STRENGTHENED


$65 Million For



Wauchula. Woman

She Needs Constant Care


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
What's the cost for a lifetime
of lost wages and constant care?
For Kendra Lyon, of Wau-
chula, the verdict in mid-March
was $65 million.
When critically injured in an
accident on Aug. 21, 2007, the
Hardee High School graduate
was looking at a bright future.
She was attending South
Florida Community College,
planning to major in psycholo-
gy. In addition, she could speak
several languages and worked
as a residential aide at Florida
Institute for Neurologic Rehab-
ilitation.
After several months in a
coma and undergoing therapy,
she continues to have limited
speech, and requires constant
assistance with daily care, most
often using a wheelchair.
The then-19-year-old was
traveling north on U.S. 17 in
Zolfo Springs about 10:30 a.m.
on Aug. 21, 2007. According to
testimony at the recent civil
trial in Bartow, Lymon had the

Although the disciples fell asleep, Jesus was not left to face His trial, crucifixion and death alone. When He prayed
in the Garden of Gethsemane, an angel came to comfort and encourage Him. "The Story of Jesus" did not end with
His death. He was resurrected three days later and will come again to reign forever. Celebrate Easter by seeing the
nationally known Passion Play at the Cattlemen's Arena Friday or Saturday night, or next weekend. For tickets, call

Youth Fast To Feed Others


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
In the last 50 years, 400 mil-
lion people worldwide have
died from hunger and poor san-
itation, according to www.30-
hourfamine.org.
One local church youth group
is fighting against those num-
bers. Thirst737 Student Minis-
tries of Oak Grove Baptist


Church of Wauchula recently
spent 30 hours without food.
The objective, according to
Youth Pastor James Bradley,
was to raise money for every
hour the students did not eat.
That money will be given to
starving children in the Amazon
through the non-profit group
World Vision.
This is the first time that the


local -youth group has partici-
pated in the 30-Hour Famine.
"Our goal is to raise
,$5,000,"said Bradley. He ex-
plained that each student began
finding sponsors back in
January.
The actual 30-Hour Famine
began for the youth group on
Friday, March 27. They started
fasting at noon, after eating


lunch at school.
That evening all 17 students
and four adults made their beds
out of cardboard boxes that had
been collected from various fur-
niture stores around town.
"They decorated their boxes
with markers and spray paint
and some .even made connect-
ing tunnels so they could go

green light as she approached
the intersection. Entering the
intersection of U.S. 17 and SR
64 in her Dodge Neon, she was
hit by a southbound Freightliner
tractor-trailer attempting to turn
east onto SR 64.
Early reports from Zolfo
Springs Police Department Ofc.
Eric Fotheringtom did not list
charges as his investigation was
continuing. It noted that Lymon
was severely injured and trans-
ported to Tampa General
Hospital where she was listed in
critical condition.
The truck driver, Robert
Bohn, then 40, of Lakeland,
said at the trial that he thought
he had the right-of-way. A Polk
County fireman, he was work-
ing part-time for Bynum Trans-
port of Auburndale. He and the
trucking company were named
defendants in the lawsuit filed
in Lymon's behalf by the
Tampa-based law firm Wilkes
& McHugh.
The jury award of March 18
is believed to be one of the
largest awarded in a 10th
Judicial Circuit court.


Man Sentenced


In Narcotics Sales


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A man who repeatedly sold a
narcotic pain killer to a confi-
dential informant has been sen-
tenced to more than four years
behind bars.
Phillip Ray Carver, 40, of the
Forest Glade Apartments at 700
E. Townsend St. in Wauchula,
was handed a state prison term
of 49.9 months at his sentencing
hearing before Circuit Judge
Marcus J. Ezelle. '
The prison time followed
charges of sale of oxycodone
and possession of drug para-
phernalia.
Ezelle also assessed $520 in
fines and court costs, and a
$100 cost of prosecution fee.

ate their own.
For almost a year a local
group of stay-at-home mothers
have been getting together
weekly to create more of a
school-type environment 'for
their children.
"The motivation came from
moms who did not want to put
their children in an all-day,
every day preschool/daycare,
but wanted their children to
have interaction with other kids
their age while starting to
understand a little about school-
type activities," said Karen
Mirabella, one of the mothers.
She said when she first
moved to Hardee County,
almost two years ago, there
were not a lot of activities for
younger children or stay-at-
home mothers to do.
"I started meeting some
mothers through story time at
the library on Thursday morn-
ings and they felt the same
way," said Mirabella.
In the beginning, the mothers
vould take turn watching each
other's children with half of the
moms staying with the children
and the other half getting a
morning to themselves.
"Instead of just babysitting
we would have some preschool
type activities planned for the
children but it ended up not

Spin Winds Of Change For Children


Kelly's Column
By Jim


Rick Justice, president of First National Bank of Wauchula,
said last week the nation's economy will improve as it always has
in the past.
"Businesses that are able to survive will be at a competitive
advantage when the economy improves. Some of the weaker com-
panies are failing. Our local businesses have been managed well to
survive these times. Businesses and people need to be resilient and
find ways to make a living."
Justice said the recent Hardee County Fair was one of the most
successful ever. "The traditional, agricultural-based economy has
helped us weather these turbulent times," noting that "dollars spent
in our local economy will multiply."

Ken Weis, 62, of Wauchula on Jan. 5, 2008, had a bone mar-
row transplant in his several-year fight against cancer. Last week
he got to talk over the telephone to his donor.
The donor was John Swain, 38, a construction project manag-
er who lives in Marietta, Ga. He signed up for the Bone Marrow
National Registry 12 years ago while living in Massachusetts.

David Trader of Amherst, Wis., recently wrote in Industry
Week magazine that some CEOs are getting big salaries and bonus-
es "while shedding jobs and riding the company to the grave, then
just moving on. I don't understand getting a bonus for downsizing
a company."
Trader also wrote that "Henry Ford was not wrong when he
thought he would sell more cars,if his employees could afford
them."
I have long felt we should have a new Henry Ford in America
to lead the way to build simpler, more economic cars and trucks.
For too long some companies have been building cars and trucks
with too many features and changing them every year.
Most cars and trucks built in recent years can get 200,000
miles if they are well maintained and serviced regularly.

