14-Year-Old Boy Drowns In Peace River


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 14-year-old Wauchula boy
drowned in the Peace River
during countywide July 4th hol-
iday festivities in Pioneer Park.
Sevenns St. Louis, of 2059
Petteway Ave., jumped into the
river late Saturday afternoon,


but did not come back out. His
body was discovered by divers
the next day.
"It comes down to a tragic
accidental drowning," Maj.
Randy Dey of the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office said on
Tuesday.
Sevenns had arrived at the


park at about noon that day, to'
participate and help with a
church picnic, Dey said. Later,
he was seen at the boat ramp in
the park, jumping into the
water.
"We conducted interviews
with, everyone who said they
saw him go in the water and, to

a person, they all said he
jumped in on his own," he
noted. Dey said varied reports
of pushing or taunts or dares
"are strictly rumors in the com-
munity."
The major did say some chil-
dren and a woman on the river-
bank saw Sevenns jump into the
water at about 5:15 p.m. When
he was not seen again, some
bystanders called the 911 emer-
gency line while others went in
search of the sheriff, who was at
the park for the county celebra-
tion.
A search-and-rescue opera-
tion began immediately, Dey


said.
Responding to the riverbank
and the swollen waters them-
selves were officers with the
Hardee County Sheriffs Office,
the Sheriffs Posse, the Polk
County Sheriff's Office, the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office, the Zolfo Springs Police
Department, the Wauchula

Commission and - Hardee
County Fire-Rescue.
Volunteer divers and airboat
owners also assisted in the
search, he said.

Brings World Attention
By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Herald-Advocate Intern
Almost everyone can remember the
little chimpanzee that did the moonwalk
with the King of Pop, Michael Jackson,
during his world tour in Japan. What
many people don't know is where that
cute little superstar ended up.
"Bubbles" was born in a biomedical
laboratory and taken from his mother as
an infant to be sold into the entertain-
ment business. He was purchased by
Jackson and appeared in many televi-
sion shows, movies and music videos.
After growing too big for Jackson
and his family to handle, Bubbles was
moved to an animal compound in
California.
Because of the love and dedication of
animal conservationist Patti Ragan,
Bubbles and his friend, Sam, were both

moved to the Center for Great Apes in
Wauchula in 2005. Along with moving
Bubbles, Sammy and the many other
chimps that were rescued, they also had
the animal trainer shut down his busi-
ness.
With the sudden death of Jackson,
people from all over the world have
been trying to track down where the
famed Bubbles is.
"It's interesting that people want to
know how Bubbles is now, after he
spent 20 years in an animal compound
in California. Wauchula has been men-
tioned in articles by 'Time,' 'People' and
'E-Online,' as well as many talk shows
and radio stations. We have received
phone calls from California, Australia,
Japan, Germany and Europe. The reac-
tion has been a bit overwhelming," says

Bridge Detour Ahead


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Essential bridge work on
Parnell Road will close a por-
tion of-it for several weeks.
Work will begin MOnday on
the single-lane wooden bridge,
and will close access through
Highlands Hammock State Park
to get to Sebring.
People accustomed to using
that route to get to Avon Park or
Sebring will have to use SR 66
to go to U.S. 27 South or SR 64
to go to Avon Park.
Parnell Road will be closed
between Steve Roberts Special
and North Hammock Road for


about three weeks to remove
and replace the upper portion of
the bridge.
Advance signs have been in
place since June 24 in several
locations to advise the public of
the upcoming detours. There
are signs at Parnell Road and
SR 64, the intersection of
Skipper Road and Parnell Road,
and at the intersection of North
Hammock and Parnell roads.
The Hardee County Road
Department understands the
difficulties the detours create
and thanks citizens for their
patience, said Road Department
Supervisor Mark Frazier.

Kelly's Column



Wauchula made international news this past week as a retire-
ment residence for pop star Michael Jackson's former chimpanzee
Bubbles. The chimp is at Patti Ragan's Center for Great Apes.
First Baptist Church associate pastor Alan Permenter referred
to Bubbles as Michael Jackson's monkey. Pastor Ken Smith said
Bubbles was an orangutan. Those statements sent me to the dictio-
nary on Monday.
A monkey is any mammal of the order primates, including
anthropoid apes but excluding humans.
An orangutan is a large long-armed anthropoid ape that inhab-
its Borneo and Sumatra. Its height is 4 1/2 feet with a 7 1/2-foot
arm spread.
A chimpanzee is a large somewhat arboreal anthropoid ape of
equatorial Africa. It is adapted for knuckle-walking and noted for
its intelligence and human-like behavior, standing about four feet
tall.
Chimpanzees make cute pets when they are young and are
often used in the entertainment field but at age 5 or 6 become too
big and hard to manage.
Some things over the weekend seemed quite normal. Roger
Federer won Wimbledon for his record-setting 15th major tennis
title. Tiger Woods won the AT&T golf .tournament he hosted,
adding over $1 million to his foundation to help kids and putting
him once again atop the golf world standings. Lance Armstrong is
doing well in the famous Tour de France bicycling event. He has
come out of retirement.
America recently lost some famous people including Michael
Jackson, pinup queen and actress Farrah Fawcett, TV personality
and Johnny Carson's sidekick Ed McMahon, and TV pitchtman
Billy Mays.
The Tampa Bay Rays last year won the American League pen-
nant but this season are not on pace to even make the playoffs, trail-
ing Boston and New York in the AL East. The Rays would need a
strong second half.
Joe Gilliard, 68, a life-long Wauchula citrus grower, passed
away over the weekend. He was friendly and well liked. His father
Henry was also a citrus grower and for many. years operated a
grove caretaking business.
The Wauchula Elks Lodge, established inr 1946, is closed and
faces an uncertain future.
Regular unleaded gasoline dropped to $2.59 a gallon this week
after reaching a recent high of $2.65 a gallon. Any price reduction
is appreciated.
The weather in Hardee has turned a little dryer and cooler late-
ly but warm summer weather will remain for the next two or three
months.
L ,
Five major football magazines have the University of Florida
,rated No. 1 in the nation in the 2009 college football forecasts. The
SGators have won the NCAA' football title two of the past three
years. This will be quarterback Tim Tebow's senior season.

Dey said the waters and
riverbanks were searched for
hours, with the activity called
off at midnight. "We had.boats
with lights, we patrolled the
banks, but eventually it became
too dangerous and we called it
off for the night,"' he said.
A law enforcement vehicle
remained on scene through the
night, he added.
Dey said the search resumed
at 6:30 on Sunday morning.
Divers formed a team and
began at the boat ramp, where
Sevenns was last seen, and
spread out in a line then slowly
made their way down the river.
The divers studied the waters
for 200 to 300' yards, then
returned to the boat ramp and
started over again, the major
described.
On their third pass, they
found Sevenns, he said.
The boy was discovered
within 30 feet of where he went
into the water, Dey said. He was
in about four to six feet of
water.
Dey said Sheriff Arnold
Lanier and the family's pastor
delivered the news to the family
at their home.
Dey went on to thank all the
agencies and all the volunteers
who turned out to help in this
tragedy.
Sevenns is the son of Dieulira
and Secifie St. Louis. He is sur-
vived by three brothers and two
sisters: Lunior, Jean Marie,
Jozie, Loveline and Lousha.
Funeral services will be held
this Saturday at 10 a.m. at Faith
Temple Church of God.
Visitation is Friday night, from
6 to 8, at Robarts Garden
Chapel.
A car wash and windshield
cleaning will be held Friday at
Wal-Mart to raise money to
defray funeral expenses.
Donations also may be
brought to any Wauchula State
Bank branch, Mike Manley
CPA in Wauchula, Faith Temple
or the Hardee County Youth
Coalition. Checks may be mail-
ed to P.O. Box 536, Wauchula,
FL 33873.



