Head Football Coach Resigns


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Once again, Hardee High
School is searching for a new
head football coach.
Three-year Head Coach Tim
Price announced his resignation
late last week.
"Due to personal issues that
deal with my family and health,
I have decided to resign as the


head football coach of the
Hardee Wildcats. I want to
thank everyone for giving me
the opportunity. It has been a
blessing to me, to be able to
work with the young men of
Hardee County," Price said
early Monday.
' He returned to Hardee High
to take the head spot in Wildcat
football in the spring of 2007,


Following the resignation of
Derren Bryan, who wanted to
devote more time to his young
sons. Price faces a similar situa-
tion in two youngsters and a
travel schedule that keeps him
away from home a lot.
"This was the hardest deci-
sion that I ever had to make. It
saddens me deeply and I will
miss it. I already do," he com-


mented.
He was most concerned for
his players. "It was a great sea-
son. We had a good group of
young men, that would accept
nothing but the best for the
Wildcats. They brought the true
meaning of being a Wildcat to
the forefront, not only by their
play on the field, but the char-

For years, it was the venue of
choice for wedding receptions,
Christmas parties, retirement
celebrations.
Office staffers and retail
workers ordered its hot home-
style meals for desktop or break
room lunches. Weekend barbe-
cues were inexpensive and
tasty. Bingo nights were popu-
lar with loyal fans.
The community benefitted by
its presence, its members con-
tributing to scouting, scholar-

Lodge No. 1700 of the Ben-
evolent & Protective Order of
Elks faded away. The doors
closed. And, on Sept. 1 of last
year, the local lodge lost its
charter.
The facility remains, and it
will go on the auction block
tomorrow (Friday) at 11 a.m. A
final preview for interested bid-
ders is at 10.
The property, owned by the
Grand Lodge, is being auc-
tioned by Higgenbotham Au-
ctioneers. The auction will be
held oh site. The buyer must


have a 10 percent deposit ready
that day. There is also a 10 per-
cent buyer's premium, which
means that much will be added
to the final winning bid.
The Elks Lodge sits at 318 W.
Main St., its building and park-
ing lot covering about one acre
of prime downtown Wauchula
land. The property has 250 feet
of Main Street frontage.
The building is 14,750 square
feet. It features two large event
rooms and two kitchens. There's
office space and, outside, plenty
of parking.


Its proximity to the Hardee
County Courthouse makes it a
perfect site for legal or other
professional offices, Higgen-
botham Auctioneers points out
it its sales materials. Or, in the
alternative, its "premier loca-
tion" lends well to demolition
and then building anew to suit
the buyer's needs, the auction-
eer says.
The lodge building has been a
downtown landmark since the
1940s.

An officer in a children's
sports league has been accused
of stealing thousands of dollars
from the program.
SJudy Darlene Rowe, 36, of
3330 Suwannee St., Zolfo
Springs, was arrested early
Friday afternoon on a grand
theft charge.
She is accused of taking
about $7,500 from Hardee
County Youth Sports Inc. while
serving as treasurer of the base-
ball and softball program for
kids.
Rowe was booked into the
Hardee County Jail at 12:09
p.m. by sheriffs Det. John
Shivers. Records show Rowe
was released on a personal


recognizance bond shortly after,
at 1:23 p.m.
She is scheduled to appear in

Teacher Suspended


The Elks Lodge, a landmark on Main Street since the 1940s, goes up for auction Friday.


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee Senior High School's
band director has been placed
on administrative leave.
Schools Superintendent Dav-
id Durastanti confirmed on
Tuesday that David Faulk, who
is in his second year at the high
school, was suspended with pay
by the Hardee County School
Board effective Jan. 25.
Durastanti said he was not at
liberty to discuss the reasons
behind the suspension. He said
only that there is an active
investigation into allegations
against Faulk.
. That investigation, he noted,
is being conducted by the
Hardee County Sheriffs Office.
Dr. Michele Polk, the new
principal at Hardee Senior High
School, said Faulk was first


hired before she came to the
school. He began as part-time'
band director in the 2008-09
academic year, also serving
part-time as band director at
Hardee Junior High School.
He became a full-time
teacher and band director at the
senior high at the start of the
2009-10 school year, she said.
Polk said Faulk taught dsama
and music classes in addition to
his duties as the band's director.
She. too, said she could not
elaborate on any allegations
leading to Faulk's absence from
campus.
"The band program is very
important to us," Polk said. "We
are going to continue it with a
teacher on staff. He will take up
the responsibility and keep the
program moving."

Pedestrian



Killed


On U.S. 17

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
, Of The Herald-Advocate
A pedestrian was killed
Monday night on U.S. 17 in
Wauchula Hills, the Florida
Highway Patrol said.
As of early Wednesday morn-
ing, the victim had not been
identified. Lt.' Chris Miller,
public affairs officer for this
district, could say only that the
victim was a Hispanic male.
Investigators are trying to
identify the man so that his next
of kin may be notified.
According to the FHP, the
accident occurred ,at'7:10 p.m.
on Monday on U.S. 17 North at
Rainey Boulevard. The FHP did
not specify if. the victim was
trying to cross U.S. 17 or if he
was walking alongside or in the
roadway.
Miller said reports were
incomplete at this time. The
investigation continues, he said.
The lieutenant did say the
pedestrian was struck by a 1998
Chevrolet Blazer. The driver of
that vehicle, Daniel Petry; 39,
was not injured in the accident,
he said. .
The pedestrian died at the
scene.
'He became the second person
to be killed on Hardee County
roadways this new year.

worked with the band in the
past, will now take the lead.
"He is familiar with the ins and
outs of band,". Polk noted.
The principal added, "This is
temporary, until this issue is
resolved."
Faulk, who earned a music
degree from Auburn University
in Alabama, has been teaching
music to youngsters for over 25
years. His teaching career has
taken him to South Carolina,
Georgia and Florida, Durastanti
said.
It has not'been without com-
plications, as records show his
teaching license has been sus-
pended in both the other states,
.then later reinstated.
"He has a valid certificate,"
Durastanti said on Tuesday. "It
was renewed before we hired
him."
Durastanti said Mike
Wilkinson, principal of the high
school at that time, was in
charge of reviewing job appli-
cations, checking personal ref-
erences and interviewing candi-
dates., Durastanti said Wilkin-
son did make calls to those ref-
erences listed on Faulk's appli-
cation. Responses were posi-
tive.'
It is the state Department of
Education, Durastanti ex-
plained, which verifies creden-
tials and checks backgrounds.
The state issued Faulk a valid
.Florida license, he noted.


An incorrect address was
listed, in last week's story
about the Bowling Green
City Commissioh meeting.
The correct address of the
house being investigated
for having too many resi-
dents and not have proper
homestead exemption is
5105 Minor Ave. in Bowling
Green, not 5115 minor Ave.

Any proposed site would have to come before the loc

A TRIBUTE













CHRISTOPHER DAVID
HELVESTON
Christopher David Helves-
ton, 38, of 1528 Altman Road,
Wauchula, died Tuesday, Feb.
2, 2010.
He was the husband of
Stephanie Helveston, and the
son of Dr. Robert and Nancy
Helveston. He was also the
proud father of Kayla and
Stephanie Helveston, and step-
father to Lindsey and Megan
McCullough. Chris was broth-
er to Bobby Helveston, but his
cousins Keith and Mark
Helveston were also consid-
ered his brothers. In addition
to those mentioned, Chris is
survived by a host of family
members.
Chris was a member of the
Faith Presbyterian Church of
Wauchula, and for the last year
attended First Christian
Church with his wife. Most of
all, he was a child of God.
SAs a child and adolescent,
Chris excelled at every sport
and activity that was available
to him. As an adult, Chris
became a truck driver, by
trade, but his real love and pas-
sion was cooking and sports.
He loved to make people
happy through his culinary
abilities.
Growing up in Tennessee,
he was an avid fan of the
University of Tennessee. He
had a great love for football
and NASCAR. Chris also had
a deep pride and loyalty to his
family, his friends, and his her-
itage. There was nothing he
would not do for his family
and friends.
Many family members
came from various parts of
Florida and other states for the
memorial service which was
held on February 6th at 11 a.m.
in the sanctuary at First
Christian Church. The service
was officiated by Reverend
Brook Larrison, Pastor of
Faith Presbyterian Church and
Reverend Darin Canary, Pastor
of First Christian Church.
Because of circumstances,
Chris had no insurance. The
family has requested that those
wishing to do so, send dona-
tions to Chris' wife, Stephanie
Helveston at P.O. Box 486,
Wauchula, FL 33873.
Donations may also be sent to
her through either First
Christian Church or Faith
Presbyterian Church.

