DREAM MACHINE

WPD To Put Harley-


Davidson On Patrol


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Every man's dream, a
Harley-Davidson 2009 Road
King, is a first for the Wauchula
Police Department.
The new cycle was received
on Nov. 5 and will be used on
patrol.
While it is undergoing
change to match other Wau-
chula police vehicles, Cpl. Paul
Bohanan is attending the 80-
hour training to prepare him to
use it properly.
Police Chief William Beattie
and Capt. Thomas Harris have
planned for the cycle for sever-
al months. It will also be used
mainly in traffic enforcement in
residential and school areas. It
will be included in parades,
demonstration visits to schools
and similar events.
Harris explained the lease/-
purchase program which allows
the department to get the much-
needed motorcycle, which is
being painted blue and white
with gold striping, similar to
other Wauchula police vehicles.
It is getting blue lights, sirens
and radar, a first-aid kit and fire
extinguisher, a police radio and
eventually a video camera.
Getting it began quite a while


ago, when it was determined
that the growth of the city and
influx of people on its highways
dictated its need. Bohanan was
assigned to obtain the motorcy-
cle and found instant coopera-
tion from the Harley-Davidson
Motor Co., Harley-Davidson of
Lakeland Inc. and its subsidiary
Ridge Harley-Davidson.
George Petropoulos, Mil-
waukee, Wis. company repre-
sentative for worldwide police
and fleet sales; Shulton
Thomas, the Tampa Bay area
district manager; and Don
Huffman, president, and Bill
Monts de Oca, vice-president of
the Lakeland company, worked
together in helping to decide the
type of motorcycle best for
Wauchula's use in traffic and
school zone enforcement and
public safety.
They agreed to lease the 2009
Road King to the Wauchula
department for $1 a year to get
the motor unit started here. At
the end of the two-year lease,
the city has the option to lease
or purchase another.
The Wauchula McDonald's
restaurant held a fundraiser the
first week of November, joining
with other local businesses and
individuals to funds to get the
motorcycle outftted.


,According to Emergency
Management Director Richard
Shepard, Weed was not the first
firefighter to be sent in to find
the dog. A crew was assigned to
search the house after 3-year-
old Antonia Banda. the little sis-
ter of the homeowner Maria
Macedo. told firefighters the
pupp. was still inside.
Macedo %\as on her way home
when she got the phone call
from her mother about the fire.
"I told my mom if they can't
sa\e the house, at least saxe the
dog." she said.
Shepard said they searched
until their air tanks ran out and
had to come outside. That was
when Weed and another fire-


fighter were sent in while the
crew got new air tanks. He
found the puppy at the northeast
corner of the home.
"I just started searching the
room. I went in and started in
one corner of the room, and it
was in the first room I
checked," said Weed.
"Baby" managed to escape
the flames and took refuge
behind a dresser under some
clothes.
According to Shepard the
east half of the home burned,
but the puppy was on the west
side behind a closed door.
Weed said the dog was doing
fine after the rescue.
"I'm glad everything turned


out well for the little girl," said
Weed.
"Our dog and my children's
feelings aren't replaceable, but
material stuff is. I'm content.
We did lose a lot, but what was
most important, Baby, was
saved," said Macedo.
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
responded with two engines and
one ambulance, the deputy fire
chief and two Emergency
Management personnel.
According to the investigator
with the State Fire Marshal's
Office, the fire appeared to have
been started by an electrical
short in the bedroom outlet. The
family was not home when the
fire started.

From Home
The 13-page Hardee County
District Schools policy mirrors
the state one. It defines bullying
as.''systemically and chronical-
ly inflicting physical hurt or
psychological distress on a stu-
dent or school employee. It is
unwanted and repeated written,
verbal or physical behavior ... to
create an intimidating, hostile
or offensive educational envi-
ronment."
It could be teasing, social
exclusion, threats, intimidation,
stalking, physical violence,
theft, public humiliation,
destruction of property and sex-

ment.
In turn, harassment is any
threatening, insulting or dehu-
manizing gesture ... that places
a person in reasonable fear of
harm to his person or property,

How best to get the concrete on site and in use has been soiled by this contractor for the new police/fire station'
now under construction in Zolfo Springs. Town Manager Linda Roberson confirmed on Tuesday that the footer for
the new building was poured and completed last week. The concrete pumper and the progress were evident to town
residents, who can expect a permanent home for the Police Department and Hardee County Fire-Rescue by March
31 of next year. The original structure was destroyed by Hurricane Charley in August of 2004. The new building will
be 1,732 square feet larger than the old, due to upgrades to comply with new building codes. The full $628,500 cost
will be covered by insurance monies and by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Builder is E.O. Koch Inc.

Q: Should breast cancer
survivors avoid coffee and
tea?
A: There's no reason to be
concerned that these drinks put
breast cancer survivors at
increased risk of recurrence. A
large population study released
earlier this year, which echoes
the results of two previous stud-
ies, shows no link between
breast cancer risk and consump-
tion of regular or decaf coffee.
The most recent results are
from the Nurses' Health Study
and include data from almost
86,000 women followed for 22
years. The evidence collected
previously, which also indicates
no increased risk, includes data
from more than 59,000 women
in Sweden (where people con-
sume more coffee per person
than anywhere else, in the
world) and a study of more than
34,000 women in Iowa. For
some women, moderation of
coffee, tea or caffeine may be
important because of pregnan-
cy, GERD (also called esoph-
ageal reflux or heartburn), sleep
difficulties or other problems.
Q: Do fiber supplements
help lower blood cholesterol?
A: Some types of fiber sup-
plements can lower LDL
("bad") cholesterol, but the
effects depend on the type of
fiber used. Most of the studies
suggest that adding 5 to 10
additional grams of soluble
fiber to a healthy diet can lower
LDL cholesterol by roughly
three to five percent. But
experts agree that the most
effective cholesterol-lowering
steps are reducing saturated fat
consumption and losing weight
if you are overweight. In addi-
tion, make sure you're getting
plenty of fiber from vegetables,
fruits, beans and whole grains
that provide soluble fiber, like
oats and barley. This is impor-
tant, as these foods provide not
only fiber, but a wide variety of
nutrients and phytochemicals
with antioxidant benefits. They
may also inhibit inflammation,
and research now suggests that
inflammation can decrease the
cholesterol-lowering effects of
a healthy diet. If you've done
all this and made at least 30
minutes of physical activity a
part yourr daily lifestyle, then
addjng,:a fiber supplement may
be advisable. "As withjll sup-
plement use, check with your
doctor first.
Q: Are the edible salad
bowls used in taco salads a
nutrition plus or minus?
A: Usually made out of corn
tortillas, these bowls are typi-
cally whole-grain products and
therefore supply dietary fiber
(about 2 grams) and vitamins.
However, their high fat content
- -,16 to 22 grams of fat per
bowl means they are more
similar to corn chips than a corn
tortilla. While most are trans-fat
free these days and very little of
the fat is usually saturated fat,
that much fat is nevertheless a
concentrated source of calories.


Typical restaurant-size tortilla
bowls contain from 280 to 370
calories, nearly as many calo-
ries as the salad that goes
inside. In addition, one tortilla
salad bowl has as much carbo-
hydrate as two or three pieces
of bread. You're better off
ordering your salad without the
edible bowl and adding beans to
your salad to increase the fiber
content. If you simply love tor-
tilla bowls, limit yourself to
tearing off a few bites only.
Q: What is spaghetti
squash? Is it a better choice
than regular spaghetti pasta?
A: Spaghetti squash is a
unique form of winter squash.
Thin noodle-like strands are
created from scraping its
cooked flesh, giving the gourd
its pasta-inspired name. Spagh-
etti squash is significantly
lower in calories than tradition-
al spaghetti pasta, supplying
only 42 calories per cup com-
pared to 220 calories in
enriched spaghetti and 170
calories in whole-wheat vari-
eties. Typical of winter squash,
it provides beta-carotene, an
antioxidant that forms vitamin
A and may play a role in cancer
prevention. It also contains
three times the potassium of
spaghetti pasta. On the other
hand, spaghetti pasta contains
three times as much iron as
spaghetti squash, as well as
more protein and far more of
the antioxidant selenium. If you
choose spaghetti pasta, go for
whole-wheat versions. These
provide more than double the
dietary fiber of either spaghetti
squash or refined pasta varieties
and additional magnesium, too.
But for those looking to expand
their vegetable repertoire,
spaghetti squash is a great
option and a fun food that kids
often like to help prepare.
Q: What does the term
"high potency" on a vitamin
supplement label mean?
A: Legally, the term "high
potency" can only be used
when a supplement supplies
100 percent or more of a day's
recommended consumption of a
vitamin as identified by the
Reference Daily Intakes (RDI).
If a supplement contains a mix-
ture of several different vita-
mins; minerals or both, at least
two-thirds of them must be sup-
plied at levels of 100 percent or
more. The term "high-potency"
does not mean that a product's
nutrients are in any way better
absorbed or more effective.
While "high-potency" may
make a product sound more
desirable, that's not necessarily
true. After all, your food is sup-
plying nutrients, too, and it is
possible to get too much of a
good thing.

