Robbery Suspects Quickly Ja


ed


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Three men who allegedly
robbed a man outside a local
grocery store late Saturday
night were apprehended within
an hour, the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office reported.
Booked into the Hardee
County Jail on robbery charges
were Rolie Gamble, 52, of 4219
Church Ave., Bowling Green;
Carl Anthony Luke, 26, who
listed addresses of 110 Bent
Oak Loop, Davenport, and
4219 Church Ave., Bowling
Green; and Travis McGill, 52,

also of 4219 Church Ave. in
Bowling Green.
Gamble, who was driving
when the men were stopped at
the corner of Will Duke and
South roads in Wauchula, addi-
tionally was charged with hav-
ing no valid driver's license.
Each man remained behind
bars as of Wednesday morning
of this week, Gamble in lieu of
$5,250 bond and Luke and
McGill in lieu of $5,000 cash or
surety bond.
Maj. Randy Dey of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
said the alleged robbery oc-


curred at about 10:15 p.m.
behind the Winn-Dixie Mar-
ketplace on U.S. 17 north of
Wauchula.
Dey said a man riding a bicy-
cle through the back parking
area came upon the three men at
the Dumpster behind the store.
One of the trio asked him for a
cigarette while the other two
came up behind him, the major
described.
The victim said one of the
men put a gun to the back of his
head, then reached into his
pockets, stealing $91 in cash, a

Seniors rule at Hardee Senior High School. And, of course, Wildcat Football rules in all of Hardee County. Combine
the two for a fun display of school pride as this trio takes advantage of the Hardee High tradition of wearing Senior
Spirit Crowns on Spirit Fridays. It's back-to-school and back-to-the-bleachers time in Hardee County! Here's hoping
(from left) Dawson Crawford, Justin Knight and Colby Baker decree that the varsity team reigns supreme on the grid-

cially put their names on the
ballot.
A town election will be held
on Monday, Sept. 12
The special election was
made necessary by the sudden
death of commissioner and
mayor George Neel. Neel died
Aug. 2 just a short time after
leaving Town Hall, where he
had been signing papers and
talking with staff. He was 72.
Neel had held Seat 2 on the
Town Commission.
Now, town voters will choose
between Guerrero and White to
finish out Neel's unexpired
term, serving until the next
General Election in 2012.


Guerrero resides at 402
Fourth St. E. This is her first bid
at elected office.
Guerrero is the daughter of
Sara and Mike Schofield. Sara
Schofield is a current town
commissioner. Mike Schofield
has served many roles in the
town, both elected and appoint-
ed, having been a commission-
er, mayor and town manager.
White, of 3404 Acorn Dr., is a
former town commissioner, just
recently unseated by political
newcomer Rhonda Long.
White is retired -from the
State Attorney's Office in
Wauchula, and hopes to once
again be able to add her knowl-


edge and experience to the
commission.
Town commissioners are paid
$150 a month. Whoever is cho-
sen for the ceremonial role of
mayor receives $200 monthly.
Neel had been selected by his
fellow commissioners to fill the
mayoral slot since 2006.
Chosen as vice mayor was Juan
Otero, who is now serving as
interim mayor.
Whoever is elected to
become Neel's replacement will
join Otero, Sara Schofield,
Rhonda Long and Lois
Dandridge at the commission
table.


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Mosaic has filled another ap-
peal with the Federal Appellate
Court in Atlanta in an effort to
allow the company to continue
mining after a U.S. District
Court temporarily shut the mine
down.
The company is requesting a
limited stay that would allow it
to mine a tract it calls "Area 2,"
which is 600 acres of uplands
and would provide up to one
year of phosphate reserves.
In addition to the stay,
Mosaic is requesting the court
expedite the oral arguments and
final dispositions of the appeal
and to treat the case as time sen-
sitive.
"Because of the profound
harm caused by the second
injunction, it has become
impracticable to continue to
wait for a ruling from the dis-
trict court," the company stated
in court filings.


Mosaic is also arguing that a
Section 404 Clean Water Act
permit is not required to mine
the property because it is 98
percent uplands and no wet-
lands would be affected.
The company currently only
has one dragline operating in
Polk County, digging lesser
quality reserves that might
never have been mined if the
Hardee County extension had
not been shut down.
Two draglines sit idle in
Hardee County, while the fourth
is being repaired and will cross
back into Polk County to begin
mining the limited reserves
alongside the other machine.
For now, Mosaic has avoided
any layoffs and does not antici-
pate having to do so at this time.
The South Fort Meade plant
produces six million tons of
phosphate annually, accounting
for 37 percent of Mosaic's year-
ly production of 16 million

CLEARING THE SMOKE:


A Close Look At Hardee County Fire-Rescue


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
This is the first in a two-part
series on the Hardee County
Fire-Rescue Department, what
services it entails and its costs.
The Hardee County Fire-
Rescue Department is assigned'
24-hour responsibility for the
health and welfare of local folks
and visitors anywhere in the
637 square miles of the county,
which has a current year-round


population estimate of 29,415.
That swells in the height of the
season when winter visitors and
seasonal workers fldod the
county.
This is accomplished with
three ambulances and a reserve,
three front-line engines and a
reserve, two tankers and three
brush trucks.. On a normal day,
with no one out ill or on vaca-
tion, there are six staff at
Station I in Wauchula, five at


Station 2 in Zolfo Springs and
two in Bowling Green's Station
3. If anyone is out, the loss
comes at the main station in
Wauchula, which may operate
with only four or five staff.
All staff are cross-trained, as
firefighter/paramedics or fire-
fighter/Emergency Medical
Technician. Following is a
review of how each functions in
either the medical or firefighter
roles.


EMERGENCY MEDICAL
CALLS
Fire-Rescue Chief Mike
Choate explained recently how
his department follows the

dards for deployment of person-

If it is a medical call, para-
medics do a primary and sec-

Does the person have a clear
airway? Can he/she breath

Herald-Advocate Price

Increase Coming Oct. 6
The single-copy price of The Herald-Advocate on Oct. 6 will
increase to 75 cents from 50 cents, announced publisher James
R. Kelly. The last price increases were.in 1995 and 1980.
Increased costs of payroll, paper, ink, insurance, fuel, elec-
tricity, supplies, taxes and other components have caused the
need for a price hike, said Kelly. There will be increases in mail
subscriptions also on Oct. 6.
The new price wilt include 70 cents to The Herald-Advocate
and 5 cents in state sales tax.
The paper is currently distributed in 26 stores, 26 coin-oper-
ated racks, and through the U.S. mail.
"We try hard every week to publish a good quality newspa-
per that serves Hardee County. We greatly value our readers,
advertisers and employees," said the publisher.
The Herald-Advocate dates to 1900 with The Florida
Advocate and a 1955 combining of The Florida Advocate and
the Hardee County Herald.
The current press run is 4,500 which, should rise to 4,900 or
5,000 in February, said Kelly, adding that winter residents have
a welcome impact on the county's economy.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Football fans should see a great game Friday at 7 p.m. at
Hardee Stadium when the Wildcats host a strong Fort Meade
Miners team. The Miners have won three times in a row over
Hardee, although one game was shortened and not official.
Hardee is much improved over last year. The Miners are good
at running, passing, defense and special teams. Both teams have
some outstanding athletes and great coaches. The Cats could win
27-24.

Austin Rivers, 18, of Winter Park High School led his team to
two straight state titles in basketball and plans to play for Duke. His
father is Doc Rivers, a former basketball great and current head
coach of the Boston Celtics.
Austin's oldest brother Jeremiah was a senior starter last year
at Indiana University. His sister Callie is a soccer player at UF. His
younger brother Spencer plays basketball at Winter Park High.
Their mother Kristen was also a good athlete.

The Tampa Bay Rays are to be congratulated for winning so
many games after losing so many players in the off season, con-
sidering their relatively low payroll compared to AL East leaders in
Boston and New York.

Vikram Rao, owner of Wauchula Pharmacy, suggests people
get to know their local pharmacist instead of ordering from mail
order pharmacies. Filling prescriptions helps the local economy.
Generics can often be used to save money over name brands.
My brother-in-law, Pete Partridge, has been a great pharmacist for
decades. He founded Pete's Pharmacy in Wauchula and now lives
in Virginia, working part-time for CVS.
Some people are taking so many prescriptions that one doctor
and one pharmacist should know the entirety. Some prescription
drugs are harmful when taken with other prescribed medicines.

Dr. Ross Hendry, a local veterinarian who teaches Sunday
School at First Baptist Church in Wauchula, knows a lot about ani-
mal and human health. He says many cancers occur when the
body's immune system gets weak.
The body even produces cells that kill rogue cancer cells. I
would surmise that a person should try to keep the immune system
strong to help ward off diseases.
Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, who used to be known for
his fondness for cheeseburgers, has had some heart disease and
now is a vegetarian. He was featured in a recent CNN report called
"The Last Heart Attack."
Clinton says he avoids meat, dairy and eggs. I always thought
he was such a friendly, pleasant, outgoing leader. He served two
terms, and the U.S. had a strong economy during most of his pres-
idency.
Late-night comics used to joke about his love for burgers and
fries. Clinton did say this past Thanksgiving he did eat one bite of
turkey. I wonder if it was a little bite or a great big chomp.

AARP Magazine writer Holly St. Lifer says a good night's
sleep is good for the brain by helping to regenerate neurons that
enable the brain to function optimally, quoting Dr. Jane Ferrie, a
senior researcher at University College London Medical School.
Too little sleep ages the brain. Too much sleep also promotes
cognitive decline, possibly from depression, heart disease or other
illness. Ferrie recommends six to eight hours of good sleep.

AARP reports foods that are good for the eyes-carrots,
spinach, salmon, blackberries, soy and orange bell peppers.

Margaret Evon King, 85, of Wauchula was born in Fort Myers
and died Aug. 5 in Wauchula. Gospel Tabernacle Pastor Harold
Howze preached her funeral at Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Home
Aug. 9.
She had several children, 9 grandchildren and 14 great-grand-
children.
"God threw away the mold when He made her. She was real,"
said Rev. Howze of the caregiver and evangelist.
Howze described her as loving, kind, forgiving, complimenta-
ry, happy, alive, helping, caring (she would cry with you), faithful,
encouraging, and frank. "She served the Lord in her late days. She
was wise, not well educated, of average intelligence but with excel-
lent wisdom, went through some hard times, was not a quitter. She
was an exhorter. She hung with those who helped her stay close to
the Lord. She prayed a lot, loved God, the church, the Gospel and
God's people.
"She came into our lives for a purpose. It's our time to be a
flower, to blossom. She was not in pursuit of riches or retirement."
Howze compared her life to Saul of Tarsus who was touched
by God on the road o Demascus and later became Paul.
She gave up for adoption at least one child, Curtis Lee
Stanford, who grew up to be Bob Douglas Jr. who was re-united a
few months ago with his birth mother. A newspaper article helped
bring them together.

