Heartland Idol Finals Tonight


149th Ykear, No. 43


Orange Ave., Fort Meade, was
.transported by medical hbli-
copter to Lakeland Regional
Medical Center with multiple
stab wounds, the most serious
to his back.
A .responding officer de-
scribed him as "bleeding pro-
fusely."
Butler was listed in critical
condition in the hospital's ICU,
Bowling Green Police Chief
John Scheel said.
Scheel said the incident
apparently began in the early-
morning hours of Saturday,
sometime close to I a.m.


The chief said Ofe. Ryan
Abbott was dispatched to the
scene, arriving at Jones Street to
find a woman screaming,
"Hurry! They're killing' each
Other!"
Abbott reported seeing a
shirtJess man clutching a pole
for support and "bleeding pro-
fusely" from his back. The man,
Butler, also had "several large
slice marks" across his chest
and abdomen, the officer said
Another man, Abbott said,
was using the T-shirt Butler had
been wearing to apply pressure
to the wound in an attempt to


stop the bleeding. Hardee
County Fire-Rescue responded,
stabilizing the victim for trans-
.port.
Scheel noted that Abbott
asked the bystanders if they
knew who stabbed Butler.
"Several witnesses all began
yelling and pointing to"
Martinez, according to Abbott's
report.
As the officer approached
Martinez, he turned around and
placed his hands on the roof of
a nearby car, Scheel said. He
was handcuffed and taken into
custody without incident.


Witnesses told police the men
had been fighting, and attempts
to break them up failed.
Martinez allegedly then pro-
duced a knife, "swinging it back
and forth at Butler," Abbott
relayed.
Then, the two combatants fell
to the ground, "at which point,"
Abbott said; "Butler was
stabbed straight on, into the
back."
In a police interview,
Martinez reportedly admitted to
the stabbing, but said it was in
self-defense, Chief Scheel said.

Less than 20 percent of all
ovarian cancer is found at an
early stage. Approximately 75
percent of ovarian cancer cases
are diagnosed at an advanced
stage after the cancer has spread
beyond the ovary.
Research suggests that
between 70 to 90 percent of all
women with ovarian cancer
will, at some point, have a
recurrence of the disease.
From 2001 fo 2005, the
most recent period for which
data is available, the median
age at diagnosis for ovarian
cancer was 63 years.
Symptoms vary from
woman to woman and many
times depend on the location of
ithe tumor and its impact on the
surrounding organs. Many of
the symptoms mimic other con-
ditions such as irritable bolvel
syndrome or urinary inconti-
nence.

2A The Herald-Advocate, October 1, 2009


The work week can truly be
exhausting. By the time Friday
arrives, the taxing nature of
work can really take its toll.
Oftentimes, that toll manifests
itself in a number of ways.
Whether you grow easily aggra-
wated or simply struggle to.
maintain your energy as the
week weart on, chances are you
feel somewhat deflated by the
end of the work week.
While it might seem as
though you need to make some
drastic changes in order to
recoup your once vibrant ener-
gy, for most people that's not
the case at all. In fact, several
easy to instill lifestyle changes
can help you regain your energy
levels and head into the week-
end rejuvenated instead of put
through the ringer.
Turn the lights and televi-
sion off when you sleep.
Keeping the lights on or falling
asleep to the television inter-
rupts quality sleep, whether you
know it or not. Lights on while
sleeping hinders melatonin
secretion, essentially throwing
your body off track and forcing
it to reset. This can negatively
impact your energy levels when
it comes time to get out of bed.
In addition to turning the lights
and television off, try and drake
your bedroom as dark as possi-
ble when you go to sleep. This
will encourage a sounder sleep
and could help increase energy
levels as a result.
' Don't eat big meals at
night. The digestive system is
most active during the daytime,
which enables the body to use


food for energy much more
effectively. If you're going to be
eating, a large meal, it's best to
do so during the daytime. When
you eat a big meal at night, the
digestive system is slowing
down at that point and it is
much mqre difficult to digest
food.and convert it to energy. e
Stretch regularly. Even if
you're not arex3rcise enthusi-
ast, stretching can be beneficial
to your energy levels. That's
because stretching helps to
maintain blood flow by reduc-
ing clogging of the arteries. The
more freely blood flows, the
more energy you're likely to
have.
Emphasize cardiovascular
activities and exercise. Many
people aren't fond of joing to
the gym. However, achieving
optimal fitness doesn't have to
involve a gym membership.
Cardiovascular exercise, which
can include walkingejogging,
using the treadmill, etc., helps
to lower blood pressure, de-
crease body fat and reduce cho-
lesterol among other benefits.
Each of those things ican do
wonders for your energy levels.
While you might initially strug-
gle to muster up the energy to
include regular cardiovascular
exercise in your daily routine,
once you begin you'll find it
gets easier as you go. That's
because it's working, increasing
your energy levels.
In .addition, spending some
time away from home or work
while you walk, jog or even use
the treadmill can prove a valu-
able source of relieving stress.


Although the rates of ovarian
cancer have been steadily
falling since the 1980s, ovarian
cancer is still thb eighth most
common cancer among women.
Here are some other statistics,
courtesy of the American
Cancer Society and the Ovarian -
Cancer National Alliance.
About 21,550 new cases of
ovarian cancer will be diag-
nosed in the" United States in
2009.
A woman's risk of getting
mvasive ovarian cancer during
her lifetime is about 1 in 71.
However, her risk of dying
from the disease is 1 in 95.
Almost half (45 percent) of
women with ovarian cancer are
still alive at least 5 years after
diagnosis (this is called the 5-
year survival rate). The propen-
sity to survive 5 years after
diagnosis is higher the earlier
the diagnosis.




