By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The town Police Department
in Zolfo Springs has gone from
one to none.
Police Chief Chris Baty was
fired by Town Manager Linda
Roberson late Friday morning.
Roberson cited insubordination
and failure to follow directives
as reasons for his termination.

10 Years
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A robber who wielded a
sawed-off shotgun as he held up
a city convenience store will
now be spending a decade
"behind .bars.
Melitoin Aeman,;-21; of 605
Sally Pi., Wauchula, has been
sentenced in Hardee Circuit
Court to 10 years in state prison
for the felony crimes of robbery
with a firearm while wearing a'
mask and grand theft while
wearing a mask.
In imposing the penalty,
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle
also ordered Aleman to pay
$520 in fines and court costs
and $340 in public defender
fees.
Aleman was transported from
the Hardee County Jail to the
State Department of Corrections
prison system last week.
According to Capt. Thomas
Harris of the Wauchula Police
Department, Aleman was
arrested on April 5, just minutes
after he robbed the Stop n' Shop

force for many months.
Baty has asked for and will
have an appeal of his dismissal
before the full Town Commis-
sion this Friday night beginning
at 7 in the Civic Center.
"I don't feel like it's right, by
no means," Baty said Wednes-

town my blood, sweat and tears.

way."
Roberson said Wednesday
morning that Baty's firing came
after an incident during a meet-
ing she was having with him in
her office on Friday. Mayor
George Neel was there as well,
she said.
"I made the decision to fire
the police chief, and we will be
able to get into both sides of it
at the hearing on Friday night,"
she said.
Roberson provided a copy of


:ires Police Chief


the dismissal notice she pre-
pared for Baty.
It reads: "You are hereby
given notice effective immedi-
ately. Turn in all keys and
equipment immediately to the
town clerk.
"Insubordination and poor
working relations with mem-
bers of town management is a
reason for dismissal according
to Section 9.07C(4) of the Zolfo
Springs Personnel Policy," it
continues. "Failure to comply


with directives from your
supervisor is a Group 111(7)
offense, according to Section
10.03 of the Zolfo Springs
Personnel Policy, which is pun-
ishable by first offense up to
discharge."
The dismissal notice goes on
to explain Baty's rights to an
appeal before the Town Com-
mission.
Roberson signed the termina-
tion form at 11:46 a.m. on

Hardee football in the late '70s. Lt. Col. Robert E. Collins Jr. (left), Class of 1980, is in Special Operations Central

Fishin' For Donors' Is Monday


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
Long-time Hardee resident Mary Nicholson is known for her
loving heart, vibrant personality and passion for the art of fishing.
However, Nicholson and her loved ones are now fishing for
something much more than the creatures beneath the water's sur-
face.
At the end of last year, Nicholson learned she needs to have a
bone marrow transplant and inust find a matching donor soon.
When Nicholson found out about her disease she was in com-
plete disbelief and shock. After all, she was a devout Christian, a
mother, a wife, a long-time worker for the county and a volunteer
for Story of Jesus active in every way.
"I had been completely healthy and had just had a checkup at the


end of July. By November I was diagnosed," she says. "At first I
worried about it all the time, then I realized that it is all in God's
hands. I'm going to let Him handle it, and I have no doubt in my
mind that everything will be fine."
Nicholson's family and friends also have complete faith that
Nicholson will get better.
Her love for fishing has inspired some of her friends and family
to start fishing themselves, fishing for a donor.
"Fishin' for Donors for Mary," will be hosted on Monday at the
Agri-Civic Center to search for a match for Nicholson. The process
in-cludes a mouth swab and a donation of blood. Folks are encour

Budget Hearings To Begin For BG


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Everyone's talking about
taxes, but...
The chances for people to do
something about taxes start on
Monday, with regional,
school, county and municipal
public budget hearings.
Residents will have the
opportunity to have their say
about property taxes in each
entity. For those unable to
attend, public taxing authorities
are only a phone call away.
There are two most frequent-
ly asked questions about the
TRIM (Truth in Millage)
notices sent to residents recent-
ly.
One concerns the non-ad val-
orem assessments which are
included on the tax bill and
need to be paid the same of
taxes. Failure to pay them could
result in a lien against one's
property.


Assessments may be different
this year. The fire assessment,
which everyone pays, remains
at $136. However, the garbage
collection (called solid waste)
has risen to $173.20. That
amount will appear on tax bills
in the unincorporated areas of
the county. Municipal authori-
ties include the solid waste or
garbage cost on the monthly
utility bills.
The second question fre-
quently asked is about market
.value vs. taxes. Although prop-
erty values are dropping, the
assessed value is based on mar-
ket value as of Jan. 1, sales
occurring before that date.
Amendment 1 increased the
homestead exemption from
$25,000 to $50,000, but people
may still see higher property
taxes this year. That's because
the overall tax rates have'
increased taxes.

Election
By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
There will be no city election
in Bowling Green this year,
announced City Clerk Pam
Northup.
The City Commission had
three seats up for election, and
there were three candidates who
qualified last week. Commis-
sioners Randy Mink and Perry
Knight qualified for re-election.
Former city commissioner
Woody Caligan qualified for
the seat currently held by David
Durastanti, who is resigning to
run for superintendent of
schools.
With three candidates and
three seats, there is no need for
an election; said Northup. The
election had been scheduled for
Sept. 30.

Count
Mismarked Ballots
Prompt Hand Count
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Voters confused by a resolu-
tion appearing at the end of
their ballots prompted a hand
count by elections officials last
week.
The results of that recount,
however, did not change the
outcome.
Under scrutiny was the ballot
question asking for an exten-
sion of the County Commis-
sion's authority to grant proper-
ty-tax exemptions to new or
expanding businesses.
The unofficial results on
Primary Election night showed
1,342 voters for the resolution
and 1,033 against it. After the
Canvassing Board's recount
Thursday evening, the vote was
1,611 "yes" to 1,248 "no,"
Elections Supervisor Jeff
Ussery said.
The resolution passed.
Ussery explained that the
hand count became necessary
after he noticed a problem with
the resolution during the Early,
Voting process. Voters, he said,
sometimes came up to elections
workers and asked where they
were supposed to mark their
ballots.
"I noted some people were,

Kelly's Column
By Jim


An anonymous handicapped person wrote a letter recently
complaining about someone parking in a handicapped space at the
courthouse. Letters to the editor need to be signed in order to be
printed.
I spoke to one person who uses a handicapped parking space
who said he.does have a handicap and a proper decal but he would
defer to someone in a wheelchair.

Several months ago I ate lunch at a Wauchula restaurant which
had "broiled grouper" on its menu. It definitely was not grouper,
and the waitress checked with the manager and confirmed the fish
was not grouper. It is illegal under Florida consumer laws to mis-
lead the public like this.
Restaurant patrons have the right to get what they order. I hope
management will correct this mistake, if it is still happening. The
manager would not tell the waitress what kind of fish it was.

Congratulations to President George Bush and'other officials
for a much better preparation for Hurricane Gutsta\, in 2008 com-
pared to Hurricane Katrina which struck the Louisiana Gulf Coast
in 2005. It is gratifying to see improvements'.
Bush no doubt is trying hard to end his presidency on a high
note.
We Americans were grateful Hurricane Gustav was a much
milder hurricane than Katrina.

Illinois U.S. Sen. Barack Obama is an amazing success story.
The son of a black African father and a white mother from Kansas
is a slight favorite at this time to be our next president. He is a gift-
ed speaker and communicator. His campaign offers a lot of hope
and change.
Obama and his running mate U.S. Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware
are representing the Democratic Party.

Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain will represent the Republican
Party on Nov. 4 in his bid for president. He is 72, 25 years older
than Obama, and spent about five years in war prison in the
Vietnam Conflict, which resulted in 58,000 American deaths and
hundreds of thousands of other deaths and injuries.
McCain has accepted full responsibility for the failure of his
first marriage over a quarter century ago.
McCain made a surprise pick for his runningmate in Alaska
Gov. Sarah Palin, who has been governor for two years and was
mayor several years of a small Alaskan city. This may be a brilliant
move to try to attract women voters but in my opinion a far better
choice would have been Mitt Romney of Massachusetts.
For women to break through the so-called glass ceiling over
the White House they could vote for the McCain-Palin ticket... or
wait until 2012 and try to elect New York U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton
as president, provided Obama does not win in 2008 or is elected in
2008 but does not do a good job. Politics is interesting.

