No Commission


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Lacking a city commission,
Wauchula is in danger of losing
some of its biggest projects to
inaction.
Illegal behavior which has
led to the ouster of five city
commissioners has delayed and
could negate some work the
commission had begun as much
as a year ago.
While the capable city em-
ployees continue to keep day-
to-day activities on an even
keel, nearly a dozen issues
await commission action,
which can't take place until
after the Wauchula elections on
May 10.

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two alleged marijuana grow
houses have been weeded out
by the Hardee County Drug
Task Force.
Search warrants served on
Feb. 24 at 1320 Mockingbird
Road in Wauchula and 6271 SR
64 E. in Zolfo Springs netted
marijuana, firearms and, ulti-
mately, three arrests.
Arrested on Friday was Ash-
ley Jean Nicole Burson, 25, of
the Mockingbird Road location.
She and husband Joseph Anth-
ony Burson, 31, jailed on Feb.
24, face multiple drug counts.
Also arrested was Bryan
Allen Reitnauer, 38, of the State
Road 64 location, who faces a
total of nine charges, including
one for alleged possession of a
short-barreled shotgun.
All three suspects have post-
ed bond and have been released
from the Hardee County Jail to
await trial.
According to sheriff's Maj.
Randy Dey, a spokesman for
the Drug Task Force-com-
prised of detectives with the
Sheriff's Office and the Wau-
chula Police Department-in-
telligence information led offi-
cers to suspect marijuana was
being grown anldsold at the two
locations.

can pay to see the teacher of their choice kiss a pig! Here, Principal Melanie Henderson smooches a swine during

days, with Chief John Scheel
and Sgt. Eddie Coronado lead-
ing the efforts.
As intelligence information
indicated some of the suspect
activity was occurring outside
city limits, the Hardee County
Drug Task Force joined in the
operation, he said. That Task
Force, he noted, includes detec-
tives with the Sheriff's Office
and the Wauchula Police
Department.
As police gathered informa-
tion and obtained search war-
rants, cases were made against
those suspected of selling either
cocaine, methamphetamine or
marijuana, and all within 1,000
feet of a park or a church,
Dowden said.
Arrest warrants for those
individuals were served in a
sweep conducted from about
11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday,
added Maj. Randy Dey of the
Drug Task Force.
In one instance, a suspect

Displays


Lewd Pics
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A driver who shocked pass-
ing motorists by allegedly dis-
playing lewd photographs out
the window of his truck led
authorities on a chase through
an orange grove before being
stopped.
Frank Eugene Rockwell, 64,
of 721 N. Brevard Ave., Ar-
cadia, was arrested by Florida
Highway Patrol Tpr. Jesse De-
Boom late Sunday afternoon in
a grove off Clyde Road and
West Main Street.
He was charged with lewd
and lascivious conduct, fleeing
to elude police, assault on a law
enforcement officer, three
counts possession of a weapon
or ammunition by a convicted
felon, driving while license sus-
pended, and attaching an incor-
rect tag.
Rockwell remained in the
Hardee County Jail this week
without bond.
According to an FHP report,
the incident began around 4
p.m. on Sunday when Rockwell
allegedly began showing lewd
photos out the window of his
truck as he passed motorists in
the area of U.S. 17 and REA
Road. _

A Friday morning accident at SR 64 and U.S. 17 in Zolfo Springs critically injured one man. According to the report
of Florida Highway Patrol Cpl. Albert Middleton, the incident happened about 11 a.m. when James A. Wison, 43, of
Zolfo Springs was driving his 2000 Chevrolet Blazer and its utility trailer on U.S. 17 in the left-turn lane and turned
into the path of a 2008 Harley Davidson motorcycle southbound on U.S. 17. The motorcycle hit the utility trailer.
Neither the Blazer driver nor his passenger, Loice R. Hart, 74, also of Zolfo Springs, was injured. The motorcycle driv-
er, Barry J. Mangels, 64, of Bradenton, and his passenger Colleen M. Conroy, 49, of Sarasota, were not wearing hel-
mets. She was unhurt, but he was airlifted to Tampa General Hospital, where he was still listed in critical condition
on Wednesday morning. Charges are pending.

The photo display was report-
ed to authorities, and DeBoom
spotted a white 1990 Chevrolet
pickup truck fitting the descrip-
tion on U.S. 17 at about Bay
Street in Wauchula.
DeBoom followed the suspi-
cious vehicle, trying to stop it at
Stenstrom Road and Florida
Avenue, the report said.
Rockwell allegedly took off,
leading the state trooper on a
chase at speeds of up to 65 mph.
Sheriff's Dep. Eric Ellis
joined the pursuit, but Rockwell
allegedly attempted to run the
deputy off the road, sheriff's
Maj. Randy Dey said.
The pursuit continued into an
orange grove at Clyde Road and
West Main Street. Rockwell


later told authorities he had
hoped to get the trooper "stuck
in the sand," Dey alleged.
Deputies set up a perimeter
which extended to First Baptist
Church of Wauchula, keeping
other motorists away from the
risky scene. Dey said Rockwell
was eventually stopped when
Dep. Nathan Woody deployed
"stop sticks," slowing the flee-
ing Rockwell and sending him
into an orange tree.
The entire chase lasted about
10 minutes, Dey estimated. No
one was injured.
Dey added that a search of
Rockwell's vehicle revealed
three rifles and a large amount
of cash, along with several lewd
photographs.

Dowden noted narcotics

"Although this particular
operation has concluded, nar-
cotics operations are going on
at all times," said Dowden.
"This one was just at a juncture
where it could be revealed and


the sweep could be made."
Dey of the Drug Task Force
concurred, "Periodic roundups
are made to let the bad guys
know we are out there, and we
are making cases and we- are
going to get them."
Dey also pointed out that
these are "dangerous times" for
law enforcement officers, and
that people who are with sus-
pects when authorities arrive
need to obey the orders of the
officers.
"For your safety and for our.
safety, if a law enforcement.
officer tells you to put your
hands on the car or to lay down,
do it," Dey advised. Officers, he'
promised, will sort out the situ-
ation in due time.

MAJOR HIT

PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
A collision on U.S. 17 north in Bowling Green on Sunday, Feb. 27, caused injuries to five people. Hardee County Fire-
Rescue staff and Bowling Green police officers handled the aftermath and traffic control. According to the'report of
Ofe. Daniel Arnold, the accident happened about 5:10 p.m. when driver Gabriel Lopez Delacruz, 34, was northbound
in a 2001 Ford Taurus four-door and attempted to turn left into Jones Street. He came into the path of a southbound
2005 GMC Yukon driven by Jessica Adams, 29. Although neither driver was injured two passengers in the Ford were
airlifted to Tampa General Hospital and three in the Yukon were taken to Florida Hospital-Wauchula. Delacruz was
charged with failure to yield to oncoming traffic. On Monday night of this week, Tampa General reported the crash
victim in stable condition.

