County Commissioner Applies For City Manager


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Even before he submitted his
application on Monday, rumors
were rampant.
Hardee County Commission
Chairman Terry Atchley is the
latest applicant for the vacant
Wauchula city manager posi-
tion.
In fact, he's the only appli-
cant since the new Wauchula
City Commission decided at its
first meeting on June 13 to keep
the position open for another
month.
Rumors say the application


Governor Would Appoint His Replacement


period was held open just so
Atchley could apply and recent-
ly elected Wauchula Mayor/-
Chairman Rick Knight could be
appointed to the county com-
mission by Gov. Rick Scott.
Both men discount such
rumors.
It is still possible for anyone
else to apply. A city employ-
ment ad for today's and next
week's issues says the "applica-
tion deadline for the first review
is 5 p.m. on July 11."


When the city commission
meets in a workshop resched-
uled to 6 p.m. July 5 because of
the July 4 holiday, it is slated to
shortlist the available roster of
applicants to the top five.
The Vacancy
Atchley is the newest of a
baker's dozen of applicants to
fill the city manager position
vacated Aug. 18, 2010, by the
forced resignation of Rick
Giroux. They hope to fill his
position by the time his one-


year severance pay package
expires. Planning director Oli-
via Minshew has been acting
city manager.
The dozen other applicants
are Fred Baughman of Oak Hill,
Newall Daughtrey of Miami, H.
Randall Dilling of Port
Charlotte, Steven Henderson of
Winter Haven, Therese "Terry"
Leary of Hilton Head, S. C. and
formerly of Florida, Joseph
Miranti of St. Cloud, Luke B.
Olson of Kearney, Neb.,


Richard Perez of Sunrise, D.
Mack Seekinger of Guyton,
Ga., Kenneth Venables of
Palatka, Stephen Weeks of
Sebring and Kenneth Wheeler
of Avon Park.
Supervisor of Elections Jeff
Ussery explained on Tuesday
that since Atchley, elected in
2008, is past the half-way point
in his term, Gov. Scott would
name Atchley's replacement if
he is selected for the city man-
ager position.
According to Florida Statutes
Section 114.4, if a vacancy

FIREWORKS FIZLE Host Agency Says Sponsors Failed
FIREWORKS FIZZLE'To Make Good On Pledged Dollars


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Love of God, love of nation
and patriotic pride aside, there
will be no public fireworks dis-
plays in Hardee County this
July Fourth.
And the president of the host
agency which organized the
event at Pioneer Park in Zolfo
Springs for the past three years
blames politics and personali-
ties.
Dawn Atkinson-Jones, head
of the all but dissolved Hardee
County Youth Coalition, said
sponsors who pledged money
so the 2010 display could take
place failed to meet their com-
mitments, leaving the coalition

2nd Fire

At Home

An Arson
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"It didn't rekindle; it is under
investigation as an arson."
Hardee Fire-Rescue Chief
Mike Choate talked this week
about how a burned house last
week turned from bad to worse
Sin less than 24 hours.
Choate praised the C Shift
which had handled a fire at 408
N. Seventh Ave., Wauchula
about 10:30 last Tuesday night.
"They did such a good stop to
it," he said. The crew had used
thermal imaging to eliminate
any hot spots in both' the attic,
where that fire started, and the
interior of the home, which had
drop down spots from the attic.
Choate visited the home on
Wednesday afternoon about 4
p.m., going throughout the
home with the owner/residents.
They checked what the dam-
ages were.
Less than an hour later, he
returned with the A Shift crew
to find a fully involved fire
pouring out every window.
Choate said Det. Miles Davis of

amount of $24,800.
The civil action, filed by Port
Charlotte lawyer Albert J. Tiseo
Jr. of the firm of Goldman Tiseo
& Sturges, sought damages of
three times the bounced check
of $7,500 issued by the coali-
tion, a claim which is allowed


by Florida State Statutes.
In addition to that $22,500,
Garden State sought attorneys
fees at $250 an hour and court
costs of $500, ballooning the
defaulted $7,500 to the whop-
ping sum of $24,800.

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Respect for the property of
others is a lesson often taught in
Hardee County classrooms.
Iow it is moving to adminis-
trative and board offices.
Property owners Bill Bu-
benick and Daniel Bubenick
have alleged through Wauchula
attorney Ken Evers that the
Hardee County School Board
has violated the terms of a 2004
easement by placing a sign, a
gated, archway and chainlink
fencing at the U.S. 17 entrance
to the dual campus of Hardee
Junior High School and Hilltop
Elementary School.
The Bubenicks own the land
those improvements sit on.
The board has been given 90
days to begin removing all of
the above.
The matter will be placed on
the July 18 meeting agenda of
the School Board.
A June 16 letter to Board
Chairman Teresa Crawford
from Evers explains the situa-
tion clearly. He wrote:
"In 2004, (Bill and Daniel)
Bubenick sold the Hilltop prop-
erty to the School Board for
construction of the new school.


In connection with the sale, the
School Board was provided an
easement for ingress and egress
to the property over and across
lands retained by Bubenick.
"As you know, the board
placed fencing albng'the bound-
aries of the easement and gated
the entrance to the easement for
security purposes. The ease-
ment does not grant to the
School Board the right to place
fencing and gate the easement.
"Bubenick conveyed only an
easement to the board so that
they did not effectively split
their remaining (U.S.) Highway'
17 frontage property. The
School Board has effectively
severed the remaining Bube-
nick parcel into two parcels by
and through its election to place
fencing and (a) security gate on
the easement in contravention
of the terms of the document,"
Evers wrote.
An Aug. 11, 2004, letter to
then-deputy superintendent
Rocky Kitchens from real-
estate paralegal Sue N. Roman
of the Sebring law office of
John K. McClure affirms that
claim.
It refers to an easement

Legoland Florida will open Oct. 15 in Winter Haven. This will
be a major family tourist attraction. One projection estimates there
will be two million visitors a year. This is the old Cypress Gardens
site.

Congratulations to Wauchula's J.A. Clark, who has been reap-
pointed by Gov. Rick Scott to the Florida Citrus Commission,
which now has 9 instead of 11 members. Jay brings a lot of agri-
cultural experience and leadership to the table.

