PHOTO BY DAN WAGNER/SARASOTA HERALD-TRIBUNE
A significant archaeological discovery has been made on a 700-acre ranch along Charlie Creek south of State Road
66 in rural Zolfo Springs. Property owner Bill Harrison, a Sarasota lawyer, was walking his ranch after a heavy August
rain when he spotted sometho.'q unusual and took photos of what he found, e-mailing them to the University of
Florida, which confirmed he had discovered part of the shoulder girdle of an extinct mammoth. Excavation of the site
began on Oct. 18. Harrison will donate the Columbian mammoth skeleton, the second such major find in Southwest
Florida, to the Florida Museum of Natural History. Here, paleontologist Dr. Richard Hulbert notes that In 30 years of
fossil recovery, this is the first full mammoth skeleton he has unearthed. Harrison has granted this newspaper a tour
of the site in mid-December. Watch for full details of this important historical find at that time.

Expels


Boy, 15

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 15-year-old boy who
shoved a school official over
the dress code has become the
first expulsion of the 2010-11
academic year.
The boy, a ninth grader at
Hardee Senior High School,
also was criminally charged
with misdemeanor battery.
The expulsion came follow-
ing a recent hearing before the
Hardee County School Board.
Neither the boy nor his parents
chose to attend.
Board members were told
that on Sept. 17. the student was
approached because he had vio-
lated the school's dress code.
The boy, however, became defi-
ant. He allegedly resisted both
the dean of students and the
school resource officer.
He incurred the criminal
charge after he allegedly
pushed Dep. Maria Hall.
Schools Superintendent Da-
vid Durastanti recommended
expulsion for the boy.

Crews grew up in Avon Park
but has lived in Hardee County
for 43 years. Even though the
ways of the cowboy have begun
to fade away, Crews still
believes in those old ways.
The tales Crews will tell will
be about his own experiences as
a cowboy. along with stories
stemming from things he has
read. The stories will focus on
what Florida and Hardee Coun-
ty were like in the past, when
cowboys were not so hard to
find.
"You don't see many cow-
boys anymore. Just like you
don't see the old ways," Crews
said.

what cowboys do. some of the
techniques cowboys use, how a
cowboy gathers his cattle and
other interesting facts. This pro-
gram also is meant to help edu-
cate and cause people to
become more interested in their
heritage.
"I'm hoping that by holding
this, people will become more
interested in the history of
Hardee County," Lang, who
organized the event, said.
"If people do wish to find out
more information about Amer-
ican cowboys, Florida cowboys
or the history of Hardee County,
this is the perfect place to find
out that type of material," she
said in inviting county residents
to attend the free program.


Murder
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Bowling Green police have
successfully identified the vic-
tim of a Halloween murder in
their city.
The man was Wilmer Alex-
ander Martinez-Romero, 30
years old, of Honduras.
Capt. Brett Dowden said
once a positive identification
was made, the victim's family
was notified of his death.
Now, he said, the Bowling
Green Police Department is
working with the Honduran
Consulate in Miami and the
Medical Examiner's Office iri
Lakeland to return the man's
remains to his family.
"We're working to get their
loved one home," Dowden said.
Martinez-Romero was beaten
to death with a blunt instrument
at about 9:30 on the night of
Oct. 31. His body was discov-
ered at roughly 9 o'clock the
next morning, hidden in a

Nov. 10 is the birthday anniversary of the U.S. Marine Corps,
reminds Gary Delatorre, who served in the Marines.
The Marines were founded in 1775 at the Tun Tavern in
Philadelphia and were then called the Continental Marines. Herald-
Advocate production superintendent Ralph Harrison is also a
Marine.
For several years there has been talk of trying to get an inter-
national cargo airport in northwestern Hardee County. So far-
nothing.
That meant Hardee was never in the running for the Boeing
southeastern U.S. project, which was snagged by South Carolina at
Charleston International Airport.
South Carolina offered Boeing $170 million in grants and tax
breaks. Boeing plans to invest $750 million to create 3,800 jobs for
its new 787 Dreamliner Final Assembly Plant, expected to open in
mid-2011 with product delivery in early 2012.

Sweetbay in Wauchula will have its 3rd Annual Taste of the
Holidays Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m. There will be a wide variety of
foods to sample.
The Faith Presbyterian Church in Wauchula will celebrate its
100th anniversary Nov. 13-14. The celebration begins at 4 p.m.
Saturday at the East Campus at Popash and Griffin Roads with a
cookout supper at 6 p.m.
Church services at North 7th Ave. will be 10 a.m. Sunday
School and 11 a.m. morning worship with lunch at the Fellowship
Hall. RSVP to Belva Vance at 773-4740. The pastor is Brook
Larrison. See ad elsewhere this issue for more details.
China's portion of the U.S. trade deficit has grown to 75 per-
cent, wrote Industry Week magazine editorin-chief Steve Minter
in the November 2010 issue. He says that America needs to
increase its manufacturing base.
Republicans made big gains in the 2010 elections, but
Democrats still hold the White House and U.S. Senate majority. In
Florida and Hardee, Republicans rule.
Creators syndicated columnist Froma Harrop recently wrote
"the Democrats led America back from the brink of economic dis-
aster."
In his new book "Decision Points" former President George
W. Bush said bailouts of the banking system likely prevented the
second Great Depression and that he regreted handing over an eco-
nomic mess to President Barack Obama and that weapons of mass
destruction-the stated reason for going to war there-were not
found in Iraq.
The Hardee High Wildcats and coaching staff are to be con-
gratulated for three straight wins after a 0-6 start, defeating DeSoto
)4-12 and making the state playoffs as district runner-up.
This Friday the Wildcats host Lakewood Ranch. The playoffs
will then begin at Tampa Jesuit.
The Florida Gators are also on a winning streak after mid-sea-
son trouble and on Saturday will host Steve Spurrier's South
Carolina Gamecocks for the SEC east title. Florida is favored by a
touchdown.
Spurrier had a great run as a Gator football player and head
football coach, winning the Heisman Trophy, numerous SEC titles
(Florida's first ever), and a national title (Florida's first).

The Florida Wildlife Federation is trying to get 700,000 voter
signatures to place a Florida oil drilling ban on the ballot in 2012
as'a constitutional amendment.
This ban would apply to state waters-10 miles iqto the Gulf
of Mexico and 3 miles into the Atlantic Ocean.
S The Florida House of Representatives in 2009 voted to allow
oil drilling in state waters but the Senate did not vote. The FWF
says Florida's economy depends on clean beaches and shores for
recreation and tourism and cannot afford the risk of oil drilling in
Florida waters.
The FWF cited the BP Deepwater Horison oil disaster in April
of this year. This ballot iniative sounds like a good idea.
The Florida Wildlife Federation reports two of the 11 species
of skunks live in Florida-the Eastern Spotted Skunk and the
Striped Skunk.
The FWF also reports raccoons live in all lower 48 states and
are regarded as predators of sea turtle nests. Car accidents are the

of sources, such as barley,
legumes and many fruits.
According to the National Cho-

increasing consumption of solu-
ble fiber by 5 to 10 grams a day
can decrease LDL cholesterol
about five percent. The pro-

aiming for a total of at least 5 to
10 grams of soluble fiber daily,
and preferably 10 to 25 grams a
day. So if two or three bowls of
oatmeal is unrealistic for you,
you could reach the overall tar-
get by combining options. For
example, you get 2 grams of
soluble fiber'from each 1/2 cup

Finally, the FWF says 3 of the 16 species of hummingbirds are
found in Florida-ruby-throated and some rufous and black-
chinned hummingbirds. Worldwide there are 338 known species of
hummingbirds, which can fly backward, upward, upside down, for-
ward and can hover. They cannot soar. Unique wing and shoulder
designs allows this versatility, which would make the Wright
Brothers proud.
Donnell Mathews, Ret. Col. USAF of Melbourne, a native of
Hardee County, recently sent this note:
"Really enjoyed reading the recent write up about Annie Bell
and the Pioneer Restaurant. A few months ago we had a physician
and wife from California visiting and we drove them down to
Hardee County to see the farms and citrus groves. Had a delicious
lunch at the Pioneer and as we walked out the physician comment-
ed, 'the sleeper on that menu is the rice and tomato gravy.' My
favorite meal consists of the fried mullet, swamp cabbage, and the
rice and tomato gravy."
Edward Farmer of Bowling Green recently wrote:
"I don't know about other voting places, but in Precinct 2 in
Bowling Green you have to guess what you mark! It was cloudy
and dark in the room with no light over the voting booths. The
room had overhead lights but over the booths it was dark."
"My wife could not see the ballot, so she voted on about half
of what she could see. I held it up three or four times. This should
be corrected or we will just skip it next voting day." Farmer said his
wife has cataracts.
At the Nov. 1 Hardee Chamber of Commerce annual meeting,
Ronnie Durrance, manager of Hardee Ranch Supply, was honored

A: The best research linking
oatmeal consumption and cho-

about 10 mg/dl in LDL ("bad")
cholesterol with a daily serving
of 3/4 cup of quick or old-fash-
ioned oats as measured before

according to the label, starts
with a half-cup of oats, so the
3/4 cup would be one-and-a-

Following completion of his
sentence, Fuentes will be held
for possible deportation by the
Immigration & Naturalization
Service.
According to Maj. Randy
Dey of the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, the crime was,
first investigated by then-chief'
Jose Ventura of what was the
Zolfo Springs Police Depart-
ment. Sheriff's Det. Manuel
Martinez, however, assisted in
that investigation and in its
eventual conclusion.
Dey said that the alleged
molestation was brought to
light as the mother and child
were watching the "Oprah" talk
show on television when the 9-
year-old began to cry. The show
that day, he said, was about
child molesters.
The mother asked the girl


Q: A lot of recipes using
slow cookers look very
healthy. Can I follow the
recipes without the special
pot?
A: Slow cookers allow you
to combine and refrigerate in-
gredients in the pot the night
before (or in the morning), put
the pot on to cook in the morn-
ing and not worry too much
about exactly when you get
back for the meal at the end of
the day. You can create similar
moist, slow-cooked dishes in a
large pot like a Dutch oven over
low heat on the stove or in the
oven, but they'll cook in an
hour or two and can't be safely
left cooking unattended. You
can pretty easily adapt slow-
cooker recipes for soups and
most other dishes to stovetop
use. Stew preparation often in-
volves browning some chopped
vegetables and perhaps a little
chicken or meat, and then


what was wrong, and the child
began to describe two incidents
of molestation that had taken
place at her grandmother's
house.
The little girl told authorities
the first time it happened was
on Thanksgiving Day in 2008.
The second time was in June of
2009, Dey relayed.
Both times, she said, the man
inappropriately touched and
rubbed her.
The child was afraid of
Fuentes and also scared she
would make her grandmother
angry, she told adults in
explaining why she did-not tellT
anyone of the abuse at the time.
It was not until the Feb. 8 tel-
evision show this year that the
little girl revealed what had
happened to her, said Dey.
Fuentes was charged and
jailed.


adding liquid and remaining
ingredients. Braising means
that you slowly simmer the
food in just enough liquid to go
no more than about halfway up
the sides, so food cooks by both
steam and liquid heat, resulting
in a slightly different flavor
than when food is completely
submerged as in a soup or stew.
These kinds of dishes mean you
need the pan to be heavy
enough to hold an even temper-
ature and to have a lid tight
enough to hold in steam and fla-
vor. You simply need to keep
watch to maintain a gentle sim-
mer without losing too much
liquid. Place a piece of alu-
minum foil over the pot and
underneath the lid if needed for
a tighter seal. Include plenty of
vegetables for good nutrition;
onions, carrots, winter squash,
fennel and mushrooms hold up
well and add great flavor.

