Crashes Result

In 2 Fatalities


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of Sunday accidents
claimed the lives of two people.
One occurred in the morning,
taking the life of a 64-year-old
man. The other was in the early
afternoon, increasing the 2010
accident death toll in Hardee
County to 10, with a month left
in the year.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, the first
incident happened on Crews-
ville Road, about one mile west
of Johnston Road, when Terry
Grube, 64, of Naples was driv-
ing his 2006 BMW motorcycle
east. He had just passed a trac-
tor trailer and was approaching
a curve in the road.
As he entered the curve, he
appeared to lose control and
veered to the left shoulder
where he struck a tree. He was
wearing an approved motorcy-
cle helmet but was pronounced
dead at the scene. The road was
closed for about an hour during
the ensuing investigation, re-
ported crash investigator Tpr.

Billboard Campaign Uses Local Photos


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The nationally known drama,
"The Story of Jesus" has en-
tered even another venue, bill-
boards.
Rev. Mike Graham, pastor of
Real Life Church, and the pro-
ducer of "The Story of Jesus,"
grabbed the opportunity to
assist churches in Polk County
with their stand against the
inroads of atheism there.
He joined a three-prong
group in the effort to inundate
Polk County with the message
of Jesus Christ during the
Christmas season. Billboards
went up around Lakeland and
other parts of Polk 'County on
Saturday, countering those of
the Atheists of Florida.
The ministry was the brain-
child of Dr. Richard Gerings-
wald, a Lakeland businessman
and missionary, founder of the
Jamaica Bible College in
Kingston, Jamaica. He has been
on FOX 13 news and in open


forum public debates with the
Atheists of Florida.
Several churches in Polk
County gathered to form Gath-
eringMinistries.com, The
Christian Churches of Polk
County, willing to sponsor the


billboards.
Enter Lamar Sign Co.. owner
of many of the billboards'and
the project was almost com-
plete.
Except for pictures for the
billboards. That's where Gra-


ham got into the effort. He went
through 350 pictures of the far-
reaching three-hour drama "The
Story of Jesus" and culled out
photos they wanted.

Hardee veterans service officer Larry Pelton reports there were
9,750,103 military deaths in World War I, which lasted from July
1914 to November 1918. About 65 million personnel participated
in the war.
There are three verified WW I veterans, all 109, from the
Allied Forces still living: Frank Woodruff Buckles of Charles
Town, West Virginia; Claude Stanley Choules of Australia; and
Florence Beatrice Green of Norfolk, England.
Buckles was an ambulance driver near the Western Front and
was later a civilian prisoner in World War II. Choules was a seaman
in the Royal Navy and served in both world wars. Green was a
waitress for the Women's Royal Air Force.

John R. Alexander, board chairman of Alico Inc., a land man-
agement company headquartered in LaBelle, now lives in
Frostproof, but he and his family lived in Hardee County from
1961 to 1966.
He helped fight against the proposed Amendment 4 which was
soundly defeated in the November 2 election. The amendment
would have hampered growth and property rights in Florida.
Florida Farm Bureau, developers, real estate company owners,
many landowners, and chambers of commerce also opposed
Amendment 4.
His son is State Sen. J.D. Alexander, a Republican who is the
top man for the state budget. The senator hopes to find some U.S.
17 four-laning money soon.

A Hardee County grandmother has reached out for help in rais-
ing one of her grandsons, age 12. He is exhibiting problems with
his behavior and attitude. Her letter has been forwarded to a local
church and to the local Peace River Center for Personal Develop-
ment.
Life can be very challenging for children and grownups as
well.

The Heartland Chorale and Symphony "Treasures of
Christmas" will be held Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Hardee Agri-
Civic Center and on Sunday at 4 p.m. at South Florida Community
College in Avon Park.

The annual Hardee County Christmas Parade sponsored by the
Chamber of Commerce will be held in downtown Wauchula on
Saturday at 6 p.m.

The building under construction east of Aaron's Rentals and
south of Wal-Mart will be the new home for Heartland pediatrics
soon.

William Gibson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel recently
wrote Social Security is solvent until 2037 when tax revenues then
would cover only 78 percent of expenses. The fix is fairly simple
by increasing taxable wages above the current limit of $106,800
and gradually increasing the full retirement age to 68 by 2050 and
to 69 by 2075.
The formula could be changed to reduce benefits for rich peo-
ple, he wrote. Social Security is now 75 years old.

President Barack Obama has proposed freezing the pay for
most federal employees for two years as a partial way of dealing
with the budget deficit and national debt.


CRASH
Continued From 1A
area accident became the ninth
fatality in the county.
Later on Sunday, a collision
at the REA Road and U.S. 17
intersection resulted in one
death.
According to the FHP report,
Jose Rosales-Garcia, 64. of
Wauchula, was driving his 2000
Oldsmobile west on REA Road
and entered the intersection into
the path of a southbound 2005
Winn RV driven by Thomas
Nuccio, 58, of Cape Coral.
The front of the RV struck the
passenger side of the vehicle,
resulting in the death of the pas-
senger, Aurora Rosales-Carrill,
63, also of Wauchula. The driv-
er, Rosales-Garcia, was trans-
ported to Florida Hospital,
where he was treated and
released. Neither Thomas Nuc-
cio, nor his passenger, Darlene
Nuccio, 57, also of Cape Coral,
was injured.
Both vehicles were badly
damaged, the Oldsmobile with
$6,000 damage and the RV
about $5,000. A portion of the
highway was closed for 90 min-
utes during the investigation.
Only one mountain peak.
on the North American
*continent is over 20,000
feet. The southern peak of

