STOPLIGHT GONE


3PR Sues County/Mosaic


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A local organization has chal-
lenged the county's right to
issue a Special Exception for
mining land east of the Peace
River.
People For Protecting Peace
River Inc., also known as 3PR,
filed suit in Hardee Circuit
Court on Sept. 19, asking for
"declaratory and injunctive re-
lief," from Hardee County and
Mosaic Fertilizer LLC.
In its 58-page lawsuit, 3PR
asks for damages and a judg-
ment that the Special Exception


permit does not adequately pro-
tect citizens or the environment.
It is inconsistent with eight ele-
ments of the county's Compre-
hensive Land Use Plan, says the
lawsuit.
It asks the court to prevent
the county from issuing its per-
mit and award costs to 3PR. It
also seeks an opportunity to
contest the $42 million eco-
nomic development agreement
between Mosaic and the county
A Second Challenge---
The county is also facing a
challenge from Lee and Sara-


sota counties, who are contest-
ing the state Department of En-
vironmental Protection's per-
mits to allow Mosaic to mine
nearly 7,800 acres of its 10,856-
acre South Fort Meade Mine
Extension into Hardee County
east of Peace River. It's part of
the 80,000 acres Mosaic owns
in Hardee County, about 20 per-
cent of the 400,000 acres in the
county.
SThe southern counties, in-
cluding Charlotte, say they
have a vested interest in the
health of the Peace River and its

By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
A free prescription card cov-
ering 58,000 prescriptions is
coming soon for Hardee County
residents.
The Coast2Coast Rx card has
discounts from one to 95 per-
cent on prescriptions and has no
age, health or income restric-
tions.
The Coast2Coast Rx card is
provided by Financial Market-
ing Concepts, Inc., of Ponte
.Vedra Beach. FMC.has been in
business since 1992 marketing
non-insurance benefits. It prof-
its from a fee included in the


discounted prescriptions that
does not raise the costs of pre-
scriptions.:
According to Coast2Coast Rx
card's website the card is avail-
able for al Hardee county resi-
dents without regard to income,
age or insurance coverage.
However, when filling .a pre-
scription a person must be at.
least 18 years-old to use the
card.
There is no membership fee,
enrollment form, or number of
times, to use the .card. Every
member of a family is allowed
use of the card; however,
Coast2Coast Rx card is not an


insurance card.
Residents cannot use their
insurance card and Coast2Coast
Rx card at the same time when
filling a prescription.
There are more than 45,000
pharmacies in the FMC net-
-work; including major pharma-
cy chains as well as indepen-
dent pharmacies in all 50 states.
Wauchula has four such phar-
macies: Wal-Mart, CVS, Winn-
Dixie and the new pharmacy,
Aum (located in the Wauchula
Plaza) and each will honor the
Coast2Coast Rx card.

Stoplights at Seventh Avenue and Main Street in Wauchula were removed Wednesday
morning. The lights did not meet current state standards and a lawsuit was threatened.
It was too expensive to upgrade the lights, so the decision was to replace them with
stop signs. When construction is completed, the east-west Main Street will be a
through street and north-south traffic will stop as they do in all the other Main Street
intersections.

Library Fines


Are 'Collected'


By MICHAEL KELLY
For The Herald-Advocate
People owing late fees to the
county library may want to pay
up, or else.
Library director Patty Lang
asked for and got permission
from the County Commission-
ers recently to turn over delin-
quent accounts to a collection
agency.
She also announced new
library hours, effective Sept. 29.
Then, the library will be open
Monday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.,
Tuesday 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.,
Wednesday and Thursdays
from 9 a.m. to 5 and Fridays 9
a.m. to 4 p.m.
The library will be closed
Oct. 13 for staff training.
Unique Management Service
will shortly be given the names
of 520 people owing more than
$25 in fines or fees.
Lang said that as of Aug. 13
there were $38,830.99 in out-
standing fines and fees owed to
the library.
The agency will charge the
county $8.95 for every success-


ful collection. The county will
not be charged for unsuccessful
accounts..
Lang said a 50 percent collec-
tion rate would bring in a total
of $3,256.
A total of 2,749 people owe
money to the library with an
average balance of $13.86. At
this time these people will stay
out of collections, but their
names could be turned over in
the future.
There are 356 books that are
currently overdue, 1,230 have
been checked out and never
returned and nine books have
been stolen or lost that were not
checked out.
New books cost the library an
average of $25 per book.
In July the library attracted
3,142 visitors and has 14,150
library cards issued. Cards are
free to county residents.
The library also checks out
videos, digital video disc, com-
pact disc, cassettes and pro-
vides computers with internet
access.


Don't Hang Up! Listen!


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
Pickup the phone; it's 911!
Reverse 911 is a computer
program that notifies residents,
of Hardee County of events
such as a missing child or crime
by sex offenders in their area;
Depending on the location
the Hardee County .Sheriff's
Office call residents or busi-
nesses of that area using their
normal phone numbers.
The Sheriff's Office gets
such phone numbers by geo-
coding, a system which locates
residents or businesses by their
physical address. Citizens will


be contacted depending on how
close they are to the situation.
Calls are made in the order of
the last four digits of a tele-
phone number. If an answering
machine picks up, then an auto-
mated message is left.

The Reverse 911 program
can make many phone calls per
hour, depending on the length
of the message. The system:
uses the Sheriff's Office phone
lines, called a line grabber, to
contact any persons in the des-
ignated area. If residents have
caller ID, then one of the num-
bers of the Sheriff's Office will


show.
The Hardee County Sheriff's
Office encourages citizens to
register their home, business, or
personal cell phone numbers in
order to receive calls. Phone
numbers are strictly confiden-
tial and kept on a hard drive
within the Sheriff's Office to
which only administrators have
access. Hardee County resi-
dents may register free online at
www.hardeeso.com or call 863-
773-0304 ext. 400.
This program has been in
design for about a year. There is
no cost to Hardee County resi-
dents.

watershed basin which drains.
into Charlotte Harbor and also
supplies water for the Manosdta
water district. The loss of wet-
lands could rob the estuary, says
those counties.
At its meeting last week, the
Hardee County Commission
approved the draft of a letter to
Lee and Sarasota counties,
questioning a sister cotinty
challenging development is
Hardee County. "We want to
make it perfectly and emphati-
cally clear that we accept and
understand the regulatory role
each of us plays in the develop-
ment approval process. If each
of us does our jobs appropriate-
ly and competently, the citizen-
ry of the region is protected by
our decisions," says the letter.
It says contesting the deci-
sion-making prerogative of
Hardee County would be the
same as it going over to those
counties to police the urbaniza-
tion, residential and industrial
development and its impact on
storm water drainage, sewage
or enormous amounts of imper-
vious surfaces.
"In our view, you would be
better served to use your finan-
cial resources to resolve your
own problems rather than use


them to create problems for
someone else . Phosphate is
San integral part of food produc-
. tion .. that allows you to have
your quality of life. Undue
restriction of food prQduction
will come back to haunt you.
"We respectfully urge you to
withdraw your challenges and
instead work collaboratively
with us and Mosaic to gain an
objective understanding of the
complexities of mining and the
cumulative impacts of all types
of developmentconcludes the
letter.
-The lysues
The Mosaic plan to extend its
Fort Meade Mine into Hardee
County began over a year ago,
first obtaining approval of a
Development of Regional Im-
pact from the Central Florida
Regional Planning Council.
Hearings on the county Special
Exemption, mining application,
Master Mining Plan and unit
plan began in March. There
have been hours of testimony
on clay settling dams, wildlife
protection, preservation of en-
vironmentally sensitive lands,
the quantity and quality of
water in the Peace River and its
tributaries, conservation ease-
ments of wetlands and uplands,
creation of four lakes and many
other topics.
Various questions and dia-
logue continued meetings
through June and July, with a
final factor being separate pub-
lic hearings on Aug. 7 and 14 on
the economic mitigation
agreement to establish infra-
structure and provide incentives
for new and expanding busi-
nesses in the county, replacing
mining jobs that will eventually
end.
Of the money, $500,000 each
year will go directly to the
county's General Revenue Fund
and the balance of two $5 mil-
lion annual paymentsand eight
$4 million will go to the county
Industrial Development Author-
ity, which will develop projects
for it in conjunction with the
Economic Development Coun-
cil, Chamber of Commerce and
county and city economic
development offices. Regular
audits and performance reviews
will show that the money is


the average saving is 38 percent
annually on prescriptions.
Even if people have Medicare
Part D coverage, during the
"gap" they can use the card for
prescriptions that may not be
covered by their insurance.
Coast2Coast Rx card also cov-
ers some medication that is con-
sidered experimental by insur-
ance companies.
To register for a card, resi-
dents must provide their name
and a nine-digit identification
number. The number may be
any random number but it is
recommended that residents use


their phone number minus one
digit.
FMC complies with HIPAA
privacy regulations and ensures
that cardholder information will
remain confidential, not distrib-
uted to any third parties
The county offices, and each
pharmacy will have prescrip-
tion forms to complete. Resi-
dents can also print out a card
by accessing the Coast2Coast
Rx card's website. www.-
coast2coastrx.com/hardeefl.
The county will receive a
royalty of $.25 to $.50, depend-
ing on volume, for every pre-
scription filled.

