Folks throughout the state of
Florida will have to think twice
before driving off.without a seat
belt on.
As of Tuesday, law enforce-
ment officers have the right to
pull over a driver just for not
wearing a seat belt, as it is now
a primary offense. Most new
laws take effect July 1, but
Florida had to begin its seat belt
safety law by June 30 to qualify



July 4th

Goes Off

With Bang
By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Herald-Advocate Intern
The time of year has come
once again for folks to gather
around with their loved ones at

Fourth of July celebration!
This year's festivities are
bound to make this patriotic
holiday one to remember.
The opening ceremony will
begin at 10 a.m. in the park at
the corner of U.S. 17 and SR 64
in Zolfo Springs, with registra-
tion and vendor sign-up. The
official welcoming by the
Hardee County Youth Coalition
and Hardee County Commis-
sion will begin at 11 a.m.
. Sheriff Arnold Lanier will
lead the prayer, followed by the
presentation of the flag by Boy
Scout Troop No. 813.
Games and activities will be
going all day long, including a
dunk tank, waterslides, bounce
houses, obstacle courses, flag

Comprehensive Assessment
Test science scores.
Hardee fifth graders came
closest to the state scores on
students achieving Level 3 or
above when the science scores
were released recently. The
local students came in 10 points
behind the statewide achieve-
ments.


2 More Lose Jobs

County Down $1 Million


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Coming up $1 million short
this year only makes future
belt-tightening worse.
As state revenue cuts in
November and March drastical-
ly reduced dollars available to
the counties, as building
slowed, and the economic woes
spread out, the county is look-
ing at hard times for the near
future and perhaps several
years.
Residents will not receive the
services they are used to.
Grading of unpaved roads,
roadside mowing and upkeep of
public buildings will be sched-
uled less often. Gone are the
days of "on-demand" services,
except for catastrophic events,
such as hurricanes or floods.
The sheriff is asking for
money to provide more staff to
handle the increased crime rate
related to unemployment and
decreased wages. The Clerk of
Courts has had to lay off staff


and reduce hours for all other
staff in order to absorb an 18
percent state revenue allocation
reduction.
Other elected officials, the
tax collector, property appraiser
and supervisor of elections are
also looking at state-mandated
fee increases, which will go to
state coffers, and additional
operating expenses.
The last to look at budget
shortfalls will be the Hardee
County Commission, which
will have its annual budget
workshops July 20-24. At its
meeting today (Thursday), the
commission will consider set-
ting a fund balance policy, a
discussion set for about 10 a.m.
As Janice Williamson, budget
and finance director, pointed
out nearly a month ago, the
county cannot continue to put
off replacing worn and outdated
equipment.
County manager Lex Albrit-
ton estimates that the budget

ed the widest margin, trailing
state scores by 20 points, while

Among the five elementary
schools in the county, Wauchula
Elementary came closest to the
state score of 46 with a 43.
Students beat the state level of 8
on the life and environment,
making a 9 in that category.
They met the state levels of 8
on both the earth and space, and

and 7 on the physical and chem-
ical category.
Neither statewide students


nor local ones came close to the
possible total levels of 12, 13,
13, 13 respectively in the four
divisions. Statewide levels have
grown from 28 percent in 2003
to the present level of 46 per-
cent at Level 3 or above.
Zolfo Springs was next high-
est where students scored 40
percent at Level 3 or above, and

for $35 million in federal funds
for road improvement programs
in the state.
The law used to state that an
officer could only issue a ticket
for not wearing a seat belt as a
secondary offense, if the driver
was pulled over for another
traffic violation.
The National Highway Safety
Administration estimates that
the law will prevent 120 fatali-


ties and more than 1,700 serious
injuries in Florida each year.
Florida joins 26 other states
which already have a primary
law for safety belts violations.
The new law states that the
driver and all front-seat passen-
gers must be buckled up and
any passenger under the age of
18 must wear a seat belt despite
where he is sitting in the vehi-
cle. If the unbelted person is


under 18, the driver receives the
ticket; if they are over 18, the
person in violation gets the tick-
et.
The ticket for not wearing a
seat belt is $30, but with fees
and costs, it could range from
$93 to $119, depending on the
county. In Hardee County, a
seat belt violation used to total
$98; now it will be $113.
A federally approved child


restraint device must be used
for children 3 years of age or
younger. Children ages 4 and 5
must be either in a seat belt, a
separate carrier or an integrated
child seat.
"Hardee County will be
enforcing this new law moder-
ately.,It is the discretion of the
officer whether to give the dri-
ver a warning or citation. This
law will get the attention of


those drivers who do not nor-
mally wear their seat belts,"
said Sheriff Arnold Lanier.
SWauchula Police Chief Bill
Beattie agreed. "We aren't
going to target this but enforce
it in conjunction with other traf-
fic laws. If the driver responds
favorably, we'll explain it is
mandatory now and issue a,
warning the first time," he
explained.
Staff writer Joan Seaman con-
tributedd to this report.




Durastanti


New BGE


Assistant


Principal
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
In a sweet contrast, a boy
who once attended the school is
now the man named to serve as
its new assistant principal.
"It's like coming home,"
Stuart Durastanti said on
Tuesday from an office at
Bowling Green Elementary
School. The Hardee County


Durastanti
School Board last week
approved Durastanti for the
assistant principal's slot there.
Durastanti, 27, pointed out
that he lives in Bowling Green
now, and did as a child as well.
He spent all his elementary
school years at the campus he
now trods once again.
"I'm really excited to be here
and to work with the outstand-,
ing faculty and staff here," he
said. "I'm looking forward to
working with the wonderful
faculty, staff, parents and stu-
dents of this school."
Durastanti, who had been a
math teacher at Hardee Junior
High School, officially assumes
his new post on Aug. 1, but he

Kelly's Column
By Jim


On Thursday University of Florida head football coach Urban
Meyer was the featured dinner speaker in Bonita Springs at the
annual Florida Citrus Conference.
He was introduced by Florida citrus and cattle baron Ben Hill
Griffin III. If you attend a Gator football game in Gainesville you
will notice the stadium is named in honor of Ben Hill Griffin. The
red blood of Ben Hill. III and his late father has hues of orange and
blue. They gave green to UF athletics.
Griffin said Urban" Meyer, established a leadership committee
among the football players and that Meyer and Gator head basket-
ball coach Billy Donovan have a goal to raise $50 million for UF -
scholarships.
Meyer said UF is the finest academic and athletic school in the
nation, having won four national titles in the last four years. UF has
a "close group of coaches."
Meyer said UF is "the greatest university in the United States"
and that he is "glad to be Tim Tebow's coach."
Meyer said his Gator team quit in the fourth quarter of the
Michigan (bowl) game a few years ago. He said previewing a Nike
TV commercial featuring Dwayne Wade (NBA star for the Miami
Heat) a few weeks later inspired him, ,; ..
Meyer said to be successful you need. "love, passion and
enthusiasm."
He said football is "dirty, nasty, violent" and to practice in July
and August is "borderline criminal." Football, however, is "spe-
cial."
Meyer said he believes at UF that.great talent can win seven
games in a.football season. "Add discipline to get eight or nine
wins. Add leadership (among the players) and you have a chance
for a magical thing."
In four years Meyer's Gators have won two NCAA football
titles.
UF won the national title in 2009, holding Oklahoma - con-
sidered by many to be the best offensive college football team in
history, having scored 611 points - to 14 points. UF's Charlie
Strong "is the best defensive coordinator in the nation."
The Gator special teams last season blocked nine kicks, said
Meyer.
Important to winning championships is "to get high character
people (players) who put the team first."
Meyer quoted American military leader Col. Danny McKnight
who said about succeeding in a crisis situation, "Overconfidence
and lack of preparation can lead to failure."
Meyer said people who survive and thrive in tough circum-
stances need these attributes: be physically fit, emotionally and
mentally in the right place, and spiritually'in the right place.
Many Gator supporters wanted the Ole Ball Coach (Steve
Spurrier) to return to Gainesville. New UF President Bernie
Machen and athletic director Jeremy Foley instead hired Urban
Meyer.
Meyer has proven to be a most worthy hire.

