Mosaic Moves


- moTOv OBY MI'HAL KELLY
This approximately six-million-pound dragline slowly crawled across County Line Road
East into Hardee County on Friday. The road was closed for most of the day as crews
covered it with an eight-foot layer of dirt so the asphalt was not damaged during the
move.

Kelly's Column

The Hardee Wildcat football team played a spirited strong
game Friday night in Tampa in losing 24-13 to the undefeated
Jesuit Tigers. The Cats finished at 3-8 after an 0-6 start. Jesuit will
play this Friday at Tampa Robinson.

Will the $2.6 billion bullet train project be built between
Tampa and Orlando? The high speed rail was scheduled to have
construction started in 2012, mostly paid by the federal govern-
ment.
And a second question-if built, where will the Lakeland area
stop be?

Florida's Natural not-from-concentrate orange juice sales rose
3 percent during the past year and now has an 18 percent market
share, trailing Tropicana and Minute Maid.
The grower cooperative paid an average of $1.53 a pound
solids, up 7.7 percent from $1.42 in the 2008-09 season. Grapefruit
nfc sales rose nearly two percent this year and grower prices rose
32 percent to $1.23 a pound solids.
Florida's Natural is the only major brand of nfc juice that is
from 100 percent Florida citrus.
Overall volume sales of orange juice fell one percent this year
in the U.S. Tropicana and Minute Maid, owned by Coca Cola, use
some juice from Brazil.

The FSU Seminoles are a three-point favorite to defeat the UF
Gators this Saturday in Tallahassee. Gator fans wish Tim Tebow
could have returned for a fifth season.


The price of cotton has risen about 80 percent in the last four
months following bad weather in Pakistan, China and India.
Pakistan had severe flooding just as the cotton crop was maturing.

Wauchula native Chip Jones, 55, son of Howard and Ferol
Jones of Wauchula, is facilitator at Peace River Center's Jeanene
Brown Drop-In Center in Lakeland. He was featured in a Page-I
Lakeland Ledger story on Nov. 22. He has worked for Peace River
Center for 18 years and was honored Nov. 12.
He suffered as a boy from mental distress and mourned the
deaths of his grandparents. The 1973 HHS graduate attempted sui-
cide at age 16, wrote Robin Williams Adams.
For a while he worked at a fence post plant and other manual
labor jobs but still had anxieties and had no life purpose, turning to
alcohol to make him feel less mental pain. He worked as a carpen-
ter and had a mental breakdown at age 30. He stopped drinking and
became a successful member of Alcoholics Anonymous in 1989.
He and his second wife Paula have a son David, 8. Father and
son like to go hiking, especially at Circle B Bar Reserve.
Counseling and medication helped him regain control of his
life over anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder
and to gain confidence in himself.
He loves his job and being able to help others with emotion-
al/mental problems. He is calm, low-key and soft-spoken most of
the time, wrote Adams. He is honest, humble and passionate about
helping others. Chip loves Chinese food and hot green tea. His
brothers are Randy and Clay.
Quite a few people have or have had periods of emotional or
mental distress. The holidays of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New
Year's are peak times for such anxiety and/or depression. Peace
River Center, which has an office in Wauchula, is there to help.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition says most U.S.
children do not drink enough water as recommendedby the U.S.
Institute of Medicine. Our bodies are 55 to 75 percent water by
weight and cannot store water, says Samantha Heller, clinical nutri-
tion coordinator for the cancer care center at Griffin Hospital in
Derby, Conn.

We hope everyone has a nice Thanksgiving holiday season.

Conversation is an art in which a man has all mankind for
competitors.


GREAT GIFT!


Continued From 1A


COURTESY PHOTOS
Reminiscent of the Little Drummer Boy, a Wauchula
youngster was searching for a gift. When 7-year-old
Savannah Valletutti learned about Locks of Love, she
knew what she had to do. After years of letting her hair
grow out, she got a big donation haircut at Klassix this
fall. The North Wauchula Elementary third-grader, daugh-
ter of David and Denise Valletutti, was happy to donate
her hair, "because It's for a good cause." Such donations
are used to make wigs for children or adults losing hair
due to cancer's chemo-therapy or other causes. She
received a "Certificate of Appreciation," from Locks of
Love In mid-November. She remained cheerful during the
haircut; top photo before the haircut, middle photo
shows the amount of hair she sacrificed and lower photo

her to do the dialysis hook-ups,

negative. As mentioned previ-
ously, Bryant's need for a donor
is great. "I know it sounds bad,
but I can do a live donor or a
deceased donor," says Bryant
earnestly.**
"The medical bills are insur-
mountable," stresses Bryant.
Medicare doesn't cover a lot of
the visits she has with the doc-
tor. "Its $1,500 every 2 months
in bills towards the pharmacy,"
she stated. Apart from the med-
ical bills, she's required to trav-
el to Watson Clinic in Lakeland
for her doctor appointments.
Gas money becomes a big
issue. As a source of money,
Bryant has settled with selling
her mother's condominium in
St. Petersburg. "We could really
use the money for the bills so if
anyone- is interested, they can
contact me at (863) 735-0461."
This citizen has asked for one
simple favor from the commu-
nity: "I just want to get my life
back so that I can stay with my
family. It really takes a toll on
us, but we're hangin' in there."
There have been many .in-:
stances with people in our com-
munity that have undergone
many afflictions-sometimes
unbearable ones. However,
even in the midst of some of the
most trying times, the commu-
nity has united; working togeth-
er, and helping one another in
any way they sought possible or
deemed necessary.
If anybody knows someone
that could be a match for Mrs.
Bryant, it would be greatly
appreciated.

Hundreds Of New Ways


To Fight
Scientists have made huge
strides against infectious dis-
eases, which until the 1920s
were the leading cause ofdeath
in the United States. Still, more
than 9.5 million people world-
wide die each year from infec-
tious diseases. Of particular
concern today are virulent
forms of "superbugs" that have
mutated and grown resistant to
available antibiotics. Respond-
ing to this need, America's bio-
pharmaceutical research com-
panies have nearly 400 new
medicines and vaccines in the
pipeline to fight infectious dis-
eases.
This is especially encourag-
ing as infectious diseases have
become more aggressive. For
example, only 2 percent of
staph infections in the U.S.
were drug resistant in 1974. The
percentage jumped to 63 per-
cent by 2004. Staph infections
now kill more people in the
U.S. than AIDS, according to
the U.S. Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention. When
staph bacteria spread to the
bloodstream, a life-threatening
illness known as sepsis can
occur. Sepsis, which has in-
creased by 91.3 percent over the
last 10 years, is expected to kill
215,000 people in the U.S. this
year. But there are 18 new med-
icines and vaccines to treat or
prevent staph infections and
sepsis that are currently in
development, according to the
Pharmaceutical Research and


Infection


Manufacturers of America
(PhRMA) report.
Scientists are also developing
treatments for infectious dis-
eases as varied as herpes, ra-
bies, meningitis and SARS. A
total of 145 vaccines are in de-
velopment to prevent a variety
of infections, including a num-
ber of forms of influenza. Ad-
ditionally, 88 antibiotics and 96
anti-virals are in development.
Further, scientists are also
working to thwart the potential
devastation of biological war-
fare agents. Ten separate treat-
ments for anthrax and three for
smallpox are in development.
Although medical progress
eradicated naturally occurring
smallpox in humans worldwide
by 1980, concerns remain that
the virus could be used as a
bioterrorism weapon.
PhRMA represents the coun-
try's leading pharmaceutical
research and biotechnology
companies, which are devoted
to inventing medicines that

healthier and more productive
lives. Learn more at

Traffic Stop Makes Drug Arrest


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A broken tag light led to three
drug charges against a Wau-
chula man.
Inosa Darceus, 29, of 697
Chamberlain Blvd., Wauchula,
was arrested on charges of sell-
ing marijuana within 1,000 feet
of a specified location, selling
cocaine within 1,000 feet of a
specified location, trafficking in
opium or its derivative (oxy-
codone) and possession of drug
paraphernalia.
The first is a second degree
felony, the next two first degree
felonies and the last a misde-
maanor. The amount of drug
involved sometimes determines
the degree of felony.
According to Wauchula Po-
lice Department reports, the in-
cident began shortly after 8:30
p.m. Sunday, when Ofc. Kevin
Brock noticed a red 1993
Chevy S-10 driving north on
Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
When the officer attempted to
stop the vehicle, it turned on
Miller Road onto Griffin Road


uarceus
and 'proceeded north to the
Circle K Store at 1102 E. Main
Street (CR 664) where it was
stopped in the parking lot.
As he was writing a warning
for the inoperative light, Cpl.
Christopher LeConte arrived
and had his drug-detecting K-9
sniff around the vehicle. When
it alerted of the presence of ille-
gal narcotics, the occupants
were asked to step out while a
search was completed.
There was a plastic bag with


marijuana residue on the front
seat, along with marijuana
seeds and stems. Hanging off
the ignition key chain was a
small container of 46 oxy-
codone pills. A black bag in the
driver's side of the tool box had
cocaine powder, baggies of
marijuana, a pill bottle and bag-
gies of "crack" cocaine. Finally,
the glove compartment con-,
tained an envelope full of
money, over $800 in small bills.
The passenger, who had
hitched a ride home, was
released pending further inves-
tigation. Because the various
drugs were packaged in a man-.
ner for street sales, Darceus was
charged with intent to sell, with
the added emphasis of location.
Attempting to sell drugs within
1,000 feet of a school, church,
day care center or convenience
store increases the charge and
possible penalty.
Darceus has a previous
record, spending time in Florida
State Prison on a cocaine sales
charge before his recent release.

