Daggett Hearing

Both Sides Will Attempt To Settle


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A hearing for a long-time
administrator the Hardee
County School Board refused to
rehire has been postponed
indefinitely.
Dick Daggett, who lost his
job as director of transportation
during a School Board meeting
on June 26, had asked for an
appeal before a judge with the
state Division of Administrative
Hearings.
That hearing had been set for
this Tuesday.
But attorneys for both sides
instead filed a joint motion in
early September seeking a post-
ponement. Administrative Law
Judge Daniel M. Kilbride
agreed to that request.
Kilbride has issued an order
granting a stay and placing the
case in abeyance.
Further, the judge has re-
quired the attorneys to report to
him no later than Nov. 19 as to


the status of the case.
Meanwhile, both sides will
attempt an out-of-court settle-
ment.
The School Board is being
represented by Lori R. Benton
of Ford & Harrison in Orlando.
Daggett's lawyer is Robert F.
McKee of the Tampa firm of
Kelly & McKee. McKee also
has filed a lawsuit in federal
court in Tampa, alleging
Daggett's civil rights have been
violated by the termination.
That dismissal came luring
what would have been a routine
renewal of his annual contract
with the school district, along
with 28 others. Schools Super-
intendent Dennis Jones had rec-
ommended renewal for each of
the 29 administrators.
Board Member Jan Platt,
however, instead asked that the
list be divided into two groups
- one for deputy superinten-
dent, principals and assistant

ated which was critical of the
board's actions as it considered
a new health-insurance plan for
the school district.
Board members have denied
that claim or any retaliation,

"just-cause" reason.
Daggett on Wednesday

postponement of the hearing to

to drag this out," he said.

CONTROL

"We did see an increase in
awareness of animal control the
first year we did the contest,"
said Director Teresa Carver.
She added, "But it's up to the
community as a whole to help
us qualify and get points."
Hardee County Animal Con-
trol currently has no veterinari-
an or vet technicians on staff,
and because the facility is small
cats and dogs are placed in
close quarters.
"We are constantly searching
for ways to give back to the
community, so now we needthe
community to help the ani-
mals," said Carver of participate
ing in the contest.
Also, Animal Control recent-
ly received a $15,000 grant
from Florida Animal Friends
for feral cats. The grant is made
possible by the purchase of
spay and neuter license plates,
and benefits the whole state.
The grant is used to spay or
neuter feral cats, and residents
must live outside city limits to
qualify.
In the event that a feral cat is
trapped, it must be transported
to the Hardee County Animal
Clinic where Dr. Bill 'Lovett
will decide to perform the oper-
ation. The feral cats will also be
ear-tipped, a universal sign that
they have been spayed or
neutered. After the procedure
the feral cats must be placed
back into the wild.
Animal Control would also
like to remind Hardee County
residents that donations are
accepted for animals in the
form of pet toys, blankets and
towels. For more information

This Friday local businesses Cat's On Main, Cooper's Wayside Flowers, Giovanni's,
Java Cafe, Jellybeans, The Magnolia Tree, Sears and Royal's Furniture begin "Fantastic
Fall," where residents, 18 years or older, have the chance to win $1,600 in retail-value
prizes. Participants will pick up a postcard at any of the businesses and will have until
Friday, Oct. 17, to get the postcard stamped by each of the businesses. Then, the prize
drawing will be held in Main Street Heritage Park. Fantastic Fall was created because
of the construction on Main Street hindering sales. Lynn Bennett, the organizer and co-
owner of Cooper's, said, "The idea is to get consumers in the stores to see what we
have, and what we have to offer in Hardee County." If a purchase is made while getting
the postcard stamped, then 10 percent of the sale will be contributed to Hardee County
schools. Pictured (first row, from left) Denise Miller, Kelly Pace and Sharyn Salter;

The Squeezin's
By Barbara Carlton
Peace River Valley Citrus Growers


WHAT WILL THE 2008/09 SEASON BRING?
The first event of the season will come tomorrow, Oct. 10 as
the USDA Citrus Crop Estimate is reported. Peace River Valley
Citrus Growers Association (PRVCGA) will host a breakfast for
Hardee County Growers at Joe L. Davis' barn beginning at 8 a.m.
The event is sponsored by Joe L. Davis Real Estate.
The crop estimate will be the first indication for growers of
prices for the coming season. Two industry authorities have report-
ed they believe growers will see higher prices this year. Both the
University of Florida Institute of Food & Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) and the Florida Department of Citrus (FDOC) Economic
Research Department have released reports growers could receive
between $1.30 and $1.50 for their fruit in the coming season.
Early private crop estimates announced in August predicting
smaller crops have also raised grower's hopes fruit prices will be
higher than last year. Details of the private reports do not match the
Commercial Citrus Inventory Preliminary Report release in
September, bringing speclation the private estimates are lower
than what the USDA crofestimate will be next week.
Lingering juice inventory will also play a role in grower fruit
prices this year. All these factors will play in the price growers
receive, yet until the buyers begin to make offers, growers will just
have to wait and see what happens.
Completion of the bi-annual citrus inventory reflects a contin-
ued reduction in total citrus acreage. Urban development, canker,
greening and abandonment continue to cause the decline.
Charlotte, DeSoto and Hardee Counties have all increased
their total citrus acreage slightly within the PRVCGA territory.
,Manatee and Sarasota Counties reflected small decreases in
acreage, giving the PRVCGA region a 248-acre gain.
Statewide, Martin County showed the largest loss of acreage
at 34 percent, with Hendry and Polk placing second & third in
acreage lost. Total orange acreage is the lowest since 1986.
Grapefruit acreage in the state has fallen 50 percent in eight years.
Abandon grove acreage was counted this year for the first
time, to better determine the extent. Obviously, abandon acreage
has increased in recent years and the report states 131,540 acres are
categorized abandon to date. This brings industry concern due to its
relationship to pest and disease. Industry discussions are under way
about enacting legislation requiring abandon trees to be killed.
Production for 2007-08 was up 26 percent from the previous
season. Average fruit per tree was up 52 percent on early-m'idsea-
son oranges (excluding Navels) and 59 percent higher on Valencia
oranges.
Polk, Hendry, Highlands and DeSoto were the top four pro-
ducing counties, producing 50 percent of the state's citrus. Hardee
County ranked 5th, producing 7 million boxes less than DeSoto.
Unfortunately, this increase in fruit did not translate to higher
grower income due to drastically lower prices on all varieties. All
citrus income from 2006-07 to 2007-08 dropped from $1.49 billion
$1.21 billion.
Greening continues to be in the forethought of all growers, as
'the disease continues to be detected in many local groves. Canker
also continues to plague the industry with many reports of heavy
infection in area groves due to the summer weather patterns.
Research funding from the growers will soon be allotted to specif-
ic projects as the National Academy of Sciences presents its rec-
ommefidations for funding to the Florida Citrus Production
Research Advisory Council Oct. 10.
Meanwhile, growers are trying their own experiments, hoping
to find a bridge to gap the time delay between Greening decline in
their groves and substantial research results. Five PRVCGA board
members, including local growers Bobby Krause of Krause Grove
Service and Ken Sanders of Joe L. Davis Real Estate visited a
grove in Immokalee where one grower is experimenting with tree
health. The grower is attempting to activate the natural immune
system in the tree.
While there is much to be done to determine the long-term
impact of these trials, the initial work looks promising. Growers
observed healthy producing trees, which appear to be thriving.
The groves visited showed signs of Greening in October of 2005.
'The grove was subsequently diagnosed with Greening in 40 per-
,cent of the grove in April of 2006. Two years later the grove is
producing at a 600-box-per-acre level.
Obviously the 2008/09 citrus crop season will be filled with
more challenges. However, Hardee County growers are up to the
challenge. Joe L. Davis Real Estate invites all commercial Hardee
citrus growers to join us to kick off the season at the annual crop
estimate breakfast. See you there!

SHERIFF

I believe the Hardee County Sheriff's Office has a significant responsibility to imporve the
quality of life for all our citizens. Necessary changes are vital to reduce Hardee County's soar-
ing crime rate of 22.2% compared to the 3.2% statewide average. It is important that these
changes be made on our terms. If the status quo continues then undesirable changes will be
inevitable and the quality of life in Hardee County will suffer. The operational components of
the Sheriff's Office such as the Unifrom Patrol Division, Investigative Units and the Corrections
Division has been understaffed and overloaded. This is the fundamental causation for the fifth
highest crime rate among Florida's 67 counties and that 74% of reported crimes are unsolved.
As your next Sheriff. I will streamline the Sheriff's Office of unnecessary and costly adminis-
trative positions and retool the inefficient organizational structure to eliminate waste. These
important changes will provide the resources for the addition of qualified law enforcement and
detention deputies necessary to reverse the escalating crime rate and increase the clearance
rate of reported crimes. As your next Sheriff, I will be a working Sheriff that will provide
strong leadership who will effect these important changes on behalf of all citizens of


Hardee County.

About 14 people attended a gardening meeting Oct. 1 at the
Hardee County Extension Office. The next meeting will be
Wednesday, Oct. 15, at 10 a.m. at the same location.
The group plans to develop a half-acre garden just west of the
extension office.
Nancy Craft said the community garden could lead to future
classes in cooking and preserving food. The master gardener will
be Bim Davis. For more information contact Mary Mitchell at the
extension office.

