Judge Halts Mosaic Move Into Hardee


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
A federal judge on Friday
banned Mosaic from extending
its South Fort Meade Mine until
its plan can be reviewed to
determine if alternatives could
result in less damage being
done to the environment.
U.S. District Judge Henry


Lee Adams issued a preliminary
injunction and is requiring the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
to explore other options on the
planned 10,750-acre extension,
into northeastern Hardee
County before mining can
begin.
Adams' ruling stated, "The
plaintiffs (Sierra Club and two


other environmental groups)
have demonstrated substantial'
likelihood of success on the
merits on their claim that the
Corps issued the permit in vio-
lation of the Clean Water Act."
The ruling came following a
July 22 hearing at the federal
courthouse in Jacksonville and
after written summaries were


subm;ited to the judge by the
parties involved.
Under the original permit,
Mosaic planned to mine 534
acres of wetlands and disturb
more than 56,000 feet of
streams that flow into Peace
River.
The plan did set aside 3,169
acres that would not be mined


and left in a permanent conser-
vation easement, which in-
cludes 969 acres of wetlands.
Mosaic immediately ap-
pealed the ruling Monday and is
asking the U.S. 11th Circuit
Court of Appeals in Atlanta to
set aside Adams' ruling of a pre-
liminary injunction.
Adams has not decided on a
permanent injunction.
If Mosaic cannot get the rul-
ing overturned, it will shut
down the mine beginning in
September until the Corps of
Engineers can review the proj-
ect.
It is unclear how long this
could take, but it will probably
be several months or even a
year or more.
If the mine is closed indefi-
nitely, nearly all of the 221
employees of the mine would
be laid-off. A few employees
would remain to monitor some
clay settling areas and other


environmental requirements,
and some maintenance work
would be needed on the plant.
Adams' ruling went on to say,
"Without a preliminary injunc-
tion, plaintiffs and the environ-
ment will suffer irreparable
harm which outweighs any,
harm to defendants (Mosaic and
the Corps of Engineers).
"'Lastly, the court finds that
the public interest favors the
issuance of a preliminary
injunction to protect the envi-
ronment while the permit deci-
sion is remanded to the Corps."
Mosaic is allowed to mine
the uplands on the property, but:
because of the various ponds,
streams and wetlands to maneu-
ver around, it claims it is not
economically feasible to do so.
Gary "Bo" Davis, vice presi-
dent of Mosaic's phosphate
operations, said in a statement,
"The injunction entered Friday

Sanctuary Director Patti Ragan admired LaToya Jackson's shoes when the star came to visit Bubbles. Jackson asked
her size 7-1/2, the same as the shoes and then dangled the Oscar de la Rentas out the car window, giving them
to Ragan as a parting gift as she left Wauchula. Ragan now hopes to auction them off to raise money for the center.

Great Ape Center Deals With Fame

World Attention Because Of Bubbles Doesn't Alter Mission


By SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
For The Herald-Advocate Intern
Ever since the death of pop-icon Michael Jackson,
Wauchula has received worldwide attention because his
famed chimp, Bubbles, has made Hardee County his
home.
Bubbles, who was rescued from a compound in


Wauchula

Millage

The Same
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hoping to do more with less,
the Wauchula City Commission
will not raise its tax rate.
Because of a reduction in
property values, in order to
raise the same amount of tax
dollars as this year, the city
would have to raise its millage
to the roll-back rate of 5.675.
But, the commission unani-
mously agreed in Monday
evening's workshop to stay at
the current level of 5.442.
The first or tentative budget
hearing is set for 6p.m. on Sept.
13, at the beginning of the regu-
lar monthly commission meet-
ing. The second or final budget
hearing is at 5 p.m. on Sept. 27,
before the code enforcement
board nep fk that mp" ti room.
See WAUCHULA 3A


Hollywood, Calif., has been ,the topic of many radio
programs, television shows and print articles through-
out the world. Although this attention has lighted up the
phone lines at the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula,
the sanctuary has not been drastically affected accord-
ing to Director Patti Ragan.
"Nothing has really changed at the sanctuary. It has-
n't brought much more money, but a lot of interest,
though. Celebrities like Emma Watson have joined the
adoption program for Bubbles. However, the main
impact has been on the office because of the amount of
calls we receive," she said.
With the anniversary of Michael Jackson's death,
the media has once again taken an interest in the life of
his former pet. One group in particular showed a desire
to meet with Bubbles and explore his new home.
Although 95 percent of all requests to film are denied
by the sanctuary, one wish was granted.
When the producers of Animal Planet first asked to
film at the sanctuary they were turned away with the
same answer many have received over the past year.
However, after a phone call from the attorneys for
Michael Jackson's estate explaining how iconic
Bubbles was to Michael Jackson and asking permission
to come and film, Ragan decided to make an exception.
"Although we did turn them down at first, I decid-
ed to allow it because there have been a lot of lies
spreading throughout the media and this will give peo-
ple a chance to get the true story about Bubbles," Ragan
said.
With the final OK from the sanctuary, the film
crew from Animal Planet ventured down to little ol'
Wauchula to shoot the documentary, "Michael Jackson

Johnny Parker reports operating Caring People Ministries in
Bowling Green costs aout $10,000 a month. CPM is a faith-based
ministry that helps women recover from addictions. The location is
5119 Mason Dixon Ave.
The recovery center needs donations. Call 375-3377.
There are over 140 million orphaned children throughout the
world, reports the Florida Baptist Children's Home in Lakeland.
Dr. Jerry Haag of the FBCH says children need to be told the
importance of education and working hard to do their best in
school. "We believe that education is a critical pathway to life
beyond the cycle of destructive lifestyles that have victimized so
many of the kids in our care."
A recent poll shows Florida Gov. Charlie Crist has a good lead
over his rivals for the U.S. Senate race on Nov. 2. His old nickname
was Chain Gang Charlie as a state senator being tough on crime.
His new nickname is the Tan Teflon Man.
Congratulations to Emmitt Smith who will be enshrined into the
NFL Hall of Fame on Sunday. He rushed for 6ove 10 miles and
scored 164 rushing touchdowns in his NFL career, mostly with the
Dallas Cowboys.
He was a great runningback at UF and Pensacola Escambia
High School.
The Glazer family owns two of the richest professional sports
franchises-Manchester United Soccer valued at $1.83 billion and
the Tampa Bay Bucs valued at $1.09 billion.
Manchester United last year generated $459 million in revenue
and $150 million in operating income. The Bucs generated $241
million in revenue and nearly $69 million in operating income,
reported Forbes Magazine. This does not include debt payments
and interest.
The Republican-controlled Florida Legislature on July 20 in a
special session called by Gov. Charlie Crist refused his request to
put on the Nov. 2 ballot a state constitutional amendment that
would ban near-shore oil drilling.
Sex is not going out of style. The New York Times reports 267
people are being born every minute and 108 people are dying, with
the world's population expected to top 7 billion in 2011. Developed
countries like the U.S. are seeing lower birthrates and longer life'
spans.
Big population growths are forecast for Asia and Africa.
Populations in Europe, Japan and South Korea are expected to
shrink.
The U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand are expected to
grow because of immigration and higher birthrates.
Walt Bogdanich of the New York Times wrote this week that
:over 350 Americans have been zapped with too much radiation in
CT brain perfusion scans. The states involved include California
and Alabama.
Sometimes medical treatment does more harm than good. In
most cases medical treatment is helpful.
The Republican battle for governor between attorney general
Bill McCollum and rich businessman Rick Scott is a good one.
McCollum, 66, has been a career politician, serving as U.S.
representative for many years. Scott, 57, was the CEO of
Columbia/HCA which paid a record $1.7 billion fine for Medicare
fraud while he was there.
Scott said he did not know about the Medicare fraud. He
resigned during the FBI investigation and received a $300 million
severance package. He was never charged with a crime.
S Scott now leads in a recent poll and has spent $30 million on
his campaign. I recommend the GOP elect McCollum for their
nominee for governor.
Several Florida residents have died this year from eastern
equine encephalitis, a disease carried by mosquitoes. Two of the
deaths were in Hillsborough County.
Mosquitoes can also spread dengue fever, which is less dead-
ly than EEE. There has been an outbreak of dengue fever cases in
Key West.

