School Leaders Change; McCain Wins Here


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
True to tradition, Hardee
County voters ousted their two-
term superintendent of schools
on Tuesday night.
David Durastanti, a veteran
educator and administrator
here, got the nod over Dennis
Jones in what became the clos-
est race of the night. Still, it has
been 50 years since a superin-
tendent has been, granted a third
term, ending with H.B.
Dominick.
"I thank God and I thank all


Lanier


my family and friends who
worked so hard to make this
possible," a grateful Durastanti
said on Wednesday morning.
And as voters turned to
Durastanti for new leadership,
they also completed their re-
moval of sitting School Board
members, choosing newcomer
Teresa Crawford over incum-
bent Gina Neuhofer.
Earlier, in the August prima-
ry, voters rejected Tanya Royal
in favor of Mildred Smith. Both
Neuhofer and Royal served
only a single term.


County Commission incum-
bents faired much better this
election year, with just one of
their number being tossed out,
Gordon Norris. At the end of
balloting Tuesday, Minor
Bryant and Dale Johnson were
returned to office.
Terry Atchley won the battle
with Don Chancey for Norris'
seat.
For sheriff, voters picked
Arnold Lanier over Roger
Clark. "I am honored and
blessed to have been elected,"
Lanier said Wednesday morn-

ing.
Only the presidential election
drew more interest here. A total
of 7,267 Hardee Countians cast
a ballot in the sheriffs race,
compared to 7,438 for presi-
dent.
Despite strong public con-
cerns and emotions in the
school races, only the superin-
tendent's contest drew high
numbers, with 7,152 total votes.
In all, it was a record-setting
voter turnout for Hardee
County, noted Elections Super-
visor Jeff Ussery. Just over 63

percent of local voters marked a
ballot in this pivotal election
year.
In the presidential race, it was
an easy win for John McCain
over Barack Obama here, but
the state and nation chose
Obama for the country's highest
office.
For U.S. District 13 represen-
tative, Vern Buchanan won
handily here over Christine
Jennings, Don Baldauf and Jan
Schneider, as he did throughout
the district.
He garnered 4,667 ,votes in


Hardee County to Jennings'
2,177, Baldaufs 83 and
Schneider's 235.
For District 17 state senator,
J.D. Alexander gained another
term here and elsewhere, with
4,521 local votes to Scott
Thompson's 2,465.
Hardee County voters went
along with their statewide coun-
terparts in rejecting amend-
ments 1 and 8, saying no to
alien property rights and to
community college funding.

Collect Your


Haz-Waste

Free Disposal Saturday


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
Gather your household haz-
ardous waste and dispose of up
to 60 pounds of it for free!
This Saturday from 8 a.m. to
noon, residents can take their
hazardous discards to the land-
fill for environmentally safe
disposal. The quarterly "am-
nesty day" is a way to do so
without having to pay any fees.
Acceptable hazardous Wastes'
include garden pesticides, her-,'
bicides, insecticides, household
chemicals and cleaners, old
paint, oil, car batteries, trans-
mission fluid, antifreeze, fluo-
rescent light bulbs, pool chemi-
cals, wood preservatives and
stains, and polyurethanes.
Collecting hazardous waste


quarterly helps protect the envi-
ronment and avoids contami-
nating the landfill and its drain-
off waters. It also guards
against water contamination at
homesites caused by pouring
used or unwanted fluids onto
the ground.
You can also round up your
bottles, newspapers, cell phones
and other recyclables and take
them along.
There are some hazardous
items that are not accepted dur-
ing the free disposal day, such
as gas cylinders, ammunition,
explosives, radioactive waste,
biohazards or infectious waste.
Businesses that generate less
than 220 pounds of hazardous
waste per month are allowed to

Ministry Delivers

By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
"I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will "
never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will
never be thirsty." John 6:35.
Pastor Chuck Dixon of New Beginning Church in a
Bowling Green has been inspired by this Scripture
from the Holy Bible in many ways over the past few
years.
Six years ago, Dixon felt the calling to feed the
hungry people of this county when he began to work
with inmates in the Hardee County Jail.
"We would counsel these men in the jail, and help
them get spiritual healing to heal their inner wounds.
When we would visit their families, we would see a
great need at the homes of the women and children "w
who were going hungry," says Dixon.
He then began to collect nonperishable goods to
give to those families. When the local Sweetbay
heard about Dixon's attempt to feed the poor, it was
eager to help.
"Sweetbay gave us their baked goods that they had
on overrun. They were still good, fresh and the best 9
you could find in the store. It was like God was giv-
ing us the very best to take to the poorest folks in
the county," Dixon says. Pastor Ch

Hoodies Cause Chill


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The new dress code at Hardee
Senior High School met with a
chilly reception last week.
A provision prohibiting hood-
ies was tested on Tuesday as
cold weather prompted some
students to wear the* forbidden
garment despite the rule. Each
Fwas ushered to the school's
auditorium, where disciplinary
action was meted out in accor-
dance with the Student Hand-
book.
For most of the 89 youngsters
involved, that amounted to a
warning, Principal Mike Wilk-
inson said.
Then, on Wednesday of last
week, 33 students came to
school in hoodies. "Some of
them were repeaters who were
kind of pushing it," Wilkinson
said.
By Thursday, a number of
students mounted a protest of
sorts, wearing hoodies in defi-
ance of the dress code and the
enforcement efforts. Again,
they were taken to the auditori-
um for the disciplinary process.
Most Ohen returned to class.
Wilkinson said he was unsure
of the exact number who partic-
ipated in the protest, but he put
it at under 100.
On Friday, only one hoodie


appeared on campus, he said.
Wilkinson also noted that on
Friday some students presented
him with a petition seeking a
change in the dress-code rule.
"It was very well done, for the
most part. All in all, I think they
followed the right process for
that."
In fact, he added, he was
.about to attend a meeting with
staff members to discuss the
petition. "That doesn't mean it
will change," he said of the
dress code. "The bottom line is
that this is Schbol Board policy
right now, and we must enforce
School Board policy."
Wilkinson went on to explain
that the dress code changed last
May.
The following day after
School Board approval of the
new rules, every student at the
high school was given a copy of
the new dress code. Eighth
graders at Hardee Junior High
were provided with copies as
well, as they would become the
senior high's ninth graders in
the new academic year.
"The purpose was to get the
kids familiar with the new dress
code before the school year got
out, before they went shopping
for next year," he said.
Wilkinson also used the dis-
trict's ConnectEd phone system


to call each household to inform
parents directly as to the dress
code rules.
Then, he said, a video was
made and shown schoolwide
during morning announce-
ments, also in May. It gave, and
displayed, details of the new
clothing code.
Stories appeared in the news-
paper during the summer
months, Wilkinson added, and
then teachers reviewed the
Student Handbook in detail
with their classes when this new
year began.
Three weeks later, in orienta-
tion meetings with each class,
Wilkinson clarified the new
dress code once again.
"I really don't know what else
we could have done to inform
everyone," he said.
. Wilkinson pointed out that
the school's enrollment is close
to 1,300 students. Fewer than
100 were involved.
Though in years past rules
prohibiting hair lengths that
reached collars and facial hair
on boys or rules prohibiting
girls from wearing pants were
of an arbitrary nature, this dress
code rule has safety as a main
concern.
"It's really not a gang-related
issue," Wilkinson explained.
"It's safety and academics," he
said.
The principal noted students
use the hoods to cover their
heads, concealing their Ipod


earphones from teachers as they
"clock out" of class even
though seated at their desks.
They also use the hoods to
conceal their identities, either
from the direct sight of staff
members or from surveillance
cameras, meaning school offi-
cials cannot identify those
involved in an incident or those
who were witnesses to it.
"We see it as a potential safe-
ty issue," Wilkinson said of the
article of clothing.
Hoodies provide a mask of
sorts for troublemakers, and
inadvertently prevent witnesses
to an incident from being found.
Wilkinson said that students
are allowed into the cafeteria,
library or their first-period
classrooms before school starts
on cold days. "We don't expect
them to stand out in the cold,"
he said.
And if anyone cannot afford
an appropriate jacket, the
administration has offered to
help.
Often, however, it is merely a
matter of fashion. "Maybe they
have to look a little more, but it
can be done," the principal said.
of finding a jacket without a
hood. In fact, he said he did so
online last week.
"Sears, K-Mart, J.C. Penn-
ey's, they all have reasonably
priced jackets, even Burlington
Coat Factory in Lakeland," he
advised. "They can be found, if
you look."


