Governor Appoints Knight


To County Commission


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County once again
has a full board of commission-
ers.
Gov. Rick Scott recently ap-
pointed a replacement to the
District 3 seat held by Terry
Atchley since his election in
2008. Atchley resigned Sept. 23


to become the Wauchula city
manager.
Frederick "Rick" M. Knight
was chosen by Scott on
Tuesday and became a Hardee
County Commissioner effective
immediately. Knight said Scott
personally called him Tuesday
to break the news.

County Manager Marks Vary


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Well over a month after they
were completed, a report on the
evaluations on county manager
Lex Albritton were presented
recently.
At the Nov. 10 meeting of the
Hardee County Commission,
board attorney Ken Evers made
his report. He had been asked to
compile them into one report.
Evers said he simply added
up the numbers in each evalua-
tion column and divided them
by five. Although there are only
four commissioners now, Terry
Atchley was still on the com-
mission when the evaluations
were done Sept. 27, before he
accepted the position as
Wauchula city manager and
resigned from the commission.
The compilation Evers pre-
sented gave Albritton marks
varying from 7 to 5 on a scale of
I to 10..The numbers were
lower than the first evaluation
last year, primarily because
Commissioner Grady Johnson
gave the manager 0 in every
category.
Evers also said he merged
comments made by more than
one commissioner into the list-
ing of strengths and weakness-
es, similar to last year's com-
ments. Strengths listed were:
job knowledge and technical
skills; budgeting; legislative

issues; strong leadership; and
strong legislative agenda.
Weakness noted were: relation-
ship with public, interpersonal
communication with the public;
and improvement of attitudes
with respect to customer serv-
ice.
Commissioners discussed the
evaluation overview. It was
approved or accepted on a 3-1
vote, with Commissioner Grady
Johnson dissenting, because "it
doesn't accurately reflect my
numbers. Being a public ser-


vant is difficult. It's not person-
al. It's a matter of professional
public service or not."
Sweetwater resident Nancy
Craft told commissioners the
evaluation had nothing to do
with Mr. Albritton. "For years
I've been saying the problem is
the commission. You have to
take the blame, knowing what is
going on and doing nothing
about it. The buck stops with
the commission."
Terry Atchley
Atchley 's total of the 18


items listed totaled 139 points,
mostly 9s and 8s, one 5 and two
6s. He notes "Lex continues to
improve on his communications
skills; he responds quickly to
requests made of him or tasks
assigned to him."
As commission chairman,
Atchley gave objectives of pri-
oritizing and scheduling board
workshops and needs to be
more proactive in recommend-
ing needed changes in policy
and procedures. He nites that

Community Gives Back


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Have you ever noticed a
woman, usually in a blue skirt
and white blouse, walking
around town?
That woman is Hardee
County native Nona McElfresh.
Nona enjoys walking anywhere
she needs to go. She says that
after walking for so many years,
she doesn't get tired anymore.
You may also remember


Nona from the Hardee County
Public Library. She used to
work there for several years,
and was very much appreciated.
She would put books back on
their shelves, and help anyone
that needed it.
It seemed that Nona knew
that library better than anyone
else. She would always know
where every-book was without
having to search on a computer.
Although, if for some reason


she couldn't find what she was
looking for, determined she
would search and search until
she found it.
Not only does she know
books, she knew people too.
Dee Shackelford said Nona
seemed to understand what
types of books a person would
enjoy and would sometimes
recommend books to those that
came looking.
See COMMUNITY 2A


Here Nona sits on the couch in her home after everything was redone. A lot of hard
work went into making her home as comfortable as possible.

Bond Lowered,


Manley Released


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Circuit Judge Michael
Radabaugh lowered the bond
for Michael Manley at a
Tuesday morning hearing in
Bartow
Bond went from $100,000
for each of the two counts of
grand theft and money launder-
ing down to $15,000 per
offense. Manley's lawyer,
Rusty Franklin of Bartow,
asked for the hearing to apply
for a bond reduction because he
felt $200,000 was too high.
Manley was released from
the Hardee County Jail at 3:15
Tuesday afternoon.
A Nebbia hold was kept in
place, which means any money
for bond must be proven to
have come from legitimate and
legal means before he can be
released.
Along with the lowered
bond, Manley must adhere to


the previously imposed stipula-
tions that he surrender his pass-
port and cannot travel outside
of Hardee, Highlands or Polk
counties.
Radabaugh also issued a gag
order for the case, meaning no
* one involved with the case is
,allowed to discuss it.
As of Tuesday afternoon,
Manley was still listed as an
inmate in the Hardee County
jail.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier could
not provide any updates on the
case Monday citing it was still
under investigation.
Major Randy Dey of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
urges anyone who used
Manley's services -as a trustee
or as a signatory on an account
to contact Det. Shivers at 773-
0304, ext 260.
Customers who used Manley
for accounting or tax purposes
only can contact his office.

S-. Kelly's Column
By Jim



Waste Generated Products of Venice was incorporated in May
17, 2011, and wants Hardee County to co-sign a $30 million loan,
give them land and be a partner in a pair of plants that would con-
vert garbage to fuel and products.
Waste Generated Products is located at 981 Ridgewood Ave. in
Venice. The registered agent is United States Corporation Agents
of Tampa. WGP officers are David Wardlaw, Venice, president;
James F. Johnson Jr., Richmond Hill, Ga., treasurer; Rick Fishman, -
Venice, secretary; and Guy Wardlaw, Venice, director.
The company wants to build a Gasification and Powder
Impression Molding (PIM) facility and a gasification plant that
would turn trash into energy. A product from PIM would include
sewer pipes. This could replace the county's need for a landfill. The
company would mine our existing landfill for trash, creating
power, fuels and products and creating 150 to 200 new local jobs,
said Fishman, who made a presentation recently to a Hardee
County Commission workshop.
Commissioners were presented a "memo of understanding"
for a 25-year agreement, plus three optional 25-year renewal agree-
ments. WGP would design, build and operate the gasification plant
and PIM plant in Hardee and do the marketing and sales. WGP
would manufacture energy, fuels and products depending on spe-
cific contracts with Hardee County and future customer needs.
WGP and Hardee County would be partners. WGP "has
arranged funding sources for the construction and operation" of the
plants. "Hardee County agrees to co-sign a note with WGP for the
initial funding of the plants not to exceed $30 million." WGP will
produce the county with an insurance bond to hold Hardee County
harmless from any liability associated with or arising from co-sign-
ing the note. This shared note would enable WGP to proceed in ini-
tiating funding for the plants.
Upon funding, Hardee would deed the property site for the
plants. WGP through marketing would promote regionally and
nationally the "efforts of Hardee County to be a leader in the field
of sustainable, recyclable and renewable waste to energy conver-
sion technology. WGP expects to bring interested parties through-
out the U.S. and internationally to Hardee County to see the plants.
WGP will make its best effort to support and make available its
personnel to Hardee County as we work in partnership for a better
community."
The commission is going to look into this proposal..It has
already gone through the office of county economic development
director Bill Lambert.
County Commissioner Grady Johnson said he wants proof the
new technology works and insists on several public hearings on
this gigantic proposal so citizens can learn more. .
A brand new company with new technology wanting the coun-
ty to be a partner, donate land and co-sign a $30 million loan? > .
Hopefully the county commissioners will make a thorough.
investigation and make a sound decision, which I hope and think-
they will. Hardee citizens and taxpayers deserve no less.
County Commissioner Minor Bryant said the proposal 'sounds
"too good to be true." I agree and do not think the county should,
become partners.
Hank uliflman of Forit Green is skeptical' of thisproject and ''
expects to voice his concerns at the next County commission meet-
ing on Thursday, Dec. 1, at 8:30 a.m.

The 9-2 Hardee Wildcats played a great game Friday'in the'.
playoffs in defeating district champion Lake Wales ,18-13 on the
road. The Highlanders were 9-1. '. ,:.
The Cats play this Friday at district champion 10-1 Palmetto.
The Tigers defeated the Wildcats earlier this season 16-13 on the
last minute 49-yard field goal. The Cats are a very special football
team this year. -

We wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving holiday.