The money can be used in
four categories; infrastructure,
development of ecotourism
opportunities along the Peace
River and its tributaries, alter-
native water supply options and
creation of economic develop-
ment catalysts to attract busi-
ness.
La;vsuit
3PR says its expert estimates
the economic damage to Hardee
County in the mining of 3 mil-
lion tons of phosphate per year
through 2020 will be much
greater because "the activity of
phosphate mining is a massive
increase in intensity of the use
of the land under the county's
Unified Land Development
Code. 3PR is an "aggrieved or
adversely affected party," it
says.

The lawsuit says a substantial
number of members of 3PR
own land in the vicinity of the
proposed mining. Their farm-
land will be dewatered, affect-,
ing agricultural interests, there
will be substantial diist dirt
and noise generated to disturb
the peaceful use of their homes,
a breach in one of the three clay

the homes and businesses, and
dewatering will affect the abili-
ty of 3PR members to use the
river for recreational purposes,
claims the lawsuit. It will also
reduce the property values of
their homes, continues the law-
suit.
The same argument is tsed in
all three portions of the lawsuit,
filed in behalf of 3PR by
Plantation attorney Brad

Flouride Varnish
For Children in
Hardee County
With the stroke of a brush,
Hardee County children under
the age of 3 can now have a flu-
oride varnish treatment provid-
ed by a dentist at the Hardee
County Health Department
painlessly.
The treatment is free to
Medicaid patients and costs
only $16 for self-pay clients
who qualify. To qualify, you
must be a Hardee County resi-
dent with no dental insurance
and have a household income
below 125 percent poverty
level.
The topical, painless fluoride
treatment allows a dentist to
paint a lasting smile within a
matter of five minutes. Since
the fluoride varnish is applied
directly to the child's teeth
less of the product is swal-
lowed, making it very safe for
children.
The fluoride varnish quickly
adheres to the teeth and is slow-
ly released to the tooth surface.
One hour after treatment, chil-
dren can rinse their mouth but
should not brush their teeth that
evening. The next morning,
children can resume their nor-
mal brushing routine.
Tooth decay is one of the
most common preventable dis-
eases in children. The main
benefits of the fluoride varnish
treatment are its ability to pre-
vent early decay and protect a
child's teetL.fxom future painful
problems such as cavities, fill-
ings and crowns.

Hardee cross country teams'
times.
Although they didn't win
at Highlands Hammock last
week, most of the Hardee'cross
country runners shortened their
times. The boys came in be-
hind Sebring and Walker Acad-
emy, with the girls losing to
Sebring.
More important to Coach
Don Trew was the improvement
in a week's time. from the Sept.
18 meet to the one last
Thursday, most of the runners
cut from one to five minutes off
their times. Continuing to do so
will put them in good stead
when the district run comes
around on Nov. 3.
For the Hardee boys, low
man on Thursday was again
Murad Ottallah, who finished
nearly a minute better than his
first outing. This time, however,
his best was only good for
fourth place.
Tony Martinez dropped near-
ly two minutes to finish at
23:29, while Juan Rodriguez
came in on his heels at 23:32.
Pablo Macias was next, down
1.06 from his first week and to
the tape at 23:33. Tony Galvan
cut 5.07 off his time to finish at
33:38.
Hardee girls also slashed
times. Brianna Aguilar lowered
her time 30 seconds to come to
the tape at 28:42. Guadalupe
Flores dropped her time to 3:27
to come in next at 29:55. Alma
Alvarez, who did not run the
first race of the year, came in
one second later, at 29:56.
Following along were Mes-
qua Fields, down nearly four
minutes; Nancy Conejo, down
4:22; and Daisy Escoto, up
slightly.
In the junior high race, Bran-
don Beatty was down almost
two minutes and Leah Cisneros
did not run.

State grants will allow the
north half of Florida Avenue to
also be repaved.
Director of Public Works J.R.
Prestridge told the Hardee
County Commission last week
that the state Department of
Transportation had taken the
unusual step of combining'
grants to allow the county to
complete the project.
Under a county contract,
Superior Asphalt Inc. was re-
cently completed the widening
and resurfacing of South
Florida Avenue from Carlton
Street to SR 64. Along with that
work, county crews also up-
graded shoulders, culverts and
drainage ditches.

The $1 million Emergency
Room renovations are just the
beginning
Tim Cook, chief financial
officer of Florida Hospital-
Heartland and Linda Adler, ad-
ministrator of Florida Hospital-
Wauchula, gave an annual
report to the Hardee County
Commission last week.
Cook has been CEO over all
three Florida-Heartland hospi-
tals (Lake Placid, Sebring and
Wauchula) for about a year, tak-
ing over when John Harding
assumed another position with-
in the Seventh Day Adventist
corporation which has hospitals
all over Florida and the nation.
Cook first summarized the
recent accomplishments, in-
cluding the nearly yearlong
construction project which cul-
minated in a ribbon cutting
Sept. 23 for the new Emergency
Room. The work increased that
unit from seven to 14 patient
beds, from a 4,000-square-foot
small corner of the hospital to
an 8,300-square-foot significant
layout.
There is a staff emergency
physician available 24 hours a
day. There is a separate 15-per-'
son ER waiting room, complete
with a television and children's
section, a triage (prioritizing
order of care) area and an open
central nurses station, which
includes cardiac monitoring
equipment. Marmoleum floor-
ing reduces noise levels.
The re-construction was com-
pleted with a combination of
grants from Peace River
Electric Cooperative Inc., the
state Office of Rural Health and
the Florida Hospital -Wau-
chula Foundation Board fund-
raising efforts supplementing
the hospital monies.
Also part of the current
upgrades are a new CAT scan-
ner which refines the images
and updated x-ray equipment
which will provide clearer
images. Both should be in place
by the end of the year, said
Cook.
Florida Hospital, which.
reopened the local hospital in
1995, has had other accom-
plishments this year. The Joint




county for the same project," he
added.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
sat as a zoning board and
approved a Special Exception
to allow a 195-foot monopole
wireless communication tower
and equipment shelter off SR
66 east of Johnston Road.
Approval had been recom-
mended by the county Planning
& Zoning Board.
approved an ordinance to
remove Class AA sludge from
the land spreading requirement
of other sludge products, such
as pellets, grandular and com-
post of A or B sludge. AA is
permitted for use on golf cours-
es, hospital and civic center
yards, etc.
approved 'an agreement,
with DeSoto County to accept'
its recyclables glass, plastic,
cardboard and aluminum--at the
Hardee County Landfill at no
cost to Hardee County. If there
is no market for plastic materi-
als, DeSoto County will have to
find an alternative site for these.
Appointed Paul Samuels
and Lory Durrance to the In-
dustrial Development Author-
ity. Durrance is already a mem-
ber of the Economic Develop-
ment Council and will just add
the other hat. Members of the
IDA are automatically members
of EDC.
approved write-off of the
Fire-Rescue 2005-06 debt of
$303,800.86. A collection
agency will still pursue pay-
ment of these, which average
between $30 and $600 apiece.
The commission also ap-
proved Hardee Fire-Rescue
changing its collection service
to piggyback off the city of
Oviedo's contract with Advanc-
ed Data Processing Inc.