Hardee Supervisor of Elections Jeff Ussery on Tuesday report-
ed Hardee County has 11,744 registered voters and 3,340 voted in
last week's primary election or 28.4 percent.
Ussery predicts a higher voter turnout in the Nov. 4 general
election.
The Lakeland Ledger reported last week the primary election
voter turnout last week in Polk County was 16.1 percent; Pinellas
County, 12 percent; Hillsborough, 7 percent; and Hernando
County, 15 percent.
All these numbers seem somewhat disappointing, when you
consider all the wars, deaths and sacrifices that have been made for
over 200 years to try to preserve democracy in America. Voter apa-
thy means political candidates are elected by a small percentage of
voters a small minority of the total registered voters.

Sheriff's candidate Roger Clark won 60 percent of the
Republican vote compared with 40 percent for Thomas Santarlas,
who does not live in the county but has property in Wauchula.
Clark had 493 votes and Santarlas 323. Clark will face Arnold
Lanier, a Democrat, on Nov. 4, as Sheriff Loran Cogburn is retir-
Sing after three four-year terms.

The Hardee Wildcats looked good Friday night in a 30-12
kickoff classic win over Auburndale. The Cats will open their reg-
ular season this Friday night at 7:30 at North Fort Myers.
Last week Hardee showed a strong run defense and a much
improved passing attack.

Randall Moye of New Zion said he will definitely vote for
John McCain as president.
A Mormon man named Roger in Utah on Tuesday said as a
.follower of Jesus Christ he has no choice but to vote for McCain
;because of.two reasons McCain is pro-life, believing that life
begins at conception and, secondly, he believes that marriage
-should be between a man and a women. The Democrats, he noted,
,| re for abortion rights; including late term and partial birth abor-
Itions, and support the gay lifestyle.
Roger believes George W. Bush in 15 to 30 years will be
*!judged by the secular world as an excellent American president.

convenience store at the corer
of U.S. 17 and Bay Street in the
city limits: .
Harris, said Alreman had.
walked into the store altabout
4:30 in the morning that
Saturday, as the clerk inside
was preparing food in the
store's cooking area. The
woman saw him come in, and
that he was carrying a gun, the
captain said.
"Give me the money! I want
the money!" Aleman shouted at
the clerk.
Harris said the thief followed
the clerk behind the counter at
the front of the store, where he
grabbed a black metal cash box
then fled.
Ofc. Amy Drake received the
radio dispatch at 4:33 a.m.,
Harris said, and heading to the
scene heard dogs barking along
Seventh Avenue. Alerted, she
turned off Bay Street and onto
Seventh Avenue, he noted.
There, Drake spotted a man
standing at the back of a car


parked at a house on Seventh
Avenue. The car's engine was
running, and the man was rum-
maging through the trunk,
Harris described.
Drake asked the man what he
was doing and why he was out
of breath. Harris also said the
officer could see the man fit the
description of the robber, and
that he was sweaty, excited and
nervous.
As other officers arrived,
gloves and a black hood were
found on the front seat of the
car and a gun in the trunk.
Further, the owners of the resi-
dence said they did not know
Aleman.
Aleman was taken to the
police station and questioned,
,Harris said. After admitting the
! crime, he was arrested.
Harris said the shotgun and
the money were recovered.
Aleman told a jailer as he
was being booked that he never
intended to harm anyone, and
that the shotgun was unloaded.

Friday. Baty refused to sign the
document.
"There's no real basis to it, it's
a personal thing," Baty said on
Wednesday. "She feels I was
insubordinate. I wasn't."
Baty said that, at the time, the
two were discussing the instal-
lation of equipment on the new
patrol vehicle just purchased by
the town to replace the three
Dodge Chargers that were sold.
He denied being insubordinate
or uncooperative.
"To lose a job because she
feels we can't work together
isn't righlt,"he said.
SBaty said he has consulted
with a lawyer in the few days
since his dismissal. He said he
is looking forward to his oppor-


tunity to speak to the Town
Commission. "She's dismissed
me, but it's not final until the
council says they agree with
her," he said.
Baty added, "I'm asking for
the support of the citizens of
Zolfo Springs. If you support
me, please be at the meeting
Friday night."
Roberson said she, too, wel-
comes a full airing of the issue.
She noted she has spoken
with labor attorney Shane
Munoz of Greenburg Traurig in
Tampa.
Baty was hired as a part-time
police officer for the town in
February of 2006. He was made
chief in June of that same year.

having issues with it," Ussery
said. "I expressed my concerns
with (County Manager) Lex
Albritton." Ussery explained
that the wording of the resolu-
tion was prepared by the coun-
ty.
Following Tuesday night's
Primary Election, Ussery
checked for and found what are
called "undervotes" in the
results, meaning a ballot issue
which lacks a similar number of
responses as other ballot issues.
In all, 653 people failed to
vote on the resolution, he said.
So, Ussery called in Can-
vassing Board members County
Judge Jeff McKibben and
County Commission Chairman
Dale Johnson for Thursday
evening's hand count, which
took roughly four hours.
Ussery explained that all bal-
lots which failed to register a
vote for the resolution during
the computer count were pulled
out for a hand inspection.
That inspection showed only
169 cards were actually blank,
the others were mismarked.
"Some circled the 'Yes' or
'No' in the instructions," Ussery
described. "Some made their
own oval, and then darkened it
like a normal oval. Some cir-
cled the whole thing."
With the hand count, 269
"Yes" votes were found and 215
"No" votes, he said.
Ussery was perplexed by the
problem, noting most ballots
contain amendment questions,
both in English and Spanish,
but never before have voters
been unable to find the oval to
register their votes.
"In the future, we might need
to put some wordage in front of
it, so people aren't seeing that
'yes' or 'no' in the instructions,
and going for that as the. place
where they are supposed to,
mark their choice," Ussery, said.


The term restaurant was first
used bya Mr. Boulanger, who
opened the first establishment
of its kind in Paris in 1765.



In a time of drastic change it
'is the learners who inherit their
future. The learned usually'
find themselves equipped to
live in a world that no longer,
exists.

The following is dedicated to the memory of our dear departed friend,
and colleague, Coach Gregg Matthew White.
May He rest in peace.

Our Hero
As we ponder the love that we saw expressed in hiseyes,
A Godly love, given without conditions or compromise ...
We recall the many times of how he stood by our side,
And prodded us on to excel with great vigor and pride.

His voice was ever confident, firm and yet always fair,
Always speaking with patience, tenderness and great care.
The power and might of his strong, calloused hands were so sure,
As he taught us that there was nothing in life we couldn't endure.

It's true, a few other coaches provided some valuable worth and insight,
Yet, he laid the strong foundation that kept us standing proud and upright.
As we stood tall and quoted our priorities at the end of each practice session

"God, Family, School" this, he reminded us, was our most important lesson.

He was a man of great dignity, true honor and immense strength.
His reputation was noble, and his merits of admirable length.
He was far greater than all other men that we will ever come to know,
For he was our Coach, our mentor, our friend and, most of all, our hero.

ible, odorless, tasteless gas, and
is highly poisonous, the Hardee
County Health Department
warns.
Depending on the level of
exposure, it may cause fatigue,
weakness, chest pains for those
with heart disease, shortness of
breath upon exertion, nausea,
vomiting, headaches, confu-
sion, lack of coordination,
impaired vision, loss of con-
sciousness and, in severe cases,
death.
Carbon monoxide can be pro-
duced by portable generators,
small gasoline engines, char-
coal grills, gas stoves, automo-
bile exhaust from attached
garages, and smoking tobacco.
Do not burn charcoal or gas
grills inside a house, garage,
vehicle, tent or fireplace.
Never use a generator indoors,

residents. In order to be eligible to reside in one of the four homes,
the patient must have received a disability before the age of 18.


