was all bundled up despite the
scorching heat outside.
"He just walked in casually,"
Beattie said. He headed to the

then passed a note to the teller,
threatening her and demanding
money.
Beattie said the teller picked
up the note and then put it down

"It was important for me to
be able to make this announce-
ment publicly at this month's
meeting but my travel schedule
simply will not permit it. I con-
sider it one of life's greatest
blessings to have been allowed

beside," he continues.
Lambert noted, "Please know
that the city of Wauchula is a
very special place and I will
always be willing to help in any

"I commend Commissioner
Lambert for his efforts for the
city. He will be greatly missed,"
commented Royal after reading
the resignation letter.


Broadband Coming



To Outlying Areas


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wireless networking in the
far corners of the county could
be a reality before the end of the
year.
If a pair of broadband access
applications are approved, both
middle mile and last mile wire-
less will extend anywhere in the
county, said Bill Lambert,
county director of economic
development.
Lambert and Lynn Topel,
director of Florida Heartland
Rural Economic Development
Initiative, brought their propos-
als to a special meeting of the
Hardee County Commission on
Monday.
Lambert sought the commis-
sion's approval of an applica-
tion for "last mile" access,
which would serve 100 percent

available not the current 56,000
bytes but 20 million bytes per
second with no wait, no delays
as people now experience.
It would require a portal on
the house, one smaller than a
satellite dish. A small router
(cost about $30) can penetrate
rain, cloud cover and other
obstacles. The wireless method
sidesteps. the need for substa-
tions, which are not available in
rural areas.
"This could be available
within 60 days, if we waited for
buried cable it would take
years,"' said Lambert.
He described two possible
scenarios, one the Chevrolet
approach, one the Jaguar
approach. "There's quite'a lot of

Congratulations to University of Florida head coach Urban
Meyer for signing a six-year contract to stay with the Gators. This
is for $4 million a year, making him the .highest paid SEC football
coach, just ahead of Alabama's Nick Saban at $3.9 million.
The Gators defeated Alabama last season in the SEC title
game and then Oklahoma for the national title.
Florida enters the 2009 season as the favorite to win another
national title but every team will be trying hard to knock the Gators
off their lofty perch. The Gators return all 11 starters on defense
and seven on offense. It is very hard to win the SEC title and
national championship, much less twice in a row.
In an added twist quarterback Tim Tebow and defensive leader
Brandon Spikes have said they would like to have Florida's first
ever undefeated season. Florida this fall will field their 103rd foot-
ball team.

In the meantime Bobby Bowden's Florida State Seminoles are
ranked about No. 19 in preseason polls. Bowden has won two
national titles. He is wanting FSU to win another national title
before he retires.
He trails Penn State's Joe Paternrc by a single win for most
NCAA Division I football wins ever. The NCAA,' however, is
threatening to take away. up to 14 FSU'wins for a recent cheating
scandal that involved some student athletes but no coaches.

The Hardee High Wildcat football team is in camp this week
in Wauchula to help prepare for the upcoming season. The fall
kickoff classic will be Aug. 28 at Lake Placid.
The season opener will be Sept. 4 at home against traditional
rival Fort Meade. The Miners won last year and have a new head
coach in Jamalle Cornelius. The HHS head coach for his third year
is Tim Price.

The HHS band is in need of some musical instruments and
other cash donations. A wish list is printed elsewhere in this issue.

Jim Greenwood, chief executive of an occupational health and
outpatient clinic company in Texas, recently said America has a
health crisis, not a health care crisis. He cited a high obesity rate in
America, saying that condition often leads to diabetes and heart
and kidney problems,, adding $147 billion a year to the nation's ,
health care bill.
He also cited smoking and lack of enough exercise as lifestyle
decisions that create health problems. Of the three, his top concern
is lack of.exercise. Greenwood said more Ahmericans should start
eating right and exercising. Source: Jim Landers,, Dallas Morning
News, Aug. 10 Lakeland Ledger. .

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband former
President Bill Clinton did a good job recently in getting two
American journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, released by North
Korea. Bill Clinton flew over there on a diplomatic mission to meet
with North Korea leader Kim Jong II.
The two young women had entered North Korea illegally and
been sentenced to 12 years at hard labor.

Bill O'Reilly in Sunday's Parade magazine wrote that
President Barack Obama can teach American children four impor-
tant lessons.
1.) Forgiveness. His father abandoned him at age 2. At age 10
Barack was sent back to Hawaii to live with his grandparents. His
father's absence motivated Barack to succeed.
2.) Respect. Obama does not demean his parents who put their
needs ahead of his. He understood the situation and put his ego
aside, reported a psychologist Patricia Saunders of New York City.
3.) Hardwork. Barack took English lessons in Indonesia and
wound up editing the Harvard Law Review. He 'saw the big picture
and laid a foundation for success.
4.) Anything Is Possible. Without his parents, no fatherly
advice, of mixed race, no family connections for politics, he lost an
election for Congress, later was elected to the U.S. Senate and then
president at age 48.
"If Barack Obama can become the President of the United
States, then whatever dream you may have can happen in your life.
It all depends on lessons learned," wrote O'Reilly.

the county, but it is not extend-
ed to the rural areas. The
schools probably have the best
tower technology, with a 10-
mile radius."
Lambert said that one prob-
lem with the tower accessibility
is that if something goes wrong
in one place then a whole coun-
ty or even counties could be
without computer access. This
system bypassed that problem
without requiring backup T-1
lines. "It can deliver access to
the door of folks anywhere in
the county."
Embarq, which was just
acquired by General Telephone
in a system called Century
Link, has rescinded all 25-cent
calls between local communi-
ties, such as Zolfo Springs to
Arcadia, Wauchula to Sebring
or Lake Placid, etc. For some
reason, Wauchula to Arcadia
and. Wauchula to Fort Meade is
still available, although Bowl-
ing Green to Fort Meade is not,
said Lambert, reading from a
list provided to him.
Fort Green resident Donald
Samuels asked about how
broadband would affect his air
' card. "Will I have to wire my
house to receive broadband?"
Lambert said it would be bet-
ter than an air card and would
not require any change in
wiring, just the outside router
for about $30 and probably $14
to $19 a month for the 20 giga-
byte (20 million bytes per sec-
ond) availability.
The commission approved a
letter of endorsement for the
federal application to "provide
access to both un-served and
underserved areas of our county
and sister municipalities . the
last mile broadband service to
100 percent of residents in this
rural county. It is increasingly
imperative for rural areas to
have complete, competitive and
efficient access to high speed
broadband technology."
Topel said her agency, which
covers Hardee and seven other
counties, is complementary to
the county economic develop-
ment one. The FHREDI appli-
cation will provide the middle
mile in what will make broad-
band affordable for the average
citizen, at the same level as
those in coastal counties have.
It is like the FHREDI applica-
tion is for the transmission lines
and the county application is for
the distribution lines, she
explained.'
"Hardee. County is wired
well. Emergency Management
has two T-1 lines to get the band
width they need, but one cut
anywhere in the system: can
take the entire county,. even
region out, she explained.
"There is no redundancy, or
reroute available for such prob-
lems," she said.
The FHREDI application will
create infrastructure for anchor
tenants, schools, Ilibraries, hos-
pital, airport and government
offices, subsidizing the cost so
local access is the same as a
major city. The anchor tenants
will then pass it on to citizens.
If both grants are approved,
they will help each other. They
are not competing for the same
dollars. When the application is
submitted, it will be decided in
30 days. Telephone companies
have 30 days to respond. The
dollars should be available by
December 1 for shovel-ready
work. The grant is for three
years, to be 66 percent complete
in two years.

