Fire Destroys



Wauchula Home


by SAVANNAH FAIRCLOTH
Herald-Advocate Intern
A Wauchula home was con-
sidered a total loss in a fire this
Past weekend, resulting in trips
to the emergency room for two
local Fire-Rescue personnel.
The call for the home of
Mattie Moore on U.S. 17
Northbound, owned by Roy
Brown, came in at 11:29 a.m.
Saturday. Within four minutes,
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
arrived on site at 735 S. Fifth
Ave.
A total of six Hardee County
Fire-Rescue units were on
scene, including three engines,
two tankers, the chief, an ambu-
lance, and 10 firefighters. Fort
Meade sent one engine with


-four firefighters and Polk
County had one EMS unit on
scene, which acted as the med-
ical unit for the incident.
The fire at the east side of the
building was under control by
12:07 p.m., but the house was
considered a total loss.
The total time on scene was
4-1/2 hours, using 17,000 gal-
lons of water to put the fire out.
Moore, who was not home
during the blaze, is getting
placement through the Red
Cross and her dogs are being
housed at the kennels by
Wauchula Animal Control Ofc.
Terry Davis.
The cause of the fire is under
criminal investigation.

County Campaigns Are Costly


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Just who has the biggest war
chest in the local battle to win
public office?
It is difficult to say for cer-
tain; given the campaign treas-
ury accounting available at the
time of this report, as they only
cover the period of time up to
July 16. Heavy campaigning
typically just begins around that
date, and candidates may have
received, and spent, many more
dollars than are shown on early
forms.
That said, forms on file at the
Hardee County Supervisor of
Elections Office show Thomas
Trevino, a candidate for School
Board District 5, with the heav-
iest war chest. It holds $4,000.
Accordingly, he is also the
biggest spender, already sinking
$2,789 into his campaign.
Following well behind but
still next in available money is
Sue Birge at $2,600. Birge is a
candidate for County Commis-
sion District 2. But she is not
the next biggest spender. That
distinction goes to Rocky
Kitchens, also a School Board
District 5 hopeful, who has
spent $2,044.

Who has the lightest cam-
paign chest? Both Nick Tim-
merman, of the County Com-
mission District 2 race, and
Glenn Bergens, of the School
Board's District 5 battle, had
but $300 in their accounts as of
July 16. Timmerman, however,
is alone as the smallest spender,
putting just $161 into his cam-
paign.
Forms show who is serving
as each candidate's campaign
treasurer, how much money
each candidate has available for
the battle, where that money has
come from, and how much has
been spent.
Again, the accounting
shown here only cover the peri-
od to mid-July.



Get Rid Of

Hazards

For Free
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Don't dump that old TV,
stereo, cell phone, I-pod or
computer along the Hardee
County roadside.
SWait until Saturday morning,
from 8 a.m. until noon, and put
it with other stuff for the quar-
terly Hazardous Waste Disposal
Day at the Hardee County
Landfill, 685 Airport Road,
Wauchula. Go east on Main
Street about two miles, turn
north on Airport Road and fol-
low until the paved road ends,
turning left to the entrance to
the landfill.
Along with those electronics,
gather up other household haz-
ardous waste and head out to
the landfill. Each household can
bring up to 60 pound of it free.
If you don't have that much,
stop by an elderly neighbor's
home and see what else you can
bring for them.
Bringing outdated electronics
to the landfill is essential be-
cause dropping them alongside
the road may cause them to
break and leak lead and mercu-
ry to contaminate someone's
water supply.
There are a lot of things that
are considered hazardous waste

Resignation

Giroux Told To Finish

Negotiations Or Be Fired


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Finish resignation negotia-
tions or be terminated.
That was the ultimatum given
Wauchula City Manager Rick
Giroux on Monday night, when
the Wauchula City Commission
scheduled an emergency meet-
ing, over audience objections,
for today (Thursday) at 5:30
-p.m.
City attorney Cliff Ables
opened the discussion by saying
that he, Giroux and city labor
attorney Reynolds Allen had
been in collaboration and sug-
gesting the Thursday night spe-
cial meeting as the last step.
Commissioner Jerry Conerly
said he had been following the
progress of the negotiations and
was requesting the attorney pre-
pare a resolution terminating


Giroux's employment if the
negotiation package is not com-
pleted for Thursday's meeting.
Commissioner Dan Graham
responded, "On what grounds.
I've not seen anything official
of what he has done wrong."
Conlerly said "If the agree-
ment's in place, we may not
have to terminate. If not, we'll
discuss why then." The motion
f6r a termination resolution
barely passed at 4-3. Conerly,
Clarence Bolin, Connie Spieth
and Val Patarini voted for it.
Commissioners Delois John-
son, David Royal and Graham
voted no.
Bolin then asked since the
local paper comes out on the'
street on Wednesday afternoon,
would that meet the Sunshine
Law requirement of adequate

DOWNTOWN DELIGHT

PHOTO BY NANCY DAVIS
Traffic stopped, yes, stopped, this past weekend as flocks of curlews filled downtown Wauchula. Literally hundreds
of the birds were seen on the Hardee County Courthouse lawn and, here, near the Courthouse Annex along Oak
Street. Perhaps they were seeking justice for all?

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Ezayi Youyoute, last year's star quarterback at Hardee High
School, is making a name for himself at Georgia Southern
University in Statesboro. He was featured in Savannah Morning
News sports story Tuesday.
Youyoute is 5-11 and weighs 173 pounds. The article was e-
mailed to us by former Wauchula resident Ben Carlton. Carlton and
his wife Sissie retired to the area 2-1/2 years ago. They have visit-
ed Youyoute on campus and are impressed with his transition from
high school to college.
Youyoute is competing with another true freshman, Jerick
Mckinnon of Marietta for second team quarterback. McKinnon is
considered a better passer at this point, wrote Donald Heath.
The starting QB is Georgia Tech transfer Jaybo Shaw. The sea-
son begins Sept. 4 against Savannah State.
Youyoute has been impressive in running the Eagles triple.
option offense and his ability to avoid tackles and leave defenders
behind with his speed.
The top two quarterbacks from spring practice have been
moved to other positions.
"I'am not really worried about the depth chart. I think I am
making Jerick Mckinnon better and, he'll get. me better, too. I'm
just trying to get my teammates better. Mentally we have to get bet-
ter. Head coach Jeff Monken is the head-man andif-he says we're
not there, we're not there. We have to get to his level, where he sets
his standards.".
Ezayi has a HHS highlight film on YouTube. His parents Virgil
and Cederina Youyoute were born in Haiti but came to Florida
where the baby QB was born, wrote Heath. The family has rela-
tives in Haiti who have not been heard from since the Jan. 12 earth-
quake near Port-au-Prince.
Youyoute last season won the HHS L. Dale Carlton Award for
dedication and leadership.
Ben Carlton wrote he is the first HHS graduate to go to
Georgia Southern on a full football scholarship.

School begins in Hardee County on Monday, Aug. 23.

On Nov. 16 Tina Owens will mark 59 years as a Winn-Dixie
employee. She works at the Wauchula store.
.She wanted to share a quote from Dwight Eisenhower, U.S.
president and Allied commander of the Normandy Invasion in
World War II:
"I like to believe that people in the long run are going to do
more to promote peace than our governments. Indeed, I think that
people want peace so much that one of these days governments had
better get out of the way and let them have it." '
I wonder what he would think of our wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan.

The Wauchula City Council and city manager Rick Giroux are
trying to agree on a severance package.
In March 2005 Giroux asked for a 10-year contract and
received it from the council. His salary is $85,000.

If an elderly but distinguished scientist says that something is
possible, he is almost certainly right, but if he says that it is
impossible, he is very probably wrong.
-Arthur C. Clarke

I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much
jollieir than the people who have to wait for them.

FIRE
Continued From 1A
Four Hardee County Fire-
Rescue personnel were injured
while battling the blaze. Two
were sent to the hospital. Lt.
Bob Devereux and Firefighter/-
Paramedic David Cole suffered
heat exhaustion during the
event and were taken to the
emergency room. However,
both have recovered and will
return to work on their next
shift.
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
Chief Mike Choate said events
such as this could occur less if
his department were properly
staffed. "Our firefighters are
forced to work in suppression
efforts without a chance of
rehab," he said. "We do not
have enough staff to fight a fire
of this magnitude, nor the abili-
ty to rotate personnel through
rehab.
"However, I would never
consider asking for more per-
sonnel under these economic
'times," he added.

notice. Several voices from the
audience immediately ques-
tiqned it as'they do not get the
paper until Thursday after-
noon's mail or later. "Why ram-
rod it? Wait a week," they said.
Ables said posting it in city
hall was adequate. Commis-
sion candidate and local busi-
nesswoman Patty Detwiler
noted, 'If you want to look bad,
O.K. The public will not be
happy you are ramrodding it."
Conerly replied, "It's been a
month and Mr. Giroux has not
responded."
Detwiler said, "It may be the
letter of the law, but it looks
bad."
Giroux said he said he had
the separation agreement to
Allen and Ables a few days
after he announced his intent to
resign. at. the July 12 meeting.
"It took them two weeks to get
a response to me, and then they
wanted me to reply within three
days. When it came back again,
I picked it up by going into the
office on Saturday and they
wanted it back today. There is a
meeting at 3 p.m. tomorrow that
I'm supposed to have my final
answer.
"Most of the delay is not on
my end. I should have liked to
have time to respond in good
faith for me and my family.
Meanwhile, I had the annual
report, electricity negotiations,
the annual budget and several
other urgent things to attend to.
I didn't have anyone to help me
on it, but they (the attorneys)
had staffs to assist them," said
Giroux.
Commission Chairman/-
Mayor Royal announced that
there was adequate notice and it
"needed to be completed so
everyone can move in the direc-
tion they need to."
Detwiler and Dawn Atkin-
son-Jones both objected to the
short notice as they had other
commitments on Thursday
night and really wanted to
attend. "It's not that long a
delay until next Monday; con-
sider more than just your-
selves," said Detwiler, causing
Conerly to respond, "Are we
supposed to poll the public if
it's convenient. People get their
paper on Wednesday."

