Help To Get Him
From Wreckage
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A small single-engine aircraft
crashed into a Hardee County
orange grove on Sunday morn-
ing.
The pilot of the plane, Gary
Smith, 63, survived the impact
and was able to crawl from the
wreckage.
Smith was taken by ambu-
lance to Florida Hospital Wau-
chula and later transferred by
medical helicopter to Tampa
General Hospital, where he was
listed in serious condition as of
early Wednesday morning.
According to Public Informa-
tion Officer Jill Peve of Hardee
County Emergency Manage-
ment, the plane crashed into the
grove at Dansby Road in Wau-
chula at 9:28 a.m. on Sunday.
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
responded to the scene, with the
first unit arriving at 9:39 a.m.,
she said. The Hardee County
Sheriffs Office also responded.
Those responders found a
single-engine aircraft flipped
upside down in the orange
grove just off the road, Peve
said. In -its descent, -it had
clipped down power lines in the
area, she added.
There was no fire or fuel
spill, she reported, nor any
injuries or damages to people or
property on the ground.
Capt. Richard Dick of the
Sheriffs Office said the pilot,
Smith, had been flying from
Clermont to Fort Myers when
the crash occurred. Peve noted
the pilot had been experiencing
engine problems, and had
attempted an emergency land-
ing in the grove.
Dick described the area the
pilot chose as a section of a
grove that was being reset.
As the plane descended,
however, it struck the power
lines and overturned.
Peace River Electric Cooper-
ative workers responding to the
report of a power outage made
the initial call. Linemen Van
Crawford and J.R. Gough
helped emergency crews lift the

'Tis The Season CHRISTMAS GIVING


For Thievery

Several Businesses Hit .


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A number of local businesses'
were struck by thieves this past
weekend.
Restaurants seemed to be the
prime target, with break-ins
reported in Zolfo Springs, Wau-
chula and Bowling Green. A
supermarket in Wauchula Hills
also Was hit.
Law enforcement authorities
say all the burglaries occurred
sometime overnight Saturday
and into the early-morning
hours of Sunday'. Two appear to
be related.
Hit were Rooster's Restau-
rant, the Double J Restaurant,
the Wauchula Supermarket and
Gloria's Restaurant.
Capt. Richard Dick of the
Hardee County Sheriffs Office
said break-ins at Rooster's
Restaurant on SR 66 in Zolfo
Springs and Gloria's Restaurant
on U.S. 17 in Bowling Green
seem to match each other and
some others reported in a neigh-
boring county.


"We do feel they are related,"
Dick said. "There were also
some similar burglaries in Polk
County."
In those instances, he said,
the thieves broke out a plate-
glass window or door, went
inside, snatched the cash regis-
ter and left.
Both cash registers from the
Hardee County burglaries have
been recovered. Dick said
Rooster's was found alongside
U.S. 17 between Zolfo Springs
and Wauchula, near the Cielito
Lindo Club. Bowling Green
Police Chief John Scheel said
Gloria's was discovered on the
side of U.S. 17 about one mile
into Polk County, at Bill Bryan
Road.
The chief noted very little
money was recovered, adding
that 38 cents was found on the
ground around the register from
Gloria's Restaurant.
The registers are being exam-
ined for physical evidence,
along with the crime scenes..

Hardee County residents showed the Christmas spirit with contributions to last week's
fifth annual "Toys For Tots" drive by U.S. Postal Service letter carriers and employees
in conjunction with the U.S. Marine Corps Reserves. People can still give a new
unwrapped toy by taking it to their local post office as the need in Hardee County is
great. Coordinating the drive locally were local postmasters (from left) D. Williams-

The Heartland Chorale production Friday night in Wauchula
was excellent.

O.J. Simpson, 61, recently received a prison sentence from 9
to 33 years for kidnapping and armed robbery. His lawyers will
appeal the Las Vegas verdict.
He earned millions as a football player, actor and ad pitchman.
Simpson was also famous for getting an innocent verdict in a mur-
der trial for the deaths of his estranged wife Nicole and her friend
Ronald Goldman.

The Fort Meade Miners will play for a state 1-A football
championship Friday night in Orlando against North Florida
Christian. Fort Meade has won one state title and about a half
dozen first runners-up under excellent head coach Mike Hayde.

The powerful 5-A Lakeland Dreadnaughts will host Pensacola
Pine Forest Friday night at Thomas Bryant Stadium and Bill Castle
Field. Castle has been head coach at Lakeland for about 30 years.
and has been selected as Florida high school football, coach of the
Scenuiry. :. .. . .O.. ..l.

The hamlin orange harvest season is underway in Hardee and
the rest of central Florida. The loaded trailers contain about 500
boxes of oranges weighing 45,000 pounds.

Congratulations to the Florida Gators for defeating Alabama
and reaching the national title game next month against Oklahoma.
Florida is an early three-point favorite.

The Hardee Chamber of Commerce sponsored an excellent
Christmas parade Saturday evening in Wauchula.

State Sen. J.D. Alexander, a Republican from Lake Wales who
represents-Hardee County, will be the Florida Senate's top budget
chairman, reported Joe Follick in the Lakeland Ledger Dec. 4.
Alexanider has been named chairman of the Senriate Ways and
Means Committee that'`versees the state's budget of over $60 bil-
lion which has shrunk some this year due to declining tax revenues.



MEDIATION
Continued From 1A


Daggett offered a similar
report on the session. "I can tell
you that we were unable to
mediate a settlement and that I
am proceeding forward with the
lawsuit," he also said on
Tuesday.
"The mediation scheduled
was a voluntary mediation, re-
quested by their attorney,"
Daggett explained, adding, "As
they requested the mediation .
I was optimistic last week that
we would be able to resolve this
matter."
A resolution to his federal
civil-rights claim against the
Hardee County School Board
did not come.
"At this point, I am under-
standably disappointed .about
yesterday's outcome. I believe
that it would have been in the
best interest of the schools for
this to have been resolved," said
Daggett.
The lawsuit has been set on
the October 2009 trial docket.
"We will be scheduling depo-
sitions to begin sometime in
January," Daggett said. "At that
.time, I should know what the
board members based their
decision on."
Attending the mediation
hearing were Durastanti,
School Board Chairman
Wendell Cotton and attorney
Lori R. Benton of Ford &
Harrison in Orlando. For the
plaintiffs were Daggett and
Robert F. McKee of the Tampa
firm of Kelly & McKee.
By instruction of the. media-
tor, Hanley, all discussions and.
settlement offers are confiden-
tial and may not be released,
both Durastanti and Daggett


explained.
Daggett, a 30-year employee
of the school district who most
recently served as director of
transportation, was recom-
mended for renewal of his
annual contract by then-schools
superintendent Dennis Jones at
the June 26 meeting of the
Hardee County School Board.
That recommendation was
rejected on a 3-2 vote, with
board members Jan Platt, Gina
Neuhofer and Tanya Royal vot-
ing against Daggett.
Board attorney Gavin
O'Brien told board members at-
the time that a reason for rejec-
tion of the superintendent's rec-
ommendation must be given.
No reason was given, and
Daggett's last day was June 30.