It is the stretched soul that makes music, and souls are
stretched by the pull of opposites-opposite bents,
tastes, yearnings, loyalties. Where there is no polarity--
where energies flow smoothly in one direction-there
will be much doing but no music.
-Eric Hoffer


The Hardee Wildcat football squad dominated the Lake Placid
Green Dragons 42-3 on Friday in Lake Placid. It will be a differ-
ent kind of encounter when the Wildcats host the Fort Meade
Miners this Friday night at 7. The Miners have beaten the Wildcats
for three consecutive seasons. Will this be the turnaround for the
'Cats? They have 18 seniors and several experienced underclass-
men as well. On Sept. 9, the 'Cats swing over to Avon Park to take
on the Red Devils on their turf.

Coach Rod Smith and company have the junior varsity ready
for a trip to Mulberry to open the season on Thursday night at 7.
The first home game is Sept. 8 against DeSoto. Come out and cheer
for the junior 'Cats.

Junior High football is also on the practice field with Coach
Mark Carlton and associates. The first game of the season is Sept.
20 at Lake Placid.
Speaking of junior high, the softball team is also getting prac-
tice under way. The first game is Sept. 19 at home against Avon
Park.

Getting back to high school sports, volleyball was among the
first to start. The varsity girls played in a tournament in Polk
County on Saturday and started the regular season Monday with a
trip to Bradenton Southeast. They were home on Tuesday evening
for a visit from Sebring and today (Thursday) go to DeSoto. The
JVs play at 6 p.m. and varsities about 7:30 when warmups after the
JV game are completed.

Both golf teams also got going on Tuesday afternoon. The girls
hosted a tri-match scrimmage with both Frostproof and Avon Park
at Torrey Oaks. The boys played DeSoto at the Bluffs. Both teams
start the golf matches about 4 p.m.

The swimming and diving teams jump into action today
(Thursday) at 5:30 p.m. at the Winter Haven pool in a quad-meet.
Come at to the Rec. Complex pool just north of the high school
next Tuesday as Hardee hosts Av on Park. It should be a good meet.

Cross country should be starting soon. We haven't gotten the
schedule as yet. Coach Don Trew should have a good turnout this
year.

Summer recreational sports ended recently.
Gilliard's Fill Dirt and its Dirty Dozen took the regular Men's
Community League title and did not play'in the double-elimination
post-season tournament. Peac6 River Electric Cooperative Inc. and
its Legion of Doom had three close encounters with the Mosaic #1
Regulators before winning the championship game 20-18. My,
what excitement!
On the Women's Church League side of the ledger, Holy Child
Qatholic took the season title with an 11-2 record. First Christian
Church snatched the 16-15 championship game in the single-elim-
ination tournament for the tournament title.

So, the only sport left to report on is boxing. Dillet Frederick
won by a first round knockout on Saturday night in Fort Myers. He
hopes to fight again in November.
Daniel Lozano has been scheduled for a Sept. 9 title fight in the
main event. Opponent Ernie Marquez, however, has withdrawn,
leaving promoters to find an opponent in a little more than a week.
At state is the WBC USBNC title, hopefully the first of many for
Lozano. .. .,,,
Senior fighter Edner tCherry is scheduled for. a fight in
Hollywood on Sept. 23 and hopes to fight in Tampa in late October
or November.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call me at 773-3255, or e-mail me at news.heral-

Letter To The Editor

Zolfo Commissioner's

Daughter Seeks Post


Dear Editor:
Citizens of Zolfo Springs ...
Are you aware of a situation,
which may take place, in an
upconiing election,. in which a
sitting commissioner's-daughter
is running for a seat on the com-
mission, due to the recent pass-
ing of George Neel?
Would this not give the
appearance of a great possibili-
ty of the eventual violation of
the Government and Sunshine
Law? In the event that the
young woman is elected, here
would be an example of how
easily this could happen.
EXAMPLE ONLY: The
mother and daughter, both com-
missioners of Zolfo Springs, are
in town, and they are ap-
proached by a concerned citizen
of the town, with a very perti-
nent question about an issue the
commissioners will be dis-
cussing at a future meeting, If
one of the commissioners
answers the concerned citizen's
question, in one way or another,
then has the Government and
Sunshine Law been violated,
because now, the other commis-
sioner knows what the answer-
ing commissioner's 'thoughts
are about the issue? The con-
cerned citizen leaves, his ques-
tion has been answered by one


of the commissioners, BUT
both commissioners are now
involved, due in fact, that a
question has been answered
with both commissioners pres-
ent. Do they (the commission-
ers) discuss the issue further?
I know that it is unconstitu-
tional not to allow a qualified
individual to run for an elected
office. It is their right. However,
with the recent firing of some of
the commissioners in Wau-
chula, by the Governor of
Florida, for the violation of the
Government and Sunshine Law,
is Zolfo Springs ready to come
under the close scrutiny of the
same kind?

Respectively,
Terrin L. McKelvey-Green
Zolfo Springs

Editor's Note: The town elec-
tion will be Sept. 12 to fill the
seat held by Rev. George Neel,
who passed away Aug. 2.
Running are Marie Guerrero,
daughter of town commission
member Sara Schofiled, and
former commission member
* DiDi White. Terrin McKelvey-
Green's late husband, Roger
Green, served on the town com-
mission for one term after the
hurricanes in 2004.

he was ordered to the ground.
The three men fled, driving
away in a white Ford F150
pickup truck.
That vehicle was detained in
a traffic stop by Cpl. Todd
Souther until Det. Sylvia
Hendrickson arrived on the
scene at Will Duke and South
roads. The victim was then


transported to the scene as well,
Dey said, and provided a posi-
tive identification of the sus-
pects.
Dey said items stolen in the
robbery were recovered.
No gun, or any other weapon,
was found, however. Instead,
one of the suspects allegedly

the victim's head, Dey said.

The decreased production at
South Fort Meade has caused
the company to increase pro-
duction at its three other mines
to make up for the shortfall.

on July 8 to give himself more

whether or not to issue a perma-
nent injunction against the
mine.


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
It was announced today that
formal applications are avail-
able for persons for old age
assistance under the National
Social Security Act. It is the
first sign that Florida will par-
ticipate in the old age assistance
plan beginning Oct. 15. Staffs
of the district board will make
the investigations to determine
eligibility. It is for those over 70
without resources to pay food,
clothing and shelter. The
amount will vary from five to
30 dollars a month, depending
on need.

Democrats from all over
Florida will meet on Labor Day
to officially open President
Roosevelt's re-election cam-
paign. State headquarters will
be opened in Jacksonville next
month.

A number of indigent Hardee
County residents have benefited
from the Civil Conservation
Corps since the Emergency
Conservation work program
was started by President
Roosevelt three years ago.
Enrollees are paid $30 per
month, with $25 of the wage
sent to their dependents at
home: The CCC was organized
to relieve unemployment and
provide for the restoration of
natural resources in an orderly
program of useful public works.

Wauchula Post Office can
now give the best of speed as
the postal service has taken, to
air service. For the small sum
of six cents, any letter not
weighing more than one ounce
can be sent anywhere in the
United States. Wauchula mail
connects to the air freight in
Lakeland. Air mail posted
before 10 a.m. in Wauchula will
be delivered the next morning
as far west as Omaha and far
east as Bangor, Maine.

50 YEARS AGO
A bridge washout on the new
Dick Williams Road at Hickey
Branch has raised questions of
the county budget. The proper
construction of bridges and
bridge approaches to withstand
floods is most important, but
county officials says road and
bridge funds are in short supply,
especially in some districts.
This leads that more than half
the homes in the county did not
pay a penny of taxes last year
because of the low assessment.
At the present rate, they will
again not pay a penny of county
or school taxes.

A 40-foot pole and 10-foot
crossarm owned by the-Peace
River Valley Electric Mem-
bership Cooperative was stolen
sometime Tuesday evening.
Ivan Tillyou, the company man-
ager, says the entire assembly
would weigh between 1,200
and 1,400 pounds. He is more
interested in how an article that
heavy and that long could be
stolen along a well-traveled
road. Anyone with that much
ingenuity might apply at the
REA office for a job.

The Hardee County Library
closed this week as staff and
volunteers moved books and
furniture from the old Ausley
Memorial Library building to
the county annex on U.S. 17
North. Librarian Erwin Mapp
says he hopes to reopen in the
new location by Sept. 2. Those
who have books to return can
use the book return slot just
south of the Circle 3 Western

