Wauchula Election: 3 Winners, 1 Runoff


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
There will be a runoff in the
Wauchula election.
With just under 15 percent of
local voters going to the polls,
three winners were declared on
Tuesday night. Kenny Baker
won Seat 4, Gary Smith took
Seat 5 and Rick Knight secured
Seat 7.


In the four-person Seat 3
race, the top two vote-getters,
Dan Graham and Keith Nad-
askay, will have a run-off in
about three weeks. Perhaps, that
race will also be decided before
the first meeting of the new
commission on June 13.
When it reconvenes after a
four-month hiatus, the Wau-
chula commission will include:


Patty Detwiler, who took Seat 1
without opposition; Russell
Smith, who won Seat 2 in last
year's election; Graham or
Nadaskay for Seat 3; Baker in
Seat 4; Gary Smith in Seat 5;
John Freeman, who won Seat 6
in last year's election; and
Knight in Seat 7.
Early voting and absentee
ballot made the difference in


some of Tuesday's vote. The
total turnout was 290 of the
city's registered voters for a
14.53 percent. That varied in
the three precincts, Precinct 4
topped it with a 17.53 percent
turnout with 112 of 639 voters
casting ballots, with Precinct 6
-.at 107 voters of 668 possible
voters casting ballots for 16.02
,percent.


Unusually low was Precinct
10, where only 71 voters of a
possible 689 actually voted.
Commissioner Russell Smith
attributed it to a misunderstand-
ing. "I'm disappointed in the
voter turnout. I think it may
have been because some people
thought they could only vote in
their district and with Patty
(Detwiler) having no opposi-
tion, they didn't go vote."
Wauchula elections have
been citywide since the City
Charter changed in 2004.
The Seat 3 race was close in
all precincts. When it was all
counted, Nadaskay had 92

Love is in the air ... but we certainly are not the

Yes, those all-too-annoying bugs are back! Florida
natives, and even visitors during May or September, can
attest to the frustration caused by these insects. They are
in the air, on windshields and even in your hair!
But where do lovebugs come from, and what can
you do about them?
Otherwise known as the telephone bug, double-
headed bug, kissing bug or honeymoon fly the latter
being most accurate the lovebug is actually part of
the better-known march flies. They go through four
stages of life, and actually are present year-round, only
making appearances during their two flights, for four
weeks at a time.

A Bowling Green man who
cached 13 pounds of cocaine
has been sentenced to 12 years
in Florida State Prison.
Hector Bravo, 40, of 5003
Central Ave., faced sentencing
in Hardee Circuit Court for the
crimes of trafficking in cocaine
and conspiracy to traffic in 400
grams or more of cocaine. In

exchange tor his plea to those
counts, charges of using his
home to traffic in cocaine and
of possessing narcotic equip-
ment were dropped.
Circuit Judge- Marcus J.
Ezelle then imposed the 12-year
term behind bars. Fines and
court costs of $520 were as-
sessed, as were prosecution
costs of $300.
It was the end to a case which
began simply enough, with a
routine traffic stop initiated by
the Polk County Sheriff's
Office on Feb. 1 of last year at
County Line Road near the
Bowling Green city lifnits.
Hardee County Drug Task
Force spokesman Maj. Randy
Dey, of the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, said Bravo
gave the Polk deputy verbal
consent to search his Dodge
duallyy" pickup truck. That
deputy, he said, found eight
packages of cocaine inside a
plastic barrel sitting in the bed


As larvae, where 5-7 months of their lifespan is
spent, lovebugs feed off of decaying plant matter and
store enough of it away to abstain from eating as an
adult. The male emerges before the female, and once
she does, up to six males can be attracted to her.
Once she has chosen her mate and is connected, it
can take up to 12 hours to transfer nutrients in order to
reproduce. Shortly after, the male dies, yet she contin-
ues to carry him around until she, too, joins him.
The female lovebug can lay 150 to 600 eggs, which
will start the process all over again. Lovebugs only live
roughly two to three days.

of the truck.
The find amounted to about
5,000 grams, he said, or about
11 pounds.
At that point, Bravo also gave
permission for a search of his
residence, and the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office joined
in the investigation, searching
the Central Avenue house.
An additional bag of cocaine
was discovered in a shed in the
back yard of the home, Dey
said.
Its contents weighed in at
about 800 grams, or around two
pounds.
- An undisclosed amount of
cash was found in the house.
Dey said a kilo of cocaine is
generally worth about $25,000.
"But, divided and sold by
ounces or grams on the street, it
is worth a whole lot more," he
said.
Authorities valued the large
illicit stash somewhere around
$150,000.


Writing Scores



Show Increases


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Over half of Hardee County's
students passed the writing por-
tion of the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test given ear-
lier this year.
Even though the state
changed scoring from a previ-
ous 3.5 to the new proficiency
standard of 4.0 in writing,
Hardee County students never-
theless showed overall im-
provement in their essays,
which required narrative, ex-
pository or persuasive writing.
All schools locally achieved the
old standard of 3.5 average, or
mean score.
Schools Superintendent Dav-
id Durastanti was pleased with
the results. "2011 Hardee FCAT
writing results indicate signifi-
cant increases in student
achievement, even with the
Florida Department of Educa-
tion raising the passing score
from 3.5 to 4.0 out of a possible
6.0, making it more difficult for
our children to achieve a pass-
ing score," said Durastanti's
Monday press release.
Four of the five elementary
schools evened or exceeded the
state's 81 percent of students
scoring 4.0 or better on the
essay writing. While Hardee
Junior High and Hardee Senior
High School students did not
reach state levels, students
showed marked increases from
previous years.


Fourth Grade
Statewide, of 197,860 fourth
graders tested, 81 percent tested
4.0 and, in fact, the average
score was 4.0. For the district
Hardee's 452 fourth graders
exceeded that with an overall
83 percent scoring 4.0 or above.
"Hardee elementary schools
set a new high for fourth-grade
students, thanks to the determi-
nation of the students, faculty,
staff, parents and administra-
tions of these schools. Hardee
elementary schools' 83 percent
also outperformed DeSoto 74
percent, Hendry 74 percent and
Okeechobee 76 percent," said
Durasanti.
The state average, or mean
score, was 4.0.
Bowling Green Elementary
and Wauchula Elementary both
did better with a mean of 4.1,
while North Wauchula Ele-
mentary met the state mean of
4.0.
Zolfo Springs was close at
3.9 and Hilltop was at 3.8.
Of Bowling Green's 89
fourth graders tested. 89 percent
achieved the proficiency rating
of 4.0 or above. At Wauchula
Elementary, 86 percent of the
107 fourth graders tested rated
4.0 or above. North Wauchula
Elementary was close behind
with 85 percent of its 86 stu-
dents testing at 4.0 or better.
Hilltop's 72 students came in
at 82 percent and Zolfo

MEN-
For those who enjoy Peace River there is a new boat landing
and park on the river near Homeland on County Road 640. This
allows boats and canoes to access the upper Peace River in Polk
County.
The new Heritage Peace River Landing had been hoped for
since 2003 and was a partnership between Clear Springs LLC, Polk
County, the Dick Pope Chapter of Public Relations, and other
groups. The landing has a fishing pier and picnic shelter and is
open from 7 to 7 every day. There are already boat landings on
Peace River in Bartow and Fort Meade in Polk.

High gas prices are affecting nearly everyone. They are about
a dollar a gallon higher than a year ago.
Wendell Cotton reported he bought gasoline at the Racetrack
in Avon Park Monday for $3.63 a gallon, while prices were $3.87
in Wauchula.
Mike Ioannidas of Wauchula Family Restaurant said gasoline
prices are about $14 a gallon in Greece. He said people are still eat-
ing out but many are ordering hamburgers instead of steak to com-
pensate.for increased fuel,prices. .

U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan on Tuesday atanged a small busi-
ness forum at PRECO in Wauchula for small business owners to
learn how to get federal help to create jobs and boost the economy.
The U.S. Department of .Commerce, U.S. Small Business
Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural
Development participated. Attendance was about 45..

Denise Miller, a long-time manager of Royal's Furniture in
Wauchula, passed away Tuesday after a courageous year-long bat-
tle with lung cancer. The store closed earlier this year.

The First Christian Church of Wauchula has a goal to pay off
its $163,000 debt by 2014 when celebrating its 100th year anniver-
sary. As of May 1 $43,008 had been raised toward the debt.

