A 29-year-old Frostproof
man was electrocuted when the
crane he was operating touched
a power line.
Kevin ,Hensley, an employee
of AT&T Mobility, was with
two co-workers deep within a
Hardee County grove when the

"He was killed instantly," the
major said.
The accident occurred at
about 10:07 a.m. last Thursday.
Hensley had not been breath-

An old entertaining Christ-

today is caroling.
For the third year, Paynes
Creek Historic State Park in
Bowling Green is hosting
"Christmas Caroling in the
Park."
The park will be filled with
the sounds of live music and
singing.
Carolers will include Mt.
Pisgah Baptist Church, Girl
Scouts, Randy Scott, and Jeff
Dorsey and friends.

ing violation in paying any ille-
gal charge."
Bradley said he has consult-
ed his attorney and feels that his
position is sound.
"I further feel strongly
enough about my position that I
will not change it outside of the
direction of the court," he said.
Bradley, said his primary
concern is "the people of the
county have the right to know
where their money is spent and
for years they have not -had
that."
S Lambert echoed the com-
ments about being transparent
to the citizens of the county and
is awaiting the audit being com-
pleted and moving forward.
He said the IDA is not in a
bind by having to wait on the
reimbursement grant and that
the IDA will wait until the audit
is finished and Bradley's con-
cerns are extinguished before
receiving the money.
'Lambert said the. unique
income streams provided by the
Mosaic agreement and: phos-
*phate severance taxes from'
mining provide the county with
more privilege and capabilities
than any other county around.

7 Kelly's Column
By Jim


Ernie Ziglar, 57, of the Torrey Hill community south of
Bowling Green on Saturday was elected,as the new chairman of the
Hardee County Democratic Executive Committee. He succeeds
Nancy Craft who had succeeded Jerald Carlton. '
Julie Ellis was named vice-chair at the meeting at the Hardee
Agri-Civic' Center. About 12 to 14 attended. The next meeting will
be at noon Jan. 14 at the Panda Restaurant.
Ziglar was born and raised in Bowling Green. He was in the
U.S. Army three years during the Vietnar era, stationed in Fort
Polk, La., where he was.a small arms specialist. He taught classes
on the use and care of M-16 rifles, machine guns and other small;
arms up to a 4.2-inch mortar.
He worked in the phosphate mining industry with Agrico for
17 years and was a welder and union steward.
He and his wife Norma then drove together in long-distance,
trucking for 14 years with the U.S. Xpress, driving new Volvo trac-
tors. They drove in 48 states and Canada and loved their trucking
job. He can be reached at 832-2198..
Ziglar said he planned for the Democratic Party to be more
active in the county and praised President Barack Obama for bring-
ing 40,000 American troops home from Iraq by year's end and for
the U.S. taking out Bin Laden, mastermind of the 9-11-01 airliner
terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.

Tim Tebow has guided the Denver Broncos to a 6-1 record
since being named the starting quarterback. He led the University
of Florida to two national titles and won. the Heisman Trophy.
I believe he would be a good ad spokesperson to represent the
Florida citrus industry. Some people feel he is too controversial for
such a role because of his outspoken Christian witness.
Former Bronco quarterback Jake Plummer recently said he
respects Tebow's play but added, "I think that when he accepts the
fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ, then I think I'll like
him a little better. I don't hate him because of that, I just would
rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap
or makes a good handoff."
Here is Tebow's response as reported by ESPN analyst Skip
Bayless:
"Well, first I'd say, thank you for the. compliment of calling me
a winner and then I'd also say if you're married and you're a (hus-
band) is it good enough to only say you love her on the day you get
married or should you tell her every single day when you wake up
and have an opportunity?
"And that's how I feel about my relationship with Jesus Christ.
It is the most important thing in my life so anytime I get an oppor-
tunity to tell him that I love Him or given an opportunity to shout
Him out on national TV, I'm gonna take that opportunity. So I look
at that as a relationship that I have-.with Him that I want to give
Him honor and glory anytime I have the opportunity and then right
after I give Him honor and glory, then I want to try and give my
teammates honor and glory and that's how it works because Christ
comes first in my life. Then my family, and then my teammates.
"So I respect Jake's opinion and I really appreciate his com-
pliment of calling me a winner but I feel like anytime I get the
opportunity to give the Lord some praise, He is due for it because
of what He did for me and what He did on the cross for all of us."
Tebow added his relationship with God not only influences his
play on the field but makes him who he is as a person:
"I wanted to be a great role model and be what Danny
Wuerffel was to me and I want to be someone who makes a differ-
ence. Because at.the end of the day if all we're doing is winning
and losing football games and scoriiig fouchdowiis, then we really
haven't done a lot.in, our lives.
h"But if we're in the business of'encouraging people, bring
faith, hope and love to those on their darkest hour of need as the
mission statement of my foundation reads, then we're really doing
something successful with our lives. Sq I'm going to take the plat-
form that football has given me and'try to give back. make a dif-
ference and make this world a better place."

One of the men with Hensley
described seeing a lot of smoke.
The co-worker attempted to
lower the craue arm. Dey said.
The man's.finger was burned in
the effort. Instead, he then
grabbed a piece of wood and
used it to push the levers con-
trolling the crane; lowering the
crane arm and stopping the flow
of electricity.


But it was too lute for
Hensley. who had taken a lethal
electric charge.
Hensley. who had been stand-
ing, fell to the ground, Dey said.
His co-workers checked him
and found he was not breathing.
They began cardiopulmonary
resuscitation, and did so for
about one minute before calling
the 911 emergency line.
Help arrived, but Hensley
already was deceased. Dey said.


"Happy as a clam" is from the expression "happy as a
clam at high tide." Clams are only harvested when the
tide is out.
There is magic in long-distance friendships. They let you
relate to other human beings in a way that goes beyond
being physically together and is often more profound.

Yet, vitfhout any proof, our offi-
cials are considering jumping

Personal experience in busi-

business decisions that can be
made is to start up underfunded.
This would be a number one
part. of'a professional business
planner. My understanding that
funding if approved by a bank
will be partially contingent on
the county signing as a partner.

