Ceiling tiles began falling in the balcony a couple of weeks ago. Gradually, more
and more of the tiles in the historic Wauchula City Hall auditorium began to fall,
forcing closure of the facility. The last of the ceiling tiles were removed on Tues-
day, enabling a week-long revival next week and the upcoming production of the
Hardee Players to still be held, with only the rafters and background insulation
in place.

the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office said on Tuesday.
It is believed to have come
from the gun of a man who
wanted to break up a confronta-
tion that was going on behind
the Hay-Now Auction building
at 2817 U.S. 17 N. in Bowling
Green, the major alleged.
He said Mosley was not the
intended victim.
The party at the auction
house, which was leased.for the
occasion, began on Friday
night, Dey said, It attracted over
100 people, who paid an admis-


sion charge to attend.
Later, a confrontation devel-
oped between a man and sever-
al other people, who had gath-
ered outside behind the build-
ing, he described. Another man
came upon the scene, possibly
to break up the fight.
One shot was fired.
It was about 1 a.m. on
Saturday, Dey said. The 911
emergency line was called, but
nearly every party goer imme-
diately left the area, he added.
Dey said Mosley was trans-
ported to Tampa General


Hospital.
Meanwhile, Sgt. Eddie Davis
and Det. Clay Nicholson are
investigating the incident and
have a suspect in the shooting.
uey noted just 20 minutes
before the shooting, deputies
were called to the scene
because of complaints of loud
music. Party goers were told to
turn the music down, he said.
Dey said the party was
attended by young adults, and
that alcoholic beverages were
being consumed.

Turn That Music Down?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
How loud is too loud? What
if my noise bothers you?
The Wauchula City Commis-
sion is poised to make a deci-
sion about that at Monday's
meeting at its chambers in his-
toric City Hall. 225 E. Main St..
Wauchula. The meeting begins
at 6 p.m.
On the agenda is a public
hearing for adopting Ordinance
2011-09. It amends the previous
noise ordinance to more clearly
spell out what is a violation.
This became necessary because


the Second District Court of
Appeals recently rules that state
statutes about loud music from
motor vehicles was unconstitu-
tionally vague and. thus, unen-
forceable.
The court said the state..and
city. ordinances cannot make
exceptions for political or busi-
ness and disallow other noise.
That was too subjective, said
the court.
So. the revised city ordi-
nance. is more specific in its
penalties and its provision of a
permit system for civic events.
such as the recent school


reunions which were held in
and around downtown Heritage
Park.
Violations constitute "culpa-
ble negligence," for which a
person can be fined up to $500
and/ot- 90 days in jail. Each day
or incident of violation is a sep-
arate charge.
In addition, there could be up
to a $10.000 civil penalty for
continued noise or disturbance,
violating the terms of a permit.
Again. each day there is a viola-
tion, it is a separate offense.
For now, waivers can be

Sting Nets



12 Arrests


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
At any given moment, some-
where in Hardee County an
underage girl is conversing with
someone she shouldn't via the
Internet.
And will a sexual predator
travel here to meet up with her?
Yes, says the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, which just
completed a 10-day Internet
sting operation dubbed "Trick
or Treat," first focusing on pros-
titution and then switching to
predators.
In all, 12 people were arrest-
ed, the majority of them hoping
to have sexual relations with a
child, Maj. Randy Dey said.
The tally: one man on drug
charges, two women and one
man on prostitution charges,
seven men on traveling to have
sex with a minor charges, and
one man on an unlawful com-
munication charge.
All had engaged in conversa-
tions on websites and chat
rooms with undercover law
enforcement officers, Dey said.
The major explained that
Sheriff Arnold Lanier has
joined with sheriffs statewide in
targeting those who would
exploit Florida's children.
Lanier is seeking to keep them
out of Hardee County, and off


It is the responsibility of all
law enforcement agencies to
do whatever is necessary to
identify and remove these
sexual predators from the
streets of Florida and from
the streets of this county.
-Sheriff Arnold Lanier

Florida's highways as well, Dey
said.
He said a local bank allowed
the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office to use a vacant foreclo-
sure property for purposes of
setting up the sting. Officers
from here and with the Central
Florida Task Force for Internet
Crimes Against Children then
used the house as a meeting
place for these alleged Internet
prostitutes and predators.
One of the men taken down
in the sting works at a boys
camp, Dey said. Another is a
firefighter in Naples.
Arrested in the' prostitution
sting were:
Abraham Jackson, Tampa,
possession of marijuana and
destroying evidence.
Marcie Michelle Anstead,
Tampa, soliciting prostitution.
Amber Lynn Mitchell, Tulsa,
Okla., soliciting prostitution.

Free Holiday Meal


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Doesn't a free Thanksgiving
dinner sound amazing?
Well, this year NU-HOPE
Elder Care Services Inc. is pro-
viding a complimentary
Thanksgiving meal to adults 60
and over.
NU-HOPE is a non-profit
organization funded through
grants, fundraisers and dona-
tions.

it can.
NU-HOPE has been hosting
this free Thanksgiving meal to
its in-house guests for the past
two years. This year will be the
first time it will be open to the
public, thanks to director Ingra
Gardner.
This event originally was


started to show appreciation to
senior citizens and to let them
know that someone cares. It
also gives seniors time to
socialize with people they may
not see very often.
Apart from the meal they
will be receiving, there will also
be some sort of activities and
entertainment for the senior cit-
izens.
NU-HOPE is able to host this
free dinner because of a federal
grant given to it under the Older
American Act.

Tuesday, Nov. 22, at 11:30 a.m.

Accident Victims Need Help


Our thoughts, prayers and
hearts go out to the eight people,
Olivia, Edward, Jacob, Zachary,
Noah and Grace Coronado,
Rigo Rodriguez and Adrian
Rodriguez (no kin) who were
coming home from a youth con-
vention in'Fort Myers Saturday,
Nov. 6,20 11.
These were part of the youth
group from St. Michael Catholic
Church. These, wonderful
Christian people were hit head
on by a drunk driver who was
going the wrong way with no
lights, license.
That mistake cost young
Adrian his life, and sent the oth-
ers to the hospital. As of this
date, everyone but Zachary has
been released. Zachary has a.
fractured spine. He is hoping to
come home for the funeral for
Adrian.
I would like to tell you how
proud I am that I live in this
wonderful county. We all should
be thankful for our neighbors.
My heart is overjoyed with the


support of everyone. Hardee
County Youth Football League

along with the donations and
the monies from you have
helped these families tremen-
dously. Our community is a'
blessing to have.
SPlease continue to pray for
these families, and the friends
of young Adrian. Also keep the
youth of St. Michael Catholic
Church in your hearts and
prayers as they are still dealing
with this as well.

