Of The Herald-Advocate
A federal lawsuit filed
against the Hardee County

A mediation hearing has been
set for 10:30 a.m. in the Tampa

missal to the state Division of
Administrative Hearings and

The major noted that the car,
with the body still in it, was
taken intact to the Medical
Examiner's Office in Lakeland.
"The medical examiner wanted
to see and remove the body
from the vehicle for evidentiary
purposes," he explained.
Both the vehicle and the

Cancer Strikes Young Mom


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate
Christmas lights are being dangled around the
limbs of trees, hot chocolate is being stirred on the
stove and crisp cookies are baking in the oven.
This is a time when many families reflect on the
past year and prepare to emerge into year 2009.
But for city of Bowling Green receptionist and
life-long time Hardee County resident Amy
O'Bryan, this holiday season is bittersweet as she
continues to fight the battle against colon cancer.
O'Bryan was diagnosed with colon cancer this
past June. The news brought shock and struck fear
into the hearts of her family and friends.
"I was scared when I found out. I never dreamed
I would have cancer at this age," says O'Bryan.
O'Bryan is only 37.
Although the news was heartbreaking, O'Bryan
was extremely grateful that her doctor, Terrance
Delikat at Pioneer Medical Center, recommended
the testing.
She first decided to go to the doctor to lose
weight. When she explained that her symptoms were
fatigue and lack of energy, she was directed to
undergo some testing in hopes of finding the root of
the problem.-,
"I went to the doctor and told him the symptoms

CANCER


-Continued


I have been having. He told me that I should get
checked out. If it wasn't for him, I would have never
known. He saved my life," O'Bryan says.
Through the numerous surgeries and tests, the
hardest part for O'Bryan is supporting her twins as-a
single mom while paying for the 20,percent of the
costs that her insurance doesn't cover.
O'Bryan is the proud mother of young twins Joni
and Cory, who will be celebrating their 7th birthday
very soon. She is a single mom now, as she recently
was separated from her husband.
"The kids know that I have cancer, but they don't
fully understand what it means," she says. ':
She underwent surgery in July, which removed the
majority of her colon. The cancer was the size of a
plum.
She must be retested every six months and go to
the doctor every other week, for four days of that
week. The constant driving back and forth to the doc-
tor and home has greatly affected the family financial-
ly.
O'Bryan is also currently going through
chemotherapy, and she has gotten halfway through it
without losing any of her hair. However, she has
become much more fatigued and weak. She has lost a.
total of 77 pounds since she was diagnosed.
"She is exhausted all the time," says her mother,
Pam Northup, who is city clerk in Bowling Green..


From 1A
"She keeps trust in God to pull her through it."
But, Northup adds, "She is struggling with
finances, and it is heartbreaking for her to have to rely
on help. She has always been the first one to help,
even if she doesn't get anything back in return."
This disease has not only affected O'Bryan and her
children, but also her immediate family.
Children in her extended family who are as young
as 15 years old are now recommended to get tested for
colon cancer. O'Bryan's 21-year-old cousin, Jessica
Weed, recently got tested in fear of potential colon
cancer.
"If anyone is having any problems, it is important
to talk to the doctor about it as soon as possible. If you
don't catch this in time, it could be fatal," said
O'Bryan.
If you would like to help this family during its
time of need, you can do so by donating money at any
of the Wauchula State Bank branches, where City
Manager Yvonne Kimball has opened an account in
O'Bryan's name. A donation can also be dropped off at
the Bowling Green City Hall.
"She appreciates any help she can get," Northup


says.
But, more importantly, she notes, "We want to
make people aware of how young you can be when
colon cancer strikes you."

today are Brian, Harold, Ron Jr., and Ron's son Corey.
Ronald Lambert worked from 1950 to 1960 at Goochland
Nursery north of Fort Meade. His dad Porter moved to Hardee

adults. Men treated for prostate
cancer with hormone depriva-
tion therapy (also called andro-
gen deprivation therapy) also
face increased risk. Women
treated for breast cancer' can
have an increased chance of
developing osteoporosis due to
decreased estrogen levels fol-
lowing chemotherapy or sur-
gery, or as a direct side effect of
some types of chemotherapy or
even the cancer itself. Extended
treatment with glucocorticoid.
medication, (as part of cancer
treatment. or foF ~thhier condi-
tions) also increases risk.
Besides these, cancer-related
influences, 'developing osteo-
porosis is more likely for those
who are small-boned, have a


family history of osteoporosis,
lack adequate calcium and
physical activity, smoke or
drink too much alcohol.
However, osteoporosis can be
treated and prevented. Make
sure you get adequate calcium
and vitamin D (essential for cal-
cium absorption) in the diet or
via supplements if needed.
Engage in regular, weight-bear-
ing physical activity like walk-
ing. Avoid tobacco. Drink alco-
hol in moderation, if at all.
Cancer survivors should talk
with their doctor about whether
they may be at fisk and could
benefit from a bone mineral
density test. Today, medications
that can successfully treat
osteoporosis are available.

attempted murder. He since has
been transferred to the custody
of the state Department of
Juvenile Justice, and is being
held at the Juvenile Assessment
Center in Bartow.
He is accused of shooting 32-
year*old Aaron Laronn Daniels,
of 815 Sally PI., Wauchula,
after trying to rob him as he
walked with a friend on Mowatt
Street shortly after midnight on
Saturday, Nov. 15.
The friend ran, Sheriff's
Office spokesman Maj. Claude
Harris Jr. said, and was
unharmed.
Harris explained that both
men had been walking north on
Mowatt Street when someone
dressed in black jumped from
the bushes on the west side of
the street, waved a pistol and
ordered, "Give it up!"
As Daniels walked away, the
robber fired. Harris said Daniels
later told detectives he thought
it was a joke.
After firing his gun, the
would-be robber fled on foot.
Daniels cried out for help,
and his friend returned to the
spot, flagged down a passing
vehicle and took the injured
man to Florida Hospital Wau-
chula.
Meanwhile, sheriffs officers
tried to follow the suspect's path
with a tracking dog, but were
unsuccessful, Harris said.
The single gunshot struck
Daniels at the top of his right
shoulder, near the neck. The
bullet traveled down his spine,
lodging between the vertebrae,
and remains there. Doctors
have not removed the bullet.
Reports indicate Daniels is
paralyzed. He remains hospital-
ized at Tampa General Hospital.
Daniels identified Smith as
the suspect from a photo line-
up, Harris said.

Nutrition
Notes


Q: Does diet have any
impact on hot flashes?
A: Hot flashes are sudden,
intense, hot feelings on the face
and upper body, followed by
chills. In natural or breast can-
cer-induced menopause, they
seem to result from dropping
estrogen levels or blocked es-
trogen receptors that disturb the
body's temperature control sys-
tem. Men receiving hormone
therapy for prostate cancer may
also experience them. Each in-
dividual can try to identify and
avoid personal hot flash trig-
gers, which can include spicy
food, alcohol or caffeine. About
three servings a day of un-
processed soy foods like tofu,
soymilk and edamame contain


phytoestrogens that help some
women (but note that research
shows inconsistent and general-
ly minor benefits). Weight
reduction if overweight and
smoking cessation may reduce
hot flashes, too. Some research
suggests that regular, moderate
exercise, as well as meditation
and yoga, can also help
decrease hot flash frequency.