When Royal' repeated that the
attorney said it was adequate
notice, Atkinson-Jones com-
mented, "For the record, it a
matter of integrity and commit-
ment. I understand, but for the
public, it is not enough notice."
That began a round-the-table
response from commissioners.
Patarini led it it off. "It's kinda
funny you bring up integrity.
I'm disheartened by what I see
tonight. Some friends have
become mortal enemies, over
what....
Several in the audience said,
"Yes, tell us what." Patarini
chose to respond to the voice of
Bob Belflower. "I have issues
I'll take up with you later." He
went on, "This is the depth of
politics, factions making com-
ments about Mr. Giroux, the
Chief (Chief of Police William
Beattie), Commissioner Con-
erly and his daughter (Main
Street/CRA director Jessica
Newman), all of them inappro-
priate. This is not the Wauchula
I know. It's not as easy sitting
on this side of the table. I have
a lot of respect for the people on
this board (the commission).
Some have been through this
two or three tiines. It's not that
easy to make decisions. Why
slam anybody if you don't have
to. There's no reason to be that
way. I '11 get off my soapbox
now," concluded Patarini.
Spieth was next. She noted
she had served on the board for
24 years and never had this kind
of problem." It's humiliating.
I've had competition before,
but never anyone challenge my
honesty and integrity. There's
not a person out there that is
more honest than this group
here."


COURTESY PHOTO


Graham commented. "This
board needs to be open and
honest. It should never have
gotten to this point. No one has
discussed why we want him
(Giroux) out of here. I see some
of the public here. You'll never
pick a day to suit everyone. It's
not adequate, but people have
little faith in the commission. If
the agreement or termination is
not mutually acceptable, 'it
won't go through without being
questioned," he said.
Bolin declined comment and
Johnson said only, 'This is my
last meeting, except Thursday.
It's been interesting and I wish
you all luck."
Conerly concluded the com-
mission comments. "Like Val
(Patarini) I may not have anoth-
er meeting after this is over. I
ask you to'look at my motiva-
tion since I was first elected in
1986. There been a lot of good
times, and a lot of problems, but
I've.never seen a more honest
group than the one now that has
been ~tder personal attack.
S"In response to Mr. Graham's
question, I'm not wanting to
damage anyone's reputation.
But by Mr. Giroux taking steps
to resign, he recognizes that it is
not working. I don't want to say
anything to damage his reputa-
tion or cost him another job. It
only has to come out if we're
forced to terminate him. People
are putting out a lot of bad
things. I will continue to serve
with integrity and honesty in
the best interest of the public."
Giroux responded sharply, I
don't' appreciate your insinua-
tion that my reputation has to be
protected. I've done nothing
illegal or wrong."
Royal said it wasn't the time
or place to get into this discus-
sion, and closed that portion of
the meeting, after which about
half of the audience left.


Despair

Sometimes I get a feeling
Of such desperate haste,
And how I need to hurry
So no time I'll waste.

I know I'm growing older
As each day flies swiftly by.
But that's not what worries me,
And it does no good to sigh.

There's things I want to do
To make folks happier here
But my daily tasks hold me
From helping others near,

Then there are so many things
I yearn to do for me.
Like reading books or writing poems
But think no time, you see.

a place at the landfill for them

Households can each dispose
of up to 60 pounds of hazardous
waste free. Staff from E.Q of
Florida and the landfill staff
will be on hand to help you
unload.
Businesses that generate less
than 220 pounds of hazardous
waste per months are allowed to
bring their waste to the haz-
ardous collection site for proper
disposal too, but they will have
to pay current contract prices.
Businesses which generate
more than 220 pounds but less
than 2,200 pounds of hazardous
waste per month are not al-
lowed to bring their waste for
disposal on Saturday, but can
call for pickup at their place of
business, again at current con-
tract prices.
For more information, call
the landfill at 773-5089.

As a resident of Hardee
County for the past 47 years
and a proud phosphator for 33
of those, I can't let the state-
ments made by Dennis Mader
in the July 29 edition of The
Herald-Advocate go unan-
swered.
He needs to hear from Hardee
residents who oppose his posi-
tion and the actions his organi-
zation is taking that are hurting
jobs, families, and businesses in
qur community. I can point out
residents on every road and
street that I know of that are
connected- to the phosphate
industry.
Although I do work for
Mosaic, this is not written on
behalf of Mosaic, and it is not
about the federal lawsuit aga-
inst the Army Cops of engi-
neers. I wrote this on behalf of
all of us phosphators, associ-
ates, supporters, and the many
who unknowingly benefit from
the economic influx from out
largest major industry.
It is and always has been my
opinion that Mr. Mader has a
personal agenda. His resort in
Lily is just south of Goose Pond
Road, north of which is Mosaic
property. I believe that he, as
many have done (and under-
standably so), has taken a "not
in my backyard" approach to
mining.
I have a collection of his edi-
torials that are degrading and
false against mining as well as
articles where he personally
involved outside environmental
groups to put power behind his
pen.
It is apparent that holding
mining to higher standards is
not his goal, but he aims to put
a complete stop to it.
I find it appalling that one
would use agencies and groups
formed for the protection of the
general public to stall a busi-
ness to the point of shutdown
for one's own gain. Have you
looked at all of the alterantives,
Mr. Mader?
I encourage anyone to turn
west onto the County Line
Road in Bowling Green and fol-
low its end on Pool Rd., make a
left and come back into Bowl-


ing Green on Main Street. Vir-
tually every bit of this journey
on both sides of the road is
reclaimed phosphate land, three
fourths of which is in Hardee
County, all of it in the Peace
River watershed.
There are rolling hills, natural
sumps, upland pastures, foresta-
tion, orange groves and some
farming, all coexisting along
Payne and Little Payne creeks.
Take a good look at the pasture,
farmland and groves. They are
healthy. I'd trade my three acres
for some of that in a heartbeat.
The statement that nothing
has been done in the Peace
River watershed to reclaim old
lands is misleading. Granted,
there is a good deal of reclaim-
ing left to do.
What Mader doesn't know or
won't tell is that thousands of
acres of beautiful land, parks,
subdivisions and more that you
see every day from Lakeland
south, around Bartow and Fort
Meade are minded-out phos-
phate land and were reclaimed
to excellent standards, back in
the 50's and 60's by earlier
companies such as Swift,
Estech, Mobil, etc.
We all should remind Mr.
Mader that the farmers around
Bowling Green recognize the
need for phosphate fertilizers
and most are pro-mining.
You cannot grow enough cat-
tle to produce the amount of
manure needed to fertilize crops
on a large scale. You would then
need to fertilize the grass or
grain to feed the cattle, as once
you stop the manure from recy-
cling in the pasture, the soil
becomes depleted.
The "chemicals" in fertilizers
are the primary elements that
plants require for healthy
growth, just as is the phospho-
rous content of everyone's
bones, including Mr. Mader's.
I'm sure that Mr. Mader's phos-
phorus content is about the
same as mine. Without it, we
would probably not be able to
walk upright.
I suggest that if there are
.problems associated with the
misuse of fertilizers, that the
solution also lies there. We
should educate and regulate


oursleves to use fertilizer and
all products responsibly.
By the way, you can over fer-
tilize with manure, too, result-
ing in high phosphorus and
nitrogen levels that produce the
same algae. That is why there
are regulations concerning run-
off from dairy and hog farms.
I love tractors. And I know
and adore many people who
make their living farming.
Without them, most of us would
perish.
Can I assume, that since Mr.
Mader considers that these
wonderful people of Hardee
County are normal, that he is
implying that the thousands of
Hardee County residents mak-
ing their livings working for the
mining companies, running
heavy equipment for several
earth-moving companies, plant-
ers, landscapers, surveyors,
suppliers, retailers, health care
providers, teachers, etc. are not
normal?
He does not make economic
sense. I don't see many tractors
with 15 or 20 seats on them.
Once all of these jobs that
support the mine and its
employees are eliminated, and
our families have left the coun-
ty in search for employment,
how does Mr. Mader propose
we keep up our tax base? Will
he personally share his wealth
and pave a few roads? For those
who stay and remain unem-
ployed, will there be a place at
his table for them?
Yes, mining South Fort
Meade will make a temporary
land use change for that area. It
is not detrimental and it will
recover. Our economy under
Mader's plan will not.
Show us your teal hand, Mr.
Mader, not the one that you
want us to believe.