Of The Herald-Advocate
Alcohol is the gateway drug
for students.
The state of Florida has just
released its annual Youth
Substance Abuse Survey and it
shows that 29.8 percent of stu-
dents from the sixth to 12th
grade have used alcohol within
the past 30 days.
Many young people experi-
ence alcohol before the legal
age of 21 from various sources.
According to John Varady,
coordinator for the Heartland
Educational Consortium Alco-
hol Abuse Reduction, it is most
often consumed during a cele-
bration, like prom or homecom-
ing.
Other providers are parents,
stores who do not ID or older
people who condone underage
drinking.
Alcohol can come in many
forms and sometimes is not
easy to detect. For example,
some beer companies have cre-
ated energy drinks that contain


hol plus caffeine.
In response to this, the state
- has provided a three-year grant
for a new prevention program.
The program is put on by the
Heartland Educational Consor-
tium, through the Alcohol
Abuse Reduction Program,
which provides support and
education to students in the five
districts of the Heartland area.
The program will begin at
Hardee Senior High School
next semester.
According to Varady there
are three parts to the program.
The first is a 12 lesson cur-
riculum called Towards No
Drug Abuse (T.N.D.) that edu-
cates students about the harmful
effects of drugs and alcohol.
T.N.D. will also deal with posi-
tive decision making and lead-
ership skills.
"It's a way to make young
people think about their think-
ing," said Varady. The lessons
will be taught in a class with
similar topics and tied to course


other young people


Varady added, "We specifi-
cally made sure we matched the
curriculum and will not take
away from their [students] stud-
ies." Each lesson will be about
40 minutes long.
The second component deals
with "social norms marketing"
and creating a Students Against
Destructive Decisions (SADD)
chapter. SADD is made up of
students promoting a substance
free lifestyle and focusing on
their general well being. Social
norms marketing will focus on
changing the social thinking in
young people.
The third part is Teen-
Intervene, a program designed
for teenagers ages 12-19 who
have experienced problems be-
cause of alcohol or drug use.
According to Varady, the
Alcohol Reduction Program
will be working closely with
Students Working Against To-
bacco (SWAT) as well as the
Hardee Drug Coalition.

to change the way their think-

"People in the community
need to see the wonderful
young people we have not, just
the bad ones in the news. There
are so many more good students
than bad," concluded Varady.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Don't weary yourself trying
to get rich. Why waste your
time? For riches can disap-
pear as though they had the
wings of a bird.
Proverbs 23:4-5 (NLT)

FRIDAY
A sterling reputation is better
than striking it rich; a gra-
cious spirit is better than
money in the bank. The rich
and the poor shake hands
as equals -. God made
them both. True humility and
respect for the Lord lead a
man to riches, honor and a
long life.
Proverbs 22:1-2, 4 (The Message)

SATURDAY
He who loves money shall
never have enough. The,
foolishness of thinking that.
wealth brings happiness!.
The more you have, the
more you spend, right up to
the limits of your money.
Ecclesiastes 5:10-11a (TLB)'

SUNDAY
A greedy person tries to get
rich quick, but it only leads
to poverty. Greed causes
fighting, trusting the Lord
leads to prosperity.
Proverbs 28:22, 25 (NLT)

MONDAY
Riches will not help you
when it's time to die, but
right living will save you from
(eternal) death. Whoever
trusts in his riches will fall,
but the righteous will thrive
'like a green leaf.
Proverbs 11:4, 28 (NCV)
TUESDAY
Dishonest money dwindles
away, but he who gathers lit-
tIe by little makes it grow.
Proverbs 11:13 (NIV)
WEDNESDAY
We can make our own plans,
but the final outcome is in
God's hands.

Where do homeless students
go to school?
According to the School
Board policy adopted last week,
they are welcome to continue at
the same school they were
attending when they became
homeless.
This could be someone in a
hotel or motel because a fire
destroyed his home, someone
living in trailer parks or camp-
ing grounds; awaiting foster
care; in cars, parks or public
spaces; abandoned buildings or
substandard housing; and also
migratory students who may be
in any of these situations.
It could even be an unaccom-
panied youth, someone not in
the physical custody of a parent
or guardian.
The federal McKinney-Vento
Homeless Education Act, part
of Title X of the No Child Left
Behind Act of 2001, requires
each district to adopt a plan for
homeless students.
They shall be provided trans-
portation and education of
choice, including preschool,
gifted, before-and-after school,
vocational and technical and
school nutrition programs just
as other students are.
In a related matter, the School
Board also approved expendi-
ture for web-based instruction
programs for the 23 students at
Pioneer Career Academy, those
at Bowling Green Youth
Academy, and certain migrant
and homeless students. Most of
the money is reimbursed by the
state's, North East Florida
Educational Consortium funds.
In other action, the Board:
-approved three job reclas-
sifications, appointing Kathy
Clark as acting principal of
Bowling Green Elementary
School; Woody Caligan as;
deputy superintendent I of
schools; and moving Rocky
Kitchens to the position of
SDirection of Special Projects.
-approved construction ser-
vices: negotiating a contract of'
up to $4.1 million with A. D.
Morgan Corp. for construction
management for Bowling.


-Green Elementary New Class-
'room construction; Phase III
-specifications and drawings for
Bowling. Green Elementary;
approved advertising for bids
for replacement of roofs on
buildings 600, 700 and 400 at
Hardee Senior High.
-approved hourly salary
schedules changes for substi-
tutes teachers at $7.50, $8.50
and $9.50, depending on level
of education, and for lifeguards
at $7.50.
-approved a job description
for an English for students of
other languages (ESOL) para-
professional to assist in the
classroom
-approved substitute teach-
ers Connie Abbott, Judy Al-
britton, Dawn Atkinson-Jones,
Jamie Cole, Margie Nell

ous school facilities for Hardee

Our History Our Future.
I am particularly proud we are using the name of our founder, John Bean, in the
name of our company, To highlight how much his legacy is a part of our new
organization, here is a brief historical perspective.
We trace our roots back to the 1880s when John Bean, then an orchard owner
and inventor, set out to solve a severe scale infestalion affecting orchards in
California's Santa Clara Valley. His solution was the invention of a continuous
high-pressure spray pump to more efficiently apply insecticide on the trees.
From this invention, the Bean Spray Pump Company was formed. Thriving on
its innovative spiiil, the company became the Food Machinery Corpoiabon in
1929 and, three decades later, FMC Corporation.
By the mid 1990s, FMC Corporation had evolved into a globally diversified

to narrow its strategic focus, first through the sale of its defense business and
later by splitting the chemical and equipment businesses in 2001. Since then,
these more focused companies have independently grown and prospered,
providing strong returns to their shareholders under the names United Defense,
FMC Ccporation, and FMC Technologies.
Now, JBT Corporalion has its opportunity to thnve as an independent company
with a focused marketplace strategy. We honor our legacy by adopting the

History: The Shooting Of A Sheriff


By SPESSARD STONE
For The Herald-Advocate
Daniel S. Carlton, a pioneer settler of Fort Pierce, was the first
elected sheriff of St. Lucie County and died while serving in the
line of duty.
Daniel was a son of Reuben (1842-1917) and Elizabeth Crews
Carlton (1844-1918), a grandson of Daniel,Wilson and Sallie Ann
Murphy Carlton and Dempsey Dubois and Piety Collier Crews,
both sets of grandparents being pioneer settlers of, respectively,
Troublesome Creek and Fort Hartsuff. His great-grandfather,
Alderman Carlton. was killed.in the Willoughby Tillis Battle below
Fort Meade on June 14, 1856.
During the Civil War, Reuben and his brother, Wright, enlisted
on April 10, 1862, as privates in Company E, 7th Regiment Florida
Infantry. Pvt. Reuben Carlton appeared on the company muster
rolls from April 1862 to February 1864. Wright was captured on
Dec. 16, 1864, at Nashville and was a prisoner of war until released
in June 1865.
By late spring of 1864, Daniel W. Carlton's support of the
Confederacy had changed so dramatically that it was reported:
"Another case is that of old Mr. Carlton, who drove his sons in the
Rebel Army, with shouts of exultation. The Rebs have, we hear,
carried him off in irons northward. One of his sons at home on fur-
lough, seeing his father treated thus, came to us."
The son was Reuben. At Fort Myers on May 28, 1864, he was

