Feds Want Tougher Water Rules Here


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
If the federal government has
its way, tougher water quality
standards will be imposed on
Florida by October.
A massive disagreement
between Floridians and the fed-
eral Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA) has spread to
every community in the state.
Richard Ghent, CF Industries
32-year employee in phosphate
operations, spoke last Thursday
in an open meeting held at the
County Commission Chambers.

A man who once faced life in
prison has entered into a plea
agreement that gives him no jail
time at all.
Javier J. Aguilar, 44, of 310
W. Grape St., Bowling Green,
originally had been charged
with two counts of sexual bat-
tery of a child under 12. A con-
viction on those charges would
have put him in prison for life.
Instead, Aguilar has agreed in
Hardee Circuit Court to plead to
a single count of aggravated
child abuse. The change means
there will be no need for a trial,
and his victim will not have to
testify in open court.

Hardee County once again
has a building official in charge
at the Building & Zoning
Office.
Jerome "Jerry" Smith began
work at the office at 401 W.
Main St., Wauchula, on
Monday of last week.
The 47-year-old New York
native has been getting
acquainted with the county and
the people in the last 10 days.
He said early this week that he
has been in "government
work," for several years.
Although he worked in North
Palm Beach when he first came
to Florida, he dispels any notion
that he is urban-oriented.
He said he sees his challenge
to "get everyone on the same
page."
He added, "I'll do my best. I
hope people will find me a per-
son of consistency, honest and
integrity." He will have an
Sopen-door policy. "If I'm here
or by appointment, I'll be avail-
able.


"I see myself as a steward,
getting people where they want
to go. If it's written in the book,
they can do it. It's my part to
explain the rights and wrongs of
doing something and explain
why. I'll make mistakes. I can
guarantee you I will be wrong
some time, but hopefully can
overcome that."

The annual Hardee County Fair is Feb. 20-27. A complete list
of events is printed on Page 8-C
The fair, located at Stenstrom and Altman Road next to Hardee
High School and the Hardee Agri-Civic Center has something for
everyone, including a midway, Miss Hardee County Pageant,
Kindergarten Princess Pageant, rabbit and dairy show, poultry and
swine show, steer show, livestock sale, Prince and Princess
Pageant, ranch rodeo, Little Miss Hardee County Pageant, and
Mexican band and rodeo.
Gibby Randall will operate the Cowbelles Kitchen and have a
good array of food.
A late addition to the county fair is a circus, which will have


two or three 30-minute shows daily. The circus includes motorcy-
cles, clowns and acrobats, a giant wheel, and Rocky the Boxing
Kangaroo.
The Midway will be open every day. Admission is $5 for
adults, $3 for students and free to children under 5. Parking is $3
and will go to HHS Project Graduation.

The Hardee County Republican Party oli Saturday, May 15, at
6 p.m. will host a BBQ dinner and tribute to area World War II vet-
erans. The guest speaker will be' Roy Hawthorne, a Navajo code
talker. The event will be at Florida's First Assembly of God Church
at 1397 S. Florida Ave. in Wauchula.
Tickets are $25. Proceeds will go to the Hardee High School
Junior ROTC program. The U. S. military used the Navajo code in
the World War II Pacific Theatre. Japan was unable to break the
secret code;.

Adam Meyerson, president of the Philanthropy Roundtable,
said America is the most charitable country on earth because we are
the most religious people of any leading modern economy, we
respect the freedom and ability of individuals and associations to
make a difference, and philanthropy is an important part of our
nation's business economy.

The Wauchula Elks Lodge building and lot failed to sell at auc-
tion Friday because the bids were not high enough. Two interested
parties, FINR and Roy Brown, never bid over $100,000. The min-
imum bid to be accepted for sale turned out to be $200,000.

A letter to the editor about the landfill issue was turned in
recently and signed by a Samuel Brockman Sr., an associate pastor
in Fort Meade. The letter failed the truth test-there is no such per-
son.

Auto sales in the U.S. in 2009 were 10.4 million units and are
expected to rise to 11.5 million in 2010, predicts Rebecca Lindland,
a HIS Global Insight analyst.
Cars and trucks sold in the U.S. from 1980 to 2008 averaged
14.8 million. CMS Worldwide expects sales will return to the
recent averages in 2012.
In 2009, compared to the year before, Ford sales dropped 15
percent, Honda 19 percent, Toyota 20 percent, GM 29 percent, and
Chrysler 35 percent, reported Autodata. Source: Jan/Feb. 2010
CFO Magazine.
GM and Chrysler took federal bailout money and are operat-
ing under a bankruptcy plan. GM has dropped some brands and
plans to issue new stock in the future. Ford had already acquired
private debt financing and did not need federal help last year.
The companies are producing vehicles with better fuel effi-
ciency and longer warranties. Toyota is in the midst of large recalls
due to some gas pedal or sudden acceleration problems. Toyota has
assembly plants in several states in the U.S.
SGasoline prices afe easing downward, reaching $2.58 a gallon
in Wauchula Monday. The auto industry's future is bright, but it is
taking awhile to reach former sales levels.

Business Facilities Magazine congratulates South Carolina for
the U.S. 2009 No. 1 economic development deal by being award-
ed Boeing's second 787 Dreamliner assembly plant. It will be in
the north Charleston area. The first assembly plant is in
Washington state.
About 55 airlines have already order 840 of the long-awaited
Dreamlinejets, which will carry up to 250 passengers, have a range
of 8,200 miles and get improved fuel efficiency. The 787 is also
quieter and has lower emissions, reports the magazine.

South Carolina won the plant because of over 100 existing
aerospace-related companies in the state,, an existing Boeing 787
fuselage manufacturing facility, hard-working labor force, accom-
modating business climate, and its traditional aversion to union
labor, says Business Facilities.
This project could bring in nearly $7 billion of economic activ-
ity to the Palmetto state and over 12,000 direct or indirect jobs.
While South Carolina in 2009 was going after a Boeing 787
plant, some folks in Hardee County were going after a regional
garbage dump!

The Wauchula Lions Club in the last eight months has
approved eyeglasses and exams for 19 people at $75 each and
donated $100 to the Hardee FFA, $500 to the Florida Lions Camp,
$700 to help Haiti, $250 for Hardee Help Center, and $1,500 for
college scholarships to Hardee students.
The club netted $4,225 on Lions Day in November by selling
680 BBQ meals. Lions is involved in sight preservation and has
access to guide dogs for blind persons. The club meets on Thursday
noon at the Faith Presbyterian Church Fellowship Hall.