Nutrition

Notes
Q: I am told that quercetin
is a compound that helps pre-
vent cancer. What foods can I
find it in if I don't want to
take it as a supplement?
A: Quercetin is a phytochem-
ical - a natural compound
found in plant foods - that
belongs to a large family of
compounds called flavonoids.
Laboratory studies suggest that
quercetin can provide both anti-
cancer and heart-protective
effects. It seems to serve as an
antioxidant and anti-inflamma-
tory agent, as well as helping to
control abnormal cell growth
and deactivate carcinogens. But
you are quite right to be think-
ing of food as the best source.
It's not clear how well our body
absorbs flavonoids like
quercetin. Also, the benefits we
see in people who eat diets high
in quercetin and other
flavonoids may come from
quercetin interacting with a
whole host of nutrients and
phytochemicals. . Many
quercetinn supplements provide
much larger amounts than
found in the diet; that may
sound like a good thing, but
research in the last few years
has been .showing that we can
get too much of a good thing
when it comes to antioxidant
nutrients. Foods that provide
- the most quercetin are onions,
apples (with the skin) and fresh-
ly brewed tea. These are high-
level sources, but so are aspara-
gus; green peppers; romaine
and leaf lettuce; blueberries,
blackberries and cranberries;
sweet cherries; and pears. Focus
on a variety and abundance of.
vegetables and fruits, and you'll
get quercetin and a lot more.
Q: Is fiber content reduced
when vegetables are cooked?
A: No, cooking doesn't lead
to loss or destruction of vegeta-


center owner and director Ragan.
Phone calls, e-mails and television
cameras have overwhelmed the usually
quiet center and its operators. Questions.
often amount to the "inappropriate,"
Ragan noted, asking if Bubbles was
saddened by Jackson's death or
depressed, if he still does the moon-,
walk, if he would be going to the funer-
al and if people could come visit him.
Although the sudden interest in
Bubbles is growing all over the world,
Ragan is hoping to turn this into a posi-
tive thing for the sanctuary.
"We hope to use this opportunity to
inform people on the issues that go
along with selling and training animals
for the entertainment business," said
Ragan.
However cute and cuddly the animals
may seem on screen, many people don't
realize the harsh work and,tactics some-
times used by trainers.
"As chimps get older, they realize
they don't have to do what their trainers
say. In order to get them to work, train-
ers will sometimes use harsh tactics.
Chimps do not smile like humans do.
That facial expression is only used
when a chimp is scared or nervous. In
order to get the chimps to smile, the
trainers will sometimes shock or scare
them," said operations manager Tina
Gilbert-Schenck.
Although this chimpanzee once
shared the stage with the King of Pop,
he is happy and at peace in his new
home.
He also has developed a very like-
able and gentle personality since arriv-
ing at the Center for Great Apes.
"Although Bubbles shares the alpha-
male status with his friend, Sam, he is
extremely gentle and compassionate
towards the other animals. Often baby
Stryker can be seen playing with him
and riding on his back," said Gilbert-
Schenck.
Along with a tender nature, Bubbles
can also be very sensitive and dramatic.
"If Bubbles has any type of scratch
or cut, no matter how big or small, he
immediately runs up to his caregiver
and asks for sympathy," said Gilbert-
Schenck- - - .. .
Although BubWleihas had a siguifi-
cant role in the history of Jackson and
his career, he is another example of
what happens to primates that are sold
to the entertainment industry and then
rejected when they turn about 6 or 7
years old.
"A lot of people don't realize what
these animals go through. Because they'
are taken from their mothers at a young
age, they don't learn how to be a chim-
panzee or how to have normal behav-
ior," said Gilbert-Schenck. ,
Bubbles is just one of the over 40
animals at. the Center for Great Apes.
Twenty-nine chimpanzees and 14
orangutans occupy the beautiful 120
acres at the sanctuary. Many of the
chimps and orangutans have also
appeared on the big screens.
Sammy, one of the orangutans,
appeared on "Baywatch," "Planet of the
Apes" and "Dunston Checks In."
Although many of the primates have
had their time in the spotlight, almost
all of the animals have had to endure
harsh living conditions and care from
their trainers or owners.
One of the orangutans, Mari, triagi-
cally lost both of her arms when her
mother damaged her limbs beyond
repair. Mari and her mother were both
in a stressful' and harmful situation in a
biomedical lab, prompting the mother's
action.
Because many of the primates have


bles' dietary fiber. The only rea-
son fiber may change is if you
remove the peel when cooking,
which will reduce fiber content.
In fact, because vegetables
often "cook down," meaning
that a larger portion when raw
becomes smaller when cooked,
cooked vegetables may even be
slightly higher in fiber than an
equal portion of its raw form.
Once we become interested in
the progress of the plants in
our care, their development
becomes a part of the rhythm
of our own lives and we are i
refreshed by It


endured such tragedies as being locked
in small boxes, lack of nutrition and
never seeing the light of day, the staff at
the Center for Great Apes works hard to
provide the animals with the best care
and,comfort possible.
Each animal receives a nutritious diet
of fresh fruits and vegetables, health ,
care from a vet at Lowry Park Zoo, den-
tal care and a spacious area to playland
rest in.
The animals have the option to stay
in one of the 12 three-story-tall dome-..
enclosures or sleep in one of the night
houses inside. The night houses are
equipped with fans for the hot summers
and heaters for the winter. The indoor
and outdoor facilities are also monitored
through closed-circ uit security cameras.
The animals also have a chance to
interact with each other through the
over 3,000 feet of elevated tunnel and
chute system throughout the sanctuary.
Because of the chutes, the primates are
able to walk to and from their dentist
appointments and checkups, to avoid
loading them in crates.
To prevent another disaster by a hur-
ricane, all night houses and enclosures
are built to withstand the storms.
The chimps and orangutans spend
their days relaxing in the sun, playing
with the ropes, swings and enrichment
toys, and partaking in the activities pre-
sented by the caregivers.
"These animals belong in the wild.
However, for many of the chimps and
orangutans who were raised by humans,
it takes them a while to realize they are
animals. We want to provide animals
with a place to retire to and live in spa-
cious environment with dignity," said
Ragan.
In order to provide these animals
with the peaceful environment.,they
deserve, this non-profit organization
must rely on individual membership,
private donor support and grants from
philanthropic and animal protection
foundations.
It costs about $15,000 an ape to pro-
vide the animal with health care, a
nutritional diet and care. About $900 to
2,000 a week is spent on food.
-Medicirnes are also expensi-ve. -Because
primates can get the#arme diseases as
'humans can, regular checkups and med-
ical care is a necessity.
Because the center is not a public
attraction and is not open to the public,
the only way a person can have a
behind-the-scenes view of the sanctuary
is through the membership program.
Membership, volunteerism, internships
and professional employment informa-
tion can be found at www.CenterFor-
GreatApes.org. You can also contact the
center at 767-8903 or send mail to
Center for Great Apes, P.O. Box 488,
Wauchula, FL 33873.
To donate much-needed items, you
can also visit the Web site's wish list
and see the items still needed by the
sanctuary. Items such as food, toys,
medical supplies, office supplies, clean-
ing and maintenance products are
important to keep the center going.
Anotherunique way you can help the
sanctuary and help stop the mistreat-
ment of apes is to write your senators
and congressmen. A possible bill,
Chimp Act of 2009, is going to protect
primates from biomedical labs, isolated
cages and other forms of mistreatment.
"This bill will allow apes to have a
better life, one that they deserve. It
could help save these endangered ani-
mals. These animals could disappear off
the face of the earth in 10 years if we
don't do something to stop it," conclud-
ed Ragan.