Glutton: one who digs his
grave with his teeth.
-French Proverb


amounts monthly for help with
utilities, rent, and food and per-
sonal care items, such as toilet
paper and shampoo.
Funds come from many
sources. The Salvation Army,
United Way, state Department
of Children and Families, pri-
vate contributions, to name a
few. Mosaic Fertilizers recently
donated $25,000 for Christmas
and the South Fort Meade Mine
benefit golf tournament raised
$16,000.
Hardee Workforce provides a
20-hour employee trainee under
its Hardee Works program.
There is a $9,000 grant-in-aid
from the Homeless Coalition
for case management, intake
and purchase of the incidentals
people need beside food.
"We are really thankful to the
community for its partnership
with us through donations to the
Thrift Store, Christmas gifts,
canned and prepared foods and
. so many other ways," said
George.
She was recently notified that
the center will receive a
$100,000 Emergency Shelter
grant from the state Office of
Homelessness. The money is
used to help prevent homeless-
ness by providing such things
as a rent or mortgage payment,
emergency utilities, landlord-
tenant mediation.
George said the money has
been delayed because six agen-
cies protested the application
process but funds were to be
sent out at the end of
November.

poned in October and nas not

Daggett- and McKee will
appear as plaintiffs. The School
Board of Hardee County will be
represented by attorney Lori R.
Benton of Ford & Harrison in
Orlando, with Schools Super-
intendent David Durastanti and
School Board Chairman
Wendell Cotton in attendance.
"Now that the composition of
the School Board has been
changed significantly and we
have a new superintendent, I am
hopeful that they will want to
resolve this matter," Daggett
said this Tuesday.
"It has been five months now,
and I have yet to be given the
reason for the School Board's
decision to reject the nomina-
tion that was presented to them.
Maybe the superintendent and
board will be able to finally
share that information with me
during this process," he added.
Then-schools superintendent
Dennis Jones recommended
Daggett for annual renewal at
the June 26 School Board meet-
ing. On a 3-2 vote, that recom-
mendation was rejected. Board
-members Jan Platt, Gina
Neuhofer and Tanya Royal
voted against Daggett's contin-
ued employment.
No reason was given.
Royal, who served as chair-
man at the time, and Neuhofer
faced re-election this year, and
both lost their bids for another
term, as did Jones. -
Daggett was a 30-year
employee of the district.

Rumor travels faster, but it
don't stay put as long as truth.

A salesman said, "Insurance

Invest your life in teaching

it Took All Day To



Do The Washing


By LINCOLN SAUNDERS
Special To The Herald-Advocate
I interviewed Delois Johnson, my
grandmother.
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in a small house on
the outskirts of Zolfo Springs.
Q: When were you born?
A: It was a cold morning on the 21st
of February, in 1939, that I came into
the world to join my sister.
Q: Why were you given the first
and last
name you 0
have? '
A: My
first name,,
Deloi:s, was given to me by a family
friend and my middle name, Hildred,
was given tobme by my mother.
Q: What was the house like that
you grew up in? Bedrooms?
A: Our house was very small with
only two bedrooms, a little living room,
and a small kitchen, front and back
porches But when I was young the size
of the house was not very important
because we were happy and secure.
Q: Who was more strict? Your
mother or your father? Do you have
a vivid memory of something you did
that you were disciplined for?
A: My sister and I had been helping
our mother wash clothes; we did the
washing by building a fire with a wash
pot and it took all day to do the wash-
ing. When we finished we were walk-
ing across the pasture. We had matches
in our pocket and we were going to
make a little fire in the pasture. The lit-
tle fire turned into a BIG fire and we
had every one in Zolfo fighting the fire.
(No fire department back then). My sis-
:ter and I became frightened and we
went home and hid in the closet.
Mother came home and you can imag-
ine the rest.
Q: How did yourjamily earn
"ifoney? How did your family com-
pare to others in the neighborhood?
A: Our father was a farmer and we
had cows and hogs that he butchered
from time to time; We were pretty
much like everybody else in Zolfo.
Everybody worked hard and we had
very little money but at the time we
didn't know that we lacked anything
important.
Q: Did you have pets?
A: Animals were a necessity. Cows,
pigs, maybe a horse, sometimes we had
a dog that was used as a 'cow dog.' My
favorite was a newborn calf but it was
not considered a pet because we knew
that it would grow.
Q: What did you wear?
A: Being a 'tomboy' called for
jeans, shirts and boots. But when I went
to high school we were not allowed to
wear jeans all the time so I had to give
them up. My mother was an excellent
seamstress and she made all my
clothes. I had big skirts with big crino-
lines that were starched stiff and the
skirts stood out to be a full circle. My
mother cut patterns from Sears&
Roebuck catalogs and used them for
patterns for my clothes.
Q: What were you like as a child?
A: Growing up in Zolfo was fun. I
had a lot of friends. We rode bicycles
and young adults wanted to please their
parents, teachers, peers and it seems
today there are a lot of personalities to
contend with and everyone has a differ-
ent opinion as to what is right or
wrong.


Q: How did your parents feels
about the way you talked, who you
hung out with, and what you wore?
A: My parents accepted the way I
talked as well as my friends. As I told
you earlier we wanted to please our
parents. They also approved who m-,/
everywhere to and from school. We
made our fun things to play with: we .
built play houses, flying jennies, some-
times they didn't work and we got hurt.
We played ball, I was on the school's
basketball team. We had a swimming
pool in Zolfo and all summer we swam
"in the pool. Mother took my friends
and me and we stayed all day and
sometimes we had a picnic and always
went home with sunburn.
Q: Where did you attend school?
Were you a good student? What was
your favorite subject? Least?
A: I started to school at Zolfo
Springs Elementary and I loved every
minute. We were given our books the
first day of school and I took my books
home the first day and read them all.
My first reading book was "If I Were
Going." I still have the book and look
at it from time to time and remember
how much fun it was to read it. After
graduating form the eighth grade I went
to Hardee High School and graduated
in 1957. We are having our 50th class
reunion this year. I guess my least
favorite subject would be math but sci-
ence and social studies were also fun to
me.
Q: Who were your friends? And
do you still stay in touch?
A: To have friends that last a life-
time is wonderful and I have several
that we keep in touch. I don't see them
all the time, but when I do it's like we
are in grade school and high school all
over again because they truly become
your family.
Q: Did you have any heroes when
you were a child? ."
A: Every child has aA i maghmary idol
or hero but I don't remember having
one in particular. I think an important
goal of mine was to have a large farm
with lots of animals.
Q: Where did your family go on
vacations?
A: Bradenton Beach and it always
had a fascination for me because my
mother took us to the beach every sum-
mer. The shells and funny little fish
were something to pick up and save.
Q: What was the best gift you
remember receiving as a child?
A: What more could a child ask for
on Christmas morning than to get a
brand new red bicycle, it was called a
Western Flyer, with a padded seat and a
horn. I also received a gold locket. I
still have the locket.
Q: What big world events do you
remember from the time you were
growing up?
A: When World War II ended and all
the soldiers came home, my uncle was
one of the soldiers and I remember how
happy my father was when his brother
stepped off the train in Zolfo. Years
later the tragedy of John F. Kennedy
being assassinated. The most astonish-
ing thing was the first astronaut walk-
ing on the moon.
Q: What's different about growing
up today from when you were grow-
ing up?
A: Growing up today is very diffi-
cult for young people. There are a lot of
influences from outside of the family
structure. We were a close-knit family
like most everybody was and children


friends were. When we met someone
that was older or from another town
that did not know they simply said no
and that was the end of it. We did not
question them. As I told you that my
mother made all my clothes so she had
to approve them.
Q: What was your graduation
from high school like?
A: Graduation night was a lot of fun.
Our graduation was in the auditorium
downtown on Main Street in Wauchula.
It was very hot but when the 'Pomp
and Circumstance' was played we knew
that we were on our way to meet the
world.

