More Gloom On Budget Horizon

10 Elected Officials Meet To Discuss Coming Cuts


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
All 10 elected county offi-
cials agree.
In discussions at last week's
meeting of the Hardee County
Commission, the five constitu-
tional officers, Property
Appraiser Kathy Crawford; Tax
Collector Zee Smith; Super-
visor of Elections Jeff Ussery;
Clerk of Courts B. Hugh
Bradley; and Sheriff Arnold
Lanier offered their comments
are the challenges facing them
in budget workshops this sum-
mer.
Commission Chairman Terry
Atchley had invited the quintet
to meet with the commission bn
budget concerns which may
arise from the upcoming state
legislative session.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
spoke for the five commission-
ers, Atchley, Minor Bryant,
Nick Timmerman, Bobby Ray
Smith and himself. "We are nol

value your input."
Atchley said two weeks ago
he was involved in a phone con-
ference with the Small County
SCoalition on a budget alert,
issues intended to encourage
folks to begin analyzing and
considering budget reductions.
"There are no new revenues
expected at the state level.
There will be projected short-
Sfalls, along with a reduction in
Corporate income tax. With the
Recessionary conditions, unem-
Sployment rate and ad valorem
tax declines, we have a lot of
planning ahead," he said.
t Property Appraiser
S Crawford said it was too
early to give even an estimate
on ad valorem revenue. "It's
been a difficult year with fore-
Sclosures. We are not able to
work on sales as we have in the.

Invited To


Variety Show
By LAUREN MOORE
For The Herald-Advocate
This weekend, the Hardee
County Players will be showing
its third annual "Snow Bird
Variety Show."
The show gives winter visi-
tors a chance to showcase their
talents for the enjoyment of
local residents and include a
wide variety of music, comedy
and what not
As usual, it will be held in
the auditorium at historic
Wauchula City Hall, 225 East
Main St. Wauchula.
The first performance will be
tomorrow (Friday) evening at
7:30 p.m. and the second show-
ing will be Sunday at 2:30 p.m.
Admission is $5; tickets can be
bought the day of the perform-
ances at the door. The doors
will open an hour before the
show begins.

past. We're still taking home-
stead, agricultural and tangible
tax exemptions until April. It
will probably be May before I'll
be even close to an estimate.
Last year the just valuation of
properties was down 18 percent
but the taxable value was only
down three percent."
This was primarily due to the
Save Our Homes amendment
which limited property tax
increases. The differential
between just valuation and tax-
able value is going down. When
those meet, then tax revenue
will decrease even more, she
summarized.
She also said the TRIM
(TRuth In Millage) forms sent
to property owners had previ-
ously been provided free. The
newer form is complex and her
office doesn't have the software
for it. "We'll have to outsource

it, and it could be expensive,"
she said.
Tax Collector
Smith came in for some acco-
lades for accepting the driver
license renewal program when
the state driver license office
closed here. "I can tell you that
about 80 percent of the driver
license expenses are collected,
so it mostly pays for itself," she
said.
She also agreed that software
for the new tax notices may
mean outsourcing that work and
she would be unsure of the
costs as yet.

Ballot Amendment


Raises Controversy


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It sounds so good!
Opposition is growing rapid-
ly to the proposed Amendment
4 to be on the November elec-
tion ballot.
"It's a great name, I wish I'd
thought of that," said John R.
Alexander, as he talked with
area officials and community
members at a Feb. 11 meeting
about the proposed Florida
State Constitution amendment
colloquially called "Hometown
Democracy."
The offered amendment has
passed Florida Supreme Court
review for its clarity of lan-
guage. In effect, it says (see
complete ballot question later in
article) that any change to a
county or city Comprehensive
Land Use Plan will require a
referendum, an election.
This does not mean that an
issue already allowed in the
Comprehensive Land Use Plan
and its accompanying Land


Development Regulations, such
as the recently regional landfill
which was rejected by a 3-2
vote of the Hardee County
Commission.
It could, however, mean extra
elections during the year, at a
cost of about $30,000 each.
Every time someone wants to
sell their land and change its
use to something not allowed in
that designated zone, it would
require a special election, or the
person (s) would have to wait a
year or two until the next regu-
lar election. 1
Alexander said Amendment 4
"sounds like it is putting people
in charge of the places where
they live, trusting the people to
make the right decision about
growth. The concept sounds
good-put the power in the
hands of the people."
But Florida, and Hardee
County, already have growth
management plans for orderly
growth. Amendment 4 will

7K Kelly's Column
By Jim


Last year Hardee Correctional Institution had 1,684 inmates,
reported warden John Tate. The facility open in 1991 on 245 acres.
The work camp has 288 inmates who work in Hardee, Manatee and
Hillsborough counties. There are five Florida Department of
Transportation work squads.
The prison has 373 employees with salaries and benefits total-
ing $16 million. The operating budget is $28 million. Some 53 per-
cent of the employees live in Hardee County.
The HCI prisoners have helped with the Hardee County Fair
and Pioneer Park Days. Inmates helping after the 2004 hurricanes
numbered 160.
Florida had 100,000 state prisoners in 2009 and is expected to
have 125,000 in five years. Tate would like more education and
vocational training in the prisons.
Over 200 volunteers help at HCI. In Florida the recidivism rate
(those returning to prison) is 32 percent, compared to 25 percent
nationally.
Since HCI opened in 1991 there have been "zero crimes
against Hardee County citizens from HCI inmates," said Tate.
HCI has a certified carpentry program a f*-in 2008 made 650
Christmas.toys, and HCI inmates have helped build six Habitat For
Humanity homes. ., '
The cost to keep a state prison inmate for one year is between
$22,000 and $23,000, said Tate.


In 2009 Rotary Club photo are County Judge Jeff McKibben,
HCI Assistant Warden Jerry Cummings, warden John Tate, Circuit
Judge Marcus Ezelle, and Juan DelaTorre.

Living in a recession involves buying for long-term quality
and replacing spending lots of money with quality of life events,
Orlando author Casey Wohl told the Hardee Rotary Club last year.
She also suggested goal setting, building trust level and network-

ing through social media.

Rick Badie, columnist for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, on
Feb. 13 wrote that the current generation of U.S. children may be
the first in history to have a shorter life expectancy than their par-
ents. It is due to lack of exercise and bad diet.
He wrote that the three states with the highest rate of child-
hood obesity are, in order, Mississippi, Arkansas and Georgia. No.
3 Georgia has a 37 percent obese rate for kids 10-17. One or two
kids a month get a procedure in Atlanta to fight obesity such as gas-
tric bypass or stomach lap bands.
America's First Lady Michelle Obama is leading a campaign
against childhood obesity, which she says is a public health crisis.
Perhaps a one-mile run could be planned for kids, with former
President Bill Clinton passing out a cheeseburger to all who finish.
Those who do not finish the course would receive a serving of
broccoli from former president George W. H. Bush.

Is the Kennedy influence in Washington, D.C. coming to an
end? U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Ted Kennedy, has
announced he will not seek re-election. He's a Democrat from
Rhode Island. This would be the first time in over 60 years there
has not been a Kennedy in the nation's capital, reported The
Associated Press.

Citrus grower Kenny Sanders reported last week that current
orange prices are $1.50 to $1.60 a pound solids for earlies (ham-
lins) and $1.75 for valencias. This compares with a range a year
ago of 70 to 90 cents a pound solids.
The higher prices are due largely to less supply. Demand for
OJ is increasing slightly. The current Florida orange crop is only
129 million boxes.

Hardee economic development director Bill Lambert on
Thursday, Feb. 18, spoke to the Wauchula Lions Club about the
local Economic Development Council that has agreed to award $2
million in phosphate severance taxes to improve internet speed
across the county. Motorola and Rapid Systems will provide
microwave wireless broadband. Residential customers who sign up
will pay about $20 a month.

The Hardee County Fair continues throughout the week end-
ing Saturday. Pioneer Park Days will be held March 3-7 in Zolfo
Springs.

In mid-2009 Wauchula Elks Lodge No. 1700 closed its doors
due to declining membership, participants and finances. The lodge
was established here in 1946 and was sponsored by the Arcadia
Elks Lodge. Russell Farmer was the first exalted ruler of the
Wauchula Lodge. The closed facility on Main Street recently failed
to sell at public auction because the bids did not reach $200,000.
Across the United States as of March 31, 2009, there-were
926,245 Elks members, a decrease of 29,642 from the year before,
according to the Elks Magazine.


