Opening Of
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Recycling is free and fun.
And, it's become even easier
now that a second, more central
drop-off center has opened,
Sophy Bonjokian at Hardee
County Disposal Inc., 127
Townsend St., Wauchula, an-
nounced the opening of the new
recyclables center at the busi-
ness just off U.S. 17 North, a
block north of Ace Hardware.
Just turn east off U.S. 17 North
onto East Townsend Street and
it's less than a block in on the
left. It is open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
weekdays.
In order to prevent contami-
nation and loss of the entire
load of Incyclables, there are
some simple things people need
to do.
First, the recyclables need to


be separated, according to clear
or colored glass; flattened card-
board; newspapers .and maga-
zines, junk mail and shredded
papers; aluminum/steel cans,
tin foil and pie phites; and clear
plastic, such as in milk jugs,
liter soda bottles and water bot-
tles (not herbicide bottles such
as Roundup containers).
For instance, a clear ketchup
bottle or soda can which hasn't
been rinsed out could contam-
inate the whole load and doom
it to placement in expensive
landfill space.
The caps and bottles must be
removed from glass, aluminum
and plastic containers because
the caps are of a different mate-
rial, which can't be mixed with
the container.
For the same reason, wet or
-dirty newspapers and cardboard


can contaminate a load.
Similarly, waxed' cardboard' as
in cereal and food boxes, or
ones crusted with food or
garbage are not good for recy-
cling.
A list of recyclable do's and
don't is included. For ques-
tions, call Bonjokian or office
assistant Amanda Graham at
773-6079, the county landfill at
773-5089, or go to www.hard-
eecounty.net and follow the
leads for landfill information.
The landfill, at 685 Airport
Road, about three miles east of
Wauchula off CR 636 (East
. Main Street) has always had
recycling in addition to its free
quarterly hazardous waste dis-
posal days. Items such as news-
papers, glass, aluminum and
metal, lead acid batteries, fluo-

The Hardee County state legislative delegation will hold a
meeting at the County Commission chambers on Tuesday, Dec. 1,
at 10 a.m. to hear requests for the upcoming Florida Legislature.
There is opposition building for the proposed regional landfill
to be located in the southeastern part of Hardee Courity. The 300-
acre landfill would accept garbage from Hardee County and many
a south of heie. < *
It"wofild 'lid 166ated'iiblir 10-MiffGladefilDOffe'Rohdatid '
drewsv61e ITolid.The landfill woiild bring revenues to the county
in dumping fees of over $1 million annually. Do neighbors want
this landfill? Not likely. Would the plastic liners ever break and
cause contamination of the area's water supply? That would be a
huge problem.
The Hardee Planning and Zoning Board will hold a public
hearing on the matter Thursday, Nov. 5, at 6 p.m. at the County
Commission chambers at 412 West Orange Street in Wauchula.
The County Commission will hold a public hearing on the pro- -
posal on Thursday, Nov. 19, at 8:35 a.m. The total Crewsville
Groves tract is 1,620 acres.

There is an interesting letter to the editor elsewhere in this
issue about the proposed landfill.
For such a major land use change I think the county should
take weeks and months to research this project, looking at the pros
and cons. I think setting a Nov. 5 Planning and Zoning meeting and
a Nov. 19 County Commission meeting on the matter might be a
little hasty, if final decisions areto be made.
However, it is certainly a good idea to look at this possible
project. The cou'rity getting royalties of over $1 million a year and
not having to expand the county lahdfilt sound like good benefits.
It sounds doubtful to me that even a double plastic liner under
a landfill would never spring leaks. There are many cheinicals an
household garbage that over time could attack the plastic kners.
How about moles or lightning strikes of shoddy workmanship or
some faulty plastic or sealers? If a 300-acre landfill.sealed with
plastic liners ever did break it could be devastating to the area's
environment.
Prisons, power plants and landfills are NIMBY (not in my
backyard) projects. They are necessary, however, but location is so
important. These upcoming public hearings should be very inter
.esting.
We humans created a lot- of garbage. In the old day many
homeowners used to burn their garbage in their backwards.
Does Hardee.County, with a population of about 28,000 peo~
ple, want to accept garbage from milboas of south Florida resi-,
dents? Will the benefits exceed the risks? That is a decision facing
the Planning and Zoning Board and the County Commission.

The state has been doing a great job of resurfacitig Hwy. 17

evening.
This is Schofield's second
attempt to win a seat on the
Town Commissidn. She failed
in her- October 2008 bid to
unseat Commissioner Juan
Otero. Now, she challenges
Belcher.
Schofield has three years of
college education and is a state-
certified corrections officer. She
is employed at Hardee Correc-
tional Institution,
"I would like to see changes
ih the faces, new ideas," she
said of her push to win a seat on
the commission. "This time, I'm
more into the campaign. I want
to see what I can do for the
town. I want to help the town."
If elected, Sbhofield said she
will at first "sit back a little bit,
listen, and learn."
Belcher, 71, of 3456 Palmetto
St., maintains her ininocence
and asks for the public's sup-
port. "I'd like to stay son the
commission. There's a lot of
stuff l'd.1ike to see donef f or the

13ut Roger Grpen, wh6 filed
the* complaint against Selehbr
on dept 11, 2006, doesit differ-
ently.
He said Tuesday evening that
he had not yet received a copy
of the governor's executive
order bgt that he welcomed its
release. "She's going to run for
off ce again, and we need to get
her sorry btitt out of there."
Green said Belcher "has been
taking money from town em-
ployees for years, and she didn't
report anything." Green also
said of Belcher's tenure on the
Towo Commission, "She has
not helped the town. She's been
in there since 1996 . and she
has not helped the towd." ,
The signed case settlement
agreement eclipes his claim,
saying Belcher took money
from firiner police chief David
Scheid and public works em-
ployee Henry H4nn. Further,
she received a gift from other
town employees, but did pot
report it ps required by state
law.
Belcher on Tuesday night
. again said she never received
any,.money from Scheid or
Hann, and that she did not even
know, some town employees
had donated money toward her
utility bill, whigh she was "pay-
ing down" herself at the time.
She repeated that in no way
could she possibly afford to
defend herself in the claims
against her. She just wanted it
all to end, Belcher said.
Belcher explained that during
the time frame in question, she
was oin throu h foreclosure


proceedings on her house and
that her husband was very ill. In
fact, she stated a state ethics
investigator conducted an inter-
view with her inside his car in
the parking lot of Florida
Hospital Heartland in Sebring.
Her husband has since died,
Scheid was arrested on Jani 4
of 2006 and fired by.the town in

everything but win.

