84-Year-Old Victim Of Home Invasion


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two robbers burst into the
home of an 84-year-old Zolfo
Springs woman in the middle of
the afternoon on Tuesday.
The woman complained of
pain but was not seriously


injured in the home invasion,
Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office said
early Wednesday morning as
investigation into the crime
continued.
Dey said the Sheriffs Office
was called in at 3:42 p.m.


Tuesday to assist the Zolfo
Springs Police Department with
the case.
He said two men, believed to
be Hispanic, broke into the
locked back door of the house
on Fifth Street as the elderly
woman inside was in her bed-


room.
One of the pair kept the
woman on her bed in the bed-
room as the second searched the
home, ransacking the contents
and stealing a small amount of
cash.
"She attempted to get up one


time, and he pushed her back on
the bed," Dey said the victim
described. He added that the
woman was not hit or otherwise
harmed by the thieves.
Dey noted the woman report-
ed the man who stayed with her
in the bedroom remained on his


cell phone the whole time,
which she described as 15 min-
utes.
The victim never saw the sec-
ond man, he said, and did not
see how they left her house or
where they fled to.

The current estimated Florida orange crop is 158 million
boxes. This past season the state harvested 170 million boxes.
Our current grapefruit crop is estimated at 23 million boxes.
Florida has 576,000 acres of citrus which employs nearly
76,000 people, reports Florida Citrus Mutual. Mutual has about
8,000 grower members. Mutual figures the state citrus industry cre-
ates a $9.3 billion impact.

The Sarasota Herald-Tribune recently reported birdwatchers
and other wildlife viewers have a,$3.1 billion impact on the state's
economy, quoting the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.

Dr. Elver Hodges of Wauchula said too many Americans
signed loans to buy $200,000 homes when they should have been
buying $100,000 homes.

Tom Watts of Lemon Grove reports that Hardee High graduate
Robert Castillo became a Marine Corps sergeant and is now going
into the ministry. He excelled on the Marines boxing team for sev-
eral years and has served in several countries including France and
Afghanistan.
Watts said Castillo caught the attention of his Marines leader
by finishing in first place out of 1,500 runners in a five-mile event.
Castillo, 32, is engaged to a nursing student. His parents were
fruit pickers from Mexico, and Castillo became an American citi-
zen in the Marines. He has bought his parents a home in southeast
Georgia.
Watts reported Castillo was trained in boxing by Troy Carter
in Wauchula. Carter, who has moved to Philadelphia, later trained
Edner Cherry in Wauchula. Cherry is the No. 10 lightweight boxer
in the world.

Jimmy Cheek, former senior vice president, Agriculture and
Natural Resources, University of Florida Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences (IFAS), became chancellor of the University
of Tennessee Feb. 1.
He said FAS has facilities in all of Florida's 67 counties.
Hardee has one of the 13 research and education centers in|Florida
- the Range Cattle Station in Ona.
IFAS is spearheading research in the fight against citrus green-
ing and is helping to set safety standards for Florida's tomato grow-
ers. IFAS is doing research on alternative fuels. This fall UF will
offer a course in biofuels.
IFAS reports Florida's agriculture, natural resources, and relat-
ed industries produced $137 billion in sales in 2007.
Ag economist Alan Hodges said the agricultural economic sec-
tor includes farms, forests, fisheries, mining, fertilizer manufactur-
ing, sawmills, fruit and vegetable processing, landscaping, food
stores, restaurants, building material and garden stores, pest con-
trol, golf courses and recreational fishing.
An unemployed single mother of six children in California
recently gave birth to octuplets. All the kids came from embryo
transplants. These births have created a lot of interest, controversy
and discussion of ethics, science-and common sense.

Another item that defies common sense the Polk County
School Board recently approved spending $77,000 to remove and
relocate gopher tortoises from 37 acres designed for a new middle
school near Loughman. Certified specialists charge about $900 per
turtle.
In the old days people would catch and eat the turtles or bull-
doze over their burrows.

The annual Hardee County fair is underway this week. There
is something for everyone at the county fair.

Tom Palmer, environmental writer for the Lakeland Ledger,
recently went down Peace River in canoes with some other people.
They put in at the County Line Road Bridge in Bowling Green.
He reported the seven-day trip covered 78 miles and they saw
80 species of birds. There are few homes along the river until you
reach near the coast of Charlotte Harbor.
He counted 11 rope swings, 67 kildeer, a painted bunting, a
red-headed woodpecker, a few bald eagles, two southern white but-
terflies, and a dragonfly. They heard coyotes one night.
The river was deemed too shallow to put the canoes in near the
river's source at the State Rd. 60 bridge east of Bartow.