DRIVE FOR CASH


PHOTO BY NANCY DAVIS
Wauchula Elementary School recently received $870 from Chrysler's "Drive for the
Kids" program. The fundraising event was held in August during "Meet Your Teacher
Night" at the school, with the help of Alan Jay Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Wauchula. The
dealership brought a Town & Country minivan to the event, contributing $10 to the
school for each parent or guest who took a test drive inr the award-winning model. A
total of 87 adults did. Kevin Hanchey, general manager of Alan Jay Chrysler Dodge
Jeep, termed the minivan demonstration "mutually beneficial," and added, "Parents
are genuinely interested in testing the minivan, and we are happy to help raise extra
dollars for the school. We all work together for the kids. Everyone has a great time."
Here, Alan Jay's Dave Hall (left) and Hanchey present the check to Principal Sonja

and a golden Bengal tiger
named Zulu. Zulu is a very
important aspect of the refuge,
as he was the motivation for its
creation.
Zulu suffered a fractured
pelvis in an accident at his pre-
vious owner's facility in 1997.
Zulu was only a few months old
and, because of the resulting
medical expenses, he was at
risk of being euthanized. The
Stoners lived in Hollywood, in
South Florida, at the time and
were not permitted to keep such
an animal, but they offered to
pay the medical bills.
When Zulu had healed, he
was returned to his owner.
The Stoners took action,
selling their home and most of
their belongings in a "charity
benefit" moving sale, then find-
ing the 70 acres in Hardee
County and moving here. They

the two entered the store at
1102 U.S. 17 S. at about 1 in the
afternoon., While the woman,
Samantha Carrion, looked at
jewelry with the clerk at the
front of the store, Briseno
allegedly went to the back,
pried open a glass-case door
and emptied the gold charms it
held into his pocket.
The theft, however, was dis-
covered immediately and au-
thorities were notified and
given a description of the pair
and the vehicle they occupied,
the chief said.
As Ofc. Amy Drake pro-
cessed the crime scene, Brock,
who was on patrol, spotted the
suspect vehicle and stopped it at
Heard Bridge Road and Alice
Street. As Brock approached
the driver, he allegedly saw the
front-seat passenger, Briseno.
with a bag of marijuana he tried
to hide and a bag with "Gold
Buyers at the Mall" written on
it.
Briseno was arrested, and an
ensuing search of the vehicle'
allegedly revealed a number of
gold charms in the "Gold
Buyers" bag, Beattie said.
The chief said Briseno admit-

their first enclosure, the tiger

Zulu came to the refuge when
his previous owner could not
afford to feed him any longer.
As a result of his accident,
Zulu still has digestive compli-
cations; which, in turn, results
in surgery and high veterinary
costs. He also requires special-
ized care in order to remain in
good health.
The rest of the animals in the
sanctuary have Zulu to thank
for their lifetime home. Among
these animals are the seven
cougars, Cheyenne, Thor, Ma-

did not know about it nor the
marijuana. She was not charged
in either crime, he said, but
does face a driving while

Heartland Gold reported the
value of the many charms
stolen at $1,600.
In the home burglaries, Jose
Figueroa, 18, of 1432 Lost
Acres Dr., Wauchula; Oracio
Francisco, 18, of 1413 Lost
Acres Dr., Wauchula; and
brothers Raul Vallejo, 18, and
Ramiro Vallejo, 16, both of 741
Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.,
Wauchula, have each been
charged with burglary and
grand theft counts.
Sheriff's Maj. Randy Dey

Dey said Wauchula police Lt.

of the baptism of Jesus, so had
to stage it, using the Peace
River and over 300 shots to get
it just right.
"No one had the pictures
we've got from 'The Story of
Jesus.' I just went through and
put them on jpeg for Lamar.
They made them billboard size
with the printing needed. Our
name doesn't appear on them,"
said Graham.
However, because of the
cooperation, Lamar gave Gra-
ham use of a lighted billboard
along I-4 near Exit 33, telling
thousands of drivers of "The
Story of Jesus," for its 2011
running, five weekends from
March 25-26 through April 22-
23.
"There are 30,000 to 70,000
cars a day going past there. It's
fantastic exposure and will only
add to how well-known this
is," commented Graham enthu-
siastically. People have come
from all over the state and
nation to see the local effort, the
only Passion Play in the state
now.
"The timing is good. The bill-
boards will be up for the entire
month of December, and longer
if no one else wants those par-
ticular billboards.
"We do our mass mailing for
the spring production in Janu-


ary, sending notices or bro-
chures to 12,000 churches, sen-
iors organizations and travel
organizations from Miami to
Ocala," explained Graham.
"It's a huge production but
low budget. Wejust had our fall
banquet for the 250 cast and
crew members of it. A lot of
people are committed and vol-
unteer in one way or another.
We have people come from sur-
rounding counties, some quite
distances to rehearse and be
part of it for all five weekends.
It's wonderful the help we get,"
said Graham, who has taken it
from a small church play to the
huge Cattlemen's Arena, where
it has grown leaps and bounds
over the last 15 years it has been
there.
He and his group, the Power
& Light Production Co., have a
long-range goal to build an
amphitheater, a combined re-
treat/concert venue which could
be used by the community for
their needs as well. They have a
10-year renewable lease on the
property off SR 66 at Davis
Ranch Road, but economic


downturn has delayed funding
to develop it. The plan is to
have a 2,000-seat main floor,
stage, food service or cafeteria,
restrooms and offices, eventual-
ly adding sports fields.
Graham would like to expand
to three productions a year, ad-
ding the stories of Moses and
Noah to "The Story of Jesus,"
which he revises a bit each year
to keep it interesting and bibli-
cally accurate.
Currently, it takes an army of
volunteers to quickly construct
the 250-foot panoramic set at
the Cattlemen's Arena when the
county fair ends each spring.
"They have been so willing,
bring their equipment and get
going, but it sure would be great
not to have to stage and take it
down and store it each year,"
said Graham.
Meanwhile, he goes on,
reaching out to assist other min-
istries, while maintaining the
church, the production, and the
retreat plans in separate pock-
ets, keeping the focus of mak-
ing Christ the Savior known to
as many people as possible.