Box Out Hunger

The holiday glitter has begun,
but that just leaves some
Hardee Countians in a deep
hole.
Ripe for depression, these
families cannot afford to put a

Hardee County, long known
for its generosity to those less
fortunate, can help.
The combined efforts of
Channel 13 News. and Sweet-
bay Supermarkets will give area
folks .an opportunity to help
their own in an effort dubbed
"Box Out Hunger."
Whenever someone shops at
Sweetbay Supermarket on U.S.
17 south of Wauchula, they can'
buy a $10 box of food. They


can take it out and give it to the
charity of their choice. Or it can
be designated for a local food
distribution center called
Cutting Edge Ministries.
The Zolfo Springs-based
Cutting Edge Ministries has
operated in the county for seven
or eight years, distributing U.S.
Department of Agriculture
commodities and food boxes to
the needy two days a week. It
served 957 local folks in
October.
Shoppers can designate their
food boxes and bags for Cutting
Edge or another local ministry.
If not marked, it will go to the
canforce distribution center in
Tampa.
The Box Out Hunger boxes
will be purchased and distrib-
uted through Dec. 31.

Museum MusinV
By Sandy Scott
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


The phrase "a picture is worth a thousand words" is on
we all probably grew up hearing; however, we don't really
about it until we are faced with the task of trying to analyze
* That has been the case with two photographs that were bi
into Cracker Trail Museum by James & Pam Timmons quite
time ago. There was very little information that was known
the subject matter except that it was a shop owned by Janie
mons grandfather, Johnny Timmons, and that one of the ind
als in one of the early photograph included him.
Both photographs were intriguing, so research immed
began to determine if additional information could be obt
Obviously, the business was that of a bicycle shop assumed
in Wauchula.
Further visual research included examining the photo
more closely particularly that of the interior walls. Corrugal
formed the two side walls and the building had an open be
ceiling. A full page printed publication "Bicycle News" was
ing from the back wall and by using a magnifying glass, a
certificate-type instrument hung next to it. This certificate inc
a printed year of 1926 centered on the paper, resembling that
Occupational License. No additional words could be deter
Another small paper with the words "Cardui" was also legible
the use of the hand held magnifying glass.


The publication "Bicycle News" had its beginning in 189
women's tonic "Cardui" was widely used in the 1920's a
course the "1926" may very well have been that of a city li
so further research was begun.

P. Timmons. While this census information is of historical and
genealogical interest, the second half of the printed census con-
firmed my assumption. Marked by the enumerator under the occu-
pation section was inserted the words "bicycle shop".
During routine researching, there are several individuals on
whom I rely, so the next step was contacting them. Jean Burton
thought the bicycle shop was a metal lean-to attached to a building
behind Wauchula State Bank. Marcus Shackelford said he knew
that Harvey Conerly's barber shop was located behind Wauchula
State Bank during 1950's and suggested I contact Bert Milligan for
information about the bicycle shop. Others contacted included Joe
Davis, Noveta Beeson and Lawrence Roberts and then I hit pay
dirt!
C.C. Searcy has visited Cracker Trail Museum a number of
times and we have a particular part of the building where we sit and
talk "bout the good old days" and he allows me to record his mem-
ories. I called and left a message with Shirley and on Saturday after
about three weeks research on the two photographs, C.C. once
again came to my rescue.
Through the interview, it was confirmed that Timmons Bicycle
Shop was in a tin building behind Wauchula State Bank and on the
south side of the alley. Johnny Morgan Timmons operated this
business for quite a while and since gambling was legal he also
repaired slot machines that were located in many of the businesses
on Main Street. The bicycle shop was somewhat like a community
blacksmith shop handling various types of repair including the
sharpening of saws. Next to Timmons Bicycle Shop traveling south
was a two story building used as a hotel that later became the
,P.ala, The.atr.
When Johnny fell on hard times, he sold the Bicycle Shop to
Johnny McClellan and C.C. remembers purchasing the saw filing
machine from McClellan afterwards. According to Searcy, Johnny
Morgan Timmons was always engaged in some type of business.
At one time he owned and operated a portable skating rink that was
located at the east side of the lot where Wauchula City Police
Department is today. He later worked on the construction of the
new Hendricks Field in Avon Park.
C.C. Searcy and John Timmons son, Stan, were very good
friends as well as business partners. They were the first to operate
the building later known as "C.B.'s" as a pool hall. They had six
pool tables in the building and it cost ten cents per game to play.
Attached to the tables were gaming devices where gambling could
be practiced if so desired.
The 45 minutes spent with C.C. Searcy provided me with
much more information about some of the early buildings in
Wauchula in addition to the questions I had concerning Timmons
Bicycle Shop. James Timmons was able to identify his grandfather
as being the one with his foot on the pedal of one of the bicycles,
but no other information concerning the photographs.
S While previously speaking with Lawrence Roberts on the tele-
phone, he suggested I talk to I.B. Knight who was in his office.
Knight suggested that dne of the others in the photographs might'
be a long time employee of Johnny's who worked in the bicycle
shop and perhaps upon examination of the original photos he may
be able to identify others as well.
So, three weeks of investigative work has paid off. James
Timmons now knows a little bit more about his grandfather and the
two new photographs located in Cracker Trail Museum have at
least been dated and include an explanation of where Timmons
Bicycle Shop was located.
Cracker Trail Museum is interested in learning more about our
history and more about your heritage. If you have photographs or
memorabilia, won't you consider sharing with us? All of us have
stories of growing up in Hardee County and now is the time to
share them with Cracker Trail Museum.


I would just like to offer a
few candid comments on Mo-
saic's bold new proposal which
ae that has captured so much media
think attention in the last week:

rought sort development on reclaimed

small As I scan this tract of land on
eluded Google Maps I see a land rav-

ally nothing that could be iden-
tified by as native Florida land-
scape except a little buffer
around Payne Creek. Yet, on the
Streamsong website it says:
"Here, the natural beauty of
Florida sets the stage for escape
amid pristine lakes and gentle
streams" and "Streamsong will
operate in concert with its envi-
ronment. This appreciation for
the land's inherent beauty cre-
ates an unparalleled luxury
resort."
Excuse me, not only has the
"inherent" or "natural beauty"
been excavated to a depth of
about 40-50 feet but a phos-
/ phate pit or CSA is not a "lake."
A mine pit really has nothing at
all in common with a natural

Week ending November 21, 2010

WEATHER CROP
Weather Summary: Cool and mostly dry weather prevailed
throughout November 15 through 21 with light showers in some
localities. Temperatures at the major stations averaged from three
degrees below normal to two degrees above normal. Frost occurred
in some areas across the Panhandle down to central Peninsula
areas. Nighttime temperatures were in the 30s to 50s with Miami
recording at least one low in the 60s. Daily highs were in the 70s
and 80s. Many localities received traces to less than a half an inch
of precipitation. Carrabelle, Jay, Pensacola, and Quincy received
over one inch of rainfall for the week. Monticello and Tallahassee
reported over two inches. Nearly four inches of rain was recorded
in Marianna.

Field Crops: Cotton harvesting remained active during the
week with light rains over parts of the Panhandle and northern
Peninsula. Sugarcane harvesting remained active in the Everglades
region. Growers finished peanut harvesting, compared to 96 per-
cent last season, and the five-year average of 98 percent. Cotton
harvesting was nearing the end in Jackson County. Soybean and
cotton .harvesting was expected to conclude by next week in
Washington County.