DANDRIDGE
Continued From lA
Belcher and Dandridge have
previously served two-year
terms. In last fall's election,
however, voters approved an
amendment to the town's char-
ter to increase the term in office
from two years to four.
This current election will be
the first to implement the new
longer term.
Belcher, who holds Seat 4,
was first elected to office in
December of 1996. This is the
first time she has drawn any
opposition in a bid for r.e-elec-
tion.
Schofield ran for a spot on
the Town Commissibn last year,
but lost to incumbent Juan
Otero, who garnered 82 votes to
her 74. That titne, Schofield.
was trying for Seat 1. This time,
it Sn i she\ Ils Seat 5,
was appointed in June of 2006
to fill a vacancy created by a
commissioner's resignation.
She has held various offices in
the town, and has previously
faced opposition.
This time, no candidates
applied to resilace her.

functions and memory. They
also showed an increase of
exploratory behavior.
The antioxidant components
of blueberries that give them
their vivid color help reduce
oxidative stress, as observed
after looking at the brains of the
treated mice. Oxidative stress is
damage to cell membranes and
DNA from' free radicals.
Antioxidants are known to find
and eradicate free radicals.
Oxidative stress is thought to be
a main culprit in many of the
dysfunctions and diseases com-
mon to aging.
' 'the research on mice bodes
well for people, primarily
because the senior U.S. popula-
tion continues to grow. By 2050
it is estimated that more than 30
percent of the population will
be over 65. It's likely that these
individuals will be interested in
looking and feeling their best
for years to come. .


Because of their neurologi-
cal, motor-function link, blue-
berries may be essential to.
reducing the severity of.neuro-
logie61 dis6aks, such as
Alzheimer's and other demen-
tias.
Apart from anti-aging psoper-
ties, blueberries and their
antioxidants can help with gen-
eral health as well. There have
been links to diets rich in blue-
berries and urinary tract health
due to reduction of the adhesion
of bacteria. Plus, blueberries
may play a role in preventing
certain cancers and cardiac
issues.
Individuals interested in
adding blueberries to their diet
can do so in many ways.
Whether enjoying blueberries
atop cereals, on muffins or sim-
ply straight out of the refrigera-
tor, incorporating servings of
this fruit into & diet can be ben-
eficial and delicious.


Millions of people enjoy
blueberries because they taste
good and are versatile enough
to be part of many different
menu items. Blueberries, how-
ever, are aGo nutrient-rich and
offer a host of health benefits,
one of which may be slowing
down the aging process.
This isn't to say that blueber-
ries can turn back the hands of
time, but they may help slow
down some of the typical side
effects of aging, most notably
diminished mental capacity.
In a USDA Human Nutrition
Research Center laboratory
study, researchers fed blueberry

Many homeowners love and
enjoy their pools, but don't feel
so good about the variety of
chemicals needed for the
upkeep of the system and sani-

As the green movement has
continued to grow, saltwater
swimming pools are becoming
a popular option for homeown-
ers across the country. Saltwater
swimming pools use little to no
chemicals to maintain the pool.
A chlorine generator conversion

When it comes to conditions
caused by harmful ultraviolet
rays from the sun, individuals
are quick to mention skin can-
cer. However, it's important to
note that the eyes are delicate
organs which are also very sus-
ceptible to sun damage.
UV rays are high-energy,
invisible rays of light. These
rays can warm up the planet and
promote life. However, they can
also be detrimental to areas of
the body when overexposure
occurs. When absorbed by the

e5esbUsV rays ab[create te
ing conditions.
One of the common side
effects of too much eye expo-
sure to UV rays is retinal dam-
age. To understand the damage,
one must first understand the
role the retina plays in the eye.
The retina -is responsible for
taking the light and shadows the
eye "sees" and converting this
information into the electrical
impulses that are sefit to the
brain to form the "picture" Ill
front of us. The retina is sort of
the film inside of a camera. The
macula is the most sensitive
part of the retina. It is responsi-
ble for the fine detail we -see.
Without the macula, the images
from our eyes would be blurry.
When the eyes are damaged
from the sun, the retina can be
compromised. Depending upon
the damage, vision may become
blurred or distorted. Vision loss
may also occur.

An artist cannot fail; it is a
success to be one.
-Charles Horton Cooley


There are many people who
look forward to the cooler, cgisp
days of autumn. They're inter-
ested in seeing the foliage
change color to those bright
blazes of crimson and orange.
However, for the millions of
allergy sufferers out there,
autumn may be as tricky to nav-
igate as the spring season.
That's because pollen, mold and
ragweed are common offenders
come this tinie of year. Heading
outdoors to rake leaves or enjoy
the scenery can cause itchy
eyes, the sniffles and more. The
trouble is, many people fail to
realize allergies can occur in the
autumn, and chalk their sniffles
and sneezes up to the common
cold.
If you suffer from seasonal
allergies, don't wait ubtil symp-
toms are in full force before
taking action. Autumn comes
around every year and you can
be proactive about keeping
allergies at bay.
Motor the air. Get pollen
.. and ragweed counts from any


antioxidant compounds called
flavonoids and phenolic acids;
research on photochemical con-
tent of hemp seeds is still limit-
ed for now. Hemp seeds can be
eaten plain, like nuts, or mixed
into baked goods. Flax seeds
can. also be added to baked
goods, but be sure to.use ground
flax to get the most nutritional
value.
Q: Should I consider a tor-
tilla the equivalent ol'one slice
M ad? bread, tortillas do

count as grain products, since

calories. Tortillas' calorie con-
tent varies substantially de-
pending on size and fat content.
Corn tortillas are often the most
comparable in calories to bread,
with 50 to 65 calories each.
Flour tortillas typically range
from 110 to 180 calories each,
because they contain some
added fat and may be large
enough to contain 50 to 100
percent more carbohydrate as
well. b d

pare fat content listed on differ-
ent tortilla labels. And be aware
that if you choose super-size
tortillas, each wrap or burrito
may be more like two or three
standard servings of bread.


Q: What's the nutritional
difference between flax seed
and hemp seed?.
A: Both flax and hemp
seeds, and their oils, are pro-
moted as sources of the plant
form of omega-3 fat (alpha-
linolenic acid or ALA). It's not
converted as efficiently to the
forms of omega-3 fat (EPA and
DHA) which our body uses,
However, scientists generally
agree that including more

Retmal damage isn't the only
damage that can occur from sun
exposure. Cataracts, the result
of gradually accumulating dam-
age to the proteins of the lens,
can also be caused by sun dam-
age. This is often the case when
UV exposure occurs from an
early age. Pterygium, or tissue
growth on the whites of the
eyes that can compromise
vision, may also occur froni UV
exposure.
When it comes to cancer,
many believe that melanoma of
Uthe sPansis HAew n rre t
rare, melanoma can also occur
in the eyes
The best way to prevent sun-
related eye damage is to stay
out of the sun. Naturally this is
not possible at all times. In
these cases, sunglasses that
offer at least 95 percent UV
(blocking UVA and UVB radia-
tion) protection are vity to eye
heath. Also, choose a lint on
th$ huglasses@pt blocks' 80
percent of transmissible light,
but no more than 90 to 92 per-
cent of light, say eye experts.
Look for lenses that block visi-
ble blue light and are large and
closely fitted to the face.
One safety warning to heed,
especially when purchasing
sunglasses for children, is to
skip ordinary sunglasses that
have no UV protection. The
dark lenses may actually enable
the eye's pupil to dilate and let
in more harmful UV radiation.

