SEASONAL SHOT


PHOTO COURTESY KATHY ANN GREGG
Look familiar? This photograph appeared in the April/May 2010 issue of "Country"
magazine, one of the favorites of Hardee County readers. That magazine gave it a full
page, and captioned it "Hey, It's Spring!" The image was captured by Wauchula pho-
tographer Kathy Ann Gregg way back in 1994. The little girl is her niece, Kelsey Pinault,
now a college student. The photo also won second place at the 2006 Florida State Fair.
For now, it reminds us that the grass is beginning to grow ... and all is right with God's
world. Happy spring!

Heartland Chorale is presenting
an evening of "Precious Mem-
ories" tomorrow (Friday) night
beginning at 7 at First Christian
Church in Wauchula.
It will be "the county's own
take on the popular Bill Gaither
Homecoming series on televi-
sion," organizers say, and
promises to present gospel
favorites of old combined with
the new "sung in a casual set-
ting."
As a highlight, it will honor
four local "singing saints," Sam
Rawls, Virginia Metheny, Doris
Lambert and Duck Smith. Each
has been a lifelong singer, shar-
ing that talent with the commu-
nity throughout the years at var-
ious opportunities and events.
There will be a special tribute
to Hardee County's churches,
and the history of several
Hardee County pioneer families
will be recounted.
Serving as master'of cere-
monies for the event is Marcus
Shackelford.
Tickets are $10, and are on
sale at Wauchula State Bank
and Cat's on Main. A limited
number are expected to be
available at the door.
Preparation for the event has
shown what a homecoming it
will be! Chorale members
themselves spend rehearsal ses-
sions sharing the fond recollec-
tions the songs they are singing
seem to always stir.


It is just the reaction The
Heartland Chorale hopes to
evoke as it plans to make this
sort of production an annual
event.
The night will offer vocals
from solos to full choirs. Expect
to hear Sam Dunn, the Rev.
Spence Decker, Leslie C.
Coughlin, Melanie Carnley,
Susan Robertson, Shaydan
Ward, Laurie Linder, Kim Trott,
June Potter and Belinda Clark.
The Bowling Green Baptist
Praise Band will be there, as
will the Miller Family from
Bowling Green Assembly of
God.
Instrumentalists include
Steve Dockery. John Heath,
Bruce Durrance, Lynn Bennett,
Kay Paris, Paul Clark and
Jeraldine Crews.
The program will be under
the direction of Sherry Miller.
It will be an evening of fun
and memories as the old songs
of faith are sung, memories and
shared, recollections are told,
and histories are given.
And what "casual hometom-
ing" would fail to include a sin-
galong? Not this one! The
Heartland Chorale says the
audience will be asked to par-
ticipate in the singing.
For some down-home Sou-
thern Gospel and tradition, head
on over to the church at 1121
Louisiana St. in Wauchula.

Do I just<br /> need more self-discipline, or<br /> what should I do?<br /> A: Your increased cravings for<br /> sweets. could stem from physi-<br /> cal factors such as fatigue, dra-<br /> matic increases in exercise<br /> without adequate fuel, going<br /> too long without eating or poor-<br /> ly balanced meals and snacks.<br /> Eating mainly refined carbohy-<br /> drate foods, such as white<br /> bread, pasta and other refined<br /> grains and little protein can<br /> leave you feeling like your<br /> blood sugar is on a rollercoast-<br /> - er, and each time it hits bottom,<br /> you'll crave sweets. If any of<br /> these sound familiar, try for one<br /> week to eat three regular animals<br /> each day, each including whole<br /> grains and vegetables or fruits<br /> along with high protein foods<br /> such as beans, poultry, seafood,<br /> dairy or meat. Add a snack in<br /> between meals as needed for<br /> hunger, but aim for choices like<br /> fruit or nuts that will sustain<br /> hunger better. On the emotional<br /> side, if you've been a lot more<br /> stressed, anxious, or in need of<br /> comfort, some people are con-<br /> ditioned to crave sweets at these<br /> times. A feeling of, being<br /> deprived can set off cravings for<br /> whatever might be "off limits;"<br /> for some people, just planning<br /> to start a diet leads to thoughts<br /> of "I better load up now,<br /> because soon I won't get any."<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> April 7, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 3A<br /> <br /> <br /> DOING THEIR BEST<br /> <br /> <br /> SNutrition Wise=<br /> KAREN COLLINS, MS, RD, CDN<br /> AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR<br /> CANCER RESEARCH<br /> <br /> <br /> Q: I'm just too tired to be as<br /> physically active as I know I<br /> should be. How do people<br /> have the energy for this?<br /> A: It's not unusual to hear peo-<br /> ple say they don't have enough<br /> energy for physical activity.<br /> First, try to decide if you are<br /> more physically or emotionally<br /> tired. If you are physically tired,<br /> why? If you aren't getting<br /> enough sleep because you stay<br /> up trying to unwind watching<br /> TV or getting caught up on the<br /> Internet, here's an idea: set an<br /> alarm in the evening to help you<br /> go to bed earlier, moving bed-<br /> time back 15 to 20 minutes a<br /> night until you find a time that<br /> helps you wake up rested in the<br /> morning. If you lack energy<br /> because your eating habits<br /> don't provide lasting fuel, use<br /> models like the American<br /> <br /> <br /> Institute for Cancer Research's you've done this a few times<br /> New American Plate to get bal- and see the difference it makes,<br /> anced meals (at least two-thirds remind yourself that taking 10<br /> of your plate each time you eat or 20 minutes to release stress<br /> is made up of whole grains, will pay off in leaving you feel-<br /> vegetables and fruits; up to one- ing less tired and better able to<br /> third from animal protein like cope.

My gray car turned yellow with pollen this year, and my sinus-<br /> es did not handle it well.<br /> This spring escalated into one powerful economic boon for<br /> antihistamine manufacturers and allergy doctors. We Floridians<br /> suffer through, knowing that soon summer humidity and heat will<br /> drive us to seek air-conditioned bliss.<br /> But wildlife may not fare so well with the continued disruption<br /> to the seasons they depend upon during their life cycles.<br /> The National Wildlife Foundation recently published a report<br /> stating that spring now arrives 10-14 days earlier than it did 20<br /> years ago. Climate change has been the suspected culprit. Yet a<br /> man recently stopped by my office to tell me he was certain glob-<br /> al warming was a hoax, because Venice had not sunk into the<br /> ocean. What's a gal to think?<br /> As I sifted through all the materials to learn why this spring<br /> seems to be so powerft, I found myself thinking about the past.<br /> I remember a tractor driving around the small town where I<br /> lived in the late 1950s and early 1960s. The large horizontal tank<br /> on the back sprayed white clouds of poison to kill the mosquitoes<br /> that grew to the size of flies during a northern summer.<br /> My mother would admonish me to come inside for a few min-<br /> utes until the clouds disappeared. By that time, all the insects and<br /> small wildlife in the tractor's wake were probably decimated, and<br /> I would venture back outside to play, only smelling the lingering<br /> odor of the sweet DDT.<br /> All the while, the birds in the sky choked to death a very<br /> visible sign to herald changes in the way we viewed the environ-<br /> ment and wildlife.<br /> If the disappearance of the bald eagle and other birds did not<br /> give enough proof of the damage being done, Rachel Carson, a<br /> writer and biologist, wrote "Silent Spring" in 1962, recounting her<br /> findings of the destruction of wildlife as.a result of the indiscrimi-<br /> nate use of pesticides to fight the insect war.<br /> The federal government banned the use of DDT by 1973, just<br /> intime to save the national symbol the bald eagle from cer-<br /> tain extinction.<br /> What would Carson say to us today? She wrote back then,<br /> "The public must decide whether it wishes to continue on the pres-<br /> ent road, and it can do so only when in full possession of the facts."<br /> Those words are as true today as they were back in 1962.<br /> No matter what we believe as individuals, it is imperative that<br /> we read everything we can and decipher what is true and what is<br /> propaganda. An intelligent public can only make wise decisions<br /> based on informed and science-based information.