Outta The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


HEAD NORTH FOR DEER
Thus far, this deer season has been pretty good to me as far as
quantity goes.
I shot two does during doe week, and I got my season limit on
fall gobblers, but I have yet to even see horns, much less harvest a
buck. But I still have plenty of room left in my freezer, and I'm
not throwing in the towel just yet.
After all, there are still lots of hunting days left in my neck of
the woods, and my game camera's still taking pictures of some
pretty good bucks.
So if you're like me or if you live in the central or southern
part of the State and you don't mind hunting with a primitive
weapon, then point your pickup truck north, because the Northwest
Hunting Zone's deer season is still going' strong on private lands
and on a lot of the wildlife management areas.
The second phase, if you will, of muzzleloading gun season
runs Feb. 18-28 in this part of the Panhandle. This unique late sea-
son, which occurs only in the Northwest Zone, was established to
allow hunters the chance to hunt the rut that runs from late January
through February in this part of the state.
A $5 Muzzleloading Gun Permit is required to hunt during this
season, where, on private land, hunters have the choice of using a
muzzleloader, bow or crossbow.
On WMAs, this post-season's referred to as the archery/muz-
zleloading gun season. Hunters can use bows or muzzleloaders,
but no crossbows unless they possess a Disabled Crossbow
Permit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must have the $5
Archery Permit, and those using a muzzleloader need the $5
Muzzleloading Gun Permit.
The most common game to hunt during this season are deer
and wild hogs.
Only bucks may be taken, even if you use a bow, and one
antler must be at least five inches in length. On private land, the
daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deer on
WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before you
hunt.
Wild hogs aren't considered game animals on private lands,
and because of this, they can be taken year-round by most weapons
with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, there's also no bag or
size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons
except spring turkey. On selected WMAs, specific bag and size
limits do apply, so check the area's brochure to make sure.
No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season,
but leashed dogs can, however, be used to track a wounded deer if
necessary. And it's important to note that no turkeys may be taken
during this season.
Bows and crossbows must have a minimum draw weight of 35
pounds, and hand-held releases on bows are permitted.
Broadheads used in taking deer must have at least two sharpened
edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch.
During this season, you may use only muzzleloaders that take
black powder or a non-nitro-cellulose substitute and are fired by
wheel lock, flintlock or percussion cap ignition (including 209
primers). You may. not use muzzleloaders that require smokeless
powder or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabil-
ities. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders that fire single bullets must
be at least .40-caliber, and those firing two or more balls must be
20-gauge or larger.
And you're allowed to take deer and hogs over feeding sta-
tions on private land, but it's illegal to use bait on WMAs.
Thirteen of the WMAs in the Northwest Hunting Zone have


Letter To The Editor

Hardee 911/Fire-Rescue

Questions Are Continued


the late archery/muzzleloading gun season, and if you plan to hunt
any of 'em, you must have the $26 Management Area Permit as
well as your hunting license. And these nine don't require a quota
permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apalachicola River,
Choctawhatchee River, Econfina Creek, Escambia River, Point
Washington, Tate's Hell, Upper Chipola River and Yellow River
WMAs.
You can get all of the licenses and permits you'll need at any
tax collector's office, retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing sup-
plies, by calling toll-free 888-Hunt-Florida or by going online at
www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
So if you're like me and not quite ready to give up on deer
hunting, have no fear 'cause February's here! Grab your favorite
primitive weapon and head over to the Northwest Hunting Zone
where the rut's goin' on hot and heavy.

An open letter about the
Hardee County Fire Tax ...
I am Grady Johnson, just a
concerned citizen. Contrary to
the responses to my previous
letter to Hardee County, I fully
support our local firefighters
and have never indicated that I
did not support them. My con-
cern is with the cost and the
information that is being used
to justify the cost of maintain-
ing our fire-rescue system here
in Hardee County.
Chief Choate's response to
my concerns was not clear
regarding what is a fire or med-
ical call and a call that needs a
responding EMS/Fire-Rescue
unit. In an attempt to under-
stand the method that the coun-
ty manager and Chief Choate
are using to justify costs, I did a
public information request to
the office of Sheriff Arnold
Lanier to determine the docu-
mented 911 calls that were, in
fact, transferred to Polk County
requesting an ambulance and/or
fire-rescue. Our Commissioners
allow Mr. Albritton to sub out
our 911 emergency calls to Polk
County.
The office of the Sheriff
responded to my public infor-
mation request, which showed
2,225 911 calls for EMS/Fire-
Rescue for the fiscal year of
2009, which clears up the con-
fusion over the 4,000 versus
8,000 calls.
The fiscal year ends the last
day of September of each year
for government. From 10-1-09
through 12-31-09, the last quar-
ter of the year (three months),
there were 323 calls logged that
were transferred to Comm C for


Fire/Rescue/EMS dispatch..
From 1-1-2010 through 1-
31-2010, 135 calls were logged
and transferred to Comm C for
Fire/EMS dispatch.
According to our Sheriff's
Office, they receive the call, the
Sheriff's dispatchers transfer
the emergency and then our dis-
patchers in many of the calls
monitor the call so directions
can be given to Polk County.
Polk County and Chief Choate
are the only ones who may be
able to give the break-down of
the calls for what was medical
and what was fire.
In my investigation of volun-
teer fire-rescue in similar coun-
ties, I found that we are funding
over three million dollars a year
more for fire-rescue but yet we
have to sub out our 911 calls to
another county.
I asked Sheriff Lanier how
many extra dispatchers he need-
ed for a top-of-the-line 911
Emergency dispatch. Sheriff
Lanier stated that four were
needed and gave me a cost fig-
ure of $142,341.96, which
would include the cost of bene-
fits.
Time becomes a life-saver in
many of these calls and it would
seem far more effective and
efficient to have our own 911
dispatchers rather than transfer-
ring calls to Polk County, which
in turn, transfers the calls right
back to Hardee County re-
sponse units.

Sports Update
By Joan Seaman


WOW! There's a lot going on in sports in this in-between win-
ter and spring time.
First, I guess, there's probably not many who haven't heard of
:the resignation of Hardee Head football coach Tim Price, who
'wants to spend more time with his family and paying attention to
'his own health. A head coach's job sure is stressful, to say the least.
Coach Price has been great in working with his staff and team
in helping each to be the best they can be. We wish him well and
god-speed on whatever his future holds.

One of the exciting things happening for the Hardee football
.program is the signing of senior quarterback Ezayi Youyoute with
'the Georgia'Southern University Eagles. One of 23 signees, he will
,have a lot of academic and sports challenges ahead of him, but we
,feel he is up to them. It's a great opportunity. We keep tabs on,
-Weston Palmer, at Princeton, now recovering from knee surgery,
'and Jermaine King, doing well at West Virginia State, among oth-
"ers.