Jory Gromer, general manager of Green Bay Packaging in
Chickasha, Okla., recently wrote in Industry Week magazine that in
the past "individuals acting upon their own free will saved the day,
not the government.", .
He noted that "anyone who is honest wants the playing field
slanted in their favor." Gromer noted that "government's only
responsibility should be to bring to justice and swiftly punish those
who violate principles of proper business practices."

Also in Industry Week, an experienced plant/facilities manag-
er in noith central America said, "If government cannot stop jobs
going out of the country, then the only jobs left will be fast food.
Buy a house or car on those wages."
An experienced pulp and paper manager in the South Atlantic
area wrote, "Our government needs to recognize the importance of
a strong manufacturing base. The financial golden goose has laid
her last egg and has now been cooked, leaving us spattered in the
grease.
A longtime corporate/executive manager in
, construction/building products manufacturing in the north central
U.S. said, "There are lots of successful people out there that are
doing well because they work hard and do what needs to be done.
They take care of their employees when times are slow and bless
them when times are good. There are still plenty of people making
money and spending it wisely on things that matter for everyone."
An experienced plant/facilities manager in plastics/rubber
products in the Northeast said, "We need to make things, not just
push money around. The economy is beginning to look like a giant
pyramid.sc-ifeme."
A longtime product development manager in aerospace and
defense manufacturing said, "It's long past time for a shake-up in
most industries. Those that have not worked hard to accomplish
certain efficiencies in manufacturing should be allowed to fail.
Those that operate at the highest levels of efficiency are already
profiting from their achievements, and will continue to do so in the
future. Companies have failed in the past anrd will do so in the
future, and from their demise new companies will emerge that
grow and prosper by embracing efficient processes and methods."
Lisa Davis, a senior director of quality and continuous
improvement for Siemens IT Solutions and Services, said, "It is
important to give people opportunities to participate in decision-
making. Nothing makes someone feel more connected to and
responsible for an organization than affording them meaningful
input and responsibility. Provide that, and you will generally
improve their performance.
An experienced purchasing manager with a chemicals manu-
facturer in the Southeast said, "I am concerned about the lack of
young people getting into manufacturing."
A longtime plant/facilities manager with an industrial products
manufacturer in the south central area said, "I regret that I cannot
recommend manufacturing as a career goal to any of my three chil-
dren."
America has a new president, Barack Obama, who is working
hard to help, turn things around in this country and the world. He
has high approval ratings so far. I like his wife Michelle, too. She
has planted a vegetable and herbs garden at the White House lawn
and is going to make her husband and two daughters pull weeds.
Sounds like a good role model.

Today's children are tomor-
row's leaders.
Economic stress leads to
increased child abuse and
neglect, but increased invest-
ment in healthy child develop-
ment leads to economic stabili-
ty.
Investing in prevention and
early intervention programs are
much more positive than spend-
ing money on treatment after a
child has become abused or
neglected.
These and other bits of infor-
mation were shared with the
Hardee County Commission
last Thursday as commissioners
approved a proclamation of
April as Child Abuse Preven-'
tion Month in Hardee County.
According to local statistics,
Hardee County is home to over


working so well. At the begin-
ning of this year we switched to
more of a playgroup/preschool
co-op and it has been going
well," said Mirabella.
The group meets on Tuesdays
from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at Faith
Presbyterian .Church in Wau-
chula. Children range in age


7,840 children. Over 1,400
children in Hardee, Highlands
and Polk counties are receiving
services due to abhse or neglect.
One side of the audience sec-
tion at the commission cham-
bers was filled with people sup-
portive of the proclamation.
These included representatives
of most of the local groups
working with children and their
families, including Heartland
For Children, Kids Hope
United, the state Department of
Children and Families, Early
Learning Coalition, the Hardee
County Health Department,
Child Abuse Prevention Alli-
ance, Young Men's Christian
Association- (YMCA) and Tri-
County Addictions. Shauna

represented them in reading the
proclamation and encouraging
commissioners to approve it.

"It's our turn to take responsi-
bility for the care and welfare of
Florida's children," they said.
Before the meeting, commis-
sioners and many of these advo-
cates met on the west lawn of
Courthouse Annex I where a
Winds of Change banner and
Pinwheel Garden had been
placed. Speaking for them, 10th
Circuit Chief Judge David
Langford encouraged everyone
to help prevent child abuse by
being more aware of the needs
and welfare of children.
Winds of Change is the 2009
social responsibility project for
the Early Childhood Associ-
ation of Florida. It's emphasis is
on healthy child development
and good health for all children.
"Florida's future prosperity
depends on their healthy growth

Task-rforce Tirm-September -of
2007. Each" wa'ctharged 'with
selling the illegal narcotic. -
As the Drug Task Force con-
ducted a probe into alleged drug
sales by the couple, a confiden-
tial informant was used to
arrange the purchase of meth-
amphetamine, sheriff's Col.
Claude Harris Jr. said at the
time.
But at the scheduled meeting
time on Sept. 13, 2007, Carlson
said the couple had no metham-
phetamine available but could
sell the informant oxycodone
instead.
Four pills were purchased,
Harris said.
Then, on Sept. 18, 2007, the
couple sold the informant 11
pills for $50.
And the next day, on Sept.
19, $90 exchanged hands for 21
oxycodone pills.
Oxycodone is a narcotic anal-
gesic that is used. as a pain
killer. If used for a long period
of time, it can become addic-
tive.
Oxycodone sales are strictly
controlled by the state.
Harris said Carison' had
obtained a prescription for the
pills. Then, the couple put them
up for sale. .
Carlson was sentenced for
her part in the crime-on Nov. 12
of last year. She was placed on
10 years of drug-offender pro-
bation. Carlson is accused of
violating that probation, how-
ever, and was in court again on
Tuesday.