and Bubbles: The Untold Story."
Along for the ride was Michael Jackson's sister,
LaToya, who had not seen Bubbles since he was 6 years
old. The crew stayed for four hours, touring and filming
the sanctuary. During their stay, Jackson had the oppor-
tunity to have a moment alone with her old friend.
Bubbles seemed to remember Jackson, and came
and sat right next to her by the fence. Jackson was very
emotional during her private visit with Bubbles, saying
later to her manager, "When I looked into his eyes, I
saw the same baby Bubbles and it reminded me of my
brother."
Despite the tearful reunion between the two,
Jackson walked away with a new perspective on how
chimps in captivity should be raised.
"LaToya came up to me later on and said, 'We all
loved Bubbles, but I now know that it is not right to
have a chimp as a pet.' That is powerful, coming from a
Jackson. I don't want the Jacksons to seem bad for
keeping Bubbles as a pet. Times were different back
then, 25 years ago we didn't know what we know now,"
said Ragan.
In addition to spending time with Bubbles, Jackson
also had the opportunity to visit with f~e other apes. She
held the hose while Bubbles and his friends played in
the sprinkles, was given a homemade mask by Grub the
chimp, and had the chance to sit in on a therapy session
with Knuckles, who has cerebral palsy.
After the tour was over, Jackson went around and
shook everyone's hand, thanking them for taking good
care of Bubbles. The staff of the Center for Great Apes
was appreciative of Jackson's humble and thankful atti-
tude during her visit. One unique way she showed her
gratefulness has had the staff full of smiles, especially
Ragan.
During the tour Ragan complimented Jackson's
Oscar de la Renta high heels.
After hearing they share the same shoe size, she
could hardly keep them on her feet, pleading with
Ragan to take them as a gift. Ragan politely declined,
but that didn't stop Jackson from trying one last time.
As the car was driving away, Jackson rolled down the
window' and dangled the high heels out for Ragan to
take.
"I kept telling her that she is going to need her shoes
to walk around with, but she kept insisting that I take
them. Although the days of wearing, high heels are long
gone for me, it was sweet what she did. With her per-
mission, I am hoping to sell them in an auction to raise
money for Bubbles. I want to do what is best to help the
center," said Ragan.
The sanctuary will have yet another valuable item
to auction off in order to benefit the chimps. Fashion
designer Keith Holman, who worked side-by-side Bill
Whitten creating the iconic costumes for Michael
Jackson, has decided to make Bubbles his very own MJ
inspired outfit. Holman plans to take leftover material
,and sequins from the original costumes to make a jack-
et and glove for the chimp.
"We are appreciative and gracious for him wanting
to do this, but it would be better if the clothes were sold
in an auction to raise money for the sanctuary. Bubbles,
or.his friends, will tear the outfit to shreds," said Ragan.
In addition to the attention received from LaToya
Jackson and Holman, one other person has taken a spe-
cial interest in the life of Bubbles. Independent director
Thomas Balmes has appeared on the "Today Show" and
"Oprah" talking about his latest film, "Babies," which
documents the first year of a child's life. Balmes is now
considering doing a documentary on the life and behav-
ior of apes, highlighting the journey Bubbles has taken-
from a pet to a primate.
Although the constant media attention has kept the
Center for Great Apes busy this past year, Ragan
believes that getting correct information to the public is
extremely important. One current issue Ragan wants
known is the problem with palm oil distributions. In
other countries where palm oil is grown, farmers have
begun cutting down trees for palm oil plantations.
Orangutans lose not only their homes, but their food
source as well. When the orangutans try to search for
food on the plantations, the farmers kill them, often by
machete.
"These farmers are killing orangutans off like rats,
by the thousands. The babies have to be rescued and
taken to a sanctuary in order to survive. Every chimp
you see in captivity represents five to six others that
were killed in the wild trying to protect them.
Although it is hard to avoid using palm oil because
it is a popular ingredient, consumers have to force com-
panies to make better choices," said Ragan.
It is because of issues like this that Ragan has spent
her life providing apes with the best life possible.
Things such as vet care, healthy meals, heat in the win-
ter, and enrichment material are always provided for the
apes at the sanctuary. Providing a peaceful place to

relax is key to giving the apes a happy life.
"Many of the apes here have been in shows and cir-
cuses during their infant years. They have had to deal
with kids, cameras, screaming people, abuse, and mul-
tiple shows a day," said Ragan.
Although the staff provides the apes with a quiet
environment, the apes sometimes like to create some
ruckus themselves. When asked how the center pro-
vides the animals with a calm and peaceful home,
Ragan laughed and said, "Chimps are not calm. They
are very loud and playful. They go crazy over the spe-
cial pizza we make for them, or when they play in the
sprinklers. When they are excited or making up for a
fight, they rui around hugging each other."
The center will be receiving a small makeover dur-
ing the summer, as well as welcoming new apes. A total
of four new domes are being created in order to accom-
modate the space needed among the males, who are
growing up in both size and attitude. Two of the domes
will house the chimpanzees and also provide space for
the new rescues coming in.
Coming in the fall is a 44-year old chimp, who has
spent the majority of his life in a cage, and two chimps
in their 20s. The additional two domes are for the orang-
utans, which will leave plenty of room for the nine soli-
tary males at the sanctuary.
Despite the attention and additions to the Wauchula
center, Ragan believes that things will soon go back to
normal.
"This is momentary media attention, life goes on.
Hardee County has kept their feet on the ground during
this time and remain supportive, as they always are,"
concluded Ragan.

Getting an idea should be like sitting down on a pin; it should
make you jump up and do something.

by the district court effectively
prevents us from moving for-
ward with our mine plans."
The limited reserves left on
the Polk County side of the
mine cannot sustain the mine's
operation, he said. Mining
only the upland portions in
Hardee County is impractical in
many ways.
"Unless relief is granted by
.the appellate court, we will be
left with no choice but to indef-
initely shut down the mine until
the issue is resolved," Davis
said.
"Our chief concern is for our
employees, the employees of
other local businesses, their
families, and other stakeholders
who will be profoundly impact-
ed by the mine's shutdown."
Closing the mine could have
a substantial impact to the econ-
omy of Hardee County.
The county would have
received millions of dollars in
taxes on the equipment and land
during the life of the mine.
Also, a $42 million develop-
ment agreement reached in
2008 between the county and


Mosaic is in jeopardy with the
mine closing.
The money could have been
used to develop infrastructure
for the county and to create jobs
that would not leave such a void
in the long-term future once
phosphate reserves are depleted
and the mines are gone.
Bill Lambert, economic de-
velopment director for the
county, said seven years of
planning and permitting and
100,000 pages of documenta-
tion yielded a permit that satis-
'fied the Central Florida
Regional Planning Council, the
County Commission, the Flor-
ida Department of Environ-
mental Protection and the Corps
of Engineers.
"I believe something close to
the original Corps permit will
prevail, but much economic
regression and certainly some,
hardship will occur while it is
sorted out," Lambert said.
"Hardee County's economy and
individual employees are the
big loser proportionately, even
though the stock market losses
are 10 digits."