Americans Could Be


Key To New Cures


Genetic research has helped
doctors understand the root
causes of a number of diseasesm-
knowledge that could someday
lead to countless cures.
In fact, scientists say study-
ing genetics could help with the
treatment of conditions ranging
from ALS and leukemia to
migraines and severe food aller-
gies. ..
Now,. Americans could help
guide those efforts and influ-
ence which' diseases are studied
by directly contributing to re-
search on the conditions they,.
.care -bout riost. But instead 'of
simply making a direct contri-
bution,,.people can donat,. raw

one of several diseases br'con-
ditions, including ALS, celiac
diseasey,epilepsy, lymphoma
and leukemia, migraines, multi-
ple sclerosis, psoriasis, rheuma-

saliva collection kit and pledge
to take surveys that collect data
for those studies.
For every disease or condi-
tion that reaches the minimum
number of participants required
for valid scientific analysis, the
company will conduct a re-
search program-including find-
ing the appropriate experts and
.collaborators to partner with in
order to provide research find-
ings, design a genetic research
study and continue to recruit,
participants for these additional'
studies. The disease or condi-;
tion with the most support will
be the first target for research.
By combining participants' data!
with their responses to surveys
about their health and experi-

Q: Are corn tortillas a
healthier choice than flour
tortillas?
A: Corn tortillas used to be
more nutritious than flour tor-
tillas, but that's not always true
anymore. Corn tortillas are
made of corn flour and have
always been whole grain, pro-
viding dietary fiber and a vari-
ety of nutrients and antioxidant
compounds. Tortillas referred to
as flour tortillas were usually
made of refined white flour.
Today, however, larger grocery
stores often carry flour tortillas
made completely or primarily
with whole grain flour, which
can make them a good choice,
too. Another traditional advan-
tage of corn tortillas was lower
fat content. But today, most
varieties of tortillas are free of
trans fat and low in saturated fat
- the two types of fat that are a
negative'for heart health. Corn
tortillas are generally still lower
in sodium than their flour vari-
eties. If you tend to eat out or
use convenience foods fre-
quently, and thus may already
push sodium limits, the higher
sodium content in flour tortillas
may be an issue. A corn tortilla
tends to have no more than 10
milligrams (mg) of sodium,
whereas a six-inch flour tortilla
may have about 200 mg, and
the larger sizes range from 400
to 700 mg. Finally, calorie con-
tent is a consideration, and here
the difference is not so much in
the type of tortilla as in the size.
The larger 10- or 12-inch tor-
tillas are often flour tortillas and
these giants are two to three
times the calories of a 6-inch
tortilla. Of course, when you
think of corn tortillas, if you
mean the crispy fried crispy
taco shells, the extra fat puts
those in a higher calorie league
all their own.
Q: How do you keep from


getting bored with salad? The
only things I can think of to
make salad exciting are things
that make it less healthy!
A: Variety is, important in
your salad it keeps your sal-
ads interesting and also pro-
vides a wider variety of nutri-
ents. If it's a green, leafy salad,
try different greens, such as
dark and flavorful raw spinach
or romaine lettuce, tender
Boston lettuce, medium crispy
leaf lettuce, peppery arugula
and the textured mix of spring
greens sometimes called
mesclun. Old salad standards
like tomatoes and cucumbers
are great, but so are any of
these: sweet peppers, hot pep-
pers, cauliflower, broccoli,
olives, beets, jicama and green
peas. But salads don't have to
be all vegetable. Have you tried
mixing salad greens with
orange segments, pineapple
chunks, fresh berries, pears or
peaches? And you could some-
times include dried beans (kid-
ney, black or garbanzo beans,
for example) or nuts, which are
especially delicious if you take
a couple minutes to toast them
first. Adding beans or nuts can
even turn your salad into a main
dish, as can adding leftover
cooked chicken, salmon or
shrimp. Just a small amount of
cheese can be a great addition,
too. Add more variety by exper-
imenting with dressings.
Simple and nutritious need not
be boring, such as olive oil with
lemon juice or raspberry. You
might also use Mexican salsa or
a favorite bottled dressing, but
use labels to make a good
choice and watch the amount
you use.
Q: What influences wheth-
er cervical cancer develops
after HPV infection or forma-
tion of abnormal cells?
A: We don't know for sure.

Infection with HPV (human
papilloma virus) is the cause of
almost all cancer of the cervix,
the gateway between a
woman's vagina and uterus. But
HPV infection is common, and
-usually does not lead to cancer.
In part, it depends on the type of
HPV out of more than 100
types, just 4 account for 80 per-
cent of all cervical cancer. Most
infections clear up on their own,
but repeated infections, smok-
ing or weakened immune func-
tion all seem to increase the
chances that the infection will
lead to abnormal cells.
Differences in certain genes
associated with immune func-
tion seem to make some women
more susceptible to developing
pre-cancerous lesions following
infection. If abnormal cells are
found early, they can be
removed or killed before they
turn into cancer cells. Healthy
eating habits affect both
immune function and DNA sta-
bility and repair. But so far the
evidence of protection from
healthy eating is stronger for
other cancers than for cervical
cancer.
Q: Are probiotics really
helpful in treating constipa-
tion?
A: In some people probiotics
do seem to help, especially
when constipation is part of a
condition known as Irritable
Bowel Syndrome (IBS), but
they are far from universally
effective. Evidence is growing
that probiotics live active cul-
tures of health-promoting bac-
teria may offer a variety of
health benefits. The most con-
sistent benefits suggest that pro-
biotics may help control diar-
rhea following antibiotic treat-
ment. Some studies show probi-
otics may help in dealing with
inflammatory bowel diseases,
like ulcerative colitis and
Crohn's, and play a role in
reducing risk of colon cancer.
There are many variables that
reflect on how probiotics influ-
ence a person's condition.
Different types of probiotic
bacteria clearly have different


effects. Individuals will almost
surely respond differently to the
same probiotic bacteria,
depending in part on the kinds
of bacteria already living in
their digestive tract and in their
overall diet. For example, pro-
biotic bacteria might multiply
and produce beneficial results


more quickly if there is enough
dietary fiber on which the bac-
teria can "feed." Eating a high-
fiber diet, drinking plenty of
fluids and getting regular phys-
ical activity are all factors that
may help probiotics be more
effective in overcoming consti-
pation.

Owners of the brand-new Dirt Busters Car Wash, Sherry
and Greg Martin, spend time onsite and are eager to help
customers with all their needs.
"When we got here the place was run down and most of the
equipment was falling apart. A lot of people don't realize the main-
tenance: that goes into making a car wash run right," said Greg
Martin.
In order to make the facility look spotless once again, the
Martins. had to add many new features to both the car wash equip-
ment and the overall appearance of the business.
"All the lights surrounding the car wash have brand new bulbs
so that people can wash their cars in a well-lit area at night. We
have changed the water pressure on the self-serve and automatic
car wash, as well as offering brand new soaps," Sherry Martin
noted.
"The safety is also being monitored for the customers. There
are cameras all around the lot, and the homeless residents were
receptive to us asking them to relocate," she added.
Although both owners have put a lot of time and effort into
making the car wash a safe and easy place to go, they are happy
they picked Wauchula for their business.
"This is such a nice town to start a business in, and it's a great
location that is convenient for customers," said Greg Martin.
We've all experienced frustrating times at the car wash when
a machine takes our money or the water won't turn on. To better
assist the customers' needs, the Martins are dedicating a portion of

Last week, Saunders carded
an 87, placing fourth on a match
of the cards with junior team-
mate Taylor Barlow. Soph
Daniel Miller beat them both
with an 83 and classmate,
Dalton Hewett finished the'
Hardee contingent. Sebring's
Sean Garner won that division,
matching his senior teammate
Blake Liles, who also scored 78
in the 17-18 age group.
Tour director Andy Kesling
said "it was a great day for golf
at the Lake Wales Country Club
last week. The course was in
great shape, but the scores were ,
a little higher due to the tough
test the course provided."
Adding to the thick Bermuda
grass, the temperature was in
the 90s, making it a challenge
for the 60 participating golfers
to complete the course.
In the boys 13-14, freshman
Will Bennett carded an 89, fol-
lowed by classmate William
Beattie. That duo has been
going back and forth to lead
that division all season. Trenton
Moon tied for sixth place of the
17 golfers in the largest divi-
sion.
In the boys 17-18, Hardee
senior Grayson Lambert had a:
good outing, placing sixth.

