Ann Graham Lott Plans 2009 Visit Here


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A well-known speaker and
author is visiting Wauchula for
three days next August.
Planning has already begun
for the visit of Ann Graham
Lott, daughter of evangelist
Billy Graham. Normally, Lott
speaks only to groups of 10,000
or more, but is using Wauchula
as a beginning for her small-


town ministry.
Recording artist Fernando
Ortega will accompany Lott in
the three-day stop here Aug. 6-
9, 2009, said Ken Lambert,
chairman of a non-denomina-
tional committee already at
work in the community.
"Ann Lott speaks to people
all over. We have the privilege
to bring her to this small town.
A committee has been formed


and is looking for total commu-
nity support." said Lambert.
He described how the com-
mittee had reviewed possible
venues in the county for a meet-
ing place large enough to
accommodate the 3,000 to
5,000 people expected from all
over Central Florida. Most did
not have sufficient sewer, park-
ing, water and electric. For
some, the elevation was too low


and would present parking dif-
ficulties in the rainy season.
Finally it was suggested that
a huge temporary air-condi-
tioned building be put up at the
Wauchula Municipal Airport,
which has high elevation and
sufficient room for food ven-
dors and parking. Other ser-
vices would be available there,
including a three-phase utility
upgrade.


The Airport Authority gave
unanimous, enthusiastic en-
dorsement of the proposal,
added Lambert. "It would
merge well with the faith-based
Harvest Aviation, for which a
groundbreaking was held Mon-
day afternoon," he said.
"It's a daunting challenge and
I request your full support. I do
not expect there to be any mon-


-I,
etary support other than in-kind
services at the airport," he told
the commission as he abstained
from voting on the issue. He
received unanimous endorse-
ment.
Those interested in helping
with the event can reach him at
work (773-0007) or home (773-
3866).


* Mock Trials Test



School Crisis Plan
By KASEY HELMS
S Of The Herald-Advocate
Injured students frantically jumped out of a classroom window at
,Hilltop Elementary School on Monday as they tried to escape from
men armed with guns.
It was all part of a mock school-violence exercise conducted on
a teacher workday by the Hardee County Emergency Management
office. Its purpose was to test response plans of local law-enforce-
ment, fire-rescue and school-system workers in the event of a real
crisis, such as a bomb threat or an assault.
Emergency Management Planner Jill Peve explained, "Although
this exercise is geared toward school violence, it also can be used
in several types of 911 situations."
*The mock crisis scenario started when law enforcement agencies
responded to an emergency call after four armed intruders broke
into Hilltop Elementary School.

Davin Sarad Simpson, of
2004 Colmar Ave., was sen-
tenced last week in Hardee

DUI manslaughter and driving
under the influence causing
serious bodily injury.
Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle handed down a split sen-
tence of five years in state
prison to be followed by five
years of supervised probation.
Further, the judge suspended
Simpson's license for one year,
ordered him to perform 50


hours of community service
work, and assessed fees of
$290.
Ezelle also required Simpson
to undergo an alcohol evalua-

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Bowling Green City
Commission Tuesday night in-
terviewed a city manager candi-
date and will review a second
candidate on Friday at 5:30
p.m.
Mayor and acting.city man-
ager Perry Knight on Tuesday
recommended Yvonne Kimball
of Satellite Beach for the job at
a starting pay of $55,000 annu-
ally. She would be on a 90-day
probationary status and would
not require a contract. The
mother of three young boys said
she had two other offers but her
first choice is Bowling Green
Her husband is a retired police
officer.
Commissioners Randy Mink
and Richard Barone said they
were under the impression
Knight was going to give the
commission a short list of can-
didates, not just a single choice.
The mayor agreed for the
commission to interview cur-
rent city employee Ron Ehren-
kaufer, a police officer, for the
post on Friday.
Kimball has a master's de-
gree in public administration
and has worked for three cities


- Palm Bay, Titusville and
Satellite Beach. Knight said he,
city clerk Pam Northup and for-
mer city manager David El-
bertson had interviewed Kim-
ball several times and she was
their first choice.
City employee Rodney
Bailey and John O'Bryan were
on the agenda for employee
issues. Bailey aired some com-
plaints about the garbage truck
crew and said a city employee
had mowed a private yard on
city time. Knight said the mow-
ing incident had been corrected
with a reprimand.
Knight and city attorney
Gerald Buhr said the city com-
mission meeting was not the.
proper place to air employee
issues, that the city manager has
the authority to hire, fire and
discipline city employees.
O'Bryan did not speak as
Knight closed off debate on the
issue.
The commission held a first
budget hearing and approved
the first reading unanimously,
with a motion by David
Durastanti and a second by
Mink. The budget includes the
same millage rate at 7.25 and a
50 cents an hour raise for city


employees.
"The new budget is similar to
the old budget. It is a workable
budget. We will not pull out of
reserves but will not add much
to them. Bowling Green has
always excelled when times get
tough," said Knight.
Knight said he was anxious
for the city to hire a city manag-
er since hehas a business that
he needs to devote himself to.
Mattie Wyche said the city
needs to get rid of unsightly
garbage can holders in numer-
ous front Tryards as a beautifica-
tion issue. Buhr said the city has
a current ordinance that
addresses the issue.
Mink said the beautification
committee would like to estab-
lish a park on the vacant corner
in front of City Hall.
The city would also like pro-
vide a park or recreation across
from the Methodist Church and
on the Centanino property near
the water plant on Lake Branch
Road. The property was donat-
ed to the city years ago by the
estate.
Arnold Lanier said Hardee
Youth Coalition has about 150
to 200 youths who can help pro-
vide work for Bowling Green,

The local County Extension Service is looking for someone to
organize and carry out a community or victory garden in Wauchula,
said Carolyn Hendry Wyatt.
The land next to the extension office is provided. This would
allow "folks in the county to come and plant vegetables and harvest
them, and thus reduce food costs as well as promote healthy eat-
ing."
If interested, call Carolyn, Mary Mitchell or Lockie Gary at
773-2164.
This would be an excellent-Boy Scout Eagle project or for a
semi-retired farmer or gardener or a non-ag person with good peo-
ple and organizational skills.

As of Tuesday afternoon it appeared the Tampa Bay Rays were
in a September slump as Boston was close to overtaking the Rays
in the American League East. The Rays still have a good chance to
make the playoffs even if they do not win the division.

The Hardee High Wildcats last.Friday night 5-A North Fort
Myers dug themselves into a 28-0 haIltiie hofewith turnovers and
penalties but showed fight in the second half before losing 35-14.
Hardee has a tough assignment Friday night at Class 1-A pow-
erhouse No.2-ranked Fort Meade and their veteran head coach
Mike Hayde. Last eek Hardee was missing their No. 1 running-
back Jarrius Lindsay who should return the first district game
against Avon Park on Sept. 26.
.The Cats will need to eliminate some mistakes and play a good
overall game Friday to defeat the Miners. Hardee head coach Tim
Price said the Cats will need to play like they did in the 30-12
Kickoff Klassic win over Auburndale.

