State Questions IDA Practices


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County and the
Industrial Development Au-
thority have some questions to
answer regarding their account-
ing principles after receiving a
certified letter from the Joint
Legislative Auditing Commit-
tee of the Florida Legislature.
The committee wants to
know why the IDA has never


filed financial reports or con-
ducted an audit as required by
State Statutes, and, why it has
never had an approved budget
as required by state law.
The letter asks, "How is this
allowable and how can the
(IDA) legally expend funds
without an approved budget?"
Further the committee wants
to' know why money from the
development agreement


reached in 2008 between
Mosaic and Hardee County has
never been recorded in the
county's budgets and financial
statements.
It also questioned why the
IDA, which was created in 1984
and re-established in 1996, did
not file Articles of Incorpora-
tion with the state until March
of this year.
"Since the IDA failed to noti-


fy the (state) -of its existence, no
. tate agencies, including the
Auditor General and the
Department of Financial
Services, were aware it exist-
ed," the letter states.
SThe Joint Legislative Audit-
ing Committee sent the letter in
early November after receiving
information and documentation
from a concerned Hardee
County citizen.


The county and the IDA have
been given an extension until
Dec. 28 to submit the required
financial reports to the state.
The Department of Financial
Services requires a financial
audit report be submitted to the
Auditor General if the organiza-
tion meets the audit threshold.
Section 218.39 of the Florida
Statutes requires a dependent
special district, which the IDA


is; to have annual audits if its
revenue, or expenses are more
than $100,000 annually.
An audit became necessary
for the IDA after Hardee-
County deeded the Commerce
Park off State Road 62 to the
IDA for it to run and manage in
2006.
When the IDA began selling
lots in the park and receiving

By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate

Christmas occupy most every-
one's thoughts and time.
Now that December is. here

carols are making an appear-
ance, Hardee Countians are
ready to celebrate. The season's
excitement kicks off this week-

Peace River Refuge & Ranch is offering the public a rare opportunity to view big cats, monkeys and other exotic an-
imals as they tear into gift packages and stuffed stockings while the non-profit sanctuary in eastern Hardee County
celebrates "Christmas for the Animals."


Refuge Hosts Wild Christmas


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Everyone loves a chance to open presents on
Christmas morning.
Well, not only will people be ripping that wrapping
paper, but animals will be, too!
This year Peace River Refuge & Ranch in Zolfo
Springs will be hosting its 11th annual "Christmas for
the Animals," offering a rare opportunity for visitors to
view the sanctuary's residents in action.,
Animals will get a chance to open up special pres-
ents prepared by the non-profit facility's caretakers,
who make paper mache gifts and "prey animals" and fill
them with treats for the tigers, cougars, leopards, lynx


and other big cats, the bears, the wolves and the mon-
keys
Visitors are advised to bring a camera and capture
these unusual and exciting moments.
By donating $15 to the refuge, visitors can watch
the caretakers as they deliver the gifts to the animals for
them to "explore and destroy." All of the proceeds from
this annual event will benefit the rescued animals at the
sanctuary.
This is a great way for the whole family to get to
experience animals that they most likely will never
encounter elsewhere in this area. And it's all an up-close
view!

Play Opening


Friday Night


'By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
For those who -have missed
going to local theatre produc-
tions, the wait has ended.
The Hardee County Players
will be presenting the "drop-
Sdead funny" comedy "Dearly
Departed" over two weekends,
beginning this Friday night. The
Players' last stage performance,
of "The Boardinghouse," was
in March of 2010.
Cast member Tito Terrell
highly recommended this new
production after seeing it a few
times elsewhere. Director Bob
Klobuchar says it is a funny
script, mainly due to 'the
' "Redneck nature" of the charac-
ters. It also cleverly deals with


issues many people may have
experienced in their own lives.
The play is. set in the Baptist
backWoods of the Bible Belt.
The story line begins as patri-
arch Bud Turpin suddenly dies
at the breakfast table and con-
tinues through his funeral serv-
ice.
The Turpins go through the
grieving process, but with a
twist. Try as they might to pull
together on this somber occa-
sion, their other problems over-
shadow the death.
In the end, despite all the
bickering about marriages, ser-
mon preaching,. money matters
and headstone engraving, the
Turpins realize family is most

prised last Tuesday when they
were called to "The Wall."
Because "The Wall" is usual-
ly for students who misbehave,
the two seniors were a bit leery
of why they were there.
It was then that Program
Coordinator Irene Castanon
relieved their worries by giving
them the good news. They were
two of the 12 finalists across
Florida to be selected for the
prestigious Take Stock in
Children's Leaders 4 Life
Fellowship.
Kao Hlee Lor and Patience
Hall were delighted to hear the


Laptop.
Now the high school seniors
will submit'a video essay along
with the other finalists. The
video will be used to choose the
five students who will be
awarded the 2012 Leaders 4
Life Fellowship in December.
This fellowship is created in
partnership with the Asofsky
Family Foundation. It provides
students with leadership train-
ing and development as well as
providing financial resources,
services and support needed to
ensure success in college.

