Commissioner Blasts 2 County Officials


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Four Hardee County commis-
sioners are in a quandary again
about their responsibilities in
avoiding Sunshine Law viola-
tions after receiving letters

EASTER CRASH


blasting two county officials.
A letter from recently elected
Commissioner Grady Johnson
was hand delivered on April 18
to the office of Lex Albritton,
county manager. Enough copies
were supplied for each of the


other members of the commis-
sion, as well as county attorney
Ken Evers and county labor
attorney Reynolds Allen.
Johnson's letter (attached to
this article) harshly criticizes
Albritton and Fire-Rescue


Chief Michael Choate. The let-
ter expresses "zero confidence
in" Albritton's administrative
abilities because he tolerates
Choate's alleged "lack of pro-
fessional, ethical and fiscal
standards."

Hardee County Fire-Rescue personnel responded to a crash scene late Sunday afternoon to find one of their own,
Lt. Nancy Snieder, involved. The single-vehicle accident occurred on State Road 64 near George Anderson Road at
around 5:15 p.m. Snieder was transported by medical helicopter to Tampa General Hospital, where she was treated
and later released. The crash was investigated by the Florida Highway Patrol, which did not provide a report by press
time.

This weekend's American
Cancer Society's Relay For Life
begins on Saturday when teams
arrive and set up camp on the
field at Wildcat Stadium behind
Wauchula Elementary School.
The relay starts with a 10
a.m. Survivor's Lap, circling
the track to celebrate the victo-
ries achieved over cancer. Some
folks will come only for this
event.
During the late morning and
afternoon, there will be relay

Mosaic

To Mine

700 Acres
By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Mosaic Company has
informed the U.S. District
Court in Jacksonville of its plan
to conduct uplands-only mining
on roughly 700 acres at the
South Fort Meade Mine exten-
sion in northern Hardee County.
The upland property, called
Area 2, is south of the 200-acre
Phase I area the company is
currently mining, after reaching
an agreement with the three
environmental groups that sued
the company and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers last year.
Minine in the Phase 1 area is
scheduled to be completed in
June.
A U.S. Appellate Court re-
cently vacated the injunction
that prohibited Mosaic from
any mining activity on the
10,856-acre extension. The
injunction remains in effect
until July 7, however, giving
time for the District Court to
readdress the issue.
After July 7, barring any fur-
ther legal action, Mosaic would
be free to mine any of the more

hosting Relay For Life events.
Saving lives from cancer starts
with one team, one dollar, one
participant, a person who wants
to make a direct contribution to
cancer research.
You don't have to be a team
member; you can't be a cancer
survivor. You just have to be
concerned enough about cancer
to get involved.
Anyone between 30 and 65
years old can participate by
coming to the stadium between


noon and 4 p.m. Saturday and
signing up to be one of the half
million people in the United
States willing to join a historic
research study called CPS-3
(Cancer Prevention Study-3).
Only people who have never
had cancer, other than basal or
squamous cell skin cancer, can
be in this study. When a person
comes to the stadium, he/she
will be asked to read and sign
an informed consent form,
See RELAY 5A


Johnson also alleges that
Albritton keeps staff away from
commissioners so they cannot
talk about "a hostile work envi-
ronment."
When asked about the letter
on Tuesday afternoon, Albritton
made two comments. "First, I
am taking no action about this
letter. Second, I have no prob-
lems with commissioners talk-
ing with any staff without
directing them."
Choate said he had read the
letter and said "I decline to
speak on the matter on the
advice of legal counsel."
BACKGROUND
Johnson has said that during
his campaign for the Commis-
sion District 4 seat, he repeated-
ly heard complaints about the
county manager.
At his first-regular commis-
sion meeting in early Decem-
ber, Johnson interrupted the
normal opening procedures of
approving the agenda and min-
utes of prior meetings. He said
there was "an overwhelming
issue that has to be taken care
of" and made a motion to termi-

Suspects In

Home Invasion
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A Wauchula business owner
returned to his home from an
evening out on Friday to find
two robbers waiting for him
inside.
Wauchula Police Chief Bill
Beattie said Robert Birge,
owner of Wauchula Machine
Shop at 212 N. Florida Ave.,
unlocked the door of his up-
stairs apartment at that location
and stepped inside to be greeted
by the butt of a shotgun.
Birge blocked the blow,
Beattie said, but the robber put
the gun barrel to his head as a
second home invader told Birge
he was going to shoot him.
The thieves ordered Birge to
the floor and demanded his
money.

Long-term Commissioner
Minor Bryant said the discus-
sion should wait until after the
holidays, and the second recent-

Birge, said she needed more
time to research the issue. At
their requests, Johnson with-
drew his motion and the meet-
ing went on.
At the first commission meet-

that 7,500 acres under the origi-
nal permit awarded in June
2010.
Mosaic previously said min-
ing only the uplands was not an
option because it was not feasi-
ble to move around the scat-
tered wetlands and mine only
the uplands.
Area 2 is comprised of 98
percent uplands with 16 acres
of wetlands on the 700-acre
site, making it economical to
mine and move around, accord-
ing to Mosaic.
Mosaic claims in a court fil-
ing it is not prohibited from
mining outside of the jurisdic-
tional areas before July 7
because such mining does not
require a Clean Water Act
Section 404 permit from the
Corps.
The filing later went on to
state "the purpose of this notice
is to advise the court and the
parties of Mosaic's Area 2
uplands mining plan in order to
avoid any misperception re-
garding activities that Mosaic
will be conducting at South Fort
Meade."
Dennis Mader, president of
People Protecting Peace River,
said the three environmental
groups in the case filed a notice
of clarification with the court
objecting to mining in Area 2
until the 90-day stay expires on
July 7 and a ruling has been
made.
"We are challenging the
assumption that Mosaic can
mine the 700 acres without
impacting the wetlands adjacent
to it," Mader said.
Mosaic anticipates one to two
years of mining in Area 2 that
would avoid any future layoffs
while the legal proceedings
continue in court.
All wetlands will be com-
pletely avoided while mining
Area 2, according to Mosaic.
Mosaic plans to begin mining
Area 2 in early July.
The company is expecting a
response from the District
Court regarding the merits
determination on the full record
in July as directed by the
Appellate Court.

The young always have the
same problem how to
rebel and conform at the
same time. They have now
solved this by defying their
parents and copying one
another.

will of the people, the majority
want it."
The other four commission-
ers, Bryant, Birge, Dale John-
son and Chairman Terry
Atchley, favored a workshop
discussion, which was set for
mid-February.
At that workshop, over two
hours were spent discussing
various aspects of the county
manager form of government
,hd specifically Albritton,
hose first-ever evaluation was
done in late September, when
he was advised of his strengths
and weaknesses and areas to
improve.
Audience comments during
that session were as critical of
the commissioners letting Al-
britton take "too much" author-
ity as they were of Albritton.
It was decided to amend the
county manager ordinance so
he could only speak at a com-
mission meeting if he was
requested to by a member of the
commission. He was to handle
the administrative business of
the county and the commission
was to set policies to direct him.
Since his election, Commis-
sioner Grady Johnson had cre-
ated a website to tell his con-
stituents what was going on,
called "what I think."
In a Jan. 20 website entry, he
took issue with Choate ap-
proaching the table and micro-
phone to challenge a statement
Johnson made about his trip to
the dispatch center in Polk
County. Johnson felt Choate
was out of line and it was
"absurd" for him to come to the
microphone without being in-
vited. Birge asked Albritton if
he had handled the matter with
his, department head, and he
replied that he had counseled
Choate and it would not occur
again. In his website, Johnson
said he brought it back to the
board to stop any future con-
duct as this. In the meeting,
Johnson said "citizens have
every right to challenge com-
missioners but we don't need
that kind of interference from
staff."
A recent Johnson website
entry had named both Bryant.
and Birge and their roles on the
commission in a generally posi-
tive way. The website entry
nevertheless, raised concerns,
particularly for Birge, who
questioned it in the February
meeting.
"It puts the rest of us in a
position. We're all walking a
fine line," Birge said, noting if
someone came up and asked for
her reaction to something on
Johnson's website, she could
not respond to her constituent
without engaging in dialogue
on it, a violation of the state's
Open Government or Sunshine
Law.
Evers explained that the digi-
tized form of opinion websitee)
doesn't violate the Sunshine
Law unless, "there is communi-
cation. If you answer that web-
site, or listen and respond to
someone who has read it, that's
communication.
"In my opinion, it's difficult
for other commissioners to not
discuss what's on that website
and yet not appear disinterested
in what people are saying to
them," commented Evers.
As the discussion continued,
Evers reiterated that communi-
cating, a non-advertised public
debate, especially of an issue
that would be likely to come up
before the commission again,
could inadvertently result in
Sunshine Law violations.
Johnson concluded by saying
his just wanted to keep his con-
stituents advised and "I don't
intend to put any commissioner
in a position."
His website continues to offer
comments on commission dis-
cussion, often ones that are like-
ly to come before the commis-