driving right at the Coronado
van in the center lane.
Coronado had just gone through
a slight right-hand curve to find
a vehicle coming at him in the
center lane.

ing Gonzalez. were transported

tals.

were 10, 11 or 14 years old.
"Hopefully, they and others like
them will always meet up with
an undercover law enforcement
officer instead," the major said.
Dey noted this is the first
time the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office has conducted
such a sting. He said it is highly
labor intensive, with officers
from different agencies coming
to assist. Grant funding helps
cover the expenses, he said.
Officers were "chatting" with
10 or 11 men at the same time,
he described. "And we just
touched the surface," he added.
"Full-time, we were talking
with people wanting to do per-
verted things to young girls,"
Dey. said. "It was unbelievably
graphic, disgusting."
Dey said when the men
showed up for the meet, officers
greeted them instead, immedi-
ately taking them into a room in
the house and interviewing
them.
Some admitted their inten-
tions, other did not.
Dey said statistics show both

"Parents should monitor who
their children are talkirig to

John Talley's Filling Station In College Hill Remembered


Built in 1926, Talley's filling
station was the hub of activity in
the community of College Hill.
It was owned and operated by
Mr. John, and his wife, "Miss
Sydney," with the assistance of
their children. Their daughter,
Alice, usually assisted them
most.
Weatherworn, old, and dilapi-
dated now, it sits in mute testi-
mony of it's glory days as a pris-
tine white, approximately 12x24
foot wooden building. It sits
about four miles west of Bow-
ling Green, at the junction of the
road that leads to Fort Green
going west and College Hill Rd.
going south.
The gasoline pump was locat--
ed just in front of the roofed area
as you faced the station. It was
probably 10 feet tall with a glass
bulb on top. I can still see Alice
pushing that hand pump back
and forth to get gas out of the
underground tank up into that
bulb. It had black measurement
lines so that you would know
how many gallons of gas you
were getting.
There was also a tank holding
kerosene. Keep in mind that this
was before we were blessed
with electricity, and people
needed the kerosene for their oil
lamps.
Gas was 25 cent a gallon, and
bread was 10 cents a loaf. We'd
pick strawberries all morning
for 2-1/2 cents a quart, and work
until we made maybe 60 or 70
cents. That money would burn a
hole in our pocket until we
could get to the station and get a
strawberry NeHi, and a Baby
Ruth, which cost a nickel each.
Entry to the station was
through double-wide screen
doors, one step up off the con-
crete frontage, onto a wooden
plank floor. On the left, right in
front of you, was the bright red
Coca Cola box with the bottle


cap remover attachment on the
right front side. Big chunks of
ice kept the peach, grape and
strawberry NeHis icy cold,
along with the Grapettes and
Coca Colas. Gladys Albritton
always drank Delaware
Punches.
Floor to ceiling shelves lined
the walls. On the right was a
long counter extending to the
back, with just walking room
behind it. On that counter sat
glass jars with lids that held all
kinds of enticing penny can-
dies. Peppermint sticks, suckers
in every flavor, Tootsie Pops,
Jawbreakers, etc. And then....
came the boxes holding nickel
size Baby Ruths, Snickers and
Mr. Goodbars. Also, of course,
was Wrigley's Chewing Gum. I
would buy a box of Cracker
Jacks just to get the useless
prize that came in it, even
though I didn't like caramel
popcorn.
Down on the business end of
the counter was a big white
weighing scale. A spool of
twine string was rigged up to
the ceiling so that it was easy to
pull off just the amount that was
needed. In those days, very lit-
tle was prepackaged. If you
wanted three pounds of sugar, it
was dipped out of a large con-
tainer into a brown paper sack,
weighed on the scale, the top-
folded down carefully, and tied
neatly with the twine string. It
was very efficient!
A big refrigerator that ran on
kerosene stood against the wall
by the back door. It held a big
round of cheese and had big
logs of baloney (bologna).
Occasionally, Miss Sydney
would fill the ice trays with her
homemade ice cream.
She would trade us kids a
cube of .that ice cream for two
or three eggs. Before we left
home, we'd go out to the hen


nests, lift the hens, and head for
the station. The ice cream was
more icy than creamy, but deli-
cious on a hot day. Miss Sydney
always wore an apron over her
cotton dresses, and a see-thru
fine mesh hairnet.
Mr. John wore long sleeved
shirts, glasses, and usually
indoors or out, had on a black
hat. He drove a blue pickup
truck. When you ordered your
"baloney," he'd spread brown
butcher paper on the wooden
counter, throw the big roll of
baloney on it, pull out an enor-
mous butcher knife that he
would wipe with a rag, and cut
off the amount people asked for.
He would place the paper and
meat on the scale, wrap it in
what he had cut it on, and tie it
with the twine.
Shelves on the left wall held
all kinds of patent medicines.
Iron tonics, Vicks Salve,
aspirin, and bottles of Lydia E.
Pinkham (which was supposed
to cure anything peculiar to
women). I think that was dis-
continued after it was published
that it was almost 100% alco-
hol.
Women's products were dis-
creetly wrapped in the brown
butcher paper and placed on a
high shelf. Sweet peach snuff,
along with pipe tobacco and red
cans of Prince Albert and ciga-
rettes, had a special shelf.
School supplies were in a
section of their own. Fountain
pens (this was before ball-
points), bottles of ink, composi-
tion books and Blue Horse
tablets. And pencils, you had a
choice, five that didn't write
very well and had a little nub of
an eraser on the end, or two nice
yellow No. 2 pencils with a red
rubber eraser for a nickel.
Imagine a Walmart and Circle
K combined into a very small
space.

John Talley Filing Station closed in 1957.