Det. Russell Conley is han-

Capt. Brett Dowden is investi-

of Bowling Green.
Dick also said the Double J,
Restaurant on U.S. 17 in Wau-
chula and the Wauchula Super-
market in Wauchula Hills were
hit by thieves this past week-
end. Again, glass was smashed.
These two crimes, however,
do not appear to be related to
the incidents at Rooster's and
Gloria's, he said.
Investigators here are also

Dick described the plane as
an "experimental aircraft" made
from a kit.

the area as power crews

tors examined the scene.
Investigation into the crash
has been turned over to the
Federal Aviation Administra-
tion.

DOT's five-year plan which
was presented to it on Thursday.
"We have bent over back-
wards to. help. I see no con-
struction in the next five years
and that bothers me. We have
been talking about four-laning
all of U.S. 17 for 50 years or
longer. We want to get this
done. It's our turn. It's just our
turn," said Commission Chair-
man Dale Johnson,
Commissioner Minor 'Bryant
was the lone dissenting vote in
the motion to reject the DOT
plan. He expressed appreciation
for DOT listening to the 'coun-
ty's requests andifor other road-
work which has been done:
DOT representative 'Ben
Walker presented the new- five-
year plan. He also mentioned
that there are two projects fund-
ed in this fiscal year, resurfac-
ing U.S. 17 from Tropicana
Avenue to SR 62, and from SR
62, to Bowling Green. Each
will take about $2 million.
The five-year plan (2009-10
through 2013-14) includes
resurfacing of 5.3 miles of SR
64 from Morgan Grice Road in
the Highlands County Line for
$5.6 million in 2010-11; con-
struction of sidewalks on
Alamo and Keeton, roads lead-
ing to the K-8 school; traffic
signal upkeep; two Wauchula
Airport projects; and trans-

chula Wildcat team of 1933,

ule.

50 YEARS AGO
Dynamite Found Under
Bridge Over Big Charlie: Boat-
ers on Big Charlie Creek will
never know just how close they
came to violent death last week-

kingdom come.

Notes

Q: Do soy-based foods low-
er blood cholesterol?
'A: Although the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA)
currently allows soy-based
foods to feature health claims
promoting their heart-health
benefits, new research suggests
that the link between soy and
cholesterol is not as solid as sci-
entists once thought. A recent
study tested the impact of 24
grams of soy protein a day on
blood cholesterol and found no
significant effect. (As a refer-
ence, 1 cup fortified soymilk
provides about 6-7 grams of soy
protein, 1/2 cup tofu has rough-
ly 10 grams and 1/4 cup roasted
soy nuts about 11 grams.) Other
recent studies have also sug-
gested that we may not be able
to count on the cholesterol-
related benefits we'd once
expected soy to deliver. How-
,,ir fnv'seffectFst __ soecifical-


people. Like most agreements
there are certain things that are
required to satisfy the agree-
ment on both sides.
I'm not here to tell you of the
sureties that are required to sa.
isfy the covenant. You can read
that for yourself in the Bible. I
am here to simply tell you that
God the father and Jesus the son
love you. The commandments
that are laid down are what are
required to bring you and those
around you a spectacular life of
peace and companionship. The
commandments are for our ben-
efit and the benefit of others.
I will tell you that there are
things (idols) that get in the way
of us listening and respecting
the Eternal Almighty; and they
usually consist of an "I" some-
where in the process. We make
ourselves into the idol that
replaces God. "I" is at the
beginning of all wrong and at
the end of all wrong. When we
are called up and our wrongs
listed they will all start with an
emphatic "You" that is the
proverbial "I".
I know some of us proclaim
that we do some of the things
we do for the love of someone
else, but in all seriousness if we
truly love someone then you do
what is most logical and best
for them and their future and
you know that fiost of us do
what we feel. That singular
noun, "I", is the beginning of all
sin (the wrongs). To follow
your feelings, instead of sound
judgment takes ,an "I". We are
truly only interested in the "I".
Most of us don't even think
through. why weedo what we do.
If you ask someone why they
think or act the way they do
they will usually give the most
ignorant answer; because "I"

just behave that way or they try
to blame someone else. That
actually means "I" haven't real-
ly considered why because "I"
am just interested in how "I"
feel and "I" could care less
about how it affects anyone
else. As if the "I" were in con-
trol and not "You".
My whole point is that God
wants what is logical and best
for you. He sees into the future,
like we are supposed to try to
do, and he knows what the out-
come will be. He has built this
into us also. It is called "cause
and effect". He wants us to be
good to other people. He wants
what every parent wants. To be
respected and appreciated for
the good things he does and the
comfort that he gives.'
I personally know people
who would say that they tried to
follow Christ but he never did
anything good for them. I now
that they never could get the "I"
out of His way so He could help
them. I know this because I
have painfully watched them.
They don't want to hear what
He has to say.
They want to do exactly what
they want to do without anyone
being upset with them and with-
out admitting they have proba-
bly emotionally damaged their
children or spouse or anyone
else who got in the way of their
self pity and selfishness.
Those selfish actions will
leave many people all alone in
this world. You may want to be
left alone. That is exactly why
on judgment day Christ will
leave you alone, forever. He
doesn't want that. He wants you
to keep Him company for eter-
nity.

Limestone On P.A.C.E.

. For Improvements


Hardee Commun


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of Thlie Herald-Advocate
The rural community of,
Limestone has been chosen for
the P.A.C.E. program.
In the last couple of years 10
homes have been demolished
and replaced or renovated in the
predominately black communi-
ty south of the railroad tracks
off CR 365, reported resident
Bud Ruth.
Julianne Price, state coordi-
nator for P.A.C.E, explained the
program to the Hardee County
Commission last week. Offici-
ally, it is PACE EH? It stands
for Protocol for Assessing
Community Excellence in
Environmental Health. It is a
part of the state Department of
Health's division of environ-
mental health.
The program helps communi-
ty residents assess their lack of
infrastructure and demograph-
ics and build partnerships that
will improve their community.
It could include grant applica-
tions for such things as side-
walks and parks, septic systems
and similar improvements.
"It teaches people how to live
in a house and maintain it?
asked Commissioner Minor
Bryant. Price said that was one
of the program's goals.
Already, well contamination
has been checked and a prob-
lem with noise level resolved.
One priority is to get an alter-
nate approach to the communi-
ty, as there is only one in and
out now. Another priority is the
need for some type of. emer-
gency medical service, law
enforcement patrol and fire pro-
tection, perhaps a substation.
Bryant replied, "I agree that
they should have fire protec-
tion, maybe a volunteer fire sta-
tion." Commissioner Terry
Atchley hoped that "total public
awareness for the Limestone
P.A.C.E. program would be a
first step."
Price said weekly visits