Knight will have to resign his
current position as chair-
man/mayor of the Wauchula
City Commission. His replace-
ment, chosen' by the remaining
six city commissioners, will fill
the At-Large seat until the 2012
elections.
Knight's term on the county
commission will last until iext
November which is when
Atchley's term was slated to
face re-election. Knight will
then have to run for election if
he wants to remain as a county
commissioner.
He said Tuesday he was
excited about the appointment
but also feels a little sad
because he has developed such
a good relationship with the city
staff since he took office in
June.
Knight said the city commis-
sion accomplished a lot since he
took office and the city is now
operating smoothly.
He said the city is in good
hands with Atchley now hired
as the city manager and the new
power contract being finalized.
Kenny Baker will assume the
role of Mayor and a new vice-
mayor must be chosen by the
commission.
City commissioners will
soon begin taking applications
from people interested in filling
Knight's seat until November
2012, when the permanent
replacement would be decided
by the voters in the city.
Knight said the governor
congratulated him when he
called but also told him he was
going to keep him accountable.

By REV. JAMES L. SNYDER
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Thanksgiving is my kind of
holiday. Apart from the
"thanks" part, the primary pur-
pose of this celebration is eat-
ing. That is the one thing I do
quite well.
Thanksgiving is the begin-
ning of a feasting frenzy that
would make Richard Simmons
sweat to the goodies. Any
thoughts of dieting at this time
of the year are merely blowing
in the wind. Hopefully, not in
my direction.
Our Pilgrim Fathers came up
with the idea of a Thanksgiving
feast. The Pilgrim Mothers
were too busy doing the wash
and caring for the children to
think of any more work.
The Pilgrim Fathers were sit-
ting around waiting for some-
one to invent television so they
could all watch a football game
when someone had an idea.
Most ideas are born in the midst
of great boredom. That is why
so many of them are...well...stu-
pid.
"There's nothing to do," one
bored Pilgrim Father said.
"Let's get together and have a
feast." Because nothing else
was happening, the other
Pilgrim Fathers got excited
about this idea. The Pilgrim
Mothers, however, had some
different thoughts about this
crazy feast idea.
After all, they would have to
do all the work and Oprah
Winfrey had not been born yet
to lead them in a chorus of
whining and complaining and
getting in touch with their real
feelings.
The Pilgrim Mothers wanted
a Tupperware party, but since it
was not yet a two-party system,
they could only do one party.
The Pilgrim Fathers won this
one.
However, like the good
Puritan wives they were, they
humored their husbands and
began preparations for the first
Thanksgiving feast. Because
this was the first Thanksgiving,
it was a simple affair compared
with the ones to follow.
At the first one nobody said,
"We've always done it this



COMMUNIff
Continued From 1A
So big is the effect Nona has
on people that even though
Nona retired from the Public
Library four years ago there are
those that still to this day ask
about her.
People that know Nona,
speak highly of her. She is
described as being "a kind and
gentle person."
Because of the admiration
people have for her, many
decided to come together and
help her in a time of need.,,
Nona has lived in the same
home for 16 years. In fact, the
house was made just for her.
One day, a friend of Nona's
noticed her house needed a little
paint touch up. After that this
friend thought maybe there was
more to be done.
When her friend started to
look further, she noticed that
not only did the house need
paint, but more could be done
on the inside of Nona's home.
Nona's friend then decided to
get help elsewhere.
It's then when Nona's friend
applied for a Wauchula Main
Street Grant. Fortunately this
friend was not the only one that
wanted to help.
Not only was the grant
awarded for Nona, Nona's
friend also received Peace
River Electric' Co. Inc.'s grant
called Operation Round Up and
started getting calls from people
that had seen or wanted to give
something for Nona.
Friends, neighbors and pro-
fessionals helped with land-
scaping, installing heating and
air conditioning, and fixing a
leaky shed; they also construct-
ed a ramp and installed new
handrails for her. Blinds were
installed, a better bookcase was
brought in, and other improve-
ments were done.
Nona realizes she couldn't
have done this on her own and
is very thankful and apprecia-
tive to everyone that helped her.


She is very happy with the end
result and couldn't believe that
so many people were so willing
to help her. She believes that
everyone should help one
another in hard times.
After asking several people
why they believed so many
came together to help Nona, the
answer was usually always the
same, "because it's just good
old Hardee County."

By sowing frugality we reap
liberty, a golden harvest.


way." Because it was never
done before. However, the sec-
ond Thanksgiving was beset
with this sort of thing. A tradi-
tion, someone wisely pointed
out, is something done at least
once.
What the Pilgrim Mothers
did not count on was company
for dinner. After all, they were
thousands of miles from their
nearest relatives with a big
pond between them. They
assumed, and rightly so, that
they were safe from the intru-
sion of company on what would
be the heaviest workday for the
kitchen crew.
Have you ever noticed that
when you are planning a feast
of some kind, relatives who
never bother you the rest of the
year (something to be thankful
for) seem to gravitate to your
gravy bowl?
There is nothing like unex-
pected company to put pizzazz
in a Thanksgiving celebration.
Who wants pizza for Thanks-
giving when there is so much
turkey?
Imagine the Pilgrim Mother's
surprise when the Pilgrim
Fathers told them (probably on
Thanksgiving morning) .that
they had invited guests for the
feast. I can imagine some ears
were stinging that first
Thanksgiving Day. The Pilgrim
Fathers braved through the
stinging rebukes from their
wives...for months.
Perhaps the biggest anomaly
of Thanksgiving is the moun-
tain of leftovers the next day
and for weeks to follow. No
matter how much turkey is gob-
bled up or how many people are
around that Thanksgiving table,
the leftovers are enormous.
There is more turkey on
Friday than on Thanksgiving.
I cannot prove this, but I
highly suspect the turkeys we
have today keep growing even
after we cook them. Maybe
when placed in a cold refrigera-
tor over night, they expand.
I really do not know what
takes place, but something hap-
pens to that turkey when left
overnight in a refrigerator. The
big challenge is how to prepare
leftover turkey so it does not


look or taste like turkey.
Thanksgiving is a marvelous
time for family and friends to
get together to celebrate the
goodness of the Lord. Each
family has its own special tradi-
tion that seems to bring it
together. This year, especially,
we have so much to be thankful.
For some it starts with a
Thanksgiving Eve service.
Gathering as a congregation to
express to God thanks for
another year of bounty and
blessing is important for
Christians.
Personally, I like a Thanks-
giving eve service over a
Thanksgiving morning service.
In the evening service, you do
not have to rush through the
celebration to get home in time
for the big feast. Giving thanks
to God should be a leisurely
thing, not something rushed
through while thinking of
something else.
At Thanksgiving, we should
bring a bouquet of blessing that
fills the room with a sweet fra-
grance of praise that lingers all
year long.
Some of the best and most
fragrant bouquets are the small
ones. Remembering the big
blessings is easy. The smaller
blessings are much harder to
keep in mind. Some of them we
even take for granted.
This Thanksgiving I am
going to make a point to look
over some blessing I have been
overlooking. It is those small
blessing that truly sustains us
throughout the year.
The Bible reminds us why we
are to give thanks, not only at
Thanksgiving time, but also all
year long. "But thanks be to
God, which giveth us the victo-
ry through our Lord Jesus
Christ. Therefore, my beloved
brethren, be ye stedfast, un-
moveable, always abounding in
the work of the Lord, foras-
much as ye know that your
labour is not in vain in the
Lord" (1 Corinthians 15:57-58
KJV).
There is so much to thank
God for; one day is not near
enough. Let us.thank God every
day for His goodness. Even for
leftover blessings.


Congratulations to the Hardee Wildcats in winning the quarter-
final playoff game against Lake Wales on Highlander turf.
Now, it's time to advance to the semi-final game, a rematch of
the district championship game. Since Palmetto is a champion and
Hardee a runner-up, the game is at Palmetto at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
A win Friday could put Hardee hosting the regional champi-
onship game against the winner of the Immokalee-Cape Coral
matchup.