DOES IT HURT? Art is everywhere: in fashion, on can-
vases, in magazines, even on bodies. Body art, better known as tat-
toos, has become one of the longest trends in history.
Tattoo artist John Tomassi is now bringing this trend to Hardee
County.
Tomassi's love for tattooing began 11 years ago when he
moved to Hawaii. There he met a fellow tattoo artist and decided
to open up a tattoo shop. After the two men went their separate
ways, Tomassi opened his very own tattoo shop in Titusville, and
has now opened one in Wauchula.
Draco Tattoo is located at 210 N. Third Ave., across the street
from the Wauchula Skate Park.
Tomassi does custom work, cover-ups and fine line, and uses
sterile single-use needles for every tattoo. Draco Tattoo does not do
piercings at this time.
Although Tomassi puts a lot of thought and detail into all of his
tattoos, his true love is doing large detailed tattoos. "I have fun
doing all of the tattoos. I like to do large tattoos because I get a lot
of detail in," says Tomassi.

No Place Like Home.

The patients pay a fee to live there in return. So far, every hoi
full to capacity, with the youngest being 12 and the oldest pa

Administrative assistant Errick Snelling is one of the
staff at No Place Like Home that enjoys being a part of dra
change within the community. "I love being able to be an int
part of my community," says Snelling.
No Place Like Home strives to give patients the best and
normal lives as possible. The patients can stay at the home as
or as long as they want. If they don't want to stay, they ar
forced to live there.
The staff of No Place Like Home cares greatly about the
being of each patient that walks in their doors. Staff is consi
checking on the patients at the homes to make sure they are
early provided for.

Not only does Tomassi have amazing skills and an eye for
detail, he also prides himself in being reasonably priced. "People
waste gas traveling to Lake Wales and Sebring to go get an expen-
sive tattoo. I am very competitive and reasonable, and can guaran-
tee that I have the lowest prices with the highest quality," says
Tomassi.
Draco Tattoo is open Tuesday through Thursday from noon to
6 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from noon to 8 p.m. Tomassi says
that he will come in on one of his days off if it is a large tattoo.

Letter To The Editor

Caroline Coronado's Family

Is Thankful For Support


matic Dear Editor:
ricate On March 28 of this year our
sweet Caroline was diagnosed
most with Stage 2 Large B-cell lym-
;little phoma, and to our devastation
re not our daughter was given a 50
percent chance of beating her
cancer. You can only imagine
well- what was going through our
tantly minds as we tried to absorb this
prop- horrible news that our daughter
may not live to see her eighth
birthday.
We were told by her oncolo-
gy group that she would have to
endure 10 months of long and
painful chemotherapy if she
was to have a chance at life. I
cannot imagine a mother's
worst nightmare than to see her
child endure such intense treat-
ments and the toll it would take
on her precious and innocent
body, but we made the decision
to take a chance and move for-
ward with her treatments.
SIt has now been five months,
and Caroline has showed much
improvement. Her oncologists
are so amazed at her response
nate and have given her a great
bled chance of living.
Unfortunately her treatments
have taken a hard toll on her
They tiny body with long periods of
says fatigue, transfusions, and sad-
ness, but our baby always
St. in seemed to surprise everyone
with bouncing back to health.
In this difficult and trying
time in our lives we have been
blessed with new friends.
Friends that took the time and
irting effort to make this difficult time
in our child's life a little more
tom comfortable to endure. So
SrA < *; *.;iI ..* f r '* "./'


because of you our daughter
always kept a smile on her face.
Thank you all for your con-
tributions, your words of
encouragement, and most of all
for lending your shoulder to cry
on. Thank you to all who partic-
ipated in all the car washes,
yard sales, and barbecue bene-
fits held on Caroline's behalf.
We would also like to thank,
Gloria's Restaurant and the
Apostolic Light House of
Bowling Green for your great
kindness.
Most of all a thank you to all
of the people of Hardee County
and the surrounding counties
for your great contributions that
were used for hospital expens-
es. May God have a special
place for you and your family in
Heaven.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered rainfall was received across the State last week.
Hillsborough, St. Johns, Broward, and Dade counties recorded the
most precipitation, between 2-3 inches. Major cities averaged
highs in the upper 80s and 90s with lows in the 70s and 80s.
Daytime highs were in the 90s; lows were in the upper 60s and-70s.
FIELD CROPS
Peanut condition was rated 4 percent poor, 21 percent fair, 56
percent good, and 19 percent excellent. Some fields still had excess
moisture from Tropical Storm Fay. Santa Rosa County did not
experience severe weather conditions and the peanut crop was
nearing maturity. Jefferson County lost some of the pecan crop due
to Tropical Storm Fay and many fields were still flooded. Areas of
Jackson County that received heavy rainfall experienced more dis-
ease pressure. As fields dried, farmers applied fungicide to improve
crop conditions.
VEGETABLES
Postponed field work continued in some areas due to standing
water. Volusia County had difficulty getting water pumped off the
fields, delaying vegetable land preparation and planting. Okra and
avocados continued to be marketed last week due to a high
demand.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
Pastures throughout the State varied from poor to excellent
condition. Pasture flooding was reported in each area due to
Tropical Storm Fay, with more flooded pastures noted in the north-
ern and eastern counties. In the Panhandle areas, pasture condition
was poor to excellent with most in good condition. In the northern
areas, pasture was in poor too excellent condition with several loca-
tions with-flooded pasture. In the central and southwest areas, pas-
ture condition was mostly good. Most pastures in St. Lucie County
were very wet or flooded from the tropical storm. Statewide, cattle
condition was fair to excellent with most in each area in good con-
dition.

tion hosted a back-to-school kickoff at

SPORTS SHOPPING


PHOTO Bf NCMvO DAVOIS
Athletes throughout the county ean~now save gas by shopping in Hardee County for
their sporting goods. Hibbett Sports will soon be moving to Wauchula, offering football,
baseball, basketball, soccer and fitness equipment, accessories and apparel. Hibbett
has a wide selection of shoes, boots and cleats for every type of athlete, including
Nike, Shox, Adidas, Reebok, Timberland, DC, Crocs and Etnies. Although the opening
date is uncertain, the new store will be located at the Wauchula Plaza.


Out of 67 such departments
in the state of Florida, the
Hardee County Health Depart-
ment has been recognized by
the Florida Department of
Health/Women's Health Divi-
sion as the County Health De-
partment of the Month for its
innovative maternal health pro-
grams.
The Hardee County Health
Department offers the follow-
ing services to women of child-
bearing age: obstetrical care
(both traditional and centering),
family planning, breastfeeding
support, parenting and child-
birth education classes, inter-
conceptional and infertility
counseling, and teen pregnancy
prevention. .,. ,
With bilingual staff members,
services are available in both
English and Spanish.
From Oct. 1, 2007, to June 30
of this year, the Hardee County
Health Department provided
96,058 services to residents,
with over 5,000 of those regard-
ing maternal health.
"Our centering programs for
prenatal care and well-baby
checks are unique to both the
county and the state. We are
providing a service to our com-
munity that is not available
elsewhere," stated Dr. Stephen
Gordon, medical director of the


Hardee County Health Depart-
ment.
"Our providers, nurses and
Healthy Start staff are to be
commended for their hard work
and dedication to women's
health," he added.
Centering, or group prenatal
care, allows pregnant women
due to deliver within the same
month to receive their health-
care in a group setting while
also providing time for educa-
tion and for bonding with other
women. This is crucial for first-
time moms who may be shy
about asking questions of their
health providers or who may
feel time constraints on their
clinic visits limit the number of
questions they can ask.
The women who participate
in centering spend little or no


time in the waiting room.
Instead, the entire visit at the
Health Department is spent
actively learning about their
own pregnancy and about how
to stay healthy during their
pregnancy to achieve the best
outcome for their babies.
Recently the centering con-
cept was extended to include
newborns, called well baby
checks. So, after delivery,
moms can remain in their
groups while their babies re-
ceive pediatric services such as
well-baby screenings and im-
munizations and they receive
education about normal growth
and development, nutrition and
parenting skills.
This unique concept provides
an avenue for community and
friendships among women who
might not otherwise get to
know each other.

of theseprogramsiqr to make an
appointment, call 773-4161.

