Marine Dies In Parachute Accident Here


COURTESY IMAGE
A C130 cargo aircraft similar to this one was used during
last Thursdays training exercise here.


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A U.S. Marine died here last
Thursday afternoon during a
routine parachute training exer-
cise.
Sgt, Jeremiah D. McGraw,
22, of Boynton Beach, was
killed when his chute became
tangled after jumping from a
C130 aircraft during a flight
over lands just south of Ona,
Col. Claude Harris Jr. of the
Hardee County Sheriffs Office
said.
Witnesses said McGraw be-
came entangled with another


Marine. Both broke free, and
the other Marine landed safely.
McGraw's backup parachute,
however, failed to open, reports
said.
Harris said McGraw died of
injuries sustained in the fall.
He was transported to Florida
Hospital Wauchula shortly after
a 911 call reported the incident
at 3 p.m., the colonel said.
McGraw was pronounced dead
at the hospital.
Harris said both the U.S.
Marine Corps and the Hardee
County Sheriffs Office are
investigating the accident. Det.


David Drake heads the investi-
gation here.
McGraw was a member of
the U.S. Marine Forces Re-
serves. He was a Selected Re-
serve Marine assigned to the
4th Air-Naval Gunfire Liaison
Co. in West Palm Beach, ac-
cording to the Marine's Public
Affairs Office in New Orleans.
The unit is more commonly
known as the 4th ANGLICO.
The Public Affairs Office
said the Marines were perform-'
ing routine training that day.
Harris said he and about 45
jumpers were working out of


the Wauchula Municipal Air-
port. 'The exercise site was
about four miles southwest of
the airport.
The jump spot was over
Mosaic lands, Harris said.
Mosaic owns hundreds of acres
south of Ona, including pasture,
farm and hunting lands.
Harris said McGraw was
killed about one mile south of
Ona off CR 663. The Marines
were landing just north of the S-
curves at the railroad tracks, on
the left, he described.

Rumors Spreading Faster Than H1N1 Flu


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A lot of rumors about swine
flu spreading around Hardee
County are not true.
"We've had only two con-
"firmed cases and they were both
before school started. The in-
fant and adult whose illnesses
were; confirmed as HINI
(swine) flu have both recovered
without further problems."
Dr. Stephen Gordon, Hardee
County Health Department
medical director, said Tuesday


that although Polk, Hillsbor-
ough and Highlands counties
are seeing a lot of cases, and it
is widespread throughout the
.state, it is only sporadic here.
"We're sending in four to five
specimens or cultures a week
but they are not coming back
confirmed. School nurses, for
instance at Hilltop Elementary,
are seeing 50 to 60 students
daily, but there have been none


'iith fever in at least the last six
days," Gordon said.
- Kids are reporting with the
routine earaches, stomachaches
and such. As soon as parents
hear of something, they take
their kids but of school as a pre-
caution. A lot of the absences
are due to this, he said.
"Actually, we're seeing more
anxiety than anything. Some-
times people have Influenza B


or another respiratory illness.
For instance, a child was diag-
nosed with swine flu in High-
lands County and was brought
here by his parents for treat-
ment. Yet, the child cultured
negative for HINI, and either
Influenza A or Influenza B,"
Gordon said.
This can happen because of a
rapid screening test, which
takes about an hour. The slide


for the presence of a flu antigen
can be false negative or false
positive. When the person is
cultured and the 72-hour test,
which identifies the genetic
material of the HINI Flu, is
completed, it may not be a
definitive case, Gordon ex-
plained.
He calls every physician's
office and clinic in. the county
each Monday and they afe not


reporting much flu activity at
all.
Gordon said he would be glad
to meet anytime with anyone.
who wants to know more. "We
will keep the public updated.
Precautions remain the same:
stay home if sick; call your
medical provider for advice;
practice social distancing (no
hugging, kissing); and wash
your hands as often as possi-
ble."

An 83-year-old lady from North Carolina writes her first letter
to the editor (in this issue).

An environmental leader from Lily writes a letter to the editor
about phosphate mining and land reclamation (in this issue).

Hardee Supervisor of Elections Jeff Ussery reported Monday
the county at last count had 11,958 active registered voters. There
are 6,699 Democrats, 3,821 Republicans and 1,438 "others."

A gun raffle is being held to benefit Wauchula native Rusty
Pearson of Sebring.. He recently underwent surgery for a brain
tumor.
Tickets are $10 each or three for $25 and available at The
Herald-Advocate and Sears in Wauchula. The drawing for a new
S&W .40 caliber handgun with case and two clips will be held at 3
p.m. Sunday at the Wild Turkey Tavern in Sebring.
SDon Bissette is coordinating setting up the Ken Weis
Foundation to aid and assist cancer victims in Hardee County.
There will be help-for doctor appointments, out-of-town travel
expenses and group meetings.
Bissette is assisted by David Conerly. Board members are Dr.
Ross Hendry, Dr. Mark Sevigny, Donna Parks, Linda Smith and
Tessa Graham. Bissette this year coordinated the Hardee County
Duck Race for the American Cancer Society that raised $14,000.
Next year's duck race on Peace River will be for the ken Weis
Foundation, he said.

The Tampa Bay Bucs on Sunday could have used John Sharp
to help implement their defense against the Dallas Cowboys.
Sharp put in a brilliant game plan and the players executed
well Friday night as the Hardee Wildcats defeated Sebring 28-0.
The Blue Streaks had a good passing attack. Sharp put in various
stunts, blitzes and a double team on Sebring's best receiver.
Hardee's special teams were much improved from the 400-
second opener with\Fort Meade. The Wildcats' rushing attack was
outstanding. Hardee will host the Palmetto Tigers this Friday at
7:30,

The new Hardee County public schools budget plans to spend
$54.9 million this coming year. This includes $12.8 million in fed-
eral funds, $23.5 million in state funds and $14.2 million in coun-
ty taxes, plus spending $4.3 million of reserves.
Hardee's school enrollment has not grown much. The number
of full-time equivalent students in 2008-09 was 5,145; in 2003-04,
5,103; and in 1998-99, 5,008.

This past season Florida produced 162.1 million boxes of
oranges, compared withl170.2 million the year before. The state's
production hit the 240-million box mark in the 1992-98 and the
,'2003-04 years.
The official. USDA citrus forecast comes in October. Growers
are hoping for a reduced yield to bring higher prices. Americans
per qapita. drink just under four gallons of orange juice a year.
Consumption needs to increase.
A dentist recently told me the body needs a lot of calciunh

At the HHS football game at Sebring, many fans were being
given small vinyl American flags with a small label - "Made In
China."

The September 2009 issue of CFO magazine reports in 2008
total health-care spending in the U.S. represented 17 percent of
Gross Domestic Product. The health-challenge most commonly
cited by employers in 2008 and 2009 were employee health habits.
CFO reported the market share of generic prescription drugs
by value in the U.S. in 2008 was 55 percent. President Barack
Obama is seeking health care reform.

Many people during recent years borrowed too much money
on their homes, some perhaps buying homes they could not afford.
A lot of this was the lenders' fault for not enforcing strict guidelines
of matching income to mortgage payments.
A number of homebuyers today are losing their homes to mort-
gage foreclosure. Due to various reasons many homes declined in
value in the last year or two.
S An Aug. 14 report in the Lakeland Ledger indicated half the
homebuyers in Polk County have mortgage balances higher than
their home's current value.
Many years ago federal savings and loan associations required
a homebuyer to put up 10 to 20 percent of the home's value as a
;down payment and the monthly mortgage payment could not
exceed about 25 percent of the homebuyer's monthly take-home
pay.
SThe Bible gives some clear warnings about money, saying the
borrower is the servant of the lender. That ieing said most people
expect to borrow money for a home, and the mortgage interest is
tax-deductible. As one old-timer recently said, too many people

Stuart Durastanti Will


Serve On On Commission


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Bowling Green City
Commission will likely keep
the same property tax rate at
1.25 mills, Yvonne Kimball told
commissioners at their monthly
meeting Aug. 11.
The city is expected to gener-
ate-about $30,000 less revenue
from water, sewer and garbage
fees, she said. She also said the
tax rate will bring in a little less
money due to a lower tax value
roll. State revenue sharing will
be less, she said.
Mayor Perry Knight said last
year the city budget got hit hard
with higher fuel prices.
Kimball said the city needs
an accurate budget.
Budget hearings will be held
Sept. 17 at 5:30 and Sept. 28 at
5:30, said the city manager.
City commissioner Randy
Mink said he will serve through
the end of September. A city
election for his unexpired term
was to be held the first Tuesday
in October. Stuart Durastanti


will fill his term.
City attorney Gerald Buhr
said he is in his 10th year with
the city.
City Clerk Pam Northup said
she will convert some- funds
from checking accounts to cer-
tificates of deposit at Wauchula
State Bank so the city can earn
more interest: The city's interest
rate on checking accounts had
dropped to 0.37 percent and a
'13-month CD will get 1.80 per,
cent. Expiring CD rates were
3.0 and 4.65 percent.
Police Chief John Scheel said
his department has seven
employees counting himself.
"In the Bobby Brown era
there were eight officers and
three part-time officers," said
Scheel.
The commission discussed
but reached no decision on hir-
ing an extra officer as part of an
area drug task force. The salary
the first year would be paid by a
federal grant but the city would
be obligated to continue the
position into the future.

