Mosaic Wants Hardee $$$ For Polk Project


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Mosaic Company in-
formed the Hardee County
Industrial Development Au-
thority it will apply for grant
money for the mega multi-mil-
lion-dollar luxury resort the
company is building in Polk
County.


The local grant money, over-
seen and awarded by the IDA,
stems from the 10-year, $42
million economic mitigation
agreement previously reached
between Mosaic and the county
over the 10,583-acre South Fort
Meade Mine extension into
Hardee County.
Parker Keene, .who recently


retired from Mosaic and is
working as a hired consultant,
made the presentation concern-
ing the project, named
"Streamsong," to the IDA board
on Tuesday morning.
Keene said the upscale resort
development, which will be
located off Fort Green Road a
few miles across the Polk


County line, is in the middle of
Mosaic's 250,000 acres of land.
It will feature 222 guest rooms,
a spa, guided bass fishing,
sporting clays and two 18-hole
championship-level golf cours-
es.
The project would create over
200 full-time jobs, according to
Keene.


Because the resort will be sit-
uated 60 minutes from the
Tampa airport and 90 minutes
from the Orlando airport,
Mosaic is hoping it will attract
business conferences. and
retreats as well as leisure travel-
ers and golf enthusiasts.
The land was mined from the
mid-1960s until two years ago,


Keene said.
Mosaic is currently reclaim-
ing the land, and will do so for
the specific purpose of its post-
mine use, which Keene said has
never been done before.
He went on to say the resort
would be operated by a man-
agement company and that

Drought 'State Of Emergency'


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It's a toss-up. There's no right
or wrong answer.
Whether the drought index or
heat index could give you the
greatest trouble could depend
on how susceptible you are.
Both are extremely high.
There is a red flag warning out
because of the drought index
and the heat index for Tuesday
was 103-105 degrees.
"A powerful high pressure
system is keeping it hot and dry.
Avoid exercising outdoors,


avoid burning., With people
more likely to use their pools,
there's a reminder to be cau-
tious and be sure gates and pool
access is limited," said Hardee
County Emergency Manage-
ment Director Rich Shephard
on Tuesday afternoon.
DROUGHT
According to the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration (NOAA), a Tues-
day afternoon bulletin noted
that 93 percent of Florida is
considered to be in exceptional
drought conditions across
southeast Florida.
The statewide Keetch-Byram


Drought Index average is 646
on a scale from 0 to 800.
Anything above 500 presents
risks. Five counties had aver-
ages above 700. In central and
south central Florida, the index
was at or above 650, with little
relief in sight.
SGov. Rick Scott's Executive
Order 11-128 declared a state of
emergency for the entire state.
A dozen counties have also
issued a state of emergency. On
Tuesday, there were 333 wild-
fires of 20 acres or more burn-
ing, involving over 100,000
acres, putting the state Emer-

Whidden In Hall Of Fame


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Dewey Edward "Eddie" Whidden Jr. is the
newest inductee into the Hardee County Schools
Hall of Fame.
The recognition came as part of the 2011
Senior Honors & Hall of Fame Banquet, which
was held on Tuesday night of last week at the
Hardee County Agri-Civic Center.
Since its establishment in 1991, the Hardee
County Education Foundation has been honoring
hometown heroes through its Hall of Fame. The
purpose of the Schools Hall of Fame is to show-
case the successes of individuals who are prod-
ucts of the Hardee County School District and
prove that attending a small rural school does not
hinder one's potential for success.


To be nominated, individuals must have
attended Hardee County schools and have made,
or be making, significant contributions to their
professional fields and communities.
Whidden was born July 21, 1944, and raised in
Wauchula as the first child of Dewey and Natalie
Whidden. Later on, sister Ruth and brother Joel
came along.
An extraordinary fact about Whidden is that he
was born without arms.
When he became of school age, young
Whidden was enrolled at Wauchula Elementary
School, where he was taught to write with his
feet by a dedicated and compassionate teacher,
Peggy Sapp. In order to do so, however, Sapp
first had to teach herself how to write with her

Lawsuit Challenges

New Mosaic Plan.


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The three environmental
groups opposing Mosaic's
South Fort Meade Mine exten-
sion have filed another injunc-
tion against the company.
The groups are now trying to
halt a 700-acre extension to the
current mining area while the
now year-long legal battle con-
tinues through the courts.
The Sierra Club, People
Protecting Peace River (3PR)
and Manasota 88 have asked
Federal Judge Henry Lee
Adams Jr. to issue a new injunc-
tion before July 7, when his pre-
vious injunction against the
10,583-acre mine will expire.
Adams' original ruling was
vacated by the 11th District


Court of Appeals and remanded
back to him for a permanent
ruling, one based on the full
records and merits. The injunc-
tion was given a 90-day stay to
give Adams time to rule.
Russell Schweiss, a spokes-
man for Mosaic, said the com-
pany is perplexed by the motion
and said the plaintiffs are con-
tradicting themselves.
"They argued before the
court that we should mine in the
uplands while the litigation pro-
ceeded," he said. "Now that
we're doing exactly that,
they're seeking an injunction to
stop us."
Schweiss said upland mining
does not fall under the jurisdic-
tion of the U.S. Army Corps of

CITY COUNCIL


Kelly's Column
By Jim


Congratulations to the University of Florida men's baseball
team for making the Elite Eight that go to the College World Series
starting this weekend in Omaha, Nebraska. The UF ladies.softball
team reached the national finals recently.
The Florida State University men's baseball team reached the
Sweet 16 but lost to Texas A & M.

The weather in Hardee has been warm and dry for the most
part recently. The rainy season should start soon. Meanwhile some
parts of the United States, such as Iowa, have too npuch rain and
water from melting snowcaps. Peace River has a low water level,
as does Lake Okeechobee.

The Mosaic Company, with large land holdings in Hardee,
appears to have a bright future, reports the May 2011 issue of the
Industry Week magazine. They do, however, need permits to mine
their large phosphate holdings.
The World Bank reports the world's population is growing
about 200,000 people per day, wrote IW's Jonathan Katz. This
means more crops are needed which'require more fertilizer for
higher.yields. More.biofuels& are alsq oduce~with fertilizer.,.
.....Phosphate fertilizers and posd are 'riiary products for:
Mosaic, wrote.Katz. The company expects global phosphate fertil-
izer demand to grow 3% annually and potash:by 4% a year. IW
reported Mosaic, has over 100 years of potash reserves and repre-'
sents about 15% of the world's phosphate fertilizer supply.
The company, with earnings of $542 millioni:in its most recent
quarter, plans to spend $5 billion over the next nine: years to
increase its potash production by over 50%, wrote Katz.

Friday Night Live will be held this Friday at 6 at Heritage Park
in Wauchula. The event is sponsored by PRECO and Main Street
Wauchula.

Realtor Rick Knight is the new mayor of Wauchula. Jimmy
Hanchey remains ceremonial Mayor of Main Street.
The new Wauchula city Council has selected its new electric
supplier to be Florida Power and Light Company to replace Tampa
Electric Company on Oct. 1.

Andy Rooney once compared life to a roll of toilet paper. The
closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes.

The Hardee County Sheriff's Office has 92 employees and 83
percent live in the county.

The Hardee Fire/Rescue Department has 43 employees and 21
percent live in the county.

