FILLING IN


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
Restoration of the 1920s Hardee County Courthouse continues with exterior work. In
recent years, there have been many upgrades on the inside of the building construct-
ed in 1921 when the county was first established. Now, over 85 years later, equipment
is in place and crews have begun the massive task of removing the old mortar between
the bricks and replacing it with new to keep out moisture and preserve the interior. The
next project is an irrigation system which will drain away and prevent infiltration in the
first floor which Is halfway below ground level.


School Vandal Sentenced

Sentencing Hearing Set For 2nd Boy


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
One of two boys responsible
for tens of thousands of dollars
in damages to Hardee County's
first new school in 25 years has
been sentenced to time in a
juvenile detention center.
The second boy will learn his
fate in a sentencing hearing set
for Thursday, March 27.
But last Thursday, Jesus Rios
Juarez, 15, of Wauchula,
appeared in Hardee Juvenile
Court before Circuit Judge
Marcus J. Ezelle along with his
mother and public defender. He
entered a negotiated plea of
guilty to six of the original 29
counts against him.
Ezelle accepted his plea, offi-
cially found him to be a delin-
quent, and sentenced him to
nine to 12 months of commit-
ment in a residential juvenile


detention program of a "moder-
ate" risk level.
Further, Ezelle ordered multi-
ple fines and full restitution in
imposing a number of sanctions
on the teen.
Juarez had pleaded to bur-
glary of a dwelling with over
$f,000 in damages, grand theft
of a fire extinguisher, criminal
mischief, preventing extin-
guishment of a fire facility,
making a false fire alarm and
trespassing on school grounds.
His co-defendant, 14-year-
old Emanuel Chagolla, also of
Wauchula, entered a similar
plea to the same set of charges.
The later sentencing hearing
was then set at the request of his
lawyer.
In sentencing Juarez, Ezelle
also reserved jurisdiction over
the case until the boy reaches
his 19th birthday. For now, the


judge ordered the boy to remain
in home detention until a bed
can be found for him in a resi-
dential program with the state
Department of Juvenile Justice.
Further, Ezelle ordered
Juarez to perform 300 hours of
community service work, 100

Man Faces



24 Counts



Child Porn


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Bowling Green business-
man has been accused of down-
loading and storing child
pornography on his office com-
puter.
Billy Joe Staton Jr., of Staton
Inc. at 5200 U.S. 17 N., was
arrested by city police after
Yahoo.com reported suspicious
images on a Flickr.com account
to the National Center for Miss-
ing and Exploited Children. A
Cyber Tip Line notice was then


sent out to authorities.
Staton, 30, of 309 Apple
Ave., Bowling Green, was
booked into the Hardee County
Jail, where he remains under a
$120,000. bond. He faces 24
counts of possession of child
pornography.
An arraignment has been set
in Hardee Circuit Court for
Tuesday, March 18, at 8:30 a.m.
Bowling Green Police Chief
John Scheel explained that
Yahoo reported nine suspicious
uploads dating from Jan. 18 at
about 3:30 p.m. A Cyber Tip
was forwarded to Lt. Christo-
pher Vorisek of the Marion
County Sheriffs Office on Jan.
28, he said.
Vorisek "did the leg work,
found it was our jurisdiction
and gave the information to us,"

PIONEER POOCHES


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
This canine couple hitchhiked a ride for a motorized tour of the 100 acres of Pioneer Park Days in Zolfo Springs this
past weekend. The 40th annual event featured dozens upon dozens of antique flywheeler engines, tractors and cars;
demonstrations of blacksmithing, toy making, yarn spinning and more; frontiersmen; animals; concession-stand
treats; and nearly 500 vendors of every variety. The festival opened on Wednesday of last week and came to a close
on Sunday, drawing huge crowds of people over its five-day run. For more photos of the action, see 10A.

Who Should Help



The Help Center?


PHOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
The $1.4 million streetscaping along Main Street has finally begun. By the second
week, workers from Spectrum Underground Inc. had torn up portions of the sidewalk
in front of historic Wauchula City Hall and proceeded from Fourth Avenue to Sixth
Avenue (U.S. 17 Southbound). The long-awaited beautification project, several years
in the planning and funded by the state Department of Transportation, will include
inlaid walkway pavers and ramps, and bright new benches and trash receptacles as
well as flowers and shrubs. Work will continue up and down both sides of U.S. 17 and
west on Main Street as far as funds will allow, but excluding sidewalks between
Seventh and Ninth Avenues where there are drainage problems. These two blocks will
be done later with CRA (Community Redevelopment Agency) dollars.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"It's about how much we can
do, not how much we can get."
Executive director Judith
George explained Tuesday why
the Hardee Help Center needs
to proceed with the established
plan to occupy part of the new
city building on Green Street.
The issue is on the agenda for
Monday's 6 p.m. meeting of
the Wauchula City Commission'
at its chambers in City Hall, 225
East Main Street.
The Help Center, which pro-
vides a variety of financial and
social services to the needy of
the county, has been housed at
the old Ausley Library at the
corner of Eighth Avenue and
Palmetto Street.
Since the Garden Club build-
ing across the park was de-
stroyed by hurricanes, the City
Commission and city staff have
been trying to move that group


into the old library building
which was donated to the city
with a stipulation that it be used
for civic purposes.
To continue the Garden Club
near its park, a plan developed
to construct a pre-fab modular
building on Green Street to be
used by the Help Center and
city public works storage.
At a recent meeting, the com-
mission responded to "informa-
tion" that the Help Center had
made alternate plans with'the
First Baptist Church Mission to
use its facilities. If that were
true, the city would be able to
use all of its new Green Street
building, the commissioner
said.
George was distressed that
the matter was discussed with-
out anyone from her staff, or the
Hardee County Ministerial
Association which supports the
Help Center, present.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The Crown Ford dealership in Wauchula has been purchased
by Alan Jay and will soon be known as Alan Jay Ford of Wauchula.
The general manager, already at work, is Elizabeth Harris,
wife of Wauchula Police Captain Thomas Harris. They live in
Wauchula.
Crown Automotive has a lot of auto dealerships in Pinellas
County. Alan Jay owns several dealerships in Highlands County.

The annual Pioneer Park Days in Zolfo Springs ended Sunday
and was a big success. The weather was really good.
The Hardee County fair recently ended, and it was also a big
success.

Jerry Waldron, his former brother-in-law, said this week of
local citrus grower Bob Norris, "A finer man never walked the
earth than Bob Norris."

On Tuesday in Wauchula regular unleaded gasoline prices had
jumped to $3.23- a gallon and $3.65 for diesel. That's awful.
,1Maybe Congress should put some aati-trust pressure on the big
oil companies for gouging motorists" ne o company made a
record profit i~ 2007 of just over $40.billion. L

Several years ago state officials used to say about 1,000 peo-
ple a day were moving into Florida. No more.
S A recent report indicated Florida's net annual growth from
migration (less those moving out) is 89,000 people, which is just
under 250 a day.
Some people are moving out of Florida to places like Georgia,
Tennessee, Alabama and the Carolinas because of overcrowded-
ness, high taxes and insurance, and to get away from traffic con-
gestion and hurricanes.
A slower growth rate could actually help Florida's agriculture,
environment, and water supply.