Vegetables: Another week of clear weather allowed field work
to progress on schedule as growers worked to meet the
Thanksgiving Day market. Fall crop harvest gained momentum in
central and southern Peninsula localities. Some tomato growers
were expected to finish for the season in west Florida in two weeks.
Tomato harvesting in the central and southern Peninsula areas
increased seasonally. Cooler temperatures aided strawberry devel-
opment around Plant City and Dover. Endive and escarole harvest
was expected to begin in 10 days. Very light shipments of sweet
corn. eggplant, radishes, and strawberries were marketed. Produc-
ers marketed avocados, snap beans, cucumbers, okra, bell peppers,
squash, and tomatoes.

Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition declined sea-
sonally. Winter forage planting has been limited by dry soil condi-
tions and supplemental hay was being fed. In the Panhandle, pas-
ture condition ranged from very poor to excellent with most poor
to fair. Less winter forage was planted due to the extremely dry fall.
Winter grazing got a boost and some plantings proceeded after
widespread but variable rainfall. Small grains and cool season for-
ages were rapidly being planted. The cattle condition ranged from
poor to excellent with most fair. Supplemental hay was being fed.
In the northern areas, pasture condition ranged from very poor to
good with most fair. Grazing was very short as cooler than normal
nighttime temperatures limited growth on permanent pastures. The
cattle were in very poor to excellent condition with most. in fair
condition. In the central areas, pasture ranged from very poor to
excellent with most poor to fair. Some producers were feeding hay
due to the lack of forage. Less winter forage was planted. The cat-
tle were mostly in fair condition. Most calves have been shipped.
In the southwestern areas, pasture condition ranged from poor to
excellent with most good. The cattle were in poor to excellent con-
dition with most in good condition. Statewide, the condition of the
cattle was very poor to excellent with most in good condition.

Citrus: Highs were in the 80s, with early morning lows rang-
ing from the upper 40s to the lower 50s. Moisture conditions
improved slightly with 18 of the 25 stations recording some pre-
cipitation. The station reporting the most precipitation was Ock-
lawaha, with 0.47 inch of recorded rainfall. Abnormally dry condi-
tions in all of the citrus area according to the U.S. drought monitor,
last updated on November 16. Indian River and Brevard counties
were experiencing extreme drought conditions, while surrounding
counties were experiencing severe conditions. Moderate to extreme
drought conditions extend over a third of the citrus area. Citrus har-
vest progressed with thirty-nine packinghouses and eight proces-
sors opened and a few more scheduled to open soon. Cultural prac-
tices included herbicide and fertilizer, application, tree removal,
and irrigation.

For the week ended November 18, 2010
At the Florida Livestock Auctions, receipts totaled 11,075, com-
pared to 10,398 last week, and 10,884 a year ago. According to
the Florida Federal-State Livestock Market News Service:
Compared to last week: Slaughter cows and bulls were unevenly
steady to 2.00 higher, feeder steers and heifers were unevenly
steady to weak.

to return the land they mine to
its original contours. These
"lakes" are generally allowed
by the DEP as "variances" from
the original reclamation plan
because of a lack of fill materi-
al which would be unprofitable
to overcome.
The Streamsong website goes
on to say: "Protecting the land
and water will be paramount to
the resort's development." Gee,
that's wonderful to know that
Mosaic will be protecting its
post-strip-mined property from
anything nasty that may disturb
the harmony and beauty of its
resort. I wonder what that might
be, by the way ... ? I suppose
Martians may want to land
there and use their property to
test nuclear bombs.
Considering that established
resorts are foundering in Flor-
ida and, elsewhere (i.e. Green-
lefe Resort, just off I-4 near
Haines City went bankrupt and
presently cannot find a buyer
for its three 18-hole PGA grade
golf courses, 50,000 square foot
conference center, 432 condo-
miniums, and marina) its hard
to believe that Mosaic is willing
to stake its reputation on this'
far-fetched venture with no air-
port or even a decent highway
nearby. (Note that not even one
square inch of this project is in
Hardee County.)
I hate to appear cynical in the
face of this fabulous news, but I
perceive Streamsong as a red
herring. I, for one, will be
watching this project with
detached curiosity, and I shall
not be holding my breath in
anticipation of its ultimate suc-
cess.

the biological status review
teams, composed of recognized
experts and led by an FWC staff
member, the reports will be sent
for review to national and inter-
national experts for each wild-
life species. However, before
the Commission removes any
species from the list, a manage-
ment plan will have to be writ-
ten and approved. One goal of
the management plans is to
ensure the species never reach-
es a high risk of extinction
again, which would result in the
need to re-list the species.
The reviews in Florida are
still under way for many of the
remaining 61 species, and the
preliminary findings will be
available sometime in early
December. The Commission
could consider staff recommen-
dations as early as April.
"This is a huge effort on the
part of the teams, and the
process is working very well,"
Haubold said. "But this does
not mean our work is done far
from it. We still have lots to do
to ensure no species ever goes
extinct in Florida."
One of the species reviewed
was the Florida black bear,
which is currently listed as
threatened in Florida. The bio-
logical review group found
black -bear numbers have
increased and the population is
not in decline. However, before
any change in status is made,
several steps must be complet-
ed, including developing a
management plan that ensures
the species will continue to
thrive in the future. The FWC is
currently accepting public and
stakeholder input on the draft
bear-management plan to make
sure it contains the best possible
objectives and strategies to con-
serve Florida black bears.
"When a species is delisted-
no longer in danger of extinc-
tion-it is truly a reason to cel-
ebrate," Haubold said. "It
means Florida's past efforts to
increase protected and well-
managed habitat, educate the
public and manage the popula-
tion have resulted in the very
best possible scenario: a species
brought back from a high risk
of extinction."

Some Species No


Longer Threatened


The preliminary findings of
biological status reviews on
listed species reveal success
stories for some of Florida's
most vulnerable species. Al-
though work is still under way,
in early November, experts
appointed by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) began to
review the information and data
received on 61 state-listed
species against Florida's listing
criteria. The groups found that
several species may no longer
be at risk of extinction and may
not need to be listed.
"We hope these preliminary
findings will result in the dis-
covery that our conservation
measures in the past decade
have had measurable, beneficial
impacts on wildlife in Florida,"
said Dr. Elsa Haubold, who
heads up the FWC'slthreatened-
species listing process team.
Ten currently listed mammals
have undergone the preliminary
status reviews, and initial re-
sults indicate that five species

JROTC Cadets Attend Leadership Lab STATE RER DENISE GRIMSLEY


Members of Hardee Senior
High School's Air Force Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps
(AFJROTC) program recently
attended a pair of two-day lead-
ership and education camps at
the Hardee County Outdoor
Classroom. Ninety-seven mem-
bers of the unit participated
over November 4th and 5th and
November llth and 12th. The
trip featured canoeing down the
Peace River, overnight camping
at the Fazzini property, and
plenty of friendly competition
among the cadets.
"This has become one of our
most popular activities for the
cadets to experience", said Lt.
Col. Anthony Hingle, the pro-
gram's lead instructor. "It's an
opportunity for the kids to real-
ly bond, build unit cohesion,
and to practice many of the
things we teach in the class-
room every day", he added. In


addition to leadership training.
cadets were provided informa-
tion about the Peace River
watershed by Outdoor Class-
room instructor Kayton Nedza.
One of the highlights of the trip,
according to Hingle. was the
disaster survival lesson taught
by Hardee County Emergency
Management Director Rich
Shepard. The students were
given the opportunity to treat
simulated casualties by having
team members wear moulage
that mimicked actual injuries
they might experience in a sur-
vival situation.
The majority of the planning
and execution of the trips was
conducted by the students
themselves. The cadet leader-
ship staff had to plan for meals,
activities, and set a schedule for
each two-day event. Addition-
ally, senior leadership cadets
supervised the many activities


and ran the camp once the
cadets arrived.
The curriculum for this year
focuses on the science of flight.
but the camp included many
other academic topics including
drill-and ceremony. unit history.
leadership, and communication.
The finale of the event was a
"winner take all" version of
"Jeopardy" where teams tested
their knowledge of all the aca-
demic topics presented in the
classroom.
Hardee Senior High School's
AFJROTC program is under the
direction of Lt. Col. Anthony
Hingle. USAF (Ret.) and Chief
Master Sergeant Bob Waltich.,
USAF (Ret.). The unit has been
the recipient of many awards
including the Distinguished
Unit Citation and .has per-
formed countless hours of com-
munity service since its found-
ing in 2005.

