Armed Robbers Hit Grocery Store


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two masked men shot their
way into a locked Wauchula
grocery store after closing
Friday night.
Sweetbay Supermarket, at
1133 U.S. 17 S., was struck by
the thieves at 11:14 p.m., short-
ly after closing for the night,



County


Budget


Grim
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"If we all take a little of the
pain, no one will take all of the
pain."
Commissioner Minor Bryant
summed up his feeling about
the drastic budget reductions
the county is facing, causing
cuts in services to residents and
possible layoffs of employees.
Commissioners called on cit-
izen input, discussion with the
five constitutional officers and
feedback from the - county's
building association to give
them direction on where the
budget cuts need to be made.
Commissioners asked that all
these groups be available for
the commission meeting today
(Thursday) to help them decide
what needs to be done. "It's too
urgent to wait for next month's
planning session. We have to
decide something now," they
said.
They are hopeful the Sheriff,
Property Appraiser, Tax Coll-
ector, Supervisor of Elections
and Clerk of Courts will be able
to cut their budgets three per-
cent as all county departments
have, not once, but repeatedly.
They were talking about the
$1 million shortfall in this
year's budget, coupled with
those expected for the next four
to five years. "They feel it will
be at least 2012 before we can
expect any positive results in
the economic turnaround. If it
happens sooner, it will take that
long before the tax revenue and
other good effects will happen,"
explained County Manager Lex
Albritton.
County department heads
have spent the last three years
gradually reducing more and

Capt. Thomas Harris of the
Wauchula Police Department
said.
Three employees were in the
store at the time. None was
injured in the armed robbery, he
said.
An undisclosed amount of
cash was taken.
Harris said that one employee

was inside the front office of the
store when she heard a loud
bang. The robbers, apparently,
used a shotgun to shoot out the
glass at the bottom of a front
entry door, he described.
Then, the captain went on,
the woman saw two men wear-
ing Halloween masks running
toward the office. One was car-


trying a sawed-off shotgun,
Harris said.
The employee attempted to
get back inside the front office,
only to be followed by the
thieves. As she tried to hide,
one of them grabbed her by the
hair and pulled her back toward
to store safe, saying, "You ain't
leaving (expletive)!"


There, she was ordered to
open the safe and empty its con-
tents into a bag he held.
She gave them cash, but told
them that the safe was on a time
lock that only a manager could
open. With that, the two men
took the money they could get
and ran from the store.
Two other employees hid in

School Employees Get Lower Premium


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The competitive bidding pro-
cess for medical insurance will
result in lower health premiums



JROTC W
By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Herald-Advocate Intern
Hardee Senior High School
has often been the leader in
sports, agricultural activities
and academics. This time, the
school is taking a victory
through the Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps.
Hardee High's JROTC was
one of 393 units in the nation to
be awarded the 2008-09 Air
Force JROTC Distinguished
Unit Award. The local program
was selected out of nearly 900
such curriculums in schools
throughout the country.
The group earned this award
through its performance and
'itswillingness to distinguish the


for school employees.
It also means a switch in car-
riers, to Blue Cross Blue Shield
of Florida.
That was the outcome of an



ins Award
unit through outstanding ser-
vice to not only the school, but
also the community.
JROTC cadets, which include
over 102,000 all over the world,
are trained to become contribut-
ing citizens, promote communi-
ty service, and learn responsi-
bility, integrity and discipline
through character education.
Cadets are also taught the air
and space fundamentals and
other aspects of the United
States military.
Students who would like to
join the ever-growing award-
winning JROTC program are
encouraged to contact Principal
Mike Wilkinson at 773-3181.


insurance workshop held by the
Hardee County School Board
last Thursday. In it, the district's
new broker/agent, Joe Albritton
of Albritton Insurance Services
in Wauchula, explained the
plans presented by bidders and
the costs of their coverage.
Blue Cross was the low bid-
der, at about $150,000 less than
what the district is currently
paying and nearly $500,000
less than what was presented
for 2009-10.
Albritton explained that bids
were solicited from six major
carriers. Banker's Life, Humana
and Aetna declined to bid, each
saying it did not have sufficient
networks in this county, but
"hoped to" by 2010.
Responding to the request for
bids were Cigna, the district's
current carrier, and also United
Health Care and Blue Cross, he
said.
Cigna, which charged the dis-
trict about $4.73 million in pre-
miums for the current year, pro-
posed to raise that amount to


just over $5 million. It came in
the highest of the three bidders.
Blue Cross bid $4.57 million,
or about $150,000 less than
what the district currently pays
and a full $493,718 under
Cigna's new proposal. Its bid
was the lowest.
United Health Care bid $4.63
million.
Albritton further compared
plans for the School Board,
with Blue Cross showing im-
provements in coverage over
what workers currently experi-
ence.
Coinsurance for in-network
health providers will be at 80
percent, with no deductible.
Out-of-network visits, however,
will come in at 50 percent after
a deductible.
Basic lab work, as long as it
is completed in-network, will
be free. Mammograms also can
be had at no charge, the Blue
Cross proposal said.
Prescription drugs will not
deviate from what workers cur-

an upstairs electrical room.
Harris said surveillance
videos captured the two men
before they entered the store,
showing them crossing in front
of the liquor store and walking
east toward the grocery en-
trances. They shot out the west-
ernmost door, he said.

Teen




Not





Guilty

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Hardee County jury has
acquitted a teenager accused of
shooting a. man in a robbery
gone bad.
Jurors deliberated for about
three hours last Thursday after-
noon before finding Tyrell
La'vhone Smith, 18, not guilty
of attempted murder and not
guilty of armed robbery.
The verdict reached by the
three-man three-woman jury
panel was read just before 5
o'clock. It was greeted by
silence from spectators in the
courtroom, who quickly left
their seats and went out into the
lobby. Cheers could then be

Walker


Killed


On 17
By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
An 18-year-old pedestrian
was killed Friday when he was
struck by an oncoming vehicle
while crossing on U.S. 17.
According to Florida High-
way Patrol Cpl. Louis Smith,
the accident occurred around
9:30 a.m. in Bowling Green at
the intersection of the highway
and West Broward Street.
Joel Anthony Thorn, of Lake-
land, was crossing the roadway
from the west shoulder when he
walked out onto the northbound
lane, Smith said.
He was struck by a 2000
Freightliner tractor-trailer, the
FHP report said. According to
Smith, there is no crosswalk
within the area of the crash.
The 55-year-old truck driver,
Phillip Khargie of Sarasota, did
not receive any injuries in the
incident, said Smith.
Khargie was wearing his
seatbelt at the time of the acci-
dent. Smith also said the acci-
dent was not alcohol related.
Thorn became the second
pedestrian to die on a Hardee
County roadway and the fourth
fatality on local roadways so far
this year.
Charges are pending comple-
tion of the accident investiga-
tion, concluded Smith.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


