TOAD STRANGLER?


Mosaic Pays


$42 Million?

Hearings Begin On 10-Year

'Economic Mitigation' Plan


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A public hearing at 6 p.m.
today (Thursday) may be the
first step in allotting $42 mil-
lion to the county.
Back-to-back public hearings
tonight and next Thursday, Aug.
14, at the same time, could lead
to approval of an economic mit-
igation agreement with Mosaic
Fertilizer and begin to clear the
way for the company to begin
mining east of the Peace River.
Both hearings, joint with the
commission and the county
Planning & Zoning Board, will
be at the County Commission
chambers, Room 102, Court-
house Annex I, 412 W. Orange
St., Wauchula.
If the economic agreement is


approved, it is the final step in
the Major Special Exception,
mining application, 25-year
master mining and reclamation
plan and unit plan Mosaic
sought beginning in February.
During discussions and hear-
ings since then, the fertilizer
giant has sought permission to
mine 7,756 acres of its 10,856-
acre South Fort Meade Mine
Extension. There have been
hours of testimony on clay set-
tling dams, wildlife protection,
preservation of environmentally
sensitive lands, the quantity and
quality of water in the Peace
River and its tributaries, conser-
vation easements of wetlands
and uplands, creation of four
lakes and mahy other topics.

July rainfall totals amounted to three-quarters of an Inch above normal, according to a report issued this week by
the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Still, Hardee County remains under drought conditions and
restrictions. Lakes and ponds throughout the district remain precariously low, having risen only half an inch in the
past month. Aquifer levels have barely reached the normal range with 1.2 feet. And streamflow for the Peace River
is only.three percent.of.normai..So,-desp fth4Be ant n s e. tianshave experienced, the region

Wauchula: An Insurance Capital?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
If everything goes according
to plan, Wauchula could be-
come the next billion-dollar
insurance center.
Heartland Insurance Hold-
ings LLC plans to establish the
regional headquarters of Heart-
land Property & Casualty In-
surance Co. in a new hurricane-
resistant building in Wauchula.
It hopes to provide 100 to 150
white-collar jobs for underwrit-
,ers, agents, computer person-
nel, etc.
The proposed business is the
brainchild of Joe Albritton and
Derren Bryan at Albritton In-
surance LLC, the local office
for Allstate and other insurance
companies.
Albritton's application for a
$1.5 million Economic Devel-
opment Authority grant is the
first private sector job creation
4 application for EDA, which
uses severance tax monies to
assist infrastructure and job cre-
S ation in the county.

SEVERANCE TAX
DOLLARS
The special severance tax
monies were established a cou-
ple of years ago when the state
increased the usual severance
tax the phosphate companies
pay for each ton of ore mined
from $1.31 to $1.62 Hardee
County receives about 25-30
percent of those base monies,
which average $675,000 to
$800,000 a year and are placed
in the Transportation Trust




'Hazmat'


Disposal


Saturday
By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
The time has come once
again to gather up your house-
hold hazardous waste and carry
it to the county landfill!
This Saturday is one of the
quarterly collection days under
the Hardee County Household
Hazardous Waste program.
Families are encouraged to col-
lect any hazardous wastes for
free to the county landfill from
8 a.m. until noon.
Hazardous wastes include old
paint, oil, batteries, pesticides,
pool chemicals, old gas, flores-
cent light bulbs, disinfectants,
bleach, aerosol sprays of any
kind, household chemicals and
cleaners, photographic chemi-
cals, paint removers, wood
preservatives and any other
type of potentially harmful sub-
stance in your home. Please
note that tires are not hazardous
wastes.
It is important that residents
of Hardee County are aware of
the dangers that some house-
hold products can bring to your
home, as well as the environ-
ment. These harmful products

fund.
However, the Legislature also
created a special severance tax
for just Hardee and Hamilton,
the two counties of Rural Eco-
nomic Critical Concern and ear-
marked the extra monies for
these two counties. Since Hard-
ee County has three-quarters of
the mining, it receives 75 per-
cent or about $2.5 or $3 million
annually. The legislature ap-
pointed an Economic Develop-
ment Authority to manage these


ENDLESS SUMMER


monies.
The EDA receives applica-
tions regularly and sends them
to all three municipalities and
the County Commission to
rank. EDA is not bound by the
recommendations.
This session there is only one
private sector job creation
application and three infrastruc-
ture projects.
One is $450,000 for phases I
and II of the Vandolah Water

Candidates To Meet


With Voters Tuesday


By LAUREN RAULERSON
For The Herald-Advocate
In preparation for the upcom-
ing primary election, several
community organizations are
hosting political events next
week.
On Tuesday evening, two
political events will be taking
place for community members
to attend. The Hardee County
Chamber of Commerce and
Farm Bureau are teaming up to
host "Politics in the Park" and
The Hardee County Builders
Association is putting on a
"Meet and Greet." -
While these events are at dif-
ferent venues and the candi-
dates will be playing different
roles at each, both are taking


place in order to familiarize the
community *with the issues,
candidates and their platforms.
Politics in the Park will be the
first event of )he evening. This
event is for community voters
wishing to meet and greet the
politicians running for local,
state and federal offices. The
event will be in Heritage Park
on Main Street from 4 to 7 p.m.
According to Chamber Exe-
cutive Director Casey Dickson,
while there will be no refresh-
ments in the park, the chamber
has encouraged Main Street
restaurants to be open during
the event. The new Irish-
themed pub and restaurant

The new academic year gears up this Monday as a host of school employees return to work and year-round per-
sonnel finish final preparations in anticipation of the first day of classes on Aug. 18. But some familiar faces will be
missing from the busy scene. The Hardee County School Board recently held a brief reception for its newest retirees,
with Schools Superintendent Dennis Jones noting, "Someone iS reading a book, and you had a part in that. Someone
is a high-paid professional making a lot of money, and you had a part in that. Someone is just a better person, and
you had a part in that." And this, he said, is true of every school-district employee. "I don't care what your job was,
whether you had direct contact with children or were behind the scenes, you made the process work," Jones said.
Honored were retirees Marjorie Brynes-Lampke, 12 years; Harriet Watson, 31 years; Bessie Outley, 35 years; Bob
Beavers, 30 years; Larry Cook, 27-1/2 years; Yvonne Rosenthal, 25 years; Mary Ann Holton, 29 years; Caroline
Mackay, 34 years; Virginia Ingram, 31-1/2 years; Judy Albritton, 41 years; Suzanne Lowenberg, 25 years; Carol
Pelham, 25 years; and Mildred Smith, 37 years. Present for the reception and flanked by Jones and School Board
Chairman Tanya Royal are retirees (from left) Beavers, Outley, Brynes-Lampke and Watson.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


A high-level meeting was held Tuesday morning at the DeSoto
County Courthouse regarding the U.S. 17 four-lining project.
There were officials from Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee counties
there to push for the project:
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan hosted the meeting. His special
guests were Florida Secretary of Transportation Stephanie
Kopelousos and State Sen. J.D. Alexander. About 15 officials from
Hardee County attended.
Buchanan said U.S. four-laning was his No. 1 priority. He is
on the House Transportation Committee. "I think we will get it
done. It has been too long. We need it now."
There are three remaining projects in DeSoto and two in south-
ern Hardee for the Highway to be four-laned.
Kopelousos estimated the total cost at $292 million, of which
$140 million is for right-of-way. She oversees a statewide trans-
portation budget of $8 billion and 7,000 employees. "Our agency
is committed to Highway 17. We have spent $85 million on Hwy.
17 in the last 10 years."
The key issue is funding. As Floridians are driving less, the
collection of gasoline taxes is less. Gas taxes are used to build
roads and buy right-of-way. Donations of right-of-way will help.
There are three stages in a highway project design, right-of-
way acquisition, and construction. Two DeSoto projects have the
'design plans completed. One Hardee project has the design under-
way, said Kopelousos.
Complete four-laning has been a dream for many for over 40
years. The state has many other transportation needs as well. Some
key reasons for the Hwy. 17 project include safety, hurricane evac-
uation, and economic development.
Buchanan said the project requires a partnership of federal,
state and local agencies.
The meeting was quite positive and hopeful for the four-laning
completion to be done between the decade of 2010 and 2020, I pre-
dict.

School begins in Hardee County on Monday, Aug. 18.

The third annual Labor Day celebration in Bowling Green will
be held Sept. 1, reports the Harrington, Liston and Lunsford Plan-
ning Committee. The day will honor the late Maggie Harrington,
Flossie Listen and Mark Lunsford and their contributions to the
Bowling Green community. For more information call 445-0760 or
375-2562.

Winona Hansen, a Hardee resident for 30 years, is upset thit
analog televisions with antennas will need a converter by February
2009 to become digital TV.
"Citizens of the USA need to be speaking to stop the govern-
ment from doing this to your TVs. They changed our street address
and now this! Call or write your senator, congressman and
President Bush. The address is in the government section of your
telephone book."

A-summer NFL sports drama has been what will Brett Farve
do this fall. Who will he play for?
One mini-drama ended this summer when Miami Dolphin
defensive end Jason,Taylor, in Bill Parcell's doghouse for partici-
pating in "Dancing with the Stars," was moved to the Washington
Redskins.

A college football drama this fall will be who will win the
most games FSU's Bobby Bowden or Penn State's Joe Paterno.
Bowden leads Paterno in career coaching wins by one.

And how will the Hardee Wildcats do, after going 6-4 last year
and being district runner-up in the first year of head coach Tim
Price.

Florida's orange crop for 2007-08 was 169.7 million boxes,
compared with 129 million boxes the year before, an increase of
over 31 percent.
U.S. orange juice consumption has declined for the past seven
years, reported Kevin Bouffard of the Lakeland Ledger on Aug. 5.
Consumption is down 5 percent this year, and OJ consumer prices
are up 5 percent.
Price per pound solids to growers this year averaged $1.39 for
earlies, mids and valencias. Last year was unusually high at $1.95
for earlies and mids and $2.25 for valencias.
OJ imports to the U.S. were up 20 percent this year.
OJ inventory held by Florida's juice processors this year is
expected to be about 600 million gallons, compared with 363 mil-
lion gallons last year. This will tend to keep prices to growers at
lower levels.
Orange juice is a wonderful health beverage and tastes great.
It is not considered a staple like milk and bread, wrote Bouffard.
"After people buy bread, potatoes and gasoline, I don't know
if they can afford to buy" as much orange juice as in the past, said
Wauchula citrus grower Jay Clark, immediate past president of
Florida Citrus Mutual.

