County Approves $30 Million Bond Issue


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Economic development
bonds of up to $30 million may
bring a senior living facility to
Wauchula.
Plans, for which construction
could start in late spring, in-
clude an independent living
facility on 73.36 acres at 1850
West Main St., Wauchula.


There would be 120 units, the
majority for senior citizens who
are still able to drive and partic-
ipate in community functions.
As their health deteriorates,
they can move to another por-
tion of the facility designated
for assisted living.
After a public hearing at last
week's meeting of the Hardee
County Commission, the plan


to issue the tax-free bonds was
approved by the commission. It
was emphasized that there
would be no liability to Hardee
County taxpayers, the county or
the Industrial Development
Authority, which had autho-
rized the action at its meeting
on Wednesday.
Hank Morgan of Gray-
Robinson, a Lakeland-based


legal firm specializing in bond-
ing, explained it to the commis-
sion. The tax code has a process
required for tax-exempt bonds,
which includes the public hear-
ing.
Gray-Robinson will arrange a
trustee bank or firm, which will,
in turn, market the bonds to
select investors, whose risk
depends on the corporation's


ability to construct and rent the
project. The bonds are secured
by the Mills Corp. which will
borrow the funds from IDA as
each stage of construction is
completed. Gray Robinson is
also responsible for arranging
accounting of the funds. IDA
will not be asked to do account-
ing of them.
Involving the IDA is a key to

Rollers Reunite
By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
Move over Beatles, the Wild Cats are in town!
TheWild Cats, spelled with two words to cut down on confusing
the band with the mascot, is a former 1960s high-school band from
Hardee County that now has reunited. Known then as The
Challengers, the band has come together for one more show.
The band's one and only reunion show will be this Friday in
Heritage Park in downtown Wauchula for the Super Sixties class
reunion block party.
However, not only has their name changed, they've added a
whole new member to their lineup. The addition to the band comes
in the form of keyboard player Bruce Durrance, who graduated
'from Hardee High School in 1970.
Original band members include Dan Reid, lead guitar and
vocals; Keith Hope, rhythm guitar and vocals; Jim See, rhythm

From bobby socks to bellbot-
toms, the 1960s was a decade of
new possibilities.
Within that short span of time
Lance Armstrong took "one
small step for man"; Martin
Luther King Jr. spoke of his
dream; John F. Kennedy Jr. was
elected president then killed for
it; and screaming girls every-
where fell in love with The
Beatles.
Graduates from Hardee


Senior High School from those
years of 1960 through 1969 are
all set to come together for the
largest high-school reunion
Hardee County has ever seen
this Saturday.
Some alumni are coming
from as far as Alaska, Califor-
nia and New York to partake in
the three-day reunion festivi-
ties.
Although the class reunion is
actually on Saturday afternoon,
beginning at 2 p.m., there are
many more events planned.


First up is on Friday, begin-
ning at 5:30 p.m., when individ-
ual classes are meeting up with'
each other to break bread and
enjoy reminiscing with one
another. They will meet in vari-
ous'locations, like local restau-
rants and classmates' homes,
throughout the county.
After catching up on over 40
.years of personal events, the
individual classes will merge
together for a grand block party

County

Observes

MLK Day

By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
The third Monday in January
of each year is a time for
remembering a "dream."
The phrase "I have a dream .
." is iconic to Americans, rep-
resenting ideas of equality and
freedom. Next Monday marks
the 41st year since Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr. was assassinat-
ed.
His message lives on, and
since Jan. 20, 1986, the United
States has officially observed
the third Monday in January as
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Residents of Hardee County
will celebrate all weekend long,
beginning with an annual
parade in honor of King this
Saturday at 12:30 p.m.
The parade in downtown
Wauchula will begin behind the
old junior high and march east-
ward on Main Street, then turn
south onto Seventh Avenue,
and finish westward on Orange
Street to Florida Avenue. The
promenade will consist of
floats, supporters riding in cars,
and groups walking in the
streets.
After the parade there will be
a basketball tournament, open
to everyone, at 2 p.m. at the end
of Camberlain Boulevard.
A candlelight march will take
place on Sunday, beginning at
5:30 p.m., starting at the Church
of Christ on Will Duke Road
and ending at New Mt. Zion
African Methodist Episcopal on
Martin Luther KingjJr. Avenue.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Jerold Knight had an idea instead of a single class reunion,
why not one for 10 years of Hardee High School graduating class-
es? There will be hundreds of graduates of the Super Sixties catch-
ing up on old times in Hardee this weekend.
There are many events planned for the classes of 1960 to 1969.
A huge block party will be held Friday night in downtown
Wauchula. On Saturday there are a golf tournament, hot air balloon
race, old high school tours, visiting, a barbecue dinner, and various
church services on Sunday morning with some lunches and more
visiting scheduled.
Main venues for the events are downtown Wauchula, Heritage
Park, the new junior high school, the old high school, Torrey Oaks
Golf Course and area churches. An old local band named the
Challengers has been renamed the Wildcats and will make a DVD
Friday night in downtown Wauchula. Several local restaurants are
preparing for hundreds of customers.
" Old cars from the 1960s will be on display on Friday in the
do% ntow n area.
S.The reunion committee that has worked so hard in recent
months include Sheila Carlton Smith, 1960; Sue Bryan Jackson,
1961; Ingie Burke Givens, 1962; Sue Green Birge, 1963; Mitzi
Roberts Chronic, 1964; Sue Maxwell Baker, 1965; Jerold Knight,
1966; Linda Sasser, 1967; Thelma Albritton Hendrix, 1968; and'
Gloria Clavel Davis, 1969; Jimmy Best, food; Suzanne Messick
Dupree, desserts; Patricia Conerly Rouse, registration; Frank
Gibbs, set-up; Sandra Rickels Scott, slide show; Alonzo
Whitehead, golf; and Rocky Kitchens, HHS tour.