Q: How did you meet your
spouse? What did you like about
him?
A: I met my husband, your grandfa-
ther, in Wauchula. He was attending
school at the University of Florida and
he had come home for the summer. As
usual, I thought he was handsome and
he was a good athlete.
Q: When did you get married?
How old were you?
A: We got married in 1958. I was 18
and he was 21.
Q: Where did you get married?
What was your wedding like?
A: We married in the house we are
living Iin now, only my husband's par-
ents owned the house at the time. It
was a small wedding with our parents
present and my sisters.
Q: What's your favorite story
about each of your children?
A: I don't have one particular story
but there are many happy times and a
lot of laughs.
Q: What makes you proud of your
children?
A: I am proud of my children for the
fine adults that they have become. They
care about others and they always try to
do what is right.
Q: What's the best thing about
being a parent? Grandparent?
A: The best thing about being a
grandparent is getting a second chance
to enjoy your children as you did with
your own children. The responsibility is.
much less.
Q: What's the hardest thing about
growing older?
-A: Growing old is a fact of life but
you enjoy each year, you do not dwell
on the future so much. You take each
day as it comes.
Q: What do you look forward to
now?
A: To continue to have good health
and watching my grandchildren grow
and becoming adults.
Q: What's your typical day like
now?
A: I have continued to work, which I
enjoy very much. My hours are flexible
so I have plenty of time to spend with
my family.


December 4, 2008, The Herald-Advocate 5A
Q: How is it different from daily
routines in the past?
A: When I was a young housewife
and mother I stayed home with my
children.
Q: What was most important to
your parents?
A: The most important thing my
parents tried to instill in us was to
always be truthful and to do what is
right even though a person might be
criticized.
Q: What have been the three
biggest news events during your life-
time and why?
A: The assassination of John F.
Kennedy, astronauts on the moon,
installation of computers and 9-11.
Q: What kinds of things bring you
the most pleasure now?
A: My work, seeing my children and
grandchildren excel.
Q: Do you feel differently about
yourself now from when you were
younger? How?
A: More confidence, small things do
not bother me as much. Knowing what
is important. Being true to myself.
Q: What's your most cherished

The girls didn't have much
time to recoup, going back on
the courts on Monday to host
Lake Placid and Tuesday to
greet Sebring. Tomorrow (Fri-
day), they got to Avon Park.
Next week's games begin
with a .girl/guy doubleheader
against Palmetto at home. The
varsity girls play at 6 p.m. and
the varsity boys take over about
7:30. Next Friday, Dec. 12,
there is a trip to play at Sarasota

Heather Mirabella was a one-
person team for Braden River
last week, scoring 29 points on
four treys, seven deuces and
three-of-three at the charity
stripe. Only one other Lady
Pirate was in double digits, with
Amanda Burnett collecting 10
points. Four other Lady Pirates
shared the remaining 18 points.
For Hardee, senior Sabrina
"Noonie" Holmes was the usual
scoring leader, dropping a pair
of treys and pair of deuces for
10 points. Freshman Ashley
Nichols nailed two of three at
the foul line and soph Ashley
Louis hit a pair of hoops.
Also participating were Lin-
dy Rossman, Ivette Cisneros,

Soccer Boys Defeat Devils


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee boys sbccer team
got its first victory of the season
just before the holiday break.
Hardee lost a tough match at
Braden River before taking
control in the Friday night game
just before the break.
This week, the 'Cats hosted
Avon Park on Tuesday and Fort
Meade on -Wednesday. Next
week is also a pair of home
games, Tuesday vs. Palmetto
and Thursday against DeSoto.
Then, there's a trio of games
before the Christmas break.
Hardee goes to DeSoto on Dec.
15, and greets Sarasota Booker
Dec. 15 and Sebring Dec. 18
Braden River
With a week between its first
two district game, the Wildcats
still had to battle both the
weather and the strong, well-
coached Pirates.
The weather was cold, which
always means a slow start for
both teams, noted Wildcat
coach Gilbert Vasquez. Braden
River got on the board first,
with a pair of well-placed kicks.
Senior Humberto Nolasco was
playing only his second game at
goalie, with a penalty shot and .a
corner kick getting in for the
Pirate scores.
"The wind played havoc with
the ball all night, creating a
nightmare for both goalies as its
projection would bend and
swerve. The Wildcat defense of
senior Isaac Vasquez, and
juniors Ezekiel Moran and
Murad Ottalah, were .able to
hold the Pirates to just those
two points in the first half.
The Pirates added another
pair of goals in the second half.
Hardee's only tally came from a
header by freshman Misael
Garcia, following up on a kick
by senior Efrain Ruiz. The Ruiz
shot was initially blocked by


the Pirate goalie, but was
dropped, allowing Garcia the
chance to score, making the
final 4-1.
Avon Park
On the Friday night before
vacation, Nov. 21, the Wildcats
went up against the Red Devils
of Avon Park on their turf.
Junior Ivan Narvaez kept pass-
ing the ball up from his mid-
center position for most of the
night. Directly behind him was
his freshman brother, starter
Edgar Narvaez. Working to-
gether, they allowed Wildcat
forwards Ruiz and junior Mar-
tin Vega to score a total of five
times before the final whistle.
The wind arid the cold affect-
ed both teams, slowing the pace
of the game and causing unpre-
dictable actions on the goal.
Nevertheless, only two shots at
goal were able to get by the
."Cat defense, reported Coach
Vasquez.
"The offense was especially
effective during the first half of
the game, allowing the Wildcats
two goals in four attempts
before the first half ended. Both
were netted by senior forward
Efrain Ruiz," said Vasquez.
"At the defensive line, junior
started Murad Ottalah, still
fresh from his season as a cross
country runner, was able to stop
multiple runs toward goal from
the Devils. Sophomore defen-
sive lineman Ezequiel Moran
also had a great game, stopping
several attempts from the Red
Devils in the center of the field
and close to the goal," noted
Vasquez.
"Finishing up the defensive
starting lineup was Isaac
Vasquez, who late in the second
half received a penalty card for
a tackle in the goalie's box. The
penalty shot went past senior
goalie Humberto Nolasco,
allowing a Red Devil score


We cannot control the evil tongues of others; but a good life
enables us to disregard them.


which threatened the Wildcat 3-
2 lead," commented the coach.
In the game for the first time
this season because he was on
the Wildcat football team was
senior Sofio Arroyo, who saw
plenty of action as a defender.
When he received a yellow card
late in the game, it allowed
Isaac Vasquez to return to the
game.
Along with sophomore right
wing Eduardo Macedo, former
DeSoto player Bladimir Cabal-
lero, also a sophomore, saw
action in a dual job at offense
and defense, stopping the
opposing team early in their
attempts to advance the ball, as
well as finding positions to
score. "Both played well.
While neither 'Cat has found
-the net this season, they are
shooting to goal more often,"
said Vasquez.
Misael Garcia started in the
right striker positions against
the Devils and was instrumental
in the final score, passing sever-
al times to his open teammates,
earning two assists, reported
Vasquez.
Late in the third quarter,
senior Francisco Rivera, who
missed the game against Braden
River due to illness, entered the
game in the left defensive posi-
tion. As the game entered the
last 20 minutes, Wildcat foot-
baller Martin Vega was moved
to his usual striker positions to
add to the Ruiz hat trick with
two more goals, ending the
game with a 5-2 victory for the
Wildcats, said Vasquez.
"While the Wildcat team is
relatively young compared to
this year's opponents, I am
happy with the effort and im-
provement by everyone on the
team. This team only needs a bit
more field experience; other-
wise, the boys are ready. My
'Cats are hungry!" concluded
Vasquez.

an evil tongue.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

THE CHAIN OF UNGRACE
One factor that moves me to forgive is that as a Christian I am
: commanded to. Jesus said, "If you have anything against anyone,
forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also forgive you your
trespasses."
There are at least four more reasons:
1.) Forgiveness halts the cycle of blame and pain. Without.it,
we remain bound to the people we can't forgive, held in their vise
grip.
2.) Forgiveness loosens the stranglehold of guilt in the sinner,
:even if a just punishment is still required
3.) Forgiveness places the forgiqer on the same side as the
party who did the wrong. We are noti ., different from thd wrong-
doer as we would like to think, for we too must ask our Heavenly
Father "Forgive us our debts."
Forgiveness is full and free. It originates from God. He tells us
how to do it. "Forgive us our trespassers as we forgive those who
trespass against us." Do we forgive others as we pray for God to
forgive us? Conditional, temporary? Or fidl and free?