Speaking of Hardee sports alumni, Arnold Louis is doing quite
!well in his sophomore season for Savannah State. Statistics as of

WEAR RED!
Did you remember to wear red?
National Wear Red Day is celebrated on the first Friday of
February each year to promote women's heart disease awareness
and heart health. Nationwide, this observance provides an opportu-
nity for everyone to unite in this life-saving awareness movement
by showing off a favorite red dress, shirt, tie or the Red Dress Pin,
the symbol of heart disease awareness. The Red Dress Pin reminds
everyone that heart disease doesn't care what you wear it's the -
No. 1 killer of women.
Yes, that's right.
Did you know that more women die of heart disease than any
other disease, even breast cancer? In fact, according to the National
Heart, Lung & Blood Institute, one in four women dies of heart dis-
ease. And living with it can lead to disability and a decreased qual-
ity of life. My own mother suffered with heart disease for the last
10 to 15 years of her life, and I saw firsthand the decreased quali-
ty of her life that resulted in disability.
Because heart disease is usually a man's disease, research has
shown that few women take their risk seriously or personally.
Having just one risk factor can double your risk for developing
heart disease. Therefore, multiple risk factors will multiply your
risk.
So, what can you do to lower your risk9 Know the following
risk factors for heart disease. They are:
High blood pressure
High blood cholesterol
Diabetes
Smoking
Overweight/obesity
Physical inactivity
Family history of early coronary heart disease
Age (for women, 55 and older)
It is always best to talk with your family doctor to find out if
you are truly at risk. Then, do not delay. Take action! Stop smok-
ing, eat a heart healthy diet, be physically active, maintain a
healthy weight, and take prescribed medications. All of these
actions will help to control and reduce the risks.
In addition, here'are some simple measures you can take to
reduce your risk for heart disease. This is good information for both
males and females to follow:
Cook heart healthy recipes, like roasted beets with orange
sauce or cinnamon glazed baby carrots from the "Keep the Beat
Recipes: Deliciously Healthy Dinners" recipe book which can be
ordered online from the institute's Web site at nhlbiinfo@-
nhlbi.nih.gov.
Walk to the library or grocery store with your family to get
exercise.
Add a serving of vegetables to your meal at lunch or dinner.
Get at least 7-9 hours of sleep every night.
Keep track of your progress with worksheets in the "Keep
the Beat Healthy Choices for 2010 Calendar."
Replace full-fat versions of foods such as milk, yogurt and
salad dressing with the fat-free or low-fat kind as much as possible.
These are some ideas that you may not have thought about
before now that will help to get you started on the road to heart
health today.
Make February 2010 the month and year you began to discov-
er how to protect your heart. It is the only heart you will ever have,
so do all you can to keep it healthy. You will be glad you did!
For more information about healthy eating contact the Hardee
County Extension Office at 773-2164.


SGlobal Warming

Could Governor Jesse Ventura's conspiracy theory about Global Warming
be valid? The cold temperatures we have experienced in the last two
months certainly seem to refute apocalyptic claims of global warming.
Low temperatures neared and/or broke records set 30 and 40
years ago. In the 70s and 80s when these low temperature records were
set, we struggled to pay $1.00 per gallon for gasoline. Today, we expect
to pay over $2.50 a gallon for gasoline. What is the correlation between
low temperatures and the price of gas pe( gallon? This correlation cer-
tainly impacted a number of our electric utility customers this past month.
The City of Wauchula purchases electric power from Tampa
Electric Company. The City signed a 20 year contract with Tampa Electric
in 1993. The base rates for kilowatts consumed and monthly KW demand
to meet the City's requirements have not changed since the beginning of
the City's contract with Tampa Electric. What has drastically changed in
the past 17 years is the price of fuel which is the major component in
Tampa Electric's generation cost of the electricity it delivers to Wauchula.
The January bill from Tampa Electric indicates an 18% increase in
consumption over an eleven year average. A demand capacity consump-
tion of 17,010 KW is the highest in any month of the past eleven years of
data.
Our utility billing department has seen electric utility usage greater
than 100% for certain customers while other customers experienced no
increase in electric consumption during the month of December. To con-
firm the initial readings from meters we have reread numerous meters to
assure the readings taken to produce the bills were correct. The phe-
nomenon between customers' experiences can only be related to amount
of insulation in customer's home and customer's usage pattern during the
cold periods.
Monthly reports produced by Florida Municipal Electric Association
rank Wauchula electric rates 14th amongst 33 municipal electrical utilities.
Comparative rates for December 2009 show a savings of $2.43 for a resi-
dential customer for the City of Wauchula at 1000 kwh monthly usage
compared to a Peace River Electric residential customer at the same 1000
kwh monthly usage.
Go to http://www.publicpower.com/pdf/rates/2009/2009_decem-
ber_rates-c.pdf to view these comparative reports.
As City of Wauchula Commissioners, employees and customers
we have seen the spike in electrical bills due to the record breaking tem-
peratures and want to assure our constituents the high costs are due to
the cost of fuel experienced by all electric utility customers in our state this
winter. 2:11

Library Book Sale


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herad-Advocate
It's a steal! Get hours of fun
at little expense.
The Hardee County Library
will be open Saturday just for
you.
From 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.,
the library will be open just for
its Love Your Library book
sale, complete with a drawing
for door prizes and gift cards.
Stop by the library in
Courthouse Annex II, 315 N.
6th Ave. (at the corer of Oak
Street and U.S. 17 South),
Wauchula. A large selection of
books, videos, books on tapes,
documentaries and movies will
be available. Most are slightly
used and in excellent condition.
The sale is open to the public
of all ages. Proceeds will go
back to the library for furnish-
ings, books and other materials
for the library.
It's part of the local library's
continued efforts to meet the
needs of the public. From story-
time to classes, playaways to
the latest fiction, the library has
something for everyone. Last
year, there were 2,828 chil-
dren's contacts and 64,055
items went out for loan. There
were 59,286 people who went
through the front doors, obvi-
ously some coming often.
The library is divided now
into several sections: the chil-
dren's section; adolescents; and
adults stacks. There's an area to
do jigsaw puzzles, tables with
computers for community use
for research, looking for a book
or CD, etc.
FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
Beside sponsoring this Sat-
urday's book sale, the Friends
of the Library is an organization
of volunteers "to advocate for
quality library service for all of
people of Hardee County."
More volunteers are always
needed.
The group meets one time a
month, the first Monday at

promote library use in the com-
munity.
They work with the Hardee
County Library Advisory Board
of Gloria Davis, Dennis Jones,
Bonnie Kiger, Gayle Knight,
Jan McKibben, Vincent Val-
letutti and Diana Yeomans and
commission liaison Terry Atch-
ley in planning for the library's
needs and programs.
CURRENT PROGRAMS
Patti Lang is in her third year
as director of the library. With
budget cuts, her staff is limited,
but all are effective.
Dee Shackelford is primarily
in .charge of all the children's"
programs. There are full-time
assistants Rhonda Darty and
Regina.Ussery and part-timer
Nancy Collins.
-Each Monday at 10;30 a.m.,
there is the Home School Group
use of the library. On Thurs-
days, at 10 a.m., there is Story
Time for children ages 2 to 5,
which includes a game, music
and reading a book or two. In
the summer, there is a more
intensive children's program
(see attached list of materials
needed for it).
A library card is free for any-
one with a current local address.
For visitors to the county, there
is a guest card at a $1 charge.
There are nine public access
computers available.
If someone doesn't want one
of the 65,405 items available at