The weather has been dry recently. The St. Pete Times report-
ed Tampa Bay Water's 15-billion-gallon water reservoir is about 30
days from being drained dry and the Hillsborough River is 80 per-
cent below normal. Rainfall has been below average since 2007.
The Ledger reported Florida could get $12.2 billion over the
next three years from the new $789 billion federal stimulus plan.
The state could get $3.2 billion this year, $5.2 billion in the 2009-
10 budget year and $3.8 billion the following fiscal year. Florida's
Mr. Sunshine Gov. Charlie Crist is delighted.
Some of that should filter into Hardee County.

Gossip needn't be false to be evil-there's a lot of truth that
shouldn't be passed around.

Johnson, Third Runner-Up Kaitlyn Ellis, First Runner-Up Shelby Lambert, 2009 Junior Miss and Miss Congeniality

Dey said officers initiated a
canine track of the suspects,
which ended in the area of SR
66.
Meanwhile, the 84-year-old,
who complained her back was
hurt when she was pushed back
onto her bed, was taken to
Florida Hospital Wauchula for
observation. She since has been
released, Dey said.
Authorities are searching for
the man who guarded her in the
bedroom, described as a His-
panic male. about 26 years old
who is heavy-set and has short
hair. He was wearing a red T-
shirt, she told detectives.
isLead investigator in the case
is sheriffs Det. David Drake,
Dey said. The crime-scene
processor was-DYet. "Rus-ell
Conley.
A break in the case may have
come later Tuesday, Dey report-
ed, when thieves broke into the
supermarket there at 9:15 p.m.
Dey said two Hispanic males
broke a front window of the
store on U.S. 17 South and went
inside, taking several items and
some coins, T-shirts and calling
cards. They left after five min-
utes, he said.
Dey said the men were cap-
tured on video, and one of the
pair is wearing a red T-shirt.
Both the Wauchula Police
Department and the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office re-
sponded to assist the ZSPD, he
said. Sheriffs Det. Conley will
serve as the case agent in that
crime.

Hardee County Sheriff's
Office arid Wauchula Police
Departthent authorities allege
that the quintet carried out at
least three robberies in a single
night, accosting customers at
the City Stop convenience store
and the Wally Wash car wash
and victims on Florida Avenue.
Authorities said one or two
members of the group would
serve as drivers, dropping the
others off as they selected a vic-
tim. Waiting, the car would then
circle back to pick up the' rob-
bers after the thievery was com-
plete.
Their undoing came as they
carried out their plot at the
Wally Wash at 938 U.S. 17 S. in
Wauchula. Two detectives sta-
tioned nearby watched as three
of the group got out of their car
and approached two men who
were vacuuming their vehicle at
Wally Wash.
They twisted the men's arms
behind their backs, threatened
them and robbed them.
Officers gave chase, and the
thieves were arrested.

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
As schools statewide are hit
hard by the budget hammer,
Hardee County's top education
official hopes the local legisla-
tive delegation can take some
dents out of the damage.
"State Rep. Baxter Troutman
and State Sen. J.D. Alexander
were in town on Jan. 23 to listen
to public requests for legislative
action in the upcoming session
of the Florida Legislature,
which begins March 3. Various
local governmental and agency
representatives were there, with
lists of needs and wishes.
While Schools Superinten-
dent David Durastanti was
among those not present that
morning, he has prepared a list
of issues he would like to see
Troutman and Alexander add-
ress when they return to
Tallahassee.
Not surprisingly, five of his
half-dozen requests deal with
money.
Tops on Durastanti's list,
however, is school grading, that
report-card letter grade
assigned to every public school
in the state each year.
Durastanti asks that legisla-

Day T
By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
A trial forage experiment is
being conducted on the dairy of
V&W Farms Inc., which will
determine if Triticale will be
used in Florida.
The dairy is located at 8798
SR 64, east of Zolfo Springs,
and will host a field day on
Tuesday at 1:30 p.m.
Triticale is a grain, like grass,
with a head like wheat, which is
used to increase milk produc-,
tion in dairy cows. It is also
used as feed for beef cattle or
for any four- stomached rumi-
nant animal.
According to Lockie Gary of
the Hardee County Extension
Office, there are 25 different
varieties of Triticale being
grown on the dairy on about
one acre of land.


tors delay planned changes to
high-school grading, which he
I says would then allow time for
study of the variation in school
districts, secondary-school pro-
grams, demographics and atten-
dance zones.
Much hinges on the school
grade, and he also asks legisla-
tors to "consider additional
revisions" to the Annual Yearly
, Progress component of the No
Child Left Behind requirements
and to the "related impacts on
schools in need of improve-
ment."
On the money side, Dura-
stanti relates several concerns
prompted by the current state
and national economic climate.
He asks Troutman and
Alexander to consider boosting
what is known as the "sparsity"
component of the Florida Edu-
cation Finance Program. Such
an enhancement would help
small rural districts such as
Hardee's "to meet the student
needs during this time of eco-
nomic difficulty," Durastanti
says.
Further, he wants legislators
to ensure school districts have
stability in the Florida Edu-
cation Finance Program, as



e Field

iesday
Uary said that Florida is a
milk-deficient state because it
.has more people than cows, and
therefore more milk has to be
bought out-of-state to supply
the masses. The hope of
Triticale is that it can be grown
in Florida, increasing milk pro-
duction.
Dr. Ann Blount of the North
Florida research center affiliat-
ed with the University of
Florida will come and view the
Triticale as well as clip, weigh
and measure the amount of for-
age produced.
According to Gary, this is a
trial experiment and not yet
completed but he anticipates
results in the next 30 days.
Visitors to the field day will
be given a tour and have the
opportunityt to talk with special-
ists. Call Gary at 773-2164.


