CPA Theft Could Tally $1


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A trusted local accountant is
suspected of stealing upwards
of $1 million in client funds.
Michael Douglas Manley,
owner of Manley & Associates
in Wauchula, was arrested
Monday night on first-degree
felony charges of grand theft
over $100,000 and money laun-
dering. He was booked into the
Hardee County Jail at 8:24 p.m.


If convicted of the crimes as
charged, Manley faces a possi-
ble maximum sentence of 60
years in state prison.
He was charged after alleged-
ly admitting to taking money
out of clients' trust accounts,
Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office said.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier placed
the figure at over $500,000 and
rising.
Manley was being held with-.


out bond following his first
appearance before a judge
Tuesday morning. At that time,
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle
withdrew himself from the
case, as Manley is his personal
accountant.
Another circuit judge was set
to 'preside over the matter on
Wednesday morning. Manley
was to be advised of the charges
against him and the question of
bond was to be addressed.


Prosecuting the case will be
Assistant State Attorney Steve
Houchin. Rusty Franklin will
appear as defense counsel.
Dey said Tuesday afternoon
that the Sheriff's Office and the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement will oppose bond
for Manley, asking the court to
require Manley to show where
he got any money he might post
to gain his release before trial.
Manley's bond was set


Wednesday morning for
$100,000 on each of the two
counts he is charged with.
Additionally he was ordered
to surrender his passport and
cannot travel outside of Hardee,
Highlands or Polk County.
A Nebbia hold was placed
upon his release on bond, which
means he must provide proof
the money used for the bond
was obtained from legitimate
legal means.
Manley, a certified public
accountant, owned and operat-
ed the accounting firm at 203 S.
Seventh Ave. in Wauchula. The
building and grounds were sur-
rounded with yellow crime-
scene tape all day Tuesday as
investigators searched digital
and paper records.
Meanwhile, Manley, 52, of
311 Ohio Ave., Wauchula,
signed written resignations
from his positions as secre-

Marine Seriously Injured at Camp


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
For a 2009 Hardee Wildcat
graduate, life has taken a sharp
turn in the last week.
Nick Battles was achieving
his dream to become a Marine.
when his goal was waylaid last.
Wednesday by a freak injury
during the last day of basic
training.
Now. Nick has a challenge of
unbelievable proportions as he
struggles to recover from those
devastating injuries. One verte-
bra was shattered and another


fractured. He was paralyzed
from the collarbone down. He
has since had successful stir-
nerv to fuse the vertebrae in his
neck. As his bruised and
pinched spinal cord is healing.
he is gradually .getting feeling

The owner of the now-
defunct Hardee Livestock
Market is facing a federal
indictment for fraud following
her attempts to reopen the fail-
ing facility.
Janice Patricia Wheeler, 49,
of 3711 Oak Hills Ranch Road,
Zolfo Springs, was booked into
the Hardee County Jail on a
federal warrant Wednesday
night of last week. She had been
taken into custody for failing to
appear in U.S. District Court in
Tampa on Oct. 27 as sum-
moned, according to the case
file.
The fraud charge was the
result of a grand jury indictment
handed up on Sept. 28.
Maj. Randy Dey of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
said the U.S. District Court's
summons to Wheeler following
that indictment originally had
been mailed, but was returned
undelivered because there was
no mailbox at the address. A


sheriff's deputy then hand
delivered the notice, he said.
But, the district court alleged,
Wheeler failed to show up in
court as ordered.
A warrant was issued for her
arrest.
Dey said Sgt. Lyle Hart took
Wheeler into custody at about 9
p.m. on Wednesday. She was
held in the county jail until the

An inappropriate e-mail sent
to the executive director of the
Hardee County Economic De-
velopment Council has led to a
member losing her seat on the
council.
Nancy Craft forwarded an e-
mail message to Bill Lambert
that showed a woman getting
naked while receiving a golf
lesson. It was intended to be a
joke played on the instructor.
Craft said she did not intend
to send the email to Lambert's
work e-mail address and
thought she was sending it to
his personal e-mail account.
Lambert called for a meeting
with the executive committee of
EDC, made up of Joe Albritton,
Vanessa Hernandez, Rick Jus-
tice and Mike Manley before he
resigned.
The committee deemed the
e-mail to be inappropriate and
asked Craft to resign her seat on
the council.


She chose not to resign, so
the executive committee called
an emergency meeting with the
entire board for the next day,
Oct. 28, to discuss the e-mail
and what should be done about
it.
The council decided to have
a written and anonymous vote
on whether or not Craft should
be removed from the council.
By a vote of 11-2, with one
abstention, Craft was voted off
the council.
'Craft feels she was removed
from the board because she
often does not agree with the
director or other council mem-
bers at meetings and not be-
cause of the content of the e-
mail.
Albritton, who is chairman
of the council, said the execu-
tive committee decided the e-
mail was unacceptable for a
council member to send to a
staff nmemnlber and would have
removed anyv incnnlmber that sent

Hardee County Sheriff Arnold Lanier, a Republican, has
announced he will seek re-election in 2012. He has already quali-
fied to seek a second term and said there is still a lot to be done
regarding law enforcement in the county.

Many Gator fans have adopted the Denver Broncos as one of
their favorite NFL teams since Tim Tebow is the starting quarter-
back.
The Bucs and Gators are sliding, as FSU is Florida's top col-
lege football team.
Former Gator coach and quarterback Steve Spurrier is proud
that his South Carolina team this season has defeated traditional
SEC East powerhouses Florida, Tennessee and Georgia.

8-2 Hardee will face the 9-1 Highlanders in Lake Wales Friday
night in a 5-A football playoff game.
These two schools met in Lake Wales in 1994. Lake Wales was
No. I in the state and won 7-6. It was a game for the ages.
Bob Martin was Hardee's head coach in his 16th year. The
Wildcats won the regular season ending game 14-0 over DeSoto,
where Martin had been a head coach earlier in his career for 10
years. Martin was growing chickens when superintendent John
Terrell lured him to HHS.
Martin would coach at HHS one more year, and in 1995 led the
Cats to the state title game in Daytona Beach where the Cats lost
28-21 to Jacksonville Bolles. Martin retired because he had
leukemia.
Lake Wales in 1994 was head coached by Ron Shafer who
later was head coach at Webber College but is now back as Lake
Wales head coach. He will be matching strategy with second year
HHS head coach Buddy Martin.
In 1994 Lake Wales was led by Ron Scarlett, Jeff Chaney,
Ronnie Daniels and Corey Harris. They went on to the state title
game and lost to Jacksonville Bolles.
In the first quarter HHS quarterback Justin Hays was blind-
sided, fumbled, and a Highlander ran with the pigskin to the
Hardee 2. A short line plunge and kick put Lake Wales ahead 7-0.
Sports Editor Joan Seaman wrote that 5.000 fans attended the
game, about 2,500 for each side.
Hardee players included Hays, Daniel Irby. Chris Barnes, Ray
Rivas, Kunta Holley, Myron Refoure. Queet Harris, Will Tyson.
David McClintock, Kevin Keen, Donnie Canary. Josh McKibben,
Kenny Hudson, Rashad Faison, Mike lonnidis. Randy Mink, Perry
Jackson, and Samir Abdel Halim.
The two teams battled on even terms. Hardee hit 6 of 12 pass-
es for 53 yards and I interception. Lake Wales was I for 1 for I
yard. Hardee rushed 40) times for 177 yards. The Highlanders
rushed 37 times for 174 yards.
Hardee outgained Lake Wales 230 yards to 175 yards and held
the edge in first downs. 13-10. Hardee had 2 turnovers and Lake
Wales 1.
Refoure was a star on defense with 12 tackles and 2 sacks and
is still remembered by Highlander players from 1994.
In the middle of the fourth quarter Hardee mounted a long 14-
play drive that resulted in a short plunge by Hudson for a TD with
27 seconds left. On the two-point conversion try. Hudson took .a
pitch right and headed for the end zone corner. He went out of
bounds at the pylon on a tackle by Harris. Most of Hudson was
across the goal line but an official ruled the ball did not. It was a
game of an inch or two.
Hays, nicked Gabby by his head coach, was injured in the
scoring drive and replaced by quarterback Faison. a freshman.
Hardee had 7 seniors and Lake Wales 19.
Faison is now an HHS assistant football coach. Kunta Holley
has a son on the 2011 Wildcats, Keyonte. Chris Barnes has a
Wildcat son, Keyon Brown.
It will be interesting to see if the 2011 Wildcats, with 19 sen-
iors, can avenge the 1994 loss and go on to become one of the
greatest HHS teams in history by going deep in the state playoffs.
The Cats have already been a pleasant surprise after last year's 3-8
record, which included a close playoff loss to unbeaten Tampa
Jesuit.