Walton County Commissioners on the eve of trial recently
voted to settle a public records lawsuit and pay the resident request-
ing e-mail records $148,000 in attorney's fees, reported the

Dr. Bill Howard, a retired Wauchula optometrist, died Feb. 6
in Lakeland at age 89. He was a good man to know. He headed a
committee that built the Hardee football stadium.
Bill practiced over 50 years in Wauchula and was active in the
Kiwanis Club,,Methodist Church, Boy Scouts, Mason and a com-
munity college trustee. He liked growing orange trees and later did
missionary eye care work in Honduras.
He was buried in Arcadia Feb. 10 and a memorial service was

EPA says it is concerned with

which comes from stormwater
runoff, municipal wastewater
treatment of crops, fertilization

gasoline, degrade lakes and
rivers, reservoirs and estuaries,
canals and springs.
It says Florida's standards

"dead" zones where aquatic life
can no longer survive. High
amounts of nitrogen and phos-

probation. Any violation of its
Inany conditions could still put
him behind state prison bars.
At his sentencing hearing,
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle
imposed 15 years of probation.
During that time, Aguilar must
undergo sexual-offender coun-
seling, which includes an evalu-
ation and recommended treat-
ment. Aguilar must follow
through on the requirements of
that program.
Further, Ezelle ordered
Aguilar to stay away from his

directly or in an indirect form.
Ezelle also said Aguilar may
not have any contact with any
children under 18, unless anoth-
er adult is present to supervise
him.
Finally, the judge assessed
$520 in fines and court costs,
and ordered Aguilar to reim-
burse the State Attorney's
Office for its cost of prosecu-
tion, amounting to $100.
According to Capt. Brett
Dowden of the Bowling Green
Police Department, which made
the arrest last September,

EPA says it used 800,000

to set its criteria. It wants to set
Florida's lakes into groups
according to total nitrogen, total
phosphorus and chlorophyll A
criteria. It plans four different

Dowden noted the pastor had'

Mountain Moment
By Karla Patarini


MY HERO
As I looked up the cabin road, I had to chuckle as I thought of
all of the names given to each home that had been built since the
purchase of the mountain property over 20 years ago.
"The Cabin" was built first, followed by "The Mahogany
Room Cabin,".which was a small barn turned into a cabin with liv-
ing quarters with mahogany trim. A few years later, Dad built "The
Big House." Then, once again, he transformed a barn into what
would lovingly be referred to as "The Little House."
As children married and produced families of their own, some
followed their dream of living "on the mountain," and thus "The
Yellow House," "Laurelmont Lodge" and "Heatherstone" were
built.
Amid the admiration of the specific uniqueness of each home,
a feeling of sadness enveloped my thoughts. Would Karolene have
built a home here on the mountain and, if so, what piece of prop-
erty would she have chosen on which to construct her mountain
establishment?
I shook my head in disbelief at the realization that she had


been .gone for almost 35 years, for the memories of fussing over
who got to drink the most hot chocolate or who got to eat the last
fudgsicle were still fresh, almost as if they occurred only yesterday.
Yet, despite the sadness, a certain peace settled over the loss
that had left an open void in my soul and brought comfort to my
aching heart. I recalled her words spoken just a short time before
her earthly departure:
"I used to feel sorry for myself, wondering why I had
leukemia. But when I went to Shands and siw-other children who
were in so much pain, some of whom didn't even have mothers or
fathers, I didn't feel sorry for myself anymore."
A smile formed on my lips as I gazed at the huge gray stones
that speckled the mountainside, for they seemed to echo my
thoughts.
Karolene was as strong as a rock, but none of us truly knew the
extent of her strength and her deep-rooted faith until we heard the
words that, to this day, bring me to my knees in humility:
"I, know God can heal me. But, if He can look into my future
Gardening requires lots of
water-most of it in the
form of perspiration.

dening is a cast-iron back, ;

NWES Holds Science Fair


Over 140 individual and
class projects were displayed at
this year's Science Fair at North
Wauchula Elementary School.
Participating in the various
projects were students of every
age, from kindergarten through
fifth grade.
The school's business part-
ner, Mosaic's Four Corners
Mine, provided volunteers to
judge the competition. Mosaic
has done so for four consecu-
tive years.
Judges were Glen Oswald,
Lawrence Goss, Greg Cole,


Mike Elliott, Rick Grove and
Reginald Floyd. Coordinated
by Mary Ann Harrell, also of
.Mosaic, the judges inspected
each display and provided
expert evaluations of the infor-
mation presented.
The judges recognized out-
standing efforts and then deter-
mined the yellow, red and blue
ribbon awards for grades 3-5.
Best in Show award winners
were Zachary Durastanti and
Noah Valetutti, whose projects
were displayed at the district
science fair.,


and see that there will come a time that I will choose not to serve
Him, I want to die now while I'm a great Christian."
Over the past three decades ago, I have asked myself many
times if, given the chance, I could ever have enough faith to choose
the time of my eternal homecoming. Somehow, I doubt I could.
Many of life's greatest heroes often live their lives in quiet
humility and rarely, if ever, receive the acclamation they deserve.
This is true of my hero, who at the age of 12, chose eternity with
Him over the temporary earthly journey she could have spent with
her loved ones.
Karolene's tombstone reads as follows:
Karolene B. Pansler
February 12, 1963 February 1'6, 1975
"A Great Christian"
As the breeze gently whistled through the oaks and dogwoods,
I couldn't help but ask myself, "What will my loved ones choose:
to put on my tombstone?"

Spring has to be around the corner!
We have been seeing some of the birds that we look for each
late winter. The painted buntings, indigo buntings and goldfinches
will get their bright coloring before they move on. We are very
lucky that Paynes Creek Historic State Park is on the bird migra-
tion route, so we are able to add to our bird sightings.
Another sign that spring is getting close is the yellow flowered
Carolina Jasmine vine seen among a lot of the trees starting to
bloom.
Appreciation goes out to those who participated in the first
annual Caroling in the Park in December. It was a fun evening,
with plenty of cocoa and coffee to take off the chill. Sweet treats
provided by the Paynes Creek Park Alliance volunteers were avail-
able for sale. The musicians were very entertaining and the sing-
alongs really put us in the mood for Christmas. We are looking for-
ward to the next one!
A new kiosk has been added to the park. Some of the winter
volunteers made a 3-D map of the park showing all the trails, build-
ings and points of interest. They did a great job; be sure to get out
to the park and admire it.
Speaking of the volunteers, one at Paynes Creek Historic State
Park has been named Volunteer of the Year. Bob Tydd was pre-
sented with a certificate for his many hours given to volunteer
work. Generally known as A-Bob around the park, he and his wife,
Barb, have been coming here for several years.
His award comes from Volunteer Florida: The Governor's
Commission on Volunteerism and Community Service.
Besides a certificate, Tydd. received a presidential pin and a
letter on White House stationery signed by President Barack
Obama.
Bob Tydd is a worthy recipient of this award as he is the cata-
lyst of our volunteer group. By the end of the month he will have
reached 5,000 hours.
The project that he is involved in right now is the first thing
you notice as you drive into the park, the brand new to us, reno-
vated automatic/electric gate. Obtained from Hillsborough River
State Park, Tydd cleaned, polished and re-worked every part, so we
know it will perform perfectly.
Come see what all is new at our park!

