Store Robbed



Saturday Night


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The peace of Christmas night
was broken in Wauchula by a
gunman who robbed a popular
convenience store.
No customers were in the
store at the time and the lone
employee was not hurt, city
police said.
But the armed robbery put
investigators and a tracking dog
out into the holiday calm of the
neighborhood surrounding the
Hess station at 101 W. Oak St.
They tracked the fleeing sus-

Normally a very busy place, a quiet time on Christmas night gave an armed thief the opportunity to rob the Hess con-
venience store at U.S. 17 and Oak Street in Wauchula.



U.S. 17 Complete In 5 Years?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Long-awaited, long-forgot-
ten, don't believe it, and similar
phrases don't adequately ex-
press the impending end to the
U.S. 17 four-lane saga.
Construction on four-laning
U.S. 17, which will begin early.
next fall, will be continued over
- the next five years. All of the
money has been set aside in the
state Department of Transpor-
tation (DOT) budgets for the
next five years.
Dot's fiscal year begins in


July. Ihat means contracts for
construction of the 5.4-mile
northbound segment, from
Sweetwater Road to Zolfo
Springs will be approved in late
June. About 90 days later, there
will be bulldozers out there,
said Susan King and Fred
Mears, DOT representatives
speaking to the Hardee County
Commission recently.
Actually, they came to bring
news of the new five-year plan
for DOT's District 1, which
includes Hardee County. The,
new plan, which adds year


2015-16, shows construction of
the 5.03-mile southern portion
of U.S. 17 (from Sweetwater
Road south to the DeSoto
County line) will begin in five
years and should be completed
by 2017.
The southern portion has
gone through several public
hearings on the design and
alignment. A shift further east
of the CSX railroad right-of-
way, will allow placement of a
noise barrier and minimize
impacts on the Brookside Bluff
Condominium Association


community and The Bluffs Golf
Course.
Charles Parker, a member of
the county Planning & Zoning
Board, asked about "fixing the
intersection of SR 66 and U.S.
17. It's a dangerous intersec-
tion, when trucks are trying to
turn out and have to go into the
southbound lanes to make that
turn." King said the intersection
was under review with the con-
struction which will start next
year.
King said "We're extremely

Looking Back at 2010


I lie Herald-Advocate begins a two-part review of the top stories of
2010. This week includes January through June.
January
Will the Hardee County Commission approve or deny the
request to put a regional landfill in southeast Hardee County? At a
public hearing, commissioners have to make that decision, basical-
ly.weighing the financial incentive host fee against the negatives of
taking over 10,000 tons of garbage weekly from a dozen other
counties.
A design change for four-laning U.S. 17 south of Zolfo
Springs will be further explained. First approved on July 11, 2006,
the design has been amended to "optimize the placement of a noise
barrier and minimize the impacts of the northbound lanes to the
Brookside Bluffs Condominium Association and the Bluffs Golf
Course."

How Low Did Temperatures Go?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
On a scale of I to 10, coldest*
to warmest, Hardee County
temperatures ranked right along
with major cities around the
country for its low temperatures
the last two days.
The county didn't have the
four-foot snows, stalled trains,
buses and planes, but it proba-
bly suffered even more damage


to its citrus, plants and cattle
industry.
Temperature reports around
the county have varied. At the
Range Cattle Station south of
Ona, reports were a low of 23
Monday night and low of 24
degrees on Tuesday night.
Grower/realtor Kenny San-
ders said on Monday night it
held at 30 degrees in Lemon
Grove and swung from 26 to 24


on Hollandtown Road. At Villa
Citrus near Lemon Grove, the
low reported was at 28 and it
was 22 in the Duette area.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier reported
a 22 and 24 in his southeast area
of the county.
According to Barbara Carl-
ton, director of the Peace Valley
Citrus Growers Association,

the Townsend Street area,
where the trail was lost, Capt.
Thomas Harris of the Wauchula
Police'Department said.
Harris said the store was.
robbed at 9:25 p.m. by a single
gunman.
The man entered the store
through the front door, went up
to the counter, pulled a gun
from the waistband of his pants,
and ordered the cashier to give
him all the money in the cash
drawer. Harris described.

Christmas Crash


Claims Life


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Christmas crash here has
left one person dead, the Florida
Highway Patrol said.
Authorities have yet to posi-
tively identify the driver or to
determine the year and make of
the vehicle involved, according-
to a report filed by crash inves-
tigator Tpr. Jay A. Spencer and
homicide investigator Cpl.
L.M. Smith Jr.
According to the report, the
crash occurred at about 1:35


a.m. Saturday on County Road
664A, a short distance north of
Boyd Cowart Road.
The driver was headed north-
bound on CR 664A in a van,
and was about 1,000 feet north
of the intersection with Boyd
Cowart Road when the vehicle
traveled across the roadway and
onto the west shoulder.
The driver returned to the
pavement and crossed back
over the center line, the troopers
said, before overcorrecting and

Holiday Warning!
Fireworks, drunk driving and guns are the
hazardous trio that ruins New Year's Eve.
"Don't get yourself in trouble by shooting
off fireworks, driving after drinking or firing
guns into the air. Fire-Rescue gives a red-flag
alert-conditions are bad for any sort of fires,"
cautions Capt. Brett Dowden of the Bowling
Green Police.
"I hope everybody has a safe and happy
holiday weekend, but be mindful of these
things," said Dowden.




What's In Store

For 2011 ?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A synopsis of happenings ex-
pected in 2011 begins in this
week's issue and will continue
next week.
Political turmoil was the
password for 2010 around
Hardee County. Wauchula led
with its disfavor of City
Manager Rick Giroux and his
eventual forced resignation.
Along the way all seven city
commissioners were charged
with second-degree misde-
meanors and paid their court-
ordered fines and fees. Bowling
Green followed with an attempt
to fire City Manager Yvonne
Kimball, a move which was set-
tled. And by the year's end, a
commissioner was calling for


the firing of County Manager
Lex Albritton.
Along the way, there were ai
lot of positives for 2011. Broad-
band wireless communication
came to the far corners of the
county. Completion of the four-
laning of U.S. 17 finally got in
the state's five-year transporta-
tion plan. Florida Avenue got its
long-awaited renovation and
resurfacing. The county hired
three key directors: Public
Works director/engineer Kevir
Atchley; Building Official Jerr)
Smith; and Planner Kevir
Denny. Impact fees were de-
layed for the seventh time. Th(
county went to monthly
evening meetings.
The new year could be just a:

Kelly's Column



Rev. Bob Lecocq of the Hardee Rotary Club asked me to come
up with the Top 10 news stories in Hardee County in 2010.
Instead of 10 I came up with a Baker's Dozen, in no particular
order:
1. Oil & Gas. Gasoline prices dropped to $2.53 a month or
two after the April BP oil spill in the Gulf. Shortly after the leak
was plugged, prices started rising and climbed to just over $3 a gal-
Ion this week. Any coincidence there?
2. Freezes: January had that 11-day string of cold weather,
with some wells going dry and sinkholes in the main strawberry
area of Florida in western Polk/eastern Hillsborough, and several
freezes in December, including weather in the mid and low 20s
Tuesday a.m. before dawn. Sunday and Monday nights produced
freezing temperatures in Hardee. Pasture grasses are brown. The
orange crop has been damaged.
3. U.S. Hwy. 17. Plans were announced recently that four-lan-
ing is now on the five-year plan and construction is expected to
start in late 2011 on a five-mile stretch south of Zolfo Springs.
4. Housing/Real Estate. Slump Continues. The bubble burst
from 2008 is still losing'some air. Prices have fallen on houses and
land. Citrus grove prices are pretty good. Land, which had soared
to $10,000 an acre or more, has dropped two-thirds from its highs.
5. Environmental/Jobs. A lawsuit was filed by three envi-
ronmental groups-Sierra Club, MatMsota 88, and People For
Protecting Peace River-on Mosaic's planned South Fort Meade
Mine extension into northeastern Hardee County until a thorough
* environmental impact study is done. Over 200 jobs were at stake.
SSome mining will be allowed as the lawsuit continues through the
Judicial system.
6. Regional Landfill. An unpopular regional landfill was pro-
moted and planned for southeastern Hardee County. It would have
brought a few jobs and some millions in revenues to the county, but
there were major concerns for noise, traffic, health and potential
environmental damage. The County Commission denied the land-
fill by a 3-2 vote.
7. High Prices for Cattle, Oranges. Cattle prices remained
well over a dollar a pound on the hoof. Some calves bring over
S$1.40 a pound. Orange prices were about $1.40 to $1.50 a pound
solids. The traditional OJ container dropped from 64 ounces to 59
ounces.
8. Citrus Greening. Many groves are affected by this disease
spread by psyllids. Millions of dollars are being spent on research
to find a cure. This disease ruins fruit and over time kills trees.
9. Livestock Market. A December announcement was made
the Hardee Livestock Market is closing at year's end after 64 years.
This was an institution of Hardee agriculture and has been under
several owners through the years.
10. The Hardee High School Football Season. Under a new
coach the Wildcats started out 0-6, then started playing better and
-,won 3 of 4 games to make the playoffs as district runner-up, fin-
ished 3-8 after a close loss to Tampa Jesuit..
11. High-Speed Internet. The county economic development
board gave $2 million in local phosphate severance tax money to
"-help Rapid Systems bring broadband service throughout the coun-
ty.
12. FCAT/Grading Controversy Continues. Many local
.educators do not like the FCAT-tests. Hardee High School received
a D grade from the state for the fourth straight year.
13 Politics. A strong Republican showing. Ben Albritton
became the first state representative from Hardee County since the
.mid-1960s. Sue Birge became the first female Hardee County
Commissioner. Thomas Trevino (School Board) became the first
..Hispanic elected to countywide office in the county.