effort to speak to the listening

Youth Football
By Paul Paris
Football fans, Mother Nature has shown her power once again.
Flag, Tiny Mite, Mitey Mite and Pee Wee were scheduled to play
at Lakewood Ranch Park Last Saturday. Due to six inches of rain
the prior two days, Manatee Parks & Recreation would not allow
the games to be played.
The Midget team played at Fishbawk againstthe Raittlers of
Tampa. Rattlers 18, Hardee 0.
Next week Hardee will be traveling to Tampa Hay Tech to play
the Pirates. This is the true test for all Hardee teams. The Pirates are

"Pop Warner is an international program operated for the ben-
efit of its youth participants. Since 1929, the program's philosophy
has been: Academics and Athletics Go Hand-in-Hund. At every
level, Pop Warner seeks to develop well-rounded young men and
women whty learn not only the fundamentals .of football, cheer-
leading and dance, but also the importance of education in an
atmosphere conducive to developing sound mind, body and char-
acter --- and having an enjoyable time along the way!
"The general objectives of Pop Warner are to inspire youth,
regardless of race, creed, religion or national origin, to practice the
ideals of sportsmanship, scholarship and physical fitness, as
reflected in the life of the late Glenn Scooie 'Pop' Warner.
"Pop Warner strives to make the game fun for all boys and
girls. The program stresses leaning lessons of value far beyond the
playing or spirit days of the boys and girls involved, such as: self-
discipline, teamwork, concentration, friendship, leadership and
good sportsmanship.
"With such goals in mind, and by providing an opportunity to
participate in an organized, supervised environment with emphasis
on nmaa mum safety ndepa ic ipatioonb op pWarnner offers young
The above shows the goals and philosophy of the Pop Warner
program'
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.

ARE YOU AN 'ASKABLE' PARENT?
Imagine the one day your child comes home and asks you,
pointblank, what sex means.
What do you say?
Well, there's alivays the avoidance reaction: "Go ask your
father (or mother)." or "We'll tell yott when you're old enough to
understand." Of course, "Where did you get that from?" is a possi-
bility.
Or, as difficult as it may sound, you could sit down with your
child and talk about it. This way, you'll be the one who tells him,
not the kid down the block.
This may be the most difficult topic for parents to discuss with
their children, but it is an important one. October is Let's Talk
Month. Let's Talk Month emphasizes the importance of communi-
cation between adults and y uth in helping young people develop
responsible attitudes and behaviors about sexuality.
Parents are the best educators, and teens want and need their
parents to be their primary sex educator. You can be an "askable"
parent, a caring parent and a wise counselor without grossing them
4 out or either of you being embarrassed. .
1 Teach@lessagmgrgs are everywhere: watch a movie. listen to
their music, when they tell you about a friend going through a
problem, give them your advice that way they will know your
values. .
Make sure you are honest, open and respectful. Be sure to have
a two-way conversation, not a one-way lecture. Resist the idea that
there should be just one conversation you know, "The Talk."
Think 18-year conversation.
All teens need large amounts of communication, guidance and
information about these issues; even if they sometimes don't
appear to be listening to what you have to say, trust me, they are.
If you have regular conversations, you won't worry so much
about making a mistake, because you'll know you'll al way s be able
to talk again another time. .
Talk with your kids.
Start now!

THE AROMA
The-temperature was 48 degrees. Bemg quite a cool morning
. for this ol' Florida girl, I pulled my Jacket tighter across my body
for extra warmth and smiled as I thought of all those left behind in
Hardee County who would be so envious of this pure.blessing of
winter weather on a July morning.
Feeling revitalized I inhaled deeply, indulging myself with the
simple pleasure of the smells of nature. Now, maybe I was experi-
encing htmger or perhaps it was simply my imagination playing
tricks on me, but there in the middle of nowhere came the smell of
warm french toast laden with an abundance of cinnamon, sprinkled
with powdered sugar and topped with thick sweet maple syrup.
Pangs of hunger growled from my stomach and my mouth
watered with the thought of devouring such a scrumptious treat as
I intently scanned the wilderness before me looking for signs of
lumberjacks or overnight campers.
Not a soul was in sight.
Continuing on my morning expeditidit was now almost virtu-
ally impossible, as the delightful aroma that filled my senses would
not allow me to continue in peace. Stopping dead in my tracks, my
eyes studied the beauty of the forest that surrounded me. The newly
planted trees stood in silent rows reminding me of schoolchildren
who were awaiting a visit to the principal's office, while the larger
pines swayed their dark green needles in the morning breeze, beck-
omng me to contmue on my way.
I couldn't help but laugh out loud as I realized how something
so simple had deceived me so easily. Feeling as if it were Christmas
in July, I enjoyed the pure delight of the pine forest and savored the
smell of the say that had filled me with such a devouring hunger for
a succulent breakfast.
Isn't it ironic how Satan creeps into our lives in the same way?
Satan puts temptation along our daily walk as he attempts to
tantalize our senses with the longings of this world, hoping that we
will be fooled into believing his lies of deceit.
Lord, give me the discernment to recognize the aroma of truth
that comes from You.
P.S. And, Lord, if it be Your will, wobld You lay it on
Mom's heart to suggest breakfast at "The Hole in the Wall" this
morning? They sure do serve up some mighty fine french toast.