Rooster's, a once-<br /> popular Zolfo Springs eatery but closed for some time, has re-<br /> opened under new ownership and a new name. It is now called<br /> "Victoria's Restaurant" and is owned by Pedro Gramados.<br /> Gramados owned the Cinco de Mayo and Las Tres Amanas<br /> eateries in Hardee County when he found out Rooster's was for<br /> sale from a newspaper ad. Because it was located on State Road 66,<br /> he decided it would be a good business investment.<br /> When he bought the building at 825 SR 66, Gramados had<br /> wanted to keep the name "Rooster's." That title was already<br /> owned, however, so he had to change it. He chose "Victoria's<br /> Restaurant," naming the new dining establishment after his wife.<br /> Gramados explained that there were many costly repairs that<br /> had to be made to the restaurant before reopening it. He had to fix<br /> the kitchen floors, the equipment, and even tore down a wall.<br /> Victoria's is a family owned and operated restaurant. It is open<br /> for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving Mexican food that is made<br /> fresh daily and upon order.<br /> "Everyone likes that our Mexican food is real," declared<br /> Gramados. "Most Mexican restaurants go out and buy tortilla<br /> shells, but we make ours right here in the restaurant. Everything is<br /> homemade, from scratch, and it's fresh," he stressed.<br /> The restaurant has a kids menu, and even a "Budget Breakfast"<br /> that's $1.50. It makes deliveries if the total is over $5.<br /> It currently does not have any "special days," but Gramados<br /> <br /> <br /> PHOTO BY MESQUA FIELDS<br /> Victoria's Restaurant is family owned and operated, serv-<br /> ing both Mexican and American foods.<br /> <br /> <br /> confirmed that once the family gets the business going a little bit,<br /> they would most definitely have them. He said that their specialties<br /> that attract the most business are their enchiladas and Cuban sand-<br /> wiches.<br /> Apart from their Mexican menu, they also serve American<br /> food, such as chicken tenders.<br /> Gramados urges people who have just heard about the restau-<br /> rant to come out and get a bite to eat. "Because our food is made<br /> from scratch when you order it," he explained, "you will have to<br /> wait a little bit for your order especially because Mexican food<br /> has so many details but," he added, "you will never have to wait<br /> long."<br /> And Gramados and family believe you will find the menu's<br /> offerings worth it!<br /> <br /> REAL-ESTATE MOVE Keller Williams Realty of<br /> Highlands Market Center, located at 2359 US 27 S., Sebring, FL,<br /> 33870, recently acquired a new associate.<br /> Donna Steffens, a lifelong resident of Hardee County, is the<br /> new real-estate sales professional at Keller Williams Realty of<br /> Highlands Market Center in Sebring, serving as this area's real<br /> estate expert but also taking care of transactions in all of Florida.<br /> Steffens said she joined "Keller Williams Realty because of its<br /> reputation for integrity and its agent-centric business model."

In<br /> fact, you may have to add a few.<br /> In addition, here are some sur-<br /> prising facts, tips and tricks that<br /> may help:<br /> Don't have three meals a<br /> day-have more. Your diet<br /> schedule should include a good<br /> breakfast, three small meals<br /> (including snacks) with three<br /> hours between them and one<br /> meal at least three hours before<br /> going to bed.<br /> Think about what you<br /> can add to your diet, not what<br /> to remove. Set a goal to con-<br /> sumre the recommended five to<br /> nine servings of fruits and veg-<br /> etables every day.<br /> Spice up your food.<br /> Seasonings can enhance the<br /> taste and make you feel you've<br /> eaten more.<br /> Don't exclude any nutri-<br /> ent or vitamin from your diet.<br /> Eat all kinds of foods.<br /> Treat high-calorie foods<br /> as jewels in the crown. Make a<br /> spoonful of ice cream the jewel<br /> and a bowl of fruit the crown.<br /> Cut down on the chips by pair-<br /> ing each bite with lots of<br /> chunky, filling, fresh salsa.<br /> Balance a little cheese with a lot<br /> of salad.<br /> Downsize your dinner<br /> plates. Studies find that the less<br /> food put in front of you, the less<br /> you'll eat. So serve your main<br /> course on salad plates (about<br /> seven to nine inches wide).<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Prevent<br /> <br /> Through<br /> A nutrient-packed diet and<br /> regular exercise are key factors<br /> in preventing what the Centers<br /> for Disease Control and Pre-<br /> vention considers the leading<br /> cause of death in America: heart<br /> disease. It's behind more than<br /> one in every four deaths in the<br /> United States.<br /> Fortunately, antioxidant-rich<br /> foods, such as fruits, vegeta-<br /> bles, nuts and whole grains,<br /> contain many important nutri-<br /> ents and offer numerous heart-<br /> healthy benefits, according to<br /> Keri Glassman, MS, RD, New<br /> York-based celebrity nutrition-<br /> ist and author of "The 02 Diet:<br /> The Cutting Edge Antioxidant-<br /> Based Program That Will Make<br /> You Healthy, Thin, and<br /> Beautiful."<br /> "What you put into your body<br /> affects everything from your<br /> weight to your mood to your<br /> overall cardiovascular health,"<br /> said Glassman. "In general,<br /> simple diet changes, such as<br /> eating smaller meals throughout<br /> the day, will provide more sus-<br /> tained energy, which means less<br /> work for your heart."<br /> Glassman often recommends<br /> incorporating foods high in<br /> fiber and antioxidants, such as<br /> pistachios, into daily meals and<br /> snacks.<br /> <br /> <br /> Ways To Sh<br /> Instead of 16-ounce glasses and<br /> oversized coffee mugs, use 8-<br /> ounce glasses and 6-ounce<br /> cups.<br /> Serve dinner restaurant<br /> style (food on the plates) rather<br /> than family style (food served<br /> in bowls and on platters on the<br /> table). When your plate is<br /> empty, you're finished; there's<br /> no reaching for seconds.<br /> Serve individual courses<br /> rather than piling everything on<br /> one plate. Make the first two<br /> courses soup and salad. By the<br /> time you get to the meat and<br /> dessert, you may already be full<br /> (leftovers are a good thing).<br /> Close out the kitchen<br /> after dinner. Wash all the dish-<br /> es, wipe down the counters,<br /> turn out the light. Late-evening<br /> eating significantly increases<br /> the overall number of calories<br /> you eat, a University of Texas<br /> study found. Stopping late-<br /> night snacking can save 300 or<br /> more calories a day, or 31<br /> pounds a year.<br /> Brush your teeth after<br /> every meal, especially after<br /> dinner. That clean, minty fresh-<br /> ness will serve as a cue to your<br /> body and brain that-mealtime is<br /> over.<br /> Pack nutritious snacks.<br /> Snacking once or twice a day<br /> helps stave off hunger and<br /> keeps your metabolism stoked.<br /> Consider delicious, nutritious<br /> MonaVie RVL(tm) Nutrition<br /> Snack Bars. With 24 vitamins<br /> and minerals, these low-<br /> glycemic, antioxidant-packed<br /> bars promote overall health and<br /> well-being.<br /> <br /> <br /> ting Heart I<br /> <br /> Ih Better N<br /> "A homemade trail mix of<br /> dried fruits, such as apricots,<br /> and a handful of pistachios<br /> stored in individual bags is<br /> great to keep on hand to snack<br /> on throughout your day," said<br /> Glassman.<br /> Helpful Tips<br /> She offers these healthy eat-<br /> ing and lifestyle tips to help you<br /> maintain a healthy heart:<br /> Exercise regularly: Twen-<br /> ty to. 30 minutes of moderate<br /> activity at,,ieast three to four<br /> times a week will improve your<br /> circulation to help strengthen<br /> your heart and cardiovascular<br /> system.<br /> Manage stress: High<br /> stress levels can lead to high<br /> blood pressure, increasing the<br /> risk of heart disease. Research<br /> suggests that those who eat pis-<br /> tachios experience a significant<br /> reduction of the biological<br /> effects of acute stress, such as<br /> high blood pressure.<br /> Prep your meals: Take<br /> time after each grocery trip to<br /> wash and cut fresh vegetables,<br /> pre-portion proteins, including<br /> nuts and meats, and do any<br /> other possible food preparation<br /> in advance to make weekly<br /> meals more "quick and easy",<br /> yet still healthy.<br /> <br /> <br /> ed Pounds<br /> <br /> <br /> Curb your appetite natu-<br /> rally with MonaVie RVL(tm)<br /> Nutrition Shake Mix.