Most families did their main
grocery shopping in town on
Saturday, but there was always
something needed during the
week, maybe a bottle of vanilla
flavoring. They had it. I don't
ever remember the station being
closed. It was open seven days a
week before that became a
widespread practice. Stores in
town would close on
Wednesday afternoons and all
day Sunday, but you could
count on Talley's Station being
open.
An interesting "extra" that I
remember was a skeleton of a
critter (Possum?) in a very nice
glass and wooden case, dis-
played proudly on one of the
shelves. Wendell Witt had
killed, boiled the meat off and
wired the bones back together
as a project for one of his high
school Science classes. He also
built the case that it was in. The
whole thing was of museum
quality. Wendell was very tal-
ented.
Talley's Station served the 50
or 60 families in the strawberry


and vegetable growing commu-
nity, not only their commercial
needs but socially as well. Their
house was not attached to the
station, but it was just a few
steps away. Comfortable rock-
ing chairs were on the front
porch.
While the men would all
gather in the station to listen to
the radio on big fight nights
(boxing was the national craze,
Joe Louis wag champion of the
world), their wives would sit on
the front porch of the Talley
house and catch up on the news.
The young'uns would be run-
ning around in the side yard or
playing shuffleboard on a strip
of concrete.
Not only did Mr. John have
the station, he grew strawber-
ries too. There were seven chil-
dren in the Talley family, Anna
Mae, Murdoch, Alice, Estelle,
J.D., Myrtle and Rosalee. The
station closed in 1957, and
Mama and Papa and all the chil-
dren but Alice and Myrtle are
now deceased.
Alice has always been a hard


worker. She picked strawber-
ries, worked in the station, and
took care of the household. She
was always on the move. In the
1960's she worked as a nurse at
the Palmetto Clinic. She would.
also go to neighbors houses and
take their blood pressure, if they
needed it.
She married a Yankee from
Michigan. He owned rental
property in Michigan. They
lived here most of the year. She
would go with him to Michigan
for a few weeks in the summer.
Alice is a born caregiver. She
took loving care of her Papa
and Mama until the end. She's
little, after a good soak, she still
probably wouldn't weigh a hun-
dred pounds, and at 91 years of
age, she reminds me of the
EverReady Bunny, she just
keeps going and going and
going. .. .

Open House Shows New Use

For Ausley Memorial Building


Congratulations to the Hardee Wildcats in their achievement as
district runner-up in football. The playoffs begin Nov. 18, when
Hardee will travel to play Lake Wales. The final regular-season
game at Fort Pigpce his 'Friday will be a good tune-up against stiff
competition. "-*' -

Speaking of football, we are saddened to hear of the death
Sunday of Youth Football Midgets player Adrian Rodriguez, who
was among several youth and parents returning from a weekend
church activity when their van was hit by a drunk driver. Our hearts
go out to his family and our prayers are for the rest of the young
people and adults injured in the accident.
The Hardee Youth Football League is trying to assist the fami-
lies with fundraisers for funeral and medical expenses. Eddie
Coronado is a coach and Olivia Coronado is one of the team moms.
She and Noah Coronado and Rodrigo Rodriguez have been
released from the hospital, but Zachary Coronado is still at Tampa
General Hospital. Donations for these families can be sent to the
HYFL at P.O. Box 2535, FL 33873.

On a brighter note, the Hardee Junior High football team went
undefeated again, for the third consecutive season, and fourth
Heartland Conference championship. Congratulations to Coach
Mark Carlton and his assistants West Palmer, Jason Clark and
Gerry Lindsey. The season ended with a 30-6 win over DeSoto on
Nov. 1.
There will be a HJHS Wildcat golf scramble on Saturday,
beginning with an 8:30 a.m. shotgun start. A lite breakfast and
lunch will be served. Cost is $200 for a four-person team. Hole
sponsors can also help. To still get in on it, contact Amy Jernigan
,at the junior high, 773-3147, ext. 2126.

All fall sports are over except cross country. The boys team and
two girls advance to regionals this weekend.
Volleyball ended with a district championship and a loss to
Titusville in the quarterfinal round of the regionals.
Golf ended at the regional level for Will Bennett and the girls
team.
Junior high softball ended with a conference championship.
Four swimmers ended the season at the regional competition
last week.

Now it's time to look to winter sports.
The boys and girls soccer teams were very helpful during the
girls volleyball as it hosted district and regionals. The soccer fel-
lows and girls manned the concession stand so parents could watch
their daughters play, while other soccer players filled the seats and
cheered for the volleyball girls.

Girls and boys basketball are starting. The girls begin on
Monday at home with a visit from Frostproof. On Tuesday, the var-
sity and JV girls go to Sebring. The JV plays at 6 p.m. and the var-
sity immediately afterward, about 7:30 p.m.
Boys hoops don't start until after Thanksgiving and is still miss-
ing-several players from the football' team.
The only other winter sport is girls weightlifting. We don't have
a starting date or team for that yet.

In boxing, Daniel Lozano's pro fight scheduled for this Friday
night has been cancelled. He will have to defend the title he recent-
ly won within three months, by January.

In bowling, a local team, which practices at Bowl of Fun lanes
placed in the U.S. B.C.'s Women's National Championship
Tournament in Syracuse. Sue Streeter, Gail Crews and Judy "J.R."
Rowe were joined by a couple of friends from Indiana for this toar-
ney. Congrats, ladies.
Information from conlmunity and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at news.heral-
dadvocate@emhbarqmail.com with news for this biweekly column.

Baseban is like a poker game. Nobody wants to quit
when he's losing; nobody wants you to quit when you're
ahead.

What was once the city's
Ausley Memorial Library will
officially become the Wauchula
SGrden Club's clubhouse today
(Thursday).
It is located on the corner of
Eighth Avenue and Palmetto
Street, at 131 N. Eighth Ave.,
and members of the 73-year-old
club are inviting the community
to witness the results of the ren-
ovation and the grounds from 4
until 6 p.m. Refreshments will
be served.
The building, erected in
1949, is located on the city-
owned tract where the former
Wauchula Garden Club build-
ing was situated until it was
destroyed by the hurricanes of
2004. The original clubhouse
was built in 1955, when mem-
bers of the Garden Club
approached Wauchula City
Council members about enclos-
ing a little-used pavilion on the
property. They received permis-
sion to enclose it and make it
their clubhouse.
No longer used by the
library or the Hardee Help
Center, since both have found
new and larger locations, the
Ausley Memorial building
Danger breeds best on too
much confidence.