Payne's Creek Primitive Baptist Is 141 Years Old


By Charlotte Albritton Truitt
Special To The Herald-Advocate
The 141st annual meeting of
Payne's Creek Primitive Bap-tist
Church was held on the third
Sunday in August 2011. The
church was constituted in 1870,
just after the Civil War was over,
and has held services every third
Sunday since, except in August
2004 when Hurricane Charley
hit Hardee County.
The Payne's Creek Church,
built in the Florida wilderness, is
one of the oldest churches in
Florida. "Primitive" means the
',early church." The old white
wooden church is basically the
same as ever in looks, except for
some modernization. Im-prove-
ments include air conditioning,
indoor toilets, carpets, fluores-
cent lighting, and paneling. The
elevated pulpit still commands
center-stage, flanked by two
short rows of pews facing the
pulpit. Male elders and deacons
traditionally have sat in the left
pew, the "Amen" pew, and
women used to sit in the right
pew. The rest of the church is di-
vided into two long rows of com-
fortable, green-cushioned oak
pews facing the pulpit.
On August 20, 2011, after the
singing was over Elder Hollis
Albritton Jr., pastor, welcomed
members and guests and an-
nounced that Elder Lloyd Cun-
ningham and Brother Gary Ellis,
a lawyer who is soon to be or-
dained by Corinth PBC, were
slated to preach before he did.
Communion and foot-washing
for members were scheduled to
follow the services.
Hymns are still sung without
musical instruments, according
to tradition, and the singing is led
by two or three men standing
below the pulpit. One man will
start the song and everybody
joins in. The sopranos carry the
song, ably served by the women
sing alto. In earlier days the
sounds of favored old songs such
as "Star of Bethlehem" and
"Rock of Ages" poured out of
the church's open windows onto
the grassy church grounds. At fu-
nerals the hushed, plaintive
sounds of "Precious Memories"
and "Amazing Grace" helped
comfort the bereaved.
Communion for church mem-
bers still consists of sips of wine
and small pieces of homemade
unleavened bread. Every church
member has previously been
baptized in a nearby creek, even
if it's in the icy waters ofa Feb-
ruary. Elder Johnny Bowen used
to smile and proclaim, "You
won't be cold. You'll be warm in
the love of Jesus."
Foot-washing, a somber act of
humility for members, is a tradi-
tion that began in the imitation of
the foot-washing first done by
Jesus with His Apostles. One
member kneels at another mem-
ber's foot, places the foot in a
clean basin of lukewarm water,
gently washes, then dries the foot
with clean linens. Then the two
church members exchange
places.
Dinner-on-the-grounds after
church services are over used to
be held under a long, weathered
wooden shed behind the church,
its tables loaded with food. No-
body ever left hungry. After
church services, food was re-
trieved from buckboards or wag-
ons, and later, from truck beds or
the "cooter hulls" of cars and
placed on the tables by the
women. Bowls and platters of
Southern cooking delighted the
eyes of the farmers and cowboys
who were used to eating three
large meals a day to obtain the
proteins and carbohydrates nec-
essary for working out-of-doors
on the farms and ranches.
The high weathered food ta-
bles held an assortment of fried
chicken, fried pork chops, fried
steak, chicken and rice, chicken
and dumplings, pot roast, fried
fish, and maybe fried gator tail or
venison. Homegrown vegetables
such as green beans and black-
eyed peas were usually boiled a
long time with pieces of fatback.
Home-grown corn would be cut
of the cob and gently boiled with
butter until creamy. Swamp cab-
bage hearts, cut from young
palm trees in a swamp the day
before, would be boiled with salt
pork or bacon until tender, A
platter of fried squirrel or rabbit,
shot the day before during the
foray for the swamp cabbage,
was a bonus. There'd be big


slices of hams from butchered
hogs, and perhaps, some cold,
I homemade hogshead cheese.
Also on the tables were
casseroles, potato salads, lettuce
and tomato salads, and always,
big, hot buttered biscuits and
cornbread. Desserts included a
variety of cakes and pies, includ-
ing Louise Jordan Albritton's fa-
mous coconut cream, lemon
meringue, and pecan pies.
Josephine Alderman Albritton


was known for her big bowls of
ambrosia made with cans of fruit
cocktail, with coconut and
peeled orange and grapefruit
slices from her groves. People
searched the table for her won-
derful pound cakes and her (Mrs.
Harvey's) fruitcakes, made with-
out citron. Margaret Albritton
Polk always made wonderful
guava cobblers and guava mar-
malade to smear on hot biscuits.
A clean new washtub loaded
with sweet tea and ice would sit
on the table, inviting in the heat.
Though already sated with the
smorgasbord of food, children
would drift under the shed to
take one more drumstick or one
more piece of cake before look-
ing around for cousins and
friends. The children's full stom-
achs made them forget their
boredom and impatience while
sitting through sermons of two or
three preachers.
Payne's Creek Cemetery, on
the north side of the church, rests
under scattered old live oaks,
filled with names including Ab-
bott, Albritton, Allbritton, Alder-
man, Altman, Bryant, Cowart,
Crawford, Dotson, Driggers,
Durrance, Grice, Holland, John-
son, Keene, King, Lastinger,
Miller, Moye, Parrish, Peeples,
Polk, Revell, Studstill, Talley,
Thomas, Thornton, Walker,
Whidden, and others. The old
peaceful cemetery is larger now,
and is considered one of the pret-
tiest around.
Elder Hollis Albritton Jr., pas-
tor of Payne's Creek PBC, along
with Lex Albritton, county man-
ager in Wauchula, Ben Albritton,
Florida State Representative (R)
District 66, and many, many
other Albrittons in Central
Florida descend from Noah
Samuel Allbritton, the Clerk of
Payne's Creek PBC in 1874.
Noah Samuel's fragile 1874
Church Minutes, written in an el-
egant, spidery script, possibly
with a quill and ink, are still kept
by Hollis' sister, LaVerne Albrit-
ton Knight, current Payne's
Creek Clerk, in a vault. See Pat
Grice Gugle's August 2011 up-
ddted, "Albritton Family His-
tory," for listings of descendants
of the Albrighton/Albritton line.
Noah Samuel Allbritton's wife
was Lucina, who was born De-
cember 26, 1827, and thought to
be part Indian. Oral tradition
says she was the daughter of
James Griffin and Nancy Burn-
side. Elder Hollis Albritton Jr.'s
genealogy line is:
(1) Francis Albrighton, of
England, who bought property in
in 1651 in York County, VA, just
across the James River from
James-town, VA. Francis' de-
scendants include: (2) George
Albrighton, born 1636, a planter
in York County, VA; (3) Ralph
Albrighton, planter; (4) Thomas
Albrighton, saddler; (5) James
Albritton, saddler and planter;
(6) Thomas Albritton; (7) John
Albritton, Revolutionary Sold-
ier, in VA/NC Militia; (8)
Thomas Henry Albritton Sr.,
born 1776, (2nd LT, GA Militia;
Sheriff, GA; 1838 Second Semi-
nole War; Justice of Peace, and
progenitor of all Albrittons in
FL); (9) Noah Samuel Allbritton,
(progenitor of many of the
Albritton members of Payne's
Creek PBC and in Hardee
County); (10) William Henry
(Bill) Albritton; (11) James Jack-
son Albritton; (12) Hollis Albrit-
ton, Sr.; (13) Hollis Albritton, Jr.;
(14) Cindy and Kathy; and (15)
Brianna and Devin.
Elder Hollis Albritton Jr., and
wife Linda Bowen Albritton live
on their beautiful, 375 acre cattle
ranch south of Zolfo Springs.
Tall stands of mature cypress
trees dot the landscape. Every
day Linda gets in her four-wheel-
drive truck and slowly drives
through the ranch, looking for
new calves or injured cattle or
broken fences. "People ask me
if I ride a horse to check the pas-
tures," Linda said, "But I always
tell them I've got 300 horses
right under me." In one corner of
the pasture there's a bulldozed-
out water hole, which a gator de-
cided to turn into his own,
private bathtub. Linda said, "The
cows do step down the banks to
the water to drink, but they know
the gator's there and they keep
an eye on him."
As a young man, Hollis was a
cowboy and helped his Fort
Green father, Hollis Albritton Sr.,
work his cows, farm, and grow


citrus. Linda, a painter, treasures
her photograph of a young Hollis
Jr., dressed in jeans, boots, and a
cowboy hat riding his horse
while holding his young son.
Kevin, in front of him. Kevin
died accidentally at age 15, and
Kevin's death led to Hollis be-
coming a preacher. Currently,
Primitive Baptist churches in
other Southeastern states invite
Hollis to go visit them and
preach there.


Linda Bowen Albritton and Elder Hollis Albritton Jr., pastor,
at the side entrance of Payne's Creek PBC.


"When I lost my son, Kevin, in
my grief, I got mad at God. And
I told God about some of my kin-
folks who had more than one
son, and I asked God why did He
do this to me. I was mad," said
Hollis. "But after I got mad at
God, I thought about it, and I re-
alized there was no way I could
continue without Him." "I
started reading the Bible a lot,
searching for answers to why this
had happened to me. After a
while, I became an ordained
Primitive Baptist preacher."
Elder Hollis said, "People ask
me what Primitive Baptists be-
lieve and how it differs from
other Baptist churches. But I
don't feel confident about saying
what other people believe. I just
try to explain what we believe.
And it's the best. All I know is
that God endures."
Elder Hollis, a member of the
Hardee County Cattlemen's As-
sociation, was a five-year mem-
ber of PRECO's Roundup
Committee, and is a new mem-
ber of the PRECO Board of Di-
rectors. He recently returned
from new board member training
in Colorado. He invites anyone
to visit church services on every
third Sunday of the month.
The Payne's Creek Primitive
Baptist Chuich, located five
miles west of Bowling Green, is
named after Payne's Creek,
which was named after Captain
George Payne, who managed the
Kennedy-Darling Trading Post,
which was located at the site of
today's Payne's Creek State His-
toric Site, near Bowling Green.
Captain George Payne was killed
by Indians in 1849. See Spessard
Stone's account of this in his
website, "Cracker Barrel."
Stone is the premier historian
in Hardee County and is one of
the best historians in the state.
Stone is also related to some of
the Albrittons, as his mother,
Anne Hendry Stone, was a
cousin to Clarissa Elizabeth
Hendry, who married Matthew
Alderman, the eldest child of
Civil War Hillsborough County's
James Alderman, one of the four
"Cattle Barons," according to a
poster which once hung in the
old Tampa History Center. Vari-
ous historical accounts list James
Alderman's number of cattle to
be 6,000 to 30,000 head. James
Alderman was also one of 100
people to sign a Hillsborough
County petition to secede from
the Union after Abraham Lincoln
was elected President. His son,
Matthew Alderman, was
Josephine Alderman Albritton's
grandfather. Josephine was Elder
Hollis Jr's, grandmother.
The First Seminole War was
from 1817-18; the Second Semi-
nole War was from 1835-42;
Florida gained statehood in
1845; the Third Seminole War
was from 1855-58. The Ameri-
can Civil War was from 1861-65.
And Payne's Creek PBC was es-
tablished in 1870. Albrittons
have lived in parts of Florida
since at least 1850, as Noah
Samuel Allbritton's name is
listed in the Nassau County, FL
1850 Census. Noah Samuel
came to Hardee County be-
tween 1870 and 1874. Albrittons
have been attending Payne's
Creek Primitive Baptist Church.
since 1870. The faith continues.
The Albritton name comes
from the Albrighton name. There
are two small English villages
named Albrighton, but it's con-
fusing as the Shropshire and
Staffordshire County lines have
changed over the years. On his
webpage, Ernest Howells states
that the Village of Albrighton, in
Shropshire, close to Shrewsbury,
dates back to Saxon times when
Albric or Alberic settled there


after the Battle of Wednesbury in
the year 591. Albric and his fol-
lowers formed a "tun" (not easily
understood in Webster's, but per-
haps a group of people working
together in an area, forming a
"town").
Shrewsbury is the county
town, an old market town, for
Shropshire. Shrewsbury Castle's
oldest parts were built 1066-74,
during the time of William the
Conqueror. The Castle is open to
tourists today and houses spec-
tacular collections. Marauding
Welsh raiders on horseback used
to charge down the Welsh hills
,,,nine miles away to try to sack the
half-timbered, medieval town.
Castle guards would alert the
town.
Up to 1500, Albrighton Manor
was held by the families of Pitch-
ford; Tregoz; de la Warre; Trout-
beck; and Talbot. The Earls of
Shrewsbury were the biggest
landowners in Albrighton.
The Village of Albrighton,
listed in the c1080 Domesday
Book as "Albricston," was
charted in 1303. Albrighton Hall


On right is LaVerne Albritton Knight, church clerk, Payne's
Creek PBC, with her daughter Julie.