In other football news, Ezayi Youyoute got in the Georgia
Southern game against Alabama last week for three plays in the
final minute, including a 37-yard run. The ESPN commentator
said, "He's as hard to stop as his name is to pronounce."
Youyoute was instrumental in the Southern Conference win
over Wofford on Nov. 12. Keep an eye on him and his team in the
upcoming subdivision (formerly Division II) playoffs.

In cross country, Christian Moralez got stuck in the pack at the
start of the state race, which had 187 runners. By the first mile
mark, he had moved up to 65 and by the second mile he was 47. In
the final mile-plus, he passed four who had beaten him at regionals
and ended up 14th overall. Quite a feat! It was enough to earn him
an automatic bid to the AAU National Championships. For now,
he'll turn his attention to basketball.

Boys hoops start Tuesday at home against Sebring. Girls hoops
began last week with a home win over Frostproof, but quickly
declined with injuries to Tamara St. Fort and Jakayshia Lindsey,
resulting in losses to Sebring and Walker. Hopefully, the injury bug
will settle down during the Thanksgiving holidays.

In soccer, the boys started with a pair of close wins, while the
girls are having an uphill battle against teams which have been in
action a couple of weeks longer than Hardee. The girls scored three
times in Thursday's game at home against Lake Placid but had one
goal called back, so lost 5-2.

Albritton stays current on
changing and pending legisla-
tive issues, works to maintain
employee morale and maintains
a balanced budget.

Dale Johnson
Johnson's total was the high-
est at 153. The lowest grade is
7, the highest 10 for accessi-
bility.
He summarizes it "Overall,
t'he manager has suitable and
sufficient skill and knowledge
and is properly qualified to
manage the county. He provides
strong leadership, understands
the big picture of the county's
problems as well as its assets..
He can evaluate the difference
in a good and bad project, effec-
tively teaches and leads staff in
regard to government proce-
dures and regulations, coordi-
nating the various depart-
ments."
For accomplishments, "John-
son notes the manager has con-
sistently produced a sound and
workable budget, created an
effective and strong legislative
agenda, established a compre-
hensive road improvement plan
and sustainable plan for equip-
ment renewal. It's obvious he
knows the ins and outs of coun-
ty government."

The Southwest Florida Water
Management District (SWFWMD)
announces the following public
workshop to which all interested
persons are invited:
Ribbon-cutting and opening
ceremony for the Frances
Archbold Hufty Learning Center
and Adrian Archbold Lodge.

Highlands County commission-
ers may attend.

Johnson says, "The current
policy does not allow the man-
ager to respond to commission-
ers in meetings as needed. This
policy should be changed. I
have never known the manager
to go against county policy
even though he may not be in
agreement with them."
Finally, Johnson's goals for
the manager are: to interact
with the public in a more pleas-
ant manner, his mannerisms and
tone of voice; be more support-
ive of possible economic devel-
opment projects, large or small;
and be more positive to repre-
sentatives visiting Hardee
County.

Sue Birge
Birge's total is 138 points. In
response to a question from for-
mer commissioner Gordon
Norris on improvement in
weaknesses, Birge said, "I went
to the same people I saw when I
was campaigning. Most say the
issues have been resolved and
improved."
At the end of section one, she
commented, "I have. been
pleased with the knowledge and
understanding that Lex has as
well as staying current with leg-
islative issues. I am well
pleased with his response time
when I as a commissioner
request anything," she contin-
ued.
"Sometimes personal com-
munication skills as well as
body language needs to be
guarded more carefully. We, as
county employees do not have
the luxury, whether in a public
meeting or one-on-one con-
frontation, to lose control. Lex
must always keep this in mind.
He must remember that even
when our buttons are being
pushed every day, our attitude
and the attitude of our staff
must remain positive."
She adds, "His plate is
always going to be full. Placing
the right people in the right
position is imperative to his
ability to delegate responsibili-
ties and somewhat lighten his
own load. He should strive to
improve the county image in
good customer service and
demand it from his employees,
it is not an option,"she noted.
"The overall picture I have
received from Lex is that he is


pa ,aunate about the county s
business. His knowledge, tech-
nical skills and cooperative
with me as a new commissioner
has been so far a good experi-
ence," she concluded.

Minor Bryant
The senior member of the
commission, Bryant's rating
totaled 112. "I try to look at the
real world. There's differences
in personality. Nobody is truly a
10, nobody's perfect. Some-
where around 5 is good, it's a
passing grade."
Bryant termed Albritton "a
work in progress, has improved,
but is not there yet." He gave
Albritton the highest marks, 8s,
in accessibility, timeliness, job
knowledge and sharing of infor-
mation with all commissioners.
Bryant made no comments on
objectives and goals for the
county manager.

Grady Johnson
As noted above, Johnson
gave Albritton an 0 on all 18
items. He again recommended
Albritton's dismissal, a motion
he has made three times during
the last year without getting a
second on the motion.
His only comments were not.
on the evaluation form per se,
but an attached two-page
"Action Plan which is follow-
ing.

County Manager Lex Albritton
Performance Evaluation

Action Plan-DISMISSAL

We have been asked to evaluate
the County Manager, however,
we have no input from him
regarding his accomplishments
nor goals. Our only evaluation
can be of our interaction with
him in our attempts to have
public meetings and make deci-
sions. Mr. Albritton has made
zero effort to acknowledge the
statutory authority of the
BOCC. I have found that he
consistently undermines, and
defies the BOCC authority, pro-
motes and directs insubordinate
acts of other county employees
with absolute disrespect to the
Constitutional Officers of this
county in spite of the fact that
he serves at the pleasure of the
BOCC.


Mr. Albritton has shown that he
fails to understand the limits of
his authority and has exhibited
behavior in public meetings that
includes chastising the Board of
County Commissioners, grand-
standing, and derision towards
those who appear to be chal-
lenging his authority. Mr.
Albritton's leadership has been
that of making every attempt to
isolate and disregards ethical
standards that his position
requires.

On September 9, 2011 in a pub-
lic meeting Mr. Albritton acted
irrationally in an attempt to
prove to his audience his own-
ership of Hardee County. Mr.
Albritton repeatedly challenged
the Commissioners to fire him
or leave him alone, (tape avail-
able). At that time Mr. Albritton
gave a clear example of his dis-
honesty when he justified his
scolding of the Commissioners
that the Board went outside the
county to get information
instead of using staff although
he knew that the Board had
been actively obtaining infor-
mation from staff. He lied in
order to grandstand to his audi-
ence. Mr. Albritton appeared to
feel challenged when he real-
ized information that had been
obtained from the Clerk's office
clarified data obtained from
him that was not complete or
was incomprehensible. It is
clear that Mr. Albritton refuses
to accept any authority and is
incapable of accepting direction'
if it does not
suit him or if that direction
reveals information he does not
wish known.

I have no confidence that Mr.
Albritton has any intention to
protect the integrity of the
Board of County Commission-
ers and shows little respect for
the governing body of Hardee
County.

As an example, throughout the
events of the 911 transfer from
Polk to Hardee County, and
through the budget process Mr.
Albritton's lack of ethical stan-
dards was apparent when he
allowed and encouraged a
county employee (Fire Chief
Michael Choate) to challenge
the Board. During a public

meeting Mr. Choate accused the
Board, the Sheriff and the Clerk
of supplying incorrect informa-
tion while unable to provide
factual and complete informa-
tion to the Board nor inquiring
citizens. This is financial infor-
mation that should have been
readily at hand, especially since
those figures were well known
to be of particular interest and
.controversial.

Under Mr. Albritton's apparent
direction, approval and support
for Mr. Choate and his tactics
(in the past Mr. Choate said to
me "say anything you have to,
to get what you want because
that is the way it is done") I wit-
nessed these individuals gener-
ate an uproar and promote fear
mongering by county employ-
ees among the citizens.

The day after the fire budget
hearing was another example of
undermining the BOCC when
prior to the start of the day's
meeting I requested two addi-
tional documents of Fire/-
Rescue. The day's hearing was
unrelated to Fire/EMS however
this request ignited a response
by Mr. Albritton to direct an
onslaught of Fire/EMS employ-
ees (the majority of which do
not live in the county nor pay
taxes here) to attend a public
workshop in an attempt to deter

this county and intimidate the
Board. The office manager/sec-
retary was brutalized by Fire
and EMS personnel making
calls to her with accusations of
wrong doing, and secret meet-
ings being held by the Com-
missioners. At no time did Mr.
Albritton put a stop to it.