property-value variations im-
pact certified tax rolls and, ulti-
mately, school taxes statewide.
Another issue is the contin-
ued funding of regional educa-
tional groups, such as the
Heartland, Educational Consor-
tium, which provide services to
small and rural districts. The
Heartland Educational Consor-
tium, for instance, often pools
resources and "clout." The
Florida Information Resource
Network needs continued fund-
ing from the state as well,
Durastanti says.
Durastanti notes that "during
the current economic condi-
tion," the Legislature needs to
consider delaying the imple-
mentation of any new programs
with financial impacts on
school districts. He points to
such examples as the middle-
school physical education pro-
gram, e-testing (online)..for the
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test and extending the
Florida Virtual School to in-
clude kindergarten and all ele-
mentary grades.
One issue Durastanti presents
to Hardee County's legislative
delegation will soon also go
before voters here.


Durastanti would like the
Legislature to provide for 'tflex-
ible use of funds." He would
like to see flexible funding in
all areas of the Florida Edu-
cation Finance Program, he
tells Troutman and Alexander.
And, Durastanti seeks "miaxi-
mum" flexibility of the discre-
tionary millage districts .assess
for capital outlay.
It is that issue which voters
will decide, in part, on March
24, when a referendum ballot
will ask Hardee Countians to
allow the school district to
switch tax dollars earmarked.
for capital projects over to the
general operating fund instead.
Several other school districts
have done so to help them
through lean times.
Currently, the Legislature
allows the funding shift only
via voter approval, and only for
a four-year period. After that'
time, a school district would
have to seek another referen-
dum vote to continue diverting
capital-outlay dollars.
Durastanti's list joins others
from Hardee County govern-,
ment as Troutman and Alex-
ander prepare to return to'
Tallahassee.


Motorcycle Crash

Takes Ona Man


By KASEY HELMS.
Of The Herald-Advocate
A rear-end collision last
Friday took the life of an Ona
man.
Michael B. Boyd, 47, was
killed when his 2007 Honda
motorcycle was struck from
behind by a vehicle on SR 64 in
Manatee- County, the Florida
Highway Patrol said.
The crash occurred at about
12:05 a.m., west of Dam Road.
According to a report filed by
Tpr. C.A. Fronczak, Boyd was
traveling eastbound when 21-
year-old Mark Thomas Greg-
ory, of Lakewood Ranch, failed
to see him and ran the front of
his 2004 Nissan intothe rear of
Boyd's Honda.
Boyd was thrown from his
motorcycle and came to rest in
the eastbound lane of SR 64.


Both vehicles traveled off the
road, coming to a rest on the
north shoulder of the roadway,
the report said.
Boyd was transported by
Manatee County Emergency
Medical Services to Bayfront
Medical Center in St. Peters-
burg, where he died at 1:22 a.m.
on Friday.
Gregory and his passenger,
20-year-old Early W. Peters Jr.
of Bradenton, were wearing
seatbelts and sustained no in-
juries, Fronczak said.
A blood test to determine
alcohol level, if any, was con-
ducted on Gregory at the scene.
Results are still pending.
The homicide crash investi-
gator is Cpl. Ronnie Highsmith.
Charges in the crash are
pending, the FHP said.

Wildcat Baseball In Tournaments


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat nine
started its season with back-to-
back pre-season tournaments.
After two games in the Fort
Meade Classic, the 'Cats played
Monday night in the first game
of the Highlander Tournament
in Lake Wales. It continues
through this week.
The regular season begins
Tuesday at Braden River, fol-
lowed by the first home game
of the season next Friday, Feb.
27, against Avon Park.
In the Fort Meade Classic,
Hardee opened with a 4 p.m.


game last Thursday against
Lake Wales, which won 7-3.
The Highlanders opened with a
run in the first inning, five more
in the second and a final score
in the fourth.
Hardee cruised scoreless for
the first five innings. In the
sixth soph Kalan Royal led off
with a single went to second on
a Conner Davis hit and came
home on an error on the Davis
hit.
In the top of the seventh,
freshman Wintz Terrell was safe
on an error and Carson Davis
was hit by a pitch. An Adam