Siails travel on "roadways" that they make themselves. A
snail produces a sticky liquid on the underside of its flat
foot. The rim of its foot skids along on the liquid with a rip-
pling motion. Wave after wave of this motion pushes the
snail along.

He already has the will and

His mother adds a few more,

have 100 reasons to smile.
When you feel like giving up.

She says the outpouring of
love from Hardee County peo-
ple has sustained her and the
family. "We couldn't do it with-
out that," she says. Facebook,
cards and phone calls have been
overwhelming. Despite the
emotional rollercoaster the fam-
ily has been on. They've
cheered each little bit of success
that Nick has had and encour-
age him in being patient during

Solar Farm Firms Up Plans


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A proposed 1.400-acre solar
farm for eastern Hardee County
passed another hurdle last
week.
The Hardee County Com-
mission adjourned its regular
meeting on Thursday and met
as a zoning board to hear the
request for a Special Exception
for the master plan and site
development plan for National
Solar Power Partners.
The 220 megawatt grid sys-
tem will be built in phases.
Each 20 MW farm will cover
about 160 acres. and will be
phased in over a period of about
five years. All but one will
have- only the solar panels and
associated small electrical cabi-
nets. One will have a mainte-
nance building and service area
for full-time employees. offices
and a small learning center for
visiting schoolchildren and
adults to learn about the pro-
duction of electricity by solar
energy. Lines from the project
will connect to the nearby
Progress Energy grid.
The biggest objection came
from neighbor Joe Wright. pres-
ident of the 1295-acre B & W
dairy farm adjacent to the pro-
posed solar plant. Wright was in
favor of the use of the land. the
former Holly Hill Farms. to
produce solar electric. His only


concern was the road the two
share. Jersey Lane. which is an
unpaved county road for about
1.300 feet and then an unpaved
private road. It would be the
access road for both businesses.
Wright said the back yards.
septic tank and drainage for
three houses which back up to
Jersey Lane shouldn't be affect-
ed by the access road. "We
don't want to lose those houses.
The right-of-way for the road
shouldn't come off our proper-
ty.
Solar vice-president Eric
Williams said they were already
discussing all possibilities
about the use of Jersey Lane or
an alternate way into the site.
Williams also answered ques-
tions from the audience and
commissioners. There will be
no federal monies used for the
project, it will all be private
funding.
Although the county has
approved a tax abatement. 80
percent for 10 years, the amount,
of tax dollars will grow as each
section is developed and moves
from Agricultural Green Belt to
power producing sections.
When the build-out is complet-
ed. it will add $700 million to
the Hardee County tax roll.
The abatement does not apply
anything to other than county
taxes. It will add 20 percent ad
valorem on land for each. $70.


million section completed.
There will be full ad valorem
school taxes paid. Economic
Development Director Bill
Lambert explained that the state
has a formula for its school
funding and the required local
effort. Within those limitations.
the company tax commitment
would result in lowered
required local effort from other
taxpayers. So. it wouldn't be a
full $70 million tax roll for each
section.
In lieu of the first 20 percent
of tax abatement, the Industrial
Development Authority has
approved an incentive grant of
$100.000 for planning the proj-
ect and up to $150.000 for a
transformer interconnectivity
study. It is only a portion of the
study. which costs $400.000 to
$500.000.
Williams said after the meet-
ing that Solar is working on its
environmental permit and
hopes to begin clearing and site
work by February or March.
The solar panels will be deliv-
ered about two months later. A
new section will be added about
every six months.
Williams said as part of the
tax abatement developer agree-
ment. Solar is committed to hir-
ing Hardee County employees
as much as possible. A job fair
will be held in Wauchula on the
available jobs.


Old Electronics Go To Haz-Mat Site


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Reduce, Reuse. 'Recycle.
How many times have you
heard that expression?
Well, on Saturday the Hardee
County landfill will be hosting
its quarterly Household Haz-
ardous Waste Clean-Up Day
from 8 a.m. to noon.
Since Christmas is drawing
near, now is a great time to get
rid of hazardous materials to
make room for those gifts to be
hidden.
Maybe you're getting your
teen a new iPod or laptop. Or
you might be thinking of get-
ting that new big screen TV on
Black Friday. Just gather up all
of your old electronics and take
them out to the landfill.
This way you know your old
gadgets '"vill be' properly dis-
posed of instead of leaving
them on the side of the road
where they can leak hazardous
chemicals into the groundwater.
In this modern day and time,
it seems that every month a new
and better cell phone that we
"just have to have." comes
along. A good way to clear out


those old cell phones is to take
them to be disposed of properly.
Take along all of those old
household cleaner products
whether aerosol or spray cans,
boxes or bottles. Anything con-
taining chemicals are accepted.
Herbicides, pesticides, and
insecticides that have already
served their purposes should
not be dumped into the ground
or put in with the rest of the
garbage.
Are there fluorescent light
bulbs that need to be changed
but you don't know what to do
with the old ones? Is there
paint, wood preservatives, or
stains left over from that time
you redid your house?
How about car enthusiasts?
Do you have car batteries. used
motor oil, antifreeze, or brake
and transmission fluids lying
around? Or maybe gasoline and
petroleum products?
Also people with pools
might have accumulated pool
cleaning chemicals after those
hot summer days.
Things you won't be allowed
to dispose of are gas cylinders.
flares, ammunition, explosives.


pyrotechnics, radioactive waste,
biohazards, or infectious waste.
Also tires will not be accepted.
Each household can dispose
of up to 60 pounds of hazardous
waste for free. There will be
people there who will help you
unload all of your materials.
Businesses that generate less
than 220 pounds of hazardous
waste per month may take their
waste for proper disposal
although they will have to pay
current contract price's.
If a business generates more
than 220 pounds and less than
2,200 pounds of waste per
month, it will not be allowed to
take its waste to the landfill on
Saturday. It may call EQ of
Florida for a pickup time.
If you would like more infor-
matiqn on what you can take to
recycle, you may call the land-
fill at 773-5089.
Hardee County Sanitary
Landfill is located at 685
Airport Road. Follow East
Main Street about two miles
from town, turn left onto
Airport Road and follow until
the paved road ends at the
entrance to the landfill.

FIELD DEDICATED


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
A halftime ceremony named the football field in honor of the late Calvin R. Triplett, who won a 4-A state championship
with Fort Pierce Central in 1971. Triplett fought in the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. A thrilling district title win
27-25 over Merritt Island helped propel the Cobras in 1971. The St. Lucie Board of County Commissioners passed a
resolution Nov. 1, 2011, to name the field after Triplett. He was head coach for several years at Winter Haven High
School before joining the statewide teacher walkout. He was hired in 1969 to be head coach at Dan McCarty High
School in Fort Pierce and took a former 3-7 team to a 7-3 record in 1969. He was head coach of the first three Fort
Pierce Central teams. His teams went 11-2, 13-0 and 8-2, for an overall record of 39-7 in four years in St. Lucie County.
He won three Suncoast Conference titles, two sectionals, and was state runner-up in 1970. In three years at Fort Pierce
his record was 32-4 with a 21-0 Suncoast Conference record. Thirty players received football scholarships in his four
years in St. Lucie County. Five former players made college All-American and four were drafted by the National Football
League, with another four signing as free agents. He also won two state high school football championships in Mis-
sissippi, in 1958 at McComb and 1986 at Picayune. Defensive tackles Eddie Edwards and Don Latimer from his Fort
Pierce Central teams went to University of Miami and later played for the NFL Bengals and NFL Broncos respectively.
The proclamation said Triplett was a "role model" "and helped many young men find their way in life through his out-
stahding coaching skills." Triplett played split end in college for Army.

