Refuge SWFWMD Extends Water Restrictions


Wins


Award
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An international award has
been sent to a local animal
sanctuary.
SPCA International announc-
ed recently a $1,000 donation to
the Peace River Refuge and
Ranch, 1057 Steve Roberts
Special, Zolfo Springs.
"The exotic animal shelter
will also be featured on www.-
SPCA.com/peaceriver refuge in
order to attract additional dona-
tions," said the Society for the
Prevention of Cruelty to
Animals International press
release
"We are truly amazed by the
exhaustive efforts of the Peace
River Refuge and Ranch. They
are a one-of-a-kind sanctuary
and they have made an incredi-
ble commitment to exotics liv-
ing in .the United States," said

Of The Herald-Advocate
Water restrictions aren't stop-
ping anytime soon.
They may become even more
restrictive in future months. For
now, the governing board of the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District (SWFWMD)
has voted to extend its water
shortage order through June 30.
"If conditions continue to
deteriorate in any part of the
District, the Governing Board
may choose to tighten restric-
tions in that area," said director
David Moore..
In fact, during its meeting on
Monday, the board voted to rec-
ommend emergency status in
Manatee and Sarasota counties.
The Peace River/Manasota
Regional Water Supply Author-
ity, which supplies water to
250,000 people in Charlotte,
DeSoto and Sarasota counties
has only 1.1 billion gallons of
water in storage, enough to last


only 80 to 100 days. So,
Manatee County is being asked
to increase its water supply to
Sarasota County.
In Hardee, as well as most of
the other 15 counties in
SWFWMD, water restrictions
'apply to' the use of public and
private water utilities, and the
use of water from wells and sur-
face water bodies (ponds,
rivers).
People are restricted to once-
a-week lawn watering, accord-
ing to a schedule by address.
The order applies to both com-
mercial and residential proper-
ties. On properties under two
acres, watering is to be before 8
a.m. or after 6 p.m.
Those with addresses ending
in 0 or 1 may water on
Monday. For those ending in 2
or 3, it is Tuesday; 4 or 5 is
Wednesday; 6 or 7 is Thursday;
and for 8,9 or locations without
a discernible address it is
Friday.


During cooler weather, peo-
ple are asked to "skip a week."
University of Florida research
shows as temperatures cool,
grass doesn't need to be
watered as often. Your lawn
needs water when grass blades
are folded in half or are blue-
gray and a footprint remains on
the lawn where you walk.
For other suggestions, or
explanation of the restrictions,
go to the district website,
www.WaterMaters.org/conser-
vation or call 1-800-848-0499
or 1-800-423-1476 during busi-
ness hours.
Throughout the district,
which ranges from Citrus and
Pasco counties to Charlotte and
Sarasota counties, all 16 coun-
ties are experiencing an annual
rainfall deficit of about 9.6
inches. The Green Swamp
Basin, headwaters for the
Withlacoochee, Hillsborough
and Peace rivers, shows the

Driver Ejected In

Rollover Crash Dies


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 23-year-old Wauchula man
was killed in a single-vehicle
crash late Friday night, the
Florida Highway Patrol report-
ed.
Modesto Armenta-Vargas, of
711 Palmetto St., was driving
his 1994 Isuzu eastbound on
Griffin Road just west of
Popash Road when the crash
occurred at about 11 p.m., Cpl.
Kimberly A. Benavidez said.
Benavidez said that as
Armenta-Vargas approached a
left-hand curve, he drove off the
pavement and onto the grass
shoulder.
There, the Isuzu struck a
ditch, with the impact vaulting
the vehicle over a private drive-
way before hilling the ground


and colliding with a wooden
electric pole.
The corporal said that the
vehicle began to roll, ejecting
Armenta-Vargas. The Isuzu hit
Armenta-Vargas as it continued
to overturn prior to striking a
second power pole.
The man was found lying
face down in the grass on the
southside shoulder of the road-
way, Benavidez said.
The Isuzu, she added, came
to a final rest in an upright posi-
tion, facing west, also in the
grass. Damage to it was esti-
mated at $9,000.
It was unknown if the acci-
dent was alcohol-related, Bena-
videz said in her report.
Armenta-Vargas became the
fifth person to die on Hardee
County roadways so far this
year.

REFUGE
Continued From 1A
director of communications.
"The sanctuary needs all the
support they can get and we ask
every animal lover to visit our
website and make a contribu-
tion to this extraordinary life-
saving team," Scroggs contin-
ued.
Peace River director Lisa
Stoner and her husband Kurt
started the refuge 10 years ago
to save exotic animals from
harmful environments, aban-
donment and euthanasia. The
facility rescues these animals
from a variety of unhealthy and
inhumane situations, such as
carnivals and road-side attrac-
tions, over-capacity zoos and
research labs, and from individ-
uals who adopted an animal as a
baby but found it too difficult to
handle and feed as an adult.
It is the only fully-licensed
animal sanctuary accredited by
both the American Sanctuary
Association and World Society
for the Protection of Animals.
There have been many suc-
cesses at the refuge. Zulu, now
a 10-year-old Bengal tiger, was
the first rescue. When surren-
dered, she was an ill and
neglected tiger needing an oper-
ation for a life-threatening ill-
ness. The operation, never per-
formed on a large cat before,
was a success and now Zulu
lives a healthy, happy life at the
refuge.
"It was a huge accomplish-
ment for us to save Zulu and
watch her recover," said Stoner.
"From that point on, our mis-
sion was to help save the lives
of other exotic animals in need,
so we sold our house and
belongings and began this jour-
ney to do just that," she added.
Another success is Elizabeth
Rose, a baby black bear rescued
from Ohio, earlier this year. She
came to them very weak and in
extreme poor health and now
can easily climb the oak tree in
her space.
There are 175 adopted exotic
animals, who require over 450
pounds of food daily, plus sup-
plements, specialties and med-
ical treatment.
The center is still suffering
the effects of hurricanes
Charley, Frances and Jeanne
that knocked down 80 percent
of the trees, damaging habitats.
With only family members and
occasional volunteers and
interns, rehabilitation is slow,
daily care of the big cats, pri-
mates, bears, wolves, bats, an
emu, bison and other animals
taking up much of the day.
As current volunteers and
staff prepare for the seventh
refuge Christmas celebration on
Dec. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m., they
are constructing paper mache'
gifts and "prey" filled with
treats for the tigers, cougars, a
black leopard and a lynx. The
bears and some of the other ani-
mals will receive decorated gift
boxes stuffed with fruit and
treats while the monkeys will
get stockings'filled with good-
ies.
Feel free to visit the sanctu-
ary and spend some time on
hurricane cleanup, or stop out
during the Christmas party and
watch as the animals explore
their gifts. Bring the whole fam-
ily.
For information, check out
www.PeaceRiverRefuge.org or
call 863-735-0804.


toric average for this area is
52.83inches.
According to the University
of Florida Cattle Range Station
in Ona, as of Tuesday, rainfall
in the last week amounted to .09
inches.

and carry insurance as part
of providing for the 20 resi-

With holiday party season
about to arrive, look for dishes
that are simple, can be made
ahead of time and,, above all
else, impress your guests.
Remember sweet and sour
cocktail meatballs? To jog your
memory, think grape jelly and
ketchup. These tiny, tangy
meatballs were staples at get-
togethers throughout the 60s
and 70s. To update the original
recipe, use lean ground turkey
breast in place of beef and
whole-wheat bread instead of
white breadcrumbs. Add some
cooked brown rice to lighten up
the meatballs while providing
some additional fiber and nutri-
ents. Lastly, rather than fry the
hors d'oeurves,bake them. This
not only cuts out calories, but
saves time as well.
For the sauce, cut out the
sugar and corn syrup featured in
the original recipe and use fruit-
sweetened grape spread. If this
isn't available in your area,
low-sugar grape jelly is an
appropriate substitute. Use
chile sauce (most often served
with shrimp cocktail) rather
than ketchup because it is spici-
er and less sweet. To suit
today's penchance for bolder
flavors add chile powder, gin-
ger and a hint of garlic to the
sauce.