Samuels Continues

On PR Basin Board


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Bowling Green man has
been reappointed to the Peace
River Basin Board.
Paul Samuels, land lease
manager for Mosaic Fertilizer,
was renamed to the board by
Gov. Charlie Crist. His new
term began June 22 and contin-
ues through March 1, 2011.
Samuels was one of three
men retained on the board. The
others are Rufus Lazzell of
Punta Gorda and Fred Trippen-
see of Avon Park.
The Peace River Basin Board
includes portions of Charlotte,
DeSoto, Highlands, Polk and
Hardee counties. It is one of
eight such boards 'in the 16-
county Southwest Florida Water
Management District.
The boards offer guidance for
local programs specific to the
particular basin or area they

across mte country were stay-
at-home" dads that year.
To qualify, fathers had to
have at least one child under the
age of 15 and had to be out of
the labor force for more than
one year while their wives
worked outside of the home.
The more than' 140,000 men
who qualified for the "stay-at-
home" dad category cared for
245,000 children under the age
of 15.
In another sign of changing
times, 32 percent of fathers who
were the primary caregiver of
their preschool-aged children
regularly worked evening or
night shifts so that their spouses
could work during the day, indi-
cating that the days of the one
income household arealso a
thing of the past.

Running
In these trying economic
times, every dollar that can be
stretched becomes more valu-
able. While many industries
have taken a hit as the economy
has suffered through its darkest
period in decades, the auto
industry, particularly American
auto manufacturers, has suf-
fered greatly.
As the economy has sunk into
a recession, more and more
people are looking to get more
out of their vehicles. To get the
most out of your car or truck,
consider the following mainte-
nance tips to keep your car run-
ning smoothly as long as you
need it to.
* Drive more cautiously:
How you drive can have a very
positive or very negative impact
on your vehicle's lifespan.
When driving, accelerate and
brake as smoothly as possible.
Accelerating too quickly can
waste gas, costing you lots of
money, and prove very taxing to
your vehicle's engine. In addi-
tion, braking too hard can great-
ly decrease the life expectancy
of your brake pads.
* Stick to a maintenance
schedule: A vehicle can be like
a house in many ways, requir-


Smoothly
ing upkeep, cleaning and main-
tenance.
Check your automobile's
owner's manual for mainte-
nance guidelines, including
manufacturer recommendations
with respect to oil change
schedules as well as how fre-
quently to change transmission
fluid, power steering fluid and
the air . filter. Maintenance
schedules are often guidelines,
and as a car gets older it can..be
a better idea to get tune-ups
more frequently than even the
manufacturer recommends.
* Know what you're driving:
Another way' to increase your
vehicle's lifespan is to become'
more acquainted with the vehi-
cle's make and model. Because
cars are manufactured en
masse, individual makes and
models typically experience
similar problems as they get
older. Put online vehicle forums
to use so you're better prepared
for any potential problems that
might come as your car ages.
Knowing a car's weaknesses
can help you alter your driving
habits so you can negate those
weaknesses and keep the car
running smoothly as it gets
older.

Q: I have been going to church for years, but lately it just
seems it has become a routine, something I do without even
thinking about it. I miss the zeal and the excitement that I once
had. What has happened to me?
Signed, Bored
A: Like so many others, you have lost your first love.
*"In the second chapter of Revelation Jesus is talking to the
church of Ephesus, and He begins by bragging on what wonderful
works it has done. When we first look at this church, we get the
impression it did everything that was required; it labored for the
Lord with patience without fainting. But, Jesus says in the fourth
verse "Nevertheless I have something against you, because you
have left your first love."
You are not alone.
Many Christians who once were on fire for God have allowed
things to get in the way of their personal relationship with Him.
They continue to go through the routine that is expected of them,
reading their Bible, paying their tithes, and going to church. But,
deep down inside, they are still empty.
Remember, good works cannot replace your relationship with
God.
Since the Garden of Eden, God has desired to walk with man,
talk with man and have fellowship with man. Everyone starts out
excited. Then something happens. They fall into the trap of trying
to earn His approval and the approval of man, believing that the
more ministries they do the closer to God they will get. When it
does not work, they just take on something else, until they are still
empty but now also burned out on ministry.
When two people get married, there is 'a special spark there.
Being together is top priority. Nothing can come between the pas-
sion and love they feel for one another.
Then life begins to add things - children, jobs, bills, friends -
until their time together is no longer top priority. Falling away is a
,process'that takes place a little bit at a time and will sneak up on
you, until one day you realize how lonely and isolated you have
become. This is what has happened with your relationship with the
Lord.
My advice for you is to make it top priority to restore that first
love.
Your time with the Lord should be done above ministry and all
your good works. When we disconnect from the True Vine, then,
our work is done in vain.

Greetings from Fort Green!
I am not complaining about
the weather but it's hot and
even though we are north of
Wauchula, you cannot tell any
difference in the weather!
There is a 4-H Day Camp at
the 4-H Extension Office. 4-H
members from the Fort Green
club who are attending are
Kasie Powell and Kaylee Hoge-
nauer. They are learning educa-
tional items 'daily and doing
crafts. So far, everything I have
heard is good and lots of fun!
My granddaughter was so
impressed with the speakers she
said that next year Grandpa
could be one. When I asked
what did she think he could talk
about, her reply was hunting or
fishing. This is a sweet grand-
child, who thinks her grandpa
can do anything!
Randy and Faye Davis had,
their annual July 4th bash at
their home in Fort Green.
Randy cooked ribs, chicken and
pulled pork along with some
sausage. I think the sausage was
for the cooks to munch on while
spending the day cooking!
Anyway, Randy knows just the
right amount of seasoning etc.
to put on that meat. It was
scrumptious. Guests bring cov-
ered dishes, and it is always a
tremendous feast.
Before the prayer, everyone
gathers at the flagpole a.nd gives
the Pledge of Allegiance. It is a
good feeling. The young'ns
swim during the afternoon and
then everyone gathers near the
open field to watch a fireworks
display, the best in Fort Green!
Fort Green's newest newly
weds; Dwayne and Kim Alex-'
ander, were in attendance and
are living in our big city.
Speaking of the newlyweds,

unusual name.
The other day, Sherman and I
were watching a cowboy show
on the television and it was
such an old black-and-white

the Pledge, they omitted the

to remember when this was
added to the Pledge.
The Fort Green Baptist

vandals busy again. My grand-

we took anything from the
cemetery, we would be the next
one in it! This certainly made an
impression on us, and we never
even took a rose.
It is a shame that whoever is
messing up the cemetery does
not have any respect for a
cemetery. This time, they drove
over the gate, bending the lock-

WEATHER SUMMARY
High temperatures throughout the State reached, the 90s last
week. Nighttime lows were in the upper 60s and low 70s. In major
cities, temperatures ranged from average to three degrees above
average. The southern and central Peninsula collected the majority
of the precipitation. Most locations received at least an inch and a
half of rain, while several areas received two to four inches. Glades:
and DeSoto counties reported the most with 6.48 and 6.74 inches,
respectively. Rain was less plentiful in the Big Bend and Panhandle
regions with most receiving less than an inch of rain. Escambia and
Santa Rosai counties reported drought conditions.

