Scheel said the homicide
occurred at about 6:28 p.m. on
Sunday outside Trailer No. I at
4222 Middle Dr. in Grace
Mobile Home Park, which is
situated at the south end of the
city along U.S. 17 and Hardee
Street.
He said the victim suffered a
single gunshot wound to the
head.
Scheel said the victim lived
in Bowling Green, but was not a
resident of Grace Mobile Home
Park. How he came to be at that
mobile home that night remains
under investigation, the chief
said.
Witness accounts of the
crime do not match the sus-
pect's statements, Scheel noted,
adding that the suspect has
admitted to shooting the young
man but that his explanation of
the event does not fit the evi-
dence. "Witness statements are
consistent with the autopsy


findings," he said.
According to Alcala's version
of the crime, he was with others
outside the mobile home at
4222 Middle Dr. and was drink-
ing when he became involved
in a verbal altercation with the
younger man. He was told to
leave, Alcala said.
Alcala went on to tell police

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 56-year-old Wauchula man
has been accused of a capital
crime in the alleged molestation
several years ago of a young
child.
Joseph Raymond Colavito, of
1418 Lisa Dr., was arrested by
Det. David Drake of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office on Dec."
27. He was booked into the

Colavito remained in custody
without bond this week as he
awaits trial.
If ultimately convicted of the
alleged act as charged, Colavito
would face a mandatory sen-
tence of life in prison. Though
the sexual assault of a young
child is a capital offense, the
state Supreme Court long ago
disallowed imposition of the
death penalty for sex crimes.

In Store

For 2011?

What's In Store For 2011'?
A synopsis of happenings ex-
pected in 2011 continues this
week with the three mnunicipali-
ties.
BOWLING GREEN
City Manager Yvonne Kim-
ball summarized the accom-
plishments of 2010 and plans
for 2011 in an open letter to all
city employees just before
Christmas.
Kimball noted that during
this past year the city concen-
trated on community infrastruc-
ture, repaving Main Street and
Lake Branch Road, construct-
ing sidewalks, renovating both
city parks and energy efficient
lighting along U.S. 17.
She states that in 2011, the
city will continue to pay more
attention to utility plants and
water distribution and sewer
collection systems.
One accomplishment achiev-
ed last year was the gaining of
the first ever office building for
the Public Works crew. Kimball
notes that the city is able to
maintain the same level of serv-
ices without raising any fees to
the citizens in the new fiscal
year.

tions against Colavito date back
several years but recently came
to light and were reported to
authorities by the child's moth-
er.
He said the youngster in-
volved has been interviewed by
Child Protection Team experts
at the Children's Advocacy
Center in Bartow, and has
described in detail alleged acts
involving the suspect.
Colavito, the major said, vol-
untarily reported to the Sher-
iff's Office for an interview
with Drake on Dec. 27, report-
edly admitting to inappropriate
activity with the child but
adding, "I am not a child moles-
"er; I'm not a bad person."
Following the interview,


Colavito was placed under
arrest, Dey said.
The alleged activity was a
capital felony in nature, he said.
Dey went on to encourage
adults to be sensitive to changes
in a child's behavior and to lis-
ten to and act on a child's state-
ments which allege or appear to
indicate molestation.
"It's always better to err on
the side of caution," the major
said, noting law-enforcement
and psychological professionals
are well able to determine the
validity of a child's accusations.
"Children are (sexually)
offended far more often than is
reported," Dey concluded in
asking adults to report any sus-
picions to authorities.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
This time it came at the end
of the commission meeting.
Instead of at the start of the
Hardee County Commission
meeting, Commissioner Grady
Johnson waited unti! the last
moments in Tuesday's resched-
uled meeting to again ask for
termination of County Manager
' Lex Albritton.
"I need to bring this back up,
as I did on Dec. 9, The citizens
want a vote on termination of
the county manager. It's the will
of the people. They have said
so. The majority want it," said
Grady Johnson.
Seated next to Grady John-
son, Commissioner Dale John-
son objected. "I have a problem
with bringing it up now. If
everyone in the county wants it,
OK. It greatly impacts a lot, the
visioning committee and all
that's going on now. It should-


n't be haphazardly done. If it's
wanted, put it on the agenda. I
haven't heard all the people say
this."
Grady Johnson replied. "I
didn't politick on the termina-
tion of the county manager, but
it's first and foremost what I
heard from disgruntled citizens.
That's the problem. There's
been no citizen input. If not
today, I put forth for the will of
the people; let them have their
say."
Commissioner Sue Birge
spoke up. "I want to ask you,
Grady, what is the contingency
plan if this went forward? I
heard some of these complaints.
I didn't hear them at every
house. Maybe some just don't
know about it.
"What's the plan? If we let
him go, do we each take over a
department? I'm not a support-
er of Mr. Albritton, but I'm a

Looking Back At 2010's Newsmakers


This article concludes a two-part review of the top stories of 2010
with July through December,
July
With no admissions of guilt and, in fact, one early denial, all
seven Wauchula city commissioners were sentenced Wednesday
morning in Hardee County Court for violation of the state's
Government-in-the-Sunshine Law.
Public opinion notwithstanding, the decision on whether to
contract with the Hardee County Sheriff's Office for law enforce-
ment service rests solely with the Zolfo Springs Town Commis-
sion. But residents appear poised to make that change.
After years of planning, studying, debating and permitting, the
fate of Mosaic's planned extension into Hardee County of its South
Fort Meade Mine and the jobs of all its employees may come down
to the decision of a federal judge in Jacksonville next week.
Over the past month, residents have been searching for the per-
fect name for the female sand hill crane that has been used on dec-
orative banners posted downtown. Main Street Wauchula's Design
Committee designed the banners, and adopted the crane as a city
mascot since Wauchula is derived from the Miqcosoukee Indian
word Wa-tu-la-ha-kee, meaning "call of the crane". After much
thought and consideration, it picked the entry submitted by Mike
Rouse with the name '-Miss Sandy".
The Fourth of July was a day of celebration for most local res-
idents, but it was also a day of remembrance for one local family.
And in honor of the 14-year-old boy who drowned during the fes-
tivities here last year, concerned members of the community have
created a swimming lesson program to prevent future accidents.
August
Kevin Denny. the county's new planner, began work on
Monday enthusiastically as he began "to get up to speed on the