Americans are drinking less orange juice but paying more for
it, reports the Florida Department of Citrus.
For the past three months ending April 16, sales by gallons
have declined 3.8 percent, 4.5 percent and 5.8 percent while dollar
revenues have gone up 1.9 percent, 1.5 percent and 1.0 percent,
compared to last year.
For the four monthly reporting periods starting Oct. 30, 2010,
and ending Jan. 22, 2011, sales by gallons declined.11.2, 9.9, 7.9
and 7.3 percent and dollar sales declined 6.5, 4.7, 2.6 and 0.6 per-
cent, as compared to a year ago, according to the Nielson Retail
Sales Summary.
For the season to date comparing 2010-11 to 2009-10 volume
sales have declined 7.2 percent, the price per gallon has risen from
$5.42 to $5.75 a gallon, and revenues have declined 1.4 percent.
With a smaller Florida orange crop than years ago, growers are
receiving more for their fruit although caretaking and pick and haul
costs have gone up.
The disturbing trend over the past dozen years is that orange
juice consumption in America has declined from about five gallons
to three gallons per person.
Total grapefruit juice sales in the U.S. for this season com-
pared to last season is down 3.5 percent by volume, the gallon price
is up a half percent, and revenues are down 3.0 percent.

The pill drop in Hardee County on Saturday, April 30, result-
ed in 87 pounds of recovered pharmaceuticals collected and dis-
posed of by incineration, reported the Hardee County Alliance for
Substance Abuse and Pregnancy Prevention.

Brenda Lumley of rural Zolfo Springs is thankful for the local
EMS. She writes: "Yes, on April 11 I had another scare. Thought I
was having another stroke. Thanks to my friend for calling 911. I
was very rude that day, but I would like to take time to thank the
EMS team and the Air Med team who helped me and flew me to
Tampa General. If it wasn't for all the teamwork on that day, I may
not be here today to- watch my grandbabies grow up. Thanks

Q: I know I need to get more
active, but I don't have any-
one to watch my kids while I
work out, and I don't get
much exercise when I try to
do it with them. What do
other parents do?
A: First, don't automatically
assume that you can't get mod-
erate, or even vigorous...activity-
with your children. It may just
be that you need to be creative
about finding a kind of activity
that you can do with them that
allows you to move at a pace
that is energizing for you.
Depending on their ages, look
up some games from library
books or websites that might
have you moving more or faster
than they need to. Try to be
open-minded about all the ways
you can move with your chil-
dren, from dancing to tag and
hide-and-seek. If your children
are very young, you may find
that pushing them in a stroller,
biking with them in a trailer or
walking with a baby in a carrier
on your back could turn what
seems like very modest activity
into more exercise than you
realize. For some activities,
children's attention spans may
not allow a long workout, but
that's okay. You achieve health
benefits front physical activity
even when you accumulate it in
blocks of 10 or 15 minutes at a
time. On the other hand, part of
the benefit of physical activity
is also the wonderful stress
relief of letting your mind
escape, so time without keeping
an eye on the kids may bring
extra benefits. How about tak-
ing turns watching the kids with
another parent while one of you
works out?

BUGGY
Continued From 1A
oped by the University of Florida during research and
then accidentally some even say intentionally -
released, that is not true.
Scientists have researched and shown the bug's
original migration pattern from Louisiana to Miami,
with the long trek beginning in the mid- to late 1940s.
By the early '50s, they were evident in Tallahassee,
reached Gainesville by the mid-1960s, were discovered
in Central Florida in '72, and by 1975 they had traveled
all the way to Miami.
Another common misconception is that they were
developed to rid the state of mosquitoes by mating a
fema leovebug with a male mosquito, with the mindset
that they would not be able to reproduce. This is false
on numerous accounts, the main one being the differ-
ence in active flight patterns. Lovebugs are active in the
morning while mosquitos do not become a nuisance
until nighttime.
True or False: The number of lovebugs can give a
clue to how active a hurricane season Florida will have?
The answer is unsure. In 2004 when hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jean ripped through the area,
it was documented to have been a thick lovebug season.
The next two years were quieter, and lovebugs were less
prevalent. But 2007 had more lovebugs and more
recorded tropical .storms. What will this season foretell?
"Lovebugs will rip the paint off your car." While
this well-known fact holds merit, it's only true to an
extent. Lovebugs have neutral bodily acid when alive.
Once they have died and are sticking to your windshield
and grill, however, they become more acidic, harder to
get off. It is then and only then that they can ruin a paint
job.

What You Can Do
Although it's toward the end of lovebug season,
remember this tip for next year: According to the
University of Florida, before the season begins give
your car a good wash and wax; it'll make the cleanup
job a lot easier. Pam or similar spray or a thin coat of
baby oil can give the same benefit.
During the season, wash your car every couple of
days to avoid chipping the paint job. Use a dryer sheet
and some water for easier removal.
Vacuum lovebugs out of confined areas, such as
your car or the comers of buildings. Having a fan
upwind can also keep the bugs at bay for a short period
of time.
Hood air deflectors or screens over the radiators can
limit the number of splattered bugs and keep them from
overheating your vehicle. Plan long trips early in the
morning or after dusk when they aren't as active, and
travel at slower speeds to avoid a splattered windshield.

What Not To Do
Do not try to rid the bugs with any kind of pesticide
spray; it's harmful to humans and can potentially kill
bugs that are helpful.

Waiting It Out
As evident by their enormous overtaking in Florida,
these bugs are attracted to heat. So, the short spring
Florida experienced this year is the reason for their
early emergence, in mid-April.
But, take heart, that early arrival will be followed by
an early departure.
Although to most people lovebugs are a nuisance,

HISTORIC HAPPENING


COURTESY PHOTOS
The fourth annual encampment at Paynes Creek Historic State Park was its most suc-
cessful yet, according to Park Manager Jackson Mosley. Highlight of the recent week-
end event was a re-enactment of the Indian attack at the Kennedy-Darling Store which
once stood on the park site. To facilitate the retelling of the historic massacre at the
trading post, park officials constructed a replica of the Kennedy-Darling Store this year.
Above, re-enactors and rangers who played the various parts in the massacre are
shown In front of the building. Below, the replica can be clearly seen. Plans are to now
use it for school group tours, Mosley says. Eventually, it will be available for public
access year-round. Paynes Creek Historic State Park Is open daily at 888 Lake Branch
Road in Bowling Green.

Disaster Relief Team


Leaving For Alabama

Donations Of Certain Supplies Still Accepted


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
After deadly tornadoes and
thunderstorms ripped through
the South last month, killing
more than 290 people along the
way, President Obama declared
a state of emergency in
Alabama.
A team of nine individuals
from Baptist churches in
Hardee County will now be
making a trip to the First
Baptist Church of Huntsville in
Madison County, Ala., to assist
with disaster relief
Leading the group is Jessica
Prescott. Team members are
Jamie Davis-Samuels, Noey
Flores, Jennifer Flores, Jessica
Murdock, Caroline Mackay,
Karen O'Neal, Briana Aguila
and Rick Knight.
"We feel as though God has
called us to go and use our
hands and feet to help those in
need," says Davis-Samuels.


"The goal of our team is to
build a relationship with a local
Baptist church that has been
severely immobilized by the
tornadoes, and help rebuild
their church by providing evan-
gelism, discipleship and hu-
manitarian work," she adds.
The team will leave from
Torrey Oaks Golf Course
tonight (Thursday) and return
Monday evening. The trip will
consist of two vehicles, includ-
ing one trailer. They will stop in
Tallahassee to stay the night at
state Rep. Denise Grimsley's
home, continuing on to Hunts-
ville on Friday.
Once they have arrived, they
will register their team and
begin working. Part of the team
will stay on base at Redstone
Arsenal.
Among the supplies that will
be distributed by the Hardee
County team are King James

Smart Snacking Key Component
In Weight Management


Holding off on snacking
because you're worried about
unwanted weight gain may be a
mistake. Snacking is not a sin.
Health and nutrition experts
agree that all well-planned diets
should incorporate routine
snlacking to help reduce binge-
ing and keep metabolism high.
Not only will you feel happier
when you stop starving your-
self, but smart snacking can
help you look and feel your
best. Certain snacks may even
help you maintain a healthy
blood sugar level, add missing
nutrients to your diet, and, per-
haps most surprising, help you
maintain a healthy weight.
Promising nutrition research
suggests that people who regu-
larly consume nuts, such as pis-
tachios, have a lower body
weight than those who do not
eat nuts, even when those indi-
viduals consumed more calories
on average.
Oz Garcia, Ph.D.-known as
"Nutritionist to the Stars"-rec-
ommends pistachios as a deli-
cious snack choice to many of
his clients who are watching
their weight. Garcia has worked
with Heidi Klum, Hilary Swank
and Kim Cattrall.
"The main goal of any snack
is to pack in as many nutrients
as you can while keeping the
snack lower in calories," he
explains. "I'm a big fan of pista-
chios. They offer more than 20
different nutrients for only 160
calories."
Here are a few more reasons


Garcia calls pistachios a "power
snack":
Portability: Pistachios
come in their own carrying
case. With durable shells, pista-
chios won't crumble when
thrown into a gym bag or brief-
case, but they're still easy
enough to open without a nut-
cracker.
The Crunch Factor: Skip
the chips and get your crunch
fix from pistachios. Unlike
overly processed chips, pista-
chios are packed with protein,
vitamin B6 and heart-healthy
antioxidants.
Quantity and Quality:
Pistachios are one of the low-
est-calorie nuts-at 160 calo-
ries per ounce. You can have
49 tasty pistachios per serving,
more than any other snack nut.
Portion Control a Plus:
Since pistachios almost always
come in their shell, cracking
them open will naturally slow
down consumption, helping
you to eat less. The remaining
pile of shells also serves as a
reminder of how much you've
eaten.
You Can Mix it Up: You
don't want to get bored with
your snacks. With pistachios,
you can make your own trail
mix by tossing them together
with dried fruit and chunks of
dark chocolate. The fiber found
in a serving of pistachios (3g)
will help keep you full while
the fruit and chocolate will sat-
isfy your dessert craving.