FIELD CROPS
Peanut pegging was 49 percent complete compared to 52 per-
cent last year. Peanut condition was rated 3 percent poor, 18 per-
cent fair, 66 percent good, and 13 percent excellent. Soybeans, cot-
ton, and peanuts in the Panhandle were drought stressed. Cotton in
Okaloosa County was reported ,in good condition. Grasshoppers
took their toll on soybeans and some were replanted. Some soy-
bean fields in Holmes County experienced death of seedlings. Corn
growers in .Washington and Holmes counties were concerned about
pollination of the crop during these hot and dry weeks. Yield may
be significantly reduced for some field corn. Potatoes were har-
vested, but activity was declining. Hay was cut in the central
Peninsula with few rain delays. Soil moisture levels were short in
the Panhandle, while the southern and central Peninsulas was ade-
quate.

VEGETABLES
Few fields have vegetables remaining during this time of the
year. Some producers in the southern Peninsula treated fallow
fields for weeds. Light tomato harvests came from the Panhandle
and central Florida. Highlands County picked a few late watermel-
ons. Pumpkins were also growing in Highlands County, but recent
heavy rainfall reduced the crop's quality. Blackberries were har-
vested in Hernando County. Okra and avocados were marketed as
well.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture condition was
very poor to excellent with most fair to good. High temperatures
have been oppressive for cattle and especially difficult for dairies.
Cattle condition was mostly fair to good. In the central areas, the.
summer rainfall pattern was beneficial to pastures. Range and pas-
ture condition was mostly good. Stock ponds water levels were still
low. In the southwest, pasture was mostly good to excellent. Some
pastures were in poor condition due to localized flooding in low
lying areas. Cattle were in very poor to excellent condition with
most fair to good.-Statewide, cattle condition was very poor to
excellent with most fair to good.

CITRUS
Summer weather patterns were normal across the citrus-pro-
ducing areas. Temperatures reached the lower to mid-90s, two to
three days during the week and high 80s on the remaining days. All'
areas received at least some rainfall, with portions of the citrus belt.
receiving heavy downpours. The most rainfall recorded was in the
western citrus-producing region, where showers brought five inch-
es in one day. Growers in most areas reported trees in good condi-
tion. Cultural practices continued and included limited fertiliza-
tions, hedging, and the resetting of young trees. Some summer
sprays were being applied as rainfall permitted. Fresh fruit pack-
inghouses were closed for the season. The Valencia orange harvest
was nearly over as most of the remaining processing plants closed
for the season. Growers are now focusing on psyllid control using
both aerial and ground spraying.

Abby Duke is having a fun
vacation at the campground in

Janet, arranged for her to have
Sunday breakfast with Mickey.
Abby is an outgoing youngster
and you can bet she had a good

grandmother, Jean, decided to
relax at home. Sometimes this
is the best vacation.
Betty Walker is under the

Saturday and evidently pulled
something. She missed church
also. Please pray for her and all

I i BICYCLE CELEBRATION
Celebration Church added to Hardee County's celebration of the nation's independence by
providing a little independence of their own to local children last Saturday in the form of free
bicycles. Outreach Pastor Wade Johnson collects new and used bikes at the Jacksonville
campus of the church, then a team of three prepares the pedals for little feet, adjusting or
- i repairing tires, seats, brakes and chains, Hardee Campus Pastor Clint Hendry explained. The
- . . bicycles are then shipped to Hardee County for distribution. Hendry said the bike giveaways,
- which now total about 130, are meant to be a blessing to the community. The church's Willie
Gilliard echoed that by saying that as servants of Jesus Christ, church members find joy in
sharing His love and blessings. PHOTOS BV' FALPH HARRISON

Growers Making Tough Financial Decisions

Association Will Hold Meeting In Wauchula July 21


Overfertilized plants may be
beautiful but are otherwise
useless, like people whose
energies are devoted so com-


pletely to their appearance
that there is no other develop-

By BARBARA CARLTON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Florida citrus growers are
making tough financial deci-
sions to remain financially
sound. After receiving record
low prices for their 2008-09
crop, many growers are forced
to make cuts in caretaking prac-
tices.
The complicated battle to
control the spread of Greening
makes these production deci-
sions even tougher. Little is
known about the disease, mak-
ing research necessary. Yet,
when prices are at all-time lows
stemming from reductions in
consumer use and increases in
juice inventories, a dilemma
arises.
The question: If you don't in-
vest in research, there may not

A 28-year-old Zolfo Springs
man who admitted to engaging
in sexual activity with a 15-
year-old girl now carries the
label of sexual offender.
Pedro Martinez, of 3436 Elm
St., Apt. 1, was sentenced by
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle
in Hardee Circuit Court to six
years of sexual-offender proba-
tion for the second-degree
felony crime of lewd battery.
A second count of the same"
offense was dropped by the
prosecution in plea negotia-
tions.
In addition to the probation
term, the judge ordered Mar-
tinez classified as a sexual
offender, prohibited him from
any unsupervised contact with
children, placed him on a cur-
few and forbid him from pos-
sessing any pornographic mate-
rials.
Ezelle assessed $872 in fines
and court costs, a $350 public
defender fee and $100 in prose-

be any trees to produce fruit
'and, in turn, no juice to sell.
On the other-hand, if you don't
,market juice, fruit prices will
continue to decline and growers
can't afford to pay for the
increase in production practices
,'called for in the' war against
Greening.
This battle may become even
more complicated as growers
are handed more tools to battle
the disease. More products are
being labeled for citrus use to
control the disease vector, an
insect called psyllid. Research
is showing these products are
very effective in controlling
psyllid and, if applied in a coor-
dinated manner and timed prop-
erly, growers will be able to
reduce the amount and frequen-
cy of pest control


cution costs.
Martinez had been arrested
on the two counts of lewd bat-
tery by sheriffs Det. Russell
Conley on Jan. 25.
Conley said the case began
when a 15-year-old girl told her
mother she had been sexually
active with Martinez, a grown
man.
During an interview with the
detective, the girl said she had
engaged in relations with
Martinez twice, once at his
apartment and once in her bed-
room at her home. Martinez
never denied the activity,
Conley said.
Further, the man noted the
first occasion was about a
month earlier, and the second
was just the night before
authorities questioned him.
Martinez said he realized his,
actions were "disrespectful" to
the family, that he would take
responsibility, and then offered
to go to the girl's parents to talk
with them about their relation-
ship.