Don Herndon, 72, a retired teacher and head football coach for
the Wildcats in the 1960s, died of heart failure on Jan. 10. Herndon
was a star football back for Hardee High and earned a scholarship
to University of Tampa where he made the Little All-American
team as a running back/kick returned. He played at the pro level
with the New York Titans for a year or two before a career-ending
injury.
In 1965 he led the Wildcats to the state championship game in
Gainesville. In 1971 he head coached the Haines City Hornets to
the state title game and his 1973 Hornet team won the state title,
Polk County's first FHSAA football championship.

Crime does not pay. About eight pirates from Somalia hijacked
an oil tanker, finally received $3 million for a ransom, and their
boat swamped on a getaway, with five of them drowning. The
tanker had a load of oil estimated at nearly $100 million, reported
Mohamed Olad Hassan of the Associated Press in the Jan. 11
Lakeland Ledger.

Tony Dungy has announced his retirement as head coach of
the Indianapolis Colts. He and his family live in Tampa and have a
ministry in the community, in prisons, with Family First and All-
Pro Dads. His Bucs and Colts teams made the playoffs. 12 times in
14 years.
Dungy is well liked as a coach and Christian family man and
will be speaking in Wauchula later this year, reported Wauchula
First Baptist pastor Rev. Ken Smith.;Duggy won a Super Bowl with
the Colts. ,

A feel-good story happened last week in Maine when George, :
a 20-pound lobster scheduled to be cooked and eaten, was granted
a, pardon and returned to the bay by PETA (People for Ethical
Treatment of Animals).

A research study shows people who sleep eight hours or more
are three times less likely to catch a cold than those who sleep less'
than seven hours, reported Carla Johnson of the Associated Press in
the Jan. 13 Lakeland Ledger.

Tammy Booth of Auburndale believes America should start
producing more of our goods and importing less. This would help
create more American jobs, she wrote in the Ledger recently.

The Salvation Army is a worthwhile charity that helps the
poor.
Tampa Divisional Commander Major Vernon Jewett reports
donations enable the Salvation Army "to provide cash grants for
families in desperate need of assistance for food, medicine, rent
and utilities; visit lonely, hurting people in nursing homes and cor-
rectional facilities; provide meals to hungry men, women and chil-
dren right here in our community; and send disadvantaged children
to camp where they learn Christian values and important life
skills." Jewett cites Matthew 26:11 "The poor you will always
have with you."
Donations can be sent to P.O. Box 270848, Tampa, FL 33622-
0848. Hardee Help Center is affiliated with Salvation Army.

Fort Meade head football coach Mike Hayde has resigned after
11 years. Ijie led the Miners to the state title game seven times, win-
ning one state championship. That was outstanding. Four of the
state title game losses were to private school North Florida

sified with the purchase of.
Main Street Heritage Park. The
city took over the program in
mid-2008 and set about select-
ing its own director.
As part of her resume, three
Osceola County/Kissimmee
references speak highly of her
communication and presenta-
tion skills, enthusiasm and pas-
sion, creative and positive ideas
and other attributes which have
helped her receive recognition
for Kissimmee twice in two
years as a Main Street Com-
munity.
Her office will be in the old
Revell building at 107 E. Main
St., Wauchula, where she will
work with Economic Develop-
ment Director Bill Lambert,
Chamber of Commerce Direc-
tor Casey Dickson and Eco-
nomic Development Liaison
Sarah Pelham. Office Manager
Kimberly Miller will serve all
three community organizations.
At Monday evening's meet-
ing of the Wauchula City Com-
mission, Bob Hemmelstein,
owner with his wife of Mom &
Me at 130 West Main Street,
asked when some action would
begin in getting downtown
Wauchula activity going again.
He was advised that a plan-
ning session on Jan. 5 was
devoted to plans for the future
for downtown Wauchula. Hem-
melstein and other Wauchula
businessmen are invited to the
planning sessions 'on the first
Monday of each month.
Finishing touches to the city's
website are in the works and it
will have the content of work-
shops and meetings on it.
"The best thing you can do is
to hold our feet to the ground,"
said Commissioner Ken Lam-
bert. "We already have impor-
tant infrastructure (including
landscaping) in downtown
Wauchula," he added.
Newman, who was in Milton
Monday on a preplanned con-
ference, will be focusing on
renewal of downtown events, as
well as marketing and develop-
ment of the community. Al-
though the hard-won Main
Street community designation
will continue, Newman's work
will be in behalf of all Wau-
chula businesses, not just the
Main Street corridor.
Newman is a 1996 graduate
of Hardee Senior High School,
continuing her education at the
University of Florida, where
she received bachelor degrees
in 1999 in psychology and in