Hotel, an 18th century manor
house with 65 acres of gardens,
now called the "Mercure
Shrewsbury Albri-ghton Hall
Hotel and Spa," is two miles
from Shrewsbury. It, has one
large formal dining room and an
excellent chef.
A Roger de Albryghton,
thought, but not proven to be an
ancestor or relation of current
Albrittons, served as a priest of
St. Paul's Cathedral from c1391-
93 and also as Treasurer of St.
Paul's and Controller of the Port
of London in 1407. St. Paul's
where Prince Charles and Lady
Diana Spencer were married in
1981, is one-third smaller now
than it was before the Great Fire
of Long in 1666. In Roger's
time, attendance at Church of
England services was required
but today, the great cathedrals
and churches have smaller atten-
dance. On certain days visitors
can still sit quietly and listen to
the St. Paul's Cathedral Choir
practice. A few years ago Robert
Cline Albritton, Sr., and wife,
Vickie, of Zolfo Springs, enjoyed


a Matins service in the Cathe-
dral. Albrittons can watch and
listen to the Cathedral and West-
minster Abbey Choir perform-
ances on YouTube. Many of the
British ladies still wear lovely
hats but not with the attached
"fascinators" seen at Prince
William's wedding to Catherine
Middleton.
The personal seal of Roger de
Albryghton is now kept in a
room of special collections in the
British Library. Purses of every-
one going in and coming out of
the room are searched. The Seals
are described as "per pale, two
lions rampant, queue fourchee, in
fess, in chief three scallops." The
smooth round outer layer of one
red wax shield in the British li-
brary appears to be worn down
on one side, indicated usage. A
stained-glass church window in
Albrighton Parish Church in
Staffordshire once held a similar
description to de Albryghton's
seal, but the window is ho longer
exists. This lends to the theory
that Roger de Albryghton was
one of the first Albrittons.


T.R.I.M. Shows Tax Rates Down


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
There's good news and bad
news on the tax notices this
year.
Good news includes slight
decreases in the fire and solid
waste assessments, and in some
tax rates.
There was also an overall
decrease of about four percent
on the taxable value of property.
To qualify for a new homestead
assessment, Green Belt agricul-
tural or other exemptions,
forms must be completed at the
Property Appraiser's Office in
March each year. Once the
homestead, veteran's or
widow/widower exemption is
established it continues auto-
matically unless there is anoth-
er change in someone's situa-
tion. The Green Belt exemption
must be filed each year.
The bad news may be that
some people will have an
increased tax value because of
the three percent SAVE OUR
HOMES amendment. Also, any
new construction, addition or
renovation completed last year
can change the assessed value
this year. Assessed value is
determined as of Jan. 1 each
year.
Any property owner's situa-
tion should be clear when he
received the recent T.R.I.M.
(Truth in Millage notice. Any-
one who did not receive one
should contact the Property
Apraiser's Office at 773-2196.
County assessments were
decreased recently. The fire
assessment is re-evaluated
every five years based on actual
costs and went down from $136
to $121.25. The collection por-
tion of the solid waste assess-
ment is tied to the Consumer
Price Index. This could be
reflected on municipal utility
bills. The disposal portion
remained at $70. Residential
collection decreased from
$102.41 to $101.93. There are
similar decreases in the com-
mercial, industrial, institutional,
RE/hotel and the vacant land
assessment, which went down
from 49 cents an acre to 44
cents an acre.
Most taxes were decreased
this year. The exceptions were

the City of Wauchula and the
Indigent Board (called Health
on notices). Both used the roll-
back rate (what amount it
would take to raise the same
amount of money as last year).
Since the roll-back rate was
actually an increase due to the
economic conditions, Wau-
chula's tax rate went from 5.44
to 5.6485 and the Indigent
Board's went from .355 to
.3646.
Another change was that
Basin Boards were dissolved or
merged with the water manage-
ment districts. For Hardee
County, that meant that the
Peace River Basin tax is gone
and the Southwest Florida
Water Management taxes went
from .5597 to .392a.
Zolfo Springs remained at its
millage rate of 9.0, Bowling
Green is still at 7.25 and the
county's is the same 8.554. The
School Board has two parts to
its budget, state-mandated and
local tax. Together, they went
down from 7.845 to 7.694.
All this tax information is
subject to public hearings. All


taxing authorities must have
two public hearings.
The School Board has al-
ready had its first public hear-
ing and will hold the final hear-
ing next Thursday, Sept. 8 at
5:20 p.m. during its regularly
scheduled meeting.
There are three public hear-
ings on Sept. 12. Zolfo Springs
and Wauchula will hold their
initial hearings. Both are at 6
p.m. The Indigent Board first
hearing is at 5:30 p.m. in Room
102, Courthouse Annex I,
Wauchula. The second public
hearing hasn't been listed.
Zolfo Springs will hold its sec-
ond hearing on Sept., 19 at the
start of its regular monthly
meeting. Wauchula will hold its
second hearing on Sept. 27 at 6
p.m.
Bowling Green will have its
first public hearing on Sept. 13
at 6:15 p.m. and its second Sept.
27 at 5:30 p.m.
The county's first public
hearing is Sept. 15 at 6 p.m., the
start of its monthly evening
meeting. The second is Sept.
26.

Local Boxers Busy


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A trio of local boxers are
keeping busy these days.
Dillet Frederick won in a
first-round knockout on
Saturday night, Daniel Lozano
fights on Sept. 9 and Edner
Cherry has a Sept. 23 fight.
All three are in different ven-
ues.
Friday was first on the calen-
dar when he fought Saturday
night at Harborside in Fort
Myers.
The 28-year-old Frederick
faced an equally strong oppo-
nent in Henry Mitchell, 30.
Mitchell came in with 25 previ-
ous bouts, while Frederick, who
recently resumed boxing, has
an 8-4-3 record.
The bout was scheduled for
six rounds, but never got out of
the first. Although Mitchell's
trainer said they had prepared
for the devastating left hook,


"they didn't realize I hit harder
and faster," said Frederick early
this week.
He's training now with
Lozano and his father in their
Bowling Green ring and it
shows.
Frederick first caught
Mitchell with a right uppercut,
following it with a left hook.
The ropes held him up, but after
another hook, uppercut and
hook, the referee stopped the
fight at 1:20 of the first round.
Frederick hopes to have
another fight within two
months. He now works in
Wauchula and has time for the
evening training with the
Lozanos, who were at his
Friday night fight.
He plans to return the favor
by being ringside for Lozano's
title shot on Sept. 9 at the Kers
Winghouse Fight Night 7.
Lozano, undefeated (9-0-0)
looks for the opportunity to add


the WBC USNBC title.
The 21-year-old will fight in
the main event. The fight could
be for a title if a new opponent
is interested. Flyweight divi-
sion,, always a quick-paced
event. The bout is scheduled for
10 rounds.
Cherry, 29, will take his 28-6
(16 KOs) record to Hard Rock
Casino in Hollywood on Sept.
23, challenging Nigerian boxer,
Daniel Attak, a 35-year-old
with a record of 26-7 (9 KOs)
and an awkward southpaw with
a hard punch.
Cherry, who has had an eight-
month layoff, left TKO
Promotions, which was not
keeping him busy. He still trains
with Tony Morgan in Winter
Haven and follows his local
jogging routine around the
streets of Wauchula. He also
hopes to box in Tampa in
November and get back on
track for a title shot.


Fish, Wildlife Rules



Meetings Are Sept. 7-9


The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
will meet Sept. 7-9 in Naples
to discuss a wide range of fish
and wildlife issues.
Sessions start at 8:30 a.m.
all three days, and will be held
at the Naples Grande, 475
Seagate Dr. They are open to
the public.
On Wednesday, Sept. 7,
commissioners will hear staff
reports on the Florida Youth
Conservation Centers Net-
work, the status of Florida
panthers, the Boating Im-
provement Grants program,
revision to the State Wildlife
Action Plan, and the future of
hunting in the state. There also
will be an update on the
National Park Service's effort
to develop a hunt plan for Big
Cypress National Preserve.
On Thursday, Sept. 8, .the
commissioners will discuss a
draft rule for spotted seatrout
that would allow year-round


recreational fishing by remov-
ing the current February closure
in the northern management
area and the November-
December closure in the south-
ern area. The draft rule would
also increase the commercial
harvest season from three to
five months, adding the months
of September and October in
the northeast, southeast and
southwest management areas
and moving the open season to
September through January in
the northwest area.
The FWC also will discuss a
draft rule for sharks that would
prohibit the recreational and
commercial harvest of smooth,
scalloped and great hammer-
heads and tiger sharks. Part of
the discussion will include cre-
ating an angler-education cam-
paign on safe shark-handling
techniques.
In other marine fisheries
action, commissioners will
review and discuss draft rule


amendments to remove two
rules regarding spearing and
underwater lights in Charlotte
County. If the two rules are
repealed, spearing and the use
of lights would be subject to
existing statewide rules.
Commissioners also will dis-
cuss a change to the king mack-
erel landing rules in Collier
County.
The South Atlantic and Gulf
of Mexico fishery management
councils will update the FWC
on issues in their waters.
Staff will report to commis-
sioners about Gulf sturgeon in
the Suwannee River and how
the FWC is working to mini-
mize sturgeon-boater accidents.
The session Friday, Sept. 9,
concerns budget and legislative
matters.
Toward the end of each
meeting day, the public can
comment on items not on the
agenda.