Cartwright sacrifice moved the
runners toward home. Both
scored.
Friday's game was against
thie home Fort Meade Miners,
who won 8-7 with a five-run
outburst in the sixth inning.
Hardee put a pair of runs on
the board in the opening inning.
Conner Davis was safe on an
error. With one away, Scott
Donaldson doubled to score
Davis. With two down, Royal
and Tyler Robertson hit back-
to-back singles.
The 'Cats added a run in the
second inning. Dalton Farr sin-
gled and advanced on a Marcus
Chancey sacrifice. With two
down, Ben Krause drew a walk.
Farr scored on an error on a
Donaldson hit, leaving Krause
and Donaldson stranded when
the third out occurred. Fort
Meade got its first score on a
pair of Wildcat errors.
In the third frame, Hardee
plated three more runners.
Royal singled but was out on an
attempted steal. Robertson
walked and Grayson Lambert
singled. Farr, Terrell and Con-
ner Davis singled. A Krause
fielder's choice took out Farr
coming home but, by the time
the dust settled, a Donaldson hit
had helped Robertson, Lambert
and Terrell to score. The Miners
put a pair of runs on the board
on errors. It was a 6-3 game.
Neither team scored in the
fourth inning. In the top of the
fifth, Hardee got its final score.
With two away, Conner Davis
walked, Krause was hit by a
pitch and an error on a Donald-
son hit allowed Davis to come
home. It was 7-3.
In the home half of the sixth,
the Miners hit three singles and
a double, followed by an error.
In all, Fort Meade put five runs
on the board. Since there was
no scoring in seventh inning,
that gave the Miners the victory.

play on Monday at Lake Wales,
playing the host school at 7
p.m.
Hardee stranded Donaldson
in the first inning and went
down in order. in the second
stanza. In the meantime, the
Highlanders plated four runners
in the first inning on a combina-
tion of hit batters, walks and a
hit. Lake Wales added another
run in the second inning.
Hardee got its only run in the
top of the third. Cartwright
stroked one of his two hits for
the night. Conner Davis, Don-
aldson and Royal all walked,
forcing Cartwright home. The
'Cats left runners on the base-
paths in the next four innings
but could not get them home.
The Highlanders added a pair
of scores in the fourth and
another in the sixth to win 8-1.
Head Coach Steve Rewis was
realistic, using tourney time to
get a look at all his players to
see what the season holds. Hop-
efully, when they settle down,
the 'Cats will have a successful
season.
The junior varsity saw its first
action on Tuesday at Fort
Meade. Results were unavail-

Cherry Fight


Canceled


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A disappointed Edner Cherry
returned to Wauchula late
Monday.
The Cherry Bomb's fight,
scheduled for. pay-per-view
from Madison Square Garden
in New York on Saturday night,
was cancelled on Monday due
to a knee injury to his opponent.
Undefeated lightweight
Anthony Peterson, currently
ranked number one by the
World Boxing Council, appar-.
ently injured the knee during
sparring practice.
The news left Cherry without
an opponent after a "great


camp." He had taken off work
at Royal's Furniture to stay in
Tampa to prepare for the
upcoming fight.
"Please tell everyone not to
get the PPV. I really appreciate
their support. They are going to
try to line up something for me
shortly. Meantime, I'll be con-
tinuing my workouts and stay in
shape, so I'll be ready when
they call me," said the 26-year-
old local pro.
"I'm disappointed, but these
things happen. Someone does-
n't make weight, or is injured.
You just lose the payday. But,
you've got to go on," concluded
Cherry.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

AFTER THE WEDDING IS OVER
A woman once confided to me, "I have found my place in life
at last. It is the job of being a faithful wife to my husband and a lov-
ing mother to my children."
This is, at the same time, an ordinary statement and a thunder-
ing revelation.
This woman is a Christian who has been married 15 years and
is active in her local church. How could she have missed such a
commonplace understanding until now?
I think it is because we don't take our lives seriously. We stand
before an altar and promise to love, honor and obey, but the God
part of this transaction is folded away with the nuptial garments.
Living happily ever after is thought to be automatic, but it's not a
guarantee that comes with the wedding ring.
What the romance obscures so often is the presence of a pow-
erful evil spirit determined to destroy this commitment.
Just going to church will not defeat this enemy. Just "trying to
be good" won't do it either. Only our Lord Jesus Christ has more
power, and we need to call on Him for the faithfulness needed
every day as well as for the long-term allegiance that will bring us
up smiling and victorious after 20, 40 or 60 years together.
It's not a knack we need to get the hang of. It's a personal rela-
tionship with our heavenly Friend made strong by constant prac-
tice.

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida
Advocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-
Advocate...

75 Years Ago
J.G. Anderson, local Realtor,
purchased this week seven sets
. of fine horns, already polished
and mounted, which he will dis-
play in his large ranch house 14
miles southwest of Wauchula.
Another novelty is some small
tables with steer horns for legs.
The ranch is being made ready
for the Phi Delta Kappa frater-
nity state convention headquar-
ters in April.

