Fire Chief Choate Resigns At End Of Month


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
After nearly 21 years of serv-
ice to Hardee County, Fire
Rescue Chief and Public Safety
Director Michael Choate has
resigned and accepted a deputy
chief position with Polk County
Fire Rescue.
Choate sent his resignation
letter to County Manager Lex
Albritton on Jan. 27 and made it
effective Feb. 29.
"I am sad to leave it all


behind, yet I am very excited
for my future and the future of
my family," he wrote in the res-
ignation letter.
Choate said the opportunity
basically fell in his lap and he
applied for the job in early
December.
His career began as a volun-
teer firefighter. He then began
taking courses and became a
certified firefighter/paramedic
and worked his way up the lad-
der all the way to the top,


becoming Chiet on Aug. 3,,
2002. He assumed the role of
Public Safety Director on Dec.
27, 2004.

He said he will continue to
work until the end of February
instead of using accrued comp
time.

Choate has also served as the
Southwest Region Director of
the Florida Fire Chief's As-
sociation.


"Everything that has been
accomplished over the years I
owe to my co-workers and
staff," he said. "I have only
been part of a team."
Albritton said an interim fire
chief would be named until a
full-time replacement can be
hired. The county recently hired
Bob Clayton as deputy fire
chief and he could take over on
an interim basis but Albritton
said no decision has been made
at this time.


The position paid Choate
$65,583 annually.
Choate was recently cleared
of accusations of on-the-job
misconduct adJ covering for
former Emergency Manage-
ment Director Rich Shepard,
who resigned on Dec. 30 amid
allegations of falsely reporting
being at vork.
More recently, a few fire/res-
cue employees have filed hos-
tile work environment com-
plaints with the county.


Jane Long, human resource
director for the county, said she
could not comment on the com-
plaints because they are still
under investigation.
She has not had an opportuni-
ty to verify or investigate all of
the complaints and estimates it
will be a couple weeks before it
is completed.
Choate said he will continue
to live in Hardee County and
commute to Bartow where he
will be stationed.


School Negotiations Break Down


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The movement toward set-
tling the school negotiations has
been one-sided.
Despite numerous meetings
between the Hardee County
School Board administrative
team and the Hardee Education
Association/United, there is
still no agreement on a 2011-12
contract. The latest bargaining
sessions have shown conces-
sions from union reps while the
administration has not budged.
At the end of last Friday's
negotiations, another meeting,
Wasn't set. The administrative
team of Woody Caligan, George
Kelly and Marie Dasher said


simply that negotiations were at
a deadlock and that they would
be in touch about the date for
another meeting.
The School Board scheduled
a special meeting on Tuesday
morning to discuss the negotia-
tions and collective bargaining
proposals. After a brief open
meeting, the Board broke into
an executive session. Results of
that closed meeting were un-
available at press time. The next
regular School Board meeting
is Feb. 9.
Union proposals, which be-
gan in September with a pro-
posed six percent salary, in-
crease, have dwindled to step
increases for both facull and


School-Related Personnel.
There is a request for a $2,000
bonus for all employees plus a
$500 bonus for those in step 17-
23 and 25-or higher, who would
not get a step increase, and
$1,200 reimbursement for the
120 people on the Health In-
surance Flex Plan B.
The administrative team pro-
posal has remained constant for
months with step increases, a
$1,500 bonus for all employees
plus the $500 bonus and up to
$1,200 for Health Insurance
Flex Plan B. They say the
School Board is committed to
no recurring expenses, such as
salary increases, and want to

IDA Audit Gathers Concern


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A motion to commend the
Harde'e Industrial Development
Authority (IDA) for its "clean
audits" drew heated discussion
at a recent meeting.
At the end of the regular
' evening commission meeting
on Jan. 19, there was an extra
B time for comments. Begun by
Commissioner Rick Knight's
motion, the discussion eventu-


ally involved audience mem-
bers who were not satisfied
with the recently completed
IDA 2009 and 2010 fiscal year
audits.
The IDA, established, in
February 1984, had not filed an
annual report or audit until
directed by the state in
November to do so or the coun-
ty's revenue funding would be
adversely affected.
Audits for the 2008-09 and


2009-10 fiscal years were com-
pleted and filed Dec. 28, just
before the state's Dec. 31 dead-
line. Knight suggested IDA
members, mostly from the busi-
ness and financial segment of
the community, should be com-
mended for their efforts
because they are not paid and
contribute a lot of volunteer
hours in service on the IDA and.
associated Economic Develop-
ment Council.