ELECTION
Continued From 1A
got the nod in Hardee County
as they did statewide. Amend-
ment 2, the marriage amend-
ment, won with 84 percent of
the total vote here.
Each judicial candidate also
earned approval.
In the race for sheriff, Lanier
took 4,904 votes to Clark's
2,363, winning in every pre-
cinct. "I appreciate my support-
ers and helpers, they were great,
tremendous," Lanier said
Wednesday morning. "I could-
n't have done it without them."
Lanier added, "I look forward
to the challenges that lie ahead .
. to getting started in the direc-
tion that will accomplish the
goals we have set forth." Lanier
spoke of his five-point plan for
citizen patrols, a bolstered nar-
cotics task force, community
involvement and stiffer penal-
ties for criminals
Durastanti carried most pre-
cincts, for 54 percent of the
total vote to Jones' 46.
"We have a great school sys-
tem, and with all of us working
together I know we can make it
even better," he said early
Wednesday. "This is a big job, it
affects all the children in our
county, but when it all shakes
out, all we have left is our chil-
dren. They are the future," he
said.
And, he added, "Everybody's
child is precious."
Durastanti noted tough times
ahead for public education as
the state continues to cut fund-
ing levels.
The District 1 County
Commission race was the sec-
ond closest of the night, with
Bryant capturing 56 percent of
the vote to Donald Samuels' 44.
"Thank you to everybody,"
Bryant said Tuesday night at the
Elections Office. "We can keep
the progress going. I thank the
voters for their confidence in
me, and I will do the very best I
can.
"We have the opportunity to
be on the forefront of economic
development," he continued.
"We have a lot to offer other
counties don't. Working togeth-
er we can make Hardee County
a great place to live."
In District 3, Atchley took 61
percent of the vote to Chancey's
39. "I am extremely honored
and humbled to have won such
a victory, especially to have
been elected to a position that
has belonged to some of our
community's finest men,
Sammy Rawls, Maurice
Henderson, Benny Albritton
and others. It is an honor to
serve in that same position. I am
truly honored and humbled."
Atchley, speaking at the
Elections Office Tuesday night,
said he will focus on economic
development and strategic plan-
ning. "It's time to set the politics
aside," he said. "It's time to get
started working."
For District 5, Johnson
scored 59 percent of the vote to
Walter Olliffs 41. "Obviously,
when people vote for you like
that, it's a humbling experi-
ence," Johnson said Tuesday
night, also at the Elections
Office.
."But what comes with that is
an awful big responsibility, peo-
ple want you to do your best,"
he said. And he will work on
economic development with
that in mind, noting, "Hardee

Swimmers Prepare For Regional Meet


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Senior High
School swimmers rode the
wave of glory as they placed in
districts last week. The boy's
team finished runner-up and the
girl's team finished fourth out
of 12 competing schools.
The 17 -hour event began at 6
a.m. on Wednesday, and in or-
der to qualify for the evening
events each swimmer had to
compete in the 39-degree morn-
ing air and the Wildcats were
first in the water.
The girl's team had several
finishes. The first event was the
200 medley relay and coming in
fourth place were Kaitlyn Ken-
nedy, Brittany Wiggins, Savan-
na Hagans and Kaitlin Justice.
Next was the 200 freestyle with
Kate Krause in second ahead of
Wiggins and Kyndall Robert-
son.
In the 200 individual medley
Katie Jernigan finished 11th. In
the 50 freestyle Justice placed
second ahead of teammates
Chelsea Goolsby, Stephanie
Driver and Hagans. Next was
the 100 fly with Jernigan ahead
of Driver and Heather Kouns.
In the 100 freestyle Justice
and Krause finished fifth and


MINISTRY
Continued From 1A
Since then, Bread of Life has
grown in a full-blown ministry,
feeding many families and
homeless residents around the
area.
Dixon believes that being a
servant to those in need is the
real meaning of ministry, and he
practices this belief every
Sunday afternoon.
Bread of Life ministry sup-
plies needy families with high-
quality baked goods. All of the
items given to the poor are the
best selection of cookies,
breads, desserts, pastries, rolls
and other assorted staples and
treats.
"It is like Jesus with the fish
and bread. He touched the food
and made it multiply to feed the
community. The main thing
Jesus said was that when some-
one asks for a cup of cold water,
you give it to them," Dixon
says.
With such a great need for
food in this county, Dixon;
allows God to direct him to
where he should distribute the
baked goods.
"God basically tells me which
turn to make. Once I make that
turn, I drive really slow and He
tells me when I see someone to
stop, tell them who I am, give
them a business card and allow
them to pick out baked goods
from the car."
Although many folks around
the community have been
impacted by Dixon's caring
spirit and action ministry, he
claims that it is he who is con-
stantly touched and amazed by
the actions of the families in
need.
"Most people are really hum-
ble. If they don't need it, they
will tell you; not out of pride.
They will tell you to give it to
someone else who needs it. I
admire people for their humility
to do that."
Baked goods also can be
picked up at New Beginning
Church in Bowling Green, 5207
Mason Dixon Ave., at 12:15
every Sunday afternoon.

From The Heart
By David Kelly


DOES HOPE LIE IN A POLITICIAN?
Well, by now we should have a lot more elected officials, most
notably we should have a new president-elect. (I say "by now"
because this column was written on Oct. 27.)
Will the new president change the way you live your daily life,
really? Well, I guess a lot of that has to do with who got elected and
who you are. One thing, is for sure: Both candidates for president
have endorsed change in Washington D.C., although each has a


Inspiration Point

Pastor & Columnist


IS 5 MPH OVER THE LIMIT SPEEDING?
Is going only five 'miles over the speed limit really speeding?
Well, maybe I was going six over. But Allen and I needed a boost
to get to church on time.
Now, my friend Allen's theology is like a road atlas with pages
missing. We both know it; we laugh. Once again his words
launched a missing-page adventure: "If we make the next light, it
means God likes us."
If that were true, we needed God to like us for four lights in a
row.
Well, God liked us on the first light, according to the Book of
Allen 1:1. But I wasn't converted yet. So I asked: "What about the
people going the other way?"
Allen had the answer: "We'll see who.God likes best."
Second light we made it.
It's nice thinking God likes me better. So if Allen's theory is
correct, would that person driving the immaculate Escalade be
favored over someone driving a dented van with 186,000 miles?
That someone is me. And I just made light number three.
Allen, let's see if I can correct your theology. Kind of the why-
do-red-lights-happen-to-good-people quandary.
There are a lot of slices to this. Here's one: the Bible says,
,'Don't despise discipline from the Lord and don't lose heart when
He rebukes you. The person He loves He disciplines." The Bible
parallels this to a caring father disciplining a son he loves.
The Bible goes on to say, "God disciplines us for our good so
we may share in His holiness."
Encountering red lights in your life? Could it be you are expe-
riencing God's love? Could it be God desiring you to experience
riore of His holiness?
The Bible says, "God changes us from glory to glory." Want to
experience godly life change?
.Expect red lights. Godspeed.
Rick Leland, pastor of The Free Church, is a resident of Michigan
who holds a degree in Christian ministry and has served a two-
year apprenticeship with the Jerry Jenkins Christian Writers Guild.
His favorite Bible verse comes from 1 John 1:4, "These things we
write that our joy may be complete." His column is published in
nearly 150 newspapers nationwide.


quite different idea on what that change should be. Many fear if one
'party gets elected we are surely doomed. And others fear if the
other party gets elected we are equally doomed.
I recently read a newspaper article on how divided America
really is these days. He said that maybe we should just become two
nations, we being the Democrats and the Republicans. That does-
n't seem like a great idea to me. Maybe it does to some of you.
I do think that it is time for Americans to start really thinking
about who we send into office. Does it really not matter to you? It
should matter who you vote for on election day. Your vote should
make a difference.
Should it consume our daily activity, not unless you're called
to it. Should it cause us sleepless nights, pot really.
I believe there is a distinct difference in being responsible and
involved and being fanatical and unrealistic. So many people
involved in politics are involved for personal causes only. They
don't care what you think or how you think or why you think,
unless you think exactly like they do.
For all the Christians who are involved in politics, I think one
thing should be said. All your decisions should be to glorify God.
They should show that you love Him with all your heart, soul and
mind. That's a tough calling for any of us.
If you are a Christian I hope that today your security is just as
strong as it was before election day. If Barack Obama is president-
elect or if John McCain is president-elect, your hope lies in Jesus
Christ.
God is in control, not the Democrats or Republicans or any-
body else. Sure, money runs this world, we like to think, but does
it really?
So should we not be involved in anything, just sit back and let
God take care of everything? Well, that's pretty broad unspecific
language. I think we should do what God has called us to do. Some
of us are politicians, some are teachers, some are preachers, some
are farmers, some are pharmacists, some are grocery clerks, some-.,
bankers, some are woodworkers, some are grove caretakers, some'
are in law enforcement and on and on.
God has gifted each one of us with special gifts and abilities.
And when we come to know Him as Lord and Savior, He helps us
to use those gifts to bring Him honor and glory.
So forget all the campaign promises that will be broken short-
ly. Forget that gas is way too much to fill up the truck. Don't for-

get, but don't become involved in foolish controversies over them
or quarrels, the Bible says this is unprofitable and useless.
Instead Read Titus. Titus 2:11-14 says, "For the grace of God
has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to
renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-con-
trolled, upright and godly lives in the present age, waiting for our
blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and
Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from all
lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people for His own pos-
session w'ho are zealous for good works."
Trust in Jesus, have faith that He is who He says He is and did
what He says He did and is doing what He said He would do. May
God keep you and help you to love Him, for the great things He
hath done.