iZ 7


Commission on Survey Accre-
ditation spent nearly four days
on site and awarded the hospital
stellar grades. "It's not that
often a Critical Access hospital
does so well," commented
Cook. Wauchula's unit is one of
only 11 rural Critical Access
hospitals in the state, a federal
designation that allows it to
obtain a higher rate of Medi-
care/Medicaid reimbursement.
About a year ago, the hospital
renovated its physician center
across Carlton Avenue to the
north and has two family prac-
tice physicians available,
Joseph Toulouse and Kathleen
Welch Wilson.
Hardee's hospital is one of
the few with a hospitalist pro-
gram. That is an on-site physi-
cian continuously there to pro-
vide continuity of care in con-
junction with the patient's own
physician. The hospitalist over-
sees the 25-bed hospital, which
can be medical or transitional
care, including a post-acute
rehabilitation unit for therapy
after a stroke, heart attack or
surgery such as a hip or knee
replacement.
Finally, a Women's Wellness
program provides on-site ser-


vices one-to-two days a week
and hopes to expand services
here.
Coming up in the next few
months are several service
expansions, including a sleep
center to evaluate apnea and
other sleep conditions, and a
psychiatric unit
On Oct. 22, state Sen. J.D.
Alexander will be on hand to
lead a community health sum-
mit with hospital, business and
community leaders. There will
be barbecue and music as well.
Having outlined new and
coming changes, Cook dis-
cussed the financial aspects of
the hospital and what would be
needed to plan construction and
operation of a new facility on
the 17.4-acre hospital-owned
property at REA and Heard
Bridge roads. Plans for that
two-story hospital complex
(including physician offices)
are on hold until there is enough
demonstrated need to support it.
Cook compared the inpatient
and ER visits for 2006, 2007
and to date for 2008, which are
running about the same, possi-
bly a bit more self-pay due to
the current economic crisis.

man wondered if the Primary
Care Challenge, diabetes and
chronic care grants had taken'
some of the work load off the,
hospital ER.
Adler said she works with the
Hardee County Health TAsk
Force on these grant opportuni-
ties. But, said Cook, much of
the ER load is after hours. If the
physician office changed some
of their hours, it would help
more, he said.
Bill Lambert, county Eco-
nomic Development director,
said having a 24-hour access
hospital in Wauchula is impor-
tant when he talks with pro-
spective businesses. "What dia-
logue will it take to get the new
hospital here?"
Cook said demographics
would be the difference. "Right
now the planning is tied to mar-
ket trends. It's absolutely in the
master market plan, when the
amount of patients will warrant
it." Bad debt and charity care
still takes a major toll on the
financial, situation, he
explained. The county's maxi-
mum $500,000 indigent care
contribution (for county resi-
dents only) has been a big help,
he added.

Leon Schrader of Wauchula passed away Monday night in
Texas while being treated for a lingering illness. He was the owner
of Pal's Pools and former Hardee High head basketball coach and
School Board member. Tentatively, visitation will be Friday
evening and services on Saturday check with Robarts Funeral
Home for more information.
There will be a MethFree informative meeting Monday, Oct.
13, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Lake Dale Baptist Church at 3102 Heard
Bridge Road in Wauchula. Refreshments will be served.
This is for anyone who has been affected by this drug moth-
ers, wives, husbands, dads, young people and grandparents. A
motto is "The high is a lie." We can all make a difference, turning
"our pain into God's gain for the glory of God," reported one lady
whose life has been affected by meth.
Rick Justice, president of First National Bank of Wauchula,
said "short-sightedness and greed" were factors in the nation's
financial markets getting into trouble and needing a bailout by the
federal government.
"I generally dislike the idea of the government bailing out pri-
vate companies, but this was the best decision for the American
people as a whole. This helps protect the nation's credit rating on
the world market."
In the 1980s the rule of borrowing money for a home was 28
percent of the family's gross income could go toward the house -
mortgage payment, taxes and insurance included.
Then there was a 36 percent guideline, said Justice,which
could include house payment, taxes, insurance, car loan and credit
card payments.
"Over time standards became more lenient. This allowed more
home ownership but increased the risk of foreclosure."
Justice said life events such as major illness, loss of job or
divorce can put people into financial jeopardy.
A home is generally a family's most prized material posses-
sion,and historically a lending institution financed 80 percent of the
home's value at a long-term fixed interest rate loan. Some mort-
gage loans in recent years involved no down payment.
Justice said a lack of oversight by Congress, Fannie Mae,
Freddie Mac, and HUD contributed to the mortgages problem.
"Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac made mortgage loans without veri-
fying income of the loan applicants."
Rest Haven has 38 beds and about 19 clients, elderly folks who
pay about $1,000 a month. The county commission provides about
$90,000 of support for the facility annually, including $50,000 in
cash.
A sign on the wall in Bowling Green farmer Jimmy Parker's
office says, "All the people who could run the world are busy farm-
ing."
Bill Crews, chairman of Wauchula State Bank, when asked
about advise for the current U.S. economic situation as regards to
Hardee County said, "This is a time to hunker down and watch
your assets. It is not a time to sell the good stuff that has depreci-
ated (referring to stocks, bonds and mutual funds).
"People need to watch their personal finances and do not over
obligate. Do not use all your cash to pay down debt."
Crews said this is a buyers market for houses and real estate
such as land. No one knows where the bottom is, but values have
fallen in Florida by 30 to 40 percent. They have fallen more on the
coast and in highly populated areas.
"The appraisers are appraising Hardee County properties at 30

percent less than the peak real estate prices of 2005-06. Our bank
had zero sub prime loan stuff. We were hesitant to loan money on
land that was doubling in price every six months. One customer
paid $10,000 an acre, borrowing $5,000 an acre, on land near 1-75.
He wanted to borrow $20,000 an acre. We refused but a large
regional bank appraised his property later at $40,000 an acre and
loaned him $20,000 an acre.
"The banks in this area are very well canitalized and well man-


aged. There is no problem with anybody's money in local banks.
The percent of past due loans in local banks is very, very small,"
said Crews.
The Hardee Wildcats made zero turnovers and had no punts
blocked Friday night in a 24-7 district win over Avon Park. Hardee
will travel to Lakewood Ranch in Manatee County this Friday
night.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats gave up
an opening touchdown and
came back to beat the district
rival Avon Park Red Devils on
Friday night.
The Wildcats dominated the
game, holding Avon Park to less
than 150 yards and the surprise
TD which started the game.
Hardee had 21 first downs,
while limiting the Red Devils to
just four.
Hardee travels this week to
Bradenton to play 5A Lake-
wood Ranch, a team which
gave Hardee a hard-fought bat-
tle in last year's 47-33 Hardee
win. Wide receiver Marcus
McNeal is back, along with sen-
ior quarterback Niko Macias
and his junior alternate Zack
Self. Junior fullback Steven
Birakis has led the team.
Although the Mustangs have
lost their first four games, they
were all against tough rivals.
Hardee will need to be on tar-
get for the Lakewood Ranch
game, not looking ahead to the
Oct. 10 Homecoming Game
against Sebring. The Home-
coming parade will be at 2:30
p.m. on its regular route.
The Hardee offense was
effective against Avon Park.
Junior quarterback Ezayi You-
youte took Offensive Player of
the Week honors with 26 carries
for 200 yards. Defensively, jun-
ior Tyler Alden led the team
with seven tackles and a pass
breakup. Kicker Martin Vega


was Special Teams Player with
a field goal, three PATs and two
tackles. Coming up from the JV,
Andy Hunt played lineman in
practice and won Scout Team
honors.
Overall, Hardee amassed 394
yards offense, while holding
Avon Park to 144 yards total,
mostly through the air. The Red
Devils had only 21 yards on the
ground.
For the Wildcats, Jake Mayer
had 23 carries for 105 yards and
one reception for 14 yards. His
and Kelsheem White with 14
carries for 51 yards, were aided
by Scott Donaldson's two re-
ceptions for 24 yards. The
offensive line of Nick Battles,
Skylar Alden, Jordan Baker,
Alex Lanier and Carlos Rami-
rez repeatedly made holes for
the running backs to slide
through.
Hardee won the coin toss and
deferred to the second half.
Virgil Cooper returned the ball
16 yards and the Red Devils
started at their own 36. Senior
quarterback Albert Moses con-
nected with a pass to Cooper in
the flat and he tore down the
sidelines for a 30-yard gain.
Avierre Connor and Teddy
Allen toted the football. Derrick
McKenzie caught one pass.
Avon Park was at Hardee's 20-
yard line. After a penalty on
Hardee moved the Red Devils
to the 10, Moses reached
McKenzie in the open and he
trotted into the end zone. The
Cleveland Nobles kick was

good. In less than three min-
utes, Avon Park had a 7-0 lead.
That was the Red Devils'
only success of the evening.
Hardee began its first series at
the 6-yard line and got as far as
the 39 before punting it'away.
Avon Park, in turn, began at its
19 and went backward, with
Nobles punting from his own
end zone.
Hardee started again at its 49.
Mayer and Youyoute alternated
carrying the ball, with Mayer
going for the final yard into the
end zone. With the Vega kick, it
was a tie game with just under
23 seconds left in the first peri-.
od.
Terrill Conner gave Avon.
Park good field position with a
36-yard runback before Vega
pushed him out of bounds.
Three plays later, Avon Park
punted, trapping Hardee at its
own 1-yard line.