BUDGET
Continued From 1A
with Senator J. D. Alexander in
an effort to put it off until at
least 2016. "That would be a
savings of about $90,000," he
said.
Another big problem is that
the vendor equipment provider
they have used has sold out to
ES&S, which now has a nation-
al monopoly on voting systems
and is facing a possible antitrust
lawsuit. That could amount to a
big dollar increase. That could
be the incentive for the state to
put off the touch screen change
from 2012 to 2016, he
explained.
Ussery said it costs about
$30,000 to hold a special refer-
endum, which could be needed
several times a year if
Amendment 4 on the 2010 bal-
lot is approved (see related
story on Hometown Democra-
cy.)

Clerk of Courts
Bradley said his office had a


18 percent cut in personnel and
services last year and has heard
from 10 to 15 percent cut this
year statewide. Most of his
monies come down through
General Appropriations and
there has been a movement to
put more control under the judi-
cial system. In fact, they .are
proposing an eight percent fee
for the county to process the
fines, fees and other revenues it
collects.
"If we add the 18 percent last
year, the 10 to 15 percent this
year and the eight percent
administrative fee, we will be
back to the staffing when Ben
Coker left this position (Clerk
of Courts) 35 years ago.
"We have been conservative,
arid while our year-to-date rev-
enue is 22 percent off what is
budget, we are in a good posi-
tion. If no one retires or resigns,
we would have the money in
those funds-av'ailable," he said.
"All five of us (constitutional
officers) have the obligation to
our citizens to serve them as
best as we can and operate as
efficiently as we can, as you
do," concluded Bradley.

Sheriff
Lanier said his office had cut
three percent last year as
requested. "If we have to cut
another three percent, we will
have to cut personnel, Identify
and prioritize what we can do.
The jail is in constant repair, but
inmate housing is our responsi-
bility. We aren't having as much
revenue from housing inmates
for immigration, DeSoto
County and such. The Florida
Sheriffs Association and
Association of Counties are
working with the legislature
and we would like to give yop
information before you go there
(March 24)."
The group agreed tentatively
to set a workshop in May when
Crawford might be able to proj-
ect revenue. Commissioner
Bryant agreed that it might be
necessary to cut hours and serv-
ices the county has if revenue is
severely reduced again.

A friend can tell you things
you don't want to tell your-
self.

ture 1, where density is only
one house for every five acres.
Others will be required
because of state mandates. The
state requires each city and
county to update its Comp-
rehensive Plan annually just to
change the Capital Imp-rove-
ment Element, adding a new
fifth year and listing what proj-
ects the county/city hopes to
accomplish in the next five
years and how they will be
funded. (The county held just
such a public hearing on that
issue at its last meeting on Feb.
18.)
It would also mean any
change in a mining plan, say
purchase of another five acres,
would require a change to the

Besides t mi mninig overlay
map, it could be any large scale
development, over 10 acres,
which changes the density, or
even a small-scale amendment,
under 10 acres, which could
have consequences.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
brought this up at the Feb. 18
meeting, considering two minor
subdivision requests. One is
taking a five-acre portion off at
74-acre parent parcel. "They
could continue to break off five
acres until it amounts to a major
subdivision, without the roads,
drainage and other require-
ments," he said.
"It is quite complicated, not
as simple as the amendment.
might look. It loses the overall
growth picture in individual
ballot questions on each
change. It takes out the
Planning & Zoning boards,
county and city commissions
and leaves it to each developer
who can convince the public of
the worth of his project.
People want smart growth,
not no growth. There has'to be
planning for schools, density
and housing, infrastructure such
as roads. The issue is quality of
life and planning, vs. extreme
special interests," concluded
Alexander.

Steedley Signs With Chipola


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Senior softballer Chelsey
Steedley made it official on
SFriday morning.
The 18-year-old signed a
contract with Chipola College
in Mariana. The Indians are cur-
rently unranked in the National
Junior College Athletic
Association ranks but may
move in after taking a double-
header last weekend from
Darton in Albany, Ga., now
ranked No. 8th in the 'nation.
Chipola won 10-0 and 16-5.
"I love the way they work
together as a team. They gave
me the best package," said
Steedley, who wants to go on to
get her AA degree at Chipola,
go on for a BA and become a
kindergarten teacher."
The Wauchulan, daughter of
Timothy and Bettye Steedley,
has been playing travel ball
since she was 10 years old. She


will play outfielder/infielder for
the Indians. She was playing
with the Tampa Mini-Bulls this
summer, but gave up playing
volleyball this year in order to
continue travel ball with the
Tampa Bay Mustangs, which
included her in several coaches'
showcase tournaments, includ-
ing two trips to Las Vegas, to
compete.
It was a small crowd for her
signing, including her parents,
grandparents Larry and
Charlotte Steedley, cousin
Anthony Steedley, a junior who
is playing football for Naples
and hopes to have a similar
signing himself next year.
Chelsey comes from an ath-
letic family. Older sister Amber,
a 2008 HHS graduate, is play-
ing her softball at South Florida
Community College. An out-
fielder, an hitter known for her
speed and stealing bases, she
was in Immokalee this week-


end, playing against Mt. Olive,
N.C., a Division II school.
Brother Timmy is an eighth
grader, hoping to excel in foot-
ball, which he has played for
the conference winning Junior
High Wildcats this year.
Lady Wildcat head coach
Sharri Knight was enthusiastic
in Chelsey's behalf. She and
Knight's daughter Kayla, a
freshman, were travel partners
in softball this summer and fall
and both are on the Lady
Wildcat softball, which began
its season earlier this month.
"We have worked really hard
on this. Last summer when
other kids were over at the
beach, she and Kayla were busy
playing softball. I'm really
proud of Chelsey. She's worked
hard for this," said the coach.
Athletic Director Val Pat-
arini, who has watched the teen
gain experience, was also
pleased for her. "She's worked


hard since the nine grade to go
to the next level. We're glad to
see her get her dream."
Principal Michelle Polk
chimed in, We are really
proud of Chelsey for her
accomplishments. We'll follow
her softball career with inter-
est."
Father Timothy Steedley
expressed appreciation for
many who have helped Chelsey
be able to play travel ball, espe-
cially Derren Bryan and the
Hardee Athletic Foundation,
Max Ullrich of Ullrich's Pitcher
Pump, and Coach Knight, her
husband Doug, and former
Coach Leigh Beumel.
"It's been a long road going
place to place, but it's given her
a lot of experience. It came to
an end and she had to come to
the decision. There'll be more
road trips as we follow her," he
concluded.


NUTRITIOUS FOOD
Food Check-Out Week Feb. 21-27-"Stretching your grocery
dollar with healthy nutritious food."
This is the week when normally the average American will
have earned enough income to pay for the entire year's food sup-
ply. This is according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
However, I wonder these days whom is the average American.
With the economy in the state it has been for the past year with so
many millions out of work, this certainly does not apply. So many
people are struggling on a daily basis to keep food on the table.. Let
us remember those who are less fortunate than we may be.
The American Farm Bureau and the Florida Farm Bureau sup-
port activities especially during this week to help supply food for
charitable causes, such as Ronald McDonald Houses and local food
banks. Remember there are people in need in our Community that
are helped by these resources. We can individually contribute to
these and support them in their mission to feed those in need.
BALLOT AMENDMENT 4
Florida voters will be asked to vote on Amendment 4 to the
Florida constitution. The proponents of this call it "Hometown
Democracy:" However, a more appropriate name would be
"Hometown Disaster." This falls in the same category as the
"Pregnant Pig" amendment that made Florida the laughing stock of
the country.
What Does This Mean For Floridians?
The Disruption of' local communities and the daily lives of
Floridians will be great.
The Disorder will further disenfranchise Florida's already- -
fatigued electorate.
The Cost to taxpayers will be astronomical.
The Result will be a system that is far worse, not better.
That's why respected Environmental leaders refuse to support
the amendment. They know it will not put a stop to all develop-
ment, but will encourage sprawl and reduce green space by making
well-planned, smarter growth impossible.
So, Who Are Floridians For Smarter Growth?
Sunshine State leaders founded Floridians for Smarter Growth
(FSG) to fight extreme.interest bound to destroy Florida's unique
quality of life. A nonprofit campaign committee, FSG is the
statewide organization opposing the so-called "Hometown
Democracy" proposal that would cost many Floridians their jobs,
homes and personal Freedoms.
Please become informed on this Amendment well before elec-
tion time and encourage everyone you know to do so. The wording
on the ballot, provided by the Florida Supreme Court, makes it
sound wonderful-like sliced bread.
If you find out what its implications are and how it will affect
Florida, you will vote against it. This is another amendment the
RADICALS in Florida want to put by the voters and tie up our
local and state governments in unnecessary red tape and extreme
cost with special elections to do the work we elected our officials
to do.
When election time comes, please VOTE NO.