FOOD SAFETY AT HOLIDAY TIME
Holidays together means eating together.
One factor to keep in mind during this time of celebration is
food safety. According to the Partnership for Food Safety
Education, there are four basic steps to remember when dealing
with food. They are clean, separate, cook and chill.
Clean
Wash hands and surfaces often. Foodborne bacteria can conta-
minate cutting boards, utensils, countertops and food. Fight these
bacteria by washing your hands in warm, not hot, water with soap
for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food, after using
the bathroom, changing diapers and handling pets.
Cutting boards, dishes, utensils and countertops should be
washed with hot soapy water after preparing each food item. Use
paper towels to clean up surfaces or, if you use cloth towels, wash
them often in the hot water cycle of the washing machine.
Disinfecting kitchen surfaces with a bleach solution provides
some added protection. Mix one teaspoon of unscented chlorine
bleach to a quart of water, flood the surface and allow it to stand
for several minutes, then rinse and air or pat dry with fresh paper
towels.
Fruits and vegetables should be washed before being used.
Rinse them under running water, including ones with skins or rinds
that are not eaten. Do not use soap or bleach on fruits or vegetables.
They can be absorbed by the fruit or vegetable and make anyone
who eats them sick' Firm-skinned fruits and vegetables can be
scrubbed with a vegetable brush under running water before prepa-
ration. Remove and throw away damaged or bruised areas on pro-
duce as bacteria can thrive in these places.
Separate ,,
Bacteria are spread by cross-contamination. Improperly hand-
ing raw meat, poultry and seafood creates an inviting environment
for cross-contamination. This allows harmful bacteria to spread to
food and throughout the kitchen.
Use at last two cutting boards if possible: one for vegetables
and a separate one for meat, poultry and seafood. Using separate
cutting boards each for meat, poultry and seafood also is a good
idea. You can even buy cutting-board sets that come with color-
coded boards for this purpose.
Do not put cooked meat back on the same plate that previous-
ly heldraw meat, poultry, seafood or eggs. Watch out for the juices
off of your meat, too, even in the grocery cart. Put thawing or raw
meat in a pan on the bottom shelf of your refrigerator to keep it
from dripping on the other items.
Leftover marinades should not be used as sauce for cooked
meat.
Determining when meat is cooked through can be a lot of
guess work, unless you use a meat thermometer. Wash the ther-
mometer between uses and between dishes. If cooking or reheating
in the microwave, stir and rotate dishes to ensure even heating.

Cook
The difference in a safe food to eat and an unsafe food to eat
can be the matter of a few degrees! Foods must reach a high
enough internal temperature to kill harmful bacteria that cause
foodborne illness. For a chart on safe cooking temperatures, visit
the Fight BAC! Web site at www.fightbac.org.
Buffet-style foods need to be kept at proper temperatures also.
Hot food should be kept at 140 degrees or higher. Use chafing
dishes, slow cookers and warming trays. Transport hot foods to
parties by using insulated thermal containers, keeping them closed
until serving time..
Refrigerate foods promptly and properly. According to the
U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture, refrigeration at 40 degrees or below is orne of the most
effective ways to reduce the risk of foodb'rne illness.
Microorganisms grow more rapidly at warmer temperatures.
Use a refrigerator thermometer to ensure propel cooling tem-
peratures. Refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared food and left-
overs within two hours of purchase or use. If outside temperatures
are higher than 90, reduce this time to one hour.
Marinate foods in the refrigerator.
Never defrost food at room temperature. Allow enough prep
time to defrost in the refrigerator. For a quick thaw, defrost in the
microwave, if you're going to cook the food immediately, or
enclose the food in an airtight package and submerge it in cool
water, not hot. Change the water every 30 minutes.
For large amounts of leftovers, package them in smaller, shal-
low containers for quicker cooling. Don't overstuff the refrigerator.
In order for it to operate and cool food properly, the cold air must
have room to circulate.
Make sure food doesn't get too cold! Ice crystals start to form
as a food's temperature reaches 32 degrees. This will lower the
quality of foods like raw fruit, vegetables and eggs.
Cold buffet food should be kent at 40 degrees or below. Keep
them chilled right up until serving time. Place food containers in
crushed ice to make sure the food stays cold enough. Custards,
cream pies and cakes with whipped-cream or cream-cheese frost-
ing must remain refrigerated. If refrigeration is not possible, do not
serve these items.
If traveling with cold food, use ice or cold packs in the cooler
and keep it full. A full cooler maintains a cold temperature longer
than a half-full cooler. Remember to refrigerate leftovers within
two hours of serving.

Meat & Poultry Hotline at (888) 674-6854, the Fight BAC! Web

enrolled as-a' private by Capt. Henry A. Crane in Company B,
Second Florida Cavalry, U.S. Army. He was soon promoted to
sergeant. Albert Carlton, his brother, subsequently enlisted as a
private on June 15, 1864, in Company B.
Sgt. Reuben Carlton and Pvt. Albert Carlton were mustered out
with their company on Nov. 29, 1865, at Tallahassee.
After the Civil War, Reuben and family first settled on the shores
of the Caloosahatchee River, near (now) LaBelle, and from there.
up the river near Okeechobee. They then removed to Ten Mile
Creek for two years and later settled at Fort Pierce. The Carltons
were prominent cattlemen and also farmed.
Daniel Stephen Carlton was born Feb. 6, 1872, near present-day
Arcadia. With his parents, he later moved to Ten Mile Creek and.
then Fort Pierce. On April 30, 1904, Daniel married Theresa Molly
Hilliard, born May 2, 1884, Wildwood, daughter of Thomas B. and
Mary Ann Willingham Hilliard of Fort Meade.
Daniel was a cattleman, citrus grower, and in 1907 began serv-
ing as the first elected sheriff of St. Lucie County, in which office
he continued until his death on May 22, 1915.
Sheriff Carlton was a friend of the Seminoles, including Billy
Bowlegs III. After John T. Flournoy, who was manager of an
amusement park at Johnstown, Pa., stole the skeleton, pipe and
other items of Tom Tiger which had been robbed from the
chief's grave deep in the swamp out from Big Mound City Billie
Smith, chief of the Seminoles, warned the people of Tantie
(Okeechobee) on Feb. 23, 1907: "Big Yankee stole bones of Tom
Tiger, Indian big chief and best friend. Indians all fight. Kill white
man ojus (much), bones no taken back by big Yankee by next
moon."
The county commissioners sent Sheriff Carlton to the Indian set-
tlement, and he succeeded in calming the situation by assuring
them every effort would be made to bring back the bones of their
departed chief. Giving a two-month extension, he advised the
people through a letter published in the Tribune of April 19, "There
is as much danger of an Indian uprising as there is of a Hotten-tot!f
invasion of England."
Flournoy subsequently returned to the state in June and brought
back with him Tom Tiger's bones, which Sheriff Carlton returned
to the pleased Indians at Hungerland. Thus was the crisis resolved.
On May 22, 1915, Sheriff Carlton was killed by night marshal
D.J. Disney. Joe Crank-shaw wrote in "Lawmen's gun battle shat-
tered town's peace" in The Miami Herald of Sunday, March 29,
1987:
"One of St. Lucie County's most shocking shootings took place
the evening of May 22, 1915, when a gunfight erupted between the
sheriff and man hired as a Fort Pierce night marshal.
"Fort Pierce was a raw and growing town. P.P. Cobb was con-
structing his new building, the railroad was adding spurs to its sec-
tion yards and land sales were brisk.
"Saturday night was a lively night in the town. Farmers came to
make their weekly purchases and let off a little steam while towns-
people turned out to socialize.
"The town had no police force. Merchants employed a recent
arrival from Georgia, D.J. Disney, as the night marshal to patrol
stores and keep order. Actual law enforcement was in the hands of
Sheriff Dan S. Carlton, a popular St. Lucie County native, and his
four deputies.
"Carlton also was the town butcher.
"Fort Pierce and St. Lucie County were usually peaceful enough
that Carlton could devote a considerable amount of time to the
butcher shop.
"Residents were astounded when the peace of a Saturday night
was shattered by a fusillade of pistol shots. As the shots ceased
echoing through the streets, Sheriff Carlton, pierced by four bul-
lets, lay dying on the board sidewalk and Disney, bleeding from
three wounds, was staggering into the sandy street.
"People shouted the two men had shot it out in an alley.
"The sheriff's brother, L.L. Carlton, snatched the marshal's pis-
tol, pointed it at Disney and pulled the trigger twice. The weapon
snapped on empty chambers. L.L. Carlton threw it at Disney and
ran to his brother.
"The sheriff was carried upstairs over the St. Lucie Drug Store to
the office of Dr. H.D. Clark, where he died on the examining table.
The lawman had been shot through the right eye, in the chest,
above the heart and through both arms.
"Disney was carried to Dr. E.W. VanLandingham's office above
the St. Lucie Bank. He had been hit in the right eye, right side and
leg. After Disney was patched up, it was decided he should be sent
to a Miami hospital.
"A problem arose. No city money was available to send him and
a deputy as a guard, so Mayor Richard Whyte offered $50 of his
money to the trip.
"Disney was put on a southbound Florida East Coast Railway
Pullman. He didn't stay there long.
"Deputy Sheriff Jim Alderman and a group of citizens forced
their way onto the train at gunpoint, dragged Disney off and beat
him severely, breaking a leg. The frightened train crew wasted no
time in leaving. Passengers told reporters further south that anarchy
reigned in Fort Pierce.
"Gov. Park Trammell appointed William T. Jones, a former FEC
engineer, as sheriff and the grand jury indicted Disney for second-
degree murder. Disney pleaded innocent.
"A trial quickly followed. Twenty witnesses testified a total of
40 hours. They said Disney had bested Jim Alderman in a dispute
several days before the shooting, and the sheriff was upset.
"On May 22, the sheriff and Disney met in the alley. Words
were exchanged, and then shots. Some said that Carlton was walk-
ing away from Disney; others said both men were facing each other
before shooting.
"Taking the stand in his own behalf, Disney said that Carlton had
drawn first and that he had been hit in the eye before firing back.
"The jury could not make a decision. A mistrial was declared.
"The trial was moved to Orange County, where in May 1916 a
jury heard the same 20 witnesses and delivered a verdict of guilty
of manslaughter. Disney was sentenced to five years in jail, end-
ing a rare incident in which one lawman fought another at gun-
point, on the Treasure Coast."
Disney appealed the verdict to the Florida Supreme Court, but
the decision was upheld. Disney was received in the state penal
system on Jan. 25, 1917, and served until July 24, 1919, when he
was released on a conditional parole.
On April 9, 2002, Theresa Whitice Olah related:
"On the night of my grandfather's death, my grandmother,
Theresa Carlton, mother Louise Carlton, and my mother's first
cousin, Ruby Carlton Teague, were planning to attend a silent
movie at the local movie theater. As they walked down the street,
they saw my grandfather, and my mother ran to him and put her
arms around his legs.
"He said, 'Hello, Dirl,' which was what he affectionately called
her. Then, he turned to my grandmother and asked her if she need-
ed any money.
"She replied that she didn't need money and would see him later.
"He paused, and said, 'Theresa, there is something I need to tell
you which is important, but I will tell you later this evening.'
"That was the last time they saw him alive.