Saturday
the local library, one cante
ordered through the Heartland
Cooperative six-county interli-
brary loan service. If none of
them have the item wanted,
there is an interlibrary loan
service throughout the state,
which will ship the item. There
is even a "hot pink cart" of
recent bestsellers for one week
loan instead of the usual two
weeks.
There are limited genealogy
resources, or people are referred
to information at the Pioneer
Park Cracker Museum.
There are all kinds of elec-
tronic data available, a college
data base for students, medical
or business research, or for kids
research projects. There are
constantly updated reference
materials on careers and schol-
arships, historical data such as
yearbooks.
There are audio books and
one of 18 playaways (digital
audioss players similar to a
Walkman) equipped with its
own set of ear buds and batter-
ies so the hearing impaired,
bedridden, and people who
want to listen to a book on
vacation drives or while exer-
cising can "read" a book. These
are in fiction and non-fiction.
There are a variety of current
newspapers and magazines, as
well as past issues and micro-
film for people looking for.such
things as obituaries or other
genealogical items.
There is a new book club. At
the next meeting, on Feb. 16,
from 10 a.m. to noon, when
"The Girl with the Pearl
Earring," by Tracy Chevalier
will be the topic.
Lang is considering a com-
puter: class, but each one will
have to bring their own laptop.
Other ideas are for speakers on
a variety of topics, display cases
featuring a particular interest,

just chat, contact the library at

Letter To Editor

A Farmer's Fantasy


As president of the state's
largest agricultural organiza-
tion, I'm pleased to present a
tale that must never come true.
Farm Bureau, the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture, UF/-
IFAS and Florida commodity
organizations are working to
make sure this flight into fanta-
sy will never reflect reality. I
believe it demonstrates how
scary life could be without our
agricultural organizations and
institutions.
Five years into the second
decade of the 21st Century,
farmer Frank Baffington is
shaking his head. His farm, a
blessing to his family for the
better part of 100 years, is driv-
ing him to distraction.
Not that he and his family
haven't faced challenges. Hur-
ricanes, freezes, droughts and
bad markets :- generations of
Baffingtons faced them all
down, displaying the adaptabil-
ity, toughness, character and
determination that characterize
Florida farmers and ranchers.
Now, he thinks he might give
up the land his grandfather
began working back when FSU
was still a girls' school. Canker
and citrus greening have taken a
toll on the groves. He thinks
that if UF/IFAS researchers
hadn't had their funding cut by
the Legislature back in 2010,
the industry could have defeat-
ed or at least arrested those dis-
eases. As it is now, the door is
closing on Florida's citrus
industry.
The family beef operation is
likewise curtailed. Activist
groups passed a constitutional
initiative effectively outlawing
commercial marketing of ani-
mals and animal products.
That's okay, though. He
couldn't have afforded to keep
the cattle anyway because of
the costly Title V ("Cow Tax")
permits Washington has im-
posed because the bureaucrats
said his cows'were belching too
much methane. The cattle's
absence leaves his pastures
teeming with weeds, some of


which are likely considered
invasive. Nature, he thinks rue-
fully, can be a bad mother to
land that isn't managed.
He's been entertaining the
idea of planting another crop.
New grass cultivars that can be
used to produce energy might
hold some promise, if scientists
finally find a way to produce
energy from them that makes
economic sense. And maybe he
can find a niche in local mar-
kets for some of the designer
vegetables that are more and
more prized by the locavores.
But, putting pencil to paper,
he doesn't see how he can make
a profit because he can barely
fill his tractor with fuel or his
tanks with fertilizer. The new
cap-and-trade law has driven
prices of petroleum-based prod-
ucts to alarming heights.
The sweet iced tea he is sip-
ping leaves a bitter taste in his
mouth as he remembers how
the politicians promised to save
the world by curbing carbon
dioxide emissions.
At one point, it seemed as if
American politicians thought
the United States could fix the
problem all by itself by discour-
aging the use of fossil fuels.
They failed to heed the cries of
rural America and now
Baffington wonders if he can
work his way out of the prob-
lem.
He would like to chuck it all
for a few days. Maybe clear his
head by going fishing; that's
always helped him to work
through things. But now his
favorite farm pond is under the
jurisdiction of the EPA and the
Clean Water Restoration Act
and off limits to rod and reel.
Once he welcomed rain-
storms, convinced that he and
his property performed a public
service by recharging the
aquifer. Now, he hopes for long,
dry spells because EPAs
Numeric Nu-trient Criteria call
for nutrient levels that are actu-
ally lower than most rainfall.
Still . Baffington is a
farmer, so the idea of putting


in a new crop appeals to him.
He could convert part of his
land to crops and maybe raise
the seed money by developing
another tract.
Oh, wait. He has .forgotten
about Amendment 4, "Home-
town Democracy," the constitu-
tional amendment voters passe4
in 2010. Can he afford a strong
enough political campaign to
convince his neighbors and the
voters in the rest of the county '
that they should allow him to
change his zoning? Will they
care, faced as they are with 150
other amendments on the bal-
lot?
He feels pains return to his
chest. He should see the doctor
tomorrow. He isn't sure he
wants to go on. Yet he dare not
die. Not now. The Death Tax
has returned, full-force, threat-
ening to impoverish his family
should he join the departed.
Head down, he kicks disconso-
lately at the dirt.
"Dear, stop kicking," says
his wife, lying beside him on
the bed. "You have been so rest-
less lately." Baffington sits up,
startled, and gazes at the clock
glowing on the nightstand.
It's 3 a.m. The date is Feb.
14, 2010, he remembers. It's
Valentine's Day. A Sunday, and
in a few hours he will prepare
breakfast and serve it with a
bouquet to the woman he has
loved for more than 30 years.
His mood brightens as he
remembers their first meeting at
a Farm Bureau Young Farmer
conference so long ago.
Baffington smiles, his confi-
dence returning. Agriculture is
a community and its people,
organizations and institutions
are interwoven into his family's
life, one of their strongest con-
nections to people of like mind.

Hardee Tigers Win First 2 Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County's first semi-
pro team already making a
name for itself.
The Hardee Tigers, a member
of the National Independent
Football League, which plays in
an arena football format, is now
2-0.
Led by Mike Ioannidis, head
coach/offensive coordinator,
assisted by defensive coordina-
tor Myron Refoure and special
teams coach Osles Lazarre, the
team practices three times a
week on the field just west of
the Northside Baptist Church,
912 N. Eighth Ave., Wauchula.
The beginning, the Hardee
squad will use a home field in
Ocala, "which the league has
been great to help us with," said
loannidis.
The team began with a Jan.
31 exhibition game versus the
league's all-star team. The
Tigers won 8-6. The collected
300 yards with running back
Macjaveus Thompson picking
up 107 on the ground.
Coach loannidis said, "I'm
very proud of these men. They
have fought through adversity
to keep this thing going. As far
as the game itself, we have
much to work on. We will not
continue to win games with six
turnovers."
Last weekend, Hardee
-opened its official season with a
game, against the Ocala
Wildbulls, who were last years
CFFL champions. The
Wildbulls opened the game
with a 60-yard touchdown
drive, later adding a second
touchdown.
Down 0-14 at the half, the
team made adjustments and
regrouped to win the game 16-
14. Coach loannidis said after
the game, "The defense stepped
up big today. Our offense had
moments. But we have players
still adjusting to the speed of
this game."
-" After the game, the league
commissioner and the league
president commended the
Tigers on their efforts and class.

Musicale Hosts


Dance Troupe


The Wednesday Musicale of
Wauchula hosted a dance pro-
gram entitled "Jump at de Sun"
on Jan. 13.
The dance/theater event was
inspired by the life of author
Zora Neale Hurston.
Born in 1891 in Alabama,
Hurston grew up in Florida in
Eatonville, but left Florida
while in her teens. In 1917 she
found herself in Baltimore with
no education but a "gift" for
writing. She worked as a maid
while finishing high school and
earning a degree from Barnard
College.
By 1935 she was a published
author.
Hurston retired to Fort
Pierce, where today her life is
celebrated annually at "Zor-
afest." The dance/theater piece,
choreographed and directed by
Anna Preston, has been a part of
Zorafest for four years.
The musical score was com-,
posed by Don Ciccone, former
member of The Four Seasons
and celebrated songwriter, ar-
ranger and producer. The text
comes from quotes of Hurston,
compiled by and with addition-
.. ,, ,, ,


al text by Peter Preston of
Wauchula, Anna Preston's
brother and Hardee Senior High
School guidance counselor.
The title "Jump at de Sun"
comes from an exhortation
from Hurston's mother, who
encouraged .her children to
"jump at de sun." Hurston
added, "We might not land on
the sun, but at least we would
get off the ground."
This dance project reflects
Hurston's encouragement. An-
na Preston works with at-risk
teens. The project partners
community dancers, teens, and
dance professionals to bring
Hurston's passion for the arts to
life.
The Wauchula City Com-
mission permitted use of the
City Hall Auditorium and Bob
Klobuchar provided technical
assistance.