Inspired by family friend Janie Revell, who ultimately lost
her life to brain cancer, 9-year-old Gracie Albritton
recently decided to have her long locks cut and donated
to Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which makes wigs for
women suffering from hair loss due to cancer treat-
ments. The fourth grader is shown above at Lisa's on
Main Street in Wauchula as her hair is sectioned off for
the big cut. To make the wigs, Pantene requires at least
eight inches in length. Below, Gracie shows her new
hairdo along with a ponytail that will be sent off to
Pantene. Gracie is the daughter of Dusty and Tara
Albritton.

Toby Ellison, 26, of Zolfo
Springs is an evangelist who
began preaching the word of
God at the age of 11 with a five-
minute sermon at his father's
church in Avon Park. He is also
an actor, a prophet, and a singer
who also plays drums and key-
board.
His agency Benz Model and
Talent booked him for a role on
Forensic Files TV show in
2009. He was blessed to have
the wonderful support of his
family, friends and fiance who
is attending fashion school in
Los Angeles, Calif.
His main mission now is to
help people become victorious
over storms or problems in their
lives. In November 2009 his
book "Storm Champions" was
published. It is a book on "how
to overcome the storms in your
life by refocusing on God."
Ellison is working on his sec-
ond book, a novel that he would
like to see published and made.
into a movie. The proposed title
is "The Prophet vs. the Demons
from Hell". Ellison attended
Hardee High School.
He is a member of his
father's non-denominational
church in Zolfo Springs-
Church of Joy on Suwannee
Street. His father is Rev. Ernest
L. Hearns. He dedicated his
book to his mother Carlene
Ellison Louisjeune. Ellison said
a lot of people grow up without
mothers or fathers but never
allow that to stop you in life.
He says some people need to
break cycles, bondages, and
generational issues of their
lives. "Let God raise you up
above those storms. You can
never reach your full potential
if you let storms crush you
down.

people to get close to God.

spoken at many churches in the
U.S., Jamaica, the Bahamas,
and Canada. "I notice different
people but the same problems,"
Ellison says. "Don't give up if
your dream does not work out,
don't live in defeat, don't live in
failure, and don't let a storm
dictate your life."
His advice to young people is
to (1) Seek first the kingdom of
God and His Righteousness,
and all these things will be
added unto you. (2) write down
what you would like to do (3)
do something practical and start
taking baby steps towards your


goals (4) stay motivated and
overcome mistakes, and (5)
deal with unresolved issues.
God can cure any bondage, grip
or addiction because His power
is unlimited.
Ellison said that it is impor-
tant "to forgive yourself for
healing to take place."
His personal goals include
becoming more financially
secure and having a wife and
family. He writes that every-
body has "storms or problems
that pass through our lives."
People need to be strong and
not lose their composure or
panic. Fears and doubts can

and nothing of great value in
life comes easily, writes
Ellison. "You cannot live a life
reflecting on the past. We have
tendency to hold on to our emo-
tional or psychological baggage
that stalls us and keeps us up
from going forward in God.
Shake it off and move on. You
have to know when enough is
enough. We are not called to
walk with our heads hanging
down as if we are left alone
without a Savior.
"The devil is always trying to
confuse you with lies. Satan
will always try to make you
focus on everything but the
right thing because he wants to
keep you on the same level that
you have been on for years.
Storm champions 'rely on God
and His spiritual weapons. Give
God praise for bringing through
your storms in the past. God is
still in control. Keep your eyes
on Jesus. "God has not given us
a spirit of fear; but of power,
love and a sound mind-2
Timothy 1:7. God wants what is
best for you.
"With God on your side He
will take your setbacks and set
you up to be blessed. A real
storm champion believes some-
thing good will come out of the
problems you're facing. You
need to focus on a real relation-
ship with God, more than
attending church, and more
than a religion. Seeking God is
going to require work. Nothing
in this life should be the ruling
obsession in your life, but God.
"God must be first and you
can't let anything around you
have more influence over your
life than God."
Ellison will have a book sign-
ing Saturday, Feb. 27, from
noon to 3 p.m. at Family

Lakeland.

no other God. I am the One
who creates the light and
makes the darkness. I am
the One who sends good
times and bad times. I, the
Lord, am the One who does
these things.
Luke 18:24, 26-27 (Phillips)

SUNDAY
Jesus said, "How difficult it is
for those who have great
possessions to enter the
Kingdom of God. ... Those
who heard Jesus say this
exclaimed, "Then who can
possibly be saved (eternal-
ly)?" Jesus replied, "What
men find impossible is per-
fectly possible with God."
Revelation 17:14 (NIV)

MONDAY
This is what the Lord All-
Powerful says, "These are
things you should do: tell
each other the truth. In the
courts, judge with truth and
complete fairness. Do not
make plans to hurt your
neighbors, and don't make
false promises. I hate these
things," says the Lord.
Zechariah 8:16-17 (NCV)

TUESDAY
Now that you've cleaned up
your lives by following the
truth, love one another as if
your lives depended on it.
Your new life is not like your
old life. Your old birth came
from mortal man. Your new
comes from God's Living
Word. Just think, a life (eter-
nal) conceived by. God
Himself.
I Peter 1:22b-23 (The Message)

WEDNESDAY
There is a river whose
streams make glad the city
of God, the holy place where
the Most High dwells. God is
within her, she will not fall.
God will help her.