The 17th Annual Firecracker 5K Run/Walk will be held July 4
at Highlands Hammock at 7:30 a.m. The event celebrates
America's birthday and has various age divisions and trophies,
raising money for Central Florida Striders and is organized by Chet
Brojek.

the 2014 elections.
The'first decision of the new
commission was to select a-
mayor'and mayor pro tem.
Knight is the new Wauchula
mayor and Baker is vice-mayor
or mayor pro tem.
The new commission then
'.settled down to business. Still
hanging was second, and final,
reading of an ordinance to
approve Comprehensive Plan
Amendments required to be
Updated every seven years in
the state-mandated Evaluation
and Review. They were mostly'
changes to include ecologically
friendly rules about green
space, environmentally friendly
landscaping and energy effi-
ciency.
The next big decision was to
choose a new bulk electricity
provider. The commission fol-
lowed the recommendation of
consultant Bill Herrington in
choosing Florida Power &
Light Co. at what will be a sav-
ings of about $50,000 a month,
beginning Oct. 1, when the cur-
rent contract with Tampa
Electric Co. expires.
After clearing more ordi-
nances and resolutions, the
commission talked about the
need to hire a new city manag-
er. Acting City Manager Olivia
Mishew had called all of the.
original 17 candidates. A few
had obtained other positions or
were no longer interested, but a
dozen applications were still
valid.
Applicants now include Fred
Baughman of Oak Hill, Newall

dall Dilling of Port Charlotte;.

believes the environmentalists'
arguments are invalid.
Dennis Mader, executive
director of 3PR, said the three
environmental groups .are con-
cerned over the effects on adja-
cent wetlands surrounding the
upland areas.
He said mining around wet-
lands leaves them isolated, like
an island surrounded by all the
mine cuts, and significantly
alters the water flow.
"The phosphate industry over
the last 60 or 70 years have got-
ten by on their short-term eco-
nomic benefit of tax revenues
and jobs," Mader said.
Both parties expect some
kind of ruling from Adams on
the temporary injunction before

will rule on a permanent injunc-
tion, but Adams has indicated it
will come after July 7.

Unattended brush and camp

HEAT INDEX
The heat index is a combina-
tion of the temperature and
humidity, combining to present
significant danger to people.
More people are killed by
heat waves than floods, light-
ning, tornadoes or hurricanes.
The Florida Department of
Health reports that more than
3,000 people are seen in emer-
gency rooms each year for
heat-related illness. Infants,
small children, people with
chronic illnesses and the elderly
are most at risk.
"If you must work outside,
take frequent breaks, stay in the
shade as much as possible and
stop when you first feel
fatigued," reminds Shepard.
Heat disorders are due to a
reduction of collapse of the
body's ability to shed heat by
circulatory changes or sweat-
ing. They generally occur be-
cause people have been in the
heat too long or exercised too
much for their age and physical


budget.
Commercial grants for Health
Centers United Inc.' on West
Palmetto Street and a sign for
the Friends of the Library, and a
residential facade grant were
approved. One for Tracker Trail
Transmissions was denied after
lenthy discussion of its pro-
posed rooftop sign.
After a couple' of other 'ite'is,
the commission closed the CRA
meeting and reconvened as a
commission. Donna Steffens
and Scott Lang were named to
fill vacancies on the Planning &
Zoning Board, which next
meets on June 20. Other mem-
bers of that board are Peter
Preston, Ray Graham and Jan
Knight.
The commission may meet
on June 28 or June 30 to have a
CRA orientation and any other
business that needs attention.
The next regular meeting will
be on July 11.

condition. Heat exhaustion can
lead to heat stroke, which can
be fatal.
Exposure to high tempera-
tures coupled with not drinking
enough water often lead to heat
exhaustion. Warning signs are
heavy sweating, paleness, mus-
cle cramps, tiredness or weak-
ness, dizziness or headache,
nausea or vomiting, fainting, a
fast and weak pulse and/or fast
and shallow breathing.
Immediately get the person
resting in an air-conditioned
environment or even taking a
cool shower, bath or sponge
bath. Drink cool, non-alcoholic
beverages, as alcohol can fur-
ther dehydrate the body.
If left untreated, heat exhaus-
tion can rapidly progress to heat
stroke, when the body is unable
to control its temperatures.
Seek emergency help if the per-
son has a hot, dry skin or is
sweating profusely, has a throb-
bing headache, confusion or
dizziness, or is experiencing
hallucinations or chills.
To keep healthy, drink plenty
of water to replace that lost by
sweat; limit outside activity to
early morning or late evening;
stay in the coolest available
space; rest often; dress in light-
weight, light-colored, loose
clothing; and wear sunglasses
and sunscreen.
Most importantly, do not fall
asleep in a vehicle or leave chil-
dren or pets alone in a vehicle.
A temperature of 88 degrees
outside can reach 135 in a

Dispatch

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Dispatching for Hardee
County Fire-Rescue will be
returning to Hardee County
under the control of Sheriff
Arnold Lanier after the com-
mission authorized him to pur-
chase the needed equipment.
Lanier was supposed to meet
with Polk County Sheriff Grady
Judd last week but was unable
to due to the passing of his
father and former county com-
missioner Milton Lanier.
Maj. Randy Dey went before
the Hardee County Commission
on behalf of Lanier.
Dey said Judd informed
Lanier last week he is standing
firm on his intensioris to stop
dispatching for Fire-Rescue by
Oct. 1-. Judd did tell Lanier he
would extend the deadline for a
short period if the Sheriff's
Office was not ready to begin
dispatching by that time.
Commissioner Sue Birge
made the motion to proceed
with the plan laid out by Lanier
last week, and for him to pur-
chase the computers that will
cost about $138,000 and take
roughly 90 days to receive.
Lanier will hire four addi-
tional dispatchers to handle the
extra calls and will need ample
time to train them.
The motion carried by a 4-1
vote, with Minor Bryant voting


against.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-authorized Janice William-
son, director of management
and budget, to begin negotiat-
ing with Larson Allen LLP/-
NCT Group LLP to conduct the
county audit.
Williamson also informed the
commission that the tentative
property value estimates will be
down about four percent from
last year.
She said that would create a
$500,000 to $800,000 reduction
in ad valorem tax revenues for
the 2011-12 budget year, using
the current tax millage.
-heard a citizen complaint
from Mike Reynolds about the
intersection of Maxwell Road
and U.S. 17 being dangerous to
the residents who live there.
Reynolds said not having a
turn lane off of U.S. 17 is
extremely dangerous, and the
speed should be lowered until
northbound traffic passes the
intersection.
He said he has contacted the
state but hasn't gotten a re-
sponse.
Bryant agreed and made a
motion for the commission to
contact the Florida Department
of Transportation about the
intersection. It passed 5-0.
-heard a report from Dawn
Stark, the county right-of-way

and a pencil, everyone but
Eddie," Whidden recalls. "She
proceeded to help each one of
them copy the alphabet.
"I felt excluded at first, until
she came to me and told me to
sit on the floor with my paper
and pencil," he describes. "She
sat down with me and put the
pencil between her first and
second toe and started to write
the alphabet. I went home and
told my mother, who said she
taught herself when she found
out I was in her class."
SIt was not long before he was
writing the lessons, sometimes
even writing better than the
teacher and his fellow class-
mates.
Whidden's parents encour-
aged him to live life like other
kids, never coddling him, and
urging him to try everything the
other kids were doing.
"I had been praying that we
would find the right teacher,"
remembers Natalie Whidden.
"Eddie would be around kids
and teachers he had never met,
and it was a big step. Mrs. Sapp
was truly a blessing to us all
and an answer to our prayers. It
meant just as much to me what
she did for him as it did Eddie."
The schools superintendent at
the time, H.B. Dominick,
thought every student should
have his own desk, including
Eddie. Whidden's desk was
custom-made so that he could
write with his feet and toes.
Whidden was very popular
with his peers. While in the
ninth grade, he was class vice
president and an artist on the
yearbook committee. He was
elected president in his sopho-
more and junior years. During
his senior year, he was presi-
dent of the student body.
Whidden graduated from
Hardee High School in 1962
and went on to receive his bach-
elor's degree in English from
the University of South Florida.
He later earned a master's
degree in behavior disorders
from West Virginia University.