TIME FOR HAY


PHOTO BY JONATHAN KELLY
This pasture east of Zolfo Springs along Steve Roberts Special had recently been cut
for hay to help feed cattle through the winter. Winter frosts and freezes kill the tops of
pasture grass, and cattle then need supplemental feeding. Beef and dairy cattle are
important parts of Hardee County's economy, along with citrus, vegetable farming and
phosphate mining.i .

concentrating and allowing the
meal to digest, no matter how
long it takes. The older I get the
longer it takes my digestive sys-
tem to complete its work. My
philosophy is, don't, rush the
process.
I'm all for cooperation. I
believe this world would get
along much better if everybody
would just cooperate. I set the
example by cooperating with
my digestive system for the
entire day.
I have found the best way to
assist my digestive system is to
spend the day loafing. And I
have managed to bring loafing
to a finely developed art. It has
taken years for me to get to this
point of expertise. Throughout
the years, I have developed the
finesse associated with total
loafing that should be recorded
somewhere.
My expertise in this area is
most remarkable for the simple
fact that I only get to practice
this one day out of the year. I
can assure you that one day is
Intensely devoted to the strenu-
ous activity of loafing.
If you promise not to let this
get back to you know who, I do
get in an odd day every now
and again to practice for this
day. Nobody can reach the pin-
nacle of success I have on this
matter without some kind of
practice throughout the year. I

A friend of mine has a mar-
velous saying, "Either come
apart and rest a while, or you
will simply come apart." I like
that.
Jesus said something similar.
"Come unto me, all ye that
labour and are heavy laden, and
I will give you rest. Take my
yoke upon you, and learn of me;
for I am meek and lowly in
heart: and ye shall find rest unto
your souls. For my yoke is easy,
and my burden is light."
(Matthew 11:28-30 KJV.)
We have learned how to feast
and our buffet table is loaded
with goodies. Perhaps it would
be a good time to take some
time to rest and let our soul set-
tle and digest the rich blessings
of god.

Hunting At Airport?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Can someone hunt at the
Wauchula Municipal Airport?
SSomeone can, if that some-
one is airport manager Jim Hay,
who has a gun and night light
permit enabling him to control
nuisance animals for airplane
safety.
At a recent Wauchula City
Commission meeting, the ques-
tion of animal control vs. hunt-
ing on the airport.property was
raised.
Hay's permit, renewed Oct.
28, allows use of a gun and light
at night on airport property
under the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission's rules that "allow air-
ports to take wildlife that pose a
safety hazard to aircraft and
humans."
The list of destructive wild-
life includes armadillo, beaver
or nutria, bobcat, coyote, fox,
otter, rabbit, possum, raccoon,
sktink, wild hogs, pigeons and
iifi-niative' exotic H'aigiss'fi
hf deer'is permiitedi with a 20-
or 12-gauge shotgun up to #8
shot to scare them. Wildlife
which are killed may not be
used for personal use and'must
be incinerated or buried on site.
Gopher tortoises may not be
killed, but may be re-located
and their burrows destroyed.
Live captured bobcats must be
released on airport property or
offsite with landowner permis-
sion. Release sites for native
species must be at least 40 acres
in the same county.
Hay has a list of about 30
state-approved trappers to use
to remove deer, wild hogs and
other animals. The nearest are
in Wauchula and Bowling
Green. Some trappers will not
trap snakes and others will not
handle venomous snakes.
Hay said wild hogs and other
such wild animals root around
the light poles and fixtures and
cause damage, so need to be
killed or removed.
Commissioners hoped the
erection of the security fencing


required by the federal govern-*
ment. may have a side effect of
keeping some wildlife off the
airport property.
In other business in recent
meetings, the commission:
-approved use of city streets
for the Martin Luther King Jr.
parade on Jan. 16.
-approved first. reading of
the amended noise ordinance:
The two owners from A&A
Stereo Sound were concerned
about a possible' $500 fine
affecting people who purchase
stereo systems from them.
Police Chief Bill Beattie said
that's the maximum fine, but-
there would be a period of
warnings first. A first offender
would likely be fined less than a
repeat or persistent offender. He
suggested the owners advise
their customers of the parame-
ters, respect for others, the
hours of noise limits and noted
that it applied to use of any kind
of equipment making noise,
including T4wnmowers' and leaf

'One' resident said he agreed
with the ordinance because it's
so loud sometimes it makes his
windows shake. The ordinance
limits construction, car repair
and other such noise between 9
p.m. and 6 a.m. and/or which
can be heard within 100 feet by
a person of normal hearing,
such as a car stereo which can
be heard over traffic noise sev-.
eral cars away.
-approved an ordinance of
end-of-the-year budget adjust-
ments for the 2010-11 fiscal
year which ended Sept. 30.
-applauded efforts of police
officers first on the scene who
went into a building off South
10th Avenue and rescued a
woman. It took them three tries
to get to her and pull her out.
Unfortunately. she had other
health issues and succumbed
after several days.
Main Street Wauchula was
also applauded for its recogni-
tion as a Florida Main Street
community for November. It
has had over 15.000 volunteer