There have been several good rains lately in Hardee County.
The sale of bottled water declined slightly in 2008, airline
magazine Sky reported recently.
The decline was attributed partly to some tests that show bot-
tled water and tap water often taste identical. Another reason is that
the green movement is concerned with millions of plastic bottles
winding up in landfills and the oil/energy needed to make plastic
bottles.
The Hardee High varsity football team will have an Orange-
Blue intrasquad game Friday at 7 p.m. at Wildcat Stadium.
Head coach Tim Price reports 54 boys are out for the team,
which will also include some junior varsity players.
The team and school are selling BBQ meal tickets for $6.
The oil industry was at it again this week. On Tuesday the
price of crude oil went up a little. On Wednesday morning the price
of unleaded regular gasoline in Wauchula rose four cents to $2.310
a gallon.
It is odd, but when crude oil prices fall the price of gas does
not come down the next day.
President Barack Obama met with chief executives of the Big
Three this week and is pushing for more fuel efficiency and less
greenhouse gas emissions.
The new goal is to have vehicles average 35.5 miles per gallon
by 2016 with passenger cars at 39 mpg and light trucks at 30 mpg.
This could add $1,300 to the price of a vehicle, but would pay for
itself in three years, reported Steveri Hurst of The Associated Press
in the Lakeland Ledger.
The purpose is to reduce our dependency on foreign oil and
help the environment.
Florida has six rich counties in the top 50 of highest per capi-
ta income counties in the U.S., reports Mike Schneider of The
Associated Press in the Ledger. The five richest counties were in
Wyoming, New York, Texas, Colorado and California, ranging
from $132,000 to $91,000.
In Florida Collier County ranked No. 20 at $63,200; No. 25,
Martin County, $61,800; No. 27 Monroe County, $61,200; No. 30,
Indian River County, $59,400; No. 33, Palm Beach County,
$59,100; and No. 46, Sarasota County, $55,500.
Wauchula citrus grower Joe L. Davis Sr. is concerned that the
per capital consumption of orange juice in the U.S. has declined
since 1997-98 form 5.8 gallons to a projected 3.8 gallons this year.
Florida growers produce the greatest orange juice in the world
and need a strong marketing plan to allow them to continue to grow
the oranges and make a reasonable return on their investment, he
wrote in a recent letter to Ken Keck, executive director of the
Florida Department of Citrus.
If anyone has ideas on how to increase orange juice consump-
tion, please contact Keck in Lakeland or Wauchula's Ben Albritton,
chairman of the Florida Citrus Commission.

Harris said investigating offi-
cers used a dog to track the sus-
pects' path. They fled south to
Hardee Ranch Supply, he said,
where they apparently had
parked a car. They then got into
that vehicle and left the scene.
Meanwhile, he said, they
dropped much of the cash they
had stolen. Harris said about
half of the stolen money has
been recovered.


That premium will go down to
$430. Cigna would have raised
it to $484, and United wanted
$443.
An employee with spouse
will be $891, employee with
children $809 and an employee
with family, $1,367. Each of
those amounts is a savings over
the district's current plan.
The new coverage will take
affect on July 1.
Board member Mildred
Smith was pleased with the
increased benefits for employ-
ees at a reduced cost.
"I'm overwhelmed at the
amount of savings," board
member Jan Platt agreed.
Board Chairman Wendell
Cotton asked Albritton about
claim processing with Blue
Cross. Albritton noted that his
job will be to work with em-
ployees and the insurance com-
pany, smoothing problems as
they arise.
With that, the board, meeting
in regular, session, voted unani-
mously to accept Blue Cross
Blue Shield's bid for the 2009-
10 school year.

That release would be tem-
porarily delayed, however, by
other unrelated charges pending
against Smith, petit theft and
burglary of a conveyance. Cir-
cuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle set
Smith's bond for those charges
at $500, a reduction in the stan-
dard,bond but allowed at the
petitioning of Assistant Public
Defender Mel McKinley.
Then, Ezelle addressed
Smith, noting, "You have par-
ticipated in an extremely impor-
tant case, in which you were at
high risk. You are released. This
is the way the process works."
With that, Smith left the
courtroom to head back to the

out and able to go home.
It had been four days of trial,

bing Daniels.

during Phase III on a first-
come, first served basis from 10
a.m. July 7 until all permits are
sold. People who purchased a
permit in Phase I or II may
apply for additional permits
during Phase III.
Successful applicants must
submit payment for an alligator
trapping license and two alliga-
tor harvest tags, or provide
proof of a valid alligator trap-
ping license (must be valid
through Nov. 1) and pay the fee
for two harvest tags.
No other hunting licenses are
required.
The cost for an alligator trap-
ping license and alligator har-
vest tags is $271.50 for Florida
residents. Non-residents pay
$1,021.50. The cost for each
additional alligator hunting per-
mit is $61.50, regardless of res-
idency. All fees are non-refund-


able.
An alligator trapping agent
license is also available for
$51.50, which allows the
license holder to assist permit-
ted trappers taking alligators.
The alligator hunting season
will run 11 consecutive weeks
from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1.
To educate participants on the
how-to's and rules and regula-
tions of the hunts, the FWQ

training and orientation pro-
gram, which is held at various
locations throughout th6 state.
Permit recipients are not re-
quired to attend, but first-time
participants are strongly en-
couraged to do so.
Courses will be offered, in
July and August, and permit
holders will receive, by mail,

WEATHER SUMMARY
High temperatures last week were in the upper 80s to mid-90s.
Lows were mostly in the 60s. Average temperatures were 3 to 5
degrees above normal. Rain came to much of the State, with
Highlands County reporting over 4 inches. Lake, Orange, Hardee,
and Jackson counties recorded between 3 and 4 inches of rain.
Most other areas collected 1 to 3 inches of rainfall.
FIELD CROPS
Peanut planting was 40 percent completed. Cotton planting
also took place in areas where the soil was moist enough.
Washington County reported very dry conditions that prevented
tilling and planting; however, small grain combining proceeded.
Rain in Santa Rosa County may delay winter wheat harvest. Potato
harvesting remained active. The quality of potatoes in Flagler
County may be affected by recent heavy rains. Soil moisture con-
ditions were very short to adequate in the central and southern
regions. The Panhandle and Big Bend areas had short to adequate
soil moisture levels.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
The pasture and cattle condition slightly improved from the
previous week. In the Panhandle, pasture condition was poor to
excellent with most fair to good. Cattlemen were feeding hay.
Cattle condition was poor to excellent with most in good condition.
Cattle were experiencing heat stress. In the northern areas, pasture
was in very poor to excellent condition with most poor to fair due
to drought. In the central areas, pasture was in very poor to good.
condition with most very poor to poor due to extreme drought.
Supplemental hay feeding was active with hay supplies short.
Pasture condition in the southwest was very poor to good with most
poor to fair. Pasture condition improved in many places with grass
greening and beginning to grow. Statewide,,cattle condition was
very pdor to excellent with most fair to good.