Rev. Steve Polk was pastor of First United Methodist Church
in Bowling Green for the past six years. This Sunday he will
become the new pastor of the Methodist Church in Lake Gibson in
north Lakeland.
The new Bowling Green Methodist pastor will begin her new
ministry Sunday. Her name is Rev. Amy Harper.

The rotarian magazine reports India has 1.2 billion-people with
a land mass of one-third of the United States, which has about 309
million people .. '
India is the world's large5r j-tducer of tea and milk And'
exports computer software to 90 countries. India's economy is
growing 8 to 9 percent a year.
About 81 percent of Indians are Hindus, 13.4 percent Muslim,
2.3 percent Christians, and 1.9 percent Sikhs. Some 52 percent of
Indians work in agriculture and 34 percent in service industries,
and 14 percent in industry.

A few farmers in south Georgia are planting olives, since olive
oil demand is growing and most comes from other countries. Some
blueberry growers are adding olives to their farms. Perhaps this
could become a Florida crop as well.

The Hardee Animal Rescue Team reported the county last year
took in over 1,100 dogs and cats. Only 92 dogs and 8 cats were
adopted. The rest were killed.
For a donation of $33.25 HART is offering to vacinate cats for
rabies and distemper and dogs for rabies and distemper-parvo, plus
spaying or neutering. Hardee Animal Clinic and Dr. Bill Lovett are
spearheading this drive to reduce the number of unwanted cats and
dogs in Hardee County. Call 773-2424.

Hardee Superintendent of Schools David Durastanti said last
week about 25 to 30 teachers will be hired between. now and the
beginning of school in the county. All principals have been rehired
for next year.
For 2011-12 the Florida Legislature and governor have cut
funding by about 8 percent, or $545 per student. This is on top of
other cuts in state funding in the last two or three years. "We are at
2002 funding levels from the state."
Hardee has about 5,000 students in K-12. Durastanti said
about 40 percent of administrative costs have been trimmed.
There is one mill (about $1.4 million) a year of local property
taxes that can be used for operating expenses. Previously it was
earmarked-for capital outlay costs--but local voters two or three
years ago approved the flexible funding.

The Center for Great Apes east of Wauchula has 44 great
apes--13 orangutans and 31 chimpanzees, reports founder and
president Patti Ragan. She said the 13 orangutans is the largest
population of adults in North America.
The mission is to provide a permanent lifetime sanctuary for
those great apes who have been retired from the entertainment
industry, research and the exotic pet trade. Patti was previously
affiliated with the city zoo in Miami. She has a wonderful facility
here. One of the chimps was owned by the late pop singer Michael
Jackson.

Congratulations to Wauchula native Jacqueline Waldron for
being selected as a 2011-12 Tampa Bay Bucs cheerlearder. She is
among the 34 from over 250 candidates to achieve the Bucs' cheer-
leading team. She is a 2005 graduate of Hardee High School and
2009 graduate of FSU. She's a school teacher in Tampa.
A former HHS cheerleader, Jacqueline has over 15 years of
dance lessons and was part of the FSU Circus. Her father Bill is in
citrus and worked on the local natural gas pipeline, and her mother
Arnell teaches careers at Hardee Junior High School.
The term is for one year. She trained six months for the tryout,
which included a one-mile run. Cheerleaders also do community
outreach and are not allowed to date Bucs players or coaches.

Th Piccadilly Circus will be held Wednesday, July 13, at 4:30
and 7:30 p.m. at the Fairgrounds Convention Center in Sebring.
Featured will be elephants, monkeys, kantunga the giant jungle
monster, and motorcycle madness plus other attractions.

The Florida Wildlife Federation reports the longest river in
Florida is the St. Johns River at 273 miles, one of the few rivers in
North America that flows north instead of south.

Florida (Madison) and Central Florida

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has recently issued new
guidelines for healthy eating, doing away with the old Food
Pyramid, reported the Lakeland Ledger June 3. Here are 10 USDA
tips:
1. Balance calories and stay physically active.
2. Enjoy your food but eat less.
3. Avoid oversized portions,
4. Eat more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fat-free or
one-percent milk and dairy products.
5. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables.
6. Switch to fat-free or-low-fat milk.
7. Make half your grains whole grains.
8. Foods to eat less often-foods high in solid fats, added
sugar and salt such ak cookies, cakes, ice cream, candies, sweet-
ened drinks, pizza, ribs, sausage, bacon and hot dogs.
9. Compare sodium in foods. Choose low sodium versions of
soup, bread and frozen meals.
10. Drink water instead of sugary drinks.

the State Fire Marshal's, Office
and Wauchula Police officers
secured the scene and are inves-
tigating it as arson because an
accelerant was found on the
scene.
According to the report of Lt.
Greg Pfeiffer, Fire-Rescue was
dispatched at 4:47 p.m. last
Wednesday and arrived at the
scene at 4:49. In all six units
were at the scene, three engines,
a tanker, a Hardee ambulance,
the Fire Chief's vehicle 'and a
unit from Fort Meade. Polk
County also sent an ambulance
to back up at the station if need-
ed on another call.
"It was a hot afternoon, hot
and humid. The fire was pour-
ing out and it was too hot to
enter the building, so we went
into a defensive mode to protect
the homes on the north and
south and the hotel east of the
residence," said Pfeiffer.
They brought the fire under
control by 5:45, but stayed at
the scene until 8 p.m. over-
hauling," pulling ceilings, etc.
-to ensure-there were no--stray -
embers. The power and gas had
been cut to the home the previ-
ous day and did not contribute
to the fire, Pfeiffer said.