Frank Kirkland
Fed Up American Cracker
Bowling Green


To my friends. John Roy Gough and Jim Kelly.
I have an intense private sector mentality. and for that I make
no apologies. Why is there always so much contentiousness to
move our County forward?
The challenge of "economic development stewardship," which
should be the issue at debate, isn't even a consideration. I make no
apologies for what the Economic Development Council. the
Industrial Development Authority or the Economic Development
Authority have initiated and/or accomplished, nor the manner in
which they hove operated.
I am angry and frustrated at the selfishness of multiple special
interests to disrespect and discredit the groups of citizens who are
quietly and deliberately working to both preserve and bolster our
Existence in this community. More disturbing for rne is the philo-
sophical difference the private sector has relative to stewardship of
Hardee County's unique economic development income streams
and those of traditional government.
These monies are not frivolous gifts provided by special inter-
ests to hold our politics in check. They are legitimate income
streams to build a "post-mining" economy before the post mining
syndrome hits. These monies are to diversify our economy. -They
are to bolster our ability to give children an opportunity to stay near
their homes after they graduate from high school. These monies
are not for government to manage, but rather for private sector
*entrepreneurial mentality with government oversight to invest
wisely, to expand the tax base and to inevitably create jobs for our
children.
Remember, in government the revenue is generally exactly
known, and an annual budget is produced, and it becomes the con-
trol mechanism for performance measures. Nothing can happen
contrary to the budget without an amendment, and an audit annu-
ally proclaims the abiding adherence to the budget plan. The result
is stewardship and is rewarded with re-election of elected officials.
Economic Development is unique in that it sits right between
government and the private sector as a catalyst. Our income
streams have created a set of circumstances related'to stewardship
and transparency that will have to be vetted frequently if we are to
succeed. The question arises, "What is success for Economic
Development in Hardee County?"
For these reasons, I proffer an analogy, full of symbolism,
vested in ponder to build us up, not tear us down.

Of Seed Corn and Bean Counting
It had been 10 years or so since there was an awakening in the
kingdom. But, alas, other manipulations continued upon the sub-
jects. ...
There had always been albean counter, appointed to count the
beans. Generally the bean counter was the best in all the land,
. counting over and over with piety and impunity, relentlessly, day
after day, year after year counting, categorizing, collating and
never conspiring and certainly not compromising. And the beans
were always all there, in the counting house, waiting for their turn
to be counted over and over, again and aga.in.
You see, as the story goes, the bean counter was afraid of an
earlier incident where three of the beans were found to be missing
one day, and it caused angst and trepidation in the bean counting
house. With missing beans nothing could be in order in the bean
counting house and, above all else, order in the'bean counting
house could never be restored. Then one day the missing beans
were found and calamity occurred at the bean counting house. A
local farmer had taken the beans and done the unthinkable...he had
planted them and that is where the controversy began and ended.
The nissin' heans had three different results. three different des-
tinies':
The first bean didn't sprout. It had simply been unable to
germinate because years and years of counting had worn its pro-
tective covering and it rotted, withered away and disappeared into.
the earth.
The second bean had a far different fate, for you see, it ger-
minated and began to grow and just as it was flowering to produce
beans it was consumed by a deer grazing in the forest, oblivious to
the.catastrophic conundrum unfolding.
The last bean, the most controversial of the three beasVTad,
in fact, germinated, sprouted and flourished into a productive
plant. Upon confiscation and return to the bean counting house, it

olson located him at about 5:20
p.m.
They had warrants for his
arrest on distribution of meth-
amphetamine and possession of
narcotics equipment charges.
They ordered him off his horse.
Carlton, however, refused to
dismount, and asked the detec-
tives what he did wrong.
They again asked him to step
off the horse to talk with them,
but he instead stiffened in the
saddle and claimed his foot was
stuck in the stirrup, sheriff's
spokesman Maj. Randy Dey
said.
Both officers expected the
suspect to go off galloping.
Nicholson had grabbed the
reins as they talked with
Carlton. Then Wright took hold
of Carlton's arm while Nich-
olson pushed his foot from the
stirrup.
Carlton was physically re-
moved from the saddle.
The suspect continued to
resist on the ground, Dey
alleged, and was wrestled onto
his stomach and handcuffed.
Carlton was booked in the
Hardee County Jail on charges
of manufacturing a hallucino-
gen, selling methamphetamine,
possessing methamphetamine,
possessing narcotics equipment
and resisting arrest without vio-
lence.
He is being held without
bond pending trial.


bers have been identified by
name and currently are the tar-
gets of a search.
They might have been found
that night, however, had the vic-
tim been more forthcoming in
his account of the crime, Dey

'"Obviously when we're, not;
told !the truth about something,.
it makes it very difficult for an
investigation," the major said.
"We wasted a lot of time."
Dey said officers at the scene
that night could have used valu-
able descriptions of the vehicle
and identifications of the sus-
pects to possibly close the case
with arrests that night.
The investigation remains
open.

was determined to have doubled the number of beans in the king-
dom, and the problem was overwhelming for the bean counter. The
bean counting house had to be redesigned with larger rooms and
more shelves and certainly more work, counting and counting and
counting the beans. Because of this it was determined that addi-
tional security would be placed on the bean counting house to pro-
tect the newly enlarged quantity of beans so that no more, never
again could a bean be allowed to germinate and flourish in the
kingdom. -.
The result, two beans lost or destroyed, one bean flourishing.
This could never be allowed to happen again. All beans were for
maintaining the status quo; none could be used to improve it.
But after a time, some of the subjects and some of the rulers
began to ponder the symbolism of the beans and realized they
were, in fact, "seed corn" for the next generation. Then one day in
an act of desperation the rulers created a different process, and
some of beans didn't go to the bean counter. This process called for
the beans to be invested with a different type of counting. They
would no longer be simply and only counted by the bean counter
... they were to be "held accountable" rather than to be "held and
counted" and the bean counter was outraged. And the subjects
were confused and all across the land cynicism and speculation
began to spread.regarding the future of "bean counting" and "bean
accountability".
The subjects were divided. Some believed the beans could
only be held objectively and counted and counted and counted
because that was the way and rule and the tradition, and besides
there was no money to build a larger bean counting house. Others
insisted the beans had to be utilized subjectively with accountabil-
ity, rather than simply "count" ability.
And the destiny of children in the kingdom was held, sus-
pended, hoping for a chance at prosperity while the stewardship
and control of the beans was debated ...

