Play


Opens


Friday

By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
Costumes are being fitted,
lights checked and curtains
drawn in final preparation for
the premiere of the Hardee
County Players' latest perfor-
mance.
The Players will present the
musical whodunit "Something's
Afoot" this weekend and next,
with both evening and after-
noon showtimes.
According to Bob Klobuchar,
treasurer of the Players, "Some-
thing's Afoot" is a musical
spoof that takes a satirical jab at
the Agatha Christie "whodunit"
murder mysteries.
The story is about 10 people
who are stranded in an isolated
English country estate during a
raging thunderstorm. One by
one they are killed in mysteri-
ous, yet hilarious, ways,
Klobuchar describes. They all
try to uncover the unknown
murderer's identity.
The solution of the puzzle is
complicated by rising floodwa-
ters, power failures and suspi-
cious behaviors carefully noted
by Miss Tweed, an elderly ama-
teur detective.
Directing the play will be
Dan Graham, bi-county director
for cast members from both
Desoto and Hardee counties.
Carol Myer will be the piano
accompanist.
The cast includes veteran
actors John Schudel, Doug
Mann II, Melody ..Klobuchar,
Kayton Nedza and Styles
Starratt. And joining the cast of
"Something's Afoot" are new-
comers Ashleigh Semple,
Aislynn Holt, Reson Holt Jr.,
Casey Shanaver and Mike
Wynn.
The play will run for two
weekends at the Historic Wau-
chula City Hall Auditorium at
225 E. Main St.
"Something's Afoot" will
begin tomorrow (Friday) and
then end the following weekend
on Sunday, Nov. 18. The show-

add to the cost of building a
home in Hardee County.
At last week's public hearing,
the Hardee County Commission
adopted school impact fees at


DOWN, NOT OUT


50 percent of the recommended
levels.
After an hour's discussion
and heated comments from a
handful of the dozen builders


present, the commission went
ahead and set school impact
fees at $2,494.50 for a single-
family residence, $2,488 for a
mobile home and $1,366.50 per


unit of a multi-family resi-
dence.
School impact fees are not
assessed on retail, commercial
or industrial construction,
which will not add students to
the county's eight current
schools nor create a demand for
more schools.
Impact fees are just what they
say, making those building new
homes responsible for the
impacts or effects of new con-
struction. Services such as
roads, fire and rescue protection
services, law enforcement,
parks and recreation, jail,
library, general government and
schools cost money to provide.
State Senate Bill 360 requires
concurrency, meaning the
cities, county and schools must
work together on setting impact
fees, each one having a growth
management element in its
Comprehensive Land Use Plan,
and each one agreeing to the
others' plans. It makes the


county responsible to set school
impact fees in cooperation with
the Hardee County School
Board.
If the county does not set fees
and exercise concurrency, it
will lose eligibility for a variety
of state funds.
The school impact fees, like
the other county impact fees,
become effective Jan. 1.
"The bottom line is someone
has to pay for growth. It's either
ad valorem (property) taxes on
current homeowners or impact
fees on growth. There are no
alternatives," explained newly
selected Commission Chairman
Dale Johnson.
Impact fees are set aside in
special funds and can only be
used for new equipment or
facilities required by growth.
In the case of schools, this
means new buses to transport
additional students, not replace-
ment vehicles or maintenance.

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
At least one weapon, shouted
obscenities, blaring music and
an unwieldy crowd brought city
police to the aid of a fast-food
restaurant Friday night after the
game.
Wauchula Police Chief
William Beattie said officers
were called to the McDonald's
at 907 U.S. 17 S. shortly before
10:30 p.m., after the conclusion
of the Hardee-DeSoto football
game at Wildcat Stadium.
According to Beattie, "around
300" DeSoto fans descended on
the eatery, pushing the building
past its occupancy limits and
employees past their service
capacity.
His department, he said, was
called to assist with crowd con-
trol.
Ultimately, he added, the
building had to be cleared and
the restaurant temporarily shut


down.
Beattie said his officers were
backed up by those from the
Sheriff's Office and the
Bowling Green Police Depart-
ment as order was restored.
He did note that one arrest
was made, 36-year-old Sheldon
Pearsall of 1928 S.W. Henry
St. in Arcadia. That arrest came

Dispose Of Haz-Mats


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It's the last chance this year!
Before the Thanksgiving and
Christmas holidays bring those
little, inquisitive guests, clean
out anything that could be a
hazard to them.
Clean out the garage, shelves,
shed, closets and wherever else
kids may look. Get rid of the
variety of hazardous waste you
may have accumulated.
Pack it all in your car and
take a short trip Saturday out to
the Hardee County Sanitary
Landfill, 685 Airport Road,
three miles east of Wauchula,


north of CR 636 (East Main
Street).
While you're at it, stop by
that elderly neighbor and pick
up what things they may have.
Between 8 a.m. and noon,
each household can bring for
free up to 60 pounds of house-
hold hazardous waste.
Businesses which generate
less than 220 pounds of haz-
ardous waste per month may
bring it in for disposal but will
have to pay current contract
prices.
Those with more than 220
pounds and less than 2,200

Elections Supervisor Jeff Ussery and office staffer Priscilla Morales stand at the new
"Vote in Honor of a Vet" display in the lobby of the Elections Office in Courthouse Annex
II in Wauchula. Ussery said he began the display to remind citizens of their freedom to
vote and the men and women who have fought to maintain that right, a reminder espe-
cially needed in a year clouded by political party battles. "The parties can take away the
delegates' votes, but they cant take away the voters' voice," he said. Add a photo of a
military member past or present, relative or friend to the display by stopping by
the office at the corner of U.S. 17 and Oak Street. Brief biographical forms are avail-
able to fill out, for a book that will remain with the display so others can learn more
about the person who fought to retain their liberty.

Kelly's Column

A hardcover history book entitled "Hardee County Its
Heritage and Its History" should be printed and available by mid-
December, announced publisher Byron Kennedy, 74, of St.
Petersburg. the selling price will be about $40.
The author is Spessard Stone of Wauchula. The book will have
over 300 pages, will be indexed and have hundreds of pictures, said
Kennedy. About 500 to 700 books will be printed.
"Spessard Stone is one of the most remarkable people I have
ever met," said Kennedy, who has published histories of St.
Petersburg, Hamilton County, Suwannee County, Bradford County,
Gilchrist County, and is currently working on histories of Pasco
and Lake counties.
Stone, who was paralyzed as a boy in a diving accident at
Payne Creek near Bowling Green, has been working on the project
for about a year.'
To reserve a book call 1-800-282-2823.
The Herald-Advocate will be publishing more information
about the book when it is printed, along with a picture of the author
and publisher.
"This will be a really good book, something to be treasured
forever," said Kennedy. , ,. ..,
The last book about Hardee County's history was in paperback
and published in 1929 by The Florida Advocate and written by Jean
Plowden.
Margaret Stringer wrote a history of Wauchula entitled "Watch
Wauchula Win" in 1979 that covered the city from 1886 to 1930.
The books are available for $10 at the Pioneer Park Museum in
Zolfo Springs, and all proceeds go to the Hardee County Library.

Rev. Juanita Wright announced there will be a fundraiser fish
fry Friday, Nov. 9, in Wauchula for New Creation and Family
Resource Center which operates Agape Mission Home for the
mentally challenged in Hardee County.
It will be held beginning at 11 a.m. on Royal's property at
Hwy. 17 South and Orange Street that houses sheds and carports.
The price is $6 a meal and $3 for sandwiches.
She said nile perch (tilapia), flounder and catfish filets will be
served. For more information call 863-781-0982.

The Hardee Wildcat football team will end the regular season
Friday at Ridge High School in Davenport in Polk County. Hardee
is the district runner-up to DeSoto and will play at Sarasota Booker
on Nov. 16 in the playoffs.
The Wildcats have been blanked the past two games and need
to find a scoring offense this week.

During the past year rainfall is down about 10 inches from nor-
mal in this area, causing the ridge lakes to be down, a SWFWMD
official told the Kiwanis Club in Wauchula late this summer.
Pumping groundwater affects surface waters and damages
wetlands, said Ed Hobin, outreach projects coordinator.
The Tampa Bay area has reduced its groundwater pumping
from 192 million gallons a day in the 1990s to 90 mgd in 2007, he
said.
Wastewater plants in the SWFWMD area are recycling 200
million gallons of water a. day.
Improving Lake Hancock will be a major project in the future,
said Hobin. This lake releases water into Peace River.
Hobin predicted more reservoirs and deal plans in Florida's
future. The challenge is to meet water needs and maintain surface
water levels in lakes and streams.
By the year 2025 some 400 mgd more of water will be need-
ed in the district and 700 mgd have been identified to meet that
need, he said.
Kissengen Springs in Polk County used to flow with over 65
mgd daily but dried up years ago after development and mining in
the area.