Legislature Puts In


Citrus Research $$$


As a show of support for one
of the state's largest industries,
the Florida Legislature included
$2 million in the 2011-12 budg-
et to help citrus growers fight
pest and disease.
The funding will go directly
to the Citrus Research & De-
velopment Foundation, which
manages ongoing citrus re-
search for the $9 billion indus-
try. The measure still must be
approved by the governor.
"I would personally like to
thank Sen. J.D. Alexander and
Rep. Denise Grimsley for mak-
ing sure this research funding
was included in the budget,"
said Michael W. Sparks, head of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "They
each have the foresight to know
how important citrus research is
to maintaining the 76,000 jobs
our industrysupports."
The Florida citrus industry is


currently battling a destructive
disease known as HLB, or cit-
rus greening. The disease is
found in all 32 commercial cit-
rus-producing counties. It
spreads fast and can kill a tree
in less than two years.
Over the past five years,
Florida citrus growers, through
a self-assessment, have funded
more than $50 million in
research designed to combat
HLB.
"Florida growers have a lot of
skin in the game, and they
understand the urgency of the
situation," Sparks said. "It is
encouraging to know .the state
of Florida is there to help a for-
midable industry that defines
our state to residents and
tourists alike.
"The very future of Florida
citrus is at stake," he concluded.


Tackling Rare Diseases

That Affect Millions


The estimated 25 million
Americans who suffer from one
of the 7,000 identified rare dis-
eases may be relieved to know
biopharmaceutical researchers
are working on over 400 new
medicines to help fight those
conditions.
The Challenge
Roughly 80 percent of rare
diseases affect fewer than 6,000
patients in the U.S. There is a
great need for new medicines to
treat these diseases, most of
which afflict children. How-
ever, the challenges of finding
new treatments can be equally
great. Many of these diseases
are little understood and it can
take years just to get an accu-
rate diagnosis, which also limits
the pool of potential clinical
trial participants. That can make
it difficult to enroll enough clin-
ical trial participants to meet the
Food and Drug Administra-
tion's requirements. Because of
this and other hurdles, rare dis-
ease research can be signifi-
cantly more challenging and
time consuming than other bio-
pharmaceutical research, which
can generally take 10 to 15
years and cost, on average, $1.3
billion to bring a new medicine
to patients.


Some Solutions
Meanwhile, positive policies
such as the Orphan Drug Act
help spur innovation by provid-
ing fair incentives to companies
that accept the burden, cost and
risk of entering this field of
research. Says Chris Silber,
M.D., vice president of U.S.
Clinical Research and Medical
Affairs for Lundbeck, Inc.,
"Finding a therapy that really
works in an underserved popu-
lation that has been through
tremendous adversity is one of
the most gratifying things I can
imagine."
"Once you've talked to a des-
perate parent whose child is
suffering or dying, you will be
forever convinced of the need
for medical innovation, includ-
ing for terrible diseases that
afflict even just a few," adds
PhRMA President and CEO
John J. Castellani. "Researchers
at biopharmaceutical compa-
nies are working every day to
bring hope to patients with lim-
ited options." PhRMA repre-
sents the country's leading phar-
maceutical research and bio-
technology companies, which
are devoted to inventing medi-
cines that allow patients to live
longer, healthier lives.


Choosing A Health Care Surrogate:

Who Speaks For You When You Can't?


An accident or severe illness
can occur at any time, regard-
less of your age or condition of
health, which is why it's impor-
tant to discuss your health care
preferences with your loved
ones as soon as possible. Many
people are reluctant to talk
about their preferences and are
uncomfortable even thinking
about them. Putting off these
important conversations may
result in family conflict and
confusion at a time when you
are most vulnerable.
One of the first things to do to
manage your advance care
planning is to select someone
you trust as a health care surro-
gate. This person's role will be
to ensure that your health care
preferences are communicated
if there is ever a time when you
are unable to express them
yourself. The .surrogate you
select might not be the obvious
choice, so before you decide,
consider the following:
Does this person know you
well and can he or she express
your values, goals and wishes?
You may feel. a spouse or fami-
ly member may not necessarily
be the best option for you-per-
haps because he or she may be
too emotionally involved; or a
spouse or family member may
be the best choice-only you
will know. Make sure your
selected health care surrogate
understands the types of med-
ical intterventions you want-
and don't want-under certain
circumstances.
Is your selected health care


surrogate able to work effec-
tively wjth authorities and bur-
eaucracies and advocate for
your rights?
Is he or she likely to be
reachable at any time?
Once you have selected a
health care surrogate, he or she
has the authority to act only if
you cannot speak for yourself
and must act according to your
wishes in a number of ways,
including:
Receiving the same med-
ical information you would
receive;
Asking questions and get-
ting explanations;
Requesting consultations
and second opinions;
Consenting to or refusing
medical tests, medications or
treatments, including life-sus-
taining treatment and/or organ
donation, according to your
preferences;
Authorizing admissions or
transfers to another physician,
organization or institution, in-
cluding assisted-living facili-
ties, hospitals, hospices and
nursing homes;
Taking any legal action
needed to carry out your health
care wishes.
It's never too early to start
discussing your health care
wishes. The peacefulness of
your last days depends on the
conversations you start today.

ing a legally recognized health
care surrogate in your state,

By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Hardee District Schools
recently held its 22nd annual
"Yes I Can!" recognition ban-
quet honoring seven Exception-
al Student Education students,
one to represent each school.
The program is established
by the Foundation for Excep-
tional Children, which recog-
nizes exceptional students for
achievement in the areas of aca-
demics, arts, athletics, commu-
nity service, employment, ex-
tracurricular activities, inde-
pendent living skills, technolo-
gy, and self-advocacy.
Angel Villegas, from Zolfo
Springs Elementary; Raul
"Romeo" Martinez, North
Wauchula Elementary, David
Reyna, Bowling Green Elem-


entary; Desiree Spiker from
Wauchula Elementary; Santos
Cleto, Hilltop Elementary; and
Angelica Gallegos of Hardee
Junior High were all awarded
for their academics. Tyler
Gomez, a sophomore at Hardee
Senior High School, was given
recognition for his community
service.
Each student's family, princi-
pal, teacher and guidance coun-
selor were present, and a few
words were said about each stu-
dent.
"I just want to say that Santos
is one of the most amazing kids
we've had. He's the honorary
assistant principal here, and we
are all so proud of him," Hilltop
Elementary Principal Doug
Herron said.
"I had Tyler as an elementary


student and was so excited
when he was nominated for this
award," said high school princi-
pal Dr. Michele Polk. "While it
was for community service, I
went around talking to each of
his teachers and getting their
input, it only cemented my
already established opinion.
And being here today as well,
everyone agrees that there is not
a more deserving person for this
award."
Each youngster was given
similar accolades as everyone
enjoyed a breakfast buffet.
Schools Superintendent David
Durastanti was also present,
and said a few words about the
excellence of the students.
Sponsors of the event were
Progress Energy, Vandolah
Power Corp. and Joe L. Davis.

Gebhart, Commander Leon Archer, Evalyn Archer, president Joy Christmas, Linda
Purvis, Laurene Tibbs, Sheila Smith, Rosie Earp and Betty Stalls. Also in attendance

Observing Confederate Memorial Day


One hundred and fifty years
after the opening shot of the
War Between the States, the
united Daughters of the Con-
federacy, Capt. John Wesley
Whidden Chapter, held a me-
morial service at the Methodist
Church Cemetery in Fort
Green.
The gravesite of Pvt. John R.
Gill, great-grandfather of Joy
Christmas, president of the
chapter, who is buried there,
was the focus of the special cer-
emony.