Undaunted, Hardee started a
16-play drive that took the
Wildcats 95 yards. When the
'Cats were facing a fourth and
goal at the 4-yard line, Hardee
had to settle for a Vega field
goal. The series took well over
eight minutes.
Two minutes later, Avon Park
tried a 43-yard field goal, which
was blocked and at halftime, the
Wildcats still had a 10-7 advan-
tage.
Fortune turned around for
Hardee in the second half.
White took the opening kickoff
22 yards and the Wildcats were
off. Mayer dragged three or
four opposing players with him
as he pushed for yardage. You-
youte faked the handoff and cut
off tackle for good gains.
The teams exchanged punts,
with Hardee partly blocking
Avon Park's and getting the ball
at the Red Devil 29. A pass to

As the clock wound down,
Hardee was pressing toward the
Red Devil goal line, but took a
knee a couple of times to end
the game.
The teams met for prayer,
then went to their huddles.
Coach Tim Price lauded his
players for the no-turnover
game. "You should be proud of
where you came from and
where you are now. We didn't
lose any fumbles. It's hard
work, believing and expecting
to win. We play blue collar,
smash-mouth football and it
takes hard work. Come back
Monday ready to go."

Facts to Consider..........
The crime rate in Hardee County has soared to incredible levels. This
fact has been established by the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement's annual Uniform Crime Report and can be examined on
the FDLE website www.fdle.state.us. The UCR annual report for 2007
informs us that the crime rate in Hardee County is the
fifth highest crime rate among Florida's 67 counties.


Even though Hardee County has experienced an astonishing increase
in the crime rate, there was a 10.6% decrease in arrests.




If you believe we need change and want a professional
and efficient Sheriff's Office vote for Roger V. Clark.

Issue: Resthaven
In my opinion, Resthaven must continue to operate. If elected, I will
S continue to support Resthaven through financial and in-kind contributions
.: from the county budget, but with discipline. I think Resthaven can become
Sself-sustaining. I am told Resthaven has thirty-eight (38) beds with only
twenty (20) occupied. I suggest occupying fourteen (14) beds with out of
X county residents. This would leave four (4) beds for any spur of the
S moment occupants from Hardee County.
-I believe the Resthaven Trustees should do a better job of marketing in
and out of the county. There are local marketing professionals, who I believe,- would
volunteer their time to help the trustees in this endeavor.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

INSULTED? NO WAY!
You must decide to be offended. I admit that a rule remark
seems to be sudden and sudden, too, our reaction. But slow down
and you will become aware that there are steps in the process -
and you can actually move quickly and head off that angry
response.
In fact, all in a moment, you can call upon God for help
and receive it. You can even breathe a prayer for that other person
and turn the whole incident into a silent victory.
The secret is deciding in advance not to be offended! Here's
how to do this: Consider your condition when Christ found you.
Were you not helpless and hopeless, a slave of sin? And when you
were given new life, how much were you enriched?
"According as His divine power hath given unto us all things
that pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of Him
who hath called us to glory and virtue" (II Peter 1:3).
You were given the life of Christ and became a child of God
with all the rights and privileges thereof!
Now back to the matter of being insulted. Shouldn't somebody
lifted from ruin to royalty have extra forbearance for others?
Consider your King who suffered all manner of insult and disgrace
ending in the death on a cross. His last petition: "Forgive them,
Father, for they know not what they do."
We can decide to live that way too and with the help of our
Sovereign, we can actually do it!

Hardee boys golf lost a sud-
den death match last week, its
first loss since the beginning of
the season.
Earlier in the week, the Wild-
cats had a successful trip to The
Bluffs.
Meanwhile, Hardee' girls
came in third on Monday and
went to Lake Wales to play
Frostproof on Tuesday but were
rained out.
The boys team was at Pine-
crest to play Avon Park on
Tuesday, and host Lake Placid
today (Thursday) at Torrey
Oaks. There is the Heartland In-
vitational on Oct. 4 at Pinecrest
and a trip to The Bluffs on Oct.
7 to play DeSoto.
Hardee girls went to the
Bluffs Monday for a quad-meet
and don't play again until next
Monday, Oct. 6 when they go to
River Greens in Avon Park for
the last.quad-meet of the season
before the district tournament
Oct. 13.
The Wildcats started last
week with a trip to The Bluffs
to play DeSoto, coming home
on the winning end of a 155-
222 score. Senior Jake Crews
led the way with a pair of
birdies and a 37. Classmate Ben
Krause and soph Taylor Barlow
chipped in with 38s and a birdie
apiece. Daniel Miller came in
at 42 and Grayson Lambert
and Justin Bromley each had
46.
On Thursday, at Lake Wales,
scores were a bit different.
Hardee and Frostproof tied at
182 and Ridge Community
came in with a team score of
215. On a sudden death, Hardee
lost on the third hole.
Lambert had the best outing
of the day with a 41. Miller
came home-in 44 strokes,
Barlow at 46 and Cobb rounded


out the team scoring with 51.
Bromley and Justin Fones also
got out on the course.
For Hardee girls, Monday's
home match proved to be it for
the week. Avon Park had the
low score of 207, with DeSoto
at 216, Hardee at 250 and Lake
Placid without a team score


with only three players.
For the very young Hardee
team, soph Kara Norris had a
51, and was folloDed by soph
Lauren Moore, freshman Emma
Marshall and soph Ivette Cis-
neros. Soph Emily Williams has
been battling illness and did not
play.

A native Wauchulan and
Hardee High grad will soon
take one of the top positions at
his alma mater.
Todd Durden, of Wauchula,
was approved as the next assis-
tant principal at Hardee Senior
High School. After a transition
time, he will take the job when
current Vice-Principal Bill
Robinson retires at the end of
October.
Durden will work with
Principal Mike Wilkinson and
co-assistant principal Chris
Neff.
"It's an honor to work with
these two men. I'm looking for-
ward to the three of us working
together," said Durden, who
will share curriculum responsi-
bilities as well as duty roster,
bell schedules, extracurricular
activities and other duties. All
three step out before and after
school and between classes to
watch student activity.
"I love Hardee County,
always have. It has good fami-
lies and good values. Hardee
High has the best staff, dedicat-
ed and committed. I consider it
a blessing to be chosen and will
continue to work hard for our
staff and kids," said Durden.
Born and raised in Wauchula
by his parents, the late Elaine
Dickinson, and John Dickinson
of Englewood, Durden is mar-


Durden


ried to high school ESE teacher
Tess Durden. They are the par-
ents of Tanor, a sixth grader,
and Tori, who attends pre-
school at First Baptist Church.
His sister Amy Wilson is a
teacher at Bowling Green Ele-
mentary.
Durden began his career 18
years ago as a building trades
teacher at the high school. He
has been dean of students for
the past five years.
Nominated for the position
by Wilkinson, Durden was
approved at last week's School'
Board meeting. "I am proud we
can bring him aboard," com-
mented Wilkinson.
Durden replied. "I thank Mr.
Wilkinson for the recommenda-
tion. I am indeed blessed to
have been in the Hardee County
School system for these years.

Aiming for a 10-0 season, the
Hardee Junior High softball
team started with a pair of vic-
tories last week.
The girls were at home for
the first two games of the sea-
son. Monday, it was the first
time in several years that
Hardee has beaten Sebring
Middle School, stealing a 15-1
win. On Thursday, it was a visit
from Avon Park and a shutout
22-0 win in two-and-one-half
innings.
This week, Hardee is on the
road, going to Lake Placid on
Monday and to DeSoto today
(Thursday). Next week, it is a
visit Monday from Hill-Gustat,
followed by a Thursday visit to
Sebring. Games are at 5 p.m.
"I'm very pleased with our
start," said head coach Sharri
Knight. "I think our pitching
makes the difference. We'll take
one game at a time, but our goal
is to win all 10 games," she
added.
Pitching has, indeed, been
spectacular. Eighth grader
Kayla Knight had a dozen
strikeouts and seventh grader
Karlee Henderson has come on
in relief and continued with a
half dozen Ks in the two games.
Against Sebring, Knight
started on the mound. Sebring
was three up, three down in the
top of the first, while. Hardee
plated three runs, with a Knight
triple, followed by hits .and
walks to Kate Thomas, Danika
Briones, Henderson, Summer
Sisum and Brooke Knight. The
last three were left on base.
In inning two, Knight struck
out two of the three Sebring
batters. Hardee continued to
score, adding five runs by Addi-
son Aubry, Kayla Nichols,
Kayla Knight, Thomas and
Briones and again leaving the
bases loaded.
It was three up, three down,
for Sebring in the top of the
third. Infield flies cost Hardee
runs.
For inning four, Sebring got
on the board with its only run
on two hits. Hardee padded its
lead by seven runs, with Jessica
Harrison, Henderson, Brooke


