Bank Robbery Suspect Apprehended


:By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A bank robbery last week in
the small town of Frostproof
and one in Wauchula a month
earlier a coincidence?
One local detective didn't
think so.
And now a man suspected of


robbing Seacoast National
Bank on U.S. 17 in downtown
Wauchula on Aug. 11 is behind
bars, facing charges in both
Polk and Hardee counties.
Donnie Edward Gray Jr., 25,
of 2090 Sagina Road, Avon
Park, has been charged with
robbery and fleeing to elude


police in Polk County for the
alleged robbery of Sun Trust
Bank in Frostproof on Wednes-
day of last week.
And the Wauchula Police
Department has charged Gray
with robbery and grand theft in
connection with the Tuesday,
Aug. 11, robbery at Seacoast


National Bank.
Gray, remained behind bars in
Polk County as of Tuesday of
this week.
Wauchula Police Chief Bill
Beattie said it was the bank rob-
bery in Frostproof which led
local police to their suspect. Lt.
David Stimson learned of that


robbery, the chief said, and
called detectives at the Polk
County Sheriffs Office to com-
pare the crimes and any simila'-
ities.
The robberies were carried
out in a like manner, Beattie
said, but the most significant
match seemed to he in the


clothing the robber was wear-
ing.
Stimson and Det. Kevin
Brock drove from Wauchula to
Bartow to see for themselves.
Stimson said the baseball cap
the Frostproof robber wore
exactly matched the one worn

70 Years Of Marriage
By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Seventy years ago World War II was at a pivotal point. Saturday,
Sept. 23, 1939, will always be remembered as the day all fighting in
Poland ceased.
But Robert and Woneta Picotte of Wauchula will re-member that
night for an entirely different reason. It was the night they were wed.
After witnessing that and other wars and a host of advancements
throughout the years, the Picottes are now commemorating their 70th
wedding anniversary.
While that morning 70 years ago may have started out like any
other day, it was the night of Sept. 23 that changed the lives of the
pair.
"My mom asked me if I had a dress or anything else planned. We


Steps 17-24, however, get no
pay increase at all for their
accruing experience.
But at Step 25, a teacher
moves from $51,078 to
$51,877. And $51,877 is the top
of the pay scale, regardless of
25, 30, 35 or more years of
experience. A teacher's pay-
check will remain the same
after that 25-year mark.
The same trend holds true for


s.


In addition to the step in-
crease many will get, every full-
time school district employee
- teacher or non-instructional
- will get a $500 bonus this
year.
The final financial considera-
tion worked out in the new con-
tract is an extra-$300 paid by
the School Board toward an
employee's health insurance.

"She was also adamant on the fact that we serve dinner. Suffice to
say, that night the guests had chopped sirloin while I wore my new
dress," she says.
The newlywed couple did not enjoy the traditional travel of a hon-

Freda Douglas, 76, a Wauchula widow, needs a wheelchair
ramp to get outside.
She is pictured with her caregiver, Linda Terhune, and their
dachshund Thumper, at their home at 2430 Begonia Drive at
Crystal Lake Village north of Wauchula.
Freda lived in Wauchula a long time, even after her husband
John died, but recently lived in Alabama two
years with Linda before moving back to
Wauchula recently.
About 10 or 12 years ago Freda
spearheaded a $100,000 fundraising
. effort to remodel the Wauchula City
Hall Auditorium so plays could be
produced there. She and the late Bill
SReed founded Hardee Players. Freda
is shown holding a plaque given to
her by the Wauchula City Council.
They got one price estimate from
a contractor for $800 for a ramp but
cannot afford that. A local church is look-
ig into this as a project, and another con-
tractor is preparing 'a price'
She has a motorized wheelchair. She is taking a vitamin D sup-
plement since she cannot get the real sunshine.
Up North Freda used to have her own restaurant. In Wauchula
she worked for the local newspaper for about seven years before
being paralyzed by a stroke about six years ago. She can be reached
at 773-4555 or 832-9259.

Fraud and wasteful'spending.
Health care consumes one-sixth - about 17 percent - of our
nation's economy. Many Americans live unhealthy lifestyles and
create early health problems for themselves. There is more empha-
sis on expensive treatment of disease and health problems than pre-
vention.

The AARP also reports that millions of Americans plan to

be retired 15 years instead of 30, reported Richard Johnson of

by the Wauchula bank robber.
From there, the Wauchula
police detectives went to the
Polk County Jail to talk to the.
owner of that hat, Gray.
Beattie said Gray admitted to
the bank robbery here.
In fact, the chief said, the sus-
pect described the crime to the
Wauchula detectives.
Gray allegedly said he parked
his truck over by the hardware
store that Tuesday 'afternoon,
and walked to the bank. He told
detectives he waited outside a
bit, then entered the bank.
There, he walked up to a
teller and handed her a note.
That note read: "I have a gun!
I won't shoot nobody if you
give me all the money out of the
draws both draws!!! You have
less then 30 sec to give me all of
the money. Put it on a bag. Be
quiet if you tell the police I
know where you live Trust me."
Beattie said Gray. told the
detectives, however, that he did
not have a gun on him when he
robbed the bank.
The suspect went on to
describe the crime, telling
Wauchula police that the teller
placed the money on the
counter and he picked it up and
walked away. While doing so,
he put the cash in his shirt pock-
et, he said.
Gray told the detectives he
walked out the door and to the
comer, where he started to run.
He said he panicked, and ran
through the parking lot at the
front of the hardware store. He
had to run all the way around
the store complex to get back to
his truck, the chief said Gray
told them:
After robbing the bank here,
he drove home, he allegedly
admitted.
The hat he wore in both bank
robberies is sitting in evidence
in Polk County, Beattie said.

would; it's all a matter of give
and take. But still, 70 years
later, I love her," says Robert
Picotte.
Growing up as high-school
sweethearts, the Picottes have
spent almost every day of their
lives together. Even after they
were married, they worked
together for over 10 years as a
maintenance man and house-
keeper in a hospital in Buena
Vista.
"I never cared to go out and
work. I love doing housework,
so this job suited me. However,
I would much rather prefer to
stay home and tend to my own
family," she remembers.
The Picottes are originally
from Michigan and Ohio,
where they tended to the care of
their three children, later com-
ing to Florida and being blessed
with six grandchildren.
While there are no big plans
to celebrate this day, the
Picottes will share an intimate
evening accompanied by close
family and friends - all to
mark a marriage milestone few
ever reach.