Nutrition Notes


THE ITALIAN WAY
WITH EGGS
Both the omelet and the frit-
tata were created by cooks turn-
ing a few basic, humble ingredi-
ents into something desirable.
But comparing the two egg
dishes reveals fundamental dif-
ferences between the French
and Italian styles of cooking. It
even illustrates why people
speak of French "cuisine" but
Italian "cooking."
The classic French omelet
transforms eggs and a filling
(which may be anything from
saut6ed mushrooms to a dollop
of jelly to caviar and sour
cream) into a dish that is ele-
gant in both its simplicity and
precision. Mastering the art of
omelet-making was once the
first step toward becoming a
gourmet cook.
Before even touching the
eggs, the omelet novice would
read a cookbook by Julia Child
or consult Jacques Pepin. The
most serious bought a proper
omelet pan that was used exclu-
sively for the exalted dish.
Cooks practiced, practiced,
practiced to produce the perfect


omelet: a fluffy, golden pillow
folded just so over its chosen
filling, properly runny at its
heart. Even if you aren't aiming
F*r a perfect presentation, it's
easy to make an omelet that is
too firm and dry to be truly
enjoyable.
An Italian frittata, on the
other hand, is a decidedly casu-
al, even rustic dish made in a
frying pan. The eggs bind
together the other ingredients
often vegetables like peppers
and asparagus, or broccoli and
potatoes. Although producing a
perfectly cooked frittata and
getting it out of the pan in one
piece is nice, it is not necessary
Sto enjoy it.

Always be a little kinder
than necessary.

-Sir James M. Barrie

The sense that someone
else cares always helps
because it is the sense of
love.
-George E.
Woodberry


IMPORTANT NOTICE


Dear Hardee County Citizens,


Recently the Board of County Commission

voted to impose impact fees on ALL new con-

struction, businesses and homes.



No one needs to explain the state of the econ-

omy nationally or locally.



Hardee County needs to be in a better bargain-

ing position. We do not have lakes, beaches,

shopping centers or malls to attract new resi-

dents or businesses to our county.



Our County Government has the ability to

postpone impact fees. This will be a great

incentive to invest in Hardee County and enjoy

our wonderful way of life.



Hardee County Commissioners need to lead

the charge with NO IMPACT FEES. No impact

fees will create new businesses, new jobs and

new homes. Results ... increase of ad valorem

tax base, sales tax and increase income for fire

and waste departments!





IT IS TIME FOR HARDEE COUNTY


TO LEAD THE WAY INSTEAD OF


FOLLOWING OTHERS.




If you have any questions or comments please call 863-773-9294

The Hardee Help Center will have a Christmas celebration on
Thursday, Dec. .6, from 3 to 6 p.m. at its future site at Griffin Road
and Green Street, across from the city of Wauchula Public Works
Department.
This is from the funeral folder for Joe Bostick Himrod Sr., 76,
who passed away Sept. 28 An Indian Epitaph written by an
unknown Indian author:
"Do not stand at my grave and weep. I am not there. I do not
sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am a diamond glint of
snow. I am the sunlight on harvest grain. I am the gentle autumn
rain. When you wake in the morning hush ... I am the swift uplift-
ing rush of quiet birds in circling flight. I am the soft starlight at
night."
Carmen B. Matheny passed away on Oct. 30 at age 90. She
and her husband William who was in citrus and real estate, raised
four children.
Marvin is a certified public accountant in Fort Myers. Delores
is a social worker in DeLand. Her twin sister Dorothy is a pre-
school teacher of music in Tallahassee, and Yvonne is a court
reporter in Fort Myers.
Marcus Shackelford said Carmen was a meteorologist, the
1937 Strawberry Queen at the annual Strawberry Festival in
Bowling Green, and worked at First Federal Savings and Loan
Association of Hardee County. "She was a good person, a nice per-
son. In those times you were taught to work, to work hard, the
value of an education. Failure and laziness were first cousins. You
were taught to behave, to be productive and useful, to make a dif-
ference in the lives of the people you came in contact with, the
importance of family, home, church, community activities, to be
the best you can be."
Carmen loved to work in the yard and loved orchids and
African violets. She was a member of First Baptist Church of


TOUCHDOWN!


Wauchula over 52 years. Shackelford said, "No one really dies, as
long as they are remembered."
On her funeral program was the 23rd Psalm "The Lord is
my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green
pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters; He restoreth my
soul. He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's
sake.
"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they
comfort me. Thou prepares a table before me in the presence of
mine enemies; thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth
over.
"Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of
my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever."

Of all the unsolicited mail offers I get, one arrived on Tuesday
that really burned me up. It made me get a little hot.
Neptune Society gave me an offer to win a free cremation. In
case I do not win it, there is an offer to pre-pay for a cremation. The
price is not given.
Neptune said cremation "makes sense because it allows fami-
lies to conduct simple personal services at their own convenience,
is much less expensive and has less impact on the environment.
"Our motto is simple, economical and dignified. With every-
one moving around these days, placing a loved one at a local ceme-
tery may not be as functional as it used to be." Neptune Society
gives a mailing address in Kissimmee, Florida and Rapid City,
South Dakota.
Neptune said cremation can save the cost of embalming, cas-
kets, vaults, markers and cemetery property.
Message to my boys if I drop dead on a camping trip, build
a big campfire and throw my body on it. Take a picture for proof
and bring my ashes back in a minnow bucket or small cooler. That
would be cheaper than what Neptune would charge.
Keep some of my ashes in small jars and scatter the rest in my
favorite places. Where are some of your favorite places? On anoth-
er thought maybe we should revisit some of our favorite places
while we are still alive.
The Dunkin' Donuts building has been finished, landscaped
and parking lot finished. Contrary.to rumors, the business on South
Hwy. 17 will be opening, reported Jimmy Gougler, co-owner of
Mid-Florida Hardware. Reason for the delay- the kitchen equip-
ment and drive-through pilons are on backorder or on a slow boat
from China. We will. give an updated report and date of opening
soon.
A local business owner jokingly said Tuesday, "There are
going to be some mad policemen if that donut shop does not open."

. The health benefits of tea
have been making waves in
newspaper and magazine head-
lines for years. The phytochem-
icals in green tea in particular
have been the focus of much of
the emerging research. With all
the buzz surrounding tea -
including its potential role in
cancer prevention I started
thinking about ways to con-
sume more.