Under these circumstances, for
any county manager to second
guess a Commissioner's intent,
then direct and allow county
employees to insect themselves
into public workshops and
meetings shows a complete lack
of ethical standards as well as a
lack of responsibility to the
budget process and to the
BOCC. Was this insubordina-
tion or was it complete inept-
ness. Either way these actions
are totally unacceptable. As a
Commissioner I attempted to
state my intent and immediately
was interrupted by Mr. Albrit-
ton who announced that he dis-
agreed with me and my intent
therefore justifying his actions
for disrupting a public meeting.

Mr. Albritton's actions clearly
shows a complete lack of pro-
fessional ethical standards
which leaves me with zero con-
fidence in his ability to recog-
nize the ethical standards that
are required to hold the position
of Hardee County Manager.

I Heard Your Voice In The Wind Today -
I heard your voice in the wind today
and I turned to see your face;
The warmth of the wind caressed me
as I stood silently in place.

I felt your touch in the sun today
as its warmth filled the sky;
I closed my eyes for your embrace
and my spirit soared high.

I saw your eyes in the window pane
as I watched the falling rain;
It seemed as each raindrop fell
it quietly said your name.

I held you close in my heart today
it made me feel complete;
You may have died...but you are not gone
you will always be a part of me.

/ As long as the sun shines...
the wind blows...
the rain falls...
You will live on inside of me forever
for that is all my heart knows.

8A The Herald-Advocate, November 24,'2011


Bj MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Gayle Knight was named the
Mildred and Doyle E. Carlton
Jr. citizen of the year for 2011 at
the annual dinner of the Hardee
County Chamber of Commerce.
Knight, known as simply
"Miss G" to many, is a retired
elementary school teacher and a
champion for numerous chil-
dren growing up in Hardee
County.
Millie Bolin, who introduced
Knight, told the audience how
Miss G has touched the lives of


so many children throughout
the years in Hardee County.
Knight will do whatever she
can to be a positive influence on
a child or help them if they are
struggling with school.
Even though she is retired,
Knight has not lost the desire to
help and educate people. Bolin
said she has seen first hand just
how effective Miss G can be
with a student that is not a big
fan of school work.
Knight is also known for her
kind words she drops in the
mail from time to time.


Millie Bolin presented Gayle Knight with the Chamber's
citizen of the year award.


Rodger Brutus provided entertainment for the evening
by playing the guitar and singing.

These notes mean a lot to
those receiving them, Bolin
said, especially now since
receiving a hand written card is
not very common.
Bolin said she was glad Miss
G was such a rebel and refused
to send an email or other less
personal messages.
The lives and minds of many
children in the community are
better off thanks to the tutoring
and encouragement offered by
Gayle "Miss G" Knight.

check with the building depart-

install electricity or plumbing in
the shed, you need to check on
the need for these permits and
notify your insurance company
when you increase the value of
the property.

Over $9.6 million of the
funds received are concerned
with Hurricane Charley revenue
and income, which have been
closed out. Those for Francis
and Jeanne are much less and
.iot closed out as Scarborough
Road and Ten Mile Grade proj-
ects are still being completed.
The money FEMA says was
overpaid, $1,065,082.10 from
the 2003 and 2004 storms that
damaged a majority of Hardee
County, amounts to just seven
percent of the total budget.
To date, there--are- 69--other
FEMA applicants around the
state which have received
repayment demands for more
than $45 million and many
more that have not been closed
out yet.
Williams prepared a report
for the Hardee County Com-
mission on the reported FEMA
overpayments and a plan for
repayment. Part of that would
include invoicing FEMA for the
administrative fees of process-
ing the 250-plus work orders
over the past years. That could
reduce the indebtedness to
about a half million. The plan
outlined the way to pay off the
other amounts.
When the commission con-
sidered everything, it decided it
would be best to wait until the
final projects are closed out and
see if that further reduced the-
amount owed to the federal
agency.


Drug Dealer Arrested-Again


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
For the. secotid time in a
about seven months, a Crews-
ville area woman has been
arrested on major drug charges.
According to Sheriff Arnold
Lanier, Mary Frances Skinner,
48, of 6894 George Marsh Road
was arrested last Wednesday.
Since she was still out on bond
on charges from her April 27
arrest, there will be a request to
deny bond under the Parker Act,
which allows for detaining peo-
ple re-arrested on the same or
similar major charges.
According to detective re-
ports, members of the county-
wide Drug Task Force (DTF)
closely monitored a confiden-
tial informant to purchase
methamphetamine from Skin-
ner at her residence, receiving
2.1 grams (incTuding packag-
,ing) for $150.

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Wildcats are moving on
after beating Lake Wales in a
thrilling game Friday night in
the first round of the Class 5A
playoffs.
This week Hardee gets a
much anticipating rematch with
District 10 champion Palmetto
which beat the Wildcats Oct. 21
on a last second, 49-yard field
goal after the 'Cats led almost
the entire game. Palmetto shut
down Auburndale 49-0 Friday
night. Because the Tigers are
district champion and the
Wildcats a runner-up Hardee
has to travel to Palmetto for the
Friday 7:30 p.m. game.
In last week's game, the
Wildcats were ready to play and
looked determined from the
start as the defense forced Lake
Wales to a quick three and out.
Hardee took over with good
field position at its 48-yard line
and the offense went right to
work.
Senior quarterback Colby
Baker scrambled around the
right end on the first play for a
28-yard gain and Lake Wales
tacked on a late hit which
moved the ball to the 13.
Andrew Hooks ran up the
middle for 10 and a first down
to the 3. On the next play, it was
Hooks again up the middle
untouched for the touchdown.
Mikey Retana, filling in for the
injured Octavio Alvarez,
missed the PAT making it 6-0
with-9:08 left in the first quar-
ter.
The Highlanders took over at
their 28 and picked up a couple
first downs, moving toward
midfield. A screen pass by
Rolan Milligan was intercepted
by Keyon Brown at midfield
and returned all the way to the
Lake Wales 25-yard line.
An errant shotgun snap sent
the 'Cats back 11 yards and
Hardee was forced to punt, with
Andrew Hooks filling in for
Alvarez and pinning the
Highlanders down at the 9.
Three plays later, Milligan
threw deep down the left side-
line and Deonte Evans out
leaped the receiver and came
down with the ball at the Lake
Wales 40.
After picking up a first
down, Baker threw toward the
goal line for Evans who was
interfered with, drawing a flag
and moving the ball down to the
12-yard line. Facing a fourth-
and-four, Baker rolled right on
a keeper and gained 5 yards and
a first down to the 1.


threw deep to Evans who out
jumped two Lake Wales
defenders and came down with
the ball, then eluded both of
them and ran an additional 20
yards for the touchdown.
Baker was stopped short of
the goal line on the two-point
try and the Wildcat's led 18-7
with 52 seconds remaining in
the third quarter.
Lake Wales then went on a
lengthy drive converting long
third downs and eventually
scored on an 18-yard touch-
down reception by Christian
Blocker. The PAT made it 18-13
with 5:47 left in the game.
Hardee took over and just
needed to keep the clock run-
ning to secure the game.
Faced with a second-and-17,
Aaron Barker ripped off a huge
17-yard run on his first carry of
the night for a first down.
Barker picked up another
first down on a four yard run
three plays later and Hardee
was one more first down away
from running out the clock.
Faced with a third-and-4 Baker
faked a handoff and kept
around the left end, broke a
tackle and raced 54 yards to the
end zone but offsetting penal-
ties meant the down must be
replayed.
This time Baker ran the same
play to the right side and after
picking up a big block by
Keonte Holley, Baker picked up
7 yards and took a knee to let

Second-year Head Coach
Buddy Martin told his players
after the game he couldn't be
prouder of the team's fight and
effort.
With the students being off
from school the entire week and
the Thanksgiving holiday,
Martin is switching around the
practice schedule to keep the
team focused on Palmetto.
A Monday morning practice
was followed by afternoon ses-


sions on Tuesday and Wednes-
day. Thursday the team will
have an early practice before
having the rest of the day off to
spend with their families.
Friday the players will as-
semble early for a meal and a
movie before heading to
Palmetto.
Martin was very proud of his
team during his first playoff
win as a head coach and he said
it couldn't have come against a
better team. Lake Wales'was a
big rival for Martin as a player
growing up in Bartow plus the
Highlanders have ended the

Wildcats' post-season hopes a
few times over the last two
decades.
Now he is ready to turn his
attention to Palmetto. He said
the team won the game for three
and a half quarters last time and
Hardee has to find a way to fin-


,ish.
He has made few adjust-
ments with the offensive line
after that game and said it will
be hard for Palmetto to beat the
Wildcats twice in the same year.
The kickoff will be at 7:30 in
Palmetto.