For example, compact fluo-

CFLs use 75 percent less ener-

That means the board's insur-
ance contribution is going from
$5,000 to $5,300.
It is that part of the new con-
tract which generated the most
feedback from employees,
HEA/U President Selden
Spencer said on Tuesday.
"People asked if the School
Board has increased its share,
why has the individual's premi-
um expense stayed the same,"
he said. Spencer said most felt
the employee's share should
have gone down.
Regardless, the union vote
was "overwhelmingly" in sup-
port of the new contract,
Spencer said. Over 300 voted
for the proposal, while only 27
were naysayers, Spencer said.
Besides money, the new con-
tract also deals with written
rules in the work contract.
Changes include clarifying
that the union is the exclusive
collective bargaining unit for all
district jobs, setting criteria for
the selection of summer school
employees rather than the for-
mer arbitrary system, and a
requirement that the contract be
placed on the board's Web site
and kept current for all changes.
Also on the Web will be a
prominent link to the insurance
carrier.
Most notable of contract
changes is one that will assign
every employee an e-mail
address, Spencer said. "It's one
of the things we've been push-
ing for for years," he noted. "It's
necessary because the business
of the School Board operates by
e-mail."
Of a total 679 employees,
147 did not have e-mail access.
Now, they each will have an e-
mail address and will have
access to a computer, he said.
Serving on the negotiating
team for the School Board were
Deputy Superintendent Woody
Caligan, Personnal & Food Ser-
vice Director George Kelly and
Curriculum Director Marie
Dasher.
At the bargaining table for
the union were Spencer, First


Vice President Heather Lang,
Secretary Missy Massey, Mem-
bership Director Gilbert Vas-
quez and Peace River Regional
Director Mike Bernier.
Schools Superintendent
David Durastanti, in presenting
the proposal to the School
Board on Sept. 10, noted nego-
tiations went well. "Everybody
was very nice to each other and
very cooperative," he told the
board.

Letter To The Editor

Our Heavenly Home

Will Last Forever


DearEditor:
What do most people think of
when they say, home? I often
think of home as being a yellow
two-story house, a home we
lived in for a number of years.
The old house had been around
for many years. How long I
don't know for sure.
SThe old house had seen better
days, even before we moved
into it. There was a total of
seven in our family, Dad and
Mom and five of us kids, two
girls, and three boys.
This house felt more like
home than any other house we
ever lived in. It was a big house,
five, bedrooms and two very
long Florida rooms. That's what
they used to call them. I felt like
it was enormous. Large dining
room, large front room, bath-
room. We even had a fireplace.
I thought it was very homey. It
did not look too badly, except
the big hole on the outside of
the kitchen. I was learning how
to drive.
We had wild bananas, grapes,
a kumquat tree, tangerine tree, a
pecan tree, a black mulberry
tree, palm trees, even a pear
tree. We rode our bikes all over
the place. We went fishing a lot
in the stocked ponds.
We captured lightning bugs.
We caught tadpoles, chickens,
butterflies, whatever we got our
hands on. We had ponies, one
cow, rabbits, hogs.
We were what people today
would call poor. My dad and
my mom worked hard for
everything we ever had. We
never went hungry. We never
had the name brand clothes. But
le were clothed and feed prop-
erly.
I think about home often.
Home. Where, is home? The
house we grew up in is no
longer standing. Our home
place wastorn down, when, I
don't exactly know for sure.
After, many years I went to


revisit and it was gone. I was
shocked.
I thought the old house
would stand forever, but I was
so wrong. It seemed to have a
good foundation. It had stood
the elements over the years.
years. It was old but sturdy, or
so it seemed.
Nothing here will not last
forever. Home,.where is home?
Where or' what do you call
home? I am longing for home.
A home full of love, no worry
over the things that happen out-
side the walls of home. Warmth
and safety inside its walls.
Comfort of having loved ones
all around. Shelter from life's
storms and tragedies. Father, for
protection. Mother, to kiss away
all hurts. Sister and brothers no
longer to fight with, then make
up.
Any house could be home, if
love is in it. Jesus will be what
makes it home for me, I hope
for you, too.
One day we will go home. It
will be the best' home -with
everything growing all around.
My father will greet me at the
door and welcome me in. This
home will never be destroyed
by man. It will stand for eterni-
ty.
All the love I had here for my
home place will seem like noth-
ing in comparison with my new
home. It will not be built with
human hands. A home that
holds no more tears; no more
pain, no sickness of any kind.
No cancer! Praise God. We will
not go hungry.
All we will ever need will be
Jesus. Our heavenly Father.
Home. Home, eternity with the
Lord, that will be home for me.
The love of Jesus will be
what makes it home for me.
How about you? Going home?
Your sister in Christ Jesus,
Sheila Miller

In Business
By Machelle Dollar


ARE YOU COVERED? - Lamarca Insurance has recently
opened an office in Wauchila.
This new addition to the array of insurance agencies serving
S:this county was brought on by the land's ownership. "We owned
the property, the agency prior to us did live up to our standards, we
just wished to open an office of our own," the company notes.
Being in the business for 25 years, Michael Lamarca, owner of
S Lamarca Insurance & Financial Services, understands the respon-
sibilities and care involved in being an agent.
"We are a family business. When you stop treating your clients
Like friends and family, they shop elsewhere. We would like to pro-
vide great products as well as service," Lamarca said.
Lamarca Insurance is located at 910 S. Sixth Ave. (U.S. 17) in
Wauchula.
. Being a new agency, Lamarca is asking the people of Hardee
S.County to give the new business a chance to make a quote on your
Insurance needs.

SBEST NEIGHBORS - Although Wauchula and Fort Meade
Shave enjoyed the services of 3D Fencing for the past 10 years, the
location of this business has recently changed.
Formerly situated right off U.S. 17 in Fort Meade, owner
.James Dempsey has felt the need to move his business. Due to this
change, he now has a shop where he can do small welding and
Shandyman jobs along with his traditional fencing.
"The move has allowed me to expand a little bit," Dempsey
said. "I have a bigger place with the addition of a shop, from which
I can increase the jobs I do."
SWhether you are in the market for a good fence, some welding