September 1, 2011, The Herald-Advocate 7A


TAX NOTICES ARE OUT!
By now property owners should have received their T.R.I.M.
notices, which were mailed on Aug. 22. This year over 17,000
T.R.I.M. notices were mailed.
"T.R.I.M." is the Truth In Millage notice sent to property own-
ers advising them of what they should expect to pay in property
taxes beginning in November. Each notice provides the parcel or
account number for the property along with a summary of the taxes
paid last year, the taxes to be paid this year if proposed budget
changes are made, and the taxes if no budget change is made.
The taxes to be paid are broken down among each taxing
authority, and the dates and times of the public hearings to adopt
the budgets are also provided.
The market value of real property overall reached its peak in
2008 aqd has declined by 35 percent over the past three years.
Statutory and constitutional mandates such as homestead assess-
ment caps, exemptions and agricultural assessment classifications
create a large difference between the market value and taxable
value of real property. Though the overall market value decreased
by 35 percent, the taxable value of real property has only decreased
by 15.5 percent since 2008.
Most homestead property owners will once again see a
decrease in the Just Value (market value) of their property this year,
but may see slight increases in the taxable value. Current law man-


dates that the assessed value of homestead property shall increase
by three percent or the Consumer Price Index until the assessed
value and the just value are equal. This year the CPI was 1.5 per-
cent, so if the just value is higher than the assessed value, home-
stead property increased.
Though legislation has been proposed to decrease the assessed
value in proportion to decreases in the market value, legislators
have been unsuccessful passing legislation to address this issue.
However, a proposed constitutional amendment will go before vot-
ers in 2012, and if passed, legislators will be granted the ability to
address this issue in the future.
Over 32 percent of properties in Hardee County receive an
agricultural classification or "Greenbelt." The ,.;,ssed value of
these properties is based on the income approach using a five-year
average of income and expenses associated with the type of agri-
culture produced on the property. The just value of agricultural
properties may decrease, but in some cases the assessed value will
increase due to the potential of increased income related to the ag
business.
All non-homestead properties receive the benefit of a 10 per-
cent assessment cap authorized by voters through Amendment 1,
however overall values (commercial, industrial, certain residential)
decreased, therefore the cap will not be applied to most properties.
The benefit of this constitutional amendment will only be evident
in an inclining market.
This year the total tax rate of all taxing authorities decreased
by 2.3 percent. The city of Wauchula and the Indigent Health Care
Board have adopted the roll-back millage rate, which is the millage
rate that will generate the same funding level as the previous year.
The Board of CountyCommissioners, city of Bowling Green and


the town of Zolfo Springs are proposing to levy-the same millage
rates as the prior year. The School Board's overall millage rate
decreased from 7.8450 mills to 7.6040 mills. Southwest Florida
Water Management District is proposing to levy a millage rate of
.3928 (39 cents per $1,000 in value).
This year the governor and Legislature initiated policy
changes to streamline SWFWMD's governmental operations. As a
result of these changes, the Peace River Basin Board was merged
with SWFWMD. The Basin Board was a taxing authority with the
ability to levy taxes in Hardee County, last year at .1827 mills (18
cents per $1,000 in value). The merger has resulted in the elimina-
tion any millage levy from the Peace River Basin. Last year the
combined millage rates of SWFWMD and Peace River Basin
Board was .5597 mills. This year SWFWMD's rate of .3928 mills
is considerably less than both levies the prior year.
When you receive your T.R.I.M. notices, any questions re-
garding the taxes levied may be directed to the appropriate taxing
authority. The notices also include Special Assessment fees that are
imposed by the Board of County Commissioners for fire and waste
services. This year the special assessment fees were reduced.
Questions concerning special assessments should be directed to the
county Office of Management & Budget.
If you have any questions pertaining to the assessed value of
your property, please feel free to contact me at the Property
Appraiser's Office, or for details on the value of your property visit
our website at qpublic.net/hardee/.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
You shall not covet your
neighbor's house. You shall
not covet your neighbor's
wife, or his manservant or
his maidservai.., nis ox or
donkey, or anything that
belongs to your neighbor.
Exodus 20:17 (NIV)
FRIDAY
And He (Jesus) said to them,
"Take heed, and beware of
all covetousness: for a man's
life does' not consist in the
abundance of his posses-
sions. ... For where your
treasure is, there will be your
heart also."
Luke 12:15,34 (RSV)
SATURDAY
You who love every harmful
word, 0 you of deceitful
tongue, surely God will bring
you down to everlasting ruin.
.... The righteous will laugh,
"Here now is the man who
did not make God his strong-
hold but trusted in his wealth
and grew strong by destroy-
ing others."
Psalm 52:4,5,7 (NIV)
SUNDAY
We brought nothing into this
world; for that matter, we
cannot take anything with us
when we leave, but if we
have food or covering we
may rest content. ...The love
of money is the root of all evil
things, and there are some
who, in reaching for it, have
wandered from the faith and
spiked themselves on many
thorny griefs.
/ Timothy 6:7,10 (NEB)
MONDAY
"The people don't know how
to do what is right," says the
Lord. "Their strong buildings
are filled with treasures they
took from others."
Amos 3:10 (NCV)
TUESDAY
But what about the struggles
that exist from among you -
where do you suppose they
come from? Can't you see
that they arise from conflict-
ing passions within yourself?
You crave for something and
don't get it; you are murder-
ously jealous of what others
have got and which you can't
possess yourselves; you
struggle and fight with one
another. You don't get what
you want because you don't
ask God for it.
James 4:1-2 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
So is the man who gets his
wealth by unjust means.
Sooner or later he will lose
his riches and at the end of
his life become a poor old
fool.
Jeremiah 17:11b

High School



Has Changed!


By NANCY SANCHEZ
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your name?
A: Jaine Sanchez.
Q: To you, do you think high
school has changed since you were
there?
A: Yes, high school has changed
very much. For one, when I was in high
school we would get


whoopin's instead of get-
ting A.C.E., like nowa-
days.
Q: What school did


you attend when you were younger?
A: I attended Butler High School in
Butler, Okla.
Q: Do you remember your lan-
guage arts teacher in the ninth
grade?
A: No, I don't exactly remember my
teacher, but I do remember having to
write essays almost every weekend.
Q: Where and when were you
born?
A: I was born in Corwell, Texas, in
Foard County on the day of Oct. 30,
1938. Back when I was born, there
were no zip codes for our mailing
address.
Q: Did you have uniforms in high
school?
A: No, back when I was in high
school, we could wear whatever we
wanted.
Q: At what age did you get your
first job? What was it?
A: My first job was chopping sugar
beets. You would have to pick them off
the ground, and they were like red dots


you could eat. I also worked picking
cotton. I was 12 when I had these two
jobs.
Q: At my age, what would you do
for fun?
A: I would spend my time doing
homework, or playing cards with my
brothers and sisters.
Q: What was your very first car?
A: My very first car was
.., an Oldsmobile. It was a very
ji r' tSdark graycolor.
I "i Q: How did you get to
school?
A: The bus would pick me up at my
house and drop me off at my house. We
didn't have to wait at a bus stop.
Q: Was gas expensive?
A: Not at all. Gas back then was
nothing compared to what it is today. It
was only 45 to 50 cents a gallon.
Q: What was all the possible
transportation?
A: It was all like today. We had cars
and buses.
Q: Were you an only child?
A: I had 12 siblings, eight boys and
four girls.
Q: Did you have good grades in
school?
A: Yes, kind of, I would bring home
B's and C's on my report cards.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

person hypoxic or oxygen-
starved could it be an anxi-
ety attack or a heart attack? An
EKG done at the scene tells
which, and what part of the
heart is involved. Is the blood
sugar.stable, too high or too
low? Is there abdominal pain -
in which quadrant could tell if
it's the spleen, liver, intestinal
blockage, appendicitis or other
conditions. Is there a fracture?
Often, a person may be need to
be stabilized, IVs begun and
medication dispensed while at
the scene or in route to the hos-
pital.
As in an emergency room,
intervention may require more
than two people if it is life-
threating. A person in an ER
choking or in acute respiratory
distress or cardiac arrest may
suddenly find himself surround-
ed by nurses and doctors.
Similarly, such a condition in
the field may need someone to
do an IV., someone to adminis-
ter vasodilators or other med-
ications, provide oxygen, some-
one to be running an EKG.
Mutual aid agreements with
southern Polk County (most
often Fort Meade), Highlands
County far eastern SR 66 and
DeSoto for the south of the
county ensure assistance is just
a call away.
Vehicle accident
Why are both an 'ambulance
and engine are dispatched to an
accident scene. The ambulance
crew immediately goes about
its evaluation of the victims,
determining which may need to
be airlifted out to a trauma cen-,
ter, which need to go to the
local hospital, and which may
decline or not need emergency
treatment.
The engine crew is needed
both as back up medical person-
nel and because of the equip-
ment an engine carries. There
are two types of jaws of life
extrication tools, electric saws,
hydraulic bags and the genera-
tor for a power unit to lift vehi-
cles, lift bags to separate pedals
which may have a person's leg
trapped, and similar tools, as
well as water to hose down a
scene if needed.
FIREFIGHTING
When a fire call comes in, the
closest front-line engine re-
sponds. (An engine is kept at
the Bowling Green station to
meet Insurance Services Office
(ISO) rankings for that commu-
nity.)
Each engine is full of equip-
ment which might be needed,
from self-contained- breathing
air packs to forced entry tools.
There are roofing saws, ladders,
carpet hooks or pike poles to
pull carpet or wallboard inter-
fering with attacking the fire
and thermal imagers. There are
two types of fans, an evacuation
or exhaust fan for vent smoke
out or a positive pressure fan to
push air into the building to
help find the seat of the fire and
knock it down more quickly.
Water supply is always criti-
cal. If there is a nearby fire
hydrant it makes it easier. If it is
in a remote area, the ability to
fight a fire. Each tanker carries
3,000 gallons of water with a
dump/drop valve to deposit it
in a huge portable tank opened
at the scene. That tanker heads
to the nearest resource to get
more water, while the second
tanker is coming with another
load. The tanker shuttle lasts as
long as needed.
Only certain firefighters can
be in a hot zone. Volunteers can
assist, but cannot be in the hot
zone. The fire standards require
a two in-two out response. Thd
first two firefighters on the
scene can begin an attack on the
fire but cannot enter the struc-
ture unless there are two per-
sonnel on the outside to rescue
them if needed. The only excep-
tion to that is if someone tells
them there is a victim in the
building.
Hardee County does not have
a ladder truck. There are ones
available from Bartow and
Avon Park, and more recently,
from DeSoto County.
PROTOCOL
-Other factors affect the serv-
ices of the Fire-Rescue Depart-
ident.
One is the requirements when
a unit or units return to the sta-
tion. Everything has to be
cleaned, reassembled and


checked for proper perform-
ance. For instance, if 1,000 feet
of hose is used, it has to be
drained, cleaned and dried to
prevent mildew rotting it.
Replacement hose is used until
it is dried and ready for reuse.
Nostles have to be cleaned of
Jirt and debris. Air packs and
)ackup air bottles have to
-efilled. Any jaws, spreaders,
hydraulic units have to be
:leaned and dried.