Tyson, Sisum, Addison, Nich-
ols and Kayla Knight doing the
honors.
Sebring was unable to score
in the top of the fifth and
Hardee won on the 10-run
rule.
Thursday's game was even
more one-sided. Knight record-
ed six strikeouts, all called by
the officials. Henderson pitched
the third inning, with similar
results.
Hardee batted around three
times in the-first inning, as the
Avon Park pitcher had a hard
time finding the plate. Sixteen
runs scored. Hardee batters
Tyson and Henderson each cir-
cled the bases three times. Four
others each put a pair of scores
on the board. Aubry, Briones
and Ana Galvez each doubled.
After a three up, three down
Avon Park second stanza, Hard-
ee went back to bat, adding a
half dozen scores, by Thomas,
Katelyn Rowe, Jessica Harri-
son, Brooke Knight, Aubry and
Sisum.
Avon Park was struck out in
order in the top of the third and
the game was called on the time
limit.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well, Football Fans, it happens every year. There is a weekend
when conventional logic and predictability can be thrown to the
wind. The 85-scholarship limit has insured that these weekends
will continue and be more common.
This particular weekend has shaken up the 2008 polls and
should renew the debate for a playoff system. LSU won a National
Championship with 2 losses in 2007. 2008 could be a repeat. The
Oklahoma Sooners will now occ-. y the top spot in the polls. That
is a true tragedy. The Sooners have had the "experts" telling us they
are best team in college football too many times in this decade. Just
ask Kansas State in 2004, Boise State in 2006 and West Virginia in
2007 how invincible the Sooners were. The debate will go on for at
least as long as they are unbeaten.
Tim Tebow didn't get the needed yard on a 4th and 1 play that
could have won the game for the Gators. His stats are down from
his Heisman year too. Will this open the door for another player to
win the Heisman trophy in 2008? Pat White of West Virginia needs
411 more rushing yards to replace former Missouri QB Brad Smith
as the all-time rushing QB in college football history. These two
players are the best in college football but ESPN has neither in its
Heisman Watch. Sad when the top network for college sports is so
blind.
The ACC watched history as Duke broke into the winning side
for the first time in ages with a win over Virginia. Former Marshall
Head Coach Bobby Pruett came out of retirement to be the defen-
sive coordinator for Al Groh at UVA. Wonder if Bobby is realizing
how good retirement can be?
The USF Bulls seem to be the odds on favorite to win the Big
East in 2008. At 5-0 and a Top 10 ranking life is good in Tampa.
UConn seems to be the team they must beat to win. it all. The
Huskies lost their QB with a broken leg this week. A Notre Dame
transfer stepped in to help UConn defeat Louisville. The Huskies
may be all right in the end. Now, in my best Lee Corso imitation,
not so fast my friend. West Virginia is finding itself under a new
staff. Heavy losses on defense and Slaton, Schmidt and Reynaud
on offense have hindered the Mountaineers early. The defense has
now gone seven quarters without giving up a touchdown. All
American linebacker Reed Williams has returned to the lineup and
the maturation process is on fast forward. The offense has rushed
for over 300 yards in each of the last two games. Be warned USF,
the road to a Big East Title always runs through Morgantown. The
Bulls trip to West Virginia is Dec. 6. Yes, we all know how well
USF has played in cold weather.
Now for this week's Bill O' Fare ...
1.) Rutgers at West Virginia Mountaineers have turned the
corner while the Scarlet Knights miss Ray Rice more than care to
admit. WVU 33 Rutgers 17.
2.) FSU at Miami Once a major rivalry, now a contest of
ACC also-rans. Canes will be defending the home turf but will
1,000 fans make a difference? FSU 27 Miami 24.
3.) Cincinnati at Marshall Cincy will be starting a 4th
string QB. The Herd should rally at home to make it a 4-2 record
while sitting atop the CUSA East. Marshall 27 UC 17.
4.) Florida at Arkansas Hogs are waiting for Ryan Mallet
and ,2009. Gators take out Ole Miss frustration. Florida 41
Arkansas 13.
5.) Pitt at USF "If you can't go to college, you can always
go to Pitt". The Bulls will put a sunshine who6pin' on these
Panthers. USF 38 Pitt 14.
6.) Memphis at UAB Tigers should pass their way past the
Blazers from UAB while running sparingly. Memphis 35 UAB 14.
7.) Oregon State at Utah Can the Beavers do it again? On
the road? Utah 30 Oregon State 21.
8.) South Carolina at Mississippi The Rebels must main-
tain last week's momentum to beat Spurrier's boys. Mississippi 27
USC 17.
9.) Auburn at Vanderbilt Vandy at the Top of the SEC 5-0!
Would be a nide Win fdrthe Commodores but I'm not convinced
yet. Auburn 21 Vandy 13.
10.) Penn State at Purdue Jo Pa on a roll. Penn State 41
Purdue 13.
11.) SMU at UCF Knights struggling in 08. SMU 33 UCF
13.
12.) Illinois at Michigan ere is hoping for the best for the
Zooker. Illinois 26 Michigan 24.-
13.) UConn at North Carolina Huskies get a test for the
new QB. UConn 24 UNC 20.
14.) Kentucky at Alabama Is it UK's time to upset a big
boy? UK 31 Alabama 28.
15.) Texas at Colorado Buffs get herded up by the Horns.
Texas 43 Colorado 17.
16.) Tampa at Denver Bucs get it done despite the altitude.
Tampa 27 Denver 23.
17.) San Diego at Miami A running game and Chad
Pennington! Miami 34 San Diego 24.
18.) Pittsburgh at Jacksonville Nice to see Leftwich beat
Jags. Pittsburgh 31 Jax 21.
19.) Atlanta at Green Bay Brett who? Green Bay 33
Atlanta 20
20.) Indianapolis at Houston Steve Slaton running on the
Colts! Colts 28 Houston 23.


RESTORATION PROJECT
Chet was always talking about his 1933 Chevy restoration pro-
ject. Then he e-mailed pictures: "Thought you might want to see
the finished product Chet."
Wow, nice car!
With all his car talk, it's difficult to wedge my world in. I need
to e-mail him.
Chet, I do restoration also. Surprised? I found this 2000 model
in a trailer park east of here. Looks sound on the outside, but I
noticed a lot of inside damage. Her name is Samantha.
SMonday I drove to the trailer park. In a flurry, the regular kids
claimed their seats in my van. And a new child was buckling up.
"Samantha's going with us," Tyler said. "Samantha," I said. "Do
you know where we're going?" She formed the word best she
could: "Chuch." Yes, off to Monday night children's church.
Smiling at Samantha's eagerness, I could have driven away
with this precious package. I thought, "This is wrong." I was a
stranger and had never met her parents.
A child can sustain significant damage when she lacks nurtur-
ing, love and discipline. Six-year old attention-starved Samantha's
problems quickly surfaced.
Chet, the Old Testament closes with: "God will restore the
hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children
to their fathers ..."
"God will restore."
Great. Let God do all the dent-banging restoration. Well, we
Know that's not God's way. God asks us to partner with Him.
, Hey, Chet, let's take the '33 Chevy to the trailer park, give
some kids a ride. Maybe, you could talk to Samantha's dad. He
might listen to you. You've struggled. God restored you with His
Jesus plan. Actually, He's continually fine tuning you. Me, too.
SStill, God allows us on His restoration team. And He's looking
for more help.
Are you available?