"As my grandmother, mother and cousin sat in the movie theater,
someone came into the theater and bluntly told my grandmother,
'Theresa, Dan's been shot, and he is dead!' My grandmother
jumped up and ran screaming out of the theater into the street. She
tried to get to my grandfather, but the crowd blocked her way. All
'this time, she continued screarhing, until a friend grabbed her and
put her in a buggy which was sitting close by.
"Meanwhile, my mother was totally panic stricken, but a friend
took her and her cousin, Ruby, outside and continued to stay with
them until the chaos subsided. Mother felt as. though her whole
world had fallen apart. Her father was dead, and her mother was
somewhere else. She carried that trauma with her until the day she
died, and she could never stand the smell of Easter lilies again,
because they were the flowers used at his funeral.
"When my grandfather was taken to the doctor's office, a wash-

tub was placed under the table, as he 46.s bleeding profusely, and ^
Mother said that the washtub became filled with blood. Of course,
there was blood all over the sidewalk, and the stain remained there
for quite a while, until that section of the sidewalk was removed ,
and a new section replaced it.
"After the hysteria subsided, my grandmother began to think i
about what my grandfather had
said to her the last time she saw him. Whatever it was that he had
wanted to tell her seemed important, but how was she to know
what it might be? As time went on, she began to feel his preserice,
and several times he seemed to appear to her. Once while sleeping,
she awakened and saw him bending down over her. She said she;!
could see the buttons on his suit very clearly, but being startled, she
screamed and he slowly backed away into the corner of the room
and disappeared."
Kyle VanLandingham on June 18, 2002 added:
"About 1970, I spoke with two elderly ladies, Addie (Holmes);;
Emerson and Jessie (Parker) Hambleton, both of Fort Pierce, about '
the killing of Sheriff Carlton. They were both alive at the time ofa,!
his death and remembered the details. Both are now deceased.
"According to them, there was a real problem in Fort Pierce
about illegal liquor sales, primarily in the black community. These ,i
liquor dens were called 'blind tigers.'
"Some of the leading ladies of the community, including Mrs.
Effie (Morgan) Alderman Raulerson, daughter of Eli Morgan, cat-::
tie king, and divorced wife of David Lee Alderman and later wife
of Keightly B. Raulerson; and the Widow McCarty (Mrs. Charles ,
McCarty, widow of Charles T. McCarty and grandmother of the :
future governor), were concerned about the problem and were i
instrumental in bringing in Disney to help resolve this 'problem.'
"Sheriff Carlton was alleged to have not been particularly zeal-,
ous in dealing with these illegal and clandestine liquor dens, and:,
this brought on conflict with Disney."
SDr. William Wilbanks in "Forgotten Heroes, Police Officers
Killed in Early Florida 1840-1925" chronicled:
"There are several 'schools of thought' as to the cause of the pis-:
tol duel between Carlton and Disney. The local newspaper sug-
gested (six days after the killing) that:
"'The cause of the quarrel has not been definitely established.;
Several evenings previous, Deputy Sheriff Jim Alderman had a mix ',
up with Disney in a little night restaurant and it is said Disney was
the winner.'
"Clearly, there was 'bad blood' between Carlton and Disney ;
before the killing and it only took a 'spark' to cause the shootout. ;
However, Carlton family members today and historians suggest;
that there may have been more to the shooting than a simple-:
shootout between two men who did not like each other.
"The family believes that Disney was hired by local''bootlegging'
interests who wanted Sheriff Carlton 'out of the way' because he
was 'hurting business.' Allegedly, the 'liquor interest' included Mrs.
McCarty, whose son later became governor of Florida.
"On the other hand, there are those who believe that Carlton was
protecting the bootleggers and was killed by Disney at the instiga- .
tion of 'reformers.' The 'deeper cause' of what lay behind the"
Carlton killing is still very much debated in 1997."
Dr. Wilbanks further commented:
"The name of Daniel S. Carlton is inscribed on the East Wall,
Panel 22 on the National Law Enforcement Memorial in,:,
Washington, D.C. A photograph of the slain sheriff is displayed atO!
the headquarters building of the St. Lucie Cou6ty Sheriff's Office
along with the other sheriffs who have served the county."
Theresa Carlton died Aug. 12, 1958 at Fort Pierce. She was
buried beside Daniel in the Carlton Cemetery.
Daniel Stephen Carlton and Theresa (Hilliard) Carlton had two
children:
Daniel Stephen Carlton Jr., born July 21, 1905; died Aug. 17,
1980; married Virginia Barnes.
Louise Carlton, born Nov. 12, 1907; died Dec. 16, 1982; married
(1) William Wallace Maund; (2) James Walker Whitice.











Florida Hospital


Upgrade
In its ongoing effort to bring
top-quality technology to
Hardee County's residents,
Florida Hospital Wauchula has
just completed an upgrade
which enhances its X-ray capa-
bilities.

