SERIOUS SPIRIT!


Anyone who ever graduated from Hardee High School knows that the week the Hardee
Wildcat football team plays the DeSoto Bulldogs is traditionally known as "Spirit Week."
To this day, that tradition continues. This week, leading up to the game that represents
the oldest-running rivalry in the state, Wildcats are showing their spirit with a variety of
dress-up days. On campus for Tacky Tuesday were fuzzy shoes, crazy hats, mismatched
clothes and more. Here, Aleck Gonzalez takes his show of spirit seriously. Look for more
photos of campus clowning in next week's edition.


It's Time To 'Fall



Back To Nature'

See Lions & Tigers & Bears ... For Free


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Lions, tigers and bears, oh
my!
Well, maybe except the lions.
The Hardee County Wildlife
Refuge, in conjunction with
Hardee County Friends of the
Parks, will be hosting its second
annual "Fall Back To Nature"
event on Saturday.
Admission is free.
This event began as a way to
give back to the community and
help residents find out more
about nature. It also gives peo-


pie the opportunity to learn
about the animals in the refuge
as well as to interact with other
animals which will be brought
in by exhibitors.
"It is a fun and educational
family day," says refuge
Director Carmen Soles. "People
can get an appreciation of
nature without having to travel
long distances to see these
beautiful animals."
Animals living at the refuge
include raccoons, foxes, cou-
gars, bobcats, white-tail deer,
ostriches, tortoises, bears, otters


Guard Your Gold!

Thieves Prey On Quick Cash


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Laptops, desktops, plasmas
and DVDs?
Uh, not so much.
Toda) s thieves target gold,
jewelry and coins.
The reason is simple, accord-
ing to Wauchula Police Chief
Bill Beattie: quick cash.
Beattie would know, as his
officers recently recovered
thousands of dollars' worth of
silver and collectible coins
along with gold jewelry stolen
from a local resident's apart-
ment while he was at work.
Gold, silver and coins are
easily sold for cash at a variety
of "We Buy Gold!" businesses
here and everywhere, Beattie
notes. This time, the buyer. was
local, and he properly recorded
the identification, signature and
fingerprint of the seller.
That man, it turns out, had
stolen the items from Apt. I at
212 S. Seventh Ave. that very
morning and had sold them to
the buyer by a few minutes after
noon. He scored a hefty amounit
of cash, too, Beattie says, but he
also earned an arrest warrant.
The suspect has not yet been
jailed. But he will be, the chief


promises.
Regardless, Beattie cautions
all residents, "Protect your
gold!"
Says Beattie, "The crooks are
not carrying away TVs and
game boxes as much anymore,
they're looking for gold. If they
can find it, they'll take it and
run."
The new focus on gold, jew-
elry and coins comes from the
"We Buy Gold!" phenomenon
found everywhere. Thieves see
an opportunity to steal a small
item for a big, and fast, reward.
Beattie sees a loss of family
history and treasures.
"The businesses only have to
hold the items a minimal
amount of time, and then they
can melt it, and poof your
heirloom is gone," says Beattie.
"The stones are gone, the
engravings are gone, the legiti-
macy of evidence is gone."
Quick detective work brought
a happy ending for the man in
Apt. 1.
But, to others, Beattie advis-
es, "Put your gold, your jewelry
in a vault, in a safety deposit
box, in a safe place. Make
things hard to find and get at.
See GOLD 2A


and alligators. All of these ani-
mals are at the refuge and can-
not be released back into the
wild due to medical conditions
or because they are not capable
of surviving in the wild any-
more.

A Dry


Winter?


Really?
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Blame it on La Nina.
Ask Jimmy Parker how the
recent flooding rains affected
his crops. Ask those living in
low-lying areas about difficul-
ties getting out and about dur-
ing recent flooding. Check out
the mosquito control warnings
issued in mid-October.
But, barely two weeks later,
Southwest Florida Water
Management District has con-
tinued water restrictions
through Feb. 29, 2012.
"The region's public water
supplies are in relatively good
shape, but caution is in order,"
said Lori Sorensen, the
SWFWMD's demand manager.
"There were improvements in
October, but we are expecting a
drier-than-normal winter due to
the La Nina weather pattern,"
she continued.
Phase I water shortage con-
servation measures limit lawn
and landscape watering to a
two-day-per-week schedule. On
their assigned days, residents
may water only before 10 a.m.
and after 4 p.m.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The Hardee High School class reunions of the 1950s and
1960s over the weekend were very successful. Many friendships
were renewed and updated. Lives were celebrated, and those who
had passed away were fondly remembered.

The Wildcats Friday night. succeededbin a must-win game
against Bradenton Southeast 21-19 to continue hopes for a playoff
berth. The gridiron gang hosts DeSoto Friday at 7 p.m. in another
important district game, while Southeast welcomes Palmetto in
another big game.
A Hardee win/Southeast loss would make Hardee district run-
ner-up. A Hardee win/Southeast win would result in a three-way
playoff Monday night at Hardee Wildcat Stadium.

The world population has reached 7 billion. China has 1.34
billion people. India has 1.2 billion. The U.S. has 307 million.
The world had 4 billion people in 1974, 5 billion in 1987 and
6 billion in 1998, reported Jon Gambrell of Associated Press in the
Lakeland Ledger Nov. 1. This points to the value of food produc-
tion and distribution. Agriculture and fertilizer are important.

John Chambliss of the Ledger Oct. 30 reported in 2010 there
were 103 million U.S. employees in the private sector and 21 mil-
lion people working for the government (public sector).
For the first time, in 2009, there were more union members in
government jobs (7.6 million) than in private company jobs (7.1
million). In recent years union membership among public sector
workers has grown while private company union membership has
declined. Also for the first time public sector employees are mak-
ing more money than typical private sector employees. As a result
the tax burden has increased a lot over recent years.

There have been two recent grassroots political movements in
the U.S.
The TEA Party is affiliated with the Republican Party and
stands for less government and less taxes. The more recent Occupy
Wall Street movement protests the rich getting richer and political
corruption and has gone worldwide. The OWS would be more
aligned with the Democratic party than the GOP.

The state prison west of Fort Green in Hardee County was one
of 29 south Florida prisons that would be privatized and supposed-
ly save 7 percent in annual operating costs. This was scheduled for
Jan. 1, 2012, but the matter is now tied up in court.
The Associated Press reported nearly 2,000 union workers
could lose their jobs if privatization occurs. Estimated savings is
$22 million, according to legislative leaders, but the Police
Benevolent Association, which represents prison guards, disputes
those figures. A big question also would be how will prisoners be
treated, fed, housed, trained, and rehabilitated.

Lori Montgomery of the Washington Post reported Oct. 31 that
currently, for the first time, benefits paid by Social Security are
more than the taxes being collected.
Congress and President Obama need to work together to
quickly correct and solve this.disturbing situation. Partisan politics'
will continue and worsen the issue.

There are people so addicted to exaggeration they can't
tell the truth without lying.
-Josh Billings


Register Now For Annual


'Hoofin' It Off Main' Ride


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Nothing sounds better than
spending your day going
through forested wilderness,
looking at beautiful scenery and
crossing streams.
Thanks to the second annual
trail ride known as Hoofin' It
Off Main, you will get a chance
to do all of that while riding
your favorite horse.
This event was started as a
way to raise money for Main
Street Wauchula Inc. The com-
mittee planning the event want-
ed to start something different -
something off Main Street to
attract more people and get
them outdoors to enjoy a day of
horseback riding.


The ride will begin Saturday,
Nov. 12, at 9 a.m. and last about
2-1/2 hours, with a break in
between for the horses to rest.
Participants must bring their
own horses. A horse will not be
provided. A current and original
negative coggins paper also is
required.
After the ride there will be a
barbecue lunch. At that time,
awards will be hainled out to
recognize riders for such honors
as Elmer, Gabby, Glam and Mr.
Ed.
Commemorative T-shirt are
available for the event. To
insure the proper size, be sure to
order by tomorrow (Friday).
To be able to attend this
event, riders must register by


this coming Wednesday. After
that, there is a late fee. To get a
registration form, go to online
to mainstreetwauchula.com.
For any questions, call 767-
0330.
The ride will be at CF
Industries' reclaimed North
Pasture. To get there from U.S.
17, travel west on State Road
62, turn right onto County Road
663. and then follow the signs
to CF Industries on the left.
Director Jessica Newman
hopes this year will bring more
riders, and that in time Hoofin'
It Off Main will become a huge
event that no one will want to
miss.