April 18, 2011
LexAlbritton
County Manager

Mr. Abritton

On Friday, the 8" of April, Mr. Choate's presentation confirmed once again why I have zero
confidence in your administrative role as county manager. For the last five years Mr. Choate has
demonstrated to me a lack of professional, ethical, and fiscal standards when addressing
matters involving any public service that is under his control and your direction.

Given the fact we are now facing a new budget year let me try and be direct as possible.

As a citizen prior to my election as a commissioner, I challenged Mr. Choate during a break
because I knew his presentation for a budget request to the Commission was dishonest and
absolutely misleading. Mr. Choate was more than happy to inform me that I did not understand
nor did I apparently know how to present a budget to the Commissioners.

After that budget session in the Commission chambers, Mr. Choate gave me a course in
presenting a budget utilizing the art of dishonest bloviating. Mr. Choate proudly proclaimed, and
I quote "You el the commissioners only what you want them to know" "You say anything you
have to, in order to get what you want That is how it is done". Mr. Choate was amused at my
failure to accept his tactics. I have listened every year to you, Mr. Albritton, justifying and
condoning conduct such as Mr. Choate's as well as other department heads while clearly
neglecting your duty to protect the integrity and the respect for a constitutional body chosen by
the people. I believe this is deliberate on your part because these are your subordinates acting
under your direction.

I am convinced your obsession with segregating staff from commissioners and the steps that
have been taken to secure this effort have been clearly over the top. Contrary to what you have
demonstrated to me, you of all people are not exempt from accountability. As far as I am
concerned your accountability on the behalf of the commissioners has been a failure.

As for staff I intend to operate under my statutory authority. I suggest you contact Mr. Reynolds
Allen and have him explain to you what you need to do to make sure that staff feels free to
comply thus eliminating any possibility of what may already be a hostile work environment.

I expect staff to comply without fear of retribution from anyone so decisions affecting our
county can be made with transparency and accountability.

Be advised I am not speaking for any other commissioner. These statements rest with me and
me alone.

sion again and again. In a late
February entry, he says "it is not
illegal in any way or-form for
the citizens of this county to
read the information on this
website, nor it illegal for any
citizen to talk to their commis-
sioners about anything they
want. How a commissioner
uses any information he or she
receives from any source is
what is at risk and it is the re-
sponsibility of the commission-
ers to know how to conduct
themselves."
CURRENT SITUATION
Johnson's letter to Albritton,
copied to all commissioners and
both attorneys, again directs
attention to the recurring theme
of termination of the county
manager, which the other com-
missioners had hoped to defer
until his next evaluation in
September.
Johnson could elicit violation
of the Sunshine Law if any of
his fellow commissioners com--
ment or respond in any way to
the letter.
Jim Rhea, a lawyer with
Florida's First Amendment
Foundation, agreed with the
cautions county attorney Evers
already relayed to commission-
ers.
The Sunshine Law allows a
commissioner to send a "writ-
ten report" to fellow commis-
sioners, Rhea said on Tuesday,
but Johnson's letter "has gone
beyond the language in the
Attorney General's Opinion on
written reports" in that it "sig-
nals" Johnson's position and
viewpoints to the rest of the
board rather than merely shar-
ing facts.

Hardee County's first "Purge
Your Pills" event will be held
this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m.
Residents are asked to bring
old or unwanted prescription
medicines to the dropoff points
at the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office, 900 E. Summit St. in
Wauchula, the Wauchula Police
Department, 128 S. Seventh
Ave. in Wauchula, or the Zolfo
Springs Sheriff's Substation,
U.S. 17 and Fifth Street in
Zolfo Springs.
Medications will be accepted
"no questions asked."
The effort reminds residents
that medicines could fall into
.the wrong hands or, if disposed
of by flushing down a toilet or
throwing into the trash, can
cause safety and environmental
health hazards.

"The best rule is for them not
to do this at all," Rhea said,
"then you don't have an issue."
Concluded Rhea, "It is best
not to stride the line. They are
public officers, and they should


avoid the appearance of any.
possible violation of the Sun-
shine Law." While this may not
be construed as a violation, "it
is certainly close enough to be

duct-taped the victim's arms in
front of him, then used a black
zip tie to secure his arms to his
belt. His ankles also were taped
together, the chief described.
The home invaders stole
Birge's wallet and some cash
that was in the room. They then
took his guns, his cell phone
and the keys to his car, telling
him they would park it at the
Raceway gas station in Bartow.
The two men then fled the
scene.
Beattie said Birge took about
two hours to retrieve a pair of
scissors from a bathroom using
his mouth, and then ultimately


cutting the restraints which
bound him.
Then, the chief said, Birge
ran to the Police Department,
empty.at the time because offi-
cers working at that hour were
out on the streets. From there,
Birge headed to McDonald's,
the only open business, and
called police.
Police are searching for two
black suspects. The investiga-
tion remains open and active,
Beattie said. Footprints were
found at the scene.
Birge's car also was recov-
ered, in an orange grove off
Hobb Road in Hardee County.


THE BODY OF CHRIST
Jesus came to die for our sins, and in doing so established a
better Covenant.
But what else did He establish? Please turn in your Bible to
Ephesians, Chapter One.
Paul begins this epistle by praising God as the Father of Jesus
Christ (verse 3), and states in verse 7, "In Him we have redemption
through His blood." After making mention of his prayers offered
on their behalf, he states in verses 20-23, "which He worked in
Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His
right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and
power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not
only in this age but also in that which is to come. And He put all
things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to
the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in
all."
We read here that God seated the resurrected Christ at His right
hand, and established Him as the head of the church, which is His
body.
But what is the body (the church) comprised of?
Read 1 Corinthians 12:24-27: "but our presentable parts have
no need. But God composed the body, having given greater honor
to that part which lacks it, that there should be no schism in the
body, but that the members should have the salne care for one
another. And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it;
or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. Now
you are the body of Christ, and members individually."
Who are the individual members here? Look to see who the
recipients were of this letter at the beginning of Chapter 1.
Examine verse 2. Read!
This letter was addressed to the church at Corinth, "to those
who are sanctified in Jesus, called to be saints, with all who in
every place call on the name of Jesus Christ our Lord." So, the
saints comprise the body! The saints comprise the church!'
Many folks have a preconceived notion of what the church is.
God's Word reveals that it's the body of Christ, and is made up of
the members who've been sanctified. The church we read about in
the Bible is not a man-made organization nor does it have any other
head than Jesus Christ.
Get Back To Basics concerning what the Bible reveals about
the church. Read, study and obey God's Word!