Marisa Shivers. The match
tonight is at Lake Placid.

contend to see who will ad-
vance. The winner goes to
DeSoto. on Tuesday night to
play the top seed, either Sara-
sota Cardinal Mooney or
DeSoto, which were tied at the
end of last week.
Hardee played at Avon Park
last Ttiesday. "We only missed a
few serves, but they were in
crucial spots. We just couldn't
break through. They served
very well and we didn't pass
very well," said Coach Ken
Leupold as he summed up the


match.
Hardee lost 25-22, 25-23, 25-
23, with good effort on all sides.
LeCreshia Carlton had four
serves in a row in game one,
while Shivers had two series of
three for six good serves. In
game two, Eryn Mahoney had
four good serves, and in game
three, it was Carlton and
Mahoney with good service.
On Thursday, Hardee jour-
neyed up to Fort Meade. The
girls dominated the first game
25-19, with Lacey Garza get-
ting two series of four serves,
including the final four.Yesenia
Garza added four good serves.
Game two was different, as
momentum swung and, Fort
Meade won 25-23. In game
three, Hardee lost focus and lost
25-6. .
In the final game, Fort Meade
jumped out to a 12-2 advantage,
but Harded rallied to make it a
21-19 game before Fort Meade
was able to put it away 25-21.
Carlton had six good serves.
Other varsity players are Shiv-


ers, Vanessa Garza, Brenda Za-
mora, Meghan Graham, Sarah
Buyers, Daisha Blandin and
Summer Palmer.
The junior varsity split its
matches last week. They lost at
Avon Park 25-17 and 25-14 (the
JV play the best of three games,
while the varsity is the best of
five). Kayla Nichols and Ashley
Nichols fed Hardee serving
with four points apiece.
At Fort Meade, the Hardee
JV took control, winning 25-13,
25-14. In game one, Maria
Anselmo had six service points,
including five aces. Ana Maria
Saldivar added four points and
Angelica Flores had three. In
game tido, Kayla Nichols had
nine service points, Anselmo
four and Ashley Nichols three.
Other JV players are Hannah

Letter To The Editor


Dear Editor:
Citizens for a Healthy Hard-
ee County opposes the pro-
posed regional landfill in south-
eastern Hardee County.
1.) Of the 80 truckload of
garbage coming into the pro-
posed landfill, how many will
actually be from Hardee County
and how many from south
Florida counties, and we
believe it is 3 trucks out of the
80.
2.) Does any of this garbage
contain medical or bio-haz-
ardous waste?
3.) Why liave not the other
south Florida counties bid for
their)garbage uch water will

this facility utilize?
5.) Who will pay for the
maintenance of the roads that
these 80 truckload in and 80
truckload out for .12 hours a
day?
6.) Who ivill pay for paying
. imd maintaining 4 miles of 10-
Mild Grade at a million dollars
a hile?

Florida a garbage company
. site will never fail thus contam-
inating our groundwater and
wells with arsenic, cyanide and
other toxic chemicals and possi-
bly flowing into our rivers,


streams, creeks and ponds?
8.) The City of Tampa pays
an environmental consultant
$200,000 a year to monitor
these toxic health.risks as well
as explosive methane gas.
9.) What precautions has the
county or .garbage company
taken to control the smell from
the garbage, rodents and vul-
tures from reachmg the homes
and businesses in the area?
.10.) What will be the real
estate tax loss from the depreci-
ating property values not only
to the immediate area but to the
real estate along the roadways

pa 1.) The Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) requires that the areas
surrounding this garbage dump
be monitored forever for don-
tamination and methane gas.
How long is Waste Services qf

Henderson took the only first-place at the Heartland Invitational
last weekend, but look for Josh Rickett, Jake Willis, John Miller,
T.K. Hogenauer, Stephanie Driver and Kate Krause to also do well
in districts.
Cross country won't have districts until the first week of
November, but the six girls and three boys are working hard to pre-
pare for them.
-----
There's been a settlement in the gender equity suit against the
Florida High School Activities Association. It means the associa-
tion cannot cut games in some sports and not others as the recent
Policy 6 allowed. For financial reasons, it cut varsity games other
than football by 20 percent aird junior varsity by 40 percent, saying
it would cut down on travel and officiating expenses. Since football
wasn't cut and corresponding girls sports were, it was a violation
of the federal Title IX gender equity laws. Policy 6 has been
removed.
Some schools have voluntarily cut the amount of competitions
for its athletes, cutting costs as school revenue has decreased.
-
A reminder: folks can now get Hardee High Sports information
by going to the website CECschools.com, entering the school
name, mascot, city and state and choosing the sport you are inter-
ested in. For most there is a team page, rosters, schedules which
include maps to events, and coverage on events which have already
happened. You can also enter the opponents' schools to find out
more about them, but some are not as complete as the Hardee
entries are.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at news.heral-
dadvocate@embarqmain.com with news for this biweekly column.
The sports news deadline is 5 p.m. Thursday, except for events
which happen over the weekend. They are due by noon Mondays.


the district championship game when they meet Nov. 6 in Wildcat
Stadium.
The JV Wildcats are looking at the possibility of an undefeated
season when they travel to Lake Placid tonight (Thursday). Lake
Placid is the team that upset their plans last season. To date, the 7-
0 junior Wildcats have beaten opponents 273-89. Can they make it
a perfect season?
The Junior High Wildcats are also looking good and continuing
their win streak. They won at home against Hill-Gustat last week
and played at DeSoto on Tuesday night. Scores from that game
weren't available by press time. They close the season at home next
Tuesday against Lake Placid. Could they also be undefeated?
By the way, Hardee Junior High softball is following suit,
unbeaten so far and, in many games, simply not scored upon at all.
Pitchers 15arlee Henderson and Alex Ullrich are a perfect comple-
ment on the mound. If one has an off day, the other is sure to be on.
It's approaching district time for most fall sports. Before you
turn around, basketball and soccer will be in the forefront.
For now, the golf teams went to Bradenton on Monday for dis-
trict playoffs, facing an uphill battle because of the private "golf"
schools and academies on the west coast. Hardee ought to be in the
same district as Avon Park, Frostproof and the like. Results weren't
available at press time. Boys golf finished the regular season 12-2.
Volleyball begins its district playoffs next Monday with a trip to
Sarasota to play Sarasota Booker, a team they've threatened but not
overcome all season. Perhaps, the third time will be the charm, and
Hardee will advance to the semi-finals.<
Swimming and diving are in district competition next Tuesday
and Wednesday at the Gandy Pool in Winter Haven. They've been
there during the season so are familiar with that venue. Hunter