THE WALKING WOUNDED
This is a term that describes those soldiers who have been
wounded in battle but can still walk. It is hoped they cab reach a
field hospital before they keel over.
This also describes many Christians we know today. They
have had a salvation experience. They recognize Jesus:as Lord. But
they have been so wounded by the world, the flesh and the devil
that they appear stunned. They have no testimony.
Often they are bitter and the benefits of knowing Christ seem
to be lost on them.
It seems to me that this is the result of a Gospel that presents
Christ as the suffering Savior but not as our indwelling Life. An
experience of redemption is wonderful, but men and women need
to have such a hold on God that they can navigate the treacherous
waters of everyday living with confidence and joy.
These wounded folk seem unaware that the devil is determined
to defeat us. Like frightened children in a storm, they don't know
where to go.
You hear their plaintive cries on the Internet counseling Web
sites and in Letters to the Editor. Don't they know that the great
Answer to their problems lies within them?
Small wonder the wounds of life's battle heal so slow!

TUESDAY
Throw off your old evil
nature and your former way
of life, which is rotten
through and through, full of
lust and deception. Instead,
there must be a spiritual
renewal of your thoughts
and attitudes.
Ephesians 4:22-23 (NLT)


WEDNESDAY
If your enemy is hungry, give
him food! If he is thirsty, give
him something to drink! This
will make him feel ashamed
of himself, and God will
reward you.
Proverbs 25:21-22 (TLB)


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
And Hezkiah prayed, 0 Lord
God, You are enthroned
between the mighty cheru-
bim! You alone are God of all
the kingdoms of the earth.
You alone created the heav-
ens and the earth . The
message of the Lord, "But
have you not heard? It was I,
the Lord, who decided this
long ago. Long ago I
planned what I am now
causing to happen." '
/I Kings 19:15,25a (NCV)
FRIDAY
But steer clear of all these
stupid godless fictions. Take
time and trouble to keep
yourself spiritually fit. Bodily
fitness has a certain value,
but spiritual fitness is essen-
tial, both for this present life
and for the life to come.
I Timothy 4:7-8 (PME)
SATURDAY
I call to God; God will help
me. At dusk, dawn and noon
I sigh, deep sighs He
hears, He rescues . Pile
your troubles on God's
shoulders He'll carry your
load; He'll help you out.
Psalm 55:16,22a (ME)
SUNDAY
Again."Jesus said, "If two of
you on earth agree about
any request you have to
make, that request, will be
granted by My heavenly
Father. For where two or
three have met together in
My name, I am there among
them."
Matthew 18:20-21 (NEB)


MONDAY
Seek the Lord while He may
be found; call on Him while
He is near. Let the wicked
forsake his way, and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him
turn to the Lord, and He will
have mercy on him, and our
God, for He will freely par-
don.
Isaiah 55:6-7 (NIV)

A LA SECCION HISPANA
Con la venia de Dios Padre y con el pemiso de todos ustedes,
amables lectores, iniciamos hoy una muy fructifera aventura peri-
odistica que marcara espero todo un hito entire la poblacion
hispano-parlante del condado Hardee y condados circunvecinos.
Y, digo "iniciamos"; porque desde hoy mismo y en adelante,
dicha aventura sera sobrellevada en forma conjunta, reciproca y
retrocomunicativa con el lector; o sea que, se procurara que today
information y material periodistico sean de utilidad, educativos,
recreativos y/o culturales para la poblacion lectora.
'Consciente estoy plenamente, de que el camino a recorrer, no
sera tan sencillo y que se nos vislumbran grandes retos, desafios,
jornadas grandes de trabajo, problems y viscicitudes para lograr
cautivar y mantener la atencion de los lectores; mas, a pesar de
todo: Confio al cien por ciento de que mi raza hispana sabra
responder positivamente y llenaremos conjuntamente esos huecos,
esos sentidos de vaciedad informatica, recreativa y de opinion que
son tan palpables actualmente entire las sociedad hispana del con-
dado.
Cabe aqui, antes de continuar con nuestros propositos, hacer
un alto y meditar y agradecer al Cuerpo Editorial y Directivo de
este ya centenario periodico,por sus esfuerzos en apoyar a
que los hispano regionales sean informados y tomados en cuenta,
en su propio idioma.
Por lo tanto, a toda persona que lea estas humildes lines, le
insto de la manera mas sincera possible, a que se una a esta aven-
tura que hoy se inicia;les suplico que sientan como suya la respon-
sabilidad de auto-in-formarnos, de buscar constantemente la
superacion como individuo, como familia,vecindad, barrio, pueblo,
estado y nacion. Solo de esta manera, seremos mas hombres, mas
humans y mas dignos de alcanzar ia tan anhelada perfeccion y
el verdadero hermanamiento entire los hombres.
Vaya pues, una invitacion direct a participar activamente
con esta seccion hispana,enviando material propio,enviar cartas a
la seccion, informandonos sobe noticias y futuros events, retoali-
mentandb la infomacion leida, insertando publicidad, comprando
el periodic, recomendandolo, hacienda comentarios y sugerencias
positivas, y tantas y tantas maneras; esta seccion es toda suya! por
el moment, en esta occasion ponigo a su distinguida consideration,
estas lines y estas notas con las que por hoy, abordamos este viaje
periodistico, tan susceptible a ser mejorado y enriquecido; siempre,
con la anuencia y supervision del Todopoderoso.
Vayamos, pues al viaje!