hours in the last year.
-sat as a Community.
Redevelopment Agency Board
and approved a commercial
grant application for Ullrich t
Storage Units and an irrevoca-
ble letter of credit for the EZ
Products renovation on West
Main Street.
A request for design assistant
bogged down in discussion of
the design assistance grant
application for another West i
Main Street business. It has
been closed for some time and
the inspector is requiring engi-
neering drawings of the build-
ing's structural stability before
allowing any renovation design
or rehabilitation be done.
Some commissioners felt
licensed engineering should be
part of the design process. and
others felt it wasn't a part of
design. After the description of
that grant application was
amended, the application was.,.
approved.
-discussed the possibility of
a trade of properties betweent'''
the city and the American
Legion. The city wanted to
refurbish the parking lot at the
intersection of Main Street and,
U.S. 17 ard learned that the
Legion owned it. The city owns
the property east of thb Legion
building and the proposal is for
a land swap.
The commission approved
appraisals of the properties and
continued negotiations with
John Burton and Lawrence
Roberts as representatives of
the legion. Commissioner Ken
Baker, a minister, abstained as
his church meets at the Legion
and is making an offer on the
property.
-approved appointment of
Kathleen Roehm, Louise Weis,
Oneita Revell and Elizabeth
Durrance of the Peace River
Explorations Board to meet
with city staff on rehabilitation
of the north end of the historic,
Wauchula Depot. The city will
received the EDA grant for the
renovations.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The airport will buy about 17
icres to its east to expand and
,ut up a security fence.
"'It was mandated following
)/11 for security. If we don't do
his. we cannot get FFA
Federal Aviation Administra-
ion) funding and cannot get our
license renewed." explained
Wauchula Airport Authority
chairmann Lavon Cobb.
In an early November work-
shop. members of the Wau-
:hula Airport Authority met
with the Wauchula City Com-
mission to continue planning
for the airport. Cobb introduced
Russ Holiday. an engineer with
AVCON. who made a presenta-
:ion on the airport expansion.
Other members of the
Authority present were Dale
Johnson, Colin Lambert. Bill
Mulcay and Bill Crews, along
with airport manager Jim Hay.
Members Bill Lambert and Joe
Smith were absent.
Holiday termed it "a great lit-
:le airport," and gave a brief re-
port of its history. The present
emphasis is on removing a pub-
lic safety hazard by increasing
:he protected air space. Acquir-
ing a 106-foot strip of land to
:he east will accomplish that
goal.
The strip, 17.2 acres, will be.
purchased from the owners of'
10 parcels to the east and they
will be provided an access just
:o the east of the security fenc-
ing. Projects related to this will
include storm ponds and
designing taxiway changes. -
A longer taxiway will allow
for construction of more T-
hangars, perhaps, some for
small corporate jets. Establish-
ng a 5,000-foot cross runway, a


lighted wind cone. external air-
side access road. master plan
update and perhaps an airport
industrial development plan
may be in the future.
Future plans have to include
anticipated revenue for each.
usually a combination of FFA
funding. along with the Florida
Department of Transportation
Airport funding and small
amounts from the city/airport
coffers. It's all part of the
national plan of integrated sys-
tems to ensure safe operations
of the nation's airports. Some of
these are just in the concept
stage. said Cobb.
He explained the fine line of
building too many hangars and
having some remain empty vs.
not having enough. For in-
stance, Sebring built 40 hangars
and only rented 10 in three
years.
Wauchula is in the unique
position of needing more, pri-
marily because people from the
west coast come to Wauchula
because of its ease in flying out,
rather than using a busy coastal
airport. The Hardee airport is
operating in the black and takes
care of itself. It is income pro-
ducing from the hangar rentals
to aviation fuel costs.
Commissioner Ken Baker
noted that Wauchula is known
because of its .low cost of fuel
and wondered if the airport had
enough tanks.
Hay said there is one 10,000-
gallon tank, and although at
times "we could use two tanks,
I don't think it's necessary
now."
Cobb also explained.that just
extending the present landing
strip from 4,000 to 5,000 feet
wouldn't work because of wet-

lands, leaving pilots without a
landing zone while work was
done on it and other complica-
tions. Also, having a 5,000-foot
cross runway would give pilots
the option for landing safely
depending on the wind direc-
tion, and provide landing for
corporate aircraft as well as
smaller craft.
He noted that Wauchula is the
closest airport to the proposed
Mosaic major development to
be called Streamsong. It is 18-
20 miles but is a direct route
down CR 663 to Vandolah to
the airport. Other airports, such
as Bartow or Lakeland, may be
closer but involve traffic con-
gestion.
Bill Crews recalled when the
land was purchased and airway
built for $8 million of mostly.
federal monies about 30 years
ago. Asked about the value
now, Crews said he didn't have
the current value, just from a
couple of years ago.
Cobb said FFA changes its
rules about every two years.
The emphasis now is on LED
lighting rather than incandes-
cent. It is more expensive ini-
tially but cheaper operationally
and gives more intense lighting.
Commissioner Russell Smith
asked about rental car options.
Hay said Enterprise comes
when needed but doesn't keep
an office or staff there.
When Commissioner Pattie
Detwiler noted she enjoyed
Bensern Days, Hay said it is
becoming a safety/security
problem with people going on
the runway or taxiways. He
related a recent incident of a
family who drove on to the run-
way and he had to get them to