Florida's First Dedicates

New Family Life Center


Over 400 people attended
Florida's First Assembly of God
Church's recent dedication ser-
vice for its new Family Life
Center.
The Family Life Center had
been a dream for many mem-
bers of the congregation over
the years. On Oct. 19, that
dream became a reality.
.The church had begun a debt-
elimination campaign prior to
Hurricane Charley in 2004. The
goal, all the while, being a fam-
ily life center. But once Charley
hit, the church had to redirect its
efforts to rebuilding the sanctu-
ary.
Just over three years after
moving back into the present
sanctuary building, and four
years after Charley, the church
conducted the long-awaited
dedication service.
The Rev. Terry Rayburn, dis-
trict superintendent of the Pen-
insula Florida Assemblies of
God, was on hand to lead the
congregation in the dedication
proclamation. Rayburn said,
"Six of our churches within our
district were destroyed by
Charley, including Florida's
First. All six have been rebuilt.
But you, Florida's First


Assembly of God, are the first
church to have constructed
another building besides your
original facility. You, again, are
Florida's first assembly to lead
the way into the future."
The Sunday worship service
and a catered dinner were both
held in the new facility. In addi-
tion to the congregation, five
previous pastors and their
spouses were also present:
Spence and Karen Decker,
Barry and Judy Taylor, Dale
and Debbie Everette, Peter and
Ruth Joudry, and Fred and
Barbara McDaniel
Bob and Debbie Lecocq, pre-
sent pastors, joined with the
congregation in welcoming all
of the guests. "We are truly
blessed to be able to stand on
the shoulders of those who have
gone before us," Lecocq said.
Other ministers on the
church's staff are Lyndsay
Naranjo, minister of music, and
Chris Rutledge, associate pas-
tor.
Another highlight of the day
was the receiving of a cash
offering given to help defray
the building expense. A goal
had been set for a $50,000 cash
offering. Noted Lecocq, "Even


in good economic times this
would be a lot of money, but we
are looking at the worst eco-
nomic times since the Great
Depression. Our people had
been encouraged to give by sev-
eral members of the congrega-
tion on the Sundays leading up
to Oct. 19.
"We were all encouraged to
give sacrificially," he contin-
ued. "The offering was received
and over $90,500 was collect-
ed." There were over 90 indi-
vidual giving units represented
in the offering.
The new Family Life Center
includes a commercial kitchen,
a second-story bridge between
buildings, an elevator, a cafe,
six classrooms, a seminar room,
a pantry, a large stage and one
of the largest rooms in Hardee
County. The entire facility is
handicapped accessible and
WiFi equipped.
With the recently rebuilt
sanctuary and rebuilt pavilion,
with a full-size basketball court,
the Family Life Center com-
pletes Florida's First Assembly
of God's dream of facilities to
help them minister to Hardee
County and beyond.

The new commercial kitchen features 1-1/2 ovens, a warmer, two commercial refrig-
erators, an ice maker, a tilt skillet, a griddle, a stove with six burners, a commercial
dishwasher, a mixer, and several work tables and sinks.

Harvest


Closes
There are two snook-harvest-
ing seasons closing this month.
The first season closure start-
ed on Monday in all of Florida's
Gulf of Mexico, Everglades
National Park and Monroe
County coastal and inland
waters. The harvest season for
snook will remain closed until
March 1 in these areas.
All other Florida waters will
close to the harvest of snook
beginning on Dec. 15. This
includes all Atlantic coastal and
inland waters, including Lake
Okeechobee and the Kissimmee
River. The harvest season for
snook will remain closed until
Feb. 1 in these areas.
The closed harvest seasons
protect Florida's valuable snook
populations during the colder
months, when snook are most
vulnerable, and help sustain and
improve the fishery for the
future.
No one gossips about other
people's Secret virtues.

ADVENT IS 'THE COMING'
Happy Advent! Before we rush from the Thanksgiving feast
to the Christmas festivities, the season of Advent offers us the
opportunity to maintain our spiritual equilibrium at a time when the
"busyness" of the holidays threatens to engulf our lives.
This year, many people have more to contend with than usual.
Economic upheavals are putting almost everyone at risk for
their jobs, their savings and their peace of mind. We're all feeling
the crunch. At a time when we're usually doing our bit as con-
sumers, rushing around buying Christmas presents, instead we're
hunting for bargains, paring down gift lists and praying that we can
make it through the uncertain days ahead.
The special focus of Advent can help us gain perspective.
Our former director, Father John Catoir, wrote: "The word
'Advent' is from the Latin adventus, meaning 'the coming' of Jesus
at His birth here on earth and also in His second coming . The
four weeks of Advent prepare us to celebrate the mystery of the
incarnation: God became human to bring us out of the darkness
into His eternal light. During Advent, liturgy stresses not only
penance, but also hope, light, joy and surrender."
The Messiah, the Savior, Jesus is coming.


We prepare ourselves not only by recalling the earth-shattering
moment of His coming 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem, but also His
coming to us in our own lives, day by day. Yet, perhaps God
expects something more of us than waiting. Perhaps He hopes we
will rush headlong into His comforting arms.
Remember the refrain of the lovely Christmas carol, "0 Come,
All Ye Faithful"? We sang it as children and probably .still do: "0
come, let us adore Him, 0 come, let us adore Him, 0 come, let us
adore Him, Christ the Lord." Just as our eternal God approaches
us, we can approach Him, returning some small part of the great
faith, hope and love He shares with us each moment of our lives.
But there's something more. We can adore Christ the Lord not
just in prayer and worship, but also in our relationships with His
people all His people. It's easy to love the lovable. It's easy to
love when we're well and happy and everything is going our way.
But when life is demanding, frightening or frustrating, it's a lot
more difficult to reach out to the people around us.
There's a saint you may not have heard of named Alphonsus
Rodriguez. He had a singular way of doing his job and living his
life. He imagined that every person who rang the doorbell was
Jesus Christ, and he'd smile and say to himself as he opened the
door, "I'm coming, Lord!"
As we look forward to Christmas and the New Year, we, too,
can resolve to meet everyone we encounter with the same joyful
greeting, "I'm coming, Lord!"

Justice For All
By Thomas E. Santarlas
Criminologist


AUTO THEFT PREVENTION
Auto theft is a property crime that is racing out of control,
leaving numerous victims in its dust.
The loss of a vehicle to theft causes the victim a multitude of
problems. Car thieves leave individuals and families without trans-
portation and cause insurance rates to skyrocket. There is time
away from work, an inability to shop for groceries and absenteeism
from school, college and church, along with an emotional scar that
may linger for a lifetime. This, in turn, causes a rippling affect on
the community resulting in economic loss, productivity deficien-
cies and a sense of fear.
Most car thieves will strike under the cloak of darkness. How-
ever, auto theft can easily occur at high noon absent community-
awareness!
Preventing auto theft has been an ongoing dilemma for many
years. Law enforcement can fight this criminal activity by engag-
ing in proactive patrol targeting high-risk areas such as shopping
centers, parking lots, parks and sparsely populated rural areas.
However it is not reasonable to expect law enforcement to be the
only line of defense in combating auto theft. Vehicle owners can
actively participate in the protection of their vehicles by deploying
a few important tactics.
Here are some suggestions to help protect against auto theft:
Disengage the ignition and take the keys when exiting the
vehicle.
-* Lock all of the doors and close the windows.
Do not hide a spare key on the vehicle. Everyone knows the
hiding places.
Store any valuables or packages in the trunk or glove com-
partment. The odds of vehicle burglary or theft increase when valu-
ables are in plain view.
*. Park your vehicle in areas that are open, well-lighted and
attended. Crooks tend to avoid committing crimes when potential
witnesses are present.
When parking on the street, make sure the wheels are turned
to the curb. Towing becomes more difficult with wheels angled to
the curb.
Install a car alarm to raise awareness of potential criminal
activity.
Utilize your garage by parking the locked vehicle inside.
Close and lock the garage door after exiting the vehicle.
Original paperwork such as title and registration should not
be stored in the vehicle. Keep these items in your wallet or purse.
It is easier to resell your car with possession of the original docu-
ments.
Etch the vehicle identification number on your windows,
trunk liner, doors and other areas of the vehicle. A car thief quick-

ly alters the VIN on a stolen vehicle. Etching the VIN in alternate
locations makes life miserable for the thief.
Consider a tracking device to assist the police in locating the
vehicle if stolen.
The most important tactic that you can employ is to maintain
a certain level of vigilance and awareness of your surroundings.
.Being alert to your environment and thinking ahead is half the bat-
tle. Don't make it easy for car thieves, especially during the holi-
day season!