AIRPORT
Last week's article on
the airport has.been clari-
fied. When the airport
moved from the east of
Wauchula to its present
location, the cost was
about $1.2 million.
Originally to have cost the
county 50 percent, that
was changed to 95 per-
cent federal and state
monies and five percent
county, which was raised
through donations,
explains longtime Airport
Authority member Bill
Crews.
The airport includes five
40-acre tracts. The $8 mil-
lion mentioned is the pro-
posed cost of adding the
new 5,000 foot cross run-
vay. The present project,
. to extend air space and
build a security fence,
mandated by federal law in
order to keep the airport
viable.

Remembering Pearl Harbor


Yesterday,

December 7, 1941

a date which will live in infamy -
the United States of America was suddenly and
deliberately attacked by naval and air forces of
the Empire of Japan.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt

2,402 American Soldiers lost their lives
and 1,282 others were wounded on this one day
in 1941.
Now 70 years later there are only a little
over 2,500 Pearl Harbor Survivors still living.

Please take a moment to remember these
American Heroes and all the brave men and
women of World War II while we still can. These
men and women are a National Treasure, and
we want to thank them for their sacrifice to keep
us free.

This event, sponsored by

The Friday and Saturday

including a steer division.
The third annual show has
grown to one of the most highly
anticipated shows available in
the state. All of the top prizes are
sponsored and 100 percent of
entry fees collected will be paid
out to division and showman-
ship winners as prize money.
"The cooperative is thrilled to
host this event with the support
of many regional businesses,
and is very excited about the
showmanship competition. In
this show, participants are invit-
ed to help their younger brother
or sister exhibit their animal or
give their parents pointers in
adult showmanship," says Nell
McCauley, PRECO's chief mar-
keting and member services
officer.
She adds, "Every participant
in the show will receive a

WAUC

By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
The most powerful AM sta-
tion in south-central Florida has
just undergone some major pro-
gramming changes.
Radio station WAUC 1310
'AM has initiated its first big
change in 20 years. Instead of
its usual Spanish format, it has
switched to a focus on English
programming.
The local station will now
play classic country and blue-
grass. It will feature such estab-
lished artists as Johnny Cash,


Changes

David Allan Coe, Dolly Parton,
Leann Rimes and Hank
Williams Jr., but will also intro-
duce independent artists who
are trying to make it to
Nashville.
General Manager Glen
Zeigler hopes that by changing
the demographic of the station
he will gain more listeners.
Now he is seeking to appeal to
an audience of country and
bluegrass lovers, men and
women 25 years old and over.
Beto Ayala, the station
owner, agrees that this change


Week ending December 4,2011
Weather Summary: It was a dry week across Florida with
mild temperatures. Only four of the 36 Florida Automated Weather
Network (FAWN) stations reported more than a half inch of pre-
cipitation. The most rainfall was recorded at North Port with 0.91
inches. High temperatures were mostly in the 70s and low 80s.
Low temperatures were mostly in the mid 30s to mid 40s. Below
freezing temperatures were reported at Alachua, Carrabelle, Jay,
Live Oak, Marianna, Monticello, and Quincy. Topsoil moisture rat-
ings at week's end were 6 percent very short, 27 percent short, 65
percent adequate, and 2 percent surplus. Subsoil moisture ratings
were 4 percent very short, 28 percent short, 64 percent adequate,
and 4 percent surplus.

Field Crops: Clear weather allowed producers to progress
with field activities without interruption. The cotton 'and peanut
harvesting was virtually completed with only a few late-planted
fields remaining. Sugarcane harvesting progressed in the
Everglades region.

Fruit & Vegetables: Mostly clear weather allowed fieldwork
to progress on schedule. The vegetable harvest continued with a
wide variety of crops coming to market including specialty vegeta-
bles. The green bean harvest was in full swing in Miami-Dade
County. Producers were replanting okra as the earlier season har-
vesting of okra had virtually ended; Vegetables shipped included
snap beans," cucumbers, eggplant, bell peppers, radishes, squash,
and tomatoes. Light supplies of sweet corn, endive, and escarole,
were available.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture conditions
ranged from very poor to excellent and overall slightly lower than
the previous week. Drought and cold temperatures, limited winter
forage growth. Summer pasture was dormant. The cattle conditions
ranged from very poor to excellent, with 60 percent in good condi-
tion. In the Panhandle and northern areas, the pasture condition
ranged from very poor to excellent witi most in poor to fair condi-
tion. Drought limited forage growth and livestock were fed hay and
supplements. Pastures in Jefferson County improved after rainfall.
Cattle were in poor to excellent condition with most fair to good.
In Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, some herds had been
reduced due to a continuation of poor pasture and shortages of hay.
In the central areas, the pasture conditions ranged from very poor
to good with most in fair condition: Some frost lowered the pasture
condition. Some winter forage of ryegrass was being planted. The
conditions of the cattle ranged from very poor to excellent %with
most in good condition. Supplemental hay was fed. In the southern
areas, the pasture conditions ranged from poor to excellent with
most fair to good. The conditions of the cattle ranged from fair to
excellent with most in good condition.

Citrus: Highs this week remained in the mid-80s, while lows
dropped to the ipper 40s. All but two of the FAWN stations record-
ed some precipitation, but they all received less than an inch.
Growers continued to irrigate regularly to maintain groves and
good fruit condition. Early citrus harvest increased with specialty
citrus tangeloss and tangerines), grapefruit, and early oranges being
picked. Forty packinghouses and 15 processors have opened.