Odell Taylor of Wauchula wants to know where he can dispose
of outdated breathing treatments that have not been used. His num-,
ber is 773-6343.

The local political situation is beginning to get a little activity,
reported the supervisor of elections office on Tuesday.
For county commissioner District 3 incumbent Gordon Norris
and Terry Atchley have filed papers.
For county commissioner District 1 incumbent Minor Bryant
and Gene Davis have filed.
For county commissioner District 5 incumbent Dale Johnson
has filed.
Tax collector Zee Smith has filed.
So have Arnold Lanier and Thomas Santarlas for sheriff.
Incumbent Loran Cogburn is retiring at the end of the year after 12
years.
For School Board District 3 incumbent Gina Neuhofer has
filed.

Scheel said.
The chief said the investiga-
tion was handed over to Cpl.
Robert Ehrenkaufer, who is the
only Bowling Green officer
certified with the Law En-
forcement Against Child Harm,
or LEACH, Task Force.
Armed with information
obtained by Vorisek through
subpoenas to both Yahoo.com
and Embarq Corp., including
the log-in name of HICBOY99
and the IP address of Staton Inc.
along with copies of the images,
Ehrenkaufer was able to obtain
a search warrant for the mobile-
home and auto-sales business
on U.S. 17 in the city.
There, he said
in his arrest report, he found a
Dell computer that was the only
access to the Internet. Ehren-
kaufer searched the computer's
hard drive, allegedly finding
"several" digital photo and
video files depicting child
pornography.
Ehrenkaufer seized the com-
puter, and in a more detailed
search of its files allegedly dis-
covered 106 photos and 17
videos in a saved folder. Some,
he charged, showed children in
pornographic situations.
"After examining each video
and: photo, it was determined.
that 20 of the photos and six of
the videos met the criteria for
child pornography," Ehren-
kaufer said in his report.
The images were described
as poses of naked children and
of children involved in sexual
acts.
He also found the
HICBOY99 profile, he said.
Ehrenkaufer interviewed
Staton, who admitted down-
loading the files in the saved
folder. Staton added, however,
that he thought he had deleted
the files because "some of them
were bad." Further, Staton
denied uploading any porno-
graphic photos.
. Ehrenkaufer. arrested Staton
on Feb. 18. Charges against the
man were enhanced to second-.
degree felonies because, as per
Florida State Statutes, he is
accused of possessing more
than 10 images of child porn.
Of the 26 original charges
filed against him, two have
been dismissed by the prosecu-
tion. Twenty-four remain,--
active.

"There's been a misunder-
standing that we were offered
the church instead of the Green
Street building. That's not ex-
actly true. We can use part of its
building to store appliances and
furniture for the Thrift Store,
another ministry supported by
the Ministerial Association,
which is already overflowing.
We can also use a room for the
LIEAP (low-income energy
assistance program which helps.
people with excessive utility
bills in the winter or summer).
woRker who comes twice a
week.
"All we want to do is provide
services to the community.
Can't we all just get along and
provide more blessings to the
people who need them. There
are so many needs in the com-
munity. That church is an addi-
tional resource but will not pro-
vide room for us to provide all
the services we have. We appre-
.ciate all that.th.e city's done for
us, but ask them not to stop
helping us because we could
help some other folks another
way," concluded George.
City Manager Rick Giroux
responded Tuesday that no spe-
cific plan has been made at the
Green Street Building. "The
outside is finished, the doors
and windows are in. We are
waiting guidance from the com-
mission on how to proceed. The
building is ready to go.
He said the longstanding plan
to put the Garden Club Center
at the Ausley Library location
was resolved by the plan to
move the Help Center. "We're
not disputing the good that they
do. It's a matter of the degree,or


scope, the threshold of the help
we should provide. Should we
help with their basic operations
or an expanded ministry? Are
we supposed to provide utilities
at both locations? Maybe pri-
vate enterprise, the county or
someone else should help carry
the ball, not just the city," said
Giroux, emphasizing that it was
up to the commission to decide
to what extent the city should
contribute to the help center.

The two most important
things in life are good friends
and a strong bullpen.

hours of which must be related
to gang activity, such as clean-
ing up graffiti.
And he must pay $33,834.76
in restitution to the Hardee
County School Board first, and
then the school district's insur-
ance carrier. Those payments,
of $150 a month, must be made
at the Hardee County
Courthouse and completed by
his 19th birthday, Ezelle said.
Juarez also must write a letter
of apology to the School Board.
Ezelle additionally assessed a
$250 fine for the criminal mis-
chief, or -graffiti, charge, $150
for the other felonies and $40
for the misdemeanor counts.
The judge ordered Juarez to
abide by a 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. cur-
few for the duration of the pro-
bation he will serve following
his confinement, to stay away
from all Hardee County schools
and to refrain from any gang
contacts.
And because the boys' crime
included urinating on an
American flag and trying to
burn it, Juarez was ordered to
attend a flag ceremony with a
National Guardsman or another
military person.
Juarez and Chagolla were
captured on videotape over-
night Jan. 22 and 23 as they
spent 3-1/2 hours defacing
Hardee Junior High School,
destroying equipment and steal-
ing computers.
They spray-painted "Sur 13"
gang signs throughout the facil-
ity, inside and out, broke win-
dows, discharged fire extin-
guishers, urinated in hallways
and upturned boxes of school
records.
A school review into the mat-
ter in conjunction with Hardee
County Sheriffs Office findings
revealed that doors had been
left unlocked and an alarm
unset at the school.
Schools Superintendent
Dennis Jones said measures
have been taken to prevent such
a breakdown in procedures in
the future.
The school, built at a cost of
$42 million, is only in its sec-
ond year of operation.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Then Jesus took the five
loaves and two fish, and
looking up to Heaven,
thanked God, broke the
loaves and divided the two
fish and gave them to the
disciples to distribute . .
Afterward they collected 12
baskets full of pieces of
bread and fish that were left
over. There were 5,000 men
who ate the loaves.
Mark 6:41,43-44 (PME)'
FRIDAY
Then He took the seven
loaves and the fishes and,
after giving thanks to God,
He broke them and gave to
the disciples, and the disci-
ples gave to the people ...
and the scraps left over were
enough to fill seven baskets.
Four thousand men shared
in this meal, to say nothing
of the women and children.
Matthew 15:36-38 (NEB)
SATURDAY
As they sailed, Jesus fell
asleep. A squall came down
on the lake, so that the boat
was being swamped, and
they were in great danger.
The disciples went and woke
Him, saying, "Master, Mas-
ter, we're going to drown."
He got up and rebuked the


wind and the raging waters;
the storm subsided and all
was calm. "Where is your
faith?" He asked the disci-
ples.
Luke 8:23-25 (NIV)
SUNDAY
The boat was on the seas
and He was alone on the
land. And He saw that they
were distressed in rowing,
for the wind was against
them . And He came to
them, walking on the sea...
But immediately, He spoke
to them and said, "Take
heart, it is I; have no fear."
And He got in the boat with
them and the wind ceased.