-Counterfeit IDs Draw Charges


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
. A Wauchula man was arrest-
ed on Tuesday facing charges of
manufacturing false IDs.
Dionisio Ramirez, 27, of
1332 Old Bradenton Road,
Wauchula, was booked into the
Hardee County Jail shortly after
2 p.m. after a. search of his
home and interviews.,
According to the report of
lead Det. David Drake, the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
received information from Polk
County deputies of a Wauchula
residence where counterfeit
identification cards were manu-
factured.
At the home, consent for a
search was given and two lap-
top computers, a laminator, a
color copier, a digital camera


Ramirez
and numerous small media stor-
age devices were seized from a
back bedroom converted into an
office.
Information from the net-
working business office showed


107 counterfeit identification
cards..
When questioned, Ramirez
allegedly acknowledged mak-
ing approximately 100 Social
Security cards, 70 resident alien
cards and 70 Mexican driver's
licenses, for which he charged
from $40 to $80 apiece.
He reportedly said he was
doing this to help immigrants
get vehicles and jobs.
He was charged with four
counts of unauthorized posses-
sion of a driver's license, each a
third -degree felony, and one
count of making or having
materials to counterfeit driver's
license or identification cards, a
second degree felony.
Bail was set at $9,000.
Ramirez remained in jail on
Wednesday.

This is almost the reverse of
statewide voting in the Florida
Presidential Primary, which
showed Romney with 46 per-
cent of the vote and Gingrich
trailing with 33 percent.
The Hardee tally was unoffi-
cial as there was still one over-
seas ballot to be counted. But'
with absentees/early voter
merged with the 12 precincts, it
is almost over. Early voting
started one week earlier. Jan:
23-28.
"It went well and there were
no glitches." said Supervisor of
Elections Jeff Ussery.
A surprising third candidate.
Rick Santorum. captured 15.62
percent of the vote here, a little
better than the state results of
13 percent.
Of the 4.209 registered Re-
publicans in Hardee County. the
28.28-percent who went to the
polls also had at least three
votes for each of the nine candi-
dates on the ballot.
Nationally. there remain only
four viable candidates. The
fourth. Ron Paul. took 8.82 per-
cent of the local vote. a little
above the seven percent state-
wide.
Candidates Herman Cain.
Michele Bachmann. Jon Hunts-
man. Gary Johnson and Rick
Perry each took eight or less
votes locally. but each has said
they have withdrawn from the
Republican presidential refer-
Clldums.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Eddie Shontage of rural Wauchula passed away Jan. 3 at the
age of 84. He was one of Hardee County's best citrus growers and
also an excellent vegetable row crop farmer.
He spent 64 years in the citrus and cattle business. He served
in the U.S. Navy in World War II.
He had spirit and joy, said his pastor, Danielle Upton of First
United Methodist Church in Wauchula. One of his favorite pas-
sages in the Bible was Proverbs 3:1-6. This is about keeping God's
law and commandments for a long life and peace, promoting truth
and mercy to have favor and good understanding with God and
man, trusting the Lord with all your heart and not leaning to your
own understanding, acknowledging God in all your ways and God
will direct your paths.
Long-time neighbor Carl Weis said he moved to Schontag ter-
ritory about 1950. Schontag paid him 50 cents an hour. "He most-
ly did hard work. Our families were close. He was a good farmer
and had a lot of knowledge and truths. He dug up pines and pal-
mettos to farm."
Marcus Shackelford said Eddie could be the most aggravating
person in the world and the softest touch. Heavas close to Orion
Shackelford, another local farmer. Eddie was the best at growing
young orange trees and remembered 50 cents and $1 a day labor.
He was loyal, a good provider, a good steward of the land, a
good friend, lived through tough times, and had a wonderful wife
named Harriet, recalled Shackelford.
Schontag said the local citizen he most admired was the late
Joel Evers, educator, attorney and judge.

A new Wauchula business is JP's Smokehouse BBQ
Restaurant on Main Street across from Wauchula State Bank. The
owners are Jason Gray, 40, and his son Justin of Wauchula. They
are open Monday through Friday from 11 to 9 and for Sunday
lunch.
The food is excellent. Jason has won about 40 awards for his
barbecue.
JP's fare includes pork, ribs, chicken, Texas beef brisket, hand-
made 1/2-pound hamburgers, and on Friday nights hand-cut steaks.
They offer private catering.

I saw a few Tampa Bay Bucs football games last season. Head
coach Raheem Morris was fired after his team posted a 4-12 record
and has been replaced by former Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano.
The best athlete I noticed last season in Tampa was rookie
Carolina Panther quarterback Cam Newton, age 22, 6-5 and 248
pounds. The Heisman winner and No. I draft pick last year guided
Auburn to the national NCAA championship.
The College Park, Ga., native signed a $22 million contract
and set an NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a quarterback.
His favorite quarterbacks include Payton Manning, Tom Brady,
Michael Vick, Fran Tarkeriton, Randall Cunningham and Steve
Young.