He taught special education
classes for two years at HHS
with his team teacher, Betty
Nuccio. He married and
moved to Morgantown, W.V., in
1973. His first job was as a
homebound teacher of students
who had behavioral disorders
and had been suspended from
school.
Four years later, he managed
a greenhouse at a sheltered
workshop for the developmen-
tally disabled. A few years later,
he accepted a position at. a
Center for Independent Living
as a case manager of disabled
adults, remaining on this job for
12 years.'1
Currently, Whidden is a con-
sultant on the Americans with
Disabilities Act at the Job
Accommodation Network at
West Virginia University. In this
position he addresses issues
associated with the ADA and
also offers ideas to help
employers accommodate work-
ers who have disabilities. He
has been in this position for the
past 18 years.
Whidden's career has been
associated with providing serv-
ices to people who have disabil-
ities.
"It has been my fate and has
provided me with a great sense
of satisfaction and enjoyment,"
he states.
Whidden speaks highly of his
family, including Ruth and Joel
and their wonderful kids and his
great-nieces and -nephews. He
credits his mother, Natalie, as
being his support and inspira-
tion all these years.
He was unable to be at the
Hall of Fame installation, but
sent his recorded remarks. His
mother accepted the "award on
his behalf.
Leaving a few words for the
graduating seniors in atten-
dance, she states, "Your educa-
tion is something that you earn
yourself, no one can ever take it
away from you."
Eddie Whidden Jr. has
accomplished much in his per-
sonal life and gives back to the
community through his work
for the disabled.
"He truly is an inspiration to
us all," adds Schools Super-
intendent David Durastanti.


agent, on a request from Mosaic
to close a 1.13-mile stretch of
the east end of Fussell Road.
Stark said Mosaic owns all
the property on both sides and
no homes are on that portion of
the road. The utility companies
have no objections to closing
the road.
The motion passed 5-0.
-was presented with a tenta-
tive work program candidate
project list for 2013-17 by
Kevin Atchley, director of pub-
lic works and county engineer.
The board reviewed the list
before submitting it to FDOT
for consideration of funding
assistance for the projects.
Roads on the list that could
be repaved are North Hammock
Road, Parnell Road, County
Line Road, Rodeo Drive,
Stansfield Avenue, East REA
Road, U.S. 17 widening, SR 64
and East Main Street intersec-
tion improvements, and the
Griffin Road Bridge.
-heard a report from Dr.
Stephen Gordon, director of the
Hardee County Health Depart-
ment, about the mosquito con-
trol laws in Florida.
Gordon said the only mosqui-
to control method currently
being used in Hardee County is
to swat them. He said he is see-
ing an increase of diseases
caused by mosquitoes through-
out the state.
Gordon said 56 of the 67
counties in Florida have some
sort of mosquito control pro-
gram.
Gordon will apply for a
three-year $18,300 grant from
the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture to combat the problem
areas in the county. He will
focus on areas with higher
human populations and areas
deemed to have a mosquito
problem by conducting tests
around the county.
He said the homeowners are
often to blame for mosquito
problems by letting water col-
lect and stand around their
houses.
-heard an update from
county planner Kevin Denny on
the changes to growth manage-
ment laws in House Bill 72
recently passed by the state
Legislature.
Denny said the new rules will
give a lot WiiIe control to, the
commissioners and 'local offi-
cials when it comes to dealing
with growth management
issues.
-appointed Sarah Johnson
to the Indigent Health Care
Board to replace the term of
Lavonda Rogers, which will
run through August 2014.
She was approved 4-0, with
Dale Johnson abstaining be-
cause Sarah Johnson is his wife.
-passed a motion to notify
Public Risk Management of
Florida's Group Health Trust
Insurance Pool of its intent to
possibly withdraw from the


coverage and seek another
provider.
The notification was neces-
sary in order for the county to
receive other bids, but does not
mean it will choose to leave the
pool.
The county spends about $2
million each year for insurance
premiums.
-noted that live streaming
of the commission meetings is
now available online at the
Clerk of Courts website at hard-
eeclerk.com.
-heard an update from state
Rep. Ben Albritton after return-
ing from his freshman year
serving in the Florida Legis-
lature.
Albritton said it has been an
eye-opening experience and
there is a lot of work that
remains to be done.
S-heard a complaint from
Nancy Craft about the possibil-
ity of Easton Rentals relocating
to DeSoto County from its cur-
rent location off SR 62.
Craft said she would be very
disappointed if the company
left because the county was
making it difficult to operate.
County Manager Lex Albrit-
ton said after the meeting that
Easton has never been permit-
ted to operate an: equipment
rental business on the property,
and would have to take a few
steps in'order to do so, both on
the county level and with the
Department of Environmental.
Protection.
Albritton said representatives
from the county were meeting
with the company to see if the
situation could be resolved, and
has added it to the July 7 meet-
ing agenda to revisit the issue.

The change means the office can now better accommodate
patients, including two different waiting rooms for those who are
sick or patients who may be feeling well.
The practice continues to take patients from birth until 18
years of age. Office hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The new office is located at 120 Heartland Way, which is

Growing More From Less:

Meeting The Global Water Challenge


Maybe it s not such a small
world. By 2050, the world is
expected to be home to 9 billion
people. Water will be the
biggest limiting factor in the
ability to feed this growing
global population.
Less than 1/10 of 1 percent of
the world' s water is freshwater,
suitable for drinking and for
agricultural production. As a
result, many areas already face
severe water scarcity.
Worldwide, about 70 percent
of freshwater is used for agri-
culture. The proportion of water
that agriculture requires in any
part of the world, however,
depends on how fully farmers
are able to make use of avail-
able technologies. The less
technology the more water is
required.
Water shortages currently
threaten America s breadbasket.
SThe Ogallala Aquifer in the
Midwest is rapidly becoming
depleted and there is no readily
available source of water to
replace it. The Ogallala supplies
70 to 90 percent of the irriga-
tion water for three of the top
grain-producing states in the
U.S.
In one recent year, the scarci-
ty of water resulted in an esti-
mated $30 billion in crop losses
in the U.S. alone.
The water shortage is only
going to grow worse. Five years
ago, 12 percent of the world
was living in water-stressed
conditions. By 2025, that num-
ber will triple, to nearly 40 per-
cent.

A Multifaceted Effort To
Improve Water Use
Efficiency
Such a complex problem
doesn't have a simple solution.
Here s how Syngenta, a global
agricultural company, is ap-
proaching the problem:.
First, it s continually ad-
ding to a portfolio of genetic,
trait, seed care and crop protec-
tion technologies that enable
plants to better accommodate
stresses resulting from heat,

ALICIA JARAMILLO
Alicia Jaramillo, 78, of
Wauchula, was placed in
God's hands on Tuesday, June
7,2011.
SShe was born in Mexico on
June 21, 1932, and lived in
Wauchula for the past 10
years with her daughter In-
ocencia Jaimes.
She was a homemaker and
a devoted member of St.
Michael Catholic. Church,
spending most of her time in
quiet devotion and prayer. Her
greatest passion was spending
time with her family and espe-
cially her great-grandchildren.
She is survived also by her
brothers, Rafael, Federico and
Simon; her sisters Eujenia,
Piedad and Maria de Jesus
Jaramillo. She had eight
grandchildren, Maria Olmos,

dramatically reduce the amount
of water used in farming by
efficiently delivering water
directly to plants. This can
reduce water lost'to evaporation
by 30 percent.
Third, Syngenta developed
an integrated approach that pro-
motes water stewardship and
water use efficiency. Its seed
treatment and crop protection
products help farmers grow
healthy crops even during peri-
ods of water stress. Its nonse-
lective herbicides enable mini-
mum tillage agriculture, im-
proving water absorption to
reduce runoff from farmland
and ensuring that available
water is used by desired crops
rather than undesired weeds.
Fourth, the firm advocates
for agriculture s interests in
water stewardship through par-
ticipation in organizations such
as the United Nations Global
Compact, the World Economic
Forum and the 2030 Water
Resources Group.
Syngenta is dedicated to
helping farmers around the
world grow more food using
less water by bringing forward
technologies and integrated
solutions that help the entire
agricultural supply chain reduce
its water footprint, said David
Morgan, president of Syngenta
North America. .
Working Together To Create
A Sustainable Future
To meet the needs of an ever-
growing population, growers
know that sustainability must
begin in their own fields and in
their local communities. By
adopting new technologies and
practices and working with
companies that promote sus-
tainability, growers are fighting
the global food and water chal-
lenge.