The most important trip
you may take in life is

It's down to the.final week of
Men's Community Softball
League action.
The teams were slated to fin-
ish up and have a double-elimi-
nation tournament this week,
probably on Saturday.
The only unbeaten team lost
this week, apd ironically, the
team beating it now appears to
have a lock of the Division II
title. Fuego's lost to Mosaic and
now stands at 9-1 or .900, while
Mosaic is at 11-1 or .917. Next
is Hardee Merchants at 10-3 or
.769.
Mosaic had a double-header
scheduled on Monday and
would be through with its regu-
lar season. Fuego's has three
games left, including one rain-
out. Merchants have no games
left on the schedule.
Behind Merchants in Divi-
sion II are Nemesis, the Peace

were in Collier, Glades, and Alachua counties receiving 3.11, 5.03,
and 5.70 inches respectively.
FIELD CROPS
Peanut pegging continued with 85 percent complete compared
with 98 percent last year and a five year average of 96 percent.
Peanut condition rated 1 percent poor, 15 percent fair, 66 percent
good, and 18 percent excellent. Peanuts made progress as scattered
showers continued across most of the Panhandle. Cotton fields in
Okaloosa County were treated for insects. Corn was harvested in
Hamilton County, but was delayed by rain in Escambia County.
Hay was baled in northern fields when rain could be avoided. Soil

Gadsden and Hamilton counties.
LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES
Pastures were in good condition and livestock was doing well
on the abundant pasture grass. In the Panhandle and northern areas,
pasture was fair to excellent with most in good condition. Pastures
.were holding steady and the cattle was generally in good condition.
The condition of the pasture varied in part depending on how much
fertilizer wvas applied earlier in the season. In the central areas, pas-
ture was mostly in good condition but some locations suffered from
drought while other locations had standing water due to recent
heavy rain. In the southern areas, range condition varied from poor
to excellent. Localized flooding in low lying areas affected the pas-
ture. condition. Statewide, cattle condition ranged from poor to
excellent with most in good condition.

reached the low to mid-90s in all monitored areas. The warmest
temperatures Were in Sebring at over 96 degrees, followed by Ona

TODAY'S TEENS ARE



NOT So DIFFERENT


m


By KAITLYNN BENTON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Born and raised in the oldest city in'
Florida, Velma Roark was brought into
this world on Dec. 18, 1944.
Like teens today, Velma loved to
hang out with friends and attend church.
All through high school her favorite
subject was world history. "The num-
bers and ideas from the past always
seemed to interest me," said Velma.
Mrs. Roark attended St. Augustine
High and was a member of ROTC and
her hometown cheerleading squad'. Mrs.
Roark did not attend college directly
after high school. She didn't have the
opportunity to attend until she was near-
ly 40 years old, and when she did, it
was a medical college.
For as long as Velma can remember,
she always had a routine from the time
she woke .e
up from the,. ,,c, ,. ,c-
time she IWO -^e
laid down .' \ ,
to sleep
again. On a normal day Velma would
get up and always eat breakfast first.
"We did this because coming from a
large family, my mother believed
strongly in feeding all 10 kids before
we started the day," said Mrs. Roark.
After a healthy breakfast she would
brush her teeth and finish getting ready
by choosing the outfit for the day and
fixing her hair.
After catching her bus she would
arrive at school to her friends and go
through the day switching from class to
class, trying all she could to fit in a little
social time without being late.
The work didn't stop there for young
Velma Roark. After a long day at school
she would go home and get right on her
chores, which varied from feeding the
chickens and milking cows to helping
her mom clean up around the house.
After chores were completed, Velma
would get ready to go to work.
Her first job was working at the Jr.
Shop, Which wara clothing store for
teens. Mrs. Roark was only 13 years old
when she started this job, and made
$1.50 an hour. Doesn't seem like much
these days, but then it was a fair pay,
especially for a 13-year-old- even better
than expected since gas was only 49
cents a gallon and to rent a place to stay
was nearly $40 a month.
So what would a 13-year-old girl do
with her paycheck? Well, there weren't
many fast-food restaurants. Only two
restaurants came to mind that Mrs.
Roark remembered spending a little
cash at. There was a Rusty's Drive-In
an an A&W Root Beer stand, where the
waiters came out, on roller skates.
Sound familiar? Yes, that is where the
idea for Sonic came from, and accord-

ing to Mrs. Roark the root-beer. stand
was a very cool place to hang out.
Although money was spent on food,
Velma also saved up so she could go
and be with her friends. Having the lux-
ury of living so close to the beach,
Velma and her friends loved to meet up
and just have fun in the sun. When they
weren't sitting in the sand, Velma and
her close friends were doing something
with the church that they attended. At
this age, Velma's home church was First
Assembly of God.
Coming from a large family of 10
children it wasn't often to have a vaca-
tion, but when the family did get the
opportunity to get away, they made it
worth it. The family would travel to
Georgia to see Stone Mountain and then
onward toward Tennessee to check out
the beautiful Lookout Mountain.
Vacationing was only a little part of
Mrs. Roark's memorable experiences.
She says the one thing she remembers
the most about being a teen was having
the opportunity to go to Teen Town at
the YMCA. Teen Town was an activity
that brought teens together in one loca-
tion and let them dance all night to dif-
ferent live bands. Although Teen Town
was amazing, Velma would have much
rathered they played a little Elvis
Presley than anything else.
During Mrs. Roark's teenage years
some things happened that today we
call historical events. The tow that she
can recall the best are the assassinations
of both Martin Luther King and John F.
Kennedy. Going through the pressure of
the entire U.S. population being shock
during this time taught Velma a lot on
how to handle bad situations, and how
not to cave under the anxiety of.the
world being scared to walk out the front
door and stand in their own yard.
So the years that Velma lived her
teenage life may seem like so far way,
but even she has npticed that teens
today do a lot of the same things she
did when she was,iour age- "I don't
think any of the thiifgs we did then -
would have changed if it weren't for
prices going up and a few show-off
teens trying to break every rule," pro-
claims Mrs. Roark.
So, maybe the different generations
have more in common that what we all
thought they did, or possibly no one
ever wanted to give someone so much
younger or older a chance to be a
friend?
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students aid for the enjoyment of our
readers.

