states by busloads to see
this unique home-grown
production. The three-hour
drama, performed in the
Cattleman's Arena west of
Wauchula, has its final run
this Friday and Saturday
evenings. Over 200 volun-
teers and 200 animals from
all over the area combine
to make this unique pro-
duction biblically realistic
and accurate. It is inter-
preted for the deaf by
someone on stage among
the crowds surrounding
the Savior. His story ends,
not with the crucifixion or
burial, but with the Res-
urrection and triumphant
Second Coming (lower

opportunity to see this per-
formance as it will be
replaced next season with
"The Story of Noah."

Information on the mortgage
assistance financial program
has been clarified.
The temporary state mort-
gage program which began
Monday is an online application
program only. People can ac-
cess it by going to www.flhard-
esthithelp.org or by going to the
local website www.hardeecoun-
ty.net and following the links to
the state program.
The mortgage assistance pro-
gram is only for people who are
underemployed or unemployed
through no fault of their own. It
does not include people with
other hardships in making their
mortgage payments. The state
payments are made directly to
the home owner/mortgagee.
It has two facets. The Unem-
ployed Mortgage Assistance
Program can pay monthly mort-
gage and escrow (taxes and
home insurance) until the home
owner can resume payments or
up to six months, with a maxi-
mum of $12,000. The home
owner has to pay 25 percent of
his income or a minimum of

The second program is Mort-
gage Loan Reinstatement in
which first-time home buyers
who are delinquent no more
than 180 days on their mortgage
payments can receive up to
$6,000 to bring their mortgages
current.
There are three main eligibil-
ity requirements for the pro-
grams: household, property and
type of mortgage.
The homeowner must be a
Florida resident, legal U.S. res-
ident or legal alien and must
occupy the property as a pri-
mary residence. He/she must
have an active checking or sav-
ings account where the state
funds can be transferred. In-
come of all people over 1f8 in
the household is considered and
the mortgage must be more than
31 percent of the homeowner's
gross monthly income.
The mortgaged property must
be a primary residence in Flor-
ida, including a single-family
house, a permanently affixed
manufactured or mobile home
on property owned by the mort-
gagee, or a multi-family dwel-


ling wim at least one unllt UccU-
pied by the homeowner as a pri-
mary residence.
The mortgage must be a first
mortgage served by a regulated
financial institution or lender
approved by Florida Housing,
be no more than 180 past due at
the time of application and
began on or before Jan. 1,
20009. The mortgage balance
must be $400,000 or less and be
no more than 200 percent of the
property value. It cannot be
seller-financed.
Once Florida Housing re-
ceives the on-line application, it
will be assigned to one of an
area's service providers. By
Tuesday afternoon, the local
Community Development Of-
fice had received 14 applica-
tions from Tallahassee, includ-
ing people from Polk, Manatee,
Highlands, DeSoto and Hardee
counties.
Statewide there is $1 billion
dollars to help Florida home-
owners preserve their homes. It
is estimated it will help 40,000
Florida homeowners keep their
homes with this temporary help
in paying their mortgages.

The Hardee Rotary Club on May 14 will fly nine Hardee
,County World War II veterans to the nation's capital for a day of
fun. All expenses are paid, announced club president Sue Birge.
The nine veterans are Tom Barlett, Ray Grimes, his brother
Murray Grimes, Foy Newsome, John W. Maddox, W.H. Harward
SJr., Jack Carlton, B.J. Norris and Dexter Barkley.
"Guardian Rotarians" will accompany the vets and look after
* their needs. The Rotarians are paying their own way. They are Sue
Birge, Zee Smith, Klaus Kunkle, Joe Jones, Jeff Ussery, and Janet
Gilliard. Also attending will be photographer Sandy Scott.
They will fly Air Tran out of Fort Myers at 6:40 a.m. and their
return flight will land about 9 p.m.
A charter bus tour will include visits to the World War II
Monument, Arlington Cemetery, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier,
.monuments to the Vietnam and Korean conflicts, and other points
of interest. A briefing will be held May 1.
This trip is a part of Honor Flights.

Hardee County residents can discard unused, unwanted or
Expired prescription medications and over the counter medications
anonymously and with no questions asked Saturday, April 30, from
9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Hardee County Sheriff's Office, Wauchula
Police Department and Town of Zolfo Spring's Sheriff's Substation.
This is called Operation Medicine Cabinet and is designed to
keep citizens safe, protect young people from harmful misuse of
prescription drugs, and help seniors and the environment.
Drugs in medicine cabinets can lead to accidental overdoses,
poisonings, overdose deaths, and diversion, misuse and abuse.
Most abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and
friends. It is not recommended to throw them into the environment
or flush them down the toilet. Abuse of prescription drugs now sur-
passes all other illegal drugs.
This is a project sponsored by the Hardee County Alliance For
Substance Abuse and Pregnancy Prevention. A motto is "decreas-
ing risk factors by bringing about positive community change."
Suzanne Lambert is coalition coordinator and can be reached at
773-6349.
Residents of Brookside Bluffs south of Zolfo Springs received
word about two weeks ago from the Florida Department of
Transportation that the four-laning of U.S. 17 will be done west of
the community. An earlier plan was to have northbound lanes east
of Brookside Bluffs, reported Bert McCombs.

The Wauchula Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 10285 has
about 60 members, reported quartermaster Bob Hendley. The VFW
at 326 Hanchey Road has a supper at 6 p.m. and meeting at 7 p.m.
the second Tuesday of each month.
The supper is catered by Paul's Kitchen. Membership dues are
$25 a year. Post commander is James Harrison.
The building is rented to Celebration Church.
Hendley spent 20 years in the Navy, from 1953 to 1973 and
was stationed on the West Coast and went to Japan, Hong Kong
and the Philippines.
The Wauchula post was started in 1988 by war pilot and crop-
duster R.A. Jones
At that time the old Bowling Green VFW Post 4349 was
closed. It had dwindled to about 15 members and only three gener-
ally showed up for meetings-Jim Zajicek, R.D. Albritton and
Hendley.
Here's hoping President Barack Obama and the Republican-
.controlled Senate and House of Representatives can achieve some
progress on the national debt and budget deficit issues.
America has a $3.8 trillion annual budget with a $1.5 trillion
deficit and a growing $14.3 trillion national debt. The president
wants to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. These tax cuts were
set to expire in 2011 but were extended two more years by
Congress.
The Associated Press, in a recent story written by Stephen
Ohlemacher and published in the Lakeland Ledger, reports 45 per-
cent of U.S. households paid no federal income tax for 2010. The
average tax rate for the super wealthy in 2007 was 17 percent down
,.from 26 percent in 1992.
Over half of the nation's tax revenues came from the top 10
percent of earners in 2007, reported AP. The top five precent paid
44 percent of the taxes in 2007.
Uncle Sam can always print more money but that is not the
solution. State and local governments must pass balanced budgets
and cannot print money.
The Florida citrus industry is a $9 billion annual deal, slightly
ahead of the $8 billion NFL industry which is currently in own-
ers/players talks on how to divide the pie. Some agreement will be
needed before there is a 2011 season.

New Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam
wants to better connect Florida agriculture to "school lunch pro-
grams and other feeding and nutrition programs" such as WIC and
Food Stamps.
He said it is in the farmers' best interest that state ag products
are safe, wholesome and affordable. Putnam, a former state legis-
lator and U.S. Congressman, said state government, like the state's
farmers, ranchers and families, "will be tightening our belts and
looking for efficiences."
He feels water is the largest long-term issue facing Florida.

The Man In Red Brings His


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Man in Red with a big
cross painted red visited
Wauchula over the weekend.
The man has a Jewish first
name, has Cherokee ancestry
and is a bold "worshiper and
servant of Jesus."
Many passing motorists saw
Obadiah Franklin kneeling by
his 14-foot-long cross Friday
and Saturday at the intersection
of U.S. 17 and REA Road north
of Wauchula at the Winn-Dixie
and Wal Mart location.
On Sunday Rev. Franklin
spoke at the Wauchula Faith
Temple Church of God pastored
by Bishop Wendell Smith.


He has been pastor of four
successful churches in Florida,
an evangelist and for the past
eight years has traveled with his
wooden cross across the nation.
He has been in 48 states in
America. He witnesses in many
large cities in dangerous neigh-
borhoods and is often invited to
speak at churches.
He is dressed in all red cloth-
ing, including shoes and cap.
He keeps his cap pulled over
most of his face. He has been
written up in many newspapers
and covered by a lot of televi-
sion stations. He does not want
his face photographed because
"it's not about me. It's about
Jesus."