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well. Football fans, what a weekend we just had again!
-Alabama looks to have solidified a spot in the BCS Title Game
against LSU. assuming LSU beats Georgia. A rematch would get a
lot of national attention: There is little doubt they are the two best
teams in college football.
The Gators gave up a total of 93 yards offense to FSU but lost
the game on poor quarterback play. They say statistics are for los-
ers but how can any team lose with such a dominating defensive
performance? At 6-6, Florida will be bowl bound but you have to
wonder if the fans want to extend this nightmare of a season. On
the other side of the coin, FSU made the plays as well and earned
the win.
One of the best games of the Thanksgiving Weekend was tel-
evised by CBS Sports but probably not seen by a large audience; it
was was Marshall and East Carolina. Both teams needed a win to
go bowling. It was senior night. The teams are historic but friend-
ly rivals. They did not disappoint. A see-saw battle went into over-
time as ECU scored to tie the game in the final minute. Marshall
then won in overtime 34-27 and looks to be coming to St.
Petersburg in the Beef O' Brad, owl. The game saw an amazing
one-handed acrobatic touchdc..,Ai catch by Marshall's Aaron
Dobson and ECU's Mike Barbour kick back-to-back field goals of
57 and 58 yards! It was one for the ages.
USF will host West Virginia this Thursday Night at Raymond
James Stadium. The Bulls need a win to go to a.bowl game proba-
bly Beef O' Bradys to face Marshall if they are successful. WVU
needs a win and a Cincinnati win to go the BCS Game for the Big
East. USF has been a nemesis for the Mountaineers since joining
the Big East. WVU has won only once in Tampa. ESPN will show
the game.
Now let's. Look at this week's Bill O' Fare ...
I. Connecticut at Cincinnati Bearcats senior day emotion
propels them to a share of the Big East title. Isiah Pead has a great
day running the ball. Cincinnati 31 UConn 23.
2. Northern Illinois at Ohio MAC Championship, Ohio
Bobcats take the MAC Title and head off to the Detroit Bowl Ohio
35 NIU 27.
3. Oregon vs. UCLA PAC 12 Championships. Ducks
quack over 6-win Bruins. Oregon 48 UCLA 16.
4. Syracuse at Pitt One of these teams gets win number 6
and goes to a bowl. Look for Syracuse to win this battle, in front of
a crowd of 2,000 in Pittsburgh. Syracuse 31 Pitt 17.
5. Texas at Baylor RG3 has a big senior night. Baylor 33
Texas 21.
6. Georgia vs. LSU SEC Championship LSU has too much
for the Dawgs. LSU 35 UGA 13.
7. Clemson vs. Virginia Tech ACC Championship Game -
Clemson beat VPI once and should do it again. Having the Hokies
ranked 5th is totally ridiculous. Other than Clemson, they have
played nobody. They should.not be ranked anywhere above 20th.
Clemson 30 VPI 17.
8. Michigan St. vs. Wisconsin Big 10 Championship
Game. Wisconsin makes it to the Rose Bowl with an easy win.
Wisconsin 38 Michigan St. 17.
9. Oklahoma at Oklahoma St. Cowboys hope to impress
enough to get back into the title picture but it won't be easy.
Oklahoma St. 38 Oklahoma 35.
10. Iowa St. at Kansas St. Wildcats get win number 10.
Kansas St. 41 Iowa St. 23.
11. New Mexico at Boise St. Bob Davie is coming out of
retirement to coach the Lobos next year. Boise in a rout. Boise St.
56 New Mexico 14.
12. UNLV at TCU Horn Frogs wrap up the Mountain West
Title. TCU 41 UNLV 13.
13. BYU at Hawaii Cougars end Hawaii's bowl hopes.
BYU 35 Hawaii 27.
. 14. West Virginia at USF WVU needs a strong defensive
stand like the Pitt game;lt finish with a shot at the BCS ganie.
WVU 38 USF'17. "
15. Army vs. Navy This game is Dec. 10th. Navy will
again reign supreme. Navy 34 Army 21.

SPOTLIGHT
,Our new Golf Chairman and
his wife, Don and Lyrin Bird,
come from Sayner. Wis., living
there for the past 22 years.
They have been married 30
years, and between them have
five boys, and seven grandchil-
dren. Don retired from the Iron
Workers Union after 35 years
and Lynn retired from owner-
ship of a bar after 15 years.
While living in Las Vegas for
fifteen years. Don's claim to
fame was working on the New
York Casino roller coaster.
welding the pipes seven days a
week for seven months. To
work on the top of the roller
coaster he had tb climb 249
steps up and then down every
day: only one round trip a day
was enough.
Anyone who knows them has
fun and find them very delight-
ful to get to know. I know I
have. They found our park
through the internet for a cen-
tral park location. Staying first
in Fort Meade for one month
then.came to our park. with all
the activities offered here. After
snow birding in Texas which
was too windy. Arizona too dry
and dusty. Alabama too chilly.
and all the traveling of 40
states, they decided they should
park themselves in one place
for a while.
We want to welcome them to
our park and congratulate him
for being the Golf Chairman. he
was so willing to give sugges-
tions at the banquet last season
and was given the position.


Live in terms of your strong points. Magnify them. Let
your weaknesses shrivel up and die from lack of nour-
ishment.

In Business
By Maria Trujillo


Real Taste of Mexico Now you can get a taste of what real
Mexican food really is!
A new Mexican restaurant, Taqueria Teocali, recently opened
in Zolfo Springs.
Owner Tita Calvillo de Sandoval is originally from Jalisco,
Mexico. The restaurant's name actually comes from the name of
her hometown. Calvillo has lived here for over ten years.
She decided to open her own restaurant because she has
always liked to cook.
Although never owning a restaurant before, Tita has experi-
ence in owning her own business.
While in Mexico, Tita owned a "tienda de abarrotes," or what
is known here as a small corner grocery store, and at night she
would make and sell food such as tacos and enchiladas.
She has also worked at other Mexican restaurants in the area
as a cook.
Taqueria Teocali has various types of food including tacos,
enchiladas, chicken, barbecue, fajitas, ceviche, shrimp cocktails,
and other typical Mexican food.
They also have a breakfast menu that includes eggs with pota-
toes, eggs with bacon, eggs with chorizo, and much more.
Additionally, the restaurant also offers takeout as an added bonus.
Soon Tita hopes to sell "aguas frescas" or fresh fruit drinks as
well as Mexican popsicles.
Taqueria Teocali is located on the corner of sixth Ave. and
Schoolhouse Road. It is open Monday through Sunday from 6 a.m.
to 6 p.m.