PAPER PROJECT


COURTESY PHOTOS
Wauchula Elementary School has instituted a paper recycling program, inspired by
third-grade teacher Greg Cazzola. After learning about the recycling process, students
wanted to make a difference in their
own school and community, so they
created recycling bins out of card-
board boxes to place in each class-
room and office area. Each Friday, stu-
dents empty the bins into large trash
cans that are picked up by parent vol-
unteer Julie Ellis, who transports the
paper to a recycling site in Avon Park.
CF Industries donated funds to pur-
chase permanent recycling bins. Pic-
tured above is Cazzola and his third-
grade class by some of the bins. Pic-
tured middle is third-grader Cody Ellis
S with his mother. Pictured below, Caz-
'* zola received a check from CF Indus-
tries representative Calli Skipper.

more of their expenses, not re-
placing equipment, "using duct
tape," said Janice Williams,
budget and finance director,
speaking in behalf of the dozen
or more department heads in the
audience behind her.
She said the county could not
keep taking money out of the
departments, which are already
stretched thin. Over 30 posi-
tions have been lost already,
most of them by attrition, not
,replacing an employee who
retires or resigns.
If spending continues at its
present rate, there will be no
cash carryover when the new
fiscal year starts Oct. 1.
-Usually, two to three months
revenue is carried forward to
keep the county operating until
the ad valorem or property
taxes start coming in.
"Whatever we do, the com-
munity needs to understand
why the road is rough is hasn't
been graded, why other services
are not provided," said Bryant.
"It's not just our county, it's
state, national, global," he com-
mented.
"Everyone must be willing to
sacrifice. Everyone needs to
shoulder some of the pain," said
Bryant who attended a Thurs-
day meeting in Manatee County
outlining the positives and neg-
atives of the state budget.
"There were a few positives,"
he said: The county will re-
ceived no direct federal stimu-
lus monies but will get what it
does through state and federal
grants.
One positive was restoration
of the state grants for trans-
portation projects, paving or
resurfacing roads, bridge work
and the like. Another was antic-
ipated $3 million state revenue
Son taxes for cigarettes, liquor
and gaming. This will increase
the county's portion of Shared
Revenue tax dollars.
Fiscally constrained small
county monies were restored in
the budget as was the Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice monies
Hardee County would other-
wise have to pay for delinquent
and .dependent youth.
State housing grants will be
directed' more to first-time
homebuyers and not necessarily
limited to the most impover-
ished residents.
Williamson warned that con-
tinuing to put off replacing
needed equipment. "It's getting
dangerous to not keep up the


county's assets," she said. Re-
pairs and upkeep can cost as
much as a schedule of replace-

the lease oflinew engine for the
fire department is included in
its budget, which is one of the
most stable.

cuts can't be made, said com-
missioners said as they talked

voluntary shorter workweeks

ployee is out, another employee
called in may have to be paid
time-and-a-half.
Discussion will continue at
today's meeting and subsequent
meetings leading up to the
annual week in July of budget
planning for the next fiscal year.

Florida Hospital Wauchula has recently purchased a new 16-slice CT scanner. The new
machine is capable of performing every CT scan except cardiac scans. Hardee County
residents will now be able to have these procedures done at the local hospital Instead
of traveling to neighboring counties. The scanner has a large gantry opening making
it comfortable for patients up to 500 pounds. Standing by the machine during a May
19 open house are Emily Harrison of Hardee Family Medicine; Diane Douglas, imaging
supervisor for Florida Hospital Wauchula; and Zbig Nawrocki, director of ancillary ser-
vices with Florida Hospital Heartland Division.

Since May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month,
here are some reasons why teenage childbearing deserves contin-
ued attention:
* Children of teen mothers are at higher risk of having
learning and behavior problems in school; sons are
more likely to end up in prison.
* Teen mothers are more likely to drop out of high
school and never graduate, relying on public assis-
tance to survive and living in poverty.
* In 2001, 82 percent of teen pregnancies were unin-
tended at the time of conception, compared with only
18 percent that were intended.
* Teen mothers are more likely to give birth to a sec-
ond child further compromising her health and the
health of the baby.
* The majority of teen births occur outside of mar-
riage to teens in all racial/ethnic groups. Among teens
who do marry, their marriages tend to be short-lived.
The teen birth rate had declined every year from 1991 to 2005,
but has climbed steadily since then. This reinforces the need for
vigilance to ensure that gains made in reducing the teen birth rate
are not later lost and to ensure this rate will continue going down
for the future of our children.
If you or someone you know are interested in getting involved
in local efforts to prevent risky behaviors and help lower pregnan-
cy rates among unmarried teens in Hardee County, come to the
Teen Pregnancy Prevention Alliance and Drug Prevention
Coalition meetings. These meetings are held on the second
Tuesday of every month. Call the Hardee County Extension
Service office at 773-2164 for more information on time and loca-
tion.
You can help make a difference!

Hunters: Apply For Quota


Permits Beginning June 1


The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission will
be accepting applications June
1-30 from those wanting to be
included in a random drawing
for quota permits to hunt on
wildlife management areas next
season.
On many WMAs, quota per-

Utility


Bills Up


InZS
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Starting with next month's
billing cycle, utility customers
in the town of Zolfo Springs
will be paying more money.
The Town Commission has
approved a 2.55 percent rate
increase for both residential and
commercial accounts. The
boost is in keeping with the
Florida Public Service
Commission's current index.
It means about 90 cents more
for the minimum bill.
"We're already paying too
much," resident Lester Bates
objected as commissioners con-
sidered the resolution adopting
the adjustment.
Mayor George Neel
explained that the town must,
by rule, keep sufficient rates in
place to cover the costs of oper-
ation. The utilities may not run
in the red, he said.
Still, residents were unhappy
with the boost ini their bills for
water, sewer and garbage ser-
vices, with Linda Curranco
complaining that her meter "is
not being read half the time."
A minimum residential bill
will go from the current $52.45
a month to $53.35. After the
first 3,000 gallons are used.

\, For commercial accounts, the
minimum bill for water and

$1.10.


season as well as for other
hunts, including the archery and
muzzleloading gun seasons.
Quota permits are also required
for hunts involving airboats,
track vehicles, youths, families
and mobility-impaired persons.
Major changes beginning this
year to the quota program make
quota hunt permits nontransfer-
able, including permits for
hunts specifically for mobility-
impaired persons. This change
is to help ensure a fairer distrib-
ution of permits among hunters.
In addition, the FWC estab-
lished a guest permit so quota
permit holders can take some-
one hunting with them, if the
guest applies under the quota
permit holder's customer iden-
tification number.
Worksheets are available
under "Limited Entry 'Hunts" at


MyFWC.com/hunting. They
also will be available from
county tax collectors' offices,
license agents and FWC region-
al offices.
To apply, take a worksheet to
any license agent or tax collec-
tof's office or go online at
wildlifelicense.com from 10
a.m. June 1 through midnight
June 30.
Worksheets for recreational
use permits are available at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
The FWC will issue recreation-
al use permits on a first-come,
first-served basis from 10 a.m.
on June 4 through March 31,
2010.

Club Collects Old

Ink Cartridges


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Herald-Advocate
Save the planet, one ink car-
tridge at a time, and help raise
money for the Future Business
Leaders of America.
The Hardee Senior High
School FBLA has found a new
way to "go green" and raise
money for conferences and
workshops, said club adviser
Julie Barnett. The goal of the
program is that the club will not
have to ask businesses for
money but instead donations
would be made by recycling
office items.
This is the first time the high
school's FBLA has tried the
program, Cartridges for Kids.
"This program is good be-
cause it enhances the students'
relationships with the commu-
nity and local businesses, since,
that's what FBLA is about,"
said Barnett.
The club began collecting
back in October from students'
households and various busi-
,nesses. The students not onlyl,
collect printer cartridges, they
also gather used cell phones,
video-game consoles, Global
Positioning Systems (GPS),
iPods, DVD movies and more.
"By collecting stuff like plas-
tic and toners we are preventing
damage done to the environ-
ment," said Barnett.
So far the 33-member club
has managed to collect six
boxes full of items. When they


have 100 or more empty car-
tridges, Barnett will mail the
itemsoff to a company which
sorts through it all and finds
what it can keep. Then, it sends
money back to FBLA. Some of
the items that will not be recy-
cled will be refurbished.
As of right now, Barnett says
that the boxes of collected items
will bring in $25.
"This is not going to be big
money, but the more people that
donate, the better off the club
is," she said.
Another reason collecting
toner cartridges is important to
the club, according to Barnett,
is because it relates to the busi-
ness world and students need
to see that being' part of the
business world involves main-
taining equipment and recy-,
cling it.
Barnett is not new to the pro-
gram. She taught for 12 years in
Highlands County, where she
used Cartridges for Kids and
found, it successful.
� We TldB any fere from
$ '50 to. AO0 in a lIle. school
year," she said.
She plans to continue the pro-
gram at the high school and is
encouraging students to still
collect throughout the summer.
The community can donate
through the summer as well by
dropping off items to the front
office of the school or contact-
ing Barnett by e-mail at jbar-
nett@hardee.kl2.fl.us.