Polls indicate the presidential race between Republican John
Sidney McCain III and Democrat Barack Hussein Obama is very
close. It will be interesting to see how the campaign plays out
between now and Nov. 4. (

at 6:30 will have a meet and greet for local political candidates at
the Faith Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall in Wauchula,

age. The threatening package was dealt with successfully, ending
the exercise.
Around 150 participants were involved with the exercise, which
tested two separate possible crises, gunmen on campus and a bomb
threat. Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps students and some of
the teaching staff's own children volunteered to portray the unsus-
pecting students. Teachers at Hilltop Elementary School acted as
panicked parents. Schools Superintendent Dennis Jones also par-
ticipated in the exercise, addressing the media in mock press con-
ferences.
Peve reflected on the exercise, "Overall, everything went OK.
Each agency did what it was supposed to do, and each will be able
to take what they learned and apply it to their own areas."
Regarding what needed improvement, Peve added, "There were
strengths and weaknesses found in each agency, which is why we
had this exercise."
Jones had similar reflections, "We know what we have done
right and what didn't work. The important process is the follow-
up."
Many local agencies were involved with the exercise, including
Hardee County Fire-Rescue, the Hardee County Sheriff's Office,
the Wauchula Police Department, the Bowl-ing Green Police
Department and the Hardee County School Board.
Representatives from the Regional Domestic Security Task
Force were also present, including members of the Hillsborough
County Sheriff's Office, Florida Department of Law Enforcement
and the Hills-borough County Bomb Squad.
With so many agencies working together, Emergency Man-age-
ment DirectornRichard Shepard commented on the complexity of
the exercise, "It' ,. is challenge toget everybody on the same
page. It's important that we all get together in scenarios like this.
The more people you have, the moid chaltehginig. It was a great
opportunity to get to work with all the agencies."
The crisis exercise took a year to plan and agencies met every
month. A grant received from the Department of Homeland
Security Emergency Management funded the exercise.
Jones concluded, "The goal is to keep our children safe. I am
pleased and very grateful to all of the folks that participated."

Groundbreaking Held At Airport Family Game Night


By DENISE EREKSON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Groundbreaking ceremonies
were held Monday for a new
hangar facility at the Wauchula
Municipal Airport.
Harvest Aviation and the City
of Wauchula put the spade in
the ground. for construction of
the new 9,600-square-foot mis-
sion headquarters.
Contractor for the new hang-
ar is LCC, Lavon Cobb Con-
struction of Wauchula. Money
for the construction was provid-
ed by an economic develop-
ment grant through the Hardee
County Economic Develop-
ment Council.
On hand for the groundbreak-
ing ceremonies were Harvest
Aviation directors Mike Burch
and Allen Johnston, Lavon
Cobb of LCC, Wauchula Mayor
David Royal, Hardee County
Commission Chairman Dale
Johnson, Airport Manager/-
Chief of Police William Beattie
and various other community


officials.
Harvest Aviation, an interde-
nominational Christian mission
organization, located at the
Wauchula Municipal Airport
two years ago. The mission has
been operating from rental
hangar space since that time.
Burch stated, "We are very
excited about this new hangar.
It will be a great service to the
mission community. When
completed, the facility will also
provide a quality FBO (forward
base of operation) that will rep-
resent the city well to both tran-
sient and corporate aircraft that
will fly into Wauchula for busi-
ness."
The Christian aviation mis-
sion targets ministry work lo-
cated in the Central American
countries of Belize, Guatemala
and Honduras, using aircraft to
ferry people and supplies in
support of missionaries serving
in these countries.
Harvest Aviation has already
begun regularly scheduled


monthly flights in support of 14
mission families currently serv-
ing in Belize. Last year the avi-
ation mission made 33 flights
and carried 133 people to
and/or from foreign mission
fields.
The aviation mission also
performs labor-free mainte-
nance work on aircraft used by
other Christian mission organi-
zations. This summer Harvest
Aviation mechanics performed
engine work- on a twin-engine
aircraft used by Great Com-
mission Air, a medical relief
mission organization based in
northern Guatemala. Work is
soon to begin on an airplane
used by Belize-based Christian
missionaries.
"We are excited about the
Harvest Aviation project and
the work this mission does to
help people share God's mes-
sage to everyone they come in
contact with," stated Wauchula
Mayor Royal at the conclusion
of groundbreaking. "This is


Sing to be a tremendous asset
to our community and the coun-
ty. We are looking forward to
them being in full operation.
Harvest Aviation partners
with two other Florida-based
aviation mission organizations,
Wings of Eagles in Winter
Haven and the Kings Wings in
Boca Raton. The Winter Haven
mission flies medical support
into Oaxaca, Mexico and The
Kings Wings flies in support of
ministries based in the
Bahamas.
Harvest Aviation founder
Johnston noted the mission
hopes to open a flight academy
within the next year which will
train aircraft pilots and mechan-
ics committed to service on the
mission field. The mission is
currently recruiting certified
flight instructors and teachers
to serve with the mission's
flight academy. Once the acade-
my is operational, flight lessons
will also be available to- the
community.


miO Y HALPHn HAHHISUN
Wauchula, county, contractor and company officials gathered Monday afternoon at Wauchula Municipal Airport for
the groundbreaking for the faith-based Harvest Aviation flight hangar.

Revival of the Wauchula
Main Street is in the works.
Advertisements have gone
out for an executive, direct-
or/CRA coordinator to lead the
revitalization of downtown
Wauchula.
"That includes all the busi-
nesses, public and private part-
nerships, planning events 'and
memberships," said Wauchula
Commissioner Jerry Conerly,
who is chairing the activity.
"It will be all of downtown,
Main Street and the blocks
around it," agreed Commis-
sioner Ken Lambert.
The task will include eco-
nomic development efforts in
conjunction with both the
Hardee County Chamber of
Commerce and the county
Economic Development Office.
Hopefully, the new Wauchula

tietung .~'vNew IAJL:


coordinator can be co-located
with the other two organiza-
tions.
The new coordinator is
expected to have experience in
marketing, volunteer manage-
ment, small business develop-
ment, historic preservation,
retailing, design and non-profit
management and project fund-
ing sources. In addition, he/she
must be "entrepreneurial, ener-
getic, well-organized and able
to work well with others."
The position will be funded
by Community Redevelop-
ment Agency (CRA) and Main
Street dollars. The person will
be a city employee with
assigned responsibility for both
CRA and Main Street.
Advertisements will go to
local media as well as the
Florida League of Cities, the
city and state websites and sim-
ilar outlets.
The closing deadline for hir-
ing that extraordinary person is
Oct. 10, after which a the City
Commission will screen the
applications and set a commit-
tee to schedule interviews.
Hopefully, that person may be
available by late October.
Main Street will be holding a
kickoff to revitalize the organi-
zation, contacting all current
and former members, prospec-
tive members, including busi-
nesses and individuals.
In related downtown news,
Rick Schappacher of Kimley-
Horn & Associates, gave an
update on the expansion of the
streetscaping project to the
Main Street block between
Seventh and Eighth Avenues.
Most of the elevation and drain-
age issues have been resolved
and the work has begun, expect-
ing to take less than 60 days.
The blinker lights at Seventh
and Main will be removed
shortly and stop signs are in
place for the north- and south-
bound traffic. Main Street will
be through traffic.
Kevin Doyle, co-owner of
Celtic Crossing, said the busi-
ness is slow and steady. He
asked about outside dining and
was given approval, as it would
be similar to the tables at near-
by Java Cafe.
His request to allow outdoor
customers, to a'fSbe able to
have wine or bew' wilh their
meals was denied as the city
ordinance does not allow open
containers outside a store or
business. Doyle said it would be
served in plastic cups with no
bottles or cans with a "special
service license," from the state.
He said they initially had
some problems with people
wanting to use the pub and
becoming loud and trouble-
some. A couple of people were
outlawed and the problem
stopped. The business has
music and comedy during the
weekend dinner hour, about 6 to
9 p.m.
Commissioners said they
were not ready to change the
city's liquor ordinance prohibit-
ing open containers.



Bay-Scallop

Harvest Season

Closes Today
The recreational harvest sea-
son for bay scallops closes
today (Thursday), area sports-
men and seafood lovers are ad-
vised.
The state Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission clos-
es the harvest annually in order
to help protect and conserve
Florida's bay-scallop resources.
The harvest season will re-
open next year on July 1 in des-
ignated areas along Florida's
Gulf Coast.