Back To Basics
By lan Rice
Gospel Preacher


I I
~'WHAT'DOES GOD REALLY WANT"
Imagine you are walking along the way and suddenly fall into
a puddle of muck. There you are, stained and yucky what a
mess. What if someone then came along and said they could clean
you right up? Wodld you take them up on that offer? I know I
would.
We have all 'fallen down" at some point in our lives: "For all
have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Yet,
everyone can be cleaned -up spiritually. The apostle Peter spoke
plainly of this when he wrote "There is also an antitype which now
saves us--baptism (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the
answer of a good conscience toward God), through the resurrection
of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at the right hand
of God, angels and authorities and powers having been made sub-
ject to Him." (1 Peter 3:21-22) Simply put, if the Lord sees you on
your back, wallowing in the mud, what's He going to tell you to
do? Get up out of the mud!! You must hear (Rom. 10:17), believe
(Heb. 11:6), repent (Acts 17:30), confess Jesus as the Christ (Matt.
10:33). be baptized and you will be cleansed spiritually (Acts
2:38, 22:16).
Now that's a big deal to us as sinners, but it's not the big deal
to God. Don't get me wrong- these elements are essential to salva-
tion (John 3:3-5, Mark 16:15-16). The big deal for God however, is
for us to commit our lives to Him. Once He cleanses us if we then
happen to stumble and get a little stained God can clean us up
again if we pray.(Acts 8:22)! But, what do you suppose God will
think if we get cleaned up only to continue jumping right back
into the mire? The Lord has indeed spoken of this, "For it would
have been better for them not to have known the way of righteous-
ness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment
delivered to them. But it has happened to them according to the
true proverb: "A dog returns to his own vomit," and, "a sow, hav-
ing washed, to her wallowing in the mire." (2 Peter 2:21-22)
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, Peter exhorts the Christian to be
reminded, "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood,'a
holy nation. His own special people, that you may proclaim the
praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous
light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God,
who had not obtained mercy but, now have .obtained mercy.
Beloved, I beg you as sojourners and pilgrims, abstain from flesh-
ly lusts which war against the soul ..." (1 Peter 2:9-11) Let us
remember what the Lord has done for us, and therefore live in such
a way as to glorify and honor Him. Read. Study. Obey God's Word.

We want to take this time to
be thankful and grateful and
wishing everyone a Happy
Thankgiving.
We are expecting 200- plus
for our Thanksgiving Feast. We
celebrate the meal a little differ-
ently. each group decides on a
table captain and each brings a
dish to pass to that table group
with the turkey. stuffing, gravy,
.rolls and butter all furnished by
Wilder Corporation and Wau-
chula State Bank. Eleven vol-
unteers cook the turkeys and
bring them sliced and make
gravy from the drippings. We
all eat together and no longer
have to wait in line like for a
potluck. We. also celebrate our
Christmas Dinner the same way
and it is truly the answer to a
different way to celebrate
together and enjoying all the
friends and neighbors in the
park.

proposed Waste Generated.
Products, Inc. Everyone needs
to go to the next County Com-

first hand what is being pro-
posed, and to offer suggestions
that the company be really
checked out. I think a visit to
the two plants that are in opera-

be beneficial. Of course, I sure
don't think the taxpayers can
afford to send the commission-
ers to London, England to view
that plant firsthand.
There were quite a few miss-

Sunday but this was probably
true everywhere.. Most of us,
and I am guilty, want to enjoy
that trip to the last possible

notice it more in a small church.

Wildcats Finish Season 9-3


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats' season
came to an end Friday night in a
27-9 loss to district foe Pal-
metto in the second round of the
Class 5-A state playoffs.
Hardee could not overcome
five turnovers in the game and
never really got its offense in
sync against a fast Tiger de-
fense.
Palmetto received to start the
game and was forced to punt af-
ter picking up two first downs.
The 'Cats started at their 7-
yard line and moved the ball out
to midfield before the drive
stalled and Hardee punted back
to Palmetto.
The Hardee defense held the
Tigers and forced another punt.
Hardee took over with good
field position at the Palmetto 41
after a bad kick.
The Wildcats went for it on
fourth-and-five but quarterback
SColby Baker, who was forced to
play both ways in the game,.
overthrew Ladarius Sampson

for an incompletion and turned
the ball over on downs.
A 5-yard run and two incom-
pletions by Palmetto gave the
ball back to the Wildcats at their
28. Senior Andrew Hooks
opened the drive with a 30-yard
run on a pitch around the left
end.
Baker was then intercepted
by De'Quan Reddick at the Pal-
metto 20 and he returned the
ball 15 yards to the 35-yard
line. The Tigers marched into
Hardee territory and settled for
a 38-yard field goal by Zane
Kitchell making it 3-0 with 5:23
left in the half.
Hardee took over at its 19-
yard line and, two plays later,
Sampson lost the ball on a carry
up the middle. Jamal Kearney
recovered for Palmetto at the
Hardee 38-yard line.
Four plays later, Trent Miller
found T.J. Mann open in the left
flat for an 18-yard touchdown.
The PAT was good and Hardee
trailed 10-0 with 2:43 left in the
half.
The Wildcat offense quickly
moved down the field, with
Baker finding tight end Justin
Knight open for a 22-yard gain
and then completions of 26 and
14 yards to Hooks set up a first-
and-goal from the 8.
After two incompletions
Hardee was forced to kick a 25-
yard field goal as time expired
for the half making it 10-3
heading to the locker room-