Imagination is the beginning of creation. You imagine
what you desire, you will-what you imagine and at last
you create what you will.

FSU Coaching Legend Bobby Bowden Speaks At PRVCGA Annual Dinner


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Recently retired Hall of Fame
FSU head football coach Bobby
Bowden spoke Tuesday, Feb-
ruary 16, at the 2010 annual
membership meeting and BBQ
dinner of the Peace River
Valley Citrus Growers Asso-
ciation. Some 525 people
attended the Arcadia event at
the Turner Agri-Civic Center.
Bowden was introduced by
his friend and former FSU foot-
ball chaplain Rev. Ken Smith,
pastor of First Baptist Church
of Wauchula. He arranged

Im


Bowden's visit.
Bowden, 80, coached for 57
years, including head coach at
FSU for 33 years and winning
two national titles and 12
Atlantic Coast Conference
championships. He posed for
photographs and autographed
items before the dinner, pre-
pared and served by the
Lakewood Ranch High School
FFA.
Bowden, said he has lived in
Florida 37 years and that
DeSoto/Hardee are in the heart
of Florida and also represents
the heart of America with its


years as a phosphate miner,
len


agriculture. He said Brad Scott,
his former assistant coach, ex-
head coach of South Carolina,
and current assistant coach at
Clemson, is a "good representa-
tive of this area."
Bowden became FSU head
football coach following Sem-
inole seasons of 3-8, 1-10 and
0-11. "Football pays 95 percent-
of a university's athletic budget,
and the job is to get people to


buy tickets. When I came to
FSU we had 41,000 seats and
17,000 attendance."
He and his wife Ann have
been married 60 years and have
six'children and 21 grandchil-
dren.
In his first FSU season in
1976 Bowden played upper-
classmen, who were used to los-
ing the first two games, and
then went with younger players,

Association.


who did well in a close loss at
No. 1 Oklahoma.
"Your attitude is most impor-
tant. Attitude is more important
than the physical. You need
leadership," said Bowden, cit-
ing Florida's Tim Tebow.
Bowden loves military histo-
ry and studies its leaders. "The
great leaders have compassion,
integrity and courage of their
convictions.
We all have problems.
Successful leaders are problem
solvers. That is what a head
coach is. Do you lead with a
baton or a club? Both can be
effective, but I prefer a baton."
Bowden likes players and
peope who have "it," which
can b gained by having enthu-
siasm (full of God), living a dis-
ciplined life, learning to obey,
having a positive attitude and


perseverance. You will not quit.
People and nations who obey
God are blessed, and those who
do not obey are cursed.
"Where have our dads gone?
Many kids are raised by their
mom, grandmother or older sis-
ter. Maybe that's -why many
young guys wear earrings and
have long hair.
"Only a fool tries to solve
problems without God's help,"
referring to King Solomon in
the Biblical times who sought'
wisdom.
Bowden referred to Proverbs
about "keeping your heart
clean, being pure, full of love,
joy and forgiveness. Everything
you do in life begins with
thoughts, which lead to words,
then actions, then habits and
that defines character. Keep
your heart with all dilligence."


Ronnie (Hootie) Jones, Sr. worked in phosphate industry
for 46 years and admires Bowden, who was recently
inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame along
with fellow coach Joe Paterno of Penn State.


Ben and Robyn Norris enjoyed meeting Coach Bowden.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Fire Chief Mike Choate is
recommending a change in
requirements on monitored fire
alarm systems.
At its meeting last Thursday,
Choate referred the Hardee
County Commission to Section
21 of the Fire Code ordinance.
He said recent meetings of the
Hardee County Fire Assessment
Committee recommended the
change and he is quite willing
to endorse it.
Choate explained that the
section presently requires new
businesses and educational sys-
tems to have a monitored fire
alarm system whether it -is a
stand alone facility, within 20
feet of another building or
attached to other busi-
nesses/facilities.
The monitored alarm gives
firefighters a better chance of
responding as soon as a fire
breaks out rather than waiting
until a passerby notices it.
"These kind of alarms are about
early notification, especially in
the downtown historic district
of old buildings. But, they are a
lot more expensive," he said.
Actually, the current code is

more stringent than the state or
federal codes and the proposal
is to go back to not exceeding
those standards, he said.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
asked what would happen if the
change was made, there is no
fire and people ask why there
was no alarm. "When is enough
enough?" he queried, referring
to the expense for the moni-
tored system, which could run
as much as $100,000 to
$300,000 dollars.
Choate said the fire rules
were promulgated by insurance
companies to have less risk to
them. But a normal fire alarm
system and fire suppres-
sion/sprinkler system. He said
98 percent of fires could be pre-
vented or put out by the sprin-
kler system.
SChoate was told to go ahead
with a proposed change to the
ordinance and it would be
advertised for a public hearing.
He felt many would support it
because of the significant sav-
ings in today's economy.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved a proclamation
of March as/Firefighter Ap-pre-
ciation Month as requested by

tion for raising $2,500 in its

dents with medical services,

-awarded the annual bid for

ance to the inlet box requrre-
ment for piping for four tempo-

cumstances, said Tom Myers of
Mosaic. When finished Mosaic

done in other situations.

Baseball Pre-Season Over'


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Five games gone, and it's
time to start the regular season.
Hardee varsity baseball got a
lot of experience even before
the regular season began
Tuesday with a double-header
at Sebring, the JV teams play-
ing at 4:30 and the varsity
squads at 7:30 p.m.
The only other games this
month are Friday's varsity visit
from district rival Sarasota
Cardinal Mooney and the JV
trip up to Fort Meade.
Next week, the varsity plays
at Sarasota Booker on Tuesday
in a 4 p.m. game because
Booker has no field lights. On
Wednesday, the Wildcats host
Fort Meade at 7:30 and on
Friday it is another double-
header with Sebring, this one on
Hardee's field at 4:30 and 7:30.
Hardee has played in a pair of
tournaments in Lake Wales in
the last two weeks. The first,
Feb.9-11 was hosted by Fort
Meade.
In the opening game, Hardee
played against a tough McKeel
Academy squad which won 10-
0. "We were an inexperienced
group and it showed," said
Hardee head coach Steve
Rewis.
Kalan Royal had the only
Hardee hit. Jake Mayer was
safe on catcher interference and
Kody Porter drew a walk. All
three were stranded were team-
mates could not bring them
home.
Hardee did better in its game
against Fort Meade, losing 7-4.
The Wildcats left runners
aboard or scored them in nearly
every inning, although nine
went down on strikeouts by
Miner Trentott Spears. Justin
Knight and Kyle Ward both sin-
gled in the first inning but were
left at second and third.
Down 3-0 in the top of the
third, Hardee plated a pair of
runs. Conner Davis got aboard
on an error: Knight walked, but


was out on a Scott Donaldson
fielder's choice. Ward doubled
to score both teammates. He
was out at third on a fielder's
choice hit by Josh Rickett.
Each team picked up a run in
the fourth. Mayer got Hardee's,
when he was safe on an error
and moved around the bases
before the third out. It was 4-3.
The Miners added a run in the
fifth and two more in the sixth.
Hardee got its only additional
run in the sixth. Carson Davis
singled, and worked around
home, scoring before the final
out.
The next tournament, Feb.
15-19 was hosted by Lake
Wales.
In game one on Monday,
Hardee went up against Lake
Gibson, with its heavily scouted
pitcher Ben Freeman. Hardee
hurler Tyler Cobb held the
Braves in check until the third
inning when one runner crossed
home plate. Another came
home in the fourth inning and
five more in the fifth to give the
Braves a 7-0 win.
There weren't many high-
lights for Hardee, which had 15
batters go down on strikes.
Wintz Terrell singled to right
field in the fifth. In the sixth
Conner Davis walked, Porter
singled but a double-play
retired the side. In the top of
the seventh, Lincoln Saunders
was safe on an error but was
stranded on first.
On Tuesday night, Hardee
faced the home team. The
Highlanders claimed a 5-1 vic-
tory. Ward struck out a half
dozen batters, but seven went
down on strikes for Hardee.
The Wildcats' lone run came
in the second frame, when
Royal was hit by a pitch, went
to second on a Knight walk and
home when Mayer singled and
an overthrow at third gave
Royal the chance to come
home.
Hardee's final tourney game
last Thursday was against

Bradenton's IMG Pendleton
Academy, ranked fifth in the
nation. Pendleton scored once
in the top of the first, and
Hardee went in front with a pair
of tallies in the home half of the
inning. Porter' singled and
Donaldson tripled. He came
home on a Royal hit. Ward dou-
bled, but he and Royal were left
standing on the bases.
It rocked along as a 2-1 game
until the third, when Hardee
padded its lead with a run.
Donaldson was hit by a pitch,
stole second and raced home on
a Royal hit. Pendleton made it a
3-2 game with a solo homer in
the fourth inning and went in
front with a trio of scores in a
fifth-inning bat-around which
left the bases stacked.
Down 5-3, the Wildcats
added their final score in the
home half of the fifth. Ward sin-
gled, advanced on a Knight h it
and came home on a Dalton
Farr sacrifice. Pendleton added
an insurance run in the top of
the seventh and retired Hardee
in order in the bottom of the
inning to take the 7-4 win.
"Considering the weather and
the level of competition, I think
we competed well. Of course,
we're disappointed to lose. We
played everyone and gave
everyone a chance to get some
time in. Facing that kind of
competition early will be good
in the long run," said Rewis.