Helping Hardee
SBy Judith George
Hardee Help Center


S The Hardee Help Center is located at 713 E. Bay St. in
SWauchula, and is the ministry outreach of the Hardee County
S Ministerial Association.
The Help Center is dedicated to working together with com-
'munity agencies and churches to assist folks in our county who are
'experiencing hardships by offering emergency food, clothing,
Household items, economic assistance, and' resource counseling
and referrals.
Now. more than ever, in these difficult economic times, our
Community needs to pull together to help those in critical need.
A short history of Hardee Help Center: ;
It was begun many years ago as a "bean ministry" operated out
.of the historic Ausley Library building on the corer of Eighth
Avenue and Palmetto Street in Wauchula. The Help Center was set
up by local pastors to distribute small amounts of food, and beans,
Sto local residents who were experiencing hard times.
Jimmy Williams, associate pastor at Bowling Green First
Baptist Church and treasurer of the Ministerial Association,
Remembers, "A former school teacher volunteered to distribute
beans at the old library, and was there by herself for several years,
a few hours a week."
S The ministry continued on this level until 2000 when, with
support of aUpjld Way Venture,Grapt Hardee Help Center was
"born" as a 501c3 charitable organization. Pastor Jeff Ramsland
wasinamed executive director, and was the first employee paid by
the Ministerial Association.
Pastor Jeff handled all the business of food, financial assis-
tance and a small clothing distribution from the Help Center loca-
tion. The clothing distribution would become the Thrift Store in
.April 2002, an important. revenue source for the Hardee Help
Center as well as a place where folks in need could exchange a
voucher for a specific item.
The Thrift Store is located at 123 N. Seventh Ave., across from
the Presbyterian church, and is always happy to accept donations
and volunteers! Please know that all that is received at the Hardee
Help Center's Thrift Store is used to help those in.Hardee County
- your friends, family and neighbors!
The Hardee Help Center has grown by leaps and bounds since
its inception.
S Currently there are four paid staff members at the center, in
addition to two paid staff members at the Thrift Store.
It is the local Salvation Army Unit, a United Way agency, and
a Department of Children & Families Community Partner.
If you haven't-ever visited us, please know that you are wel-
come any time, if only to see what we do. By the same token, if you
have any ideas or suggestions on our services, we would be happy
to have you share them with us.
We are happy to help Hardee in any way that we can. May
God continue to bless our community and guide us in this mission.
Judith George is executive director of the. Hardee Help Center and
Thrift Store, both located in Wauchula.



OVER THE

FENCE .

By: Dr. Ross A. Hendry,
DVM
Dr. Hendry
So.much for retirement!
A friend of mine was visiting with the manager of the pro-
duce department in a Publix store in Port Charlotte and dis-
covered the man was a retired veterinarian. He asked the doc-
tor what he was doing in a produce department and he replied,
"You can only fish and golf so much." He did not want to go
back in practice so he got a job with Publix.
I don't golf, and I only catch fish when I go with Kenny
Sanders. I have a passion veterinarian medicine. I was talking
to a young veterinarian in another city last, week, and he com-
mented how he loves medicine and despised the people.
I love the people and the critters that come with them so it
is no wonder practice is more recreational than work for me. I
had some health issues that had to be resolved. That done, we
are going back to work.
You must be wondering why we did not bring in a replace-
ment veterinarian while I was out. We tried on several occa-
sions, and the ones available were not productive enough to
keep the hospital open.
We will re-open as an outpatient clinic stressing disease
prevention. We have the best diagnostic equipment in our area,
and to date I have practiced over 40 years, giving me a wealth


or experience.
We will be open Monday, Sept. 28, 8:30 to 5:30. Our
groomer Pat Roberts will be in for drop-off at 7:30 a.m.
We are looking forward to seeing you.

work, or a small handyman job, 3D Fencing is now located at 732
E. Broadway in Fort Meade:
MAIN STREET MAKEOVER - The downtown Wauchula
restaurant formerly known as Celtic Crossing has recently under-
gone a change.
Although there has been a newly added buffet, a different
name and new management are the most notable alterations.
The waiters, managers and owners had an ongoing joke about
the name of the restaurant. They felt it didn't complement the host
of the business, Hardee County. As a gift for the owner's birthday,
the name of the restaurant was officially changed to Celtic
Crossing Cattle Co.
The change in management was brought about when two of
the four partners left the business, leaving Shawna Bair to take on
the responsibilities of general manager. With new management
come new renovations. In order to try and attract more customers,
Celtic Crossing Cattle Co. has recently added a buffet featuring
American, Italian, and Mexican style entries.
. "Too many people thought we served just Irish food," said
Bair. "We still have our full menu but we also added an everyday
buffet."
As the newly appointed general manager, Bair agrees with the
recent alterations and hopes the restaurant continues to prosper.

Basis of Review (BOR), which is incorporated by reference in 40D-4.091, F.A.C. These amendments are intended to pro-

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well, Football Fans, the third week of college football was
"Upset Saturday" as Southern Cal, BYU and Utah all lost.
The polls should not be set in stone so early, in my humble
opinion, due to preseason hype. Maybe the Top 25 should be held
until week five or so, when a more accurate poll can be done. Nah,
that would take all the fun away! College football is what it is, pure
passion and fun.
The Gators didn't win as big as predicted but Lane Kiffen did-
n't go home singing Rocky Top all night, either. He and Urban
Meyer did shake hands after the game in a very quick encounter.
The ACt is becoming a conference of "how the other half
lives." FSU, Miami, Clemson, North Carolina and Virginia Tech
have posted impressive wins while Virginia, Maryland and the oth-
ers are so far behind they are out of sight.
' ,IThe SEC is shaping up to be a slugfest as usual. The Gators
seem to be the overwhelming choice in the SEC East. The SEC
West has Alabama, Auburn, Mississippi and LSU all unbeaten so
far. The Florida Gators travel to Lexington this week to face the
Kentucky Wildcats.
The Big East had a solid week but it could have been sensa-
tional if Louis ille and West Virginia had not thrown away games
to Kentucky and Auburn The conference went 6-2 with wins over
the Big 12. Big 10, Pac 10 and Navy.
' Pitt, 3-0, held Navy to 129 yards rushing in a game that was
never in doubt while Ohio St. only sealed a 31-27 win at home
against Navy in the final minute. Can someone explain to me why
Ohio St. is ranked and Pitt.is not? The Buckeyes are not even the
best college team in their o\ n state much less deserving of nation-
al attention. Yes. Cincinnati actually beat a'Pac 10 team this week.
At least. thea-bsurd talk of the Mountain West should take the Big
East automatic BCS Bowl \\ill be over with BYU and Utah losing
this week. '
USF QB Matt Grothe, who became the Big East all-time
offensive leader in history last week, was injured against
Charleston Southern and will miss thd FSU game this week.
Concerns on the Internet message boards fear the worst for the rest
Sof the season for the QB from Lakeland as well.
In Conference USA, UCF managed to beat Buffalo 23-17 to.
raise its record to 2-1. Southern Miss defeated ACC Virginia for a
quality out-of-conference win. Marshall got a .17-10 win over
Bowling Green as Darius Marshall rushed for 186 and the winning