From The Heart d
By David Kelly ,


IT'S NOT ABOUT THE EASTER BASKET
As this Easter Sunday quickly approaches, it reminds me of all
the Easter Sundays that have passed.
It will be 39 Easter Sundays for me including this Sunday.
I can remember as a child that Easter was all about the choco-
late bunny, colored grass and the Easter basket. It was hiding eggs
for my younger siblings and waiting for cousins, aunts and uncles
to hide eggs for the older kids.
Easter is always celebrated with great food. I can remember
my mom's hams and casseroles and homemade bread with a glass
of sweet tea to wash it all down. Usually we had something amaz-
ing for dessert, too, like key lime pie or something delicious.
Now I'm the one, well my wife is the one, buying Easter bas-
kets and fixing delicious meals. And even now my children are
almost too old for baskets and egg hunting.
Easter really is a special Sunday. But not because of all our
silly little American traditions and commercialism that we all seem
to buy into these days.
Easter isn't special because we can all dress in spring colors
and look nice, or wear that special Easter bonnet that will never be
worn again. Easter isn't special because everyone will be together
as a family and maybe even go to church together. Easter isn't spe-
cial because of the Easter Bunny or because everybody gets a baby
chicken or baby rabbit to raise.
No, Easter isn't special because of anything that you do at all.
Easter is special because God loves us so much.
God sent Jesus to be fully man and fully God. Jesus lived a
perfect life, but was crucified to be our sacrifice, our propitiation
for sin. We deserved death, so instead of us dying God sent Jesus
to die in our place.
Jesus didn't just hang on a cross and die, though, He did much
more than that. He actually died and remained dead for three days.
On the third day He rose from the dead, and 40 days later He
ascended into heaven to be our representative, even more, our
intercessor.
When Jesus ascended He promised us His Holy Spirit to be
with us until He returned.
This is the Good News! This is the Gospel!
This is what makes Easter a special Sunday. It is a Sunday to
celebrate the fact we serve a risen King. Who is King above all
Kings, whose name is Jesus, whose name is above all names. The
Great I Am has loved the not so great "us," me and you.
I can't remember which Easter I first understood this. But I
know I must have heard it at least 14 or 15 Easters before I believed
it. Since then, Easter dress, food and time with family has paled in
comparison to remembering, rejoicing and remaining in the love
my heavenly Father has for me.
The even better news is you don't have to wait for Easter to
celebrate this Truth. This is something you can rejoice about every
minute of every day. No matter your circumstance, your heart can
truly rejoice in this truth.
So when you find that last Easter egg, or finish off that choco-
late bunny or throw away the last carton of pink Peeps, remember
what really makes Easter special.
It's not the purple grass in the basket that counts, not the time
with family over fabulous food or even going to church, but it is
remembering what God has done for you and for me, He has loved
us.

What Everyone 'Knows'

About Meat Isn't Really So


A recent Harris Interactive
poll revealed that some myths
about meat have been popular-
ized in books and movies and
have taken hold among con-
sumers-but these myths have
little basis in fact. Here's a look
at the truth:
Myth: Hormone use in poul-
try and pork production is a.
health concern.
Fact: Federal law prohibits
hormone use in poultry and in
pig production. They are not
used to produce chicken,
turkeys or pigs--ever-in the
United States. Between 1980
and 2005, changes in genetics
and feeding programs have
reduced "days to harvest"-the
time required to grow pigs and
chickens to full weight-by 15
percent and increased the
amount of lean meat by 45 per-
cent. This growth has nothing to
do with hormones because they
are simply not used.
Myth: It's best to get "hor-
mone-free" beef.
Fact: All living things-
plants and animals-naturally
produce hormones. While meat
can be produced without added
hormones, it cannot be "hor-
mone free." Hormones such as
estrogen used to make some
cattle add weight and produce
meat faster is used at levels that
are a fraction of what is found
in cabbages and soybeans or
what the hgman body produces
naturally. Experts say beef pro-
duced with or without added


hormones is safe and nutritious.

You don't just luck into
things. You build step by
step, whether it's friend-
ships or opportunities.


COURTHOUSE REPORT
An entry in the "Circuit
Court Civil Cases Filed"
section of last week's
Courthouse Report listed
an incorrect name. It
should have read: Lori
Barbaree vs. Universal
Property & Casualty Co.,
damages contracts and
indebtedness. The Herald-
Advocate apologizes for
the error.
At The Herald-Advocate,
we want accuracy to be a
given, not just our goal. If
you believe we have print-
ed an error in fact, please
call to report it. We will
review the information, and
if we find it needs correc-
tion or clarification, we will
do so here.

A benefactor sent him on an
all-expenses-paid trip to Israel
for six weeks.
Franklin said a large majority
of people in America do not
attend church on a regular basis,
and he can witness to them
along the highways and side-
walks.
Despite witnessing in danger-
ous neighborhoods he is not
afraid. He feels Jesus would go
to those areas. He has faced
danger a number of times. If he
is killed, he knows he is going
to heaven.
In one city he noticed a car
pull up and the driver reached
for a gun on the front seat. The
man's hand reached toward the
gun but stopped inches short,
and the driver sped off. Another
similar incident occurred with a
knife on the front seat of a car,
and the man appeared unable to
grab the knife.
In a third incident someone
hurled a large rock at him from
behind. Franklin said the rock
suddenly fell down harmlessly
after striking his clothing.
A trip to rural Kentucky once
led to an unplanned 70-day
revival in which many people
made decisions for Christ and
five planned surgeries were
cancelled.
Apparently there was a divine
plan for the man before he was
born. Franklin said God told his
father his first child would be a
son, to name him Obadiah and
that he would be a minister.
Franklin was the first of seven


children born to 1
mother once too

with him. The

PLO camps.
In the Old Testament
Abraham had two sons. The
first son was by his maid Hagar
and the child was named
Ishmael, considered the father
of the Arabs.
The second son was by his
aged wife Sarah and was named
Isaac, the son of promise and
laughter and of the lineage that
produced Jesus.
Over eight years ago Franklin
said God told him to build a
wooden cross, cover it with
blood red and to dress in red.
The red also signifies the love
of Jesus. The cross has a crown
of thorns and a sign "Jesus of
Nazareth."

name Obadiah own. I have been bought with a

While in Pahokee Franklin
a nation on talked with the high school


May 14, 1948, tor the tirst time
since 586 B.C. Franklin was
born on Sept. 28. 1948.
Franklin started out as an
unmarried teenager traveling by
Greyhound and Trailways.
He flew to Israel in a Delta
Boeing 777, departing from
Atlanta and arriving in Tel Aviv.
He said Isaiah 63:1-4 refers to a
man from Edom who wore
clothing dyed red in color.
SUpon arriving in Israel with
no plan Franklin said he fasted
and prayed for three days and
nights and then received a plan
from Jesus to "start where I fin-
ished (at Calvary) and finish
wheir I started (at Bethlehem)."
For his trip to Israel there
were signs on the cross that said
Yashua (old Arabic) and Yeshua
(Hebrew) instead of "Jesus of
Nazareth" so everyone over
there could understand the mes-
sage.
He me several times at large
dinners with a third generation
PLO leader named Jehad
Ramadan who said he often
thought of killing all the Jews in
Israel. At the last visit Ramadan
called Franklin "my friend." He
also walked with the cross

ers to the NFL, said Franklin.
The coach, however, said he is
"most proud of my boys who
are now carrying the Bible."
Franklin told the Faith Tem-
ple Church of God congrega-
tion and visitors Sunday night
that "to know about Jesus is
religion and is not good enough.
To know Jesus is a relationship.
There is a big difference. We
need an intimate personal say-.
ing relationship and to be ready
to go to Heaven. God gives us a
sound mind, not fear."
His talk was based on Psalms
23:4, "Yea though I walk,
through the valley of the shad-
ow of death, I will fear no evil,
for thou art with me."
Franklin and his wife Karla
have two grown sons and five
grandchildren. The couple have
a home in Spring Hill near
Brooksville and an apartment in
Fort Worth, Texas, where hisr
wife works in the IT department
for Alcon Labs. His Internet
address is MAPJESUS.com.

ENCOURAGING ENTERTAINERS


Researchers are finding new
ways to deal with chronic dis-
eases, which are becoming an
epidemic in the U.S., especially
among senior citizens.
The Problem
Consider this: Nearly two in
five Medicare beneficiaries live
with three or more chronic con-
ditions, including hypertension
and arthritis, the most common
ones. By 2030, nearly 150 mil-
lion Americans are expected to
suffer from at least one of these
conditions.
These long-term and com-
monly incurable illnesses sig-
nificantly alter a person's inde-
pendence and quality of life and
rank as the No. 1 cause of death
and disability. While the dis-
eases require an extended level
of expensive care, the good
news is that much of the cost is
preventable with a proactive
approach to managing the con-
ditions.
Recent health care reform
shined a spotlight on preventive
health care. However, to a-
chieve affordable care, it is crit-
ical to consider the support
those fighting chronic condi-
tions already receive to manage
their illnesses.
Traditionally, the health care
system has been fragmented,
treating one disease at a time.
By treating the whole person
through programs such as
Humana Cares, we are able to
limit duplicative efforts and
provide social-care support that
helps improve lives.
The Cost
Chronic illness currently
costs $1.3 trillion annually to
treat and accounts for more than
75 percent of health care dollars
spent in the U.S. Reflecting lost
productivity, annual spending
on such treatment is projected
to increase by more than 40 per-
cent by 2023.
A Solution
According to a disease man-
agement study conducted over
three years by Health Affairs, a
creative strategy among em-
ployers is value-based insur-
ance design, sometimes known
as value-based benefit design.
These programs feature em-
ployee benefit incentives to
encourage people to adopt
healthy lifestyles and select
high-performance providers.
How It Works
Disease management pro-
grams, such as Humana Cares,
aim to address chronic illness
by promoting the effective use
of health care interventions and
preventive care in addition to
providing resources to stay
healthy.