Track Teams Start Well


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Even with incomplete infor-
mation, it's apparent that both
the Hardee girls and boys track
teams were winners at the
Cardinal Mooney Invitational
which began the season on
Feb. 23.
Hardee garnered at least 10
first-place and a couple of sec-
ond-place finishes. That's with-
out counting the discus, pole
vault, boys shot put, or the long
jump and triple jump in which
Hardee's Postenea "Tena"
Louisjeune has gone to state
two years in a row.
Hardee also went to the
Sebring Relays last Thursday,
but results were unavailable at
press time.
The teams are preparing for
this weekend's Disney Relays
for college and high school stu-
dents and the Booker
Invitational next Friday.
Distance running was one
area where Hardee excelled.
Senior Gilberto Gutierrez led
opponents around the track in
both the 1,600 and 3,200 races.
He finished the first in 5:15 and
the second in 11;44. Reginald


Snell was closest for Hardee in
the 1,600 and Murad Otallah
placed third in the 3,200 at
13:24.
Hardee girls also swept the
3,200, with Briana Aguila win-
ning in 17:07 and Laura Galvan
close behind at 17:47 for sec-
ond place. Lupe Flores was
third and Nancy Conejo fourth.
In the 4x400 relay, Hardee
boys took first in a time of
3:53.1, with Pete Solis, Jean
Frenot, Devonte Carter and
Marwin Simmons. The Lady
'Cats were second in that race,
with Jalynn Smith, Daisha
Blandin, Lacey Garza and
Mylekia Stevenson finishing in
4:57.
The teams performed similar-
ly in the 4x100, with Jayquan
Gandy, Jimmy Cimeus, Jordan
Grimsley and Simmons placing
first in a time of 46:57, while
the girls were second, with
Brittany Brown, Garza, Gloria
Solis and Louisjeune coming
home in 56:19.
Another senior, Andrea
"Drea" Parkinson, hopes to
return to state in the 300 and
110 hurdles. She won both, tak-
ing the 300 in 51.27 and the 110


in 16.1. Sevenson was third and
Smith fifth in the 300 hurdles
and Garza was fourth in the
110.
On the boys side of that
ledger, Frenot placed first in the
300 hurdles in a time of 45.51,
followed by Nathan Tomlinson
in second place and Nick
Battles in fourth. In the 100 hur-
dles, Tomlinson placed second.
There were other running
accomplishments as well. In the
100-yard dash, Gandy was first
in a time of 11.41. Carter was
second at 12:21.
In the 4x800 race, Gutierrez,,
Paul Macias, Ottallah and
Frenot won in a time of 9:41.
The Hardee girls placed second,
with Nancy Ramirez, Aguila,
Smith and Galvan finishing in
12:33.
Others competing for Hardee
were Carlos Ramirez, Jorge
Lopez, Gonzalo Saldivar, An-
drew Hunt, Gerardo Villegas,
Gilberto Jaimes, Mary Brad-
dock, Amanda Bissette, Yesenia
Vargas, Heather Kouns, Shani-
que Outley, Justin Tomlinson,
Lauren Moore, Lacresha
Carlton, Irlande Metayer, Mike
McTaw and Brandon Wright.


CRACKER CLASSROOM


COURTESY PHOTO
Students at Zolfo Springs Elementary School were thrilled by the sound of whips crack-
ing and the sight of cowboys and their horses trotting down the road followed by buck-
boards and wagons. The school's 520 children and their teachers witnessed this
recent re-enactment of the historic Cracker Trail Ride, which detours from its route
along SR 66 each year to include the waiting students. To prepare for this annual event,
classroom lessons included information about this part of Florida history.

Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


TALKING' TURKEY
Better start brushing up on your turkey calling, because spring
gobbler season's here. Whether you prefer to use a mouth call, box
call, slate or any combination, March means it's time to start talking'
turkey.
One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in
Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey.
This unique bird is one of five subspecies of wild turkey in North
America.
The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and nowhere
else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-state
hunters. They're similar to the Eastern subspecies (found in the
Panhandle) but tend to be a bit smaller and typically are darker with
less white barring on the flight feathers of their wings.
The white bars on the Osceola are narrower, with an irregular
broken pattern, and don't extend to the feather shaft. It's the black
bars of the Osceola that actually dominate the feather. Similarly,
secondary wing feathers also are darker. When the wings fold
across the back, the whitish triangular patch formed is less promi-
nent on the Osceola. And, Osceola feathers show more iridescent
green and red colors, with less bronze than the Eastern.
The National Wild Turkey Federation and the Florida Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Commission recognize, in their respective
turkey registry programs, any wild turkey harvested within or south
of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay
and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies. Eastern turkeys and cross-
breeds are found north and west of those counties in the Panhandle.
The highly anticipated spring turkey season runs March 1-
April 6 in the South Hunting Zone and March 15-April 20 in the
Northwest and Central zones. The exception is Holmes County,
where the season runs three days, March 15-17.
Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the
daily bag limit's one. The season and possession limit on turkeys is
two, except in Holmes County, where the season limit's one.
Shotguns are the best choice when hunting turkeys, but if
you're so inclined, you may use a rifle, muzzleloader or handgun,
or you can try your luck with a bow or crossbow.
Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour before sun-
rise to sunset, but on wildlife management areas you must quit
hunting at 1 p.m.
Of course, you can use turkey decoys to help entice that stub-
born old bird, but you're not permitted to hunt turkeys with dogs,
use recorded turkey calls or sounds or shoot them while they're on
the roost or over bait. You also can't hunt them when you're with-
in 100 yards of a game-feeding station.
To participate in spring turkey hunting, you'll need a Florida
hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan to pursue a gobbler
on one of Florida's many WMAs, you also must purchase a man-
agement area permit.
All of these licenses and permits are available at county tax
collectors' offices, most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing
supplies, by calling toll-free 1-888-486-8356 or online at
www.wildlifelicense.com.
If you didn't put in for a special-opportunity or quota permit,
don't worry, several WMAs don't require them. Visit
MyFWC.com/hunting and under "This Month's Hunting Oppor-
tunities," click on "2008 Spring Turkey Guide" to see a list of


WMAs where you only need a hunting license, management-area
permit and turkey permit to hunt spring turkeys.
If you take a turkey with an 11-inch beard and 1 1/4-inch
spurs, get your name listed in the FWC's Wild Turkey Registry by
applying for an "Outstanding Gobbler Certificate." There also is a
"First Gobbler Certificate" awarded to hunters under age 16 who
harvest their first gobbler, regardless of beard and spur measure-
ments. Applications for both are available at MyFWC.com/hunt-
ing.
Whether it's going solo after that elusive old tom or double-
teaming a pair of birds with your buddy, March means spring gob-
bler season's here.
Here's wishing you a successful spring turkey season.
Remember to introduce someone new to the sport of hunting when
you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and we'll
see you in the woods!