Helicopters hovered over-

It was all part of routine sur-

Drug Task Force. The target?
Marijuana fields.
Though most of these illegal
cultivation operations have
moved indoors, as shown by the
large number of recent grow-
house discoveries and arrests,
flyovers are still conducted and
trained detectives still search
the ground for clandestine mar-
ijuana plots.
The Drug Task Force, which

Hardee County Sheriff's Office
and the Wauchula Police De-
partment, joins with the Florida
National Guard for these regu-
lar surveillance operations.

Before returning to any

This time, the major said, the
helicopter flew for three days.
The detectives in the sky were
joined in the search by a ground
support team, he said.
"Most of the county was cov-
ered," Dey added.
And officers did spot mari-
juana from the air.
"We found 20 plants growing
in a wooded area behind the
Tractor Supply store," Dey
described. "There was a water-
ing system and they were well-
cared for."
Further, Dey noted the mari-
juana plants "were close to har-
vest."
Officers pulled up the illegal
plants and processed the entire
operation for fingerprints, in
hopes of identifying the felo-
nious farmer.
The seized narcotic has been
taken into evidence at the
Sheriff's Office, he said.
No charges have been filed as

'Weepiest Thou?'
Weepiest thou me? Weepiest thou but a day
Shed tears like rivers flowing ... then gone
Like morning's dew sparkling in brightest rays
Glistening the moments, then vanishing the dawn.
Let honeysuckle permeate senses
Breathing fresh anew life's vast abundance
Choosing brightest flowers, spirits rising ...
Petals wafting bluest skies' redundancies.
Laughter's flight to mountain heights atmosphere
Beyond highest ridges and trees that cling
Beyond the clearest, bluing stratosphere
Beyond fairytales... .'Little wings that sing.'
Weepiest thou?
Weepiest not! 'Laugh Life's Delights'
1 will hear... 'Laughing Thee'. .
T . in brightest 'Light!' f

Accounting Jobs On The Rise, -


Despite
Despite a slow job market,
there is encouraging news for
college graduates. Students
with degrees in specialized.
fields, such as accounting, con-
tinue to find success as the
demand for professionals in
these areas continues to
increase.
According to the U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics, there are
now more than five job seekers
for every available job opening.
These numbers, paired with sta-
tistics from CareerBuilder and
Monster.com, which predict
that less than half of employers
plan to hire recent grads, only
makes fields seeing substantial
growth: like accounting, more
attractive to career-minded de-
gree seekers.
That's why more college stu-
dents are considering schools
that offer accounting programs
that address the needs of the
business community head-on.
Many schools are even choos-
ing to expand their accounting
programs, like Rasmussen Col-
lege, a regionally accredited in-
stitution specializing in high-
career-growth degrees. Finan-
cial accounting, tax, interna-
tional accounting, auditing, and
accounting information systems
are among some of the fastest-
growing areas in the field.
"The economic downturn has
opened the door for growth in
the accounting industry, giving
graduates with degrees in this
field a clear advantage in the
job market," says Tamryn Hen-
nessy, the national director of
career development at Ras-
mussen College. "As regulators
are tightening their scrutiny on
company finances across the
board, there is urgency in the
industry for the most up-to-date
accounting candidates."
Projections from the U.S.
Bureau of Labor Statistics show
that employment in the ac-
counting field is expected to
grow 22 percent between 2008


Slow Job Market


and 2018, resulting in more
than 270.000 new jobs. Specific
fields expected to see some of
the largest employment oppor-
tunities in the coming years
include:
Forensic Accounting-The
need for forensic accountants
continues to increase as techno-
logical advancements allow
white-collar criminals to
become more sophisticated in
their crimes. Forensic account-
ants work as investigators to
detect fraudulent activity within
a company.
Financial Accounting-
Businesses rely on proper book-
keeping to stay viable. The day-
to-day work performed by


financial accountants is vital to
helping business leaders make
sound economic decisions.
Career centers, mentoring
programs, and resume-writing
classes are among the addition-
al resources that colleges are
offering students to help further
ensure their success within
these fast-growing fields.

2010 WRCA Ranch Rodeo-The Final Chapter
This is the last column on the Working Ranch Cowboys
Association 2010 "Best of the Ranches" ranch rodeo held on Labor
Day weekend at the Arcadia Rodeo Grounds, so the final two teams
that get coverage are the SMR/CJ Cattle team and the Lykes
Bros./Rumar team.
As I mentioned in an earlier column, the team and contestant
qualifications for the WRCA ranch rodeos differ from those used
by the Florida Cattlemen's Association, as there are ranch rodeos in
various states, the winners of which go to the annual WRCA World
Championship Ranch Rodeo in Amarillo, Texas, in November of
each year. Some of the teams will be a double name (as the two
being covered this week).
The WRCA rules define a "working ranch" as "any ranch that
has at least a 300 head cow/calf operation or runs at least 750 year-
lings for a minimum of six months of the year." There are require-
ments as to full-time employees versus day workers, and a strict
limit of no more than two day workers per team. "
That means that some of the Florida ranches have to pair up
with each other to get the required number of 4-6 qualifying con-
testants. (I would like to mention that in the prior columns, I over-
looked the fact that Audubon Ranch was really "Audubon Ranch/-
Belflower Cattle" for the "Best of the Ranches" event-my apolo-
gies for that.)
CJ Cattle is the Fussell family of Arcadia, headed up by Jimmy
and Tamme Miller Fussell, with sons Jamie and Corey and nephew
Robert. However, very few women rode in this event (so Tamme
got a break), and Jamie was unable to attend. The SMR (Schroeder
Manatee Ranch) part of the name was Jason McKendree and Stevie
Johns from Bradenton. All of them ride in the FCA ranch rodeos on
a regular basis.
I was unable to hear most of the times on Saturday night, but
this team completed the team sorting event in 49.84 seconds-dad
Jimmy is real good at this event. (Any'time under 50 seconds for.
any of these events is good, with times in the 30-seconds being the
winners.) However, the wild cow milking event time for this team
was way over one minute-Corey said how much he disliked try-

ANGELS ON EARTH
ARE GOD'S
MESSENGERS AT WORK
Angels come in many forms, from
helpful animals to mysterious strangers,
from glorious heavenly angels to earth angels,
those human beings who generously assist others.
Angels come to us in dreams, on a breeze, or in a
strain of music. When they appear, they are
surrounded by profound mystery and radiate
life-affirming hope.
The family of Lola Sapp thanks all of the
selfless, giving earth angels at the Hardee Manor
Nursing Home. Momma was a resident of Hardee
Manor from 2001 until October, 22, 2010. When
she came to Hardee Manor, we had been told that
she would only be with us for a short time. Within
a short time, the earth angels at Hardee Manor
had her walking, talking, and laughing once
again. They truly made her last years on earth
happy and peaceful. They kept her comfortable
and allowed her to maintain her dignity.
We are very grateful for all that was done for
Momma. We also extend an extra special thank
you blessing to Gena Rogers of Hardee Manor, a
true angel on earth.

ing to rope these Florida Cracker wild cows!
The three boys (Jamie, Corey and Robert) fight over who gets
the bronc riding event, so I understand they have a rotating system,
and this one was Corey's rotation. The broncs were that great stock
from D.R. Daniels of Okeechobee, and Corey's ride was something
to watch, garnering him a respectable score of 71 points (remem-
ber, the winner was only at 80 points). After the eight seconds of
bronc riding, Corey's mount took off (as they often do), but this
time the pickup men had a very difficult time catching him. He
must have raced around that large arena at least 2-3 times, finally
being snagged by pickup man Elton Langford.
The Lykes Bros./Rumar team is made up of Donald Murphy,
who is the son of Stephanie Cochran of Bowling Green, his uncle,
Kyle Miller, along with Fred Griffin, Justin Tomlinson, Travis
Brown and Chad Carter. Like Tamme, Donald's wife, Roxanne, got
a break, as she rides with them in the FCA ranch rodeos.
This team had a tough day, receiving no times for the team
doctoring and team sorting events. In the team doctoring, they
roped the back legs before the head, so it is considered an illegal
catch, and disqualifies them from receiving a time. But they placed
second in the bronc riding with a great score of 77.
So, until next Labor Day weekend, we bid adieu to the WRCA
and look forward to the "Best of the Ranches" in 2011. But never
fear, the Florida Cattlemen's Association ranch rodeos will be start-
ing up right after the new year!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.

Light One Candle
By Stephanie Raha
The Christophers


REMEMBER THOSE WHO SERVE THEIR COUNTRY
Veterans Day used to be more of a stirring occasion than it is
today, and that's too bad.
S We still have the ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery
that honors those who died for their country, of course, and some
towns still hold parades to pay tribute to the men and women who
have served the colors. But sometimes those in the line of march
outnumber the people who turn up to watch.
You can find reasons for that without looking too hard.
Robert M. Gates, the secretary of defense, pointed to some of
them a few weeks ago when he spoke of the growing disconnec
between military service and the country at large. "For a growing
number of Americans," he said, "service in the military, no matter
how laudable, has become something for other people to do."
And there are those who don't think that serving in the mili
tary is laudable at all.
Consider the colleges, 'for example, that have barred the
Reserve Officer Training Corps. That's particularly true of so-
called "elite" institutions such as Harvard and Columbia.
Gates said that while those coming home from service in Irac
and Afghanistan are still being treated warmly, "for most Ameri
cans the wars remain an abstraction-a distant and unpleasan
series of news items that do not affect them personally."
Some, tragically, are affected very personally.
They are the families and friends of those young people dying
every day in those wars; those who will never become "veterans'
because they have given their lives for their country while serving
on active duty.
Let's keep them in our hearts and hold them in our prayers'this
Veterans Day.

rNutrition
Wise
KAREN COLLINS, MS, RD, CDN
AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR
CANCER RESEARCH
C L,
S Q: Can diet affect cancer
risk by changing body pH?
A: The term pH is a measure
s of acidity or alkalinity. A num-
ber of books and supplement
S advertisements suggest that a
e "body pH" that is too high or
Stood low can be responsible for
S cancer, diabetes, lack of energy
and overweight. Following the
recommended diet or taking the
f supplement being advertised
t supposedly can keep your pH
right. However, no solid
r research supports such claims.
There is no single measure of
"body pH," because our blood,
mouth, urine and stomach all
S differ in acidity somewhat.
Food choices may affect the pH
of the urine, though research is
not consistent even on that.
Although it's true that our body
needs to maintain its pH within
a relatively narrow range, we
have many intricate body sys-
tems to take care of it without
any effort on our part. Unless
someone has kidney disease
that prevents their system of
S acid-base regulation from
working, you can forget about
S body pH. Ipstead, concentrate
on the food choices that signifi-
cantly lower cancer risk, such
as eating plenty of vegetables
and fruits that help with weight
control and offer many protec-
tive nutrients, phytochemicals
and fiber.
Q: When recommendations
about exercise refer to METs,
what does that mean?
A: METs (also known as
metabolic equivalents) measure
the intensity of any kind of
physical activity. Moderate
activity, such as walking at
three or four miles per hour,
water aerobics or general gar-
dening, is defined as 3.0 to 5.9
METs by the 2008 Physical
Activity Guidelines for
Americans. Vigorous activity,
such as race-walking or jog-
ging at least five miles per hour
or heavy gardening in which
you feel your heart rate
increase, is defined as 6.0 or
greater METs. These guidelines
say adults should accumulate at
least two-and-a-half-hours of
moderate activity each week;
similar benefits can also come
from 75 minutes a week of vig-
orous activity. For some people,
activity defined on these scales
as moderate may be so difficult
that it is really vigorous activity,
or may even be physically
impossible. For them, basing
their activity goals on other
scales of intensity is recom-
mended. Their physician or a
certified fitness professional
can teach them to judge intensi-
ty based on their heart rate. The
federal guidelines note that peo-
ple can also judge intensity sim-
ply by how it feels to them.
Moderate activity feels like 5 or
6 on a scale of 0 (sitting) to 10
(highest effort possible); vigor-
ous activity feels like 7 to 8 on
that scale. Inactive, unfit adults
should not do relatively vigor-
ous activity when they first start
to become active. People with-
out diagnosed diabetes, heart
conditions or arthritis and with-
out dizziness, chest pain or joint
pain do not need to consult a
doctor to begin increasing
activity. Others should see their
doctor so they can get cleared
for the right activity for them.