"This new Universal X-ray
machine is more patient friend-
ly and 'technologist friendly,"
said Florida Hospital Admin-
istrator Linda Adler.
"Because the old equipment
was large and cumbersome, it
was difficult to move a patient
into the correct position. Now,

work with patients and the
machine, agreed the 'new
machine is a boost to local hos-
pital technology. "This new
machine really makes a differ-

really love it."
Next on the technology front
for Florida Hospital Wauchula
is a new CT scanner, which is
due to arrive in late December.
The imaging program will
upgrade from a two-slice scan-

I Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well Football Fans, it's Thanksgiving weekend. It is time for
turkey and dressing plus rivalry games across college football; the
classics of Texas versus Texas A&M on Thanksgiving Day, the
EGG BOWL between Ole Miss and Mississippi St. and the "Back
Yard Brawl" between West Virginia and Pitt. Of course, there is
also Notre Dame and Southern Cal but that game is not even a'
glimmer of what it was 30 years ago. Notre Dame losing to
Syracuse should keep them out of any bowl game. Amazingly bowl
folks want the Irish bringing their delusional fans who live in the
past glory. It's been so long since Notre Dame won a bowl game ,
Moby Dick was still a guppie.
West Virginia QB Pat White rushed for 200 yards against
Louisville, finally surpassing Missouri's Brad Smith as the all-time
rushing QB in history. Pat also passed Donavan McNabb as the Big
East touchdown leader too. It is hard to believe Pat White is not
included in the Heisman discussions. He has led his team to three
straight 11 win seasons and three bowl wins over SEC Champ
Georgia, Georgia Tech and Big 12 Champ Oklahoma.
Coaching rumors are heating up as we enter the holiday peri-
od and a crucial time for recruiting. The best one is Phil Fulmer
going to Marshall. This one hit the internet message boards
Wednesday and there seems to be a bit of validity to it. Big donors
have allegedly been asked to up donations to bring him to
Huntington. The Swami is just going to let this one play out. A lot
of Herd fans would be happy with it for sure. Brian Kelly of
Cincinnati is rumored to be going to Tennessee. His Bearcats will
,represent the Big East in the BCS if they beat Syracuse.
Other coaching rumors concern Turner Gill at Buffalo. He has
been linked to Syracuse but it would not surprise anyone to see him
end up back in the Big 12. Florida assistant coach, Charlie Strong,
has been rumored for a few jobs. He will get his chance so on.

Now let's look at this week's Bill 0' fare for Thanksgiving
Weekend...
1. Florida at Florida St.-The Seminoles have made offensive
progress with Jimbo Fisher and Rick Trickett. However, the Gators'
defense is an SEC defense not the ACC. UF will be the 2008
national Champions. Florida 45 FSU 13.
2. Tulsa at Marshall-The Golden Hurricane offense scores
at 50 points per game. Marshall's defense has played well but the
offense could never outscore Tulsa.- Tulsa 40 Marshall 17.
3. West Virginia at Pitt-This is an old rivalry and there is no
-love lost between them. Interestingly the visiting team wins most
of these games. Pitt ruined WVUs National Championship last sea-
son. This season is payback.Pat White is money in the bank. WVU
24 Pitt 21.
4. Mississippi St. at Ole Miss-MSU has played better in
recent weeks. Ole Miss is also coming off a big win over LSU.
The Rebels are just a little better. Ole Miss 31 MSU 28.
5. Texas A&M at Texas-Aggies have given the Horns a hard
time in the past. This year the Horns know they have the tie-break-
er in the Big 12 to make it to the National Title game. Texas 41
Texas A&M 17.
6. LSU at Arkansas-Tigers rebound from Ole Miss loss.
LSU 34 Arkansas 13.
7. Colorado at Nebraska-Huskers have no trouble.
Nebraska 38 Colorado 17.
8. Baylor at Texas Tech-Red Raiders still in the hunt for a
BCS Bowl. Still a fun team to watch. Texas Tech 45 Baylor 24.
9. Oklahoma at Oklahoma St.-just for a shocker. Some let-
down after last week for the Sooners? OSU 35 Oklahoma 33.
10. Georgia Tech at Georgia-Dawgs finish off the instate
rival in fashion. Georgia 44 GT 21.
11. Syracuse at Cincinnati-Can the Orange win back to

A WOMAN FOUNDED THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY
Here's a bit of trivia you might ask about while you're sitting
at the dining-room table and feasting on turkey: What do
Thanksgiving and "Mary Had a Little Lamb" have in common?
Answer: Both the holiday and the poem were created by the
same woman, Sarah Hale.
Sarah Josepha Buell Hale was born in Newport, N.H., in 1788,
the same year that the U.S. Constitution was finally ratified. She
lived 90 incredibly productive years. She was taught at home by
her mother in her early years, and later by her brother who attend-
ed Dartmouth and shared his lessons with her. In 1822, her hus-
band, David Hale, a lawyer, died after 10 years of marriage, leav-
ing his widow with five children and the need to earn a living.
Friends contributed to her family's support while she tried her
hand, first, at the millinery trade and then at writing, including both
poetry and fiction. In fact, Hale's first novel, "Northwood," was
also the first ever written about slavery. She was soon hired as the
editor of a magazine for women and became influential in guiding
the tastes of the period.
It was during this time that "Mary Had a Little Lamb," which
was based on an actual incident, appeared in her book, "Poems For
Our Children."
It's probably not a surprise that Hale was both an advocate for
women's education and a respected abolitionist. As the possibility
of civil war loomed ever greater during the 1840s and '50s, she
came to believe that an annual day of Thanksgiving might actually
be a way of preserving the Union and avoiding bloodshed.
"There is a deep moral influence in these periodical seasons of
rejoicing, in which whole communities participate," she said.
"They bring out ... the best sympathies in our natures."
Over the years, she wrote to hundreds of politicians asking for
their support, which rarely came.
When war finally tore the United States apart, Hale refused to
give up her campaign for a nationally recognized Thanksgiving
holiday. This time she turned to President Abraham Lincoln, ask-
ing, "If every state would join in Thanksgiving. .. would it not be
a renewed pledge of love and loyalty to the Constitution?" And,
this time, she got the answer she wanted.
Lincoln declared that the last Thursday in November 1863
should be celebrated as Thanksgiving Day. In his proclamation, he
reminded Americans that even though they were "in the midst of a
civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity," there was much
for which they could be grateful: continued peace with other
nations, the preservation of civil order and the prosperity of busi-
ness and industry.
"No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand
worked out these great things," Lincoln continued. "They are the
gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in
anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It" has
seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, rever-
ently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice by
the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow citi-
zens . to set apart and observe . a day of Thanksgiving and
Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens."
We have celebrated Thanksgiving ever since because one
woman would not give up her dream of a holiday when people, as
individuals and as a nation, could unite in simply saying, "Thank
You."

Mosaic: Thanksgiving Is A 'Day Of Sharing'


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate Intern
Many folks will be joining
,with family and friends today
and sharing delicious food.
.Mosaic and its employees
wanted to make sure that every-
pne in the community had a
chance to enjoy a hot Thanks-
giving meal. So on Monday,
Volunteers from various corpo-
rations gathered at the Ullrich-
Nicholson Pavilion at Pioneer
Park in Zolfo Springs for a
"Day of Sharing."
' Volunteers from various
agencies, organizations and cor-
porations spent hours preparing
for a feast to feed the special
disabled people of this commu-
nity.


On the menu were a variety
of salads, crispy fried chicken,
tender turkey, roast beef, dress-
ing, various casseroles, warm
rolls and yummy desserts.
L.C. Davenport, a crane oper-
ator, was in charge of cooking
the assortment of tender meats.
Lisa Joe's BBQ & Ice Cream
and Fowler's Grocery catered
C:. event.
The idea for this Thanksgiv-
ing dinner for those with dis-
abilities first started when Carol
Sockalosky, administrative as-
sistant in Hardee Homes
Special Services Inc., men-
tioned it to her husband, Ed
Sockalosky, a Mosaic employ-
ee.
Mosaic, eager to help the


community in any way, gave
permission to the- volunteers to
put together an event
"We felt that putting on the
event was important because a
lot of the clients don't have
families that have anything to
do with them. The clients usual-
ly don't get a chance to meet
new friends in the community
and associate with people like
them," said Ed and Carol
Sockalosky.
The agencies greatly appreci-
ated the free Thanksgiving meal
and the giving heart that Mosaic
and its employees had for this
community.
"I think this shows a lot about
what Mosaic thinks about this
part of the population. It shows


that they should also be apart of
the community. This is what
every other family is doing dur-
ing the holiday, and they
shouldn't be left out," says
Hardee Homes consultant
Monta Clemons.
Guests were serenaded by
professional singer Rich
Mistretta of Lakeland, who is
also an environmentalist for
Mosaic.
Grace Holden, administrative
assistant for Mosaic, finds pride
in the company giving back to
the community.
We have so much. It's impor-
tant to give back to the commu-
nity during this holiday sea-
son."