OVER THE

FENCE
By: Dr. Ross A. Hendry,
DVM


We will be closing Pet Care Cente'r May 22nd and will no
longer do business as a full-service small animal clinic. I.will
continue to treat dogs for heartworm disease and provide den-
tal care for dogs and cats by appointment only. I will be avail-
able by phone to recommend other establishments for health-
care for your pets. Grooming by Pat Roberts will still be avail-
able by appointment.
I left Wauchula June 10, 1959 to attend the University'of
Florida to pursue by pre-vet education and later attended
Auburn University. Nine years of university level preparation
allowed me to fulfill by childhood dream.
Practicing veterinary medicine has been my passion to a
fault for 41 years. I am better known as a cattle specialist,
because of my efforts on advisory committees for several large
drug companies. In that capacity I was taken to Europe,
Mexico, Caribbean Islands, and all over the U.S. to places I
may have never seen. I even managed a six-day trip down the
Grand Canyon on a river raft and took in the wonders of nature
and Father Time.
I was a director in the Academy of Veterinary Consultants
for five years. In-that five-year period of time I met most of the
top feedlot and beef cattle veterinarians in this county and a
few other counties.
I spent 20 years as a dairy consultant for large dairies in
South Florida. Quite frankly, my 20-year tenure at Larson
Dairy in Okeechobee was the most challenging time of my
professional career and contributed to my growth and devel-
opment more than any other endeavor.
Over the last nine years at Pet Care Center, the first 10
hours of every day have been fun. Six weeks ago, it ceased to
be. In the country we say, "I lost the fire in my belly."
I will be available by phone or on location at our clinic,
which will operate as Pet Vet Vaccination Clinics Inc. I can
truly say that I love critters and the people that go with them.
Hopefully I'll get back to writing. Even though I have
struggled to get it done, people seem to enjoy the end product.
.1 am sure my former editors will sleep well knowing that
Spessard Stone has agreed to assist me in that area.
My son Clinton has been gone for two months and I have
not seen his children since he moved. My grandchildren in
Washington have not seen their grandfather for 15 months. I
obviously need to take better care of the business of being a
grandfather.
When my wife Suzan came home from her last visit to
Utah she talked nonstop for four hours a day for two days. On
the third day I mentioned that I had never heard her talk so
much. She paused to look at me with a painful look and replied
-that-Iwasnever-home and she doesn't have anyone to talk to.
With more free time maybe I could become a better husband
and companion.
I believe God has other plans for me. I solicit your
prayers.
Thank You!

JROTC Program At HHS


Earns Stellar Ranking


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Herald-Advocate Intern
Hup 2, 3, 4. Hup 2, 3, 4!
The Air Force Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps students at Hardee
Senior High School have been marching
to a different beat since achieving a
near perfect score on their program
examination.
The local JROTC, which was formed
in 2005 as the fifth unit in Florida,
recently had to undergo a strict inspec-
tion by Col. John R.Vick, the area
administrator.
The inspection included an analysis
of how the school was complying with
Air Force rules, equipment and resource
management and maintenance, money
management, and the maintenance of all
uniforms and computers. Also under
scrutiny was classroom time, and
whether teachers are teaching the cur-
riculum the military has formed.
Vick arrived at Hardee Senior High
early in the morning to be greeted by
the entire JROTC dressed in uniform
and raising the American flag in a mili-
tary salute in his honor.
Three years prior to this visit, the
colonel was not impressed by the condi-
tion of the program at Hardee Senior
High School. However, after seeing the
passion and drive in both the instructors
and the cadets, he ranked the school's
program as now exceeding the stan-
dards.
The JROTC also received no "write-
ups," which meant it would not have to
be reinspected three months later. Not
only did the class receive almost perfect
scores in all areas, Vick also requested
that headquarters give them credit for
the overall appearance of the room.
"He told us that he came here
inspecting a different unit. He was
amazed at the improvements, and it lit-
erally watered his eyes," says Master
Sgt. Veronica J. Scott, an aerospace sci-
ence instructor.
Along with impressing Vick, the
JROTC class also has impressed Hardee
County with its community service.
The class has participated in various


The automobile is the most
recycled consumer prod-
uct in the world today.


events, such as marching in the Martin
Luther King Day Parade, marching in
the annual Christmas parade, perform-
ing at home football games, and partici-
pating in a campus-wide cleanup.
Each cadet who enters the classroom
is being taught not only the guidelines
of the military, but also the guidelines
for life.
"We want students to be successful
in whatever they do in life. We have
high expectations of them. They learn
life lessons including leadership and
team work," notes Lt. Col. Tony Hingle,
senior aerospace science teacher.
Although the JROTC passed its
inspection with flying colors, the pro-
gram needs a certain amount of students
each year in order to continue.
Students are encouraged to sign up
for this class for the upcoming school
year. Cadets will be given the opportu-
nity to go on exciting field trips, such as
touring Washington, D.C., and flying at
MacDill Air Force Base. The students
even had the chance to go onboard a
KC-135 Tanker Orientation Flight.
Not only do the cadets get to go on
memorable trips, but they also earn
credit for high school. Anyone who
joins the program will receive the
required leadership credits for gradua-
tion.
Students are also eligible for numer-
ous scholarships after completing the
JROTC program.
There is no military obligation or
commitment when signing up for this
class. There is also no physical disci-
pline used by the instructor or by fellow
cadets,
"I believe that students should join
the class because it teaches them how to
be responsible and how to become lead-
ers," says one of the cadets, serioi
Bradley Adcox, in encouragement to
others.
"We also have a lot of fun field trips
that we take all year. I think it is an all
around great program, and has really
changed my life for the better," he con-
cludes.


What we frankly give, for-
ever is our own.
-Granville


Cadets are responsible for raising the American flag each morning and lowering it
every afternoon at the front entrance of the campus.


