I would tell myself just one more chapter, but I would
read about five chapters! My favorite part was when Miss Lillian
told Diana and Georgie why they had died.
I recommend this book to all who enjoy reading mystery
books. I also recommend this book to all who enjoy solving mys-
teries. If you do enjoy solving mysteries, then this is the book for
you!

from advice frequently given to
adult cancer patients: Maintain
a healthy weight. Weight main-
tenance is increasingly recom-
mended to decrease incidence
and recurrence of many types of
adult cancers. Since excess
weight is also linked to heart
disease and other health prob-
lems, weight control might
offer additional benefits to sur-
vivors of childhood cancer.
Although some survivors tend
to be underweight, studies show
that others, especially survivors
of acute lymphoblastic leu-
kemia, are frequently over-
weight.
As cancer treatments
improve, the goal is to develop
regimes with fewer long-term
negative effects. Even now,
these studies remind us that
health problems do not occur in
all survivors, with many report-
ing excellent quality of life.
Research has shown, however,
the need for increased monitor-
ing of health problems in child-
hood cancer survivors and
monitoring at an earlier age -
than in the general population.

the Red Cross wants your family to have a safe Halloween, so it's provid-
ing these tips, the lucky 13:

1.) Map out the route that you plan to roam, so adults are assured
you will find your way home!
2.) From the bravest of superheroes to the noblest of knights,
everyone should remember to bring their flashlights!
3.) If you visit a house where a stranger resides, accept treats at the
door and please, don't go inside.
4.) When you get ready to put on your disguise, use face paint
instead of masks, which will cover your eyes.
5.) Always remember, before you embark, to wear light-colored
clothing to be seen in the dark! (And remember to use reflective
tape, even on bikes, skateboards and brooms!)
6.) Whether you walk, slither or sneak, do it on the sidewalks and
not in the street.
7.) As you roam through the neighborhood collecting your treats,
please look both ways before crossing the street! (And cross from
the corner!)
8.) Wigs, capes and costumes are flammable attire, so avoid open
flames to prevent a fire!
9.) Use a glow stick instead of a candle, so your jack-o-lantern isn't
a safety gamble!
10.) You may fly on a broom or a space ship from Mars, but please
be on the lookout for drivers in cars! (And don't hide between
parked vehicles.)
11.) Monsters and zombies should stay off the lawn, and only visit
homes with their porch lights turned on!
12.) You may be dressed as a werewolf, a cat or a frog, but be cau-
tious around strange animals, especially dogs.
13.) Have a grown-up inspect your candy when you're done trick-
or-treating to remove open packages and choking hazards before
eating.

Most importantly, the local Red Cross wants you to have a fun and safe
Halloween!

owners, contact the local chapter at 773-9097 or visit the area Web site at

1. Do you have a strategic marketing plan?
To simply refer to our "Misssion
Statement" by saying we are trying to attract
"high paying high skilled jobs" is not adequate.
We are experiencing an economic transition
from "Agricultural Based" service and supply
to "something else".
This "something else" is hard to pin down.
The Industrial Development Authority in con-
junction with the Economic Development
Office is having some success -.- uiting new
businesses in the "Hardee Commerce Park."
There seems to be good diversity with cosmet-
ics manufacturing, marine wiring manufactur-
ing, a truss company, a tile manufacturing/dis-
tribution plant, and a planned large distribution
center. J
We need to evaluate the impact of the
State's insurance crisis, the revamping of the
property tax system and the national rise in
interest rates and its resultant effects on the
overall business climate in the State, especially
this region.
Additionally, we need to internally plan
with County staff on appropriate locations for
various types of businesses that will be recruit-
ed in the future. Timing and availability of
infrastructure is critical for commercial/indus-
trial expansion.
Demographic data specific to Hardee
County must be assimilated into usable infor-
mation in order to properly allocate labor and
housing resources to existing economies such
as agriculture, phosphate and government serv-
ices sector employment opportunities. Com-
muter resources must also be factored in to
accommodate diversity above existing labor
capacity.
Politically, and not necessarily from the
Commission, we seemp to be somewhat divided
over rapid or significant conversion from our
traditional agricultural based economy. We
may need some political clarification on direc-
tion and aggressiveness of diversity and/or
expansion.
We will continue to assimilate data on
labor, housing, infrastructure, transportation
and government philosophy to properly foster
and promote suitable economic diversity and
expansion. We are essentially a "site in search
of a user and the proper marketing strategy is
an evolving "work in progress."

2. Should the BOCC consider imposing a
condition that EDC members operate under
the Sunshine Law?
If it is legally permissible to operate as a
private "501 (C) (3)" non- profit, then to be
most effective it should be out "of the sun-
shine." However, this is not to say that the pub-
lic, as a matter of public/political policy,
should not be kept as informed as practical into
what the EDC is striving for. Some aspects of
this "Company's" business are absolutely con-
fidential and must remain so.
Tl
3. Why did the upper, limit on advertising
the position of the EDC Director exceed the
amount approved by the BOCC?
Market conditions.

4. Why wasn't the BOCC included on input
of potential candidate?
How involved does the BOCC want to be?
Macro vs. micro involvement along with the
logistics of a 15 person Council communicat-
ing with a 5 person Commission make proto-
cols of merging thoughts jointly difficult. A
person traveling from out of the community,
meeting with a majority of Council Members
coordinated with the advertising requirements
of the Commission is difficult, if not impossi-
ble.

5. Are you going to give the BOCC quar-
terly updates?
We will be excited about providing the
BOCC updates quarterly. If more than that is
appropriate, we will keep you or your staff
apprised as necessary or as you request.

6. Are you going to give the EDC an annu-
al presentation for budget requests?
Most definitely!

7. How do you make sure that the EDC
Board members are made aware of meet-
ings?
We will telephone and mail as primary
sources to notice them of meetings. Regular
mail will, of course, be utilized when possible.


8. Are you giving sufficient attention to
maintaining friendly relationships with
other governmental agencies (BOCC,

Chamber of Commerce, City of Wauchula,
Bowling Green, & Town of Zolfo Springs)?
If so, how?
While our relationships should be friendly,
we have not developed an efficient process to
establish orderly, effective inter-relationships.
This will be priority in the upcoming months.
We need to become aware of each of their
infrastructure capacities and needs. We must
find a way to mutually work for each other's
benefit. It starts with good communication.

9. How are you going to tie line item budget
transfers to the strategic plan?
By communications with the County
Manager's office.

10. How will you adopt a formal process to
account for line item transfer approvals?
Through communications with County
staff.

11. Are you going to analyze market trends
and strategies of communities similar to
Hardee County when making plans for eco-
nomic growth?
This is certainly one important criteria,
however, there are many other factors to con-
sider: air access (freight and commercial ),
availability of land, the cost and availability of
capital and labor, transportation access (prima-
rily highway), inventory of available sites
(both private and public) and their proximity to
infrastructure and compatibility with "growth
management," labor issues, population demo-
graphics and densities, real estate price and
lease rates, rail accessibility, workforce avail-
ability, and education opportunities. Addition-
ally, we must consider the effects of property
tax rates and impact fees as opposed to tax
incentives such as abatements, enterprise
zones, "State Brownfield" zones and grant
opportunities.

12. What kinds of advertising mediums are
you planning to use?
Once we have provided some definition to
some the previously mentioned issues we
should be able to refine a search through "data
base marketing," direct mail and possibly
though email. Additionally, general and spe-
cific business magazines and trade journals
combined with trade shows and conferences
are options. Also, the traditional sources of
personal visits, phone calls, press releases and
real estate firms will be utilized. Further devel-
opment of the website is also needed.

13. If a potential customer asks you to send
information, do you have what you need to
do that?
We have plenty of technology. We have
some information, but more fesearch-and data
collecting must occur for us fo be mote effec-
tive.

14. Do you have a list of Hardee County's
strengths and weaknesses?
A "swat" analysis was done several years
back at the health de-partment. The "Best
Western Hotel", garbage pickup; and avail-
ability of high speed data were results of that
analysis. We could not find the recommenda-
tions from that meeting. However, the Central
Florida Regional Planning Council recently did
a "swat analysis and it is available for the
region.

15. How do you think the EDC is perceived
in the community?
From some perspectives it may be our
greatest tool for making prosperity available to
a broader range of Hardee Countians. Others
may see it as the demise of an earlier way of
life, and consequently feel threatened.

16. How will you evaluate the progress of
you plan?
It may take a generation to see a marked
difference in economic indicators that measure
performance (wage rates, unemployment, pop-
ulation increase/decrease, quality of life indi-
cators such as restaurants, churches, schools,
etc.). Initially we will closely monitor new jobs
created and secondary impacts of those new
jobs in the service sector. However, we not take
for granted those existing businesses and their
economic well-being.