Youth Track Club Excels


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Three big meets this summer
have been good experience for
the small but dedicated group of
athletes in the Mark Anthony
Track Club, named for the late
MarlkAnthony Lunsford.
In its third season, the local
youth track club has seen steady
improvement in their times
since they began practice in
January under the watchful eye
of coach James Carpenter.
During the summer, they have
garnered an amazing number of
trophies.
It began at the Bay Area
Youth Track & Field (BAYTF)
on Memorial Day weekend,
where 11 local youth joined
over 2,000 athletes from 40
teams all over the west coast.
The Mark Anthony Club placed
27th.
Five girls participated. The
youngest was Marley Ureste, 7,
who was in her first-ever meet.
She ran the 100-yard dash in
20.63 and the 200 in 40.07.
There were three girls in the
bantam division, age 9. Miracle
Thompson ran the 100 in 16.64,
the 200 in 33.62 and hit 7 feet in
the long jump. Lilai Borjas ran
the 200 in 36.14, the 400 in
fourth place, and did 8 feet in
the long jump. Lianna Albrit-
ton, -in her first meet, ran the
200 in 44.01 and the 400 in
1:58.09. She hit 6 feet in the
long jump.
The oldest girl was 12-year-


old Johneisha Rowe, in the
midget division, who ran the
100 in 15.86, the 200 in 33.29
and hit the I1-foot mark in the
long jump.
There were seven Hardee
boys at the huge meet. The old-
est were Adariuis Council and
Brandon Beatty, both 14, in the
youth division. Beatty, an expe-
rienced distance runner, did the
800 in 2.:21.27 and the 1,500-
meter in 4:49.05. New at it,
Council ran the 100 in 15.23,
the 200 in 32.86 and took the
gold in the long jump. Coach
Carpenter did not get the dis-
tance on this event.
There were a pair of 12-year-
olds, Angel Conejo and Johnny
Luna, in the midget division.
Conejo ran the 100 in 17.86 and
reached 14 feet in the discus.
Luna ran the 100 in 13.97 and
the 200 in 31.27.
The two 7-year-olds in the
primary division, Ariel Whiters
and Jabari Knighten. In his first
time out, Whiters ran the 100 in
17.21 and the 200 in 38.95.
Knighten did the 100 in 16.60,
the 200 in 34.36 and hit 10'3"
in the long jump.
The youngest boy was
Jaylin Knighten in the 5-6 pee-
wee division. There were no
times kept for the littlest ones,
but Knight did well in the 50-
yard dash, and 200 run, said
Carpenter.
The pace picked up for the
Florida State Sunshine Games
in Gainesville on June 13, in


which five local youth partici-
pated. Beatty, the oldest, took
the gold medal in both his
events, running the 800-meter
in 2:33.05 and the 1,500-meter
in 5:22.0. Conejo took the gold
in the 100-meter in 18.61, and a
pair of silver medals, with
42'7" in the discus and 18'7" in
the shot put. Whiters brought
home a pair of silver medals in
his division, in the 100 dash at
16.79 and long jump at 10'. He
also ran the 200-meter in 37.14.
The two 9-year-old girls
showed improvement in this
meet. Thompson took gold in.
the long jump at 10'3", and sil-
ver in the 100-dash at 15.71 and
200-meter at 33.05. Albritton
showed significant improve-
ment in her second meet, with
44.75 in the 200, 1:48.07 in the
400 and a bronze in the long
jump at 8'8".
The final event almost didn't
happen. The Southern Track &
Field Fest was supposed to be at
Frostproof on July 24, but was
changed to Melbourne of July

My green thumb came only
as a result of the mistakes I
made while learning to see
things from the plant's
point of view.
-H. Fred Ale
If dandelions were hard to
grow, they would be most
welcome on any lawn.
-Andrew Mason


31, .causing a lot to drop out
because of the change in plans.
The four girls that went all
brought home medals. Albritton
was in the 400 and 200 and the
long jump. Borjas was in the
200, 400 and long jump.
Savannah Hunt, 12, and Jessica
Hunt, 16, were in the 400, 800
and long jump. Results are
online at the Global Track and
Field site.


Carpenter was pleased with
the eight-month effort, which
began in Janaury. In April, they
went to the Hershey's event in
Bartow just to see how they
were making progress. The
BAYTF was a huge meet, again
just for the experience. But the
youth brought home 12 medals
from the Sunshine State Games,
impressive because only Beatty
and Thomspon were veterans.


Carpenter would like to be
able to host a youth meet. He
says it is recreative for him to
spend time in the activity with
these positive, energetic young-
sters. He would like to get the
corporate sponsorship to have a
meet here. He has appreciated
.the support of parents Charlene
Albritton and Lin'da Choate,
who took pictures at some of
the meets.


I understand that cards are circulating' in public
places in Wauchula listing my name that bears on
the upcoming city election. My name appeared
without my knowledge or permission and the
opinions expressed are NOT mine.

I Would Appreciate Your Vote On

Wauchula Lions Club Serves

Lunch At Kids Camp July 31


By JULIE WATSON
For The Herald-Advocate
Several members of the
Wauchula Lions Club spent
Saturday, July 31, in Lake
Wales at the Florida Lions
Caip serving some of the 75
staff members a lunch that con-
sisted of chicken cooked by
Paul Samuels and Rick Knight.
Baked beans, potato salad,
coleslaw, and fruit salad were
prepared by other club mem-
bers. Club President Talmage
Albritton brought homemade
'ice cream that helped cool the
day off a little.
The majority of the Florida


Lions Camp staff came from
somewhere outside of the U.S.,
including places like England,
Ireland, Wales, Jamaica and
Australia. For them this is a
lifetime experience because
they do not have camps of this
kind in their countries.
The Florida Lion Camp was
established in 1974 as a way for
children with a variety of visu-
al, physical as well as develop-
mental challenges to be able to
enjoy the outdoors.
The camp offers a wide array
of activities such as swimming,
fishing, singing, camping, hik-
ing, arts and crafts.


The staff gave Lion members
a tour of the camp to include the
cabins that the campers stay in.
Each cabin is sponsored by a
different Lions Club through
the state and has its own theme.
You can learn more about the
Florida Lions Club by checking
out their website at lion-
campfl.org. They are always in
need of volunteers and dona-
tions.
The next service project for
the Wauchula Lions Club will
be with Dr. Mark Sevigny doing
eye screening August 20 at the
next Friday Night Live at
Heritage Park in Wauchula.


These workers helped prepare and serve meals at Lions Camp.

Likewise, the tongue is; a

1UA The Herald-Advocate, August 12, 2010


Nature photos are of reclaimed phosphate land


Dear Citizens of Central Florida:

There are few constants in today's complex world, but this remains true: America's farmers feed us all while keeping our nation's economy moving
forward. It is The Mosaic Company's privilege, and our business, to provide these farmers with the fertilizer products they need to keep America
growing. In fact, 75 percent of the phosphate fertilizer used by American farmers comes from right here in Central Floridd, making us a vital link in
America's food chain as well as of strategic importance to other critical sectors of the economy including manufacturing, shipping, trucking and rail.
So, we take the responsibility of extracting the phosphate farmers need very seriously.

Yet a month ago, the Sierra Club and two local environmental organizations filed a lawsuit in a Jacksonville federal court against the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers, challenging their permit for the Hardee County Extension of our South Fort Meade mine. Unfortunately, the district court granted the
plaintiffs' request for a preliminary injunction and ordered the permit back to the Corps for further analysis, effectively halting mining on the Hardee
site indefinitely.


Why this letter?
While we will vigorously appeal the district court's decision and believe
the permit will eventually be reinstated, we Are communicating with our
neighbor communities for two reasons:

First, we want to express our deep regret that, absent some relief from
the court, the injunction will force us to idle this mine which is located
in both Polk and Hardee Counties and lay off 221 valued employees.
They-and many other jobs, families and businesses in the region-will
be the unfortunate victims of environmental organizations pursuing an
anti-mining agenda without regard for the human and economic costs.
Although representatives of the environmental groups have argued
that we can mine the upland areas of the property without disturbing
any wetlands, they frankly don't know what it takes to run a mining
operation. The equipment is massive and can't just hopscotch through
an obstacle course.

Second, we want to assure you that Mosaic has been, and always will
be, committed to a very high standard of environmental stewardship.
Despite this court's unfortunate ruling, the track record of environmental
and wetland protections required under our permits is exceptional.
In fact, in our last four permit proceedings four different judges all
concluded that our proposed mining will not adversely affect the
region's water quality and quantity.

Our Dedication to Environmental Protection
The South Fort Meade-Hardee permit contains the most stringent
environmental protections of any phosphate mining permit in the
history of Florida. The Corps issued it only after an exhaustive, science
and fact-based process that included input or permits from 14 different
local, state and federal agencies over a seven-year period. Highlights
of the environmental protection include:

More than 3,000 acres of high-quality wetlands, Peace River
floodplains and major tributaries will not be mined, with the
majority of those acres placed under permanent conservation

All reclamation and wildlife management will meet or exceed
strict standards set by regulators

Streams will be reclaimed using state-of-the-art scientific
modeling methods, including those that have been significantly
altered by previous non-mining activities

Existing water resources will be used and approximately
95 percent will be recycled

In short, Mosaic is going the extra mile to ensure natural resources are
protected and to set an unprecedented standard for phosphate mining
in Florida.