ANNUAL ENCAMPMENT THIS WEEKEND
Greetings from the Paynes Creek Historic State Park Alliance!
The third annual encampment of Fort Chokonikla will be held
this Saturday and Sunday at Paynes Creek Historic State Park.
The time will be from 11 till 4.
The first two encampments were held in January, but froni
now on the encampment will be held in October. The change was
made' because October coincides with the time that Fort Cho-
konikla was occupied along with other forts that were built to stem
the Seminole uprisings.
What to find: Indian and soldier encampments; demonstra-
tions; black powder and tomahawk contests; face painting; sou-
venirs; and more.
The Citizens Support Organization will be selling food and
drinks. It will be a good opportunity to sign up to be a volunteer
with the CSO.
Remember the park fee is $3 per car up to eight persons. The
park is located on Lake Branch Road east of Bowling Green, about
one-half mile from the city limits.
See you there!

ing is alarming. A study con-
ducted by the Virginia Tech
Transportation Institute found
that truck drivers who text are
23.2 times more likely to have a
crash or near-crash event.
According to the American
Automobile Association, 80
percent of collisions are caused
by driver inattention.
Even more concerning is the
increase in reports of distracted
drivers ignoring or missing
school bus stop arms. Bus driv-
ers and police across the coun-
try are reporting a great r num-
ber of stop-arm incidents,
increasing the risk to student
safety.
The rules for motorists re-
garding school bits stop arms
are simple. When a school bus
stop arm is deployed:
Vehicles traveling the same
direction as the bus Aust stop
until the bus driver indicates it
is acceptable to pass or the stop
arm is retracted.
Vehicles traveling in the


opposite direction must 'stop
unless they are traveling on a
four-lane road .that includes a
median or barrier.
All drivers can help prevent
dangerous driving activity by:
Not using cell phones,
iPods or Blackberries while
driving. Drivers should pull
over to make phone calls,
change their playlist or send
texts.
Eliminating daily distrac-
tions such as putting on makeup
or eating while driving.
Heeding the school bus
stop arm. If the stop arm is
-extended and the red lights are
flashing, vehicles must stop
until the driver retracts the sign
and the bus resumes motion,
Motorists do not have to stop if
they are on the opposite side of
a four-lane road from the bus if
the road has a barrier; however,
they should reduce speed, as
children may be present.
Remaining alert at all
times.


, According to the National
Highway Traffic Safety Ad-
ministration, school buses are
ieven times safer than passen-
ger cars.
Unfortunately, motorists ille-
gally passing the stopped
school bus pFesent an increased
risk to students boarding or
leaving the bus. National
chool Bus Safety Week is Oct.
19 to 23, and it hopes to remind
motorists to turn off mobile
devices and heed the school bus ,
stop arm.
Making cell-phone calls,
sending or reading text mes-
sages, searching for and select-
ing a playlist, and other such
activities compromise a driver's
attention, even if just momen-
tarily.
: The use of mobile devices
while driving increases the rate
qf an incident. Preoccupied
drivers often do not notice
stopped school buses, placing
students at risk. '

TALK TO THEM!
October is National Let's Talk Month. .
Have you talked to your teen about avoiding risky behaviors
involving sex? Presented here are "10 Tips" from the National
Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy for adults to consider when
planning to have "the talk." They are summarized as follows:
1.) Be clear about your own sexual values and attitudes.
What do you really think about school-age teens
being sexually active and perhaps even becoming
parents? Were you sexually active as a teenager, and
how do you feel about that now? What will you say
to your own children about these issues?
2.) Talk with your children early and often'about sex, and
be specific. Kids have lots of questions about sex, and
the majority of them say that the source they'd most
like to go to for answers is their parents. Ask them
what they think and what they know so you can cor-
reciousconceptions..hkwhatifanythipgewprrips
then
3.) Sriper/ac and enonuor your children and adolescents.
If your children get out of school at 3 p.m. and you
don't get home from work until 6 p.m., who is
responsible for making certain they are not only safe
during these hours, but are also engaged in useful
activities? Are there adults in charge when they go
out with friends?
4.) Knote your children's friends and their families. Help
your teens become friends with kids whose families
share your values. You might even arrange to meet
with the parents of your children's friends to establish
common rules and expectations.
5.) Discourage early, frequent and steady dating.
Allowing your teen to begin steady, one-on-one dat-
ing much befoi-e age 16 can lead to trouble. Group
activities among young people are fine and often fun
and preferable. .
6.) Take a strong stand against you'r daughter dating a
boy significantly older than she is. And don't allow
your son to develop an intense relationship with a girl
much younger than he is. Older guys can seem glam-
orous to a girl, especially when they have money and
a car. This allure may lead girls into risky situations,
including unwanted sex and sex with no protection.
7.) Help your teens have options for the future that are
more attractive than early pregnancy and parent-
hood. Help your teens set meaningful goals for a
bright future, talking to them about what it takes to
make future plans come true. For example, if they
want to be a teacher, they will beed to stay in school
to earn various degrees and pass certain exams. A
pregnancy can derail the best of plans, and make it
almost impossible to afford college. .
8.) Let your teens know that you value education highly.
Encourage your teen to take school seriously and to
set high expectations for school performance. School
failure is often the first sign of trouble which can end
in teenage parenthood. Intervene early if things are
not going well grade-wise, and meet with teachers,
principals, guidance counselors and coaches. Even
volunteer at the school, if possible. .
9.) Know what your kids are watching, reading and lis-
tening to. The media television, music videos,
radio, movies, magazines and the Internet are
chock full of material sending the wrong messages to
teens about sex. If certain programs or movies offend
you, say so, and explam why. You can always turn the
TV off, cancel subscriptions, and place certain
movies off limits. You will probably not be able to
fully control what your children see and hear, but you
can certainly make your views known and control
your own home environment.
10.) Don't underestimate the great need children feel -
at all ages for a close relationship with their par-
ents and for their parents' guidance, approval and
supports Express love and affection clearly and often,
Hug your children, and tell them how much they
mean to you. A relationship that is warm in tone, firm
( in discipline, righ in communication, and emphasizes
mutual trust and respect will create a healthy self-
esteem in your teenager. .
Hopefully, these 10 tips for parents have provided helpful
ideas on how to create a healthy atmosphere for open communica-
tion about sex with your teens.
For more in-depth information, visit the Web site www.then-
ationalcampaign.org. It is an excellent resource for both adults and
teens on the topic of sex and sexuality. Both you and your teen
might peruse this Web site together to start a conversation today on
this topic,
Don't procrastinate having this talk!