Find The Right


Golf Clubs


Golf is a game of subtleties.
A slight rotation during a swing
of a degree or two can mean the
difference between hitting the
green and landing in the-bunker.
Those same subtleties are no
more apparent than.in a set of
golf clubs.
With continued advance-
ments in club technology, it is'
possible to see a difference in
your game as a result of new
clubs, whether you desire in-
creased power, accuracy or for-
giveness. But if there are flaws
in your swing, new clubs will
not make them disappear. Clubs
can only improve on what's
already there.
You don't have to go out and
purchase the most expensive set
of clubs - concentrate on get-
ting the right set.
Selecting golf clubs that are
the correct size is the first step.
Unless you stand over 6 feet
or under 5 feet, standard-size
clubs should be correct for most
men and women. Men's clubs
are generally 1 inch taller per
club.
The shaft is the next essential
consideration. Today's shafts
are usually composed of steel or
graphite. Steel shafts are more
durable and generally less
expensive than graphite. They
offer more control but require a
faster swing to generate dis-
tance. Graphite is popular be-
cause of its light feel. However,
ball control is sacrificed by the
increased power generated from
the swing. Shaft stiffness is also
a factor. You will find a range of
flexibility, from extra-stiff to
shafts for seniors with more
"bend" to them. Beginners and


players with less powerful
swings will find a flexible shaft
more effective, while players
with powerful swings will gain
more control with a stiffer club
shaft.
Loft is another term you will
come across in your search. It
refers to the height the ball will
achieve in flight. Inexperienced
plays are generally encour-
aged % choose clubs with more
loft as.they are more forgiving
on less accurate swings.
Driver designs have recently
reached the United States Golf
Association's (USGA) limits for
size and length. In the case of
such drivers, bigger seems to be
better. A bigger club head gen-
erates more speed through the
swing and can offer a larger
sweet spot and more forgive-
ness.
Irons also offer a variety of
styles and options, broken
down first into two categories:,
cast irons or forged irons. Cast
iron heads are recommended
for beginners. They provide a
larger sweet spot and are more
forgiving on accuracy. Forged
irons feature a head with a flat,
weighted back. This higher cen-
ter of gravity (CG) means a
more concentrated sweet spot
and more control for experi-
enced players.
If you're in the market for
,new clubs, remember that!
what's right for one player may
not be right for another. Club
fitting with the help of a profes-
sional is a good place tostart. A
pro will analyze every facet of
your game and help you deter-
mine which equipment is right
for you.


Q: Are breakfast sand-
wiches pretty much the same
nutritionally, or are some
healthier than others?
A: Breakfast sandwiches,
made famous by fast food
restaurants, but now available
in other restaurants and in gro-
cery store freezers to micro-
wave at home, do vary in calo-
ries, fat and sodium.
To get the long-lasting ener-
gy and fullness these sandwich-
es can offer while maintaining,
your waistline and health,
choose sandwiches made with,
English muffins, toast or tor-
tillas instead of biscuits. They
are usually at least 100 calories
lighter and allow you to skip
about a third of a day's limit on i
the saturated fat in a biscuit.
Sausage, bacon and ham are
processed meats best kept to
occasional use only due to their
link with colorectal cancer risk.
Sausage, especially, adds a sub-


stantial calorie and saturated fat
toll, too.
.If you're making the sand-
wich at home or ordering from |
a place where you can add some
tomatoes and peppers to the
egg, that's a top option! Even if
you choose an egg and cheese
sandwich (in the smaller size if
that's a choice), you can proba-
bly get the sandwich for 300 to
380 calories. That leaves room
to include a piece of fruit, either
from a restaurant or home, to ,
deliver a balanced breakfast
within the 400 to 425 calorie
limit that best meets the needs
of most adults. And while you
may feel like it's a calorie
splurge, it's the same or less
than you'd get from one of
,those jumbo muffins that's
nothing but refined grain, six or
seven teaspoons of sugar anqd
often still a significant load of
fat.

Letter To The Editor

America's F

Trying To F
Dear Editor:
This is my first attempt to
write a "letter to the editor." I
am so tired of all the criticism
of the President for trying to
correct failed systems - health
care, economy and unemploy-
ment.
* First, the economy - Yes,
money does trickle down! Our
manufacturing jobs are being
outsourced to other countries
(cheap labor)! We are left with
unemployment - 10 percent
expected before year's end! So
far the only one talking about
creating jobs in the USA is our
President.
I would suggest that all levels
of government, - federal,
state, county and city - stop
outsourcing jobs requiring ver-
bal skills. I don't want to talk to
* someone in India or China, etc.
(with limited English) telling
me how to solve problems. I
cannot, understand them and
they certainly don't understand
me!
In addition to our govern-
ment, perhaps our unions and
companies could work out a
method of competing world-
wile. They are not adversaries,
are they? We certainly build
better products, but we have to
be competitive cost-wise. Yes,
developing countries need a
chance, but we have to be real-
istic and compete not only in
the USA but world-wide.
We have the best, most well-
trained labor force in the world.
Let's use it to our advantage and
get back in the game!
SSecond, construction -
Let's be honest, outright fraud
was committed in granting
loans - no money down -
balloon payments - later, falsi-
fied income - the borrower
had no chance. It was the seller
not the buyer who should get
the most criticism. Yet, it seems
that companies dreaming up
these schemes, not the buyer,
are being rewarded.
You cannot buy if you do not
have an income! We now know
that credit cards are not the
answer - they just prolong the
agony!
While we are at it, maybe
solving the guest worker/illegal
immigrant problem would be a
help! Illegal immigrants fill
jobs desperately needed by our
unemployed!
* Third, health care - The
President is right, health care is
broken. Pharmaceuticals are too
costly for the average citizen.
How much does TV advertising
(my brand of vs. yours) add to
the cost of drugs? Prescribed'
medications/treatments are fre-
quently denied by health insur-

President Is

ix Problems
ers as being "experimental" or
for "pre-existing conditions."
Citizens living near Canada
or Mexico frequently cross the
borders to buy prescription
drugs by the same companies
that serve us but at a lower
price. Many citizens go over-
seas for less expensive surgery.
Why? Approximately one-third
of bank foreclosures on loans to
individuals for their homes are
a result of high medical costs.
Eliminating fraud in Medi-
care should be a priority!
Now, that's a cost saver for you!
Like everyone else I, too,
believe the President's health
care proposal needs help.
Everyone gets medical care as
outpatients in most hospitals
and inpatient care if necessary.
But at what cost? If the patient
cannot or does not pay, then you
and I pick up the tab. Hence, the
cost of our health care contin-
ues to rise and so does our out-
of-pocket expense and insur-
ance premiums.
Hospitals are not charities!
They operate on the revenue
they generate!
I think back to the 1930s,
when electricity was available
only in metropolitan areas -
utility companies found it not
profitable to serve rural areas.
Congress solved this problem
by instituting the Rural
Electrification Administration
.program. Now REA and utility
companies exist side by side,
and there does not seem to be a
conflict. Everyone benefits.
Couldn't a similar program
be developed for health care?
For the last 30 years health care
has been a political football! A
subject for debate at every elec-
tion. We, the public, need more
that partisan politics. We need
action, not promises!
I could go on and on - 10
percent unemployment is immi-
nent, health care and other
problems are pressing. None
will be solved by political
infighting.
I believe this country, under
God, can move mountains if the
three branches of government
work together to solve our
problems.

t Letter To The Editor


'O'er The Land Of The Free


SAnd The Home Of The Brave'


:Dear Editor:
Eight years have come and
Gone since that bright blue
September morning in New
York City. The morning we
became aware as a nation that
there are people out there con-
sumed with hatred for America
and dur way of life.
Prior to Sept. 11, the last line
of our National Anthem had
Deteriorated into the applause
line prior to our sporting events.
SMany times you could not even
Clearly recognize the last phrase
Sas cheers, whistles and applause
: all but drowned out these few
,words.
SToday, things ate much dif-
Sferent.
S There is, even after eight,
Years have passed, a solemnity
attached to these words. I am
* sure the author of "The Star-'
, Spangled Banner," Francis.,
'Scott Key, could have never'
imagined the absolute horror of
, ;9-11. But these last few words
Shave become a tribute to those
, ho stand in harm's way for us.
S As such. it galvanizes some-
thing inside, of us every time
these words pass our lips: Our


desire to make sure those who
died horribly that day in New
York City, at the Pentagon and
in a field near Shanksburg, Pa.,
that this nation shall not
become the prisoner of terror-
ists:
Those were Americans who
died in New York City, those
were soldiers in the Pentagon,
and those were brave patriots'
Aboard that plane who thwarted
the plans of terrorists.
And so, whenever I am at a
sporting event and hear the
National Anthem begin being
played, I have come to terms
with the fact that I will probably
fog up and have to wipe a tear
from my eye when it reaches
that last' line. I notice many
, experiencing the same.
-,And today, that last line is
heard almost abole ever\ other
.line, loud and clear! .
There are four verses to our
National Anthem. I am sure
most are not aware of that fact.
The fourth verse reads:
"Oh, thus be it ever when free
men shall stand/
Between their loved homes
and the war's desolation/


Blest with victory and peace,
may heav'n-rescued land/
Praise the Power that hath
made and preserved us a
nation!/
Then conquer we must, when
our cause it is just/
And this be our motto: "In
God is our trust!"/
And the star spangled banner
in triumph shall wave/
O'er the land of the free and
the home of the brave."
Is every American a Christ-
ian? No. Is every Christian an
American? No. But I am glad to
live in a land where free people
have the right to life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness!
So, the next time you hear the
National Anthem begin, take
your hat off. square your shoul-
ders,, stand tall, put your hand
over, your heart, 'and sing loud
with a tear in your eye as we
always remember 9-11.
.We all w.ill. until the day we
die.

