By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Economic Development
Authority had a four-hour meet-
ing and eight applicants vying
for the $3,680,737 in available
grant money for businesses
looking to create jobs and
growth .opportunities for Har-
dee County.
The board granted $800,000
to the Industrial Development
Authority for a speculation
building at the Commerce Park,
put three applications on hold
until September, and denied
funding to four applicants.
All eight applicants, with a
total of $6.43 million in
requests, made presentations
before the board voted on the
projects.
Still being considered for
funding are the Center for Great
Apes, Country Gardens and
Peace River Explorations.
Being turned down were
Redding Farms LLC, which
submitted two applications
totaling $290,000; SonHaven.

Yet For


ZS Seat

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
No one has yet to qualify to
run for the vacant seat on the
Zolfo Springs Town Commis-
sion.
But at least two potential can-
didates are interested in the job.
Town Clerk June Albritton
said early Wednesday morning
that two people have picked up
qualifying packets at Town
Hall, Marie Schofield Guerrero
and DiDi White.
The qualifying period for
candidates for Seat 2 on the
Town Commission ends tpmor-
row (Friday) at 4 p.m. The seat
became open following the
Aug. 2 death of commissioner
and mayor George Neel.
Whoever is elected to fill that
vacancy will finish out Neel's
unexpired term, serving until
the next General Election in
2012.
/,The town election to name
tlt replacement will be held on
M nday, Sept. 12.
Qualifying packets can be
picked up at Town Hall, 3210

Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County schools were
back in session on Monday,
with 109 more students than on
last year's first day of classes.
Schools Superintendent Dav-
id Durastanti said that while
enrollment numbers average
out about the same at the ele-
mentary level, the district is
"showing some growth at the
secondary schools."
And, he pointed out, "We

typically start down 20 percent
from where we'll peak." That
higher enrollment number
comes in January or early
February, Durastanti said.
"Just because they weren't
here on the first day doesn't
mean they're not coming," he
added.
Leading with a longer roll is
Hardee Senior High School,
which had 1,153 students on the
first day compared to 1,107 last
year. That is an increase of 46


teens.
Next was Hardee Junior High
School, with 1,017 youngsters
compared to 980 last year, put-
ting 37 more names in roll
books.
The elementary school with
the highest boost was the one in
Zolfo Springs. It had 528 pupils
on the first day, 22 more than
last year's 506. Then came
Wauchula Elementary School,
with 18 more students, from
663 up to 681, a number which


keeps its position as the coun-
ty's largest elementary school.
Hilltop Elementary School,
the one with the lowest enroll-
ment in the county, gained eight
students, from last year's 302 to
this year's 310.
The final two schools lost
some pupil numbers, Bowling
Green Elementary and North
Wauchula Elementary, Bowling
Green saw the biggest drop,
down by 16 as it counted 429

Sara Pelham, representing
the IDA, said having a spec
building is very important when
trying to get a business to relo-
cate to Hardee County. She said
companies want to move fast,
and not have to wait to design
and build a facility, which could
take 12 to 15 months.

Solar


Farm To


Shine


Here?

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County has been
named as a finalist along with
three other counties in Florida
that could land a $1.5 billion
solar project.
The announcement came last
week from the Melbourne-
based company National Solar
Power, which said the project
would occupy 4,000 acres and
bring as many as 120 high-pay-
ing jobs to the chosen county,
along with adding 400 con-
struction jobs during building.
The other three counties
vying for the project are Gads-
den, Osceola and Suwannee.
The company established cri-
teria for selecting the site that
included available undeveloped
land, tax incentives, a qualified
work force, and local govern-
ment and community support.
The first phase of the project
is expected to be up and run-
ning within six months of
breaking ground. ',
The 400-megawatt farm will
be capable of powering 32,000
homes.
There is currently only one
solar farm in the Sunshine State
and it is in Arcadia.
National Solar Power ex-
pects to announce which county
will receive the projectfwithin
two weeks.

72 Kelly's Column
By Jim


Florida Gov. Rick Scott has started doing a series of "work
days" at various jobs as part of his "Let's GetTo Work" agenda. On
Aug. 3 he worked at a donut shop in Tampa.
He borrowed this idea from Bob Graham, who was Florida
governor 8 years and'U.S. Senator for 18 years. Scott and Graham
are to be congratulated.
Bob often used a "Graham Cracker" as a campaign icon.
Another great campaign logo was a trout used by Florida State
Rep. Baxter Troutman. How many people would want to be com-
pared to a fish? Voters took the bait and elected him.

What's with the FSU Seminoles? Rated No. 5 or 6 in the foot-
ball preseason. Getting 16 commitments for the Class of 2012,
four from Alabama, including Jameis Winston, ESPN's No. 1-
rated quarterback at 6-4 and 200 pounds and No. 2 defensive end
Chris Casher.
The UF Gators are rated at No. 22 to 25 in preseason polls.
One of FSU's most enthusiastic supporters is Larry Barwick at the
Wauchula Bowl of Fun Lanes.
The highest rated SEC football teams are Alabama ELSU and

Hardee is one of four finalists for a large solar energy farm that
could generate power for up to 32,000 homes, or 400 megawatts.
National Solar Power, based in Melbourne, estimated the project
costs at $1.5 billion and could use up to 4,000 acres.
A recent Highlands Today riews article written by Pallavi
Agarwal said other counties being considered are Gasden, Osceola
and Suwannee. The company would want incentives and commu-
nity support.

