investment' Tumbles Down


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Coker building is coming
down.
With closing costs and an
environmental study, it was pur-


chased by the city of Wauchula
in November 2008 for
$379,248. There were plans in
2010 to spend an. additional
$335,000 for renovations for
incubator businesses and a 44-


unit parking lot.
The building has been vacant
for over 18 months and is now
in the process of demolition.
The $379,000 fiasco high-
lights some of the questionable


budget decisions of the Wau-
chula City Commission, which
bought it for at least triple its
market value, despite an ad-
verse environmental assessment
completed at the time of pur-


chase.
Plans, as late as November
2010, to renovate it went on
despite mid-2009 inspection
reports that deemed it "substan-
dard with continued occupancy
not recommended." The reno-
vation plans halted abruptly in
January when another inspec-
tion said the building was
beyond repair.
BACKGROUND
The city initiated its Com-
munity Redevelopment Agency
(CRA) program in 1997, taking
a portion of tax money away
from city and county tax rolls.
Called Tax Increment Funding
(TIF), it froze tax revenue at
1997 levels and applied any
excess to the CRA, an average
of $650,000 a year.
The Wauchula City Commis-
sion acted as the CRA board,


adjourning its regular meetings
to reconvene as that board. In
May 2008, the commission/-
CRA board took over the Main
Street/CRA program. On, the
commission at that time were
Troy Brant, Connie Spieth,
Mayor Ken Lambert, David
Royal, Clarence Bolin, Heather
Lee and Jerry Conerly.
New CRA/Main Street direc-
tor Jessica Newman did not
begin work until. January 2009.
It was in the interim between
May and December 2008 that,
the commission/board pur-
chased the Coker Building.
ENVIRONMENTAL
ASSESSMENT

chase of the Coker Fuel
Building at 321 W. Main Street,

i Most everyone has heard of
the Dutch artist who cut off his
own ear or, in the least, has
heard the 1970s hit song "Starry
Starry Night," written about
van Gogh and his most world-
renowned painting.
Now, Wauchula Elementary
School is offering Hardee
Countians a chance to view a
museum-like traveling art ex-
hibit featuring reproductions of
some of van Gogh's most
famous images.
"You may recognize 'Starry
Night,' but you'll see it in a way
you have never seen before,"
the traveling exhibit promises.
"So crisp and clear, you can see
every brush stroke that Vincent
van Gogh put to canvas."

Ousted Officials



Can Run Again


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
In an unexpected twist, all
five Wauchula city commis-
sioners who were expelled from
office will be permitted to run
for their own vacant seats, the
Governor's Office confirmed
last week.
And, should any of the quin-
tet win in the special election
set for May 10, Gov. Rick Scott
will allow the vote to stand and
will take no further action
toward removal.
"If the people of the local
community feel it is appropriate
to cast a ballot for this person
even after he's been sanctioned
by the governor for wrongdo-
ing, then the governor will not
stand in the way," Brian
Hughes, deputy communica-


tions director, said from Tal-
lahassee on Friday.
"What happens next is up to
the local community," he
added.
His remarks came after local
word that at least one of the
ousted commissioners was con-
sidering running to retake his
seat.
Hughes, however, was unable
to cite any precedent of an
elected official taken from
office by a governor who then
ran in the election to fill his
own vacancy.
Scott on Feb. 11 issued an
ultimatum to Wauchula city
commissioners David Royal,
Jerry Conerly, Clarence Bolin,
Val Patarini and Dan Graham:
resign or be removed.

HISTORIC HOME LOST


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
A 100-year-old home was destroyed by fire on Wednesday night. The old two-story Mabry Carlton home, which had
been moved from East Main Street where Joe L. and Pat Davis live now, had been moved to Rabbit Run off Ed Wells
Road near Seven-Mile Point. According to Fire-Rescue Lt. Greg Pfeiffer, the call that a home was engulfed in flames
was received at 11:14 p.m. Three engines, a tanker and ambulance arrived at the scene in 10 minutes with a dozen
staff. About 3,600 square feet on each story, the home could not be saved though using water from the tanker and
a nearby pond. Most firefighters left about 3:45 a.m. although a brush truck remained until the fire marshal arrived.
The cause of the fire was thought to be electrical. There were no injuries as owners Rick and Krista Johnston were
in Orlando where she was hospitalized.

The annual Pioneer Park Days began Wednesday in Zolfo S.
Springs and will continue through Sunday. This and the county fair .
are the two biggest events of the year in Hardee.
A special tabloid section on Pioneer Park Days appears inside
this edition.
Admission is $2. There is a lot to see, plenty of food, a huge
flea market, lots of engines, and free entertainment at the
Nickerson-Ullrich Building.

A Feb. 5 poker tournament was held at Torrey Oaks Golf
Course Clubhouse to raise money for the Hardee Athletic
Foundation.
The tourney, with a $100 buy-in, raised about $8,000 for
Hardee athletics.
The champion was Marshall Gough who won $1,000. Steve
Hall won $500 for second place, and Jose Carillo won $300 for
third place. Gough, is battling cancer, is a retired farmer and loves
a good card game. I'd like to see him enter the 2011 World Series
of Poker.

letic foundation and was won by Jake Crews, The 2011 Little Miss

Last year in Wauchula gas prices dropped to $2.53 a gallon fol-
lowing the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Recent political
unrest in the Middle East has caused speculators to drive up the
futures price of oil to about $98 a barrel. Gas prices go up almost
immediately when that happens but are slower to drop as oil prices
decline. One wonders is there is some kind of conspiracy at work.

Kenny Weis, who passed away Feb. 15 at age 64, had a lot of
friends. First United Methodist Church of Wauchula was filled for
his funeral service.
Rev. Danielle Upton, the church pastor, and Rev. Steve Polk,
pastor of Bowling Green Methodist Church, officiated.
A brother, Carl Weis, also gave a fine testimonial about
Kenny's life.
Kenny was a good athlete, excelling in softball, bowling, base-
ball and basketball. He had a great sense of humor. He and his
brothers Carl and David grew up along Paynes Creek, where they
fished and shot squirrels, rabbits, quail and dove for the dinner *
table.
Kenny was also a good golfer and loved to fish. Carl said
Kenny often questioned whether his golfing friend Charles Cannon
was writing down all his strokes on the scorecard.
.Kenny worked for Eckerd Drugs in Wauchula but did not want
to move from Hardee, so he went to work for Nicholson Supply
Company and later had a long career with United Telephone
Company.
He contracted a rare form of lymphoma cancer in 2003 and
fought a long and spirited fight. This cancer is generally caused by
exposure to radiation and/or chemicals.

to bring it here, offering both
children and adults a chance to
view van Gogh's post-Impres-
sionist work without ever hav-
ing to leave the county.
Free to the public, the view-
ing is Tuesday from 5:30 to 7
p.m. The traveling art exhibit
will be set up in the multi-pur-
pose room next to the school's
media center, Patterson said.
"It will be set up like an actu-
a" art museum," she described.
"Everyone will have a chance
to see this art like it was meant
to be seen. It will be hung so
that people can stand back and
observe it. There will be some-
one to answer questions." And,
she added, there will be a bench
for viewers who want to sit and
fully soak in the artwork.
The exhibit also offers a take-
home souvenir, bookmarks de-
picting van Gogh's "Starry


Night" selling for $1 each.
Patterson said the traveling
art exhibit is part of the school's
Parent Night, so visitors can
also take in a Student Art Show
featuring drawings, paintings
and pottery. Nearly every child
has participated, she noted, and
their works of art will line the
hallways.
Plus. Patterson qdded, the
media center will be hosting a
Book Fair. It will offer chil-
dren's books at a variety of

Patterson said the traveling
exhibit will not only present a

but also give a history of the
famed artist and his life and
times.