Missing


Girls


Found

by CYNTHIA KR4HL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two little girls who sneaked
away from their class while on
the Zolfo Springs Elementary
School playground Friday
morning were found unharmed
hours later.,
According to the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office, two
third graders in Mrs. Cobb's
class, broke away from their
group at about 11 a.m. Cobb
saw the pair standing by the
fence and told them to come
back to the group.
When they did not respond,
she sent another student over to
tell the girls to come back, but
they were gone.

school, Ralph attended Em-
ory at Oxford, Emory Uni-
versity and Parsons College

On Aug. 1, 1963, Ralph

the White House Communi-
cations Agency. After return-
ing to Fort Meade, Ralph
worked for the family busi-

and then returned to Polk
County in 1978, where he

Cobb went to the spot, but did
not find them there.
Principal Melanie Henderson
said the two climbed a six-foot
chain-link fence and left cam-
pus through a wooded area. The
teacher, she said, knew immedi-
ately that they were gone and
initiated a search.
Law enforcement was called,
she said.
"Multitudes of law enforce-
ment personnel, school employ-
ees, PTO volunteers, the entire
Maintenance Department,
EMTs and other community
members took part in the cam-
pus search as well as a search of
local wooded areas surrounding
the school," Henderson de-
scribed.
The girls were found at 1:35
p.m. by Hardee County Drug
Task Force Sgt. Eddie Davis.
They were hiding in the woods
near Terrier Road and State
Road 64, and were returned to
the school.
Meanwhile, Henderson said,
the school had been put on
lockdown and parents received
a phone message informing
them of the situation.
"At ZSE, we are just glad to
know that these two girls are
safe," she said. "What started
out as a fun little escape from
school did put them in a vulner-
able position. We were very for-


tunate that they were quickly
located by the Sheriff's Office
rather than by someone out
there that may have been look-
ing to take advantage of two
young girls all alone."
Henderson had accolades for
the Sheriff's Office, the mainte-
nance workers at the Educa-
tional Facilities Department,
the school's faculty and staff,
and all the volunteers who
joined in the search.
When school opened on
Tuesday following the Easter
holiday, the pair were back in
class and "greatly remorseful,"
the principal said.
Schools Superintendent Dav-
id Durastanti said the third
graders thought "they were
going to have a little adven-
ture." Fortunately, it ended
well, he said.
"We're just glad to get them
back," said Durastanti.
Sheriff's Maj. Randy Dey
lauded the search effort, saying
"everyone came together."
Extra' deputies, detectives,
Drug Task Force members,
Fire-Rescue personnel and
Educational Facilities staff
"worked together and mobi-
lized immediately to find these
two little girls," he said.
"It was a consolidated effort,"
Dey concluded.

re-elected commissioners and
removed a fifth who had violat-
ed the state Sunshine Law and
appeared before the court in
2010.
Those ousted were Val
Patarini, Seat 1; Dan Graham,
Seat 3; David Royal, Seat 4;
Clarence Bolin, Seat 5; and
Jerry Conerly, At-Large Seat 7.
Remaining on the commission
were recently elected Russell
Smith, Seat 2; and John Free-
man, Seat 6.
Patarini's seat has been filled
by Patty Detwiler, who had no
opposition in her bid for Seat 1
and takes it automatically.
A preview of the remaining
10 candidates will be in next
week's issue, midway in the
week of early voting and before
Election Day.
There are four candidates for
Seat 3. Richard Keith Nadasky
Jr. is a Mosaic Fertilizer em-
ployee who goes by his middle
name to differentiate from his
schoolteacher father. Donna
Steffens works in real estate
with Keller Williams Realty.
Clifton N. "Nick" Tim-merman,
a former Hardee County com-
missioner, is a local opto-
metrist. And, Graham, owner of
DeSoto Home Health Care,
hopes to regain his seat as Gov.
Scott has said he will not again
remove a commissioner that the
voters choose to re-elect.
There are two candidates for
Royal's Seat 4. They are: Ken-
ny Harold Baker, a minister and
insurance agent; and Scott D.
Lang, business owner at Lang's
Service Center.
Two candidates want Bolin's
Seat 5. They are Robert Duane
"Bob" McAllister, who has
worked in both industrial con-
struction and the cattle industry;

Seeking Conerly's at-large
Seat 7, are Pam Belflower, co-
owner of Belflower's Floors
Direct; and Frederick M.

with Jim See Realty Inc.
If elected, Baker or Knight
could have to relinquish a seat
on the county's 15-member
Economic Development Coun-
cil to avoid dual office-holding.

"Time is of the essence to

Generation,' who gave their
hearts and lives so Americans
have the freedoms they do
today," said Rotarian Sue Birge.
Although all WW II vets will

The Fab Four are back!
Revolution, the band that
goes beyond Beatlemania, will
perform Monday, May 9, at
7:30 p.m. in the Theatre for the
Performing Arts on South
Florida Community College's
Highlands Campus.
Relive the music of one of the
greatest rock 'n' roll groups of
all time.
Travel back to the 1960s,
where the performance begins
with a recreation of the famous
1964 Ed Sullivan television
show introducing the Fab Four
to America. Hear the songs that
provided the soundtrack for an
era, such as "Hey Jude," "She
Loves Me," "I Want To Hold
Your Hand," "Penny Lane,"
"That Thing You Do," "Yester-
day," "Strawberry Fields For-
ever," "Sgt. Pepper," "Revo-
lution" and many more.

worldwide touring show that
captures the Beatles with
authentic instruments, cos-

sonalities of the Beatles while
wearing slick, collarless suits,
Beatle boots, and mop-tops.
They go beyond the wigs and
mere impersonations of most
Beatle acts; they capture the
very essence of four young men
whose music continues to win
the hearts of millions.
Portraying John "Lennon is
Tim Piper, who was selected by
Hollywood casting directors to
portray Lennon in the E!
Channel Television production
of the "John Lennon Story."
He brings authenticity, compas-
sion and power to the role of the
late great Lennon, keeping the
legend alive.
Jim Neil portrays Paul Mc-
Cartney. Fans are often im-
pressed by his powerful, realis-
tic vocal ability. His talent
extends beyond the essentials of
mere looks. He is a talented
bass player, vocalist and record-
ing engineer who runs his own
studio. Neil has performed in
many original and tribute
bands. His baby-faced charm,
skill and attention to musician-
ship make him a great choice


for portraying McCartney.
Greg Piper as George Har-
rison is an outstanding guitarist
and has been a professional
musician, singer and actor since
the age of 11. He has toured the
world since 1989 portraying the
mystical Beatle.
Completing this quartet is
Mike Sarafian as Ringo Starr.
He provides the unique yet
undeniable backbeat as the one
and only Starr. He has been
hailed as the best in the busi-
ness in replicating Starr's drum-
ming style. Beatle drummers
and celebrities alike from
around the world come to him
for tips and advice on Starr's
style of playing.
The performance is a benefit
concert for the Avon Park
Breakfast Rotary and SFCC
Performing Arts.
Tickets range from $25 to
$35 and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven
days a week, at performances.-
southflorida.edu. Tickets may
also be purchased by calling the
SFCC Box Office at (863) 784-

The 'Fab Four' will perform at South Florida Community
College's Theater for the Performing Arts on May 9.

The five weekend run of "The Store Of Jesus" passion play
drew an attendance of 15,000 reported producer Rev, Mike
Graham, 58. The seating capacity of the Hardee County
Cattlemen's Arena is 1,600.
The 10-day event had a cast of about 250 people and 140 ani-
mals.
Next year the theme will be "The Story of Noah" and his ark.
"The Story of Jesus" was featured in a Page-1 story in The
New York Times on April 21.

The 7th Annual Music At The Melon Barn will be held Friday
at 7 p.m. along Johnston Road east of Zolfo Springs. The event of
fellowship and friendship is hosted by the Wilbur Robertson fami-
ly and is free of charge.

The local blueberry harvest is underway. Clear Springs is
growing 400 acres of blueberries in south central Florida.
Delois Johnson has a three-acre farm in the Popash area and
reported prices started at $8 a pound and this week dropped to
$4.25. Break-even is considered to be about $3 a pound. There is a
big yield this year. Blueberries are considered to be a super healthy
fruit.

Hardee County has continued its recent mild and dry weather.
The valencia orange harvest continues. A trend in America is a con-
tinued rise in per capital consumption of blueberries and a'small
decline in orange juice consumption.

A pill drop-off will be held in Hardee County on Saturday
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the sheriff's offices in Wauchula and Zolfo
Springs and the police station in Wauchula. No questions will be
asked.

A ceremony to honor World War II veterans from Hardee
County will be held at 8 a.m. Sunday at the Wauchula State Bank
Flag Pole. Details are inside. This is a Rotary Club project.