Mobile Home Park. There, de-:
tectives allegedly found 18,
marijuana plants inside a walk-
in closet in the master bedroom,
he said.
Dey said the plants. were in
plastic pots positioned under
two 68-watt self-ballasted
lamps. He said particle board
walls on three sides were cov-
ered with reflective mylar insu-
lation to increase the effective-
ness of the lighting.
The marijuana plants
weighed in at 3.5 pounds, the
major alleged.
Further, he charged that a
computer room held 41 more
grams of marijuana, seeds, plas-
tic bags for packaging, a grinder
and a scale. The kitchen count-
er, too, held loose marijuana,
Dey said.
Dey noted the couple have
two children, 9 and 5, and
alleged the boy and girl were
exposed to the grow operation
going on inside their home.
The second search warrant
took the Drug Task Force to the
State Road 64 East home of
Reitnauer.
There, Dey alleged, detec-
tives found 12 marijuana plants
in a bedroom, positioned in the
center of the room and under a
sodium-vapor light. Eight more
plants were in a closet, he
charged.
The living room of the home
allegedly revealed 66 more
grams of the narcotic, and
kitchen cabinets held seeds,
Dey said.
Also found were five
firearms, including a 12-gauge
shotgun with its barrel short-
ened to 17-1/2 inches, a viola-
tion of state law.
Scales, rolling papers and
packaging materials also were
found, Dey alleged.

consequences of his own
folly.

make a decision on the bids
until June, giving barely three
months to work out details for
the switchover from one bulk
supplier to another. Electric
revenue basically funds its pro-
grams and others, while keep-
ing supply and demand as eco-
nomical as possible. A delay in
accomplishing this could result
in higher electric bills.
AIRPORT LAND
PURCHASE
Wauchula Municipal Airport
is under a Homeland Security
mandate to increase the flight
path, create additional storm
water ponds and install a steel
perimeter fence around the air-
port property. It would require
purchasing property adjacent to
the present eastern boundary.
The city does not have funds for
this and is dependent on an
FAA (Federal Aviation Admin-
istration) grant and the Florida
Department of Transportation
aviation funding to accomplish
the task.
During early discussions,
nearby residents have attended
commission meetings and ex-
pressed concerns about impacts
on their ingress/egress and util-
ity easements, as well as their
water canal and wells. The
commission assured them these
matters would be settled during
negotiations, appraisals, engi-
neering and purchase of a por-
tion of their properties.
Last handled in a Jan. 10
meeting, ongoing actions on the
land purchases and stormwater
ponds depends on the FAA and
F-DOT grants, including a
waiver of $100,000 matching
requirements, which the com-
mission is unable to accept until
at least June. The delay could
adversely impact the availabili-
ty and waiver for these grants.

Citrus Growers Hold .........


Annual
The Peace River Valley
Citrus Growers Association
held its 18th annual meeting on
Thursday evening.
A crowd of 300 packed the
Hardee County Agri-Civic
Center to conduct business and
be entertained.
Dr. Dennis Swanberg was the
keynote speaker. The Austin,
Texas, born pastor-turned-
comedian has won the hearts of
audiences across the country.
Swanberg takes Barney Fife
and over 20 other lovable
impersonations, together with
his side-splitting stories of
growing up, families, and the
funny side of church, to over
250,000 people every year.
His audiences range from
churches looking for fresh and
new inspiration to marriage
enrichment seminars, city-wide
concerts, business-related
events and corporate gather-
ings.
The citrus growers conducted
a small amount.of business dur-
ing the meeting, making minor
changes to their operational
bylaws, creating term limits for
their Board of Directors. Pre-
viously, directors served with-
out term limits, but due to
grower interest in serving, di-
rectors will now be limited to
four consecutive years. The
change was made to allow more
input from a variety of growers.
The 2011 directors and officers
were introduced to the member-
ship. Serving this year are Jus-
tin Sorrells of Sorrells Citrus
Inc., president; Lenora Brewer,
a Desoto County grower as vice
president; and Howard "Row-
dy" Bateman of Bright Hour
Ranch and Ken Sanders, a
Hardee County Realtor at Joe L.


Meeting
Davis Real Estate and grower,
rounding out the association's
Executive Committee.
These four Executive Com-
mittee members will serve with
Dr. Larry Garrett of Garret
Ranch Partnership; V. C. Hol-
lingsworth III of VCH Hold-
ings; Callon "Buddy" Keen of
Keen Farm and Grove Service;
Ben Norris of Robert Norris
Inc.; Mike Prescott, Hardee
County grower and Monsanto
representative; Hugh Taylor of
A.D. Taylor Grove in Myakka
City; and Eugene H. "Trey"
Turner of Eugene H. Turner
Family Partnership in Arcadia.
As a regional citrus organiza-
tion, Peace River 'Valley Citrus
Growers Association supports
youth agricultural education in
a variety of ways. One way it
supports this mission each year
is by inviting the Lakewood
Ranch Future Farmers of
America club from Lakewood
Ranch High School in Brad-
enton to cater this annual event.
The students and their alumni
have been preparing the meal
for the growers for 16 years and
have become an annual favorite
with the local growers. Raising
the meat and growing some of
the other meal ingredients, the
students create the meal from
months of production labor.
The association was honored
to have several regional digni-
taries present, to include state
representatives Ben Albritton,
Jim Boyd, Denise Grimsely and
Ray Pilon along with many
county commissioners, county
administrators and newly
crowned local royalty, Miss
Hardee County Kara Norris.
She is the daughter of PRVCGA
director Ben Norris.