An easy no-cooking-required recipe for Key Lime Pie from
Cindy Manley mix a half cup of lime juice with eight ounces of
Philadelphia cream cheese and a regular can of Eagle Brand con-
densed sweet milk and place in a Graham Cracker pie crust.

Kindness is the golden
chain by which society is

Office. The club will pack
Samaratin's Purse shoe boxes
for a Christmas service project.
Last year the club packed 28

Club members will donate all
the gifts.
In December the Green

"support your local home shel-
ter."
The contest is based on how
many points the shelter gets
from the community. Just sign-
ing up gives the local shelter
100 points! Once you have cre-
ated your personal account, you
can rate the shelter, add pictures
of your own pets, and post
reviews. Every time you are
active on the site your home-
town animal control receives
points.
The contest ends on March
31, 2008, when all the points
will be added up and the win-
ners determined.
When the Hardee Animal
Control Shelter was originally
constructed, a large building
was not necessary. However, as
the population of stray animals
grows, so does the need to pro-
vide sufficient space to hold
them. By supporting the local
animal shelter, you are not only
providing a home for animals,
but you are also saving lives.
Animal control workers take
pride in their love of animals
and their efforts to keep the
streets of Hardee County safe.
The community can pay them
back by being involved in the
ZooToo million-dollar make-
over to make Hardee County a
better place for pets and pet-
owners alike.

after authorities approached his
car because of its loud music,
but smelled marijuana coming
from inside.
Pearsall produced a gun,
attempted to throw it into a
nearby ditch and scuffled with
an officer, Beattie alleged.
Crowds swarmed around the
officers as they tried to subdue
and detain Pearsall, he added.
All were advised to keep their
distance or face arrest, he said.
A search of Pearsall's vehicle
allegedly revealed a total of six
plastic bags containing marijua-
na in amounts ranging from 1/2
a gram to 1-1/2 grams and 100
$1 bills. Further, his gun, a .38-
caliber Taurus loaded with five
bullets, was seized.


Beattie said that on book-in
at the Hardee County Jail,
another $1,182 in cash was
found to be on Pearsall.
Charges against the suspect
include possession of marijuana
with intent to sell, possession of
a firearm by a convicted felon,
resisting an officer with vio-
lence, displaying a firearm in
public and tampering with evi-
dence.
Pearsall, a convicted armed
robber, was released from the
jail on Sunday to await trial
after posting a $27,000 surety
bond.
The chief said his department
will apply for forfeiture of the
$1,282 in cash and for Pearsall's
1993 Mercury Grand Marquis.


Teen Book Review

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 PRETTY COMMITTEE STRIKES BACK
By Lisa Harrison
Loading up on the bus to head to what is supposed to be a lux-
ury weekend at a wilderness camp with no parents turns out to have
a little twist.
In the book "The Pretty Committee Strikes Back" by Lisa
Harrison, five girls named Massie, Alicia, Dylan, Kristen, Claire,
their classmates, and the Briarwood Academy boys are all shocked
when they find out no cell phones are allowed, and only three pairs
of clothes can be taken for the whole weekend.
But while all that is going on, there are bigger problems aris-
ing. Lying, sneaking around, having boy trouble, and forming
camp teams seem to be splitting all these friends apart.
Wondering what is going to happen next? Then read "The
Pretty Committee Strikes Back" by Lisa Harrison.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Light rains and gusty winds from Tropical Storm Noel slow
field work in parts of the southern Peninsuladuring the week
Oct. 29 Nov. 4. Noel formed in the Atlantic and impacted t
southern Peninsula mid-week, then proceeded north just off t
eastern coast. Some northeastern and central Peninsula localiti
mainly along the Atlantic coast, received outer rain bands fro
Noel. Rainfall ranged from none in Pensacola to nearly two and
.quarter inches in Miami. Several areas received no rainfall or mi
imal traces for the week. Areas receiving over one inch of precil
station included Daytona Beach, Homestead, Kenansville, and W
Palm Beach. Pierson and Orlando received nearly an inch of ra
Overcast skies kept most temperatures one to four degrees abo
normal in the major cities. Pleasant daytime highs were in the 7
and 80s. Cooler evening lows were in the 50s and 60s with so0
areas experiencing at least one low in the 40s. Alachua a
Kenansville reported one low in the 30s.
VEGETABLES
Tropical Strom Noel interrupted some field work in south
Peninsula localities due to high, gusty winds and rains by mi
week. Strong winds in Sumter County caused some damage
squash. Harvesting of most vegetables was underway with wind
wet weather increasing disease pressure in parts of Hendry Coun
Growers in southern Peninsula areas expected to begin harvest
radishes next week. Harvesting of tomatoes was active in Gadsd
County. There were still reports of significant white flies in t
Panhandle. Planting of strawberries in Palatka continued w
growers irrigating as needed due to extremely dry condition
Windy conditions from Noel caused bloom-drop on some vegei
bles in Pompano. Despite rains, harvesting remained on schedu
for watermelons, bell peppers, and cucumbers in Suwannee Valle
green bean yields continue to be low. Harvesting was off to a sic
start in Wauchula with planting of strawberries underway. Growe
in Wauchula finished planting snap beans, bellpeppers, ca
taloupes, cucumbers, tomatoes, and harvesting squash. Product
marketed light supplies of snap beans, Chinese cabbage, cucui
bers, eggplant, squash, and tomatoes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle, pasture condition was very poor to excelled
with most good; cattle condition was fair to excellent. Planting
winter graze small grains in Jefferson County was delayed due
dry soil condition. In Santa Rosa County, grass growth was n
keeping up with grazing. In the northern areas, pasture conditi(
was fair to excellent with most fair. There was notable armywor
damage in many hay fields and pastures in Baker County. In ce
tral areas, pasture condition was poor to excellent with most go(
and cattle condition was fair to excellent with most in good condo
tion. Some hay harvesting was underway. Cooler weather h
slowed grass growth. In the southwestern areas, pasture and cati
conditions were very poor to excellent with most in fair condition
In De Soto County, fields were being readied to plant fall ryegra
for forage. In Okeechobee County, pasture, forage, and cattle co
editions have not been affected by recent rains as pasture was shoN
ing the affect of two seasons of drought. Statewide, cattle conditic

he Class-size amendments ap-
es, proved by voters make their
m effect known as the limits each
d a classroom can hold determines
in- the total number of class-
pi- rooms/schools needed.
est Builders used several argu-
in. ments against school impact
ve fees, citing a loss of 40 students
0s from October 2006 to October
me 2007, a variance not unusual
nd this time of year before Hardee
is the only county to take a final
count in February.
Builders said increased
,rn unemployment and economic
id- instability made the timing
to wrong for approving school
dy, impact fees now. State demands
ty. for Hardee County to update
ng the school element in its Comp
en Plan and set these fees before a
the Dec. 31 deadline negated that
ith argument.
ns. Johnson also pointed out that
ta- there have been more applica-
,le tions for development in the last
ey; 10 years. "The legislature says
Dw you have to share concurrency,
ers and if there is no money for new
in- services, then building permits
ers can't be issued and all building
mn- ceases."
Among the more certain of
proposed housing develop-
ments are the 8,000-acre Sweet-
ant water Estates, and three in the
of western side of the county:
to Vandolah Estates, the Davis
lot properties; and a huge rural
on community center development

sure, probably somewhere in

provisions to keep pace with
growth. It's here; it's coming. It
takes time to plan new facilities.
There may not be a big increase
this year, but it's planning for
the future," said Commissioner
Gordon Norris.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
summed up the feeling of the
commission. "I'd like to vote
against it, the timing may be
off, but ad valorem tax is going
away and probably will more so
in January. The only other
answer is special assessments,
which no one wants.
"It may be that people would
rather choose to do without ser-
vices, which means more pot-
holes, delays in getting an
ambulance or fire truck. We're
not exempt from this. If our
kids or grandkids build a house,
they have to pay these too," he
concluded.
So saying, the commission
voted unanimously to approve
school impact fees effective