$150,000. Arrested and charged with trafficking of cocaine was a
38 year old male from Bowling Green.

Once again, Hardee High School is searching for a new head
football coach. Three-year Head Coach Tim Price announced his
resignation late last week.

Hardee County once again has a building official in charge at
the Building & Zoning Office. Jerome "Jerry" Smith began work at
the office on Monday of last week.

The sound of laughter, chanting and applause was heard as the
69th Annual Hardee County Fair began last week with the crown
ing of Miss Hardee County Saturday night.

March
The suicide of an inmate at Hardee County Jail has resulted in
the termination of a deputy there. Officer Danny W. Petty, who was
hired by the Hardee County Sheriff's Office has been fired for vio-
lation of department policy.

A "complete evaluation of the entire city government" of
Wauchula will begin on Monday. That's the day consultant Dr.
Robert E. Lee will start interviews with members of the City
Commission, the city manager, department heads and every
employee.

Denise Hamilton, vice-president and chief financial officer of
Rapid Systems Inc., confirmed Tuesday that broadband or wireless
networking is coming to Hardee County within 60-90 days. The 20
gigabytes (20 million bytes) per second connectivity will be avail-
able to 100 percent of the county as soon as towers are available.

A local man will be honored with a building in his name. John
Burton has been recognized as an outstanding member of the
Wauchula Kiwanis Club, and as such the new teen building at the
Leon Sharp Youth Center will be named after him.

April
Electrical substations will be allowed in all land use classifi-
cations. And a new classification, "Residential Estate" will be
added to allow for one home on 2-1/2 acres, a new land-use cate-
gory created to better transition between urban and agricultural
areas.

The Wauchula City Commission held a workshop session
Monday night to hear a report by a consultant on problems in city
government. Robert E. Lee presented his report, which cost $4,800.
He said there have been serious violations of the city charter,
adopted in 2004 to provide a city commission/city manager form of
government.

A dozen city employees speaking on Monday were about
evenly divided for or against Wauchula City Manager Rick Giroux.
The comments came after the regularly scheduled meeting of the
Wauchula City.Commission was adjourned to the City Auditorium
to accommodate the overflow crowd.

Hardee County's judge has been nominated for a seat on the
circuit bench. County Judge Jeff J. McKibben is one of 10 nomi-
nees to fill a total of three upcoming vacancies in the 10th Judicial
Circuit, which is composed of Hardee, Highlands and Polk coun-
ties.

In the space of less than 10 days detectives with the Hardee
County Drug Task Force found and contained two alleged metham-
phetamine labs. A total of four suspects have been arrested.
May
State funding cuts have closed a key local facility for the hand-
icapped. The HARC (Hardee Association for Retarded Citizens)
center in Zolfo Springs will close its doors on Tuesday.

The final public hearing workshop on mining overlay in vari-
ous areas of the county will be tonight. The Hardee County
Commission and Planning & Zoning Board will hold its final joint
meeting to finish the two-year job of implementing the 2008 EAR
(Evaluation and Appraisal) into the county's Comprehensive Land
Use Plan.

The county's final Comp Plan amendments were very differ-
ent from those first proposed a year ago. Citizen input has forced a
variety of changes during workshops designed to amend the
Hardee County Comprehensive Land Use Plan to accommodate
growth for the next 20 or 30 years.

Tuesday begins a six-month season of being prepared for hur-
ricanes. This year, the six-year cycle of hurricanes repeats those of
2004. Remember, 2004 hurricanes devastated Hardee County.

June
Two young Zolfo Springs men lost their lives. in a single vehi-
cle crash early Sunday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Both were ejected from their automobile.

In an odd set of circumstances compounded by an error, six of
seven seats on the Wauchula City Commission are up for re-elec-
tion this year. And in another oddity, every incumbent currently
faces criminal charges for allegedly violating the state's
Government-in-the-Sunshine law.

From a little girl who liked to play school to an accomplished
adult who is now the principal of one. Such is the progression for
37-year-old Melanie Henderson of Wauchula.

This year, at the annual Senior Honors & Hall of Fame
Banquet in Wauchula, Judge Shirlyon "Joyce" McWhorter was the'
honored inductee into the Hardee County Schools Hall of Fame.
The honoree currently serves as director of Equal Opportunity
Programs & Diversity at Florida International University.

exciting in the county. It won't
be long before the county has
the streaming up for live and
archived telecasts of the com-
mission meetings. Folks will be
able to watch it while it's hap-
.pening or see it later. They can
even choose a particular agenda
item of their interest and go
directly to it. The agendas will
be printed, including backup
data available before the meet-
ing. Commissioners will have
laptop computers to see and
conduct business.
A visioning process which
began in 2010 will continue
throughout 2011. The visioning
process committee will be
named at Tuesday's commis-
sion meeting, which was
rescheduled from Thursday
because three commissioners
will be going to state-required
meetings. The visioning kickoff
meeting will be the January
evening meeting, on Jan. 20
from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Agric-
Civic Center.
Roads will be the subject of a
planning session on Jan. 14, but
several projects are already in
the works, planning, engineer-
ing and the like. Limestone will
get a new stretch of road, con-
necting directly to Murphy
Road without having to wait to
cross the railroad tracks. State.
funding for roads will allot"
projects on Moffitt Road to
Dallas McClellan; the second
half of Sweetwater Road, from
Crewsville Road to SR 66;
work on Bostick Road for
stormwater drainoff, widening
and paving; Parnell and North
Hammock roads; and several
more sidewalk sections.
Grants will allow the four
fields, restrooms and conces-
sions to be completed at Hardee
Park behind the Agri-Civic
Center. They will be done in
time for the March 28 kickoff of
the youth baseball season.


Restrooms and electric for 20
RV spaces will be added at
Pioneer Park and 20 in Hardee
Lakes Park.
As always, there are a variety
of necessary, behind-the-scenes
projects most folks aren't aware
of. Construction will be com-
pleted on the wastewater/water
headquarters and 80 to 100
homes in Wauchula Hills added
as the county's water/sewer
project continues. At the land-
fill, partial closure of the first
section will continue with liners
up both sides and development
of a plan to determine future
landfill use, move to the final'
five acres the county owns or
increase air sppce. A decision
has to be made by 2012 in order:
to get engineering/ permitting
done.
Small county courthouse
funds will allow renovations for
the courthouse. A storage build-
ing for clerk's records and relo-
cating county probation and
guardian ad litem will lead to
expansion of the court system
and another courtroom and
offices for it.
Those are the major plans for
2011. There's a lot of other
things, like purchase/replace-
ment of vehicles, the annual
budget preparation and chal-
lenge., and day-to-day routines
for tllL.county's 20-some de-
partments, big and small.

Q: As long as a weight loss
supplement is labeled
"ephedra-free," it should be
safe, right?
A; Unfortunately, you can't
assume "ephedra-free" means a
product is safe. Ephedra was
banned in the United States in
2004 because of serious harm-
ful cardiovascular effects, but
"ephedra-free" products are not
necessarily stimulant-free and
can lead to unsafe increases in
blood pressure and heart rate
for some people. Some manu-
facturers have replaced ephedra
with citrus aurantium (also
known as "bitter orange").
Especially in combination with
caffeine, this ingredient can
cause stimulant effects similar
to ephedra and has resulted in
various heart-related side
effects in otherwise healthy
people. Besides, although
advertisements provide expla-
nations that sound logical about
effects of bitter orange on meta-
bolic rate, research does not
support it having a role in clini-
cally significant weight loss.
The cumulative effect of small
changes that add up to cut 250
to 500 calories a day are actual-
ly a safer and more reliable path
to weight control, especially if
you can also work in a few
blocks of ten to fifteen minutes
of walking or other moderate
activity throughout the day.
Q: Is it true that olive oil
loses its health benefits when
cooked and should only be
used for salad dressings and i
other uncooked foods?
A: Olive oil is a very health-
ful oil and most people are.
aware of its heart-healthy mon-I
ounsaturated fat. Olive oil also'
contains phenolic phytochemi-
cals that seem to lend anti-
inflammatory and antioxidant
effects that may work along
with an overall healthy diet to
help lower risk of both heart
disease and cancer. Some stud-
ies suggest that heat destroys
phenolic compounds or their
biological activity in extended


AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR
CANCER RESEARCH
heating times such as when
olive oil is re-used for frying.
However, the studies show
decreases of only 5 to 30% in
those protective compounds, so
olive oil may still be providing
more of these compounds than
other oils. Other concerns relate
to potential negative substances
released when cooking with
olive oil. Re-using and thus
reheating oil to high tempera-
tures may lead to free radical
formation, but this is not how
most people cook with olive oil.
Extra virgin olive oil's smoke
point is generally given as 410
degrees F, which gives plenty of
room for the 250 to 350 degrees
F that covers most cooking. For
very high temperature stir-fry-
ing, however, oils like canola or
peanut are typically preferred
for their even higher smoke
point. As for reports that toxins
are released when olive oil is
heated, I can only find research
studies showing this result
when the oil is heated at high
temperatures for hours.
Q: Can a healthy lifestyle
lower risk of benign prostate
enlargement?
A: Benign prostatic hyper-
plasia, known as BPH, is an
enlargement of the prostate
gland that is not malignant
(cancerous). Although common
in men as they age it can cause
substantial problems for men's
quality of life. Research in-
creasingly links the tendency to
develop BPH with factors also
tied to risk of heart disease and
diabetes, including obesity and
low physical activity. Large
human studies so far suggest
that including plenty of vegeta-
bles in your diet may lower
BPH risk by 10 to 35 percent.
Limited evidence particularly
identifies vegetables rich in
vitamin C, beta-carotene and
lutein, such as leafy green and
dark orange vegetables, as well
as onion, garlic and legumes,
with lower risk. These choices
all provide antioxidant nutrients
and phytochemicals, but antiox-

idart supplements have not i
shown protective benefits. A
few studies also suggest that a
diet low in fat and red meat may
also help lower risk.