back and forth between boxes,"
said Bradley.
One student went as far as
creating a tepee out of his box.
"The kids called it their card-
board subdivision," Bradley
exclaimed.
He explained that the stu-
dents were living like true
homeless people in order to get
a sense of what life would be
like without a home.
Throughout the evening the
students sipped on 100 percent
natural juice and every two
hours had a devotional with
music provided by New Hope
Baptist Church's praise team
band. Some youth from
Northside Baptist Church also
participated in the devotionals
for part of the evening.
They also participated in a
Prayer Path that featured 11 sta-
tions and tribal games where
students were broken up into a
real Amazonian tribe.
After spending the night on
the church grounds, the stu-
dents began their community
service project at the Hardee
Help Center in Wauchula.
Some of the activities includ-
ed painting, organizing one of
the rooms and donating the 55-
gallon drum that was full of
non-perishable items they had
beeni collecting.
From the Help Center to its
sister store, the Thrift Store,
students landscaped and planted
flowers, cleaned up the store,
organized the many books and
separated hangers for the store.
The youth group achieved all
of this without a single taste of
solid food.
"We kept drinking juice and
water throughout the day but it
was so hot we let the kids have
100 percent natural juice popsi-
cles to crunch on," said
Bradley.
That afternoon the group
headed back to the church
where Pastor Jim Davis held
communion with them, the first
meal they ate. At 6 p.m., after
30 hours of no food, the stu-
dents enjoyed a large breakfast
prepared by some of the par-
ents.
"One of the kids said they felt
like they were going to pass out
but it was worth giving up the
food to help raise money for
starving children," said


Bradley.
All parents had to sign a med-
ical release form for their child
and only students ages 12-18
participated.
The student ministry will
continue to collect donations

Pedestrian



Is Killed
By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 42 year-old man was killed
,when he was hit by a 1997
Dodge Van while walking on
U.S. 17.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Cpl. Rene Benavi-
dez, the accident occurred at
about 9:45 p.m. last Thursday
on the highway 'north of Rainey
Boulevard.
The Hispanic man, whose
name will not be released until
the family has been notified,
was walking northbound in the
southbound outside right lane
of U.S. 17 when he was struck
by 50 year old Manuela Alcan-
tar of Wauchula.
Alcantar, he said, was travel-
ing southbound on the highway
in the outside right lane when
the front right side of the van
collided with the pedestrian.
Benavidez said Alc.antar was
"wearing her seatbelt at the time
of the accident, which was not
alcohol related. Her passengers
David Ochoa, 22, Reyna Rami-
rez, 1, Amanda Alcantar, 23,
and Juan Lara, 9, did not re-
ceive injuries.
The 42 year-old man became
the second person to die on

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A new series of community
activities is starting soon.
Friday Night Live! is a new
event series in downtown Wau-
chula for the third Friday night
of every months, explains Main
Street Wauchula director Jessi-
ca Newman.
The first such event will be
next Friday, April 17, when
downtown shops and restau-
rants will "come alive." From 5
to 9 p.m., there will be live
entertainment, provided by
Slick Willy.
Local businesses have com-
bined to offer special deals, in-
cluding an opportunity to enter
a raffle drawing for a two-night
stay at the Cypress Bed &


Happiness often sneaks in
through a door you didn't
know you left open.
-John Barrymore


Breakfast in Sarasota.
The Lion's Club and Lion-
ettes will offer free face paint-
ing for children.
Adults can take their best
shot at several local govern-
-ment officials in the dunk tank.
Among the possibilities will be
Sheriff Arnold Lanier; county
commissioners Dale Johnson,,
Minor Bryant and Bobby,
Smith; Wauchula commission-
ers Kenny Lambert and David
Royal; and Economic Develop-
ment Council director Bill
Lambert.
"This event will be fun for all
ages. It is a great opportunity to
hang out downtown, take
advantage of special deals and
have a great time. It is our goal
to make this monthly series
something that will become a
regular for the local community
and will even draw visitors to
our downtown," said Newman.

DROUGHT
An article in last week's
issue on drought restric-
tions gave an incorrect
number to call the South-

mation on drought restric-
tions or to report viola-
tions. The correct number
is 1-800-848-0499.
The Herald-Advocate re-
grets any problems from
the incorrect number.
At The Herald-Advocate,
we want accuracy to be a
given, not just our goal. If
you believe we have print-
ed an error in fact, please
call to report it. We will
review the information, and
if we find it needs correc-
tion or clarification, we will
do so here.

Resthaven Tourney A Big Success


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The first annual Resthaven
Golf Tournament Saturday was
successful in many ways.
"We were well supported.
The players, businesses and
golf course were great. The Key
Club and Lionettes helped a lot.
We served a light breakfast and
lunch," said Tina LeConte,
Resthaven manager and tourna-
ment director.
Two teams contributed their
cash prizes back to the assisted


living facility. One man won a
barbecue grill and immediately
auctioned it off for Resthaven.
Although, she had not complet-
ed counting all receipts and
contributions, LeConte reported
well over $1,000 was raised.
The facility in the Lemon
Grove community, about 10
miles east of town, now has 16
residents and is accepting more.
Just having community support
has helped, stressed LeConte.
Winners of the tournament
were the four-man team of Ron


Bromley, Dick Ellis,' Joe Lutz
and Butch Spearman. In second
place was Wauchula Police
Chief Bill Beattie, Dr. Robert
Helveston, Paul Samuels and
Warren Watt. -
Watt 'was also the Winner of
the 40-inch TV raffled off4.'
For anyone who" wants to
contribute financially or with.
donations of meats, clothing,
personal care items for resi-
dents and similar items, contact
LeConte at Resthaven, 773-.
6000.

Growers Read To Kids


Sorts SchII I[1edule [VApr]il 9EApri.23


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of local men were
among more than 1,000 citrus
industry volunteers to read at
their local schools.
Ben Albritton and Ken
Sanders took time out recently
to join 1,074 volunteers to read
to 2,337 elementary school
classrooms around the state.
It was part of Agriculture
Literacy Day, an event orga-


nized by Florida Agriculture in
the Classroom Inc. and 'the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services.
Kicked off on March 24, this
was the sixth year for this event.
This year's book is "These
Florida Farms!" The books and
materials sent to volunteers
were funded from sales of the
specialty license plate called
"the Ag Tag."
The Florida Department of


Citrus provided student goodie
bags.
Peace River Valley Citrus
Growers staff and volunteers
joined the statewide effort,
which will continue at schools
in Arcadia, Myakka City, North
Port and Port Charlotte.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