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard



THE CAT & THE IRON CLAW
"Put Carlos on the table," said the vet, a young man of about
30 known as Dr. Bud.
Carlos was my cat, a stray calico I'd adopted and named after
the writer, Carlos Castaneda. As I held him out toward the metal
table, he hissed and tried to scratch me. When his feet touched the
tabletop his back went up and he glowered at the vet as if to say,
"Keep your &!*+%# hands off me!"
This was Carlos' second trip to the vet. On his first visit, he'd
gotten a shot. He'd hardly seemed to notice the shot once the nee-
dle was in, but getting him to sit still long enough to take it had
been the trick. The vet had applied a procedure he called "the cat
and the iron claw."
Carlos had taken up in my garage and had been living there
about a month. After tomcatting all night one night, he came limp-
ing in just after daylight looking like he'd had a fine night. His left
ear was chewed up and a chunk had been bitten out of his hind leg.
His fur was matted and bloody.
"Was it worth it?" I asked him.
He seemed to grin. Then he glared at me a moment, and hob-
bled over behind the lawnmower and lay down, ignoring his bowl
of cat food.
I figured he might need a tetanus shot, or whatever kind of
shots cats got after such romps, so that afternoon I took him to the
vet, a young man who asked to be called Bud.
"Put him on the table," Dr. Bud said.
Carlos hissed and scratched at me when I set him down on the
metal tabletop.
"He's scared," I said.
Dr. Bud nodded. He scratched the top of Carlos' head with one
finger, then dragged his fingertips over the patches of black, orange
and white fur on his side. His hands seemed incongruously gentle
considering the strength and power they seemed to possess.
Carlos closed his eyes and purred; but moments later, when the
vet produced a syringe, he sprang to his feet and his back went up
making an arch he hissed through bared teeth and he looked
very angry and mean.
"There now," said the vet soothingly. "This won't hurt. You
won't even know it. A mosquito bite hurts worse. You went through
the painful part last night at the party. Nice kitty."
As he spoke he began to tickle Carlos' chin with one finger
and, almost instantly, Carlos closed his eyes and began to purr
again.
Dr. Bud put his hand gently over Carlos' shoulder to hold him
down so he could administer the shot. Immediately, Carlos began
to struggle.
Dr. Bud eased the pressure, stroked his chin until he relaxed,
and then again applied pressure. He repeated this process several
times.
"Dr. Bud, why don't you just hold him down and shoot him?"
I asked.
He laughed. "I tried it once and discovered fast that I'd need.
an iron claw with an arm wrap up to my shoulder to do that. The
harder you try to hold a cat down, the harder he's going to struggle,
and somebody's going to get hurt, and it very well might be me.
Cats don't like being strong-armed. They'll cooperate and take
their medicine, but you have to make them think it's their decision
to do it."
"Hmmm," I thought
That was many years ago, but I've always remembered Dr.
Bud's lesson of the cat and the iron claw, and I'm convinced it
works with kids as well as cats.
I work with teenagers. In my position, as in most positions
where one is responsible for children, it's imperati\e to keep the
reigns tight.
However I've learned that if I hold them too tightly, if I don't
allow a little wriggle room for them to breathe and believe they're
at least partially in control of their long days in my lustrous pres-
ence, I'd wish I had an iron claw with an arm wrap up to my chin
because the spitting and hissing would be fierce and I'd be
scratched and bloody on a daily basis.

SMART ENOUGH!
It sure is nice to know that all I have to do is sign onto the
Internet, check my e-mail and I will find all my problems have
been solved.
On any given day there is someone proclaiming he will find
me a new job, consolidate my debts, make me healthi-
er/stronger/younger/more appealing to the opposite sex and/or give
me an IQ test so that I can know how smart I am not.
Have you ever taken an IQ test? A sample question is as fol-
lows:
Q: Which number should come next after 144 121 100 81 64?
A: 17, 19, 36, 49 or 50
Well, call me crazy, but I consistently come up with 144 121
100 81 65, which you can clearly see is not an option. I think it's
safe to say that my IQ is roughly equivalent to my shoe size and,
frankly, why do I need to be reminded of that?
Q: John likes 400 but not 300; he likes 100 but not 99; he likes
3600 but not 3700. Which does he like?
A: 900, 1000, 1100 or 1200
Who cares? John clearly needs to get a life.
Many of you may know the correct answers to these cryptic
questions. If you do, keep them to yourself, willya?
I took one of these tests the other day and immediately
received an e-mail telling me that I was too dumb to live and not to
contact them anymore. Well, hey you contacted me, I didn't con-
tact you!
I get confirmations for stuff I never ordered, offers for loans,
cell phones, satellite television, new cars, overnight fat burners,
and offers to hook me up with kids I went to high school with some
30 years ago. Frankly, if I'd wanted to stay in touch with these peo-
ple, I would already know where they are and how they're doing.
Why do I need to know that the class nerd is now worth
$16,000,000,000?
I could refinance my house, meet the love of my life, protect
my pets from fleas, make money at home, get life/health/auto
insurance, naturally fight stress, and save on printer ink cartridges.
I could qualify for a scholarship, get any ring tone I want, fly
to the Bahamas for pennies on the dollar and protect my personal
information for a lifetime with just a click of a button.
I go down this list with my finger poised over the delete but-
ton.
Delete, delete, delete, delete. Sometimes I get stuck in delete
mode and get rid of something I should kept.
"Did you get my e-mail the other day? I'm still waiting for an
answer!"
Oooops.
Meanwhile, I try to be more careful as I delete mail that
promises me that I can learn to speak Spanish, German or French
in three easy steps, get my contractor's license, learn to paint like
DaVinci, curb carpal tunnel syndrome and create a resume that will
"knock the socks off the competition."
Every single Internet provider claims it is the absolute tops
when blocking unwanted mail. So why is it, then, that I continue to
get mail regarding everything, from regrowing hair to solving my
PC problems?
Right now the only problem I am having with my PC is deal-
ing with the tons of junk mail I get every day.
Spam. If they could really figure out a way to fix that, all my
problems would be solved. I wouldn't be losing the hair they
promise to regrow, I would not be nearly so at risk for carpal tun-
nel syndrome, and my stress level would go down considerably.
Makes perfect sense to me.

The peregrine falcon is the fastest animal on earth; it can dive
up to 200 miles per hour.

Outta The Woods

Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


TIME TO HUNT!
November means it's time to gas up the truck and break out
your shooting' iron. The 2007-08 hunting season is here.
This month, general gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel,
snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove
hunting seasons open.
The first thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident
hunting license. Non-residents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or
$151.50 for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one of Florida's many Wildlife Manage-
ment Areas, you'll also need a $26.50 management area permit,
and don't forget to study the brochure for the specific area you plan
to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area
to area.
You can get these brochures your tax collector's office, region-
al Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission offices in
close proximity to the area, or you can download them from the
FWC's Web site, MyFWC.com/hunting.
You can buy your license and permits over the telephone by
calling toll-free 1-888-Hunt-Florida or online at www.wildlifeli-
cense.com. Just have your credit card ready. You also can purchase
them from tax collectors' offices and most retail outlets that sell
hunting and fishing supplies.
The general gun season runs Nov. 10-Jan. 20 in the Central
Hunting Zone. In the Northwest Zone, it comes in Thanksgiving
Day and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season
reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 13. For readers hunting the
South Hunting Zone, the general gun season's already in and lasts
until Jan. 6.
Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler five inches
or longer. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two.
The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called
"doe week" is Dec. 15-21 in the Northwest Zone, Nov. 17-23 in the
Central Zone and Nov. 3-9 in the South Hunting Zone.
During doe week, the daily bag limit's one buck and one doe,
or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you may
during archery season, and spotted fawns are not legal. game.
WMAs do not have a doe week.
If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules


and registration requirements may apply. Call the FWC for details.
Fall turkey season in the Northwest Hunting Zone is Nov.
22-25 and Dec. 8-Jan. 13. In the Central and South zones, it's Nov.
10-Jan. 6. Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and
you must have a $5 turkey permit to '.unt them. The bag limit's one
bird per day, and a total of two du ig the archery, crossbow, muz-
zleloading gun and fall turkey seasons combined.
Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 10-March
2. There's a daily bag limit of 12 for each, and shooting fox squir-
rels is against the law.
Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset.
Snipe hunting in Florida ranks second in the nation in number
of birds harvested each year, and the season runs Nov. 1-Feb. 15


November 8, 2007, The Herald-Advocate 5A
statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged
dove season also came in this month, and runs Nov. 10-25.
Shooting hours for migratory birds are one-half hour before sunrise
to sunset. The bag limits are eight for snipe and 12 for doves.
You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to
hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds.
Whether hunting with friends and family or hunting solo,
going after small game, that monster buck, boar hog or big tom,
November brings loads of great hunting opportunities.
Here's wishing you all a happy Thanksgiving and a successful
i nling season!