HURRICANE BIRDS
It's still hurricane season, and Florida residents need to be pre-
pa red.
Between 1851 and 2006, the state was battered by 113 hurri-
canes, including 37 major storms measuring Category 3, 4 or 5. No
other state comes close when you consider the overall hurricane
landfalls and major storm totals.
flowever, hurricanes and tropical storms can bring m species
ofbis;ds we normally wouldn't have the opportunity to see.
"As Hurricane Ike passed to the south of us in September
2008, I saw birds at Crandon Beach you wouldn't normally see
from.shbre," said Roberto Torres, a birder from Miami. "There
were sooty shearwaters just off the breakers, and many common
and black terns resting on the beach. A few brown noddy were fly-
ing just over the shore, and a Pomarine jaeger made a pass over the
beach.
"But, the most amazing of all was the flock of about 15 white-
.winged scooters that came by right over the breakers," Torres said.
Unusual birds can also be found far inland after stortils. According
to Rex Rowan, a birder in Gainesville, coastal and ocean-going
birds.may be seen after nearly every hurricane.
"The pelagic (ocean-going) species that seems to turn up most
regularly is sooty tern. Others frequently seen melude common
terns and laughing gulls. Our inost exciting stray was a black-
catiped pete61 found in Newnan's Lake m September 2004 after
Hurricane Jeanne. However, the American oystercatcher that
Hurricatio Gordon blew onto Newnan's Lake in September 2000
was pretty mind-blowing as well," Rowlin said.
Other birds spotted in the Gainesville area after storms include
a Leach's storm petrel and a red phalarope that came in after
Tropical Storm Fay in August 2008.
If you're thinking about chasing these "hurricane birds," consider
a few tips from those birders who have experience:
First of all, don't even think about heading to the coast. That's
where the worst damage is. It will probably be impossible getting
onto the islands. Security officers probably will not let you in, and
fallen wires and trees will illso be a barrier.
Besides, those storm-blown birds will likely move quickly
back out to sea.
Also, don't attempt to drive while it's still dark. There is the
temptation to be sit a lake before dawn if the hurricane's eye passed
near the lake overnight. Fallen trees and downed wires don't have
lights, and you can't expect utility crews to have cleared away trees
before daylight.
Find as large a lake as you can near the eye of .the hurricane.
Birds head for large bodies of water, or even wet parking lots that
look like water. Get to the lakes as soon as it's safe after the storm
passes. The birds often leave quickly.
Enjoy the birding opportunity, but remember to be safe after a
storm. Don't take chances in your quest to add to your life list.
As destructive as these storms are, taking the opportunity to
watch the rare visitors they herd our way can help us turn the expe-
rience around and cope with the stress. -
I have found the best way to give advice to your children
la to find out what they want and then advise them to dO

What is the test to measure cholesterol levels? The blood test
to measure the cholesterol levels is called a lipid profile. You can
have this test done at your doctor's office. If you are 20 years of
age or older, check your cholesterol at least every five years. Your
doctor may test you more often if your cholesterol levels are high,
What do your cholested numbers mean? A total cholesterol
less than 200 mg/dL is ident Strive to keep it at that level. Anything
higher may need some lifoayle changes to prevent medical inter-
vention. LDL (or Lousy) cholesterol less thhn 100 mg/dL is ideal.
Keep it low! HDL (or Healthy) cholesterol 40 mg/dL or higher is
ideal. The higher, the better!
How can I lower high blood cholesterol? With a combination
of a heart-healthy diet, physical activity and weight management,
you may be able to lower your high blood cholesterol by 20 to 30
percent. To have a heart healthy diet, cut back on foods high in sat-
urated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol. Start eating heart-healthy
foods by making a few changes at a time. Eat more of these foods:
Fat-free milk, cheese, and yogurt
Fruits, vegetables, and whole grains
Fish
TGrkey and chicken without skin
Lean cuts of meat
Beans and lentils
Corn (instead of flour) tortillas
Plan to start incorporating 30 to 60 minutes of moderate phys-
ical activity on most days. If you are only able to incorporate it two
or three days a week, that is better than not at all. Some weeks you
may be able to do more, so it will average to about three times a
week. Make this your goal.
The third lifestyle change you can make to lower cholesterol
is to aim for a healthy weight. Manya times, if you start cutting back

CHOLESTEROL EDUCATION
Have you had your cholesterol checked lately?
If not, it might be a good idea to do so to know if some
lifestyle changes are in order. When it comes to cholestead, it's
good to know your numbers. High blood cholesterol increases your
risk for heart disease and heart attack, and lowering it decreases
that risk. It's that simple.
So, September is a great time to learn about high blood cho*
lesterol, especially if you are among the 65 million Americans who
have this condition. Did you know that with a combination of a
heart-healthy diet, physical activity and weight management, you
may be able to lower your high blood cholesterol by 20 to 30 per-
cent?
What is cholesterol? Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance
found in your body.
Why is high blood cholesterol bad for your heart? Your body
makes all the cholesterol you need to be healthy. When you eat
foods high in saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol, your body can
make too much cholesterol. Over time, this extra cholesterol can
clog your arteries. This increases your chances of having a heart
attack or stroke.
What is good and bad cholesterol? HDL is "good cholesterol."
It helps clean fat and cholesterol from your blood vessels. Just
remember the H in HDL for Healthy, and the Higher it is, the bet-
ter. It protects against heart disease. LDL is "bad cholesterol." It
carries cholesterol to your blood vessels, clogging them like rust in

This week, the Wildcats take

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats on
Friday night in Wauchula
moved to a 3-0 record with an
impressive 21-17 win over pre-
viously undefeated and 2-A No.
4-ranked Frbstproof.
The 2-A Wildcats defeated
the Bulldogs with a strong run-
ning game, an inspired defense
and steady special teams play.
Hardee's high-risk option
offense produced about 300
yards rushing and no yards
passing, going 0 for 3 with an
interception.
A lot of penalties hampered
the Frostproof offense, although
Bulldog star Mickell Robey
was able to score two touch-
downs.
For the Cats Jarrious Lindsey
gained 112 yards on 23 carries
and scored one TD. Jake Mayer
had 13 strong carries for 101
yards and a TD. Touted quarter-
back Ezayi Youyoute gained 78
yards on 10 carries and scored
two TDs.
Key parts of the game hap-
pened in the second quarter
when Hardee, trailing 10-7,
mounted a 90-yard scoring
drive and took the lead, and as
the first half ended the
Bulldogs' effort to retake the
lead stalled at the Wildcat three-
yard line.
Wildcat head coach Tim
Price after the game said, "Our
kids are hard-nosed and never
give up. We will be in any ball
game this year. We play hard as
a team."