Lambert Now Heads EDC


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
One of his first duties was to
satisfy questions.
Local businessman, former
politician and representative on
many local and regional boards,
Bill Lambert has seen and done
a little of everything in the past.
He agreed to take that wealth
of education and experience
and put it to work as the interim
director of the Hardee County
Economic Development Coun-
cil (EDC).
He began the job on Oct. 8.
Quickly, he faced his first chal-
lenge appear before the
Hardee County Commission on
Oct. 18 and answer its questions
about how EDC and the associ-
ated Industrial Park Authority
(IDA) worked.
A former commissioner, and
current chairman of the Hardee
County Economic Develop-
ment Authority (Independent
Severance Tax Board), Lambert
is no stranger to challenges.
"Economic progress in the
county has always been my pas-
sion. That's why I ran for the
commission in 1999, and why
I'm on the Wauchula Airport
Authority and the Economic.
Development Authority which
spends severance tax money
and have stayed attuned to
Hardee County politics."
He is a member of the Torrey
Groves Community board and
owner/operator of Torrey Oaks
Golf Course. A graduate of
Hardee High School and the.
University of Florida with a
degree in real estate and urban
development, he has also been
a member of the School Board
and commission legislative liai-
son and commission member
on such diverse groups as
Florida Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative
Inc., and the Tampa Bay
Partnership for transportation
issues.
Asked about his goals as
interim EDC director, Lambert
said there are several, all con-
cerned with growth. "We
should have the courage to face
growth with intelligence and do
it right. We can't run from it.
We're the last frontier in the
state, in the geographic center
of the state. We want to keep the
traditions and values of the
small town while growing."
Lambert said one of his first
tasks is to "to make this office
function efficiently and proper-
ly and to learn about what we
are and who we are as a com-
munity. There's still a yearning,
an urgency in a broad section of
Hardee County to diversity its
economy. That doesn't mean to
diminish agriculture or its
importance but to become less
dependent on it as an economic
base."


Lambert
Another one of his tasks is to
be manager of the Hardee
Commerce Park through the
Industrial Development Autho-
rity (IDA). "That takes an enor-
mous amount of time," he com-
mented.
He immediately clarified, as
he had in the commission meet-
ing, that the Commerce Park is
funded by severance tax dol-
lars. "Originally, the commis-
sion borrowed money to
acquire the property and devel-
op the park. There are no ad
valorem (property tax) dollars
spent on it. In fact, severance
tax monies were used to reim-
burse the commission loan for
the property purchase.
"All expansions since then
have occurred .with .severance
tax funds. The Commerce Park
is self-supporting and IDA
functions with revenue from the
sale of the lots in the park," he
further explained.
Organix, an-international cos-
metic company, and SCOSTA
-roof truss company are already
firmly settled in the park. Pacer
Marine and Alleyndeb, an inte-
rior tile company, are under
construction. Two others are
under negotiation.
Lambert asked the commis-
sion to waive permitting for the
latter, a nationwide distribution
company interested in four lots
in the park. The commission
agreed to share the permitting
costs fifty-fifty.
Lambert said it is important


to monitor existing businesses,
commercial development and
agriculture. "Making sure it
stays healthy is a priority of the
people here," he said, noting
,that only a portion of his job is
to work with the IDA on the
Commerce Park.
"Basically, as interim EDC
director, my job is public rela-
tions and promotion of the
county. I'm the top cheerleader
for Hardee County."
Commissioner Dale Johnson
said he had asked the questions
about EDC "not as a witch hunt
or interrogation, but to help
'them be on the same page and
the commission help EDC to
move forward."
Lambert said he approached
the commission in an attitude of
"peace, joy, harmony and some
trepidation, which you just
removed." He hit the highlights
in answering the questions. The
questions and his answers are
attached.
Lambert said little had been
done by former director Jim
Berg on a strategic marketing
plan and demographic data for
it was now being collected. The
plan should be ready by the first
of the year, he said.
"I applaud your asking ques-
tions and wanting to justify the
money spent to the people of
Hardee County. You appointed
a 15-member Economic
Development Council to work
Son development of diversity in
industry and jobs. They are try-
ing to do a competent job, they
are capable people."
He reiterated that severance
tax dollars are the capital in-
vestment for the IDA park and
it is working. "Let's hitch the
wagon, gee and haw, and get
going," he concluded.

I expect to pass through
life but once. If, therefore,
there be any kindness I
can show, or any good
thing I can do for any fel-
low being, let me do it now
... as I shall not pass this
way again.

'Cats Pop Pirates 42-7; Play Seahawks Next


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Spotting the Braden River
Pirates a one-point lead at half-
time, the Hardee Wildcats
roared back to handily win their
Homecoming game 42-7-.
Following a scoreless and
slow second period, the 'Cats
came back to shut down the
Pirates and pick up 36 points in
the final 24 minutes, including
18 on defense/special teams.
This week, the Wildcats trav-
/ el to Cape Coral to take on the
Seahawks, a 5A-12 school with
a 6-2 record, losing only to
Naples on Sept. 14 and Fort
Myers last Thursday evening.
The Seahawks have beaten
Immokalee, Lehigh, North Fort
Myers, Fort Myers Dunbar,
Cape Coral Baker and Estero.
"They're athletic, big and good
in both the run and receiving,"
said Wildcat coach Tim Price.
He doesn't want the Wildcats
looking past Cape Coral to the
Nov. 2 Senior Night game
against arch-rival and unbeaten


DeSoto in the oldest rivalry in
the state. The teams are tied for
ninth place in the state 3A poll.
The Bulldogs can wait for next
week's practice. This week
focuses on the Seahawks.
Cape Coral contests oppo-
nents with senior quarterback
David Pasquale and junior
Colin Saring. There are 18
seniors, 16 juniors, only five
sophs and ninth grade wide-out
Prince Holloway.
Hardee responds with a tal-
ented group offensively and
defensively. Senior tailback
Jimmy Cimeus added a pair of
touchdowns to the 11 he already
had this season. Quarterback,
safety and punt return man
Jordan Grimsley ran two kicks
back for TDs. Jose Casteneda
added a pair of field goals, four
PAT kicks and averaged 40
yards a punt.
Defensively, both Antjuan
Jones and Nolan Neuhauser had
interceptions, with Neuhouser
racing 50 yards to cross the goal
line. Wade Mahoney, David


Newcomb, Postene Louisjeune
and Logap Thomas were also
around the 'ball all night.
Jake Mayer, one of those
coming up from the JV in its
open week, took scout team
honors for his work running the
ball all week. Others up from
the JV for last week's game are
Scott Donaldson, Carson Davis,
Tyler Alden and Dalton Farr.
The JV boys finish their season
tonight (Thursday) at home
against Okeechobee.
It was a grind-it-out first half
against Braden River except
for one Pirate play.
The maroon-and-white won the
toss and deferred to the second
half. The, short kickoff was
fielded the up-man Devonte
Carter and run back a dozen
yards. Hardee picked up a pair
of first downs on a lateral to
Kelsheem White and ground
gains by Cimeus.
Grimsley rolled left and cut
in for a 16-yard gain. When
Cimeus slanted left for 18 more
yards, Hardee was knocking on








THURSDAY
"Though the mountains be
shaken and the hills be
removed, yet My unfailing
love for you will not be shak-
en, nor My covenant of
peace be removed," says
the Lord, who has compas-
sion on you.
Isaiah 54:10 (NIV)"

FRIDAY
Then I saw Heaven opened,
and behold a white horse!
He who sat upon it is called
Faithful and True, and in
righteousness He judges
and makes war (on Satan)...
On his robe and on His thigh
He has a name inscribed,
King of kings and Lord of
lords."
Revelation 19:11,16 (RSV)

SATURDAY
Is anyone crying for help?
God is listening, ready to res-
cue you. If your heart is bro-
ken, you'll find God right
there; if you're kicked in the
gut, He'll help you catch your
breath.
Psalm 34:17-18 (ME)

SUNDAY
There is only one God, and
only one intermediary be-
tween God and man, the
Man Jesus Christ. He gave
Himself as a ransom for us all
- an act of redemption
which happened once, but
which stands for all time as a
witness of what He is.
I Timothy 2:5 (PME)

MONDAY
God is not a human being,
and He will not lie. He is not
a human, and He does not
change His mind. What He
says, He will do. He does
what He promises, He
makes it come true.
Numbers 23:19 (NCV)

TUESDAY
(Jesus said), "Come to Me,
all whose work is hard,
whose load is heavy; and I
will give you relief. Bend your
necks to My yoke, and learn
from Me, for I am gentle and
humblehearted; and your
souls will find relief. For my
yoke is good to bear, My
load is light."
Matthew 11:28 (NEB).

