109th Year, No. 26

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Hierald-Advocate
Two businessmen accused in
separate incidents of crimes
involving children have been
sentenced in Hardee Circuit
Court.
Both Curtis Rush Bell, 42,
and Billy Joe Staton Jr., 31, had
entered into plea agreements
with Assistant State Attorney
Gene Malpas which precluded
the need for jury trials. In
Bell's case, his plea means no
child will be subjected to testi-
fying in open court.
Bell, a music instructor who
owned Symphony Studio on
Main Street in Wauchula, had
been charged with two counts
of attempted lewd molestation,
one count of lewd battery and
five counts of attempted lewd
battery at his arrests in July and
November of last year and
March of this year.
Investigators alleged he fon-
dled children.
In a plea agreement negotiat-


ed between Malpas and defense
lawyer Hans Grieble, Bell
changed his "not guilty" plea to
"no contest" in exchange for
reducing the two attempted
lewd molestation counts to
child abuse instead, and for
dropping the remaining six
counts against him.
Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle sentenced him to five


years of supervised probation
for, each of those two child-
abuse counts, running the terms
consecutively, for a total of 10
years.
Further, the judge said Bell
may have no unsupervised con-
tact with any children.
Ezelle ordered Bell to pay
$520 in fines and court costs.

Every year the local school
district selects one former stu-
dent who shines through dedi-
cation to the community, educa-
tion and personal success to
become the newest member of
the Hardee County Schools
Hall of Fame.


The purpose of the Schools
Hall of Fame is to showcase the
successes of individuals who
are products of the Hardee
County School District and
prove that attending a small
rural school does not hinder
one's potential for success.
The inductees must have
attended local schools and have
made, or be making, significant
contributions to their profes-
sional fields and communities.
This year, at the 15th annual
Senior Honors &t Hall of Fame
Banquet, Doyle W. Bryan was
the honored inductee into the
Hall of Fame.
Doyle W~esley Bryan, son of
F.L. and Nora Ella Williams
Bryan, was born and raised in
Hardee County. Bryan graduat-
ed from Zolfo Springs High
School, after being moved there
from Wauchula High School
after it burned.
On June 12, 1949, Bryan
exchanged marriage vows with


Kathryn Thomas. The couple
had four children: Derrel Bryan,
Shuree Rawls, Denice Driskell
and Karen Grice.
After spending time irl varied
occupations, Bryan decided to
pursue his law enforcement
career, which began in 1972.
Under the leadership of Sheriff
Newton Murdock, Bryan joined
the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office.
Bryan was named chief of
police for the city of Bowling
Green shortly after, in 1975.
Bryan held that position of
leadership for five years, gain-
ing both knowledge and experi-
ence.
Doyle finally pursued a life-
long dream when he ran for
sheriff of Hardee County in
1980. His philosophy for his
campaign was: Ask each voter
in Hardee County for his vote
and support to serve as his sher-
iff. In return, provide fair and

An organizational change
will have little impact on the
elderly residents of the county.
"H.O.P.E. of Hardee is not

oped a transition plan with the
least disruption to local resi-

tive director of the Hardee
County Council on Aging Inc.,
which has overseen adult ser-
vices for 34 years.
The local agency will not be
the lead agency for local ser-
vices for the elderly after June

will take over its direction on
July 1. It has served Highlands
County residents since 1975
and will add several Hardee

directors.

The gist was sin is pleasurable for a season but takes you far-
ther than you want to go, makes you stay longer than you wanted
to stay, and costs more than you wanted to pay.

Wilobur R bertson had used the saying also in a Bible class. I'll pay

The Hardee Wildcat football team lost 17-14 to powerful Lake
Wales Friday in the Spring jamboree game. ,
The Wildcat defense looked good against the run but weak
against the pass. The Hardee offense looked good running the ball
put poor in passing the ball. I think the Cats will be better this fall
than last season and have time to hone their strengths and improve
their weaknesses, as do other teams. ,,,_

A controversial late-term abortion provider, Dr. George Tiller,
67, of Wichita, Kan., was shot and killed Sunday by a lone gunman
in the foyer of Reformation Lutheran Church. Tiller was a usher.
In law enforcement custody is suspect Scott Roeder of the
Kansas City area. Some years back Tiller had been shot bl both
arms by an anti-abortion zealot. He operated one of three clinics in
the U.S. that does late-term abortions (after 21 weeks of pregnan-
cy). *
'However profound our differences as Americans over diffi-