DUNNING RL
TERRELL
Dunning R. Terrell, 87, of
Wauchula, died on Thursday,
Feb. 24, 2011, in Avon Park.
He was born in Bowling
Green on Sept. 17, 1923, and
had been a Haidee County
resident most of his life. He
graduated from Wauchula
High School in 1942, served
in the U.S. Navy from 1942 to
1945, and attended the Uni-
versity of Miami and Notre
Dame University, graduated
from Louisiana Tech with a
Bachelor of Science degree,
and received his Master's
from Louisiana State Univers-
ity.
Mr. Terrell's teaching and
coaching careers began in
1949 in Louisiana. He re-
turned to Wauchula in 1955,
teaching physical education,
general math and algebra at
Hardee Senior High School.
He coached basketball for 11
years, was an assistant foot-
ball coach for 11 years, and
also took a turn at coaching
baseball for a year or two.
Coach Terrell was a win-
ning coach while at Hardee,
taking the basketball team to
the State Finals in 1961. In
1964-65 and 1965-66, his
basketball teams won the
Southwest Florida Confer-

an
.ConUtnued From 1A
assessment was completed by
Lakeland-based engineers
Chastain-Skillman.
Dated Nov. 5, 2008, and
delivered overnight to the city
offices, the assessment conclud-
ed there were "three recognized
environmental conditions asso-
ciated with the property. A rec-
ognized environmental condi-
tion means the presence or like-
ly presence of hazardous sub-
stances or petroleum products
that indicate a material threat of
a release of such substances
into structures on the property
or into the ground, ground
water or surface water on the
property."
An auto service garage and/or
filling station with one under-
ground tank was on property to
the southeast of the Coker site
from 1914 to 1940. Under-
ground storage tanks containing
gasoline were approximately
200 f.qaorth of the property
from i until 1940. There
was a filing station with an
underground storage tank con-
taining gasoline on the north-
west corner of the property
from at least 1926 to 1940.

"Potential petroleum migration'
from those properties is consid-
ered a recognized environmen-
tal condition," said the report.
PROPERTY VALUATION
There is no record of an inde-
pendent appraisal of the Coker
property before its purchase in
2008. According to Hardee
County Property Appraiser
records, the market value of the
three parcels (lots 2-6 of Block
25 of the Carlton-McEwen
addition) was a total of
$112,312 in 2007, $112,344 in
2008 and 2009, and dropped to
$105,562 in 2010.
The concrete block/stucco
one-story commercial building
was constructed about 80 years
ago and had central air condi-
tioning. The property appraiser
value of just the building and
land it was on was $93,506 in
2008. Taxes were $2,120.96 on
22.76 mills in 2008. Once the
city purchased it, it was tax-
exempt in 2009 and 2010.
PURCHASE
According to commission
minutes, the first mention of the
purchase was at the July 14,
2008 meeting, when City Man-
ager Rick Giroux reported that
the city had an offer for a por-
tion of the church property at
131 S. Eighth Avenue for
$69,000 plus closing costs. It
was purchased with CRA tax
dollars for a total of $70,560.
Conerly then recommended
Giroux talk to Jerry Sr. "Jack"
and Kathryn C. Melendy and
their son Russell about purchas-
ing the Coker Fuel Building on
the corner of South Eighth
Avenue and West Main Street.
The next minutes entry is a
special meeting on Oct. 6,2008.
By that time Val Patarini was
chosen by the commission to
replace Troy Brant, who re-
signed when he moved out of
District 1, and Delois Johnson,
an employee of Lambert
Realty, had defeated Lee for her
District 3 seat. Patarini and
Johnson joined the commission
in the August meeting.
Lambert was absent from the
Oct. 6 meeting and would not
have voted as he was the Real-
tor representing the Melendys.
Giroux reported the Melendys
had agreed to sell all. three
parcels for $375,000 but he
needed commission approval to
initiate the contract. Conerly
made the motion and it was sec-
onded by Spieth. It carried
unanimously 6-0 with Lambert
absent.
In the CRA portion of the
meeting, Conerly made the mo-
tion to approve the $375,000
purchase and it was seconded
by Johnson:
The approved Resolution
2008-43 says "it is in the best
interest of the health, safety and
general welfare of the City and
its citizens to purchase the
Melendy property. . The Me-
lendy property is strategically
located in the downtown area
needed for parking and/or
development by the CRA."


The contract was signed by
the Melendys on Sept. 28, 2008
and signed by Mayor Royal on
Oct. 7. In an Oct. 7 addendum,
the Melendys specified they
would be willing to put up to
$25,000 for an environmental
assessment and correction.
The matter came up again at
the Nov. 10 commission meet-
ing when Lambert was again
absent. This discussion centered
on Coker Fuel's use of the
building after the purchase was
completed until the staff could
relocate. Conerly made the mo-
tion to give the tenant 30 days
and then begin rent of $1,000
per month. The motion was sec-
onded by Spieth.
BUILDING INSPECTIONS
After the adverse environ-
mental assessment, nothing
more is mentioned until July 6,
2009 when county Chief Build-
ing Inspector John F. Schmidt
notified the city that the Coker
Building violated 12 items of
the building codes-and con-
cludes "This building was
found to be in substandard con-
dition with numerous structural,
electrical and safety deficien-
cies. Continued occupancy of
this building is not recommend-
ed."
In addition, a Hardee County
Fire-Rescue inspection, also on
July 6, lists violation of four
fire/safety codes.
On Aug. 12, Giroux notified
Coker Fuel to vacate the build-
ing within 30 days. It has been
vacant since that time.

CURRENT EVENTS
CRA/Main Street director
Jessica Newman was unani-


mously hired to begin work in
January 2009. Her father,
Commissioner Jerry Conerly,
abstained from voting on that,
decision and was not part of the
selection committee recom-
mending her.
She was apparently not noti-
fied of problems with the Coker
building and began planning for
downtown improvement.
Last September, when the
2010 CRA update plan was
completed, Newman presented
a five-year plan for downtown
projects. (Coincidentally, Com-
missioner Dan Graham was
selected to join the commission
to replace Lambert, who had
resigned due to work conflicts
making it impossible for him to
make meetings).
Heading the list of downtown
projects was $355,000 for reno-
vations to the Coker building,
$100,000 in year one, and
$255,000 in year two. The plan
was to renovate the interior for
incubator retail/office/restau-
rant space with smaller store-
fronts. The immediate need was
to repair the roof and masonry
to prevent further deterioration.
When asked about progress
on that plan two months ago,
Newman advised that inspec-
tors had declared that the build-
ing was beyond repair. The
commission authorized Public
Works Superintendent.Ray Mc-.
Clellan to use city staff for the
demolition.
On Feb. 7, he advised an
asbestos study was being done.
On Tuesday morning, Mc-
Clellan said it showed two
small areas of Level I asbestos,
which could safely be removed
by wetting down the area to


keep the dust down and scrap-
ing it off with a shovel.
Work continues on the interi-
or demolition before the entire
building is razed.

ONE & ONLY-A pharmacy unlike any other in Hardee
County opened on Feb. 14 in Wauchula.
Wauchula Pharmacy is the second of its kind to be created and
owned by Vikram Rao. This pharmacy will be the only one in
Hardee County to provide free antibiotics, free home delivery, and
specific services to home health care and nursing facilities.
Wauchula pharmacy will be filling prescriptions just like any other
pharmacy, will be a walk-in pharmacy with a drive-through serv-
ice, and will have a consultant pharmacist available 24 hours a day.
Some of the other things it offers are a $4 generic program,
discount pet medicines, and free consultation with a licensed con-
sultant pharmacist.
"I wanted to open a pharmacy in Hardee County because it


was lacking in special services that are available in other areas,"
Rao said. "In this community there is no other pharmacy that can
offer the services that we are about to offer."
Rao gained his master's in pharmaceutical science at Long
Island University in New York. He also acquired his consultant
pharmacist license at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Rao
worked as a pharmacist at a CVS for eight years and then moved
to Florida, where he decided to do business on his own.
Wauchula Pharmacy is located at 518 S. Sixth Ave. (U.S. 17)..
Hours are 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 to
4 on Saturday. A website is currently in progress and should be up
and running shortly. For more information, e-mail WauchulaRx-
@gmail.com or call 774-3536.Pharmacy on U.S. 17 South.