Derren Bryan, president of the new Hardee Athletic
Foundation, spoke to the Wauchula Lions Club recently.
As of mid-September the foundation has given $1,000 to local
boxer Edner Cherry, $4,000 for scholarships, and $8,000 to Hardee
athletics. There are three levels of membership: $350, $700 and
$1,500.
Other officers are Paul Samuels, vice president; Joe Albritton,
treasurer; and Sara Kerschner, secretary. Board members are
Kenny Miller, Millie Bolin, Denise Benavides; Jason Clark, Val
Patarini, Teresa'Crawford, Russ Melendy, Jay Belflpwer and
Derren Bryan.

The Hardee Wildcats looked good Friday night in defeating
Lakewood Ranch 21-7. Defensive stars included linebackers David
Newcomb and Skylar Alden. Offensive stars included quarterback
Ezayi Youyoute and back Jake Mayer. Hardee is 3-2 and will host
Sebring Friday for homecoming in a district matchup.

The current Business Facilities magazine reports Volkswagon,
the German auto giant, plans to build a manufacturing plant in
Chattanooga, Tenn., that could produce 150,000 vehicles annually.
The plant will open in 2011 and create 2,000 jobs.
I am pulling for America's General Motors and Ford Motor
Company to do well and believe in supporting our local dealerships
and used car dealers.
Volkswagen closed their last U.S. manufacturing plant, in
1988.

Local citrus growers will want to attend the free breakfast and
USDA citrus crop estimate on Friday at 8 a.m. at the Joe L. Davis
Barn east of Wauchula. This is sponsored by Joe L. Davis Real
Estate Inc. and Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association.
Local radio station WZZS 106.9 FM will carry the forecast.
PRVCGA has about 200 citrus members from Hardee, DeSoto,
Manatee, Sarasota and Charlotte counties.
I strongly believe fresh citrus and citrus juice is one of the best
products in the world.

Last month America lost one of its favorite movie actors, Paul
Newman, 83, who passed away from cancer. He had over 100
movie, TV and broadway roles, reported Lynn Smith of the Los
Angeles Times. He was married to his second wife Joanne
Woodward for 50 years.
He was also a fine race car driver and founded Newman's
Own, a food processing firm that has donated its profits (over $250
million) to charities.
Some of his most famous movies were "The Hustler" (1961),
"A Long Hot Summer" (1958), "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance
Kid" (1969), "Cool Hand Luke" (1967), and 'The Color of
Money" (1986).


The Manatee County Commission recently denied a request
for Mosaic to mine the Altman tract because of concern about dig-.
ging up 480 acres of wetlands. The U,S, Army corps of Engineers :
recently suspended.a permit to approvethe mining for further
study. A suit had been filed by Earthjustice on behalf of the Sierra
Club, Manisota 88, People for Protecting Peace River, the Gulf
Restoration Network, and the Environmental Confederation of
* Southwest Florida.
t Mining regulations require phosphate companies to recreate
wetlands after the mining. Earthjustice feels the new wetlands are
not as good as the natural ones.
Earthjustice says since the 1980s strip mining has occurred on
over 200,000 acres in the Peace River watershed, including 35,000
acres of wetlands and 101 miles of streams.
Environmental groups note that Mosaic is seeking permits to
mine about 34,000 more acres within the watershed and wants the
Army Corps of Engineers to perform a regional environmental
impact study, said David Guest of Earthjustice.
The modern phosphate industry provides great jobs and pro-
duces phosphate-based fertilizers necessary to grow crops and feed
the world's population.
Bowling Green farmer Jimmy Parker has a sign on a big trail-
er that says, "If you wanna eat, you gotta have phosphate."
Modern reclamation has greatly improved and companies are
concerned about the environment, while wanting to mine and be
profitable. Mosaic's stock price has dropped significantly this past
year. The rest of the stock market has also declined.
Hopefully mining can still be allowed while protecting the
environment as much as possible. Perhaps some adjustments can
be made on both sides of this important issue of mining, jobs, fer-
tilizer, and protecting the watershed and Charlotte Harbor.
Both mining and the environment are important to Hardee
County. Unfortunately some of the best phosphate deposits are in
the wetland areas.

Many people are concerned about the declining values in the
stock markets. Hopefully the $700 billion bailout package
approved by Congress and signed by President George W. Bush
will help the national and world economy.
On Monday the price of oil had fallen to under $90 a barrel,
and on Tuesday the price of regular unleaded gasoline had dropped
to $3.439 a gallon.

Here's hoping the Tampa Bay Rays can defeat Boston and
advance to and win the World Series. I like Rays manager Joe
Maddon and manager Joe Torre of the LA Dodgers.

Volleyball Girls Close


October 9. 2008, The Herald-Advocate 5A

ilT9s W~nLIDCAT FOOTmTALL TuIMIE


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee varsity volleyball
team is on the verge.
Of winning, that is. The girls
have been in several close
games but came out on the short
end.
This week's games were a
trip to Sarasota Booker on
Tuesday and a varsity-only
home encounter with Palmetto
tonight (Thursday) at 7. The
varsity girls will be in a tourna-
ment at Bradenton tomorrow
and Saturday.
Next week brings the close of
the regular season, with games
at Sebring on Tuesday and a
visit from DeSoto on Thursday
to end the season. The district
tournament is Oct. 27-31 at
Braden River.
Hardee had some very close
encounters last week. It began
on Tuesday at Braden River in
a varsity-only match. Hardee
played well as a team in the 25-
14, 15-17, 15-14 loss, said Head
Coach Ken Leupold.
Against Avon Park on
Thursday at home, Hardee bat-
tled against a much-improved
Red Devil team. "We should
have won, but they dug a lot of
stuff they wouldn't have the
first time. They always serve


strong too," said Leupold of the
25-23, 25-18, 25-16 loss.
That led to a weekend tourna-
ment in Lakeland. On Friday
night Hardee opened against
tough Lakeland and "was anni-
hilated." The tournament was
the best of three format. Hardee
lost 25-4 and 25-10.
Hardee came back strong
against Titusville Astronaut and
was ahead 20-19 in the first
game, before losing 25-21. The
Lady 'Cats went on to lose the
second game 25-11.
Hardee went back to Lake-
land on Saturday and played
another pair of matches. In the
opener against Faith Christian,
Hardee had its best all-round
game, winning 25-11. They got
behind immediately in the sec-
ond game and couldn't quite
come back, losing 25-21. They
also lost the third game 15-9.
Hardee also worked hard in
the first playoff bracket game
against Auburndale, but suc-
cumbed 25-23, and 26-24.
''We're just not all concen-
trating all of the time. We can't
play with five working and the
sixth not focused. We should
have won four of the five
matches Thursday through
Saturday," commented disap-
pointed Coach Leupold.

fruit and vegetable season,
Hardee County sent out 1,602
carloads of produce, according
to a report compiled by Frank
Scruggs, market news specialist
of the Florida State Marketing
bureau.

50 YEARS AGO
Highlanders Invade Cat Lair
Tonight At 8: Winter Haven's
Blue Devils won a hard-fought,
grinding 7 to 0 football game
from the Hardee Wildcats by
virtue of the only sustained
drive of the game last Friday
night.

Face Lifting For City Audi-
torium Studied: The Wauchula
city hall, especially the audito-
rium, is badly in need of some
electrical up dating and the
stage needs a face lifting. This
was the consensus of opinion
on the city council Monday
night after hearing superinten-
dent Cab Barker's report that
the wiring in the city hall
"needs a lot of work."

Ice Ordinance Is Tabled: A
proposed city ordinance requir-
ing that all ice sold in Wauchula
be secured within the city limits
died Monday night before it
could even be given a second
reading. The ordinance was
aimed to protecting the local ice
manufacturer from competition
and local buyers from short
weights through meltage while
the ice was being transported to
Wauchula.

School Board Eyes Cut In
Elementary Faculties: An in-
creased number of students per
classroom in Hardee's elemen-


tary schools, allowing a de-
crease in the school faculties in
spite of the addition of physical
education instructors, is the
prime objective of a school
reorganization plan under con-
sideration for next year.

Skeeters Rally Beats Fort
Myers: Hardee Junior High's
Skeeters spotted the Fort Myers
Junior High team a 19 to 7 first
half lead and then stormed back
for two fourth period touch-
downs and a sweet 21 to 19 vic-
tory Tuesday night at Farr Field.

Cuke Festival Set For Nov.
10-15: Get your best bib and
tucker, because it's almost fair
time again. The Hardee County
Cucumber Exposition has been
set for Nov. 10 through 15, only
four weeks away. Manager
Dave Davis is promising an
even bigger and better fair and
midway than in previous years.

Pleasant Duty: Hardee
County's auxiliary sheriff's de-
puties found out it isn't all hard
work to be a policeman. They
got a good, hearty meal before
showing off their new uniforms
at last Friday's football game.

25 YEARS AGO
Terrell Advises School Board
Not To Wait: School Board
Superintendent John Terrell
recommended last Friday that
the School Board go ahead and
fix the problems in the heating
and cooling system at North
Wauchula Elementary and not
wait for the results of possible
litigation.