Price praised Hardee line-
backers Tyler Alden, Antjuan
Jones and Quinton Carlton for
helping contain the high-pow-
ered Frostproof offense.
This Friday at 7:30 the Cats
take on the Red Devils in Avon
Park. The Devils upset.an over-
confident Hardee team two
years ago, but Hardee won last
year.
Against Frostproof Keshaun
Rivers returned the opening
kick for Hardee to the Cats' 16,
an advance of 13. Youyoute
kept.for 10 yards after a short
Bulldog penalty. Robey
returned a Hardee punt 10 yards
to the Frostproof 344
The cat defense forced a
punt, and Rivers returned the
ball two yards to the Cat 32,
where Hardee began 68-yard
scoring drive. Lindsey ran for 3,
and Mayer gained 10. Youyoute
ran around right end, fumbled
but, recovered the ball at the
Bulldog 37. Mayer skirted left
and end for 19 yards. Youyoute
gained 7 after a Bulldog penal-
ty, then Mayer ran 6 yards
through a big hole over left
guard for a TD. Martin Vega
kicked the extra point, and
Hardee led 7-0 with 4:53 left.
Frostproof theri started a
drive from its 27 that ended in a
24-yard field goal by Pedro
Ramello on the first play of the
second quarter.
Rivers returned the kickoff to
the Hardee 27. Mayer gained 3,
and Youyoute ran for 5. Mayer
ran, fumbled but Hardee recov-
ered at the Cat 38 for a first

THE NIGHTMARE
It was an awful nightmare.
All was darkness and confusion, screams and shrieks. Up
ahead there was a small light where a huge crowd struggled and
fought. Who could tell enemies from friends?
Then, against the sky, a cross was raised. The man on it twist-
ed in pain. Who was it? Jesus all over again? Was this a reliving of
the crucifixion, some gigantic Easter pageant?
Those behind and beside me rushed me forward, lifted me
until I was held up face-to-face with the cruficified man.
What a horror it was myself. And all those around me, hold-
ing me up, holding the cross up every face I looked at was my
own!
What kind of a bizarre death was this? Jesus dying on a cross,
that I could understand. But me? What was I doing there?
Didn't Jesus die this death for all of us, to take away sin and
:::nu I n and f vteon a ch Psa ec Wouldn't it be sacrile-
But wait. Didn't Jesus say, "If you would follow Me, you must
deny yourself and take up your cross"? He was talking to His dis-
ciples and it was plain that He was referring to their cross, not His!
The purpose of the cross was to show what lengths God would
go to save every man on earth.
My cross is personal. As I embrace it, I demonstrate my love
for Him. I tell flim that I want to join His mighty cause, regardless
of the cost. And the yielding to Him of my stubbornflesh is my sig-
nature on the agreement.
Conclusion: I must deny myself and take up my cross because
. He will supply all the grace I need to do it!

gratulate her on this festive
occasion.
Chaos reigned for a bit as
cameras started snapping and
calls were made to "get in the
picture with her," but the after-
noon soon settled down to calm
munching of snacks and sharing
old memories. The honoree
stayed busy greeting and talk-
Ing with everyone, almost to the
point of exhaustion.
Toward the end, her five
great-grandchildren circled in
front of her and honored her by
saying in unison, "May the
Lord make His face shine upon
you," singing "Happy Birth-
day," and handing her five pink
roses.
Cards were filled out and
signed by the guests, who left
special words of memories for
her to enjoy later. Amazingly,
when the day was done and she
was home going through her
cards, she asked daughter Julia,
"Was the cake good?"
She was so busy visiting with
everyone, she never got any
birthday cake! But she said, "It
was the happiest day of my
life."


from Ona, Jean and Orville
Triebwasser, and Lois Tomlin-
son, and even clerks who
always help her with banking
issues began arriving,
Many of the guests, like
Calvin and Milton Roberts, had
attended New Zion Baptist
Church with Mazie Ketner back
in the 1950s, and enjoyed the
church reunion.
One hundred thirteen guests
were invited, and on a rainy
nasty day in September, at least
80 people showed up to honor
her on this very special occa-
sion.
Her son, David, and his fami-
ly decorated the hall and served
the food. There was also a
sideshow presentation of the
photos "stolen" from her own
albums and enlarged for the
enjoyment of the. honoree and
her guests.
When she arrived at the hall,
it didn't take her too. long to
realize that the "churchwide fel-
lowship" was really a surprise
birthday party for her! She
began hugging people and hol-
lering loudly as each new per-
son showed up to greet and con-


On Saturday, Sept. 12, the
New Zion Baptist Church
Fellowship Hall was decked out
in green and white tablecloths
with a small bouquet of pink
carnations centered along each
table. A punch bowl, a huge
cake and platters of food were
awaiting the arrival of the guest
of honor.
Mazie Ketner's son, David,
had lured .her back to Florida
from Little Rock, Ark., where
she presently resides with her
daughter, Julia, by telling her
she needed to celebrate her
birthday at his home so all of
his children and grandchildren
could be with her on this special
day
The entire plan was a ruse
concocted by her daughter,
Julia Ketner, to throw her the
"party of her life."
The honoree had gotten a lit-
tle anxious because she thought
there was supposed to be party
in Lakeland on the day before
her birthday, but nobody was
giving her much information
about that gathering. "Why
don't they call and tell us when
to be there?" she complained.


She invited her sister-in-law to
this supposed party, knowing it
would be right for her to be
there!
. Even Stephen Darly, pastor
of New Zion Baptist Church,
helped pull off the surprise by
announcing the birthday cele-
bration t wo weeks prior to
Ketner's arrival in Florida.
Then, on the first Sunday she
attended her own familiar coun-
try church, he simply invited
everyone, including "Miss
Mazie," to a churchwide fel-
lowship, where "the refresh-
ments had already been taken
care of!"
Ketner's nieces and nephews
from Georgia began to arrive
first, followed quickly by
church friends, two remaining
siblings, Mary Tomlinson of
Orlando and Jack McDaniel
from Hampton, and their chil-
dren.

without its own building offi-
clal is sending a message of
"the lights are off" on building
projects. He said local Realtors
and builders are struggling.
He said the commission was
"looking at trees instead of the
forest" and was "impeding the
construction industry and the
economy. More projects will
help the county's tax base.
Johnson said many residents
do not want to have anything
built, and said, We need a
building official to stand on his
own but assist people and fol-
low guidelines.