"We need to watch conditions
closely as the dry season con-
tinues and consider stricter
measures if water resources or
water supply conditions warrant
them," concluded Sorenson.
Although there was heat and
drought early in the summer,
late summer and early fall rains
may have made up for it. To.
date, for the rainfall at the
Cattle Rain Station southwest
of Ona was up to 51.32 inches,
better than the 45.13 at this time
last year. Last weekend's rains
added barely an inch there but
more in other parts of the coun-
ty.
In nearby Polk County,
October rains were officially
6.50 inches in October, al-
though hard-hit areas such as
River Ranch Acres near Lake
Wales, got as much as 16.6
inches. Average October rain-


The next commission mheet-
ing will be 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Prior to coming to Bowling
Green Kimball was a.trainee in
three cities (Palm Bay,
Titusville and Satellite Beach)
with the Florida City/County
Management Association. She
has a master's degree in public
administration from University
of Central Florida in Orlando.
She wrote a letter of resigna-
tion Oct. 24 to the city commis-
sion, as follows:
"Dear Mayor, Vice Mayor,
and Commissioners,
"As you are aware, I was
offered a job out west a couple
of weeks ago. This unexpected
opportunity has consumed days
of discussion with immediate
and extended family members
and friends. After careful delib-
eration, my family and I decid-
ed to take up this new chal-
lenge.
"Please accept this letter as
formal notification of resigna-
tion. I plan on joining the new
agency at the beginning of the
year. My last day with the City
of Bowling Green will be
December 6, 2011; with
November 10 being the last day
I'll be in the office and then
using vacation days for the
remainder of my time.
"In order to turn over my
responsibilities smoothly and
assist the City, to move forward


into the 'future, Plprepared a
memorandum to outline this
next fiscal year's plans and my
suggestions for the interim peri-
od. I will call you at a later date
to go over the details.
"I have enjoyed my time with
Bowling Green. Working
together with the Commission,
we were able to accomplish
some good things for the com-
munity. The City Commission
is indeed great to work with;
key staff members are dedicat-
ed and committed to their
duties; citizens are understand-
ing and supportive on many
issues; the surrounding commu-
nities and agencies are always
willing to offer a helping hand.
Overall, Bowling Green is a
wonderful place to work and it
has impacted my family and me
in many positive ways.
"I want to thank you for the
rewarding experience of serv-
ing you since 2008. I wish
Bowling Green the best. I will
be available for assistance dur-
ing the transition if you feel it is
needed."

Although the event was
designed to help people learn I
about animals, visitors will get P
a chance to take part in other
activities going on as well.
Free canoe rides will be pro-
vided by the Hardee County
School District's Outdoor
Classroom. Guides will take
visitors across the Twin Lakes
and tell them about the different
types of animals that live in and
near the lake.
Other fun things available
are free temporary tattoos as
well as T-shirts, which will be
on sale with proceeds going to
benefit the Hardee County
Wildlife Refuge.
Food will include free hot
dogs, while supplies last. But
there will also be a variety of
food vendors selling shaved ice,
funnel cakes and other snacks.
This being a free event, who
wouldn't want to participate?
It's a chance to see the top-
notch refuge this county main-.
tains, with its natural habitats
for the animals and wooden,
boardwalks and interpretive
displays for viewers.
So, head down to the Hardee
County Wildlife Refuge at
Pioneer Park on Saturday
between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and
experience a fun day of nature.


fall in the area is just under
three inches.
A press release this week
reminded residents "to check
the timers on their irrigation
system controllers this week-
end, which is the end of
Daylight Saving Time." When
residents turn back their clocks
on Saturday night, it's a good
time to make sure irrigation
timers are also reset.
There is no rain predicted
within the next week, with the
possible exception of thunder-
showers on Friday.

Letter To The Editor

Where is Commissioner's

Vision For The Elderly?


Dear Editor:
Has our vision for Hardee
County changed from what it
was say 60 years ago?
I'm thankful those commis-
sioners of that time had a vision.
to take an old school house and
turn it into a place to give our
older residents a place to live
and be cared for when they can
no longer provide that for them-
selves. It's also a place where
people can socialize with those
of their own generation.
Some of us feel that it is wise
and necessary that we provide
for the elderly. Remodeling of
some bathrooms is not asking a
lot. Just the talk of it has creat-
ed much enthusiasm among the
workers and the residents.
As to the charge of spending
money on a 90-year-old build-
ing, shall we consider the funds
spent on county buildings to
bring them to a higher stan-
dard? Is it worth the invest-
ment? I believe the residents of
Resthaven should have the
same considerations given to
them.
The Hardee County Conm-


missioners give hundreds of
thousands of dollars (in tax
abatements and waiving permit
fees) to a solar company to
build two miles from Avon Park
and call that vision. There are
those who question the judg-
ment of this decision especially
now because of the news which
has come forth regarding the
federal governments decision in
investing in solar energy busi-
nesses. Now those same indi-
viduals in Hardee County think
that spending $16,000 to reno-
vate bathrooms for the elderly
is questionable.
I challenge anyone who dis-
agrees with me, i.e. commis-
sioners, to go to Resthaven at
about 11 a.m. on any day, and
you will find the residents sit-
ting in the lobby. Take a seat
and talk to them, for some of
them will surely strike up a con-
versation.
If you will do this I believe
you will leave there with a dif-
ferent attitude and most
assuredly concern for their
needs.
Wayne Gourley. Ona


Beattie recommends a house
inspection conducted by Ofc.
Amy Drake. The chief says she
will visit yoqr house and note
its vulnerabilities so that resi-
dents can make their treasures
less attractive and available to
quick-cash crooks.
Call the Wauchula Police
Department at 773-3265 to
arrange an inspection.

Nothing is more destructive
of respect for the govern.
ment and the law of the land
than passing laws which
cannot be enforced.

OPEN FILING FOR HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION
The Hardee County Property Appraiser's Office is now ac-
cepting homestead applications for 2012.
If you purchased a home or built a new home during 2011 and
are currently residing in that home as your permanent residence,
you may be eligible for up to a $50,000 homestead property tax
exemption. This exemption could save property owners between
$423 and $915 each year, depending on the taxes levied by each
taxing authority.
Recent legislation addressing property tax reform also pro-
vides an additional benefit.for property owners through "portabili-
ty." Portability allows property owners to transfer the "Save Our
Homes" benefits from a previous homestead to a newly established
* homestead. For instance, if you establish a new homestead with a
market value of $150,000 and your previous homestead had a
"Save Our Homes" cap of $50,000, the assessed value of your new
homestead would be $100,000 before applying homestead exemp-
tion.


If the new homestead has a greater value than the previous
homestead, then the full value of the "Save Our Homes" cap is
transferred, but if the value of the new homestead is lower, then the
percentage difference between the just value and assessed value is
applied. Under current market conditions, property values for
homes have dropped so rapidly that very few home owners still
have the benefit of a "Save our Homes" cap.
Legislation passed several years ago also provides some prop-
erties with an additional homestead exemption of up to $25,000 -
this exemption is automatic for current homestead residents. The
additional exemption only applies to properties with an assessed
value of $50,000 or more. The legislation requires at least $25,000
of the value to be taxable, therefore if the value of your home is
$52,000, only $2,000 is granted as an additional exemption. In
math terms, $52,000 minus $25,000 (standard exemption) equals
$27,000, then minus $25,000 (taxable value) equals $2,000 addi-
tional homestead.
The additional exemption does not apply to the School
Board's tax levy. The total tax savings ranges between $232 and
$458 depending on the tax district.

They carried it just as far as
they could.
The 2011 Hardee volleyball
girls learned and grew as a team
throughout the season and
learned a final hard lesson on
Tuesday evening. There are just
some teams that have it all-
height, senior experience- and
teamwork.
The Lady Wildcats faced the
Titusville Lady Terriers in the
quarterfinal round of the
Region 3 championships. The
Terriers came in with a 14-4
record with seven seniors, five
juniors, one soph and one fresh-
man. Two of their losses came
against District 9 rival Merritt
Island, which forced the
Terriers into the runner-up spot
in their district.
Hardee countered with three
seniors, a half dozen juniors,
four sophs and two freshmen
just up from the JV squad.
After the teams exchanged
opening points in game one,
senior Kylie Steele served 10
straight points to give the

In 1925 Blyant L Coker (1903-1986) came to
Wauchula from Arcadia and opened this beautiful
funeral home as Bryant Coker Funeral Home and
honorably served the people of Hardee County for
over forty years.

In 1964 L. Curry Raley (1937-2011) came to
Wauchula and in 1972 the funeral home became
Coker-Raley Funeral Home until 1976 when it
became Curry Raley Funeral Home and provided
services for the people of Hardee Comuty for another
thirty years.

Now in 2011 another long trusted family of funeral
service professionals from Arcadia are here in Hardee
County to bring back the service and trust you
deserve, at a time when you need it the most.