In varsity football, the Wildcats are hurting without more than
half their usual offense, thus losing to DeSoto for the first time in
10 years.
However, Sebring's win over Avon Park landed Hardee in the
District 12 runnerup spot. After the final regular season game
tomorrow (Friday), the Wildcats head into the playoffs in a Nov. 16
game at Sarasota Booker, never an easy place to visit, but Hardee
has a desire to win and get to play the DeSoto Bulldogs again in the
second round of the playoffs. Stay tuned.
The JV Wildcats finished their season with a four-game win
streak, including the finale over visiting Okeechobee.
,,,,unior High, football,.also finished with a win, over .rival
Sebring 7-0. Seventh grade running back Aaron Barker has some
fine moves and scored seven times during the season.
Volleyball, golf, cross country and swimming are ended too.
It's time for winter sports.
Girls soccer began last Friday. Boys soccer is under way too.
Girls basketball is in a Tuesday and Thursday tournament at
Sebring this week. Boys basketball starts after Thanksgiving as do
girls weightlifting and junior high hoops.
On the boxing scene, Wauchula pro Edner Cherry has signed
for a bout on Dec. 8, a lightweight rematch with Wes Ferguson. It
will be the undercard bout seen on HBO pay-per-view, coming
about 9 p.m. The main event, about 11, will feature Floyd
Mayweather Jr. and Ricky Hatton.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call The Herald-Advocate (773-3255) or e-mail

with news for this biweekly column. News will be included as soon
as time and space allows.


THE GOOD DRUG
Hardee County is becoming known for its drug problem. It
isn't from a lack of effort and good work from law enforcement. It
comes from a lack of God.
Too many people fall into the trap of trying something "little"
but getting into something big, a using and abusing lifestyle.
I recently came across a little poem that I thought would help us all
know the one "drug" that could eliminate this unfortunate problem
in Hardee County:
I was "drug" to church on Sunday morning.
I was "drug" to church on Sunday night.
I was "drug" to church on Wednesday night.
I was "drug" to Sunday School every week.
I was "drug" to gospel meetings several times a
year.
I was "drug" to the family room to read the Bible
after supper.
I was "drug" to the woodshed when I disobeyed my
parents.
It seems to be discipline that kids are lacking. Whereas the
young man in our story was taught by active parents, whether
through forceful attendance of worship or physical discipline as a
result of disobedience, the kids today are not.
Parents are putting more effort into being their children's
friends than being authority figures. Parents are told by psycholo-
gists and on talk shows that physical punishment is damaging to a
qild's self-esteem.
It may be just me, but I feel that a life-long addiction to nar-
cotics is more damaging to a child than a swat on the bottom.
God felt this way, too. Proverbs says, "He who withholds the
rod hates his son" (13:24). Later the same book teaches.
"Foolishness is bound up in the heart of a child; the rod of disci-
pline will remove it far from him" (22:15).
As parents, we need to lovingly discipline our children, e\ en
if it means physical discipline. The world will tell you differently
than the Bible will, but this explains the drug problemt-in the. warld.I.
I hope that all of our children will 'be "drug"' to th appropriate
places so that they might learn appropriate behaviors and habits.
I'm Telling the Truth.

Letter To The Editor

Public Access To Peace

River Denied On County Line


Dear Editor:
I have been going to Peace
River since I can remember,
however on my last trip I dis-
covered that the bridge was
being closed to public access
for everyone.
Upon my investigation into
why the sign was posted. I was
informed that there has been a
problem with underage drink-
ing under the bridge. In my
opinion, this will not stop the
problem, just prevent law-abid-
ing citizens from accessing
Peace River.
Peace River is a public area,
and access should not be
denied. Taking away citizens'
rights will not stop underage
drinking.
"No Loitering" and "No


Open Container" signs would
serve the purpose.
Peace River is a historical
river that the Spanish used to
get supplies to Fort Meade. You
can look for fossils, fish and
canoe downriver and enjoy the
great outdoors.
Craig Quinn
North Lauderdale
Editor's Note: The Polk County
Transportation Department, at
the request of the Polk County
Sheriff's Office, on Friday, Oct.
26, placed two no-trespassing
signs at the west side of Peace
River on County Line Road east
of Bowling Green. Polk County
was responding to a complaint
by Lakeland attorney Kent Lilly
who in May bought 20 acres


just south of the bridge in
Hardee County. A detailed news
story with photos was published
in last week's Herald-Advocate.
Polk County needs to replace
the signs soon with no-loitering
and no-open containers of alco-
holic beverages. It is not fair to
deny the public access to the
river. Craig Quinn and his son
Stephen, 13, (shown in photo)
put in at the bridge on
Thursday, Oct. 25, and stayed
on the river and camped along
the banks before returning
Sunday, Oct. 28, to discover the
signs and that their car had
been towed. After being helped
by the nearby James Wilkins
family they got their car back
from storage in Fort Meade and
did not have to pay a fee.

Inspiration Point
By Rick Leland
Pastor & Columnist


A PROFESSIONAL BACKSLIDER
"I'm a professional backslider," Lynn told Nancy. Even though
she joked about her spurtish relationship with Jesus, she seemed
interested in the Bible she was leafing through.
Nancy offered a reconnect-with-God solution: She handed her
a twice-folded sheet of paper imprinted with "You Are Invited."
Lynn accepted it without hesitation, indicating she would seriously
consider it.
The invitation described: "Once a week, we get together to
encourage each other along life's journey. Please join us in experi-
encing God! Meetings are designed to teach you the time-tested
wisdom of the Bible. The purpose is to help participants lead mean-
ingful productive lives."
Held at a funky, non-religious gathering place called Harmony
Garden, is this a backslider's answer to prayer?
The Bible says: "The person who backslides in his heart will
be fully repaid for his ways."
Happens every time from what I've seen. Have you ever seen
a person close to God improve his life after backsliding?
The Bible graphically says: "Better not to have started out on
the straight road to God than to start out and then turn back, repu-
diating the experience arid the holy command. They prove the point
of the proverbs, 'A dog goes back to its own vomit,' and, 'A
scrubbed-up pig heads for the mud.' "
Lynn never made it to the meeting. Someone commented, "I
guess she backslid so far she couldn't make it."
Can a person actually backslide past Jesus' reach?
Jesus said, "Here I am! I stand at the door and knock.. If any-
one hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in . ."
Jesus is gently tapping on the door of Lynn's heart. He won't
force His way in. He patiently waits, anxious to renew the rela-
tionship they once had.
Rick Leland, pastor of The Free Church, is a resident of Michigan
who holds a degree in Christian ministry and has served a two-
year apprenticeship with the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild.

the forward-thinking leaders of
two local banks and the educa-

And so the idea for a Cat
Bank was born in the lobby of
Wauchula State Bank in 1996 as
school business partners dis-
cussed the "School-To-Work"
initiative, a program designed
to prepare youngsters for the
workaday world.

and on the ground, it took a last-
minute touchdown and conver-
sion to give the Wildcats a 14-
12 victory in Monday night's
rescheduled Homecoming
game.

HHS Runners Move Up All-
Time Best List: The Alumni
Fun Run last week gave
Hardee's current crop of cross
country runners the opportunity
of a lifetime.
Senior Josh Albritton just
missed third and settled for the
all-time best fourth runner in
the boys HHS record books.
The Wildcats and Lady 'Cats
are preparing for the District 7
race today (Thursday) at the
Englewood Sports Complex.
Gathering for the meet, hosted
by Lemon Bay, are runners
from Sarasota Booker, DeSoto,
Immokalee, Lehigh, North Fort
Myers, Palmetto, Riverdale and
Sebring.

Swim Team Handle High-
landers: Both Hardee swim
teams easily downed their op-
ponents from Lake Wales in a
home meet last week.
Hardee boys, led by the
record-setting performance of
Brett Daggett, claimed a 130-38
victory, while the Lady
Wildcats took a 103-76 win.

OTHER RELIGIONS
Many people, if asked, would tell you that the United States of
America is a religious nation. A "Newsweek" magazine poll cer-
tainly backs that up, reporting that 91 percent of American adults
say they believe in God and 87 percent identify with a specific reli-
gion.
So far, so good.
Yet, in spite, of the fact that nearly two-thirds of Americans
believe that the Bible holds answers to life's basic questions, only
halfcan name the first book of the Bible or even one of the four
gospels. Sixty percent can't name five of the Ten Commandments.
Faith obviously does not translate into knowledge.
But does it really matter? While no one would deny that being
educated about religious matters our own or others'- is a laud-
able goal, faith is private. So it shouldn't really matter to us in our
role as citizens or members of our community, should it?
"More and more of our national and international questions are
religiously inflected," says Stephen Prothero, author of "Religious
Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know and Doesn't."
He adds, "We're doomed if we don't understand what motivates
the beliefs and behaviors of the rest of the world.. We can't out-
source this to demagogues, pundits and preachers with a political
agenda."
You would be hard-pressed these days to scan a newspaper or
watch a newscast and not see references to religious beliefs or dif-
ferences. No one likes to admit ignorance, especially if it's about a
subject such as the tenets of our own faith. The fact is, we may not
know as much as we'd like to think we do. And when it comes to
other religions, most of us would probably prove even less knowl-
edgeable.
"We are not all on the same one path to the same one God,"
continues Prothero. "Religions aren't all saying the same thing.
That's presumptuous and wrong. They start with different prob-
lems, solve the problems in different ways, and they have different
goals."
He believes the only real answer is education.
Not only should our schools be doing more, but adults need to
spend a little quality time with diverse holy books and history texts.
Prothero isn't the only one who thinks it's time we learned more
about other religions' beliefs.
Not long after the horrific events of Sept. 11, 2001, Ranya
Idliby, a New York Muslim, started discussing religious concerns
with a neighbor, Suzanne Oliver, an Episcopalian. They wondered
if a children's book on different religions might be helpful at such
a volatile time. They approached Priscilla Warner, a Jewish writer,
to join them. What happened next was more transforming than any
of them could have imagined. They started what they called The
Faith Club.
Meeting every week or two, they soon found out how little
they knew about each other's faith. They talked, they argued, they
discovered Ztheir own ignorance and prejudices.
And, ultimately, they learned to care about and respect each
other. The result was "The Faith Club: A Muslims a Christiah and a
Jew Three Women Search for Understanding," a very different
book than they'd first envisioned.
Despite all the ways in which the women, who have now
become close friends, differ, Idliby concluded, "Today I feel privi-
leged that I can walk into a church or a temple and feel comfort-
able. I also got in touch with my own faith."
How many of us can say the same?