The city of Bowling Green has received federal stimulus funding for Main Street
repaving, new sidewalks on the south side of West Maid Street, and new U.S. 17 light-
ing on south Main Street, City Manager Yvonne Kimball told the Hardee Rotary Club on
Feb. 3. The 1.5 miles of resurfacing will cost $1.1 million, the half-mile of sidewalk
$120,000, and the highway lighting $900,000, for 19 light poles plus wiring. The side-
walk will be completed in March, the repaving will take 10 more weeks and the light-
ing will be completed this fall. Shown (from left) are Tom Barlett, Pat Barlett, Kimball,
club President Harold Davis and Joe Jones.


YOUTH RECREATION


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
Max Ullrich, coach of the Hardee Explosion girls' softball team, spoke to the Wauchula
Lions Club last Thursday about the need for the county to complete the four baseball
fields under construction behind the Wauchula National Guard Armory. Over 400
youngsters are involved in recreation sports. Hardee County now has three baseball
and two softball fields, but said work has stopped on the four fields due to lack of fund-
ing. "Hardee needs more softball and baseball fields for youth form T-ball through age
15. Pictured (from left) are Paul Samuels, Arden Messer,'Ullrich and Kathleen Roehm.
Ullrich said a top girl softball players can get a college scholarship.

Wildcats Whip Dragons, Start Districts


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat five took
the game to Lake Placid last
week to end the season on a vic-
torious note.
With the cancellation of
Friday's home games against
Sebring, Hardee finished the
season last Tuesday and pre-
pared to begin Class 3A-Di-
strict 11 competition this week.
Seeded third, the Wildcats
traveled to Bradenton Southeast
on Wednesday night to take on
second-seed Sarasota Booker at
6 p.m.. Whoever won the
Monday night quarterfinal
between leSoto and Cardinal
Mooney would face top-seed
Southeast in Wednesday night's
late game. The two Wednes-
day night winners play in the
championship game on Friday
at 7 p.m.
At Lakeland Placid last
Tuesday, Hardee started slowly,
down 8-7 at the end of the first
feeling-out quarter. The was the
only meeting this season
between these teams.
Hardee really got going in the
second period, outscoring the
Dragons 12-5 to take a 19-13
halftime advantage.
The second half was a barn-
burner. Hardee outdid Lake
Placid 23-17 to increase its


advantage to 42-20, only to
have Lake Placid attempt a
fourth-quarter comeback within
four points.
The Wildcats were proficient
at the free throw line to keep the
Dragons at bay. In the fourth
period, Jajuan Hooks hit on
seven-of-10 at the charity stripe
and Sammy Cisneros canned all
four of his foul shots.
Andre Wilson kept Lake
Placid within distance. Thirteen
of his game-high 24 points
came in the-fourth quarter
drive, when he notched four-of-
four free throws.
For Hardee, high man was
sophomore guard Andrew
Hooks with 22 points. He hit
five deuces, a trio of treys and
three-of-six free throws, with
11 points in the fourth period
keeping Hardee in front of Lake
Placid.
Jajuan Hooks finished with a
dozen points, while Antjuan
Jones had seven, D'Vonte
Hooks and Keshun Rivers each
five, Carl "Junior" Brown and
Cisneros each four and Tre'
Anderson with two points.
Meanwhile, the Wildcat JV
finished up its season with a 40-
29 loss to Lake Placid. The jun-
ior Dragons had balanced scor-
ing with eight players with


eight or less points apiece.
For the junior 'Cats, it was
Jimmy Vallejo with 10 points
and Murrell Winter with 9 as
co-leaders. Alonzo Casso .had
five, Bobby Brown three and
Daniel Boehm. two points.
Josh Fowler, Ricardo Fermin
and Jessie Belcher helped with
the floor game.
"It was a very humbling
experience this season," said JV
head coach Rod Smith. "Not
many of the team had much
experience, some were out for
the first time. You can't just
come out for basketball, espe-
cially when you haven't played
at all.
"They were good kids; it's
unfortunate they have to go
through this experience to
learn. They showed spurts of
what playing as a team. Jimmy
(Vallejo) had to play out of
position and did a good job.
Hat's off to him. If we'd had a
-solid point guard, we may
have done better," summed up
Smith.

Greetings from Fort Green!
It was exciting when the tele-
vision actually mentioned Fort
Green during the bad weather
last Friday. Thank goodness the
tornado did not materialize over
our neighborhood.
Ms. Mildred had a good
birthday dinner with just what
she wanted, fried fish, swamp
cabbage, grits and cole slaw.
Her daughter, Gwen Albritton,
and Sherman and I enjoyed din-
ner with her. Of course our
diner is in the middle of the day,
and I was amazed at the crowd
in the restaurant.
She enjoyed seeing Herman
and Ruth Moye and David
Terrell. These were youngsters
years ago when she knew them.
It really seemed to please her
,when they spoke to her. She
told them she was 94! Dot Link
had been out and visited with
her the day before and brought
her a birthday card, and she said
she received cards from Patty
Jo Abbott and Sharon Pappas.
Their dad was Vernon Abbott,
Ms. Mildred's older brother.
It was good to see Don Evors
at the restaurant. He is feeling
better, he said, and shared with
Herman to stay positive! Her-
man said he was getting treat-
ment every three weeks. Please
continue to keep these in prayer.
I saw Roy Jacobs and he said
his wife, Tina, was doing well
after her stroke but I had not
been home an hour when Faye
Davis called and wanted the
prayer chain for her as they
were airlifting her out. None of
us should take our health for
granted.
Ronnie Thomas still needs
our prayers. And speaking of
Ronnie, his sister, Doris
Thornton, has some new neigh-
bors. Of course, in the country,
neighbors can be a mile away!
Evelyn and Wayne Webb have
moved into Estelle Albritton's
home place. They have been
coming to church recently.


Doris said it was easy to
remember their names because
her brother, Wayne, was mar-
ried to Evelyn! That sure helps
me, too!
Ricky Yarley and Dawn, Tim,
Barbara, Andrew and Shaun
Casey had an exciting and great
weekend. They went to the pro-
fessional bull riding at the St.
Pete Forum, and Barbara said
you were on the front of your
seat and that eight seconds for
each rider sure seemed long.
Probably seemed longer to the
rider!
Everyone watched the televi-
sion about Groundhog Day.
When we were young it did not
matter what that hog did in
Pennsylvania or New York, it
was just what type of weather
we had in aw area on Feb. 2. If
it was a pretty day, and we
could see our shadows then we
were destined for six more
weeks of cold weather!
Of course, that was before
television and you just had a
radio and were too busy trying
to listen to Tom Mix when you
got in from school. After he was
over, there were chores! And
all this weather prediction was
just as good weather prediction
as the dog fennels or golden
rods blooming in the fall! Life
was just different back then, but
we all thought everything was
super.
All the 4-H youth are work-
ing hard on their animals get-
ting them in tip-top shape for
the fair. The fair will be here
before we know it and it begins
early this year, on a Saturday,
Feb. 20.
Slick Thompson's dad passed
away in Tennessee. Our deepest
sympathy is extended to Slick.
It is always hard when your par-
ents make that last journey and
when thatTast one travels on, it
seems harder.
Remember to pray for each
other and our country. -

