Drug Supply

The varsity Wildcats' season debut ended abruptly last Friday night when a lightning storm struck, dashing fans'
hopes for an action-packed evening of gridiron excitement. But the wait will soon be over. The 'Cats will take to the
field again tomorrow (Friday) night at 7:30 in Sebring for what will become the first game of the regular season, bar-
ring, of course, another weather-induced rest. Here, "Oscar" bides his time before kickoff.

The Hardee Wildcat football team will play at Sebring Friday
at 7:30 p.m. It should be a good close game. The Blue Streaks have
a fine passing attack.
Last Friday night at Hardee Stadium the Wildcats and Fort
' Meade played for six minutes. 40 seconds before a lightning rain-
storm cancelled the game. Fort Meade was ahead 13-0.
Hardee fans had little to cheer about. The Miners returned the
Opening kickoff for a touchdown. The Cats blocked a field goal.
Hardee lost a fumble. On fourth down and four the Miner quarter-
back broke loose for a 20-yard touchdo~ n.
Hardee had the-ball two times, making one first down and had
one five-yard penalty. The Cats looked good on pass defense, and
pretty good on run defense, except for one lapse.
[ Hindsight is 20-20, of course. Here is how the 400 seconds
could have been different for Hardee.
1.) Hardee won the toss. Take the ball on offense. Don't kick
.y.-offto-start the-game.-New-Miner.heaiLeoach iJaale.Cornelius was
4 4favorrite-player-eF-UF head eoacs-Utban MayeP,- who coaches the
G .Oators special teadfi: It: would figpte thaTFort NMeade under
SCorinelius would have good special team play.
2.) If Hardee does choose to kick off, hope the kicker booms
, one into the end zone or lofts a high deep ball, allowing the Cat
S.defense to get downfield. Instead the kick was mishit, a low bounc-
ing ball that got to a Miner receiver quickly at the 15 who followed
Sa wall of blockers untouched into the end zone and a Miner touch-
down within the first 11 seconds.
S 3.) Trailing 7-0 the Cats returned the kickoff to the Hardee 30.
i A five-yard loss on the first play was followed by runs of 2 and. 12
S yards, setting up a fourth and one at the Hardee 39. A bad center
i snap caused the punter to get tackled at the Hardee 17. A good snap
and punt could have moved the pigskin into Fort Meade territory,
. provided the Miners did -not get a big punt return. This special
Steams mistake (No. 2 on the night) resulted in a blocked Miner
' field goal attempt and the Cats recovered at the Hardee 10.
4.) Following a Cat penalty and a dropped pass, Hardee ran
for 16, 4 and 5 yards before losing a fumble at the, Cat 25.
Eliminate the fumble and the Cats may' have driven to a tying
, touchdown. . . .
5.) The Miners gained zero nbtyards on two rushing attempts
and gained six yards on a pass completion, setting up a fourth and
Four at theHardee 20. The Miner QB could not find an open receiv-
er and br6ke through the line of scrimmage and had a clear path to
Sthe end zone. The point-after kick was wide. If the Cats had forced
Sa turnover on downs, the final score would have been 7-0.
S Football is tough game. Every team makes several mistakes ,
Sin a game, even in the pros. Last Friday Hardee made more mis-
takes than the Miners. We will never know how the game would
/have turned out if four quarters 'were played. Hardee is usually
Good at fighting back from a deficit.
The Miner-Wildcat 400 seconds of-football on Sept. 4 does not-
go.into the record books as an official game. It will not be reached"?
Suled, it was announced.
Former UF head coach Doug Dickey, who won SEC titles at
STennessee but not at Florida, ised to emphasize not making mis-
Stakes to lose the game, thus preventing a win. In essence, he said in
Order to win you must first avoid losing.
FSU head coach Bobby Bowden, whose Seminoles lost to
' Miami 38-34 Monday night, blamed mistakes for the loss. He said,.
his team "out-mistaked" Miami. "You don't win games, you lose
' them." FSU mistakes included an interception, a lost fumble, and
Spoor secondary coverage.
Gator head coaches Steve Spurrier and Urban Meyer believe
Sin grabbing a game by the throat early and winning Big. The brief
Action Friday night indicated Fort Meade's Jemalle cornelius has
adopted the Meyer coaching strategy of trying to e ablish domi-
nance early in the game.

He speculated that they could
not pay even more this year.
S Chapman was the lone dis-
senter in the first public hearing
on a budget which will raise
taxes by about two percent, or
about $14 for average home-
ow ners. The final public hear-
ing on the proposal for 2009-10
is set for Tuesday at 5:10 p.m.
in the Board Room at 200 S.
Florida Ave. in Wauchula.
Board member Mildred
Smith voted against the raised
millage rate. It passed 4-1 in
that first public hearing.
In agreeing to the tentative
budget and millage, board
members Jan Platt, Wendell
Cotton and Joe Jones pointed
out that the state Department of
Education upped its require-


Task Force members investigat-
ed allegations that Rosales was
a narcotics dealer. Information
obtained by detectives led to the
issuance of a search warrant for
the house.
Detectives entered the resi-
dence at about 7:15 p.m. on
Thursday, July 16.
There, Dey said, Rosales told
them he had methamphetamine,
and that they would find it in
his child's bedroom, in the sec-
ond drawer of a dresser.
Searchers found the narcotic'
just where the father described,
he said.

Summer .is a time for back-
yard barbecues and.soaking up
the sun's rays. ;
For those without a backyard,
however, the local park is often
the place for picnics and sum-
Smer gatherings with family and
friends.
. Those heading off to the park
this summer to grill oout and
enjoy the summer sun, should
consider the following tips to
ensure the park stays clean.
* Control smoking. Cigarette
butts unfortunately litter the
nation's parks. To ensure this
doesn't happen at your next pic-
nic, don't allow guests to smoke
or, if they must, bring a couple
of ashtrays for them.
* Pay attention. Though it
can be difficult to keep a con-
stant eye on guests and .still
enjoy yourself, it's important to


ment for Hardee County tax-
payers, from 2008-09's 5.281
millage rate. to the proposed
5.467 for 2009-10.
That tax amount represents
the "local effort" the county
must show in order to be eligi-
ble for a bounty of state fund-
ing, funding which supports the
bulk of the district's annual
expenses.,
SThe portions of the total tax
millage which are controlled
solely by the local School
Board remain unchanged from
2008-09. Chapman, however,
asked that they be lowered to
compensate.
STotal millage is set to.go
from the current 7.779 to the
proposed 7.965 if thie budget
and tax rate pass their final
exam on Tuesday.