Q: Are lentils as nutritious
as dried beans (such as kidney
beans, black beans and gar-
banzo beans)?
A: Absolutely! Like all dried
beans and peas, lentils -are high
in fiber. Just a half-cup *of
cooked lentils provides nearly
as much fiber as two cups of
cooked oatmeal, and much of it
is soluble fiber that helps lower
blood cholesterol. All legumes
are excellent sources of iron
and the B vitamin folate that is
so important to producing and
maintaining healthy DNA, and
lentils are highest of all. Like
other legumes, lentils provide
both protein and antioxidant
phytochemicals like flavonoids.
Limited data suggests that
whole lentils that are not split
and skinned may retain the
most antioxidant power. Len-
tils' easy preparation requires
no soaking like other dried
beans, so you can go from
pantry to table in about half an
hour, depending on the type of .
lentil you choose. Red lentils
take less time to cook and
become pur6e-like, so they're
great for thickening soups or in
dhal. Green and brown lentils
hold their shape so you can use
them in salads, soups or entrees.

going into a counter-clockwise
spin. The van traveled over the
center line and back onto the
west shoulder, with its right
side leading, the report said.
The right side of the van then
struck a utility pole and an
orange tree, the investigators
said. It continued to rotate
counter-clockwise and then
overturned.
A fire began, and the van was
engulfed in flames, the report
stated.
The driver of the van was not
wearing a seat belt, according to
the Florida Highway Patrol.
The report said the driver was
partially ejected from the van,
and became pinned underneath
it.
The driver was taken to the
Medical Examiner's Office in
Lakeland, where tests are being
conducted to determine the vic-
tim's identity.
This was the 11th person to
die on Hardee County roadways
in 2010.

excited to get this funded, along
with the two final U.S. 17 proj-
ects. Nocatee to Arcadia will be
in 2014-15 and Collins Road to
76 will be in 2012-13. That
means construction of all of
U.S. 17 in within the next five
years.
"It's finally nice to see light
at the end of the tunnel. It's
taken a lot of work over a lot of
years," said Commission Chair-
man Terry Atchley.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
agreed. "We're so glad. We
appreciate all the hard work
that's been done." He made the
motion to endorse the five-year
plan.
King noted the most immedi-
ate projects, beside four-laning
the northbound U.S. 17 pair to
Zolfo Springs. There's $3.5
million for resurfacing SR 64
from Morgan Grice Road to the
Highlands County line coming
up in the next fiscal year.
Another project of interest is
construction/reconstruction of
CR 663 from SR 62 to the Polk
County line, with the use of fed-
eral stimulus monies. County
Commissioner Minor Bryant
said it is. an important truck
route "not only to us, but to
Polk County, where Mosaic's.
big new development will bor-
der it on the east side. It's not
just phosphate traffic, but
Publix trucks and others use
that road to come down into
Hardee County."
Resurfacing on Parnell and
North Hammock roads are in
the plans. Sidewalks in Bowl-
ing Green, Zolfo Springs, and
along U.S. 17 north of Wau-
chula, another priority of the
commission for traffic enhance-
ment dollars, have also been
added. And, a plan is under way
for a countywide pedestrian and
.bike route to establish priorities
for future enhancement monies.



WEATHER

went below freezing around 10
p.m., hovering between freez-
ing the critical 28-degree point
most of the night. Temperatures
then began to plummet around
4 a.m. Tuesday, dipping into the
low 20s in most areas. Temper-
atures remained below freezing
until well after the sun was up.
There were random reports of
temperatures in the high teens
in colder pockets.
Carlton said assessing dam-
age is still under way, "but the
quickly rising temperatures at
the end of the week could prove
problematic." A report of dam-
ages will be in the next issue.

Whether women are better

Teachers Paying For Class Supplies


Public school teachers spend
about $3.5 billion of their own
money on educational products
a year, according to a National
School Supply and Equipment
Association study.

Study Discoveries
The study also found:
Fifty-seven percent of
respondents indicated that
classroom funding decreased at
least in part due to the down
economy.
To make up the shortfall in
their classrooms, teachers say
they have spent more of their
own money, altered their lesson
plans and asked for more from
parents.
Teachers' personal money
is the post common source of
money for classroom educa-
.tional products.
Ninety-two percent of
teachers surveyed report spend-
ing their own money for school
supplies and 85 percent on


instructional materials for their
classrooms.

School Suppliers
Now, teachers, parents and
pupils are getting help from a
corporate citizen. To help offset
rising expenses for classroom
supplies, a new privately fund-
ed program will provide more
than $4.5 million to 45,000
teachers.
Focusing on public schools
with the highest level of need,
each Wal-mart store and Sam's
Club location across the nation
is eligible to select one kinder-
garten through eighth grade
school to participate in the com-
pany's Teacher Rewards pro-
gram. Ten teachers per school
are randomly selected to each
receive a $100 Teacher Re-
wards card to purchase class-
room supplies.

important factor in preparing
students to be the next genera-


r Nutrition Wise
KAREN COLUMNS, MS, RD, CDN
|ft AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR
ILi CANCER RESEARCH


Q: Is it true that the health-
iest beverage choice when eat-
ing out is always juice, espe-
cially for breast cancer sur-
vivors?
A: Juice is obviously a nutri-
tious drink, and depending on
the type, it may provide valu-
able vitamins and antioxidants.
So when you're eating out
somewhere that doesn't offer
many vegetable or fruit selec-
tions, juice can be a good
option. However, remember
that one of the biggest problems
with restaurant meals is the
excess calories we get from the
large portions and hidden fat.
Juice is just as concentrated in
calories as a regular soft drink,
and it does not fill you up in the
same way as does eating solid
vegetables or fruit. Because
excess weight and undesirable
weight gain are primary influ-
ences raising risk of many types
of cancer, including post-
menopausal breast cancer and
its recurrence, in many cases
the best beverage choice is
probably water. Or consider
another zero-calorie option like
club soda or unsweetened ice
tea, hot tea or coffee. If you
don't see vegetable or fruit
options on the menu, ask what
is available. Most restaurants
will at least be able to provide a
side order of sliced tomatoes or
some sort of fruit such as grapes
or melon.

Q: I've read that asparagus
can fight cancer: Is that true?
A: You may have read a story
circulating on the Internet that
suggests a daily dose of pureed
asparagus can cure cancer. That
story has no support in peer-
reviewed research journals, and
I've been unable to find any
information on prior publica-
tions or background on the
expert source of the story. On
the other hand, asparagus cer-
tainly has value as one part of a
plant-based diet that reduces
cancer risk. It's a good source
of folate (a B vitamin essential
to maintain healthy DNA) and
vitamins C and A, as well as
antioxidant compounds like
glutathione and rutin.
Asparagus is low in calories (as
long as you don't smother it in
high-fat cheese sauce or butter),
so like most other vegetables, it
can help to satisfy hunger while
promoting a healthy weight,
which research now says has
major impact on reducing risk
of several common cancers.
Q: How much could I cut
calories and saturated fat if I
bake with egg whites instead
9f whole eggs?
A: The amount of fat saved
depends on how many whole
eggs you replace and the num-
ber of servings in the recipe.
Each time you substitute two
egg- whites for one whole egg,
,you save 40 calories and 1.6
grams of saturated fat. While
, that can add up to a substantial
total in the entire recipe, when
you divide the total savings
among the number of servings,
the substitution saves about 10
calories and only 0.3 to 0.5
grams of saturated fat per serv-
ing of most muffins, cookies
and cakes. Depending on what
you're making, you cut saturat-
ed fat more by reducing or
replacing butter, stick mar-
garine, shortening or cream
cheese. Changing egg use also
usually doesn't cut calories as
much as when you reduce the
amount of these added fats and
oil. Some recipes use so much


that you can simply reduce the
amount listed by one-fourth and
the result will turn out great.
You can also adjust recipes by
substituting an equal amount of
applesauce, baby food prunes
or low-fat plain yogurt for some
of the fat. And when it comes to
calories, remember that reduc-
ing sugar also helps, as does
simply making smaller serving
sizes of the final product.