WEDNESDAY
Understand, therefore, that
the Lord your God is the
faithful God, who for a thou-
sand generations keeps His
promises and constantly
loves those who love Him
and who obey His com-
mands.
Deuteronomy 7:9 (TLB)


the Pirate door. Despite three
solid tries, Hardee was unable
to open the door. Castaneda hit
the first field goal, a 24-yarder.
Pirate junior quarterback
Willlie McNeal started Braden
River at its 29. His first pass
was picked off by Jones and
returned it a dozen yards.
Hardee was in business again.
Braden River resisted the
Wildcat attempt to score and
Castaneda booted a 32-yard
field goal. Hardee led 6-0.
It didn't take long for that to
change. McNeal dropped the
kickoff but quickly snatched it
up and went up the sideline and
across the field for a 95-yard
TD. The Justin Stanley kick put
the Pirates up 7-6.
That score held until halftime
as the teams went back and
forth, up and down the field. At
halftime, LeArina Himrod was
crowned 2007 Homecoming
Queen amid the usual fanfare.
"What did you say to them at
halftime?" Coach Price was
asked after the game. "You real-


ly don't want to know," he said
with a wry smile.
It must have gotten the
Wildcats' attention because it
was a very different half. Bra-
den River had first crack at the
ball and gained a couple of first
downs before punting the ball
to the 'Cats. Grimsley surprised
the Pirates by launching a long
pass to Cimeus alone at mid-
field for an 80-yard TD. Cimeus
also cut in to the end zone for a
two-point conversion to put
Hardee in front to stay 14-7.
An apparent 50-yard Pirate
touchdown on the next series
was nullified by a penalty
which put Braden River at first-
and-20. After off-setting penal-
ties, Braden River's Thomas
Ely punted. Grimsley took the
ball on the 10-yard line, bob-
bled it and kept running.
Somehow, he came through the
pile-up at the west sideline and
ran unscathed for the 90-yard
TD. With Casteneda's kick, that
made it 21-7.
As the Pirates began their


next series, a pass interference
penalty put them at the Wildcat
48 before a holding penalty
backed them up. In the grasp of
the defender, quarterback
Jajuan Bell tried to throw the
ball. It was snared by Neu-

will educate participants on
ways to create a dignified,

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

BITTER ABOUT YOUR JOB?
What about that job you work at? I'm referring to that sub-
standard occupation where you aren't paid enough, you are treated
like someone's slave, and your best efforts are scorned.
Do you chafe under it, complain about it, point out to your
friends how unfair it is?
Actually, it may be-pretty unfair. But think ahead to the time
your circumstances will be different, because all human situations
change in time.
Will you want to look back with regret and call these days "a
black chapter" in your. life, or will you want to think of it as a time
when your trust in Go4 caused you to triumph, when you sailed
right over all the insults and difficulties untouched, glad-hearted
and free?
The Bible tells of a man who did that.
Joseph was so hated by his brothers that they sold him into
slavery in Egypt. But Joseph never gave in to bitterness. Instead, he
trusted that God was behind all his circumstances. He worked hard
at each job he was given.
The result: He was promoted again and again until he became
prime minister of Egypt. In this position, he was able to save his
family from starvation and to bless those no-good brothers.
Why is such a story in the Bible? Could it have relevance to
you and that miserable job you suffer in?
What if you refuse to give in to self-pity? What if you discov-
er that the most important thing in life is pleasing the One who cre-
ated you?
If you do these things, watch out. You may find yourself pro-
moted.


Golden Nuggets
By Lorraine and John Gillespie
Alpha & Omega Freedom Ministries I


And we receive from Him whatever we ask, because we
obey His commands and practice what is pleasing to
Him.
IJohn 3:22
If we are confident that we are saved, that He truly loves us
and that if we ask anything according to His will, He listens to and
hears us ..,
Why do we struggle so much to receive of God?
The Word tells us He wants the best for us, and certainly wants
to bless us. Abide in the Word so we can abide in Him, and He
abide in us.
By knowing the Word we know what His promises are for our
life, and by knowing the promises we can stand and believe what
they say so we can receive. Isn't that great?
A Golden Nugget is to abide in His Word and: Him.

Transportation Key To Hardee Future


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Repairing the past and plan-
ning for the future set the focus
on transportation.
At its meeting last week, the
Hardee County Commission
attacked the issue of how to get
its share of state and federal
transportation financing.
One bit of good news was
approving an agreement with
the state Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) for major
repairs and some mitigation on
the bridges on Lake Branch
and Heard Bridge roads.
These bridges were damaged

by hurricanes Charley and
Frances and only emergency
repairs were done at that time.
This rehabilitation will include
replacement of eroded head
walls, scouring and/or replace-
ment of the pilings and repaint-
ing the peeled structures. The
county road department will be
responsible to maintain these
bridges.
The commission also spent a
lengthy time discussing wheth-
er to join with DeSoto, Glades,
Hendry, Highlands and Okee-
chobee counties (others in the
Florida Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative
Inc.-FHREDI) to form a central
Florida transportation group
similar to the Metropolitan
Planning Organizations
(MPOs) which operate in urban
areas and qualify for a share of
transportation dollars.
Fred Busack of Tallahassee-
based Pennington, Moore, Wil-
kinson, Bell & Dunbar, present-
ed the opportunity for Hardee
County to be part of a rural
group which would be large


enough to meet some of the
MPO requirements. None of the
counties individually has the
density of 1,000 people per
square mile to qualify as an
MPO.
While commissioners agreed
that they could not afford "not
to do something and needed a
seat at the table," they were
reluctant to spend $10,000 in a
tight fiscal year to partner with
other FHREDI counties to get
the ball rolling. Busack said all
the other counties but
Highlands had agreed and a
meeting is set with its commis-
sion shortly.
Commission Chairman
Bobby Ray Smith, the county's
liaison and member of FHRE-
DI, spoke in favor of it. FHRE-
DI has made completion of
four-laning of U.S. 17 its top
priority. SR 64 is next, then
Interstate 80 and SR 29, said
Smith.
"It's our turn," said Com-
missioner Dale Johnson of the
recent U.S. 17 motto adopted.
He added, "If we don't, we'll be
dead in the water. Four-laning
of U.S. 17 is a must for the
county to survive."
Commissioner Minor Bryant
made a motion to approve "if
all six counties agree." The cur-
rent FHREDI transportation
agreements will be a stepping
stone to forming the new trans-
portation group.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
approved a resolution to
refinance the Wauchula Hills
Wastewater/Water plant utility
loan of $1.425 million through
the Florida Association of
Counties (FAC) at an average


six-month rate of 3.7 percent.
noted that its November
meetings will be on the 1st and
29th. The meeting of the 15th
was changed to the 29th
because of the FAC legislative
conference Nov. 13-16.
discussed possible names
for appointment to the Eco-
nomic Development Authority
and Plarfning and Zoning Board
as terms of some members will
expire at the end of the year.
They may be re-appointed
and/or replaced.
Members of the Economic
Development Authority (of
which seven are also on the
Industrial Development Autho-
rity) are Mike Manley, Rick
Justice, Marcus Shackelford,
Tomas Macias, Lavon Cobb,
Jama Abbott, Dana English,
Nancy Craft, Teresa Crawford,
John Barlow, Oralia Flores,
Keith Davis and Joe Albritton.
Members of the Planning and
Zoning Board are James
Barncord, Don Chancey, Roger
Conley, Charles Nicholson,
Oscar Ortiz, Carl Saunders,
Vida Tomlinson, Tommie Un-
derwood and Max Ullrich.
approved a proclamation
of Oct. 15-19 as Medical
Assistants Recognition Week,
acknowledging the contribu-
tions of a variety of multi-
skilled allied health profession-
als.
And, in other recent meet-
ings, the commission:
approved an amended
agreement with Advanced Data
Processing Inc. for ambulance
billings through September
2008.
approved the 2008 meet-
ing and holiday schedules.

Golfers Finish At Districts Fish Bite


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wildcat golfers just could not
keep up with the half dozen
West Coast private schools in
their district.
The Hardee boys placed sev-
enth overall of the 10 teams at
the Class 1A Region 6, District
16 competition last week at The
Bluffs, the DeSoto home
course.
In the 18-hole district meet,
junior Ben Krause was the low
man for the Wildcats with a 78.
Senior Kaleb Saunders shot 80,
Brek McClenithan 84, James
Olliff 87 and Kyle Cobb 92.
The trio of seniors, Saunders,
Olliff and Cobb "now graduate
to bigger and better things. It


was a pleasure coaching them
for four years," said Wildcat
mentor George Heine. "I al-
ways hate to see the seniors go,
since they were such an enjoy-
able group to be around," Heine
added.
Krause, McClenithan and
Crews, all juniors, will be the
leaders next season, along with
freshman Taylor Barlow, who
improved tremendously during
the season.
"We had a very successful
regular season with a 15-5 re-
cord. Kaleb set a new school re-
cord with a 31 and averaged
36.1 for the season. We also
missed tying a school team re-
cord by one stroke. Ben Krause
averaged 39.8. The rest were in


the low to mid-40s," comment-
ed Heine.
"I truly believed I would have
had one or two advance to re-
gional competition but the com-
petition is very difficult in our
district. We have six private
schools in our district, which
makes it very difficult," he con-
. cluded.
Hardee girls had a similar
fate, with freshman Kara Norris
having the best outing of the
group at district competition.
Seniors Ciarra Chancey and
Nicole Bromley will leave their
ranks, but Norris, soph Macey
Reas, and freshmen Emily
Williams and Lauren Moore are
expected back to anchor next
year's squad.