WATER RULES OF GREAT CONCERN
Little is being carried in the media regarding changes from the
federal Environmental Protection Agency to Florida's nutrient cri-
teria for lakes, streams, springs and canals.
In my opinion, because the subject is so complex, reporters are
overwhelmed. Everyone is, even the trained professionals.
The fact that the EPA is acting without consideration to the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection input is concern-
ihg.
DEP has spent years collecting data. So much data to support.:
nutrient criteria in fact, Florida is considered the nation's leader in
water quality monitoring.
Now, as its reward, Florida is being singled out.
Additionally, the EPA has not published much of the support-'
ing data and information needed for stakeholders to properly ana-
lyze the criteria fully. The criterion does not take into account the
unique characteristics of each of the state's rivers, streams and
estuaries.
According to the EPA's Web site, they are:
"... proposing numeric nutrient criteria for four water body
types in Florida: lakes, streams, springs and clear streams, and
canals. Lakes will be classified into three groups (colored, clear &
alkaline, clear & acidic) and will assign total nitrogen (TN), total
phosphorus (TP) and chlorophyll a criteria to each lake group.
The criteria are based on the biological response (chlorophyll a
production) to TN and TP levels.
"The agency is also proposing an accompanying approach
Florida can use to adjust TN and TP criteria for a particular lake
within a certain range where sufficient data on TN and TP levels-
are available to demonstrate that the chlorophyll a criteria for a spe-,
cific lake will still be met.
"EPA is proposing four different- watershed-based regions;.
within Florida of streams with different TN and TP criteria for each'
region. EPA evaluated a combination of biological information and;
data on the distribution of nutrients in a substantial number of'
healthy streams measured by Florida's stream condition index.
"In developing these proposed numeric nutrient criteria for
rivers and streams, EPA also evaluated their effectiveness for assur-
ing the protection of downstream lake and estuary designated uses.
pursuant to the provisions of 40 CFR 130.10( b), which requires.
Water Quality Standards (WQS) must provide for the attainment
and maintenance of the WQS of downstream waters.
"EPA used best available science and data related to down-'
stream waters and found the instream nutrient criteria EPA is pro-;
posing may not be stringent enough to ensure protection of aquat-:
ic life in certain downstream lakes and estuaries. Accordingly, EPA:
is also proposing an equation to adjust instream TP criteria to pro-,
tect downstream lakes and a different methodology to adjust TN-
criteria for streams to ensure protection of downstream estuaries.
"EPA is proposing a nitrate-nitrite criterion for springs and,
clear streams based on experimental laboratory data and field eval-.
uations that document the response of nuisance algae to nitrate-;
nitrite concentrations. For canals in south Florida, EPA is propos-'
ing chlorophyll a, TN and TP criteria. To best protect these highly
managed water bodies, EPA based these criteria on canals meeting
their designated uses with respect to nutrients.
"In addition to proposing numeric nutrient criteria, EPA is also
proposing a new WQS regulatory tool for Florida, referred to as
'restoration standards.' This will enable Florida to set enforceable
incremental water quality targets (designated uses and criteria) for
nutrients, while at the same time retaining protective criteria for all
other parameters, to meet the full aquatic life use.
"Finally, EPA is also'.roposing an approach for deriving fed-!
eral site-specific alternative criteria (SSAC) based upon state sub-
missions of scientifically defensible recarculations that meet the:
requirements of CWA section 303(c). Total Maximum Daily Load,
(TMDL) targets submitted to EPA by Florida for consideration as,
new or revised WQS could be reviewed under this SSAC process.";
Quote, unquote.
Almost 75 percent of Florida's 2.1 million acres of irrigated:
farm land currently embraces voluntary agricultural Bestl
Management Practices.
Agricultural BMPs are practical, cost-effective measures that:
agricultural producers implement to reduce the amount of pesti-;
cides, fertilizers, animal waste and other pollutants entering our:
water resources. Best Management Practices are designed to ben-;
efit water quality while maintaining or even enhancing agricultur-i
al production.
Examples of how BMPs are making positive changes to water-'
sheds can be found in many parts of Florida, including locally.
\ Fortunately, agriculture isn't the only business in Florida to be:
concerned. All facets of water users have come out in opposition'
to this proposal. The prominent list of opposition includes all;
Florida Water Management districts, the Florida Chamber,,
Associated Industries of Florida, the Florida Water Environment:
Association Utility Council, Florida TaxWatch and many county;
and city governments.
This heavy-handed approach will ultimately end up in their
court systems where millions more will be spent, at the cost of'
Florida business. All Floridians should contact their elected repre"'
sentatives in Tallahassee and Washington to let them know this fed-'
eral action is unacceptable.
Written comments must be received on or before March 29.'
They must identify Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OW-2009-0596, by,

BOXING RING TO BEAUTY FLING Become a queen
for the price of a princess. An addition to the hair salons on Main
Street in downtown Wauchula is Teasin' and Cuttin' Up Salon &
Day Spa, which opened last month.
Owner Sue Power has been in the hair-styling business for 17
years and has worked all over the state of Florida, commuting from
her home in Winter Haven. Holding a corporate position, she was
in charge of over 200 salons in the state, from Jacksonville to
Miami.
With the reduction of her position, the small-town environ-
ment of Wauchula appealed to her, bringing her experience to the
county while it offered her a sense of relaxation as well.
"I did enjoy working in the hustle and bustle of the bigger
cities but bringing the business here has allowed me to take an
extra breath as I work," Power said.
With 15 acres of land and friends in the county, Power and her
husband and part owner, Jaque, decided to open their business here
as well. Renovating the boxing room located behind the old driver's
license office offers Teasin' and Cuttin' Up a spacious along with
fun, friendly and creative environment.
"Sue and Jaque will grow to be a great part of the county. We
welcome them to the community, as they will truly become an
asset," said co-worker Stephanie Valdez.
Services offered range from the traditional cut and color to full

Thankful for Support


Dear Editor,
Hello, my name is Zolly
Ziglar. My wife Linda and I
would like to take a minute and
let all the readers of this paper
know what a generous commu-
nity we are living in.
I am sure most of the people
of Hardee County have heard
about our twin girls Ashlee and
Zolli who were born May 1,
2009 with DiGeorge syndrome
and have had a rough start in
life.
SEvery day we get new e-
mails about the wonderful peo-
ple of this community praying
for us, and that is what we need
right now cause only God can
work miracles. Even if he does
it through a doctor it is still his
work..
Anyway we brought both
babies home for the first time
on Feb. 1 of this year when they
turned nine months old, and that
week First Christian Church,
came out and built us a very
nice handicap ramp which Ace
hardware donated all the build-
ing materials for.
And during this recession
when things are tight for every-
one I am just so proud to live in
such a loving and caring com-
munity. I also hope everyone
who is reading this right now
.realizes the love that is around
them right now and that through