COWART FAMILY
Dan James Cowart Jr. was a familiar character around Hardee
County until his death last year.
Cowart took pleasure in telling the many stories that were part
of his very colorful life, including his Hardee High School years,
his service as a county commissioner, his involvement with 4-H
and Future Farmers of America, and his occupation as rancher and
cowboy.
Cowart was accompanied to the Cracker Trail Museum by
Wendell Cotton only two days prior to his death on Sunday, Feb.
25. While he Walked through the museum, the many displays and
pictures brought back some of those memories, and he began to
share stories with us. He was particularly pleased to discover one
of his branding irons, the "Diamond J," displayed prominently in
our glass cases.
After his death, a number of additional items were donated to
the museum, and one resulted in recent successful research and has
proved to be a fine addition to Cracker Trail Museum's relatively
small selection of military memorabilia.
Cowart's father, Dan James Cowart Sr., was born in 1894 and
served his country proudly during World War I. As of this past
Memorial Day, there was only one known living person in the
United States who was a doughboyy" and participated in "the War
to End All Wars" during the period July 28, 1914, through
Armistice Day on Nov. 11, 1918. This was the war that made the
phrase "the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" one which
the majority of my generation and before understands.
Many of my "baby boomer" generation have those World War
I pieces of memorabilia in their possession, just as I have my
grandfather's doughboyy" helmet, artillery belt, diary, photos in
uniform and souvenir postcards from Paris.
James Cowart Jr. also had a piece of that era that once
belonged to his father, and later became one of those items that was
donated'to Cracker Trail Museum, a canteen.
Oi the back of ari aluminum canteen is engraved the letters
and date "U.S. LF&C '1918." Research determined that these
letters stand for Landers, Frary & Clark, a manufacturer in New
Britain, Conn.
Prior to the outbreak of World War I, this company was best
known for its housewares, including toasters, aluminum cookware,
mouse traps, vacuum bottles andthousands of other products. At
the onset of World War I, all production was devoted to military
needs. The factory then turned out machine-gun parts, hand
grenades, trench knives, gun sights, aluminum mess kits and can-
teens for the soldiers.
When the Germans began to use mustard gas, the call went
back to New Britain to create a new filter for gas masks. Women
and schoolchildren were called upon for the assembly of the parts
so they could be rushed to the front.
This aluminum canteen has a screw-on top with a chain that is
affixed to its center that is then attached to the side, thus prevent-
ing the lid from becoming detached and lost. Careful examination
of the inside of the lid will reveal a piece of cork, still intact, that
was placed there as a seal.
Internet research provides a fairly large number of these same
canteens available to the collector at a very reasonable price. But
the value of this dented and marred canteen that now graces the
glass case along with other World War I items at Cracker Trail
Museum is priceless.
It is priceless because it was used by one of our own Hardee
County residents. It became one of those valuable assets that James
,Sr.'s son, Dan James Cowart Jr., deemed important to keep with his
personal possessions over the 84 years of his life, a keepsake that
would have been passed on to his son, Dan James Cowart III, had
young "Jim" not died in 1975.
These Hardee County residents shared more than their family
"Cowart" namesake they shared the military heritage that many
in this area have three generations of proud military service
from the granddad in World War I to the son in World War II and
to the grandson that graduated in 1964 from Hardee High School
and proudly served his country in the U.S. Army.
It is a precious memory for those like me, who can reminisce
about our third, fourth and even more generations of relatives who
have served in the military.
For the Dan James Cowart Family, however, those memories
will not be passed on since Jim Cowart was an only child. But,
Hardee County is more the richer for being able to display these
important parts of our history.
All of us have similar family memories tucked away in clos-
ets, chests and garages. Some are researchable and some are not.
But, all of them carry stories that CrackerTrail Museum would like
to share with you. Won't you consider sharing your family with
the rest of Hardee County?
Cracker Trail Museum is open Monday through Friday.
Contact us at 735-0119 and share your history with us.

for approval of a farmworker
housing application in A-I zon-
ing by a Site Development Plan.
Farmworker housing can be
for harvesting citrus and other
tree fruit such as peaches, truck
or dairy farming or ranches,
either seasonally or year-round.
The new code also specifical-
ly allows dormitory housing as
well as one- or two-family
dwellings, both provided at no
cost to the farmworker, as con-
trasted from migrant housing
where the residents pay rent or
other monetary consideration.
The new ordinance takes out
reference to the federal H2-A
guestworker program, because
the federal program could
change its designation.
Farmworkers provided free
housing must work at least 51
percent of their labor on Hardee
County farms. The 51 percent is
measured by the industry stan-
dard, be it boxes, bushels, milk
pounds or herds.
Farmworker group housing
must be centered on a 40-acre
minimum and 100-acre maxi-
mum parcel of an qperation-
owned property. Units must be
15 feet apart to allow emer-
gency access. The new code
allows 150 persons on a 40-acre
lot up to 375 people on a 100-
acre lot; the density of 3.75 peo-
ple per gross acre derived from
the Davis original application.
Farmworker housing areas
must be five air miles apart,
property line to property line,
and are limited to already estab-
lished grove/farming opera-
tions, not someone who moves
to the county just to create
farmworker housing.
The new Davis application
mirrors the first one, requesting
a Site Development Plan to
locate a 150-worker farmwork-
er housing complex on 40 acres
zoned A-1 on Crewsville Road,
east of Fish Branch Road.

One day of practice is like one
day of clean living. It doesn't
do you any good.

'Cats Bite Bloodhounds 30-12


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee WVildcats domi-
nated play in a 30-12 win over
the Auburndale Bloodhounds
on Friday night.
The 'Cats scored on their first
four possessions and gave up
only two scores all night, both
by Bloodhound junior Jeamiah
Crawford, with a 94-yard kick-
off return and a 56-yard pass
reception.
Tomorrow (Friday), the
Wildcats wend their way on the
long trip to North Fort Myers
(see directions) to take on the
Red Knights, who lost to
Hardee last year. Senior quar-
terback Mike Nelson will have
returning senior running back
Tommy Bohanan in his back-
field, along with classmate
Mike Becker. "They are very
athletic for some positions.
They do a lot that we do. We'll
depend on our good defense
and go at them offensively,"
said Head Coach Tim Price.
Against Auburndale, Hardee
took a 14-0 first quarter lead
and widened it to 23-12 at half-
time. The 'Cats shut out the
Bloodhounds in the second
half.
Price, defensive coordinator
John Sharp, offensive coordina-
tor Steve Rewis, and other
assistant coaches Greg Mann,
Buddy Martin, Leigh Thomas
and Ray Rivas had a variety of
stars to choose for players of
the game.
"It was one of those nights
when everything went well for
us. It gave our guys confidence.


The kids played tough, real
well. Ezayi (Youyoute) had a
good night and the defense did
extremely well, the defensive
ends and backs and D-line were
a total package," said Price.
The coaches chose the entire
line as Offensive Players of the
Game, including Alex Lanier,
Jordan Baker, Carlos Ramirez,
Tyler and Skylar Alden, who
rotated, and Logan Thomas and
Nick Battles, who also rotated.
Defensive Player of the
Game was senior linebacker
David Newcomb, with nine
tackles, one for a loss, a sack
and a blocked punt. Nolan Neu-
hauser and Postene Louisjeune
each had a pair of sacks and
Carson Davis also had.a sack.
Jake Nowakowski had 5 1/2
tackles, Tyler Alden five and
Antjuan Jones four, with two
for losses.
Special Teams Player of the
Game was junior kicker Martin
Vega, who had three PATs, one
of two field goals, and a kickoff
touchback. Carson Davis had
one punt for 33 yards.
Scout Team Player of the
Game was freshman Mikey
Retana, who mimicked the
Bloodhound quarterback in
practice all week.
Offensively, Hardee was suc-
cessful through the air or on the
ground attack. Junior quarter-
back Youyoute had 10 carries
for 113 yards and one TD. He
was 6-of-8 passing for 106
yards and a pair of TDs..
Other runners were soph
Jarrius Lindsey, 10 carries for
63 yards and aTD; junior


Directions To Game

South. At Exit 158 (Tuckers Grade), head west and go
a mile or two to U.S. 41. Turn left (south) and go about

Living


Rise & Shine '
By Ted Simonson
WHAT IS REAL TO YOU?
Why is it that spiritual things seem unreal to so many people?
Faith, Hope, even Love seem to be concepts they cannot grasp.
As a result, going to church to hear these abstractions discussed
seems a waste of time and boring. *A,.
Jesus explained it this way: "Where your treasure is;thiere will
your heart be also." What you desire and seek to obtain is what will
be real to you. If you seek your satisfaction in material things, this
material world will appear very real and the spiritual world will be
as unreal as a dream.
Most rich people have their attention focused on their riches,
how to protect and increase them. This obsession takes over all
their waking hours. Jesus said, "I tell you, it is easier for a camel to
go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the king-
dom of God."
How can we escape from the lure of outward things?
Historically, some people have attempted to do this by withdraw-
ing from house, family and occupation and retiring to the desert.
But they have discovered that their flesh was just as demanding in
the wilderness as in a monastery or casino.
Jesus did not live in the wilderness trying to avoid contact with
others. He said, "You are the light of the world. Let your light shine
before all men that they may see your good deeds and praise your
Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:14-16).
He lived this way and He challenges us to follow Him. Is it
possible? How could His commands be impossible?
Let's take some first steps. One.result will be that spiritual
things become more real!