Sports Update
By Joan Seaman


The dull time between winter and spring sports has ended
quickly.
There has been a full slate of activities this past week or two.
Girls softball got started first, and already has a 3-1 season
record after a heart-breaking 11-10 extra-inning loss at home to
Palmetto on Friday night.
Speaking of softball, congratulations to senior
centerfielder/shortstop Chelsey Steedley, who completed her con-
tract Friday with Chipola College in Mariana in northwest Florida.
She will adding to a winning tradition there.
Tennis boys and girls are busy with practices and matches, with
two more this week. The boys team has no seniors and the girls
only have two seniors, which puts Hardee in a strong position in
coming years.
Boys baseball had a pair of pre-season tournament against some
super competition, both on the~lhound and with the bats. Hardee
didn't win any but made a good showing, with improvement in
each game. The varsity and JV had the unenviable task of going to
Sebring for a double-header on Tuesday, weather permitting.
There's a huge group of fellows and gals out for spring track.
There are 26 girls and 40 boys competing for Hardee this season.
Hardee should be strong in both track and field events under the
direction of Rob Beatty, Rdd Smith, James Carpenter and Gloria
Solis.
Carpenter also directs the off-season local track club of kids
from elementary through high school. They have had some good
experiences in pursuing their running and other events.
Boys weightlifting is also getting under way this week. There
are 14 lifters from the smaller through heavyweight divisions. Of
course, many are football players.
Speaking of football, youth football players and cheerleaders
excelling academically as well as athletically were feted a couple
of Saturday ago in Tampa. They are Isabel Abel, Laynisi Aguilar,
Colton Albritton, Landon Albritton, Stephanie Belmares, Parker
Carlton, Braddock Collom, Brooke Fones, Brooklyn Graham,
Claudia Klein, Hayden Lindsey and Boone Paris.
A handful are advancing to the regional level and will be rec-
ognized in Orlando on March 27. That includes Colton Albritton,
Landon Albritton, Graham, Klein, Lindsey and Paris. Good job,
kids!
In pro boxing, local pros Jenna Shiver and Edner Cherry both
did well in last Friday nights boxing in Tampa. Jenna, known as
"Cowgirl," won her four-round bout on a unanimous decision,
while Cherry got a first-round TKO when the ref stopped the bout
before the end-of the first round. The "Cherry Bomb" cornered his
opponent and was applying heavy blows when the ref stopped the
fight.
The final Hardee pro, Daniel Lozano, signed with TKO on
Friday and has two bouts scheduled, one in Georgia in April and
another in Tampa in June.
Teacher Charlie Potter keeps active outside the classroom. He
can often be seen pounding the pavement in such events as "One
Hillacious Run," and others that he fosters for local benefits. To
acknowledge his 60th birthday, he went all out training and com-
peted in the Walt Disney Marathon on one of the coldest days in
January. He completed the race in four hours 55 minutes, a very
good time considering the weather.
Hardee bowlers continue to achieve at local, regional and state
tournaments. Recently, Pat Johnson and Judy Rowe teamed up to
take first place in doubles in the state seniors bowling tournament
in Tavares. They also placed in singles and the all-events category.
Don't forget that the Harlem Globetrotters will be in Arcadia on
Tuesday as part of their world tour. In their 84th season, the
Globetrotters will showcase their high-flying basketball hijinks,
beginning at 7 p.m. in the Turner Agri-Civic Center, 2250 NE Roan
St., Arcadia, about a block or two north of the high school. Tickets
start at $17 and can be obtained on-line at www.ticketweb.com or
www.harlemglobetrotters.com or by phone at 866-468-3401. There
are group and Scout tickets available too.

Anglers Get Reward For


Tagged Largemouth Bass


Biologists with the Florida
Fish & Wildlife Conservation
Commission and the University
of Florida need assistance with
a statewide largemouth bass
research study.
This year-long project is an
interactive way for the public to
help biologists obtain critical
information necessary to man-
age the largemouth bass fishery
for quality and trophy-sized
fish.
From this study, biologists
hope to learn how frequently
bass are caught and harvested.
They als6 hope to learn more
about the size range of fish
caught.
Biologists are tagging large-
mouth bass with-small, yellow
tags along the back of the fish
just below the dorsal fin. These
tags carry a printed telephone
number, e-mail address, tag
number and reward value.
Anglers should carefully
examine all bass caught in
Florida lakes for reward tags, as
biologists will tag fish in
numerous lakes throughout the
state.
Anglers are asked to remove
these tags by cutting them as
close to the fish as possible, and
then treat the fish as they would

study will receive a reward for

SOCIAL EVENTS
I, for one, have always
thought that a social event is
meant to get together and have
a good time; smile a lot and
make each other laugh. I do not
think it is time to bother the
management of the park. The
management would like to go to
social events and not be both-
ered with park business.
If you have something that
needs addressed there are ways
to complain here at Orange
Blossom. First you need to go
to the office and fill out a com-
plaint sheet. Make sure you sign
the paper. The office is open 9-
noon Monday through Friday. If
you are not able to make their
hours, I am sure that the man-
agement would make an ap-
pointment with you. Social
events are not the time or place
to talk to the management.
Some of us like the manage-
ment and like to see them at dif-
ferent events-

ASSOCIATION MEETING
As you all know there was an
association meeting this last
Tuesday. It was a good meeting.
If you wanted the park benches
you should have been there to
support Karol Wells as it was
voted against and there will be
no park benches.
There will be an election of
officers at the next meeting,
which will be March 16. If you
are interested in an office,
please let that be known.
The meeting was short and
there were ice cream cones
served after the meeting. I think
it was one of the coldest nights
of the year, and we ate ice
cream cones?

I was supposed to work in the

Saturday and felt too bad.
Sherman worked and had a
good time. He said they
laughed a lot and got the straw-

has ever eaten. Kay Crews
stopped by and offered her
assistance since there was not
many helping in the booth.
Sherman said Kay fixed a

really perfect and later on the

that was a good banana split but
there was no banana! Things
like this are really funny when
you are getting tired and a little

Kay helping since I was not
able to go. If you haven't
stopped at the 4-H booth you
still have time to get some good

Quite a few of the youth in

out and cheer them on!

adult, 18 years or older. How-
ever. any adult supervisor who


has a hunting license and the
necessary. permits will be
allowed to "call in" the turkey
and otherwise participate in the
hunt, but they will not be per-
mitted to harvest one.