The spring gobbler season ended Sunday. This gives hunters a
chance to enjoy the woods at a beautiful time of year and to try to
bag a wild male Osceola turkey.
It took several hunts but I finally got a gobbler this season. So
did my sons David, Michael and Jeremy. Jonathan spent most of
his spring at UF studying tough classes and will have to try again
next year.

There are more peaches being grown in Florida in recent years
from new varieties that have been developed for the Sunshine
State. Georgia, however, remains the Peace State.

Steedley In College Playoffs


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Former Lady Wildcat softball
star Chelsey Steedley is helping
Chipola College in Marianna
seek a national championship.
The daughter of Tim and
Bettye Steedley of Zolfo
Springs, the college freshman
played travel ball and for the
Lady Wildcats last season. It's a
vastly different story this
spring.
The Lady Indians are co-
champions in the Panhandle
Conference for Coach Belinda
Hendrix, who recently celebrat-
ed her 300th college victory. By
the end of her seventh season,
she had a 310-86 record, includ-
ing a national championship for
Chipola in 2007.
This year, Chipola, in regular
season play, is 43-10 and will
play as top seed in the state
tournament in Pensacola which
begins tomorrow (Friday).
Chipola split a double-header
with Northwest Florida State
College in Niceville in mid-
April. The Lady Raiders won
the first game 3-2, but the Lady
Indians came back to win the
second game 4-3. Both teams
finished at 13-3 in Panhandle
Conference play.
Although they are co-chapm-
pions, Chipola (46-11) won the
number one seed over


Chelsey Steedley
Northwest State (39-7) by the
total number of runs allowed in
conference play.
Steedley, a freshman, No. 18,
plays shortstop and outfield.
Considered an at-large players,
she is one of Chipola players
earning second-team honors on
the All-Panhandle Teams
named on April 18. Four of her
teammates were named to the


COURTESY PHOTO


first team, and five others
joined her on the second team.
Two made honorable mention.
Hendrix was named conference
coach of the year.
Chipola's schedule stretched
from a nine-game preseason
tournament in Nevada in late
January to the conference
championship doubleheader
last week.

Lady 'Cats Bow Out


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"I want to see a trend at the
high school, a championship,"
Varsity Lady Wildcat softball
coach Shari Knight, is not dis-
couraged, although "It was a
disappointing way to end our
season."
Playoffs began with fifth-
seeded Sarasota Booker and
fourth-seeded Bradenton South-
east squaring off last Monday
night in Bradenton. Southeast
won 26-8.
That left Southeast to play the
early game Tuesday night in
Wauchula against top-seed De-
Soto, who won 20-0.
The Tuesday late game, be-
tweei second-seed Sarasota
Cardinal Mooney and third-
seed Hardee, started tough.
Second-year coach Knight was
pitted against 16-year coach
Don Congdon. The teams had
ended tied on district records,
each at 5-3. Mooney (12-8) and
Hardee (10-8) flipped a coin.
Mooney won the home field
advantage, batting last. That
didn't prove to be a big deal.
Hardee got going out of the
chute. With two down, Elvira
Servin drew a walk and almost
got picked off in a run-down but
was safe at second. Brooke
Tyson singled to left field to put
runners on the corners.
Servin scored on a passed
ball while Kate Thomas was at
bat. Thomas then drew a walk.
Courtney Parks dropped a shot
in short right field, allowing
Tyson to come home. Hardee


led 2-0.
Mooney returned the favor,
picking up a pair of runs in the
home half of the first on a pair
of hits and an error. It was 2-2.
Hardee was at bat in the top
of the second. Karlee Hender-
son had singled, Addison Au-
bry was aboard and Bailey
Carlton walked, loading the
bases when lightning threat-
ened, forcing a break in the
action.
About 25 minutes later, when
play resumed, the momentum
began to shift. The next batter
was out, ending the top of the
second. The game stayed 2-2
until the bottom of the fourth,
but the Lady Cougars had
become more confident, putting
two more runs on the board on a
combination of hits before
Hardee got a double play to end
Mooney's efforts.
Aubry and Arissa Camel
were left on base in the top of
the fourth, while Mooney com-
bined hits and walks to grow to
a 9-2 advantage.
Hardee picked up a run in the
top of the sixth as Thomas and
Parks got aboard. Thomas
scored on an Anna Galvez hit.
Mooney responded with three
more runs in the bottom of the
sixth to make it 12-3.
Hardee desperately tried to
rally in the top of the seventh.
Kayla Knight singled just inside
the right field line. A Tyson hit
hopped off the third sacker's
glove. Thomas dropped a shot
in left field and Henderson took
another to right field. Two runs


came in, but it was too little, too
late as the third out ended the
game, with Mooney winning
12-5.
The Cougars returned on
Thursday to play DeSoto in the
district championship game. It
was a vain effort as the Lady
Bulldogs won 10-0.
"The last two seasons the jun-
'ior high has ended the seasons
with championships. That's
what I want at the high school,"
repeated Coach Knight. She's
already looking forward to next
season. Losing only two starters
to graduation, catcher Servin
and outfielder Caylah Coker,
Knight has a dozen returnees,
plus "an incoming freshman
class with a good group of ball
players with experience."
Hardee will play in a differ-
ent division next year as the
Florida High School Athletic
Association has redistricted,
adding several classes. Hardee
moves from Class 3A 11 to
Class 5A, Region 3, District 10
with Auburndale, Lake Wales

Jewish Temple Will Be Rebuilt

Is it scriptural that the Jewish temple will be rebuilt in the
last days? It is said that before Jesus returns, a temple will
be constructed on the site where just so happens a Muslim
Mosque now sits. It is thought that in 2nd Thessalonians
Chapter 2, for the antichrist to sit in the temple, there must
be a temple for him to sit. Jesus spoke of another temple
that He was going to build and it was "not" going to be
built with stone or nails, but of "living stones" (I Peter 2:5).
In Ephesians 2:19-22, it shows the components of this new
temple to be "His people" resting on the foundation of the
apostles and prophets with Jesus Himself being the chief
cornerstone. When the veil of the temple ripped in two at
Jesus death, the sacrificial service in an earthly temple
expired by limitation for it was Jesus that was symbolical-
ly pointed to by the temple services. So in view of the
scriptures, it is easy to see that for the antichrist to sit in the
temple, all that he would have to do is be someone that
occupies the position of supreme authority over worldwide
Christian affairs and is thought of as such by a large num-
ber of professed Christian followers. Related scriptures
show his influence is very strong over secular matters as
well.

WHEELS WINNERS


This week in history, as that polluted the Peace River
researched from the archival pay for damages. In the Senate,

vocate, the Hardee County Wauchula, introduced a bill for

75 YEARS AGO
Little Miss Glendora Mad-
dox, 4-year-old daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Glen Maddox of this
city, died at the Bartow hospital
last Sunday after a short illness
of diphtheria. Her mother will
be remembered as the former
Miss Wilma Peeples. Funeral
services are awaiting the recov-
ery of the child's father, very ill
in the same hospital and not
able to be told of his child's
passing.
A freak tornado swept out of
the stormy sky last Friday and
struck the farm of Ray Rainey,
several miles west of town. The
whirlwind destroyed Rainey's
barn and left part of it 25 feet
away from its foundation in the
adjoining grove of F.G. Janes
Sr. The tornado was followed
by large pellets of hail which
played havoc with Rainey's
cucumber and tomato crops.
Refinancing debts through
the Farm Credit Administration
has saved Hardee farmers more
than $18,100 a year in interest
alone. Over $479,000 of farm
debts with interest rates of 7.8
percent were refinanced with
long-term loans of five percent
or less.