WHY ALL THE EXCITEMENT?
The Bible tells us that our Lord was seized in the Garden of
Gethsemane by a "great multitude with swords and staves." Why
such a crowd? To the high priest they went for a mock trial, then
on to the Roman governor for another phony court-martial.
Although Pilate saw no fault in Jesus, he gave him up for crucifix-
ion to satisfy the mob. Then "the whole band of Roman soldiers"
turned out to mock and scourge this solitary prisoner!
Why all the uproar about an itinerant preacher whose only
crime was going up and down the countryside healing, feeding and
teaching?
Then it hit me. Why was all this fury against Jesus? It was
because of what the Bible calls the "flesh" and behind the flesh, the
devil. That is why it had to be a huge, savage spectacle!
And what does all this tell us about your flesh and mine? It is
exactly the same as Pilate's and the high priest's! This is the com-
mon humanity of us all: always opposed to God, always siding
with the enemy, always trying to compromise. Do we recognize it
in ourselves?
The Bible says we are to "put to death the deeds of the body.
If we don't, we will die" (Romans 8). But come now. Can it really
be that bad'? Surely there are a few good notions that the flesh can
be salvaged and dressed up so as to be acceptable. But the scrip-
tures are firm. "It is the spirit that gives life. The flesh profits noth-
ing."
So severe! So final! The flesh quivers and cries out. "I will
reform! I will change my ways! Remember that I am your friend,
the only one who appreciates and loves you, who grants those lit-
tle foibles you cherish. Can you really be ready to throw aside these
treasures? No more fun! No more secret pleasures! Nothing but the
ridiculous notion of obeying a voice and a presence of a God you
can't even see!
Still God waits for our decision. He waits. He watches. He lis-
tens. Will this be the Easter we come at last to the end of ourselves
so that God can begin His own good work in our hearts'?

Herald and The Herald-
Advocate...
75 Years Ago
Well-known local undertaker
Bryant Coker has been catching
up on his fishing lately. Last
week, he brought in two nice
strings of trout. On Saturday, he
caught the big one, weighing 8-
1/2 pounds.
The Kiwanis club members
went on record Tuesday as
favoring Florida's exhibit at the
Century of Progress in Chicago
this summer. They voted to rec-
ommend that the county com-
missioners donate a sum toward
the exhibit, if the board sees fit.
The Depression does not
seem to bdther those Hardee
County farmers any more than a
fly bothers an elephant. When
not growing strawberries,
cucumbers and all sorts of pro-
duce, the farmers are out night-
hunting frogs. A new industry is
rabbit hunting. One man killed
137 in one night.

Hardee County's legislative
representatives fared well this
session with committee assign-
ments for the 1959 Legislature.
Recognized as representing one
of the state's foremost citrus
counties, Sen. Doyle Carlton Jr.
and Rep. G. W. Williams will
each be on the Citrus
Committee. Citrus is consid-
ered a major committee
appointment.
Bowling Green's proposed
annexation of areas north and
south of the city faces rough
sledding if a public meeting
Tuesday night is any indication.
Almost every seat in the school
cafeteria was filled by the more
than 100 people who turned out.
To judge by their comments,
most of them opposed annexa-
tion, fearing increased taxes and
responsibility for the city's
$90,000 bonded indebtedness.
The Wildcats lost their first
game of the season after six vic-
tories, then collected a no-hitter
on Tuesday night. Dewey
Terrell pitched a beauty of a
one-hitter on Friday night. Pat
Counts gave Terrell all the sup-
port he needed. After a loss to
Avon Park, Wendell Roberts
pitched the Cats' first no-hitter
of the season at Riverview as
the Cats won 8 to 2.
F.L. Revell Real Estate has a
50-lot subdivision three blocks

at six percent interest. Also
offered is a new two-bedroom
concrete-block home in Wau-
chula Hills on a paved road for
$6,750, $750 down and $60 per

10 Years Ago
A trio of city residents came
home to some shocking news
last week. Their homes had
been burglarized and their pos-
sessions stolen. But, imagine
their further surpi ise as they
learned simultaneously that the
crimes had already been solved,
the suspects arrested and half of
the property recovered.
Wauchula Police Department
Lt. William Beattie explained
how burglaries on south
Seventh, Ninth and 10th
avenues were solved.
A normally dull budget hear-
ing Tuesday may turn exciting
as the Hardee County
Commission labors to decide if
it should approve $250,000 a
year for patient care for county
residents. Florida Hospital

had been closed for a year. It

FINDING YOUR WAY THROUGH
THE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
No matter what happens with healthcare reform over the next
year, you will still need to be smart about steering through the
healthcare system to be certain you get the best care possible..
Here are some tips:
Know your policy. Find out which doctors, hospitals and'
labs accept your insurance. Be familiar with the benefits it covers
and which ones it doesn't.
Save everything every letter from the insurance company,
every bill, every receipt for a co-pay or deductible. Keep these in a
separate place from other bills and letters; maybe in a file marked
Healthcaree.'
Be your own health advocate. Question diagnoses or treat-i
ments ordered for you if you don't understand them. Make your;
doctor aware of any side effects or problems you have with the,
treatment. Follow up on tests if you haven't heard back from the,
doctor's office.
Track your medical history. Until we have a national system
of medical health records, you need to have your own, especially if
you have a chronic condition like diabetes, cancer or a heart con-
dition. Keep a running list of every doctor you have seen, every test.
and the results, every medication you have been given, every
surgery or other procedure and any allergies. Give a copy of this
list to every new doctor you see.
Stay as healthy as possible.
Have regular screenings like mammograms,
colonoscopies, Pap tests
Eat a healthy diet low in salt, sugar and satu-
rated fats
Exercise regularly 30 minutes (or more) on
most days
Wash your hands this is one of the best ways i
to prevent infection. Carry a little bottle of sani-
tizer in your purse and your car and use it.
Take your medicines as prescribed. It will help
keep your condition under control so it doesn't
flare up and land you in the emergency room.
Communicate. Talk to your doctors, your nurses and the
office staff. Be honest with them because you may not get an accu-
rate diagnosis if they don't know all your symptoms. Great health-
care relationships are built on trust.