Q: I've read that aspara-
gus can fight cancer: Is that
true?
A: You may have read a
story circulating on the Internet
that suggests a daily dose of
pureed asparagus can cure can-
cer. That story has no support in
peer-reviewed research jour-
nals, and I've been unable to
find any information on prior
publications or background on
the expert source of the story.
On the other hand, asparagus
certainly has value as one part
of a plant-based diet that re-
duces cancer risk. It's a good
source of folate (a B vitamin
essential to maintain healthy
DNA) and vitamins C and A, as
well as antioxidant compounds
like glutathione and rutin.
Asparagus is low in calories
(as long as you don't smother it
in high-fat cheese sauce or but-
ter), so like most other vegeta-
bles, it can help to satisfy hung-
er while promoting a healthy
weight, which research now
says has major impact on reduc-
ing risk of several common can-
cers.
Q: I've heard that farro is
a super-nutritious whole
grain, but can't find it in my
grocery store. Does it go by
another name?
A: Farro is also called
emmer. It's an ancient strain of
wheat from the Middle East that
became popular in Italy and is
now gaining popularity
throughout the world.
In the United States, farro is
usually sold in a form called
semi-pearled (sometimes label-
ed semiperlato), indicating
some of the bran layer has been
removed to allow faster cook-
ing. Still highly nutritious, it
cooks in 20 to 25 minutes.
The completely whole grain
farro needs to be soaked in
water overnight and then
cooked for 30 to 45 minutes.
Farro's chewy texture and
hearty, nutty flavor are tradi-
tionally favored for use in soups
and stews, but it can also be
great as a side dish, as a meat-
less main dish mixed with
beans or as a change from rice
dishes. Farro's nutritional value
is similar to other wheat grains


like spelt and wheat berries; it's
slightly higher in fiber and pro-
tein than barley and brown rice,
and not quite as high-protein as
quinoa.
Unfortunately, it's no bargain
and usually sold only at special-
ty stores and over the Internet
for three to four times the cost
of brown rice.
Q: I only drink beer two
nights a week but can that be
causing my weight gain?
A: When looking for eating
habits that can lead to weight
gain, it's usually best to look at
what you eat and drink on a
daily basis, but once or twice
weekly treats can have an
impact if they're really high-,
calorie.
, How many beers do you
drink on each of those, twice
weekly beer-drinking nights? If
you have one or two 12-ounce
beers, that totals 300 to 600
calories weekly. That could be
responsible for slow creeping
weight gain (less than a pound a
month), but is unlikely to be
responsible for a more rapid
gain.
However, larger amounts
even twice a week certainly
could produce larger weight
gain. For example, if each of
those nights you have five 12-
ounce beers (or one 60-ounce
-pitcher), that's enough calories
to produce nearly a half-pound
of extra body fat each week. If
those beers are accompanied by
snacks like chips, nachos, pizza

can easily add from a few hun-
dred to a thousand extra calo-
ries then those beer-drinking
nights could make you gain a
few pounds every month.

Q: What is it about
bananas that makes the
Banana Diet so successful?
A: Actually, stories of short-
term weight loss without data
from controlled studies aren't
grounds for calling this diet
"successful." Bananas provide
fiber and nutrients that make
them a healthful part of a bal-
anced diet, but don't expect
them to provide any special
power to promote weight loss.
The Banana Diet has gained
Internet fame for supposedly
aiding quick weight loss.
However, people's reported
weight loss could have come
from other banana diet rules,
that include avoiding all ice
cream, alcohol, evening snacks
and all beverages other than
water with meals.
Arbitrary rules make popular
diets work in the short-term, but
people often return to old eating
habits once they get tired of the
absolute rules. One problem
with the Banana Diet is that it
limits breakfast to bananas (70
to 140 calories each) that may
promote immediate weight loss,
but in the long run can sabotage
your efforts. Long-term studies
suggest that eating a small pro-
portion of your daily calories in
the morning increases the ten-
dency to overeat later in the day
and is more likely to hurt than
help weight control.

night, after racking up one win
and one loss in their last two
outings.

oral salaries in municipalities of
comparable size to Wauchula.

The county commissioners
are taking a good look at the old
First Baptist Church of Wau-
chula structure offered by the
American Legion for a county
library. The commission took
no action last Thursday on a
recommendation by the adviso-
ry board that the county hire an
architect to come up with esti-
mated costs for renovating the
structure for use as a library.
Jim Hetherington, acting coun-
ty administrator, informed the
commission that the library
board had taken a tour of the
church and was overwhelmed
by the size of it.

Coach Bob Fittro had his
charges fired up for the game
against the Green Dragons from
Lake Placid, and his Wildcats
rewarded him with a 52-47 vic-
tory. The much-needed win
evened the Wildcats' season
record at 8 and 8. They now
have a 3 and 5 district record as
tournament time approaches.

How would you like a job
with short hours, good pay, long
holiday vacations and every
summer off? The job: school

The Wauchula City Council
Monday night agreed to adver-
tise for three people to serve as
school crossing guards at two
locations along busy Florida
Avenue. Although only two
people will be needed to man
the posts at any one given time,
the city wants to hire a third
person for standby status.

"Now's the time to honor

U.S. 17 from Bowling Green to
Wauchula as "The Doyle Parker
Memorial Highway" was
heartily endorsed by the Hardee
County Commission last week.
The current commission
responded positively to the
request of former commissioner
Benny Albritton, who spoke on
behalf of half a dozen business
leaders. Present were Jim See
and Marcus Shackleford, with
Edgar Davis, Bill Crews and
Keith Davis.expected later.

paced the Lady Wildcat hoop-

SPOTLIGHT
Jim and Nicki Finney are
from Grand Rapids, Mich., both
their families being friends
prior and then they both met up
again later and history was
made. They have been married
39 years, have two children and
three grandchildren.
Jim retired as a commercial
artist working for a television
station for 20 years in Grand
Rapids, he also taught art at a
technical center for 20 more
years. He is helping his son
each year instruct fifth graders
how to build an authentic birch-
bark canoe. They received the
bark from Russia this year;
most of the bark comes from
the Upper Peninsula and from
other states.
Jim is indeed our "artist in
residence." He's published a
beautiful professional art book
entitled "Michigan, Wild and
Wonderful."
Nicki also has a teacher's
degree and has worked with
preschoolers and elementary
children. This is her greatest
joy, but also enjoys sewing and
reading. Jim enjoys wood-
working and has completed two
, canoe paddles and is a beautiful
wood carver.
They both love our park with
all the friendly people and so
many activities, and they have
been a joy and a wonderful, tal-
ented, and friendly addition to
our park family. If you get a
chance, seek them out and add
new friends to your life.

GARAGE SALE
I think your writer had a
Senior Moment. She wrote two
weeks ago that it was on the
20th. It is this Saturday,
thel3th. It will start at 8:30
a.m. You just have a couple
days here to get ready. In past
years there have been several
places on the park that have
items out. When you come into
the park make sure to cover the
entire park. You just don't know
Where you will find that special
thing that you just can't live
without.
SOUP SUPPER
Don't forget the cancer bene-
fit Friday evening at 5. Come
on down to the hall and for $6
you can have all the soup you
care to eat. All the proceeds will
go to a very worthy cause. As
we all know, cancer is one dis-
ease we are all afraid of.

DINNER CRUISE
Several of our residents are
going on a dinner cruise on
Sunday. This is going to be a
very large weekend for some
people. So, come Monday, if
you see different ones walking
in their sleep it will be because
they just aren't as young as they
used to be.

GRAND OLD OPRY SHOW
.If you care for a laugh or two
don't forget the show. I promise
'a laugh. The cast has worked
real hard on this one. I am let-
ting you know ahead of time,
the show starts at 7 p.m. and
you need to get there early. The
doors will open at 6.
The cast is trying to get
everything up on the stage so
there will be better visibility. In
the past we had acts on the


floor. We are trying real hard to
get acts visible.

GAMES
Cribbage was played on
Tuesday evening with winners
being first George Jarvis, sec-
ond Junior Atchinson and third
Eleanor Dale. Pokeno was also
played; there were no winners
given to me.

Bingo was played on
Thursday evening. Virginia
Kern won the first coverall.
Peggy Ardelean won the second
coverall. Joe Spears was able to

Donald won the first coverall.
Charlotte Wilson won the sec-
ond coverall.

MEETING
Don't forget Tuesday after
the busy weekend there will be
an association meeting. That

important to be there. Everyone
needs to be informed on how
the park is run and what the
association is responsible for.

HOTO BY RALPH HARRISON
Residents at Little Charlie Creek RV Park recently held a benefit for the Ken Weis Foundation, a local organization
that raises money to aid local cancer victims. Tickets were sold for over 100 gift baskets donated by local busi-
nesses. There was also a miscellaneous auction. Together the residents raised $3,615 for cancer. Some of the park
Group gathered Monday to present the check to Don Bissette for the foundation.