What other people may

Cherry, Shiver Fight Friday Night


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of local boxing profes-
sionals will be in the ring in
Tampa on Friday night.
Edner "Cherry Bomb"
Cherry and Jenna "Cowgirl"
Shiver will be in bouts during
the Friday night "Triple Header
in Tampa" 'at the A La Carte
Event Pavilion.
Cherry will be in an eight-
round headline bout against
Hevinson Herrera in a junior
lightweight fight, while female
junior featherweight Jenna
Shiver takes on an opponent in
the co-main event.
Tickets, starting at $20, can
be purchased through Ticket-
master at www.ticketmaster.-
com. The ALa Carte Pavilion is
at 4050 Dana Shores Drive,
Tampa. Doors will open at 7
p.m., with the first bell at 8
p.m., says the company press


release.
The TKO Boxing Promotions
release gives an indepth report
on the Cherry bout, noting "for-
mer world title challenger is a
man'on a mission and continues
on his path toward another title
opportunity."
Cherry's bout is against
Columbian "banger" Hevinson
Herrera, who has a record of
14-4-1 with nine KOs. Most of
his 19 bouts, since Feb., 2,
2005, have been in his native
Barranquilla, Columbia, al-
though a few have been in
France, South Africa and
Panama. He has steadily moved
from super bantamweight to
featherweight to junior light-
weight. This will be his first
fight in the United States.
The 27-year-old Cherry is
confident. "Now that I'm fight-
ing at junior lightweight, I'm
feel much stronger and very


confident. I certainly feel this is
my year to become world
champion. I'd like to fight a
top-five contender after this
fight, and then one of the belt
holders at 130.
It is Cherry's first fight in
Tampa since a sixth-round
knockout of up-and-coming
boxer Wes Ferguson in June
2007. In September 2008, he
lost a very hard-fought 12-
round decision to welterweight
world champion Timothy
Bradley.
After a break while changing
managers and trainers, Cherry
began his come-back bid on
Dec. 17 with a third-round stop-
page of Jovann Jones in the
Commerce Casino in Los
Angeles. He used an array of
thunderous body shots to drop
Jones three times on his way to
the win, improving his record to
25-6-2 with 13 KOs.


Wauchula Welcomes Career Center


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The old driver's license
building in downtown Wau-
chula hasn't stayed vacant for
long.
USF Polytechnic University
will open a two-part center
there within the next two
months. It began design and
reconstruction Feb. 1 so it can
offer two services to the com-
munity-a place for teens and
tweens, and entrepreneur room.
The lese of the building at
116 W. Main St., Wauchula,
gives the university to bring a
center similar to one off the cir-
cle in Sebring which is success-'
ful, said Dr. Alice Murray, who
came to the Feb. 8 Wauchula
City Commission meeting to
explain the plans.
One Poly Place, half of the
building, will be a one-stop
shop for high school and junior
high students to explore career
opportunities. The adjacent
Entrepreneur Facility will offer
training, guidance and mentor-
ing for anyone wanting to start
a business.
Murray said the school hopes
its newest place will be up and
running shortly after Spring
Break and it will be open during
the summer months as well.
The One-Stop for students.
will aim to "help students be all
they can be, develop beyond
high school into whatever train-
ing, education or career they


want. It just hopes to expose
them to a variety of possibili-
ties.
"It will be a fun place to hang
out. There will be study help,
with computers available,
chances to just visit, sit and
talk, whatever," said Murray.
In the entrepreneur side of the
building, there will be help for
existing or new business own-
ers, helping them identify the
product or service they want to
market, and learn a lot of the
how-tos of it. There will be
workshops and interaction and
,community events will be host-
ed there.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-passed a pair of resolu-
tions, one to adapt to Social
Security requirements in the
pension plan and the other for
an up to $500,000 bridge loan
to meet expenses at the electric
substation until federal stimulus
monies are received.
-approved an amendment to
the work order for restoration of
the historic Wauchula Depot
allowing the ceiling to be
stained with wainscot, trim and
molding painted in a similar
color.
-approved closure of down-
town streets for the March 26
teen community day for youth
to encourage abstinence-based
activities during the following
week, which is Spring Break. It
will be from 5 to 9 p.m. and,


center around Heritage Park.
-reappointed Gerald Wald-
ron and Patricia Clark to three-
year terms on the Code En-
forcement Board.
-heard an update on the
Community Redevelopment
Agency (CRA) and Main Street
Inc. programs from Jessica
Newman, who heads them.
The boundaries of the down-
town Main Street area are
extended. They will be from
Fourth Street to Florida Avenue
one block on each side of Main
Street, and including both the
north and south sides of
Orange and Palmetto Streets.
SA Jan. 28 workshop expand-
ed public planning in what
community members wanted in
the quality of life and services
in Wauchula. Basically, they
want the downtown area to be
more attractive, pedestrian-
friendly, interconnected, busi-
ness-friendly and better land-
scaped but maintain the old
Florida heritage and small town
feel.

In July 1950, a patent was
issued for an automatic
spaghetti-spinning fork.


Cherry carries a 25-6-2 record into Friday's fight.

Local veterans of World War
II will be honored on May 15
by the Hardee County

the free and the home of the
brave."
Names and phone numbers

The program will feature
recognition of the veterans, spe-
cial music, a display of World

ceeds from the event will be

at Hardee Senior High School.
The event will be held in the

CONTENTED FISHERMAN
A rich industrialist was disturbed to find a fisherman sitting
lazily beside his boat.
"Why aren't you out there fishing?" he asked.
"Because I've caught enough fish today," said the fisherman.
"Why don't you catch more fish than you need?"
"What would I do with them?"
"You could earn money," came the impatient reply, "and buy a
bigger boat so you could go further out and catch more fish. You
could purchase nylon nets, catch even more fish and make more
money. Soon you'd have a fleet of boats and be rich like me.
The fisherman asked, "Then what would I do?"
"You could sit down and enjoy life," said the rich man.
"What do you think I'm doing now?" the fisherman replied.

Cowboy-Up Ministry Returns Home


Skipper Calder and the
Cowboy-Up Ministry Team
have been in Desoto County at
the Turner Agri-Civic Center
for the last three weeks.
The first Sunday in the
Turner Center, Calder used the
"White Horse" which appears
in Hardee County's annual pro-
duction of "The Story of Jesus"
passion play each Easter. With a
spectacular display of obedi-
ence and trust, Calder ended the
sermon by standing on the
horse and cracking a bull whip,
with no bridle on the horse, to
demonstrate how people need
to trust Jesus as their Savior.
The next weekend, Cowboy-
Up Ministry conducted a horse-
and-rider clinic on Saturday,
teaching people how to use
their feet to control their horse.
That Sunday, Calder demon-
strated how to apply feet to the
horse in the correct way, while
the sermon was about putting
"Feet to Your Faith."
For Valentine's Day Sunday,
all were excited at the Danny
Ray Harris Concert. Harris won
2008 New Artist of the Year
from the International Music
Center of America. Calder pre-
sented a short sermon about
love. The concert ended with
Calder marrying Joseph Swinny
and Ann Marie Bonsall onstage.
Calder stated that while the
ministry team enjoyed going to