RIGHT NEXT DOOR-Hardee Ranch Supply has moved
from its location of over 26 years, but only right next door.
The store opened in September 1984 after Ronnie Durance
saw a need for a low-margin and high-volume business to service
the people of Hardee County. The store contains feed for all differ-
ent types of animals, farm supplies, and health products for ani-
mals.
Hardee Ranch Supply is now located at 1301 U.S. 17 S. in
Wauchula. Durance had been leasing the previous location from
the Hardee Livestock Market, but did not wish to continue leasing
the building any longer.
"I saw an opportunity to gain some more equity in the business
by buying a place," stated Durance. "I thought it would be an
advantage to own a piece of property than to rent one. When you
rent property you will never get that money back but when you
invest in property, then you build equity in the business."
There are no plans to ever move again but there are means for
expansion. In the future Durance intends to put a vet clinic, a
mechanic shop, and possibly other establishments that are related
to the business on the property.
Even though the business is still up and running, a grand open-
ing will be held on March 12 from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will door
prizes, entertainment, refreshments, a bounce house for kids and
games. Everyone in the community is invited. For more informa-
tion call 773-4322.


This sign is found in front of the newly established
Wauchula Pharmacy on U.S. 17 South.

Although he was killed, oth-
ers carried on his dream. He
was only one man but he made
a difference.
I say that sometimes we have
to go through things in life to
get to where we want to be, and
Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream
encourages me to never give up.

Dream Come True
By Jacqueline D.Small
Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream,
To make his point he did not scream.
He traveled protesting violence and segregation.
He never took any weapons to a demonstration.
He just went where blacks weren't allowed,
with his head held high and proud.
He went to white businesses asking for all to be treated equal.
But they said, what he was doing was illegal.
In 1960 King joined a group boycotting a department store,
for this demonstration he was placed in jail.
Then along came Senator John Kennedy and Robert Kennedy
and had him released on bail.
He continued to march and plea for integration
without being violent.
Some said he's getting too much attention;
we got to find a way to make him silent.
April 3, 1968, M.L.K., Jr. delivered his speech
"I see the Promised Land," millions watched.
Later, on his way back to his hotel room
he was killed by a single gunshot.
Martin Luther King Jr., that dream you chose to pursue,
even though you were not here to see it, it came true.
In 2008 just as you planned,
Barack Obama's our President,a black man.
Now in America I can say we live as one nation,
and I thank you, Martin Luther King Jr. for your participation.

Dear Editor,
I wrote this poem in honor of
Black History Month. It was a
few days after Martin Luther
King's birthday.
When I wrote this poem I
thought of how even though he
was not the first to protest, he
never stopped fighting for
equality. He came out in front
of millions and said what others
were afraid to say. He gave oth-
ers the encouragement to stand
up for what was right..


Make This Year Your Year


Being a Janee of all trades"
means taking charge on all
fronts.
If you have it all under con-
trol, but would like to make
some positive changes, here is
how to make it happen:
Develop your daily "Life"
list and take an objective look.
Reevaluate your priorities so
the urgent doesn't drive out the
important;
Carve out time for exer-


cise: Making this positive
change will give you a boost of
energy, in addition to physical
and mental health benefits;
Make what you eat count.
Healthy eating will help you get
the right balance of vitamins,
minerals, and other nutrients to
help you feel your best and
have plenty of energy;
Establish a regular "play-
date" for you and your partner.
Don't forget, grownups need to


play, too;
Don't let your period be a
hassle. Why not think about
fewer periods? There is no med-
ical reason to have a monthly
period when you are on the Pill.
"For many women, a monthly
period is an annoyance, and
some women experience pain-
ful cramps and menstrual mi-
graines," said Shari Brasner,
M.D., professor, obstetrics and
gynecology, Mount Sinai
School of Medicine.
Women who are seeking con-
traception and the benefit of
fewer periods should speak to
their health care professional.
Seasonique (levonorgestrel/-
ethinyl estradiol and ethinyl
estradiol tablets) is a birth con-


trol pill specifically designed to
let women have four short, light
periods a year.
Just like other birth control
pills, Seasonique is 99 percent
effective when taken as directed
and you take one pill every day.
Seasonique tablets are indicated
for the prevention of pregnancy.
While you get four periods a
year, you're more likely to have
bleeding or spotting between
periods. This can be slight to a
flow like a regular period and
should decrease over time.
For more information and to
save on your Seasonique pre-
scription, visit www.sea-
sonique.com.
Important Safety Informa-
tion: Like other birth control


pills, prescription Seasonique
has serious risks including
blood clots, stroke and heart
attack. Smoking increases these
risks, especially if you're over
35. If you've ever had any of
these conditions, certain can-
cers, or if you could be preg-
nant, you should not take the
Pill.
The Pill does not protect
against HIV or STDs. You are-
encouraged to report negative
side effects of prescription
drugs to the FDA. Visit
www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call
1-800-FDA-1088. For hard
copy releases, see full product
information and for electronic
releases, see www.seasonique.-

Cracker Trail Ride Went Through Hardee


PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY
The 23rd annual Florida Cracker Trail Ride went through Hardee County on Feb. 16-17.
About 120 riders came through, camping at Duck and Dan Smith's ranch west of Ona
near New Zion and the next night at a Peace River/State Rd. 64/Florida Ave. site owned
by Bobby Krause. The trip starts near Bradenton and goes west along State Rd. 64,
Steve Roberts Special, and State Rd. 66 and ends at Fort Pierce. The week-long ride is
about 110 miles. In the 1800s, before fences, cowboys drove Florida cattle across the
state to ports in Tampa (Fort Brooke), Bradenton and Punta Rassa near Fort Myers.
Many of the cattle were shipped to Cuba. Florida also supplied cattle to the Confed-
erate Army during the American Civil War. These photos show some of the riders along


Steve Roberts Special and Cracker Trail past president David Reed (six years) and trail
boss (three years) standing by a horse. The ride re-enactment was the brainchild of
Marvin Kahn who also came up with the name. The route was approved by the Florida
Legislature. Pershing Platt, who was the first trail boss, was the one who suggested rid-
ing the trail with horses. The cattle drives ended in the late 1920s or early 1930s and
had started in the 1840s, said Reed. Julie Hinote of Lorida has ridden in all 23 events,
dating to 1988. George Masengale has been in all but the first one. The ride is held the
last full week of February. Riders do not have to ride the entire trial. Charlie Mercer is
the current president.

