By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A daycare center owner vol-
untarily surrendered her license
last month in the midst of court
proceedings to shut her down.
The state Department of
Children & Families filed a
petition in Hardee Circuit Court
seeking to close the child-care
center, operated by Sandra
Velasquez on Cliett Avenue in
Bowling Green after allegedly
finding repeated safety viola-
tions there.
The department withdrew its
petition after Velasquez turned
in her license.
The action came after routine
inspections conducted by DCF
,on Feb. 3, 5 and 6.
On Feb. 3, the inspector
found a space heater in the
bathroom, where children could
reach it. Velasquez was advised
the heater could not be within
the reach of the children in her

Persistence is important, believed American President Calvin
Coolidge.
He wrote, "Nothing in the world can take the place of persis-
tence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful
men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a
proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan
'Press on' has solved and will solve the problems of the human
race."

Son Jonathan and I recently spent a weekend at a Back To
College event at the University of Florida.
We saw the five national championship crystal trophies in
football and basketball. A sign in the football trophy room said,
"Individual fire fuels team success."
One UF alumnus named Terri has a friend who dates new
Tampa Bay Bucs head coach Raheem Morris. The Bucs are retool-
ing or rebuilding or refining for the 2009 season. The 2008 season
ended with four straight losses to finish at 9-7.

We toured a large UF ag research center in the Citra area for
food crops such as potatoes, blueberries, corn, peanuts and citrus.
We saw a UF basketball game, a baseball game and part of a
men's tennis match. The UF Law College dean showed off his
piano playing skill.
UF President Bernie Machen is strong against underage drink-
ing and the abuse of alcohol.

To save money the Florida Legislature could stop the DROP
program which allows many public employees to work five years
and accrue big retirement at the same time, known as "double dip-
ping." Some public workers can collect a paycheck and two gov-
ernment pensions, called "triple dipping." The practice is legal.
Some workers.do not retire after the five-year DROP ends. By
law they can take off 30 days and return to.the same job with the
same salary and a pension. DROP stands for Deferred Retirement
Option Program, allowing government workers to set their retire-
ment date five'years in advance. While they continue working, pen-
sion checks accumulate monthly for a lump-sum payment upon the
employee's retirement.

Lindsey Tanner of The Associated Press reports a study of
about a half million older men and women shows evidence that
diets rich in calcium help prevent some cancers. Real foods, not
calcium tablets, are best.
Hardee County produces a lot of milk. Therefore such calci-
um-rich products as milk, cheese, ice cream, butter and yogurt help
prevent cancer as well as build strong bones, etc.
The study showed the people who had calcium-rich diets were
healthier and had fewer cases of cancer of the colon, esophagus,
head and neck.
I have noticed as a general rule how healthy the young people
are who grew up in dairy families such as the Nickersons.

I was amazed last week at the Rotary club meeting to see how
many pushups were done by Lavon Cobb and Joe Jones. Cobb can
do one-handed pushups.
I was also amazed at the local YMCA this week to see the
strenuous workouts of Dr. Bob Helveston, Robert Krahl and Joe
Davis Sr.

About 20,000 participated in last weekend's annual Gasparilla
Distance Classic in Tampa. There was a marathon, half-marathon,
15-K run and 5-K Run/Walk.
Hardee County participants included marathon, Wesley
Mercer, 4 hours, 40 minutes, 10 seconds; 15-K, Charlie Potter,
1:27:27; and 5-K, Bonnie Potter, 53:31, W.H. Harward Jr., 50:49,
Jonathan Kelly, 29:10, and Jim Kelly, 47:37.
A marathon is 26.2 miles, a 15-K is 9.3 miles, and a 5-K is 3.1
miles. K stands for kilometer.
In the 5-K I passed three people who had fallen out and were
receiving medical treatment. The city of Tampa and Publix were
prime sponsors. There was plenty of water, Gatorade, bananas and
assorted snacks for participants.

This past week the price of regular unleaded gasoline in
Hardee increased four cents to $1.89.

The weather has continued to be very dry with a few days of
cool weather. The county and state need a lot of rain.

Spring appears to be around the corner as oak trees are bloom-
ing and putting out young leaves, citrus trees are forming blooms
and cherry bushes are blooming.
This.has been an unusually cold winter, with several freezes
Hardee had gone a number of years without a significant freeze.

A lot of oranges are being harvested, with many trucks and
loaded fruit trailers traveling the roads.

The annual Pioneer Park Days in Zolfo Springs are underway
There is something for everyone there.


Platt and former members
Tanya Royal and. Gina Neu-
hofer, Management Information
Services Department worker
Neda Cobb, and bus drivers
Susie Moore and Teresa
Brandeberry.
Daggett, too, concluded
Tuesday's testimony. Wednes-
day was set aside for testimony
from former deputy superinten-
dent Rocky Kitchens and for-
mer superintendent Dennis
Jones. .

DICK DAGGETT
Lori Benton of the law firm
Ford & Harrison opened the
School Board's case by calling
Daggett to testify.
She asked if he would agree
that director of transportation is
a position of trust, and if an
employer should be able to trust
its employees.
She asked if manipulating
documents was dishonest and
cause for termination.
"Have you been friends with
Rocky Kitchens for 30 years,
and at one time did you have
some type of business venture
together?" Benton inquired.
Daggett admitted the friend-
ship, and said the business they
shared was sold "years ago."
Then she asked if Daggett
had been friends with Jones for
20 years. He said that he had.
"Isn't it true you confided in
Mr. Kitchens and Mr. Jones?
You shared confidences? Isn't it
true Mr. Jones lied for you?" the
lawyer asked.
"I don't know if he did,"
Daggett responded.
Benton went on to say that in
a March 2008 report to Platt
about his investigation into the
author of the blog, he said he
had no conclusive evidence and
that, in fact, four possible
names had been suggested.
"You told him you were the
author of the blog, didn't you,
before he wrote the report?" she
asked.
"Yes, outside the workplace I
told him," Daggett said, adding,
"I was careful to keep this sepa-
rate."
She asked if he had been
looking for a job since his ter-
mination, if he was told by
Kitchens of the employee inter-
views she was conducting at the
bus garage, if he had cleaned
6-' "his'" ffice"'ifd if he had
shredded documents there.
"A person who deliberately
intimidates employees should-
n't be in a position of authority,
correct?" Benton asked.
"No, I wouldn't think so," he
said.
As her questioning ended,
Daggett's attorney, Robert
McKee of Kelly & McKee,
chose not to cross-examine him
at that time.