Management District land man-
agers plan to hold a series of
hog hunts on District land this
fall and winter to help reduce
-the wild hog population.
Beginning at 9 a.m. on Oct.
12, prospective hunters can pur-
chase permits for these hunts on
the District's web site at
WaterMatters.org/hoghunts/.
SPermits will be available on a
. first-come. first-served basis
Through 5 p.m. on Oct. 26, or.
u until they are sold out. The cost


is $50 for each permit.
Wild hogs, which are not
native to Florida, feed by root-
.ing with their broad snouts and
can leave an area looking like a
plowed field.
The District allows hogs to be
controlled through hunts when
the damage they cause is at
unacceptable levels. Damage
from hogs is occurring more
frequently and with increasing
severity.
The District-managed prop-
erties will be temporarily closed


to the public during the hog
hunts. Only permitted hunters
will be allowed access.
In addition to obtaining a per-
mit online, maps and hunting
rules of the areas where the
hunts will take place are avail-
able onr the District's web site.
This is the second consecu-
tive year for the hunts. Last
year's hunts removed hundreds
of hogs from seven different
tracts of land throughout the
District.

JV Wildcats Whip Panthers 36-16


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a dismal first half, the
Hardee Junior Wildcats came
back with a strong second-half
effort to win last week's game
against Mulberry.
Tonight (Thursday), the
young 'Cats take on the Sebring
Junior Streaks on their turf.
Next week, it's a trip to Fort
Meade. The Junior 'Cats come
home to greet Frostproof on
Oct. 1.
"We weren't playing on all
four cylinders in the first half,
one miscue after.another. If the
line blocked well, the backfield
was offsides. If the backfield
was O.K., it was the line. We
had a horrible practice on
Wednesday and it showed, with
bad snaps, .missed blocks,
missed assignments," said a
frustrated Head Coach Rod
,Smith.


"We eliminated some of the
mistakes of the first half and
came back to win 36-16. Travis
Britt and Octavio Alvarez had
interceptions. Caleb Abbott and
Murrell Winter had fumble
recoveries. Vince Grimlsey had
a big tackle on the quarterback
and Monte, Carlton had a nice
pass breakup. Cornerback Mi-
guel Garcia made a big hit to
save a long run late in the third
quarter," added Smith.
Down 8-6 at the half, Hardee
got its offense going in the sec-
ond half. In all, sophomore
quarterback Colby Baker went
two-for-four on passing for 60
yards. Tyshan Hilliard grabbed
one and Carter Lambert got the
other. ,
Grimsley led the ground
attack, with a pair of five-yard
touchdowns, one for two yards
and a two-point conversion.
Ullyses Taylor scored on a 11-


yard run, Hillard on a five-
yarder and Baker on a two-
point conversion. Alvaiez
made a pair of PAT kicks.
In all, Carlton had nine car-
ries for 48 yards, Baker, seven
for 48, Carlton four tor 24,:
Michael Pilkington four for 18,
Hillard two for eight and Taylor
20 for 185.
In on the tackle parade were
Dillon Skitka, Joshua Fowler,
Grimsley, Pilkington, Taylor,
Carlton, Garcia, Britt, Dylan
Farr, Winter, Lambert, Justin
Knight, Dillard Albritton, D.J.
Chapa and Uvaldo Sanchez.
"We simply need more of the
players to step up in practice
and the games, to pay attention
to their position coaches, so we
can trust to put t hem in the
game in a pressure situation. I
won't put in a player who is not
ready to play and risk him get-
ting hurt," said Smith.

Oct. 13 vs. Hill-Gustat, and

tem. So, it's a good mix and we
expect to be competitive," said
Carlton, whose team went 5-1
last year and won the confer-
ence.
Quarterback Luke Palmer
will be back with Keyon Brown
as running back, Garrett Al-
britton as tight end and Kris
Johnson in the slot. Other

Sports Update
By Joan Seaman


First note of interest is to remind everyone that they can now
get Hardee High sports information by going to the website
C2CSchools.com and entering the school, name mascot Wildcats,
city and state. Then, choose the sport you are interested and follow
the links to the team page, rosters, schedules which include maps
With directions to the events, and coverage on events which already
have happened.
- You can also enter the opponents' schools to find out more
about them, what is their won/loss record etc.

Hardee football is doing well, ousting Sebring 28-0 in a rain-
delayed game last Friday. We will never know how the game
against Fort Meade would have turned out as it was about the mid-
dle of the. first quarter when the lightning cancelled the game.
Hardee won the preseason opener against Lake Placid.
There are back-to-back home games, this week vs. Palmetto,
next week vs. Frostproof.

JV Football is 2-0 after beating both Avon Park and Mulberry
at home. The JV 'Cats take their show on the road today (Thurs-
day) in a visit to Sebring. Next week, it is a trip to Fort Meade.

Junior high football opens its season at Sebring next Tuesday at
5:30. As defending Heartland Conference champions, the junior
high 'Cats are the team to beat in the Heartland this season. They
will play against Lake Placid twice (they always play one of the
teams twice each year). This year, both will be home
i Lake Placid, as Hardee has traveled over there sev-

it to be a banner year for Hardee, with good pitching from karlee ..
Henderson and Alex Ullrich to anchor the junior Lady 'Cats.


The golf girls are on a bit of a hiatus, but the boys are doing
well, despite a mild loss by one stroke at Avon Park. They came
back to.be the best of four teams in the Lake Wales quad-meet last
Thursday. Unfortunately, they may have lost soph Dalton Hewett to
a freak accident. He was hit in the elbow by an errant ball and suf-
fered a cracked elbow, which will sideline him for quite a while.

We have been unable to get swim team results from last week
as they have not been sent to Coach Jan Brutus, the girls team is'
shorthanded and the boys team is doing well.

Cross Country started at home Tuesday, with a run at Pioneeri
Park at 4:30. We're not sure which teams will show up as oppo-
nents as some are still finalizing their schedules.

Women's Church League finished up over the last month
between showers. First Methodist of Wauchula won the season I
title, with First Christian taking the p6st-season tournament title.

Youth football battled showers and flu on Saturday. Of the
games that got played, the Junior Peewee Team outlasted the
Manatee Storm for a 7-6 win and remained undefeated. The Midget
team was outscored in a rainy slugfest and is no longer among the
unbeaten. The teams are at home this weekend, with games set to
begin at 9 a.m.

Mountain Moment
By Karla Patarini
^II


BE STILL
Carrying little Brownie in my arms, I exited the west wing of
the Big House as quietly as possible, fearful of waking those who
were in much need of a good night's rest.
After spending the night tossing to and fro, troubled over the
worries of this world, my bones ached with exhaustion, my spirit
was disheartened, and my mind and soul were both weary beyond
measure. As the door closed quietly behind me the fresh morning
dew gently caressed my cheeks - as if giving me the first kiss of
the new day - bringing a renewed sense of energy to my aching
bones and troubled spirit.
The crunch of the gravel underneath my feet seemed much too
loud in the quiet of the morning, so I paused and took a deep breath
of cool mountain air, surveying the lush green of the land that lay.
before me. The majestic maple trees that lined the long graveled
path leading to the Big House stood proud and tall like silent pro-
tective soldiers and gave a startling contrast to the small orchard of
fruit trees that, even though appearing green and vibrant, lay bar-
ren due to the past winter's frigid temperatures.
It was there, underneath the canopy of the'orchard trees, where
I first caught sight of the small doe.
, With its large dark brown eyes ard cautious ears, this graceful
creature stood silent as its gentle gaze rested on the two intruders
who dared to disturb her early morning grazing. To my amazement:
she did not appear frightened, by the appearance of the two
strangers, but instead stood poised and curious as if pondering
whether she should invite the pair to partake of her early morning
feast.
So there the three of us stood - a small five-pound Shih-Tzu,
a weary school teacher and a beautiful doe - each standing still
and silent as if waiting for a signal to continue on our morning jour-
ney.
Alas, it was the doe that unexpectedly made the first move, not
darting fearfully across the meadow as one would have predicted,
but instead simply choosing to stay where she had found the sweet-
est nourishment, secure in her faith that she was safe from all dan-'
ger.
As Brownie and I continued on our way, those dark brown
eyes occasionally turned in our direction, but as her eyes met mine,
it seemed as if she smiled graciously, thankful for the opportunity
to feel at peace in her surroundings.
Thus, it was with a renewed sense of peace and comfort that I
prayed my first prayer of the day. "Oh Lord, teach me to be still
like the deer who stands silent and watchful, resting in Your
promise that we are safe and secure from all alarm in a world filled
with ever-present danger.".
Psalm 18:30(b), 32-33 tells us, "He is a shield to all who trust
in Him. It is God who arms me with strength, and makes my way
perfect. He makes my feet like the feet of deer and sets me on my
high places."
Isn't it amazing how God can use the most simple things in life
to stir an awakening even in the most tired and weary of souls as
He reminds us of His assurance that He guides and protects those
who trust in Him?