The Reasons We Eat
Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN, American Institute for Cancer Research


Classifying the influences on
our eating habits is the subject
of two recent studies of two
very different groups. One
study focuses on overweight,
low-income, recently post-par-
tum U.S. women, the other on
middle-aged European women.-
The categories identified in
these studies are also all sup-
ported by research in a wide
range of populations and pro-
vide a useful structure to help
us evaluate our eating habits
and identify specific targets for
attention.
Convenience (easy access to
prepared food and snacks) was
a top link to overweight in the
U.S. study, and numerous stud-
ies demonstrate that access to
food has a profound influence
on our eating. For example,
when a dish of candy is on
someone's desk, he or she eats
more than when a lid hides the
candy or when it is on a nearby
surface that requires getting up
to get the candy.
You can make food less read-
ily available by keeping serving
bowls of food off the table, stor-
ing sweets in cabinets rather
than out on counters or tables
and limiting the amount of
high-calorie processed snack
foods you bring home. Break
habits of automatically buying
cookies or snacks when you
stop at convenience stores,
stand in the grocery checkout
lane or stop for coffee. Choose
restaurants that offer reasonable
portions and healthy options
rather than all-you-can-eat-buf-
fets.
Emotional eating, a major
link to overweight and overeat-
ing in both recent studies,
includes eating when sad,
bored, restless or anxious. In
yet another study those who
said they were most likely to eat
in response to emotions and
least confident about being able


to control this eating were over
13 times more likely to be over-
weight or obese than those who
reported the least emotional eat-
ing and most confidence about
control over it.
Some research suggests eat-
ing in response to negative
emotions can be a comfort, a
way of "swallowing" feelings
instead of expressing them or a
distraction from worries seem-
ingly too great to handle.
Depending on the type and
degree of difficulty people have
with this, they might read about
or take classes in problem-solv-
ing or stress-avoidance, work
with a registered dietitian
trained to include coping skills
or seek referral to a mental
health professional.
Inappropriate Restraint was a
third major factor tied to excess
weight in both of these recent
studies of women and weight.
Restraint seems to have two dif-
ferent faces, since it has been
linked with lower calorie con-
sumption and lower weight, but
also with weight gain and over-
weight. The European study of
middle-aged women, adds
important insight by differenti-
ating between the two types of
restraint. Rigid restraint in-
volves strict eating rules and a
downside that it may promote
binge eating once you break a
rule. It was linked with greater
short-term weight loss, but after
two years was unrelated to
weight. However, flexible re-
straint, a habit of moderate self-
regulation and compensation
for occasional high-calorie
choices, was one of the
strongest predictors of weight
loss at two years.
To encourage flexible re-
straint while avoiding over-
rigid rules, experts urge us to
create stable eating habits to
meet nutritional and hunger
needs without fostering a sense


'Hoofin' It Off


Main' Is Saturday


By MESQUA FIELDS
For The Herald-Advocate
Picture this: You're in a lus-
cious, green pasture. There's a
small creek a few yards off to
the right and just beyond that a
mysterious forest. Everything is
so beautiful, and then?
The sound of a piercing whis-
tle jolts you in your saddle.
You are part of the "Hoofin'
It Off Main" inaugural trail ride
fund raiser.
Rather than adhere to the tra-
ditional fundraiser formula,
Jessica Newman, Main Street
Wauchula Inc.'s director and
Community Redevelopment
Agency coordinator, decided to
try something different. Hence,
the first-time trail ride.
Newman wanted a new "fun
way to raise money for
Wauchula Main Street," she
explained. The Main Street pro-
gram has been revitalizing
downtown Wauchula to better
the community, and Hardee
County as a whole, ever since
1997.
The "Inaugural Trail Ride"
fundraiser will be held this
Saturday beginning at 9 a.m.


Directions to the location of the
ride are on the registration
form, available at the Main
Street office or online on its
Web site.
Registrations will be accept-
ed up to the time of the event,
and include lunch and a com-
memorative T-shirt.
During sign-in, light refresh-
ments will provided as riders
browse a silent auction. The
refreshments and snacks
include coffee, juice, fruit and
doughnuts. During the ride,
there will be water and fruit.
The ride will last three hours
and finish at lunch, which also
is provided.
All the proceeds will benefit
Main Street Wauchula Inc.
Horses will not be supplied,
so riders must bring their own
horses.
"It should be a lot of fun,"
said Newman.
Registration forms can be
picked up at Newman's office,
located on 107 E. Main St. in
downtown Wauchula. The
forms also are available on the
Web site www.mainstreet-
wauchula.com.


of deprivation. The Center for
Mindful Eating recommends
mindful eating that honors our
food and our body's hunger sig-
nals, portions that make sense
and attitudes free of depriving
rules and unrealistic expecta-
tions.
A fourth major influence on
weight in the study of middle-
aged women-confidence in
one's ability to continue healthy
physical activity-reminds us
that weight control involves
more than our eating habits.
Factors other than those listed
here, such as norms in your
*friends and family, undoubtedly
influence eating choices, too.
But these three factors provide
a good start in finding one or
more influences likely to ilay
an important role in your efforts
to eat healthfully.

Q: Are tonic and club soda
good low-sugar alternatives to
regular soft drinks and sweet-
ened mixers?
A: Club soda is a zero-calo-
rie, zero-sugar beverage. How-
ever, tonic is not. Even though
it does not taste very sweet, 12
ounces of tonic-with 124 calo-
ries and 32 grams of sugar (8
teaspoons)-is only slightly
lower in sugar's empty calories
than regular soft drinks, which
may contain from 135 to 150
calories in the same portion.
And choosing tonic saves noth-
ing compared to sweet mixers
like Collins mix. The big calo-
rie savings with these drinks
would be drinking your tonic
with just a squirt of lime or
lemon and omitting the alcohol.
If you're really trying to avoid
concentrated sugar and calories,
stick with club soda, unsweet-
ened seltzer and sparkling water
options.

begin in emotion is not art.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE DEVELOPMENT


THANK YOU HARDEE COUNTY

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for
all of the help and support you've given me
during my campaign for School Board. Words
cannot express the sense of satisfaction and
S" accomplishment that I feel.

There were so many people across Hardee
County that reached out to me in big and small
ways that were a tremendous help. I will not
attempt to call names but you know who you
are and what you did to help with the campaign.
I was uplifted by your words of encouragement,
financial support, placing signs in your yard, making telephone calls to
your neighbors, and yes, standing on the corner of Wauchula State Bank
and Walmart during our "Honk and Wave."
While we did not prevail at the election we certainly ran a good and
positive race: one that the people of Hardee County can be proud, one
that is encouraging to our youth, one that will encourage others to get
Involved and lastly one that will hopefully encourage our School Board
members to think outside of the box and work hard for all of the children
pf our County.
Let me close by giving a big thank you to everyone at Ace Hardware and
to my family who was my greatest source of support, inspiration and con-
structive criticism on the campaign trail. I love and appreciate you all.

opiLry the best, 6



POLITICAL ADVERTISEMENT PAID FOR AND APPROVED BY GARRY MCWHORTER FOR SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 4








12A The Herald-Advocate. November 11, 2010


The secret to a flat belly:
Headlines abound claiming that
specific foods, nutrients, sup-
plements and exercises some-
how selectively melt away the
beer bellies and "muffin tops"
that spill over our pants.
Waistline fat includes the
pinchable fat deposited just
under the skin and "visceral fat"
that nestles deep around
abdominal organs and seems
most strongly related to risk of
heart disease, diabetes and can-
cer. Many fat-fighting claims
lack research support, but some
offer reasonable strategies.
Some studies show that peo-
ple who eat more whole grains
are more likely to have a
healthy weight and waistline
than those with diets high in
refined grains. Studies also link
eating patterns that include
more refined grains (like white
bread) with greater yearly
increases in weight and waist.
Replacing refined grains and
sweets with whole grains could
lead to smaller surges in blood
sugar and reduced insulin lev-
els. In theory, lower insulin lev-
els could shift metabolic pro-
cesses to favor fat burning
instead of fat storage, but there
isn't research to support the
claim.
Whole grains clearly bring
health benefits, but simply
switching the type of carbohy-
drate without decreasing calorie
consumption may not lead to
the loss of belly fat headlines
suggest. However, along with
reduced calorie consumption,
favoring whole grains over
refined grains may support a
flatter belly. Obese men and
women who cut about 500 calo-
ries per day lost an average of
10 pounds in a 12-week Penn
State study. Those who ate
exclusively whole grains lost
more than twice the abdominal
fat of those assigned to eat only
refined grains.
With no change in diet, a


Duke University study of over-
weight adults illustrates the
'power of exercise. Non-exercis-
ers increased visceral fat by 9%
in six months. Those who
walked about three hours or
jogged two hours a week held
abdominal fat levels steady.
Jogging about three hours a
week decreased both visceral
and surface abdominal fat. In
this study, participants lost
abdominal fat regardless of
exercise intensity, so an hour's
walk six days a week might also
produce this fat loss, though
that was not tested here. In
another study participants
reduced their daily calories by
400 and did either 30 minutes
of vigorous or 60 minutes of
moderate activity three times
weekly. After five months, peo-
ple averaged a 26-pound loss,
including a 25 to 27 percent
drop in visceral fat; use of mod-
erate versus vigorous exercise
didn't affect results.
Studies also support belly-
flattening benefits from
strength training (such as resist-
ance training with weights or
elastic bands). In one study,
overweight post-menopausal
women decreased their waist
size by an average of one inch
after four months of resistance
training. Other research shows
that resistance training can
decrease both deep and surface
abdominal fat. Spot exercises
like sit-ups and crunches are
important to tighten abdominal
muscles, but they can't selec-
tively burn up abdominal fat.
Are there extra tricks to help
banish belly fat? For most sup-
plements, research is either too
limited, shows no effect or actu-
ally identifies dangers. Yet cate-
chin phytochemicals (such as
EGCG) in green tea may
increase fat burning and
decrease abdominal fat, at least
when added to decreased calo-
rie consumption or increased
activity. Studies adding daily


EGCG, found in 4 to 12 ounces
of brewed green tea, have
shown drops of about three-
quarters to one inch in waist or
about seven percent in abdomi-
nal fat in three months, yet
results are inconsistent. Pro-
ducts from drink mixes to vita-
min supplements may indicate
they contain green tea or EGCG
yet have only a trace.
Conversely, consuming large
amounts of tea can lead to
unhealthy amounts of caffeine
that may over-stimulate you or
interact with medications. We
need more research to clarify
exactly how much belly-flatten-
ing power this strategy can
have. Meanwhile, for most peo-
ple, there's no harm in adding a
cup or two of green tea per day,
especially if you use it to
replace a high calorie, sugar-
sweetened drink.

Q: Do stevia sweeteners offer
any special advantage beyond
being natural?
A: Stevia, now approved by
the FDA for use as a sweetener,
is currently available in several
brands. Since it's 200 to 300
times sweeter than sugar, it is
essentially calorie-free in the
amounts used. Keep in mind
that "natural" on food labels has
no legal definition. No research
identifies any clinical advan-
tage over other zero-calorie
sweeteners. Like the others, it
does not raise blood-sugar and it
seems that it does not promote
dental cavities. Substituting
sweeteners like this for a single
teaspoon of sugar only saves 16
calories, but in foods or drinks
with larger amounts of sugar,
stevia and other zero-calorie
sweeteners can make a signifi-
cant calorie difference over
time.