HUG A MUGGER?
Nobody likes to hear about somebody being mugged. Not only
do we feel sorry for the victim, but since "it could be me," it's a
frightening feeling, too.
None of us ever put ourselves in the mugger's shoes. But that's
exactly what did happen.
Julio Diaz is a 31-year-old social worker who lives in the
Bronx, New York. One night last winter, as he left the subway and
headed for the exit, a teenage boy walked toward him, pulling out
a knife.
In an account of the incident that was reported on National
Public Radio, Diaz said that he simply handed over his wallet.
Then, as the teenager started to walk away, Diaz did something
unusual, if not downright risky. He said, "Wait a minute. If you're
going to be robbing people for the rest of the night, you might as
well take my coat to keep you warm."
When the young man asked, "Why are you doing this?" Diaz
replied, "If you're willing to risk your freedom for a few'dollars,
then I guess you must really need the money. All I wanted to do
was get dinner, and if you want to join me, you're more than wel-
come."
Then Diaz took the boy to a diner where he was a regular and
the two of them ordered dinner.
While they ate, the manager, waiters and dishwasher dropped
by to say "hello" to Diaz. The boy was stunned by the warm recep-
tion. "You're even nice to the dishwasher," he said.
"Haven't you been taught you should be nice to everybody?"
asked Diaz.
"Yeah," he answered. "But I didn't think people actually
behaved that way."
When Diaz questioned him about what he wanted out of life,
the boy wouldn't or couldn't answer. He just sat there look-
ing sad.
Finally, when the check came, Diaz said, "I guess you're going
to have to pay for this bill because you have my money. If you give
me my wallet back, I'll gladly treat you." After paying for their
meal, Diaz gave the kid $20. Then he asked for something in
return: the knife. He got it.
The two left the diner and went their separate ways. Later Diaz
said simply, "If you treat people right, you can only hope that they
treat you right. It's as simple as it gets in this complicated world."
I don't know about you, but I don't think I could have done
what Julio Diaz did that night.
It's true that I'm a middle-aged woman and the danger might
be greater, yet I think there's more to it than that. There's some-
thing special about Julio Diaz, and we need more people like him.

Spoke at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) meeting recent-
ly in support of proposed Con-
stitutional Amendment 4.
During the FWC's meeting in
Jacksonville, Fowler represent-
ed a coalition of about 70 con-
servation and outdoor recre-
ation groups, pushing for pas-
sage of the amendment that
would provide incentives for
landowners who conserve their
property for wildlife habitat.
Earlier this week, Fowler
teamed up with the Florida
Wildlife Federation, the Nature
Conservancy, Audubon of
Florida and the Florida
Chamber of Commerce at a
press conference in Tallahassee
to draw attention to the pro-
posed amendment and 'urge
support for it among voters.
The FWC's seven-member
board of Commissioners unani-
mously passed a resolution in
June, expressing support for the
proposed amendment.
The amendment, to appear on
the general election ballot in
November, would encourage
landowners to set aside land for
conservation easements or prac-

THURSDAY
That is why God blessed
him. He made sure that jus-
tice and help were given to
poor and needy and every-
thing went well for him. "Isn't
that what it means to know
Me?" asks the Lord.
Jeremiah 22:15b-16 (NLT)
FRIDAY
Don't you see that you can't
live however you please,
squandering what God paid
such a high price for? The
physical part of you is not
some piece of property
belonging to the spiritual
part of you. God owns the
whole works. So let people
see God in and through your
body.
I Corinthians 6:119-20 (ME)
SATURDAY
Sing to the Lord a new song,
for He has done marvelous
things. His right hand and
His holy arm have worked
salvation for Him. The Lord
has made His salvation
known and revealed His
righteousness to all nations.
Psalm 98:1-2 (NIV)
SUNDAY
But you, O man of God,
must shun all evil and pur-
sue justice, piety, fidelity,
love, fortitude and gentle-
ness. Run the great race of
faith and take hold of eternal
life.
ITimothy 6:11-12a (NEB)
MONDAY
Good people can look for-
ward to a bright future, but
the future of the wicked is
like a flame going out ..
Money that comes easily
disappears quickly, but
money that is gathered little
by little will grow.
Proverbs 13:9,11 (NCV)
TUESDAY
Jesus said, "Now I am giving
you a new command-love
one another. Just as I have
loved you, you must love
one another. This is how all
men will know that you are
My disciples, because you
have such love for one
another."
John 13:34-35 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
A wise man's heart leads
him to do right, and a fool's
heart leads him to do evil....
It is pleasant to listen to wise
words, but a fool's speech
brings him to ruin.
Ecclesiastes 10:2,12 (TLB)

,FROM

THE
SOWER

Smusr.neanit
The difference between
gossip and news is whether
you hear it or tell it.
There's a woman who has a
keen sense of rumor. She's on
spiking .term with everyone.
One day she was heard to say,
"I won't go into all the details.
In fact, I've:already told you
more than Iheard myself."
Gossips they can change
an earful into a mouthful, and
theyset on fire every building
they enter.
There are three types of
gossips:
The vest-button type -
always popping off.
The vacuum cleaner type -
always picking up dirt.
The liniment type -
always rubbing it in.
But the Living Bible says,
"Don't gossip.


A t the bottom of the
Mountain the path is
only slightly Inclined,
polka-dotted with wildflowers and
carpeted In velvet moss. As you
ascend, the terrain is more
challenging, abundant with
boulders made slippery by
mountain streams. Breathing is
more difficult, it is tempting to
turn back..... but the mountaintop
beckons, daring you to continue.
Finally, you can seethe'Summit
in the distance. The nearly
vertical rock face Is daunting; it
will test your faith in your gear
and your guide. Ydu might pray
that both will pass the test.
Your heart pounds with
exhaustion and exhilaration as you
finally reach the top. Conquering
the challenge, you thank God you
made Itt It feels as It.you have
climbed all the way to heaven.
This week begin your climb
toward heaven at your house of
worship. With God as your guide
Your steps are secure.

COURTESY PHOTOS
On Sunday, Sept. 22, New Hope Baptist Church had an
unusual baby dedication, with nine babies. The service
was unique because three sets of twins were included in
the dedication. It took a collage to get them all in the pic-
ture. In top row, (from left) are parents Kyle and Michelle
Knight and twins Coy Lane and Colton Andrew; parents
Lance and Jamie Howell with with twins Callie Elizabeth
and Lanie Cate and big brother Colton; and parents Ryan
and Amanda Abbott and son Thomas Lane. In bottom row
are parents Binky and Michelle Graham and son Cooper
Anderson; parents Adam and Samantha Fenton with
twins Nathan Levi and Nathaniel Laadan; and parents
Roscoe and Debra Hilliard and son Austin Addison.


Overfertilized plants may be beautiful but are otherwise use-
less, like people whose energies are devoted so completely to
their appearance that there is no other development.

Help

Hurricane

Victims
A local church continues to
head up Operation Compassion,
a ministry of blessing for
Hurricane Ike victims in Texas
and Louisiana.
The Cutting Edge ministries -
of Faith Temple Ministries
Church is collecting funds to
get supplies to these victims,
quickly. It costs $2,500 to set a
semi-truck load of supplies and
products to the waiting needy,
many of whom remain in shel-
ters unable to get back to their
homes.
Clubs, groups, churches, in-
dividuals can drop off funds at
Manley & Associates, 203 S.
Seventh Ave., Wauchula or send
them to Cutting Edge Ministries
Inc., P.O. Box 1640, Wauchula,
FL 33873.

,No Duck

Blinds On

Four Lakes
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has passed a new rule
prohibiting anyone from hunt-
ing in or near a permanent duck
blind on four Tallahassee area
lakes.
The lakes are Miccosukee,
Iamonia, Carr and Jackson.
The rule says no one may
hunt ducks, geese, mergansers
or coots within 30 yards of a
permanent blind or anything
that violates Florida Statutes
prohibiting unauthorized con-
struction on state lands.
It defines a permanent blind
as anything that provides shel-
ter, cover or concealment for a
hunter but does not include any
rooted vegetation.
Temporary blinds, used only
while the hunter is present, also
are not included.
The FWC took action to ban
waterfowl hunting from perma-
nent blinds on the four lakes as
a result of continuing conflict
between the people who build
them and claim ownership of
sovereign state lands and others
who use the same area.
In addition, FWC officials
say constructing the blinds in
sovereign waters without per-
mits is a violation of existing
Florida Statutes.


Teens Play 5th Quarter


ty KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
SNew Hope Baptist Church
holds 5th Quarter after every
Hardee Wilfcat Wlip.ngame.
From 10 to 11:30 p.m., 5th
Quarter provides students with
alternative Friday night activi-
ties and maintains a good, clean'
atmosphere. Upon arrival, the
event is opened with a prayer
then students are free to choose
which activities they would like
to do. Around 11:15 youth min-
isters provide a 5-to-10-minute
devotional and prayer and after-
wards everyone is asked to help
clean up.
There are many types of
activities, like softball, tennis,
horse shoes, sand volleyball
and tetherball to keep students
occupied after a football game.
Refreshments are provided
and each week there is different
theme. For the preseason home
game the theme was "Ice
Cream Social" and students
were served ice cream sundaes
as well as soda and chips.
Several youth ministers, as
well as parents, provide plenty
of supervision over the 60 to 70
students that attend 5th Quarter.
Ministers are from Wauchula
First Baptist, Bowling Green
First Baptist, New Vision
Worship Center, First Christian
Church, Florida's First
Assembly, Celebration and
New Hope.
It is open to everyone who
wishes to come and was created


by these youth ministers of
local churches collectively
known as "One Student Minis-
tries." They created 5th Quarter


"The Children of Hardee County Are Our i

- It's Time to Put Them First


because of their concern of stu-
dents "jumping churches,"
going from church to church.
The result, youth ministers
came together and created a
united program for all students
in Hardee County.