Increasing the variety is one
answer. Today, doing that is
particularly easy, since super-
markets offer aisles full of
choices. Green tea can be found
flavored with mint, orange,
even lemongrass. That's a far
cry from the days when there
were only a handful of choices,
and mostly black teas at that.
Americans are also notorious
for serving the traditionally hot


beverage over ice.
There are precedents for
using tea in dishes. Most are
ethnic and some are even
ancient. Tea eggs are a good
example. Chinese cooks make
these decadent treats by hard-
cooking eggs, cracking their
shells and simmering them for
up to eight hours in a cocktail of
tea, soy sauce, cinnamon and

his duties at the Nov. 11 service.
Having pastored churches for
18 years before going into the

last 15 years, "I knew I was
coming 'home' when I found
myself sitting in the end-zone
eating boiled peanuts at a
Hardee Wildcat game," said
Pastor Ken, as he is greeted by
many of his parishioners.
A pastor search committee
chaired by Doyle Carlton III
spent six months "seeking
God's will and leadership"
before recommending Smith to
the congregation on Sept. 2.
Other members of the commit-
tee were Marcus Shackelford,
Efran Schraeder, Pam Carlton,
Kathy Walker, Kathy Crawford
and Dr. Sylvia Collins.
Rev. Smith and his wife

gregation voted unanimously to
call him, and held a barbecue
dinner and reception after the
morning service.
The couple has been .married


for 43 years. They were high
school sweethearts at Starkville
High. Daughter Karen is mar-
ried to Alan Permeter and they
have three children, Daniel 9,
Caroline 5 and baby David. Son
David is married to Julie and
has two children, Alexis and
Brooke.
His fulltime evangelism min-
istry for the past 15 years was
centered in Leesburg. He is a
past state president of the
Fellowship of Christian Ath-
letes, chaplain for the Florida
State Seminoles and the Uni-
versity of South Carolina
Gamecocks and was chairman
of the state board of the Florida
Baptist Convention and on the
board of trustees of the Florida
Baptist Children's Home. He is
also past president of the
Vocational Evangelist in
Florida and Georgia.
He is the author of "Lay
Renewal, It Ought To Be Joy," a
book published for the church's
Home Mission Board.
He averaged over 30 meet-
ings a year in youth camps in
Georgia and North Carolina
along with the Fellowship of
Christian Athletes, and staff
evangelist at First- Baptist
Church of Leesburg. Previously
he served as staff evangelist at
Starkville First Baptist Church,
Newnan (Ga.) First Baptist
Church, and Northside Baptist


Church in Columbia, S. C.
Between 1974 and 1992 he
served as pastor at First Baptist
Church of Pompano Beach,
Covenant Baptist Church of
Gainesville, Fellowship Baptist
Church of Tallahassee, First
Baptist Church of Miami and
Killarney Baptist Church of
Winter Park.
He obtained a bachelor's
degree in religion and commu-
nication from Baylor
University in Waco, Texas in
1965, added a master's in reli-
gious education from Southern
Baptist Seminary in Louisville,
Ky. in 1972 and a graduate spe-
cialist degree from Mississippi

Rise & Shine.
By Ted Simonson

DOORMATS
Someone asked me the other day if I knew any Scriptures that
would instruct her on how to be a submissive wife without becom-
ing a "doormat." This is like asking how to love God without
"going overboard" and obeying Him in everything. There is some-
thing lacking in the question.
The inquirer has in mind fences, border lines, rules and regu-
lations that she thinks would protect her in case she were taken
advantage of. She doesn't understand that marriage is fundamen-
tally a love relationship. Love gives itself in abandonment and
doesn't "keep score."
Such a relationship would be impossible unless God Himself
had not shown us so clearly what it is like in the life and death
of His Son. We are commanded to adopt the same attitude as the
One "who, being in a very nature God, did not consider equality
with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, tak-
ing the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and
became obedient to death, even death, even death on a cross!",
(Philippians 2:6-8)
Think of it! God has enabled us if we will agree to it to
adopt the same attitude as Jesus! But who wants, to do it? It means,
accepting a humility most folks shrink from! :
So, the real issue is this: do you really want to.love like Jesus
loved, wholeheartedly and sacrificially? It is possible but not if
you are worrying about becoming a "doormat"!


Think and speak the beautiful only.

Fish Busters
S*" .By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission
-

FLORIDA STILL REIGNS SUPREME AS
FISHING CAPITAL OF THE WORLD
Florida cannot be beat as the No. 1 place to cast a line, pitch a
lure or land a lunker. No tall fisher's tale here this title has been
earned, according to a survey by the U.S. Census Bureau.
Every five years the Census Bureau conducts the "National
Survey of Fishing, Hunting and Wildlife-Associated Recreation."
This survey is the gold standard for comparing outdoor recreation-
al activities between the states. Once again it proves that Florida is
the number-one fishing destination, according to the 2006 results.
The facts tell where anglers go for the best fishing opportuni-
ties. Florida provided 46.3 million days of recreational fishing in
2006 versus 41.1 million days in Texas, the second-highest state.
Of fishing days spent in Florida, 4.8 million days were by tourists
(nonresidents), while Wisconsin, the second-highest state for
tourist days, provided 3.8 million days. In terms of nonresident
anglers, Florida is also number one with 885,000, versus No. 2
North Carolina with less than half that at 395,000.
But the story does not end there. Overall, Florida again ranked
first in number of fishing participants age 16 and older with 2.77
million. Runner-up Texas had 2.53 million participants. However,
in 2001 Florida had 3.10 million anglers, so there has been a
decline of approximately 11 percent over five years, according to
these estimates.
If you look at the decline as a percentage of the population,
which has been rapidly increasing, the percent decline is a little
more dramatic. In 2001, national rates were 16 percent, and in
Florida 17 percent of the population fished. Those rates dropped to
13 percent nationally and to 14 percent in the Sunshine State in
2006. On the positive side, the number of fishing days per angler
has increased nationally, with the average angler fishing 17 days
out of the year in 2006.
Anglers in Florida spent $4.4 billion in 2006, allowing Florida
to claim another No. I spot as the place where anglers spend the
most money. The Lone Star State was second-best with $4.3 bil-
lion spent on fishing. Recreational fishing dollars helped to support
75,068 jobs in Florida, again making it No. 1, with Texas trailing
behind with 58,938 jobs. This economic trend is great news for
Florida, partially because state and local taxes from the sale of fish-
ing-related goods and services generated $441 million for general
funds.
In spite of the national estimates of fishing participation for all
U.S. anglers (does not include foreign anglers) over 16 years of age
decreasing, actual fishing license sales for both freshwater and salt-
water 'have increased in Florida. From 2001-02, with 1,070,577
licenses sold to 2006-07 with 1,188,092, there was an increase of
11 percent in sales of saltwater licenses. Freshwater license sales
increased, from 587,413 sold in 2001-02 to 630,078 in 2006-07,
showing an increase of 7 percent. Although not enough to keep
pace with the population increase, it is certainly better than com-
peting states.
.In calendar year 2006, the National Survey estimated 2.77 mil-
lion anglers fished in Florida, and during fiscal year 2006-07 (July
1 to June 30), 1.55 million fishing licenses were sold. This dis-
crepancy is partially the result of seniors (age 65 and older), resi-
ident saltwater shoreline anglers and several other groups, including
those fishing from licensed saltwater piers or charter boats, being
exempt from licensing.
No one can dispute the facts and figures.. Florida remains the
Fishing Capital of the World because of great resources and
responsible management. With a huge variety of fish, fishing
waters and fishing styles to choose from, along with year-round
fishing weather, there is little doubt that Florida will remain the
plac^ to go.fisbig, <.Yqu;,caq help ensure a vibrant,future with high
quilty, sustainable and safe"fishing opportunities by being an eth-
ical angler., mentritoing.a youth or friend and keeping your license
current.