A search of Rosales himself
allegedly revealed abag of mar-
ijuana in the front watch pocket
:of his pants.
Dey said all suspected sub-
stances field tested positive as
narcotics.
Rosales was taken into cus-
tody. He was charged with the
drug counts and with endanger-
ing his child, Dey said.
Dey called narcotics "a major
problem" in Hardee County,
and noted users and dealers will
go to.extremes to hide their
illicit activities.


pay attention at the picnic to
ensure trash and' other litter
doesn't blow away. Wind can
blow litter into local water-
ways, negatively impacting
water quality and hurting
marine life as well.
* Bring your own trash
receptacles. If it's a busy day at
the^paik, you might not be able
to grab an ideal picnic spot
where trash cans are within
reach. So bring your own trash
receptacles or just a couple of
extra garbage bags to be sure
you collect all trash and don't
make a negative impact on the'
park.
* Make .guests help! Hosts
aren't the only ones responsible
for picking up their trash. Be
sure to let guests know they,
need to pick up after them-
selves.


If girls and boys grow up in an atmosphere of frankness
and fair play and consideration for others, and with a
sense of responsibility toward their own families and
communities, then-they are as safe today as they were
when I was young.

The American Heart Association says Americans need to cut
back their sugar intake. The AHA says Americans average 22 tea-
spoons of sugar a day, and women should be getting 6 and men 9
teaspoons a day. A regular 12-ounce soft drink has 8 teaspoons of
sugar.
Major sources of added sugar in the American diet are regular
soft drinks, cakes, cookies, pies, sugars and candy, stated the AHA.
-Getting a lot of exercise allows one to consume more sugar com-
ipared to an inactive lifestyle.

REGISTER NOW FOR HUNTING CLASS
With the 'dog days of summer still upon us, it's hard to think
about hunting. But if you're between the ages of 16 and 34 and
haven't yet taken the state's hunter, safety class,'now's just the time
to be thinking about it.
Many of these classes, offered statewide, fill u'p fast during
hunting season as people scramble to get certified. -
Everyone 16 or older and born after May 31, 1975, must com-
plete the hunter safety requirement before they can buy a Florida
hunting license.
There is one exception. A law passed a couple of years ago \
allows individuals to hunt under the supervision of a licensed :
hunter, 21 or older, without having to complete the, state's course.
It's called the "Hunter Safety Deferral," and it enables those per-
sons to purchase a Florida hunting license and hunt on a one-year"
trial basis. It's designed to encourage experienced hunters to teach
-.novice hunters about Outrport.andis a great incentive for getting
more people to give hunting a try.
If you need to take the course, register now, before season
opens.
You can register for a hunter safety class by. going to
MyFWC.com/huntersafety or by contacting your nearest FWC
regional office. Also; there are two versions for your convenience.
There's the traditional course, which is 12 hours of classroom
instruction plus a four-hour field day, or you can opt for taking the
online or CD-ROM version at home. But, you'll still have to sign
up for the "skills day" part.
SThe traditional course is offered during four weekdays or on a
Saturday/Sunday. If you take it during the week, each session is
three hours and offered after normal working hours. On the week-
end, you'll spend eight hours Saturday and four hours Sunday
morning in'the classroom. The remainder of Sunday you'll move
over to the shooting range to complete your certification.
The first thing you'll learn about in the traditional class is
Florida's many hunting laws. An FWC law enforcement officer
i gives this introduction. Volunteer hunter safety instructors teach
the remaining curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics, hunter responsibility, parts of firearms, :
various hunting lingo and the proper way to shoot. You'll discover
the differences between various bullets, calibers and gauges; how
to identify game animals; and learn wildlife conservation and best
management practices for native species.
In addition, you'll find out about outdoor survival techniques
and learn how to administer First Aid in the field.
Archery and fundamentals of bowhunting also are taught.
In your last hour in the classroom, you'll be given a standard-
ized test of true-or- false and multiple-choice questions. All you
need is to score an 80 percent or better, and then you get to move
outside to the shooting range for the field day portion.
This part takes about four hours. During that time you'll get to
shoot clay pigeons with a shotgun, practice your archery skills and
target practice with a .22 rifle. You'll also receive a muzzleloader;
demonstration, where you'll have the chance to shoot one if you'd
like. All guns, bows, targets and ammo are provided. All you have
to do is-take aim! j
After you complete the field day, you'll be given your hunter
safety card. At that point you can purchase a Florida huntitigj
license and get ready for opening day. .
If you choose to take the hunter safety class online or by CD-
ROM, you'll learn all of the above-mentioned material and be
given a practice test to prepare you for theJast segment - the skills
day.
----Skill days-take abou-four- hours -to complete. You'll learn!
much of what is taught during the traditional course, including!
hunting laws and ethics, how to handle firearms safely, when to
take a shot and where to take aim. Then you'll get to shoot on the:
range and be given the same standardized test.
Register today to take a hunter safety class because the 2009-
'10 hunting season.is just around the corner. Remember, safe hunt-
ing is no accident!
Tony Young is. a media relations coordinator for the FWC's
Division of Hunting and Game Management. You can .reach him,
with questions about hunting at Tony. Young@FWC.com.

Kevin's
Top Ten List
Top Ten Reasons Guys think
watching football on TV is
actually GOOD for a marriage:
10. If you both like the same team
during a game, write it off as
"bonding".
9. Since she likes to shop, have her
help pick out that perfect
big-screen...call it a compromise.
8. Have your wife invite her mom over
during the game...tell her she's in
charge of bringing the dip...explain the
irony.
7. Teamwork=Running to the kitchen
together to "refuel" during
commercials.
6. Gives guys a perfect chance to
practice "angelic look" while explain
how ugly those cheerleaders are.
5. She likes to cook: Here's a chance
to practice that "wing" recipe she's
been dying to try. It's flawless.
4. She always complains that you're
never home. Problem solved. I'll be
here on the couch all day if you need
me...honey".
3. Few things in life are more attractive
than a stubble-faced man in a
food-stained jersey & boxers cursing a
flat screen TV.
2. Remember the "fun" she had making
meals for the holidays? These game
day snacks aren't going to just cook
themselves!
1. Gives you three hours to glance at
the mute button, look at your wife,
back to the mute button...and quietly
wish "what if?".
"Girls, your turn next week."

authority" over county tax
money.

The Wauchula City Council
hardened its heart toward coun-
ty residents - but not enough.
The city will continue to extend
fire protection to outlying areas,
but whether to respond will be
the decision of Fire Chief
Burton Moseley. He will have
to decide if it would endanger
city residents by going to an
outlying fire.

Two policies approved last
week will affect pre-schoolers
and first graders. Skipping
grades has not been practiced in
Hardee County in years and the
child should be kept in its own
age group for best adjustment,
the Board of Public Instruction
argued in refusing the request
of a mother to enroll her child
in second grade. Tutored at
home, she passed the first-grade
achievement test at the top of
her class. A second policy will
not allow kindergarten students
to ride public school buses
unless the parent signs a waiver
of damages.

Realtor J.G. Terrell has 10
acres by the city available for
$2,500 and 10 acres three in
.grove, a three-bedroom home
and outbuildings for $7,000.
C.T. Ratliff has 10 acres, eight
in grove unhurt by the freeze,
for $9,500, and a three-bed-
room frame home with ceram-
ic-tile bath on paved street con-
venient to school for $10,000.