Citrus baron Otto Varner of Arcadia was impressed by Denver
quarterback Tim Tebow who led Denver to a 29-23 upset overtime
playoff win over Pittsburgh. He was amazed that the Christian ath-
lete completed 10 passes for 316 yards, a 31.6-yard average, not-
ing one of Tebow's favorite Bible verses is John 3:16. Tebow wore
black patches under his eyes at UF with that and other Bible vers-
es.
Winter Haven guru Bill Garrett of Triangle Chemical predict-
ed New England would defeat Denver 37-17. The actual score was
45-10.

Gary Lewis and The Playboys will sing Friday, Feb. 17, at the
SFCC Theatre for the Performing Arts in Avon Park. Tickets are
$30 and available at Wauchula State Bank. The event is presented
by the Avon Park Breakfast Rotary Club.

Warren Buffet, the world's third richest man, and syndicated
conservative columnist Cal Thomas have different opinions on tax
rates and the role of the federal government.
Buffet wants the tax rates increasedon the rich. In 2010 he
paid a tax rate of 17 percent on his $39.8 million of taxable income.
'His office staff paid a percentage in the 30s.
Time magazine recently reported Buffett was thankful for his
genes, luck and birthplace, wrote Rana Foroohar. He believes in the
ability of government to make people's lives better. Buffett, 81, has
become wealthy by investing in the stock market and owning com-
panies. He is giving away 99 percent of his $45 billion fortune.
He wants higher taxes on the rich and government programs to
help people. "We have to get serious about shared sacrifice."
Buffett wants an overhaul of health care with more competition. He
said current health care is a 'I.lpr-~.iiim" in America. He wants
CEOs of publicly bailed-out institutions that go bust to lose their
fortunes as well,
Buffett suggests rich people send their kids to public schools
so they would be more Jlit -i', to try to improve the public K-12 sys-
tem.
Buffett lives in a five-bedrouom house in Omaha, Nebraska.

panies.

son suggested waiting until
state officials who demanded
the audits review them and
offer their comments. County
attorney Ken Evers, who also
represents the IDA and EDC,
said the state does not review
the reports, just makes sure they
are filed in a timely matter.
Commissioner Sue Birge said
there were three commissioners
at the audit report meeting and
"it is commendable to get a
clean audit. There's a table full
of business people who give of
their time weekly or monthly,
but the discrepancies should be
cleared up."
Nancy Craft and Frank
Kirkland both took issue with
the audits. They "contained
quite a few discrepancies and
should not be swept under the
rug," said Craft, while Kirkland
said, "Mr. Knight, you should
read the audits; they're eye-
opening and Mr. Evers should-
n't be putting them under the
table. The Florida Statutes tells
the benefits of doing audits and
it behooves the commission to
do its own audit due to those
benefits."
Evers said those discrepan-
cies were common in first
audits "in how many years'?"
interrupted Craft. Evers contin-
ued to say that the discrepancies
were mostly how to improve
invoices and other issues and
were not significant. He said the
audits settled the insinuation
that there was missing money.


"That was answered by the
audit," he stated.
2008-09 Audit
Completed by Larson Allen
consulting firm of Lakeland,
the initial audit report summary
says, "the financial statements
... present ,fairly, in all materi-
al respects, the financial posi-
tion of the governmental activi-
ties and the major fund of the
Authority."
It notes, however, a missing
management's discussion and
analysis that accounting princi-
ples require to be present to
supplement the basic financial
statements. Such missing infor-
mation is required by the Gov-
ernmental Accounting Stan-
dards Board as an essential part
of financial reporting for plac-
ing the basic financial state-
ments in an appropriate opera-
tional, economic or historical
context,. "Our opinion on the
basic financial statements is not
affected by this missing infor-
mation."