That company provides per-
sonalized health coaching via
telephone, in-person care man-
agement and health education
and support. A care manager
serves each member and devel-
ops a personalized health plan
that coordinates the member's
medical needs and helps him or
her live as independently as
possible. For instance, a care
manager might help a member
understand the financial benefit
of ordering drug prescriptions
by mail or encourage a home-
bound member to walk to the
mailbox three times a week to
retrieve mail to help thpm start
to think about how exercise can
help improve their quality of
life.
The manager oversees a core
team that comprises nurses,
social workers, community
health educators and mental
health specialists. This group
works with members to connect
them with community-based
resources such as meal delivery,
home modification needs,
transportation and respite care.


"By looking at the whole
individual, we are able to teach
members with chronic condi-
tions how to participate in their
own care, arming them with a
community of resources," said
Julia Williams, Humana Cares
manager. "When members bet-
ter understand how to care-for
their illnesses, they live happier
and healthier lives."
The Benefits
So far, the program has led to:
A 35 percent reduction in
inpatient hospital admissions,
with a 5 percent drop in hospital
length of stay;
A 22 percent decline in
emergency room cases;
A 20 percent drop in med-
ical claims.
While our nation works to
prevent chronic conditions, it
remains vital to activate pro-
grams that help reduce costs
and improve the quality of life
for those with chronic diseases.

mana Cares, a complex-care
management program for the
chronically ill.

Listening

Session

Tonight
The University of Florida's
Institute of Food & Agricultural
Sciences is in the process of
developing a long-range plan to

grams cover the broad areas of
horticulture, citrus, livestock,
nutrition, financial manage-
ment, parenting, and 4-H youth
development, just to name at
few.
All 67 counties are being
asked to conduct a Listening
Session to examine the chal-
lenges and issues facing their
residents. The Hardee County

Session will be today (Thurs-
day) at 6:30 p.m. at the Exten-
sion Office located at 507 Civic

lenges and issues through the
programs of the Florida Co-
operative Extension Service.
Your input, comments and sug-
gestions would be greatly
appreciated.

love, can be terrifying. I
think we should follow a
simple rule: If we can take
the worst, take the risk.

Command Unit members hosted a luncheon to recognize the Telecommunications
Unit during National Public Safety Telecommunications Week.

Luncheon Honors Those


Who Answer The Calls


The Hardee County Sheriffs
Office held a luncheon for its


Telecommunications Unit last Public Safety Telecommunica-
week to celebrate National tions Week.


The event was held on Friday
at the Java Cafe in Wauchula.
The Sheriffs command staff
was present to recognize the
telecommunication staff. Sher-
iff Arnold Lanier, Col. Claude
Harris, Maj. Randy Dey and
Capt. Jim Hall all were present.
The second week of April is
set aside each year to honor all
the heroes who ensure the pub-
lic's calls for help and assis-
tance are answered in a timely
manner, and that the appropri-
ate fire, police or medical help
is dispatched.
Included in this local recogni-
tion was Gerald Shackelford,
the technician who keeps all of
the systems operating.
Across the nation, in times of
intense personal crisis or com-
munitywide disaster, it is the
local Communications Center
which receives these calls and
has emerged as the first point of
contact for people seeking
immediate relief during "their"
emergency.
This team of Sheriffs Office
telecommunicators is available
24 hours a day, 365 days a year
to answer the call of Hardee
County citizens in their time of
need.
Florida House Rep. Ben
Albritton's secretary, Karen
Whaley, attended the luncheon
and read a letter of appreciation
from Albritton for the "unsung
heroes."
Also present was Jill New-
man, Hardee County Enhanced
9-1-1 coordinator, who read a
proclamation from the local
Board of County Commisioners
proclaiming April 10-16 as
"Public-Safety Telecommunica-
tions Week" in Hardee County.
The Association of Public-
Safety Communications Of-
ficials also sent a letter thanking
these telecommunicators for all
the sacrifices they make to cre-
ate a better and safer world for
the public they serve.
The Sheriffs Office Com-
munications Center currently
takes calls and dispatches not
only deputy sheriffs but also
police officers for the cities of
Bowling Green and Wauchula.
The Sheriffs Office provides
those city dispatching services
free of charge. The center also
answers all 9-1-1 calls for
Hardee County, for police, fire
and ambulance service.
The Communications Center
is funded totally by the Sheriffs
Office, with the exception of
the E911 phone equipment.
Art is made to disturb.
Science reassures. There
is only one valuable thing
in art: the thing you cannot
explain.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit (No. FLA277355) to the Hardee
County Board of County Commissioners. The facility is located at 1435 Maurice Sonny Clavel Road, Wauchula, FL 33873 in
Hardee County. The Permit is for constructing and operating a Type II, domestic wastewater treatment plant. The facility will
be expanded from 0.050 MGD 3MADF to 0.360 MGD 3MADF.

The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is
filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting decision mhy petition for an
administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the
information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt of this written
notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever
occurs first.
Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency
action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request
an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent
intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain the following
information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the Department permit identification number and the
county in which the subject matter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the Department action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department action;
(fyA statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department action;
and "
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the Department to
take.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action is based shall state that no such facts
are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that
the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in
accordance with the requirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes is not available for this proceeding.

The application is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through
Friday, except legal holidays, at the DEP Southwest District Office, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637-
0926.

Wildcat Senior


Nite Tonight


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats split
games last week, played three
this week and enter district
tournament play at Bradenton
Southeast next week.
The Friday night win over
DeSot6 gives Hardee a solid
third seed in the district tourna-
ment next week. The Wildcats
have beaten DeSoto and Sara-
sota Booker twice each and lost
twice to both Southeast and
Cardinal Mooney.
But, before districts, the
Wildcats had a final regular sea-
son week, which began with
Monday's home game against
Mulberry and continued Tues-
day at Fort Meade.
It finishes with tonight's Senior
Nite Home game against Avon
Park in which John Mayer,
Kalan Royal, Scott Donaldson,
Lincoln Saunders, Kyle Ward
and Justin Bromley will be hon-
ored in pre-game ceremonies.

LAKEWOOD RANCH 12,
HARDEE 2
The Mustangs got things
going with when Zach Larson
singled and scored in the top of
the first inning on an error on a
Seth McGarry hit. Hardee went
down in order. Another Lake-
wood Ranch came in the second
inning on a walk, sacrifice and
passed ball.
It was quiet until the fourth
inning, when Lakewood Ranch
plated three runs on a walk, hit
batsman, three hits and an error.
Hardee answered with two runs
its only two runs of the game.
Saunders was hit by a pitch and
Donaldson singled. Both came
home. Justin Knight and Daw-
son Crawford both singled and
Dylan Farr was hit by pitch,
leaving the bases loaded.
The Mustangs let loose for
six runs in the fifth inning and
added another in the sixth for
the 12-2 victory.
HARDEE 8, DESOTO 4
It was a different team on
Friday night behind senior
hurler Ward, who helped his
cause with a two-RBI homer,
his first of this season.
DeSoto plated the first run.
Xavier Payne dribbled one to
the pitcher, who threw off bal-
ance and high. Devyn Steele
worked for a walk after three
foul tips. Garrett Anderson was
safe on an error, which allowed
Payne to score. Ward, who had
struck out the first batter, struck
out two more to end the threat.
Hardee took the lead for good
in the home half of the first.
Leadoff batter Mayer sliced one
to left field. Saunders slipped a
shot down the third base line
which refused to drift foul. A
Knight single to center field
scored Mayer and Wintz Terrell
followed it with a sacrifice to
score Saunders. Hardee led 2-1.
A trio of grounders and a sin-


gle left one Bulldog aboard in
the top of the second. Hardee
picked up another pair of
scores. Ward was safe on an
error and Mikey Retana went in
to run for him. Kalan Royal sin-
gled to right field to briefly put
runners on the corners, but was
caught rounding first too far.
With two down, Mayer drew
a walk and Saunders slapped a
hard shot at third to score
Retana. A Donaldson high hop-
per loaded the bases for Knight,
who walked to force Mayer on
home. With the bases still
jammed, Terrell almost got
more runs home, but it ended up
a long, fly ball to left field. It
was 4-1.
The Bulldogs got one back
when Payne drew a walk and
Garrett Anderson took one long
over the centerfielder's head
near the outfield fence for a
triple to bring Payne home.
Manny Perez looped over third,
but Saunders somehow got to it
for the out. Hardee left the
bases loaded in the home half of
the third.
DeSoto narrowed the score to
4-3 with another tally in the top
of the fourth. With two away,
Dylan Brewer singled to right
field and scored on an error on a
Brady Anderson hit. Hardee
went down one, two, three.
The Bulldogs left the bases
loaded in the top of the fifth.
Hardee got its bats going.
Terrell got one past a diving
second sacker to center field.
Pinch runner Retana was
aboard when Ward launched his
shot well over the center field
fence. Kalan Royal, designated
hitter for his brother, freshman
catcher Kramer Royal, singled,
causing a Bulldog pitching
change.
Deonte Evans greeted the
new DeSoto pitcher with a hit
to right field. A Saunders shot
got by the right fielder and went
for a triple, scoring Royal and
Evans and making the score 8-
3.
The sixth inning breezed by
as neither team got a runner
aboard. The Bulldogs wouldn't
quit easily. With one down in
the top of the seventh, Garrett
Anderson was hit by a pitch and
Perez doubled to deep center
field. Chris Steele singled to left
field to bring Anderson home
and leave runners on the cor-
ners. Ward bore down and
struck out the final batter to
secure his 8-4 victory.
"It was an excellent win, a
great game with a lot of district
implications. It gives us third
seed in the districts and it's
always a rival win when we can
take DeSoto. The kids came out
and played with a lot of energy.
They're a ball club with a lot of
determination. They're swing-
ing the bats," said pleased Head
Coach Steve Rewis.