4A ,A HJH Football Season Over


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
"They worked real hard all
season and the hard work paid
off."
Acting Head Coach Mark
Carlton summed up the 2008
Hardee Junior High School
football season, which ended in
a conference championship
after beating Avon Park 22-12.
The Heartland Athletic Con-
ference is the only conference
exclusively for junior-high
level athletics in the state. The
junior Cats were tied with
Sebring and Lake Placid for the
. title, however after beating the
Red Devils last Tuesday Hardee
was 5-1 and both Sebring and
Lake Placid were 4-2, allowing
Hardee to win.
Carlton said of the game,
"We had a hard-fought win
against Avon Park. They im-
proved since we last played
them and luckily we had, too."
Throughout the game Carlton
said the line blocked well and
defensive players Vince Grims-
ley, Jesus Zuniga, Paul Gough
and Ledarius Camel maintained
a strong front.
Eighth grader Grimsley was
responsible for two touchdowns
and his classmate Aaron Barker
scored a touchdown securing
the lead.
Carlton said his players dealt
with the cold weather fairly
well, but passing was difficult
because of wind.
During the fourth quarter,
seventh-grade quarterback
Luke Palmer was pressured by
Avon Park defense and was hit
in mid-throw, causing the Red
Devils to gain an interception
that was returned to the 20-yard
line leading to an Avon Park
touchdown.
After the kickoff, the junior
Cats held onto the ball and ran
the clock out, making them the
conference champions.
"The Gatorade bath was real-
ly cold in 40-degree weather,"
said Carlton of receiving the
traditional coach honor after the


Coaches were (from left) Jason Clark, West Palmer, Mark Carlton, Stuart Durastanti and

Lozano Wins Pro Debut


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
In his first professional
match, Daniel Lozano found
victory.
The 18-year-old, 112-pound
Bowling Green native fought at
Port Charlotte's "Monster
Bash" against a 25-year-old,
113-pound Miami boxer who
,was a gold medalist in the mili-


tary.
The two went four three-
minute rounds in the light ban-
tamweight class, until Lozano
was named winner by a unani-
mous decision.
Lozano explained that in a
professional match the gloves
are smaller, no headgear is
allowed, and the fighter has to
be shirtless; which is the oppo-

site than what he is used to in
amateur matches.
He prepared for this fight by
sparring with other professional
boxers in Winter Haven and
Sarasota. Lozano also trained
by constantly practicing, hitting
the bags and running up to three
miles a day.
To make his debut unique, he
fought with golden gloves that
were specially ordered to match
his outfit. Lozano said it was a
good experience and that he
was not nervous, but his friends
and family were.
He dedicated his fight to Alex
Solis, who was his friend and
sparring partner for about 10
years. Lozano wore a T-shirt
with a picture of Solis on it into
the ring before his fight began.
Lozano was thankful to his
friends, family and pastor, who
came to the fight to support
him.

OLD-FASHIONIED CHECKERS
An area that has caught some attention at Cracker Trail
Museum in the past few months holds three simple pieces two
straight chairs and an empty nail keg turned upside down.
Those items are not as intriguing as the board that sits on the
top of the keg. A wooden board that is partitioned off with 64
squares, 32 of one shade of brown and 32 with another shade of
brown. These perfectly squared off sections are topped with move-
able wooden pieces which complete the necessary uflits for the
game of checkers.'
The positioning of the checkerboard atop an overturned keg is
reminiscent of the Wild West days, when it was not uncommon to
view this type of entertainment inside the confines of the general
store or even the town saloon.

COURTESY PHOTO
Timothy Perkins (left) and Walter Caleb Howze strategize
over the checkerboard.
Further research of the game of checkers, however, uncovered
deeper roots than one would imagine. A board that was similar to
the layout of modern-day checkers was found during an archaeo-
logical dig in the Middle East, and it was determined that it dated
back to 3000 BC. Obviously, it is impossible to determine what the
rules were for this particular game board or if it was even used for
a type of entertainment.
The next time this type of game board surfaced was in 1400
BC, when the game of Alquerque or Quirkat was being played
throughout Egypt. Early carvings have been discovered on the
walls of sacred temples. The game was very similar to modern-day
checkers in that the goal was to capture the pieces of the other
player.
Modem checkers had its birth in the 12th century AD, when
the French game Fierges was played, converting the rules and
game pieces of ancient Alquerque to an 8x8 chessboard with a
dozen pieces on each side. Thus, the game of checkers as we know
it had its beginning. It did not carry its present name, however, until
the game crossed the Atlantic to North America.
Tournaments began in 1847 and a world championship was
actually awarded. For the diehard checkers player, there are sets of
strict rules designed to challenge and encourage strategic play.
The wooden checkerboard with its two sets of brown and tan
wooden checkers that sits atop the inverted nail keg in the lobby of
Cracker TrailhMuseum was a gift to my dad from his 8-year-old.
grandson inrl-986. He always treasured the gift and kept it secure-
ly hidden away until his grandson visited. After the familiar ques-
tion, "Scotty, how about a game of checkers?" the board was
promptly removed from its resting place to a table in the living
room, where my son enjoyed a game of checkers with his grandpa.
It seemed that each time I watched them together my thoughts
would go back to Sunday afternoons in the mid 1950s when my
dad, at age 34, would pull up a chair in front of the couch, position.
the checkers on the board, and begin a game with his grandfather,
,who was 80 years old. Sometimes there would only be one game
played because this grandfather and grandson were two of those
previously mentioned "diehard checker players." Each turn was
methodically considered, so it usually took quite some time for
each one to make his move.
It has been surprising to me to find the number of youngsters
who come into the museum who have never played checkers
before. On the other hand, there are those who will sit down in the
two straight chairs, positioning themselves over the checkerboard,
confident that each one of them will outplay the other.
Cracker Trail Museum is a great place to get caught up on the
history of Hardee County. If you haven't been in quite a while,
won't you consider a trip back in time and view some of our trea-
sures?
Or, better yet, bring your grandson for an old-fashioned game
of checkers.


If you haven't got anything
nice to say about anybody,
come sit next to me.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION NOTICE OF APPROVAL

OF CONCEPTUAL RECLAMATION PLAN
MODIFICATION
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its
issuance of a conceptual reclamation plan modification (CFI-SP-CPB) to CF Industries,
Inc. (CF), Post Office Box. 1549, Wauchula, Florida 33873 under Chapter 378, Part III,
Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter 62C-16, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). The
conceptual reclamation plan modification is for CF's South Pasture Mine. The South
Pasture Mine is located immediately south of State Road 62 in Hardee County, Florida.
The major changes included in this modification are limited to an approximately
1,012 acre area within and immediately adjacent to reclamation sub-parcels W1 Phase I
and W1 Phase II. Mandatory reclamation sub-parcels W1 Phase I and W1 Phase II are
located within the limits of the South Pasture Mine property in Sections 25 and 36,
Township 33 South, Range 23 East and Sections 30 and 31, Township 33 South, Range
24 East in the Peace River Watershed, Class III waters. The site has been mined by CF
and is subject to mandatory phosphate reclamation requirements under Chapter 378,
F.S. and Chapter 62C-16, F.A.C.
This conceptual reclamation plan modification is a modification of the following
items: reclamation timetables, activities, and landforms within reclamation sub-parcels
W1 Phase I and W1 Phase II. The modifications are requested to allow CF to reclaim the
W1 Phase I and Wi Phase II reclamation sub-parcels to a water resource/water supply
development project known as the Aquifer Recharge and Recovery Project (ARRP). The
requested, revisions to the post-reclamation land use and cover and the post-reclamation
topography and drainage directly correspond to reclamation of the ARRP.
The Department hereby gives notice of its issuance of a conceptual reclamation
plan modification (CFI-SP-CPB) to CF Industries, Inc.
The Department's file on this matter is available for public inspection during
normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal
holidays, at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and
Minerals Regulation, 2051 East Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760, Telephone:
(850) 488-8217.
The conceptual reclamation plan modification is granted unless a sufficient
petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57;
F.S., as provided below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action
may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected
by the Department's action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an
administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be fi4d with the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for
extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the
request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a
motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension
of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other
persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome-of the
administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding.
Intervention will be permitted only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with section 378.212, F.S., petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions

subsection 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. '
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency

Highlands County author Casey Wohl, whose trademark is
The Getaway Girl, will have a book signing Thursday, Nov. 13,
from 5 to 7p.m. at Cats On Main in Wauchula. Refreshments will
be served.
She has written two books, "Girls Getaway Guide to Key
West: Leave Your Baggage at Home" and "Girls Getaway Guide to
Orlando: Leave Your Your Baggage at Home." The books are
$13.95.
Her inspiration to write books like these occurred recently
when she went through a tough year personally and professionally,
with a divorce and job loss. "I found a tremendous amount of
solace in traveling with my girlfriends. I love the adventure of
experiencing new cities. It is almost like a re-birth for me. I also
love re-visiting cities, where you can re-visit old memories and
create new ones at the same time."
The Orlando book was published in 2007 and the Key West
book in 20 08.
Casey attended Rollins College in Winter Park just outside
Orlando. She and her two college roommates started planning


for cash in The North Front Door

girls' weekends in Orlando "to go back and visit campus, re-live
college stories and create new memories."
She loves her family and friends and their importance, but
does not have any sisters and realized during the "most difficult
year of my life that my girlfriends are irreplaceable."

Some of my favorite authors growing up were.Mark Twain,
Ernest Hemingway, Robert Ruark, and Herman Melville. My
favorite sportswriter was Wauchula native Tom McEwen, sports
editor of The Tampa Tribune. "Life With Larry Thompson" was a
great personal column in the Miami Herald. Gene Gallant of the
Ocala Star-Banner was a fine outdoor writer. Tom Palmer of the
Lakeland Ledger is a fine outdoor writer.
I love the writings of Patrick D. Smith, author of "A Land
Remembered" and other novels based in Florida.
I once interviewed and wrote articles in the Miami Herald on
Catherine Marshall LeSourd, author of "A Man Called Peter," and
Theodore Pratt, author of "The Barefoot Mailman." Peter Marshall
was a U.S. Senate chaplain. The mailman was a real story of a man
who delivered mail barefoot while walking along the Atlantic
Ocean beach in southeast Florida.
Pratt lived in Palm Beach County, as I recall, and moved sev-
eral times further west toward the Everglades to get away from
neighbors. He referred to condominuims as "filing cabinets for
human beings."
Patrick Smith also has nostalgia for Florida the way it used to
be before developers drained the land and harmed the environment
in attracting new residents to the state.
A few years ago I fell in love with the many western novels
written by Louis L'Amour. They always had happy endings.
Some favorite TV shows have included "Gunsmoke," "Have
Gun Will Travel," "Bonanza," and "Dallas."
Some of my favorite movie stars, as a boy included Tarzan,
Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and the Lone Ranger.

Bill Crews, board chairman of Wauchula State Bank, spoke to
the American Legion Monday night about "The Sub-Prime Story
and How It Happened."
He said, "The Community Reinvestment Act of CRA was
enacted by Congress in 1977, revised in 1995 and amended in
2005. It was intended to encourage banks to meet the credit needs
of low income, minority of distressed neighborhoods. Many of
these loans were guaranteed by the Federal National Mortgage
Association (Fannie Mae) and the Federal Home Loan Mortgage
Association (Freddie Mac) then sold to investment banks packaged
in bundles and sold to U.S., European and Asian banks.
"During the housing bubble of 2000-2005, interest rates
soared and many people could not make their payments on these
sub prime loans and defaulted on them. When the bubble burst, the
investment banks found themselves holding these non performing
bonds.
"Investment banks like Merrill Lynch and Bear Stearns pack-
aged their sub-prime loans into bonds (CDOs Collateralized Debt
Obligations) and sold them to banks and pension funds all over the
world. The sub-prime based bonds were rated Triple A by rating
agencies such as Moody's and Standard and Poor's.
"When the economy started cooling down in 2005-06, these
bonds secured by past due sub-prime loans went into default. The
banks holding these bonds had to write down and charge off bil-
lions of dollars because of non-performing bonds.
"The Treasury stepped in and the bailout began. Fannie Mae,
Freddie Mac, Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank
of America all received capital injections in the billions."
Crews stated that most commercial banks are in good shape.
The economy will not recover overnight.

State Sen. J.D. Alexander recently praised Florida Hospital
Wauchula and non-profit rural health service in general. He said 75
to 80 percent of the state budget is spent on healthcare and educa-
tion. About 10 percent is spent on transportation and roads, and
about 10 percent on prisons and law enforcement.
He said Floridulhas a large older population and that many pre-
scription drugs areiexpensive.
"Florida has to livevithin its means, just like families and
businesses. We face several years of tough work in the nation and
state. We have to take a fresh look at how we live. We need to look
at how we spend our money at all government levels. We need to
make every dollar count," said Alexander.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Look around you: Every-
thing you see is God's -
the heavens and above and
beyond, the Earth, and
everything on it.
Deuteronomy 10:14 (ME)
FRIDAY
Whosoever shall confess
that Jesus is the Son of God,
God dwelleth in him, and he
is in God. And we have,
known and believed the love
that God hath for us: God is
love; and he that dwelleth ir
love, dwells in God, and Goc
in him.
I John 4:15,16, (KJV)
SATURDAY
Let the seas and everything
in it shout; let the world and
everyone in it sing. Let the
rivers clap their hands; let
the mountains sing for joy.
Let them sing before the
Lord, because He is coming
to judge the world. He will
judge the world fairly; He will
judge the people with fair-
ness.
Psalm 98:7-9 (NCV)
SUNDAY
Now Christ is the visible evi-
dence of the invisible God.
He existed before creation
began, for it was through
Him that everything was
made, whether spiritual or
material . In fact, every
single thing was created
through, and for, Him.
Colossians 1:15a-16b (PME)
MONDAY
Kindness makes a man
attractive. And it better to be
poor than dishonest. Rever-


ence for God gives life, hap-
piness and protection from
harm.
Proverbs 19:22a, 23 (TLB)
TUESDAY
And behold, there arose a
great storm on the sea . .
out Jesus was alseep. And
they woke Him ... He said,
"Why are you so afraid, 0
men of little faith?" Then He
arose and rebuked the
winds and the sea and there
was a great calm. And the
men marveled, saying,
"What sort of man is this,
that even winds and the
seas obey Him?"
Matthew 8:24a,25a,26-27 (RSV)
WEDNESDAY
God said, "Take a look at the
mighty hippopotamus. I
made it, just as I made you.
It eats grass like an ox. It is a
prime example of God's
amazing handiwork."

The Department's file on this matter is available for public inspection during
normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) the name,
address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone

,Wildcats Lose 37-30 Thriller To Cape Coral Seahawks


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats out-
played the Cape Coral
Seahawks for the majority of
'the game but an all-state per-
formance by Seahawk Jaylen
Watkins and key mistakes
doomed the Cats to a 37-30
loss.
The defeat dropped the Cats
to a 4-4 season record. Hardee
will be an underdog Friday
night in Arcadia to the district
rival DeSoto Bulldogs.
The 3-A Cats outgained the
5-A Seahawks, rushing for 57
carries and 318 yards compared
with 26 carries and 169 yards
for Cape Coral. The Seahawks
completed 6 of 12 passes for 94
yards while Hardee hit on 2 of 9
for 19 yards and threw one
interception. Hardee made 17
first downs and Cape Coral 4.
Hardee coaches named Jarri-
us Lindsey offensive player of
the game. He had 22 carries for
113 yards and two touchdowns.
Quarterback Ezayi Youyoute
had 21 carries for 113 yards and
a touchdown.
The Seahawks struck for pay-
dirt on the first play of the game
as Watkins took the opening
kickoff on a reverse lateral and
raced up the east sidelines and
cut across midfield for a 94-
yard touchdown. Kenton Beal
kicked the extra point 19 sec-
onds into .the game before a
stunned smaller than normal
Hardee crowd on a cool
Halloween night.
Lindsey gained seven yards
on the first Hardee play from


their own 20. An errant pitchout
from the quarterback to
Kelsheem White resulted in a
fumble recovery by Cape Coral
at the Wildcat 30.
Watkins passed to Larry Gary
for 21 yards, and Watkins then
ran to the Hardee 1 where he
fumbled and Hardee's Alex
Lanier recovered in the end
zone for a touchback.
Hardee then began an 80-
yard drive to tie the game
behind the running of Lindsey,
Youyoute and White and two
Seahawk penalties. Lindsey
scored from two yards out, and
Martin Vega kicked the extra
point with 3:50 left in the first
quarter.
Midway the second period
Cape Coral scored on a 33-yard
drive following a short Hardee
punt that resulted in a 30-yard
field goal by Beal for a 10-7
Seahawk lead with 6:10 left in
the half.
Several play later quarterback
Youyoute fumbled the snap at
the Seahawk 40 and Cameron
Hall of Cape Coral returned the
ball to the Hardee 25.
Three plays later Collin
Saring threw a 24-yard touch-
down pass to Prince Holloway,
and a two-point pass attempt
went of. bounds, and the
Seahawks led 16-7 with 3:06
left.
The Wildcats took over at
their 20 following a kick into
the end zone and failed to get a
first down, but Carson Davis
made a fine 48-yard punt that
rolled dead at the Seahawk 27.