In the upcoming presidential election race, a recent Gallup
Poll has shown Barack Obama and John McCain about dead-even.

John Reaves, 58, a well-known former Florida Gator and pro-
fessional quarterback from Tampa, last week was arrested for
cocaine possession. We hope he conquers this problem. His son
David is quarterbacks coach for Steve Spurrier at South Carolina.
John Reaves was an All-American at Florida and passed for
over 7,500 yards. His NFL career was hampered by drugs and alco-
hol but he overcame the problem and later played for the Tampa
Bay Bandits.

Atlanta Braves sportscaster Skip Caray died in his sleep on
Sunday. His dad was Harry Caray, the famous broadcaster of the
Chicago Cubs. Skip broadcast Atlanta games for 33 years.
Some of my other favorite sportscasters have included Otis
Boggs and Mick Hubert for the Florida Gators and Gene
Deckerhoff for FSU and the Bucs. I like Howard Cosell for boxing
and in the NFL booth on Monday nights with Frank Gifford and
Don Meredith. I like Major League Baseball announcers Dizzy
Dean and Buddy Blattner. Keith Jackson was outstanding as col-
lege football announcer.
Hardee Wildcat football announcers Wes Roe and Clint
Hendry are just beginning their broadcast car -,-


Finally, the County Com-
mission asked for some proof of
economic mitigation and desig-
nated Economic Development
Director Bill Lambert to work
out a suitable agreement with
Mosaic.
Lambert said last week that
Mosaic was more than agree-
able in completing the mitiga-
tion/growth plan. "They did not
debate the need for mitigation,
but went right to work on the
details of the plan," he said.
Parker Keen, Mosaic's vice-
president of land development,
explained. "As shareholders,
we recognize the value behind
the draglines. Young people
working in the mines know
there will be another future and
the company wants to move
toward priority projects to make
a future for them. Mosaic rec-
ognizes there is an economic
value to its land in there future
as well as now."

ECONOMIC NEED
The unincorporated area of
Hardee County is 632.6 square
miles. Of that, 320,165 acres, or
79.08 percent is designated
agriculture, with 65,473 acres
of conservation and/or wet-
lands. Just over one percent,
4,250 acres, is residential mixed
use and lesser amounts are in
public/institution, recreation,
rural or town center.
Of the agricultural-zoned
lands, 213,992 are actually in
Green Belt agriculture, while
106,173 of them are owned by
phosphate companies. .CF In-
dustries has 24,400 acres, but
Mosaic Fertilizer LLC has the
lion's share of 81,773 acres. Its
land, from east of the Peace
River west and south nearly to
the Manatee County line, is
interconnected.
Recent statistics show the per
capital income of Hardee
County to be $18,752, with the
median income about $28.6 and
19.5 percent of people in the
poorest income brackets. This
compares to the state per capital
of $34,001, median income of
$40,900 and 11.9 percent listed

INSURANCE
Albritton explained his plan
to the County Commission. The
state insurance office is trying
to get out of the insurance busi-
ness as the insurer of last resort
for many Floridians.
This year, the Legislature cre-
ated the opportunity for start-
up, take-out insurance compa-
nies to be set up with approval
of the state Department of In-
surance Regulation and the
Governor's Office. Already,
there are nearly a dozen take-
out companies in business.
Albritton's plan is to establish
the required management team
and capital to qualify as a
regional center. It requires suffi-
cient experienced underwriters
and insurance executives and is
expected to carry a minimum
$5 million surplus.
In turn, the state would hand
over 40,000 to 50,000 policies
to start, for $10 to $15 million
takeout policies, from farms,
ranches and homes all over
Florida.
Albritton explained that he
has been working with invest-
ment groups from Germany,
London and Bermuda as well as
Steve Rodenberry, a Tallahas-
see counselor who designed the
take-out system and Willis'
Reed LLC of New York, the
second largest broker in the
nation.
Investors naturally want to
know the financial advantages
of locating a regional office in
Wauchula and not the Jackson-
ville, Miami or Tampa insur-
ance centers of the state. The
EDA grant will show the local


backing and "tangible business
reason" to be located here,
noted Albritton. "It is essential.
Access to investors cannot hap-;
pen without this grant," he,
explained.
Bill Lambert, Economic De-
velopment Director and chair-
man of the EDA, explained that
EDA grants are reimbursement.
The applicant has to spend the
money first and meet the set of
criteria for job creation in order
to receive the money over the
next 18-24 months. If the
money is not used, it goes back
in the pot for another applicant.
Albritton also noted that the
location in a huge city is not as
important because of the elec-
tronic connections worldwide.
He hopes once his new building
is completed, it will become a
location for nearby support ser-
vices, such as law offices and
other personnel.
There is no building large
enough for the 100-150 em-
ployees and able to meet the
strict codes the state requires
for such a building, "which
must operate during a crisis
when there must be access to
insurance."
In addition to the new build-
ing, Albritton will have to meet
other parts of a state checklist,
such as ratio of liquid to avail-
able assets. He hopes to qualify
as the chief executive officer
(CEO) of the domestic insur-
ance management firm here,
assuring that it would remain in
Wauchula. "My wife won't let
me move," he quipped.


At 1 ne nerala-Aavocate,
we want accuracy to be a
given, not just our goal. If
you believe we have print-
ed an error in fact, please

review the information, and

tion or clarification, we will

The Economic Plan
To help the local economy,
Mosaic proposes to put its miti-
gation monies in the financial
pot early on, in the first 10 years
of the 25-year plan.
The agreement worked out
provides a total of $42 million
economic stimulation payments
in the first 10 years of mining.
The first $5 million will be due
within 30 days after all mining
permits are approved and min-
ing commences. The state
Department of Environmental
Protection has already adver-
tised its notice of intent to
approve an Environmental Re-
source Permit for the compa-
ny's mine plan.
If the county approves the
mine plan, the federal Environ-
mental Protection Agency will
comment on issues under the
Clean Water Act in relation to
wetland preservation. The fed-
eral Corps of Engineers will
then review the need for its
dredge and fill permit under, its
strict regulation of wetlands.
Mosaic's economic mitiga-
tion portion of the development
order has portions. In the first
two years, 30 days after mining
begins, and approximately a
year later, in conjunction with
severance tax monies, another
$5 million payment will be sent.
Of the $5 million, one-half mil-
lion ($500,000) will go directly
to the county's General Reve-
nue Fund.
The remaining $4.5 million
goes to the county Industrial
Development Authority for
decisions on capital investment
and infrastructure opportuni-
ties. Distribution of the money
can be in four primary ways to
help the county and the region.
1) Infrastructure such as
roads, turn lane, traffic signals,
water and waste water, landfill,
telecommunications and such
public utilities necessary for
economic development.
2) Tourism/visitor develop-
ment. Fossil-based ecotourism
will focus along the Peace
River and its tributaries.
Advertising and promotion of
the county are also appropriate.
3) Development of alterna-
tive water supply options, such


I


as reservoirs, ASR (Aquifer
Storage and Recovery) technol-
ogy, seasonal enhancement of
minimum flows or other tech-
nologies.
4) Creation of an economic
development catalyst project
such as an airport, commerce or
industrial park, alternative ener-
gy research center, health care
complex, or community cen-
ters/civic centers with visi-
tor/tourism connectivity. This
does not include government
infrastructure such as schools,
jails, libraries or public build-
ings.
In years three through 10 of
the economic agreement, the
annual payment will be not less
than $4 million per year, again
with $500,000 going into the
county General Revenue and
the balance to the IDA. The
amount will be based on tons
mined.

WHO MAKES DECISIONS
IDA current members are
Rick Justice, Tomas Macias,
Mike Manley, Lavon Cobb,
Jama Abbott, Marcus Shackel-
ford and Dana English. They
are also members of the Eco-
nomic Development Council,
along with Nancy Craft, Teresa
Crawford, John Barlow, Oralia
Flores, Keith Davis, Joe Albrit-
ton, Rick Knight and Lory
Durrance.
Lambert said the IDA will
work in conjunction with the
EDC, the Chamber of Com-
merce and the Economic De-
velopment Authority, the inde-
pendent board which approves
grants for the surplus severance
tax monies it receives each June
or July.
Members of the EDA are

Nutrition

Notes

Q: How much weight do
most people gain during the
holiday season?
A: The holidays can spell
trouble for anyone trying to lose
or maintain weight. While
many people begin the New
' ear feeling 5 to 10 pounds
heavier, such large gains are not
the norm. A study of nearly 200
adults published in the "New
England Journal of Medicine"
reported an average weight gain
of about one pound per person
from mid-November to early or
mid-January. Another study,
published by the University of
Oklahoma, found that, on aver-
age, college students gained
one pound within the two
weeks preceding and following
Thanksgiving break.
But it is important to note
that these averages obscure
individual differences among
study participants. In the former
study, those who were less
active than usual gained more
over the holiday season, while
those who reported increased
activity levels stayed about the
same weight or even lost ,a
pound or so. In both studies,
people who were already over-
weight gained more than partic-
ipants who began the study at a
healthy weight. Also, although
fewer than 10 percent of the
adults studied gained more than
five pounds over the holiday
season, overweigtaand obese
subjects were much more likely
to be in this high-weight-gain
group.
While gaining one or two
pounds doesn't seem like much,
many people retain the excess
weight from year to year, con-
tributing to the gradual increase
in body weight that frequently
occurs during adulthood. To
help combat holiday heft, be
sure to keep physically active.
Also, don't let an extra treat or
two derail your efforts. The
"I've blown it" outlook usually'
leads people to really overdo it,
which could end up affecting
your weight.

LOSING GROUND


Hardee's Average Teacher Salary Rank
Compared to the Other 66 Counties in Florida





Ten years ago, only 35 counties in our state provided a better average salary
for teachers. By 2007, 53 counties have a better pay scale.

State statistics for this past year indicate that teachers in every one of our
neighboring counties had a higher average salary, ranging from $1,250 in Polk,
to $7,220 more in Manatee. In DeSoto, with comparable size and student
enrollment, an average teacher earns almost $1,800 more per year.

Our outstanding teachers and staff have lost substantial financial ground
under the watch of the current administration! We must slow down the revolving
door of teacher departures that our county has seen in recent years.