Mix a little foolishness with your prudence; it's good to
be silly at the right moment.

ANNE C. TAYLOR
Anne C. Taylor, 71, of
Wauchula, passed away com-
fortably, in the presence of
some of her best friends on
Friday, Nov. 19, 2010, at Har-
dee Manor Care Center.
Born on O ct. 10, 1939, in
New .York City, N.Y., she
came to Wauchula from
Texas.
She went to college at Hinds
Community College near
Morton, Miss., then complet-
ed college at Delta State
College. During the summers,
she worked at Estes Park in

doors, which was different
from her city upbringing. She
began her teaching career in
Biloxi, Miss. Anne taught at
various schools, spending 20
years in Wauchula. She taught
first grade, then kindergarten
and finally Pre-K; as she got
older, the kids got younger.
She won a "Teacher of the
County" award-a tribute to
her desire and inner strength.
Much of the essence of
Anne's soul can be found in
the song, "3 Wooden Crosses"
by Randy Travis, portions of
which describe Anne as a
teacher, and the chorus her
legacy.
Survivors include her
brother Richard Taylor and
wife Alix of Massachusetts;
and. niece Laura Taylor of

Wauchula Watch
By Ofc. Amy Drake
Wauchula Police Department


DON'T LET THE GRINCH STEAL CHRISTMAS!
The Wauchula Police Department is reminding residents about
the recent residential and vehicle burglaries that have been occur-
ring in parts of Wauchula.
This holiday season, don't let the spirit of giving lull you into
giving burglars a better chance to do their dirty work. Crooks love
the holidays as much as everyone else, but chiefly because it's an
opportune time for crime.
Be a good neighbor and watch out for one another during this
holiday season. Officers urge citizens to report all suspicious activ-
ity to your local Police Department and Sheriffs Office. What you
see and report could make a world of difference in someone's hol-
iday.
The holidays are a good time to update or create your home
inventory. Take photos or make a video of items, and create a list
of descriptions and serial numbers. If your home is burglarized,
having a detailed inventory can help identify stolen items and make
insurance claims easier to file. Make sure things like TVs, VCRs,
stereo equipment, cameras, camcorders, sports equipment, jewelry,
silver, computers, home office equipment and power tools are on
the list. Remember to check it twice!
Officers also suggest the following crime prevention tips to
reduce your chance of becoming a victim:

Residences
1.) Keep you garage doors closed and locked.
2.) Always activate your alarm when away from home.
3.) Lock all doors and windows when away from home.
4.) Make sure you have adequate lighting around your home.

Vehicles
1.) Do not leave or store valuables in the open. Take them with
you.
2.) Lock your doors and activate your alarm system.
Do your part to make the holidays safe and happy times for
everybody-except criminals. Last but not least, don't let holiday
stress get the best of your holiday spirit. Make time to get together
with family, friends and neighbors.
Happy holidays from the Wauchula Police Department.


DANCE!-Bailey's Dance Academy, owned by Bailey Rae
Knight, has stepped its way into Hardee County.
In the past, Knight competed on the Mamie's School of Dance
competition team. During that time, she garnered several awards in
national competitions. She has even danced on the Holland
American Cruise Lines.
Before opening her own studio, Knight also was an instructor
and choreographer at another local dance studio. In addition, she
took a class with famed dance choreographer Mandy Moore.
Overall, she says, she has gained over more than 10 years of
dancing experience.
After acquiring the skills she needed and seeing what it was
like to run a dance studio, Knight made the decision to open her
own. She is the only instructor at this time and conducts five class-
es each day, teaching ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical and clogging.
After seeing which students are really serious about dancing,
she plans to create a competition team.
Knight holds classes from 4 to 5:45 p.m. on Monday. On
Tuesday lessons are taught from 4 to 7:45 p.m. Dance sessions are
scheduled from 3 to 6 p.m.
She is willing to teach students from the ages of 3 and up, but
currently only has students from 3 to high-school age.
Bailey's Dance Academy is located at 610 U.S. 17 N. For more
information, call 773-6367.

Teen Block Party


At Y Next Week


By HAILEY SELPH
For The Herald-Advocate
The YMCA will be holding a
block party next Wednesday at
the new Burton building at 132'
S. 10th Ave. in Wauchula.
The party will begin at 5 p.m.
and end by 8.
The Burton Building was cre-
ated after the old Youth Center
was destroyed by hurricane and
other damages. The YMCA
wanted to make sure that the
replacement building would last
for years to come.
The names of those who
donated money toward con-
struction of this new building'
can be seen on a sign inside it,
on bricks on the ground, and on
Sa plaque outside of the building.
The reason behind it all is to
give local youth a positive alter-
native.
"Our area has been plagued
with things like teen pregnancy
and drug abuse at higher rates
than some of the other counties
Sin Florida," notes YMCA Di-
rector Calvin Bates. "We are


hoping that by creating a posi-.
tive alternative, some of the
kids who don't have something
to do, this will give them a fun
environment to come to.
"Just anything that is positive
and uplifting," he adds. "We
want to teach them to be in-
volved in the community and to
want to make an impact on the
community in a positive way."
This occasion is the first
event being held for the youth.
The block party is a free event.
People may wish to bring


pFI


9 .


money with them for food and
drinks.
Also at the block party.will
be live entertainment organized
by One Student Ministries. The
Y also plans on having several
games, such as a dunk tank,
video games and possibly a vol-
leyball tournament.
To find out more about the
block party, call 773-6445.
Anyone interested may also go

site at www.thehardeey.org.