It doesn't get more wholesome and<br /> natural than that.<br /> So, why all the fuss and the need to designate April as "Chil-<br /> dren & Nature Awareness Month"?<br /> The unfortunate facts are that Americans are becoming more<br /> tethered to electronic screens, joysticks and keypads than they are<br /> to the panoramic view, sights and sounds of unbridled nature, or the<br /> feel of a fishing rod in their hands and fresh soil beneath their feet.<br /> According to the Keiser Family Foundation, the amount of screen<br /> time increases with age, and schoolchildren are already spending<br /> 7.5 hours a day on electronic media!<br /> This is one reason scientists think the current generation of<br /> youths may be the first in history to have a shorter lifespan than<br /> their parents' lifespan.<br /> Moreover, youths may suffer from attention deficit disorder,<br /> depression and low school grades due to lessened work productiv-<br /> ity because of this trend. Richard Louv, author of "Last Child in the<br /> Woods," called it "nature deficit disorder."<br /> There is good news, though. The cure is simple: Children and<br /> adults should get outdoors and enjoy free "playtime" in nature.<br /> The great news is that active, nature-based recreation is fun,<br /> inexpensive and widely available year-round throughout Florida.<br /> I am the chairman of the Get Outdoors Florida! Coalition that<br /> seeks to connect youth to the outdoors and active, nature-based<br /> recreation to help them lead happier, healthier and smarter life-<br /> styles and to become better resource stewards. Imagine my pride<br /> when my grandson, Luke, said recently that it was so much more<br /> fun to be outdoors than watching TV reruns or playing video games<br /> that quickly become boring.<br /> This April, find a way to connect with a child or two you care<br /> about and enhance their prospects for a happier, healthier and<br /> smarter future by getting them outdoors.<br /> <br /> The Doctrine of Signatures was an ancient belief that<br /> plants, by the shape or form of their parts, indicated to<br /> man their medicinal uses.<br /> <br /> <br /> with<br /> <br /> <br /> Sunday<br /> <br /> <br /> Evangelist<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> John Ritcheson<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> - Friday April 17-22<br /> <br /> <br /> Sunday 10 am & 6 pm<br /> <br /> Monday Friday 7 pm Nightly<br /> <br /> <br /> Special Youth Emphasis<br /> <br /> Service Friday<br /> <br /> <br /> 4:7,14c<br /> <br /> <br /> ?LI, c<br /> <br /> <br /> Nie<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /><br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> PAGE ONE<br /> <br /> <br /> uCivic Center To Be Disaster Shelter<br /> <br /> <br /> SdIJvlyJ .PRJj IJ r<br /> <br /> <br /> By JOAN SEAMAN<br /> Of The Herald-Advocate<br /> Only about one percent of the<br /> earth's water is available for<br /> human use.<br /> About two percent is in polar<br /> icecaps, glaciers and icebergs.<br /> The other 97 percent is in the<br /> oceans, too salty for human<br /> consumption.<br /> Janet Gilliard, director of<br /> community development and<br /> general services, brought this<br /> news to the Hardee County<br /> Commission last Thursday as<br /> she requested a proclamation of<br /> April 2011 as Water Conser-<br /> vation Month.<br /> Gilliard also talked about the<br /> $4,845 grant the county has<br /> received from Southwest Flor-<br /> ida Water Management District<br /> (SWFWMD) to educate people<br /> about water conservation. Al-<br /> though there are 10,000 square<br /> miles and five million people in<br /> SWFWMD's 16-county area,<br /> this grant was approved by the<br /> Peace River Basin Board,<br /> which is limited to Hardee,<br /> DeSoto and parts of Charlotte,<br /> Highlands and Polk counties.<br /> <br /> SAVING WATER<br /> Instead of pouring water and<br /> dollars down the drain, there's<br /> plenty people can do to con-<br /> serve, said Gilliard, pointing<br /> out that each person in the<br /> region uses an average of 112<br /> gallons of water a day. For a<br /> four-person household, that's<br /> 448 gallons a day, 3,136 gallons<br /> a week, 12,544 gallons a month,<br /> 150,528 gallons a year. Mul-<br /> tiply that by the number just in<br /> Hardee County and it's a bunch.<br /> Did you know? A dishwasher<br /> uses 12 gallons per load, a tub<br /> bath 36 gallons or a show four.<br /> gallons per minute, toilet flush-<br /> ing takes four gallons, brushing<br /> teeth four gallons per minute,<br /> laundry 43 gallons per load.<br /> And, yard watering can use nine<br /> <br /> <br /> From The Heart<br /> By David Kelly<br /> <br /> <br /> gallons per minute.<br /> Suggestions: Take shallow<br /> baths, not a full tub; install a<br /> low-flow showerhead and limit<br /> shower time. Use your garbage<br /> disposal or dishwasher, your<br /> laundry only when there's a full<br /> load; turn off the water while<br /> brushing teeth or washing<br /> hands, don't let the water run<br /> continuously; water your yard<br /> on your assigned day a week,<br /> and only when there are signs<br /> of wilt-use a yard meter to tell<br /> if it really needs watering.<br /> Or, better yet install a rain-<br /> barrel tub or tank. That's not a<br /> structural change; it's separate<br /> from the home, said Jerry<br /> Smith, county building official.<br /> "Now, if you wanted to create a<br /> separate different waste system<br /> to capture shower and sink<br /> water for landscaping, that<br /> would require a change in the<br /> state codes. It's not allowed<br /> now."<br /> Smith also mentioned the<br /> new power flush toilets which<br /> have been installed along with<br /> energy star low-flow dishwash-<br /> ers, showers and air-condition-<br /> ing used at the new 57-unit low<br /> income senior housing on Sten-<br /> strom Road. The power flush<br /> toilets have a flexible handle,<br /> up for water waste and down<br /> for solid waste.<br /> Gilliard pointed out that a<br /> leak can cost homeowners over<br /> a gallon an hour, over 240 gal-<br /> lons a day for a "silent leak."<br /> She suggests checking your<br /> water meter to check for leaks<br /> and look at the faucets, show-<br /> ers, toilets, and other locations<br /> for even small leaks.<br /> Fixing leaks and installing a<br /> few inexpensive water-saving<br /> devices in your home could<br /> save an estimated 20,000 gal-<br /> lons of water a year. Reducing<br /> water use by even 1,000 gallons<br /> a month can save a family an<br /> average $34.20 on their water/-<br /> <br /> <br /> A CRAPPIE FISHING DAY<br /> My daughter, Katherine, has really taken off in horse riding.<br /> She has been fortunate enough to have a great teacher and is<br /> able to ride a great pony. At 9, she is able to compete in about five<br /> classes in the cross-rail division. Currently she is in first place on<br /> one circuit and in second place on another circuit, and is signed up<br /> for a third circuit in Ocala. So, to say we go to a lot of horse shows<br /> is putting it mildly.<br /> At the last horse'show, J.T. and I decided to head to Wooten<br /> Park in Tavares, where the "CrappieMasters" had come to town.<br /> They are a bunch of crappie fisherman that fish tourneys all around<br /> the United States, similar to the BassMasters.<br /> CrappieMasters puts on a free kids' fishing rodeo, as long as<br /> you bring your own pole, they supply the bait and even free pizza<br /> when you're -done.<br /> The winner of each division was able to take home a new rod<br /> and reel combo, and there were lots of other door prizes for the<br /> kids.<br /> J.T. and I tried hard but couldn't get a bite. There were about<br /> 80 other people in the same situation as we were. I think only five<br /> participants caught fish.<br /> One boy, who won the 10- to 12-year-old division, revealed<br /> his secret bait to the crowd and got a roaring applause. This young<br /> man caught seven fish, six more than any of the other winners.<br /> When asked whether he used worms or minnows, he replied nei-<br /> ther. When asked to share what he used, he replied, "Dough balls."<br /> The announcer commented that the bread company owed him<br /> a sponsorship into next year's tournament because he just sold a<br /> whole lot of bread. Someone who didn't win cried out from the<br /> crowd, "So much for your big-money fancy baits!"<br /> J.T. was a great sport despite our lack of success and managed<br /> to have some fun. One thing that helped pass the time was watch-<br /> ing all the seaplanes land and take off over Lake Dora. Tavares has<br /> built a seaplane park where you can take a seaplane ride and eat at<br /> a local restaurant. Literally, the planes were 50 yards from where<br /> we were fishing. I heard more than one child seemingly teasingly<br /> say, "I think we are going to get hit and die." If you want more<br /> information on the seaplane rides, you can just google "Tavares<br /> seaplanes" or call the Chamber of Commerce for Tavares.<br /> So, after surviving seaplanes and no fish, we went to the play-<br /> ground and J.T. was able to meet up with a friend there and run till<br /> he couldn't run anymore. Then we skipped the free pizza, much to<br /> my surprise, and headed to the house for a home-cooked lunch. We<br /> spent the rest of the day wrestling and watching TV and waiting on<br /> the girls to come home from the horse show.<br /> Katherine once.again won Grand Champion for the day, and<br /> she had one proud mama, daddy and brother.<br /> According to the CrappieMasters website, there are actually<br /> fish in Lake Dora and the Harris Chain: "The state champions are<br /> Floridians George Parker and Darryl Cole. The team weighed in<br /> 9.73 lbs. on Day One. On Day Two they weighed in 10.87, for a<br /> two-day tbtal of 20.60 pounds on 14 fish and making them the 2011<br /> Florida State'Champions.<br /> "The team stated they settled down after Day One, when they<br /> were in fifth place. They fished a ridge in about 14 feet of water,<br /> fishing 8-9 feet deep. They were spider rigging very slow out the<br /> front of the boat. They used pink jigs tipped with minnows. They<br /> won $4500 for their first-place finish," the website concluded.<br /> I guess it pays pretty good to go fishing, whether you win<br /> $4,500 or you get to spend some quality time with your son.<br /> Maybe J.T. and I will get a boat and compete with the big boys<br /> next year, and be able to pay for some of these horse shows!<br /> <br /> <br /> sewer bills.<br /> Gilliard will be holding meet-<br /> ings around the community to<br /> tell people about water conser-<br /> vation.