JAN PLATT
Platt's testimony began with
her explanation of the June 26
vote on the superintendent's
recommendation for renewal of
the annual contracts for all the

district's principals, assistant
principals and directors.
Traditionally, the more than
two dozen names were consid-
ered all at once, in a single yea
or nay vote. This time, however,
Platt has asked to vote on the
directors one at a time.
"I knew I could not vote 'yes'
on Mr. Daggett and do my job,"
she explained. She said she had
not discussed her plan with any
other board member.
Platt said she could not
approve Daggett because she
"had been confronted by a lot of
people, complaints, that there
had been some intimidating,
harassing." In fact, she said, she
began a running list of com-
plaints against Daggett in "mid
to late 2006."
Daggett was named director
of transportation in 2003.
Asked why she compiled a
list, Platt answered, "Well, you
watch someone get away with
things and employees are afraid
to come to anyone because they
are afraid they will lose their
jobs, even people in other
departments . and because
you have to have just cause (to
terminate him)."
Platt said when she told Jones
of a specific complaint "he said
he would take care of it, but he
never came back to me with
what he did and Teresa
Brandeberry (the employee
who complained) said nothing
changed."
Asked by Benton why she
did not go to Kitchens, Platt
said, "Because they were even
closer. It's like family, some-
times you don't see what others
are doing because they're so
close to you."
Her list of complaints was
read: Daggett had his own vehi-
cle serviced at the bus garage,
an employee on disciplinary
action was given pay for extra
trips, employees were accused
of altering records, substitutes
were drawing checks without
driving, workers were allowed
personal trips in a district van,
trick calls were placed to dri-
vers to see if they would answer
their cell phones when they
were not supposed to, drivers
were allowed to transport their
own underage children on their
buses, an employee was
allowed to take he~family on a
business trip at district expense,
drivers were intimidated, pref-
erential treatment was given to
some young female drivers, and
workers in the MIS Department
were told to "shut up" when
they complained about the han-
dling of the hiring of a new
food service director.
Benton had Platt explain that
she OK'ed Daggett in 2007 but
not 2008 because she did not
"feel" she had "enough evi-
dence" until then.
Platt said she later agreed to
Daggett's continued employ-
ment as a swim coach because
her reservations only dealt with
his role as the boss of 45-50
employees at the bus garage.
She also denied considering
the unflattering blog he wrote
about the board in general and
her in particular during insur-
ance talks.
McKee then cross-examined
Platt for a full 50 minutes.
He asked if Platt went to
Kitchens or Jones with the alle-
gation from the three women in
the MIS Department that
Daggett had threatened them
when they complained that the
food-service directorship was
being improperly handled in
order to give the job to a friend
of Kitchens.
"No, sir, I did not," she said.
"I had already gone to Mr.
Jones previously about an em-
ployee and he didn't do any-
thing because he was better
friends with Mr. Daggett than
with the employee."
"You assumed it was true
without hearing the other side
of the story? Then you relied on
it to make your decision'?" he
asked.
"Yes, I did, I assumed it was
true," Platt answered.
McKee hammered on that
point, repeatedly asking Platt
about her list, if she checked out
any of the allegations on it and


The Associated Press and Lakeland Ledger has reported
f Agrium, a Canada-based fertilizer maker and retailer, has made an
unsolicited offer to acquire CF Industries for $3.6 billion in cash
and stock to expand its fertilizer business. This offer came about 30
- days after CF offered $2.1 billion to buy Iowa-based Terra
s Industries in an all-stock transaction.
Terra's board rejected CF's offer, saying the bid was too low.
. Agrium said its bid for CF is based on CF dropping its pursuit of
Terra. Agrium offered CF shareholders $72 or $76 a share. Each
CF share would be swapped for $31.70 cash plus one share of
d Agrium.
CF is a major phosphate company with over 20,000 acres in
Hardee County and a benefication plant at Fort Green. A response
i. from CF on the Agrium offer was not available at press time

if, in fact, the complaints began against Daggett, was on the

blog.
"You weren't out trying to
find things, were you?" he chal-
lenged.
"No, sir, I swear on the
Bible," she said.
"Did you ever talk to the per-
son being accused?" he
inquired.
"No, sir, because I wouldn't
know that I would get the
truth," she replied.
Nor did she speak to
Kitchens or Jones about her list.
"And you know better than
all these other people?" McKee
asked.
Platt said Kitchens and Jones
were "too close" to Daggett.
McKee said Platt listed com-
plaints and "relied on them as
fact" without ever talking with
Daggett. "Is that fair to Mr.
Daggett?" he asked.
"Maybe, maybe not," she
said.
Then McKee returned to
questioning about the blog, ask-
ing if she "were bound and
determined to find out who the
author of the blog was?" He
also asked if she filed an Ethics
Commission complaint against
Daggett.

TANYA ROYAL
Royal, who was chairman of
the board when the vote was
taken and who broke the 2-2 tie
with her "no" vote, was ques-
tioned the least. She was in the
witness chair for a total of 20
minutes.
She said she knew of the
intimidation complaint lodged
by the three MIS Department
employees.
"They called me in to talk
about it," Royal said. "He bul-
lied them; they were very upset.
He told them to keep quiet and
he could get them more money,
that it was all about money."
She said though that hap-
pened in the fall of 2006, she
voted for Daggett's renewal in
the summer of 2007 because
she did not know that a board
member could ask to have the
administrators voted on individ-
ually, rather than as a group.
"It stayed with me," she
added. "I was so upset one of
our directors would do that."
Benton asked if she talked
with Daggett's supervisor,
Kitchens, about the incident.
"No, because I might as well
be talking to Mr. Daggett," she
replied. Ditto with Jones, she
added.
Royal said the blog did not
enter into her decision at all.
McKee asked, in cross-exam-
ination, if she ever investigated
the women's complaint.
"Because they were upset, it
was true?" he questioned.
"I believed it was true,"
Royal said.

Her testimony echoed that of
Platt and Royal, as it recounted
similar experiences in receiving
complaints from employees of
the bus garage and the MIS
Department.
"I believed he engaged in
inappropriate, intimidating,.bul-
lying, harassing behavior inap-
propriate to a director, unbe-
coming a director," Neuhofer
said in explaining her "no" vote.
She said, "Because of these
things, he should not be in the
administrative role he was in."
She, too, said Jones did noth-
ing and could not "be objective"
because of his friendship with
Daggett.
Neuhofer added that she did
go to the president of the
Hardee Education Associ-
ation/United, Selden Spencer,
to ask if he had received any
complaints against Daggett.
"He said, 'Oh, I love Dick,
he's good for business. I've had
more people sign up for the
union from the bus garage than
any other department,' she
recalled.
Neuhofer said, under ques-
tioning by Benton, that she did
not know who the author of the
blog was when she cast her vote
in June of 2008 not to renew
Daggett.
McKee took his turn with
questions, asking again why she
did not go to Jones or Daggett
with her concerns. "Ma'am, you
understand there are two sides
to a story? To be fair, you
should hear Mr. Daggett's
side?" he asked.
'"That was not my role," she
responded. She went on to

cy while the superintendent
directs the work of the employ-

"Mr. Jones, it was apparent,
we not going to take any action
and the School Board had to do
something," Neuhofer said.
"You would end his 30-year
career without hearing his
side?" McKee asked.
"I heard the complaints and
they were consistent over a
period of three years," she
replied.
As the cross-examination
concluded, ..Jydge, Kilbride
ask his owntet of questions
HI-I"quirei: "bout the proce-
dure used to take' the vote,
asked if there were any discus-
sion before the vote and asked
if she was aware the board
could not reject the superinten-
dent's recommendation for
renewal "except for good
cause?"
Neuhofer said she knew that.
Kilbride then asked, "Was
there any discussion of what
'good cause' is?"
Neuhofer responded, "No."
With that, testimony was sus-
pended. For coverage of testi-
mony when the hearing recon-
vened, see next week's edition.

care.
But again on Feb. 6, the
heater was accessible to chil-
dren, the DCF said. Further, it
said Velasquez had the gas on
her stove turned on, and a
strong smell of gas was detect-
ed in the house.
DCF called Hardee Fire-
Rescue, which evacuated the
home "for fear of an explosion,"


the petition alleged, and also
turned off the outside gas tank.
The state went on to allege
that Velasquez was paying an
unscreened and unlicensed
woman to transport 10 children
as part of Velasquez's after-
school care program. Moreover,
she allowed the woman to care
for the youngsters in her own
home.