25 YEARS AGO
The Hardee County School
Board gave unanimous approv-
al Friday to a contract agree-
ment with the teacher's union
that will give local educators
pay raises from 6.5 to 7.5 per-
cent. The agreement came after
four weeks of bargaining; and
raises the average teacher's pay
by $1,500.

Sheriff Doyle Bryan was the
only incumbent elected in
Tuesday's local primary. Peggy
Shackelford edged oat incum-
bent John Terrell for superinten-
dent of schools. New School
Board members are Gordon,
Norris and. Linda Clark. Jim
Moye was elected tqothe County
Commission and Ca'olyn Cok-
er will be the property apprais-
er.

There were l2 atries in the

The first five tropical storms
of the year - Arlene, Bret,
,Cindy, Dennis and Emily -
'just churned around without
affecting the Florida mainland.
But Floyd, Gert, Harvey, Irene,
Jose and Katrina may be on the
way. Midway through the 1999
hurricane season, activity is
heating up.

A routine police call turned
into a trio of arrests by an alert
Hardee County deputy early
Saturday morning. Items stolen
Friday night on SR 64 were
recovered and two Miami men
and a juvenile, who had gotten
their vehicle stuck at Pioneer
Park and requested assistance,
were arrested.

Between tardiness, gradua-
tion requirements and gang-
related behavior, the Hardee
County School Board covered
the gamut of topics at last
week's meeting. At a workshop
before the meeting, the board
worked on its pupil progression
plan and code of student con-
duct. The highlights of the 181
pages of recent changes to State


mation on how to put food up in
different ways.
I would like to have a
fall/winter garden, but we need
help - volunteers like me to
work the garden and harvest.
It can be a lot of work but the
rewards are great. My personal
rewards were the fresh air, sun-
shine and friends. The harvest:
was a bonus from all the work.
This is also a great way to learn
more about gardening and give
back to your family and friends.
If anyone is interested they
can call me Julie Ellis at 863-
773-6370 or Mary Mitchell at
the County Extension Office
863-773-2164.
We will have our first meet-
ing on Wednesday, Sept. 23,
2009 at 10 a.m. in the extension
office.
I' would also like to thank
everyone who helped out in the
spring and the extension office
for putting up with us. Thanks a
bunch everyone.

INCREASE IN RESEARCH TAX PROPOSED
Florida citrus growers are being asked to consider a two-cent
increase in a self taxing referendum. If approved, the funding will
be used to continue efforts to further research on Greening and
Canker, and other diseases posing a threat to the Florida citrus
industry.
Since 1991, growers have paid $.01 per box of citrus produced
to research. This money is collected by the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services and overseen or administered
by the Florida Citrus Production Research Advisory Council
(FCPRAC).
When Greening research elevated to the highest priority of the
Florida citrus industry, this- system began to change. FCPRAC,
which had overseen a budget between $1-2 million over the years,
suddenly found itself with $20 million. This increase came from
the Florida Department of Citrus advertising programs, also paid'
by growers. The shift of funding from advertising to research
notates the severity of Greening in Florida groves.
Being mindful of grower dollars, FCPRAC determined the
National Academy of Sciences should be asked to organize the
research by determining worthy projects and prioritizing all
research completed. The Academy's recommendation was then
reviewed by FCPRAC for final approval.
This was the first step in transforming the original research
system. The plan for the new entity was to organize the research,
oversee the research projects determining if they are worthy of con-
tinuance, but most importantly take the research results and com-
mercialize them into a product to be used in Florida groves.
The final stop in this transformation is the Citrus Research
Development Foundation (Foundation). It is the Direct Service
Organization organized by Senator J.D. Alexander under the
University of Florida. Consisting mainly of growers from around
the state, the entity also has board members from the University of
Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Science and the Florida.
Department of Agriculture. Since its inception earlier this year, the'
Foundation has beenorganizing and preparing to be the research.
entity of our industry.
This effort was furthered when FCPRAC voted to disband and
become an advisory committee to the new Foundation. In doing
this, changes must be made in the Florida Department of
Agriculture Statutes making the Foundation the beneficiary of the
referendum taxes. The current research referendum will sunset
Aug. 1, 2010. A new referendum, if approved will last for six years.
Growers are being asked to support increasing the tax from
$.01 to $.03, and moving all functions (research oversight and
-funding) to the Foundation.
As mentioned previously, the Florida Department of Citrus
(FDOC) was asked to use some of its box tax income to elevate the
research funding to the level needed for worldwide research recog-
nition and input. Some of the FDOC box tax has again been bud-
geted this year to continue multiyear projects. The increase from
one cent to three cents is meant to ultimately replace the FDOC as
a funding source.
A draft referendum ballot will be created soon. Florida citrus
growers can expect to see the ballot in their mail boxes in.
December. The referendum will require an approving vote of 65
percent of Florida citrus growers and 51 percent of the.volume of
fruit produced to move forward. If the referendum is approved,
changes will be made to the Florida Department of Agriculture
Statutes during the 2010 State Legislative Session to enact the tax
and use the Foundation as the industry's research entity.
All growers must become educafhd regarding this issue. We
encourage growers with questions to contact a.ny of the state or
regional grower associations for more information. Knowing all
the facts of the issue is important to informed voting.

Dear Editor:
SI was involved in the com-
munity garden for the first time
this past spring. I became
involved because. I have a son
who loves to garden as much as
I do. He wanted to learn more
than I could teach him.
Although the garden meet on
Wednesday mornings he did
help when out of school and on
weekends. I ias there every
time we meet. This also gave
him something to do with mom
that he enjoyed.
I now have a 4-H club called
The Seedlings. Just for him. We
will learn about gardening and
horticulture.
In the community garden we
grew corn, beans, peas, squash
and cucumbers. My family is
still eating the vegetables we
put up. It has really helped on
food cost.
I did enjoy the new friends I
made. We learned about soil
and nutrients it needs and what
to add, what grew best for our
soil and the time of year. We
also shared recipes and infor-

Archery Tourney "On-Target"


Early morning dew sparkled
as targets were placed before
daylight at Central Florida
Bowhunter's archery range
south of Fort" Meade for the
tAug. 29 On Target Archery
Tournament.
It was one of several events
planned, by the First Baptist
Church of Bowling Green for
its .On Target Ministry. Other
upcoming events include skeet
shoots, g61f tourneys and fish-
ing tournaments, as well as


other archery tournaments.
As the sky brightened at the
Aug. 29 tournament, 100 arch-
ers began to gather. Some came
from as far north as Wildwood,
some as far south as Cape
Coral.
'After scoring instructions
were reviewed, official scorers
and archery teams went to their
assigned targets. Shortly after 8
a.m., the starter's horn sounded.
One arrow shot at each of 20
three-dimensional targets was

allowed each archer.
The official scorer awarded
12 points for a bull's eye, or 10,
8, and 5 points for the distance
from the bull's eye. Ranges to
the targets varied. Eacfh aicher
had to estimate the distance as
range finders, were not allowed.
When all archers had finished
by 11 a.m., scores were tallied
for the Youth, ages 9 to 14, and
Women's and Men's divisions,
age 15 and over. They partici-
pated in door prize drawings
and listened to a short devotion-
al by Pastor Blake Albritton.
Scoring resulted in two ties.
It took a sudden death shoot-off
to decide adult winners. The
four highest scores in the Men's
division took three shots before
the ties were broken; the top
two Women's division took four
shots to break the tie.
After a free barbecue chicken
dinner, prizes were presented
about 1 p.m. Top winners were
Caleb Brandeberry- youth, 178
points; Cacee Sharpe-Women's,
135 points; and Bryce Burnett-
Men's, 191 points.