Atchley/Bryant Lead Commission


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Annual reorganization held
few changes for the Hardee
County Commission.
At its meeting on Nov. 16,
before leaving for the three-day
Florida Association of Counties
meeting, the commission took
care of several items of busi-
ness, mostly dealing with the
new board and its activities.
The meeting began with
Circuit Judge Marcus Ezelle
administering the oath of office
to newly elected commissioners
Sue Birge and Grady Johnson
After a brief recess for photo
opportunities, election of chair-
man and vice chairman pro-
ceeded. Terry Atchley was re-
elected as chairman and Minor
Bryant as vice chairman. Atch-
ley said the commission faced a
lot of challenges in the new
visioning process and setting up
protocol and procedures for it.
He, Bryant, and the rest of the
,commission received congratu-
lations from Hugh Bradley,
clerk to the board, Property
Appraiser Kathy Crawford and
Sheriff Arnold Lanier, all
expressing commitment to
work together for the good of
the benefit of the county.
Reynolds Allen, county labor
attorney reviewed the basics of
ithe county manager form of
government, his and the com-
mission's scope of authority,
Immunity for acting within that
scope and non-immunity for
acting outside that scope.
Allen also reviewed the high-
lights of the personnel rules and
regulations, which he helped
draft, antidiscrimination, affir-
mative actions, union contracts,
collective bargaining and
touched on the Sunshine Law.
Later in the meeting, the
commission viewed a 30-
minute video provided by Ken
Evers, county attorney, careful-
ly explaining the ins and outs of
the Sunshine Law, including
face-to-face contacts, mail, e-
mail, phone calls, etc.
Volunteers, advisory commit-
tees and the commission are all
subject to the Sunshine Law
and can suffer penalties by not
abiding by it.
Commission assignments as
liaisons or members of commit-
tees and councils were also
reviewed. Birge will pick up
those from her predecessor
Nick Timmerman, while Grady
Johnson took those of Bobby
Ray Smith.
District I's Bryant will serve
as the local transportation and
the legislative liaison and to the
Central Florida Regional
Planning Council, Small Coun-
ty Coalition, Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
Heartland Water Alliance and
Peace River Basin Management
Advisory Committee.
District II's Birge is Budget
& Finance liaison, and to the
Health Care Task Force, Rural
Health Network, Community
Recreation Complex, Housing
Authority and Homeless Coa-
lition.
District III's Atchley is
Industrial Development liaison,
a member of the Industrial,
Development Authority and.
also sees to Transportation
Disadvantaged, Library Heart-
land Cooperative and is alter-
nate for four other groups.
District IV's Grady Johnson
is responsible as Mining and
Agriculture liaison, and for the
Community Traffic Safety
Team, Heart of Florida Com-
munity Alliance and Airport
Task Force as well as alternate
to SWFWMD.
District V's Dale Johnson is
Public Safety and Municipal
liaison, and also handles the
Heartland Workforce Invest-
ment Board, Florida Heartland
Rural Economic Development


Initiative, Drug Abuse Preven-
tion, Teen Pregnancy Preven-
tion and Tampa Bay Partner-
ship.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved bonds for the two
new commissioners.
--approved a resolution rec-
ognizing Marsha Rau for 34
years of service to the county, in
various nursing capacities and
ending as Hardee County
Health Department administra-
tor, bringing many innovations,
grants and services to that
department. Rau said it had
been "a privilege and due to a
wonderful dedicated staff.
Besides Hardee County is
home."
-reviewed and approved the
legislative packet to be present-
ed at the legislative delegation
meeting at 2 p.m. pn Dec. 17
when Sen. J.D. Alexander and
newly elected Rep. Ben Albrit-'
ton, or their representatives,
will make their annual visit to
the county. The county. will
focus on its needs for four-lan-
ing the rest of U.S. 17, water
and wastewater expansion in
Wauchula Hills, and needed
renovations at the courthouse.
Economic Development Di-
rector Bill Lambert asked that
legislators be asked to support
the establishment of a trans-
portation authority and prom-
ised to update the commission
on it during the Dec. 9 commis-
sion meeting.
-approved, after lengthy
discussion and on a 4-1 vote,
hiring Kimley-Horn planning
group to assist with the sustain-
able Hardee visioning process
which began with a communi-
ty-wide meeting a couple of
months ago. Bryant objected
that it would be a mostly wast-
ed $115,000 for another plan
that would sit on the shelf like
the one done after Hurricane
Charley.
Kimley-Horn is doing a simi-
lar one for the city of Wauchula,
and the county will "piggy-
back" on that effort to develop
the data needed on the strengths
and weaknesses of the county. It
will include several communi-
ty-wide meetings to get a good
idea of what people want, in the
county's future.
Atchley said "If we put it on
the shelf, they should vote us all
out of office. Birge agreed. "It
is our responsibility to keep it
off the shelf and alive."
-received the first monthly


mining staff report on its con-
tacts and activities on mining in
Hardee County, including dam
and water quality inspections.
-ratified the public employ-
ees union contract for the fiscal
year which began Oct. 1. Be-
cause of the financial crunch,

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
What You says goes, God,
and says, as permanent as
the heavens. Your truth
never goes out of fashion;
it's as up-to-date as the
earth when the sun comes
up. Your Word and truth are
dependable as ever.
Psalm 119:89-90 (The Message)
FRIDAY
Jesus said to him, "I am the
Way, the Truth, and the Life;
no one come to the Father
(God) but by Me . If love
Me, you will keep My com-
mandments."
John 14:6, 15 (RSV)
SATURDAY
Moses prayed, "If You are
please with me, teach me
Your ways, so I may know
You and continue to find
favor with You." ... The Lord
replied, "My Presence will
go with you, and I will give
you rest."
Exodus 33: 13a-14 (NIV)
SUNDAY
This is how much God loved
the world: He gave His Son,
His one and only Son. And
this is why; so that no one


need be destroyed; by
believing in Him, anyone can
have a whole and lasting
(eternal) life.
John 3:F(The Message)