The coalition, however, has
little more than $2,000 in the
bank.
"Basically, the judgment is
about as good as the paper it is
written on," Atkinson-Jones
said.
She said that, as president of
the coalition, she "stayed on"
after most other officers re-
signed in an attempt "to see this
through." She said Garden State
was offered $2,500 up front,
with the promise of a payment
plan for the remaining balance.
The company, however,
refused any negotiations to
.make good the debt, she said,
and proceeded with its lawsuit.
Until 2008, the Hardee
County Commission provided
the public fireworks display at
Pioneer Park. But, budget con-
straints took precedence and the
event was dropped.
The coalition, seeing the need
for the family event, picked up
the effort, hosting the fireworks
in 2008, 2009 and 2010.
It paid for the costly displays
via sponsors and pledges.
Atkinson-Jones said the day-
long activities and fireworks
display cost about $24,000
annually. It drew more than 400
children and their families.
The coalition had been debt-
free in providing the fun until
now, she added.
But in 2010, it became harder
to get individuals, businesses
and organizations to sponsor
the event with their donations.
Worse, some of those who did
make pledges did not pay them.
"They bailed out after the event
took place," she said.
Atkinson-Jones points to one
organization in particular,
which she declined to name,
that offered an initial $500 pay-
ment to the coalition and prom-
ised to obtain $3,000 more,
prompting the coalition officers
to move forward with the 2010
event.
It never paid the remaining
dollars.
She said the coalition "began


trying to track down promised
sponsorship monies with great
effort." She said she, Chuck
Dixon, Kim Congleton, Arnold
Lanier and Joyce Fulse attempt-
ed to collect pledged amounts.
"It became evident in Sep-
tember that we were not going
to receive the rest of the spon-
sorship money the coalition had
been promised," she said,
adding, "Frankly, dealing with
many of the sponsors was very
difficult, as phone calls and
office visits were avoided.
"And," she continued, "ulti-
mately the situation escalated to
childish name-calling, berating
and belittling of board mem-
bers, and finallynpegativecom-
ments and accusations by cer-
tain members of the community
against me personally."

She alleged there was a move
on to "discredit" her "so that
nobody would help and con-
tribute to the event." She
charged that the situation wors-
ened once she took out a quali-
fying packet to run for the
Wauchula City Commission.
It was personal and it was
politics, she alleged. "There is
no way these funds would be
outstanding if a different person
in the community had been the
one to put the event together."
All coalition board members
with the exception of Atkinson-
Jones and Dixon have since
resigned, she said. None are
personally responsible for the
financial judgment now on
record against the coalition.
"It is a shame the- way some
folks in this community treat
people," she lamented. "Unfor-
tunately there is a domino effect
which ultimately affects an
entire community, at least this
situation will affect an entire
community.
"There is no fireworks or
Fourth of July program in
*Hardee County at all now,"
Atkinson-Jones concluded, ask-
ing the pointed question, "So,
who does that serve?"

lously reviewyour credit card
and debit card statements. "Pay
attention to your bills!" Dey
advised.
A number of Hardee Coun-
tians have been affected, he
said. Several cases are currently
under investigation.
"There has been a tremen-
dous increase in the county," he
said of the cases. In fact, Dey
noted, even a deputy with the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
has been a victim.
Local victims appear to be
customers of Wauchula State
Bank and MidFlorida Credit
Union, he said. These financial
institutions "have been hit for
around $20,000 each, so far,"
Dey said.
The situation is severe
enough for Dey to have called
in the Florida Department of



the big picture for both his fam-
ily and the community," said
Atchley.
"All along the timing wasn't
right. I love being on the coun-
ty commission. It is an honor to
serve the residents. My wife
and I have prayed about it, and
met with our pastor for prayer. I
feel I have the skill sets and
would be a viable candidate for
city manager.
Asked why Sarah Pelham of
the county Economic Develop-
ment office notarized his signa-
ture on the city job application,
Atchley said it was simply
because that office was within
walking distance of his office at
Giovanni's.
He commented that Eco-
nomic Development Director
Bill Lambert is one of the con-
fidants he has talked to about
the city manager position. He
asked Lambert for his advice on
the application and "he encour-
aged me to~do what's best frd
my family."
Atchley concluded, "I'm
looking to provide for my fami-
ly and felt compelled to put
myself out for consideration as
the city manager. There's still a
whole formal process and I
don't know how it will end."

Knight's Position
Knight said Tuesday that he
was aware Atchley had put in
an application for city manager.
Knowing he lives in the same
county commission district as
Atchley, he has been asked "by
a couple of people" to consider
a gubernatorial appointment
should there be a vacancy on
the county commission. He


Law Enforcement. Special
agents have joined the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office and the
Highlands County Sheriff's
Office in investigating the
fraud.
Most of the unauthorized
charges peoplelwill find on
their bills are founder $1,000
and are from Orlando. Some-
times the amounts exceed
$1,000, and sometimes the
charge was made in Miami,
Dey described.
People need to examine their
statements monthly and report
fraudulent charges to their
financial institution immediate-
ly in order to avoid a loss.
People who pay their bills but
never look at the itemization are
the ones who will be losers,
Dey cautioned.




said Bill Lambert was not one
of the people talking to him
about the position.
"I'm a person who depends
on prayer greatly and I depend
on that in these matters. If Terry
should happen to become city
manager and the governor
wants to appoint me to that seat,'
I would definitely feel led to it,"
said Knight.
He noted, however, that he
had been ready to shortlist the
city manager applicant list at
the June 13 meeting but other
commissioners wanted to wait.
"I have talked to Terry Leary
and have been impressed with
her. I also feel Stephen Weeks.
Fred Baughman and Joseph
Miranti were strong candidates.
Knight, who was a Wauchula
councilman over. 20 years ago,
had been asked to run again
through the years, but "I never
thought of it until the trouble
came up. I felt I could make a
difference. I prayed about it and
God led me to it. I've become
much closer to God in the last
few years.
"I love Hardee County and
Wauchula and I'll do what I can
to help wherever I cad." Knight
says he knows of no collabora-
tion about his political situa-
tion. "If there's anything going
on, it's not with my knowl-
edge."
e acknowledged that his
son-ar-law; Carlos Beruff, is a
governor's appointee, to the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District Board and "I
guess he could talk to the gov-
ernor about appointing me to
the county commission. I really
don't know."