Letter To The Editor

CF Proposes More 'Useless'

Mine Pits In Hardee.County


Dear Editor;
It's interesting to note that
less than a month after their
most recent annual review CF
Industries has applied to the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP) for a
"variance" from their original
reclamation plan for the South
Pasture Mine.
A variance is a. device by,
which phosphate mines can
deviate from their obligations
with the state as defined in their
official reclamation or mining
plan. Unlike previous aspects of
'the mining review process vari-
ances are not subject to public
hearings. Notices of variance
are sent to interested parties by
DEP for comment, and 15 days
are allowed to prepare objec-
tions or request an extension.
DEP ,ariances and modifica-
tions of original permit agree-
ments are typical of how phos-
phate mining projects devolve
from their original standards
outside of the public eye. A rash
of these variances and modifi-
cations has passed over my
desk in the past year at a rate
which is almost impossible to
keep up with.
In a letter to The Herald-
Advocate of May 14, I pointed
out that according to the 2007
state reclamation report CF
Industries had reclaimed for
-release only 14 percent of their
mines at the same time that they
are applying for a permit to
strip mine another 7,500 acres
in Hardee County.
In his rebuttal, Mr. Ghent, CF
Industries' Director of Com-
*munity Affairs for Phosphate
Operations, extolled his compa-
ny's reclamation record and
compliance with obligations.
Mr. Ghent stated: "High
quality reclamation requires
dedicated people, good science,
major expenditures of money
and time for natural systems to
grow and develop."
However, in their request for
variance CF Industries admits:
"In the process of mining the
South Pasture Mine, there will
be a deficit of fill material that
will lead to the creation of 15
lakes (sic. A mine pit is not a
'lake.') within the mine bound-
ary. There is no other means to
fill these voids except for creat-
ing lakes (sic). Obtaining fill
'material from adjacent areas
within the mine property would
result in creating lakes else-
i where on the property; and
hauling what would constitute a


substantial amount of fill mate-
rial from outside the mine prop-
erty would be cost prohibitive,
while creating other serious
practicable, logistical, and eco-
nomic issues."
The document goes on to say
that Hardee County would be
better off with these mine pits
because they would provide
"increased recreational oppor-
tunities, desirable building sites
for residences and commercial
buildings . . .and increase bio-
diversity through expanding
available landforms for use by
wildlife."
In other words the county
would be better off without the
"high quality reclamation" that
Mr. Ghent extolled in 'his
answer to my letter above.
To anyone who is paying
attention to these matters it be-
comes abundantly clear that
there is always a "deficit of fill
material" in reclaiming phos-
phate mines. After they've built
all their slime pits, saturated
clay with water, and removed
the phosphate ore, there is never
enough material to fill all the
mine pits somewhere on the
site, so the county and the pub-
lic are left with abandoned pits
which are sanctioned by the
regulatory agencies and called
"lakes."
How these pits can be con-
strued as "increasing biodiver-
sity" is beyond belief, since in
the DEP's own reports (Peace
River Cumulative Impact Study
2007) it is considered scientifi-
cally proven that water trapped
in mine pits without proper dis-
solved oxygen contributes to
the decline of the regional
watershed.
The county needs to pull the
wool from their eyes and begin'
to comprehend the harsh reality
of this Pollyanna vision of
phosphate mining.
The present generation of
commissioners and business-
men in this community are
essentially selling the future of
this county for a handful of
coins by accepting the misrep-
resentations of the phosphate
industry about their ability to
reclaim in any meaningful way
the environmental (and thereby
"economic") destruction they
will leave in their wake.

LOSING A LOVED ONE
Q: Last yeat I went through one of the hardest times of my
life. I lost someone very dear to me. Just when everything was
going good in my life, tragedy hit I have battled the whole
thing in mind for a year now. This question has been consum-
ing my thoughts: Why did God take someone so precious from
me? Doesn't God love me?
Signed, Still Hurting

A: God's ways are higher than our ways. Sometimes He never
reveals His reason for allowing things to happen. But, we have to
trust His plan and know that He loves us.
All good things come from God above. He does not create bad
- things to happen to us. But, when tragic thingsdo come, He never
leaves you to.go through them alone. He is ever present, ever near.
Even when you feel like He has forsaken you, rest assured He is
right there by your side.
God becomes the number one person most people want to
blame for their problems. They think because He has the power to
stop things that He is at fault. But the truth is, we love our children,
too, but sometimes we cannot stop bad things from happening to
them. The only thing we can do is comfort them afterward.
God never leaves us or forsakes us. He is always with us, even
when the world seems to be falling apart around us. Sometimes we
Sdo not feel Him except with our eyes of faith. This is when we learn
to trust our Father the greatest and we learn to lean upon Him; this
is when we are held by the Creator of the world.
Last year my family went through a horrible ordeal as well.
My daughter and I went into labor with our babies at the same time.
Both were little girls. Because her baby was early, my daughter's
infant only lived a short while.
Everyone involved suffered a great loss. I felt like my heart
was being ripped out. One of my daughters had just been given life
while another had been given death. How do you rejoice over one
baby, while grieving the loss of another?
It was overwhelming, dealing with all of these emotions at one
time.
I had a million questions for God, and I needed answers.
Sometimes there are no answers and we have to just trust Him and
His plan for our lives.
I decided to use the whole tragedy for the good of God's
Kingdom. We cannot change the situation, but we can change the
way we perceive it. It is my prayer that this story will help you cope
with your own loss and help you move closer into the arms of God
instead of pushing Him away.
When I pray now, I can see God holding my grandbaby. This
makes me want to seek Him even more, pursue Him with a greater
passion. I refuse to give up until I see Him face-to- face. Not just
because I love Him, but because He loves me:
One day we will stand before the Lord and He will give us our,
loved ones back to enjoy forever and ever. This is where we should
be comforted; knowing that one day we will reunite with our loved
ones. This life is bound by time, but in heaven there will be no end.
In this life we have pain but in heaven there are no tears.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Daytime highs for the week were in the upper 80s and low 90s.
Lows were in the mid-60s at most locations across the Panhandle
and northern Florida. The central and southern Peninsula reported
lows mostly in the 70s. Rainfall was reported at all Florida
Automated Weather Network (FAWN) locations. Counties across
central Florida received the heaviest rainfall during the week with
amounts between three to four inches common. South Florida loca-
tions reported precipitation generally in the two to three inches
range. Osceola, Desoto, and Hillsborough counties reported 4.86,
4.50, and 4.32 inches, respectively.

FIELD CROPS
Peanut harvesting was reported as 20 percent complete corn-
pared to 7 percent last year and a five year average of 9 percent.
Peanut condition was rated 18 percent fair, 61 percent good, and 21",
percent excellent. Cotton bolls continue to open but picking has not
started. Soybeans benefitted from continued showers and were in
good condition, although significant worm pressure has beeh;
reported. Corn for grain harvest was nearing completion and yields,
were reported as very good. Drying in some areas has accelerated:
haying and yields were above average but quality was below nor-
mal, Preparations are underway for fall and winter forage crops as
Summer crops are completed.

VEGETABLES
In southwest Florida, growers prepared ground and laid plas-
tic in the beginning of the week trying to get back on schedule,
Mid-week precipitation caused more delays. Wet conditions were'
causing some disease problems. Farmers'have been running throw-
out pumps to remove standing water and spraying to control pests
and disease. In Colombia County harvesting of cucumbers was
complete. Eggplant, sweet corn, and tomatoes were doing well.
Snap beans in Levy County were well established and looking.
good. Growers in Putnam County were preparing to plant cabbage
and beets. Okra, avocados, and some truck crops were marketed.

LIVESTOCK AND PASTURES.
In the Panhandle and northern areas, pasture was in fair to
good condition with most in good condition. Land preparation for
seeding winter forage continued and was aided by showers. The
condition of cattle ranged from fair to excellent. In the central"
areas, pasture was poor to excellent with armyworms causing some:
damage. Pasture and rangeland suffered from nutrient loss from
excessive rainfall. In the southwest areas, range condition varied'
from poor to excellent, Many pastures were flooded or have stand-
ing water from previous or recent rain. However, pasture condition
in other locations had poor condition due to low soil moisture'.
Cattle condition was poor to excellent with most in good condition.
Statewide, most cattle were in good condition.

CITRUS
Citrus growing areas along the West Coast and some inland
areas had pouring rain over the weekend; other areas had lighter
rain showers. Arcadia and Balm received the most rainfall at over
four inches. Lake Alfred followed with just over three inches. Trees
continued to look good due to the rain and long days of sunshine
with limbs flushing out new growth and fruit in good condition.
New crop fruit was sizing well with little evidence of off or late
bloom. Grove practices included herbiciding, mowing in prepara-
tion for harvest, fertilizing, spraying, and young tree care. Grove
caretakers continued to survey groves for greening, treated trees for
citrus psyllid, and removed already infected trees.