The Economic Impact on Central Florida Citizens
We are extremely disappointed that the district court's ruling places so
little value on the significant economic harm this injunction will inflict.


For every Mosaic job lost due to the Sierra Club's action, economic
studies show that there are an additional 6.5 jobs which support the
industry. Based on that ratio, more than 1,400 indirect jobs will also
be lost. In this uncertain economy, we sincerely regret this financial
burden on so many central Florida families.

Further, last year, the mine purchased more than $131 million in non-
labor related goods and services.

The court's ruling also may lead to significant economic harm to Hardee
County, which is designated by the state of Florida as a Rural Area of
Critical Economic Concern. An agreement with Mosaic would provide
$42 million over 10 years for county infrastructure improvements and
other economic development initiatives, However, it is contingent on
the company's ability to mine the Hardee County Extension. Increased
property and severance tax revenues from the mining operation also
will not be realized until resolution of the lawsuit, effectively postponing
needed budgetary relief that would be felt by county schools and
government.

More globally, this single mine represents over one-third of Mosaic's
phosphate rock production and 18 percent of the United States' total
production. Its shutdown will negatively affect farmers.

These unfortunate economic impacts are harsh realities of the hostile
environment mining opponents have created in Florida and across
the U.S.

Our Commitment to this Region Continues
While this case works its way through the courts, we will reduce our
production and mine reserves which have separate permits. Most
important, we will continue working to support America's farmers who
feed us, keep our economy moving forward, and protect the region's
environmental assets that are vitally important to all of us who call
Florida our home.

Sincerely,



Gary N. "Bo" Davis

Shiver, Lozano Fight Friday Night


By. JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both are coming off victories.
Both look for another win on
Friday night.
Jenna "Cowgirl" Shiver and
Daniel "El Alacran" Lozano
will be in bouts at the A La
Carte Pavilion, 4500 Dana
Shores Drive in Tampa. The


All-Star Boxing and Fight

Shiver, a fan favorite, has a

Davis is the vice president of
Florida Fertilizer, which was
founded in Wauchula in 1959.
Keith appeared on Studio 10
with Mary Hartney, president
and executive director of the

The purpose of the segment
was to promote the safe and
responsible use of fertilizer and
agrichemicals, and to talk about
the best practices of the fertiliz-

Davis talked about how com-
panies like Florida Fertilizer are
able to customize fertilizer
based upon soil analysis and
crop requirements, and also
how the application of fertilizer
is now customized. Depending
upon the size of the tree, plant
or crop, modern technology
now allows farmers to control
the level of fertilizer that is
used.
They also talked about the
size of Florida's fertilizer and

ing the great number of jobs the
industry provides, and the
financial impact on the Port of

though she lives and trains in
Tampa. Her bout on Friday is
the main event, an eight-round
title fight for the junior feather-
weight regional title.
Lozano, 20, who is early in
his pro career, hopes to extend
his win streak to 5-0 against
Francisco Rosadio. It will be a
four-rounder, as he moves up in
the area boxing ranks. He will
be in his first six-rounder in a
Sept. 11 fight in Fort Myers,
when he will temporarily move
up to 116 while his opponent
comes down to that weight.
For now, Lozano is expand-
ing on his 10-year amateur
career as five-time national
amateur champion, including
silver medals in the U.S.
National Championships and
National Golden Gloves, a gold
medal in the Florida Golden
Gloves and a win over Roberto
Ceron in the 2008 U.S.
Olympic trials, just before he
turned pro.
The Bowling Green boxer
has a hard fight 23 in Atlanta,
fighting in the 112-pound divi-
sion against an outstanding
opponent, Erickson Martell
ranked third in Puerto Rico. His
overall pro record was 3-1 with"
3 KOs. In the first round, he hit
Lozano with a punch which
buckled is knees, but he was
able to throw a punch which
caused the opponent to back up
and gave Lozano the opening.
With 10 seconds left in the first
round, Lozano caught his oppo-
nent with a left hook followed
by a right uppercut. The boxer
was able to stand up but was
wobbly and the referee stopped
to fight.
"It was my toughest fight yet.
I hope it will move me up and
into more competitive fights,"
said Lozano, who has been win-
ning in the first round for his
past few fights.
That fight moved Lozano to 4
-0-0 with 3 KOS, an impressive
start to his career and being
termed "one of the fastest rising
prospects in the Southern box-
ing circuits."

Barlow, Beattie Golfing Swell


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Upcoming Hardee golf team
senior Taylor Barlow and soph-
omore William Beattie are real-
ly getting prepared for the 2010
season, which starts Aug. 30.
The duo have been leaders in
recent Sertoma youth golf tour
play.
Barlow had unusual success
in the July 21-22 Bill Jarrett
Ford Match Play at River
Greens in Avon Park. Each
round is nine holes. In the quar-
terfinal round, Barlow was
matched against former Ser-
toma player and American
Junior Golf Association tourna-
ment winner Rocky Khara, a
Sebring youth who has ad-
vanced successfully. Barlow
had the best this day, winning
by one stroke over Khara.
'Barlow went on to a semi-
final win 3-2 over Sebring sen-
ior Blake Liles. In the finals,
however, Barlow ran head-on


with Greg Gentry on who won
holes 6 and 4for a two-stroke
victory.
Beattie, who won on July 15,
placed second on July 29 and
third on 8, took another win last
Thursday in the next-to-the-last
event of the season at Harder
Hall. He finished the 18-hole
event in 82, four strokes up on
his nearest opponent in the 15-
16 age division. High school
teammates Dalton Hewett,
Trenton Moon and Bryson
White followed him home.
Another teammate, Daniel
Miller; who usually challenges
Beattie for the leadership, was
not able to make this event.
In the older division, senior
Justin Bromley upset Barlow.
They finished behind Gentry
and Liles in the 17-18 division.
Bromley came in at 85 and
Barlow at an unusual 87.
The final Sertoma event is the
Tour championship on Aug. 20-
21.

But Gentler
If your inability to remove
difficult stains from the wash
has put a blot on your laundry
reputation, you may want to
consider a different kind of
washing machine.
From grass to mud to wine,
you can't always depend on de-
tergents or stain removers to
power out hard-to-reach stains.
Your washing machine may not
be efficient enough.
Today's high-efficiency (HE)
washing machines offer more
cleaning power, use about 70
percent less water and are actu-
ally gentler on fabrics.
Traditional washers use the
friction of an agitator to remove
soil. HE machines require low
levels of water so clothes do not
soak in gallons of water and
diluted detergent, but rather are
washed in a small amount of
water, making the cleaning
power of the detergent more
concentrated. The clothes are
moved through the concentrat-
ed solution and the solution is
pulled through the fabrics to
dislodge soil and stains.
The efficient new washers are
available in top-loading and
front- loading styles. Front-
loading machines alternate the
wash motion of the clothes back
and forth in a repetitive motion,
tumbling clothes clockwise and


On Clothing
counterclockwise for a more
efficient and gentle cleaning
cycle.
Top-load and front-load HE
washers are equipped with a
wash plate at the bottom of the
tub using low water with high
concentrations. A look inside a
top-load HE washer can be sur-
prising. There's no agitator in
the tub. Instead, the tub looks
much like the front-load washer
tipped upright.
For the most powerful clean-
ing, HE laundry detergents
should be used with these ma-
chines. These detergents are
highly concentrated, keep suds
levels low, have enhanced
cleaning agents that help keep
dyes from being released from
garments, and suspend the soils
to keep them from redepositing
on the wash load.
According to the Whirlpool
Institute of Fabric Science, it's a
smart idea to read the directions
on your detergent for proper
dosage. Too much detergent can
lead to extra suds that inhibit
proper cleaning by holding on
to soils and redepositing them
on clothing.
For more information on
stain removal and clothing care,
visit www.instituteoffabric-
science.org.


Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success dr put its failures
behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's
the way baseball is.