Czar Peter the Great of Russia put a tax on men's beards
and a clerk at the gate of every town to collect it.

London's Big Ben is named after Sir Benjamin Hall, the
Chief Commissioner of Works when the bell was
cast.Contentment is a pearl of great price, and whoever
procures it at the expense of 10,000 desires makes a
wise and happy purchase.

JV Lose Final Games


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The JV Wildcats proved they
still have a lot to learn.
"They're a good group of
kids, full of potential. They
have flashes of being able to be
a good ball team and flashes of
being young," said Head Coach
John Sharp, as he reviewed the
JV's 9-6 season, which ended
with a pair of close losses.
Both were road games. The
first, last Wednesday night, was
at Mulberry. Hardee started
well. With one out, Jacob Alt-
man singled up the middle and
Kris Johnson doubled down
right field. Altman scurried
home. Vince Grimsley singled
to score Johnson add Jeremy
Rowe singled to score Grims-
ley. Hardee led 3-0.
Mulberry got two runs in the
Panthers' first at-bat. A single
and three consecutive errors
made the score 3-2.
Hardee added an insurance
run in the second inning. Ra-
miro Briones was safe on an
error, stole second and scored
on an Armando Alamia sacri-
fice fly and Altman single to
right center. Mulberry left one


runner at third.
It was another Wildcat run in
the third. Rowe was safe on an
error, stole second, took third
on a passed ball and crossed
home plate on a Briones hit. It
was 5-2.
The game rocked along until
the fifth inning when the teams
swapped scores. Hardee got hits
on a Grimsley triple and Rowe
sacrifice. Mulberry got one on
an error, pair of wild pitches
and sacrifice fly. It was 6-3.
In the top of the sixth, and
final, inning, Jacob Neuhofer
walked, Alamia singled and
Dustyn Godwyn was safe on an
error. Hardee left the bases
loaded.
Mulberry took advantage of
the final at-bat with five runs as
walks, hit batsmen and errors
piled up to give Mulberry the
win.
The season finale was at
Avon Park on Friday evening. It
was a scoreless first inning as
each team left a runner strand-
ed. Hardee left Kyle Hewett on
base in the top of the second. In
the home half of the second,
Avon Park plated a pair of runs
on two hits and two errors.


Hardee left Jacob Bolin and
Johnson aboard in the third
inning and the Red Devils also
left a runner on base.
In the top of the fourth, Har-
dee evened the score at 2-2.
Luke Palmer singled to right
field and went to second on a
Rowe sacrifice. Hewett singled
to left. A Bolin double to left
field brought two runners
across home plate.
The tie was short-lived as
Avon Park picked up a run in
the bottom of the fourth on a
walk, a balk, wild pitch and sac-
rifice. It was 3-2.
The Wildcats made it 3-3 in
the top of the fifth. Altman sin-
gled up the middle, Johnson


walked and Grimsley was safe
on an error, which allowed
Altman to race home. Avon
Park answered with a pair of
runs on a hit, hit batsman and an
error. It was 5-3.
Hardee tried to rally in the
top of the sixth. Wyatt Maddox
singled down the third base line
and went to second on a Bolin
sacrifice. Altman singled up the
middle to score Maddox, but
the third out ended the effort.
Upperclassmen Altman, Bri-
ones, Cole Choate, Justin For-
rester, Grimsley, Rowe and
Luke Winter, and freshmen
Garrett Albritton, Palmer and
Johnson may be a help to next
year's varsity. Freshmen Al-
amia, Bolin, Felix Esquivel,
Godwyn, Hewett, Eric Klein,
Maddox and Neuhofer may
need more JV experience.

TOBACCO PREVENTION
m . ...


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
Michelle Rabon and Candis Thomas on Wednesday, March 9, presented a program on
tobacco prevention to the Hardee Rotary Club at Java Cafe. They work with the Hardee
County Health Department Tobacco Prevention program. A 2010 survey showed 14.3
percent of Hardee Junior High and 31.5 percent of Hardee High School students used
tobacco within the past 30 day, a total of 565 students. HJH has 1,150 students and
HHS 1,275 students, a total of 2,425. Tobacco companies give some of their products
candy flavors. A 17-year-old is three times likely to use flavored cigarettes as a smok-
er over 25. New York City banned flavored tobacco in early 2010; Maine did so in mid-
2009. Hardee has a group named S.W.A.T, Students Working Against Tobacco. Shown
(from left) are Thomas, Rabon, Bobbie Barker of CF Industries, and Sheila Johns of
Florida Hospital Wauchula.

We can shed tears that she
is gone, or we can smile
because she has lived.
We can close our eyes and
pray that she'll come
back, or we can open our
eyes and see all that
she's left.
Your heart can be empty
because you can't see her,
or we can be full of the
love she shared.


We can turn our back on
tomorrow and live
yesterday, or we can be
happy for tomorrow
because of yesterday.
We can remember her
only that she is gone,
or we can cherish her
memory and let it
live on.
We can cry and close
our mind, be empty
and turn our back, or we
can do what she'd want,
smile, open our eyes,
love, and go on.

We never will forget
you Cassidy.
We Love You Forever
Your Families

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

S 75 YEARS AGO
The auditorium of the Wau-
chula city hall was taxed to its
overcrowded limitation last
night when one of the most col-
orful graduations ever was held
by the local elementary school.
Fifty-two young boys and girls
were awarded their grammar
school graduation diplomas.
The elementary school will
close today as well as Zolfo
Springs, Bowling Green,
Lemon Grove, Castalia and
Gardner.

The renowned auction block
here for produce and vegetables
witnessed an unusual fine day
of sales on Wednesday after-
noon as Hardee farmers brought
3,000 crates of cucumbers to
the market, where they were
sold for cash to local buyers
who supplied the northern mar-
kets with this fine Hardee
County product. The best price
this week was Tuesday after-
noon when the high bid of
$4.40 was paid for fancies.

The outstanding comedy hit
of the new film season will
speed into Wauchula Sunday
when "Strike Me Pink," Eddie
Cantor's sixth annual screen
musical for Samuel Goldwyn,
opens at the Royal Theatre
Sunday afternoon for a two-day
run. Ethel Merman is grand and
puts over some of the film's
smash Harold Arlen-Lew
Brown song hits in her inim-
itable style. Admission is 10
cents and 25 cents in the contin-
uous show starting at 3.

Bill's Sandwich Shop offers
specials, dinner with dessert for
30 cents and chop suey dinner
with rice for 40 cents.

50 YEARS AGO
A long awaited bill to levy a
one mill tax for the construction
of a band building for Hardee
County high school has finally
been introduced in the state
House of Representatives. If
approved, it will allow the


Hardee Countv Commission
and the School Board to each
levy a one mill tax.

A Wauchula man has filed a
S100,000 damage suit against
Dr. Gene Moore, charging the
surgeon performed a sterility
operation instead of a circumci-
sion. The suit alleges the man
entered the Wauchula Infirmary
for one operation and the doctor
performed the wrong operation.

A photo and caption shoA s
the new look in grocery stores
as It's Grady's Super Market on
U.S. 17 North had its grand
opening on Saturday. The new
building is air conditioned and
has large parking areas with
mercury lighting. Low prices
and a broader selection of prod-
ucts and brand names will be
available. Familiar faces will
greet customers, including Mrs.
Bessie Creech, a 19-year
employee, O'Neal Smith and
Kat Morris. Mr. Francis
Kimbrough has recently joined
the organization.

Realty ads this week include:
a residential lot 66x132 with
nice trees, $1,000, $100 down
and $25 monthly; a 3 BR, 2B
CB home with central heat and
air-conditioning, $19,500; and a
five-room home in Wauchula
Hills with hardwood floors,
fruit trees and lots of shrubbery,
carport and utility room for
$11,000.
25 YEARS AGO
County commissioners have
been receiving reports of van-
dalism and other problems at
the Agri-Civic Center off Alt-
man Road. It is a public build-
ing and can be rented for vari-
ous occasions. After a recent
party there, there were reports
of damages in the ladies'
restrooms, skid marks on the
floor and beer cans on the
grounds. After a 15th party,
there were reports of alcohol
and tobacco use as well as dam-
ages which took three days to
clean up and repair. The com-
mission decided to add a
deposit to the rental fee. The
deposit would be returned if
there were no damages or mess
left.

10 YEARS AGO
Flags were at half-mast in
Wauchula Monday as the city
paused to honor one of its own.
City Commissioner George F.
Heine Jr.. 75. was laid to rest.
He died last Thursday after a
long illness. He was in his fifth
term on the council, on which
he began in 1976. City officials
immediately called it an "irre-
placeable loss." Councilman
Clarence Bolin shared responsi-
bility for Ward III with his
neighbor Heine. They lived
across from each other on South
10th Avenue for 30 years.
"We'll miss his steadiness on
the council," said Bolin.