Q: Are there steps that can
reduce lung cancer risk in
non-smokers?
A: Tobacco is unquestion-
ably the major cause of lung
cancer, accounting for nearly
nine out of 10 deaths from lung
cancer. Yet that still leaves
thousands of cases of lung can-
cer that we wish we could pre-
vent through other steps.
Passive smoking, technically
referred to as Environmental
Tobacco Smoke (ETS), ac-
counts for 3,000 deaths from
lung cancer among non-smok-
ers in thq United States each
year according to a National
Cancer Institute report. Making
homes and workplaces non-
smoking territory is a major
step to lower risk. It's also
important to follow recom-
mended precautions to avoid
radon, airborne asbestos and
occupational exposure to other
chemicals identified as carcino-
gens. Diet plays some role, too,
though we need more research.
Increased amount and variety of
vegetables and fruits show the
greatest potential so far.
Recently, a large population
study in Europe linked greater
variety of vegetable and fruit
consumption with nearly a 25
percent drop in lung cancer
risk; however this was only sig-
nificant among current smok-
ers. An American Institute for
Cancer Research (AICR) report
concludes that fruits and foods
containing carotenoids (such as
vegetables and fruits that are
deep orange or dark green)
probably help prevent lung can-
cer. Cruciferous vegetables
(such as broccoli, Brussels
sprouts and cauliflower), deep
green vegetables (such as


tion of leaders and to succeed in
the workforce," said Margaret
McKenna, president of the
Walmart Foundation. "With
budgets tightening, we want to
support teachers who are pur-
chasing supplies for their class-
rooms out of their own pock-
ets."
This is the second year thai
Walmart has supported educa-
tors through the Teacher
Rewards program. Last year,
educators used the rewards to
purchase 25,000 report folders;
24,000 packs of pens, pencils
and crayons; 14,000 packs of
paper; 13,000 markers; and
10,000 binders and clipboards.
This clearly dem-onstrates that
teachers need basic supplies to
help support their classrooms.

Retired Missionaries

Visit ZS Baptist


First Baptist Church of Zolfo
Springs recently had the oppor-
tunity to hear retired Inter-
national Mission Board mis-
sionaries speak to their congre-
gation.
Harry and Barbara Bush are
recently retired IMB missionar-
ies from Indoneisa, South and
Southeast Asia. They served for
31 years as both church planters
and leadership trainers.
After planting churches
among Muslims in East Java,
Indonesia, then starting the
First Baptist Church on the.
Hindu island of Bali, Indonesia;
they have spent the last 16 years
training and equipping national
pastors and primary church
leadership in 12 different coun-
tries.
"It was one of the most
rewarding things we have ever
done in service to our Lord,"
the couple said.


The couple retired to Brad-
enton last October and has been
traveling to different churches
sharing their experiences.
Throughout their visits they
realized many people have not
heard a "real live missionary"
speak to them and would like to
continue to offer their ministry
to any churches interested.
"Finances cannot be an obsta-
cle! We will come to speak to
churches of any size, with or
'without an honorarium. Where
possible, if the church can help
with the cost of gas and put us
in a member's home when
needed, it would be appreciated
but not a requirement," the cou-
ple said.
If any church is interested in
hearing the retired missionary's
experiences, the Bushes can be
reached by phone at (941) 567-
5342 or by email at baha-
bush2@gmail.com.

There is hopeful news for the
estimated 5 million Americans
who are diagnosed with heart
valve disease each year.
Defects in heart valves can
exist from birth or develop from
damage later in life. Fortunate--
ly, valve disease can usually be
successfully treated with sur-
gery in patients of all ages.
If you have been diagnosed
with valve disease, have a heart
murmur or think you may be
experiencing symptoms, be
sure to talk with your doctor.

Valve Disease Is Not
A Normal Part Of Aging
Many of the symptoms of
valve disease are inaccurately
mistaken for the "normal signs
of aging." Age is not a reason to
not have valve disease surgery,
and valve disease can usually
be successfully treated in
patients of all ages.
Diagnosis Is Key
The only way to really know
is to be diagnosed by a doctor,
so see yours right away if you

310 Court Street
Wauchula, FL


are told you have a murmur or
you are experiencing any of
these:
Shortness of breath
Weakness or dizziness
Pain, tightness or discom-
fort in the chest
Fainting or feeling faint
Fatigue
Rapid or irregular heart-
beat
Light-headedness
Decrease in exercise
capacity
Swollen abdomen or
ankles and feet.
According to the Alliance for
Aging Research, many of these
symptoms will only happen
during activity, but as the dis-
ease gets worse, they may also
happen while resting.

Complications Are Possible
When valve damage re-
duces blood flow, the heart has
to work harder and the body
gets less oxygen-leading to a
number of symptoms.
However, people with valve


disease do not always have
symptoms, even if their disease
is severe. For these people, a
heart murmur is the most
important clue. Others may
have symptoms with less severe
disease.
Some types of valve disease
can lead to serious complica-
tions, including death. How-
ever, most can be successfully
treated with surgery.

Resources Are Available
The Alliance for Aging
Research recently made a num-
ber of podcasts available. The
purpose of the program is to
raise awareness about the dis-
ease, its risk factors, treatment
options, tips on effective physi-
cian-patient communication
and more-all in an effort to
encourage patients to seek
appropriate care.
The Alliance was founded in
1986 to promote medical and
behavioral research into the
aging process. Learn more at
www.agingresearch.org.


In 1984, President Ronald Reagan declared July as National Ice Cream Month, citing
the food's "nutritious and wholesome" qualities. He decreed that patriotic Americans
should mark the month with "appropriate ceremonies and activities."

Joe L. Davis Real Estate Celebrates 50 Years


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a successful 61-year
career, most people would be
ready to retire.
Joe L. Davis is still going
strong and has no plans of stop-
ping after recently celebrating
the 50-year anniversary of his
company, Joe L. Davis Realty
Inc.
Born in Hardee County on
Sept. 25, 1923, Davis grew up
on a family farm east of Wau-
chula.
His father was a 20-acre
truck farmer and grew anything
to provide for his'family.
Being raised during the
depression was not easy, he
said. '
Davis realized at an early age
he did not want to depend on
farming to pay the bills and pro-
vide for his family.
In 1941, Davis moved to
Virginia and started working for
the F.W. Woolworth Company.
Starting out in the stock
room, he climbed the ladder to
the top and left the company
seven years later as store man-
ager.
His time spent there taught
him a lot about life and human
nature, he said.
"There is not a college in the
world that will give you what
they gave me," he said referring
to lessons he received from the
big and well-run company.
One of the most valuable bits
of information was watching
how people shopped and spent
their money.
"You don't sell things to peo-
ple. You present it in a way they
want it," he said.
In 1948, he and his wife, Pat,
decided to move back to Hardee
County and opened a restaurant
in Wauchula.
He also owned a restaurant in
Avon Park and partnered with
his sister on a restaurant in Or-
lando, in addition to selling
Chevrolet cars and trucks in
Wauchula.
In 1956 Davis decided to
partner with H.L. Chambers in
the real estate and insurance
business.
Back then, most realtors sold
insurance, and real estate was
just a side job, he said.
In 1957, Davis, Chambers
,and W.J. "Buck" Kelly devel-
oped the first subdivision built
in Hardee County since the
Great Depression.
Named Town and Country,
he remembers buying the prop-
erty between Florida Avenue
and U.S. 17 for $1,000 an acre,
:and the lots sold for approxi-
mately $2,000 each.
C.C. Searcy built the first
house in the subdivision and
still lives in it today.
In 1958 Davis and Chambers
sold the -insurance business to
H.A. "Dave" Davis and Lawr-
ence Roberts and were the first
to trying selling just real estate.
After four years partnering
with Chambers, Davis decided
to go into business on his own.
In the early years he remem-
bers land selling for less than
$100 an acre.
In 1965 he sold the first piece
of land to a phosphate company
in Hardee County.
He learned about the phos-
phate company wanting to buy
land while eating lunch one
Monday at the livestock mar-
ket.
Davis wanted to get involved
with the phosphate companies
buying land in Hardee County
and quickly went out to gather
more information.
A few days later he sold some
land just south of Zolfo Springs
to Stauffer Chemical Company
and since then has sold numer-
ous parcels to the phosphate
companies.
In order to make a lot of his
ideas and deals a reality, he
needed financing.
He developed a good rela-
tionship with J.W. Crews at
Wauchula State Bank.
One day he went to the bank
for a loan and put a penny in the
parking meter which was good
for 12 minutes.
He went upstairs to Crews'
office and asked him for a size-
Sable loan. Crews was reluctant
at first but granted the loan any-
' way.
Davis said he got his money
and was back in his car before
the 12 minutes expired on the
parking meter.


This type -of treatment and
fast loan approvals are what
made so many people want to
use the Crews family for bank-
ing, he said.
Land prices have varied
widely throughout the years,
and many parcels have changed
hands numerous times during
his career.
The Putnam family recently
'bought a ranch in eastern

Real estate company owners are Joe L. Davis Sr. and his wife Pat and Gloria and her
husband Joe L. Davis Jr. The company was founded in 1960 and is located in Wauchula
at 234 U.S 17 South at the old site of Cash's Service Center.