Instead, he explained, the
honors would be divided be-
tween two School Board meet-
ings, with students from
Bowling Green, North Wau-
chula and Wauchula elemen-
taries applauded in the first
round, and youngsters from
Hilltop and Zolfo Springs ele--
mentaries and the junior and
senior high schools in the sec-
ond.
"This is something we hope
will become a tradition," Jones
went on to say about the honors
which were about to be given.
"I am not sure there is any-
thing more important we can do
than to recognize students for
their accomplishments," he
said, adding, "I would love to
fill a stadium to recognize acad-
emics."
But he did fill a room.
Parents and other supportive
family members filled every
chair, stood against the walls
and sprawled on the floor. "I'm

sorry we ran out of chairs and
some of you have to stand,"
Jones apologized. "But I'm
glad we ran out of chairs. It
means we have a lot of people
here to celebrate."
Jones then explained, "To be
invited tonight, you had to have
scored a (Level) 5 on math,
reading or science, or a 6 on
writing." Then, of course, there
were those students with perfect
scores in reading or math.
"Good for you," he told the
students. "It's a big deal that
you scored so well."
The superintendent continued
to address the youngsters, "The
FCAT is not an easy test. It can
be a very demanding test. You
have a good mind, obviously,
but having a good mind is only
helpful if you choose to use it."
He applauded the students for
choosing to excel and for work-
ing hard to do so.
Then Jones reminded the
youngsters that their successes
are a "team effort," and he
encouraged them to "take a
moment" at a time and place of
their choosing to thank those
who have helped them achieve.

Room, a line of principals and
assistant principals formed
something of a reception line.
Then, as Jones presented each
youngster with a certificate of
achievement, each went on to
shake hands with and receive
congratulations from the assem-
bled educators.
Then it was time for pho-
tographs.
After every student had been
recognized, refreshments were
served.
The honorees and their fami-
lies were treated to cakes, chips,
cookies, Wildcat cupcakes,
other goodies and tubs of ice-
cold drinks to end the celebra-
tion.
The event, hoped to be an
annual affair, was coordinated
through the Hardee County
Chamber of Commerce's
Educational Committee, with
School Board members Gina
Neuhofer and 'Tanya Royal
assisting.
Furnishing the refreshments
were MidFlorida Federal Credit

Fight
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula pro boxer Edner
Cherry will leave Monday to
train full-time for his bout next
month.
It will be a return fight
against 22,year-old Weston
James "Wes" Ferguson of
Flint, Mich., from when Cherry
took a unanimous decision in
June.
They will be first televised
bout of the HBO pay-per-view
evening of boxing which fea-
tures junior welterweights
Floyd Mayweather Jr. and
Ricky Hatton. The Cherry-
Ferguson fight will air about 9
p.m., the championship bout
about 11.
Cherry, 25, a former Hardee
Wildcat football players, is cur-
rently ranked 10th by the World
Boxing Council. He welcomes
folks to stop by Royal's Furn-
iture and give him a bit of
advice and encouragement be-
fore he leaves Monday.
"I want to thank Hardee
County for its support and
encouragement. I couldn't do
without it. The contract is sign-
ed and I'm ready to go," said
Cherry, known as "the Cherry
Bomb."
Cherry fought Ferguson on
June 13 in Tampa. This bout
will be in Las Vegas, Nev., in
the MGM Grand Hotel.
"They don't put you on HBO
just to fill the card. It's a bless-
ing and I will do my best," said

Cherry.
His last appearance on HBO
did not turn out well as Cherry
stepped up from his normal 136
to 140-plus to fight Paulie Mag-
lignaggi, losing a split decision
in that boxer's home town of
New York City.
"I waited too long to get start-
ed, and let him move around the
ring way too much. I don't do
that again," said the 25-year-old
Cherry.
"I want to show that I belong
on HBO. I blew it the last time.
This will be a tough fight but I
am going to Tampa to focus
with my trainer Peter Fernan-
dez. I plan a better fight than the
last one," concluded Cherry.
His 22-5-2 record includes
110 TKOs and he has boxed on
ESPN2, Showtime and HBO.
He holds five title belts, begin-
ning with the Caribbean WBC
lightweight title in 2004.
Cherry recently came under
the management of Allen Elli-
son, a former Wildcat now in
his senior year at Florida South-
ern College and president of
Ellison, Keesee, Gray & Asso-
ciates Inc., a corporate manage-
ment firm he will continue
while in law school after his
December graduation.
For now, his attention is cen-
tered on Cherry, and exposure
which may move him up in the
lightweight rankings, taking on
the winner of the recent Juan
Diaz-Julio Diaz title bout in
Illinois.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
WHERE DOES CHARACTER START
Can you become a top athlete if you skip training? Can you
become an effective Christian without discipline? Not likely.
Why is today's church in America so weak? Shallow commit-
ments and a general atmosphere of defeat have lowered expecta-
tions to the point where almost anyone can claim to be a
"Christian." What is the missing ingredient? Character.
Character is something that happens to people while they are
doing what they know is right over time. It is not an instantaneous
gift from Heaven.
If you want a strong character, you are going to have a fight on
your hands. Your flesh, like a spoiled child, will throw a tantrum.
The world will tempt you as it has successfully done in the past.
And the devil will scorn your puny efforts and point to your miser-
able record.
But if you have the good sense to throw yourself on the Lord,
He will take you your case and become your Champion.
This doesn't mean we retire to the bench. We become warriors
in the strength of Another an do battle against sin in our personal
lives, our church life and our national life! We deny ourselves, take
up our crosses and follow Him (Matthew 16:24). This means doing
what we know to be right in the face of opposition.
How can we do this? Well, certainly not by sniffling and sulk-
ing and wallowing in self-pity. "I have come that you might have
life" Jesus said, "and that you might have it more abundantly."
So let's start living that way!
If you lack character, so do millions of others. However, there
is no better time than now to start building it! We have everything
we need to do it: Christ Himself!
Let's get going!


Jessica Ann McCoy has

The bride-elect is the daugh-
ter of Loran and Shirley Cog-

HJHS Football


Finishes With Win


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High
Wildcats began and ended the
season with wins over Sebring.
In the year that Sebring was
the Heartland Conference team
to play twice, Hardee took full
advantage, beating the young
Streaks on a field goal on their
turf and a touchdown at home
last week. (To even the number
of games, each team plays one
other twice during a season and
this is done on a rotating basis,
not the same two teams each
year).
In between the first and last
games, Hardee changed quar-
terbacks several times. One
consistent player was seventh
,grader Aaron Barker, who
scored seven times during the
season.
The Wildcats had a strange
season but persevered. "We had
five starters from last year not
come out this year or came out
and quit. We had six other
eighth graders quit," said head
coach Gregg White.
"In fact, I gave the game ball
to Dawson Crawford. He
learned on Friday that he was
moving from fullback to quar-
terback. I gave him the plays
Friday afternoon to study over
the weekend. He showed up and
ran the offense well," comment-
ed White.
Hardee finished the final
game with six seventh graders
as starters on offense, Barker,
Tyshon Hillard, Rufino Gabriel,
William Beattie, Ledarius
Camel and Jesus Zuniga.
Joining them on offense and
defense were eighth graders
Crawford, Deonte Evans,
Travis Britt, Jeremy Strickland,
Antonio Moreno, Justin Knight,
Jake Mason, Wintz Terrell,
David Dease, Murrell Winter,
James Brown, Tommy Parker,
Justin Sauvey, Carter Lambert,
Jose Maldonado, Dalton Rabon
and Dylan Farr.
Others suiting up for the final
game were eighth graders,
injured quarterback Andrew
Hooks, Ramiro Briones, Daniel
Miller, Garrett Mimbs, Brandon
Farabee, .Jabrae Moore, Dylan
Clements, Gregory .Garza, Juan
Short, Miguel Santana and
Julian Varela.
Also, seventh graders Aubry
Campbell, Justin Rickett, Sid-
ney Crews, Hunter Collins, Jose
Lobato, Michael Moreno, Josh-
ua Fowler and Will Bennett.
"We finished 3-3, better than
the 2-4 of a year ago or 1-5 the
year before. Of course, I'm
never pleased when I know the
players were better than their
record. A couple of kids worked
hard, but we need all 11 to do it.
"I think we've coached good
enough to win. Everything we
showed them to prepare them,
they ran. Coaches Mike loan-
nidis and Myron Refoure