children compared to 445 last
year. North Wauchula went
from 512 to 506, a decrease of
only six.
Durastanti called this first
day of school the best in his
career. "It was extremely
smooth," he said. "I didn't see a
crying eye anywhere, though
I'm sure there were some. And
the offices were cleared out
pretty quickly. Parents did their
paperwork at little better, I
guess, than in years past."
Along with the first-day total
number of 4,624 students came
40 teachers and guidance coun-
selors experiencing their first
day in Hardee District Schools.
Most of the new hires, Dur-
astanti said, are replacements
for those lost to resignation,
retirement or non-renewal.
And, he said, they will all
have $545 less to spend per stu-
dent than last year, thanks to
state funding cuts amounting to
$2.7 million. Durastanti prom-
ised, however, that the drop in
funding will not be felt in the
classrooms.
Parents will, however, feel
one monetary change. The U.S.
Department of Agriculture, in a
late mandate, required the
school district to raise the price
of its paid school lunches. The
increase amounts to a nickel,
going up to $2.05 at the ele-
mentary schools and $2.30 at
the secondary schools.

We learn courageous
action by going forward
whenever fear urges us
back. A little boy was
asked how he learned to
skate. "By getting up every
time I fell down," he
answered.

financial pledges from individ-
uals to start the project before
being reimbursed by the EDA.
Detwiler said she and Kathleen
Roehm, the marketing director,
have put in more than 2,500
hours of research and work for
the project.
The board will decide if it
will fund any or all of the three
remaining applicants, and for
what amount, on Sept. 27. It
could choose to dispense all,
part or none of the remaining
$2.89 million during the current
funding cycle.
The EDA receives its funding
from a severance tax placed on
phosphate mining in Hardee
County.
The money used to be divid-
ed amongst the counties in the
state until the Florida Legis-
lature changed the law in 2004,
allowing for the money to stay
in the county where the mining
occurs.
The next funding cycle starts
next year, and the EDA should
begin accepting applications in
May or June.
Board members include
David Royal, Bill Beattie,
Miller, Byran, Roger Hood,
Perry Knight, Bill Lambert and
Terry Atchley.

candidates to take a loyalty
oath, fill out a short financial
disclosure form, and open a
campaign account at a bank.
Eligibility requirements are
simple as well. Candidates must
be 18 or older, registered to vote
in the town, and a resident with-
in town limits for at least the
past six months.
Albritton said neither Guer-
rero nor White has returned the
completed qualifying packet as
.yet. Still, there is plenty of time
to do so, or for any other inter-
ested person to begin and com-
plete the process as well.
Guerrero is the daughter of
current Town Commissioner
Sara Schofield. White is a for-
mer town commissioner, re-
cently unseated by Rhonda
Long.
Town commissioners are paid
$150'a month. Whoever is cho-
sen as mayor receives $200
monthly.
Because Zolfo Springs has a
city-manager form of govern-
ment, the mayor's post is no
longer an elected position.
Instead, commissioners them-
selves select one from amongst
their number to serve in the
largely ceremonial position of
mayor.
Neel had been selected by his
fellow commissioners since
2006. Chosen as vice mayor
was Juan Otero, who is now
serving as interim mayor.
Neel's replacement will join
Otero, Schofield, Long and
Lois Dandridge at the commis-
sion table.

The Center for Great Apes is

enclosure to house the apes, and
would create three full-time

ter operates on a roughly $1.3
million annual budget that
comes from private donations,
and has never received public
funding before.
The board expressed a desire
to open the center up to the pub-
lic for tours as a possible stipu-
lation to receiving funds.
Country Gardens, being sub-
mitted by Lavon Cobb and Ed
Pontier, is requesting $2.18 mil-
lion for a 76-bed, $8.5 million
assisted living facility in
Wauchula. Cobb told the board
the grant would trim costs of
the project and make it more
competitive in the marketplace.
The group will try to finance
50 percent of the project, have
the partners put down 25 per-
cent and use the EDA money to
cover the remaining 25 percent.
Pontier said the project will not
get built without receiving the
grant.
Board members expressed
some concern over the facility
being "flipped" and sold soon
after it becomes operational,
and they want stipulations in
place where the money would
be paid back if the facility is
sold soon after completion.

BROTHERHOOD RIDE

Bicyclists with the fourth annual Brotherhood Ride passed through Hardee County on Sunday as they pedal in a show of support for the 411 emergency responders who died
trying to rescue people and put out fires on Sept. 11, 2001. The ride began in Naples on Saturday and will continue for a total of 22 days and 1,600 miles before stopping at
Ground Zero in New York City on Sept. 11. On this, the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 tragedy, 40 first responders from as far away as Texas and Massachusetts are participating
in the three-week ride. Two Hardee County Fire-Rescue firefighter/paramedics are among them, Todd Barton and Bobby Respress. The Brotherhood Ride made a stop at Station
No. 1 in Wauchula for water and rest before continuing north on U.S. 17. The airline JetBlue is a major sponsor of the ride, and has offered to fly all 40 riders back home from
New York City free of charge.

FP&L operates a solar energy farm in DeSoto County on a

An anonymous person has written a letter about a church with
the broken, raised sidewalk on the north side that is a walking haz-
ard and needs to be fixed before someone trips and falls, resulting
in an injury and possible lawsuit. The damaged portion has been
painted yellow. The condition has existed for over two years, the
unnamed person wrote. The church member feels it can be fixed for
$200.
The writer did not indicate the church's name or location,
whether the sidewalk is public or private. A public sidewalk is the


responsibility of a city or county. A sidewalk on private property
would need to be fixed by the property owner. The church may not
even be in Hardee County.

World War I was considered by some to be the "war to end all

slogan happen.