Ambulances have to restock
for anything used, an IV set,
tubing, nasal cannulas, medica-
tions.
Then, there's the paperwork.
Whoever was in charge at the
scene has to complete the EMS
or fire report, who, what,
where, time out, time back in,
amount of staff on scene.
Those reports are reviewed
immediately and may be cri-
tiques on whiteboard later in the
week.

Wildcats Whip Dragons;


Miners Up Next


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats seemed
eager for action as they domi-
nated an overmatched Lake
Placid team Friday night in the
kickoff classic.
A tougher opponent is wait-
ing as the Fort Meade Miners
come to Wildcat Stadium
Friday night for a 7 p.m. show-
down, carrying a three-game
win streak against Hardee.
Look for No. 12, soph quar-
terback Jay Smith, to develop
the Miner offense, using #27
senior Maurice Russell, #28
junior De'Vante Clark and #21
freshman Ryan Fulse to carry
the ball. Russell and classmate
Jamie Willis are linebacker duo
hoping to stop the Wildcat
attack.
Second-year Wildcat head
coach Buddy Martin was


pleased with their performance
Friday night but told his players
after the game to report to prac-
tice Monday ready to work and
prepare for the Miners.
Lake Placid received the
opening kick which Wildcat
junior Octavio Alvarez put deep
into the end zone with the wind
at his back.
Hardee's defense set the tone
early and forced a punt after
three plays.
The offense took over with
good field position at the
Dragon 38-yard line. Four plays
later, senior quarterback Colby
Baker faked a handoff and sped
around the right end untouched
for a 22-yard touchdown with
9:03 left in the first quarter.
A botched point after touch-
down (PAT) attempt resulted in
senior holder Justin Knight
scrambling around the left end

for two points.
Another Alvarez touchback
started Lake Placid at the 20.
Three plays later the Dragons
were punting again.
Senior Deonte Evans caught
the kick at the Lake Placid 37
and returned it to the 18-yard
line but a block-in-the-back
penalty brought it back to the
30.
Three plays later, Baker
again found the end zone, this
time rolling right and running it
in from six yards out. The
Alvarez PAT split the uprights,
making it 15-0 with 4:17 left in
the first quarter.
Hardee forced another three
and out and took over at the
Lake Placid 41 after a short
punt. This Wildcats drive
stalled when junior Aaron
Barker was stopped just short of
,a first down after going for it on
fourth-and-2.
Lake Placid fumbled on the
next play and gave the 'Cats the
ball back in good field position.
Senior Andrew Hooks ripped
off a 15-yard run before fresh-
man fullback Keyonte Holley
busted through the middle for a
17-yard touchdown. Alvarez
tacked on the PAT and the Cats
led 22-0 with 11:52 remaining
in the first half.
Lake Placid took over from
the 28 and went backward from
the start. Wildcat sophomore
defensive end James Greene
picked up where he left off last
year by harassing the opposing
quarterback, and sacking Rob-
ert Walton for a 7-yard loss.
Hardee forced another punt
and took over at the Lake Placid
41 after a 7-yard return by
Evpns.
On the next play Baker was
intercepted by Marty Hickey
who returned it to the Hardee
48-yard line giving Lake Placid

the ball in Wildcat territory for
the first time.
Lake Placid didn't keep the
ball long as Walton threw deep
towards the end zone. Evans
intercepted it and returned it 90
yards for a touchdown but a
questionable block-in-the-back
penalty negated the score.
Hardee took over at its own 20-
yard line as a result of the
penalty.
After being flagged for inten-
tional grounding, the offense
faced a third-and-19.
Baker dropped back and
threw deep under pressure for
tight end Carter Lambert the
ball came up short and was
intercepted by Marquavian
Copeland.
The Dragons took over at the
Hardee 30. Quickly facing a
fourth-and-10, Lake Placid
tried a fake punt but soph
Keyon Brown was ready and
stopped the play after a 2-yard
gain forcing a turnover on
downs.
The Wildcats took over from
their 29-yard line with 4:35 left
in the half. Brown ripped off a
19-yard run and punished the
safety coming up to make the
tackle, sending his helmet
rolling across the grass from the
collision.
Six plays later Holley took
the ball down to the 2-yard line
with a 20-yard run and capped
the drive off on the next play
with a plunge up the middle.
The Alvarez PAT put the
Wildcats up 29-0 with a minute
left in the half.
The Wildcats recovered a
fumbled snap and gave the ball
back on the next play after
Brown fumbled.
Adson Delhomme brought
the half to an end by sacking
Walton for a 6-yard loss.
Hardee did not allow Lake
Placid a first down during the
first half.
Wildcat senior Dalton Rabon
fielded the second-half kickoff
at the 30-yard line and returned
it 11 yards. The 'Cats faced a
third-and-5 when Baker found
Evans for a 19-yard gain. Lake
Placid penalties pushed the ball


to the Dragons' 25.
Brown ran up the middle for
18 yards while pulling a few
Dragon defenders along for a
ride. On the next play, Brown
finished the drive with a 7-yard
touchdown run. A bad snap
caused Alvarez to be tackled
during the PAT attempt but
Hardee now led 35-0.
Hardee forced another punt
and took over at its own 44-
yard line with 6:03 left in the
third quarter. On the third play
of the drive Baker lost the ball
and Lake Placid recovered even
though Baker appeared to be
down.
Lake Placid made its first,
first down for the game with
4:15 to go in the third. The
drive stalled after Knight came
on a safety blitz and sacked


Walton.
Hardee took over at its 30-
yard line. Barker started the
drive with a 17-yard run and
ended it two plays later when he
outran the Dragon defense and
raced 51 yards for the touch-
down. Alvarez tacked on the
PAT and the Wildcats led 42-0
with 10:42 left in the game.
A running clock was used
and the Dragons made it down
to thel-yard line as the game
neared the end.
The 'Cats stood strong and
denied the end zone as Uvaldo
Sanchez and the rest of the
defense threw the Lake Placid
running back for a loss three
plays in a row.
The Dragons kicked a 32-
yard field goal on the last play
of the game making it 42-3.

Hardee animal Rescue Team
Would Like to Thank
Tina Derringer and her family for
their help in trapping and releasing feral
cats in Bowling Green. To date, the Der-
ringer family has trapped 20 feral cats,
which now have been spayed or
neutered and released to their natural
environment. This sterilization program
has prevented the birth of an
additional 240 kittens, from these 20 cats,
in just one year's time.
Each of these kittens,
had they been born, also
would have continued to
reproduce more kittens -
creating an endless cycle
of feral cats.

PRECo Wins Men's Tourney Volleyball Girls Take The Court


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald Advocate
Between the storms, between
everything else going up, the
2011 Men's Community
League finished its regular sea-
'son and spent a Friday night
and Saturday finishing up with
the post-season tournament.
When the dust settled,
Gilliard Fill Dirt's Dirty Dozen
took the regular season title,
ending with a 13-1 season, its
only loss to Mosaic #2. The
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive Inc.'s Legion of Doom
came in second with an 11-3
record and the Mosaic #1
Regulators was third at 10-4.
Finishing up the regular sea-
son standings were Mosaic #2,
TNT-Nemesis, Los Diablos, III
Ranches and Team Santarlas.
On to the post-season tourna-
ment, held Aug. 19-20, with
Gilliard electing not to partici-
pate.
The other teams faded one by
one, leaving III Ranches, the
tournament surprise squad,
PRECo and Mosaic I.
In the first encounter between
PRECo and Mosaic I, PRECo
won 24-18.
Rodger Brutus bagged a pair
of homers and Brian Pohl added
another for PRECo. Billy Alexy
rounded the bases four times on
three hits and a walk. Eleven
players scored at least one run.


Mosaic countered with a pair
of homers by Weston Johnson
and solo shots by Mike Carte
and Jason Johnson. Ten players
each scored from one to four
times.
Mosaic I then dropped to the
loser's bracket to take on the
last standing team, III Ranches.
Mosaic I won 20-5.
Carte homered and Austin
Helms banged a pair of triples
for Mosaic I. Carte and Weston
Johnson each had four hits,
Johnson scoring four times and
Carte three. Carte nearly hit for
the cycle with his homer, a
triple and a pair of doubles.
Mike Dixon homered and dou-
bled twice for three trips to h
ome plate. Alan Tubbs and
Travis Tubbs each also home-
red.
For III Ranches, Robert
Fussell picked up a trio of RBIs
with a double and single. Bucky
Leonard circled the bases twice.
Other players contributing to
the good playoff series were
Mark McGee, Cody Gullat,
Weston Palmer, Doyle Tyson,
Bobby Caraway, Keith Revell,
Dale Carlton, Brett Johnson,
Lamar Smith, Will Tyson,
Justin Painter and Johnny
Allison.
Mosaic I challenged PRECo
again and won 31-14.
Helms homered twice, dou-
bled twice and walked twice to


score six runs for Mosaic I.,
Carte and John Roberson each
rounded the bases four times.
Roberson and Travis Tubbs
each picked up five RBIs.
Lewis Martin chipped in with
five hits. Every players scored
at least once.
Billy Alexy, Matt P. and
Dawson Crawford homered for
PRECo. Matt P. was the only ,
triple-tally batter, and Alexy the
only three-hit batter.
With each team with only one
loss, it came down to the cham-
pionship game between them, a
real thriller, with PRECo pre-
vailing 20-18.
Matt P. hit the only homered
for PRECo, but Brutus, Van
Crawford, Mikey Driskell and
Junior each tripled. Brutus and
Brian Pohl each put three runs
on the board. Others scoring
included Junior, Driskell, Matt
P., Josh C., Vent Crawford,
Dawson Crawford, Van Craw-
ford, Billy Alexy and Brian
Alexy.
Weston Johnson and Martin
each drilled a grand slam for
Mosaic I. Helms also homered.
Weston Johnson put five runs
on the board and Jason Johnson
added four more. Others con-
tributing hits and scores were
Roberson, Dixon, Jerry Albrit-
ton, Travis Tubbs, Alan Tubbs
and Carte.