Q: Does chamomile tea
really have special benefits?
A: For thousands of years,
people have consumed chamo-
mile tea for its health benefits,
though little human research
validates the effects with which
people often associate it. It is
commonly used for sleepless-
ness and anxiety; some studies
suggest it may have a mild
sedative effect, but there is little
clinical proof. Some people use
it for upset stomach, gas and
diarrhea, but research offers no
proof of benefit for these prob-
lems either. Studies in animals
show that flavonoid compounds
in chamomile can kill bacteria
and viruses, and reduce inflam-
mation, and test tube studies
show chamomile extract may
promote self-destruction of can-
cer cells, but we don't have
clinical trials to prove these
effects in humans. Some people


drink or wash their mouth with
chamomile tea to prevent or
treat mouth ulcers resulting
from chemotherapy. However,
limited clinical trials show con-
flicting results of its effective-
ness. The bottom line is that
chamomile tea has not been
well studied in people, so there
is little evidence to support its
use for any condition. On the
other hand, especially consider-
ing its long history of use, there
is little reason to avoid use.
However, chamomile is in the
Compositae family (such as
ragweed, chrysanthemums,
marigolds and daisies) so peo-
ple who have allergies to these
plants should be aware of po-
tential reactions to chamomile.
If you take warfarin or other
blood thinner medications, dis-
cuss with your physician, since
chamomile may decrease clot-
ting abilities through its cou-
marin content.

many sib-
lings did you have?
A:. Eight, but one died.
Q: Was it normal for people to have
such large families?
A: Yep. There were eight in my mama
and daddy's, too. We needed a lot of
kids to spread out the farm work.
Q: You were born when we were at
war. Were any of your relatives in the
war?
A: My Uncle Aubrey was in World War
II.
Q: Do you remember how difficult
the war was on people?
A: We had ration stamps when I was a
baby, and I actually still have some. At
5 years old I weighed only 28 pounds.
Q: Did you go to school?
A: Yes, but there wasn't a kindergarten.
Q: How old were you when you start-
ed school?
A: Seven years old.
Q: What was your transportation
back and forth to school, if any?
A: Back then we had to walk eight
miles there and back.
Q: Did your school have more than
one room?
A: There were two grades in each class-
room in grades one through eight, but I
stayed in first grade for three years.


Q: How many students would you say
were in one room?
A: I'd say anywhere from 28 to 32.
Q: How did being together with
younger and older students affect
your learning?
A: I was behind, but I worked at school
and as well at home.
Q: Did you finish or quit school?
A: I finished sixth grade and quit after-
wards at 16.
Q: What were the reasons for quit-
ting school?
A: I had so much work, I couldn't study
my lessons.
Q: What did you do once you were
out of school?

in school I would milk 20 cows before
school, but I kept doing it even after I
quit. But I started milking more a little
later on.
Q: When did you move out?
A: In '57, so I was 17 years old.
Q: Was it necessary to have a license
when you started driving?
A: I never drove on the road until I got

guess it just depended on the job.
Q: What were your reasons for leav-
ing your home state?
A: I was looking for work.
Q: What states did you live in other
than your home state?
A: I lived in Florida and Georgia.

food or did you rely on stores?
A: I worked a garden, but we still


Swimming Ends At


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It was a cold experience at
regionals last weekend.
The half dozen Hardee partic-
ipants in the Class IA Region 2
meet in Fort Pierce faced not
only dozens of opponents, but
extremely cool weather.
Seniors Kate Krause and
Hunter Henderson, joined by
sophs Wyatt Kofke and Camp-
bell Aubry, and freshmen Car-
leigh Coleman and Emily
Rhodes, had to try to ignore the
weather in Indian River County
and go about their jobs.
Krause participated in both
the 50 and 100 free. She didn't
improve her time in either of
her events in the frigid weather.
Henderson, who had injured an
ankle during the week, was
unable to lower his time in the
50 free and couldn't participate
in the 500 free because of his
injury.
"I wish I could have made her
and Hunter's last meet a little
warmer. We will miss them next
year and wish them the very


best," said Head Coach Jan
Brutus.
Kofke, swimming in both the
200 individual medley and 100
back stroke, placed 24th in both
events, unable to lower his
seeded times.
Aubry placed eighth in div-
ing, finishing with 290.90
points.
Both freshman girls, howev-
er, had success in lowering their
times. Coleman dropped her
500 free time from the seeded
7:05.76 all the way to 7:01.80,
placing 22nd overall. Rhodes
lowered her time in the 100 but-
terfly, seeded at 1:24.53,but fin-
ishing at 1:22.88 to also place
22nd. "If they continue to pro-
gress like this, I can see them
setting us some new school
records. I look forward to more
regional and state meets in the
next three years," said Brutus.
Expected back next season
are juniors Savannah Hagans,
Emma Marshall, Jessica Hunt
and Allie Yeomans; sophs
Kofke, Aubry. Will Crawford,
Willie Godwin. Kyle Schrank,


bought from stores.
Q: What did you grow and what
kinds of animals did you have?
A: Well, I was a sharecropper, and the
main animals I had were cows.
Q: What kinds of jobs did you have?
A: I farmed, drove trucks, did the milk
route, worked at a shirt factory, delivery
boy for a furniture company, worked as
a janitor in a hospital in the morgue, did
repair work on houses and worked at
Wellcraft.
Q: What was your last job and how
long did it last?
A: My last job was at Wellcraft, making
boats, and I kept working until I could-
n't.
Q: Why did you stop working?
A: I got sick and was unable to continue
working.

Korin Roehm, Leah Weeks,
Coleman and Rhodes.
Graduating and going on to
other activities are Krause,
Henderson, Kalan Royal, Josh
Fuentes, Michael Forrester,
Brian Hagans, Michelle Olivar
and April Garland.
"The season is behind us, but
Melissa (assistant coach Me-
lissa Crider) and I are looking
forward to working with the
swimmers and divers again next
season. We are still in need of
female divers. If anyone is
interested, please see one of us.
We appreciated all the parents
who supported their athletes
during those early 6 a.m. work-
outs. Many of the students
depended on their parents to get
them to the pool that early. We
also appreciate all the snacks
and meals you helped put to-
gether for districts and our
home meet," concluded Brutus.

Changes Career To Nursing


Veronica Schultz Ricca, for-
merly of Wauchula, has left her
military career to pursue a pas-
sion for nursing.
She graduated from Delaware
Technical & Community Col-
lege in May with a degree as a
registered nurse. She is current-
ly employed as a cardiovascular
intensive-care unit nurse in
Dover, Del.
Her career change was pro-
mpted one night while stationed
in Iraq. She was serving at a
location in the heart of the
country and in the heat of battle
when she felt the call. She
described the incident in a
career choice paper submitted
to the University of Delaware,
stating as follows:
"I arrived at my duty station
as an aircraft mechanic when I
heard a loud blast a short dis-
tance away. A rocket blast had
hit my fellow soldiers' tent: I
ran to the medical tent next
door to help prepare for the
incoming wounded.
"The med techs, nurses and
doctors worked side-by-side in
harmony. This team saved
every life that could be saved.
Every person that was in pain
was relieved. Every need was
met.
"All the while, I was scared
for my own life. I worried about
whether or not I would see my
children ever again, and yet,
somehow, I was able to gather


the strength from within to give
back to these soldiers at the
most crucial point of their exis-
tence.
"That night I watched a man
cry for his children just before
his death. I listened to another
grieve for his watch partner,
and I helped another pray for
the use of his legs. It was the
most emotional night of my life.
"It was then that the seed was
planted within me to want to do
more for others in the special
way that only nurses can. Even
though it was impossible to
save every life that night, I
came to understand and, more
importantly, accept death as a
part of life. I felt at peace know-
ing that each life that we lost
that night belonged to a soldier
who had someone next to them
that cared, someone who did
not let them die alone.
"I knew this kind of care, this
kind of compassion was my
calling," she concluded.
Schultz Ricca is the daughter
of Dan and Sue Prohaska of

Following her graduation,
she, her husband and children
Chris, Alex and Gavin enjoyed
a weekend trip to Manhattan

Lions Club and Lionette members collected donations from the public recently during
White Cane Days.

Lions Club BBQ Set For Nov. 19


The Wauchula Lions Club
received a great deal of support
from Hardee County residents
during its recent White Cane
Days fund raiser.
The club collected over 18
pairs of glasses along with
monetary donations from peo-
ple shopping at Winn-Dixie in
Wauchula.
The funds will be used to
help provide eye exams and
glasses for qualified individuals
who cannot afford them. The
glasses that were collected will
go to a central facility, where
they are cleaned and the pre-
scriptions are identified. Then,
Lions send the glasses out to
people around the United States
and the world who need them.
The Wauchula Lions Club
also appreciates the Lionettes
for all of their hard work at this
event. You may ask what is a
Lionette? Lionettes started in
1970 at Hlardee Senior High
School in partnership with the
Wauchula Lions Club. The
Lionette Club is made up most-
ly of female members, with sev-


eral male members who earn
the title of "club sweethearts."
The high-school Lionettes
have always helped beautify the
high school campus with a nice
flowerbed, have painted Senior
Cat Paws for the past seven
years in the school commons
and have always served at com-
munity events in many capaci-
ties.
The Lionettes can be counted
on by the Wauchula Lions Club
to be in service, and have
served with the club during
Pioneer Park Days, the Lions
Day BBQ and at vision screen-
ings. The Lionettes are what is
right with Hardee County
young people. The individuals
in Lionettes are role models to
those around them. The
Wauchula Loins Club is very
proud of the association with
this high-school service club.
Keep your eyes open for
Lions Club BBQ tickets that are
now on sale. Dinners can be
picked up at Friday Night Live
on Nov. 19.
This annual fundraiser for the


Wauchula Lions Club makes it
possible for the club to provide
vision services, scholarships
and community support. Re-
member that each ticket is also
good for one of many prizes
that will be given away and
announced Nov. 19 during the
"Wauchula Idol" Friday Night
Live. You do not have to be
present to win, but if you are
not there you will miss one on
the greatest nights of the year. A
ticket gives you the opportunity
to win a flat-screen TV donated
by CF Industries, an iPad donat-
ed by State Farm Insurance, or
an iPhone donated by Albritton
Insurance.
If you have used eyeglasses
that you would like to donate,
you can bring them to this event
or you can bring them to
Hardee County Title Insurance
Agency at 111 E. Main St. and
ask for Julie Watson.

Thank You!
I would like to thank the 2,436 registered voters who voted for
me in the recent general election. I am honored and appreciative
of each vote.

Campaigning and visiting with my fellow citizens over the past 8
months has been an awesome experience. I certainly did not
need to renew my faith in Hardee County-I've always had it!
After all, this county has given so much to me and my family for
several generations.

Although I will be unable to serve as your Commissioner, my
devotion will always be to Hardee County. I wish the current
Commissioners Godspeed as they make decisions which will
chart the course for our future.

With special thanks,

Why should you buy candles at Old Pine?
Let us give you just a few simple reasons!
"The Scent is Super Strong!
Our Secret: We double the industry standard of fragrance oil. Ever wonder
why the 'name Irand' candles lose their scent after just a few burns?
It's because they are not scented all the way through. Our candles are
scented from top to bottom so they will smell amazing from start to finish
SNo Nasty Jars from Soot
Our Secret: We rigorously test each frragrance until it is wicked
perfectly. Of course, customers must burn them properly after purchase.
* Made from the Best Quality Ingredients on the Market
Our Secret: We refuse to cut corners to save a buck! We could make them
from cheaper wax and materials, but that's just not our style!

If you haven't tried an Old Pine candle, come
on in and let us make a believer out of you!soc ,I,:,

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...

75 YEARS AGO
The city fathers met in their
chambers at City Hall on
Monday evening. The Phi Delta
Fraternity of this city, one of the
first in the state, was given per-
mission to use the club house in
Avalon Park. The council grant-
ed Mr. M.T. Oxford permission
to remove certain oak trees
from his property at the corner
of East Main Street and Third
Avenue.

Hunter Flowers, widely-
known wildcat and bear hunter,
brought down a huge Florida
panther near his home in the
iSweetwater section on Friday
with a single shot to the head. It
was tied to the front of his
Kinzie Waldron's car and
brought to town, where it tipped
the scales at 123 pounds and
six-and-one-half feet long.