Select students from the JROTC program had the opportunity to venture to
Washington, D.C., on one of the many field trips the cadets go on throughout the year.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Aip't this rain good?! We got
three inches the first afternoon
of the now "rainy season."
James and Michele Crawley
Yeomans live in front of us, and
they have a freshly plowed pas-
ture that looked like a big lake
after the three inches of rain. It
didn't take long for it to soak in,
but there is nothing prettier than
a good freshly plowed piece of
dirt! Now that is the farmer, or
farming heritage, that is speak-
ing!
Joyce, Danny and Connie
Coker spent a recent weekend
in Memphis visiting their
daughter and granddaughter,
Amber. Joyce said she felt lots
better about her living in this
big city now that she had seen
her home, met people, etc.
This is typical of a grandmoth-
er's concern and love.
Amber is a traffic controller
at the Memphis airport. Joyce
said they got the VIP treatrhent
and were allowed in the control


tower and listened to instruc-
tions given to planes arriving
and departing. On their return-
home flight, when everyone
was in their seats the captain
came qver. the intercom and
said, "This is your captain
speaking! I am going to let you
all listen to Amber Coker as she
gives us directions from the
control tower. Her parents,
Danny and Connie Coker, and
her grandmother, Joyce Coker,
are flying with us on this trip to
Tampa! Welcome aboard!"
Joyce said everyone applauded
and treated them like celebri-
ties. She reports a terrific trip.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to Heather Walker and
family on the death of her
grandfather.
It is unbelievable but Judy
McQuaig and family celebrated
son Dakoda's first birthday last
Saturday afternoon with a party
at the Fort Green church fellow-
ship hall. She originally plann-
ed a home party but was afraid

the afternoon showers would

older son, Alex, turned 4 on
April 20. Happy birthday wish-
es to both of these fine boys!
David McQuaig will be leav-
ing Tuesday for another tour of
duty in Afghanistan. Please
remember to pray for David.
The new fellowship hall was
well-decorated with memora-
bilia from the '50s for the party
after the p.m. services last
Sunday. Some original '50s
items were part of the decora-
tion. Everyone seemed to have
a good time and listened to
music from the '50s as Lee
Chancey took dedications and
emceed and all enjoyed the hot
dogs with trimmings, bottled
Cokes, banana splits, hot fudge
sundaes, root beer or Coke
floats!
The working waiter youth
wore paper hats reminiscent of
the soda jerk caps from the '50s.
Brianna Waters took top honors
in the hula-hoop contest. K-
Lynn Simpson, Kasie Powell,
Kaylee Hogenauer, Norma Ale-
jandro and Makayla Chancey
all wore poodle skirts! There
were plenty of youth working
as they waited on the adults.
It was a really fun night! Abby
Duke missed the fun as she was
sick at home and not able to
attend.
Fort Green had a visiting pas-
tor last Sunday and will again
this Sunday. For you who have
not been able to attend church
lately, please try and come lis-
ten and meet this preacher.
The church is considering ex-
tending the call to him to lead
our church.
Bob Schreese and Gordon
Yost from Reader, W. Va.,
stopped by to see Randy and
Faye Davis, Norma Alejandro
and Edith Bassett for a night.
They were on their way to
Okeechobee to hog hunt. Can
you believe that they wanted to
kill a big boar and came to
Florida to fulfill their dream!
They were successful, and
loved all the moss hanging from
our trees. They pulled some to
take home with them. I have
always been told beauty is in
the eyes of the beholder! Of
course, this moss is pretty and
typical of the South.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to Donald and Earl
Bargeron and their families on
the death of their mother. She
took her final journey last
Saturday aftepoon.
Please pray for one another
and our country. Call me with
any news.

Your wealth is where your
friends are.

WayBack-When


Cowboy-Up Ministry Is 2 Years Old


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

75 Years Ago
School teachers for the pri-
mary and elementary schools
and Hardee'High School were
confirmed by the School Board
at a special meeting on Thurs-
day. There were few changes in
the 35 teachers approved, as
well as a motion that no one
with a third-grade certificate
would be hired as long as teach-
ers with higher certificates were
available.

Summer school in all subjects
will be offered at the high
school for those who were defi-
cient during the regular term.
The summer school will run for
eight weeks. Tuition will be $10
per half credit of work.

Friday was the last day to
qualify for the June primary
elections. The close of the day
found 31 candidates, 16 for
major-offices and 15 for places
on the Democratic and Republi-
can committees of the county
and state.

Manufacture of Florida auto-
mobile tags for .1935 will be
started soon at the State Prison
Farm at Raiford. The 1934 tags
were made with a theft-proof
lock device attached. It has not
been decided if the 1935 lags
will have that device. The new
plates will be painted a grape-
fruit yellow with black letter-
ing.

50 YEARS AGO
A softball game, a barbecue
supper of chicken or mullet and
swamp cabbage, and dedication
ceremony are planned for
tomorrow night in Bowling
Green, At a ceremony before
the game, the city will dedicate
its new lighted softball diamond
and name it for W.S. Pyatt, who
has been a physician in
Bowling Green for over 50


I,
(


years.

The paving of more than 20
blocks of sand streets of
Wauchula has been proposed by
the City Council and, barring
difficulties, paving will begin in
six weeks. Paving with an oil
and sand mixture, charged
against the city's share of the
road and bridge tax, will be
about $3,500. The city's share
of the tax is about $5,500.

Prices and quantity were up
last week as the Hardee Live-
stock Market had its biggest
sale so far this year. A total of
1,060 head of cattle brought 69
cents a hundred weight more
than the previous week. Prices
on steers, heifers, calves, cows
and bulls varied from $15 to
$27.25. Parnell Estates of Zolfo
Springs topped the market with
a $39.75 a hundred weight calf.

A fire leveled the machine
shop and part of the boiler room
at Mancini Packing in Zolfo
Springs last week. A lucky
wind, blowing in the opposite
direction, kept the flames from
the main plant. It was back in
operation this week using
portable equipment.

Two building permits were
issued this week. The larger, for
$350, went to Nicholson
Supply Co. for the construction
of a shed on the railroad site of
the lumber yard. The other, for
$75, was issued to Tom Spear-
man for repairs on a home on
South Seventh Avenue.

Wauchula Motor Sales on
South Fifth Avenue offers ex-
tras on a new 1959 Ford Fair-
lane 500, "a beautifully propor-
tioned car." An aluminized
muffler lasts twice as long. Its
body finish never needs waxing
and the standard high-capacity
battery offers surer starting.
With air-conditioning, you can
save $219.85 over any competi-
tor's prices.

Heine lamented,."The old air-
port was supposed to be closed
the end of February and here it
is mid-May. We need to get
those planes out." The new city
airport on Vandolah Road
opened in September 1983, and
pilots were given until Feb. 29
to move. Yet six or seven
remain. The council has begun
discussing what to do with the
old airport property on SR 636.

Watermelons were bringing
in 8-10 cents a pound on Tues-
day, which is a good price.
Douberly & Durrance began
cutting melons for market on
Monday. Benny Albritton, with
J.P. Carlton Farms, said they
will start cutting Saturday. He
said the weather has been good
for maturing melons.

Tuesday morning, the Hardee
County Commission met in
special session to decide what
to do with $1.1 million in
estreated bonds on alleged pot
smugglers. Seven men charged
in the 1980 Gardner marijuana-
smuggling case jumped bail
May 1, 1981, when they failed
to show up for trial.

Century 21/Davis & Roberts
Real Estate has a 3BR concrete
block home on one acre, chain-
link fence and barn, close to
town for $40,000. Charles L.
Shackelford offers a lovely
frame home, 3BR, 2BA, coun-
try kitchen, oak floors for
$45,000. F.L. Revell Inc. has a
3 BR, 2BA with carpet, fire-
place, two-car carport in prime
location for $55,000.

10 YEARS AGO
Wauchula police spokesman
Lt. William Beattie explained
the raid early Tuesday morning
in which a stash of marijuana
was found in an underground
bomb shelter. The 10x30 room
was empty except for a pile of
plastic bags on the floor holding
nine bags of marijuana. In all,.
officers confiscated 10 pounds
of the drug with a street value of
$8,000 to $10,000, he said.