Gill served the Confederacy
in Capt. John Lesley's Com-
pany B, Col. C. Munnerlyn's
Battalion, CSA. These compa-
nies were known as the Florida
Cow Cavalry, guarding the
herds of cattle sent from Florida
to feed the Confederate Army.
The private is described as
5'6" tall, with blue eyes and
light hair. He suffered a gunshot
wound that broke his right leg.
After the war, he returned to
Hardee County, married and
raised a large family. Many of


his descendants remain in Flor-
ida today.
A flag and wreath were
placed on Pvt. Gill's grave.
Leon Archer, Commander of
Confederate Cow Cavalry
Camp #2181, Arcadia, Sons of
Confederate Veterans, spoke on
Florida's role in the war and
paid tribute to Pvt. Gill.
The members of the UDC
honored their Confederate an-
cestors by stating their names
and placing a white rose of
remembrance on a wreath.

The Student Council at Bowling Green Elementary School participated in "Pinwheels
for Prevention" in April. The pinwheel is the new symbol for child abuse and neglect
prevention nationwide. It represents efforts to change the way the nation thinks about
prevention, and focuses on community activities and public policies that make pre-
vention important from the start, so that child abuse and neglect never happen. The
Hardee County Health Department provided each Student Council member with a pin-
wheel, planted in front of the school in a show of support.

Greetings from Fort Green!
I hope all you ladies had a
super Mother's Day. I sure did.
Of course, we went to church
and then had dinner with
daughter Avie and family.
Allen's mother, Glenda, and
Avis Sasser came out for dinner.
Everyone seemed to enjoy
themselves and that is what
makes a good day.
Essie Deer was really sur-
prised at church. She and John
were at their usual seats in
church when this young lady
slipped in between them. Their
daughter, Valerie, had flown in
from Huntsville, Ala., and was
going to stay until Tuesday.
Her parents were not aware she
had come and it was one happy
family!
Another happy mama was
Nancy McQuaig, as her son
called from Afghanistan to wish
her a happy Mother's Day. In
fact; he woke her up at 4 a.m.!
It was noon in Afghanistan but
Nancy certainly did not mind
answering the phone.
A miracle we had at Fort
Green I am saying this with
tongue in cheek is Lichelle
Griffis. Last week's column
requested prayer for her with
her broken foot but when I saw
her Wednesday night, it appear-
ed to me that she limped but
when I asked her nothing had
been wrong with her foot! I
must need glasses because it
wasn't her I thought I saw in the
walking cast on Homecoming!*
Cassidy Wilson was exuber-
ant last Wednesday night as she
had scored a six on the FCAT
Writing exam. For you with no
connection to the schools, this
is really good. Six is the best
you can make and very few get
this high a grade. Congratula-
tions, Cassidy!
Mary Samuels told me they
had six new babies, puppies that
is! One of their beagles gave
birth, and grandson Clay will be
excited. He has not seen them
yet. Puppy breath smells good
to me and I love to cuddle one,
but I guess you must be a dog
lover to think so.

Brother Steve and wife Tara
had a nice short trip in honor of
Mother's Day. He did not tell
her in advance the destination
but she had a good time.
As usual, there is a lot going
on at church. This Saturday,
the ones who purchased tickets
for the rib fest should pick them
up at the church between 5 and
7 p.m.
On May 21, there is a Vaca-
tion Bible School meeting at 10
a.m. and a fishing tournament at
6 a.m. This is the annual Junior
High Fishing Tournament and
will be at Lake Reedy. The cost
is $30 per two-person boat.
May 22, we will have a cov-
ered-dish dinner honoring.our
three graduates. Randi Sasser
graduated from University of
Florida, Ashlee Abbott from
Warner University and Deserea
Newcomb will graduate from
Hardee High School.
Willie Godwin broke his
elbow lifting weights or that is
what I was told. My grandson,
T.K., hurt his shoulder lifting
weights and ended up having
surgery. Please remember Wil-
lie in prayer, and you young
people need to be careful.
The graduating class of 1939
had its annual luncheon at
Nicholas Restaurant last Satur-
day. It is amazing that these 90-
or 91-year-young folks make
the effort and the 40- or 50-
year-olds won't go to their
reunions! Congratulations to
all of them and especially Avis
Sasser, Margaret Searcy, Odell
Lowe, Evelyn Blackmon, Mar-
guerite Carlton and Frank
Conner. These are the ones I
know!
Fort Green will be having the
Sunday p.m. services beginning
this Sunday. We did not have
services on Easter, Homecom-
ing and Mother's Day to allow
families time to visit. People
won't know how to act when it
comes time to get ready on
Sunday night, and Wendy's bet-
ter get ready! Quite a few of us
go there after the p.m. service.
Please pray for one another,
our nation and the military.

Chapter FL2-H of the Gold
Wing Road Riders Association
is doing its part to promote May
as National Motorcycle Safety
Awareness Month.
The chapter reminds mo-
torists to "Double-Check, Look
Twice and Save a Life." Mo-
torcycles have smaller profiles
than other vehicles, making it
more difficult to judge the dis-
tance and speed of one ap-
proaching.
Statistics have shown that


approximately 75 percent of
motorcycle accidents involve
another vehicle, with two-thirds
of those being caused by a
motorist who failed to yield the
right of way to the motorcyclist.
These accidents most often
occur at intersections involving,
motorists making left-hand
turns into the path of the motor-
cycle.
Only by actively looking for
motorcycles can motorists
increase their awareness of


them and make the highways
safer.
For more information on
motorcycle safety or Gold
Wing, call Winston Carlton at
773-3648.
There is nothing more
admirable than two people
who see eye to eye keep-
ing house as man and wife,
confounding their enemies
and delighting their
friends.
-Homer

May Is Motorcycle

Awareness Month


End Time Bible Prophecies

Many wonder why end time Bible prophecies point to
earthquakes, storms, wars, and the like, when after all,
these things existed from long ago. But it's the intensity
and the frequency of the troubles that set our days apart
from the past. Daniel 12:4 reveals another sign for the time
of the end and that being knowledge will be rapidly
increased. This sign is especially significant because
never in earth's history have we had the technology nec-
essary for the enforcement of the economic boycott asso-
ciated with the mark of the beast (Revelation 13:17). As the
troubles of our world become more frequent and ultimate-
ly reach a certain degree of intensity, a vain attempt will be
made to appease God and bring about an end to the
many calamities by a legal measure with the enforcement
of a religious tradition with pagan roots (Revelation 13:2).
It is then that the dreaded mark will be realized. The time
will come when many will say that they have done won-
derful things in the name of Jesus but only to be rejected
because of "willful" disobedience to the Creator (Matthew
7:21-23, I John 3:4-6, II Thessalonians 2:12, Revelation
14:12). The difference is in "knowingly" continuing in will-
ing disobedience rather than an occasional stumble fol-
lowed by heartfelt repentance toward Jesus (I John 2:1).

'Click It or Ticket' Time Coming Up


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The importance of using seat
belts was re-enforced by county
commissioners recently.
A proclamation was approved
unanimously by the Hardee
County Commission at its April
28 meeting. designating the
nearly two-week period May
23-June 5 as the mobilization
enforcement period for the
national program, "Click It or
Ticket."
During that time -local law
enforcement officers will be out
checking for seat belt use
because "increased enforce-
ment of seat belt laws has
proven to be an effective
method of decreasing fatal
crashes."
The proclamation was pre-
sented by Leslie Bond, secre-
tary/treasurer of the Hardee
County Community Traffic
Safety Team., who provided
some interesting statistics. In
2008, 70 percent of passenger
vehicle occupants killed in traf-
fic crashes were youth ages 13
to 15, the highest percentage of
any age group. A passenger air
bag explodes at 200 mph, and
unrestrained passengers hitting
into it as it propels toward them
is a fatal combination.
Men, particularly pickup
truck drivers, are especially
guilty, where 87 percent do not
use seat belts.
In 2008, 67 percent of the
pickup truck drivers killed in
traffic crashes was not using
seat belts.
Use of seat belts and child
safety seats saves lives and
reduces the severity of injuries,
said Bond, which prompted
Commissioner Sue Birge to ask
if all county employees use seat
belts. She was told it was. a
requirement of the job.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-learned Gov. Rick Scott
had signed an Executive Order
renewing the county's RACEC


designation which gives it
added points on grant applica-
tions of all kinds. RACEC
(Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern) designa-
tion helps many rural counties
get some priority on a variety of
economic issues.
-approved a job description
of Planner III, replacing the
vacant Administrative Assistant
in the Planning & Development
Department. Director Kevin
Denny explained that with the
Department of Community
Affairs being closed out, more
growth management and min-
ing decisions will increase the
workload. The Planner III posi-
tion, funded by mining fees,
would include working on
Developments of Regional
Impact, reworking the Unified
Land Development code, redis-
tricting and visioning projects.
-approved lowest and best
bid of $48,750 for a solid waste
feasibility study by SCS


Engineering. The study will
look at all the options for pro-
viding solid waste (garbage dis-
posal/landfill) options over the
next 50 years or so.
-agreed for the chairman to
sign the Heartland 2060
Sustainable Communities Grant
Program of Florida's Heartland
Rural Economic Development
Initiative (FHREDI) in cooper-
ating in the three-year federal
grant FHREDI received.
Hardee County would not have
to put any money in the pot, but
would provide in-kind services
as its contribution.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
noted, "Everyone here will not
be here in 2060. This is plan-
ning for your children and
grandchildren. Commissioner
Dale Johnson said, "You ought
to sit in on some of these meet-
ings and see what people think
it will be like in 2060, like
going back to railroads because
of the high cost of gasoline."