It was a hardy group that spent last Thursday on a food-gathering mission to help the
needy have happy holidays. Coordinating the radio and roadside collection were (from

State Farm Insurance and Mike Williams of the radio station.

Food Helps NeedyHaive Holidays


By SANDY SCOTT
Special To The Herald-Advocate
A cool breeze lingered over
Wauchula on Wednesday morn-
ing which reminded us that fall
is definitely here.
However, along with, that
change in the weather, came a
heavy fog in the early hours as
Hardee County citizens rushed
to work traveling south on U.S.
17. Even with the extremely
low visibility between 7 and 9
a.m., once again this county of
friends and neighbors answered
the call around this holiday sea-
son to those who are less fortu-
nate.
State Farm agent David Sing-
letary, Alan Jay Chevrolet Gen-
eral Manager Kevin Hanchey
and Wauchula Police Chief Bill
Beattie started the ball rolling
by exchanging ideas for an all-
out effort to assist the local
Hardee Help Center whose pri-
mary purpose is to reach out
and help Hardee County fami-
lies with various needs.
The plan was put together
and soon local Radio Station
106.9 climbed aboard the band.
wagon. The ever distinguish-
able van with "The Bull" print-
ed on its side could not be over-
looked even in the foggy condi-
tions as it took up its temporary
residency on the shoulder of
U.S. 17 South in front of Alan
Jay Chevrolet.
The live broadcast began
promptly at 7 a.m. Soon Bubba
James and Thomas Trevino
were bantering back and forth
to their radio listeners assisted
by Summer Dunnaway, Mike
Williams and wife, Casey. All
of their listeners were invited to
join in to meet the challenge.
Nearby, a 2010 silver metal-
Slic Chevrolet Silverado sat
awaiting the first of many bags
of groceries consisting of
canned goods and miscella-
neous non-perishable food
items that would soon fill the
shelves of the Hardee Help
Center to later be distributed to
those families who are in such
dire need.
* Thischi(enge to Hardee
County folks did not go un-
:heard. Even the early hours, the
rush to get to work on time and
the deteriorated weather condi-
tions did not deter Hardee
County businessmen, cattle-
'men, ranchers, short-time resi-
idents and longtime residents
.from coming to the aid of this
fine organization that is spon-
sored by the Hardee County
Ministerial Association and
which provides food and other
assistance from its location at
East Bay Street in Wauchula.
It was decided that "The
Bull" would extend its live feed
from Alan Jay Chevrolet from'
the first advertised hours of 7 to
10 a.m. to 3 that afternoon. Au-
tomobiles, pick-up-trucks and
SUVs continued to turn into the
driveway and the Silverado was
soon loaded with bags of all. dif-
ferent colors and designs.
Sweetbay Supermarket, a
longtime supporter of Hardee
County causes, announced that
for every $100 spent in its store,
a pre-packaged boxful of food
items would be donated. Each
box contained enough items to
feed a family of four for one
day. It wasn't long before the
grocery.bags already filling up
the bed of the Silverado were
accompanied by these b6xes.
More challenges were made
throughout the morning and a
telephone call made by Wau-
chula's Police Chief Bill Beattie
quickly brought a visit from
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
Chief Michael Choate accom-
panied by a fire truck and other
employees.
The outcome of the eight-
hour project was over $2,000
worth of food items stuffed into


bags and boxes filling Alan
Jay's Silverado Pick-up Truck
and $3,000 in cash that would
benefit Hardee County families.
The outpouring of the will-
ingness for Hardee County citi-
zens to dig deep into their pock-
ets at the beginning of this holi-
day season has-overwhelmed
the staff at Alan Jay Chevrolet
to the extent that they have
decided to continue with this
project from now until Christ-
mas. The beautiful Chevy Sil-
verado has been fmoved to the
showroom filled full of expres-
sions of love from the con-
cerned residents of Hardee
County and now beckons visi-
tors to continue to remember its
neighbors by keeping it filled
with canned goods. In addition,


donations may be made at any
of the county fire departments
and at the Alan Jay Ford dealer-
ship in Wauchula as well.
Won't you answer the chal-
lenge that Alan Jay Chevrolet,
Sweetbay Supermarket and
Radio Station 106.9 has made?
What started out as a vision by
David Singletary, Bill Beattie
and Kevin Hanchey could
develop into an all-out effort by
Hardee County citizens to pro-
vide the means by which the
Hardee Help Center needs to
reach out to those requiring
assistance.

It is all right to hold a con-
versation but you should
let go of it now and then.- '

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat season
came to an end Friday night
after a 24-13 loss to Tampa
Jesuit in the opening round of
the state Class 2A playoffs.
The Tigers received to open
the game and went on an 11-
play, 80-yard drive capped of
by a 2-yard run by Anthony
Harrell.
The'Kyle Bellini point after
touchdown (PAT) try was good,
giving Jesuit an early 7-0 lead.
Hardee took over from its
20-yard line and was forced to
punt three plays later.
The Octavio Alvarez punt
went 35 yards and Jesuit took
over at its 47-yard line.
The Hardee defense spoiled
that good field position and
forced a punt when senior mid-
dle linebacker Quinton Carlton
burst thru the line and sacked
quarterback Patton Chillura for
a 9-yard loss.
Carlton finished his last
game as a Wildcat with 14 tack-
les, including two sacks.
Hardee started from its 16-
yard line and was unable to get
into a rhythm and was forced to
another three-and-out on of-
fense.
The 36-yard Alvarez punt
was fielded at the 50 by Bryce
Walker who returned it to the
Wildcat 37-yard line.
Jesuit was forced to settle for
a 28-yard Bellini field goal after
senior Wildcat Tre' Anderson
batted down a Chillura pass on
third down..
Down 10-0, the Hardee of-
fense got things going on its
third drive of the game.
Senior Jake Mayer started
the drive by ripping off a 31-
yard run on a misdirection play
over the left guard.
Mayer was the leading
Wildcat rusher for the game,
finishing with 70 yards on 11
carries.
On the next play, junior 'Cat
quarterback Colby Baker found
classmate Andrew Hooks open
over the middle.


Baker lobbed the pass over
the linebackers and. Hooks
made a spectacular diving catch
for a 25-yard completion.
Three plays later Baker
found Hooks open again, this
time for a 24-yard touchdown.
The Alvarez PAT was true
and the Wildcats trailed 10-7
with 5:13 remaining in the half.
Jesuit took over from its 16-
yard line and made a few first
downs before freshman James
Greene got free and sacked
Chillura for a big loss on third
down.
The Tigers tried a fake punt
and threw a deep pass to a wide-
open receiver who caught the
ball but was out of bounds, giv-
ing Hardee the ball at the Jesuit
42-yard line with 52 seconds
left before halftime.
The Wildcats got a first down
and set up a last second field
goal for Alvarez.
The long 45-yard attempt
was going to split the uprights
before falling just short, send-
ing Hardee to the locker room
down 10-7 at halftime.
The 'Cats came out strong in
the second half and took the
opening drive deep into Jesuit
territory behind runs from sen-
ior Jarrius Lindsey, Mayer and
Hooks.


The Wildcats got down in-
side the- 10-yard line before a
holding penalty moved them
backward.
On second down from the
16-yard line Baker had the shot-
gun snap sail over his head for a
24-yard loss.
Hardee was forced to punt
and another bad snap prevented
Alvarez from kicking the ball.
Jesuit took over at the 50-yard
line.
Jesuit capitalized seven plays
later when Harrell found the
end zone on a 14-yard run mak-
ing it 17-7 after the Bellini PAT
with 3:12 left in the third quar-
ter.
Hardee got the ball back and
was facing fourth and two from
its 40-yard line and elected to
try a fake punt.
Baker was lined up as the up
back and caught the snap before
it got to the punter and ran an
option-type play with Alvarez.
The pitch was fumbled and
picked up by Derrick Friga at
the 40-yard line and he returned
it to the Wildcats' 26-yard line.
Two plays later Chillura
found Travis Johnson for a 21-
yard touchdown pass with
10:57 remaining in the game,
making the score 24-7 after the
Bellini PAT.