BE A CHILD
Jesus said, "Except you become like a little child, you will not
enter the kingdom of heaven."
What is this rare quality that children have, and can adults real-
ly achieve it when they are 30, 50, 70 years of age. Here are five
clues you can pick up by watching little ones:
1.) My daddy can do anything - The modern evangelical
church is more conscious of the power of sin than of the power of
God to deal with it! Strange to say, many people believe it is impos-
sible for ordinary folks to live a godly life. However, a life of cru-
elty and selfishness is readily understood and accepted.
We laugh at the tremendous confidence kids have in their dads.
God calls it faith.
2.) I can do what daddy does - I remember when one of my
children crawled over into my lap so he could grip the wheel and
"drive" our car up the lane. He was thrilled.
Do we realize that our Heavenly Father wants us to do His
works for Him and with Him on earth? He delights to see us taking
responsibility for those in need, and love them as He does.
3.) One day at a time - Most adults live in the past and the
future. Jesus wants us all to live in the present, like the birds of the
aiy, the fish in the sea and the lilies in the fields.
Kids relish the present moment. It's where the joy is!
4.) Lean not to thine own understanding - There are so many
things little children do not know that they are forever asking ques-
tions.
Have we adults adopted the same eagerness to learn? Do we
pray for guidance and wisdom in the jobs we manage? Do we real-
ly believe that God's assistance is close at hand?
5.) Reckless confidence - Ever seen a little child jump into a
family pool and the waiting arms of a father? That may be a small
act for an adult, but it takes courage and faith for a little child to do
it. Our Lord wants all of us to trust Him in life's "jumping off'
places!

Youth Football
By Paul Paris
Hardee Youth Football was scheduled to play the North
Manatee Storm last Saturday. Due to flooding and road closures all
of the morning games were canceled. The competitive teams; Jr.
Pee Wee, Pee Wee, and Midget were rescheduled for the afternoon,
but due to multiple players being ill, Pee Wee was not able to play.
Jr. Pee Wee took to a very spongy field at 4 p.m. with sprinkles
of rain on and off. The Wildcat defense scored the only touchdown
and the extra point conversion was good, making it 7-0 at the half.
The Storm responded in the second half with a touchdown, but the
Wildcats spoiled the extra point attempt. The final score was 7-6
and the Jr. Pee Wee team remains undefeated.
At 6 p.m. the Midget team took a muddy field just in time for
the Storm to bring the rain. The rain continued the entire game.
The Wildcats held the Storm back in the first half but, in the sec-
ond half, the Storm scored three unanswered touchdowns to win
20-0.
Saturday, Sept. 19, HYFL is back at home, with games start-
ing at 9 a.m., weather permitting.
Hardee 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.

I WayBackWhenmI


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
An unusual amount of build-
ing recalls the boom days build-
ing program. More than a score
of homes and businesses in the
city and county are being
remodeled or repaired. Several
are getting new tin or shingle
roofs.

The final opportunity to
apply for seed loans to aid in
financing fall and winter crops.
is Friday. Farmers 'who'think
they will be unable to carry out
during the ensuing months, in
putting out crops without aid
are urged to apply. A consider-
able number have already
applied.

SA shortage of livestock feed
throughout the U.S. will afford
Florida farmers to sell hay and
grains over and above their own
needs. Saving every bit of
usable feed material now is also
a patriotic duty on the parl of
our farmers. They are encour-
aged to plant corn for fodder,
oats, rye and other winter graz-
ing :crops to sustain cattle,
sheep, hogs and work animals..

J.W. Earnest & .Co. intro-
duces its fall line of fashion in


dresses, coats and suits, from
$7.95 to $10.95 and $17.95.
Complimenting accessories
include crushed and rough
leather pumps, ties, gloves,
bags, scarfs, holeproof hosiery
and new fall shades in handker-
chiefs.
50 YEARS AGO
Heavy rains Wednesday,
nearly five inches in 24 hours,
have made nearly a fourth of
Hardee County graded roads
impassable. Road superinten-
dent Levy North listed about a
dozen major roads which are
stranded to traffic, stranding
residents and snarling school
bus transportation. The down-
pours have sent Peace River
over its banks at several points
and it is still rising. It will prob-
ably reach its highest point in
years.

A proposed utility tax for
Zolfo Springs, revised for com-
mercial users, will go into effect
in November, if it survives two
more council meetings. It pro-
vides for a 10 percent tax on the
first $10 of utility bill, then one
percent thereafter. It applies to
water, electricity, gas and each
month's line rent for tele-
phones.

The Board of Public Instruc-
tion has adopted a firm policy
on assignment of students to
J' public 'schools, based on the
population of the schools.

About 50 students have been
shifted from Wauchula to Bowl-

amid the cries of outraged par-
ents. The board also reversed on
a 3-2 vote its last week decision
and will allow a student to enter
school in the second grace:.

,Davis Radio '& TV has spe-
cial anniversary sales on new
TVs, 17-inch for $140, 21-inch
for $159.95 and 24-inch for
$179.95. New table radios are
$11.95 and the five-tube model
$15.95. A three-speed record
player is $14.95 and includes a
four-speed changer and two
speakers.
25 YEARS AGO
The County Commission last
Thursday made a rough guessti-
mate that it would cost about
$75,000 to provide garbage
Dumpsters and pickup around
the county. This is based on 16
general areas where one- to
four-cubic-foot Dumpsters
would be placed. After the start-
up costs, it is estimated it would
cost $35,000 to $40,000 annual-
ly to continue the pickup ser-
vice.

At Thursday's meeting of the
Bowling Green Businessmen's
Club, Farm Bureau President
Doyle Parker said the 1984
Legislature "has pushed the
four-laning of U.S. 17 up four
years." The Legislature ap-
proved $700,000 for design of
the four-laning project. "We
will get right-of-way money in
the next Legislature," said
Parker

The annual College Day will
be held Monday at.the Agri-
Civic Center, with representa-
tives of over 60 colleges and
universities. Information on

Plan ahead also for the feast
of St. Michael on Sept. 27.
Mass is at 2 p.m. 'aV'tSt.
Michael's for all parishioners of
San Alfonso, Holy Child and St.
Michael's, and is followed by a
fiesta, the feast of St. Michael,
honoring the patron saint.

(She ended,up as third runner-
up.)
Telephone customers in
Hardee County have a new.
areas code - again. It's the
third area code for Hardee in
five years. A split of the con-
gested 941 area code gave
Hardee and six other counties
the new 863 area code, which
began Monday. Callers will
have eight months to make the
changeover, which will be
mandatory by May 22, 2000.

County commissioners ex-
pect a jam-packed room next
Thursday for the 2:30 p.m.
meeting on the widening of
U.S. 17. State Department of.
Transportation officials will
come and explain the status of
planning for U.S. 17. At pre-
sent, the first phase of construc-
tion for CR 663, also known as

Greetings from Fort Green!
Our community was truly
saddened when we learned of
the final journey for our neigh-
bor and friend, Ronald Waters.
Ronald was raised in the Fort
Green Baptist Church and was
childhood 'friends with all the
boys from this area. Ronald has
lived his entire life in Fort
SGreen. Sincere sympathy is
extended to all the family.
Rhonda's husband is a coach
and sometimes 1his takes them
to Germany. Well, when her
grandpa, Dewey, made his final
journey, Rhonda was in Germ-
Sany and not able to come home.
Her dad made his final journey,
and where is she? Germany
Again! As of this writing, she is
Son the way home. Will said he
Didn't want her to go to Germ-
Sany anymore!
Carol and Johnny Brown
were DeFuniak visitors this past
week. Johnmark celebrated a
birthday, and these are more
special, with your parents pre-
sent. It is important to be with
family as much as possible.

she could bring in the ladder.
When she asked whatever for,
he said so he could climb it

at Hazel's years ago. They real-
ly enjoyed visiting and remi-

Anyone with guavas this year
can consider themselves fortu-
nate. Robert Abbott was one of
the lucky ones and, being a
good neighbor, he offered them
to Faye Davis, who makes the
best marmalade. She and
Randy picked them on a Tues-
day night, were busy at church
Wednesday night and then
Thursday night she went to her
storage shed to get the jars and
got her foot hung up, fell and
broke her ankle. She is in a cast
. She wanted to make the mar-
malade for our visiting evange-
list, Randy Perry. He first tast-
ed guava marmalade last year
and could have been born in
Florida, the way he took to it.
Sherman and I went to Mont-
gomery, Ala., Labor Day week-
end. I have three first cousins
left on my daddy's side and last
year we got together in North
Georgia, this year in Mont-
gomery and next year if they
are all still living, they want to
come to Florida! It was cool in
Montgomery, and as we passed
through a small portion of
Georgia, the gas was $2.27 a
gallon. We think that is cheap,
but I grew up in the '50s, where
you could get a dollar's worth
which was a little over three
gallons and someone would
pump it for you! You never
know how good it is until it's
gone!
Remember to pray for our
country and each other.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee boys golf team
lost last Tuesday and won
Thursday but ended the week 3-
1 because the Thursday outing
was a quad-match.
This week, the boys went
back to Lake Wales to play
Lake Wales on Tuesday. Today
(Thursday), they are at home
for a match against Lake Placid.
Next week, it is a Monday
trip to Sebring for the daylong
Hawkins Invitational. The next
match is Sept. 29 at home
against Frostproof.
Hardee girls were quiet this
week and do not resume action
until Sept. 24, when they travel
to Lake Wales to play against
Frostproof.
In the boys first match last
week, they went to the Pinecrest
course to take on Avon Park in a
thriller. The Red Devils skinned
the Wildcats 177 to 178.