Architect Opposes Solution:
The original architect of North
Wauchula Elementary disagrees
with a recent recommendation
by a Tampa engineer that the
school's heating and cooling
system needs more tonnage to
work properly.

North Wauchula PTO Proud
Of Improvements: Members of
the North Wauchula Parents-
Teachers Organization (PTO)
are very proud of the improve-
ments they have been able to
make at the elementary school
this year. School Superinten-
dent John Terrell has publicly
praised the work of the PTO
during a ',ent school board
meeting.

10 YEARS AGO
New Utility Payment Drop-
box Makes Life Easier: Wau-
chula utility customers will no
longer have to park and go
around their vehicles to.place
payments in the small curbside
box in front of City Hall. Last


week, city staff responded to
citizen distress by installing a
large drive-up post-office box
in the alleyway west of City
Hall.

Timmerman Takes Runoff:
Dr. Clifton "Nick" Timmerrnmn
will be the local Democratic
Party's candidate for County
Commission in the Nov. 3 gen-
eral election. Timmerman won
that right in last Thursday's


runoff, beating fellow Demo-
crat Ray Grimes by 158 votes.

4 File So Far In Wauchula:
Any remaining candidates for
.he Wauchula City Council
need to throw their hats in the
ring by Friday at noon. The
annual qualifying period, which
began Monday at noon, has
drawn five people interested in
the three City Council seats
available this year.

This certificate, conferred by U.S. Postmaster General Harry S. New on June 14, 1928, com-
missions Mary B. Makowski as postmaster of the Vandolah Post Office. The certificate car-
ries the raised seal of the "Post Office Department" of the United States of America. The cen-
ter of the seal features a Pony Express rider. Makowski, the certificate says, was appointed
because of the postmaster general's "special trust and confidence" in her "intelligence, dili-
gence and discretion." The certificate was signed in Washington, D.C., on what it notes as
the "14th day of June in the year of our Lord 1928, and of the Independence of the United
States of America the 152nd." MpCowski is shown below in a later picture.

To Your Health!
By Erin E. Hess
Hardee County Health Department


This month, I am turning my column over to Elizabeth "Betsy"
Aegley, epidemiology project director here at the Health
Department:
FLU SEASON;. HERE!
With the advent of cooler weather, comes the beginning of
influenza season.
Commonly called "the flu", influenza is characterized by a
fever of 100 degrees or more, along with a cough or sore throat.
While primarily a respiratory illness, occasional symptoms of the
flu include an upset stomach, diarrhea and vomiting.
Last flu season, Oct. 1, 2007 through June 30, 2008, the
Hardee County Health Department and local physicians submitted
17 lab specimens to the state laboratory in Tampa for influenza
testing. The youngest patient tested was 4 months old and the
eldest patient tested was 57. The average age for patients tested was
22. The majority of the patients tested were men.
Of the 17 specimens set to Tampa, 11 had positive results; 18
percent of the positives results were for the Influenza strain HINI,
35 percent were for the strain H3N2. Most of the specimens col-
lected were from patients whose onset of symptoms began in mid-
February, with spikes on Feb. 20 and Feb. 24.
An important change in the vaccine recommendations for this
.year is that all children ages 6 months through 18 years of age
should be vaccinated. Also, anyone age 50 or older should be vac-
cinated.
Influenza vaccination is recommended for anyone who wants
to reduce the likelihood of becoming ill with influenza or spread-
ing influenza to others.
Other groups who should receive an influenza vaccination
include:
anyone who is at risk for complications from influenza;
anyone who is more likely to require medical care;
pregnant women;
anyone with a long-term health problem, a weakened
immune system, such as HIV/AIDS, long-term steroid treatment or
cancer treatments, muscle or nerve disorders or on long-term
aspirin treatment
residents of nursing homes and other chronic-care facilities
anyone who lives with or cares for people at high risk for
influenza-related complications such as health care providers,
household contacts and caregivers of children from birth to 5 years
of age, and household contacts and caregivers of people 50 years
and older or anyone with a medical condition that puts them at
higher risk for sever complications from influenza
Healthcare providers also may recommend a yearly influenza
vaccination for:
people who provide essential community services
people living in dormitories, correctional facilities, or under
other crowded conditions to prevent outbreaks
people at high risk of influenza complications who travel to
.the Southern hemisphere between April and September
Students at Hardee Junior High and Senior High Schools will
have the opportunity to receive their influenza vaccine from the
school nurses during school hours. Information on this program is
being sent home with students through their school.
The Hardee County Health Department is offering vaccina-
tions for the community, beginning on Oct. 1. Please call the
Health Department at 773-4161, ext. 0, or your personal physician,
to schedule an appointment for your vaccination.
Remember, it's never too late to get your flu shot!

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, it is midway into the football season and
the National Championship is up for grabs. Oklahoma and
Alabama currently occupy the two top spots but putting money on
either to be in the Fiesta Bowl would be premature. The SEC and
Big 12 have championship games as well as many good games left.
Oklahoma and Texas square off this week in Dallas. Many teams
have bye weeks this week so they have Saturday off. Time to heal
and evaluate the first half the season is the priority.
-The USF Bulls have done it again. Like 2007, as soon as the
Bulls crack the Top 10, they falter. How does a team lose like USF
lost at home to a team like Pitt coached by Dave Wannstedt?
Inexcusable Bulls Fans. That's the only way to see it. USF is off
until Oct.18 when they host lowly Syracuse in Tampa.
The Big East overall is down a bit in 2008. Gone are stars
Steve Slaton and Owen Schmidt of West Virginia, Ray Rice at
Rutgers and Brian Brohm at Louisville. Cincinnati is sporting a 4-
1 record with the lone loss to top-ranked Oklahoma. Pitt does sit
atop the Big East with a 4-1 record, 2-0 in the conference, but there
is a lot of football left. Connecticut and West Virginia are very
much in the hunt as well. The Huskies are at 5-1 but have lost
Quarterback Lorenson. West Virginia, at 3-2, is jelling under a new
coaching staff. Like most conferences in 2008, it is wide open.
Random thoughts and observations:
The FSU-Miami game may not have had national implications
but it was fun to watch. The 41-39 classic had it all, even a tackle-
eligible touchdown pass. The running attack of FSU demonstrated
the success offensive line coach Rick Trickett is having turning
around the program. Jimbo Fisher is getting it done for the 4-1
Noles.
West Virginia Quarterback Pat White now needs 355 yards
rushing to surpass Brad Smith of Missouri as the all-time rushing
QB in college football.
The Gators have a must win game with LSU this week. They.
took care of business at Arkansas but must cut down the penalties
.against LSU.
The Big 12 folks have been saying all season that their con-
ference is as good as the SEC. This week, eyes will be on the Big
12 as two giant games are on tap. Texas vs. Oklahoma is the clas-
sic with both teams undefeated at 5-0. That shouldn't take the spot-
light off the other game where:5-0 teams square off with confer-
ence implications as well. Oklahoma State takes on Missouri in an
equally important contest. Sports bars in the Midwest should make
a fortune this weekend.
Now Let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare ...
1.) LSU at Florida Gators need a total effort to get back on
track to Atlanta first then to Tempe. This game will come down to
a big play by a defense. Florida 33 LSU 30.
2.) Syracuse at West Virginia Homecoming in the
Mountains in October. As my favorite ABC commentator old Chri!
Schenkle used to say," What better way to spend an autumn after-
noon." The Mountaineers will use a solid defense and Pat White
and Noel Devine running to squeeze the Orange. WVU 31
Syracuse 10.
3.) UCF at Miami Canes have lost back-to-back heart-

Hardee County


DEDICATED, EXPERIENCED, LEADERSHIP

Law Enforcement professionals as well as others tend to
resist change, however change throughout an
organization can make existing and future communities
safer and more productive. As in all professions, change
occurs daily, weekly and throughout any administration.
With the future of our economy, we all have to
re-examine the way we do business in many areas. We
will re-evaluate the way we are educated and trained;
explore new and better technologies to be more produc-
tive; and also constantly analyze emerging trends and
think about each potential outcome. With the many
challenges we face, we must have the equipment and
manpower to protect and serve our citizens.
I have been involved with law enforcement in all areas
for over thirty years. With this experience and having the
privilege to serve as Chief Deputy for eleven years, I am
well prepared to be Sheriff of Hardee County. I look
forward to the many challenges that I will face, and I ask
for your support on November 4, 2008 to make this
accomplishment together.

'Cats Mash


Mustangs 21-7


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats sacked
the Lakewood Ranch quarter-
back eight times, stalling
Homecoming scoring hopes.
The 'Cats were defensively
on target all night, with senior
Nolan Neuhauser claiming
three of the sacks. The defense
scored once on a blocked punt,
and gave Hardee good .field
position throughout the even-
ing.
With the Sebring Blue
Streaks coming to town Friday
for Hardee Homecoming, the
Wildcats will need a repeat per-
formance. Sebring won its first
game of the season 24-3 over
Martin County's Stuart High,
but has dropped four games
since, losing 34-20 to Pasco-
Dade City, 48-7 to Okeechobee,
42-12 to Frostproof and 55-42
to Jensen Beach last weekend.