Q: How nutritious is wat-
ermelon compared to other
fruits?
A: Each cup of watermelon
(about half a large slice) offers
about 13 milligrams of vitamin:
C (14 to 17 percent of currently
recommended daily intake).
This is not as high as can-
taloupe or honeydew melon, or
other high-C fruits such as kiwi,
strawberries and oranges, but as
one of seven to ten servings of
fruits and. vegetables daily, it
makes an important contribu-
tion. Watermelon is also an out-
standing source of lycopene, an
antioxidant phytochemical
linked with lower risk of
prostate and other cancers.
Lycopene is the carotenoid that
gives tomatoes, watermelon,
guava, and red and pink grape-
fruit their characteristic color.
Finally, watermelon also offers
a weight-control bonus. A one-
cup serving can satisfy a sweet
tooth with just 49 calories, mak-
ing it one of the fruits least con-
centrated in sugar and calories.
Q: What is "prehyperten-
sion"?
. A: If your blood pressure is
between 120/80 mm Hg and
139/89 mm Hg, you are one of
the 59 million Americans with
prehypertension. You don't have
high blood pressure (hyperten-
sion) now, but are likely to
develop it in the future.
Researchers say that even blood
pressures in this range increase
a person's risk for heart attack,
stroke and kidney disease.
A recent study confirms pre-
vious findings that a healthy

U


'festyle can turn things around.
After 18 months, the odds of
developing hypertension were
substantially reduced with
weight loss of even 15 pounds,
three hours a week of moderate
exercise and moderately limited
sodium and alcohol consump-
tion. Some studies suggest that
limiting saturated fat and caf-
feine may also help blood pres-
sure control, though these
results are less certain. All of
these steps do much more than
,protect you from blood pres-
sure's damage to the heart and
blood vessels. These same steps
also lower your risk of cancer.
Q: Can soft drinks damage
teeth even if they're diet
drinks?
A: Yes, if consumed fre-
quently. These drinks contain
acid that can gradually dissolve
tooth enamel with long-term
exposure. Enamel the thin,
hard outer layer of our teeth -
maintains tooth structure and
acts as a barrier to decay. When
enamel wears away, teeth
become cracked, discolored and
are more sensitive to hot and,
cold. While regular sugar-con-
taining soft drinks seem to con-
tain more acid and promote
more erosion than diet soft
drinks, both are far more acidic
than water.
Also beware of alternative
beverages like lemon ice tea
and sports drinks. These options
contain phosphoric and. citric
acids and have just as much
erosion-promoting acid as car-
bonated soft drinks.
Besides' limiting the amount
of acidic beverages you drink,
the Academy of General Dent-
istry recommends consuming
them in limited time periods
,rather than sipping them
throughout the day. You can
further reduce exposure to the
acid by using a straw. Also,
don't rush to brush your teeth
right after consuming these
drinks: tooth enamel remains
soft and more susceptible to
mechanical abrasion for about
an hour after consumption.
Instead, rinse your mouth with
water, or chew sugarless gum to
stimulate saliva and help neu-
tralize the acid.
Q: Does caffeine affect fi-
brocystic breast disease?
A: Fibrocystic breast disease
is a condition in which women
develop noncancerous lumps in
their breasts. Some experts urge
women with this condition to
avoid caffeine. But current
research does not indicate a
strong link between the two.
More studies are needed.
In the meantime, women
with fibrocystic disease might
benefit from trying to reduce or
avoid caffeine. If no effect
appears after several months,
these women could resume hav-
ing caffeine in moderation.
Q: What's the latest re-
search on preventing ovarian
cancer?
A: Prevention of ovarian
cancer is especially important
because it often has no symp-
toms in early stages. As a result,
it is frequently diagnosed at a
more advanced stage, resulting
in poorer survival rates than
some other common cancers. At
this time, there is no consensus
in the research community
regarding proven approaches to
lower risk for developing ovari-
an cancer.


According to some research,
diets high in certain flavonoid
compounds that are found in
vegetables, fruits, beans and tea
may lower a woman's risk.
Other research shows benefit
from greater consumption of
carotenoids, another phyto-
chemical found in a wide range
of produce. According to the
landmark report on diet and.
cancer prevention from the
American Institute for Cancer,
Research, limited evidence sug-
gests that non-starchy vegeta-
bles may protect against the dis-
ease.
Some research shows that
breastfeeding may lower a
woman's risk probably.
through its impact on hor-
mones. And, although results
are mixed, limited studies sug-
gest that obesity may increase
risk for this cancer.
For now, women are best
advised not to focus on a single
potential link highlighted in one
or two studies, but to follow
current guidelines to lower
overall cancer risk. General rec-
ommendations include follow-
ing a diet that provides a wide
variety of vegetables and other
plant-based foods, getting regu-
lar physical activity and being
mindful of weight control.
Q: If I eat healthfully dur-
ing the week, can I splurge on
the weekends?
A: Unfortunately, two-and-
a-half days of excess can easily
undo the benefits of eating
healthfully the rest of the week.
While an occasional indulgence
is certainly okay, refrain from
grabbing everything you see.
Instead, choose a few selections
that really give you pleasure
and let other options pass.
While many people are wary

up. One solution: avoid overlyi
restricting yourself during the
:week. That way you won't head
into the weekend feeling
deprived and will be better able
to handle temptation.
You also might consider re-
.thinking your definition of a
"treat." Instead of high-calorie
food that offers little nutritional
value, why not embrace the!
opportunity to try new foods?i
Sample an unfamiliar but tanta-
lizing tropical fruit for a snack
or dessert, or relax with a spe-
cialty tea. Finally, if food and
drink splurges have been your
way to reward yourself and
relax after a hard week, experi-:
ment with non-food ways to:
accomplish the same goal. Treat
yourself to a movie, spend somei
quality time with an old friend.
or enjoy time outdoors.
Q: How do you prepare
jicama?
A: Jicama (hee-kah-mah) is
a root vegetable that looks like
a cross between a turnip and a
potato. You can peel it, slice it
into strips and serve it raw in
salads or with a low fat dip. You
can also cook it by steaming,
stir-frying, or oven roasting.
Jicamas have a mild flavor and
crunchy texture.
You should choose smaller
ones because they're Jess
woody. They should be free of
bruises. A whole cup of raw
jicama contains only about 50
calories. They are an excellent
source of vitamin C and a good
source of dietary fiber.
Creativity involves an inces-
sant exchange between play
and technical mastery.

Most Americans Admit To Driving While Distracted


Feel like you're the only one
on the road not talking on a cell
phone? Odds are, you're proba-
bly right.
Nearly three-quarters of
Americans admit they drive
while distracted by activities
such as talking on the phone,
texting, or fiddling with an MP3
player, according to a new sur-
vey by Nationwide Insurance.
More than 80 percent said
they talk on "the phone while
driving and 40 percent of
Americans between the ages of
16 and 30 admitted to writing




Nutrition

Notes

Q: Does alcohol affect
sleep?
A: Yes. Alcohol consump-
tion can lead to lower quality,
less restorative sleep. Although
alcoholic beverages act as a
temporary sedative and may
help you to fall asleep initially,
overall sleep patterns are dis-
rupted. Alcohol induces a
lighter stage of sleep from
which we are more easily awak-
ened. It also lessens the amount
of time spent in REM sleep, the
state in which dreams occur;.
this sleep state is considered
important for learning and over-
all mental health. Also, while
alcohol can reduce the amount
of time it takes to fall asleep, its
effectiveness gradually wears
off in people who drink alcohol
frequently.

Trees outstrip most people in
the extent and depth of their
work for the public good.

drivers have been hit or almost

tributed to the prevalence of
driving while distracted, or
DWD. Almost two-thirds of
drivers said their colleagues,
friends and family expect them
to be available by cell or other

vices at all times.

Cutting

The Cost Of

Electricity
While home energy costs are
up nearly 15 percent, according
to the U.S. Department of
Energy, you don't have to get
hot under the collar over energy
bills.
What You Can Do
Here are hints that can help:
Conduct a household ener-
gy audit to find where you use
the most energy. Check insula-
tion levels, look for holes and
cracks around doors and win-
dows, check for openings in,
fireplace dampers and examine
the lighting and plumbing.
Get Energy Star appliances
and home electronics, including
water heaters, dishwashers and
furnaces. These products meet
stringent efficiency criteria
established by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy and U.S. En-
vironmental Protection Agency.
Always turn lights off in
any room not in use or install
timers or sensors to reduce the
amount of time a light is on.
Replace old lightbulbs with flu-
orescent tubes and energy-effi-
cient compact fluorescent lights
(CFLs). Fluorescent lighting is
much more efficient and lasts
four to 10 times longer.
What Others Can Do
While efficiency is an impor-
tant first step in addressing the
energy challenge, the nation's
long-term needs will require a
substantive national invest-
ment.
The Electric Power Research
Institute estimates that it will
take a research investment of
$1.4 billion a year from now
until 2030 to develop new tech-
nology such as carbon capture
and storage for our power
plants.
"To develop the technology
needed to keep the lights on and
rates affordable, the federal
government must exercise com-
mitted leadership and provide
funding," said Glenn English,
CEO of the National Rural
Electric Cooperative Associa-
tion (NRECA).
This national effort could
include establishing and ex-
panding academic centers on
energy efficiency at colleges
and universities nationwide,
helping accelerate technology
innovation and training effi-
ciency experts. In addition, the
federal government can help
spur the technological ingenuity
that America has relied on for
centuries.

important way to lower month-
ly energy costs while keeping

thing as safe DWD."
According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration, there are 115 road
fatalities each day in the United
States, and distracted driving
causes 80 percent of road acci-
dents.
"Clearly, distracted driving
has taken over our roadways,
and our survey shows that no
one is immune-no matter how
safe 'they think they are,"
Windsor added. "The bottom
line is, if you do it in the
kitchen, bathroom or office,
you shouldn't be doing it while
driving.
"When it comes to preventing
distracted driving, laws, compa-
ny policies and education are
important; however, individual
Americans-whether we've had
our license for four months or
four decades-are in the driver's
seat when it comes to putting
the brakes on DWD," said
Windsor.
Safety Tips
Build time into your trip to
stop for food and necessary cell
phone use.
Give yourself time to react
to other drivers; keep a two-sec-
ond cushion between you and
the car in front of you-four sec-
onds if the weather is bad.
Secure cargo that may
move around while you are
driving. Do not reach down to

QUESTION: Why is it so important that someone with diabetes get their eyes examined?
ANSWER: Everyone with diabetes should have a dilated eye examination at least once a
year. About 45% of diabetics have some form of diabetic retinopathy. Diabetes is the leading
cause of blindness in working people. People with severe diabetic retinopathy can

reduce their risk of blindness by 95%
with timely treatment and followup care.