Sophomore Daniel Miller led
the Hardee contingent with a
39, which included a birdie.
Senior Grayson Lambert fol-
lowed with 45. Junior Taylor
Barlow and freshman Will "Cu-
ban sub" Beattie both has 47s.
Freshman Will Bennett, junior
Lincoln Saunders and freshman
Bryson White following along.
"Some of the guys are strug-
gling with their swings at the
moment, but they will come
around shortly," said Coach
George Heine.
It was different at the Lake
Wales Country Club last Thurs-
day, where Hardee won a quad-
match by a hefty amount. All
the scores were quite high.
Hardee finished with a team
score of 183, while Ridge
Community had 206, Winter
Haven 207 and Frostproof 208.
"We won with 'ugly' shoot-
ing 183, which is about 20
strokes higher than we should


be. It is still early in the season,
so as we move forward, im-
provement should follow,"
commented Heine.
Only one player from Ridge
scored lower than Hardee's top
two golfers, coming around the
course in 40. For the Wildcats,
it was Miller leading again,
with a 42 and a birdie. Junior
Justin Bromley finished with
45. "He had it going early, but
stubbed his toe coming' home,"
said Heine.
Saunders was next with 47.
"He is playing good, but'just
needs to avoid the one bad
home," added Heine.
Bennett had a 49 in gaining
good experience and White also
had 49. Soph Dalton Hewett
rounded out the scoring with
54, but was hit on the elbow
with a wayward shot. It later
turned out to be a cracked
elbow and he will be lost for the
season.


Letter To The Editor


Reward Offered For Lost Dog


Dear Editor:
Kyle was 6 and Sally was a
puppy the Christmas I tied the
ribbon around her neck and put
her under the Christmas tree.
Now 17, Kyle has said to me
often, "Sally is the best Christ-
mas present I've ever had,
Dad."
Now she is missing.
Sally started life as "Suzie."
That's what George Burnett, her
first owner, called her. George
said she was part rottweiler and
part German shepherd. With the
short black shiny hair and
brown markings of a rottweiler,
and the pretty face and stand-up
ears of a German shepherd, she
showed traces of both breeds,
although she never got nearly as
big as either. She has a white
star on her chest.
Kyle and I used to take her
walking through Pioneer Park
and around Rock Lake and
along Peace River. She loved to
run through ditches with about
two inches of water in them.
Her legs would become a blur
as her four little paws kicked up
water like small outboard
engines, she resembled a minia-
ture airboat zooming along.
When she was feeling espe-
cially frisky and playful, she'd
get clumsy. Once we were
walking along the road behind


the house and Sally started
bouncing back and forth be-
tween us, running circles
around us both, when - wham!
- she smacked right into a
telephone pole. Didn't stop her,
though. Hardly even slowed her
down. She shook it off and took
off again.
For the first three years of her
life Sally was mostly an inside
dog. While I wrote, she would
lie on the floor at my feet. At
night she would sleep on a rug
at the foot of the bed. But as
well-behaved as she was and as
clean as I kept her, she shed hair
by the buckets and, although
she was housebroken, accidents
did happen.
When I first put her outside, a
sprawling old live oak shaded
the back yard, so that when I
went to work during the day I
could tie her knowing she was
all right. But when Hurricane
Charley took the tree, I could
not leave her tied all day in the
sun.
She was-very good about
staying close to the house.
Sometimes she'd lie in the dirt
beneath it, or play in the back
yard. Occasionally she'd amble
around the block to say hello to
her friends. But she never
strayed far from home.
But I worried about her


because I've had many dogs,
some of which I've seen meet
tragic ends under the wheels of
automobiles. But Sally never
stayed gone long, and she
always came home.
Until a few days ago.
What's odd and sad is I can't
remember exactly the last time I
saw her. I think it was a Wed-
nesday, just after sunrise, when
I fed her on the side porch.
That afternoon when I came
home she was not there to greet
me, as she always is. When
Kyle came home I asked him if
he'd seen her, and he said yes;
but now he says he isn't sure.
Kyle has- crawled under the
house and bicycled the neigh-
borhood looking for her. I've
walked past windows and
thought sure I saw her playing
in the yard, only to hurry out-
side to nothing. Wishful think-
ing, I guess; my mind playing
tricks.
Sally weighs about 50
pounds, wears a gray collar
with tag No. 02808, and she is
very shy and good-natured.
If you see her, please e-mail
me at chipkyle746@embarq-
mail.com or call me at (863)
448-6494. Her water and food
bowls are on the porch, waiting.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Now God says He will
accept and acquit us -
declare us "not guilty" - if we
trust Jesus Christ to take
away our sins. And we all
can be saved in this way, by
coming to Christ, no matter
who we are or what we have
been like.
Romans 3:22 (TLB)
FRIDAY
Yes, we all have sinned; all
fall short of God's glorious
ideal: yet-now God declares
us "not guilty" of offending
Him, if we trust in Jesus
Christ, who in His kindness,
freely takes away our sins.
Romans 3:23-24 (TLB)
SATURDAY
But Abraham never doubt-
ed. He believed God, for his
faith and trust grew ever
stronger . . . He was com-
pletely sure that God was
well able to do anything He
promised. And because of
Abraham's faith, God for-
gave his sins and declared
him "not guilty."
Romans 4:20a,21,22 (TLB)
SUNDAY
But now you are free from
the power of sin and are
slaves of God, and His ben-
efits to you include holiness
and everlasting life. For the
wages of sin is death (eter-
nal), but the free gift of God
is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord.
Romans 6:22-23 (TLB)

money because times were hard,
although gas was 15 cents a gallon,
bread was five cents a loaf, and you
could get a soda for five cents.
He spent the money his grandmother
gave him on candy and going to the
movies, which was every Saturday. You
could get into the movies for 10 cents.
He has lived in Fort Lauderdale,
Grand Ridge, Ocala, and is currently
living in Wauchula. He said he has

moved 10 times in his whole life.
As a kid he worked at a dairy for five
years, after school and during the sum-
mer.
He was about 10 or 11 when his fam-
ily got electricity.
He said that his family didn't take
vacations that often, but when they
would go, they would go back to Grand
Ridge. He said he enjoyed all of them
because they still had mule wagons in
Grand Ridge, and he would get on some
of the mule wagons and go for rides.
He said he enjoyed all of the vaca-
tions because he got to see all of his
family and relatives.
If he could do one thing in his life
over again it would be not to get mar-
ried so young, because he got married
the first time at the age of 17.
He has two kids, one of them a girl
and the other a boy.
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 and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

Special To The Herald-Advocate
The person I interviewed was my
grandpa, Kenny Hewett.
He was born in Grand Ridge on
April 23, 1926.
He said life was very pleasant
because he and his friends swam in a
canal that was like a spring, and they
also hunted and fished together. In his
free time he played Little League base-
ball, went hunting and fishing.
His dad worked in the orange groves
and his mom was a housewife, taking
care of five -


MONDAY
So there is no condemnation
awaiting those who belong
to Christ Jesus. For the
power of His life-giving Spirit
- and that power is mine
through Christ Jesus - has
freed me from the vicious
cycle of sin and death (eter-
nal).
Romans 8:1-2 (TLB)
TUESDAY
We are saved (eternally) by
trusting. And trusting Him
means looking forward to,
getting something we don't
have yet... But if we keep
trusting Him (God) for some-
thing that hasn't happened
yet (our eternal life), we wait
patiently and confidently.
Romans 8: 24-25 (TLB)
WEDNESDAY
And we know that all that
happens to us is working for
our good, if we love God and
are fitting into His plans for
us ... For I am convinced
that nothing can ever sepa-
rate us from His/love. Death
can't and life' can't. The
angels won't and all the
power of hell itself cannot
keep God's love away . . .
nothing will ever be able to
separate us from the love of
God demonstrated by our
Lord Jesus Christ when He
died for us.