health sciences with an empha-
sis on rehabilitative services.
She went on to receive a mas-
ter's degree in health science,
rehabilitative counseling, in
2000.
While her husband Shannon
Newman, also a Hardee
County native and graduate of
Hardee High was stationed in
Japan, she worked for three
years in the Family Support
Center in Yokota Air Base as a
personal financial counselor.
He is now with United Parcel
Service in its Lake Wales
offices.
Between ,2004 and, 2005 she
worked as a counselor at the
Meridian Behavior Healthcare
Center in Gainesville. She be-'
gan work for Kissimmee Mat&
Street in 2005.
Her lengthy list of accom-
plishments in Kissimmee in-
cludes budget management,
grant writing, chairing special
events locally and throughout
the state and 15 state awards for
various Main Street programs
and events.
One of her first tasks here
will be to launch a membership
drive to rebuild the Main Street
organization. All past members
and interested businesses are, of
course, invited to resume mem-
berships. She can be reached at
773-3030 or 773-6967.
When asked about her vision
for the new job here, Newman
said, "This is an exciting time
for the city and county regard-
ing development and redevel-
opment opportunities. I am
thrilled to be back in Wauchula
and look forward to working
with the city, Economic Devel-
opment Counsel and Chamber
of Commerce to promote eco-
nomic development and plan
for our future."

"I was not happy with the

He added, "Palmetto is a high

Both losses, however, are not
affecting Hatch or his team
because they are primarily con-
cerned with the upcoming play-
offs that will take place in
Palmetto next week.
"I am very optimistic about
our chances and we are going to
take this week to practice hard
and hopefully get that fire we
had back in us,"' said Hatch.
Another form of preparation
the Lady 'Cats are' facing is
healing the injuries acquired
from previous games.
Hatch concluded, "Our whole
focus this year has been getting
ready for the playoffs and I
think after this week we'll be
fired up and ready to compete
for a title."
The playoff schedule has not

Fish Busters
By BolkWattendorf
.-a Florida Fish &WiFdlife Commission


HOOKING FEDERAL DOLLARS
The Federal Aid in Sportfish Restoration program is one fed-
eral program that really lives up to its name. For more than half a
century, it has been one of the best "user-pays, user-benefits" ini-
tiatives anywhere.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission has re-
ceived more than $11 million each year from these matching funds
to sustain and enhance public fishing opportunities, which return a
$7.5 billion economic benefit to the state annually and.provide,46
million days of recreational enjoyment.
The original program was created in 1950. Under it, fishing
tackle is assessed an excise fee at the manufacturers' level, and
resulting funds are allocated to state game and fish agencies. The
original Dingell-Johnson Act was expanded in 1984, through the
Wallop-Breaux Amendment, to include import duties on sport-fish-
ing equipment and pleasure boats as well as tax revenue from
motorboat fuel sales.
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service determines how much, of
these taxes are returned to each state, based on its size and the num-
ber of paid fishing license holders. Since Florida does not charge
saltwater-fishing license fees to resident shoreline anglers or
require anyone under 16 or resident adult over 65 to purchase a
freshwater or saltwater license, we recover a somewhat smaller
proportion of the funds than some other states do. :
Still, Sportfish Restoration generated $13.3 million for Florida
in 2008, of which 15 percent ($2 million) provided for both fresh-
and saltwater boating access, including building and maintaining
boat ramps, courtesy docks and trailer parking.
Of the remaining $11.3 million, freshwater fisheries conserva-
tion received $5.3 million and saltwater attained $6 million.
Freshwater funding is used primarily to support the many pro-
grams that ensure Florida remains the Fishing Capital of the World.
This includes evaluating key fisheries to determine the appropriate
regulations, fish stocking, habitat enhancement, aquatic plant man-
agement and infrastructure needs like boat ramps, fishing piers and
fish attractors. The funds also support applied research, hatchery
operations, outreach activities for youth, and communications pro-
grams to keep the angling public informed.
The fishing tackle and boating industries pay these taxes up
front and then pass the cost on to anglers and boaters. Each recre-
ationist pays a minor share. However, the accumulated impact is
one of the strongest forces helping ensure there will be fishing and
boating access in the future, that aquatic habitats are protected and
restored, and that our waters contain healthy and abundant sport
fishes to sustain quality recreational fishing.
In turn, sport fishing not only provides millions of hours of
healthy, relaxing enjoyment for anglers and boaters, it also pro-
vides a tremendous economic benefit to local communities and
businesses. The angling public and fishing industry together serve
as watchdogs to ensure that the user who pays into the system
directly benefits.
"Put, Grow and Take" is an expression fisheries biologists use
to describe stocking a small fish into a healthy environment, letting
it grow and allowing it to be caught by an angler as a much bigger
fish.
Sportfish Restoration works the same way with the little
money going into the system being returned and expanded to give
the angler more than his money's worth.