Batting Average Versus Credit Scores


Many Americans are knowl-
edgeable when it comes to
sports scores and stats. You can
chat with a guy sitting next to
you on the train and he can tell
you right away how many yards
his favorite football team
rushed last year or the current
standings of his hometown

baseball team.
However, it's a different ball
game when you ask people
about their credit score.
Surveys in recent years have
indicated that the majority of
Americans do not understand
what credit scores mean and
many who struggle because of
low credit scores have no idea
what steps they can take to
improve their credit situation.
Loretta Abrams, senior vice
president of Consumer Affairs
at HSBC-North America, en-
courages consumers to learn
and enhance their credit scores,
which affect every aspect of our
daily lives, from purchasing
homes and cars to finding
employment and renting an
apartment.
Credit scores have been
developed to predict a con-
sumer's creditworthiness.
Credit-reporting agencies use
a formula to crunch all the stats
from a person's credit activities
into one number-usually be-
tween 300 and 850. The higher
the score, the better (just like a
baseball batting average).
A high. credit. score means
that a consumer may have
access to loans and other finan-
cial services at a more favorable


rate. For example, an average
homeowner can save thousands
of dollars in interest over the
term of a loan if his or her cred-
it score is above 700, compared
to someone whose score.falls
below 660.
In addition, employers, insur-
ers and landlords are increas-
ingly incorporating individuals'
credit reports into their lineups
to inform their decision mak-
ing. Therefore, understanding
credit scores and maintaining
good credit history are critical
to your financial high standing
in today's challenging economy.
A baseball player increases
his batting average by taking
more batting practice and work-
ing on his swing. Similarly,
there are proven methods to
improve your credit score. The
first step is to check your credit
report.
The FACT Act of 2003
allows consumers to receive a
free credit report, from each of
the three credit-reporting agen-
cies, once each year. Take
advantage of this benefit;
request your report and check it
for accuracy. If your credit
score needs to be raised, devel-
op a plan and begin now to
adopt new behaviors that will


have a positive impact on your
credit score.
Keep your eye on the ball
with the following steps: Create
a budget, pay all bills on time to
keep credit card balances low
and only open new credit
accounts when absolutely nec-
essary. If you want to increase
your knowledge in personal
finance, there are all kinds of
free resources available on the
Internet. For example, HSBC-
North America has a financial
education Web site,
YourMoneyCounts.com, which
provides consumers with free
information on a wide range of
topics, from credit scores to
homeownership preservation.
As sports fans are tracking
the batting average of their
favorite baseball players for the
season, we also encourage
everyone to spend time learning
how to manage money and
track and improve his or her
credit score.
Good credit means more
resources are accessible to you
in life, gives you the peace of
mind to enjoy all the games you
want and, more important,
offers you the hope for a win-
ning and healthy personal
financial future.

Seniors Fight Age-Related Eye

Disease With Breakthrough Treatment


Bonnie Conway began to
experience vision loss due to an
eye disease Jcnown as wet age-
related macular degeneration,
or wet AMD, she worried that
she might have to leave her job.
As Borough Manager of her
local community, Conway re-
lies heavily on her sight to com-
plete her bookkeeping, filing
and letter writing duties.
More than 15 million
American seniors live with
some form of AMD, a leading
cause of blindness in people
over 60. There are two forms of
AMD, dry and wet. While all
cases begin as the dry form, it is
the wet form that accounts for
about 90 percent of all AMD-
related blindness.
Wet AMD can result in sud-
den and severe loss of a per-
son's central vision, and can
worsen rapidly without treat-
ment. Like many of the 1.7 mil-
lion people with the advanced
form of the disease, Conway
had difficulty reading and the
faces of her friends and loved
ones became blurry.
"I was a big reader. The most
frustrating thing for me was los-
ing the ability to read without a
magnifying glass," said
Conway. "I started to accept
that my wet AMD would even-
tually get so bad that I'd have to
give up my job."
But in August of 2006,


Conway's eye doctor, a retina
specialist, began treating her
with monthly injections of
Lucentis(r) (ranibizumab injec-
tion), which is approved by the
U.S. Food and Drug
Administration for the treat-
ment of wet AMD. Since start-
ing treatment, Conway's vision
has improved from 20/80 to
20/40 on the eye chart.
"Bonnie was one of the first
patients in our practice to
receive Lucentis, and because
she's continued to come for
treatment every month, her
Vision has improved and she's
been able to continue her nor-
mal activities," said Dr. Miguel
Busquets of Associates in
Ophthalmology.
In clinical studies of
Lucentis, nearly all patients (90
percent) treated once a month
maintained their vision for up to
two years. About 40 percent of
patients' vision actually
improved by three lines or more
on the study eye chart at two
years, though a few patients
have experienced some vision
loss.
Because AMD advances so
quickly, and can cause sudden
and irreversible loss of vision,
early diagnosis and treatment
are critical. The National Eye
Institute recommends that peo-
ple aged 60 or older schedule
eye exams every two years, and


anyone who notices changes in
vision should receive an eye
exam right away.
Lucentis is a prescription
medication given by injection
into the eye. Lucentis has been
associated with detached retina
and serious eye infection and
should not be used in patients
who have an infection in or
around the eye. Increases in eye
pressure have been seen within
one hour of an injection.
Although uncommon, condi-
tions associated with eye- and
non-eye-related blood clots
(arterial thromboembolic
events) may occur. Serious side
effects included inflammation
inside the eye and, rarely,
effects related to the injection
procedure such as cataract. The
most common non-eye-related
side effects were nose and
throat infection, headache, and
respiratory and urinary tract
infections. The most common
eye-related side effects were the
feeling that something is in
your eye, and increased tears.
If your eye becomes red, sensi-
tive to light, painful or has a
change in vision, you should
seek immediate care from your
eye doctor.
For full prescribing informa-
tion, talk to your doctor or call
866-LUCENTIS (866-582-
3684) or visit www.LUCEN-
TIS.com.


This is the real secret of life-to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and
now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.

Mr. & Mrs. Scott Osborn
Jaime Tish & Scott


Osborn
Jaime Nicole Tish became the
bride of Scott Michael Osborn
in the Plaza de la Fontana at
Mission Inn Resort in Howie-
in-the-Hills on March 29.
The bride, of Rochester
,Hills, Mich., is the daughter of
Allen and Cathy Tish of
Bowling Green. The groom,
also of Rochester Hills, is the
son of Lawrence and Lynne
Osborn of Muskegon, Mich.
Officiating at the ceremony
was the Rev. John Harris of the
First Baptist Church of Orlan-
do. Vocalist Nicole Sallee sang
"From This Moment" as the
couple blended sand from
Michigan with sand from
Florida. Music was provided by
a string quartet with Mark
Theilen, conductor of the
Lakeland Imperial Symphony
Orchestra.
The outdoor ceremony at
Mission Inn, where the bride's
grandfather caddied as a young
man, featured an aisle runner
made by the groom's mother
and hand-painted by the bride's
mother. Arrangements of purple
and yellow orchids, irises,
tulips and lilies graced graced
both sides of the runway.
The bride, given in marriage
by her father, wore a strapless
mermaid-cut gown with sweet-
heart neckline. The gown was
accentuated with beaded and
scalloped lace, and was com-
plemented by a semi-chapel
train and a cathedral-length
veil. She carried a bouquet of
ivory orchids, yellow tulips,
purple irises and grape hya-
cinths.
As special remembrances, the
bride pinned her grandmother's
wedding ring inside her gown
while the groom wore a wrist-
watch and a gold chain which
had belonged to his grandfa-
thers.
Attending to the bride as
matron of honor was Jennifer
O'Brian of Jacksonville. Serv-
ing as bridesmaids were Eliza-
beth Cross, the groom's sister,
of Muskegon, Mich.; Erica
Hoff, the groom's sister, of


Are Wed
Holland, Mich.; and Erin
Mason, of Chuluota. All wore
gowns of crepe in amethyst and
ivory.
Best man to the groom was
Joshua Cross of Fort Lauder-
dale. Groomsmen included
Brendan Stuff, the groom's
cousin, of Muskegon, Mich.;
Austin Tish, brother of the
bride, of Ona; and Todd
Vanderlaan, of Rochester Hills,
Mich. Ushers were the groom's
brothers-in-law, Tom Cross and
Eskild Hoff, both of Michigan.
Following the ceremony, a
wedding reception was held in
the Legerids Ballroom at the
Mission Inn. Tables were
adorned with yellow tulips and
curly willow centerpieces on
ivory linens with purple
accents. Guests were served a.
dinner of. pork loin or pan-
seared chicken with white-
cheddar artichoke sauce. Each
was also given chocolates and
rock candy wrapped in the cou-
ple's photograph.
A three-tiered hexagonal
wedding cake was sweetened
with ivory butter-cream icing
and decorated with swirls and
dots and a cascade of purple
sugar irises and yellow tulips. A
chocolate marble groom's cake
replicated the 17th hole at the
TPC Sawgrass Golf Course.
After a honeymoon trip to
Sandals Resort in St. Lucia, the
couple are at home in Rochester
Hills, Mich.
The bride is a 2000 graduate
of Hardee Senior High School.
She earned a master's degree at
the University of Central Flori-
da in 2006 in communicative
sciences and disorders. She is
employed as a speech patholo-
gist for HCR Manorcare in
Rochester Hills, Mich.
The groom is a 1998 graduate
of Mona Shores High School,
and earned a degree in comput-
er animation in 2003 at Full
Sail. He is employed by Volks-
wagen of America in Rochester
Hills, Mich., as a communica-
tions and graphics specialist.