spent hours going over the
tapes. We have a good support
staff in them, Chris Polly, Mark
Carlton and Shawn Rivers,"
said White, crediting his staff
for its contributions.
"Sometimes we get into it too
much and put pressure on our-
selves and the kids. We have to
slow down and remember that
most of them are just 12 or 13
years old. Just getting them out
and dressed, it's a learning
ground. We try to instill disci-
pline, get to practice every day
and put forth the effort. In life,
if you don't work to ,the best of
your ability, instead of watching
life go by, you won't succeed.
Some prefer to sit and watch,"
continued White.
"At this level it is 95 percent
instruction. We have an offense
day, a defense day, a walk
through day, a combination of
offense and defense. It's a lot of
repetition. The kids playing on
the junior varsity now are so
much better than they were in
junior high because they under-
stand what it's all about and can
be more aggressive. I'm confi-
dent they learned here what
they were supposed to, tech-
niques, respect and teamwork,"
concluded White.
He gave special mention of
some players who had a good
season. "Tony Moreno did a
great job on defense. I can't say
enough about Wintz Terrell
anchoring the line with a bunch
of 'rookies'", added White.
Recapping the season,
Hardee began with a game-win-
ning 27-yard field goal by Jesus
Zuniga in 'a 3-0 win over
Sebring back on Sept. 25. At
home against DeSoto on Oct 2,
there were a 34-yard TD pass
from Mikey Retana tQ Randall
Rivers and a 32-yard Barker
run, but Hardee didn't get the
PATs and lost 14-12.
When Avon Park came to
visit on Oct. 9, Hardee had a 4-
.yard Barker run and PAT kick
by Zuniga, but lost 12-7. The
junior 'Cats got back on the
winning track on Oct 16 at Hill-
Gustat. Barker had TD runs of
one yard, 23 yards and eight
yards, and Retana passed to
Rivers for a 6-yard TD, with a
Zuniga kick. Hardee won 25-0.
A trip to Lake Placid on Oct.
23 didn't go Hardee's way.
Barker scored on a 3-yard run.
Retana passed to Deonte Evans
for the score and Zuniga tagged
on the extra point. He also
blocked a punt for a safety in
the 26-15 loss.
Getting home and on track
with the final 7-0 win over
Sebring gave Hardee a .500
record for the 2007 season.
Encouraging the junior Wild-
cats all along the way were
cheerleaders Brianna Albritton,
Savannah Albritton, Smokee
Barker, Sierra Coronado, Dana
Douglas, McKenna Hellein,
Shelby Lambert, Emma Marsh-
all, Lindsey Martin, Cierra
Martinez, Lacey McClenithan,
Farrah Muntz, Krista Pilkington
and Taylor Pohl. Brooke Con-
ley was mascot and the girls
were coached by Ashleigh
Hayes.

A mother asked, "Marilyn, were
you a good girl in church today?"
"Yes. ma'am," she answered. "A
man offered me a plate of money.
I wanted it, but I said, 'No, thanks.'"
Isn't it just like us to be more
concerned about getting than
giving?
But it's the generous heart that's
made glad, not the greedy heart.
It's the one who shoulders his
responsibilities that's satisfied,
not the one who shuns them.
It's the one who shares his
talents that's made happy, not the
one who stores them.
The Living Bible says, "If you
give, you will get! Your gift will
return to you in full and overflowing
measure."


Touchdown
The game is almost over, It's the critical moment. The linal score
hangs on the last play. If it is successful, the player who makes it will
be the hero of the day. If it's not, people may not entirely blamelhim,
but even so.,.he's no longer The hero.
Throughout our lives, even if we never touch a football, we cannot
avoid coming up against moments when the "final score" depends upon
our actions. We must decide what "play" to make. Making a decision
is never easy, especially when the decision affects others and major
decisions almost always do.
We don't have to make decisions alone. Join the team at your house
of worship and let God call the plays. He will decide the final score.

HJHS Softball Lashes Lake Placid


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High soft-
ball team concluded its season
last week with a shut-out victo-
ry over Lake Placid.
The team ended its 2007
string with a 7-3 record, losing
two games by a run and one by
two runs. "It was a good season.
"I'm hoping upcoming seventh
graders will step up and fill the
slots being vacated by our
eighth graders. Hopefully,
they'll play recreational ball
this spring and summer and
come out here for the fall," said
head coach Sharri Knight, who
was assisted by Beth Sasser.
She will lose eighth graders
Maria Ancelmo, Taylor Bolin,
Sabrina Hernandez, Cassidy
Knight, Amanda McNabb,
Courtney Parks, Kayla Powell
and Savannah Selph to the high
school level.
Returning will be stellar
pitcher Kayla Knight, Jessica
Harrison and Nicole Franks,
along with managers Brooke
Knight, Hailey Clements and


Karlee Henderson, who will
add pitching relief.
Everyone got into the game at
Lake Placid in which Kayla
Knight recorded 13 strikeouts
in six innings. Parks came into
to pitch the seventh inning.
Hardee opened with four
runs. Ancelmo was hit by a
-'tch and was later out on a
fielder's choice. Kayla Knight
singled and scored, as did
Cassidy Knight. Bolin walked
and also scored. A Hernandez
homer brought runners in to
make it a 4-0 game.
In the home half of the
inning, Lake Placid got one run-
ner aboard on a single, but she
was caught stealing. A girl who
walked was left stranded when
Knight struck out the side.
In the top of the second stan-
za, Hardee plated another run.
Ancelmo walked and scored on
hits by Kayla Knight and Bolin,
before the third out ended the'
Hardee hopes. Two strikeouts
and a pop-up ended the second
inning.
Both the third and fourth


innings went by three up, three
down by both squads.
In the top of the fifth, with
one away, Bolin drew a walk
but was caught trying to steal.
Hernandez singled and Franks
walked, but they were stranded.
A ground-out was followed by a
walk for Lake Placid, but a fly-
out double-play ended the
inning.
On to the sixth inning, when
Hardee added a pair of scores.
McNabb worked for a walk and
Ancelmo singled. They both
came home on a Cassidy
Knight double. Lake Placid's
trio was retired on strikes.
In the top of the seventh, and
final, inning, Hardee combined
walks, hit batters and hits to put
a half dozen scores on the
board. Franks, Parks, McNabb,
Selph, Ancelmo and Kayla
Knight all came around to cross
home plate.
With a final three outs in the
home half of the inning, Hardee
claimed the 13-0 win and head-
ed home, ending its season on a
high note.

Middle East Crisis


Also Touches Home


By DAVID KELLY
TenTsions mount in the Middle East
as conquering Iraq continues to
build its forces in the oil-rich
kingdom of Kuwait.
With Iraqi troops now reportedly
numbering 160,000 in the overcome
country, the American military
plans a sbpw-of-strmength response
..and will.deploy 2,000 U.S. soldiers
into strategic areas of Saudi Arabia,
if necessary.
These events 7,000 miles away
touch home in ways other than just
the price of gasoline at the pumps.
The following mmen have been, or
soon will be, shipped or flown to
Saudi Arabia to protect American
interests and citizens. These men
have either lived in Hardee County
or have family that is still here.
Brian Eldridge, son of Clyde
Eldridge and Billie Justesen, is
private first class with the 82nd
Airborne. Brian entered the service


June 22, 1988. He is enlisted for four
years. He left for Saudi Arabia Aug.
13 from Fort Bragg, N.C.
Eldridge is normally assigned to
1st Blrigade Headquarters Com-
mand Post, located somewhere in
the northern desert of Saudi Arabia.
This iN not the first overseas conflict
he has been involved with. He was
also in Panama just a short time 0O
ago, making this two overseas
conflicts in a year's time.
Brian's mother mentioned that
people all over the United Statem are
tying orange ribbons on mailboxes
and doors for the boys who are in the
service overseas.
Another serviceman Irom
Waudiula is now in Saudi Arabia. He
is 1st Lt. Felix Perez Jr., son of Dr.
and Mrs. Felix Perez. Perez flew out