*Wauchula on Main Street at 7
p.m. Jerold Knight, committee
chairman responsible for the
"Super Sixties Reunion," antici-
pates over 1,200 people coming
to the block party.
"It's a very conservative
number, because the block
party is open to anyone," said
Knight.
He added, "Many people.
from other classes before and
after the '60s will be coming
out to see old friends."
Due to the immense amount
of expected people, Wauchula
Police Chief William Beattie
has ordered that Main Street
will be blocked off at both
Seventh and Eighth avenues.
Parking for the block party
will be available at the County
Courthouse, Wauchula State
Bank parking lot, and at Town
Center (where the old S&S
Grocery used to be).
The block party will have
plenty of entertainment for
everyone to enjoy. According to
Knight, Earl Smith will have 10
to 12 classic '60s cars that will
be/on display around Heritage
Park. An ongoing slide show of
pictures from each class will
also be shown throughout the
evening.
There will also be live music
performed by The Wild Cats,
formerly a local '60s high-
school" band known as The-
Challengers. They are set to get
the crowd dancing at around
7:30 p.m., and will play well
into the night until 11. Songs
from the decade will resonate
throughout Main Street, with
such classics as those by The
Rolling Stones, The Beatles,
Elvis Presley and many more.
This is the first time the band
has played together since the
'60s. Band members include
Dan Reid, lead guitar and
vocals; Keith Hope, rhythm
guitar and vocals; Jim See,
rhythm guitar and vocals;
Laurie Linder, bass guitar; ahd
Reid Crews, drums. Keyboard
player Bruce Durrance was
recently added to the band.

balloon launch at Torrey Oaks
Golf Course, located on U.S. 17
North. There will be 12 bal
loons and 48 riders who wil
float above Hardee County
drifting to the landing site.
Riders had to register for the
event, and it was not solely foi
reunion goers. Loraine Brad-
dock won a balloon ride after
she bought the winning ticke
from a Project Graduation fund
raising raffle.
Spectators can watch the col

Hot-air balloons aren't the
only event happening at Torrey

The golf course has limited

ties has been changed, accord-
ing to Knight.
"We are no longer parking al

BOND ISSUE
e Continued From 1A
- Thursday, said Morgan.
The possibility of the revenue
e bonds is to stimulate economic
development in the county by
g providing jobs for the construc-
o tion and operation of the facili-
ty. "It's a good public purpose,
which involves the IDA,"
explained Morgan.
n -County Economic Develop-
ment Director Bill Lambert said
the planning began last July
s with consideration of an assist-
ed living facility for First
c Baptist Church. Lambert said it
would be better that it not be 4
d specific church project and he
would work with the ministerial
association or someone else. In
0 the end, the property on the
west end of town became avail-
able as did the eco-iomic stimu-
lus money. ,,. .-
Steve Grig's," spt'aking for
Mills Corp., said Mills has
committed to using.local con-
struction people as much as
- possible.
Local builder Wayne Gourley
was pleased to hear that it
t would not be in competition to
Resthaven, Hardee Health Care
o Center or other local facilities
S and that local workers would be
f employed.
d Commissioner Minor Bryant,
r agreed but wondered aloud if
the $250,000 per unit would be
7 affordable for Hardee coun-
tians. Morgan said demograph-
ics and market studies show it
will be.
' Lambert said he had gone to
e Philadelphia to see the Mills
r apartment complexes there.
Residents are independent.
They can eat restaurant-style at
the facility or go about as they
please as long as they have their
vehicles and are independent.
When they can no longer drive
e and need a greater level of care,
they move to the assisted living
area. There is also a demen-
tia/Alzeheimer's care unit. "It's
like Mills has a mission to do it
this way," he described. A
dementia unit is not included in
current construction plans.
The proposed facility is with-
in the city limits. Central
S Florida Regional Planning
Council will assist the city to
amend its Comprehensive Land
Use Plan to include it in the
city's five-year plan.

A balanced diet is a cookie in

Saturday at HJH, and at around
6 p.m. classmates will eat din-
ner in the cafeteria.
"The only thing we asked
people to bring was desserts for
the reunion," said Knight. "We
have over 75 desserts made by
the '60s alumni! Seventy-five
different desserts!"
The reunion is set to last until
8 p.m. After that, classmates
spanning over a decade will
depart.
On Sunday the alumni are
invited to visit the churches
they attended in their earlier
years, and that ends the three-
day super reunion.
The Super Sixties Reunion
has taken almost 11 months of
planning and preparation by the
Super Sixties Reunion Com-
mittee, and is set to be Hardee
County's largest high-school
reunion to date.