Freshwater Fish Commission to
restore the river "as a suitable
habitat for fish and restock it."
A Wauchula landmark is
scheduled to go this week. The
Herald-Advocate sounded the
death knell for one of the oldest
landmarks of Hardee County,
the present Herald-Advocate
building on South Seventh
Avenue. Local builder H.L.
Bostick has contracted to do the
construction of the combination
printing office and newspaper
plant at an estimated cost of
$22,000. The present wood-

At long last, a traffic light is
being installed at the dangerous
intersection of U.S. 17 and
REA Road. It will have some
"burn-in" time as a blinker
before going to full operation
within two weeks. The Wal-
Mart Superstore is nearing
completion, Murphy Oil gas
station will start construction,
and a Wendy's restaurant is to
be in place in the next few
months. Winn-Dixie has been
on the northeast corner of that
intersection since 1999.
Hardee County is going into
the sewer business. The Hardee
County Commission authorized
its consultant to go out for bids
for the estimated $1.6 million
wastewater treatment plant off
Vandolah Road just west of
Wauchula Municipal Airport.
Grants from the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs and
U.S. Department of Commerce
will fund most of the project,
which will service the airport,
Vandolah Power plant and
Florida Institute for Neurologic
Rehabilitation, which is adding
a skilled nursing facility and a
pediatric wing.
Although the Bowling Green
Commission has voted to dis-
band its recreation committee
for lack of attendance, the city
will have its Fourth of July fire-
works, said committee chair-
man Lloyd Kersey.

A 12-member task force was
appointed Monday to work
toward getting a mega-airport
in northwest Hardee County, or
at the very least to expand the
existing Wauchula Municipal
Airport. Wauchula will be rep-
resented by Police Chief Bill
Beattie, who has aviation expe-
rience. Present members of the
Wauchula Airport Authority are
Carl Saunders, Lavon Cobb,
Bill Mulcay, Dale Johnson,
Merle Albritton, Bill Crews and
Colemon Best.

Conscience is the voice of
the soul; the passions are
the voice of the body.

BUILDING BLOCKS
Building construction en-
forcement dates back 4,000
years. In 1630, Plymouth,
Mass., required thatched roofs
be changed to wood. In early
America, George Washington
and Thomas Jefferson encour-
aged the development of mini-
mum building standards that
would ensure health and safety,
including height and area limi-
tations.
The first "modern" code in
1905 laid the foundation for
testing, specifications and for-
mats leading to today's efforts
to reduce fire hazards and pro-
vide for the public welfare.

Track Dropped In Regionals


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Their best wasn't quite good
enough.
The trio of District 10 win-
ners and seven teammates
which represented Hardee at the
huge Region 3 meet at Astro-
naut High School in Titusville
last weekend faced stiff opposi-
tion.
Seniors Carl Brown Jr.,
Ashley Louis, Yesenia Vargas,
Mylekia Stevenson and Rei-
mundo Garcia missed their last
opportunity to go to the state
competition. Others will have
another chance next season.
Freshmen Brandon Beatty and
Lucious Everett may have
many more chances, as they've
seen the caliber of opponents
they could face.
This year's Class 2A Region
3 meet on Saturday was one of
the toughest, featuring athletes
from Cocoa, Wesley Chapel,
Lely, Strawberry Crest, Sara-
sota Booker, Anclote, South-
east, Lennard, Dunbar, Clewi-
ston, Golden Gate, Immokalee,
George Steinbrenner, St. Pet-
ersburg Catholic, Berkeley
Prep, Cardinal Mooney, Tampa
Catholic, Lincoln Park, Rock-
ledge, Middleton, South Fort
Myers, Holy Names Academy,
Gateway Charter, Clearwater
Central, Cypress Lake, Estero,
Robinson, DeSoto, Hernando,
Bishop Verot, Satellite, Pasco,
Cocoa Beach, Island Coast,
Heritage, Jesuit, LaBelle and


host Astronaut as well as
Hardee.
Against such numbers and
odds. the Hardee contingent did
well. Just getting out of the pre-
liminaries was an accomplish-
ment.
Brown did the best individual-
ly. He placed sixth in the pre-
liminaries of the 110 high hur-
dles to qualify for the finals.
where he just missed state by
placing fifth. He improved his
time in the prelims of 15.70 to
15.39 in the finals. Freshman
Everett placed 14th, the only
freshman in the event.
Garcia placed 13th in the
800-meter run in a personal best
of 2:06.66. mere 10 seconds off
the winning pace. Parkinson
placed 14th in the preliminaries
of the 300 high hurdles, setting
a new personal best of 44.86.
Garcia and Parkinson joined
junior Augustine Ancelmo and
soph Octavio Alvarez to be 15th
in the 4x400 relay in a new time
of 3:43.58.
Parkinson, Garcia, Ancelmo
and freshman Brandon Beatty
combined efforts for a new per-
sonal record of 8:57.48 to place
12th in the 4x800 relay. An-
celmo also upped his personal
best in the pole vault, going
from his previous 10-0 to a new
high of 11-06 to place eighth.
Beatty was the lone freshman
in placing 12th in the 1,600-
meter run in a new personal
best of 4:49.82, completing
against 10 seniors, four juniors


New Benefits May Help

Keep Seniors Healthier


Staying healthy just got a lit-
tle easier if you're 65 or older.
That's because Medicare now
covers many wellness and pre-
ventive services free of charge.
Older Americans can get impor-
tant screenings, immunizations
and an annual "wellness"
checkup without spending a
dime, under provisions in the
Affordable Care Act that took
effect in January 2011.
"These services have the
potential to add years to your
life-and the life of your loved
ones," said AARP board mem-
ber and geriatric specialist
William J. Hall, M.D. "We urge
older Americans to get all the
preventive services their doc-
tors recommend."
For the first time, Medicare
will pay entirely for a host of
vital screenings-for colon and
other cancers, diabetes, heart
disease, osteoporosis and other
chronic conditions.
On top of that. Medicare now
covers a yearly "wellness"
exam that can spotlight steps
you need to take to take charge
of your health. As part of this
checkup, you can work with
your doctor on developing your
own prevention plan.
These new benefits can make
a difference in people's lives,
because they enable older
Americans to get the preventive
care they need without worry-
ing about cost. Research has
shown that individuals are less
likely to get health screenings
when they have to pay for them.
Many older Americans have not
been getting important preven-
tive services, according to the
Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention. For example, mil-
lions of older people at risk for
diabetes and colorectal cancer
have not been screened for

THE FCA RACE HAS BEGUN!
The opener for the Florida Cattlemen's Association ranch
-odeos is the Polk Count\ Cattlemen's, held in Bartow this year on
Feb. 12. It was a beautiful Florida day. and the clear blue skies with
the sun shining down on us helped take the coolness of winter out
of the air.
But nothing could dampen the excitement, as the 12 teams of
four men/one woman took turns at five events calf branding,
wild-cow milking, double muggin'. stampede race, and wild-colt
riding. (These are all events used at the state finals.)
Corey Fussell was supposed to ride on the W&W Groves &
Cattle team, but he had to take an exam for school. That made the
Hardee County presence onl\ the Belflower Cattle team: Jay
Belflower; Dennis Carlton; his fiancee, Chass Bronson; her broth-
er, Slade, filling in for Josh McKibben; and Pat Thomas.
And what a day they had, taking second place in the double
muggin' event with a time of 1:18.81 and first-place finishes in
both wild-colt riding with a time of 39.7 seconds and calf branding,
with a time of 37.05 seconds. The female team members, as the
branders, hope that they don't have far to run in this latter event.
Chass got her wish, as the team caught the calf less than 10 feet
from the branding circle!
And this was good enough to take home the winner's belt
buckles and guarantee they'll be riding in Kissimmee in October.
Congratulations, y'all!
The following week, Feb. 16-17, the FCA qualifier was held
in Tampa as part of the Florida State Fair. There were four per-
formances, with 3-5 teams riding in each. The Belflower Cattle
team, this time riding under its usual name of Audubon Ranch, took
third place overall, winning the double-muggin' event with an awe-
some time of 29.31 seconds!
In addition to this team, Hardee County was represented on
three others: Stevens Land & Cattle, with Charles Robert Stevens
III, Bobby Joe Fulford, Christi Pryor and two newcomers; Carlton
Ranches, with Dale Carlton, Matt Carlton, Trae Adams, Clint
Boney, and Kelly Godwin of Myakka City filling the position of
female team member; and M&N Cattle (featured in the last column
from the Hardee County Fair's ranch rodeo), with Luke Cantu, Ty
Harris, Christy and Clay Newsome, and Dawson Cantu's adult
replacement, Justin Clark.
Carlton Ranches had a great day in certain events, completing
the calf branding in 47.81 seconds, the wild-cow milking in 28.19
seconds, double muggin' in 39.78 seconds, and team doctoring in
24.75 seconds (which includes a five-second penalty for catching
only one hind leg). However, other teams performed with even
lower times, and.Matt Carlton had a "mild" bronc, leaving this
usual high-scorer with only a 57 in his bronc ride. This goes to
show if you want to win, you have to place high in every event!