Put Issues On State Table


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
What do small counties need
to survive in these difficult eco-
nomic days?
A,pair of Hardee County rep-
resehtatives had about a half
dozen answers recently when
they were invited to a state
"Accelerate Florida" challenge
to provide ideas.
Bill Lambert, director of eco-
nomic development, and Lex
Albritton, county manager,
responded to the invitation to
attend a "Think Tank" meeting
on Nov. 12 in Gainesville. "We
want to put things on the gover-
nor's table and be sure he
understands the issues," said
Lambert.
He and Albritton had dis-
cussed the major issues with the
Hardee County Commission
before going to the think tank
meeting and came up with both
short- and long-term economic
goals.
Jatropha
One of them, alternative
energy development, continued
with a Nov. 13 meeting here on
the possibilities of growing
Jatropha curcus, a biodiesel fuel
plant which can yield up to 10
times the amount of oil of soy-
beans or canola.
A nine-member steering com-
mittee will continue to look at
the idea at a Dec. 3 meeting
from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. at the
Ona Research Center. Mem-
bers of the committee are
Marcus Shackelford of the
Industrial Development Au-
thority; Dale Johnson, chairman
of the County Commission; Dr.
John Arthington of the Re-
search Center; Lockie Gary of
the County Extension Office;
Tom Pospichal of Mosaic
Fertilizers; Nick Katzaras of CF
Industries; Edgar Davis for the
private business sector; Roy
Beckford of the University of
Florida staff; and Lambert.
Lambert and Albritton were
pleasedwith the think, tank


meeting. "The list we presented
was well received. There were
representatives from state
departments, transportation,
community affairs, environ-
mental protection, Enterprise
Florida and the Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development (OTTED)."
They took the information,
along with that from other
groups meeting across the state,
and will prepare it for Gov.
Charlie Crist to present to the
legislature early next year.
RURAL ISSUES
So, what are the key issues?
' Lambert and the commission
came up with the following:
large county intervention in
small county development;
flexibility to fast track econom-
ic development with land use
changes; urban transportation
effects on small counties; con-
tinued financial support for eco-
nomically constrained counties;
using rural areas to develop
alternative energy sources;
enterprise zone tax credits;
unfunded mandates; and Flor-
ida Housing Finance Corp.
funding for farmworker hous-
ing.
In the cover letter inviting
Lambert and Albritton to the
meeting, OTTED said "Permit-
ting processes and regulations
are now the target of scrutiny to
identify how government can
reasonably get out of the way of
business."
That was good news to coun-
ty officials.
Large County Intervention
But, even more important
was a way to minimize large
county intervention in small
county development by filing
suit. The county has a $14 mil-
lion income stream from an
economic development agree-
ment with Mosaic pending
while lawsuits are resolved.
Lee, Charlotte and Sarasota
counties oppose the mining
because the\ feel it:will could


limit their water supply.
Commission Vice-Chairman
Minor Bryant said "those are
not in our region, Lee and
Sarasota are not in the Peace
River Basin. It goes back to
home rule. Let each county
decide what it wants."
"They are taking our power
away to make a decision," said
out-going Commissioner Gor-
don Norris.
"Lee County's budget is 75
percent larger than Hardee's.
We've done everything they
asked. They selfishly admit
they are watching out for their
own water," added Lambert.
"If they want to play, then let
them pay. There should be a
way they pay for delaying our
economic development," said
Commissioner Bobby Smith.
Lambert suggested an eco-
nomic liability method when
another county blocks econom-
ic development.
Fast Track Land Use
Decisions
The county needs flexibility
to fast track certain Compre-
hensive Plan amendments,
which now go to DCA for a
lengthy review and response.
Lambert suggests that, "in some
situations, the county doesn't
want to wait for Tallahassee
approval. A change in highway
mixed use, expansion of the
Commerce Park, may not need
to run through DCA review. It's
more important to have public
hearings and know how our cit-
izens feel."
"It goes through the Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council," said Bryant, who is a
member of the council."
Tallahassee has no dog in this
fight. I can see them getting
involved in something big, say
500 acres or more." Bryant
noted that CFRPC put 50 addi-
tional conditions on the Mosaic
mining plan. Lee and Sarasota
counties aren't involved in it, he
added.
Lambert suggested that the


county have control for up to
three parcels or 200 acres every
two years.
Transportation
Lambert said it is unfair for
larger counties to four-lane to
the Hardee County line and
leave the county untouched.
"Their travel impacts ours.
There needs to be an equaliza-
tion formula to assure funding
parity. One prioritization is
evaluation of the "toll road"
evaluation the Heartland Coast
to Coast Corridor."
Lambert said the county
needs to be involved in plan-
ning for the road to go Port
Manatee to Florida's turnpike in
St. Lucie County.
Fiscal Constraint
Hardee needs to maintain its
status as a "rural area of critical
economic constraint (RACEC)"
when considering state funding
requests. For instance, small
county courthouse assistance
and two state road funding pro-
grams bring dollars the county
would not otherwise have.
Alternative Energy
Jatropha curcus is only one
alternative energy source that
would be feasible in rural areas.
Others are solar energy, algae ,
ethanol-cellulosic and sugar,
clean coal, nuclear and wind.
Hardee County has the land
and capability to develop these
resources with state backing,
said Lambert.
. Enterprise Zone
Robert Slate, the Enterprise
Zone tax credit expert, feels the
law should be tweaked to pro-
vide more incentives for rural
counties from both OTTED and
Enterprise Florida. Hardee's
enterprise zones are along the
U.S. 17 corridor and down the
CR 664A corridor from Fort
Green to Vandolah.


Unfunded Mandates
Periodically, legislation em-
erges for projects without fund-
ing of them. The most recent is
the creation of an office of con-
flict counsel, for which $10,000
is allotted statewide. The addi-
tion to the public defender's
office is being challenged.
Another is the law allowing
dedicating property for conser-
vation "in perpetuity," which


removes it from the tax rolls,
even though the owner could
later go back and build on it.
"There's a move in Alachua
County to make people go back
and pay taxes to when the con-
servation began if they later
develop it commercially," said
Bryant.
He said many unfunded man-
dates are imposed by the state
agencies, not the legislature.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson
ABOUT OSWALD
Oswald Chambers never deliberately wrote the daily devo-
tional book that he is famous for, "My Utmost for His iHghest." It
is a collection of letters, quotes and lecture notes put together by
his wife after his death at the.age of 33.
it is the piercing truth of what he constantly spoke about that
brings us back again and again to read these brief statements, and
to let them hit us right between the eyes.
Chambers was first of all concerned about "The Ministry of
the Interior." If nothing significant has happened there, the we
don't have anything to talk about.
Chambers is not so much an evangelist as he is a "discipler."
He is urging a lifestyle of absolute obedience to the Lord. Is such a
life possible? Chambers insists that such a life is the only one
offered by the Bible. Everything less is false.
His reason for writing and preaching in such an uncompro-
mising fashion is that this is God Almighty we are dealing with. He
knows us through and through. Pretense and excuses are impossi-
ble.
Chambers is like an army drill sergeant. He brings us back
again and again to the point: It is not "Is God treating me right?"
but "Am I treating God right?"
And how can we expect to enter into a relationship with God
if we do not accept Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords?
If anything has come between you and God, never look for the
explanation in your intellect. Look for it in your disposition. Once
your disposition willingly submits to the life of Jesus, the under-
standing will be perfectly clear.


Letter To The Editor
Wauchula Elks Lodge
Sets Meeting For Dec. 16


Dear Editor:
I would like the opportunity
to respond to an article placed
in your newspaper dated"
October 30, 2008, in regards to
Wauchula Elks Lodge No.
1700. The lodge has received
several telephone calls over the
article, and these members and
the public seem to have been
misled by the report.
I was assigned by the Grand
Lodge to assist and aid the
lodge in its financial operations.
The lodge presently has a full
slate of officers who have been
working diligently to become
profitable. The officers and
members are continuing the
lodge's charitable contributions
to those less fortunate than us,
support the major projects of
providing physical or occupa-
tional therapy to children, and
sending children to our Youth
Camp.
This diligence, along with
several other cost-cutting mea-
sures and income-producing
maneuvers appear to have the
finances heading the right
direction.
The lodge is not for sale and


iKci~

'It'


no realtor has been approached
and/or retained. In the current
real estate condition sale of
property would difficult to
attend.
The lodge however has been
approached by an interested
party who has expressed an
interest in the property. The
officers would have been
remiss in their duties if they did
not inform the membership of
this potential offer.
An informational only town
hall meeting was, called on
November 13 to formom the
membership.iof' thewtdetails of
this potential offer. A direct
result of that gathering, the offi-
cers have been directed to hold
special meetings on December
16, 2008, to allow the member-
ship their right in directing the
officers in which avenue the
lodge should pursue.
Speaking for the officers, if
we are directed to continue in
theses negotiations a minimum
amount of interruption will be
noticed.

food seems to taste better. In
addition to the usual Thanks-
giving feast Punk's brother
caught plenty of mullet, so they
will have fried fish. The first
year I was in Wauchula, Kay
and I were invited to a Thanks-
giving feast in the woods near
Horse Creek. The ones I re-
member who attended were
Avis and Tom Sasser, and the
families of the Dashers, the
Ralph Carltons, the Archam-
baults, Ms. Pierce and Ms.
Teachey. Quite a few of these
have already passed away, but I
fondly remember that fhanks-
giving. Some set up a bridge
table and others fished in the
creek. It went like clockwork,
some manned the grill, others
put the feast on the tables and it
was a great day!
Johnnie Avard was a visitor
in the bank last week. She is


still battling cancer and needs
our prayers. She lives in North
Georgia, but must have gotten
cancer before leaving Hardee
County, as it seems to be an epi-

Paul Clark will finish his
radiation this week. He will be
happy as he said all the symp-
toms outlined to him in advance
are right on target, weak, sore
throat, etc. Barbara Casey had
to take Tim to the emergency
room Saturday night. He had
been released to return to work
but is now confined to his easy
chair for another week. Janie
Arnold is not doing well. She is
weak and in pain.