Colorful merriment and gai-
ety reigned at the Lions' annual
Hallowe'en party at the munici-
pal ball park last Thursday
night as a record-breaking
crowd of about 2,000 people,
three-quarters of them children,
attended the affair.

The newest manufactured
Hardee County product is vine-
gar in bulk, manufactured in the
warehouse of Wauchula
Wholesale Co. It is already on


the market, being on sale in 50-
gallon yellow barrels at all
home-owned grocery stores in
Hardee County. The next time
you buy vinegar, call for
Hardee County's vinegar in the
yellow barrels.

50 YEARS AGO
Hardee County went
Republican Tuesday for the first
time in 32 years, joining the
state as a whole in bucking the
Democratic tide which swept
Sen. John F. Kennedy into the
White House. The county gave
Vice President Richard Nixon a
margin of 200 votes as it went
into the Republican column
nationally for the first time
since 1928, when Herbert
Hoover defeated Al Smith.

Ground will be broken on
Monday for the construction of
the county's new $55,555 pub-
lic health center in Wauchula on
the northeast corner of the
Courthouse Square. Lee
Hanchey, chairman (, the
Board of County Commission-
ers, and Dr. E.J. McLaughlin,
director of the county public
health unit, will turn the first
spade of dirt.

More than 250 county resi-
dents who depend on the
McDonald & Olliff sectionizing
plant in Wauchula for winter
employment are going to find
themselves out of a job this
year. The company announced
it will not open the plant this
citrus season or in the future,
blaming high city electric and
sewer rates. City officials have

countered s ith veed hints that
the city is being made the goat
for a company decision based
on the scarcity of grapefruit this
year.

Slaughter Motor Sales has
slashed prices on used vehicles.
A 1958 Ford Fairlane 500
loaded and with air condition-
ing is $1.195; a cream puff
1946 Ford sedan of one owner,
with just 53,000 miles, is $295;
a 1957 four-door station wagon,
fully equipped with only 30,000
miles, is $1,195.

25 YEARS AGO
Orange prices have taken a
nose dive this year compared to
last year. Fresh fruit, which
brought $7 to $8 a box last year,
is down to $4 and $5 this year.
Fruit for concentrate, which
brought $1.75 a pound solids
last year with some going to
$1.80, is down to $1 a pound
solids this year. The only good
outlook for this year's crop is
higher production.

November 11, 2010, The Herald-Advocate 5B


Week ending November 7, 2010
WEATHER SUMMARY
WEATHER CROP
Weather Summary: Cooler temperatures entered Florida
within the past week with many locations receiving rain. Over 50
percent of the Florida Automated Weather Network stations report-
ed an inch or more of rain. However, the Fire Danger Index
remainedd high in the Big Bend area. Temperatures during the past
week were four degrees or less below normal temperatures. Highs
were in the 80s and lows were mostly in the 30s and 40s. The tem-
peratures dipped to 29 degrees at Quincy on November 6.
Field Crops: Recent rains within the past week did not com-
pletely relieve drought conditions. Planting of cool season forage
Swas delayed due to low soil moisture. Patchy frost was reported in
the Panhandle. Harvesting of rice, soybeans, cotton, and peanuts
was coming closer to an end in most areas. This week, peanut har-
vesting was 97 percent complete, above last year's percentage of
86 percent, and the five-year average of 92 percent. Late-planted
peanuts are left to be harvested. Sugarcane harvesting was under-
way with all four mills active.

Vegetables: Producers continued to plant and prepare veg-
etable fields for the winter season. In the southern region, vegeta-
bles were reported in good condition with limited pest or disease.
Vegetable harvest increased seasonally. In the Hastings area, some
cabbage was in the ground with additional planting scheduled. Also
within the tri-county area, potato fields were prepped. Light har-
vesting of sweet corn began. Vegetables that moved through the
market were cucumbers, eggplant, okra, bell peppers, squash, and
tomatoes.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, pasture condition ranged
from fair to good as seasonal, cool weekend temperatures slowed
forage growth. In the Panhandle, pasture condition ranged from
very poor to excellent with most in poor to fair condition. Planting
of small grains for winter forage picked up in many locations fol-
lowing light rain. Forage already planted has been growing slowly
because of the cold temperatures. Grass in some areas was burned
by the weekend frost. Most of the cattle ranged from fair to good
condition. Cattle producers were feeding supplement hay. In the
northern areas, pasture condition ranged from poor to good with
most in fair condition. The condition of the cattle ranged from poor
to excellent with most in fair condition. Some open and cull cattle
were sold this past week to reduce winter feeding expenses. In the
central areas, pasture ranged from very poor to excellent with most
in fair condition. Planting of cool season forage had been on hold
due to low soil moisture. The cattle condition ranged from very
poor to fair. In the southwestern areas, pasture condition ranged
.from fair to excellent with most in good condition as rain freshened
up pastures in many locations. The condition of the cattle ranged
from poor to excellent with most in good condition. Statewide, the
condition of the cattle ranged from very poor to excellent with most
in good condition.
Citrus: Highs were in the 80s, with early morning lows rang-
ing from the lower 30s to the mid 40s, as a cold front at the end of
Ithe week brought cooler temperatures and welcomed precipitation.
:Rainfall increased significantly, with 22 of the 25 stations record-
ing more than a half inch of rain. Kenansville received the most
precipitation with 2.71 inches. Fort Pierce and Citra tied for the
least, both recording 0.38 inches. Overall, there were abnormally
dry conditions in all of the citrus area according to the U.S. drought
monitor, last updated on November 2. Indian River County is now
experiencing extreme drought conditions, while surrounding coun-
ties are experiencing severe conditions. Moderate to extreme
.drought conditions extend over a third of the citrus area. Thirty-
nine packinghouses and eight processors have opened, with a few
more scheduled to open soon. Cultural practices included herbicide
and fertilizer application, tree removal, and irrigation.



New Christmas Card

For Florida Crackers


Congratulations to the Hardee Wildcats, winner of perhaps the
most important game of the season, stealing a 14-12 victory at
DeSoto has week to become Class 2A, District 6 runner-up.
Immokalee, the only district squad to beat Hardee, albeit 36-34,
claimed the district championship by beating Estero. Hardee will
face undefeated Tampa Jesuit in Tampa in the regional quarterfinals
on Nov. 19.
Hardee plays at home this week against 4A Lakewood Ranch.
It is Senior Night. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and activities will begin
at 6 p.m.
Congratulations also to former Wildcat Jermaine King, who
reset the West Virginia State all-time yardage and receptions record
in last week's game even though the team lost. Also seeing good
action for their teams are Weston Palmer, defensive back at
Princeton and Eziah Youyoute at Georgia Southern.
The third congratulations are due the undefeated junior varsity
and junior high Wildcat squads in football and the undefeated
junior high softball team. Both junior high teams reign as
Heartland Conference champions.
Volleyball and cross country ended at the district level, while
swimming, and boys and girls golf went to the regional level before
bowing out.
Both soccer teams get going today (Thursday) against
Bradenton Southeast. Dennis Aubry is coaching the boys team,
while Nicole Aubry handles the girls squad. More information will
be available on their schedules and teams by the next issue.
The same for boys and girls basketball. Girls basketball starts
with a Nov. 6 varsity-only game at home at 6 p.m. against Walker.
Boys hoops start Nov. 23 at Lake Placid.
There hasn't been an announcement of the girls weightlifting
schedule as vet. They don't usually start until December.


Junior High basketball opens Dec. 1 at home against Lake
Placid. The girls play at 5:30 p.m. and boys immediately afterward.
That's the roundup of school sports. Youth football will have its
end-of-the season athletic/scholastic awards banquet on Dec. 9. It
will be catered by Texas Cattle Co. While players and cheerleaders
receive complimentary tickets, others cost $15 for adults and $7.50
for children. Tickets can be purchased today (Thursday) or next
Thursday at the Youth Football field house behind the old junior
high school. Table sponsorships, at $50, are still available..For
more information, call Donna Parks at 245-1579.
With the cooperation of Danny Weeks, building and grounds
supervisor and the Hardee County Commission, the four fields at
the new baseball complex at Hardee Park will be ready to start
Youth Baseball on March 1, with all teams playing then instead of
the little ones starting T-Ball and Minors so early. The girls will
move their softball games to Farr and George Heine fields.

That will leave those fields open for the possibility of a co-ed
kickball league, if there is enough interest. Anyone who wants to
play in it, should come to the concession stand at the Rec Complex
fields on Nov. 11 at 6 p.m. For questions, call Carl Coleman at 781-
9461.

Three of Hardee youth boxers from Omega Gym went to
matches last week. Abel Esquivel, 14, fighting at 132 in the 13-14
.division, lost a close contest on points. Arturo Ramirez, 14, was in
the 114-pound division for 13-14-year-olds and suffered the same
fate, losing on a third-round stoppage against a fighter who hasn't
lost a fight in two years of USA boxing.
Rigo Ramirez, 15, fought in the 138-pound division. He got a
bye the first day and fought for the championship the second day.
Both boxers came out strong in the first round, but his opponent
tired in the second and third rounds and Ramirez won the bout.
The younger two boxes, Abel and Arturo, will go to the state
Silver Gloves, but Rigo is now too old.
All three had taken a break from boxing, but got going again
recently, appreciating the help of gym trainer Daniel Lozano Sr. to
get them back in the ring.


Patrick Smith Online, the
official family website for
Florida author Patrick D. Smith,
last month introduced the sec-
ond release of their new line of
"Florida Cracker" Christmas
cards. The latest limited-edition
card released is titled
"Promised," and is taken direct-
ly from the pages of Smith's
award winning and treasured
book, "A Land Remembered."
"For the past several years,
our customers have asked us for
Cracker-themed Christmas
cards," said Smith's son, Rick,
who operates the family web.-
site and online store. "We
couldn't find any. when you do
a web search for cards about
Florida, you primarily get
beach scenes. When you do a
search based on pioneers, you
get mostly western scenes. So
last year we hired Esther
Morrison Smith, the artist who
drew the original cover of "A
Land Remembered," to draw a
scene based on the Floirda's
unique frontier past. It was such
a hit that we sold out, so we
were really encouraged again to
offer a new card design."


The scene on this year's card
is the Christmas frolic at Fort
Drum as portrayed in "A Land
Remembered," where Glenda
Turner suggests to the shy and
socially awkward Zech
MacIvey that they become
"promised." "I named this card
'Promised," continued Rick,
"partly because of the scene it
portrays of Zech and Glenda
becoming 'promised' but also
because when I was visiting my
father last March, when he was
ill and despondent, he requested
that I make a card from this
scene, and even sketched it out
so that I knew exactly how he
wanted it to look. I promised
him that I would do it, and now
it's a promise kept." Rick goes
on to say, "I am happy to report
that Dad's spirits and his physi-
cal health have improved since
then."
The message inside the card
is "Hoping your holidays are
filled with fun and frolic."
Smith says that these limited
edition cards are only available
at PatrickSmithOnline.com/-
ChristmasCard and a few select
gift shops throughout Florida.