the sustainability of their farms

Sear

Dowl
By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Sears has returned to Main
Street!
Yes, located in downtown
Wauchula, the store opened last
Friday.
Owners Joel McQueen and
his wife, Lyn, bought the build-
ing in the middle of May and
then began the process of mov-
ing into the two-story structure
which most recently housed
Royal's Furniture.
Previously owning a hard-
ware store in Lake Placid, the
two, pleading "temporary in-
sanity," trained for and bought
the Sears franchise. Two weeks
were spent in Chicago for Sears
training, as well as having to go
through local training. While it
was "a pain," the couple hope to
offer the best customer service
in town.
"This store is like a 'Mom &
Pop shop' to us. It's me and my
wife along with a few other
part-time employees. We did
this on our own, without any
help or grants, and we hope to
be able to survive in a tough
economy," said McQueen.
Before online shopping be-
came popular, catalog stores
were found in small towns,
including Wauchula. A cus-
tomer would come into the
store, look through a book of
merchandise and order what he
liked.
Nowadays, the "catalog
stores," as they were called,
have turned into "hometown
stores." Such is the one that has
recently opened its doors to
Hardee Countians, offering a
place to shop in town rather
than making the drive to a larg-
er facility.
"A hometown store handles
all the appliances, lawn and gar-
den, TVs, tools, electronics, et
cetera, the same as a bigger
store might," McQueen ex-
plained. "We can offer a lot
more on the floor than it used to
be, meaning you can come in,

Hardee County.

town Wauchula. Hours are


Monday through Friday from 9

tions or help when looking into
purchases.

Saltwater
Fishing Free
June 18-19
Remember how you much
you used to enjoy saltwater
fishing?
If it's been awhile since you
last wet a hook, or if it's some-
thing you've always wanted to
try, the Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission is
providing some incentive to get
you and your family out on the
water.
You won't need a saltwater
fishing license anywhere in
Florida during the weekend of
.June 18-19.
The FWC first announced
this opportunity for anglers at
the April 19 Cabinet meeting in
Panama City with the support
of Gov. Rick Scott and the
Cabinet.
"We hope the public will take
advantage of the license-free
fishing weekend and reconnect'
with fishing," said Nick Wiley,
FWC executive director. "Flor-
ida is the fishing capital of the
world, and there is no better
time ,than now to enjoy our
many natural resources."
SNot only is recreational salt-
water fishing fun, it's good for
Florida. Each year, both resi-
dent and visiting saltwater an-
glers contribute more than $5.4
billion to Florida's economy.

Shevaun Brandom Becomes
The Bride Of Don Faulkner


Shevaun N. Brandom of La
Mesa, Calif., became the bride
of Donald M. Faulkner III of
Wauchula on the afternoon of
Saturday, May 7, 2011.
The bride is the daughter of
Don and Jeri Brandom of La
Mesa. The groom is the son of
Don Jr. and Renee Faulkner of
Wauchula.
The couple exchanged mar-
riage vows in the La- Mesa
home of the bride's parents. The
ceremony commenced at 3
o'clock, with the bride's sister,
Jessica Brandom, officiating.
The wedding maintained a
Disney theme throughout.
The bride was given in mar-
riage by her father. She wore a
strapless white gown graced
with a matching veil.
Tending to the bride as maid
of honor was her sister, Jessica
Brandom. Scattering rose petals
upon the bride's path was
flower girl Lyria Hrabal, the
groom's niece.
Serving the groom as best
man was his brother, Reuben

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
The Lord says, "I am the
One who forgives all your
sins, for My sake; I will not
remember your sins".
Isaiah 43:25 (NCV)
FRIDAY
The conclusion of the matter
is this: there is no condem-
nation for those who are
united with Christ Jesus (by
faith), because in Christ
Jesus the life-giving (eternal)
law of the Spirit has set you
free from the law of sin and
death (eternal).
Romans 8:1 ,(NEB)
SATURDAY
Don't be impatient. Wait for
the Lord and He will come
and save you! Be brave; be
stouthearted and coura-
geous. Yes, wait and He will
help you.
Psalm 27:23-24 (TLB)
SUNDAY
No, whoever wants to be
great must become the ser-
vant of all; and if he wants to
be first among you, he must
be your slave just as the
Son of Man (Jesus) has not,
come to be served, but to
serve, and to give His life to
set many others free (eter-
nally).
Matthew 20:41 (PME)
MONDAY
All who fear (respect) the
Lord will hate evil. That is
why I (the Lord) hate pride,
arrogance, corruption and
perverted speech. Good
advice and success belong
to Me. Insight and strength
are Mine.
Proverbs 8:13-14 (NLT)
TUESDAY
Learn restraint and do not
rush into judgment without
knowing all the facts. It's
important to look at things
from God's point of view. I
would rather not see you
inflating or deflating reputa-
tions based on mere
hearsay.
/ Corinthians 4:7 (ME)
WEDNESDAY
I know that my Redeemer
lives and that in the end (of
time) He will stand upon the
earth. And after my skin has
been destroyed, yet in my
flesh I shall see God. I
myself will see Him with my
own eyes I and not anoth-
er. How my heart yearns
within me.

Week ending June 12, 2011
Weather Summary: Florida's producers watched the skies for
evidence of the beginning of the rainy season, usually well under-
way,in June. However, they were not rewarded with the extensive
showers and cooler temperatures needed to improve growing con-
ditions for the young crops. Eight of the 36 Florida Automated
Weather Network (FAWN) stations reported more than an inch of
rain. The most rainfall fell at Sebring (2.58 inches) and Carrabelle
(2.13 inches): The U.S. Drought Monitor rating showed that 82
percent of the land area experienced a moderate, severe, extreme,
or exceptional drought. Another 11 percent of the area was rated as
being abnormally dry. Nearly the entire Panhandle was rated as
being in a severe or extreme, drought. The southern Peninsula area
was in an extreme or exceptional drought. Months of below normal
precipitation continued to deplete the water level in Lake
Okeechobee. The water level was three feet below normal for this
time of year, and one foot above the record low of 8.82 feet set in
July 2007. The South Florida Water Management District contin-
ued to monitor the declining water level for updating decisions on
water restrictions. Temperatures were normal to five degrees above
normal at major cities. Daytime high temperatures were in the mid
90s with extremes of 100 degrees reported at Marianna and Quincy
FAWN stations. Low temperatures were mostly in the low 60s. The
Florida Department of Agriculture's Division of Forestry reported'
that there were 310 wildfires that covered 283,000 acres and 44
wild fires that exceeded 100 acres across the State.
Field Crops: Across the Panhandle, emerged crops withered
under the hot, dry conditions. High temperatures stressed even irri-
gated crops. Topsoil and subsoil moisture ratings were mostly short
or very short. Many Panhandle counties had cotton, corn, and
peanut acreage that was replanted or will be replanted soon. In
Wakulla County, there were several hundred acres of cotton that
needed to be replanted mostly due to the drought, but also partial-
ly due to deer grazing the young stands. In Dixie County, crop irri-
gation continued. River and pond water levels were low, and some
shallow wells were dry. Cotton and peanuts were planted in dry
soils with hopes that a rain will help the crops emerge and thrive.
Peanut planting was 96 percent completed, the same as last year,
and compares with the five-year average of 93 percent. The peanut
crop condition was reported as 23 percent very poor, 30 percent
poor, 38 percent fair, and 9 percent good.-
Vegetables: The harvesting of most types of spring vegetables
had concluded for the season. Producers continued harvesting and