Comprehensive Land Use Pian amendments under way and the
mining overlays".
Finish resignation negotiations or be. terminated. That was the
ultimatum given Wauchula City Manager Rick Giroux on Monday
night, when the Wauchula City Commission scheduled an emer-
gency meeting over audience objections.
Grades are in for Hardee County's five elementary schools-
and down. All ranked as "high-achieving" last year and earned the
top mark of A. This year, only one, Hilltop Elementary School,
retained that A grade.
There will be two new members on the Wauchula City
Commission. Newcomers Russell Graylin Smith- and John
Freeman will replace the only two women on the commission.
Smith defeated longtime Commissioner Connie Speith for Seat 2 at
the table, while Freeman fills Seat 6 vacated by Delois Johnson,
who decided not to seek another term.
September
Counterfeit $20 bills are circuiting locally, the Hardee County
Sheriff Office warns. And while the bills in your wallet may be
legitimate, a counterfeit riote can easily be passed to you in change.
Dey advises caution.
Hardee County School District employees are asking for a five
percent pay raise this year. Further, that wage hike should come in
addition to the "step increase" given to most employees each year
to recognize their added experience and mounting loyalty.
The chairman of the Economic Development Council was
voted off the board Tuesday morning by his fellow board members
after he publicly criticized the EDC and its executive director dur-
ing a County Commission meeting last week.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


A new year is underway, ready or not.
Some new year's resolutions are still in effect after Day 5 of
2011. Some may not have been made yet.
I hope everybody has a great new year. Most people probably
will. In reality some people will not, according to the law of aver-
ages.
Kathleen Parker wrote an interesting column in Tuesday's
Lakeland Ledger, based in part on the 2010 movie "Eat. Pray.
Love." starring Julia Roberts. She left the USA to visit several for-
eign countries on a mission for self-fulfillment.
Parker wrote that people should eat less. Perhaps we could
resolve to eat more healthy foods. The great bodybuilder Charles
Atlas in the 1960s and 1970s was telling his health students to com-
pare their bodies to a modern airplane which needs good clean fuel.
He said our fuel (food) helps determine our health.
Parker noted people should pray privately and should show
Jove by practicing the Golden Rule.
She is opposed to trying to force one's religion on another per-
son and countries invading other countries. She likes peace and
harmony.
Some people have deschb.ldj', ltf*trenr' of 4 at' iap-
pens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it.
I am not an expert on anything'arrd offer only this advice after
experiencing over a half century of life ...
The beginning of a new year can give us a time to pause and
think, to examine our life and see if there are some areas we could
take Baby Steps as mentioned in the 1991 movie with Bill Murray
"What About Bob'?"


2011
Continued From 1A


On the water distribution
side, the city concluded an engi-
neering design for its system as
it plans to embark on a water
main design for the proposed
route along Hardee Street, uti-
lizing a county severance tax
grant. The stimulus money
which funded the lighting proj-
ect along U.S. 17 will be com-
pleted in early 2011.
The New Year will see the
Police Department receiving
.new laptops and another.new
patrol vehicle. The Public
Works Department is also plan-
ning for a new lawn mower and
areas of the city that have trou-
ble with storm water are sched-
uled to be improved.

WAUCHULA.
The city of Wauchula. with
two new commissioners
aboard, has a combination of
ongoing projects to continue
into 2011. reports interim City
Manager Olivia Minshew.
Topping the list is hiring of a
new city manager. The commis-
sion cut the list of candidates to
the top five and will begin set-
ting up interviews in late Jan-
uary.
The city will seek proposals
for an electric supplier after an
attempt at negotiations with
Tampa Electric Co. were unsuc-
cessful and the city gave the
required year's notice of possi-
ble termination of a contract
with that utility service.

about summaries Wauchula's
plans for 2011.

ZOLFO SPRINGS
The town of Zolfo Springs
has a handful of projects for this
year as Town Manager Linda
Roberson sums them up:
The first project will be
repairing and upgrading the
water plant and adding storage
capacity with a Community
Development Block Grant. The
town will be replacing the old
wastewater plant with a new
one and adding more wet
weather storage to satisfy the
State Department of Environ-
mental Protection requirements.
This will' be done with its U.S..
Department of Agriculture
grant/loan.- Economic Develop-
ment Authority grant monies
and part of the CDBG grant
funds.
Roberson expects it will be a
two-year project. And the town
will be putting some road proj-
ects out for bid 'as well.
The second project will be
inventorying and evaluating the
storm water structures for fu-
ture maintenance and repairs,
using Southwest Florida Water
Management District Coopera-
tive Funding.
Lastly, at the end of 2011 will
be the construction of the Fifth
street sidewalks to the school,
done under Florida Department
of Transportation enhancement
funds.

Every family carries a legacy.
For one local college student.
hers begins now.
The Barwick family has
owned and operated the Bowl
of Fun Lanes in Wauchula for
the past 38 years, influencing
their children and grandchildren
to pick up the sport.
Bowling for the past 13
years, recent Hardee High
School graduate Kaitlyn Han-
shaw has been involved in trav-
el leagues, individual and city
tournaments as well as the
returning Pepsi tournament.
From this, she has acquired
$4,000 in scholarships, sending
her on her way to attending the
University of Florida in
Gainesville. She began classes
there Tuesday.
"Once I got accepted my
mom emailed the bowling
coach about what I would need
to do to get on the team. During
a preview in early December, I
was able to meet and play with
the team up there," said Han-
shaw.
If that weren't enough, Han-
shaw's two uncles and mother
bowled collegiately, giving her
the desire to continue the tradi-
tion, with a twist of her own.
"I'm both excited, and confi-
dent to be attending UF and
look forward to becoming a part
of its team. While my uncles
were both Florida State "Noles,
I knew that Gainesville was
closer, and besides, I like to be
different!" exclaimed Hanshaw.
Living in a split house could
be intimidating for some; how-
ever, the Hanshaws embrace
their differences and continue
to support Kaitlyn.
"I won't start supporting the
Gators, but I'll support one
Gator," said her father.

that he did leave, walking to his
own trailer and retrieving a
handgun. Then, he said, he went
back to Trailer No. I to try to
scare the 21-year-old, Scheel
relayed.
In the suspect's version of the
events, he then pulled the hand-
gun, a .38-special, out of the
waistband of his pants and
pointed it at the younger man,
Scheel said. Alcala said the man
stood up and "swatted" at the
gun. Alcala allegedly admitted
to then firing the weapon three
times.
Witnesses, however, said oth-
erwise.
Scheel said witness inter-
views reveal a differing account
of the events. They said the vic-
tim was with them and was
drinking, but that Alcala was
not outside, the mobile home
with them at all.
Instead, they alleged, Alcala
walked up to the victim and
shot him while he was seated in
a chair. The gun was fired two
times, they said.
Scheel noted an autopsy con-
ducted by the Medical Ex-
aminer's Office concluded the
victim was seated when he was
shot. Further, the chief said, two
bullets were found, one inside
the victim and one at the crime
scene.
Scheel said Alcala fled the
scene on foot, heading west
across U.S. 17, but was cap-
tured within 30 minutes' time.
He said the Polk County
Sheriff's Office responded with
a helicopter and patrol units to
assist Bowling Green police.
The Hardee County Sheriff's
Office and the Wauchula Police
Department also assisted, he
said.
In fact, Scheel said, it was
Cpl. Todd Souther and his K-9
"Picus" of the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office who, along
with sheriff's Dep. Michael
Lake, "ran a track" on the flee-
ing suspect and located him in
an orange grove at the south
end of Chester Avenue.
There, Alcala was taken into
custody without further inci-
dent. The weapon, Scheel said,
has not been found.