MONDAY
Seek the Lord while you can
find Him. Call on Him now
while He is near. Let the peo-
ple turn from their wicked
deeds. Let them banish from
their-minds the very thought
of doing wrong! Let them'
turn to the Lord that He may
have mercy on them; Yes,
turn to our God, for Hie will
abundantly pardon.
Isaiah 55:6-7 (NLT)

TUESDAY
Then I heard every created
thing in heaven and on earth
and under the earth and in
the seas, all that is in them,
crying, "Praise and honor,
glory and might, to Him who
sits on the throne, and to the
Lamb of God for ever apd
ever."
Revelation 5:13 (NEB)

WEDNESDAY
Pride will ruin people, but
those who are humble will
be honored... Being afraid
of people can get you into
trouble, but if you trust the
Lord, you will be safe.
Proverbs 29:23, 25 (NCV)

No man is ever old enough
to know better.

Bill and Pat Kenworthy, hal-
ing from Mt. Morris, Mich., for
24 years. Bill and Pat came to
our park as snowbirds and have
been work campers here in the
past, and worked for two years.
They ended up being full-time
residents since 2002, because
we offer many activities and the
people are so friendly they
wouldn't want to be at any other
park
They have been married for
44 years, heading for that 45th
year in January. They are
blessed with three children, five
grandchildren. three step-
grandchildren and three great-
grandchildren, with another one
on the way within two weeks.
Bill's interest was woodcarv-
ing for many years, but he has
branched out and really enjoys
wood burning, and also enjoys
golf. Pat makes jewelry and
sells it at our craft shows, cro-
chets, reads, and enjoys our
swimming pool.
We are proud to announce
Bill and Pat will be our new
chairmen for the trips. They
have been a great asset to our
park and congratulations on
your new position. Since going
on a cruise last season and en-
joying it so much, they thought
they could help others with get-
ting these trips organized and
taking a cruise being made easy
for everyone to enjoy.
We welcome you aboard!

December 2, 2010, The Herald-Advocate 3B


Greetings from Fort Green! I
hope you all had a great
Thanksgiving. We are privi-
leged to live in the USA and
even in Hardee County.
Thanksgiving is celebrated
by many in so many different
ways. Faye Chancey said her
entire family would be enjoying
the day at the home of daughter
Tammy and Dustyn Waters.
Her family includes sister Jewel
Timmons and family from
Mulberry, Doris Winegard and
family from Avon Park, Nadine
Albritton and family from
Bowling Green and brother
Danny Keene and his wife,
Bonnie, but they would eat at
Resthaven with her mother,
Betty Carlton, and then come
on out to Fort Green to be with
the family. People do not realize
it, but they are blessed to have
such a large family with so
many siblings still alive and the
desire to get together.
I was talking to Fay Evors
and she and her siblings and
families that could were meet-
ing in Kissimmee Lake Park for
the day.
Brother Steve and Tara Mc-
Gaughey enjoyed their son vis-
iting from Kentucky.
Byron Allison said about 50
members of his family gathered
at Hardee Lakes for their feast.
He said they could not fish
since it was Thursday but they

really enjoyed the day, eating,
playing games, visiting with
each other and enjoying the
beautiful area.
Elizabeth Powell said her
mother and Wendy and others
came over from the Tampa area
and they all enjoyed being
together and, naturally, having
too much to eat!
Sherman said he could re-
member his childhood, and they
would go to the woods with his
grandparents, Vashti and Albert
Abbott, along with other family
members. They would fish and
cook swamp cabbage, ribs and
all the other goodies. These are
good memories.
Mary Samuels said they had
lots of company, and the many
cars in the yard could attest to
that. Donald said they all ate too
much but it was a good day!
We enjoyed the day eating
with Avie and family. T.K. was
off work for the day and Avis
joined us. She brought the mus-
tard greens, and this dish is
always delicious.
Margie Albritton and family
enjoyed not cooking but letting
a local restaurant do the work.
Daughters Tisha Crews and
family from Arcadia and Steph-
anie Reid and family from Fort
Green, along with Margie's
mother Betty Abbott, made up
the group.
Mr. and Mrs. Leo Blink opted

tor the easier restaurant way
also, but whatever families
choose, they just enjoy being
together and I am sure thankful
that we still live in a free coun-
try where you can assemble at
the location of your choice!
I feel sure Jean Sadler and
Amy Duke ate their dinner in
the restaurant. Charlton had
open-heart surgery on Wednes-
day and they did four bypasses.
He is in Sarasota but is doing
well and was even sitting up
Wednesday night.
I always get up early, do
whatever cooking I have not
completed and sit and watch the
Macy's Thanksgiving Day Pa-
rade!
Mildred Cooper is still sick
with that bad cold and has even
shared it with her daughter,
Gwen Albritton! Donna, Dale
and Jordan Chancey along with
Kimberly Godwin and family
from Fort Meade enjoyed the
day at Gwen's. Gwen's other
daughter, Sheri Himrod, was in
Alabama killing an eight- and
nine-point buck.
Chris Thompson was well
enough to be at church last Sun-
day morning as was her son,
Johnny Summerville.
Ruth McAbee is still in the
hospital in Sebring. Dorothy
Knight, who lives in North
Carolina now but used to live
and work in Hardee County, has
that dreaded "C-word" disease.
The doctors told her she has
about six months to live, but
Dot told them she knew the One
who really knew the length of
her life. Dot and I worked to-
gether at First Federal years