WEATHER SUMMARY
Week ending August 8, 2010
Hot, Humid, and Hit and Miss Showers
Weather Summary: For the week of August 2 through
August 8, high temperatures ranged from mid 90s to low 100s.
Nighttime lows were in the 70s. Average temperatures for the week
were one to four degrees above normal. Typical summer showers
dropped rainfall in excess of five inches for some locations while
leaving other areas with only trace amounts. FAWN (Florida
Automated Weather Network) stations that recorded the greatest
rainfall amounts during the week included Lake, Hardee, Sarasota,
and llernando counties, reporting 5.13, 4.63, 3.32, and 3.19 inch-
es. respectively. Most other stations reported between one quarter
to three inches of precipitation. Overall soil moisture conditions
improved slightly, but areas that missed the showers dried quickly
from excessive heat and farmers ran irrigation to maintain soil
moisture.
Field Crops: Field crops improved in areas that received rain-
fall. but niost areas were in serious need of a soaking rain. Rain at
this stage of crop progress is critical for developing cotton bolls
and nut growth. In non-irrigated fields and locations that missed
beneficial rains, crops suffered due to extreme heat and low soil
moisture. Peanut condition was rated 11 percent poor, 9 percent
fair, 61 percent good, and 19 percent excellent. Peanuts were 92
percent pegged compared with 84 percent last year, and the five-
year average of 93 percent. Some early-planted peanuts were dug
in Levy County. Corn harvest was underway in many areas. Some
growers waited for the dry-down before combining. Soybean
growers reported significant deer damage. Cotton was stressed in
areas of low soil moisture. White mold was problematic in areas
that received several showers and producers treated fields to con-
trol the mold. Sugarcane was in excellent condition in most areas
and rapid development occurred under near ideal growing condi-
tions.
Vegetables: Vegetable producers were busy preparing land
and laying plastic mulch for fall planting. Okra and light supplies
of avocados were marketed last week.
Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition decreased
slightly due to drought and heat stress. In the Panhandle and north-
ern areas, the condition of the pasture was poor to excellent with
most fair to good. The condition of the pasture grass was down in
volume and quality. The cattle condition was fair to excellent with
most in good condition. However, some cattle deaths were report-
ed from heat stress. In the central areas, pasture condition was poor
to excellent. Pasture improved at some locations following scat-
tered rainfall. The cattle condition was poor to excellent with most
in good condition. In the southwestern areas, the range was in poor
to excellent condition with most in good condition. Statewide, cat-
tle 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 70s. Okahumpka received the most pre-
cipitation with 5.13 inches. Palmdale received the least with 0.21
inches of precipitation recorded. Mild drought conditions contin-
ued in Indian River County and began to affect the surrounding
counties 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 greater roadrunner, a member of the cuckoo family, can
run at speeds of up to 15 miles per hour.
Human beings are perhaps never more frightening than when
they are convinced beyond doubt that they are right.

KAREN COLLINS, MS, RD, CDN
AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR .
CANCER RESEARCH
Q: How can bread and pasta
labeled "whole grain" contain
enriched (refined) flour? I
thought I'd been eating prod-
ucts that were truly whole
grain.
A: The U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) set the
legal definition for whole-grain
products as those in which at
least 51 percent of the grain
ingredients are whole grain. So
if you check the list of ingredi-
ents, whole wheat or another
whole grain may be listed first,
but other refined grains may
follow. The label may say
"100% whole grain," which
means it contains no refined
grains. If you see the yellow
"Whole Grain Council" stamp,
check whether it says "100%
whole grain," otherwise it also
contains some refined grains.
Not every whole grain product
uses those stamps, however, so
the other way to know how
much of a product is actually
whole grain is to look past the
first ingredient to see whether
other grains are listed. Fiber
content on the Nutrition Facts
label can give some hint, since a
whole grain usually supplies at
least two grams of fiber per
serving; but sometimes refined
grains contain added bran,
wheat germ or soy protein,
which adds fiber but not all the
nutritional value of whole
grains. Choosing more whole
grains will help you meet the
Dietary Guidelines recommen-
dation that at least half of your
grains be whole grains.

JROTC Cadets I


To The Nation's


Hardee Senior High School's
Air Force Jtnior Reserve
Officer Training Corps closed
the. year with a trip to
Washington, D.C.
Each year, the program takes
a group of its cadets on an end-
of-year educational journey.
Out of a corps of 118 cadets, 17
were chosen to explore the
nation's capital on a five-day
Curriculum-in-Action trip June
13-18.
The cadets used this opportu-
nity to expand either education-
al experience beyond the
boundaries of the classroom.
Accompanying them were
aerospace science instructors
Lt. Col. Anthony Hingle and
Chief Master Sgt. Bob Waltich
and parent chaperones Marlene
Hebert and Cat Whiteside.
For the past three years,
Washington, D.C., has been the
unit's destination.
But unlike past years, when
air was the preferred mode of
travel, this year the group ven-
tured to experience rail, and
hopped aboard Amtrak in
Sebring for the 23-hour trip.
In D.C., they stayed at the
Harrington Hotel, a quaint hotel


uniquely situated in the heart of
Washington's tourist district,
only a few blocks from the
White House and National
Mall, and just steps away from
famous Pennsylvania Avenue
and, of course, Ollie's restau-
rant.
Cadets kept to a very busy
schedule, starting their day
before 7 a.m. and retiring as late
as 2 a.m. They visited the
Smithsonian's Museum of Na-
tural History, Native American
Museum and National Air &
Space Museum. Cadets also
visited the National Gallery of
Art, the Holocaust Memorial
Museum, the Supreme Court
Building and the Washington
National Cathedral.
They also toured the Capitol
building and learned of its sig-
nificance and what it represents.
The Capitol, which was started
in 1793, has been through many
construction phases and strug-
gles during war. It stands today
as a monument to the American
people and to government.
A special treat for the cadets
was their own special chartered
night tour of Washington. They
reserved a 25-passenger bus,


"ake Trip


Capital
complete with chauffeur, who
took them to visit all the major
monuments, including the
White House. The highlight of
the week was a guided tour of
old town Alexandria. From a
tour guide dressed in period
attire, they learned of events
from the colonial era that took
place in Alexandria, which was
a vital seaport of its time.
Cadets were reminded of
those who fought and gave their
lives for this country by walk-
ing the hallowed grounds of
Arlington Cemetery. They
watched in awe the precision of
the Changing of the Guards at
the Tomb of the Unknowns, and
learned the significance of the
number 21 in the event.
The sentinel marches 21 steps
past the final resting places of
the Unknown Soldiers of World
War I, World War II, Korea and
the crypt of the Unknown
Soldier of the Vietnam War.
With a crisp turn, the sentinel
turns 90 degrees to face east for
21 seconds. The sentinel then
turns a sharp 90 degrees again
to face north for 21 seconds.
After that moment, the sentinel
paces 21 steps north, turns and
repeats the process. This
reminded them of the respect
that should be given to the
many who fought and sacrificed
for this nation.
The trip was a great experi-
ence and a tremendous opportu-
nity for small-town students to
explore and learn about the
nation's capital. Helping to
make the trip possible were the
Republican Executive Commit-
tee and all the sponsors of the
World War II Veterans Tribute
event.
The students who attended
were Connor Shepard, Danson
Hensley, Crystal Hebert, An-
drew Hernandez, Staci Macias,
Jesse Belcher, Adam Khang,
Zane Whiteside, Michael Ra-
mirez, Alma Ramirez, Rei-
mundo Garcia, Jake Anderson,
Raquel Rosales, Chrissy
Snyder, Olivia Sanchez, Ashley
Hodges and Tabitha Prestridge.

HAVN A SUPPORTIVE FAMILY IS TIE NTIJMi-B3ER ONE
NGRBOEDI1T EN THMEFORMULA FOR SUCCESS.

I ]R AVES ONG!J

I've been married to Shirley for thirty nine years. We have two children Millie Tinsley who's married to Matt and Jackson
Webb, Jr., who's married to Kaylee. Our four grandchildren are Brook, Blake and Bailey Tinsley, and the newest addition,
Harrison Webb. As my wife reminds me almost daily, we're very blessed.
I have been fortunate to have lived and worked in Hardee County my entire life. Things are a lot different from when I rode to
school'on bus 33 driven by Mrs. White to Zolfo Springs Elementary in the old two story brick buildings, but different is some-
times a good thing. The youth of today have more opportunities than I ever dreamed of as a child. In order for them to take
advantageof these opportunities a good education is necessary. This is where I come in. Part of my good fortune has been
working with some of the greatest young people in our country. Providing them with a quality education has been and will
continue to be a passion of mine. I have enjoyed the interaction with the students and have made many lifelong friends. So my
main goal as a School Board Member will be to insure our students get the best education possible. I've spent almost seven
thousand days with them and that gives me the experience and knowledge necessary to determine their needs. These are some
of the things I will work for to make our school system better:
* I would like to see more parent involvement in the schools. Supportive parents and other family members are the key
to student success. I would also like to see the mentoring program expanded and focused toward single parent families and
students being raised by grandparents. Single parents and grandparents deserve all the help possible.
* Providing teachers with materials relevant to the mandated tests that they have to give, like FCAT, is mandatory.
* Classroom disruptions must be dealt with fairly but firmly so that our teachers are allowed to teach. Administration
needs to be more involved in the discipline process. I would like to see some changes to Pioneer Academy so it would be
more accessible to students who are chronic discipline problems.
* Making sure funds are allocated to meaningful projects is more important than ever with the depressed economy we're
experiencing. I know what's important.
* Last and most important, I will work for a safe and learner friendly system that treats everyone fairly. I am a man of my
word and I expect everyone in the education system to operate with honesty and integrity. Common sense will be one of my
most often used tools. I am a family man, a military veteran, a veteran teacher, I have multiple certifications in academic
education, and I will be a full-time School Board Member who has a genuine concern for the youth of today.