County Gets Good Audit


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Once again, the bottom line is'
that Hardee County is financial-
ly in good shape.
.That's on paper, and weaving
one's way through the 57-page
annual audit presented to the
Hardee County Commission
last Thursday.
Mike Carter and Lita


McHugh, of the NCT Group
CPA's LLP, presented a 2007-
08 fiscal year report, highlight-
ing the major information and
noting that the county again
was given an "unqualified opin-
ion."
This highest possible rating
means that the county manages
its finances well and according
to proper accounting standards.


Funds are kept separate and
used for designated purposes.
The county's fiscal year runs
from Oct. 1 through. the next
Sept. 30. The overall'report lists
total assets of $98.5 million and
$21 million in liabilities. The
overall report includes the five
constitutional officers, the sher-
iff, tax assessor, tax collector,
supervisor of elections and

clerk of courts, as well as mat-
ters under the direct control of
the commission.
Revenues fall into a bunch of
categories, including taxes,
grants, loans, fines, assess-
ments, fees, and a lot of other
income. Expenditures include
36 percent for public safety
(law enforcement, fire-rescue,
and emergency management),
27 percent for general govern-
ment (all the various depart-
ments of the county), 11 percent
for transportation and the rest
for other expenses.
For the last fiscal year, in all
county departments, revenue
was $34.1 million and expendi-
tures $32.9 million, leaving a
carryover to start the new fiscal
year until taxes and other rev-
enue are received.
"People ask us what we do
with all that money," said Com-
mission Chairman Dale John-
son. Much of the audit is con-
veying in accounting language,
showing transfers between de-
partments, paying down debt,
funds reserved for landfill clo-
sure, and wastewater and water
projects.
Part of the audit lists "capital
assets," a requirement of the
GATS-34, a federal method of
reporting values of land,
buildings and improvements,
machinery and equipment, and
infrastructure, such as roads,
bridges and sewer systems,
each with an assigned value,
appreciated or depreciated.
Periodically, old or worn equip-
ment is discarded or set aside
for auction, or there are new
buildings, equipment and roads,
thus changing the value of
assets each year.
Debts include such things as
capital leases, loan payments,
landfill and wastewater indebt-
edness and even uncompensat-
ed employee absences, for
which the county has to have
adequate funds to pay.
The county is still paying on
such items as a hydraulic exca-
vator, three fire trucks, two
ambulances, a copier, radio
equipment and a heavy-duty
pump.
The audit is further compli-
cated by carryover of grant
monies from year to year until
they are fully used. These may
be grants for hurricane housing
relief; housing rehabilitation;
recreation at Hardee Park,


Hardee Lakes Park or other
parks; specific projects such as
sewer, water or landfill.

In other action, the commis-
sion:
approved proclamation of
April as Water Conservation
Month. For hints on how to
conserve water, water restric-
tions and other information, call
1-800-423-1476 or go to
www.WaterMaters.org and fol-
lowlinks to information need-
ed.
approved the request of
Sheriff Arnold Lanier to apply
for a three-year grant to pay
salary and benefits for two offi-
cers for the Sheriff's Office,
which will have to provide the
vehicle and equipment for
them. Lanier said he planned to
use them in Magnolia Manor
subdivision, which has had
1,605 calls for service in three
months, and in Zolfo Springs,
which presently only has one
officer on an eight-hour sched-
ule, rotating with sheriff's
deputies to cover the town.


Lanier withdrew a request to
use $7,788 from the Law
Enforcement Trust Fund (con-
fiscated monies) for the pur-
chase of a drug detection K-9.
They present 8-year-old is hav-
ing some problems with arthri-
tis but new medication may
help. It is used for cell searches,
at the high school and other nar-
cotics detection..
approved a request from
the Hardee County Builder's
Association to give preference
to local businesses in-awarding
contracts. Almost all have the
bonding and insurance cover-
age required by county bids.
The preference is limited to
bids five percent over the low-
est acceptable bid and the coun-
ty is not bound by it if the local
bid is over budget.
approved a commissioner
traveling to Washington, D.C.
with a DeSoto County commis-
sioner to meet with legislative
leaders and follow opportunity
to get federal funding for U.S.
17 four-laning in the south end
of the county.


Aborigines are thought to have been able to cross the Torres
Strait from New Guinea to Australia, then at least 43 miles
across, as early as 55,000 B.C.

Luck? I don't know anything about luck. I've never banked on it
and I'm afraid of people who do. Luck to me is something else:
Hard work-and realizing what is opportunity and what isn't.

Electric Taxes High


An estimated group of more
than 1,500, attended Peace
River Electric Cooperative's
(PRECO) recent 69th annual
meeting in Wauchula. Regist-
ered members and their families
enjoyed the many activities,
food, and a picnic atmosphere.
An assortment of public infor-
mation booths from various
counties in PRECO's service
territory welcomed visitors with
brochures and token give-away
items.
Each year's meeting provides
the members an opportunity to
learn about the business of the
cooperative and. vote on appro-
priate issues. The business
meeting assumed a somber tone
as Bill Mulcay, PRECO's CEO,
warned the members that
impending climate legislation
could affect their future electric
bills.
"There are plans to raise your
electric bills by $20 a month,
possibly $30, or maybe even as
high as $50," shared Mulcay.
"That comes from the Presi-
dent's 2010 preliminary budget,
in which he wants to add a car-
bon tax on coal."
Congress is currently consid-
ering climate change laws
which would tax the energy
sector for carbon emissions. A
carbon tax, sometimes referred
to as "cap and trade" or "cpal
tax," would be passed on to
American consumers as an
added expense on their electric
bill.
"Many people say they don't
mind paying a little extra to
clean up emissions, protect the
environment, or develop the
technology we need to clean up
our air. But: if you think that


money will be used to achieve
those things or address global
warming, it's not. Simply, it's to
pay for programs," he added.
"It's the President's new source
of revenue for many of the pro-
grams he will be proposing."
Mulcay pointed out that elec-
tric cooperatives all across the
nation are supporting a unified
grassroots initiative, named
"Our Energy, Our Future," de-
signed to get the attention of
lawmakers with a message
which opposes additional taxes
on electricity. Holding up an
Our Energy, Our Future sign-up
card, he added, "If the funding
of programs through your elec-
tric bill bothers you, fill out this
card and we will contact your
elected representatives on your
behalf, telling them 'No' to this
carbon tax."
PRECO members signed
more than 900 cards at the
event, overwhelmingly coming
out against any proposed