Seahawk pitchout was recov-

Youyoute faked a handoff to
Lindsey and ran ,the ball over
tight tackle for a 13-yard
Wildcat touchdown. Vega's
kick was good, and the scrappy
Wildcats had closed the gap to
16-14 with 1:08 left in the half.
But then double trouble
struck, as on the second offen-
sive play Watkins ran up the
middle of the Hardee defense
for a 61-yard touchdown. Beal
converted for a 23-14 Seahawk
lead with 52 seconds left.
White returned the kickoff 22
yards to the Hardee 23. On the
first play Youyoute threw a pass
interception to Cameron Hall
who returned the ball 18 yards

to the Wildcat 24. Two plays
later Watkins completed an 18-
yard pass to Erik Eaton to the
Wildcat 6.
On the next play Watkins
eluded the pass rush, scrambled
right and passed 6 yards to
Larry Gary for a touchdown
with only 9 seconds left in the
half. Beal converted, and Cape
Coral led 30-14 over a stunned
Hardee team and crowd.
The Wildcats, however, had a
good week of practice and
showed a lot of fight and char-
acter in the second half.
In the third period a Seahawk
punt was downed at the Hardee
3 where the Cats began a 97-
yard scoring drive. Youyoute
gained 22 at right end. On
fourth down and inches at the


Cat 34 Lindsey gained six yards
and a first down. Youyoute was
sacked for a 10-yard loss but
later ran for 16 and a first down
at the 50. Lindsey, White and
Youyoute continued to make
yardage on the ground. White
gained 17 yards on a pitch left,
and Youyoute kept over left
tackle for 13 and a first down at
the Cape Coral 1.
Lindsey then ran up the mid-
dle for a one-yard score. White
then ran over left tackle for a
two-point conversion as the
Wildcats closed the lead to 30-
22 with 1:48 left in the third
period.
Hardee continued to make
short kickoffs the rest of the
game after Watkins shocked the
Cats with the opening play run-


back of 94 yards. Hall returned
the kickoff 6 yards to the
Seahawk 45.
On fourth down, early in the
fourth quarter, Cape Coral
faced a fourth and a half yard at
the Wildcat 45. The interior of
the Hardee defensive line pene-
trated as Watkins fumbled the
snap on an attempt up the mid-
dle. However, the Cats failed to
seal off the ends and Watkins
ran around left and untouched
for a 45-yard touchdown that
stunned Hardee. Beal's extra
point kick extended the lead to
37-22 with 11:52 left in the
game.
The Cats refused to fold.
Brek McClenithan returned the
kickoff 19 yards to the Hardee

"Being a farmer is a pretty big responsibility. But there's a lot
of satisfaction in providing families with food products-like
the oranges we grow. Phosphate, found right here in Florida,
helps them grow better. It's a natural product, so that's
why it works so well. In fact, Florida provides 75 percent of the
phosphate needed by farmers across America. The folks who
send us phosphate have a big responsibility too-the land.
They return it to nature for future generations, they plant
trees and they build parks. I can respect that."

Rise & Shine

40 YEARS IN THE WILDERNESS
Moses, growing up in Pharoah's place, was probably unaware
of what his people were going through as slaves. Luxury will make
you blind like that.
Then, one day, when it finally dawned on him, he lashed out
in righteous indignation (Exodus 2:11-3:22).
That didn't do any good, either. God sent him into the desert
to feed sheep for 40 years.
What'kind of leadership training was this? Pretty good, as it
turned out.
God wanted Moses to understand that any liberating of the
Israelites would be God's business from beginning to end. The last
little bit of ambition and righteous indignation had to be utterly
squashed until the Lord had a man ready to obey orders without
question.
It sometimes takes that long for a man or woman to become
silent, respectful and humble before the Lord and ready to lis-
ten. Before that time, all any of us can do is get in God's way and
be a bristly, cranky burden for others to bear!
After those 40 years, the Lord appeared to Moses and com-
missioned him to return to Egypt and confront Pharoah. How did
Moses respond to this commission? He replied, "Who am I that I
should go into Pharoah and that I should bring forth the children of
Israel out of Egypt?"
Quite a change! The 40 years had done their work!
God is very patient and is never in a hurry. He has a wonder-
ful plan for each of our lives, but He also wants to change us so that
we "fit in."
Can we wait, endure our training classes and be ready for duty

them, it was a sad reunion.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to all the family. Floy
was a lovely lady and she will
be missed. It was always a plea-
sure to visit with her at Randy

would be attending a cookout.
On a happy note, Jake Willis,
Chris Reid and T.K. Hogenauer
qualified to attend the district
swim meet in Winter Haven.
T.K. was in the diving competi-
tion and Jake and Chris in
swimming. Congratulations to
Jake and Chris as they will
attend regionals in November.
Also, I heard that Jake and
Willie each got a deer! Also,
Willie Godwin sprained his
ankle and was on crutches for a
couple of weeks. Glad he is
improving.
Bud, Connie, Ashlee and
Jamie went hunting in Sanders-
ville. Bud had discussed com-
ing up to Sylva to spend one
night but when Ashlee was off
from school for a couple of
days, that took first. place and
being with family is much more
important than being with
cousins, or that is my feeling!
They had a good time and, I
hear, good luck hunting.
Every store you go into up in
the Sylva area had a dog. They
ranged from small to giant!
They just reclined on the floor
and it was up to the customer to
walk around'them. It was really
dog country in that area, and not
the "Georgia Bull Dawgs!"
We planned on leaving Sylva
on Wednesday but changed our
minds and were leaving on
Tuesday, the 28th. We either
waited too long or just had per-
fect timing. Tuesday morning
when I got up it was snowing!
It was a beautiful Christmas-
card scene. The hills and trees
were covered. There were 4-5
inches on the hills and lawn.
Because we were busy taking
pictures we left the campground
later that morning than we had
planned, but it was well worth
it!
We planned on going to
Waldo on our way home to a
gospel sing but the cold weath-
er in Florida stopped us. I had
bundled up in coats long
enough. Sam and Arden Rawls
went to the sing and had a good
time.
There seems to be an unusual
number of birthdays in October.
Earl Bargeron, Charles Abbott,
Sylvia Clemons, who is back in
Sebring and working, and
Jerald Abbott all celebrated big
numbers! Jerald had a super
75th birthday party with deli-
cious food. His son, Michael,
and Walt Beattie were the bar-
becue chefs and did a super job.
Bim Davis is in Florida
Hospital in Wauchula for rehab.
He stepped off his equipment
trailer the wrong way and broke
his leg. He has a long rod in the
upper leg. Please pray for Bim
and go visit him. It does get
-mighty lonesome in a hospital.
Brandi Roberts Basey has a
full scholarship to South Flori-
da Community College. She
will begin full-time in January.
Congratulations, Brandi, educa-
tion is more important now than
ever before. You cannot make it
in today's economy without that
college diploma.
Don't forget the big Fort
Green Baptist yard sale will be-
gin Nov. 12 at the Rawls Barn
on Highway 62.