L
Q: If 1 keep my calories low
enough, can I lose weight
without exercise?
A: It's certainly possible to lose
weight without exercise if you
reduce calorie consumption
enough, but the chances of
keeping the weight off are
much lower without moderate
physical activity in some form
as part of your lifestyle Studies
show that without adequate
activity, about a quarter of
weight lost can be muscle tis-
sue. Muscle is a major calorie-
burner, which means you would
need to keep calories lower than
someone of the same weight
who kept more muscle. Many
studies show physical activity is
one of the best predictors of
who can maintain a lower
weight. The 200 or so calories
you burn by accumulating
about 30 minutes of daily mod-
erate physical activity can often
make the difference between an
eating pattern you can really
live with and one that's too hard
tQ continue because calories are
so low that there's no room for
the little extras you enjoy.
Besides, regular exercise low-
ers risk of heart disease, osteo-
porosis, diabetes and several
forms of cancer. Try to get rid
of the mental baggage of physi-
cal activity as something nega-
tive that you "should" do, and
shift to finding some enjoyable
activity as a way to energize or
de-stress.
Q: My New Year's resolution
to lose weight seems to have
gone nowhere. My wish is sin-
cere, so what can I do?
A: I don't know how much
you're scolding yourself about
your lack of success with the

resolution, but the first step is to
stop carrying that mental bag-
gage. Drop the judgments and
focus on a problem-solving
approach, trying to identify
what specifically has not gone
as you'd hoped and develop
some creative alternatives.
Instead of setting your goal as
weight loss something you
only indirectly control identi-
fy up to three changes in your
behavior which you directly
control. Try to find the sweet
spot between overly ambitious
changes that aren't realistic for
you and those so minimal they
won't have much impact. Target
very specific behaviors, such as
snacking on a piece of fruit
instead of sweets, beginning a
meal with three-quarters of
your usual portion, reducing
calories in mixed dishes by
adding more vegetables while
reducing the amount of refined
starches and meats, or eliminat-
ing a daily sugar-laden bever-
age. Behavior research shows
that when we put those targets
in writing and keep track of our
progress every day, we do better
than simply having a mental
intention to change. When you
encounter obstacles, don't give
up; try out some alternative
ways to surmount the barriers
you see. Don't be afraid to ask
for help from a registered dieti-
tian (RD) in doing this. You can
find an RD based on your zip
code at the website of the
American Dietetic Association.
Q: Does drinking lots of water
really promote weight loss?
A: You might hear that drinking
water "flushes fat out," but that
does not make sense with what
we know of how our body

processes food and nutrients,
and research doesn't provide
. any support for that idea. On the
other hand, switching to water
from high-calorie soft drinks,
lemonade, sweetened tea or
deluxe coffee drinks with
whipped cream toppings could
certainly play a big role in
weight loss if you drink these
beverages regularly. It might be
interesting to calculate what
you consume in a typical day;
it's easy to underestimate how
the calories from our beverage
choices can add up. Drinking
water before or during meals
may also help to fill you up and
slow you down to help you eat
less at meals. Studies are mixed
about whether or not this actu-
ally reduces calorie consump-
tion, but you could certainly test
out how it works for you.
Remember, the goal is not to eat
less than you need; it's to avoid
the over-eating that can occur
when you come to a meal too
hungry or eat too quickly to
notice when you've had
enough.
Q: Is cottage cheese a good
source of calcium?
A: Cottage cheese is usually not
as concentrated in calcium as
milk, yogurt and other cheeses
that are produced differently.
Cottage cheese averages about
60 to 100 milligrams (mg) of
calcium in a half-cup serving,
which you'll see listed on food
labels as 6 to 10 percent of
Daily Value. That's substantial.
ly less than the 300 mg in a cup
of skim milk, which provides
about the same number of calo-
ries as one half-cup of cottage
cheese. However, some compa-
nies add extra milk protein
(whey) or supplemental calci-
um to their cottage cheese,
which generally doubles the
calcium content. All cottage
cheese is a good source of pro-
tein and other nutrients, but if
you're counting on it for calci-
um, look for the highest-calci-
um, low-fat or fat-free versions
and take at least a three-fourths
cup portion.

IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO?

2 Hours Can Chango A Life


By KAREN CAMPBELL PROUGH
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Have you ever asked an 8-year-old
what would make him happy? One day I
asked a foster child I was visiting with
'that very question. I will never forget
his answer.
'There's just one thing I want," he
said, his brown eyes looking at me nerv-
ously.
"What's that?" I asked, noticing that
he seemed braced for the worst.
Then, in a firm grownup voice
he said, "I don't want them to get
me. I don't want to ever see them
again."
I knew he was talking about his
parents. "Honey, they can't ever
hurt you again," I reassured him.
"You're going to be adopted by the ones
you now call Mom and Dad. You'll be
fine."
He grinned and gave me a big hug.
Then he started telling me about his
new friend and how he fell off his bike.
He even pulled up his shirt sleeve to
show me the red scratch on his elbow.
Finally, I had to tell him it was time for
me to go.
"Can you come tomorrow?" he asked.
"Not tomorrow," I replied, "but
soon." After one more hug we said our
goodbyes, and he went off to go play
with his friends.
A child's life should be fun, carefree
and filled with love. But some children
face far more abuse than you can ever
imagine.
A child simply cannot fight against
the abuse and neglect coming from the
adults who are supposed to care for him.
But a child who has someone like you,
someone who volunteered to become a
Guardian Ad Litem, has a much better
chance for a life free from abuse.


As a guardian in the Guardian Ad
Litem program, you can make a differ-
ence in a child's life. The court system is
so overcrowded as it deals with the
adults in these cases that unless a child
has this special person to speak up for
him, the authorities might not know that
he is suffering.
Being this special guardian is not
always easy and can sometimes be frus-
trating. But when I see how volunteer-
ing just one or two hours a month
can make such a big difference in
a child's life, it's all worthwhile.
It's your touch of love and com-
passion that can make the differ-
ence.
Today we have thousands of chil-
dren who need a guardian to work with
them. This is why the Guardian Ad
Litem program is actively recruiting vol-
unteers to work with these children.
If you would like to find out how you
can volunteer, and make a difference in a
child's life, call the Guardian Ad Litem
office in Bartow at (863) 533-4849. It
only takes a couple hours to change a
life.
If you want to help a child who has
been thrust into the court system via alle-
gations of abuse or neglect, call the local
office at 773-2505. You can speak up for
that child, while everyone else is talking
for the adults in the case. Someone needs
to do it. Let it be you! If you have a heart
for children, remember:' If not you, then
who?
If you want to help, a child who has been

tions of abuse or neglect, call the local

storm. The hurricane straps or
anchors may have rusted, be-

lost stabilizers or support piers
or made be in need of a longitu-
dinal tie-down system at the
front or rear of the home. For

'BUT WHAT DO THEY REALLY DO?'
The curator of your Cracker Trail Museum is the keeper of
your memories. He or she is the extension of your imagination,
attempting to properly display those memories for today's genera-
tion of guests visiting the museum so they can adequately obtain a
snapshot view into Hardee County's past.
The curator of your Cracker Trail Museum is the protector of
your possessions, the purveyor of your memories and the visionary
of your experiences.
Four thousand pieces of Hardee County and pioneer history
grace the walls, cases, cubicles and open spaces of Cracker Trail
Museum. Each curator of Hardee County's 63-year-old history
center has taken it on as his or her obligation to properly protect
and display your items for generations to come.
It is that unspoken obligation that each curator has possessed
that has kept this county entity a "charming," "informative," "his-
toric" and "wonderful experience," as examples of only a few of
the comments made by many of those guests who sign the guest
register at the museum.
The curator of your Cracker Trail Museum is involved in your
community affairs, thus allowing that person to not only be
informed of activities directly influencing future programs initiat-
ed within the museum walls but to also be a spokesperson for the
museum while involved in outside activities.
No one person can be responsible for the success of Cracker
Trail Museum. It has been a combination of an open-minded Park
Advisory Board, the gentle guidance of county supervisors and the
faith that our Board of County Commissioners has placed in the
necessity for the continuance of a "building for your belongings."
Without the mental acuteness, perseverance and imagination,
a museum curator becomes a custodian to a building manned only
with a dust rag rather than innovative ideas. It is those innovative
ideas that have allowed your Cracker Trail Museum to evolve into
what it is today.
We hope that you will be part of the faithful participants who
have enabled Cracker Trail Museum to be the historic center that it
is today. We hope that as you participate in county activities and
events, you will take a few moments to discuss with your Cracker
Trail Museum curator the family item that you have been "mean-
ing to donate" or an idea that we may want to implement.
This is your county museum, and your museum curator values
your input as well as your donations.

A man took his girlfriend to a
Chinese restaurant for dinner.
Looking at the menu, he asked,
"How would you like your rice -
fried or boiled?"
"Thrown," she answered.
Many are anxious to get
married. But it's better to be
happily unmarried than to be
unhappily married.
So take the Lord into your plans.
Then after marriage you won't be
bothered about alibis and alimony.
Many a marriage would be
happy if the couple remembered
this: their hearts belong to each
other but their souls belong to the
Lord.
The Bible says, "Each one of
you must love his wife as he loves
himself, and the wife must respect
herhusband."

Even the best putt can stop at the edge of
the hole. It's only a game, but life's setbacks
aren't always so trivial. What if you miss out on
something really big? Where do you find strength
to endure disappointments? Spiritual values are
constant. Fortunes may change, but God's House
stands firm. The truths and inspiration you find
there give meaning to life. Be inspired this week.