For<br /> instance, there is a project under<br /> way to clean up Lake Hancock,<br /> one of the most polluted lakes,<br /> and the headwater of the Peace<br /> River.<br /> SWFWMD is also working<br /> with CF Industries on a project<br /> to put three millions gallons a<br /> day back in the aquifer, Bryant<br /> said.<br /> Gilliard mentioned that the<br /> Tampa Bay desalination plant,<br /> one of the largest in the U.S.,<br /> has a capacity for 25 million<br /> gallons a day. SWFWMD put<br /> $85 million toward that project.<br /> "You should take ownership<br /> of SWFWMD, your taxes help<br /> it, It gets over 50 percent of its<br /> money through property taxes,<br /> at about $1 per $1,000," Gil-<br /> liard said.<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> ABOUT ...<br /> School News<br /> The Herald-Advocate en-<br /> courages submissions from<br /> Hardee County schools.<br /> Photos and write-ups<br /> should be of recent events,<br /> and must include first and<br /> last names for both students<br /> and teachers.

And on April 10th, its<br /> community will be glad they<br /> did. First Christian Church is<br /> putting its faith into action<br /> once again by suspending its<br /> regular Sunday service to<br /> practice very purposeful acts<br /> of kindness throughout the<br /> community.<br /> First Christian's congregation<br /> will be joining together to<br /> paint, clean, pray, remodel,<br /> visit the sick and elderly, feed<br /> the homeless, assist widows<br /> and the under-resourced as<br /> well as clean & beautify<br /> schools and monuments.

A total of 33 different<br /> projects will be completed<br /> during their normal service<br /> time!<br /> When asked about the up-<br /> coming day of service, Sr.<br /> Pastor, Darin Canary stated,<br /> "We're excited about how our<br /> congregation has rallied to<br /> support this special day of<br /> service to our community.<br /> Even though this is a one-day<br /> project that has become an<br /> annual event for our church,<br /> our goal is that we will serve<br /> our community and the under-<br /> <br /> <br /> resource everyday. We don't<br /> want to just go.to church.. we<br /> want to BE the church.

Our mission statement<br /> is simple: SEEK-GROW-GO.<br /> That's what we are all about!<br /> This is part of our GOING!<br /> It's time we stop warming<br /> pews and start putting our<br /> hands and feet where our<br /> mouth is. We think this annu-<br /> al "Faith In Action" day is a<br /> great way to do that and we<br /> can't wait to see what God<br /> will do through our willing-<br /> ness to serve instead of being<br /> served on April 10th.