,' Greetings from Fort Green!
SQuite often you meet people
in, unusual places. At Roger
'ianey's visitation some of the
Ptrt Green folks advised me
Someone wanted to meet me.
'Itwas Velma Deters who used
t6o.ive in thb College Hill Com-
munity. Ifelt like I had met her
before but alas; I' m getting to
that age and can't remember!
S1I know visitations are for the
family but at most funerals, etc.
someone invariable says we
should get together and visit
before something like this hap-
pens. We were all awarded this
opportunity at Steve Haney's
benefit. Steve got to see how.
many people loved him and
everyone got to visit and have a
.good time.


As ya'll know, Steve took his
final journey last Monday, just
30 days after his benefit. Our
church and community 'were
truly saddened. Steve and BJ
are part of our, adult Sunday
School class. We will all miss
Steve.

I live on a dirt road and one
of the appealing things about
our house when we first looked
at it to purchase was wild petu-
nias grew along the 'side and
grass in the middle of the tire
tracks. You could pass a car, but
you had to be careful, but there
was not that much traffic! In the
40 years I have lived here, the
county has dug dut the ditches
and it is a wide dirt road.

The Real Florida

State Park Ranger


A RIDDLE FROM NATURE
What can fit on a penny, is beautiful td behold, and yet would
be devastating to find in a forest?
It's attracted'to purple, but we don't know yet why, and likes,
to hitch rides though it knows how to fly. It is hidden from view,
yet is obvious to see, but you won't likely find it unless you are a
- woodpecker or preparing a campfire.
I bet I've stumped you on this one.
Even if you've seen the purple EAB traps spinning in the
Breeze out here in Highlands Hammock State Park, Ibet you did-
n't realize they're a clue to this riddle. There are three of these plas-
Stic, purple, kite-like boxes generating lots of questions. One is
S located in an oak tree in the family campground, the second is
hanging in a Pop ash (Fraxinus caroliniana) tree at the County
Road intersection, and the final one is located off of the tram tour
route, also in a Pop ash tree.
Have you figured it out yet? I've already given you the answer.
Now I'll explain the details.
The EAB stands for the Emerald Ash Borer, also known as the
"'Green Menace."
This imported insect is native to China and eastern Asia. I said
Sit was beautiful to behold and it is, indeed, an attractiveinsectdue
S mostly to its bright metallic green body. This beetle is also very
tiny, measuring just a ?-inih in length and about 1/8-inch wide, eas-
ily allowing it to fit on the, face of a penny.
Believed to have been introduced to this country within wood-
packing materials in southeastern Michigan, this beetle was not
officially identified until the summer of 2002.


in Fort Green really did a good
job. He cut the maiden. cane
back sufficiently to let you see
around the curve. If you were
daring enough you could speed
around the curve now, but
remember there are mighty
deep ditches!
SLabor Day weekend takes
quite a few members away from
church and on trips. Randy and
Faye Davis, Edith 'Bassett and
Norma went to DeFuniak
Springs to see Johnmark, Amy,
Rebeka and Aaron for the
weekend. They always have a
terrific time.
The Hardee swimming team
is active. Last Tuesday, Sept. 1,
they went to a meet in Winter
Haven. Now there are several
schools competing in a meet
and we were pleased, Jake
Willis took a second place and
TK Hogenauer took second in
diving. Thursday night the meet
was in Lakeland and TK took
first place in diving. Being his
Mema, I was especially proud
of him! The Hardee boys and
girls teams are really supportive
of each other. They might not
have cheerleaders at swith
meets, but the entire teams are
together cheering on the one
who is competing.
Arthur Womack is feeling
better and back at church.
Mary Bargeron is a little under
the, weather and that means
tests. She and Earl want to take
a trip but the doctors keep them
to busy.
Our 5th Sunday night sing
was well attended. We had good
singers, among them Brianna
Waters;and the Chancey family
sang and played, Chrysta, Lee
and Makayla. We are blessed
with good musical talent at Fort'
Green, among" them Connie
Abbott, Carol Brown, Charles
Abbott, Tim Casey, and Sher-
man Cooper. Cindy Walker had
special guests singing, iher
brother and friends from Lake-
land.
Mr. Leo Blink is still under
the weather with his hand. He is
in quite a bit of .pain, even
though he has medication.
Our fall revival begins Sun-
day; September 13. Brother
Randy Perry of Dahlonega, GA
is the evangelist. There will be
special music every night. Be-
'sides Randy being a super
singer, his wife Mary has a
beautiful voice. Randy used to
travel with the Perry family, a
renowned Southern Gospel
Group.
The services will be Sunday
morning and Sunday evening at
6 p.m. and then Monday
through Wednesday nights it


will begin at 7 p.m. You will
be welcome" and will hear a
good message and some good
singing.
I doubt that Randy remem-
bers this, but during one of his
revivals, a teenager came in and


set down near the front .and,
Randy was preaching "hot and
heavy" when the teenager's cell
phone went the traditional
"beep, beep" that you hear-
everywhere, grocery store, etc.
Well, without missing a beat,


Randy looked over at the tedh-
ager, who he personally knew,
and said "That better be God!" I
chuckle every time I think
about it!
Ya'll come and pray for one
another.