Tom McEwen Comes Home


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County native Tom
McEwen, who became a famous
sports editor at the Tampa
Tribune, was remembered Nov.
25 when his widow Linda
McEwen brought his ashes back
to Wauchula for a final resting
place.
His remains will be at
"Glenokra," a small private bur-
ial area next to Dr. Barbara
Carlton's home in the Oak
Grove community. He will be
next to his cousin Albert
Carlton, who was married to Dr.
Barbara and died April 24, 1992,
at age 64. McEwen died June 5,
2011, at age 88.
Catholic Monsignor
Lawrence Higgins, a prominent
retired pastor from Tampa and
close friend of McEwen, said he
met McEwen in 1958. Higgins
said McEwen was one of
Tampa's greatest leaders,
brought many people to Tampa,
and sent hin to visit people in
area hospitals.
"Tom was one of the three top
sports writers in America," said
the priest.
"Tom kept going to the end
despite 10 years of health prob-
lems. Fare thee well until we
meet again."
McEwen was famous for his
"Morning After" and "Hey
Tom" sports colums. He helped
bring pro football, hockey and
baseball teams to the Tampa.
Bay area, including NFL Super
Bowls.
Linda McEwen said her hus-
band often gave credit in his,
colums to Hardee County and
was earlier known as "Little


Mack."
Edgar Davis of Wauchula
grew up near McEwen and 5aid
he always read McEwnn's
Column first when he opened
the Tribune. In a pickup softball
game in Wauchula when a cro-
quet ball was used, Davis was
hit in the head by a fly ball. "I
was always interested in
sports."
Tom' McEwen and Albert
Carlton had the same great-
grandmother, Martha McEwen,
said Dr. Barbara.
After the ceremony guests
and family members ate a wild.
game lunch at the Carlton
home. The menu included
quail, turkey and venison.
Linda McEwen read the fol-
lowing tribute to her husband:
"This is Tom's final journey,
back to his hometown that has
ment so much to him and to
which he gave full credit for his
life achievements. To the peo-
ple and relatives of Wauchula,
our family offers you our
thanks indeed for many years
we have enjoyed the hospitality,
the warmth of friendship you
have displayed to us.
"I can't say that I have
enjoyed anything about this
death of Tom. He was so dear to
me and my children and to Dr.
Barbara and her children, and to
Albert when he was alive. We
hope Tom is enjoying the
rewards of heaven. He worked
so hard for his readers, who
were so inspired by his beauti-
ful writing.
"There will never be another
S'Little Mac' as he was known to
you. Thank you all for coming
today."

.

Tom McEwen graduated from Wauchula High School and
University of Florida, was Tampa Tribune sports editor for
30 years until 1992, and wrote over 10,000 colums.

Alligator

Hunt Hours

Longer?
The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
directed staff to advertise a rule
amendment to extend alligator
hunting hours. Commissioners
will vote on it at their June
meeting:
The FWC gave preliminary
approval for an additional four
hours of daylight hunting to the
state's recreational alligator
hunting season, which runs
Aug. 15 to Nov. 1 each year.
Currently, the rule.primarily
allows for only nighttime-hunt-
ing of alligators, between one
hour before sunset and one hour.
After sunrise. The change would
extend alligator hunting hours,
establishing the -legal hours
from 5 p.m. until 10 a.m. during
the annual 11-week season.
In developing the recommen-.
Sdation. FWC staff weighed bio-
logical considerations, people's
desire for additional daylight
opportunities to hunt alligators.
the concerns expressed about
potential conflicts between alli-
gator hunters and other users of
lakes and rivers, and the unique
and diverse views citizens have
about alligators and their man-
aagement in Florida.


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Seeing children without
proper clothing to keep them
warm'in winter tends to tug at a
person's heartstrings.
But not many people do
something about it.
Amanda Sanchez is the type
of person to do something about
it. Sanchez feels that God has
put it in her heart to help those
needy children.
"It breaks my heart when I
see kids without the proper
clothing when it's cold," she
says.
That's why Sanchez has
teamed up with the Hardee
Help Center and the' First
Baptist Church of Wauchula to-
start doing something about an
issue she feels she can relate to.
She has started Coats for Kids.


Coats for Kids is exactly
what it sounds like, getting
jackets and coats for those kids
who need them. Donations can
be new or old, but must be in
good condition.
Sanchez says that so far the
collecting is going great thanks
to Lydia's House, which has
already donated several coats to
help her get started.
If you would like to add a lit-
tle warmth to a child's life this
year, you can drop off jackets,
sweaters or coats in kid sizes,
whether new or old, at
Wauchula Elementary School,
North Wauchula Elementary
School or First Baptist Church
of Wauchula.
Please do so before Christ-
mas, so they can be distributed
to needy children.

faster than when they are formed.

A: No, I did not go to school. I had
to help at home, growing vegetables
and taking care of our cattle.
Q: How much money did you get
paid for working?
A: I started working very young, in
the year 1934. I would work a whole
day and only get paid 20 cents.
Q: What type of music did you lis-
ten to?
A: We had no radio or big bands; all
we used were violins and arches. The
players would make beautiful music
and people would start dancing.
Q: Back then, what would you do
to have food?
A: When I was small we had to
grow everything, like tomatoes, onions
and corn, but now all I have to do is go
to the grocery store and buy food.
Q: Where did meet your wife?
A: We lived in the same place and
met as kids.


Q: Describe the place you lived at?
A: My house was small. It had a
wood and grass roof. It had one room
and a kitchen. We had a small yard
where we had a garden. We lived by a
river. The closest city was three hours
away on foot.
Q: How was a typical day for you?
A: I would wake up, had to think
what's for breakfast. I would take care
of animals.
Q: How do you feel about life?
A: I feel good but I.feel like work-
ing, but due to my age and health I
can't. But I enjoy living life.