August 12, 2010, The Herald-Advocate 3C


Greetings from Fort Green!
The Back-to-School Bash at
Fort Green Baptist was certain-
ly a big bash hit! There were
children everywhere, and they
all seemed to be enjoying the
big water slides. The dunk tank
had a lot of participants, as all
the youngsters were anxious to
dunk our pastor, Steve Mc-
Gaughey, and member Paul
Adams. I don't believe they
minded the dunking as warm as
it was.
Randy Davis cooked the pork
for the pulled-pork sandwiches,
and he always does a terrific job
on anything he cooks. The en-
tire day on Saturday was a huge
success. Faye Davis planned
another covered-dish dinner
after church Sunday so the chil-
dren could enjoy the slides a lit-
tle more and then, as she is a
"glutton" for punishment or is
getting stars for her crown, she
had a lock-in for the junior and
senior high-school students.
Needless to say, when she hit
the bed Monday morning she
was out for the day!
Tammy Hellein was able to
come Saturday afternoon to
pick up her daughter and want-
ed to thank everyone for pray-
ing for her. She is able to see
now and is improving daily.
Little Johnee Davenport
came up to me on Saturday and
said you didn't write my name.
I thought she was talking about
the scissors I had around my
neck with my name on them to
use in cutting off the tips of the
Popsicles for the youth. I was
explaining to her that I had just
put my name on them, and she
said no, you didn't write my
name in the paper! She will
turned 4 on Sunday. Happy
birthday to you, Johnee! She
was having a party Sunday
afternoon. Her sister, Charley,
turned 14 on Aug. 3, so I really
goofed up. Happy birthday
wishes also to you, Charley.
While on the subject of birth-
days, Ashley Abbott celebrates
today (Thursday).
Pat Albritton is recovering
nicely from her recent foot sur-
gery. Charlton Sadler did not
have the scheduled knee sur-
gery Monday. Instead, he had


stents inserted. As you all
know, when you reach a certain
age, before surgery we must get
clearance about our old tickers
and they discovered a problem
with his. It is sure a good thing
he had proposed knee surgery,
as it is much better to discover
problems with your heart before
an attack!
Bobby Lynn was scheduled
for surgery Wednesday. Buddy
Patten seems to be improving
and is at the Spring Lake Nurs-
ing Home in Winter Haven.
Debbie Prestridge received the
bad news that she had cancer
and has started radiation.
Margie Albritton began her
radiation Tuesday and will have
five days a week.
Please pray for all these sick
and remember the Mosaic em-
ployees who expect to lose their
jobs.
Betty Walker was able to
attend the Back-to-School
Bash. She is continuing to
improve.
Tim and Barbara Casey were
happy to have their nephew,
Tom, attend church with them.
Mabel Williams is enjoying her
sister, who is visiting. People
are fortunate to have family
able to visit.
I baked Avie a cream-cheese
pound cake on her birthday.
Julia Faye Davis used to bake
these for all the special occa-
sions at Fort Green and mine
does not taste nearly as good as
Julia Faye's always did. We all
miss Julia Faye, but she is just
not able to attend church any-
more. Julia said she misses her
sister, Harriet, who has moved
to Hardee Manor and is improv-
ing, as they make sure she gets
her medicine on time!
Bayleigh Pierstorff left for
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural
College in Tifton, Ga., on Tues-
day. This is a new era in her
life and I am sure her family
will miss her. You are happy
for her to be pursing her dreams
but life changes are a little trau-
matic! Bayleigh and all the
other graduating seniors need
our prayers as they embark on
new beginnings.
Please remember to pray for
each other and our country.

Playing Can Help

Combat Childhood Obesity


Fort Green News
By Rilla Cooper
773-6710


Play is in peril. Play is quick-
ly disappearing from our chil-
dren's lives, and it's taking a toll
on the health and happiness of
our children, our families and
our communities. Today, chil-
dren spend less time playing
outdoors than those in any other
generation, spending instead an
average of 7.5 hours a day in
front of a screen.
Lack of play is directly
linked to increased childhood
obesity-one of the main issues
facing the younger generation
today. The White House
Childhood Obesity Task Force
recently issued a report with
recommendations on how to
"solve the problem of childhood
obesity within a generation."
Physical activity and play were
cited as key elements. Lack of
play is also linked to a decrease
in creativity, imagination, prob-
lem-solving skills, resiliency
and an increase in classroom
behavior problems.
Play Matters!
"Play is inherently active and
is a long-term, preventative
measure for obesity. Kids who
play are less likely to develop
obesity-related problems. Play
is also a critical factor for im-
proving attention, attitudes, cre-
ativity, memory and so many
other vital learning skills," said
Darell Hammond, CEO and
Co-Founder of KaBOOM!, the
national nonprofit leading the
movement to save play. "We
want to restore a culture of play
so that playing and being active
are a natural part of our lives."
Saving Play!
For 15 years, KaBOOM! has
led the effort to help save play
by constructing innovative, kid-
inspired play spaces, using a
community-built model that
improves the well-being of chil-
dren as well as the neighbor-
hoods in which they live.
"Organizations such as Ka-
BOOM! are necessary not just
to the health of our children, but
to the health of the entire


FLORIDA MARKETS AT A GLANCE
For the week ended August 5, 2010

Toddlers Can Get


Fluoride Treatment


With the stroke of a brush,
Hardee County children under
the age of 4 can now have a flu-
oride varnish treatment at the

The varnish treatment is
applied by dental personnel fol-

screening will provide early
cavities detection and possible
,referral to a pediatric dentist.
The treatment is free to
Medicaid patients and costs
only $15 for those without
Medicaid.
The topical, painless fluoride
treatment' allows for a healthier
smile in less than five minutes.
Since the fluoride varnish is
applied directly to the child's
teeth, less of the product is

The fluoride varnish quickly
adheres to the teeth and is slow-
ly released to the tooth surface.
The main benefits of the fluo-
ride varnish treatment are its
ability to prevent early decay
and protect a child's teeth from
future painful problems such as
cavities, fillings, root canals or
crowns. Tooth decay is one of
the most common preventable
diseases in children.

Sidewalks, sidewalks, side-
walks, a repeated theme in pos-
sible projects for state dollars
for Nardee County.
At last week's meeting of the
Hardee County Commission,
one of the tasks was to rank city
and county projects for the state
Department of Transportation's
five-year program for trans-
portation enhancement funding.
These would be for inclusion in
.the DOT program 2012-2016
and would be for the 2016 fiscal
year.
Community development/-
grants coordinator Janet Gil-
liard presented a power point
on seven proposed projects,
commissioners ranked them
and the rankings were collated
and presented before the com-
mission meeting was over.
Ranked number one was an
estimated $241,224 for con-
structing a new sidewalk from
McEwen Road (leading into
Hilltop Elementary and the
Junior High schools) to the
northern entrance of Pine Cone
Mobile Home Park, a distance
of 2,515 feet.
Number two was a joint par-
ticipation project for the county
and three municipalities, about
$200,000 for a Comprehensive
Pathway Plan to interconnect
greenways and trails, parks,
bikepaths and existing and
potential sidewalks. Complet-
ing the plan would enable all
four public entities to apply for
a variety of grants, for instance,


Save Routes to School. The
countywide Transportation Saf-
ety Team would be the lead
agency for the plan.
The third-ranked project was
$90,459 for replacing 1,200 feet
of deteriorating sidewalks along
SR 66 to East Third Street that
children use to get to
Schoolhouse Road and the
Zolfo Springs Elementary
School.
The fourth- and fifth-ranked
projects were a pair of side-
walks in Bowling Green. Most
important is about $400,000 for
a 5,280-foot sidewalk along
Dixieanna Drive from County
Line Road to Hardee Street to
allow school children safer
routes to school. The second is
similar, $220,000 for a 3,168-
foot sidewalk from Doc Coil
Road to Lake Branch Road, a
place where children have to
walk in the road because there
are no sidewalks.
Although Commissioner
Dale Johnson did not want the
project included at all, ranked
sixth was a 1,620-foot sidewalk
from Pine Cone Mobile Home
Park to the U.S. 17 and SR 62
intersection. Since DOT has
already said a sidewalk on SR
62 to Country Manor Apart-
ments was not feasible, Johnson
felt there was no point to con-
structing a sidewalk only to SR
62.
The final ranked project was
$546,775 for the last phase of
the Wauchula Historic Train
Depot restoration. The exterior
and the north end interior are

VALUE ADJUSTMENT BOARD
ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING

The Hardee County Value Adjustment Board,
consisting of two County Commissioners,
one School Board member, and two citizens,
will hold a. meeting on Wednesday,
September 08, 2010, beginning at 9:00 a.m.