Hooks went off the right end
for a touchdown the next play
and Hardee pushed its lead to
12-0 after a failed two-point
conversion.
The two teams traded punts
before Lake Wales took over at
the Hardee 49-yard line with
6:21 left in the half.
Milligan found Antwon-
Hadley open-for a 22-yard co7 n
pletion to start the drive. Four
plays later Milligan found the
end zone with an 8-yard keeper
around the' left end. Tate
Mathewson added the PAT
making it 12-7 with 3:47 left in
the half.
Hardee punted and Lake
Wales could not score before
the half ended when Milligan
was sacked for a 16-yard loss
by Maxon DelHomme.
Hardee received to start the
second half. A third down pass
by Baker was picked by
Milligan and returned 30 yards
to the Hardee 5-yard line.
The Hardee defense denied
the end zone and Mathewson
was called on and made a 23-
yard field goal. A roughing the
kicker penalty was called and
Lake Wales Head Coach Rod
Schaffer elected to take the
points off the board for first-
and-goal at the 3.
A fumbled snap lost 7 yards
on the first play and was fol-
lowed by two incomplete pass-
es. Mathewson was called back
out for a 27-yard field goal that
he missed and the Wildcats
escaped the scare.
Tlhe offense picked up one
first down and was "forced to
punt back to the Highlanders
who took over at the Hardee 43
after a nice return.
Two plays later Milligan was
intercepted for the third time in -
the game by Baker at the
Hardee 16-yard line with 4:51
left in the third quarter. Hooks
and Baker each ran for a first
down moving the ball close to
midfield. "

Hardee


Living


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
But I trust in you, 0 Lord, I
say, "You are my God!" My
times are in Your hands.
Psalm 31:14-15a (NIV)
FRIDAY
Instead, you ought to say, "if
the Lord wills, we shall live
and we shall do this or that."
As it is, you boast in your
arrogance. All such boasting
is evil. Whoever knows what
is right to do and fails to do
it, for him it is sin.
James 4:15-17 (RSV)
SATURDAY
He is the Rock; His work is
perfect. Everything He does
is just and fair. He is a faithful
God who does no wrong;
how just and upright He is.
Deuteronomy 32:4 (NLT)
SUNDAY
Jesus said, "Heaven and
earth will pass away; My
words will not pass away.
But about that day and hour
no one knows. ...only the
Father in heaven. As things
were in Noah's day, eating
and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, so will
they be when the S on of
Man comes again. ...Keep
alert, then; for you do not
know on what day your Lord
is to come."
Matthew 24:35-38a, 42 (NEB)
MONDAY
Be generous. Invest in acts
of charity. Charity yields high
returns. Don't hoard you
goods; spread them around.
Be a blessing to others. This
could be your last night.
Ecclesiastes 1:1-2 (ME)

Even now, dear children, we
are getting near the end of
things. You have heard, I
expect, the prophecy about
the coming of the antichrist.
... every spirit that does no
confess that Jesus is of God,
This is the spirit of antichrist,
which is already in the world
... Everyone who really
believes that Jesus is the
Christ proves himself one of
God's family.
I John 2:18, 4:3, 5:1 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
But, if I were you, I would call
on God and bring my prob-
lem before Him. God does
wonders that cannot be
understood; He does so
many miracles they cannot
be counted. He gives rain to
the earth and sends water
on the fields. He make the
humble person important
and lifts the sad to places of
safety.
John 5:8-11 (NCV)


Used Drugs

Collected
An Oct. 29 "Take Back" event
for local citizens to turn in un-
used, expired or un-wanted
human and pet medications for
safe and proper disposal was suc-
cessful.
An estimated 17.4 pounds of
recovered pharmaceuticals were
collected and disposed of by in-
cineration. That adds to the 87
pounds of previously collected or
recovered pharmaceuticals.
The collection was an effort of
the Hardee County Alliance for
Substance Abuse, the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office and the
Wauchula Police Depart-ment in
cooperation with the Drdg En-
forcement Agency's national
event "Purge Your Pills RX Drop
Off.," which occurs twice awyear.
More than seven million
Americans currently abuse pre-
scription drugs. Each day, about
2,500 teems use prescription
drugs to get high for the first
time, with a majority coming
from the home medicine cabinet.
To prevent that from happen-
ing, both over-the-counter and
prescription medicines can be
taken to the Sheriff's Office by
arrangement. Call Dep. Patricia
Richey between 8:30 a.m. and
3:30 p.m. at 773-0304, ext. 230.

Learning Like Bee A New Daycare is now open for your
little ones.
Busy Bees opened up its yellow door on Oct.3 to children aged
six weeks to 12 years old.
It all started with Hardee native Crystal Beasley Johnson,
wanting nothing but the best for her 1-year-old girl. Six months
ago Crystal got an idea, after seeing a house her husband Jason
Johnson who works for Flores & Flores Inc. was selling, to open
up a daycare center.
It was then that this former dental hygienist started the process
'o soon be able open her very own daycare.
Although not having owned a daycare before, Crystal has
taken courses in child psychology and readied herself by taking the
courses necessary to be able to properly run a daycare. Not to men-
tion the best experience there is, having a child of her own.


PHOTOS BY MARIA TRUJILLO
Shown here is Busy Bees with Its peculiar yellow door.
Busy Bees received Its name after Crystal's Aunt Belinda
who she affectionately calls Aunt Bee. This daycare is
open to children aged six weeks to 12years old.

sne nas carefully selected tour employees whom she feels
share her thoughts on how to run Busy Bees.
Not leaving a single detail unattended, Crystal busily cleaned
up after lunch while telling me how much of herself is in Busy
Bees and how it's not just babysitting but teaching as well.
As education is important to Crystal she has decided to teach
the basics such as numbers, letters, shapes, and colors. She also
leaves time for reading, art, and pretending._

Lady 'Cats Bit By Injury Bug'


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After an opening win, the
Hardee Lady Wildcat hoop
team has hit "a hard spot."
Two of the three top scorers
in the opening were sidelined
early last week with knee
injuries. Tamara St. Fort and
Jakayshia Lindsey are both out
indefinitely following knee
injuries. Lindsey was injured
early in the Tuesday game at
Sebring, while St. Fort was
injured late in Wednesday's
practice.
' The girls had only one game
this holiday week, playing at
Avon Park on Monday. The
next game is this coming
Monday at DeSoto. The De-
cember schedule starts with
four consecutive home games,
next Thursday against Brad-
enton Southeast, then three the
following week, against Fort
Meade, Sebring and Lake
Wales. There is an away game -
and two more- home games
before the Christmas holiday
break.
The season resumes Jan. 6
and continues through the final
game at Lake Placid on Jan. 27.
District playoffs begin the
following week. Hardee is in
Class 5a, Region 3, District 10,
along with Auburndale, Lake
Wales and Lakeland Teneroc.


Sarasota Man
Dies In Crash
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 79-year-old man died fol-
lowing an accident on the west
side of Hardee County.
According to a Florida High-
way Patrol report, the accident
happened last Thursday at 3:39
p.m. on SR. 64, just west of
Roy Road.
Ralph Malcolm Campbell, of
Sarasota, was traveling east on
SR 64 just past the Manatee/-
Hardee County line, when he
exited the road for an unknown
reason. He went off the south
shoulder and collided with a
driveway culvert.
The 2010 Chevrolet HHR
went airborne, rotated and
struck the ground, rolling a
number of times before coming
to rest facing in a southerly
direction on its roof on the.
south side of SR 64.
Hardee County Fire-Rescue
responded and the driver was
pronounced dead at the scene.
His next of kin was notified. He
was wearing a seat belt and
alcohol was not involved.