Terriers an 11-1 advantage.
Nyshira Jackson got a couple
back for Hardee, before 6 foot
senior Paige Townsend ran off
another four points for an insur-
mountable 16-3 lead. The
Hardee girls would return a
serve, only to have it crammed
back down their throats by
dominating 6-1 Aroon Dun-
canson, who has already com-
mitted to play her college ball at
the University of Central
Florida.
Senior Marisa Cavallero fin-
ished it off for Titusville with
the final four points to win the
opening game 25-8.
Soph Karlee Henderson
opened serve for Hardee in
game two. Her first serve was
returned long. Hardee stayed
closer in this game, having
learned to dig out those return
smashes. The Lady 'Cats got as
close as 12-10 before Steele
came up for service and
increased the score to 20-10.
Bailey Carlton came on in relief
and got several points for
Hardee, including an ace.
The Hardee front line of


Summer Palmer, Jackson,
Desiree Smith, Katie Wheeler
and Jessica "Bird" Harrison
blocked and re-blocked as sev-
eral serves went through six or
seven volleys before it would
roll the net and drop on the
Hardee side. Despite a solid
effort, Hardee lost the second
game 25-16.
Seniors Abby Mascellino and
Steele quickly gave Titusville
an 12-1 lead in game three. The
partisan crowd got behind
Hardee, imploring the Lady
'Cats to get some points. They
did and, behind Harrison serv-
ing, got to 23-10 before Steele
came around to serve again and
finish the game 25-10.
Hardee will lose Maria
Anselmo, Ashley Nichols and
Summer Palmer to graduation.
Expected back are juniors
Kayla "Louie" Nichols, Katie
Wheeler, Nyshira Jackson,
Desiree Smith, Jessica Harrison

4 Swimmers Go Regional


STUDENT COUNCIL


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
For the four Hardee swim-
mers preparing for regional
competition, the cool weather
cin be a big distraction.
Juniors Wyatt Kofkee and
Will Crawford, and sophs Leah
Weeks and Garrett Albritton are
appreciative of the efforts of
Carl Coleman and Mike Wilk-
inson in getting the heating pan-
els at the Recreation Complex
pool back in working order,
When they emerge from the
cool waters, it is great to have
the parkas provided by the
Hardee Athletic Foundation.
That aside, Hardee had some
success and near success in the
District 5 meet in Winter Haven
last week. Four hope to advance
from Saturday's Region 2 meet
at the Lake Highland Prep
Aquatic Complex. The state 1A
finals are Nov. 10-12 in
Orlando.


Weeks is the sole representa-
tive in girls swimming at the
regional meet. She placed sev-
enth in both the 200 freestyle
and 500 freestyle. Only the top
eight advance to the next level,
but teammates, Savannah
Miller, Megan Hartman, April
Garland, Emily Hughes. Emily
Rhodes, Holly Hughes and
Caitlin Dufresne also put in
some good performances.
On the boys side of the
ledger, Kofke placed fourth in
both the 100 backstroke and
200 free. Crawford was eighth
in the 500 freestyle. Albritton
went from sixth in the prelimi-
naries to fifth in the finals of the
50 free and from sixth to fourth
in the 100 free.
Hardee boys just missed
qualifying in a pair of relays. In
the 200 free relay, Albritton and
Kofke were joined by Kramer
Royal and Cody Spencer for a
third-place finish. The same


foursome placed fourth in the
400 free relay, lowing their pre-
liminary time of 4:14:37 in the
preliminaries to 4:10:47 in the
finals.
Other boys participating were
Cleston Sanders, Kevin Kunkel
and Keifer Kedzor, enabling the
boys team to finish third over-
all, behind the .host All Saints'
Academy and Lake Placid, but
four points ahead of Avon Park
and seven ahead of Frostproof.
Finishing up were Lakeland
Christian, Lake Wales, Mul-
berry, Santa Fe Christian and
Oasis Christian.
Hardee's young girls team
didn't fare so well, placing
eighth of the nine teams there.
Lake Placid won for the girls,
followed by All Saints',
Lakeland Christian, Oasis
Christian, Frostproof, Lake
Wales, Avon park, Santa Fe,
Hardee and Mulberry.


Underlying the whole scheme of civilization is.the confidence men have in each other,
confidence in their integrity, confidence in their honesty, confidence in their future.

Back To Basics
By lan Rice
Gospel Preacher


MISUNDERSTOOD
In many instances, Jesus was grossly misunderstood.
His mission was misinterpreted. Men thought he came to
establish an earthly kingdom and to reign as an earthly king. But,
He refused earthly honor and asserted, "... My kingdom is not of
this world. If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would
fight, so that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now My
kingdom is not from here," John 18:36.
The strongest hostility and the worst misrepresentations were
from the religious leaders of the Pharisees and Sadducees, which
were religious sects among the Jews. As Jesus' reputation grew,
their jealousy became more intense and their hostility even more
severe ultimately peaking with the crucifixion.
Christ's church is often misunderstood and misrepresented.
Sometimes it's done ignorantly, and sometimes slanderously.
We're interested in getting all to understand the truth that
makes men free. There are churches in the land that are following
the New Testament pattern! The churches of Christ today wear the
same name, Romans 16:16; teach the same plan of salvation, Mark
16:16 and Acts 2:38; and worship the same way that Christ's
church did in the days of the apostles, Acts 2:42, 20:7 and
Ephesians 5:19.
Those in the Lord's body insist on strict adherence to what is
plainly revealed in the New Testament; and contend that
Christianity can be practiced without denominationalism, just as it
was in the days of the apostles.
Even though our plea is for pure Christianity in its simplest
form and unity of all believers, false accusations are still brought
against God's people.
The church is many times accused of being narrow because of
insisting on strict adherence to what is plainly taught in the Bible.
Urging faith in what the Lord teaches and obedience to what He
commands is the requirement of every Christian! We should all be
striving more diligently to please Him, not ourselves. To accuse the
church of being narrow is to accuse Christ and the inspired apos-
tles and writers of the New Testament of being narrow.
Jesus said, "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and
broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who
go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way
which leads to life, and there are few who find it," Matthew 7:13-
14.
This narrow way is,yet large enough for all the obedient to
walk with Christ and with each other in fellowship, peace and love.
Read. Study. Obey God's word!

a non-denominational group of Christians seeking to follow the
New Testament pattern of service to God. Visit the church website

it includes a pair of Wauchula
Airport projects. One in Fiscal
Year 2014. has a total amount of
$252.170 with Federal Aviation
Authority, state DOT-Aviation
funds and local match. Another,
in FY 2017, totals $300.213. of
federal, state and local monies.
One of the key projects added
in FY 2017 is $1.212 million
for intersection improvements
at Seven Mile Point, reconfig-
uring it to allow SR 64 traffic to
proceed directly east and SR
636 to be the merging highway.
Another much-needed proj-
ect for FY 2017 is drainage
improvements at U.S. 17 and
Will Duke Road at the south of
Wauchula. That intersection
floods easily and is a hazard for
folks entering and leaving the
Magnolia Manor community
when it rains heavely.
Other 2016-17 FY monies are
planned for the Transportation
Disadvantaged program, traffic
signal maintenance and side-
walks, including one along U.S.
17 North from K.D. Revell
Road to REA Road.
Many residents are more con-
cerned with current projects.

FALL, Y'ALL
Well, fall is here, or at least that is what the calendar says.
Pretty soon our Northern friends will flock in from Ohio, New
York, Canada, Michigan and various other cold places.
A recent cold spell here was greeted at my house with an array
of hoorays! We celebrated by playing chase in the morning or a
game of tag. We looked through our closets and tried to find sweats
and long sleeves even though we really didn't need them, we just
wanted to see if we owned such items.
Later in the day, we thought, hey, it might be under 80 degrees
by dark, so we should have chili for dinner. It went from chili to
let's make a fire and roast hot dogs and marshmallows. Then it was
chili dogs and ice-cold Cokes in bottles and s'mores.
We invited friends over and by the time dark came we had a
full-blown fall party going, with football on the TV.
My daughter was still running around well after dark saying
we better enjoy this weather, this is like once in a lifetime in
Florida. Well, not quite, but I sure felt what she was saying.
There is something nice about a cool breeze, especially after a
long summer of hot, rainy, muggy weather.
.Fall is filled with lots of fun activities, f[ tball, hunting and
holidays, just to name a.few. At my house we have two October
birthdays, thise definitely count as holidays, especially to those
two who are celebrating. Then comes Halloween, Thanksgiving
and Christmas.
I still remember Halloweens in Wauchula. I lived at 216
Riverview Dr. growing up and back then everything seemed so big.
I recently drove through Riverview and I don't know whether it
was Hurricane Charley or just 30-something years that made
everything look so different.
Anyway, Riverview Drive was the place to be on Halloween
nights. I remember cars everywhere and droves and droves of peo-
ple coming through our little neighborhood. I remember the Smith
family tying a ghost up high in a tree and it would come zipping
down a wire to the front door whenever someone rang their door-
,bell. Many a little kid ran away screaming.
I remember my sister and brother and I setting up this doctor's
operating table. We had an old refrigerator box up on a long table.
and my sister laid in it. We cut out a hole near her stomach and put
in a trash bag and filled it with peeled grapes. spaghetti, ketchup
and other yucky junk to look like a person's stomach. When an
unsuspecting trick-or-treater would approach. I'd pretend like I
was operating: and pull out something gross and ask. "Would you
like some candy?"
My brother would pop out from under the table with real
'candy and drop some in their bag.
These are just two of thousands of great stories we could tell
about Halloween nights in Riverview.
Fall is filled with activities to keep us busy. Try not to get so
busy you miss out on what's really important. Enjoy traveling.
playing chase, hosting a party, celebrating the holidays or hunting
and football. Whatever you are doing this fall. I hope you get some
cooler weather and can take a breather and enjoy yourself.
Knowing Florida like I do. pretty soon it will be hot again, and
you'll have to be near some water or travel North to get cooler, so
get out and enjoy all the fun things that Florida has to offer.