The 600,000-square-foot
YMCA addition opened Mon-
day amid a bit of controversy.
A multitude of new workout
equipment is available, but the
question arose about the use of
the outdoor basketball courts.
Several claimed it was a way to
keep youth occupied evenings,
and they should not be forced to
have a membership just to play
basketball. YMCA leaders said
a $7 monthly membership was
less expensive than $1 per night
two evenings a week.

Upcoming changes at the his-
toric Hardee County Court-
house have some people unhap-
py. There will be reroofing of
the 1920s building, with re-
moval of rooftop air condition-
ing units and replacing them
with ground level air handlers.
Third-floor renovations, will
include two courtrooms, judi-
cial assistant, witness and jury
rooms and a security ramp at
the south side of the building.

Several local churches are
announcing summer camp and
Vacation Bible School activi-
ties. SonCastle Faire will be
held at Bowling Green First
United Methodist Church. Faith
Temple has summer day camp
for ages 6-11, with weekly out-
ings and field trips in addition
to daily activities. Christian
Heritage will have a summer
program.


God and horses, that is what
Cowboy-Up Ministry has been
about every Sunday for the last
two years.
Seventeen people were bap-
tized at a two-year reunion held
on April 26. The reunion also
featured a barbecue with chick-
en, ribs, corn on the cob and
much more.
Team members gave found-
ers Skipper and Kathy Calder a
homemade plaque for their
work in the ministry. On the
bottom of the plaque is
Cowboy-Up Ministry's theme
verse, from Ephesians 2:8-10:
"For it is by grace you have
been saved, through faith -
and this not from yourselves, it
is the gift of God - not by
works, so that no one can boast.
For we are God's workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus to do
good works, which God pre-
pared in advance for us to do."
Over 100 people enjoyed the
music of Branded Heart, a
gospel group from Bushnell.
Calder delivered a message
while training a huge white
horse, a Persheron, weighing
about 1,800 pounds.
Many people brought their
horses for a trail ride on the
D.T. Davis Ranch after church
and lunch. For those without
horses, there was a ride on
Roger and Judy Nickerson's
wagon drawn by two large
Belgium horses.
The ministry was started by
Skipper Calder and the Cow-
boy-up Ministry Team to reach
people who love God but do not
feel comfortable in a church
building.
The "building" they use each
Sunday is an open arena, with a


pole barn, at the Cracker Trail
Arena owned by Mike and
Betsy Damboise. Using horse
training techniques with bibli-
cal principles, Calder illustrates
how God is trying to train us.
The vision of Cowboy-up
Ministry is to "spread the Good
News" and "the power to live
it."
Calder also travels through-
out Florida helping people
improve their relationships with
their horses, family and God.


Calder says, "Life is all ab6ut
relationships, whether with
your horse, child, spouse or
Jesus Christ". For one or 1,000,
Calder will travel spreading
God's love and his knowledge
of horses.
For more information about
this ministry, contact Calder at
781-2281, e-mail him at horse-
ministry@yahoo.com, or visit
the Web sites www.cowboyup-
ministry.com or www.cracker-
trailarena.com

Citrus

Crop

Unchanged
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) has released its
May orange forecast for the
2008-09 season showing no
change to the 157.6 million box
crop.
"As the season winds down,
Florida has produced another
quality citrus crop," said
Michael W. Sparks, executive
VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "Although citrus grow-
ers are facing a lot of chal-
lenges, mainly from a disease
known as citrus greening, one
thing consumers can count on is
quality orange juice from
Florida."
The early and midseason
orange crop remained un-
changed with an estimate of
84.6 million boxes, while the
Valencia projection remained at
73 million boxes this season.
The USDA reduced the
Florida grapefruit projection by
500,000 boxes to 22.5 million
for the 2008-2009 season.
Colored grapefruit accounted
for the full change with 15.5
million, down from the 16 mil-
lion announced in April. White
grapefruit showed no change at
seven million boxes.
Florida specialty fruit also
saw a decrease. Tangelos
dropped 50,000 to 1.15 million
boxes and tangerines were
down 100,000 to 3.9 million
boxes. The yield for from-con-
centrate orange juice (FCOJ) is
expected to average 1.65 gal-
lons per 90-pound box, up from
1.64 gallons.
Visit www.nass.usda.gov/-
Statisticsby_State/Florida/Pub
lications/Citrus/cpfp.htm for
the complete USDA estimate.
The USDA makes the initial
forecast in October and then
revises it monthly until the end
of the season in July. In 2007-
2008, Florida harvested 170.2
million boxes of oranges.

Make yourself necessary
to somebody.

PAPER PICKUPS


COURTESY PHOTO
Hardee Senior High School received a special delivery one recent Friday as two pickup trucks pulled into the park-
ing lot. Principal Mike Wilkinson stepped outside to meet the CF Industries' employees, who donated two pallets of
copy paper to the school. Due to a budget crunch, copy paper was in short supply, and teachers were in need of
paper for their classrooms. According to school office manager Angie Coker, "This amount of paper should last the
rest of this school year and into the next!" Shown with the loaded trucks are (from left) Calli Skipper, Bobbie Barker,
Wilkinson and Bob Klobuchar.


For the week ended May 14, 2009
At the Florida Livestock Auctions, receipts totaled 7,631,
compared to 8,225 last week, and 6,680 a year ago. According to
the Florida Federal-State Livestock Market News Service:
Compared to last week: Slaughter cows and bulls were steady to
1.00 higher, feeder steers and heifers were steady to 2.00 higher.

SFish Busters
S-.,.'.- By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission

STHE FUTURE OF FRESHWATER FISHING
When you cast a lure in Florida, you are participating in a
time-honored tradition in the Sunshine State. Today we all share
responsibility for conserving our fisheries and for passing that
angling tradition along to our youth.
Some things such as climate change and population explosions
may seem out of our hands but, individually, we all can do some-
thing to keep those fish biting even through challenging times.
Perhaps even more than ever, we all could benefit from the plea-
sures of fishing, watching the sun glisten on the water and hearing
a fish strike a topwater plug.
With the population in Florida hovering around 19 million, the
Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission faces amazing
challenges as it strives to manage freshwater fisheries for their
long-term well-being and the benefit of all those people.
The population is increasing by nearly a thousand people per
day, and by 2060, Florida is predicted to have 36 million residents.
A study published by 1000 Friends of Florida suggests that
seven million acres of natural or rural land will be converted to
urban use by 2060. The report notes that the governor, state legis-

Dear Editor:
My family and I moved to
Wauchula from Bradenton
about 30 years ago. We built a
home in Golfview Estates.
We were always aware that
we had a fire department avail-
able. However, on April 27 we
were ve-ry glad' wve had one.
This was prior to the rains, and
everything was very dry.
We arrived home about noon
and found that the wooded area
beside our home was ablaze.
We could see the fire in the tops


of 30-foot trees.
We called 911 and the fire
department had trucks there in
less than 10 minutes. They also
transported two dozers to help
contain the fire.
By quick professional work,
they averted what could have
been a major central Florida
fire, as it was a dry, windy day.
We are very grateful to the
fire department for their quick
response and hard work.