Wauchula Councilman
Charles Smith is shown accept-
ing a ceremonial $4 million
check from U.S. Congressman

An attorney who has served
the county for 16 years
resigned. Prepared for disfavor
from the Hardee County
Commission, Gary Vorbeck
came prepared with his already
typed resignation. Commission-
er Bill Lambert, who recently
took the slot of long-time com-
missioner Minor Bryant, said in

Vorbeck had a conflict of inter-
est as attorney for the Peace

Hot Weather

Means Active

Alligators
The onset of warm weather in
the spring is when Florida's alli-
gators and crocodiles start get-
ting active, and the Florida Fish
& Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission reminds Floridians and
visitors to be cautious when
having fun in and around water.
Florida is home to two native
crocodilians: the American alli-
gator, which is found in all 67
counties, and the American
crocodile, which may be found
in coastal areas of the Keys,
southeast and southwest Flor-
ida. Both species have shared
Florida's waters with people for
centuries.
The FWC recommends keep-
ing pets away from the water.
There are other precautionary
measures people should lake to
reduce potential conflicts with
alligators and crocodiles, and
they are available in the "Living
with Alligators" and the "Living
with Crocodiles" brochures
found at MyFWC.com.
If you have concerns with an
alligator or crocodile that poses
a threat to you, your pets or
property, call the FWC's Nu-
isance Alligator Hotline at 866-
FWC-Gator (392-4286).

Greetings from Fort Green!
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of John
Foskey. He was Essie Deer's
last sibling and made his final'"
journey last Friday. Also, sym-
pathy is extended to the family
of Gene Craft.
We had a good turnout for the
work on the Methodist Cem-
etery last Saturday. Not as many
as some mornings, but some
who had never been before.
Jimmy Welch from Sarasota
came over and worked. He
grew up in Fort Green and his
parents are buried here as well
as his brother. Methodist Cem-
etery is a beautiful old cemetery
and there are some old graves'
there.
We learned the way to clean
old gravestones was with full
strength white vinegar, clean
with a soft brush and wash off
with water. This is supposed to
preserve the stone whereas
bleach will destoy it.
A lady and gentleman came
to put flowers on a grave and it
turned out she was Bonnie
Duncan and grew up in Fort
Green. Her dad died when she
was 4 and her mother married
Charlie Rich after World War
11. She loved visiting with peo-
ple who knew about part of her
heritage.
The three Smith boys really
know how to work. While we
old folks were dragging, those
boys had energy enough to run
down the dirt road! Probably
they had never had this oppor-
tunity before, as there are not
that many dirt roads left. Also,
Sherry told me all four, which
includes Ciara, made the honor
roll.
Edith Bassett and I visited
last Tuesday. We met Peggy Eb-
ersole, who lives on State Road
62. It is terrible that someone
can live in your community for
over five years and you have
never met them! Also, we visit-
ed with Paul VanSickle, and in
the course of conversation he
said Beth Albritton was his
aunt. It was funny to hear such
a big grown young man refer to
Beth as Aunt Beth. We always
tend to think of the youth we
knew when they were young as
not growing old enough to have
a grown nephew!
All good things must come to
an end. Brother Steve and Tara


McGaughey took their son to
the airport last Thursday morn-
ing. They went on to Tifton,
Ga., for a big 50 birthday party
for a long-time friend. They had
a good time. Also, Mary and
Earl Bargeron are back home.
They spent a few weeks in
northeast Georgia. They were
there when some of the bad
weather hit, and I believe were
thankful to be back home!
There are always plenty of
sick we need to pray for, but
Sherman talked to Sherri Pap-
pas and she said Brian is doing
better. The doctors had given
him six months and he has sur-
passed that date. His brother,
Steve, is getting stronger and
exercising daily. They request
everyone to continue to pray for
them. Betty Abbott is under the
weather so pray for her.
Please pray for David Mc-
Quaig. He is in Afghanistan.
The group planning on at-
tending "The Story of Jesus"
was unable to get good seats.
All that was left were the end
seats. It is wonderful that so
many take advantage of this
production.
Don't forget the Easter egg
hunt at Fort Green this Saturday
beginning at 10 a.m. It is for the
entire community of Fort
Green. After the egg hunt, we
will have a hot dog lunch. I am
saying "lunch" so the young
people will know I mean in the
middle of the day, because I still
have "dinner" and "supper!"
May 1 is the Fort Green
Baptist annual Homecoming!
Pastor Robert Roberts will be
bringing the message. Every-
one who ever attended the
church is invited and urged to
come back for this exciting day.
If you have never attended this
church, this would be a good
day to try us out!
The special music will begin
at 10:30 and is a tribute to
Clarence Cooper and Merle
Abbott. The choir will be doing
special songs in their honor.
After the morning service, there
will be a super feast in the fel-
lowship hall. Everyone always
cooks his or her best food for
this special day. Incidentally,
there will be no Sunday School
or evening services on this day.
Please remember to pray for
one another, our country and
our military.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Then the Roman soldiers,
joined by the Jewish police,
seized Jesus and tied Him
up. They took Him first to
Annas, father-in-law of Cai-
phas. Annas interrogated
Him. Then he sent Jesus,
still tied up, to the Chief
Priest Caiphas. ... They led
Jesus from Caiphas to the
governor's palace. ... Pilate
took Jesus and had Him
whipped. ... Then Pilate
caved in to their demands.
He turned Jesus over to be
crucified.
John 18:12-13,19,28; 19:1,16 (ME)
FRIDAY
Then they led Him out to cru-
cify Him. They compelled
Simon, a native of Cyrene ...
to carry Jesus' cross. They
took Him to a place called
Golgotha (which means
Skull Hill). Then they cruci-
fied Him, and shared His
garments. They crucified two
bandits at the same time,
one on each side of Him.
Mark 15:20b,21-22,24-28 (PME)
SATURDAY
And Jesus cried again with p
loud voice and yielded up
His spirit (died). And, behold,
the curtain of the Temple
was torn in two, from top to
bottom. The earth shook,
and rocks split. The tombs
were opened and bodies
raised from the dead. ...
When the centurion saw ...
what took place, he said,
'Truly, this was the Son of
God."
Matthew 27:50,51,54 (RSV)


SUNDAY
They wrapped Jesus' body in
a long linen cloth with spices
as is the Jewish custom of
burial. ... The place of cruci-
fixion was near a garden,
where there was a new
tomb, never used before. ...
and since the tomb was
close at hand, they laid
Jesus there.
John 20:38-40 (NIV)

MONDAY
But on Sunday morning, very
early, they came to the tomb
... and they found the stone
had been rolled away; they
went inside, but. the body
was not to be found.
Luke 24:1a,2 (NEB)

TUESDAY
The angel said to the
women, "Don't be afraid. I
know that you are looking for
Jesus who has been cruci-
fied. He is not here. He has
risen from the dead, as He
said He would."
Matthew 28:5 (NCV)

WEDNESDAY
And then Jesus told them,
"You are to go into all the
world and preach the Good
News to everyone every-
where. Those who believe
and are baptized will be
saved. But those who refuse
to believe will be con-
demned."
Matthew 28:19 (PME)

12B The Herald-Advocate, April 21, 2011





Week ending April 17, 2011
Weather Summary: Low soil moisture was reported by coun-
ty agents across the State in addition to windy, unseasonably warm
weather. Only one Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN)
station, located in Broward County. reported cumulative rain levels
of over an inch, with all other stations reporting lesser to zero
amounts. Temperatures averaged one to three degrees above nor-
mal. Lows were in the 40s, 50s, and 60s, while highs were in the
80s and 90s. Drought conditions %were slightly improving from the
previous week; however, areas showing extreme drought are
increasing in the south according to the U.S. Drought Monitor
updated April 12.

Field Crops: In the north, dry conditions could delay peanut
planting. In Walton, Lafayette, Madison, and Suwannee counties,
peanut growers prepared and planted peanut fields. In Madison,
Suwannee, Escambia, and Washington counties, the majority of
field corn was planted but in need of rain. Cotton field preparation
took place in Suwannee County. In Walton County, oats for grain
harvesting will begin within the next few weeks. In the Hastings
area, potato harvest was underway with good yields reported in
Putnam County. Movement of potatoes for processing is expected
to increase as the harvest progresses from southern to northern
Florida.

Vegetables: Hot and dry conditions decreased soil moisture
and lowered water tables for vegetable producers in the Belle
Glades region. Within the same region, watermelon harvest was
picking up. In Glades County, blueberry harvest increased. A few
blueberry growers experienced some minor hail damage early last
week. Tomato movement was expected to decrease in south
Florida. Strawberry movement was expected to decrease for
Florida as most shippers had finished for the season. Light har-
vesting of cantaloupe began. Watermelon movement was expected
to increase but remain light for the next week. In Washington
County, sweet onion harvest took place. Market movement includ-
ed: snap beans, cabbage, celery, sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant,
endive, escarole, bell peppers, radishes, squash, tomatoes, can-
taloupes, blueberries, and watermelons.

Livestock and Pastures: The pasture and cattle conditions
Statewide ranged from very poor to excellent with most in fair con-
dition. Both the pasture and cattle conditions improved slightly
from the previous week. In the Panhandle area, the pasture ranged
from very poor to excellent condition with most in good condition.
Cool night time temperatures and drought limited grass growth.
Feeding of hay and supplements continued, beacuse cumulative
growth so far was insufficient to maintain the livestock. Cool sea-
son forage declined while warm season perennial pastures began to
grow. Cattle were doing well and most cattle were in good condi-
tion. In the central and southwestern areas, the pasture condition
ranged from very poor to excellent with most in fair condition.
Most of the cattle were in fair to good condition.