The new budget includes
three percent raises for employ-
ees, perhaps paid in a third-
quarter bonus rather than in the
paycheck, which would have to
include the usual deductions.
One alternative discussed at
length was applying the three
percent dollars to each employ-
ee's insurance costs. The insur-
ance committee recently met
with the Public Risk Manage-
ment representative in review-
ing options to the current 702
plan, which was increasing sig-
nificantly. It includes an 80/20
plan with $200 deductible
Instead, the committee chose
a 719 plan which is 75/25 and
considered the least detrimental
to employees for out-of-pocket
costs. It has a $500 deductible.
A Blue Cross/Blue Shield rep-
resentative was on hand yester-
day (Wednesday) to field ques-
tions from employees, who
were notified of the potential
plan change late last week.
The city has received over 97
percent of its 2010 tax revenue
of $672,860. Next year, it
expects to receive only
$612,532. In 2008-09, ad val-
orem or property taxes raised
$654,928. In 2007-08, when
millage was 5.02, property
taxes raised $593,532.
There is other revenue in the
$23,845,068 proposed 2010-11
budget, including gross receipt
and sales, communication, utili-
ty service and gasoline taxes.
Other revenue also include
licenses and permits, state and
federal grants, state-shared rev-
enues, charges for services, and
others.
The budget also includes ele-
ctric, sewer and water income
of $13,645,660, airport grants
of $484,773 and Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
revenue of $5,899,183, includ-
ing a possible $5.355 million
bond program.
The last one brought up a lot
of discussion, as CRA/Main
Street coordinator Jessica New-
man explained the thinking
behind the $5 million bond
issue for both short- and long-
term projects. ,
The recent CRA update plans
for a series of projects to
enhance the downtown and
U.S. 17 corridor. Some of these
could be completed much earli-
er than projected and increase
the business aspects and interest
in the community.
Economic development
would include smaller places
for incubator office and retail
businesses, enabling them to
get going at a lesser initial
investment. Each accomplish-
ment would be an incentive to
other downtown development,
Newman said.

The minimum pool depth
required for international
water polo matches is six

District

Treating

River
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District is treating
water hyacinth and water let-
tuce on the Peace River this
week.
Workers are treating portions
of the river from Fort Meade
south to Bowling Green.
They are applying the aquatic
herbicides Reward or Aqua Star
to scattered infestations, and are
posting warning signs in the
treatment areas noting treat-
ment dates and water use re-
strictions.
Treated river water should
not be used for watering live-
stock or irrigating lawns and
ornamental plants for one day
following treatment, or for
drinking for two days following
treatment. The treated water
should not be used for irrigation
of food crops for five days.
Water use restrictions apply
to river water only, not to tap or
well water. There are no restric-
tions on the use of the river for
swimming, boating or fishing.
Water hyacinth and water let-
tuce are troublesome, rapidly
growing aquatic plants from
other countries that were intro-
duced to Florida. If these inva-
sive plants are not controlled,
recreational activities, naviga-
tion, flood control and fish and
wildlife populations may be
negatively impacted.
The management of these
plants on the Peace River is a
cooperative effort between
SWFWMD and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission.

HHS Prepares For The


Arrival Of State Team


Earlier this summer, a group
of 10 Hardee Senior High
School staff members attended
a four-day conference in La-
Belle where they learned of the
expectations and procedures
that will be required of the
school when a state team ar-
rives at its doorstep in August.
The need for the state inter-
vention was realized last school
year when HHS landed on a tar-
get list of at-risk schools in the
state of Florida.
The at-risk list was created
based oh the schools' perform-
ances over a five-year period,
which covered the 2004-05
through the 2008-09 academic
years.
Although HHS received
some support from the state last
school year through a reading
coordinator who worked prima-
rily with reading and English
teachers, for the next three
years, the school will receive
support from a team of special-
ists who' serve the Region IV
area of Florida.
The Region IV State Team is
made up of specialists from var-
ious fields including reading,
math, science and careers. The
team also includes an interven-
tion specialist who will assist
the school with attendance, dis-
cipline and dropout prevention
initiatives.
Although the staff of Hardee
High School has been aware
that the state team would be put
in place for the upcoming
school year, there was little
understanding of exactly what


the team's presence would
mean for them and their day-to-
day to practices. After attending
the LaBelle conference, there is
a much clearer picture of the
expectations that will placed on
the staff and administration, and
the procedures that will be used
to monitor the school's progress
in improving student achieve-
ment.
Although the four days could
be described as both over-
whelming and exhausting, the
HHS team was highly encour-
aged by the support and direc-
tion that they received from
Region IV team members.
Science teacher Rob Beatty
said of his experience at the
conference, "Going into the
workshops, I was a bit nervous
about what the Region IV team
was going to expect of us. In
leaving, I realize that the team
is really about supporting our
efforts and helping us to
improve ourselves."
Susan Barton, who serves as
the. school's math and science
coach, agreed, saying, "Having
participated in various meetings
with members of the state team,
I found them to be professional
and very knowledgeable. I look
forward to working with them,
and feel confident that the staff
at HHS will appreciate their
suggestions."
Also in attendance at the
LaBelle conference were sever-
al schools that had experienced
state-team interventions during
the 2009-10 school year.
According to HHS principal


Dr. Michele Polk, every school
administrator who worked with
the Region IV team last year
expressed that it was a great
learning experience that result-
ed in positive change at their
schools.
Polk added, "There is no
question, our work next year is
going to require a united effort
on the part of the high school
staff, students, parents and
community-but we can do
this. We have to do this.
"Hardee County deserves a
high-performing high school,
and this will help us get there,"
she concluded.
In order to prepare for the
start of the coming school year,
the HHS team of 10 who
attended the LaBelle confer-
ence, along with the school's
leadership team, were working
during the month of July to
complete portions of a newly
required self-study along with
their yearly school improve-
ment plan.
Instructional staff will be
asked to complete online sur-
veys to assist with data collec-
tion and allow them an opportu-
nity for input into new initia-
tives that will be in place for the
beginning of the 2010-11
school year.
To assist the school with the
additional costs associated with
required initiatives, the district
is applying for a school im-
provement grant that could
potentially provide as much as
$500,000 to Hardee Senior
High School.

Mosquitoes Can Give

You More Than An Itch


Bastern Equine E -cephaHs
Virus isan anlpbavius that
occurs in a cycle between birds
and hlosquitoes in swampy
areas.
Human and animal cases are
relatively rare became the vec-
tor tends to remain in swamps
and prefers to feed on birds. But
the virus is transmitted to
humans through the bite of an
infected mosquito.
* When human cases do occur,
they are often severe.
Symptoms begin 3-10 days
after the 'bite of an infected
mosquito, and can result in one
of two types of illness: system
or encephaliti.
Systemic infection has an
abrupt onset and is character-
ized by chills, fever, malaise,
joint pain, and muscle pain.
Illness lasts one to two weeks,
and recovery is complete when
there is no central nervous sys-
tem involvement
Encephalitic illness is charac-
terized by fever, headache, irri-
tability, restlessness, drowsi-
ness, anorexia, vomiting, diar-
rhea, cyanosis, convulsions and
coma.
About one-third of those with
clinical encephalitis die from
the disease, usually within two
to 10 days after symptom onset.
Many of those who recover suf-


fer long-an neurloic issues,
ranging from minimal brain
dysfunction to severe inellectu-
al impairment, personality di.-
orders, seizures, paralysis and
cranial nerve dysfunction.
Many of these patients die with-
in a few years.
No human vaccine exists for
Eastern Equine Encephalitis,
nor is there any specific antivi-
ral treatment. Patients should be
evaluated by a health-care pro-
vider and appropriate testing
should be done. Reducing
exposure to mosquitoes is the
best defense against infection.
Emphasizing prevention
measures is essential to reduc-
ing the risk of transmission to
humans. Follow the "5 D's";
Dusk and Dawn-Avoid
being outdoors when mosqui-
toes are biting. For many
species, this is during the dusk
and dawn hours.
Dress--Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin
Deet-Apply a repellent
containing DEET, picaridin, oil
of lemon eucalyptus, or
IR3535.
Drainage-Check around
your home to rid the area of
standing water, where mosqui-
toes lay eggs.
Tips for repellent use:


Read label directions care-
fully before you apply it.
Chllden should not use some
products.
A concentration of 30 per-
cent DEET is recommended.
Apply repellent to exposed
skin or onto clothing, but not
under clothing
Make sure the repellent
you are using is age appropriate
when applying to children
Keep infants indoors or
drape mosquito netting over
carriers. Do not apply repellent
to infants' skin.
Do not apply repellent to
children's hands.
Tips for eliminating breeding


sites:
Clean eaves and gumr.
Remove old tis or drill
drain holes ford hoe sed in
playground.
Remove or turn over old
poes
Pick up drink containers
and cups
Check taps and equipment
that may collect water.
Store canoes and small
boats upside down.
Frequently replace water in
birdbaths and pet feeding dish-
es.
Change water in hanging
'plant trays.

Success seems to be
largely a matter of hanging
on after others have let go.

shots who keep shooting.