He lives on about $150,000 a year. He tries to steer clear of
debt. His investment timeline is 10 years or more, unlike some day
traders who sometimes buy and sell a stock within a few hours or
days. His dad was a U.S. Congressman.
Buffett is President Obama's highest profile supporter, says
Time. Companies should pay higher tax rates as well as million-
aires. Companies that send jobs overseas should not get tax breaks
for doing so.
Buffett drinks a 60-ounce Coke (prefers cherry and owns
Coca-Cola stock) a day and hates broccoli and asparagus since
childhood. He has a diploma from the Dale Carnegie course on
how to win friends and influence people.
He believes unemployment will greatly improve when
America returns to one million housing starts a year (now
685,000). He is a value investor, buying stocks and companies sell-
ing for less than they are fundamentally worth. In the stock market
panic in 2008 Buffett bought a lot of stock to show his confidence
in America. That was patriotic and reassuring to many Americans.
He praised our leaders, including President Bush and President
Obama, for how they handled the storm.
Right now America has too many houses. The recovery will
take a long time, but it will happen.
Buffett suggests higher taxes on the rich, do not lower corpo'-
rate taxes, do not let companies receive foreign profits tax-free,
stop gains on stocks held for "10 seconds," make directors forfeit
five years of pay if their companies have to be bailed out, have
fewer private schools for kids of the rich, and reform health care by
promoting more competitiveness. Allowing short-term investors to
have 60 percent of their gains taxed as long-term is "nuts".
,Cal Thomas, the conservative who writes he is among the
upper one percent, says government is overspending and gave
plenty of blame to President Obama.
"Why should those of us who work for a living give more
money to a government that under Democrats and Republicans has
been such a poor steward of what we have already provided?"
Taxing the rich more will not help unless the government learns to
live within taxpayers' means, he wrote.
Thomas says Obama wants four more years: to continue the
policies he has inflicted on us the last three years, writes Thomas.
Why should his same policies miraculously work given more time?
The national debt has grown to $15 trillion. Over 40 percent of
Americans pay no income taxes.
Obama should not promote envy against the rich and success-
ful. The poor should embrace the principles to allow most of them
to become self-reliant. A man should provide for his children.
Women should have self-regard not to create children who will be
neglected. Thomas says among poor African-Americans there
remain too many fatherless children, too many uneducated and
hopeless women, and too many'men in prison.
Thomas said the president should stress optimism, self-regard,
and economic, social and spiritual principles that built and sus-
tained America, not guaranteed outcomes.
"Government is not our keeper. We are our own and our neigh-
bor's keepers. Addicting more and more people to government and
the view that others owe them a living is the worst form of cov-
etousness. There's a commandment against coveting your neigh-
bor's property.
"Envy has never created a single job, put a family back togeth-
er, encouraged a man to provide for his children or endowed young
women with the self-regard that would encourage them not to cre-
ate children they too often neglect," wrote Thomas.


sentatives of the business com-
munity. During the fiscal year
ending Sept. 30, 2009, the
Authority entered into several
contracts with certain compa-
nies with which certain Board
members are associated, with
the purpose of providing servic-
es." The total payments to
those organizations during the
year were $12,505 and revenue
received from them were
$13,585. Two board members
are employed at a financial
institution where the IDA had
$715,225 cash at the end of the
fiscal year.
Members of the IDA at that
time were Marcus Shackelford,
Rick Justice, Mike Manley,
Lory Durrance, Joe Albritton,
Jim See, Vanessa Hernandez
and Terry Atchley. Shackelford
and Manley have since resigned
and Atchley has been replaced
as Hardee County Commission
liaison by Commissioner Sue
Birge.
In its cover letter, the auditor
notes six deficiencies consid-
ered to be material weaknesses,
a problem in internal controls
which h. a '-" ;ei:.,nabh,- ip ,,i-
ability thjt a. n .iisijtermernt oi the
entity's financial t[atemenits
would not be detected and cor-
rected on a timely basis.
The first material weakness is
not being able to maintain inter-
nal controls.. The IDA says it
will contract services of a CPA
firm to correct this.
The second is not separating
accounting duties, with one per-
son opening mail, preparing
checks and bank statements and
reconciling them, not creating
an audit trail. This could cause
cash accounts to have irregular-
ities. IDA says it will change
office procedures.
The third is similar, with
management -not having inter-
nal control over accounting and
financial reporting and financial
statements are susceptible to
material misstatements. IDA
will contract with a CPA firm to
implement these.
The fourth weakness in not
filing annual financial and audit
reports. The IDA response is
that management only recently
became aware of these require-
ments and will make plans to
comply with the annual require-
ment.
The fifth weakness is adjust-
ments made in information nec-
essary to complete the audit.
Inventory of capital assets,
depreciation, activity for a
Property Owners Association
which has never been filed with
IRS and rental management not
record affected the fund balance
and expense balances "which
were materially misstated. The
IDA response is to agree, but
made no plan to correct it.
The final weakness was a
lack of supporting documenta-
tion causing a deficiency in the
audit trail. Monthly bank recon-
ciliations are not printed and
were not performed on all bank
accounts held. Several minutes
did not include a listing of
attendees. Expenses on park
improvements were not docu-
mented. IDA says it has
accounting and policy proce-
dures are changed to remedy
this.
A following management let-
ter notes that cash receipts were
held at the office more than a
few days before being deposit-
ed in the bank and recommends
more timely deposits to avoid
checks being misplaced.
2009-10 Audit
The second audit is quite sim-
ilar to the first one, however
noting net assets of $5.1 mil-
lion, an increase of $966,018.
It does go into detail on the
FS Chapter Mosaic Develop-


ment Agreement for the South
Meade Mine extension, a way
for economic alleviation for the
impacts of mining and a way to
create other industry to replace
mining when it is completed.
One of these is the Hardee
Broadband Project which
brings middle and last mile
technology to the entire 600
square miles of the county.
It also notes that the IDA "is
economically dependent upon
annual grant reimbursements
from the Hardee County Eco-
nomic Development Authori-
ty." For the fiscal year ending
Sept. 20, 2010, 77 percent of
the IDA total revenue and 100
percent of the IDA's program
revenue were provided by
EDC.
Since both audits were com-
pleted by the same firm at the
same time, the six deficien-
cies/material weaknesses noted
above are repeated. It also notes
that cash is borrowed from bank
accounts and later replenished
when cash is available. Not
recorded as transfers, this caus-
es revenues and expenses to be
inflated, says the auditor.
,; It again notes that "a property
owners association has not been
established but is merely addi-
tional bank accounts with the
IDA."
The final note is that the rules
of the Auditor General require

legal authority for the IDA, and
that the Authority also did not
meet any of the special condi-
tions required in Section
218.503.1 Florida Statutes.