WEATHER SUMMARY
A downpour of showers covered the State last week. Areas of
the Panhandle, central, and southern Peninsulas received over two
inches of rain. Collier add Highlands counties received the most
precipitation, 4.55 and 5.35 inches, respectively. Daytime highs
were in the upper 90s and 100s, lows were in the upper 60s and
70s. Levy and Franklin counties had above average temperatures
reaching the hundreds.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
Pasture condition improved in some areas and worsened in
others, depending on recent rainfall. In the Panhandle and northern
areas, pasture condition was poor to excellent with most fair to
good. The poor condition was due to lack of rainfall. Cattle condi-
tion was mostly good; however, hot, dry weather negatively affect-
ed pasture and livestock conditions. Livestock were suffering from
the extreme heat and ranchers were concerned bull fertility had
been adversely affected by the hot weather.

All proceeds and/or donations
received will help defray the
costs of the fireworks and all-
day celebration.
"In the reality of the econo-
my, families do not have the
money to vacation and/or trav-
el. The county and the Youth
Coalition want to provide this
opportunity for families and the
community to come together
and celebrate a very important
day in history. We want to thank
God for the freedom we have to
be able to openly meet together

cultivate relationships between
businesses, government, educa-
tion, churches and families,"

shortfall for the next fiscal year,
which begins Oct. 1, will prob-
ably be a lot higher than this
year's $1.050 million, which
was a 6.87 percent hit to the
General Fund.
In the last couple of years 30
employees have been lost to
attrition, their positions not
being filled when they left or
retired. Two more will lose their
jobs today (Thursday) as rev-
enue drops in the building
department cannot support
those staff.
The revenue cuts and
employees losses mean most
positions will not be filled for
several years. "We're being told
to expect this for up to four
years, until 2013 or 2014. All
forecasts are for a long recovery
period to the economic slow-
downs," said Albritton.
At the same time revenue is
shrinking,;-.commissioners, Al-
britton and budget. staff are fac-
ing many demands. Hardee
County Builders Association
wants a new building official to
make uniform decisions and
apply Land Development
Regulations and statutes evenly.
People want culverts at their
driveways repaired or replaced
but can't afford to pay for it
themselves.
State dollars for fiscally con-
strained small counties will
increase the county's share of
Shared Revenue tax dollars -
just enough to replace grant
dollars lost which were to pay
for closing a portion. of the
landfill and opening another.
Some of the state intercounty


library funds were restored, but
the reduction of hours at the
library will continue, with no
Saturday or evening hours in
the near future.
At recent budget discussions,
commissioners have pointed
out the positives and negatives
of the state budget and effects
passed on down to the counties
in the form of unfunded man-
dates and less grant dollars.
It really comes down to how
much money is available and
how far it will stretch.
For more information, attend
commission meetings, or the
budget hearings in late July.


Local Elks Lodge



Has Uncertain Future


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula Elks Lodge No.
1700, located at 318 W. Main
St., has struggled financially
and in active membership in
recent times.
A few weeks ago the lodge's
social facilities were closed. On
June 2 a resolution was read to
merge with the Arcadia Elks
Lodge. Wauchula members will
vote on the resolution on
Tuesday. The meeting is for
paid-up members, and starts at
7:30 p.m.
As of mid-June, the Wau-
chula Elks Lodge had 295
members but 111 had not paid
their dues.
Options could include surren-
dering the charter or merging
with another lodge.
An option includes selling the
current building, with the


money going to the state orga-
nization and held in escrow for
five years. After five years the
funds would be placed in the
Harry Anna Trust Fund.
Another option would be for
the Wauchula Lodge to reorga-
nize and locate in a smaller
building.
There are several scenarios,
but recent history shows the
local lodge does not have
enough active members to be
successful in the current build-
ing.
The lodge has donated to
many charities in the past.
The Wauchula Lodge was
sponsored by Arcadia Elks
Lodge 1524 and opened on July
11, 1946, with Russell Farmer
as the first exalted ruler. Other
local officers were Luther Fin-
ley, Raymond Mincey, Debbie
Rushing, R.L. Park, H.S. Priehn,


H.F. Johnson, Perry R4ines,
C.A. Barker, H.A. Yetter and L.
Grady Burton Sr.
The lodge first met upstairs in
the Beeson Building at Seventh
Avenue and Main Street. The
current building cost $80,000
and was built in 1955-56 with
volunteer labor supervised by
H.S. Priem. In 1989-90 the wpst
addition of a Bingo Hall was
built by Cobb Construction for
$132,000.
Lodge bingo started in 1977.
Also in 1977, a women's orga-
nization called Elkettes was*
started, with Helene Mancini as,
president.
A stuffed elks head was do-
nated to the lodge by Fred Bar-
ley, who shot the animal in
Oregon.
Jean Burton later donated an
elk painting to the lodge in
1987.

The future of the Wauchula Elks Lodge will be discussed in a meeting Tuesday night.


uurastanti can fill that need,
she believed.
"I am so excited to welcome
him to our Leadership Team
that we have, and I also look
forward to his insight, to his
creativity and to his motiva-
tion," Clark added.
Durastanti attended the
school as a youngster, from
1987 to 1993.
But after that he went on to
graduate from Hardee Senior
High School, South Florida
Community College and the
University of South Florida,
where he earned a master's
degree in education leadership.
He began his teaching career
in Hardee County at the junior
high, where he has taught math
to sixth through eighth graders
since 2004. He also has served
as an assistant athletic director
and as an assistant football
coach at that school.
"I feel the occupation of
teacher is the most important
and rewarding profession.
Every day I have the ability to
influence and impact the lives
of my students," he wrote in his
application for the leadership
position, adding, "As an assis-
tant principal, I will have the
ability to influence and impact
the entire student body.
"It is my goal to serve the stu-
dents of Hardee County," he
concluded.
Clark said her plans are for
Durastanti to be an integral part
of a new 45-minute math block
being Instituted at the school.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
(God says), "When you call
on Me, when' you come and
pray to Me, I'll listen. When
you come looking for Me,
you'll find Me. Yes, when you
get serious about finding
Me, and want it more than
anything else, I'll be sure
you won't be disappointed."
Jeremiah 29:12-13 (ME)

FRIDAY
Jesus said,. "Believe Me,
when I tell that if anybody
accepts My words, he will
never see death (eternal) at
all."
John 8:51 (PME)


SATURDAY
Then the Spirit of God told
Azariah to say to King Asa,
"Listen to me, .. .The Lord
will stay with you as long as
you stay with Him! When-
ever you look for Him, you
will find Him, but if you for-
sake Him, He will forsake
you."
ii Chronicles 15:1a,2b (TLB)


SUNDAY
And without faith it is-impos-
sible to please God. For
whoever-would d raw-near to-
.God must believe that He
exists, and that He rewards
those who seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 (RSV)


MONDAY
Trust in the Lord with all your
heart; do not depend on
your own understanding.
Seek His will in all you do,

Durastanti added, "I'm excited
about bringing my math back-

Durastanti was one of four
applicants for the assistant prin-
cipalship at the school. Also
vying for the job were Mary
Farr, Tammy Pohl and Gilbert
Vasquez.
Principal Kathy Clark said all
four "were excellent, excellent
candidates," but that she chose
Durastanti because of his
strengths in mathematics, an
area where the school is cur-

trend.
"I wanted someone very

background, and strong in data
and data analysis," she said on

Congratulations are in order for Wildcat catcher Brek
McClenithan who signed a college scholarship with Warner
University, formerly known as Warner Southern College, in Lake
Wales. The three-year Wildcat varsity player will continue as
catcher in his college role.

The Hardee All-Stars in all age groups have been busy trying to
get in games around the thunderstorms. So far, we've learned that
the Dixie Ponytails (ages 11-12) and the Angels (ages 7) have won
their district titles and will advance to the state competition. If oth-
ers have information, I would be glad to hear it.