The Hardee Wildcats came off an exciting pre-season win and
were unprepared for their trip to North Fort, Myers last week.
Hopefully, they will be ready to take on the Fort Meade Miners
when they go up to Frank S. Battle field tomorrow (Friday) night.
The 'Cats shot themselves in the foot in last week's game, with
numerous ftunbles and other miscues giving the Red Knights a 28-
0 halftime advantage. The 'Cats managed to narrow it to a 35-14
score by game's end, but it was too little, too late.

I just got word from former Wildcat Tony DeLeon, who was
later Junior College Player of the Year. He's now head coach and
P.E. instructor at Fund-Du-Lac Community College in Cloquet,
Minn., about two hours north of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
DeLeon was reporting on two Wildcats now freshmen at his
school. Running back Jayquan Gandy scored a touchdown last
week and already has over 75 yards on the ground. Cornerback
Wade Mahoney had an interception and four solo tackles for the
Thunder.

The junior varsity Wildcats got their season off to a good note
last week with a 22-14 victory over Avon Park with sophomore
quarterback Tre' Anderson showing poise and ability.

The junior high football and softball teams won't get started for
another week or so. Softball opens at home Sept. 22 vs. Sebring
and football starts Sept. 23 at Avon Park. More information should
be available shortly.

The swim teams started the season a bit later than usual, going'
to the Blackman Relays at Sebring on Saturday, minus a few mem-
bers with other commitments. Hardee boys placed fourth and the
girls sixth of the 10 teams competing there. They have two meets
this week.

Cross country starts on Sept. 18 with the Pioneer Run at Pioneer'
Park. Then, Coach Don Trew will see what talent he has this sea-
son.

Both golf teams got their feet wet in the last two weeks. After a
tough road trip, the boys came back to Torrey Oaks to beat Frost-
proof. The girls were short-handed or would have won against
Frostproof as well. They hope to have a four-some for their outing.

The varsity volleyball girls started with one of the two worst
district opponents. By the third set they were going well against
Braden River and it evident that, with a little more effort, they
could have won at least one set. They will also have a challenge,
not an unsurmountable one against perennial district champ
DeSoto, who is not unbeatable. Braden River gave DeSoto all it
could take in their.meeting before the Hardee match.

Men's Softball is officially over after the 16-hour marathon on
Saturday, with Mosaic the big winner. Peace River Electric Co. Inc.
(PRECo) was runner-up and Recycling at Marty's placed third of
the 13 teams which had 24 games scheduled and ended at nearly 1
a.m. Sunday.

Golfers, plan ahead for the third annual Hardee County
Chamber of Commerce tournament on Oct. 18. Sponsors are need-
ed for each hole, or a bronze, silver, gold or platinum level spon-
sor. Please contact Casey Dickson at 773-6967 or www.hard-
eecc.com if you are at all interested in providing a sponsorship.
The format will be a four-man scramble with lunch, mulligans,
a raffle and prizes available. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and the
event has a shotgun start at 8 a.m.

Daniel Lozano and Ruben Ozuna won big at boxing bouts on
Saturday night in Tampa. Ozuna won his fight on points and also
took "fighter of the night" honors. Lozano scored a knockout, or
stoppage, 30 seconds into the first round. It was his last amateur
fight. The 18-year-old launches his professional career with an Oct.
30 bout at Port Charlotte.

Speaking of boxing, those of you who have Showtime will want
to tune in at 9 p.m. Saturday for the light welterweight world cham-
pionship bout between Wauchula's Edner "Cherry Bomb" Cherry
and recently crowned champion Timothy "Desert Storm" Bradley.

Facts to consider ... .. . ..
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement publishes an annual Uniform Crime
Report based upon the data received by all state and local law enforcement agen-
cies. The FDLE report provides a historical and yearly picture of crime rates
throughout the state and individual counties. The information contained in this
campaign advertisement was taken directly from the UCR annual report. This report
can be accessed at www.fdle.state.us.
* In 2007 the State of Florida had a overall crime rate increase of 3.2% from
the previous year.
In 2007 Hardee County had a overall crime rate Increase of 22.2% from the
previous year.
In 2007 the clearance rate of reported Indexed Crimes by the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office was 26.1% (approximately 3 out of 4 reported
crimes are unsolved)
Wauchula Police Department and Bowling Green Police Department had
higher clearance rates of reported indexed crimes.
The Sheriff's Office clearance rate of reported crime decreased from 43.2%
in 2005 to 33.9% in 2006 to 26.1% in 2007. (this establishes a dangerous
and unacceptable trend)
In 2007, even though there was an increase in reported crimes, there was a
10.6% decrease in arrests.

IDA Increases Membership


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
More committees means
more work to spread around.
The Hardee County Commis-
sion recently approved a resolu-
tion increasing the directors of
the Hardee County Industrial
Authority from seven to nine.
Initially the group had seven
members in 1996, and that was
decreased to five in 2001. In
September, 2002, it was amend-
ed back to seven members.
Now, Economic Development
Director Bill Lambert asked for
it to grow to nine members.
He suggested a member each
from CF Industries and Mosaic
Fertilizers because of each
company's partnership and in-
volvement in community
issues.
Lambert said the IDA, which
has a negotiation and approval
focus on the Hardee Commerce
Park and other commercial/in-
dustrial projects, meets at least
monthly and has committee
meetings once or twice a
month.


Lambert said attendance at
IDA meetings has been good.
When a member misses a meet-
ing, he or she comes in to check
on issues which may have come
up.
Members of the IDA are Rick
Justice, Mike Manley, Thomas
Macias, Jama Abbott, Marcus
Shackelford, Dana English, and
Lavon Cobb, whose term had
expired but wasrenewed by the
commission. .
"I came on the board to
replace Bill Mulcay and have
agreed to continue. We are
moving into some of the most
exciting times, when we finally
have some money to obtain our
goals," said Cobb, referring to
the recent $42 million sever-
ance tax monies approval as
part of the Mosaic Fort Meade
Mine Extension DRI.
All members of the IDA are
automatically also members of
the Economic Development
Council. Additional EDC mem-
bers are Nancy Craft, Teresa
Crawford, John Barlow, Oralia
Flores, Keith Davis, Joe Albrit-


Thank You


Hardee


County




I want to express my sincere appreciation for
the many words of encouragement, all the
prayers and most importantly your Vote of
Confidence on August 26th.

Now, we must all rally together to complete
the mission. I want to ask for your continued
support and vote on November 4th.

Arnold Lanier


for


Sheriff of


Hardee County


To All Hardee County Citizens -
I have been a life long Hardee County resident and an employee of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office for nearly 30 years. I have served under
four Sheriff's Administrations: N.H. Murdock, Doyle Bryan, Rickey Dick,
and Loran Cogburn. Having served under these administrations I have
been able to observe first hand what has been successful and also what
needs attention within the Sheriff's Office./
/
My experience not only within the Sheriff's Office, but also with
many local, state and federal organizations with which I have been
.- involved has equipped me to lead the Sheriff's Office in serving
Hardee County.
During this time I have become intimately acquainted with the
S needs of our growing community. Hardee County is faced with
'budgetary concerns with the ever changing economic climate. As
the current Chief deputy, I have already been intensely engaged in
these concerns with the County Commissioners and County
Administration and I am prepared for this challenge as your
Sheriff.
My desire to be your Sheriff is all about maintaining a safe com-
r munity for all our grandparents, parents, children, and grandchil-
,. .- dren as well as future generations. I have been fortunate to raise my
family here and look forward to contributing back to this commu-
nity through my work in public service.
S I appreciate the support and encouragement many have given me
o r so far during this campaign and look forward to personally meet-
ing as many citizens as I can. When citizens and law enforcement
work hand-in-hand, WE have the power to change and impact our
community for a better future.