Rodeo Bits

TRIBUTE TO A COWBOY'S MUSTACHE
The cowgirls and cowboys who compete in the various youth
rodeos .take their participation very seriously, but they also love to
have fun while competing. In one of the Reality Ranch youth
rodeos earlier this year, several of the boys decided to poke fun at
the newly-grown facial hair on dad Luke Cantu.
Luke had grown a fu-manchu mustache. Sometime during the
barrel racing (a predominantly cowgirl event), a group of the boys

(including Luke's son, Dawson) came up with the idea of painting
Snatching mustaches on their faces. To the rescue came Loni
Damboise with her eyeliner pen, and the face-painting began!
None of the adults knew of the boys' joke, so laughter rippled
through the spectator crowd during the roping and goat-tying
events as each of the five boys came out sporting a black fu-
manchu mustache!
Photographing these events makes for a long (and often hot)
day for me, as I have to catch every competitor, whereas they and
their parents get to relax in between events. It is hard work, but
when I get to witness the goodness and humor that these kids bring
to the arena, it makes the day all worthwhile.
Corey Fussell also poked a little fun at Luke's mustache in the
'Arcadia Youth Rodeo Association finals last May. Luke was help-
ing with pickup duties, and was the first to reach Corey at the con-
clusion of his saddle-bronc ride. Corey ended up sitting on Luke's
lap, and their cowboy hats went brim-to-brim as they looked at

'By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In consecutive meetings, the
Hardee County Commission
changed twice.
At its Nov. 10 meeting, the
commission chose to keep
interim chairman Minor Bryant
as its chairman for the 2011-12
fiscal year. It also reviewed
committee appointments, espe-
cially those for the District 3
commissioner.
Since that seat was vacated
by the resignation of Terry
Atchley, the commission decid-
ed to appoint member Grady
Johnson as- liaison to the
Industrial Development Au-
thority and Transportation Dis-
advantaged Board and leave the
other District.3 assignments to
await a new commission.
It wasn't a long wait, as Gov.
Rick Scott appointed Rick
Knight to the position. At its
Dec. 1 meeting, Circuit Judge
Maicus Ezelle administered the
oath of office to Knight, who
then took his seat on the com-
mission and assumed the Dis-
trict 3.assignments.
As it stands now, District 1's
Bryant is local transportation
liaison, legislative liaison, vice
chairman of the Central Florida
Regional Planning Council, on
the "Small County Coalition,
representative to Southwest
Florida Water Management
District and the Heartland
Water Alliance Board.
District 2 Commissioner Sue
Birge is the commission tnem-
ber of the Economic Develop-
ment- Council, and represents
the commission as the budget
and finance liaison, on the
Health Care Task Force, the
Rural Health Network, Com-
munity. Recreation Complex,
Housing Authority, HomelesI
Coalition and Crimestoppers.
District ,4 Commissioner
Grady Johnson 'is the Mining
and Agriculture liaison, on the
Community Traffic Safety
Team, -Airport Task Force,
Heart of Florida Communitm
Alliance and alternate to
SWFWMD as well as the recent
additions, which may return to
: : .District 3 5 Commissi r De
District 5 Commissioner Dale


Johnson is the Public Safety
and Municipal Liaison, repre-
sentative to the Heartland
Workforce Investment Board,
Florida Heartland Rural Ec-
onomic Development Initiative
(FHREDI), Drug Abuse Pre-
vention, Teen Pregnancy Pre-
vention and Tampa Bay Part-
nership.
New District 3 Commissioner
Knight will be alternate on the
Small County Coalition, Tampa
Bay Partnership, Central
Florida Regional Planning
Council and Airport Task Force,
and representative on the
Transportation Disadvantaged
committee, Library Heartland
Cooperative 'and Industrial
Development Council liaison.
In other action in its recent
meetings, the commission:
--allotted $78,250 for re-
wiring and bathrooms at Rest-
haven. Although he did not
have to because it brings no
money to him, Commissioner
Dale Johnson abstained from
voting as his mother is a
Resthaven resident.
The wiring on the old Lemon
Grove Schoolhouse has break-
ing due to insulation sloughing
off. The county will hire part-
time electricians for the work,
and include rewiring of the
building and 'a new service
panel with a transfer switch
connected to the. generator to
eliminate down time during
storms.
-heard commerits from
Henry Kuhlman and Frank
Kirkland in opposition to the
Waste Generated Products pro-
posed plant.
-approved a' proclamation
of November as National Hos-
pice and Palliative Care Month
Becky McIntyre of Good
Shepherd Hospice introduced
,local' volunteers Debbie
Wheeler, Grace Dubois, Justin
Worden, Brenda Cullins and
Susan Dick.
-approved a letter of com-
rnitient to be pait of the
Heartland Brownfields Revita-
lizatidi Partnership Coalition in
its application of a three-year
$1 million giant to identify
environmentalI- 'mipacted by
conrminalnon b) oil or fuel


products (old gas stations.
tanks. etc.) which is holding
back development of the.prop-
erties.
-approved an interlocal
agreement with Polk County for
loan of an emergency response ,
vehicle for up to 60 days while
the county's is being repaired
from an Oct. 19 accident in
which the ambulance struck a
vehicle while crossing U.S. 17
in Bowling Green.
--approved write-off of
$247,240.51 in outstanding
EMS bills from 2008-09 on 812
accounts. Medicare, Medicaid
and insurance' has paid its
amounts and the amount
remaining is mainly self-pay.
Fire-Rescue Chief Mike Choate
said some people are faithful in
trying to pay their bills, even
bringing in $5 a month, which h
I'm sure they can't afford,"
while others do, nothing to pay
their bills. "We will continue to
pursue these bills, but it's hard
to be too aggressive 'in these
economic times," said Choate ,
who noted some is from winter
visitors or others passing
through the county.
"Perhaps, we need to get
more aggressive. This comes
oh the taxpayers. If I owe a bill,
Ilexpect to pay it. Life is not
free. We need to be more ag-
gressive but not so much people
are afraid to call for an ambu-
lance 'when they need, one"
commented Bryant.
Choate said the county's 60 '
percent was. lower than the 67
percent of Highlands County
which has extra staff to confirm
local residences through the :
Property Appraiser's Office and
other-sources.
-appointed Kathy Gregg to
the Library Board, to replace
Gloria Davis, who had re-
signed.
-decided to seek applicants
for the Planning and Zoning
Board %acancy when 'Anita
Keene resigned.
-learned that the Rotary
Club had donated dictionaries
for every, fifth grader to have
one. Sheriff Arnold Lanier said
he delivered, 420 of them the
previoiis week -., ".