There's a pillar in Trafalgar
Square in London. On top of it is a
statue of Britain's naval hero, Lord
Nelson.
But it's up so high you can't see
his features. So in 1948 an exact
replica was made and placed at
eye level. Now everyone can see
him.
That's what God did at Christ-
mas.
He came down from heaven,
was born of the Virgin Mary, and
lived a sinless life to show us what
He's like in Jesus.
He humbled Himself even
further, going so far as to die on a
cross for us.
Behold Him, believe and live!

When it's dark outside,
the light on the
lamppost illuminates
the path and guides
us to our front door.
At times, we enter
dark periods in our
lives and can't see the
way we need some
enlightenment. Psalm
119:105 says, "God's
Word is a lamp to my
feet and a light for my
path." How can we
walk in the light of
God's Word? Visit His
house and learn about
His Word; the light of
the Lord will guide us
through the darkness.

Head To Capitol


More than 550 Florida 4-H
members and volunteers clad in
green converged on Tallahassee
late last month for the annual 4-
H Pay at the Capitol.
Gov. Rick Scott spoke during
opening ceremonies. A morning
conference on the Old Capitol
steps included Commissioner of
Agriculture Adam Putnam,
state Sen. Ronda Storms, Sen.
Gary Siplin, Rep. Steve Crisa-
fulli and numerous 4-H offi-
cials.
"This event, which is spear-
headed by the State 4-H Coun-
cil, will allow 4-H youth to
experience civic engagement
firsthand and gain important
knowledge and skills to be
engaged citizens," Dr. Keith
Diem, associate dean and State
4-H program leader, said prior
to the Tallahassee event.
"Adults sometimes don't
realize the powerful impact that
young people can make,"


added.
During the day, 4-H members
took tours and attended work-
shops to learn about state gov-
ernment.
Attendees from Hardee
County included 20 4-H youth
and eight 8 volunteers.
"4-H Day at the Capitol is
one of the highlights of our 4-H
year, and we are happy that
Hardee County was well repre-
sented," said Carolyn Wyatt,
Hardee County's 4-H agent.
Founded in 1909, the Florida
4-H Youth Development Pro-
gram works annually with more
than 240,000 young people,
ages 5-18, and nearly 15,000
volunteers. The program is
active in all 67 counties and the
Seminole Tribe of Florida.
Headquartered in Gaines-
ville, it is part of the University
of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.

DIABETES: TAKING CARE FROM HEAD TO TOE!
If you have diabetes, pay special attention to your skin, eyes,
teeth, gums, and feet. These areas are at increased risk for compli-
cations due to your diabetes.
This month's column talks about how you can take care of
your body from head to toe, so read on!
Since your skin is the first line of defense against infection,
some tips for keeping your skin healthy are as follows:
Bathe or shower daily, towel-drying your skin thoroughly but
gently.
Prevent dry skin by using mild soaps and moisturizers; a
humidifier in winter may help if the air is dry.
Don't put lotion between your toes, in your skin folds, or in
your armpits. Use powder to keep these areas dry.
Treat cuts right away. Wash with soap and water, and cover
with a clean bandage.
See a health-care provider right away for major cuts, burns
or infections.
See a dermatologist about skin problems that need further
treatment.
Use sunscreen!
Having diabetes increases your risk for eye disorders, includ-
ing glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. Retinopathy is an
eye disease of the retina, and it is the most common complication
of Type-2 diabetes. It is the leading cause of blindness in the U.S.
Controlling your blood sugar can help prevent or delay this condi-
tion, so see an eye doctor right away- if you have any of these symp-
toms:
Blurry or double vision
Trouble reading signs or books
Pressure in your eyes
Spots or floaters in your eyes
Chronic red eyes
Lines don't look straight.
Problems seeing things off to the side
Remember to see an eye doctor every year for an eye exam.
This will increase your chance of detecting an eye disease early so
it can be treated.
People with diabetes, especially those with poor blood sugar
control, are at increased risk for periodontal (gum) disease. If left
untreated, gum disease can ultimately lead to tooth loss. For
healthy teeth and gums, follow these tips:
Brush teeth at least twice a day.
Floss every day.
Visit your dentist every six months for a routine cleaning and
checkup.
See your dentist immediately if you have signs of gum dis-
ease, such as red, swollen, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, or
changes in the way partial dentures or bridges fit. Inform your den-
tist that you have diabetes and provide information about medica-
tions you are taking.
For people with diabetes, foot sores or ulcers can become
infected, cause disability, and even lead to amputations. Have your
feet checked annually by your health-care provider and take care of
your feet every day at home by doing the following:
Inspect your feet daily for red spots, cuts, swelling or blis-
ters. Use a mirror to help you see and check the bottoms of your
feet.
Wash your feet daily and dry them carefully, especially
between your toes.


The first five years of life are
the most crucial in a young
child's development. Learning
developmental milestones
could help your child get help if
it's needed.
At least 1.45 million children
under the age of 5 who are at
risk for developmental delays
or other disabilities are not
identified at an age when inter-
vention could do the most good.
These are children who enter
school with learning and health
issues that have a lasting, nega-
tive effect on their ability to
learn and succeed. One notable
example is children .with au-
tism, who are often not diag-
nosed until school, and lose
four years of early optimal
treatment. The reason? Parents
often don't know where to turn
for answers when they suspect
something isn't quite right with
their young child and too many
communities do not provide the
early detection, direct services
and interventions critical for
vulnerable young children to
become ready for school.
Here are five things parents
should know:
1. Each child is unique and
develops at his or her own pace,
but there are certain warning
signs that might indicate devel-
opment disabilities.
2. Understanding develop-
mental basics and learning
about milestones can make you
more aware of the skills a child


should achieve.
3. Trust your instincts. If
your child misses a milestone or
you feel that something is not
right, talk to your health care
provider.
4. Early identification and
treatment are key to a better
future for your child.
5. Families can come to
organizations such as Easter
Seals for therapies to strengthen
a child's physical, intellectual,
social and emotional abilities.
To fund such programs, the
organization gets donations
from individual and corporate
sponsors. For 'example, the gro-
cery company Safeway con-
ducts an annual store fundrais-
ing campaign that raises more
than $10 million for Easter
Seals and other organizations
that support children with dis-
abilities.
However, federal and state
funding is also needed. Shrink-
ing budgets are forcing many
states to limit the number of
young children who can receive
early intervention services,
even as research shows long-
term benefits to the child and
cost savings to the nation. You
can share your concern about
this and other issues with your
congressional and state repre-
sentatives.
Join. Easter Seals and speak
out about the importance of
early intervention at www.-
MaketheFirstFiveCount.org.


Keep your skin soft and smooth with a thin coat of lotion on
the tops and bottoms of your feet, but not between your toes. Use
a lotion that does not contain alcohol and that ., unscehted.
Trim toenails by trimming straight across and filing sharp
edges with a nail file.
Wear clean socks and shoes that fit well.
Wear shoes and socks rather than walking around barefoot.
Protect your feet from hot and cold conditions.
Keep the blood flowing to your feet. Put your feet up when
you sit; wiggle your toes and move your ankles. Don't keep your
legs crossed for long periods.
Talk to your doctor if you develop open sores or infections,
or if a toe becomes red and tender (this could be an ingrown toe-
nail).
In conclusion, by taking good care of yourself from head to
toe. you will increase your chances for healthy living and decrease
your chances for complications as a result of your diabetes.
For more information you can contact the American Diabetes
Association at 1-800-342-2383 (1-800-Diabetes) or the Hardee
County Extension Office at 773-2164.