Wildcats Fumble Game To Red Knights


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The statistics were pretty
even.
That's the good news. The
bad news is that the Hardee
Wildcats were down 28-0 at
halftime and, although they
fought back, could not over-
come the deficit, losing 35-14 at
Mooney Field.
A pair of fumble recoveries
which led to touchdowns were
only the beginning for the Red
Knights, who capitalized on
favorable penalties and Hardee
miscues to give North Fort
Myers the win.
Head coach Tim Price and his
assistants blamed themselves
for not having the Wildcat play-
ers fully prepared for the Red
Knight assault. That didn't
account for the bumbling or
stumbling, which must be cor-
rected before Hardee goes to
Frank S. Battle Field to face the
Fort Meade Miners on Friday
night.
Coming off last year's 22-13
loss to Hardee, one of just two
for the season, the Miners fin-
ished with a 10-2 record and
state runner-up. Hardee was
able to shut down talented
senior runner Onterio McCal-
ebb.
The Wildcats will have more
of a challenge this year in the
Miners' den. They have won the
preseason game 30-7 over
Ocala Trinity and started the
season with a Class IA win 61-
8 over Shorecrest Prep. Senior


back Tamorris Grace had four
touchdowns in gaining 212 of
his team's 304 yards on the
ground. Quarterback Rumeal
Carlton also completed eight
passes for 164 yards, receiving
senior E.J. Phillips and fresh-
man Ronald Jones his favorite
targets.
In the game at Fort Myers,
Hardee had some bright spots.
Player of the Game Skylar
Alden led the defense with a
pair of tackles, three assists,
two tackles for loss and a sack.
Juniors Nathan Tomlinson and
Jonathan Kelly each got a fum-
ble recovery.
Junior Tyler Alden also had a
good night, with twin tackles,
three assists, a sack and a forced
fumble. Senior David New-
comb added four tackles, three
assists and two tackles for a
loss, while junior Antjuan Jones
had a tackle, three assists and
two tackles for a loss.
Junior kicker Martin Vega
had two kickoffs for touchbacks
and nailed both PATs to earn
Special Teams honors for the
week.
Offensively, no one stood
out. Hardee had 222 yards rush-
ing and 96 through the air. Car-
son Davis caught one pass for a
55-yard gain. Scott Donaldson
added two for 18 yards, Nolan
Neuhauser one for 14 yards and
Kelsheem White one for nine
yards.
On the ground, quarterback
Ezayi Youyoute improvised for
10 carries for 65 yards and both


TDs. Jake Mayer had a half
dozen carries for 33 yards and
Jones had six for 28 yards.
Donaldson went two times for a
dozen yards, Neuhauser twice
for four yards and White 11
carries for only 15 yards.
Class 5A North Fort Myers,
the home of pro Dieon Sanders,
won the coin toss and deferred
to the second half.
Mayer gave Hardee a good
start with a 30-yard return.
Jones had a couple of short
gainers. A bobbled snap was re-
covered by Hardee, and Jones
got the first down on the next
carry, but then Hardee was
forced to punt.
Hardee also started well on
defense, stopping Tommy Bo-
hannan for a yard gain. A pass
was incomplete. On the next
play, Logan Thomas sacked

quarterback Jose Feliciano but
was called for a penalty, which
gave the Red Knights a first
down. He was sacked again by
Tyler Alden during the drive
which ended in a Robenson
Merci five-yard TD run. The
Trey Yetter kick made it 7-0.
The teams exchanged punts
and Hardee was forced to punt
again early in the second quar-
ter. North Fort Myers returned
the favor and Hardee had pos-
session. A fumble behind the
line of scrimmage turned the
ball over to the Red Knights,
with Tre' Boston picking up the
errant ball and going 47 yards
to score. With the PAT, it was a
14-0 game.
Hardee punted on its next
series, and the Red Knights
took a dozen plays to score.

tackle for the final five yards.
Another kick and it was 21-0,
with 2.36 still left in the first
half.
That was enough time for
another North Fort Myers TD,
when Youyoute fumbled the
ball in his own end zone and
Benjamin Boiling fell on it for
the score. By halftime, it was a
28-0 deficit.
The Wildcats stopped the
Knights on their first possession
of the second half, but fumbled
the ball back to give North Fort
Myers at the Hardee 22. This
time the Red Knights could not
capitalize and were forced to
punt, fouls moving Hardee up
to its 41.
The 'Cats punted the ball
away, but shortly recovered a
Red Knight fumble to set
Hardee up at the North Fort
Myers 16. A pass to Donaldson
gained three yards, White got
two more and Youoyoute kept it


for an 11-yard TD. The Vega
kick was good. It was 28-7.
The ensuing kickoff went
into the end zone, and the Red
Knights eventually punted to
Hardee. The Wildcats' went a
few plays but were intercepted
by Boston, who fell forward at
his own 1-yard line. One Red
Knight pass picked up 15 yards
on a Hardee penalty. Then
Merci broke loss for an 84-yard
run for the final Red Knight
score of the night. With the
kick, it was a 35-7 game.
The Wildcats wouldn't quit,
however, and managed another
score with just over two min-
utes left in the game. On a
fourth-and-two on the Red
Knight 34, Youyoute scrambled
through the line and rambled all
the way, breaking tackles as he
ran. The Vega kick was good.
The final score was 35-14.

Points to Ponder...
The crime rate in Hardee County has soared to incredible levels. That fact has been estab-
lished by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement's annual Uniform Crime Report and
can be examined on the FDLE website at www.fdle.state.us. The UCR annual report for
2007 informs us that the crime rate in Hardee County in 2007 increased by 22.2% from the
previous year. The clearance rate of reported crimes fell to 26.1%. Approximately 3 out of
every 4 reported crimes go unsolved. Even though Hardee County has experienced an
astonishing increase in the crime rate, there was a 10.6% decrease in arrests.
This cleasly indicates more crimes are being committed and fewer criminals are
being arrested for those crimes! If you believe "We Can Do Better" and want a profes-
sional and efficient Sheriff's Office I am asking for your support and vote on November 4th.
I pledge a NEW and FRESH approach by retooling the inefficient administrative organiza-
tional structure that has become complacent and out of date. Your wasted tax dollars and
other wasted valuable resources must be redirected to where it will do the most good, the
operational components of the Sheriff's Office.


THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE!


WE CAN DO BETTER!


* The citizens deserve to have confidence and trust in the Sheriff's Office
* The taxpayers deserve the relief from escalating local taxes
* The criminals deserve to go to jail.

Fort Green News
By Rilla Cooper
773-6710


Greetings from Fort Green.
The date on this paper is Sept.
11. This date will always bring
to people's minds what they
were doing on that terrible
"9/11" when two commercial
planes were flown into the twin
towers by terrorists. People re-
member what they were doing
when they heard the news of
President Kennedy's assassina-
tion, and I feel sure the ones old
enough to remember know
exactly what they were doing
when Pearl Harbor was bomb-
ed. We need to pray for our
country.
Punk Albritton went to his
doctor in Sarasota on Tuesday.
Leo Blink was in the hospital in
Sarasota last Thursday. Paul
Clark went to the doctor last
Monday to find out if he would
begin treatments, etc. Jason
Keene has begun his treat-
ments and has a good outlook.
Please remember all of these in
prayer.
It was good to see Helen
Plumley and lots of her children
and grandchildren and great-
grandchildren at church Sunday
morning. Mrs. Helen just can't
seem to get her strength back
and get well.
Everyone was glad to see
Stephanie Gugle in Sunday
School this past Sunday.
Bud and Connie Abbott were
Georgia visitors over the Labor
Day holiday.
I was in The Herald-Advo-


cate one Wednesday and people
were lined up waiting to get the
news "hot off the press!" Bim
Davis was there, and he told me
that every Wednesday he goes
to town to get the "Mullet,
Wrapper." I had forgotten that
name, but people have always
had pet names for things they
love.
Our list of sick seems unend-
ing. We were called last Sunday
to pray for Craig Abbott, as he
was in Valdosta, Ga., for car
races and was admitted to the
hospital with heart problems.
Randy and Faye Davis had
the preachers for Sunday din-
ner, Brother Randy Perry and
his wife, Mary, and our preach-
er, Brother Brian Laker, Jenni-
fer and children. Sherman and I
were among the other lucky
ones invited to this feast.
When I cook Sunday dinner, I
never cook more than one main
meat dish and it was always eat
what was on the table or go
hungry! This is not the case
with Faye as she cooked three
meat dishes, numerous vegeta-
bles, cornbread and biscuits and
homemade guava jelly, peach
preserves and guava mar-
malade. It was like eating at a
restaurant where you could
order what you wanted, only
better.
Faye has this good Southern
cooking down to an art! To top
it off, she had three desserts!
Everyone was ready for that