HHS Golfers Have Good Summer


DOMINGUEZ DRAWS CROWD


By lOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Over half of the Hardee High
boys golf team is sharpening
skills in the summer Sertoma
Golf tour.
Taylor Barlow and Justin
Bromley have participated in
the boys 17-18 group, while
,Daniel Miller, William Beattie,
Trenton Moon, Dalton Hewett
and Bryson White have been in
the 15-16 boys division.
Miller and Beattie have been
the most consistent. Over the
last four weeks, one or the other
has led their division.
On July 8, the Sertoma
played at The Bluffs, off U.S.
17 at Gardner, the home course
for the DeSoto Bulldogs during
the regular season. In the
matchups, that day, Barlow
came in at 84 to place sixth in


his 17-18 division. Miller won a
playoff against Colin Walkup to
top the boys 15-16 with an 85.
Beattie tied for third with 88,
with Moon, Hewett and White
following along.
The July 15 event was at
Placid Lakes. Beattie was the
local golfer with the best round,
winning the 15-16 division with
87, better than 17-18's Brom-
ley, who came home in 90 for
sixth place in that group. Al-
though Miller missed that date,
Moon and White tied in follow-
ing Beattie to the clubhouse.
The July 21-22 event was the
Bill Jarrett Ford Match Play at
River Greens in Avon Park.
Barlow advanced to the final
round before losing to Greg
Gentry on holes 6 and 4.
In the 15-16 group, Miller
placed third in defeating


Branden Fitch on holes 9 and 7.
Beattie placed seventh with a
win over teammate White on
holes 5 and 3. Moon lost his
fifth place matchup with O. C.
Smith on holes 6 and 4.
In the final July match, the
golfers went to the Sebring Golf
Course. Barlow carded an 82 to
place second in the older divi-
sion, while Beattie placed sec-
ond in the 15-16 group with an
87. Teammate Miller tied for
third place with 88 and was fol-
lowed by White, Hewett and
Moon respectively.
The golfers went to the
Harder Hall course today and
also play a weekend tournament
in Orlando. The season con-
cludes with the Aug. 20-21 Tour
Championships, where the
summer's trophies will be
awarded.

Transportation is the key!

It really doesn't matter whether
you're a mom with children,
on a school bus, a commuter -
going to work, an ambulance
driver, a fruit harvester or a


livestock producer going to -
market, you've got to have
good roads. ___ iL

If you live on a dirt road, which is
the case for many Hardee Countians you
understand the frustration of our road system. If


you ride around looking at our paved roads, you
see too many pot holes and worn surfaces.
We can fix this situation! As Commissioner
I will make it a priority to make sure we
have the safest, most efficient road program
possible! (Good Roads are the key to
economic development.)

MEAN THOUGHTS
Please, Lord, keep me from mean thoughts. Not just big
wicked considerations, but little lazy thoughts that wrap them-
selves around self and make unfavorable comparisons with kin and
neighbors.
Teach me the skill of letting go immediately when such
thoughts come knocking, and hurl them away so as to walk unen-
cumbered.
It is so easy to criticize, to feel superior of those who struggle
and fall. But you know, Lord, how often I've fallen myself and how
You have lifted me up again and again with great kindness. May I
do the same for others.
Send me people who love me enough to tell me the truth, who
remind me that I am son of a King and I must speak His words and
do His deeds, for He is fitting me for new assignments in the great
new kingdom that is coming.

Sebring, Lake Placid and Wauchula-on Sept. 8 will go to computerized physician/-
provider order entry (CPOE), meaning doctors and nurses will enter their orders elec-
ronically instead of using written instructions. This is being required in modern health-
care, and six percent of U.S. hospitals are now using CPOE. The new method is esti-
mated to reduce medication error by 82 to 88 percent. Healthcare issues in America
continue to be cost, access and quality/safety. Shown from left are Cook, Florida

Fish Busters
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


TEACH KIDS ABOUT OIL SPILL
Summer provides ample opportunity for children to develop a
love of nature. Every time they get outdoors and connect a little
more with nature, it helps them develop healthier, happier and
smarter lifestyles and an appreciation for conservation.
Whether they visit a fishing pond, clinib a tree, help in the gar-'
den, go swimming or tubing, or explore a park or wooded lot, it
gets them outside to participate in active pursuits.
When Richard Louv published "Last Child in the Woods-
Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder" in '2005, it
spurred a global movement led by the Children & Nature Network
Sto accomplish just that. In Florida, Get Outdoors Florida! is both
the. initiative and coalition, with the goal of helping parents and
families find fun ways to lead healthier more-natural lifestyles and
to better'appreciate our resources. Visit GetOutdoorsFlorida.org for
places'to go and tips on fun activities.
Ever since the oil-drilling platform Deepwater Horizon ex-
ploded in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, setting off one of the
largest ecological disasters in American history, Floridians have
been reconsidering how critical a conservation ethic is to our qual-
ity of life.
It is important that parents be able to communicate with their
children at an appropriate age level about catastrophes of all types
as well as the importance of nurturing nature.
The Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission continues to
work diligently with the Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection, county governments, water management districts and sev-
eral federal agencies to conduct wildlife assessments and to protect
Florida's wildlife populations throughout this crisis. This includes
taking water samples and testing for contaminants in sediments,
fish and shellfish, and evaluating critical habitat and shorebird and
sea turtle nesting areas.
Gov. Charlie Crist requested and received a determination
frpm the U.S. Department of Commerce that some of Florida's
vital fisheries have failed. This enables fishermen and affected
businesses to qualify for economic injury loans.
In spite of all this, Florida remains the Fishing Capital of the
World, with most of our saltwater fisheries and all of our freshwa-
ter fisheries still providing diverse, year-round, nature-based recre-
ation to Floridians and tourists.
Help keep it that way by taking a kid fishing, buying a license
and contributing to youth fishing/hunting programs when you
make your purchase. All of your license fees go to conservation,
and donations go specifically to youth fishing and hunting pro-
grams in Florida:
The FWC is working aggressively to protect and restore fish.
and wildlife species and their habitats and to reconnect children
with nature, since the ultimate solution to such ecological crises
will be in their hands.
Education' and opportunity are the key. When children or
adults get outdoors more frequently they achieve healthier, happi-
er and smarter lifestyles and understand how fragile and intercon-
nected our environment is.
Together we can keep Florida a beautiful place for children,
fish and wildlife to grow together as nature always intended.

automobile. He toured Hartford, Ct. in a Columbia Electra

Combination Therapy Slows 'ifie
Advancement of Alzheimer's Disease


WEATHER SUMMARY
Week ending August 1, 2010
Weather Summary: Widely scattered showers dropped from
traces, to over four inches of rain during the week of July 25
through August 1. Minimal rains have not eased drought conditions
in some Panhandle and northern Peninsula localities. Alachua.
recorded over two inches of precipitation with Tallahassee report-
ing over three inches. Most areas received traces to over an inch of
. rainfall. Areas reporting over four inches of rain included Avalon,
Hastings, and Ona. Major cities averaged temperatures th;:t we're
one degree below norma' to six degrees above normal. Daytime
highs were in the mid to upper 90s with the heat index raising tem-
peratures to over 100 degrees in several stations. Evening lows.
were in the 70s.
Field Crops: Field crops were suffering due. to extreme heat
conditions coupled with the lack of rainfall. Growers need sub-
stantial rains to elevate moisture supplies. Dry conditions may
reduce peanut yields in dry land fields. In Jackson County, dry con-
ditions and high temperatures was beginning to cause significant
stress on peanuts and cotton. Some peanut pegs were burning off
due to the heat. Some peanut fields were being treated for white
mold in the Panhandle. Growers continue to spray fungicides.
Peanut condition was rated 2 percent poor, 25 percent fair, 60 per-
cent good, and 13 percent excellent. Peanuts are 80 percent pegged
compared with 78 percent last'year and the five-year average of 90
percent pegged by this date. Corn harvesting was underway in
areas throughout Hamilton and Jackson counties. Corn in
Escambia County is in critical need of rains.
Vegetables: Vegetable producers were busy preparing land for
fall planting in the southern Peninsula areas. Okra and light sup-
plies of avocados were marketed last week.
Livestock and Pastures: Cattle and pasture were stressed by,
high temperatures. In the Panhandle and northern areas, the condi-
tion of the pasture was poor to excellent with most fair to good.
Pasture was hurt by drought and high temperatures stressed live-
stock. Much pasture was overgrazed. The cattle condition was poor
to excellent with most in good condition. In the central areas, the
pasture condition was poor to excellent with most in good condi-
tion. Many cattlemen were mowing pastures to remove over-
mature grass. The cattle condition ranged from poor to excellent
with. iost in good condition. Cattle weight gain was lower than
average due to'heat and the low' quality of over-mature forage. In
the southwestern area, the range was in poor to excellent condition
with most in good condition. Statewide, cattle were in poor to
excellent condition with most in good condition.
Citrus: Highs this week were in the mid to upper 90s, with
early morning lows in the low to mid 70s. Avalon received the most
precipitation with 4.48 inches. North Port received the least with
0.03 inches of precipitation recorded. Fourteen of the twenty-five
stations reported less than an inch of rain. Mild drought conditions
continued in Indian River County and surrounding counties were
dry as well. Growing conditions continued to be good across the
citrus 'region. Cultural practices included limited fertilizations,
hedging, irrigation, and the resetting of young trees. Some summer
sprays were applied as rainfall permitted. Growers continued using
both aerial and ground spraying for citrus psyllid control.