This becomes the second
murder in Bowling Green in a
period of just over two months.
Prior to an Oct. 31 homicide,
there had not been a murder in
the city since 1996.

Q: Llknow4hiA breastfeed-
ing is good for my baby.
When i-,go bac&to work and
pump breast milk, how long
can I store it?
A: If you pump breast milk
during the workday and have
access to a refrigerator for stor-
age until you leave for home,
that's ideal. However, breast
milk can be safely stored up to
24 hours in an insulated cooler
bag if the milk is in a clean,
sturdy container kept in contact
with an ice pack. It can even be
kept at room temperature up to
77 degrees F. for a few hours if
necessary. Once home, it can be
stored safely up to five days in
the refrigerator if you keep it at
the back where temperatures
are most constant. Some moms
create a little "stash" by pump-
ing extra before returning to
work or over weekends. This
milk can be frozen for two
weeks in a freezer compartment
within a refrigerator, three to
six months if the freezer has a
separate door that keeps the
freezer colder, or six to twelve
months in a completely separate
standing freezer, although qual-
ity is lower at the longer end of
these ranges. Once you thaw
breast milk, refrigerate what
you don't need rather than re-
freezing it. Breastfeeding does
offer many health advantages


AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR
CANCER RESEARCH

for babies and is a health-plus
for mothers, too, reducing risk
of both pre- and post-meno-
pausal breast cancer. Using
breast milk for your baby's only
food for six months and adding
other foods after that is highly
recommended, so the closer
you can come to that goal as
you juggle changing schedules,
the better. The La Leche League
offers a variety of tips for main-
taining breastfeeding in a busy
life.

Q: Are all nuts healthy, or
are some more nutritious than
others?
A: The special nutrient con-
tributions of each type of nut
vary, but all are healthy if you
keep portion sizes small so yours
calorie 'consumption stays on
target for a healthy weight.
Studies with a variety of nuts
show that when people substi-
tute nuts for foods such as fatty
meat and deep-fried foods high
in saturated or trans fats, blood
cholesterol usually declines.
Almonds, walnuts, peanuts,'pis-
tachios, pine nuts and pecans all
have 3 grams or less of choles-
terol-raising saturated fat in a
one-and-a-half ounce serving
(about one-third cup). Nuts
contain mostly monounsaturat-
ed fat; walnuts are high in
polyunsaturated fat, some of
which is an omega-3 fat that's
in the same family with the
heart-healthy fat found in
salmon and other fatty fish.
Cashews 'and almonds are espe-
cially high in magnesium,
pecans are loaded with man-
ganese and pistachios are rich
in vitamin B-6. Brazil nuts are
an outstanding source of the
antioxidant mineral selenium.
Almonds are exceptional
sources of vitamin E, another
antioxidant; hazelnuts, peanuts
and Brazil nuts are also good
sources. All nuts provide vary-
ing combinations of natural
antioxidants, cholesterol-lower-
ing phytosterols, and dietary
fiber and serve as a protein
source, too. Since they all con-
tain 240 to 285 calories per one-
third cup, make sure that you
don't just add nuts to your diet,
but substitute them for less-
healthy foods.

Q: I hear so much about
antioxidants in dark choco-
late providing health benefits.
Does milk chocolate really
offer nothing?
A: In equal size portions with
equal calories, dark chocolate
provides nearly three times the
total antioxidant power that you


get from, milk chocolate, Wac-
cording to USDA data. Studies
show that the higher the nonfat
cocoa solids, the higher the
antioxidant compounds choco-
late contains. But milk choco-
late's antioxidants are also sig-
nificant. In fact, the ORAC
' score (a measure of antioxidant
power) of milk chocolate is
higher than that of red grapes,
blueberries, nuts or almonds if
you compare equal weights of
all foods. But that's not a fair
comparison, since you'd get
many times more calories get-
ting those antioxidants from
chocolate (whether milk or dark
chocolate) than from fruit.
Furthermore, although nuts are
concentrated in calories, they
provide additional benefits
beyond their antioxidants, such
as fiber, protein and other nutri-
ents. To maintain a healthy
weight most people should limit
chocolate to small amounts
daily so it will only provide a
fraction of a day's antioxidant
total compared to antioxidants
from vegetables, fruits, whole
grain, beans, nuts and 'other
selections such as tea or coffee.
Bottom line: You get more
antioxidants from dark choco-
late, but if milk chocolate is
your preference, enjoy it and
keep your focus on a balanced
diet for the health benefits.
Q: Some tofu recipes call
for "pressed tofu." What is
this?
A: Cooks' who use tofu
extensively often say that they
press tofu before use, except for
silken tofu, the Japanese style
smooth, custardy tofu. They say
that by pressing out the packag-
ing liquid that tofu has soaked
up, it can better soak up the fla-
vor of any marinade or cooking
liquid you add. Pressing also
creates a firmer texture, which
works better for grilled or
baked dishes for which you
want tofu to hold its shape. You
can press tofu as a whole block
or in slices. Place a clean dish
towel (which will go straight to
the laundry when youI're done)
or a few paper towels on a cut-
ting board or baking shdet.
Place tofu on top and cover
with another clean dish towel or
more paper towels. Stack one or
more heavy pans on top, and let
it stand from 20 minutes up to
two hours, occasionally press-
ing on it a bit if you like. The
longer you press the tofu, the
firmer the texture will be. If
you're pressed for time, get this
set up and let it press while you
chop and prep the other ingredi-
ents for a meal.

Bowling Green Mayor Perry Knight has called for a special
City Commission meeting Friday night concerning the position of
city manager. He plans to ask for the resignation of City Manager
Yvonne Kimball.

The qualifying period for Zolfo Springs elections ended on
Friday with two incumbents reclaiming their seats and one facing
a challenger. Incumbents Juan Otero and George Neel will begin
new four-year terms in office, as no other candidates applied for the
open slots by the end of the week-long filing period.

October
Alert posse members have led to the discovery of the seventh
suspected marijuana grow house in just under three weeks time.
Upon raiding the targeted residence in Zolfo Springs, Hardee
County Drug Task Force officers allegedly discovered and seized
237 pounds of marijuana, spokesman Maj. Randy Dey said.

Wauchula won't pay the $1,500 legal fees. After unfounded
allegations cost a commissioner his seat for two weeks and cost
him to defend them, his fellow commissioners have denied him
reimbursement.