Claude Choules, 110, the last known male veteran of World
War I, died May 5 in Australia. He witnessed the surrender of the
German Navy in 1918 and saw German sailors sink their own fleet
off the coast of Scotland to avoid the ships falling into British
hands, reported the LST534 Newsletter.
Florence Beatrice Green, 110, remains the last known living
female veteran of World War I. She was a member of the Women's
Royal Air Force in the United Kingdom.
She is one of 10 supercentarians--all women--living in the UK,

p.m. at Double J Restaurant. About 35 to 40 people attend the
monthly meetings, reports one citizen.

Adam Basford, national affairs coordinator for Farm Bureau
says immigration reform needs to include "secure borders (aliens
without proper authorization should not be able to just walk into
our country) and willing workers should be able to fill voids in the
workforce.
"The agricultural industry struggles to find a domestic work-
force for manual labor. Many foreign workers want to legally do
these jobs to make a better life for themselves."

Three of Florida's four Cabinet members are graduates of the
University of Florida-- Attorney General Pam Bondi (1987), Chief
Financial officer Jeff Atwater (1981 and 1983) and Agriculture
Commissioner Adam Putnam (1995).
The fourth Cabinet member, Gov. Rick Scott, has a B.A.
degree in business administration from University of Missouri-
Kansas City and a law degree from Southern Methodist University.
Recent polls show his popularity is rising. All four are
Republicans.

Ron Keith wrote earlier this year in Industry Week Magazine
that China's 12th five-year plan "signals a shift toward slower
growth, more domestic consumption and more concern with rais-
ing living standards broadly across the world's most populous
nation."
China remains "the world's factory today" but its labor costs
have increased 128 percent since 2005 and the "Chinese govern-
ment is becoming more particular about the industries it wants to
attract and promote, seeking higher value and cleaner operations."
It is becoming increasingly difficult to get permits for such facto-
ries as circuit board fabrication which require a lot of chemicals
and fresh water.

Jim Rogers, CEO of Duke Energy, recently told the North
Carolina Chamber of Commerce that the U.S. business sector
needs to regain a "sense of purpose." He is quoted by Steve Minter,
editor-in-chief of Industry Week Magazine.
Contributors to the financial crisis of 2008-09 included real
estate speculation, excessive leverage and flawed regulation of the
financial services industry.
Rogers said it is time for businesses to "refocus on purpose
now, on values, on significance." He said purpose-driven capital-
ism means businesses exist to do more than simply make profits.
Manufacturing in America needs to be talked up constantly.
Rogers said it was wrong for years to tell Americans that products
would inevitably be made overseas and that the only ticket to suc-
cess was in the service industries.
Bob Loderstedt, president of the New Jersey Manufacturing
Extension Program, said America needs a range of jobs to give
people options and drive motivation for growth. "If you have only
high-valued work, you are going to be left with a large quantity of
people who are left permanently unemployed. It will boil down to
an extreme 'rich versus poor' society, creating a welfare-state."
Rogers said the U.S. is still the leading manufacturing nation
in the world. Industry, government, labor and academia need to act
with a common purpose to fuel our motivation, rebuild our indus-
trial communities and ensure our international competitiveness in
order to keep the slogan "Made in the USA," wrote Minter.

Ron St. John has been declared as Florida Farmer of the Year
by Florida Farm Bureau. He has about 15,000 dairy cattle in
Gilchrist and Levy counties, including Georgia. He also owns a.
feed company, a farm supply and hardware business, and a sheet
metal fabrication company that also makes roof trusses, wrote G.B.
Crawford in a recent Florida Agriculture magazine.
St. John likes his cattle to graze on grass and also eat agricul-
tural byproducts such as cotton seed hulls, corn husks and citrus
pulp.

Newly elected Republican governors of Florida, Ohio and
Wisconsin this year rejected federal funds for high-speed rail in
their states, reports a recent issue of Industry Week magazine.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott rejected $2.4 billion in federal funds.for a
high-speed rail from Tampa to Orlando.
Scott felt the project would not be successful financially and
could put the state at risk of having to repay the grant if the rail
project failed. Andy Kunz, president and CEO of the U.S. High
Speed Rail Association, believes a network of high-speed electric
trains in the U.S. would help reduce our nation's dependence on
foreign oil.

Planning For Your Future Care


With more Americans livinf
longer lives, there's new inter-
est in purchasing long-term
care insurance to cover costs
generally associated with
aging.
Currently, 8.2 million
Americans have purchased
long-term care insurance that
pays for home care, for assist-
ed living or for care in a nurs-
ing home.
Such long-term health care
costs are not usually covered
by medical insurance, by
Medicare supplement plans or
group insurance. For seniors
on Medicare, the long-term
care benefits are limited-espe-
cially when considering the
cost of a debilitating disease
such as Alzheimer's.
Fortunately, long-term care
insurance may be more afford-
able than you realize. Here are
a few tips on how to save from
the experts at NAIFA:


Take advantage of the tax
deduction. The Internal Rev-
enue Service recently in-
creased deductibility levels for
long-term care policies. If you
own a business, you may be
able to deduct 100 percent of
the cost. As an individual, your
premiums may be partially tax
deductible. Deductibles are
based on age and range from
$330 to $4,110.
Compare policies. Each
insurer sets rates based on the
type of client it seeks to attract.
The company with the lowest
cost for a 55-year-old married
couple may not be the least
expensive for a 55-year-old sin-
gle individual.
Stay healthy. Individuals
with few or no current health
conditions pay less for their
long-term care insurance.
Involve your significant
other. Discounts are offered to
married adults and even unmar-


ried adults who live together if
both individuals purchase insur-
ance coverage.
Add a deductible. De-
ductibles on long-term care
insurance policies are typically
referred to as the Elimination
Period, the number of days you
choose to pay fully until your
benefits for qualifying care
begin. The longer the Elimina-
tion Period, the lower your
annual premium.
Set a defined benefit peri-
od. Deciding how long you will
need the benefits could save
you more than 50 percent of the
cost.
Share benefits. A shared
care benefit gives couples a
pool of money to work with.
Pay your premium once a
year. Monthly premiums typi-
cally cost 7-8 percent more.