Todays Times
The job rating of many politicains is somewhat low, but with many,
because of the problems in the world, the overall approval rating of
the Creator is even lower. As it was in the days of Noah, after more
than a century of warning, only eight people entered the ark before
the door was forever locked for the rest. During the days when
Jesus walked the Earth, most people were so deluded by the false
teachings of popular religious leaders, that they did not recognize
their Creator and Savior. And today, even with the increase of life
saving Knowledge (Daniel 12:4), it is a wonder with great amaze-
ment that so many are living in a false sense of security when the
enactment of the mark of the beast is fast approaching. As soon as
the protection, established in the laws of the land, against religious
persecution is redefined, many people now know that a weekly day
of rest and religious worship will be legislated and enforced in an
effort to appease God and promote general welfare. This will be the
last act of fallen humanity in the establishment of righteousness by
the works of mankind rather than the acceptance of the righteous-
ness and salvation imputed and imparted by the Saviour. At various
times in history, our Maker instituted definite and deciding tests of
loyalty in which people's decisions "seal" their ultimate destiny.

School is back. OK, you crazy drivers, remember to slow
down at all school crossings. A word to all students: I want you to
enjoy your school days. Make memories and make them count.
Hardee Graduate Makes The Band
One day I told my son, ;Why don't you become a drummer?
I believe you would be good at it." I remember his response like it
was yesterday, "Me, a drummer? Mom, why would I want to be a
drummer?"
Now my son, Christopher .-quivel, age 26, is the drummer for
the alternative metal band Dark Summer. They are recording the
finishing touches to a new album, "Hollow Diary." Christopher
lives in Lakeland and is employed with Mosaic. He is a 2003
Hardee Senior High School graduate.
He loved drumming so much that playing and touring with a
band became a passion and a dream. Well, that dream recently
came true with a one-year touring contract. Opportunity only
knocks once, so the group, whose three other members live in the
Lakeland and Davenport areas, will venture out on the open road.
The tour route is in the planning.
Who knows where this group will journey to, but you can fol-
low their tracks at dark-summer.com.
Vacation Time
Lupe and Pauline Ochoa enjoyed a long-needed vacation to
the mountains of Tennessee with their family. Pauline is employed
at Heartland Pharmacy.
Time To Move On
Danielle Yolanda Ochoa was given a house-warming party by
her aunt, Rosa Llanas. Danielle is moving to Orlando to attend col-
lege there. I loved shopping for a gift at Wal Mart, where she did
a gift registry. It made it so much easier than trying to guess what
she would like.
Birthdays
Happy birthday to Linda Valdez, Aug. 24. She is employed at
Bowling Green Elementary School and as a hairdresser at Guille's.
Christine Wells had a birthday on Aug. 23. Christine works for
Royal's Furniture in Sebring.

Holy Child, First Christian Split Ladies Titles


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of Th'e Herald-Advocate
First Christian came on at the
last and made a battle of it.
Holy Child Catholic outlasted
last game efforts and won the
regular season for the 2011
Women's Church Softball
League, with an 11-2 record,
threatened late by First
Christian and First Methodist
Church/Bowling Green Baptist
Church, which both finished at
10-3.
Behind them were San
Alfonso's Chapel, Florida's
First Assembly of God, St.
Michael Catholic, New Hope
Baptist and New Vision
Worship Center.
But when it came down to the
single-elimination tournament,
it was First Christian which
turned the tables in a dramatic
16-15 win over Holy Child in
the thrilling championship
game on Aug. 11.
The tournament began with
San Alfonso downing First
Assembly 17-7 on Field 3,
while First Methodist/Bowling
Green won 18-7 over St.
Michael on Field 4.
For San Alfonso, Kourtney
Henderson and Penny McGuire
each put three runs on the
board. Gloria Solis, Leigh,
Taylor Hulsey and Vanessa
added two apiece.
Bonnie Simpson and Meagan
Smith each had twin tallies to
lead First Assembly. Teresa
Gaitan, Ally Simpson and
Peyton Hernandez chipped in
with a run apiece. Vanessa
Hernandez, Melinda Tabby
Prieto, Jamie Buckley and
Raquel Taylor contributed to
the game.
For the Methodists/Baptists,
it was Brittany C. and Misty
with ;three trips around the
bases apiece. Diane Brummett,
Jennifer Bryant, Kirbi and
Danielle put a pair of runs
apiece in the book and Heather


Refoure, Shauntee Hines and
Tiffany added a run apiece.
Priscilla Silva, Brooke and
Blanca each rounded the bases
twice for St. Michael. Delida
added the final run. Others join-
ing in were Aurora Santoyo,
Lori Dees, Rishonea Lampley,
Breanna Irene and Naomi.
In round two, First Christian
downed San Alfonso 20-9 on
Field, 3, while Holy Child took
care of First Methodist/First
Baptist 22-10 on Field 4.
Chelsey topped First Chris-
tian with four trips around the
bases. Ketus and Christina
added three runs apiece and
Sami Jo Morgan, Chelsea and
Stacy added a pair each.
Solis, Husley and Sasha
Castanon each scored twice for
San Alfonso. Meagan Hender-
son, Leigh, Stephanie, Vanessa
and Honesty each put a run on
the board. Kourtney Henderson,
Aleeza and McGuire added to
the game.
For Holy Child, it was Selina
Olmos, Lacy Lambeth and Zita
McBride coming around to
score three times each. Maggie
Olvera, Karina Fernandez,
Lucy Garcia and Susana
Castillo added twin tallies and
Sabrina Hernandez, Darlene
Tattis, Kristina Garcia, Vira and
Liberty Lozano each added a
run.
Refoure, Brummett, Hines
and Jeanne each put two runs
on the board for First Metho-
dist/Bowling Green Baptist.
Bryant and Tiffany each
touched home once. Others fin-
ishing up were Brittany, Emma
Marshall, Kim Tyson, Halley,
Misty and Kirbi.
That left First Christian and
Holy Child to battle it out for
the tournament championship.
Holy Child started out like a
house afire. Sabrina Hernan-
dez, Maggie Olvera, Darlene
Tattis, Kristina Garcia, Karina
Fernandez, Lucy Garcia, Rosa


Villegas and Liberty Lozano
put runs on the board in the top
of the first inning to take a 8-0
lead. First Christian answered
with a Sami Jo Morgan hit.
Holy Child got a solo score,
by Kristina Garcia, to start the
second inning, while First
Christian put up four runs to cut
the lead to 9-5. Chelsea Owens,
Amy Franks, Ketus and Josey
puts hits and runs together to
narrow the gap.
It was a scoreless third inning
for Holy Child, while First
Christian added a trio of tallies
by Brittany Hines, Joy Morgan
and Owens to make it a 9-8
game.
Holy Child got an insurance
run in the top of the fourth
inning, with Fernandez riding
homes on hits by Villegas and
Vita. First Christian forged in
front with another trio of scores,
by Sandy Driskell, Sami Jo
Morgan and Stephanie Rob-
erson. First Christian led 11-10.
Holding Holy Child scoreless
in the fifth, First Christian was
also kept off the board.
It was three up, three down
for Holy Child in- the sixth,
while First Christian picked up
a Roberson run. It was 12-10.
Holy Child bounded back in
the top of the seventh, and final,
inning, Villegas, Vita, Lozano,
Olmos and Castillo all circled
the bases. Olvera was left on
base when the third out oc-
curred. Holy Child had a 15-1.2
advantage.
First Christian wouldn't give
in. Ketus scored. With one
down, Lori Crouse and Chris-
tina scored to make it a 15-15
game.
When Sami Jo Morgan got
aboard and moved around the
bases on hits by Roberson,
Hines and Joy Morgan, it forced
Sami Jo to home plate with the
winning run. First Christian
took the tournament title in a
16-15 game.


If a mother respects both herself and her child from his very first day onward, she will
never need to teach him respect for others.

I think it must somewhere be written that the virtues of mothers shall be visited on
their children, as well as the sins of their fathers.
-Charles Dickens
My mother gave me a bumblebee pin when I started work. She said: "Aero-dynamical-
ly, bees shouldn't be able to fly. But they do. Remember that."

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, 0 Lamb of God, I come."


In the late 19th century and
earlier years of the 20th
century,when gramo-
phones or phonographs
amplified the sound
through large horns,
woolen socks were often
stuffed in them to cut down
the noise; hence the
phrase "put a sock in it."