Union representatives Gilbert

Paul Lakowski and Peace River
Basin Service Unit director
Dick Daggett say the School
Board has the money to meet
the union request.
While most districts have a
six percent reserve as recom-
mended by the state, Hardee
school reserves are 22 percent,
presently at a total of about $16
million, say union representa-..
tives who insist school employ-
ees need the $2,000 bonus to
make up for the three percent
loss because of the state's
demand that they pay toward
retirement.
The administrative team
countered with several news
reports around the state saying
the governor's proposed $1 bil-
lion in state education funding
will be depleted by the House
and Senate commitments to
replace the Federal Jobs Fund,
and for reading and school
recognition programs. They say
any wage increases could cost
the equivalent of 91 jobs in the
next school year.
Most of the 60 employees
attending Friday's negotiations
left disgruntled, terming it a
waste of time and effort.

Letter To The Editor

Will Hardee Be Known

As The Garbage County?


COURTESY PHOTOS
Shown here are most of the about 70 volunteers who helped make the benefit a success. Thanks to their hard work
and the help of hosts Jame and Earl Gaskins, many people said this may have been one of the largest and most suc-
cessful fundraisers ever in Hardee County. In total, $20,570 was raised for Chloe's treatment.

Yard Sale, Concert Set To Help Baby Chloe


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
When facing a bump in the
road there are two things people
tend to do, turn around and give
up or muster all their courage
and face it head on'.
Luckily for Chloe Marie
Goss, her parents chose the lat-
ter. They chose to do everything
they could, and even things they
thought they couldn't, to help
give Chloe a better life.
As previously reported, Baby
Chloe was diagnosed with a
rare and possibly terminal dis-
ease. called Pelizaeus-Merz-
bacher Disease.
Although incurable, there are
treatments available in China
that could help Chloe live a nor-
mal and relatively healthy life.
Seeing as these treatments
are expensive and the family
will have to travel to China to
get them, Chloe's parents,.
Justin and Sara Goss, decided to
turn to the community for help.
Hoping to get as much support
as possible, the Gosses set up
events and websites for people
to donate.
Recently, a barbecue dinner
benefit was .held at First
Christian Church in Wauchula
to help pay for the treatment.
Thanks to people like Jame and
Earl Gaskins and about 70 vol-


unteers, that fundraiser was a
huge success.
Of the 1,500 meals sold,
1,400 of them were served on
Friday. The remaining meals
were donated to local charities
the same day.
In total, the amount raised
was $20,570. Chloe's treatment
costs around $26,300. How-
ever, this doesn't include travel
or living expenses while in
China, or Chloe's followup care
when she returns to the United
States.
Now, the Gosses are hoping
that the community continues to
support them in the last two
upcoming fund-raising events.
This Saturday, the Gosses are
having a yard sale at L. Cobb
Construction Inc. They will be
selling various items which
were donated from people all
over the community and sur-
rounding areas.
Items include clothes of all
sizes, furniture, kitchen appli-
ances, TVs, luggage, bags, and
much more.
The yard sale will be from 7
a.m. to 4 p.m. Cobb Construc-
tion is located at 401 S. Sixth
Ave., which is right next to
Burger King.
Then on Friday, Feb. 10, the
final event to help Chloe will
take place.


The barbecue benefit dinner, organized and hosted by
Jame and Earl Gaskins, was a huge success. In the pic-
ture are (from left) Earl Gaskins, Jame Gaskins, Sara
Goss holding Chloe, Justin Goss, and Jason Gray from
JP's Smokehouse BBQ.

I would rather have a mind
opened by wonder than one
closed by belief.
--Gerry Spence

The Arizona Cardinals are the
oldest franchise in profes-
sional football. The organiza-
tion began in Chicago in
1899 as the Morgan Athletic
Club.


Here, Chloe takes a break from all of the excitement to
spend time with her favorite person, Grandma Marilyn
Goss.