Seatrout, Snook


Seasons Reopen


The recreational harvest sea-
sons for spotted seatrout in
North Florida and for Gulf
coast snook reopened on Satur-
day. This means that the sport
harvest of spotted seatrout and
snook is open in all Florida
waters.
Spotted seatrout harvest is
not allowed during February
each year in Florida Atlantic
coast waters north of the Flag-
ler/Volusia county line and in
Gulf coast waters north of a line
running due west from the
westernmost point of Fred
Howard Park Causeway, which
is about 1.17 miles south of the
Pinellas/Pasco county line.
This one-month closure helps
maintain the abundance of spot-
ted seatrout.
The maximum daily bag limit
for spotted seatrout in reopened
waters north of the established
boundaries is five fish per per-
son. In waters south of these
boundaries, the daily limit is
four fish per person.
The statewide slot limit for
spotted seatrout is 15-20 inches
total length. However, anglers
may keep one spotted seatrout
larger than 20 inches as part of
the daily bag limits.
A kind word is like a Spring
day.

OVE 25 EWCEVOET ALLO ALE


Spotted seatrout may not be
harvested by any multiple
hooks with live or dead natural
bait, and snagging or snatch-
hooking spotted seatrout is not
allowed. Spotted seatrout may
be taken only with hook-and-
line gear and cast nets and must
be landed in a whole condition.
The harvest of snook is not
allowed in all of Florida's Gulf,
Everglades National Park and
Monroe County coastal and in-
land waters in December, Jan-
uary and February each year to
help protect snook populations
during the colder months when
snook are most vulnerable.
Anglers may harvest one
snook between 28 and 33 inch-
es total length per day from
these reopened waters. In
Florida's Atlantic coastal and
inland waters, including Lake
Okeechobee and the Kissimmee
River, anglers may keep one
snook between 28 and 32 inch-
es total length per day.
Licensed saltwater anglers
must purchase a $2 permit to
harvest snook. Snatch-hooking
and spearing snook are prohib-
ited, and it is illegal to buy or
sell snook. Snook regulations
also apply in federal waters.

Wherever there is a human
being, there is an opportunity
for a kindness.

Nutrition Notes.


Q: Exactly which foods are
included in the "processed
meat" category that we are
now advised to avoid? Are
any processed meats safe to
eat?
A: Processed meats include
bacon, sausage, ham, hot dogs
and lunchmeats such as bologna
and salami. Frequent consump-
tion of these meats is linked to
greater risk of colorectal cancer
(and perhaps other cancers as
well).
In fact, a recently released
international report on diet and
cancer risk cites convincing
evidence supporting this link;
the report points to an estimated
12 percent increase in colorec-
tal cancer risk for every ounce
of processed meat eaten each
day (roughly equivalent to one
slice of lunchmeat).
Although occasionally enjoy-
ing a serving or two is not
taboo, for those who have been
eating these meats regularly, it's
worth rethinking old habits.
Research is ongoing to deter-
mine which mechanisms are
most strongly implicated in
cancer development, but scien-
tists point to three primary
agents. Risk may be related to
Sthe nitrites that are often added
to maintain color and prevent
bacterial contamination. Once
eaten, these nitrites can be con-
verted within our bodies to
nitrosamines, compounds found
to cause cancer.
Furthermore, processed
meats frequently contain high
levels of salt and many are
smoked as well; both of these
processes may increase cancer
risk.
Finally, products made from
pork and beef (red meats) may
pose a risk due to their heme
iron content.
In the U.S., reduced-fat pro-
cessed meats made with chick-
en and turkey and, more recent-
ly, nitrate-free processed meats
are becoming more common.
However, until we know more
conclusively where the risks
from processed meats arise, you
are best advised to avoid fre-
quent use of these products as
well.
Q: I'm confused: is a high-


energy food one that gives me
more energy or one that's
high in calories and therefore
fattening?
A: Technically, a high-ener-
gy food (not to be confused
with an energy-dense food) is
one that is high in calories. Just
as we use inches to measure
size or miles to gauge distance,
calories are simply the unit with
which we measure energy.
When people talk about high-
energy foods, what they often
mean is foods that give you
longer-lasting energy. Some
foods candy, for example -
can provide a lot of calories, but
these are not considered high-
energy foods. Because your
body processes the calories in
these foods so quickly (produc-
ing a rapid rise and subsequent
drop in blood sugar), you are
left feeling anything but ener-
getic just a short time later.
True high-energy foods, like
whole grains, may not be partic-
ularly high in calories, but are
metabolized more slowly, lead-
ing to a longer-lasting supply of
energy.
Secondly, classifying a food
as "fattening" in itself is a mis-
nomer. Weight gain depends on
the overall calorie load of your
diet, not on the calorie content
of one food. If your total energy
intake is greater than the
amount of energy you burn,
weight gain is inevitable. The
more high-calorie foods you
eat, the more quickly those
calories add up. In the end, it's
the total calories you eat over a
few days or a week that really
matters.
A kind word is like a Spring
day.

County Rejects Reasons

For Reclamation Delays


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A four-year litigation is not
reason to postpone reclamation.
After two hours of debate,
that was the consensus of the
Hardee County Commission
and county Planning and
Zoning Board.
They asked county attorney
Ken Evers to prepare an ordi-
nance demanding Mosaic
Fertilizer Inc. present a specific
reclamation plan within 90
days.
Mosaic vice-president/engi-
neer Tom Myers gave a power
point review of the Fort Meade
Mine North Hardee Extension
in which no mining has recent-
ly occurred or is planned.
He then went on to report on
the Fort Green Southern Re-
serves, Fort Green/Payne Creek
Extension and South Rockland
North Pasture mines. The
biggest controversy was over
734 acres in the Fort Green
Southern Reserves which have
been mined and still has not
begun reclamation.
Myers said that,it was a ques-
tion of material management.
The company had planned to
use sand tailings from the pro-
posed Ona Mine to complete
reclamation in the Fort Green
Southern Reserves.
The Ona mine plan has been
opposed by several groups from


adjacent counties and is just
now beginning to get resolved.
The Environmental Resource
Permit was approved but is
- -:!er appeal. Hopefully, that
will be complete by mid-sum-
mer, Myers said.
The commission/zoning
board wanted reclamation to
begin within 12 months.
It would take 14 miles of pipe
to bring sand tailings from the
Four Corners Mine to complete
the reclamation south of Fort
Green. It would take over 12
months to get that pipe in and
begin to bring sand tailings that
far, Myers said.
"You're asking us to accept a
lot. Where do we draw the line
with your reclamation promis-
es? The end of SR 62 going into
Manatee County looks like a
junk yard. It needs to look bet-
ter," said Commission Chair-
man Dale Johnson.
Myers protested, "We have
reclaimed some areas ahead of
schedule. You don't hear of our
successes. We want to be
responsive and hope you will be
patient for a better project."
He acknowledged that there
would be a beneficiation plant
in Hardee County in conjunc-
tion with the Ona mine, and
sand/clay mix would be used in
two clay ponds in nearby
Manatee County.
After more discussion of