The Tampa Bay Rays so far do not look like they will repeat

In the 1997-98 season Florida produced 244 million boxes of
oranges, the average retail price was $3.76 a gallon, and per capital
consumption of OJ in America was a whopping 5.8 gallons.
What a difference 10 years has made. For the 2007-08 Florida
Sproducedl 170 million boxes of oranges, average retail prices had
soared to $5.91 a gallon but per capital consumption had declined
to 3.8 gallons.
What has helped the citrus industry are the smaller fruit crop
and higher retail prices. The FDOC advertising tax per box from
1997-98 to 2007-08 years increased from 17 1/2 to 24 cents a box
bdt the marketing budget during that time dropped from $41.3 mil-
lion to $23.6 million.
Grovre caretaking costs are up. There is a strong fight under-
way against citrus pests and diseases. The big challenge now is to
get consumers to buy and drink more orange juice.

opened on Monday.
Anglers may take two red

hire vessels in the Gulf may
not keep the recreational bag

The minimum size limit for

The Fliorida Fish & Wildlife


Conservation Commission has
scheduled a final public hearing
on June 18 in Crystal River on a
proposed rule that would close
the Gulf recreational red sliap-'

This would make the red snap-

state waters the same as the
June 1 through Aug. 14 season
in Gulf federal waters.
Florida state ivaters extend
nine nautical miles from shore
in the Gulf, and federal waters
extend beyond state waters.

Psalm 32:8 (7LB)

TUESDAYY
For yourself, concentrate on
winning God's approval, on
being a workman with noth-
ing to be ashamed of and
who knows how to use the
word of truth .to the best
advantage. But steer clear ofl
these un-Christian bab-,
blings, which lead further
and further from Christian liv-
ing.
11 Timothy 2:15-16 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
"But if a wicked man turns

"Ecommte20 tdh npsshal Ih
decrees and does what is
just and right, he will surely
live (eternally); he will not die
. Do I take any pleasure in
the (eternal) death of the
wicked?" declares the Sove-
reign Lord, "Rather, am I not
pleased when they turn from
their ways and live?"
Ezekiel 18:21,23 (NIV)


Perennials are the ones that
grow like weeds, biennials are
the ones that die this year
annuals are the ones that
never come up at all.

Fort Green has a new pastor,
Brother Steve McGaughey and
wife Tara. He began his official
duties as our pastor last Sunday-
To add to his welcome we had a
covered- dish dinner. The food
nearly surpassed our annual
homecoming-
Then, to top that off, we had a
graduation party after the p.m.
service. High school graduate
Chris Reid, AA degree Ashlee
Abbott, and kindergarten's
Abby Duke, Andrew Casey,


Emily Fields and Hunter Davis,
and K-Lynn Simpson, pre-
school, were the ones honored.
We had another good time and
we now need to start Weight
Watchers! I've said it before;
we really know how to eat at
Fort Green!
On Sunday we will be honor-
ing Mr. Blink with a covered-

Blairsville, Ga. Lynda's sister-
in-law had some health prob-
lems while they were visiting
but is doing better; so keep her
in prayer.
Incidentally, Charles said gas
was $1.95 per gallon when they
passed through Valdosta. Re-
gretfully, they had filled up
before reaching Valdosta. That
is the way it usually is! Of .
course, I feel sure they wished .
they could have brought some
home for it was $2.39 this past
week at a local station.
Will Haney's horse collided
with a bull and Will was the one
injured. He will require surgery.
Jeannette Perrine is in trouble
as she has had a return-of the
dreaded "C" disease. Elizabeth
Powell has begun her treat-
ments, so remember all these in .
prayer!
There is a fishing tournament
scheduled for June 13 at Lake
Reedy. This is a community
affair but all of you are invited!
It will cost $25 per boat, and $5
of this will go to a prize for the
largest bass caught. There will
be plaques for first, second and
third places. Twenty dollars of
the entry fee will go to the
youth department at Fort Green
Church. Daylight .until noon
and daylight comes around 5:30
so you must get up before
breakfast.