Hardee opened its season
Nov. 14 well, winning 34-17
over Frostproof on the Hardee
court. It was 8-5 after the first
quarter, when Hardee pulled
steadily away for the rest of t he

points on the board. Allison
Smith added five, a deuce and
three-of-four foul shots. Steph-
anie Perez, Bailey Carlton,
Alyssa Casso and Allison
Allen-Hunter chipped in defen-
sively.
Against Sebring on the Blue
Streak court last Tuesday, it was
a more one-sided game. When
point guard Lindsey went down
with an injury, it disrupted the
Hardee offense. Casso picked
up some of the slack with her
eight points, St. Fort had six to
round out the scoring in the 44-
14 loss. April Wallace led
Sebring with 17 points.
The Hardee varsity hosted the
Walker Academy Eagles last
Thursday night. The Eagles are
a well-discipline team with a
blend of seventh to twelfth
graders. The five starters were

control of the game, while

sync. Walker won 46-18. Senior
Rachel Reid led the Eagles with


15 points.

with six points, Casso had four,

Martinez and Smith had four
apiece. Metayer had four steals
and three hustles and Tanksley
added three steals and a hustle.

split games last week. They
won 37-10 over Frostproof and
lost 26-26 to Sebring.
In the Frostproof game,
Kayshia Mosley led' with nine
points, Honesty Martinez had
eight and Diana Gomez and
Catherine "Cat" Jackson each
six. Alexi Santana and Audrea
Pace added four apiece.
Chipping in defensively were
Haylee Williams, Araceli
Ramos, Ana Lazo and Jasmine
Alamia.
At Sebring, Hardee played
hard in the loss. Mosley had
four points, Honesty Martinez
and Endreina Martinez each
had three points, Jackson two,
and Santana and Ramos each
sank a free throw. Jackson had
four rebounds and five steals,
while Gomez had five steals
and three rebounds. Santana

rebounds.

6B The Herald-Advocate, November 24, 2011
Soccer Teams Get Started NEW LOCATION

Soccer Teams Get Started r


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two teams, two very differ-
ent results.
The Hardee soccer teams
took the field last week, both
playing teams that were already
into their seasons.
They are off this week, but
have three matches next week.
All begin with girls games at 6
p.m. and the boys immediately
afterward, about 8 p.m. They
begin at Avon Park on Tuesday
and continue with home games
against DeSoto on Thursday
and at Sebring on Friday.
In last week's action, the girls
played Monday at Mulberry, a
team already at 5-1. They over-
powered Hardee for an 8-0 win
the Hardee's season opener.
The girls got on a scoring
streak in its second game of the
season. Although Lake Placid
came out on fire to take a 5-0
lead, the Lady Wildcats made a
three-goal comeback. There
was a score by soph Amalia
Shyann Rivera and senior
Maria Ancelmo, who got two
shots into the net, but one was


called back on a penalty. The
girls fought back hard, make
some adjustments and finished
strong.
Other players on the girls'
squad coached by Nicole
"Niki" Aubry are seniors
Sabrina Hernandez, Sasha
Castanon, Brenda Zamora,
Marisela Santiago and Monica
Soria; juniors Andrea Cast-
aneda and Alejandra Castaneda;
sophs Addison Aubry, Crystal
Huerta, Kayleen Prestridge,
Anna Galvez, Isabel Abel and
Sylvia Alvarez; and freshmen
Ruyra Olivarez, Guadalupe
Rosales, Diana Chavez, Eliza-
beth Alvarez and Marisela
Ramos.
The boys' start to the season
was different. Realizing Mul-
berry may have won its district
title for several years, Hardee
went right at it. Senior Leo
Deleora was the only score for
the Wildcats on a breakaway
interception, reported Coach
Dennis Aubry. "The defense
shut Mulberry down the second
half with no scores," added
Aubry.


In the Nov. 17 home game
against Lake Placid, "the boys
team was focused and played
strong for the full 80 minutes.
They scored first on a free kick
by junior Armando Alvarez in
the first three minutes.
The second score came on a
penalty kick in the 11th minutes
of the second t by junior
Oscar Palacios.
The defense, also known as
the "Steel Wall," stopped 26
attempts and sophomore goalie
Ruben Velasquez "had many
quality saves," reported Aubry.
Some of the players are still
on the football field. Others
already in action include sen-
iors Jose Lopez, Cody Lopez
and Braulio Duran; juniors
Miguel Garcia, Alexis Palacios
Enrique Zamora, Martin Lu-
catero, Mark Gomez, Daniel
Lopez and Brandon Vargas;'
sophs Ernesto Ramos, Gustavor
Toledo and Ezequiel Perez; and'
freshmen Manuel Palacios,
Roberto Zapote and Gilberto
Cardoza.

RECLAMATION PLAN IVIQINF QATIQN


The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its is-
suance of a conceptual reclamation plan modification (CFI-SP-CPD) (File No. 0151551-
018) to CF Industries, Inc. (CF), Post Office Box 1549, Wauchula, Florida 33873, under
Chapter 378, Part II, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter 62C-16, Florida Administrative
Code (F.A.C.). The conceptual reclamation plan modification is for CF's South Pasture
Mine, which is approximately 13 miles northwest of the City of Wauchula, approximately
0.5 of a mile south of State Road 62, and along the east and west sides of Fort Green-
Ona Road (County Road 663) in Sections 20-29 and 32-36, Township 33 South, Range
23 East; Sections 17, 18, and 20-36, Township 33 South, Range 24 East; and Sections 19
and 30, Township 33 South, Range 25 East. The primary drainage basins on the site are
Brushy Creek, Coons Bay Branch, Doe Branch, East Branch, Gum Swamp Branch, Hog
Branch, Horse Creek, Lettis Creek, Plunder Branch, Shirttail Branch, and. Troublesome
Creek (all Class III Waters). The project is located entirely within the Peace River Basin,
Class III Waters. The site has been mined by CF and is subject to mandatory phosphate
reclamation requirements under Chapter 378, F.S. and Chapter 62C-16, F.AC.
This conceptual reclamation plan modification addresses the following: changes
in the timing of activities, changes in the waste disposal plan, and changes to post-recla-
mation landforms.
The Department's file on this matter is available for public inspection during nor-
mal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays
at the Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining and Minerals Regulation,
2051 East Dirac Drive, Tallahassee, Florida 32310-3760, Telephone (850) 488-8217.
The conceptual reclamation plan modification is granted unless a sufficient peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is timely filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S.,
as provided below. ,.,
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's action may
petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57,
F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received
by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department, 3900 Commonwealth
Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Mediation is not available.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to redetermine final
agency action on the application, the filing of a petition for an administrative hearing raay
result in a modification of the agency action or even a denial of the application. If a suffi-
cient petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time to file a pe-
tition is timely filed, this agency action automatically becomes only proposed agency
action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Ac-
cordingly, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities in ac-
cordance with this conceptual reclamation plan modification until the deadlines noted
below for filing a petition for an administrative bearing, or request for an extension of time
has expired.
Under rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are af-
fected by the Department's action may also request an extension of time to file a petition
for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the re-
quest for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be filed with the Office
of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for
extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for filing a petition until the request
is acted upon.
If a timely and sufficient petition for an administrative hearing is filed, other persons
whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process
have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted only
at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule
28-106.205, F.A.C.
In accordance with subsection 378.212(3), F.S., petitions for an administrative
hearing by the applicant must be filed within 14 days of receipt of this written notice. Pe-
titions filed by any'persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written
notice under subsection 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the
notice or within 14 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under sub-
section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of
agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of
the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address in-
dicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition for an admin-
istrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency
affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during
the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial inter-
ests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c) a statement of when and how
the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) a statement of all disputed issues
of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) a concise statement
of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts that the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; (f) a statement of the spe-
cific rules or statutes that the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the
agency's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the
specific rules or statutes; and (g) a statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the
agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's ac-
tion is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under para-
graphs 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be dismissed
by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above requirements
or is untimely filed.
This conceptual reclamation plan modification constitutes an order of the Depart-
ment. Subject to the provisions of paragraph 120.68(7)(a), F.S., which may require a re-
mand for an administrative hearing, the applicant has the right to seek judicial review of
the order under section 120.68, F.S., by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office
of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable
filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed
within 30 days from the date when the order is filed with the Clerk of the Department.