SCOP (Small Counties Oper-
ations Programs) fund some of
the resurfacing and bridge work
planned in the next five years.
Some monies are those ear-
marked for ongoing projects
such as Transportation Disad-
vantaged and traffic signal


maintenance.
Still other funds are distrib-
uted among the counties on
major road projects such as
U.S. 17 in Hardee County. and
similar federal and state roads
in the other 11 counties in the
district. Some of the projects


DOT issues a weekly bulletin
on the projects under way in
each of its 12 counties. The
most recent report. Oct. 23.
included eight projects in
Hardee County.
Recently begun. the four-lan-
ingof U.S. 17 for the 10.5 miles
from Seventh Avente in Zolfo
Springs to CR 63-.. weetwater
Road) is a critical first-step in
finishing four-laning U.S. 17 in
Hardee County. This project
will have twin dual-laned north-
bound and southbound travel
lanes separated 'by a grassy
ditch. The bridge over Alligator
Branch will be widened and
improved.
Immediate work includes
removal and burning of trees
and underbrush and installation
of storm drain crossings under
the future northbound lanes.
Drainage will flow into the sys-
tem of 11 new retention ponds.
Relocating some of the Town of
Zolfo Springs water and sewer
facilities will be started as well.
Ajax Paving Industries hopes to
complete the work by the sum-
mer of 2013.
The southern 5.034 miles
from Sweetwater Road to the
DeSoto County line is in vari-
ous stages over the next five
years, starting with final design
and engineering and moving to
construction in the 2015-16 fis-
cal year.
The only other ongoing con-
struction project in the county is
improvements on CR 663 north
of 62 to the Polk County Line.
There will be full depth recon-
struction along with drainage
improvements, guardrail, sign-
ing and pavement markings.
APAC Southeast has the con-
tract, which began last year and
hopes to complete the project
shortly.
Other DOT work in the coun-
ty for this year are resurfacing
and maintenance work: clean-
ing ditches and shoulders along
U.S. 17 in Zolfo Springs, off SR
64 at Bailey Road and off SR
636 (East Main Street) from
King to Hollandtown roads.
Resurfacing work is at SR 636
east of Griffin Road, and along
SR 64 at Little Cypress Golf
Course.
Starting next July, Hardee
County DOT projects will
include resurfacing on Center
Hill Road from SR 62 to CR
664, CR 671 (Parnell Road)
from Steve Roberts Special to
SR 64, East REA Road from
U.S. 17 to Heard Bridge Road,
Marguerite Road from Ten Mile
Grade to west of Josephine
Road, and North Hammock
Road from Parnell Road to the
Highlands County line. The
largest resurfacing may be on
the 5.7 miles of SR 66 from
west of Charley Anderson Road
to east of Charley Creek.
There is various funding for
different road projects. The
state SCRAP (Small County
Road Assistance Program) and


Hardee Cour

PAt


are the result of competitive
bidding, some due to priority to
the community or other rea-
sons. Hardee has lobbied for its
U.S. 17 four-laning for years,
recently proclaiming "It's Our
Turn" to get needed U.S. 17
funding.

Whether you push or you pull
Whether you frown or you smile

Whether you're shouting or you're whispering
To be filled with love or to be filled with hate
Somebody is always standing opposite you

Whether your choice is right or your choice is wrong
Whether your thoughts are spoken

To believe in something or to believe in nothing
Somebody is always standing opposite you

Always try to think before you act
Make sure to choose your words wisely
For the decisions you make may influence

Not always aware of it at the time-Nevertheless,

HJHS 'Cats



Flail Eagles


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
At the end of last week, it was
down to the final game.
The Hardee Junior High
Wildcats decimated the Hill-
Gustat Golden Eagles 64-0 last
Tuesday to set the scene for a
perfect season on Tuesday of
this week. That's when the
DeSoto Middle School Panther
squad comes to face off against
Hardee in the season finale in
the Heartland Conference com-
petition.
Hardee was the only team to
beat the Bok Academy Middle
School team, which finished at
5-1. The scheduled second
meeting between these teams,
in Lake Wales on Oct. 18, was
rained out. Hardee has shut
down Lake Placid, Sebring and
now Hill-Gustat. The young
'Cats won 18-8 over Bok and
20-14 over Avon Park on its
turf.
"This was a solid perform-
ance from our starters. We were
excited to see some of our guys
that will be coming back next
year get a lot of action. Six of
our eight touchdowns and five
two-point conversions were
scored by seventh graders,"
said Offensive Coordinator
,West Palmer.
Eighth grader Alex Hinojosa
took Offensive Player of the
Game honors again. He had 70
yards on two carries and a pair
of two-point conversions.
Sharing Defensive Player of
the Game honors were Matthew
Green and Joshua McClelland,
who combined for nine tackles,
a pair of quarterback sacks and
twin tackles for loss.
On Special Teams, Isis Garza
has some very big hits to claim
that honor.
The junior Wildcats had 350
yards of offense and several
players contributing to it. Willie
Baker picked up the first pair of
scores. He scored on a 15-yard
run and also took the two-point
conversion in. Next, he had a
30-yard TD run. Omar Alamia
took a pass from Marco
DeLeon for the conversion
points.
Alamia snared another pass
for a 15-yard TD, and Parker
Carlton grabbed the pass for the
two-pointer.
Hayden Lindsey had a five-
yard reception for the next tally.
Hinojosa ran in the end zone for


the conversion score.
Scoring continued with a
Garza 15-yard jaunt into the
end zone and two-point run as
well.
Hinojosa scurried in from 50
yards out and also scored the
two-pointer.
The final pair of tallies were
by Jarrett Carlton on runs of 30
yards and 40 yards. Baker got
the two-pointer on the first
score and Lindsey got the next.
DeLeon finished with 42
passing yards and a pair of
touchdowns and added an
eight-yard run of his own. One
of his passes was a 12-yard
reception by Austin Garcia.
Defensively, there were also
a lot of players participating.
Hinojosa had four tackles and
an interception, while Parker
Carlton also had four tackles
and Green added four tackles
with one sack. Joshua Mc-
Clellan had five tackles and
Garza had four. Others on the
tackle parade were Andrew
Hagans, Ryan Moore, Zach
Coronado, Alejandro Rodriguez
,Parker Carlton and Lindsey.
Other players getting some
time in the game included
Landon Albritton, Thomas
Atchley, Dalton Baker, Allen
Brown, Hunter Bryant, Carlos
Camacho, Braddock Collom,
Tyler Congleton, Conner Craw-
ford, Chris Hull, Walter Jack-
son, Jimmy Lane, Sherry Lee,
Charles Manley and Jonatan
Martinez.
Also, Brennick Mascorro,
William McClelland, Gabriel
Mendoza, Boone Paris, Daniel
Permeter, David Ramirez, Jer-
emy Reyna, Jessie Reyna,
Chauncy Rivers, Kole Robert-
son, Ty Schoffner, Hunter
Scranton, Benjamin Tamayo,
Ty Trammell, Lawrence Walk-
er, Kevin White and Travis
Williams.
"It was an exciting game last
week, but we had to put this
game behind us quickly. Our
toughest game of the season is
next Tuesday and we will need
a lot of preparation. A very ath-
letic DeSoto Panther team is
coming to 'Hardee and it will
take everything our players
have in them to come away
with a win," concluded Palmer
last Thursday.
The Tuesday evening score
was unavailable at press time.