LINCOLN AT HIS MOST HUMAN
"If I were to try to read, much less answer, all the attacks made
on me, this shop might as well be closed for any other business. I
do the very best I know how the very best I can; and I mean to
keep doing so until the end. If the end brings me out all right,
what's said against me won't amount to anything. If the end
brings me out wrong, 10 angels swearing I was right would make
no difference."
Abraham Lincoln said those words.
He endured denigration and disparagement not only from the
South during the Civil War, but also from many Northerners who
disagreed with.his policies, including members of his own party
who were sure that they knew more and could do better than this
president.
In the 145 years since his death, Lincoln has become an
American icon of such monumental proportions that we tend to for-
get the daily struggle he waged with the human frailties of those
around him, as well as his own.
There's a story told of a Union officer who sought out Lincoln
at a hilltop cottage in Washington, D.C., that the president and his
family used as a summer retreat. The man begged Lincoln for per-
mission to recover the body of.his wife, who had been killed in a
steamer collision. Because the army had closed off the area, he was
unable to retrieve her remains for burial.
So how did Abraham Lincoln react? With the warm compas-
sion we've come to identify with him? On the contrary, he asked
angrily, "Am I to have no rest? Is there,no harbor or spot when or
where I may escape this constant call? Why do'you follow me out
here with such business as this? Why do you not go to the War
Office?"


The officer left.
But that's not the end of the story. The next morning the pres-
ident went to the hotel where the man was staying and apologized
and promised to see that his request was granted. But Lincoln did
one thing more:. He asked the man never to tell his children about
the shameful behavior of the president of the United States.
I, however, hope that officer did tell his children, and his
friends and neighbors as well, because the incident reveals Lincoln
at his most human. Known for the easy access everyday people
had to him, Lincoln generally handled such encounters in his usual
thoughtful, engaging way. But in this meeting, the president
revealed his frustration with one more demand placed on him,
probably at the end of a day filled with urgent requests.
However natural his irritated response was, what truly stands
out is that in reflecting on the incident, Lincoln was ashamed of his
reaction. He did not try to justify his outburst to himself by point-
ing to the burdens of his office.. Instead he found the man whose
.wife had just died; apologized for his angry words and offered him
-the practical help he needed so desperately.
Then Abraham Iincoln returned to the business of running the
affairs of a country at war with itself, eventually steering a course
to victory and reconciliation. In April, 1865, Lincoln was assassi-
nated and the newly reunited nation mourned the loss of a leader
who had literally given his life for its preservation.
The personal effects found in Lincoln's pockets were turned
over to his son, Robert, and eventually given to the Library. of
Congress. The box containing them was not opened until they
were placed on view in 1976 for the USA's Bicentennial. Among
the items were two pairs of spectacles, a pocketknife, a handker-
chief and a leather wallet containing nine newspaper clippings sup-
porting Lincoln and his views.
This great, complex, vital man, now a giant figure in history,
appreciated the simple reassurance of some encouraging words ...
just like the rest of us.

A VALENTINE HEART
February is designated as Heart Month. With Valentine's Day
coming in the middle of the month, it is a good time to'focus on
heart health.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States
and is a rhajor cause of disability. In 2009, an estimated 785,000
Americans had a new heart attack and about 470,000 had a recur-
rent attack.
The chance of developing heart disease can be reduced by tak-
ing steps to prevent and control factors that put us at greater risk.
Most of us know what that includes: nutrition, exercise and fitness.
Also, knowing the signs and symptoms of heart attack are cru-
cial to having the most positive outcomes if a heart attack should
happen. The signs to watch for are:
Chest Discomfort Most heart attacks involve dis-
comfort in the middle of the chest. It can feel like uncom-
fortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain.
Upper Body Discomfort There may be pain in one or
both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach area.
Shortness of Breath The feeling of not being able to
take a deep breath may happen along with the chest pain
or by itself.
Other Symptoms Sweating, nausea or dizziness.
Symptoms for women may be slightly different than for men.
About 35 percent of women do not have chest discomfort during a
heart attack. Women are more likely to report pain in the middle
or upper back, neck or jaw; shortness of breath; nausea or vomit-
ing; indigestion; loss of appetite; weakness or fatigue; cough;
dizziness or palpitations (rapid beating) of the heart.
Keep your heart healthy! And happy Valentine's Day!

Track Club Goes To Gainesville


COOL REWARD


The Herald-Advocate
tUSPS38-78-0)

Thursday, February 11, 2010


By MAYA CARPENTER
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Three members of the local
Mark Anthony Track Club
brought home medals.
Representing was just a por-
tion of what the members of the
club were doing at the third
annual Jimmy Carnes Invi-
tational 'on Jan. 30-31 in
Gainesville.
Out of 66 track teams, the
local club came in 19th place,
with an overall total of 27.50
points.
Five students from the club
traveled to Gainesville for the
indoor meet held at the nation-
ally known Stephen O'Connell
Center. Making the trip were
Brandon Beatty, Adarius
Council, Jabri Knightin, Murad
Ottalah and Miracle Thompson.
"I was very impressed with
the points we scored as a team,"
said track coach James Car-
penter. "This was the highest
we've ever scored in a major
track meet," he said.
Nine-year-old Thompson ran
the 55-meter dash and came in


with a time of 9.77 seconds for
13th place. She also ran the
200-meter dash in a time of
36.5 seconds, for llth place.
A newcomer to the club,
Knightin, 7, won the bronze
medal in the 55-meter dash,
coming in with a time of 9.53
seconds. He also won the
bronze in the long jump and
came in 16th place in the 200-
meter dash with a time of 35.0
seconds.
"For Knightin's first time
out, he had a lot of energy and
managed to bring back a
medal," commented Carpenter.
Council, 10, also came home
with a bronze medal in the long
jump.
In addition, he came in 14th
in the 55-meter dash at 8.69
seconds, and out of 24 runners,
Council came in 17th place in
the 200-meter dash, coming in
at 32.69 seconds.
Beatty, who like Thompson
.has been a part of the club since
its inception, brought home a
silver medal in the 800-meter
dash, placing second in a time


of 2.32 minutes. The eighth
grader also came in 31st in the
mile run with a time of 6:06.11.
Twelfth-grader Ottalah
placed 34 of 61 runners in the
400-meter dash with a time of
55.47 seconds. Ottalah also ran
the 200-meter dash, and came
in 65th of out 82 runners with a
time of 25.16 seconds.
The invitational is designed
to allow youth, high school and
collegiate athletes to compete.
The meet is named in honor of
the former University of Florida
head track and field coach
Jimmy Carnes, who coached
from 1965 to 1976. He later
became an advocate for track
and field on the national and
international scale.
To get the students to the
invitational, Carpenter had
sponsorship from the Hardee
County Athletic Foundation.
Coach Carpenter said "The
students enjoy these kinds of
meets because they challenge
them. I'm looking forward to
many more wins and many
more medals," he concluded.

The Parent Teacher Organization at Zolfo Springs Elementary School hosted an ice-
cream social in November for students who earned a spot on the school's Honor Roll
for the first quarter. Students received printed invitations to the event, and then were
treated to their choice of flavors. Scholars are shown enjoying the reward in the photo
above, while scoopers below hand out cups of the cool treat.Little ones at Zolfo
Springs Elementary School had fun sharing a Thanksgiving feast last November with
their parents and all their school friends. The time together helped youngsters under-
stand the significance of the holiday and its traditions.