'Cats Stop Streaks 28-0;




Greet Tigers On Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It was almost d6ja vu, but at
last the game got under way.
The Hardee Wildcats made
the 90-minute delay pay off big.
When they finally got to play
about 9:p.m. Friday night, they
dropped the Sebring Blue
Streaks 28-0.
;This week, the 'Cats are at
home, taking on the Palmetto
Tigers for the first time in a
couple of years. Coach Ray-
mond Woodie, quarterback
Donald. Campbell and the
Tigers have had a rough start to
the season. They lost the season
opener 20-3 to the Bradenton
Southeast Seminoles and were
defeated 35-3 by the Manatee
Hurricanes last week.
S "Palmetto is very big, very
athletic, a lot of run and pass.
SThe quarterback is athletic, the
running back very mobile..
:We'll have our hands full." said
Wildcat Head Coach Tim Price.
Meanwhile, Hardee was
Stormed out in the season open-
er against Fort Meade and
demolished the Blue Streaks
last week. compiling 375 offen-
sive yards while holding the
Streaks to just 130.
Wildcat quarterback Ezayi
, Youyoute took Offensive Player
of the Game honors, rushing a
dozen times for 181 yards and a
pair of touchdowns. Jarrius
Lindsey added 13 caries for 127
yards and a TD, Jake Mayer
added 10 for 45 and a reception
for 14 yards, and Antjuan Jones
had two carries for five yards,.
Senior Dalton Farr claimed
Special Teams honors with his
tackling efforts: Soph Deonte
Ev.. ans .again took. Scout. Team
honors for his wide rteeiver
play during practices.
It was the defense which
stood out, however. Senior Jake
S Nowakowski was D Player of
the week with seven tackles,
one for a loss and one sack, plus
a fumble recovery touchdown.
Senior Jonathan Kelly chal-
lenged for honors with eight
tackles, one for a loss, two
sacks and a pass breakup.
Lunior St. Louis added four
tackles and two sacks and Cody
Hemandez hadfour tackles and
a sack.
Mikey Retana and Keshaun
Rivers had interceptions, and a
Tony Valdez sack 'caused the
fumble Nowakowskw recovered
for the TD. Quinton Carlton had
some big hits and Jones had a
fumble recovery as well.
"We've been working on,the
pass defense package all sum-
mer. We flew to the ball. We
made them throw. We changed
the scheme a little and it's paid
off," said pleased Defensive
Coordinator John Sharp.
"It was a good team win. The
kids played hard as a total team

effort. We're proud of them for
playing that way for the full
four quarters. It's something
we've preached all year and
have finally got a full game
effort,' said Price.
Hardee has been playing
Sebring on and off since 1926,
with Hardee having the overall
lead in their series. Sebring last
won in 1999. The Streaks
defeated -Lake Placid the first
week of the season 36-6.
Hardee won the toss and
elected to receive the football.
When the game began,
Mayer returned the opening
kickoff 14 yards and Hardee
started at its 24. Lindsey ran
over right guard for two yards.
On a pitchout from Youyoute,
Mayer went around right end
for five yards. The next pitch
was stopped in the backfield
and Hardee punted.
Sebring returned the kick
from its own 46 to the Wildcat
38. Junior quarterback Matthew
Grubb opened up with a pass to
classmate Jaquan Williams for
13 yards and the first down.
Daniel Burnett went up the
middle for six yards and a quick
pass to Michael Grimes put the
Streaks at the 6-yard line.
Burnett 'scrambled to 'the
Wildcat 2.
An offsides penalty pushed
the Streaks back five yards.
Burnett was pushed back anoth-
er yard as Hardee dug in defen-
sively. A pass in the end zone
was defended by Retana and
Sebring decided to settle for a

10-yard field goal, which was
short.
Hardee took over at its 20.
Youyoute went up the middle
for three, over right guard for
two, more. The teams
exchanged punts and'turnovers
for the rest of the scoreless first
quarter. Sebring was making
progress on passes, but was
intercepted by Retana to halt
the action.
Early in the. second period,
Hardee had possession, with
Lindsey and Youyoute runs.
Youyoute scampered the final
29 yards to pay dirt and Martin
Vega added the PAT for a 7-0
lead a minute into the second
stanza.
Sebring was going good
again, when Rivers dove for the
interception. Hardee turned it
back over on a fumble. As the
half wound down, back-to-back
St. Louis sacks kept Sebring at
bay.
Sebring began at its 32 and
went three and out to start the
second half. In turn, Hardee
punted., That's when the
Sebring passer was hit and fum-
bled the ball. Nowakowski
scooped it up and ran for the
end zone. Vega made it a 14-0
game.
Sebring had a short series on
its next effort, getting a pair of
first downs, one'on a penalty.
Kelly sacked the quarterback
and forced a punt, which rolled
dead at the Wildcat 6.
Facing 94 yards to go,
Hardee took the easy way.
LiAdsey went five yards. Then
Youyoute picked up a first
down at the 23. On the next
play, he hesitated and went up
the middle, running untouched
for 77 yards to score. The Vega
kick was good. It was 21-0.
Sebring fumbled on the punt
on the next possession and
Hardee took over at the Blue
Streak 35. Despite a five-yard
penalty, Hardee took one play
to score, as Lindsey went up the
middle for a 40-yard TD.
Again, Vega was on target and
Hardee led 28-0.
The final period was an
exchange of possessions with-
out scoring. In the waning sec-
onds, Youyoute took a knee
three times and ran out the
clock.
Staff writer Jim Kelly con-
tributed to this report.

t SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



While shopping in Japan, a
tourist saw a gorgeous mirror.
"It's beautiful," he explained.
"I must have it."
"But," said the merchant,
"it wasn't made to see your
face in it,-but our god. Take it
to the window. Let the sun
shine on it."
The tourist did, and he saw
the face of Buddha.
An artist had worked the
face of his god in it, and the
sunlight brought it out.
Have you worked the face
of your God into your life so
that others see Him when they
see you.
This is what the Psalmist
had in mind when he prayed,
"Let the beauty of the Lord
our God be upon us.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo

Well, Football Fans, the second week of college football has
heads shaking and underdogs cheering. Central Michigan stuns
Michigan St. and Houston upsets.5th ranked Oklahoma St. while
Toledo.stunned Colorado on Thursday night 54-38. This is not the
abnormal, but the way of college football today. Limiting scholar-
ships to 85 for each school, coupled with the amount of good foot-
ball players.being readied across the nation, has made parity a big
part of college football.
SThe-Buccaneers opened the season just like the other Florida
NFL teams. They all lost. The Bucs ran the ball well with Williams
and Ward carrying the load. Byron Leftwich was 25 of 41 for 276
yards and touchdown. He is still "Firin Byron," but I wish he
would have a little more touch on his passes. Many were dropped
but is it the receiver or the force of the throw? The field goal-kick-
ing game and the secondary doomed the Bucs on this day.
The other Florida teams suffered opening day losses, too.
Jacksonville lost to Indianapolis 14-12 and Miami to Atlanta 19-7.
The Dolphins had four" turnovers in the game after only 13 all of
2008. They were never in sync all day. Chad Pennington was 21 of
29 for 176 and a touchdown but threw one pick and had a ball
stripped for a turnover also.
. The ACC, maligned nationally last week, came roaring back
this week with an 8-1 record versus out of conference opponents.
FSU roared back to steal a victory over mighty Jacksonville State.
Maryland went to overtime to stun James Madison. Connecticut
blew a 10-0 lead in the fourth quarter to North Carolina and lost 12-
10. The game winner was a safety on a holding penalty in the end
zone. Wake Forest gets the most props for defeating PAC 10
Stanford 24-17. Virginia'Tech ran for over 400 yards against
Marshall's defense in a 52-10 rout. The embarrassing loss by the
Herd may force the administration to finally start a coaching
search.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys, who beat Georgia, last week,
were my pick for the "Surprise Team" of 2009. They have not dis-
appointed. From the number 5 ranking to losing to CUSA Houston
the next time out, they continue to surprise, if not shock.
SMichigan has won two in a row. Guess that gets the fans of
Rodriguez back? Does beating Notre Dame really mean anything
in the 21st century? Other than to Lou Holtz who predicted them
toplay for the NationalChampionship. I think not. This week, the
Wolverines take:on that mighty instate rival Eastern Michigan. This
will be followed up wiNh huge games against Indiana and Michigan
State, a team that lost to Central Michigan. Go Blue.
. The Gators. have the scrimmages 'out of the way and are
focused on the Tennessee Volunteers UT Coach Kiffen has given
Them all 'the bulletin board material they can post. It is now time to
Shut up andpilay some football. The view from here is the Vols will
pay big for their coach's remarks. The Swamp will be full and
ONLY Gators get out alive.
The Ohio State Buckeyes again had their chance and blew it.
USC was allowed to drive the field in the final minutes. The
Buckeyes again stoleAdefeat from the jaws of victory. A chance at
redemption and validation of their place on the national scene has
gone by the wayside. Somebody tell the folks in Columbus that the