The Wildcat offense took
over from the 38-yard line after
a long kick return by Hooks.
The 'Cats went right to work
and picked up big chunks of
yards with first-down runs by
Mayer, Lindsey and Hooks.
Hooks capped off the drive
with an 11-yard pitch around
the left end, going into the end
zone untouched.
The PAT was no good and
Hardee trailed 24-13 with 6:59
left in the game.
Hardee tried an onside kick
and Jesuit recovered at its 47-
yard line.
A few plays later, the Hardee
defense recovered a fumble but
was unable to score.
Baker was intercepted on a
desperation fourth-down pass
with 1:10 remaining in the
game, ending the Wildcats scor-
ing chances
Jesuit took a knee and the
game was over for a final score
of 24-13.
Beginning the season with a
practically new, relatively inex-
perienced offensive line and
quarterback, the Wildcats grew
during the season. Both the jun-
ior varsity and junior high
teams were undefeated last year
and this year, providing upcom-
ing talent for the 2011 Wildcats.
Hardee will lose D'Vonte

ley, Austin Prestridge, Jimmy
Vallejo, Andrew Hunt, Jorge
Ayala, Herbert Pace, Anderson,

Letter To The Editor

Florida Hospital Wauchula

Features Renovated Lab


Dear Editor:
In the Florida Hospital
Wauchula lab, getting from
"here" to "there" quickly and
efficiently can mean saving
vital time getting results and a
more effective work environ-
ment.
When the age of the lab
began to show, it became appar-
ent that a complete renovation
of the, Lab was necessary.
The Florida Hospital Wau-
chula Foundation Board step-
ped up to the challenge and
with the help of the community
raised the necessary funding to
completely renovate the Lab.
The Foundation made sure that
the lab was renovated to reduce
congestion and increase staff
efficiency and morale.
According to Wayne Wil-
liams, lab technician, the
Foundation's efforts worked,
benefiting the staff and the
patients. Not only is Wayne
thankful for the workflow
improvements, he can also con-
centrate on doing his work for
the glory of God.


Ih


"The renovations made the
Lab a place where you want to
come to work...a place any
medical technologist would be
proud of," Williams said.
Lab renovations began in
May and included a complete
overhaul of the previous lab.
The newly renovated lab
reduces turnaround time for
reporting lab test to physicians
by 9 percent; meets space
requirements per Joint Com-
mission standard; improves
efficiency; increases storage
area by 30 percent; improves
work environment, cleanliness
and organization by reducing
clutter; and improves employee
satisfaction and morale.
With the community's help,
the Florida Hospital Wauchula
Foundation Board raised the
$80,000 necessary to complete
the renovation.
For more information on the
Foundation, contact Jamie
Bateman at 863-405-5369.

Congratulations to Hardee football for ending a steadily im-
proving 2010 season with promise of so much more to come in
2011.
Although a baker's dozen is graduating, there will be a huge
junior class expected for next year. bringing a lot of experience at
many positions.

Related news from the Florida High School Athletic Associa-
tion, announced on Monday, is reclassifications in football and in
other sports.
In football, there is an expanded classification system, adding a
rural classification for the smallest of schools, with 44 to 600 stu-
* dents. According to the FHSAA population listing. Hardee High
has 1,238 students. That would put Hardee High in the 3A football
classification with 83 other schools population 1.100 to 1,580. The
breakdown of districts will be announced in December.
Also, FHSAA changed the classification for sports other than
football, moving them to eight classifications from rural 44-600,'to
IA and on up to 7A. Here. Hardee would just manage to be placed
in 4A, schools of 1.217 to 1598 students.

Fall sports are under way in a big way. Boys soccer got started
on Nov. 16, taking DeSoto to a 0-0 tie into the fourth period when
DeSoto scored on a pair of corner kicks and another on a solo
breakaway to win 3-0. On Nov. 18, Oscar Palacios scored twice
and Jose Lopez scored to tie the game 3-3 against Sarasota Booker.
We know Hardee girls soccer won 2-0 against DeSoto, but
don't know the results of their Booker game. We will try to catch
up after the holiday break.

Basketball girls were first to start, splitting games, winning
over Walker and losing a hard-fought battle at Sebring. Losing
Maria Avalos to injury and Robyn Tanksley to fouls, Hardee lost its
early lead and lost 48-40.
Hardee girls had a game Tuesday of this week at Lakeland,


w while Hardee boys were at Lake PIlacd. 'I hey both break until next
week's games. the girls at home T1uesda for a varsity-only
matchup with Sarasota Cardinal Mooney and the boys on the road
all week.
Junior High basketball practices are on the move. The first
games are Dec. 2 at home against Lake Placid. Girls games are at
5:30 p.m.. followed by the boys games, about 6:30

There's still time to plan for the Hardee Youth Football Athletic
and Scholastic awards banquet. Players and cheerleaders receive
complimentary meal tickets. Adult tickets are $15 and other chil-
dren $7.50. It will be catered by the Texas Cattle Co. For ticket or
table sponsorship information, contact Donna Parks at 863-245-

eration with the hospital.

BEDROCK BUSINESS

Doris Lambert: Retirement Is Not An Option


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
In 40 years, America has mandated
fuel-efficient vehicles and full seat belts.
In 40 years, satellite dishes and comput-
ers have become commonplace in
homes.
And in 40 years Doris Lambert has
left an impact on Hardee County's real
estate market; beginning with a sense of
unknowing and continuing to go strong
in the eyes of the beholder.
During the purchase of her second
house, Lambert was confused with the
process and wanted to learn the ins and
outs of real estate.
"I took a course to pursue my license,
and worked for Joe L Davis for 18 years.
Since then, I've learned to love the real
estate business," says Lambert.
"I've been very fortunate to be in this
line of work for so long, and dread leav-
ing it. I wish I would have found it soon-
er," she adds.
The daughter of the late Reuel and
Shellie Spearman, Lambert is a lifelong
resident of Hardee County and a 1945
graduate of what was then called Wau-
chula High School.
Following her schooling, Lambert
settled down, married and had children,
choosing to stay home as a housewife
until her children went to school. She
and William R. "Bobby" Lambert were
married for 59 years until his death.
They had three children: Lynn Ben-
nett, and husband Randy, of Wauchula;
Bill Lambert, and wife Marie, of
Bowling Green; and Ken Lambert, and
wife Eileen, of Wauchula. Their seven
grandchildren include Robb Bennett of
Apollo Beach, Ron Bennett of Atlanta,
Ga., Will Lambert of Parrish, Susan
Lambert Brown of Alpharetta, Ga., and
Ryan Lambert, Grayson Lambert and
Carter Lambert, all of Wauchula. Two
great-grandchildren are Amber Bennett
of Apollo Beach and Caroline Lambert
of Parrish.
As a real estate agent, Lambert sells
homes, groves, and pasture land. Many
skills are required when taking this job,
and certification must be met and

renewed every two years by attending a
14-hour class.
"I've never not considered renewing
my license. I also keep up with the laws
by taking courses," says Lambert.
The Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI)
symbol is the mark of a real estate pro-
fessional who has made the commitment
to provide a high level of professional
services by securing a strong education-
al foundation. Gaining this title includes
90 hours of coursework on topics rang-
ing from marketing and servicing listed
properties to real estate law 90 hours
which Doris Lambert has put in.
Due to her first interest when buying
a home, Lambert is a residential special-
ist who works to put people in the right
place.
One of her main focuses is with
young couples buying for the first time,
trying to ensure a starter home which
they can afford on one salary then work-
ing with them to upgrade if necessary.
"Indeed, they must learn to crawl before
they walk" she says.
On average, a time span of three
months is .spent once a house has been
chosen. Lambert spends every waking
moment ensuring the couple is informed
and understands the process,
"I try to live by the golden kile and

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

75 YEARS AGO
Thirteen local rural schools
will close this week due to the
lack of funds, and unless more
funds are secured in the very
near future, Hardee's entire
school system will be closed by
the end of January. The rural
district schools have been run-
ning for about four months, half
of their eight-month term.
Hardee County has a total of 21
schools.

The annual Turkey Day clas-
sic between Wauchula Wild-
cats' Orange and Blue and the
DeSoto Bulldogs of Arcadia
will be staged on the Wauchula
athletic field Thanksgiving
night in the fifteenth clash of
the two schools on the gridiron.

Four parties of Hardee
County nimrods left Monday
for the Everglades, where they
have gone in the quest for deer,
turkey and other game. The par-
ties: thirty-six men and twenty-
two dogs, expected to pitch
camp on Tuesday and be ready
for the opening on hunting sea-
son on Wednesday.

Stansfield Drug Co. in Wau-
chula offers all McKesson's
Products, milk of magnesia,
mineral oil, worm syrup, senna
leaves, eyebath, cod liver oil,
poison ivy lotion, hydrogen
peroxide, beef iron and wine,
Pursang blood tonic and other
medicinal preparations.