Junior
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wildcat junior Matt George
continues to haul them in.
George, who is president of
the Lakeland Jr. Hawg Hunters,
picked up first- and second-
place points in a pair of recent
fishing tournaments.
Hawg is a slang term for a
huge bass.
And that's what Matt George
and his dad, Steve George,
combined for in winning the
Bass Anglers of Hardee County
tourney at Crooked Lake on
Oct. 14. The duo finished with
10.15 pounds. The younger
George netted the biggest bass
at 4.36 pounds.
Second place in that tourna-
ment went to Tim Cowarts and
Jack Lambert with a total of
5.21 pounds. Kevin White Jr.
and Kevin White Sr. placed
third with a catch of 4.15
pounds.
Matt George and classmate
Michael Dixon are both mem-
bers of both fishing clubs.
George also participated in
the Jr. Hawg Hunters tourna-
ment on Lake Alfred on Oct.
13. Hunter Wadley bested him
with the biggest bass at 3.10
and largest total of 5.10 pounds.
George came in second with
4.11 pounds while Curtis Edie
had 3.40 pounds.

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.

Let them know where you stand on risk-taking and its consequences.
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.
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.

Everyone Wins.

Sports Sense
& Nonsense
By Joan Seaman


Our hearts go out to the family of Danielle "Angel" Arguelles
in the loss of their wife and mother unexpectedly last Friday morn-
ing. She had helped Youth Football's Junior Peewee cheerleading
coaches Amanda Justus and Ashleigh Semple lead their cheerlead-
ers to a win at the district competition just the previous Saturday.
She leaves husband Gabriel and three children, ages 8, 5 and 4.
To help the young family, the Hardee League will hold a
pulled pork barbecue for $5 a plate at the YMCA parking lot today
(Thursday) at 6 p.m. All help and donations for the family are wel-
come. For more information, call Donna Porter at 781-4130.

On another note for Youth Football. Three of the cheerleading
teams won their divisions at the' district competition and will
advance to regionals in late November. The Junior Peewees
(Arguelles' team), Peewees and Midgets took first place and go on
in their competition.

Congratulations are in order also for HHS soph Josh Rickett
and his swim teammates. He was the only district winner for more
than a dozen boys and girls who will advance to regionals in
Orlando on Saturday.
Late word is that both the boys 200 medley and 400 freestyle
relay teams had qualifying times. They were not in the top four but
among the best other times in the region in last weekend's district
meet. In the preliminaries and finals, swimmers in the 200 medley
were Tyler Robertson, Joe Porter, Rickett and Dylan Justice. In the
400 relay, Kyle Bodeck, Jake Willis, Dusty Spears and Lee Cortez
swam the prelims and Justice, Chris Reid, Rickett and Robertson
were in the finals.

In football, Hardee picked up an important district victory on
Friday in a come-from-behind 42-7 win over Braden River. The
'Cats are at Cape Coral this weekend, sharpening skills for the
annual rivalry against DeSoto on Nov. 2.
At the last state poll, the Wildcats and Bulldogs were tied for
ninth place. Hardee is 6-1 and DeSoto 6-0, but more importantly,
DeSoto is 3-0 in the district and Hardee is 2-1. It's a must-win
game for Hardee in order to be district champs and host playoff
games. A full stadium could cheer the 'Cats to the championship.

JV football had a bye last week, but has its season finale
tonight (Thursday) at home against Okeechobee. Teammate
Jonathan Kelly is finally home from the hospital and hopes to
attend at least some of the game. He is getting stronger every day
and regaining some of the 22 pounds he lost during his illness.
Hopefully, the junior Wildcats will give him a victory to close out
their season.

Cross country is preparing for district competition next week.
Expect seniors Gilbert Gutierrez and Pete Solis and junior Edith
Leon to do well at districts, even though there are a baker's dozen
of teams to challenge them. The 13 opponents hail from as close as
Avon Park and far as St. Petersburg.

Hardee golfers bowed out at district competition at DeSoto last
week. With a half dozen "golf schools," private schools on the west
coast in the district, it is awfully hard for Hardee to compete effec-
tively, no matter how well the players do. It seems it would be bet-
ter to place those six schools in a different category than the public
schools.

Girls volleyball began district competition in Sebring early
this week. Results were not available at press time. You can be sure
seniors Marissa Hall, Amber Steedley and Megan White'will give
it their best shot in their last efforts.
The team will sponsor an enchilada dinner before the DeSoto


game. From 4:30 to 7 p.m., it's eat-in or take-out at the high school
cafeteria. The $6 meal includes enchiladas, pinto beans, rice and
salad. For tickets, see any player or coach Leupold.

Don't look now, but practice is under way for winter sports. At
the junior, high, there is "open gym" today and tomorrow for bas-
ketball.
Girls soccer, under coach Gilbert Vasquez, starts. its season
Nov. 2 at Lakeland and boys soccer, under Ron Kline, opens Nov.
6 at Lake Placid. All of the early matches are on the roadl until
Wildcat Stadium is free for.their use.
Girls basketball practice has begun. They play in a pre-season
tournament in Sebring on Nov. 6 and 8. The coaches are Don Gray
and Ken Leupold.
Boys basketball is also in practice and start a little later in
November. Of course, they will be missing some of the football
players. Coaches are Vance Dickey and Travis Bone.
No word yet on when girls weightlifting will begin. Some are
still in fall sports.

Also about to begin is youth baseball and softball.
Registrations continue today (Thursday) from 5 to 7 p.m., tomor-
row from 4 to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. Prospective
players and their parents should go to George Heine Jr. complex off
South Florida Avenue behind Farr Field.
This year there is a new division, Dixie girls machine pitch
softball for ages 6-8. The 5-year-olds will still be able to play Tee-
Ball. Registration is for T-Ball, AA (machine pitch) and AAA
(Minors). Cost is $50, which includes the uniform. Parents must
bring a birth certificate to prove the child's age and qualification
for each division.
These teams will begin their seasons on Jan. 12.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call The Herald-Advocate (773-3255) or e-mail
me at my new address, news.heraldadvocate@embarqmail.com
with news for this biweekly column. News will be included as soon
as time and space allows.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION (FDEP)
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The FDEP gives notice of its intent to issue a permit (No. FLA290980) to the Hardee County Board of County
Commissioners, for a Type II domestic wastewater facility. The facility is located at 325 State Road 62, Bowling
Green, FL 33834, in Hardee County. The Permit is to operate a 0.120 mgd annual average daily flow (AADF)
wastewater plant and to modify the existing facility to a 0.360 mgd AADF domestic wastewater treatment plant.
Effluent will continue to be discharged to an existing 0.36 mgd AADF Part VII industrial reuse system.

The FDEP will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under sections F.S.120.569 & 120.57 before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the FDEP's proposed permitting decision may petition
for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under F.S.120.569 & 120.57. The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the FDEP at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt of
this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under F.S.120.60(3)
must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs
first.

Under F.S.120.60(3), however, any person who has asked the FDEP for notice of agency action may file a
petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to -request an administrative determination (hearing) under F.S.120.569 & 120.57. Any
subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with F.A.C. 28-106.205.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the FDEP's action is based must contain the following
information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the FDEP permit identification number and
the county in which the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the FDEP action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the FDEP action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the FDEP action;
(f) A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the FDEP
action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the
FDEP to take.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which FDEP's action is based shall state that no such
facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by F.A.C. 28-
106.301.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the FDEP's final action may he different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the FDEP have the right to petition to become a
party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

Mediation under F.S.120.573 is not available for this proceeding.