The Wildcat basketeers have
become real conference con-
tenders in recent weeks. During
the last week, local cagers have
won from Bartow to Arcadia.
Tonight (Friday), they entertain
the Winter Haven teams on the
local court.

Timely and helpful talks by
L. Grady Burton and Harry
Stansfield featured the meeting
of the Kiwanis Club Tuesday,
when all but one member
attended. The matter of push-
ing for the payment of poll
taxes for the benefit of schools
was referred to the Kiwanis
education committee with
power to act.

County Commissioner B.A.
Prescott, who has served from
the Popash district for the last
six years, this week announced
his candidacy for re-election.

50 YEARS AGO
Two of the 34 cases of the
docket for the February term
actually went to trial this week
and only one actually reached
the jury. The other blew up in
the prosecutor's face when his
key witness became hopelessly
confused in his testimony. A
jury of six men found local
plumber Merle Vernon guilty of
driving while intoxicated, de-
spite his contention that he was
just groggy from lack of sleep.
Judge Clyde Maddox ordered
him to pay a $100 fine or spend
90 days in jail.

The Hardee Livestock Mark-
et.et -had its'best sale since 1952
."this &ek, according to Market
Manager Russell Farmer. At
Thursday's sale, every pound
averaged $223.94 per hundred
weight, the highest "since our
boom-time cow prices," said
Farmer. C. Howard Stokes
topped the market with a 240-
pound calf to Swift & Co. at 34
cents.

Wauchula is going to have to
buy a new fire truck, just as
soon as Fire Chief Burton


rhinerman@puroclean.com www.puroclean.com/pr-fl


Moseley decides which of six
bids to accept. Bids vary from
$13,900 for a pumper alone to
$18,500. The new truck, taking
the place of the 500-gallon
capacity 1928 model pumper,
will be a triple combination unit
able to be used as a ladder or a
hose unit, and will pump 750
gallons per'minute.

Davis & Roberts lists 15
acres with five acres in bearing
grove for $18,000, and 45 acres
with a nice three-bedroom
home located on good paved
road for $16,500. F.L. Revell
lists a new two-bedroom con-
crete block home in Wauchula
Hills on a paved road for,
$6,750, $750 down and pay-
ments of $60 monthly.-C.T.
Ratliff offers a 10-acre Valencia
grove, 1-year-old, for $7,500.
25 YEARS AGO
Mrs. Adele Graham, the First
Lady of Florida and wife of
Gov. Bob Graham, visited
Zolfo Springs Elementary
School last week to inspect and
endorse the school's highly suc-
cessful volunteer program.

Hold on to your hats folks,
and get ready for a rip-roaring,
rooting-tooting good time. The
second annual Pioneer Days
Rodeo sponsored by the Hardee
County Cattlemen's Associ-
ation is just over a week away.
The rodeo, with its clowns,
cowboys and bucking broncos,
will be in the covered -rena at
the county fairgrounds on Alt-
man Road. Showtime is 2 p.m.
both days.

S&S Suprex has assorted
Sunshine 12-ounce packages of
sandwich cookies for 99 cents,
Shurfresh turkeys for 69 cents a
pound, a 32-ounce jar of may-
onnaise for 99 cents and heavy


Western Porterhouse or T-Bone-
steaks for $2.99 a pound.
10 YEARS AGO
Excitement is mounting as 29
senior boys prepare to vie for
the coveted crown of Ms. Pro-
ject Graduation. The young
men will strut their stuff in the
frilliest of formal wear as they
try to raise funds for a safe and
alcohol-free grad night party.

A motorist who agreed ,to
give three young teen-age girls
a ride home found himself
pushed from his car and aban-
doned on a back road. R6port-
edly, he was flagged down in
the Wauchula Plaza parking lot.
He followed their directions to
SR 62 and then down some
rural roads he was unfamiliar
with. The girls began to hit him
and pushed him from the car.

Tickets are on sale now on a
first-come, first-served basis for
meals during the March 13 day-
long Cracker Heritage Festival
at Main Street Heritage Park in