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
A north wind brings stormy
weather, and a gossiping
tongue stormy looks.
Proverbs 25:23 (ME)

FRIDAY
Telling lies about someone is,
as harmful as hitting him
with an axe, or wounding
him with a sword, or shoot-
ing him with a sharp arrow.
Proverbs 25:18 (TLB)

SATURDAY
Some people make cutting
remarks, but the words of
the wise bring healing. Truth
stands the test of time; lies
are soon exposed.
Proverbs 11:18-19 (NLT)

SUNDAY
Gossips can't keep secrets,
so avoid people who talk too
much.
Proverbs 20:19 (NC1V

MONDAY
It is better to live in the cor-
ner of an attic than with a
crabby woman in a lovely
home.
Proverbs 21:9 (TLB)

TUESDAY
Words kill, words give life;
they're either poison or fruit
- you choose.
Proverbs 18:21(ME)

WEDNESDAY
A gentle answer will calm a
person's anger, but an
unkind answer will cause
more anger. Wise people
use knowledge when they
speak, but fools pour out
foolishness.

By Luis Castillo

Que tal amigos y amantes del mejor deported del mundo; les
envio un caluroso saludo en estos tiempos tan frios y les paso a
platicar sobre las finales del torneo de otofio 2008 de las categories
de elades y de una importantisima reunion de entrenadores y
duefios de equipos, celebrada la semana pasada. Comencemos!
Club America: Campeoii- :,.io En Infantil Y Juvenil
Tras celebrarse los juegos de la ronda final, las aguilas del
America se coronaron bicampeones en la categoria juvenile al der-
rotar por cuatro goles a cero al equipo de Arcadia. En el Torneo
pasado de Primavera, tambien se habian coronado campeones.
En tercer lugar quedo el equipo Argentina, que derroto por dos.
goles a uno a los aguerridos muchachos del Barcelona de Zolfo
springs, en un partido muy disputado de principio a fin.
Asimismo, en la categoria infantil, el America del entusiasta
entrenador, Timoteo Lopez, en un bonito partido, logro el
campeonato al derrotar a sus archirivales Chivas del Guadalajara
del compare Rosendo por un gol a cero. Con esta derrota, el
chiverio se hizo merecedor al mote del "ya merito", pues por
segunda vez consecutive jugo la finalisima y volvio a quedar
como subcampeon.
El tercer lugar en infantil, lo logro el Cruz Azul de Zolfo
Springs, el que en un partido muy parejo, empato a un tanto con el
Barcelona (antes Pumas) en el tiempo normal de juego. A instan-
cias del colegiado arbitral, se tiraron nueve tandas de penalty, pero
ya previamente se habia reportado la participacion irregular de dos
jugadores no registrados en el Barcelona; por lo que al incurrir en
esta clara violacion al Reglamento Interno, se decreto al Cruz Azul
como ganador del tercer lugar del torneo.
Posterior a los partidos, se procedio a la premiacion y entrega
de trofeos a los equipos y jugadores destacados del campeonato
recien concluido; dicha premiacion estuvo muy animada y a cargo
del president de la Liga de Edades, Abel Vargas, quien dirigio
unas muy emotivas y sentidas palabras alusivas a todos los
deportistas ahi presents.
Muchas Felicidades a todos!
Reunion Previa Al Torneo De Invierno 08
En su character de Presidente de la Liga de Edades, el sefior
Abel Vargas convoco a los entrenadores y duefios de equipos a la
reunion previa al Torneo de Invierno 08'-09', misma que se cele-


WEATHER SUMMARY
Scattered showers aided, crop,,growth last week with two to
four inches reported in the Paphandle. Central Florida received
between one to two inches of rainfall and less than an inch was
recorded in other areas around the State. Daytime highs were in the
70s and 80s; lows in the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Major cities averaged
temperatures in the high 60s, 70s, and 80s with lows in the 30s,
40s, and 50s.
FIELD CROPS
Mostly all field crops were complete. Late cotton harvest was
reported in Washington, Escambia, and Jackson counties. Jefferson
County reported good conditions for small grains. Sugarcane har-
vest continued in Glades County. Topsoil moisture was mostly ade-
quate in all areas. Subsoil moisture was mostly adequate in the
Panhandle and, southern Peninsula but short in the Big Bend and
central Peninsula.

VEGETABLES
Vegetables looked good in the fields but frost conditions
slowed the growth of cabbage, squash, eggplants, and tomatoes.
Over sixty percent of cabbage was planted in Flagler County.
Strawberries were in good condition in Bradford County. Sweet
corn was harvested in Hernando County and expected to be com-
plete this week. Other vegetables marketed were beans, cucumbers,
endive, escarole, okra, peppers, and radishes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle area, pasture condition was poor to good.
Growing conditions were good for small grains, clover, and rye-
grass grown for grazing. The growth of forage was slow due to the
cool, dry conditions. Some feeding of hay was necessary until win-
ter graze is available in a few weeks. Cattle condition ranged from
poor to. excellent with most in good condition. In the northern
areas, the condition of pasture was poor to good with most in poor
condition as sop'e pasture was again damaged by frost. There has
been very slow ,development of cool season forages due to dry
soils. Most coolseason forage has been planted and was emerging.
The summer grass was mostly gone. In the central area, pasture
condition was very poor to good due to drought and cold tempera-
tures. In Gilchrist County, frost damaged some pasture; however,
drizzle over the weekend was beneficial for winter wheat and rye
pastures. In Marion County, the permanent grass has gone dormant.
Most cows have calved and the poor pasture was pulling down the
condition of nursing cows. Cattlemen were feeding supplemental
hay. In the southwest area, pasture condition was very poor to good
with most in good condition. The pasture condition has deteriorat-
ed due toseasonal cool weather. Also, less pasture was fertilized
this fall due to the high cost of fertilizer. Statewide, cattle condition
ranged from very poor to excellent with most in good condition.

CITRUS
Cool evenings and moderately warm afternoons brought typi-
cal weather in citrus producing areas. Rainfall was nominal until
Sunday when heavy thunderstorms passed quickly over the State
bringing an inch of rainfall to the west coast and a half an inch to
the -center of the State. Fresh fruit harvested included ,4avel and
Anibersweet oranges, white and colored grapefruit, and Sunburst
tangerines., Over half of the juice plants were open the first half of
the week and ran early oranges and received packinghouse elimi-
nations. Some of the plants reopened on Friday and continued pro-
cessing fruit; by early December the remaining plants should be
opeti..Maturity levels were being reported higher than average on
most orange varieties. In some cases, thin skin and high ratios was
causing poor quality. Caretakers continued to apply limited supple-
mental sprays and fertilizers to the trees. Other activities included
limited mowing and general grove maintenance. Cutting down
trees infected with greening was part of the regular grove manage-
ment.