A lawsuit has been filed against the Florida High School
Athletic Association for its decision to cut all varsity sports but
football by 20 percent of its schedule for the next two years as a
cost-saving method. That decision does not agree with gender equi-
ty legislation which says girls sports should have equal opportuni-
ties, numbers and facilities as boys sports.
While I agree with that in principle, there are just not the num-
bers interested in girls sports to equal those of boys. When there are
roughly 50-60 boys out for varsity and JV football, there are not
that number of girls in all the fall sports, volleyball, golf, cross
country and cheerleading. The numbers may be more nearly equal
in soccer and basketball, but again in the spring, baseball and soft-
ball, girls and boys track, and boys and girls tennis may not have
the same ratio of boys and girls as is in the school population. You
can offer the sports, but that doesn't mean girls will want to partic-
ipate in them.

Women's Church League and Men's Community League are
busy playing softball. Holy Child Catholic and Wauchula First
Methodist are co-leaders in the ladies league, while La Floresita,
Farm Credit and Fuego's are the only unbeaten squads in the men's
league.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please e-mail me at news.heraldadvocate@embarq-
mail.com or call me at 773-3255 with news for this biweekly col-
umn. The sports news deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday, except for
events which happen over the weekend. They are due by noon
Monday.

Garbage Rule


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Anyone who generates gar-
bage in the municipality of
Zolfo Springs must utilize the
town's franchisee to haul it off.
So says Ordinance 2009-02,
which was approved on first
reading in June and is set for
final reading and adoption in a
public hearing set for Monday,
July 20.
The ordinance, which is.
being enacted in order to clarify
existing town code, was
prompted by a former restau-
rant owner who refused to use
'the town's franchisee and opted
to haul her own garbage
instead.
While that action violated
town code, the Zolfo Springs
Town Commission saw a need
to better define the require-
ments of Chapter 229 dealing
with solid waste.
In clarifying code provisions,
the amendment clearly states
"all entities must utilize the
franchisee."
The amendment notes the
town uses the bidding process
in order to keep the price of the
service competitive, and that
selection of one entity best
allows the town to regulate
hygienic practices and service
quality.
Further, requiring all "solid
waste generators," be they resi-
dential, commercial or industri-
al, to use the town's franchisee
is "in the best interest of the


health, safety and welfare of the
citizens of Zolfo Springs."
The town currently contracts
with Hardee County Disposal
for garbage collection services.
In other action at its last
meeting, the Town Commis-
sion:
- heard Mayor George Neel
commend Town Manager Linda
Roberson for her work to assure
the town fulfilled all Com-
munity Block Development
Grant requirements, "passing" a
recent inspection for same.
- agreed to apply for a 2009.
CDBG, with the Citizens Task
Force choosing the area of most
need. Focus will be on the water
plant, Roberson said.
- discussed attempting to
seek a quit-claim deed on the
old Zolfo Springs Medical
Center building, just north of
SR 66 and one block east of
U.S. 17, which has been aban-
doned for years.
Commissioner Lois Dan-
dridge noted the building began
as the Zolfo Springs Men's
Club, and was built with volun-
teer money. The commissioners
said it is deteriorating, and no
one claims it or cleans it up.
- hired the accounting firm
of Christopher, Smith, Leonard,
Bristow & Stanell to perform
the town's 2009 audit.
- provided for a reporting
system and requirements should
any user ever discharge a haz-
ardous waste into the town's
sewer system.


A STORY ABOUT GRANDPA
W.T. Payne is one of the many area residents who frequent
Cracker Trail Museum to either bring something of historical sig-
nificance that has been stored in the rafters of his barn or to just sit
for awhile and relate miscellaneous stories and events of the histo-
ry of Hardee County.
Payne was born in the Sweetwater area of Hardee County.
His father, Guy, was 9 years old in 1909 when his grandfather,
William Samuel Payne, brought the family here from Tennessee.
He built a house and began farming on 160 acres of land.
Guy Payne later married Minnie Lowe, the daughter of Tom
Lowe from Zolfo Springs, and operated a barbershop for a number
of years there.
My first encounter with W.T. Payne was a couple years ago
when he came into the museum after picking up his mail from the
post office. Upon entering the front door, he said, "I don't know
whether you'd be interested in this or not, but. . ." At this time he
produced a rusty ripper saw that his grandfather had used to con-
struct that same log cabin many years ago.
There have been numerous visits to the museum since that first
one, each one producing another story giving some type of histor-
ical data as he recalls it.
One such story emerged quite by accident. Teacher Kayton
Nedza had brought in a group of his "Outdoor Classroom" students
on Nov. 10. Mr. Payne had taken up his normal seat on the bench
located in the lobby of the.museum, and he began to tell me a story
about Nedza's grandfather, Dr. Kayton.
Una Payne was 3 years old and was living in Zolfo Springs
near the old post office with her parents in 1937. Joining her at
home were an older half sister and two older brothers, Glenri and
W.T.
Little Una became ill and was taken to Dr. Spears in Hardee


One of my pet peeves in practice was when a client would
bring in a dog and say, "Lo6k what I found running the streets."
If a dog has a good hair coat, good body condition or is basi-
cally anything but skinny, it is someone's dog.
Dog's, especially male dogs, are prone to go gallivanting. Now
I know there are laws against dogs gallivanting, but dogs can't read
or write so dogs tend to respond to what feels good. What feels
good varies from dog to dog.
Having laid the background for my problem, let me get to the
real issue. A week ago last Friday my No. 2 Katie, almost impor-
tant as my No. 1 Zeus, was riding to town in the back of our pick-
up because she had made a serious error in judgment and gotten
sprayed by a skunk.
Normally she would be riding in the back seat of my car, but I
can tell you it is easier to de-musk a dog than a car. Anyway, she
was on her way to the clinic for an application of Skunk Off.
Katie jumped out of my truck between the store at Seven-Mile
Point and town. I do not believe she is dead because I can find no
evidence, buzzards etc.
I believe she haS'Taken up residence with someone who is
delighted with her and probably means well. I would like to make
someone $200 richer if they helped return her to me alive, of
course "no questions asked."
People love dogs with different levels of emotional attach-
ment. Suzan, my wife, and I often talk about moving to town but
we always come back to the defining problem, "what would our six
dogs do in town?" When it comes to loving my dogs, on a scale
ofl-10, I am a 9 or 10.
Please help me find Katie.


Letter To The Editor

County Comission Should

Treasure Peace River


Dear Editor:
I did not know whether to
laugh or cry when I read "Hard-
ee Lakes 'Best Kept Secret'" in
the June 25, 2009, Herald-
Advocate. The gist of the article
was that the coufity commission
spent a good deal of time at
their last meeting trying to fig-
ure out how to market. Hardee
Lakes and get people to' come
out and use the park (even
allowing the consumption of
alcohol on the premises as an
incentive.)
Although Hardee County is
perhaps the only county in
Florida that doesn't have a nat-
ural lake, it does have one of the
most picturesque rivers in the
state, the Peace River, running
the entire length of the county.
The future of the river appears
to be of little concern to our
commissioners - who unani-
mously permitted 500 acres of
its wetlands to be excavated as
part of the S. Ft. Meade Mine
Extension in spite of Compre-
hensive Plan rules.
Meanwhile there are these
four phosphate pits euphemisti-
cally called "lakes" on the edge
of the phosphate mining district
which now appear to be the real
crown jewels of the county - an
"eco-tourism" destination, no
less.
What a clever idea on the.
part of the phosphate mines ...
they are relieved of the expense
of having to backfill their mine
cuts for which they never seem
to have enough fill material
anyway (until they've moved
on to the next mine), and the
,county gets a "park." In fact,
these "lakes" are a design ele-
ment of every phosphate mine
now . . . "lakes" for recreation
and "lakes" for housing devel-
opment.
Never mind that these
"lakes" are not like any natural