Museum Musings
By Sandy Scott
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


A MORNING'S RESEARCH
Many times while researching items located within Cracker
Trail Museum, I leave home manned with pen, yellow tablet and
.the source from which research will be extracted and stop off at
Pioneer Restaurant for a couple cups of coffee before opening at 9
a.m.
This morning was no exception, and after arranging all of my
paperwork on the table before me, I continued with the research on
a particular item that I had been working on for about three days.
It was at this time that one of the customers asked me what it
was that I did at the museum and who came in, etc. My answer is
always pretty standard, usually ending with the number of students
who visit the museum annually. I had no sooner responded than
another patron chimed in, "Oh, she doesn't have to do anything.
She works for the county!"
A short time later, I finished my coffee, gathered my research
material and opened the museum at 8:45, beginning my day with
another research project and not thinking about the morning's com-
ment about my county job until a few hours later.
The morning's research began with an explanation of a paint-
ing on display of Chief Osceola. It was painted by Judge Farl
Collins, and is a reproduction of an original completed in 1838.
It was my desire to briefly describe who this chief was for


COURTESY PHOTO

and information.
those visiting the museum who had never heard of him. The
research started with my files that included a 119-page excerpt of
Canter Brown's book "Florida's Peace River Frontier'," which
detailed the Seminole Wars. The next part of the research took me
to the Internet, which included miscellaneous history of Osceola,
his obituary and pictures of his grave. The final research point took
me to Ancestry.com, a genealogy Web site that I use quite fre-
quently to assist visitors with their family research.
It was at this last research site that I was able to actually trace
William "Billy" (Osceola) Powell's lineage from his great-grand-
father, James McQueen, who was the earliest white man to trade
with the Creeks in Alabama in 1714, down to his grandmother, Ann


Copinger, and finally to her daughter, Polly, who was Osceola's
mother.
Young "Billy" moved with his mother, Polly, to Florida in
1814 along with other Creek Indians. In adulthood, he received his
name "Osceola," which was a combination of "asi," the ceremoni-
al black drink made from a type of holly, and "yahola" meaning cry
or crier.
In 1832, a few Seminole chiefs signed the Treaty of Payne's
Landing on the Oklawaha River, where they agreed to give up their
Florida lands in exchange for lands west of the Mississippi River.
Five of the more important of the Seminole chiefs refused to sign
the treaty. In retaliation, the Native American Indian agent, Wiley
Thompson, removed the chiefs from their positions and later forbid
the sale of guns and ammunition to the Seminoles.
Osceola, a young warrior, was particularly upset by the ban
and on Dec. 28, 1835, he and his followers ambushed and killed
Wiley Thompson and six others.
Osceola was captured and imprisoned at Fort Marion in St.
Augustine and liter moved to Fort Moultrie, S.C. It was here that
painter George Catlin met him and persuaded him to pose for two
paintings. Those paintings inspired a number of other prints, en-
gravings and even cigar-store figures. The original painting is
located at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington. D.C.
Less than three months after his capture, Chief Osceola died of
malaria and was buried with full military honors at Fort Moultrie.


The portrait at right is the late Judge Earl Collins' rendi-
tion of Chief Osceola.
The words "Osceola: Patriot and Warrior; Died at Fort Moultrie
January 30, 1838" are engraved atop the marble vault cover on
Osceola's gravesite, which is surrounded by an iron fence.
So, here I am at 1:10 on Tuesday afternoon. It has been four
hours since my actual research began this morning after opening
Cracker Trail Museum, and I find myself asking what I have
accomplished.
First, the hour spent prior to the 9 a.m. opening enabled the
completion of research started several days ago about a booklet
located in the museum on DeSoto County's Chautauqua of 1929.
Second, it acquainted me with a brief history as well as genealogi-
cal research of Chief Osceola. Third, a brief synopsis now accom-.
panics the reproduced painting provided to Cracker Trail Museum
by Judge Farl Collins many years ago. Fourth, a greater detailed
account of which historical data has been extracted has now been
bound and sits atop the glass case that is home to many other
Seminole artifacts and available to anyone who may be interested
in reading about this great patriot.
Fifth, because of this few hours of research, I have gained a
better knowledge of this Seminole warrior with the colorful
clothes, and therefore will be able to explain who lie was to the


300-plus third graders who visit the museum each year. And, final-
ly, it has given me the gratification that this "county job" is one that
may not keep me constantly busy with actual visitors to the muse-
um, but one that enables me to provide additional research data and
historical information to those entering the doors of Cracker Trail
Museum in addition to providing a small bit of Florida history to
our schoolchildren.
Won't you consider visiting Cracker Trail Museum to view the
new treasures we are always receiving? Collins was a gifted painter
and realized the importance of Florida history. And if you are inter-
ested in the types of tours Hardee County third graders receive,
contact us for the dates so you can visit as well.

Reducing Breast Cancer Risk:
Which Steps Are Best?
Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN, American Institute for Cancer Research


Since there are several types
of breast cancer, we shouldn't
be surprised at how challenging
jt is for researchers to identify
which steps can most effective-
ly reduce risk. Study results
vaTy about the impact of veg-
etables, fruits, whole grains,
total fat and different types of
fat. However, the American
Institute for Cancer Research
(AICR) recently published an
update to its 2007 expert report
looking at lifestyle and breast
cancer risk. This is the largest
review of research on this topic
ever conducted and has con-
firmed that weight control, reg-
ular physical activity and limi-
tation of alcohol are the founda-
tions of a lifestyle to lower
breast cancer risk.
A Healthy Weight
The landmark 2007 report
and now the update conclude
that overweight convincingly
increases risk of postmeno-
pausal breast cancer. As a
woman's body weight increases
so does her risk and excess
body fat at the waist may be
specifically tied to post-
menopausal breast cancer risk.
A 2009 review of research on
postmenopausal breast cancer
in the Journal of the National
Cancer Institute also identifies
weight control as one of the
most important steps to reduce
risk. Nine large population
studies linked adult weight gain
of 22 to 44 pounds with up to a
50 percent increase in risk, and
gains above that are linked with
a 45 to 87 percent increase in
risk.
Greater body fat seems to
increase body levels of estrogen
after menopause, which ex-
plains its link to estrogen-sensi-
tive breast cancer. Increased
body fat also leads to increased
levels of insulin and insulin-like
growth factors, increasing risk
of even estrogen-negative
breast cancer.
Physical Activity
The AICR report convincing-
ly links regular physical activi-
ty to lower risk of postmen-
opausal and probably of pre-
menopausal breast cancer as
well. In their analysis of multi-
pie studies researchers "found
that two hours of moderate
physical activity each week will
begin to decrease postmeno-
pausal breast cancer risk. The
JNCI review notes that in sever-
al large studies, women with the
highest physical activity levels
show 14 to 20 percent lower
breast cancer risk than those
least physically active.
Physical activity potentially
protects against breast cancer
through strengthening the im-
mune system as well as reduc-
ing levels of both reproductive
and insulin-related hormones,
and through its impact on
weight control. There is no
question that activity matters,
rather, the question is how
much' and what types provide


optimal protection. A minimum
of thirty minutes a day of mod-
erate activity is the current
overall health recommendation.
Limiting Alcohol
According to the AICR
report, limiting alcohol is the
step that most clearly reduces
risk of both pre- and post-
menopausal breast cancer.
Combined analysis of many
studies consistently shows a 5
to 10 percent increase in breast
cancer risk with each daily stan-
dard alcoholic drink. One such
drink equals 12 ounces of beer,
5 ounces of wine or one-and-a-
half ounces of 80-proof liquor.
One analysis in the JNCI
review showed that among
postmenopausal women, those
who drink alcohol show a
greater risk than those who
drink no alcohol.
Breastfeeding
One more step that clearly
reduces risk of pre- and post-
menopausal breast cancer:
breastfeeding. Beyond these
four links, the answers get
much less clear. The JNCI
review of research concludes
that women can reduce their
risk of postmenopausal breast
cancer with a low fat diet.
However, the AICR report
showed some indication that
total dietary fat may be associ-
ated with increased risk, but
more research is needed.
Plant-Based Diet
Eating plenty of vegetables,
fruits, whole grains and beans is
clearly recommended for over-
all health, but unless the low
.calorie content of these foods is
used to support a healthy
weight, research is inconsistent
about any direct breast cancer
protection. However, research-
ers are studying whether bene-
fits may vary with particular
foods or personal genetic differ-
ences.
The American Institute for
Cancer Research (AICR) is the
cancer charity that fosters
research on the relationship of
nutrition, physical activity and
weight management to cancer
risk, interprets the scientific lit-
erature and educates the public
about the results. It has con-
tributed more than $91 million
for innovative research con-
ducted at universities, hospitals
and research centers across the
country. AICR has published
two landmark reports that inter-
pret the accumulated research
in the field, and is committed to
a process of continuous review.
AICR also provides a wide
range of educational programs
to help millions of Americans
learn to make dietary changes
for lower cancer risk. Its award-
winning New American Plate
program is presented in
brochures, seminars and on its
website, www.aicr.org. AICR is
a member of the World Cancer
Research Fund International.

HEAVEN'S HELPERS-The Heaven Scent thrift shop now
has a convenient drop-off center for people wishing to donate sell-
able items to this ministry.
This new area, on U.S. 17 South at Orange Street in Wauchula,
is called The Mustard Seed. It was created because there is not
enough space for large items to be sold at Heaven Scent.
"Everything is to be dropped off at The Mustard Seed," min-
istry leader Sherry White said. "All of the donated items are
processed there. Then, we sell all of the smaller items at Heaven
Scent and the larger objects are sold at The Mustard Seed."
Any individuals wanting to donate to Heaven Scent can use
the new spacious, easily accessible drop-off center. They may also
call 773-9777 or 773-0877 to arrange a time for the pickup service
instead.
Those wishing to find out more may call 773-9777 or go

Wildcats In Playoffs;





Beat DeSoto 14-12


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats may be
3-6, but they won the most
important game of the season
on Friday night.
The Wildcats won at DeSoto
14-12 to go on to post-season
play on Nov. 19 as Class 2A
District 6 runner-up. All four
district opponents went into
Friday night's district competi-
tion with 1-1 records. Im-
mokalee, the only team to beat
Hardee, won its game against
'Estero and is district champion,
while Hardee's win over De-
Soto qualified the Wildcats for
the alternate playoff spot.
This week's Senior Night
game is against Lakewood
Ranth, an always tough team
and a good tune-up for post-
season quarterfinals. Gates
open at 5:30 p.m. and Senior
Night activities begin at 6.
"We will face a Lakewood
Ranch team this Friday who,
even though they aren't going
to the playoffs, are a very good
4A football team. Our goal this
week is to seize every opportu-

nity to get better.
"Our first-round playoff
game, we will travel to Tampa
Jesuit, which is undefeated and
they have been playing very
well. WE WELCOME THE
CHALLENGE!" said Head
Coach Buddy Martin.
"I am so proud of our foot-
ball team for the character and
heart that they have shown so
far this season. Through all the
adversity of starting the season
0-6 we never quit, and contin-
ued working to get better-over
the past five weeks that has
shown.
"Anytime we can go to
DeSoto and come home with a
win, we've got to be pleased. It
was a blessing for me to see the
excitement and joy on my play-
ers and coaches faces. It was an
outstanding game and a great
win for our football program
and our community.
"Again, I am so proud of my
team . but we're not finished
yet; the DeSoto game is over
with, and now we have to move
on to finish the season the best
we can and get better each day
in preparation for the playoffs,"
concluded Martin.
Against DeSoto last week,
the Bulldogs may have won on
the stat sheet, but Hardee pre-
vailed to win the game. DeSoto
dedicated its game to middle
school player Darryl Nicklow.
who has been diagnosed with
muscular dystrophy.
The Octavio Alvarez kickoff
to DeSoto went into the end
zone, getting the Bulldogs start-
ed at their 20-yard line. Senior
quarterback Isiah Bryant gained
five yards, promptly lost to a
penalty. Senior Antonio Rich-
ardson gained two yards, then
three more before being
stopped by Wildcat senior Tre'
Anderson. On fourth down.
Washington punted.
The ball only went 20 yards,
giving Hardee good field posi-
tion on the Bulldog side of the
field. Junior quarterback Colby
Baker went over left tackle on
the keeper for 21 yards to the
DeSoto 24. Senior Jarrius Lind-
sey went up the middle for five
yards, was injured and out for
the game. Junior Andrew
Hooks picked up the slack and
got a first down at the Bulldog
13.