MORE ABOUT GRANDDADDY HENDRY
Writing about my Granddaddy last week brought back a lot of
memories. According to the genealogy records he was born in 1881
and was one of 17 siblings. He married Emma Shuman in 1903, but
she died before I was born.
Later on Granddaddy married Emma's sister Essie. We all
called her Aunt Essie, and she was a saint. All she ever did in her
life was whatever Pa wanted. She took incredible care of him, and
I remember she made the best pumpkin pie in the world without
crust. It didn't need crust because it was so firm. It was always
made with fresh pumpkin, and she made it that way because "Pa",
as she called him, "liked it that way".
Their old house still stands, and somebody is living there now
on Stenstrom Road next to Benny Albritton's barn. It was built like
a lot of cracker houses and had a dog walk, but it was never used
as a dog walk because it was closed in on each end. However, there
was a long hall that was about 8 feet wide and ran all the way
through the middle of the house. The front end didn't have walls
and that was the front porch which expanded into a living room as
wide as the house.
The back porch had a pitcher pump. I will always remember
how good that soft water tasted from the pitcher pumps on my
Granddaddy Hendry's back porch and on Grandmother Smith's
back porch.
A long time after they got electricity and electric pumps all
those people would still drink water from the pitcher pumps. That
was because the wells were shallow, the water was cool and had a
wonderful flavor, without the sulfur that we have to deal with in
Florida today.
I mentioned last week that I never recalled Granddaddy rais-
ing his voice to any of us and I never heard of him whippin' any of
us, but then I remembered just one occasion and I will never forget
that.
I have a cousin who was absolutely the cutest little girl, and
she was Granddaddy's darling. He was always prejudiced toward
her, but one day she just walked up to him and unzipped his britch-
es. I am sure it was the humiliation and embarrassment because, all
of a sudden, he picked her up and gave her a good whippin'. With
all the things she ever did in her life she never unzipped
Granddaddy's britches again.
When Aunt Essie died and left Pa alone I was a teenager in
high school, and my parents gave me a very special assignment. It
seemed like a chore to a teenager, but it was one experience I will
remember forever. I was chosen to go live with Granddaddy.
That meant I had to get up when Granddaddy got up and go to
bed when Granddaddy went to bed. That really didn't quite fit my
teen years. I went to live with him but was still under the auspices
of my parents who were in town.
We both went to bed about 7:30 in the evening, then
Granddaddy would wake me up about 4:30 in the morning, and he
always had breakfast on the table. I would eat breakfast with him
then go to town in time to wake my parents up. They usually got
up at 5:30 so daddy could be at work by 7 o'clock. Obviously it
was a very disciplined time in my life because my biological clock
had nothing to do with how Granddaddy ran things.
There was something unique about living with him, because
every night Granddaddy listened to preaching on the radio. He
would sit by the hour with his Bible on his lap, along with a writ-
ing pad and a pen or pencil, listening to whoever was preaching on
the radio.
The really neat thing about it was Granddaddy would argue
with the preachers. I don't think he ever completely agreed with


many of them. If he did he would say "Amen." If he didn't he
would pick up his Bible, flip to a scripture, start reading it out loud
and arguing with the preacher on the radio.
After I went to college, my parents anticipated what would
happen, and they built an apartment on the side of our home on
Heard Bridge Road. Daddy told me one time that was the best thing
he ever did in his life, when he moved Granddaddy to town to live
with them.
After I became a Sunday School teacher and started studying
the Bible on a regular basis, I have often wondered if I will ever
know it like Granddaddy did, especially with my waning ability to
retain and remember things today. I was truly blessed to have such
a wonderful teacher, mentor and wise old man who served God all
his life my Granddaddy Hendry.

Inspiration Point "
By Rick Leland
Pastor & Columnist


WHO CARES IF HE DROWNS?
"Hey, Rick, this is Peter," the answering-machine message
said. "I just thought you would like to know that one of your sheep
is drowning across the street."
His message needed no further explanation: "Your sheep" -
Anthony,.a friend who I have attempted to guide away from alco-
hol's destructive grip. "Across the street" a bar. "Drowning" -
intoxicated.
Anthony and I had spoken less than four hours before, arrang-
ing a ride for him to church the next day.
I loathe alcohol.
Is all drinking of alcohol wrong, a sin? Drinking is present
occasionally in the Bible in the "it's-OK" category. More pro-
nounced, though, are the many stern biblical warnings and com-
mands in the "be-not-drunk" category.
For me, I don't drink.
I don't drink because I constantly see its destruction in indi-
viduals, families and communities. I refuse to partner with that
destruction.
Sure, I drive by that billboard. Wow, those women with the
beers in their hands, aren't they pretty? And those big smiles; they
must be very happy. I see that sign on the beer truck, "Crisp, Clean,
Refreshing."
Anthony didn't attend church the next day. But his answering-
machine message said: "I'm sorry I didn't make it to church; I was
sick. Call me." Hmm, the billboard and truck-sign promises didn't
work no refreshing smile for Anthony.
Does anyone really want his life to align with this Bible verse?
"Drunkenness, carousing and the like; I warn you, just as I did
before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of
God."
Listen, I'm not telling you not to drink. But could you help me
gather a few sheep who might be drowning? And make sure you
inherit the kingdom of God.
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.
His favorite Bible verse comes from 1 John 1:4, "These things we
write that our joy may be complete." His column is published in
nearly 150 newspapers nationwide.
Disobedience, the rarest and most courageous of the
virtues, is seldom distinguished from neglect, the laziest
and commonest of the vices.
-George Bernard Shaw


THE SHINY NEW PURPLE BICYCLE
I was lost in a world of canned vegetables when my 17-year-
old daughter approached me, her face as serious as a heart attack. I
knew what was behind her solemn countenance: We were in Wal-
Mart and she had just over $100 in her pocket but no idea what to
blow it on.
I dragged my attention away from the nutrition label on sweet
peas and sighed, "Yes?"
"I'm thinking about buying a bike," Jenny blurted.
"Well, that's a good investment," I said.
"You think I should buy it?"
"Why not?"
I had reached the frozen-foods section when I heard the unmis-
takable tick . tick . tick of the gears on a 10-speed, and turned
to see Jenny coming down the aisle pushing a great purple touring
bike, with thick tires and a wide flat seat.
"You did it!"
"Yep!" She'flapped the receipt like a little white flag.
"Well, I think you'll be glad."
That weekend the bicycle had no less than 100 miles put on it,
as Jenny and her sister, Jillian, took turns trying it out.
"You really ought to ride it, Mom," Jenny insisted.
"I don't know. I'll try it one day," I promised. Translation: I'll
try it when you aren't around to watch me fall off of it, and subse-
quently laugh and make fun of me.
This day came less than a week later when I found myself at
home alone with the posh purple pedaler. I sat there staring at the
inviting black and white striped seat, and the next thing I knew, I
was astraddle it and putting one foot hesitantly on one of the ped-
als.
"Here goes . ." I muttered, and applied gentle pressure to the
pedal.
The bike responded like a 3-year-old stallion and shot forward.
I gripped the handlebars and giggled like a kid. After a few wob-
bles, I was off. Like they say,, once you learn you never forget.
I headed north to Cortez Road and then east toward 75th
Street. The bike literally flew along the bike path, almost pedaling