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Commis-
sion on Thursday voted for
County Manager Lex Albritton
to hire a building official at the
request of the local building
industry.
Brent Driskell of the Hardee
County Builders Association
felt the county was losing some
opportunities for growth by hot
having a building official on
staff. Currently a Polk County
building official comes to
Hardee for two half-days a
week to assist in requests for
permits.
Also speaking in support
were Rick Justice, president of
First National Bank of Wau-
chula; Vanessa Hernandez,
president of the local Chamber
of Commerce; Realtor Gary
Delatorre; Benny Hash, build-
ing contractor; Grady Johnson;
and Donald Samuels.
The motion to hire was made
by Commissioner Nick Tim-
merman and seconded by
Bobby Ray Smith. It passed
without opposition. Another
motion was made to take the

Carlton Ranch team place sec-
ond. Stevens Land &' Cattle
won the team doctoring event
and placed second in wild-cow
milking.
Most events involve 4-5 team
members, such as team sorting,
double-mugging or steer
wrestling, team branding, trailer
loading, wild-colt riding, relay
race, team doctoring, and wild-
cow milking.
They all offer brone riding.
Matt Carlton and Joey Drake
are teams' members who brave
getting on the back of the buck-
ing broncos. For the female team
members, there may be barrel
racing. And for the little ones,
there's the ever-popular mutton
busting' or sheep riding.
In addition to the Florida
qualifying event sponsored by
the Hardee County Cattlemen's
Association, a ranch rodeo is
held every year as part of the
Hardee County Fair.


By KATHY GREGG
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Everyday activities on a cat-
tle ranch are now used in com-
petitions known as "ranch
rodeos.
Hardee County will be repre-
sented by two teams the
Carlton Ranch and Stevens
Land & Cattle which have
qualified for the Florida
Cattlemen's Association State
Finals, set for this Friday and
Saturday at the Silver Spurs
Rodeo Arena in Kissimmee.
The participants are real
working cowboys who use their
everyday skills to compete
against each other.
The Florida Cattlemen's
Association events require that
teams consist of four men and
one-woman.
The Carlton Ranch team is
made up of Dale Carlfon and
his cousin, Matt Carlton, Trae
Adams, Kevin Sullivan and


Jamie Rewis. They qualified at
the DeSoto County event held
in May at the Arcadia Rodeo
Grounds,
The Stedens Land & Cattle
team consists of Charlie
Stevens and son Charles Robert
Stevens, Joey Drake, and Billy
and Sage Adams. They quali-
fied at the Okeechobee County
event held in July at the
Okeechobee AgriCivic Center.
Both teams rode in the
Hardee County Cattlemen's
Ranch Rodeo sit the Cattlemen's
Arena in July and the Working
Ranch Cowboys Association
rodeo held over Labor Day
weekend in Arcadia. The
WRCA holds its national imals
annually in November in
Amprillo, Texas. Last year,
Stevens Land & Cattle won the
Florida event and was the first
Florida team to ever go on to
Amarillo.
This year's event saw the

Stumn The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, a September to remember is in the books
and what a month in college football. As the Swami stated before,
preseason polls are based on last year's teams, voters with agendas
and sportswriters who sometimes favor their teams. Reality sets in
by October.
Am I right.Miami, Penn St., FSU, Ole Miss and others? The
parity in today's game makes every weekend something special as
teams go down to unranked teams in a manner old fans from the
'50s and '60s cannot comprehend.
The Gators dispelled any talk of upset due to the health of the
players. The game was over after the first quarter. The victory over
UK was the 23rd in a row over the "Mildcats." The big question is
the health of Tim Tebow. He suffered a concussion and spent the
night in a hospital. Reports this morning sound encouraging. The
Gators are off next weekend. Hopefully, the time off will bring a
speedy recovery to the Heisman QB. The Gators travel to LSU in
two weeks.
USF coach Jim Leavitt, after the Bulls beat FSU, got a little
cArried away saying "It changes history." Come on, coach. Sure it
was a good win, but the Bulls have beaten West Virginia when they
were ranked second in the polls.
The Bulls beat Auburn, an SEC team, at Auburn. This win,
although significant in Florida to football fans, was a win over an
ACC team that pulled out a victory over Jacksonville St. in the
fourth quarter. It was hardly a win against Big East rivals. The
Bulls are supposed to win against the lower conferences aren't
they, Coach Leavitt?
The Canes are back! After winning at Blacksburg, they will
pound Oklahoma and walk through the rest of the schedule to the
National Championship. So sayeth the Canes fans as they preach
the gospel according to Shannon. -Oops, "Beamered" again in
Blacksburg. Just for your information, Miami rushed for 59 yards
against the Hokies. Darius Marshall, of Marshall University,
rushed for 106 yards against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg earlier
this month. Yep, the Canes are back.
ConferenceUSA had an interesting weekend. Houston has
grabbed the national spotlight with back-to-back wins over
Oklahoma St. and Texas Tech of the Big 12 Conference. The 17th
ranked team is sure to move up this week. Cougars QB Case
Keenum has passed for 1,155 yards in just three games in 2009. He
leads all passers in the conference while Darius Marshall, of
Marshall, leads all rushers with 498 yards rushing after a 206-yard
performance against Memphis. The conference overall is having -a
solid year so far with Marshall, Tulsa and Southern Miss all sport-
ing 3-1 records at this juncture. UCF is 2-2 and will host Memphis
this week.
The Buccaneers could be approaching the 1976-77 losing-
streak records. The offensive line is horrible and the receivers
couldn't catch the flu in a quarantined room with 100 patients. The
defense is not what Tampa Bay is known for, either. Looks like a
long season with a tough schedule.
1.) Colorado at West Virginia: Mountaineers had a week off to
prepare for a revenge game with the Buffs after the "Great Auburn
Giveaway." Putting up 509 yards and 30 points at Auburn only to
turn it over six times in handing Auburn the game will be put out
of minds with a lopsided win. WVU 49 Colorado 16.
2.) Pitt at Louisville: Panthers were 3-0 and lost to NC State
last week. They should come back strong after that inexcusable
performance. Pitt 34 Louisville 17.
3.) Oklahoma at Miami: Normally one would say no contest
for the Sooners but consider how poor pass defense is in the Big
12. Canes at home just might pass over the perennially overrated
Sooners, who will be without Sam Bradford. Upset Special. The