The application is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.,
Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the FDEP Southwest District Office, 13051 North Telecom
Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637-0926. 10:25C

Tony Moreno:



All (n A Day's Work


By GAYLE 'MISS G' KNIGHT
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Hardee Junior High School eighth
grader Tony Moreno is one of the first
students on campus each morning and
one of the last to leave at the end of a
hectic day. He believes in the impor-
tance of hard work and the value of set-
ting a good example for others.
Tony, 14, arrives at 7:30, well before
the first bell rings. He heads to the
media center to prepare the televised
morning announcements. Following
that he helps man -the school store,
where he manages sales and handles
money received.
Off to class.
Tony, an honor-roll student, is taking
a full academic load including advanced
algebra. His studies are important
because he plans to become a lawyer
after graduation from Hardee Senior
High School and Florida State
University.
After all the daily academic activities,
Tony can be found each afternoon at
football practice.
As a two-year ZsS
starter for the '-/ L.on Target
HJHS Wildcats,
he spends his
afternoons from
4 to 6 giving his best efforts as first-
string fullback and first-string line-
backer. He also plays on special teams
for the Wildcats.
"Football is great, and I don't mind all
the hard work it takes to be a winner,"
Tony says. This past summer he lifted
weights and fast jogged several miles at
least three days a week to get in shape.
One of his goals is to play football at the
high-school level.
When practice is over Tony devotes
his time to homework. He usually
spends from 6 to 9 o'clock completing
his schoolwork and getting ready for his
next busy day.
Away from the classroom and playing
field, Tony contributes much to the
junior high. He was chosen by faculty
members, including sponsor Kerry
Terrell, to be president of the Junior
High National HonoP Society. He was
nervous being interviewed, but
expressed his wish to make HJHS better
by creating more student involvement
through fun learning activities.


Terrell comments that Tony possesses
outstanding leadership qualities, and he
does not hesitate to accept any responsi-
bilities. "He is an awesome kid who is
friendly, outgoing and well-liked by
both teachers and peers," she says.
In addition to his Honor Society
duties, Tony is one of only two students
who is a member of the Student
Advisory Committee, which meets
every Monday. The committee is com-
posed of teachers, parents and business
leaders who share ideas on how to
improve the school. They also hold dis-
cussions on how to spend money wisely
in order to benefit all students.
As a member of the Principal's
Cabinet, Tony has an opportunity to add
a student's perspective to school-related
issues. According to Principal Doug
Herron, "Tony is a serious young man
who works well with others and has cer-
tainly earned everyone's respect. He is a
terrific young man!"
Away from school Tony is an active
member of Lake Dale Baptist Church
and is often found in the nursery caring
for the "little kids." He also plans to be
involved in next year's Relay for Life
activities.
Assistant Principal Meredith
Durastanti sums up Tony Moreno in this
way: "Tony is just an all-around great
kid!"
Keep up the good work, Tony.

Over The Fence
By Dr. Ross A. Hendry


NOT THE SIZE OF THE DOG IN THE FIGHT
I have always enjoyed observing animals, especially when
they don't know I'm there.
Those are the times when we can get a flash shot of unusual
animal behaviors.
It happened last week when my wife and I went out to dinner
one evening. Zeus had been a the clinic all day, but because he does
so well in the car he went with us and stayed on his bed in the car
while he ate.
We got home a little after 9 o'clock and as I pulled in the dri-
veway, there is a little elbow turn that goes down a grass lane to my
house. We were shocked at what we saw because our little Italian
Greyhounds, which are about 13 and 17 pounds respectively, had a
300-pound boar hog bayed up.
We sat there watching the whole scene, and it was funny when
you think about it, because Italian Greyhounds are really fast. They
run almost everything in the pasture, but nothing ever catches
them. The most amazing thing was the boar hog didn't run off. He
was out there spinning around like there was four or five cur dogs
after him.
We had put Zeus out at the road and let him run home, like we
always do, so he can get some exercise, because some days he just
sits around the clinic all day.
When Zeus, the little mutt I picked up at the pound one time,
got to the hog he threw all of his 16 pounds into the fracas and
caught the hog by the'hind leg. About that time l realized one of the
lightweight attackers was about to get hurt, so I got out and broke
the thing off and the boar hog ran off.
It is just another one of those things we don't expect, like com-
ing home to find a 300-pound black, boar hog in the driveway. It is
even more amazing to see two spindly-legged Italian Greyhounds
having it bayed up.
I wouldn't recommend Italian Greyhounds for my hog hunting
friends, but I can tell you this, there will never be a hog that will
outrun them.
As a country vet for many years I have done a lot of driving,
especially when I was in a large animal practice. Back then I would
drive more that 60,000 miles every year, all over South Florida.
One time I watched some unusual animal behavior was when
I was headed east on Route 66. When I got to Charlie Creek, I
noticed a Brahman yearling, about 400 or 500 pounds. It was stand-
ing there alone in the pasture, just frozen, like a bird dog pointing
a quail.
I went on by and realized it was so abnormal for one to be that
still. I came back to park and watch him. He was just motionless,
staring across the creek at something.
I looked across the road and realized there was a deer laying at
the base of the a tree chewing his cud. The deer might have been
moving around and just laid down, but the yearling was mesmer-
ized by it.
I watched them for about 10 minutes and the deer didn't move
and neither did the yearling. He was just locked in on that deer
It is unusual for a Brahman yearling to be out there alone, but
even more unusual for it to be so still. Brahmans, and especially
Brahman yearlings, would normally take off like greased lightning
in any direction at the sight of a car or anything else that moved.
Observing that Brahman yearling watch a deer, and last week
watching my little dogs tackle a 300-pound boar hog are heart-
warming experiences.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Daily, scattered thunderstorms persisted throughout the week
of Oct. 15 21. Rainfall varied from traces at Tampa to over four-
teen inches at Pensacola. Several areas across the extreme eastern
Panhandle received between twelve to sixteen inches of rainfall for
the week. Nearly eight inches of rainfall fell at West Palm Beach,
while Jay received over six inches. Areas receiving over four inch-
es of rain included Marianna and Quincy with Tallahassee record-
ing over three inches. Other lc, t'ties received over one to two
inches of rainfall. Daytime highs were mostly in the 80s with some,
areas receiving temperatures in the 90s at least one day. Pleasant'
evening lows were in the 60s and 70s with a few stations recording
at least one low in the 50s.
FIELD CROPS
Some tornadoes along with torrential rains were reported in
Santa Rosa and Escambia counties. The weather negatively
impacted some cotton, but it is too early to predict how much dam-
age was sustained. Recent rains helped loosen hardened soils
allowing some growers to dig peanuts in Panhandle and northern
Peninsula areas. In Jefferson County, heavy rains delayed some
peanut digging and potentially damaged the cotton crop slightly. In
Washington County, peanut and cotton harvesting was underway.
Hay supplies continued to remain very short in the Panhandle
areas. Peanut condition was rated 25 percent poor, 32 percent fair,
37 percent good, and 6 percent excellent. Moisture supplies across
the State were mostly short to adequate with some spots of surplus
supplies. ,

VEGETABLES
Rains interrupted some field work across the State. Rains and
wet fields delayed field activities around the Quincy area with
some light harvesting underway. Tomato harvesting in central
Peninsula localities was expected to begin this week. The surge of
white fly population had an severely adverse effect on all fall veg-
etable crops in Washington County. Okra harvesting continued in
Dade County. Tomato, corn, and snap bean growers were almost
finished preparing fields for plantings in Dade County. Planting of
cabbage and broccoli continues in St. Johns County. Producers
marketed light supplies of cucumbers and squash in central and
southern Peninsula areas. Harvesting of snap beans, eggplant, bell
peppers was expected to begin late next week across northern
to southern Peninsula localities.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture condition was
very poor to excellent with most in fair condition. Recent rain in
many locations benefited pastures, but stock pond water levels are
low. Cattle condition was fair to good. In central areas, pasture con-
dition was poor to excellent with most in fair condition. Cattle con-




SFCC Career Center

Readies For Job Fair


South F10rida Community
College is gearing up for its
annual Fall 2007 Employment
Fair on Nov. 1 at the Highlands
Campus, but this is just one of
the services it offers year-round
to businesses, trying to recruit
quality staff.
Located in Room 250, Build-
ing B, on the main campus and
at SFCC sites in Bowling
Green, Arcadia and Lake
Placid, the SFCC Career Center
posts open positions for compa-
nies of any size, accepts online
job applications, and provides
space for conducting inter-
views, orientation and training.
"In any given week, we are
working with a nucleus of 50
employers," said Paul Fox,
director of the SFCC Career
Center. "Our database continu-
ally builds on the more than
5,000 employers we are work-
ing with."
Over the summer, the SFCC
Career Center put its resources
and staff to the test with the
opening of The Shops of Shelby


Corner in Sebring. By late
September, eight of the out-of-
county retailers, including Pet-
co, Marshall's and Circuit City,
had recruited and hired employ-
ees for their new stores through
the SFCC Career Center.
"We helped these companies
with hundreds of job openings"
ranging from cashiers to sales-
people to managers, Fox said.
That is just one example of
the work the Career Center
does.
In addition to the fall job fair,
businesses can promote their
employment needs by becom-
ing a "featured employer."
Once a month, a different fea-
tured employer sets up a table at
the Highlands Campus and dis-
cusses its positions and hiring
requirements with SFCC stu-
dents and others.
The SFCC Career Center is
open 8 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday,,
Thursday and Friday, and 8
a.m.-7 p.m., Tuesday and
Wednesday. For information,
call 784-7410.


edition was mostly good. In the southwest areas, pasture was very
poor to excellent with most in good condition. Hot, dry conditions
have lowered water levels in canals and ponds. Summer rainfall
has not been enough for adequate forage growth going into the fall
season. Extended drought still has pasture and forage conditions in
poor condition. Statewide, cattle condition was very poor to excel-
lent with most in good condition.