HJHS 'Cats Champs Again


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald Advocate
()\\', It ni\er Cets old.
The I.IllS Iirdee Wildcats
haI\c done it agaiiin. a fourth con-
scuti\e Ileartland Conference
championshipp. third consecu-
tihe undefeated season and
22nd conM',ecutive victory.'
Lead Coach Mark Carlton
,as upbeat as he provided some
of the statistics for the Hardee
Junior High School football
team. "The team scored 194
points and gave up 28 points in
our six games this season. The
team's overall Grade Point
Average for the first nine-weeks
grading period is 3.0," com-
mented Carltbn, who is also
Dean of Students. The team's
last loss was in September 2008
against Sebring.
"This team has worked hard-
er, come farther, and overcome
more than just about any team.
I've been around. I am so proud
of the way this group stayed
together, stepped up when they
were challenged and stayed
focused, continued Carlton.
"We've been pretty success-
ful around here for the past few
years and there are a whole lot


of folks who contribute to our
success. It starts with the kids:
they have to come in and be
ready to outwork the competi-
lion. be good students and good
citizens.
"Then. there are the parents.
who have the nearly thankless
job of picking up kids from
practices and games, supporting
and encouraging them through
the grind of practices and the
glory of games," added Carlton
"Our school staff and admin-
istration are great supporters of
our student athletes and the ath-
letic department. We are grate-
ful to have a School Board and
Superintendent who continue to
support junior high athletics
and the positive impact athletics
has on our school,
"Finally, it is a blessing to be
supported by a group of coach-
es (West Palmer, Jason Clark
and Gerry Lindsey) who are
very good at what they do and
are as interested in developing
good citizens as they are in
developing good players," con-
cluded Carlton.
Offensive coordinator Palmer
gave a rundown of the final
game of the season, a 30-6 win


over DeSoto. The coaches
chose the whole team as players
of the week.
"We were very impressed
with what this team has accom-
plished. This game was for the
Heartland Conference champi-
onship and they came out and
beat a very physically gifted
team in big fashion. We are
looking forward to seeing what
these eighth graders accomplish
in the future." said Palmer.
Alejandro Rodriguez and
Alex Hinojosa put the points on
the board for Hardee. Rod-
rigues began it with a 17-yard
TD reception from quarterback
Marco DeLeon. Hino-josa ran
in the two-point conversion.
Rodriguez also got the next TD.
a 5-yard catch from DeLeon.
with Omar Alamia carrying the
two-pointer into the end zone.
Hinojosa added a 10-yard run
and Rodriguez finished it with a
12-yard snare from DeLeon.
Willie Baker ran in the conver-
sion score.
Rodriguez had 34 receiving
yards and three touchdowns.
Hinojosa had 59 yards rushing
on 10 carries with one TD and a
two-point conversion. He also

tunity.
Both teams have quite a few
starters back from last season,

cer leagues and pre-season con-
ditioning that included a team.

University coach and team.
"With new uniforms and
increased skill level, the team

Hardee finished up prepara-
tion for the district meet last
week with an Oct. 27 trip to
Avon Par.k Invitations, in which
four Hardee boys set new per-

For the girls. usual leader
Febe Murillo was out nursing a

Veronica Rivera at 29:22 and
Adriana Arroyo close behind at
29:35.
The 'Cats took their 36-2

pionships at Lakewood Ranch

Moralez missed being district

His 17:01.23 was 83 hun-
dredths behind Miguel Casiano
of Lehigh High School. Two
more Lehigh runners came in

Wildcat Beatty. fifth at
18:33.03. Ancelmo. with a 12th

23:40.85.
Solis placed seventh of the 20
runners participating and also
earned a trip to regionals.
Rivera's time did not get her on
to the regionals.


Greetings from Fort Green!
Since we are further north
than Wauchula, it was probably
colder here this Sunday morn-
ing! This kind of weather
makes some people feel more
like working and some like just
getting comfortable with a good
book!
The Methodist Cemetery is in
great shape. We sincerely ap-
preciate Charles Abbott for
mowing all the area outside the
fence and putting out herbicide
inside the fence. Randy Davis
usually keeps the inside mowed
well and Cline Albritton burned
all the debris that was piled
from our last workday. We real-
ly thank these fellows for their
labor of love. Beside Cline
burning the debris, he mowed
back of the Fort Green church
so there would be plenty of
room for the Fall Festival. He is
quite a guy!
Mary and Earl Bargeron
returned home from their trip to
North Carolina last Sunday
afternoon. On the way home
they stopped in Waldo to attend.
a gospel sing. Greg and Shuree
Rawls and one of Gregg's quar-
tet members, Julian and his
wife, joined them for the sing
Friday and Saturday nights.
They all enjoyed the music and
being together.
They made it home Sunday
night for the firth Sunday sing
at Fort Green. The chili cookoff


was a success. Fort Green will
have some good cooks for some
time as most all the winners
were young: Kaleb Terry and
Mike Davis were the first-place
winners but Hunter Davis,
Russell Terry and Brody Waters
placed.
Sharon and Tom Lynn missed
church Sunday morning as they
attended their granddaughter's
wedding in Dover. The groom
was Gwen Albritton's grand-
son. They had a good time.
Mildred Cooper was taking a
cold Sunday and did not feel
like attending church. Betty
Walker was planning on com-
ing to church but Chrysta
Chancey, her daughter, said her
sugar was not right but had
improved when Chrysta called
between Sunday School and
church. Lila Blink was able to
attend services at Fort Green
and everyone was glad to see
her. Edith Bassett has been able
to attend services for the past
couple of Sundays but still has
her arm in a sling.
John Dickinson is improving
after his recent surgery. Jewel
Nobles English remains on our
prayer lista,a .,does Sgt. Eddie
Coronado andt his family as
they were in a serious auto acci-
dent over the weekend. Shelia
Miller and' Dawn Day are tak-
ing treatment for their big "C"
illness. Randi Sasser will have
some procedures this week, so


there are lots of our folks in
need of prayer.
Some Hardee folks had good
suppers last Saturday night. The
foundation members for the
local 4-H Clubs had their annu-
il fundraiser. The chicken and
pulled-pork dinners were super
good. The men outdid them-
selves on cooking. We really
appreciate everyone who sup-
ported this worthwhile project.
The Fort Green church is
looking for a lift chair but we
need the one that is oversized
and, of course, would like to get
a used one at a reasonable price,
so if you know of anyone who
no longer needs theirs, please
let me know.
With the time changing
everyone will be awake earlier
than usual but then it is dark
before most get home from
work! I wish they would leave
it one way, but believe it or not
the government does not ask
my opinion!
The three Taylor children,
one of whom is Mabel Wil-
liamson, had a family reunion
last weekend at the home of
Mabel and James. There were
55 in attendance for a sit-down
dinner. They enjoyed the good
food and the catching up that
goes with a family reunion, and
they all enjoyed seeing one
another as some came from out
of town. A good time was had
by all!
We had two visitors on Oct.,
31 and I don't believe their
grandparents would have recog-
nized them. One was dressed as
a jester and the other was a
hunter, and only their .yes
showed for identification. They
had to tell me they were Blake
and Allie. If they disguised their
voices you were out of luck.
James Youmans got a big
buck while hunting in Georgia.
Please remember to pray for
one another, the military and
our nation.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
God says, "I have carried
you since you were born; I
have taken care of you from
your birth. Even' when you
are old, I will b6 the same.
Even when your hair has
turned gray, I will take care
of you. I made you and will
take care of you. I will carry
you and save you."
Isaiah 46:3b-4 (NCV)
FRIDAY
So Jejus said to the Jews
who believed in Him, "If you
are faithful to what I have
said, you are truly My disci-
ples. And you will know the
truth and the truth will set
you free. ... Every man who
commits sin is a slave to sin.
... If the Son, then, sets you
free, you are really free of it.
... The man who is born of
God can hear the words of
God, and the reason why
you cannot is simply, that
you are not sons of God."
John 8:31,34b,38,47 (PME)
SATURDAY
You're blessed when you
stay on course, walking
steadily on the road re-
vealed by God. You're
blessed when you follow His
directions, doing your best
to find Him. That's right -
you don't go off on your
own, you walk straight along
the road He set.
Psalm 119:1-3 (ME)
SUNDAY
So when they (the disciples)
had come together, they