And, the DCF continued, the
vehicle used to transport the
children had a broken window
and did not have "the proper
number of working seatbelts."
Finally, the .state claimed
Velasquez was being paid for
the care of 11 children through
the Early Childhood Coalition
even though she was licensed to
care for only six. On Feb. 3, the
DCF said, eight children were
there, violating State Statutes
for the adult-to-child ratio.

Nutrition

Notes
Q: Does health insurance
cover nutrition counseling
during cancer treatment?
A: Nutrition counseling is a
recommended part of cancer
treatment. Maintaining good
nutritional status and a healthy
weight is important for patients
undergoing cancer treatment
and may help to increase the
success of their therapy. In fact,
studies show that patients who
receive appropriate nutritional
support early on are more likely
to complete a course of uninter-
rupted radiation therapy, have
fewer, and shorter unplanned
hospital admissions and experi-
ence fewer side effects of cer-
tain treatments.
Although Medicare does not
currently pay for nutrition
counseling related to cancer
treatment, private insurance
companies often do. Moreover,
many treatment facilities, rec-
ognizing the important role
nutrition plays in cancer treat-
ment, have begun to include
nutrition services as part of
their care package at no addi-
tional cost to the patient. If

nutrition counseling is not cur-
rently covered by your insur-
ance provider, be sure to ask if
your treatment facility provides
any services.
Q: How important is
breakfast for weight control?
A: Skipping your morning
meal may seem like a logical
way to cut calories and help
with weight control; however,
this is not usually the case.
Although the research is limit-
ed, studies link the practice of
frequently skipping breakfast
with having a higher body mass
index (BMI), a measure of
overweight. This is not to sug-
gest that avoiding, breakfast
causes overweight. Perhaps the
association exists because peo-
ple who are already overweight
skip meals as a weight-loss tac-
tic.
Either way, skipping a morn-
ing meal usually spells trouble
for dieters. People who avoid
breakfast are more likely to
snack impulsively and tend to
eat more throughout the rest of
the day. On the other hand, eat-
ing a good, nutritionally bal-
anced breakfast will energize
you and satisfy hunger through
the morning. Start the day with
whole-grain bread or cereal,
fruits or vegetables and a mod-
est amount of protein. Good
protein sources include peanut
butter, low-fat yogurt, nuts and
eggs or egg whites. As an added
bonus, eating a healthy break-
fast rich in vegetables, fruit and
whole grains will also provide
antioxidants, vitamins and phy-
tochemicals that may help pro-
tect you against cancer and
heart disease.
q: When duck meat is
served pink, is it safe to eat?
A: As with other meat and
poultry, the safety depends on
whether it has reached a high
enough temperature during.
cooking. Color is not an indica-


tor of "doneness" in duck oi in
other poultry or meat. When
chicken is cooked, for example,
it is possible for the pink aolor
to disappear before the safe
temperature has been reached.
Duckling, however, has darker
meat and is usually still 'slightly
pink in the center when proper-
ly cooked to an internal temper-
ature of 165 degrees.*
Q: I know brown rice is
more 'nutritious than white
rice, but is that true of the
quick-cooking versions, too?
A: Fortunately, yes. While
the cooking time required for
regular brown rice is not a prob-
lem when preparing casseroles
or other dishes with longer
cooking times, sometimes you
want rice that can be prepared
quickly. With advances in food
technology, now you don't need
to sacrifice nutrition to save
time. Brown rice that is com-
pletely or partially precooked is
currently available in frozen,
boxed and ready to microwave
varieties (or dehydrated and
ready to cook on the stove) and
can be prepared in 2 to 15 min-
utes. Whole-grain brown rice
-even quick cooking versions
- retains the complete rice
grain, which supplies more
fiber, vitamins B-6 and E, sele-
nium (an antioxidant mineral)
and health-promoting phyto-
chemicals. When purchasing,
be sure to avoid products that
are seasoned with salt-based
flavorings, as this can raise the
normally low-sodium content
of rice significantly. If the high-
er price tag of quick-cook
brown rice has you concerned,
one alternative is to cook regu-
lar brown rice yourself and then
freeze it in freezer bags. You
might have to thump the bag on
the counter to loosen it up a lit-
tle, but you'll be able to remove
whatever amount you want to
reheat in the microwave.

JVs Jolt Avon Park 6-3 Lady 'Cats Take 2 Of 3


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In its only game last week,
the Hardee JV baseball squad
scored well.
Although the Avon Park
jufiior Red Devils tried to rally,
Hardee stayed ahead and claim-
ed the 6-3 win in the early game
of a double-header. The varsity
teams battled in the late game.
This week, the junior 'Cats
only game was at home Tues-
day against Fort Meade, a team
Hardee lost to in the season
opener. Next week's games are
Thursday at Lake Placid and
Friday at Palmetto.
Freshman Murrell Winter had
a good outing against Avon
Park on Friday, pitching three
innings and allowing only two
runs. Brandon Holton came on
in the sixth inning and finished
out the game,, giving up only
one run.
Winter opened with a


ground-out and strikeout before
giving up a hit and a walk. With
another groundout, the side was
retired and twQ runners left on
base.
Hardee got on the board in
the home half of the first. With
one down, freshman Dawson
Crawford singled and soph
Lincoln Saunders followed with
another hit. Both crossed home
plate on a long Justin Bromley
hit. Hardee led 2-0.
The junior Devils got one of
the runs back in the top of the
second with a hit, an error and
another hit. Hardee left Justin
Knight aboard after he had
taken a walk.
It was three up, three down in
the top of the third. Hardee
picked up an insurance run
when Saunders singled and
scored. Bromley singled and
Jeremy Rowe walked, leaving
runners on the corners when the
third out occurred.


Avon Park tried to come back
in the top of the fourth, but a
strikeout and pair of singles
yielded only one run, making it,
a 3-2 ball game.
Hardee forged ahead even'
more with a three-run bat-
around in the bottom of the
fourth. Knight walked, Craw-
ford -.agled and Saunders
walked, Holton doubled and
Mikey Retana singled. Before
the dust settled, it was'a 6-2
game.
The game tottered along until
the top of the seventh. Hardee
had a solid hit from Carter
Lambert in the fifth inning, but
he was stranded. Neither team
scored in the sixth.
Avon Park had one last
chance in the top of the seventh
and put one run on the board on
three hits, making the final
score 6-3.


Little Charlie Creek RV News
By Linda Snowden & Jean Sian


There;was lot of activity in
the park this last week. On
Saturday we had the annual pig
roast, with most of the residents
attending. Wayne and Cindy
Parrish provided a wonderful
meal and a fun evening for all
of us.:
Winner that day for the raffle
for the $100 certificate toward

squad picked up a pair of wins
last week.
The varsity girls won at home
over Sarasota Booker, lost at

gle to right center field.
In turn, Hardee sent 11 bat-
ters to the plate, bringing five of
them home. With one away,
Chelsea Owens drew a walk.
Elvira Servin followed with one
of her three hits for the evening,
this one to center field. Kristina
Garcia was hit by a pitch and
Krystin Robertson drew a walk.
Courtney Parks followed suit.
When Heather St. John singled,
runners began coming across
home plate.
Miranda Powell kept it going,
as did Sabrina Hernandez. Back
to the start of the lineup for a
Chelsey Steedley hit before the
final out. Owens, Servin, Gar-
cia, Robertson and St. John all
crossed home plate, giving
Hardee a 5-1 lead
Powell and Halley Marshall
kept Booker in check while
Hardee continued to score. In
the second inning, the 'Cats
scored four more times. Servin,
Garcia, Robertson and Parks all
hit well and scored on a triple
from the bat of Steedley.

dle and another single scored
three runs before a ground-out
ended the game and Hardee