June 16, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 3B
marketing okra, tomatoes, and watermelons. Only light amounts of
cherry tomatoes were harvested. The tomato harvest continued in
Gadsden County. In Okaloosa County, leaffooted bugs and stink
bugs damaged tomatoes. Also, bacterial wilt disease in tomato
fields was worse due to the extreme hot temperatures that reached
nearly 100 degrees. The disease pressure in melons was low due to
the drought. In Flagler County the potato harvest was nearly fin-
ished. Southern Florida vegetable producers were being impacted
by the water limitations due to the low water levels in Lake
Okeechobee.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide the pasture was in very
poor to good condition, with most very poor. The cattle were in
very poor to excellent condition, with most in poor to fair condi-
tion. The cattle condition deteriorated due to poor pasture condi-
tions and high temperatures. Economical supplemental hay and
commodity feeds were in short supply. In the Panhandle and north-
ern areas, the pasture condition was very poor to good, with over
half the locations in very poor or poor condition. High tempera-
tures and dry weather continued to hamper pasture and cattle con-
ditions with a few scattered showers giving some relief to pastures.
Pastures in most areas were depleted and most livestock were being
fed hay. Weaning weights will be lighter this year. Creep feeding
and early weaning was being implemented. in some herds to.pro-
vide relief for the brood cow herd. In the central and southwest
areas, the pasture condition ranged from very poor to excellent,
with most pasture in poor to fair condition. Local areas have not yet
benefitted from a rain last week. The cattle condition ranged from
very poor to excellent, with most in poor to fair condition.
Citrus: Temperatures remained in the mid 60s at night and the
mid 90s during the day for the majority of the week. There was
moderate rainfall during the week, with 18 stations receiving some
rainfall, six of them receiving an inch or more. Sebring recorded
the most, with 2.58 inches. Exceptional drought conditions existed
in Palm Beach and Martin counties. Extreme drought conditions
existed in the southeastern portion of the State, with the most
severe conditions in Indian River, St Lucie, and parts of Brevard,
Collier, Highlands, Hendry, and Glades counties. Twelve packing-
houses and 12 processors were still running. Processing plants
were running Valencia oranges and will continue to operate
through mid to late June. Grove activity last week included har-
vesting, resetting new trees, young tree care, applying herbicides,
hedging/topping, brush removal, and fertilizer application.

It's believed that the first braces were constructed in
France by Pierre Fauchard in 1728. These braces con-
sisted of a flat strip of metal connected to the teeth by
pieces of thread.

BODY BUILDERS


COURTESY PHOTO
The fifth-grade class of Micaela Hall at Zolfo Springs Elementary School recently had a special visitor in Michael
Thomas, a personal trainer through his company, Team Daysiah, and a body-building competitor. Thomas took the
second-place trophy in his first competition, and on June 4 won first place trophy at the NPC Florida District show
in Lakeland. Thomas (at right in rear) brought his trophies and explained to the students how hard work and dedi-
cation pay off in everything that you do. He also talked to them about eating healthy and staying active to live full
and long lives. The students participated in a pushup contest, and Thomas said he was pleasantly surprised that a
girl won.


Fitness Made Simpler


Making healthy life-style
changes may have just gotten a
little easier.
Many health clubs are open-
ing their doors, free, for several
days as part of the annual Get
Active America! program.
Participating clubs will enroll
members and nonmembers in
the Presidential Active Lifestyle
Award's (PALA) "Million
PALA Challenge," asking peo-
ple to commit to being active
five days a week for at least six
out of eight weeks. For adults,
this entails 30 minutes of exer-
cise a day-or 8,500 steps. For
children, this entails 60 minutes
a day, or 11,000 steps for girls
and 13,000 steps for boys.
The clubs will provide en-
rollees with support and en-
couragement, including club-
based activities, community
walks and sometimes e-news-
letters. This includes "Bring a
Friend" days, when clubs invite
current members to bring their
friends and family to get physi-
cally active at the club; and
"Open House" days, when clubs
open their doors to the public,
free of charge, to help everyone
feel supported in adopting more
physically active, healthier
lifestyles.
A joint initiative between the
President's Council on Fitness,
Sports and Nutrition and Let's
Move! championed by First
Lady Michelle Obama the


"Million PALA Challenge"
aims to get at least 1 million
Americans to sign up and
achieve the award.
"It's hard to make healthy
life-style changes without the
support of those around you,"
says Joe Moore, president and
CEO of the International
Health, Racquet & Sportsclub
Association. "Health clubs offer
inspiration and the support peo-
ple need to springboard into
healthier, more active lifestyles-
so they won't feel alone in
doing it."
Here are some easy ways to
get started:
Join a gym.
Sign up for a group exer-
cise class.
Take the stairs instead of an
elevator.
Bike to work or school, to
run errands or to visit friends.
Walk the dog.
Join a sports team.
Do yard work.
Walk to the store.
Park at the far end of the
lot.
Anyone who wants to live a
healthier, happier and more ful-
filling life is encouraged to par-
ticipate in Get Active America!

June 16, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 5B


The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
wrapped up its two-day meeting
in St. Augustine last week.
It accepted staff recommen-
dations on state-threatened
species; discussed marine fish-
eries issues of concern to
anglers, commercial fishermen
and specimen collectors; ap-
proved.hunting issues for deer
and alligators; and dealt with
other wildlife-related issues.
On Wednesday, commission-
ers elected Kathy Barco of
Jacksonville to serve as chair-
woman and Kenneth Wright of
Winter Park as vice chairman.
.Their terms are for one year.
Outgoing Chairman Rodney
Barreto served six one-year
terms as chairman.
"I am honored to be elected
to serve in this role and grateful
to my predecessor for his exam-
ple to us all," Barco said.
Commissioners on Wednes-
day approved staff's listing rec-
ommendations for 61 species
following a presentation on
Biological Statys Reviews for
species currently listed by the
state as "threatened" or "species
of special concern."
Twenty-seven members of
the public provided a variety of
comments on the listing issue.
Forty species will remain listed
as threatened, 16 species will be
removed from the list, and five
species will remain as species
of special concern.
A change in status of the
species will not occur until


management plans are brought
back to the commission for
approval.
Also on Wednesday, commis-
sioners approved revisions to
the permitting guidelines for
gopher tortoises to ensure the
keystone species thrives in
Florida. The revisions reduce
monitoring requirements for
landowners who receive gopher
tortoises on their property and
modify the conservation permit
to include an on-site relocation
option for certain public proj-
ects.
The revisions are part of the
FWC's adaptive management
strategy to ensure the most
effective gopher tortoise con-
servation in balance with the
needs of Floridians.
FWC staff and commission-
ers discussed the anchoring and
mooring pilot program on
Wednesday. Commissioners
selected the city of Stuart, in
partnership with Martin Coun-
ty, as a program site. FWC staff
will work with each of the sites
involved in the program, in-
cluding the cities of Sarasota,
St. Petersburg and St. Augus-
tine 'and Monroe County, to
develop ordinances pertaining
to anchoring and mooring in
each jurisdiction.
Also on Wednesday, comrtis-'
sioners:

order implementing 'new deer

his highly acclaimed artwork.
Then on Thursday. the com-
mission approved rule amend-
ments for permit, Florida pom-
pano and African pompano that
expand their protection to off-
shore federal waters beyond
Florida state waters, where the
fish currently aren't protected,
and created separate conserva-
tion-management strategies for
these species.
Some of the key changes for
permit include,creating a spe-
cial South Florida Permit Man-
agement Zone that includes a
three-month closed season, and
adjusting size and bag limits.
The new rules also modify cer-
tain Florida and African pom-
pano rules. These rule amend-
ments are expected to take