April is<br /> usually a dry month. I don't<br /> know where the saying "April<br /> showers bring May flowers"<br /> came from, but I have heard it<br /> all my life!<br /> Our sincere sympathy is ex-<br /> tended to the family of Cassidy<br /> Knight. Her mother, Shelia,<br /> worked for Dr. Palmer when I<br /> did and then when he retired<br /> she worked with my daughter,<br /> Avie, at the school. I did not<br /> know her daddy but know he is<br /> grieving also. My mama always<br /> said it was worse to lose your<br /> child than any other relative.<br /> Our sympathy is also extend-<br /> ed to the family of Joe Grims-<br /> ley. While I did not know him,<br /> his son, Jerry, played with Lee<br /> Chancey's band. Lee is my<br /> neighbor and lives in Fort<br /> Green.<br /> Essie Deer's brother is much<br /> better. She said he had a turn<br /> around and was able to sit up<br /> and feed himself. Only the Lord<br /> knows when any of us will join<br /> Him. We are thankful for pray-<br /> ers and the fact that he has<br /> improved. Essie is sick with this<br /> "coughing mess" that seems to<br /> continue to make the rounds.<br /> The pollen should be gone with<br /> all the rain, but there is some-<br /> thing in the air!<br /> Wynell Davis is scheduled<br /> for back surgery this Thursday<br /> in Winter Haven. Please pray<br /> for these.<br /> Sam and Arden Rawls and<br /> Sherman and I drove up to<br /> Waldo last Wednesday for the<br /> gospel music held every spring<br /> and fall. Earl and Mary Bar-<br /> geron joined us Thursday morn-<br /> ing and then Greg and Shuree<br /> Rawls and Julius and Elaine<br /> Owens arrived Friday after-<br /> noon. We all had a good time<br /> together and enjoyed the differ-<br /> ent groups that were doing the<br /> singing.<br /> Brother Randy Perry present-<br /> ed the chapel service on Friday<br /> and Saturday mornings, and<br /> anyone who has ever heard him<br /> knows he is one dynamic<br /> speaker. Our sincere sympathy<br /> <br /> <br /> is extended to his wife, Mary,<br /> on the homegoing of her father<br /> last week. He lived in Arcadia.<br /> You always meet people at<br /> the different sings. This time I<br /> met a lady from Fort Meade,<br /> who said her mother had passed<br /> away but owned Nell's Fashion<br /> for many a year in Fort Meade.<br /> She asked me if I knew Kath-<br /> erine Shaw and, of course, I did,<br /> and told her I knew the chil-<br /> dren, Arlene and Roy. I even<br /> knew Roy's wife and children,<br /> and she was very pleased and<br /> wanted Katherine to know she<br /> was alive and well!<br /> Normally Daisy and Joe<br /> Collins attend the sing but his<br /> cancer was too bad and he went<br /> to the hospital instead. He is<br /> back home but needs our<br /> prayers.<br /> The Fort Green RA boys will<br /> have a campout at Hardee<br /> Lakes this Friday. Supper and<br /> breakfast are provided, and sev-<br /> eral activities plus a Bible study<br /> are planned. It will begin early<br /> Friday afternoon and end Sat-<br /> urday morning at 10.

In last week's<br /> only game around the rain-<br /> drops, the junior 'Cats won 7-2<br /> over Southeast.<br /> This week, Hardee hosted<br /> Avon Park on Tuesday, Mul-<br /> berry today (Thursday) and<br /> Southeast tomorrow. The first<br /> two home games are at 6 p.m.<br /> and Friday's is a double-header<br /> with the JVs playing at 4:30<br /> p.m.<br /> The JV season ends with a<br /> pair of road games next week,<br /> at Mulberry on April 13 and<br /> Avon Park on April 15.<br /> At Avon Park on March 21,<br /> Hardee opened the scoring in<br /> the first inning.

Justin Forrester<br /> singled but was cut down on a<br /> Ramiro Briones fielder's<br /> choice.

Garrett Albritton went<br /> the distance for the junior<br /> Wildcats. throwing 105 pitches,<br /> in the 10-inning game, which<br /> ended in a 2-2 tie, when Lake<br /> Placid called it quits and forfeit-<br /> ed the game.<br /> After Hardee left a pair of<br /> runners stranded in the opening<br /> inning, the junior Green Drag-<br /> ons put a pair of runs on the<br /> board on three consecutive<br /> Wildcat errors. The 'Cats set-<br /> tled down and played good ball<br /> after getting that out of their<br /> systems.<br /> Hardee picked up a run in the<br /> third inning when Altman sin-<br /> gled and Johnson doubled him<br /> home. Another Wildcat run in<br /> the fourth inning knotted the<br /> score at 2-0. Alamia doubled<br /> and raced home on an error on a<br /> Briones hit.<br /> The game rocked along, prac-<br /> tically three up, three down in<br /> most innings.

Johnson was hit by a<br /> pitch, went to second on a balk<br /> and third on a wild pitch. A<br /> Luke Palmer hit to left field<br /> brought Johnson home. Palmer<br /> went to second on a wild pitch<br /> and ran home on an Albrirton<br /> hit. It was 2-2.<br /> The Wildcats went in front in<br /> the fourth inning with another<br /> pair of scores. Altman started it<br /> with a singled to left and<br /> Johnson followed with a double<br /> to deep left. When Palmer dou-<br /> bled, it made the second score<br /> of the inning and a 4-2 lead.<br /> The junior 'Cats completed<br /> their scoring with a trio of tal-<br /> lies in the fifth inning. Alamia<br /> and Altman both singled and<br /> advanced on a balk. Tyler He-<br /> wett drew a walk. A sacrifice by<br /> Palmer and hit by Luke Winter<br /> kept runners moving, with the<br /> first three crossing home plate<br /> for the 7-2 win.<br /> <br /> <br /> "Overall. we weathered<br /> Spring Break.