Founder Joe L. Davis Sr. visits with Barbara Carlton, exec-
utive director of the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers
Association. A reception for the public was held Thurs-
day, Dec. 16. Davis began his real estate career with H.L
Chambers from 1956 to 1960 before starting his own


company.
Hardee County for $4,700 an
acre.
Davis said in 1964 he bought
the same land with George
Trogdon for less than $100 an
acre.
Trogdon was a former foot-
ball coach from Miami and
started buying orange groves in
Hardee County.
He later moved to Wauchula
and worked with Davis in sell-
ing groves to the many contacts
Trogdon had in south Florida.
Davis said Trogdon was a
great person and one of his best
friends.
Gene Turner from Arcadia
and Davis entered the real
estate business about a month
apart.
Turner had also once owned a
restaurant, and he and Davis
had a lot in common.
The two became friends and
partnered together on many
deals and remain close friends
today.
He said the two still eat lunch
together regularly and both
have had very successful runs
in the real estate business in the
neighboring counties.
Over. the years Davis has in--
vested in citrus and enjoys
being a grove owner.
He said grove prices are al-
ways dictated by the current
fruit prices and the tax codes at
the time. He said orange groves
are the best tax deal out there
today for investing money.
Micro-jets are something he
said has greatly helped the cit-
rus industry by providing pro-
tection against hard cold and
frost.
He said the "ridge" in High-
lands County is the best place in
the world to grow a Valencia
orange. Putting money into a
grove and doing things the right
way are very important to hav-
ing a healthy and productive
grove, he said.
Citrus Greening is a serious
disease facing the citrus indus-


try, Davis said, but people are
going to have to learn to live
with it like they did other dis-
eases.
Greed is something Davis
said leads to the fall of a lot of
people. He said he likes to make
money but there is a difference
between being ambitious and
being greedy.
A big ego is something that
also trips a lot of people up, he
said.
In order to be successful in
life, Davis said, you need to en-
joy what you do and work hard
at it.
He compared the current real
estate situation to a wound.
"No matter how much medi-
cine you put on it, you need
time to let it heal," he said.
He expects property values to
rise again but said it will take
time for prices to climb back to
the levels seen a few years ago.
Davis was a good friend of
Hall of Fame baseball player
Ted Williams. He met Williams
and Billy Goodman at a church
brotherhood dove shoot at
Doyle Carlton Jr.'s pasture.
Dayis and Williams immedi-
-ately it-off and became close
friend'nd bought a few orange
groves together. They also went
on numerous hunting and fish-
ing trips together.
Now at age 87, Davis is still
very active.
He works out three days a
week at the YMCAland-goes to
the office everyday during the
week.
He has a civic mind and
enjoys helping people and or-
ganizations in need.
Some of his contributions are
done anonymously and he does
not give'to others for recogni-
tion or glory.
He believes with success in
life comes a great responsibility
to help the less fortunate and
other worthy causes.
AMd what a successful life
Joe L. Davis has lived!

mately 100 individual pieces of
brush in a 50-foot diameter
around the buoy. The sub-
merged brush piles, which were
sunk in 7-10 feet of water, are
composed of either orange or
oak trees and should last many
years.
Crappie anglers should find
the attractors especially produc-
tive for fishing this time of year,
as crappie often school in large
numbers and seek thick cover.
Bass, panfish and catfish
anglers who target the brush
piles also will be rewarded,
since these species are attracted
to woody cover as well.

To Close
The recreational "harvest of
gag grouper in Gulf of Mexico
federal waters off Florida will
be prohibited beginning Jan. 1.
Federal fisheries managers
recently announced a temporary
rule that closes Gulf federal
waters to recreational fishing
for gag grouper for six months
while they develop long-term
measures to improve gag
grouper populations.
Gulf federal waters extend
beyond nine nautical miles
from Florida's shoreline.
Gulf state waters (from shore
out to nine nautical miles) will
remain open for recreational
gag grouper harvest until Feb.
1. However, people on federally
permitted for-hire reef-fish ves-
sels may not harvest or possess
gag grouper in state waters dur-
ing the temporary federal clo-
sure.

America's New Health

Care Provider Of Choice


Across the nation, more than
S140,000 nurse practitioners
(NPs) provide a variety of life-
saving health care to patients of
all ages and walks of life.
A growing number of people
describe these health care pro-
fessionals as the "real heroes of
medicine." These "everyday
:heroes" are the health care
providers of choice for so many
because of their unique combi-
nation of medical and nursing
ex-pertise.
Here are some important
facts about nurse practitioners:
A master's degree is
required to practice, al-though
most go on to obtain a doctoral
degree.
They also receive advanced
clinical training beyond the ini-
tial registered nurse prepara-
tion.
The practitioners diagnose
and treat acute and chronic con-
ditions such as diabetes, high
blood pressure, infections and
injuries.
They order, perform and
interpret diagnostic tests such
as lab work and X-rays.
They prescribe medica-

Q: I keep hearing stories
about nutrition influencing
genetics. I thought that genet-
ics refers to inherited traits. Is
this stuff true?
A: Scientists used to think
that the genes inherited from'
our parents influenced our,
.health risks in a one-way direc-1
tion by influencing our absorp-
tion and metabolism of various,
nutrients and affecting our sus-
* ceptibility to chronic diseases
like cancer, diabetes and heart
disease. Research now shows
'that this is a two-way street.,
Our eating habits affect whether i'


tions and other treatments.
They treat the whole per-
son, not just a symptom or dis-
ease. They focus on.health pro-
motion and disease prevention,
while guiding their patients
toward healthy lifestyles and
choices.
Recent surveys show that
when it comes to access and
responsiveness, many people
feel NPs are easier to access
than physicians and are more
likely to listen and address their
concerns.
Because they receive a com-
*bination of high-quality health
care and health counseling,
patients who have NPs as their
health care provider often have
fewer emergency room visits,
shorter hospital stays and often
have lower medication costs.
As more patients choose this
way to address health care con-
cerns, many seek an easier way
to find these professionals.

certain genes are turned on or
lie dormant in a tuirned-off
state. Nutrients and natural
plant compounds in vegetables,
fruits, whole grains, beans and
nuts seem to act together to turn
on genes that can promote
self-destruction of cancer cells
and turn off genes that promote
cancer cell development. Don't
let the stories you hear convince:
you that we've got all the inter-
actions between diet and genes:
mapped out, however. For now,.
studies in this area provide one
more reason why eating a bal-
anced mostly plant-based diet
is linked to good health, and
some understanding of why we
don't all get equal protection.
But we are a long way from
using individual testing to iden-
tify recommended amounts of
specific nutrients.

City Sets Sunshine Workshop


By JOAN SEAMAN
*Of The Herald-Advocate
The Wauchula City Commis-
sion invites all public officials
to join them.
At its Dec. 13 meeting, the
commission amended its reso-
lution requiring annual Sun-
shine Law training the first of
December. With difficulty in
scheduling the trainer in De-
cember, the amended resolution
calls for it in early February.
This year, it will be Feb. 1
from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the
Hardee County Commission
Chambers, Courthouse Annex I,
412 W. Orange St., Wauchula.
Commissions from Zolfo
Springs, Bowling Green and the
county as well as any other pub-
lic officials are welcome, said
Wauchula Mayor David Royal.
In other business, the com-
mission:
-approved second reading
of three ordinances, after the
required public hearings. The
first was the amendments to the
city's Comprehensive Land Use
Plan. Most of the changes are
state-required to be compatible
with the state's agreement to
promote greenhouse.gas emis-
sions, and require green space,


technology and environment in
density, parks and recreation,
downtown revitalization, pre-
vention of urban sprawl, protec-
tion of historic resources, park-
ing areas and transportation.
An ordinance approved on
first reading sent the city's first
draft of its EAR (Evaluation
and Appraisal Report) to the
state Department of Communi-
ty Affairs for its review and
approval. When it comes back,
the city will make its recom-
mended changes and hold final
hearing on it.
The second was an ordinance
to end after-hour reconnections
for utilities. The accompanying
resolution approved also by the
commission sets reconnections
fees. Between 8:30 a.m. and
4:30 p.m. the reconnection fee
is $15. Requests between 4:30
and 5 p.m. will entail a $50 fee
because it would cause employ-
ees to work past 5 p.m. All out-
standing bills and fees must be
paid before utilities will be re-
connected.
The third ordinance approved
on second reading was final
budget adjustments for the
2009-10 fiscal year which
ended Sept. 30.

ty Economical Development

-addressed speeding prob-
lems in the English Way loop.

issuing citations. There could
be a No Thru Traffic Sign and
small-scale removable speed
bumps, if police action is not
effective.
-Decided to go out for bids
on the vacant lot at 513 N.
Eighth Avenue. Bids will start
at $6,200, the city's appraisal
value for it. Bids must be in

Circus Coming To Wauchula


By MESQUA FIELDS
For The Herald-Advocate
The Amazing Anastasini
Circus will be coming to town!
It will be setting up in the
field between The Panda and
The Breadboard, with its brand
new, custom-made for 2011
European Circus tent, and the
Anastasini family circus has
invited anyone interested to

"This tent is very different
from the others and it will be
something no one has seen
before," says Renato Anastasi-
ni.
The new tent will go up on
Jan. 6, and those who decide to


watch the construction will wit-
ness some of the domestic ani-
mals that the circus will have in
its acts.
The Anastasini family is an
eighth generation of.prestigious

Italy, who are now based in
South Florida, and perform a
fast-paced show. Its variety of
shows include: The Amazing
Anastasini Circus, with aerial
acts, dexterous ground acts and
comedy acts; The Amazing
Anastasini Thrill Show, with
50-foot high trusses, and the
only Aerial Spaceship Act in the
United States; and the Ana-
stasini's Comedy Show, featur-
ing Nono, the famous personal-


ity from Italy who will perform
unique, comedic stunts, and
also have audience participation
bits. Many of the acts that will
be performed have been fea-
tured on PBS.
The viewing of the tent's ris-
ing will be free to all who
would like to watch it; however,
the circus will hold performanc-
es on Friday, Jan. 7 at 7:30 p.m.,
Saturday, Jan. 8 at 2 p.mi. and 6
p.m., and also on Sunday, Jan. 9

Peace has to be created in order to be maintained. It is the product of Faith, Strength,
Energy, Will, Sympathy, Justice, Imagination and the triumph of principle. It will never
be achieved by passivity and quietism.
-Dorothy Thompson
To be an American (unlike being English or French or whatever) is precisely to imag-
ine a destiny rather than to inherit one; since we have always been, insofar as we are
Americans at all, inhabitants of myth rather than history.