The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) passed new
rules Wednesday, opening more
public land to hunters and
establishing a special spring
turkey hunting weekend just for
Florida's youths.
Effective July 1, new parcels
of public land will be included
within the state's wildlife man-
agement area (WMA) system
and available for hunting during
the 2010-2011 hunting season.
Included in these new areas is
the 1,290-acre Fort White
Mitigation Park in Gilchrist
County. The property will
have an archery season, small-
game season and spring turkey
season.
The Lafayette Forest Wild-
life and Environmental Area
(WEA) is another tract com-.
prising 2,148 acres in Lafayette
County, which will offer
archery, muzzleloading gun,
family, wild hog and spring
turkey hunts.
The 9,754-acre Charles H.
Bronson WMA in Orange and
Seminole counties will feature
archery, muzzleloading gun,
general gun, small-game and
spring turkey hunts. The par-
cel is cooperatively owned by
the state's Division of Forestry,
the St. Johns River Water
Management District and
Orange County.
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection's 6,445-acre
Marshall Swamp in Marion
County, currently a public
small-game hunting area, will
become a full-blown WMA,
offering archery, muzzleloader,
general gun, small game and
spring turkey hunts.
Watermelon Pond WEA is a
4,231-acre tract in Alachua
County that is cooperatively
owned by the Division of
Forestry and the FWC. It too
will feature an archery season
and small-game hunts.
Youth hunters are sure to
benefit from yet another rule
passed by the FWC. This one
establishes a two-day youth
turkey hunt on private property
the weekend prior to the open-
ing of spring turkey season in
each hunting zone, beginning
with the 2011 spring turkey sea-
son. Only those under 16 years
old will be allowed to harvest a

Softball Girls Now 3-1 FAIR FUN


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Heralti-Advocate
It's two weeks into the season
and already the Hardee girls
softball team have fashioned a
3-1 record and had a pair of
rainouts.
After splitting pre-season
games, the Lady Wildcats were
set to start the season in earnest
with a home game against
Sebring, but weather interfered.
They won 13-1 at Avon Park on
Feb. 11 and were going to
Mulberry on Feb. 12 when the
rains came.
Last week was a bit of a dif-
ferent story. The girls won at
Winter Haven against All
SSaint's Academy, picked up a
Forfeit win at Sarasota Booker
when the home team didn't
show up on Thursday and lost
an extra inning heartbreaker to
. visiting Palmetto on Friday
Night.
This week's games were
SMonday at, Lakeland George
Jenkins and Tuesday at home
i for a visit from district oppo-
Snent Bradenton Southeast.
Next week, the girls start at
home on Tuesday against
Booker, greet Mulberry on
Thursday and face Cardinal
Mooney at home on Friday
night.
HARDEE 7, ALL SAINT'S 0
At All Saint's Academy on
Feb. 16, Hardee began scoring
from the get-g.q "We won but
we didn't play wVell. There was
too much watching at the plate.
Their pitcher plays for the
SPuerto Rican national team.
And, it was too cold!" com-
mented Hardee head coach
Sharri Knight.
Senior Chelsey Steedley was
safe on an infield hit and stole
second. With one away, class-
mate Kristina Garcia walked.
Both girls advanced on steals,
ready to race home when junior
Elvira Servin smacked a three-
RBI homer to clear the bases.
All Saint's drew a walk to
start the home half of the first,
but left that batter stranded
when the next three batters
went down in order.
Neither team scored in the
second frame. Courtney Parks
and Steedley were left on base
for Hardee. In the top of the
third, Garcia and Servin both
walked. With two down, they
stole bases. Garcia came home
on a pickoff error and Servin
scored on an error on a Taylor
Bolin hit. It was 5-0.


The Lady 'Cats continued to
hold All Saint's scoreless, while
adding another run in the fourth
and the final run in the sixth. In
the fourth, Kayla Knight sin-
gled, -stole second and raced
home on a Servin hit up the
middle. In the sixth inning, it
was Steedley who was hit by a
pitch, stole second and hurried
home on a Knight double to
deep right center field.
Knight picked up another win
on the mound, recording 11
strikeouts in shutting the All
Saint's squad down.
Thursday was the futile trip
to Booker, which resulted in a
1-0 forfeit win.
PALMETTO 11, HARDEE 10
On Friday, Hardee hosted 5A
Palmetto. Early on, Knight was
solid on the mound, but lost
momentum late in the game.
The Tigers' first batter walked,
the next was safe on a bunt
when no one covered first base.
Knight struck out the next two
batters and got a fly-out from
the last one, leaving two on
base.
Steedley flied out. Knight
and Garcia hit back-to-back sin-
gles. When Garcia's hit dropped
in short right field, Knight was
able to slide into third under the
relay. Servin's hit went off the
pitcher's glove but she was
called out on the infield fly rule.
Senior Heather St. John's hit to
right field was muffed, allowing
Knight and Garcia to score.
Palmetto was again four up,
three down in the top of the sec-
ond. Hardee added a run.
Bolin singled to right field,
Danika Briones walked. Bolin
stole third and came home on
an overthrow pickoff attempt
by the catcher. It was 3-0.
Still holding Palmetto score-
less in the top of the third,
Hardee padded its lead by triple
tallies in the third. Garcia
dropped another shot into short
left field. Servin followed it
with a bouncer off the pitcher's
glove. Both girls advanced on
passed balls before St. John
slipped one past third to bring
Garcia home. Amber Hines fol-
lowed with a two-RBI double
over the center fielder, upping
-Hardee's lead to 6-0.
At the end of the third,
Steedley left for Miss Hardee
County practice, leaving a bit of
a hole to be filled. That seemed
to get Palmetto going in the top
of the fourth. The first sacker
was safe on an error and was
doubled home by the pitcher. It


was 6-1.
Hardee got that run back in
the bottom of the fourth. Emily
Starratt nearly beat out a hit to
the shortstop who bobbled it,
and winged the ball to first. A
nice stretch by the first sacker
nipped the runner. Knight beat
out her shot to deep short.
Garcia hit to right field and
Knight advanced to third.
Garcia was given a courtesy
steal to second and both runners
tried to score on an error on a
St. John hit. Knight made it and
Garcia was called out at the
plate.
Having begun to score,
Palmetto continued, picking up
three runs in the fifth inning on
four hits. Hines wanted to make
up for it and tripled to deep
right center to start the home
half of the fifth. She came home
on a Bolin sacrifice. The
Palmetto pitcher Sarah Hine,
was picking up momentum and
struck out the next two batters.
it was 8-4.
Lady Luck was sitting square
on the shoulders of the Lady
Tigers, who took the lead 9-8-
with a bat-around top of the
sixth. Five runs came in on four
hits and an error.
Hardee tied the game in the
bottom of the seventh. Hines
got her third hit of the night,
stole second, went to third on a
passed ball and came home on a
Bolin hit.
There were strange calls in
the top of the eighth. Knight
picked up her fourth strikeout
on the first batter. The next one
singled up the middle. An error
on the next play put runners on
the .corners. Hine dropped a
shot over the left fielder's head
to score the first runner. Knight
struck out another batter. On the
next play, the hit went to the
shortstop, who relayed it to
first. It was bobbled and the
runner from third crossed home
plate before the runner at first
was tagged out instead of
forced out. It put Palmetto in
the lead 11-9.
With two away in the bottom
of the eighth, Hardee wasn't
ready to quit. Starratt was safe
at first on a throwing error by
the shortstop and went on to
second. Knight then dropped
one in left field and Starratt
kept running to cross home
plate and make it 11-10. Knight
got to third on the overthrow.
Garcia tried to keep it going
with a fly to right field but the
fielder held on to the ball to end
the game.

75 YEARS AGO
The South Florida Basketball
Conference Tournament opens
this afternoon in Bartow, and
the first game is scheduled to
start at 2:30 ,o'clock. Clear-
water, last year's champion, is
the favorite to again capture the

same team as they had last sea-
son. The conference is com-
posed of Winter Haveni, Clear-
water, Fort Myers, Bradenton,
Sarasota, Palmetto, Arcadia,
Bartow and Wauchula.
There was a good attendance
at the weekly Lions club lun-
cheon on last Wednesday, at the
Simmons Hotel, and it was also
one of the best meetings that the
club has held in some time. The
singing was in charge of Lion
Albert Lane, with Miss Mabel
Nicks at the piano, who also
sang one of her delightful solos.
Creation of a permanent state
planning board, to take up the
work of the present temporary
organization, will be recom-
mended to the 1935 Legislature
by Gov. Dave Sholtz. A pro-
posed legislative act for creat-
ing a board of five members
already had been prepared by
the planning board, and is
included in a "progress report,"
just made public, of the board's
activities during 1934.
The weekly meeting of the
Wauchula Kiwanis Club was
held on last Tuesday at the
Woman's Club building, with
splendid attendance. President
Latimer C. Farr presided, while
Borden Wilson had charge of
the singing, with Miss Mabel
Nicks at the piano. The program
was in charge of Rev. J.P.
Gains, pastor of First Methodist
church, who announced the
musical numbers.
50 YEARS AGO

uated from local schools and
received his law degree from
the University of Florida in

Commerce prepares for Sat-
urday's arrival of Pat Boone,
who will be performing a con-
cert that night at the Wildcat

SFCC Presents The Tamburitzans


Wauchula. It is' there in the
exhibition hall, rodeo arena and
Agri-Civic Center that
events will be held. And, of
course the midway will fill the
open air.
Garbage! Solid waste dispos-
al, trash, sanitary landfill, by
whatever name you call it it's
still a question of how to handle
garbage. County commission-
ers tried to look ahead five
years and begin planning ways
to take care of the county's
garbage, an estimated 40-60
tons a day. It's a costly decision.
The county's landfill and recy-
cling budget increased from
$2.4 million last year to $3.1
million this fiscal year, primari-
ly because of state requirements
which were a condition to
renew the landfill operating
permit.
A tough overtime victory at
Lake Placid last week could be
Sa tune-up for the Class 4A
District 11 playoffs which
began last night (Wednesday).
The Cats entered district play
seeded third, with a 6-4 record.
Their quarter-final game
Wednesday was against winless
sixth-seed East Bay, which
Hardee downed 58-34 and 77-
66 during regular season.
Lady Wildcat senior Heather
Albritton saved her best for last.
The center, who has paced the
Lady Cats all season, put
together back-to-back 38- and
32-point performances during
the district playoffs last week,
at least a school, if not a play-
off, record. Albritton's endeav-
ors enabled Hardee to master
rival Lake Placid 55-41 in
opening action last Tuesday
night. In the late game, Lake
Wales downed Mulberry 46-39.