lake in Florida and can only be
permitted by DEP with a vari-
ance for the absence of a lit-
toral zone (the most diverse and
biologically abundant portion
of a lake). Never mind that all
mine pits perpetually leach
water from the surficial aquifer
and expose it to sunlight where
it evaporates and is available
for no other use.
It would appear from the arti-
cle that Hardee Lakes is pres-
ently sustained by state grants,
and' that more grant money
(from phosphate .severance
taxes no less) will be required
to 'market it.. Let's hope the
county gets it right - because if
it turns out that they can't mar-
ket Hardee Lakes as a recre-
ation and "eco-tourism" desti-
nation - then it might just turn
out that they won't be able to
attract developers to build
homes on phosphate pits either.
And there's going to be no
shortage of phosphate pits in
Hardee County at the rate
things are going here.
Florida has a lot of coastline
and wondrous natural waters -
springs, rivers, and one of the
greatest marshlands in the con-
tinental United States. It re-
mains to be seen whether the
mine pits of Hardee County will
be perceived as an "eco-
tourism" destination. I say we
ought to be putting our best
efforts into preserving and
enhancing what is a proven and
historical natural resource in
this county - the beautiful
Peace River - and let the phos-
phate pits be returned by their
creators to the natural function
and conditions that existed prior
to mining, as the law requires.

President,

COURTESY PHOTO
Kayton Nedza (left) sits on a bench at the museum. to
hear a story about his grandfather, the doctor who saved
the life of W.T Payne's (right) sister decades ago.

County. She was not getting any better, even after return visits.
She finally became even worse and could not move her muscles
when the elder Mr. Payne took his daughter to Dr. Kayton, who
also practiced from his office in Wauchula.
Upon examination, Dr. Kayton told Una's father to take her
immediately to the hospital in Arcadia. At the time it was the clos-
est facility to Hardee County. He impressed the urgency to get her
to the hospital as quickly as possible, and that he would make all
of the arrangements and meet them there later.
Una was admitted into the hospital with.the understanding that
the Payne family could pay the $5 fee later. She was examined by
a total of four doctors and she was diagnosed with spinal meningi-
tis, and it was a life-threatening condition for several days.
Guy Payne came home to take care of the rest of the family,
working during the day. -Hisl wife, Minnie, stayed in Arcadia for a
couple of weeks with Una until she was able to leave the hospital.
After relating this story to me as we sat on the green bench in
the main area of the museum, I asked Mr. Payne if he would repeat
the story to Dr. Kayton's grandson before he left with the third
graders visiting from the Outdoor Classroom.
They spent several minutes on that same bench with the story
being repeated and, in the end, with the acknowledgement by Mr.
Payne that his family was grateful to Dr. Kayton that he had saved
'little Una's life. The story was just as clear to him on that
November morning as it was when it happened in the late 1930s.
The ironic thing about that particular date when Kayton Nedza
and W.T. Payne sat talking was that Una Payne Nelson was cele-
brating her 75th birthday in Ripley, Tenn.
Una had left Hardee County at age 18 and attended business
school in Sarasota. She and two other girls rented an apartment and
later got jobs. When one of Una's cousins visited from Ripley, he
offered her a job and she returned with him to that central
Tennessee town just 50 miles north of Memphis, where she later
met her husband and subsequently retired there.
W.T. Payne is but one of the many Hardee County residents
who have stories to tell about our early days. It isn't as easy these
days as it was in the beginning to make the frequent trips to
Cracker Trail Museum to share his memories, since he now carries
his portable oxygen tank and walks with the use of the walker.
Yet he still visits the museum, now with his wife, and each
time he brings a possession of times gone and again prefaces it by
the sentence, "I don't know whether you'd be interested in this or
not, but..."
Of course, he always knows what my answer will be, and we
continue the few steps to the bench where more stories are shared.
Won't you consider sharing your memories of Hardee County
with Cracker Trail Museum? Contact us and set up a time for a
recording to be made for not only Hardee County, but for your fam-
ily as well.

changes and assignments con-
sistentvwith his leadership plan
and educational goals for the
district.
Most public concerns were
covered by the role of the
superintendent and the opera-
tional change anticipated by
voters. The legal questions
remained.
Neither the board's chairman,
the deputy superintendent, the
Personnel Department nor the
assistant principal or principal
in question were able this week
to answer the public's query on
nepotism and job advertising
issues.
None knew if the appoint-
ments for Bowling Green
Elementary School passed legal'
muster.
They did, according to
lawyer O'Brien, who answered
the public's questions in a
phone call Tuesday afternoon.
'O'Brien said the appointment
of Stuart Durastanti, the super-
intendent's son, as assistaiit
principal of Bowling Green
Elementary School did not con-
stitute"a violation of nepotism
'law:
SHe pointed out that the state
of Florida "has specifically
exempted school boards from
the state nepotism law, and that
has been the case for years."
O'Brien went on to explain
that the change was made
decades ago to better provide
for the needs of Florida schools.
"The law does not apply to
educators. There is no law, no
statute," he clearly stated,
adding, "There is no nepotism
rule in Florida education."
He noted that "most school
districts, as a matter of practice,
have it so that one spouse may
not work for another, so that
one spouse is not directly super-
vising the other spouse."
No state regulations exist,
however.

And as to the appointment of
Kathy Clark as principal of
Bowling Green Elementary
,School without advertising the
job and taking applications
from other interested educators,
/O'Brien offered a lengthy
explanation of the duties of a
Targeted Selection Committee
and of the schools superinten-
dent.


In short, O'Brien said the
superintendent "has a unilateral
power, a statutory prerogative,
to nominate who he sees fit,
period."
A schools superintendent
"has the right to'make direct
nominations," O'Brien added.
Further, he said contract lan-
guage which specifies all jobs
must be advertised for five days
applies only to the members of
the collective bargaining unit,
meaning teachers and all non-
instructional personnel.
Administrators, and their
positions, are not part of the
bargaining unit and do not par-
ticipate in the contract, O'Brien
concluded.
Members of the bargaining
unit, however, were unable to
apply for the job.
Also in their meeting last
Thursday, Hardee County
School Board members heard
the concerns of an administrator
whose annual contract with the
district was not renewed.
Marcia Kapusta stood before
the superintendent and board to
say that she and her husband,
Jerry Kapusta, had each worked
for the district in a variety of
capacities for 36 years, yet were
terminated with eight days'
notice.
She said her name was
"smeared" by the nonrenewal of
her contract, an action she said
taints an educator's ability to
Obtain a job in any other school
district.
Kapusta said school district
practice has always been tp
offer an administrator the
opportunity to retire rather than
wait for the nonrenewal. "I was-
n't given the opportunity to
retire," she said.
Kapusta said she and her hus-
band themselves went to the
Personnel Department and
signed forms to retire prior to
the last day of their current con-
tract, which ended this Tuesday.
She felt both she and her hus-
band were treated unfairly, and
challenged Durastanti with
"David, I want you to fix it!"
At the meeting just prior to
last Thursday's session, 25 staff
members did retire. They were
recognized before the board and
received plaques of apprecia-
tion for their years of service to
the district.

ONE SCOOP OR TWO? - As the middle of summer
approaches, folks can hardly seem to find a fan strong enough to
beat this heat. Head on down to the Hot Fudge Shoppe to cool you
and your family off!
The Hot Fudge Shoppe, located at the 1,000 Trails RV Park on
U.S. 17 just north of Zolfo Springs, recently brought its delicious
homemade treats to the people of Hardee County.