School grounds recently to help kindergarten students remember that H is for Helicopter.
Students learned about the letter of the week in class, and then were given the special treat
of watching a real helicopter land on campus. The Firefly crew shared information about he-
'icopters and answered questions. Here, Missy Cariton's class takes a closer look at the hel-

Local Businesses On TV Show


CF Industries and Peace
River Electric Cooperative re-
cently were featured on segment
aired on WTSP Channel 10.
The companies were inter-
viewed by "Studio 10" show
hosts Jerome Ritchey and
Holley Sinn for a piece,entitled
"A Green Partnership."
Bill Mulcay, chief executive
officer of Peace River Electric
Cooperative; Richard Ghent,
director of community affairs
for phosphate operations; and
Brett Belknap, superintendent of
instrument and electrical at CF
Industries Plant City Phosphate
Complex represented the Cen-
tral Florida fertilizer producer.
"Studio 10" showcased ways
in which businesses includ-
ing PRECO and CF Industries
- are working to reduce their
energy consumption through
"cogeneration" and other prac-
tices, and why this is important
for the community as a whole.
During the segment, Mulcay
discussed Peace River Electric
Cooperative's portfolio of green
energy programs available to its
members. It is one of 10 electric
cooperatives who own and
receive power from Seminole
Electric Cooperative, headquar-
tered in Tampa. Seminole pro-
vides six percent of its power
supply to its members in the
form of renewable energy.


On the "Studio 10" feature,
PRECO highlighted its new
headquarters in Wauchula,
which was awarded "Silver
Certification" as an energy-effi-
cient green building.
Mulcay's personal goal is to
educate the cooperative's mem-
bers on the best way to take
control of power bills read
the electric meter daily.
Comparing the day-to-day read-
ings helps consumers learn
what activities and electronic
devices in the home have the
most impact.
Ghent and Belknap of CF
Industries discussed how at
each of their facilities, and in all
of their operations, they have
focused on minimizing their
energy footprint. For example,
at CF Industries Phosphate
Complex in Plant City, the
process of making phosphate
fertilizer generates a steam
byproduct.
This steam is a good source
of thermal energy. A 40-mega-
watt. turbine generator at the
Plant City Phosphate Com-plex
converts excess steam into
power, providing enough ener-
gy to power 35,000 homes.
During times when CF pro-
duces excess power, it is ex-
ported to the local energy grid.
CF also highlighted its water
usage practices. It recycles 95


percent of the water used in
operations, has been innovative
in reusing waste water. The
cities of Plant City and
Wauchula both supply treated
wastewater to the CF facilities
for use in making fertilizer,
enabling CF to use less ground-
water.


Fall Ride For Handicapped


Is Set For This Weekend


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
There are times when people
take even the simplest of things,
such as holding a pencil, for
granted.
That's why Heartland Horses
& Handicapped Inc. was start-
ed: to help make the impossible
seem possible. The non-profit
organization was founded in
1998 by the late Sandy Kuhn.
Her sole purpose was to help
those with disabilities improve
their way of life.
Experiences with horses can
help the lives of individuals
with physical, emotional or
developmental challenges. The
goal is to help people improve
their motor skills, posture, bal-
ance, coordination and strength.
Because this program is
designed to help people, the
cost of riding horses for a dis-
abled person is absolutely noth-
ing. Instead, Heartland Horses


. -


& HIandicapped gathers the
funds to be able to maintain the
horses and land and provide
free therapeutic horseback rides
by holding fund raisers and dif-
ferent events throughout the
year.
Such events include the
upcoming Damboise Ranch
Fall Ride. This event began to
help pay for the more than
$75,000 a year it takes to run
HHH.
The Fall Ride will begin
tomorrow (Friday) at noon
when the gates open and will
end at noon on Sunday when
the gates close. Registration can
be done on Friday until dusk or
Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 9:45
a.m. Camping is available at no
extra charge.
At arrival on Friday. partici-
pants will get to explore the
areas that are accessible fol-
lowed by having dinner on their
own.


On Saturday, the day will be
packed with fun activities. The
trail ride will begin, at 10 a.m.
and there is horse soccer at 3
p.m.. a horse demonstration by
the Cowboy Up Ministry at 5
p.m., and then a chicken-and-
ribs dinner. Dinner is by pre-
registration, and the form can
be found online.
On the final day, a biblical
principle demonstration will
begin at 10 a.m. by the Cowboy
Up Ministry through horse
training techniques. Then the
event will officially end at
noon.
The Damboise Ranch Ride
will be located at the Cracker
Trail Arena at 6134 SR 66 east
of Zolfo Springs.

Greetings from Fort Green!
This' weather changing re-
minds you of North Georgia or
North Carolina. While we were
on our trip the leaves changed
and were their usual beautiful
selves. Then when we returned
home, the raih tree was in full
bloom as was a camellia. These
are two of my favorites in my
yard.
While in North Carolina, in
the campground that we stayed
in the violets grew wild and this
is always an added blessing. It
always takes me back to my
childhood when the violets
bloomed in the springtime and
my family, Mama, Daddy and
us kids, would go to the woods
behind our home and pick wild
violets. It always seemed if you
would look in the direction the
violet was pointing you would
find another, or that was the
way my childhood mind be-
lieved! Violets were Mama's
favorite flower.
While we were in North Car-
olina, Scott Roper was preach-
ing a revival at the Ebenezer
Baptist Church, which was
about 10 miles from our camp-
ground. We enjoyed seeing him
and his family and listening to
his dynamic sermons. It is
always a pleasure to see old
friends.
Happy birthday wishes to
Odell Lee, who will reach that
magical number of 91! Odell
still gets around good and
enjoys life.
We have some serious prayer
needs at Fort Green. One of our
former neighbors, Jewel No-
bles, who has a married name
that I don't know, was told she
has stage-four cancer last week
and not much hope of a long
life. Billy Lines is receiving
treatment for his cancer, Buck
Toole is taking treatments but
you just can't keep him down
and he is still spraying groves
and working around his home,
Willie Godwin is still on crutch-
es with his knee swollen like a
softball, Sadianne McQuaig is
scheduled for some tests, Cindy
Walker is facing possible sur-
gery and Jane Kennedy fell and
is taking therapy. Please pray
for all of these.
On a happy note, Bobby
Gibbs, who used to live here, is
doing very good after his treat-
ment for leukemia.
The fall festival was a huge
success last Saturday night.
They all had a good time and
over 42 youngsters registered.
The youth overnight trip will be
this Friday night. There will be


some mighty tired parents this
coming Saturday morning after
they chaperone this lively group
all night. They will go to a
Christian Super Bowl in Tampa.
The shoebox ministry is in
full swing. Anyone wanting to
fill a shoebox should get busy.
They must be turned into the
church by Nov. 16.
The Thanksgiving dinner at
Fort Green will be at 7 p.m. on
Wednesday, Nov. 9. The busi-
ness meeting will be at 6 p.m.
Mildred Cooper was well
enough to attend services last
Sunday morning. Chrysta
Chancey said her mother, Betty
Walker, was much better but
she wasn't able to attend church
last Sunday. Please remember
to pray for her.
The memorial for Leo Blink
was very good last Saturday.
Quite a few members of his
family were in attendance, fly-
ing in from West Virginia,
Wisconsin, Ohio, Maryland and
Massachusetts. They were plan-
ning on leaving last Sunday and
Monday, but with the unusual
weather up North it is possible
the airports were closed. I sure
hope that early snow doesn't
mean we are going to have a
cold winter, but there are plenty
of acorns on the ground. There
is an old farmers' observation
that it will be cold when the ani-
mals have plenty of food to eat!
The '50s and '60s class re-
unions were super. It is great to
see friends and acquaintances at
something fun instead of at
funerals. Sad to say but that is
usually where you see someone
if they don't go to the same
church as you do. Sherman's
class of 1957 met for two super
suppers, Friday night at John
and Tito Terrell's and Saturday
night at Duck and Susan
Smith's. Duck commented that
their classmates loved one
another while in school and
continue to love one another.
One wonders if this is the case
in the present generation.
Jim Sasser attended our
church services, as he came for
his reunion with the Class of
'55. His son, Dennis, and Beth
attended the Georgia-Florida
game at the Gator Bowl
Saturday, and as I had predicted
to Beth those Dawgs won! Of
course, I am from Georgia, and
my older brother never missed a
game. He lived in Jacksonville
but made his final journey at the
young age of 45.
Please pray for each other,
the military and our nation.