asked Jesus, "Lord, will you
at this time restore the king-
dom? ... He said to them, "It
is not for you to know times
or seasons, which the Father
(God) has fixed by His own
authority."
Acts 1:6-7 (RSV)
MONDAY
The man who knows right
from wrong, and has good
judgment and common
sense is happier than the
man who is immensely rich.
For such wisdom is more
,valuable than precious jew-
els.
Proverbs 3:13-14 (TLB)
TUESDAY
And may our Lord Jesus
Christ Himself and God our
Father, who has shown us-
such love, and in His grace,
has given us unfailing en-
couragement and such
bright hope, still encourage
and fortify you for every
good deed and word.
//II Thessalonians 2:16 (NEB)
WEDNESDAY
Then Solomon said, "0 Lord
God of Israel, there is no
God like You in heaven
above or on earth below --
You who keep Your cov-
enant of love with Your ser-
vants who continue whole-
heartedly in Your ways."
I Kings 8:23 (NIV))

Peace River Explorations you've heard the name or seen
the abbreviation PRE. So, what is it?
It is a group of local residents who got the idea of and are
devoted to promoting Hardee County's many resources to attract
visitors here. Our county boasts a rich history, the scenic Peace
River, and is located in what is termed "Bone Valley," which means
lots of fossil hunting.
I am the coordinator for our group. We invite you to join us in
our efforts. You can check out our website at idighardee.com, e-
mail us at info@peaceriverexplorations.com or call us at 767-9999.
Plans are to use the historic Wauchula Train Depot for a wel-
come and information center. It will feature a gallery displaying
local art and will serve as the primary link to educate visitors about
the area. Information would be available concerning canoe rental,
fossil excursions, local attractions, and any upcoming events.
We're excited about the opportunities this could bring to our
county!
Here's an example of the interesting facts and finds Hardee
County has to offer. This column will feature these highlights, and
we invite you to read on!
MANATEES
Manatees. You'll find them in droves downriver in Charlotte


Harbor or west where there's a county and a couple of rivers named
after them. But here?
It doesn't take much paddling around these parts and peering
down into the water before you spot veritable fields of black ribs
masquerading as stones on the riverbed the aftermath of some
barbecue, it would seem.
Then, displaying your find to someone in the know, you learn
that Hardee County was once a hotbed of these "sea cows" mil-
lions upon millions of years before our kind came this way.
Dugongs, sirens, underwater elephants, we are told. One scratches
one's head. Strange ... but such familiar, friendly critters!
However did Al Capp find out about them? (Better ask
Grampa Google who Al Capp was.) Prehistoric shmoos! No doubt
about it, and oh how we need them these days!

Cats Claw Bulldogs


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats are
playoff bound after securing the
District 10 runner-up spot by
beating the DeSoto Bulldogs
42-6 on Senior Night.
The 'Cats will wrap up the
regular season with a long road
trip to Fort Pierce Central
Friday before traveling to Lake
Wales on Nov. 18 for the first
round of the Class 5A playoffs.
The Hardee defense set the
tone early in last week's game
as Keonte Holley recovered a
Bulldog fumble at the 13-yard
line just two plays into the
game.
The offense came on and
senior quarterback Colby Baker
found classmate Deonte Evans
open in the end zone for a 20-
yard score with 9:41 left in the
first quarter. The Octavio Al-
varez PAT was good and the
Cats led 7-0.
DeSoto started the next drive
from its 25-yard line and picked
up one fist down before the
Wildcat defense forced another
fumble, this one recovered by
James Greene.
A 22-yard pass from Baker to
senior Justin Knight took the


ball down to the I-yard line for
a first-and-goal. Senior Andrew
Hooks punched it in two plays
later with a 2-yard run over the
left guard. Alvarez was good on
the PAT and it was 14-0 with
4:22 left in the first quarter.
The Bulldogs made it 14-6
with 2:06 left in the half on an
18-yard touchdown pass. The
two-point try was unsuccessful.
Whatever momentum
DeSoto gained quickly disap-
peared when Hooks took the
ensuing kickoff and raced 90-
yards for a touchdown. The
Alvarez PAT made it 21-6 with
1:45 left in the second quarter.
Hardee received to start the
second half and was forced to a
three-and-out and punted back
to DeSoto. The Cats' defense
held its ground and forced a
Bulldog punt.
The Wildcats couldn't pick
up a first down and once again
punted back to the Dogs.
DeSoto moved the ball into
Hardee territory and began
threatening to score.
A Bulldog receiver got
behind the defense and was
wide open in the end zone but
the would be touchdown pass

game because Hjardee led by
more than 35 points.
Second-year Head Coach
Buddy Martin told his team
after the game how proud he
was of them and how happy he
is to be going to the playoffs
and beating the Bulldogs.
Fort Pierce is a larger school,
is in class 7A and has a 6-1
record for the year.
Martin has made it to the


playoffs in each of his first two
seasons as head coach. His
focus now will be on getting his
team as healthy as possible and
ready for Lake Wales and a run
into the playoffs.
Depending how the game
goes Friday., some starters could
see limited action against Fort
Pierce so they will be fresh and
rested for the playoffs the fol-
lowing week.

The hardy alumni of Hardee High
School from the dual decades of the
1950s and '60s opened umbrellas
and their hearts Oct. 28-29 as they
descended on downtown Wauchula
despite dampening rains. Organi-
zers quickly moved, altered or can-
celed activities to work the fun
around the raindrops, succeeding in
salvaging a successful reunion for
the 20 classes involved. It was rock
'n' roll, reminiscing and raising
funds all weekend long! Here, world-
renowned artist and HHS grad
Wayne Hovis is shown with Oneita
Revell after his painting was auc-
tioned off to raise money for
Resthaven. Florida Fence Post Co.
placed the winning bid at $2,000.
Below, organizers Jerold Knight and
Sue Bryan Jackson take a break from
their labors to partake in some of the
action. Cookbooks of '50s and '60s
favorites remain on sale, and feature
Hovis' painting of the old Hardee
High School building on the cover.
All the proceeds go to Resthaven.