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER
V, A -


Children enjoy coming to our
Garens to play "boats."
Their "boats" are little branches
of trees which they p-lic in the
water of the streams. They run
along beside them and follow them
as they go downstream.
When the water runs rapidly, the
"boats" move rapidly. The little
'boats" are carried along, under the
control and direction of the water.
What's true of those boats is
true of the believers who wrote the
Bible. They were carried along,
under the control and direction of
the Holy Spirit.
The Bible says, 'Men spoke
.frnm God as they were carried
along by the Holy Spirit."
That's inspiration!

climbing a mountain takes skill,
physical fitness, and determination. Harsh
.weather, lack of oxygen, and exhaustion may face
the climber who dares to face the silent majesty of
extreme heights. Like a mountain climb, a journey
in faith has its struggles; God's ways are not always
easy to comprehend. Obstacles thrown in our path
may make us falter and fail, but He gives us new
strength with every new difficulty Seek His strength
and refuge at your hduse of worship this week.

Hardee Outlasts


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Exhaustion nearly set in, but
the resilient Hardee varsity bas-
ketball team snatched a victory
from the Sebring Blue Streaks
last Tuesday night.
It .was Hardee's first game
and the fourth for Sebring,
which came in 1-2 under 17-
year coach Prince Harris.
It was a probable close game
also when Hardee ventured to
Sebring for a rematch. The
'Cats also have a game tonight
(Thursday) at Lakeland and
tomorrow at Port Charlotte.
There's a break before a
game at Avon Park on Dec. 20
and a visit from Bartow Dec.
22. Hardee will participate in
the First Academy Tournament
in Orlando Dec. 27-29 and the
Kathleen Shootout on Jan. 6-7
before getting back to the regu-
lar schedule.
Last week's home game
against Sebring was enlivened
by the two dozen "Blue Birds,"
blue-chested Wildcats, mostly
football players, gathered to
root for the home team.
Sebring featured three seniors
and two juniors in the starting
lineup, with another four sen-
iors, two juniors and a pair of
sophs waiting in the wings.

As history has repeatedly
shown us, this does not work.
Every society that has tried this
has collapsed. A prime example
is the Soviet Union. If socialism
were a better system, we would
all be speaking Russian.
Previously democratic civi-
lizations and nations that have
tried this have collapsed into
dictatorship. Some noteworthy
examples are the Greeks, the
Romans, and the post-World
War I Weimar Republic of
Germany, the latter printing so
much money that its currency
became virtually worthless,
bankrupting the country, and
resulting in the establishment of
Hitler's Nazi (National Socia-
ist) party dictatorship that
brought on the horrors of World
War II.
It is time to rid ourselves of
such history-ignoring, out-of-
touch-with-reality, power-mad
politicians, ousting them from
power, and never let them in
office again.

Letter To The Editor

Europe, America Both

Have Big Debt Problem


Dear Editor:
Europe and the USA have
many things in common, one of
which noted currently is the
massive debt crisis both are
experiencing because of politi-
cians who fail to learn from his-
tory.
George Santayana noted that
those who fail to learn from the
mistakes of the past are doomed
to repeat them. In both Europe.
and the United States, power-
hungry politicians have been
trying to buy votes with money
we don't have, taxing not only
this generation but every gener-
ation in the future, guaranteeing
a lower standard of living for
our children, grandchildren, and
great-grandchildren.
These short-sighted politicos,
thinking only of the present,
seem to think they can go on
forever, steadily increasing the
public debt, by just printing
more and more money without
an equal increase in goods and
,services, hoping to find some-
one to buy our consequently
less and less valuable bonds.,

The orange picking season
is beginning in Hardee
County. These two pictures
were taken Nov. 24 along

Hamlins are the primary
early orange crop, followed
several months later by
valencia oranges. The Flor-
ida orange crop is estimat-
ed at 147 million boxes this
coming season. Hardee
produces over 12 million
boxes of oranges annually
and ranks about No: 5 in the
state in production.

School second graders know
how to have fun with read-
ing. They spent the month of
October earning a minimum
of eight Accelerated Reader
points, with most books pro-
viding 0.5 to 1.0 points each.
Students who reached the
goal were awarded with
November's fun activity, a
pie-eating contest. About 60
second graders competed in
the contest. The students
had to eat pies made of pud-
ding, Cool Whip, and
crushed Oreos to win a
prize. And though they are
hands-on readers, it was
hands off at pie time!

student ambassadors at the Miami Dolphins' first home game of the season on Sept.

Up program at their schools. The ambassadors are sixth-grader Kenna Rudominer of
Broward County, seventh-grader Matthew McMillan of Palm Beach County and ninth-
grader Silvana'Naccarato of Dade County. The program, begun by the National Dairy
Council, empowers students to take action and spread the word to their peers about
the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Moore (far right in middle row, wearing sunglass-
es) is show here with (up front, from left) Kenna, Matthew and Silvana and their fam-
ily members and friends at the game.

Ballard Book Signing Next Week


DOCTOR HONORED


Hardee County native Chip
Ballard's latest book. "Literary
Escapades," was released by
RoseHeart Publishing in Oc-
tober of this year.
Ballard will be selling and
signing copies of it as well as his
two previous books, "Peace
River" and "The Snapshot &
Other Stories: Tales From
Flowing Wells," beginning at 6
p.m. on Friday, Dec. 16, at Cat's
On Main in the Town Center
shopping plaza in Wauchula.
"Literary Escapades" is a
selection of 65 newspaper and
magazine columns, most of
which are set in and around
Hardee County, and 16 photos.
It contains material that is his-
torical, educational and, above
all, entertaining for the entire
family.
Ballard's first book was
"Peace River," a murder mys-
tery set in the fictional 'Pine-
wood County. Locals will rec-
ognize its similarities to Hardee
County. His second book, "The
Snapshot & Other Stories: Tales
from Flowing Wells," mirrors
his actual home, Zolfo Springs.
It is a collection of short stories.
Ballard's three books also are
available at most major book-
stores and online at Ama-