Golf Season Over


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Fast greens stopped Hardee
golfers in the regional tourna-
ment in Naples last week.
Junior Will Bennett was the
lone representative for Wildcat
golf, shooting an 81 in the dis-,
trict competition to advance.
The entire girls team qualified
for regionals as district runner-
up.
Regionals were held at the
Hideout Golf Club outside
Naples, a course co-owned by
pro hoopster Larry Bird. "The
superfast greens gave Will
some trouble as we are not used
to playing on them. He drove
the ball well, but had some trou-
ble hitting the greens, shooting
87 in difficult and windy condi-
tions," said Wildcat coach
George Heine.
"All in all, I am proud of him.
He never gave up and tried his
best every shot," concluded
Heine.
Lady 'Cat coach Byron
Jarnagin had similar comments.
"The greens were the fastest
I've seen in a long time. They
were 10 on the stentameter
compared to the usual 12 to 14.
Of course, the home team,
Community School of Naples,


won with a team 333. Cardinal
Mooney. which won our district
with 355 climbed to 389 for
second place." noted Jarnigan.
"The Hardee girls had a 489
in regionals, one shot better
than their 490 at districts.
Freshman Kendall Gough had
the best outing of the day for
Hardee golfers, carding 118.
Brooke Knight was next, fol-
lowed by Courtney Alexander,
Courtney Parks and alternate
Kaitlyn Shaw," conclude Jarn-
agin. Only Courtney Alexander
and Courtney Parks went to
regionals last year when the
three then-seniors went on as a
team.
The boys team loses seniors
Dalton Hewett, Daniel Miller
and Matt Godwin to graduation.
Expected to return are Bennett
and his classmates Trenton
Moon and William Beattie;
sophs Brad Brewer, Eric Klein,
Tyler Hewett, Reed Woods and
Tristen Montgomery; and fresh-
man Justin Davidson.
:The girls lose only Parks to
graduation. Sophs Shaw,
Knight and Anderson; and
freshman Gough are expected
to return, along with a couple of
others who have expressed
interest.

Wildcats Stop Seminoles 21-19


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcat eleven
beat Bradenton Southeast Fri-
day night in a thrilling and rainy
game that has put the 'Cats on
the verge of making the play-
offs.
This week the 'Cats host the
final district opponent, the
DeSoto Bulldogs for the 91st
meeting between the two teams,
the oldest rivalry in the state.
Head Coach Buddy Martin is
asking all Wildcat fans to wear
orange to the game for an
"orange out."
The Southeast Seminoles
received to start last week's
game and picked up three first
downs while driving deep into
Hardee territory: The 'Cat
defense forced four straight
incomplete passes from the 24-
yard line to take over on downs.
Ledarius Sampson moved
the chains with an 11-yard run
before a fumbled exchange on
the snap gave the ball back to
the Seminoles at the Hardee 39.


Two plays later, Myles
Johnson was intercepted by a
diving Andrew Hooks at the 12-
yard line. Hooks carried the
momentum over to the offense
as he ripped off a 13-yard gain
which was followed by a 30-
yard rumble by freshman
Keyonte Holley.
Hardee got inside the South-
east 20-yard line when senior
quarterback Colby Baker
dropped back to pass, eluded a
pair of rushers and scrambled
left for a 17-yard touchdown.
The Octavio Alvarez PAT put
Hardee up 7-0 with 3:09 left in
the first quarter.
The lead did not last long as
the Seminoles came fighting
back.
Brian Poole opened the drive
with a 20-yard run and
Southeast began driving- into
Hardee territory. Johnson then
found Brian Peterson open for a
40-yard touchdown strike.
Andrew Hoyle made the PAT
and the game was tied 7-7 with
1:16 left in the first quarter.

The Wildcats were unable to
gain a first down and were
forced to punt.
Southeast took over at its 35
and drove to the Hardee 20-
yard line before the defense
stopped the Seminoles for the
second time on a fourth-down
play, giving the ball back to the
Cats.
Hardee took over and picked
up two first downs before a 15-
yard chop-block penalty stalled
the drive and Hardee punted
back to Southeast.
On the first play of the drive,
Johnson tried a deep pass and
was intercepted by Deonte
Evans at the Hardee 35-yard
line. He returned the ball all the
way to the Southeast 27-yard
line with just over 3 minutes
left in the half.
Penalties pushed Hardee
back and the Wildcats faced
fourth-and-12 when Baker ran
it in for a touchdown. A holding
penalty against both teams
negated the. score and the down
was replayed.
This time a Baker pass was
intercepted by Eric Thompson
in the end zone for a touchback
with 59 seconds left in the sec-.
ond quarter. Southeast let the
clock run out to finish the half.
Hardee received to start the
second half and picked up two
first downs behind runs by
Hooks and Baker.
A deep pass by Baker was
intercepted by Southeast at its
14-yard line. The Seminoles
could not capitalize and were
forced to punt right back to the
Wildcats.
Hardee took over at its 47-
yard line and quickly moved
toward the goal line after two
penalties against Southeast.
Baker found the end zone with
a quarterback keeper around the
left end from 19-yards out.
Alvarez was good on the
PAT attempt and Hardee led 14-
7 with 4:35 left in the third.
Southeast started its drive

Hardee-Desoto 91st Clash Friday


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of the Herald-Advocate
The oldest rivalry in the state
of Florida gets under way for
the 91st time Friday at 7 p.m. at
Wildcat Stadium as the Hardee
Wildcats take on the Desoto
Bulldogs.
Hardee Head Coach Buddy
Martin is calling upon all
Wildcat fans to show their sup-
port for the team by wearing
orange to the game Friday for
an "orange out" of the
Bulldogs.
Special game shirts will be
sold at the Hardee High School
office all week for $10 but any
shirt will do, as long as it is
orange.
Hardee comes into the game
with a 7-1 record while the
Bulldogs are 3-5.
Records, however, often are
not a factor in this emotion-
fueled game so Hardee is not
overlooking the Bulldogs.
Hardee leads the series 55-30
with 5 ties between the two
teams.
The annual rivalry officially
began in 1923 when the teams
played twice that season.
The first recorded game of
the teams playing was in 1909
when Arcadia High School
defeated Wauchula High School
21-0 in Arcadia.
The teams will be fighting
for the Walter F. "Buck"
Carlton trophy going home with
the winning team until the fol-
lowing year.
Another annual tradition
between the two counties is the
Bob Martin Golf Challenge
held the Saturday before the
annual game. Martin coached at
both schools for a number of
years.
The schools split the pro-
ceeds from the tournament each
year and the victors get to keep
the trophy until the following
year. Hardee golfers reigned
supreme Saturday and captured
the title for another year.

Baseball is a slow, sluggish game, with frequent and triv-
ial interruptions, offering the spectator many opportuni-
ties to reflect at leisure upon the situation on the field:
This is what a fan loves most about the game.

A pass to a receiver in the

vicious hit by Keshun Rivers
that caused a fumble. The

from 8-yards out. Alvarez
added the PAT and the Wildcats
were up 21-13 with 6:33.
Southeast took over at its 15-
yard line with 6:28 to go in the
game.
Unable to make a first down,
the, Seminoles punted back to
Hardee with 5:47 left.
The Wildcats 'took over at
their 42-yard line and quickly
faced a third-and-16. Baker
tried a deep pass to Evans that
was intercepted by Poole with
5:47 left giving Southeast the
ball at its 36.
Johnson was sackedJfofa 6-
yard loss by Maxon.DelHomme
followed by two incomplete
passes and the Seminoles were
forced to punt with 3:34
remaining. Hardee could not
pick up a first down and punted
back to Southeast.
The Seminoles took over at
their 26-yard line with 2:14 left
to play. Southeast was, able to
move down the field by picking
up first downs underneath the
Hardee deep coverage.
Johnson then found Poole
open for a 19-yard touchdown
completion with just 28 seconds
left in the game making it 21-19
and forcing Southeast to go for
a two-point conversion.
Johnson's pass was just short
of his receiver at the goal line
for an incomplete pass and
Hardee led 21-19.
An onside kick attempt was
recovered by Hardee and the
Wildcats held on for the victory.
Now the Cats look to beat
DeSoto Friday night and move
towards the playoffs.
If Hardee wins this week and
Palmetto defeats Southeast, the
Wildcats would be the district
runner-up and travel to Lake
Wales on Nov. 18 for a playoff
game.
If Hardee wins and Southeast
beats Palmetto, then there
would be a three-way tie for
first place in the district and a
playoff would take place on
Monday at Wildcat Stadium.
Admission would be $7 for
the tiebreaker per Florida High
School Athletic Association
rules.
The Wildcats would get a
bye for the first game and await
the winner of the Palmetto and
Southeast game.
The winner of that game
would then play Hardee for the
district championship.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Some trust in chariots and
some in horses, but we trust
in the name of the Lord our
God. They are brought to
their khees and fall, but we
rise and stand firm.
Psalm 20:7-8 (NIV)
FRIDAY
First of all,'you must realize
that in the last days mockers
will come men whose
only guide in life is what they
want for themselves. ... The
Day of the Lord will come. It
is not that the Lord is slow,
as some suppose, but that
He is very patient, for it is not
His will that any man will per-
ish, but that all should come
to repentance.
II Peter 3:3-4 (NEB)
SATURDAY
The gossip of bad people
gets them in trouble; the
conversation of good people
keeps them out of it. Well-
spoken words bring satisfac-
tion; well-done work has its
own reward. Fools are head-
strong and do what they like;
wise people take advice.
Proverbs 3:13-15 (ME)
SUNDAY
And now, what about the
coming again of our Lord
Jesus Christ, and our being
gathered to meet Him? ...
That day will not come until
two things happen. First,
there will be a time of great
rebellion against God ...
And then the Man of
Rebellion (Satan) will come.
He will claim that he himself
is God. With this in mind,
stand firm and keep a strong
grip on the truth.
II Thessalonians 2:1,3b,4b, 15 (TLB)
MONDAY
God is the One who made
the star groups; He changes
darkness into the morning
light, and day into dark
night. He calls for the waters
of the sea to pour out on the
earth. The Lord is His name.
Amos 5:8 (NCV)
TUESDAY
For there will be great tribu-
lation, such as has not been
since the beginning of the
world. ... Immediately after
the tribulation ... they will
see the Son of Man (Jesus)
coming on the clouds of
heaven with power and
great glory..... Watch, there-
fore, as you do not know on
what day your Lord is com-
ing.
Matthew 24:21,29a,30b,42 (RSV)
WEDNESDAY
The eyes of the Lord search
the whole earth in order to
strengthen those whose
hearts are fully committed to
Him.
II Chronicles 16:9 (NLT)