Sunday afternoon nap after this
feast!
The other night Sherman and
I were visiting at Bertie Keen-
er's home in Bradley Junction.
Their neighbors have chickens
and they were running in both
yards. I commented there were
Rhode Island Reds, Domi-
neckers and Banties. The "city-
raised people" didn't realize I
was saying the different types
of chicken. Of course, the spell
check on this computer has
never heard of the different
brands of chickens and I could
not find it in the dictionary, so if
Dominecker is spelled wrong,
blame it on the computer!
This brought back memories
of the excitement my brothers
and I felt when the mailman
would blow the horn and Mama
would go get the big box of 100
baby biddies that we had
ordered from Sears & Roebuck.
The box would have little round
holes in the sides for ventilation
and the cutest little yellow
fuzzy biddies inside.
Mama would suspend a light
bulb over the box to provide
warmth, and their home would
be in the kitchen near the wood
stove for about a week. After
this time they were old enough
to move to the "chicken coop"
in the back yard. One time they
were my older brother's 4-H
project. Those were the days!
The workday at the Metho-
dist Cemetery is this Saturday.
Bring your Weedeaters, rakes,
lawnmowers and anything else
that you can use to clean up the
cemetery. We will begin at 9
a.m., stop for hot dogs at noon
and be through by 2 p.m.
Please come out and help.
Please remember to pray for
one another and call me with
your news.

Lozano To Turn Pro


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Ending his amateur career in
spectacular fashion, Daniel
Lozano now turns his attention
to pro boxing.
The Bowling Green 18-year-
old will have his first profes-
sional fight on Oct. 30 in Port
Charlotte. Hopefully, that will
lead to television exposure on
Teles Futura, the Channel 50
Hispanic station, for his next
fight.
He will fight in the super fly-
weight division of 112-115,
although he moved down to 106
for Saturday's event.
Lozano and stablemate
Ruben Ozuna, 13, went to
Tampa Saturday evening for a
successful evening. Ozuna not
only won all three rounds in his
95-pound bout but also was
awarded a special medal as
"fighter of the night."
Meanwhile, Lozano was en-
couraged by the presence of
Wauchula pro Edner Cherry in
his corner. Cherry, who leaves
shortly for his world champi-
onship bout to be seen on
Showtime on Saturday night,
took time to join trainer/father
Daniel Lozano in the son's cor-
ner.


Young Lozano responded
with a knockout in 30 seconds
of the first round. He was the
main event of the evening, chal-
lenged by a Puerto Rican 18-
year-old boxer who has recently
moved to Tampa.
Over the last decade, Lozano
has accumulated 10 belts for
championship wins, whether in

the state Police Athletic Lea-
gue, Golden Gloves or other
venues. Now, he hopes to begin
collecting professional titles as
Cherry has done, and eventual-
ly move up to. the championship
level.


Bowling Green's Daniel Lo-
zano sports a new champi-
onship belt, his 10th in
amateur boxing. He turns
pro at an Oct. 30 bout in
Port Charlotte.

City Supports


Youth Service


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
About 150-to 250 young peo-
ple will be on hand.
The large group is expected
to spruce up Wauchula during
an activity event called re:verb.
Organized by a half dozen or
more youth pastors in the com-
munity, re:verb is centering
young people on service, said
Pastor Chris Rutledge of
Florida's First Assembly.
In conjunction with the
Hardee County Youth. Coali-
tion's intent to help youth have
positive activities, the Oct. 18
city cleanup is targeted to meet
the needs of widows, orphans,
and the community.
"We are willing to do what-
ever needs doing," said Rut-
ledge, representing the other
youth pastors in the community.
He hopes people will contact
,him at 773-9386 by Oct. 3 to
give them plenty of time to pre-
pare for the event and do the
most for the most people.
' This is terrific," said Wau-
chula Commissioner Ken Lam-
bert in making the motion to
approve the support of the com-
mission.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
Approved the tentative
2008-09 budget of
$27,335,974. The final public
hearing will be Sept. 22 at 5:45
p.m. Two other items will be on
that night's agenda, including a


workshop on the city's cost of
power adjustment and the appli-
cation for Florida Rural Water
Association funding for a fifth
well.
Declared a state of emer-
gency in conjunction with the
state's declaration in case of
damages-from Hurricane Ike.
Appointed Commissioner
Connie Spieth to the police and
fire pension board committee.
Held second, and final,
public hearing on the local
communications services tax
rate increase from 5.10 to 5.22
percent. This applies to all per-
mit fees for providers of com-
munication services that use or
occupy municipal roads or
rights of way.
Approved Gloryseekers
placing small signs outside City
Hall in advance of its use of the
auditorium for a three-day con-
ference, and Sutton Monuments
displaying tombstones on its
property at U.S. 17 and Oak
Street. "It is Commercial-2 zon-
ing and that's part of their busi-
ness," said Commissioner Jerry
Conerly.
Approved Celtic Cross-
ing putting outdoor dining by
its business on West Main
Street, similar to that at Java
Cafe. A request to allow out-
door diners to have wine or beer
with their meals was denied as
the city ordinance does not
allow open alcohol containers
in public.


Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson


A LESSON IN THE DUST
I took a walk this morning before the heat of the day. The sun
was already baking the dirt road when I stretched my legs and
made my way out of the deep shadows around the house.
That's when I noticed ants had burrowed into the hard surface
of the road and were traveling back and forth through the tiny
entrances they had made. i n some places, their hills were half an
inch high.
I remembered how I'd treated the ants years ago as a boy. I'd
often kicked over their hills just to see their wild scramble to reor-
ganize and rebuild. I'd thought it great fun to have such power over
them.
Not any more. They were made.-by a wise God who had
designed them for a purpose, and they were busy at it. Even the
Bible points out their diligence "Go to the ant, 'tfou sluggard; con-
sider her ways and be wise" (Proverbs 6:6).
I, too, am a creation of God. My purpose is to glorify my
Creator. Am I doing job as well as they are doing theirs? It was an
uncomfortable question.
Another thing. Who was I to carelessly kick over the little
structures they made with such care and taken so long to erect?
I stepped around the scene of their activity. I was more
thoughtful as I passed on up the dirt road. I even prayed for a dili-
gence like theirs.