fast in the American Legion

Boxing fans, please note that Saturday .night's fight, Edner
Cherry vs. Anthony Peterson, which was to have been on pay-per
view from Madison Square Garden in New York, has been can-
celled due to a training injury to Peterson. Cherry returned to
Wauchula late Monday, but hopes to have a reschedule match
shortly.
Now that football redistricting is settled, the Florida Athletic
Association has announced tentative redistricting in boys and girls
basketball, boys and girls soccer and girls volleyball.. All move
Hardee from 4A-10 down to 3A-11 in a four-team district which
also includes Sarasota Booker, Sarasota Cardinal Mooney and
DeSoto. Former district opponents Sebring and Palmetto remain in
S4A-10 and Avon Park moved to 3A-9.
The Wildcat basketball team finished up in the district semi-
finals, losing to eventual district champion Sebring. Hardee upset
Avon Park in the district quarterfinal and gave the Blue Streaks a
lot of trouble before succumbing. That bodes well for the future of
Hardee hoops. With the above-noted district changes, and losing
only two seniors to graduation, Hardee looks to a successful season
in 2009-10.
In the first round of regional competition, Sebring hosts
Lakeland Kathleen, while district runner-up Palmetto plays at
Bartow.
Girls varsity softball had a hard week, dealing with Sebring and
DeSoto, while the girls were distracted by the Miss Hardee County
Pageant and other Fair activities. As a result, they lost to Sebring
10-3 and went an extra inning before losing to DeSoto 12-8.
The JV girls also got their season going, beating Sebring but
losing to DeSoto. They looked good in their early outings.
Wildcat baseball is in the middle of its second pre-season tour:
nament. They lost to Lake Wales and Fort Meade in the Fort Meade
Classic last week, and also lost Monday night's opener in the:
Highlander Pre-Season Tourney against the host team.
Coach Steve Rewis took the opportunity to play some of his
regulars and insert reserves to get a good look at everyone. Several
did some good hitting. It promises to be an interesting season.
Hardee has its first home game next Friday, Feb. 27, against Avon
Park.
Tennis started Monday at Sebring, while track and boys.,
weightlifting open the firstweek of March, as does junior high girls'
volleyball. '.

What a great time to be in
Florida! Somebody told us that
the source of the cold snap was
discovered. It appears that
somebody left Michigan to
come down here and forgot to
close the door! Now we all
know. Not really, but that few
hours of cold did a lot of dam-
age to the various plantings
around the area.
Torrey Oaks held a clean-up
day on Feb. 12 with very posi-
tive results. Bushes were
trimmed, some were removed
and replaced with new ones,
and new mulch was added, with
a satisfying result of a cleaner
park. Another day is being
scheduled to finish up with
more plantings and more
mulch.

Varsity Softball Struggles


The Oasis RV News
By Georgianna Mills


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a strong pre-season
tourney, the Hardee girls soft-
ball team had to contend with
Miss Hardee County pageant
practices and other activities for
the upcoming Hardee County
Fair.
The girls lost to Sebring 10-3
last Tuesday and forced DeSoto
into an extra inning before los-
ing 12-8.
This week, the only games
are Friday night at Fort Meade.
The JV play at 5:30 and the var-
sity about 7:30. Next week
starts with a varsity-only visit
from Sarasota Booker on Tues-
day. There's a visit from Frost-
proof on Thursday and a trip
to Palmetto Friday. Both of
those are dual encounters, with
the JV at 5:30 and varsity about
7:30.
Against Sebring last week,
Hardee started well. After a
ground-out, a player tripled, but
was caught coming home on a
double play from second base
to home to first to retire the
side..
Hardee got on the board first.
In the home half of the first
frame, Chelsey Steedley walk-
- ed and scored. She stole second
land went to third on a Kristina
Garcia singled. With two down,
she raced home before a pop-
out ended the effort.
Sebring came even in the sec-
ond on a single and an error.
The Streaks took a 3-1 lead


with a Niki Helms homer and
Dample triple followed by a
fielder's choice.
The Lady Streaks added four
more runs in the fourth inning
on a hit batter and pair of errors.
Another Streak run was added
in the fifth and two more in the
sixth.
Hardee got its only other tal-
lies in the home half of the
sixth. With one away, Krystin
Robertson walked, coming
home on an Elvira Servin triple.
She raced home on an Amaris
fielder's choice out.
Against DeSoto at home on
Thursday night, the Lady
'Dawgs scored first with back-
to-back hits by Sorrel Hale and
Katie Hunter. Hardee answered
by taking a 2-1 edge. Steedley
singled and advanced on a
Chelsea Owens sacrifice: Gar-
cia doubled and came in on a
Servin singled.
Neither team scored in the
second inning, nor the top of the
third. Hardee threatened in the
bottom of the third Garcia sin-
gled to right field and Robert-
son followed suit. She was out
on a Servin fielder's choice and
Heather St. John's fielder's
choice caught Garcia.
In the top of the fourth a sin-
gle and double plated one
DeSoto runner to knot the score
2-2. Hardee went down in
order. DeSoto left one stranded
in the top of the fifth.
Hardee went back in front
with a pair of scores in the

home half of the fifth. Steedley
walked and moved along on an
Owens sacrifice. Garcia dou-
bled and scored on a Servin
RBI single to right field. It was
4-2.
That score continued to the
top of the seventh, when
DeSoto pushed across a pair of
runs on a walk, double and
error. Hardee didn't score in the
bottom of the seventh, usually
the last inning, and. the game
went on to the eighth.
DeSoto broke loose in the top
of the eighth, four scores on the
board on a combination of
walks, errors, a single and a
double. It was 8-4, in favor of
the visitors.
Hardee attempted to rally.
Servin led off with a double to
left field and St. Johns hit to
center. But a strikeout, fly-out
and groundout left the runners
stranded.
All three seniors, Owens,
Robertson and Powell were in
the Miss Hardee County pag-
eant. Among the others on the
team, juniors St. John, Steedley,
Halley Marshall, Paige Clark
and Garcia, sophs Garza and
Servin and freshman Courtney
Parks, several are showing ani-
mals during the fair, making
practices this week rather spot-