Lost Dog Reunited With Family


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Blake and Samantha Perry
were heartbroken when their
dog escaped from its fenced-in
yard and decided to wander the
streets of Wauchula.
Merlin, the seven-year-old
basset hound, went missing
from the house February 28
when the couple was having a
pizza delivered and the gate
was left open for a minute or so.
They quickly noticed Merlin
was gone and began looking for
him immediately and into the
night.
His keen nose led him out of
sight and apparently out of the
area.
They searched in shifts
before and after work to no
avail.
The couple does not have any
children and considers Merlin
their son.
They were so upset the
Perrys bought a full-page ad in
The Herald-Advocate, posted
flyers around the city, offered a
reward and went door to door
asking about possible sightings


of Merlin.
"The people were genuinely
concerned and felt my pain,"
Samantha said. "Lots of people
offered to help us find him."
She said one boy even
walked around town and looked
for Merlin.
To make matters worse, the
dog takes medication for a thy-
roid problem and skin allergies
and they feared what would
happen if he wasn't found soon.
After a long three days, they
got a call from someone who
had him.
The dog ended up on Martin
Luther King Jr. Boulevard
about two or three miles from
the couple's home in Wauchula.
After a joyous reunion, Mer-
lin was off to the vet to make
sure he was healthy and in good
shape after his tour around
Wauchula.
Blake said Merlin was so
exhausted from the ordeal he
slept for two days after getting
back home.
Now he is back to his old self
and the couple can finally stop
worrying about their precious


pet.
One positive note came out
of losing Merlin.
The couple moved to Wau-
chula two years ago from Avon
Park and had not gotten a
chance to meet many people in
the community.
While going door to door
they got to know some really
nice people.
After meeting in college
where they both studied to be
zoo technicians, Blake and Sa-
mantha were married three
years ago.
Blake has raised Merlin since
he was an eight-week-old pup-
py fresh from Georgia.
Blake is employed by the
Hardee Animal Refuge at
Pioneer Park, and Samantha
works for the Center for Great
Apes east of Wauchula.
Since Merlin's return home,
Blake has been working to rein-
force the fence and gates so this
hound cannot leave and put his
loving owners through the
worry and anguish of losing
him again.


Merlin is home and happy to be harassing a squirrel sitting overhead in a tree.

To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each
other as we always were. We know each other's hearts, We live outside the touch of
time. --Clara Ortega

A peaceful world depends upon better understanding and respect for each other in a
spirit of brotherhood and adherence to ethical principles. If these are lost, civilization
gradually disappears. Herman W. Steinkraus

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Janice Wheeler said Tuesday she is hopeful the Hardee
Livestock Market can reopen Monday, April 4. More details pub-
Ushed next week.
Local attorney Ken Evers is drawing up articles of incorpora-
tion for Hardee County Livestock Market. She is talking with
county economic development director Bill Lambert for some
assistance.
She will have a table Saturday at the grand opening of Hardee
Ranch Supply in Wauchula.
Since the livestock market closed at the end of December, the
ripple effect was felt at Hardee Ranch Supply, Tractor Supply and


Heartland Growers Supply, she said. Wheeler is seeking to sell
shares of the new company for $1,000, hoping to raise $300,000 to
get the new business open.
A favorable five-year lease on the property has been arranged
that would cover the taxes and insurance. The property owner is
Wheeler Farms. If the property receives a purchase offer, the new
company would have the first right to purchase. She said the com-
pany needs to sell 450 head of cattle a week to break even.
Wheeler said she will be able to get the cattle buyers back.
Hardee County needs some good news, and the likely reopen-
ing of our cattle auction market is good news. Hopefully our local
cattle industry will help support this worthwhile project.

The new Hardee Ranch Supply on U.S. 17 south of Wauchula
will have its grand opening on Saturday. You can register by 2:30
p.m. for a drawing for a new John Deere Gator. You have to be
present at the 3 p.m. drawing to win.
The company has moved into a new expanded store just south
of its old one and will mark its 27th year in September.

Florida's unemployment rate comes with a cost, besides peo-
ple who do not have jobs. The Lakeland Ledger recently reported
Florida owes the federal government $2 billion, with $64 million
interest, for the underfunded jobless fund. Florida's unemployment
compensation payments are about $275 a week.
About 1.1 million Floridians are unemployed. The state has
about 500,000 public workers contributing to the state pension
fund. There are about 319,000 retirees drawing a pension from the
fund. The'Florida pension fund is better off than many states but is
still underfunded by about 10 percent.

Ed and Annie Farmer of Bowling Green bought their 10 acres
and a house on Dixiana Avenue in 1983 for $50,000. He planted an
orange grove which today is non-productive due to freezes.
Last year he bought 320 young orange trees and set them out
to start rehabbing his grove. All but 15 survived this winter's
freezes. Ed, 79, wants to buy another 300 young trees at $5 each
and pay $500 to have them planted. That would cost $2,000 that he
does not have.
The good young trees cost $8 each. The "crooked bent" trees
cost $5.
Ed used to have a 300-cow dairy in Hillsborough County
before selling out "too cheap at $6,000 an acre. I found out later
land was worth $9,000 an acre."
Farmer said he is allergic to eating oranges or drinking orange
juice, saying it gives him mouth sores. When he was in the dairy
business, two of their three children were allergic to cow's milk.
One child was raised with goat milk, the other with soy milk.
The weather was too rainy when Ed was in the dairy business
and too dry since he has tried the citrus grove.
The couple, which have quite a sense of humor, live on his
$1,100 and her $400 monthly Social Security pensions.
Ed called to report gasoline on Friday in Wauchula was $3.53
a gallon and $3.33 in Avon Park. He said usually gas in Avon Park
is a little higher than in Wauchula.
"With the price of gas we can't afford to drive to our church
the last two weeks." They attend House of Fellowship west of
Myakka City, a 50-minute drive. Their 2002 Mercury gets 17 miles
per gallon.

"Coach" Dunning Terrell of Wauchula passed away Feb. 24.
Rev. Jim Davis and Rev. Alan Permenter officiated at his Feb. 27
funeral at First Baptist Church of Wauchula.
Davis spelled out the letters in coach to describe him. "C" was
the Christian example he set, singing in the choir for 55 years and
teaching a men's Sunday School class for many years.
"0" is for his optimism. He loved people, looked for the good
in them, and usually was smiling.
"A" is for athletics. He coached basketball, football and base-