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE: The Southwest Florida Water Management District is proposing to amend
the following rules: 40D-1.659, 40D-2.091, 40D-2.101, F.A.C.

The District is adopting a revised Water Use Permit Application Supplemental Form for Public Supply, Form No. LEG-
R.033.01 (9/09) and a new Small General Water Use Permit Application Public Supply Attachment, Form No. LEG-
R.045.00 (9/09). The Public Sup ly Supplemental Form Southern Water Use Caution Area, Form No. LEG-R.012.00
(4/09), is repealed, as it is no longer needed as a separate form. The new expanded application forms for public sup-
ply water uses are intended to eliminate or reduce District requests for additional information in order to complete a per-
mit application. Updated and revised forms are being implemented in conjunction with the District's expansion of its on-
line permitting system. The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking appeared in the Florida Administrative Weekly, Vol. 35, No.
40, 40D-1.659 and 40D-2.091 and 40D-2.101, F.A.C., on October 16, 2009. A copy of the proposed rules can be viewed
on the District's web site at http://www/rules/proposed/.

THE PERSON TO BE CONTACTED REGARDING THE PROPOSED RULES AND A COPY OF THE PRELIMINARY DRAFT
OF EACH, IS: Martha A. Moore, Senior Attorney, Office of General Counsel, 2379 Broad Street, Brooksville, Florida

If you would like further
information on this topic or pro-
grams relating to Teen Preg-
nancy Prevention in Hardee


understand that teen chiklbear-
ing has a close association with
poverty, dropout rates and sin-
gle parenthood, which burden
both the teen mother and her
child. Securing a well-paying
job in the U.S. employment
market has become tougher on
all fronts; but especially for
those with hmited education.
The latest data, from 2007,
indicates that Hardee County
ranks second highest out of 67
counties for births to girls under -
18. On a national scale, the
United States still has the high-
est rate of teen childbearing
among comparable countries.
In fact, at present, 30 percent of
U.S. teen girls get pregnant at
least once before their 20th
bir hdaT, o cAfrican- merian
numbers are even higher, 51
and 53 percent respectively.
A final note: It's never too
late to improve a relationship
with a child or teenager,
Don't underestimate the great
need that children feel at all
ages for a close relationship

mend that they delay starting
families. Here are a few:
.* Babies and children are
more likely to thrive when they
are raised by adult parents who
are committed to each other and
to years of devoted parenting.
"If it happens, it happens"
is no way to start a family. And
"I never really thought about it"
isn't either.
Babies do not cement rela-
tionships; they often put great
stress on them. Be sure you are
in a solid relationship before
you begin a family.
Sex has meaning, risks and
consequences. It's not a casual
activity..Take it seriously.
Babies do not give uncon-
ditional love; they demand it
from thebadults around tMeaTing
babies does not make you a
man. Being a devoted partner
and father may.
To girls: Sex will not make
him yours, and a baby will not
make him stay.
In short, getting preg-
nant/causing pregnancy and
st in miles atre perh sop1e
ever do, with generational
effects. These major steps need
to be thought about carefully,
not stumbled into.
People think and talk about
so many less important things
all the time: what's for dmner'
the upcoming football season'
what movie to see this week-
end. Surely the issue-of when to
become a parent, with whom,
and under what circumstances
deserves at least the same
'amount of time and attention.
This is more than sex educa-
tion or risk reduction; it's edu-
cation for adult life, and parents
do not do enough of it.
Many adults who follow the
teen pregnancy rates and trends


October is "Lets Talk
Month," which is a reminder
that in conversations with
young people about sex, preg-
nancy and family formation -
AKA, the dreaded "Talk" -
parents too often leave out one
of the mott important topics of
all: healthy relationships.
Simply put, young people
often get the textbook defini-
tions on how to reduce the risk
of pre nancy and sexually
transmit d diseases (STDM) -
by waiting to have sex or by
using contraception but they
are rarely given guidance on
how to successfully navigate
the minefield of relationships.
Remember that the lessons
they learn from their relation-

they form as adults.
Parents you, are first and
foremost in your children's
eyes, so remember it matters
what you do, not just what you
sa Teens your sons as well
as your daughters say that
parents most influence their
deci s about dating and rela-

Despite what you think,'your
influence has not been lost to
peers and popular culture,
Parents need to talk to their
teens about how to have a suc-
cessful relationship; about who
is in charge in their relation-
ship; and even if they are ready
for a relationship. Teens may
need your help in determining if
they are in love, how to deal
with pressure and remembering
its not just what's safe, it's
what s right for them.
Consider reviving some old
ideas and normative statements
that one rarely hears anymore
many of which might help
teens understand more deeply
why so many adults recom-

Built in early 1849, the post

In their only match last


week, "the 'Cats finished the
season with a heart-pounding
win in the last seconds. Justin
Bromley had kept us close with
his eagle on his last hole. This
left it to Bryson White to finish
strong and seal the victory,
which he did. The end result
was that the 'Cats won by the
slimmest of margins, 163-164,"
reported Coach George Heine.
"DeSoto is the most im-
proved team we have faced this
season. All three matches have
been close, but not this close.
We finished the season with a
12-2 record. I will probably
renew the boys' contracts for
the next season," said Heine,
who loses only senior Grayson
Lambert to graduation.
In last week's match, soph
Danief Miller led the 'Cats
home with a 37, followed by
junior Bromley with 39, class-
mate Taylor Barlow with 43, ,
White with 44, and soph Dalton
Hewett, and freshman Will