When it comes to remodeling

cause you may need a permit. If
making minor changes that
won't significantly alter infra-
structure and systems, you may
not need one. If making major
improvements, such as re-
wiring, new plumbing and con-
struction or demolition, you
will need a permit. Even if you
think you don't need a permit to
remodel your bathroom, be sure
to check with the Board of
County Commissioners before
you start any work.

A friend knows the song in
my heart and sings it to me
when my memory fails.

Why do people think artists
are special? It's just an-
other job.
-Andy Warhol
First they ignore you, then
they ridicule you, then they
fight you, and then you win.

over two inches of precipitation.
Field Crops: Statewide, soil moisture supplies were rated
mostly adequate. More rainfall is needed in the Panhandle area.
Peanut harvesting was nearing completion in Jackson County.
Peanut harvest was 94 percent complete compared with 96 com-
pleted by this date last year. The five-year average of peanuts har-
vested by this date was 91 percent. Cotton harvesting was more
than 50 percent complete in most Panhandle areas. Recent rains
delayed sugarcane harvesting around Lake Okeechobee.
Fruit & Vegetables: Clear weather allowed vegetable produc-
ers to advance field work and harvesting. In Homestead, avocadoes
were shipped. Sweet corn growers in central Peninsula areas pre-
dicted harvesting to begin within two weeks. Miami-Dade County
growers continued to cut okra. Tomato harvesting continued with
the harvesting slowing seasonally around Quincy. Producers mar-
keted very light supplies of snap beans, cucumbers, eggplant, bell
peppers, and squash.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition
ranged from mostly very poor to excellent with 55 percent in good
condition. Drought was the first limiting factor to forage growth,
but colder temperatures, flooding, and insect damage also hurt the
condition of pasture. The cattle condition ranged from poor to

excellent with 65 percent in good condition. In the Panhandle, pas-
tures were very poor to excellent with most poor to fair. Cool tem-
peratures at night and light frost have stopped growth of summer
grasses. Winter forage has good stands in areas where field prepa-
ration, planting, and precipitation coincided. The cattle were in fair
to good condition. Cattle are being fed hay and supplements. In the
northern area, pasture condition ranged from very poor to good.
Light frost and drought have limited forage, quality and growth. In
the central areas, pasture condition ranged from poor to excellent
with most in good condition. The condition of forage was above
average for this time of year. In the southwest area, pasture condi-
tion ranged from very poor to excellent with most in good condi-
tion. There was some flooding of low lying pastures in
Okeechobee. Lee. Hendry, and Glades counties. The condition of
the cattle ranged from fair to excellent with most in good condition.
Citrus: Highs this week were in the lower to mid-80s, with early
morning lows ranging from the unper 40s to upper 50s. There was
widely variable rainfall this week, hangingg from just over four inch-
es to trace amounts. Immokalee received the most rainfall with
4.06 inches. Overall, there were normal moisture conditions in the
citrus-producing region. Thirty-six packinghouses and seven
processors have opened, with more scheduled to open this week.
Varieties being packed included early oranges (Navel,
Ambersweet, and Hamlin), white and colored grapefruit, and
Fallglo tangerines. Cultural practices included herbicide and fertil
izer applications, tree removal, new tree planting, and irrigation.

He Took His Red Ryder


BB-Gun Everywhere!

By LANCE McCRAY .'-,
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Mr. Robert Ray Smith was born on
March 22, 1927, in Bowling Green. He
grew up in a big family; there were six
children in his family. There were two. -
older brothers, one sister and two
younger siblings. ,
When he was young and didn't have
work to do, he would hunt rabbits for
fun.
Mr. Smith attended Torrey
Elementary School through the fifth
grade, then moved on to Lemon Grove
and Strawberry School. Mr. Smith's
parents weren't strict or mean, but he
says you had to mind.
His first job was breaking colts. His
first vehicle was a 1949 Ford Coupe. It couR-EsYpHoT
was traded RobeOURTESY Ray SmithPHO

, twt through a

'1 after work-


ing for them for many years.
Mr. Smith happily married Deloris
Taylor in 1953 here in Hardee County
at the First Baptist Church.
The person that had the most influ-
ence on Mr. Smith and helped develop
his morals was Doyle Carlton. I asked
Mr. Smith if he thought kids today were
being taught good morals. He respond-
ed no. There is way too much cursing
and kids today need to be taught more
respect for others.
Also, with all the technological
advances, Mr. Smith thinks that kids
who take advantage of them will have it
better off. "It's definitely not a bad
thing."
What was your favorite subject in
school? Mr. Smith's favorite subject in
school was math. He is a numbers man.
The one thing that Mr. Smith fears
most for kids today, in school or out, is
that they don't pay enough attention to
the Constitution. The best advice Mr.
Smith could give a young adult would
be to stay in school, be all you can be
and obtain as much knowledge as possi-
ble.
As a child were you involved with
any cattle or livestock? Mr. Smith has
been around cattle ever since he was a

Swimmers Out At Regionals


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee High's four swim-
mers' that went to regional com-
petition found it extremely dif-
ficult.
That's possibly an understate-
ment as juniors Wyatt Kofke
and Will Crawford and sophs
Garrett Albritton and Leah
Weeks quickly realized. None
were able to get out of the pre-
liminary rounds in their events.
There are 41 schools in Class
1A Region 2 and a good many
of them had at least one swim-
mer participating. Included
were Pine School of Stuart,
Trinity Prep of Winter Park,
Cocoa Beach, Titusville Astro-
naut, Fort Pierce Lincoln Park,
Holy Trinity Episcopal of Mel-
bourne, West Shore of Mel-
bourne, Merritt Island Edge-
wood, Lake Highland Prep of
Orlando, St. Edward's of Vero
Beach, Rockledge, Satellite
Beach, All Saints' Academy of
Winter Haven, Monteverde
Academy and Lake Wales.
Also, Windemere Prep,
Cocoa Beach, Florida Air
Academy, Lake Placid, Lake