Museum Musings
By Sandy Scott
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


MAJOR BOZE AMATEUR HOUR
Sometimes when an item is received at Cracker Trail Museum,
additional research is done in order to bring a full picture and back-
ground to the acquisition.
An example of this occurred recently when five paper items
were donated by Frances Davis. Two of the items were original
programs from the "Major Boze Amateur Hour" presented by
Wauchula's Order of the Eastern Star. The show was actually a
takeoff on American radio's best-known talent show, "The Major
Bowes' Amateur Hour," and one was presented at the Wauchula
Auditorium on Friday, April 2, 1937, at 8 p.m.
The second "Major Boze Amateur Hour" program stated that
it was presented on April 3 at 8 p.m. Unfortunately, the second one
did not include the year; however, since it might be assumed that it
also could have been presented on a Friday evening, further
research began.
The first thing was to look at the Friday possibilities on a Web
site which includes the days on which any given date falls in any
given year. Since the first program was actually in 1937, an
assumption was made that the second one was probably around that
era. It was discovered that Friday fell on April 3rd in 1936.
The next part of the research involved looking through the pro-
gram at some of the advertisers to try to date the program by some
of those names. There was a "Compliments of C.S. Dishong,
Sheriff of Hardee County,". a "Compliments of W.A. Hendry,
Candidate for Representative," a "Compliments of A. Yancy
Teachy, Candidate for County Judge" as well as a couple of others.
With these three names, further, research discovered that in
June 1936, Clyde Maddox won the election for county judge ovei
A.Y. Teachy, that William A. Hendry faced a runoff in that election,
but ultimately won the race for representative and that, of course,
C.S. Dishong actually served as sheriff from 1922-1938.
In addition, Sen. H.G. Murphy donated a $15 first prize, and
research discovered that he served during the years of 1933-1939.
With this research as well as the probable Friday evening per-
formance, it could now be assumed that the year was 1936 for the
April 3 program.
That sounds like a lot of research as well as supposition, and
perhaps better time might have been spent by contacting some of
those performers but, alas, they were already dead or unknown to
this researcher, so the approximate two hours spent provided the
additional information that was sought after!
The March 26, 1937, edition of The Florida Advocate ran a
front-page item discussing the up and coming production of the
Order of the Eastern Star's "Major Boze Amateur Hour Variety
Show" to be presented on April 2, 1937. It indicated that there
would b6 a Main. Street businessman who had consented to whistle
a solo for the program and was "observed practicing on his way up
and down Main Street while on business." According tq the arti-
cle, another unnamed Main Street businessman would be perform-
ing on his musical saw.

Reading the performers listed in that original program
revealed that M.A. Farmer was that "Whistling Business Man" and
the "Saw Man" was J.S. Schweigart.
The additional paper items donated by Frances Davis consist-
ed of programs from the Wauchula Grammar School's production
"The Big Bandanna Minstrels" performed on Feb. 17 (same
research proved the year to be 1938), a program from the Lions
Club production of "An Evening of Minstrelsy" performed on
April 5, 1940, and a program from the Primary Department of
Wauchula Elementary School for its production "Awake! Tis May"
performed on April 1 at 8:15 p.m.
Not knowing the day of this last performance, it is just
assumed that it was in these 1930s years. It is interesting to note
that Nellie Schweigart appeared as "Flower Queen" and Jean
Bostick (Burton) appeared as "The Fairy Queen" in this last named
production.
So what has all of this research actually achieved?
Primarily it gives the visitor a complete description of those
paper items that are now displayed in the glass case at Cracker Trail
Museum, and it may provide interesting information to those indi-
viduals whose relatives were participants in these 1930s produc-
tions.
Realizing how entertaining these programs could be for a vis-
itor to read but at the same time realizing how fragile the originals
are, we have provided an alternative. As you visit Cracker Trail
Museum and view the front pages of the original documents dis-
played under glass, you may want to pick up the bound copy of

these precious souvenirs that Frances Davis kept all of these years.
They have been reproduced for your enjoyment and placed on the
top of the case.
These mementoes deserve to be cherished, but they also
deserve to be shared with Hardee County folks who may remem-
ber when Dunning Terrell played "Brutus Bates" in the Wauchula
Grammar School production of "The Big Bandanna Minstrels" and
when Nellie Schweigart (age 8) tap danced in the "Major Boze
Amateur Hour" production in 1937. These additional tidbits could
not be enjoyed by only viewing the fronts. of the. programs dis-
played within the confines of the glass case.
Won't you consider visiting Cracker Trail Museum to share in
the enjoyment of those items that have been so graciously donated,?
And while you're at it, why not consider going through your mem-
ories and sharing them with us as Frances Davis did?


POTTER TURNS 60


COURTESY PHOTO
In preparation for his 60th birthday, Charlie Potter, a local
teacher, decided to do something unique. So, he has
spent his days conditioning and making sure he was in
shape. It was not just to welcome the milestone of turn-
ing 60, but to welcome the mile marker of the Walt Disney
World Marathon which took place on Jan. 10. Beginning
his training in June, Potter was prepared for the race, but
the weather took him by surprise. The race began at 5:40
a.m. in the 26 degrees with a 15 to 20 mph constant wind,
joined by 17,000 other runners. The Gatorade offered at
the first few stations had turned to slush and any water
spilled became frozen, making for a treacherous track.
His family and friends were able to see him run by in the
Magic Kingdom at the 11 mile mark, and on the board-
walk at mile 23. Finishing the marathon in 4 hours and 55
minutes makes for a birthday that will be forever remem-
bered, Potter says.

Tennis Teams Start On Road


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Imagine the first four outings
on the road.
The 2010 Hardee High tennis
teams have just that challenge.
Plus the extremely cold weather
last week.
Obviously, we're not in mid-
season form yet. We're looking
better and getting there," said
boys coach Ken Leupold. His
wife Barbara coaches the girls
squad.
The teams are in a huge Class
2A-District 8, along with
Auburndale, Lake Wales, Mul-
berry and Teneroc of Polk
County, Kissimmee Poinciana
in Osceola County, and Avon
Park, Lake Placid and Sebring
of Highlands County. When
district playoffs come along, the
boys will play at Avon Park and
the girls at Sebring.
Both tennis teams are some-
what experienced, but not at the
level they are playing.
For the girls, there are seniors
Paige Clark and Kayla Woods;
juniors Lacie Carlton, Kate
Krause and Emily Williams;
sophs Mesqua Field, Lindsey
Martin, Summer Palmer and
Taylor Pohl; and freshmen
Anna Saldivar, Robin Tanksley
and Patricia Wheeler.
On the boys squad are juniors
Kyle Bodeck, Justin Fones,
Hunter Henderson, Dylan.
Justice, Adam Lazrak and Juan
Mier; sophs Matthew Godwin,
Matt Burrus and Jared Jernigan;
and freshman Arpin Lazrak.
The season began last
Tuesday with a trip to Sarasota
to play Booker. Hardee boys


managed a doubles tie in their
first outing of the year.
Junior Mier opened at num-
ber one, playing tough against
Tornado Brandon Gusto in a 7-
6 first set, with six deuces, than
a 6-0 loss in the second set.
Justice went against Edward
Soulancros in a 6-1, 6-1 loss
and Bodeck took Brad Baserop
to 6-2, 6-4. Fones continued
with a 6-0, 6-0 loss to Aldo
Castro and Henders battled
Quinton Clark 6-4, 6-0. In an
extra singles Godwin fought
Andy Ng to a 6-3 then 7-6 loss
with a half dozen deuces in the
second set.
In the boys doubles, Mier/-
Bodeck were down 7-1 but
came storming back to tie
Gusto/Soulandros 7-7 when the
match was called because of
darkness as Booker has no court
lights. While the number one
singles were battling,
Fones/Henderson played Bos-
erop/Castro to an 8-1 loss.
At Booker, the Hardee girls
also did not go down easily.
Soph Palmer moved up to num-
ber one this season and played
Shelby Johnson 6-1, 6-2.
Krause played at number two
and challenged Dara Kates, los-
ing 7-5 in the opening set and 6-
6 in the second on a 7-5 final
point play.
Woods took on Andrea Roche
at number three 'and gradually
gave way in a 6-3, 7-5 loss.
Martin continued against
Danielle Dygert in a 6-2, 7-5
loss and Williams went down 6-
3, 7-5 to Gena Lipps. Pohl was
to be in an extra singles, but it
was cancelled.