PHOTO BY SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Hot Fudge Shoppe owner John Saffer stands by the free
jukebox that plays all the old-time hits.
Owners John and Carla Saffer opened up their first shop in
Arcadia in 1995. That shop is still going strong, with many visitors
coming from out of town just to taste the unique food.
"We have been wanting to expand, and we thought Hardee
County would be the perfect place to do it. We enjoy the people
down here," said John Saffer.
Upon walking into the '50s inspired store, it is obvious what
the crowd favorite is. Comments fly left and right between the cus-
tomers with rave reviews on the Maryland crab cakes.
"One time a man came all the way down from Orlando to lit-
tle ol' Arcadia just to have our crab cake for lunch. No one in
Florida makes crabcakes the way they are supposed to. My wife
puts the perfect amount of flavor in every cake. It is definitely our
specialty," he said.
Along with their signature dish is a variety of food such as
pizza, grilled cheese, cheeseburgers, hot dogs and pulled-pork
sandwiches. All meals include potato chips, pickle and half off ice
cream.
The ice cream is homemade and prepared by the Saffers in
their shop in Arcadia. The flavors include butter fudge, cookies and
cream, chocolate chip cookie dough, mud pie, red raspberry and
many more mouth-watering flavors.
You can enjoy your scoop of ice cream in one of the variety of
waffle cones and bowls. Cones and bowls dipped in chocolate are
available upon request.
Other treats include milkshakes, root beer floats, banana splits
and brownie delight. Free popcorn is also offered to all paying cus-
tomers.
Breakfasts, including bacon and eggs, biscuits and gravy and
other Southern favorites, are available on Sunday mornings.
Not only does the Hot Fudge Shoppe offer delicious home-
made food, but it also has unique feaftfres that you and your fami-
ly are sure to enjoy. After being greetedby the bubble machine at
the entrance, you and your family will take a trip back in time to
when the Beatles and Elvis Presley ruled the radios.
The shop is decorated with checkerboard floors,-records and
an authentic jukebox. The jukebox is free, and has old hits that are
sure to get your grandma on her feet!
Customers will enjoy the food and fun at the Hot Fudge
Shoppe, as well as the friendly customer service each individual
receives.
"We give a lot of service. Whoever walks into the room we
give our full attention to. We always try to ask how their day is and
what they are doing. We care about our customers," Saffer said.
The Hot Fudge Shoppe is open Friday, 4-8; Saturday, 11-8;
and Sunday, 8-3. For more information or for catering or parties,
call (863) 494-6633.

Despite Challenges, Florida Citrus



Remains Major Economic Engine


Citrus growers continue to
face many challenges, however
Florida's signature crop
remains a powerful economic
engine that supports dozens of
rural communities across the
state, according to the head of
Florida's largest citrus trade
organization.
Michael W. Sparks, executive
VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual, delivered his "State of
the Florida Citrus Industry"
address June 25 and used the
speech to emphasize the impor-
tance of citrus, especially in
tough economic times.
"Many towns in Florida's
interior depend on citrus and
with the overall economy suf-
fering, our crop - and agricul-
ture in general - becomes even
more important," Sparks said.
"To paraphrase Mark Twain
'rumors of the citrus industry's
decline have been greatly exag-
gerated.'"
Sparks gave the address as
part of the Florida Citrus
Industry Annual Conference
which takes place in June and
serves as a venue for the indus-
try to discuss issues impacting
Florida citrus. More than 600
people attended the event this
year at the Hyatt Regency
Coconut Point Resort and Spa
in Bonita Springs.
While praising the resiliency
of Florida citrus, Sparks
acknowledged that disease
pressure, high inventories and
declining OJ consumption are
"definitely putting the squeeze
on growers."
"We are facing some
immense challenges," Sparks
said. "The spread of citrus
greening, the most serious cit-
rus disease on the planet, is.put-
ting our $9.3 billion industry


and the 76,000 jobs it creates at
risk."
Citrus greening is a bacterial
disease that kills trees. All 32
Florida counties that contain
commercial citrus production
now have greening. The Florida
citrus industry is now mounting
a multi-million dollar research
effort to find short and long-
term solutions to the disease.
Sparks sounded an optimistic
tone.
"History has proven that the
Florida citrus industry can over-
come and survive pests and dis-
eases, hurricanes and freezes,"
he said. "Citrus has been too
good to the farming families of
Florida to abandon. And with
all that's bad out there, growers


Florida Citrus Mutual CEO
Michael Sparks said citrus
industry faces challenges
of diseases, grower prices
for fruit, and declining per
capital OJ consumption.

Horsepower Secrets: Get More

Out Of Your Car For Less


Want more horsepower with-
out paying much to get it? Here
are three ways today's top
engine builders get mote power
from their racing engines and
their personal cars, without
spending a lot of money to do it.
Upgrade your lubricants -
Friction and heat from engine
components and the drive train
rob horsepower and perfor-
mance. Minimizing this power
loss can be as easy as upgrading
to one of the newer high perfor-
mance lubricants that are avail-
able.
For instance, in a recent test
by Horsepower TV, upgrading
to high performance motor oil
freed up 8 horsepower in a V8
engine. Video of the test and
more information on upgrading
lubricants can be found at


www.royalpurple.com.
Replace and/or upgrade your
air filter - During the life of
your engine, thousands of cubic
feet of air will pass through the
engine cylinders. Dust and
other material in the engine can
cause excessive wear and oper-
ating problems. It's imperative
that you keep air filters clean by
regularly replacing them. To
further enhance performance,
upgrade to a performance air
filter, which can free up an
additional 2 to 3 horsepower.
While not a tremendous power
gain, the relatively low cost of a
filter and ease of installation
(about 5 minutes) more than
make up for it.
Use higher octane gas or an
octane booster - Go for the
good stuff the next time you're


at the pump. Depending on your
vehicle, high octane gasoline
can provide an increase in
horsepower. Even a marginal
gain in switching from the low-
est octane gasoline to the high-
est octane may be worth a few
extra pennies at the pump to
you.
For those who want to see a
more measurable increase in
power, a racing blend of gaso-
line will work well or one of the
numerous brands of octane
booster commonly available at
auto parts stores.
Upgrading your gas, lubri-
cants and air filter are a cheap
and easy way to increase horse-
power. These simple steps will
also extend the life of your
engine and help prevent expen-
sive repairs.

Miller Takes


Sertoma Win


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
For the third week in a row,
Hardee golfers are among the
leaders in the summer Sertoma
Junior Golf Tour.
Last week, it was Daniel
Miller and Will Bennett claim-
ing first place finishes in
the two-day competition at
the Highlands Ridge North
course. This week's event is
today * (Thursday) at Golf
Hammock County Club. The
group will be at Torrey Oaks on
July 9, Harder Hall on July 16,
River Greens on July 22-23,
Placid Lakes on July 30 and
Lake Wales Country Club on
Aug. 6. The two-day champi-
onship will be at the Sun 'N
Lake course.
In all, a dozen Hardee golfers
participated in last week's two-
day event. Miller won the boys
15-16 with an 86-83 for a 169
total, two strokes up on his
nearest competitor Sean Garrer.


Lincoln Saunders was fourth,
Taylor Barlow one stroke back
for fifth, and Justin Bromley
and Dalton Hewett followed
along.
The only Hardee golfer in the
boys 17-18 group was Grayson
Lambert, who placed sixth.
Hardee again placed one-two
in the boys 13-14 group, with
Bennett in just ahead of team-
mate William Beattie, two
strokes behind. Among the
other 12 in that age group were
Trenton Moon and Bradley
Brewer.
Hardee's final golfers were
siblings Kara Norris, fifth in the
girls ages 14-18 and Garrett
Norris, fourth in the boys.9-10.
"We've been fortunate with
the weather and I'm hoping
even more kids will come out.
The age groups are very com-
petitive and it's great to see the
kids working hard to improve
their games," said junior tour
director Andy Kesling.