A
t










June 30, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 3A


recorded with the Hardee Clerk
of Courts Office on July 14,
2004, which states the Bube-
nicks granted "the public the
right to use a non-exclusive,
continuing and permanent ease-
ment for the ingress and egress
over and upon the following
described real property."
It goes on to give a legal
description of the land, amount-
ing to 100 feet west from U.S.
17 to the eastern boundary of
the parcel purchased by the
School Board.
Further, a July 24, 2003, arti-
tie in The Herald-Advocate
noted the School Board had
selected a site for its new K-8
campus and had approved the
purchase of the land.
The land, the article stated,
was owned by the Bubenicks. It
amounted to 60 acres and a sell-
ing price of $13,500 per acre,
for a total of $810,000.
"The land is situated north of
Rainey Boulevard and south of
SR 62, on the west side of U.S.
17 directly across from Crystal
Lake RV Village at Maxwell
Road," the story went on to
describe.
"The site does not front U.S.
17, but has a 100-foot easement
extending out to that highway,
Deputy Schools Superintendent
Greg Dick explained. Entrace
and access instead will be via
Rainey Boulevard to Rigdon
Road.
'That's where the main
entrance will be,' Dick is
quoted as saying.
The story goes on to say the
U.S. 17 access road would be "a
double-lane access" for visitors
and for limited local use, citing
safety and -traffic considera-
tions.
On the site selection commit-
tee were Dick, Kitchens, then-
superintendent Dennis Jones,
then-facilities director Rob
Williams, then-board members
Donnie Autry and Joe Jones,
then-property appraiser Carolyn
Coker, the county's Park Winter
and Tina Hunstman, and cities
representatives David Elbertson








A Daily Thought

I look up to the mountains;
does my strength come from
mountains? No, my strength
comes from God, Who
made heaven and earth, and
mountains.
Psalm 121:1-2 (ME)
FRIDAY
He won't let you stumble,
your Guardian God won't fall
asleep. Not on your life!

at your side to protect you -
shielding you from sun-
stroke, sheltering you from
moonstroke.
Psalm 121:5-6 (ME)

SUNDAY
God guards you from every
evil, He guards your very life.
He guards when you leave
and when you return, He
guards you always.

MONDAY
Help, God the bottom has
fallen out of my life! Master,
hear my cry for help! Listen
hard! Open Your ears! Listen
to my cries for mercy.
Psalm 130:1-2 (ME)

TUESDAY
If You, God, kept records on
wrongdoings, who would
stand a chance? As it turns
out, forgiveness is Your
habit, and that's why You're
worshiped.
Psalm 130:3 (ME)

WEDNESDAY
I pray to God my life's a
prayer and wait for what
He'll say and do ... With
God's arrival comes love,
with God's arrival comes
generous redemption.
Psalm 130:5 (ME)


ana Jerry Lonerly.
School Board members
approved the purchase as rec-
ommended, accepting the ease-
ment.
A March 2006 article in The
Herald-Advocate pictures and
describes a sign placed on the
easement for the schools to post
messages to motorists along
U.S. 17. A June 22 story
describes a ribbon-cutting for
the new schools. And, in August
of 2006, the first classes began.
"I don't know why the delay
in raising the issues," attorney
Evers said in a telephone inter-
view this Wednesday morning.
He noted, however, that the
Bubenicks are "absentee own-
ers."
Evers also said he was aware
of the situation one year ago,
and called current Schools
Superintendent David Dura-
stanti "and told him it's com-
ing." Evers said Durastanti has
known of the possibility for a
year, and that some board mem-
bers were told as well.
"So," he said, "it's not com-
pletely without notice."
Evers did say his clients are
sensitive to the educational use
of the land and to the board's
budget constraints. "The Bube-
nicks intend to be reasonable
and expect the board to be will-
ing to be so, too, in resolving
this," he said.
His June 16 letter to Board
Chairman Crawford went on to
state:
"The primary purpose of this
letter is to formally request
(demand) removal of the fenc-
ing, signage (brick structure)
and security gate from the ease-
ment. The fencing and security
gate can be placed further to the
west and can be located on
School Board property thereby
maintaining the security that is
needed.
"The Bubenicks understand
and are sensitive to the board's
decision-making process and
impacts to current fiscal-year
budget," Evers continued.
"Please make arrangements
for initiation of the removal
process within 90 days of the
date of this letter. In the mean-
time, please accept this corre-
spondence as permission to use
the easement in its present con-

Dear Editor:
I would like to start with
thank you to Officer Eric
Thompson of the Wauchula
Police Department for saving
my mom.
What turned out to be safe
trip to the emergency room
could have been an extreme sit-
uation for our mom.
He acted not just as a regular
policeman on duty, but as a
compassionate and wonderful
human being. Kind of reminds
us that there are still good
Samaritans left on this earth.
With things the way they are,
this man is a beacon of hope to
all those who pray daily for
encouragement, peace and har-
mony.

figuration while the removal
process is initiated and com-
pleted," he concluded, also ask-
ing to have the matter placed on
the board's next meeting agen-
da.
Durastanti acknowledged on
Tuesday afternoon that the
easement was for ingress and
egress only. The gate and fence,
he said, "are blocking off some
of their property and they can't
get to it."
He said he passed on Evers'
letter to School Board attorney
Gavin O'Brien, who noted the
Bubenicks' attorney was used
in the assignment and recording
of the easement.
For his clients, Evers said
"the paving is not an issue."
The problem, he said, is the
sign, fencing and gate. "It looks
like the School Board owns it,
and nobody wants it," hamper-
ing not only his clients' access
to their own land, but also their
potential to sell their property to
others, should they choose to do
so.
Evers said he anticipates "a
spirit of cooperation" on all
parts.

6A The Herald-Advocate, June 30, 2011


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
All stores, except groceries,
will be closed all day Saturday
in observance of July 4th as
requested by the citizens of
Limestone who are sponsoring
the Hardee County Rodeo.
They realize that Limestone
residents, although nearer to
Arcadia than .Wauchula, do
.most of their trading in this city
to keep it in their home county.
The turkey shoot will be held in
the morning and the rodeo will
begin sharply at 1 p.m.

The resettlement administra-
tion has been a boon for area
farmers. Mr. J.E. Menier, of
the Wauchula office which cov-
ers Hardee, Highlands and
DeSoto counties, said farmers
in the three-county region have
received $100,000 through
loans for stock, seed, fertilizer,
subsistence and farm supplies.

The entertainment scoop of
the year: Darryl F. Zanuck
makes movie stars of the
world's front-page darlings, as
he presents the Dionne quintu-
plets in their first full-length
feature, "The Country Doctor,"
seen Monday and Tuesday at
the Royal Theatre.

The Furniture Exchange on
North Fifth Avenue offers
repairs to slip covers and
awnings. The Standard Parts
Co. on West Main Street, which
sells Philco radios and Elec-
trolux kerosene refrigerators,
also can supply glass for any
make car on 24 hours' notice.