Soccer Warriors
By Luis Castillo

Que tal amigos, de nuevo estoy con ustedes, esta semana
hablaremos principalmente de los juegos celebrados por los
infantiles, ya que es la unica categoria que ha jugado estas dos
tnrimeras jornadas del Tomeo de Invierno.
El pachuca, de Fort Meade apedreo, golpeo y abollo la coro-
na del actual campeon America al golearlo por cinco goles a cero;
ademas, lo domino, barrio y lo borro dela cancha, totalmente. Al
parecer, existen problems interns entire los directivos de los
aguiluchos y esto se refleja muy sensiblemente en el desempeno
en el terreno dejuego. Ojala y que prhnto se arreglen dichos prob-
lemas, para bien de los pupilos del Timo Lopez; Animo y
Adelante!
Los ninos del Deportive-El Capire, tambien se sirvieron con
la cuchara grande y,.golearon por cuatro pepinos a uno a los sub-
campeones del Rebano Sagrado de las Chivas, a quienes se les
noto muy alicaidos al sufrir tan desastrosa derrota. Vamos a
entretar mas duro tmis chiviricos! Esa es la clave para mejorar la
tecnica individual y de grupo.
En el ultimo partido, los tremendisimos Tigrillos iniciaron
elTorneo dandole cinco zarpazes a los desorientados chicuelos
del Puebla (ex-cruzazulistas), mismos que ocupan el fondo de la
tabla de clasificacion, pues sus dos partidos jugados, los ha perdi-
do y Ileva diez goles en contra y cero a favor.'
Vamos adelante poblanos, entrenen duro y concentrense en '
mejorar su condition fisica y dediquense en serio a aprender el fut-
bol. Animo!
Asi que, el Deportivo El Capire se ubica en primer lugar en la
tabla de clasificacion; en segundo, El Pachuca con cuatro puntos
y el tercer lugar lo ocupa el equipazo felino "Tigres", que tras des-
cansar en la primer fecha, su primer juego lo gano ampliamente por
cinco balazos a cero.
Esperamos que las demas categories inicien juegos ya pronto
y que tengamos mas emociones domingo a domingo en los llanos
done juegan nuestras futuras esrellas del futbol. Hasta la proxi-
ma semana, amigos y que Dios me los bendiga Hoy Manana y por
Siempre!
ARRANCO EL CAMPEONATO!
Con tres partidos arranco el Tomeo de Invierno 08-09 en las
categories de.edades; de hecho,solo inicio actividades la Rama
Infantil el domingo pasado, alla en las canchas del Armory; los
demas, fueron partidos amistosos.
Es la categoria Infantil, en donde se hallan mas equipos par-
ticipantes en: la Liga local y en donde se iniciaron las hostili-
dades.
En el primer partido, el equipo "El Capire", de Juan Diaz
dio cuenta del conjunto del equipazo de Mario "La Ardilla"
Hernandez, el Puebla F.C. por un amplio marcador de cinco
goles a cero.
En el segundo partido, en el mejor juego de la jornada, el
equipo Pachuca de Fort Meade empato- sin goles al subcampeon
Chivas de mi compare Rosendo Valadez.
El campeon America se enfrento en el tercer partido a sus
archirivales del Cruz Azul de Zolfo Springs; quienes, tras ir per-
diendo por dos goles a cero y marcarseles un penal en contra, les
.pararon el penalty y aun les alcanzo el tiempo para empatarles el
marcador a dos tantos.
En esta primer jornada, les toco desciansar a los muchachos
del Tigres, pero iniciaran las hostilidades el proximo domingo.
Un equipo de la categoria de U-12 de Sebring, vino a medir
fuerzas ante un combinado local, y salio goleado, pero coh los.
animos de venirse a comrnetir a esta liga.
Se dijo que posiblemente, la categoria U-16 inicie actividades
en dos semanas mas, esperando la registration de mas equipos.
Y, esto es todo por hoy amigos4 nos vemos la proxima sem-
ana para informarlqi todo cuanto acontezca en las canchas de
nuestro futbol IIanerb. Que Dios me los bendiga!

WEATHER SUMMARY
Last week, high temperatures were in the 60s and 70s with
some 80 degree days in Dade and Broward counties. Night time
lows ranged from the 20s to 40s. However, some central and south-
ern portions of the State reported lows in the 50s. Pasco County
reported their heaviest frost of the season. Rainfall was less than a
quarter of an inch for most areas. Marion, Hernando, Volusia, and
Jackson counties received just over 0.25 inches. In the Panhandle,
Franklin County recorded 0.48 inches.
FIELD CROPS
Most cotton harvesting was complete. Santa Rosa County
reported approximately 10 percent of their cotton had not been
picked yet. Wheat was being planted in Calhoun County. Rains
over Thanksgiving weekend improved soil moisture in the
Panhandle with most areas adequate. The rest of the State had short
to adequate soil moisture levels.

VEGETABLES
Some broccoli and cabbage crops were damaged by frost in
Columbia County and worms in Duval County. Cabbage was about
70 percent planted in Flagler County. Manatee County continued
harvesting tomatoes. Cold weather has put some Charlotte County
vegetables behind schedule. Other vegetables marketed last week
were snap beans, sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant, ppppers, radish-
es, and squash. Light volumes of endive, escarole, okra, and straw-
berries also moved through the market. Avocados were still being
marketed, but shipments declined seasonally.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle area, pasture condition was very poor to good
with most in poor condition. Recent rains helped winter (small
grain) pasture, but freezing temperatures damaged most pasture.
The decrease in available forage due to frosts forced cattlemen to
feed hay. Cattle condition ranged from poor to excellent. In the
northern area, the condition of pasture was poor to fair with cold
and drought hurting forage. Light rain helped small grain forage.
establishment. Freezing and near freezing temperatures continued
to reduce any remaining permanent pasture forage. Cattlemen were
feeding supplemental hay and minerals. In the central area, pasture
condition was very poor to excellent. Light rain helped the grass,
but grass growth was set back by the heaviest frost of the season.
Cattle condition was poor to good. In the southwest area, pasture
condition was very poor to excellent with most in poor condition.
Frost, continued cool temperatures, and short soil moisture have

suppressed pasture grass growth. However a heavy rain in Hendry
County caused some pasture flooding. Statewide, cattle condition
ranged from very poor to excellent with most in fair to good con-
dition.
CITRUS
Another round of cool weather dropped lows to the upper 30s
through out the citrus producing area. Although not the coldest
temperatures of the season, averages were several degrees below
normal for the week. Rainfall was limited to a quarter of an inch or
less in all citrus producing areas. Most caretakers continue to irri-
gate in order to maintain adequate surface moisture levels.
Processing picked up rapidly this past week. All of the plants have
opened and were receiving fruit; most were running at or near full
capacity. Growers reported high maturity levels on early and mi
season oranges being taken to the plants. Fresh fruit demand has
been down slightly, but was picking up with the Christmas season.
Grapefruit reports indicate excellent quality this season. Fresh fruit
harvested included Hamlin and Navel oranges, white and colored
grapefruit, Sunburst tangerines, and a small amount of tangelos.
Other than harvesting, grove activity included cleaning up groves
in preparation for harvesting, some fertilizing, and a small amount
of hedging.

Move over Santa Claus, there's a new Claus in town!
Bubba Claus, also known as Jared Fowler, is spreading
the Christmas spirit by handing out candy canes to local
businesses while running errands with family members.
Jared, 3, has been giving out candy canes "since he was
little" and does it "because it's Christmas." He is the son
of Marie Pilkington and Buck Fowler of Bowling Green.

December 11, 2008, The Herald-Advocate 9B


By today (Thursday), all the winter sports have started.
The last to get under way was girls weightlifting, which started
with a home meet Tuesday. They are at Lake Placid today.
The team having the most success right now is girls soccer,
which won a pair of home matches last week, downing both Avon
Park and Fort Meade. First-year coach David Hatch is getting
good results with Marce Ramirez, Brenda Zamora, Daisy Escoto,
Chelsey Goolsby and Maria Anselmio all taking the ball to the goal
and Maria Jaimes defending the Hardee goal.