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

DESIGNED FOR JOY
"According as His divine power hath given unto us all things
that pertain to life and godliness ..." II Peter 1:3.
If Christians have everything they need for happiness, why
aren't they all happy?
1.) Because some try to mix heavenly things with earthly.
This never works. Jesus said that the first and greatest command-
ment was to love the Lord they God with all thy heart, soul, mind
and strength. If you are going to seek heavenly joy, you will dis-
cover there is no room for serving the flesh.
2.) C.S. Lewis claims that not all believers want joy enough.
They have a shortage of desire. "Seek" said Jesus, "and you will
find." But nowhere does He promise people will find without seek-
ing.
3.) Many are looking for joy 'in all the wrong places. Just
where is joy? The Bible tells us, "In your presence is fullness of joy
and joy forever" Psalm 16:11. If God has created us, does it make
sense that we will find happiness anywhere but in Him? We have
been designed to receive the life of God and to live it out on .earth.
We have been designed for joy!
The devil is always trying to persuade us that God is dull and
worshiping Him is not fun. This is a distortion.
God is far better than fun! He is joy and peace and satisfaction.
He is better any day than getting drunk or high on drugs. It is not
so much that we need to avoid bad habits. It's that they don't real-
ly give solid and lasting pleasure!
If we're going to seek pleasure, let's go where there is plenty
of it - in God's company!


The Spirit Wind Ministry will
lead a gospel sing at the Victory
Praise Center in Bowling Green
on Saturday.
The Independence Day sing
will begin at 7 p.m. at the
church at 132 E. Main St.,

"SCHOOL REPORT


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
David Durastanti, county superintendent of schools, spoke to the Hardee County
Rotary Club on Wednesday, June 3, at the Java Cafe in Wauchula. He said the Hardee
tax roll this year is down 2.2. percent and that the Polk County tax roll is down 12.3 per-
cent. The Hardee school system began last year with $35.5 million in state funds but
will start this fall with $31 million. Earlier this year Hardee voters approved $1.6 million
in flexible funding by a 94 percent approval rate, he said. Hardee schools this year will
get $1.7 million in federal stimulus funds, and over $1 million in expenses has been cut
from the county budget. Federal stimulus funds are expected to end on July 1, 2111.
"Or finances are not good but they are not bad. We will budget for a possible three per-
cent state tax cut." Durastanti said the state has increased the FTE funding per student
by $28 but took out transportation and textbook money plus miscellaneous funds, for
a net decrease of $255 per student for the coming year. Hardee has just under 5,200
students. Shown (from left) are Sheriff Arnold Lanier, Durastanti, Candace Preston and
club President Juan DelaTorre.


Greetings from Fort Green!
Where, oh where, has this
summer gone? It is already July
and the young'ns start back to
school in August. Unbeliev-
able how fast the time flies.
More birthdays have been
celebrated at Fort Green.
Norman Alejandro and Jimmy
Sasser each celebrated getting
another year older! Happy
birthday wishes to both of
them.
The Pierstorffs had a nice
vacation down Fort Myers
Beach way. The best shelling
beach I have ever been to was
Sanibel off of the Fort Myers
area. I used to love to shell, and
always wanted to take a half-
day boat out to some of the
shell islands. I have been told
that is where you find the really
big and good shells. Maybe
next year!
I was driving west on 66
where there is plenty of grove
and pastures. There was a cow-
boy 'on his horse, with raincoat
tied behind the saddle, after one
stray yearling. That was a beau-
tiful sight. So many of the cattle
are herded by four-wheeler or
helicopter. I really doubt you
would find a horse trailer
behind, a pickup loaded with
horses at dinnertime except
Wauchula and possibly Arcadia.
This is our heritage, and fast
becoming a thing of the past!
It has been such a hot sum-
mer that the other day two
whooping cranes (I know they


are really sandhill cranes but
we've always called them
whooping cranes) were stand-
ing under an orange tree trying
to cool off.
Brianna Waters sang a pretty
song for the Sunday morning
special music. She always does
a super job.
The Mike Alexanders had a
lot of company this past week-
end. Son Dwayne got married
on Saturday. It was a beautiful
wedding. Roberta's parents,
brother and sister and families
were among the out-of-town
guests. Mike's daddy, John, was
down from Tennessee. It was
great to see them.
So many people stop me on
the street to comment on the
Fort Green News. Most of them
will remind me that Ms. Zula
always wrote, "A good time
was had by all." It is amazing
what people will remember.
Well, I was talking-to Bess
Stallings and she, true to every-
one else, mentioned the column
and how Ms. Zula always said
they carried someone to the
doctor and "a good time was
had.by all." She said that over
the years when she correspond-
ed with her mother, they each
would have Ms Zula's saying at
the end of the letter! I guess that
was with tongue in cheek!
Patty D. Crawford introduced
herself to me last Saturday at
the Alexander wedding. She
was telling the ones at her end
of the table that she took The


Herald-Advocate even though
she no longer lived in Hardee
County. She said she read the
Obituaries, Way Back When
and the Fort Green News, in
that order first before reading
any other portion of the paper!
Beth Sasser was sitting next
to her and told her who I was,
and she came on down and
introduced herself. She lives in
Sebring: She said her uncle and
Mark Silverman, my late broth-
er-in-law, were best friends in
school and best man at each
other's weddings. Mr. Young
was silting across from Dennis
Sasser, and after talking discov-
ered they were related. Ain't it a
small world!
Supper is being served at Fort
Green at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays
until school starts. The meals
. are $5 for adults and children
free. Faye Davis is the main
chef.
Jack and Linda White jour-
neyed over from Lake Placid to
attend church. Everyone was
happy to see them. He is still a
little weak from his hospital
stay.
Mark your calendar for July
18. The church is planning a
trip to a restaurant in Ellenton.
Sign up if you want to go, as
reservations will be made.
July 25 will be a workday for
the Methodist cemetery. Ya'll
come.
Please pray for one another
and call me with the news!


You're invited to join the celebration!


Eddie Hunt
and
Clark Zelyk
will receive
Boy Scoutings
highest award -

Jeremy Freeze, manager of the Sleep Center at 457 W. Carlton St. and a service of
Florida Hospital Wauchula, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday of last
week at the Panda Restaurant. The center has two beds and is open four nights a week.
The most common form of sleep problem is sleep apnea, he said, where a person
stops breathing and then starts breathing again many times each night. He said sleep
restores bodies and minds, and without proper sleep people may suffer fatigue, irri-
tability, depression, reduced attention and concentration, reduced memory, more fre-
quent illness, lost productivity, and workplace mishaps or car crashes. Pictured (from
left) are Charles Matheny, Roy Petteway, Freeze and Dan Graham.

July 2, 2009, The Herald-Advocate 7B


I WayFI Back WhenI


This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida
Advocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-
Advocate...
75 Years Ago
Wauchula is to have another
motion picture theatre, an-
nounced W.C.'House, who has
already secured a desirable
building corner and has com-
menced hauling materials to the
lot. It will be located on the
northeast corner of Main Street
and Seventh Avenue, opposite
the Kilgore Store, and is consid-
ered one of the finest locations
in town. It will have a seating
capacity of 400. A balcony can
be added later.
Two hundred Hardee Count-
ians attended beef and pork
canning demonstrations held in
College Hill, Lemon Grove,
Popash and Oak Grove this
week. Highlands and DeSoto
county agents and a federal
emergency demonstration agent
showed the canning demonstra-
tions.

Wauchula is expecting its
biggest crowd in nine years at
the monster Fourth of July cele-
bration. Over 100 hoppers will
compete in the frog-jumping
contest. There will be a free fish
fry. Five thousand pounds of
fish have been bought along
with all other necessities. There
will be an Orange Belt baseball
game between Arcadia and
Bowling Green, followed by
horse racing at the municipal
airport. A professional wrestler
,will pull a car full of five grown
people and there will be a
wrestling card under the flood-
lights later in the evening.
Dancing will begin at 9 p.m.
Chapman's Dry Goods .is
having a Spectacular Sale.
Men's $5 dress shoes are going
for $3.50 while they last. Fine
silk socks are three pair for $1.
Boys sports pants and shirts are
reduced.
50 YEARS AGO
A high bond of $250 was set
for a Miami man charged with
stealing a speaker from the
Starlite Drive-In Theatre.
Sheriff Odell Carlton said 'the
man was arrested shortly after
midnight after he had driven out
of the theater. The speaker was
found in the trunk of his car.
"The theater has lost 31 speak-
ers in the last year, and Judge
Clyde Maddox said he is really


going to crack down on anyone
convicted of taking one of
them. That's why the bond was
so high," explained Carlton.