Wildcat Soccer Prepares For Districts


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Getting everyone healthy for
district competition is the main
goal for.boys soccer.
Coach Gilbert Vasquez has
had to give reserves a lot of
playing time lately as he has
been forced to keep out injured
starters, senior goalie Humberto
Nolasco, senior midfielder
Eliseo Diaz and junior sweeper
Ezequiel Macedo.
As a result, "the young Wild-
cats have shown much im-
provement through hard team
work at practice. While Friday's
game against the Palmetto
Tigers was not one of the best
games of the season, it allowed
for an excellent education on
the intensity of playing against
a high-caliber team," said Vas-
quez.
The 'Cats ended the season
on Tuesday with a boys-only
game at Sarasota Booker. The
girls had played a solo game
against Booker to start the sea-
son.
Last week's action began


with a bit of frustration as
Hardee traveled to Palmetto on
Tuesday only to have the lights
misfire on one end of the field,
rescheduling the game to Friday
night.
On Thursday, Hardee hosted
Braden River. The Wildcats
played a strong first half, hold-
ing the Pirates to a 2-1 lead.
Freshman Misael Garcia picked
up the only score for Hardee
against "the fast, talented
Braden River squad," said
Vasquez.
In the second half, the coach
opted to rotate reserves in an
out to give everyone playing
time and experience and rest
some starters. I was quite sat-
isfied with their performance,
and accept the 7-1 loss to give
us more depth for districts. With
injuries, we may need everyone
for district play."
Hardee returned to Palmetto
on Friday night, and will go
there again for district playoffs
next week.
"The Wildcats put up a fero-
cious fight against the Tigers,


but to no avail," reported Vas-
quez. The Tigers were playing
"their oldest team ever," ac-
cording to the Palmetto coach,
speaking of his senior-laden
team's 8-0 win.
The Narvaez brothers, junior
Ivan and freshman starter Ed-
gar, "worked hard all night in
their effort to stop the steadily
advancing score of the Palmetto
team," said Vasquez.
Palmetto, a historically
strong soccer team, was able to
shoot successfully against a pair
of goalies playing the position
for the first time in place of
Nolasco. Junior Val Rosalez
played the first half and made
several stops, although five got
into the net. Rosalez traded
positions with left front striker
Garcia for the remainder of the
game. "Both players did an out-
standing job but were no match
for the sure-footed Tigers,"
commented the coach.
Soph Eduardo Macedo took
over the defensive mid-fielder
position normally played by his
junior brother Emidio, who had

County Delays Impact Fees Again


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Impact fees for development
around the county have been
delayed for the fifth time.
Ordinance 2009-02, approv-
ed by the Hardee County Com-
mission last week, puts off
implementing impact fees for at
least another six months.
Commissioner Terry Atchley,
at a certification meeting for
new commissioners was in
Gainesville but left notes of his
wishes in various matters
scheduled. He preferred that
impact fees be delayed a year.
The other four commission-
ers decided that it was better to
delay implementing the fees for
six months at a time. That
means residential, commercial,
and school impact fees for resi-
dential. development are de-
layed until July 1. Collecting
industrial and warehouse devel-
opment impact fees is delayed
to Oct. 1.
Originally at 75 percent of
recommended levels, impact
fees were changed in early 2007
to 25 percent of recommended
levels. The totals are $1,280 for
single-family homes county-
wide and $1,128 for those in the
incorporated areas of the coun-
ty. Additional transportation
impact fees will vary from $999
to $1,577.
The levels for multi-family
houses, mobile homes and
hotel/motel rooms also vary
accordingly. Impact fees will
fund parks and recreation, the
library, jail, fire-rescue, general
government, law enforcement,
transportation infrastructure
Sand schools for. new growth.


In other action, the commis-
sion:
updated advisory boards
and named three replacements.
Calvin Roberts was appoint-
ed to the Construction Industry
Licensing Board and Construc-
tion Industry Board of Adjust-
ments and Appeals to fill the
vacancy created when Terry
Atchley was elected county
commissioner. Other members
of those boards, who agreed to
another three-year term are Sam
Albritton, Bud Heggie and
Donald Gray.
Two vacancies were filled on
the nine-member Planning &
Zoning Board. Don Chancey
resigned at the end of his term
and Max Ullrich chose not to be
reappointed. Rafael Arce was
named to Chancey's position
and former commissioner
Gordon Norris will take
Ullrich's place. Charles Parker
agreed to another three-year
term.
I Alan Lang was reappointed
to a two-year term on the State
Housing Initiative Program's
Local Affordable Housing Ad-
visory Committee and Citizens
Advisory Task Force.
Four members of the Hardee
County Library Advisory
Board, Vincent Valletutti, Jan
McKibben, Gina Neuhofer and
Gayle Knight, were reappointed
to two-year terms.
To a visiting group of about
20 in a nine-month Leadership
Training program, Codunty
Manager Lex Albritton noted
that anyone interested in serv-
ing on advisory boards in the
future should complete an
application and get it on file at


his office so when a vacancy
arises, he/she can be consid-
ered. At next Friday's planning
session, vacancies on the
Economic Develoment Council
may be filled.

-' SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



Botanists report that the
trees need the winds of March
to Vlex their branches and
trunks. The sap is drawn up
because of the bluster of the
wind, and the budding leaves
are nourished.
You and I are like the trees.
We need the storms to
strengthen us.
A blustery period in our
lives is often a prelude to a
spring of fruit bearing and for-
tune.
Think of Joseph. Had he not
been a prisoner, he wouldn't
have become a prime minister.
Going through a storm?
Trust God. He'll enable you to
turn your trials into triumphs,
your setbacks into successes,
and the bluster into blessings.


People desire designer products because they have
become known for style throughout the years. The
"munmes"' assure us of quality.
We. too, are known by our names. Mention of "John
Smith" immediately inspires a positive or negative reaction.
depending on the man's reputation. A good name is indeed ,
our most priceless, and most perishable, possession.
There is one name we can always count on. the most
hallowed name of all God. "The name of the Lord is a
strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe."
(Proverbs 18:10) Praise God's name in His house this week.

Wauchula Depot Work Begins Pirates Punch Hardee Squads


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Nearly 11 years have gone by
since the city accepted the do-

The*title to the historic 1915

water and the fifth well projects
continue as they are important

There may, however, be a

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both the Hardee boys and
girls basketball teams fell to the
visiting Braden River Pirates in
last week's only hoop games.
Hardee holiday rust was evi-
dent in both encounters, al-
though the Wildcats got going
and cut the Pirate lead to eight
points at halftime.
The varsity girls have three
games this week. Tuesday, there
was a varsity-only home game
against Avon Park. Today
(Thursday), it is a trip to Lake-
land Christian for a JV-Varsity
clash at 6 p.m. and 7:30 respec-
tively. Tomorrow, there is a var-
sity-only double-header at Pal-
metto, the girls varsity playing
at 6 p.m. and the boys varsity
about 7:30.
Next week, there are only
two game, at Sebring on Tues-
day, and at home against Sara-
sota Booker on Thursday. The
season finale is at Lake Placid
on Jan. 28. The girls district
playoffs are at Avon Park the
week of Feb. 2-7.
Hardee boys, meanwhile,
also have a trio of games this
week. Tuesday's were at Avon
Park and today's are a visit
from DeSoto. As noted above,
the Friday games are another
girl/guy double-header at Pal-
metto.
Next week's games include a
visit from Sebring on Tuesday,
a trip to Mulberry on Thursday
and another to Booker on
Friday. The boys finish up their
season with a trip to DeSoto on
Jan. 30 and a varsity-only trip to
Okeechobee in a 7 p.m. game
on Feb. 3.
Boys district playoffs are the
week of Feb. 9-13.
At home on Friday against


Braden River, the Hardee girls
never got on track. The Lady
Pirates came in with a 9-5
record, 5-2 in district play.
Their starters are three seniors
and a pair of sophs. Talented,
tall soph Caitlyn Benedetto and
senior Heather Mirabella paced
their team with 19 and 15 points
respectively. No Hardee players
had more than five points.
It was not for lack of trying,
but simply playing against
superior odds, that did in the
Lady Wildcats. Mirabella set
the tone with a pair of early
steals. Within the first 70 sec-
onds, Braden River had a 6-0
advantage. Ashley Louis dished
to Sabrina "Noonie" Holmes
for Hardee's first pair of points.
But, by the time the first quarter
ended, Braden River had a 20-
2 advantage.
In the second quarter junior
Tiffany Heath and four other
reserves took the floor for the
Lady Pirates, and the scoring
whirlwind slowed. By halftime,
Louis and Elvira Servin had
scored for Hardee and it was a
24-6 deficit.
The Braden River starters re-
turned to start the second half,
with Benedetto and Mirabella
scoring at will. When the score
got to 50-12 and a running
clock, Braden River reserves
again hit the court. The final
score was 52-13.
For Hardee, Louis had five
points, Servin and Holmes each
three and Maria Avalos two
points. Danely Flores had a
blocked shot, and Louis six
rebounds, an assist and a steal.
After a warmup, the boys
teams went at it. Braden River
started seniors Willie McNeal
and Brad Jackson and juniors
Neil Walker, Marc McKoan and