N.C., where he left for Saudi Arabia
on Aug. 12. He went to Saudi Arabia

Hardee Memorial Hospital.
Robert Mays, of Sarasota, filed
the action in federal district court on
Friday. He has also listed the
Florida Patient's Compensation
Fund as a defendant.
He is seeking damages in excess of
$50,000 and is asking for a jury trial.
The lawsuit alleges hospital
employees were negligent in
December of 1978 when they sent
Mayq and his wife. Barbara. now


The Twiggs have long contended
Kimberly was swapped at birdith In
1978 at Hardee Memorial Hospital
for a child they raised as their own,
Arlena, who died of a congenital
heart defect in 1988.
The situation first came to light in
September 1988 when the Twiggs
filed a multi-million-dollar lawsuit
against the hospital, which was .later
dismissed on a technicality but
refiled in 1989.
Genetic testing conducted last
November determined with 99.0

'Dawgs Down 'Ca


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Despite Friday's loss, the
Hardee Wildcats are in the play-
offs.
Without a pair of its offensive
weapons, the 'Cats held off the
undefeated DeSoto Bulldogs
for most of the game, allowing
a touchdown only in the first
and fourth quarters. With a safe-
ty after an errant punt snap,
DeSoto won 17-0.
But, Avon Park's loss to


Sebring put the Wildcats (6-3,
2-2-) in the playoffs as District
12 runner-up, facing the District
11 champion Sarasota Booker
Tornadoes in Tornado Alley on
Nov. 16.
Before that game, Hardee has
another huge challenge tomor-
row (Friday) at Davenport, fac-
ing the 6-3 Class 3A Ridge
Community Bolts. Their losses
were 22-19 in double overtime
to the 5A nationally ranked
Lakeland Dreadnaughts, 37-21


to state- ranked Kathleen and
to District 10 winner Lake
Wales 24-14.
Hardee's 6-3 record has loss-
es to Avon Park 10-7 in a nasty,.
rainy game, to 5A Cape Coral
30-0 and to district champ
DeSoto.
The 'Cats may still be with-
out seniors Jimmy Cimeus
(thigh bruise) and Jordan Grim-
sley (suspended from school) to
face the Bolts. Sophomore
quarterback Ezayi Youyoute is
back at the helm of the 'Cats,
using senior Jayquan Gandy
and freshman Jarrius Lindsey as
running backs, and Nolan
Neuhouser, Kelsheem White
and Nick Battles as receivers.
Kicker Jose Caseneda com-
pletes the package.
The Bolts have a variety of
talent for junior quarterback
Chris Flowers to use. Running
backs Michael James, Kwa-
mane Howard and Vincent
Williams, who may be an FSU
signee, are joined by receivers
Bruce West and Donald Carter.
Kicker Jorge Castaneda gets in
on the action.
Defensively, linemen Calvin
Mason and Johnathan Murdock
and linebackers Steven Imhoff,
*Dominique Anderson and Ras,
Arnold are standouts.
Hardee counters with its own
outstanding defense, led by
Player of the Week junior David
Newcomb, who had 12.5 tack-
les, three assists and a fumble
recovery in last week's game.
Logan Thomas, Joseph Barton
and Jason Jester recorded sacks.
Thomas and Antjuan Jones each
had a half dozen tackles. Lind-
sey and Juan Salazar added 6.5
apiece. Wade Mahoney chipped
in with four tackles and six
assists.
Against DeSoto, Hardee won
the coin toss and elected to de-
fer to the second half. The Bull-
dogs responded by taking the
opening kickoff and using eight
plays to score with a variety of
running options. Senior quarter-
back Shay Shine slipped into
the end zone on the keeper. The
PAT kick made it 7-0, less than
three minutes into the game.
After that initial burst,
Hardee settled down to a defen-
sive struggle with the Bulldogs.
Neither team made great
progress. Hardee moved to
midfield and booted to the
DeSoto 5. DeSoto started and
returned the ball to Hardee as
the first quarter came to a close.
An interception stopped
Hardee progress, but the Bull-
dogs were forced to punt, a
short bouncer that ended up
back in DeSoto territory. Hard-
ee started with a Lindsey gain
and ended with another inter-
ception.
A fumble recovered by
Newcomb gave Hardee another
chance, but the 'Cats went

* I


They who give up essential liberty to obtain a little tem-
porary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.
-Benjamin Franklin


Don't Just Stand There, Pray
In response to my last article, again God urges me to
write the things that He impresses on my heart. I was
glad and saddened at the same time at the response to the
city wide prayer meeting that was called to pray for our
city on October 31st. Many of you may have wondered
where was I, but I was there and I saw all of you and God
did too. I did not reveal myself because God told me not
to, He said, it's not important who blew the trumpet, but
it is important who heard and answered the call. Many
Christians are quick to answer the call of man because it
is someone they know, but we are often slow to answer the
call of God. We must remember that God don't need us to
do what He has already planned to do, He can use anyone,
but He loves it when we walk in agreement with Him. It's
sad to say that just a few weeks ago, main street was filled
to capacity with people, the mayor, sherif, city council-
men, teachers, pastors, and many Christians, some in
wheelchairs and others on crutches, all in support of the
homecoming parade: Yet just a few weeks later when a call

"We just need to get the

trying to do too much. We'll get
that adjusted. The defense is
doing a great job playing tough,
but they are out there a lot. We
have three hard games here at


the end of the season, but it will
make us stronger for playoffs,"
said head coach Tim Price, who
hopes his Wildcats can get
another shot at DeSoto in the
second round of the playoffs.

Now in its 87th game, the oldest football rivalry in the state included this
1953 game between the Hardee Wildcats and the DeSoto Bulldogs. During
the Homecoming Game, team physician Dr. Miles Collier (left), owner and
physician at Wauchula Infirmary at Florida Avenue and West Main Street,
gave temporary care to Leonard Crawley, who suffered a busted lip when
connecting with an opponent's helmet. After the game he went to the
Infirmary, where Collier placed stitches in the wound. The identity of the
water boy$ is unknown.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, it's back to the old "championships are
won in November" cliche. Truthfully, it really is. Every conference
has its showdowns coming up this month. Kansas has to play
Missouri, with the winner probably facing Oklahoma in the Dr.
Pepper Big 12 Title Game. The SEC has so many key games left
the scenario is mind boggling. The ACC is looking like the winners
of Clemson-Boston College and Virginia- Va. Tech in the champi-
onship game. The Big East could come down to West Virginia host-
ing UConn. The Big 10 will have its annual deciding game
between Michigan and Ohio State.
How about Navy breaking the 43-year-old Notre Dame Jinx?
Way back to the days of "Jolly Roger" Staubach. I remember Roger
leading Navy to a 51-7 win over West Virginia at Old Mountaineer
Field in 1963. Speaking of the Irish, they should be told to either
join the Big East for football at this point or get their other sports
out of the conference. They have lived a privileged life for too
long. Big East expansion to 12 teams is another subject.
When I saw the lineup for TV this weekend with Ohio State
vs. Wisconsin and Michigan vs. Michigan State as headliners, I
thought it is time to paint the bathroom. Watching paint dry or Big
10 football? I would watch the paint dry. BTW, Bowling Green
beat Akron 44-20. Ohio State beat Akron 20-2. Won't even go to
the Appy State scores.
Thank you Bobby and the Noles for exposing the media myth
we know as Boston College. Matt Ryan for Heisman, indeed.
Anyone else sick of seeing Flutie's Hail Mary Pass for the three
millionth time? Wonder why they never show his 10-51 passing
day with 5 INT's versus West Virginia, a team Doug lost to every
time in college'?
Kansas is making some noise. Seventy-six points on Nebraska
must have been the payback for decades of being on the other end
of those scores. Mangino has done a solid job turning around the
Jay Hawks.
This week's Swami's Top 5 Heisman Candidates
1. Pat White West Virginia QB He makes Rodriguez's'
spread offense go. Pat can run it or throw it.
2. Steve Slaton West Virginia RB If he got 35 carries like
Rice, Steve would have 2,000 yards.
3. Ray Rice Rutgers RB Gets better as the game goes on.
Emmit Smith-like.
4. Dennis Dixon Oregon QB would love to see a West
Virginia-Oregon Rose Bowl to watch him and Pat.
5. Colt Brennan Hawaii QB can't deny his numbers.
Now for this week's Bill O' Fare . .
1. Louisville at West Virginia Thursday Night kickoff to
the weekend should see the Mountaineers defense surprise the
Cardinals while the WVU rushing game has its way with the U of
L defense. Slaton and White will have big numbers. Brian Brohm
will run for his life all night. West Virginia 45 Louisville 24.
2. Rutgers at Army Scarlet Knights are still looking at a
good bowl game but need these kinds of wins. Rice should have
200 yards rushing in this one. RU had 511 yards total offense but
lost to UConn! Rutgers 48 Army 17.
3. USF at Syracuse Bulls need to be careful. The Orange is
not as bad as the record indicates. USF needs every win to insure a
good bowl spot. The latest projections have the Bulls back at the
Papa Johns Bowl in Birmingham versus Houston from C-USA.
USF 24 Syracuse 13.
4. UConn at Cincinnati Bearcats have fallen off in recent
weeks despite winning at South Florida but at home, bowl implica-
tions on the line and still in the Big East hunt, it should propel UC
to an upset wirenhere. Cincinnati 31 UConn 27.
5. FSU at Virginia Tech Bowden's boys did the football
world a great service exposing the BC Eagles. This week, Noles
will be ambushed in Blacksburg. The hostile environment and the
Hokies' defense shut down FSU's offense despite the improving
play displayed last week. Virginia Tech 34 FSU 10.
6. Florida at South Carolina Spurrier would love nothing
more than to beat his Alma Mater. This game will be very intense
but the effectiveness of Tebow will play a huge role. Projections
have the Gators in the Outback Bowl against Penn State this week.
Tebow didn't seem too hampered with injuries against Vandy.
Florida 33 South Carolina 20.
7. Auburn at Georgia Tigers have been up and down in
2007 and the Dawgs seem to be peaking at the right time. Lose to
USF then beat Florida in the Swamp sums it up for AU. Georgia 31
Auburn 27.
8. Arkansas at Tennessee Vols are still in the thick of it
while the Hogs are squealing. McFadden has dropped off the