itself. Once I found my rhythm there was no stopping me; I went
faster and faster, my hair whipping out behind me, trees and road
signs flashing past in a dizzying blur.
I couldn't remember the last time I had felt so free, and literal-
ly had to force myself to remember I needed to turn around and go
back.
It was when I made the turnaround on the bike path that the
wind hit me in the face like a fist. Suddenly I understood why it had
been so easy to travel as far as I had. It had not been my skill or the
merits of the new bike, but a steady tailwind that had been virtual-
ly pushing me along the bike path.
Now it had become a deadly headwind.
The light at 119th Street seemed to be 50 miles away, only a
tiny red speck in the distance. I bore down on the pedals, fighting
the wind and traveling inches per second rather than feet.
"Oh, Lord, what have I done?" I muttered.
I sifted through -my memory searching for an answer and
remembered that as a child, I would stand on the pedals and use my
body weight to help propel myself forward. I stood on the pedals
and pushed down with my left foot, but lacked the coordination and
strength to reciprocate with the other foot, so I basically traveled
about six inches and stopped dead on a dime.
I got off and walked. Got on and semi-rode. I cussed the wind
and bikes and life in general. Drivers in cars passed, completely
unaware of the epic battle that was taking place between a woman,
a purple bike and the east wind. Eventually I made it home, out of
breath, shaking and whining.
The one redeeming fact was that the girls weren't home to see
me collapse on the couch, gasping like a fish out of water and trem-
bling all over.
Since that day, I keep a better rein on the distance I travel. And
I never fail to step outside first, wet my finger and hold it in the air.
Checking the wind . just in case.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Look at what I've done for
you today. I've placed in front
of you a choice Life and
Good, Death and Evil And
I command you today: Love
God, your God. Walk in His
ways. Keep His command-
ments, regulations and rules
so that you will live, live exu-
berantly, blessed by God,
your God.
Deuteronomy 3:15-16a (ME)
FRIDAY
For at the very time we were
powerless, then Christ died
for the wicked. Even for a
just man one of us would
hardly die; though perhaps
for a good man one might
actually brave death; but
Christ died for us while we
were yet sinners, and that is
God's own proof of His love
towards us.
Romans 5:6-8 (NEB)

Heavens and earth, be
happy: Mountains, shout
with joy, because the Lord

But you, dear friends, must

(Jesus said), "I have told you

than this that a man

His friends. You are My
friends, if you do what I tell
you to do."

12B The Herald-Advocate, November 29, 2007


It's easy for holiday shoppers
to "green up" their gifts. Eco-
friendly shopping is more popu-
lar than ever and a unique gift
that also says you care in a huge
way about the world around
you is a manatee adoption from
Save the Manatee Club.
A $25 gift adoption includes
a photo and life history of a real
Florida manatee, a certificate of
adoption, plus a fact-filled
membership handbook and free
shipping. Four printed newslet-
ters and six e-newsletters are
sent throughout the year.
Or for $35, new members
who adopt a manatee will also
receive a free 24" x 12" full-
color 2008 wall calendar featur-
ing gorgeous manatee photos
(while supplies last). A person-
alized holiday message is
offered with each adoption.
Andrea Lamberth from
southern California adopted
manatees for her daughter
Shayla and her son Devin last
year as one of their Hanukkah
gifts. "It was the best gift I've
ever given them," says Andrea.
"They didn't know what to
make of the adoption envelopes
at first, but when they opened
them up, and I explained that I
had adopted "Whiskers" for"
Shayla and "Flash" for Devin,
they were both thrilled. Gifts
often come and go and get


pushed into some corner after
an hour of play, but that didn't
happen with the manatee gift
adoptions."
There are 32 manatees to
choose from in the Club's three
Florida adoption programs at
Blue Spring State Park near
Orange City, Homosassa
Springs Wildlife State Park in
Homosassa, and in the Tampa
Bay area.
Both Whiskers and Flash,
who Andrea chose to adopt for
her children, are Blue Spring
adoptees. The newest addition
to the Blue Spring Adopt-A-
Manatee program is Georgia,
although she's been a regular,
popular visitor at this state park
for many years now. Rescued as
a calf in 1991 by SeaWorld in
Orlando, Georgia was then
released back into the wild six
years later at Blue Spring.
She has given birth to a num-
ber of calves over the years, in-
cluding Peaches and Macon.
She was also a foster mom to a
yearling named John and has
since become a grandmother.
Georgia is full of personality
and was once spotted barreling
down the spring run with her
flippers wrapped around a pair
of jeans! Though Georgia loves
being around people, hu-
man/manatee interactions can
prove deadly.


"Wild manatees need to stay
wild in order to survive in
Florida's dangerous, busy wat-
erways," explains Patrick Rose,
executive director of Save the
Manatee Club. "Many mana-
tees are injured or killed by
watercraft every year, and since
this is the leading known cause
of their mortality, it's important
that manatees remain shy or
wary of people and boats."
Around 3,000 manatees exist
in Florida waters today, and
they are listed as endangered by
the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Ser-
vice. Funds from Save the
Manatee Club's adoption pro-
grams go toward education and
conservation, manatee research,
rescue and rehabilitation ef-
forts, and advocacy and legal
action. In 1981, singer/song-
writer Jimmy Buffett and for-
mer Florida Gov. and U.S. Sen.
Bob Graham founded the club,
a membership-based, national
nonprofit organization.
Many people, like Andrea
Lamberth, are looking for gift
alternatives that bring them
closer to nature. To adopt a
manatee this holiday season,

at 500 N. Maitland Ave.,
Maitland, FL 32751, call 1-800-

Lady 'Cai
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
While everyone else was on
vacation, Hardee girls basket-
ball played a pair of games last
week.
The varsity split its games
with Braden River and Lake
Placid, while the JV picked up
its first two victories of the
young season.
This week the girls hosted
Palmetto on Tuesday and greet
S Sebring tomorrow (Friday). JV
games are at 6 p.m. and the var-
sity immediately thereafter,
about 7:30.
Next week's games are
Tuesday at Avon Park, and Fri-
day home for a visit from Sara-
sota Booker. The first season
wraps up with a visit from Fort
Meade on Dec. 12, one from
DeSoto on Dec. 14 and the last
from Braden River on Dec. 17.
The Hardee girls went to
Braden River last Monday. The
varsity Lady Wildcats battled in
a 44-38 loss. The game was tied
10-10 after one quarter and 16-
16 at the half. Braden River
picked up a four-point advan-
tage in the third stanza and
another two points in the fourth.
Lady Pirate Brianna Dowling
was high for her team with 11
points. Lady Wildcat senior
Gloria Solis was the game's
-high scorer with 14 points,
including 10 in the fourth quar-
ter.