General Manager Bill Mulcay
ing the business session.


increase in taxes on electric
bills. In the past year, over
4,000 PRECO members have
joined the Our Energy, Our
Future initiative to keep electric
bills reasonable and affordable.
Through Our Energy, Our
Future and the efforts of the 900
electric cooperatives in the
U.S., more than 1.6 million
messages have flooded
Congress, with more than
33,000 of these coming from
Floridians.
To learn more about Our
Energy, Our Future or to get
involved, contact Peace River
Electric toll-free at 800-282-
3824 or visit the cooperative's
website at www.preco.coop.
PRECO serves nearly 35,000
member/consumers in Brevard,
DeSoto, Hardee, Highlands,
Hillsborough, Indian River,
Manatee, Osceola, Polk and
Sarasota Counties through
almost 4,000 miles of power
lines.

the girls lost 3-4 in make-up
matches at Palmetto on March
30. The teams had a harder go
against Sarasota Booker on
Thursday, the girls losing 5-2
and the boys losing 1-6.
Both teams will gear up dur-

losing a tough 8-7 (5).
Hardee won one of the dou-
bles, outings. Bodeck/Spears
downed Andy Ng/Kevin Charl-

Florida


So America Grows


"Being a farmer is a pretty big responsibility. But there's a lot
of satisfaction in providing families with food products-like
the oranges we grow. Phosphate, found right here in Florida,
helps them grow better. It's a natural product, so that's
why it works so well. In fact, Florida provides 75 percent of the
phosphate needed by farmers across America. The folks who
send us phosphate have a big responsibility too-the land.
They return it to nature for future generations, they plant
trees and they build parks. I can respect that."

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



One day I asked a lady to
teach a Sunday school class in
a church where I served.
"I won't," she said. "I d9n't
want to be tied down to
things."
"Ma'am," I replied, "the
Lord was willing to be tied
down to things, He was nailed
to a cross for us."
When I first saw that, I said
to Him, "Lord, Your body was
broken for me. Live Your
life all over again in my body.
Your hands and feet were
nailed to the cross for me.
Work with my hands and walk
,with my feet. You'bore a cross
for me. I now take. up my
cross, and I'll follow You any-
where, anytime, and at any
cost."


s He rode on a donkey, Jesus' disciples spread their
garments and branches of the palm tree in his path to
honor His entrance into Jerusalem. "Blessed is the King
who comes in the name of the Lord!" they exclaimed (Luke 19:38).

On Palm Sunday, we celebrate Jesus Christ's majesty on Earth.
He sought not glory for Himself, but the fulfillment of God's will.
Had He not been declared the King...the Son of God...the
crucifixion and resurrection could not have occurred.

Praise Him this Palm Sunday!

INDUSTRY TRANSITIONS
Where there is adversity, there is opportunity. These are words
to live by and a way to focus on positive things in times of trouble.
Yet, they didn't become catch phrases out of the blue. Generally,
many sayings come from a truism of the past and have been proven
through the years.
The Florida citrus industry has had its share of difficulties,
many we are still working through. Yet, as I look into 2009, there
are so many positive changes being made in our industry, I can't

This week-end the Class of 1959 will celebrate its 50th
reunion and it will bring together classmates who may not have
seen one another since that evening they walked across the stage to
receive their diplomas. No doubt the program will include a time
-that-those in attendance wil-l remember those classmates who are no
longer with them. Names will probably be called out including Pat
Counts. Bill Dickey, Jbhn Dbuthit, Earl Crawley and Mike Crews,
t6'name but a few whose memory will linger long after Friday
eveningg', affair. ,
These high school reunions are happy times for Hardee High
graduates. ManN are elaborate, having the eent held in the,dining
roofn-of.a nearb. hotel and others prefer to have theirs in more
informal surroundings serving up barbeque and swamp cabbage.
Wherever the chosen event ends uptiit most assuredly includes the
hugs, remembrances and even tears of ihoe once so long ago
friends who seemed to lose touch ,oyer the past half century.
It oecuired to me that over the, past many years that class
reunions have come and gone that there were usually programs that
were;.prepared for ,ihe evehing'sfestivities. In many cases, there
were even booklets that included miscellaneous information con-
cerning the, particular class. And many times, there was the tradi-
tional "class photograph" that was taken that evening.
Cracker Trail Mueum includes more than the pioneer items
that once started filling its building space 42 years ago. We are
endeavoring to include other items that make up.the history of
Hardee County. Within our cases are many Hardee High School
memory items, including graduation programs, diplomas and pic-
tures. With the help of former classmates, we would like to increase
tie number of those items that perhaps you were saving but now
feel you no longer choose to store them. If this is the case, please
consider contacting us; so we can include your items so others may
enjoy.
We have collected items including Starlite Drive-In Theatre
coming attraction folders (remember those???), movie ticket stubs,
Senior Sermon programs, report cards, school books and year
books. Of course, the year books that we do have do not cover all
of the years that we would like to have, so those are always wel-
come.,,
We hope you will consider Cracker Trail Museum as you
downsize over the coming years with any Hardee County memora-
bilia, including those items from your high school years and
Reunion Booklets and pictures. Please call the museum at (863)
735-0119 and arrange for your donation to be collected.


help but be optimistic. Change isn't necessarily easy, but, hopeful-
ly, we will look back sometime in the future and believe we have
made wise decisions.
Florida citrus growers will soon have the opportunity to par-
ticipate in a federal referendum designed to rid the industry of
"free-riders." These companies c' trade sectors who receive bene-
fits from Florida-grower paid taxes without contribution, have long
been a point of industry concern. After a year of discussion and
research, the Florida citrus industry is asking the U.S. Secretary of
Agriculture to allow growers to decide through a referendum.
Four options are available to growers:
Create a Federal Order for Citrus Promotion.
Create a Federal Order for Citrus Research.
Create a Federal Order for both Citrus Promotion and Re-
search.
Take no federal action toward fixing the free-rider situation.
The Florida Department of Citrus lost significant financial
input in 2003 when it settled a constitutional challenge of Florida's
juice equalization tax. Importers of orange juice were then able to
"opt-out" of two thirds of the tax declining to support marketing
promotions. Studies show however, the importers do receive bene-
fits from the orange juice promotions.
Growers can benefit from both orders by increasing monies
available for citrus research and citrus promotions. Taxation of
imported juices for the purpose of research will provide an esti-
mated $17 million per year and all citrus growers worldwide will
be helping pay the bill to find an answer for Greening.
Taxation of imported juice for citrus promotions will provide
an estimated $39 million per year for selling orange juice.
Advertisements paid by this funding will no longer state
"Florida,"but if more juice is moved, the Florida grower would
benefit.