50 YEARS AGO
The move from the old
makeshift building to a brand
new building began this week
for the staff of the Bowling
Green post office. Postmaster
Troy Smith said most of the
interior work on the building at
Main Street and East Central
Avenue had been completed
last week.

The tomato market locally
has strengthened slightly and is
expected to pick up next week.
The volume is still light be-
cause of hurricane damage.
I A
A hundred and twenty acres
of land, most of it in grove, sold
for an indicated $191,000 last
week to top the real estate trans-
actions of the week. The prop-
erty, two miles south of Griffins
Corner, is partly improved pas-
ture.

Hardee's economy grew
steadily, though not spectacu-
larly during 1959, according to
the new Statistical Abstract of
Florida Counties recently re-
leased. Per capital income in-
creased nearly $200, from
$1,167 in 1958 to $1,303 in
1959. The total buying income
in Hardee County in 1959 was
$17,589,000, compared to only
$14,589,000 the previous year.
Of the nine types of stores,
three in the county increased
retail sales, including: lumber,
building material and hardware;
food stores; and general mer-
chandise.


25 YEARS AGO
A page 1 picture shows burn-
ing of the mortgage on the
Hardee County Fair complex
and arena. It included Joe L.
Davis Sr., who put up the
matching funds to pay off the
final $75,000, Jewel Harper of
Wauchula State Bank, and
Hardee County Cattlemen's
Association members John Roy
Gough, Robert Ray Smith and
Wayne Collier.

Catheryn McDonald was
mistress of ceremonies as
Senior Citizens' Day closed the
Hardee County Fair. Edward
Tobaz and Betty Ballad were
crowned the 1985 Golden Age
King and Queen.

Real estate sales this week
varied from a 3BR, 2 bath
mobile home on one acre with a
nice yard and shade trees for
$21,000 to a lovely 4 BR, 3
bath on 3.5 acres close to town
for $138,000. Others were a
cypress 3 BR, 2-bath home with
central air/heat for $75,000 and
a totally renovated frame home
on four lots in Bowling Green
for $41,000.

10 YEARS AGO
Plans are moving forward for
the development of the nearly
1,200-acre Hardee Lakes Park
off Ollie Roberts Road in the
northwest corner of Hardee
County. The site, which
stretches north along the Payne
Creek perimeter, was donated
to the county this summer by
IMC Phosphate Co.

A Hardee Senior High pep
rally had a different approach
this year as four high school
employees battled it out in mud
wrestling at the Cattlemen's
Arena. Vice-Principal Roy
Shaw referred the women's
match between Stacy Durden
and Peggy Saddler, while John
Sharp and Brent Harbin chal-


lenged for the men's title.

Spot ads included Bowling
Green Quick Lube and Auto
Repair, The Clinic for Her,
Rent-A-Center, Florida Clinic
of Hardee. Granny's Cracker


Trail (formerly Double J), El
Taco Loco, Hidden Treasures,
Nicholson Supply Ace Hard-
ware, Hill's Midway, Thera-
peutic Massage and Heartland
Pediatrics.

PARK IMPROVEMENTS
Wow! Dick Ellis has been
busy since his return from the
North.' He had contracted a
Company to resurface the walk-
way to the Recreation Hall and
Chapel. If you have not seen it
or had a need to go to the Hall I
am giving you one now. It is
beautiful! While in the area,
check out the Pool. The pool is
getting a facelift too. Heartland
Pool Service has been working
on the' Pool for a few days.
There were four men working
on the Pool while I was there. I
was told by the Crew Chief that
they had just applied Diamond
Bright to the bottom. When the
Pool was finished and filled
with water the bottom will look
like there are a million dia-
monds in the bottom. The men
of the Park are going to paint
the sides of the Pool and the
Deck. The Pool should be
reopen by the time you read this
articial that is if all goes accord-
ing to plan.

PARK ACTIVITIES
Did you know that there
are things happening in the
,Park? Billy and Charlotte
Wilson are here on Sunday
Evenings to Entertain us with
Karaoke.
On Monday and Thursday
Evenings Charlotte Wilson and
Deana Paswater are really busy
because they are in charge of
Bingo. I have to say they are
doing a wonderful job! They
have made some changes that
pre good for the Park. They are
hoping to get more people com-
ing down to the Recreation Hall
with fewer games and more


money per game. On Thursday
Virginia Kerns won the first
coverall and I won the final
coverall. On Thursday Pat
Bohnett won the first coverall. I
won the final coverall again.
That was three in a row. I am
sure glad the Pool is empty, as
they would like to put me in it.
Moe and Millie Welbaum
informed me that Euchre is
being played on Saturday and
Wednesday Evenings. Said they
are not keeping scores for the
paper. However, everyone is
enjoying the games. They will
when more people are here
playing.
Nickle-Nickle is also being
played on Wednesday Evening.
There are things to do every
evening at the Recreation Hall.
Just nothing I can put in the
paper.

THANKSGIVING
We can say Thanksgiving
is over. Or else we can say the
Holiday Season is just begin-
ning. Yes, there is Party
Planning in the air. Our
Christmas Party is planned for
December 10. So mark your
Calendars early. The date was
decided upon at the Association
meeting on Tuesday Evening.
Everyone needs to get out and
go to these meetings so you
know what is happening in the
Park.
MONTHLY PLANNER
I regret to inform all of you
that I had to give up this job.

CHURCH NEWS
by Diane Burget
We were greeted Nov. 14 by
Maxine Stromme as we entered
for worship service. Pastor Bob
Winne opened our worship
service by asking us to sing
"Oh, Come Let Us Lay Some
Soul upon My Heart." We were
accompanied by Wilma Behy-
mer on the organ and Carol
Jones on the piano. Pastor Bob
also accompanied us with his
trombone. Nancy Morrison dir-
ected our choir as it sang "Give
Him the Glory." The offering
prayer was given by Don
Merillat and Lowell Gordon
and Bob Wilday served as offer-
ing stewards. Pastor Bob's mes-
sage for us today was for us to
ask ourselves if we really
thought we were going to heav-
en and on what basis did we
base our belief? Some of the
scripture referenced was from II
Corinthians 10:12, Luke 19:10
and Ephesians 2:8-9.


CHAPEL

organ, the ushers. Ray and
Darlene Hayes and Cloyce and

"Prayer". The closing hymn
was "Till We Meet Again".

COFFEE HOUR

doughnuts, the pledge was led
by Frank Feeser and the Lord's
Prayer by Janet.
We had Fire and Rescue to
speak, they have two-man crew
in Bowling Green, five in
Wauchula, and five in Zolfo
Springs. We have a better
understanding of how well we
are served if the need arises.
Janet made many announce-
ments, and she and John are
passing on their reign as King
and Queen to a new couple. The
residents were given the oppor-
tunity 'to vote for their choice
for the next King and Queen
and will be announced Dec. 4 at
the tree lighting and caroling
evening. They will be honored
with a carriage and pony ride
around the park, donated by'
Don and Rose Simmers of
Wauchula, and will also be

ing while he is here at our park.
Barb works part-time at the
Wauchula, Winn-Dixie in the
seafood department. She retired
from the Syracuse newspaper
where she was a customer serv-
ice manager. Her interests are
reading, quilting, shuffling and
horseshoes. Her problem is try-
ing to fit all this in at a park that
is so busy, which is why they
'chose this park, with so many
activities and the friendliness of
the people.
We are so very happy to wel-
come them to the neighborhood
and are looking forward to get-
ting to know them and have
them a part of our park family.'

Setting a good example for'
children takes all the fun
out of middle age.
Young people today who
prefer the later works of
Degas and -Renoir hardly
realize how much of its
looser character was due
to their failing sight.

Wins 3 State Awards


Interim Secretary of State
Dawn K. Roberts has an-
nounced the recipients of the
Secretary of State's 2010 Flor-
ida Main Street Awards.
Main Street Wauchula Inc.
was presented with three of the
state awards.
"I am proud to recognize the
activities and accomplishments
of this year's honorees," said
Roberts. "Their sincere focus
on preservation and contribu-
tions to Main Street programs
across the state are essential to
the revitalization of Florida's
traditional commercial dis-


tricts."
The awards are based on the
recommendations of the Ad
Hoc Florida Main Street
Awards Committee, which con-
vened earlier to consider the
applications received for 2010.

Wisley, Florida Main Street

local Main Street program man-
agers: William Kilpatrick, Main

ages and acknowledges local-

plishments that advance the
goals of the Florida Main Street

a technical assistance program
of the Bureau of Historic
Preservation, Division of His-
torical Resources, Florida De-
partment of State.
The bureau conducts state-
wide programs aimed at identi-
fying, evaluating and preserv-
ing Florida's historic resources.