Four more plays got Hardee
into the end zone. Baker,
Anderson, Hooks and freshman
Keyon Brown each took a turn,
with Brown going the last four
yards to score. The Alvarez PAT
kick was good. Hardee had a 7-
0 advantage halfway through
the first period.
On its next possession,
which began on its own 25-yard
line, DeSoto made slow pro-
gress, with a pair of penalties
slowing the Bulldogs down.
Finally Wildcat James Greene
sacked Bryant and Hardee took
over on downs. A 34-yard punt
gave the ball back to DeSoto in
the waning moments of the first
quarter:
With penalties, DeSoto took
16 plays to score, Brant passing
to Washington in the end zone
for a 3-yard TD. The Pedro
Ariciaga PAT was wide left.
Hardee still led 7-6.
In the final 4:34 of the first
half, the teams traded posses-
sions. An Alvarez 36-yard field
goal try at the 8-second mark
was short.
Hardee took the third-quarter
kickoff at its 35-yard line as the
kickoff had sailed out of
bounds. Baker, Anderson, Jake
Mayer and Hooks used nine
plays to move downfield.
Finally, Hooks took the pitch
left and ran untouched eight
yards to the end zone. The
Alvarez kick made it 14-6 five
minutes into the second half.
Alvarez again put his kickoff'
into the opponent's end zone.
After a one-yard gain, DeSoto
went five back on a penalty.
The teams traded kickoffs for
the rest of the period.
Early in the fourth quarter,
Bryant was sacked at the Bull-
dog 15. Washington then went
over left guard and kept run-
ning, 85 yards to score. A fake
PAT was called downed by the
holder, negating a two-point
conversion try. Hardee's lead
was 14-12.
The Wildcats' next drive was
stopped on an interception by
Bulldog Xavier Payne. DeSoto
used about five minutes in a
drive and ended up attempting a
37-yard punt for the go-ahead
score. It went wide left.
Hardee took over at its 20.
Anderson gained five yards on
a run over left guard. Brown


went- past the left tackle for a
first down at the DeSoto 32.
After a short Anderson gain,
Hooks went 15 yards to mid-
field and a first down.
After a couple of short gains
by Anderson, I lardee was look-
ing at a third and four. Anderson
went again and was stopped at
the DeSoto 40, six inches short
of a first down to keep the ball
for the final 1:30. Baker
sneaked ahead for two yards,
giving Hlardee the needed first
down.
DeSoto had no timeouts left.
Although twice penalized for
delay of game, H-ardee ran out
the clock, with Baker taking a
knee to end the game as lead
Coach Buddy Martin suffered a
Gatorade shower despite the
chilly weather.
The team gathered to receive
the Carlton trophy, longstand-
ing symbol of the oldest foot-
ball rivalry in the state.

JACK WEBB'S THANK YOU TO ALL HIS SUPPORTERS

I enjoyed my time campaigning, meeting old friends, and making new
ones. I wanted to continue helping the students get the best education
possible, but it wasn't meant to be. As we all know our will is not
always the same as the Lord's, and He obviously didn't want me to be
a School Board Member. I still havethe desire to serve our com-
munity, so time will tell what my next venture 'will be. Right now I'm
going to enjoy my retirement and do a little hunting and fishing.

Words cannot describe my heartfelt thanks to all my supporters. 1
hope I didn't let you down. I know a lot of my students and fellow
teachers went above and beyond to help me. My family supported me
as only a family can. A special thanks to Mrs. Zuniga and all those
who not only helped me personally, but kept me in their prayers
throughout this campaign. I will be forever indebted to all of you.

Following the election Thomas and I had a good conversation and I
feel confident that he will do a good job. He has my full support.

A man came down from the hills
all dressed up and carrying his
Bible. "Where are you going?"
asked a friend.
"I've been hearing about the
gambling, drinking, pretty girls,
and partying in Las Vegas," said
John, "and I'm going there to find
out about it."
"But why the Bible?" he asked.
"If it's as good as they say it is,"
answered John, "I'll stay over
Sunday and go to church."
Many of us "stay over" Sunday
after Sunday to hear the sermons,
but the Word of God goes in one
ear and out the other. We read
without responding and hear
without heeding.
But the Bible says, "Be ye doers
of the word, and not hearers only,
deceiving your own selves."

Bowling Green Elementary School's annual spaghetti dinner was a huge success.
Before the big day, the classrooms competed against each other to sell the most tick-
ets. The winning classroom, which will receive a pizza party, is Sierra Prescott's room.
And the two students who sold the most tickets are Jason Garcia and Justin Rivera,
both of Prescott's class.

It is important that students bring a certain ragamuffin, barefoot irrever-
ence to their studies; they are not here to worship what is known, but to
question it.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They saved the best for last.
A half dozen of the Hardee
cross country runners had per-
sonal best times in the District
meet last week.
The boys team was focused
on beating the only Heartland
team it had not conquered all
season. The 'Cats gathered
forces and. with four of the


seven Wildcats posting their
best times, took down the Lake
Placid Green Dragons
"The runners will now focus
on off-season training, with
some playing winter sports.
Many will start training for the
Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving
morning at the Hammock
(Highlands Hammock)." said
Coach Don Trew.
Over all the Hardee boys


For the week ended November 04, 2010

FALL'S AIRISHNESS
Summer... like an old grayish cat... long gone!
Fall breezes blowing, reviving my soul
World Series, College Championships, The Bowl!
Gas-electric heaters, black-burning coal!

Halloween, Thanks-Time, Christmas sights and bells
Music-jazzy stuff, no Sinatra, Bing
Plastic trees, hundreds of bulbs, coffee smells!
Food-food, toneless voices trying to sing...

Lights red-green, mistletoe climbing, turkeys... Gone!
Cold winds, colored leaves, snow's falling whiteness
Parties, candy-cakes, gifts, Fun... Schools Out... Done!
"Tis The Season, laughter's joy, Happiness...

The Children... the children ... Christmas awaits...
Quietness, sugar plum fairies, eyes peeping ...
Santa's Reindeer Flown... Bright Starts... The Child
sleeping...

Letter To The Editor

How To Have A Better World


Dear Editor,
Let us put an end to the war
in Iraq, etc. We would have 'a
unilateral peace agreement with
other nations that would make
the U.S.A. a free nation like it
used to be. This would end a lot
of suffering and strife and
bloodshed.
Let the U.S. return to the
Constitution and the Bill of
Rights.
More than one person in the
family cannot run for public
office. You should be a moral
person to run for public office.
We should have better gov-
ernment in all walks of life!
Why not have write-in candi-
dates like we used to have on


the ballot'?
Let us put an end to crime!
You cannot walk the streets at
night for fear of your life. It is
also dangerous on the streets
during the daylight hours. It
would help if there were more
lights on the roads.
There should be more jobs
for everyone.
If the computers fail to oper-
ate properly, why not return to
the manual system? There
could be 3 or 4 volunteers who
would write paychecks, etc. and
would return to the manual sys-
tem.
The cost of living is too high.
Mrs. Patricia McConnell
Sebring

We want to welcome every-
one back for another season of
fun and fulfilling activities.
The summer went very fast,
and unfortunately with the loss
of many of our residents and
our chapel pastor, Jim Williams.
We extend our sincere condo-
lences to the families. They will
all be very much missed.
Our eventful season started
off with a Halloween night of
fun, with a hay wagon of ghosts
and goblins, lighted with
orange and purple lights,' with
Alton Wilkerson as the driver of
the tractor. Three of Alton and
Stephanie's girls passed out 105
bags of candy to the residents.
The night was perfect with the
moon and stars shining bright
and beautiful, not too warm and
a nice breeze. We are kids at
heart!

COFFEE HOUR
Janet gave a big welcome
back to 82, and George DeSmet
led us'in the pledge and Janet
led the Lord's Prayer. Our first
coffee hour was organized by
Keith and Sheila Bannister and
volunteers, with many dough-
nuts consumed, coupons and a
Perkins pie raffled.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier was
our guest speaker. He gave us
some great tips and understand-
ing of how his staff works, and
is willing to help us in any way.
Please stop by anytime on a
Monday and have a doughnut
with us.
Our Community Building has
been given a new improvement.
We now have a carpeted stage,
on the top, sides and front,
which is a great improvement.
We also have new chairs in the
pool area, which was a greatly
appreciated addition. We have
newly painted cement all
around the Community
Building, which has really
refreshed the outside. We do
need to keep the golf carts
slowed down and off of that
area so we can keep it looking
refreshed.

EVENTS
Upcoming events are the
Welcome Back Picnic on Nov.
20 at 4:30, which we hope all


our residents will attend.
Our Thanksgiving Dinner is
Nov. 25 at 1. We have a great
way to celebrate: We all have a
table assigned, with those
bringing foods for just that
table. We then get trays of
turkey and gravy, which is fur-
nished by the Wilder Corp. and
prepared by various residents
for each table grouping.
We then have a Welcome
Back Dance with Tom Eldridge
to sing and entertain on Nov. 27
7.
Last but not least, we have
our Ice Cream Social on Nov.
28 at 5:45.
I hope all our residents come


I hope everyone had a great
summer, with good weather
after a not-so-great winter.
It was nice hearing from
everyone over the summer via
e-mail, although most of the
news was not that great. We
hope those still with some
health issues will be able to join
us soon.
There was a good turnout for
the eighth annual Crystal Lake
Reunion at Bass Lake, Ontario,
on Aug. 7.
Best wishes to everyone cele-
brating a birthday or anniver-
sary in November.

message. There were about
2.100 students and chaperones
in attendance and many deci-
sions were made, with three
from our church. They were all
ready for bed Saturday a.m., but
are ready to go again!
Everyone was happy to have
Lila and Leo Blink attend
church the past two Sundays.
He is still having problems but
was there with his oxygen tank.
Buck Toole was able to attend
Sunday. School and church last
Sunday. He is still under the
doctor's care.
John Deer had surgery last
week and is still under the
weather. Mary Parks had sur-
gery scheduled for this past
Monday. She is the mother of
Rita Allison. Beth Sasser had
foot surgery again on Wednes-
day. Charlton Sadler has a
heart cath scheduled for today
(Thursday). Dan Duke Sr. is
better but still not ready to jump
any high fences. Eddie Ken-
nedy is in Hardee Manor.
Christine Murdock is better but
taking chemo as is Mary Ruth
AlIred.
Please pray for all of these.
The young children put on a
skit entitled Operation Christ-
mas Child last Sunday morning.
Carol Brown directed the youth
and they presented a terrific
musical! The GA girls had the
solos but were joined by the RA
boys in the skit.
Our sympathy is extended to
the family of Ruth Alderman.
She passed away on Oct. 23.
Her daughter, Carolyn Alder-
man Skeen, called me last week
and said her mama subscribed
to The Herald-Advocate for
over 50 years. She said she
looked forward every week to


the paper, and loved to read the
Fort Green News and about her
old friends.
She said her mama and
Mildred Abbott Cooper grew up
together. Mrs. Ruth moved to
Lise Oak about four years ago.
which is where Carolyn and sis-
ter Bobbie Ruth Perry live.
They were able to visit and be
with their mama for the last
four years. Ruth Alderman will
be missed.
Ladies Night Out is Friday
beginning at 6:30. This is al-
ways a fun night.
Fort Green is having a sing
this Saturday. The Redemption
Quartet will be singing begin-
ning at 6 p.m. The admission is
free but they will take up a love
offering. You all are invited to
come on out to the country!
Pete and Patsy Hughes usually
support the sings at Fort Green
and they, like so many of us,
enjoy Southern Gospel music.
She won't be able to attend this
one, or 1 don't think she will. as
she is still receiving therapy for
her broken foot. Or that is what
I understand, but who knows,
she might come on crutches!
She will be missed if she is not
able to attend.
Sometimes I mention our
dog, Rascal, when he and I take
a walk but I bought him a new
toy the other day, the kind with-
out any filling but a squeaker.
He loved this toy and when
bedtime came, he would not get
under the covers, just set and
looked at the floor and his toy.
When I put it on the bed, he
grabbed it and took it under the
covers and slept with it! Now
who says dogs are not clever or
are they just human?
Brother A.O. Henry reported
his grandson should soon be on
his way home from Afghan-
istan. He just has to make it a
few more days and we ale all
praying for him.
It is always hard to get used
to the time change! Remember
to pray for one another and our
country.