Bennett both 47.
Meanwhile, the Hardee girls
had back-to-back matches early
last week. The Thursday match
at home against Lakeland
Christian didn't happen due to a
mixup in the venue.
On Oct. 12, the girls hosted
DeSoto and won 201-212.
Junior Kara Norris carded a 40
and classmate Emily Williams
came home in 41 strokes.
Lauren Moore and senior
Macey Reas followed them
home for the team score.
DeSoto's low score was 47.
On Tuesday, Hardee traveled
to Lake Placid, this time win-
ning by the narrowest of mar-
gins, 235-236 on the very fast
greens at the Placid Lakes Club.
Again Norris led Hardee
golfers, but only with a 53.
Williams had 55 and Moore 59.
Reas and Savannah Selph com-
pleted the team score. For the
.Lady Dragons, the low score
was a 53.

Dr. Stephen Gordon, medical director for the HardeeCounty Health Department, spoke
to the Hardee Rotary Club on Sept. 23 about swine flu, also known as the H1N1 vlrys.
The flu isitransmitted person-to-person and is worldwide. Swine flu originated from
Mexico and is different from the avian flu of several years ago. The swine flu started in
the spring of 2009 and may have peaked in Florida. As of Sept. 23 there were six dood
umented swine flu cases in Hardee County. There were 87 swine flu deaths in Florida,
1,025 deaths in the United States and 3,500 deaths worldwide. About 2,000 doses of
swine flu vaccine were expected in Hardee in mid-October. He shid no vaccine is 100
percent effective or safe. Shown (from left) are Wes Roe, Gordon and Juan Delatorre.

Rise & Shine

By Ted Simonson
THE GREAT STONE FACE
Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote "The Great.Stone Face." It is a
tale of a people who were so well governed that when their king
died,.they determined never to have another until they could find a
man that looked and acted like their great king. -
To keep his picture before the people, they had a huge profile
carved into a cliff.
For years, a commission hunted throughout the realm for a
man who could qualify but without success. Then one*day they
stopped at a humble cottage at the base of the great stone face and
here, to their joy, they found a young mim whose face was just the
same as the king's face carved in the cliff above.
Day-by-day this young man had plowed his little fields and cut
his wood. And as he did, he gazed up at the wonderful face above
him that spoke of courage and purity and determination, and day-
by-day, shaped by the thoughts he allowed to dwell in his mind, he
became like the dead king.

ing m ee tl gr t stone face to look at. We have a liv-
And as we listen and obey, our lives will be shaped into the
image of our Savior.

4B The Herald-Advocate. October 22. 2009


on Sunday nights for RA'e'to
meet and study.

The First astorium
. The first pastorium was built
in 1938-39. It was a wooden
frame house containing a front-
screened porch, living room,
two bedrooms, a bath, a small
kitchen and a small dining
room. Sherman Whiting was
the carpenter in charge of the
building. Several men of the
church donated their time and
tools and worked under
Whiting's direction so the cost
of the work would not be too
high.
The Rev. Angus McClelland
was the first pastor to live in the
pastorium.
The Educa'tional Building
July 7, 1953, was the day for
dedication of a large, two-story
educational building. This was
made of cement blocks and
concrete. It contained a
kitchen, dining hall, two bath-
rooms, a storage room and ,18
classrooms for Sunday School
and Training Union to use.
Robert W. Pierce was the car-
penter in charge of ,building.
Many men of the church helped
and the ladies came to furnish
the noon meals and do any of
the work they could.
What a time the good ladies
of the WMU had! They made
the kitchen their project and
* such fun they had! Orilla Bailey
donated the first stove, a gas
range. Other ladies contributed
dishes, flatware, linens and
drapes. In contrast to facilities
of other times, this was heaven-
ly. Cost of the building was
approximately $20,083.45.
The Sanctuary Building
The present red brick build-
ing called New Hope Baptist
Church was constructed in
1960-61. H.L. Bostick was the
contractor in charge and, again,
many men of the church donat-
ed time and labor irr order to
help.
For sentimental reasons, four
rows of the theater-type chairs
from the old church were
installed in the choir of the new
building. Five more rows.of
seats were installed in the bal-
cony.
New pews were bought for
the auditorium. They were
placed in three sections and,
with the balcony, would seat
approximately 475 people,
The first service held in the
new auditorium was on Apni 4,
1961, with the pastor, B.C.
Lamb, bringing the sermon.
When the morning collection
was counted it was announced
that our building would be paid
for and there would be $300
over to remain in the building
fund.
May 10, 1961, the church
voted to give the baptistery
from the old building to the Fort
Green Baptist Church. On Nov.
7, 1961 the church voted to give
the baptistery painting from the
old church to Bethel Baptist
Church at Crewsville.
The old building was used for
various church activities until
August 1963, when it was sold
and hauled away by the new
owner.


New Hope Baptist Church in
Wauchula will be. hosting its
130th Anniversary Homecom-
ing this weekend,
Events commence on Satur-
day afternoon with a historical
review. Called "A Walk
Through The Past," there will
be exhibits from each decade
and a display of antique cars,
beginning at 3 p.m. .
There also will be games and
activities for all ages. Partici-
pants and spectators are encour-
aged to bring their own lawn
chairs.
Following the outdoors fun,
there will be a dinner at "Meet
The Ministers" time starting at
5 p.m.
The homecoming celebration
continues on Sunday.
Past pastors are part of the
memories, and Sunday School
at 9:45 a.m. will be conducted
in the sanctuary by the Rev.
Travis Hudson. The homecom-
ing worship service will begin
at 11, with Dr. Ron Cumbie.
Current pastor is the Rev.
Christopher Bishop.
Dinner on the grounds fol-
lows at noon.
And, to conclude the special
130th Anniversary Homecom-
ing, there will be the homecom-
ing song and testimony service
at 1:30 p.m.
New Hope Baptist Church,
located at 1999 SR 64 E., has a
long and rich history.
An anniversary. committee
worked to prepare photographs
and a 34-page history of the
church, much of it gleaned from
130 years of church minutes.
Committee members are Chair-
man Rowland and Helga
Shackelford, Maurice and Betty
Henderson, Carl Frey and
Gayle Weeks, Wilbur and Susan
Robertson,.and Shirley Knight.
The history provides a closer
look at this Hardee County
landmark church, complete
with storied details of the past.
A glimpse of some of the his-
torical data follows, in exact
excerpts from that history and
quoted below:
From The Beginning
The New Hope Baptist
Church came into existence on
"Friday, before the fourth
Sunday in December 109."
The actual account of thd
organization reads, "New Hope
Church, Manatee County,
Florida. A meting was held by
Brethren E.J. Hull, J.M. Henry
and D. Spencer commencing
friday (sic) before the Lord's
Day in December 27, 1879, and
on Sabbath Evening at three
o'clock went into the organiza-
tion of New Hope Church
organized with ten members."
The church records list the
original 10 members as: Wm.
M. Crews, D.J.W.eBoney, Win,
H: Hart, Wm. R. Dawson/ T.J.
Grice, Lydia A. Boney, Moley
Crews, C Sophia P. Whidon,
Lydia Haik and Mary J. Hart.
The first pastor was W.F. Norris
and the first church'clerk was
W.H. Hart.
The t-hurch called itself the
Missionary Church of Christ at
New Hope, and set its meetings
for the Saturday before the
fourth Sunday of each month,
. The meetings would begin on
Saturday and transact whatever