ball. He loved fishing, hunting and tennis and was a Florida Gator
fan.
"C" is for competitor. He was determined to win. In tennis
doubles he called the balls as he saw them, usually in his favor.
"H" is for honorable. He was married to his wife Nita for 59
years., served in the Navy, and was a wonderful employee and
friend. "Precious in the eyes of the Lord is the death of his Saints."
Nephew John Terrell said Dunning was an uncle, coach, friend
and role model.
His motto as HHS head basketball coach was "We will play
anybody, any time, anywhere with the sincere intentions of defeat-
ing them."
He was a school teacher, a Sunday School teacher and the epit-
ome of consistency. He loved his family, church and community,
and had a competitive nature. Dunning was a great coach in
Louisiana and Florida and influenced a lot of people.
His favorite bible passage was March 12:30,31.
'And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all they heart, and
with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength:
this is the first commandment.
3And second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love they neigh-
bor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than
these.
His nephew said Dunning bought Cale Albritton a pair of ten-
nis shoes so he could play basketball. He influenced Rocky
Kitchens at an early age to play on his basketball team. The nephew
also mentioned former athletes Al Whitehead and Skipper Gause,
the best player on the court.
Terrell's teams won several conference championships in bas-
ketball and a conference title in his short stint as head baseball
coach at HHS.
In 1959 HHS won the Southeast Florida Conference baseball
title with a 6-4 nine-inning win over Dade City. In the last inning
Dade City intentionally walked Dewey Terrell with Pat Counts on
first base with a single. That brought up Cale Albritton. Head coach
Dunning Terrell told Cale before his at-bat, "That would just
embarrass me." Cale responded with a winning homerun.
Named to the 1959 all conference baseball team- for Hardee
were catcher Earl Crawley, shortstop Pat Counts, outfielders
Frankie Albritton arid Wendell Cotton, and pitcher/firstbaseman
Dewey Terrell.
Dunning attended University of Miami and Notre Dame,
earned a BS degree from Louisiana Tech and a master's degree
from LSU.
He coached a half dozen years in Louisiana, was head basket-
ball coach at HHS for 11 years, assistant football coach 11 years at
HHS and was HHS head baseball coach for a year or two. In 1966
he went to South Florida Community College as baseball and bas-
ketball coach for eight years. He taught health and PE at SFCC for
another 12 years, retiring about 1986.
He was one of 10 brothers and sisters-seven boys and three
girls-and the last survivor. His wife Nita and son Mike preceded
him in death. Their daughter Judy Terrell took care of her parents
in their later years.

The HHS Classes of 1950s and 1960s are planning a reunion
Oct. 28-30 in Wauchula. Co-chairs are Jerold Knight and Sue
Bryan Jackson.

Wauchula native State Rep. Denise Grimsley, who lives in
Lake Placid, is reaching term limits of eight years and in 2012 will
;run for the Florida Senate. The seat is held by State Sen. J.D.
Alexander who will be term-limited next year.
Grimsley wants to work to make positive and heartfelt contri-
butions to improving the quality of life for Floridians and to
strengthen the economy. Both are Republicans.
It is said that Picasso could draw before he could walk,
and his first word was the Spanish word for pencil.

Ramirez Army Champ, Beats Marine


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Bowling Green lightweight
Toribio "Tori" Ramirez is
accomplishing his goal, "to rep-
resent my family and the
Army."
He is the son of Toribio
Ramirez and Geneva Roman,
both of Bowling Green.
The 23-year-old Army wheel-
ed vehicle mechanic, with a 15-
month stint in Afghanistan be-
hind him, had an exciting Feb-
ruary, which he hopes will lead
him to the 2010 Olympics try-
outs on London.
His path there will be an
uphill climb for the relative
international newcomer. Last
year, he lost the Army gold
medal to more experienced
boxer, Sgt. Qujan Baptiste out
of Fort Carson, Colo. This year,
in the Army boxing champi-
onships at Fort Huachuca,
Ariz., Sgt. Ramirez, fighting
out of Fort Stewart, Ga., would
not give in to the older pugilist.
In the 132-pound men's
finals, the twosome went at


each other furiously. Baptiste
appeared to have the early
advantage with a flurry of
punches that earned him a 2-1
advantage after the first round.
The Ramirez corner changed
strategy to get Ramirez the
chance to use his strong coun-
terpunch. He followed the
advice and outpointed Baptiste
to earn the gold medal and the
right to represent the Army in
this year's competitions for All-
Army head coach Basheer
Abdullah.
Next on tap was the All-
Armed Forces Boxing competi-
tions at Lackland Air Force
Base in Texas on Feb. 18.
Although the Army had been
dominant for several years, the
2011 Marine contingent boast-
ed that the Devil Dogs would
unseat the Army. Navy and Air
Force boxers declared the same.
Ramirez was scheduled to
fight Marine Lance Cpl. Tom-
my Roque, of Camp Lejeune,
N.C., ranked fourth in the
nation.
Bouts were three, three-


minute rounds with a one-
minute break between rounds.
Points are earned only by land-
ing punches cleanly and with
sufficient force on the oppo-
nent's head or body. They wear
gloves with a white stripe
across the knuckle and only
punches with connect with this
part of the glove count. In this
competition, there were 35
competitors from bases around
the world, each hoping to be the
top fighter in the 10 male and
four female weight divisions.
Ramirez, a 2005 Hardee High
School graduate now with the
3rd Battalion, 3rd Infantry Di-
vision, says he has been boxing
since he was nine years old and
has been looking for this oppor-
tunity "my entire life."
At Lackland, Ramirez again
trailed early, behind by six
points in the final round. He ral-
lied with several brutal combos
to outpoint Rogue and claim the
Armed Forces lightweight gold
medal, helping his All-Army
team win the championships for
the 20th year in a row.


Coming up are the 2011
Golden Gloves championships
in San Antonio, Tex., the 5th


Conseil International du Sport
Militaire World Military Games
in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, lead-


ing up to the Summer Olympic
trials in London in 2012.

Track Teams Going Swell


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Although results are only in
from two of four meets, the
Hardee tracksters are shining.
They have produced more
than a half dozen first-place fin-
ishes individually, with senior

jump, Ancelmo second in the
pole vault, Beatty second in the
triple jump and Dillon Skitka

For the boys, there were first-

Both the boys and girls teams
were a solid second behind
Frostproof, which won both
divisions. Avon Park was third
and Lake Placid fourth in both
divisions.
In the girls discus, it was a
Hardee one-two, with Louis
close behind Vargas in the dis-
tance. Murillo placed second

social life. We must consider that we were born for the good of the whole.