lators, agencies and residents can help ensure sustainable natural
resources 'and a healthy environment by deliberate growth man-
agement, fostering Florida Forever and other land acquisition pro-
grams.
Now more than ever, the FWC realizes that recognizing the
unique attributes of Florida's ecology and natural resources and the
role they play in creating a quality lifestyle for Floridians is criti-
cal. The future depends on science-based management and a
proactive look at deliberate growth-leadership.
"Wildlife 2060", a report by the FWC (see MyFWC.com),
shows Florida's natural lands and waters are at the core of our pros-
perity, bringing billions of dollars in economic benefits to our state
every year.
The report predicts what would happen if current growth pat-
terns continue, but it also highlights activities that have been pur-
sued to shape growth in an environmentally sensitive and commu-
nity-friendly way. By building on these lessons, we can prevent
haphazard sprawl, maintain a natural fish and wildlife community
and ensure future generations can continue to enjoy them.
Projections for global warming suggest particularly severe
threats to the future of our ecology, fish and wildlife and recre-
ational use, as shoreline areas become more inundated by rising
water levels over the next century.
The FWC has taken a leadership role in this area too, by hold-
ing a summit titled "Florida's Wildlife: On the front line of climate
change." The summit included Nobel Peace Prize laureates Dr.
Jean Brennan, from Defenders of Wildlife, and Dr. Virginia
Burkett, from the U.S. Geological Survey.
With the information gathered at the summit, the FWC has set
in motion the actions necessary to manage fish and wildlife as they
adapt to the stresses of rapid change.
Florida's Wildlife Legacy Initiative is the FWC's principal
effort to conserve Florida's wildlife and their habitats. The goal is
to prevent wildlife from becoming endangered. Rather than rules
and regulations, the initiative creates partnerships to take action.
"Get Outdoors, Florida!" is an effort to engage communities,
families and individuals in outdoor experiences to achieve healthi-
er lifestyles and sustain Florida's natural resources. This broad
coalition, including the FWC, envisions a healthy Florida commu-
nity that is connected with nature and reflects social diversity,
while exhibiting a conservation ethic to help ensure a sustainable
future and recreational opportunities.
We all can participate by encouraging our youth to get out-
doors and enjoy all that Florida has to offer. When we begin to
appreciate the wonders of the local fishing hole or the rivers flow-
ing through our state, we become partners in conserving those
resources for our enjoyment now and in the future.
Conservation measures, actions and education not only
enhance our lifestyles, but ensure a healthy, sustainable world for
Florida's unique and precious fish and wildlife. Science-based
management will ensure that as our population doubles, fish and
wildlife will abound and future generations will enjoy all of the
healthy benefits of being connected to nature.

Sheng Moua and la Lee anticipate a great reaction from
the community to their shop's high-quality nail care and
low prices.
The business recently opened up its doors to the public and is
excited about its growing clientele.
"We are starting to pick up on customers. Not a lot of people
realize we are here just yet," said la Lee, daughter of the owner,
Doua Lee.
Residents of Hardee County for over seven years, the Lee fam-
ily is hopeful for their first business, and has a set goal as to what
they plan to accomplish.
"We opened up this business to compete with the other nail
salons around us. We have the lowest prices in town," Lee com-
mented.
You and your friends can have a girls night out without an
expensive manicure or the hassle of a do-it-yourself pedicure. D.C
Nails believes you can afford both at its shop.
D.C Nails specializes in manicures, pedicures, gel nail, pink
and white, and designs. It hopes to add eyebrow waxing and facials
in the near future.
Gift cards for an upcoming birthday or celebration are avail-
able upon request, along with a variety of OPI "Psychedelic
Summer" nail polishes for sale.
Students and seniors watching their wallets can have a guilt-
free getaway a. .C NaiJs with the discounts available to both age
groups. "
D.C Naik is open from 9 a.m. to 8 p,m. Monday through
Saturday. Walk-ins are welcome every day but Sunday, which is by
appointment only.

Nutrition

Notes

Q: Is it true that coffee
blocks calcium absorption?
A: Caffeine-containing cof-
fee does seem to slightly de-
crease absorption of calcium
percent but the effect amounts
to about 2 to 5 milligrams (mg)
less calcium for each six-ounce
cup of coffee.
The recommended amount of


calcium for adults (ages 19 to
50) is 1,000 mg daily, so even
multiple cups of coffee add up
to relatively small amounts.
You may have heard of this
effect' from past studies that
linked coffee consumption to
lower calcium levels and weak-
er bone strength. These studies
were few and relatively short-
term.
More recent studies show
past findings were often more
about coffee-drinkers getting
less calcium, rather than a sign
of any biological effect of the
coffee itself.

Eight Easy Ways To Be


Water Wise At Home


Here's a statistic you miy not
want to raise a glass to: The
average American uses 100 gal-
lons of water each day (enough
to fill 1,600 drinking glasses),
according to the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency
(EPA). Meanwhile, the U.S.
government has projected that
more than 70 percent of the
country--at least 36 states--will
face water shortages by the year
2012 due to a combination of
rising temperatures, drought,
population growth, urban
sprawl, waste and excess.


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
God is gracious - it is He
who makes things right, our
most compassionate God.
God takes the side of the
helpless. When I was at the
end of my rope, He saved
me.
Psalm 116:6 (ME)

FRIDAY
You must be made new in
mind and spirit, and put on
the new nature of God's cre-
ating, which shows itself in
the just and devout life
called for by the truth.
Ephesians 4:23-24 (NEB)

SATURDAY
But this is the new contract I
will make with My people ...
I will inscribe My laws upon
their hearts, so that they
shall want to honor Me; then
they shall truly be My peo-
ple, and I will be their God.
Jeremiah 31:33 (TLB)

SUNDAY
With this hope (of resurrec-
tion) before me, I do my
utmost to live my whole life
with a clear conscience
before God and man.
Acts 24:16 (PME)


Managing water is a growing
concern in the United States
and around the world. The good
news is that there is much we
can do to preserve and protect
this precious, limited resource--
starting at home. Following are
eight easy ways you can help
make every drop count:

1. "Flush" old toilets-Old-
er toilets can use as much as
seven gallons of water per
flush. New toilets are not only
designed to use less water, they
are required by law to use less



MONDAY
At that time, it will no longer
be necessary to admonish
one another to know the
Lord. For everyone, both
great and small, shall really
know Me then, says the
Lord, and I will forgive and
forget their sins.
Jeremiah 31:34 (TLB)

TUESDAY
And Jesus said to them,
"Take heed, and beware of
covetousness; for a man's
life does not consist in the
abundance of his posses-
sions."
Luke 12:15 (RSV)

WEDNESDAY
Correction and punishment
make children wise, but
those left alone will disgrace
their mother... Correct your
children, and you will be
proud; they will give you sat-
isfaction.
Proverbs 29:15,17 (NCV)
All verses are excerpted from
The Holy Bible: (KJV) King

water. Replacing your toilet
will save water by lowering
each flush to 1.6 gpf (gallons
per flush) or less.
2. Cut it short--Shortening
your showers by even one or
two minutes can save up to 600
gallons each month. If you pre-
for baths, reduce the water level
an inch or two and you will
save five to 10 gallons each
time.
3. Turn it off-When brush-
ing teeth or washing your hands
or face, turn the water off when
it's not being used.
4. Plug it--When shaving,
plug the drain and fill the sink
only enough to rinse your razor.
This will achieve a huge sav-


ings compared to allowing the
water to run.
5. Go (low) with the flow-
Older showerheads can flow as
much as 3.2 gallons of water
per minute or more, much of it
wasted. And while today's
showers are restricted to a flow
rate of 2.5 gallons per minute
(gpm), there are new "low-
flow" models that deliver even
fewer gallons per minute,
resulting in significant water
savings.
Kitchen and bath faucets are
also available in low-flow ver-
sions. And you don't have to
trade style and performance for
eco-sensibility. For instance, a
leading manufacturer of quality
faucet and shower products
offers more than 60 low-flow
faucets and showerheads that
blend quality with eco-friendly
benefits. Grohe's WaterCare�
line helps consumers reduce


water consumption by up to 30
percent with flow rates of just
1.5 gpm, well below the indus-
try standard of 2.5 gpm (for
showers) and 2.2 gpm (for
faucets). Additionally, all of the
company's low-flow products
are I.A.P.M.O. Green Certified
and all of its bathroom faucets
are EPA WaterSense certified.