Most growers believe control
of the insect vector is the.most
immediate way to reduce the
spread of Greening.
Coordination may dictate a
statewide industry effort. The
arising questions are:
* Is this a worthwhile
activity?
* If this could reduce
individual grower costs,
better control the pests,
and possibly reduce the
incidences of Greening,
would growers be willing
to group together for the
benefit of all?
* If so, how should the'
effort be funded?
Growers are already self-tax-
ing themselves for advertising
and research. Growers could


Conley said Martinez was
reminded that it is against the
law for an adult to have rela-
tions with an underage person.
Martinez was then arrested.
Birth dates for Martinez in
official records vary, with jail
booking sheets listing June 16,
1981, making him 28 years of
age, and an arrest report show-
ing Oct. 13, 1969, which would
make him 39 years of age.

opt to increase or pay more to
currently collected taxes. They
could choose to fund the effort
with a new tax. They could
move funding from current
research projects or advertising
to fund the project, or they
could choose to stay at status
quo, funding their individual
efforts.
Each of these options comes
at a price. Obviously, growers
would prefer not to increase tax
assessments - who wouldn't
like to reduce their tax liability.
Paying additional taxes is
extremely difficult in these lean
times. Yet, moving money from
current research could delay
discovering the ultimate key to
controlling Greening, exceed-
ing all interim projects such as
controlling the vector.' Moving
money from advertising also
could allow consumer con-
sumption to continue to decline.
Growers would like to have
an easy choice and a silver bul-
let for industry problems.
Unfortunately, these tough
times call for tough decisions. It
is also unfortunate, only a few
growers step up as leaders.
Many times the decisions are
made by a few individuals
because other growers are not
involved in the process.
There is no better time to be
involved in the Florida citrus
industry. In these hard times
when critical decisions are
being made impacting grove
business, all growers should be
involved in their state and
regional organizations.
The Peace River Valley
Citrus Growers Association's
Board of Directors will discuss.
this issue in depth at its meeting
on July 21 at the First National
Bank of Wauchula. The meeting
will begin at 9 a.m. All associa-
tion members are invited to
attend and take part in the dis-
cussion.

.,. " Fish Busters
By Bob Wattendoif
"p "Florida Fish & Wildlife Cornemission

TAKE THE ANGLERS' PLEDGE!
We Floridians take our fishing seriously. The proof lies in the
actions we take to ensure a bright fishing future.
In the year between April 1, 2008, and March 31, 2009, a total
. of 695 Florida anglers took a pledge to introduce fishing to at least
one person a year who had not previously enjoyed the sport. More
"Anglers' Legacy" pledges came from Florida than from any other
state, last year.
Fishing continues to be one of the most relaxing and satisfying
ways for individuals to get outdoors, engage in a fun form of recre-
ation and reconnect with nature. Getting outdoors and being active
not only leads to a healthier lifestyle, but it also creates endless
opportunities for social interactions that can be much more fulfill-
ing, as they are away from the television, the phone and other inter-
ruptions.
In his, recent commencement address at the University of
Notre Dame, President Barack Obama related the story of Father
Ted Hesburgh, president emeritus of Notre Dame, who, as a mem-
ber of the Civil Rights Commission in 1964, helped recommend
the 12 resolutions that would become the Civil Rights Act. Asked
by President Dwight D. Eisenhower how he managed to lead the
commission to concurrence, Father Ted's response was, "They dis-
covered that they were all fishermen."
And so he quickly readied a boat for a twilight trip out on the
lake. They fished, and they talked. And they changed the course of
history. That is the power of'time spent on the water away from
other stresses, enjoying nature and communicating openly.
Beyond the benefits to the individual, research shows that each
fulfilled pledge results, on average, in the purchase of 3.2 fishing
licenses, which supports critical management and conservation
efforts here in Florida and helps ensure the future of recreational
fishing. Without those funds, especially in times as fiscally chal-
lenging as these, the state would have a difficult time ensuring safe
and sustainable fishing opportunities for all of our residents and
visitors.
Fortunately, a resident license costs only $15.50, and an aver-
age angler uses that license for 17 trips a year, each averaging more
than four hours.
Remember the Chinese proverb: "Give a man a fish.and you
feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a life-
time."
Each new angler who becomes an ambassador receives an
Anglers' Legacy decal and additional program communications.
There is also a rewards program that includes tailored newsletters,
special prizes and benefits to encourage ambassadors to keep on
sharing the sport.
To take the pledge yourself, go to www.takemefishing.org and
click on "community," then follow the path to the Anglers' Legacy
Pledge and enter FLFWC09 in the Partner Code field.
Some anglers are receiving reminders in the mail to renew
their fishing licenses. Anyone who renews their fishing license by

A Zolfo Springs man
employed as a corrections offi-
cer in DeSoto County has lost
his police certification after
robbing a man at gunpoint here.
Nicholas Andrew Vasquez,
26, of 730 W. Second St., was
charged with robbery with a
,deadly weapon and armed tres-
pass following two Jan. 17 inci-
dents in Wauchula Hills.
And in a plea agreement with
the State Attorney's Office, the
former charge was reduced to
aggravated assault and the latter
count was not prosecuted as
Vasquez agreed to change his
plea from not guilty.
Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle then withheld adjudica-
tion of guilt .in the case, and
sentenced Vasquez to two years
of supervised probation while
stripping him of his police certi-
fication.
The judge also assessed $520
in fines and court costs and a
$100 fee to cover prosecution
expenses.
In a Jan. 18 arrest report, Det.
David Drake of the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office said a
man was walking on Rainey
Boulevard the night before at
about 11:30 when a pickup
truck pulled up next to him and
stopped, with three men getting
out of the vehicle with guns. .

Perennials are the ones that
grow like weeds, biennials are
the ones that die this year

The victim told Drake the
men shoved him to the ground,
hit him in the head with one of
the guns, and stole $5 from his
pockets and his cellular phone.
The vehicle the victim de-
scribed was seen a short while
later at a residence on Cactus

three men with guns knocked
on his door, but he did not open
it.
The pickup truck was later
stopped by Wauchula police.
The first victim positively
identified Vasquez as the man
who robbed him. The other man
said Vasquez was one ,of the
three at his home.
Vasquez and the others were
arrested. With his sentencing,

Impact Fees Off For A Year


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
This time they delayed
impact fees for another year.
For the sixth time, impact
fees have been postponed. At its
meeting last week, the Hardee
County Commission changed
impact fees once again.
First planned for in 2005 and
put off in six-month increments,
the impact fees for all develop-
ment and implementing school
impact fees for residential
development are now delayed
until July 1, 2010. The imple-
mentation date for impact fees
for industrial and warehouse
development is extended to
Oct. 1, 2010.
Brent Driskell, president of
the Hardee County Builders
Association, thanked the com-
mission. "We appreciate it, fifty
percent of nothing is still noth-
ing," he commented.
Sporadic building is occur-
ring now, with a couple of con-
struction permits being issued
each week. Commissioners
have said they expect it to be a
long time before the economy
picks up and impact fees are
needed.
"We'll probably have to do
another study by next July to
establish the fees," said county
manager Lex Albritton, refer-
ring to the first study done near-
ly five years ago as a basis on
which to set the impact fees. He
noted also that if the county had
been collecting impact fees and
does so for seven years without
using them for infrastructure
related to development, it


would have to return the fees
collected.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
- approved a maintenance
agreement with the state
Department of Transportation
for the resurfacing project now
under way from Doc Coil Road
to Main Street in Bowling
Green. County engineer/public
works director Kevin Atchley
said that work may be affected
by a box culvert on the west
side which would have to be
revised for the repaving to con-
tinue.
- approved on a 3-2 vote
the recommendation to award a
bid for the fuel system upgrades
at public works to Adams Tank
-& Lift Inc.
It was the first time the coun-
ty used a reverse bid online auc-
tion through BidBridge for a
project. Bids which began at
nearly $80,000 were reduced to
$38,000 through the bidding
process. With additions to the
project, the final cost of
$44,401.42 was awarded.
There were lengthy objec-
tions from second bidder
Heartland Pump & Tank Co.
Owner Mark Burris withdrew
his bid, but felt the county
should have chosen his compa-
ny as it was local. He has the
current maintenance contract on
the fuel pump system and
reminded commissioners how
prompt he had been after
Hurricane Charley to restore
use of the fuel pumps within a
hour.