Citrus: Lows were in the 50s with highs in the 80s and 90s
across most of the citrus area. This week, thirteen of the 25 FAWN
stations recorded some precipitation; only two of them recorded
more than half an inch. Fort Pierce reported the most with 0.74 inch
of rainfall recorded. Drought conditions in the citrus producing
area ranged from none in the west to extreme in the southeast,
according to the U.S. drought monitor, last updated on April 12. St
Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, and parts of Collier, Hendry, Glades,
Indian River, and Okeechobee counties experienced extreme
drought conditions. Thirty-eight packinghouses and 19 processors
have opened. Harvest of Valencia oranges and grapefruit contin-


ued. with the open processing plants running grapefruit and
Valencia. Grove acuvnit% included \oung tree care. applying herbi-
cides. hedging and topping. brush remo al!. and fertilizer applica-
tion.




Playsets: 10 Tips For Parents


Few things work as well as an
outdoor pla set to get kids out
of the house and into the fresh
air. There are. however. -seeral
things to keep in mind:
1. Placement. Find a spot
with at least a six-foot space
around the playset so kids don't
swing. jump or fall into or onto
anything dangerous. Loose fill
materials such as mulch. wood
chips or reground plastic should
be placed under the playset to
cushion falls. Also. the set
should be placed where parents
can monitor children's activi-
ties.
2. Lumber. Look for a natu-
rally decay- and weather-
resistant lumber, such as cedar.
which is also a natural insect
repellent and blends well with
any backyard.
3. Assembly. Consider your
options. Should the playset be
hand-built? Will the lumber be
hand-picked and the playset
built with a kit? Or will the
playset come ready to assem-
ble-pre-cut, pre-stained and
pre-drilled with all the hard-
ware and accessories pre-
packed?
4. Cost. Most playsets are
built to last whatever the price,
but features vary. A playset is
something to be enjoyed for
years, so be sure it can grow
with your family.
5. Safety Railings. Safety
features must be put in place
during assembly. All elevated
surfaces, such as platforms,
need guardrails, and sit-down
bars should be above the slides.
Most quality sets will have an
arched entrance area to protect
little heads.


6. Anchoring. Make sure the
entire structure is firml\
anchored to a\oid tipping.
-. Maintenance. Presenta-
tise maintenance helps keep
kids safe and the ,warrant\ in
effect. E\er\ season, tighten
an\ loose ,supports. anchors.
bolts and screws and replace
anv missing nuts. bolts or pro-
tective caps. Following manu-
facturer's directions. playsets
should be periodically sealed.
stained and painted to prevent
deterioration.
8. Everyone Plays. Playsets
should be developmentally
appropriate, so consider the
ages of the children who will
play on it. Size depends on how
many children will play on the
set. as well. Consider how
many swings and how many
features you need for a fun and
safe environment for all.
9. Warranty. You should
know what type of warranty is
offered and what it covers.
Playsets should last a long time,
so seek a warranty with long-
term protection.
10. Features. Decide if you
need an infant swing, a ham-
mock or a two-person glider.
Accessories like a buoy ball,
rock wall, gangplank, hammock
or ship's wheel create a fun play
experience. With most quality
playsets, accessories can be
added later. You can see some
of the features available for
Backyard Discovery playsets at
www.swingsetsonline.com.
Taking these small steps toward
a safer play area can make a big
difference when it comes to
long-term safety.


How To Prune Your Hydrangea


You prize \our hydrangeas
for their beautiful flowers. You
also want to make sure \ou
prune them at the right time to
encourage the stunning blooms
e\er\ season. But do \ou won-
der whether or when to prune
them?
"The first step is to determine
the variety\ of \our hdrangea."
said Tim Wood. new product
manager at Pro\en Winners
ColorChoice. "This is fairl\
eas\ to do. If \our plant pro-
duces big pink or blue flowers.
it is a Hydrangea macrophxlla.
If its flowers are round and
white-or pink in the case of
the new Invincibelle Spirit-the
plant is a Hydrangea arbor-
escens. Finally. if the plant has
large. conical flowers, which
are often white but may also be
green or pink, you own a
Hydrangea paniculata."
Bigleaf Hydrangeas
If you have Hydrangea
macrophylla. also known as
Bigleaf Hydrangea. Wood says
you can relax. This plant
requires little more than a trim-
ming and only immediately
after flowering. You should
never prune it in winter or
spring, because it sets flower
buds the year before and if you
shear it back, then you will cut
off all of summer's flowers.
Newer reblooming varieties
such as the Let's Dance series
from Proven -Winners Color-
Choice will also bloom on the
current season's growth, but
you still want to leave the plant
intact through spring so you can
enjoy early summer flowers.
Smooth Hydrangeas
Hydrangea arborescens, also
known as Smooth Hydrangea,
are beloved for their adaptable
nature and reliable blooms. You
should prune it back in late win-
ter or early spring. These
hydrangeas bloom on "new
wood"-the current season's
growth. Pruning them back at
that time encourages new
growth, which produces flow-
ers. Spring pruning will also
result in a fuller, stronger plant
that's less likely to flop under
the weight of its abundant sum-
mer flowers. Cutting the stems
back to one or two feet will
leave a good framework to sup-
port the blooms.


Today there are tw\o new
"Annabelle" Hydrangea arbor-
escens s ith stronger stems, so
the\ \non't flop after being
established. Insincibelle Spirit
H\drangea is the very first
pink-fltowered form of "Ann-
abelle." Inincibelle Spirit con-
tinues to produce new pink
flowr ers right up until frost. pro-
'iding a beautiful display
across several seasons in \our
garden. from mid-summer to
fall. Incrediball Hydrangea has
the biggest flowers and the
strongest stems of any of the
"Annabelle" hydrangeas. In-
crediball produces incredibly
large white blooms as big as a
basketball.
Hardy Hydrangeas
Hydrangea paniculata. some-
times called Hardy Hydrangea.
also blooms on new wood. You
should prune it back in late win-
ter or early spring. 'You can cut
it back to the ground or. if you
want slightly taller plants, cut it
back to one to three feet. This is
a great job for one of those early
spring days when everything is
still dormant but it's so beautiful
and warm you need to be in the
garden.
A new variety of Hydrangea
paniculata won't require as
much pruning to keep it smaller.
The new Little Lime Hydrangea
boasts the same colors and ben-
efits of the famous "Limelight"
Hydrangea though only reach-
ing three to five feet fully
grown. At one-third the size of
other hardy hydrangeas, it fits
well into practically any land-
scape. Little Lime produces
bright cone-shaped lime-green
flowers, later turning into pink,
from mid-summer to frost.
Fortunately, even if you make
a mistake and prune at the
wrong time of year, these plants
will forgive you. You may not
have flowers for a season but,
with proper timing, you'll see
them the following year. Just
remember to start by correctly'
identifying which kind of
hydrangea you have. With just a
little work, you'll get beautiful
flowers from your hydrangeas
year after year. For more infor-
mation on the newest hy-
drangeas, visit.www.proven-
winners.com.

Lady 'Cats Close With Twin Wins;


District Championship Tonight


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It vwas a wonderful way to
end the season for a young
Ilardee Lady Wildcat squad.
The girls finished with their
second and third consecutive
shutouts to cap the season for a
team ,with only two seniors,
Elvira Servin and Caylah
Coker. Courtney Parks is the
lone junior as underclassmen
fill out the team.
Hardee between hosting
District 11 playoffs on Tuesday
night. At 5:30, top-seed DeSoto
faced the winner of the fourth-
seed Bradenton Southeast vs.
fifth-seed Sarasota Booker
game played on Monday
evening at Southeast.
Hardee had the late district
playoff game on Tuesday night,
slated to begin about 7:30.
Seeded third by the flip of a
coin, Hardee, although host,
was the visitor to second-seed
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney.
Both teams finished with 5-3
recorJ,,, both losing to top-seed
DeSoto twice and to each other
once.
HARDEE 8, ALL SAINTS' 0
The Lady 'Cats followed
their April 7 home 10-0 Senior
victory over Palmetto with a
pair of road shut-outs. The first
was at Winter Haven against All
Saints' Academy. Sophomore
pitcher Kayla Knight recorded
10 strikeouts in the seven-
inning game.
Hardee opened with a pair of
tallies. Bailey Carlton started it
with and single and Knight fol-
lowed with another. With two
down, Parks sliced a shot to
right field, bringing both team-
mates home. All Saints' went
down one, two, three.
It was quiet for two innings
as Kate Thomas singled and
was stranded in the second


inning and Servin put a double
up the middle and was left on
base in the third. All Saints'
went down quickly in both
innings.
In the fourth, Hardee broke
loose for five runs. Coker start-
ed it with a hit to right center
and Thomas followed it with an
RBI hit to deep right field.
Addison Aubry drew a walk.
With one away Carlton and
Knight both had hits and came
around to cross home plate after
Aubry. It was 7-0.
Hardee got its final tally in
the fifth inning. Parks doubled
to right field and drifted home
on an Aubry double to right
center.
HARDEE 12
AVON PARK 0
Hardee was without the serv-
ices of Servin, who went to
Grad Bash, but the Lady
Wildcats didn't miss a beat.
Freshman Carlton had a homer
and classmate Thomas tripled
and doubled for Hardee's big
blows in the shutout victory at
Avon Park.
The Lady 'Cats opened scor-
ing in the top of the first.
Carlton was hit by a pitch and
stole second. Knight singled to
left. Carlton came home on a
hit to left field by frosh Brooke
Tyson. When Thomas doubled,
it brought Knight home.
In the second inning, Coker
was hit by a pitch, stole second
and third and scored on an Anna
Galvez sacrifice. Knight struck
out the side in the home half of
the second. It was a quiet third
inning.
In the top of the fourth, Aubry
singled to left and moved along
on an error. She came home on
a Coker hit. Coker slipped
around the baes on hits by
Galvez and Carlton. Avon Park
left one runner stranded.