What's this triangular box all about?
As tiny as it is, it is currently known to be responsible for the
.,decline and death of more than 15 million ash trees in a 20-county
i area around Detroit. This is a lot of trees and, unfortunately, it only
'.,gets worse.
Hitching a ride within the shipping containers of auto parts and
Similar materials, this beetle landed and silently set up housekeep-
ing. Currently it is known to infest Michigan, Ohio, Maryland,
'Indiana, Virginia and also some parts of Canada, devastating those
Forest areas.
The Emerald Ash Borer only attacks ash trees (Fraxinus spp.).
''Adults mate from May to August, and eggs are laid in the bark
creyices of ash trees. Once the eggs hatch, the worm-like larvae
* 'burrow under the baik of the tree' to feed, creating tunnels which
,:,eventually kill the tree.
In May of the following year, the larvae have completed their
..life cycle and emerge as adults, beginning the process all over
,again.
Adults only fly a half mile, so you may wonder why we are
. concerned about them getting in the Hammock.
Here's where it gets really interesting.
SOur campground reservations are handled by Reserve
America, and this company was polled to find where the greatest
concentration of people traveling from the infested areas go to
escape the bitter winter weather. Guess what? They come to
:Highlands Hammock and several other state parks in sunny
.-Florida.
Due to the high numbers of visitors traveling from these areas,
we have been chosen as a sentinel site. In other words, the purple
traps are lures to draw these insects so that we can determine if
there are any showing up in our location. Thus far, we have not yet
found any in the traps, and that is really great news.
Should you be concerned? In this area of Florida, the only
native ash is the Pop ash, found in wetland areas. If you have non-
native ash species growing in your yard, watch for gradual decline.
IEABs leave exit holes in the shape of the letter D, and S- shaped
:tunnels will be found under the bark of infested trees. Removal of
infested trees is currently the suggested method of control.
Keep an eye on your firewood, too. It's believed that this is
'how this insect is traveling around the country. Sometimes visitors
.,bring firewood and then don't use it all. It used to be that it was
good camping manners to leave it for the next guy, but not so any-
more. Be sure to burn all firewood you pack whenever you travel,
least you become another vector for one of these nasty pests.
As usual, the biggest problem with the EAB is that it has no
known predators to keep its numbers in check. Woodpeckers will
eat the larvae, but apparently they are reproducing too rapidly for
this feeding activity,to offer good control.
I hope you've enjoyed this riddle and have a better under-
standing of our purple, prism traps. This is just one of many
resource management programs going on in the background with-
* in the state park.'

LIE DETECTOR EXPERT


Dr. Cary Pigman, medical director of Hardee County Fire/Rescue, spoke to the Hardee
Rotary Club on Wednesday, Aug. 26. The department has 39 firefighter/paramedics.
The new fire budget is $3.55 million, and the Emergency Medical Services (ambulance)
budget is $1.77 million. Budget expenses are 54 percent personnel; operating, 8 per-
cent; capital, 14 percent; and contingency/cash reserve, 23 percent. A basic EMT cer-
Stification requires 360 hours of training, paramedic EMT an additional 1,200 hours, and
firefighter an additional 480 hours, for a total of 2,040 for a firefighter/paramedic.
SPictured (from left) are Sheriff Arnold Lanier, club President Harold Davis, Pigman and
Dr. Joseph Toulouse.

Sd A DOG IS A DOG
, A dog is a dog.
He may be small or large, colored or plain, but if he has a dog's
nature, he will be doglike without any effort. He will not change
Into a cat or progress into being human.
S A Christian is a person who has undergone a transformation
From a sinner to a saint. He has been given a new nature, a new life
- in Christ. He is designed to live forever.
However, unlike a dog that can always be depended upon to be
Sdglike, the Christian has a will and, therefore, must choose to
embrace his new nature in order to manifest its qualities
- What-God is getting at here is creaiing a being who voluntari-
ly chooses righteousness, and therefore is like God and can have
fellowship with Him.
The reason we see so much ungodlike behavior in people who
Scall themselves "Christian" is that we have an enemy who is
always trying to get us mixed up about who we are and who God
S is.
However, God's love for us is beyond imagination, and He
Provides a way back (repentance) when we sin and a way forward
in faith.

Youth Football
By Paul Paris
Hardee Youth Football League had another great day of foot-
ball Saturday at Wildcat Stadium.
We hosted the Fishhawk Wolfpack and at the end of the day we
were 3 for 3. Hardee Flag had a close one, with the Wolfpack Flag
to start the day off. Next the Tiny Mite Wildcats doubled the
Wolfpack Blue team efforts. Our Wildcat Mitey Mite team shut out
the Wolfpack White 19 to 0.
Then our Jr. Pee Wee team duplicated the score to defeat the
Wolfpak ,White 19 to 0.. Pee Wee Wildcats had a tough time
against the Wolfpack Blue losing 27 to 6. The Midget Wildcats
were on the road playing the Palm Harbor Panthers. Their first
night game of the year was a loss,.14 to 0.
Next week all teams are tra\eline to Buffalo Creek Park to
play the North Manatee Storm. The Storm home field i. located-at
7550 69th Street East, Palmetto. Games beg't�h at 9 a.)i"
In order to have a Youth football program in Hardee, it did not
just begin in August. January/February of 2009 the season began
with organizational meetings, bylaw revisions, and elections of
board members and officers. Hardee joined a new league called the
Foundation for Youth Development, FYD for short, headquartered
in Tampa. In the spring there were several fundraisers and coaches
were selected.


Registration began in May. Various registration dates were,
offered through the summer until all 11 football and cheer squads
were established. At each registration, the team a child would fit
best on is determined. This is based on age with the cheerleaders,
and age and weight with the football players. The guidelines estab-
lished by the Pop Warner Little Scholars determine what division
the child is eligible for and the HYFL Coaches and Board work
with parents to determine what is best for that child.
In addition the child must produce a report card proving they
have a 2.0 GPA. They must have a Physician sign a physical fitness
form certifying that they are fit enough to participate. Registration
fees must be paid, and a parental consent form must be signed. A
birth certificate is also required to verify age. After all of this infor-
mation is compiled then the child is allowed to begin practice Aug.
1.
For 2009, there are 250 kids participating in the program.
HYFL is proud of the hard work and effort that is put forth by all
of the volunteers, coaches and sponsors helping with the League.
As DeMarice F Smith, Chairman ofthe NFL Ploi6ers Inc.-:said
about Pop Warner; "Youth cross A.-meia look up.o you asmen-
tors and leaders not only in the game of football, but in the game
of life. Remember how important that experience is for them, as
it was for me - both now and long into the future."
Hacrdee Youth Football League is a proud member of the- Pop
Warner Little Scholars. Pop Warner is the only nationwide foot-
ball program that places more emphasis on scholastic achievement
than on football and cheerleading.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"The 'Cats started the season
off on the winning path against
Port Charlotte."
Hardee boys golf coach
George Heine succinctly related
his team's first match of the
season.
This week, the boys were at
Pinecrest to play against Avon
Park on Tuesday and travel to-
day to the Lake Wales Country
Club for a match against Frost-
proof. Next week, it is back to
the Lake Wales Club on Tues-
day to play the Lake Wales
Highlanders and another home
match on Sept. 17 vs. Lake
Placid.
Against Port Charlotte, junior
Lincoln Saunders led with .a 39
and one birdie. "This was his
first time in 'prime time' and he
came through nicely," said
Heine. Saunders was quite suc-
cessful this summer on the
Sertoma Youth Golf Tour.
Soph Daniel Miller came in
with a "nice" round of 40 and
returning leader junior Taylor
Barlow came around in 42 with
a birdie. Classmate Justin
Bromley finished out the scor-
ing with a 44 and one birdie.



IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE
10th JUDICIAL CIRCUIT OF
FLORIDA, IN AND FOR HARDEE
COUNTY


CASE NO. 25-2009-CA-000115


Only the low four scores count
on team scoring.
Soph Matt "38 Special"
Godwin had a 46 and classmate
Dalton Hewett finished at 55 to
round out the scoring.
Meanwhile, Hardee girls golf
had a pair of outings last week.
On Tuesday, they were at home
to play Frostproof and Avon
Park. The Lady Devils of Avon
Park won with 205, the Lady
Dogs of Frostproof were next
and Hardee had the high score.
Junior leader Kara Norris led
the team around the course with
a 50, followed by Emily Willi-
ams, Lauren Moore and Macey,
Reas.
The girls went tq the
Cleveland Heights course in
Lakeland on Thursday, playing
Avon Park and Lakeland
Christian. Avon Park won with
210. Paige Moffat led with 41.
Early in the season, Avon Park
has a 4-0 record.
Norris tied with Sara
Honneycut of Avon Park and
Hannah Webster of Lakeland
Christian for second place with

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, the first weekend of college football is in
the books. The optimism of every fan is either enhanced or shaken
after seeing the reality of a game. The Gators did as expected. Next
week will be more of the same as they host Troy State, a team that
lost to Bowling Green last week. These games do give the fans a
chance to see the players that normally will be waiting their turn to
play in the future. The SEC romped through the first week, with the
exception of Georgia who lost to Oklahoma State. The Cowboys
are my surprise team in the Big 12 this year. The Dawgs will
bounce back. Alabama threw away some opportunities and helped
VPI stay in a game that should have been over by halftime.
Tennessee opened up well for Kiffin. He will get a test in two
weeks in the Swamp.
'The Buccaneers open the season at Raymond James this Sunday
against "America's Team", the Dallas Cowboys: The schedule
makers were not kind to the Bucs. A look at this season shows a
brutal run through the season. The New England Patriots will be
- played in London not Tampa. The NY Giants visit soon as well.
Despite the schedule, it is exciting to know the Bucs will be back
in action. The Pirate Ship firing canons will be beautiful music.
The ACC is ready to challenge with a team playing for the
National Championship, according to its delusional Commissioner
John Swafford. Maybe he needs to raid the Colonial Conference
to upgrade his football conference in order to keep the ACC's BCS
automatic Bowl Bid'? Richmond defeated Duke, while William &
Mary made short work of Virginia. Maryland was outclassed by
California as well. Dream on Mr. Swafford. Maybe someday you
will have more than empty seats imitating fans at your conference
championship game as well.
The Oklahoma Sooners are POed again in 2009. It is a thing
they have been saddled with for many years now. They are
"Perennially Overrated." Boise State, West Virginia, Florida and
now BYU have shown that Ihe days of Bud Wilkinson are gone. It
was a great legacy, but today they have not lived up to the hype for
many years. Sure, the loss of Sam Bradford can be pointed to, but
shouldn't a national power have a backup? The offensive line is
new as well. Bradford could be out for 3 to 4 weeks. That's very
unfortunate for a.good kid who in all probability is out of the
Heisman Race with this shoulder injury.
Now for this week's Bill O' Fare:
1.) Troy State at Florida - Look for more of the same from
the Gators. Another rout, lots of playing time for backups and a
tune-up for Tennessee. Florida 56 Troy State .6.
2.) East Carolina at. West Virginia - Mountaineers looking
for payback for last year. Noel Devine rushes for another 100-plus
yards to lead WVU. WVU 38 ECU 17.
3.) Marshall at Virginia Tech - Herd won but looked suspect
against SIU. Hokies are a 20-point favorite. Still have to go with
my heart and not my head. Marshall will beat the odds. VPI 34
Marshall 17.
4.) Syracuse at Penn State - Orange blew a win against
Minnesota. There is no chance in Happy Valley against JoPa. Penn
State 45 Syracuse 13.
5.) Jacksonville State at FSU - Noles will empty the bench
in this one. FSU 48 JSU 14.
6.) North Carolina at Connecticut - Huskies have a chance
to make an early statement by beating the Tar Heels. Their passing
game still needs work. UConn 24 UNC 21.
7.) USF at Western Kentucky - Bulls have no trouble with a
team that gave up over 60 points to Tennessee. This should be a
mismatch. USF 58 WKU 10.
8.) Notre Dame at Michigan - Have to be an Irish Fan for a
week in this one. Rodriguez is again broiled in controversy. How
long will Michigan.tolerate this guy? Notre Dame 34 Michigan 17


9.) Southern Cal at Ohio State - Buckeyes barely beat Navy.
This is that one chance to try to show the outside they matter
nationally. Southern Cal 38 Ohio State 23.
10.) UCF at Southern Miss - USM ground game will pound
UCF. USM 44 UCF 13.
11.) FIU at Alabama -- get your paycheck and get back to
South Florida FIU. Alabama 60 FIU 10.
12.) South Carolina at Georgia - Dawgs bounce back with a
win. Georgia 30 South Carolina 13.
13.) UCLA at Tennessee - Vols go to 2-0 and pack their bags
for Gainesville. Tennessee 35 UCLA 23.
14.) Vanderbilt at LSU - Tigers back in Baton Rouge on a
Saturday Night. Oh my, Vandy, this 'is not good for the
Commodores. LSU 46 Vandy 6.
15.) Louisville at Kentucky - Wildcats will destroy their
instate rivals as the Cardinals have iriploded since Petrino left.
Kentucky 55 Louisville 17.
16.) Dallas at Tampa -- Have to go with my heart and not my
head but I am pulling for Leftwich to make it happen. Tampa 27
Dallas 24.
17.) Miami at Atlanta - Pennington and the Fish start the
season with a very close win. Miami 23 Atlanta 21.
18.) Jacksonville at Indianapolis - Peyton Place is a hard
place to steal a victory. Indy 33 Jags 17.
19:) Tennessee at Pittsburgh - Steelers defend their Super
Bowl. Pittsburgh 31 Tennessee 20.
20.) Washington at NY Giants - Giants behind Ely and
'Bradshaw take the Skins. NYG 34 Washington 21.

MY WORLD Is SIN

Isit in jail,

My life derailed.

My mind is running-

My heart is burning -

For you, Lord, my love is yearning.
Sin is a sin,

My life just spins.

'Ups and downs,

All I want to do is frown.

For my world has come, crumbling down.

and

All I want to do is drown.

So I picked up a pipe,

for the moment seemed so ripe.

Hit after hit,

I just want to quit.

So sin is a sin,

It seems sometimes I just can't win.

In and out of jail,

All I do is fail.

For my life fell off the rail.

So please, Lord, forgive me for my sin.

I just want to win.