During dry seasons, the eland-the largest antelope in Africa-
can live for weeks without water.


bro el jueves 13 de noviembre pasado en las oficinas provisionales
de la Liga a las 18:00 hrs., en la que se conto con la mayoria de los
convocados y de la que se derivaron los siguientes Acuerdos:
1.) A cada jugador y en toda categoria de edades, se le exigi-
ra la comprobacion de su edad real y avalada por undocumento ofi-
cial (Birth Certificate, por ejemplo), mismo que sera entregado al
moment de su registration, acompafiado de la Hoja de Registro y
del pago correspondiente. Estos tres requisitos, deberan ser cumpli-
dos previamente a la Inauguracion del Torneo y cada encargado de
equipo sera el responsible de su cabal cumplimiento, a expenses
que de no cumplirse, le sea denegada su participation.
2.) Las categories implementadas para el Torneo de Invierno
mencionado, seran:
EDAD CATEGORIA CAMPO BALON #MIN. DE JUGS
8-10 infantil (U-11) Chico #4 .6 jugadores
11-12 juv."A" (U-13) Regular # 5 6 jugadores
13-15 juv."B" (U-16) Reglament. #5 7 jugadores
El servicio arbitral sera pagado previo a cada partido.
Se dijo, ademas, que a la fecha estan confirmados ocho
equipos a participar en Infantil. En la nueva categoria de Juvenil
"A", el camarada Juan Diaz formara un equipo; el compare
Rosendo formara otro; en los llanos del Pioneer Park se encuentra
entrenando a todo vapor otro equipo a cargo del amigazo Mario (a)
"Ardilla" y se comento que era muy possible former otro mas, con
lo que esta categoria arrancaria con al menos cuatro equipos. Hay
que echarle ganas Todos!!
Con esta nueva categoria, se ayudara a que jueguen los nifios
que van cumpliendo los once anios y ya no podran jugar en Infantil;
o bien, no son tan grandes o fuertes para jugar en la- categoria
Juvenil "'B".
Con esta categoria, se le ayudara pero en grandes proporciones


a todos los pequefiines de seis, siete, ocho y nueve afios a que en
realidad jueguen y compitan deportiva y lealmente contra nifios de
una edad muy proxima o cercana; y no tengan que exponerse con
gran temor a una patada, balonazo, empujon, golpe, etc, de otro
jugadores de diez, once, doce y hasta trece arios a los que se les
venia obligando a enfrentarseles. Habia nifios que decian a su
entrenador que mejor se quedaban en la banca y no'enfrentar a
nifios mayores que ellos, o bien, algunos iban perdiendo interest en
este tan apasionante deported.
Pero, al fin, prevalecio la cordura, y aunque aun no estan muy
convencidos algunos equiperos y aun existen algunas dudas y
comentarios contrarios a esta media, les aseguro que fue la mejor
decision que se pudo tomar. El tiempo nos ubicara en lajusta pro-
porcion de nuestras decisions.
Tambien se comento que en Juvenil "B" se tienen confir-
mados seis equipos hasta el moment.
3.) Otro aspect muy important que se trato, fue el rela-
cionado al cambio y transferencia de jugadores entire los equipos de
edades locales. El acuerdo al que se Ilego, fue que: El cambio y
transferencia de jugadores, solo se hara por consentimiento expre-
so (por escrito) del entrenador o duefio del equipo en que previa-
mente haya jugado tal o cual jugador hacia el entrenador del
equipo solicitante de dicho. element.
A segun se comento, esta fue una acertada decision, pues se
trata de proteger y apoyar a los-entrenadores y duefios de equipos
que a la fecha han invertido much tiempo, dinero y esfuerzos en
descubrir, enrolar, entreniar y dirigir a sus jugadores y no es just
que alguna otra persona en forma abusiva se los arrebate para for-
mar otro equipo o como refuerzo.
Pues bien amigos, esto es todo por esta occasion, espero que se
la pasen bien y que prosperen en todo cuanto se propongan, pero
ante todo, que Dios me los bendiga hoy, mafiana y por siempre!

It was 80 minutes of running
without any scoring.
The Lady Wildcats battled
the Lady Red Devils for nearly
an hour and a half without any-
one getting the ball in the goal.
It was the second of two
games in the week before the
Thanksgiving holiday.
Play resumed on Tuesday
with the first of four home
games. Hardee hosted Avon
Park on Tuesday and Fort
Meade on Wednesday.
Next week's games are at
home Tuesday against Palmetto
and home Tuesday against
DeSoto. Then, it's games at
DeSoto on Dec. 15, home for
Sarasota Booker on Dec. 16 and
home for Sebring on Dec. 18 to
end the run before the Christ-
mas break.


In the Nov. 18 game at Brad-
en River, the Hardee soccer
squad lost 8-0.
"We played well and tried to
set a defense. In the first half,
we gave up two bad goals and
the score was only 2-0," said
Head Coach David Hatch.
During the second half,
Hatch said, "The Lady Wildcats
played more offense in hopes of
scoring. However, Braden
River scored six more times.
The opposing team did very
good at passing and running the
ball," he commented.
He also felt that the
Lady'Cats were "a little intimi-
dated by the other team."
Injuries also affected the
game when Lady 'Cat Maria
Jaimes sprained an ankle.
Hatch commended the per-
formances of Daisy Escoto on
defense throughout the game


and goalie Kristina Garcia.
He said that the girls would
continue to work on their
defense and try to be more
aggressive offensively.
"I'm happy with the effort of
all the girls, even though the
results don't show on the score-
board. We are getting better
each game," he concluded.
Practice during the week
helped as the girls played at
Avon Park on Friday night,
Nov. 21.
The game ended in a 0-0 tie.
"The girls had many chances to
take the lead, but could not cap-
,italize on them. They all played
well defensively, especially
Kristina Garcia at sweeper and
Maria Jaimes in goal," summed
up Hatch.

Hoop Boys Start Slow


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"It's a brand new team, with a
lot of new faces."
Coach Vance Dickey talked
Monday about his team's game
during the Thanksgiving holi-
day break.
The 'Cats will practice most
of this week, before hosting
Avon Park.tomorrow (Friday).
The JV squad gets its first
action at 6 p.m. and the varsity
clashes at 7:30.
Next week's games are
Tuesday hosting Palmetto in a
varsity-only girls/guys duo,
with the girls playing the early
game. Next Thursday; Hardee
boys host Sarasota Booker.
The Wildcats traveled to
Bradenton last Tuesday to take
on Braden River in the Pirates'
Den.
"It was our first game and
their second. We started out
slowly-and were down 14 at the
half'because of some turnovers,


dangerous passes which result-
ed in easy points for Braden.
River.
"By the third quarter, we
began getting it together and
got within two points, before
we fell back on bad habits and
forgot to stay focused," de-,
scribed Dickey.
He mentioned the good work
of junior Jarrell Ellis, who had
-24 points and 14 rebounds,
most in the second half. Dickey
also noted that freshman Jajuan
Hooks "came off the bench and
played a good floor game."
Hardee was down 15-8 at the
end of the first period and
dropped behind 29-15 at half-,
time. Holding the Pirates to just
four points in the third frame,
Hardee put 14 on the board to
make it 33-29. Both teams bat-
tled in the fourth period, with
Braden River taking the home
court advantage for the 51-45
'victory. ""
Only two Pirates were in dou-


ble digits, with Kareeri Jackson
with 14 points and Franchon
Parramore a dozen.
For Hardee, Ellis had 10
apiece in the third and fourth
quarters to finish with his 24.
points. Classmate Antjuan
Jones had three points in each
period for 12 points. Senior
Postene Louisjeune added four.-
points.
Others seeing action, for
Hardee were senior Nolan Neu-
hauser, sophs Tre' Anderson,
Justin Bromley and D'Vonte
Hooks and freshman Keshun
Rivers. Senior Lucas Juarez and
soph Carl Brown did not make
the trip.
The biggest liar in the world is
They Say.