But he didn't quit.
He said, "I eagerly expect and
hope that I will in no way be
ashamed, but will have sufficient
courage so that now as always
Christ will be exalted in my body,
Whether by life or by death. For to
me, to live is Christ and to die is
gain."


Be Thankful

Ail,


T hanksgiving is a time to reflect on
what God has given us. Blessings can be
evident in good times or be hidden in times of
trouble. Whatever our circumstances, let us thank
God for each day, for only with our Heavenly
Father is there true hope. "Have no anxiety
about anything, but in everything by prayer and
supplication with thanksgiving let our requests be
made know to God." (Philippians 4:6) May your
blessings abound this Thanksgiving.

Comcast Could Lose Wauchula Franchise


HARDEE WILDCA TS BOYS
BASKETBALL
2011-12


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Renewal of a licensing agree-
ment that has been for over five
years could mean termination
of its provision of service to
customers in Wauchula.
The issue hazarding Com-
cast's service to about 400 cus-
tomers in the Wauchula area is
use of city of Wauchula utility
poles.
The last formal agreement
between the city and Comcast
was in 1999. That agreement.
called for paying the city $5 for
each utility pole the cable
provider used for its equipment.
The five-year agreement was
due for renewal in 2006.
According to new city manager
Terry Atchley, the company has
repeatedly delayed response
since then. Although there was
a clause that allowed renewal
f6r another five years, that
passed without an agreement in
place.
Atchley told the Wauchula
City Commission at its Nov. 7


workshop of the difficulty in
getting in touch with the com-
pany, which has ignored his
memos and phone calls.
At the Nov. 14 meeting,
Atchley reported since the men-
tion of removing Comcast
equipment from city poles he
received a draft of an updated
agreement and has worked with
city attorney Cliff Ables in try-
ing to resolve it.
The newest draft calls for a
five-year agreement, with auto-
matic one-year renewals unless
either party wants to terminate
the agreement.
The new draft also calls for a
payment of $5.50 per pole for
any and all equipment with
increases starting Oct. 1, 2012,
and based on the national CPI
(Consumer Price Index). They
,say the customer base locally
does not justify a rate increase.
Atchley said in 2006 the city
asked for an increase to $15 per
pole. Since no agreement was
ever updated, the company has
continued to pay the 1999 rate


Hand, Foot and Mouth Disease


By BETSY NEGLEY
For The Herald-Advocate
Hand, foot and mouth disease
is a viral illness that generally
strikes children aged' 5 and
under, although adults have
been known to contract the ill-
ness. Symptoms include fever,
blister-like sores in the mouth
and a skin rash mainly on the
hands and feet.
The disease is caused by a
group of viruses but is most
commonly associated with
Coxsackievirus A16. While this
childhood illness is often asso-
ciated with hoof-and-mouth
disease that is found in animals,
. the two are not related and are
caused by different viruses.
The illness usually starts with
a fever, poor appetite, sore
throat and general unwell feel-
ing. Mouth sores usually devel-
op within two days of fever
onset and are often found at the
back of the mouth.
The skin rash starts to devel-
op around this same time with
red spots that sometimes form
blisters. While the skin rash is
generally found on the palms of


the hands and soles of the feet,
it also may appear on the knees,
elbows, buttocks and genital
areas. Dehydration may occur,
especially in small children,
because of the mouth sores.
The illness is spread from
person-to-person by direct con-
tact with the virus that causes it.
The viruses are found in nose
and throat secretions: saliva,
sputum or nasal mucus; blister
secretions and the stool of those
infected.
Sick children are most able to
infect someone else during the
first week of the illness but the
virus remains in the body foir
several weeks after they start to
feel better. This means that chil-
dren who seem well can still
infect those around them.
Some people can have the
disease but not have any symp-
toms but will still be shedding
the virus.
There is not a vaccine to pre-
vent this disease but people can
lower their risk of infection by:
Washing hands often with
soap and warm water, especial-
ly after changing diapers and


using the toilet.
Disinfecting dirty surfaces
and soiled items, including
toys. First wash the items with
soap and water; then disinfect
them with a solution of chlorine
bleach (mix 1 tablespoon of
bleach in 4 cups of water).
Avoid close contact such as
kissing, hugging or sharing eat-
ing utensils or cups with people
who have the disease.
There also.is. not a specific
treatment for Hand, Foot and
Mouth disease. Painful symp-
toms can be relieved by:
Taking over-the-counter
medications to relieve pain and
fever (Do NOT give ill children
aspirin!)
. Using mouthwashes or
sprays that numb mouth pain.
For more information on
Hand, Foot and Mouth disease,
visit the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention at
www.cdc.gov, contact your per-
sonal physician or the Hardee
County Health Department at
863-773-4161.

of $5 per pole, but has added
equipment to the poles.
The manager said Bartow has
4,800 Comcast customers, with
a city charge of $12 per pole.
Fort Meade has a similar cus-
tomer base and charge.
Commissioners asked to get
copies of the agreements of
Those nearby communities.
Commissioner Keith Nadaskay
commented, "Let's not get
greedy, let's get in line with the
others at $12 per pole.
From the audience, a lady
said Comcast has raised her
rates from $80 to $120 a month
and the company should pay
per pole increases. "We have
been out as much as four or five

Commissioner Ken Baker
suggested letting the company

The other commissioners
agreed when Commissioner
Russell Smith suggested the
matter be brought back to the

S-Museum Musings
By Sandy Scott
Sraci-er Trail Museum Cura1or

The C.A. Bryant Blacksmith Shop is a well known building
located at Pioneer Park next to Cracker Trail Museum. It was dis-
mantled from its location in Bowling Green, transported to Pioneer
Park and reassembled at its present location.
While perusing through the files of all donated items to the
museum, I recently came across a very small yellowed newspaper
item. It was a poem that had been sent to a publication, which with
further examination to the reverse side of the trimmed item,
appeared to be a larger newspaper, perhaps even the Tampa
Tribune.
The small item was titled "To The Old Black Kettle" and
immediately beneath it in capital letters was the words "BOWL-
ING GREEN", additionally confirming my assumption that it was
indeed an out of town newspaper.
This small cut out item had been buried along with some other
items in the file that pertained to the C.A. Bryant Blacksmith Shop.
While reading the words in the poem, one can immediately deter-
mine that it was penned during World War II since it mentions
"scrap metal" and a reference to the Japanese.
What was additionally intriguing to me was the choice of
words that was used by the author. It was even necessary for me to
rely ori a quick trip to Mr. Webster's dictionary to find to my sur-
prise the word "bairnes" meaning "children" and it was of Scottish
derivation.
Another unknown word used by the author was the word
"sage" which used in the poem meant "wise or showing wisdom",
again according to Mr. Webster.
The short poem not only carries history of the times that folks
lived during those earliei- years of Hardee County and Bowling
Green, but it shows some insight into the type of lady who wrot6
the poem.
While Mr. C.A. Bryant was busy with his services as local
blacksmith, his extremely creative wife found the time to share her
thoughts of a single item that her husband may very well had
forged. I found myself wishing I had known her.
The small printed item has now been recreated on a larger
paper and sits alongside a large black kettle that survived the scrap
metal pile and had been housed within the walls of the C.A. Bryant
Blacksmith Shop.
Cracker Trail Museum is proud to display this recently dis-
covered item as well as share the talents of Mrs. Bryant.
Perhaps buried in some -ofLyour files at home are items that
reflect a time that may bring a smile to your face as this yellowed
piece of paper did to mine. Won't you consider sharing your mem-
ories with us'? Contact us at 735-0119 and share your items with
us and visit us often.

Excuse me If I shed a tear

Before the "balrnes" began to roam.