real college football power in the state resides in Cincinnati.
Locally, former Hardee Wildcat Jermaine King, playing at
West Virginia State, has 18 receptions for 232 yards and 2 touch-
downs for the Yellow Jackets. He is the leading receiver again after
having over 700 yards receiving in 2008. His team is 1-2 this sea-
son.
Now for this week's' Bill O' Fare:
1.) Tennessee at Florida - Gators will be electric as will be the
Swamp when rival UT invades on the heels of a stinging loss to
UCLA. Tebow makes mincemeat of the Vols. This Gator team
,could be the best in UF history. Florida 44 Tennessee 17.
2.) West Virginia at Auburn - Mountaineers have not lost to
an SEC team in this century, highlighted by bowl wins over
Mississippi and Georgia. WVU defeated Auburn 34-17 last year in
Morgantown. Look for a close game.WVU 31 Auburn 27.
3.) Bowling Green at Marshall - Herd must win or play in
front of empty stands for a lame duck coach the rest of 2009.
Snyder has taken a Cadillac Program and turned it into an Edsel.
BGSU 38 Marshall 20.
4.) Temple at Penn State - Paterno continues his drive to the
Big 10 Championship. Going out of conference for an old rival this
week. Penn State 56 Temple 7.
5.) FSU at BYU - BYU is for real. This is no Jax State game
and the trip to Utah will take its toll on the Seminoles. BYU 38
FSU 13.
6.) Georgia Tech at Miami - Miami beat FSU in good fashion
but the Jax State game showed FSU is not what it appeared. GT is
the ACC power. Can the Canes do it at home? The passing game
looks good in 2009. Georgia Tech 33 Miami 24.
7.) Charleston Southern at USF - Do three of these games in
a row really make a statement for USF? The Big East sees the Bulls
as a possible champion along with Cincy, WVU and Pitt. USF 48
CSU 13.
8.) Navy at Pitt - Pitt is not Ohio State. They have a great
frosh running back. Don't look for the Panthers to nail down a win
in the closing minutes 31-27. This will be ugly. Pitt 46 Navy 17.
9.) Toledo and Ohio State - Big Game in Cleveland. Instate
rivals going at it.-Toledo beat Michigan last year. Can they beat the
Buckeyes in 2009? Ohio State 34 Toledo 31.
10.) Buffalo at UCF - Buffalo went bowling last year. Can the
turnaround continue? Knights need a win. Buffalo 28 UCF 17.
11.) Tulsa at Oklahoma - The Golden Hurricane could give
the Sooners all they want. They are prolific scorers and the Sooners
will be without Sam Bradford. Oklahoma 35 Tulsa 30.
12.) North Texas at Alabama - Mean Green better be meaner.
Alabama 48 NTS 13.
13.) Florida Atlantic at South Carolina - Spurrier gets a win
for a paycheck. USC 35 FAU 14.
14.) Mississippi at Vanderbilt - Ole Miss will be tested by the
Commodores.They played well last week. Mississippi 27 Vandy
17.
15.) Louisville at Kentucky - This time these teams do play
this week. Sorry for last week. Wildcats will destroy their instate
rivals as the Cardinals have imploded since Petrino left. Kentucky
55 Louisville 17.
16.) Tampa at Buffalo- Bucs need to correct a few problems
and win this one. Probably picking from.the heart and not the head
on this one. Tampa 27 Buffalo 24.
17.) Indianapolis at Miami - Fish need to regroup. Miami 24
Indy 23.
18.) Pittsburgh at Chicago - Steel Curtain takes care of road
business. Pittsburgh 34 Chicago 21.
19.) Arizona at Jacksonville - Cards trying to get back to the
Super Bowl. It is a long trip from the, desert though. Arizona 28
Jacksonville 20.
20.) NY Giants at Dallas - GMen have better dbacks than
Tampa. NYG 31 Dallas 24.

Manor Memories
By Gilly Knight
Marketing and Admissions Director


FULL OF GRACE
I would like to share a story of a very special patient and day-
time resident of Hardee Manor. This was not our typical admission;
this was one that touched the lives of the Hardee Manor family in
so many ways.
The patient is a dog that was found by our social service direc-
tor, Patty Johnson, and her husband. They found the puppy in a
pasture, lifeless and covered with ants: After a trip to the vet, they
received instructions for all the medication that she needed, and the
round the clock care.
Patty had no choice but to bring
the pup to work with her. What a
better way to get round the clock
care but at health-care center?
After several weeks of love and
Attention from the staff and the risi-
S dents of Hardee Manor, the sick lit-
tle helpless puppy got better and bet-
Ster, and spunky. The pup brought
many smiles to all of us, lut it was
4 the heart of Ela in the Therapy
Department who fell in puppy love
the hardest. Ela started taking care
of the puppy on her lunch break, and
then Patty and Ela started sharing
custody- of the sweet little puppy.
The three of them formed an amaz-
Gracie, a few days after ing connection.
she was found. The puppy grew and became
more active and more loved. She brought so many smiles to the
residents, ahd everyone looked forward to seeing her.
God knew what He was doing when He brought the three of
them together. He opened a door for Patty for a great career oppor-
tunity in Tallahassee. The puppy now lives full time with Ela, and
still visits Hardee Manor. She is much bigger and more active.
Oh, yes, she does have a name, it's Gracie. So believe me
when I tell you, Hardee Manor is not full of grace, but that Gracie
is full of it at Hardee Manor.

Remove Non-Permitted Pipes


COURTESY PHOTOS
A great deal of work goes into that
week at Hardee Senior High
School before teens fill the hall-
ways. Teachers returned to the
S- / campus on Aug. 17, some from
- - summer classes or jobs, others
from vacations, and all ready to
prepare their curriculum and class-
rooms for the new academic year
� ahead. Students, of course, came
.* back to class on Aug. 24. Teachers
had their strategies in place,
I thanks to pre-planning workshops
and meetings such as those pic-
tured here. The top and middle
S photos give a glimpse of the col-
laboration necessary for a suc-
- cessful year, as does the bottom
photo, which also shows the
school's new assistant principal,
Mary Farr (far left corner), working
with teachers of advanced-place-
ment courses.

Culvert pipes which were
improperly installed must be
removed.
Despite numerous letters,
owners of four properties. at
which non-permitted pipe has
been installed in the county
right of way did not remove
them.
Kevin Atchley, county engi-
neer and director of public
works, updated the Hardee
County Commission last Thurs-
day on the long-standing prob-
lem.
Two of them have been re-
moved in the last week. Another
one removed the pipe but left
the county right of way full of
dirt. And the fourth one just
refuses to remove the pipe, said
Atchley.
Commissioners authorized
removal/clean up of the offend-
ing ditches, with the bill to be
sent to the property owners.
With a permit and proper instal-
lation to the proper specifica-
tions, the matter could be reme-
died. As placed, the pipes
would have done damage to









A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Shout with joy before the
Lord, O earth!... Try to real-
ize what this means - the
Lord is God! He made us,
we are His people, the
sheep of His pasture ... For
the Lord is always good. He
is always loving and kind,
and His faithfulness goes on
and on to each succeeding
generation.
Psalm 100:1,3,5 (TLB)

FRIDAY
Much will be expected from
the one who has been given
much, and the more a man
is trusted, the more people
will expect of him.
Luke 12:48b (PME)

SATURDAY
Still, I know that God lives -


county mowing equipment or
prevented ditches being
cleaned.

In other action, the commis-
sion:
- approved extension of an
agreement with SCS Engineers
for work at the county landfill
in closure of the old portion and
opening a new site.
- approved renewal of the
contract with the Hardee
County Health Department for
the new fiscal year, 2009-10.
The budget is four percent less
than this year due to cuts in
state and federal funding, said
Jim Griffin, business manager.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
asked the question every e
wanted to know. How is te
H1N1 (swine) flu going.
Medical Director Dr. Stephen
Gordon said they hope to have
vaccine by the last two weeks
of October and priority would
be given to the vulnerable pop-
ulation, in this case, pregnant
women. Eventually, those with
chronic diseases, very elderly
and everyone over.six months
would be vaccinated.


the One who gives me back
my life - and eventually He
will take His stand on the
earth. And I'll see Him, even
though I get skinned alive!
- I'll see God myself, with
my very own eyes. Oh, how I
long for that day.
Job 19: 25-26 (ME)
SUNDAY
For a time is coming when
people will no longer listen
to right teaching. They will
follow their own desires and
will look for teachers who
will tell them what they want
to hear. They will reject the
truth and follow strange
myths.
II Timothy 4:3-4 (NLT)
MONDAY
The Lord your God is with
you; the Mighty One will
save you. He will rejoice over
you. You will rest in His love;
He will sing and be joyful
over you.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NCV)

TUESDAY
Through Jesus, then, let us


Gordon said they have' sent
four to five cultures a week for
testing and have only one con-
firmed case here, although that
flu is widespread throughout
the state. There has not been
much morbidity/mortality in the
over 60 population, possibly
because many of them had a
similar flu in 1957-59 and may
have some immunity to this
one.
A question was also asked
about the prevalence of ALS-
amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,
commonly known as .Lou
Gehrig's disease. Gordon.said
there were reportedly four to six
cases here in the last four years,
but only one had a confirmed
diagnosis ofALS. The degener-
ative disease is diagnosed when
all other possibilities have been
explored. There is no specific
test for ALS.
Nursing Director Marsha Rau
said it was the same as concern
a couple of years ago about
the prevalence of brain cancer
here, but an epidemiology study
showed it was not outside
the range for such in a rural
county.


continually offer up to God
the sacrifice of praise, that is
the tribute of our lips
acknowledging His name;
and never forget to show
kindness and to share what
you have with others; for
such are the sacrifices with
which God is pleased.
Hebrews 13:1-16 (NEB)

WEDNESDAY
Seek the Lord while He may
be found; call on Him when
He is near. Let the wicked
forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him
turn to the Lord, and He will
have mercy on him, and to
our God, for He will freely
pardon.
Isaiah 5:6-7 (NIV)

if you could drive to the
sun at 55 miles per hour, it
would take about 193
years.

We make a living by what
we get, but we make alife
by what we give.