Fish Busters
SBy Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


STOCKING LARGEMOUTH BASS
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission may
be close to a breakthrough with stocking bass for better fishing
opportunities.
We hear it all the time: "Bass management is easy, just stock
more fish." Truth is, it isn't that simple. FWC biologists as well as
other fishery experts have understood for years that merely stock-
ing fingerling bass rarely improves fishing.
Biologists at the FWC's Florida Bass Conservation Center in
Sumter County began pioneering research that enabled scientists to
produce larger advanced fingerling bass (four inches long).
The FBCC concentrated on specific conditions where stocking
fingerlings actually works. For example, stocking fingerling bass
into a new reservoir or community pond built for fishing, or stock-
ing them into a lake following a drought, after a fish kill, or after
completion of a habitat-restoration program can restore a popula-
tion more quickly than natural reproduction alone.
The biologists understand that bass stocking results in a more
effective management tool with a larger hatchery, so they can eat a
greater variety of prey. Being bigger also is an advantage because
fewer predators can eat them.
Sounds simple, but the problems have been significant.
First, largemouth bass are typically spawned naturally in
hatchery ponds, because they don't respond well to hormones, such
as those used to spawn striped bass. In addition, small bass are can-
nibals, and they don't like artificial foods, which are used in hatch-
eries for catfish and trout.
Therefore, bass were historically grown in fertilized outdoor
ponds with lots of zooplankton (tiny floating animals such as insect
larvae). Predators, including minnows, insects and frogs, ate the

not like to fly but said it was 2-
1/2 hours versus two days!
Scooter was looking forward to
the 55-degree temperature and
being able to leave the windows
open and just letting the breeze
blow in!
Byron and Rita Allison are
proud as peacocks. Rita finally
got to rock the new grandba-
bies. They were born Aug. 3
and each weighed five pounds
and seven ounces. They are pre-
.emies and still in the hospital.
Their names are Brooke and
Bailey. Rita requests prayer for
the 'girls even though there is
nothing wrong, just need to gain
some more weight.
Then not to be outdone, Betty
Waters has .a new great-grand-
baby, born on Aug. 1. She is
also enjoying the rocking chair.
This is Amanda's first baby, and
the young man was named


Maddox Cruz Bias. They are all
doing well.
Betty Abbott called to say
there was a gathering of the
clan last week. Six first cousins
gathered at the camp off John
Gill Road for a good time of
yearning and reminiscing and
cooking. All of the boys were
born in Fort Green, but only
two remained in this area. They
camped out nightly with a
campfire but did return to sleep
in air-conditioned comfort of
Harry Hambrick's home.
The ones attending were Pete
Albritton, brother Danny Al-
britton, Edward Alderman from
Bradenton, Cline (Punk) Al-
britton and his brother, Gene
from Bradenton, and Frankie
Albritton. They really enjoyed
the memories when one could
roam the creek banks fishing,
making bow and arrows and
hunting with slingshots. Those
days are 'gone forever but the
memories are here. to stay.
Happy birthday wishes are
extended to Ashley Abbott. I
always remember her birthday
as she and my mama shared the
same date. If my mama had
not taken her final journey at
the age of 82, she would be 94
now.
Leonard and Mary Lois
Crawley enjoyed having their
son, Todd, and five children
visit Aug. 1. Todd was mighty
brave to travel to Fort Green
with children in age from 9 to 9
months! His wife flew to Mary-
land with her sister and mother
to visit her 95-year-old grand-
mother, who is in a nursing
home.
Todd said there-was room to
roam in Fort Green and the chil-
dren really had a fun time riding
Gators, four-wheelers, etc. All
boys and girls love to pick up
rocks and toss them into the
creek, and Todd's son was no
exception. Mary Lois strolled
the baby girls in the stroller
down to daughter Michele's
home.
This was the first time Todd
had been up and thought every-
thing was really pretty. Mary
Lois said it was a fun weekend
but she was ready for bed when
it was over! Children are tiring
when you are not used to them
and the babies are just starting
to crawl!
Remember to pray for our
country and one another.


For the week ended Aug. 6, 2009

At the Florida Livestock Auctions, receipts totaled 8,957,
compared to 9,680 last week, and 7,854 a year ago. According to
the Florida Federal-State Livestock Market News Service:
Compared to last week: Slaughter cows and bulls were mostly
steady, feeder steers and heifers were unevenly steady.

eggs and baby fish. As the survivors grew larger, other predators
such as birds began feasting on the young bass where they concen-
trated in outdoor ponds.
Consequently, the FBCC was designed to intensively culture
largemouth bass indoors, using state-of-the-art technology. The
FBCC has the potential to, produce more than one million advanced
fingerling largemouths annually.
Through research, scientists found a way to trick bass fry into
eating artificial food. It was" discovered that by crowding fry
together and feeding them live brine shrimp (the size of a gnat),
they'd go into a feeding frenzy and be less choosy in what they ate.
That allowed researchers to mix in artificial food that was
about the size and c6lor of the brine shrimp. Once the bass fry
began eating the artificial food, it was easier to progressively train
them to,take bigger pellets as the bass grew in size.
'Other research has improved culture conditions, fish health
management, handling and hauling protocols. Now scientists are
comparing survival rates between hatchery fish that are simply
stocked at a boat ramp in the traditional manner, versus those dis-
tributed into vegetated habitats around the lake, so they are more
dispersed and avoid predators more easily.
One study found that advanced fingerling largemouth reared in
ponds on live aquatic organisms and stocked into Lake Talquin,
near Tallahassee, fed on fishes more successfully and grew faster
than their wild counterparts during their first year of life in the
reservoir.
At the end of the first year, hatchery fish comprised 40 percent
of the bass that survived from that year's spawn during a year when
25 fish were stocked per acre. Five years after supplemental bass
stocking, hatchery fish accounted for 20-27 percent of bass caught
in tournaments.
Research is being conducted in Lake Talquin to determine
whether pellet-reared hatchery bass will survive as well as hatch-
ery fish reared on live feed.
The Lake Talquin study has provided optimism that stocking
advanced sizes of largemouth bass at the appropriate time will
become a more widespread and successful management tool.
Information gained from research and adaptive management is
critical to long-term success of bass stock-enhancement programs.
Specific spawning strategies are being used to protect the genetic
integrity of Florida bass populations in the state.
To be completely successful, the FWC is dedicated to main-
taining healthy habitats to stock the fish, as well as making sure
anglers follow the necessary rules to ensure safe, sustainable, qual-
ity recreational fishing for everyone.

Tips For
A Rosy Oasis
It can be easier than many
realize to make your garden an
inviting retreat for family and
friends. There are few more
rewarding plants than roses.
These tips can help to turn your
garden into a flowery oasis:
A sweet spot. Roses like
six or more hours of sunshine a
day and they need air to circu-
late around them to keep dis-
ease at bay. So find a sunny spot
that's not too crowded.
Stay hydrated. A new plant
needs plenty of water to get sit-
uated in its new home. Give the
plant a good soaking once or
twice a week, depending on
how hot it is.
The right rose. The All-
America Rose Selections
(AARS) awards its annual red
rose logo only to new roses that
pass years of testing in all cli-
mates. Get the ones most suited
to your soil and you can enjoy a
proven performer year after
year.
For rose care tips and to find
a nearby garden center, visit

As the purse is emptied,
the heart is filled.