.


zon.com.
Journalist and Christian nov-
elist George L. Duncan said of
Ballard's -latest tome: "There
are any number of good things
that can be said about 'Literary
Escapades,' the book of col-
umns by teacher/writer Chip
Ballard, the question is where to
begin. One critic said about
John D. MacDonald's books.
that historians should read them
because they describe Florida.
The same historians should also
pick up Mr. Ballard's book.This
is the essence of rural Florida,
especially Hardee County,
which is Mr. Ballard's resi-
dence. He tells of all the mar-
vels, the wonders, the oddities
of the place and it makes inter-
esting reading.
"But it is not just the past that
Mr. Ballard writes about,"
Duncan continued. "He writes
about life and humanity in gen-
eral. Unlike most pundits, he
did not spend his career behind
a desk. He was a teacher and, I
believe, spent many years han-
dling the class where all the
questionable kids were sent. It
Was their last stop before expul-
sion. Mr. Ballard has seen and
experienced a lot, and many.of
those experiences are beautiful-

ly recreated in this book."
Author and professor Rick
Wilber has said of Ballard's
work, "Chip Ballard writes with
heart and compassion about a
part of Florida that is too often
overlooked, the interior of the
state. His writing is comfortable
and approachable, but he's
never afraid to see the dark
edges around all that bright,
Florida sunlight."
Concludes Wilber, He's
earned a place among the best
of those Florida writers who
understand their state and, its
joys and sorrows, its promise
and its perilous future.

was presented an award by the Special Forces Association for his work with military
members and veterans who've sustained traumatic brain injuries and other neuropsy-
chiatric disorders. Presented by Green Berets, the award read, "For dedication and
duty for treating individuals who bear the scars of war." The award was one of few pre-
sented by the association. Villalba accepted it stating, "It's my pleasure and honor to
assist these brave men and women who have so proudly served our country." He is

OPERATION ROUND UP


FLOAT WINNERS


With the exception of Santa Claus, decorated and lighted floats are the most anticipat-
ed highlight of the Hardee County Chamber of Commerce's annual Christmas Parade
in downtown Wauchula. This year's theme was "The 12 Days of Christmas," and win-
ners of the float competition Saturday night are pictured here. Tied for first place in the
business division were CF Industries and the Florida Institute for Neurologic
Rehabilitation. Second went to both Big T Tire and Mosaic. Third place was owned by
MidFlorida Credit Union. In the non-profit category, first-place winner was Hardee
Correctional Institution. Florida's First Assembly of God took second place, while Zolfo
Springs Elementary School won third.

Operation Round Up, Peace River Electric Cooperative's charitable foundation, recent-'
ly granted $7,500 to Manatee Glens to assist with expansion of its youth program. With
this expansion, Manatee Glens will open two one-room schoolhouses, one for emo-
tionally-challenged middle-school students and.another for children of all ages who
require intensive care. The iBradenton facility offers mental health and addiction serv-
ices to more than 12,000/Florida patients annually, and has operated a successful
school program.for elementary students for 12 years. Operation Round Up is a pro-
gram made possible by PRECO members, who "round up" their power bills to the near-
est dollar, with that extra cash going to charity. Here, Operation Round Up directors
Ellen Hamel and Mal Guri~n flank representatives from Manatee Glens.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
In the days of Herod, king of
Judea, there, was a priest
named Zechariah. ... The
angel told him, "Your wife
Elizabeth will bear a son,
and you shall name him
John. ... He will be a fore-:
runner of the Messiah, pos-
sessed by the. Spirit and
power of Elijah."
Luke 1:11,13,17 (NEB)

FRIDAY
Six months after Zacharias'
vision, the angel Gabriel was
sent from God to a Galilean
town, Nazareth by name, to
a young woman who was
engaged to a man called
Joseph, a descendant of
David.'The girl's game was
Mary.
Luke 1:26-27 i(PME)
SATURDAY
And the angel said to her,
"Do not be afraid, Mary, for
you have found favor with
God. And, behold, you will
conceive and bear a son,
and you shall call His name
Jesus. He will be great and
will be called, the Son of the
Most High, and the Lord
God will give to Him the
throne of his father David."
Luke 1:30-32 (RSV)
SUNDAY
This is the story of the birth
of the Messiah. Mary, His
mother, was betrothed to
Joseph. Before the marriage
she found she was with child
by the Holy Spirit. ... Joseph
wanted to have the marriage
contract set'aside quietly.
Matthew 1:18-19 (NEB)

MONDAY
The angel appeared to him
in a dream, 'Joseph, son of
David," said the angel, "Do
not be afraid to take Mary
home with you as your wife.
It -is by the Holy Spirit that
she has conceived this child.
She will bear a son, and you
shall give Him the name
Jesus (Savior); for He will
save His people from their
sins."
Matthew 1:20b-21 (NEB)

TUESDAY
In those times a decree went
out from Caesar Augustus
that all the world should be
enrolled (a census). ... All
went to be enrolled, each to
his own city.
Luke 2:1,3 (RSV)
WEDNESDAY
Joseph also went up from
Galilee, from the city of
Nazareth to Judea, to the
city of David, which is called
Bethlehem, because he was
of the house and lineage of
David, to be enrolled with
Mary, his betrothed, who
was with chiid.
Luke 2:4-5 (RSV)

Bowling Green Faith Assembly Of God Celebrates 35th Homecoming Nov. 13


PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY
Pastor James W. Miller plays the organ. He founded the
church 35 years ago on Orange Street west of U.S. 17.
with his family and the Witt family of four.


Pastor's wife, Judy Miller plays the piano. Services are
held at 10:50 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Sundays and 7:30
p.m. Wednesdays.,Sunday attendance is 120 to 150.


Playing electric piano

The Miller Family sang at the. homecoming Sunday morning and evening. From left are
Julia Mink, Stephanie Mink, Judy Miller, Sam Rawls and Dr. James W. Miller, 75. Church
is located at 3947 U.S. 17 North and was built about 1980.