Q: What is this "bodyweight
N F 33834 strength training" I am hear-
EEN FL 33834 i g a o t
ing about?
$191.47 A: Bodyweight strength train-
ing is exercise that uses your
own body weight for resistance
GS, FL 33890 to work your muscles instead of

$140.02 weights or resistance bands. For
example, you can strengthen
Y YVONNE your arms with exercises like

EN, FL 33834 push-ups (standing against the
wall, or regular or bent-knee on
$527.57 the floor) and chair dips. You

IN DALE & VIR can strengthen leg muscles by
getting up and down from a sit-
ting or squatting position,
L 33873 depending on your current level

$190.85 of fitness and balance. Other
leg-strengthening exercises that
UDYHINERMAN use only body weight include

w DR leg raises, wall-sits and lunges.
L 33873 You can strengthen your ab-
dominal muscles with sit-ups,
$54.02 which can be done in many dif-

ESCONDIDA ferent variations to focus on dif-
GARCIA ferent areas of your "abs," as
well as exercises known as
GS, FL 33890 Aii 1'
pGS, FL 33890 lanks and bridges. Although

$1,030.74 these bodyweight strengthening
exercises may not be enough
STREE for bodybuilders, by changing-
NG how far you work against your
WOODS body weight and how long you

EEN, FL 33834 hold the resistance, variations
of these exercises can be used
$66.65 by people who have been
E RUTHY sedentary and have little
IESPO strength as well as by people
N LN who already have developed
GS, FL 33890 good muscle strength from reg-

$37.55 ular exercise. You can find
examples of these bodyweight
ANN WEEMS strength training exercises and
w instructions from several trust-
GS, FL 33890 worthy websites, such as the
Senior Health section of the
$70.98NIH website and the American
IAGO Council on Exercise's workout
A AVE guide in three phases. You
L 33873 might also find it helpful to get

$108.70 personal instruction on how to
do these exercises and adapt
ARMONY them as you grow stronger by
O
BELL meeting for even a few sessions
VE with a qualified trainer at a
L 33873 YMCA or other fitness center in

$104.08 your community.

Q: Why do I hear some people
iND TRL ai b da bt
621-9429 making a big deal about how
you breathe during exercise
$87.34 like walking or biking? Does
it really make a difference?
A: Yes, how you are breathing
L 33873 during aerobic' exercise can.,'

$202.28 affect your heart'i'ate and thus
your performance and endur-
v FRANCES ance. Many adults have devel-
GS, FL 33890 oped a shallow breathing pat-
tern. This limits how much oxy-
$137.48 gen you can take in, cutting
GILFORD short your ability to continue
when you could otherwise go
33890 longer or faster. Erratic breath-
$182.8 ing when exercising can lead
you to hyperventilate or get
)MAS JEFFREY, dizzy. Instead, as you walk, try
to inhale for two steps, then
L 33873 hold the air in for two steps, and
$15.40 then exhale for two steps.
URILIO Alternatively, some experts
RILo advise inhaling a full three steps

GS, FL 33890 to get oxygen deep into all your
muscles. Either way, focus on
$939.44 full, strong inhales and full,

VIS FAMILY LTD complete exhales. This atten-
tion to breathing can seem awk-
SFL 3380 ward at first, but you will notice
GS, FL 33890
that your heart won't start
$131.35 pounding as easily because you
IFI INC are able to get more oxygen into
VICES INC
your body and push out the car-
EEN, FL 33834 bon dioxide waste. You may
also find that with a focus on
breathing, your walk turns into
Y BETH a more meditative, calming
OWN activity as a side benefit.
L3873 Eventually this will seem less
'L 33873
awkward and will become sec-
$34.89 ond nature. The most important
CE STUDIO thing is simply to keep breath-
YANT ing. People often assume that
DTOWN RD they are automatically breath-
L 33873 ing when they are actually hold-

$302.88 ing their breath. Take a moment
to focus on your breathing dur-
TAURANT ing your next walk or during

L 33873 strenuous activities such as
climbing the 'stairs. You may be
$37.97 surprised to find that you are
actually holding your breath.
17 N And you may be just as sur-
L 33873 prised to see how much more

$76.25 you can do when you are
breathing in a way that gets
S AND CURLS your body the oxygen it needs.

GS, FL 33890
Q: If I switch to sugar-free
$37.97 cookies and candy, will it help
me lose weight?
-RRY AVENUE A: Switching the type of cook-
33841 ies and candies you get will
probably lead to little if any
$37.97 weight loss. These products
almost always use at least part-"
ly a sweetener known as a sugar
L 33873 alcohol, such as maltitol. These


sugar alcohols provide about
$34.89 half the calories of sugar; still a

ARBER SHOP significant amount in sweets.
CREWS Besides, most sugar-free sweets
3E contain significant calories
L 3387 from fat and refined grains' For

$273.36 example, a 1.5 ounce bar of
Godiva dark chocolate provides
SLAND BILLY 230 calories in its regular form,
GS, FL 33890 and 210 calories in its sugar-
5:12c free version.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
You're blessed when you
stay on course, walking
steadily on the road
revealed by God. You're
blessed when you follow His
directions, doing your best
to follow Him.
Psalm 119:1-2 (ME)

FRIDAY
That's right you don't go
off on your own; you walk
straight along the path He
set. You, God, prescribed
the right way to live; now You
expect us to live by it.
Psalm 119:3-4 (ME)

SATURDAY
Oh, that my steps might be
steady, keeping to the
course You set; then, I'd
never have any regrets, in
comparing my life with Your
counsel.
Psalm 119:5-6 (ME)

SUNDAY
I thank You for speaking
straight from Your heart; I
learn the pattern of Your
righteous way. I'm going to
do what You tell me to do;
don't ever walk off and leave
me.
Psalm 119:7-8 (ME)

MONDAY
How can a young person
live a clean life? By carefully
reading the map of Your
Word. I'm single-minde~ in
pursuit of You; don'lAet, me
miss the road signs You've
posted.
Psalm 119:9-10 (ME)

TUESDAY
I've banked Your promises in
the vault of my heart so I
won't sin myself bankrupt.
Be blessed, God; train me in
Your ways of wise living. I'll
transfer to my lips all the
counsel that comes from
Your mouth.
Psalm 119:11-13 (ME)

WEDNESDAY
I delight far more in what You
tell me about living than in
gathering a pile of riches. I
ponder every morsel of wis-
dom from You. I attentively
watch how You've done it. I
relish everything You've told
me of life. I won't forget a
word of it.
Psalm 119:14-16 (ME)

ANNUAL PRCA RODEO IN ARCADIA
Every year, on the second weekend in March, the Frontie
Rodeo Co. brings its best stock for the annual Professional Rode
Cowboys Association rodeo, put on by the Arcadia All-Florid
Championship Rodeo. This year was the 83rd annual event, and ra
for three full days, Friday-Sunday, March 11-13.
And Hardee County is well represented at this rodeo: Women
Professional Rodeo Association barrel racers Jamie Rewis, Tamm
Miller Fussell and Amy Stevens-Waters (Charles Robert has bee
stealing all the glory for this family in the ranch rodeos, and never
even told me his sister is a champion barrel racer!), and Sue Wat
- with the first three ladies riding in the Thursday night slack, an

Jacey Johnson makes a tight turn around the second
barrel, coming in with a time of 17.81 seconds.


Youngest sister Kalley Johnson rounds the first barrel in
the Friday performance -- competing against both of her
older sisters -- to turn in a time of 19.14 seconds.

Johnson. who rode on Friday; Lacey Cumbee and Taylor McIntyre,
who rode on Saturday; and Cealie Whitaker, who rode on Sunday.
Tamme's husband, Jimmy, and son, Corey, rode in both the tie-
down roping and team-roping events. This year Corey, who rides in
the header position, deserted his dad in the team roping for a
younger heeling partner, Brandon Dieter of Ona. This pair rode in
PRCA rodeos throughout the entire state of Florida during this past
winter season. So, dad Jimmy paired up with Mark Johnson of
er Sarasota in the team roping.
:o Mike Sanders of Wauchula also had a heeler from Sarasota,
la Jay Holmes. The day sheet listed Charles Robert Stevens III of
n Zolfo Springs in the Thursday night slack performance for the tie-
down roping, but I'm not sure if he rode that night.
's Also riding in the tie-down roping event were Seth Rodriguez
ie and Paul Fussell. Seth's wife, Kaylon, rode in the Saturday WPRA

One of the bull riders, Ty Harris from Arcadia, is the brother
of Peck Harris, and Ty also rides on the M&N Cattle team in ranch
rodeos (and featured two columns ago as a winner in the Hardee
County Fair ranch rodeo).
We had no mutton busters this year so you 3- to 5-year-olds
from Wauchula, Zolfo Springs, Bowling Green, etc., get ready for
next March!
Out of all of the above competitors, we had one that shone
above the rest Lacey Combee of Zolfo Springs won the junior
barrel racing event with a clean run, putting in a great time of 17.21
seconds. Sadly, this winning barrel horse was severely injured just
this past week, losing one of its eyes. We hope it recovers and can
return to the arena.
Right behind Lacey was Shelby Johnson with a time of 17.32
seconds. Shelby and her sisters have been riding in the Arcadia
PRCA rodeos for many years now, but this was Lacey's debut per-
formance, and a beautiful one it was! She has only been riding bar-
rels for a couple of years, and it is obvious that the help she
receives from her sister, Kelly, is invaluable. (You'll be hearing
more about Lacey in upcoming columns, as she's sitting in first
place in the senior barrels division at the Reality Ranch Youth
Rodeo, and in third place at the Arcadia Youth Rodeo Association.)
I am so proud of all of our cowboys and cowgirls both youth
and adult and how well they perform at all of these events.
Congratulations, y'all!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg

Members of each section
learned various methods and
techniques for their particular
instruments before breaking for
a luncheon at a local restaurant.
Once they returned to the
school campus, the Brigade
changed into its black-and-
white concert dress uniforms to
perform for their parents, the
college students, and. for four
judges who were evaluating the
concert band students.
The Blue Star Brigade Con-

Harold Bennett, and "Proces-
sion of the Stars" by. Walter
Cumming.
Once evaluations were com-
pleted by Wansley; Hill; Shayla


Bryan, musical director of
Hardee Junior High School; and
Bryan Haymans, who has a
master's degree in music from
the University of Central Flor-
ida, Wansley shared with the
concert musicians various met-
hods and techniques that would
improve the band's overall
sound.
The Blue Star Brigade con-

The students performed two
pieces on stage for a panel of
three judges. The judges as-

then offered comments to help
the group improve. Lastly, they
assigned the chorus a rating
based on its performance.
The chorus received a superi-

stage. These are the two highest
ratings.

Allergies no longer have to
prevent pet ownership. By tak-
ing a few simple precautionary
steps, it is possible to comfort-
ably live with both pets and
allergies. Here are a few helpful
tips:
Shut the door. Keep cats or
dogs from your bedroom-and
not just when you are sleeping.
If you keep the door closed, it
.will prevent cat or dog hair
from drifting in during the day.
This also applies to a guest
room if you happen to be host-
ing a guest with allergies.
Keep pets off the furni-
ture. You can do this by placing
a plastic cover on the furniture
or by placing pieces of alu-
minum foil on areas where pets
settle. They find the noise dis-
turbing. Or you can try orange
peel; cats dislike the smell.
Ditch the carpets. Pet hair
tends to stick.to carpets, espe-
cially soft, shaggy carpet. Try
area rugs on tile or wood floors.
They are convenient because
they are portable and usually
machine washable.
Bathe pets. Use an aller-
gen-reducing shampoo. Clean
dogs at least twice a week.
Clean the air. Remove
irritants with an air cleaner that
has a HEPA filter.
Vacuum and dust fre-


never seen before. This tests
their music-reading skills.
The students earned a superi-
or rating in sight-reading,
Overall, the group earned an
excellent rating.
Several Hardee Junior High
Band members also have
gained recognition.
They recently traveled to
South Florida College in Avon
Park to perform in the Heart-
land Honor Band.
These students combined
with other top band students
from within the Heartland
Educational Consortium region
for two days of rehearsals cul-
minating in a public concert
performance.

Junior High School is Shayla
Bryan.


quently. Use a vacuum
designed especially for pet
owners. These include features
such as an odor-absorbing filter
and powerful suction for pet
hair., while still capturing and
retaining the dust and dirt that
can trigger allergies and asth-
ma.
The recently introduced Cat
& Dog vacuum, by the creators
of the first HEPA-certified vac-
uum cleaner, is built with a
sealed system designed to pre-
vent dirt, dust and allergens
from escaping back into the air.
Floor care innovator Miele en-
gineered the upright model
specifically for cat and dog
owners to deliver the powerful
suction and airflow necessary to
remove stubborn pet hair. Plus.
it's so quiet it won't disturb your
pet's mid-afternoon nap!
The vacuum's versatile brush
roller automatically adjusts
when transitioning from hard-
wood to high-pile carpet. This
feature ensures proper airflow
to remove pet hair in one pass.
SwivelNeck technology allows
the entire brush roller to limbo
under chairs and tables and to
dance around lamps and other
objects, including pets.

Can Miracles Be Trusted?

It is thought by some that miracles are a sure sign that
God is at work. But the scriptures warn us that in the
last days, many great wonders will be performed by
those whose power is of satanic origin (Matthew
24:24). Behind all of the false miracles there is one sole,
aim and that is to cause people to accept some error
that will ultimately lead to their eternal destruction. The
only sure response that our Maker has given us is to
test all things by His Word, the Holy Scriptures
(I Thessalonians 5:21, II Timothy 3:16). The Creator of
Heaven and Earth is "not" going to use "any" miracle
to support His truth, but the devil is, in support of his
lies. With that in mind we must be especially cautious
of any supernatural act that is highly publicized and
causes people to be in reverence of (Revelationl3:14).
That which makes a good counterfeit so deceptive is
that it looks so much like the "real" thing. Back when
Jesus walked the earth, Satan had deceived many into
thinking their eternal destiny was safe because of a
past ancestor named Abraham. Today Satan causes
many to feel secure because of some emotionally
charged "past" experience of professing Jesus. But
Jesus said we must abide in, continue with, and.
remain attached to Him.

Week ending May 8, 2011
Weather Summary: Dry conditions continued across most of
the State this week. According to the U. S. Drought Monitor, updat-
ed May 3, approximately 80 percent of the State had some level of
drought compared to only five percent last year. All Florida
Automated Weather Stations with the exception of two reported
less than an inch of rain to no rain. Lows were in the 40s, 50s, and
60s, while highs were in the 80s and 90s.

Field Crops: Planting of field crops was delayed in the west-
ern Panhandle due to inadequate soil moisture. From Escambia
through Washington County, farmers were hesitant to plant
peanuts. Cotton farmers in Washington County planted cotton with
limited soil moisture. Also in Washington County, oats and wheat
were drying quickly ahead of schedule and an early harvest was
expected. In Gadsden County, planted corn and peanuts showed
signs of stress due to drought. Potato growers in Putnam County
were digging and reported good yields.

Vegetables: Market movement slowed for many vegetables as
the season winds down. Cabbage volumes were expected to
decrease as growers finish for the season. The blueberry harvest
was past peak with shipments decreasing. In south Florida, move-
ment of endive and escarole was expected to decrease as growers
finish for the season. In Highlands County,-watermelons were har-
vested. Producers in St. Lucie continually irrigated vegetable
crops. Market movement included: snap beans, cabbage, sweet
corn, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, bell peppers, radishes, squash,
tomatoes, cantaloupes, blueberries, and watermelons.

Livestock and Pastures: The pasture condition Statewide
ranged from very poor to excellent with most in fair or good con-
dition. Scattered rain showers across the State were insufficient to
significantly improve pasture conditions. The range and pasture
conditions in the Panhandle were very diverse with most pastures
rated as good. Pastures in Washington County declined quickly as
the dry weather continued to take its toll. Cattleman in northern
counties reported pastures to be in mostly good condition, but
about half the pastures were rated in the fair or poor categories. The
pasture condition was reported to be mostly fair in the central
Peninsula. Ranchers in the southern areas reported pasture condi-
tions to be mostly fair as well. Statewide, cattle conditions ranged
from poor to excellent with most in fair or good condition.

Citrus: Lows were in the 50s and 60s with highs in the 80s and
90s across most of the citrus area. This week, 22 of the 25 FAWN
stations in the citrus growing areas recorded some precipitation;
seven of them recorded more than half an inch. Clewiston reported
the most with 3.22 inches 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 May 3rd. St Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach, and parts
of Collier, Hendry, Glades, Indian River, and Okeechobee counties
experienced extreme drought conditions. Twenty-six packinghous-
es and 19 processors were still open. Harvest of Valencia oranges
and grapefruit continued with the open processing plants running
grapefruit and Valencia. Grove activity included young tree care,
applying herbicides, hedging and topping, brush removal, and fer-
tilizer application.

I make sure the land yields its best.


I am Mosaic.

It's no surprise to find an orange grove here in Florida.

But most people don't realize that, along with providing

crop nutrients to farmers across America, Mosaic farms

its own groves on reclaimed mining lands. Right now,

we have about 6,000 acres of citrus in production.

As grove superintendent, I see things through, from

planning to harvest.


It makes sense I .. I keep Florida's land growing.

Rotary Honors World War II Veterans


Lyndsay Naranjo, minister of music at
Florida's First Assembly of God, led the
singing of the National Anthem.


PHOTOS BY RALPH HARRISON
The opening of the Sunday ceremony was
sounded promptly at 8 a.m. by the call of
"Reville," played by Ben Norris.


Col. John Gill gave the keynote address, honoring these heroes for their sacrifice and,
service, answering the call of God and country. It was a physician assistant in Ohio,
Earl Morse, himself a retired Air Force captain, who initiated the Honor Flight Network
in 2004, realizing most of the aging veterans needed assistance in order to travel to
Washington, D.C., to see the memorial dedicated in their honor.