Thanks..tq; a, friend of Sara
Goss, singerti:Heather Williams
will perform at the benefit con-
dert at First Christian Church.
Goss thought it would be a
great idea to have Williams as
the performer since Williams
has a very touching past, having
had a rough childhood and los-
ing a child while he was very
young.
Doors will open at 6 p.m. at
First Christian Church; located
at 1121 Louisiana St. in
Wauchula, where the concert
will take place. With the pur-
chase of a $25 ticket, you will
receive food from Jersey


Mike's Subs. During that time
there will be a meet-and-greet
with Williams. You will also get
Williams' CD. The concert will
begin at 7:30 p.m.
Of every ticket, $20 will go
.directly to the Goss family and
$5 will be for singer Williams.
Tickets can be purchased by
calling 773-9243 or by going to
onefamilyonefocus.com.
Sara Goss is-very happy with
how much the community has
supported and prayed for her
daughter. "Our amazing com-
munity really came through for
our family," she says.

CHURCH NEWS
by Diane Burget
Pastor Bob Winne opened our
worship service on Jan. 22 and
led us in singing. Carole Jones
and Linda Gray provided the
accompaniment on the piano
and organ. Our choir sang a
favorite of mine, "Jesus Saves."
The offering prayer was
given by Don Merillat and the
offering was collected by
Lowell Gordon and Bill Burget.
Every Sunday Pastor Bob
brings us interesting and
thoughtful messages straight
from the Word of God and
today was no different. Today's
message was on the Lord's
Prayer not the prayer we
usually consider as the "Lord's
Prayer," found in Matthew 6
and Luke II, but the prayer of
Jesus found in John 17.


Dear Editor:
On April 22, 2010, I wrote a
Letter To Editor titled, "A snake
in the grass raises its head. It's
looking at Fort Green."
It revealed that Bill Lambert,
director of economic develop-
ment, was busted trying to
sneak out-of-town garbage
(rumored from New York City)
into Fort Green for a landfill
west of Hardee Lakes Park a
cash cow and only 600 trucks a
day, according to County Man-
ager Lex Albritton. Local out-
rage got a "back-off" from the
oligarchs in trade for a mining
overlay and "industrial" land-
use designation in western
Hardee County.
I said then and I am now con-
vinced that western Hardee
County will face an onslaught
of stinking bottom-feeder com-
panies no one. else wants,
thanks to these two. Fort Green
will be depopulated and mined
out. '
Your future?.A wasteland of
stinking industry on top of a
wasteland of unreclaimed
mined-out acreage along CR
663 from Ona to Polk County.
The snake is back and has
three heads.
They court all suitors without -
question. As proof, I provide
the following e-mail excerpts
from the two managers calling
shots in Hardee County with the
full support of County Com-
mission Chair Minor Bryant.
(My clarifications and com-
ments are within parenthesis.)
Excerpts follow:
Lambert (on Sept. 2, 2011, to
Tim Wells of Calusa about his
waste-to-energy plant): "I met
with Ken (Evers) and Lex on
Wed. for several hours regard-
ing the landfill and the best way
to proceed. Additionally, I
am working on several sites'
appropriate for your project and
4 others."
Albritton: "Do you mean 4
other waste-to-energy proj-
ects?"
Lambert: "Two other waste-
to-energy. One you know about
and the other has verbally con-
firmed financing of $8.5 mil-
lion. The IDA is to loan $1.5
million."
Albritton: "We cannot ,nter
into a letter of intent with
Calusa and also agree to the
1MOU (memorandum of under-
standing) that WGP (Waste
Generated Products) has before
us."
Lambert: "All three waste-to-
energy projects need waste
streams that may or may not be
existent and even if they are
existent we do not know
whether or not we can allow
importation of "material" (gar-
bage) into the County political-
ly. Rail is important to two of
the waste-to-energy projects ..."
Albritton: "I agree. The first
could be a Board decision to go
with a transfer station (garbage
put on tractor-trailers) as op-
posed to an (landfill) expan-
sion. (They want to close a per-
fectly good landfill that has
room for at least 40 years.) The
final destination could be from
receipts of the waste stream -
(cash for trash; sacrifice the
west for the rest) one of the
other projects but not Calusa,
unless we invest approximately
1.5-2 mil (give away for
Calusa) WGP can receive
the waste directly from the
haulers without additional pro-
cessing and the transfer station
could consolidate the citizen
deposited waste streams and
transport to WGP facility
(Really? Seen any pictures?
Where is Commissioner Grady
Johnson's WGP video?) If the
projects go belly up the transfer
station accumulates and the
waste gets transported to anoth-
er out of county landfill." (Out-
of-county costs at least 30 per-
cent more than our existing
landfill. Up go our taxes!)
(On Sept. 3, Lambert receives
a message from Commissioner
Sue Birge.) Birge: "No I did not
forget That was to allow
time for me to do my home-.
work before the presentation
since I knew nothing about
there being an alternative ener-
gy project out there being dis-
cussed." (This means deals are
secret, except for the chosen
insiders; apparently, Sue Birge
is not on the inside.)
Lambert: I have talked to 5