sumer.

the NWS mission of protecting
life and property in three ways:
Assist in present and
future warning decisions.
Confirm hazardous
weather detected by National


'Spotter'

Weather Service radars.
Provide verification infor-
mation which can be used for
future research efforts.
Hardee County Emergency,

Better together

Bringing AT&T customers a stronger network faster.
AT&T customers, including those who join us from T-Mobile, will see
significant service improvements from the merger. The addition of
T-Mobile's spectrum resources and thousands of cell sites will quickly
increase capacity and coverage, resulting in better call reliability and
data speeds.
Mobile data traffic on AT&T's network has grown 8,000% over the
last four years: With tablets, cloud computing, and a new generation
of bandwidth-hungry devices on the horizon, demand is expected to
increase an additional 8-10 times by 2015.
Integrating T-Mobile's network resources, while continuing AT&T's
network investment, is the surest, fastest, and most efficient way to
meet this challenge.

Continued innovation for T-Mobile customers.
Through the integration with AT&T, T-Mobile customers can continue
to enjoy innovative technologies, devices, and services for many years to
come. They will have the freedom to keep their existing pricing plans
and phones, and will benefit in the future with expanded capabilities.
T-Mobile customers will also benefit from network enhancements -
such as improved coverage in remote regions and access to AT&T's
planned next generation networks.

Reaching more of Florida with LTE.
LTE technology is a super-fast way to connect to the Internet.
The combination of AT&T and T-Mobile will allow AT&T to expand its
LTE wireless broadband network to cover over 98% of Florida
residents. That means one million more people in Florida, many In
small towns and rural areas, will get access to LTE due to the merger.
Our customers will get a stronger network. The state wilt get a new
choice for broadband. And more of Florida will get access to a
cutting-edge wireless network and all the opportunities it brings.

'Cats Challenge Dragons In Lake Placid


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Don't expect this year's
Kickoff Classic to be a simple
as last year.
In the fall of 2010, the Hardee
Wildcats overwhelmed the
Lake Placid Green Dragons 49-
8. This year's game will be at
Scarborough Field in Lake
Placid and the 'Cats will face a
youthful but intense Green
Dragon squad determined to
improve last year's record.
Hardee has 20 seniors, some
with a lot of experience and
some with less, but all ready to
take control. Add a dozen jun-
iors, a half dozen sophs and
freshman Keyonte Holley and
the 'Cats are ready to.go.
New, or perhaps, returning
offensive coordinator Dale
Carlton has senior quarterback
Colby Baker and soph backup
Kris Johnson to lead his
offense. Junior kicker Octavio
Alvarez returns and will share
time as a receiver and line-
backer.
Also in the backfield for the
Wildcats, expect Andrew


Hooks, Aaron Barker, James
Greene, Keyon Brown, Jesus
Flores, Ledarius Sampson,
Kane Casso and Holley to take
some turns toting the ball.
Look for center Wintz Terrell,
and his sidekicks Dawson
Crawford, Dylan Farr, Uvaldo
Sanchez, Rito Lopez and Dillon
Skitka to make holes for the
backfield, while receivers
Keshun Rivers, Mikey Retana,
Jajuan Hooks, Andrew Hooks,
Carter Lambert and Murrell
Winter will be among those
catching those passes.
Defensively, Coordinator
,Steve Rewis will have a host of
fellows looking to pick off or
bat down passes and stop the
run. Lineman and linebackers
hope to get to the Dragon
offense before the defensive
secondary has to take over.
For the Dragons, there's new-
ness in quarterbacks Junior
Tyler Kelson and soph Robert
Walton. However, they have an
experienced back field in tail-
back A. J. Gayle and fullbacks
Nick Swain and Nevada
Weaver and receivers Devonta


, 'e *. ." -~- *. .


Suiting up to lead the Wildcats are seniors (kneeling, from left) Maxon Delhomme, Keshun Rivers, Deonte Evans,
Jajuan Hooks, Dalton Rabon, Andrew Hooks, Mikey Retana, Justin Knight and Ramiro Briones; (standing) Head
Coach Buddy Martin, Colby Baker, Dylan Farr, Murrell Winter, Dillon Skitka, Wintz Terrell, Dawson Crawford, Carter
Lambert, Uvaldo Sanchez and Rito Lopez.


Chisolm and Julian Martinez .
Lake Placid also has reason-
able size on the defensive line


and speed in the defensive
backfield and secondary..
It ought to be a good test for


the Wildcats. They've had a
summer of conditioning, seven-
on-seven and camp to get ready.


Good crowd support could
make the difference. Game time
is 7:30.