SPOTLIGHT
On July 18, 1960, Sam and
Sandy Rodenberger were united
in marriage. They had three
children, two girls and a boy,
and have six grandchildren.
They both were raised around
Quakertown, Pa., with Sam re-
tiring as an electrician and
Sandy as a charge nurse.
Sam's interest is making
wooden yard ornaments and
signs as well as golf. Sandy's
interest is reading and relaxing.
They are both interested in
camping, dancing and playing
alley.
Sandy's highlight of her life
was when she was in an appren-
ticeship with Colleanos, a
trapeze artist for the Ringling
Brothers Circus. She said this
was a very exciting time in her
life, to know and .work under
this.well-known artist_.....,
Sam and Sandy have lived in
our park since they retired four
years ago, never realizing when
they came to Pioneer Creek
they would not need to go any
further as they have bought a
park model that looks like a log
cabin and are here to stay.
They were drawn to stay in
Pioneer Creek because of the
welcome and kindness they re-
ceived from everyone, and that
want-to-help-you attitude. We
are so very happy they are now
our winter friends.
FROM THE DESK
OF REGGIE
At this time of Thanksgiving,
we want to be thankful for our
abilities to come to Florida and
enjoy the great winter friends,
who are kind and caring. Our
Thanksgiving dinner was a
large endeavor, with many to
enjoy food and fellowship. We
need to be grateful to Bud and
Wanda and share with them
how we feel about all their hard
work, and to the Wilder Corp.
for the turkeys. We have much
to be thankful for.

A garden is a lovesome thing!

The goal of life is living in
agreement with nature.

Never yet was a springtime,
when the buds forgot to
bloom.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Many visitors come our way
during a special holiday and
this year was no exception.
Donia Hughes, who now lives
in North Florida, spent two
weeks with son Donald
Samuels and his wife, Mary.
All had a wonderful Thanks-
giving. Remember to continue
to pray for Janie Arnold, as she
is still in lots of pain. Janie is
Mary's sister.
Johnmark, Amy, Rebeka and
Aaron were short-time visitors.
They are in the process of mov-
ing furniture, and even though it
was a short visit Carol and
Johnny were delighted to see
them. Randall and Faye Davis,
Edith Bassett and Norma miss-
ed visiting with them, as they
went to West Virginia for
Thanksgiving.
Steve Haney went to Virginia
hunting and then stopped by his
daughter's, Mary Shannon and
family, for Thanksgiving. She
had not been able to make the
trip for the Family Feast earlier
this month.
Sherman Cooper left Nov. 20
to go to North Georgia hunting.
Bud Abbott left Nov. 24, and
then Connie, Ashley and I went
up Wednesday. We picked up
Ruthie, Connie's sister, at her.
home, and the four of us and
two dogs had a fun trip.
Connie's mother and father,
Tom and Charlotte Braddock,
were on the way home from. a
mission ,trip and stopped to,
spend Thanksgiving with their
daughters. Other Georgia
neighbors joined in the festivi-
ties. We had a super Thanks-
giving at the Abbott cabin.
With all these men off hunt-
ing, hopefully our next supper
at Fort Green Baptist will be
featuring venison! Of course,
everyone could love it so much
they don't want to share! This


was Sherman's first kill in near-
ly two years.
Darlinda Lambert was in
town over the holidays. She
now lives in Blairsville, Ga.
Dena, Darlinda's daughter, has
a very cute little boy named
Quinton Chase, and he is too
pretty to be a boy! Darlinda said
her parents, Ruby and Jim
Shiver, were over at Lake Ar-
buckle. It is always good to see
friends who have moved away
from our area.
Lee and Chrysta Chancey
hosted the Keene family this
Thanksgiving. All of the Keene
sisters, Jewel, Doris, Nadine
and Faye and their families,
were present in addition to
Chrysta's parents, Betty and
Clint Walker. After the feast,
there were enough relatives for
a rousing game of volleyball
and other games. Brother
Danny and Bonnie Keene went
to Albany to have Thanksgiving
with their son, Drew, and fami-
ly.
I visited Miss Polly last
Tuesday before Thanksgiving.
While I was there the hospice
nurse brought her a Thanksgiv-
ing meal. It was a pre-cooked
feast consisting of turkey,
mashed potatoes, cornbread
stuffing, gravy, cranberry sauce
and a gallon of tea. The nurse
said they had a successful yard
sale and were able to do this for
quite a few of their clients!
That is what Thanksgiving is
about, being thankful and doing
for others. Polly and her hus-
band, Tino, still need our
prayers.
Dennis, Beth and Jimmy
Sasser were North Florida visi-
tors this past week at their hunt-
ing camp.
Ronnie Abbott got a huge 10-
point in Hardee County. That
proves you do not have to leave
the county to get the big one,


just have a place to hunt locally.
Jean Sadler, Pat Albritton and
the parents of Abby Duke,
Daniel and Amy enjoyed
watching her excitement at
Disney with- the "Beary Merry
Christmas." Most of the fun is
watching the excitement of a
little one. Jean said they had a
good Thanksgiving with about
20 family members in atten-
dance.
Paul Clark is back home from
his radiation. They are not plan-
ning on any chemo at this time.
He said he goes back for a
checkup in six months. Please
continue to pray for Paul.
Joyce Coker is sick with the
mess that seems to be going
around.
Betty Waters went to Frost-
proof Sunday morning to have
another Thanksgiving dinner
with her son and family, who
were not able to come to Fort
Green on turkey day. His wife's
mother is very sick and needs
prayer.
Fort Green Baptist will have
a covered-dish dinner on Dec.
14, honoring our pastor, who
will be leaving. He will be
working with the Orange
Blossom Association starting
new churches.
Please remember to pray for
all the sick and please call with
any news.

STUDENTS ATTEND RALLY


WayBack Wh'en


COURTESY PHOTO
Eighty-six high school students from Greg Mann's history class went to Sarasota on Oct. 23 to see presidential hope-
ful John McCain speak. The Republican Party of Sarasota offered to provide $700 to transport 50 students by char-
ter bus to the rally. Local businesses Albritton Growers and Armegedon Apiaries as well as the Republican Party of
Hardee County donated another $700 so that all of the students could attend. The students stood in line with pro-
testers and supporters for two hours until the rally began, and 30 randomly chosen students sat on the stage behind
McCain. When the rally was over, some of the students were able to shake hands with McCain and his wife, Cindy.


Garden Dirt
-' By Joyce Butsch
Master Gardener


In this column I will be sharing with you activities, thoughts,
information and tidbits on gardens and gardening in Wauchula. I
will do this with the help and input from fellow members of the
Wauchula Garden Club.

The Current Garden
December is a good time to add new trees and shrubs to your
landscape. The cooler months give them a chance to become estab-'
lished before the intense heat of summer. Remember to keep them
watered.
For new color in the garden this month, plant cool-season

favorites: calendula, dianthus, snapdragons, petunias and pansies,
just to name a few.,.
Looking for a holiday plant? .Pay a visit to local garden cen-
ters for'the many selections of poinsettias, cactus, kalanchole and
,chrysanthemums. Blooming potted plants make long-lasting and
inexpensive holiday gifts.
If you haven't got your bulbs in the ground for summer bloom,
now is the time to get planting. Amaryllis, gladiolus, rain lily,
crinium and daylily can still be planted. Proper spacing and plant-
ing depth are important for successful growth. Most'garden centers
can provide a depth chart and instructions for bulb planting.

The Blooming Garden
Rosemary is my' favorite herb and is in garden centers now,
shaped like little Christmas trees. These make a festive table deco-
ration, not only for their eye appeal but they give off a wonderful
soothing aroma. You t~an add the leaves to any poultry dish for a
mouth-watering flavor.
The plants would also make a nice gift since "Rosemary is for
Remembrance." After the holiday season they can be planted in a
protective spot out in the garden.

The Bountiful Garden
This past spring I planted an' ornamental sweet potato plant
(chartreuse "Marguerite") in the spot where a hurricane-damaged
tree had been .removed. The lime-colored leaves quickly covered
the unsightly stump that remained and made an eye-stopping dis-
play.
When the cool nights arrived, I dug the cold-sensitive plant
and, to my delight, harvested several plump orange sweet potatoes.
My husband and I enjoyed eating the potatoes, but I'm saving one
to sprout for' next spring's garden. Other varieties are available:
"Blackie," which has'dark green leaves, and another that has tri-
colored leaves.