ry JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A change in personnel left
annual applications slide.
Seth Kohn, city engineer for
Bradenton, accepted responsi-
bility for the oversight in not
making yearly applications to
spread wastewater residuals,
called sludge, on Hardee
County properties.
"We had a staff changeover
and simply neglected to get the
permits renewed," Kohn said.
He said the city would pay the
$8,368 in fines and penalties as
well as comply with the 60-day
"cease and desist" order until a
current application is submit-
ted.
The Hardee County Commis-
sion split 4-1 on imposing the
penalty. Commissioner Minor
Bryant said it was partially the
county's fault for not catching it
since permits were not renewed
since 2001.
West Palmer said a review of


the ordinances on spreading AA
residuals let him to the discov-
ery that permits were not cur-
rent. He said the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion as provided him a list of
theirr haulers who are spreading
sludge on residents' property.
Since the price of fertilizer is
so high, many landowners opt
to accept th'e cake, compost or
pellet material, which is some-
times stabilized with lime to
raise the PH or alkali levels.
County Manager Lex Albrit-
ton said there have been no
complaints since 2002 or 2003
when an accidental or intention-
al dumping on Murphy Road
created heavy odor problems
for the neighborhood.
Kohn said Bradenton doesn't
use lime but long-term aerobic
congestion, at least 155 days.
They haul the septage in cake
form, which makes it easier to
spread. They keep a tractor on-
site to spread it the same day.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both the Hardee boys and
girls golf teams have gotten
their seasons going.
The Hardee boys began with
an Aug. 26 trip to Port Char-
lotte to play against the Pirates
and Ida Baker High.
"We have not performed up
to our capabilities yet," com-
mented boys coach George
Heine. Ida Baker had the low
score of the day at 170, with
Port Charlotte at 174 and Hard-
ee at an uncharacteristic 187.
Soph Taylor Barlow had the
best round, with one birdie, in
completing the course in 43.
Junior Grayson Lambert fin-
ished at 46 and senior Ben
Krause at 48.
Hardee had a better outing on
Sept. 2 at home against Frost-
proof, winning 173 to 193. Bar-
low and senior Jake Crews
rounded the home Torrey Oaks
course with 42s. Krause had a
birdie in completing at 43 and
soph Justin Bromley also had a
birdie.
"We are still knocking off
some rust and should be better
later in the season," commented
Heine. The boys hosted Port
Charlotte on Tuesday and greet
Avon Park today (Thursday).
On Monday they will partici-


pate in the annual Hawkins
tournament in Sebring. Next
Thursday's match is at Lake
Placid.
The Lady Wildcats didn't
have a full team in their first
outing, a Sept. 4 home match
against Frostproof. They proba-
bly would have won, finishing
at 224 with only three players.
Frostproof finished at 272.
Coach Bryon Jarnigan had
three sophomores ready to tack-
le the Hardee course. Kara
Norris led the team with a 52,
followed by Lauren Moore and
Emily Williams. Freshman
Emma Marshall will be on hand
when the Lady Wildcats play
DeSoto at the Bluffs today
(Thursday).
Next week, Hardee is in a
quad match at the Placid Lakes
course against Lake Placid,
Desoto and Avon Park. Then,
they take a break until a visit
from those three schools on
Sept. 22.
Hardee remains in Class 1A-
District 16, against Avon Park,
Braden River, Bradenton Prep
and Bradenton Christian (both
boys only), Sarasota Cardinal
Mooney, DeSoto, Lake Placid,
and Sarasota Out-Of-Door,
Bradenton St. Stephens and
Sarasota Christian (again all
boys teams).

He asked for an exception to the
ordinance requirement that B, A
and AA sludge be incorporated.
"The State of Florida consid-
ers Class AA residuals suitable
for application in and around
areas subject to public activity,
such as schools, golf courses
and parks. Further, it has been
observed that after land spread-
ing, the residuals in question are'
completely assimilated by the
receiving soils within 72
hours," he said in a cover letter
to Palmer.
The commission instructed
attorney Ken Evers to amend
the sludge ordinance to remove
the requirement for incorpora-
tion of AA residuals. It will
remain for A or B class sewage.
Palmer was asked to review
the DEP list of other haulers
and contact each one about
delinquent permits' and appro-
priate fines and penalties.

In 18th century America, artists journeyed from town to town
with paintings of men and women, complete in every feature
but the faces. A person wishing to sit for a portrait had to select
the body he liked best and let the artist fill in the missing hair
and face.

Emergency Management Director


TROPICAL DEPRESSIONS
Well, gentle readers, as you know somebody has set the trop-
ics to "warp speed" and we have spent the last few weeks dealing
with Tropical Storm Fay, Hurricane Gustav, Tropical Storm Hanna
and now Hurricane Ike.
Current forecasts don't indicate this trend will slow down or
stop anytime soon, so yours truly is going to be busy for a little
while. Having, said that, I am going to turn, this month's little gem
of wisdom over to a guest columnist, Darrell Davis. Take it away,
Darrell! '" *

GUEST COLUMN
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Darrell Davis and
I volunteer for Hardee County Emergency Management as the
ESF2 coordinator.
You might be thinking,."What is an ESF?" ESF stands for
Emergency Support Function. The state of Florida has defined 17
Emergency Support Functions for use by Emergency Management
agencies throughout the state. ESF 2 is communications, which is
one of the most important needs in a time of emergency or disas-
ter.
I am responsible for overseeing operation of the newly revital-
ized communications room in the Emergency Operations Center.
Operations involve regular communications tests of all our equip-

ment and, of course, activation of the communications room when
the EOC is fully activated.
A major part of this communications room is the Amateur
Radio station. Amateur Radio, or "Ham" radio as it is more often
known, is a non-commercial radio service licensed by the Federal
Communications Commission for the following purposes: (1) to
provide communications in times of emergencies or disaster; (2) to
promote technological advancement and innovation in all areas of
radio communication; (3) to promote international and domestic
goodwill. Amateur Radio is not CB, or Citizen's Band, radio.
Amateur Radio is multi faceted. There are many things you
can do in Amateur Radio, and guess what? They are a lot offun!
Amateur Radio operators: (1) talk all over the world via short-
wave radio; (2) talk to friends and acquaintances locally with
radios that function just like two-way radios you may see in deliv-
ery trucks, school buses, etc.; (3) have their own satellites in Earth
orbit and talk through them; (4) have an amateur radio station on
the Internationat'Space Station and often fly Amateur Radio onm
Space Shuttle flights; (5 send and receive e-mail via amateur radio
to locations where commercial Internet service is not" available
(like onboard ships at sea or remote locations on Earth); (6) send
and receive still pictures and even television pictures; (7) send and
receive weather data and post that data to the Internet; (8) while
driving, automatically transmit their location so friends and family
can keep up with them while they are on the road; (9) spot severe
weather and report that information back to the National Weather
Service; and (10) build their own antennas, radio equipment and
accessories.

SOUND EXCITING?
Amateur Radio is not what it was years ago. Amateur Radio
strives to move along and often creates technological advancement.
Amateur Radio gives back to the local community by providing
communications in times of disaster or emergencies, whether they
are natural or man-made. Amateur Radio operators also provide
communications for charity events like bike rides, walk-a-thons,
the annual Tampa Bay Multiple Sclerosis bike ride, the Tour De
Sebring during the Labor Day weekend, Avon Park Christmas
Parade in late November, and many other events.
You might be thinking at this point, "How do I get into
Amateur Radio, as this is sounds like"a lot of fun?"
To get into Amateur Radio, you have to get your Amateur
Radio license. However, getting a license is not difficult. To get
your technician class, which is an entry-level license, only requires
you to pass a 35-question multiple-choice written exam.
There is an Amateur Radio club here in Hardee County that
can help you get your license. The club is the Hardee Amateur
Radio Group, or HARG as it called. HARG conducts an Amateur
Radio class on a regular basis to prepare anyone to take the exam,
so you breeze through the exam with no problem!
HARG has a Web site you can check out: http://harg.drive-
hq.com. HARG meets normally on the first Monday;of the month
at 7 p.m. at the Agricultural Extension Office, which is behind the
Hardee County Agri-Civic Center.
For more information on ham radio, you can go to the National
Association for Amateur Radio Web site at http://www.arrl.org for
a lot more information. You can call me at 773-6969 or e-mail me
at kt4wx@arrl.net if you have any more questions.

Thanks, Darrell. . We now return you to your regularly
scheduled program.

TIP OF THE MONTH
Standing water is an open invitation for mosquitoes to breed
and lay eggs. Eliminate this threat by turning over buckets, empty-
ing birdbaths regularly,'and properly disposing of old tires. Also,
check gutters and downspouts for any water collecting in hidden
places.
Remember, managing your emergencies begins with you.