POLIT CAL CORRECTNESS
In a world full of blitical correctness, people are now filled
with fear when consid ring whether or not to say what needs to be
said.
This fear of telling the truth is mostly driven by the concern of
being outcast socially. While proclaiming the truth often requires
an element of tact, we cannot neglect the fact that we are required
speak it.
When studying God's Word, we begin to notice that the truth
hurts. Consider these thoughts pointed out by Jim Fields (A Brother
in Christ):
John the Baptist's message from the wilderness was not,
"SmileGod loves you." It was "0 generation of vipers, who hath
warned you to flee from the wrath to come?" (Matt. 3:7).
Jeremiah was not put into a miry pit-for preaching, "I'm OK,
you're OK." It was for crying against the adultery, idolatry and
other wickedness of his nation.
Noah's message from the steps of the ark was not,
"Something good is going to happen to you." He condemned the
world and was a preacher of righteousness.
Jesus Christ was not crucified for saying, "Consider the
lilies, how they grow," but for saying, "Woe unto you scribes and
Pharisees, hypocrites . fools and blind guides . whitewashe
tombs .. generation of vipers" (selected).
The truth hurts indeed. This reality is neglected by many when
seeking after God in this land full of political correctness.
People want to hear about how God will nurture and love
them. People don't want to hear about how sin is what condemns
them. People don't want to acknowledge that there is only one doc-
trine when it comes to matters of religion (2.John 9).
Get "Back to the Basics" and study for y' urself what the Bible
says about serving God.
It is true that God loves you and has a w nderful plan for your
life! The Bible teaches that God loves you, bu He also rebukes and
chastens those whom He loves (Revelation 3: 9).
Read God's Word. Study God's Word. OIey God's Word!

acres of land off SR 62 with six
buildings and a parsonage. The
church meets three times a

Congratulations go to the Hardee Wildcat hoopsters who went
all the way to the regional semifinals before bowing out to the Fort
Myers Bishop Verot Vikings on their court. The finals came down
to private schools, Tampa Prep, Berkeley Prep and Verot. Public
schools cannot compete when private schools can choose their stu-
.dents.
The five senior Wildcats are due a big round of applause for
their performance in their final season. Tony Rodriguez, D'Vonte
Hooks, Carl "Junior" Brown, Tre' Anderson and Jimmy Vallejo had
a super season, along with juniors Andrew Hooks, Keshun Rivers,
Jajuan Hooks and Bobby Brown, and soph Christian Moralez.
Brown especially showed strong character in leading the bench
support when he was sidelined with an injury.
Hardee basketball lost a good coach, mentor and friend last
week with the passing of Coach Dunning Terrell, who led Hardee
to the state finals in 1961. He was inducted into the Hardee Schools
Hall of Fame in 2005, the same year, he was named senior citizen
of the year.
Congratulations also to former Wildcat Casey Brutus in win-
ning a gold and three silver medals in his college conference cham-
pionships on Feb. 10-12. He has shown consistent and outstanding
improvement in his four years at Gardner-Webb. University in
Boiling Springs, N.C.
Now, we turn to spring sports, where there have been mixed
results. The Wildcat nine split four pre-season games, winning the
first and last and losing the middle games. They are 1-1 for the sea-
son, winning 11-10 to Frostproof and losing a 1-0 heartbreaker to
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney.
The JV 'Cats have won their first two games of the season.
The softball girls won their first two and ran into buzzsaws in
losing the next two.
Tennis is under way, and both the girls and boys squads are just
on the verge of winning. They will break through that barrier soon.
Weightlifting had its first meet last week, and the track teams
were in two invitationals on Friday and Saturday. Results in those
sports are slow coming in.
Junior high volleyball will be going soon. There are seventh
and eighth grade squads which play in double-headers, the seventh
graders at 5:30 p.m. and the eighth at 6:30.
Youth baseball and softball got started on Monday. The boys
are on the four new fields off Doyle Carlton Road, while the girls
now play at Farr and Heine fields off South Florida Avenue.
In boxing, 16-year-old Wauchula amateur Rigo Ramirez won
the 145-pound state Junior Olympics championship by unanimous
decision on Saturday, holding off htisaller opponent who had a
longer reach. We don't have details on wen and where the region-
al Junior Olympics will be.
A new boxer from Wauchula, Jose Alonzo, 22, made his debut
on Saturday in the novice class. He had moved up a weight divi-
sion and will be going back down. He trains in the Bowling Green
gym of Daniel Lozano, who also trains his 21-year-old son Daniel,
who is undefeated at 8-0.
Information from school and community events is always welcome.

March 3, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 3B


Greetings from Fort Green!
This weather is too beautiful
to be sick but there are always
those unfortunate enough to be
under the weather. Ronnie
Thomas moved to Sebring to be
near children and has four more
chemo treatments. The doctors
do not give him much hope, but
he is not worried.
A friend from my school days
has advised he has small-cell
carcinoma of the lung and has
moved to north Georgia for a
daughter to help him. All of us
who are healthy, able to take
nourishment every day and get
out of bed are in good shape!
We do need to pray for the sick.
Probably everyone is as tired
as Sherman and I are. It seems
like we were at the fair most of
the week! Hardee County really
supports their youth. All of the
Fort Green youth with animals
in the fair did real well. Holly
Brown, Tamara Griffiths, Kay-
lee Hogenauer, Dalton Richey
and Mason Waters all won blue
ribbons on their pigs. Hardee
County traditionally bids more
money than area counties and I
am very thankful. This is anoth-
er reason, among many, about
what is right with Hardee
County.
I do not know who all entered
items in the other part of the 4-
H event but Norma Alejandro
received two blue ribbons on a
pillow and a cloak. Kaylee
Hogenauer got a red on her
gator toy. They are all to be
praised for entering.
Brianna Waters was the first
runner-up in the Little Miss
Hardee County contest. Con-
gratulations! She wore her out-
fit to church Sunday morning
and everyone unable to go to
town Saturday was happy to see
it. She did look cute.
Quite a few people tell me
they read the Fort Green News
and I sure hope whomever did
something we don't like will
correct it. Someone evidently
buried an animal at the Fort
Green Methodist Cemetery
under the beautiful wild plum


tree. There is a wooden cross
with the word "SHEPHERD"
on it along with date and ini-
tials. Whoever did this, please
remove it. Most everyone
knows a committee maintains
the cemetery and we feel this
desecrates the cemetery.
We will have a workday at
the Methodist Cemetery on
April 16. This is a Saturday
and lunch will be provided.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Dunning
Terrell. The past two Sundays
have been spent attending "vis-
itation" for some of Hardee's
finest. Dunning and Ken Weis
will be missed.
While in town last Sunday, a
young man approached Sher-
man and me, as we were eating
Sunday dinner at the Double J,
and ask about the Silverman
family. His name, if I under-
stood it correctly, was Benny
Starling and he moved to
Immokalee in the early '60s.
The interesting thing he told me
was he worked for Izz'y Silver-
man in his nursery for 15 cents
an hour pulling weeds and was
proud of having a paying job
while in elementary school!
Quite a few of his friends were
envious of him.
Another busy weekend is
ahead as Pioneer Park is anoth-
er exciting event for our county.
For all the ones who say there is
nothing to do in this county,
they need to get busy and attend
all the wonderful functions!
Remember to pray for one
another, our country and the
military.
(Left Out Last Week)
Greetings from Fort Green!
This weather is picture per-
fect and feels great also. A cou-
ple were visiting in our church
last Sunday and said they spent
their time between Michigan
and Tennessee, and both were
cold so they came South. I sure
don't blame them!
There were too many inter-
esting things happening last
Saturday night. Faye Davis and.
others took the junior-high


youth to the Harlem Ambas-
sadors basketball game. The
Ambassadors were very funny
and you could tell they had a
heart for the youth. They told
them not to do drugs, stay in
school and go to college.
When they were signing
autographs, their lady player,
who had quite a few jokes, was
signing Norma Alejandro's
paper and when I introduced
Norma, she gave Norma her
sweatband from her arm and
wrote a note for her on the pro-
gram. That was going the extra
mile! I appreciate people like
that.
Another exciting happening
last Saturday was the Miss
Hardee contest. All of Fort
Green is proud of Danielle
Nicholson being the first run-
ner-up. I think she is the only
one associated with our church
and her grandparents attend,
Sam and Arden Rawls. On
Monday night Makayla Chan-
cey and Emily Albritton were in
the Junior Miss. Makayla is a
member of Fort Green and
Emily's grandmother, Gwen
Albritton, and her great-grand-
mother, Mildred Cooper, are
members of Fort Green. The
last Fort Green contestant that I
know about will be in competi-
tion this Saturday, Brianna
Waters, who is also a member
of Fort Green Baptist.
Fort Green did quite well in
winning prizes at the PRECO
meeting for District One at the
old College Hill School. Win-
ners were Judy Bargeron, Karen
Simino, Doris Thornton and I.
It was quite funny, as when
numbers were called Paul
Samuels would have that ticket.
It turned out people who had
come to vote gave their ticket to
him to hold and see if they won
a prize. His mother, Mary, told
me he had each ticket labeled
with a name!
Essie Deer was sick and in
Lakeland Regional for a few
days. She is home and was able-
to attend church Sunday morn-
ing, as were Leo and Lila Blink,