City Plans Next 5 Years


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
At its November meeting,
city officials approved major
projects for the next five years.
The five-year plan from
9010-11 through 2014-15, has
the completion of four projects
in the fiscal year which began
Oct. 1.
Current-year projects include
a five-year capital lease pur-
chase of a new solid waste
(garbage) truck, the new $1.165
million water well storage
building and pipeline and stor-
age tank construction and the
$175,000 wastewater plant
digester.
In subsequent years there are
plans for a lift station recon-


struction at Farr Field off South
Florida Avenue, a dog park at
the Peace River Park and a
West Main Street water loop.
These three, to be completed in
2011-2015, will be paid by
grants, loans or reserves.
After first reading, the updat-
ed capital improvements plan
will be sent to the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs,
which requires the annual
update, for its approval and
return to the commission for
second reading.
The capital improvement
plan is part of the Land
Development Plan and outlines
all the public facilities and serv-
ices the city provides and coop-
erating with the School Board,

Week ending November 28, 2010

WEATHER SUMMARY

Weather Summary: Dry conditions continued throughout-the
reference week with light precipitation. All of the Florida
Automated Weather Network stations reported under an inch of
rain. Temperatures during the past week averaged two to six
degrees above normal. Highs were in the 80s and lows were most-
ly in the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Jefferson, Baker, and Santa Rosa coun-
ties had at least one nighttime low below freezing during the week.
Field Crops: Field activity was minimal due to the holiday. In
Flagler County, growers were preparing to plant potatoes, but
planting may be delayed due to low soil moisture. Rice harvesting
has ended. Sugarcane harvest continued.

Vegetables: The winter vegetable season is promising.
Harvesting increased in correspondence with the holiday. Light
harvesting of endive and escarole has begun. Some tomato grow-
ers in west Florida completed harvesting for the season. In the cen-
tral region, tomato harvesting is expected to increase. Sweet corn
harvesting is expected to increase as growers begin the season.
Amicable weather is aiding strawberry development with light har-
vesting continuing. Vegetable movement included sweet corn,
cucumbers, eggplant, endive, escarole, okra, bell peppers, radishes,
squash, strawberries, tomatoes, and avocados.

Livestock and Pastures: Pastures were short and supplemen-
tal hay feeding was active. Cows were calving. In the Panhandle,
pasture condition ranged from very poor to excellent with most
poor to fair due to drought and seasonal cold temperatures. Winter
grazing was behind due to the lack of moisture. The cattle condi-
tion ranged from fair to excellent with most fair. Supplemental hay
was being fed. In the northern areas, the pasture condition ranged
from very poor to good with most fair. Cool season forage planting
was limited due to dry soil conditions, and less field activity due to
the Thanksgiving holiday. Most of the cattle were in fair to good
condition. In the central areas, pasture ranged from very poor to
excellent condition with most poor to fair. Cattlemen were feeding
hay. Most of the cattle were in fair to good condition. In the south-
western areas, pasture condition ranged from fair to excellent with
most in good condition. Lack of moisture was the first limiting fac-
tor on forage growth. Cattlemen were feeding hay and molasses.
The cattle condition varied from poor to excellent with most in
good condition. Statewide, the condition of cattle ranged from very
poor to excellent with most in good condition.

LOZANO AWARDS


COURTESY PHOTO
Bowling Green pro boxer Daniel Lozano, 21, picked up
the lion's share of boxer awards at the Georgia Fighters
annual banquet in mid-November. Along with his agent,
Shea Bailey Promotions Inc., six of the 16 awards were
claimed by Florida's best. There were fans' choice and
critics' choice in various category. Lozano (left in above
photo) accepts the fans and critics' choice awards as
breakthrough fighter of the year from David Oblas.
Lozano returned to the podium to receive the most influ-
ential boxing person fans choice award from Jose
Santiago. Shea Bailey accept the three awards for his
group. Lozano is taking a brief hiatus and expects to
return to boxing in January or early February and improve
his 7-0 pro record.

We don't know who we are until we see what we can do.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, the Thanksgiving Weekend Rival Games
are in the book. The Gators have a lot to digest after the FSU deba-
cle. Make no mistake, FSU took it to the Gators. UF now has a
bowl to prepare for which does allow a month of practice over non-
bowl teams. The time to get it right for 2011 is now. Hats off to
Jimbo Fisher and his staff on a job well done (SO FAR). Now, go
beat the VPI Hokies and take back the ACC Title.
The Ohio St. Buckeyes did their job on the field against
Michigan, now it is the Michigan administration's turn to do its job.
How long will Rodriguez be allowed to stay in Ann Arbor? Does
he coach the bowl game? The alumni want it done yesterday.
The Miami Hurricanes had no trouble making an announce-
ment after USF beat the "U". Randy Shannon was fired. The search
will be interesting. Miami is not in the same position they were in
the 1980s. The Big 3 in Florida now are UF, FSU and USF Could
Jon Gruden really end up there?
The Ohio St. President Gordon Gee spoke out on Non-BCS
teams getting a chance at the National Championship recently. He
took aim at TCU and Boise St. (which now is out with the Nevada
loss) when he said "We don't play the Weak Sisters of the Poor,"
Doctor Gee was president at West Virginia at one time and did a
good job. However, the image I have of him from pictures I have
seen is a man wearing a 1950s bow tie. Maybe that is fitting when
making statements about college football in 2010. Lost in the past,
when Ohio was relevant. Come on Doc, the Big 10 is this era's
"Weak Sisters of the Poor." How can anyone look at the Buckeyes'
schedule and see where it is any better than TCU or Boise? Face
it, Boys from the Rust Belt, your era is qver. Auburn will win the
5th straight title for the SEC if the Tigers can beat the Ducks. That
game, either way, is much anticipated by fans everywhere. Another
Big 10 team playing in the game and it is time to watch the paint
dry or the grass grow.
Now let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare ...
1. Connecticut at USF-Bulls can decide the Big East
Championship! If they win, West Virginia goes to the Fiesta Bowl.
If they lose, UConn goes as the champions. The only problem with
the Huskies representing the conference is fan following. West
Virginia takes 35,000-plus to bowl game while Connecticut would
be lucky to take 5,000. Bulls will be playing to secure a better bowl
spot and an 8-win season. USF 27 Uconn 24.
2. Rutgers at West Virginia-West Virginia has beaten Rut-
gers 19 straight years. They are a 21-point favorite to make it 20 on
Senior Day. Noel Devine needs 145 yards to top 1,000 yards again.
Should be a rout as Usual. West Virginia 44 Rutgers 7.
3. Pitt at Cincinnati-Bearcats have underperformed in 2010
while Pitt has ended with its usual fall apart in the second half of
the season. Could this be Wannstedt's last year at Pitt? Panthers