'Cats Nip Devils 5-4


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"The whole atmosphere was
exciting.- There was a big
crowd. It's a great way to start
off the season at home."
Head coach Steve Rewis was
obviously pleased with Friday
night's nine-inning win over
Avon Park. "If we get that same
crowd every Friday night, we'll
be tough," he said.
The Wildcats continue at
home for three more games.
They greet Fort Meade tonight
(Thursday) and Sarasota Book-
er tomorrow. Next Friday,
March 13, the visitor is
Palmetto.
BRADEN RIVER 12,
HARDEE 5
"We swung our bats better.
Michael Dixon pitched well.
We had some costly errors and
basically ran out of steam,"
summed up Rewis of last
Tuesday's season opener at
Braden River.
Both teams were three up,
three down in the first inning.
Hardee repeated that in the sec-
ond stanza, but the Pirates
broke loose for an 11-batter
round that put five runs on the
board on five hits and two
errors.
Hardee bounced back in the
top of the third to cut the lead to
5-4. Freshman Wintz Terrell
started it when he was hit by a
Pitch. Senior Adam Cartwright
followed it with a.single and
both junior Carson Davis and
senior Brek McClenithan work-
ed for a walk. The four rounded
the bases on a Ben Krause sac-


rifice and Scott Donaldson dou-
ble.
Braden River batters went
down in order.in the home half
of the third. In the top of the
fourth Conner Davis doubled
but was stranded there. The
Pirates added three runs on
walks and errors.
Again, Hardee tried to rally.
Carson Davis singled4nd raced
home on a McClenithan sacri-
fice. Krause was safe on an
error but consecutive outs
ended the threat.
Braden River added a trio of
tallies in the bottom of the fifth
on a double and pair of singles.
A single by junior Dalton Farr
was Hardee's only bright spot
in the top of the sixth and
Braden River added its final run
on a pair of singles and a walk.
In the top of the seventh, a
McClenithan single was
Hardee's only hope.
HARDEE 5,
AVON PARK 4
"Kyle (Ward) pitched well.
We had good defense and some
key hits. Coach (Brian) Alexy
did good pitch calling for Kyle
and Coach (David) Beumel pre-
pared the team well," said
Rewis.
Sophomore Ward allowed
only one hit in the top of the
first. In the home half of the
inning, McClenithan walked
and rounded the bases, coming
home on a Donaldson sacrifice
fly to right field.
It was a repeat in the top of
the second, allowing only one
Red Devil to get on base with a
hit. However, Hardee went


down in order.
Avon Park got on the board in
a big way in the top of the third'
with a pair of singles and Luke
Jackson three-run homer, taking
a 3-1 advantage.
It wasn't until the home half
of the fourth that Haidee fought
back. Donaldson was safe on a
muff by the second sacker and
worked his way home on a sac-
rifice by soph Kalan Royal. It
was 3-2.
Avon Park immediately got
that run back in the top of the
fifth on a single, walk and
steals. It was 4-2.
The game rocked along to the
bottom of the seventh, when
Ward walked and Cartwright
singled and both crossed home
plate. Dixon was safe on an
error and McClenithan singled
to help his teammates tie the
score 4-4.
Neither team was able to
score in the eighth inning. In the
ninth, an error allowed one Red
Devil to get on base.
But, in the exciting home half
of the ninth, Hardee won the
game. After Dixon was out on a
close play at first, McClenithan
singled and raced around the
bases on a Krause hit to cross
home plate ahead of the throw.
Ward had faced 39 batters in
nine inning, allowing four runsi
and seven hits but striking out
10 and giving up only one walk.
Hardee had 29 batters, with
nine striking out and three tak-
ing a walk.
"If we have that same crowd
at home every Friday night, it
will be tough for our oppo-
nents," concluded Rewis.

Nutrition Notes


Q: How does cream cheese
rank as a source of calcium
and protein?
At Unlike other types of
cheese, cream cheese is not a
good source of these important
nutrients. Two tablespoons (one
ounce) of cream cheese sup-
plies only about 28 milligrams
(mg) of calcium and less than 2
grams of protein. That's much
less than the amount found in
an ounce of most hard cheeses
(such as Cheddar or Swiss),
which typically provide about
200 mg of calcium and 7 grams.
of protein.
Fat-free and reduced-fat
cream cheese products are more
concentrated, but are still not
considered good sources of
these nutrients. If you want to
use cream cheese occasionally,
choose a reduced-fat type to
avoid a big load of saturated fat
and treat it as a condiment, not
a source of nutrition.
Q: Do the new exercise
guidelines recommend that all
Americans take up weight
lifting?
A: Not exactly. The latest
recommendations (including
the 2008 Physical Activity
Guidelines for Americans and
the 2007 recommendations of
the American College of Sports
Medicine (ACSM) and Ameri-
can Heart Association) both
agree that muscle strengthening
activities benefit most people.
They recommend performing
8 to 10 different strength train-
ing exercises at a moderate- or
high-intensity level at least two
days a week. This should
include exercises for the upper
and lower legs, hips, back,
chest, shoulders, abdomen and
arms.
Strength-training does not
have to mean weight-lifting,
however. The goal can also be
accomplished with resistance
bands, calisthenics that push
against body weight (such as
push-ups, pull-ups and sit-ups),
or even yard work with heavy
digging and lifting. Appropriate
muscle-strengthening activities
for children include those listed
above as well as some types of
recreational play like climbing
on playground equipment and
:.trees or playing games like tug-
Sof-war.
According to the ACSM,
.strength training is especially
important for adults over 65, so
they should aim for two to three
sessions each week. The new
federal guidelines suggest that
older adults who are unable to
follow the general adult guide-
lines should be as active as their
physical condition allows.
Q: What is meant by the
term "free range chicken"?
A: Although this term con-
jures images of birds roaming
an open barnyard all day, that's
not necessarily what you're
buying. According to the U.S.
Department of Agriculture
(USDA), free range chickens
are defined as birds that have
any access to the outside, per-
haps for just a few minutes a
day. The term has no bearing on
what the chicken is fed, what
medications it receives or the
amount of living space it has. In'
practical terms, the claim does-
n't mean much in the U.S.
Q: How accurate are scales
that claim to measure body
'fat percentage?
A: These scales merely esti-
mate body fat by measuring
how much resistance your body
provides to a tiny electrical cur-
rent. The scales rely on bioelec-
tric impedance analysis (BIA),

ipants for four months, has

nies make partially whole-grain
pastas. At the very least, choos-
ing these is a step in the right
direction.
Q: Can you help me plan a
balanced meal with choices
from a salad bar?
A: Salad bars are a terrific
way to help people make veg-
etables and fruits a large part of
meals, a practice recommended
by organizations like the
American Institute for Cancer
Research. Whether or not salad
bars can supply a nutritionally
complete meal depends on how
they are stocked. Besides veg-
etables and fruits, salad bars
usually ..offer rolls, breadsticks
or crackers for complex carbo-
hydrates; choose whole-grain
versions when available.
Also make sure to include
enough protein. Good sources
include any one of the follow-
ing (or smaller portions of sev-
eral): a half-cup of kidney or
garbanzo beans, turkey, tuna,
chopped hardboiled egg or
meat; one-third cup of nuts or
sunflower seeds; or a cup of
bean or lentil soup. If you are
eating at the salad bar as a strat-
egy to control weight, a note of
caution: not everything on a
salad bar is low-calorie. The fat
and calories from regular salad
dressing and deli-style salads
loaded with mayonnaise or oily
marinades can add up quickly.
Q: I read that phosphorus
works together with calcium
to make strong bones. What
should I eat to make sure I get
enough phosphorus?.
A: Phosphorus is a mineral
essential not ,only for bone
structure, but also for cell struc-
ture and proper function of
essential enzymes. It is widely
distributed in many foods, espe-
cially dairy products, fish,
meat, poultry, eggs, nuts, whole
grains and legumes. Food addi-
tives in soft drinks and bakery
products add even more. So
don't worry about getting
enough phosphorus, is so
widespread in our food supply
that a deficiency is very unusu-
al.