While her bulging sides gleamed black in the light.

Who Do You Worship?

The proclamation is made in Revelation 14:7 to worship Him who made
heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water. Another proclamation
dealing with worship is found just two verses later where it is written that
anyone who worships the beast will receive wrath without mercy. In John
1:3,10 and Colossians 1:16, Jesus is clearly identified as the Maker of
heaven and earth, the sea and springs of water. But the question is often
asked... How do we know that we are truly worshiping Jesus Christ the
Creator of Heaven and Earth? It is written in Ezekiel 20:20 that it is by
keeping His Sabbaths holy that we know the true and living God. It has
always been His Creative power that distinguished Him from all other
gods. It is also by His Sabbath that we know that it is only "Him" that has
the power to save a sinner so it is also the sign of righteousness by faith
in Jesus Christ (Ezekiel 20:12). Back at the Creation of our world, Jesus
made something that was altogether different from everything else. He
made a perpetual appointment of "time" whereby each week everyone
could put away their ordinary secular occupations, activities, and
thoughts to spend a day hanging out with the Lord of the Universe
(Genesis 2:1-3; Isaiah 58:13). The particular Sabbath being brought to
view is the one that will remain "forever" (Isaiah 66:22,23), is the one that
was made at Creation "before" sin entered our world, and is the memo-
rial of Jesus at Creation. These Sabbaths occur every seventh day
(Saturday) from the beginning (Exodus 20:8-11). Some other days also
called Sabbaths but occurring yearly on different days of the week come
into existence "after" sin entered (Leviticus 23:37,38). These Sabbaths
pointed forward or "forshadowed" The coming Savior from sin. These
expired by limitation at the cross of Calvary. Back to Revelation 14:12 we
see two distinguishing marks of those that do "not" receive the plagues.
These signs, seals, marks, or traits are the "keeping" of the
Commandments of God and the faith of Jesus. Remember that the mark
of the beast, the name of the beast, and the number of his name
(Revelation 13:17) are all three different things but in the Bible, sign, seal,
and mark can be synonymous. Do people worship the devil without real-
izing it simply by "not" obeying or following what Jesus revealed in His
word? The master deceiver h sf tayAtbemped to deceive people into
legalistic measures- by following precoireZeived, presumtuous, man made
traditions rather than Jesus -revealed word by faith. Only eight people got
on the ark and was saved. Would you have got on too if you lived back
then? Most of the people that were lost in Noah's day were so because
getting on the boat was not the popular thing to do.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football fans, what a weekend we just had. The BCS
Title Game looked like a clear Oklahoma St. versus LSU until bed-
lam struck the gridiron. Five Top 10 teams go down to defeat
throwing the system into Y2K chaos. That is unless you are the
SEC and getting that National Championship Game between your
teams is very possible. The LSU-Alabama rematch is back on the
front burner. Stir in Arkansas though and dinner is not yet ready to
be served. Thanksgiving Week is going to be very interesting. The
Swami did predict Baylor over Oklahoma this past week but I'm
not taking any solace in the other picks after going only 12-8.
The Gators fell behind Furman 22-7 at one point. The score
came across the television and watchers could only sit with disbe-
lief on their faces. Eventually, the Gators did pull away to avoid the
embarrassment but it wasn't pretty. The Gator Bowl in Jacksonville
still wants the Gators despite the possibility of a 6-6 record. Filling
seats lakes priority.
Yes, Santa Claus, there is a Virginia and they knocked off the
Seminoles in Tallahassee. It was a first time ever but it came out of
nowhere. The '-Show Down in the Swamp" losses some of its lus-
ter in 2011 with underachieving teams meeting in the final game
next Saturday.
USF could not manage a touchdown against Miami but neither
could the Hurricanes. Who would have guessed a 6-3 game? The
Bulls need a win over Louisville to become bowl eligible this
week. Hope B.J. Daniels is back for USF to accomplish that next
Friday at noon. UCF.lost to East Carolina and is out of the bowl
picture. The projected USF-UCF game in the Beef 0' Brady's
Bowl is now gone.
In Alabama's win over Georgia Southern, Eziah Youyoute got
in the game with .44 seconds left. He did get in 3 plays for the
Eagles. It was great hearing the announcer say "now at QB a fresh-
man from Wauchula, Florida for Georgia Southern". Eziah then ran
a keeper for a 37-yard gain. Keep an eye on GSU in the Sub
Division playoffs. I'm thinking National Champions .
Now let's Look at this week's Bill O' Fare. ... .
1. FSU at Florida The bragging rights of the state for a year
are on the line. Will the Swamp be the difference in the game? Will

2. Boston College at Miami Hurricanes still plagued with
playing this insignificant school from New England. One fluke
pass in their history is all they have. The University of Miami has
announced they will not accept a bowl due to the NCAA investi-
gation. Miami 34 BC 10.
3. East Carolina at M.iihall Herd needs a win at home to
be bowl eligible. Vinny Curry leads aihuge defensive effort to make
it happen. Marshall 23 ECI) 20.
4. Pitt at West Virginia "The Backyard Brawl" in its last
game ? Conference realignment will eliminate this and other tradi-
tional rival games. Sad in a way. Mountaineers destroy the Panthers
in maybe the last ever game. WVU 45 Pitt 17.
5. Memphis at Southern Miss USM needs a win to make
the CUSA Title Game. They should have no trouble in this one.
Then again, they should not have against UAB either. College foot-
ball is very unpredictable. USM 46 Memphis 13.
6. Ole Miss at Mississippi St. Egg Bowl is a big deal in the
Magnolia State. Unless a miracle occurs, MSU should have brag-
ging rights for another year. MSU 27 Ole Miss 14.
7. Cincinnati at Syracuse Bearcats need to rebound if they
expect any piece of the Big East Title. Syracuse has lost 3 straight
but can still be bowl eligible with a win. Cincy 23 Syracuse 21.
8. Alabama at Auburn Tide will be in a fight, but should
have enough to make a run at the BCS Title Game. Rematch with
LSU anyone? Alabama 34 Auburn 20.
9. Arkansas at LSU 1 versus 3. Hogs get their chance to
make a statement. They have been the hottest team recently. This is
must watch TV. Arkansas 35 LSU: 33. ,
10. Georgia at Georgia Tech Dawgs better take care of the
ACC challenge before focusing on Atlanta. Mark has sure quieted


his critics since August. UGA 31 Georgia Tech 21.
11. Vanderbilt at Wake Forest Vanderbilt needs this win to
go bowling. The Commodores are very deserving after playing
well in 2011. Vanderbilt 38 Wake Forest 17.
12. Tennessee at Kentucky With a win over UK, Tennessee
becomes the 10th SEC team eligible to go to a bowl game. Many
didn't expect the Vols in post-season play. Tennessee 28 UK 16.
13. Virginia Tech at Virginia Vastly overrated Hokies go
down hard to rival UVA. If the Cavs can beat FSU at Doak, they
should beat VPI at home. UVA 34 VPI 27.
14. Ohio St. at Michigan Rich Rod is gone! Michigan will
win again. Michigan 38 OSU 20.
15. Houston at Tulsa Both teams are unbeaten in CUSA
play. Houston has not played Oklahoma, Oklahoma St. and Boise
St. Tulsa has. Can Case Keenum finish unbeaten? Mild upset here,
if it is an upset. Tulsa 49 Houston 42.
16. Texas at Texas A&M Another great rivalry coming to
an end with realignment. Thanksgiving will not be the same. Horns
Hook Em' in the finale. Texas 38 Texas A&M 33.
17. Iowa St. at Oklahoma Sooners come in mad, Cyclones
still partying. Sooners get back to basics. Iowa St. had its season.
Oklahoma 43 ISU 14.
18. Penn St. at Wisconsin Wisconsin has no problem run-
ning or passing over PSU. Too many distractions and Madison is a
place hard to, win. Wisconsin 33 Penn St. 19.
19. Oregon St. at Oregoin Ducks quack past Beavers.
Oregon 47 Oregon St. 13.
20. Clemson at South Carolina One of the day's best
games. Can Clemson rebound? Can Spurrier get number 10?
South Carolina 30 Clemson 28.