Brody Waters celebrated his
6th birthday on Valentine's Day
at his home with his family and
enjoyed pizza for supper.
Brody also had a small camp-
fire party on Saturday the 19th
with a few of his buddies, his
grandparents and mama and
daddy. His big sister, Brianna,
was there along with her friend,


Cassidy. They all had a great
time together. Brody received
that super gift, "money," and
can't wait to go shopping for
new video games! It seems im-
possible that Brody has already

who have been under the
weather. Pat Gugle was out as
her daughter, Stephanie, was
sick. Dawn Watson is home but
still undergoing therapy. Ru-
ben McQuaig had a heart cath
last week but it did not show
any problems and he has al-
ready returned to work. Please
pray for all of these.
This will be a busy week for
many of the Fort Green youth
as many have swine in the 4-H
show. Hopefully you were there
to support them for the show on
Tuesday and then the sale today
(Thursday).
The calendar is getting full
again at church. On March 13,
the youth will have another
fundraiser. They will be serving
the annual "O'Taters" dinner.
This will be immediately after
the morning services.
Joe Cranford stopped by the
house the other day while look-
ing at the Crawley's calf. He
said he had a beautiful new
solid red calf and wanted it in

I forgot the lovely lady's name
but she resides on Ollie Roberts

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They split games in the pre-
season tournament and the first
pair of season games.
The Hardee Wildcat varsity
baseball team is officially 1-0
after they got their season going
last week. This week's only
games are today (Thursday) at
Sebring in the back end of a
double-header, with the JVs
playing the early game, and
tomorrow at home against
Sarasota Booker.
Next week, there are dual
games also, at home for Fort
Meade on Thursday and at
DeSoto on Friday.
Head Coach Steve Rewis and
assistants Brian Alexy, Ryn
Heine and Travis Tubbs have a
varied squad and brought some
of the JVs up during pre-season
tournament time. Last week's
games were affected by some
players being involved in
Hardee County Fair activities.

Hardee 7, Fort Meade 6
Because of inclement weath-
er, Hardee got only one game in
during the Fort Meade Dia-
mond Classic, playing the home
team on Feb. 11, and winning 7-
6.#
With one away, senior Lin-
coln Saunders tripled and rode
home on a hit by classmate
Scott Donaldson. Fort Meade
left one runner stranded as "Cat
senior Justin Bromley had a
good start on the mound.
A double for freshman Kris
Johnson left him stranded in the
top of the third, while Fort
Meade evened the game in the
home half of the inning on a
double, stolen base and error.
Hardee got back ahead in the
third frame bat-around, sending
all nine batters to the plate.
Deonte Evans singled, Justin
Knight did the same. With two
out, Donaldson and Wintz
Terrell singled, bringing Evans
and Knight across home plate.
With two down, Johnson
walked and junior Dalton
Hewett's hit brought Donaldson
home. It was 4-1.
A Camp homer let Fort
Meade cut the Wildcat lead to
4-2. The 'Cats picked that up
with a fourth-inning single by
Evans and RBI double by
Donaldson. The Miners were
three up, three down in the
home half of the fourth. It was a
5-2 ball game.
Hardee went down in order in
the top of the fifth and Fort
Meade narrowed the gap to 5-4
with a pair of scores on an error
on a King hit and another Camp
homer.
Freshman Luke Palmer


walked and scored on a passed
ball in the top of the sixth.
Saunders singled and Donald-
son brought him home with
another hit. It was 7-4.
There was no more scoring
until a Miner rally in the bottom
of the seventh. Murrell Winter
gave up a pair of walks and an
error brought those runners
home. Winter got the last batter
to pop-up to end the game and
preserve the Wildcat win.
Bromley got the win with his
four innings of work and five
Ks. Winter got the save with
five Ks among the 14 batters he
faced.

Lake Gibson 7, Hardee 3
In the first game of the week-
long Highlander tournament in
Lake Wales, Hardee faced the
Lakeland Lake Gibson Braves.
Junior Winter pitched the first
five innings and left with the
score 1-1. Senior Kyle Ward
had a difficult two innings on
the mound, surrendering six
runs.
Hardee was the home team
and got on the board first in the
bottom of the first frame. Saun-
ders was hit by a pitch, stole
second and scored on a Don-
aldson hit up the middle. .
The Braves notched the game
in the top of the fifth, when
Kyle Vermilyea homered. Har-
dee regrouped and took a 3-1
advantage in the home half of
the fifth when senior Jake
Mayer singled, and rounded the
bases ahead of Donaldson, who
homered.
The roof fell in with the
pitching change in the sixth.
Lake Gibson got four runs in
the sixth and two more in the
seventh on a Cory Plasky
homer, and holding Hardee
scoreless in the interim.

Haines City 15, Hardee 1
The Wildcats were over-
whelmed in this game against
the 5A Haines City Hornets.
The lone score for the Wildcats
was in the home half of the
fourth inning, when Hewett sin-
gled, Mayer walked and
Dawson Crawford was hit by a
pitch. A sacrifice got Hewett
home.
Hardee 7, All Saints' 4
The Wildcats got back on the
winning track \,%ito the tourna-
ment final game against All
Saints' Academy of Winter
Haven. Two walks for All
Saints went for naught in the
top of the first inning. Hardee
picked up a pair of runs. Knight
and Donaldson both singled.

Kalan Royal pushed the first
two runners home.


All Saints split the score with
a run in the top of the second
when pitcher Greg Pitsikoulis
singled. Tyler Kelley was hit by
a pitch and Carson Fulmer sin-
gled to score the pitcher.
The game rocked along until
the bottom of the third, when
Hardee sent nine batters to the
plate. Knight was safe on an
error, Saunders singled and
Donaldson was safe on a field-
er's choice which took out
Knight. Terrell was hit by a
pitch, Kalan Royal singled and
Crawford was safe on an error
on his sacrifice. When Dylan
Farr singled, it kept runners
moving. An Evans fielder's
choice ended the inning, but
Hardee had a 7-1 lead.
There was no more Wildcat
scoring. All Saints got three
runs in the top of the fifth on a
double, single and Garrett
Doyle home run, making the
final score 7-4.

In his six innings, he struck out
eight and left four stranded.
Winter got the save with four
strikeouts among the eight bat-
ters he faced.