6-5 Casey Bobelis" against
Wildcats senior Postene Louis-
jeune, junior Antjuan Jones,
soph Carl Brown and freshmen
Keshun Rivers and Jajuan
Hooks.
It was quickly evident why
the Pirates hold a 9-3 record, 4-
2 in district play. Mcfloan spun
through the lane for a deuce and
Hooks answered with a trey for
Hardee's only lead of the game.
As the quarter went on, Bobelis
scored 14 of his game-high 15
points in that first period, which
ended with Braden River up 19-
9.
The Wildcats outscored the
Pirates 12-10 in the second
stanza and cut the lead to eight
points, 29-21, at halftime when
Louisjeune grabbed a defensive
rebound and threw long to
Jones on the run.
The teams traded hoops to
start the second half, but
McNeil and company used the
outside pickpocket and defen-
sive control of the boards to run
the score up to 45-25 before the
third-quarter buzzer. In the final
period, reserves for both teams
hit the floor. The damage had
been done and it ended 53-36
on a Hooks three-pointer before
the game finished.
McKoan joined Bobelis with
15 points apiece as high scorers,
McNeal added a dozen, junior
Alex Hoff four points and
senior Jon Wilson, junior
Andrew Pesognelli, senior Tim
Kenney and Jackson each two
points.
For Hardee, high scorer was
junior Jarrell Ellis with nine
points. Jones added eight,
Jajuan Hooks seven, Louijeune
six, and Andrew Hooks, Justin
Bromley and Tre' Anderson
each two points.

Local projects under the Civil
Works Administration program
are employing 748 men and
women with a weekly payroll
of $7,500. The largest single
project is at the Wauchula air-
port where 265 men are work-
ing.
The fifth annual Hardee
Strawberry Festival will open in
Bowling Green on Wednesday.
The Hardee County Commis-
sioners have donated $100 to
the project and civic groups are
also giving their support.
Hardee Countians experi-
enced the coldest weather of the
present winter yesterday as the
mercury hit 34 degrees here, the
lowest in two years. Rain this
week totaled .21 inches on
Monday, bringing much relief
to crops as it was the first appre-
ciable rain since November.

25 YEARS AGO
The solid waste committee
set next Monday as the official
opening date of the new land-
fill. Opening of the landfill cul-
minates about seven years of
struggle and planning by the
county and municipal officials.
Special assessment tax bills for
use of the landfill and fire pro-
tection are slated to go out
Monday.
The Hardee Wildcats disre-
garded the No. 5 ranking of a
very strong Bulldog team from
Arcadia and to the delight of the
fans put "the bite" on the Dogs

was emotionally wrought at the
end of the game. Leonard Faulk

It is good to see just about
everyone is here and the park
full.
Christmas Day saw about
217 residents attend Christmas
dinner. Cindy and Bill Johnson
were the organizers and did an
excellent job. We will miss
them, as they have decided to
travel west 'for the balance of
this season.
The Nite Lites played for the
New Year's Dance. Linda
Lockett, Leona Munsie and
Dale Baker sold 50/50 tickets,
which was won by Walt Wilson.
Door prizes were donated by
Don and Jeri Plumley, Midge
Saunders, Dale and Sylvia
Baker, Paul and Lois Conley
and Jacki and Tom Ely.
The next dance is Saturday
with Steve Baker. There will be
a bean-soup supper on Friday.
The Fun Auction will be held
Feb., 7. Watch for announce-
ments in the coming weeks
regarding the 18th annual luau.
DESSERT & FASHION
SHOW
The craft club will again host
the show on Feb. 2, with dona-
tions going to breast cancer.
Ladies, mark this date on your


calendar and come out and
enjoy some delicious desserts
and support a great cause.
DUCK MYSTERY
Betty and Jack Jacobs started
out with one adult duck lawn
ornament on their lawn. One
neighbor thought it was lonely
and added another adult duck.
Then another neighbor added
two baby ducks. At last count,
Betty has three adult ducks and
12 baby ducks. Betty blames
Dale Baker, but she should be
looking to some of her neigh-
bors.
When you see Betty, ask her
how her ducks are doing. Who
knows, maybe the Jacobs' lawn
will be filled with ducks.
KOFFEE KLATCH
The hosts on Dec. 31 were
Cal and Betty Gadsby. Gaylord
Williams led the U.S. Pledge,
Pete Doherty led the Canadian
Pledge and Don Merillat led the

English Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep of Wauchula recently pre-
sented a check for $540 to Bowling Green Elementary
School. Chrysler Corporation donated $50 for the event
plus $5 for each test drive of a Chrysler 300C, PT Cruiser
or Aspen vehicle. Pictured (from left) are Kevin Smith,
English sales/community relations representative, and
school principal Kathy Clark.
All that in this delightful garden grows/Should happy be, and
have immortal bliss.