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 bumper of the patrol car, and
they came to a stop without any
damage.
Near you. are qohers who are
rushing to destruction, and the

You will help them, won't you?

Dr. Bob Holveston: True Miracles Happon


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Dr. Robert D. Helveston suffered
from a back injury in 1967, since then
his entire life has changed. He has been
a practicing chiropractor for 35 years,
serving Hardee County for the past 25.
"Once I injured my back, the Marine
Corps wanted me to undergo surgery. I
didn't want to," Helveston explained.
"My brother was a chiropractor, and
once I got out he suggested I go to one. I
went for six months to a year before I
was better. It saved me from surgery and
I decided then that I wanted to help oth-
ers the same way."
A chiropractor is a licensed profes-
sional who emphasizes diagnosis, treat-
ment and prevention with health prob-
lems in the spine. They must undergo 2-
4 years of undergraduate education, four
years in a chiropractor college course,
and pass the state examinations in order
to be a practicing chiropractor.
Helveston was studying as an English
major when he made the switch to pre-
med. Taking part in the five-year pro-
gram, he practiced for 10 years in
Tennessee before moving his practice to
Wauchula.
"I love this profession because I get to
see the true miracles that happen. When

National Program Recognizes Hardee's Outdoor Classroom


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County was recently
acknowledged at the National
Estuary Program Convention
held in Punta Gorda.
The convention is held annu-
ally for the members of the dif-
ferent estuary programs around
the United States. This year, 26
out of the 28 nationally estab-
lished programs were represent-
ed. Also in attendance was the
local Outdoor Classroom coor-
dinator along with four Hardee
Senior High School students.
Part of the program featured
student presentations done by
Mesqua Fields; a junior at
Hardee High School and six-
year .eco-camper; Josue Fu-
entes, a senior and four-year
eco-camper; Makenna Fite, a
sophomore and four-year eco-
camper; and Tyler Pella, a
freshman and first-year eco-
camper.
Each presented a different
topic which highlighted the
Calusa Indians, tourism and
development, phosphate, and
cattlemen and their importance
to the surrounding counties.
"We were asked this year by
the National (Estuary) Program
to demonstrate how we teach
our fifth graders about the
Peace River and taking water
tests and samples," said local
Outdoor Classroom head Kay-
ton Nedza.
."We took them out on one of
the boats just like we do with
our students, and my volunteers
selected NEP members to teach
them exactly what to do," he
continued.
The Association of National


While on the boat tour, the volunteers selected different
National Estuary Program members to teach them how to
take water samples. Here, Mesqua Fields helps perform


a water test.
Estuary Program was estab-
lished in 1987 by the amend-
ment to the Clean Water Act to
identify, restore and protect
estuaries along the coasts of the
United States. There are 28
nationally-designated estuaries
in the nation, four of which are
in Florida: Tampa Bay, Sarasota
Bay, Charlotte Harbor and
Indian River Lagoon.
Hardee County is associated
with the Charlotte Harbor estu-
ary through Nedza as the local
representative. While the Char-
lotte Harbor National Estuary
Program has been in existence
since 1995, Nedza has been
involved for the past 12 years,
obtaining a position on the


Citizens Advisory Board.
"I felt that since we are
already connected with the
Charlotte Harbor and take field
trips and do studies down there,
it would be a good investment
to become a member and more
involved. It has proved to be a
great decision; we are given
grants to help operate our out-
door classroom," said Nedza.
Learn how to transform your
property into an oasis to con-
serve water resources and re-
duce pollution at the DeSoto
and Hardee Conservation Land-
scaping Workshop. The next
workshop will be held Saturday,
Jan. 22, at the Turner Center in
Arcadia.

By CAROLINE DURRANCE
Special To The Herald-Advocate
The person I interviewed was Walter
Farr, also known as "Papa!"
Mr. Farr was born on May 20, 1939,
in Sebring. He was an only child and
graduated from Sebring High School in
1957.
He said that most people usually .
walked to school, rode bikes or the
school bus; not many had cars, only the
ones who could afford them. He was
fortunate in that he only had to walk a
block to school each day.
Fan- said there were many things to
do for fun, just like there is now. He
would usually wax and polish his fami-
ly's car every weekend, and his two
favorite sports to play were football and
baseball. "Now, I'm sure," he said,
"there are a lot of boys I know that play
these sports."
Farr also stated that people hung,out
just like we do now. For example, teens
used to go to this place called "Teen
Town." It was like a youth center, and
had a "Harvey's Drive-In" that was just
like Sonic. ,s;
A luxury back then .
would be a TV set or a .
new c~ar. They also had '.
rules just like any house-
hold, such as no bad words, no alco-
holic drinks in the house, curfews, and
keeping your room clean. They also
went to church on Sunday and
Wednesday.
He went to college at Stetson
University, and graduated from there in
1961 with a bachelor of science degree
in accounting. His occupation was as a
certified public accountant. However, he
is retired now and owns citrus groves
and cattle. His first job after college, at
the age of 21, was working for a CPA ,
'firm in Lake Wales. He received about
$2.50 an hour; if he had overtime, it
was $3.75. A high-paying job back then
was $12,000 a year.
Although he didn't move when he
was younger, he began to move much
more as he progressed in age. He has
lived in Sebring; DeLand; Fort
Benning, Ga.; Bamberg, Germany; Lake
Wales; and Wauchula.
When he was in Bamberg, Germany,
he was in the military. He came into the
service in 1962 as an officer 2Lt. He
came out of active duty in 1965, then
spent seven years in special forces
reserve as a captain. He had many jobs
in the military, for example a platoon

leader, paratrooper, and then an "A
Team" leader. Farr also received many
privileges in the military: the officer's
club, PX privileges, and a housing
allowance. Personally, I think the best
part about the military, for
'" my papa, was that he jumped
1"y8e, out of an airplane 61 times.
1, Another interesting thing
-about him is that he and my
grandma, Carol McAdams, met in the
first grade. They started dating their
junior year of high school, and eventu-
ally got married in their junior year of
college at the age of 20.
His most treasured memory, as a
child, was when his family took a two-
week camping trip to North Carolina in
1955. Another thing that happened to
him was that he got pneumonia in the
second grade. My grandma wrote him a
"get well" card, and they still have it.
He says some of the news going on
in his time was at the end of World War
II, and also when John F. Kennedy was
assassinated.
Farr has four children and 11 grand-
children. They all live in Hardee and
Highlands counties. Farr and his wife
have lived in Hardee County for 34
years and say they enjoy everything
about it.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.


We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real
conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it
involves courage and risk.

FWC Works To Protect

Livestock From Panthers


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has confirmed at least
six panther depredations since
the beginning of December in
the Golden Gate Estates area of
Collier County. In the past week
alone, panthers have killed sev-
eral goats and a pig.
Other depredation reports
have come from the Immokalee
area. Some of the most recent
depredations occurred on prop-
erties less than three-quarters of
a mile from each other, off
Golden Gate Boulevard, ac-
cording to the FWC. Over the
past weekend, four goats were
killed east of Everglades Boul-
evard. At the time of all the
depredations, the domestic ani-
mals were not secured in preda-
tor-proof enclosures.
When FWC biologists re-
ceive a depredation complaint,
they visit the depredation site
within 12 hours, as directed in
the Interagency Florida Panther
Response Plan. While at the
site, biologists provide resi-
dents with information about
living near panthers, make hus-
bandry 'recommendations and
advise them of the state and
federal laws that protect the


endangered Florida panther.
"Vigilance is the" key to pro-
tecting people's pets and live-
stock," said Mark Lotz, a biolo-
gist on the FWC's panther team.
"Livestock, such as chickens,
goats and hogs, should be
secured in enclosed structures
at night. Electric fencing also
can be an effective predator
deterrent. Cats and small dogs
should be kept indoors, particu-
larly at night."
If you live near panthers,
there is an increased chance you
may see one. If you encounter a
Florida panther, the FWC rec-
ommends:
Avoid crouching or bend-
ing down;
Do not run or turn away
from the panther;
Stand up tall and face the
animal;
Make eye contact;
Do whatever you can to
appear larger; and
Fight back if attacked.
"Public safety is the FWC's'
top priority," said Capt. Jayson
Horadam, with FWC's Division
of Law Enforcement. "We ask
that people living near panthers
be informed, cautious and
aware of their surroundings."