From The Heart
By David Kelly


SPORTS SMORGASBORD
If you are like me and are looking for things to do between
now and spring gobbler season, here are a couple of ideas.
Bass fishing should start kicking it into high gear with most of
the cold fronts out of the way and the new moon nearing. I think
snook season is in, too, I could look it up but I'm not going, so if
you go, check www.fwc.com first just to be sure of the require-
ments.
Another fun activity is taking in MLB spring training games.
However, many of you may be protesting Major League Baseball
because of the apparent rampant steroid use. Especially with Alex
Rodriguez confessing to using performance-enhancing supple-
ments for a three-year period. Rodriquez makes about $25 million
a year playing third base for the New York Yankees, not to mention
millions more in endorsements. It would take most of us 700 years
or more to make that kind of money.
If you can get beyond cheaters making millions, it is fun to go
to the ball park in the afternoon or early evening and watch some
baseball. Starting Feb. 25, you can go to Lakeland and watch the
Atlanta Braves play the Detroit Tigers at Joker Marchant Stadium.
Tickets range from $8 to $30 and sometimes there are specials.
You can call 866/66/TIGER for more information on Tiger
tickets The Braves play in Orlando, the Yankees in Tampa, the Red
Sox in Fort Myers, the Rays in Charlotte County, the World

Another great event coming up close by is the men's basket-
ball Southeastern Conference tournament taking place' in St.
Petersburg. It takes place Thursday to Sunday March 12-15. You
can get more information at www.secsports.com
Also, there is one of the greatest sporting events in the state is
the High School Final Four basketball tournament in Lakeland
every year. The girl's Final Four is Feb. 25-28.This year's boys
Final Four takes place March 4-7.
So, there are just a few ideas of how to fill your calendar. But
if you're like me, you'll be lucky to get to any of those. I've got big
plans on Saturdays, like coaching J.T.'s tee-ball games and watch-
ing Katherine win ribbons in horse shows.
Oh, and I also have this thing called a job. And I have an
anniversary coming up, too.
Have a great February and early March, and get out and enjoy
all Florida has to offer.

Young 'Cats Bow Out


CHAMBER DEDICATION


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Against all odds, the Hardee
boys basketball squad did well
in the district playoffs.
With only two seniors and
one junior on the squad, the
Wildcats upset the taller, heav-
ier Red Devils of Avon Park in
the 4A-10 district quarterfinals
and broke in front of eventual
district winner Sebring before
the Blue Streaks roared back to
win that semi-final garne and
down Palmetto in the champi-
onship game.
Overall, Head Coach Vance
Dickey was pleased with his
team's effort. "We did pretty
well. We were down just two
points at halftime, but in the
second half, they just beat us
with their height and rebound-
ing,"
Dickey only loses seniors
Postene Louisjeune and Lucas
Juarez. The only experienced
junior is Antjuan Jones, who
*had games of 27 and 17 points
in recent games. Junior Ivan
Fermin, completing his first
season in hoops on the JV
squad, will be another senior to


watch next season.
The 'Cats will have more op-
portunity next season as Hardee
moves from the 4A-10 district
down to 3-A 11. Sebring and
Palmetto will remain in 4A-10,
Avon Park moves to 3A-9.
Hardee will be with Sarasota
Booker, Sarasota Cardinal
Mooney and DeSoto in the
much smaller 3A-11.
Beside the juniors taking
leadership roles next season,
Hardee will have a strong con-
tingent of current sophs moving
into the starting lineups, includ-
ing Tre' Anderson, Carl
"Junior" Brown, Devonte
Hooks and Quinton Carlton,
who came up from the JV late
in the season.
Freshmen with a varsity sea-
son under their belts are Jajuan
Hooks, Keshun Rivers and
Andrew Hooks.
Other JV players this season
have been sophs Sammy Cis-
neros and Ricardo Fermin and
freshmen Deonte Evans, Mur-
rell Winter, Jesse Belcher, Jere-
my Rowe and Dalton Hewett.
In what turned out to be the
final game this season, Hardee


broke in front with a 21-16
advantage at the end of the first
period. Jones led with seven
points, Rivers and Devonte
Hooks each had six and Andrew
Hooks added a deuce.
Sebring bounced back in the
second, stanza with 25 points
while holding Hardee to just 18,
half of them on the trio of treys
by Anderson.
It was in the third period that
Sebring forged to the front to
stay, with Spencer Caton, Jake
Trussell and J.C. Howard hit-
ting the boards hard. It was a
nearly even fourth quarter, as
Robert Campbell hit 11 of his
14 points for Sebring and Jones
and Rivers kept Hardee in the
game with six and seven points
respectively.
Rivers finished as the game's
high scorer with 22 points,
some every period. Jones
chipped in with 17, Anderson
with a dozen, Devonte Hooks
with nine, Andrew Hooks with
seven and Louisjeune with an
uncharacteristic six. Usually
good scorer Jajuan Hooks was
held scoreless, as were Juarez,
Brown, Carlton and Fermin.