tion, call Randall Davis 773-

0332. Of course, Mike,is a mas-
ter fisherman and is very famil-
iar with fishing tournaments.
But you never know, it might be
an off day for him. Ya'll plan on
entering. I am not even going to
check the calendar to see if it is
a good day or not to fish. Any
day is a good one!
Fort Green youth were well
represented in the recent 4-H


awards program. Among the
ones -in the fashion show repre-

time since 4-H was esta'blishpd
in Florida in 1909 were K-Lynn
Simpson, Kasie Powell and
Makayla Chancey.
Everyone had a good time
and, as usual, the foundation
cooked a delicious meal.
Some of the dessert was water-
melons with' other fruit, and it
was the best melon I have tast-

Remember to pray for one

I guess the biggest news this time of year is spring football.
Both the Orange and Blue game and the Spring Classic showed
positive signs for the 2009 Wildcats.
Hardee made two TD drives in the all-important fourth quarter
against Lake Wales, overcoming a 10-0 deficit to take a 14-10
advantage. Unfortunately, the Highlanders succeeded in the final
drive which used all but 54 seconds left in the game. The offensive
and defensive lines and backfield looked good.
After a week to rest up, the team will meet for weightlifting and
conditioning until late July and return in early August for a mini-
camp to prepare for the season, which actually begins with the pre-
season game Aug. 28 at Lake Placid. The regular season opens with
a visit from Fort Meade on Sept. 4 and closes with a trip to
Lakewood Ranch on Nov. 13.

Remember, football is the only high school sport not affected
by the two-year cut on athletics. Varsity sports are cut 20 percent
and junior varsity by 40 percent. Pre-season and post-season
games do not count. For most varsity sports, that is a cut from 25
to 20 regular-season games and for JV, it's a maximum of 15
games.
Men's Church League is finishing up its post-season tourna-
ment. Women's Church League and Men's Community League are
starting up.
Girls and boys softball and baseball in Hardee Youth Sports are
also finishing up and will b~gin All-Start action shortly. Hardee
will host the Dixie Boys District 7AA tournament starting June 19.

Also available this summer are two sports opportunities for
you h.
Team USTA tennis will try to play league ball and small tour-
naments this summer. There will also be lessons for beginners 8 to
9:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday from June 15 through July 30.
There will also be individual, group and skill climecs. For more
in~f ration, call Ken or Barbara Leupold at 773-3249 or 245-

Building Official Needed! Ponytails Season Ending


By KASEY HELMS
Of The Hera~ld-Advocate
The H-ardlee County Com-
mission1 faced concerns and
questions from7 local building
contractors at its May 21 meet-
ing. *
Speaking first to the board
was resident Grady Johnson,
who said having a new building
official would create a
smoother process.
"We needl new, fresh eyes,
and right now we are losing
business and deterring people
with all the fees on everything,"
said Johnson.
Also voicing concern was
builder Benny Hash, former
president of the Hardee Build-
ers Association. "Three out of
the last four building officials
have been fired, which broke a
good system. We need consis-
tency and common sense with
the Construction Industry Li-
censing Board and the building
office," He suggested B.J.
Haney, who now processes zon-
ing requests, be appointed.
Commission Chairman Dale
Johnson said,' The problem
can't be fixed overnight. Bear
with us; we want consistency,
too." He asked contractors to
give the board 60 days to come
up with a solution.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
asked the contractors if the
county could survive without a
building official and suggested
obtaining one from Polk
County for a few hours a week.
Glen Burgens replied, "Hay-
ing a building official for four
hours a week won't work. We
need to act now. In 60 days, we
might be out of business,"
Hash added that having the
county's own building official
would improve consistence
with the many questions that
come up concerning the rules,
regulations and codes.
Also expressing concern was
local contractor Lavon Cobb-
'"We need a buildling depart-
ment where every customer
feels needed and valued." He
also remarked that "Now is a
good time to fix fundamental
problems with n t department

In other action, the commis-
sion:


recognized the first grad- .

The Hardee Wildcats went to
Lake Wales Friday night and
did everything but win-
The 'Cats gained more yards
and had fewer penalties than the
Highlanders, scoring twice in
the fourth quarter before a Lake
Wales drive put the team ahead
17-14 with 54 seconds left in
the game.
Hardee amassed 249 yards,
nearly half in the fourth quarter.
Lake was held to 235 yards.
Hardee lost 40 yards on a half
dozen penalties while Lake
Wales lost 80 yards on' nine
penalties and also lost posses-
sion on three fumbles.
"I was extremely happy with


the way we played. At a liot of
points we could have put the
game away. We had some good
defense and will work to elimi-
nate a lot of mistakes. We'll
take a week off and start next
week on weightlifting and con-
ditioning, until the end of July.
Then, we'll have a short break,
an early August mini-camp here
and get ready for the next sea-
son," said Wildcat head coach
Tim Price.
A perennial powerhouse with
10 district championships and
three final four appearance in
the 20 years between 1980 and
2001, Lake Wales has its suc-
cessful coach Rod Shafer back
in leadership after a stint in col-
lege cpaching. His son, Justin