Hardee Native Buddy Williams Enjoys Being Physically Fit


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Buddy Williams. 73. has
spent a lifetime staying physi-
cally fit. He is a 1957 graduate
of Hardee High School and has
devoted his life to football. fam-
ily. firith. and friendships.
Retired and living outside
Lakeland near the Green
Swamp, he and his wife Gloria
of 46 years enjoy having their
three children and their families
as neighbors. Daughter Lori
Pujol and son Leon Williams
are award-winning teachers.
Son Adam Williams is an
award-winning policeman.
There are nine grandchildren.
Williams played offensive
and defensive end for the
Hardee High Wildcats. He
caught a lot of passes. The head
coach was Chuck Williams. The
Cats won about half their games
in 1956 and 1957.
Williams was 145 pounds as
a 10th grader and 170 pounds as
a senior. He remembers one
game in which quarterback
Billy McCall overthrew a pass
intended for W. M. Marsh and
Williams caught it for a touch-
down to tie Fort Meade 7-7.
After his senior season
University of Tampa Spartans
head football coach Marcelino
Huerta came to Wauchula and
had Williams run sprints and
pass routes and then offered
him a scholarship. Some
University of Florida alumni
wanted Williams to go play for
the Gators.
Williams committed to Tam-
pa and the first year lived in
Huerta's home. He was 6-0 and
185 pounds and was a running-
back and leading Spartan
receiver catching passes out of
the backfield and as a flanker.
He played football four years in
Tampa and led the team in
receiving two years, in scoring
three years and rushed for a 4.5
average.
After college he went into the
Army for three years. He got
letters from all of the pro foot-
ball teams and still has them.
University of Tampa remind-
ed him of high school because
there were dances after the foot-
ball games. The Spartans
played such teams as Wofford,
Troy State, Southeast Louis-
iana, Tennessee, Alabama and
Florida State.
In high school he played foot-
ball the entire game, including
kickoff and punt returns. At
HHS he was an all-around track
athlete, participating in the
shotput, discus, high jump, pole
vault, 100-yard dash, and 220-
yard dash.
Other Hardee Countians who
played with Williams on the
Spartan football teams were
Jerry Strickland and Don
Herndon. Herndon was three
years older than Williams and
made Little All-American as a
runningback. "We were both
the same size and bow-legged.


We would hit the hole hard and
bounce off tacklers." Williams
his senior \ear was slowed by a
groin injury.
After the A\rmy Williams
played semi-pro football for
teams in Lakeland and Orlando
for S50 a game.
His father Bob Williams
worked for Doyle E. Carlton Sr.
and Doyle E. Carlton Jr. and
died at age 39 of a diabetic
coma when Buddy was in the
ninth grade. The family lived in
one of the Carlton houses.
As a young boy Buddy
Williams was interested in
physical fitness. In the summers
he hoed orange trees. He
worked out regularly, running.
doing pushups and situps, and
pole vaulting in the front yard.
In the Army he did 100 situps
and 100 pushups daily. He did
two sets of 30 pullups and could
do 25 one-arm pushups.
In high school he often ran
for nine miles on back roads
and cow paths, stopping at the
halfway point to visit his friend
Bubby Whidden. "I developed a
lot of patience. I never quit."
His brother Robert was also a
good athlete in his younger
years, but loved to eat and died
at age 71 after reaching 470
pounds.
Williams coached football
and track for 25 years in Polk
County at the high school and
junior high level, including
Kathleen High School,
Kathleen Middle School and
Lake Gibson High School. He
was a head junior varsity coach
at Lake Gibson High and head
coach at Kathleen Middle
School. He taught physical edu-
cation and driver education and
turned down a job as principal.
He was offensive coordinator
at Kathleen High School under
head coach Tom Atwell who
liked a strong passing game.
Quarterback David Bowden
played for the Gators and wide
receiver Joe Goldsmith played
for the FSU Seminoles.
Williams started meetings of
Christian athletes. Today he is
head deacon at the local
Salvation Army and participates
in an annual men's camp which
features competitive sports. At
Salvation Army he met his wife
who was a secretary.
Williams still plays a lot of
tennis, practices stop and go
running, and does calisthenics.
He has won the state title in the
100 meters at the Senior Games
and finished second in the state
in the high jump and 200
meters, and third in the long
jump.
In 2009 he won gold medals
in mixed tennis doubles and
men's tennis doubles in the
Polk Senior Games.
"I took up tennis at age 50
and play two to three hours.
three times a week at Kelly
Recreation Center. A group of
16 guys meet there. I used to
play racquetball. He.played flag


football at the Lakeland Citl
League until the age of 63. He
now likes to scuba dive.
"I still have all my teeth. All
my parts work good. Staying in
shape prevents disease. Eating.
heredity and family\ habits are.
factors, It is calories in and
calories out. If \ou eat a lot. y'o
have to burn a lot of calories.
"I love ice cream and choco-
late-covered nuts and eat a lot
of vegetables. Growing up I ate
a lot of vegetables and fish."
Williams was impressed by
watching a health channel on
TV that showed 90 percent of a
group of people greatly
improved their health in 90
days by eating nuts. greens.
vegetables and some lean meats
plus exercising.
His favorite subject in college
was anatomy and physiology "I
memorized the bones. muscles
and ligaments in the human
body."
At age 73 Buddy, Williams
enjoys a healthy and happy life.

SSEEDS
FROM
gTH THE
SOWER





When I firs 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 Dut his was straight,
"What did I do wrong?" I asked.
'Your eyes wandered." he said.
"I fixed my eyes on a goai.'
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."

Wildcats Fall To Fort Pierce


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats fin-
ished the regular season Friday
night with a hard-fought loss to
Fort Pierce Central which put
the Cats at 8-2 for the year.
, This Friday evening Hardee
travels to District 10 champion
Lake Wales for the first round
of the 5,A playoffs at 7:30
against the Highlanders who are
9-1 for the year (see related
playoff story).
In last week's game, the
Wildcats got off to a fast start
by taking the opening kickoff
and going on a 77-yard touch-
down drive to start the game.
Ledarius Sampson had a 17-
yard run followed by a 20-yard
run by Andrew Hooks.
Quarterback Colby Baker fin-
ished the drive with a 4-yard
keeper around the left end. The
Octavio Alvarez PAT was good
and the Wildcats led 7-0 with
5:56 to go in the first quarter.
Fort Pierce responded quick-
ly, taking just six plays to move
59 yards to tie the game at 7-7
with 4:13 left in the first quar-
ter.
The Wildcats started their
next drive deep in their own ter-
ritory at the 7-yard line. A-pair
of 6-yard runs by Sampson was
followed by a 30-yard gain by
Hooks.
Aaron Barker took a pitch
around the right side for a 15-
yard gain and a facemask penal-
ty tacked on 15 more, moving
the ball down to the Fort Pierce
15-yard line.
Four plays later Hooks found
the end zone on a 2-yard run up
the middle. The Alvarez PAT
was good and the,'Cats led 14-
7 with 11:56 left in the half.
Fort Pierce took over at its
36-yard line and went on an 8-
play drive capped off by a quar-
terback run around the left end.
The PAT tied the game at 14-14
with 9:35 left in the game.
Hardee started the next drive
at its 20-yard line after a 15-
yard return by Deonte Evans.
An incomplete pass on third
down had the 'Cats punting
back to Fort Pierce which took
over at the Hardee 48-yard line.
On the first play of the drive
Jonathan Stevens took a hand-
off around the left end for a 48-
yard touchdown run. The PAT
was good and Hardee trailed
21-14 with 7:35 left in the half.
The kickoff went out of
bounds giving Hardee the ball
at the 35-yard line.
Keonte Holley ripped off a
12-yard run to start the drive
and Hooks had a 20-yard gain
before an intentional grounding
penalty moved Hardee back.
On third-and-24, Baker
dropped back and threw into the
end zone for a heavily guarded
Hooks who made a great diving
catch for a 40-yard touchdown


strike. Alvarez made the PAT
and the Cats had tied the game
at 21-21 with 4:11 left in the
half.
Fort Pierce took over and
drove down to the Wildcats'
goal line before the Hardee
defenders denied the end zone
and forced the Cobras to settle
for a 31-yard field goal with 11
seconds left in the half making
it 24-21.
Fort Pierce received to start
the second half and stretched its
lead to 31-21 after going on an
80-yard drive finished off by a
29-yard touchdown pass from
Marcus Sigmon to Jameel
Jackson.
Hardee was forced to a three-
and-out punt after Baker was
sacked while attempting a pass
on third down.
Fort Pierce took over at the
Wildcat 38-yard line but was
forced to a turnover on downs
after going for it on fourth
down.
Needing only a yard,
Alquawn Vickers tried running
up the middle but Mikey Retana
made a big hit and denied the
first down.
The Wildcats then went on a
71-yard touchdown drive, fin-
ished off with a hard run up the
middle from 5-yards out by
Holley. The Alvarez PAT made
it 31-28 with 11:56 left in the
game.
Fort Pierce responded and
stretched its lead,to 38-28 after
going on an .8-play, 64-yard
touchdown drive with 8:28 left
in the game.
Hardee then substituted
many of the offensive players
so they would not get injured in
the final game before the play-
offs.
Holley and Barker moved the
chains before sophomore quar-
terback Kris Johnson had a
third-down pass intercepted by
Freedom Whitfield and
returned 40-yards for a touch-
down with 5:29 left in the game
making the final score 45-28.
Head Coach Buddy Martin
said he was very proud of the
way his team competed with the
much larger school.
Depth became an issue late
in the game as many Hardee
players played both ways and
the Fort Pierce players were
limited to either offense or
defense.
Martin said the team accom-
plished what it needed to
against Fort Pierce and thinks it
will be a confidence booster
heading into the playoffs.
Tickets for the Lake Wales
game can be purchased in
advance by calling Suzanne
Stagg at Hardee Senior High,
773-3181, or through Albritton
Insurance.
Tickets are $8 and must be
paid for by cash only.