touchdown.
Now, let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare:
1.) Florida at Kentucky -- Gators are glad this game is now
and not in November. The "Mildcats" play them tougher in cold
weather. UK is 2-0 but Miami of Ohio and Louisville are not UF
Florida 43 UK 13.
2.) Mississippi at South Carolina - Rebels on a Thursday
Night ESPN prime-time make the most of it. Gamecocks have won
two games so they won't roll over, though. Ole Miss 31 USC 20.
3.) LSU at Mississippi St. - Tigers roll with an eye ahead to
Florida. LSU 33 MSU 17.
4.) Arizona St. at Georgia - Dawgs will be tough to beat at
home for the boys from the desert. UGA has found its offense after
that opening loss. Georgia 45 ASU 21.
5.) Arkansas at Alabama - Look for the Tide to keep rolling.
Nov. 7 is the LSU game that many SEC are waiting for. Alabama
41 Arkansas 21.
6.) Marshall at Memphis - Thundering Herd plays its first
CUSA game. The defense will be called upon since the offense has
struggled. Marshall 24 Memphis 17.
7.) USF at FSU - What do you get when you spell FSU
backwards? A better school, so the joke goes. We will. see if that
applies to a Grothe-less Bulls. Which Nole team shows up? The
Jacksonville St. one or the BYU one? FSU 27 USF 24.
8.) Rutgers at Maryland - Terps have struggled this season.
Scarlet Knights need to win this one for the Big East. Rutgers 31
Maryland 17.
9.) Miami at Virginia Tech - Canes get a real test in Blacks-
burg. The Hokies have opened with Alabama, Marshall, Nebraska
and now Miami. Four teams with multiple National Champion-
ships. If they get by Miami, the rest of the ACC schedule looks like
a cakewalk. Virginia Tech 31.Miami 30.
10.) Fresno St. at Cincinnati - Bearcats make short work of
the WAC school. Tony Pike has looked like a first-round pick at
QB. UC 48 Fresno St. 21.
11.) Pitt at N.C. St. - Panthers defense shut down the Pack.
Pitt 28 NCSU 10.
12.) UCF at East Carolina - Knights have won two games
but Greenville Will not be so accommodating to them. Look for the
Pirates to pillage the boys from Orlando. The preseason hype,on
ECU has not added up, though. ECU 38 UCF 17.
13.) Illinois at Ohio St. - Zooksters get Zooked out of
Columbus. Ohio St. 44 Illinois 13.
14.) Ohio at Tennessee - Bobcats could not have picked a
worse time to visit. Kiffein will run up the score to convince him- '
self he is the man onold Rocky Top. Tennessee 51 Ohio 13.

SATURDAY IS NATIONAL HUNTING & FISHING DAY
Hunting and fishing have contributed to our society since colo-
nial days, and that's the reason behind National Hunting & Fishing
Day.'This Saturday, the contributions anglers and hunters make to
fish and wildlife conservation will be recognized.
Since 1972, every president has formally proclaimed National
Hunting & Fishing Day. This )ear, country music star Luke Bryan
is the honorary chairman. Also, the official Web site at
NHFday.org offers great tips on getting started fishing, shooting or
hunting and on where to go.
More than a century ago, hunters and'anglers were the first to
recognize that development and unregulated uses of wildlife were
threatening the future of many species. President Theodore
Roosevelt, a very active hunter and angler, supported the call for
the first laws to restrict commercial harvest of wildlife.
Hunters and anglers urged sustainable use of fish and game,
created hunting and fishing licenses, and lobbied for taxes on sport-
ing equipment to provide funds for state conservation agencies.
These user-driven actions were the foundation for some of the most
dramatic conservation successes of all time. Populations of large-
mouth bass, white-tailed deer, wild turkey, wood ducks and many
other species began to recover from decades' of unregulated
exploitation.
Sportsmen have also contributed countless hours to clean up,
protect and enhance millions of ~cres of habitat for the use and
enjoyment of everyone.
National Hunting & Fishing Day is considered by many to be
the most effective grassroots effort ever, undertaken to promote
these outdoor sports and conservation.
In modern times, this celebration of the enjoyment and health

I came to Wauchula in March
so that my husband could re-
ceive treatment at FINR for a
traumatic brain injury. In just
four short days, I made the deci-
sion to leave my home, family,
friends, church and everything
familiar to come to an area that
was completely foreign to me.
Until I came to Wauchula I
thought Florida was Disney
World and beaches. I now know
that central Florida is much
more -- a community of caring
and friendly people.
The people of Wauchula
made me feel safe and wel-
comed. I was greeted with
smiles, friendly greetings and
general kindness by everyone,
especially Lacy"Crawford, Jim
and Linda See, all the people at
Java Caf6, and the members of
First Baptist Church. You are all
wonderful ambassadors for
Hardee County, and you made a
very difficult time much easier
for a complete stranger.
Additionally I want to
express my admiration for all
the people at FINR. They are

benefits that hunting and fishing bring to participants is especially
important. Research shows active, nature-based recreation signifi-;
cantly contributes to the cure of obesity, heart disease and diabetes,
and a virtual epidemic of attention deficit disorder and the incieas-.
ing prevalence of asthma and allergies among children.
Not only is the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission a supporter of National Hunting & Fishing Day, it is also a
major promoter of the Get Outdoors Florida! coalition. Get
Outdoors Florida! is working to address these health issues that are
described as "nature deficit disorder." Besides that, by getting out-
doors and engaging in activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking
and wildlife viewing, research shows youngsters develop greater
self-confidence, a sense of responsibility and better social net-. -
working skills. That's the old type of social networking - being
face-to-face with people and with the quiet of nature to facilitate
calm conversations in a relaxed setting, rather than the frenetic
action of an electronic game or Facebook exchange.
While enjoying National Hunting & Fishing Day, it may be
worthwhile to consider the North American Model of Wildlife
Conservation's seven basic principles, which enable you to have'
such great hunting and fishing opportunities:
1.) Fish and wildlife are public resources. Throughout the
United States, wildlife is held in common ownership by the state
for the benefit of all people.
2.) Markets for trade in black bass and other wildlife and
sportfish are carefully restricted, removing a huge threat to sus-
taining those species.
3.) States allow sustainable use 'of sport fish and wildlife by
law, not by market pressures, land ownership or special, privilege, -
The public has input into how these resources are allocated.
4.) The democracy of hunting is emphasized. In North Ameri-
ca, anyone in good standing may participate.
5.) Hunters and anglers fund conservation, including protec-'
tions for wildlife species that are 'not harvested, by purchasing I
hunting and fishing licenses and paying excise taxes on recreation-
al equipment.
6.) Many fish and wildlife species are an international
resource. Species, such as migratory fish, transcend boundaries,'
requiring cooperative management.
7.) Science is the proper tool for developing fisheries policy.
This is a key concept of fish and wildlife management emphasized
by Theodore Roosevelt, Aldo Leopold and many other conserva-
tion leaders.
This year on Hunting & Fishing Day, celebrate the conserva-
tion successes brought about by hunters and anglers.
More importantly, find a way to take a youngster with you to
have a wonderful, fun and healthy day enjoying Florida's tremen-
dous fishing, hunting and wildlife-viewing opportunities.