Rise & Shine.
By Ted Simonson
'TIME' GETS IT WRONG
"Time'* magazine tackles the whole subject of human morali-
ty in a recent issue, and finds that religion isn't even worth men-
tioning.
The possibility that a meaningful God or a meaningless god
for that matter is given no space in a lead article of more than
3,000 words is surprising if not alarming. It is breathtaking that a
major magazine could take on a cover story like "What Makes Us
Good/Evil?" and leave out so much that is basic.
I guess I shouldn't be too amazed though, that the usual god-
less authors and teacher come out for atheism. (What else is new?)
The surprising thing is that the rest of society sees nothing amiss
here.,
The truest and most effective proponents of godlessness are
almost never those who are most blatant about their mission. The
real damage is almost always caused by those who see no problem
in going to church every Sunday yet talking about a hundred top-
ics during the week and leaving God out of the conversation. This
is "practical atheism," and is much more destructive than a lecture
by Richard Dawkins or Sam Harris.
Let's face it: If there is a God who created this marvelous uni-
verse and everyone of us as well, He isn't going to be worried
about a few errant theologians jousting intellectual windmills. But
He's not going to take it lightly when ordinary people ignore His
existence.
The most celebrated diamond is the Koh-i-noor, which
was presented to Queen Victoria in 1850 by the East
India Company.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His bene-
fits.
Psalm 103:2 (NIV)


FRIDAY
For we brought nothing into
this world, and we cannot
take anything out of it; but if
we have food and clothing,
with these we should be
content. But those who
desire to be rich fall into
temptation, into a snare, into
many senseless and hurtful
desires that plunge men into
ruin and destruction. For the
love of money is the root of
all evils.
I Timothy 6:7-10a (RSV)
SATURDAY
A sterling reputation is better
than striking it rich; a gra-
cious spirit is better than
money in the bank. The rich
and the poor shake hands
as equals -God made
them both!
Proverbs 22:1-2 (ME)
SUNDAY
What causes conflicts .and
quarrels among you? . .
You want something which
you cannot have, and so you
are bent on murder; you are
envious, and cannot attain
your ambition, and so you
quarrel and fight.
James 4:1a-2 (NEB)
MONDAY
Do not wish for the silver
and, told that they have,
don't take it for yourselves,
or you will be trapped by it.
Deuteronomy 7:25b (NCV)
TUESDAY
Never act from motives of
rivalry or personal vanity, but
in humility. Think more of
one another than you do of
yourselves. None of you
should think only of his own
affairs, but each should learn
to see things from other peo-
ple's point of view.
Philippians 2: 3-4 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
The Lord says, "Let not the
wise man bask in his wis-
dom, nor the mighty man in
his might, nor the rich man
in his riches. Let them boast
in this alone. That they'truly
know Me and understand
that I am the Lord of justice
and of righteousness, whose
loveis steadfast, and that I
love to be this way.
Jeremiah 9:23-24 (TLB)
Creativity involves an inces-
sant exchange between play
and technical mastery.

I


Full Circle
By C.J. Mouser


MY CUP RUNNETH OVER
If we try real hard, we parents can remember what it was like
to be young.
I didn't think it was really possible to recall what it was like to
not know much about anything but to be so danged eager to learn
that it left us breathless. To know nothing about the tools of life,
much less how to use them. To build experience slowly, over time,
and fail as often as we succeeded.
I didn't think it was possible to relive those feelings until my
oldest daughter, Jill, threatened to quit her job.
"This is the best job you've ever had, and it pays well. Why
would you ever consider quitting?"
"I hate it! There's constant stress and they expect too much,"
she responded.
"You say that about every job you ever had. Look ... the truth
is, there is no such thing as an easy job that we like everything
about."
"Mom, it's complete chaos. The phones ring constantly, and I
get yelled at all the time. I'm trying to learn but I can't stand being
yelled at."
"Nothing worth doing is ever easy, kid. It'll get easier with
time."
"It's been four months. I don't know if I'm cut out for this type
of work."
"I repeat: You need to learn to be cut out for it. It may be a trial
by fire, but some of the best learning is done under stress; you tend
to learn, things that are never forgotten."
She looked at me doubtfully, indecision cutting furrows in her
brow. What did she want from'me? Permission to quit what I con-
sidered to be the best opportunity she had ever had? It wasn't going
to happen.
"Give it some more time," I said.
Later that evening I lay in bed reliving the conversation. This
job... her job... was a gift from God; an office position, paid hol-
idays, sick days, paid health insurance. This was not a job to throw
away.
Sometime just before sleep arrived, a memory came floating to
me. It was 1984 and I was in an office, at a job that I hated from
day one. It was my first office job. Answering the phone was an
exercise in torture. I cut peoDle off, sent calls to the wrong people,

left people dangling on hold indefinitely. I got fussed at relentless-
ly and it all seemed so overwhelming, I didn't know how I would
ever have the courage or ability to learn it all properly.
To make matters worse, there was no support from the other
office personnel. They reveled in my failures, laughed at my mis-
takes, placed secret bets on how long I would last.
To put it simply, I ran like a child from the bogeyman. I quit,
overwhelmed with shame and the feeling that I would never
amount to much. I quit, and somebody in the office collected on the
bet.
Now here Jill was, asking my permission to quit, probably ror
the same reasons. Her mistake is the fact that she was asking
instead of doing, because to this day I regret tucking my tail and
running, but... I remember how agonizing it was. Would I have
stuck it out if I had asked someone for permission, and been talked
out of it?
The next day she came home from work, a wry smile on her
face. I listened when she talked about one of the bosses yelling at
her. I was expecting her to say "I quit," and defy me to have a prob-
lem with it.
"Mom," she said, and giggled, "at first I-was ready to cry, but
then I got to really looking at him. He was all red in the face and
throwing papers and I... I couldn't help it, I just started laughing."
I gasped. "What happened?"
"First he looked mad, but then he started to look a little sheep-
ish and then he started laughing, too. It was like this big wall fell

Light One Candle
By Stephanie Raha
The Christophers


STAND UP FOR STANDARDS
Not long ago, a couple of troubling stories showed up on the
news within just a few days of each other.
The first event had its start last summer. Some teens ordered
drinks at a Taco Bell drive-through window near Orlando. When
they were served by Jessica Ceponis, the 16-year-old driver tossed
a large soda and ice-filled cup in her face while a 15-year-old
recorded the event so that they could post it on the Web. Then
they sped away.
Oh, and if that wasn't nasty enough, they shouted "Fire in the
Hole" while they were doing it. This is a warning shouted by sol-
diers when they throw grenades at enemies. Now, it's become the
name for this type of assault masquerading as a prank and spread-
ing in popularity.
When Ceponis learned from a customer that video of the
attack was on YouTube, she decided to track down the teens. In
time she was able to make contact with them. Apparently they were
only too happy to brag about their feat and how funny it all was.
Ceponis got in touch with the mother of one of them, and
brought the information to the police. The ultimate result: A judge
ordered each of the two perpetrators to pay a $30 cleanup fee to the
restaurant, do 100 hours of community service and to create a
video to be posted online with their apologies to the victim.
Charges are to be dropped only when the terms of the sentences are
met.
The second disquieting story was about a hit-and-run accident
in Hartford, Conn. A 78-year-old man was mowed down by a
speeding car after leaving a grocery store. Angel Arce Torres, who
was well-known and well-liked in the neighborhood, was para-
lyzed from the neck down. A surveillance video of the street later
revealed more than the horrifying moment when Torres was struck
and left lying on the street in the middle of the street. It also showed
'several people first approaching him and then leaving without
offering any aid or comfort, or even trying to stop oncoming traf-
fic.
The graphic video stunned viewers who couldn't believe that
someone anyone could just be left to lie there without even
one person reaching out to him.
To be fair, four people did call 911 and a police cruiser arrived
soon afterward and got the critically injured man the medical help
he urgently needed. Still, a neighbor was hurt and not one pedes-
trian or motorist was willing to stop and be a Good Samaritan.
"It makes me angry and leaves me hurt," said Angel Arce, the
victim's son. "To think of him there and no one to grab his hand, to
offer comfort. He was always there helping everyone in their time
of need, and in his time, no one was there for him."
There's no point in simply decrying the egregious lack of
mutual respect and personal responsibility shown in these two
events.
Whether a person chooses to attack and humiliate another or a
person chooses not to help an injured neighbor, sadly, the result is
Sthe same: the shrinking of conscience and the diminishing of char-
acter. But beyond the harm to any individual's mind and spirit, our
whole world becomes less humane and less sacred.
The next time any one of us has an ethical decision to make,
simply ask, what's right? And then do it.

Kathleen and Charles Whaley
enjoyed attending the Richard-
son family reunion held at
Pioneer Park on Saturday.
Granny Kat said she enjoyed
spending time with daughter
Mary Ann Wilson, husband
George, grandson Brac, and
great-grandchildren Avery and
Cole. Her sister, Willadean
Richardson of Tampa, and Lo-
leta Singletary and her husband
Carlston of Madison also
attended.
The Singletarys decided to
stay a few extra days, and the
family has spent time relaxing
and fishing.
Brother Carl Coker turned 85
Thursday. He and son Ronald
went fishing, catching 33 specs.
Later that evening the family
enjoyed a small gathering for
cake and ice cream. Happy
birthday, Brother Carl, and
many more.
Betty Richardson's sister-in-
law, Virginia Ann Dentz, and
,husband Dan of Hahira, Ga.,
came down for the Richardson
family reunion. While visiting,
Virginia and Dan decided to
spend their vacation helping
Betty build fences. After hot
and rainy 'days it was nice to
come in after work, put the feet
up and relax. It's great to have
family who care.
Sara Rochester and Bob
Quigley got married June 21 at
their home (The Big Red Barn)
on Platt Road. Their wedding
was the traditional country
wedding. Serving up Bruns-
wick stew, barbecue ribs, pork,
beef, chicken and all the trim-
mings, the couple also had a
bluegrass band entertaining
everyone.
Sara's daughter, Victoria
Eillott, and children from Phoe-
nix, Ala., son Frankie Turner of
Milledgeville, Ga., and son
Matthew Turner, wife Alice and
grandson Kevin of Maryland,
were all in attendance.
Sara's sister Hazel and hus-
band Gerald Wadsworth of Ala-
bama are staying with the Quig-
leys till they can find a home
here in the area. Gerald is
preaching. He and Hazel are
helping out at Hannah's House.
Congratulations to a sweet cou-
ple.
The Coker family reunion
was held Saturday in the fel-
lowship hall at Lake Dale Bap-


tist Church. Up to 35 people
were there. Many from Plant
City, Davenport, Arcadia and
around town enjoyed catching
up on family and friends.
The last week or so, the Lake
Dale residents have had the
pleasure of seeing nature at its
best. There have been a beauti-
ful buck, doe and fawns in our
area. Many have said how won-
derful it is to see wild animals
in their natural habit. As you
come through our area, please
remember to drive slow and
only take pictures.
Beauty is all around us if only
we take the time to look and lis-
ten.

or was it twice. Lucky's Donut. My thought-it-would-be-simple
search for a van seat was heading toward mini-expedition propqr-
tion.
God, all I need is a salvaged, You know, cheap seat. Minimal
hassle, please.
That's very close to what my wife and I prayed the night
before. Shrugged shoulders were all I found. And the prices? $350
to $600.
I needed a break from the search. Lucky served a favorite of
mine, shrimp fried rice. So tasty.
The Bible says: "Those led by the Spirit are sons of God."
Spirit led, even for a van seat? Sure. But sometimes we need to
stop. Yes, Stop, and see how the Spirit will lead us in God's direc-
tion.
I asked the only other patron, "Do you know where there's
another RV salvage place?" Soon I was out the door with a new
destination. When I made my final turn, I spotted a mega-RV deal-
er. But it only sold new rigs. I felt compelled to keep driving.
Hmmm. What's that sign say? "RV Surplus, Indoor Flea
Market."
Shorty, the man at the counter, said, "I've got one left." We
walked through two adjacent rooms. He unlocked a door. Down
three steps, he unlocked another door. "It's brand new. It's just
dusty," he said.
I got excited: "How much?" Shorty said, "Twenty dollars." I
questioned him about its lack of seatbelts. "I've got some upstairs;
I'll give them to you."
Is it difficult to tip the scales of your mind from lucky moment
to Spirit-led experience?
I handed Shorty the only money I had with me, a $20 bill. I left
the building grinning. I raised my hand heavenward: "Thank you,
Father."