Hardee 11, Frostproof 10
This marathon home game
lasted nearly three hours as
each team took a turn with
momentum.
Frostproof had the first lead
with a third inning homer by
designated hitter Josh Baber.
The Bulldogs added another run
that inning when first baseman
Dustin Saiz singledbut was
erased by a Cody Wilson field-
er's choice and error on a Trey
Norris hit. It was 2-0.
The Bulldogs held Hardee at
bay and went on scoring, with
five more runs in the top of the
fourth on a combination of
walks, errors and hits. It was 7-
0.
Hardee got going in the home
half of the fourth, sending eight
batters to the plate and bringing
tive of them home. Terrell,
Crawford, Evans, Kramer
Royal and Mayer came home,
aided by a Knight RBI long fly
to the left fielder before the
final out. It was 7-5.
The Bulldogs added a run in
the fifth, when Jake Smith was
safe on an error and raced home
or Marcus Bobb sacrifice. It
was 8-5.
It was the home half of the
sixth when the Wildcats got
another flurry. Evans led off
with a hit to deep short and was
declared out on the long throw
to first which he appeared to
beat. Hewett dropped a fly in
short left field, Mayer dropped
one in right field and Knight


was safe on an error. A
Saunders walk pushed the first
runner home and a Donaldson
RBI sacrifice brought in the,
next. A Crawford walk brought
Saunders home with the tying.
run. It was 8-8.
Frostproof wouldn't give up
and plated two runs in the top of
the fourth on hits and errors.
Hardee wouldn't quit either.
Evans drew a walk. While
pinch hitter Ward was at bat,
Evans moved to second and
then third. Mayer walked to put
runners on the corners. A
Knight walk loaded the bases. A
Saunders sacrifice brought the
first runner home. Donaldson
walked to reload the bases and a
Terrell walk tied the game at
10-10. When Crawford walked,
it brought in the winning run.
Rewis called it a "gutsy win"
for Hardee. "Down seven in the
fourth inning, we could have
quit. Justin (Bromley, the pitch-
er) had to fight through adversi-
ty. W had 14 mental or physical
mistakes. I'm proud of their
effort. Every win is a good
win," said Rewis.
Bromley used 178 pitches in
the long seven innings, counter-
ing the effects of four Bulldog
pitches with determination. He
picked up the well-earned vic-
tory.
Mooney 1, Hardee 0
In contrast to the previous
evening's game, this one went
quickly as both pitchers were
sharp. Senior Steve Mathe was
on the mound for the Cougars
against Wildcat junior Winter.
It was a scoreless game until
the top of the sixth. Tyler
Chartrand was hit by a pitch
and went to second on a Jason
Sierra sacrifice. On a Bryan
VanVranken hit to left field,
Chartrand tried to make it
home. Freshman catcher Kram-
er Royal ably blocked the plate
to snag'the throw from left and '
get the out. VanVranken went
to second on the overthrow and
raced home on a Sean
McAdams double to left field.
Hardee was unable to score in
the sixth or seventh innings.
"It was a tough loss. Murrell
pitched an outstanding game,
our defense was good. Some
time you run into good pitching
on the other side. You have to
tip your hat to the other guy. We
made a good run at it and things,
didn't fall right. We played a lot
better tonight than last," said
Rewis.
Winter had two strikeouts,
one walk and one hit batter, but
was hurt by three errors. Mathe
had six strikeouts, two walks
and one error in the field behind
him.


Homogeneity makes for healthy milk but anemic friend-
ships. We need relationships that cross culturally
imposed lines to enlarge our hearts and expand our vis-
tas.

Wildcat Nine Splitting Games


A








March 3, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 5B


Week ending February 27, 2011
Weather Summary: Warm, dry conditions prevailed over most of
the State during the week of February 21 through 27. Most tem-
peratures in the major cities averaged three to ten degrees above
normal. Muggy, daytime highs were in the 80s. Pleasant evening
lows were in the 50s. Majority of the stations received no precipi-
tation for the week with minimal traces in a few localities. Areas
recording over half an inch of rain included St. Lucie and Jefferson
counties.

Field Crops: Favorable weather conditions permitted growers in
the Panhandle and northern Peninsula to till land for field crop
planting. Winter wheat was in good condition in Escambia and
Santa Rosa counties. Sugarcane harvesting was completed in the
Everglades region. Both topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies were
rated short to mostly adequate. A few pockets of very short and sur-
plus moisture supplies were reported.

Vegetables: Clear, dry conditions allowed field work to progress at
a normal pace. Growers in Washington County were busy with
field preparation and laid plastic for vegetables. Harvesting of egg-
plant was lower than normal with no shipments being moved. Light
supplies of sweet corn, endive, escarole, and tomatoes were mar-
keted. Increased market movement included snap beans, broccoli,
cabbage, celery, bell peppers, radishes, squash, and strawberries.

Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition ranged from very
poor to excellent Statewide with most in poor to fair condition.
Rising soil temperatures enhanced pasture growth but hay feeding
continued. The cattle condition ranged from very poor to excellent
with most in fair condition. In the Panhandle area, pasture condi-
tion ranged from very poor to excellent with most poor to fair. In
Washington County, cool season forages were limited by dry grow-
ing conditions. Bahia pastures greened up slightly. Hay and sup-
plements were fed to livestock. Hay supplies were dwindling. In
the northern areas, pasture condition ranged from poor to good.
Some permanent pastures were showing signs of green-up, but
nighttime temperatures were too low for significant growth. The
cattle condition was mostly good. In the central areas, pasture con-
dition ranged from poor to good with most in poor condition.
Unseasonably warm weather initiated pasture growth. In the south-
western areas, pasture condition ranged from very poor to excellent
with most in fair condition.

Citrus: Lows were in the 50s with highs in the 80s throughout
most of the citrus area. This week, five of the 25 FAWN stations in
the citrus area recorded some precipitation. Pierson reported the
most, with 0.31 inch of rainfall recorded. Overall, there were mod-
erate to severe drought conditions in most of the citrus area accord-
ing to the U.S. drought monitor, last updated on February 22th.
Indian River, Brevard, and part of St Lucie, Martin, and Palm
Beach counties experienced extreme drought conditions. Forty-
eight packinghouses and 18 processors had opened. Harvest of
early and midseason oranges and grapefruit continued, with pro-
cessing plants running early and midseason oranges. Heavy and
widespread citrus bloom was observed on trees of several varieties
throughout the citrus region, signaling the natural start of next sea-
son's crop. Grove activity included mowing, hedging and'topping,
brush removal, fertilizer application, and ditch cleaning.

Dice used in crap games in Las Vegas are manufactured
to a tolerance of 0.0002 inches, less than 1/17 the thick-
ness of a human hair.

invites you to join the award-winning SHINE team of
volunteers. This program helps elders make informed
decisions about Medicare, health insurance and
prescription drug plans.
SHINE volunteers provide individual counseling and
assistance to elders and their caregivers about Medicare,
Medicaid, Medicare plan choices, long-term care planning
and prescription discount drug programs. Volunteers may
also make educational presentations to community
groups and participate in local health fairs, senior fairs and
other outreach and educational events.
If you would like additional information about this exciting
opportunity and would like to become a SHINE volunteer
in Hillsborough, Hardee, Highlands, Manatee and Polk
Counties, please call the West Central Florida Area
Agency on Aging at 813-740-3888, ext. 5593.

CHURCH WORSHIP LEADER.
First United Methodist Church of Wauchula
First United Methodist Church of Wauchula is a congregation that
strives to "Know God, Love Others, and Serve the World." It is
through this mission statement that we see the need to reach a
larger demographic and wish to begin greater opportunities both
for worshipping God and growing in God. From this need we
have decided to hire a part time worship leader. We are seeking
through God's direction, an individual who would be able devel-
op some of the opportunities mentioned above as well as begin
to bring contemporary elements into our current worship service.
For further information in reference to this ministry opportu-
nity please contact the Church Office at 863-773-4267 or at

Brutus Takes The Gold


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Casey Brutus would make his
HHS swim coach proud.
The Hardee Senior High
School graduate, son of Rodger
and Jan Brutus of Wauchula.
took a gold medal and three sil-
vers at the Coastal Collegiate
Swimming Associate champi-
onship meet.
Brutus, now a senior at Garn-
er-We6b University in Boiling
Springs, N. C., was instrumen-
tal in setting new team records
in three of his four medal-win-
ning events.
He is one of a half dozen sen-
iors of the two dozen swimmers
for the Runnin' Bulldogs, who
have earned a 7-2 record this
spring. Teammates are from all
over the country. Of course,
North Carolina has the most
with eight, Georgia has five,
Florida four and others are from
Mississippi, Ohip, Alabama,
Tennessee, Indiana and Brazil.