The Hardee Junior High boys nipped DeSoto 29-27 in their
opener last week. The girls lost by four but are also coming along
nicely. The junior high girls have benefited from a $900 donation
from Clear Springs Co. (and Commissioner Terry Atchley) for new
shoes, while the coach's company contributed even more in new
uniforms for the girls. The junior highs don't have the fundraisers
high school sports have and these contributions are much appreci-
ated.

Boys and girls basketball are battling. In its first home game,
the Hardee varsity boys worked hard with "a tremendous effort" in
the 43-41 loss to Avon Park. The girls fashioned a come-from-
behind win over Lake Placid.
Wins mix with losses early on as teams gel, but expect contin-
ued improvement with both, especially after the holiday break Dec.
18-Jan 5, when games are more often and experience mounts.

Speaking of basketball, it's time for the youth league signups.
Students in grades four through seven can get registrations from
their P.E. coaches and need to return them with the $15 registration
by Friday. Checks should be made out to Hardee County Midget
League Basketball.
Tryouts are mandatory for every player. They will be held at the
old junior high gym off South Florida Avenue on Saturday, Dec.
20, beginning at 9 a.m. For more information, or any questions, call
Carl Coleman at 781-9641.
Anyone interested in coaching a team, or helping in any way
should also call him as soon as possible.

Also coming up this Saturday is the 36th annual Elks "Hoop
Shoot." The local contest in this national free throw contest will be
held at the High School gym on Saturday at 8 a.m. Youngsters ages
eight through 13 will compete in their age brackets to be the best
of 25 shots at the hoop.
The boy and girl in each age group, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, will
advance to the district level in January in Lake Placid and on
through four levels to qualify for the national finals at Springfield,
Mass.
For more information or questions, call John Woodburn at 781-
3160.

Our final note is one of congratulations to the two Pop Warner
cheerleader teams which went to competition in Orlando the last
weekend in November. Pee Wee placed fifth overall and midgets
placed fourth in their groups. Lorri Larmmie did. a good job coordi-
nating all this for the cheerleaders this year.
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.




Wauchula Facilities


Gain More Rules


By KASEY HhLlMi
Of The Herald-Advocate
Anybody .wishing to use
Wauchula property and/or facil-
ities may expect some strings
attached.
At its meeting Monday, the
Wauchula City Commission
discussed what some of the
strings would be but postponed
the decision in order to clarify
one of them.
The issue at point is liability
insurance and how much people
would need to have to use a par-
ticular facility based on the
event. The city has limited in-
.surance but major events might
,require more.
Facilities include Peace River
Park, Heritage Park, Crews
River. Park, Oak Street Park,
Wauchula City Auditorium or
any of the smaller parks. These
might be used for birthday par-
ties, bridal and baby showers,
family reunions, religious ser-
vices and many others.
Restrictions could include
adult supervision when groups
of children are present, clean-up
before leaving, deposits, and
replacement of damaged items
or equipment.
The commission felt it was
necessary to redraft its policy in
order to be more specific about
liability issues.

PUBLIC NOTICE

You are hereby notified that on Thursday, December 4,
P008, upon public hearing, the Board of County
Commissioners of Hardee County, Florida, adopted a
resolution vacating and closing all located in the
Town of Ona Subdivision, leg cribed as: The north
.155 feet of the 20 feet w'alleyway running north &
south and all of the 10 feet wide alleyway running east &
west, both being located in Block 9, 33 34S 24E. The
above described alleyways being recorded in the origi-
nal Plat of the Town of Ona, Florida as shown in Plat Bar
A-26 of the Public Records of Hardee County, Florida.
Dale A. Johnson, Chairman
Board of County Commissioners 12:11c


Greetings from Fort Green!
Fort Green only got a sprin-
kle of rain before the latest cold
front. Hopefully, you received
more rain than we did. It is dry
in our part of Hardee County.
I attended the Heartland
Chorale program last Friday
night and thought it a super pro-
gram. I said the best yet, but
Sherman thought last year was
better! So, in one household
you have two opinions. All I
know is, it is always a good pro-
gram and my hat is off to the
performers and producers.
Another treat in attending this
super production is you see so
many people you do not nor-
mally see. I was delighted to see
Ouida Roberts. She is quite
amazing and told me she was
94 and the last one of her sib-
lings. Ross Hendry had brought
her and stood there patiently
waiting while people greeted
Ouida.
I met her when I first moved
to Hardee County and we were
both in the Homemakers Club.
I told her I always remembered
her daughter had made a dress
for 4-H competition, and the
judges told her daughter the
seams on her dress should all
be 5/8-inch instead *of some
seams a different size. But
Ouida said, do you want
straight seams or do you want
the dress to fit?! Quite amazing
what you remember people say-
ing.
Of course the Agri-Civic
Center was filled to capacity
but I also saw Katherine
Melendy, whom I had not seen
in some time. She looked as
pretty as ever as did Opal
Knight. Opal has the prettiest
hair. Very few people have
such a beautiful head of hair
and such a lovely color.
Nancy McQuaig was at
church last Sunday. She had
been visiting her son, David,
and family in Colorado. He is
stationed at Fort Carson. They
took her sightseeing to as many
of the tourist attractions as pos-
sible. Among the sights she saw
was Pike's Peak. Sherman and I
went there about eight years
ago. We could understand the
song verse "purple,.mountain
majesty above thy fruited plain"
after seeing the mountains in
that area. David and his family
will be home for Christmas, but
he believes he will have to go to
Iraq around the first of the year.
Of course, Nancy is praying this
does not happen and if all of
you join her, maybe it will not
happen.
Polly Banda passed away last

Friday. She was a dear sweet
lady, short of stature but not of
spirit. To know her was to love
her. Son John from Korea and
daughter Linda from Virginia
had arrived to be with her
before she left her earthly
home. The Fort Green Baptist
hosted the family for a covered-
dish dinner after the funeral on
Monday. Our heartfelt sympa-
thy goes to all the family and
especially her husband, Tino.
He will be lost without his wife
as he is also in the winter stage
of life.

home on a Sunday and the trip

Fort Green residents ringing
were Brian Yake, Dalton
Richey, Kasie Powell, Kaylee
Hogenauer and Hunter Reid.
There were possibly others, but
these were working when I
shopped!
Avis Sasser Went to the
Christmas parade with us last
Saturday night. We all yelled at
Kaylee Hogenauer, Hunter
Reid, Dalton Richey and others
on the Castaways' float. It was a
good parade and, of course, we
picked the best float and that
was the Castaways Fishing
Club. You guessed it, their lead-
ers are Fort Green residents,
Rex and Trisha Richey. The
club is open to anyone in the
county but there are a lot of Fort
Green youngsters in the club.
There is a lot of sickness with
this changing weather. Please
remember to pray for one
another and call me with your
news.