50 YEARS AGO
The Rev. and Mrs. William
Mulcay are finding that remem-
brances of their stay in the
Belgium Congo are fitting well

A WINNING SEASON
Baseball season is under way, and we're still at that happy time
when anything can happen.
And I know of one team that's already had a winning season.
,One player, especially.
If that sounds far-fetched, stay with me for a minute or two. I'll
tell you a story about a college team and a player and a coach
that's one in a million. Literally.
The team is Wake Forest, and the player is Kevin Jordan, a
home-run hitting outfielder. The coach is Tom Walter, who took the
notion that a good coach will do anything for his players and raised
it up a notch. Actually, several notches.
The story began last semester when Jordan, a freshman, was
diagnosed with a rare illness that left him battling a serious kidney
disorder. Up until then he'd been a baseball standout, 43rd in the
country, according to one ranking service; an all-star in his home
area of Columbus, Ga.; and an early draft pick by the New York
Yankees.
Now he was hooked up to a dialysis machine, fretting because
his parents and other family members were declared "no match"
and couldn't provide the kidney transplant he needed.
That's when Coach Tom Walter stood up. He turned out to be
a perfect match, and in February of this year decided to give Jordan
one of his two kidneys.
"I didn't want Kevin to wait one more day if I could help out,"
the 42-year-old coach explained. "All along, it's been about trying
to do the right thing. This whole process has never been about get-
ting Kevin back on the field. This has always been about Kevin
having a chance at a normal life."
And a normal life, apparently, is just what's in store for Jordan
once the surgery had taken place. Kidney patients with transplants
can expect to live 10 years beyond those who undergo dialysis, and
long healthy lives are also the norm for their donors.
Kevin Jordan seemed overwhelmed by the spontaneity of the
coach's gift of life. "I didn't ask," he told Mike Tierney of The New
York Times. "He volunteered."
That was no surprise to Ann Walter, the coach's mother, who
remembered him always "sticking up" for kids who didn't have the
advantages that he did. And Coach Walter himself enjoyed his own
college days (at Georgetown) so much that he couldn't bear the
thought of Jordan, one of "his" players, connected to a dialysis
machine for eight hours a day. "It just breaks your heart," he said.
In mid-March, after spending six weeks recuperating at home,
Jordan watched his teammates play for the first time this year, con-
tenting himself with a spectator's role for the game played at home
in Winston-Salem, N.C. But doctors have given him the OK to start
swinging a bat, and he was on schedule to begin hitting once again.
Walter, who was back on the field just four days after the sur-
gery, looked for a winning season for his Deacons and discounted
any talk of heroics on his part.
"We answer to a higher calling on this one,'Nhe said.

2010 INFORMED ANNUAL DE CALIDAD DE AGUA POTABLE
PLANT DE TRATAMIENTO DE AGUA DE WAUCHULA HILLS

Nos complace presentar este informed annual de calidad de agua del afio. Este informed esta diseiada para informarle sobre la calidad del agua y ser-
vicios que le ofrecemos cada dia. Nuestra fuente de agua es la ciudad de Wauchula, que recibe su agua de pozos en el acuifero de la Florida. El agua
se filtra por 6smosis inversa y clorado para fines de desinfecci6n.
Si tiene alguna pregunta acerca de este informed ni respect de la utilidad del agua, comuniquese con la Oficina de utilidades de condado de Hardee
' S en 863-773-3465. Wauchula colinas supervise rutinariamente de contaminants en el agua potable de acuerdo a las leyes federates y estatales,
normas y reglamentos. Excepto donde se indique lo contrario, este informed se basa en los resultados de nuestra supervision para el period del 1 de
enero y el 31 de diciembre 2010.
En la siguiente tabla, se encuentra familiarizados terminos y abreviaturas. Para ayudarle a mejor comprender estos t6rminos hemos incluido las sigu-
ientes definiciones:
MAximo nivel de contaminants o LCM: el mAs alto nivel de un contaminante que se permit en el agua potable. MCLs se establecen para la MCLGs
como factible utilizando la mejor tecnologia de tratamiento disponible.
Maximo objetivo de nivel de contaminants o MCLG: el nivel de un contaminante en el agua potable por debajo del cual no hay ning6n riesgo para la
salud conocido o esperado. MCLGs permiten un margen de seguridad.
Nivel de acci6n (AL): La concentraci6n de un contaminante que, si se supera, provoca el tratamiento u otros requisites que debe'seguir un sistema
de agua.
"ND" medios no detectan y indica que la sustancia no fue encontrada por anAlisis de laboratorio.
Partes por mill6n (ppm) o miligramos por litro (mg/I): una part en peso del analito a 1 mill6n de parties en peso de la muestra de agua.
Partes por mil millones (MPP) o microgramos por litro (pg/I): una parte en peso del analito a mil millones de parties en peso de la muestra de agua.
Picocurie por litro (pCi/L): media de la radioactividad en el agua.
MAximo nivel de desinfectante residual o MRDL: el mayor nivel de desinfectante en el agua potable. Hay pruebas convincentes de que la adici6n de
un desinfectante es necesaria para control de contaminants microbianos.
Objetivo de nivel desinfectante residual mdximo o MRDLG: el nivel de un desinfectante de agua potable por debajo del cual no hay ning6n riesgo
conocido o previsto para la salud En 2009, se llev6 a cabo una evaluaci6n de agua de la fuente de nuestro sistema de agua. La evaluaci6n encuen-
tra 16 fuentes potenciales de contaminaci6n cerca de los pozos. Estos incluyeron tanques de almacenamiento de petr6leo y una plant de tratamien-
to de aguas residuales. Es el nivel de riesgo de bajo a moderado. Evaluaciones de agua de origen se publican en http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp/.