5th Quarter Dates & Times
Friday, Oct.10 10-11:30 p.m.
Friday, Oct. 31 10-11:30 p.m.

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.

Dr. Leffie Carlton Jr. Inducted


Into A
Leffie M. Carlton Jr., a sixth
generation Floridian, was born
in Wauchula July 28, 1918, to a
pioneer family. He attended
Hardee County schools and
graduated from Wauchula High
School in 1936 where he served
as Senior Class president.
In 1993 he was inducted into
the Hardee County Schools
Hall of Fame.
He attended Stetson Univer-
sity for two years where he was
sophomore class president. In
1956 he was honored to receive
the distinguished service award
from Stetson University.
He transferred to Duke
University to complete his
undergraduate studies before
entering Duke Medical College
and graduated from medical
school in 1942.
After graduation he served
his surgical internship at the
University of Chicago, fol-
lowed by his residency in-vas-
cular surgery. While at the
University of Chicago he was
associated with leaders in the
field of surgery being inducted
into the society of Sigma Xi for
his research and writings in the
field.
In 1943 he married Ellen


Lppaloosa
(Lynn) Remensnyder and had
three sons, Dr. Leffie M.
Carlton III, a Tampa urologist;
C. Dennis Carlton, a real estate
broker, cattle and citrus grower;
and Leland F. Carlton, real
estate and citrus.
After entering military ser-
vice in 1945 he was assigned to
Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in
Denver and later to Bruns
General Hospital in Santa Fe,
N.M., as chief of chest surgery.
Bruns was one of the five chest
wound treatment centers for
returning soldiers.
Following his military ser-
vice, he returned to Tampa
where he still resides. In Tampa
he as associated with his uncle
Dr. Leland F. Carlton until
Leland's death in 1950. In his
practice Leffie was a pioneer in
thoracic surgery in southwest
Florida and along with Richard
G. Connar, M.D. he initiated
cardio vascular surgery for the
Tampa.Bay area.
He was active in the
Hillsborough County Medical
Association and was chief of
staff of Tampa General Hos-
pital. In 1953 he was elected
president of the Florida Tuber-


Heres information that may
save your life.
If you or someone you know
has a constant cough or what's
sometimes referred to as
"smoker's cough," you or that
person may be at risk for
COPD, a serious lung disease
that over time makes it hard to
breathe.
Other symptoms include
feeling like you can't breathe or
can't catch your breath. You
might get short of breath doing
simple activities you used to be
able to do, like climb a short
flight of stairs or walk to the
mailbox. It's also more common
among current and former
smokers.
More than 12 million
Americans are currently diag-
nosed with COPD and an addi-
tional 12 million may have the
disease and not even know it,
according to the National Heart,
Lung, and Blood Institute
(NHLBI).
In fact, COPD is the fourth-
leading cause of death in the
U.S., claiming 120,000 lives
each year. Yet few people have
ever heard of it, let alone know
what it is.
With COPD, the airways of
the lungs are narrowed, making
it hard to get air out and causing
an "out of breath" feeling.
. Most people with COPD are
over 40 with a history of smok-
ing or long-term exposure to
fumes or pollutants in the envi-
ronment. In some cases, COPD
has a genetic cause.
"The first step' toward better
Breathing is recognizing the
symptoms and getting an accu-
rate diagnosis.
A simple breathing test
called spirometry can bedone
riglt in your doctor's office to
determine if you have COPD,"
said James P. Kiley, Ph.D., of
NHLBI.
The test involves breathing
out as hard and fast as you can


into a tube connected to a
machine that measures your
lung function.
If you are diagnosed with
COPD, there is hope. Many
treatments are available to
reduce symptoms, improve
breathing and help you get back
to doing more of what you used
to do.

culosis and Health Association,
the forerunner of the Florida
Lung Association.
He was associate professor of
surgery at the University of
South Florida and in that capac-
ity taught surgical residents,
being twice elected by the resi-
dents as their outstanding in-
structor, an honor he highly
prized. He was a member of the
American College of Surgeons,
American Board of Surgery,
American Society of Abdomin-
al Surgery, Southwestern Surgi-
cal Congress, Trudeau Society
American College of Chest
Physicians, American Medical
Association, Florida Medical
Association and Hillsborough
County Medical Association.
After 43 years of active prac-
tice he retired on July 1, 1990.
One his passions was the
Appaloosa horse. This past July
on his 90th birthday he was
inducted into the Appaloosa
Race Horse Hall of Fame in
Moscow, Idaho, because of his
contribution to the Appaloosa
breed. The awards event took
place at the 61st National
Appaloosa Horseshow in Jack-
son, Miss., in July.
Dr. Carlton's horses raced in
all parts of the country from
Florida all the way to Califor-
nia. With Appaloosa stallion
Time Flies he built a breeding
program at Ada Stallion in
Oklahoma, which produced
multiple stakes and medallion
winners.
Yet Time Flies was a race
horse in his own right. Besides
his world wide futurity win he
racked up a number of wins for
lifetime earnings of over
$97,000. Two of his most mem-
orable would be the stallions
win of the Ren Rlades Derby
trial heat by 10 lengths, wnich
set an ApHC record for 5 fur-
longs and his victory by 3
lengths in the Ben Blades
Derby finals. Both races were
held at the famous Arlington
Park near Chicago, Ill.
Dr. Carlton was a leading
Appaloosa breeder for nearly
20 years. In 1984, 1986 and
1987 he was the leading breed-
er of Appaloosa race horses in
the United States.


He remains active in the
family cattle and citrus business
spending time with his children,
grandchildren and great-grand-
children .. and as much time
as possible in Hardee County at
the family ranch.

Eventide ...

The sun tumbles over

Earth's edge,

Leaving coral-colored clouds

As souvenirs.

Take a breath!

Inhale this sight.

Day is surrendering to night.

Suddenly a noisy clattering

Announces a congregation

Of blackbirds.

Night's curtain is covering remnants

Of the day ... as

The birds swoop and soar from view,

Painting an ebony streak across

The sky's rouged cheek.

School Board Adopts


New Investment Plan


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
What started as an effort to
meet 1RS regulations may
prove a benefit to school
employees.
In 2007, the Internal Revenue
Service set new rules to hold
school boards and other public
employers more accountable
for the operation of the 403 (b)
or tax-sheltered retirement
investment plans offered to
their employees.
During a workshop before the
regular Board meeting, Person-
nel Director Gary Moore pre-
sented the model plan recom-
mended by and Independent
Benefits Council representing
the Florida associations of
school administrators, district
school superintendents, school
boards and educational staffs.
The new plan uses only ven-


dors who commit to several
stringent requirements on sales
and service. After a transition
time, it will become effective
Nov. 1.
The approved companies are
AIG (VALIC), AXA, American
Century,.Waddell &.Reed, Plan-
Member Financial Corp., ING,
LSW and Suncoast School
Federal Credit Union. Each
offers a variety of products,
including fixed interest or vari-
able annuities, load-based or
no-load mutual funds. In all,
there are 600 high-quality
investment options.
Plans range from a high level
of personal service to a middle
ground of service and pricing to
a low/no-service approach with
rock bottom pricing. The
statewide reduction in pricing
will benefit career employees,
said the Moore presentation.
Later, during the regular