Preview Show Draws 100+ Exhibitors
Cattle show enthusiasts from 17 Florida counties filled the -Reserve Supreme Grand Champion Cow/Calf-Jessica Hum-


Cattlemen's Arena in Wauchula Dec. 10-11 to participate in the
2010 Hardee County Preview Show.
The family-friendly event, sponsored by Peace River Electric
Cooperative, attracted 190 head of cattle and provided stiff compe-
tition among the more than 100 exhibitors.
The show was judged by Wes Hudson, a national level judge
from Arkansas who is scheduled to judge the National Livestock
Show in Denver soon. "I was very impressed with both the high
quality of cattle and young people who participated in the event,"
said Hudson. "The exhibitors who attended this show will be much
better prepared for their local county and state fairs as a result of
the Preview Show."
Jeff Cornelius, PRECO energy services manager and event staff
member, noted, "This show was only possible by the hard work of
volunteers and the support of business community sponsors.
Because of their support we are able to offer a free clinic and
meals, plus return 100 percent of the entry fees to show winners."

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

75 YEARS AGO
L. Grady Burton, popular 42-
year-old state's aaorney of this
city, threw his sombrero into the
ring for governor and an-
nounced that he would run on a
platform to outlaw one-armed
bandits and two-job state offi-
cers. Other planks include ade-
quate appropriations for full-
term operation of public
schools, support for old-age
pensions and a program to
advertise the state. "I will
pledge myself to promote a
constructive industrial, agricul-
tural and citrus program in
Florida."

Hardee County theatre-goers
will have their last chance to
see Will Rogers, the great
American humorist, on the
screen this weekend as the man-
agement of the Royal Theatre
has booked his last production,
"In Old Kentucky," for a two-
day showing. The greatly loved
American philosopher, who
crashed to his death recently
with Wiley Post in the latter's
plane, had just completed this
picture at the time of the crash.

The Hardee County Seed &
Crate Co. on East Main Street
announces it has all Mr. Farmer
needs, as cucumber headquar-
ters with seven types of cucum-
ber seed. There is a special
price of one dollar per pound, a
limited amount to each cus-
tomer, for Stay Green cucumber
seed. The company also, has
Master Marglobe and Burpee's
Marglove tomato seeds.

50 YEARS AGO
County property owners who
want to claim homestead
exemption for this year and
have not registered their deeds
have two more days to do it.
The tax assessor's office will be
open from Jan. 1 through April
I to file for homestead exemp-
tions, providing the deed is
recorded and the person is liv-
ing on that residence.

A rabid coon was found in
Wauchula near the Coker
Funeral Home and near the ele-
mentary school, causing sani-
tarian George Heine and Police
Chief Paul Johns to ask home-
owners to be sure their pets are
vaccinated. It is the first found
in Wauchula, although some
have been found on the out-
skirts of Wauchula and Zolfo
Springs.

There may be talk of a reces-
sion goino on but Hardee
County has been going through
one of its biggest building
booms, especially on commer-
cial structures, in many years.
Four new buildings have gone
up in Wauchula over the past
six months, plus a new post
office in Bowling Green, the
Bowling Green Medical Center


and numerous new residences
all over the county.

Roger's Market on North
Florida Avenue offers "a store
full of bargains": a giant Cheer
for 69 cents with grocery order;
fresh cabbage, five cents a
pound; a four-pound bag of
apples for 39 cents; spareribs,
39 cents a pound; hog jowl for
23 cents a pound or chuck roast
for 45 cents a pound; and flour
10 pounds for 98 cents.

25 YEARS AGO
Earnest Department Store,
the county's oldest store, closes
this week after 79 years in
Wauchula. The landmark busi-
ness first opened in 1906, sur-
vived The Depression and two
world wars, serving the county
and nearby areas. L.M. Shack-
elford and Joe L. Davis Sr., who
own the building, say they have
several potential customers for
the 7,460-square-foot building.

Victor and Ellen Julius, both
74, have been participants in the
Golden Age games held in
Sanford each year. He partici-
pates 'in tennis singles, table
tennis, and the quarter-, half-
and five-mile bike races. She
participates in decathalon, win-
ning the two-mile race-walk,
sprints and mile race, softball,
high jump, discus and shot put,
getting medals in 1-1 of 15
events in the 69 to 74 age
group.

Businesses supporting Har-
dee County sports programs are
Nicholson Supply Co., Ullrich's
Water Conditioning Service,
Fields Equipment Co., Twins
Restaurant, McCall's Grocery
and Exxon Service, B & S
Harvesters, CF Industries,
Doyle Carlton Jr., Polk Auto
Parts, contractor George T.
Wheeler, American Tractor &

ing Green Canning Co.

10 YEARS AGO
A ,photo shows a workmen
constructing viewing shelters
every 450 feet along the 100-
yard boardwalk at the new
Pioneer Park Animal Refuge,
set to open soon. It will move
animals from cramped cages at
the southeast end of the park to
new spacious quarters and a
more natural setting.

Mandatory garbage pickup
may be coming for area resi-
dents, along with an assessment
estimated to be $150 per year.
This will have to come up for a
public hearing before its ap-
proval.

A kickoff campaign for the
Ambassadors' Club hopes to
bring all local businessmen
together to help plan the coun-
ty's future, explained Economic
Development Council Director
Lew Attardo. All money col-
lected by the Ambassadors'
Club will be set aside to bring
new and expanding comple-
mentary businesses to the coun-
ty.

Greetings from Fort Green!
As cold as we think it is.
guests from up north say how
wonderful this weather is!
Matthew Brown and family
from Tennessee were at church
Sunday morning as they are vis-
iting his parents. Matthew and
wife both said the weather was
great and not cold. Our Pastor,
Brother Steve and Tara. have a
son visiting from Kentucky and -
he was in short sleeves on
Wednesday when we had our
candle light service at church.
The Pastor's daughter and fam-
ily are also visiting from Wis-
consin. Now I would believe
our weather is better than the
weather in Wisconsin but it is
still cold down here!
Barbara and Tim Casey had
grandson, John Yarley and fam-
ily visiting before Christmas.
They loved it down in the sunny
south. He is in the military and
it was the first time his children
got to pick strawberries, ride
horses and all the other country
living things we just take for
granted. Barbara said they had
fun playing outside with their
toys. This was John's home trip
before going to Afghanistan.
This will be his third tour in
Afghanistan.
There are a lot of young men
associated with our church who
are in Afghanistan. Chad Mc-
Abee is currently serving his
third tour of duty and David
McQuaig is slated to go in
April. Tina Owens' grandson,
Dale Owens is currently serving
in Afghanistan. I am sure there
are plenty of other Hardee
County men and women over
there, and we need to remember
to pray for all of them.
We still have our share of
sick. Dawn Watson will be re-
leased to therapy and was able
to come off the ventilator. At
the present she is still in Tampa
General. Ruth McAbee is in the
Sebring Hospital.
Byron Allison said his nmoth-;
er is sick with the flu or some-,
thing similar. They had to post-
pone her scheduled chemo
treatment. Essie Deer is also un-
der the weather and was not
able to attend church with her
hubby, John.


There is no excellent beau-
ty that hath not some
strangeness in the propor-
tion.
-Francis Bacon


three-door hatchback for
$10,995; also a new 2001 Ford
Ranger SLT for lease at $164.94
a month or a 2001 Ford Ex-
pedition SLT for $318.47 a
month.


Our sympathy is extended to
Nancy McQuaig on the death of
her uncle in West Virginia. He
passed away on Christmas day.
Paul Clark sang a beautiful
song Sunday morning and ac-
companied himself on the
piano. He is one talented man.
We had a good Christmas
dinner. Daughter Avie Hoge-
nauer and family and Avis
Sasser ate with us. Avis brought
her standard dish of mustard
greens. I have decided it is the
soil they are grown in, is what
makes them so good. She said
her nephew brought them to
her, already washed and frozen,
just ready to cook. They did not
taste like they had been frozen
and I cook mine just like she
does, so it must be the soil! We
all appreciate that nephew!
Lots of families have their
Santa visit on Christmas Eve
and can leisurely stay in bed on
Christmas morning. In my old
age, I can appreciate that! Santa
always came to our house dur-
ing the night of Christmas Eve
and we got up early Christmas
Day to see what he had brought
us. I remember one year waking
up at 3 a.m. and my Grandpa
building the fire in the fireplace
and my Daddy shinning the car
lights so I could see how to ride
my bike! I'm sure we all went
back to bed but it was standard
to get up at 6 every day.
Our calendar is getting full at
Fort Green Baptist Church. This
New Year's Eve, on Dec. 31, we
will have a chili cook off con-
test for the men, young and old.
There will be live music to en-
joy as we have one last time to
get together as a Church family
in 2010.
On Jan. 22 we are having a
youth fundraiser. This will be a
fish fry beginning at 4 p.m. and
ending at 6. The cost will be $6
per person. The fish wil be
mullet and catfish. Immediately
after the supper, beginning at 6
p.m.', Gulf State Quartet will
have a gospel sing. Come on
out for a good night of eating
and good gospel music.
Remember to pray for one
another, our country and the
military.