CITRUS
Various amount of rainfall were received in and around citrus
producing areas, from over four inches in Ft. Pierce to less than ai
inch in Immokalee. Even with less rainfall this past week, canals
and lakes were still full and water was plentiful. Temperatures have
been warm again this week, reaching the lower 90s on several days
Activity in the groves included applications of summer oils, clean
ing ditches, fertilizing, mowing, and some hedging. Growers wer
combining efforts to address canker and psyllid control. Some
growers were abandoning or pushing groves severely infected
Where caretakers spent ample time maintaining groves, oranges
were progressing well with varying sizes between golf ball and
baseball size. Grapefruit were typically between baseball and soft
ball size. Overall, conditions were good in well-managed groves.

e Q: When nutrition experts
r recommend avoiding sugary
e drinks, do they mean fruit
e juice too?
S A: While a glass of 100 per-
cent fruit juice does contain
sugar the fruit's natural
sugar thanks to the addition-
al nutrients'and phytochemicals
it provides, fruit juice is catego-
rized differently than regular
high-sugar soft drinks. As a
concentrated source of calories,
however, even natural juice
poses a problem if consumed in
large quantities.
And, unfortunately, as con-
ventional juice lacks the filling
fiber found in whole fruit, it's
s easy to take in more calories
e than you need. For example,
one eight-ounce glass of orange
juice provides about 112 calo-
e ries; many people can easily
e swallow double that amount in
S one sitting.
Yet it would take about two
d medium oranges just to equal
the calories of the first glass of
juice. It's doubtful most of us
would even consider doubling
those calories by eating four
oranges at once. The bottom
- line: if you enjoy fruit juice,
have a glass daily, but remem-
ber to watch your portion size
(pay particular attention to bot-
tled juices sold at convenience
stores as they can contain from
double to four times the recom-
mended serving size in one bot-
tle).
Get most of your daily fruit
servings from solid fruit in
order to benefit from the fiber
and phytochemicals. Whole
fruit will also leave you full and
satisfied on fewer calories. And,
while tomato and vegetable
juices aren't as concentrated in
sugar calories, they too lack the
filling fiber of solid vegetables
and fruits.
As for those juice drinks and
cocktails that contain only a
small percent of actual fruit
juice those definitely belong
in the sugary drink category.
Save these for occasional use
only.
Q: I've heard that one way
to "go green" and reduce
energy consumption is to
leave leftovers on the counter

after a meal and put them in
the refrigerator once they've
come to room temperature. Is
that true?
A: "Going green" is a great
idea, but only in ways that don't
put your health at risk. Once
food is cooked, it should not be
kept at room temperature for
more than two hours, which
includes serving, eating and
cooling times.
Small amounts of bacteria
that can be found in (or on)
meat and other perishable foods
reproduce rapidly at room tem-
perature. It is much safer to
allow food to cool only briefly
before refrigerating it.
If you want to speed cooling
time, cut food into smaller por-
tions or divide it among several
shallow containers.
Q: I know that berries are
very nutritious, but they are
so expensive compared to
other fruit. What do you sug-
gest?
A: Berries are indeed loaded
with vitamins and natural plant
compounds that protect our
cells from cancer-causing
agents in a variety of ways.
One way to enjoy them more
often is to serve them in fruit
salads mixed with other less
expensive fruits to lessen the
cost per serving. Even small
portions add flavor and nutri-
tion when served as a topping
for cereal or yogurt, or as a col-
orful addition to green salads.
When fresh berries are no
longer in season, buy frozen
berries. They are somewhat
lower in vitamin C than fresh
ones, but the antioxidant power
of the berries' phytochemicals
appears unaffected. When con-
sidering the cost of different
forms of produce, look at where
you spend your grocery money
overall. Consider eating out just
a little less often or cutting back
on purchases of one or more
high-cost foods that don't sup-
ply health advantages such as
sugar-laden soft drinks, high-fat
meats and snack foods. These
simple steps can often free up a
surprising amount of money for
foods like berries and other
fruits and vegetables that pro-
tect our health and taste great.

LIGHT A CANDLE Smells can take us back to distant
memories. The aroma of hot melting icing over a cinnamon bun
recalls a cold Christmas morning. The smell of freshly washed
clothes reminds you of new spring flowers in your Mother's gar-
den.
Simply Primitive Candles & Such can take you back to those
good ol' times with the various hand-poured scented candles made
by owner Tammy Farrer.
Farrer's interest in candle making first began in 2001. She
opened up her own business in 2005 and began selling a year later.
Since then, Farrer has been working hard to maintain a high quali-
ty product and learn new techniques to better her merchandise.
Farrer and her family recently flew to Minneapolis, Minn., to
a three-day candle-maker's convention in hopes of learning new
techniques. After arriving home from the convention, Farrer felt
much more confident about her business and products.
"I am picky about what goes under my label. I use high-end
wax that burns cleanly all the way to the bottom. I know that my
products are high quality and customers get what they pay for,"
says Farrer.
After outgrowing her kitchen, Farrer decided to put a shop in
the back of her house to make her candles. Six months later, she is
running out of room again.
Farrer continues to try to set her products apart from the brand-
name candles. Many of the companies that people buy from do not
put in the total amount of fragrance the wax can hold because they
are concerned with the financial aspect of it. Farrer makes sure she
puts the maximum amount of fragrance the wax can hold.

brands, often lose their smell after they burn an hour or two. I
began candle-making with the desire to create a highly fragrant
candle of better quality than store-bought. Our candles are hand-
poured in our shop with the highest quality wax and fragrance
oils," says Farrer.
Farrer spends a large amount of time testing and measuring the

candles to ensure customers get the best product possible. Unlike.
many candle businesses, Farrer makes her candles in small batch-
es and mixes every one by hand the old-fashioned way to insure all
of the ingredients are blended evenly.
"Machines make the manufacturing process less laborsome,
but a machine can't tell when a candle is just right like a real per-
son can," says Farrer.
Since opening up her candle business, Farrer has worked hard
to teach herself the art of candle-making. Not only has she taught
herself how to make high-quality candles; but she also taught her-
self how to design her first Web site for Simply Primitive Candles
& Such. The Web site has been visited from companies arid cus-
tomers all over the United States as well as London and Brazil.
On the site you can find the various candles and products, such
as potpourri, electric candle warmers, votives, warmer melts,
refresher oil spray, mason-jar candles and carpet freshener.
Top sellers such as warm apple pie, cinnamon bun, vanilla
bean and country clothesline, are the perfect accessory to your
home or workplace. Other fragrances include red velvet cake,
pecan pie, banana nut bread, carrot cake and, for the upcoming fall
and Christmas line, buttery gingerbread and butter-cream crunch.
Although Farrer has made a personal achievement by master-
ing the candle-making techniques, she believes she could not be
where she is today if not for the love and support of her husband,
Phillip, and two daughters, Blake and Brea.
"Phillip has planted hedges around my shop, installed spigots
on my pour pot for convenience and taken care of all the mainte-
nance aspects of my business. My oldest daughter, Blake, helps
with the labels while Brea washes and wicks the jars. They have all
helped and supported me during this time of learning and growing
in my business," says Farrer.
Not only has Farrer received support and assistance from her
family, but she also gives thanks to God, who has given her the
opportunity to master what she loves. "Without God this business,
and this family, would be nothing. I owe it all to Him for helping
me turn my hobby into a business," says Farrer.
Farrer is working on a bath and body line that will include
body lotion, body wash, antibacterial soap and body mist. She is
also working on a line of body products and lip balm for children.

Greetings from Fort Green.
After reading last week's col-
umn, it seemed it was about
food! This, time it seems it is
about vacations and birthdays!;
Another 16-year-old birthday
boy and another Chevrolet Sil-.
verado. Happy birthday, Jake
Willis, and drive safely!
Edna Staton Albritton is hav-
ing an 80th birthday party at the
old swimming pool pavilion in
Zolfo Springs on Aug. 16 from
2 to 5 pm. Edna said she has
never had a birthday party, so
all her friends and family are
invited to come by and :remi-
nisce and wish her a happy
birthday! She requests no gifts,
please..
Faye Davis is definitely not
"over the hill!" She and Randall
went to Savannah to celebrate.
They had a super time, but who
wouldn't in Savannah! ,
Kaitlyn Laker turned 13 on
Aug. 3. She is now a teenager!
Happy birthday, Kaitlyn.