Back To Basics
By lan Rice
Gospel Preacher


'GO TO THE ANT'
Many people are waiting for something to spur them into some
sort of life-change.
Maybe you long for a "religious awakening." Or, maybe you
expect that a really good preacher will have "the right stuff" to
motivate you.
Either way, we can't expect to lie idle with the hopes that
something or someone will spur us into action. We must
decide for ourselves that we will take action!
With the aid of Scripture, we can look at nature itself and
observe some quality lessons"
"Go to the ant, you sluggard! Consider her wavs and be wise.


which, having no captain, overseer or ruler, provides her supplies
in the summer, and gathers her food in the harvest," Proverbs 6:6-
8. When considering the ant, we are to observe her ways and be
wise. The Scriptures tell us that she doesn't have a leader, but is
self-managed. She also chooses wisely to prepare in the summer.
"How long will you slumber, O sluggard? When will you rise
from your sleep? A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of
the hands to sleep So shall your poverty come on you like a
prowler, and your need like an armed man," Proverbs 6:9-11. In
contrast to the ant, we see that the sluggard is concerned with rest.
The Scriptures also tell us here that poverty comes like a "prowler"
or "robber."
There is, without a doubt, spiritual application we can glean
from these truths.
The point that is made here is that we have no ruler in this life.
The choices we make are ours alone. Are you preparing for eterni-
ty while you can?
"For He says: 'In an acceptable time I have heard you, and in
the day of salvation I have helped you.' Behold, now is the accept-
ed time; behold, now is the day of salvation," 2 Corinthians 6:2.
Spiritual sluggards are going to feel their need like an armed


man at their door on the Day of Judgment. Poverty will come like
a prowler to remain for all of eternity.
What are you waiting for? Prepare your soul for eternity by
obeying the gospel. Read, study and obey God's Word.

SThe bride is the daughter of

Albert S. Oren officiating.
Special music was provided by
Diane Gerdes and Dale
Hesemann, both of Lakefield,
Minn., who sang "The Prayer"
and "Thy Will Be Done,"
respectively. An arrangement
of white hydrangeas graced the
church.
The bride was given in mar-
riage by her father. She wore a
cream satin gown with a
sweetheart neckline and a full
skirt. A white silk peony
adorned her hair, and she car-
ried a Bduquet of white ranun-
culus as well as a handkerchief
crafted from the baby bonnet

collar embellished with a fabric
rose and crystals at the neck-
line. The bride's mother wore a
tea-length black dress with a
black, pink and cream floral
jacket with three-quarter-length
sleeves. The groom's mother
wore a silver knee-length dress
with a tiered skirt and beaded
lace three-quarter-sleeved jack-
et.
Each mother carried a silver
tussy-mussy with yellow and
burnt orange mums and roses.
Following the ceremony, a
wedding reception was held at
The White Room in St. Augus-
tine. Yellow and orange lanterns
hung over the dance floor.
Candles and vases of white
hydrangeas decorated the
tables. The wedding cake was
white with white butter cream
flowers and white hydrangeas
on top.
The newlyweds took a hon-
eymoon cruise through the
Caribbean in July. They are at
home in St. Augustine.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Never walk away'from some-
one who deserves help;
your hand is God's hand for.
that person. Don't tell your
neighbor "maybe some
other time" or "try me tomor-
row," when the money's
right there in your pocket.
Proverbs 3:27-28 (ME)
FRIDAY
(Jesus said), "Give to him
who begs from you, and do

not repay, but the righteous
give generously. ... They are
always generous and lend
freely; their children will be
blessed.
Psalm 37:21, 23 (NIV)
SUNDAY
Already you are well to the
fore in every good quality -
you have faith, knowledge,
enthusiasm and your love
for us. Could you not add
generosity to your virtues?
/I Corinthians 8:7 (PME)
MONDAY
David prayed, "O Lord God,
but who am I and who are

You? Everything we have

COURTESY PHOTO
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle receives a framed poster from the Business Law Section
of the Florida Bar from Dorene Yates, the pro bono coordinator for Florida Rural Legal
Services. It reads: "Before you ask me about your case, ask me how you can be the
One." The Florida Bar launched its "One" Pro Bono Campaign with the theme "One
Attorney, One Client, One Promise" to encourage every attorney in Florida to be the
"one" who takes one case at no charge for someone who could not afford a lawyer.
Yates connects with the 1,045 attorneys in the 10th Judicial Circuit, placing pro-bono
civil cases and holding seminars on topics that would meet the needs of the indigent
of the community. She has found that judicial support is crucial, and that the attorneys
of this circuit are generous about offering their services to allow equal justice for all.

Greetings from Fort Green!
We humans are never happy:
First we were too dry; now it is
getting too wet! We received
another good shower Saturday
afternoon.
I have mentioned how many
grapes our vines had this year.
There is the fattest possum I
have ever seen enjoying all the
ones that fall on the ground. He
just waddles when running if he
hears the back door open!
Sherman had to go to Lake-
land last week to the doctor, and
while he was in the lab, a lady
whose husband was in the lab
and I began talking (believe
that!). She said they lived in
Winter Haven and I said Fort
Green, and then she said her
husband grew up in Zolfo
Springs and graduated from
Hardee High in 1954.
I immediately asked if they
were coming to the big reunion
and they were planning on it.
He went by the name W.R. in
school, but is now called Bill
Singleton. She said they were
going to the mountains in
October but were making it
back home in time to attend.
They were looking forward to
visiting with his classmates.
Earl and Mary Bargeron
spent the weekend at Lake
Manatee State Park celebrating
their 57th wedding anniversary
on Aug. 20. Mary said Carol
and Johnny Brown also cele-
brate the same date. Happy an-
niversary wishes to both fami-
lies.
Allen Eures and Avie
Hogenauer spent the weekend
over toward the beach for a lit-
tle relaxation before school
began Monday. They had a
good time.
Betty Waters has another
great-granddaughter, Emmalyn
Rae Chester, born July 22.
Joyce Coker, Cindy Coker and
Betty had lunch Saturday at
Nicholas' with West and Laurn
Chester and baby Emmalyn.
Betty met her new great-grand-
daughter for the first time, as
Betty was on vacation when she
was born. Betty said she was
beautiful, and she looked just