The Armchair Garden
Armchair garden enthusiasts, give a read to "The Christmas
' Garden Affair." This is just one of several delightful gardening
mysteries by Ann Ripley available at the Hardee County Public
Library.
Also, an information-filled book for both beginner and experi-
enced gardeners is "Florida Gardener's Guide: Revised Edition" by
Tobi MacCubbin and Georgia B. Tasker, Cool Springs Press. This
book offers plant recommendations plus 'large full-color photos.
Happy gardening!
Joyce Butsch is a master gardener and is a member of the Wau-
chula Garden Club, which meets the third Wednesday of each
month at the Wauchula Woman's Club building.

13.) Tampa at Carolina Bucs play on Monday Night
Football. Both teams sport a 9-3 record. This may be picking with
heart over the head but... Tampa 24 Carolina 21.
14.) Miami at Buffalo Dolphins put their 7-5'record on the
line at 6-6 Buffalo. Like the Tampa game, this may be the heart
over the head but since Miami obtained a real QB in 2008, my faith
is in fellow Marshall Alum Chad Pennington. Miami 23 Buffalo
20.
15.) Jacksonville at Chicago Bears at home take the win.
Chicago 27 Jax 20.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, what a Thanksgiving weekend! It was a
great time for turkey and dressing plus rivalry games across college
football. How about my Gators 45-13 prediction? Almost on the
mark, wasn't it? Now it's on to Atlanta where UF takes out
Alabama on the way to a National Championship. The Gators seem
to be on a rampage that no team will be able to stop.
Coaching rumors are coming to reality. Sylvester Croom is out
at Mississippi State. Will Charlie Strong get a job? Miami of Ohio
and Bowling Green also let their coaches go this weekend. Phil
Fulmer went out a winner at Tennessee. Don't be surprised to see
him resurface somewhere. The Vols will turn over the reins to Lane
Kiffin. Will Clemson give their "interim coach" the job after beat-
ing South Carolina? Syracuse will come up with a coach soon.
Brian Kelly and Turner Gill are the leading candidates. Kelly is
rumored to be the front runner at Washington.
The next article will break down the Bowl Games which will
be selected this Sunday. Florida should be in the National
Championship game while USF will probably be in the St.
Petersburg Bowl. FSU is up for grabs but the Gator bowl would
love to have the Seminoles.
Now let's look at this week's Bill 0' Fare for Championship
Weekend
1.) Florida vs. Alabama SEC Title Game. Gators will take
care of business with a bigger prize in their sight. Percy Harvin will
be out but others will step up. Gator defense will dictate the game
while controlling the QB. Florida 35 Alabama 17.
2.) USF at West Virginia It is senior night and a "White
Out" is plafined to honor Pat White, the all-time rushing QB in col-
lege history. Mountaineers win big. WVU 38 USF 13.
3.) Boston College vs. Virginia Tech Tampa Stadium wel-
comes all 500 BC fans and the few Hokie fans that can read a road
map. With local tickets given to Boys and Girls clubs and such,
there should be 20,000 fans at this game. Boston College 20
Virginia Tech 17.
4.) Ball State vs. Buffalo MAC Championship Game is on
tap here. Turner Gill has Buffalo in its first bowl game. It will be
his last as he gets a better job. Ball State is too good for Buffalo.
Ball State 35 Buffalo 13.
5.) Louisville at Rutgers Scarlet Knights complete a turn-
around season with their 7th win over a struggling Cardinal team
with a coach on the hot seat. Rutgers 34 Louisville 24.
6.) Pitt at Connecticut Both teams leave the stadium 8-4 as
Donald Brown has a big day for the Huskies. Pitt will lose the game
on bad coaching decisions. UConn 31 Pitt 27.
7.) Army vs. Navy One of the best venues in all of college
football. Navy is stronger. Johnson left a good nucleus before head-
ing to Georgia Tech. Navy 30 Army 14.
8.) East Carolina at Tulsa CUSA Championship Game.
Tulsa has been one the nations most prolific scoring teams in 2008.
East Carolina has wins over Virginia Tech and West Virginia. This
should be a close game. Tulsa 38 East Carolina 30.
9.) Southern Cal at UCLA Trojans are in the Rose Bowl.
The Bruins have upset the apple cart in the past but not this year.
USC 44 UCLA 17.
10.) Arizona State at Arizona Even game between two
rivals in the desert. Arizona 28 ASU 24.
11.) Missouri vs. Oklahoma Big 12 Championship Game.
This game was destined to be controversial from the start. In a
three-way tie, there is no other way to pick one without making the
other two angry. Oklahoma has a history of laying eggs in big
games in post season. If not this one, the Sooners will in the BCS
Championship Game. Oklahoma 44 Missouri 24.
12.) Cincinnati at Hawaii A good season-ending vacation
for the Big East Champions. UC 27 Hawaii 13.

Orange Blossom RV News
By Marilyn Catt


There are a few "old-timers"
from 1985, when Orange
Blossom Park was first opened,
that are still residents in the
park. Mary Catozzi, lot 44, is
the only one left on Valencia
Street that was here in 1985 and
we are very sorry to have heard
that she will be leaving us this
season.
Ardath McDonald, Geneva
Miller, Freddie Stahle, Don
Ackenberger, John and Lor-
raine Grigsby, Herb and
Marilyn (Mooney) Catt, and of
course, L.V. and Ruth Ellis and
Richard Ellis. There may be a
few more that I have over-
looked and, if so, please, forgive
me.
We have many new and
much younger folks now in the
park and we are thankful for
them, especially this Thanks-
giving Day. One of the newer
ladies, Claire Morin, lot 95A,
was in charge of the
Thanksgiving dinner and, from
all reports, 86 people enjoyed a
wonderful meal! Many said it
was the most enjoyable meal
ever served at Orange Blossom,
thanks to Claire and all who
helped with the dinner.
As I write this ahead, on
Friday, at 6 p.m. we had an
enjoyable HOBO dinner. In the
future we will have shuffle-
board at 7 p.m. and also various
games.
Saturday, we have coffee and
doughnuts. On Dec. 6, it will be
pancakes and sausage and
euchre will be played at 7 p.m.
Starting Sunday, at 8:30 a.m.,
our nondenominational services
begin with Pastor Case, who
has been here with us for sever-
al years. He will also be direct-
ing the volunteer choir, with
practice at 3 p.m. on Thursdays.
Everyone is invited to attend
Sunday evenings at 7 p.m.,
karaoke with Billy and


Charlotte, lot 54, doing the hon-
ors.
Monday at 1 p.m., craft
classes will be starting. Every
year there are various, new and
interesting things to make and
you will be sure to find these
classes interesting and fun.
Bingo is at 7 p.m.
Every Tuesday at 11 a.m.
there is an exercise class. At 7
p.m. there are cribbage and
Pokeno.
Wednesday, at 8 a.m., we
have coffee and doughnuts. At
9:30, there is coed shuffleboard.
The boys have made many new
improvements on the shuffle-
board court, so we are hoping
all will get out there and enjoy
the-sport. Line dancing class is
at 11 a.m. by Eddy and euchre
is played at 7 p.m.
Thursday, at 9:30 a.m., there
are coed shuffleboard, exerciseI
class at 11 a.m., choir practice
at 3 p.m. and bingo at 7 p.m.
On Friday at 7 p.m., it is
shuffleboard and also games.
We have many new faces in the
park this year, so let's all go out
and get acquainted.
Our caretakers have been
doing a wonderful job of spruc-
ing everything up and refinish-
ing the roads, so our park looks
great, good job, boys! L.V. has
been out pruning, planting and
watering the trees and flowers,
making sure everything is
growing well.
We understand there are
some who will not be able to
return this year due to illness
and we are very sorry to hear
that news. At the present, I do
not have all of your names, but
will try to have the details next
week, so we can keep you in
our prayers.
"To everything there is a sea-
son and a time to every purpose
under the heaven." Ecclesiastes
3:1.


The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by
then your body and your fat are really good friends.