The meeting will be held in the Hardee County
Commission Chambers, 412 W. Orange
Street, Room 102, Wauchula, Florida.


completed and is designed as a
community center/conference
room where tables can be set up
for meetings. The south interior
could be offices, perhaps for the
Chamber of Commerce, Main
Street Wauchula or whatever.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-renewed the franchise con-
tract for Hardee County
Disposal Inc. to continue
garbage collection and disposal
services for an additional five
years beyond the contract
which expires Sept. 30, 2012, or
to Sept. 30, 2017.
The company asked for the
additional contract to allow it to
plan for equipment purchases,
including two new trucks and
new recycling equipment since
it now operates a recycling cen-
ter to support the county's recy-
cling effort. While it usually has
a cost-of-living adjustment up
or down yearly, the company
will freeze rates for the first
three years of the new contract,
Sept. 2010-2015.
-renewed the solid waste
and fire assessment rates for
another year. With a decrease in
the cost-of-living index since
last year, it actually lowers the
solid waste assessment for col-
lection by 35 cents. The new
yearly assessment rates are
$102.41 per household for col-
lection and the same $70 per
household for disposal rates. In
the communities the collec-
tion/disposal rates are incorpo-
rated into the utility bills. The
total solid waste assessment is
$172.41 per household.
The solid waste annual as-
sessment rates are unchanged,
$136 for residential unit, 49
cents per acre for vacant land,
$10 per unit for transient occu-
pancy (hotel, RV, etc.), and per-
square- foot rates for non-resi-
dential property of 23 cents for
commercial, nine cents for
industrial/warehouse and 24
cents for industrial.
-approved the agreement
and accompanying resolution
for the SCOP (Small County
Outreach Program) state trans-
portation funding grant of
$2,552,471 for resurfacing the
rest of Sweetwater Road, from
Crewsville Road to SR 66. The
original SCOP agreement fund-
ed only half of the resurfacing
project. Some funds not used by
another district allowed finish-
ing this project, said Public
Works Director/Engineer Kevin
Atchley.
-delayed a request by
Cynthia Hodges and Dolores
Williams to waive fees for End
Time Ministries to build a
6,000-square-foot sanctuary on
5.26 acres at 990 Martin Luther
King Jr. Avenue, where it is
hoped to have after-school, day
care, soup kitchen, youth min-
istries and a hurricane shelter
for the community.


Since some of the expected
fees were not included in the
request, the ladies were asked to
meet with new Planning
Director Kevin Denny and
Building/Zoning Director Jerry
Smith and make sure all fees
were included in the request
and return to the Aug. 19
evening meeting.
-approved joining in a consor-
tium partnership with Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council for a sustainable com-
munities regional planning
grant.
--appointed Shujwana
Hodges to the Affordable
Housing Committee to replace
Dee Willliams-Tatis and reap-
pointed Oralia Flores, Sue
Baker, Talmadge Albritton and
Joyce Maenpaa to another two-
year term and re-appointed
Mattie Daniels and Adeline
Hudson as alternates.
-appointed Lavonda K.
Rogers to the Indigent Health
Care Board to replace the term
of Gene Davis.
-approved a contract with
Excavation Point Inc. for
$18,457 for installing perforat-
ed HDPE pipe, inlets and recon-
struction of the invert at Annex
II where flooding regularly
occurs adjacent to the entrance
to the Tax Collector and Tax
Assessor's portion of the build-
ing.
-rescinded the award to
Stewart Construction for the
Hardee County Water
Treatment Plant Operations
Headquarters Project without
prejudice. The company is
unable to fulfill its contract due
to a death in the leadership of
the company, but it will not
prejudice it from future b ids.
After a long discussion of the
project and next highest bid, on
the advice of county attorney
Ken Evers, a decision was
made to re-award the bid at the
Aug. 19 meeting to allow time
for all other bidders to be noti-
fied. Because of the county's
local preference three percent
option, Lavon Cobb Construc-
tion would be the next lowest
bid for the 64,000-square-foot
building which will house tech-


nicians, laboratory, communi-
cations, equipment controls and
offices with additional space
used temporarily for a parking
garage to protect mobile equip-
ment but eventually to be
enclosed for additional staff.
About 30 sub-contractors,
responding to a variety of com-
munity rumors, attended the
meeting in support of Cobb get-
ting the contract as it would put
about 150 local people to work.
They were unhappy that the
Stenstrom Village project was
not using any local subcontrac-
tors when most are in need of
work due to the economic
downturns.
-heard a brief discussion
from Evers on the legal pro-
ceedings on the Mosaic Fort
Meade Mine Extension. On
July 30, a federal judge in
Jacksonville denied the coun-
ty's motion to be an intervenor
in the Sierra Club lawsuit
opposing Mosaic's expansion
into Hardee County. The judge
felt Mosaic was adequately rep-
resenting Hardee County's
.interest in the matter. On Evers'
advice, the commission decided
to not appeal that decision.
Evers said it could take up to
a year to settle Mosaic's appeal
of the "temporary" injunction
issued against Mosaic mining in
Hardee County and directing
the U.S. Corps of Engineers to

The Herald-Advocae

review the mine plan. The
judge, however, seemed to not
approve of Sierra Club's con-.
tention that an environmental
increment study was needed,
Evers said.

As a School Board Member:
I will look into concerns of each individual citizen, parent

I am personally concerned that our schools are losing state
and federal funding as a result of losing migrant students
each year. To help subsidize these funds, each family is
being asked to save Box Tops 4 Education. I have a goal to
raise $50,400 with Box Tops. The tax assessor's office tells
me we have over 8,000 single-family dwellings in Hardee
County. If only 4,000 save 14 Box Tops a month for the 9
months we are in school, we will meet this goal!

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg
FOURTH OF JULY BULLARAMA
We all celebrate the Fourth of July as a national holiday, but
this year it was also a time for celebration for the McIntyre clan.
And by that I mean a winning holiday, as they walked off (or
should I say rode off and bucked off!) with the winner's money at
the annual Bullarama held at the Arcadia Rodeo Grounds.
*Anyone in Hardee County who has ever been in need of a far-
rier certainly knows of Gordie and Mike McIntyre, brothers who
for years have trimmed and shod horses, until Gordie's health
forced him to retire about 1-1/2 years ago. Both of these men were
avid rodeo riders in their younger days, so it should come as no
surprise that two of Gordie's sons, Jake and Clay, are top bullrid-
ers.
Locally, Jake and Clay McIntyre have a large fan base as bull-
riders in the SSBR (more of that alphabet soup!)-the Southern
,States Bull Riders-and they travel throughout the southeast
region to spend eight seconds (hopefully!) on the backs of mon-
strous beasts that have been bred and trained to spin, kick and buck
these riders off in any way they can.
This year's Bullarama was held on Saturday night, July 3, and
it kicked off with a favorite rodeo event, the mutton bustin'. It was
my great pleasure to witness the roughstock debut of Jake's 5-year-
old son, Baye. And of course he was decked out in a bullrider's
finest-chaps and a vest (the vest is not for show, but is used to
protect the upper body of a rider). What a respectable ride Baye
had, placing second in the group of riders. First place went to our
own Cody Lane Vina, who is a. champion mutton buster, so both
boys can consider themselves winners.
Well, summer was upon us, so the rain started shortly after the
mutton bustin' ended, and it rained throughout the rest of the entire
event. But that doesn't stop
rodeo-all it means is that when
/ you dismount the bull, you hope
you land on your feet!
S- Jake and Clay were both
Awarded re-rides, as problems
occurred with the bulls they rode.
I Clay's re-ride paid off, landing
him in the short go, but Jake's re-
ride was not quite so successful.
As fate would have it, Jake still
S placed in the initial round, and was
awarded a spot in the short round.
(At events such as this, the top 8-
Showing his winning 10 scores from the initial round
buckle is Cody Lane move up to the short, or final,
Vina. round, which determines the win-
ner and the money.)
While the cowboys and the bulls were getting set for the short
round, the crowd was entertained by the cowgirls, with both junior
and senior barrel-racing. By this time the rain was really coming
down hard-I think that's where the term "cowgirl-up" comes
from! The McIntyre family was well-represented, with Jake's
wife, Crystal, taking home th second-place spot in the senior bar-
rel-racing, to be beat onl, by her sister, Katlyn Quintero.
(Katlyn's husband, Melmo, i, a well-known bullrider, and rode in
the State Finals of the Florida Cattlemen's Association ranch rodeo
on the Adams Ranch team.)
Crystal's daughter, Cealie Whitaker, rode in the junior barrels.,
but was up against those tough Johnson sisters-with Jacey taking
first place and Shelby taking second. I can remember Cealie start-
ing out at the Reality Ranch youth rodeos, with that.sweet smile of
hers. But don't let those cowgirls' sweet smiles fool you-they
can sure burn up an arena when those three barrels are out there!
The short round finished up the evening. Jake rode Panda, who
was voted the.2009.SSB.R Bucking Bull of the Year (see, in rodeo,
tl.0animats-get awards, too!), and Panda proved himselfitoo much
for the former PBR "Built-Ford Tough" rider. But that didn't stop

this family from taking away top honors, iss Clay'scored 87-1/2
points on Babysitter to win the event. Really, Clay, how can you
not break out laughing when you tell people you stayed on a bull
named "Babysitter"?
There was a lot of excitement provided by the McIntyre clan,
and all the other winners and participants. Check out the monthly
SSBR event in Myakka City on the second Saturday of every
month, where you can see Jake and Clay, as well as our own Tony
Webb, tackle those bulls.
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.

Cowboys and Cowgirls!

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

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
You may have heard that oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf. But every morning
our spotter planes and helicopters continue to search for oil off the coast, heading
to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared photography. If oil is
found, they radio down to the ships and boats of all sizes that are supporting the
cleanup effort and working to collect the oil, These are local shrimping and fishing
boats organized into task forces and strike teams, plus specialized skimmers
mobilized from around the world.

We have recovered more than 35 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 millions of 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 $3.9 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