They may have<br /> a new way to regulate their cho-<br /> lesterol level that doesn't<br /> involve prescription drugs.<br /> Cholesterol is a naturally<br /> occurring substance in the<br /> human body. It is used to make<br /> many of our hormones, vitamin<br /> D and bile acids, which aid fat<br /> digestion and keep cell mem-<br /> branes intact. How much you<br /> have is based on a combination<br /> of genetics and lifestyle.<br /> However, too much LDL<br /> cholesterol-often referred to as<br /> "bad cholesterol"-can slowly<br /> build and contribute to heart<br /> disease and clogged arteries.<br /> Some will try to manage their<br /> cholesterol with diet and exer-<br /> cise while others will turn to<br /> prescription medications.<br /> A New Approach<br /> One of the latest approaches<br /> to managing cholesterol in-<br /> volves taking a nutritional sup-<br /> plement. One such supplement,<br /> called Sytrinol, is described as a<br /> safe, effective cholesterol- and<br /> triglyceride-lowering nutrient<br /> that is designed to begin work-<br /> ing in 30 days.<br /> The supplement is made up<br /> of a blend of powerful antioxi-<br /> <br /> <br /> Cholesterol<br /> dants including polymethoxy-<br /> lated flavones (PMFs) and a<br /> range of palm (alpha. delta and<br /> gamma) tocotrienols.<br /> According to a published<br /> clinical study. Sytrinol was able<br /> to significantly lower total cho-<br /> lesterol, LDL and triglycerides.<br /> The formula is also said to<br /> increase HDL levels. This is<br /> often referred to as the "good<br /> cholesterol" because of the way<br /> it transports LDL cholesterol<br /> away from the heart and back<br /> into the bloodstream.<br /> Heart-Healthy Ingredients<br /> One of the main active ingre-<br /> dients in Sytrinol is a group of<br /> compounds derived from the<br /> peels of citrus fruits. The two<br /> most common are tangeretin<br /> and nobiletin, which are<br /> described as extremely potent<br /> bioflavonoids.<br /> Another ingredient is a group<br /> of palm tocotrienols, which are<br /> members of the vitamin E fam-<br /> ily and are extracted from the<br /> fruit of the palm tree. Like vita-<br /> min E, palm tocotrienols con-<br /> trol anti-inflammatory respons-<br /> es and degrade a key enzyme<br /> used by the liver to produce<br /> cholesterol.<br /> To learn more, visit the web-<br /> site at www.Sytrinol.net.<br /> <br /> <br /> Some of the more intriguing names that the Pilgrims<br /> gave to their babies included Ashes, Dust, Earth,<br /> Delivery, Increase and Weep-not.<br /> /<br /> <br /> <br /> M Er G Farms<br /> <br /> SFree Estimates<br /> <br /> We can do the following but<br /> not limited to ...<br /> Disking Cultivating<br /> Bush Hogging Land Clearing<br /> <br /> <br /> Fencing<br /> Finish Mowing<br /> <br /> <br /> Excavating<br /> Tree Removal<br /> <br /> <br /> Etc.<br /> <br /> <br /> If you have any questions or need more<br /> information please contact us as follows ...<br /> <br /> <br /> Mike Rosenberg<br /> George Ford<br /> <br /> <br /> (863) 328-0008<br /> (863) 781-5517<br /> <br /> <br /> m.gfarms@yahoo.com<br /> <br /> <br /> Don't be afraid to give your<br /> best to what seemingly are<br /> small jobs.<br /> -Dale Carnegie<br /> The man who puts into the<br /> marriage only half of what<br /> he owns will get that out.<br /> -Ronald Reagan<br /> <br /> NOTICE OF PUBLIC SALE<br /> 1988 Ford F-250 XL, Maroon<br /> VIN#1FTHX25G2JKA78558<br /> 10:30 A.M., April 16, 2011<br /> HILL'S TOWING, INC.<br /> 4205 US HWY 17 N.<br /> BOWLING GREEN, FL 33834<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Genuine Orthopedic<br /> SFoam encased sides<br /> Waverly -<br /> Was $594 now $297<br /> Pegasus -<br /> Was $695 now $397<br /> Westmorland -<br /> Was $1199 now $597<br /> HIGHPOINT<br /> FURNITURE<br /> OUTLET STORE<br /> 2350 U.S. 27 North Sebring<br /> Florida<br /> Across from Home Depot<br /> 863-382-0600<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Store Wide Sale<br /> Dining room start $197<br /> Living room tables $99<br /> 4 Pc.