Sophomore quarterback Tre'

Early in the third period, soph
Quinton Carlton ran the final
six yards to increase the Wild-

Hardee got its final score

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.

Farmworker Housing Approved


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
This time around everything
Sent smoothly.
There was little opposition at
Thursday night's Planning &
Zoning meeting at which Davis
Enterprises received approval
for its Site Plan to place seven
single-story housing units for
150 farmworkers and one
mobile home dwelling for the
project manager's residence.
The location is the same, off
the northeast corner of Crews-
ville Road, east of Fish Branch
Road. Approval includes a
dozen conditions, including
additional buffering if the grove
around it dies off or is removed.
Owner Joe L. Davis Jr. and his
attorney Clifford Rhoades of
Sebring agreed to all the condi-
tions imposed.
Approval was granted on a 6-
1 vote, with board member Don
Chancey abstaining, and James
Barncord opposing it. "What's
the difference between a slave
camp of the 1700s and a labor
camp of the 1900s?" he asked.
The biggest opposition came
from nearby resident Monty
.Goodwin, whose property is
1,300 feet west of the site. He
said the project "will turn our

"The opposition is whipped.
You're putting this before our
people. You listened, but not

stroying our lives. Mr. Davis
owns property all over, why
didn't they look for an alterna-

Volleyball Girls Get Going


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
First-night jitters hit the
Hardee Lady Wildcat volleyball
team.
The girls had a varsity-only
encounter last Thursday against
district foe Braden River. The
Lady Pirates had started their
season two days before against
District 10 dominator DeSoto
and battled the Lady Bulldogs
to the wire before losing.
Hardee, in turn, felt in awe of
Braden River and it showed in
early mistakes. "We were super
nervous and didn't pass well at
first. But, by the third game, we
were in it; we were even ahead
by the middle of the game. It
shows we can play with them,"
commented Head Coach Ken
Leupold.
In the first game, Braden
River won 25-9 behind the ser-
vice points of junior Regina
Aluse and sophomore Kaitlyn
Benedetto, each with seven
points.
For Hardee, junior Marisa
Shivers got the first service
.point. Soph Lacey Garza got the
next two and classmate Eryn
Mahoney added two more.
Vanessa Gara got one and
Chelsey Steedley also got one.
Senior Krystin Robertson got
the final two points for Hardee.


In game two, Hardee got the
first point, with an errant Pirate
return. The next serve was long
and gave Braden River a point.
That was the last tie of game
two, as Aluse ran off three
points before Mahoney returned
one to a vacant spot on the
Pirate side of the court.
When a Lacey Garza serve
was returned, then blocked at
the net, Braden River went on
to increase its lead to 6-3. A
Mahoney serve made it 6-4,
before Rachel Hubbard got
more points. Slowly, and surely,
Braden River increased its lead,
winning 25-11.
Lady Momentum began to
swing in game three. Kember
Townsend blocked the Pirate
return and gave Hardee the first
point. A net served evened the
score. Kenna Kimbrill got a
couple points for Braden River
and Robertson came up. She
served a couple of aces, a cou-
ple of returns went awry and
Hardee let 7-3.
Braden River got an ace into
the back corner and served one
just inside the sideline. Very
quickly it was a 7-7 game.
Hardee wasn't ready to quit
and, behind Shivers, went in
front again 9-7. Kelly Shiro
came back up. The game was
tied at 9-9 and 10-10.


Momentum deserted Hardee
when Trisha Zubnick went on a
nine-point spree and put the.
game out of reach. Hardee did-
n't go quietly, however, with
Steedley using her jump serve
for four points. Braden River
came back for the final point to
win 25-19.
The varsity includes seniors
Robertson, Townsend and
Naomi Alvarado; juniors Steed-
ley and Shivers; and sophs Lac-
ey Garza, Yesenia Vargas, Ali
Holle, Mahoney and Vanessa
Garza.
The junior varsity would look
ahead to a Monday trip to Lake
Placid to get into its first action.
Coach Jonathan Leupold and
the players were looking for-
ward to it.
"They're coming along very
well. They are young but im-
proving every day. They will be
pretty solid on passing and their
work ethic and focus are superi-
or," said the first-year JV coach.
His squad includes junior
Alejandra Rodriguez; sophs
Sarah Beyers, Dashia Blandin,
Lacresha Carlton, Hannah
Jacobs and Deserea Newcomb;
and freshmen Maria Anselmo,
Angelica Flores, Cynthia Gar-
cia, Meghan Graham, Sabrina
Hernandez, Summer Palmer
and Kaila White.

Mosaic Wins Marathon Tourney Cross Country Opens Sept. 18


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It was a long, long day.
Starting at 8 a.m. and finish-
ing well after midnight, the
2008 Men's Community Soft-
ball tournament lasted seeming-
ly forever, especially to the
umpires and scorekeepers.
The Saturday tournament fin-
ished just before 1 a.m. Sunday,
with Mosaic winning the cham-
pionship game over Peace
River Electric Cooperative Inc.
(PRECo).
During the long day, PRECo
had played eight games, while
Mosaic remained in the win-
ner's category until after 6 p.m.
and played only five games.
The day could have been
shorter if the three teams which
had double forfeits had notified
coordinator Carl Coleman that
they weren't coming and the
competition could have been re-
scheduled. Field 3 had forfeits
on its first three games, not
starting an actual game until
after the noon hour.
There were seven games on
Field 2, six on Field 3 (only
three games played) and 11 on
Field 3, .which drew the most
heated games.
Some games were very diver-
gent, some very, very close, de-
cided by one run.

FIELD 2
On Field 2, the day began
with a Celebration 28-3 win
over Team Blacklist, had a for-
feit by Nemesis next and con-
tinued with a 21-19 squeaker
with Merrill Lynch outlasting
A-1 Safari Glass.
Doyle Tyson, Raul Garcia
and Paul Samuels each scored
three runs for Merrill Lynch and
Brent Gilliard was the only
three-tally batter for A-1.
After another forfeit by
Nemesis, the 2 p.m. game was a
win for Recycling at Marty's,
which also won the next two
games on Field 2.
By 3:30, it was down to just
two fields, and by 6 p.m., it was
down to just Field 4.
FIELD 3
Forfeits by La Floresita,
Brant and JXR Construction
idled the Field 3 crew until
12:30 p.m. Then A-I bounced


back for a loser's bracket win
over Blacklist before losing to
PRECo. The final game on
Field 3 was another PRECo
win, this one over TKO.
FIELD 4
After an initial forfeit by the
Outlaws, Field 4 heated up, and
continued that way for the next
15 hours. In the first action,
Celebration outlasted PRECO
16-15, which dumped it into the
loser's bracket and many more
games.
Leadoff batter Clint Hendry
hit for the cycle with a homer,
triple, double and single for
Celebration. Andrew Hinojosa
and Willie Gilliard joined him
as four-score batters. Matt Bell
and Bryan Cook homered for
PRECo. Scott Driskell was the
only triple-tally batter.
Mosaic picked up its first win
in the 11 a.m. game. PRECo
nearly shut out its next oppo-
nent. In the 2 p.m. game,
Merrill Lynch downed Celebra-
tion 9-6.
Garcia and Bud Plumley both
tripled for Merrill Lynch.
Ruben Rivas was the only
three-score batter. Jose Carrillo
tripled and Hendry was the only
Celebration batter to come three
times.
Mosaic won its 3:30 game
and came back at 5 p.m. to beat
Merrill Lynch 13-9 despite a
pair of Ryn Heine homers for
Merrill Lynch. He had four hits
and scored three times. For
Mosaic, West Palmer, homered,
singled and sacrificed for three
RBIs. Mike Jeter also had three
hits for three RBIs and Wally
Helms had three hits.
Mosaic picked up its first loss
in the 6:30 game, which PRECo
won 22-21. Daniel Barnett
homered and doubled among
his five hits and five RBIs. for
PRECo. Driskell also had five
RBIs, but on six hits. Both
scored four runs. Palmer home-
red twice for Mosaic in its only
loss of the day.
The next game was another
nail-biter for PRECo in its 15-
14 win over Merrill Lynch.
Driskell and Barnett each
homered and Billy Alexy and
Bell each had four hits for
PRECo. Heine doubled twice
and scored three runs for


Merrill Lynch.
PRECo won the next game
20-10 over Recycling, setting
up the championship game
against Mosaic for all the mar-
bles. Each team had one loss.
Mosaic had the heaviest hand
and won 31-19.
Michael Carte, Mike Mahon-
ey and Mike Jeter all homered
for Mosaic. Carte circled the
bases five times and Palmer,
Mahoney, Billy Hernandez and
James Blum each added three
runs. Barnett hit a pair of
triples, a double and twin sin-
gles for PRECo and Rodger
Brutus homered and doubled.
Both batters came home four
times.