like West when he was a baby!
Joyce Coker and Betty are
great-grandmothers to Emma-
lyn, and Cindy is the proud
grandmother. After lunch they
visited West and Laurn at their
home for the rest of the after-
noon.
Fort Green Baptist is proud
to have CF as a neighbor. They
purchased the backpacks and
the supplies we gave out at our
recent back-to-school bash. Be-
sides purchasing, they also did
the work of filling each back-
pack with the supplies. This
takes a lot of work off our mem-
bers. Thank you is not suffi-
cient, but we do thank them.
Calli Skipper came out and
visited with the children and
saw how happy they were with
their new backpacks. Also,
Buckhorn Nursery gave the
church some oak trees. CF pro-
vided the manpower to get them
set. We sincerely appreciate
both of these companies.
The bowling trip was lots of
fun last Saturday.
Betty Abbott, Betty Waters

and Faye Chancey enjoyed a
trip to Lakeland Friday night to
celebrate Faye's birthday. They
had a wonderful meal at Fred's
and then did some shopping.
Makayla Chancey will be on
crutches on her first day of high
school, with a fractured ankle.
Sherman Cooper is scheduled
for a CT scan; problems with
kidney stones again. James
Williamson was scheduled for a
heart cath last Tuesday. He has
some blockage. Faye Davis got
a good report on her heart cath
but still needs additional test-
ing. Doyle Bryan fell and was
in the local hospital but was
scheduled to be released last
Sundziy.
Please pray for all these, each
other, our nation and the mili-
tary.
Don't forget the covered-dish
dinner on Sept. 11, when we
honor all persons over age'70
who are members of Fort Green
Baptist. Also, remember the
Methodist Cemetery workday
on Sept. 17 and the big reunion
Oct. 28 and 29.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, after a summer of watching the Casey
Anthony Trial, political gridlock over the budget, chaos on Wall
Street and a lockout in the NFL, it is finally here. Football Season
that is!
It's time to: get those tickets ready, get car flags out of storage,
buy your favorite team wear and make plans for the best time-of the
year.
On the high' school scene, it looks to be a good year for the
Hardee Wildcats. The 'Cats' impressive spring game win. over
Bartow hopefully is a preview of what is to come.
College football has seen two movements this summer. One is
from the NCAA as multiple scandals have marred the sport from
Miami, Ohio St. and North Carolina. The situation at Miami has
the nation calling for the Death Penalty for the Canes. An ESPN
Poll of fans ran about 75% for the Death Penalty. There is no ques-
tion it.is not warranted, but will the NCAA enforce it? SMU has
been the only school whose football team has faced it. The long
history of abuses'at Miami makes it the next candidate.
Ohio St. should not be far behind, but would the NCAA again?
From Woody Hayes punching a Clemson player during a play, to
the Art Sclister gambling scandal to Maurice Clarett to the current
Terrell Pryor affair, Ohio St. has been in the news for the wrong
reasons but the NCAA has refused to deal with schools like this. If
these same things happened at North Alabama, Middle Tennessee
St or Kent St., the NCAA would come down hard and say "see we
are policing college athletics" or so it seems.
The most important movement in college football will be the
next round of conference realignment. Major changes are going on
behind the scenes to possibly have four 16 team super conferences.
Texas A & M is going to join the SEC very soorg. That move means
a 14th team must be added for balance in the SEC East.-Missouri
has been rumored to be the next team but the Tigers would really
like a Big 10 invite not the SEC. The logical choice then would be
West Virginia. The Mountaineers fit the footprint for the SEC.
They are the only school in the southeast that would not face polit-
ical fallout for leaving an existing conference.-Plus WVU would
deliver the Pittsburgh TV Market as well as the entire state of West
Virginia. If the SEC would go west for teams, rumors are the ACC
and Big East will merge to form their own Super Conference. The
Big 12 is looking to survive and may also look at BYU,TCU or Air
Force. The Big 10, having added Nebraska, will look east possibly.
How ever it turns out, there will be big changes soon.
The Big 3 Florida teams all look to have reason for optimism.
The Gators, led by new coach Will Muschamp, have only 10 sen-
iors. Will Brantley flourish under Charlie Weiss? Is the schedule a
back breaker? LSU and South Carolina on the road and Alabama
and FSU in the Swamp figure to be the most difficult. Don't expect
an SEC Title in 2011 but 9-3 is not out of the realm of possible.
FSU should walk through the ACC. Jimbo Fisher returns 17
starters. The Noles do face Oklahoma at home in September. The
only ACC teams that should mildly compete with the Noles. are
Maryland and N.C. St. and they are both at home. The FSU-Florida
game is in the Swamp in 2011.
USF is excited for 2011. Skip Holtz is hoping for a fast start
and, if the Bulls can beat Notre Dame, a 4-0 start is very possible.
Could this be the first BCS Bowl for the Bulls? USF travels to
Pittsburgh in September and finishes at home Dec. 1 against Big
East favorite West Virginia. Those games will determine if the
transfer additions and good recruiting over the past two seasons
will pay dividends.

Everything that is really great and inspiring is created by
the individual who can labor in freedom.

Wauchula Watch
By Ofc. Amy Drake
Wauchula Police Department


BACK TO SCHOOL ... SAFELY!
With children going back to the classroom, the Wauchula
Police Department wants to make sure your kids travel safely.
The following back-to-school safety tips will help prevent
accidents as children return to school. Wit, ,,hool starting up,
there will be significantly more traffic in and around the school
areas. Motorists must exercise increased awareness in and around
a school zone.
When driving in neighborhoods with school zones, watch for
children traveling to and from school. Children do not always fol-
low the rules of the'road and are unpredictable in their actions.
Here are some simple tips to make going to school. safer for all
involved:
Motorists
Slow down and be especially alert in the residential neighbor-
hoods and school zones.
Take extra time to look for kids at intersections, on medians
and on curbs.
Enter and exit driveways and alleys slowly and carefully.
Watch for children on and near the road in the morning and
after-school hours.
Reduce any distractions inside your car so you can concentrate
on the road and your surroundings. For example: Put down your
phone and don't talk or text while driving.
When you meet a stopped school bus-with lights flashing and
the stop arm extended, you must stop.
When you approach an intersection where a stopped school
bus has its lights flashing and its stop sign extended, you must stop.
You are required to stop at least 10 feet away from the school.