Nona of Orlando, Fort Pierce
John Carroll, Benjamin of
North Palm Beach, Lake Mary
Prep, Lakeland Santa Fe
Catholic, Orlando Bishop
Moore, West Palm Beach
Cardinal Newman, Cocoa,
Lakeland Christian, Oasis
Christian of Winter Haven,
Mulberry, Avon Park and
Frostproof.
There were two dozen com-
petitors in most of the events at
the Region 2 meet at Lake
Highland Prep Aquatic Com-
plex on Saturday.
Kofke did the best, placing
19th in both of his events, the
200 freestyle and 100 back-
stroke. Crawford was 24th in
his 500 freestyle.
Albritton placed 19th in the
100 freestyle and 21st in the 50
free, while Weeks placed 23rd
in both the 500 free and 200
free.
They will anchor next year's
squad with the district and
regional experience they have
had. Hardee loses only two girls
to graduation, Korin Roehm
and Savannah Hagans.
For the boys squad, expected

child. His family first raised Red Devon
and then converted to Brahma.
Mr. Smith was raised to be tough, but
he says that a fear he will never over-
come is his fear of snakes. Mr. Smith
and his family did fish on Paynes Creek
for just about anything but gar. They
also noodled for catfish. He's hunted
just about everything, but started out
hunting squirrels with his Red Ryder
BB-gun.
Were times easier or harder when you
were a child as compared to now? If
anything, times are harder now, much
harder, says Mr. Smith.
Did you have anything that you col-
lected as a child? As a child Mr. Smith
didn't collect anything much at all. He
didn't have much time on his hands; he
was too busy to collect.
What was your most valued object
growing up? As a child Mr. Smith's
most valued object to him was his BB-
gun. He took it everywhere. Was there
anything that was handed down to you?
Mr. Smith was handed down to him his
grandfather's guns through his father.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each stu-
dent is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragementto
the students and for the enjoyment of
our readers.

Typhoons are a terror to pilots. A
veteran pilot was asked, "What's
the secret of flying in them?"
'Turning the typhoon into a
tailwind." he answered.
Violent storms come into all our
lives. They can blow us from the
Lord or to Him They can trip us or
speed us on our way.
St. Paul experienced one. He
was arrested, beaten and jailed.
But he sang, he didn't sigh. He
witnessed, he didn't whine. The
Philippian jailer and his household
got converted. Soon Paul estab-
lished the first church in Europe.
Why don't you turn your typhoon
into a tailwind and speed the
gospel on its way!

SNovember 11,1919, PresidentWilson
proclaimed the first Armistice Day with the
following words: "To us in America, the reflections
of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride
in the heroism of those who died in the country's
service and with gratitude for the victory, both
because of the thing from which it has freed us and
because of the opportunity it has given America
to show her sympathy with peace and justice in
the councils of the nations." This Veterans Day, let
us be inspired by those who sacrifice for us as we
remember those we have lost.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football fans, the game of the year is in the books. It was
a classic defensive game. Not one touchdown was scored in this
epic game. The overtime did make it a little more dramatic. LSU is
hailed for its defense but if they have to play Oklahoma St. for the
National Championship beware LSU fans. West Virginia put up
533 total yards of offense against LSU, the same Dana Holgerson
offense he put in at Houston and Oklahoma St. The Cowboys run
it even more efficiently. Alabama only had 295 yards versus LSU.
The Tide, unlike West Virginia, does play defense though.
The Gators have improved to 5-4. A win over Furman is nec-
essary for any low level bowl this year. If they finish 6-6, would it
be Liberty or Music City Bowl? Maybe another win over FSU
would make it New Year's Day.
Conference realignment is still a hot topic in college football.
Missouri to the SEC is now rumored to happen this week. West
Virginia filed a lawsuit to leave the Big East despite the 27-month
notice clause. The Big East has countersued. Conference USA and
the Mountain West are discussing an alliance of their conferences.
Pitt and Syracuse have joined the ACC but their fate is tied to the
27- month lawsuit as well.
USF found another way to lose at Rutgers. Leading 17-3 with
7 minutes to play, the Bulls gave up a 98-yard kickoff return for a
touchdown and then allowed a long pass for a touchdown. For
good measure, the Bulls missed the winning field goal, allowing
Rutgers to kick it in overtime. A bowl game looks very remote at
this time for the Bulls.
Now let's Look at this week's Bill 0' Fare ...

- Pet OfiTheAiWeek-


Chantilly, a female and Brut, a male, are both adult
Chihuahuas. They have short coats and weight 8
pounds.
Chantilly and Brut came into the shelter together, and
we are looking for a home where they can continue
their partnership. They both are housebroken and get
along with other animals. Come to the shelter and see
Tracy for special pricing on this cute pair.
Adoption fees are $45 and include a rabies vaccination and spaying or
neutering of the animal. Contact 773-2320 if you are interested in adopt-
ing any cats or dogs that desperately need a loving.home. The kennel
location is 685 Airport Road, Wauchula, at the county landfill.


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

75 YEARS AGO
The Wauchula Wildcats will
celebrate Homecoming tonight
at 8 when they face the strong
Winter Haven Blue Devils in a
South Florida Conference
game. Coming off a 20-6 drub-
bing by the Bradenton Golden
Wave, Wauchula hopes to con-
tinue its dominance of Winter
Haven, having won eight of 10
of the games played since 1925
when the teams first met.

Mayor S.E. Ausley an-
nounced this week that building
at the farmers wholesale market
here will begin with construc-
tion of an office and a packing
house. There are plans for three
more packing houses in the
coming weeks.

The Royal Theatre will show
on Sunday and Monday
"Ramona," the 20th Century
Fox picture in the newly per-
fected Technicolor, featuring
Loretta Young and Don
Ameche in the lead roles.

Crews'. Grocery features
onions three pounds for 10
cents; tall crisp bunches of cel-
ery for 10 cents; grits or meal,
four pounds for 15 cents; Churn
Gold oleomargarine for 20
cents a pound; and Bridle Rose
self-rising flour, 75 cents a
sack.

50 YEARS AGO
The installation of a second
well for the Bowling Green city
water system has been ap-
proved by the City Commission
at a cost not to exceed $6,000.
The city will obtain three bids
on a 10-inch well with a 12-
inch first casing and a 10-inch
pump.

Skipper Gause of Ona, who
two years ago showed a reserve
champion steer, won the top
prize at the Hardee County Fair
Fat Stock Show with his 1,005-
pound Black Angus named
Smokey Joe. Jerry Lawrence of
Bowling Green had the reserve
champion, also a Black Angus.
County Agent Jack Hayman
called this year's show one of
the most successful in fair his-
tory.