"Sebring is very physical
offensively and defensely. They
throw the ball a lot and do it
well. Their defense is hard-
nosed, the same kind we face
every year. We will have to
have a good week in practice to
be ready for them," said Hardee
Head Coach Tim Price.
Once past the Streaks, the
Wildcats get a week off to recu-
perate and plan for the final
four games of the season,
including district road trips to
Braden River and DeSoto and
home encounters with Cape
Coral Mariner and Ridge
Community.
There were several stars for
Hardee in last week's game.
Junior Kelsheem White had a
pair of key blocks that sprung
quarterback Ezayi Youyoute
loose for touchdown runs.
White also had six carries for
24 yards and twin catches for

Some of you may not be aware when you call
9p 11,l911 for an ambulance or a fire truck your call
goes to Polk County for a Hardee County ve-
hicle to be dispatched. I have concerns about this process, even
though I understand our EMS employees say the system
works. Polk County dispatchers do not know the areas of Har-
dee County. Therefore, I consider this a safety issue for the cit-
izens of Hardee County and we should take care of ourselves.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

WHAT'S YOUR SECRET?
My big secret is that about 20 years ago, I gave myself to God.
I know now that God was blessing me before this moment but it
was far from clear to me then. I was still hurting from being self-
ish and hurting others. Would God pick me up in such a bad
moment and do something good with my life?
Well, I wasn't 100 percent sure, but I was so discouraged by
all the failures I'd accumulated by doing things my way, that I just
did it. I made the choice and God took, me up pn it!
You see, our choosing is like ,a.key that unlocks God's 'bounty.
He wants all of His children to be happydbut only He knows how
to dispense that happiness. But the important first step is choosing
to give our Father a free hand.
The reality is that God is like a big fire. Most people want to
come close enough to get warm but not so close they'll get
burned.
Remember the Old Testament story of Shadrack, Meshach and
Abednego who were thrown into the fiery furnace because they
refused to bow down to an idol. Instead of getting burned up, they
met the Lord there and walked around together in the furnace
unharmed.
That's the way it is when we give the Lord freedom to manage
us, our businesses, families and finances. It seems at first to be
highly risky. In time, though, it turns out to be the smartest move
we ever made!

CREWS ON THE CRISIS
r


JV Football Remains Unbeaten


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
Bill Crews, chairman of the board at Wauchula State Bank, spoke on Sept. 16 at the
Wauchula Kiwanis Club about the sub-prime lending situation and the U.S. government
takeover of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. He said 99 percent of commercial banks in
the nation are well capitalized. Crews said low interest rates from 2000 to 2006 helped
fuel land speculators and the loan industry. "Anybody could get a loan. There were
many mortgage brokers." Loans got resold, repackaged in bundles, and purchased by
many big investment companies, foreign and domestic. Many loans were made to
unqualified borrowers. The process peaked in mid-2005. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
guarantee about $5.4 trillion of home debt. He said real estate values have fallen 30 to
40 percent. Shown (from left) are Crews, David Singletary, Carl Saunders and Steven
Southwell.

The Hardee junior varsity
Wildcats upped their record to
4-0.
Coming off a bye week, the
young 'Cats were enthused and
ready to play at Fort Meade last
week, winning 41-7.
This week, the boys travel to
Sebring to take on the JV
Streaks. Next week's game is at
home against DeSoto. Then,
there's, a home against Lake
Placid on Oct. 23 and a trip to
Okeechobee on Oct. 30 to end
the season.
In last week's game, "We
were afraid the kids would be
flat coming after an off week.
We told them the Miners would
be improved and we wanted to
be the best so we needed to step
it up.
"And they responded, both
offensively and defensively. We
don't have any superstars but
we battle. And the kids listen to
their coaches and do what they
say. So, it's a good combina-
tion," said Head Coach Rod
Smith.
Hardee- kicked off to Fort
Meade to start the game. On the
first series, Lincoln Saunders
batted a third-down pass and
Tony Moreno caught it and
went toward the goal line.
Andrew Hooks finished it off
with a seven-yard run. The
Jimmy Vallejo kick was good
and Hardee had a lead it would-
n't give up.
In the second quarter, soph
quarterback Tre' Anderson
completed a 15-yard pass play
to Reggie Snell for the score.
Another Vallejo kick made it
14-0.


Hardee scored yet again in
the second period, when Colby
Baker scampered the final five
yards. Vallejo made it 21-0.
In the last few momentss of
the first half, Fort Meade com-
pleted a 60-yard screen pass
play for its only score of the
night. That shook up the Wild-
cats a bit, although they went
into half time up 21-7, said
Smith.
On the opening kickoff of the
second half, Hardee success-
fully worked the wedge for a
runback to the Miner 25.
Anderson finished it off with a
25-yard TD run. "We had some
nice drives and some stalled,
we're not real consistent yet,"
commented Smith.
The defense worked well, he
added, noting interceptions by
Justin Knight and Moreno, a
pair of sacks by Saunders and
one each by Moreno and Dylan
Farr.
In on the tackle parade were
Hooks, Devante Lang, David


Chapa, Deonte Evans, Julian
Varela, Mary Braddock, Dalton
Rabon, Knight, Moreno, Chase
Revell, Brandon Darley, Ryan
Blair, Michael Forrester, Quen-
tin Carlton, Thomas Flores,
Vallejo and Saunders.
"The first and second offen-
sive lines did a nice job of
opening timely holes for the
backs to run through," said
Smith. After the first score of
the second half, Hardee went on
to score twice more. Hooks fin-
ished a series with a two-yard
run and Baker had an 11-yard
score in the fourth quarter, with
the Vallejo kick good.
On the ground, Anderson had
seven carries for 48 yards,
Carlton six for 27, Hooks eight
for 83, Baker 10 for 73, Blair
two for 15, Snell two for two
and Evans one for five.
Anderson attempted three
passes and completed two, suf-
fering one interception. Evans
caught a pass for five yards and
another for his 15-yard TD.


Nicolaus Copernicus, the Polish astronomer, was also a doctor,
a lawyer, and a church official.

ESE Department


Hosts Workshop


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Statistics show one in every
five Americans is a person with
a disability.
This, October, is National
Disabilities Awareness Month.
And in keeping with that, the
Exceptional Student Education
,Department of the Hardee
SCounty School District is host-
ing a workshop for parents of
children with disabilities.
The workshop will focus on
"parent survival skills" for
those who have children who
are deaf or hard of hearing, or
who are blind or visually
!impaired. The workshop is set
!for Monday, Oct. 20, from 6 to
7:30 p.m. in the ESE Training
Room at 200 S. Florida Ave. in
Wauchula.
The ESE Department notes
people can be born with a dis-
ability or may acquire one
because of an illness or acci-
dent. Some disabilities are
merely a part of growing older.
Even though disabilities are a
,natural part of life, the disabled
,have not always been provided
equal access or opportunity. In
fact, the ESE Department
points out, disabled children
were not guaranteed a free and


appropriate public education
until the 1975 passage of the
federal Education for All
Handicapped Children Act.
Florida began its first special-
education class in Jacksonville
in 1926. Since then, specially
'designed instruction and related
services have expanded
throughout the state. Now,
roughly 400,000 such young-
sters are graduating and going
on to college or technical or
vocational schools, or on to
employment.
The local ESE Department is
working to promote awareness
of disabilities and of the contri-
butions people with disabilities.
have made. The Survival Skills
workshop is one of the efforts it
has undertaken this month.
Workshop discussions will
include the family dynamics of
having a child with a disability
and the impacts in and around
the family, the need for internal
communication within the fam-
ily, and coping strategies for the
issues and stresses which are a
part of everyday life.
For more information on the
workshop or on the local obser-
vance of National Disabilities
Awareness Month, contact the
ESE Department at 773-2600.


Water Levels


Still Low


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
Water restriction has been
extended through Feb. 27.
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District's Govern-
ing Board voted Sept. 30 that
lawn watering should continue
to be limited to one-day-per-
week. The water shortage order
also includes restriction of pub-
lic and private water utilities,
such as wells, and surface water
sources like ponds and rivers.
The water shortage is due to
the two-year drought that the 16
counties in the district have
faced. Even though Tropical
Storm Fay brought plenty of
rain, Hardee County did not
benefit as much from it. :
IOther named storms from this
year's hurricane season only
brought drier air instead of
much needed rainfall. As a
result of this the district is still
experiencing a 24-month rain-
fall deficit.
The order has been in effect
since Jan. 16, 2007 and was set