The Hardee Lady Wildcat
volleyball team dropped a pair
of matches last week.
The girls battle themselves as
much as their opponents, hav-
ing the opportunity to win, but
not able to capitalize on it.
They will have the chance to
re-verse that this week with a
trip to Braden River on Tuesday
for a varsity-only encounter and
home matches this evening
(Thursday) against district rival
Avon Park. The junior varsity
plays at 6 p.m. and the varsity
about 7:15. On Saturday the
junior varsity are in a tourna-
ment at Bartow, while the varsi-
ty is in a Friday-Saturday tour-
nament at Lakeland.
Next week, Hardee plays at
Sarasota Booker on Tuesday
and hosts a varsity-only match
against Palmetto at 7 p.m. on
Thursday.
SHardee, unfortunately, started
last week against top-seed
DeSoto which has four-year
dominant player Brittany Muse
and several other three- or four-
year players. Muse led her team
in its 25-3, 25-10, 25-13 win
over Hardee.
"The girls did not play well. I
thought they could have done
better against DeSoto," said
coach Ken Leupold.
Hardee came home to play
Fort Meade last Thursday. The
Lady Miners opened served in
game one, with Angel Mitchell
getting, three points. Hardee's
Yesenia Vargas made it 2-3,


only to have Fort Meade up the
lead to 5-3.
When soph Eryn Mahoney
came up to serve, Hardee
momentum changed. She was
able to knot the game at 5-5. It
was tied again at 7-7, 8-8, 9-9
and 10-10. Fort Meade got a
couple of leads behind the serv-
ing of Lolitha Jones and
Mitchell.
With Vargas serving, Hardee
retied the game at 17-17 and
forged in front 18-17. After a
Lady Miner time-out, Vargas
continued to get her serves in
until Hardee led 22-17.
Although the teams traded
points again, Hardee prevailed
25-20.
It was similar in the next
three games, except Hardee was
not able to hold a lead and grad-
ually succumbed to Fort
Meade. There were several
early ties in game two and no
more than a two- or three-point
difference, until Iryisha Graham
and Christi Strazier picked up
five service points apiece to
give the Lady Miners a 25-17
win.
In game three, the last tie was
at 10-10. Mitchell put her team
ahead with a five-point run.
Despite Mahoney's efforts,
which narrowed the score to 17-
16, Jones came on to put the
game out of reach for Fort
Meade, which won 25-20.
Hardee did not want to quit
and stayed with Fort Meade in
game four. The game was tied
12 times, the last at 24-24.
Amanda Kunberger served the


final Fort Meade points for the
26-24 game and match.win.
"In the second game, we
missed six serves in a row. We
gave them a break and they
took it. We can't win that way,"
commented disappointed Coach
Leupold.
Meanwhile the Hardee JV
worked hard at DeSoto, coming
home on the short end of 25-18
and 25-15 scores in the best of
three series.
They did better on Thursday
against Fort Meade, winning in
straight sets. Hardee won the
first game 25-22 and went on to
win the second 25-17.
For Hardee, Summer Palmer
had eight service points in the
first game. Kaila White added
five and Hannah Jacobs four.
Savanna Munz and Tamara
Nolan each had five service
points for Fort Meade.
In game two, it was White
with nine service points, Palmer
with seven and Deserea New-
comb with four. Nolan led Fort
Meade with six service points.
"Tonight we turned it around.
We got all our serves in but six.
We are passing better, three
times better. If we can play with
energy, we do well. If we stop
talking to each other, we lose
energy and don't do well," said
JV coach Jon Leupold.
He noted White and Palmer
served really well. Setters
Meghan Graham and Palmer
were doing well getting the ball
to hitters Maria Anselmo,
Sabrina Hernandez and Sarah

Fish Busters
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


FISHING A FUN, HEALTHY TRADITION
Freshwater fishing is one of the many outdoor recreational
activities encouraged by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC).
The FWC views outdoor recreation as a tremendously benefi-
cial opportunity that should be available to all residents.and visi-
tors, and it strives to provide quality fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.
Cheryl Charles, president of the Children and Nature Network,
points out, "People throughout the world are increasingly connect-
ed by a resonance and passion, to create a new common sense for
the good health of children today and generations to come."
Dr. Andrew Lepp, assistant professor of recreation, park and
tourism management at Kent State, said the benefits from outdoor
recreation are varied and plentiful. Outdoor recreation has psycho-
logical benefits, including the prevention or reduction of stress and
improved self-esteem, confidence and creativity.
Lepp also.contends it adds to spiritual growth and leads to an
increased sense of exhilaration, adventure and challenge from life.
Getting outside provides physical benefits, such as aerobic, cardio-
vascular and muscular fitness, as well as improved functioning of
the immune system.
It even offers.benefits for the social.life. The great outdoors .
affords social benefits, such as bonding with like-minded people
who also enjoy outdoor activities, and feeling an increased pride in
your community and.nation.
The economy benefits from all of this activity as well. Outdoor
recreation creates job opportunities for others, which leads to eco-
nomic growth. Preservation of the natural areas needed for outdoor
recreation increases property values. The workplace wins because
people who regularly participate in outdoor recreation tend to be
more productive at work, Lepp said.
The list continues with positive outcomes for the environment.
People .who participate in outdoors activities usually have
increased environmental awareness. This awareness translates to
increased involvement in environmental issues.
Specific activities such as fishing can add to the enthusiasm

and provide a fun challenge to become increasingly skillful. In,
Florida, the abundance of natural waters (7,700 named lakes,
12,000 miles of fishable rivers and canals) means the opportunity
is available to everyone. From digging worms and making your
own cane pole, to casting a lure, you develop a connection with
nature that comes naturally and has been an American tradition
since long before Mark Twain's tales of the adventurous Huck
Finn.
Every year the FWC works with the Florida Disabled Outdoor
Association at its Sportsability event, and this year we joined them
at the Family Caf6 event in Orlando. These opportunities reinforce
the pure fun of experiencing nature, and we redouble our commit-
ment to making fishing accessible for everyone.
Clay Dyer a professional bass fisherman who was born


without lower legs/ no arm on the left and a partially developed
arm on the right -Jinspired hundreds of individuals with physical
and mental challenges during his motivational presentation at the
Family Caf6 event. Clay is a hero and inspiration to virtually every-
one he touches with his life story, which he calls "The View from
Down Here is Just Fine," He is also a spokesperson for the
C.A.S.T. for kids program.
The FWC is doing its part by teaching kids to fish, sponsoring
Becoming an Outd rs-Woman events, helping create bank-fishing
access and building accessible boat ramps, courtesy docks and fish-
ing piers. Most importantly, the FWC is dedicated to conserving
and enhancing fisher, habitat and fish populations for everyone.
We invite you to gt outdoors and take someone with you, so
you can enjoy all the benefits of getting back to nature.

FIRE RESCUE VISIT


TALKING FINGERS


COURTESY PHOTOS
Hardee County Fire Rescue squad paid a visit to second graders at Zolfo Springs
Elementary School on Sept. 12. After students read their weekly story about a fire res-
cue, they were able to sit in both a fire truck and ambulance, use a fire hose and see
the '3aws of Life" in action. Lane Purser (top photo) sits shotgun in a fire truck.
Michaela Klein (middle) felt what it was like to use the fire hose. Jason Hearns (below)
got his chance to spray water from the fire hose.

As parents prepare for the
back-to-school season, packing
school lunches such as the tra-
ditional peanut butter and jelly
sandwich is a great way to stick
to the family budget and satisfy
even the pickiest eaters.
A recent survey conducted
by Kelton Research on behalf
of The J.M. Smucker Company
found a variety of ways adults
prefer to eat their sandwiches
made with peanut butter-69 per-
cent of consumers prefer to use
creamy peanut butter while 36
percent like their sandwiches
toasted.
However, for the past six
years, thousands of kid chefs
from across the country have
been able to think outside the
"lunch box" and create butterfly
pancakes, lettuce wraps and
even a "Monstwich" using Jif(r)
peanut butter and their own
imagination to earn scholarship
funds.
From August 4 through
November 14, 2008, the makers
of Jif peanut butter are accept-
ing entries for the 7th Annual
Jif Most Creative Peanut Butter
Sandwich Contest(tm).

The grand-prize winner will
receive a $25,000 scholarship
fund and four runners-up will
be awarded a $2,500 scholar-
ship fund. The contest is open
to children ages 6 to 12.
Last year's most creative
peanut butter sandwich was
influenced by a child's love of
Chinese food. Eleven-year-old
Samuel Sosa of Riverside,
California, hit a home run with
his "Crunchy Chinese Fortune
Cookie Sandwich," consisting
of Jif Creamy peanut butter,
celery and apple on wheat bread
crimped into the shape of a for-
tune cookie.
The "fortune cookies" are
served with a dipping sauce of
Jif Creamy peanut butter,
coconut milk, soy sauce, brown
sugar, lemon juice, sesame oil
and chili powder. Samuel added
more creativity to his sandwich
by handwriting fortunes such as
"Smile, Mom Loves You" for
his "cookies."
Jif is also offering up some-
thing for adults to help spark
their creativity.
One grand-prize winner will
win a trip to New York City to
serve as a judge at the 7th
Annual Jif Most Creative Pea-