I guess the biggest news right now is the success of baseball and
softball on Friday night.
The Hardee varsity and junior varsity boys teams stole a dou-
ble-heqder at home against Avon Park on Friday evening. The JV
won 6-3 and the varsity took nine innings for a come-from-behind
5-4 win. Coach Steve Rewis was elated at the good turnout and
hopes for it to continue at future home games. The next one is.
tonight (Thursday) when Fort Meade visits and tomorrow when the
guest is Sarasota Booker. Palmettto comes in on March 1-3.
Meanwhile, Hardee girls hung on for a 7-6 win at Palmetto on
Friday night after the JV girls had won 8-1. The girls were home on
Monday but travel to Mulberry tomorrow night and go to DeSoto
next Friday evening.

Speaking of victories, or near victories, the girls tennis team
lost a heartbreaker at Booker last Thursday. With the.match tied 3-
3, it came down to the second doubles to decide the winner. Kayla
Woods and Kate Krause held the destiny of the team in their hands
and did everything they could to win. The proset match was knot-
ted at 8-8. For the final point, game by game was even, until
Booker finally won 8-6 for the game, set and match points.

The Minors, Machine Pitch and Tee-Ball teams are winding
down their seasons, but Majors and Juniors will be starting soon.
Also, Men's Church League softball is about to get started, too.
Boys weightlifting, track and field, and junior high volleyball
are all in the starting stages but there should be news coming soon.

For those interested in football, the spring game is at Lake
Wales on May 29.

If golf is your passion, sign up as soon as you can for the first
annual Resthaven Tournament on April 4 at Torrey Oaks Golf
Resort. You can get tickets at the course or at Resthaven.
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

Torrey Oaks RV News
By Jean Mulder


GOLF SCRAMBLE
The golf scrambles are still
very active, with a large number
of little white ball chasers par-
ticipating.
Here are the results of the
most recent nine-hole scramble
held on Feb. 24: The first-place
team with a score of three und-
er par 34 consisted of Marty
Hanley, Darrell Bier and Sylvia
Kaldeway.
Four teams tied for second
place with one under 35: Team
A, Bill Pinkley, Lee Carter,
Richard Rivaud and Nick Hui-
zinga; Team B, Ron Britt,
Tene Tessier, Bill Tucker and
Dick Oslund; Team C, Larry
McGarr, Morris Barry, Mike
Budnick and Jan Tucker; and
Team D, Tom Walsh, David
Cotter, Dale Daniel and Kyle
Schierling.

LOBSTER DINNER
Again, 30 lobster aficionados
sat down to a tasty seafood din-
ner. We knew that they were all
happy because there was butter
dripping off all of their chins!
Clair and Evelyn Boudreau
coordinated the team of culi-
nary artists as they prepared an
assortment of dishes from the
sea.
This has became a popular
event, which I am sure will
find its place on Torrey Oaks'
monthly schedule next year
more often.

TALENT TIME
The first-ever follies fol-


lowed the weekly potluck, and
from the audience applause and
smiles, it was a huge success.
This was not a talent contest but
rather a fun show from the rank
amateurs, featuring musical
selections, line dancing, short
skits and instrumentalists.
The program began with the
singing of "The Star Spangled
Banner" by Jean Mulder as
well as "O Canada" by Evelyn
Boudreau.
Also included was "Alex-
ander's Ragtime Band" by Ron
Walker, Meredith Walker play-
ing a boomba, and "Santa
Baby" by Nina Ray, which was
followed by "Leroy the Red-
neck Reindeer" sung by a full-
time Santa. There were also
numbers which were a spoof on
well-known musical pieces,
such as "Here Comes Meno-
pause" by Santa, '"Side by
Side" by me and "Little Things
Mean a Lot" by Sharon and Lee
Carter.
Another beautiful number
sung in both French and
English is simply called "The
French Song," which was sung
by Evelyn Boudreau.
The program wound down
by a presentation of a spoof, for
which the moral was "let your
pages .do the walking through
the Yellow Fingers." The grand
finale was a rendition of "When
the Saints Come Marching In."
Age considers; youth ven-
tures.

JV Girls Win 1, Lose 1


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They reversed the normal
order in splitting games last
week.
The Hardee junior varsity
Lady Wildcats lost at home to
Frostproof and won at Palmetto
last week.
This week included games at
home against Avon Park on
Monday and a trip to Mulberry
tomorrow (Friday). Next
week's only games are at
DeSoto on Friday, with the JV
playing at 5 and varsity about 7.
Against Frostproof at home
on Thursday, Hardee seemingly
could do little right. When run-
ners got aboard, they couldn't
get home. Yet, the junior Lady
Bulldogs had a seemingly easy
time in executing a 17-0 win.
Hardee reversed that on Fri-
day night at Palmetto, sweeping
to an 8-1 victory.
Hardee opened it with five
runs. Maria Anselmo, Kayla
Powell and Haley Price all

12th Annual Car Show at Wells Dodge Chrysler
AVON PARK For the 12th
consecutive year, Wells
Dodge Chrysler is hosting
their annual classic car show
Sm on the Saturday before the 12
SHours of Sebring endurance
Race. What a great way to kick
off Speedweek in Highlands
County. On Saturday, March
14th, over 100 classic, antique, and race cars as well as customs, rods,
and race cars will fill the new car display area at Wells Dodge Chrysler
on US 27 between Avon Park and Sebring from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Over the years this classic car show has grown into one of the largest
and most fun shows of the season. With old car restoration growing into
a leading retirement activity, it is no wonder that the Wells show in
Highlands County with both it's demographic population and geo-
graphic location, has grown in size every year.
Another reason for it's size and success is that it is an open show. There
is no entry fee for exhibitors and admission if free for spectators.
Consequently, people who have been hesitant for the past have brought
their cars for a one time display. That means this show has vehicles that
have never been shown in Florida before. One of those unique vehicles
expected this year is a fully restored 1963 Mack straight bodied truck.
Where else can you go to see a Mack truck, a full blown dragster, a clas-
sic Model T and a street rod all within 50 yards of each other?
For a super, fun-filled outing. don't miss the 12th Annual Classic Car
Show at Wells Dodge Chrysler located on US 27 between Avon Park
and Sebring, on Saturday March 14th, between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m..

with 24 golf carts decorated
with helium-filled balloons and
crepe paper in purple and pink.


Many caregivers ana survivors
rode bikes and walked.
Afterward we shared cookies
and punch for at least 100 park
residents. We also had dona-
tions adding up to $50 for the
American Cancer Society.
We had flags placed at every
survivor's home so they would
be recognized as well as per-
haps build that bridge of con-
versation to confide and share.
We may gain a support group
out of this information that was
gathered.
We are expecting this to be.
bigger and greater next season,
with plans of this becoming a
yearly event.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

THE CRY FOR CHANGE
The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life has released a
major study of America's religious makeup. It reveals thatmillions
of Americans are trading in the faith of their fathers for a new faith
- or no faith at all.
"Unattached" is the fastest growing group. It is a grim picture
of a people hunting for change, and over and over not finding it.
Has God made Himself too difficult to find or are more and
more people searching for a god who will cater more to their wants
and desires?
I don't see how we can start to answer these questions without
going back to the Bible's oldest book, Genesis. Here we see God
creating the universe with man as His crowning achievement.
Adam works closely with God in a beautiful garden. There is no
discord. Obedience makes each day a time of delight.
Then sin enters in. The devil tempts the couple to disobey. The
result was expulsion from Eden and the beginning of the long, dark
saga of human history.
But wait!
There is a burning light in the middle of the centuries. It glows
from a manger. The darkness rolls back as God moves again, offer-
ing mankind forgiveness, cleansing and an opportunity to share in
God's own Life through His Son!
To the millions who have been clamoring for change, here is
the most wonderful change anyone could have imagined!