Letter To The Editor

Tragic Deaths Are Sad

For Family, Community


Dear Editor:
My heart goes out to the
young boy who passed away on
the evening of July 4th at
Pioneer Park. There have been
so many bizarre death incidents
beginning Jan. 1 of this year.
A lot of celebrities have


passed on starting with Jett
Travolta, son of Mr. and Mrs.
John Travolta.

I know the sad loss will influ-
ence not only his parents and
family but students, teachers
and neighbors.


Adams has locations in Au-
burndale, Fort Myers, Clear-
water, Tallahassee and Orlando.
Representative Mark Taylor
said he has 28 years experience
in the field and recommended
the Gasboy system which
Burris did not want. Taylor said
he felt he had bid a quality
package and could provide the
electronic maintenance needed.
Commissioners first thought
about rebidding it, but felt since
they could not use the auction
bid for a rebid, and everyone
knew $80,000 had been set
aside for the project, bids would
come in much higher than the
auction bid had. The majority
followed the advice of Atchley,
director of purchasing Jack
Logan and computer services
Max Baker in awarding the bid.
Commissioners Minor Bryant
and Bobby Smith opposed it.
- discussed setting a fund
balance policy and delayed a
decision until budget work-
shops start July 20.
Janice Williamson, director
of management and budget,
said there has to be a way to
plan for nonspendable monies,
restricted and unrestricted, to
carry over to the next fiscal year
and plan for unanticipated
events.
Albritton said there was a gap
between the anticipated rev-
enues and expenses and he had
not been able to provide a tenta-
tive balanced budget. "We don't
know the insurance costs, and
we haven't gotten all the antici-
pated revenue information we
need," he said.


The Bible foretells the world
will get worse as the end times
come closer. People will die of
fear and their hearts will just
stop because of circumstances
in the world that are about to
come to, pass.
Our hope for such tragedies
is that God is for us and Heaven
is awaiting us. Death is just the
beginning for us when we trust
God and what Jesus did for ds
on the cross.

M&0 ,' ,'.-3: rD.

Robert Louis Stevenson
was bedridden with consump-
tion. But his disease didn't
make him despondent.
One day he was coughing
badly. His wife said, "Do you
still believe it's a wonderful
day?"
"I do," he said, as he looked
out of the window. "I'll not
allow a row of medicine bot-
tles to block my horizon."
Unbelief puts circum-
stances between itself and the
Lord. But faith puts the Lord
between itself and circum-
stances. It turns trials into tri-
umphs.
The Psalmist said, "I lift up
my eyes to the hills - where
does my help come from? My
help comes from the Lord, the
Maker of heaven and earth."

Don't despair. It's not your fault. Neither is it the fault of your
teenager. Your darling child kIs in Ithe process of turning into a mature

Fort Green Baptist Church
has a new pastor.
Steve McGaughey and his
wife, Tara, began full-time on
May 31. They have two chil-
dren. Daughter Stephanie, 26, is
married to Jeremy Boling and
has a son, Jonah age 2. They are
attending Clear Creek Bible
College in preparation for the
ministry. Their son Alex, 21,
works and lives in Florence,,
Ky. and is single.
McGaughey graduated from
Clear Creek Bible College and
then from South Western
Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas,
in 2002. He was a part-time
pastor while attending college,
but began full-time ministry
upon graduation. He returned to
part-time ministry in 2006 in
Fort Green.
He enjoys the deep tradition
of Southern gospel music that
runs throughout the church..


Also, he has noticed a genuine
respect for God in the school
system, children and all who he
has come in contact with in
Hardee County. He said this is
very different from what he has
seen in other parts of the coun-
try.
He and his wife lived in the
country growing up in
Lawrenceburg, Ky., and living
in Fort Green is taking them
back to their roots. He said they
loved waking up in the morning
listening to birds singing, the
country hospitality and, of
course, Fort Green's good
country cooking!
McGaughey is getting orient-
ed to the community, and is
amazed that there are so many
homes on these little back
roads!
The church invites everyone
to come out and meet and hear
Brother Steve share the Gospel.

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
The circuit judge is in Wau-
chula this week hearing con-
demnation proceedings for the
right of way for a new highway
to be built between Wauchula
and Bowling Green. The pro-
posed road will follow the rail-
road north to Wauchula Hills,
then cross Payne's Creek near
the railroad crossing, going
straight into Bowling Green.
A Hardee County hopper set
a new world record. The local
bullfrog, named Woco-Pep and
owned by Jack Cliett of Wau-
chula, leaped 13 feet, seven
inches to break the 13-foot,
three-inch record set in 1932 in

50 YEARS AGO
The Hardee County Board of
County Commissioners approv-
ed Monday a 1959 tax roll total-
ing just under $20 million, near-
ly $8 million more than last
year. The biggest jump in val-
ues on the tax roll, according to
Tax Assessor Anna Mae Taylor,
was in non-exempt real estate
more than homestead or person-
al property valuations.
The Board of Public Instruc-
tion has agreed to purchase six
new buses at a total cost of
$24,096. To pay for the buses,
the board will borrow the total
amount from a bank, pay the
supplier in cash, and repay the
bank over a four- to five-year
period.
Oram Citrus Inc., a corpora-
tion of 11 retired military offi-
cers, has purchased 120 acres in
the Lily section for develop-
ment of a citrus grove. Lt. Col.
Leroy Sauls, of Bowling Green,
is the executive officer. Planting
will begin this fall.
In its Monday night meeting,
the Wauchula City Council
voted to retire $16,000 in 1942
refunding bonds. The council
also agreed to accept a bid of
$5,126.86 for the purchase of a
tractor, backhoe digger and
blade.
A Zolfo Springs Machine
Shop ad is taking orders for
cucumber pickers, which "will
save 50 percent of your picking
costs. We have several orders
for these. machines and will
reduce the cost of your machine
if we can include it in this sum-
mer's production schedule."
25 YEARS AGO
It will cost roughly $190,000
to replace the badly deteriorat-
ing roof on Wauchula Elemen-
tary School, a consultant told
the Hardee County School
Board. The cost-free prelimi-
nary evaluation requested by
Schools Superintendent John
Terrell showed the 54,000-
square-feet to be suffering from
splitting, water ponding, ex-
posed felt, raised spots, blister-
ing, a hole and worn-out flash-
ing.
Construction of the new First
Baptist Church of Wauchula is
moving right along. The pro-
jected completion date is
Thanksgiving or the first of
December, said building com-
mittee member Lawrence
Roberts. He said the costs will
probably come in within the $2
million estimate.