business it might have, then
have a preaching service on
Sunday that would last until 2
or 3 o'clock in the afternoon.
It was not unusual for a service
to begin on Friday and go
through Sunday, with preaching
every day.
From its organization in 1879
into the early part of 1900,
members of New Hope Baptist
Church met and worshiped in a
brush arbor and sat on home-
made benches. At times, espe-
cially when a baptismal service
was planned, they met in a
clearing near.Bee Brimch. At
other times the record reveals
they met near Peace River.
. Froni the very beginning in
1879, members were faithful in
attendance despite many diffi-
culties. Road conditions were
often poor, distances involved
m these pre-machme days were
great, family responsibilities
and farm chores meant sacri-
fices in order to attend worship
services.
Church membership grew
slowly but steadily.
.
The First Church Building
How happy they must have
been when, through the leader-
ship of the Holy Spirit, a real
building was possible. It was
built in the very early part of
1900, a wooden frame house,
and every piece of material
used was carefully chosen.
There was one double door in
the front, and in front of it there
was a set of wooden steps.The
windows were regular size, five
windows on each side and two
windows each in front and
back. One interesting note
remembered by pioneers is the
fact that the boards that formed
the walls of the house were
placed up and down, or vertical-
ly. It was 30x40 feet in size.
This first building was a
source of pride for the ones who
worshiped there. Many faithful
ones had prayed, planned, sacri-
ficed and worked hard to pro-
vide this place oftworship. .
Such faithfulness prompted
growth. The membership grew
so that more space was needed.
Two outhouses were provided.
for the members use. Covered
ta81$1vas ASnstructed on the
nortl(,.side 41f the grounds to
help with.space for the fellow-
ship meals. It also served as a
place for the young people's
Sunday School class to meet.
A building committee -was
appointed to see what i-ould be
done to provide more space.
Fifteen feet were added across
the back part of the house in
1902, and this helped for a few
years. The membership kept
right on growing.
During the years 1906-08,
there were many plans made;
several committees worked
hard to build a larger house.
The measurements by this time
were 45x45. It was still to be a
Wooden frame house, but of
carefully chosen materials.
The lxhards were .placed .hori-
zontally this time.
There was*a vestibule, a place
for the pulpit and a place for
pews for the choir back of the
pulpit. There was a beautiful
bell tower. This room made
another spot for a Sunday
School class, and was also used

Youth Football
By Paul Paris
Rah! Rah! Rah! is the phrase of the week for Hardee Youth
Football. All of the cheerleading squads are practicing hard for
competition at the USF Sun Dome this Sunday. The schedule is: Jr
Pee Wee at 11:23; Pee Wee 12:03; Tiny Mite at 1:12; Mitey Mite at
2:32, and Midget at 3:20. This event is open to the public. Tickets
are available at the door. Along with cheering on football players
and getting the crowd excited about the game week in and week
out, this competition is phy cheerleaders cheer. HYFL wishes our
girls oet s out on Saturdays in the fall is like turkey at
Thanksgiving, you can't have one without the other. It's no differ-
ent here in Hardee. Six games were played at Wildcat stadium op
Saturday. Flag and Tiny Mite were both very solid g4mes.
Hardee Flag took on the Manatee Mustangs and Hardee Tiny
Mite tangled with the New Tampa Patriots. Mity Mite lost its quar-
terback early to a hard hit and never could score. NT Patriots 12
HM tee3 rd 38Wee unloaded on the Manatee Wildcats.
Pee Wee was able to play this week and play they did. Even
though they lost, they played a very tough and close game. The
Patriots had an extra point kicker that was very good, and in Pop
Warner a kicked extra point is worth 2. NT Patriots 22 Hardee 19.
The best game of the day was the Midget game. I am not sure
".b thes atak r thearndpla nee des and founl na q>enn n
game..NT Patriots 6 Hardee 20.
This week Hardee will play its last regular season games at
home against the Hurricanes. This is your last chance to come out
and see all of HYFL's football and cheerleaders in action at Wildcat
Staclium. Games begin at 9 a.m.
Hardee Youth Football League is a proud member of the Pop
Wamer Little Scholars. Pop Warner is the only nationwide foot-
ball program that places more emphasis on scholastic achievement
thari on football and cheerleading.

IN SISTER'S MEMORY
Catherine Ann, Cathy, Sister.

Cathy, she was a blonde, blue-eyed little girl.
She was her grandma's treasured pearl.
She cattle into this world with a veil ort her face.
She was the oldest and she knew her place.
She would chase ducks, chickens and kittens, too.
There wasn't too triuch my sister couldn't do.

At the a of five Cath learned to ski school.
Why, she even learned to break the Golden Rule.
This tomboy grew up free and wild.
YOU SCC, She WRS her grandtria's child.
She was a fighter this is true.
She loved with her heart, that's your clue.