CITRUS
Showers and thunderstorms the latter half of the week brought
various amounts of rainfall to citrus producing areas. The west and
east coast recorded the most rainfall at one and a half inches. Other
areas had less than an inch: 'Localized areas may have received
more rain due to the nature of the storms. Daily highs were above
average reaching the low to mid-90s at least one day in all areas.


Trees were generally in good condition in well-cared-for groves.
Fruit sets were above average. Maturity levels were lagging behind
last year and acids were being reported as high. The quality of fruit
was reported good in most areas. Some increased growth has
caused splitting, primarily in later variety fruit. Limited grove
activity includes fertilizing, mowing, and cleaning groves in prepa-
ration for harvest. The battle against citrus greening is a priority for
citrus growers. Various methods were being used for scouting and
removal of infected trees. Several packinghouses have opened and
began running fruit. Two more packinghouses intend to open by the
beginning of November. Fruit movement is limited with only a
couple processing plants opened at this time. Harvested varieties
include Fallglo tangerines, early, Ambersweet and Navel oranges,
grapefruit, and tangelos.

An old lady had her picture taken
for the first time. When the proofs
arrived, she asked the ,photogra-
pher, "Is this me?"
"Yes," he answered.
"It's humblin', ain't it!" she
remarked.
The Living Bible says, "No one
anywhere has kept on doing what
is right; not one." As we see
ourselves in that group, we must
confess like the lady, "It's
humblin'!"
But while we're sinners, God
can make us saints.
Our faith in God saves us from
sin: Our obedience to God carves
our character. Our partnership with
God strengthens our steps. Our
expectation of God enhances our
hopes.

Robertson won the 200 free

A kind word is like a spring
day.


For all the years I spent in Hardee County, the one thing I
never learned how to do well was ride a horse. I guess I was sort of
a city boy who grew up in the country.
Sure, I learned how to throw watermelons, catch my own bait,
make. my own pole, catch my own fish and clean them and eat
them. I learned how to shoot a shotgun, pretty darn good I might
add for all those potential boys who might want to court my daugh-
ter in a few years. I learned how to drive a tractor, turn on a pump
in an orange grove, lay irrigation, and a whole bunch of other
things you probably wouldn't believe.
Recently I won second place in a turkey calling contest. They
gave me $250 for gobbling. If I had known all these years they
were giving out money for acting the fool, I would have done
retired and bought my Dad his dream boat, "a Boston Whaler,"
years ago.
Whether it was because I was more a farm boy or a river rat, I
don't know, I just never spent any time on horseback.,
As a matter of fact, I only remember getting on a horse two
times, both as a teenager. The first time, the horse thought it had
just heard the horn signaling the start of the Kentucky Derby. The
second, I was on a horse that was said to be 15 years old and on her
last legs. Shoot, that horse outran every car on 1-4 in Lakeland that
day! Not to mention I was on a date, with a girl I never saw again,
guess she wanted a real cowboy.
A real cowboy I'm not. I don't even pretend to be one. I'm not
even an animal lover. I really have no understanding of horses
whatsoever. That's where my story begins.
My daughter, Katherine, will be 6 in a few days. My wife and
I had the bright idea of giving her horse lessons after school. We
thought, this. will be something fun for her, give her some good
lessons on responsibility and teach her how to focus on something
positive.
Well, let's just say it: Oh, no! What have we done!
My daughter is infatuated with horses. She absolutely loves
horses. She has found her thing. She has learned more in just a few
lessons than I've been able to learn in a lifetime. She brushes her
horse, cleans its hooves, puts its bridle on, saddles her own horse,
everything.
Needless to say, I am a proud daddy, but I'm also amazed. She
is so little and the horse is so big. She has her choice of horses to
ride, too. Just ask her: Champ, Booger, Piglet, Terry and, just this
week a couple new ones, Blue and another I can't remember, and
most likely will get an eyeroll when I admit I don't know.
So what's the big deal? It seems there is a giant conspiracy
against me.
My daughter went on her first trail ride just last week and, of
course, loved every second of it. Then I made the mistake of letting
Mommy go to horse-riding lessons. The instructor told Mommy
that Katherine said how much her Dad loves riding horses, and that
it would be OK if I went on the next trail ride.
When Mommy told Daddy this he laughed, thinking it was a
joke only later to figure out that this may soon become a reality.
So, this brings me here to cry out for help.
Can anyone come up with a rare horse allergy that I can con-
tract so that all I can do is watch people ride horses? I mean, seri-
ously, there has to be something like that out there, right?
OK, I know. I have heard all you experts before: Just be
relaxed. Don't kick the horse. Blah-blah-blah!
Listen, I have been on two horses, each one ran faster than my


Generosity gives assis-
tance, rather than advice.

'99 Ford and both tried to kill me.
Katherine is taking English riding lessons, which presents
another issue. These horses love to jump. They love to run and
jump. That's all Katherine talks about, getting good enough to
jump.
Sorry, I almost fainted.
The other issue is money. Somebody slap me next time I try to
sign my kid up for something extra expensive. There's special
boots, special pants, helmets, etc., etc. I'm not even talking about
owning a piece of land with a barn and a horse, but I might be.,
atherine's instructor didn't show one rainy day, and I had to tell
Katherine no riding today. After much grief, she looked at me and
said, "Daddy, if I had my own horse, I could ride it whenever I
wanted." I actually thought about going and selling my bass boat
right then. (It was previously owned by Tiger Woods.)
For her birthday party she got about a million plastic horses
and a stable and fences and riders to play with. She has pictures of
herself and horses all over her dresser. She had a pony at her party
for everyone to ride, which she did about 15 times.
She has got it bad.
We've tried to convince her she is not getting a horse this year,
and she has let us know when she is in high school she's buying a
white horse with brown spots.
Like I always say, look on the bright side, maybe Daddy will
finally learn how to ride.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well Football Fans, this season has proved to be an interesting
one to say the least. The upsets have shown how much parity there
is in college football. The old saying on any given Saturday is
giving way to on any given day with college football on sever-
al nights a week now. 2007 should prove the need for a play-off
system. How will the BCS pick which teams deserve to play'for the
National Championship this year? The weekly free-for-all in the
Top 10 changes so rapidly it is hard to say who will be first and sec-
ond in December.
A couple former Hardee Wildcats are having banner years.
with colleges in South Carolina and West Virginia. Brian Kemp has
led the Wofford Terriers to a 6-1 start including 3-0 in the Southern
Conference. The Terriers, defeated Appalachian State, the two time
defending 1-AA National Champion and Michigan slayers. Kemp
has 2 interceptions on the year. One sealed the victory over
Georgetown in the opener this season. Jermain King is making his
mark at West Virginia State as a freshman. The Yellow Jackets are
5-1 in the WVIAC. King had 78 yards on 6 receptions with two
touchdown catches against Seton Hall in the homecoming game.
He previously had 6 catches for 66 yards against Fairmont State in
another victory for the Yellow Jackets located near Charleston, W..
Va.

DON'T JUST STAND THERE!
PRAY

October 31st is Halloween, and many
Christians say we don't participate in
Halloween because it's the devil's day, but the
last time I checked Psalms 118:24 says "This is
the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and
be glad in it." So who gave the devil a day of
his own anyway? I challenge every Christian,
regardless of denomination, to meet me (your
brother and sister in the Lord) on Main Street
Wauchula on Halloween night at 6pm to pray
for Hardee County and our City. I know it's
Wednesday and most churches have Bible
study, so bring your Bible study group to pray
for this city. Do you want change and revival in
America? Let's start with one city at a time.
Let's start here, let's stand in one place, with
one mind and one accord..........Let's Pray. 2nd
Chronicles 7:14.."If my people who are called
by my name will humble themselves, and pray
and seek my face, and turn from their wicked
ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will
forgive their sins and heal their land." :25p