'Cats Topple Tornadoes 10-0


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcart nine
ended last week on a high note,
shutting out the Sarasota Book-
er Tornadoes 10-0 on Friday
night.
The win offset the Thursday
massacre at Sebring, where one
bad inning resulted in a 10-1
loss.
This week, the Wildcats have
a pair of games. They host Fort
Meade today (Thursday) and
play at DeSoto tomorrow night.
Next week's only game is
Friday night at home in a dou-
ble-header against Sebring. The
JVs play at 4:30 and the: varsi-
ties about 7:30.
The 'Cats will have a- pair of
road games early in Spring
Break week, playing at Avon
Park on March 21 and at
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney on
March 22.
Sebring 10, Hardee 1
Against Sebring, junior.
Murrell Winter had three-plus
successful innings on the
mound for the Wildcats.
A Scott Donaldson single was
all for Hardee batters in the top
of the first. The Sebting batters
also stranded one batter.
Hardee got on the scorebook
first. With one away, Kalan
Royal and Deonte Evans had
back-to-back walks. A Dalton
Hewett hit brought Kalan Royal
home and a Kramer Royal sac-
rifice moved Evans to third
where he was stranded. In the
bottom of the third Sebring
knotted the game at 1-all with
an error allowing the runner to
cross home plate.
A Hewett double left him on
base in the top of the fourth and
Sebring also left one batter
aboard.
In the top of the fifth, six
Sebring runners crossed home
platt as a dozen came up to bat.
Six hits, a fielder's choice al-
lowed runners to keep going,
although a double play stopped
it abruptly.
Another trio of Blue Streak
tallies went on the board in the
home half of the sixth. Hardee
could not respond and went


down to the 10-1 defeat.
Donaldson was two-of-three for
the evening.
Hardee 10, Booker 0
It was a totally different effort.
on Friday night at home. Senior
hurler Kyle Ward was in control
for the five innings it took for
the mercy rule shutout.
"It was a good effort, espe-
cially after the disappointing
loss last night. They came out
tonight with energy. We
changed the batting order a lit-
tle. It was great to see Kyle
pitch so well. He has worked
hard with pitching coach Ryn
Heine.
"The boys played well. You
never know how they will
respond after a game like last
night, where we really only had
one bad inning," said Head
Coach Steve Rewis.
Ward gave up a single in the
first inning, but left that batter,
Danny Ricardo, stranded.
Hardee picked up a run in the
first inning. It looked as if
Evans would get it Hardee start-
ed quickly, but his hit to right
center field was grabbed by a
running Ricardo with a long
reach. With two down, Don-
aldson flew one to right center
field and slid into second under
the relay tag. A Wintz Terrell
single to left field' brought
Donaldson racing home. It was
1-0.
It was three up, three down
for Booker in the top of the sec-
ond. Hardee plated five runs. A
Lincoln Saunders high fly
dropped in right field and he
ended up at third base. Ward's
sacrifice brought Saunders

home. Catcher Dylan Farr drew
a walk and Kalan Royal went in
as courtesy runner, stole second
and went to third on a Jake
Mayer bunt sacrifice.
An Evans walk put runners
on the corners. A Hewett hit up
the middle plated Royal and a
Donaldson hit past third,
brought Evans home. Terrell
was hit by a pitch. Justin
Knight's hit to deep left field
brought Hewett and Donaldson
home and made the score 6-0.
Leaving one Tornado on the
base paths in the top *of the
third, the Wildcats picked up
another tally in the home half of
the inning. Ward walked and
courtesy runner Mikey. Retana
took first in his place. A pickoff
attempt went awry and Retana
raced all the way to home plate
while they were retrieving the
errant ball. It was 7-0.
Booker put in a new pitcher
for the bottom of the fourth and
Hardee went scoreless. After
Ward struck out' all three
Booker batters in the top of the
fifth; Hardee went back to
work.
Ward drew a ward. Farr was
out on a groundout to first,
Ward was safe on second.
When Mayer was hit by a pitch,
it was two aboard. Retana bat-
ted for Evans and singled to left
to load the bases. Kris Johnson
drew a walk, bringing in one
run. Kalan Royal singled up the
middle to score another run and
leave the bases still loaded.
With Palmer at bat, a passed
ball allowed Mayer to 'race
home with the 10 run, ending
the game on the 10-run rule.

PHILIP T. BARTON
Navy Seaman Apprentice
Phillip T. Barton recently com-
pleted U.S. Navy basic training
at Recruit Training Command,
Great Lakes, I11.
The seaman, a 2010 Hardee
Senior High School graduate, is
the son of Susan E. and Charles
A. "Bart" Barton of Wauchula.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Barton completed a vari-
ety of training, which included
classroom study and practical
instruction on naval customs,
first aid, firefighting, water
safety and survival, and ship-
board and aircraft safety. An
emphasis was also placed on
physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations." This
exercise gives recruits the skills
and confidence they need to
succeed in the fleet.
"Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior
attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and endurance
in each recruit through the prac-
tical application of basic Navy
skills and the core values of
;Honor, Courage and Commit-
ment.
Its distinctly "Navy" flavor
was designed to take into
account what it means to be a
Sailor.

Greetings from Fort Green!
There is an old Georgia say-
ing that if March comes in like
a lion it will go out like a lamb,
so it must be going to get real
nice around the end of March.
I truly am tired of the wind
blowing 90 miles an hour, and it
seems like it has the entire year!
The two most exciting things
that happen in Hardee County
have come and gone! The fair is
always a fun week and then
Pioneer Park is right on its heels
and is always a good time.
There are so many people
who tell me they never go!
Usually you see friends that you
don't see as often as you would
like to. This year I saw Sandy
Hash and Marilyn Petersen and
her mother, Marion Kiella. Of
course you see lots of people,
but I worked with both Sandy
and Marilyn.
Further down the aisle were
Henrietta Benson and her
daughter, Chiquita. Henrietta
was my assistant 4-H leader
way back in the days of the club
in Bowling Green Elementary.
It is always great to see old
friends.
I do believe the grounds cov-
ered were much smaller this
year than in years past. To me, it
really was more fun when it
first began. More local people
took their crafts and it was more
a time of visiting with neigh-
bors, but getting bigger is called
progress!
The ones in the Class of '83
had a good class reunion this


past weekend, according to
Chrysta Chancey. Reunions are
fun, and the classes of the '50s
and '60s are planning a big one
the weekend of Oct. 28-29.
Margaret Hodges, who lives in
New York, called last week
about it and Arden Rawls men-
tioned it. Margaret is a sweet
person and always mentions
reading the Herald and keeping
up with what goes on in her
hometown.
Sherman is the lucky one
who is from the Class of '57, as
I graduated from Valdosta, Ga.
Once his class had a reunion of
only his class, and Barbara
Casey and I went as the hunting
woods claimed Sherman's at-
tention. I can attest that was a
good class, and you will have
lots of fun. The sad thing about
class reunions is the ones who
live in their hometown are usu-
ally the ones who do not attend!
Sherman and I went to Lake-
land last Friday morning to doc-
tors, and on the way home
stopped for dinner. At the table
next to us were residents from
Bowling Green. It turned out
they were a Mr. John DeYoung
and cousin, Mrs. Manakey. I am
spelling her name the way it
sounds!
In the gist of things, she
asked about Amy Brpwn and
said her daughter went to
school with her and she used to
read the "Fort Green News"
when Amy wrote it. Now she is
glad when I mention Amy, as it
lets her know how she and


Delia
I know these years have passed us by
But affection does not know time
The feelings that lived for you and I
Live again within this rhyme:
I recall the moments that we shared
When we'd drive along back roads;,
I see the wind tesase your black hair
I hear your laugh explode!
From the sweetest smile ever known
And the sparkle from your eyes
Within my heart I feel you've grown
my affection never dies.
I see this rock and recall a day
We were gathering them while walking;
Your angelic voice, and soft spoken way
How I thrilled to hear you talking!
It never mattered what we discussed
Only that we were there.
I'll never forget the time of "us"
Or these moments that we shared.
Dear Delia, please believe this
Though we are not together:
You, I'll always dearly miss,
And wish you joy forever!