First it is necessary to stand on your own two feet. But.
the minute a man finds himself in that position, the next
thing he should do is reach out his arms.
-Kristin Hunter,
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed
citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing:
that ever has.

'Cats Topple Tigers 23-7;



Face Frostproof Friday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Despite a pair of turnovers
and 13 penalties, despite Palm-
etto's best efforts, the Hardee
Wildcats wouldn't quit and
strongly overcame the Tigers
23-7 last week.
Junior fullback Jarrius Lind-
sey was the workhorse for the
'Cats, moving behind a strong
front line. On 29 carries, he col-
lected 156 yards of Hardee's
offense and got one TD.
Senior quarterback Ezayi
SYouyoute did his part in direct-
ing a masterful game. He.had
10 carries for 75 yards and a
pair of touchdowns and did his
defensive job too, picking off a
pass in the fourth quarter to put
the nail in the Tigers' coffin.
The 'Cats will need to be on
target, cut down on'penalties
and hold on to the ball to beat
the Frostproof Bulldogs at
home on Friday night. Although
the Bulldogs lost their pre-sea-
son game to Lakeland George
Jenkins 21-14 with an unchar-
acteristic four turnovers, the
Bulldogs are now 3-0 on the
season, ranked No. 4 in the state
2A rankings, and have the pre-
mier Polk County running back
in senior Nickell Robey, whose
10 TDs so far this season leads
the county. He has already
signed a letter of intent to play
for the University of Georgia.
In last week's 49-13 win over
the Ridge Bolts, Robey had
eight carries for 106 yards and
added an 85-yard kickoff return
to start the second half. But,
he's not their only weapon,
Three linemen are 260-plus and
wide receiver Eddie Smith and
running back/defensive end
Demetrius Barnes also make an
impact.
Meanwhile, Hardee is not
one-sided either, Although the
'Cats don't have the biggest
offensive and defensive line,
they are determined and smart.
The defensive backfield is im-
proving every game and the
offense has receivers and run-
ners beside Lindsey and You-
youte.
Hardee won the toss and
elected to receive to start last
week's game, which began with
a touchback from the booming
kick of Tiger Brandon Tarpley.
A penalty put the Wildcats in
the hole and forced a punt.
Palmetto started slowly, too and
punted the ball back..
The rest of the first quarter
was an exchange of punts.
Hardee got a couple of first
downs before stalling and
Palmetto had difficulty. On a
third-and inches, Lunior St.
Louis and Antjuan Jones
stopped the runner. Palmetto
elected 'to go on \the fourth
.down and the stingy Hardee
defense refused to move. A
measurement showed the half
foot lacking.
The Wildcats took over in the
waning minute of the first quar-
ter at the Hardee 37. On the first

play of the second session,
Lindsey broke loose for a 16-
yard, gain. He had a couple of
shorter runs and Youyoute fin-
ished off the series with a 32-
'yard TD run. Martin Vega
nailed the PAT kick. Ninety sec-
onds into the quarter Hardee
had a 7-0 lead.
A sack by Jake Nowakoski
stopped Palmetto's next drive
but, after the water break, a
Wildcat fumble gave the ball
back to the Tigers. They ran off
six plays and again tried a
fourth-and-four, coming up
inches short.
Hardee took over with 3:06
minutes left in the half. Jake
Mayer started things rolling
with an 11-yard gain, then went
up the middle for seven more
yards. Lindsey broke tackles
and got loose for a 40-yard race,
but was knocked out of bounds
at the 6-yard line. Two plays
, later, Youyoute ran left,
changed direction through, the
line and dove into the end zone.
Vega made it a 14-0 halftime
score.
. Palmetto started the second
half with a 38-yard Donald
Campbell runback, but ended
up looking at a punt on a fourth
and five at the Wildcat 42.
Quarterback Campbell execut-
ed the fake punt well and ran 26
yards to put the Tigers at the
Hardee 15. After a nearly inter-
cepted pass, Palmetto went for a
26-yard field goal, which was
.low and wide.
Hardee went four and out, but
punter Carson Davis was hit by
a defender and Hardee retained
possession. Shortly, a fumble
gave the Tigers the ball at the
Hardee 30. Back-to-back Wild-

cat penalties gifted Palmetto
with a first down at the 20.
Three plays later, Campbell
used the misdirection play for a
19-yard TD. The Tarpley kick
was good; and it was a 14-7
game.
' That's the closest the Tigers
would come. For the rest of the
third quarter, it was a change of
possession. A Cody Hernandez
sack to start the fourth period
forced a Palmetto punt.
After a short Lindsey run,
Youyoute faked the handoff and
went through the line for an 18-
yard gain. Five plays and a
penalty later, Hardee was at, the
Tiger 7-yard line. Lindsey took
it into the end zone and Vega
completed the process to give
Hardee at 20-7 lead.
Operating out of the shotgun,
Palmetto went to its passing
game. Youyouote intercepted a
pass at the Palmetto 45 and ran
29 yards to the Tiger 16.
Palmetto knuckled down and
refused to give way and Hardee
settled for a Vega 28-yard field
goal.
On the ensuing kickoff re-
turn, Chace Revell pulled the
return man down at his own 16.
Campbell was sacked again by
Nowakowski, then chased and
pulled down by Wildcat Andy
Hunt, leading to an incomplete
pass and a punt.
Hardee stayed on the ground
to run out the clock, but ran out
of tries when coming up a half-
foot short on a fourth-down run.
With 15.5 seconds left, Palm-
etto had time for one play. The
pass was complete but the
receiver was run down at the
Palmetto 37 as the clock ran
out.
The teams met at midfield for
prayer, then separated into hud-
dles. Afterward, Head Coach
Tim Price lauded the Wildcats.
'"The kids played great. Jarrius
(Lindsey) had a great game. We
stubbed our toes a couple of
times, but I knew that wouldn't
last. And, they decided to
straighten up and get re-
focused.
"We'll have a hard game
coming up. Frostproof is simi-
lar to Palmetto and Sebring in
mixing up the pass and run.
We'll have to contain their best
back (Robey). We're preparing
for districts and taking one
game at a time. Our goal is to
better our last year's record. We
had planned a tough early
schedule to get them to face
adversity and they have,"
summed up Head Coach Tim
Price.