A campaign to raise $300,000
for the construction of a public
hospital in Hardee - tty has
been given a firm foundation
with a charter for the formation
of the Peace River Memorial
Foundation. When the
$300,000 is raised, it will be
matched by the federal govern-
ment under the Hill-Burton Act,
giving a base of $600,000, said
committee member Dr. W.L.
Howard.

Mayor Bartley Sapp and
Utilities Commissioner Wilbur
King urged Zolfo Springs citi-
zens to form a garden club,
beautify the street and help
clean up the town, "so the rest
of the county won't be ashamed
of Zolfo Springs."

A directory of Wauchula mer-
chants who give S&H Green
Stamps includes Bay Street Ser-
vice Station, Red & White Gro-
cery, Slaughter Motor Shies,
Rutland's Radio & TV, Ellis
Texaco Service and Newell's
Jewelry.
25 YEARS AGO
Curtis Ezelle, 62, wants to set
a state record. "No tax collector
in Florida has ever been elected
10 times," he said. He an-
nounced Monday that he is run-
ning for his 10th four-year
tearm. He says he has earned
and given the county over
$538,000 above expenses for
the last four years.

Construction has begun on
the 109,000-square-foot shop-
ping center to be called Hardee
County Centre. It will be on a
12.91-acre tract across from
Wauchula Cemetery. Estimated
cost of construction is $1.199
million. It will include a Wal-
Mart, Kash 'N Karry and
Beall's clothing store.
A recent parolee from
Laritana Correctional Institution
was arrested Monday night by
Dep. Earnest Lovett, who
charged the 21-year-old with
possession of marijuana and
possession of marijuana with
intent,.to deliver. The man, was
paroled in January after serving
2-112 years on a five-year sen-
tence for burglary.

Nick's Burgers & Pizza
offers a two-piece chicken
snack, with biscuit, for $1.19; a


nine-piece chicken box with
five biscuits for $5.69; and a
15-piece chicken family pack
for $7.79. Pizza prices vary
from large plain cheese for
$5.50 to a large Supreme for
$9.75.
10 YEARS AGO
After passing out report cards
for decades, Hardee County
schools each got one last week.
As they came in, 78 schools
around the state were identified
as failing by the.state's new "+
Plan For Education." In Hardee,
it was C all around.

Sprint's telephone-book recy-
cling was a rousing success in
Hardee County schools, with
over 4,000 directories and
North Wauchula Elementary
School as the winner. It re-
ceived a check for $300.

Rhodeside Records and Hill's
Midway present a CD release
party for local rock & roll
artists Bushel Foot from 9 p.m.
to midnight. A debut CD will be
on sale. Attendees must be 21 or
older. ID will be required.

a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department's Tallahassee Office, 2600 Blair
Stone Road, M.S. 3545, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400, at phone number (850)245-8589.

The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, withinfourteen days of receipt of notice. The
procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision may
petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition mustucontain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee,.Florida 32399-
3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the tiie for
filing.a.petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of .
GeneraTCounii before the end of the time period for filing a petitionrfor arnadministiative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida
Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who
has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of
filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt
of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another
party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following
information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the
proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the
determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate;
S (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action;
S (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the
Department's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the
Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become
a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The election
may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the
applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The
agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The
agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for
filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.

As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the
time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding an administrative hearing and
issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of
the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must
enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests
that would be.affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in
writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain
available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes.

Women's League Has Twin Leaders PONYTAIL CHAMPIONS


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Despite thundershowers and
cancelled ,games, the 2009
Women's Softball League got
five of eight games completed
in the last two weeks.
At the end of last Thursday's
games, there were dual leaders.
Holy Child Catholic has a 3-0
record and First Methodist
Church of Wauchula is at 2-0.
The game June 18 between
them was rained out and they
are not scheduled to meet again
during the season.
First Christian Church split
games last Thursday and
dropped from the ranks of the
unbeaten, now sporting a 2-1
record. Behind these leaders are
San Alfonso's Chapel, which
defeated First Christian, fol-
lowed by Alpha & Omega/Free-
dom Ministries, New Vision
Worship Center and New Hope
Baptist.
Backtracking to June 16, the
early game saw Holy Child run
past San Alfonso 19-9.
Liberty Mushrush and Kris-
tina Garcia paced Holy Child
with four scores apiece. Sus-
anna Hernandez added triple
tallies, Linda two runs and
Aurora Santiago and Nora
Campos one each.
San Alfonso scores all its
runs in the fifth and sixth
innings. In the fifth, it was
Veronica Castanon, Melinda


and Maria coming home.
Crossing home in the sixth were
Rosie, Rosalia, Gloria, Irma,
Monica and Sasha.
In the June 16 nightcap, First
Methodist shut out New Vision
12-0.
Meagan Smith, Jennifer
Bryant and Aimee Dellepere
each put a pair of runs on the
board for First Methodist.
Adding solo scores were
Shauntee Hines, Elene Salas,
Diane Brummett, Elizabeth
Macias, Heather Refoure and
Norma Jones.
Brittany McMillian was
stranded twice for New Vision.
Also left on base were Chrystal
McDuffie, Beverly Pauley,
Valerie Smith and Hailey.
There were no games on June
18 because of rainstorms.
Only one game was complet-
ed on June 23 before the rains
came. Holy Child won the early
game 20-0 over New Hope.
Santoyo, Mushrush and Her-
nandez again led Holy Child,
with three runs apiece. Jaime
Buckley, Danika Briones, Sus-
anna Castillo and Lucy Garcia
each chipped in with twin
scores, and Rosa Villegas,
Irene Braddock and Kristina
Garcia each added a run.
Kaitlyn, Summer M., Jessica
and Sharon were all stranded
for New Hope.
There was a full evening of
action last Thursday, with First


Christian playing in both of
them. In the opener, San
Alfonso slipped past First
Christian 25-21.
Francisca Olvera smacked a
triple and double, and Maggie
Olvera and Rishonea Lampley
each doubled for San Alfonso.
Castanon, Maria A., Melinda,
and both Olveras each circled
the bases three times. Dellia and'
Percila added twin scores and
Liza, Lampley, Gloria F., Irma
Arce, Carman and Rosalia
added a run apiece.
For First Christian, Erica
Deaton and Angel Lang each
crossed home plate four times.
Sandy Driskell, Kimberly Mill-
er, Logan Harned and Selina
Ureste added twin tallies and
Tara Santoyo, Jessica Hayes,
Stacy Gough, Kacey Hayes and
Lori Crouse each put a run on
the board.
In the late game, First
Christian came back to win 25-
5 over New Hope.
Santoyo tripled and doubled
twice and Gough doubled twice
for First Christian. Driskell,
Miller, Santoyo and Deaton
were four-score batters. Gough
added three runs.
Jessica M., Monica R. Kait-
lyn H., Jaime Buckley, and
Summer M. scored for New
Hope. Beth Radford was
stranded, as were Monica R.,
Summer M. and Melanie.

In the controversial literary work, "Uncle Tom's Cabin" by Harriet Beecher Stowe, there is a char-
acter called Evangeline St. Clare. She is better know by the name Little Eva.
The Irving Berlin song, "How Deep is the Ocean" contains only one line that is not a question.
The one nonquizzical line is "I'll tell you no lie."
The pretzel was first made by monks in southern Europe as reward for children who learned
their prayers. It is shaped to represent the crossed arms of a child praying.

SEEDS
FROM
S, ' THE
m SOWER



There was a couple that was
well matched. They fought
each other to a standstill.
One day they agreed to bury
the past, but the wife kept
bringing it up.
"Dear," he said, "you prom-
ised to forgive and forget."
"Right," she answered, "but
I don't want you to forget that
I've forgiven and forgotten."
But true love will give, give
in, and forgive.
It's slow to suspect, quick to
trust; slow to condemn, quick
to justify; slow to offend,
quick to defend; slow to
expose, quick to shield; slow
to belittle; quick to Appreciate;
slow to take offense, quick to
forgive and forget.

struggling to emerge. That piece of paper launched*a
revolution which produced a nation.
The paper on which the Declaration of
Independence was written became so fragile that, in
1894, it was permanently sealed in a steel case to
protect it. The original may have faded, but its ideas
and words are etched forever in the soul of our nation.