Dr. L.A. Rehberg won re-
election to the Wauchula City
Council in one of the closest
elections in city history.
Rehberg. a chiropractor, defeat-
ed Jhis only opponent, O.K.
Stringer, in the Ward I race by
only two votes. 88 to 86.

Real estate values this week
included; a large .eight-room
house with screened porches,
double garage and more for
$10,000; a seven-room frame
home with two baths, porches
and fireplace for $12,000; and a
new ranch-type home with
built-in electric kitchen, central
heat and landscaped yard for
$13,500.

25 YEARS AGO
'Poor phosphate conditions
worldwide will cause the layoff


of about two-thirds of the CF
Mining crews within the next
few weeks, Presently, 150
workers are working 24 hours a
day, seven days a week, but that
will be reduced to one shift five
days a week. CF owns about
19,500 acres in northwest Har-
dee but also gets some of its
phosphate rock from Inter-
national Minerals & Chemicals.

After giving the axe to one
engineering firm's $54,000 pro-
posal to design and install a
leachate system at the Hardee
County Landfill, county com-
missioners have approved a
firm asking $70,000. Commis-
sioners were not happy with the
first firm because it would only
offer $500,000 liability when
the county wanted $2.5 million.

Another Wauchula landmark,
located at Florida Avenue and
Main Street, is being torn down.
It is the old. Wauchula Infir.-
mary, which has served six doc-
tors and numerous patients for
well over 50 years. Doctors
who used the hospital were
A.A. Poucher, Miles.A. Collier,
Barbara Carlton, Gene and
Margaret Moore, and Alfred S.
Massam.

A stoplight has been installed
at SR 64 and U.S. 17 in Zolfo
Springs, reports the state
Department of Transportation.
The light, which stops traffic on
both U.S. 17 and SR 64,
replaces a caution light and stop
signs at the intersection. Left-
turn arrows make for safer
access.

10 YEARS AGO
Within a couple of years.
Hardee County will be operat-
ing a pair of wastewater treat-
ment plants. An agreement to
provide service to the Florida
Institute for Neurologic Re-
habilitation will start plans for a
$1 .6 million plant off Vandolah
Road. And the county recently
purchased .a 50-acre property
off SR 62, about a half-mile
from U.S. 17. for a second plant
to serve Wauchula Hills, the
college and mobile homes and
U.S. 17 businesses.

Wauchula's alcohol ordi-
nance will come before the City
Council again on Monday
evening with a request by the
Elks Lodge to support its appli-
cation for a state liquor license.
This is the second time it has
come up since voters approved
a countywide referendum
changing from a dry to a wet
county.

Commission Chairman Nick
Timmerman signs a proclama-
tion of Adoption Awareness
month and is shown with foster
parent Vera Prestridge, who has
adopted three of her foster chil-
dren. She spoke of the need for
foster care and adoption for
those hard to place, such as sib-
lings, adolescents, children of
color or those with physical or
mental handicaps.

Rodeo Bits

BIKNEFIT RANCH RODEO
:.s muc1 h as I love the open outdoor arenas for rodeos, I will
admit that having a ranch rodeo in air-conditioned comfort in mid- '
Auegit was a welcomee respite from our summer heat and humidi-
It (especially since it was raining that day as well).
Aug. 20 sasw working horses, old-timer ropers and 10 ranch
teams gather at the Turner Center in Arcadia for a ranch rodeo to
benefit Tidewell Hospice. The events started with the Working
Horse Competition, where all eyes were on the equine athletes.
This competition is fast becoming very popular Purina Feeds
sponsored one at the recent Florida Cattlemen's Association Ranch
Rodeo Finals (which was won by Pat Thomas of the Belflower
Cattle/Audubon Ranch team), and Gary Jones hosted one last
weekend at the Cattlemen's Arena.
Ten horse-and-rider combinations were entered at the benefit,
performing run and stop, spinning (to both right and left), boxing,
fencing, circling, and rope-an,. ll maneuvers. Hardee County
had Mike Sanders entered, and well-known pickup man Alton
Langford competed on two separate horses. These maneuvers are
what these ranch horses do every working day, and it is an awe-
some sight to see these animals move.
Then the ranch rodeo competition began, with branding, dou-
ble muggin', sorting, team doctoring, and bronc riding as the
events.
Hardee County was present on three teams: Luke Cantu, Peck
Harris and his brother Ty, and Christy and Clay Newsome as the
M&N Cattle team; Stevens Land & Cattle, consisting of Charles
Robert Stevens III with teammates Joey Drake, "Little" Jon Davis,
Fred Griffin and Chance Wright (I'm not sure if he was on this
team or the Wright Farms team); and the SMR/CJ Cattle team, with
Brandon Dieter and Robert Fussell (Tamme Miller Fussell's
nephew), together with Jason McEndree and brothers Stevie and
Alan John.
The branding was done with two teams competing side-by-
side, roping from the same herd of cattle, so I didn't get any times.
One team even roped two calves with the same loop, so they got to
brand those two in one shot, and won that event. M&N Cattle had
the best time in the double muggin', but it was disqualified for
some reason (no one would ever tell me what it was), while the
other two teams received no-times.


The Stevens Land team was one of only two teams to complete
the sorting event, which it did in 53.29 seconds, taking second
place. It also came in third in the team doctoring event, with a time
of 1:08.30, followed by SMR/CJ Cattle with a time of 1:28.89
(which included a five-second penalty for roping only one hind
leg).
The final event was the bronc riding. The winning score was
70. Tv Harris and "Little" John Davis tied with a score of 67, fol-
lowed closely by Brandon Dieter with a score of 61.
While they were loading the broncs into the chutes, we were
entertained by the Old-Timer's Roping Competition, with seven
cowboys competing. This was the tie-down event. but a "young-
ster" ran out after the calf was roped. to flank and tie it. I now know
.where Charles Robert learned how to rope his dad. Charlie,
burned up the arena, winning this event with a time of 18.90 sec-
onids (and- if Charles Robert hadn't been so slow on tying, the time
would have been even faster!).
The Stevens Land & Cattle team placed second overall, with
M&N Cattle in fifth place, and SMR/CJ Cattle in eighth place. But
the real winner was Tidewell Hospice the event raised more than
S5.000 for this worthy cause!


Mike Sanders and his horse complete one of the required
maneuvers in the working horse competition.

Brandon Dieter heads into the herd to rope a calf and
bring it to his SMR/CJ Cattle teammates to brand.

Charlie Stevens readies his rope to throw it in the Old-
Timer's Roping event. Together with his son, Charles
Robert, he completed this event in 18.90 seconds, gar-
nering him first place.