The first movie comic to have a pie thrown in his face was
Fatty Arbuckle. Mabel Normand did the tossing in the
1913 silent film "A Noise From the Deep."


A recent study finds that
combination therapy with the
medications Namenda and a
cholinesterase inhibitor seems
to slow the advancement of
.Alzheimer's disease. Published
in the Journal of Neurology,
Neurosurgery &'Psychiatry, and
funded by the National Institute
on Aging and the National
Institutes of Health, the study
shows that the benefits of the
two medications are most evi-
dent over the long term.
Patients in this first-of-its-
kind study who took the two.
medications were able to live
independently for a longer peri-
od, meaning the benefits of
these two medications are most
evident over the long term. "In
fact, patients were seven times
less likely to be placed in a
nursing home compared to
patients who received a
cholinesterase inhibitor alone,"
says Dr. Oscar Lopez, M.D.,
professor of neurology at the
University of Pittsburgh and
lead study author.
This is encouraging news for
patients, and also for care-
givers, who provide an average
of 21.9 hours of unpaid care per
week. Almost 11. million
SAmericans, primarily' family
members, take' on the role of
unpaid caregiver for a loved
one with Alzheimer's disease or
other dementia.
Alzheimer's disease is a pro-
gressive and fatal neurodegen-
erative disorder characterized
by problems with memory,
thinking and behavior that
eventually become' severe
enough to affect work, lifelong
hobbies and social life. Every
70 seconds, someone in the
U.S. develops the disease, and
by 2050, someone will develop
Alzheimer's disease every 33
seconds.
There are two categories of
Alzheimer's disease medica-
tions approved by the FDA. A


category called cholinesterase
inhibitors includes three drugs
(Aricept, Exelon and Raz-
adyne). Only one drug,' Nam-
enda, belongs to the other cate-
gory of medicines called
NMDA receptor antagonists.
Previous studies have demon-
strated that treating patients
with moderate to severe
Alzheimer's disease with com-
bination therapy of Namenda
and Aricept may yield' impor-
tant benefits, including im-
provements in a patient's behav-
ior and ability to perform daily
activities, as well as a slower
decline of memory and think-
ing.
"Our study showed that com-
bination therapy with Namenda
plus a cholinesterase inhibitor
helped Alzheimer's disease
patients to stay at home longer
compared to individuals who
never used medication, and to
those who were taking only
cholinesterase inhibitors," says
Dr. Lopez, "These benefits may
be why patients taking combi-
nation therapy were able to
delay entering a nursing home."
The new information from this
study builds on previous data
pointing to combination therapy
as the "new standard of care"
for moderate-to-severe Alzhei-
mer's disease patients.
Remember, if you suspect
your loved one may have Al-
zheimer's disease, it's important
to see a doctor for a proper eval-
uation and diagnosis. Timely
diagnosis allows care and treat-
ment to begin as soon as possi-
ble. Although there is no cure
for Alzheimer's disease, there
are effective treatments ap-
proved by the U.S. Food &
Drug Administration (FDA),
which can be used alone or in
combination, to slow the pro-
gression of disease symptoms.

Alzheimer's disease care, visit

Quota Hunt Permits

No Longer Mailed


This downtown shop is convenient for all, and offers an
expanded inventory and introduces what will become
new favorites. Keeping the country feel are (from left)
Tina Lambert and owner Tammy Farrer.
NEW LOCATION--Old Pine Candle & Gifts recently relo-
cated to a larger facility.
Originally opening during the summer of 2009, owner Tammy
Farrer has been pleased with the amount of business she has
received, allowing for the recent relocation and increase in inven-
tory.
"We outgrew our other location on Orange Street. The transi-
tion was very quick and smooth as the doors of opportunity
opened. We have been blessed to gain more retail space," com-
mented Farrer.
The new location is at 313 W. Main St. in downtown
Wauchula. Store hours will remain the same, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
weekdays and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
The larger building brings mnew merchandise, new jewelry,
home d6cor and a Christian book room. Remaining are the
Kameleon and candle lines that debuted at the original store.
Attending the Atlanta Market in July allowed Farrer to gain
inspiration and to preview new product lines. She took this oppor-
Stunity to order new merchandise in home d6cor and gift items.
"We are careful to always give our praise to the Lord. We
moved locations and grew, and it was because of His blessings. He
Shas been so good to us and we want to be able to continue to serve
the community. We are excited to see what God has in store for us
next," added Farrer.
NEW ADDITION-Sabrina Crawford has opened her own
business, gaining new clientele and broadening her horizons.
Graduating Hardee Senior High School in 1993, Crawford's
lifelong dream has been to be a beautician.
"I previously worked as a pre-kindergarten exceptional student
education tutor until my job was cut and I decided to go back to
school. I started in August of 2008 and graduated from Traviss
Career Center in Lakeland in June 2009," explained Crawford.
Previous work experience includes her employment at
Wauchula Barber Shop & Beauty Parlor before teaming up with

Masters Touch, finally accomplishing her lifelong dream.
Master's Touch, where she now can be found.
Services offered include men's and women's haircuts, hair
braiding, razor cuts, coloring and waxing, along with manicures

clientele.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
wants to make hunters aware
that beginning this year, quota
permits for general gun,
archery, muzzleloading gun,
family, youth, airboat and track
will not be mailed out to suc-
cessful applicants as they have
been in the past,
Instead, the FWC is allowing
hunters, who are awarded per-
mits in the random drawings, to
print the quota permits by going
to www.fl.wildlifelicense.com
and choosing "Limited Entry/-
Quota then Pickup/Pay for
Awarded Permit." For detailed
instructions on how to do this,
go to MyFWC.com/Hunting
and click "Limited Entry
Hunts," then "How to Print
Your Limited Entry Hunt
Permit Directly from the
Website."
Hunters not having access to
.the Internet or a printer can pick


up their awarded quota permits
at license agents or county tax
collectors' offices. But, be pre-
pared to give the clerk the four-
digit hunt number of the hunt
you were awarded. Hunt num-
bers are listed on the quota
worksheets.
To check drawing results and
permit availability, hunters may
again go to MyFWC.com/-
Hunting and click "Limited
Entry Hunts." Permits issued
during phase I or II can be
downloaded or picked up any
time before the hunt ends.
The exception is that mobili-
ty-impaired quota hunt permits
will continue to be mailed to
successful applicants. Also, the
legal game tags used in South
Florida during track and airboat
quota hunts, which are still
required, will continue to be
mailed to the awarded permit
holders.

A: I went to school for eight hours;
four in the morning and four in the
afternoon.

Q: What did your school serve for
lunch? For breakfast?
A: My school didn't serve lunch or

morning before school, and for lunch the
teachers gave us time off to go eat at

A: No, because I don't like the way
teens today live or your customs.

Q: If you were to give us young
people advice, what would it be?
A: Stay away from the bad habits of
the world because that is not the right
way to live your young lives.