Stuart Crews
Attends Young
Scholars Program
Stuart Crews, 11, of Arcadia,
recently attended the National
Young Scholars Program for
high-achieving elementary stu-
dents held at the Regal Sun
Resort in Lake Buena Vista.
Stuart was nominated by his
teachers and selected by his
school based on his broad range
of interests and goals, high
achievement, and demonstra-
tion of leadership skills.
The National Young.Scholars

chance to unleash their full
learning potential as they fu'-
ther their interests in specific
areas of study such as environ-
mental science, architecture,
weather, world exploration,
forensic science and medicine.
While in elementary school,
Stuart was a member of Student
Council, a participant in the
gifted program, and a two-year
runner-up in the school district
Tropicana Speech Contest. He
was the ke) note speaker for his
fifth-grade commencement,
where he took home numerous
honors, including being one of
three students to finish with a
3.8 or higher grade average for
his first six years of school.
Stuart has just started sixth
grade at DeSoto Middle School.
He is the son of former
Hardee County residents Mark
Crews and Amy Crews, and the
grandson of Wauchula residents
Bill and Jeraldine Crews,
Tommy and Sue Jackson, and
Joe Gilliard.

Capt. Lonnie Carson, 61, retired chief pilot for the Lee County Sheriff's Office, spoke
to the Hardee Rotary Club recently at the Java Cafe in Wauchula. On Dec. 20, 1999, his
four-seat Hughes 0-H64 helicopter crashed when a connecting rod from the tail rotor
driveshaft broke. He was in a coma five weeks and had 32 broken bones, and two blood
clots on his brain. He was on his way to pick up President Bush to take him to Boca
Grande. He had 15,900 hours of helicopter flight time and 3,000 hours of multi-engine
airplane flight Carson flew helicopters in Vietnam, flying 285 low-level missions over
the Mekong River. He said to succeed in life people should set goals, be prepared,
know their limitations, have a positive attitude, get exercise and eat right. At various
times he transported President Bush and his sons, Texas Gov. George W. Bush and
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. Shown (from left) are Claude Harris, Sue Birge, Teresa and

Fort Green News.
By Rilla Cooper .
773-6710' '
773-6710 *.' .'


Greetings from Fort Green!
Our Lord is still taking care
of us out here in Fort Green.
We did not get any major rain
with the last tropical storm, and
are praying for the same won-
derful care from Hannah.
There is an old adage that we
are never too old to learn, and I
learned something this week.
Byron Allison's sister is Char-
lene Anderson, who works at
the Wal-Mart Pharmacy. That
explains the beautiful wedding
in Rita and Byron's yard recent-
ly.
It was a lovely wedding and
About 70 attended. Charlene's
life-long friend, Pat Jones, per-
formed the ceremony that unit-
ed Richard Allen and Charlene
Anderson in marriage on Aug.
10. We wish Mr. and Mrs. Allen
a long happy married life.
Most of you probably saw the
ad in the paper, but our revival
at Fort Green Baptist begins
this Sunday at 11 a.m. and 6
p.m. Monday through Wednes-
day it will begin at 7 p.m.
If you have never heard
Brother Randy Perry, you will
miss one of the most powerful
evangelistic preachers around!
He was one of the Singing
Perrys, and used to travel and
sing with this Southern Gospel
group. Now he travels, preaches
and sings.
We moved to our present
house in 1965, and there was a
big old seedling grove across
the road. Rose Roberts said her
parents planted it, and our road
is named for her parents. That
grove was always there and had
one of the best navel orange
trees! 'Time and tristesia have
played havoc with it, and the
tree pusher has been busy for
over a week. Now instead of tall
trpes hiding Mary Lois and
Leonard Crawley's lovely
country home with only a
glimpse of it occasionally, I can
see the entire house, vehicles
and etc., etc.!
Their daughter, Michele's,
new home is very pretty. It
faces Hendry Road. For 43
years there were only two hous-


es on Hendry Road, Faye Chan-
cey's and mine. When we
Moved out here there were wild
petunias growing alongside the
road. Gates Coker would drive
by every day going to Dick
Chancey's store, and then
would return a couple of hours
later. He lived on Ollie Roberts
-Road and it was a dirt road at
that time. This is progress, but I
sure would hate to have a subdi-
vision out in our neck of the
woods!
Don't forget to mark your
calendars for Sept. 13. If you
know anyone buried in the Fort
Green Methodist Cemetery,
please let them know to come
out at 9 a.m. We are having a
workday, but more important
we need to know who is in the
unmarked graves! Incidentally
Sherman Cooper mowed the
outside acreage at the cemetery
and it sure looks better. Sharon
Adams mowed the inside again
this week.
Cline "Punk" Albritton was
in the hospital for a few days
but is home now. Please rem-
ember him in prayer. He is
young, but once you start going
to the doctor, it is never-ending!
Savannah Burdeshaw spent a
few days with her granny and
papa. They always enjoy having
her visit.
Earl and Mary Bargeron, Sam


and Arden Rawls and Greg irid
Shuree Rawls camped for the
weekend at Wiaumma to attend
the FGMA. When you are
going somewhere special, you
ignore the gas-guzzling mode
of transportation! Gulf State
sang there on Sunday night. It
was a good weekend and they
all enjoyed it.
'During my first week in
Wauchula in 1964, Kay worked
at the Chevrolet place with J.W..
Thrailkill. Kay called me to let
me know he and Mr. J.W. were
going to Wimauma to sell a car,
but I got the name wrong.
When he was late for supper,
his sister asked me where he
was and I said he went to Wild
Woman! Naturally, they had
never heard of it but Wild
Woman was what I remem-
bered.
Then I learned the name was
Wild Mama, and later learned
the correct spelling for Wimau-
ma and that it was named for a
man's three daughters, using
letters from each of their names.
No one could understand why I
thought Wild Woman and Wild
Mama were similar!
Pray for each other and call
with your news!
In the city of Washington,
D.C., no building may be.built
taller than the Capitol.

and a discouraged heart.
Now I had learned many
years ago that when working
with kids, every day should be
filled with consistent routines,
procedures, and expectations.
So, despite my depression and
broken heart, I trudged through
the morning rituals like a robot
on a tierter, sticking to our
regime. It wasn't tUtil recess
time came upon us that I
noticed something' unusual. My
little Miguel, whom you could


always count on to complete
every assignment, didn't turn in
his homework, meaning' that he
had to miss recess.
I was puzzled, but didn't pay
much attention to this minor
detail. After all, I had to figure
out ways to improve learning' so
we could do better on the FCAT
test next year. But something
inside nudged me out of my
misery long enough to figure
out that something' was not right.
His little head was bent as I
pulled my chair up to his desk,
and it was at that moment that
my heart stopped dead in my
chest!
His bent head gave the
opportunity to get an up close
and personal view of his new
"haircut," if that's what it actu-
ally was supposed to be. I had
been so wrapped up in my own
misery that I had not noticed the
scrapes, scratches, and cuts on
his raw scalp. Needless to say,
I was at a loss for words.
"Miguel, did you get a hair-
cut last night?" I asked then
immediately thought "Duh!
That was a brilliant question!
Maybe that one will be on the
FCAT next year!"
With eyes brimming with
tears and a voice that shook
with fear, my precious little
Miguel whispered the events of
the previous night.
"Dad came home late last
night. When he found the note
in the kitchen that said I had
nits, he gotmad and came and
pulled me out of bed. He
grabbed me by the hair and
dragged me to the kitchen.
Then he made me sit on a stool
while he got the butcher knife
and cut off my hair. Mrs. P, he
was so drunk and I was so
scared! I thought he was going
to chop off my head!"
It was at that defining
moment that I remembered why
I loved working with kids.
With a guilty conscience and a
crushed spirit, I hugged that lit-
tle fella' as we both wept. His
tears were tears of fear mine
were tears of relief!
"Thank you, God!" I whis-
pered. "Thank you for Mi-
guel's safety. Thank you for the
safe haven that this classroom
provides for him. And thank
you for reminding me of why I
wanted to be a teacher in the
first place!"
This experience has changed
my perspective on the FCAT.
Sure, I want to provide my kids
with the best possible learning
experiences so that they can
benefit from the rewards of a


good education. And yes, I still
strive to maintain the highest
expectations and standards of
performance for all of my chil-
dren so that we, as a school,
perform well on the FCAT.
But most importantly, I
remind myself of this: "How
can a child perform to the best
of his/her ability if they don't
feel safe at school, loved by
their teacher, and accepted for
who they are not what they
can or cannot do?"
Yep, I'm preaching to the
choir, for anyone who wdrks