This year's homecoming has finally arrived! The theme for
this annual parade is Wildcat Cinema. While other themes were
considered, this Disney-surrounding theme was the most popular
with the student council officers from the start. The reason the
council was so taken with the Wildcat Cinema theme is because it
gives the ones working on the floats a wider variety of ideas for
their individual themes.

With a difference of just four votes, a political newcomer has
ousted an incumbent commissioner in the town of Zolfo Springs.
Though ballots were counted by hand after the polls closed at 7
Monday night, it did not take long there were only 56 of them.:
I5iDi White's totaled 26 to Rhonda Long's 30.

November
An incumbent school board member barely clung to her seat at
the end of vote tabulations Wednesday night. The race between Jan
Platt and Garry McWhorter for School Board District 4 turned into
the hottest contest of the night in a county election filled with close
races early on.

A 15-year-old boy who shoved a school official over the dress
code has become the first expulsion of the 2010-11 academic year.
The boy, a ninth grader at Hardee Senior High School, also was
criminally charged with misdemeanor battery.


Friday. The second annual competition tests talent and crowd
appeal, and is a featured show at Main Street Wauchula Inc.'s pop-
ular Friday Night Live event. Friday Night Live will run from 5 to
9 p.m. in downtown Wauchula, in and around Main Street Heritage
Park.

Ben Albritton was sworn in on Tuesday, Nov. 16, in Tallahas:
see as State Representative for District 66, which includes Hardee,
Polk and part of Highlands County. Albritton, 42, is a fifth-genera-
tion Floridian and a lifetime resident of Hardee County.

December
The nationally known drama, "The Story of Jesus" has entered
even another venue, billboards. Rev. Mike Graham, pastor of Real
Life Church, and the producer of "The Story of Jesus," grabbed the
opportunity to assist churches in Polk County with their stand
against atheism there.

Under a new grading system designed to better reflect achieve-
ments, 62 Florida high schools were able to boost their D grades to
a higher level, the state Department of Education said Tuesday.
Hardee Senior High was not one of them. Instead, the school
received its fourth consecutive D grade, making it one of only 58
of Florida's 470 high schools to do so for 2009-10.

A new Wauchula city manager could be in place in the first
quarter of 2011. At Monday evening's meeting of the Wauchula
City Commission, the first step was taken when commissioners
listed their top five preferences from a list of 17 possible appli-
cants. Each had submitted a short or long resume of their experi-
ences, education and reason for wanting the position.

Agriculture has taken a bit of hit in the last two weeks.
Freezing weather, unusual for early and mid-December, took. its
toll on vegetables, citrus, strawberries, plant nurseries and pastures.
It has been complicated by the warm spells between the freezes.
Saturday's daylong soft rain helped some situations.

On a scale of I to 10, coldest to warmest, Hardee County tem-
peratures 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 indus-
try.

IS IT A COLD OR FLU?
While contagious viruses are active year-round, fall and win-
ter are when we are most vulnerable to them. This is due in large
part to people spending more time indoors with others when the
weather gets cold.
Most respiratory bugs come and go within a few days, with no
lasting effects. However, some cause serious health problems.
Although symptoms of colds and flu can be similar, the two are dif-
ferent.
Colds are usually distinguished by a stuffy or runny nose and
sneezing. They may also bring on coughing, scratchy throat and
watery eyes. A cold is caused by a virus. There is currently no vac-
cine for the common cold, and antibiotics have no effect on virus-
es, but work only on bacterial infections. A cold can last from a
week to 10 days, and a sick person can easily infect others during
that time.
Flu comes on suddenly, is more serious, and lasts longer than
colds. The good news is that yearly vaccination can help protect
you from getting the flu. Flu season in the United States generally
runs from November to April, and a flu vaccine is usually easy to
obtain from your physician, health department or drug store. Flu
symptoms include fever, headache, chills, dry cough, body aches
and general misery.
To stay as healthy as possible during the winter months, prac-
tice the following:
Get vaccinated against the flu. A new flu shot is needed
every year since the main flu viruses change every year.
Wash your hands often and teach children to do the same.
Viruses can be passed through coughing, sneezing and contaminat-
ed surfaces, including the hands.
Limit exposure to infected people.
Practice healthy habits like eating a balanced diet, exercis-
ing, getting enough sleep, and keeping stress in check.
If you are already sick, stay away from others, cover your
cough or sneeze, drink lots of fluids and get extra rest. Some over-
the-counter medications may help, like decongestants, cough sup-
pressants, antihistamines or pain relievers for minor aches. But
read those labels! Some should not be taken if you have high blood
pressure, some cause drowsiness, and be careful not to unnecessar-
ily double up on ingredients.
If uncertain, check with your doctor or health care profession-
al. And if you aren't getting better, or if your symptoms worsen, go
see your doctor!
Winter illnesses can often be prevented with good health
-habits. Take good care of yourself!

8A The Herald-Advocate, January 6,2011





-The


This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate. ..
75 YEARS AGO
The allotment for Hardee
County under act of congress
regulating sales of potatoes is
16, '127 bushels, subject to
minor adjustments. The individ-
ual allotments of farmers are
being figured and will be
mailed out as soon as possible.
Ten county schools will
reopen Monday morning. That'
includes the county high school
at Wauchula, the Wauchula,
Zolfo Springs, Bowling Green,
Lemon Grove, Gardner, Lime-
stone and Oak Grove Com-
munity schools. Rural schools
at Pinedale, Lake Branch,
Torrey, College Hill, Center.
Hill and Castalia will re-open at
a later date. All schools will run
their full terms, unless funds
which have been promised fail,
to be appropriated.
Billroy's Comedians tent
show, featuring the noted Palais,
Royale Orchestra, 15 fine
vaudeville acts, and Daphne,
the queen of the fan dancers,
will be at the Beeson Lot at the
city limits on the road to Ona.
Ladies, as usual, will be admit-
ted when accompanied by an
adult paid admission.
One of the features of the,
Krause Greater Shows coming,
to the Strawberry Festival at'
Bowling Green this week is
"Baby Ruth," the fattest girl in!
the world at 742 pounds. She
has appeared at all the leading'
fairs and festivals in the U. S.
and Canada for many years.
Two young boys received
painful hurts Wednesday after-
noon when the bicycle they
were riding was struck by an
automobile, when the driver
was blinded by the lights of an
approaching machine. They
were taken to the nearby office


of Dr. M.C. Kayton, where one
had a broken leg and the other
had painful bruises. The two
youngsters were later removed
to their homes where it is
reported they are resting easily.

50 YEARS AGO
The early rush for 1961
license tags was on early this
week at the office of Tax
Collector Curtis Ezelle. The
first week rush netted sales of
over $7,000, reported Ezelle.
The deadline to get new license
plates is Feb. 20.