The holidays are over, so life
is getting back to normal. The
decorations are all put away for
another year. I love the holi-
days, as it seems to me that peo-
ple are in a wonderful mood all
the time. Wish we could keep
that attitude all through the
year.
Welcome back to the rest of
our returning snowbirds. I also
want to welcome all of our new
residents to our park. As I walk
around, I see some new faces. It
is nice to have you with us. As
the season goes on, we hope to
get to know all your names.
BLOOD DRIVE
We had a blood drive the
other day. They said at coffee
that it was the largest this park
has ever had, with donors and
just people who wanted to
donate and could not.
The understanding is that
when a person goes into the
bloodmobile and does all the
paperwork, the park still gets
credit even if your blood cannot
be taken. So please, next time
they are here, come down and
try to give blood.
GAMES
Bingo was played on Monday,
and Thursday nights as usual.
On Jan. 1, Ardie McDonald and
Connie Fisher split the mid-
cover all. Muriel Gurney won
the final cover all. Jan. 5 win-
ners were Katie Crawford, mid-
cover all, and Jean Miller, final
cover all. '
Euchre was played Saturday
and Wednesday nights. The
winners for Jan. 3 were first,
Frank Ardelean; second, Ralph
Forman; and third, Mabel
Burns. Eunice Franks and

CANDLELIGHT SERVICE
The Rev. William Martin's
message was, "We celebrate
with joy God's gift of His Son,
the King of kings." Our circle of.
joy started with one lighted can-
dle, then another and another
until the circle was complete.
Soloist Bud Snyder added to the-
evening with the solo "Oh, Holy
Night." The chorus sang .
"Angels We Have Heard On.
High," "Wonders of Wonders"
and "There's A Song In The
Air." Hazel Roberts organized
the program and Beth Walton
handled the musical arrange-
ments.
The beauty of Christmas was

Little Charlie Creek RV News
By Linda Snowden & Jean Sian


The Oasis RV News
By Georgianna Mills


Edna and I want to welcome
all the snowbirds who have
returned and all the new resi-
dents to6 Pioneer Creek. Make
sure you come and get involved
so you can meet and make new
friends.
CHAPEL
Fred and Nancy Thompson
and Jim and Sharon Magee
greeted and served 170 for
Communion. The opening
prayer was said by Jean Chaffin
and a duet was sung by Bob and
Cheryl Conkle. The choir sang
"Shine, Jesus, Shine." Accomp-
anying them were Sandy Feeser
and directed by Ardeth Johns.
COFFEE HOUR
Doughnuts and coffee were
enjoyed by 198 for the first cof-
fee hour of 2009. Our speaker
was Jennifer Goff from New
Glass located in Winter Haven.
Jim and Marilyn Achard are
such great residents to have
donated a wheelchair for our
park. This was such a wel-
comed gift.
Our New Year's Dance was
well-attended, with 173 wear-
ing hats and popping balloons
to bring in the new year.
We appreciate the 75 pounds
of tabs collected for the
Shriner's Hospital by Bob
Johns. What a great way to help
them help others.
The Jam Session is open to
all the parks. Come and join in
on Sunday 1-3. Our first one
this season was well-attended
with participants and specta-
tors.


ACTIVITIES AND
SUCCESSES
The shufflers are having a
ham-and-eggf breakfast Satur-
day, and the tickets will be sold
door-to-door.
Horseshoes had a meet at
Reflections Park, with our park
winning both A and B teams.
Our team is now being called
"Killers!"
Bowling winners for the last
week of December were Kay
Glover for the women, with
high series and high game, and,
Steve MacIntire for the men,
with high series and high game.
SPOTLIGHT
Glen and Judy Perkins, resi-
dents of Dryridge, Ky., married
for 16 years, have an extended
family of five children, 12
grandchildren and two great-
grandchildren.
They became residents of our
park after visiting friends here.
The activities available and all
the nice people were the decid-
ing factor for this to be their
winter home.
Glen retired from Yellow
Freight Lines as a truck driver
and is a gentleman farmer at
heart, and loves riding his
motorcycle as well as grooming
his yard. Judy was a home
health care nurse. As a snow-
bird, she is our decoration
chairman as of this season. She
loves and is a talented singer.
She sings in our choir, and
gospel is her favorite to sing.
Judy also loves to play bingo.
It's people like this that make
our park family so great!

The holidays have come and
gone, and we are all settling in
to the activities here at the park,
and are there activities!
PRAYERS
Our sincere sympathies go
out to Bill and Margaret Terrell
on the loss of Margaret's sister
in-law.
We are requesting prayers for
Russ Sian who, at this writing,
is in intensive care in Sebring.
We are awaiting results of tests.
COFFEE TIME
The Monday morning coffee
gave evidence that a lot of resi-
dents, old and new, have arrived
in the past week. We welcomed
those who are returning and
those that are new to the park.
The 50/50 .was won by Tru-
man Bissett, Dot Reynolds,
Elwell Oakleaf and Maxine
Jenkins.
A "Little Charlie Creek RV
Park Cook Book" will be pro-
duced, and those wishing to
have those special recipes in the
book should get them to Martha
Glosser by Feb. 1. This will be
a real winner, since there are so
many great cooks here in the
park, as was evidenced by all
the goodies floating around
here over the holidays.
UPCOMING EVENTS
Bible study will begin
Thursday at 10 a.m. in the Rec
Hall. The study will be the book

games winners were: Around

pletion of the diagram. Around