A rancher said to the district
superintendent, "We want a
preacher."
"How big a man do you want?" he
asked.
"We don't care," said the
rancher. "But when he's on his
knees, we want him to reach
heaven."
Reaching God is the objective in
prayer, and you can through
Christ.
Prayer is an invitation from God.
You can't intrude upon Him. He
invites, "Call upon Me, and I will
answer thee." He's more ready to
answer than we are to ask.
Prayer is an invitation to God, to
let Him give strength forweakness,
wisdom for folly, guidance for
gloom and help in hazards.. *"*
Yes, prayer is heaven's tele-
phone. It's free to all, never busy
and always in order.

My name is Mark Luckenbach, and I'm just a regular

family, which keeps me very busy.
I got into this race because we recently came within one
vote of having a hazardous waste dump placed in our
county. The health of our land, water, and families is not
for sale at any price.
Hardee County should not become the dumping
ground for other Florida counties. I will NEVER vote
for such a thing on my watch.

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
There two strawberry cup
manufacturing plants in the
state and one is just west of
Wauchula on the road to the
convict camp. The local plant,
operated by Kirby D. Revell,


is making 20,000 cups a day
with seven machines working.
The cups are made from bay
wood block in a raw form and
run through the veneering
machine.
Eleven rural schools and their
teachers are listed. Popash, Pine
Dale, Lemon Grove, Lake
Branch, Torrey, College Hill,
Center Hill, Tura, Castalia and
Oak Grove will open next
Monday. Seven other schools


The night was cool black velvet,
The earth lay quiet and still.
Old Blue, his voice like satin,
was bayin' on the hill.

The old man sat quietly dreaming,
Asleep, or so it seemed.
The dying embers flickered,
and warmed him as he dreamed.

He dreamed of soft green springtime,
of Sunday School in May.
Of swimming holes in summer,
of autumn's new mown hay.

He had been a farmer,
a tiller of the sod.
A gentle man of simple faith,
a humble child of God.

He dreamed of his fair Jenny,
of all their happy years.
A worn and aging hand then reached
and brushed away a tear.

Was not a tear of sorrow,
a sad nor bitter thing,
To all things there's a season,
he'd be with Jenny come next spring.

will delay their start until Sept.
2. It is thought they will run
about eight months, although
state funding has been delayed
and school districts are advised
to borrow money until it is
available.

State Treasurer W.V. Knott is
taking out compensation insur-
ance on all his employees under
the Workmen's Compensation
Act of 1935. Also the state
insurance commissioner, Knotl
is the first state officer to do so,
and recommends that other
state and county offices do the
same.

50 YEARS AGO
More than nine inches of rain
fell in many parts of the county
from last Wednesday through
Sunday evening, sending Peace
,River and the county's many
creeks over their banks, disrupt-
ing traffic on most of the grad-
ed roads and a few of the paved
roads, and giving utility people
a fit. The southwestern part of
the county was particularly hard
hit as Horse and Bushy creeks
went over their banks. Peace
River covered at least two
bridges.

The Tamiami Trailways
express office in Wauchula may
close next week. It is the only
express company serving
Wauchula on a regular intra-
state basis. If the office is
closed here, the nearest agent
would be in Bartow.

In a move to speed up the
four-laning of U.S. 17, the city
of Wauchula has taken over
the job of processing right-of-
way instruments for the section
of th6 highway through town.
Superintendent George Burris
said 109 deeds must be
processed within a month.

Another tough schedule,
including seven Southwestern
Conference foes, has been lined
up for the Hardee High
Wildcats, said Hardee football
coach Jack Strucher. Season
tickets at $5 each include all
five varsity, three junior varsity
and two junior high games.
Opponents this season are Fort
Meade, Plant City, Winter
Haven, Lake Wales, Avon Park,
Haines City, Pasco County,
Bartow, Auburndale and
Arcadia.

short pants for 77 cents, short
sets for $2.44 and swimsuits
$1.44 to $2.88.


25 YEARS AGO
The city of Bowling Green
plans to hold the line on the ad
valorem tax rate and utility fees
this coming year. It will repeat
the 4.920 mills of last year. In
its general fund, the city is plan-
ning to spend $426,567 for the
coming year, compared to the
current budget of $400,810. Ad
valorem taxes are expected to
be $52,000 this year.

The Hardee County Education
Association presented its first
salary proposal for the 1985-86
school year as collective bar-
gaining began last week. The
proposal calls for a 21.5 percent
increase across the board, with
beginning teacher salaries
jumping from the current
$14,615 to $17,757, an increase
of $3,142. The proposed base
scale would top out at $26,742
for a teacher with 16 years'
experience. That is a $4,732
increase from the $22,010 of
today.

Zolfo Springs tentatively set
the millage at 3.312 to bring in
$27,186 in ad valorem tax. The
millage this year was 2.589,
which brought in $19,000 in ad
valorem tax. The largest rev-
enue in Zolfo's budget is
$43,434 from the cigarette tax.
Next year's proposed budget is
$326,300.

Realtors offer a slew of bar-
gains this week. One is a 4BR,.
2BA concrete block home in
Riverview at $45,000. There is
a 3BR, 2BA CB home with cen-
tral H/AC and enclosed garage
for $39,000 and a 2 BR 1BA
home on shaded lot reduced
from $32,000 to $29,000.

10 YEARS AGO
Two seats are up for grabs on
the Bowling Green City
Commission during qualifying
next week. The city-wide elec-
tion is Sept. 28. Three-year
terms are coming to an end for
Randy Mink and Joe Jones,
who is also vice-mayor. Jones is
a candidate for "County
Commission District I.

The county has been asked to
take 40,000 tons of screened
soil at the county landfill. The
sandy dirt and dark topsoil from
an Auburndale construction site
has passed Toxic Characteristic
Leachate Procedures testing.
The company has removed 95
percent of the plastic sheeting
the soil contained. If approved
by the state Department of
Environmental Protection, it
could be used as initial or inter-
mediate landfill cover.

Spot ads offered a variety of
services from used cars to
mowing, to grove spraying, tree
trimming and several help
wanted ads.

When grackles fly, they
fold their tail feathers
upward and use the tail to
steer.


MEET STEVEN!
Highlands Hammock State Park is pleased to introduce&our
new park manager to the community.
Steven Dale joins us from his previous management position
at Oleta River State Park in North Miami. Steven is not new to the
Florida Park Service or management, serving as a park manager for
nine years with a total service time of 24 years.
Steven is also not new to the area. He
and his family have owned property in -
Lake Placid for about seven years. This was .
his family's weekend getaway from the
busy Miami area. "I had been considering
coming to Highlands Hammock for about
six years or so, but had to wait for Peter to
retire," says Steven. "We have a lot of fam- .. ..
ily in the Lake Placid area, so really this is *--
home."
Originally raised in New Jersey,
Steven attended college at Rutgers University and has a degree in
ornamental horticulture. In 1982 he headed to Florida and the
Orlando area to work on a landscaping career. A series of interest-
ing events, including a broken leg and full-leg cast, interrupted this
process but also introduced him to a job at Ravine Gardens State
Park.
Steven worked at Ravine Gardens for about four years. Hip
horticulture knowledge combined with a lot of inmate labor helped
restore these Works Progress Administration-era gardens. It also
helped Steven get to know the Florida Park Service and directed his
future career path.
His next step was to apply for an assistant park manager posi-
tion at John U. Lloyd Beach State Park in Dania Beach near Fort
Lauderdale. It was also the place where he met his wife. "My wife
was the secretary at John U. Lloyd and eventually we got togeth-
er," says Steven. "It was a very busy park." It was also excellent
training grounds for his next position in the Florida Park Service.
Promoting to the park manager position at Oleta River State
Park was a natural progression for a man who was used to the
heavy workload and demands that accompany running a beach
park. "Visitation at Oleta River runs about 350,000 visitors a year,"
explains Steven. For comparison, Highlands Hammock State Park
totals out at about 210,000 visitors annually.
Steven and his family are looking forward to a little slower
pace of life, but with two teenagers and a young son, it won't like-
ly slow down much.
Steven is currently settling in here at the park and is planning
to be here for quite some time. Please join us in officially welcom-
ing Steven to Highlands Hammock State Park.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Sherman said he would never
complain about the cold again!
The only thing bad about the
coltl is when it freezes our
plants, trees, fruit, etc. He says
he can put on more clothes and
stay warm! We will wait until
this winter. If memory serves
me right we both said when it
got to be warm weather, we sure
would not complain, but you
and I know it is hot!
There are a lot of folks in our
community celebrating birth-
days in the month of August.
Faye DAvis started the month
off with her big day on Aug. 1;
Avie Hogenauer celebrated on
the 3rd. The Allison twins
turned 1 year old on the 3rd.
They spent the weekend with
grandparents, Rita and Byron
Allison. Kaylee Hogenauer
turned another year older on the
4th. Jean Sadler will celebrate
on the 8th. Hopefully everyone
looks forward to our heavenly
home, but are happy to still be
here and getting older!
I saw Herman and Ruth
Moye the other day in Wal-
Mart. Where else do you see
someone if not at church or.one
of the other grocery stores?
Herman asked us to pray for his
daughter, Julie. She is only 45
and they have called in Hos-
pice. She has cancer.
Buddy Patten has been
moved to Winter Haven. Sam
and Aden Rawls were going to
see him last Sunday and they
should have the address of the
facility where he is located.
Clint Vermilye was scheduled
for back surgery this past
Monday. Leo Blink goes to the
doctor on Friday and John Deer
is having some health prob-
lems. He should know some-
thing later this week. Tammy
Hellein had back surgery.
Billy Porter received the bad
news of cancer and will go to
the hospital in Orlando shortly.
Pat Albritton is scheduled for
surgery on Friday in Lakeland
and Charlton Sadler is sched-
uled for knee surgery next
Monday. Kenny Farabee is in
the Winter Haven Hospital.
Now, that is a lot of sick so
everybody needs to get busy
praying for their recovery.