The three others from Florida
are from Lake City. Fleming
Island and Fort Myers.
The 2011 Coastal Collegiate
Swimming Association champi-
onships were held Feb. 17-19
at the Gabrielson Natatorium on
the University of Georgia cam-
pus in Athens. Ga. Gardner-
Webb placed second overall
among the dozen teams there
and set 15 new team records.
Brutus was in one event on
Thursday, the 400 freestyle
relay, taking silver in a new
team time of 3:20:12. Joining
him were freshman Jordan Den-
mark of Raleigh, N.C., Steven
Caudill, a senior from Elkin,
N.C., and senior George Patin
from Lilburn, Ga.
On Friday, Brutus was in two
events. He joined junior Samuel
Woods of Clemson, S.C., fresh-
man Matt Anderson from Brazil
and sophomore Kevin Koenig
of West Chester, Ohio to take
silver in the 200 medley relay in


Stop by and see why so
many neighbors from
Hardee County buy from me.

a new school record of 1:31.53.
Brutus also took the team's
first individual event victory in
winning the 100 yard breast-
stroke in a new time of 55.89.
He eclipsed the record he set in
2010 of 55.93 by four hun-
dredths of a second.
Finally. on Saturday. Brutus
won an individual silver in the
200 breaststroke. His time of
2:04.13 was ahead of team-
mates Drew Ellwanger. a soph-
omore from Elton, Ga. at
2:04.75 and Collins Burchim. a
junior from Lilburn, Ga. in at
2:05.15.
Graduating in May, Brutus
looks ahead to several opportu-
nities, as a college coaching
assistant, involvement in sports
therapy or similar activities, or
getting a master's degree. His
achievement level is high, so
the sky's the limit for this
Wauchulan.

Michael A. Guido
Menter,Georgia


"Ouch," cried Mrs. Lofting while
sewing. "Every time I sewand try to
get this needle through coarse
cloth, I pierce my thumb."
Her sympathetic husband be-
came interested, and he fashioned
a bell-shaped covering. Jokingly,
he called it a "thumb-bell."
In just a little while women began
ordering his cap, which is now
called a "thimble," and is found in
almost every home.
When you're pierced, don't
pout, pray. Ask the Lord for
wisdom to turn your obstacle into
an opportunity.
The Bible says. "If any of you
lacks wisdom, he should ask God,
who gives generously to all."


Faith is the foundation of God's house; love and
forgiveness are important building blocks. God can
work through us to build and repair His kingdom...
when we shine with the love of God it is reflected
onto everyone we meet. With God's spirit dwelling
in us, we can construct and restore His kingdom on
earth'..one soul at a time. Invite a friend to church.
this week so that they can experience the peace,
hope and love that aresfound there.

Trip To D.C. Gives Teens A Monumental Perspective


By KAO LEE LOR
Special To The Herald-Advocate
A couple of months back, Key Club
offered an opportunity for its members
to visit Washington, D.C., during the
first few days of winter break. It was a
place that I had never visited but wished
tA, so I took the chance and went.
Now that I have returned home, I am
happy to announce that the trip was
amazing. On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10
being the highest, I will give it a 9.5 as
an overall enjoyment for its never-end-
ing entertainments, beautiful architec-
tures and scenery, and interesting infor-
mation.
There were a total of 15 people who
went on the trip, including the five
chaperones. We stayed in a hotel called
Grand Hyatt, which was stationed
above the Metro station that ran under-
ground. Everything was perfect in my
opinion, for we used the Metro train
more than once as our source of trans-
portation vehicle. It saved us from the
freezing and bitter cold weather of
Washington, D.C., that we all tried to
avoid as much as possible.
Since the hotel was also located on
the corner of H and 11th Street sur-
rounded by clothing stores and restau-
rants, finding entertainment during our
free time and looking for good but rea-
sonably priced foods for breakfast and
lunch were very convenient.
On our first day that we were in
Washington, D.C., we went on a tour
inside the Capitol, watched the senators
vote on the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"
law, and then visited the Aerospace
Museum as our ending source of
amusement for the night.
The Capitol was interesting with its
echoing hall, the Apotheoses of
Washington on the painted inside of its
dome-the height of the Capitol is taller
than the Statue of Liberty without its
base, and the center marking on the
floor under the dome which marked the
very center of the city itself. It was
amazing.
The Senate Chamber, however, was
different. The atmosphere inside the
room was more intense with all the
important people standing below us vot-
ing on a law that would affect the gov-
ernment. Nonetheless, it was definitely
a great experience to witness the sena-
tors vote, for I can say that I made his-
tory by being present at the time the
senators voted on the "Don't Ask, Don't
Tell" law.
We visited the Arlington Cemetery
and Holocaust Museum on our second
day.
The Arlington Museum was definite-
ly my favorite part of the tour. It left me
dumbfounded and in awe when I saw
the endless rows of white headstones
that went as far back as the eyes could
see. It made me think, and wonder too,
of how devastating the Civil War must
have been to have such a large acreage
of land formally owned by Robert E.
Lee later transformed into a cemetery.
The Holocaust Museum was also
another favorite part of my trip besides
the Arlington Cemetery. It was my first
time visiting a Holocaust Museum, so I
did not khow what to expect.
The Identification Card that I picked
out was about a girl named Renate
Guttmann. At the age of 7, she became
No. 4571 and had been used as an


experimental source when the Nazis
took over. Renate survived from perse-
cution when a German nurse that was
overseeing her hid her under her nurse's
skirt.
Reading a real-live person's story
and then seeing pictures of men and
women with numbers sewed onto their
clothes and even tattooed onto their
arms was devastating. Yet, I enjoyed my
time in the museum, for it was an inter-
esting tour that had moved me for the
second time that day.
Our third day in Washington, D.C.,
was the most exciting of all. We visited
the National Cathedral with its Gothic-
style architecture standing about 10 sto-
ries high. It is ranked as the sixth largest
cathedral in the nation and the only
cathedral that houses a moon rock.
After our morning tour of the cathe-
dral, we rode the city bus to the
Supreme Court for lunch and then
walked over to the Library of Congress.
The Library of Congress was an incred-
ible building housing more than 143
million books of various subjects. The
interior of the building was breathtak-
ing, too, with its vaulted ceilings and
sculpted putti.
My favorite part of the day, however,
was our night tour of the memorials. It
was one thing to visit the memorials
and see them during the day, but it was
another to see them at night. Everything
appeared to be more realistic and beau-
tiful with its illuminating lights, for the
darkness that surrounded us made every
memorial site more mysterious.
We visited the National Bank and the
White House first before making our
way toward the memorials. The World
War II Memorial was the first one that
we visited followed by the Jefferson
Memorial, the Korean War Memorial,
the Lincoln Memorial, the Vietnam War
Memorial, and last but not least, the
Iowa Jima Memorial.
My favorite ones were the Korean .
War Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial
and the Iowa Jima Memorial, for they
were the most impressive, alluring and
fascinating. I could not help but be
moved by the faces of both men and
women on the wall of the Korean War
Memorial whenever lights fell upon it.
Their features were so.deinite I could
see the wrinkles on one of the soldier's
forehead.
The Lincoln Memorial was some-
thing else. I did not feel remorse as
much as I felt amazement when I saw
his statue and stood before him as I
faced the Washington Monument across
the Potomac River. My thoughts at that
time were, "I am standing on the same
ground where many important people
had made their speech." Dr. Martin
Luther King, for one, had given his "I
Have a Dream" speech there.
The Iowa Jima Memorial was fasci-
nating in that I, felt as if I was watching
the raising of the flag as the bus went
around the base of the memorial. What
started off as a side view of the four
soldiers trying to hoist up the American
flag into a standing position before
them actually appeared as if they had
planted the flag on the ground after we
circled around to the front. The transfor-
mation was incredible.
The last day of our trip we spent
what little time we had left visiting the
museums of Natural History and

American History. We stayed there for
half the day before returning to the
hotel to retrieve our luggage, head over
to Ronald Reagan National Airport
where we boarded our flight, and then
return home to sunny Florida.
The trip was exciting, and I learned a
mass of information through experi-
ences than I would have done so in a
classroom. Facts, information, and his-
tory became more meaningful when I
felt as if I was playing a part in it. The
other members that went on the trip
expressed similar agreements.
Will Bennett, vice president of Key
Club, said, "I had a great time and


learned a lot."
Brandon Beatty, a member of the
club; agreed, "It was amazing and I
learned a lot of cool things about our
country."
"The trip was a lot of fun. It was
very cold but I enjoyed the experience.
I learned a lot while we were there,"
concluded Hannah Jacobs, president of
Key Club.
Thus, my advice to anyone who hap-
pens to read this article is, if the oppor-
tunity ever comes up for something as
great as what I had been through, then
take the chance and go. You will not
regret it.