Youth Football Hosts

Family Fundraiser


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Youth Football
League is doing everything it
can to help the families of its
players.
To that end, the league is
hosting a Family Fund Day on
Saturday at Wildcat Stadium,
with all monies raised to go to
pay off the funeral for Midget
football player Adrian Rod-
riguez and medical expenses for
the Coronado family. Noah and
Zachary Coronado, coach Ed-
die Coronado and team mom
Olivia Coronado were among
those injured.
The death and injuries came
from an accident when they
were returning from a church
youth activity and were hit head
on by a drunk driver going
south on northbound U.S. 17
with no lights on his vehicle.
There will be a variety of
activities on Saturday, includ-
ing fun houses for the little ones
with tickets at $1 each. There
will be a punt, pass and kick
competition for all ages, with
trophies for each age group.
Also available will be barbe-
cue chicken dinners with baked
beans and cole slaw for $6 each.


Everyone is invited to drop
by the stadium and participate.
Those who just want to make
contributions to the families can
do so by stopping by Hardee
Junior High School and leaving
it for league president/treasurer
Donna Parks or mailing it to
HYFL, P.O. Box 2535, Wau-
chula FL 33873.
On Friday, the Youth League
cheerleaders will hold a bake
sale at Wauchula State Bank to
help them with expenses for a
trip to regional competition.
The girls brought home a first-
place trophy from the Pop
Warner Youth Development
Foundation Cheer Jam at
Ellington and will go on to
regional competition Nov. 25 in
Orlando.
On the football side of the
league, the Hardee Mitey Mites
played in Tampa against the
Division II New Tampa Wild-
cats and won 8-6 to become the
Don Clark Champions.
The Junior Pee Wee team
played its championship game
in Palmetto and defeated the
Division II Carrolwood Hur-
ricanes 26-7 to also be Don
Clark Champions.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Twenty-seven youth and
adults enjoyed the all-night trip
to Tampa. They watched the
Lightning win a hockey game,
and three of them were privi-
leged to ride in the machine that
cleaned the ice: Dalton and Rex
Richey and Holly Brown. They
said it was fun and you could
see all over the stadium. They
all had good seats-'ay up, but
everything was visible and most
thought the game exciting and a
first for most of them. Of course
the next day there were some
tired people in Fort Green!
Tina Owens, a member of
Fort Green and a worker at
Winn-Dixie is an unusual em-
ployee. She marked her 60th
year with this company on Nov.
17. I have never heard of any-
one being allowed or wanting to
stay that long with one compa-
ny.
She said one of the execu-
tives from Jacksonville came
down and interviewed her and a
crew filmed it. Hopefully it will
be shown on television.
Years ago people could stay
with one company until they
reached retirement, but in the
past 20 years quite a few com-
panies let them go a few years
before retirement, as a cost-sav-
ing measure. I have known
some personally that this hap-
pened to and it really hurt them
and their families.
Floyd Murray's family cele-
brated his 90th birthday with a
family dinner. Happy birthday
to him, and as my grandpa al-
ways said, hope you'll live to be


S 1 .

100!
Sherman and I went to a sem-
inar on alternative crops in Se-
bring last week. We were very
glad to see Ralph Chamberlain
in the audience. When the
speaker on peaches was leaving
he left, too. so Sherman left and
as soon as he had finished his
conversation with the peach
consultant, we enjoyed a visit.
He is looking good, even
though he said he was getting
gray and fat, I could not con-
firm that! He looked just the
same. He had visited with his
brother, Brian, recently when he
was up near Monticello and his
mother and dad still live in
Sebring. He said his dad always
was the "Archie Bunker" type,
but had mellowed and was real-
ly helping Betty with chores,
grocery shopping, etc. They all
used to live in Fort Green and
were members of Fort Green
Baptist. They are one family
that everyone misses!
Betty Walker and Mildred
Cooper were able to attend
church last Sunday. They both
looked really good and every-
one was glad to see them. We
were all surprised to see Lila
Blink, but one of her friends,
Dee, who lives in the park,
brought her and felt sure some-
one would drive her home and
she was certainly correct!
There were several available to
drive her home, but John and
Essie Deer were the privileged
ones!
Ladies Night Out was its
usual huge success. The youth
choir who sang are Kasie


-'owell, K.-Lynn Simpson,
Hannah and Holly. Brown,
Johnee and Ashlee Davenport,
Kaylee Hogenauer, Cierra,
Austin, Tyler and Dustin Smith,
Andrew Casey) and Norma
Alejandro. Byron Allison di-
rected them; Lee Chancey pro-
vided guitar music and Paul
Clark played the piano.
After the delicious meal and
wonderful program we had
door prizes. During this part of
the program Paul Clark, dressed
as a really Southern Santa in
typical summer attire, straw hat
and sandals, made an appear-
ance. This part of the program
was hilarious and you needed to
be there to get the full effect!
We had two young seniors
attending, Eunice Toms and
Odell Lee. Both of these fine
ladies have reached the magical
age of 91!
Nancy McQuaig was on
Facebook in the wee hours of
the morning recently when it
messed up and the phone rang
and it was her son who is in the
military in a foreign country.
She was one happy mama!
Johnny Summerville is not
doing well, Buck Toole is still
weak, Sharon Lee remains in
pain and Bim Davis is in the
hospital in Sebring but improv-
ing and expected to return to
Hardee Manor this week.
Please remember to pray for
these as well as each other and
our nation.

Constant use will not wear
ragged the fabric of friend-
ship.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well. Football fans, the season now has two less unbeaten
teams with Boise St. and Stanford falling this weekend. If
Oklahoma St. can beat Oklahoma and finish out. the National
Championship Game should be a great one. Oklahoma St., LSU
and Houston are the only undefeated teams left in college football.
What if Oklahoma beats Oklahoma St. and Arkansas beats LSU?
Just asking.
The Gators played South Carolina close but fell to 5-5. This
week, they face Furman. The Purple Paladins lost to Elon this
week. The Gators will become bowl eligible with a win Saturday.
A win at home over FSU would give UF a 7-5 season and salvage
the season going into the bowl game.
FSU is playing for a 10-win season since the ACC looks to
have Virginia Tech and Clemson in a rematch for the league's
championship. Clemson would be the better representative from
the ACC. Can FSU beat Florida in Gainesville? Regardless, the 30-
year bowl streak is in tack.
USF took out its frustrations on Syracuse in the Dome. The
Bulls still have a chance to play in a bowl game. The Big East has
so many scenarios going into the final weeks that it is more con-
fusing than rational. The BCS representative will have at least two
losses no matter which team it is. The Bulls have three home
games, with Miami, Louisville and West Virginia, to finish the sea-
son.
Now let's look at this week's Bill 0' Fare ...
1. Furman at Florida Gators have no problem in this one.
UF 41 Furman 7.
2. Miami at USF Bulls at home fresh off a win at Syracuse.
Both teams with 5 wins, so who wants a bowl the most? USF 33
Miami 31.
3. UCF at East Carolina Knights add to Pirates' long sea-
son. UCF 23 ECU 16.
4. Marshall at Memphis Herd needs to win here and at
home with ECU to go to the Hawaii Bowl. They can get it done.
Marshall 34 Memphis 19.
5. North Carolina at Virginia Tech Hokies take care of
business. VPI 35 UNC 17.
6. Southern Miss at UAB Eagles soar over hapless Blazers.
USM 58 UAB 14.
7. Kansas St. at Texas Wildcats are upset victims. Texas 31
KSU 28.
8. Cincinnati at Rutgers Collaros is out and Rutgers will
blitz the backup. Both teams are still in the hunt for the Big East
Title. Rutgers 24 Cincinnati 20.
9. Georgia Southern at Alabama Eziah Youyoute and his
Eagles go to Tuscaloosa! GSU, like Alabama, was ranked number
one most of the season in its division. A loss to Appalachian St.
knocked the Eagles down some. Alabama 48 GSU 20.
10. Mississippi St. at Arkansas Watch the Hogs. They
might beat LSU and throw the whole bowl picture into turmoil.
Arkansas 40 MSU 17.
11. Kentucky at Georgia SEC East Champion Dawgs roll.
UGA45 UK 10.
12. Vanderbilt at Tennessee Vandy becomes the State
Champ in this win. Bowl game on the line as well. Vanderbilt 34
Tennessee 23.
13. Samford at Auburn warm up for the Tide Game.
Auburn 47 Samford 13.
14. LSU at Ole Miss Ole Miss has hit bottom. LSU 56 Ole
Miss 10.
15. Bethune-Cookman at FAMU The" Classic "is not just
about the bands in this one. Both teams are 7-3 and an analysis of
the teams show they are about dead even. Slight edge to BCC in
this one. BCC 34 FAMU 30.
16. Virginia at FSU- Home field will give the Noles the edge