The year 1960 was a record
one for Hardee County real
estate buyers as more than
$7,500,000 worth of property
changed hands during the past
12 months. Two large land:,
holdings were finally turned
loose. Both were bought by out-
of-county developers. Leading
was the sale of 4,290 acres of
the lori Brothers holdings in the
northwest part of the county
near Fort Green. Sold in Sep-
tember to a Plant City phos-,
phate dealer, it brought
$490,000. Hardee Groves of
Miami bought the next largest,
1,897 acres of the old Campbell
Ranch property, which will be
planted in groves.

A hearing on the validation of
$185,000 in revenue certifica-
tions for the construction of an
addition to the county jail will
be held on the courthouse steps
by Circuit Judge Gunter
'Stephenson. The bond firm has'
promised the county three and
three quarters percent if the
bond is retired within seven
years. The issue is backed by a
five-mill levy on the county tax
roll.
IGA stores has boneless
chuck roast or lean tender pork
chops for 69 cents a pound. A 2-
pound box of Pillsbury butter-
milk pancake mix is 39 cents.
Small, tender yellow squash or
ripe firm tomatoes are 15 cents
a pound.

25 YEARS AGO -
Hardee Countians shouldn't
expect any great change in
deposit, loan or mortgage inter-
est due to the Jan. 1 deregulat-
ing of interest bearing checking
accounts, say local bankers.
Congress began deregulation'
four years ago. Long-term cer-
tificates of deposit were deregu-
lated first, and two years ago,
banks were allowed to go into
money markets and pay the
market rate. The only change
Jan. 1 was removing the mini-
mum amount that could be.
invested in certain types of sav-
ings.
It is still undecided where to
put the additional lanes in four-
laning 8.2 miles of U.S. 17 from
Wauchula to Bowling Green.
Doyle Parker of Bowling Green
has accused the state Depart-
ment of Transportation of drag-
ging its feet, waiting for
Seaboard to abandon the rail-
road and make its right of way
available for the four-laning.
At the first meeting of the
Hardee County Planning &
Zoning Board for 1986, Robert
Phillips asked for a written
opinion on a proposed 500 to
600-unit mobile home commu-
nity called Pioneer Village on
about 100 acres at the old air-
port property east of Wauchula.
It would include 50,000 feet of
mobile home living space, a
park, playground, pool, security
and other amenities.
DG's Fashions on U.S. 17
South is having a quitting busi-
ness sale. Ladies shoes and
boots, regularly from $7.50 to
$79.99 are now half price,
$3.75 to $39.99; sleek ladies
dresses, which were $28.99 to
$45, are now $14.50 to $22.50,
while selections last.
10 YEARS AGO
Marcus J. Ezelle was in-
stalled as Hardee County's new
. judge on Tue'sday afternoon. He
took the oath of office in a for-
mal investiture ceremony befit-
ting the occasion. Close to 300
people filled the Agri-Civic
Center and nearly every circuit.
and county judge serving in the
10th Judicial Circuit of Hardee,
Highlands and Polk counties
was in attendance.

A 14,400-acre proposed mine
west of Ona is getting a public
look-see next Thursday night at
the National Guard Armory.
The result of nearly monthly
ecosystem team permitting
meetings for over two years, the.
application to mine details all
facets of mining and reclama-
tion expected over the next 30-,
40 years.

County officials are shown
taking the oath of office from
Circuit Judge Susan W. Roberts
to start the new year. In photo
were Supervisor of Elections
Dean Cullins, who replaced
recently retired William "Son-
ny" Coker; Tax Collector
Zerelda "Zee" Smith; Property
Appraiser Carolyn Coker; and
Sheriff J. Loran Cogburn.

Real estate offers this week
include: a .- UK, 1 u1, name
home on 1.55 acres with above-
ground pool and shed for
$54,500; a well-maintained,
and updated 4 BR, 1.5 B CB
home for $65,000; and a 3 BR,
2B CB home in Wauchula with
central air/heat and vinyl pool
,for $65,000.
The first question I ask
myself when something
doesn't seem to be beauti-
ful is why do I think it's not
beautiful. And very shortly
you discover that there is
no reason.

In Luke 5:38 Jesus taught that
new wine must be put into new
bottles, and both are preserved.
Question: What is being saved,
and what would be lost if action
is not performed?
This question was given unto
me. Let the answer be within
our heart and may this
Christmas we reflect on the
birth of Christ. Let's not forget
his teachings.
I pray that you all continue to
do the same.
Mr. Kelly, you have been'a
good friend to allow me to
share my understanding of our
Lord's teaching. I thank you
with His love.
I will keep you in my prayers
and may the Father's Spirit be
with you and your families, as
our time moves toward His
coming. Father, watch over us
in Jesus' name. Amen.

Dear Editor,
It is a blessing when one
begins to understand the teach-
ings of Jesus as the years have
passed during my time in cap-
tivity (prison). I have been see-
ing Christ's mighty spirit con-
tinue to guide me.
From time to time the
Almighty has given many
opportunities to share the teach-
ings of Jesus of Nazareth. So on
this day let us all continue to
praise the Eternal Father and
Christ.
Jesus has always taught by
questions in keeping with
Jesus' method.
In Luke 5:24 Jesus taught that
one may know that the Son of
Man has power upon earth to
forgive you. Question: What
was Jesus revealing to the peo-
ple?
In Luke 5:35 Jesus taught that
the days will come when the
bridegroom shall be taken away
from them, and then they shall
:fast in those days. Question:
Why must one fast then?

Want a Quick Moal?


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
In a time of instant gratification, fast
food retails have exploded, leaving the
beloved home-style restaurants strug-
'gling.
Within the past 12 years, numerous
fast food restaurants have made an
appearance around the county; however,
one "Mom & Pop" eating place has
endured as well.
Kings Fries has become a favorite to
the town of Fort Green. With its location,
it has grown to be centered towards the
mine, power plant and prison workers, as
well as attracting locals from time to
time.
"We have daily specials to change up
the menu and attract customers. They
may not want our particular special but it
keeps them wondering and returning
back," said owner Donnie Waters.
Twelve years ago, Kings Fries began


with a trailer and a dream, expanding to
what can now be seen with a patio for the
customers to enjoy their meal and a back

Week ending January 2, 2011
WEATHER SUMMARY
Weather Summary: A cold front swept the State early in the
week of December 27 through January 2. Freezing temperatures set
new record lows across the Sunshine State. Unseasonably cold
temperatures averaged one to five degrees below normal. Hard
freezes and frosts occurred in several regions from the Panhandle
down to the southern Peninsula. Evening lows were in the lower
20s and 30s with the wind chill factor in the teens at several sta-
tions. Areas recording lows in the teens included Alachua,
Brooksville, Okahumpka, Quincy, and Tallahassee. Most.daytime
highs we'ein the 70s. Towards the end of the week temperatures
warmed up with a few areas recording at least one high in the 80s.
Rainfall ranged from none to over an inch in a few localities. Jay
recorded two and a half inches of rain. The cold temperatures cou-
pled with the continuous dry weather sparked several dry land
wildfires across Florida.