Beyond the bathroom...

6. Load up--Run the wash-
ing machine and dishwasher
only with full loads. Older
machines can use as much as 25
to 60 gallons per run. Most
newer washing machines have
water level settings that, when
used appropriately, save 300 to
600 gallons per month. If you
do dishes by hand, use one sink
for wash water and one for rinse
water. If you have one sink, use
it for wash water and place


washed dishes on a rack and
rinse together with a spray
device.
7. Go "green" when clean-
ing greens-Use the sink or a
bowl of water to clean vegeta-
bles instead of letting.the .water
run. After cleaning, a brief rinse
is all yoia need.
8. Bottle it up-Keep a bot-.
tle of tap water in yowr refriger-
ator rather than running the
faucet until the water is cool.
More good news: Saving
water will also save you money.

water wise at home, visit

products, visit www.groheam-

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Wauchula Hills

We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water
and services we deliver to you every day Our water source is the City of Wauchula, which receives its water from wells in the Floridan
Aquifer. The water is then filtered by reverse osmosis and chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Andy Maddox at 863-773-6686. Wauchula
Hills routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except
where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January I to December 31, 2008.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the
following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the
MCLGs as feasible using the.best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to
health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must
follow.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) - one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (pph) or Micrograms per liter (ug/l) - one part by weight of analyte to I billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) - measure of the radioactivity in water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence
that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or-expected
risk to health
In 2008, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found 16 potential sources of
contamination near the wells. These included petroleum storage tanks and a wastewater treatment plant. The level of risk is from low to
moderate. Source water assessments are posted at http://wwuw.dep..state.fl.us/'wapp/.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in
drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Wauchula is,
responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When
your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2
minutes before using water fir drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water
tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline or at i . i,,i ., ',.'i' .- .. ,: . ,
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes.
streams, pondv, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally
occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from
human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such us viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems,
agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater
ru.nff industrial or domestic wasteivater discharges, "il and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff and
residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of
industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining
activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations. which limit the amount of certain contaminants in
water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in
bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The
presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and
potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-
4791.
Some people may hbe more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such
as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other
immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health cure providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to, lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

A VIETNAMESE, HE


JOINED THE U.S. ARMY


By TOU LOR
Special To The Herald-Advocate
I am interviewing Charles Palazayia.
Charles lived in a house made of
sticks and bamboo. The roof was made
with dead straws between slit bamboo.
Charles loved to play the guitar, soccer
and volleyball. In his spare time he
would go fishing and hunting.
Charles' village was very small, and
had only 10,000 people in the village
Noos Nteem, Laos.
He and his family raised pigs, chick-
ens and cows. He didn't have a favorite
drink or candy because,'in the village,
there was no candy and no sugar bever-
age but water.
In the spring time they would walk
two miles east of their home and go
plant rice, corn and other veggies.
"When it
rains, the . -
rice field
looks very ' t
beautiful,"
he said. When the rice is full of water,
they put fish in there. "There, the fish's
left overs can be decomposed. When the
rice is ready in the summer, they can
sell the rice and the fish in the market,"
he said.
Charles and his two brothers and sis-
ter all went to school really early in the
morning. When they came home, they
would make a fire and they would kill a
chicken or two.
Late, they would do their home-
work.
Charles was going to graduate, till
the Vietnam War occurred. The United
States was short of soldiers and was

looking for any volunteers to become a
soldier. Charles was 13 when he joined
in the U.S. Army in the Vietnam War in
Laos.
He served in the Vietnam War for
five years. When the war was over, he
went to the refugee camp, where his
family was staying. When Charles was
23 years old, his family was finally
offered to go to the United States of
America.
When his family came to America,
their life had a new beginning. Today
Charles is 67 years old, living in Zolfo
Springs.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

Orange-Blue Game Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Barbecue and football, foot-
ball and barbecue, the perfect
combination.
Plan to enjoy both tomorrow
(Friday) as a Hardee Wildcat
fundraiser offers barbecued din-
ners. People who get them will
also get into the Orange-Blue
game, which begins at Wildcat
Stadium at 7 p.m.
Businesses can call the high
school and order barbecue
chicken dinners delivered at
lunchtime. Takeout dinners will
also be available at the high
school cafeteria between 5 and
6 p.m. Dinners are $6. Those


going to the game without pur-
chasing a dinner are asked to
make a similar donation. Pro-
ceeds will help with football
summer camp expenses.
All 56 available players will
participate in the Orange-Blue
game. Twenty of them are
up-coming seniors, without
classmate Nick Battles, who

SEEDS
FROM
THE
:' SOWER



One week, while preaching
in west Texas, some cowboys
won my heart.
They invited me to a round
up and offered to teach me to
throw a lasso.
Riding a horse, I threw a
lasso, and I wrapped it around
my horse and myself. Getting
up from the ground, I found
the cowboys bent over with
laughter.
But all around us we see
people who have been tripped
by their own transgressions,
wrapped by their own wrong-
doings.
Want deliverance? Call on
the Lord.
David said, "This poor man
cried, and the Lord . . . saved
him out of all his troubles.


-he circus is in town! Excitement awaits under the big top.
SAnimals, acrobats, jugglers, clowns ... it's show time!
In the center ring the juggler has many balls in the air. His moves
appear so effortless, but require hours of preparation of mind, body
and spirit.
Some people.appear to glide easily through life, juggling many
activities with case. With practice, you can join them. Prepare for
each day with prayer and the knowledge of God's will for. your life.
Be further strengthened each week with worship and fellowship in
God's house. Come one, come all! o�4tr

THE LOVE OF A MO OTHER
The love of a mother is as strong as the word of the
All mighty and Powerful God.
The mother is as beautiful as a glistening
star in the light blue sky.
' A mother is as love as an angel
sent from God Himself.
The mother is as peaceful as the sun setting
and the moon rising.
She is there to catch every tear you cry.
I love the way she is there so I can hug her like my
teddy bear.
I love the way she thinks of me as a
king not as a kid.
She thinks so much more of me she is as great as the
Lord made the earth.
- Gabriel L. Ledezma, 15

There's not a lot going on in the sports world.
Two events are coming up worth noting.
One is football. There's the Orange and Blue game on Friday
night at Wildcat Stadium. Using it as a fundraiser, there will be the
sale of barbecue chicken dinners as well. They are $6 apiece. They
can be ordered by businesses at lunchtime and will be delivered, or
can be purchased for take-out between 5 and 6 p.m. at the high
school cafeteria. Call 773-3181.
Each person buying a dinner will keep his receipt to get into the
7 p.m. game free. Others going to the game are asked to make a
similar donation, with proceeds to used for team expenses.
Keep in mind that the Spring Classic game is at Lake Wales on
Friday, May 29 at 7 p.m. Follow the Wildcats and see their 2009
team in its first concerted effort.