Combee Was Speaker For 90-POUND CATFISH

Meth-Free Project A


The Meth-Free Project meet-
ing held Oct. 13 was considered
a success.
Many Hafdee County resi-
dents who have been directly or
indirectly affected my metham-
phetamines attended, including
grandparents, youths, married
couples and singles. They were
considered wprthy of salute
because it takes courage to
show up at a community affair
of this sort.
People were looking for
answers, help, comfort and,
most of all, the ability to estab-
lish meaningful relationships to
combat this deadly enemy.
They were looking for others
who would pray with them and
lead, guide and direct them in
their quest to beat the onslaught
of the failures caused by their
family member's use of meth.
Libbie Combee from the
Meth-Free Project/Leland Fam-
ily Ministries of Polk County
was the speaker for the evening..
She shared her testimony and
journey, spoke about where she


and her family are today and the
origin of the Meth-Free Project.
She also share its resources an
encouraged many to not give up
hope.
The Word of God says in
Hosea 4:6 that God's people are
destroyed for lack of knowl-
-..e. Combee says there is
.more to that Scripture. she indi-
cated that children of God have
the responsibility to get the
knowledge to combat the
enemy. She encouraged every-
one to read the entire passage..
Joanne Schock, the local
Hardee County leader for the
Meth-Free Project, believes that
resources are going to become
available for those seeking the
knowledge about this drug. It is
commonly referred to as the
"End-Time Drug." Schock also
encourages Hardee County res-
idents to get involved with the
fight against meth and follow
the newspaper for upcoming
meetings. For questions or
feedback, call her at (863) 245-
3062.

WEATHER WARNING SIREN TEST

The City of Wauchula is committed to protection of its residents; therefore we have
updated the City's weather warning siren. We will be conducting a test of the system on
Friday, November 14th at 12 o'clock Noon for one full minute. Residents are encouraged
to inform family and friends of the test and to take the opportunity to review your house-
hold severe weather plan. Due to the recent tornados in Central Florida we encourage
each of our citizens to be aware of the danger that these storms can cause.

If you hear the siren at any other time, and there has not been an advance test date noti-
fication such as this, you should assume that an actual weather emergency is in progress
and seek shelter immediately. The siren will continue to sound in 30-second blasts until
the danger has passed. 11:l

Tommy asked his mother,
"What was the name of the
last station where the train
stopped?"
"Don't bother me," she
cried. "Can't you see I'm
playing cards?"
"But," said Tommy, 'that's
where little brother got off."
There are some parents who
don't care where their chil-
dren go here or hereafter. That
leads to shame aindsorrow.
Parents, be attentive. Your
children need attention.
Be available. Be there when'
they need you.
Be affectionate. Live love.
Be aspiring. Find the Lord
and lead your children to Him.
Then "bring them up in the
training and instruction of the
Lord."


Monumental Mirror
Stretching from the Washington Monument to the Lincoln
Memorial is the Reflecting Pool, one of the required stops for any
tourist on a trip to our Nation's Capital. What is its purpose?
It's more than a monumental mirror...it inspires reflection!
We can reflect on the challenges of our democracy and the
responsibilities of our freedom; we can recall the spiritual
foundation on which our institutions rest.
Those reflections can point us toward our chosen place of
worship. Next Sabbath, renew your commitment to the religious
convictions which helped shape our history...and will undergird
our destiny.

'Cats And 'Dawgs Clash For 88th Time


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of Peace River oppo-
nents go at it again, as the
DeSoto Bulldogs host the Hard-
ee Wildcats in the 88th meeting
of the oldest football rivalry in
the state.
Again this year it's a must-
win for the Wildcats against the
Bulldogs, which have a 2-0 dis-
trict record, with wins over
Sebring and Braden River and a
game this week against Avon
Park. Hardee is 2-1, with wins
over Avon Park and Sebring
and a loss to Braden River.
Hardee goes to Arcadia with
a 4-3 record, while DeSoto is at
5-2, sporting wins over Braden
River, Port Charlotte, LaBelle,
Bayshore and Sebring and loss-
es to Fort Myers Dunbar, Lake
Wales and, in the preseason
Classic, to Palmetto.
The Bulldogs have steadily
improved since the early sea-
son, using a variety of receivers
and rushers such as Marcus
Shaw, Derick Hilliard, Darion
Shine, Jerrell Ezell and Antonio
Washington. Defensively, look
for Cameron McQuay to have
a big night.
Hardee has a strong backfield
in Jake Mayer, Kelsheem
White, Antjuan Jones and ver-
satile quarterback Ezayi You-
youte. Defensively, Logan
Thomas, David Newcomb and
Tyler Alden lead the Wildcats.
The Florida High School
Athletic Association mandates
which week district games can
be played, so the traditional
end-of-the-season DeSoto-
Hardee encounter is no longer
possible. Hardee will finish the
regular season at home (Senior
Night) Nov. 14 against power-
ful Ridge Community High,
which upset No. 4 Lake Wales
last weekend.
Hardee wants to get back on
the winning side in the 88-year


rivalry between the 'Cats and
the 'Dawgs. DeSoto won 17-0
last year, ending an eight-year
Wildcat streak which had start-
ed in 1999. Hardee holds a 53-
29 advantage in the age-old bat-
tle between these two teams
which began officially in 1923,
two years after Hardee became
a county, and had established its
own high school.
They actually played as Wau-
chula and Arcadia teams as far
back as 1909 and 1917 before
they became separate counties.
There have been five ties over
the years.
Two games were played in
the first years, one at the begin-
ning and one at the end of the
season. DeSoto won both
games in 1923 and the teams
split games in 1924.
At game's end, the Walter F.
"Buck" Carlton trophy is
awarded to the winning school.
Symbol of the long-standing
competition between these
schools, the Carlton trophy was
first presented in 1965 in honor
of the DeSoto manager and avid
fan who had died in 1964.
The trophy was trophy was
retired in 1972 after DeSoto had,
three consecutive wins, a stipu-
lation of the original presenter..
The trophy was reactivated in
1982 by Bruce and Sue Carlton
and won by Hardee in 1982,
1983 and 1984. DeSoto and
Hardee alternated it in 1985 and
1986. The Bulldogs ran off a
string of victories from 1987
through 1992.
The Wildcats had a five-year
win streak, only to have DeSoto
come back to win 20-14 in
1998. Hardee claimed the Carl-
ton trophy from 1999 through
2006. DeSoto took it last year
and hopes to start its own win
streak.
Another presentation at the
Hardee-DeSoto game is the
Bob Martin Golf Challenge tro-


For the week ended Oct. 30, 2008:

By GAYLE KNIGHT
For The Herald-Advocate
For Hardee Senior High School
student Amanda Rigney, 15, learning
Florida history is a fun and exciting
hands-on experience. Being on the
cover of a soon-to-be published book
is, in her opinion, a terrific way to earn
a A+.
Amanda, a sophomore at HHS, has
had the opportunity to travel around
the state and participate in re-enact-
ments depicting
this state's his- s
tory. From suit- O _n Target
ing up in space
gear at NASA
to learning about the sponge industry
in Tarpon Springs to dressing as a
Spanish Conquistador, Amanda has had
quite a trip!
One especially memorable experi-
ence was "becoming" a nurse during
the Civil War! This event involved
spending the night in a tent at Fort
Taylor in the Florida Keys.
"That was probably my favorite
part," Amanda says. "We got to learn
the games and dances of this period in
history. I liked having a lot of fun and
meeting new kids."
Another thing she is anticipating as a
result of all these experiences is com-
pleting her lessons and passing the test
to become a licensed scuba diver.
All this came about as a result of a
medical problem.
In junior high, Amanda was diag-
nosed with a heart murmur and was
referred to Dr. Jack Powell, a pediatric
cardiologist. Powell has an avid inter-
est in history, and was writing about
Florida. Amanda was chosen to portray
one of the characters in his book
"Original Time Travelers' Guide of
Florida." She is eager for the book to
be published so she can share all she
has learned.
Amanda is a bundle of personality
who is intent on being the best at all
she does. As' an elementary student she

was a member of the Hardee County
Players and had the starring role in the
production of "Alice in Wonderland."
There were "tons of lines" to learn, but
Amanda, who likes to be challenged,
proved she was up to the task.
In junior high Amanda maintained a
busy schedule, with National Junior
Honor Society, Student Council and
cheerleading taking up much of her
time. The bubbly teen was chosen
Hardee County Junior Miss and was
elected eighth-grade president by her
classmates.
Amanda is well-liked by faculty at
HHS. Teacher Judy Terrell says,
"Amanda is eager and willing to try
anything asked of her. She always has
a smile on her face, and I know I can
count on her to do her part to make
class fun for everyone."
High school life is loaded down with
activities for Amanda. Last year, while
serving as president of the freshman'
class, she maintained a 4.75 grade-
point average while participating in
Lionettes qnd cheering. One require-
ment of Lionettes is performing at least
18 hours of community service per
semester. Amanda has surpassed this
by logging in over 100 volunteer hours
at Hilltop Elementary and Hardee

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.