Freshman Kate Thomas doubled and triple in the Avon
Park game. Here she slides home ahead of the tag.


A goal is a dream that has an ending.


COURTESY PHOTOS BY JAMES TAYLOR
Sophomore Kayla Knight recorded 18 strikeouts in the
final two games of the season.


Hardee added one run in the
fifth. Dixon tripled to left field
and scurried home on a Thomas
sacrifice. Karlee Henderson
singled up the middle but was
left at third when the inning
ended.
The Lady Wildcats went wild
in the top of the sixth. Galvez
singled and coasted home on
the Carlton homer to right field.
Knight drew a walk, Parks and


Tyson each singled and Thomas
followed it with a two-RBI
triple. She came home on an
Aubry sacrifice.
Knight had recorded eight
strikeouts in her five innings of
work. Henderson came in for
the bottom of the sixth and left
two runners aboard while get-
ting a pair of fly-balls to end the
game on the 10-run mercy rule.

Introducing Solid Foods


Here's food for thought for
many parents: Introducing solid
food is not just about what
babies eat but how they eat.
Babies need solid foods so they
can start developing the neces-
sary oral motor skills for chew-
ing. biting and transitioning to
more highly textured foods.
"It is important to take your
own baby steps when adding
solid food to your baby's diet."
says Angela Haas. MA. CCC-
SLP. pediatric feeding and
swallowing specialist. "If at
first you don't succeed, try, try
again."
Haas explains. "It can take as
many as 10 to 20 attempts for
your baby to not make a funny
face or seem to be spitting out
everything you're putting in.
Eating is a learned skill that
takes practice, patience, respect
and a big smile from Mom or
Dad with each successful bite."
But what if your infant has
already struggled with a food
allergy. such as milk? When
you have a baby with this con-
dition, the transition to solid
food can be even more stressful.
"How do I avoid another aller-
gic reaction?" and "How do I
make sure the baby's getting
enough to eat?" are common
questions.
Here are some important
things to remember:
1. It's best to wait until your
baby is 6 months old to start
solid foods; this will allow the
immune system to mature a bit
more.


A,.


2. Introduce the foods least
likely to cause allergic symp-
toms first. such as bananas, oat-
meal and applesauce.
3. Introduce only one new
food every few days and watch
for an immediate or delayed
allergic reaction.
4. Allow your baby to get
used to the taste and texture of
solid foods, as well as feeding
from a spoon. This may take
multiple attempts. Avoid force-
feeding.
5. Introduce new textures in
three stages:
Stage 1: thin and smooth
Stage 2: thicker but still
with consistent texture (avoid
irregular lumps and bumps
mixed in with puree)
Stage 3: finger foods (soft
or meltable solids).
6. As the first birthday
approaches, solid foods should
provide most of your child's
nutritional needs.
If you are concerned about
allergic reactions but want to
start on solid foods, you can
check out Neocate Nutra from
Nutricia North America. It's a
hypoallergenic, amino acid-
based, semisolid medical food
you can give to children over 6
months old. The texture is simi-
lar to yogurt and it can be eaten
by itself or mixed with other
foods.

4 STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECTION -
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE'PERiIT -:

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a
permit (No.FLA119903) to the Town of Zolfo Springs. The facility is located at 1120 State
Road 66 East, Zolfo Springs, FL 33890, in Hardee County. The Permit is for expanding
and operating a Type II, domestic wastewater treatment plant. The facility will be expand-
ed from 0.200 MGD 3MRADF to 0.400 MGD 3MRADF

The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a time-
ly petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the
Florida Statutes before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning for
a hearing are set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the infor-
mation set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General
Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within
fourteen days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than
those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes must be
filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of
the written notice, whichever occurs first.

Under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, however, any person who has
asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days
of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indi-
cated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the
appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an
administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be
only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with
Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the Department
permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is locat-
ed;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modifica-
tion of the Department action;
(f) A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal
or modification of the Department action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the Depart-ment to take.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's
action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different
from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be
affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become
a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

Mediation under Section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes is not available for this
proceeding.

The application is available for public inspection during normal business hours,
8:00 a.rm- to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the FDEP
Southwest District Office, 13051 North Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637-0926.

I'm looking forward to return-

In the meantime I've had a

have been in the forefront of
spreading Epilepsy awareness
through presentations, the inter-

talked with many people in
Hardee County, some who have
Epilepsy, and I know that many
folks remain uninformed.
I believe I can count on my
Wauchula family to help me
spread the word about Epilepsy
awareness.
Did you know Epilepsy
affects more than three million
Americans of all ages. Almost
500 new cases of Epilepsy are
diagnosed every day in the
United States, and the mortality
rate among people with Epi-
lepsy is two to three times high-
er than that of the general popu-
lation. And the side effects of
some Epilepsy drugs range
from sedation to rage.
Epilepsy is still considered a
hush-hush disease by some. A
stigma that nobody talks about.
And if someone sees a seizure,
they panic.
Yet first aid is so simple. And
you could save a person's life.
Here's some simple first aid
tips.
1. Turn the person on their
side, so they don't choke.
2. Put something soft under
their head.
3. Clear the area of both peo-
ple and objects.
4. Do not put anything inside
the person's mouth.
5. And if the seizure persists
for more than 3 minutes, call


Epilepsy
911.
When I write to different
papers many don't think it's a
serious condition or that not
many people suffer from it.
This is the blind eye people
with Epilepsy deal with on a
daily basis!
Yet, my story is one of hope.
A story of a man who lived with
seizures for 50 years.
I thank God for the miracle
He worked in my life. He put
me in a place where I was
enlightened with an alternative
to dealing with multiple seiz-
ures and its side-effects in spite
of multiple medications.
In October 2009 I went
through two 8-hour surgeries at
NYU Langone Medical Center
in New York City, and I'm now
seizure free!
Although this isn't an answer
to every seizure disorder, my
doctor wondered why no one
had ever told me about this pos-
sibility. Some doctors aren't
even sure what to do with
patients with Epilepsy. Most of
my previous neurologists in NY
and FL just kept adding more
medicine to my treatment.
With more education, aware-
ness and funding, maybe some-
one won't have to live for 50
years before they hear about the
many advances made in
Epilepsy treatments.
There is Hope!
If this letter helps just one
person, my prayers will be
answered.
Very Sincerely,
Charles Petersen
East Quoque, N.Y.

New York native and worked 10
years for the City of Wauchula.)


More Than a Dream
Trust is non-existent,
In a world that is built on lies.
Love is mere illusion,
Yet we fall for its disguise.

Faith can keep its promise,
Save its breath and sobbing speech.
Light shines on the loved,
Keeping outcasts out of reach.

Pain should last a moment,
Yet it lasts most of our lives.
Life is meant for learning,
Though Death seems quick & wise.

The rotting world around us,
With decaying hopes and dreams.
Listens to the wickedly powered,
Ignoring our pleading screams.

Fire bums to ashes,
Water washes away
Darkness silences Light,
And it keeps my tears at bay.

The rushing world around me,
It seems to never rest.
Nor does the silent cracking,
Of my heart beneath my chest.

The clock keeps ticking faster,
As if daring time to stop.
I stare at its resplendence,
Only then does my gaze drop...

Then I see myself,
My reflection on the floor.
It was in that realization,
That I found I was nothing more ...

Than a Dream.

Growers work daily under conditions few have the nerve to
withstand. Profits depend on uncontrollable items such as weather.
pests, disease outbreaks, marketing windows and a perishable crop.
The job is without a doubt a balancing act that takes nerves of
steel.
Yet with all these challenges, somehow growers. ranchers and
farmers find a way to endure the process year after year. often gen-
eration after generation. I attribute much of the success of our local
growers to their innovative thinking. Local growers have clarity to
their thought process and make problem-solving an everyday job
skill.
The Florida citrus industry is benefiting from this innovative
thinking through the Citrus Research & Development Foundation.
The foundation was formed to help growers overcome or learn to
deal with citrus greening disease, and other diseases bound to
plague our sub-tropical state with its high international travel rates
and large sea and air cargo ports.
The idea is a sound one that is beginning to show positive
results.
The citrus industry recently came together at the University of
Florida Institute of Food & Agricultural Resources' Grower
Institute. The day-long program featured presentations from a host
of IFAS researchers providing the grower community with an
update on their research projects. The projects are the result of a
research tax growers imposed upon themselves in the form of a
per-box assessment to stop Greening. About $16 million per year
funds research projects for greening, citrus canker, citrus black spot
and other diseases the industry fears it soon will have to overcome.
Studying the host plant (citrus tree), the vectors that transmit
the disease (generally an insect) and the interaction between the
two allows us to better understand the problems. This often leads
to answers.