to expire on Sept. 30, until the
governing board's decision.
The current weekly schedule
uses house numbers in numeri-
cal order: On Mondays house
numbers ending in 0 or 1;
Tuesday 2 or 3; Wednesday 4 or
5; Thursday 6 or 7; and Friday 8
or 9.
In addition, The Florida
Municipal Electric Association
(FEMA) reminds residents that
this year's hurricane season is
still in effect until Nov. 30.
They have put together one
dozen hurricane season tips for
safety during a hurricane.
Some of the tips include:
unplugging large appliances
and electronics in a house to
prevent power surges; not ha%-
ing a generator in your house or
garage and never plug one into
a home's main electrical sys-
tem; visit www.FloridaDis-
aster.org to determine an evacu-
ation route; and create a hurri-
cane survival kit that includes
first aid, water, batteries, flash-
lights, canned foods, etc.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An extra-inning loss has
ruined the Hardee Junior High
School softball team's hopes of
an undefeated season.
The girls went to DeSoto last
Thursday and battled the junior
Lady Bulldogs for nine long
innings, with DeSoto finally
scoring the game-winner in the
bottom of the ninth. Usually, a
junior high game is seven
innings.
This week, Hardee was home
for a game against Hill-Gustat
Middle School on Monday and
travels to Sebring today (Thurs-
day). Next week's games are
also a split, on the road Monday
to play at Avon Park and at
home Thursday for a visit from
Lake Placid.
The season ends with a return
match-up with DeSoto on Oct.
20, this one on Hardee turf, and
an Oct. 23 trip to Hill-Gustat.
Last week started well for the
Hardee girls, who won at Lake
Placid 16-0 in a game called at
the end of the third inning on
the time limit.
Second sacker Kayla Nichols
got Hardee started with a run in
the top of the first, as she sin-
gled, went to second on a Kayla
Knight sacrifice and raced
home on a Kate Thomas hit.
After a trio of strikeouts in
the home half of the inning,
Hardee went back to work and
plated five runs in the top of the
second inning. Karlee Hender-
son and Ana Galvez were
aboard when Addison Aubry
homered. Nichols tripled and
trotted home on a Knight
homer. Thomas singled but was
stranded when the third out
occurred.
A couple of ground-outs and
a strike-out took care of Lake
Placid in the bottom of the sec-
ond.
Hardee had a 13-batter outing
in the top of the third, bringing
10 of them back around to
home plate. Jessica Harrison
crossed the plate twice, and
Summer Sisum, Galvez, Hen-
derson, Brooke Knight, Thom-
as, Kayla Knight, Nichols and
Addison added solo scores.
When Lake Placid was held
in check once again in the home
half of the third, the game was
called.., ..- _
It was, different, story at
Arcadia on Thursday, where
Hardee faced its toughest chal-
lenge after three overwhelming
victories.
With two down in the top of
the first, Hardee got a fielder's
choice from Kayla Knight and
walk to Thomas. Both were left
aboard. DeSoto stranded one
runner who had singled.
In the top of the second,
Sisum was left on base and, in
the home half, a double went
for naught.
Hardee was three up, three
down in the third frame. DeSoto


,ot on the board with a hit, error
and walk, bringing three run-
ners to home plate for a 3-0
lead.
Hardee went down in order
again in the fourth and DeSoto
left a runner stranded.
Hardee evened the game in
the top of the fifth. With two
down, Aubry singled, Nichols
was safe on an error on a sacri-
fice, Kayla Knight doubled and
Thomas singled. The first three
runners touched home plate.
The game rocked along


through two-and-a-half score-_ Neither team was able to

The John Deere name says reliable. The price says affordable. The all-
new 6D Series Tractors are loaded with features you might expect only
in premium tractors. Features like 100 to 140 engine horsepower to
handle just about any job. An impressive 17.6 gallon/minute hydraulic
flow rate. A 540/1000 rpm PTO to match any implement you have. Ease
of shuttle-shifting. And loads of flexibility. Just add a loader and stack
bales, move pallets, clean pens, load brush, whatever you need. Stop by
the dealership and dare to compare the new John Deere utility tractors
to all the rest. These are the tractors that only look expensive.

Protect Your Truck's Bed. Protect Your Truck's Value!
l.> The LINE-X Protection Advantage
LINE-X is the leading spray-on bedliner with
LINHE an exclusive formula that permanently bonds
-f'.- -- to your truck's bed, completely sealing out
water and dirt, delivering the protection you
.; need and demand for your truck.
Drop-in Disadvantages
A drop-in liner covers up your truck
bed, trapping water and debris between
the liner and the bed of your truck. As a
result, a drop-in bedliner actually promotes
condensation, water damage, abrasion, rust,
and corrosion.

Of The Herald-Advocate
Sophomore girls team leader
Kara Norris led all golfers
home in last week's match.
Norris became the medalist
with a 44 in the quad-match at
The Bluffs last Monday.
DeSoto was the host school and
tied with Avon Park for best
team score at 215. Hardee was
only nine strokes back at 224
and Lake Placid completed the
foursome at 258.
"We're getting better and bet-
ter." said girls coach Byron
Jarnigan, obviously pleased
with the Norris accomplish-
ment. The sophomore leader


was followed by classmates
Lauren Moore and Emily Will-
iams, freshman Emma Marshall
and soph Ivette Cisneros.
The girls played a quad-
match at River Greens, the
Avon Park girls course, on
Monday, the final regular sea-
son match. The Class IA
District 16 tournament is Oct 14
at Greenville Plantation, the
very watery course at Braden-
ton where St. Stephens Acad-
emy plays.
Girls teams also in District 16
are Avon Park. Braden Rivier,
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney,
DeSoto and Lake Placid.
Meanwhile. Hardee boys


completed only one match last
week, playing Avon Park on its
boys course, Pinecrest. The Red
Devils won 163-166. "It was a
nail-biter to the end,",comment-
ed boys coach George Heine.
Junior Grayson Lambert had
a superb outing with a pair of
birdies in completing the course
with a score of 39. Senior Jake
Crews had a 40 and a birdie,
Ben Krause had a birdie and a
41 and soph Taylor Barlow had
a 46.
The boys finish up the regular
season with two matches this
week, at DeSoto on Tuesday
and hosting Lake Placid today
(Thursday).


The boys districts are Monday,
Oct. 13, at Bradenton on the
Greenville Plantation course.
The boys have more teams to
contend with, as Bradenton
Prep, Bradenton Christian,
Sarasota Out-Of-Door, Sarasota
Christian and Bradenton St.
Stephens, the host school, all
have only boys squad. The dis-
trict does also include Avon
Park,' Braden River, Cardinal
Mooney, DeSoto and Lake
Placid.
Against the golf academies,
the private schools, Hard-ee
would have to have a stellar
outing to qualify anyone for
regional or state competition.

HJHS Hits Bump

In 25-20 Loss


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"It's only one game. We can
do better," said HJHS football
coaches.
They were talking about the
25-20 loss last week to Sebring.
The theme for this week's
game at Lake Placid was "I
won't back down."
-Acting Head Coach Mark
Carlton said special teams gave
up too much yardage on kickoff
and punt returns. That and pen-
alties could have cost Hardee
the game against Sebring, espe-
cially when a touchdown was
called back.
The game began when Se-
bring ran back the opening
kickoff for a touchdown and
nailed the PAT for a 7-0 lead,
which continued for the rest of
the first period.
Early in the second period,
Aaron Barker took the pitch
from Luke Palmer and went
into the end zone. The PAT was
no good; it was a 7-6 game.
After a Sebring fumble,
Hardee drove down again.
Palmer completed a pass to
Garrett Albritton for another
TD. Palmer threw to Josh
Fowler for a two-point conver-
sion play and Hardee led 14-7.
Sebring drove down and put
up another score but missed
the extra point, making it a 14-
13 game.
The first half wasn't done yet.
The junior Wildcats drove
down the field, and with just
over a minute left, Palmer pass-


ed to Kalep Brown. Hardee led
20-13.
Sebring quickly responded
with a good kickoff return to the
Hardee red zone. A sweep to the
left got a score, leaving Hardee
with a slight edge 20-19 at half-
time.
The second half was more of
a defensive battle. Penalties
killed a third quarter drive for
Hardee. Sebring got to a fourth-
and-12, faked a punt and made
the first down and went on for
the only score of the second
half for the 25-20 lead and
eventual win.
Hardee was moving along
well in the fourth quarter, when
Barker made good yardage. On
a fake to Vince Grimsley and
good gain, the play was called
back on a block-in-the-back
penalty. Hardee failed to con-
vert on a pair of passes and the
game ended.
Carlton noted fullback Grim-
sley had some nice blocks to
free Barker.
"Palmer is an excellent game
manager. He has a good grasp
of the down and distance,"
Carlton said.
He reminded his players that
the win at Avon Park which
opened the season was because
the kids executed well and were
running the ball and taking care
of it.
"One loss is not the end of the
season. We need to face up and
play hard every down," he con-
cluded.


On The Agenda

HARDEE COUNTY COMMISSION
The Hardee County Commission will hold its regular ses-
sion today (Thursday) beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Room 102,
Courthouse Annex I, 412 W. Orange St., Wauchula. The fol-
lowing is a synopsis of agenda topics that may be of public
interest. Times are approximate except for advertised public
hearings.