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
The Lord is compassionate
and gracious, slow to anger,
abounding in love . He
does not treat us as our sins
deserve . As far as the
east is from the west, so far
has He removed our trans-
gressions from us.
Psalm 10:8,10a, 12 (NIV)

FRIDAY
Serve with single-minded-
ness out of reverence for the
Lord God. Whatever you are
doing, put your whole heart
into it, as if you were doing
for the Lord and not for men.
Colossians 4:22b-23 (NEB)

SATURDAY
Then the Lord spoke this
word to Jeremiah, "I am the
Lord, the God. of every per-
son on earth. Nothing is
impossible for Me."
Jeremiah 32:26 (NCV)

SUNDAY
In face of this, what is there
left to say? If God is for us,
who can be against us?..
There is nothing else in
God's whole world that has
any power to separate us
from the love of God in Christ
Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:31,39 (PME)

MONDAY
On a good day, enjoy your-
self; on a bad day, examine
your conscience. God ar-
ranges for both kinds of days
so that we won't take any-
thing for granted.
Proverbs 7:14 (ME)

TUESDAY
As you live this new life
under Christ, we pray that
you will be strengthened
from God's boundless re-
sources, so that you will find
yourself able to pass through
each experience and endure
it with joy.
Colossians 1: 11 (Phillips)

WEDNESDAY
A good reputation is more
valuable than the most
expensive perfume . .
Tackle every task that comes
along, if you fear (respect)
God, you can expect His
blessing.
Ecclesiastes 7:1, 18 (TLB)

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

75 YEARS AGO
A new Sinclair filling station,
one of the most modern and
prettiest stations of its type, will
open tomorrow morning on
East Main Street and the corner
of Third Avenue. It is under the
management of Hubert Albrit-
ton, son of Mr. & Mrs. Hosea
Albritton, who live north of this
city. Drop in at the station and
help choose a name for it.

The Board of County Com-
missioners has received a war-
rant from state comptroller J.M.
Lee, for $2,500 for the county's
share of race track funds. The
clerk was instructed to pay
Wauchula State Bank $1,500
and $1,000 was given to the
School Board as a donation.
The board also received a war-
rant for $3,665.45 from state
treasurer W.V. Knott as one-half
the Kanner gas tax. It will be
used for road maintenance,
mother's pensions, agriculture
and general revenue.

Miss Ruth Corey Aleshire,
staff supervisor of the local
Social Welfare Office, an-
nounced yesterday that training
classes for district welfare
workers have been proposed.
The exact location of these
classes will be announced
shortly.

Emerson Clavel has a script
ad for his North Fifth Avenue
business. "Don't come see us.
Our secont-handed used car
prices are too low. We are not
fair to the second handed car
bizneis." He has a Model AA
truck for $125, a 1932
Chevrolet Coupe for $245 and a
1933 Willys Sedan airplane
type getting 30 miles per gallon
for $255.

50 YEARS AGO
Coach Dunning Terrell and
his Wildcats were polishing
their trophy after winning the
Class A, Group 7 Champion-
ship. They trimmed Bartow 60-
50 in the tournament final here
Saturday night, after defeating
Kathleen 72-58 to get to the
finals. Bill Whitehead, Jim
Moseley and Lance Lanier led
the Wildcat attack.

A zoning commission has
been set up in Bowling Green, a
building inspector appointed
and, effective immediately, all
residents must obtain a permit
before starting any new con-
struction or remodeling. A pro--
fessional builder, Thomas Stud-
still, has been named inspector.

The county's high school has
been accredited again this year
by the Southern Association of
Colleges and Secondary
Schools, but may not be by next
year if certain improvements
aren't made. The deficiencies
include one pupil-period over-
load, 28 excess pupil-teacher
ratios, two teachers without free
periods and two teachers teach-
ing out of their fields.

Walker's Grocery ads this
week include chuck roast for 49


cents a pound, mayonnaise 19
cents a quart, smoked bacon 39
cents a pound, canned milk
three cans for 42 cents and
brisket stew meat four pounds
for $1.
25 YEARS AGO
In January, Hardee County
had the highest unemployment
rate in the state at 12.6 percent,
said Joe L. Davis Jr., chairman
of the Hardee County Industrial
Development Authority at a
Tuesday night meeting of the
Bowling Green City Commis-
sion. Davis asked the commis-
sion's support in the county's
quest to achieve "blue chip"
status with the Florida Depart-
ment of Commerce. Bill Crews
is the overall county chairman
of the "blue chip" certification
drive.

The city of Bowling Green
will celebrate its 100th year this
fall with a big centennial cele-
bration. Former mayor Jerold
Knight is overall chairman of
the festivities, which will
include a parade. In 1985, the
city had a population of 2,380,
compared to 3,294 for Wau-
chula and 1,588 for Zolfo
Springs.

The Hardee County Cattle-
men's Association if offering a
cash reward for information
leading to the arrest and convic-
tion of anyone convicted of cut-
ting pasture fences. President
Maurice Henderson and mem-
ber Pershing Platt announced
the reward in response to a
series of fence cuttings that
have victimized ranch owners
recently. No cattle have been
stolen and traffic accidents so
far have been avoided.

Red Henderson's Tire Center
on North Sixth Avenue offers
steel-belt radials from $36.95 to
$52.95, depending on the size.
It includes mounting and bal-
ancing. Delco batteries are as
low as $38.95 and an oil change
special is $13.95.

10 YEARS AGO
Controversial proposed water
and sewer rate increases are up
for public hearing on Monday
evening. The rate increases are
designed to meet state and fed-
eral grant requirements that the
water/sewer system be fully
funded by its fees. For many
years, it has used electrical util-
ity and tax revenues to offset
shortfalls. The new rates are set
on the size of the service meter
and line, from ?-inch to four-
inch.

Along with alcohol ordi-
nances being approved in the
municipalities and county is an
ordinance prohibiting adult live
entertainment in places which
are approved to sell liquor.
"Alcohol and nudity don't mix,'
said county and municipal au-
thorities.