first CF Industries presented a report on fertilizer last Thursday to the Wauchula Lions Club
same at the Faith Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall. The main ingredients of fertilizer are
nitrogen, phosphate and potash. Nitrogen produces green growth, phosphate strong
ation roots, and potash healthy growth. In the next 25 years the world's population is expect-
a and ed. to grow from six to 7.5 billion. Commercial fertilizer increases crop yields over
e and organic fertilizer by two to three times. Land available for agriculture is declining world-
Wau- wide, said Richard Ghent. CF's director of community affairs. Without commercialafer-
arents tilizer, two billion people in the world would go without food, according to the late Dr.
', of Norman Borlaug, a Nobel Prize winner who was the father of the Green Movement. CF
owns about 25,000 acres in Hardee County and has been mining here since 1978. CF
has 176 employees working in Hardee, and 70 percent live here, said Ghent. Pictured
(from left) are club President Talmadge Albritton, Vernon Benbow, Ghent, and Calli
id Skipper, CF administrative coordinator. About 35 to 40 percent of CF's fertilizer is
exported to Latin America and none to China, a net phosphate exporter.

SPACE PROGRAM


LODGE LOSES CHARTER

Jay Wittner, of the National Space Society, spoke to the Hardee Rotary Club Sept. 2
about the importance of the nation's space program. There are 900 satellites in orbit
for America that provide navigation services, television, earth observation and military
applications. Wittner urges America to continue supporting and funding the National
Aeronautical Space .Administration (NASA). The space program has produced such
improvements as TV reception, GPS, cell phones, weather forecasting, survellience,
improved aircraft, medical technology, such as ultrasound, MRIs, and flat panel televi-
sion. He said 300 satellites are used for the television industry. Shown (from left) are
Wesley Roe, Wittner and Klaus Kunkel. The Rotary Club meets every Wednesday noon

1, announced Elks USA Grand Exalted Ruler James L. Nicholson of the Benevolent and
Protective Order of Elks. Current Wauchula members may apply for membership at
another Elks Lodge. The Wauchula lodge, located at 318 W. Main St, was sponsored in
1946 by the Arcadia Elks Lodge. Previous local members can apply for a certificate of
status. The local lodge in recent years had has a decline in membership. Two appoint-
ed trustees, Raymond Bibisi of Bradenton and Brian Burns of Arcadia, are in charge of
the building and contents, which are owned by the Grand Lodge. The reasons listed
for revoking the local Elks charter were failure to have a full complement of officers,
not making required reports, lack of a sound financial condition, failure to promote
programs, and not responding to the efforts of an appointed special representative.

REAL HISTORY
' "The world's historians have given us a bum steer.
How? Well, pick a century and try to explain why political
upheavals, wars and revolutions took place. Historians will survey
the world's brilliant people and explain to us how these folks engi-
neered it all.
But what if the historians are wrong?
What if the real history-makers are the weak and underesti-
mated, who faced circumstances and knew only one thing to do -
to pray? And as they did this poor little duty, the God and Creator
of us all granted their requests!
That's why I think Jesus said, 'Blessed are the meek." The
meek have a secret; they have a Big Brother who is strong.
Today this Big Brother continues to direct all who put their
trust in Him. They are writing a different kind of history.
We'll read it one day and be puzzled by the number of famous
names that are missing. The world counted them great, but there is
only One who is great and all those who choose His company.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Chris Thompson is a little
under the weather. She said she
is having back trouble and was
getting an injection in it.
Slick's dad is still sick. He lives
in Tennessee.
We tend to forget the ones in
the nursing homes, but please
don't. My mama was in it for
four years, and it was a miser-
able existence for her. She had a
massive stroke and was para-
lyzed and could not talk most of
the time.
Remember to go visit Bim
Davis. He can't carry on a con-
versation with you but you can
still talk to him. Leo Blink is,
getting therapy. on his hand.
Remember all of these in
prayer.
.Last \week I mentioned our
revival pastor, Randy Perry,
loved guava marmalade enough
to be from Florida. Well, every
time you hear a pieachert you
learn a little more about him.
He shared this week that he was
born in Eustis and moved to,
Georgia at a very .young age.
This explains his love for guava
marmalade; it's just born in


you!
I sincerely appreciate all of
you who tell me you read this
column and enjoy it. I saw Liz
Rumley the other day at Wal-
Mart and where else do you see
someone if you don't go to the
same church! She told me she
enjoyed the Fort Green News!
Her health is no longer good. I
remember when she and her
husband, Earl, and Avis and
Tom Sasser would can vegeta-
bles in the can together. It was
an all-day job! That is nearly a
lost art and lost equipment to
actually put vegetables up in a
can. Nowadays most people
justfreeze them or a few still jar
them.
Junior Cooper was in really
bad shape but his brother,
Ernest, said he's doing better.
Mildred Cooper has had a few
days where she was a little un-
der the weather. Buddy Patten
has lost 60 pounds and walking
with a walker, but he's still
going! Remember to pray for
these along with our country.
There appears to be lots of
acorns this year. In Georgia that
is a sign of a cold winter. Just


GEM OF A SPEAKER


like when the golden rods
bloom, it's six weeks to frbst.
Now all the Georgia sayings I
heard all my life might not be
true in Florida because I have
already seen some golden rods
blooming over near Highlands
Hammock. Six weeks would be
Oct. 16!
If the good Lord had not
decided it was time for Kay
Silverman to make his final
journey back in 1990, he and I
would be celebrating 50 years
of marriage on the 27th of
September. That is why I" al-
ways say when people can cele-
brate their golden wedding
anniversary it is a gift from
God.
Our pastor, Steve McGaugh-
ey, went to see the swimming
and diving team this past week
when they were in Hardee. I
sincerely appreciate a pastor
who cares enough to go see
the young ones from his church
participating in a sports activity.
There was- a good crowd at
Fort Green this past Sunday,
even though some of the,regular
ones were absent. Charles
Abbott and Tim Casey sang a
song about.we all make choices.
It was very pretty and very true.
As always, they do a terrific job
when they sing.
Remember to pray for each
other. And please call me with
any news!