mining and reclamation in
Hillsborough, Manatee and
Polk counties and plans in
Hardee County, Myers conclud-
ed his presentation with photos
of a host of birds such as egrets
and herons rising from a
reclaimed marsh area. "We're
not sitting on our hands. We
will have to move power lines,
booster pumps and much else.
We want to cooperate, but I just
can't promise we can do it with-
in 12 months," he stated.
The final discussion of the
evening was on financial
accountability. The mining
company must show that it has
sufficient funds to complete
reclamation. Mosaic Assistant
Controller Gary Augerson
talked about the improved
financial picture of the compa-
ny, the amount of debt from the
merger of Cargill and IMC to
form Mosaic, how much debt
had been paid off and the cur-
rent international phosphate
market.
He said the demand for fertil-
izer is high because of corn pro-
duction for development of the
alternate fuel ethanol. He asked
that the company's financial
report be used instead of a bond
or corporate guarantee/real
estate mortgage.
Myers said the company was
the largest pipe line customer in
the nation but it is averagely
three years from order to receipt
of pipe. That is why they must
transfer pipeline from Hills-
borough County to Hardee for
the reclamation put off because
of the delay in getting the Ona
mine permits. He said it-would
take time to come up with a
more exact plan for alternative
reclamation.
The commission/board was
not pleased and issued its de-
mand for a specific plan within
90 days.
The zoning board unani-
mously accepted the financial
plan and a reclamation plan
within 90 days. The commis-
sion approved them on a 4-1
vote, with Commissioner
Bobby Smith dissenting.
Kindness is the language
which the deaf can hear and
the blind can see.

THERE IS A TIME AND A PLACE FOR A TIE
I walked into the First National Bank the other day and ran
into Jose Camillo, a new young executive who was wearing a beau-
tiful solid-colored, bright lavender tie with a white shirt. I com-
rhented on how great he looked.
It reminded me of the years when I was in vet school. While
we were there we had to wear a shirt and tie every day and every-
where we went. We usually had to change clothes several times a
day because we had to wear lab gear when working in the lab.
When I went into practice in Arcadia I was determined to be
professional. I really felt committed to wear a tie. I intended to
keep doing that, but one night about 9 o'clock I got a call from a
blonde-headed barrel racer, who met me at the clinic with her little
daughter and a colicky horse.
I knew it was an emergency because the barrel racer already
had her hair rolled up in two-inch curlers. I got everything I need-
ed to treat a colicky horse and while I was trying to pass a tube in
him, he started jumping around a little bit. As a result I got the tube
into the wrong sinus, and he started bleeding from the nose.
About that time the horse sneezed and blew blood over me and
my favorite blue and yellow silk tie. I excused myself for a minute
and dashed into the clinic. I pulled off the tie and dropped it in a
bowl of cold water, which I had been taught would keep blood
from sticking on fabric. However, the blue and yellow colors ran
together and promptly turned green.
I hurried back out to tube the horse and had a difficult time get-
ting him to swallow the tube. I finally got him to swallow, but the
tube kinked and went down his esophagus. I wasn't aware of that,
so I hooked up the oil pump and started pumping. As I pumped
there was some resistance, so I pumped a little harder.
About that time the hose blew off the end of the pump like a
hot fire hose and sprayed oil all over my client and her daughter.
When I pulled the tube back out I realized the end had kinked. I
kept on until I got it right, and we finished treating the horse that
night.
The lady went on home, and I am sure she probably spent sev-
eral hours that evening saying unkind things about me as she tried
to wash the mineral oil out of her hair and reset it. It was probably
in the wee hours of the morning before she finally got to bed. As a
matter of fact, I think she confirmed that point with me the next
time she saw me.
Two months later the same blonde-headed barrel racer showed
up at the clinic after work. It was the same deal. She already had
her hair in the oversize rollers; her little daughter was with her; she
had the same horse, and he was colicky. I tubed him, but I was very
careful to keep the tube from kinking. Then I pumped up the oil
pressure. It is difficult to believe, but sure enough the tube popped
off the end of the pump and sprayed the lady and her daughter all
over again.
She really didn't think it was funhy, and I didn't either because
the client is always right. Anyway, we finally got the tube down the
horse without a kink in it and she left. I thought that again she must
have spent another two or three hours getting the oil out of her hair
while thinking obscene things about me.
The most profound result of that evening was that I never
again wore a tie in veterinary practice.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

THE HATRED OF THE WORLD
Do you doubt that the world will hate you for your Christian
convictions? Only look at what they did to Jesus, who was the
incarnation of those beliefs.
Our Lord said, "If the world hates you, keep in mind that it
hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as
its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world. This is why the
world hates you" (John 15:18,19).
But you may say, "I have never been persecuted. I live in
America, "the land of the free and the home of the brave. This is a
Christian nation because many of its founders were Christians."
This hatred of God runs deep in all the descendants of Adam
because sin was introduced in the Garden. However, it is often hid-
den by patriotism and disguised when politicians run for office and
speak of the "greatness" of the American people. We like to hear
such speeches. They tickle our ears but there is no truth in them.
And there is no evidence that the American people or any other
people are ready to repent, change their wicked ways and hum-
bled themselves before God.
This is why the devil's counsel of compromise is so popular.
Why should anyone be dogmatic about how his neighbors live?
Aren't we all walking the same road and aiming for the same des-
tination?
As a matter of fact, we are not.
Jesus said, "No one comes to the Father but by Me" (John
14:6). This exclusive and lonely road is found by only a fqw
(Matthew 20:16) because it carries a price that few are willing to
pay.
The devil counsels tolerance. However, those who practice it
soon find that the world's tolerance applies only to non-Christian
religions. The major media is slow to report the outrages commit-
ted against Christians but is clamorous in its denunciations of
believers who are critical of others.
Here is the counsel of the Bible. Do.not be shocked at the
world's hatred. Do not expect to be treated fairly. Do as Jesus did.
He went steadily on His way in obedience to His Father.
After all, the Father's approval is the only one that matters.

The basis ot our political system is the right of the people to
make and to alter their constitutions of government.
-George Washington
They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety.