Have you ever worried about losing
your job, or facing a serious illness, or
making a terrible mistake? If you have faced
and survived any these fears then you are likely
thankful for each and every day you have your
job, your health, and your talents. Remember to
thank God for these things as well. Also, remember
to pray for those who are less fortunate. Praise
God at His House this and every week for' all your
blessings.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football Fans, it is finally week one of college football.
Most games are between the big boys warming up on the teams
looking for a good payout but there are a few intriguing match-ups
in this opening week. Boise St. playing Georgia in Atlanta and
Oregon and LSU going at it in Arlington, Texas highlight that cat-
egory. The "Friends of Coal Bowl" pits West Virginia against
instate rival Marshall in Morgantown. East Carolina will take on
Steve Spurrier's Gamecocks in Charlotte, North Carolina.
It's been quiet on the NCAA investigations into several teams,
especially Miami .There may be some Canes ineligible to play due
to the current scandal. Ohio St. opens their typical "brutal "sched-
ule (insert sarcastic smile) against Akron. If the Zips don't get them
maybe the NCAA will. LSU will have a couple players, including
QB Jordan Jefferson, out due to a bar room fight.
On the high school scene, the Hardee Wildcats looked good in
their 42-3 romp over the Lake Placid Dragons. The stifling defense
limited the Dragons to one first down when the first string was on
the field. The offense moved the ball at will on the ground.
Since the NFL will not be in regular season play this weekend,
the Swami will only pick 25 college match-ups for this Labor Day
Kickoff. So, let's get to this week's Bill 0' Fare. ...
1. FAU at Florida The Owls have tried to make a spot for
themselves under retired coach Howard Schnellenberger with
some success. This season they could slip back after opening with
Florida, Michigan St. and Auburn. The Gators should have no
problem winning. The test is to see where they are under a new
staff. UF 59 FAU 10.
2. UL-Monroe at FSU The WarHawks return 14 starters
from a 5-7 team but don't look for any upset here. This is FSU not
Virginia Tech. Just the first of two tune-ups for the Oklahoma
game. FSU 56 UL-Monroe 13.
3. Marshall at West Virginia Last year Marshall blew a 21-
6 lead in the fourth quarter and then missed a field goal in overtime
losing to WVU 24-21. New head coach Dana Holgorsen is known
for his prolific offenses at Houston and Oklahoma St. He has an
All-American Candidate at QB and a receiving corps second to
none in the nation. Marshall will be led by a true frosh QB Rakeem
Cato from Miami Central High. Defense should not be overlooked
as All-American DEs Vinnie Curry of Marshall and Bruce Irvin of
WVU should shine also. West Virginia 41 Marshall 17.
4. Miami at Maryland New head coach Randy Edsall has
the ACC's top QB in Danny O'Brien and a tough defense with 7
starters back from an 8-4 team. The Terps probably won't beat the
Canes as bad as the NCAA will but look for a 38-13 final for
Maryland.
5. Appalachian St. at Virginia Tech Could Appy St. pull off
another like James Madison last year? It would be nice but not like-
ly. They did beat Michigan in the "Big House" though. Have you
seen the schedule for the VPI "Chokies"? Marshall and Clemson
are the toughest test they have. No wonder they win in the ACC.
VPI 35 ASU 17.
6. USF at Notre Dame- GGGOOOOO Bulls USF needs this
win to set itself up for a run in 2011. The perennially overrated Irish
do have 16 starters back and have been predicted to go 10-2 in
2011. Look for 7-5 against an easy schedule with a few exceptions.
It will be interesting to see if the Irish do join a conference with the
next shift coming. They are members of the Big East in all sports
except football. USF 35 Notre Dame 33.
7. Wake Forrest at Syracuse Orangemen began a turn-
around with Doug Marone at the helm. 8-5 with a bowl win over
Big 12 Kansas St was impressive. They do have plenty back to
defeat an ACC team at home. Syracuse 30 Wake Forrest 14.
8. Akron at Ohio St. Turmoil and scandal plague this sea-
son with the NCAA ready to drop the hammer on the Buckeyes.


Coming off an 0-12 season thanks to forfeits, the Buckeyes' Sept.
17 showdown with Miami in the "Death Penalty Bowl" should
draw a large audience. Ohio ST. 45 Akron 7.
9. UT Chattanooga at Nebraska Cornhuskers are the fav-
orites in their new home, the Big 10 After playing second fiddle
to Oklahoma and Texas in the Big 12, they jumped to play in a
weak conference they will dominate for years. Nebraska 60 UT
Chatt 7.
10. Western Michigan at Michigan Ann Arbor finally can
look forward to football again with Brady Hoke coming to replace
their former savior, Rich Rodriguez. Hoke is really a "Michigan
Man "and a successful coach as well. Look for things to return to
normal in Ann Arbor. Michigan 44 Western Michigan 13.
11. Tulsa at Oklahoma Are the Sooners the number one
team? History has them fall on their faces too many times to crown
them just yet. Landry Jones is a top flight QB in a highly potent
offense. Let's see them play FSU before we crown "numero uno"
though. That game is one of 2011 's most anticipated. Oklahoma 48
Tulsa 20.
12. Rice at Texas Longhorns are not a top team in 2011 but
still have enough to overcome the passing attack of the Rice Owls.
Texas 37 Rice 17.
13. SMU at Texas A&M SEC Bound Aggies? They should
have no trouble in their opener against the Ponies from CUSA.
Texas A&M 46 SMU 14.
14. East Carolina at South Carolina Good move playing
this one in Charlotte. Makes it special and the Queen City gets
some college spotlight. The Pirates from CUSA are good but the
Ole Ball Coach should prevail. USC 35 ECU 17.
15. Charleston Southern at UCF Knights have lost 19 sen-
iors from the CUSA Champs in 2011. No problem in the opener
though. UCF 31 CSU 10.
16. TCU at Baylor TCU is scheduled to begin play in the
Big East in 2012. Somehow, it would look to make more sense with
conference realignment coming to have them replace Texas A&M
in the Big 12. Gary Patterson has turned the Horned Frogs into a
major player after a 13-0 2010 season. TCU 34 Baylor 10.
17. Oregon and LSU in Arlington, Texas. A National Game
that shouldhave one of the highest viewing ratings this season. The
Ducks are notimmune to the NCAA though. They too are being
investigated. Oregon 27 LSU 24.
18. Kent St at Alabama Tide will Roll in the opener.
Alabama 58 Kent St. 10.
19. Boise St. and Georgia in Atlanta. The Dawgs have been
picked by some publications to win the SEC East. Bold prediction
for sure. Aaron Murray is solid. The kicking game is the best in col-
lege football. The jury is out on UGA in 2011. However, if the
Dawgs lose this one and then to Spurrier's Gamecocks in two
weeks, look for Mark Richt on the hot seat early. Boise St. 36 UGA
33.
20. Montana at Tennessee Once a power in 1-AA, the
Grizzlies should be an interesting opener in Knoxville. Tennessee
34 Montana 13.
21. Elon at Vanderbilt- Commodores should win 3 games in
2011. This is one of them. They are, as usual, the Homecoming
Game for Florida. Vandy 31 Elon 13.
22. Memphis at Mississippi St. The Bulldogs under Dan
Mullen are making a presence in the SEC. This opener should be
a blow out. MSU 56 Memphis 7.
23. Missouri St at Arkansas Don't overlook the Hogs in the
SEC West. They could be a surprise in 2011. Arkansas 47 Missouri
St. 12.
24. BYU at Ole Miss Houston Nutt has picked West
Virginia transfer Barry Brunetti as the starting QB. They could
have a winning season but will not challenge for the SEC top spot.
Mississippi 33 BYU 27.
25. Utah St. at Auburn Don't look for a back-to-back
National Championship run. Auburn will be lucky to have a win-
ning season in 2011. This game will be a win though as will
Samford and Florida Atlantic. Auburn 40 Utah St. 17.

After you've done a thing the same way for two years,
look it over carefully. After five years, look at it with sus-
picion. And after 10 years, throw it away and start all
over.

STOP JUNK MAIL & PREVENT MAIL FRAUD
Dear Savvy Senior,
How can I reduce the junk mail my elderly mother gets? She
gets around 25 pieces of junk mail each day, and I just discovered
that she's given away nearly $2,000 over the past year to many of
the sleazy groups that mail her this junk. How can I stop this?
Frustrated Daughter

Dear Frustrated,
Millions of seniors get bombarded with unwanted junk mail
these days, including mail fraud schemes that you and your mom
need to be particularly leery of. Here's what you can do to help.

Senior Alert
While junk mail comes in many different forms -'credit card
applications, sweepstakes entries, magazine offers, coupon mail-
ers, donation requests, political fliers, catalogs the type all sen-
iors need to beware of is mail fraud. This is the junkiest of junk
mail. It comes from con artists who are only trying to take your
money.
Mail fraud can be tricky to detect because there are many dif-
ferent types of schemes out there that may seem legitimate. Some
of the most common mail scams targeting seniors today are fake
by checks, phony sweepstakes, foreign lotteries, free prize or vacation
a scams, donation requests from charities or government agencies
n, that don't exist, get-rich chain letters, work-at-home schemes or
a inheritance and investment scams.
if If your mom is getting any type of junk mail that is asking for
Ill, money in exchange for free gifts or winnings, or if she's receiving

so checks that require her to wire money, she needs to call the U.S.
et, Postal Inspector Service at 877-876-2455 and report it, and then
73, throw it away.
nd Unfortunately, once a person gets on these mail fraud mailing
of lists it's very difficult to get off. That's because these criminals reg-
on ularly trade and sell mailing lists of people who they believe to be
sly
Vlly susceptible to fraud.
he Knowing this, a good first step to help protect your mom is to
nt. alert her to the different kinds of mail fraud and what to watch for.
The Postal Inspection Service offers some great publications and
11 videos (see postalinspectors.uspis.gov) that can help with this.
Another option is to see if your mom would be willing to let you
cer sort her mail before she opens it so you can weed out the junk. You
3rk may want to have the post office forward her mail directly to you
to ensure this.
1c If your mom feels compelled to donate to certain charities, ask
HE her to let you check them out to make sure they're legitimate. You
can do this through your state attorney general's office or at chari-
ty watchdog sites like charitywatch.org, give.org and 6haritynavi-
gator.org.
Reduce Junk Mail
While scam artists aren't likely to take your mom's name off
EZ, their mailing lists, most legitimate mail-order businesses will.
To do this, start with the Direct Marketing Association which
offers a consumer opt-out service at dmachoice.org. This won't
eliminate all her junk mail, but it will'idiuce it. The opt-out serv-:
ice is free if you register online, or $1 by mail.
Then, to put a stop to the credit card and insurance offers she
/ gets, call the consumer credit reporting industry opt-out service at
888-567-8688 and follow the automated prompts to opt her out for
either five years or permanently. Be prepared to give her Social
Security number and date of birth. You can also do this online at
optoutprescreen.com. If you choose the permanent opt-out, you'll
have to send a form in the mail.
an Some other resources that can help are the National Do Not
ou Call Registry (donotcall.gov, 888-382-1222) which will cut down
ve on your mom's telemarketing calls. And catalogchoice.org is a free
;,if service that lets you opt her out of the unwanted catalogs she
OS
is receives.
FL, Savvy Tip
ber If you don't want to hassle with stopping the junk mail your-
nal self, you can hire a private company (like 41pounds.org or stopthe-
PO junkmail.com) to do it for you for a small fee.

DOGS!
I like dogs, well ... some dogs but not yappers!
Their high-pitched barking, drives me up the wall!
I like BIG DOGS, the kind you saddle up...
Riding the open range, crack in the whip!...

Hear' in the deep-throated barks, pounding hooves!
The long tail swish in the air; REAL DOG'S FLAIR!
A wet nose, heavy breathing, long-pink-tongue!
Yes-sir-ree! My kind of dog, a real friend!

Then there's the short guy, bow-legged with big head
One that drools and slobbers over everything
Chases sticks, then won't give them back... LOCK DOWN!
Yes-sir-ree! My kind of dog, a real friend

Then always the restl'in match, dog against man!
Head to head, hair to hair, roll'in good times!
Oh I miss them so! ...Gone to "happy" hunting grounds.
True friends through all joys and strife throughout life.

Wagging tail, rough-wet licks on hands and face!
A friend, a buddy, heart's special place ...

-Thomas W. Graham