State with regulatory authority and taxation power, would most
likely continue to exist. A separate grower tax would pay for its
activities. Let me be perfectly clear this is in no way intended to
create additional Florida grower taxation or expense. I'm comfort-
able in saying the representatives serving on regional and state cit-
rus boards would not allow this to become an additional Florida
grower expense.
It will take an estimated 18 months for growers to receive and
be able to vote on these options for ridding our industry of 'free-
riders". However, it is good to know help is on the way. The new
research foundation will hopefully also bring much-needed relief
to weary growers.
The Citrus Research & Development Foundation, Inc., a direct
service organization through the University of Florida, has been
approved by the University Trustees. The non-profit foundation
will be the research and commercialization arm of the Florida cit-
rus industry.
The Foundation will be overseen by a 13-member board of
directors who are: Bobby Barben, Highlands County Citrus
Growers Association representative; Wes Brumback, Florida Citrus
Commissioner; Joe Davis Jr., Peace River Valley Citrus Growers
Association representative, Dan Gunter, former Executive Director
of the Florida Department of Citrus, Tom Jerkins. Florida Citrus
Mutual board member; Rick Kress, Southern Gardens Citrus
Processing; Marty McKenna, Florida Citrus Mutual board mem-
ber; Jerry Newlin, Orange-Co in Arcadia; Bob Stambaugh, Sharit,
Bunn & Chilton, PA law firm; and Wayne Simmons, Gulf Citrus
Growers Association representative. UF will appoint two addition-
al members and FDACS will chose one.
Challenge to challenge the Florida citrus industry is proving it
will work through adversity. The industry obviously has the deter-
mination and staying power to continue as an important contribu-
tor to our communities and the State of Florida.

Shirley and Gary Hyde on the

SHUFFLEBOARD
Grover Wethington has been
a good sport about being champ

sure did give Ray Moore a run
for his place for. champion.
When the game was over on
Friday, it was Ray Moore and
Trent Swanson being the
champs.
Then came Tuesday. Now,

Reid and Joan Newton. Joan
has been waiting for that for a
long time.
POKENO
On Friday, Connie Akelian
took all the gals' pennies. There
are some days you win and oth-
ers you don't. But carrying all
those pennies can get mighty
heavy and counting them makes
for a big day.
Monday, we saw Janelle Reid
going slowly up the hill to her
trailer and she seemed tired, but
she had a big smile on her face.
She had won all the pennies
from the gals.
Until we meet again this fall,
may God's blessings be with
you all.

Orange Blossom RV News
By Connie Fisher


SJust like other Parks and I
have said before, our residents
are leaving us and going back
North. There will be several of
us left here when all are gone.
But the season is coming to a
close. There are so many activi-
ties that are no longer happen-
ing. Such things as bingo,
karaoke, line dancing, and exer-
cise classes are no longer hap-
pening. The breakfast, coffee
and doughnuts are also not hap-
pening. It seems like every
morning there are two or three
families pulling out. I know it is
happening to all the parks,
because when I am out and
about we see rigs all over U.S.
17.
BREAKFAST
The lastbreakfast we had was
biscuits and gravy. We had a
wonderful time and there were
several residents for breakfast.
We had a packed house. The
last 50/50 was held and Kermit
Paswater and Mary Catozzi
won.
GAMES
Bingo was played for the last
time on Thursday. Karol Wells
won.the special game. It was a


very good night for Peggy
Ardelean. She won the mid-
, coverall and she went on to win
a total of five games that night.
She was threatened with being
thrown in the pool and the lake,
but she just kept on winning. It
was her very lucky night. Lil
Rowland won the final-cover-
all. There were several games
played that night because it was
our last night.
Cribbage was played with the
winners being; first, George
Jarvis, second, Lee Jarvis and
third, Ferd Stahle. Cribbage
will no longer be played.
Pokeno was played with the
winners of the final-coverall
being Janice Benedict and Barb
Clancy splitting the pot.
Nickel-Nickel was played
with winners being; first game,
Dale Bohnett, and second
game, Charlotte Wilson.
DIRECTORY
The Orange Blossom Direct-
ory will be ready in the Fall. If
you want one please let Connie
Fisher know. She will have it
ready for you in the fall. She
will not put it into print until the
fall so she can have it up to date
as close as possible.

Manor Memories
By Gilly Knight o
Marketing and Admissions Director


Spring has sprung and a lot has been happening at the manor
since my last column. Everyone's getting ready for Easter.
We're planning for our Relay for Life team. The event will be
on April 18 here in Wauchula; all of the proceeds raised will go to
the American Cancer Society. This is Hardee Manor's first year
participating in Relay for Life. We are planning our first fundrais-
er on April .11 Hardee Manor with Charlotte's Web 1st Annual
Porker Run 4 Life, this will be a full day of fun and events. If you
would like more information on this, please call me or Mary Steele
773-3231 at Hardee Manor. We are very excited about being part
of such a worthy cause.
.With spring in the air, summer is sure to follow and we all
think about getting in better shape for swimsuit season.
You probably won't see any of our residents in swimsuits, but
they know it's never too late to get into better shape. That's why
they enjoy participating in Lucy Crawford's chair exercise pro-
gram..
Lucy visits the manor twice a week to instruct. The resident's
love to see her. They sing and move to up-beat 80's music.
Lucy is a member of the Eastern Star, a non-profit organiza-
tion that raises money for cancer research and the Shriner's Burn
Center, that also focuses on women's health. Lucy has been a resi-
dent of Hardee County her whole life and has been involved with
the Eastern Star for 45 years. She has a strong love and believes in
Christ and enjoys sharing her energy and love with others. She is
truly a blessing to all of us at Hardee Manor.
If you have a special gift or talent you would like to share with
us, please call me at Hardee Manor 773-3231. May God continue
to bless you.