This triangle approach provides a wealth of information that
can boggle even the sharpest mind. Research updates spur growers'
thought processes, and sometimes give them an idea to try in their
groves. Often the grower field trials help focus the research com-
munity in the right direction for a usable real-life answer.
Hundreds of growers attended. Hundreds more will benefit
from the presentations, as they will soon be published online.
The progress is causing much optimism within the grower
community. So much so, many growers are actively looking for
grove property to purchase and many are beginning to replant
acreage lost during the Citrus Canker Eradication Program. The
cost of replanting and bringing a citrus tree into maturity is very.
costly. Growers would not make the financial investment if they
didn't feel strongly they could bring the tree to productive maturi-
ty.
This also speaks to an optimism regarding the future supply
and demand for orange juice bringing and sustaining fruit prices to
a profitable level. While hearty in nature, no grower will purpose-
ly step into an expansion project without thinking he will eventu-
ally turn a profit.
In an uncertain world environment, where costs seem to con-
sistently increase and almost every needed product or service is ris-
ing, agriculturalists must strike a balance between profitable oper-
ations and acceptable consumer prices. The actions of the local
growers seem to denote this belief in a sustainable Florida citrus
industry.
We know there will always be challenges, but the Florida cit-
rus industry is poised and ready to take on whatever happens next,
to the benefit of our communities.

There's only one real sin and that is to persuade oneself
that the second-best is anything but the second-best.

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


HARDEE COUNTY FAIR RANCH RODEO THE FINALE
Now we get to the "big" cowboys and cowgirls, and how they
fared at the Haldee County Fair's annual Ranch Rodeo.
* Hardee County was represented on three teams.
7S Bar Ranch, which is sponsored by Jimmy Parker, hosted
the youngest competitor, 10-year-old Dawson Cantu (unless you
count Cayden Newsome's awesome sheep ride). This is the team
that rides under M&N Cattle in Florida Cattlemen's Association
events, except that Dawson is replaced by an adult as FCA rules
require all team members to be at least 18. What a shame, as
Dawson can outrope many of the adult team members! The other
members of this team are dad Luke Cantu, Ty Harris, and Christy
and Clay Newsome of Myakka City.
Then there was the Perry Custom Meats team, consisting of
William Perry and his neice, Hailey Andrews, and Shane Perkins,
Cody Williams and Quinn Campbell. As usual, Hailey (who is now
sporting a gorgeous new hairdo!) whipped around the barrels in
record time.
And last (but certainly not least!) was the Freely Cattle team,
consisting of Steve Freely, James Scott, wife Paula Scott as the
female member, and Mike Woodham. I must say that Paula cer-
tainly did more than her share of the work that night! While these
folks hail from Myakka City, Steve and James are long-time
employees of the Florida Institute for Neurologic Rehabilitation
here.
There were five events, which seems to be the standard for
ranch rodeos these days.
Except for the bronc-riding event, where the rider receives a
score (based one-half on the performance of the horse and one-half
on the rider's), all of these are timed events, with the lowest time
being the winner. Any time below one minute is rather good, but a
time below 30 seconds is considered smoking' hot!
William Perry handled the cattle sorting for his team, cutting
out the required three calves in 51 seconds. 7S Bar took second
place, coming in with a time of one minute, five seconds. Luke and
Dawson Cantu shared this event. Unfortunately, the calves ran
amok on Freely Cattle, so they received a no-time.


COURTESY PHOTOS BY KATHYANN GREGG
Luke Cantu maneuvers the cattle in the team-sorting
event. His 7S Bar Ranch team placed second with a time
on 1:05.


Perry Custom Meats also took first place in the double mug-
gin', with a time of one minute. 10 seconds. Freel\ Cattle came in
second with a time of one minute. 58 seconds. 7S Bar couldn't get
the job done, and received a no-time. iCla, were you watching
Luke do all the work again?)
The barrel racing followed the mutton bustin'. with Hailey
Andrews taking the lead with a run of 17.16 seconds. followed b`
Paula Scott in second with a time of 18.25 seconds. and Christ.
Newsome of 7S Bar with a time of 19.41 seconds.
Then the 7S Bar team got a surge of adrenaline and complet-
ed the team doctoring in an astounding 21.38 seconds' Freel\
Cattle came in third with a time of 53.84 seconds. but incurred a
five-second penalty for only catching one hind leg. while Perry
Custom Meats received a no-time.
Ty Harris got two bronc rides: on his 7S Bar team, w ith a score
of 61 points; and then for Freely Cattle (whose bronc rider failed to
show at the last minute) for a score of 64 points (saving Steve or
James from having to ride!). William Perry braved the back of the
bucking bronc for a score of 57 (but I'd say it was a win that he
walked away with all of his bones intact!).
The beautiful winner's silver plaque left Hardee County this
year, going to the Stevens Cattle team of Bartow. We'll just need to
bring it back here next year, Cowboys and Cowgirls!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.
Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding,
Cowboys and Cowgirls!

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER
Wodel A Gu~d 0D
M ow. eag

The cross didn't take Christ by
surprise. He came to die. But
except He were willing to lay down
His life, it couldn't be taken from
Him. And He took it up again!
His resurrection is the heart of
Christianity. Without it, life is a
hopeless end. With it, life is an
endless hope.
His resurrection is the hub of
Christianity. On it all the doctrines
of grace depend. If Christ be not
risen, the consequence isn't that
death ends all, but we're still in our
sins.
His resurrection is the hope of
Christianity. Because He rose,
Christ is with us in our perplexity to
guide us, in our sorrow to comfort
us, in our trials to strengthen us,
and at death to bring us to heaven.
He came out of the grave into my
heart. Is He in your part?


Styles are always changing.
SThough we may look
Different on the outside,
S there are old truths
"and lasting principles
that we still believe in.
i 4 Found in the Bible and
Taught through the ages,
S1, God's ways guide us
through life and give us
hope. Attend His house
of worship that "...
4 jyou may tell of them
to the next generation.
_I For this God is our God for
ever and ever; he will be
our guide even to the end."
S- (Psalm 48:13-14)

OPERATION PILL DROP
Would you know if your child was addicted to prescription


drugs?
While illegal drugs may be an issue with teens, prescription
drug abuse is on the rise.
One in five teens has abused a prescription or over-the-counter
medication, and in Florida prescription drugs have killed 300 per-
cent more people than illegal drugs. Prescription and over-the-
counter drugs have emerged as the "party" drugs of choice for
many teens. according to the Partnership for a Drug-Free America.
Prescription drugs are easier for kids to get than illicit drugs -
available mostly from their parents' medicine cabinets, but also
from friends" homes or from classmates. Children. teens or visiting
friends can easily access these drugs from a medicine cabinet or out
of the trash.
Flushing them down the toilet. however, is not a better alter-
E ative for getting rid of those unwanted medications. By flushing
medications, an extremely low level of the substance can remain in
the water supply and populate the soil.
It's important to monitor your medicine cabinets. Restrict the
availability of these substances within your home. It's important to
keep in mind that over-the-counter medications can be even more
an dangerous than street drugs if misused.
ou When used in combination with other substances, such as
ve
Sif alcohol. prescription drug use can be fatal.
IN, The Wauchula Police Department and Hardee County
Is Sheriff's Office are asking the residents of Hardee County.to help
FL keep our teens and community safe. Both agencies will be taking
I1, part in Operation Pill Drop. coming up soon.
erk Operation Pill Drop is used to prevent accidental poisoning,
set
73 abuse and misuse of prescription and over-the-counter medica-
or tions. Anyone can drop off medications, anonymously with no
ail questions asked. during Operation Pill Drop. It's a free and a con-
ed venient way of getting rid of unused, unwanted and expired med-
rd- ications.
Pet medications and sharps will also be accepted.
nts Operation Pill Drop will be taking place on Saturday, April 30,
ire between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the follow locations:

Back To Basics

I I
FUNDAMENTALS OF FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS
Keeping in mind the fundamentals of our faith in Jesus, the
first thing we'll consider is that He came to establish a New
RK Covenant.
RT Hebrews Chapter 8 tells us Christ is the "Mediator of a better
ker covenant, which.was established on better promises," verse 6.
ark Read verses 7-13. We read here that the Old Covenant was
28c with fault (verse7), therefore the New Covenant "made the first
obsolete" (verse 13).
This new law was foretold by the prophet Jeremiah in
R Jeremiah 31:31-34, so it was a fulfillment of scriptural prophesies.
This was monumental for the scholars of the day, but what about
our application?
Well, we, too, can see that it was a fulfillment of Old
Testament prophesies, but it also means a great deal for us in
another aspect. Look at the argument for the conversion of the
Gentiles with regard to circumcision in Acts 15:5. Peter responded
S that their binding of the old law of Moses onto these Gentiles was,
Verse 10, testing "God by putting a yoke on the neck of the disci-
/ ples which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear."
In Galatians 5:1-3, the same issue is debated! Paul says here
that through Christ we have been freed from this "yoke of
bondage" (circumcision in this case). But the application is that if
NG one is to keep part of the old law, then he must keep all of it.
ST That being said, Peter stated in Acts that neither the fathers nor
disciples were able to bear it. They were not able to bear the yoke
an of the old law!
on Consider what Jesus said in Matthew 11:28-30, His "yoke is
of easy" and His "burden is light."
We see that there is yet still a yoke to bear, Christ's yoke!
,er Therefore, we have commands that we are to obey in the New Law
:uit under Christ!
da, There are many who have counted the cost of discipleship as
of too heavy, but let that not be the case with you! Although there is a
49. yoke to bear, the burden is light.
the Get Back To Basics and realize the Truth revealed in the Bible.
Vas
,tal Read, study and obey God's Word!