Lionettes' sponsor Martha Shiver '
comments, "Amanda is one of my
hardest-working girls. I know when
there is a project to do that she will.
pitch in and do her share."
This sophomore year will be just as
hectic for Amanda. Her academic load
includes honors, dual enrollment and
advance placement classes. One of
Amanda's goals is to be inducted into
the National Honor Society, so making
good grades is very important to her. A
long goal is to graduate at the top of
her class.
As captain of the junior varsity
cheerleading squad and as Sign
Language-Club, choir and Key Club
member, she will be busy many hours
outside the classroom, too.
In addition to Amanda, the Rigneys
include dad Andy and mom Amy along
with sisters Ashley, 17, and Aubrey, 10.
Younger brother Andrew "Drew," 8,
rounds out the group.
Being part of such a big family has
made Amanda realize that everything is
not all about her, and it shows in her
relationships with others.
Even though Amanda has received a
lot of recognition, she is quick to point
out the accomplishments of her class-
mates. She likes to brag on the people
who are on the swim and golf teams, is
proud of the volleyball girls who are
playing so well, and can be seen sup-
porting the basketball and football
teams.
Amanda Rigney is another teenage
who is proud to call Hardee County
home, and Hardee County is certainly
proud of her!

Kahn Hosts Barn Party BGEACHIEVERS


For Area Citrus Growers I i
In1 51[1


By JIMR KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Dr. Thomas Spreen, a Uni-
versity of Florida citrus expert,
spoke Oct. 23 to about 6 area
citrus growers at the Kahn
Grove Service Barn in Crews-
ville.
A UF professor since 1977,
Spreen is in the Food and
Resource Economics Depart-
ment. About 85 percent of
Florida citrus production is in
oranges and 11 percent in
grapefruit.
Florida's projected new
orange crop is 166 million
boxes. Ten years ago Florida
produced 244 million boxes of
oranges. There were 140 mil-
lion boxes in the 1991-92 sea-
son.
Florida is the second largest
world producer of oranges,
trailing Brazil. Florida is No. I
in grapefruit, which goes to the
U.S., Europe and Japan. Florida
oranges mainly go to the U.S.
and Canada. Florida is also a
significant producer of tanger-
ines and navel oranges.
Florida and San Paulo,
Brazil, account for 80 percent
of the world's orange juice sup-
ply. Brazil last season produced
300 million boxes of oranges
but their new crop is less.,
Florida growers are chal-
lenged by diseases such as
canker and greening and higher
cost of land, labor, fertilizer,
fuel and chemicals.
Florida citrus is well orga-
nized with the Florida Depart-
ment of Citrus, Florida Citrus
Mutual and regional organiza-
tions and is in the No. 1 citrus
market in the world. Florida has
the ability to have top-rated
research and produces high
quality fresh and processed
products.
Florida citrus also has strong

support from the state and fed-
eral government, said Spreen.
The main marketing firms for
citrus products in the U.S. are
Tropicana, Minute Maid, Flori-
da's Natural, Seald Sweet and
DNE, said Spreen.
He said weaknesses could be
too many organizations and the
dominance of a few processing
companies, mostly owned by
out of state companies. He cited
Tropicana owned by Pepsi,
Minute Maid owned by Coca-
cola, Brazilian-owned Cutrale
and Citrosuco, and French-
owned Dreyfus. Owned by
Florida interests are Citrus
World, Peace River Valley,
Duda, and Southern Gardens.
Another weakness, he said, is
consolidation at the retail level.
Wal-Mart controls 40 percent of
the U.S. food market. He said
the top eight companies control
over 85 percent of the U.S. food
market.
Spreen said opportunities to
sell more Florida citrus and
juice include the health aspects
of Vitamin C, potassium, folate,
fiber, and high in anti-oxidants.
Citrus production maintains
green space and provides
aquifer recharge, wildlife habi-
tat, and natural beauty. The
research base in Florida will
likely find cures to citrus dis-
eases.
Florida citrus is environmen-
tally friendly, workers are paid
and treated fairly, and citrus is
an important source of income
in rural areas.
Sugarcane is a strong alterna-
tive to citrus in Brazil, but there
are no good crop alternatives to
citrus in Florida, said Spreen.
Mechanical harvesting and pre-
cision technology may reduce
the cost of production and ben-
efit the environment.
Threats to citrus include dis-

eases, competition for land,
labor and water, rising energy
prices, a declining demand for
fresh citrus, and some people
saying fruit juice is unhealthy,
calling it "liquid sugar" he said.
Florida citrus has consistently
given high financial returns per
acre. The industry has a long
history of "thinking outside the
box." The industry should not
downsize its research, and this
is the right time to "pull togeth-
er, identify strategies that work
for the common good, and gar-
ner resources to institute those
strategies."
One challenge is that U.S. per
capital consumption of orange
juice has declined for the past
eight or nine years. Retail prices
have risen about five percent
this year and about 10 percent
the previous year.
Spreen said the citrus indus-
try has been impacted by the
Atkins diet and other low car-
bohydrate diets, the 9-11-01 ter-
rorist attacks, the 2004 hurri-
canes, and higher retail prices.
"Lower prices will help con-
sumption."
Brazil has a worse greening
problem than Florida. San
Paulo in Brazil has 25 million
acres in sugar cane and 1.5 mil-
lion acres in citrus.
"People like to look at citrus
trees."
Blended juice is a threat to
citrus juice consumption, he
said.
"In the future people may eat
more local."
Citrus juice processors have
about a six-month inventory of
stored juice which is affecting
he current market cash price
which is about 85 cents a pound
solids for early and mid-season
oranges. Most large growers
have several-year contracts at

There are so many misconceptions about nursing homes.
So many of us are under the impression that a nursing home is
a place where the elderly go to die, when in reality many of the
elderly go to a nursing home to live.
Most nursing homes are referred to now as health-care centers,
and offer short-term rehab as well as long-term care. Many will
benefit from short-term rehab after a surgical procedure that
requires physical therapy or occupational therapy. Stroke patients
will benefit from speech therapy as well.
Hardee Manor offers a team approach to rehabilitation to
enhance the quality of life by reshaping abilities and teaching new
skills.
As much as most of us would like to keep our aging parents
and grandparents at home, sometimes that is not possible due to our
hectic lifestyles and work schedules, and then there are times when
they need more medical attention than what we can provide in the
home.
The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home is never
an easy one, and there are feelings of guilt.
By placing them in a facility close to home where we can visit
often, and see all the activities and social time that is provided, our
feeling of guilt will subside and contentment will take its place.
With the permission of two of our residents, I would like to
share some photos that were taken from a variety show we had by
Chuckie Ray Harrelson.

Under this intent to grant, this variance is hereby granted subject to the
applicant's compliance with any requirement in this intent to publish notice of this
intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in
accordance with section 50.051, F.S. This action is final and effective on the date filed.
with the Clerk of the Department unless a sufficient petition for an administrative
hearing is timely filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., as provided below. If a
sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is timely filed, this intent to grant
automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the
result of the administrative review process. Therefore, on the filing of a timely and
sufficient petition, this action will not be final and effective until further order of the
Department. When proof of publication is provided, if required by this intent, and if a
sufficient petition is not timely filed, the variance will be granted as a ministerial action.
Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or substantial modification
of this action, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities
until the deadlines noted below for filing a petition for an administrative hearing or
request for an extension of time have expired and until the variance has been executed
and delivered. Mediation is not available.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action
may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected
by the Department's action may also request an extension of time to file a petition for an


administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request
for an extension of iime. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900.Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,,.
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for
extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the
request is acted upon. If a request is filed late, the Department may still grant it upon a
motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to file a request for an extension
of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other
persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcomelof the
administrative press have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding.
Intervention will be permitted only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the
filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with section 378.212, F.S., petitions for an administrative hearing
by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions
filed by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written
notice under subsection 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the
notice or within 14 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under
subsection 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for
notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice,
regardless of the date of publication. ,
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address
indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for an
administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency
affected arid each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) the name,
address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service
purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the
petitioner's substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c)
a statement of when arid how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) a
statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so
indicate; (e) a concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts
that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed
action; (f) a statement of the specific rules or statutes that the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action, including an

explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) a
statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the
petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same information as set forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under
paragraphs 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be
dismissed by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above
requirements or is untimely filed.
This intent to grant a variance constitutes an order of the Department. Subject to
the provisions of paragraph 120.68(7)(a), F.S., which may require a remand for an
administrative hearing, the applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order
under section 120.68 F.S., by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of
General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida,
32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable
filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be
filed within 30 days from the date when the order is filed with the Clerk of the
Department. 11:6c