in this one. FSU 30 UVA 23.
17. Clemson at North Carolina St. Dabo's guys just keep
rolling. The last games will be with South Carolina, a real rivalry,
then a rematch with Virginia Tech in the ACC Title Game. USC 38
NCST 17.
18. Penn St. at Ohio St. Buckeyes rebound after another
loss to Purdue. PSU troubles here are playing a mad OSU team on
the road. Ohio St. 27 Penn St. 17.

Gospel Preacher


'CONTEND EARNESTLY ...'
"Beloved, while I was very diligent to write to you concerning
our common salvation, I found it necessary to write to you exhort-
ing you to contend earnestly for the faith which was once for all
delivered to the saints," Jude 1:3.
The faith being mentioned here was once delivered by Jesus
Christ, so there is no "latter day" revelation.
Consider these passages: "For Christ also suffered once for
sins ...," IPeter 3:18; "... we have been sanctified through the
offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all," Hebrews 10:10;
"... but now, once at the end of the ages, He has appeared to put
away sin by the sacrifice of Himself," Hebrews 9:26; "... with His
own blood He entered the Most Holy Place once for all, having
obtained eternal redemption," Hebrews 9:27; "... for this He did
once for all when He offered up Himself," Hebrews 7:26-27; "For
the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that
He lives, He lives to God, Romans 6:10.
The only "latter day" revelation was spoken of by the Hebrew
writer in Chapter 1: "God, who at various times and in various
ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these
last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed Heir of
all things, through Whom also He made the worlds," verses 1-2.
What has been delivered is "the faith," Jude 17, 20-21. Jude's
appeal is for those who've been sanctified ... to contend earnestly
for the faith. Realize that many of our neighbors are contending
zealously for false doctrine!
This word "contend" means "to struggle for." Could we be
more mindful of this when one of our friends misquotes Scripture,
thus giving it false meaning? How about when a scriptural question
comes up in conversation? Are we contending for the faith and
approaching others who "might not want to be badgered"?
Our admonition is to contend for the faith. Maybe we've for-
gotten that "struggling" is actually the biblical concept here.
Other folks might not enjoy hearing it, but the truth needs to
be told. Souls are being lost this very minute to false doctrine. Let
us resolve to stand fast for the Lord. Read, study and obey God's
Word.

Outta The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


GIVE THANKS FOR HUNTING OPPORTUNITIES!
The 2011-12 hunting season is in full swing. In this month's
column, I cover most everything you need to know about general
gun, fall turkey, quail and gray squirrel, snipe ano ..,e second phase
of mourning and white-winged dove seasons.
The first thing you need to do is pick up a S17 Florida resident
hunting license. Non-residents pay S46.50 for a 10-day license or
S 151.50 for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one of Florida's many wildlife management
areas, you'll also need a S26.50 management area permit., but don't
forget to study the brochure for the specific area you plan to hunt
because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area.
You can get these brochures at the tax collector's office near
each WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.-
com/Hunting.
You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-Hunt-
Florida or online at fl.wildlifelicense.com. Have your credit card
ready. You also can purchase them from a tax collector's office and
most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing supplies.
The general gun season runs Nov. 5-Jan. 22 in Zone C; Dec. 3-
Feb. 19 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun
season runs Nov. 19-Jan. 1. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day
and lasts four days through Nov. 27. Two weeks later, the season
reopens Dec. 10 and runs through Feb. 19.
Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler five inches
or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer
permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but
during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer.
In some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particular
WMA brochure before hunting.
On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with
no bag or size limits. On most but not all WMAs, there's also
no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them dur-
ing any hunting season except spring turkey. Again, check the
WMA brochure to be certain. '
The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called
"doe week," is Nov. 19-25 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C,
and Dec. 26-Jan. I (Christmas week) in zones B and D.
During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe,
or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day as you can
during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By
the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season.
If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules
and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for
details.

NOTICE OF SALE

Notice is hereby given that pur-
suant to a Summary Judgmeni
entered in the above-entitled
cause in the Circuit Court of
Hardee County, Florida, I will sell
the property situated in Hardee
County, described as:

TRACT 11: THE EAST 1/2 OF THE
NW 1/4 OF THE NE 1/4 OF SEC-'
TION 27, TOWNSHIP 33 SOUTH,

TY, FLORIDA, SUBJECT TO THE

THE SOUTH LINE OF SAID EAST
1/2 OF THE NW 1/4 OF THE NE
1/4 FOR 8.29 FEET; THENCE N 02
DEGREES 20'22" W FOR 242.95


Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 19-Jan. 1. In zones B and
C, it runs Dec. 3-Jan. 29 and Nov. 5-Jan. 1, respectively. And in
Zone D, fall turkey season is Nov. 24-27 and Dec. 10-Jan. 15,
except for in Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season.
Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game, and you
must have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for non-resi-
dents) to hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total
of two during the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall
turkey seasons combined.
Quail and gray squirrel season runs statewide Nov. 12-March
4. There's a daily bag limit of 12 for each, but shooting fox squir-
rels is against the law.
Shooting hours for deer, turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. All legal rifles,
shotguns. muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols are legal for
taking these resident game animals during the general gun, antler-
less deer. fall turkey, and quail and gray squirrel seasons.
Florida snipe hunting ranks second in the nation for the num-
ber of birds harvested each year. That season runs Nov. 1-Feb. 15
statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-winged
dove season also came in this month and runs Nov. 12-27. Shooting
hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before sunrise to
sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight: for doves, the bag limit is
15.
You must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to
hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds.
The FWC even provides an online "Dove Hunter's Hotline"
that gives up-to-date information on Florida's public dove fields.
The address is MyFWC.com/Dove, and it's updated every
Thursday throughout the dove season. Information includes dove
densities, previous week's harvests and field conditions.
Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunt-
ing solo, going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom,
November brings loads of great hunting opportunities.
Here's wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and a successful
hunting season!
Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWC's
Division of Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him
with questions about hunting at Tony.Young@MyFWC.comn.