Men's League Moves Slowly


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Four of the eight games
played were decided by close
margins.
In fact, a pair were one-run
decisions as the Men's Com-
munity Softball League contin-
ued to battle each other and
thundershowers.
At the end of last week, there
were twin leaders in Division I
and only one unbeaten squad in
Division II. In Division I, both
La Floresita and Farm Credit
have 3-0 records, while Fuego's
is at 2-0 to lead Division II.
Other teams in Division I are
Charlotte's Web Pub, Western
Pleasure Karoake, CF Indust-
ries and Country Club. In Divi-
sion II, the remaining squads
are Hardee Merchants, Neme-
sis, Legion of Doom, Mosaic,
Blacklist and FINR (Florida
Institute for Neurologic Re-
search).
Backtracking to June 16, both
games on Field 4 were nail-
biters. In the opener, Charlotte's
Web nipped Western Pleasure
14-13.
Mark Jones tripled and four
players doubled for Charlotte's.
Rocky Sonnier, Jasper Beam
and Adam Cartwright each cir-
cled the bases twice and seven
others touched home once.
Western countered with four
hits and a pair of scores from
Eric Mushrush and three hits
and three runs apiece from
Jessie Aguilar and Mike
Wetherington. Roy Rodriguez,
Johnathan Pleger and Staz
Macias each added twin scores.
In the Field 4 closer, Farm
Credit slipped past CF 18-15.
Justin Conerly homered and
doubled and Chris Knight
banged a pair of doubles for
Farm Credit. T. J. Mitchell and
Phillip McGee each had three
hits.
For CF, Josh Schneider
tripled and Mike Baker, Shay
Baker and Weston Johnson each
doubled. Shay. Baker and
Schneider were the only triple-
tally batters.
Meanwhile, on Field 3,
Nemesis downed the Peace


River Electric Cooperative
Inc.'s Legion of Doom 15-9.
Elias Ramirez and Miguel
Santoyo both tripled and Fran-
cisco Prieto doubled for Neme-
sis. Miguel Santoyo and Prieto
were the only three-score bat-
ters. John McBride, Jesse Rey-
es, Ram Briones and Ramirez
had twin trips to home plate.
For PRECo, Jeffery Albritton
doubled among his three hits.
Rodger Brutus, Ryan Hays and
Albritton each crossed home
plate twice.
In the Field 3 nightcap, it was
Fuego's 23, Hardee Merchants
12.
Matt Bowling homered
among his three hits for Fue-
go's. Fred Hodges and Doyle
Tyson also homered. Raul
Garcia joined Bowling in com-
ing home three times each.
Eight other batters each scored
twice.
Mike Long homered twice,
Lester Hornbake homered and
L.P. Hornbake, Nate Lee and
Brad Gilliard doubled for Hard-
ee Merchants. L.P. Hornbake
was the only triple-tally batter.
Games on June 18 were
rained out. There was only one
game on each field on June 23
before the rains came. In the
early game on Field 2, Mer-
chants beat Nemesis 16-8.
Brent Gilliard, Lester Horn-
bake and Lamar Gilliard each
homered for Merchants. Brad
Gilliard banged a pair of dou-
bles and Glenn Bergens also
doubled. Lamar Gilliard was
the only three-score batter.
For Nemesis, Ramirez home-
red, McBride tripled and
Ronnie Hedrick doubled. Eight
different players each put a run
on the board.
Back on Field 4, it was anoth-
er close encounter, as La
Floresita edged CF 13-11.
Felix Salinas and Rene
Benevidez each doubled twice
for La Floresita. Willie Gilliard
and Bobby Flores each also
doubled. Salinas scored all
three times he got on base.
Eddie Strange added twin tal-
lies.
For CF. Shawn Rivers home-


red, Johnson tripled and both
Daniel Rucker and Logan
Thomas doubled. Schneider
and Tater Phillips were the only
two-score batters.
Last Thursday's early game
on Field 4 was a thriller, when
Nemeis outlasted Blacklist 19-
18.
Ramirez and Rigo Briones
each doubled for Nemesis.
Miguel Santoyo scored all three
times he got on base. Briones
also scored three times.
McBride, Ramirez and Prieto
added two runs apiece.
For Blacklist, Briant Shu-
mard homered and Justin
Painter doubled three times.
Brian Schofield hit a triple and
a doubled and Cody Greene
doubled twice.
In the Field 4 late game,
Legion of Doom downed FINR
21-13.
Leadoff batter Brian Alexy
smacked three doubles among
his five hits and five scores for
Legion. Bill Alexy, Billy Alexy

Farm Credit. Keith Revell and
Dale Carlton added three scores
apiece.
For Charlotte's, Ryan

By CORY ARNOLD
Special To The Herald-Advocate

Q: What was your dream job?
A: An artist mostly doing oil paint-
ings of nature settings..
Q: What was your favorite pas-
time?
A: When I was 4 I did piano lessons
and did that for 14 years, even played
at places like New York Town Hall and
Julliard School of Music.
Q: What was your favorite TV
show?
A: Well, my father had control of
the TV so I didn't really have a favorite
TV show.
Q: At what age did you get your
first car?
A: I never really had a car of my
own, I either drove my dad's or my
husband's.
Q: What were the hotspots back
then?
A: A lot of school activities, like
plays and dances and even a thing we
called sock dances.
Q: Did you ever have a pet?
A: When I was a kid we had a shep-
erd collie mix called Poochie. Other
than that, I didn't have another pet until
I got married.

growing up? ,
r C*


A: Not really, except to keep my
room clean and make my bed.
Q: Were you a church-going per-
son?
A: Yes, always, and I still am. You
can say I am very church oriented.
Q: Did you ever go out of state?
A: I went to New York six times a
year for 14 years, also Pennsylvania to
see family.
Q: Did you listen to radio stations
and which were your favorites?
A: Yes and there were so many
good ones, like "Shadow,"
"Gangbusters," soap operas and so on.
Q: What was your favorite sub-
ject in school?
A: Well, it definitely was not math!
I liked English, but loved anything that
had to do with history.
Q: What was your favorite thing
to cook back then?
A: My mom didn't let me near the
kitchen. She was the ultimate cook.
Q: Did you enjoy your senior year
of high school?
A: It was OK. I was the lead in the
school play, and fourth out 56 of my
class and even got engaged that year.
Q: How many people lived in
your household?
A: Four for 15 years, then my moth-
er had two more kids.
Q: What was something you
always wanted as a kid and did you
get it?
A: For my father to come home
from WWII, and I got my wish after he
traveled all over Europe to get here.
Q: What type of punishment did
your parents hand out if you did
something wrong?
A: Mostly just the silent treatment,
but sometimes got grounded for a
while.

The flower is the poetry of
reproduction. It is an example
of the eternal seductiveness of
life.
-Jean Giraudoux


He took the picture from the shelf,
and gently touched the frame.
He said that she had been his wife,
that Nellie was her name.

They'd been our nearest neighbors,
and Nell, Mom's closest friend.
I vowed I'd come to see them,
when I came back home again.

I'd roamed these southern woodlands,
like something free and wild,
and shared the joys of childhood,
with Ben, their only child.

But young men die for freedom,
that others free might live.
Young Ben left his homeland,
and gave all he had to give.

Nellie died in springtime,
and Dan was left alone.
I wept at Nellie's passing,
as though she'd been my own.

I had not the heart to tell him,
the picture thathe held,
was one of trees and flowers,
and not his darling Nell.

His dim old eyes had failed him,
the years had done their part.
I'd seen the picture with my eyes,
He'd seen it with his heart.