Senior Citizen News
By Jim Walton

All'in attendance last Wednesday evening at the 40th annual
Pioneer Park Days at Zolfo Springs enjoyed beautiful music. The
directors of the entertainment presented us with a fine variety of
music from bluegrass bands to country-western and, of course, our
3 Note + 1 Band from the Catheryn McDonald Senior Center in
Wauchula was on stage with its program that represented 1940s-
1950s, "Big Band and Swing music."
The stage back-up banner at The Nickerson/Ullrich
Entertainment Pavilion read: "Hardee County Welcomes You."
How true that was again this year as in past years! There was a
good turn-out Wednesday despite the fact that the weather dropped
30 degrees in just 24 hours! In fact, by 5 p.m., when the 3 Note
Band came on stage the temperature was down to about 50 degrees
and with a strong North-Eastern breeze; it felt more like 40 degrees
for those of us in open air under the pavilion. However, things soon
"livened up" for us as the 3 Note Band gave a fine presentation of
music that led to some great dancing. Numbers were well received
by the audience.
By Thursday night's entertainment, the weather "temperature-
wise" had not co-operated. In fact, by 7 p.m. when our 3 Note Band
went on stage, the temperature had dropped to 45 degrees. But real
"troopers" they are, with the audience in mind and musician's
motto "the show must go on," and they gave another excellent per-
formance for all present to enjoy! When the program was over, we
all headed for warm cover.
Our center hostess was present last Thursday, introducing to us
her granddaughter Kari and great-granddaughter Kaelyn
Rhyndress visiting here from Michigan.
Not only are the 3 Notes + 1 Band, but all other entertainers
are to be commended for this year's events, especially with the
weather the way it was. Again the acoustics was almost a perfect
set-up, thanks to those in charge of sound and events. If you enjoy
music and love dancing Hardee County Pioneer Park days sure fur-
nished lots of it again at this year's events.
But it doesn't have to end there. Why not join us tonight
(Thursday) at the Catheryn McDonald Center, 310 N. Eighth Ave.,
Wauchula from 7-9 p.m. It's all free for seniors and their guests
Hope to see you there.

The lunatic, the lover, and the poet, are of imagination all com-
pact.

CHAPEL
Another great day of 203 in
attendance, with Gerry Wilhelm
greeting us with organ music.
The choir sang Victory In
Jesus," directed by Ardeth
Johns and accompanied by
Cheryl Conkle at the piano. She
and Jeanette Goetz, a visitor
from Cheryl's hometown, play-
ed a duet on the piano "As The
Deer." Pastor Jim spoke about
"How Big Is Your God?"
Appreciation to all who vol-
unteered to make the chapel
service a success, and did you
know the bulletin's were done
by Al and Carolyn Hetzel?
Nothing happens by magic.
Your hard work is what helps to
make our service so successful.
COFFEE/ACTIVITIES
We had 234 for doughnuts.
Many coupons were won, and
50/50 was won by Don Spohn.
Congratulations to all the win-
ners.
Upcoming activities: Satur-
day is the street dance with
Diane and Garry entertaining at
6 p.m. It will be by the Rec-
reation Hall on Fort Dade and
Caloosa drives. Beverages and
snacks will be sold for your en-
joyment, and please bring your
own chairs for a fun evening
under the stars.



Nutrition

Notes

Q: Is coconut milk high in.
saturated fat?
A: Yes, regular coconut milk
is extremely high in saturated
fat. It is also high in calories.
Just one half-cup contains
roughly 250 calories and be-
tween 20 to 25 grams of saturat-
ed fat at least a day's worth.
As a more healthful alterna-
tive, try using small amounts of
light coconut milk to retain that
distinct taste with much less fat.
Keep your portion to one-third
cup and you'll get just 50 calo-
ries and 4 grams of saturated
fat. Wide-sweeping Internet
claims that the fat in coconut
milk and coconut oil offers dis-
tinct health benefits are not sup-
ported by sound research.
Q: I've seen buckwheat
pancakes on several breakfast
menus lately. Are they lower
in calories than regular pan-
cakes?
A: Although buckwheat
flour contains about 10 percent
fewer calories than an equal
amount of white flour, this dif-
ference is totally insignificant
in regard to a serving of pan-
cakes. Calories aside, buck-
wheat flour is a great choice (as
is whole-wheat flour) as it
yields pancakes that are higher
in fiber and more nutritious
than pancakes made with
refined white flour.
If you're making pancakes at
home and are unsure of how
your diners will react to the
heavier texture of a whole-grain
product, try making your pan-
cakes with a combination of
whole-grain and refined flours.
Although this reduces the nutri-
tional gains, it is progress
toward the end goal of eating
more whole grains.
When it comes to the calorie
load of your pancakes, take a
closer look at how you're top-
ping them. Loading them with
butter or margarine and lots of
syrup adds hundreds of calo-
ries.

Letter To The Editor


Brookside Bluff Resident


Comments On U.S. 17 Meeting


Dear Editor:
I commend your article of the
Hwy. 17 meeting in Wauchula
on Monday. The reporting was
accurate and concise (I was
there) your headline really
caught the flavor of the meet-
ing.
However, I do take issue with
two items in the article.
There were more likely 150
rather than 50 Brookside Bluff
residents present. (typo?)
The hurricane shelter issue
presented other problems be-
sides those stated in your arti-
cle:
Control issues (from the
county side). The unstated mes-
sage from across the table was
that at least one of the commis-
sioners was absolutely opposed
to the program.


Utility issues (from our
side) The refitting required
would have turned a cheerful
n:eeting room into a dungeon
(imagine boarding up the
brightest' room in your house).
'Hurricane Charlie confirmed
that the structure (as is) is more
than adequate for most hurri-
canes without such drastic
restricting.
Having covered the small
issues, it's time to bring up what
really bothers me about this
meeting.
Nothing was presented about
a third, and much more politi-
cally palatable option!
That is, split the current plan
(Hwy. 17 route) for construc-
tion of two northbound and two
southbound lanes in one pro-
gram into two phases.


Phase 1 would be construc-
tion of the southbound lanes
now
Phase 2 would be construc-
tion of the northbound lanes
sometime in the future.
This approach would achieve
a lower immediate cost, elimi-
nate the adverse effects that
would be inflicted on Brookside
Bluff residents with the railway
right-of-way routing, and put to
bed some of the suspicions of
political/financial shenanigans.
I'm well aware that any two-
phase program will cost more
than a single-phase program.
But there was no presenta-
tion of the third alternative.
Regards,
Jack Padrnos

Nutrition Notes


Q: If plant-based diets are
recommended for lower can-
cer risk, does that mean that a
vegetarian diet is best?
A: Not necessarily. Two
recent studies, one in Britain
and one in China, repeat previ-
ous findings showing that sim-
ply being a vegetarian does not
necessarily mean lower cancer
risk or better health.
Diets heavy on red meat and
sweets sometimes referred to
as Western diets have been
linked with greater cancer risk.
Note that poultry and seafood
consumption show no link to
increased cancer risk. Some