STORMY WEATHER

It was a tropical storm named Fay,
It's long delay left parts of the state in disarray.
A watch was changed to a warning causing
a distressing plight,
Many outdoor objects might become missiles
and take flight.
People bought food, water and gas,
This had to be done real fast.
It rained a mighty downpour,
The gusting winds increased more.
Because of the atmospheric condition,
Some residents had to seek another position.
Shelters opened for special needs,
There were a few who followed these heeds.
It was predicted the storm might follow
Hurricane Charley's exact track.
This got cooperation from public
safety officials and a volunteer pack.
Before Fay left our state there were four landfalls,
Concerned families made numerous telephone calls.
Townspeople prayed to God for Tempest Fay to go away.
He answered when the storm didn't linger another day.

Celebratio
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2008 Men's Community
League played rainouts and fin-
ished the regular season last
week.
. Because of the Labor Day
weekend, the men opted to
postpone their all-day double-
elimination post-season tourna-
ment to this Saturday.
When the season officially
ended Thursday night, Cele-
bration was still atop Division I,
sporting an 11-4 record. Behind
them was TKO at 8-8, followed
by Recycling at Marty's, La
Floresita, JXR Construction
and Outlaws.
Mosaic picked up a win to

Stump The Swami
I By.John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, the 2008 college football season has
begun. The season began with Georgia atop the polls as the num-
ber one team. The Dawgs won but gave up 21 points to Georgia
Southern. The Gators started off slow but routed Hawaii. Auburn
and South Carolina showed strong defenses. Alabama made
Clemson look like a directional school instead of the ACC Champ
for 2008.Good start for.the SEC.
Tim Tebow didn't get a passing and rushing touchdown like he
had been getting but was still impressive. Pat White threw for 5
touchdown passes for West Virginia, quieting critics who say he
can't throw the ball. .
The ACC took ifo on the chin in the opening week. Clemson
rolled 34-10 by Alabama. Virginia let the Trojan Horse loose in
Scott Stadium in a 52-7 defeat. North Carolina State got drilled 34-
10 by Spurrier and South Carolina. Defending Champion Virginia
Tech was beaten by CUSA East Carolina 27-22. Will this confer-
ence ever win a BCS Bowl Game? They do not deserve an auto-
matic bowl as weak as they are overall.
The Pro Football season begins! Miami Fans should be excit-
ed. Brett Favre brings the Jets to Pro Players to face Chad
Pennington. Pennington is a perfect fit for the Bill Parcels system.
Watch Chad get the best of Favre this week.
Now for this week's Bill,O' Fare...
1.) West Virginia at East Carolina WVU will open it up this
week. WVU 51 ECU 24.
2.) Miami at Florida This won't be close with UF at full
force. Florida 56 Miami 13.
3) Marshall at Wisconsin Cann to Passmore all day as
Mark Snyder gets his signature win. Herd defense must slow down
the Badgers. Marshall 31 Wisconsin 27.
4.) Tulane at Alabama Tide rolls. Alabama 52 Tulane 13.
5.) Southern Miss at Auburn Eagles have a solid run game
but AU could be SEC Champs. Look for a hard-fought game.
Auburn 35 USM 21.


6.) Central Michigan at Georgia Tune Up Part 2. Georgia
58 CMU 7.
7.) Troy at LSU Troy plays hard but LSU too tough. LSU
46 Troy 17.
8.) Mississippi at Wake Forest Wake is the class of the
ACC. Wake 31 Mississippi 20.
9.) South Carolina at Vandy Defense will be the key. USC
24 Vandy 17.
10.) Cincinnati at Oklahoma Sooners don't play well
against the Big East. UC 35 Oklahoma 33
11.) USF at UCF Bulls stampede through the Knights.
USF 55 UCF 13.
12.) Western Carolina at FSU Noles found an equal oppo-
nent. FSU 34WCU 27.
13.) Miami (Ohio) at Michigan Rodriguez was the third
choice to replace Lloyd Carr. He may last three years before being
fired. Michigan 24 Miami 21.
14.) Buffalo at Pitt Panthers better win or Wannstedt could
be gone. Pitt 35 Buffalo 21.
15.) Akron at Syracuse Orange better take every win they .
can get. Syracuse 24 Akron 21.
16.) Tampa at New Orleans Bucs start off 1-0. Tampa 27
NO 24.
17.) Jets at Miami Pennington leads Fish over Favre.
Miami 30 Jets 23.
18.) Houston at Pittsburgh Steelers get a test but pass.
Pittsburgh 28 Houston 20.
19.) Chicago at Indianapolis Peyton's Place. Indy 38
Chicago 17.
20.) KC at New England Brady to Moss. Pats 34 KC 23.

We can throw stones, complain about them, stumble on
them, climb over them or build with them.

A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making every-,
thing in its vicinity freshen into smiles.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AIR PERMIT
Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Regulation,
Draft Air Permit No. PSD-FL-344A, Project No. 0490340-012-AC Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc.,
Midulla Generating Station Hardee County, Florida

Applicant: The applicant for this project is the Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc. The applicant's authorized represen-
tative and mailing address is: Mr. Michael Opalinski, Senior V.R of Strategic Services, Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc.,
RO. Box 272000, Tampa, Florida 33688-2000.

Facility Location: Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc. operates the existing Midulla Generating Station, which is an exist-
ing electrical power plant located in Hardee County at 6697 County Road 663 in Bowling Green, Florida. This plant was
formerly known as the Payne Creek Generating Station. The existing facility consists of two combined cycle combustion
turbines (488 MW, total), ten simple cycle combustion turbines (300 MW, total) and miscellaneous ancillary support equip-
ment. The combined cycle units are base load units, and the simple cycle combustion turbines are used during peak
periods of electrical power demand.

Project: Currently, Permit No. PSD-FL-344 requires testing for carbon monoxide (CO) emissions prior to and after the oxi-
dation catalyst (an air pollution control device) on the new simple cycle combustion turbine peaking units. Initial tests
demonstrating compliance were conducted in accordance with this requirement. However, testing prior to the oxidation
catalyst is difficult.because of limited space. The draft permit replaces the requirement to conduct subsequent periodic
CO tests prior to the oxidation catalyst with requirements to test, monitor and report the catalyst reactivity. Tests are still
required after the oxidation catalyst to determine compliance with the CO emissions standards. This project results in a
minor permit revision. Details of the project are provided in the application and the enclosed Technical Evaluation and
Preliminary Determination.

Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of
Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210, and 62-212 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
The propo d project is rot exempt from air permitting requirements and an air permit is required to perform the pro-
posed work. The Permitting Authority responsible for making a permit determination forthis project is the Bureau of Air
Regulation in the Department of .Environmental Protection's Division of Air Resource Management. The Permitting
Authority's physical. address is: 111 South Magnolia Drive, Suite #4, Tallahassee, Florida 32301. The Permitting.
Authority's mailing address is: 2600 Blair Stone Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. The Permitting
Authority's telephone number is 850/488-0114.

Project File: A complete project file is available for public inspection during the normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (except legal holidays), at the physical address indicated above for the Permitting
Authority. The complete project file includes the Draft Permit, the Technical Evaluation and Preliminary Determination, the
application and information submitted by the applicant (exclusive of confidential records under Section 403.111, F.S.).
Interested persons may contact the Permitting Authority's project engineer for additional information at the address and
phone number listed above. In addition, electronic copies of these documents are available on the following web site:
http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/eproducts/apds/default.asp.

Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue an air construction per-
mit to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable assurance that operation of
proposed equipment will not adversely impact air quality and that the project will comply with all appropriate provisions
of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212, 62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C. The Permitting Authority will issue a Final Permit in
accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. or unless public comment received in accordance with this notice results in a
different decision or a significant change of terms or conditions.

Comments: The Permitting Authoritywill accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Permit for a period of
14 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the Permitting Authority
by close of business (5:00 p.m.) on or before the end of this 14-day period. If written comments received result in a sig-
nificant change to the Draft Permit, the Permitting Authority shall revise the Draft Permit and require, if applicable, anoth-
er Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection.

Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an
administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must-be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the
Department of Environmental Protection at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000 (Telephone: 850/245-2241). Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publication of this Public Notice or receipt of a written notice, whichever
occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall
mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an adminis-
trative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate
as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, FA.C.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the following
information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name address and telephone number of the peti-
tioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and
an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of
when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action'or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. f there are none, the petition must so state; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged,
including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; (f)
A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's pro-
posed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A state-
ment of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect
to the agency's proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority's
action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth
above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.

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

Mediation: Mediation'is not available for this proceeding. 9

DOORS COULD BE OPEN,



NEVERMIND JUST UNLOCKED


By SCOTTIE PILKINGTON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your full name?
A: My full name is Larry Criswell.
Q: When.
and where
were you
born?
A: I was
born on Sept. 12, 1951, in Ozark, Ala.
Q: What was it like growing up?
A: It was pretty hard because where
I grew up, if you didn't work, you did-
n't eat.
Q: What did you and your parents
do for a living?
A: I picked oranges, cucumbers and
lots of other things.
Q: I understand that there were 10
children in your family, did everyone
pitch in to help around the house
with chores?
A: Yes, everyone in our household
had their own separate chores to do.
Q: What is the difference in prices
from then and today?
A: The best I can remember, gas
prices were 20 cents a gallon. Today it
is $3 per gallon. A single man could
have a good time with $5 on a week-
end. Cars were a lot cheaper too, com-
pared to today.
Q: Where did you go to school?
A: I went to school at the old
Wauchula Elementary. It is not standing
today. There is an airplane sitting on it


now.
Q: With such a large family, what
did you all do for school clothes?
A: We did the best we could. My
mom and dad bought us school clothes.
They were decent but nothing fancy.
Q: Did the different ages have dif-
ferent classes or were you all mixed?
A: We were all separated by age
groups. We didn't even have pre-school
or kindergarten like,you do today; I
started off in the first grade.
Q: Can you briefly describe the
difference of then and now?
A: Clothes were a lot different back
then. We didn't have designer jeans and
T-shirts like we do today. During the
winter we wore shoes around the house
and during the summer we walked
around barefoot.
There was also less crime. You could
leave your door wide open overnight
without worrying. We were able to trust
our neighbors; I would never try that
today. Back then our neighbors helped
us with our gardening and produce.
Another thing is we didn't have all this
technology that we do today.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

Edited by Spessard Stone from newspaper arti-
cles compiled By Kyle VanLandingham
The following newspaper articles relate vari-
ous attempts to kill Jacob Summerlin (1820-
1893), John W. Whidden (1839-1910), Francis A.
Hendry (1833-1917) and John Parker (1818-
1891), all prominent South Florida cattlemen of
their time.
Attempted Poisoning
Bartow Informant, July 21, 1881: The Tampa
Tribune of last week says, "We learn from parties
who came up from Punta Rassa in Tuesday's
steamer that some two or three weeks ago there
was an attempt at wholesale poisoning at the
hotel of Col. Jacob Summerlin at that place.
"Some dozen persons, including several of the
most prominent cattlemen of the Caloosahatchee
region, who took a meal at Col. Summerlin's
house, were all attacked with severe vomiting
and other symptoms of poisoning directly after-
wards, and were bad sick for several days, the
Colonel himself being probably the worst suffer-
er.
"There seems to have been a similar attempt at
poisoning about a week before this. Col. S.
seems to have been the worst sufferer, and is
hardly yet fully recovered from the effects of the
two doses of poison administered in his food.
"The attending physician thinks that the poi-
son used was either arsenic or corrosive subli-
mate. There are suspicions as to who was the
poisoner, but so far no positive proof."
Bartow Informant, Aug. 4, 1881: A man by the
name of Collier tried to poison Messrs. Sum-
merlin, Whidden and Hendry at Punta Rassa in
order to get their money, but he put too much poi-
son in the coffee and caused them to cast up their
breakfast. Collier would not eat breakfast on
shore. Capt. John Whidden says that he thought
he was done for, and thanks his stars that he was
so fleshy.
Bartow Informant, Aug. 18, 1881: Capt. Jacob
Summerlin offers $500 for the conviction of the
party who attempted to poison himself and others
a short time ago at Punta Rassa.
The Punta Rassa Poisoning
Bartow Informant, Aug. 25, 1881: Below we
give Mr. Jacob Summerlin's letter to the Key
West Democrat in regard to his recent poisoning.
Mr. S. has many friends and relatives in this
county.
'There is some person who has been stopping
at this place or Myers, who is too mean for any-
thing, and I take the privilege of stating to the
public that none of us is safe from such low,
mean, undermining, bound wretches, for on or
about the 25th of June, some one, intent upon
wholesale slaughter, put corrosive sublimate in a
can of-parched coffee, and all of us who drank it
were made deadly sick; but fortunately, we all
went to vomiting, although for three or four
days it looked as if several of us were going to


die.
"Capt. F.A. Hendry was the sickest. I have
been in bed most of the time since, for 20 days,
and still my limbs seem weak, but I am in hopes
to get over it. Dr. Kellum detected the poison,
and declared it to be corrosive sublimate.
"I cannot see any reason for the deed except

the party hoped to get my safe key during the
excitement and rob me. During my absence to
Jacksonville a short time before, the house was
robbed and my day book was missing; no doubt
the same party did this last deed.
"There was another robbery about this time at
Myers. A Mr. Lewis of Cedar Keys came down'
to Myers to marry Miss Collier. When they re-
turned to church he left his money in his trunk at
the house of Capt. James Collier, and before they
returned, his money was stolen, about $160.
"Suspicion rests very strong upon a man, and a
chain of circumstantial evidence makes it quite
plain; but about the poison and my money and
book there is only strong suspicion, but we are
slowly working it up.
"I will give $500 for the conviction of the
party or parties who done the deed. I would like
to save the privilege of tormenting them to my
satisfaction, and I would neither burn, drown,
strangle or kill them. I would have written soon-
er, but my hand would not hold the pen.
"Yours, Respt'y
"J. Summerlin"
Bartow Informant, Oct. 6, 1881: Messrs. Sum-
merlin and Zipprer, on their return from a cattle
expedition last week, were poisoned by eating
food cooked in a copper kettle. We are glad to
know that nothing more serious than some queer
feelings resulted.
Bartow Camp Meeting
Bartow Informant, Oct. 27, 1881: Ed. Infor-
mant: Our camp-meeting bn Bartow circuit
Begins Friday before the fifth Sabbath in
October. It is to be strictly self-sustaining. The
tent-holders will take care of their friends who
come from a distance.
But their neighbors who can tent as well as the
other tent-holders should look out for them-
selves. Persons who go to camp-meetings to run
horse-races and gamble and trade, and all who do
not go for the good of the meeting, can get their
meals at the restaurant.
By order of the tent-holders, G.W. Mitchell.
Bartow Informant, Nov. 5, 1881: Capt. John
Parker, of Manatee County, had doubloons stolen
from him at the camp-ground, last Monday.
Joe Richard, of Bradford County, was arrested
on suspicion, and is under guard here until the
meeting of court ne\t week. as we ha'e no jail.
We learn that Richard had bought a horse from a
Negro, and that some of the gold pieces he paid