Volleyball Earns District Championship


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Another close encounter,
another victory.
Hardee Senior High School
Principal Dr. Michelle Polk was
pleased to be able to present the
Class 5A, District 10 volleyball
championship trophy to her
own Hardee Lady Wildcats.
The Lady 'Cats survived a
scare by Auburndale in the
semi-finals,, and had to battle
for points with Lake Wales to
win the championship game on
Thursday night. -
That put Hardee as host
Tuesday in the Class 5A region-
al quarterfinal game against the
District 9 runner-up Titusville.
The Terriers would come in
with a 14-4 record. Whoever
wins gets to the regional semi-
final game next Tuesday at 7
p.m., against the winner of the
Merritt Island-Lake Wales
matchup on Tuesday. The
regional championship game is
Nov. 12 and the state champi-
onship semi-finals and finals
are in Kissimmee Nov. 16-18.
The senior trio for the Lady
'Cats was excited about win-
ning the district championship.
Ashley Nichols simply said,
"I'm so proud of our team."
Maria Anselmo couldn't put it
in words. "There's just no way
to explain it." Summer Palmer


spoke for them all. "It's really
exciting, the first time the vol-
leyball team has won it. We
worked really hard. I'm looking
forward to the next games."
Coach Ken Leupold sees it as
something special in his 11
years on the sidelines for the
Lady Wildcats. "WOW!" he
exclaimed. "They are getting
more and more aggressive.
They didn't let much hit the
floor in that last game. I think it
helped when they watched Lake
Wales in the semifinal game on
Monday night (when they beat
Teneroc). I'm very proud and
very happy for the girls."
It was never an easy night.
Hardee seemed to take control
in the first game., although it
was tied at 3-3, 12-12, 14-14
and 18-18, before Hardee
forged ahead behind the serving
of junior Jessica Harrison, who
put Hardee ahead 22-18.
Palmer got another service
point, and junior Nyshira
Jackson took it home for the 25-
20 win.
In game two, it was a similar
format, tied at 3-3, 5-5, 6-6 and
7-7. There were six other ties
before Lake Wales got service
points from Zady Williams and
Camesha Thompson to win 25-
22.
Soph Karlee Henderson got
Hardee started with a half


dozen service points in game
three, Each time Lake Wales
threatened, Hardee inched fur-
ther ahead, winning 25-21.
Lake Wales returned the
favor in game four, starting
with a Thompson seven-point
run and winning 25-11 as
Hardee just never got in sync.
On to game five, usually at a
15-point level. Henderson again
jump-started Hardee with a pair
of service points. Alisha Tucker
fought back to tie it at 10-10
and put the Highlanders up 12-
10. Hardee would not quit.
Behind the serving of soph
Kayla "Louie" Nichols, it was
tied at 12-12 and then 13-13. A
Lake Wales serve went awry,
awarding a point to Hardee.
Henderson served the final
point, scored after a brief volley
that went out of bounds off a
Lake Wales player.
It was a hard-fought game,
hard for anyone to lose. For
Lake Wales, it meant traveling
to Merritt Island to face the
District 9 champion. For
Hardee, it was another chance
to host at home. Blocking by
the front line of Palmer,
Jackson, Desiree Smith and
Harrison combined with the
excellent digs of senior libero
Ancelmo to claim the champi-
onship.

Meter Reader Steps In To


Catch Unconscious Woman


Where is a hero when you
need one? For senior citizen
Ruby Howze of Wauchula, a
hero appeared in the right place,
at the right time.
Recently, Peace River Elec-
tric Cooperative meter reader
Dan Duke found himself in the
middle of an emergency. Like
any other crisis, the event began
innocently and without warning.
At the beginning of his work
day, Duke stopped at Howze's
home to change a defective elec-
tric meter.
"I don't usually do meter
changes in the niorning," shares
Duke. At first, he was only
going to drive by her home on
his route to read meters, when,
"Something told me to go ahead
and change it right then."
As a courtesy, Duke went to
the door intending to inform
Howze that her power would be
off momentarily while he
exchanged meters. The next few
minutes became critical.
Duke gave a knock on the
back door and waited. "She
opened the door and said she
was feeling dizzy," explains
Duke. "After that, she blacked
out and started falling back-
ward, so I reached out and
caught her before she hit the
floor. I still had my (insulated
protective) hot gloves on!"
After easing her to the floor,
Duke called her by name to see
if she would respond. When
Howze didn't respond, he
quickly dialed 9-1-1 for help.
He let emergency dispatchers
know what happened and that
Howze was breathing on her
own.
"She coughed a little, so I
could tell that she was breath-
ing," comments Duke. He gave
directions to the location and

within minutes an ambulance
rolled onto the scene.
Howze regained conscious-
ness before the ambulance
arrived. After treatment and.
release from the hospital within
hours of the ordeal, she returned
to the rural home she's lived in
since 1955.
A few days later, Duke
returned to check on Howze.
This time a knock on the door
produced the pair of gloves he
left behind during all the excite-
ment, followed by a big smile
from the grateful Howze.
"Boy, this guy helped me,"
Howze exclaims. "If he hadn't
been here, I might have gone to
the door forsome other reason
and fell down the steps."
The pair has come to know
each other over the past three
years, as Duke has traveled to
her home monthly to read the


meter. "I thank the Lord that he
came! I'm thankful it was
somebody I knew and some-
body who could take care of
me.
"I didn't feel bad that day,"
Howze adds. "By the time I
realized what was happening, it
was kind of over. ,
"You really took care of me,"
Howze tells Duke. "I was per-
fectly comfortable with you.
You did just perfect!"
Duke credits cardiopul-
monary resuscitation training.
"I've never had to use it before
now," he declares. Then mod-
estly downplaying his role, he
insists, "If it had been any other
employee, they would've done
the same thing."
Peace River Electric Co-
operative says it is proud to
have caring employees like Dan
Duke, and is pleased to offer
CPR training to all employees.


HJHS Girls Softball Champions


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High Lady
Wildcat softball team cemented
its season with a win in the
finale last Monday.
The junior Lady 'Cats fin-
ished up with a 9-1 record,
securing another Heartland
Conference Championship.
Hardee split with DeSoto dur-
ing the season, losing 6-1 at
home on Sept. 26, but winning
20-5 at DeSoto on Oct. 17.
Hardee won its last game of
the season, at Sebring, last
week by an 11-0 score, behind
the pitching of Morgan Walters.
Hardee opened with a pair of
tallies. Senida Garcia drew a
walk and cruised home on a
Walters triple to left field. A
Hannah Carlton sacrifice
brought Walters home. Sebring
went down in three consecutive


S


strikeouts.
Neither team scored in the
second stanza. Hardee stranded
Gabby Allen and Sebring went
down one-two-three.
The Lady Wildcats broke the
game wide open in the top of
the third with a bat-around,
begun and ended with Garcia.
She singled to right center and
Walters and Carlton followed
suit. Sarah Welch, Alyssa
Tatum and Allen each drew a
walk, pushing teammates
across the plate. With two away,
Shayna Harned also walked. By
the time, it ended, Hardee had
an 8-0 advantage. Walters
struck out the Sebring side
again.
Hardee only got one run in
the fourth. Walters was hit by a
pitch, stole second and came
home on sacrifices by Carlton
and Welch. It was 9-0. Sebring


BBQ


got a batter aboard, but she was
caught stealing.
The final pair of Lady.
Wildcat scores came in the top
of the fifth. Madison Rucker
singled and Mara Goodwyn
was safe on a bunt. Josie
Hancock moved them along on
a sacrifice and Garcia doubled
to bring both Rucker and
Goodwyn home. Back-to-back
Sebring runners were caught
stealing and a strikeout ended
the game.