research even suggests high-
omega-3 fish may offer some
protection.
Although a few studies have
shown a somewhat lower can-
cer risk among vegetarians,
much of that may be due to the.
overall healthier lifestyles of
many vegetarians (for example,:
higher activity levels and tobac-
co avoidance).
In considering the health
impact of a vegetarian diet, it's
important to look not only at
what is not eaten, but also at
what is eaten, namely vegeta-
bles, fruits, whole grains and
beans. Simply omitting animal
foods while loading up on
sweets, chips, French fries and
refined grains is not likely to
produce the same protection as
a diet rich in plant-based foods.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In its only game last week,
the Hardee Junior Varsity base-
ball team downed Fort Meade
10-7.
The well-rested junior Wild-
cats get busy this week with a
trio of games. Monday, they
hosted Lake Placid. Tuesday
they were the early game in a
oible-header at Sebring, the
V playing at 4 p.m. and the
varsity about 7:30. The week
ends with a trip to Palmetto
tomorrow (Friday).
. Next week begins with a
Tuesday visit from DeSoto ar6
p.m. and ends with a trip to
Braden River for a 6 p.m. game.
Against Fort Meade last
week, Kody Porter opened on
the mound for the Wildcats. A
lead-off singled was erased by a
pickoff on an attempted steal,
but the next batter walked and
scored on an RBI double off the
catcher's bat.
Hardee responded immedi-
ately. Jake Mayer led off with a
single and came around with
the run to score the game. With
one down, Kyle Ward and
Lincoln Saunders hit back-to-
back singles. With two away,
Carson Davis and Grayson
Lambert both singled. Lambert
was stranded when the final out
stopped the action. Hardee had
taken a 4-1 lead.
After a three-up, three-down
Miner second inning, Hardee


picked up another run. Mayer
singled again, stole second and
raced home on a Conner Davis
sacrifice fly. It was 5-1.
The Miners stranded a pair of
runners in the top of the third.
In the home half of the inning,
Kalan Royal doubled and
crossed home plate on a
Lambert hit.
The fourth inning was simi-
lar, three batters for Fort Meade
and eight for Hardee. Catcher
Marcus Chancey led it off when
he was safe on an error. Mayer
singled, Conner Davis drew a
walk and Ward singled. He was
out at third on the relay from
the right fielder, but Mayer and
Davis had scored.
Hardee continued with a
Saunders walk and single by
Royal. Saunders scored on a
Carson Davis sacrifice fly to
deep left field. Hardee led 10-1.
Neither team scored in the
fifth inning. Hardee left Joe
Adams arid Mayer stranded.
With wholesale replacements
in. the sixth inning Hardee
opened the door for the Miners,
who responded with three runs
in the top of the sixth on a walk,
hit batsman and errors. The
Miners changed pitchers and
slowed the Wildcats.
Fort Meade went on to scored
another three runs in the top of
the seventh, and final, inning,
before Hardee put out the fire
and retired the side to win the
game 10-7.

We were sorry to see Anne
and Buddy Fields leave us this
week. We are sure they will join
us again next year.

MUSIC
Sunday, Feb. 24, was a beau-
tiful day for our last jam session
of the season. We had 14 musi-
cians playing their instruments
and singing to an audience of
40 people.
The 50/50 was won by Loetta
Goddard, Lew Mothersbaugh,
Jim Walton and Emma Walton.
The merchant certificates were
won by Amos Jones, Don
Phillips and Linda Elpers.
With the absence of Fred

Unbroken" a favorite of Inez
McFall, who for many years
oversaw the music jams, and
always ended with that song.

HORSESHOES
The day we have been wait-
ing for, our 2nd annual horse-

SHUFFLEBOARD
The skill to shuffleboard is
not to push the disk too hard or
too softly. You aim for the high
number 10, only to have your
opponent hit it and it lands on
the 10 or off the board. Our
winners this week were Don
Phillips and Audrey Semler.

BINGO
What a night at bingo! We
had 34 in attendance and the
excitement was in the air as the
numbers were being called by
Claude Longueuil and Bill
LeBright. The 50//50 was won


by Linda Sikas, jackpot by
Anne Bovino and the jar by
Mike Akelian. Bingo is played
every Tuesday and Thursday
night at 6. Everyone is wel-
come.

POKENO
Monday's game saw four
players as the other two were at
the horseshoe tournament,
Mary Lou Katzur ran away with
all the pennies and she
promised to bring them back.
Wednesday, we had Joyce:
and Charlotte Longueuil, Mary
Lou Katzur, Eddy Phillips and
Audrey Semler vying for those
pennies and it seemed Joyce,
Charlotte and Audrey had equal,
amounts.
So long till next week.

'Cats Blast Booker 8-1


Spot Sched ule arh*6- arc2


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A well-rested Hardee base-
ball team'beat Sarasota Booker
Friday night.
After a tornado threat can-
celled Tuesday's game at Mul-
berry, the Wildcats had a week
of practice to improve and
showed it in a big way.
The challenge continues this
week as the Wildcats went to
Sebring on Tuesday for a dou-
ble-header, with the JV playing
at 4 p.m. and the varsity about
7:30. The only other game this
week is tomorrow (Friday) at
home against the visiting Pal-
metto Tigers.
Next week's games are Tues-
day at DeSoto, Thursday home
for Fort Meade and Friday
home for Braden River.
Against Booker, neither team
scored in the first inning.
Wildcat senior Dan Timmons
struck out the first two
Tornadoes, walked one and got
the last to ground out to senior
first sacker Kaleb Saunders.
Hardee left junior short-stop
Ben Krause and senior catcher
Cody Gullatt aboard after both
had singled.
Booker took a brief lead in
the top of the second, when
Dayan Rodriguez took a walk,
'advanced on a Drew Walsh
groundout, stole third success-
fully and raced home on the
overthrow from the catcher.
Hardee evened the game in
the home half of the inning
-when Timmons drew a walk.
Josh Spencer went in as cour-
tesy runner and went to second


on a Carl Basey sacrifice. Will
Abbott drew a walk, during
which Spencer went to third on
a passed ball. There were run-
ners on the corners when a dou-
ble steal brought Spencer home.
The throw to second sailed and
Abbott ended up at third. He
was out at home on a Malik
Tatis fielder's choice grounder
to the shortstop.
Freshman Scott Donaldson
had the first of his three hits for
the night and Krause was hit by
a pitch, but Tatis, Donaldson
and Krause were left standing
when the final out occurred.
A hit and three Ks retired
Booker in the top of the third. In
the bottom of the inning,
Hardee went wild and plated
four runs. Junior Brek
McClenithan smacked a shot
off the pitcher and beat the third
sacker's throw to first. Saunders
fouled off a couple of pitches
while McClenithan stole second
and went to third on a wild
pitch which put Saunders on
first with a walk.
With runners on the corners
and Timmons at bat, a passed
ball brought McClenithan rac-
ing home and Saunders to sec-
ond. Timmons singled to right
and Nolan Neuhauser became
the courtesy runner. Basey was
safe on a fielder's choice which
caught Saunders coming home.
A Spencer sacrifice plated
Neuhauser.
Tatis singled to left to score
Basey on an overthrow.
Donaldson doubled to the right
center field fence and brought
Tatis home before the side was


retired. Hardee led 5-1.
Southpaw Timmons had
eight more strikeouts and a
pickoff at first in Booker's final
four innings.
Meanwhile, the Wildcats
added a run in the fourth, when
McClenithan doubled past the
centerfielder and Saunders
launched a double into right
field to score McClenithan.
The Wildcats picked up their
final pair of runs in the home
half of the sixth. Gullatt led off
with a double to deep right
field. McClenithan singled to
left field, with Gullatt coming
home when the fielder bobbled
the ball. McClenithan raced to
third on the late throw in. Pinch
hitter Adam Cartwright sacri-
ficed to score McClenithan.
Timmons singled to right center
but pinch runner Neuhauser
was stranded when the final out
ended the scoring.
Wildcat head coach Steve
Rewis was pleased. "It was a
good performance. Dan pitched
well, we swung the bats well
and played solid defense.
"We've had a lot of time to
work on things. The team has
worked hard and it's beginning
to show.
Timmons had a stellar night,
striking out 15 of the 25 batters
he faced. McClenithan and
Donaldson were each three-for-
four, but McClenithan got all
the way home each time he got
on base and Donaldson was
stranded three times. Four of
the 13 hits were for extra bases
and a trio of sacrifices helped
with the run production.