Death Of An Old Settler
Bartow Informant, Nov. 12, 1881: We are
pained to learn of the death of Col. John Parker
of Manatee County, who died suddenly at Fort
Meade, Thursday morning (Nov. 10, 1881) of
heart disease.
He left Bartow on Wednesday afternoon, in
apparent good health, and reaching Fort Meade
that evening, passed the night with Mr. P. Dzial-
ynski. Next morning he arose and went to the
meeting, and speaking to George Dzialynski on
his way.
Not appearing at breakfast time, a search was
made for him, when he was found sitting in the
water-closet, dead. Thus another old settler has
passed away.
Bartow Informant, Nov. 12, 1881: Richard, the
prisoner under arrest for stealing Col. John
Parker's money, made his escape last Sunday,
and Judge Mitchell instructed the grand jury to
investigate the matter, which we are informed
they did.
The sheriff placed him in charge of a youth to
take an evening walk. When out of the town lim-
its, he sprang upon the youth and disarmed him,
took the pistol and escaped.
Comment by Kyle VanLandingham: There is a
long tradition and belief in the Parker family that
John Parker died of poisoning. He had sold
some cattle at Punta Rassa and then went to
Camp Meeting near Fort Meade. At some point
he was given a drink of poisoned liquor which
caused his death. Another account says he was
poisoned by food and died in the outhouse with
his feet sticking out the door. It is also under-
stood that Thomas Owen Parker, son of Col.
John Parker, hunted down and killed the man
who had murdered his father.
Cattle Herds
Bartow Informant, March 18, 1882: The fol-
lowing is an approximate statement of herds
owned by some of the more wealthy cattle men
in south Florida: Ziba King, 30,000; Hendry
Bros., 20,000; Summerlin & Son, 12,000; H.T.
Lykes, 10,000; J.T. Lesley, 9,000; Ben. Guy,
8,000; Irvin Lockler, 7,000; W.B. Henderson,
7.000.
W.H. Vanderipe. Nelson Lockler. A. G.

Ben Franklin wanted to
install street lighting in
Philadelphia, but he knew the
city fathers would refuse to
pay the price.
So he hung a beautiful
lantern on a long bracket in
front of his house.
People, stumbling in: the
dark rejoiced in Franklin's
:well~it area. Soon his, neigh-
bors did as he did. Before

Friends and Neighbors f
On behalf of my family and myself, I want to express our sincere gratitude to all of
you for supporting our primary campaign. I would also like to thank my fellow Republican
opponent for his diligent efforts during this time. For those fellow Republicans that
supported me with their vote, I would like to encourage you to continue supporting our
vision for a better and improved Sheriff's Office. In addition, I hope to gain the confi-
dence and support of my many Democratic friends and uncommitted fellow Republicans
to join us with our vision, "We can do better..." I know there is still a lot of hard cam-
paign work to do and my. Democratic opponent is certainly worthy. I believe we can
achieve victory that will ultimately result in a Sheriff's Office that the citizens can have
confidence in. I invite all interested folks with questions, comments and suggestions to call
or email me. Certainly, if I am home stop by and have a glass of tea and we'll talk some
local politics.
SThanks!! ......and GO CATS!!!

Full Circle
By C.J. Mouser


HOW DO DOLPHINS SLEEP?
Tropical Storm Fay had her way with Florida last week.
In our little Gulfside town of Cortez, it amounted to some
wind, squally rain and a matter of hoping there was no flooding.
When the storm was north of us, my 21-year-old daughter, Jill,
wanted to go down to the beach and.experience the full brunt of the
residual winds.
"Come on! It'll be fun!"
By now she had Frog on his lead, and was waiting by the door.
I waffled, thinking about the guy in Fort Lauderdale who went kite
sailing when Fay first made her appearance, and ended up plastered
to the front of a building like a bug on a windshield.
"Come on! I just want to see what it's like on the water right
now," she said.
I sighed. Twenty-five years ago, it would have been me beg-
ging someone else to go down to the beach during a tropical storm.
But now I was the responsible parent and, frankly, I have no idea
when I get to stop being the parent and stop being responsible, so I
reluctantly agreed.
Coquina Beach was deserted except for a few other thrillseek-
ers. I don't know how fast the wind was blowing, but Frog had to
be dragged from the boardwalk to where the waves were breaking,
and where we could get the full effect of the howling wind.
"This is awesome!" Jill yelled as Frog cowered.
After checking out the shoreline, Jill wanted to go out onto the
concrete public pier, which stretches about 100 feet into the surf.
"You know, this is the kind of storm that spawns water
spouts," I warned. "They can be on top of you before you know it."

"Aw, come on, Mom! It'll be fine. Don't be a chicken!"
"I'm not being a chicken, I'm trying to exhibit some common
sense. You ever heard of a rogue wave? How 'bout a tsunami?"
"We won't stay long. Let's just go see," Jill coaxed.
By now my hair was wrapped around my head like a turban
and my bare legs were being sandblasted, so I agreed, thinking we
would stay a few minutes and then leave.
Once we got out on the pier, however, and the wind was
screaming in my face and the waves were smashing against the
rails, I was mesmerized. My imagination began to work overtime:
I pictured myself in a ship somewhere, stuck in such a storm at sea.
What would that be like? What if I had no place to escape to?
"Mom, what do the sharks do in a storm like this?"
"Who cares? Now, let's go. ."
"No, I mean, what do they do?"
"They ride it out."
"How do they sleep? Don't they have to keep moving?"
"They only have to keep water flowing over their gills. They
sleep in a current somewhere, which is the same thing as moving,
which is what we should do ... get moving."
"How do dolphins sleep?"
A particularly intense gust of wind rocked me on my feet, and
I squinted at her, trying to concentrate. I am not completely stupid;
I knew she was trying to distract me, to delay our departure.
"They find themselves a nice, safe, quiet place under a bridge
or something," I answered.
"Do they have to keep moving, like sharks?"
"No, they can hold their breath for a really long time."
"Don't they sink?"
"No, they have a lot of blubber. It keeps them afloat."
I was edging toward the steps that led up to the pier. Somehow
I thought that if I kept talking, I could bait her away from the pier.
"Mom?"
"Yeah?"
"Do you really know anything about how dolphins sleep?"
"Uh-uh."
"Why didn't you just say you didn't know?"
"I guess I thought that if you believe I have common sense,
you might accept it when I tell you that it's time for us to leave," I
yelled.
"All you had to do was say to go!"
"All right, then, let's go! I understand the attraction, but I real-
ly do think there's an element of danger, and I think we've pushed
our luck long enough. "
"OK," she replied, giggling and peering out at me from under
her swirling hair. "Maybe we can go find ourselves a nice, safe,
quiet place under a bridge. Our blubber should keep us afloat."
The wind whipped her giggles away, and I wrinkled my nose
in irritation. By now Frog had abandoned us and was waiting, a
shivering hulk, beside the car.
"What a chicken," Jill muttered.
"Well, I hate to say it, but I think he's the only one of us who
has any real common sense," I said. "Maybe you should ask him
how dolphins sleep."


Letter To The Editor


NO FROSTING, ONLY SEEDS
As I walked up to the casket, bagpipe music softly wailed
"Amazing Grace." I knew Patty was in Heaven, still I felt like cry-
ing. Is it OK to ask, "Why would one of the kindest people I know
die at age 49?
Some eulogies are spread so thick with the frosting of compli-
ments that you wonder if they're really talking about the person
who died.
Admit it; you've experienced this.
But with Patty, no frosting was needed to sweeten or to smear
over flaws in her life.
Days before her death, I had been pondering Jesus' words: "I'
tell you the truth, unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and
dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many
seeds."
Our lives are, initially, a single kernel of wheat. We are com-
pletely focused on our own wants, needs and desires. At the end of
such a life, only a single life has been bettered your own.
Then there is the dying-seed scenario.
Here's how it works: Patty never drove. She usually walked or
rode her three-wheel bike to her numerous volunteer activities. She
helped at a nursing home with her church, at school she mentored
children, and if there was a charity walkathon, she was involved.
Patty was prolific in sending out cards, condolences, get-wells,
on and on. She was even taking piano lessons to fill a need in the
small church she attended. Her pastor said in the- elogy: "Patty
probably shared Jesus with more people than I ever will."
By serving the needs of others, Patty produced many seeds.
She improved the lives of countless people.
Most why-death questions are never answered. There is a
much more important question.
How?
How did you live the time Godcgave you?
Rick Leland, pastor of The Free Church, is a resident of Michigan
who holds a degree in Christia&iministry and has served a two-
year apprenticeship with the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild.
His favorite Bible verse comes from 1 John 1:4, "These things we
write that our joy may be complete." His column is published in
nearly 150 newspapers nationwide.

Wherever a man turns he can find someone who needs
him.