Main Street. with its emphasis
on preservation, is an effective
strategy for achieving these
goals in Florida's historic retail
districts.
Since 1985, the bureau has
offered manager training, con-
sultant team visits, design and
other technical assistance, as
well as the benefit of experi-
ence gained by other Florida
Main Street programs.
Twenty-five honor or merit
awards were presented for
exceptional accomplishments
within' Florida Main Street
communities. Of those 25, three.
were awarded to Main Street
Wauchula in addition to a
Fifteen-Year Anniversary

Wildcat Hoops Got




Going Tuesday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Not yet at full strength, the
Hardee Wildcat basketball team
nevertheless opened its season
Tuesday.
The Wildcats start with a six-
game road streak, coming home
in December only for a Dec. 17


game versus Mulberry.
The 'Cats make up for it with
a seven-game home stand in-
early January and hosting the
Class 3A District 11 playoffs
this year. the week of Feb. 7-11.
Head coach Vance Dickey is
upbeat about his squad's
chances this season. They have


20 regular-season games, 10
each home and away against-
district opponents DeSoto,
Sarasota Booker, Sarasota
Cardinal Mooney and Braden-
ton Southeast, two Class 5A
opponents Sebring and Port
Charlotte, and the rest against
3A-9 opponents' Avon Park,.
Mulberry, Lake Placid and Fort
Meade.
When all his players are
together, after football season
ends, the varsity squad may
include seniors Carl Brown,
Tre' Anderson, De'Vonte
Hooks, Tony Rodriguez and
Jimmy Vallejo, juniors Jajuan
Hooks, Andrew Hooks, Keshun
Rivers and Bobby Brown and
freshman Keyon Brown.
Travis Bone will return as
Dickey's varsity assistant. The
JV will be handled by Dickey,
head coach Carl Brown and
Shawn Rivers.
On the JV squad are sophs
Daniel Boehm, Ladarus Samp-
son, Christian Morales and
Alonzo "Cane" Casso, and
freshmen Steve Metayer, Jacob
Neuhofer, Lucious Everett and
Zack Neuhofer.
Hardee will hold to a usual
varsity/JV schedule for nearly
all games this season. The 'Cats
won't try to play tournaments,
instead focusing on getting
more experience for the JV
players, who normally are left
out of tournaments and lose
their continuity.
The lone exception is on Jan.
11, which will be a home dou-
ble-header against Southeast,
with the varsity girls playing at
6 p.m. and varsity boys at 7:30.

If youth knew; if age could.

4C The Herald-Advocate, November 25, 2010


Hoop G
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Lady Wildcats
started the season well.
The girls overpowered visit-
ing Walker Memorial, then led
Sebring until the fourth quarter.
'This week's only game was
*Tuesday at Lakeland High.
After Thanksgiving, the girls go
to Cardinal Mooney for a varsi-
ty-only encounter on Nov. 30
and play Dec. 2 at Bradenton
Southeast.
Senior Ashley Louis has used
her height effectively in scoring
well for the Lady 'Cats, getting
20 points against Walker and 17
against Sebring.
In the home opener, Hardee
trailed 13-12 after a feeling-out
first quarter. The Hardee de-
fense quieted the Lady Crusad-
ers, allowing only two points in
taking a 20-15 lead into the
locker room at halftime. Walker
bounced back in the third frame
to knot the game at 26-all as the
third period ended. A strong
fourth-quarter effort by Hardee
took the win 42-37. Louis had
eight and junior Robin Tanksley
added five more in the fourth
period.
Louis led all scorers with 20
points on seven deuces, a trey
and a trio of three throws.
Kristle Laughten led Walker
with 15 points.
Also scoring for Hardee were
Tanksley with nine points, jun-
ior paige Massey with four, and
seniors Elvira Servin, LaCresha
Carlton and Maria Avolos each
three points. Soph Kayla


SAFETY PATROL


rirls Split Games


Nichols, and juniors Caitlin
Sockalowsky and Artrice Hines
did not get in the scoring col-
umn.
Defensively, Louis was also
the leader with 17 rebounds, 10
on the defensive boards, plus
four steals and a hustle. Service
had a half dozen steals and a
trio of hustles. Carlton had five
rebounds, two each assists and
steals and four hustles. Each of
the other players added re-
bounds and assists.
Last Thursday, 3A Hardee
had its first road game, taking
on always tough 5A Sebring.
Hardee was up 15-14 at the end
of quarter and 29-27 at the half.
The Lady 'Cats were still up
35-34 going into the final peri-
od, when everything seemed to
go wrong. Off-balance on a
rebound, Avalos fell and hit her
head, resulting in a trip to the
hospital. Then Tanksley fouled
out, leaving Hardee without a
pair of strong defenders and
vulnerable. Sebring took advan-
tage and forged ahead for the
48-40 win.
"We led most of the way. The
girls are playing really hard.
They are fun to watch. We will
have a good season," said varsi-
ty Head Coach Don Gray, who
remained at the hospital with
Avalos until her family arrived
to take her home. She is expect-
ed to be fully recovered.
Shannon Williams ended up
with 23 points for Sebring,
while Allie Mann added a
dozen points, the only two Lady
Streaks in double digits.


Louis again carried the brunt
for Hardee, with Avalos and
Carlton each adding six points,
Nichols four, Servin three, and
Tanksley and Massey each two
points.
Defense again played a
strong part. Louis had seven
rebounds and four steals.
Avalos had five rebounds, and
Servin and Massey each had
three. Carlton added three
steals.
Walker didn't have a JV
team, so the Hardee junior var-
sity was in its first game of the
year at Sebring on Thursday.
Hardee took a brief lead, before
Sebring's experience controlled
the game.
"I think we did well for our
first game of the season. Four of
these girls have never played
basketball before, five are
freshmen in their first high
school game and there are only
two returnees," said JV Coach
Ken Lelupold.
Freshmen Carlista Brown and
Chantel "Bailey" Carlton led
Hardee scoring with six and
four points respectively. Fresh-
man Carleigh Coleman and
sophomore Destany McClellan
each added two points and
freshman Alyssa Casso nailed
one-of-two at the free throw
line.
Other JV players are sophs
Stephanie Perez, Kashia Mos-
ley, Adna Metayer, Diana
Gomez and Allison Hunter and
freshman Edreina Martinez.

FRIDAY
Humble yourselves before
the Lord, and He will exalt
you.
James 4:10 (RSV)

Then the Lord God took dust
from.the ground and formed
a man from it. He breathed
the breath of life into the
man's nose, and man be-
came a living person.
Genesis 2:7 (NCV)

SUNDAY
For Who makes you different
from somebody else, and
what have you got that was
not given to you? And if any-
thing has been given to you,
why boast of it as if it were
something you had a-
chieved yourself?
SCorinthians 4:7 (NIV)


MONDAY
The Lord leads the humble
in what is right, teaching
them His way. The Lord
leads with unfailing love and
faithfulness all those who
keep His covenant and obey
His decrees.
Psalm 25:9, 10 (NLT)

TUESDAY
(Jesus said), "Bend your
necks to My yoke and learn
from Me; for I am gentle and
humble-hearted; and your
souls will find relief.

Wauchula Elementary School kicked off the annual Red Ribbon Week with a "Decorate.
Your Door" contest on Friday, Oct. 22. Doors were to have a drug-free theme. Missy
Kirkland's kindergarten class (top photo) was the winner, with the fishing theme "Don't
Get Hooked on Drugs." On Wednesday, Oct. 27, students were challenged to wear as
much red as possible to support a drug-free school. Missy Carlton (middle photo) had
all of her students show up in red to support the cause. And on Thursday, Oct. 28, the
challenge was to wear camouflage. Nicole Spencer's second graders (bottom photo)
were all dressed to "Join the Fight Against Drugs."