Rotary President Sue Birge welcomed
attendees to the "Honor Flight" program,
held outside Wauchula State Bank under
the flagpole. In this, the Hardee County
Rotary's first annual event, nine local vet-
erans of World War II, in their 80s now, will
be escorted on a free trip to Washington,
D.C., to the World War II Memorial which
was dedicated in 2004.


Associate Pastor Chris Rutledge, of
Florida's First Assembly of God, gave the
invocation, praying for military personnel
past and present.


Saluting the young patriots who so will-
ingly stepped forward to serve their
country in World War II, just one of their
roles as The Greatest Generation, was
Cracker Trail Museum Curator Sandy
Scott.


Presentation of the Colors was performed by a Junior ROTC unit.


The crowd recited the Pledge of A crowd turned out to witness this sendoff for nine World War II veterans, the first local group to take the "Honor Flight" to
Allegiance, led by Lt. Col. Anthony Hingle, Washington, D.C. Rotarians will accompany them on the trip on May 14. Sponsors are Mosaic, Alan Jay, CF Industries, Vandolah
instructor of the Junior ROTC program. Power Co., David Singletary State Farm Insurance and Peace River Electric Cooperative.

27th senatorial district, an-
nounced yesterday that the con-
tract has been let for the
Bowling Green to Torrey Road.
Including bridges and paving,
the cost of this stretch of road is
$67,820. Local labor will be
dsed except where experts are
required, such as engineers, etc.

ment service and the wage scale
will be 20 cents, 35 cents and

(Friday). The musical contests
will begin promptly at 5 p.m. in
the city auditorium with male
quartettes, fiddling, harmonica
and string bands. The winners
will appear again during the
;public speaking so that the pub-
lic that was unable to attend the
afternoon session will be able to
hear the best musical talent of
the district.
Air-tight pitching on the part
of Henry "Hutch" Boney of this
city, combined with the heavy
hitting of Hardee County
Growers, enabled them to cop
their second win of the season
as they defeated the Fort Meade
aggregation by 9 to 0.
Prof. J.K. Chapman, principal
of Wauchula High School, has
released a schedule of events
for the 50 seniors. Senior exam-
inations begin today while the

on Tuesday. Graduation will be

the local city auditorium.
50 YEARS AGO
The Hardee County School
Board voted Monday to relo-
cate the cafetorium at the new
junior high school. A change
order would increase costs
$4,800 for additional roadways
and covered walkways to. the
new, building, allowing both the
senior high and junior high stu-


dents to use it. When the new
cafetorium is built, the old one
will be put to other use.
HCN Construction was
awarded the $120,320 bid for
the addition and remodeling at
the Hardee County Jail at a
meeting of the Hardee County
Commission on Monday. The
contract for the jail equipment
went to Decatur Iron & Steel, of
Alabama, with the low bid of
$49,825. Construction of the
jail is scheduled to begin this
week.
Quick action on the part of
firemen and police prevented
extensive damage to J.W.
Earnest Department Store on
Monday night. The neon roof
sign facing the west alleyway
shorted and broke into blaze.
Policeman Fred Lanier spotted
the flames about 8:20 p.m. from
a police cruiser and called the
Fire Department. Fire Chief
Burton Moseley estimated dam-
age to the roof at $35 to $40.
Western Auto announces the

25 YEARS AGO
A former Wauchula police
sergeant, Roger Vreen Clark,
31, pleaded guilty to counts of
improper exhibition of a
firearm, a misdemeanor. Under
a plea agreement, adjudication
was withheld, there was no jail
time and two felony counts of
shooting inside an occupied
building were dropped. He was
ordered to undergo alcohol
evaluation, and pay $234.50
fine and court costs and $100
restitution to the diner on West
Main Street where the firearm
was discharged. The shots, fired
after midnight when the place
was closed and he was 6ff-duty,
were not aimed at any individu-
als.

New Test Makes Colon

Cancer Detection Easier


Many people 50 and older
may be relieved to know doc-
tors now have a convenient new
test to help check for colon can-
cer.
The new method identifies
the cancer's genetic material in
a blood sample taken from the
patient's arm. The results help
the doctor determine if there's a
strong likelihood that colon
cancer is present. If so, addi-
tional testing may be recom-
mended.
Why Testing Is Important
Testing is important because
colon cancer (also called col-
orectal cancer) is treatable
when caught early, but often has
no symptoms and goes unde-
tected. About half the people
who should be tested are not, so
only about 40 percent of cases
are diagnosed in early stages.
Colon cancer is the third most
common cancer in men and
women in the U.S., with more
than 51,000 deaths expected
this year.
According to the American
Cancer Society, most men and
women should be tested begin-
ning at the age of 50 up until the
age of 75. Individuals with spe-
cial risks, such as a family his-
tory or who are smokers, as
well as African Americans,
should be tested even earlier.
"Under-testing for colon can-.
cer is a major health problem in
the U.S.," said Dr. Jon R.
Cohen, Senior Vice President
and Chief Medical Officer for
Quest Diagnostics, the nation's
leading diagnostics testing
d company and developer of the
new test.
Colonoscopy is the best
method for detecting colon can-
cer early and the one patients


should consider first. It will
detect colon cancer 95 percent
of the time and a doctor. can
remove precancerous growths
during the procedure.
Colonoscopy is invasive,
however, involving a long tube
inserted through the rectum and
colon. Fecal tests are also good
choices for colon cancer screen-
ing, but some people find sam-
ple collection unpleasant. Other
recommended tests include
flexible sigmoidoscopy and
double-contrast barium enema.
"While colonoscopy is the
best method for detecting colon
cancer, many patients resist the
procedure," said Dr. Cohen.
"Advanced new blood testing
may promote evaluation of
patients who refuse to be tested
by other methods."
Your doctor can order the
new blood test, called
ColoVantage, from Quest
Diagnostics. There. are no
dietary restrictions or special
preparations and the test can be
added to routine blood work. In
a clinical validation study,
ColoVantage correctly identi-
fied colon cancer in 70 percent
of samples of people diagnosed
with the cancer. It also correctly
detected the absence of colon
cancer in about 89 percent of
samples tested. As with any
non-colonoscopy test, a posi-
tive test result should be fol-
lowed up by colonoscopy for a
more definitive diagnosis as
appropriate under the guidance
of a doctor.

your options for colon cancer
testing, speak with your doctor

Diagnostics.com.

Ten Key Facts About

The "Gift of Life"


While some people may think
that those over 50 are too old to
donate the "gift of life," the
facts, fortunately, are otherwise.
According to the Health Re-
sources and Services Adminis-
tration of the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services,
individuals in their 50s,' 60s,
70s and beyond can become
organ, eye and tissue donors.
People over 50 can receive
transplants as well.
More people today are living
healthier lives than those in pre-
vious generations and know the
importance of exercise, healthy
living and eating well. As a
result, they're in better shape
than ever and able to be
donors-as well as recipients-
at older ages than anyone might
have imagined.
If you're over the age of 50
and not currently registered as
an organ, eye and tissue donor,
here are 10 facts you should
know about donation:
1. The need is tremendous.
More than 110,000 people are
on the national waiting list for
an organ transplant. Each week,
over 100 of them will not
receive an organ in time to save
their lives.
2. Any age is the right age.
Your age doesn't make you inel-
igible to register, nor do you
have to be in perfect health.
3. You can sign up at any
age. Just nine days shy of his
93rd birthday, Carlton Black-
bum became the nation's oldest
organ donor, following his
death from a brain hemorrhage.
Thanks to his gift, the life of a
69-year-old woman suffering
from end-stage liver disease

was saved.
4. People over 50 years old
comprise the largest age group
by far of those waiting for organ
transplants; they account for
about 60 percent of those on the
national waiting list.
5. The United States has
more than 94 million people 50
or older. If the majority of peo-
ple in this age group registered
as donors, imagine how many
lives could be saved.
6. Eight lives or more can be
saved by one donor. There are
eight organs that can be recov-
ered from a donor and trans-
planted. The heart, liver, kid-
neys, pancreas, lungs and small
intestines can all be transplant-
ed.
7. Tissue donors can im-
prove many lives. Corneas,
heart valves, veins, tendons,
bone and skin can all be donat-
ed and transplanted to improve
lives.
8. Most religions in the
United States support the gift of
life as an act of charitable giv-
ing.
9. The estate or family of an
organ, eye or tissue donor
incurs absolutely no cost for
donation.
10. It's easy to register. Learn
how to register at organ-
donor.gov. Remember to tell
your family members, so they
can support your wishes.
If you or someone you know
would like to register as an
organ donor, you can learn
more at www.organdonor.gov-
an informational website from
the U.S. Department of Health
and Human Services.