M&N Cattle did the .vild-cow milking in an astounding 16.38
seconds. but still got beat out by another team. TV's bronc ride was
68 points. one of the highest. Now. if Clay Neewsome had left his
hands off hi-, wire. Christ\. in the stampede race, she would have

Ste'en- Land & Cattle completed the calf branding in 46.59
second,. the '. id-cow milking in 25.65 seconds. team doctoring in
an awesom'e 14 ; seconds. and Christi Pryor won the stampede
race iand a $25 gift certificate). If onl; Charles Robert had been
able to sta'. on the back of his horse (he fell off while roping!) as
well as he rode the saddle bronc (I believe he was horizontal most
of the time' ma,.be this team could have placed.
Oh. I reot. Core\ Fussell rode this ranch rodeo. on the SMR
Cattle team. The\ completed the wild-cow milking in 17.97 sec-
onds. and the team doctoring in 1:4.3 plus a five-second penalty for
onlh one hind leg catch. Cousin Robert Fussell had a great score of
73 in the >addle-bronc riding.
Yeeha'.'.' The race is on to Kissimmee!

FRIDAY
But God has a way to make
people right with Him, with-
out obeying the Law.... God
makes people right with
Himself through their faith in
Jesus Christ. This is true for
all who believe in Christ,
because all people are the
same.
Romans 3:21a,22 (NCV)

SATURDAY
(God says), "I can't stand
your religious meetings. I'm
fed up with your confer-
ences and conventions.
...I've had all I can take of
your noisy ego-music. When
was the last time you really
sang to Me? Do you know
what I want? I want justice -
oceans of it. I want fairness -
rivers of it. That's what I
want. That's all I want."
Amos 5:21,23-24 (ME)

SUNDAY
Grace and peace from God
the Father and our Lord
Jesus Christ, who gave
Himself for our sins to deliv-
er us from the present evil
age, according to the will of
our God and Father.
Galatians 1:3-4 (RSV)

MONDAY
The Lord made the earth by
His power, and He preserves
it by His wisdom. He has
stretched out the heavens
by His understanding. Whbn
He speaks, there is thunder
in the heavens. He causes
the clouds to rise over the
earth. He sends the lightning
with the rain and releases
the wind from His storehous-
es.
Jeremiah 51:15 (NLT)

TUESDAY
For the word of God is living
Sand active. Sharper than any
double-edged sword, it pen-
etrates to dividing soul and
spirit; it judges the thoughts
and attitudes of the heart.
Nothing in all creation is hid-
den from God's sight.
Everything is uncovered and
laid bare before the eyes of
Him to whom we must give
an account.
Hebrews 5:12-13 (NIV)

WEDNESDAY
Then the Lord took Abram
outside and said to him,
"Look up into the sky and
count the stars if you can.
That's how many descen-
dants you will have!" And
Abram believed the Lord,
and the Lord counted him as
righteous because of his
faith.

Donate


To Save


A Life

If offered an opportunity to
save a life, would you?
Ninety percent of Americans
say "yes" to organ donation, yet
only about 30 percent of Flor-
ida's population has signed up
with the state's organ and tissue
donor registry.
April is Donate Life Month.
Those willing to donate their
organs and/or tissues at their
time of death can join Florida's
donor registry online at Donate-
LifeFlorida.org or when getting
or renewing their driver license.
One organ donor can save the
lives of eight people, and
impact nearly 50 more through
tissue donation.
There are more than 110,000
people nationally who are wait-
ing for a life-saving transplant --
more than 4,000 of them are in
Florida. Everyone has an op-
portunity to become a hero by
saying "yes" to organ and tissue
donation, says LifeLink of
Florida.

JAZZ IT UP! Jazzercise has now found a home of its own.
The fitness-a*d-fun classe&have moved from Florida's First
Assembly of God n Wauchula to the former Cycole's building on
State Road 66 in Zolfo Springs.
Heartland Jazzercise Center owner and instructor Ann Marie
Schneider had opened the new business using the church's facili-
ties in August of last year. Originally from California, Schneider
came here to be near family. She said she was blessed by the com-
fort she received at the church, as she'did not know many people in
the county.
The only problem she faced at that location was a lack of
"growing room." She had a nice big stage with a clean cement
floor, but she had to schedule classes to fit within the church's
schedule, which didn't leave her very much time, she explained.
Soon came the time when Jazzercise needed to leave the
church facility. "It was my tiPV to move on," Schneider said.
"Having to leave gave me my 6 d~ little push to getting my own
center, and I found the great cfr I have now."
Danielle Ward, a customer'End friend, told Schneider that her
father-in-law Cole Ward's old nrotorcycle shop could be of great
use to her. She only had to clean ilup for her new center. Schneider
agreed, finding that Cycole's was her "perfect place." She now
rents the building from the Wards.

Greetings from Fort Green!
We certainly "had a great
Easter service at church Sunday
morning. The church was full,
and there are always so many
families that come home for
Easter. Randi Sasser was home
and she and Ashlee Abbott were
talking and they both will grad-
uate from college within the
next couple of weeks. Way to
go, girls. Bayleigh Pierstorff
was also home and will com-
plete one year in the next two
weeks, and then she will be
home. Before we know it she
will also be graduating.
The Easter egg hunt was ter-
rific. I was unable to attend but
I stopped in for a few minutes.
Nancy McQuaig made some
delicious Jell-O Easter eggs.
They just taste better in this
shape!
Pat Gugle had decorated the
cupcakes in cute ways, which I
would never have thought of,
and Kara Spenser had made
some kind of cakes on a stick
with icing that made the cake
look sort of like a sucker. Judy
Bargeron did her Story of Jesus
using forgotten cookies. It is a
good way to tell the young peo-
ple and one they will remember.
Melissa Davenport had all
kinds of ideas to make the party
terrific for the young and old
alike.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Betty
Carlton. She made her final
journey last Thursday night just
before midnight. I worked with
Betty when we both worked at
Hardee Memorial Hospital back
in the '70s. Then sympathy is
also extended to the family of
Curry Raley. I did not know
about this until I read The
Herald-Advocate. It is a shame
*we don't get the Tampa Tribune
in Hardee County.
They say bad things or good
things come in threes, and
another family that we extend
sympathy to is the family of
Rosa Lee Putnel. She went
home last Saturday night. Her
daughter is Freida Crawford.
Nancy McQuaig had an aunt in
West Virginia who passed away
last Saturday, so at Fort Green,
we don't follow that old saying.
Everyone is talking about
hard times, with the price of gas
etc. Well, it must be hard in the
animal world also! The other


day I was driving lown uoc
Coil Road and saw about 20
buzzards devouring one small
coon. Also, I am seeing more
people stopping along the road
and picking up soft-shell tur-
tles. Kay said in the olden days
when times got hard, people!
would pay for groceries with a
large turtle and get two or three:
small ones for change!
Andrew Casey and Valerio
Hernandez both made the honor
roll, and Andrew did really
good in the spelling bee. Con-
gratulations, boys.
Little Alex McQuaig was sur-
prised within a birthday cake last
Wednesday night at our church
supper. His granny, Nancy Mc-
Quaig, makes good cakes and
surprised him with one. We all
sang to him.
I don't know how many peo-
ple have noticed it but I bet the
tourists traveling down U.S. 17
South have gotten a big laugh.
The Relay For Life sign over
the highway near the Panda
Restaurant lists the dates as
April 31 and May 1. I guess half
right is OK!
Earl Bergeron's brother-in-
law is seriously ill, as is Brother
Jimmy Miller. Please remember
to pray for them.
I visited with Mrs. Walker
last week. She will be 92 on her
next birthday and grew up in a
community named Welcome.
We were talking about dirt:
roads, etc. and she recalled a
time when she was young and
home from school because she
was sick. Her mother walked
down the dirt road to get the
mail from the box on the hard
road and Mrs. Walker heard her
yelling for her to bring the shot-
gun, as there was a rattlesnake
in the road.
Mrs. Walker took the gun to
her mother, who had never shot
it but said, they say it kicks.
Mrs. Walker said, well you
sioot it and I will stand behind
you to catch you if the gun
kicks you down! Her mama
killed the snake and said,
pshaw, that gun didn't kick at
all! Mrs. Walker is a delight to
visit and always has some inter-
esting topics!
Please remember the Home-
coming at Fort Green at 10:30
a.m. tis Sunday. Ya'll come.
Please pray for one another,
our nation and the military.