Nutrition

Notes
Q: Are granam cracKer
pie-crusts lower in fat than
those made with traditional
dough?
A: Both graham cracker and
traditional piecrusts vary
tremendously in the amount of
fat used in making them. Some
of the pre-made frozen crusts
are relatively low in fat because
fat use is minimized in produc-
tion and they are rolled
extremely thin. But, as the pie
dough is made richer with more
fat or the crust gets thicker, fat
and calories increase markedly.
A traditional recipe may have
from 120 to 200 calories and 8
to 12 grams of fat per slice of
pie in the crust alone. Although
graham or wafer cookie crumb
crusts can be made with a
healthier soft margarine
(instead of the solid shortening
used in most traditional
doughs), the fat content will
vary depending on how much is
used. In addition, calorie con-
tent may be slightly higher than
dough crusts because of the use
of sweet crumbs. Whether you
choose a pre-made crust or
make your own, better-for-you
versions using at least part
whole wheat and healthier fats
are available and worth looking
for.

'HIGHWAYMEN' ARTIST AT OPEN HOUSE
Christmas seems to be upon us and before long we will be try-
ing to remember to date our checks as 2009.
Like other businesses in Hardee County, Cracker Trail
Museum has begun to transform its walls, shelves and floor space
into a myriad of Christmas decorations. As you walk through the
doors, the pungent smells of the season will linger as you are trans-
ported back in time with the many displays that represent Hardee
County through the ages.
Unlike today, our ancestors decorated their homes with green
branches and homemade decorations. Pinecones, nuts, berries and
popcorn chains were hung on the trees. Cookie dough ornaments
and gingerbread men also adorned its branches.,
The months that led up to Christmas Day were filled with
making gifts for family members. There would be corn-husk dolls,
carved wooden toys, pillows, embroidered handkerchiefs, knitted
hats and socks that would be placed in homemade boxes under the
tree. Stockings were hung on the fireplace and contained cookies,
fruit and nuts.
Christmas Eve was a special family night with the singing of
carols and story-telling around the fireplace. The entire family
attended church on Christmas Day and afterward enjoyed a meal of
perhaps roast turkey, fresh yams and vegetables that had been put
up from the spring garden.
During the Victorian era in the early 1900s, Christmas was cel-
ebrated much in the same way as in pioneer days with a few addi-
tions. Personal gifts were still hand-crafted and included knitted
and embroidered items and homemade fudge. The hobby horse had
entered the scene and was a popular gift for both boys and girls.
The family gathered in the "parlour" on Christmas Day. Calling on
the neighbors and caroling was always part of the Christmas fes-
tivities during this era. It was always customary to take a home-
made gift, usually a food item, to the hosts.
As the years progressed, it became typical for family and
friends to entertain with an "open house." This practice continues
today and has been expanded to local businesses. During the holi-
day season, many of your hometown establishments'will welcome
visitors through its doors with punch, coffee'and cookies.
Cracker Trail Museum is among that group of Hardee County
entities that would like to invite you to its annual Christmas Open
House. We hope you will set aside the date of Monday, Dec. 22, to
visit the museum and welcome our guest, Al Black, one of mem-
bers of The Highwaymen. On display will be many of Black's
paintings, and this might be where you can find that special last-
minute Christmas gift. The festivities will begin at 4 p.m. and con-
tinue on through 7.
Christmastime, regardless of the era, has always been a time
for friends and family to gather. Please consider sharing Dec. 22
with us and be our guest for an evening with famed artist, Al Black.

Orange Blossom RV News
By Marilyn Catt


Our first Thanksgiving, hobo
dinner and pancake breakfast
were such a success, what can-
we expect next? Am sure there
will be so many at the next din-
ner the crowd will overflow
into our new addition, which
will be great! We certainly have
many good cooks here at
Orange Blossom.
EARLYBIRDS
You couldn't fail to notice the
pretty Christmas decorations
and lights when coming from
the hall last Friday evening.
Charlotte and Billy Wilson dec-
orated the front and back of
their home and were the first
Christmas lights I had seen.
Now, several others have their
homes all lighted up for the hol-
idays. Charlotte also put up
lights around the pool.
A GREAT WALK
We have all seen the benefits
received from walking, some
just short of being miraculous.
Here at Orange Blossom we
have what is called the outer
rim; one trip around equals one-
half mile. People take advan-
tage of this marvelous roadway,
with the absence of fast traffic,
stray dogs or foreign objects
that one may trip on.
Our physicians are constantly
advising us to walk for our
health, now we have an ideal
place to do that in the safety of
our park. So let's all get out and
have that stroll around our park.
SICK LIST
Many here at Orange
Blossom have not been feeling
well and some are seriously ill
and need to be on our prayer
list. Sorry to say that at this time
I do not have everyone's name,
but we have heard of some of
you: Mary Catozzi, Betty
Branel, Al Hayes, Rickard and
Jo Carnelli, Elzie Atchison and
Connie Atkinson are a few.
Thee are also some folks due to
illness are hot able to come
down for the winter months. We
miss all of you and pray you
will be feeling better soon and
that we will see you next sea-
son.
Elzie Atchison and his wife,
Mertha, are from Montague,
Mich. Here at Orange Blossom
they are on Lot 42. This won-
derful couple have been with us
since 1989, and Junior, as he is
better known, had cancer and is


going for treatments down here
and we will wish him the best.
Mertha is always out helping
someone, even though she at
times has problems with her hip
hurting hei'
NEIGHBORS
Stopped into visit with Eileen
Bell of Lot 17A. Eileen comes
from New Brunswick, Canada,
,and has been with us since
1988. Eileen has two sons and a
daughter. Susan will be coming
down to visit her mother the
18th and helping her celebrate
her birthday on the 22nd of
December. Eileen also has four
grandchildren and seven great-
grandchildrei.
Eileen's hobbies are writing
letters and sending cards to
shut-ins, the mentally retarded,
bereaved and her friends. I
know she likes to sew and do
plastic crafts, as she made us a
pretty cover for our toaster. She
also crochets and knits. Eileen
is also very good with her com-
puter and makes many of her
greeting cards on the computer,
way to to go Eileen!
Had to stop in to see Uncle
Sham the other day. He was
busy putting way his groceries
as he had just returned from
shopping. Some of you may not
know Uncle Sham ,by this
name, but if you come to coffee
hour he is always there telling
us stories and passing out
coupons. He is the nice gentle-
men who always cleans the
tabletops after coffee and emp-
ties the wastebaskets. Freddie
likes doing those chores and he
is very faithful doing them to.
Freddie Stahle, Lot 1333, has
been here at the park since the
beginning. His wife, Jo, passed
away several years ago.
GAME SCORES
The Tuesday cribbage win-
ners are first, George Jarvis,
745; second, Fred Dole, 737;
and third, Jack Brief, 694.
Sorry to say we do not have
the euchre scores from Wednes-
day night. If you want them in
the paper, please contact
Connie Fisher in the future.
ALUMINUM CANS
If you have any cans to be
disposed of, please do not throw
in the trash. Rommy Heitman
will beicollecting them. There
are canisters near the shuffle-
board court to put them in.