Greetings from Fort Green
and Happy Thanksgiving!
The fall festival and chili-
cooking contest at Fort Green
Baptist was a success. Brianna
Waters won the golden ladle for
the best mild chili and Johnny
Brown won the red ladle for the
best hot chili. Carol Brown
won the coveted castle cake
made by Cindy Walker.
As you all know, the paper is
being published on Thanksgiv-
ing. Everyone needs to give
thanks for living in America
and having the abundance that
we do.
I mentioned in last week's
column that T.K. was inducted
into the National Honor So-
ciety. We were happy when
neighbors Donald and Mary
Samuels attended to congratu-
late T.K.
And speaking of T.K., on the
way to school last Friday he
was in a wreck and totaled his
truck. Thank the Lord he had on
his seatbelt or he would proba-
bly have been ejected. A big
van turned into his truck, spun
his truck around, flipped it into
the ditch and then it righted
itself up on the highway and
skidded down the road on the
driver side, and then the truck
turned back to being upright.
He was all shook up, and he
and I spent most of the day in
the emergency room, where
they said nothing was broken,
just bruised, and he would be
sorer the next day. He was
especially upset about his.truck.
I told him, you could always get
another truck but not another
grandson.

With the elections over and the holidays fast approaching,
things are becoming very hectic for all of us. Everyone here at
Hardee Manor had a good time for Halloween and our fall festival,
and We are busy preparing for Thanksgiving.
And having said that, we would like to give thanks to our
county for all you do for us by means of volunteering and giving
donations.
We especially would like to mention Lucy Crawford for the
new exercise program' she has started for our residents here at
Hardee Manor. She comes two mornings a week and instructs a
30-45 minute class. The residents really enjoy it. Marcus
Shackelford recently donated a large box of fresh baked goods.
Everyone enjoyed the sweet treats.
We are thankful for all the good caring thoughtful people of
Hardee County. It makes me proud to call Hardee home. Hardee
Manor likes to think of our facility as a home with an open-door
policy, and we welcome any visitors or volunteers. We like to go
back to the basics, when life was simple and relaxed and you could
sit on the front porch and visit with your neighbor and watch peo-


It's Thanksgiving, and there certainly is an awfully lot to be
thankful. It puts sports in perspective to realize there are a lot worse
problems in the world than winning a game. It's wonderful to-win,
hard tolose, but not critical to life either way.
At the final football game, fans were asked to remember the
former Wildcats now serving in Iraq and other serious situations.
They include Charles Browdy, Jose Retana, Uriel Reyes, Armando
Alvarado, Jesus Lopez, Caleb Mink, Felix "Skippy" Prieto and Lee
Carter, who was on leave from Iraq and able to take in that last
game.

Fall sports have wrapped up, the last being swimming and div-'
ing, with Sheldon Hartman in state competition in diving on Nov.
,14. By the way, I owe an apology to Dusty Spears for omitting an
important mention in the district swimming roundup. He placed:
first in the boys 500. He's one of a dozen seniors leaving the team;
including Hartman and Spears, that list also includes Brittany
Wiggins, Tyler Robertson, Kaitlin Justice, Katie Jernigan, Isaac'
Vasquez, Chris Reid, Lee Cortez, Joe Porter,, Katiana Pesquera and
Corey Dudek.

Almost all the winter sports are under way, with the exception
of girls weightlifting, which has its first meet on Dec. 9. Coach Jan
Brutus has her girls practicing hard. The first meet is at home vs.
Avon Park and Lake Placid.
Boys basketball started Tuesday at Bradepj River: in "a
girls/boys varsity double-header! The girls were on their third game
of the season.
Girls and boys soccer played on Friday evening at Avon Park,
but results have not become available.
a Junior high girls and boys basketball starts Monday with games
at DeSoto, followed by more at Avon Park, next Thursday. Hardee
comes home for games Dec. 8 and Dec. 15 before the Christmas
break.
Speaking of hoops, Arnold Louis and Mark St. Fort are doing
well at Savannah State. It's good to see them go on to get their col-
lege educations and play basketball too.

Golfers, don't miss the opportunity to help the First Christian '
Student Ministries and Harvest Aviation's MARK youth programs
by not getting in their golf fundraiser on Dec. 6 at Little Cypress
Golf Club.,There are shotgun starts at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The format
is an 18-hole four-person scramble with a continental breakfast, rib
dinner and door prizes.
All proceeds will be used to provide for travel and personnel for
a missions trip to the Bahamas in the summer of 2009. For more
information, call Jose Camillo at 863-368-0660 or jcamilo@fnb-
wauchula.com. Send your entry form to First Christian Church,
1121 W. Louisiana St., Wauchula or take it to Tom Taylor at Little
Cvyress. Entry deadline is Dec. 3.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please e-mail me at news.heraldadvocate @embarq-
mail.com or call me at 773-3255 with news for this biweekly col-
umn. The sports news deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday, except for
events which happen over the weekend. They are due by noon


Monday.

The beginnings and endings
of all human undertakings
are untidy.

Dear Editor:
Morals, how many people
/ really have them anymore? The
N times have changed so much
over the last 30 years or so.
Most people do not seem to
HEIRS care about other people's
morals or even if they have any
morals at all.
This world seems so full of
that a their own cares and wants in
ion foary life. Whatever happened to hav-
ciaries, ing good examples in life? So
horizing many people seem to be caught
s court, up in self.
a copy Me, myself and I. Do we as a
any, on nation care how people promote
se name lies, sex, deceit, and every other
thing in this world that is not
/ELL good for you?
T At one time a handshake or
7 just giving your word meant a
3 lot. Now, trust is very hard for
5, 2068, people to find in life. I was told
the writ- that some would like for prosti-
k of this.. tution, drugs, and same sex
vice or marriages to be legalized. This
ilure to .would make people not want it
nses as so much, if it was so easily
dgment available. Hogwash.
handed' It seems to me people just
)r, 2008. want permission to do whatever
IADLEY feels good, to heck with the
of Court consequences. Just because you
Madray say it is legal, that alone will not
ty Clerk make the problem go away.
;008 Our world is already paying

AIT OF ents want our children to grow

thugs on drugs.
Some people cheat and run
around on their spouses, and
that's supposed to be okay as
long as they don't get caught.
Or so they think.
Good examples. I can re-
member when preachers used to
preach on Hell more than they
do now. Why? People want to
believe in Heaven, but most
don't want to believe there is a
real Hell.
Everything that feels good is
accepted these days. A lot of
people do not want to believe in
God, unless they can make God
okay with everything they do
that's wrong.
Our choices in this life will
have a outcome in the next life.
Feel good today, but tomorrow
we' will reap the harvest we
have sown today.
It seems like so many, are
afraid they will step on toes if
they speak the truth. Truth
hurts, but it can be spoken with
love and concern for others.
So many think what they do
should not matter to others
around them. Wrong, there will
always be someone watching.
God. He loves us. We are His
children. If we love Him, we
will heed His word.
Do you remember when you
told your children no, no that
will hurt you? Touching a hot
stove will burn you. So will sin.
Sin burns what quality of life

Do not accept sin. We as
Christians need to make a stand
for what is good and right in
this world. Time is going by
quickly.
Some will not like the truth
when they hear it. Truth does
not fit with their sin, but that
will not change the truth. Truth
stands and if it will be accepted
it can set you free.
Our life here is a mere vapor.
We are here for a short time.
Shouldn't we care for what is
right in this world?
Morals and actions do matter.
It affects everyone in many
ways.
Yours in Christ,
Sheila Miller.

It's takes a while to meld four
seniors, three juniors, four
sophs and a pair of freshmen
into a team.
While working on this, how-
ever, the Hardee girls varsity
basketball team lost its opening,
games of the season.
The opening game at
Charlotte was a 48-26 loss, but
the home game Thursday was
worse, against rival DeSoto, a
56-16 loss.
The JV girls won their opener
28-18, but also succumbed to
DeSoto 67-31.