To Your Health!
By Erin E. Hess
Hardee County Health Department


HEALTHY HALLOWEEN!
Halloween candy often starts rolling in days and weeks before
the actual big day of trick-or- treating. By the end, your household
is probably full of high-sugar candy.
Halloween brings out the kid in all of us. Getting dressed up in
a costume, parading around the neighborhood, going to parties:
What's not to love? Treats are part of the fun, but they don't have
to be bad and moderation is the key.
As you shop for the treats you will offer this year, think about
some healthier options.
Cheese-and-cracker packages, cheese sticks, fresh fruit such as
apples, bananas or oranges, 100% juice boxes, small packs of
peanuts or raisins, instant cocoa mix packages, and fruit or apple-
sauce cups are all great options.
You can also consider non-food items such as stickers, bal-
loons, pencils, erasers, crayons, rubber spiders or worms, plastic
rings, bracelets or hair accessories, toothbrushes or even money.
While some items are appropriate for all ages, small items need to
be limited to kids over age 3 to eliminate chocking hazards for
young children.
If you can't seem to break away from the tradition of giving:
candy, try to choose options like sugar-free gum; fat-free candy like
'fruit snacks/gummies, Smarties, Twizzlers or Skittles; or lower-fat
chocolate like York Peppermint Patties, 3Musketeers or Junior
Mints. You can also give out the smallest size of candy, Hershey
Miniatures for example.
For parents taking children trick-or-treating, there are things
you can do as well to ensure a healthy Halloween. Make sure chil-
dren eat a good meal or at least a snack before going out so they
won't be as tempted to dig into their bag of goodies along the way.
It is always better to eat the candy gathered over several days as a
substitute for dessert, or a few pieces along with a healthy snack.
Children can also learn the value of sharing. Help children rec-
ognize that with all the candy they have collected, they could cheer
someone up by giving some to a relative or friend. Children can
make small goodie bags and write a note to the person they are
sharing with. Children can also be encouraged to donate the candy
to a local shelter, food pantry or charity.
Parents can consider trading all or most of the candy for a
much-wanted toy or game. You may choose to let your child keep
a certain amount of his favorite candy, but trade the majority. Talk
to your child ahead of time if you are planning on making a trade.
You can pick the toy or game out together beforehand, and hold it
until the candy is collected and the trade is completed.
Whichever option works for you and your family, have a
healthy Halloween!

The universe is simmering down, like a giant stew left to
cook for four billion years. Sooner or later we won't be
able to tell the carrots from the onions.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF PERMIT REVISION

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of a permit revision [permit No
FL0040177; PA File No. FL0040177-020-lW1S/RA] for.CF Industries, Inc., for Hardee
Phosphate Complex II South Pasture Mine (Post Office Box 1549, Wauchula, Hardee
County, Florida 33873-1549),which discharges excess process wastewater and stormwa-
ter via Outfalls D-004 and D-005. Outfall D-004 discharges excess process wastewater
and stormwater into Shirttail Branch, which flows into Payne Creek, then into the Peace
River. Outfall D;005 discharges excess process wastewater and stormwater into Doe
Branch, which flows into Payne Creek, then into the Peace River.

This permit revision only authorizes the construction and subsequent operation, after
receipt of Department approval of a new 358-acres sand/clay mix settling area (SCMA)
designated as E-6, located immediately east of existing SCMA E-5. The west dam wall of
E-6 is the east wall of E-5. Construction will include 11,655 lineal feet of earthen contain-
ment dams with a minimum crest elevation of 130 feet NGVD embankment at a maximum
water elevation of 125 feet NGVD. The proposed SCMA E-6 will receive sand/clay slurry
via a pressurized pipeline positioned along the perimeter embankments. Two decant
spillway structures, located near the middle of the north wall, will discharge clarified water
into the newly constructed below-grade return water ditch system, located along the north
wall of E-6, which will be connected to the existing return hydraulic ditch for SCMAs E-1.,
E-2, E-3, &4, and E-5.

The facility is located at 2220 Mine View Road, Bowling Green, in Hardee County, Florida,
and geographically at:

Latitude: 27033' 54" N Longitude: 81053'52" W

The subject site (SCMA E-6) is located southeast of the community of Fort Green Springs
in Hardee County, Florida within portions of Sections 34 & 35, Township 33S, Range 24E.
The Department will issue the permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing
is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all parties reach a
written agreement on mediation as an alternative remedy under section 120.573 before
the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a
hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for petitioning for a
hearing are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision of
the Department may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received) in the Department of Envirornnental Protection,
Office of General Counsel, Mail Station 35, 3900"Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida, 32399-3000. Petitions must be filed within fourteen days of publication of this pub-
lic notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first.
A petitioner must mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition (or a request for medi-
ation, as discussed below) within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding and partic-
ipate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the discretion of the pre-
siding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-5.207of the Florida
Administrative Code.

A petition must contain the following information:

(a),The name, address, and telephone number ofjeach petitioner; the Department per-
mit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is locat-
ed;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department
action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of
the Department action;
(f) A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or mod-
ification of the Department action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wants the Department to take.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the final action of the Department may be different from
the/position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the Department on the application have the right to
petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth
above. Any person may elect to pursue mediation by reaching a mediation agreement with
all parties to the proceeding (which includes the Department and any person who has filed
a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing) and by showing how the substantial interests
of each mediating party are affected by the action or proposed action of the Department.
The agreement must be filed in (received by) the Department of Environmental Protection,
Office of General Counsel, Mail Station 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-3000,by the same deadline as set forth above for the filing of a petition.

The agreement to mediate must include the following:

(a) The names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any persons who may attend the
mediation;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the mediator selected by the parties,
or a provision for selecting a mediator within a specified time;
(c) The agreed allocation of the costs and fees associated with the mediation;
(d) The agreement of the parties on the confidentiality of discussions and documents
introduced during mediation;

a hearing only in accordance with the requirements for such petitions set forth above, and

Wauchula Centennial Marks History, Makes History


By SANDY SCOTT
For The Herald-Advocate
In 1865, a young Teddy Roosevelt
watched President Abraham Lincoln's
funeral procession from an upstairs win-
dow of his grandfather's house in New
York City. From 1898 to 1900, the then-
40-year-old was governor of the state of
New York. And soon he became the
26th president of the United States,
holding that position from 1901 through
1909.
On Saturday, Oct. 13 of this year, a
very distinguished President Theodore
Roosevelt emerged from the rear of the
gazebo at Main Street Heritage Park in
Wauchula to address a formidable
crowd of well over 100 citizens, prais-
ing the community's rich history as it
celebrated its 100th anniversary of


becoming a city.
Well, at least a look-alike of the pop-
ular former Rough Rider graced the city
with his attendance and spoke words of
praise that kept a crowd of Wauchulans
young and old glued to the edges of
their seats as he spoke of the dedication
their forefathers had to mold the com-
munity into what it is today.
Roosevelt, of course, was president
on the day Wauchula officially became
a city, May 22, 1907. On that date, the
state of Florida granted a city charter to
the community of Wauchula.
His was only one of the many high-
lights that Main Street Wauchula Inc.
had in store for the strong turnout of res-
idents for this centennial celebration of
the town's existence. In all, more than
1,000 people attended the evening event


U,


I


The old First Baptist Church of Wauchula was built in 1909 and stood as a landmark
near the corner of U.S. 17 and Main Street. The historic structure with its ornate archi-
tecture is remembered here by Mr. and Mrs. Cliff Brinson.


marking the city's 100th year.
Between the hours of 4 and 10 p.m.,
Heritage Park was transformed into an
area that resembled an old-fashioned
Chautaugua. The focal point was the
gazebo, where entertainment consisted
of bluegrass music performed by the
Country Cousins, dancing by the
Manatee Cloggers and contemporary
music by Final Cut.
Children scurried around the well-
manicured lawn with freshly painted
flowers adorning their cheeks, compli-
ments of the Hardee Senior High School
Lionettes, as they made their way to the
rear of the grounds where inflatables
were set up to provide the fun and play
of a carnival atmosphere. Others took
their place at the end of the ever-con-
stant line of children and some
adults, too waiting to be helped into
the bucket of a city of Wauchula's lift
truck that would transport them high
into the air to view their town from a
point that many had never experienced
before.
A display provided by the Cracker
Trail Museum in Pioneer Park in Zolfo
Springs held many items that were rep-
resentative of Wauchula's early years.
Early yearbooks from the high school,
County Courthouse pictures, enlarged
photographs depicting the town's thor-
oughfares and even the official charter
were examined by the crowds through-
out the late afternoon hours. An
enlarged street grid, yellowed with age,
sto6d at one end of the museum's dis-
play, and copies of Margaret Stringer's
book, "Watch Wauchula Win," were
available for purchase, provided by the
library.
Wauchula has a rich heritage, and
what better way to remember it than by
the continuous slide show that projected
300 photographs on a 10-foot screen,
showing such.images as the early days
of Beeson's Drug Store, J.W. Earnest
Department Store, Carlton & Carlton
Bank and the Simmons Hotel. The 30-
minute slide show was available for
purchase to the public, with the pro-
ceeds going to Main Street Wauchula
Inc. for future projects for all of
Wauchula to enjoy.
Friends and neighbors joined one
another and chatted while sitting on the
numerous iron benches located around
the park. The festive mood reached
beyond that of the immediate era, as
members of Wauchula's City Commis-
sion joined in the celebration by dress-
ing in period attire.
Enlarged photographs of years gone
by were positioned around the park, and
many current citizens could 'be seen
posing next to one of those memorable


Wendell Turner stands with a photo of
the Royal Theater on Main Street. He
remembers sweeping the floor there in
bygone days. Turner's Wauchula roots go

he was born.

buildings. Buildings that were depicted
included such landmarks of their time as
the First Baptist Church completed in
1909, Wiener's Department Store which
once occupied the property where
Heritage Park now stands, and the
Royal Theatre once located across the
street from Wauchula State Bank.
Horse-drawn wagons carried children
on a ride around town, and a display of
antique cars provided entertainment all
through the evening. Owners were
proud to share their stories of the years
they had invested in restoring these
gems of the past, and the younger gen-
eration reveled in seeing the fuzzy dice
hanging from Earl Smith's pride of the
1950s.