At number one doubles,
Palmer/Krause lost 3-2 to
Booker when time was called
and Woods/Martin lost 8-2 to
Roche/Dygert. The extra dou-
bles didn't get played either.
Last Thursday, both teams
went .to Sebring, where im-
proved play was obvious.
Hardee lost 6-1 but had several
matches go to the third set. Mier
lost 6-4, 6-2 to Kyle Komisar
and Justice played lost 6-1, 6-1
to Nikhil Ragaveera. Bodeck
drove Brian Miller to a third set
6-0, 3-6, 1l-l,while Fones lost
to Andrew Midence 6-0, 6-3.
Henderson dropped his match
to Andrew Keith 6-0, 6-1, as
Godwin played to the third set
in his 6-2, 2-6, 6-1 loss to Sam
Galanti.
In the boys doubles,
Mier/Bodeck lost 8-3 to
Komisar/Midence. Fones/Hen-
derson combined to beat Rag-
aveera/Bruce Simpson 9-8 with
five service points on the final
point.
Hardee girls also took the
Lady Streaks to extended sets.
Palmer played Kelsie Johnson
in a 6-1, 6-1 loss and Krause
went 6-0, 6-2 to Kaley Walter.
Shana Bassett downed Woods
6-3, 6-1, while Martin carried
Joy Douglason to 6-1, 6-7 with
a 7-4 final point, and 7-5.
Williams lost 6-0, 6-1 to
Lauren Taylor, while Pohl
played an extra match in a 7-5,
1-6, 6-3 loss.
In the doubles Johnson/-
Walter won 7-5, 6-0 over Pal-
mer/Krause at number one, and
Woods/Martin lost 8-3 to
Bassett/Douglason.

Nutrition

lNotles

Q: Can diet lower risk of
lymphoma as much as it does
other cancers?
A: We still have much to
learn about lymphoma's link to
diet. The strongest evidence at
this time is the increased risk
posed by being overweight.
Excess body fat increases
inflammation through the body
and seems to affect immune
function.
In one study, obesity in-
creased risk of non-Hodgkin's
lymphoma 36 to 59 percent in
women and men, respectively.
The mostly plant-based diet
recommended to reduce overall
cancer risk may also be helpful
in reducing risk of lymphoma,
though much of the evidence at
this point is not strong.
Increasing vegetables, espe-
cially cruciferous vegetables
such as broccoli, may be help-
ful; probably because of their
phytochemicals that stimulate
enzymes involved in the activa-
tion and deactivation of car-
cinogens, as well as their
impact as antioxidants.
Excessive amounts of meat
and/or fat (especially saturated
or animal fat) may increase risk,
but the evidence is tentative.
Some studies show increased
risk with high dairy consump-
tion, but it's important to con-
sider that a "high" consumption
of foods depends upon the pop-
ulation studied. For example, in
a Swedish study, increased risk
related to dairy consumption
was seen in those consuming
more than six-and-a-half serv-
ings daily, far above what
would be "high" in the U.S.
As research progresses we
should know more, but for now
we can most reliably place
greatest emphasis on weight
control and on balanced, plant-
based eating for optimal effects
on immune system and overall
lower cancer risk.

expression of my person-
ality.

Track Teams Ready To Go


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee boys and girls
track teams are working out
every day in preparation for
their regular season.
Both teams were slated to go
to the Cardinal Mooney meet
on Feb. 20 and the girls were
hoping to be in the Early Bird
Tourney at Sebring last week.
After a couple of invitation-
als, the teams settle down to
start their seasons in late
February. A full schedule is not
available as yet.
The season stretches to the
April 14 district meet at
Sarasota Booker and, hopefully,
on to the regional and state
meets.
Four coaches are dividing the
specialities this year. Rob
Beatty will handle middle dis-
trict runners and the pole vault.
Rod Smith takes care of the
jumpers and hurdlers. James
Carpenter pays attention to the

Get Gift

Certificates
Heartland for Children
awarded $65,000 in mini-grants
to 27 local organizations serv-
ing children and families in
Hardee, Highlands and Polk
counties.
These mini-grants will pro-
vide additional funding to local
organizations for their commu-
nitywide efforts to support chil-
dren and families.
Ridge Area Arc was one of
the recipients. Through the
mini-grant, Arc is providing gift
certificates to low-income fam-
ilies with children so they can
purchase needed items for their
family and/or home at one of
Arc's two thrift stores.
The goal is to provide support
services for families by provid-
ing basic resources such as
clothing, bedding, furniture and
other items to help insure the
health and well being of their
children.
Ridge Area Arc has given
these $25 gift certificates to
Healthy Start in Hardee County

each putting a pair of runs on
the board, and Fidencio Davila,

added defensively.
Tyler Lambert was the only
twin-tally batter for the
Lugnuts. Dylan Bozeman,

:nlA GAu3 OD
me ile G er.a

A fellow was leaving a
Veterans' Hospital, and a
friend said, "I didn't know
you were wounded during the
war."
"I wasn't wounded," he
answered. "I was injured."
"Which battle?" he asked.
"It wasn't in a battle," he
said, "I was running from a
battle."
As it was with him, so it is
with the soldiers of the Lord.
It's either duty or desertion.
With Jonah it was desertion.
Running from the Lord, he en-
countered a smashing storm.
Then he was swallowed by a
great fish. You're never safe
when you're sinning.
Be true to the Lord at any
cost. Do your duty, your
whole duty, and nothing but
your duty!

Bright Ruby-Red Bird



Brightens Up Winter


MILES TO GO!


By JESSICA BASHAM
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Happy winter!
Most gardens and woods look brown and
empty in winter. We don't see as many animals
as we do here in the summertime. The cold air
makes animals seek warmth under leaves, logs
or low-lying branches.
However, one animal keeps busy and
brightens nature during winter. The
Northern cardinal is hard to miss, flit-
tering and flying around. He is -
bright red, so he stands out when .,J
perched on brown tree branches. -.
Cardinals do not migrate like ..
other birds. They don't seem to BAC i
mind the cold, so they stay put. t
That may be one reason the cardinal r "T 7
is considered a Christmas bird.
Images of the bird can be seen on orna-
ments, cards and many other winter decora-
tions.
The male cardinal is bright ruby red. Its face
and throat are black, and he has a bright orange
beak. The female cardinal is very different in
color. She is mostly brown; but the same ruby-
red colors of the male dust her wings and tail.
Her beak is not as bright as the male's and looks
almost pink. Both have a telltale crest or point-
ed tuft of head feathers.
Northern cardinals are one of many birds
that have learned to live in cities, especially in
parks and garden areas. They also live in the
country, in wooded areas or areas with lots of
shrubs and bushes.
Northern cardinals make their nests from
twigs and grasses and build them low to the


ground in thickets and bushes. When the
females lay eggs, they lay 2-5 whitish eggs
marked with browns and grays.
During winter, look out your window and you
may see many at once. During the warmer mat-
ing season, you may see only one female and
one male at a time.
Ask your mom or dad if you can go outside
and lay down in the grass so you can look up
into the trees. Don't be disappointed if you
don't see one right away. You may need
/' to ask your mom or dad to put out
,.l ,' ,/ some sunflower seeds. They love
.- ./ them! Northern cardinals also eat
fruit and small insects.
A Cardinals are not the only
.'\ watching birds, ask if you can bor-
row some binoculars. Binoculars are
a neat way to see birds up close.
Start keeping a journal of the birds you see.
If you write down their colors and other things
about them, you will be able to look them up.
You can also visit MyFWC.com for some fun
birding activities and to become a junior birder
by joining the Wings Over Florida Junior Birder
Program!
If you see a cardinal, it is said you will
have luck. So next time you see one, make a
wish!
Kids, Jessica Basham knows all about
animals! She works fbr the state Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Look for her Backyard Safari every
month. You can ask her questions at
Jessica. Basham @ MyFWC. con.


It seems to me that people have vast potential. Most people can do extraordinary
things if they have the confidence or take the risks. Yet most people don't. They sit in
front of the telly and treat life as if it goes on forever.