There was a varsity-only
game at Braden River on
Tuesday, a double-header in
which the girls teams played
first and the boys squads had
the late game.
That was all until Monday,
when Hardee hosts Lake Placid,
followed by Tuesday's home
encounter against Sebring and
next Friday's games at Avon
Park. In each of them, the junior
varsity plays at 6 and the varsi-
ty about 7.
At Charlotte High last
Tuesday, Hardee started slowly,
down 10-2 at the end of the first
period. Charlotte picked up the
pace in the second period
behind the shooting of Angela
Tompkins, who was the only
Lady Pirate to finish in double
digits.
Hardee came out on fire in
the second half. While holding
Charlotte to just four points,
Hardee scored 11, including a
trey and pair of deuces by
senior Sabrina "Noonie"
Holmes. Tompkins returned
and added another half dozen
points for her team, making the
final tally 48-26.
For Hardee, Holmes had 11
points and junior Carleen
Brown added 10. Soph Ashley
Louis added three and class-
mate Ivette Cisneros added a

Against DeSoto on Thursday
evening, the Lady 'Cats had a
hard time functioning. The
Lady Bulldogs have overcome
their last year record and are
much more aggressivee. They
constantly blindsided the Lady
Wildcats and stole the ball for
breakaway lay-ups.
While Hardee was trying to
regroup, DeSoto ran off the first
dozen unanswered points and
continued to pound the boards
offensively and defensively.
When Hardee finally answered
with aggressive rebounding, the
game was out of reach. The
entire fourth quarter was played
with a running clock, which
occurs when there is a 35-point
difference in scores.
Hardee's toughest opponent
was Lady 'Dawg Marinda
Davis, who finished the night
with 22 points, nine hoops and
four-of-seven free throws. She
was the only DeSoto player in
double digits.
For Hardee, it was Holmes
with six points, Cisneros five,

A little girl broke a treas-
ured vase and cried, ."Oh,
mom, I'm sorry. Please for-
give me."
"I know you're sorry," said
the mother. "I forgive you.
Don't cry anymore."
. Sweeping up the pieces, the
mother threw the into the
waste basket.
But the little girl picked
them up and came sobbing,
"Mom, I'm so very, very
sorry!"
"Destroy those pieces," said
the mother. "I forgive you.
Don't cry anymore."
As with the mother, so with
our heavenly Father. Guilt is
removed with confession and
cleansing.
The Bible says, "If we con-
fess our sins. He is faithful
and just to forgive our sins,
and to cleanse us firom,,all
unrighteousness."

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.

WHAT ARE YOU 'UNTHANKFUL' FOR?
Well, the season of Thanksgiving is upon us. And usually peo-
ple ask you to list all the things you are thankful. To be honest, I
love doing that, making a list of all the people and things I am truly
thankful for having.
But, most of you know I'm not usual nor am I normally nor-
mal. So I have a different question to pose today. What would be
on your list of things you are not thankful for?
Now, whoa! Stop! Don't think of anything else. Hold those
thoughts.
I know if you're like me, you already have a Top 10 list ready
to rattle off for me. But stop and think just a minute or two, or 10,
and really ask yourself, "Are there things in my life that I'm really
not thankful for?"
Before you get all crazy with me, you have to hear me out or
read on.
I know there are a lot of people who have a lot of terrible,
awful, unimaginable situations they deal with every day. There are
people who truly are long-suffering here on this earth. Certainly
they should have a list, right? We might even expect them to have
a long list. Well, maybe that's just what you and I think.
There are families everywhere losing jobs. Good hard-work-
ing people who can't find work. There are people who have babies
born with incurable diseases and they die. There are families who
live every day taking care of children that can't take care of them-
selves. There are people with no limbs who do things you and
would never dream of doing. There are people who are paralyzed
that we think maybe should have lists.
Sometimes tragedy changes your perspective. Sometimes the
reality that we are merely a flash in the pan, that our bodies are just
flesh and bone, is enough to make us thankful.
When we come to understand that, in the big picture, it really
isn't about us, it is about Him. When we understand suffering for
His sake is a privilege of being a child of the Father then, we
can't help but be thankful.
Sure, it t is OK to be real. Sure it is OK to tell God exactly how
you feel. Jacob even wrestled with God, and came away with a
limp. But he knew God intimately loved him.
God wants us to know Him more and more. He wants us to see
that His love is deep and wild and mysterious and glorious and
wonderful. His love is unending, it is steadfast and secure.
So go ahead and make your list, write down all the things you
are unthankful for. All the things that maybe only you and God
know about, those things that hide right there, close enough to give
you angst but far enough away not to really deal with the heart of
the issue.
Write those things down. Go ahead, nobody else is looking.
Some of these things are little, but for you they are big. So go
through each one with God and tell Him about each one.
Now comes the hard part: Try to be thankful for each one of
these things. Maybe you can't right now, that's OK. Maybe you
won't ever be able to. Just remember Philipians 4. A lot of people
like to quote verse 13. Tim Tebow even writes it on his eye black.
But read the whole chapter.
Verse 6 says, "Do not be anxious about anything, but in every-
thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known to God." And then verses 11 and 12 say,
"Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in
whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought
low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I
have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and
need."
Then verse 13 affirrrs God's ultimate provision, "I can do all
things through Him who strengthens me."
Do you know the secret Paul is talking about? Let's let toe
secret out of the box. Repent of your unbelief and sin and trust in
Jesus.
So, have you taken a few minutes and gone done your list?
Maybe you have re-thought a few things? Maybe some things seem
a little less miserable? Maybe you're madder than ever, maybe you
feel like your list is so overwhelming nothing can or will help.
Jesus is there for you; He will help. Put all of your hope in
Him. He will surely make you thankful.
Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted but
getting what you have, which once you have got it you may be
smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you
known.
-Garrison Keillor

CHAPEL
We had 76 greeted by Ray
and Ruth Porter and Larry and
Ruth Brown. Our choir sang
"That Sweet Song of Old,"
directed by Ardeth Johns -
nice to have her and Bob back
for the season and accompa-
nied by Cheryl Conkle. Prayer
was led by Joe Boyer, and Bob
Conkle led us in songs of
praise.
Pastor Jim preached from
Psalms 100. A joyful noise
meaning if you feel it in your
heart you can speak it from
your heart.

COFFEE
There were 129 in attendance
to listen to Clay Cobb, general
manager of Cobb Construction
and of Florida Sales & Rental, a
new company in Wauchula,
speak, with introduction of his
manager Randy Bacon. We
appreciated them sharing infor-
mation about what they have. to
offer in the community.
We are now the proud owners
of a new television, receiving
funds from the chapel and
activities funds. Now the exer-
cise groups can start to getting
those bodies back in shape, and
we'll be ready for the Super
Bowl.
Our welcome back picnic
was a great success with 192
attending, with Bud and Wanda
heading that up. We sure appre-
ciate them for all they do, and
their helpers.
Our first pancake breakfast
this season, organized by Janet
Forster was a big success with
108 attending.


SPOTLIGHT
John and Janet Forster have
been together 20 years and mar-
ried for 12. John lived in
Winnipeg for 44 years and Janet
from Windsor, and that is where
they reside presently.
They are proud grandparents
of six girls and two boys. They
both enjoy their grandchildren
and spend their summers with
them. John is a pilot and en-
joyed a flying trip with his 7-
year-old grandson, letting him
take the wheel for a few min-
utes so he could say he flew the
150 Cessna. He came down
with a big smile on his face, and
he had just a short moment of
being scared as they were near
the shore of water.
Before John was flying he
owned an Interstate Gold Wing
Motorcycle, which he did final-
ly give up as there is never
enough to time to fly and ride.
John is interested in stained-
glass projects, and is much a
perfectionist with that as well as
with woodworking. Hopefully
he will show some of his pro-
jects at the Show and Tell com-
ing up before the end of the sea-
son.
Janet is very active in her
church at home as a warden,
which is like a board member.
She also likes any type of craft
project and loves to socialize
and volunteer.
Living in our park three
years, the first year they rented
a unit and then they became res-
idents. They say this is the
friendliest park ever and they
love it here. And we sure love
having them here. We enjoy
them being our neighbors.

IF WINTER COMES ...

Reluctant to begin the season
winter stomps its foot like a bratty child

And though disinclined
slathers a coat of white across the land.

I listen for the hush of falling snow
pondering the many times the sky has
filled my life with white diamonds,.

And now the bulging blank sky is yawning
and I glitter as stars tumble over me.