On a happier note, Betty
Walker's medication seems to
be much better and she is feel-
ing lots better. She still can't
jump any high fences but is bet-
ter!
We were requested to pray
for the Mosaic workers who
will suffer from the recent law-
suit and be out of work. Most
people you see now are thank-
ful they have a job.
Avie and Kaylee Hogenauer
joined friends Theresa Ros-
enberg, Freida Crawford and
others for a weekend at the
beach. Usually there is a breeze
there even though it is hot.
We have finally gotten some-
thing that is eliminating the
coons and possums from eating
our grapes. Sherman was set-
ting the traps nightly and I was
talking about it at church and
Trish Richey said put an electric
fence around them. Amazing,
but that had never occurred to
us.
We went to the store, read the
literature and now have an elec-
tric fence around the grapes! It
does not kill them, only gives
them a tingle. Our grape vines
cover our back walk. Parts of
the year, it is a nice green cov-
ering but parts it is just a stick
canopy!
Don't forget the Back to
School Bash at Fort Green
Baptist this Saturday. Regis-
tration begins at 9:30, dinner at
12 and ends between 3 and 4.
All the students attending will
receive nice prizes, so come on
out!
Sandy Hash invited me and
another friend for lunch Mon-
day. Sandy is a wonderful
friend and a super cook. I met
her when we both worked at
Gardinier Big River and then
again we both worked at the
prison.
Mama always said if you did-
n't grow up with them, you
made your friends at church or
at work. Since I grew up in Val-
dosta, Ga., I have made fiends
either at work or church! Mama
was right! If she had not made
her final journey at the age of
82 she would be turning 95 on
the 12th of August.
Please pray for each other
and our country.

THE LIFE OF REILLY
What do you do when life gives you a real setback, the kind
that leaves you discouraged and depressed?
If you're Kevin Reilly, you fight back. And help not only your-
self, but a lot of other people as well.
In Reilly's case, it first took a shove or two. And then a hefty
amount of determination. But in the end it all paid off, big time, and ..
the life he lives now-the life of Reilly, of course-is one that's
spent in the finest Christopher tradition.
It all began in Wilmington, Del., where Reilly was so talented
as a football star that he went on to a stellar college career at
Villanova and then moved up to the National Football League,
where he had played with both the Philadelphia Eagles and the
New England Patriots.
What happened next was literally tragic.
As Mike Lang wrote in a recent issue of "The Dialog," the
newspaper of the Wilmington Diocese, Reilly developed cancer
around scar tissue in his left shoulder. It was bad enough that the
diagnosis ended his season and his football career.
But what happened next was even worse: the shoulder, his arm
and five ribs were amputated, leaving Reilly-just in his late 20s-
with only a question mark for his future.
A series of challenging phone calls helped to turn things
around. One came from Rocky Bleier, the former Pittsburgh
Steelers running back who had also starred at Notre Dame and was
badly wounded in Vietnam. Another came from Wayne Allen, the
football coach at Reilly's alma mater, Salesianum High School,
who took a "tough-love" approach in urging his ex-pupil to make
something of his life.
Angry at first, Reilly ultimately took up the challenge. He
began a career at Xerox, and in his free time decided to involve
himself in the community.
All of that happened some 30 years ago, and since then there's
"hardly a civic organization in the Wilmington area that hasn't ben-
efited from Reilly's time and talent.
His motivational talks alone are the stuff of legend, and how
Reilly loves to give them. "I don't need a script," he told Lang. "I
don't need notes, I don't even need a microphone." But there's
much more to the Reilly story than public speaking.
Both before and after his retirement from Xerox, Reilly has
made himself available to service groups in the area. There's the
huge volleyball tournament he runs for the Easter Seal foundation,
which has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help special-
needs children. He's made his presence felt at the Special
Olympics, a favorite endeavor ever since his playing days. He's
chairman of the annual golf tournament held by former Eagle
coach Dick Vermeil, which benefits the Boy Scouts of America.
And he visits'wounded veterans at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center in Washington, with special attention to amputees.
Catholic Charities of Wilmington honored Kevin Reilly last
spring with a special award, one given to those "who have demon-
strated a deep commitment to promoting and restoring the well-
being of people." If anything, that sounds exactly like Reilly's job
description. And, one imagines, it would be all but impossible to
come up with a more deserving honoree.

Prison Is Not The

Way To Do Life


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
What fools they are who
manufacture idols for their
gods. Their hopes remain
unanswered. ... No wonder
those who worship them are
so ashamed. Who but a fool
would make his own god -
an idol that can help him not
one whit.
Isaiah 44:9a,c and 10 (TLB)

FRIDAY
Much will be expected from
the one who has been given
much, and the more a man
is trusted, the more people
will expect of him.
Luke 12:48b (Phillips)

SATURDAY
Don't talk about your neigh-
bors behind their backs -
no slander or gossip,
please. Don't say to anyone,
"I'll get back at you for what
you did to me. I'll make you
pay for what you did."
Proverbs 24:28-29 (The Message)

SUNDAY
Do not be deceived. Bad
company ruins good morals.
Come to your right mind,
and sin no more.
I Corinthians 15:33-34a (RSV)

MONDAY
But Samuel answered,
"What pleases,God more:
burnt offerings and sacri-
fices or obedience to His
voice? It is better to obey
than to sacrifice. It is better
to listen to God than to offer
the fat of sheep.
Disobedience is as bad as
the sin of sorcery. Pride is as
bad as the sin of worshiping
idols.
ISamuel 15:22-23a (NCV)

TUESDAY
Don't have anything to do
with foolish and stupid argu-
ments, because you know
they produce quarrels.
I Timothy 2:23 (NIV)

WEDNESDAY
But when I am afraid, I put
my trust in You. O God, I
praise Your word. I trust in
God, so why should I be
afraid? What can mere mor-
tals do to me?