All stations received much needed rainfall during<br /> the week of March 28 through April 3. Some localities in central<br /> and southern Peninsula regions received more than nine inches of<br /> rain. Over eight inches of rain were recorded in Hernando County.<br /> Areas reporting over six inches of rain included Hillsborough,<br /> Lake, Orange, and Polk counties. Rainfall totals ranged from near-<br /> ly an inch to over five inches in other stations. Temperatures aver-<br /> aged from one degree below normal to six degrees above normal<br /> for the week. Daytime highs were in the 80s to 90s. Cool nighttime<br /> lows were in the 40s to 60s.<br /> <br /> Field Crops: Recent rains aided field work for field crops to<br /> be planted. Topsoil and subsoil moisture supplies improved with<br /> supplies rated mostly adequate. Field preparations for planting<br /> field crops resumed. Growers in Holmes and Washington counties<br /> reported planting corn since soil moisture supplies improved from<br /> the recent rains. Some growers in Jackson County planted corn.<br /> Planting of cotton and peanuts is expected to begin in a few weeks.<br /> Potato harvesting continued in Other Areas (Lake Okeechobee,<br /> Immokalee, and Palmetto-Ruskin areas).<br /> Vegetables: Plentiful rains interrupted field work in addition<br /> to curtailing the harvest of some crops in central as well as south-<br /> ern Peninsula areas. Intense winds battered some young crops but<br /> are expected to recover. Growers in parts of the southern Peninsula<br /> began harvesting crops unaffected by winter freezes. Blueberry<br /> harvest was underway with very light amounts available.<br /> Strawberry harvest continued to slow seasonally around the Plant<br /> City area. Planting of watermelons was active in central and north-<br /> ern Peninsula localities. Producers marketed snap beans, broccoli,<br /> cabbage, celery, eggplant, bell peppers, radishes, squash, and toma-<br /> toes. Lighter amounts of sweet corn, cucumbers, endive, escarole,<br /> and strawberries were also available.<br /> <br /> Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition Statewide<br /> ranged from very poor to excellent, with most in fair condition. The<br /> pasture condition improved slightly from the week previous. The<br /> cattle condition was mostly fair. In the Panhandle area, the pasture<br /> was in very poor to excellent condition, with most fair to good.<br /> Pastures benefited from recent rainfall; however, cool night tem-<br /> peratures limited Bahia pasture growth. Cool season legumes<br /> which had not been overgrazed were growing well. Fertilization of<br /> pastures with warm season perennial grasses will begin soon.<br /> Feeding of hay and supplements continued. In the north area, the<br /> pasture and cattle ranged from poor to good condition, with most<br /> fair to good. In the central and southwest areas, the pasture condi-<br /> tion ranged from very poor to excellent, with most in fair to good<br /> condition. Recent heavy rain helped pastures green up and<br /> increased water levels in stock water ponds. The cattle were in poor<br /> to excellent condition, with most in fair condition.<br /> <br /> Citrus: Lows were in the 50s with highs in the 80s and 90s<br /> across most of the citrus area. This week, 24 of the 25 FAWN sta-<br /> tions recorded more than an inch of precipitation. Brooksville<br /> reported the most, with 8.92 in of rainfall recorded. Dover report-<br /> ed the fastest rate of rainfall this week, at 1.29 inches in 15 minutes<br /> on March 31, 2011. Overall, there were moderate to severe drought<br /> conditions in most of the citrus area according to the U.S. Drought<br /> Monitor, last updated on March 29th. Indian River, Brevard, St<br /> Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, Broward, and parts of Collier, Hendry,,<br /> Glades, Highlands, and Okeechobee Counties were experiencing<br /> extreme drought conditions. Forty-five packinghouses and 19<br /> processors were open although many have halted production until<br /> <br /> <br /> the Valencia maturity reaches desired levels. Harvest of Valencia<br /> oranges and grapefruit continued. Pea and smaller sized fruit is vis-<br /> ible on citrus trees throughout the citrus area. Grove activity last<br /> week included mowing, hedging/topping, brush removal, fertilizer<br /> application, and ditch cleaning.<br /> <br /> <br /> Light One Candle<br /> By Gerald M. Costello<br /> The Christophers<br /> <br /> <br /> LIFE AFTER LOSING A CHILD<br /> I've often read about people who lose their children to acts of<br /> violence and, as a parent myself. it's hard for me to see how they<br /> get through it. Topping that are those people who are able to turn<br /> their child's loss into something positive for others.<br /> That really makes me shake my head in disbelief and admira-<br /> tion, and not long ago I read about two people, a woman and a man,<br /> who did just that. Their stories simply blew me away, and I'd like<br /> you to hear them, too.<br /> Take, for example, the tale of Lonise Bias, a Maryland mother<br /> who lost one son to a cocaine overdose and another who was killed<br /> in a drive-by shooting. You might have heard of the son who was<br /> victimized by drugs. He was Len Bias, a basketball star of such<br /> magnitude at the University of Maryland that in 1986 the Boston<br /> Celtics made him their number-one draft pick. Two days later, he<br /> was dead.<br /> Lonise Bias told the Catholic Review, a Catholic newspaper,<br /> that she refuses to live in the past. "I don't care what you're going<br /> through," she said. "The best is yet to come."<br /> Bias, married for 45 years and the mother of two other chil-<br /> dren, has become a nationally known anti-drug speaker, telling<br /> young audiences everywhere that people are basically good. In<br /> December, she said she had forgiven those who had figured in her<br /> sons' deaths.<br /> "We will never get over the deaths of our sons and how they<br /> died, but we'll learn to live with it," she said. "You keep it moving.<br /> It's not like you're running up and kissing the people, but you<br /> move beyond that. Much of the pain you're dealing with in life is<br /> preparing you for your greater purpose."<br /> Ted Buczek found a purpose for his life, too.<br /> It happened after his son, Michael, a New York cop, was shot<br /> and killed in a 1988 battle with drug suspects. Buczek, who died in<br /> December at the age of 84, created a foundation in his son's mem-<br /> ory, one that focused on the neighborhood where his son worked<br /> and where he died, Washington Heights in upper Manhattan.<br /> The foundation provides scholarships to the police officer's<br /> alma maters, DePaul Catholic High School and Ramapo College.<br /> But beyond that, Ted Buczek turned his heart and soul to the pre-<br /> dominantly Dominican enclave of Washington Heights. He held<br /> food drives there, started the Little League named after his son, and<br /> personally developed a new baseball field where the teams play<br /> their games. In all, the league now serves 600 youngsters each year,<br /> 22 of whom have gone on to become New York City police offi-<br /> cers.<br /> "Ted is a legend in the neighborhood," said a cop who worked<br /> with the murdered Michael Buczek. "He gave back to the commu-<br /> nity that took his son."<br /> Father James Keller, founder of The Christophers, always said<br /> everyone has a purpose in life. Lonise Bias and Ted Buczek found<br /> theirs, and the world is better off because they did.<br /> For a free copy of "Forgiveness and Healing," Write: The<br /> Christophers, 5 Hanover Square, New York, NY 10004; or e-mail:<br /> mail@ christophers.org.<br /> <br /> <br /> April 7, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 9B<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> Outta The Woods<br /> By Tony Young<br /> Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission<br /> <br /> <br /> IT'S TURKEY TIME!<br /> Better brush up on your turkey calling, because spring gobbler<br /> season is here. Whether you prefer to use a mouth call, box call,<br /> slate or any combination, it's time to start talking' turkey.<br /> One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in<br /> Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey.<br /> This unique bird is one of five subspecies of wild turkey in North<br /> America.<br /> The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and nowhere<br /> else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-state<br /> hunters.<br /> They are similar to the Eastern subspecies, which can be found<br /> in the Panhandle of Florida, but tend to be a bit smaller and typi-<br /> cally are darker, with less white barring on the primary flight feath-<br /> ers of their wings.<br /> The National Wild Turkey Federation and the Florida Fish &<br /> Wildlife Conservation Commission recognize any wild turkey har-<br /> vested within or south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua,<br /> Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies.<br /> Eastern turkeys and hybrids are found north and west of these<br /> counties and into the Panhandle.<br /> The'highly anticipated spring turkey season runs to April 10 in<br /> Zone A and to April 24 in the rest of the state, or zones B, C and D.<br /> Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the<br /> daily bag limit is one. The season and possession limit on turkeys<br /> is two.<br /> Shotguns are the best choice when hunting turkeys, but if<br /> you're so inclined, you may use a rifle, muzzleloader or handgun,<br /> or you can try your luck with a bow or crossbow.<br /> Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour before sun-<br /> rise to sunset, but on wildlife management areas (WMAs), you<br /> must quit hunting at 1 p.m.<br /> Of course, you can use turkey decoys to help entice that stub-<br /> born old bird, but you're not permitted to hunt turkeys with dogs,<br /> use recorded turkey calls or-sounds or shoot them while they're on<br /> the roost or over bait. You also can't hunt them when you're with-<br /> in 100 yards of a game-feeding station when feed is present.<br /> To participate in spring turkey hunting, you'll need a Florida<br /> hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan to pursue a gobbler<br /> on one of Florida's many WMAs, you also must purchase a man-<br /> agement area permit.<br /> All of these licenses and permits are available at county tax<br /> collectors' offices, most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing<br /> supplies, by calling 888-Hunt-Florida (486-8356) or by visiting<br /> online at fl.wildlifelicense.com.<br /> If you didn't put in for a special-opportunity or quota permit,<br /> don't worry. Several WMAs don't require them Visit MyFWC.-<br /> com, then "Hunting" and, under "This Month's Hunting Opportu-<br /> nities," click on "Spring Turkey: Where to hunt without a quota.<br /> permit" to see a list of WMAs where you need only a hunting<br /> license, management area permit and turkey permit to hunt spring<br /> turkeys.<br /> Whether going solo after that elusive old tom or double-team-<br /> ing a pair of birds with your buddy, spring gobbler season is here!<br /> Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWC's<br /> Division of Hunting and Game Management.

To ensure its safety, Gulf seafood has been more<br /> rigorously tested by independent researchers and experts than any other seafood in the world.<br /> To date, BP has spent more than $13 billion in clean-up costs.<br /> <br /> <br /> Restore the Environment<br /> An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife rescue and<br /> restoration of wildlife refuges across the region. \e have also committed $500 million to the<br /> Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund scientific studies on the potential impact of the spill.<br /> <br /> <br /> Help to Rebuild the Economy<br /> $5 billion in claims have already been paid. We've committed $20 billion to an independent fund<br /> to pay for environmental restoration and all legitimate claims, including lost incomes. More than<br /> $200 million in grants have been made to the Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood.<br /> <br /> <br /> Learn and Share the Lessons<br /> This was a tragedy that never should have happened. Our responsibility is to learn from it and share<br /> with competitors, partners, governments and regulators to help ensure that it never happens again.<br /> <br /> <br /> We know we haven't always been perfect but we are working to live up to our<br /> commitments, both now and in the future.<br /> <br /> <br /> For more information, please visit bpamerica.com.<br /> <br /> <br /> facebook.com/B PAmerica<br /> <br /> twitter. com/BP America<br /> <br /> youtube.com/bp<br /> <br /> <br /> 2L:11i Br [&P<br /> <br /> <br /> 12B The Herald-Advocate, April 7, 2011<br /> <br /> <br /> A'<br /> <br /> <br /> - -<br /> <br /> <br /> o.<br /> <br /> ''.. l ,, .*-.<br /> . <e..I H .

Servin, Tyson and Parks<br /> each singled and were eliminat-<br /> ed from the base paths by field-<br /> er choices.<br /> With Southeast again scored<br /> in the top of the fifth, Hardee<br /> put together a string of hits and<br /> got all its seven runs in the bot-<br /> tom of the fifth. Henderson sin-<br /> gled up the middle. With one<br /> down, Carlton doubled and<br /> Knight followed it with a triple.<br /> Servin singled and Tyson dou-<br /> bled down the third base line to<br /> keep everyone moving. Parks<br /> also doubled, Aubry singled<br /> and Thomas had a two RBI<br /> show up the middle. When<br /> Henderson came up again and<br /> made the last out, Hardee had a<br /> 7-0 lead.<br /> Neither team scored the rest<br /> of the way, leaving the Lady<br /> Wildcats the 7-0 winner.<br /> <br /> <br /> Prairie dogs "kiss" by pressing their teeth against each other's face.