A half dozen Hardee weight-
lifters continued to exceed their
best lifts.
At a dual meet at DeSoto last
Thursday, Wildcats in several
weight classes moved the scales
a bit, reported Coach Buddy
Martin.
Desoto only had eight lifters,
so it was a pretty even meet;
final results were not available
at press time.
Martin reported, however, on
wins by Jarrius Lindsey, Blada-
mir Caballero and Jonathan
Kelly, each recording a new
personal best.
Lindsey, a sophomore lifting


in the 183-,pound division, con-
tinued to lead the team with a
10-pound increase. He bench-
pressed 280 pound and did 245
in the clean & jerk for a new
525-pound total.
Cabalerro, a sophomore in
the 139-pound division, upped
his total five pounds. He lifted
200 pounds in the bench and
180 in the C&J for a 380-pound
total. Freshman Tony Moreno,
who also lifts in that division,
did his personal best with a 210
bench and 160 C&J for a 370-
pound total.
Kelly, a junior in the 169
division, upped his best total to
430 pounds, getting 225 in the
bench and 205 in the C&J.


Classmate Jake Nowakowski
also lifts in this division, and set
his new best total -of 375
pounds, 185 in the bench and
190 in the C&J.
Two other lifters also had
personal bests. In the 238-
pound division, senior Alex
Lanier moved up to a 470 total
with a 220 bench and 255 C&J.
Soph. Kevin Godwin, a heavy-
weight upped his best to 440,
with a bench of 235 and C&J of
195.
The team will be at sectionals
today (Thursday) in Sebring.
Lifters have to do extremely
well here in order to qualify to
advance to the regionals/state
levels.

A Daily Thought -
THURSDAY
(Solomon said) "I've als6
concluded that whatever
God does, that's the way it's ;
going to be, always. No
addition; no subtraction.
God's done it And that's it.
Ecclesiastes 3:14a (ME)

FRIDAY
You must make allowance
for each other's faults and
forgive the person who
offends you. Remember, the
Lord forgave you, so you
must forgive others.
Colossians 3:13-14 (NLT)

SATURDAY
You made my body, Lord;
now give me sense to heed
Your laws . Now let Your
lovingkindness comfort me,
just as You promised. Sur-
round me with Your tender
mercies, that I may live. For-,
Your word is my delight., i
Psalm 119:73,76-77 (TLB) .

SUNDAY
Owe no one anything,
except to love one another;
for he who loves his neigh-i
bor has fulfilled the law,...
Love does no wrong to a
neighbor; therefore, love is
the fulfilling of the law.
Romans 13:8,10 (RSV)

MONDAY ; i
The Lord God formed man
from the dust of the ground
and breathed into his nos-
trils the breath of life, and
man became a living being.

Now you must repent and
turn to God, so that your sins
may be wiped out, that time
after time your souls may;
know the refreshment that
comes from the presence of
God.
Acts 3:19 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
The words of a good person
are like pure silver, but an
evil person's thoughts are
worth very little. Good peo-
ple's words will help many
others, but fools will die
because_ they don't._haye:
wisd&1. Th-e.Lord's bless-
ings bring wealth, and no
sorrow comes with it.

D.C. TRIP


COURTESY PHOTO
Hardee High junior Denise Montanez is one of four area
students in the 10-county Peace River Electric
Cooperative's service area to be awarded an all-expens-
es-paid week's tour of Washington, D.C. in June and a
$500 college scholarship. Her application and essay was
chosen by the high school faculty for the award. Others
locally are from Avon Park, Fort Meade and Palmetto.
They will join 1,500 other students from electric cooper-
atives around the nation. The tour will educate young
adults about the history and development of rural elec-
trification and its economic impact on rural areas. They
will meet with legislators on Capitol Hill, and visit the
White House, National Cathedral, Washington Memorial,
Holocaust Museum, war memorials and many other
sites. PRECO supports the Youth Tour Program as its way
of giving back to the communities it serves.


Letter To The Editor

Horses, Donkeys Need To Be

Vaccinated Every 6 Months


Dear Editor:
To whom it may concern,
regarding equine owners (hors-
es, mules, donkeys, etc.).. .
Equine Infectious Anemia is
spread by biting insects. Equine
Eastern and Western Encepha-
litis is also spread by biting
insects.
There is no vaccine for EIA,
just a Coggins test for it
required annually in the state of
Florida for movement purposes
on public roads.
However, there is a vaccine
for EEE and WEE and West
Nile Virus. These encephalitis
viruses cause death in equine
every year.
Some owners do not know
their horses need vaccinations


against these diseases (includ-
ing tetanus). Some vaccinate
once yearly against these dead-
ly disease. This is not enough.
The vaccinations only last
eight to nine months, and all the
EEE deaths I have seen recently
have been vaccinated in the
spring or summer of 2008.
Horses need to be vaccinated
twice yearly six months apart
for protection. If you are going
to have a horse, vaccinate twice
yearly and deworm two to four
times yearly.
Call your local veterinarians
with any questions.

Thank you,
P.S. Hayman, DVM

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A proclamation approved
Thursday highlights the local
library's importance to the com-
munity.
It declares the week of April
12-18 as National Library Week
in Hardee County.
County Commissioners ap-
plauded Hardee County Librari-
an Patti Lang and her staff for
the job they are doing despite
staff and fiscal cuts.
During the recently ended
month of March, there were
4,924 items checked out, an
increase of 742 for the same
month last year.
Lang also said that 5,205
people came to the library last
month, an increase of 1,488
over last March.
"The public library saves
lives," she emphasized.


The library is used by college
and school students doing re-
search, with increased use of
the computers available. People
who are unemployed or seeking
to better their situations are also
using the library for job search-
es, as well as self-help, prepar-
ing resumes and similar activi-
ties., using free resources such
as books, magazines, DVDs
and computer and wifi access.
Many people also donate to
the library. One person recently
donated a box full of paper-
backs, which are placed in a
separate place in the library for
people to borrow for as long as
needed.
There is also a "thrift" store
of used books, both donated and
ones too worn to put on the
take-out shelves. Prices are as
low as 25 cents. All proceeds go
to the library for purchase of