December 2, 2010, The Herald-Advocate 5B
will go bowling regardless. Pitt 27 Cincinnati 24.
4. ACC Championship: FSU vs. VPI-This game is a real test
for Jimbo. It can put FSU back on top in the ACC or send a team
that lost at home to James Madison to a BCS Bowl. FSU 31 VPI
27.
5. Oregon at Oregon St-Great old rivalry that is always fun
to watch. The Quack Attack is too much for the Beavers in 2010.
Oregon 52 Oregon St. 24.
6. Washington at Washington ST.-Huskies overtake the arch
rival. Washington 34 WSU 23.
7. USC at UCLA-another classic rivalry game but neither
team is nationally noted in 2010. Still, it is a classic to watch.
UCLA 33 USC 31.
8. MAC Championship: Miami vs. Northern Illinois-NIU
has the better record but look for Miami to take back the MAC.
Miami 35 Northern Illinois 21.
9. CUSA Championship: UCF vs. SMU-Knights will win
their first ever CUSA Title in football. Look for a lot of points
though. UCF 43 SMU 27.
10. Big 12 Championship: Nebraska vs. Oklahoma-Possibly
the last Oklahoma versus Nebraska game for a long time barring
any bowl matchup. Expansion has ruined another classic of college
football. Nebraska wins the Big 12 and leaves amid controversy.
Nebraska 38 Oklahoma 33.
11. Arizona at Arizona St.-Duel in the Desert will go the
Wildcats' way. Arizona 31 ASU 23.
12. SEC Championship Game: Auburn vs. South Carolina-
Auburn will not be denied a shot at a National Championship.
Auburn won the first game at home 35-27. Auburn 34 USC 23.
13. Illinois at Fresno St.-Zookers get a win. Illinois 30
Fresno St. 24.
14. UNLV at Hawaii-Rainbow Warriors over hapless Reb-
els. Hawaii 40 UNLV 21.
15. Middle Tennessee at FIU-FIU is on a roll. FIU 35 MTSU
20.
16. Utah St. at Boise St.-Ouch, play the Broncos after a
loss? BSU 58 Utah St. 13.
17. Atlanta at Tampa-Bucs bounce back. Tampa 27 Atlanta
24.

STONE SOUP


COURTESY PHOTO
Early in No'ember, the third-grade classes at North Wauchula Elementary School read the fable "Stone Soup," retold
by Jon J. uth. The students were inspired by the story of villagers who learned to share, so they collected canned
goods to conate to the Hardee Help Center. Students included (front row, from left) Bryce Rucker, Gabriel Aguilar,
Savannah Valletutti, William Rodriguez, Promise Nichols, Elijah Powell, Alex Morris, Trista Miller, Saul Arvizu and
Misael Ara'na; (back) Sandra Gomez, Mario Lopez, Ashley Estrada, Brianna Farias and Robert Cavazos.

AVOID HOLIDAY WEIGHT GAIN!
The average American gains one to two pounds during the hol-
iday season.
The issue isn't just the weight gain, but the fact that this
weight is never lost. Americans gain weight each holiday season,
maintain that weight throughout the year, and then put on more
pounds the next holiday season.
Gain two pounds every winter, and that equals 20 pounds in
10 years! Of course, avoiding holiday weight gain is often easier
said than done, right'?
How can we stop this cycle? The first step is to be realistic. It's
not likely that you will lose a large amount of weight over the hol-
idays. So, making drastic calorie cuts is not a realistic option.
Instead, set a personal goal of maintaining your current weight
through the end of the year. Make it your personal mission not to
gain excess pounds.
The fponder of Jazzercise, Judi Sheppard Missett, offers five
simple questions to ask yourself this holiday season to keep weight
gain at bay. Here they are:
i. What is my plan? Before the holidays even begin, make a
plan. Mark your calendar with pre-set appointments for exercising,
even if it is just walking for 30 minutes. Decide on your menus
ahead of time, and head to the produce section of your grocery
store to stock-up on fruits and leafy greens.
2. How can I get my co-workers to help out? Office settings
can be a catastrophe for nutritional eating during the holidays. So,
talk to your co-workers ahead of time. Ask them to agree that fat-
tening desserts and sugary treats will be kept in one section of the
office only. That way, you can easily avoid the route of temptation.
Maybe others in the office are struggling with maintaining their
weight also, and would welcome this strategy.
3. Why am I attending this party? When you think about it,
you generally don't attend a party strictly for the food. You're there
to spend time with your friends and family. So, focus on socializ-
ing. There's no reason to make three trips to the buffet when you're
engrossed in calorie-free conversation!
4. Am I getting my five-a-day? Eat five or more servings of
fruits and vegetables every day. The fiber in these low-calorie


foods will give your stomach a full sensation, so you're less likely
to chow-down on cakes, candies or crackers.
5. What are my favorite indulgences? It's OK to have a tasty
treat now and then. If you deprive yourself of everything, you're
more likely to binge itn a moment of weakness. So, pick your
favorites, and allow yourself those indulgences this holiday season.
Don't waste calories on a vending machine bag of chips when what
you're really craving is mom's homemade cherry pie!
I hope these few short tips will cause you to stop and think
about successfully managing your weight over the holidays:
Hopefully, you will prevent that average two-pound weight gain
during these heaviest eating times of the year!