PUTTING A MAN ON THE


MOON WAS SIGNIFICANT


By ZACKARY NEUHOFER ,
Special To The Herald-Advocate
I interviev\ed my grandfather, Paul
Neuhoter. He was born on Aug. 14,
1935, in St. Joseph, Fla., at his parents'
house.
His life as a child was busy. He had
daily chores
such as tak- @
ing care of \, ,
the animals, '; / ,.
cleaning
around the house, and going to school.
When school was over ar"1 the home-
work and chores were cdjplete, they
could play. He enjoyed games like Red
Rover and Mother May I?
One of his family traditions was
attending weekly Mass together every
Sunday. They would enjoy sitting
around the radio listening to programs
and baseball games.
As a child he does not remember
being afraid of anything. My grandfa-
ther enjoyed school and high school. He
recalls that they had to learn to read and
write, do math and understand litera-
ture. The school day was 8:30-3:30. He
went to grammar school for eight years
and high school for four years. There
was neither a kindergarten nor middle
school.
My grandfather walked to school and
when he was a little older he would ride
his bike. As a teenager he drove a car.
During his high school years he
played baseball and football on the
school team. He also enjoyed hunting
and fishing with his friends and family,
especially after Sunday Mass, but his
favorite memory is the day he graduated
high school.
My grandfather has 10 living sib-
lings. An older sister died when she was
11 years old from strep throat. He does-
n't remember much about her since he
was only 6 years old when she died.
Their family owned a truck for the
farm and a Chevy passenger car.
Entertainment in his day was a lot.

cheaper than it is now. A movie was
only 50 cents, and a burger and fries
was 35 cents. He remembers that most
people earned about $1 per hour for
work. A candy bar and Coke cost five
cents each. In 1960 a new car cost
around $2,000.
Boys wore dress-up shirts .and ties to
church with pants or jeans. Girls wore
dresses that were more modest than
today. There were no plunging neck-
lines or skin-tight clothes. Pedal pushers
were also popular with the girls.
Music that was popular was "cowboy
music" and big band. There was no
rock-and-roll or hip-hop rap. The music
was easier going, using acoustic guitars
and horns. He did not take any music
lessons and joked that he "can't carry a
tune and has no musical talent." His
father, however, did play the organ and
piano.
He met my grandmother on a blind
date. A friend of his fixed him up with
her, and he fell in love. They were mar-
ried 34 years until she passed away
from cancer in 1995. Together they had
nine children. It was good but was chal-


lenging having so many kids. The hard-
est part was giving each child the atten-
tion they needed. Discipline was impor-
tant, too. It was a pleasure to be a father
to them and watch them all grow up and
live positive lives.
As an adult he owned and operated
an egg farm. It started with just a few
chickens that they raised up. They sold
their eggs and in turn bought more
chickens. Eventually they owned 20,000
birds and sold their eggs to many busi-
nesses in the Tampa and St. Petersburg
area.
My grandfather recalls World War II
but no one in his immediate family was
affected. He did have an uncle that
served in the war. My grandfather
served two years in the Army, driving a
Jeep during.peace time. He believes
their political opinions and notions were
in the best interest of the country.
He said the most historically signifi-
cant thing that happened in his life was
the man landing on the moon. He
remembers being at home and thinking

about how amazing this achievement
was, and what future it would bring to
America.
He does believe life was simpler dur-
ing his childhood and teenage years
than compared to now. Everything went
in the same direction; there wasn't as
many ways to spend time and going
crazy to keep up with everything. He
likes technology and it has changed so
much since he was young; there are air-
planes, computers and TVs now. He
currently doesn't own any of this tech-
nology except a TV. He doesn't know if
he would like to have any of it during
his childhood because he doesn't even
use it now!

Week ending November 13, 2011
Weather Summary: There was virtually no rain and
cooler than normal temperatures across Florida during the week.
The 36 Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN) stations
reported no rain or less than one tenth of an inch. Temperatures
ranged from three to five degrees below normal. Temperatures
dipped below freezing at Alachua (27.0 degrees), Brooksville (31.7
degrees), Carrabelle (30.5 degrees), Live Oak (27.9 degrees),
MacClenny (28.8 degrees), Marianna (27.4 degrees), Monticello
(25.6 degrees), and Quincy (28,6) degrees). High temperatures dur-
ing the week were mostly in the high 70s to low 80s.

Field Crops: The field crop harvest continued without weath-
er interruptions. The dry weather has had an adverse effect on late
maturing cotton in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. About 75
percent of the cotton was harvested in Santa Rosa County. In
Washington County, the soybean and cotton harvest was proceed-
ing at a rapid pace. It was predicted that the peanut harvest would
be completed within 10 days. Statewide, the peanut harvest was at
96 percent complete, compared to 98 percent last year, and the
five-year average of 95 percent. Sugarcane harvesting continued in "
the Everglades region.

Fruit & Vegetables: Southern Florida vegetable producers
had clear weather for harvesting and caring for vegetable crops.
Cabbage was being planted in Flagler County. Producers marketed
green beans, sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant, okra, peppers,
squash, and tomatoes. Watermelons and specialty items were near-
ly ready for market. Conditions for disease pressure had lessened
due to the cooler, dryer weather.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture conditions
were mostly fair to good with' 50 percent in good condition. The
first frost of the season, along with drought and insect damage, lim-
ited the condition of pasture. The cattle condition ranged from poor
to excellent with 69 percent in good condition. In the Panhandle
and northern areas, pastures were in very poor to excellent condi-
tion with most fair to good. Drought, cold, and frost continued to
threaten winter forage. Dry soil conditions prevented timely plant-
ing of small grain forage. The cattle were in fair to good condition.
Cattle were being fed hay and supplements. In the central areas,
pasture conditions ranged from poor to good with most in good
condition. The condition of the cattle was fair to excellent with
most in good condition. In the southwestern areas, pasture condi-
tions ranged from poor to excellent with most in good condition.
Some rangeland in many poorly drained areas had standing water.
The condition of the cattle was fair to excellent with most in good
condition.

Citrus: Mild weather covered the complete citrus belt with
warm afternoons and cool evenings and mornings. No significant
rainfall was recorded in the citrus-growing region for the week.
Growers continued to irrigate regularly to keep moisture in.the
groves and maintain good fruit condition. Early citrus harvest
increased with specialty citrus tangeloss and tangerines), grapefruit
and early oranges being picked. Thirty-eight packinghouses have
opened with a couple more planning on opening around
Thanksgiving. Processing was still limited, primarily for packing-
house eliminations.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER




Many years ago an ad appeared
in London newspapers.
It read: Men Wanted! Constant
Danger. Safe return doubtful.
Honor in case of success!
Placed by explorer Shackleton,
it was a call for volunteers to go
with him to the South Pole.
Hundredsvolunteered.
Today our Lord offers you
choice and a challenge. He says.
"if any man will come after Me, let
him deny himself, and take up his,
cross, and follow Me."
There can be no gain without,
pain. no crown without a cross, .
Dare you take up your cross and:
followHim?

Dfid you
a ever forget
an important

anniversary or
birthday? Do you
ever feel forgotten,
even by those closest
to you? God always

remembers you.
You need only to
believe in His plan


il-.h and have faith in

your Creator. He tells us in Jeremiah 29:11...
"For I know the plans I have for you...to give you

a future and a hope." Remember God this week
at your house of worship; He knows every thing


about you and will never forget you.

The week the Hardee Wildcats play the Desoto Bulldogs is traditionally known
as "Spirit Week" at Hardee Senior High School. The game itself ranks as the old-
est-running football rivalry in the state. Anticipation mounts weeklong with a
variety of dress-up days to display that school spirit, such as Mustache Monday.
Tacky Tuesday, '80s Wednesday, Tourist Thursday and on Friday, game day. Ex-
treme Orange & Blue. Check out the campus fun, full of fuzzy shoes, fanny packs,
big hair, big hats and mismatched clothes galore! Can you guess which day is
which?

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
When you enter the land
God is giving you, don't
learn to do the hateful things
they do. ... Don't let anyone
do magic or witchcraft or try
to tell the meaning of signs.
Don't let anyone ... be medi-
ums or try to talk with the
spirits of dead people. The
Lord hates anyone who
does these things.
Deuteronomy 18:9,11-12a (NCV)

FRIDAY
Let us not grow tired of
doing good. .... let us then do
good to all men as opportu-
nity offers.
Galatians 6:9, 10a (PME)

SATURDAY
O God, my God! How, I
search for You! ... for Your
love and kindness are better
to me than life itself. How I
praise You! I will bless you
as long as I live, lifting up my
hands in prayer.
Psalm 63:1,3-4 (TLB)

SUNDAY
But the Day of the Lord will
come; it will come unexpect-
ed as a thief in the night. ...
but we have His promise
and look forward to new
heavens and a new earth, as
the home of justice and
righteousness. ... So, grow
in the grace and knowledge
of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ. To Him be glory now
and for all eternity.
II Peter 3:10a, 13 (NEB)

MONDAY
You (God) will keep in per-
fect peace all who trust in
You, whose thoughts are
fixed on You. Trust in the
Lord always, for the Lord
God is the eternal Rock. He
humbles the proud.
Isaiah 26:3-5a (NLT)

TUESDAY
Have nothing to do with
godless and silly myths.
Train yourself in godliness;
for while bodily training is of
some value, godliness is of
value in every way, as it
holds the promise for this
present life and the life to
come.
I Timothy 4:7-8 (RSV)

WEDNESDAY
A wicked man puts up a
bold front, but an upright
man gives thought to his
ways. There is no wisdom,
no insight, no plan that can
succeed against the Lord.
Proverbs 21:29-30 (NIV)
All verses are excerpted from

COURTESY PHOTO
The wee hours of Nov. 6 found seven Hardee Countians driving to the grounds of Florida
Hospital in Sebring to participate in the 17th annual Bill Jarrett Ford Gala 5K Fun Run/Walk.
Four came away with awards, yet they all were sporting smiles at the conclusion of the
event, which attracted nearly 300 participants. Pictured above, from left, are Andrea
Jennings; Wes Mercer, placing second in his age division; Judye Mercer, third in her age
group; W. H. Harward Jr., first in his age group; Sandra Brown; Crystal Bass, placing first in
her age group; and Bess Stallings. Senior adult Harward, 87, ran the 5K in 56 minutes and
29 seconds. All were congratulated by Florida Hospital CEO Tim Cook. The benefit was held
to raise money for all three Florida Hospital Heartland campuses, including Wauchula,
Sebring and Lake Placid.



NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE: The Southwest Florida Water Management District is proposing
to amend the following ruless: 40D-40.302, F.A.C.

The District's Annual Regulatory .Plan for July 2011 June 2012 identifies rulemaking initiatives that
are intended to amend or repeal outdated rules, reduce costs and implement changes that would
reduce burdens and achieve other streamlining benefits for the regulated public. One such initiative
relating to Environmental Resource Permits (ERPs) is to allow under the threshold for General ERPs
the ability to conduct dredge or fill activities in ponds up to one acre in size and constructed in up-
lands, for which no mitigation is required. This amendment will make the threshold for a general per-
mit consistent with the provision in Section 3.2.2.2 of the ERP Basis of Review which allows alterations
to certain wholly owned ponds constructed entirely in uplands and which are less than one acre in
size without requiring mitigation to offset adverse impacts to fish and wildlife.
The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking appeared in the Florida Administrative Weekly, Vol. 37, No. 46,
40D-40.302, F.A.C., on November 18, 2011. A copy of the proposed rule can be viewed on the Dis-
trict's website at http://www.swfwmd.state.fl.us/rules/proposed/
Pursuant to the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, any person requiring special ac-
commodations to provide comments on this rulemaking is asked to contact: The Southwest Florida
Water Management District Human Resources Director, 2379 Broad Street, Brooksville, Florida
34604-6899; telephone (352) 796-7211, ext. 4702 or 1-800-423-1476 (FL only), ext. 4702; TDD (FL
only) 1-800-231-6103; or email to ADACoordinator@swfwmd.state.fl.us. If you are hearing or speech
impaired, please contact the agency using the Florida Relay Service, 1(800)955-8771 (TDD) or
1(800)955-8770 (Voice).
THE PERSON TO BE CONTACTED REGARDING THE PROPOSED RULES AND A COPY OF THE
PRELIMINARY DRAFT OF EACH, IS: Barbara Martinez, 2379 Broad St., Brooksville, FL 34604-6899,

Of The Herald-Advocate
It's win or go home!
The 2011 Class 5A Region 3
playoffs begin Friday night.
As District 10 runner-up, the
Hardee Wildcats travel to
District 9 champion Lake Wales
for the 7:30 p.m. quarterfinal
round.
A win there will place Hardee
against the winner of the
District 10 champion Palmetto,
District 9 runner-up Auburndale
clash. If Palmetto wins, Hardee
would have to travel there to
take on the Tigers on their turf.
If Auburndale were to win, the
Bloodhounds would have to
come to Hardee.
The game against District 9
champion Lake Wales won't be
an easy one for the Wildcats.
The Highlanders won their
district with a 14-7 victory over
Auburndale. They finished the
season 9-1 with a 41-0 win over
hapless Bartow last Friday
night. The only loss for the
Highlanders came at the hands
of the Class 6A Winter Haven
Blue Devils on Oct. 28 in a 13-
10 game. I
After a preseason 21-21 tie
with Lakeland Kathleen, Lake
Wales went on to win the first


seven games of the season.
barely getting by Lake Gibson
19-16, and Auburndale 14-7 but
dominating all the other oppo-
nents but Winter Haven. The
Highlanders finished up with a
274-97 scoring record against
its 10 regular-season opponents.
"They've got a lot of good
players, are a lot like us, run a
lot and throw occasionally.
Their defense is good," summa-
rized Hardee Head Coach
Buddy Martin.
"They have a stable of run-
ning backs and an athletic quar-
terback," continued Martin.
Jonte Sergeant leads the run-
ning attack, with Tony Reeves,
Daniel Baker and punt returned
Ladarian Wilson rounding it
out. Quarterback Roland Milli-
gan is coming back from injury
but was only 4-for-8 in last
week's game. He likes to go to
his star receiver Marcel White,
but will aim for Christian
Blocker.
Martin said the Lake Wales
secondary and linebackers are
quick to back up the defensive
line and prevent opponent scor-
ing.
Not to worry. Hardee has its
own cadre of successful play-
ers. On the District 17 Florida


Athletic Coaches Association
All-Stars, among players from
Sebring, Avon Park, Lake
Placid, DeSoto, Moore Haven,
Walker Memorial and Heart-
land Christian, Hardee domi-
nated the All-Star squad. (The
last two do not play football).
Martin was named District 17
Coach of the Year. Wide receiv-
er/defensive back Deonte Evans
claimed the district Player of
the Year honor. In total, Hardee
equaled Sebring in placing 10.
the most of any district school
on the All-Star squad. Joining
Evans on the offensive team
were quarterback Colby Baker,
center Dylan Farr, and tackles
Wintz Terrell and Jesus Zuniga.
Defensively, Hardee also
placed five players on the All-
Star team. James Greene was
selected as a defensive end,
Mikey Retana as a linebacker,
Keshun Rivers as cornerback,
and both Justin Knight and
Andrew Hooks as safeties.
Overall, Hardee outscored its
opponents. 353-133. The Wild-
cats finished at 8-2, losing to
District 10 champion Palmetto
16-13, and the season finale to
Class 7A Fort Pierce 45-28.

Moralez Runs To State


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Junior Christian Moralez is
the lone Hardee cross country
runner to advance to the state
meet.
Moralez will fine tune his
technique for Saturday's state
run at Little Everglades course
in Dade City.
He kept some reserve as he
rounded the course at the Class
2A Region 3 meet at Chain Of
Lakes in Titusville on Saturday.
Trailing in 17th place with a
mile to go, Moralez picked it up
and passes nine runners to place
eighth with a time of 16:40.01.
Among the runners he passed
there were those from West
Show, two from Berkeley Prep,
Lehigh, Lemon Bay, Cocoa
Beach, Cocoa and two from


Anclote. Of the latter, he beat
one by 37 hundredths of a sec-
ond and the other by 88 hun-
dredths.
The winning time was
16:13.01 by Alexander Main of
Berkeley Prep, followed by
runners from Robinson, La-
Belle, Jesuit, Immokalee. Rock-
ledge and another Berkeley
Prep runner.
"The 'Cats ran into a-hornet's
nest at the regional meet on
Saturday. It was pretty much
considered the toughest region
in the state with 11 national
elite performances. Region I
had 10 elites but included all
classifications, IA through 4A
at one giant meet," commented
Hardee Coach Don Trew.
"The other regional meets
had half the elite qualifiers as


Region 3," added Trew. He
noted that Adrian Briones and
Allie Solis both set personal
records on Saturday. Briones
came in at 20:26 and Solis was
home at 23:46, only five min-
utes behind her teammate Febe
Murillo.
Hardee will lose Augustine,
Antonio Galvan, Reimundo
Garcia, Antonio Moreno and
Juan Vela to graduation.
Moralez, Briones, Brandon
Beatty, Alex Pierstorff, Josh
Wyatt, Leonel Rodriguez,
Adam Ramirez and Derek
Sambrano will return for the
boys squad. Murillo, Solis,
Veronica Ramirez and Adrianna
Arroyo are expected back to
anchor the girls squad.


Known for his famous ride in 1775 and his work as a silversmith, Paul Revere is said to
have put ads in a Boston newspaper offering his services as a dentist.

At the recent Hardee High School '50s & '60s reunion, the final day of the three-day event was an invitation to visit
the worship service at the home church of the various graduates. First Baptist of Wauchula was among those con-
gregations, as Pastor Alan Permenter welcomed alumni to the church, now in its 135th year. When these graduates
attended during their youth, the church was located on U.S. 17 near Main Street. The facility moved to its present
location in 1985. Pictured are those who chose to sit together as a group. (More were present throughout the con-
gregation and choir.) Shown above (front row, from left) are Mary Beth Bennett Bryant, Kay Hendry Cone, Patricia

researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-'
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate . .

75 YEARS AGO
The city of Wauchula, there
being only one by that name in
the world, should stake a claim
for the lowest number of sun-
less days. Last Friday, ol' Sol
apparently wasn't feeling "so,
hot," not peeping down on us a
.single time during the day.
Local weather observer R.O.
Evans reports this was only the
fourth sunless day in the last
four years. Over in St. Peters-
burg, "the Sunshine City," the
daily independent newspaper
gives 'a free issue each day the
sun doesn't shine, and has done
so for 11 times in the four years.

Tamiami Trail Tours an-
nounces new bus service rates
and fast freight service. New
rates from Wauchula are: to
Lakeland, 80 cents; Tampa
$1.25; Gainesville $2.80;
Miami $4.10 and New York


o16.75.

While King Cucumber is all
but out of the current vegetable
season, the pepper market
reached its peak with 18 cars of
them being shipped by buyers
from the auction block here.
There was only one car of
cucumbers. Cucumbers brought
$3.65 for a hamper, while pep-
pers, eggplant and yellow
squash were from $1.85 to
$2.35.
The local Ford dealer invites
people to test the new beautiful
1937 Ford V-8 in either the
improved 85-horse-power for
maximum performance or the
60-horse-power for maximum
economy. Improved carburetion
provides improved speed and
acceleration, at base price $480
plus accessories or payments of
$25 per month.

A Page One photo shows a
crane installing a huge evapora-
tor in the M&O citrus concen-
trate operation. It stands 56 feet
tall and has a capacity of 1,500
pounds. It will only take two
minutes for the entire process
from the time raw juice enters
the evaporator until it comes
out the other end as concentrate.

Hundreds of hopeful Hardee
hunters will take to the woods
and pastures tomorrow when
hunting season opens. Sports-
men have flooded County
Judge Clyde Maddox's office
this week-for hunting licenses.
The judge's office will be open
until noon tomorrow to take
care of the last-minute rush.

25 YEARS AGO
A workshop is being consid-
ered for county and city offi-
cials to discuss consolidation of
fire, police, emergency services
as well as -',me clerical and
maintenan.-.: costs. Some
thought the city of Wauchula
should add capacity to its sewer
plant because it will be needed
in other areas of the county.

A Page One photo shows
recently elected School Board
members Don Butler, Bill
Lambert and Mary Ann Cobb
being installed by County Judge
R. Earl Collins at last week's
meeting. School Board attorney
C.A. Boswell then explained
the duties of board members.
New Medico has recently
purchased 475 additional acres
off Vandolah Road adjacent to
the 400 acres on which the
head-injury facility is now
located. The purchase will
allow a cement road to replace
the existing dirt entry road,
which is in poor condition.
Local attorney Joel Evers plans
to request a special exception
for more acreage to expand the


facility, which has 74 residents.

$2.09 a pound, party hams for
$2.89 a pound, or a 26-ounce
pumpkin pie for $1.79.

10 YEARS AGO
Elderly Hardee County resi-
dents could get an additional
homestead exemption if an
ordinance is approved after a
public hearing on Nov. 29.
Florida Statute 196.075 allows
for the additional exemption,
from $10,000 to $25,000
phased in for homes with at
least one member over 65 and
adjusted gross income of less
than $20,000.

More than 500 small and
large businesses in the county
will face fire inspections this
year. As of Jan. 1, all counties
must meet the statewide code
and schedule of annual fire
inspections, said Public Safety
Director Paul Snodgrass last
week. Commissioners respond-
ed by agreeing to advertise for a
public hearing on its Fire
Prevention Ordinance and
approving a full-time fire
inspector position. An unfilled
emergency medical technician
position will be switched with
the firerinspector position.

Steve Hostetler, of the newly
formed company Fresh Flight
Development, reported on plans
for a proposed major cargo air-
port in northwestern Hardee
County. Also present at the
meeting last Tuesday at the
Health Department was airport
task force chairman Carl
Saunders.

A 35-22 win' at Wesley
Chapel Friday night boosted the
Hardee Wildcat hopes in post-
season playoffs. The Wildcats
were one of two wild-card
teams to make the playoffs, and
it gives them an opportunity to
avenge a loss to Lake Wales
earlier this season.

Half-time Sports Pub at
Bowl-of-Fun Lanes offers a
variety of specials, including
karaoke nights on Wednesdays

Tuesday and Wednesdays is
$1.50 a game from 8 to 11 p.m.

The


Lions Sell BBQ Dinners


The Wauchula Lions Club
provides sight services to
Hardee County citizens in need.
For the past seven years, the
club has held a BBQ dinner
called Lions Day. Purchasing a
BBQ ticket also includes entry
into a drawing for quite a few
prizes. The top three prizes this
*year are a flat screen TV from
CF Industries, an I-pad from
David Singletary/State Farm
Insurance and an i-phone from
Albritton Insurance. There are a
number of other prizes including
Main Street dollars, Java Caf6
gift cards and gift cards from
Cat's on Main, Jellybeans and
Kelly's Magnolia Tree.
Supporting this BBQ makes
it possible for students and oth-
ers to have visions services pro-
vided. Sevigny and Associates
Eyecare has partnered with the
Wauchula Lions Club to provide
vision screenings and glasses.
The Florida Lions Foundation
for the Blind works with Lions
Club across the State to provide
low cost eye surgeries. The
Wauchula Lions Club works


with the Hardee County Health
Department school nurses to
ensure no student is in need of
vision services.
The club also supports the
Hardee High School Lionettes
by providing scholarship oppor-
tunities for the Lionettes. Any,
Lionette member that sells 100
BBQ tickets automatically
receives a $500 scholarship
from the Lions Club and for
every 20 tickets the girls sell
their name is put in for a draw-
ing for another scholarship.
The dinners will be available
at Friday Night Live Nov.
18, 2011 from 5:30 to 7:30. The
drawings will not take place
until after 7:30 so even if you
do not have a ticket until Friday
you have the opportunity to win
one of the great prizes. Anyone
interested in tickets can contact
an HHS Lionette, Sevingy and
Associates or Lions Debbie
Murray at First National Bank
or Julie Watson at Hardee
County Title. Please support
good vision in Hardee County.

FINGER-LICKIN' GOOD Good news for barbecue
lovers: Yes, the McRib is back, but now there is a full-fledged bar-
becue restaurant in Hardee County!
JP's Smokehouse BBQ is officially opening in downtown
Wauchula on Tuesday. It will be a cafeteria-style 'restaurant.
Although it is a barbecue place, owners Jason and Penny Gray will
also serve several other fresh foods.
Offerings include pork, ribs, chicken, a variety of sandwiches,
and salads. There will also be a special treat during the Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas holidays, consisting of smoked ham and turkey.
Those with a sweet tooth will be delighted to know that JP's will
have a variety of desserts such as cookies, cakes, and pies.
JP's will also provide catering and takeout and, hopefully,

Gray decided to open the restaurant in response to the com-
munity. He says that for two years the community has asked him to
open his own restaurant.
JP's will be Gray's first business, though he has about 25
years' experience in the food industry, including in management. In
fact. Gray's first job was at a barbecue place when he was 15 years
old.
Even though he hasn't owned an actual restaurant, Gray has
become well-known in the community for his, catering and as a
vendor at places like Pioneer Park.
It's no surprise the public wants more of Gray's barbecue. He
has entered several barbecue competitions, including the Florida
Barbecue Association a few years back, and ended up being named
the Grand Champion.
He also has finished in the top 10 in over 35 competitions; in
some of those even making it to the top three!
Even though Gray is excited to open his restaurant, he knows
he is taking a risk, especially bec. he left a stable job at Mosaic.
He had been employed there for about nine years.
One thing that he has that has helped him through this some-
times stressful process is his faith in God. Gray feels that this is
something God wants him to do because at times when everything
seemed impossible, something else came up to save the situation.
Gray says people should come to his restaurant because of the
great food quality he promises to everyone who comes through his
door.
JP's is located on East Main Street next to the Chamber of
Commerce, where Sali's Sandwich Shoppe used to be.
It will be open Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesday
from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Thursday and Friday from 10:30 a.m. to
10 p.m.; and Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
So if you're a barbecue lover or a student who wants a place
to hang out and take advantage of the Wi-Fi, then make your way
to JP's Smokehouse BBQ.