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Starting next week, Wauchula
businesses will have to pay an
annual tax.
They used to pay occupation-
al licenses, but second reading
of an ordinance at the Sept. 14
meeting changed that.
In place of the license fee is a
new system of business tax,
normally billed on Oct.1 each
year. If a business opens after
April 1, it shall pay half a year's
. tax.
S Opening a business without
paying the tax results in an
additional penalty of 25 percent
of the tax. Not paying it within
60 days .of being billed could
result in a penalty of up to $250.
The tax amounts vary greatly,
beginning with $25,for accoun-
tants or auditors and ends within
utility services ($55) and
weighing machines ($10 each).
Between A and W are three
pages of listings of professions


or businesses and the amount of
annual tax. A complete list can
be obtained from the city.
In other business at its Sept.
14 meeting, the commission:
- approved resolutions, ac-
cepting a $311,000 stimulus
monies grant to fight drug prob-
lems and a Victim's Advocate
grant of $39,033, which em-
ploys a person to work directly
with victims of crime. That
grant has been received for six
years and has been very effec-
tive, said Police Chief'Bill
Beattie. '
- Received a copy of the
new five-year schedule of capi-
tal improvements. A lot of work
is planned for the 2009-10 fis-
cal year which begins Oct. 1.
There are a hangar facility, its
infrastructure, a fence and tax-
ilanes at Wauchula Municipal
Airport. There is electric sub-
station rehabilitation, purchase,
of a utility bucket truck, engi-


neering and drilling of a fifth
deep well, pipeline and storage,
and some work on the old
Coker Fuel Building which the
city purchased this year.
For the next fiscal year, costs
will be nearly $5 million of the
$31.2 projects projected over
the next five years.
- appointed Patti Clark to
fill a vacancy on the Code
Enforcement Board.
- approved bids from Wells
& Water Systems Inc. and from
CenState contractors for drill-
ing the fifth well, and a pipeline
to the water plant and necessary
infrastructure for it.
City manager Rick Giroux
said city crews had been effec-
tive in locating and closing a lot
of the infiltration and intrusion
places in the city's sewer sys-
tem, which will help prolong
the capacity and keep within the
permitted 1.0 to 1.2 million gal-
lons processed through the
wastewater plant per day.


County Wastewater Expanding


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advpcate
A pair of deep wells, a reha-
bilitated lift station and engi-
neering services.
At its Sept. 10 meeting, the
Hardee County Commission
approved over a half million
dollars in expansion funding for
the Wauchula Hills Wastewater
Treatment Plant and water
plant.
It is slowly bringing to con-
clusion the plant project begun
in 2001 because citrus nitrates
were adversely affecting the
water in Wauchula Hills Sub-
division.
Along the way the scope of
the project changed to also in-
clude connecting to nearby
mobile home parks and subdivi-
sions.


Already the initial plant is in
operation and providing ser-
vices for the Hardee Center of
South Florida Community Coll-
ege and Crystal Lake RV Park,
which have been on line for
about threpyears.
The new work will connect
Pine Cone Trailer Park, and
bids are out .to also bring
Orange Blossom on line. One of
the current projects approved
was $67,210 for rehabilitation
of the Orange Blossom lift sta-
tion in preparation for connec-
tion to the system.
Another was for $364,707 for
drilling of a pair of 12- to 18-
inch wells about 1,100 feet
deep. 'If a larger perimeter is
needed, it will include the nec-
essary casing to stabilize it.
David Cannon Well Drilling

Inc. will do the work.
A final approval was for
Craig A. Smith & Associates to
continue the construction obser-
vation, management and engi-
neering services for the utility-.
related infrastructure expan-
sions and extensions.
Original plans were to put the
about 300 homes in the Wau-
chula Hills Subdivision on the
wastewater/water system, but it
is a costly affair. It takes about
$2,500 per hoe to deconstruct
the septic system, and $1,000
for interconnecting sewer and
water meters and lines. There
are also manholes, the gravity
system and road work associat-
ed with it.
In Phase I, there were 85
homes done, with about five of
them rental homes vacant at this
time. Phase II, which goes for
bid Sept. .23, willhave monies
to include another 50 or more
homes, making the lines com-
plete down Rainey Boulevard,
also called "the double drive,"
said Park Winter, county direc-
tor of utilities.
Winter said although De-
partment of Environmental'Pro-
tection grants and sate financial
allotments will continue to meet
the construction and other
costs, user fees for the RV
parks, college, elementary/jun-
ior high and other users will pay
its portion.

Volleyball Battles Booker


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The improving Lady Wild-
cats took one of the four games
at Sarasota Booker last week.
"The girls played together
really. well .in -the, game they
won. They heed to do that all
the time to be successful," said
Head Coach Ken Leupold.
They had the opportunity
over the weekend in a tourna-
ment at Bartow, playing Bartow
and Winter Haven.
This week's games were
Tuesday at home against new
3A-11 opponent Cardinal
Mooney and today (Thursday)
at Bradenton Southeast.
Next week, it is back-to-back
home games to close out
September. Monday vs. Fort
Meade and Tuesday vs. DeSoto.


The Oct. 1 game is also at
home, a visit from Lake Placid.
In last week's trip to Booker,
Hardee girls had opportunities
in each game. They lost 25-19
in game one and 25-17 in game
two. Coming back to win game
three 25-18; the girls lost a
25-23 heart-breaker in game
four in the best of five games
match.
Senior Marisa Shiver had a
solid night with 18 good serves.
Eryn Mahoney had seven kills
and Yesenia Vargas added 16.
Vanessa Garza had 18 passes on
the money to the setters.
Other varsity players are
Lacey Garza, Brenda Zamora,
Meghan Graham, Sarah Beyers,
Daisha Blandin, Summer Palm-
er and La Cresha Carlton.
The' Hardee JV girls started


the evening on a good note,
winning the best two of three
games, 25-3 and 25-12.
In game one, it was Ana
Maria Saldavar getting points 2
through 9 and Ashley Nichols
finishing out the game %% ith ser-
vice points 13 to 25.
In game two Angelica Flores
served points one through eight
and another four during the
game. Saldivar added five good
serves.
"That good serving was what
won them the games," com-
mented Leupold.
Other JV girls are Kayla
Nichols Hannah Jacobs, Ash-
ley Armstrong. Maria Anselmo,
Kaitlyn Rowe, Kailah White,
Katie Wheeler, Desiree Smith,
Jessica Harrison and Myah
Gonzalez.