Ai'e iHogenauer celebrated
her birthday on Aug. 3, and
daughter Kaylee turned 9 on
Aug. 4.:Birthday wishes to both
of you. We had Sunday dinner
-",ther. The usual, dessert,
pound cake, strawberries and
homemade whipping cream!
Avis Sasser enjoyed the dinner
with us.
The Hogeiauer family vaca-
Stioned at, the beach recently.
Sherman and I went over so
Sherman could go fishing with
.Mark. The REA calendar said
that 7-23-08 was a good fishing
day. but theN did not get a single
bite! The next day Sherman got
Sa nice trout but just when they
""%.were beginning to bite, the
weather got bad AWd they had to
head for shore. Sherman and I
had that one trout for supper. It
sure was good and, sorry, not
enough to share!
-Tim and.,Theresa Rosenberg
and family were .also at the
beach! A\'ie said quite a few


people from Hardee County
were at the beach the same
week.
Donny and Donna Waters
recently closed King Fries for a
'week and went on vacation to
Pine Island. Now, Donny said
they really caught the fish and
had a supego, time but the sun
was too hot and they had to give
it up!
Mary Mitchell called to give
ime information on the origin of
Makayla's orange crush tee
cream recipe. The recipe came
from the 4-H Back-to-Basics
Summer Camp a few years ago.
Wilma Smith brought recipes
'and the 4-H members made
cookbooks and then made the
lice cream! It had to be good for
Makayla to want to make it
again, and she practiced the 4-H
motto, "Learn by Doing.",
Incidentally, Wilma Smith is
having health problems so
please put her on your prayer
list. She works in the 4-H sum-
mer program every summer.
Open house for 4-H will be
Aug. 21 from 3 to 7 at the Agri-
Civic Center. This is for anyone
who is interested in joining 4-H.
,They come and find out the dif-
ferent clubs and enroll. Mark
,your calendar!

Mary Lois Crawley called me
about Resthaven. It seems like
one of the nice things ,about
Hardee County is going to go
by the wayside unless the citi-
zens take some action. This is a
pretty place, where the senior
citizens can sit on the 'front
porch and rock away the hours.
They have a fee they are
charged monthly to live there.
Compare this to the jails or pris-
ons where we must take care of
'the criminals, feed them in air-
conditioned comfort and take
care of their medical or dental
needs. Just doesn't make sense,
does it!

Hardee Lakes is another pret-
ty part of the county and is
located in Fort Green. This
could be a moneymaker for the
county if they would complete
the RV park and stay open all
week. I have heard it rumored
the county wants to sqe.it. .
Chris and Christa Moye
Wolfe have a bouncing baby
boy born Aug. 1. Congratula-
tions! I think babies are a gift
straight from God.
Arthur Womack is in rehab
and still can't come home!
Please remember him and if
you have his phone number,
give him a call. The daysare
mighty long when you are con-
fined to a. hospital.
Polly Banda has not been
feeling good. Please continue to
pray for Ms. Polly.
Please call me with news.

MAKE IT RIGHT?
Q: It seems ever since I became a Christian, I go fr6m one
battle to the next. Sometimes one isn't even over before I find
myself engaged in another. I Li growing so tired and weary. It
seems like I'm being fought against. Why?
Signed, Weary
A: The truth is, because you are a Christian.
From the beginning of time, in the Garden of Eden, the devil
has been attacking God's people. He wants to destroy us and stop
the Kingdom of God from advancing. When you made a stand to
serve Christ, you became an enemy target. But, find comfort in
knowing that God is on your side and He is fighting for you.
I agree that we all get tired, weary and worn out, and at times
we want to throw in the towel, but giving up will not stop the bat-
tles. When you feel tired, and there is no more fight left in you, than
just stand with your shield of faith held high. If you keep the faith,
you will not'lose the battle, and always remember that this too shall
pass. The trials you see today will not last forever.
Last January, after I found out I was expecting my sixth child,
I felt God leading me to quit pastoring. He laid it on my heart to
study spiritual warfare so that I could help teach others to become
overcomers. Believe me, I did not argue.
It was a relief to be released for a.season from being, pastor
over a ministry. This was going to be easy. I will just go find all the
books I can on spiritual warfare and enjoy a time of rest.
Man, was I wrong.-
Only God knew what laid ahead for me. I had no idea that I
was about to walk through soie of the hardest days of my life.
God knew I would need to know more about spiritual warfare
because I was fixing to be face-to-face with the enemy.
Iam so glad I obeyed and gave up the church, because it has
taken all my faith and strength to get through these battles.
Why would God allow the enemy to fight me so hard this
year? Because God needed me battle smart rot just'book smart. All
because He has a plan for my life and He has a plan for yours, too.
Signed,Penny

Cherry Looks For National Title Letter To The Editor
Greaa White Was A


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
SOwning four regional titles is
just not enough.
Wauchula pro boxer Edner
Cherry wants to reach the top,
now.
To do so, Cherry is moving
up in weight to challenge new
World Boxing Council light
welterweight champion Tim-
othy "Desert Storm Bradley.
The bout will be Sept. 13 at
!the Beau Rivage Hotel and
Casino in Biloxi, Miss.,
It can be seen on Showtime
*as a co-main event with the
Nate Campbell-Juan Guzman
lightweight championship fight.
Campbell holds the title for all
three of the top sanctioning
bodies in professional boxing,
the World Boxing Association,
World Boxing Council and
* International Boxing Feder-
ation.
Cherry hopes to get a light-
weight title shot some time after
that bout. He is currently sixth
in the WBC lightweight rank-
ings.
While waiting for that call,
Cherry opted to keep busy by
going up to 140 pounds to try to
;take the belt Bradley won


recently over then-champion
Junior Witter. In his only bout
outside California, Bradley up-
set the 36-1-2 Witter in Notting-
ham, England, his home town.
From Palm Springs, Calif.,
Bradley has a record of 22-1-6
with 11 KOs. He is 5'6" with a
69-inch reach. The 24-year-old
has boxed only 125 rounds and
has only a 50 percent KO ratio.
Cherry will counter with his
24-5-2 record, including a
dozen KOs. The 26-year-old is
5'8" and has a 72-inch reach
which he uses to advantage
with his patented right hand,
aptly called the "Cherry
Bomb."
He used that right effectively
in his May 21 ESPN bout
against former champion Stevie
Johnston, whom Cherry decked
in the 10th round with a jab
which masked the devastating
right.
While Bradley had his first
12-rounder in his championship
fight, Cherry has gone that dis-
tance more than a half dozen
bouts. He hopes to use that
experience, his well-known sta-
mina and height advantage
against Bradley. An aggressive
come-at-you boxer, Bradley


will present challenges for
Cherry, who hopes to keep
enough separation and body
shots to slow Bradley.
Cherry leaves Aug. 8 for
Tampa where he will concen-
trate exclusively on his boxing
with trainer Peter Fernandez.
He holds the U.S. National
Boxing Council title, North
American Boxing Association,
Caribbean WBC lightweight,
and North American Boxing
Federation belts.
Can he bring home a world
championship belt?
Stop by Royal's Furniture
before Friday and cheer him on.

Testament To God's Love


Dear Editor
There have been times in our
lives we have experienced
meeting someone who made a
impact in our lives. It may have
been something they said, or
something they did that left the
impression. Whatever it was, it
touched your life in someway
that made a difference to your
life. Their kindness and warmth
of life beamed through actions
of love for others. These ind of
people are very special. You
don't meet very many of them
in your life, or so it seems.
There have been so many
people you have come in con-
tact with that were completely
opposite. People who seem to
just ooze with pure old mean-
ness. They leave impressions.
There have been times in my
own life, I wonder what kind of
lasting impression I may have
left behind on others. I know I
have acted out with anger, lost
my temper. I have spoken out
too quickly. Sometimes I have
had to eat my words. Well,
many times I have.
As I have grown with age, I
am beginning to learn life
lessons. And often, it has not
been easy. Personality, charac-
ter, actions all come into view.
The "mean" people in your life,
the ones who have left painful
memories, have had too much


power over you. They never
really left your memory. You
dragged them around with your
life, remembering what they
said or things they did to hurt
you in some way or another.
Impression or dent in your
memory.
If we make a choice, we will
choose to remember the ones
who have left us with a good
impression. Their impression
on our lives will help influence
us to make good choices of our
own.
I believe, these differences of
character, or personalities start
within the heart. The heart of
man. If the heart of the person is
given to the Lord Jesus, it will
overflow with actions of love
and kindness toward others.
They will have a life that
attracts others to them. The
attraction is Jesus Christ in their
lives. They will meet and greet
everyone with the same respect.
No matter what walk they may
have in life, rich or poor.
Beautiful or ugly. Educated or
uneducated. The difference is
their life belongs to Christ
I have been thinking a lot
about Gregg White and his
girls. I live in the same neigh-
borhood as they do. He was a
very good man. He was God's
child. He left behind many
impressions of his character in


this life. He touched many with
his kindness. I have thought of
the times he spoke to me, and
how he was sincere with his
kindness. What a testament to
God's love.
That made me wonder what
kind of impression on others
will I leave behind me? God
watches, God is listening to our
lives. We all need to be more
conscience in our actions in this
life. We all need to live for
Christ Jesus. This life is short
We only get one trial run here.
What we do, and how we treat
others will make a difference.
We may never know what kind
of influence we may make in
other people's lives. We with
Christ's love can make a differ-
ence in our world.
I feel so much sympathy for
Gregg White's family and their
loss. God will hold them with
his love and through his grace.
He was loved, and still is. I pray
that we all may be a living tes-
tament of Christ Jesus, even
after death. May we all touch
someone's life with the love of
Christ May our actions be last-
ing impressions of kindness and
love because of Christ's love
for us.
Sincerely in Christ,
Sheila Miller
Wauchula


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A new plan will add engi-
neering, planning and construc-
tion dollars for sidewalks near
the K-8 school in Wauchula
Hills.
During its meeting last week,
the Hardee County Commission
approved changes to the state
Department of Transportation
five-year plan which will pro-
vide five-foot sidewalks on
Rainey Boulevard, Alamo Ave-
nue and Keeton Road, those
closest to the new school. Kee-
ton will be completed from


U.S. 17 as far as Stansfield
Road, while Rainey Boulevard
work will be done as far as
Williams Avenue. Sidewalks
will be of a four-to-six feet
depth.
Some of the engineering
work is included in the state fis-
cal year 08-09, which began
July 1. Other work to clear,
grub and bank the areas will be
in ensuing years, with construc-
tion hopefully in fiscal year 10-
11.. DOT will change the feder-
al dollars from landscaping to
sidewalks to provide for these
projects.


To listen closely and reply well is the highest perfection
we are able to attain in the art of conversation.