Hardee received to start the
second half and was forced to
punt without picking up a first
down. Palmetto could not move
the ball against the Cats'
defense and punted back to
Hardee.
Hardee took over at its 28-


yard line and soon faced a third-
and-four. Baker dropped back
to pass. The pass was deflected
and intercepted by Robert Jack-
son who returned it 6 yards to
midfield.
Palmetto got near the goal

Coach Don Trew and his cross country teams were all smiles at the district meet at Southeast in Bradenton earlier
this month.

Moralez Ends 14th At State


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Junior. Christian. Morajez
overcame odds to place 14th in
the state cross country run last
weekend.
Moralez was a mite late get-
ting to the starting line and
.ended up several rows back
when the starting gun went off.
Sandwiched in behind some of
the 187 runners on the line, it
took him some time to clear out
the wall of runners in front of
him.
Once the pack began the
uphill climb at the Little
Everglades course at Dade City,
Moralez was able to begin
working his way through the
mass of runners in his way,
described Cross Country Coach
Don Trew.
On the back stretch, Moralez
moved up to the 65th position


by the mile mark. As the group
of runners spread out even
more, the Wildcat was able to
move up to 47th by the 2-mile
mark.
He began his charge with a
mile to go. The fierce determi-
nation enabled him to pass four
of the seven runners who had
beaten him at regionals and a
lot of others. He finished 14th
overall, having moved up 33
spots in a little over the last
mile.
"His personal best (16:30)
would have put him in sixth
place, making me wonder what
might have happened had he
been to the line on time to hold
down a front spot. It was a thrill
for the Hardee fans in atten-
dance to see the courageous
charge and the ground make up,
a great testament to his will to
succeed," said Trew.


The strong effort by Moralez
earned him an automatic bid to
the AAU (American Athletic
Union) national championship
in the spring.
The coach expressed his
appreciation for the parents and
runners this year. He will have
most of them back in what
could be a strong team-then.
Although five of the runners
will graduate, a strong contin-
gent will return for the boys'
2012 squad. Led by Moralez,
that could include Adrian
Briones, Brandon Beatty, Alex
Pier-storff, Josh Wyatt, and JV
runners, Tyler Helms, Derick
Sambrano, Dorian Meija-
Flores, Leonel Rodriguez and
Adam Ramirez.
Girls expected back are Febe
Murillo, Allle Solis, Veronica
Rivera and Adriana Arroyo.

Cancer Patient
Needs Help
By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Billy Line, a resident of
Wauchula for 20 years, was a
seemingly healthy person, that
is, until he had to have quadru-
ple bypass surgery in June.
Now, after recovering from
that surgery, Billy is in another
battle, a battle with lung cancer.
This nightmare began one
night in September when Billy
started having chest pains.
SLeAnn, Billy's wife, took him
to the same hospital where he
had had his bypass surgery
done. He was admitted and
stayed in the Winter Haven hos-
pital for six days. While there, a
series of tests were done and
that's when they found the can-
cer.
. Now Billy is in Tampa so he
can get treatment at the Moffitt
Cancer Center. He goes through
radiation every day and chemo-
therapy on Mondays. LeAnn
says they will be in Tampa,
where they are staying at the
Hope Lodge, until after
Christmas.
"We are in dire need of help.
The trips to Moffitt Cancer
Center are expensive. Any
donations would help," says
LeAnn.
If you would like to help the
Line family in this time of need,
please send donations to LeAnn
Line at Seacoast National Bank
account number 4560035256.

With only a few exceptions,
true cacti are found exclu-
sively in the Western Hemi-
sphere.

Sees Named Business People. of Year


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Jim and Linda See were
named the Mosaic business per-
sons of the year at the Hardee
County Chamber of Commerce
annual dinner Saturday night.
The See family owns and
operates Jim See Realty, Inc.
and the Java Caf6.
Jim started the real estate
company in 1998 after being
partners with Joe L. Davis Inc.
for 20 years. Jim See Realty
covers citrus, acreage and
development properties as well


as managing more than 45
houses for Mosaic.
The company also markets
fruit on 15.000 acres in Martin
and St. Lucie counties for
Metropolitan Life Insurance
Co. and Riverland and Indian
Sun Groves, totaling four mil-
lion boxes of oranges annually.
The Java Caf6 building was
purchased by the See family in
2003 with plans to open the
restaurant as a nice "hobby" for
Linda.
After Hurricane Charley
delayed the opening for several


months in 2004. Java Cafe has
turned into a nice internet cafe
overlooking Heritage Park in
downtown Wauchula.
The restaurant specializes in
unique soups, salads. sandwich-
es and desserts. The Sees have
purposely limited their menu to'
ensure quality and freshness.
The mission for the restau-
rant was to provide residents a
great place to relax and enjoy a
quality meal without having to
leave the county.


Jim and Linda See were chosen as the 2011 business persons of the year by the
Chamber of Commerce. Pictured from left are Jim See, Keith Nedasky handing out the
award for Mosaic, Chamber Presidedit Derren Bryan and Linda See.