JV Jump




Onto Field


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee junior varsity
Wildcats have played just two
games, but they were both put
in the winner's column.
A cancellation wrapped
around with twin victories have
the JV 'Cats looking good so
far.
This week, the young Wild-
cats play at Sebring on Thurs-
day in the first of a double-
header. The JV play at 4:30 and
the varsity about 7:30. Next
week, there are two games, at
Fort Meade on Thursday and
home for Lake Placid on March
11.
The season started Feb. 17 at
home against Frostproof, a 10-1
win for the junior 'Cats.
A walk, a sacrifice and pair of
strikeouts took care of the
Bulldogs in the top of the first.
Hardee got on the board when
Armando Alamia and Vince
Grimsley both walked and
came around to score on a
Garrett Albritton double.
It was a quiet second inning
for both squads. In the third,
Frostproof went three up, three
down, while Hardee plated four
runs. With one away, Grimsley
singled, Luke Palmer tripled,

The Wildcats got back in
business in the top of the sixth,
adding a pair of scores on a pair
of errors and a hit batter. Alamia
and Bolin crossed home plate to
make it 8-1.
Hardee finished off with a
pair of seventh inning tallies.
Hewett singled, Esquivel dou-
bled and Goodwyn singled.
Hewett and Esquivel made it all
the way home.

Vernon See, organizer of
Friends of Hardee Memorial
Hospital, next to a large bill-
board of the $200,000 goal to
help the hospital buy equip-
ment. See said he never had any
doubts about the generosity of


the people of Hardee County, as
$118,000 has already been col-
lected.

operating without an adminis-
trator since Jim Hetherington
resigned late last year. Ten
department supervisors have
been given raises to assume
some extra duties in liaison
with the commissioner in
charge. Several of the supervi-
sors are above grade of the
maximum pay scale, which
should be amended since it was
established in 1979..

veterans on a plaque on the

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Men know how to mine silver
and refine gold, to dig iron
from the earth and melt cop-
per from stone ... Men know
how to obtain food from the
surface of the earth.
Job 28:1-2, 5a (TLB)
FRIDAY
But though men can do all
these things, they don't know
where to find wisdom and
understanding. They not only
don't how to get it but, in fact,
it is not to be found among
the living.
Job 28:12-13 (TLB)
SATURDAY
It cannot be bought for gold
or silver . Wisdom is far
more valuable than gold and
glass. It cannot be bought for
jewels mounted in fine gold.
Job 28:15, 17 (TLB)
SUNDAY
Then where can we get it?
Where can it be found? For it
is hidden from the eyes of all
mankind.
Job 28:20, 21a (TLB)
MONDAY
And God surely knows
where it is found, for He
looks throughout the whole
earth, under all the heavens.
He makes the winds blow
and sets the boundaries of
the oceans.
Job 28:23-25 (TLB)
TUESDAY
God makes the laws of the
rain and a path for the light-
ning. He knows where wis-
dom is and declares it to all
who listen. He established it
and examined it thoroughly.
Job 28:26-27 (TLB)
WEDNESDAY
And this is what He says to
all mankind: Look, to fear
(respect) the Lord is true wis-
dom; to forsake evil is read
understanding.

By CRYSTAL BALDERAS
Special To The Herald-Advocate
I decided to interview my grandmoth-
er, Antonia Balderas. I sat down with
her and asked her some questions about
life as a child and what it was like.
Antonia was born on Feb. 22, 1949,
in Luxora, Ark. She had lived in four
states after she was born.
She came to Hardee County not
knowing how to speak English. She
attended Bowling Green Elementary. In
the first grade, which was her best year
in school, she learned to read and write
and speak in English. In the fifth grade,
she played softball.
Her favorite subject in school was

Local Residents in Amazement Yesterday

As Collectors Provide A

Stimulus Package to Sebring!


By KEN MCINTOSH
STAFF WRITER


ICCA will be placing ads in newspapers,
radio and running television spots this week
asking people to bring in any old silver and
gold coins made before 1965. Those that
bring in their coins will be able to speak
with collectors one on one and have their
coins looked at with an expert set of eyes.
With the help of these ICCA members, offers
will be made to those that have coins made
before 1965. Offers will be made based
on silver or gold content and the rarity of
the coins. All coins made before 1965 will
be examined and purchased including gold
coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of
nickels and pennies. Those that decide to
sell their coins will be paid on the spot.
If you are like a lot of people you might
have a few old coins or even a coffee
can full lying around. If you have ever
wondered what they are worth now might
be your chance to find out and even. sell
them if you choose. They could be worth
a lot according to the International Coin
Collectors Association also known as ICCA.
Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins
and currency for their collections. If it is
rare enough, one coin could be worth over
$100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin
collector and ICCA member. One ultra rare
dime, an 1 894S Barber, sold for a record
$1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007.
While that is .an extreme example, many
rare and valuable .coins are stashed away
in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the
country. The ICCA and its collector members
have organized a traveling event in search
of all types of coins and currency. Even
common coins can be worth a significant
amount due to the high price of silver and
gold, says Helms. 'Washington quarters
and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many
times their face value. Recent silver markets
have driven the price up on common coins
made of silver. Helms explains that all half
dollars, quarters and dimes made before
1965 contain 90% silver and are sought
after any time silver prices rise. Right now
it's a sellers market he said.





COINS
Any and all coins made before 1965, rare
coins, entire collections, Silver Dollars,
Half -Dollars, Quarters, Dimes, Half Dimes,
Nickels, Three Cent Pieces, Two Cent Pieces,
Cents, Large Cents, Half Cents and all others.
PAPER MONEY
All denominations made before 1934.

$1, Private Gold, Gold Bars, etc.

Buffalos, etc.


GOLD
TRADING AT ALL TIME HI
OW IS THE TIME TO CASH

JEWELRY
Diamond rings, bracelets, earrings, loose
diamonds, all gem stones, etc.
PLATINUM
Anything made of platinum.
SILVER

anything marked sterling.


The rarest coins these collectors are
looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2
1 /2 gold coins and any coin made before
1 850. These coins always bring big
premiums according to the ICCA. Silver
dollars are also very sought after nowadays.
Other types of items the ICCA will be
purchasing during this event include U.S.
currency, gold bullion, investment gold,
silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc.
Even foreign coins are sought after and will
be purchased.
Also at this event anyone can sell their
gold jewelry, dental gold or anything made
of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading
at over $1 100.00 per ounce near an all
time high. Bring anything you think might
be gold and the collectors will examine,
test and price it for free. If you decide to
sell, you will be paid on the spot it has
been an unknown fact that coin dealers
have always paid more for jewelry and
scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn
brokers.
So whether you have one coin you think
might be valuable or a large collection you
recently inherited, you can talk to these
collectors for free. If your lucky you may
have a rarity worth thousands. Either way
there is nothing to lose and it sounds like
fun!