two points. Lindy Rossman,
Erica Ureste, Naomi Alvarado,'
Katie Jernigan and Janisha
Mosley contributed to the floor
game.
Earlier in the evening, the
Hardee JV downed Braden
River 28-18. Carleen Brown led
the Hardee contingent in scor-
ing. The balanced scoring
included four points apiece by
Lacey Garza and Paige Massey,
three points by Yesenia Vargas,
two points by Lacreshia
Carlton, Ashley Louis and
Maria Avalos and one-of-two at
the free throw line for Elvira
Servin. Also getting in playing
time were Maria Ruiz, Ashley
Smith, Tiffany Prestridge,
Lauren Moore and Amanda
Bissette.
Last Tuesday, the Hardee
girls traveled to Lake Placid,
with both Lady Wildcat teams
pocketing victories.
The varsity Lady 'Cats
defeated the Lady Panthers 33-
20 behind the shooting of senior
center Parkinson with 10 points
and junior Holmes with the
game-high 13 points. Holmes
nailed a pair of treys, trio of
deuces and one-of-two at the
charity stripe.
Other girls in the scoring col-
umn were Solis with four
points, Alvarado and Mosely
with two apiece and Ureste and

A woman in Lansing, Michigan,
hasn't changed the light bulb on
her front porch in thirty-four years.
The bulb's still burning and is
expected to burn for a while longer.
In His Sermon on the Mount, the
Lord said to His followers, "Let your
light so shine before men, that they
may see your good works, and
glorify your Father, who is in
heaven."
The deeds of the Christian must
be not only correct, but charming;
not only good. but gracious. And
they're to draw attention not to
yourself, but to your Savior.
Everything you do, and say, and
are, is to be for God's glory.
Are you glorifying God?


Add one more thing to a stacked sink of dirty dishes and you might
find yourself on your knees picking up the broken pieces! Maybe it
would be best to clean-up more often, before it gets out of control.
Is your life piled too high with unsolved problems? Most of us feel
that way every once in awhile. Instead of waiting for the pile to grow,
why not try a different approach? Ask God for help before the problems
get overwhelming. We don't have to "clean-up" all by ourselves; what a
relief!
God promises His help, all we have to do is ask, "And everyone who
calls on the name of the Lord will be saved..." (Joel 2:32), Visit God's
house and learn how to lean on Him...before your problems get plied
too high.

HAY THERE!


November 29, 2007, The Herald-Advocate 3C

Pioneer Creek RV News
By Edna Bell & Reggie DeSmet.


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
These round bales of hay were photographed on Friday north of SR 64, east of Zolfo
Springs. Hay is generally packed into large round bales or small rectangular bales and
used to feed cattle and horses during the winter, when most grasses do not grow. The
hay is generally supplemented with minerals to keep cattle and horses healthy. Horses
usually eat grains as well.

A Friend's Tribute To Joe Bostick Himrod


Joe Himrod Eulogy
Respectfully delivered on Oct.2, 2007
It is an honor to have this privilege of standing here today
speaking about the life of Joe Bostick Himrod. Expounding is what
Joe would call this, and he loved to expound and to listen to
expounding. He is listening and he will be expounding.
As the obituary stated he was born to Charles Himrod ai::.
"Erie" Bostick Himrod in 1930. Joe attended Hardee High School.
He was an athlete and an original member of our current Key Club.
He attended Boys' State. He attended the University of Florida for
a time, but he knew more than any of the professors so he came
home and married his only love, "ah hah," Johnna Mae Cathcart in
1950 ("ah hah" was an affectionate name given by the children).
He worked for '.Green's Fuel" while starting his citrus opera-
tion. He became a pilot with his own landing strip, a well driller
and a carpenter. Growing oranges was his delight and ultimate pro-
fession. Unraveling the past to understand the future was his pas-
sion.
I really got to know Joe Himrod as a young nurseryman when
he paid me a visit one day with Jobie. They were contemplating
Jobie's future and career options. We were discussing college, cit-
rus and ornamental nursery directions, and of course I was pro
"formal education."
"Get that education from a good institution" was my advice.
You see, I did not understand about home schooling at the time, and
I certainly didn't understand about studying life, while going
through life. There is no doubt that attending Himrod University
would be one of the most prestigious educations available to Jobie,
and all of us that knew Joe took some courses there.
I cannot recall anyone ever speaking unkindly of Joe Himrod.
He was universally appreciated for his kindness and generosity to
others and absolutely respected for his genius. He was hungry to
understand things . anything mechanical, electrical, social or
political. He was for me the ultimate pundit (or expert).
Intensely dedicated to knowing and understanding his family's
genealogy, Joe had always been intrigued with the process of
unraveling his family roots. All of his children, but especially
Marsha and his wife Johnna Mae spent hours, weeks and eventual-
ly years chronicling both of the Himrod and Bostick family trees.
"In Search of Aaron, A Himrod Genealogy" most appropriate-
ly describes Joe Himrod as follows: "His independent pioneering
spirit was nourished by dreams of living in an earlier era. Since no
time machine could take him back, the next best thing was to live
it through researching the life of his ancestors. The physical neces-
sity of visiting where they had lived, touching, seeing, smelling the
land; viewing the mountains, rivers, streams, flowers, trees and
places made it almost real. Reading their words and descriptions


made visualization more coi "'. Factual records provided the
map for him to follow. The seaici, provided a vent for exploring his
personal psyche."
To Joe, if it was old, it was gold. The art of making cane syrup,
not just goinL norough the process but seeking perfection was very
indicative of his character. Long after the world had settled on
"Aunt Jemima Syrup," Joe continued to press sugar cane into
syrup.
Oh, the fun and intrigue of watching the heat source evolve
from the preferred "lighter" wood fire, though inferior combustion
sources of oak and pine slabs from local ladder mills to LP gas
burners. Newer cultivars of sugar cane were imported to improve
the flavor. Fire boxes were built and rebuilt.
Caldrons were tried and discarded and finally he settled on a
large copper pot because of its heat-dispersing capabilities but
not just any pot. It started with a flat 4' by 8' piece of copper, and
then cut into precise geometric shapes, hammered, tediously and
accurately into perfectly formed sections of a pot and then welded
together. The final product would have been coveted by earlier pio-
neers making cane syrup.
Then there was the satellite dish. When Joe found out he could
actually build a device to receive signals from outer space he built
large pie-shaped elliptical mold to form the pieces of his satellite
dish ultimately made of fiberglass. He could have made the receiv-
er.
But back to the past and his life, his crowning creative
achievement, his ultimate physical creation would have to be the
Cowee Valley Grist Mill. It should be preserved as a monument to
his genius along with the good friendship of folks around Franklin
such as the Gregory and the Wallace (Cowee Valley) families.
Hunting or just experiencing the "wildness" of the woods was
Joe's real hobby. He liked guns, maybe not with the fascination of
Malone (Himrod), and he liked bows and arrows but not quite with
the intensity of Jobie and Aaron (son and grandson).
More than that, Joe Himrod loved the passionate obsessive-
ness of others. Some things need to be said . some things need
to be created . some things need to be done. Joe appreciated
those who pursued saying ... and creating ... and doing.
Evidence of these attributes exists in each of the children-
Marsha, the family watch dog, the oldest sibling intensely dedi-
cated to research; Jobie, the male sibling and the ultimate imple-
menter and caretaker of the plan; supervised by Joni, quintessential
mom and house doctor; inspired by Patrice, the persistent instiga-
tor/motivator "come on y'all and let's get going" youngest member
of the family.
Grist mills, wind mills, cane mills and flywheels. He con-
quered them all mechanically and intellectually, and the rest of us
~ i