'Men In Music' Program

Greetings from Fort Green!
March has come in like a
lion, and as the old saying goes
it will go out like a lamb. It is
downright cold here in the
northwest part of the county! I
am sick and fired of cold weath-
er!
Mildred Cooper is better and
out of the hospital but Maxine
Williams is in the hospital.
Shaun Casey is home from the
hospital. Harriet Hendry had a
heart cath last Wednesday, the
4th. Slick Thompson's mother
is ill. Please remember to pray
for all of these.
Our community was sad-
dened to learn of the death of
Shelia Roberts' mother. Our
deepest sympathy is extended
to Shelia, Bruce and all the fam-
ily.
Last week I said the first bit
of news in this column would
be about 4-H, and here 'tis!
Two of Fort Green's finest won
the Best of the Show ribbons.
Courtney Alexander won a blue
and the coveted best of the
show for her "Wizard of Oz"
quilt and then a blue on the quilt
rack she built to display the
quilt. Way to go, Courtney! She
also got a red ribbon for her pil-
low.
Dalton Richey won Best of
the Show for his Trans Con-
tinental Railway. He also won a
red for his fishing lure and his
pillow and a blue on his leather
dream catcher. Dalton also told
me he received $5 a pound for
his pig from buyer, Matt Crews.
That is the best I have heard
from the Fort Green students!
Kasie Powell got a blue for
her hen and rooster entry and a
red on her pillow. She also
entered photography and won a
red. Kasie was real busy as she
also entered a dress, which
earned a blue, and a wood-burn-
ing picture frame received a
blue. Way to go, Kasie!
K-Lynn Simpson colored a
Cinderella figure and won a
blue, and red on her pillow and
picture frame. K-Lynn is one of


the mini-members. Hunter
Davis, another mini member,
won a red on his pillow.
Norma Alejandro won a blue
on her rooster material apron.
Kaylee Hogenauer won a red on
her "no sew poncho" and a blue
on her swine, Miss Piggy.
Makayla Chancey won a red on
her pillow and her photography.
Courtney Boiles received a red
on her pillow and a blue on her
swine.
Hannah Revell received a red
on her pillow as did Lane Rev-
ell, and then Hannah got a blue
on her swine. Brian Yake did a
wood-burning for the 4-H Cen-
tennial and received a blue, and
a blue on his necklace and a red
on his pillow. He received a
blue on his swine. Hunter Reid
won a blue on his rabbit and a
red on his pillow.
From the above you can see
Fort Green has a very active 4-
H Club. Charlotte Yake is the
leader and they meet the first
Thursday of each month at the
Fort Green Baptist Church fel-
lowship hall. Trish and Rex
Richey are the leaders of the
fishing club and they meet the
third Saturday of each month.
They will be busy with the fish-
ing tournament when it comes
May 9 at Hardee Lakes.
* When you motor into Hardee
County and see the 4-H signs
that welcome you, please notice
how clean they look. Rex and
Trish and their members went
on a cleaning spree last Satur-
day and cleaned all the 4-H
signs in our county.
4-H County Events will be
March 28 beginning at 8:30
a.m. Parents, you need to en-
courage your youngsters to get
their presentations ready and be
a part of this event. It is just as
big in 4-H as the fair! Believe
me, it used to be an all-day
affair and can again with en-
couragement.
Please pray for one another
and please call me with the
newsI

4B The Herald-Advocate, March 5, 2009


SUCCESSFUL RALLY


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
Two large appreciative audi-
ences saw the historic pageant,
"The March of Civilization,"
which was staged at the
Wauchula ballpark last Friday
and Saturday nights. Many
Wauchulans took part in the
pageant, which was staged by
E.H. Westwick, a well-known
producer of home-talent shows.
All Hardee County officials
who have offices in the court-
house have agreed to close on
noon on Saturdays, beginning
March 3. The bank and post
office and state offices already
close at noon on Saturdays.
Wauchula's famous Cash
Produce Market, which sends
out more than 1,000 carloads of
vegetables and strawberries
each year and is known among
produce buyers as one of the
best in the country, has changed
its method of transportation
from rail to truck. Today huge
trucks roar northward daily, car-
rying as much as 10,000 pounds
each.
Beeson Bros. Inc., the Rexall
Drug Store, offers a complete
line of drugs and drug sundries,
candies, cosmetics and smok-
ers' supplies, open 18 hours
every day in the week.
50 YEARS AGO
A new policy, aimed at stop-
ping any serious juvenile prob-
lems from developing in
Hardee County, is unveiled this
week by Hardee law enforce-
ment officers. In the future,
officers are authorized to pick


up and take home any young-
sters under 17 years of age
found on the streets after the
curfew of 10 p.m. Parents may
be charged with contributing to
their delinquency if they allow
them to stay out late at night for
no legitimate reason.
A new page in the story of
courtroom proceedings in
Hardee County was written this
week when the first woman
juror in the county's history was
summoned Tuesday for the
opening of the spring term of
Circuit Court. Mrs. H.M.
Simmons sat on a case with
"five good men and true," and
reached a verdict.

The Wauchula City Council
and the State Road Department
have collided head-on about the
speed of cars through the city.
The State Road Department
wants to increase speed to 30
miles in town and 45 miles on
the outskirts. The council wants
to remain at the present 25
miles per hour in city limits.

The Hardee Wildcats won
seven of their last eight games
to finish their season in a blaze
of glory by defeating their old
rival, Bartow, 58-45 before a
hometown crowd. The win gave
the Hardee cagers a very
respectable 8-6 conference
record against some of the
toughest teams in the state.
Several Zolfo Springs solid
citizens put aside their dignity
in a performance of "Aunt
Samanthy Rules The Roost,"
raising over $300 for the town's
recreation fund. Pictured were
Billie Gilliard, Dorothy Carl-
ton, Doyle Bryan and Bessie
Lee McClellan.

Nineteen men were on the job
Wednesday morning, 10 in
masonry, six in carpentry and
two in electrical. The crew is
working a five-day, 40-hour
week.
The intense heat cracked
Block walls apart and melted
aluminum screen doors as Mrs.
Mildred Kiser, 72, escaped
from her burning two-bedroom
home on Thursday night. The
structure, on Louisiana Street
west of First Christian Church,
was a total loss. She was fortu-
nate to come away from the
blaze with only burns on her
arm and shoulder. She was
treated at Hardee Memorial
Hospital and released.
The county commissioners
have changed the time of their
night meetings from 7:30 to 5
p.m. with a one-hour break for
supper. Commissioner Sam
Rawls said the board agreed to
night meetings once a quarter

pation.