Management of the firing
range and clamping down on
loitering and littering were
added to the many jobs of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
recently. The range is on coun-
ty-owned property north of the
Hardee County Landfill and is
used primarily for practice and
recertification of officers. The
other concern is groups congre-

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE CASH IN AT THE

AVON PARK ROADSHOW YESTERDAY!


By Jason Delong
STAFF WRITER
Yesterday at the Hotel Jacaranda, hundreds
lined up to cash in antiques, collectibles, gold
and jewelry at the Treasure Hunters Roadshow.
The free event is in Avon Park all week, buy-
ing gold, silver, antiques and collectibles. One
visitor I spoke with yesterday said, "It's unbeliev-
able, I brought in some old coins that had been
in a little cigar box for years and some old her-
ringbone necklaces-in less than fifteen minutes
I left with a check for $700. That stuff has been
in my jewelry box and dresser for at least 20
years." Another gentleman brought in an old
"IT'S UNBELIEVABLE, I BROUGHT
IN SOME OLD COINS THAT HAD
BEEN IN A LITTLE CIGAR. BOX
FOR YEARS AND SOME OLD
HERRINGBONE NECKLACES-IN
LESS THAN FIFTEEN MINUTES I
LEFT WITH A CHECK FOR $700."

Fender guitar his father had bought years ago.
The man said, "Dad had less than fifty bucks in
that guitar." The Roadshow expert that assisted
him made a few phone calls and a veterinarian
in Seattle, Washington bought the guitar for
$5,700.00. The seller continued, "I got anoth-
er $1 50.00 for a broken necklace and an old
class ring. It's not every day that someone
comes to town bringing six thousand dollars
with your name on it."
Jeff Parsons, President of the Treasure Hunt-
ers Roadshow commented, "Lots of people
have items that they know are valuable but just
don't know where to sell them. Old toys, trains,
swords, guitars, pocket watches or just about
anything old is valuable to collectors. These col-
lectors are willing to pay big money for those
items that they are looking for."
This week's Roadshow is the best place to
get connected with those collectors. The pro-
cess is free and anyone can bring items down
to the event. If the Roadshow experts find items
that their collectors are interested in, offers will
be.made to purchase them. About 80% of the
guests that attend the show end up selling one
or more items at the event.
Antiques and collectibles are not the only
items the Roadshow is buying. 'Gold and silver
markets are soaring," says Archie Davis, a
Roadshow representative. "Broken jewelry and
gold and silver coins add, up very quickly. I just
finished-working with a gentleman that had an


Gold and silver pour into yesterday's Roadshow due to highest prices in 40 years.


old class ring, two bracelets
and a handful of silver dollars.
His check was for over
$650.00. I would say that there
were well over 100 people in
here yesterday that sold their
scrap gold."
One gentleman holding his
check for over $1,250.00 in
the lobby of the event yesterday
had this comment, "I am so hap-
py I decided to come to the
Roadshow. I saw the newspaper
ad for the event and brought in
an old German sword I had'
brought back from World War II If you go
and some old coins, and here is
mycheck. What a great thing represent
for our community. I am heading represent
home now to see what else I purchase
have.that they might be interest- this weei
ed in."
The Roadshow continues today starting at
9am. The event is free and no appointment is
needed.


*Gather items of interest from your
attic, garage, basement, etc. There is
no limit to the amount of items you can
bring.

*No appointment is necessary.

*If interested in selling, we will consult
our collectors' database to see if a
buyer exists-90% of all items have
offers in our database.

*The offer is made on the spot on
behalf of our collectors making the
offer.

*If you decide to accept the offer, we
will pay you on the spot and ship the
item to the collector. The collector pays
all shipping and handling charges.

*You get 100% of the offer with no
hidden fees.

JV Streaks Stop Hardee JV HOT DOG


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It was a scoreless game until
the fourth inning.
The Hardee junior varsity
Wildcats took the lead in the
fourth inning, but couldn't hold
out against the late-inning hit-
ting of the Sebring junior Blue
Streaks and their own self-
destruction
Errors, hit batsmen and walks
accounted for most of the
scores in last Thursday's loss at
Sebring.
This week, the boys are at
Fort Meade today (Thursday)
and home tomorrow night for a
6 p.m. visit by the Lake Placid
junior Dragons. Next week, it's
a pair of home games, Tuesday
against DeSoto and Friday in a
home doubleheader against
Sebring, with the JVs playing at
4:30 and the varsities about
7:30.


Head coach John Sharp was
philosophical about last week's
loss to Sebring. "If we had
stopped at four innings, we had
played excellent ball. Garrett
(Albritton) pitched well. But it
showed us things we have to
work on. We were up 1-0,
down 5-1, then caught up to 5-4
before we couldn't throw
strikes," summed up Sharp.
Albritton recorded five
strikeouts and the defense did
the rest in the first four innings
at Sebring. He drew a walk in
the second inning but was
stranded. Armando Alamia and
Jacob Bolin both singled in the
second inning but were left on
the base paths.
In the top of the fourth,
Hardee squeezed a run across
the plate to take a 1-0 lead.
Albritton drew a walk, ad-
vanced on a ground-out and
came home on a fielder's


choice.
Jacob Altman walked in the
top of the fifth but was strand-
ed. With a change of pitchers,
Sebring used walks, hit batters
and an error to plate five runs.
Hardee got three runs in the
top of the sixth, Hardee re-
sponded with a trio of tallies.
Luke Palmer led off with a sin-
gle, but was out on an Albritton
fielder's choice. Justin Forrester
singled, Ramiro Briones dou-
bled and Altman was safe on an
error, which allowed Briones to
race home.
The wall fell in in the home
half of the sixth, and final,
inning. A double, three hit bat-
ters and three walks brought a
half dozen young Streaks across
home plate, allowing them to
claim and 11-4 win as the varsi-
ties began to get ready for their
game.