just marveled.
Wine maker, hog farmer, poultry expert, peacock experi-
menter, Airedale lover, electronics technician, machinist, carpenter,
well driller, mechanic, nurseryman . they all describe bits and
pieces, of Joe Himrod.
He loved his children, and he dearly loved his wife.
He loved to eat. Maybe I should say that again. He really loved
to eat and drink tea. He loved to laugh. He loved to smile.
For the family he was father, father-in-law, grandfather, great
grandfather, cousin, uncle or husband. For me he was my friend.
On December 25, 1985, the International Star Registry redes-
ignated a star number to the name "Himrod's Hidden Star." Joe.
pulled out a telescope one evening and showed me that star. There
were millions of them up there, big ones, little ones, bright ones
and dim ones. How did I know it was the right star? Because Joe
told me it was. And I never doubted it.
Other than his health problems in the latter years Joe had two
nemesing, nagging issues in his life .. the dadgum freezes and
government intrusion. He griped from time to time about the unco-
operative reality of Mother Nature, and he frequently ranted and
raved about government intrusiveness in his affairs.
And we loved it (the ranting and griping). We loved him, and
we will all miss him.
That night, though, when he showed me that star, I asked him
for his prognostication on the universe, we loved that word and we
loved to prognosticate (about the past and the future). But I pressed
on, standing there in his driveway, on what all this vast universe
meant, and he said to me: "He is big". . and I knew and he knew
I knew, from where he drew his abilities.
Paraphrasing an anonymous saying I learned 30 years ago: No
one would tell me where my soul might be; I searched for God but
he eluded me; I sought my friend out and found all three.
I know the sojourner soul of Joe Himrod, just like Aaron,
excited, exploring, investigating, while riding a celestial swamp
buggy has already been to Himrod's Hidden Star.
He's had a meal of wild game and fresh vegetables with Pap
(Bostick), a cigar with Wildcat (Hale Himrod), a prayer with
Hartsele, a good lecture with Hollerhorn (Jack Himrod), expound-
ed with Beasie (Malone Himrod Sr.) and can now prognosticate
and expound about all the mysteries of the past and the future with
his Creator (He is big).
Thank you Lord for touching our lives with this wholesome,
good man.

Your friend forever,
Bill Lambert
Wauchula

HELPING HANDS IN TOUGH TIMES
I followed the television camera as it helped a California
woman retrace the steps to what had been her home, now a smol--
dering ruin in the wake of the recent fires. A refugee for two days
in an evacuation center, she had returned only an hour earlier.
Through tearful eyes she looked at the worn-out blanket she held
in her hands.
"We found this on our front lawn," she told the reporter. "Or
what used to be our front lawn," she added with a bittersweet smile.
"And what do you think we found inside? A dozen pictures, still in
their frames. Our parents, our children, the two of us . all our
important family memories. That's all we have left right now. And
somebody went to the trouble of saving them for us. Some fire-
fighter, probably, who saw that he couldn't save our house, but did
what he could to save us a few memories, and made sure we'd find
them. Isn't that something?"
It sure is. We're hearing a lot of these stories these days, sto-
ries about people helping people come through trying times. It's
too bad that most stories like them seem to surface as a response to
major tragedies of one sort or another, but maybe that's the way
human nature works. In any event, it's still goqd to hear them, and
they come along at a time of the year when we can use all the good
news we can get.
The fire-related stories aren't unlike those connected to the
aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, with volunteers from all over the
country still answering the call to help rebuild New Orleans and
other hard-hit Gulf Coast communities. And we still hear tales of
the "people helping people" spirit generated by 9/11. Just the other
day I heard of a barber whose shop was uncomfortably near the
Twin Towers' collapse. He wanted to close it that day and join the
throng running and walking toward Midtown, but kept it open so
that long lines of ash-covered survivors, their cell phones all inop-
erative, could use his telephone to let families know they were OK.
Much of the volunteer activity in Southern California took
place in Qualcomm Stadium, normally the home of the San Diego
Chargers, which temporarily housed some 10,000 fire evacuees.
One reporter described it as "an oasis of order." If that was indeed
the case, it was probably due to an army of volunteers who provid-


ed everything from free massages to kosher food.
In his story in "The New York Times," Solomon Moore
described the scene: "Hundreds of volunteers and city workers
stacked up towers of pizza boxes, water bottles and blankets.
Steaming cups of coffee were on offer ... A clown twisted balloons
for children, several autism specialists were available to give par-
ents of disabled children a break, and an electric guitarist jammed
with his speaker turned low."
(. The whole scene was almost too much for a visitor from
Shanghai, who couldn't get over the orderly manner in which the
evacuation proceeded, and the kindness of donors and other volun-
teers at the stadium itself.
"This kind of thing would never happen in China," she said.
Maybe it doesn't happen here as much as it should, either. But
maybe, too, all the good things that happen in the wake of emer-
gencies could become a kind of example and we somehow decid-
ed to act that way all the time. A pipe dream, maybe. But wouldn't
it be great?

Cops For Christ
By Sgt. Barry L. Schnable
Hardee County Sheriff's Associate Chaplain


SURRENDER OR DIE
Surrender? Never! Especially cops right'?
We never surrender, we are taught never to give up our
weapons, for if we do we will surely die. Well, that's true in a
worldly sense, not a spiritual one.
In a spiritual sense we are to surrender our lives to Christ!
Though usually we do not. We surrender only when it's convenient
for us and then we make deals with God. OK, God if you get me
this job then I'll go to church for a whole month, but Sundays, only
not Wednesdays. OK, if we can't get the $200,000 house, then the
$100,000 one will be OK. If you take away this sickness I swear
I'll read the Bible every night and so on, and so on.
This is NOT surrendering, it's bargaining. God doesn't want to
bargain with you He wants you to give Him your life ALL of it!
We are so concerned with being in control of our lives and the plans
we make for our futures, but what most people do not understand
is that to live a peace-filled life we must give our lives to Christ.
Just like the struggles I wrote about with my daughter, I final-
ly had to realize that I couldn't change what was happening or
make anything I wanted to happen in the future happen. I had to
give it to God. I knelt down and said God I can't do this, i'm not
strong enough. I give it to you, you are my Master and the only one
who has power over everything. I give it to you and so far it is
working out pretty good. It hasn't gone away by any means of the
imagination, but it is getting better. And in doing this I didn't just
walk away and leave my daughter alone I just simply let God take
over and let Him be in control instead of me trying to control
everything.
You see, God is the pilot not the co-pilot. If we don't turn over
the controls to God we will surely die, for without His direction we
will crash and burn. It is hard to surrender, we are taught all
through life never to give up and that if we do we are weak, but
with God we are gaining strength not suffering weaknesses. We are
giving our lives to the Creator of the universe and because we sutr-
render to Him, we NOW can experience all His power and great-
ness.
Stop arguing with God, stop bargaining, just admit you can't
do it without Him. We all have screwed up our lives in one way or
another and usually make it worse when we try to fix it. So instead
of making a bigger mess, give it to Someone who is all knowing
and all powerful to straighten it out. He will then direct you in how
to fix it and how to avoid doing it again. And through His great
gifts and blessing that come from surrendering, be thankful to Him
everyday that he blesses you.
Think about it if someone asks you how your day was and
you say "Oh,-it was OK, nothing really new, just same old stuff'-
WOW! That's great, what a blessed day you had yea it was -
I wasn't stuck in awful traffic, I didn't get in trouble at work, I did-
n't feel sick or have a headache, no bad reports from school about
my children, my family is all OK and we are about to sit down to
a wonderful meal man just an ordinary day right? NO just an
absolutely blessed day!
Pick yourself up, get those troubles off your back and give it
all to God, stand up straight and do whatever He tells you to do (I
mean really He just took all your burdens you should really do
whatever He asks you to do, don't you think? Some of us have
do pretty big burdens) don't choose death choose Life and sur-
render to Christ. God bless you and all that you do.