different companies with simi-
lar processes over the last 18
months and some of them are
very impressive. (Did. you
know your "Vision" was
garbage? Why not look for
high-tech jobs?) I am trying
to land all three but siting and
competitiveness for garbage is
becoming an issue. How do you
feel the politics would turn out


if we allowed outside garbage
to be transferred into our
County, processed, recycled,
pelletized, converted, or other-
wise into good, non-noxious,
non-polluting useful compo-
nents ... and created a lot (hun-
dreds) of good jobs in the
process? (His statement is right
out of the WGP script; there is
no technology that does this and
the jobs are for garbage sorters.)
The existing landfill could
serve as one location and two
others along the Ona/Ft. Green
road could accommodate the
other projects. Traffic will be
the biggest issue from employ-
ees and trucking."
End of excerpts.
What is -your "Vision" for
Hardee County? Are you see-
ing clearly the Vision the highly
paid, near-sighted twosome has
for Hardee County?
Will the delayed $115,750
"Sustaining Hardee" Vision
Report by Martin Black feature
a string of stinking garbage
processors in western Hardee
County?
He is the same consultant
bringing empty-box WGP to
Florida and Georgia, with
Hardee County "competing" to
be lead dog. When the bell tolls,
-every family in Hardee County
will pay $5,000 more in taxes.
The prevailing wind is from the
east. Where do you live? Are
you on board the garbage train?
They may not know what
questions to ask a WGP strang-
er wanting $30 (now $40) mil-
lion and 100-200 free acres ($4
million) by a railroad track, but
they sure know how to avoid
answering 40 questions from
me, since Nov. 7 about the $40
million they want give WGP.
Do you have any questions?
Now would be the time to ask
them.
One might be the exact loca-
tion of the garbage sites? Next
door to you? It's your money
They are blowing and your kids
who will be stuck with the stig-
ma, "Hardee, The Garbage
County."
A snake raises from the grass
looking west. It has three heads.

Respectfully,
Henry Kuhlman
Fort Green
Editor's Note: Lex .Albritton
chose not to respond.
Lambert's reply: Mr. Kuhlman,
you had asked us over two
years ago to consider these
ideas, your ideas listed above.
We concur and have embraced
them. While none ofthe alterna-
tive/renewable energy projects
show much promise today, they
will someday become a part of
our economy and community.
WGP is just one of those types
of projects you suggested.
Additionally, we have begun
finding a more efficient devel-
opment of Hardee Lakes Park
that hopefidly will not become
intrusive on your planned
lifestyle. We are in the process
of creating a high-tech develop-
ment zone that will be housed
initially in the old Peace River
Electric office building on US
17. We have deployed greater
access to Broadband inter-
net/data access and transmis-
sion that will make us more
competitive in a global econo-
my. We have one of the largest
solar farms in the US being
planned in Hardee County, and
while not a large employer, it
will hopefully introduce us to
new technologies. Our Com-
merce Park continues to grow,
despite a soft economy, with
companies that provide diversi-
ty to an otherwise agricultur-
al/mining economy.
I didn't put the railroad in west-
ern Hardee County. I didn't put
the power plants, natural gas
transmission lines and electric-
ity transmission lines there
either. As a matter of fact I did-
n't put the phosphate under the
ground, the draglines or the
processing facilities that are a
part of the mining process to
feed the billions of us walking
around on this planet. I will
however, through legitimate
public processes continue to
investigate and recruit opportu-
nities to exploit these attributes
to provide hope and employ-
ment chances for future genera-
tions of Hardee County citizens.
Bill Lambert

Hoop Girls In Dist


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The season ended Friday
night.
This week, the Hardee girls
basketball team traveled to
Lake Wales to participate in the
Class 4A, Region 3, District 10
tournament. The fourth-seeded
Lady 'Cats had to face the top-
seed Lady Highlanders on their
own court.
Hardee was slated for three
games in its final week. The
girls played at home against
Palmetto on Tuesday evening.
The game against Fort Meade
on Thursday was cancelled
because the Fort Meade season
was abandoned after a fight fol-
lowing a home game against
Lake Region. Friday finished
the week at Lake Placid.
Against visiting Palmetto, the
Hardee girls weren't able to get
started. It was 10-0 before
Alyssa Casso nailed a long
jumper for the first Lady 'Cat
points of the evening.
The 14 -2 Lady Tigers were
relentless, hitting to hoop from
inside and out, elbowing for
rebounds, very aggressive. At
the end of the first period,
Hardee was down 14-4. By
game's end, Palmetto had the
31-8 victory.
It was similar at Lake Placid
on Friday night, where Hardee
lost 54-32. Junior Robyn
Tanksley was high for Hardee