Wauchula finally has a name of
its own. "Main Street Heritage

year-round use as .a: resting,
place;,for 'visitors:.to;the county.:
seat. But,.it will be a beehive, of
activity at the March 13 third
annual Cracker Heritage
Festival.
One of Hardee County's own

week. Assistant Fire Chief Billy
Wingate stepped up a notch to
lead the department he has
helped head for nearly nine
years. He began work with the
Hardee County, Fire Depart-
ment in 1972.
A recently completed project
at Zolfo Springs Elementary
School will provide 3,340
square feet for 200 of the child-
size kind. Four new classroomss
will allow four portables, each
over 25 years old, to be

a brand-new cafeteria and
remodeling of the old one into
the four badly needed class-.
rooms. .

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
When Jacob awoke from his
sleep, he thought, "Surely
the Lord God is in this place
and I was not aware of it."
Genesis 28:16 (NIV)
FRIDAY
When Jesus wraps this all
up, it's your faith, not your
gold, that God will have on
display as evidence of His
victory for you. You never
saw Him, yet you love Him.
You still don't see Him, yet
you trust Him with laughter
and singing.
I Peter 1:7b-8 (ME)
SATURDAY
When my heart was sad and
I was angry, I was senseless
and stupid . But I am
always with You and You
have held my hand. You
guide me with Your advice.
Psalm 73:22a,23a (NCV)
SUNDAY
Jesus answered them,
"Truly, truly, I say to you,
every one who (habitually)
commits sin is a slave to sin
But if the Son of God
makes you free, you will be
free (from sin) indeed."
John 8:34,36 (RSV)
MONDAY
Look, God is all powerful.
Who is a teacher like Him? .
God is so great that we
cannot begin to know Him.
No one can begin to under-
stand eternity.
Job 36:22,26 (TLB)
TUESDAY
I have this same hope in
God, that there is to be a res-
urrection of both good men
and bad. With this hope
before me, I do my utmost to
live my whole life with a clear
conscience before God and
man.
Acts 24:15-16 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
Fire tests the purity of silver
and gold, but the Lord tests
the heart ... disregarding
;;po~'r~ j?.:erson' faults pre-
": "srve'sove, .A. A truly wise
person uses few words; a
person with understanding
is even-tempered.

8B The Herald-Advocate, March 5, 2009


WEATHER SUMMARY
Warm nighttime and daytime temperatures reigned most of the
week. Very little rain was received midweek throughout the State.
The most accumulated precipitation was received in Jackson
County, 1.06 inches. Major cities averaged highs in the 60s, 70s,
and 80s with lows ranging from the 20s to 60s. Daytime tempera-
tures reached highs in the 70s and 80s with lows in the 20s, 30s,
and 40s.
FIELD CROPS
Potato plants were up in Putnam County, but growers were
worried about the effects of the cold front that passed though on
Sunday. Columbia County reported adequate hay supplies.
Producers in Glades County worked to harvest damaged sugarcane.
Topsoil moisture was mostly short in the central and southern
Peninsula but adequate in the Panhandle and Big Bend. Subsoil
moisture was mostly adequate in the Panhandle and southern
Peninsula, but short in the Big Bend and central Peninsula.

THE MIGHTY LORD

He stands so high.
When He talks it's as graceful as a dove.
His eyes glisten like a glowing sun.
His beard is fluffy and white as a bunny.
His hands have such power,
as His love for His children is the
best thing He has ever given to us.

was slow due to lack of rain. St. Johns County growers continued
to harvest cabbage and broccoli with good quality. Gadsden
County growers continued to prepare land for spring planting.
Immokalee growers finished planting. Heavy movement of straw-
berries continued in Plant City with good supply and demand.
Pompano growers in Broward County harvested squash, eggplant,
peppers, beans, and corn. The Wauchula County agent reported that
strawberries were at their peak; however, the watermelon crop was
still being evaluated from an earlier frost. Putnam County growers
harvested greens, broccoli, and beets. Hernando, Citrus, and
Sumter county growers began planting sweet corn. Some growers
in Bradford County used frost protection for their strawberry crop.
Greens were harvested and the onion crop was in good condition.
Seminole and Orange county growers harvested strawberries and
greens. Miami-Dade County growers planted beans and squash and
harvested tomatoes and squash. Other vegetables marketed were
celery, endive, lettuce, and tomatoes.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
Forage growth was limited throughout the State by cold and
freezing temperatures in the Panhandle and northern areas.
Drought was also a limiting factor in all areas. In the Panhandle
area, pasture condition was very poor to excellent. Cold tempera-
tures have limited ryegrass, oat, and wheat forage growth. Cattle
condition was poor to excellent with most fair to good. In the
northern areas, cold temperatures have limited forage growth.
Pasture and cool season forages were very short. More cattle were
being fed hay. Hay supplies were adequate, but cost was increas-
ing. In the central areas, pasture condition was mostly poor to fair.
Drought was limiting forage growth. Permanent pasture was dor-
mant and planted pasture was not yielding as much as normal.
Cattle condition was mostly poor. Pasture in the southwest was
very poor to good, but most was poor to fair. Dry soil conditions
have hampered pasture recovery. Pasture and forage continue to be
depleted as a result of drought and cool temperatures. Most of the
cattle in the southwest were in poor to fair condition. Statewide,
cattle condition was very poor to excellent with most fair to good.

CITRUS
All citrus areas experienced a warming trend beginning on
Tuesday. Temperatures reached the low to mid-80s by the week-
end, before a cool front began pushing in early Sunday morning.
All citrus areas continued to be abnormally dry and in need of rain-
fall. Most areas have not had significant rainfall since mid-January.
Ft. Pierce has been devoid of ample rains since mid- December.
With the warmer afternoons, many trees had new, small shoots and
were forming new leaves. With the exception of some weaker trees,
no areas have begun budding yet. Field personnel reported growers
were hedging, topping, irrigating, fertilizing, aerial spraying, and
mowing. Harvesting of early and midseason fruit has slowed sig-
nificantly due to availability. Some growers in the southern areas
were beginning to pick Valencia oranges. Honey tangerines will
most likely be finished early in March due to the short crop, early
start, and cold snap. Some packinghouses have finished taking tan-
gelos and Temples for the season.

Orange Blossom RV News .
By Connie Fisher


ORANGE BLOSSOM OPRY
The second Orange Blossom
Opry Pretenders Show took
place with great success. There
were over 20 different acts,
including Ernest Tubbs, Ronnie
Millsap, Dotty West, Jimmy
Reeves, Byrl Ives, Wynona
Judd, Hank Williams Jr., Pan:
Tillis, Little Jimmy Dickens,
Jerry Glower, Grandpa Jones
and Mona and Lee Ann Rimes,
to name a few.
There were 30 cast members
in the show. Preparation took
several weeks. Our director for
our show was Charlotte Wilson.
She works on the production for
one full year. She is already
working on next year.
Billy Wilson acted as Ralph
Emery, our emcee for the show.
IMPROVEMENTS
There have been more
improvements to the park, such
as in our hall there has been a
stage added. It will be great for
our Sunday services. It was
great for the Opry show and it is
nice for karaoke on Sunday
evenings, as you can see from
the back of the room what is
going on up front.
Our pool is now heated if you
are willing to fight this cool
weather to get in the pool. It is
kind of chilly these days. I have
been wondering what has hap-
pened to all this global warming
we have been hearing about for
years?
LEAVING
We at our park are already
saying see you in the fall, have
a safe trip, bon voyage and a
bientot to some of our residents.
It is really hard to believe that


the season is almost over. It
seems to me that we just arrived
a few days ago. Here it ,is the
first of March. Where did this
season go?
GAMES
Bingo's Thursday winners
were Gladys Ruhl, who won the
special jackpot, and Peggy
Ardelean, Lee Jarvis and Erik,
Grigsby split the mid-coverall.
Muriel Gurney won the final
coverall.
On Monday the winners were
Lee Jarvis on the mid-coverall
and Deana Paswater on the final
coverall.
Euchre Saturday winners
were: first, Frank Ardelean; sec-
ond, Kitty Kelsey; and third, Al
Hayes. Al Hayes and Paul
Kadarik had four lone hands.
Mike Rathbun took home the
snowman.
Wednesday games were won
by: first, Millie Welbaum; and
second, Mabel Burns. Third
was tied with Ted Morris,
Millie Shick and Frank
Ardelean. Willie Milbert and%
Bruce Kammer had two lone-
hands. Judy Forman took home ,
the snowman.
Cribbage was played Tuesday
evening with winners being-
first, Eleanor Dale; second,
Jack Brief; and third, Marge
Dean. Pokeno was also played
on that night with Jean Miller
winning the coverall.
LINE DANCING &
EXERCISE CLASSES
Please keep in mind the
Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday classes at 11. We real-
ly appreciate all that Charlotte
Wilson and Ed Denman do.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER
ULtniAl AG, ac. DD