By JULIE YANG
Special To The Herald-Advocate
My interview was with Chongyia

Q: When were you born?
A: Sept. 11, 1954.

Q: At what age did you start going
to school?
A: I start when I was only 7 years
old.

Q: How far did you go to
school?
A: About a mile.

Q: Did you ride the bus or did you
walk to school?
A: I walk to school.

Q: How much money did you have
with you on your way to school?
A: I didn't have any money to go to
school. It was a free school.

Q: Did you pay lunch money for
food or did you have to bring food to
school with you?
A: I have to bring food from home to
school.

Q: Did you go to school over the
weekends?
A: No, I only had to go to school
Monday through Friday.

Q: What subject did they teach
you?
A: They teach me ABCs, math, read-
ing, writing, garden, history, and they
told me to study everything about war.

Q: Did you have to wear different
clothes to school or did you have to
wear uniforms?
A: Yes, I have to wear uniforms to
school like a white shirt, sky blue short,
white shoes and white socks.

teacher?
A: Mr. Boom Tom.

Q: What year did you finish
school?
A: I didn't finish school. It was 1965,

Q: What was your dream when
you were small?
A: My dream was to become a sol-
dier.

Q: Did you go to work after you
finished school?

nursing my soldiers.

Q: What kind of job did you work
as?

soldier nurse when I was only 15 years
old.

Q: How much money did they pay
you?
A: They paid me $2 a month.

Q: Did you go to the war?
A: Yes, because the government in
Laos needed soldiers to help the
American people to fight North
Vietnam.

Q: What age were you when you
went to the war?
A: I was only 19 years old after I
quit my nursing.

Q: What were you in the war?
A: I was a soldier who shot at North
Vietnam seven days and seven nights.

Q: What year did you start going
to war and stop going to war?
A: Well, I start going to the war in
1965 and ended in 1975.

Q: When did you marry your
wife?
A: I married my wife in 1973.

Q: What year did you come to
America?
A: I came to America in 1979.

A SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER

MichAd A. Guido
MeCnM.GWV


Rushing down a steep hill in
California, while loaded with
propane, a truck driver discovered
his brakes had failed. Reaching for
his CB radio, he called'for help.
Close behind him was a highway
patrolman. Hearing his plight, he
pulled his car in front of the truck,
and started to slow down.
Realizing what the officer was
doing, the driver maneuvered his
truck until it rested against the
back bumperof the patrol car, and
they came to a stop without any
damage.
Near.you are others who are
rushing to destruction, and the
Bible says, "By all possible
means...sive some."
You will help them, won't you?

Visit us at: www. TheSower.com


4 n this season of Advent, the four Sundays before
Christmas, we celebrate an old truth, the coming
of Christ. As we light a new candle on the traditional
Advent wreath each week, we are reminded anew
to prepare for the arrival of something momentous.
Reflecting on an event that happened so long ago
call reveal to us a new understanding of how to live.
our lives today. Prepare for Christmas in advance
this Advent; attend your house of worship weekly.

Light One Candle
By Gerald M. Costello

VOLUNTEERS ON A MISSION
It all began, simply enough, with a community service project
in high school, helping out and doing whatever needed to be done
at a nursing home. Then as now, there was no shortage of chores
the young student was called on to undertake. And then, as she
recalls today, "little by little" she came to see how much the elder-
ly residents appreciated her care. Little by little, too, she began to
realize how important the work was. And thus were the first seeds
of a vocation born a vocation that would flourish, and one day
would affect the lives of thousands of others.
That girl of years ago was Joan Raber, the school was
Presentation High School in San Francisco, and the residence
where she volunteered was St. Anne's Home, conducted by the
Little Sisters of the Poor. Today Joan Raber is Mother Celine de la
Visitation, Mother General of the entire Little Sisters community -
nearly 3,000 strong, staffing 203 homes in 32 countries around the
world. These days, when she speaks of the value of volunteers to
the community and she does that often the thought that she was
once a volunteer herself is rarely far from her mind. If anything, it
deepens her appreciation of the important role that volunteers play.
The Little Sisters are quite an organization. They were found-
ed in France in 1839 by St. Jeanne Jugan (canonized by Pope
Benedict XVI last year), who took an elderly and destitute woman
into her home toted her up the stairs, the story goes and took
care of her there. That heroic act of volunteerism would be the
building block for what became the Little Sisters of the Poor, for
that one woman was followed by another, and then several, and
soon Jeanne needed more volunteers to help her and so a com-
munity was born.
The mission of the Little Sisters of the Poor is uncomplicated.
They take care of the elderly poor, period. They give them a lov-
ing home, prepare their meals, care for them if they're sick, and
journey with them when they're dying. In ah age of billion-dollar
deals and trillion-dollar budgets, they support themselves the old-
fashioned way: by begging. That's right, begging. They're serious
about it, going from business to business, merchant to merchant
with outstretched hands and loving hearts, grateful for gifts large
and small anything that helps the mission go forward.
And always, there are those volunteers. I caught up with
Mother Celine when she visited one of the Little Sisters' homes, in
northern New Jersey. "I can't say there's nothing to do," she told
me with a smile. "Our needs are more pressing than ever."
Maryknoll Father James Keller had something in common
with Jeanne Jugan; they both understood the value of volunteers.
"Alert, bright and generous" was the way Father Keller thought of
volunteers, relying on their help when he founded The
SChristophers in 1945 making them, in fact, a cornerstone of his
movement. Jeanne Jugan thought of them in the same way, and so
does Mother Celine today.
'There was a time," Mother Celine said to me, "when the
Little Sisters did everything..There were no employees, no volun-
teers we did it all. Now, of course, it's different. Now we rely
on others to help us." She paused before she added, "And we're so
thankful that they're there."

"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 around? 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 and have 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.