Si estA present, los niveles elevados de plomo pueden causar problems graves de salud, especialmente para las mujeres embarazadas y ninos
pequenos. Plomo en el agua potable es principalmente de materials y components asociados con las lines de servicio y fontaneria dom6stica. La
ciudad de Wauchula es responsible de proporcionar agua potable de alta calidad, pero no puede controlar la variedad de materials utilizados en los
components de fontaneria. Cuando el agua ha estado sentado durante varias horas, puede minimizar el potential de exposici6n al plomo vaciando
su grifo durante 30 segundos a 2 minutes antes de utilizar el agua para beber o cocinar. Si le preocupa acerca de plomo en el agua, debe tener el
agua probado. Informaci6n sobre el plomo en el agua potable, m6todos de prueba y pasos que puede seguir para minimizar la exposici6n esta
disponible desde la linea de agua potable segura o en http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Las fuentes de agua potable (agua del grifo y agua embotel-
lada) incluyen rios, lagos, arroyos, lagunas, embalses, manantiales y pozos. Como agua viaja a trav6s de la superficie de la tierra o a traves de la tier-
ra, disuelve minerales naturales y, en algunos casos, el material radiactivo y puede recoger sustancias resultantes de la presencia de animales'o de
humans actividad.
Contaminantes que puedan estar presents en el agua de la fuente incluyen:
(A) microbianas contaminants, tales como virus y bacteria, que pueden provenir de plants de tratamiento de aguas residuales, sistemas s6pticos,
las operaciones agricolas de ganado y vida silvestre.
(B) contaminants inorganicos, tales como sales y metales, que pueden ser naturales o como resultado de la escorrentia de aguas pluviales urbanas,
vertidos de aguas residuales industriales o dom6sticas, producci6n de petr6leo y gas. la mineria o la agriculture.
(C) plaguicidas y herbicidas, que puede deberse a una variedad de fuentes, como la agriculture, la escorrentia de aguas pluviales urbanas y usos res
idenciales.
(D) contaminants quimicos organicos, incluyendo quimicos organicos sinteticos y volatiles, que son subproductos de process industriales y pro
ducci6n de petr6leo y tambi6n pueden provenir de estaciones de gasoline, la escorrentia de aguas pluviales urbanas y sistemas septicos.
(E) contaminants radiactivos, que puede ser que se produce naturalmente o ser el resultado de la producci6n de petr6leo y gas y las actividades
mineras.
A fin de que agua del grifo es potable, la EPA establece normas que limitan la cantidad de ciertos contaminants en el agua proporcionada por los
sistemas de agua p6blica. Los reglamentos de alimentos y drogas (FDA) establecen limits de contaminants en el agua embotellada, debe propor-I
cionar la misma protecci6n para la salud p6blica.
Agua'potable, incluyendo agua embotellada, puede esperarse razonablemente que contenga al menos pequeias cantidades de algunos contami-
nantes. La presencia de contaminants no indica necesariamente que el agua supone un riesgo para la salud. Puede obtener mas information acer-
ca de contaminants y los efectos potenciales de salud Ilamando a la linea de asistencia de agua potable de la Agencia de protecci6n ambiental segu-
ra al 1-800-426-4791.
Algunas personas pueden ser mas vulnerable a contaminants en el agua potable que la poblaci6n general. Las personas inmunodeficientes, como
las personas con cancer que reciben quimioterapia, las personas que han sido sometidos a trasplantes de 6rganos, personas con VIH/SIDA o otros
trastornos del sistema inmunol6gico, algunos ancianos y recien nacidos pueden ser particularmente en riesgo de infecciones. Estas personas deben
buscar asesoramiento sobre el agua potable de sus proveedores de atenci6n medical. EPA/CDC guidelines sobre medios adecuados para disminuir
el riesgo de infecci6n por Cryptosporidium y otros contaminants microbiol6gicos estan disponibles desde la segura linea agua potable direct (800-
426-4791).

New Law Stiffens Penalties



For Parents Who Let Kids Drink


ACCREDITATION TEAM INVITES PUBLIC
COMMENTS ABOUT THE WAUCHULA
POLICE DEPARTMENT

(Wauchula): A team of assessors from the Commission for Florida Law Enforcement
Accreditation (CFA) will arrive August 2nd, 2011 to examine all aspects of the Wauchula
Police Department's policies and procedures, management, operations, and support
services, Chief William C.- Beattie announced today. The Wauchula Police Department
has to comply with approximately 260 standards in order to receive accredited status.

As part of the on-site assessment, agency members and the general public are invited to
offer comments to the assessment team. Comments must be in writingand must address
the agency's ability to comply with CFA standards. A copy of the standards is available
through Wauchula Police Departments Public Information Officer at 863-773-3265.

For more information regarding CFA or for persons wishing to offer written comments
about the Wauchula Police Departments ability to meet the standards of accreditation,
please write: CFA, 3504 Lake Lynda Drive, Suite 380, Orlando, Florida, 32817, or email to
info@flaccreditation.org.

The Accreditation Manager for the Wauchula Police Department is Lt. David Stimson. He
stated that the assessmer am is composed of law enforcement practitioners from sim-
ilar agencies. The assessors will review written materials; interview individuals; and visit
offices and other places where compliance can be witnessed. The CFA Assessment
Team Leader is Mark K. Foxworth of the Fernandina Beach Police Department. Other
team members are Juli Dodson of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Division of
Law Enforcement, and Master Officer Tammy Farnham of the Stuart Police Department.

Once the Commission's assessors complete their review of the agency, they report back
to the full Commission, which will then decide if the agency is to receive accredited sta-
tus. The Wauchula Police Departments accreditation is for 3 years. Verification by the
team that the Wauchula Police Department meets the Commission's standards is part of
a voluntary process to gain or maintain accreditation--a highly prized recognition of law
enforcement professional excellence, Chief Beattie said.

Beattie. "Parents, there is noth-
ing safe about letting your chil-
dren drink, period."
The legislation increases the
penalties of hosting open house
parties.
Currently, violators are
charged with a second-degree
misdemeanor, serve 60 days in
a local jail and are charged with
$500 in fees. With tomorrow's
new law, violators will be
charged with a first-degree mis-
demeanor. spend up to a year in
the county jail and have up to
$1,000 in penalties awaiting
them.
This bill has spent five years
in the making. Originating in
Titusville after the death of two
teenagers who were at an open
house party in 2006. the bill
was finally filed by Rep. Tom
Goodson (R) on Dec. 29. 2010.
It made its way through the
judiciary committee, the special
order calendar, the Senate and
the House, where it passed
unopposed on April 29 before
being signed into law by Gov.
Scott this month.,
The legislation was support-


ed by the-Florida Coalition for
Alcohol Policy, the Florida
Alcohol & Drug Abuse
Association, the Stop Open
House Parties Organization, the
city of Titusville, Mothers
Against Drunk Driving of
Florida, the Tampa Alcohol
Coalition, the LiveFree Sub-
stance Abuse Prevention Coa-
lition of Pinellas County, the
Gainesville Police Department,
the Parents of Murdered
Children, the Florida Coalition
Alliance, the Orlando Sentinel,
Florida Today, as well as
Hardee County's community
leaders.
We are definitely in favor of
the law. Parents do not need to
contribute to underage drinking
or drug use, and need to be
aware of the penalties if they
participate in such." said Sheriff
Arnold Lanier.
Starting tomorrow (Friday),
any parent or adult who takes
part in open house parties will
begin to face tougher penalties,
with the hope to put a stop to
underage drinking and the
tragedies that can come from it.