Measure not the work until
the day's out and the labor
done.

When I first came to Georgia, I
saw a man plowing a field with a
mule. "May I try it?" I asked.
"Yes, sir," he answered. 'But be
careful."
When I was finished with the row
I looked back. I saw that mine was
crooked out his was straight.
"What did I do wrong? I asked.
"Your eyes wandered." he said.
"I fixed my eyes on a goal."
As in cultivating, so in Christian
living, the secret lies in looking
straight ahead.
The wise man cautioned. "Look
straight ahead; don't even turn
your head to look,"
And to whom should we look?
The Living Bible answers, "Keep
your eyes on Jesus, our Leader
and Instructor."

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football fans, the game of the year has arrived. LSU
travels to Tuscaloosa for a showdown with the Tide. This game not
only has National Championship implications; it is the National
Championship Game. This Saturday night, we should see the game
that will be the highest rated television viewing for the season. A
glance at Stub Hub shows tickets range from $350 in the nose bleed
section to $2100 each on the 50-yard line.
The Gators have dropped to 4-4, their worst season since 1988.
Wins over Furman and Vanderbilt are necessary fdr any low level
bowl this year. FSU and South Carolina may be too much to ask
but on any given Saturday a team can surprise.
Conference expansion was back in the news this week as West
Virginia was finally invited to the Big 12 Conference to replace
Missouri who is supposedly bound for the SEC. After a timeout
*was called because Louisville made a last ditch effort to be admit-
ted to the Big 12, the school and the Big 12 held a press conference
to announce WVU. The Big East will replace WVU, Pitt and
Syracuse with teams such as UCF, Houston, and SMU. The Big
East has tried to add Boise St., Navy and Air Force in an attempt to
keep their BCS Bowl rights. That is very doubtful at this point.
Joe Paterno won his 409th game this weekend. He surpasses
Eddie Robinson of Grambling as the winningest coach in college
football. JoPa has been on the Penn St. sidelines for 46 years. His
Nittany Lions are 7-1 and ranked again this year. Will this be his
last year?
.Georgia Southern lost to Appalachian St. this weekend. So
much for their number one ranking for the Eagles but there is hope.
The smaller division does have a playoff system though. Marshall
lost three games in 1992 but still went through the playoffs to win
the National Championship that season.
Andrew Luck threw an interception for a Southern Cal touch-
down with less than four minutes left in the game. Nickell Robey ,
from Frostproof, almost cost Stanford its 16-game winning streak
with that pick six. Luck drove his team down to tie the game in the
final minutes. After three overtimes, Stanford prevailed behind his
leadership. He deserves the Heisman Trophy.
Now let's look at this week's Bill O' Fare ..
1. LSU at Alabama The Crimson Tide enters the week as a
4.5 favorite in this game. That is about right. The home crowd,
solid ground game and the Tide defense should prevail. LSU has a
way of good luck falling its way but the Tide will be celebrating.
Alabama 31 LSU 27.
2. Louisville at West Virginia One team headed to the Big
12, the other thought they would be. The Cardinals have won two
straight but they did lose to Marshall and FIU. WVU puts up 40
points a game. Look for an offensive explosion in Morgantown.
WVU 44 Louisville 24.
3. Vanderbilt at Florida It is Homecoming. Therefore, it is
Vanderbilt week. Gators need this win for any bowl hopes. Vandy
can still beat Kentucky and Wake Forest to get its six wins. Still,
this game will be close. Vandy is better than usual. Florida 31
Vanderbilt 20.
4. FSU at-Boston College Noles roll in New England on a
Thursday Night ESPN Game. Does anyone even consider Boston
College a major college football team? FSU 46 BC 10.
5. Tulsa at UCF Tulsa is flying high and needs a win to be
bowl eligible. UCF needs a win to keep any bowl hopes alive.
Tulsa 33 UCF 23.
6. Syracuse at Connecticut Two teams who play very sim-
ilar styles. Run game, field position and limit mistakes have been
the style of both. UConn 27 Syracuse 24.
7. Duke at Miami- Good Grief Hurricanes, it is only Duke. Miami
34 Duke 17.
8. Notre Dame at Wake Forest With a hand-picked sched-
ule of cupcakes mixed with a couple real football teams, the Irish
will probably finish 8-4 and take the Champs Sports Bowl away
from a deserving Big East team. Notre Dame 39 Wake Forest 17.
9. Texas Tech at Texas Which Texas Tech team will be
here? The one who beat Oklahoma or the one blown out by Iowa
St? Texas 34 Texas Tech 21.
10. New Mexico St. at Georgia Don't relax, Dawgs. Easy
South of conference game if you are not still relishing the Gator win.
Georgia 41 NMS 13.
11. North Carolina at N. C. St.- Tar Heels control this one. They are
getting ready to be bowl eligible. Wolfpack is still hurting from the
Seminoles. North Carolina 35 NCSU 14.
12. Mississippi at Kentucky Ole Miss has been bad this
year. Playing Kentucky is just what the doctor ordered for an ailing
team. Mississippi 27 Kentucky 17.
13. Cincinnati at Pitt Pitt has lost Graham for the season.
That was the offense. Bearcats should have no trouble but Pitt has
been up and down all year. Cincy 38 Pitt 13.
14. South Carolina at Arkansas Hogs are on a roll this. year.
Gamecocks are not the same without Lattimore. This- could get
ugly. Arkansas 35 South Carolina 14.
15. Texas A&M at Oklahoma Sooners will not lose again
going into the Oklahoma St. game. That game will be a must watch
game also. Oklahoma 41 Texas A&M 23.
16. USF at Rutgers Hopefully, the Bulls will not have to
play in a snow storm like WVU did. Last week looked like a
December game in Green Bay. Rutgers 37 USF 21.
17. Middle Tennessee at Tennessee Vols needed an out of
conference cup cake. Tennessee 45 MTSU 13.
18. Tenn-Martin at Mississippi St. MSU needs this win for
bowl eligibility. MSU 27 TMU 7.
19. Miami at Kansas City Fish continue their drive to draft
Luck. KC 35 Miami 17.
20. Tamipa at New Orleans Bucs defense will take advan-
tage of the Saints poor offensive line. This is the first team Tampa
ever heat. Tampa 33 New Orleans 24.

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

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

crop nutrients to farmers across America, Mosaic farms

its own citrus groves. We have about 6,000 acres of

citrus in production, and 500 of those acres are on

reclaimed land. As grove superintendent, I see things

* through, from planning to harvest.


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

PARK HAPPENINGS
It's time I caught everyone up on the happenings at Paynes
Creek-Historic State Park.
Autumn is here! There's still time to get out and visit Paynes
Creek to take pictures or simply enjoy the wonderful array of wild
flowers that are now in full bloom and the object of numerous pol-
linators, such as butterflies and native bees. The best nature trails
to see vibrant purple and yellow asters in bloom are around the fort
site and along the flatwoods trail.
Speaking of wild flowers, Bok Tower Gardens recently initiat-
ed a project at Paynes Creek to introduce the Florida Golden Aster
in the park's scrub habitat. This federally endangered plant is
known to have only occurred in Hardee, Hillsborough and Manatee
counties. There were 197 golden Florida Golden Asters planted at
various stages of growth from 4 to 18 months old. Florida Golden
Asters begin blooming in late November and early December. We
encourage everyone to get out and see this plant and enjoy its nat-
ural beauty, but please avoid disturbing the site or any plants.
Coming up on Nov. 19 is the second annual Arts & Crafts Fair,
which will be held at the park's special event area. If you are inter-
ested in being a vendor at this event there is still time to register for
a booth. Call the park office at 375-4717 and speak with park staff
or leave a message for Park Ranger Sam Hale.
The Christmas Carols in the Park will take place on Dec. 10 at
6 p.m. Admission is free to enjoy the variety of wonderful
Christmas carols. We suggest bringing a folding chair or blanket.
Local talent, adults and children, will get us all in the Christmas
spirit. We are still looking for additional singers/performers, so
anyone who would like to participate can leave a message for me


at the park office or express your interest to park staff. And, as in
the past, Paynes Creek Preservation Alliance will have goodies for
sale.
It is early to mention it, but March 24 and 25 will be the Fort
Chokonikla Encampment featuring the re-enactment of the
Kennedy-Darling Trading Post attack that killed two store clerks.
Other demonstrations will also provide additional insights into life
in the 1800s.
Of interest to note about your park: The abundant rain has
flooded a few of the trails and can make a soggy experience for vis-
itors hiking near the Peace River and Payne Creek.
Take time to visit a conservation area your state park!