Hardee Memorial Hospital
realized a profit of $30,000 in
May, bringing it out of the red
to date for the year with a mar-
gin of $3,741. A donation of
$10,000 from Herb Abrams, of
New York City and owner of
Overlook Groves, helped the
May total.
Charles Shackelford Real
Estate offers a "country home
in the city," a split-level 3BR,

10 YEARS AGO.
Construction of the new 44-
foot-wide bridges over. the
Peace River east on CR 636
(East Main Street) has begun.
Completion date is early to
mid-November for this pair of
bridges and the one on SR 64 at
Charlie Creek, about 15 miles
east of Wauchula. Traffic at that
one is rerouted on a temporary
bypass at a reduced speed of 45
mph, while drivers in Wauchula
have 'to take the detour on
Griffin and Manley roads.
The Drug Task Force made a
record bust here last week when
authorities confiscated over
seven pounds of methampheta-
mine, enough to get over
12,186 people, half of Hardee
County, high.
Hardee County was one of
eight funded among 21 applica-
tions for a Primary Care Grant.
The county received $146,000
for three years for preventive
and early care services which
will, hopefully, reduce emer-
gency room use by low-income
residents. Patients may see the
provider of their choice in
receiving treatment, X-ray, lab-
oratory, pharmacy, dental and
physical therapy services.

Beattie Only


Sertoma Winner


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Although 10 Hardee golfers
braved the weather to play
Sertoma Junior Golf last week,
only William Beattie came
home a winner.'
Beattie, playing nineholes in
the rain-shortened event, over-
came his division nemesis Will
Bennett, who has dominated
this age group in recent weeks.
Beattie carded a 41, four stokes
up two of on his nearest oppo-
nent in the 13-14 age division.
Bennett did not have one of his
better days placing 5th. Trenton
Moon and Bradley Brewer were
also in the mix among the divi-
sion's 18 players, the largest
age group on the Sertoma Youth
Tour.
The tour will play at the


Hardee home course, Torrey
Oaks today (Thursday) with
tee-off time at 9 a.m. .,
In other action last week,
Wildcat.Taylor Barlow placed
second in the boys 15-16, also
limited to just nine holes
because of the weather moving
in. Hardee boys took four. of the
eight slots in that age group,
with Lincoln Saunders, Dalton
Hewett and Daniel Miller fol-
lowing on.
Grayson Lambert, the only
Hardee golfer in the 17-18 boys
group, finished in the middle of'
the pack, 5th of nine golfers,
carding a 44.
Hardee's only other golfers
last week were in the girls age
14-18 group, where Kara Norris
and Lauren Moore competed
well,.

Air Force JROTC At JROTC Cadets Go On


HHS Changes Command Aerial Refueling Mission


By ANTHONY G. SINGLE
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Cadet. Lt. Col. Bradley Ad-
cox, a graduating senior, relin-
quished command of Hardee
Senior High School's Air Force
Junior Resel-ve Officer Training
Corps Unit FL-20055 to Cadet
Maj. Crystal Hebert, a rising
12th grader, on May 27.
Changes of command are
customary in ROTC, and cadets
are competitively selected for
this esteemed position where
they directly influence the
direction of the unit while
simultaneously honing their
leadership skills.
Adcox is one of only six
cadets to complete all four
years of the Air Force Junior
ROTC program at Hardee
High. At the unit's Awards &
Recognition Ceremony held
May 15, Adcox was presented
the prestigious Veterans of
Foreign Wars national-lev,el
award for leadership, attitude
toward AFJROTC, outstanding
military bearing and conduct,
respectfulness, patriotism, and
being active in corps activities.
The award was presented by
Commander Mack Bryan of
VFW Post 10285.


Adcox graduated from
Hardee Senior High School on
May 30, and will pursue a mili-
tary career with security forces
in the U.S. Air Force. He de-
parts in September for Basic
Military Training School in San
Antonio, Texas, where he will
assume the rank of airman first
class upon graduating. He
leaves behind a legacy of integ-
rity, service, commitment and
excellence and will serve the
nation proudly.
Cadet Maj. Hebert was im-
mediately promoted to the rank
of cadet lieutenant colonel fol-
lowing the change of command.
A member of the National
Honor Society, Lionettes and
Air Force JROTC, Hebert was
competitively selected to attend
ROTC's Medical Honors Lead-
ership Camp this summer at
Oklahoma University. Only the
top one percent of the Air Force
JROTC's 107,000 cadets were
nominated to attend Honors
Camp, and less than one-half
were selected.
Hebert was recognized at the
unit's awards ceremony with
the Distinguished Air Force
JROTC Cadet Badge, an award
recognizing one outstanding


cadet who is of high rnoral
character, demonstrates positive
personal attributes, displays
outstanding military potential,
and maintains consistent acade-
mic and military excellence.
Additionally, she was the re-
cipient of The Order of Daeda-
lians national-level award, an
award organized by WWI mili-
tary pilots who sought to per-
petuate the spirit of patriotism,
love of country, and the high
ideals of self-sacrifice which
place service to the nation
above personal safety and posi-
tion.
Hebert is exceptionally quali-
fied to take the reins of the Air
Force Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps program this
coming school year, with an
enrollment that is expected to
soar past-the 100 cadet mark.
Hebert and Adcox, lifelong
friends growing up in Hardee
County, are leading a select
group of 16 cadets from
Hardee's program on a five-day
trip to Washington, D.C., this
summer, where they will tour
and explore the many treasures
and monuments in this nation's
capital before undertaking their
new challenges.


By CONNOR SHEPARD
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Several cadets from Hardee
Senior High School's Air Force
Junior Reserve Officer Training
Corps participated in an orien-
tation flight on board an Air
Force KC-135 tanker aircraft
earlier this past school year.
Of the 74 cadets in the pro-
gram, only the topl students
were selected on the basis of
overall grade, uniform wean
and participation in unit activi-
ties.
The group, accompanied by
Principal Mike Wilkinson, left
the school before 6 a.m. to ar-
rive at MacDill Air Force Base
at 8 a.m. for their pre-flight
briefing. After some basic.safe-
ty instructions, the students
were taken by bus to the flight-
line to receive final instructions
and board the aircraft. Once on
board, the students strapped
themselves in and prepared for
takeoff.
Once airborne, the flight
crew gave the all-clear for the
cadets to move about the air-
craft. The cadets had the oppor-


tunity to visit the entire aircraft,
from the cockpit to the aft stor-
age area.
The flight crew's mission that
day was to fly north to the coast
off Charleston, S.C., to provide
aerial refueling training for
three C-17 cargo aircraft crews.
No fuel was delivered from the
KC-135 tanker to the C-17
cargo aircraft, but "dry con-
tacts" were made, practicing
hooking up and staying con-
nected for the length of time it
would take to actually transfer
the fuel.
While on station, cadets were
given the opportunity to de-
scend into the boom pod to ob-
serve the boom operator make
the dry contacts with the refuel-
ing probe. This process was re-
peated numerous times as each
crew on the C-17 flew their air-
craft within feet of the tanker,
made contact, and broke away.
While on board, the cadets
enjoyed a box lunch provided
by the U.S. Air Force.
After landing, the cadets had
an opportunity to speak to the
flight crew and pose for a few


pictures in front.of the aircraft.
All the cadets were impressed
with the activity and were excit-
ed to have the opportunity to
participate. For some of the
cadets, it was their first time on
an airplane.
Those cadets who went on
the mission included Bradley
Adcox, Christopher, Anderson,
Caleb Boyette, Kayla Carroll,
Ruben DeLaCruz, Danely
Flores, Reimundo Garcia, Crys-
tal Hebert, Danson Hensley,
Daniel Hernandez, Roberto
Hernandez, Steven Locklar,
Staci Macias, Juan Rodriguez,
Connor Shepard and Alex-
andreia Yeomans.
The Hardee Senior High
School Air Force JROTC Unit
is under the direction of Lt. Col.
Anthony Hingle,. USAF (Ret.),
and Master Sgt. Veronica Scott,
USAF (Ret.). The unit teaches
young men and women disci-
pline, citizenship and aerospace
science.
Additionally, the unit pre-
sents the colors at all varsity
football games, local parades
and many civic functions.