7 I
86-73474


the indoor Turner Center in
Arcadia and reaching more peo-
ple, Hardee County is home.
Cowboy-Up's home location is
Cracker Trail Arena, a private
arena owned by Mike and Betsy
Damboise in rural Zolfo
Springs. Calder has lived in
Hardee County all of his life
and says he has no plans on
leaving.
Calder noted the Cowboy-
Up Ministry belongs to God,
and whatever and wherever
doors open, the team will try to
go through.
Calder, with the help of dif-
ferent team members, has done
training demonstrations
throughout Florida during the
week and on Saturdays.
Sunday are mostly reserved for
"Cowboy Church" at the
Cracker Trail Arena. And in
2009, God opened the doors for
this unique horse ministry to go
indoors and still use horses
while reaching more people at
the Turner Center.
At this time,, it appears
Cowboy-Up Ministry will be
going back to the Turner Center
two times a year, one in the
winter and again in August.
Calder also is in contact with
people from Fort Pierce,
Daytona Beach and Jasper, all
who are seeking this unique
horse ministry in their city for a
horse clinic or horse demonstra-
tion.
The horses and demonstra-
tions may change, but a better
understanding of God and hors-
es is always there, Calder said
of his ministry.
Cowboy-Up Ministry meets
from 9:45 to 11:30 a.m. each

Elder E.J. Hearns is an author and evangelist that has traveled around
the world preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. A native of Zolfo
Springs, Heams left here in 1972 when his mother died, and finished
high school in Pontiac, Michigan, while living with his sister Louise and
her husband Mack Taplin. After graduation, he attended California State
University at Long Beach, where he began experimenting with drugs
and became addicted to crack cocaine. In October of 1996 the Lord
supernaturally delivered him from drugs and alcohol and called him into
the ministry. His message brings hope and healing to those that are hurt-
ing and tormented by the devil. Elder Heams published his first book
"No Lack" in 2007. He has written and produced several plays. He has
an anointing on his life to set the captives free. You will not want to miss
this gospel explosion as we go to the third dimension of faith.

GREEN AcKr S
The Green Acres Home-
School 4-H Club held its
monthly meeting on Thursday,
Feb. 11, at the Hardee County
Extension Office at 1 p.m.
During the meeting, Leslie
Cantu from Cantu Apiary gave
a talk about bee-keeping. She
told us how they transport their
bees from one state to another
to pollinate, crops, about how
long honey bees live, what kind
of weather is good for them,
and what kinds qf jobs different
honey bees have.
She also told us that our
county is one of the most bee-
friendly counties in Florida
because of all of the agriculture
that people here are involved
with. She also told us about
how many honey bee colonies
they have (bee hives). Since the
bee colonies raise and drop dra-
matically because of all the pes-
ticide, cold weather and such
which kills the bees, right now
they have about 3,000 colonies
with about 50,000 honey bees
in each colony (that's a lot of
bees!). The talk was very edu-
cational.
On Thursday, Feb. 4, the club
went ice-skating in Ellenton.
Everyone had a good time
despite falling a lot and getting
bruises.
This is a pretty hectic time
with filling record books, get-
ting animals ready for the fair
and finishing up last minute
projects and all of that.
Speaking of which, I just want-
ed to wish everyone participat-
ing in FFA and 4-H good luck
with all their livestock and
other projects they're entering
and I hope everyone has a blast.
Green Acres welcomes any
home-schoolers here in Hardee
County that might be interested
in joining. Just call club leaders
Duane and Joy Brummett at
773-3805.
Like I always say, our club is
all about having fun, and most
of all, serving our community.
Again, good luck to all 4-H
and FFA members who are in
the Hardee County Fair. Just do
the best of your ability and, last


but not least, have an awesome
time. God bless y'all this next
week!

County To Become Energy Efficient


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An energy conservation grant
could put all county buildings
on the same thermostat.
At the Feb. 4 Hardee County
Commission, the possibility of
a state $250,000 Energy
Efficiency and Conservation
Grant was explained by Janet
Gilliard, director of the Office
of Community Development
and General Services and
Danny Weeks, facilities direc-
tor.
As part of the American


Recovery and Reinvestment
Act of 2009, Florida has $18.6
million available, with empha-
sis on small counties, those with
less than 50,000 people in the
unincorporated areas of the
county. The grants are competi-
tive and Hardee has a good
opportunity, said Gilliard.
She and Weeks received
approval to complete the appli-
cation, with the goal to hire a
technical consultant, and com-
plete energy efficient lighting
and-thermostat replacements in
all county-owned buildings.


Using the $50,000 automated
controlled system in process at
the Health Department as sup-
plementary points, the county
would use the new money' for
three phases.
Installing energy efficient
lighting would cut about $4,700
in expenses at the Agri-Civic
Center and a significant amount
at Resthaven.
Thermostat replacement with
ones programmable from a cen-
tral remote sign in Weeks'
office would along him to set
upper and lower limits, cut


This FNL Includes The



Grillin' & Chillin' Event


The February installment of
the monthly Friday Night Live
is packed so full of fun that it
had to be extended an extra
day!
So, bring your appetite to
downtown Wauchula this
Friday and Saturday for the
mouthwatering sixth annual
Grillin' & Chillin' on Main bar-
becue cookoff combined with
the Friday Night Live event.
The festivities will begin
Friday at 5 and will run until 9'
p.m. Included are live entertain-
ment by the Gumbo Boogie
Band, classic cars, arts and
crafters, kids activities and, of
course, tasty barbecue! Also on
hand are the traditional Grillin'
& Chillin' on Main event
favorites of the Chili Cookoff
and the Dessert Cookoff.
Be sure to enjoy late-night
shopping and dining with our
downtown businesses as well.
Make sure to bring your lawn

Then, the fun continues on
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.


Enjoy live entertainment in-
cluding the Generations Blue-
grass Band, First Christian
Praise Band and appearance by
the Wauchula Idol winners and

Throughout the day attendees

downtown merchants. And no
one will go home hungry with
their choice of barbecue from
the cookoff teams or downtown
restaurants.
Kids will have a blast at the
Kidz Zone, including inflata-
bles, a petting zoo from Lydia's
House, appearances by ventril-
oquist Chere & Leroy, face
painting and other fun stuff.
"This year Grillin' & Chillin'
includes seven teams who are
all hoping to be named 'a
cookoff champion, but most
importantly they are hoping to
raise funds for local charities
through their vending sales,"
says Jessica Newman, director
of Main Street Wauchula Inc.

American Cancer Society,
Habitat for Humanity, First
Christian Student Ministries,
the Cracker Trail 4-H Saddle

becue while also supporting
their community."

Softball Skips Past Avon Park


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Sandwiched between a pair
of home runs, Hardee softball
scorched Avon Park last week.
The Lady Wildcats were
rained out in the season home
opener last Tuesday at
Sebring. That game has been
rescheduled for March 15. The
girls were also rained out in the
game at Mulberry on Friday.
Due to Monday's holiday,
reschedule of that game is
uncertain yet.
This week, the girls are on the
road early, playing at All Saint's
Academy on Tuesday and
Sarasota Booker today (Thurs-
day). Tomorrow's game is at
home at 6 p.m. against
Palmetto. Home games are at
the Recreation Complex field

If knowledge can create
problems, it is not through
ignorance that we can
solve them.