THE REAL-LIFE COUPLE BEHIND 'THE BLIND SIDE'
Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy are the real-life couple who were
portrayed by Tim McGraw and Sandra Bullock in the award-win-
ning movie "The Blind Side."
If you haven't seen the film, it tells the story of an African-
American teen named Michael Oher who grew up surrounded by
drugs, violence and a lack of stability. A meeting with the Tuohys
- a well-to-do white couple whose son and daughter attended
Briarcrest Christian School in N....,nphis, Tenn. led Michael to
become a part of their family. They championed his education, and
nurtured his talent for football that led him to the NFL.
Sean and Leigh Anne joined me on my radio program
"Christopher Closeup" a while back to discuss their book "In a
Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving." The book gives
more details about their lives than the movie had time to depict.
One of the misconceptions they want to dispel is that Michael
Oher needed to be saved. As Sean explained, "He certainly need-
ed help; he didn't need saving because he was already immensely
talented, intelligent, athletic and gifted. What he needed was an
opportunity. ... All we did was allow him to be who he was sup-
posed to become."
When I asked Sean where he thought Michael would have
ended up if he and Leigh Anne hadn't taken him in, he revealed that
the talented young man might have fallen through society's cracks
- and that thought scared him.
Tuohy said, "If the most obvious success story walking down
the streets of Memphis can fall through the cracks, imagine who
gets left behind. It really ruined our day to think about that. So
we're challenging people out there to turn around, find somebody
(to help). You really could be sitting next to the next Michael
Oher."
Though some people might see Michael's crossing paths with
the Tuohys as luck or chance, Leigh Anne attributes the whole sit-
uation to God.
She said, "I think that the Lord has had a purpose for Michael's
life before he was ever on this earth. We don't believe in coinci-
dence; we don't believe in fate; we don't believe that Michael had
been to three or four schools that day and Briarcrest just happened
to be the one that took him in, that he happened to land in our
daughter's class, and he happened to be walking down the street
that day. We believe it has been God-driven from the very begin-
ning, and that the Lord had a message and a reason for this hap-
pening and that thi is the time this message is to be told. There
are kids that need help; our foster care system needs to be
improved; there are kids that need adopting and we are going to
talk about'it because we think it's that important."
The Tuohys' attitude resonates with us at The Christophers be-
cause it perfectly reflects the message of personal initiative and
responsibility our founder, Father James Keller, set forth.
Instead of letting the opportunity to help someone in need pass
by, the Tuohys acted as Christ-bearers and took it upon themselves
to make a difference. And what was their motivation? Love of God
and love of neighbor.
In Matthew 22:37-39, Jesus reminds us, "You shall love the
Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with
all your mind. This is the greatest and first commandment. And a
second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these
two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."
Thankfully, people like Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy continue
reminding us of this truth today.

By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
To be the best at what you do,
you have to be the best at who
you are.
North Wauchula Elementary
School folks understand this
from both angles as they con-
tinue to be "Champs by Choice."
Principal Tracey Nix is going
into her third year as leader of
this school, and is reaching the
final stage of her three-year plan.
"The first year I spent a lot of
time getting to know the kids,
teachers and how the school is
run," started Nix. "The second
year we implemented all the new
curriculum that I had in mind,
and this last year we are going to
work at being the best at what we
do."
As she implies, no new cur-
riculum will be added this year,


only the focus of really wrapping
their heads around the already
established skills. The overall
goal for the year is to increase
student outcomes and strengthen
teacher instruction.
Key focal points will be in-
creasing skills in thinking maps,
guided reading, higher order
questioning and thinking, differ-
entiation, Next Generation Sun-
shine State Standards, and the
four aspects of language arts: lis-
tening, speaking, reading and
writing. All of which will help to
raise the standards.
With the recent improvements
to the Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test 2.0, an increase
in rigor followed suit. With their
school grade being five points
shy of a B, Nix plans to really
make sure everyone is on the
same page this year.


Target To Be The Best!
Located in one of the older
buildings of the county, NWES
recently has been working on the
appearance of the school. A new
bright-orange, sign has been '.
placed on the front of the school
as well as an additional mural in
the breezeway.
In the field of technological j"
advances, Promethean, boards
have been added to every class-
room in grades 1-5; kindergarten'
classes will be finished next year.
Long-time art teacher Sue
Harvey retired this past year.
New teachers include Melanie
Nuccio, kindergarten; Kelly
Moye, fifth grade' and Nicole
Albritton, exceptional student
education.
The school's new media spe- .
cialist is Michele Dick. New : '
paraprofessionals are Jennifei
Tavarez and Tara Santoyo. ,

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


HARDEE COUNTY CATTLEMEN'S RANCH RODEO
Cowboys and cowgirls, fast-moving horses, ropes at the ready,
bucking broncs put them all together with Sharnell's homemade
desserts at the concession stand and you've got the Hardee County
Cattlemen's Association annual ranch rodeo!
This year's was the third event, and it was a Florida Cattle-
men's Association qualifying ranch rodeo, held on July 22-23.
Then we were all back together to do it again the next week-
end, on July 29-30, this time at the Arcadia rodeo grounds, for the
DeSoto Cattlemen's Association qualifier, benefiting their Future
Farmers of America and the Junior Cattlemen's Association.

a .