I willingly confess to so great
a partiality for trees as tempts
me to respect a man in exact
proportion to his respect for
them.
-James Russell Lowell
To resist the frigidity of old
age one must combine the
body, the mind and the heart-
and to keep them in parallel
vigor one must exercise, study
and love.

Thank You Hardee County
It has been my honor and pleasure to have represented many of you in the 2008 race
for sheriff of Hardee County. I appreciated all. of your kind words of encouragement
throughout the campaign as well as the countless volunteers who worked so tirelessly
behind the scenes.
Despite our defeat, many of our campaign suggestions have been adopted by the current
administration at the sheriff's office. For instance, the sheriff's office has re-applied for
the accreditation of its law enforcement division. On the heels of our recent ad, the
sheriff has now expanded nursing medical coverage at the jail to include twelve-hour shifts. So our effort
was not unheard as we helped to make law enforcement better for the Hardec County community.
However, there is still a lot of work to be done and our message must continue to be delivered. Our
community just cannot take another four years of questionable administrative decision-making by the
Lanier dynasty. With that sentiment in mind, please consider joining me in the support of Roger Clark
for Sheriff of Hardee County! Together we can make a positive difference in the way law enforcement is
administered in our community.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER


: One day, while video tpiiig
in our gardens, the bright
lights went out. The circuit
had become overloaded. After ,
turning off some unnecessary
equipment, the lights came
back on.
Just as we.can overload our
lines with work, so we can
overload our lives with worry.
No one is big enough to
carry the burdens of yester-
day, today, and tomorrow at
the same time.
Worry won't empty your
days of your sorrows. It will
empty them of your strength..
The Living Bible says,
"Don't be. anxious about
tomorrow. God will take care
of your tomorrow, too. Live
one day at a time."

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well Football Fans, the 2008 college football season is about
to begin with some major matchups. Early on, it was directional
schools getting pay checks for trips to major schools. This week,
Ohio State plays at Southern Cal., Michigan is at Notre Dame,
while the most intriguing game is Wisconsin at Fresno State.
Tim Tebow didn't look like "Superman" all night against
Miami but came up big when it counted in the 26-3 win. The
Gators opened up like gangbusters L. 're having to put it away in
the fourth quarter. UF now has a weeK off to prepare for a trip to
Knoxville to play' the Tennessee Vols.
FSU opens with a big win over the Catamounts of Western
Carolina and now faces the Movin' Mocs of UT Chattanooga.
Bobby wants to make sure he beats Jo Pa in total wins but this
could put FSU in the 1-AA Playoff. The third game for FSU is at
home versus Wake Forest. That could set the tone for 2008 for the
Noles the following week.
USFs Jim Leavitt made it clear the Bulls are done with UCF.
He sees no reason to continue the series. The Bulls are in a BCS
Conference and want to schedule teams from BCS Conferences.
UCF is a member of CUSA. O'Leary would love to join the Big
East but it is doubtful the conference would ever take UCF.
Personally, I think the USF-UCF, game is a natural but Leavitt
insist he wants to play Florida, FSU and Miami, notqUCF.
BCS Busters for 2008 could be East Carolina, BYU and
Fresno State. East .Carolina's Pirates have defeated the ACC
Champs Virginia Tech and Big East Champs West Virginia on
back-to-back weekends. ECU should be favored the rest of the sea-
son. Fresno could knock off Big 10 Wisconsin this week. BYU beat
Pac 10 Washington this weekend.
The Pro Football season began with Chad Pennington versus
Bret Favre. Favre and the Jets took a 23-17 victory but the
Dolphins showed some life with Pennington at QB. They may not
be the 1972 Dolphins but without a doubt, they are better than last
year.
Now for the first week of college football's Bill O' Fare ...
1.) Ohio State at Southern Cal Trojans will dominate this
game and solidify a Number One Ranking. USC 33 OSU 13.
2.) Memphis at Marshall Marshall had 178 yards and a 14-
0 lead after the first period against Wisconsin. Then the Herd fell
apart. Memphis played well in losing to Ole Miss and Rice.
Marshall 34 Memphis 24.
3.) North Carolina at Rutgers Scarlet Knights bounce back
against ACC foe. Rutgers 27 UNC 21.
4.) Kansas at USF Bulls at home rumble over Jay Hawks.
USF 31 Kansas 17.
5.) Georgia at South Carolina It would take a big turnaround
after Vandy for the Gamecocks to pull this off, even at home. The
Dawgs will prevail after a good fight. Georgia 35 South Carolina
20.
6.) Penn State at Syracuse This used to be a big game in the
East back when I was young. Now, it's a blow-out as the Orange is
probably suffering through the last season of a coach. Penn State
45 Syracuse 12.
7.) Virginia at UConn Two teams that are struggling. Uconn
17 UVa 13.
8.) Auburn at Mississippi State Tigers roll the Bulldogs.
Auburn 34 MSU 14.
9.) Michigan at Notre Dame Rodriguez won his first game
at Michigan with an upset over Miami, Ohio. His famed "Spread
Offense" put up 16 points! Notre Dame 31 Michigan 14.
10.) UT-Chattanooga at FSU Two straight Southern
Conference opponents. Come on Bobby. FSU 55 UTC 13.
; 11.) Wisconsin at Fresno State Bulldogs at home pass their
way to victory. Fresno State 33 Wisconsin 24.
12.) -Rice at Vanderbilt+- Vandy gets a challenge from the
Owls. Vandy 34 Rice 30.
13.) Western Kentucky at Alabama Tide rolls over the
Toppers. Alabama 45 WKU 17.
14.) Samford at Ole Miss Rebels should beat Bobby
Bowden's old school. Ole Miss 38 Samford 13.
15.) Arkansas at Texas Old SWC Game. Texas 41 Arkansas
17.
16.) Atlanta at Tampa Bucs get back to defending the Ray
Jay. Tampa 24 Atlanta 21.
1, 7.)Miami at Arizona Dolphins in a mild upset. Miami 27
Arizona 24.
S 18.) Pittsburgh at Cleveland Steelers love this old rivalry.
Pittsburgh 34 Cleveland 21.
19.) Indianapolis at Minneapolis Vikes in a stunner. Minn.
24 Indy 23.
20.) San Francisco at Seattle SeaHawks roll like a Seattle
fog. Seattle 31 San Fran 15.

Itis the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because
you can only do little-do what you can.

UNTITLED

Because you're a graduate
or have a college degree,
Does that seem to make you think

that you are more special than me?

Classroom lessons you learn
don't actually mean you're smart;
Compassion for others
only comes from the heart.

If hurting someone's feelings
makes you feel cool,
When life throws it back at you
you'll feel like a fool.

Picking out faults
of people around you,
Seems like you're insecure
or have nothing better to do.

God loves us equally
no matter our faults;
"Love thy neighbor"
it's something we're taught.