Telephone (863) 773-3255


just north of the high school.
Next week, it is a game at
6:30 Monday at Jenkins and a
home game at 6 Tuesday
against district rival Bradenton
Southeast.
Last Thursday, Hardee trav-
eled to Avon Park and avenged
last year's "butt-whipping" loss
with an 13-1 victory.
Senior Chelsey Steedley, who
has been playing travel ball in
the off-season, got Hardee
going in a big way with an-
homer over the left centerfield
fence. That got the other Lady
Wildcats wanting to hit one too.
With two batters out, senior
Heather St. John smacked a hit
to left field and junior Elvira
Servin followed with a hit down
the first base line to right field.
But a pop-up ended the effort.
Avon Park left one runner
stranded.
In inning two, Hardee added
another tally. Freshman Danika
Briones hit to left field, moved
around with help of teammates
and scored. Soph Sabrina
.Hernandez beat out a bunt sin-
gle but was left at third. Soph
Maria Anselmo laid down a
perfect sacrifice bunt to score
Briones. The next two batters
were out. Avon Park was retired
oneo-two-three.
A ground-out started inning
three. Then St. John and Servin
hit back-to-back singles. Amber
Hines walked. A Briones hit to
right field scored St. John.
Servin was out, but Hines
scored before the final out. It
was now 4-0. Avon Park left
one runner on the base paths.
On to the fourth frame, where
Hardee picked up another trio
of scores. Anselmo was hit by a
pitch and stole second, but was
out on a Steedley fielder's
choice. Freshman Kayla Knight
singled and senior Kristina
Garcia hit one up the middle to
score Steedley. The runners
kept moving and were ready
when Servin banged a shot to
left center. Knight raced home


and Garcia followed on her
heels with a "beautiful slide to
score at home," said Coach
Shari Knight.
SWith the score now 7-0, Avon
Park got a small rally going. the
leadoff batter was safe on an
error and a triple brought her
home before freshman hurler
Knight struck out two and got a
ground-out to end the threat
with the score 7-1.
Hardee had its only scoreless
inning in the fifth. Fielder's
choices and walks left the bases
stacked when the third out
occurred. Avon Park batters
went down in order.
Hardee made up for the fifth
inning with a bat-around in the
top of the sixth.
St. John started it with a sin-
gle to right field. When Servin
sent one to right field, St. John
slid safely into third under the
tag. ATara Bolin sacrifice fly to
deep right field brought St. John
home.
Freshman Penny McGuire
got a shot past.the pitcher to
score Servin. Hernandez was
safe on an error. Soph Courtney
Buckley hit into an RBI sacri-
fice to score McGuire. Back to
the top of the lineup for
Steedley, who drew a walk.
Knight stepped up and slammed
a shot over the left field fence,
clearing the bases and giving
Hardee a 13-1 advantage.
Garcia singled to left field but
was stranded when the third out
ended the streak.
Avon Park began its sixth
inning with a walk. The runner
was out on a fielder's choice.
The Hardee defense came
through with a double play to
end the game. The batter, hit to
pitcher Knight, who turned and
caught the runner going to sec-
ond. Shortstop Steedfley turned
and completed the double play
with her throw to first.
"It was solid defense and
good hitting and base running.
A good win," concluded Coach
Knight.

residents' Day is a time to remember the leaders of our
country and the admirable qualities each exhibited in his
Service to our nation.
George Washington, our first President, often considered
the father of our nation, was revered for his honesty, simply
stating, "I cannot tell a lie." Certainly, this legacy is a
fundamental basis for all effective relationships in our world.
Abraham Lincoln, ranked among the greatest Presidents, was
known as "Honest Abe". He successfully led this country
through its first and only internal war, preserving the Union and
ending slavery. He set a great example of character by
his actions.
The character and actions of these Presidents make our
country what it is today. Won't you take a few moments to
thank God for them and for all of our Presidents' contributions
to our nation as we celebrate Presidents' Day?

' SEEDS
FROM
THE
S SOWER



Years ago Bill wanted to
become a professional ball
player. He was offered a con-
tract to catch for the best team
in the world, but his father
wouldn't let him.
"I'll leave home," he said.
But the next day he damaged
his throwing arm, and there
was nothing to do but become
a lawyer.
Bill considered himself a
failure. But he worked had
and became the Chief Justice
of the United States, and later
our 26th President.
His name? Will Howard
Taft.
Disappointed by an acci-
dent? Trust God and you'll tri-
umph. The Bible says, "All
things work together for good
to them that love God."

Hines, Celso Zamora and Nyelli Flores; (in back) back-cover winner Brooklyn Graham,
Yisselle Mier, Miguel Cardoza and front-cover winner Riley Boyette.


Hoop I
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
This season's over; it's time
to look toward 2010-11.
The Hardee boys basketball
team did its best but could not
overcome a cold third quarter to
steal a win against rival
Sarasota Booker.
Hardee, seeded third, took on
second-seed Booker in the
semi-final round of the Class
3A-District 11 playoffs held at
Bradenton Southeast last
Wednesday.
"We wanted to get off to a
good start, and we did. Neither
team was scoring a lot. Our
good defense kept Booker from
scoring. Unfortunately, that
made for fouls, and senior
Antjuan Jones had two quick
fouls in the first quarter and had
to sit out the rest of the first
half. We were tied at the half
23-23," reported Head Coach
Vance Dickey.
"In the third quarter, we went
flat, made just one shot of a
dozen from the field. Twos and
threes were way off. We fell
behind by 10 points. In the


Boys Fin
fourth quarter, they had the
momentum and we were getting
good shots, but not enough to
catch up. It was just a horrible
shooting night in the second
half. We had to foul and they
got their free throws,' conclud-
ed Dickey.
The'scorebook tells the story.
Hardee led 10-7 at the end of
the defensive first quarter.
Booker made up the difference
to knot the game 23-all at the
half. Hardee scored justL two
points in the third frame and got
only a little better in the fourth,
losing 52-34.
Interestingly, Hardee had
only nine foul shots for the
entire game, while Booker went
nine-of-18. Fouls were dispro-
portional too. Hardee was
called for 18, Booker for 10.
Stone Holiday led Booker
with a dozen points with Ricky
Jones at 11.
Andrew Hooks topped
Hardee with 11 points. Jones
had 10 to end his Wildcat bas-
ketball career. Keshun Rivers
added seven, and Jajuan Hooks,
Carl "Junior" Brown and


lish Up
D'Vonte Hooks each two
points. Tre' Anderson and
Alonzo Casso added defensive-
ly.
Hardee will lose only one
starter, Jones, to graduation.
Dickey will have his mostly
underclass team back, along
with some possibles from the
junior high level.
The team will go to camp,
both varsity and JV, in June.
In mid-April, Dickey and.his
coaching staff will host. the
Heartland Hoops Triple SA
tournament, with 50 to 60 teams
from all over Florida. Dickey, a
junior high phys. ed. teacher
will enter a fifth-sixth team of
12 and under, and an eighth-
ninth grade team of 15 and
under.