Shafer, a sophomore, is the heir
apparent to the quarterback
position which he played some
last year.
Hardee scored the only
touchdown in the third quarter,
which consisted mostly of
younger/JV players. Freshman
Colby Baker got the score. Lake
Wales took a 10-0 halftime lead
but relinquished it to Hardee
14-10 by the three-minute mark
of the fourth quarter. The
Highlanders then launched a
10-play drive for the winning
score.
During the game, Hardee saw
a variety of players. Junior
Ezayi Youoyoute returns as
starting quarterback but junior
Conner Davis and freshman

FROM
m THE
'~r~~CSOWE R

U... on..

A girl was gomng with the
idol of his family; he had been
idle for years. And her father
didn't like it.
"But, dad," said the girl,
"he's SO COOl!"
"He ought to be," he
replied. "He has no moving
parts to generate heat."
Everyone admires a worker.
Even a mosquito gets a pat on
the back when he starts work-
ing.
The Living Bible says,
"Work hard and cheerfully at
all you do, just as though you
were war ing for the Lord
and not merely for your mas-
ters, remembering that it is the
Lord who is going to pay you
.. If you don't do your best
for Him, He will pay you in a
way that you won't like for
He has no special favorites
who can get away with shirk-
Ing "

A~s an Amri~can citizen, I have decided not to pur--
chase any General Motors or Chrysler products if
at all possible.

T his may sound UN AM ERI CAN to some. H however,
when the politicians in this country mortgage my
children's and grandchildren's future to buy union
votes, that is my definition of UNAMERICAN.

The politicians and the unions may have strudk
their deal, but they seem to have left out one fa(-
tor in their equation, and that is "US" the AMEFPI-
CAN people who pay the bills.

Sincerely,
Benjamin R. Halsh

Rise & Shine

THE CHURCH BULLETIN
The other day I read something that encouraged me a lot. It
was a simple announcement in our church bulletin: "Policy
Regarding Inclement Weather We will have services regardless of
the weather or how many can make it.
What a sturdy statement! The meeting of the saints to praise
God will be held regardless of anything!
How helpful this is in establishing priorities! I see a train in a
station. It is ready to depart and it has a schedule to keep. If you are
serious about getting to a destination, you will make it your busi-
ness to be there, to get your ticket punched and to climb aboard.
Let's be clear. It is not cruelty if the train leaves on time with-
out you. It is life'
And it applies to many other situations not mentioned in the
church bulletin.
If you miss the train today, there may be another opportunity
next week or next year. But there are no guarantees. My advice:
Choose what you believe is the highest and best, and go for it -
regardless of the weather or what others may do.

92 PERCENT GRADUATION RATE!
Decisions to Win is a program that reaches out to high-school
students who are at risk of dropping~ out.
It is a mentoring program with a 16-lesson curriculum.
Specially trained volunteers lead students though the curriculum, in
the process of setting personal goals for the future and strategies to
reach those goals. The curriculum focuses on crucial life skills
while incorporating the one-to-one mentoring that provides indi-
vidual support, guidance and friendship.
When students leave school without a diploma the prospects
for independence, employment and financial viability are dramati-
cally decreased. They are twice as likely to abuse drugs and alco-
hol, and twice as likely to engage in criminal activities.
On average, individuals without a high-school diploma make
($24,000 less annually than peers who graduate.
The graduation rate among students at Hardee Senior High
School is 70.3 percent. In the latest school year, Dectsions to Win
participants achieved a 92 percent graduation rate, a truly remark-
able achievement for an at-risk population,
Please consider volunteering for this program that will have a
powerful, positive impact on the lives of young people in Hardee
County.
The time commitment is not burdensome mentors meet
with their students for less than one hour a week at the high school
to complete 16 lessons. Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast
provides training, a workbook and ongoing support. .
If you are interested in volunteering for the Decisions to Win
program in the 2009-10 school year, please contact me at 448-
2614.
Gina Neuhofer is a mentor manager for Big Broth~ers Big Sisters of
the Sun Coast. She can be reached at (863) 448-2614.