What one person thinks is worthless might be a masterpiece
to another.
People also hold different their values; one may prize honor*
above all other virtues, another may think loyalty is more important.
Values are strongly conditioned by upbringing; your house of
worship can play a vital role in shaping these values. Just as an
education about art can help one appreciate art, so can a religious
education prepare one to make moral choices.
Good morals are priceless. Provide your children with a
religious education. Attend the house of worship of your choice
this and every week.

JV Girls Divvy Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee JV softball team
got going last week with a win
over Sebring and loss to
DeSoto.
This week's only game is to-
morrow (Friday) at Fort Meade.
Next week, the varsity play
against Sarasota Booker on
Tuesday, and both the varsity
and JV play Thursday at home
against Frostproof and travel
Friday to Palmetto.
The junior Lady 'Cats opened
the season last Tuesday at home
against Sebring, winning 14-5.
Freshman Amanda McNabb
was on the mound, using a
strikeout, ground-out and fly-
out to retire the side and strand
the only Lady Streak runner.
Hardee took a 4-0 lead in the
home half of the first.Soph
Maria Anselmo was hit by a
pitch. With one away, Kayla
Powell took a walk. When


McNabb singled, Anselmo rac-
ed home. Desarea Newcomb
also singled, Cassidy Knight
walked and Hayley Price sin-
gled. Raquel Rodriguez also
walked, leaving the bases load-
ed when the third out occurred.
Sebring got on the board with
a pair of tallies in the top of the
second inning. Hardee added
three more on its side of the
scoreboard. Sierra Coronado
walked, and both Taylor Bolin
and McNabb singled. New-
comb singled and was left at
third after the first three crossed
home plate.
Sebring got its final three
runs in the third frame, with
doubles by Carlee Hill and Kim
Perez doing the job. Hardee
added another pair of scores.
Rodriguez walked, stole second
and raced home on a Coronado
hit. She came home on a Bolin
hit. It was 9-5.
Hardee wasn't done yet,


adding a final five runs in the
home half of the fourth. New-
comb singled, stole second and
was out trying to come hope.
Knight and. Price both walked
and Rodriguez singled. Ansel-
mo and Coronado both walked.
A Powell triple plated the last
two and made the final score
14-5.
It was a different story on
Thursday night against DeSoto.
Neither team scored in the'first
or second innings. DeSoto had a
big third inning with five run-
ners crossing home plate. Tw6
more came home in the fourth
and a final runner' scored in the
top of the fifth.
Hardee got its only tallies in
the. home half of the fifth, and
final, inning. Anselmo opened it
with a triple. With one away ,
Price walked. With two away
Bolin tripled. She rode home on
a Newcomb single before the
final out of the game.


Letter To The Public


March 24 Election Will


Help Hardee School System


Dear Hardee County Citizens:
The State of Florida is expe-
riencing some of the worst eco-
nomic times since the Great De-
pression. As the economy con-
tinues to deteriorate and state-
wide tax collections dwindle
downward, the Hardee County
School Board has had to con-
stantly cut the budget deeper
and deeper. During the 2007-08
school year, the state reduced
Hardee County School Board's
operating funding by $968,453.
This school year, the state
reduced per student funding so,
our overall funding decreased
by another $592,032. In Jan-
uary 2009, the Legislature held
a special session to trim the
state's budget. Hardee County
Schools' budget was reduced by
another $693,916 as result of
the Special Session cuts.
In 2009-10, the economy is
expected to get worse before it
gets any better. State revenues


are forecast to be $6 billion dol-
lars less than previously expect-
ed. As a result of these lower
revenues, the Hardee County
Schools funding for 2009-10
may be reduced by another $3
,million dollars.
A special election for tax
millage flexibility (no new
taxes) will be held in Hardee
County on March 24, 2009.
Such tax millage flexibility will
help, but it will not be enough
by itself to make up for state's
funding cuts. A vote of yes on
March 24 will enable Hardee
Schools to transfer some exist-
ing taxes from capital outlay to
operations. This will help us
partially offset some of the
state's cuts.
I bring you this news not to
depress you, but to inform you
ab ut the financial situation that
Hardee Schools are facing. The
district and the employees have
made many sacrifices in order


to minimize direct effects on
the programs and students of
this county.
We are very grateful for the
dedicated employees who com-
mit themselves each day to pro-
viding the highest quality edu-
cation possible to our students.
Working together, we can solve
any problem. Please mark
March 24 on your calendar and
vote yes.