As has come to be expected, Hardee County was represented
on several teams: the Carlton Ranches, made up of Matt Carlton,
Trae Adams, Clint Boney and Dale Carlton, joined by his sister,
Millie Bolin; the K&M Cattle team, better known as the FINR
cowboys, this time sans Steve Freely, who was too sick to compete,
so James and Paula Scott headed up this team; and the M&N Cattle
team, with locals Peck Harris and Luke Cantu, but William Perry
stepped in for their injured bronc rider, and Luke was also out with
an injury.
Carlton Ranches and M&N Cattle competed at both Hardee
and.DeSoto, plus in Okeechobee's ranch rodeo, also held on July
22-23. And let's not forget Robbie Lynn Burnette, who stepped in
as the female team member for LS Ranches in both Hardee and
Okeechobee (and who made a new friend in Buck Lee).
But I'm going to start with the littlest cowpokes the mutton
busters. Friday night saw Zack Carlton, Nathan Hughes and Ashton
Bass, all from Hardee County, but they got beat out by Cross
Fulford. Special guest Cody Vina, last year's winner, was inter-
viewed by announcer Jimmy Carter.
The Florida CattleWomen had a table set up both nights, dis-
tributing literature about their organization and the cattle industry.
Wendy Petteway is the current president of the state association,
and she was selling tickets for a shotgun. Reyna Speckman, presi-
dent of the Hardee County association, was there assisting.
And, of course, "royalty" was present, with Kyndall Robert-


son, the Hardee County Cattlemen's reigning Sweetheart, enjoying
the action both nights. (And where was Queen Grace, I wonder?)
Saturday's riders and the winner will be featured in next
week's column.
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.
Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding,
Cowboys and Cowgirls!


Cody Vina, local cowboy and last year's winner, is inter-
viewed by announcer and cowboy Jimmy Carter.

exit from the chute.

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
The State Bank of Bowling
Green closed its doors to the
public on Saturday afternoon.
All accounts and business mat-
ters have been transferred to
Wauchula State Bank. The bank
at Bowling Green was pur-
chased by J.W. Crews, presi-
dent of Wauchula State Bank,
and his associates some time
ago. Wauchula State Bank is
now the only banking institu-
tion in Hardee County, with
total deposits of better than
$855,000 and total resources
better than $956,000.

It isn't the boom days, but lit-
tle city has suddenly gone on a
building surge with three new
residences. The Presbyterian
church is planning to build its
manse at the corner of West
Oak Street and North Tenth
Avenue at a cost of $5,000. It
will be located in the middle of
three lots and will be one and a
half stories high, according to
the Rev. J. Russell Young, pas-
tor of the church.

At least three packing houses
will be operating in Wauchula
and one in Zolfo Springs. It is
hoped that growers will "trade
at home and use them." Some
of these packing houses here
are among the oldest and largest
operators in Florida.

An ad announces the "open-
ing of Crews' Store, Hardee
County's newest complete food
store, owned and operated by
two local boys whose name it
bears, first door east of the 10-
cent store and across from X-
Cel Feed Stere." Specials -this
weekend include bulk prunes
five cents a pound, Irish pota-
toes 10 pounds for 28 cents,
Maxwell House coffee 26 cents
a can, and a 42-ounce box of
oats for 17 cents.

the vehicle was hit head-on by a

Prices at the Hardee Live-
stock Market were up 92 cents a

23 months, said market manag-
er Russell Farmer. Best prices,
$75 to $137.50, were for cows
and calves in pairs. A total of
1,013 head of cattle were sold,
including 806 calves. Prices
ranged from $15.25 to $20 for
steers, with similar ranges for
heifers, calves, cows and bulls.

Hardee County teachers wel-
comed 3,630 students to school
on Monday morning. "That's
115 less than last year," said
Schools Superintendent Peggy
Shackelford, who said she
expected enrollment to increase
after Labor Day. Of the 263
teachers, three were beginning
teachers and 59 had more than
16 years of instructing students.

After several lengthy ses-
sions, chief negotiators for the
Hardee County Education
Association and the Hardee
County School Board came to
an agreement last week on
teacher pay increases. The
teachers' union had wanted a
one-time $1,490 pay adjust-
ment for parity with teachers
around the state plus a 6.1 raise.
The administration offered a
flat 4.5 percent increase. When
negotiations were completed, it
was an average eight percent
hike. A beginning teacher's
salary was up from $16,000 to
$17,230. A teacher with 16 or
more years at the top of the pay
scale went from $24,000 to
$26,260.

Industrial Development Au-
thority Chairman Joe L. Davis
Jr. and member Bobby Hanchey

estate for 17 acres off Pecan
Avenue for Hardee County's

Promotion/Grade Classification High School, 9-12
1. To be classified as a high school FRESHMAN, a student must have been assigned to the ninth grade by his/her
Junior High School principal.
2. Zero Grade Progression
For the first three years a student is in high school, the student will advance from one grade level designation to the
next based upon completion of a school year of attendance. This will be known as the zero progression plan, whereby
a student begins high school as a freshman, the second year of high school attendance will carry a designation of
sophomore, the third year of high school attendance will carry the designation of junior. The student will then remain
at the junior desigrfation until the student has met the grade level classification to be a senior, as indicated in the Stu-
dent Progression Plan for the appropriate graduating class.
This policy will be effective as of 2010 provided that the student has participated in the required state assessment for
grades nine and ten.
3. To be classified as a SENIOR, a student must have earned a total of seventeen (17) credits. Senior status privileges
will be dependent upon the student's possibility of graduating during that school year.