Make safety a priority in your
home when you clean. Here are
tips to help:
Living Room/Dining Room
Secure all bookcases.
shelving and heavy furniture.
Place heavier items on lower
shelves and in bottom drawers.
Many houseplants are poi-
sonous and pots-are heavy, so
keep them out of reach of little
hands.
Use plug protectors for all
unused wall outlets.
Bathroom
To prevent bathwater
scalds, set the thermostat of
your hot water heater no higher
than 120 degrees F. It takes just
three seconds for a child to sus-
tain a third degree burn at 140
degrees F


Always request child-
resistant packaging for medi-
cine. but go a step further by
making sure medicine cabinets
are locked at all times. Even
items that may seem harmless
can be dangerous to a child.
Kitchen
Keep sharp knives and
other utensils well out of reach
and make sure that knife blades
are pointing down when placed
in a dishwasher's cutlery basket.
When cooking, always use
the back burners, turn pot han-
dles toward the back of the
stove and keep hot foods and
liquids away from young chil-
dren.
And make sure micro-
waves are out of reach of chil-
dren as well; the vast majority
of microwave burns among
children are serious scald burns.


Bedroom
Make sure cribs are proper-
ly assembled and meet current
safety standards, and that crib
mattresses fit snugly.
According to the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety
Commission, infants and young
children can die from acciden-
tally strangling in window
cords. The Window Covering
Safety Council reminds parents
and caregivers of potential win-
dow-cord dangers and urges
them to make the right choice
and use only cordless window
products in homes with young
children. Owners and renters
should replace all corded win-.
dow coverings made before
2001 with today's safer prod-
ucts. Visit www.windowcover-
ings.org for a free retrofit kit or

From The Heart d
By David Kelly


SERMON TWO, PART ONE
In I Peter 4:1-11, we see how we can be stewards of God's
grace by living for God:
"Therefore, since Christ suffered in His body, arm yourselves
also with the same attitude, because whoever suffers in the body is
done with sin. As a result, they do not live the rest of their earthly
lives for evil human desires, but rather for the will of God. For you
have spent enough time in the past doing what pagans choose to
do, living in debauchery, lust, drunkenness, orgies, carousing and
detestable idolatry. They are surprised that you do not join them in
their reckless, wild living, and they heap abuse on you.
"But they will have to give account to Him who is ready to
judge the living and the dead. For this is the reason the Gospel was
preached even to those who are now dead, so that they might be
judged according to human standards in regard to the body, but
live according to God in regard to the spirit.
"The end of all things is near Therefore be alert and of sober
mind so that you may pray. Above all, love each other deeply,
because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to
one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever
gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's
grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as
one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they
should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things
God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and
the power for ever and ever Amen"
Last week we talked about the God, God the Father, God the
Son and God the Holy Spirit, Today I want to talk about one per-
son of the trinity, God the Father.
After reading our passage you may find it a stretch to see
exactly what I'm trying to show you in the short time we have here
this morning, but I want you to remember this series, "The Father's
Love."
Last week we talked about The God, that love was from God
and because God loved us we can love others. This week we will
see how Jesus, fully God and fully man, saw God as Father, He did
not think that equality with God was something to be grasped.
Look at Philippians 2:5-11:
"In your relationships with one another, have the same mind-
set as Christ Jesus, Who, being in very nature God, did not con-
sider equality with God something to be used to His own advan-
tage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of
a servant, being made.in human likeness.
"And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled
Himself by becoming obedient to death, even death on a cross!
Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the
name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every
knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and
every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of
God the Father "
Let's begin by taking a big picture view of the first two verses
of our passage in 1 Peter 4.
Jesus suffered to end the penalty of sin for us, He suffered to
defeat the power of sin over us, He didn't live in the flesh for
human passions but for the will of God, God the Father!
So what if we suffer? Seriously, what does it matter? I've suf-
fered a lot lately, so have you. Some of your suffering is what
makes me suffer.
So what are we to make of it? Does it matter that we suffer?
Yes, it matters to God. He has given us victory over sin! He has
given us His Word to arm ourselves with the mind of Christ. He has
given us Jesus Himself!
When Jesus suffered in the flesh, what did He do? He cried out
to His Daddy! His Father! God the Father, please take this away, if
not please help Me through, because I know My Dad cares, My
Dad loves, My Dad gives.
What should we do when we suffer, blame everyone around
us, blame ourselves, or run to God the Father and bow the knee to
our selfish pride, our self-centered, limited, myopic view and ask
that His will be done?
What great news! We aren't dead in sin, yet we are living for
the will of God, in Christ Jesus; and not just living, we-are living
with blessings upon blessings, with grace upon grace from our
heavenly Father.
We have been made holy priests, co-heirs with Christ; we have
been given the Helper in the Holy Spirit; we are children of the liv-
ing, everlasting Father.
Lead your life so you wouldn't be ashamed to sell the
family parrot to the town gossip.

SEEKING APPROVAL
There is a story about a young musician who studied under a
world-renowned master.
Eventually the musician was set to give a final recital. After
each selection, the crowd cheered loudly for what they perceived to
be a great performance. All the while, the young musician only
seemed more and more dissatisfied during each number.
Finally, at the end of the show as everyone cheered, an old man in
the back stood and nodded approvingly. It was then that the young
musician was able to relax and enjoy the crowd's response to his
efforts.
It is good to have the approval of men.
The Scriptures tell us that we are to have a good reputation in
the world. Paul would tell Timothy that the elders are to have "a
good testimony among those who are outside," 1Timothy 3:7.
Titus was instructed to "Likewise exhort the young men to be
sober-minded, in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good
works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility,
sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an oppo-
nent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you," Titus 2:6-
8.
Even though the approval of men can be good, it should not be
our focus.

I am Mosaic.

As an agricultural scientist, I help farmers bring
more to your table. Mosaic provides American
farmers with crop nutrients that are essential
to supplying food for our growing world. My

And I never take it for granted.

Luke records the words of Jesus in Luke 6:26, "Woe to you
when all men speak well of you." We run a great risk if doing our
righteousness in order to be seen by men. In fact, that sort of moti-
vation is condemned by Jesus in Matthew, Chapter 6.
We need to be concerned about the approval of God!
The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 10:18, "For not he
who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord com-
mends." Our desire should be to hear the words of the Lord record-
ed in Matthew 25:21, "Well done, good and faithful servant ...
Enter into the joy of your Lord."
Let us get back to the basics and read, study and obey God's
Word.

Rejected by a college, the
banker's son said to his father, "If
you really cared for me, you'd have
pulled some wires to get me into
college."
"I know," said the father, "the TV,
the telephone and the ignition
wires pulled out would have done
for a start."
But the man with a push will
pass the man with a pull.
Forever achievement, there's a
cost. For every goal there's a foe.
For every victory, there's a
sacrifice. For every triumph,
there's a struggle..
The Bible says, "Work hard so
God can say to you, 'Well done.'
Be a good workman, one who does
not need to be ashamed when God
examines your work."


When the Pilgrims held their first Thanksgiving
celebration, it wasn't a new idea, it was a new setting.
On a strange shore, barely settled and surrounded by
dangers, but grateful for the bounty God provided, they
found a way to say thanks to Him. Wherever we are,
whatever our circumstances, He provides. Take time this
week to say "Thank you, God". Worship with family and
friends and honor that first Thanksgiving celebration.