SHardee girls basketball hopes
to advance in district competi-
tion didn't pan out.
The girls went to Sarasota
Booker last week, intending to
overcome the number four seed
Lady Tornadoes, who were
hosting Class 3A, District 11
playoffs this year.
Hardee had almost won at
home against Booker in

December, losing by only five
points. They had a harder time
at Booker in early January,
coming home with a 14-point
loss.
Hardee had improved consid-
erably and won its last three
games, giving the Lady
Wildcats hope for an upset win.
It was not to be as the girls
succumbed to the relentless
scoring of Christina Davis, who
finished with 19 points. There
was no other Lady Tornado in
double-digit scoring.
Hardee went down 44-22,
with several players scoring,
but none dominating. Elvira
Sevin led with five points.
Ashley Louis had four points,
Ivette Cisneros, and Tiffany


Prestridge each three, and
Ashley Nichols, Robyn Tank-
sley and LaCresha Carlton each
two points and Summer Palmer
one-of-two at the free throw
line.
Also contributing were Maria
Avalos, Kayla "Louie" Nichols,
Paige Massey and Allison
Hunter-Allen.
Coach Don Gray loses none
to graduation, having an all-
underclass squad this season.
Expected to return are juniors
Servin, Prestridge, Louis, Av-
alos and Carlton; sophs Palmer,
Ashley Nichols, Tanksley and
Massey; and freshmen Kayla
Nichols and Hunter-Allen.

poets have long
compared love

to flowers
blooming. In
Song of Songs
2:12, we read,
"Flowers appear
on the earth; the
season of singing
has come...."
In a garden, a
seed is planted...
perhaps the first
date. If the
relationship is
well matched...
the seed grows in
fertile soil. A new
couple discovers
each other's
interests... the "garden" is tended and watered. Weeds may try to
push through, but they are uprooted and discarded... the couple
learns to negotiate their differences. The relationship flowers...
delicate buds give way to fragrant petals and mature love is born.
Around Valentine's )ay, know that Irrue love is stlongl a1nd
enduring. When weeds tr)y to encroach keep in niiiid tIhat (od is the
Master Gardener. With Hlim, love will blossom anad Ilourish. Iiold
up that love in worship this week.

'SEEDS
FROM
,. THE
SOWER
,a I r,,, .


One night a guest bumped
into a maid who was serving
dinner, and threw coffee
against the white wall.
Immediately an ugly stain
began to spread all over the
wall.
The guest was embarrassed.
He apologized. But Sir Edwin
Landseer, a famous painter,
jumped to his feet and said,
"Don't worry."
Taking a pen from his pock-
et, he began to sketch around
that awful stain. Soon there
emerged a picture of a mag-
nificent royal stag;
Has your life been stained
by an ugly sin? Confess it to
the Lord. He can make some-
thing beautiful out of your
life, if you'll let Him!

THE ROAD OF LOVE

This life has tragedies and fears,

that cause heartbreak and tears,

amazingly...we stand here today.



And though our road is hard,

we still follow our hearts,

soon enough...we find our way.



2ur hearts remain strong,

and our love pure of wrongs,

like it was the day of our wed.



You will always be mine,

till the end of all time,

lest this world sees to us dead.



Then our souls shall entwine,

and reach bliss so divine,

that happiness will flow free.



Yet below or above,

none compare to our love,

that we will share eternally.

'Motorcycles On Main Street'

Event Feb. 13 In Wauchula


Dear Editdr,
I wanted to publicly thank the
City of Wauchula's City
Council, Mayor David Royal,
the city attorney, along with
Jessica Newman and Olivia
Minshew, for their work on
changing the ordinance to
enable "Motorcycles on Main
Street" to have an event where
we will be allow to have a beer
garden on Saturday, Feb. 13,
2010. Wauchula is growing
with the times, and I am certain


that it will be for the better.
I know that the community
has some ideas of what our
Motorcycles on Main Street
event is about, but I wanted to
take the time and explain a little
bit about what to expect from
our group. I am sure many of
the readers have questions, and
I will do my best to answer as
many as possible with this arti-
cle. We are concerned with your
opinions and welcome all com--
ments.

"Motorcycles on Main_
Street" is the brain child of
Merle Redding, Marvin Walker
and myself. We were looking
for a solution to the area's lack
of outside help'for our numer-
ous local charities. Having
sponsored' numerous benefits
here at Charlotte's Webb Pub,
and being a part of the West
Coast Bike Rally Charities for
the last four years, my knowl-
edge and contacts would prbve
a valuable asset. Charlotte's
Webb Pub hosts motorcycle
enthusiasts from all over the
state, which is the reason that
we decided to put on these
functions.
We knew that if we created a
monthly venue that would ben-
efit our local charities, they
would come can support our
cause. With Merle and Marvin's
knowledge of the'community.
and ties here, we were sure to
make our venture a success.
With Sponsors of local business
owners such as CF Industries,
Vision Ace Hardware, Farm
Bureau, Hardeq, Ranch Supply,
Florida Fertilizer, Sevigny .&
Timmerman, and others we are
confident.that our event will be
a success for.the charity.
Today's motorcycle enthusi-
asts come form such adiversi-
fled background. Most are mid-
dle aged ,professional, people.
.who: have come to enjoy the
freedom of the road only
achieved on the back of a
motorcycle. A! vastimajority of
them spend their weektworking
jobs; like' youhand I, but when
the weekend arrives, out come
the bikes :and their adventure
begins'; They are always look-
ing fort new'.and interesting
places to ride to.:
Wauchula is so 'centrally
located that we; are. about' and
hour ride from anywhere and
the roads leading fo Wauchula
are great to iide on. Since my
doors opened in March of 2008,'
I have met literally thousands of
these riders, and have come to
know many as friends.
Whenever I have sponsored a
charity event, they have given


generously.
The first function of
"Motorcycles on Main Street"
will be Saturday, Feb. 13, from
Noon to 8 p.m. Our charity for
this event will be Main Street
Wauchula, Inc. They were cho-
sen due to the hard work that
they have done just to enable
our event to be successful. They
have.done so much for the
downtown area that we chose
them as our very first charity.
The event will be open to
everyone, young and old alike,
with a Kidz Zone located in the
Ernest Plaza Parking area.
There will be a Bounce House,
food, fun and games for. the
children, sponsored by local
merchants such as The
Magnolia.Tree, Cats on Main,
Gloria Jean's Neuro-Muscular
Therapy, and Grand Rental
Station. The Youth Coalition'
has volunteet'ed to help out also.
'.Bikers are family oriented
and may include their children
at events such as ours. The idea
to have a Kidz Zone there was
developed with safety in mind.
Parents are encouraged to bring
their children remembering that
children under 18 are to be
supervised at all times. We ask
that you discuss with them prior
to the event about being extra
careful when looking at the
motorcycles, and remember to
"Look But Do Not Touch." The
Kidz Zone will be open until 5
p.m. Anyone wishing to partici-
pate in this event can contact
me ASAP.
The Motorcycles on Main
Street, Food Court and Beer
Garden will be located behind
Heritage Park's Carousel. There
you will find awesome BBQ
dinners and sandwiches, burg-
ers and dogs, homemade onion
rings, chili and more sponsored
by the Enforcers MC. The Beer
Garden, sponsored by Bernie
Little Distributors, will have
your favorite beverages and
'will be' manned by Charlotte's
Webb Pub staff of volunteers.
The will be security posted at
.the entrance to the beer garden,
so remember to bring your state
issued ID Card. NO ID stating


you are at least 21 years old,
NO Entrance, No Beer. And
don't be upset if one of the bar-
tenders on duty asks for your ID
either.
The food court will be sepa-
rated from the beer garden, so
that everyone may enjoy great
food. We encourage everyone
to try out the local restaurants
such as Giovanni's Italian
Restaurant and the Java Caf6
downtown, or the Pioneer
Restaurartt, Paul's Kitchen and
the other restaurants in the area.
All of these fine establishments
have shown their support for
our event.
Born to Ride TV &, Magazine
will be on hand to do TV &
Magazine photo shoots, as well
as sponsoring the Motorcycles
on Main Street Bike Show. Ron
and Debbie Galletti have been
wonderful in all they have done
to help this event for us, and we
are truly grateful to them for
their patience. Born to Ride is
this area's premier motorcycle
TV and Magazine advertiser,
and have been instrumental in
making Wauchula and
Charlotte's Webb Pub. so popu-
lar with riders from all over the
state.
There will be numerous ven-
dors set up along the side
streets, with a variety of goods
and services. There will be a
small fee for setting up, which
100 percent of goes to the char-

Comedy has to be based
on truth. You take the truth
and you put a little curlicue
at the end.

Humor is the great thing,
the saving thing. The
minute it crops up, all our
irritation and resentments
slip away, and a sunny
spirit takes their place.