Fear is a cloak which old men huddle about their love, as
if to keep it warm. "

Well Football Fans, it is said that good things come to those
who wait. This old football fan and West Virginia grad has waited
58 years to see the Mountaineers win a National Championship.
On Jan. 7, I will get that chance. Here is hoping the
Mountaineers don't disappoint. The Mountaineers have played the
polls like a track star in the mile run and have made their move in
the last lap. The last stretch will be beating rival Pitt in the
"BackYard Brawl". Then, it's ON TO NEW ORLEANS!
Who will face West Virginia for the National Championship?
That question will be answered this coming weekend. The Big 12
Championship Game will determine the other half of the equation.
If Oklahoma defeats Missouri, Ohio State could be propelled back
to the title game. If Missouri wins, the Tigers will face the
Mountaineers. A Missouri-West Virginia matchup would pit two
great offenses against each other. Pat White and Chase Daniel are
leaders at QB with different styles. Missouri boasts a better passing
game while WVU's rushing attack is unstopable. The last time
these teams met was the Insight Bowl in 1998 with Missouri beat-
ing WVU 34-31. The Mountaineers had beaten the Tigers 35-3 in
1993 and 34-10 in 1994.
The Heisman Trophy Race seems to be leaning to Tim Tebow.
The commentators have been pushing the Gator QB hard despite
Darren McFadden's heroics against LSU. Pat White, who now has
rushed for over 1,000 for the season and over 3,000 in his three-
year career at WVU, isn't getting as much love from the talking
heads as he deserves either. Missouri QB Chase Daniel and Oregon
QB Dennis Dixson may be invited to the NYC ceremony as well.
If I had a vote for the Heisman, Pat White would have it. Of course,
I am prejudiced but I agree with Coach Rodriguez, Pat is the best
player in America.
As usual the coaching carousel is starting to turn. Openings
at Michigan, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Baylor and SMU
are currently accepting applications. Les Miles is expected to leave
LSU for his Alma Mater Michigan. That creates all kinds of sce-
narios at LSU.
WEEKEND WRAPUP
West Virginia rushed for 517 yards against No. 22 UConn.
Noel Devine, the North Fort Myers Freshman, had his first 100-
yard game. He is averaging over 10 yards per carry. WVU got
some style points with a 66-21 win.
Darren McFadden ended with 1,725 rushing yards for the
Razorbacks. His performance in the upset of No. I ranked LSU
was one for the ages. In tribute for his gift to the Mountaineers,
West Virginia fans were seen wearing "Hog Hats" in the stands in
Morgantown. I have to add to that my own Whooooooooo Pig
Soooooooie.
Tim Tebow finished the season by destroying the Noles and
making a statement for the Heisman. He finished with over 3,000
yards passing with 29 TD passes. He rushed for over 800 yards
with 22 TDs on the ground. Heisman worthy accomplishments? No
question about it but playing on a three-loss team and being only a
soph are question marks.
USF and UCF both finished the regular season with 9-3
records. The Bulls are bowl bound but where is unknown. USF
deserves better than the Papa Johns Bowl in Birmingham. Projec-
tions do have the Bulls in the Sun Bowl against Oregon State. The
bowl tie-ins must be changed. Tampa is a Big East town and the
Outback Bowl folks must get rid of any ties to the Big 10. UCF
should take care of Tulsa in the CUSA Championhip Game and go
the Liberty Bowl in Memphis which is a CUSA town and host that
bowl. UCF is projected to play Mississippi State in the Liberty
Bowl. Florida State is projected to play Cincinnati in Chalotte's
Meineke Car Care Bowl.

As you get caught up in
the holidays, the one
thing you don't want to
catch is the flu. Hardee
County is already
seeing an increase in
influenza-like illness, a
fever of 100F or greater,
a cough and/or sore
throat. Influenza can be a
serious condition which
is why it is especially
important for children
starting at age 6 months
to their fifth birthday,
people 50 or older,
pregnant women, and
anyone with a chronic
health condition such as
asthma, heart disease,
diabetes, or HIV/AIDS to
be vaccinated. If you live
with or provide care to
someone at high risk,
you should be
vaccinated too.

Wauhu,


1. Pitt at West Virginia "The Back Yard Brawl" is one of the
great rivalry games in college football. WVU almost ruined Pitt's
National Championship in 1976 with Tony Dorsett before losing
24-16.The Mountaineers did beat Pitt 17-14 in Dorsett's junior year
on a last second field goal. The Panthers' season would be made
upsetting WVU in 2007. Forget about it. Mountaineers blow out
Wanny's Kitty Kats with an offensive explosion. Maybe Pitt will
run faster this year? WVU 52 Pitt 17.
2. Army vs. Navy Pageantry abounds. One of the classic
games every season but Navy runs the ball too well for Army to
stop it. Middies are bowl bound again in 2007. Navy 35 Army 14.
3. Rutgers at Louisville Ray Rice leads Scarlet Knights to
a finaf victory before their bowl game. Rutgers 34 Louisville 24.
4. Oregon State at Oregon Beavers over the Dixson-less
Ducks who who have no quack left. OSU 31 Oregon 10.
5. UCLA at USC Trojans looking stronger than ever at the
season's close. Rose Bowl Bound. USC 45 UCLA 13.
6. Arizona at Arizona State Devils regroup after loss to
USC and beat rival Wildcats. ASU 38 Arizona 23.
7. Washington at Hawaii Hawaii gets a quality win over a
Pac-10 team. Hawaii 37 Washington 24.
8. FAU at Troy Trojans wrap up the Sun Belt title and get
ready to go bowling. Troy 34 FAU 21.
9. BYU at San Diego State BYU gets it done. BYU 41
SDSU 27.
10. Cal at Stanford Cardinal could not even beat Notre
Dame. Cal 48 Stanford 10.
11. MAC Championship Central Michigan vs Miami -
Red Hawks win first MAC Championship since Big Ben left for
the Steelers. Miami 33 Central Michigan 24.
12. CUSA Championship Tulsa vs. UCF UCF has
already beaten Tulsa 44-23. Look for more of the same. UCF 44
Tulsa 23.
13. Big 12 Championship Oklahoma vs. Missouri Chase
Daniel will take Missou to the National Championship game.
Missouri 33 Oklahoma 31.
14. ACC Championship Boston College vs. Virginia Tech-
How laughable is the ACC? No wonder these two schools left the
Big East to play at a lower level where they could win. Virginia
Tech 30 Boston College 17.
15. SEC Championship Tennessee vs. LSU LSU may
have lost a chance to win a National Championship but they won't
lose the focus to win an SEC title. LSU 35 Tennessee 21.
16. Jets at Miami Fish finally get a win. The Jets are even
worse than the Dolphins. Miami 24 Jets 17.
17. Jacksonville at Indianapolis Colts getting ready for the
playoffs. Indy 31 Jacksonville 21.
18. Tampa at New Orleans Bucs squeak one out on the
road. Tampa 24 Saints 23.
19. New England at Baltimore Pats rolling. New England
37 Baltimore 21.
20. Cincinnati at Pittsburgh Steelers cage the Bengals.