2010 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
Wauchula Hills Water Treatment Plant
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and serv-
ices we deliver to you every day. Our water source is the City of Wauchula, which receives its water from wells in the Floridian Aquifer. The water is then
filtered by reverse osmosis and chlorinated for disinfection purposes.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the Hardee County Utilities office at 863-773-3465.
Wauchula Hilli routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where
indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2010.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following defi-
nitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as fea-
sible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition
of a.disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health
In 2009, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found 16 potential sources of contamination near the
wells. These included petroleum storage tanks and a wastewater treatment plant. The level of risk is from low to moderate. Source water assessments
are posted at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp/.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water
is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Wauchula is responsible for providing high
quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours,
you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you
are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps
you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water
travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can
pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock
operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or
domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and
petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioa t:ve contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order'to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provid-
ed by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must pro-
vide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of con-
taminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immune-compromised persons such as
persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system dis-
orders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health
care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants
are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Letter To The Editor

Peace River Explorations

Sounds Like Great Idea


Dear Editor:
Thank you for covering dev-
elopments of the Peace River
Explorations in The Herald-Ad-
vocate.
I am a newcomer to Wau-
chula and think this sort of eco-
tourism endeavor is just what is
needed here. Wauchula has
some charm as a small town,
and/I would like to permanently
establish roots here.
I would feel more confident
doing so if it looked like there
was more effort being made to
attract people to the area and
provide opportunities for the
coming generations of Hardee


countians.
This sort of economic devel-
opment would helppreserve the
natural resources and heritage
of the community. This project
would highlight the unique,
diverse features of Wauchula
and Hardee County.
It seems really smart to pro-
mote hidden assets of the area
through a welcome center/con-
cierge service. ..
I hope that the general popu-
lace and "powers that be" can
get behind this plan and make it
happen.

For The Herald-Advocate
Though the upcoming holi-
day weekend may include cele-
bratory gatherings, ones the
state will no longer tolerate are
those private parties which con-
done underage drinking.
Gov. Rick Scott signed
HB105, the "Open House Party
Bill," on June 17, increasing
penalties for a homeowner who
hosts a party allowing anyone
under 21 to consume alcohol or
drugs.
The bill was passed, is the
law, and will become effective
tomorrow (Friday).
In Florida, it is always illegal
for parents or other adults to
provide alcohol to anyone
under the age of 21. Even in
Hardee County this has become
a problem, with pasture parties.
Some parents have the impres-
sion if they allow their teens to
drink in their home or on their
property under their supervi-
sion, then it is OK.
"I am definitely for the
House bill," stated Wauchula
Police Chief of Police Bill

Miller Second In Bartow Tourney


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee senior Daniel Miller
is at the top of his golf game.
Miller was the only Hardee
County youth in the 13th annu-
al Youth Villa Junior Tourna-
ment held in Bartow last week-
end.
'Miller showed -why he is
expected to be a leader for the
Wildcats this fall. The 17-year-
old carded the best round of his
16-18 age division on Saturday
with a 74 on the par 72 course.
He was leading when play was
stopped because of lightning.
Tyler Bakich of Newsome
High, playing in the 15-16 divi-
sion, finished his first round on
Sunday with 73 and followed it
with a 72 final round to win the
tournament with an overall 145.
Miller improved over his
best-ever first round of 74 to
also card a 72 and place.second
overall with 146, two strokes up
on his nearest opponent. Miller
also won the boys 17-18 divi-
sion.
He has been playing Sertoma
Youth Golf this season, along
with several Hardee teammates,
classmates Dalton Hewett, Matt


Godwin and Dustin Scheel, jun-
iors William Beattie and Will
Bennett, and sophs Bradley
Brewer, Tyler Hewett, Bryson
White and Eric Klein.
In the opening Sertoma sum-
mer tour event, June 11 at Sun
"N Lake Hardee grad Taylor
Barlow beat his Avon Park
nemesis Greg Gentry 76 to 77.
Miller tied for third with 80 and
was followed in the 17-18 divi-
sion by Godwin, Scheel and
Dalton Hewett.
Bennett placed third in the
boys 15-16 group, ahead of
Beattie, Tyler Hewett, White,
Brewer and Klein.
The second tour event was.
hosted by the Wauchula Police
Department at Torrey Oaks.
Barlow again won the 17-18
division, and Miller was second
with an 83. Other results from
that match were unavailable.
On June 25, the tour went to
the Lake Wales Country Club,
where Barlow slipped behind
Gentry, who had his best outing
to date for the season with a siz-
zling 68. Miller was third over-
all in the upper age division,
followed by Dalton Hewett,
Godwin and Scheel.

By JOAN SEAMAN

Just as soon as the Men's
Church League finished its sea-
son, the Men's Community
League started its games.
There are eight teams in the
Community League. At the end
of the first week of play, Peace
River Electric Cooperative
(PRECo) Legion of Doom,
Gilliard Fill Dirt's Dirty Dozen,
and Mosaic No. l's Regulators
were the only teams which had-
n't lost a game. Also in the mix
are Mosaic No. 2, TNT/-
Nemesis, III Ranches, Los
Diablos and Team Santarlas.
Some of the early games have
been barn burners and others a
bit more divergent. In last
Tuesday's early game on Field
3, Gilliard's won 17-8 over-
Team Santarlas.
Brent Gilliard, Zack Cline,
Lester Hornbake and Mario
Tamayo all homered for
Gilliard's. Gilliard was the only
four-tally batter. Hornbake
added three runs, and Kellon

A Teddy Svendsen horper and
Troy Brant triple were the long
ball hits for Team Santarlas.

times. He and Svendsen each
smacked three hits, while Ches

two apiece.