Field Crops: Sugarcane growth was stopped due to the freeze.
Growers were harvesting when the bitter, cold weather hit. Some
plant cane which will be used for seed next season was destroyed.
Planting of potatoes was halted due to extreme drought conditions
in Flagler County. Actual potato seed was not affected by the frigid
temperatures. Cotton, peanut, and soybean growers disked and
conducted soil tests for the upcoming growing season.

Vegetables: Harvesting of vegetables was hindered due to
sub-freezing temperatures. Growers were trying to recover and
assess damage from prior freeze when the latest freeze hit. To assist
growers, the state of emergency for agricultural crops that was
issued prior was extended. The order raised weight restriction on
trucks carrying agricultural products so growers could harvest and
ship as much produce as possible to reduce production loss. Some
producers put freeze cloths over vegetables for protection. Nearly
80 percent of the sweet corn crop in western Palm Beach County
was destroyed from the first cold snap. Sweet corn producers in
Homestead were assessing the extent of the damage to younger
plants. Snap beans were impacted by the freeze. A number of grow-
ers for snap beans and sweet corn used helicopters for cold protec-
tion to prevent frost from settling on crops. Cabbage development
was delayed due to the cold spell. Strawberries were able to survive
the freeze as growers ran overhead sprinkler systems to form ice
caps on berries. The cold weather will delay the berries growth and
development. Harvesting of snap beans, eggplant, bell peppers, and
strawberries was curtailed due to cold weather. Only light ship-
ments of vegetables were available for marketing with some ship-
ments completely halted due to cold weather.

12A The Herald-Advocate, January 6, 2011


Kin,
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
To say that former Wildcat
Jermain King has been a suc-
cess at college is an understate-
ment.
The 2007 Hardee Senior
HIJgh School graduate not only
broke four all-time records at
West Virginia State University.
He did it while maintaining a
3.0 grade point average.
King, of Bowling Green, is
the son of Linda Outley and
James King. They and older sis-
ters Amanda and Sylvia Outley
are proud of his accomplish-
ments and excited at the possi-
bility he could play pro football.
King takes all the accolades
in stride. He has had pro scouts
looking at him since his junior
year playing for the Yellow
Jackets. He began as third string
X receiver, kept working at it
and was a starter by his junior
year.
In the fall of 2007, he had 56
receptions for 562 yards and
three touchdowns, averaging 10
yards per catch, 56 per game.
By 2008, that was 51 recep-
tions, but for 722 yards and
eight TDs., an average of 14.2
per carry and 72.2 per game.
Stats were a bit down in 2009
as the Jackets went more to the
run game. Still, King racked up
53 carries for 692 yards and 7
TD, the longest 50 yards. He
averaged 13.1 per reception and
69.2 per game. The past season
was stellar. In 10 games, he had
69 receptions for 944 yards and
25 TDs, an average of 12.8 per
carry and 73 per game.
By the end of his college
career, he had 2,920 all-time
pass reception yards of, 229
pass receptions and 25 pass
receptions for TDs to add to his
5.72 career average reception.
All four are new records for
West Virginia State.
He ranks second on the all-
time list of total points scored
-150, and touchdowns scored,
in a season-25. He moved up
to third on all-purpose yards
(rushing and passing) with 3003
and is tied for fourth in respon-
sible for TDs.


Breaks 4 Records


COURTESY PHOTO
After breaking four records in his four-year college career, Jermbin King (25) was an
easy selection for the Historically Black College conference All-Star team for the East
squad, which won 24-16.


West Virginia State, a college
of about 5,000 students, is a
member of the West Virginia
Intercollegiate Athletic Con-
ference, a Division II school.
King is one of five seniors on
the young Jackets team, and has
enjoyed the direction of offen-
sive coordinator Kip Shaw and
reception coordinator Earl
Monroe, who placed at the
University of Miami in the '70s.
Actually selected as an alter-
nate to the East-West HCBU
(Historically Black Colleges
Union), King spent a week in
early December in Atlanta
where the Falcons play, prepar-
ing for the Dec. 18 game. On
Sunday, Dec. 12, a bunch of pro
scouts were present when all 32
players were at the weigh-in.
Besides double, measurements
of height and weight, the ath-
letes were tested in the three-
cone, verticals and 40-yard
spring. King didn't do the lifts
due to a shoulder injury. He was
noticed by scouts from the New
Orleans Saints, Jacksonville


If there is one thing worse than being an ugly duckling in
a house of swans, it's having the swans pretend there's
no difference.
-Teena Booth


Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, had
had prior evaluation by the
Kansas City Chiefs and was
scouted last summer with a
highlight tape by the Pittsburgh
Steelers.
If he is successful in playing
in the pros, King hopes to have
the opportunity to purchase a
house for his mother, who "has
had the struggle of raising him
and his sisters."
He relates that he chose West
Virginia State after a visit there
and contacts with Coach Shaw,
"who has become a father fig-
ure for me."
King relates the adjustment to
college life. "At first, I was
lonely. Other players began
calling me 'Ocho' because I
play kinda like Chad Johnson.
That nickname helped me get
involved. The coaches were
insistent that academics came
first and everyone should grad-
uate. All freshmen have to go to
study hall, as well as other play-
ers with less than a 2.0 aver-


age.
He attributes his academic
success to good high school
preparation, where he carried a
3.8 GPA. He says English
papers and work in math in high
school made his college transi-
tion easier. "I was able to get a
96 average in freshman algebra
because of my high school
work and there are a lot of
papers to write.
"College is different because
you're on your own. There's
more free time and it's how you
manage it. You might have a
class at 8 a.m. and not another
until late morning. You can do
some homework or library
work. You can't be lazy.
Practices were from 3 to 5:30
p.m. most afternoons."
King is obtaining a bache-
lor's degree in business man-
agement and hopes to get a
master's in sports management.
He would eventually like to be
an athletic scout or work in a
sports management office.


Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until night-
fall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day.
Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, 'till
the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER'

Michael A Guido
Mrner. Georga


Ray Valine of California lost his
job. It made so many wrinkles on
his head that he had to screw his
hat off.
Then he thought of a novel way to
support his family. He turned his
head into a billboard.
He shaved it, printed four ads on
it, and wandered through the
streets of Sacramento. He made
$100 a day.
That's using your head, isn't it!
The Christian, too, is a walking
billboard for the Lord, "known and
read of all men."
Are you a good ad, drawing
others to the Lord; or a bad ad,
driving others from the Lord?
How do you communicate
. Christ?