Florida Hospital Heartland Opens

New Heart And Vascular Center


By JIM KELLY
Of The Heiakld-Advocate
Florida Hospital Heartland in
Sebring boeld a cardiology press
conference on July 24 to ex-
plain the new heart and vascular
center that can treat people with
heart emergencies. Blockages
can be opened in arteries and
stents installed. People needing
bypass surgery are referred
elsewhere.
Dr. Roger Wittum is the inter-
vention cardiologist. Highlands
County Emergency Services
Medical Director Dr. Donald
Geldart was very proud of the
new service. Tim Cook, presi-
dent and CEO of Florida
Hospital Heartland Division,
read a thank-you letter from a
recent patient.
A patient, Jon Geitner of
Lake Placid, then gave a testi-
monial of his recent experience.
He is senior vice president/Big
Lake regional manager/Sun-
coast National Bank.
Geitner, 56, said he used to
drink coffee for breakfast, eai
M&M candies for lunch and
"eat like a pig" at night.
About a year ago he noticed
some tingling in his legs.
Recently while mowing he
noticed a pressure in his chest.
Stress tests showed an irregu-
larity.
He would up getting two


stents. ie has a wife and two
children.
"The doctors .and staff were
incredible. I was blown away
by the whole experience. I have
been given a second chance. I
will not waste it. It meant a lot
to me that the hospital is a faith-
based institution."
Geitner added, "Diet and lack
of exercise brought this on." He
mentioned he used to eat a lot
of white flour, starches and sug-
ars. "Now I eat three square
meals a day and a snack in be-
tween. I now have stopped sug-
ar. For breakfast I eat oatmeal
with cinnamon and raisins. I eat
sweet potatoes instead of white
potatoes. Once a week you can
fall off your diet."
He exercises 30 to 45 minutes
at least three times a week. "I
have lost 15 pounds and sleep
good. I have more energy. I am.
6-3 and now weigh 210
pounds."
Geitner said he used to suffer
from acid indigestion and
reflux. His wife Susan and son
Zach, 8, were at the news con-
ference.
Dr. Wittum and Dr. Geldart
stated the importance of quick
treatment when a blood vessel
becomes blocked. They said
"time is muscle." The longer
the heart muscle is deprived of
oxygenated blood the more


chance of tissue death. Ideally
treatment to open the blocked
artery should begin within a
hour, at least within 90.minutes.
There are drugs,that can help
thin the blood and help open up
a blockage.
Angioplasty can be used to
open a blocked artery by inflat-
ing a'balloon, and a metal mesh
tube called a stent can be insert-
ed.
Dr. Wittum said the heart is
an amazing organ and that heart
attacks are the No. I killer,
claiming over 500,000 Ameri-
cans a year. He said treatment
with drugs during a heart attack
has a 65 percent success rate.
Angioplasty produces a 98 per-
cent success rate, he said.
The cath lab at the hospital
was completed in December
2008. Cardiac interventions
began in March 2009. O'ver 50
angioplasties have been done to
date. Angioplasty is often need-
ed when an artery is more than
75 percent clogged by plaque.
Dr. Geldart said lifestyle
causes a lot of heart trouble and
emphasized quick treatment
when a heart attack begins. The
more time that elapses, the
more heart muscle is damaged.
The doctors said an excellent
emergency and nursing staff has
been developed and trained to
help treat heart patients.

Hospital Gets Federal $$$


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A long-awaited federal grant
will go toward the purchase of
hospital diagnostic equipment.
U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan
announced Friday that Florida
Hospital-Wauchula is being
awarded a $94,050 grant from
the U.S. Department of Health
and Services.
"As a rural community, with
limited medical resources,
Hardee County relies on Florida
Hospital-Wauchula to provide
high quality health care," said
Buchanan. "This initiative will
improve access to emergency
care in this medically needy
area."
Adventist Hospitals reopened
the local hospital in 1995 and
has been continually upgrading
services there. Wauchula is only
one of 11 rural Critical Access
hospitals in the staie, a federal
designation that allows it to
receive a higher rate of
Medicare/Medicaid reimburse-
ment.
It has consistently been rated
high by the Joint Commission
on Survey Accreditation.-
The federal grantwill be used
to supplement hospital funding
for the $500,000 Toshiba 16-
slice CT scanner, which ser-


vices the emergency room 24
hours a day, seven days a week,
as well as inpatient and outpa-
tient schedules. The scanned
allows Hardee County residents
to have body scans of all types
without having to go out of
town for them.
"Florida Hospital-Wauchula
is extremely pleased to be able
to provide updated and en-
hanced emergency services for
our community, said Linda
Adler, hospital administrator.
"We could not do so without
our partnerships with citizens
and businesses as well as Rep.
Buchanan's assistance. The
funds received from this alloca-
tion will be felt for years to.
come as we continue to save
lives and improve health care in
Hardee County."
Purchase of the scanner is
one of the last pieces in
upgrades in emergency room
care at the local facility. A $1
million renovation increased a
seven-bed emergency unit to 14
beds, with a separate waiting
room for triage (prioritizing the
order of care by severity of ill-
ness-a heart attack takes prece-
dence over a broken bone).
There is a central nurses sta-
tion, and a separate waiting
room for families of emergency


room patients, including TV
and a children's section. The
hospital also upgraded the
chemistry lab and bought new
patient beds. A $20,000 check
from Peace River Electric
Cooperative Inc.'s "round-up"
billing program enabled the
hospital to get three cardiac
monitors.
An average of 12,000
patients are seen in the emer-
gency room a year. Besides the
emergency room staffing
around the clock, the hospital is
one of the few with a hospitalist
program. That is an on-site
physician continuously there to
provide continuity of care in
conjunction with the patient's
own physician. The hospitalist
oversees the average 23.5
patients in the 25-bed hospital.
Patients are either in the med-
ical units or transitional care,
including post-acute rehabilita-
tion for therapy after a stroke,-
heart .attack or surgery, such as
a knee or hip replacement.
The hospital has over 120
staff members to provide the
on-going and emergency care
for Hardee County residents or
transients, such as someone
passing through who is in an
auto accident or becomes ill.

Bowling Green's Legendary City Manager

Fund-Raiser Will Be Held Saturday For David Elbertson


By YVONNE KIMBALL
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Former Bowling, Green city
manager David Elbertson, after
serving the municipality in dif-
ferent roles for more than 30
years, has decided to leave the
city completely in order to bet-
ter focus on his health and other
life choices.
Elbertson, severely injured in
a car crash three years ago, is in
need of more medical treat-
ments. There will be a barbe-
cue-dinner fund-raiser this
Saturday starting at noon at the
Wauchula Moose Club, 117
King Road, just off East Main
Street. The Bowling Green
community asks for countywide
support of this man who served
the city so well.
Elbertson began his tenure
working as a front-line employ-
ee in the city's Public Works
Department. He then became a


utility plant operator. After he
obtained his credentials in both
water and wastewater treatment
plant operations, he became
public works director.
In 1999, he was offered the
job of city manager.
Elbertson miraculously sur-
vived a major auto accident in
2006, but it left him with subse-
quent injuries. Unfortunately
the condition made it impossi-
ble for him to continue per-
forming the full spectrum of
duties required of a city manag-
er. In 2008, when the City
Commission selected a new city
manager, Elbertson graciously
agreed to stay on part-time to
--ease the transition.
Elbertson was a dedicated
and versatile city manager, the
foremost in hands-on manage-
ment.
Apart from the average man-
ager's stereotype, Elbertson


knows the ins and outs of city
services by being able to do
them all from the ground level.
It was no surprise to see him go
down manholes or ditches to fix
problems; neither was it rare to
see him at emergency sites after
hours when most of his peers
would be kicking back and
enjoying pastime activities.
His practical knowledge,
coupled with his personal dedi-
cation to the citizens of the
community, enabled Elbertson
to accomplish a great deal for
the city of Bowling.Green.
He was able to turn the city's
fiscal crisis around 10 years
ago. At that time, the city liter-
ally hit bottom financially; nev-
ertheless, along with the man-
agement team, Elbertson led the
municipality out of the predica-
ment through prudent and cre-
ative practices in finance man-
agement.