GAMES OF OLD


PHOTOS BY MACHELLE DOLLAR
It's time once again for the 4-H "Back to Basics" Summer Day Camp held at the Agri-
Civic Center in Wauchula. Four days a week, children ages 8-18 gather together to
learn "new" tricks and skills from various community members. In the top photo,
Sharon Cash is demonstrating games from the early 1800s. Wearing her apron and
bonnet, she portrays a pioneer woman as the children gather round to learn new ways
to entertain themselves. The bottom photo shows one of the ways boys used to chal-
lenge each other, by pulling sticks. The goal of the game is to pull the other person up
on their feet. During the six-week camp, Lockie Gary, Rich Shepard, Denton and
Sharon Cash, Jackson Mosley, Megan Mitchell, Dr. Mark Sevigny, Mike Mclntyre, Steve
Cooper, Sandy Scott, Kari Terrell, Mosaic, Carolyn Wyatt, Skipper Calder and Cantu's
Bees will spend mornings with the children. Different activities will be observed and
learned, from making candles, baking and learning about eye care to watching a ven-
triloquist and going on a fossil hunt. The program has about 30 kids in attendance.

Charlotte Elliott was mad at
herself, her family and her God. At
33, she had become an invalid.
She cried, "If God loved me, He
wouldn't have treated me this way!"
One night a minister showed her
that God did love her. She asked, "If
I wanted to become a Christian,
how would I go about it?"
"Give yourself to God," he said,
"just as you are now.
Charlotte came to God, to be
made over by Him, and she wrote
this hymn:
"Just as I am, without out one
plea, but that Thy blood was shed
for me,
And that Thou bidd'st me come
to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come."


omne days are really productive, exhausting
but full of accomplishment. When the day
is done. make sure you take some time to refresh
and renew. While resting, why not reflect on
your spiritual life? Though your daily goals arc
important, the knowledge of God's will for your
life is essential. Renew yourself in worship at

priorities in order.

The New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant ofGreek fame,
With conquering limbs astride
from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed,
sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome;
her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor
that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!"
cries she With silent lips.
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses
yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse ofyour teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless,
tempest-tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

GOT GOLD OR SILVER? CASH IN DURING RECORD HIGH PRICES...


COMPANY IN SEBRING PAYING CASH ON THE SPOT!


They are paying out right on the spot for my stuff.

Unbelievable!
By David Morgan
STAFF WRITER

A spokesperson for the event said he expects to spend in excess of $200,000.00 this
week for vintage items and precious metals from local residents.
At previous events, these transactions stood out:
One person sold an old Gibson guitar that was purchased in the 1 960's for less than
$250.00. A collector at the event paid him $2,175.00 for it.
Another person had a pocket watch collection that sold for $4,600.00, with one of
the watches making up $375.00 of the $4,600.00 total.
A husband and wife brought in a box of old jewelry, wrist watches, coins and 2
German daggers from WWII and left $785.00 richer.
This is cool that something like this would come here to our town. Where else would
this stuff ever be sold? The Refinery has teamed up with the collectors for a 24 month
tour of the United States, both big and small towns, to dig up hidden gems.

SILVER AND GOLD COIN PRICES

UP DURING POOR ECONOMY.

Collectors and Enthusiasts in Sebring with
$200,000 to Purchase Yours!
By Ken Mclntosh
STAFF WRITER


Got Coin? It might be just the time to
cash in. This week, starting Tuesday
and continuing through Saturday, the
International Collectors Association in
conjunction with the Ohio Valley Gold
& Silver Refinery will be purchasing all
types of silver and gold coins direct from
the public. All types are welcome and the
event is free.
Collectors will be on hand to identify
and sort your coins. Then the quality or
grade will be determined. The better the
grade the more they are worth, according
to collectors I talked to. With the silver
and gold markets high, prices of older
coins are too. Any coins minted before
1965 in the U.S. are 909% silver, except
nickels and pennies.
The coin's worth is determined by the
rarity and the grade. Old silver dollars
are worth a great premium right now,
even well worn heavily circulated ones
are bringing good premiums. Franklin
and Kennedy half dollars, Washington
quarters, Mercury and Roosevelt dimes
are all worth many times the face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty.
Standing Liberties, and Barber coins are
worth even more.
Gold coins are really worth a lot
right now, according to Brian Eades of
the International Collectors Association.
"This country didn't start minting coins
until 1792" says Eades. He explained,
"Before that, people would trade goods
using gold dust and nuggets. Some


shop keepers would take more gold
than needed to pay for items purchased.
There was no uniform system of making
change."
The government opened the first
mints and began distributing the coins
in 1792. By the beginning of the 19th
century, coins and paper currency were
wide spread and our monetary system
was here to stay. In 1933 Roosevelt
required all banking institutions to turn
in all gold coins. Once all banks turned
in this gold, the president raised the
gold standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way of
stimulating the economy during the great
depression. However, gold coins were
never redistributed after the recall. But not
all gold coins were turned in. "Many folks
during that time didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their gold"
said Eades.
These gold coins are sought after by
collectors today and bring many times
the face value. Any gold coins with the
mint marks of CC, D or O will bring nice
premiums. Collectors at the event will be
glad to show you where to look. Other
types of coins will also be purchased
including foreign coins, Indian cents, two
cent pieces, half dimes, three cent pieces
and buffalo nickels to name a few.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins, as significant
damage can be done and the coin's value
lessened. 6:30c


Above: "I'm glad I came in! I really needed the money.", said Claudia McDonald,
who received $825 for a gold coin minted in 1986.

The first days of the 5 day reclamation
drive in Sebring were. a hit with those
looking to sell their gold and silver coins.
An estimated 55 people left the event
with over $200 from old class rings,
wedding bands, herringbones and. gold
teeth. Coins dated 1964 and earlier were
bringing big premiums as well. Silver
dollars, halves and quarters arrived in
large quantities. Lots of gold coins were
also brought in.

types of guitars, large currency bills dated
before 1923, military items and pocket
watches. One watch was purchased by a
collector in Montana for $835.00. There
were piles of sterling silver items like old
silverware sets and tea pots. Company
officials reported spending over $90,000
the first day of the event, alone. Brian
Eades, with the Ohio Valley, said, "We
have had an overwhelming turnout this
first day, and we expect to get more busy
every day this week." The event continues
today and runs through Saturday. It is free
and the public is encouraged to attend.