Cathy, rent sister, has passed this llfe arid gone ort.
ith0ut her here Ihave felt so sad arid alone.
.
Are you chasing hons and lambs and running free?
Sick no more, Iknow you're as happy as you can be.
Cathy, One day I will be with you there without a care.
Until then, you will be in my heart, here and everywhere.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Wildcats are going to
win.
That's both the long and the
short of it as the Hardee Wild-
cats take their five-game win
streak on the road Friday even-
mg to face the Estero Wildi-ats.
On paper, this could look as
an easy game. But, in reality, it
could be quite difficult. Al-
though the Hardee Wildcats
have a 5-0 record and outscored
opponents 168 to 36 in five
games this season, the Estero
Wildcats can't be taken lightly.
Estero has played some big
schools, losing the season open-
er to South Fort Myers 52-6.
After facing St. John Neuman
Catholic of Naples, I ngle-
wood-Lemon Bay, Palmefto
Ridge of Naples and North Fort
Myers, it didn't get any easier.
Estero lost 61 to 27 against dis-
trict rival DeSoto and last week
31-11 to Fort Myers.
Incidentally, if flardee de-
feats Estero and DeSoto downs
Immokalee in their respective
games tomorrow night, the
Nov. 6 game in the oldest rival-
ry in the state, DeSoto at
Hardee, could by for the district
championship. If each wins on
Friday night, each is.assured of
at least a post-season berth.
The southern brand of Wild-


cats specializes in the pass, with
a 500-yard game under their
belt and a total of 1,200 yards
passing."Anyone that can throw
that much can be dangerous.
We will need to play hard
against them," said Hardee
Head Coach Tim Price.
Ranked number three in the
state Class 2A sportswriters
poll, the Hardee Wildcats have
amassed 1,767 total yards
against 911 for their opponents.
A lot of credit goes to the offen-
sive line, which was named the
Offensive Players of the Week
for the Immokalee game two
weeks ago. Around center
Wintz Terrell, alternating
guards and tackles include Tylar
Alden, Cody Hernandez, Dal-
ton Farr, Jonathan Kelly, Devon
Harris and Jesus Villegas, and
tight end Jake Nowakowski.
Behind them are quarterback
Ezays Youyoute, and backs
Jarrius Lindsey, Jake Mayer and
Antjuan Jones. The versatile
Youyoute leads the scoring
quartet with 42 carries for 483
yards and 10 touchdowns. Each
of the four backs collected over
100 offensive yards in the bal-
anced attack against district
rival Immokalee. "We try to get
everyone involved," comment-
ed Price.
Defensively, senior tackle
Lunior St. Louis. led the team in


the humokalee game with five
tackles, one for -a loss and one
sack. "He had a big game down
under," said Price.
Other defensive players earn-
ing honors have included
Mikey Retana, Jones, Alden
and Nowakowski. Retana pro-
vides good pass coverage and
has had several mterceptiony
this season. In the Oct. 9 game,
he had 1.5 tackles and near
interception. Andrew Hooks
and Conner Davis each had five


tackles.
On Special Teams, the Player
of the Week for the Immokalee
game was kicker Martin Vega.
He converted six of seven PATs
and boomed several kickoffs
into the end zone to prevent
runbacks.
Look for another strong game
after the long ride to Estero.
The Oct. 30 game at Okee-
chobee will be another long
ride. The Brahmans lost 34-0 at
Bartow last weekend. -


When your dreams turn to dust, vacuum.

A little boy prayed, "Loid, I
wish You'd make Tommy stop
beating me. Amen." Then he
added, "This is the second
time, Lord, I've made this
request."
You can take allything to
the Lord in prayer. There's no
problem too big for His
power. There's no person too
small for His love
He vites, "Ask, and it
shall be given to, you; seek,
and ye shall find; knock, and
it shall be opened unto-you."
How slow we are to ask.
How quick we are to give
ap
But delays are not denials.
Ask, and keep on asking.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, Tim Tebow led the Gators to a final drive,
capped by a 27-yard field goal, in Heisman fashion, as the number
one ranked team ran its winning streak to 16 games. Shades of the
2009 Ole Miss game ran through the 90,000 fans in the Swamp
until that final 69-yard drive. The Arkansas Razorbacks had sever-
al chances to put the Gators away butt failed to execute.
Consequently, the Gators did not jom Virginia Tech, Ohio St. and a
few other ranked teams that fell on a mini-version of "Upset
Saturday. -
The South Florida Bulls must be thinking it's happening all
over agam. Seems like every year they start out strong and then hit
the mid-season slide. The start of the second half saw the Bulls
with momentum, the crowd into the game and the smell of an upset
with Bearcats QB Tony Pike out of the garne. Then the backup
quarterback ran 75 yardafor a touchdown and the meltdown began.
Shades of2007 and 2008 haunt the USF Bulls.
2009 has been a rough year for starting quarterbacks in college
football,. Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford have dominated the head-
lines with their injuries but the Big East has seen three starters go.
down. Matt Grothe is finished for his college career. Tony Pike
could miss a few weeks in a crucial stretch for UC. Jarrett Brown
went down in the first series for West Virginia against Marshall this
week. He suffered a concussion but is expected back for next week.
True freshman Gino Smith, a Parade All-American from Miami,
played well for the Mountaineers in the 24-7 win over Marshall.
However, Brown backed tip Pat White for all those years and
deserves his senior season. Pro scouts have been impressed with
his I as well
pV ginia sits atop the standings in the ACC, the Anyone Can
Compete football league. Yes; the Cavaliers with hard-fought loss-
es to William & Mary and Southern Miss lead their side of the
ACC. While speaking of the ACC, reading team message boards on
the internet can be very amusing. VirginiaTech fans were posting
plans in Pasadena for the National Championship Game. ey -

October 22, 2009, The Herald-Advocate 3C


were making reservations at hotels with the idea the Chokies, err I
mean Hokies, would be playing in the game. One has to love delu-
sion in the fans. A two-loss SEC team would be more qualified to
play for a titlp that an unbeaten ACC team.
Now it is time to for the Swami's Top 10:
1.) Florida 6-0 Until somebody can beat the defending
National Champs, they stay.on top.
2.) Alabama 7-0 -'Saban has the Tide Rolling. Should be a
Showdown in Atlanta with UF.
3.) Cincinnati 6-0 As I said, the Best Team in Ohio and
could go unbeaten.
4.) Boise State 6-0 have to throw a monkey wrench into the
BCS
5.) TCU 6-0 ---- the best team in Texas deserves this spot
6.) Houston 5-1 wins over Texas Tech, Miss. State and
Okla We a rginia 5-1 -- if not for 6 turnovers at Auburn
would be 6-0.
8.) Texas 6-0 Let me know when they gain more than 46
yards rushing against Colorado.
9.) USF 5-1 Cincy is just better. Bulls must beat Pitt to
stay.
10.) Iowa 7-0 Who would not win 7 in a row with that
schedule?