Of The Herald-Advocate
Where did Wauchula's $3.9
million go?
The answer to that is in the
annualreport prepared by City
Manager Rick Giroux.
The 43-page report for the
2008-2009 fiscal year details
what's happening in utilities
(electric, water, sewer), at the
airport, in the police department
and in community develop-
ment.
Property taxes are a rather
small portion of the city's rev-
enue, about $628,000. The
lion's share come from state
and federal grants, utility pay-
ments, other kinds of taxes
(gasoline, gross receipts, sales
and communication service)
and state shared revenue dol-
lars.
The city's audit was very pos-
itive and showed how the city
kept within budget restraints,
spent state and federal grant
monies according to their
requirements and how assets
were increased.
Total assets of $6.7 million
includes buildings, infrastruc-
ture and other fixed assets and
loans, interest and other monies
available for operation of the
city.
Including land, improve-
ments on buildings. the electri-
cal distribution, sewer and
water systems, machinery and
equipment and. construction in
progress, the total city invest-
ments in capital assets is $29.6
million.
The streetscape project on
U.S. 17 and Main Street, airport.
renovations and improvements
and wastewater Phase I all
added to the'city's outlook and
investment.

Wastewater Plant
One of the city's main, pro-
jects has been expansion of the
wastewater treatment plant.
When completed, it. will
increase capacityfrom one mil-
lion to three million gallons per
day. It would .il'o include a


for agricultural purposes./
The $3.5 million master lift
station and head works of Phase
I led into Phase II completion
which has been delayed by gen-
eral economic declines affect-
ing state revolving loans. Most
of the design is done.
When completed, the $16
million total project would bet-
ter serve the public, reduce
irifiltration and intrusion .and
accommodate residential and
commercial development when
it comes.

Water Plant
The city is presently permit-
ted for 2.3 million gallons per
day, but is allowed to only
obtain 1.1 million gallons from
the aquifer. Adding Deep Well
#5 will give the city an advan-
tage during drought conditions
that might otherwise hazard
public safety and health.
The city recently received a
$3 million American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act (stimulus
monies), a loan but with $2,55
million of it not having to be
repaid.
The new well, much deeper
than the others, will tie into the
others and the water treatment
plant.

Electric Substation
The city currently purchases'
bulk power wholesale from
Tampa Electric Co., and retails
it to city customers through the
city-owned distribution lines
and its 16.2 megawatts substa-
tion.
SThe $2 million rehabilitation
Project for the aged substation,
at the corner of Bay Street and
U.S. 17 has benefited from a
federal legislative appropriation
and economic development
grants which will enable it to
provide for commercial indus-
trial users as well as all its resi-
dents.
It will increase capacity to
49.5 megawatts.
Equipment (turbines, etc.)
have been ordered and both


Other Projects
After the top three projects on
which the city manager is occu-
pied, there are three dozen oth--
ers listed, varying from comple-
tion of the cemetery GIS or

depot renovations, negotiating a
real estate access dispute,
beginning renovations of the
old Ausley Library for the
Wauchula Garden Club, roofing
repairs on City Hall and acquir-
ing the Coker Fuel property.

Finance Department
The 11 employees here are
responsible for daily customer
service, reading of 14 meter
routes and monthly billing,
upgrading inventory, monthly
bank reconciliations, maintain-
ing pension plans, and payroll
and insurance deductions.

Public Works
There are 134 remote-read
water and sewer meters being
installed in Riverview Heights;
During the last year, public
works has been quite busy,
installing new electric, water
and sewer taps, replacing six
fire hydrants and piping 350
linear feet of new sewer line
There were 16 new trans-
formers installed, 12 transform-
ers and three line breakers were
installed and eight miles of
power line installed, including
removing 184 trees damaged by
hurricanes and other storms.
,City crews remodeled the

Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
businesses and projects.
Jessica Newman was hired as
the Main Street Wauchula
director and CRA coordinator
and has been busy organizing
downtown events, initiating a
frequent shopper card and
downtown dollar systems for
downtown businesses.

Police Department
Highlights of the year's work
include Capt. Thomas Harris'
acceptance and attendance at
the 10-week National FBI
Academy in Quantico, Va.
The department, first in the
county to be accredited,
received its third re-accredita-
tion, meeting all of the 237
standards of the Florida Law
Enforcement Accreditation
Commission.
Supervisory officers attended
several conferences on dealing
with gangs; cardiac, pediatric,
blood borne pathogens, haz-
ardous materials and emer-
gency care; field officer train-
ing; lethal weapons and motor
officer training; basic speed
measurement (radar), uniform
traffic control, victims advqca-
cy, . media relations; and
firearms and tasers.
Officers also assisted with
parades, and community activi-
ties, especially Relay For Life
and the Christmas toy drive.
There was new state-of-the-art
telecommunications installed
and the mobile crime unit was
.remodeled.
Officers also served search
warrants and made drug-related
arrests. Patrolman Jonathan
Corwin went with the Florida
National Guard to Iraq for a
year's deployment.


With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable.

SEEDS
FROM v
. ' THE
" SOWER



A boy was leaving Ireland
for the United States. His
father said, "Pat, my boy,
remember three bones and
you'll cone out all right."
"Which three?" he asked.
"The wishbone keeps you
going after things," he
answered. "The jawbone
keeps you asking questions.
And the backbone keeps'you
at it until you get there."
So often we wish for things,
and we use the jawbone and
pray for things, but we don't
use the backbone and keep at
it until the answer comes.
Whatever may be the delays
and disappointments, don't
stop praying.
The Living Bible says,
"Keep praying until the
answers comes."


A hopping for groceries
After work is never
relaxing, the store is crowded
and you have other places to

to the checkout line with a
full cart and a customer
Appears behind you with two
� items and cash in hand. what
will you do?
The minutes you lose by
Slletting that customer ahead

outweighed by the grateful

small demonstration of
patience could be the most
meaningful moment in your
busy day...and will make
little difference in your
evening schedule,
Where can you find this
patience? In Gods House,
you can learn of His
patience, mercy. and love for
us ..His children. This
special time of prayer.
praise. and fellowship can
add meaning to your week.

Junior 'Cats Drop Devils


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior Varsity
Wildcats started the season suc-
cessfully..
The three dozen-plus young
'Cats clobbered the Avon Park
junior Red Devils 31-14 in
opening night action at home
last Thursday.
"I'm always about opening at
home. I like to work out some
of the kinks first, before playing
in front of a home crowd," said
Head Coach Rod Smith.
He didn't have much to
worry about, as Hardee took an
18-0 halftime lead and finished
up 31-14.
Freshman running back/de-
fensive back Ullyses Taylor had
a good night, picking off a
Devil pass for a 30- to 40-yard
interception TD. He scored
again on a 90-yard kickoff
return.
Sophomore quarterback Col-


by Baker led the successful
night with a pair of TD runs and
a 20-yard TD pass to freshman
receiver Travis Britt. Freshman
Jose Garcia booted the PAT on
that play.
"Of course, we've got a lot to
work on. We were pretty
pleased as a staff with the first
game, but have to work on
penalties, blocking assignments
and the long snaps for punts.
Quarterwork/center exchanges
and Special Teams also need
some work. But it was a nice
way to get the season started,"
continued Smith.
All the players got some time
on the field, giving Smith and
assistant coaches Barry White,
Andy Judah, Todd Bolin, Shaun
Rivers and Lee Thomas a
chance to see them in game
action.
Other sophs joining Baker in
the game were Monte Carlton,
Braulio Duran, Justin Knight,