By Machelle Dollar


SHIE'S BACK!-Edna Morris, of Miz Edna's Country Diner,
has made her mark all over Hardee County, only to return once
again to Wauchula.
A born and raised Hardee Countian, Morris had located her
businesses in downtown Wauchula and in Zolfo Springs until the
2004 hurricanes put her out of business. This Thanksgiving, the
Morrises were more than grateful as they reopened their beloved
business.
"We realize that we are a 'new' business and it will take some
time to get adjusted, however, in the past we have been as busy to
have standing room only," said Morris.
'We want all of our old customers to know that we're back and
better than ever. We continue to offer our country cooking' and keep
our main concern of satisfying our customers. If you don't tell us
when something is wrong, we won't know," she added.
The restaurant is located on U.S. 17 South, at 705 S. Sixth Ave.
to be exact, and is open Sunday through Friday from 7 a.m. until 3
p.m.

Miz Edna's Country Diner offers old-fashioned country
cooking for breakfast and lunch. Pictured above are
Edna and Jerry Morris.

GROWING TREE-Magnolia Tree has recently undergone
a change in Management. Kelly Pace bought the store the first of
October, looking tor an "investment for the future."
Pace noted her familiarity with retail throughout her life. Since
2008, she has worked, and is still currently working, at Jellybeans,
as well as previously working at Cat's on Main.
Magnolia Tree will continue to offer women contemporary
and Columbia clothing as well as Brighton jewelry and Reefs. Pace
classifies her store as a "women's boutique with a men's line and
accessories."
"We are trying to reach a wide market, focusing on accessibil-
ity. to make the strip a one-stop shop. I'm wa king to stay in line
with Cat's and Jellybeans so that if yotrcan't tind it here you can
find it there and won't have to leave town for anything," Pace said.
By February, Pace is looking to have a full store with the new
spring line in.
The store is located in the Town Center at 110 N. Sixth Ave.
and is open Sunday-Thursday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., with an
early closing at 1:30 on Saturdays.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
"Be just and fair to all," says
the Lord. "Do what is right
and good . Blessed are
those who are careful to do
this. Blessed are those who
honor My Sabbath days of
rest by refusing to work and
blessed are those who keep
themselves from doing
wrong."
Isaiah 56:1a-2 (NLT)
FRIDAY
Avoid sexual looseness like
the plague! Every other sin
that a man commits is done
outside his own body, but
this is an offense against his
own body.
I Corinthians 6:18 (Phillips)
SATURDAY
God, put me on Your salva-
tion agenda; take note of the
trouble I'm in. I've had my fill
of trouble, I'm camped on the
edge of hell . Your love,
God, is my song, and I'll sing
it! ... I'll never quit telling the
story of Your love.
Psalm 88: 2, Psalm 89 1a2 (ME)
SUNDAY
And, we urge you, brothers,
warn those who are idle,
encourage the timid, help the
weak, be patient with every-
one. Make sure that nobody
pays back wrong for wrong,
but always try to be kind to
each other and to everyone
else.
I Peter 5:14 (NIV)
MONDAY
It is better to finish some-
thing than to start it. It is bet-
ter to be patient than to be
proud. Don't become angry
quickly, because getting
angry is foolish.
Ecclesiastes 7:8-9 (NCV)
TUESDAY
And now, my friends, all that
is true, all that is noble, all
that is just and pure, all that
is lovable and gracious,
whatever is excellent and
admirable-fill all your
thoughts with these things.
Philippians 4:8 (NEB)
WEDNESDAY
A mirror reflects a' man's
face, but what he is really
like is shown by the kind of
friends he chooses ..
The purity of silver and gold
can be treated in a crucible,
but a man is tested by his
reaction to men's praise.
Proverbs 27:19, 21 (TLB)

A bird does not sing
because it has an answer.
It sings because it has a
song.
-Chinese proverb


My name is Allie.

I'm missing my mommy.

I need help finding my
way home. I can't be
left outside, I have
special needs.

EVERYTHING IS


been married 41 years, blessed
with three sons, two daughters,
11 grandchildren and eight
great-grandchildren. While liv-
ing in Quincy. Ill., Larry retired
from his own construction com-
pany, laying concrete and road
work. Ruth retired as a hair-
dresser as well as helping with
Larry's business.
After snow birding in Texas
along the coast they thought
they'd try Florida inland and
found Pioneer Creek. and have
been here since 1988, before it
became a Wilder Park. The
friendliness of this park kept
them here and found them in
the first couple of years staying
busy pouring cement pads.
Becoming active they be-
came the first ice cream social
chairmen and chaired it for the
next five or six years. They
became interested in shuffling
and heard about tournaments
outside the park and started par-
ticipating, and it is now as it is


today, successful. Larry has
served on the executive board
for eight years and was Presi-
dent for years of the Central
Florida District, and went into
the Hall of Fame in 2008, as
President and in 2010 was
inducted into it as a player,
earning his 100 points. Ruth has
qualified for the State Hall of
Fame, and will be inducted on
Jan. 17, at Ft. Pierce, and she
will be inducted into Central
Florida District Hall of Fame in


March. In 2007 she won the
United States National Champ-
ionship and has won two, back-
to-back Master Championships
in 2008 and 2009.
They have been a valuable
asset to our park and especially
for the shuffle board arena, put-
ting Pioneer Creek on the top of
the list of Wilder Parks for shuf-
fle board recognition. This sea-
son we will be hosting the shuf-
fle board tournaments for the
Wilder Corporation in Florida,