Big 12 takes another hit. Miami 38 Oklahoma 34. '
4.) FSU at Boston College: FSU gets back to basics and wins.
BC took overtime to beat Wake last weekend. Surely a fired up
FSU team is better than Wake? FSU 31 BC 23.
5.) Michigan at Michigan State: Spartans upset the rivals who
come in 4-0 but have played four teams any SEC team would have
blown out as well. Michigan State 37 Michigan 31.
6.) USF at Syracuse: Orange are improved. At 2-2 but should
be 3-1, Syracuse is putting up pomts. The Carrier Dome will be
loud. Hopefully, no letdown by the Bulls after the FSU win. USF
31 Syracuse 24.
7.) East Carolina at Marshall: Thundering Herd his home-
coming this weekend. The Pirates will walk the plank into another
defeat as (he Herd runs its record to 4-1.Darius Marshall leads the
nation in rushing per game. Marshall 30 ECU 21.
8.) Alabama at Kentucky: Back-to-back losses for UK.
Schedule makers were not kind to the boys from Lexington but
that's life in the SEC. Alabama 42 Kentucky 14.
9.) Cincinnati at Miami: Long-time rivalry in Ohio that the
Bearcats have now outgrown in reality. The ranked Cincy team
should have no problem here. Cincinnati 45 Miami 13.
10.) LSU at Georgia: Dawgs at home will grab the headlines
with an upset. Georgia 34 LSU 27.
11.) Mississippi at Vanderbilt: Rebels bounce back after the
USC debacle. Perhaps they were not as good as the ranking?
Mississippi 34 Vandy 14.
12.) Auburn at Tennessee: Auburn will put up enough points
to win and remain unbeaten. Kiffin will have plenty to say as
usual Maybe he should.forget Meyer and move on? Auburn 23
Tennessee 17.
13.) Southern Cal at Cal: The two over-ranked teams from out
West meet in what was supposed to be a big game. Now, it's just
another game. USC 34 Cal 31.
14.) Clemson at Maryland: Terps are just bad. Fridge may be
on the hot seat. Tigers will bounce back from TCU loss. Clemson
27 Maryland 10..
15.) Memphis at UCF: Should be a low-scoring affair. UCF
20 Memphis 17.
16.) Tampa at Washington: Bucs can pull this off. Skins lost
to Detroit. Could be a battle for the first-round draft pick. Tampa
24 Washington 20.
17.) Buffalo at Miami: If Pennington is out, it's over for the
Fish. Buffalo 27 Miami 14.
18.) Tennessee at Jacksonville: Jags won the first game by a
Florida team but don't look for another one in this game. Tennessee
30 Jacksonville 17.
19.) Seattle at Indianapolis: Peyton Manning is hard to beat at
home. Colts 35 Seattle 21.-
20.) Baltimore at New England: Randy Moss needs a Super
Bowl ring. Pats 24 Ravens 20.

A bone to the dog is not charity. Charity is the bone
shared with the dog, when you are just as hungry as the
dog.

Your items are just as interesting to the folks in Hardee County
as those medals were to the residents at State Road 64 West back
in 1955, and they continue to be cherished by their granddaughter
today. Clarence and Anna Belle Rickels may have lost all their pos-
sessions in that fire, but their memories remained alive to be hand-
ed down to their family. My grandparents had a lifetime of cher-
ished items that could have added much to Cracker Trail Museum.
Won't you consider sharing some of yours with us?

Greetings from Fort Greed
Sherman and I went to the
hunting camp near Wrights-
ville, Ga., Friday to get equip-
ment from the woods. Sher-man
has decided he will fish more
and hunt less this year. We
drove on 441, and the golden-
rods were the most beautiful I
believe I have ever seen. There
were just fields of them, and
every now and then a field of
black-eyed Susans. I don't
know if they really were more
beautiful this year or as I
"mature" I just notice them
more.
We returned to Valdosta on
Saturday to attend a Class of
'55 reunion supper. We had a
super time, and long-time
friends Sherry and Ralph Cross
from Dothan, Ala., stayed in the
same motel. After visiting at the
reunion with other classmates,
we enjoyed breakfast together
Sunday morning before we all
had to go separate ways. *
After driving to central
Georgia in the truck, Sherman
and I really appreciated the joy
of traveling in an RV. We were
tired when we got home and
just do not like staying in
motels! The gas was only $2.18
in Douglas, though, so this was
one good thing!
John and Essie Deere have
returned from a wonderful trip
to the National Quartet Con-
vention in Louisville, Ky.
They enjoyed seeing Libby
Perry \vin the female vocalist of
the year award. All at Fort
Green Baptist were happy to
hear of this award, as Libby is
the sister of our recent revival
evangelist, Randy Perry.
Judy Bargeron has been sick
with whatever is going around.
Casey Powell was treated for
strep throat. This illness just
seems to go though all the rel-
atives before it finally goes on
its way.
Some of the Fort Green 4-H
members went to Sebring Sun-
day afternoon to choose rabbits
for their 4-H project. Among

the ones going were Kaylee
Hogenauer, balton Richey,
Brian Yake and Brianna Waters.
Hunter Davis did not get to go
on the trip but a rabbit was pur-
chased for him. Hopefully they
sill will be able to show them at
the fair in February. Kaylee
Hogenauer said her rabbit was
chestnut in color and she had
named her rabbit Cherry
Blossom.
Mr. and Mrs. Leo Blink were
able to attend church services
this past Sunday. He has been
out with his hand, and while it
is nowhere near well, it is much
improved. He is taking therapy-
Everyone was happy to see
them. Arthur Womack is in the
hospital in Bradenton. Mickey
Murphy had surgery recently
and is in rehab in Sarasota.
Jerry Budd is having some
health problems. Please remem-
ber all these in prayer.
Bryant and Marnet Waters
attended Fort Green last Sunday
night. Their granddaughter,
Brianna Waters, sang a song
about "We and God" and did a
terrific job. Bryant said they
had been on an Ahiskan cruise,
and while it was wonderful the
six-hour flight out to Seattle
was not!
Bobby Bragg has c anged
jobs and is now selling cars! I
told him he had the pleasing
personality to make a good
salesniin and the work ethic.
He is at the I'hevrolet place,
where the late gay Silverman
sold many a car! obby said
since Alan Jay owns a different
variety of car dealerships, he
can sell any brand! Best wishes,
for Bobby in this new endeavor.
Faye Davis entertained her
Wednesday night junior high
class with a pool party and food
Saturday. They had a great time
and some were blistered Sun-
day morning. Lots of the par-
ents came, so it was a great time
of getting to know people bet-