Schedule Grillin' and Chillin' for March, 8:45 a.m.
Creation of an Enterprise Zone Development Agency and

-r- i--------
The Hardee Wildcats are continuing their win streak, now 3-0,
with their 21-7 victory at 5A Bradenton Lakewood Ranch last
weekend. The defense really reared up, sacking the Mustang quar-
terback eight times, blocking a punt and taking the loose ball for a
touchdown and intercepting a pass in the end zone to prevent a
touchdown.
This week is Homecoming, which begins with the 2:30 p.m.
parade downtown, continues with the 7:30 p.m. game against
Sebring, and finishes with the Saturday night dance. The
Homecoming Queen and her court will be crowned at halftime, the
king at the dance. Be there or be square, as they used to say.
JV Football is doing great, coming back from a bye week to
master the Fort Meade Miners on their turf. This week is the start
of the run to the end of the season. There's a road game, two home
games and a final road game.
Junior High football hit a glitch last week in a 25-20 loss at
home against Sebring. This week's game is at Lake Placid, hope-
fully turning back to the winning side of the ledger. The coaches
would like to change that 1-1 record and go unbeaten the rest of the
way.
Wildcat swimmers almost ruled the Heartland Invitational last
weekend. A scheduling error cost a disqualification which could
have placed the 'Cats in first place of the eight teams involved.
Hardee girls were in the middle of the pack, finishing a close fifth,
losing points because there are no female divers on the squad.
In golf, Kara Norris was medalist at a quad-match at The Bluffs
last week. She may be the one to follow in her father's footsteps.
Ben Norris has a long, winning tradition for her to carry on.
Hardee boys golfers are taking turns leading the team; all are
shooting quite well. The district tournaments are next week, boys
on Monday, girls on Tuesday.
Speaking of golf, there's a last chance to sign up for the
Chamber of Commerce annual tournament at Torrey Oaks on Oct.
18. The four-man scramble begins with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.
Hole and event sponsors, and participants should contact Casey
Dickson at 773-6967 or the golf course at 767-0302.
The high school volleyball girls are struggling but battling
every game, losing some in extra points, as 26-24, or just barely as
25-23. Other games have more gap in the outcomes. The girls are
winding down the season next week and will be in district tourna-
ment Oct. 27-31 in Bradenton.
Hardee Junior High softball is having a good season, but lost a
heart-breaker in nine innings last week to DeSoto. Expect Coach
Sharri Knight and her charges to get back on the winning track this
week. They were 3-1 at the end of last week.
Younger ball-players have signups coming up all next week at
Heine fields off South Florida Avenue in Wauchula, behind Farr
Field. Cost is $50 and a parent or guardian must come with the
child and bring his/her birth certificate. The cost includes shirt,
pants and socks. There is a $5 discount for each additional child in
a family. Signups are 5 to 7 p.m. each weeknight and 9 a.m. to
noon, next Saturday, Oct. 18.
Girls have several divisions. Sweetie-Tees, tee-ball softball, are
ages 4 to 6 by the May 1, 2009 age cutoff limit. Dixie Darlings (for-
merly machine pitch) is for 6- to 8 year-olds.
The younger boys also have baseball signups at the same times
and place. This includes tee-ball A, ages 5-6; machine pitch AA,
ages 7-8; and Minors AAA, ages 9-10.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please e-mail me at news.heraldadvocate @embarq-
mail.come or call me at 773-3255 with news for this biweekly col-
umn. The sports deadline is Thursday at 5 p.m., except for events
which happened over the weekend. They are due by noon Monday.
Most people would rather be certain they're miserable,
than risk being happy.

Local chemist Autumn Blum, formulator and CEO of
Organix South Inc., beat out 18 other women for the title
of Ladies Skeet-Shoot State Championship and was rated
highest overall. She has been shooting skeet since she
was 15. "My first after-school job was at a trap and skeet
club, Night's Trail, in Sarasota and I had to learn gun
safety and how to shoot a shotgun in order to work
there," said Blum. The skeet-shoot was held in Palatka on
Sept. 20-21 where she was awarded the trophy.

After Logan Thomas blocked the Mustang punt, Antjuan Jones (2) scooped up the
loose ball and headed for a touchdown.

Continued From 1B
19 yards receiving for a well-
rounded game as Offensive
Player of the Week.
Defensively, junior Antjuan
Jones combined for 6.5 tackles,
one tackle for a loss and a fum-
ble recovery touchdown, earn-
ing the nod as Defensive Player
of the Week.
On Special Teams, defensive
end Logan Thomas blocked the
punt which Jones recovered for
the touchdown. Thomas also
had 3.5 tackles.
Scout Team Player Of the
Week Michael McTaw played
well in the "opposing" line-
backer/fullback position.
Offensively, Youyoute had
seven carries for 96 yards and
two touchdowns. He was four-
of-six in passing for 45 yards,
and suffered one interception.
Jake Mayer added 16 carries for
64 tough yards. Neuhauser had
a catch for 17 yards and Scott
Donaldson added one for nine
yards.
On the defense, Jones and
Thomas were assisted by
Devante Carter with 4.5 tackles
and a key interception to stop a
Mustang touchdown; Neu-
hausaer with 8.5 tackles to go
with his three sacks; David
Newcomb with seven tackles,
three tackles for loss and a sack;
.Tyler Alden with nine tackles
and two sacks; and Postene
Louisjeune with 8.5 tackles and
a sack.
Lakewood Ranch began the
game with an unusual twist, an
onside kick which took the
Wildcats by surprise. The Mus-
tangs recovered it at the Wildcat
39. Taryn Laws gained four
yards up the middle and had
five more added for a face mask
penalty. Laws gained two for a
first down, but then Neuhauser
and Newcomb combined for a
sack followed by a defensive
stop, forcing a Lakewood
Ranch punt.
The ball went only 18 yards,
leaving Hardee at its 23. Hardee
went three and out with a 31-
yard punt. Lakewood Ranch
went backward and ended up
punting again. Donaldson re-

turned the kick 10 yards and the
Wildcats started at their 36.
It took the rest of the first
quarter and into the second
stanza for Hardee to score. It
took a dozen plays to go the 64
yards. White went ahead of
Youyoute over right tackle for
the 9-yard tally. Martin Vega's
PAT made it a 7-0 game, just
eight seconds into the second
period.
Vega's kickoff went into the
end zone, making the Mustangs
start at their 20. A chop block
penalty stymied them and short
passes could not recover the
lost distance. A punt rolled dead
at the Hardee 12.
The Wildcats were going
along well on a 10-play drive
slowly by two penalties, when a
fumble turned the ball over to
Lakewood Ranch. Another
Neuhauser sack and Newcomb
tackle for loss and a sack by
Tyler Alden put the Mustangs at
three-and-out. The teams ex-
changed possession again in the
final minute before halftime.
Hardee led 7-0.
Lakewood Ranch took the
opening kickoff and started the
second half with a few plays
before a sack and minus
yardage forced a punt. The
teams exchanged punts again,
but Thomas blocked the
Mustang punt and Jones re-
turned it 18 yards for the score.

With a Vega kick, Hardee was

Late in the third period,
Hardee returned a punt to the
Lakewood Ranch 41. On the
first play from scrimmage,
Youyoute got a White block and
broke one tackle for a 41-yard
TD run. The Vega kick was
good. Hardee led 21-0.
In the fourth quarter, Hardee
appeared to let down just a bit.
The Mustangs had to punt on
their first series, but took the
next series for a score. Junior
quarterback Zack Self launched
a pass to Octavious Washing-
ton for a 39-yard TD play. The
Josh Kaestner kick was good. It
was 21-7.
A Hardee fumble gave the
ball back to Lakewood Ranch,
but incomplete passes gave the
ball back to Hardee on downs.
Hardee had to punt it away.
With two minutes left, a sack
pushed the Mustangs backward
seven yards. A pass to Washing-
ton made that up and more,
nearly 40 yards in all. Lake-
wood Ranch was knocking on
the Hardee door at the 7-yard
line. On a fourth-down pass into
the end zone, Carter stepped in
front of Washington and ran the
ball out to the 3-yard line.
Youyoute took a knee and ran
out the clock. Hardee won 21-7,

Swimmers

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee swimmers made
strides in the pool during the
annual Heartland Invitational
which prepares them for district
competition late this month.
In fact, the Hardee boys had a
shot at winning the invitational,
but had its best 400 freestyle
relay team disqualified by a
coaching error. "It's my fault. I
made the error in entering one
of these swimmers in five
events (there is a maximum of
two individual and .two relay
events per swimmer). It cost a
first-place finish," said Head
Coach Dick Daggett.
If they had the 26 points from
that event, the Hardee boy
could have finished with 294
points and first place. As it was,
they finished third of the eight
teams participating. North Port
was first with 389 points, fol-
lowed by Lake Placid at 385
and Hardee at 368. Behind them
were Bishop Verot at 306; Se-
e bring, 300; Avon Park, 202.50;
Frostproof, 169; and Okeecho-
bee 110.50.
Hardee girls were in the mid-
dle-of the pack. Verot won the
girls team title with 565 points,
followed by Sebring 491, Lake
Placid 375.50, Okeechobee
242.50, Hardee 208, North Port
174, Avon Park 98 and Frost-
proof 70.
In the first event, the 200
medley relay, both Hardee A
teams placed seventh of the
dozen teams involved. Soph
Kaitlyn Kennedy, junior Steph-
anie Driver, senior Brittany
Wiggins and frosh Savanna
Hagans combined for the girls
squad.
For the boys, junior Jake
Willis, soph Kyle Bodeck,
senior Isaac Vasquez and senior
Chris Reid were seventh, and
the Hardee boys B team of soph
Clay McNabb, senior Dusty