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well, Football Fans, the Swami was in "I told you so" form as
Texas Tech beat Texas, Georgia Tech beat FSU and Syracuse upset
Louisville. However, a review of my picks this past weekend
unveiled only an 8-6 record on Sunday morning. Oh well, at least
I called the big surprises. The Top 25 over the past two years is
more tumultuous than the Middle East with ranked teams changing
weekly. Who is really the top ranked team in college football? It
would all hinge on which fan base you ask. Sure, one team may end
up unbeaten. Penn State is the most likely, but others will say they
didn't play anybody. The whole argument can be settled by a play-
off system.
The USF Bulls have played themselves out of any BCS Bowl
picture. They are bowl eligible with six wins but with Rutgers and
Connecticut coming into Tampa and with a December game in
Morgantown, W.V., look for a 7-5 or 8-4 final record. The new St.
Petersburg Bowl is foaming at the mouth to invite the Bulls. The
inaugulal bo\Il game would d be filled with local fans as USF faced
0-. team fiom Conference-LISA. That's not a bad thing for USF, the
SBi E:tt Or the Bay Area.
S t\\'e Viginia quarterback Pat White needs 236 yards rushing

college football' Tim Tebo'. may have put himself back atop the

I lh LII Gator is the best team in college,football. The past
fouii-r eeks ha\e witnessed total domination of some very good
tearti. Alabama, if unbeaten, will get blow n out in Atlanta by UF.
Mark it down.
Michigan \i ll not be going to a bowl for the first time in 33
years. Wonder if the $4 million they wasted on Rodriguez was
worth it" Wait until Ohio State humiliates Michigan with Terrell
Pryor the next four years. It will be fun to watch and laugh.
Coaches on the hot seat and may be gone at year's end are Phil
Fulmer at Tennessee and Greg Robinson at Syracuse. Washington
has already ended Ty Willingham's stint ws ith the Huskies.
Great Games this weekend There were a few I witnessed
Tampa at Kansas City.- Can you believe how bad the Bucs played
and pulled it out in OT? The last drive and two-point conversion
were classic. Pitt beat Notre Dame in four OTs on a field goal.
Scott McKillop, of the Panthers, is the best linebacker in college
football. The last second comeback, after leading the entire game,
by Texas Tech over Texas was one for the ages. November is the
month championships are won.


Now Let's Look at this week's Bill O' Fare. ..

CHECK YOUR CREEL?
You might wonder why-someone in a Florida Fish 4 Wildlife
Conservation Commission boat is stopping you and asking you to
participate in a "creel survey."
Two questions come to mind. What is a creel? And why does
it require a survey? Very good questions one answer involves
tradition; the other answer involves a healthy fishery.
A creel is a wicker basket used for holding fish that an angler
has caught or for a fish trap. Today, we still use the word for that
old-fashioned, but very stylish, basket. Somehow we haven't
adapted to asking if we can do "a live-well," "ice-chest" or "catch-
and-release" survey.
So, bear with us when we ask for your participation. Your
answers to our questions are important to the future health of
Florida's fisheries. The FWC's fisheries biologists need to know
what you have been catching.
Despite using old-fashioned terminology, the sophistication of
these vital surveys has grown over the years, and they are now a
critical source of information for determining how Florida's fish-
eries are doing.
Since creel clerks who conduct these interviews cannot talk to
every angler, biologists and statisticians work together to carefully
determine a sampling scheme of when and where we momentarily
interrupt an angler's recreation to gather this information. Each
angler asked to participate represents many other anglers we can-.
not talk to, so it is very important that we get the most accurate
information possible.
The interviewer will want to know how long you've been fish-
ing, and what you caught and harvested as well as what you
released. They may also measure your fish, check them for tags and
ask some questions about where you live and other information that
helps to explain results, including information on your age, which,
for instance, relates to license sales.
This information is used to determine what anglers want to
catch, what they are catching (species, size and numbers), whether
they are keeping them, and other factors that allow biologists to-
estimate the health of a fishery. .
Combined with other data, such as information from elec-
trofishing samples, biologists can determine what regulations are
needed for size and creel limits, what is needed for habitat restora-
tion, supplemental fish stocking, and where additional access, such
as boat ramps, shoreline access or fishing piers, may be needed.
For biologists to make the decisions that ultimately impact the
quality of your fishing, they need honest, accurate information.
False responses that over- or underestimate your catch can lead to
unnecessary or unrealistic solutions.
For example, an underestimate of angling success could lead
to stricter creel limits (the number or size of fish anglers may legal-
ly harvest) when they aren't necessary and stunting of the fish pop-
ulation because too few big fish are harvested to allow the others
to grow rapidly. In case of an overestimate of angling success, the
decision may be made that habitat improvements aren't needed
because the fishery is doing so well, delay a proposed fish stock-
ing, or prevent appropriate harvest regulations from being imple-
mented.
Of course, biologists consistently use multiple sources of data
to reduce the chance these types of errors will occur. But with
recurring budget cuts, creel surveys and angler-attitude surveys
become increasingly cost-effective. The need for honest, accurate
answers to creel surveys becomes more and more important.
So, the next time someone tells you he is conducting a creel
survey, remember you are representing many anglers and helping
to ensure the safe and sustainable -future of quality recreational
fishing in Florida when you give a few minutes of your time and
accurate information to the creel clerk.

November 6, 2008, The Herald-Advocate 7D.
1.) Florida at Vanderbilt Only a let down could stop the
Gators from rolling up another big win on their way to the SEC
Championship game. Tim Tebow broke Emmitt Smith's rushing
touchdown record at Florida last week. This week should be an
easy win. Florida 45 Vanderbilt 17.
2.) Cincinnati at West Virginia --- The Mountaineers have
won five straight and seem to have the offense rolling again. The
defense has been stellar all season. Bearcats have a solid defense
themselves. WVU 27 UC 13.
3.) Maryland at Virginia Tech Terps have a trap game here.
They lead the ACC but Blacksburg could be a Waterloo for then.
Virginia Tech 33 Maryland 24.
4.) TCU at Utah Great Non-BCS game. Utes have been
outstanding since Urban Meyer was there. Utah 38 TCU 31.
5.) Marshall at East Carolina The Thundering Herd has
been Jekyll & Hyde in 2008. Still, they sit atop CUSA East. MU
beat the Pirates 26-7 last year. They are improved this year. No rea-
son to lose to ECU. Marshall 27 ECU 17.
6.) Penn State at Iowa Lions should escape with an easy
win. Will they play in the NC Game? A one-loss SEC team will get
in before an unbeaten team from the Big 10. Penn State 35 Iowa 14.
7.) Louisville at Pitt Cardinals have something to prove
after losing to Syracuse. Panthers will not roll over. Louisville 27
Pitt 24.
8.) Alabama at LSU How long can Alabama hold the Top
Spot? Let's be realistic. They beat Kentucky by three points. They
don't deserve to be number one in the first place: LSU 28 Alabaima
26.
9.) Tennessee-Martin at Auburn Probably will.be Tigers
last win in 2008. They finish with Georgia and Alabama. No bowl
game for Tommy T in 2008 either. Auburn 30 UTM 10.
10.) Arkansas at South Carolina Gamecocks will go to
eight wins while Spurrier is waiting to ambush the Gators in
Columbia. South Carolina 34 Arkansas 17.
11.) Oklahoma State at Texas Tech Call it a hangover or
upset. Emotional let down? Sadly, since the Red Raiders are ranked
second now. Oklahoma State 41 Texas Tech 38.
12.) Syracuse at Rutgers Orange played well against
Louisville but can they do it two weeks in a row? Robinson is gone
after the season. Rutgers 34 Syracuse 17.
13.) Clemson at Florida State Noles get back on track. FSU
33 Clemson 21.
14.) Georgia at Kentucky Dawgs take out frustration on the
Mildcats. UGA 48 UK 14.
15.) Southern Miss at UCF After hanging 70 on UAB, the
USM eagles are ready for the Knights. USM 34 UCF 23.
16.) Seattle at Miami Fish defends their "aquarium."
Miami 27 Seattle 20.
17.) Indianapolis at Pittsburgh Steel City boys take care of
business at Heinz Field. Still looking for another Super Bowl.
Pittsburgh 33 Indianapolis 21.
18.) Jacksonville at Detroit Jags should be at the hapless
Lions. Jax 31 Detroit 17.
19.) New Orleans at Atlanta Saints in a close one. New.
Orleans 31 Atlanta 30.
20.) St. Louis at NY Jets Favre takes care of the Rams. Jets;
27 St. Louis 23.