He left the city in a sound
financial condition.
Elbertson's devotion to the
citizens was again evident when
he spent many sleepless days
and nights, at City Hall and the
water treatment plants after the
devastating hurricanes in 2004.
Putting his own family's recov-
ery efforts on hold, he chose to
stay at the job sites to attend to
the thousands of citizens who
lost the basic necessities such as
power, shelter from the ele-
ments, water and food.
During his tenure as city
manager, Elbertson expanded
the city's water distribution sys-
tem and maintained its infra-
structure. He successfully pro-
vided the services that the City
Commission directed.
In addition, Elberston
brought in hundreds of thou-
sands of grant dollars to im-
prove the city's recreation facil-


ities and its water treatment
plants.
As a manager, he shaped a
staff team with loyalty and
inspired them to achieve their
best.
Through his ability and com-
mitment, Elberston has indeed
earned the respect of the City
Commission, the staff and the
citizens.
He left his post of serving the
city, but his accomplishments
will remain. Through the foun-
dation he set up in the city and
his congenial assistance over
the transition period of the past,
year, the city continues to be in
good hands.
Elberston will be missed by
all.
Yvonne Kimball was hired by
the city of Bowling Green to
take over for David Elbertson.
She currently serves as city
manager

"' SEEDS
/ FROM
STHE

1 SOWER



While guiding a tour
through the Holy Land, we
stopped at a restaurant for cof-
fee. The tourist paid a dollar
for the coffee, and when the
waiter brought the cup it was
only half full.
"Fill it up!" he barked.
When it came to his coffee,
he insisted on a full cup. But
when it came to his
Christianity, he was indulging
in a half-filled life.
This 'isn't optional, it's
obligatory.
When the cup was filled
with coffee, the coffee pos-
sessed the cup. And when
you're filled with the Spirit,
the Spirit possesses your life.
It's one thing to be indwelt,
but it's another thing to be
infilled.
Are you filled with the
Spirit?

Rise & Shine
By Ted Simonson

JOINING UP
We are always surprised and pleased when a young man from
our town comes back from Army boot camp.
He has a severe haircut and a uniform that is spotless. The boy
we knew as a slouch now stands erect and tall. He has purpose and
pride.
The difference in his outward appearance sends a message that
he is different inside. He has a new allegiance. He is in someone
else's service, and ready to put his life on the line.
He is no longer a free agent doing what he likes. He belongs
to a power organization with thousands of members sworn to pro-
tect the interests of the United states worldwide.
There are a lot of parallels between this new soldier and the
person who becomes a Christian. The new recruit in Christ's army
has made an even greater commitment than G.I. Joe.
Although he may not wear a uniform, his change inside is even
more miraculous because it is based less on his performance than
on a mighty work done for him and all men on the cross.
"Boot camp" becomes a way of life. Bible study, prayer and
church work deprogram him from the ways of the world he knew
in the past.
His own flesh will put up a fight, and he will discover he must
conquer himself before he can help others.
But he will also find that in the Savior's service, there is such
joy that all the pleasures of the world fail in comparison.

Teresa Lynn "Teri" Painter of

Jim Barncord of rural Wauchula found Blackie in his back
yard seven years ago, and that's where he has been ever
since. Blackie, a Lab and Chow mix, was shot in the hip,
and Barncord nursed him back to health. Barncord and
Blackie travel around collecting donations for the
Scottish Rite Masons Foundation, which helps children
with language and learning disabilities. Blackie plays a
role in Barncord's clown act, and has even learned a few
tricks. He can salute the flag, fold his paws for prayer
time, and is even faithful to Mrs. Bancord by covering his
eyes when pretty ladies walk by. You can see Barncord
and Blackie every year at the Hardee County Fair in their
booth across from the Cowbelles Kitchen. His clown
name is Jimmy Hayseed.

TURKEY TALK


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
District supervisor Tom Selander and training and recruiting coordinator Diane
Schmelz spoke July 30 to the Wauchula Lions Club about the Guardian Ad Litem pro-
gram. The program is seeking volunteers who will look out for the best interests of chil-
dren ages newborn to 19 who are in the court system. Hardee County has seven vol-
unteers representing 51 court cases. Schmelz said 15 to 20 more Hardee volunteers
are needed by the end of the year. There are a total of 400 volunteers helping about
2,000 children in the 10th Judicial Circuit, which includes Hardee, Polk and Highlands.
The Guardian Ad Litem office in the Hardee County Courthouse is open Monday
through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until noon. The phone number is 773-2505. Pictured
(from left) are volunteer Brook Larrison, Schmelz and Selander.


ER REPORT


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
Steve Lawrence, regional biologist for the National Wild Turkey Federation, .spoke to
the Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday of last week at the Panda Restaurant. Habitat
improvement, hunting laws, and relocating wild birds to new areas have increased the
nation's wild turkey population from 1.3 million in 1973 to over 6.3 million today, he
said. Florida has about 125,000 Osceola wild turkeys, and about 20,000 Eastern wild
turkeys in the northern part of the state. His daughter, Mary, 8, killed her first deer at
age 6, her first hog at age 7, and her first wild turkey at age 8. Turkeys need food, water
and suitable habitat. He is available to help landowners for management tips by calling
(941) 661-7201. Pictured (from left) are Ken Evers, Lawrence, and George Wadsworth
Jr., banquet chairman for the Hardee County Suncoast Spurs. The banquet will be Jan.
30 at the Army National Guard Armory.

Catherine Exendine, nurse manager of the Florida Hospital Wauchula emergency
room, spoke to the Hardee Rotary Club on Wednesday of last week at the Java Cafe in
Wauchula. The ER has 14 beds and recently underwent a $1 million expansion and ren-
ovation. There is a new $500,000 CT scanner and an upgraded X-ray department and
chemistry lab. The local ER has 11,000 to 12,000 visits annually. A heart and vascular
center was recently opened at Florida Hospital Heartland in Sebring. Shown (from left)

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
A total of $952.42 was col-
lected during the Fourth of July
celebration in Wauchula. The
Chamber of Commerce spent
$917.71 and has a balance of
$34.71. The report was made by
W.F. Healey, secretary-treasurer
of the celebration.
The general millage levy in
Hardee County for 1934-35 will
be 50 mills, the same as last
year, it was decided at a lengthy
meeting of the Board of County
Commissioners last week.
Bonds and interest funds will
get the biggest share of the
$180,000 budget.
"The biggest activity in
building since the Boom," is the
way most people express the.
tremendous activity in Wau-
chula. The new Palace Theatre,
at a cost of $10,000, is nearing
completion. The new Sinclair
Filling Station, at Sixth and
Palmetto, is another $10,000
project near completion. A new
floor has been put in Mrs. M.
Weiner's department store and
the front of Groff's Men's Store
and the Central Pharmacy have
been painted.
J.W. Earnest & Co. offers
Foot Fashions with beauty,
comfort and prices that are
thrifty, for just $5.57 a pair.
West Coast Army Stores on
Wett Main Street.has men's cot-
ton flannel sports pants for
$1.49, broadcloth pajamas for
88 cents and athletic shirts for
12 and one-half cents.