The American Dental Association sponsors National Children's Dental Health Month
each February to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. To celebrate
this event, Zolfo Springs Elementary School's assistant school nurse, Valerie Tanksley,
arranged for pre-kindergarten students to visit the dental clinic at the Hardee County
Health Department. Dental hygienist Raquel Tejada screened the students and
explained the importance of good dental hygiene. Students especially enjoyed a sur-
prise visit from the Tooth Fairy (Mary Rosales), who shared a treat bag with each stu-
dent for being so well-behaved. Here, little Adolfo Velasco-Perez learns how to brush

Tennis Teams Coming Together AAA Ball Going Like Thunder


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Battling the weather and
opponents, the Hardee tennis
teams are improving at every
turn.
Both the boys and girls
squads beat Avon Park in
matches on separate days last
week. The girls had home
matches against Sebring, Avon
Park and Braden River, while
the boys played Braden River
and Avon Park at home.
This week included another
split, with the girls going to Fort
Meade on Tuesday, while the
boys hosted the Miners. This
weekend is the Heartland Con-
ference meet at Sebring, begin-
ning at 3 p.m. on Friday and
continuing at 8 a.m. on
Saturday.
Next week, both teams host
DeSoto on Monday and Pal-
metto on Thursday and go to
Avon Park on Friday.
Last week began with the
Lady Wildcats hosting Sebring
on Monday and playing the
closest they have ever come,
dropping a 4-3 match. They
played three matches that went
to three sets.
At number one singled Lady
Streak Mary Midence outlasted
Lady Cat junior Kaitlin Justice
7-5, 6-4. Classmate Shelby
Durrance dropped the first set
to Sheela Joshi 4-6, but stormed
back to for Hardee's first win at
6-2, 6-0.
Hardee lost the number 3 and
4 singles. Senior Natalie Green


lost 6-1, 6-4 to Kelsie Johnson
and junior Clara Durrance lost
in three sets, 5-7, 6-4, 6-3.
At number 5 singles junior
Amanda Porter "continued
playing after hurting her play-
ing arm. She dug deep and
played hard to win her match 6-
2, 3-6, 6-4," reported coach
Barbara Leupold.
Three extra singles matches
were played. Senior Savannah
Palmer won her pro-set match
7-2, while sophs Kayla Woods
and freshman Kate Krause lost
theirs.
In the number one doubles,
Midence/Johnson beat Jus-
tice/Green 6-1, 6-2, while
Shelby and Clara Durrance beat
Joshi/A.JJ Jimenez, 6-3, 4-6,
10-8. In an extra doubles,
Palmer/Woods beat Kelsey
Tucker/Livingston 8-6.
The Hardee girls came back
on Wednesday to beat Avon
Park 4-3, giving some under-
class girls a chance to play. As
always, number one and two
play the toughest opponents.
Justice went three sets in her 0-
6, 6-2, 6-3 loss to Bailey Barber
and Shelby Durrance lost 6-3,
6-0 to Ashley Falis. They also
lost the doubles 6-3, 6-4.
Hardee won all the other
matches. Green downed Melis-
sa Tullo 6-3, 6-1, Clara Dur-
rance took Casey Martin 6-0, 6-
2 and Woods beat Taylor Lane
6-1, 3-6, 6-3. In an extra singles
Palmer beat Alex Garcia 8-2.
In the second doubles match,
Durrance/Durrance beat Mar-


tin/Tullo 6-1, 6-1.
Matches on Thursday against
Braden River were a study in
frustration for both Hardee
teams, the girls losing 6-1 and
the boys 7-0. In an extra dou-
bles match, freshmen Dylan
Justice and Justin Fones nearly
pulled out a win, before going
down 8-6.
The Hardee boys hosted
Avon Park on Friday in a 5-2
win. At number one singles
junior Jake Crews beat Zach
Lehman 6-0, 6-2, while class-
mate Joe Porter shut out John
Hunnicut 6-0, 6-0.
Senior Mike Torres took care
of Scott Evans 6-0, 6-2 and
junior Dusty Spears won over
Robert Becerrera 6-2, 6-2. At
number five singles, senior
Drew Macias won 6-0, 6-3 over
Mike Hill. Finishing early,
freshman Hunter Henderson
had an opportunity to play Hill,
but lost 6-3, 6-4.
Coach Ken Leupold used
underclassman in the doubles
matches to give them experi-
ence. Justice/Fones almost up-
set Lehman/Hunnicut in the
first set before losing 7-5, and
then dropping the second set 6-
1.
. Isaac Vasquez and Kyle
Bodeck took on Evans and
Becerrera in a 6-2, 6-2 loss.
"We're working on the dou-
bles getting to the net more, and
I'm seeing improvement every
day," commented Leupold.

Don't Go To First Christian Church!
(Local Church Shuts Down Sunday Service
To Serve The Community)


The Church has left the
building! And on March 9th,
its community will be glad
they did. First Christian
Church is putting its faith into
action by suspending its regu-
lar Sunday service to practice
very purposeful acts of kind-
ness throughout the commu-
nity.
Volunteers from both the
church and the community
will be joining together to
paint, clean, remodel, change
oil, put together school kits
and food for the under-
resourced, visit the sick and
elderly, feed the homeless,
assist widows and much
more. A total of 27 different
projects will be completed
during their normal service
time.
When asked about the up
coming day of service, Sr.
Pastor, Darin Canary stated,
"We're excited about how our
congregation has rallied to


support this special day of
service to our community.
Even though this is a one-day
event, our goal is that our
church will begin to be a
church that serves regularly.
We want to stop just going to
church and we want to start
.BEING the church. We are
called by Christ to serve oth-
ers and reach out to those who
are hurting or need a helping
hand. Its time we stop warm-
ing pews and start putting our
hands and feet where our
mouth is. We think this is a
great start and can't wait to
see what all God will do
through our willingness to
serve instead of be served on
March 9th."
If you would like to join
First Christian in their efforts
to serve, you can call the
church office at 773-9243 and
sign up for a service project
that you are willing to be a
part of.