It came down to the wire, but
Avon Park prevailed.
The Hardee Wildcats hosted
the Avon Park Red Devils on
Friday night, and finished on
the short end of a 43-41 score.
This week, Hardee has three
games. On Tuesday, it was
another gal-guy evening when
Palmetto visited and played
Hardee varsity girls and then
varsity boys as the Tigers have
no JVs this year.
Today (Thursday), the 'Cats
greet Sarasota Booker for the
regular JV-varsity boys night at
6 and 7:30. Tomorrow, Mul-
berry is the visitor.
Next week, Hardee goes to
Sebring on Tuesday before par-
ticipating in a three-day tourna-
ment in Port Charlotte Dec. 18-
20.
Against Avon Park last week,


"Hardee had plenty of opportu-
nities, but our assist-to-turnover
ration (10 to 22) ended up being
the difference in the game,"
said head coach Vance Dickey.
"We worked very hard to cre-
ate turnovers, as evidenced in
our 22 steals, but turned around
and had 22 turnovers. These
mistakes are correctable, which
is very encouraging," he added.
He lauded the team because
"our effort level was tremen-
dous." He noted particularly the
good work of a pair of juniors,
Antjuan Jones with 13 deflec-
tions and Jarrell Ellis with 20
rebounds.
Other varsity players are
seniors Postene Louisjeune,
Lucas Juarez and Nolan Neu-
hauser; sophs Tre' Anderson,
Carl Brown, Justin Bromley
and D'Vonte Hooks; and fresh-
men Keshun Rivers, Jajuan
Hooks and Andrew Hooks.


In its only game last week,
the first game of the season, the
Hardee JV lost by 20. "We were
right in it, until the fourth quar-
ter. We were down by one at
half time, and I was pretty
pleased overall," commented
head coach Rod Smith.
"We were down by five at the
end of the third quarter; the
game had gone back and forth
for the first three quarters. But,
we need more conditioning and
to reduce our turnovers," con-
tinued Smith.
His team includes Ivan
Fermin, a junior new to the
sport; sophs Sammy Cisneros,
Quinton Carlton, Alex Mal-
donado, Ricardo Fermin, Ter-
rance Medlock and Reggie
Snell; and freshmen Deonte
Evans, Murrell Winter, Dylon
Clements, Jesse Belcher,
Jeremy Rowe and Dalton
Hewitt.

The Hardee Junior High
Wildcats forged a come-from-
.behind second victory over
DeSoto Middle School last
week.
It was one-of-two for the
Hardee boys, while the girls lost
by four to DeSoto and were
overwhelmed by Avon Park'
standout, who scored 27 of her
team's 35 points.
There was only one game this
week, at home on Monday
against Sebring. The girls play
about 5:30 and the boys about
6:30. There is another home
game next Monday, when Hill-
Gustat Middle School teams
visit for the final break before
the Christmas holidays.
Against DeSoto, Hardee
trailed 8-6 at the end of quarter
one and was down only 16-15
-by-.halftime. Hardee forged
ahead with eight third-period
points while holding DeSoto to
Just two. The junior 'Cats held
on for the 29-27 win.
Kain Casso sank a trio of
three-point shots for Hardee.
Garrett Albritton also had nine
points, on four deuces and a
free-throw. Kramer Royal
added nine and Keyon Brown
had five.

It was a come-froin-behind
win for the Hardee girls against
Lake Placid to start last week
off on a solid note.
Unfortunately, although they
were improved, they were not
able to beat either Sebring or
.Avon Park.
This week began with Tues-
day's visit from Palmetto in a
guy-gal doubleheader, with the
girls playing at 6 p.m. and the
.'boys at 7:30. Tomorrow (Fri-
day), Hardee goes to Booker for
the usual JV-Varsity pair of
games.
Next week's games will close
out the pre-holiday season.
There is a varsity-only visit
from "Walker Memorial Aca-
demy at 6 p.m.Tuesday and a
double-header at DeSoto on
Thursday at 6 and 7:30.
Both Hardee.and Lake Placid
poured it on in the fourth quar-
ter in the game between the
Lady 'Cats and Lady Green
'Dragons. It was only a 20-15
deficit for Hardee going into the
final period, but Hardee out-
scored Lake Placid 21 to 12 in
ithe last eight minutes.
For Hardee, senior captain.
SaBrina "Noonie" Holmes had a
high game of 17 points, with


Kris Johnson, Daniel Boehm,
Justin Forrester, Zachary Neu-
hofer, Jacob Neuhofer, Luke
Palmer, C.K. Douglas and Luke
Winter.
At Avon Park last Thursday,
it was a battle between two tal-
ented players, No. 23, M.J.
Rhoden scored 20 points for
Avon Park, while Brown guard-
ed him and also scored 20
points.
The difference was in addi-
tional scoring from Avon Park,
with Jarviel Hart with 14 points,
Alfred Brown eight and four
other players scoring.
For Hardee, Albritton had
eight, Johnson and Casso four
apiece and Forrester one at the
charity stripe.
"It was nice to start with a
win at DeSoto. After getting
behind at'Avon Park, we put
Keyon (Brown) on their big
player, used a box-and-one and
were able to hang with them,
but not catch up," said coach
Carl Coleman.
Meanwhile,) the Hardee
junior high Lady 'Cats lost 22-
18 at DeSoto in one of its clos-
est games there. Hardee led 8-2
after the first quarter, but cooled
off and couldn't hit a hoop in
the second stanza. DeSoto led
12-8 at halftime.
Both teams scored better in


the second half, each getting 10
points. Hardee just did not
make up the four-point halftime
deficit. Robyn Tanksley led
Hardee with eight points, while
teammates Shreya Patel, Chan-
tell "Bailey" Carlton, Kayla
Nichols, Allison Allen-Hunter
and Allysa Casso each chipped
in with two points.
Other girls on the team are
Alexan Maddox, Carleigh
Coleman, Ashley Armstrong,
Ana Saldivar, Nyshira Jackson,
Carlista Brown and Desiree.
Smith.
The game at Avon Park was a
study in frustration as Hardee
could not control Johntavia
Perry, who either scored or
drew fouls all evening. She fin-
ished with 27 points on nine
deuces and 9-of-18 at the free
throw line. Only two other
Avon Park players scored, with
six and two pbirntsrespectively :
The.Hardee scoring"was bal-'
anced. Jackson had a half
dozen, Patel five, Tanksley
three, Carlton, NicholIs, Allen-
Hunter and Smith two apiece
and Casso one point.
"We're doing much better
than this time last year. We only'
lost to DeSoto by four points,
but we couldn't stop that Avon
Park girl," commented coach
Andy Maddox.

against DeSoto. Next week it's
a trip to DeSoto on Monday,
and visits from Sebring Tues-
day and Booker Thursday.
The first win last week was a
district game against Avon
Park. The Lady 'Cats beat the
Lady Red Devils 4-1 last Tues-
day.
"It was a turning point in the
season," said head coach David
Hatch.
Both teams did not manage to
score until the second half of
the game with Avon Park taking
the first goal. Then the Lady,
'Cats scored tying the game 1-
1.