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, the bowl season has once again confirmed
that the Big 10 Conference is the laughing stock of college football.
Why should this conference get an automatic BCS Bowl and oth-
ers do not? Why does ESPN allow Kirk Herbstriet and Robert
Smith to run their mouths with "Michigan St. should have had a
BCS game over Connecticut and others?" The Big 10 should not
even be guaranteed the Pizza Bowl and others like it. What's the
difference between the Big 10 and the Mid-American Conference?
Bigger stadiums are about all. New Year's Day 2011 will go down
in Big 10 land as the "date that will live in infamy."
The SEC started 0-3 but had an impressive New Year's Day
over the inferior Big 10. Auburn should make it 5 years in a row
for a National Champion coming from the SEC.
The coaching carousel is still going around. When will
Michigan fire Rodriguez? Amazingly it didn't happen at the con-
clusion of the Gator Bowl where he lost, giving up 52 points to
Mississippi St. More stunningly is chatter that Maryland, Pitt and a
few others might be interested in Rodriguez. Pitt fired Wannstedt
without a plan obviously. Then they hired Haywood from Miami
who didn't last a month. Paterno is adamant he is not retiring. At
84, JoPa is still relevant. Urban Meyer went out a winner. Now
where will he go? Announcing booth? How long will Richt be at
Georgia? The Dawgs lost to a non-BCS team that had NEVER won
a bowl game. The next week should be interesting for coaches.
The Big East has a 3-2 record thanks to USF, Louisville and
Syracuse. The Bulls looked impressive in beating Clemson. Syra-
cuse got an impressive win over the Big 12 when it took out Kansas
St. West Virginia with it's coaching turmoil mailed it in and
Connecticut just could not pull it off as Oklahoma FINALLY won
a BCS Bowl Game.
Now let's look at this Week's Bill O' Fare ... Bowl Week Four
1. Go Daddy.Com Bowl-This bowl pits MAC Champ Miami
of Ohio against 6-6 Middle Tennessee from the Sun Belt. Miami is
without its coach who took the Pitt job only to be fired before he
coached a down. Will the change open the door for MTSU'?
Miami 34 MTSU 24.
2. Cotton Bowl-Texas A&M versus LSU. Two old rivals
renew a longtime chapter of good games. LSU won 10 games but
luck played a big part in three of those while the Aggies won 9.
Look for a hard-hitting game with Les Miles lucking out again.
LSU 27 Texas A&M 24.
3. BBVA Compass Bowl-Pitt 7-5 takes on the Kentucky
Wildcats 6-6. The Panthers saw their Big East hopes drained at
home when West Virginia blew them out Thanksgiving Weekend.
UK won 2 of the last 3 to get eligible. Kentucky 33 Pitt 17.
4. San Francisco Bowl- Nevada 12-1 versus Boston College 7-
5. Nevada beat Boise St. The ground game is very solid. Boston
College? Doug Flutie threw a Hail Mary Pass 27 years ago. Nevada
35 BC 14.
5. BCS National Championship-Oregon Ducks bring the
"Quack Attack" to match Cam Newton and the Auburn Tigers.
Look for the SEC speed on defense to string out the Ducks and
contain them enough that they cannot overcome Newton and his
offense. Auburn 45 Oregon 31.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Know it sounds crazy but
before we know it, it will be
Christmas, the way the time
flies!
Fort Green Baptist had a fun
and good New Year's Eve pro-
gram. The different varieties of
chili made for some good eat-
ing, not to mention the delicious
desserts. The winners of the
chili-cooking contest for the
mild were Dustyn Waters, first
place, followed by Jordan
Chancey and Lee Chancey.
Dan Duke won the hot followed
by Wayne Simino and Mike
Davis.
Our own Elvis, Lee Chancey,
provided the music, which was
also good with some of the
musicians playing who had not
been here for a long time.
Chris Chancey told me it was
probably the first time he had
played down here in 15 years!
John Deer and Sherman Cooper
each sang some gospel songs.
One would be surprised to
know all the different items that
people consider important to do
on New Year's Day. The Chan-
cey family never washes
clothes on this day, and I have
adopted that custom. My family
always said whatever you did
on New Year's Day you would
do all year, and if a stranger
came to your house, if it were a
man you would have good luck
all year and if a woman, then
bad luck!
My family always believed
you should have your Christ-
mas tree down by New Year's
Day or you would have bad
luck. This probably stemmed
from us going to the woods and
cutting our tree, a longleaf pine,
which would be dead by New
Year's Day!
It is good to remember all the
traditions in your family and
give thanks for all of our abun-
dance!
Clay Samuels celebrated his
10th birthday last week while
visiting his grandparents, Don-
ald and Mary Samuels, in Fort
Green. I enjoyed a slice of
birthday cake after Clay
explained his race car to me.
He races in Balm and drives car
number 5. He has many spon-
sors and has won six times. He
showed me his trophies.
His car is very sate and his ,,
suit and gloves are double fire-
proof as is his helmet. His car
has a Hans, which eliminates
the possibility of his neck get-
ting hurt, and also straps so his
hands cannot go out of the car
should he have a wreck. Clay
showed me his earplugs that are
custom fitted to his ears, and he
has a radio which he can hear
on, telling him how he is doing,.
etc, only he cannot talk back to
them. His quote was he has to
"stay focused" and try not to
crash!
Chrysta Chancey's sister,
Debra, visited Betty and Clint
Walker on Wednesday, the 29th.
Debra, Chancie, Bryan and lit-
tle Levi were here from Crystal
River. This was the first time
that Betty was able to see her

new great-grandson. They all
enjoyed the fellowship together.
We still have a lot of sick in
our community. Mrs. Ruth Mc-
Abee is home and her daughter,
Lisa, is staying with her. Dawn
Watson is still in Tampa Gen-
eral. They have not been able to
move her to rehab yet. Brother
Eddie Kennedy is home. Mrs.
Jane is taking care of him, but
he is bedridden.
Ronnie Thomas called the
pastor and advised he had
developed some knots on his
neck and it is believed they are
the dreaded "C" word. Brandy
Horne, the granddaughter of
Earl and Mary Bargeron, will
undergo thyroid surgery on
Tuesday to remove some
growths. Beth Sasser completed
all her foot surgery during the
Christmas break, but is still
completing rehab.
All of these need our prayer,
and us healthy ones need to be
thankful that it is not us "stand-
ing in the need of prayer" for
sickness.
Our sympathy is extended to
the family of Charles Ray
Cowart on the death of his wife,
Mary. Years ago, when the local
hospital was Hardee Memorial,
Mary worked there and so did I.
She was a very good nurse.
We will have a Methodist
Cemetery workday on Jan.. 15,'
and a gospel sing and fish fry
on Jan. 22 at the Fort Green.

Please remember to pray for'.
each other, our military, our;
nation and our churches.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE:
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District is proposing
to amend the following ruless:
40D-400.550, F.A.C.
Noticed General Environmental
Resource Permits are limited to
those activities which have been
pre-determined to have minimal
individual and cumulative im-
pacts to the water resources of
the District. Persons desiring to
conduct activities that qualify for a
noticed general permit provide
notice to the District by submit-
ting an application and fee at
least 30 days prior to undertaking
the activity, during which time the
District will advise if the proposed
activities qualify for the requested
permit. A new noticed general
permit is proposed to allow farms
and nurseries to conduct certain
specified minimal activities involv-
ing passive surface water man-
agement systems that avoid wet-
land areas and rely on vegetated
buffers to prevent any water qual-
ity or quantity impacts. Qualifying
activities include farm worker
housing, produce stands and
vehicle loading and staging
areas. Existing rules require a
higher level permit for these activ-
ities. Implementation of this
noticed general permit will
reduce permitting costs for small
farm and nursery businesses and
regulatory costs for the District,
for the activities that qualify for
this permit.
The Notice of Proposed
Rulemaking appeared in the
Florida Administrative Weekly,
Vol. 36, No. 52, 40D-400.550,
F.A.C., on December 30,2010. A
copy of the proposed rule can be
viewed on the District's website at
http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/rul
es/proposed/details/33/

ED REGARDING THE PRO-
POSED RULES AND A COPY OF
THE PRELIMINARY DRAFT OF
EACH, IS: Pam Gifford, CLA,