KEEP HISTORY ABLAZE
On Dec. 16, 1955, a retired Hardee County couple locked the
front door of their modest frame home in the country and drove to
Wauchula for a visitation at Bryant Coker's Funeral Home. The
. remnants of the smoldering logs burning in the fireplace caused
just enough light in the living room to faintly distinguish the bright-
ly colored Christmas packages stacked neatly under the small pine
tree.
gr was cold outside, but not as cold as these retired farmers
from Ohio were accustomed to during the Christmas season.
Nevertheless, it would be nice to return to a warm home and settle
in for an evening together.
It was only a short drive from Wauchula to the still unsettled
area of State Road 64 west of town. The 40 acres of property,
equally divided on the north and south side of the highway, had
been purchased from Willard and Katie Williams less than a year
previously.
That vision of a warm house to return to soon faded into obliv-
ion as the couple approached the curve in the road that would lead
them into the driveway flanked by Australian pines.
The house was in the last stages of a roaring fire that had start-
ed only a short time before while the couple was not at home. It
would 14tter be learned that the fire was caused by the smoldering
coals in the fireplace that qtlickly ignited the wooden walls of their
home; a home that held not only the living essentials but memories
of their 14-year marriage.
While losing all their housekeeping items was devastating, it
was due to the quick thinking and actions of a very elderly couple
living on the property next door that salvaged many memories
stored in a very small travel trailer next to the flaming building.
The McCowans were residents of a very small house located
on property owned by T.C. Hart, and the "mister" worked cattle for
Hart. 11pon noticing .the flames, this elderly couple rushed next
door and pulled the travel trailer away from the burning house, thus
salvaging a part of their neighbors' belongings.
The following.days were spent sifting through the burned rub-
ble for anything of significance that may have endured the heat.
Those items that were deemed important included miscellaneous
coins and, in particular, commemorative medals given out to atten-
dees at the 1927 American Legion Conference held in Paris. Other
items included medals representing the 40&8 organization that
were earned during World War I, now completely charred by the
fire and obviously devoid of the colorful ribbon that was once
attached to them,
Probably the most cherished items retrieved from the rubble
were the navigator's wings that once adorned the uniform and the
cap medallion of their oldest son, Jim, who was killed during
World War II.
One can only imagine a lanky 57-year-old man in khaki
clothes taking through the remains of a building that once was his
home for these cherished memories of such a longtime ago.
All of us have items that spark memories of our lives in
Hardee County. Some may even have some of those same types of
World War I or World War II memorabilia tucked away in a chest.
There may be quilts, farming implements, antique fans or even pic-
tures. Those cherished items of yours are just as important to you
as they were to that retired couple who were fortunate enough to
have caring neighbors who saved some of their memorable items.
Cracker Trail Museum is interested in your memories. We are
interested in your cherished possessions of long ago.

players also have an automatic
book-marking system that
makes getting back to your
place less troublesome.
"We would like to own more
titles, but out- budget will not
allow us at the momerit. We are
always' looking for donations
that might help us reach that
goal," says library ,Director
Patti Lang.


Of the 18 titles the library
owns, all are bestsellers, both
fiction and non- fiction.
"In the future we would like
to own some young adult and
children's books on Playaways
as well," adds Lang.
For more information on the
Playaways, you can visit
www.playaway.com or head on
down to the public library and
check one out for yourself.

For The Herald-Advocate
In life, who doesn't want an
"easy" button? Well, for the
folks who like to read but don't
have enough time, life just got
easier,
The Hardee County Public
library has purchased 18 hew
devices called "Playaways."
Now you can listen to a book
while driving, exercising, cook-
ing oa vari y of other tas sd
readers who now have trouble
seeing the words on a page.
These Playaways are digital
audio players, reloaded with a
book that cannot be erased or
duplicated. The new gadgets
can be compared to a miniature
Walkman; each comes with a
single set of ear buds and bat-
teries.
To check out one of these
contraptions you will need a
library card. Each loan will be
good for two weeks.
These devices are highly rec-
ommended for seriior citizens,
. the visually impaired and those
who are bedridden. The con-
trols are easy to use and memo-
rize, and will allow the user to
quickly pavigate through a

gn this age of high speed internet and social networking, the world
ALhas become small indeed. We can converse with someone across
the ocean or find an old high school Ikiend just by turning on the.
computer. The power of a "search englae" surpasses the speed of
any vehicle of transportation! We are rarely out of touch with
people, even if we are home alone.
Despite this ability to instantly connect, we can still feel empty
and alone. Maybe we need to divert our focus fkom without to look
within ourselves...within our hearts. Before the days of Instant
communkation, when we were far more isolated than today, we
learned to look within ourselves for comfbri and assurance.
If you are feethsg alone, try connecthis with God. He Is as near as
your heartbeat and can give you inner codidence. Won't you visit
God'

FROM
THE
SOWER
as.cr.aelA we DD

A little girl came to church
crying. What's wrong
asked the pastor.
"The Lord's gone!" sobbed
the girl. "I dialed 'The Lord'
on the telephone and the oper-
ator said, 'There's nobody at
that number.'"
Cheer up, little girl. The
Lord isn't one. You're sim-
ply on the wrong line.
He promises, 'Call upon
Me, and I will answer Thee.
You can call upon the Lord
when you have a sudden need
and receive a swift answer.
You'll always find the Lord
waiting to answer your call.
And you'll never get a busy
signal.
The Living Bible says, "The
earnest prayer of a righteous
man has great power and
wonderful results!"

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
God-of-the-Angel-Armies
speaks, "Exactly as I plann-
ed, it will happen. Following
My blueprints, it will take
shape . This is the plan,
planned for the whole earth,
and this is the hand that will
do it, reaching into every
nation. God-of-the-Angel-
Armies has planned it. Who
could ever cancel such
plans? His is the hand that's
reached out. Who could
brush it aside?"
Isaiah 14:24,26-27 (ME)