It was also mentioned that the
DOT sidewalks being complet-
ed along the west side of U.S.
17 are being done with state and
federal dollars and the county
has no say and where they are
placed. "How they twist and
turn is their plan, not ours," said
commissioners.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
--Approved .a resolution
adopting the 70-page debris
management plan which will
become a part of the county's
Comprehensive Land Use Plan.
Although it names both solid
waste contractors which origi-
nally bid to provide collection
services for the county, it can
use only one, Hardee Disposal,
the current contractor.
The plan is part of a Federal
Emergency Management
Agency contract for debris
removal following a disaster
such as Hurricane Charley.
Approved a license agree-
ment/easement with Southwest
Florida Water Management
District to construct and operate
a monitoring well at. Hardee
Lakes Park. "Keeping track of
water levels can only be a bene-
fit to the county," said Com-
missioner Minor Bryant
Renewed a contract with
the state Department of Cor-
rections for inmate labor crews
providing work around the
county.
Approved a letter of com-
mitment to provide matching
funds of $17,883 to Florida's
Heartland rural Economic De-
velopment Initiative (FHRE-
DI), including dues, Florida's
Freshwater Frontier and grant-
fund matching for 2008-09.

THE

M.cd A Guoda. D D

A man gave me a watch that
had an attractive face and a
beautiful case, but it stopped
running.
The jeweler examined it,
and shaking his head, said,
"It's cheap."
"But it's a beauty," I
protested.
"Yes,'" he admitted, "but in
watches and men, it's the
inside that counts."
Y6'ur words may be'-win-
some; your countenance, cap-
tivating; and your dress,
delightful. But what's inside.
Sooner or later, what's on
the inside will show on the
outside.
Speech, stance and a smile
don't reveal a Christian. But a
heart of faith, love and purity
does.
"Man looks on the outward
appearance," says the Bible,
"but the Lord looks on the
heart."

Families Attend 'Growing Kindergarteners' At HES


Hilltop Elementary School
hosted "Growing Kindergarten-
ers" one Saturday in late May at
the Wauchula Hills Baptist
Church Mission, also known as
La Iglesia de Bautista de la
.Comunidad, bringing together
many community organizations
to help inform and educate par-
ents about their services.
The Hardee County Sheriffs
Office gave out information
affout bicycle safety and distrib-
uted helmets. The Early Learn-
ing Coalition talked with par-
ents about the summer dates for
the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten
program. The Health Depart-
ment gave out much-needed car
seats to parents who drove to
the event, then showed how to
correctly install them.
Kathy Roe, a health liaison
for the school system, advised
parents on school enrollment
and vaccination records. Ter-
esa Hall from Child Find talked
with parents about the services


for children with special needs.
Carolyn Wyatt from the Home
Extension Office showed par-
ents the importance of washing
hands regularly to keep harmful
germs from entering your body.
Hardee Fire-Rescue was a big
hit, with the kids looking at all
the equipment and listening to
the siren. The library handed
out a free book for each child.
Filomena Atchley and Amy
Franks talked with parents in
Spanish and English about the
fundamentals needed for a child
to be a successful kindergarten-
er.
Kindergarten is no longer a
place where children play the
majority of the day; it is a time
when important learning takes
place. Parents were advised to
enroll their children in a pre-
school program before they
start kindergarten and were
given a list of things their chil-
dren should be doing on their
own before entering school.


The main purpose of this
event was to encourage parents
to come to school, participate
with teachers in their child's
education and to learn about
what the community can pro-
vide for them and their families.
No successful event would be
complete without Itzy, the
clown, handing out balloons,
cookies made by the lunchroom
ladies at Hilltop Elementary,
and a parent/child craft activity.
Of course, the best part was sit-
ting under a tree on a blanket
listening to School Board mem-
ber Gina Neuhofer, Miss Har-
dee County Natalie Green and
Junior Miss Meghan Graham
reading wonderful stories to all
the children who attended.
Principal Tracey Nix and
Assistant Principal Willie Gilli-
ard along with numerous facul-
ty members, many of them
bilingual, and Key Clubbers
were there to greet and wel-
come everyone who attended.

was among those who read stories to the little ones.

The Hardee County Sheriffs Office and Explorers were among the many entities with
exhibits for the parents and children.


School isn't scary when Assistant Principal Willie Gilliard
is there with words of encouragement.


It won't be long until school, and the fall sports schedule are
under way.
Football fever is starting. Coach Jerry Kapusta is again selling
season tickets, for $40 for all home Varsity and JV games.
Reserved seat options are $10. For the All-Sports ticket good for
any Hardee home sports event, the cost is $80.
If he hasn't reached you yet, call him at 773-3173 or stop by his
office in the Adult & Community Education Building on West
Main Street.
Football starts with the Fall Classic at home on Aug. 29 vs.
Auburndale. Check the Back To School insert in this week's issue
for the full schedule.
Boys golf, girls volleyball, girls golf,, swimming and cross
country will all be starting shortly as well.


Hardee youth swimmers continue to do well, placing second in
a tri-meet at Lake Placid in mid-July.
Hardee had winning performances from Rachel Roberts, Adam
Petrie, William Godwin, Allison McCaully and Casey Brutus,
home after his first year of college swimming.
Hardee girls swept the 11-12 50-yard butterfly with Roberts,
Maggie Brumfield and Emily Rhodes. The girls also won the 200
free-style relay for bbth giris'arid boys divisions ages 11-12.
Adult softball leagues are finishing up, especially, the women
who are about to enter post-season tournament. The men have a
few more weeks, as they conclude with interdivisional games.
Local pro boxer Edner "Cherry Bomb" Cherry is leaving to-
morrow (Friday) to settle in at Tampa and train intensively for his
Sept. 13 light welterweight championship bout to be seen on
Showtime. He hopes to unseat new champion Timothy "Desert
Storm" Bradley. It ought to be quite a battle.

welcome. Please email me at news.heraldadvocate@embarq-
mail.com or call me at 773-3255 with news for this biweekly col-
umn. The sports deadline is Thursday at 5 p.m., except for events

August 7,2008, The Herald-Advocate 5C


Nestled in the foothills
deep within the piney woods
in the shadow of the mountains
the old man's cabin stood.

His kitchen smelled of coffee,
and of newsprint on the shelves,
though he was nearing ninety,
he lived there by himself.

They say he'd had a family,
but now he lived alone
on a hill behind the cabin
were seven markers, made of stone.

In the parlor was a fiddle
older than the man himself
years ago he'd lost his hearing,
so it laid there on the shelf.

But I'd never seen it dusty
and couldn't help but wonder why,
for no one had seen him play it
since the day his wife died.

Then one day I came to visit
but he was nowhere 'round about.
Through the house, then to the kitchen
then quiet by chance I did peer out.

Through window panes and dusty curtains,
to a spot there on the hill,
and though many years have passed now,
how clear the scene is to me still.

Beneath a tall pine, by a marker
just as the sun was sinking low
"Old Will," gently held his fiddle
and he touched it with his bow.

As he played the sweetest music
in his eye a tear was glistening.
Though he couldn't hear the music,
h he w th angelss were listening.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER
MichaelA Guido. gD
Melter. Georgia j
The word "hurrah" was first
used as a battle cry.
Some people believed that
if a man died fighting for his
country, he went to Paradise.
So they shouted, "Hurrah!" It
meant, in the Solvak tongue,
"To 'Paradise."
But it's not fighting for a
purpose that saves. It's faith in
a Person Jesus.
Christ was crucified with
two criminals. One said, "So,
You're the Messiah, are You?
Prove it by saving Yourself -
and us."
But the other prayed,
"Jesus, remember me when
You come into your king-
dom."
"Today," replied Jesus,
"you will be with Me in
Paradise."
Have faith in Jesus, won't
you?


Nutrition
Notes

Q: Should I eat a "whole
foods diet"?
A: Nutrition recommenda-
tions from the American Insti-
tute for Cancer Research and
many other health authorities.
emphasize choosing whole, un-
processed vegetables, fruits and
grains instead of processed pro-
ducts that have reduced fiber
and nutrients or increased
amounts of fat, sugar and sodi-
um. Whole foods, which are
higher in nutrients, phytochem-
icals and fiber, lower your risk
of cancer, heart disease and
other age-related health prob-
lems. Although processed foods
don't have to be avoided com-
pletely, they should play a min-
imal role in your meals and
snacks.
Some definitions of a "whole
foods diet" say that the vegeta-
bles and fruits you eat should be
fresh (not frozen or canned),
locally grown and in season.
But foiloNing this,`ind of diet
would drastically narrow your
range of vegetable and fruit
choices. If you live in the north-
ern half of the U.S., you would
deprive yourself of many
sources of valuable nutrients
and phytochemicals for many
months of the year. This kind of
diet has no scientific support.
Another definition of "whole
foods" without any research
backing says you should eat
full-fat foods like whole milk
and regular cuts of meat.
Choosing foods with less satu-
rated fat, however, like skim
milk and lean cuts of meat, is a
basic part of healthful eating.

Softball Women Finish Up


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It's down to a final night of
scheduled games and some pos-
sible rainout make-up games.
The 2008 Women's Church
Softball League is winding
down. Barring any surprises in
the dozen or so make-up games,
it appears Wauchula First
Methodist Church is the season
champion.
Without scores from the
games of July 28 and July 29,
First Methodist still has a com-
manding 9-0 record. The only
results from last week were
those on Thursday, changing
the standings very little. New
Hope Baptist beat Celebration,
and Alpha & Omega/Freedom
Ministries downed United
Methodist of Zolfo Springs.
That puts Alpha & Omega in
second place with a 7-2 record.
Holy Child Catholic was idle on
Thursday, staying at 6-2. Be-
hind them are United Methodist
of Zolfo Springs, New Hope
Baptist, Celebration Hardee
Campus and First Christian
Church.
In the only games for which
scores were available, New


Hope beat Celebration 14-4 in
the Thursday opener.
Lori Barbaree circled the
bases three times, and Crystal
Harrison and Angie each put a
pair of scores on the board, for
New Hope. Adding a run apiece
were Amber, Regan Davenport,
Tasha, D.K. Davis, Lori, Krissi
and Michelle.
Vikki Maldonado, Jamie,
Jodi and Gloria Solis each came
around to cross home plate for
Celebration. Wanda was strand-
ed all three times she got on
base, and a half dozen others
were also left on base.
In the Thursday closer, Alpha
& Omega outscored United
Methodist 13-9.
Leadoff batter Sami Jo
Morgan touched home plate
three times for Alpha & Omega.
Wanda Stettler, Lori Dees and
Frankie each scored twice and
Amy Franks, Jodi Griffin, Jodi
0. and MiMi added solo scores.
For United Methodist, it was
Priscilla and Rose with twin
trips around the bases. Donna
Smith, Angel Ussery, Erin,
Sarah and Stacy each touched
home plate once.