50 YEARS AGO
Wauchula voters, by a margin
of 37 votes, have rejected the
proposed annexation of River-
view Heights subdivision and
its 55 connecting areas between
the city and the new develop-


ment. Balloting was heavy, with
250 for and 287 against the ref-
erendum.
There is no new jail in
Hardee County's future. Lee
Hanchey, chairman, of the
Board of County Commission-
ers, told Sheriff Odell Carlton
flatly that the board will take no
action on the proposed jail con-
struction or a county stockade.
Aug. 29 is going to be a red-
letter day for Hardee County's
young fishermen (and gals).
That's the date for the Elks
Fishathon for boys and girls
between 6 and 13. It will be at
Rock Lake from 3 to 5 p.m.
Youngsters will be picked up at
the courthouse at 2 p.m. and
returned by 6 p.m.
Roger's Market, on North
Florida Avenue. has good week-
end buys: bacon 33 cents a
pound; sirloin steak 65 and T-
Bone steak 69 cents a pound;
four pounds of bananas for 25
cents; oleo two pounds for 29
cents; and a dozen eggs for 49
cents.
25 YEARS AGO
A combined effort of three
organizations will provide
Hardee County with one big
fish fry and political rally to
help bring a National Guard
Armory to the county. Spon-
sored by the Chamber of Com-
merce and Fair Association, the
fish fry will be held in the
Rodeo Arena on Aug. 23 from 5
to 7 p.m. Dinners are $2. The
political rally will be held in the
Agri-Civic Center beginning at
7:30.

Last Wednesday night mem-
bers of First Baptist Church of
Wauchula voted to sell their
property in downtown Wau-
chula to the local chapter of the
American Legion for $150,000,
with the stipulation that the
parking lot south of the sanctu-
ary be dedicated to the city for
free parking. The American
Legion plans to erect a war


memorial honoring llardee
County veterans on the parking
lot north of the church.
Members hope to build a
Legion home where the two-
story house is at the corner of
Seventh Avenue and Palmetto
Street.
The Zolfo Springs Council on
a unanimous vote Monday sold
a triangle-shaped parcel of land
to Councilman Roy Carranco
for $2,500. The council had
advertised for bids for the small
parcel adjacent to Carranco's
business at U.S. 17 about 18
months ago. Carranco was not a
member of the council at that
time. At that time the lone bid
was tabled for evaluation.

Scotty's Red Hot Sale offers
prizes, including a 183 VBR
family boat, a Odyssey 170
family boat and a case of out-
board motor oil. Organic peat or
top soil is 97 cents for a 25-
pound bag. A gas grill is
$119.95, Bellaire ceiling fans
for $29.95 and latex paint,
white for $4.49 and colors
$4.99 a gallon.

10, YEARS AGO
Armed robbers have struck
two local businesses in the last
week. Customers and employ-
ees were ordered to the floor
Sunday night as masked rob-
bers hit the Winn-Dixie Market-
place. Armed robbers also
forced their way into the
Wauchula McDonald's restau-
rant before opening on
Wednesday.
.In the third week of school,
Wauchula continues to plan for
the increased number of chil-
dren walking to school because
of the reduction in courtesy
school bus transportation. Now
there are crossing guards at
three stations along Florida
Avenue, and traffic zones have
been marked and additional
sidewalks are being poured.
Presentations were made
recently at two public hearings
on phosphate mining. One was
before the Hardee County
Commission on Aug. 12 and the
other at the Natioanl Guard
Armory on Aug. 13. In both,
Selwyn Presnell, specialist on
reclamation, permitting and
geo-technlt*al information for
IMC-Agrico, spoke about the
need for phosphorous, an ingre-
dient in fertilizer.

Davis & Roberts has a 3BR,
IBA concrete-block home in
Bowling Green for $40,000 and
3 BR, IBA Wframe home with
stove and refrigerator for
$42,500. Joe L. Davis has a
commercial building on a cor-
ner lot in Wauchula for $85,000
and a 2BR, 2BA CB home with
majestic trees and large back
yard in Sebring for $59,500.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"Each homeowner deserves
to have a neighbor that keeps
his property nice."
A Wauchula resident patient-
ly waited through the agenda to
the "Business From the
Audience," section of Monday
night's commission meeting to
speak her piece.
She presented a list of over
40 properties within the city
limits which had code viola-
tions. "You've made the high-
way and downtown look pretty.
'It's classy, but the conditions on
side streets is bad. Some of it is
real bad, boarded windows,
used appliances, grass growing
through boats, untagged auto,
one place had cans stacked
around that would fill this room
three times," she said.
She and a friend toured all
four quandrants of the city
recently and made a list of the

problems. "During these eco-
nomic times, it may be hard to.
keep up the place, but most of
these are just cleaning up an
eyesore. Itwouldn't take any
expense,"
She was told that the list
would be turned over to code
enforcement to begin to cite
people. "We got slack after the
hurricanes, but it's time to go
full speed ahead," said Mayor
David Royal.
The 39-year resident of the
city suggested a yard mainte-
nance award for those that do
clean up their properties, espe-
cially those that make the most
difference.
In a related matter, city attor-
ney Cliff Ables reported the
property at 513 N. Eighth
Avenue, which was awarded for
code enforcement liens, will be
up for a clerk's sale on Aug.
19. The commission decided, it
needed to realize at least the
city's costs for cleanup and
code enforcement efforts. The
city could be one of the bidders
and decide to purchase, clean
up and sell the property.

In other action, the commis-
sion:
approved a resolution
accepting a $16,629 special
Byrne grant funded by the
American Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act (stimulus dollars)
for assistance to rural law
enforcement to combat crime
and drugs., Chief William
Beattie said it would be used for
four patrol car video recorders.

sat as a Community Re-
development Agency board
and, after long discussion, ap-
proved a contract of $200,000
with Kimley-Horn for develop-
ing a master plan for city prop-
erties.
Newman said since 1997,
CRA has done various random
projects as they come up. "It is
better to set goals to complete
before the CRA sunsets in 30
years; how can we best impact
the city and Hardee County"
she said.
As part of the master plan,
there will be three group meet-
ings with townspeople and
property owners on what they:
see as the most important up-
grades in the city, two half-day
workshops with commissioners
and reduced staff meetings.
Newman said projections are
that Main Street will only lose
about $10,000 due to tax rev-
enue declines. (CRA is funded
through a portion of taxes).


CONVERSATIONS WITH KIDS
If you want to help children develop language and speech
skills, listening to what they have to say is just as important as talk-
ing to them.
The effect of a conversation between a child and an adult is
about six times as great as the effect of adult speech alone. Adults
talking to children does help language develop, but what matters
even more is the interaction.
When the child speaks, it reinforces his knowledge and it lets
the parent have a better idea about where the child is with his per-
ception. The child can make a mistake and the parent can help him
correct it.
Don't leave this vital interaction to teachers and our schools.
Children need good conversations at home.
Families are urged to have conversations with children. It
helps them practice communication and gives them new words and
ideas. Give the child the opportunity to talk, preferably in a quiet
environment at at least some of the time, like bath time or at the din-
ner table.
Sometimes it's quicker and easier just to tell children what to
do, and itvis difficult to slow down, but that is what's important for
language development. This development leads to better ideas,
concepts and learning skills, and relationships.
Carve out the time for two-way communication with your chil-
dren. It can be very enlightening, entertaining, and it is well worth
the effort for you and for them.