Late in her career, opera star
Maila Callas had'difficulty in
hittirig the high nptes.
"Let us put the music in a
lower key," suggested the
musicians.
"No," she answered, "I
must try for all the notes."
One night her voice broke
as she reached for a high note.
Stopping the orchestra she
said, "Let's do it again." She
made it and the audience
thrilled her with thunderous
applause.
Falling down isn't failure,
but staying down is.
Have you fallen? Get up,
and the Lord promises, "I will
strengthen thee; yea; I will
help thee; yea, I will uphold
thee."

ANTIBIOTICS DON'T CURE COLDS OR FLU
There is an old belief that antibiotics cure everything'A news
flash for parents: antibiotics don't work fora cold or the flu!
No antibiotic will kill a virus, and viruses often cause colds,
sore throats and the flu. Antibiotics are designed to kill bacteria,
such as those that cause respiratory, digestive and urinary tract
infections.
According to the Centers for Disease Control, "Taking antibi-
otics when unnecessary can do more harm than good." The prac-
tice has led to the recent resurgence of drug-resistant bacteria.
The entire community is affected when drug-resistant bacteria
form into a new strain that is expensive to treat. This also requires
more time and research, and the infection may be more difficult to
cure. Diseases that were once thought to be contained to the hospi-
tal and institutional settings, such as MRSA, are now making their
way into the mainstream environment.
As part of the CDC's "Get Smart" campaign, it is recommend-
ed that when you are prescribed an antibiotic, you take it exactly as
instructed even if you start feeling better. Do not skip doses, do not
save antibiotics for the next time you get sick and never take antibi-
otics prescribed for anyone else or give your antibiotics to anyone
else.
If your health-care provider does not prescribe an antibiotic
for your symptoms, please respect his judgment.
So what can you do about a cold or the flu? Increase fluid
intake, use a cool mist vaporizer or saline nasal spray to relieve
congestion, and soothe a sore throat with ice chips, throat spray or
lozenges. Viral infections recover when the illness has run its
course and colds caused by viruses can last for several days.
Remember, if you do not feel well, stay home. Do not share
your germs with co-workers or others in the community. And the
same goes for your children. Keep them home from school instead
of sending them and sharing their germs with other children arid
teachers.
If a fever is associated with the illness, you should wait 24
hours after being fever-free before returning to school, work or
daycare.
And take note: The spread of infections and viruses can be
reduced through frequent hand washing! Perhaps the best prescrip-
tion you can get!

TRY PIONEER PARK DAYS AGAIN
Pioneer Park Days is just around the corner, and county
employees have been seen getting everything ready for the big
event.
Sprucing up has been going on in the museum as well as all of
the buildings that make up Pioneer Village. Wendell Smith has
been working on the exterior area of the Hart Cabin while his wife,
Wilma, has been sewing new curtains for the inside.
Cracker Trail Museum houses all of the Pioneer Park Days
newspaper inserts published each year by The Herald-Advocate.
This year, I reviewed all of those publications for research purpos-
es and came up with a few interesting statistics.

A aerial view of Pioneer Park Days flea-market and exhib-
it spaces during the 2004 event.
The previous "Engine Show" was moved to Pioneer Park in
1971, with the county taking over its operation in 1978. That year
there were 78 exhibitors and 221 flea market spaces. The festival
first started out as a three-day affair and has been increased to the
current five-day event.
The first Pioneer Park Days Parade was started in 1980. In
1984 the famous Clydesdale horses were part of the parade and
repeated the visit the next year.
In 1982, the first postal cancellation stamp was issued, and its
use has continued thereafter each year. In 1985, a free shuttle was
started that brought guests from Wauchula into the grounds of
Pioneer Park.
In 1987, Sen. Lawton Chiles marched in the Pioneer Park

era.
In 1994, the park was fenced and an entrance fee of $1 was
charged. In 1995, the entertainment tent was replaced by a perma-

Florida Orange Crop

Shrinks By 2.5 Percent


The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) on Feb. 10 re-
leased its February orange crop
forecast for the 2008-09 season,
reducing its earlier estimate by
2.5 percent, or 4 million boxes.
The USDA did not attribute
the decline to the freezes that
hit the Florida citrus belt in late
January and early February. The
USDA attributed the decline to
smaller sizes and increased fruit
drop and said it would continue
to assess the impact of the
freezes.
The crop is now expected to
total 158 million boxes.
"The USDA has taken off
several million boxes since
their original orange estimate in
October and with the field
reports we're getting regarding
fruit damage and juice yield
loss from the late January and
early February freezes we
would expect less juice produc-
tion than we were just a month
ago," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive VP/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual. "As a result, we
would anticipate better grower
returns for the late crop than'
what" we "6fipiencei tor the
early crop."
"This is most definitely a
challenging season, however,
Florida citrus growers will con-
tinue to produce the quality cit-
rus known across the globe for
its taste and health benefits."
Florida citrus was hit with a
cold spell on Jan. 22 and Feb. 5
which dropped temperatures
below 28 degrees for several
hours on both nights.
In its release, the USDA said,
"A freeze survey . conducted
on (Jan. 27-28) showed little or
no damage at that time. Addi-
tional assessments will be made
in mid and late February."
Visit www.nass.usda.gov/-
Statistics_byState/Florida/Pub
lications/Citrus/cpfp.htm for
the complete USDA estimate.
The USDA makes its initial
forecast in October and then
revises it monthly until the end
of the season in July. In 2007-
08, Florida harvested 170.2 mil-
lion boxes of oranges.
The USDA maintained its
prediction that 23 million boxes

1997, that entry fee was raised to $2, and it was during this year
that parking along State Road 64 was discontinued.
In 2000 the Animal Refuge was under construction, and it
opened for the first Pioneer Park Days in 2001.
George Collins was the county coordinator of the event for the
years 1978-1992. Jane Long took over those duties in 1993, and .
continues serving in that current capacity today.
Five-day passes are available this year at Cracker Trail
Museum for a very reasonable fee of $5. For that fee, Pioneer Park
Days guests will not only be able to visit all of the 489 flea market
spaces, enjoy snacks and meals from a variety of food vendors,
view all of the Hardee County relics housed in the Cracker Trail
Museum, watch a real blacksmith at work and send a piece of mail
postmarked from the Cracker Trail Post Office, but they will also
be entertained daily by some of the best names in bluegrass and
Southern gospel music.
We hope that all of you will consider attending Pioneer Park
Days this year and become reacquainted with this annual event -
an event that surely even Tony Ullrich and Earl Nickerson would
never have guessed could have grown into what it is today.