Everybody should have a
hobby, even if it's only
avoiding people who want
to talk about theirs.
-Franklin P. Jones

8C The Herald-Advocate, December 30, 2010




Week ending December 26, 2010
WEATHER SUMMARY
Weather Summary: Cold and dry freezing temperatures and
modest rainfall characterized the week. Average temperatures were
four to nine degrees below normal for the reference week. Highs
were in the 70s and lows were in 20s, 30s, and 40s. According to
the U.S. Drought monitor as of December 21, 2010, drought con-
ditions were present throughout Florida with extreme drought con-
ditions along the northeast coastline. Eighty percent of the Florida
Automated Weather Network Stations reported less than half an
inch of rain.
Field Crops: Freeze damage to newly-planted sugarcane was
still being assessed. With mature cane plants, the cold could poten-
tially inhibit sugar from developing.
Vegetables: The effect of low temperatures on fruit and veg-
etable supplies is undetermined. Cold weather slowed growth of
vegetables that would normally be coming into season. Temporary
suspension of trucking restrictions will continue until December
31st to mitigate crop loss. Some producers protected vegetables
with freeze clothes. In Ruskin, remaining tomato crops in fields
from the previous week were lost to the cold. Tomatoes in Naples,
Homestead, and Immokalee sustained significant damage. In the
south, growers reported damage to snap beans, sweet corn, squash,
and tomatoes. Damage was more prominent in fields without ade-
quate watering. In the south, growers reported problems with pep-
per bruising. Market movement consisted of snap beans, cabbage,
sweet corn, bell peppers, radishes, squash, tomatoes, and strawber-
ries.
Floriculture and Nursery: Growers continued to protect
plants with cloths, blankets, sprinkling systems, and heaters. Some
nurseries were running heaters in greenhouses non-stop to keep
plants warm.
Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition decreased
slightly from the previous week due to cold temperatures and con-
tinued dry conditions. Most pasture in the Panhandle and northern
areas ranged from poor to fair condition. The cattle condition
ranged from very poor to excellent with most in good condition.
Hay and supplements were being fed to cover the lack of forage. In
the central areas, the pasture condition ranged from very poor to
fair. There was limited small grains and ryegrass planted for graz-
ing this year and those acres were struggling due to dry soil condi-
tions. The condition of cattle ranged from very poor to good with
most fair to good. Ranchers were feeding hay. In the southwestern
areas, the pasture condition ranged from very poor to good with
most poor to fair. Pasture grass was thinning. The cattle condition
was mostly fair. Statewide, the condition of the cattle ranged from
very poor to excellent with most in fair to good condition. The live-
stock auctions were closed for the holidays.
Citrus: Highs during the early part of the week were in the 60s
and 70s, with early morning lows in the 40s and 50s, dropping to
lows in the 20s and 30s as a cold front hit the area on Sunday. All
25 stations recorded some precipitation this week. Citra reported
the most precipitation with 0.84 inch of rainfall. Indian River,
Brevard, and St Lucie counties experienced extreme drought con-
ditions, while surrounding counties experienced severe conditions.
Moderate to extreme drought conditions extend over most of the
citrus area. Forty-four packinghouses and fourteen processors have
opened with a few more scheduled to open. Cultural practices
included harvesting, application of lime, and irrigation.


Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football fans, the bowl season is under way. BYU,
Northern Illinois and Troy have won the first three bowl games of
the season. Louisville, Boise St., San Diego St. and Troy have also
been bowl winners. The Swami has gotten three correct out of the
first seven games. Bowl games have different factors than regular
season games, not that the Swami is making excuses. Those are
playing for a coach who is leaving.
Paterno versus Urban Meyer could be interesting. There are
many rumors this will be Jo Pa's last game. Normally, a team wins
the last game for the outgoing coach. Bowden, Lloyd Carr at
Michigan and Don Nehlen at West Virginia are a few examples.
Other reasons are a team that underperformed during the sea-
son tries to make a statement. Some try harder for conference pride.
Often, it is how the coach approaches the game. It's either a reward
or a mission. There are 35 bowl games culminating with the Ore-
gon versus Auburn showdown for the National Championship.
The coaching carousel is turning fast with several schools get-
ting involved. Mike Leach will not get back into the game replac-
ing Ralph Freidgen at Maryland. The Terps are still looking for a
coach. Rumors are Leach will be the offensive coordinator at
Oklahoma St. Dana Holgerson, current OSU Offensive Coordi-
nator, will replace Bill Stewart at West Virginia in 2012 after serv-
ing as Offensive Coordinator in 2011. Pitt turned to Miami of Ohio,
The Cradle of Coaches for its new coach Mike Haywood. Al
Golden, who had been long rumored to replace Joe Paterno at Penn
St., took the Miami job. Of course, the Florida Gators have taken
Will Muschamp to guide UF in 2011.Gator fans are awaiting the
naming of coordinators by the new coacll.
Now let's look at this Week's Bill O' Fare... Bowl Week THREE
1. Armed Forces Bowl Dec. 30-Army versus SMU-The
Days of the Pony Express and Death Penalty are behind SMU. The
new version throws the ball and scores a lot of points. Army made
the necessary six wins to get a bowl. SMU 33 Army 21.
2. Pinstripe Bowl Dec. 30-The new bowl in NYC. It will
feature a team from the Big East each year. This inaugural game
will feature Syracuse from the Big East. Kansas St. will be the
opponent. The Orange have played solid basic football all year.
Syracuse 24 Kansas St. 20.
3. Music City Bowl Dec. 30-North Carolina versus Ten-
nessee-This game is a toss-up according to Las Vegas. Both
teams struggled in many games this year and had outstanding
games at times. Edge goes to the Vols playing in their home state
and playing a team from the ACC which an SEC team should beat.
Ten-nessee 31 North Carolina 17.
4. Holiday Bowl Dec. 30-Washington versus Nebraska-
Cornhuskers make a statement in their last game as a Big 12 team.
Nebraska 41 Washington 24.
5. Car Care Bowl Dec. 31-South Florida versus Clemson-
The Tigers will sell this game out and USF will have a minimal fan
base in Charlotte. The Bulls' defense will keep them in it but the
suspect offense will not win it. Clemson 24 USF 13.
6. Sun Bowl Dec. 31-Notre Dame versus Miami-Do the
Canes win one for Shannon? Does this game remind you of the
"Criminals versus Catholics" game of yesteryear? Neither team is
what they were back in those days. Kelly will have the Irish ready.
Notre Dame 34 Miami 14.
7. Liberty Bowl Dec. 31-Georgia versus UCF-Bulldogs
better take this game seriously. The Knights have been known to
play over their heads against better cQmpetition. Georgia 35 UCF
17.
8. Chick-Fil-A Bowl Dec. 31-South Carolina versus FSU--
Noles will not stop Lattimore. The Ole Ball Coach would love to
end the season on a better note than the SEC loss to Auburn. It


would give the Gamecocks a 10-game winning season. South
Carolina 37 FSU 31.
9. Ticket City Bowl Jan. 1-Texas Tech versus Northwest-
ern-This game is in Dallas. The Texas team known for putting up
points should have no trouble with a middle-of-the-road Big 10
team. The Red Raiders come in heavy favorites. Texas Tech 41
Northwestern 27.
10. Outback Bowl Jan. 1-Penn St. versus Florida-Urban
Meyers' last game with the Gators should see him go out with a
win. What if this is Paterno's last game as well? Despite the poor
season by Gator standards, UF should have enough to defeat the
Nittany Lions. UF 30 PSU 21.
11. Capital One Bowl Jan. 1-Michigan St. versus
Alabama-The Tide was disappointed by not winning back-to-
back titles but should have no problem with a Big 10 team. Ala-
bama 35 MSU 24.
12. Gator Bowl Jan. 1-Mississippi St. versus Michigan-
Bulldogs' defense will hold the Michigan QB to a nominal game
and prevail in Rich Rodriguez's last game at Michigan. This season
seems to be tailor made for SEC wins being matched up against so
many Big 10 teams. MSU 27 Michigan 24.
13. Rose Bowl Jan 1-Wisconsin versus TCU-The Badgers'
ground game is expected to wear down the Horned Frogs and send
a message to this little non-BCS school. Don't believe it. TCU will
stun the world in this game. TCU 46 Wisconsin 35.
14. Fiesta Bowl Jan 1-Connecticut versus Oklahoma-This
game is being called the biggest mismatch in BCS history. Mighty
Oklahoma against little upstart UConn which lost to Temple. Yes,
the Sooners who beat Cincinnati 31-29, the Big East Bottom
Feeder who muffed a last minute punt to give the Sooners that win.
Oh by way, the same Cincinnati that UConn beat 38-17. Yes, the
Sooners get all the hype until they take the field against a team out-
side the Big 12. Remember 2007, 84 % of the country and all the
talking heads laughed at West Virginia in this bowl against
Oklahoma too. How did that work out for you Sooner lovers?
Connecticut 24 Oklahoma 21.
15. Orange Bowl Jan 3-Stanford versus Virginia Tech-The;
Cardinal is led by the top QB in college football. Andrew Luck is,
projected the first QB to be taken in the draft this year.' If I had a!:
Heisman Vote, he would have gotten it. This team is well-coached,
and plays intelligent football. The Hokies? Well, they lost to James'
Madison at home. Sure they won 11 straight after that but against:
ACC competition. Stanford 41 Virginia Tech 17.
16. Sugar Bowl Jan. 4-Arkansas versus Ohio St.-Mallet.
throws for over 400 yards and Ohio St. goes to 0-10 against the
SEC. Maybe the Buckeye players can trade their bowl gifts for'
some tats in the French Quarter? Arkansas 34 Ohio St. 23.