Darlings Softball Began Saturday


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2011 softball season for

Formerly called the Dixie

CF Industries Peaches.
Elizabeth Herrera and Trinity
Her circled the bases three
times apiece for the Babes.
Kaylee Gibson and Baleigh
Herrera had twin tallies and
Genesis Silva and Rebekah
Erekson each added a run.
Other players for head coach
Manuel Herrera are Skylar

baunga, Alexis Hagood, Lee
Anna Reas, Katie Brandeberry,
Faith Davis, Savannah Conerly,

In game three, the Sweet
Tarts downed the Sevigny &
Timmerman Eye Care Heart-
breakers 4-1.
Montanez and Galvez scored
in the first inning for the Sweet
Tarts, while Patel and Montes
scored the winning tallies in the
home half of the fifth inning.
Myia Lamy put the only run

coach Shawn Rimes are Ebony


Lamy, Mady Tyson, Valerie
Martinez, Josie Nichols, Mia
Cabrera, Chloe Martinez, Mad-
ison White, Lahna Christian,

Game four was a barn-burner
as the Babes outlasted the

Elizabeth Herrera and Ba-
leigh Herrera were the only
triple-tally batters for the
Babes. Her came home twice
and Tatum and Erekson chipped
in with a run apiece.
The Power Puffs countered
with dual scores from Durden,

runs from Camel, Plata and
Gaitan.
Saturday's finale was another
close encounter as the Heart-
breakers nipped the Peaches 5-
4.
Ebony Lamy and Ullrich
came around to score in the sec-
ond inning for the Heartbreak-
ers. Christian added a run in the
third frame and another in the
fifth inning. Mady Tyson scored
the winning run in the sixth
inning.
For the Peaches, it was
Bryant with a run in the third,
Brandeberry with one in the
fifth inning and Beattie and
Hays with the final pair of
scores in the sixth.


Everything in creation has its appointed painter or poet and remains in bondage like
the princess in the fairy tale 'til its appropriate liberator comes to set it free.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

The first written mention of ice cream in this country can be found in a letter from the
1700s, which admiringly describes the ice cream and strawberry dessert a Maryland
governor served at a dinner party.

RECYCLED ROBOTS


COURTESY PHOTO
First graders in Mary Lynne Driskell and Candice Conerly's classes at Wauchula
Elementary School recently had a great time making robot creations and showing them
to their classmates. This project went along with the story for that week, "June Robot
Cleans Up." The youngsters learned about recycling, and how "trash" can be reused
and turned into something new.

NWES Kids Open Wide


March 10, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 3C


Angels Softball Takes Off


For Free Dental


"Open wide!" was the refrain
at North Wauchula Elementary
School recently as youngsters
were provided with free dental
screenings.
* Dentists with Central Florida
Health Care performed the
exams, while students in South
Florida Community College's
dental-assisting program aided
the doctors.
The children also learned
about dental hygiene and were
shown proper brushing tech-
niques with the help of "mon-
ster" teeth and a giant tooth-
brush, which surely captured
their attention.
Arranging the free screenings
was State Rep. Denise Grims-
ley, whose daughter, Nicole
Keen, is a guidance counselor at
the school. Also on hand was
Dwanna Gregory Hill of Flor-
ida Healthy Kids Corp.


"Healthy Kids is thrilled to
work with ACS on this pro-
gram. Together, we simultane-
ously encourage kids to practice
good dental care," said Rich
Robleto, executive director of
Florida Healthy Kids Corp.
The Feb. 1 event utilized the
Dental Outreach Initiative of
Affiliated Computer Services
Inc., a Xerox company in state
health-care program adminis-
tration. It began the initiative in
2005 because dental issues can
affect a child's ability to focus
and to participate in the class-
room.
The state Department of
Health cites dental problems as
one of the two most frequently
named reasons for children
being absent from school.
According to both the Na-
tional Dental Association and
the American Academy of


screening
Pediatricians, children from
low-income families have twice
as many cavities as their peers,
and the disease is more likely to
remain untreated. Delayed
treatment can have wide-reach-
ing effects, potentially leading
to problems with eating, speak-
ing and paying attention in
school.
Nationwide, more than 51
million school hours are lost
annually from dental-related ill-
nesses.
"As corporate residents of
Florida we are concerned about
the health and well-being of our
neediest children," said Will
Saundefs, group president for
ACS. "Together with our part-
ners, we hope to teach these
children that practicing good
dental hygiene now will have a
profound impact on their health
for years to come."

proponents of the action; and the public, and will define
the environmental issues and alternatives to be examined.
The scoping meetings are an important part of the AEIS
process, where interested parties can raise environmental
or social concerns and/or concepts for minimizing the
potential environmental effects of mining. At the scoping
meetings, participants will be able to ask questions and
provide comments and suggestions on any issues that
they believe should be addressed in the AEIS. With this
input, the AEIS can be structured to better address public
and agency concerns and help lead to better decisions.

The project Web site www.phosphateaeis.org has
information on other ways that the public can provide
input during the scoping process, additional details about
the scoping meetings, and the background for the AEIS.

Hog-Stealing Albrittons

Shot The Fence Cutters!


By TAYLOR MUELLER
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your name?
A: Ella Mae Williams.
0: Where and when were you born?
A: I was born at home in a small com-
munity called College Hill, west of
Bowling Green, on Sept. 10, 1936.
Q: Did you come from a large fami-
ly?
A: Yes, four brothers and two sisters.
My father's family were Albrittons; you
could not talk about anyone because
they were an Albritton or kin to one.
Q: Is it true that some were called
hog-stealing Albrittons?
A: A rumor has it that there were two
groups, the hog-stealing Albrittons and
the fence-cutting Albrittons. I claimed
the hog-stealing ones because they shot
the fence cutters.
Q: Were you ever asked about this?
A: Yes, for example, a year ago at an
insurance party I was introduced to Ben
Hill Griffin. He asked a bunch of ques-
tions. I asked him about his hogs and he
said, "I will not give you any informa-
tion about my hogs."
Q: What did you do for fun?
A: I went fishing and swimming in the
creek. On Saturday nights, I went to the
movie theater in Bowling Green. On
Sunday, we gathered and went to Fort
Meade to climb Sand Mountain, a huge
mountain of sand.
Q: What job did you enjoy the most?
A: Working for U.S. Agri-Chemicals for
25 years. I was a lab technician, analyz-
ing rock and acid for fertilizer.
Q: How did you get this job?
A: In the 1970s the new laws required


that company to hire a certain amount
of women. So, I was there at the right
time and was a woman willing to work.
Q: What big change have you noticed
over the years?
A: Growing up we never locked our
doors. Today, we don't leave home until
we have locked up everything in sight.
Q: How many children do you have?
A: Five children.
Q: Where do they live?
A: They
all live .v
in A it g
Hardee
County.
Q: What is the advantage of a large
family?
A: They don't have as much and they
learn to share.
Q: Did you ever live in any state
except Florida.
A: Yes, I lived in Alabama for about a
year.
Q: Where did you attend school?
A: In elementary school, it was
Bowling Green. In high school, it was
Hardee County High.
Q: What advice would you give a
young person today?
A: Dig in and learn this new technolo-
gy, but remember your Grand Creator in
the days of your youth.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each stu-
dent is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to
the students and for the enjoyment of
our readers.