HAPPY THANKSGIVING-1621 AND 2010
Mention "The First Thanksgiving" and people immediately
think of Pilgrims in dark clothes with big white collars and bright-
ly dressed Native Americans gathered for a feast at Plymouth,
Mass.
The year was 1621 and they spent three days celebrating the
survival of the English settlement after a successful harvest. Of
course, folks from Virginia might argue that English settlers there
had conducted their own Thanksgiving two years earlier. Still, tra-
dition is a powerful teacher, and today Americans recognize that
gathering of 53 Pilgrims and 90 members of the Wampanoag tribe
who shared venison, turkeys and a variety of other dishes includ-
ing pumpkins (though probably not in pies) as the basis of our own
holiday customs.
There's no doubt that the new arrivals had reason to be grate-
ful-to God, to the native people and to each other. They had lost
about half their number to sickness and to hardship aboard the
Mayflower and while they established their colony, yet they were
already beginning to prosper. These determined people had come
to the shores of America like so many after them to find a place
where they could worship freely. Over the next two centuries, the
desire for freedom and self-determination which was so vital to the
colonists would lead to a revolution and the founding of a new
nation.
In 1789, the United States of America was just finding its way
with the establishment of the Constitution and the election of
George Washington as the first president. Before the year was over,
Washington issued a Thanksgiving Proclamation: "Whereas it is.
the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty
God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly
to implore his protection and favor-and whereas both Houses of
Congress have by their joint Committee requested me 'to recom-
mend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiv-
ing and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful
hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by
affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of
government for their safety and happiness."'
But how many of us actually acknowledge "with grateful'
hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God"-whether on
Thanksgiving or any other day? Do we really appreciate our coun-
try? Our community? Our family? Do we let those around us know
just how much they mean to us?
All too often we get so caught up thinking about ourselves, our
needs, even our accomplishments. We take the blessings-large
and small-from our Creator as well as the everyday generosity
that comes from other people for granted. So this year when we sit
down at the holiday table with our loved ones, let's take a moment
to really say "Thanks!"
"Expressing gratitude for the gifted nature of our existence
frees us from a delusion that cripples us with arrogance," says
Father Stephen Rehrauer, C.Ss.R., a professor of moral theology,
writing in Liguorian magazine. "Thanking God before we eat isn't
for God's benefit; it's a prayer of blessing.We'do it to remind our-
selves of a truth we so easily forget: We have all been and contin-
ue to be the recipients of the unearned love of God and the work of
others. As individuals and as a nation, as a truly good and moral
people, may we this year be truly grateful for what we have
received-for all these things and for all these people who are the
tangible ways in which God continues to bless us."
We don't have to travel to a new land to find God's blessings
or a reason to be grateful. We just have to open our eyes and our
hearts.


Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, the best times in college football are com-
ing now. Thanksgiving Weekend is always rivalry weekend. The
games we anticipate all year are here! Bragging rights for the next
365 days! Who doesn't like Florida against FSU, Alabama and
Auburn, the Egg Bowl between Ole Miss and Mississippi State,
Ohio St. and Michigan and the "Backyard Brawl" between Pitt and
West Virginia? These and many more are coming at you this week-
end.
The Gators avoided any letdown against Appalachian St. Now,
the big game at Doak waits. USF could have made inroads toward
the Big East Championship but let Pitt slip away with a 17-10 win.
West Virginia will have to beat Pitt to take the BCS spot next week-
end in the "Backyard Brawl." The Mountaineer defense has al-
lowed only 5 touchdowns in the last 7 games.
The Hardee Wildcats finished the season with some success
and lots of optimism for 2011. The Cats won 3 straight in the sec-
ond half of the season including the big game against DeSoto while
making the playoffs again. They played a respectable game
against Tampa Jesuit. The JV team and HJH teams finished unbeat-
en in 2010. The future is bright for the Hardee Wildcats.
The Boise State program got a lift in schedule news this past
week. The boys with the blue field will come east to face Georgia's
Bulldogs in Atlanta in 2011. They play Ole Miss in 2014 as well.
Along with moving to the Mountain West, maybe they will garner
some national respect toward a BCS Title if they continue their
winning ways.
Now let's look at this Week's Bill O' Fare ...
1. Florida at FSU-If there was a year for FSU to get a win,
it is 2010. This game will come down to wifl. Who wants it more?
Florida 27 FSU 24.
2. West Virginia at Pitt-The Backyard Brawl is won by the
visiting team most of the time. No reason for that trend not to con-
tinue. West Virginia 27 Pitt 17.
3. Auburn at Alabama-Bama has been waiting to take the
headlines away from Auburn. Looks like a Tide Roll from here.
Alabama 31 Auburn 27.
4. Colorado at Nebraska-Huskers have no trouble. Nebras-
ka 41 Colorado 21.
,5. Boise St. at Nevada-This is the week's stunner. Nevada
48 Boise St. 41.
6. Tulane at Marshall-Herd finishes big on senior day.
Marshall 35 Tulane 24.
7. Texas A&M at Texas-Can the Longhorns get any salvage
this season? Aggies smell blood in the water. Texas A&M 30 Texas
20.
8. Louisville at Rutgers-Charlie Strong goes bowling in his
first season. The Cardinals defense is very solid. Louisville 33
Rutgers 24.
9. Arizona at Oregon-Ducks get a test but survive. Oregon
37 Arizona 27.
10. SMU at East Carolina-Pirates get the Mustangs' best
shot but still sink them. ECU plays tough at home. ECU 35 SMU
31.
11. Michigan at Ohio St.-This should put the last nail in
Rich Rods coaching coffin. Wonder where he ends up in 2011?
SOhio St. 48 Michigan 21.
12. N.C. St. at Maryland-Wolfpack pulls out a close one.
NCSU 31 Maryland 29.
13. Virginia at Virginia Tech-Would be nice to see the Cavs
pull this one out but there is little chance, This Hokie team lost to
James Madison but will win the ACC. VPI 44 UVA 17.
14. LSU at Arkansas-Hogs turn the tables on LSU as Mallet
throws for a bunch of yards. Miles is the luckiest coach in college
football but it runs out here. Arkansas 31 LSU 17.


15. USF at Miami-Bulls could not beat Pitt at home much
less the Canes away. The bowl game is ahead but this might not be
pretty. Miami 34 USF 14.
16. UCF at Memphis-Knights will have no problem with
hapless Tigers. UCF 44 Memphis 10.
17. South Carolina at Clemson-Gamecocks rule the
Palmetto State. Maybe Spurrier will surprise even more in post
season. South Carolina 38 Clemson 17.
18. Tampa at Baltimore-Bucs face a tough defense. Ravens
24 Bucs 14.
19. Miami at Oakland-Tough loss again for the Fish. Raiders
27 Miami 21.
20. New England at Detroit-Good old Thanksgiving Day
game. New England 34 Detroit 17.


Greetings from Fort Green!
You never know about this
Florida weather, but I like to
wear shorts on Thanksgiving
and according to the TV this
will be possible and hopefully it
will be the same Christmas. I
remember all to well the Christ-
mas freezes of the '80s.
Fort Green filled over 100
shoeboxes for Operation Shoe-
box. This is a lot for our small
church but Carol Brown, Faye
Davis, Mike Davis and Dan
Duke worked hard with their
Wednesday night classes en-
couraging the youth to com-
pete. These boxes will possibly
be all some children receive for
Christmas. We should all be
thankful to have plenty to eat,
clothes and shelter. We are in-
deed blessed.
There are still quite a few in
need of prayer for sickness or
pending surgery. Mildred Coop-
er is under the weather with a
bad chest cold. At her age, any-
thing like this is bad. Ruth Mc-
Aabe is in the Sebring Hospital,
or was at the time of this typing,
for congestion in her lungs.
Charlton Sadler is going back
for more tests and will possibly
face open-heart surgery. I told
his wife this was a good thing if
they could repair it as some
people found out the problem
too late for surgery. I was giv-
ing her an example when my
late husband, Kay Silverman
had three bypasses. A person
who was in for tests the same


time we were and was leaving
the hospital and Kay told him
well he was lucky, no surgery,
but the man replied you are the
lucky one, mine is to far gone
for any help. That has stuck
with me and I try to use it to
encourage others.
Lynda Abbott is scheduled
for eye surgery on Dec. 1.
Sherman and I went to
Arbuckel Lake for a few days
fishing and relaxing before his
scheduled surgery on Dec. 2 fo?
kidney stones. I am not sure
about Chris Thompson and if
her son is still in the hospital
but regardless, please pray for
all of these.
Lichelle Griffis had a nice
surprise. Her Dad, Joe, and wife
Lisa came for a weekend visit.
They don't get down or over
often as they live in Abilene,
Texas.- He is a truck driver and
was able to include them on a
trip. She really enjoyed having
them and they came to the sing
on Saturday night and then to
Church Sunday morning.
There was too much going on
for the Saturday night sing.
There were not as many in
attendance as usual but it was a
good sing.
A Methodist Cemetery work-
day has been scheduled for Jan.
8. This is far enough notice for
you to mark your calendar and
come on out for a good morning
of work and fellowship.
Please remember to pray for
each other and our country.