"positive atmosphere," according to Schneider. Among its features
are an aerobic floor, which is "better for the knees," and a babysit-
ting room. There also is plenty of parking.
The new building, at 808 SR 66, allows more flexibility and
offers more in terms of growth, as it is her own facility, Schneider
noted.
There are six classes a week, and Schneider expects to add
morning classes starting in the fall. For more information or to
schedule a class, call 767-0613.
FAMILY TRADITION A long-time local funeral-home
site remains a family business with its new owners, who have been
serving their communities for several generations.
The facility at 404 W. Palmetto St. in Wauchula is now
Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Home, with a rich history of family
and service.,
In December of 1959, Edward R. Ponger bought McClelland
Funeral Home, which was founded in 1907 in Punta Gorda. In
1992, Ponger and Fred Grady integrated their businesses into one,
founding Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Home.
Grady, now 88, began working at the Old Robarts Funeral
Home at age 13, mowing grass. In 1946 he met and married a girl
from Limestone, Betty Albritton. He then went on to earn his funer-
al director's license from Gupton-Jones School of Embalming in
1948. He bought Old Robarts Funeral Home, and turned it into
Robarts-Grady in 1963.
Ponger, now 76, founded the Kays-Ponger Funeral Home in
Port Charlotte and Punta Gorda, Royal Palm Memorial Gardens
and Southeastern Crematory. He received his funeral director's
license in 1957 from the mUiTversity of mcinnati7 .---
Ponger's oldest daughter, Allyson Ponger Karnes, represents
the third generation. She currently is president and funeral director
in charge of the organization. She graduated in 1978 from Miami-

The newest location that this family firm has opened was the

as Curry Raley Funeral Home and most recently as Brant Funeral

The name on the sign may have changed, but the time-honored
traditions remain the same.
The Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Homes staff is here to serve
the families of this community in their time of need.

12B The Herald-Advocate, April 28, 2011


He Remembers Sputnik


by ABNER GARCIA
Special To The Herald-Advocate
My interview was with Juan
Berrones.
Q: When and where were you born?
A: Sept. 16, 1945, in Brownsville,
STexas.
Q: Where did you live during your
youth?
A: Brownsville until the age of 4, then
moved to Raymondville through the
ages 5-17. After that I moved to Florida,
to Homestead and in 2000 to Sebring.
Q: Where did your parents come
from?
A: Victoria, from the state of
Tainaulipas, Mexico.
Q: What did your parents do to sus-
tain their family?
A: My father was a sharecropper; a per-
son who does most of the work on the
crop and s
gets a ,.,
share of ':! .
the profit '. '
in the
end.
Q: Until what grade did you attend
school and why?
A: He finished eighth grade at the age
of 16, so he could help his father raise
his siblings.
Q: What was your first job and with
what salary?
A: He worked in a retail store, and
received $16 for 60 hours of work.
Q: What was your first car?
A: A 1951 Chevy Coupe, two-door, six-
cylinder engine with three carburetors,
three speeds, with two mufflers.

Juan Berrones in January 1966, while
serving in the Army at age 20.
Q: Where you ever affiliated with the
armed forces? If so, how?
A: I was in the U.S. Army, served in
Powaince, Korea, from Dec. 28, 1965,
through Nov. 25, 1967, in the artillery
regiment, Camp Knox.
Q: What president do you remember
the most from when you were young?
Why?
A: I remember Eisenhower, because he
is the first president I remember know-
ing anything about.
Q: Do you think here would have
been any possible ty that people
would have accep ed our modern-day
president, Barack Obama, when you
were young? Why?
A: No, mainly because there was a lot
of prejudice. African-Americans and
Mexican-Americans didn't have as
many rights, like voting, and there was
also segregation.
Q: What was a person able to buy
with $10?
A: In today's view, a $300 suit. I mean
the average salary in the '40s was about
$30 a week.

Why?


A: Mickey Mantle. I liked him; he was
a great baseball player.
Q: Do you, in your opinion, think
that the world has worsened or bet-
tered since you were young?
A: Well, I think it has worsened. In the
old days. there wasn't as much potential
for war, not a lot of crime, and there
was more respect for the law.
Q: How many jobs have you worked
in?
A: Well, I worked in the fields, as a
mechanic, a truck driver and at a con-
crete plant, but my profession is the
drywall business. I've worked in it for
30 years, and I'm retired now.
Q: What was your favorite sport?
A: I really liked football. I played in
junior high.
Q: What technological advances can
you remember, that were new to your
time?
A: Well, I remember Sputnik and radio
communication devices such as two-
way radios.


More than 20 states in the
United States have changed or
are considering changes to their
policies on trying kids as adults,
according to a new report,
"State Trends: Legislative
Changes from 2005-2010
Removing Youth from the A-
dult Criminal Justice System,"
released by the Campaign for
Youth Justice.
Most of the youths prosecut-
ed in adult court are charged
with nonviolent offenses, and
young people kept in the juve-
nile justice system are much
less likely to reoffend than
those transferred into the adult
system.
"State Trends" examines 27
pieces of legislation removing
youth from the adult criminal
justice system, as well as show-
casing states currently contem-
plating reforms. In the past five
years, 15 states have passed leg-
islation and at least another nine
have active policy reform
efforts under way. The report
presents an overview of the


Q: What clothing styles were popular
in your youth?
A: I remember that bell-bottom pants
where popular, and turtleneck shirts and
Converse shoes.
Q: When did you move to Florida,
and why?
A: November 1960. For better work.
Q: What was your favorite TV show
when you wereyoung?
A: I really liked Roy Rogers and Dale
Evans. It was a cowboy show, with
hardly any violence or anything of that
sort.
Q: Have you ever left the country?
A: Yes, I've.gone to Mexico and Korea.

major problems that result from
trying youth in adult criminal
court and analyzes four distinct
ways by which states and
municipal jurisdictions are
changing the politics of youth
crime.
States included in these
trends are Arizona, Colorado,
Connecticut, Delaware, Geor-
gia, Illinois, Indiana, Maine,
Mississippi, Nevada, Pennsyl-
vania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and
Washington. Other states men-
tioned in the report as on the
horizon for reform: Florida,
Maryland, Massachusetts, Mi-
ssouri, Nebraska, New York,
North Carolina, Oregon and
Wisconsin.
"State policymakers are
beginning to understand the
research that kids are not adults
and need educational and reha-
bilitative services," said Nee-
lum Arya, "State Trends" author
and research and policy director
for the Campaign for Youth
Justice. "'State Trends' docu-
ments the ineffectiveness of


prosecuting youth in adult crim-
inal court and tracks the trends
of returning to the original.
promise of the juvenile court."
In a rush to crack down on
youth crime, states enacted
harsh laws a generation ago,
making it easier for youths to be
prosecuted in adult criminal
courts. Every state allows
youths to be prosecuted as
adults and an estimated 250,000
children are prosecuted as
adults each year in the United
States. In more than half of the
states, there is no minimum age
limit on who can be prosecuted
as an adult. This means that in
these states very young chil-
dren, even a 7-year-old, can be
prosecuted as an adult.