FROM
" THE
SOWER
M ,naelA Gm.ao DD
Mete. Geag,3
Years ago, a man worked as
a saddler's apprentice.
One day he saw a runaway
horse pulling a wagon on
which sat a frightened
woman.
A stranger caught the horse
by the bridle, and stopped it!
"What if that bridle had
been poorly sewed?" asked
the saddler. "And what if poor
thread had been used? The
bridle would have broken, and
the mother would have been
killed. I must turn out better
work."
The name Christ stands for
quality. If you're a Christian,
you must turn out quality
work.
The Bible says, "Whatso-
ever you do, do it heartily, as
to the Lord."

Priceless























Do you have dreams of"making it big? There is something even more
a luabe than success: time spent with those you love or a hug when you need it
the most. Some things are truly priceless....
Proverbs 17:6 says, "Grandchildren are the crown of the aged". Just when we
need them most, we have grandchildren who know none of our fanlts...a new
beginning...a new chance to "make it big." We can pass on to them our

JV 'Cats Squelch Streaks


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Overcoming emotions and
playing a solid four quarters,
the Hardee Junior Varsity Wild-
cats won 32-20.
Playing at Sebring, the young
'Cats had to contend with a
Sebring crowd and team which
dedicated the game, a jersey
and hat to the parents of 14-
year-old Marquis, a JV player
who had suddenly passed away
the previous Friday from what
has been determined to be
Sswine flu.
The youngster was well-liked
by his teammates and known to
several of the Hardee players
who had contested him in junior
high games.
"We overcame those emo-
tions and played a little better as
a team for the whole game. We
were up 18-8 at the half. It
should have been 18-0 but we
missed a tackle on a long run,"
said Head Coach Rod Smith.
He and assistants Barry
White, Andy Judah, Todd Bo-
lin, Shaun Rivers and Lee
Thomas take the team to Fort
Meade 'today (Thursday) and
will be home for a visit from

"We had deferred to the sec-
ond� half, took the kickoff and
..spent over seven minutes to
score and put us' up 25-8. We've
battled the flu, injuries and dis-
cipline problems. We've cor-
rected our substitution pattern
by changing from the Flex to
the I offence. We even over-
came our penalties. |
"It was a hard-fought game.
We got some bumps and bruis-
es and they did too., Our tail-
backs were injured so we had to
move Colby (Baker) from quar-
terback to, tailback and move
Justin Knight to quarterback,"
said Smith. /
While at quarterback, Baker
completed one of two passes',
going to Knight for a 15-yard
gain. In total rushing effort,

Hardee Swimmers In The Middle


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hosting a home meet, both
Hardee swim teams were right
in the middle between their two
opponents.
In last week's visit from
Frostproof ,and Avon Park,
Hardee teams split the differ-
ence. The very short-handed
Lady Wildcats, nevertheless
placed second. 'Frostproof won
.with the most swimmers apd
111 points, Hardee had 73 and
Avon Park 66.
On the boys side of the
ledger, it was opposite. Scores
were very close. Avon Park had
98, Hardee 93 and Frostproof
84.
It was Hardee's first home
meet of the season, and "we
were nervous. I want to thank
all the parents who came
through for us in timing, scor-
ing, running the concession
stand and cheering. Our only
other home meet is Oct. 20 and
we'd sure like them to be back,"
said Head Coach Jan Brutus.
She and assistant coach
Melissa Crider (former Hardee
swimmer Melissa Robertson)
were pleased with the teams'
efforts.








According to the American
Cancer Society (ACS),'most of
the more than 1 million cases of
non-melanoma -skin cancer
diagnosed each year in the
United States alone are consid-
ered to be sun-related.
These cancers rarely spread
to other parts of the body, and
typically develop on sun-
exposed areas of the body, such
as the face, neck, lips, ears, etc.,
The most common of all can-
cers, skin cancer accounts for
nearly half of all cancers in the
United States. Fortunately, for
non-melanoma cancers a cure is
highly likely if detected and
treated early. Even melanoma,
the most serious type of skin
cancer, boasts a 5-year local-
ized survival rate of 99 percent,
meaning 99 percent of persons
diagnosed are still alive 5 years
after their initial diagnosis.
Though that is encouraging,
ACS statistics note that more
than 10,000 people die annually
from skin cancer, the vast
majority of which are persons
diagnosed with melanoma,
emphasizing the importance of
cancer screenings as well taking
proper precautions when going
out in the sun.


The stegosaurus was a
large, plant-eating
dinosaur that lived about
150 million years ago in
what is now the western
United States. It had two
rows -of bony plates
shaped like huge arrow-
heads sticking out of its
'back and tail.


With.only five girls available,
Hardee combined seven first-
place finishes for its second-
place team score.
Junior captain Kate Krause
won the day. She was first in the
200 freestyle in a time of
2:28.01, well ahead of the 2:47
of Raeligh Miller of Avon Park..
Krause also won the 100 free, in
1:04.18, with Kayla Babington
of Frostproof in second place at
1:20.06. Hardee's Nicole
Franks placed sixth.
Krause and soph Savannah
Hagans went one-two in the 50
free, in 28.49 and 33.02 seconds
respectively, well ahead of four
other swimmers.
Krause was also instrumental
in both relay wins, the 200
medley and 200 freestyle.
Hardee did not enter in the
400 free relay, nor the 200
individual medley, 100 butter-
fly or diving.
Freshman Emma Marshall
won the 100 backstroke. Her
time of 1:22.84 was well up on
Lady Bulldog Sarah McElligott
in 1:50.24 and Lady Devil
Jessica Leitch in 1:51.81.
Jessica Hunt placed third in
the 100 breaststroke, just slight-
ly behind two other swimmers.


Hagans won the grueling 500
free in a time of 7:17.78, with
Avon Park's Rebecca Giles in at
7:54.96 and Frostproof's Kellie
Walsh in at 8:04.18.
Hardee boys were solid, but.
only picked up three first-place
finishes. Senior captain Josh
Rickett won the 100 butterfly,
with freshman Derrick Sam-
brano.placing third.
Junior Hunter Henderson
won the 500,free, with senior
Jake Willis placing second.
With the team scores 82-79-76
going into the final event, the
400 free relay, Hardee won the
event. Avon Park entered two
teams and got second- and.
fourth-place points to win the
meet.
Hardee also picked up four
second-place points. Junior
Brian Hagans was second in the
200 individual medley, Hender-
son second in the 50 free and
Wilis second in the 500 free.
Hardee was also second in the
200 individual medley relay.
Other Hardee swimmers con-
tributing points were senior
T.K. Hogenauer in diving, and
freshmen Will Crawford, John
Miller, Justin Rickett, Willie
Godwin and Kaleb Rickett.


Home computers are being called upon to perform many
new functions, including the consumption of homework
formerly eaten by the dog.