HHS Volleyball On Summer Move


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2009 Lady Wildcats will
get an early start on the season
with some summer thrillers.
Coach K(en Leupold has put
together an AAU (Amateur
Athletic Union) series of tour-
naments as well' as practices for
girls interested in joining the
varsity or junior varsity squad
this year.
To prepare for the late
July/August specials, prospec-
tive players will need to jbin the
AAU by going on-line at aaus-
ports.org. Choose "Purchase,"
fill out the form, choosing
the$14 added membership cate-
gory. You have to, use a credit
card to pay. Print out a card and
bring it to the first practices,
says Leupold.
Hardee will need a lot of
practice to face one of the
toughest schedules in the last
nine years. Like many other
teams, Hardee has been reclas-
sified and moved down to 3A
competition. The Lady 'Cats
are in 3A-11, along with Sara-
sota Booker, Sarasota Cardinal
Mooney, DeSoto and Braden-
ton Southeast. Nearly rivals
Avon Park and Lake Placid are
in 3A-9.
Official practices start at 8
a.m. on Monday, Aug. 10 at the
high school gym. The season
starts at home on Sept. 3 with a
JV/varsity tilt against South-
east.
Before that, Leupold will
have summer practices July 27-
31 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at the
local gym. During that time
Josh Hill, assistant coach at
Florida Southern College in
Lakeland, will put on a volley-


ball camp for incoming or cur-
rent high school students. That
camp will run from 9 to noon
and I to 4 p.m. on July 30 and
31. Cost for that camp is $120.
Leupold said he needs to know
how many plan to attend and
needs, prospective players to
call him at 863-245-4174 after
10 a.m. any morning. He notes-
that students do not have to be
an AAU member to attend this
camp.
They will need to be AAU-
registered to participate in the
Summerfest AAU volleyball
tournament in Winter Haven,
which starts at 8 a.m. on
Wednesday, Aug. 5. Cost is $15
per player, which includes a T-
shirt and lunch. To prepare-for
this tournament, there will be
practices at the school gym
from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 3rd
and 4th.
Team tryouts are Aug. 10
from 8 to 10:30 a.m. and/or 5 to
7:30 p.m. Monday through.
Wednesday of that week when
teams will be chosen. Official
practices begin Aug. 13.
Before tryouts, prospective
players need a parent permis-
sion form, two physical forms
and a signed and notarized
insurance form, which all are to
be turned in to Kay Kinder in
the school activities office.
They will be available the first
week of August.
Leupold suggests players get
in shape by running, jumping
and working on footwork.The
best exercise is jumping rope,
he says. Also work on ball-han-
dling skills in especially impor-
tant for those who want to be'
setters.
He says parents will be need-
ed to help out this year as there

are plans.to try to run a conces-
sion stand during games. Some
volunteers are needed as line
judges, a bookkeeper for home
games and a clock keeper for
home games.
An enchilada dinner will be
set early in the season as an
additional fund-raiser for a new
ball machine, with funds to
match, hopefully, a grant from
the Hardee Athletic Foundation.
Leupold has great hopes for
the season and stresses that only
players who "will p t- the team
first and have a great'team atti-
tude will be needed to have a
winning season.
"We cannot have players who
do not put the team first.
Having played on the team for
two or three years' does not
guarantee anyone a place. If
younger players come with bet-
ter attitudes and equivalent
skills, I will choose the persons
with better attitudes, irregard-
less of grades," he concluded.

mail him at kleupold@hard-
ee.kl2.fl.us.


Holy Child Alone At Top


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Holy Child Catholic Church
is tops in the 2009 Women's
Church Softball League stand-
ings.
Alpha & Omega/Freedom
Ministries was involved in a
pair of key games last week.
The Thursday loss to Holy
Child, coupled with the Tues-
day win over First Methodist
Church of Wauchula, cemented
the standings.
Holy Child is still undefeated
with a 4-0 record, but is being
challenged by First Methodist,
which is at 2-1 and First
Christian Church at 3-1. San
Alfonzo's Chapel and Alpha &
Omega are both at 2-2, with
New Vision Worship Center
and New Hope Baptist round-
ing out the standings.
Last Tuesday's early game
was a 13-12 win for Alpha
& Omega, taking the measure
of First Methodist for the victo-
ry..
Leadoff batter Jodi Griffin
was the only triple-tally batter
for Alpha & Omega. Sami Jo
Morgan, Emily Ward and Penny


Strange each chipped in with a
pair of scores and Lori Dees,
Stephanie R., Joy and Kristin
each added a run.
Elene Salas, Shauntee Hines
and Jennifer Bryant each cir-
cled the bases three times for
the Methodist ladies. Aimee
Dellepere scored twice and
Meagan Smith touched home
once. Diane Brummett, Heather
Refoure, and Jo Pohl were each
stranded twice.
In the Tuesday nightcap, First
Christian cruised. past New
Vision 25-2.
Erica Deaton had four trips to
home plate for First Christian,
Brittany Hines, Jessica Hays,
Paige Massey, Tara Santoyo
and Lori Cruise each put a trio
of tallies on the board.
Kimberly Miller and Melissa
Albritton each scored twice.
Hailey and Ann Talley were
the only New Vision batters to
get all the way home. Valerie
Smith, Kim Holt, Chrystal
McDuffie, Mindy, Yameshi and
Jackie were stranded.
Both Thursday games were
close encounters. In the 6:45
game, San Alfonso's won 14-10


over New Hope.
Francisca Olvera and Gloria
Flores each crossed home plate
twice for San Alfonso's.
Melinda Silva added a pair of
runs and Maggie Olvera,
Aleeza, Rashonea Lampjey,
Dalia Flores, Rosalia and Maria
came home once each.
For New Hope, it was Regan
Davenport and Summer M.
with twin tallies. 'Jessica H.
Michelle G., Kate, Kaitlynn,
Melanie and Amanda each
chipped in with a run.
In the week's finale, the 8:15
game, Holy Child scooted past
Alpha & Omega 22-17.
Tita, Liberty Mushrush and
Jamie each came around to
cross home plate four times for
Holy Child. Susanna Castillo
was the only three-score batter.
Rosa and Zita added twin tal-
lies.
Scoring was even for Alpha
& Omega, with Morgan, Amy
Franks, Dees, Stephanie R., Joy,
Kristin and Strange each
putting'a pair of runs on the
board. Griffin, Glenda Eures
and Stephanie M. each added a
run.


There is a definite process by which one made people into friends, and it Involved talking to
them and listening to them for hours at a time.

County with a Heart

Once again, Hardee County residents have opened their hearts and poured out
an abundance of support in the quest for a cure for cancer. I was overwhelmed by the
volume of individual s choosing to adopt a duck, for a total of 14,000 adoptees racing to
the finish line.
Together you made it possible for $12,000.00 to be presented to the American
Cancer Society to keep the fight against cartcer going strong.
My very special thanks to Ken Weis and his team of Relay for Life volunteers for
all their assistance in the success of the 1st Annual Duck Race, benefiting the American
Cancer Society. Their dedication to the cause and the strong support of the sponsors
listed below are to be commended, for even as our economy has weakened, many have
shown their hearts have grown stronger!