Dear Editor:
God bless you abundantly,
my name is Arturo Trevino
Castillo.
First of all I would like to say
thanks be to God for what He
has done and for what he is still
doing in my life.
In 2005 I was incarcerated in
the Hardee County Jail for a
serious charge and later
sentenced in 2006 to a 20-year
sentence: 10 years in prison and
10 years probation.
At the time I was very afraid
and had no knowledge at all of
the law. The only people that
kept me going were God and
my wife. She had always sup-
ported me with spiritual counsel
when I went through depression
at the time. She would always
try to see me on visiting days.
The last couple of visits were
hard moments because I was
awaiting my departure to Flor-
ida State Prison.
I've always kept in my heart
what my wife had mentioned to
me when I told her I wanted a
divorce because I knew it
would happen later down the
line. As she made me look into
her eyes and told me that she
would always be there for me
no matter what happens and she
would always be my wife. It
was very hard for me to accept
that.
I remember her telling me
that I had to forget about her
and my family in order to do
my time right and safely. I did-
n't agree to that in some
aspects, because a person going
away needs family, support,
especially one's wife.
But she said a very special
comment to me-that it was
what God wanted, because I
had a desire to meet prisoners
and help them.
My love for that mission was
great, although, she laughed
when I mentioned "Yeah! But
not like this. I'm going to prison
myself!"
She brought me to remember
I was told and prophesied that I
would be going where no other
man can go, live among those
who are hard to reach.
My wife was right all along.
We get so accustomed to our
lifestyle it makes it-hard for us
to leave. It hurts! But; it:was a
consequence that I had to pay.
I matriculated in school,
achieved my high school diplo-
ma within two years, then
promptly became a I.T.A. for
the institution (Inmate Teaching
Assistant) helping men learn to
read. Who would have ever
thought I would ever become a
reading teacher, especially in
prison. All this happened here
in Hardee Correctional Insti-
tution.
I praise God for this institu-
tion. This institution has had
every solution to ny prob-
lems-especially dealing with
one's self and learning to over-
come the obstacles of life to a
life of success.
I'm now learning carpentry
and love it. On Saturday morn-

ing I go to spiritually fill my
soul with a program called
Evangelistic Explosion. It pre-
pares me to be a better servant
of God, father, husband, broth-
er, son and friend in Christ
Jesus, Amen.
I've always been in the music
ministry. It's my passion, al-
though it's not easy at times in
prison. Because again I say, it's
very hard being away from my
own family. I love my wife and
family-God knows it.
The reason why I write this
letter is to warn men, women
and teenagers to really think
twice about what they do in life.
Prison is not the way to do life.
Men in here lose their fami-
lies and find themselves being
alone. But prison will also make
you come to a point in life that
you no longer want to be in
here.
I want to change into a better
man and better person. But the
only way that can be done is by
surrendering your life to Christ.
I've seen it happen several
times where God give men
a second chance at life in
society.
There's a special scripture in
the Bible I love very much-
John 14:6. Jesus said to him, "I
am the way, and the truth, and
the life; no one comes to the
Father but through Me."
That is so true in my life. I
couldn't have done it without
Him. I now have about 2 1/2
years left to serve and only
through Him was I able to con-
quer this sacrifice and tribula-
tions. This is my first, but
believe me it will be my last as
well. I will never forget where
God brought me out of-not
only the fact of finishing my
sentence but the sate of mind I

I thank God for my deliver-
ance within myself, and I hope
and pray to be of help to those
who have given up on God.
Listen, a lot of times we say
that God has forgotten us or left
us. On the contrary, we are the
one who forget Him or leave
Him. He is and always will lbe
there for you, no matter the cir-
cumstances.
Remember to keep your
focus on God. I always tell peo-
ple-what do you have to lose?
Give God a try and you will
see for yourself and you won't
regret it.
And with this letter I would
like for my wife and family to
forgive me, so that I can receive
peace in my heart. I know I've
made numerous mistakes, but
from the bottom of my humble
heart I ask for your forgiveness
and I ask and pray to God for
one more chance with my wife
to restore our relationship and
family. I have faith in God that.
all things will be better and the
way He wants it.
I also want to give God
thanks for the knowledge He
has give me in law. Although
the state says it's a 10-year sen-
tence, it's really a 20-year
sentence. Because a 10-sen-
tence is 5 in-5 out, a 20-year
sentence is 10 in-10 out. But.
that's the least of my worries;
God has my life in control and.
in His hands.
And with this I close this
message. Thanks again and God
bless each and every one of you

Wildlife Forecast
By Pat Behnke
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


1 GAME DOES NOT MAKE A WORLD SERIES
Our wildlife suffered through a cold winter in Florida. We also
endured a steamy June. What does it all mean?
The temperatures were below normal during the winter and
above normal in the spring. It's not rocket science, it's not static,
and it is impossible to draw conclusions about climate change with
just a few weeks' worth of data.
Yet that's what many of us do when it comes to climate
change. Either side could "prove" the other side wrong based on
the weather that occurred over the past six months. Both would be
wrong, because that's not how scientifically meaningful predic-
,tions are made.
For example the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brew-
ers 15-3 recently. This stellar win has little to do with the Pirates'
overall season. One game does not a World Series winner make,
just as one cold January does not a trend make.
Dr. Thomas Eason, deputy director of the Division of Habitat
and Species Conservation with the Florida Fish & Wildlife Con-
servation Commission, goes to the water to make his point about
trends.
"Think of the ebb and flow of high tide at the beach. Even
though the tide overall is rising, each individual wave may be
smaller or larger. At any point in time, you could be standing in
knee-deep or ankle-deep water, but after a few hours, you would be
in chest-deep water," he said.
"Climate change is about 30-year-plus trends that will have
smaller trends within them," Eason concluded.
Climate is the average of weather conditions, and seasonal
scales are examined to determine how one season compares to the
other seasons in the past. Timescales used for making predictions
are based on models over decades and centuries.
"The long-term data solidly point to a warming climate,
whether looking at centuries or decades," Eason said. "However,
what happened in the past winter or what happens this summer
only tells us what took place in that season. It's the addition of
those data to the overall trend that will matter to the scientists
attempting to model climate change, and it will matter to the fish
and wildlife that will have to respond to those changing condi-
tions."
The studies point to humans playing a direct role in the
changes, most notably since the beginning of the Industrial Age.
Other natural factors also are a consideration. El Niiio, with its
warming trends, affects weather around the globe, as does La Nifia,
bringing in colder winds during the winter. In the Atlantic, natural
changes in wind and sea temperatures create a change in hurricane
frequency.
"A changing climate has existed since pre-Columbian times,
yet fish and wildlife science has treated climate as something that
is static," Eason said. "However, we are now forced to confront this
fallacy and move into a dynamic-state mindset when thinking
about managing fish and wildlife."
Since 1750, carbon dioxide has increased by 31 percent, which
is higher than seen in 420,000 years. All of this added together
means our climate is changing-some of it naturally, some of it
manmade.
Dr. Jean Brennan, with the Defenders of Wildlife and 2007
Nobel Peace Prize laureate as a member of the Intergovernmental
Panel on Climate Change, spoke at the FWC's 2008 climate change
summit and stressed Florida's vulnerability to climate change. She
advised that wildlife will not be able to adapt as quickly as the cli-
mate changes, and will do one of three things: shift range, adapt or
face extinction.
By looking at the overall trends in climate that have occurred
during the past 50 years in Florida and modeling potential future
changes, we can plan flexible strategies to assist wildlife as habitat
ranges shift, and we can help them adapt.
But we cannot sit by and idly discuss the coldest winter as a
way to debunk climate change; nor can we attest to global warm-
ing because of a hotter than usual June and July.
Instead, we can change a habit or two that might lessen out
impact upon the earth.
If it saves an animal from extinction, then who cares about one
little baseball game? We will have won the whole World Series.

sion's Pat Behnke at pat.behnke@myfwc.com.

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes
keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
Every morning, over 50 spotter planes and helicopters search for oil off the coast,
heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared photography.
Once oil is found, they radio down to the 6,000 ships and boats of all sizes that are
supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect.the oil. These are thousands of
local shrimping and fishing boats organized into task forces and strike teams, plus
specialized skimmers mobilized from as far as the Netherlands.

We have recovered more than 27 million gallons of oil-water mixture from the Gulf.
Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional gallons of oil from the
water. We've deployed more than 8 million feet of boom to protect beaches and
sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In coordination
with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend operations temporarily but
have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.2 billion responding to the spill and on the
cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in the Gulf as long
as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect but we will do everything
we can to make this right.


For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