Aird, coming up this weekend:
1.) Connecticut at West Virginia Mountaineers will wel-
come a sullen team to its homecoming. The Huskies had a fatal
stabbing on campus of their starting cornerback after their game
Saturday night. It is a sad when senseless violence pecurs. WVU is
planning a pregame ceremony to honor the Husky player. The
Mountaineers should survive homecoming. WVU 34 UConn 20..
2.) Florida at Mississippi State Gators do not play well in
Mississippi historically but this team needs to refocus and step up
its intensity after the Arkansas scare. Florida 38 MSU 10-
3.) USF at Pitt Time for USF to step up or fold the tent.
This is a chance to salvage the good reputation the Bulls have
earned by beating FSU. Pitt sits atop the Big East for now but
Cincy and WVU wait after USF. Hopefully, the Bulls start the
three-game slide for the Panthers. USF 27 Pitt 24.
4.) Clemson at Miami This game is on ABC? I might have
to order some movies from Netflix. Must not be any teams in the


SEC playing that night. Miami 27 Clemson 21.
5.) Georgia Tech at Virginia Surely, the Jackets will end the
championship run of the mighty William & Mary whipping boys?
Never know in Charlottesville. Georgia Tech 44 Virginia 13.
6.) FSU at North Carolina Can the Tar Hepls add to
Bobby's retirement? UNC 31 FSU 23.
7.) UAB at Marshall Herd needs to rebound after a loss to
instate rival WVU. They also owe the Blazers one for the blown
game last year. Marshall 24 UAB 14.
8.) Akron at Syracuse The Ohio State and Minnesota game
was supposed to be in this slot but I decided to pick.a more intpor-
tant game involving an Ohio team. Purdue? Are you kidding me?
Syracuse 34 Akron 17.
9.) Rutgers at Army Scylet Knights will be chopping' woop
for Schiano. Rutgers 41 Army 13.
10.) UCF at Rice Knights get passed by the Owls. Rice 33
UCFill) Arkansas at Ole Miss Hogs let down after near miss in
the Swamp. Mississippi.27 Arkansas 21.
12.) Tennessee at Alabama Kiffen gets what he deserves
again. The SEC:Championship game in Atlanta could and should
be between unbeaten Alabama and unbeaten Florida. That is in
reality the National 'Championship Game if both stay on
course.Tide Rolls Big here. Alabama 42 Tennessee 17.
13.) Boston College at Notre Dame Charhe will be looking
for a job after this season. Irish Eyes are on Cincinnati's Coach
Kelly. BC has beaten Notre Dame through the years. We shall see
if it happens again. Notre Dame 28 BC 24.
14.) Auburn at LSU Tigers will help continue the Auburn
slide. LSU 34 Auburn 23
15.) Vanderbilt at South Carolina Poor Commodores. USC
30 Vandy 16. '
16.) New England and Tampa London is the site. Defeat
for Tampa is the storyline. Pats 41 Tampa 7.
17.) New Orleans at Miami Saints are too good this years
New Orleans 31 Dolphins 21.
18.) San Francisco at Houston Slaton runs wild. Houston
33 SF 17.
19.) .Indianapolis at St. Louis Can Marc Bulger outduel
Peyton? Colts 34 Rams 21.
20.) NY Jets at Oakland Jets bounce back after the Buffalo
throwaway. NYJ 28 Oakland 20.

THE OL' YELLA' DOG
It was there again this morning, that big ol' yellow dog tied up
in front of the two-story mountain house close to the county road.
Just by simply gazing at its large stature, one couldn't deter-
mine if it was friend or foe, but judging by its ferociously loud
liarking, I assumed it was the latter, and so did Little Brownie-
Every time that humongous dog barked, Browme would run
up to my side, jumping with fervor in her efforts to convey her des-
perate need for safety. Her large brown eyes begged for the ends-
sure of loving arms, soft words of comfort, and the assurance that
Ahe would be held securely until all fear of danger had finally
eased. .
By the time our morning trek had reached the Christmas tree
form, Brownie was squirming and wiggling restlessly in my arms
tis she struggled to communicate her need for freedom. She knew
that the road ahead was a safe passage, enticing her spirit with the
melodies of singing birds and promise of cool mountain waters that
flow into trickling creeks across the dusty county road, providing
her with much needed refreshment.
As I watched the little Shih-Tzu speed gleefully ahead, I
couldn't help but think of the past experiences in my life when I,
foo, had cried out for loving arms to embrace me, soft words to
soothe my troubled soul, and the promise that all would be well
Yet despite the times I lacked the comfort and support of fam-
ify and friends, I knew without a shadowy of a doubt that I was never
alone, for His Word promised, that He would never leave me or
forsake me.
Knowing that we had to venture past the ol' yella' dog on our
return to the Big House, I scooped Brownie into my arms as we
founded the corner, eliminating her need to beg for protection. I
smiled as I envisioned myself clothed in a white robe with a gold
$raided belt tied around my waist and a golden halo hovering over
(ny head, attempting to create a visual image of one of the guardian
angels that fle has promised to all believers in Psalm 91: "For He
hall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways.
their hands they shall bear you up . "
The maple leaves rustled their morning greeting as we
returned home, causing me to pause and enjoy the serenity of the
nioment.
( As I stood by the red barn that housed Dad's tractor, I gazed at
the white mist billowing from the tops of the mountains in the east-
Arn sky and whispered, "Thank You, Lord, for always being there
dickh e dnd a ozne thro h th ast fe 1 es of nz
rote 2 You for Your promise that You will.carry me past those

ig ol' dogs of life that cause desperate insecurity and overwhelm-
ng fear, providing me .ivith comfort and strength in the safety of
ose nail-scarred hands that will plant my feet on solid ground
only when all present danger has passed."