As darkness came upon the festivities
of that Saturday evening, bulbs strung
on wires circled the park and the area
was illuminated as the citizens contin-
ued walking the grounds and talking to
their friends.
This was an evening that would be
remembered by the city of Wauchula for
a long time. A centennial marks history,
and makes history itself.
It was a time of celebration. It was a
time of reflection. It was a time that the
closely knit population gathered to
begin the next era. The era of a genera-
tion that will provide the continuation of
a community rich in history, rich in
honor.


COURTESY PHOTOS
Fuzzy dice and shiny chrome highlighted vehicles of the 1950's, such as the one shown
here with owner Earl Smith, and attracted many onlookers to the display of antique,
classic and muscle cars that lined Main Street during the Wauchula Centennial
Celebration.


City officials circa 2007 got into the history and spirit of the day by dressing in period
clothing. Shown with Cracker Trail Museum curator Sandy Scott, who provided hun-
dreds of photographs of the 100-year-old community, are City Manager Rick Giroux
(left) and Mayor David Royal.


Area residents filled Main Street Heritage Park on Saturday, Oct. 13, for the Wauchula
Centennial Celebration. History was present everywhere, and everyone was taken back
n time with framed photos and a slide-show presentation showing people and places

Is Fat the N
A recently published study
,raises an interesting question: Is
-fat the new normal? With
:roughly two-thirds of the
.American population over-
weight or obese, have our cul-
tural ideals of what we consider
"normal weight" changed?
The study, published in the
July issue of "Economic
Inquiry," looked at economic
and social factors affecting obe-
sity rates. One element
explored was the impact of
societal norms or standards.
According to the study's
authors, standards for accept-
able body weight relax as the
average weight of the popula-
tion increases; in turn, people's
weights continue to rise in
Response to the lessening of
social standards.
The public responses to the
issues raised in this study range
from support to outrage. While
,some have recognized the dan-
ger in "normalizing" unhealthy
weights, others are angered at
the insinuation that people are
.unable to differentiate between
:"average" and "healthy."
This discussion echoes the
misunderstanding that sur-
,rounded earlier research pub-
:lished in 2000. The latter study,
which ran in the journal
"Obesity Research," focused on
body-size acceptance. In the
:study, subjects were presented
with nine line drawings portray-
ing various body shapes that
:ranged from very thin to obese.
Participants were asked to iden-
tify those body sizes that
""looked okay" as well as the
:one they "liked best."
In the end, 86 percent of
.overweight study subjects and
:48 percent of obese subjects
',said their own shape fell within
,the "acceptable" range (it is
*:important to note that study
.subjects did not identify over-
'-weight and obese figures as
'healthy or desirable, but as
acceptable). Furthermore, 80
'percent of overweight subjects
.and 93 percent of obese sub-
jects identified their actual
,shape as different from the
-shape they would most like to

have.
Of course, the waters get
muddied a bit when we attempt
to differentiate "normal" weight
from "desirable" weight with-
out offending people. Although
weight is an extremely sensitive
subject, the separation between
normal and desirable has been
successfully defined in other
areas. For example, evaluation
of blood cholesterol was previ-
ously based on average levels.
After research showed that typ-
ical levels in the U.S. were
associated with increased heart
disease, a "healthy" blood cho-
lesterol level was identified and
differentiated from average
blood cholesterol.
Acknowledging that you're'
overweight is the first step in
recognizing the health risks
associated with obesity. A 2002
study, also published in
"Obesity Research," found that
self perceptions of overweight
were influenced by sex, race
and socioeconomic status. Ac-
cording to the study, Caucasian
females were most likely to
accurately identify themselves
as overweight, while black and
Hispanic men were least likely
to correctly assess their over-
weight status. I n
summary, the study noted that
only about half of all participat-
ing men correctly identified
their overweight status as com-
pared to more than three quar-
ters of the women. These find-
ings are consistent with other
research that suggests that fail-
ure to recognize you're over-
weight is more of a problem in
men.
Whether it is viewed as
acceptable or not, overweight
and obese are clearly becoming
the norm in America. This new
"normal" is simply not healthy.
In a culture that promotes
overeating, making life changes
to promote a healthier weight
can often seem overwhelming.
While we may not be able to
change the culture overnight,
each of us can take small steps
to ensure that our standard ref-
erence is also the healthiest ref-
erence.


The more educated you are, the less likely you are to

:dropouts smoke, compared with only 20 percent of
:Americans who have high school diplomas.


HEARTLAND PEDIATRICS
I "New Patients Welcome"


A diet rich in red meat,
refined grains and sweets is
once again raising eyebrows as
emerging research points to its
potential role as a promoter of
cancer. A study in the "Journal
of the American Medical Asso-
ciation (JAMA)" breaks new
ground by linking the typical
Western dietary pattern with
recurrence' of colon cancer.
The study, published in
August, involved roughly 1,000
patients with stage III colon
cancer treated with surgery and
adjuvant chemotherapy. The
patients were followed for an
average of five-and-a-half years
and asked to complete two
dietary questionnaires during
that time period. In the end,
those whose overall eating
habits most strongly resembled
a Western-style diet greater
consumption of red and
processed meats, refined grains,
French fries and desserts -,
were more than three times as
likely to face cancer recurrence
or death as those patients who


ate the least of these foods. This
association held true regardless
of differences in activity level,
weight status or other factors
that could distort the results.
Even those patients who ate a
moderate Western diet raised
their risk of cancer recurrence
or death.
Earlier research has found
similar results related to the
development of colon cancer in
previously healthy people. A
2003 study that followed more
than 75,000 women for over a
decade reported that subjects
had up to a 45 percent increased
risk of developing colon cancer
when they followed a Western
dietary pattern.
What's the connection? Some
scientists suggest that this style
of eating is linked with changes
in hormones such as insulin and
insulin-like growth factors.
Increased levels of these hor-
mones may promote cancer
development and decrease the
self-destruction of abnormal
cells. The authors of the recent

"JAMA" article hypothesize
that a Western diet may also
help create body conditions that
allow microscopic remnants of
the colon cancer to grow and
spread.
When the study examined a
'A high in vegetables, fruits,
whole grains and beans, the
results were quite different. In
fact, there was no significant
relationship between eating
more of these foods and cancer
recurrence or survival. Other
studies have shown that, indi-
vidually, vegetables, fruits,
whole grains, beans, poultry
and fish, may be associated
with possible protection from
initial development of colon
cancer. But they too have failed
to shown that the pattern "as a
whole" is related to colon can-
cer incidence.
Although 'researchers failed
to show that following a health-
ier diet decreases colon cancer
recurrence, the lack of associa-
tion may be attributed to genet-
ics. Many of the healthy com-


I-*


pounds we get from a diet rich
in fruits and vegetables work in
pathways that are affected by
our genes. It is possible that a
diet loaded with these healthful
foods offers more benefit for
some people than for others,
ahd that grouping everyone
together obscures the effect.
Also note that this eating pat-
tern could still offer protection
by making calorie and weight
control easier; research now
shows a link between excess
body fat and cancer.
This study of colon cancer
survival does more than tell us
about the influence of dietary
choices. It also adds to the big-
ger picture clarifying whether
lifestyle can influence survival
after cancer treatment. It is
important to note that the
JAMA study does not prove
that a Western dietary pattern
causes recurrence of colon can-
cer, only that it is associated
with an increased risk. Avoiding
the pattern does, however, seem
like a good place to start.

Dear Editor:
We are losing our WWII vet-

are trying to locate them to save
their deeds for history while
there is still time. We wish to
connect them with the military
buddies with our reunions and
today's paratroopers.

Division in the world. Today
they are serving America with
units in Iraq and Afghanistan
fighting for our country's free-
doms.
We have 100 chapters across
America, 30,000 active mem-
bers. Our chapters hold regular
meetings, picnics, dinner-
dances, many mini-reunions,
march in local parades and
school programs about WWII.