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up.

Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi



When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?


Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with
the cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And
they worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and
shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses .
open. And it helped us make ends meet so we could support
our families.


Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick aroundVV Well, they did. The beaches
are clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting
a whole lot better. They are still here andhave said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.


Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If
you still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If
you're wondering what you can do, well the next time you're
shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.

Champions Again!


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High
School football team never tires
of it.
For the third consecutive sea-
son, the junior Wildcats have
claimed the Heartland Athletic
Conference Championship.
This is the second consecutive
season to go undefeated. This
year, they won their six games
by a combined 214-40.
Hardee won its season finale
at DeSoto Middle School last
Tuesday 34-8, using the re-
scheduled game, which had
been rained out-Sept.-28; -as a-
pivot. Both teams had unbeaten
5-0 records on the line and
Hardee took the game handily
on the opposing turf.
Eighth graders Keyonte Hol-
ley and Calvin McLeod took
game honors for the final game
of the sea son. Holley got the
offensive nod with 18 carries
for 183 yards and three touch-
downs. McLeod got the defen-
sive accolade, with a key fum-
ble recovery stopping a DeSoto
drive. Eighth grader Jerry
Browdy added eight carries for
94 yards and a 44-yard TD
reception. In all, Hardee had
299 yards on the run and 52 in
receptions for a 351 offensive
total.
DeSoto opened last week's
game with a kick return for a
touchdown, its only tally of the
game. With the two-point con-
version, DeSoto had a brief 8-0
lead.
Hardee came back quickly
for its own score. Holley had
one short run, but on the next


play broke loose for a 59-yard
TD run and capped it with the
two-point conversion run.
DeSoto drove downfield on
its next possession and got
inside the Wildcat 10 before a
fumble was' recovered by
McLeod as the first quarter was
coming to a close.
Hardee mounted a drive to
start the second period. Holley,
Browdy and eighth grade quar-
terback Andrew Valdez were
moving along when the 'Cats
stalled and turned the ball over
on downs.
That didn't last long, as sev-
.enth grader--Marco DeLeon
intercepted a DeSoto pass and
returned the ball 15 yards to
give Hardee good field posi-
tion. Browdy got eight yards,
and Holley took it the final 17
yards to pay dirt. The two-point
conversion came up short but
Hardee led 14-8.
After forcing a DeSoto punt,
there was still time enough for
another Wildcat score before
halftime. Holley picked up the
first 25 yards on a five-play
drive. Browdy shared toting
duties; Holley caught a 34-yard
pass and McLeod went the final
44 yards into the end zone.
Valdez passed to McLeod for
the two-point conversion and
Hardee had a 22-8 lead at half-
time.
Hardee used most of the third
quarter on a 5:59 drive, which
took 11 plays before Browdy
went the final three yards to
score. With the two-point con-
version, Hardee led 28-8.
After DeSoto went three-and-
out and punted, Hardee got an-


other drive going. Holley,
Browdy, a handoff to McLeod
for a pass to Valdez, and runs by
Holley and DeLeon got Hardee
close enough for an eight-yard
pass to Browdy, that left the
final score 34-8.
Along with Browdy, Holley,
McLeod and Valdez, other
eighth graders moving up to the
junior varsity level are Felipe
Aguilar, Christopher Arroyo,
Tyler Bragg, Patrick Carlton,
Tanor Durden, Tomas Gomez,
Jose Gonzales, Jordan Jones,

Occupy Commission


,...


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
How many RV visitors can
you have on your property, and
how many people are looking
for homebuyer education.
The answers to these and
other questions kept the Hardee
County Commission busy at its
last regular meeting for Com-
missioner Nick Timmerman
and Commissioner Bobby Ray
Smith, who were presented
plaques of appreciation at the
close of the meeting.
Newly elected commission-
ers Sue Birge and Grady
Johnson will take the seats of
Timmerman and Smith respec-
tively on Reorganization- Day,
8:30 a.m. on Nov. 16, shortly
before they, with other commis-.
sioners, leave for the three-day
meeting of the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties held in Nassau
County this year.
A discussion on recreational
vehicle provisions in the coun-
ty's Comprehensive Land Use
Plan and related Land Devel-
opment Code ended up taking
well over an hour. At issue was
the county's limitation on one
RV visitor to a residence for
two weeks only and a two-week
extension with the county man-
ager's approval.
Pioneer Village, a part of
Sherry White Ministries, want-
ed to place four RV hookups at
its agriculture adventure off
Alton Carlton -Road.. At least-
one neighbor objected, al-
though others seem to be in
favor or have no opposition.
There ensued a lengthy dis-
cussion by Mark White. Sherry
White, attorney Steven South-
well, county attorney Ken
Evers, director of planning and
development Kenny Denny and
zoning director Jerry Smith. It
covered local and state statutes
on what constituted an RV park
and a campground.
In the end, Commissioner
Minor Bryant made a motion to
amend the Land Development
Code to allow one visitor RV
for two weeks and extension in
all designations, R- R-2, R-3,
Farm-Residential and Agricul-
ture-I and to classify any use of
more than one RV on site as a
recreational campground which
can only'be approved by
Special Exception.
Southwell withdrew his
clients' administrative appeal
and the Whites will work with
the planning department and
zoning on how they can pro-
ceed in the interim.
The motion, seconded by
Timmerman. was approved on a
4-1 vote, with Commissioner
Dale Johnson .dissenting...Com-
missioners said they endorsed
the Sherry White ministry and


help it was to Hardee County.
-but hldno choice but to follow
the rules.
Janet Gilliard. director of
community development and
general services, presented
three requests to the-commis---
sion.
One was to approve a non-
refundable $25 registration fee
for the First Time Homebuyer
Education Workshop the staff
teaches regularly. The eight-
hour class has become popular
with banks and other lending,
institutions as well as a require-
ment for homebuyers under the
Homebuyer Program funded by
state and federal-grants. It has
gotten too large for the confer-
ence room and moved to com-
mission chambers, where desks
are set up for attendees.
Two members of the staff,
including Gilliaird tbok"the
two-year study to get the na-
tional certification necessary to
teach the class. No other county
has it, so people are coming
from the Heartland Consortium-
partner counties of Highlands,
Okeechobee, Glades, Hendry
and DeSoto, as well as Polk
County.
Gilliard said while they don't
mind teaching the program, the
cost of class materials runs
high. She suggested a cost of
$25 per couple, or housemates,
and felt the non-refundable reg-
istration would help with peo-
ple who sign up and don't
attend when materials have
been prepared for them.
In her other requests, Gilliard
got approval to apply for a
$750,00 Community Develop-
ment Housing Grant and- a
three-year $500,000 program
called Healthy Homes, which
targets improvements to bring
homes up to health and safety
standards, especially those with
children or elderly residents in
the home.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved a proclamation
of November as "National Hos-
pice and Palliative Care
Month." Becky Mclntyre, re-
gional director of Good Shep-
herd Hospice, says 4,000 resi-
dents of the area received serv-
ices .last year. The. agency.. has ..
served Hardee County for 30
years as well as all the sur-
rounding counties. They help
people remain in their homes
despite terminal illnesses.
-approved two actions re-
quested by Kevin Atchley,
county engineer and public
works director. One was a reso-
lution and agreement with the
state Department of Transpor-
tation. forthe use of some.2009...

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, can this season get any stranger? The
(ators with a win over South Carolina will be in Atlanta for the
SEC Title. Wouldn't a revenge win over LSU be just what the doc-
tor ordered for UF? The rout of Vanderbilt did give the coaching
staff a look at several players. Now, it is time to add to Spurrier's
fall in the Swamp for the Gators.
The USF Bulls head to Louisville to face Charlie Strong's
*Cardinals at Papa Johns Stadium. Both teams have 5 wins and the
winner is bowl eligible. Louisville has been playing well of late
and the weather can affect USF.
The Hardee Wildcats have made the playoffs! The win over
the arch-rival DeSoto' Bulldogs was a classic. 14-12 with all the
drama of missed field goals and running out the clock giving the
faithful some anxious moments before the celebration. This week
is Senior Night versus Lakewood Ranch.
In a very strange year. Oregon looks like the real deal. The
Ducks can put up 50 points per game, and they did after a slow
start. TCU flexed their muscles at Utah. Navy scored 75 on East
Car-olina. Do the Pirates have a defensive coach? Michigan and
Illinois had a combined 700-plus yards in the first half of their
triple overtime game. Who would have thought Alabama would
lose two games in 2010?
The Heisman race.looks to have the Auburn QB Cam Newton
in the lead. How his recent revelations come into play will be inter-
esting. My personal choice is Andrew Luck QB from Stanford. He
led Stanford to a 41-17 rout of ranked Arizona last night.
Former Hardee Wildcat wide receiver Jermaine King had 9
receptions for 124 yards to set the all-time yardage as well as the
school record in receptions at West Virginia State. The Yellow
Jackets lost to West Virginia Wesleyan but King did set the record
on Senior Day. Weston Palmer had 3 tackles for Princeton in a 52-
10 loss to Penn. Eziah'Youyoute and his Georgia Southern Eagles
upset top ranked Appalachian St. 21-14.
Now let's look at this Week's Bill O' Fare ...
1. South Carolina at Florida-Gators may have found the
right chemistry in the Vandy game. Gamecocks have their backs to

bowl eligibility but let's hope they get it done on the road this
week. Louisville 31 USF 27.
3. Cincinnati at West Virginia-WVU has lost the last two
years t tthe Bearcats. They should never have lost either game. It
won't happen a third time. West Virginia 27 Cincinnati 17.
4. Memphis at Marshall-It will be the 40th year anniversary
of the 1970 plane crash that took the lives of the Marshall Football
team. The Tigers have no chance to win as the Herd honors the
memory of the team. Marshall 45 Memphis 0.
5. Syracuse at Rutgers-Rutgers still has bowl hopes but look
for the Orange to bounce back after losing to Louisville. Syracuse,

Letter To The Editor

Why Most Of The U.S.

Media is 'Liberal Left'


Dear Editor.
I've wondered for a long time
why 98 percent of the media is
"liberal left" and promote this
policy everywhere. I finally
have the answer.
The CFR (Council on
Foreign Relations) has approxi-
mately 4.338 members of
which 398 members are listed
as journalists, editors, and cor-
respondents which include:
Michael Hirsh-Newsweek.
Jim Hoagland-Washingon
Post, Fareed Zakaria-Time
and CNN. Tom Friedman-NY
Times, Erin Burnett-CNBC,
Ethan Bronner-NY Times,
Paula Zahn-Discovery Chan-
nel, Heather Nauert-Fox
News, Normaniif Podliretz-
Commentary Magazine, Tom
Brokaw- NBC, Leslie Stahl-
CBS.
Andrea Mitchell-NBC,
Elaine Sciolino-NY Times,
Diane Sawyer-ABC, Deroy
Murdock-National Review on
Line, David Ignatius-
Washington Post, Alan


Murray-Wall Street Journal,
Jim Lehrer-PBS. Margret
Warner-PBS. -Judy-
Woodruff-PBS.. Christopher
Dickey-Newsweek. Mortimer
Zuckerman-US News.
Michael Bloomberg-Mayor of
NYC. Jeffrey Bewkes-Time
Warner. and Dan Rather.
Corporate Members Include
Time Warner, ABC Inc..
Bloomberg News
Corp..General Electric (NBC-
Universal). Google. Thompson
Reuters. and Washington Post.
More corporations and peo-
ple than listed here would
include 400-plus in the Obama
cabinet. As the CFR is a world-
wide group, we are being bom-
birded-by -foreigners and locals
alike to brainwash every U.S.
citizen to the liberal left secial-
ist communist way of thinking.
We need a lot of conservative
thinking thright-wing thinking
people in the next election. Vote
in November.