Happy Thanksgiving every
one along with greetings from
Fort Green!
.Sherman and Randy Davis
went fishing to Arbuckale last
Tuesday and had good luck.
They got twenty nice size specs
and one beautiful bass all fish-
ing with jigs. If I had gone. I
would not have caught any. as I
just can't hold my wrist right or-
something! I have never caught
a single fish when jigging.
Sylvia Hovind was telling me
her granddaughter. Taylor. went
fishing with them and they only
go at night. She said Taylor
caught the first fish on her little
pink "Dora" reel. She even vol-
unteered to get the minnows for
them when they caught one.
She will probably be a great
fisherman some day.
Rocky and Angie Sonnier are
enjoying company this week.
Rocky's Dad. Gary. is visiting
from Lake Charles. LA.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Elsie
Bargeron. Earl is recovering
from his foot surgery and 'was
unable to go and be with the
family but his brother Donald
made the trip to Georgia.
Our sincere sympathy is also
extended to the family of
Adrian Chapman.
Dan and Amy Duke have a
new bundle of joy, Trenton. He
made his appearance last week.
His big sister Abby was really
cute when she began telling
people about his expected
arrival. She made a "Knock,
knock, joke and the punch line
was "Imma who" and "Imma
going to be a big sister"! She
was real clever to think this up
herself.
Out in Fort Green, there is a
paved road. 0. Roberts Road. It
doesn't have a centerline except
over the bridge. Most drivers
know how to drive but there are
some who don't know it is com-
mon courtesy when a person is
walking on the road that they
should slow down and actually
get in the respective lane to be
driving. I try and walk most
mornings:and I get my dog and


myself onto the shoulder but
some cars fly by and in the-
wrong lane! I'm sure they are
not locals and just someone tak-
ing a short cut.
Our dirt road is a haven for
people to discard whatever they
don't want. A couple of weeks
ago on the way home from
church there was a dead deer,
all bloated up. By church time
that night. the buzzards had
devoured it! I didn't know how
discriminating buzzards were.
It took them over a week to fin-
ish off a hog. It seems people

Fish Busters
By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


BECOME FWC'S EYES AND EARS
TO PROTECT WILDLIFE
If you are like most Florida anglers and boaters, you enjoy
. your time on the water. It's an opportunity to get close to nature and
break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful chal-
lenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is
made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conser-
vation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for
everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sus-
tainable harvest.
So when you see someone threatening those resources by dam-
aging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more
than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish
you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options,
but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text mes-
sage to the Florida Fish and ' t!ife Conservation Commission
(FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text
Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply).
"The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the



H nigFs hinSFreas

public," said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWC's Division of
Law Enforcement. "We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even
more effective in catching poachers and other violators."
The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch
thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or
when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service
provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online
(MyFWC.com/WildlifeAlert).
The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has
been around for more than 30 years. When people's information
results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to
$1,000. Many conservation-minded people don't even claim the
reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a
life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influ-
ence, is reward enough.
But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell
phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation
* officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting
information via text message, it is important to include as much
information as possible, such as the specific violation and the loca-
tion. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via
text message to the reporting party to gather additional details.
Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, don't for-
get to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles,
license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an
officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may
remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or
email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A
confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a
reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained
dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven
days a week.

The real beauty of the program is that violators through
court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a vio-
lator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to
be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators
are paying people to turn them in.

ly assist the FWC.

From The Heart
By avid Kelly


REALLY?
4t seems the older I get the more.I feel like I have to ask this
question. REALLY?
Sometimes I look at our world and that is the only word I can
come up with to somehow begin to process the idiocy that sur-
rounds me.
I know it is not nice to call people idiots or dumb or stupid but
have you seen some of the things I've seen.
What. most certainly gets me the most fired up is when we
(okay I'll include myself, I do some pretty idiotic things some-
times, just ask my family.) make decisions that involve zero com-
mon sense. When we are totally legalistic and dead set on doing
something one way and one'way only. REALLY?
I could be very political but instead I think my point is much
broader and I would like to get to a core problem that we as
Americans are plagued with today. We have become giants in the
field of over reaction. How many codes, laws, rules, safety proce-
dures, etc. do we REALLY need? It REALLY does bother me.
REALLY!
From insurance, to education, to law enforcement, to the, work
place, to our judicial and political system, to planting or cutting
down a tree for goodness sake, you just about can't do anything
without getting a permit or license.or permission or you will be
liable and everything in the whole world becomes your fault
because you didn't follow the rules. REALLY? .-
I could give you a thousand examples of specific incidents or
acts or things but I don't want this/to narrow my train of thought.
This is what I'd REALLY like fot you to think about.
What if we did things differently? What if we did things for a
reason? What if we purposefully decided that we wanted to stop
suing each other over stupid stuff and start helping each other when
we screw up? What if we stopped condemning others and started
encouraging one another? What would happen if we REALL for-
gave people from the heart, not just the mouth? ,
Oh I know that is REALLY "idealistic". REALLY? /
Maybe we could even'talk to each other face to face when we
have problems with one another. Maybe we coujltieven tell each
other the truth, you know the stuff you say about Ieople when they
aren't around, the stuff that goes on inside your head that nobody
else hears, yeah all the mean' and bad stuff. What if you were flip-
ping honest with people? REALLY HONEST!
Maybe you can't tell but I've never REALIY been politically
correct. I think honesty is a whole lot nicer. Sometimes it hurts,
sometimes it should hurt because we' can learn important lessons
whenever we come face to face with the truth. For instance, we
aren't right, we are wrong, we don't have a right to do what we
think we have a right to do, We should admit that we don't have it
all figured out and just maybe this world isn't all about me. Maybe
then, just maybe then, our selfish desires and wants, and emotions
and actions will be seen by us for what they are, empty attempts at
self justification.
So here is your chance. Here is your opportunity. Stand up for
the truth. Not your ruth, or my truth or some wish washy version
of acceptance truth, but "THE TRUTH." Live your life based on
the freedom that"THE TRUTH" offers yougyou won't have to live
in fear, or want or what if's.
We are broken and need beggars. Sometimes we do whatev-
er it takes to disguise our brokenness. from others and often times
from ourselves. We know there is only one true God, yet we create
.so many other gods and serve them well. Let's be honest with one