Saturday night was a catered event which included keynote
speaker Jennifer Moody, who was a wide receiver for the
Pittsburgh Passion for six years. The team is an all-women's full
contact professional football team. She spoke about never giving
up on your dreams, and that you can be anything you set your mind
to.
Pop Warner Little Scholars was founded in 1929, and serves as
the only youth football, cheerleading and dance organization that
requires its more than 400,000 participants to maintain academic
standards in order to participate.
Pop Warner's commitment to academics is what separates it
from other youth sports around the world. The standards that have
been set give its participants a sense of responsibility and an appre-
ciation for academics and athletics that will help them develop in
all areas of life.
Each year, the most academically accomplished Pop Warner
Athletes compete for Academic All-American status. Those who
are eligible for consideration of this award are currently in the fifth
grade or above, and have a computed 96 percent Grade Point
Average or higher.
In conjunction'with that GPA, all community service,
| extracurricular activities, honors classes and awards are then
reviewed and scored against all other applicants meeting the
requirements. This process begins as the local association level and
continues through each of the eight Pop Warner regions all the way
to the national level.
Hardee is in the Southeast Region, which is made up of 12
conferences from Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi.
The top 15 football players and top 10 cheerleaders for each
grade level are announced as First Team All-American Scholars.
Scholars in the eighth grade and above are eligible for college
scholarships at the conference, regional and national banquets. If a
scholar reaches the national level, his/her applications are scored
against the entire Pop Warner nation.

Greetings from Fort Green!
We spent last week at
Kissimmee River State Park
near Lake Wales and it was
cold, rainy, and just a bad week
for fishing! One delightful
thing, though, on Saturday
morning when we were coming
home, the park grounds rang
with the laughter and excited
talk of children. Their parents
had evidently arrived Friday
night and many were camping
in tents. But, the children were
climbing trees and acting like
kids did back when I was
young!
Earl and Mary Bargeron
spent a few days there and they
didn't even put their boat in the
water. Mary was still coughing
and didn't want to take a chance
on renewing her cold. All I can
say is that wind was mighty
cold going across that open
expanse of water.
For a whole week of fishing,
we only caught four fish! I
caught the first one and
Sherman filleted it, which gives
you two bites. The other three
he scaled for Avis Sasser, as she
prefers them this way and hates
to waste the fish. I said this
would be enough for her and
Viola Carlton to enjoy!
The waves were white-cap-
ping one day when we rejected
going fishing, reminded you of
the beach! Jewel and Russ Tim-
mons and David and Kathy
Timmons were also there, and
we all camped near each other.
Russ was the one who built a
fire each night, and it sure was
nice!
While we were off having
fun, Margie Albritton was a
patient in the Sebring hospital,
Eddie Kennedy was in the
Lakeland hospital and Melissa
Davenport had knee surgery on
the 9th but is doing fine, as are
all the others. All are home, but
still need our prayers.
I had an interesting phone
call the other day. A couple who
live in Bradenton but subscribe
to The Herald-Advocate called
and said they read the Fort
Green news and want to relo-
cate to Hardee County. From

Ralh CHURCH
By Diane Burget
Pastor Bob Winne's message
on Feb. 7 was that it is impossi-
ble to read Scripture and not
realize that God put us on this
earth to work. Many believe the
statement "God Helps Those
Who Help Themselves" is
scriptural. It is not in the Bible.
It is true, however, that God
helps those who can't help
themselves.
,He sent Christ. We are born
of sin; we are under penalties of
sin; we can't work to save our-
selves. That's why Christ came.
He became sin for us that we
might become righteous in
Him.
The offering was collected by
Bob Wilday and Lowell
Gordon. Don Merillat gave the
prayer. We celebrated Holy
Communion. Don Merillat gave
the prayer for the bread and
Pastor Winne for the wine. The
elements were served by Lee
Roy Behymer, Bill Burget,
Steve Gray and Bob Beckley.

certificate. So, all grandparents,
and some great-grandparents
were present. Larry Walker was
there and I wish his mother
could have attended. They did
not stay for the Valentine din--
ner, as they said Heather had
prepared dinner.
Carol Brown sang a beautiful
song in the morning service.
Donald Samuels was-out sick
with the gout. That is a terrible
malady as Sherman gets it
sometimes and it will put you,
down. Ronnie Thomas is doing
better and has actually gained a
few pounds. He is still taking
radiation.
All you folks that read this
news, I read in Jim Kelly's col-
umn that the garbage dump is
not a done deal. The county is
still thinking about it, and wants
to put it in western Hardee
County. Well, that is the Fort
Green area and we sure don't
want it!
I say let each county handle
its own garbage. I truly believe
our commissioners could find
some good clean business to
locate here, rather than a dump!
Look at our neighbors to the
south. Arcadia has a rodeo it is
famous for, and I know we have
just as good cowboys as they
do.
Remember to pray for each
other and our country.

FULL PARK

I think we are all here right
now. I know I have not been
able to tell you all welcome

will be returning to their home
in the North? Artie McDonald
has sold her unit and will be

have all been in the park for a
lot of years.

BREAKFAST/COFFEE &
DOUGHNUTS
Pancakes and sausage were
served on Feb. 6. It was a very
successful breakfast, as I under-
stand there were so many peo-
ple that there were two tables
added. By the comments I have
heard, the sausage was wonder-
ful.
Everyone is really looking
forward to the biscuits and
gravy that will be coming up
this weekend. Plan to attend; it
really is a good way of finding
out what is going on in the park.
The drawing for the 50/50 is
only at a breakfast. The winners
on the 6th were Gene Louks
and Harland Albertson.
Coffee & Doughnuts is every
Wednesday morning at 8.


Breakfast is twice monthly.
Watch your monthly planner to
see what those two Saturdays
are.

ORANGE BLOSSOM OPRY
I am so excited! I have con-
tacted Cynthia Krahl at the
paper. I am going to send her
pictures of the Opry and she
may put them in the paper. I
have talked to my daughter and
she is going to take pictures for
me. We will have three cameras
going, so we should get some
good ones!