Heisman talk since getting 61 yards against FIU. Tennessee 38
Arkansas 23.
9. Kentucky at Vanderbilt UK needs to finish strong but
Vandy has bowl hopes too! UK 40 Vandy 31.
10. Louisiana Tech at LSU Good break in the SEC sched-
ule for the Tigers to cruise and look toward the closing of a suc-
cessful season. Now, it looks like the Title game if no slip-ups. LSU
59 LT 10.
11. Boston College at Maryland Now that the ridiculous
ranking and laughable Heisman talk is gone, BC is back to the noth-
ing special status they had when BC was the perennial 5th place
team in the Big East. The Terps have been up and down. Friedgen
needs to have his guys rebound after losing to UNC. Maybe wish-
ful but... Maryland 24 BC 21.
12. East Carolina at Marshall The Herd has gone from the
Boise St. of the 90s to the Temple of the new millennium under
Snyder. Last week's fiasco at UCF should have been the last straw
but the president of the school has given him his backing for next
year. ECU, on the other hand, is moving up under Skip Holtz. ECU
49 Marshall 17.
13. Alabama at Mississippi State Tide must rebound after
almost shocking LSU. Saban needs a good bowl. Croom's Bulldogs
are shooting for a bowl game and a turnaround of the program.
Alabama 34 Miss State 21.
14. UCF at UAB UCF is on A roll in C-USA. UAB is as bad
as Marshall. The Knights are bowl bound but which one may
depend on the C-USA Title game. UCF 45 UAB 14.
15. Wake Forest at Clemson WFU had its run last year.
This year could be the Year of the Tiger! After Clemson blows out
BC, it should face Virginia Tech in Jacksonville for the ACC Title.
Clemson 38 WFU 17.
16. Minnesota at Green Bay Favre still can do it. Packers
31 Vikes 21.
17. Jacksonville at Tennessee Jags bounce back. Jax 34
Titans 27.
18. Buffalo at Miami Fish can't get a break. Buffalo 27
Miami 20.
19. Cleveland at Pittsburgh Good old-time rivalry. Steelers
30 Browns 24.
20. Indianapolis at San Diego Manning leads the Colts to
victory as usual. Indy 38 SD 24.


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


He who does not love has not become acquainted with
God for God is love.
I John 4:8
Whoever is learning to know God listens to the older men and
women in the Lord. That is how we know they are children of God.
He who does not listen or pay attention to those who know
God do not have the Spirit of Truth in them, but the spirit of error.
We are to love one another, for love is from God. We are to
love our fellow man so the world will know we are begotten of
God, and that we are coming to know and understand God better.
If God loves us so much by sending His only begotten Son to
die for us, then we also ought to love one another. Because of Jesus,
we are also begotten of God, and God loves us as much as He loves
Jesus. This is hard to understand without the Holy Spirit making it
real to us.
But if we love one, another, God lives in us, and His love is
brought to full maturity in us!
By this we come to know that we abide in Him and He in us,
because Hehas 4*uto HofJHis Holy Spirit. This is a good
Golden Nugget. ."'-


The


Wildlife Officials To Test For
Bird Flu At WMA Check Stations


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and United States De-
partment of Agriculture Wild-
life Services biologists will col-
lect samples from hunter-har-
vested ducks, at several wildlife
management area check sta-
tions throughout the state, to
test for highly pathogenic avian
influenza H5N1.
Hunters will not need to sur-
render their ducks, and partici-
pation is voluntary. The sam-
pling will involve swabbing the
ducks' respiratory and digestive
tracts. Samples will be shipped
to a diagnostic lab, where they
will be tested for avian influen-
za and other diseases.
The sampling is part of a con-
tinuing international surveil-
lance effort to determine if mi-
gratory birds carry the H5NI
strain of avian influenza in
North America. Last year, more
than 85,000 samples were col-
lected nationwide. None of the
samples tested positive for the
virus.
While it is extremely unlikely
that hunters could contract
avian influenza from wild birds
in Florida, officials recommend


taking common-sense precau-
tions to reduce the risk of con-
tracting any disease from
wildlife. For instance, do not
harvest or handle wild birds that
are obviously sick or found
dead; wear rubber gloves while
cleaning game; clean game out-
doors and upwind; and do not
eat, drink or smoke while clean-
ing game.
It's also important to wash
hands with soap and water or
alcohol wipes immediately after
handling game or cleaning bird
feeders and wash tools and
work surfaces used to clean
game birds with soap and water,
then disinfect with a 10-percent
bleach solution.
In addition, hunters should
separate raw meat, and any-
thing it touches, from cooked or
ready-to-eat foods to avoid con-
tamination.
The FWC recommends cook-
ing game birds thoroughly.
Meat should reach an internal
temperature of 165 degrees
fahrenheit to kill disease organ-
isms and parasites.

Fish Busters
.By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


ANGLING FOR A CAMELOT
King Arthur had his knights of the roundtable and now Darrell
Scovell, director of Freshwater Fisheries Management, has his
roundtable, too. The Arthurian legend shows the noble contribu-
tions of the knights, which still shines brightly today.
Among the characters in the legend, the enigmatic Fisher King
suffered through great pain while protecting the Holy Grail and
found relief in fishing an all too clear analogy to the challenges
growth is placing on Florida's hallowed fisheries.
On Oct. 19, the division leadership convened a roundtable
using Group Solutions to moderate the event. The intent was to
help identify key issues that may cause pain and suffering to
Florida's freshwater fisheries and anglers and to create a vision for
the future our Holy Grail. In the meeting were outdoor writers,
university professors, fishing, tackle manufacturers and retailers,
fishing tournament sponsors, professional fishing guides and oth-
ers who hold a stake in the future of Florida's freshwater fisheries.
Participants began by identifying the key government players
that are involved in ensuring safe and sustainable freshwater fish-
eries for Florida. They identified the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission, Departinent of Environmental Protec-
tion, water management districts, U.S. Corps of Engineers and
municipal governments as being key players.
Those selections seem very appropriate, since in the next
phase they identified aquatic plant management as the most impor-
tant issue, followed by water quality (pollution issues, both point
and non-point), then water quantity concerns (minimum flows in
rivers, high/low water schedules and timings in lakes), and educa-
tion and outreach. Outreach is generally described as efforts to
recruit/retain anglers and inform them of their crucial role in pro-
tecting our resources. Further down the list were issues of regula-
tion management, fish stocking and more traditional conservation
agency responsibilities.
The roundtable participants indicated that access issues were
the key deterrents to recreational fishing participation. Similarly,
knowledge about how and where to go fishing needs to be better
dispersed. The cost of fishing tackle and licenses were viewed as a
very minor impediment to participants.
The roundtable results were very similar to recent survey
results conducted by both agency staff and objective third-party
researchers, and also confirmed the issues identified in a series of
local zone summits that the division held last year for anglers and
citizens.
Based on these background issues, the "knights" of our round-:
table agreed to serve by continuing to provide input to the Fish &
Wildlife Commission and to maintain an open dialogue about
issues and their solutions. They considered the need to organize
into a proactive coalition and possibly assist with developing a new,
written vision and facilitating plans to ensure that Florida remains
the "Fishing Capital of the World."
Stay tuned for what happens next in our quest to work with
stakeholders to create a shining Camelot in the future for Florida's
fish and anglers.