another. His Kingdom is far better and greater and wider and
grander than any little kingdom we may have built here for our-
selves. Seek Ye first the Kingdom of God.
How do we find our way to God's Kingdom? John 14:6.
"Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No
one comes to the Father except through me."
Abide in Jesus. Proverbs 3:5.6 "Trust in the Lord with all your
heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways
acknowledge him and he will make straight your paths." REAL-
LY? REALLY!

PROPERTY TAX REFORM
"In this world nothing can be said to be certain; except death
and taxes." Benjamin Franklin was pretty much on target regarding
the certainty of taxes ... contributing to our government through the
payment of taxes cannot be avoided. But according to J.C. Watts,
Jr. "Death and taxes may be inevitable, but they shouldn't be relat-
ed". Tax bills, were sent out Nov. 1st and we're happy to.report that
we have heard of no connections between the two this year most
property owners should have been pleasantly surprised.by a'reduc-
tion in their tax bills.
For our local governments, ad valorem tax (tax according to
value) is one of the major revenue sources contributing to the pub-
lic services in our community. In order to collect these property
taxes; there.are three separate government entities that have a
unique and distinct,role in producing that "certain" tax bill that
each property owner receives in November.
First, the Property Appraiser annually appraises all property
within the county at market value as of January 1st in accordance
with Florida Law, After the values have been established, the tax-
ing authorities set their millage rate (tax rate) based on the amount
of tax dollars necessary to fund-their annual budgets.
S Following this process, in August of each year, a TRIM notice
(tax notice) is mailed to each property owner to provide notice of
the taxable value' and proposed taxes for the upcoming year. The
notice also includes Special Assessmept Fees that are not related to
the.property value, for services such as garbage collection and dis-
posal and fire services.
Following the establishment of the value and tax rates, our Tax
Collector Zee Smith calculates the amount of taxes due in prepara-
tion for sending out tax bills in November. She then begins collec-
tion of the taxes levied and remits those taxes back to the Taxing
Authorities. Tax bills paid prior to the month of March receive the
following discounts:
November 4%, December 3%, January 2%, February 1%
Any.questions pertaining to the payment of taxes can be
directed to the Tax Collector's Office.
If you did not receive a TRIM (Truth In Millage) notice in
August, it is very important that you contact our office to confirm
your correct mailing address. If.,wedo not have your correct mail-
ing address, then you will not receive a tax bill and unpaid taxes
will be subject to delinquency fees.
When you stop by the Tax Collector's Office to pay your taxes
... step across the hall to see u.- ... we're always anxious to assist
you with your property needs!

Wauchula Watch

This year many shoppers will be.put early to find those big
bargains on Black Friday, but the criminals will be out too.
In a small community most people can remember when you
could leave your car unlocked and it never be tampered with.
Unfortunately times are changing even in a small town. Theft of
personal property, often from unlocked cars, is the most common
crime. Too often individuals leave their cell phones, backpacks,
iPods, or computers where someone walking past can easily snatch
it and get away quickly. The good news is that these crimes can be
easily prevented. Just remember HIDE IT, LOCK IT OR LOSE
IT!
Safety at home and out in public begins with you. Criminals
take advantage of the holiday season to prey on those who are gen-
erous and unsuspecting, Here are some more great tips to help you
shop safely while getting those great holiday bargains throughout
the shopping season and once y"'- home.
1. Do not buy more than you can carry. Plan ahead by taking
a friend with you.
2. Save all receipts. Print and save all confirmations from
your online purchases. Start a file folder to keep all receipts togeth-
er and to help you verify credit card or bank statements as they
come in.
3. Consider alternate options to pay for your merchandise,
such as onetime or multiuse disposable credit cards or money
orders, at online stores.
4. Wait until asked before taking out your credit card or
checkbook. An enterprising thief would love to shoulder surf to get
your account information.
5. Deter pickpockets. Carry your purse close to your body or
your wallet inside a coat or front trouser pocket.
6. Have your keys in hand when approaching your vehicle.
Check the back seat and,around the car before getting in.
7. Do not leave:packages visible in your car windows. Lock
them in the trunk.
8. If you are shopping with children, make a plan in case you
get separated. Select a central meeting place and make sure they
know they can ask mall personnel or store security employees if
they need help.
9. Keep your garage doors closed and locked.
10. Always activate your alarm system when away from
home.
11. Lock all doors and windows when away from home.
12. Make-sure you have adequate lighting around your home.
Happy Thanksgiving from the Wauchula Police Department.
We. hope everyone has a happy and safe.holiday.