The Gulf State Quartet sang during both services Nov. 13. From left are Paul Clark,
Shuree Rawls, Chris Hodges and Gregg Rawls.


Greetings from Fort Green!
Fort Green youth are busy
practicing the Christmas pro-
gram, which will be on Sunday
night. Dec.18, beginning at 6.
The adult choir program will be
that morning. Everyone is busy
learning songs and new lines. If
you do not have anywhere to go
on that Sunday night, come on
out to Fort Green. After the pro-
gram in the sanctuary, a certain
Jolly Old Man will put in an
appearance_ in the fellowship
hall.
Avie Hogenauer became Mrs.
Allei Eures on Nov. 26. She
and Allen were married in a
beautiful sunset ceremony on
the beach at Anna Maria Island.
For about the past 20 years.
Avie has vacationed at the
Nautilus and felt it fitting to get
married on the beach. Kavlee;'
TK. and Gavin were the atten-
dants. It was a small but moving
gathering as Brother Steve Mc-
Gaughey performed the wed-
ding ceremony.
Randy Davis is doing his part
to jumpstart the economy. He
retired from Hardee Correc-
tional Institution on Monday,
Nov. 28. He had worked for the
state for 24 years. His work
companions honored him with a
party and gave him a rod and
reel. He will certainly put this
to good use, and best wishes are
extended to him and his family
as he embarks on a new, hope-
fully more relaxed, time of his
life.
Carol and Johnnie Brown had


a very nice Thanksgiving. They
went to DeFuniak Springs,
where son Johnmark and his
wife, Amy, and grandchildren
Beka and Aaron live, and all
journeyed on up to Tennessee to
spend Thanksgiving with their
youngest son, Matthew and
family. They all had a super-
good time and the weather was
cold!
Lisa, Lonnie and L.J. joined
James Eures in attending Fort
Green last Sunday. We were
happy to have them worship
with us. Leigh Ann and Billy
Line were also in attendance,
and he was strong enough to
walk without his walker. Lila
Blink was able to attend church
and she said she will only be
with us two more Sundays and
then will be relocating. Betty
Walker and Clint and Mildred
Cooper and Gwen Albritton
were at church. It is always
great to see our wheelchair
members able to attend church.
Faye and Randy Davis and
Norma Alejandro went to Sea
World last Friday when school
dismissed early. Norma enjoyed
riding the Polar Express and
they all enjoyed the Christmas
musical that was presented
showing the birth of Christ and
the real meaning of Christmas.
Faye said they were very pleas-
antly surprised and recom-
mends to everyone to go see it
for yourselves.
The holiday decorations are
especially pretty but when a
theme park is not ashamed of


the real reason for celebrating
this time of the year, they are
* tops in my book!
Avie and Allen. Eures, Avis
Sasser, Sarah Spears ard Sher-
man and I went to the Heartland
Chorale and really, enjoyed it.
We all agreed the seats were
much more comfortable!
It is really dry in Fort Green.
We were Lakeland visitors last
week and it rained on us steadi-
ly. and fairly hard. As we ap-
proached the Hardee County
line it dwindled off and we only
got 1/10 of an inch at our home:
We are still having to water the
grove.
Tina Owens said she has been
advised she will be given a
Winn-Dixie watch when her
60th, anniversary arrives short-
ly. She said the Jacksonville
Corporate Office and the Miami
Division attended her recent
interview. She began work with
this company on her 20th birth-
day! We all were teasing her at
church and said maybe they
would give her a hundred dol-
lars or a thousand dollars for
each year! No such luck; but at
least they know and appreciate
her.
Willie Godwin is going to
Brandon for a consultation on
his knee. He still cannot walk
and is in pain. Sharon Lee is in
severe pain after the recent
chemo and is considering radia-
tion treatment. Rosine Proctor
is still in, the Winter Haven
Hospital. Buck Toole is still not
able to attend church and Amy
Duke is still recuperating.
Hopefully she will be better by
the 12th, as we are having a
baby shower at church.
Please remember to pray for
one another, the military and
our country.

Letter To Editor
'12 Days Of Christmas'
Parade Was Wonderful


To whom it may concern:
It's 7:10 on Saturday night. I
just returned home from Hardee
County's "12 Days of Christ-
mas" parade and I feel com-
pelled to write a letter. I want to
say a huge THANK YOU to
everyone in the community who
participated in what was clearly
the best parade since I moved
here in 2002.
While, yes, the floats were
creative, what clearly made this
year stand, out was something
totally different. Even 'in a time
when our nation is experiencing
an economic crisis, the length of
the parade and the amount of
new groups participating in the.
.event was breathtaking. It illus-
trated a strength of giving that is
always desperately needed.
As everyone knows, many
individuals in our community
are suffering. In fact, according
to census statistics, Hardee is
even one of seven counties in
our state with the highest pover-
ty levels. This causes some indi-
viduals to not contemplate what
will be under the tree this year,
but what will hopefully be on
the table at the next meal.
Your simple act of agreeing
to participate in the parade
(especially if it was your first
time) exemplified not only what
this season should be about, but
what a rural community should
illustrate: one individual taking
the time out to brighten; aroth-
er's doy. And that's what you
did. if even -only for'.a brief
hour, the community of man
helped everyone release his/her


1


worries and smile. The joyous
sights and sounds of universal
smiles and season's greetings
filled our Main Street as every-
one felt accepted, regardless of
their situation.
So, once again, thank you.
but let's not stop there. If God
has blessed you financially this
season, continue the unselfish-
ness modeled by this event.
Look for ways to brighten the
days of others. Forgo a daily
treat and give to the organiza-
tion collecting outside of the
store. Buy a gift for the Angel
Tree at church or donate some-
where. Surprise a family by
doing something unexpected
like paying for their gas. Just do
something.
We know others are hurting.
Let's continue the spirit of the
"12 Days of Christmas" parade
and show other communities
that, despite what the census
may say, Hardee County knows
how to unite to help its.resi-
dents.
Have a great season and God
bless.