"After that we took control
and goals just kept coming in
and our defense did a wonderful
job," said Hatch.
Brenda Zamora scored two
goals, making that her first
goals of the season, followed by.
one each by Daisy Escoto and
Marce Ramirez.
According to Hatch the
biggest difference in this game
was not giving up after Avon
Park scored, and Zamora "step-
ping up" and finishing a goal.
After their Tuesday win, the
Lady 'Cats faced off against the
Fort Meade Miners the next day
beating them 8-0.
"I told the girls to come out
on fire from the get-go and they.
did. The play they had Tuesday
night carried over to Wednes-
day and it was a game we had to
win," said Hatch.
Scoring goals were Lady
'Cats Zamora, Escoto, Chelsea
Goolsby, Maria Anselmo and


Ramirez.
Hatch also commended goal-
ie Maria Jaimes, on successful-
ly defending the goal and pro-
hibiting Fort Meade from scor-
ing.
The referees called the game
at half-time because of the
score.
"It was all-around team
effort," said Hatch but added,
"Even though it was such a big
win, we still have plenty to
work on."
According to Hatch, some
needed improvements are pass-
ing and marking defensively
(making sure players stay with
the person they are supposed to
be guarding).
So far this season the Lady
'Cats have played five district
games with a record of 2-2-1.
Overall the girl's soccer team is
3-2-1.

I SEEDS

FROM


SOWER

,, ..

A salesman said, "Insurance
is a great thing. I carry a
$75,000 policy on my life,
payable to my wife."
"Then," said the old-timer,
"what excuse do you have for
living?"
So that she'd have an
excuse for living, Helen
Keller said, "I'll not spend my
life, I'll invest my life."
Invest your life in teaching
young people to choose edu-
cation over ignorance and
good over evil, in healing the
sick and helping others turn
from sin to the Savior, and
you'll enrich time and eterni-
ty.
Like the man said, "What
excuse do you have for liv-
ing?"


Life without a mailbox would be pretty lonely. Everybody likes to
hear from someone. Why is communication so important to our
well-being? Because connecting with others can bring us joy!
To stay connected and up-to-date with what is going on in the
lives of our friends and family, we just have to pick up the phone,
or write a letter, or send an e-mail. The people in our lives are a
source of support and friendship.
What about God? We need divine guidance as much as we
need human support. We need to keep in touch with God, too!
We can communicate with God by prayer.
Are you waiting to hear from God? Visit your house of
worship this week. "The Lord is near to all who call on him..."
(Psalm 145:18).

You Can Be A


Bell Ringer!

Local Salvation Army Kettle Drive


The Wauchula Service Unit
of the Salvation Army is in the
midst of its annual Christmas
Kettle Drive.
Bells began ringing on Nov.
28 and will ring through Wed-
nesday,. Dec. 24. More volun-
teers are needed to make this
happen.
This is a wonderful opportu-
nity for local citizens to become
involved in a very worthwhile
community service project.
All money collected in kettles
in Hardee County stays in
Hardee County, and it is distrib-
uted through the local Hardee
Help Center.
Cash and checks are accept-
ed.
Hardee County has a history
of being a giving community.
The Wauchula Service Unit
needs your help in this 2008


Christmas Kettle Drive.
If you are interested in bell
ringing, contact Mary Alder-
man, coordinator, at 773-2164
anytime from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.
This is a way you can give
back to your community by
helping others. So, the search
is on for volunteers from local
churches, civic clubs, school
service organizations, recre-
ational vehicle parks and any
other organizations or individu-
als who would be willing
to volunteer a little of their
time.
Please remember that if you
can't help by ringing, you can
help by giving. Look for ket-
tles at Wal-Mart, Winn-Dixie.
and Wauchula State Bank in
Wauchula on Monday through
Saturday from 9 to 5.


Never tell evil of a man, if you do not know it for certainty, and
if you know it for a certainty, then ask yourself, "Why should I
tell it?"

CHURCH
The Rev. Robert Winne
opened the service, on Nov. 30
with a poem on Thanksgiving
and prayer. We all sang "Praise
the Lord," "Blessed Be Thy
Name" and "Come and Dine,"
all accompanied by Carol Jones
on piano and Wilma Behymer
on the organ.
The passing this week of
Tommy Prine, who was a resi-
dent, was noted with remem-
brances of his many services to
the Lord.
Nancy Morrison sang a song
she had written, entitled "Thank
you, Lord." The choir's special
was "Joy in Serving Jesus."
Ushers Lowell Gordon and Bob
Wilday received the offering.
Each week the pastor is
answering questions from the
congregation on the Bible.
This week he answered the
question, "Why is Jesus' lin-
eage traced through David?"
The horned toad is actually a
lizard.

Manor Memories
By Gilly Knight
Marketing and Admissions Director


On behalf of everyone at Hardee Manor Health Care Center, I
would like to wish everyone happy holidays and a new year full of
health and happiness.
We have been very busy at the manor getting everything ready
for the holidays. Just like many of you, we have been preparing and
decorating Hardee Manor for our residents because it is where they
call home. The lights are up and shining bright, the trees are deco-
rated just right, and homemade cookies are baking for all to have a
bite. Parties are planned and food is prepared with a loving hand.
I would like to invite you to give a blessing to our residents by
coming by to visit and share a Christmas story or a song. I would
also like to note that Linda and Jim See of the Java Caf6 placed our
Angel Tree in their lobby. If you feel called to do a little extra for
someone during this holiday season please stop by and pick an
angel off the tree for a special someone.
Happy holidays and may God bless you and your families
from all of us here at Hardee Manor.

The Housers have been com-
ing to Pioneer Creek for the
past 14 years. They are very
happy with living at Pioneer
Creek, and have many friends
who appreciate their contribu-
tions to making our park the
place it is today: Rudy being
chairman of bridge and pin-
ochle; Norma led water exer-
cise for four years, led a weight
management class and sang
with Songbirds for many years
as well as in chapel choir.
They both have a common
interest in shuffleboard and
cards. We all love having them
as our friends and neighbors.