HE ENLISTED 2 WEEKS BEFORE BEING DRAFTED


By STEPHANIE BELMARES
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your name?
A: William John Gill.
Q: When and where were you
born?
A: I was born in New Jersey in 1948,
in Elizabeth City.
Q: Did you have a favorite item or
toy? If so, where did you get it from?
A: I think my bicycle was my
favorite toy; my uncle gave it to me.
Q: What were the most popular
music bands or groups while you
were growing up?
A: Let me see, the Rolling Stones,
the Beatles, those are probably the two
biggest. And there were some Motown
groups like the Temptations.
Q: What school did
you attend? Where
at? Was it private or t
public school?
A: I attended a cou- <
ple of schools. I attend-
ed Homestead High School and also a
school in California called Moorpark
High School. They were public schools.
Q: Did you have any transporta-
tion to school?
A; Yeah, a bicycle. I didn't ride the
bus when I was in high school. When I
was in elementary, I rode the bus
because my mom was the bus driver, so
I rode it to school.
Q: Did you live close to the
schools?
A: Not really. One of the schools was
pretty far away, but the other school
was probably about maybe a mile and a
half or so.
Q: If a child got sick or hurt at
school, how did they contact their
parents?
A: It was by phone, which was the
most common way of doing it to con-
tact their family members.
Q: What were your favorite activi-
ties or sports to do in school? At
home?
A: I liked all sports. I was always in
all kinds of sports, either in school or
out of school. Sometimes I did two
sports at the same time. ..
When I was in high school you could
do two sports. I played baseball and ran
track at the same time. I would run
track and then I would go over and put
my uniform on and play baseball.
I liked sports, so I was in every sport
I could get into one way or the other.
When I wasn't in school sports I would
play the local stuff like baseball, basket-
ball and anything else that was going on
and that I could get to play.
Q: Did you have any jobs while
you were still in school?
A: Yeah, I did. I worked in a restau-
rant cleaning it at night after sports
practice and stuff was over. I did that,
then I did it on the weekends.
Q: How many students were in
your graduating class?
A: Seventy-three.
Q: What kind of funding for col-
lege was available?
A: Well, there was some grant money
available: there were some scholarships
and some student loans. But, there was-
n't a lot available and that kind of dis-
couraged people to go to college
because there wasn't a lot of funding.
Q: How many years of college did
you have to attend to become a physi-
cian assistant? Was there any special
training involved?
A: I spent six years in school, and
almost all of it was special training
because it was a professional school, so
all the training was really focused on
the professionalside. And after six
. years of training I spent another year in
fellowship, which is an additional, train-
ing beyond 'the basics. So, I ended up
spending about seven years on real for-
mal education which was directed by
teachers and such.
Q: What college did you attend?
A: I attended the University of
Alabama and the University of
Nebraska.
Q: Did you have a lot of encour-
agement from your parents to stay in


I.


school and'do well?
A: I did pretty well in school grade-
wise, although I had a lot of other
things going on. I think all parents have
to focus, or should have that focus, on
encouraging their children.
Unfortunately my family was not
really well-off financially, so it was
very difficult to, at some point, to try to
go to school, because we did not have


the financial base to do that. After about
a year of school, I kind of ran out of my
own personal money that I made over
the summer. So, I went to the military
so I could use the GI Bill to go ahead
and finish school.
Q: When did you realize you want-
ed to be in the medical field?
A: Early on. I was probably in the
junior high. At first, I wanted to be an
engineer because I liked math and
drawing, but when I got into some dif-
ferent sciences in the last couple years
of high school, I really liked that a lot
more than math. I really liked the natu-
ral sciences, so I think that is really
when I took off about really wanting to
do something in medicine.
Q: Do you like your job?
A: I love it. I wouldn't
do anything else, and it's not
work for me. It's sad for me to
see people who are in jobs that
they don't like to do, that they
don't feel good about going to
every day, and aren't doing what they
do well.
Q: When you started being in the
military, were you drafted in or was it
your choice to be in it?
A: Before I went into the military, I
was actually drafted first. I got a draft
notice when I was 18 or 19 years old.
The draft was a lottery, and what they
did was they took all of the birthdays
and they put them in, 365 days, and
then picked out days and whatever that
day was, was the first day on the list,
the second day on the list, and so on.
My birthday was number two, so it
was pretty much a given that I was
going to be drafted. And I got a notice
shortly after, but I had already been
down to the enlistment board, which
was called "the recruiters," and the
enlistment board had already started the
process to list me into the Army.
I actually started about two weeks
before I got the draft notice. So, I was
drafted but I never really had to be
drafted.
I've spent 41 years in and out of uni-
form. I still help out. It's another one of
those things that if'y6'uhave"greaf pas-'
sion and feel like you're doing same-
thing to help out your fellow country,
it's a wonderful thing that you can
strive for. It feels like you're contribut-
ing to the folks you care about and the
place that you live.
Q: Based on what you see and
hear, how would you compare school
now from when you were in school?
A: When I was in school I think
there was significantly more discipline
in the classroom.
I think there as a different level of
respect for authority, and the disrespect
for teachers or authority didn't exist.
Not only would you be scrutinized by
the teachers, but your classmates as
well. Because it was inappropriate bad
behavior, the other kids wouldn't'put up
with that.
But I think that's one of the things,
discipline and the respect that yof have
for the authority of the teacher, for the
school, and the environment that you
live in.
Being able to go to school is truly a
gift; there are places in the world where'
that does not happen. It's unfortunate
that we don't appreciate and respect that
as much as we should.
The other thing is the number of ille-
gal drugs that go through the school
system,, at .all levels.
I knew they were there, but it was
never really an issue that those things
would ever be in the school. But now,
it's all the way down to the elementary
school level and those things didn't
exist and we didn't have to deal with it.
And I think it's a really sad thing to see
kids have to deal with that.
The gang issues, there were always
little gangs like people who hung out
together, little groups and stuff like that,
but we really didn't have any organized
gangs, like people who wore colors.
I werit to a school once in California
that was multi-ethnic and we never had
an issue with race because everyone got


along with each other.
Q: What types of electronics were
there when you were growing up?
A: The very first thing we had was a
transistor radio, which was a'small
radio about the size of a deck of cards.
It was given to me by my grandfather as
a Christmas gift.
The other thing was a calculator I
used in high school for calculus class,


which the thing was huge!
Television, black and white, with
only three stations, and that was in a big
metropolitan area in South Florida.
ABC was my favorite station because it
had all kinds of sports on it. Cell
phones and walkie-talkies did not even
exist; computers came at a later time in
the 1980s.
Q: Since you like sports, which
sport is your favorite?
A: I still like football a lot. I think
there is a correlation of football in soci-
ety. It's a lesson learned when you have
to cooperate with other people.
It's difficult, it's not supposed to be
easy; it's not always the outcome you
want it to be, but when you do win it's


because the team's personal efforts
made it there. And it teaches you about
discipline and respect for others, you
also get to interact with people who
aren't necessarily your enemies, but are
your competition, so it sets you up for
business and other things in life. You
not only receive their physical competi-
tive sense, but their mental competitive
sense as well.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

June 16, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 5C


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

75 YEARS AGO
W.C. King, chairman of the
county Board of County Com-
missioners, announced yester-
day that the Zolfo Springs pool
will re-open to the public
tomorrow. The pool has been
repaired and re-cemented, and a-
cement bottom added. The pub-
lic is warned about diving too
deeply.

When the Board of County
Commissioners met recently, it
approved regulations of the
State Board of Welfare's old
age pension. Hardee County is
to give the sum of $936 this
quarter and it will be matched
dollar for dollar from federal
funds.

A public works project of the
Works Progress Administration
made a loan of $16,000 and an
outright grant of $13,091 for the
city of Wauchula's water sys-
tem expansion, including a
250,000-gallon tank, additional
well and 4,660 feet of water
main pipes.

Groff Clothing Co. offers
specials for veterans receiving
an extra bonus check. The
$3.50 will be discounted from
any suit in the store. A regular
$24.50 wool suit, with two pair
of pants, will cost just $21.