Strong In

Spears, soph Hunter Henderson
and senior Lee Cortez were
12th. i
Soph Kate Krause finished in
fifth place of 25 girls in the 200
freestyle. Classmate Kyndall
Robertson was 17th and senior
Mindy Stevens behind them.
Spears led the Hardee boys
with fifth of 23 swimmers in the
boys 200 free. Cortez wa:
ninth, Henderson llth and
McNabb 12th.
On to the 200 individual
medley (IM), where Wiggins
was 14th and junior Heather
Kouns 16th of two dozen girls
involved. For the boys, junior
Josh Rickett was fourth, with
Bodeck 12th.
In the fast-moving 50 free-
style, senior Kaitlin Justice was
fifth, Driver llth, junior Chel-
sea Goolsby 12th and Hagans
16th of the 25 girls swimming
that event.
Senior Tyler Robertson plac-
ed second, nine-tenths of a sec-
ond off the pace in the 50 free.
Soph Dylan Justice placed sixth
and Reid eight. Freshman Vin-
cent Hartman was 22nd of the
26 boys in that event.
Time out for diving. Hardee
has no girl divers and lost
points here. Hardee boys, senior
Sheldon Hartman, junior T.K.
Hogenauer and senior Bradley
Adcox were third, fourth and
fifth of the nine divers.
Back to swimming events
with the 100 yard butterfly.
Senior Katie Jernigan was
ninth, Driver l1th and Kouns
17th of the 20 girls in that
event. Rickett was second, just
over two seconds off the win-
ning pace. Vasquez was ninth of
the 14 swimmers in the boys
event.
Krause came back to place
fifth in the 100 freestyle, fol-
lowed by Hagans 13th of 26
swimmers. Tyler Robertson
again placed'second, an even

Local Bank Chairman Shares

Information On U.S. Economy


By JIM KELLY'
Of The Herald-Advocate
Bill Crews, chairman of
Wauchula State Bank, on
Tuesday provided this informa-
tion to The Herald-Advocate
regarding the U.S. financial
market situation.
Here are four points made
Tuesday by the American
Banking Association urging
Congress to pass an "economic
stabilization package."
1.) The Dow-Jones Indust-
rial Average fell 777 points in
one day and the loss of mar-
ket capitalization was over $1
trillion. The broader index, the
Wilshire 5000, which covers all
U.S. publicly traded stocks, fell


by 1021 points. As each point
equals $1 billion, the. loss in
market capitalization yesterday
was over $1 trillion.
2.) Every stock owner -
including pension plans, 401
(k)s, and union retirement
plans lost huge sums of
money because of the failure
of Congress to act. This means
greater uncertainty and turmoil
worldwide.
3.) The financial markets
will remain frozen. Money can
no longer get to the places
where it's needed most, includ-
ing businesses that need to roll
over existing debt to be sure to
have enough cash to pay suppli-
ers and meet payrolls.


4.) Consumer and business
lending will remain low. The
uncertainty by businesses and
individuals and the weakening
of the economy will force banks
to be even more careful about
making new loans.
Crews, however, said he
agrees with John Allison, chair-
man and CEO of Branch
Banking & Trust Co. based in
Winston-Salem, N.C. BB&T is
a $136 billion multi-state bank-
ing company with 1,500
branches in the mid-Atlantic
and southeast states.
Allison sent these 14 points
to all U.S. Congress members.
"We think it is important that
Congress hear from the well run

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.

financial institutions as most of
the concerns have been focused
on the problem companies. It is
inappropriate that the debate is
largely being shaped by the
financial institutions who made
very poor decisions.
Attached are the issues that
we believe are relevant from the
.perspective of healthy banks.
Your consideration of these
issues is greatly appreciated,"
said Allison.
Key Points on 'Rescue' Plan
From A Healthy Bank's
Perspective
1.) Freddie Mac and Fannie
Mae are the primary cause of
the mortgage crisis.These gov-
ernment supported enterprises
distorted normal market risk
mechanisms. While individual
private financial institutions
have made serious mistakes, the
problems in the financial sys-
tem have been caused by gov-
ernment policies including,
affordable housing (now sub-
prime), combined with the mar-
ket disruptions caused by the
Federal Reserve holding inter-
est rates too low and then rais-
ing interest rates too high.
2.) There is no panic on
Main Street and in sound finan-
cial institutions. The problems
are in high-risk financial insti-
tutions and on Wall Street.
3.) While all financial inter-
mediaries are being impacted
by liquidity issues, this is pri-
marily a bailout of poorly run
financial institutions. It is
extremely important that the
bailout not damage well run
companies.
4.) Corrections are not all
bad. The market correction
process eliminates irrational
competitors. There were a num-
ber of poorly managed institu-
tions and-poorly made financial
decisions during the real estate
boom. It is important that any
rtiles post "rescue" punish the
poorly run institutions and not
punish the well run companies.
5.) A significant and imme-
diate tax credit for purchasing
homes would be a far less


expensive and more effective
cure for the mortgage market
and financial system than the
proposed "rescue" plan.
6.) This is a housing value
crisis. It does, not make eco-
nomic sense to purchase credit
card loans, automobile loans,
etc. The government should
directly purchase housing
assets, not real estate bonds.
This would include lots and
houses under construction.
7.) The guaranty of money
funds by the U.S. Treasury cre-
ates enormous risk for the bank-
ing industry. Banks have been
paying into the FDIC insurance
fund since 1933. The fund has a
limit of $100,000 per client. An
arbitrary, "out of the blue" guar-
antee of money funds creates
risk for the taxpayers and sig-
nificantly distorts financial
markets.
8.) Protecting the banking
system, which is fundamentally
controlled by the Federal
Reserve, is an established gov-
ernment function. It is com-
pletely unclear why the govern-
ment needs to or should bail out
insurance companies, invest-
ment banks, hedge funds and
foreign companies.
9.) It is extremely unclear
how the government will price
the problem real estate assets.
Priced too low, the real estate
markets will be worse off than
if the bail out did not exist.
Priced too high, the taxpayers
will take huge losses. Without a
market price, how can you
rationally determine value?
10.) The proposed bankrupt-
cy "cram down" will severely
negatively impact mortgage
markets and will damage well
run institutions. This will pro-
vide an incentive for homeown-
ers who are able to pay their
mortgages, but have a loss in
their house, to take bankruptcy
and force losses on banks.
(Banks would not have received
the gains had the houses appre-
ciated). This will substantially
increase the risk in mortgage
lending and make mortgage
pricing much higher in the


future.
11.) Fair Value accounting
should be changed immediate-
ly. It does not work when there
are no market prices. If we had
Fair Value accounting, as inter-
preted today,.in the early 1990's
the United States financial sys-
tem would have crashed.
Accounting should not drive
economic activity, it should
reflect it.
12.) The proposed new
merger accounting rules should
be deferred for at least five
years. The new merger account-
ing. rules are creating uncertain-
ty for high quality companies
who might potentially purchase
weaker companies.
13.) The primary beneficia-
ries of the proposed rescue are
Goldman Sachs and Morgan
Stanley. The Treasury has a
number of smart individuals,
including Hank Paulson.
iHowever, Treasury is totally
dominated by Wall Street
investment bankers. They do
not have knowledge'of the com-
mercial banking industry.
Therefore, they can not be
relied on to objectively assess
all the implications of govern-
ment policy on all financial
intermediaries. The decision to
protect the money funds is a
clear example of a material lack
of insight into the risk to the
total financial system.
14.) Arbitrary limits on
executive compensation will be
self defeating. With these lim:
its, only the failing financial
institutions will participate in".,
the "rescue," effectively mak- -*"
ing this plan a massive subsidy
for incompetence. Also, how
will companies attract the lead-
ership talent to manage their
business effectively with irra-
tional compensation limits?

Perennials are the ones that
grow like weeds, biennials are
the ones that die this year
instead of next, and hardy
annuals are the ones that
never come up at all.

SEEDS
FROM-
THE
SOWER

Meter.neom.J
A deacon asked, "Pastor,
what happened to your face?"
"t-was concentrating on my
sermon while shaving," he
answered, "and I cut my
face."
"Next time concentrate on
your shaving," said the dea-
con, "and cut your sermon."
But here's a sermon that
doesn't need cutting. It's an
ocean of thought in a drop of
language. It means everything
to me.
Our Lord said, "For God so
loved the world, that He gave
His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have
everlasting life."
God loved and gave. We
believe and have. Could any-
thing be better?

"What if I accept this position and find I can't handle the responsibility "
"What If I marry and choose the wrong partner?" "What ifI fly to Paris and my
plane crashes over the Atlantic Ocean?"
What if there is an answer to the 'What ts'? As long as we continue to
function, we must make decisions daily; some carry little risk, others will change
the course of our Uves. Decision don't have to be stressful or anxiety ridden. God
can take away our worries; "...your love, O Lord, supported me...when anxiety
was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul" (Psalm 94:19).
Spend time with God at your house of worship this week. Talk with Him and
trust Him with your daily concerns. Why not let go of your 'What Its?