When she was 9 years old, she and her family received a life-chang-<br /> ing gift from Heifer International. The donation, a goat named Mugisa, provided nour-<br /> ishment for the Biira family and, with money earned from selling surplus milk, allowed<br /> little Beatrice to go to school. She was an eager learner and later came to the United<br /> States to further her education, graduating from college. As the students researched<br /> her story, they learned that for $20 they could ,provide a flock of chickens for a family<br /> like the Biiras. Donations of pennies, nickels,: djmesjquarters and dollars added up,<br /> and the third graders quickly reached their goal!

The American Cancer Society needs your support for<br /> its Road to Recovery program.<br /> Oftentimes. we become so consumed in our own personal<br /> lives we forget that there are many people out there in need of a<br /> helping hand. The Road to Recovery program prides itself on<br /> demonstrating to others that we still possess the capacity to care.<br /> Road to Recovery provides an essential service to the public, one<br /> that can ultimately save their lives.<br /> The Road to Recovery program provides volunteer transporta-<br /> tion for cancer patients to and from their cancer treatments. The<br /> volunteers- who drive for this program provide a crucial service to<br /> patients whose families and friends cannot drive them for every<br /> treatment.<br /> The American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program is<br /> designed to match cancer patients with volunteer drivers. The<br /> demand for volunteer drivers is high, and we need more dedicated<br /> individuals to help these patients in their time of need. '<br /> Drivers are an important part of a patient's recovery, providing<br /> moral support and a sympathetic ear. Volunteers can be retirees,<br /> students, homemakers or anyone with some time to spare.<br /> The main requirements are the desire to help others and to<br /> meet people, and, of course, a car in good working condition.<br /> We hope that people in our community with a morning or<br /> afternoon available every week or month will participate in this<br /> lifesaving program.

Nicodemus<br /> then asked Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he<br /> enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"<br /> Jesus answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is<br /> born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.<br /> That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of<br /> the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be<br /> born again' (John 3:3-7).<br /> Unfortunately, many speaking of being born again fail to fol-<br /> low what Jesus said concerning the matter. Some say you only need<br /> to have faith in Jesus and believe in Him to be born again.<br /> But what did Jesus say?<br /> Jesus said, "Except one born again, he cannot see the king-<br /> dom of God" (v. 3). He explained that this new birth consisted of<br /> being born of "water and the Spirit" (v.5). The obvious question,<br /> then, is: "How is one born of water and the Spirit?"<br /> For the answer to that question, turn to Scripture. It is the only<br /> source of authority in religion. Consider where "water" and "the<br /> Spirit" are connected:<br /> Acts 2:38 "Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let<br /> every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ<br /> for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of<br /> the Holy Spirit.'"<br /> 1 Corinthians 12:13 "For by one Spirit we were all<br /> baptized into one body whether Jews or Greeks,<br /> whether slaves or free and have all been made to drink<br /> into one Spirit."<br /> Titus 3:5 "Not by works of righteousness which we<br /> have done, but according to His mercy He saved us,<br /> through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the<br /> Holy Spirit."<br /> This new birth includes baptism for the remission of sins.<br /> It is in the act of baptism that one's sins are remitted and one<br /> is added to the body of the saved in Christ and is regenerated -<br /> bor again! This is in total agreement with other Scriptures.<br /> Romans 6:4 "Therefore we were buried with Him<br /> through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised<br /> from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also<br /> should walk in newness of life."<br /> Ephesians 2:1 "And you He made alive, who were<br /> dead in trespasses and sins."<br /> One becomes alive, though once spiritually dead because of<br /> sin (James 1:15; Romans 6:23), when those sins are washed away<br /> by the blood of Christ, the cleansing agent for sin (Ephesians 1:7);<br /> when he is united with Christ in the likeness of His death as he is<br /> buried in the waters of baptism (Romans 6:4).<br /> One then becomes a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians<br /> 5:17). That's when one is born again.<br /> Get Back To Basics, read, study and obey God's Word!<br /> Ian Rice is the full-time evangelist at Wauchula Church of Christ,<br /> a non-denominational group of Christians seeking to follow the<br /> New Testament pattern of service to God.

So I consider<br /> my Fair Ranch Rodeo column as my anniversary column!<br /> This year's Ranch Rodeo was as exciting as ever! There were<br /> five teams competing for that beautiful silver tray and winner's belt<br /> buckles, with three of them composed of Hardee Countians. They<br /> were 7S Bar Ranch (the Cantu family), Perry Custom Meats (Ed<br /> Perry's family) and Freely Cattle (persons employed at FINR).<br /> The "outsiders" were Stevens Cattle (not Charles Robert<br /> Stevens) and Pressley Cattle Co., both from Bartow.<br /> Btt this week's column is concentrating on the littlest rodeo<br /> stars, the mutton busters!<br /> One of the rodeo clowns that I work with jokes that you'll go<br /> <br /> <br /> to jail for slapping your child in public. but it's OK to put him on<br /> the back of moving livestock and call it entertainment'<br /> Most of these tykes love it, and keep coming back. Many of<br /> them have invested in vests, chaps (some custom-made). and dec-<br /> orated helmets (a must).<br /> And these young roughstock riders from Hardee County were<br /> out in full force consisting of Carson MontsDeOca from Zolfo<br /> Springs and Luke Roberts from Bowling Green; Wauchulans<br /> Cason Gough. J.R. Redding (his grandpa, Buck Redding, was one<br /> of the judges that night), Kaleigh Harris (who decided to save her<br /> skills for the great ride she had the next day at Reality Ranch),<br /> Tyson Pace (who is the grandson of State Rep. Denise Grimsley<br /> and who showed that even politicos can do rodeo), Eli Hayes,<br /> Boone Pazaglia (who was there defending his winning title from<br /> 2010), Caleb Nadasky, Parker Humphries (who also had an awe-<br /> some ride at Reality Ranch the next day!), and one of the most<br /> fashionable sheep riders I have seen in some time, Miss Trinity Van<br /> Sickle, who was decked out in hot-pink chaps and accessories,<br /> which show off her blonde hair.<br /> Trinity certainly is Tough Enough to Wear Pink (and has<br /> proven it by winning 10 points at each of the last two Arcadia<br /> Youth Rodeos).<br /> In case any of the others are locals, also riding were Morgan<br /> Parks, T.J. Keen, B.J. Johnson, Gracie Remy, Morgan and Shylee<br /> Dunlap, Ashton Bass, Brook and Taylor Barcinus, and Cason<br /> Smith.<br /> And the winner was (drumroll, please) Bryce Beckham!<br /> I believe Bryce hails from the Auburndale area, but he is the<br /> grandson of Bart and Susan Barton and Alan and Angela Ackley,<br /> all of Wauchula. This young man braved that dry, smelly wool and<br /> hung on for the longest ride, winning him his own belt buckle.<br /> Bryce was one of the contestants from last year also, so as you can<br /> see, perseverance pays off.<br /> Congratulations to all of these wild'and crazy youngsters for<br /> their great rides, and especially to Bryce. Appreciation goes to Bob<br /> and Shirley Jarriel for hauling those beautiful sheep to all of our<br /> youth events!<br /> Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg<br /> in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.<br /> Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459.