Murrell Winter, Carter Lambert,
Michael Pilkington, Dylan Farr,,,
Rito Lopez, Caleb Abbott,
Dillon Skitka, Kyle Williams,
Julian Varela, Uvaldo Sanchez,
Manny Delarosa and D.J.
Chapa.
Freshman included Taylor,
Britt, Jose Garcia, Aaron,.
Barker, Tyshan Hillard, Miguel',
Garcia, Steven Lopez, Octavio
Alvarez, Vince Grimsley,
Ledarius Camel, Richard 'Kirk,"
Noe Navarro, Hunter Collins,,,
and Matthew Selph
Other Freshmen are: Dillard-,
Albritton, Rufino Gabriel Jr.,
Bobby Swindle, Joshua Fowler,
Joseph McQuaig, Jose Lobato,
Jason Davidson, Michael
Moreno and Dallas Thomas.
The junior Wildcats are home'
again tonight (Thursday), greet-
ing Mulberry, a team they'
haven't played in a couple of
years.
Game time is 7 p.m.

COPING WITH ANGER
The story goes that one day a little child skipped along the
sidewalk and right through the fresh concrete a neighbor had just
finished spreading in front of his housQ .'The man, who was known
for his usually .even temperament, yelled at the cid.
Another neighbor approached him and said, "Why, I'm sur-
prised to see you so angry. I thought you liked children."
The first man replied, "I do like children, in the abstract, but
not in the concrete."
Well, nobody loves every child - or every grownup - in the
concrete at all times.
In fact, we can be absolutely infuriated with anybody if we are
overpowered by some wrong they've perpetrated against us -
either real or perceived. It could be a loved one or a stranger, but
an insult or injury and the loss of control that we experience can
make us literally "see red."
Of course, anger is a perfectly human emotion, but taken to
,extremes, it's dangerous.
These days, besides the everyday problems.we all face, the
stresses of this turbulent economy are creating additional burdens
at home and on the job as we try to keep our lives and our liveli-
hoods afloat.
Anger increases the heart rate, blood pressure and blood sugar
levels as well as raising the production of the hormones adrenalin
and noradrenaline. Medical professionals; tell us that over time,
intense anger - expressed orsuppressed - can Jead to headaches,
sleep disorders, high blood pressure, digestive problems, strokes,
heart attacks and even cancer.
And that's just how we can hurt ourselves..What about how
our anger affects others?
SThere are reports of anger that escalates to violence, from
domestic abuse to road rage attacks. Whatever the provocation,
when anyone moves from feeling mad to actual rage, he crosses the
line and people can get hurt.
So how do you keep cool when you're getting hot under the
collar?
Some tried and true methods include counting to 10 (or 100!);
taking slow deep breaths; getting away from the person or the sit-
iation for a while; engaging in physical activity; or talking the
problem over with someone you trust -'who won't exacerbate the
issue.
In a recent Christopher News Note, "Count to Ten - How To
Cope With Anger," Sara O'Gara of Sacramento, Calif., says,
"When I was younger, little petty things used to make me angry,
and now they don't. When someone was late, that would make me
mad, or if they didn't do what they said they were goingto do. But
then you come to the conclusion that anger can be a. self-destruc-
tive emotion because it paralyzes you and keeps you from focusing
on what you can do to fix it or make things work better."
Of course, when you're in the middle of a meltdown, it's hard
to focus on improving the situation, but ultimately that's the only
real answer. Locking things up inside or lashing put at others won't
make you feel better or resolve conflict.
And you might say a prayer like the one the Rev. Norman
Vincent Peale offered, "Lord, bring my temper under Your control.
Pour Your healing peace in my nervous system as well as in my
soul."

BILL TAKES STEPS TO PROTECT WILDLIFE
Amid all the media attention on health-care reform, economic
recovery and the first-moonwalk anniversary, a bill made its way
through the U.S. House of Representatives this summer.
It may be just one piece of legislation, but it is one gigantic
leap for the environment and wildlife.
The American Clean Energy & Security Act of 2009 contains
one section particularly important to wildlife - Natural Resource
Adaptation. It sets a policy "to protect, restore and conserve natur-
al resources to enable them to become more resilient, adapt to, and
withstand the impacts of climate change and ocean acidification."
This is a wise' course. Federal dollars will help state agencies
and others "on the'ground" implement the act - to make the kinds
of lasting impacts that will ensure our wildlife adapts and is
resilient to these projected changes.
Jackie Fauls, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission's director of legislative affairs,.says the money should
be there to help Florida's managers of wildlife.
"The bill includes language that will help fish, wildlife and
natural resources adapt in a warming world," Fauls said. "It pro-
vides one percent of revenues from a cap-and-trade system that will
go to domestic natural resource adaptation, beginning in 2012, and
will increase in allocation to four percent beginning in 2027."
The adaptation component for wildlife is crucial because the
experts agree that fish and wildlife will have to adapt to rising sea
levels and warming temperatures, or they will not survive. It is up
to the wildlife managers - in Florida state government, that's the.
FWC - to help them adapt and remain resilient.
The FWC has made adaptation of wildlife a priority by form-
ing first a Climate Change Team and then an adaptation group that
is already at work designing, planning and creating strategies that
will manage fish and wildlife in Florida for the challenges ahead.
The climate change bill has the potential to help agencies, such
as the FWC, implement these management strategies to ensure no
Species goes extinct as climate change becomes more and more
real.
"Climate change is a complicated issue," said Terry Doonan,
co-chairman of the FWC's Adaptation Working Group. "We have
some understanding of the impacts of climate change, but we have
much to learn about the specific impacts and how they change from
one part of the state to another. The more we understand, the better
we'll be at ensuring we do the best job possible of managing and
conserving Florida's diverse fish and wildlife species."

What Can You Do?
While the politicians debate the virtues of the bill - which
could go to a vote in the Senate sometime in the fall - and the
wildlife managers plan strategies, individuals can lower green-
house gas emissions, too.
The National Wildlife Federation asks us to do our part by tak-
ing the "Good Neighbor Pledge" found on its Web site at
http://online.nwf.org. I took the pledge today.
By promising such things as replacing five incandescent light
bulbs with compact fluorescent light bulbs; turning off lights when
not using them; turning off my PC, monitor and printer, when not
in use; unplugging electronic devices or putting them on a power
strip and turning it off; setting the thermostat two degrees lower or
higher, depending on the season; using the air-dry setting on my
dishwasher; and driving the speed limit, I passed the test to be a
Good Neighbor.
I even have a certificate to prove it, although I decided to save
the ink and paper and not print it out. It is the simple things we all
do together that can make a big difference for our f'iture.
At the federal, state or 'individual level, all of us can do our
best to ensure the forecast for fish and wildlife remains resilient
and hopeful.