50 YEARS AGO
Postmaster Troy Smith and
clerk Joe Jones are shown in the
new Bowling Green Post
Office, which will be dedicated
tomorrow at 2 p.m. Built at a
cost of about $40,000, it is the
first built especially for the
Bowling Green Post Office and
is about a third larger than the
old office in the bank building.
The post office now has two
mail routes and handles twice
the volume of stamps it did 10
years ago. It has I1 employees.

State Sen. G.W. "Dick"
Williams, of Wauchula, has


been named "the most outstand-
ing first termer in the Senate" in
the biennial poll of the Florida
Legislature. He is in his first
term as a state senator after
serving 10 years as the Hardee
County representative in the
House of Representatives. He
served on committees on appro-
priations and citrus, and was
chairman of the pensions and
claims committee. He succeed-
ed in passing every bill except
one which he introduced,
including a bill raising the
penalty for pollution of the
Peace River from $500 to
$10,000.

The Gardner-Fish Branch
Road, the first completed under
the county's $1,800,000 road
construction bond program,
was formally opened Tuesday
morning by County Commis-
sioner Luke Waldron, in whose
district the road is located. He
cut the red ribbon officially
opening the three-and-a-half
miles of new paving. More than
100 residents of the community
made the first trip over the road
to Fish Branch, where a big bar-
becue was waiting. Also partic-
ipating in the ceremony was
Fish Branch Community Club
President Glen Bowen.

The erection of new residen-
tial street lights to replace those
lost to Hurricane Donna is pro-
gressing "as rapidly as possi-
ble," said Public Works Super-
intendent George Burris.
Crews have been called away
to clear city utilities for the state
paving of Carlton and Town-
send streets. The city is putting
up the new 175-watt mercury
vapor lights in residential dis-
tricts, with 250-watt and 400-
watt lights along Main Street.

25 YEARS AGO
Statewide Student
Assessment Test scores for
Hardee County's 1985-86 10th
graders show gains over last
year in all areas but application
of math skills. Comparing
scores to that of their counter-
parts regionally and statewide
shows Hardee leads them all.
Hardee teens have equaled or
surpassed 10th graders around


WayBackWh
-- i-a


the state, scoring 93 percent in
composite scores, 91 percent in
communications and 88 percent
in math. Regional scores were
93, 90 and 82 respectively,
while statewide they were 92,
89 and 83 respectively.

Judge Earl Collins, Chief
Judge William Norris Jr., court
administrator Nick Sudzina and
Hardee County Sheriff Doyle
Bryan, together with other judi-
cial personnel, held a special
meeting with county commis-
sioners last week to discuss
courthouse security. Prompted
by increased acts of violence in
courtrooms and the recent mur-
der of a judge in Orange
County, Bryan presented a
report on seven problems in
courthouse security and short-
range and long-range solutions.

County commissioners held a
workshop last week with coun-

ty building official C.J. "Koch"
Mroczkza on the anti-litter law
and zoning ordinances. Com-
mission Chairman Benny Al-
britton said recent enthusiasm
for the county's designation as a
Blue Chip Community and
rezoning requests not allowed
meant the commission should
make some changes. Garbage
and junk around the county was
. discussed first, then they talked
about allowing commercial
uses in agtH.;:turally zoned
land.

Real estate available this
week includes: a 3BR, IB home
on one acre on a paved street
two miles from Wauchula for
$30,000; a 2BR, 2B double-
wide mobile home with sun-
room, detached carport and util-

10 YEARS AGO
The Hardee County School
Board is considering adding
one acre of land to its property
rolls. The tract, at 202 W. Bell
St., is just behind the Education
Center district office at 1001
U.S. 17 N. and could provide
additional space for expansion
and storage. The 22,881-
square-foot site contains a
duplex and was appraised at
$58,000.

The Hardee County Airport
Task Force is looking at the
possibility of flying fresh agri-
cultural products to all parts of
the world within 72 hours and
accepting cargo in a duty-free
zone. Mined-out phosphate
land at the west end of the coun-
ty could be used for such a pro-

North Wauchula Elementary School recently hosted its eighth annual "Go Take A Hike" walkathon to raise funds for
its Physical Education Department. Forty students in the walkathon qualified to participate in a field trip to Lowry
Park Zoo in Tampa. The students were privileged to take a behind the scenes tour of the zoo's African Safari animals.

8C The Herald-Advocate, June 16, 2011


Greetings from Fort Green!
The old saying is you don't
have anything to say when all
you talk about is the weather
but, Lordie Mercy, it is hot and
dry! I heard on the news that the
Medicine Man down in the
Indian Territory had prayed for
rain and it had rained, so we all
need to begin praying for rain.
Little Karson Goodwyn was
very happy last week when it
was announced at Bowling
Green Elementary that she had
won the Dr. Manic Heartland
Pediatric Award. A person is
chosen from each second grade
and then the winner is selected
from this group. The award is
for a student who shows leader-
ship, scholastic ability and citi-
zenship. She got a plaque and,
very important, a $25 gift card!
Congratulations, Karson.
Tamara and Anthony Griffith
and their parents also went to
state bowling recently in Orlan-
do. They both did real good,
and Tamara got her first turkey!
Now for those who are not
familiar with bowling, this is
three strikes in a row. Congratu-
lations!
Clay Samuels is spending the
summer with his grandparents,
and Mary reported that he
received a five on the reading
portion and a four on the math
part of the FCAT. His grandpar-
ents are very proud of him. He
still continues to race and par-
ticipate in judo. He is really a
dedicated young man and de-
serves lots of congratulations.
The Fort Green Fellowship
Hall has been reserved for the
2012 Cooper Reunion. It will be
the second Saturday in June, or
June 9, 2012. This will give
everyone plenty of time to mark
their calendars and not let any-
thing take precedence!
Buck Toole was in the Lake-
land hospital for a short while.
When he went, he kept telling
them he did not need to be in
the hospital but they ignored
him! He required some addi-
tional tests but is already home
again. He is still very weak and
needs prayer.
Our sincere sympathy is


extended to the family of Mil-
ton Lanier. A group of us from
church usually go to Wendy's
every Sunday night, and quite
often we would get to speak to
him, as they would be there.
Brother Ed Howell and wife
Pat attended Fort Green last
Sunday. We were happy to see
them as always, but it was spe-
cial as last Sunday was Mr.
Blink's big day. Next year will
be his 100th birthday and we
are really going to have a super
time. His two grandsons, John
and Jimmy, and their families
were down for the special occa-
sion. One lives near Columbus,
Ohio, and one lives in the
Maryland/D.C. area.
Other friends of the Blinks
were also present. Lila's brother
was not able to attend as he had
special physical treatment last
Friday and felt his back just
would not be able to stand the
drive! Larry Pelton was one of
Mr. Blink's special guests, and
he said Mr. Blink had told him
many a story about the "good
ol' days."
Tara McGaughey read a little
of the history of Mr. Blink. He
was in the Navy during World
War II. They did not have the
Navy Seals back then, but if
they had, I am sure he would
have been their number one
man! Nancy McQuaig made the
birthday cake and it had a photo
of Mr. Blink and also photos of
the two airplanes that he made
from scratch. One is in the
Lakeland Air Museum.
Arthur Womack asked Bro-
ther Ed if he remembered bap-
tizing him on Easter Sunday in
2004. Brother Ed was quick to
say yes, just didn't remember
that is was Easter!
It does not seem possible but
this month is already half over.
Happy Father's Day to all the
fathers and everyone remember'
to come to VBS at Fort Green.
It begins this coming Sunday
night, Father's Day, at 5:30 for
supper. Sunday through Thurs-
day it will begin at 5:30 p.m. for
supper, but on Friday night it is
family night and will begin at 7.
On Friday night there will not


be supper but there will be
refreshments after the closing
program.
The closing program, or
Family Night, is Friday, June
24. Certain dates always jump


out at you and this was Kay's
birthday. His brother, Todd, will
turn 85 on June 25.
Please remember to pray for
one another, our country and
our military.