7 RULES FROM GOD
We usually rebel against rules, and with good reason. We've
had enough of them.
But I have a feeling you'll really enjoy these. There are only
seven of them, and all make use of the word "up" a word that fits
right. in with everything about The Christophers. They're titled
"Rules From God," and they were forwarded to me by a long-ago
classmate, one who manages to be upbeat and thankful to God for
everything in her life.
The rules:
1.) Wake Up! Decide to have a good day. "This is the day that
the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it," Psalm 118:24.-
2.) Dress Up! The best way to dress up is to put on a smile.
A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks. "The Lord
does not see as mortals see; they look on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks on the heart," 1 Samuel 16:7.
3.) Shut Up! Say nice things and learn to listen. God gave us
two ears and one mouth, so He must have meant for us to do twice
as much listening as talking. "Those who guard their mouths pre-
serve their lives; those who open wide their lips come to ruin,"
Proverbs 13:3.
4.) Stand Up! For what you believe in. Stand for something
or you'll fall for anything. "So let us not grow weary . for we will
reap at harvest time, if we do not give up. So then, whenever we
have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all," Galatians 6:9-
10. *
5.) Look Up! To the Lord. "I can do all things through Him
who strengthens me," Philippians 4:13.
6.) Reach Up! For something higher. "Trust in the Lord with
all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your
ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your path,"
Proverbs 3:5-6.
7.) Lift Up! Your prayers. "Do not worry about anything, but
in everything by prayer .. let your requests be made known to
God," Philippians 4: 6.
Following the rules will bless us . God's rules, that is.

1,200 Hear Anne Graham Lotz




In Wauchula On Saturday Night


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
About 1,200 people Saturday
night came to hear Anne
Graham Lotz present a Bible
message at First Baptist Church
of Wauchula. About 700 attend-
ed the Sunday morning service.
The title of the weekend
event was "Fan The Flame -
Anne Graham Lotz in the
Heartland." She is the daughter
of Evangelist Billy Graham.
Fernando Ortega was wor-
ship leader Saturday night.. The
event chairman was Ken
Lambert. The speaker's hus-
band Danny Lotz led the
Sunday morning Bible school.
Anne Graham Lotz compared
herself to a waitress who was
serving spiritual food from the
Bible.
On Saturday night she said
America has had several alarm
messages such as the 9-11-01


terrorist attacks, Hurricane
Katrina that pounded New
Orleans and the recent econom-
ic meltdown. She said America
should not sleep through the
alarms.
She also said sometimes
"ugly brown packages" can
have something valuable inside,
referring to a ring that was in
the wrapping paper she once
received. She had initially
thrown it in the trash.
People can have ugly brown
packages in their lives such as
divorce, illness, a lost job, eco-
nomic hardship or a death of a
loved one. She said people can
often get a treasure for going
through tough times by remem-
bering God is with them.
"What are you doing that will
last beyond your life'?"
She said, "We can fall back in
confidence that Jesus is in
charge. He is seated on the

throne. He is in the highest
position ot authority in the un'i-
verse. We should praise Jesus
for who He is."
Mrs. Lotz said "sin can ruin
our lives. The wages of sin is
death. Sin is in the camp, buried
down deep. That is why the
church in America is not more
effective. We need to confess
our sins, bring them to the cross
and repent and ask God for for-
giveness."
She said the world today
sometimes uses labels for sin.,
such as calling fornication "safe
sex," calling drunkenness and
drug abuse "addiction," and
saying homosexual behavior is
a gay lifestyle."
She said several years ago
while reading a book and going
over a list of sins as directed
three times, she realized there
was sin buried deep inside her.
She went through a painful
peeling back of layers of her
life like an onion, confessing
her hidden sins asking forgive-
ness and drawing closer to God.
On Sunday morning at 9:15
Danny Lotz, a retired dentist
and suffering from diabetes,
said he and his wife have three
children. He played basketball
at University of North Carolina
(UNC), helping lead his team to
the NCAA title in 1957.
Lotz said people should not
try to fight heir -battles alone.
"God sai'dcto trust'ne."
He said Moses led two mil-
lion people out of Egypt and
they stayed in the wilderness
for 40 years, with only. two,
Joshua and Caleb, ever reach-
ing the Promised Land.
Lotz' father was a street
preacher in New York City until
the age of 85. He often spoke at
the Bowery Mission on 42nd
Street. 'His father gave up a
good job at age 42 to enter the
seminary. Danny and his broth-
ers all got scholarships and
earned doctorate degrees. One
brother, the late John Lotz, was
a head basketball coach at the
University of Florida and later
athletic director at UNC.
Lotz gave the Biblical advice
to seek first the kingdom of
God and His righteousness and
all these things will be added
unto you. Seek the Lord first.
God will never leave or forsake
you.

Rev. Ken Smith interviews Anne Graham Lotz on Saturday night.


He said God has a plan for
everyone. He said the Bible
passage in Revelations 3:9
changed his wife's life. "God
calls each of us to do his work.
Do we have spiritual ears?"
Lotz said when he was enter-
ing college his parents put a
Bible message on the dormitory
wall for him: trust in God with
your whole heart, do no lean to
your own understanding, ack-
nowledge God in all your ways
and God will direct your paths.
He quoted several other Bible
passages, including drawing
near to God and He will draw
near to you. Lotz, who teaches
Bible classes in Raleigh, N.C.,
said he became, a Christian at
age 5.
Lotz said Christians should
give out all their good seeds
before they die and feed God's
sheep. "God has a purpose for
every one of us."
On Sunday morning Anne
Graham Lotz said her father has
poor eyesight and hearing,
misses his wife Ruth greatly
and still prays a lot. His failing
eyesight does not allow him to
read the Bible. Ruth Graham
passed away June 14, 2007.
She gave an illustration of a
father who saved his money to
buy his young son a ticket to the
circus. The son saw the parade
on Main Street but did not
know to go to the big tent at the
edge of town to see the real cir-
cus. She said it is a shame for
many Christians to see the
parade but never the circus.
Two key points in her Sunday
talk were developing a deep
relationship with God and find-
ing and fulfilling your life's
purpose.


The relationship should be
personal, purposeful, perrfa-
nent and privileged. "Jesus is
the way to Heaven. God and
Jesus are glorified at the cross.
God does not have grandchil-
dren. This is a personal deci-
sion. We have to send an RSVP
to God' invitation. We need to
know God be4r 'each' -day.
Jesus brought' glory~ to his
Father."
She said a person's life
should bring glory to God. It is
a journey to know God better.
Life needs meaning. "We need


to fulfill our eternal purpose."
Life is not about money, the lat-
est pickup truck, health or pros-
perity, but reaching the full
potential, she said.
"Read the Bible, pray often.
God loves you. Get off of Main
Street and into the tent. Get a
personal relationship with God.
'Get-eternal life by accepting
Jesus as your savior. Jesus lives
inside of you by the presence of
the Holy Spirit.
"Live one day at a time, one
step at a time accomplish your
purpose."


Dr. Danny Lotz, husband of Anne Graham Lotz, gave the
Sunday School message.

operations of the Hardee Complex II, South Pasture Mine.

Mine process generated wastewater and stormwater runoff from phosphate mining

and Doe Branch respectively, which then flow to Payne Creek and ultimately into the
Peace River.

The facility is located at 2220 Mine View Road, Bowling Green, in Hardee County,
Florida and geographically at:


Latitude: 270 35' 00" N


Longitude: 81* 55' 20" W


The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at
the State of Florida, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and
Minerals Regulation, Phosphate Management Program, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway,
Temple Terrace, Florida 33637-0926. Phone (813) 632-7600, extension 138 or 158 for an
appointment.

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, within fourteen 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 must contain 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
enlargement of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request
must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the
time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice ufider 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. Under
Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, 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
enlargement 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.
ob
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Depaitment's action is based
must contain the following information:

(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the Department
permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or
activity is located;

(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department
action;

(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;

(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;

(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification
of the Department action;

(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and

(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that
the petitioner wants the Department to take.

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 adminiistrativr
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.