Mix together a handful of people, a failing banjo, mandolin,
autoharp, fiddle, harmonica, bass and a couple of guitars. Put them
under a balmy, fall evening sprinkled with stars and you've got a
night of delightful music at Highlands Hammock State Park.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, beginning at 7 p.m. the Friends of
Highlands Hammock will welcome the return of great mountain
ballads and traditional tunes from the Back Porch Revival's Old
Time String Band. Its sweet and sassy old time music is loaded
with bounce and humor. Playing both traditional tunes and some of
their own creations, the group will have your toes tapping.
Performing together for over 16 years, you may have seen
them at the prestigious Florida Folk Festival. In 1995, they were
honored by the folk music community as the top vocal group at the
Pioneer Florida Old Time Music Championship. In 1996, they took
honors again as the top Old Time Band in yearly competition held
in Dade City.
The band features Jim Robertson on the fiddle, guitar and lead
vocals. Jim's wife Melanie plays an old-time failing banjo. She
learned this unique style as an apprentice to a master artist under
the sponsorship of the Florida Bureau of Folklife and has been fea-
tured at the Florida Folk Festival and on National Public Radio.
Melanie's brother, John McClure, plays the mandolin, occa-
sional autoharp, and harmonica, and provides backup and lead
vocals. John's wife, Ginger, plays the Appalachian lap dulcimer.
Joining his aunts and uncles for the first performance with the'
family band on bass will be nephew Matthew Coltharp. Matt
Recently graduated from Sebring High School where he performed
with the jazz band. He is now a freshman at South Florida
Community College.
This will be a wonderful night of old-time string band music
under the stars. We encourage you to load up some lawn chairs and
blankets, grab a flashlight and pack a picnic basket or plan to pur-
chase dinner at the Hammock Inn. Admission to the concert is just
$5 per person, with accompanied children age 12 and under admit-
ted free of charge.
All concert proceeds benefit park improvement projects and
provide a wonderful way to relax and enjoy the arts. We hope that
you will join us for this unique musical experience, out here in the
Real Florida.

Something New For This Season
The Friends of Highlands Hammock is now offering a season
pass to all seven concerts for just $30 per person. Passes will be
available at the Ranger Station or at the entrance to the picnic area
the night of the first concert. Concert passes would also make a
great gift for anyone who enjoys music, the park or just being able
to do something fun every now and then. Call (863) 386-6094 for
more information.

matter To The Editor


2 Sheriff Candidates Are.


Using My Campaign Ideas


T ear Editor:
Since my defeat in the sher-
iff's election, I have been close-
ly monitoring the race in the
hope of learning more about the
two remaining candidates. To
my dismay I have noticed that
their campaign advertisements
have taken a distinct and similar
tone to my campaign initiatives.
Leading up to the primary,
these candidates have gone out
of their way to downplay my
philosophies of law enforce-
ment. Now that I am out of the
race, it appears as though they
have embraced my mindset and
made it their own. The only
apparent difference in the ads
seems to be a photo of someone
else!
For example, in the undersh-
eriff's recent "Five Point Plan"
he suggests the following:
1.) "Overhaul" of.the school
resource officer program. It
never appeared to be important
to him until I raised the red flag
and outlined a new approach;
2.) his "Networking with
'1Community Organizations"
sounds a lot like my "Quarterly
Town Hall Meetings";
3.) his point to "Implement
Internal Gang Violence Train-
ihg" is strikingly similar to my
,"Gang Awareness and Enforce-

ment Policy";
S4.) his "Shift Manpower to
'Narcotics Operations" was a
key point in my aggressive
approach to illegal narcotics
investigations;
5.) his suggestion to "En-
hance Citizens Advisory.
Board" bears a similar resem-
blance to my "Neighborhood
Watch Program initiative which
included a Citizeps-on-Patrol
(COPS) division!
And here is the best one of
all: using my campaign slogan
to address the community! He
says, ". . help forge the new
direction of the sheriff's
office." When you have a
chance, take a look at that big
billboard in Bowling Green and
on all of my campaign materials
which read, Thomas Santarlas
for "A New Direction in Law,
Enforcement!" That is sad,
Arnold, at least you can think of
your own slogan!
The other candidate's appar-
ent newfound plan also closely
mirrors my approach. For
instance:
1.) Roger's "Reducing the
size and cost of the administra-
tion" and "Adding Four Deputy
Sheriffs" to the agency was
clearly detailed in my "Stream-
line the Administration" initia-
tive. The reallocation of monies
from those positions and hiring
more deputies was a key com-
ponent of my initiative!
2.) No one can dispute the
fact that I brought to light the
disparities in administrative pay
and discrepancies within the
operational budget. Interesting-
ly enough, this appears to have

become the foundation of hisi
campaign!
3.) Roger's approach to reor-
ganizing the detention division
certainly does sound familiar.
His intention to allow detention
deputies the ability to pursue
"Duo-certification" as law
enforcement deputies is almost
word-for-word with my initia-
tive except the spelling error.
"Dual Certification" was one
of my strategies to improve
employee morale while at the
same time increasing benefits to
the community.
4.) Now this next one really
takes the cake ... an advertise-
ment written in Spanish. Where
do you think he got that idea?
Funny thing though, he made
the same grammatical error that,
I made when I designed thel
Spanish language yard signs.
The phrase "Para Alguacil"
means "For Sheriff', but the
word "Alguacil" is a very for-
mal Spanish word of Mexican
dialect. It is equivalent to the
English word, "Sheriff" and'
only the Mexicans really under-
stand the translation! The main-
stream Spanish speaking His-
panics don't really recognize or
understand the word "Algua-
cil!"
In academic circles, I think
they would refer to this conduct
as plagiarism! Sooner or later
the good guys in Hardee
County are going to prevail.;
Unfortunately, later can't come
soon enough!

Remember When The


Storm Victims Were Us?


SBy C.J. MOUSER
SFr The Herald-Advocate
I have the front pages of four news-
Ippers hanging on the wall in front of
my desk. They've been there since I
moved into this house just over a year
ago. The headlines are about hurricanes.
The papers are all from Wauchula.
I lived in Wauchula for years, the
most notable being 2004, when three
hurricanes hit back-to-back-to-back, one
every other weekend for six weeks.
One of the front-page photos shows a
house with plywood over the windows
on either side of the front door. On the
left, in 12-inch letters, is written, "GOD
BLESS," on the right, "THIS HOME."
Other photos showed devastated
homes, roofless buildings, lengths of
landscape completely devoid of any
structures at all, power poles snapped
like matchsticks, overturned cars, and
four- feet of water standing in roadways.
Boy, does that take me back.
When Hurricane Ike hit the
Galveston and Houston areas earlier this
month, on Sept. 14, my first thoughts
were for my sister, who lives in Conroe,
some 80 miles from Galveston.
She's fine, I thought, she has good
sense, and she's tough.
But then, so am I, and in 2004 the
weather and Mother Nature beat me


-into a sniveling, whimpering mass of
useless mush.
I talked to my sister on the phone
and she reported that the house was
standing, but many trees were not. They
had water but no power, and later that
same day, they no longer had phones.
Call after call resulted in a recording
that proclaimed my calls could not be
completed. For some reason, I needed
to talk to her, not just once or twice a
day, but every 10 minutes or so, if pos-
sible. I was possessed. What was I look-
ing for? What did I need to hear?
I watched videos of the destruction in
Galveston and Houston, read every sin-
gle news item I could find. No one
mentioned Conroe. Of course they did-
n't the real news was in Galveston. I
racked up call after call, trying to reach
her cell phone first, and then the house,
and lamented that I didn't have her hus-
band, Mike's, cell phone number. I
called my other sister in Burnet, Texas,
clinging to whatever news she had, feel-
ing myself constantly on the verge of
tears.
"How does she sound?" I asked.
"Tired, but OK."
My brother, Jim, and my brother-in-
law, Bobby, were already in transit from
Burnet, bringing Dianne and her family
food, ice, gasoline and a generator when


finally, on Monday the 18th, I got the
following report from my sister Judy:
"I talked to her just a short while
ago. She has to drive around to find a
signal, but she got through. This time
she was standing in line for ice. She ...
she got emotional."
"She was crying?"
"Yes, she was. Apparently she had
just been checked to make sure she
wasn't taking more than her share, by
someone she had known for years."
Like a tide, tears surged from my
eyes and I felt such a rush of sorrow
and anger and sympathy that I had to sit
down.
Anybody who's been through such an
event knows that surviving the storm is
just the tip of the iceberg. It's the after-
math that can kill your hope, drown
your spirit, and wring your soul out like
a wet towel.
Needless to say, my dialing finger
went into overdrive, and that afternoon,
it paid off she answered the phone.
The second I heard her voice, tears
started anew and I was suddenly struck
mute.
How could I not know what to say?
How could I not know what to ask? I
had spent an hour on the phone trying

to find out if FedEx or UPS was deliv-
ering to her area. In the end, it turned
out that the U.S. Postal Service was the
only one still running.
Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor
gloom of night...
"What do you need?" I asked.
"Well, paper products are pretty hard
to come by," she replied.
Then we talked about the daily strug-
gle of living afterr such an ordeal ...
commiserated, swapped experiences.
Talked about primitive living, and heat,
and humidity, and tending to nature's
call in the bushes.
Judy was right; she did sound tired.
Her voice was almost monotone, auto-
matic, and then, like a gift, she giggled.
It felt like a 40-pound weight had been
lifted off my shoulders.
Together we-taughed senselessly for
a moment, about nothing in particular,
and I knew that I had found what I was
after.
She had wrapped herself in a cocoon
of misery, but deep inside I detected
that little glow of strength. Her ability
to laugh buoyed me, and while I knew
she would carry scars from Ike, I also
knew that she was going to be just fine.