The number of bicyclists along Hardee County roadways has been increasing of late.
"It's a great way to see our county," one rider, Dick Daggett of Wauchula, speculates.
Riders, of course, come from other counties as well, sometimes trucking in their bicy-
cles, parking and then pedaling for miles before returning to their vehicles. Here (from
left) Daggett and Rocky Kitchens, also of Wauchula, and Zolfo Springs winter resident
Dan Humphrey stop on the wooden bridge at the north end of Boyd Cowart Road. "We
have to stop and walk across wooden bridges so our tires don't get caught between
the boards," says Daggett. These riders, he notes, take 25- to 50-mile rides, the longest
taking them on Ona-Fort Green Road to Ona, then to onto Goose Pond Road and Lily
and Limestone before returning home. In all, that's 50 miles, he says. It takes, depend-
ing on wind and will, three to three and a quarter hours to complete that circuit.
Most animals walk and run on their toes, but a bear puts its whole foot firmly on the
ground with each step. That may be why it seems to be dragging its feet.

THE BELOVED

Beloved thou in times foregone
Still doth remain a heart loved so,
No resting place for thoughts alone
Where thou art not, ...life's ceaseless flow

In morning's light thy face to see
Early rising, thou stayest me
Throughout day's light thy shadow nears
Steps in oneness,faint whispers hear

What of night, ...filled in dreams they be
How close thou art in mind ...so free
Laughter's sorrows, life's inward fee
All joy, all life,,all... still... with thee.

COURTESY PHOTO
North Wauchula Elementary School's business partner, Mosaic Four Corners Mine,
recently showed its support of the fourth-grade students who were working hard*to
prepare for the writing portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.
Through the coordination of Mary Ann Harrell, Mosaic provided $400 in recess equip-
ment for the 71 youngsters taking the test. Teacher Sheri Himrod said, "Our students
have worked very hard getting ready. They deserve a break, and it is great to have the
support of our partners who really understand the needs of our children." The equip-
ment included footballs, soccer balls, flying discs, board games and other items well
suited for playground use. Pictured unpacking the goodies are (front, from left) Nelsa
Sigin and Gloigans Metayer; (back) Himrod and Principal Tracey Nix.

History: 1890s News Items


The following articles have been edited
by Spessard Stone of Wauchula from the
Florida Times-Union and Courier-
Informant of the 1890s. Stone also pres-
ents a personal note to readers regarding
one of the figures from this historical
perspective, John Lucas:
In my county history, in regard the
imprisonment of John Lucas for killing
Dempsey D. Crews Jr. in 1895), I wrote,
"The disposition of Lucas' case is unde-
termined, but he may have escaped from
jail." I concluded correctly that in
November 1897, Lucas was killed.
The following newspaper article,
however, shows Lucas was tried and
found not guilty of Crews' murder.
Crews was, of course, from Crewsville.

Temperance In DeSoto/Citizens Are
Combining To Fight The Saloons
Wauchula, June 9, 1895-Several cit-
izens of DeSoto county, consisting of
democrats, populists, republicans, law-
yers, merchants, farmers, etc., members
of the several different local temperance
associations, assembled at. the court-
house, at Arcadia May 30 aid organized
a county association, with Rev. S.B.
Carson, president;-C.J. Carlton, secre-
tary; W.C. Hayman, treasurer; and Rev.
T. J. Sparkman, chairman executive
committee.
Strong temperance speeches were
made by Rev. C.I. Nash, M.S. Stevens
and S.B. Carson, Mr. M.G. Carlton, Prof.
M.L. Williams, et al.
The association passed very binding
resolutions, in which it pledged itself to
support no man for office or preferment
who does not boldly oppose intemper-
ance.
The ladies of Arcadia clearly proved
their minds on temperance by their pres-
ence at the meeting and the serving of a
sumptuous public dinner.
The minds of all present seemed to
run in the same channel, as each officer
was elected and every resolution passed
without a dissenting vote..

Crews Killed By Lucas
Arcadia, June 11, 1895- The latest
report about the Crews killing is that
John Lucas claimed that Crews knew
where his hogs were and if he did not tell
him, he would kill him, and Crews' son
got hold of Lucas' gun, but Lucas got it
away from him and as he did so Crews
shot him and he fell saying he was killed,
but he was only stunned and Crews was
walking off when Lucas raised up and
shot Crews dead.
Lucas is reported not badly hurt.
People in that neighborhood are highly
worked up over it and lynching is feared.
The sheriff has Lucas heavily guarded
to keep, him from being lynched. The
sheriff was to have been in here with
Lucas this afternoon, but has not yet
come and it is feared a lynching took
place.


Various reports are out and as Crews-
ville is 21 miles northeast of here and in
the country, no true account can be had.

Items
Fort Ogden, July 18, 1895-The
phosphate railroad is now nearly com-
pleted from Arcadia to Liverpool.
The county commissioners have
ordered an election in August to deter-
mine whether the county will be wet or
dry.
DeSoto County Goes Dry
Arcadia, Aug. 28, 1895-DeSoto
county held a wet and dry election yes-
terday. All the principals have been
heard from and only 10 wet votes were
cast, the county going dry by an over-
whelming majority.
Arcadia did not cast a single wet vote.
The county has many temperance clubs
with people that are determined to put
down all "blind tigers" that may spring
up.
Arcadia has had a bad name and the
moral element are opening their eyes and
are determined to redeem the town's
good name.

Lucas And Holmes Free
Arcadia. Nov. 7, 1895-Circuit court,
opened here last week. A great many
minor cases were disposed of during the
week and on Saturday W.H. Lucas, the
man that killed Dempsey D. Crews, was
tried. The jury returned a verdict of justi-
fiable homicide.
One Albritton was sent up for two
years for larceny of a hog.
Monday the case of William W.
Holmes, who was indicted by the last
grand jury as an accomplice in the mur-
der of John Haygood, who was killed in
the saloon here last Christmas, was tried.
The jury was out only a few minutes,
when it returned a verdict of not guilty.
This case has been anxiously waited for,
as Mr. Holmes wanted to get it settled, as
he knew that he could and would be
exonerated.
Everybody was satisfied the case
would end as it did. Mr. Holmes is a pop-
ular young man, and all his friends are
glad that he was entirely exonerated.
The judge complimented the jury on
not being long in making up a verdict.

A Murderer Murdered
Nov. 24, 1897-.John Lucas, who is
well known to this county, and who it
will be remembered, shot and killed
Dempsey Crews, of DeSoto county,
about a year ago, and afterwards killed
Jim North, who was an outlaw, charged
with having murdered Bud Sauls, was,
according to reports, himself cut literally
to pieces by one Dennis Sheridan, on last
Saturday (Nov. 20) afternoon at
Langford's ranch about 35 miles up the
river from Fort Myers. Sheridan, it will
be remembered, killed EQ. Crawford
some years ago.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF PERMIT REVISION
The Department of Environmental Protection gives Notice of a Permit Revision [PA File
Nos. FL0037958-014-IWB/MR] to add 10,876 acres of property to the existing footprint of-
the South Fort Meade Mine to incorporate the mining of mineral reserves located within
Hardee County at Mosaic Fertilizers, L.L.C.'s South Fort Meade Mine [mailing address:
Post Office Box 2000, Mulberry 33860-1100].
The facility is located at 5880 Manley Road, Fort Meade in.Polk County, Florida and
geographically at:


Latitude: 270 39' 59" N


Longitude: 81" 45' 32" W


The application and permit revision is available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at
the Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation,
Phosphate Management Program, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, Florida
33637-0926. Phone (813) 632-7600, extension 158 or 138 for an appointment.
The Department will issue the permit unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all parties
reach a written agreement on mediation as an alternative remedy under section 120.573
before the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing
mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information
set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request
enlargement of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request
must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of
the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the
notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the
Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of
receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for
enlargement of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding
initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon
the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based
must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address,
ai{ teleihit'ne number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the Department
permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter Or activity
is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department
action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification
of the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that
the petitioner wants the Department to take.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from
the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to
become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue
mediation. The election maj be accomplished by filing with the Department a
mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a
hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404.
Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Ottice
of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a
petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a
hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to
mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes, for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless
otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of
the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by
such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without
settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the
administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines
that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under
those two statutes.

This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a petition (or request for mediation) is filed in accordance with the above. Upbn
the timely filing of a petition (or request for mediation) this order will not be effective
until further order of the Department.
Any party to the order has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section
120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of
General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable
filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be
filed within 30 days from the date when the final order is filed with the Clerk of the
Department. 2:25c