'Cats Beat Panthers, Red Devils


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat nine
ended its season in fine fashion
with a pair of victories.
The 'Cats started playoffs on
Tuesday at 7 p.m. at Bradenton
Southeast against the home
team Southeast. which is seed-
ed second. Hardee is seeded
third with a 10-7 (4-4 in district
play). Top-seeded Cardinal
Mooney played against the win-
ner of fourth-seeded Desoto and
fifth-seeded Sarasota Booker.
The district championship game
is tonight (Thursday).

HARDEE 11, MULBERRY 5
Hardee hosted Mulberry on
April 18. The Panthers got the
first run on a hit, walk and error.
Hardee answered with a score
in the home half of the first on a
Justin Knight homer.
In the second inning, Mul-
berry went down one, two,
three and Hardee stranded
Dawson Crawford, who had
singled to right field.
After freshman pitcher Gar-
rett Albritton retired the side in
the top of the third, Hardee
went to work, sending a dozen
batters to the plate and bringing
six of them home. Dylan Farr,
John Mayer and Lincoln Saun-
ders were patient and drew
walks. Scot Donaldson doubled
to center field to score two of
them. Justin Knight followed it
with a double to left field, plat-
ing two more.


Wintz Terrell started it again
when he ,was safe on n a error.
Crawford singled to right and
Kyle Ward singled and ad-
vanced on an error by the third
sacker. Kalan Royal then sin-
gled to left to keep it going.
When Farr was hit by a pitch
and two outs followed quickly.
the bases were left jammed, but
it was a 7-0 game.
The Panthers picked up five
runs in the top of the fourth on a
combination of walks and hits
before leaving the bases
stacked. Hardee added a pair of
insurance runs. Knight doubled
and Terrell singled to put run-
ners on the corners. A Crawford
sacrifice brought Knight in and
an error on a Ward hit let Terrell
come home. Royal was hit by a
pitch, leaving two aboard when
the inning ended.
Senior reliever Justin Brom-
ley came to the mound and
struck out seven of the nine bat-
ters he faced over the three
innings he pitched. Hardee left
one on in the home half of the
fifth, but produced another pair
of scores in the bottom of the
six. Crawford and Royal both
walked and came around to
cross home plate on a Mayer
long single to left center.
Knight led the Wildcats with
three hits, including a homer
and pair of doubles. Crawford
had twin hits, runs and RBIs.

HARDEE 3, AVON PARK 2
It was Senior Night, starting

ors b' the Air Force Junior
Reser e Officer Training Corps
color guard of Captain Jesse
Belcher. Airman Alie Solis.
Master Sgt. Kareem Richardson
and Staff Sgt. Tayler Mueller.
Sophomore Joshua Faulk did a
tremendous job in singing the
National Anthem.
Then followed the introduc-
tion of the six seniors and their
families, beginning with three-
year Wildcat Bromley and his
parents Ron and Lori Bromley.
Following in order were out-
fielder Mayer and his parents
John and Wendy Mayer; pitch-
er/designated hitter Ward, son
of Randy and Brenda Ward;
Donaldson, a four-year starter
who currently hold seven sin-
gle-season records, the son of
Linda Martinez; Saunders, also
a four-year starter and short-
stop, son of Scott and Tami
Saunders; and outfielder/2011
captain Royal, son of David and
Tonya Royal.
With all that out of the way,
the Wildcats and Red Devils
settled down to play baseball.
Both team stranded runners
through the first two innings.
After a Terrell hit to left field in
the second inning, Kalan Royal
fouled off six pitches before
getting a hit down the third base
line. But the two were left
aboard when the inning ended.
It was the third frame when
the scoring began. Avon Park
plated its only scores. Ty
Jackson singled to right field
and Drew Reeves singled to left
center. Catcher Anthony Caru-
thers singled to center field and
a series of overthrows allowed
the first two runners to cross
home plate. It was 2-0.
Hardee worked its way back
into the game in the home half
of the inning. With two down,
Saunders was safe on a dropped
third strike. When Donaldson
doubled. Saunders raced all the
way home. Knight continued
with a shot in short right center.


bobbled b\ the outfielder when
the second baseman backed up
to get it. While they retrieved
the ball. Knight slid safely into
second and Donaldson scored.
It '\as a tie game.
That went on through the
next t\\o innings. At the end of
the fourth. Bromley replaced
Ward on the mound, and Kram-
er Ro\al took over at catcher
for Farr. Bromle\ set the Red
De\ ils dow\ n in order in the fifth
and Hardee stranded three run-
ners.
At the end of the fifth, there
was a drawing for a new grill.
The home plate umpire did the
honors, and young Quinton


Lindsey (and dad Gerry Lind-
sey). took the grill home.
In the sixth inning. Avon Park
got one runner aboard and left
him there. Hardee got it going.
Kalan Royal led off with a hit
up the middle, with Deonte
Evans coming in to pinch run.
With Ward now designated hit-
ter. Evans went to second on a
wild pitch and third on an error
on the Ward hit.
Evans slid home on a wild
pitch with Kramer Royal at bat.
Mikey Retana, who was a pinch
runner for Ward, took third on
the Royal ground-out. Mayer
drew a walk and there were still
runners on the corners. A bang-


bang Saunders shot to the short-.
stop resulted in a double play
and ended the Hardee threat,
but the 'Cats were up 3-2.
A pair of strikeouts and
ground-out in the top of the sev-
enth ended the game.
"That was a BIG win for us.
It was great after a 1-4 start to
come on and win out. We fin-
ished at 12-10 and third seed.
Avon Park is a good ball club so
it was a great night for our sen-
iors. Every one of them made a
solid contribution. Kyle and
Justin pitched well and every
senior batter made solid hits. It
was an outstanding effort," said
Head Coach Steve Rewis.


PIECE O' PIE?

Students at Zolfo Springs Elementary School were very eager to spend the "Cat Cash"
they had earned to purchase the opportunity to throw a pie at their teachers during the
Cool Cat Awards Assembly held on Friday, April 8. Cat Cash is earned for having pos-
itive behavior, and that is definitely being displayed at Zolfo Springs Elementary
School! Earning the reward were (front row, from left) Trinity Her, Jeremy Myers, Alexis
Crews and Jasmine Rodriguez Targets of their sweet confections were second-grade
teachers (back row) Malena Klein, Kari Gicker and Kaylee Webb.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER


The editorof a newspaper asked
his readers to send in testimonials
on the subject, "Books that have
helped me."
One of the replies was, "My
mother's cook book, and my
father's check book."
Important books, indeed. But
there's one more important the
Bible. It's the source-Book of our
knowledge of God and the guide-
Book to everlasting life.
It teaches us the best way to
live, the noblest way to suffer and
the most comfortable way to die.
St. Paul wrote, "The whole Bible
was given to us by inspiration from
God and is useful to teach us what
is true and to make us realize what
is wrong in our lives; it straightens
us out and helps us to do what is
right."


evie-( LAooW 1"26W1


T he .higher a climb, the more dangerous it
becomes. The climber searches fbr strength
and lirm footing with every step and never looks
down until he reaches his goal. Life places obstacles
before us that appear insurmountable: with God's
help we can possess power we didn't know we have,
making the impossible possible. Visit your house
of worship this week and know that your highest
aspiration is as near as a prayer. Look up toward
Hi m...never look down.

The Game!
The game is the hit, the run, the slide
The game is excitement and eyes open wide
The game is a tackle, touchdown, or block.
The game is making' a shot to beat the clock.
... this is the game.

The game is pre-school, takin' naps, eating snacks.
The game is kindergarten and colorful backpacks.
The game is learning to read and write.
The game is goin' to bed early at night.
The game is math, science, and social studies.
The game is a class with all of your buddies.
... this is the game.

The game is a first crush, first kiss, first love, first heartache.
The game is the risks in this life we take.
The game is a job and finding a spouse.
The game is bills and buying a house.
The game is raising kids 'til they're grown,
so they can survive this game on their own.
The game is retirement, and maybe some golf
-watching your grandkids when your kids go off.
... this is the game.

The game is Heaven, where God you'll meet.
The game is everlasting paradise and that you can't beat.
So play the game, play hard and strong
-because the game continues
on ... and on.
But when it's done and you've reached the end,
you'll come out of this game with a win!
... this ... is ... The Game!