with 13 points and four re-
bounds. Bailey Carlton added
eight points, four steals and an
assist. Kayla Nichols chipped in
with four points and a steal,
while Allison Smith had two
points and five rebounds and
Casso had two points, three
rebounds, four steals and a pair
of assists.
"I see a lot of improvement in
the girls," commented first-year
head coach Jeanne Adkins. "At
times, they execute plays flaw-
lessly, but they are just not con-
sistent at this point. Last time
we played Lake Placid (a 38-65
loss), we had a running clock
when they got 35 points ahead
of us, so we are showing im-
provement. It was 17-22 at the
half, but they simply outscored
us in the last two quarters. All
of this will come with experi-
ence."
The varsity includes juniors
Tanksley, Ada Metayer and
Stephanie Perez, sophs Casso,
Carlton, Allison Allen-Hunter
and Kayla Nichols, and fresh-
men Allison Smith and Destiny
Thompson. Tamara St. Fort and
Jakaysha Lindsey started with
the team but were sidelined
early on with injuries.
Meanwhile, the junior varsity
Lady Wildcats split games last
week, edging Palmetto and los-
ing at Lake Placid.
The game against Palmetto
was a thriller, more defensive


rict Play
than offensive. It was tied a
couple times, and Hardee
would not quit. As the final
period wound down, Hardee
took a 16-15 advantage, only to
have Palmetto to go back in
front 18-16. Alejandro Solis
knotted it at 18-all with about
three minutes left in the game.
Catherine "Cat" Jackson hit
one-of-two at the free throw
line. That Hardee edge lasted
nearly two minutes before a
junior Lady Tiger hit one of
three foul shots to tie the game
at 19-19.
Araceli Ramos got a free
throw to give Hardee the 20-19
win with three seconds left in
the game.
"We won," said JV coach
Andy Maddox- who had just
taken over the team a few
weeks ago when Ken Leupold
moved to New Mexico. "We
just played hard and played our
hearts out, all out. Fortunately,
we had the best free throw play-
er on the line at the end."
At Lake Placid, the junior
Lady 'Cats had a difficult
assignment, losing 44-22. Alexi
Santana was best scorer with
nine points. Jackson had five,
Diana Gomez four, and Kayshia
Mosely and Honesty Martinez
both two points. Others on the
team are Aundra Pace, Endreina
Martinez, Anna Lazo, Haylee

Two Roads To Get State Funding


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Bostick Road and 'North
County Line Road are two
which will get state funding in
the coming months.
Ken 'Wheeler, new Hardee
Counts Public Works Director/-
Engineer explained them to the
Hardee County Commission at
its Jan. 19 meeting.
Work on Bostick Road,
which will tie its 1,200-foot
drainage system, into those
along U.S. 17,:should begin by
summer. The Kimley-Horn &
Associates contract for
$148,044 is the standard for
these projects and will include
widening and resurfacing the'
road as well as drainage de-
signs, from pre-construction
planning through the project
completion.
The second project approved
was a state Transportation De-
partment funding for needed re-
paving of County Line Road
from U.S. 17 at Bowling Green


east to about 1.14 miles past its
intersection with CR 663A. The
county got the $1.105 million
for the four-mile project when
another county did not use its
SCRAP (Small County Road
Assistance Project) funds and
they were allotted to Hardee.
County Line Road was the next
on the county's list of roads rec-
ommended for SCRAP dollars.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-reappointed Sam Albritton,
Bud Heggie and Donald Gray
to three-year terms on the
Construction Industry Licens-
ing Board and Construction
Industry Board of Adjustments
and Appeals. A vacancy from
the resignation of Benny Hash
is yet to be filled.
-reappointed Charles Parker
and Gordon Norris to three-year
terms on the Planning & Zoning
Board and appointed Shawna
Lambert to. the vacancy of the
resignation of Anita Keene.
-approved Jan. 29-Feb. 3 as


Children's Week and April 1 as
Parents and Children's Day in
the county as requested by Jean
Griffin of the Early Learning
Coalition of Florida's Heartland
Inc.
-approved advertisement
for new director for the Hardee
County Health Department.
-approved registration fees
for two members of the Hardee
County Traffic Safety Team for
a two-day meeting in Orlando.
The monies will come out of
the county travel.budget.
-discussed upcoming work
on the Hardee County Landfill.
Teresa Carver, director of the
solid waste department, said a
resolution was needed before
the work order with SCS En-
gineers could be approved for
initial engineering and design
for opening a hew cell. That has
to. be in place by March 14 in
order to stay on schedule.
The current section will run
out of room in 23 months and it
will take all of that to get a new


section's design and permit
approved, Carver said. It would
not be wise to go out for bids as
SCS is already familiar with the
site and how to tie it into the
new one and meet the time lim-
its set by the Department of
Environmental Protection. The
new one is anticipated to be
permitted to a higher level, 167
feet as opposed to the current
limit.of 142 feet. The new cell
may last as long as 23 years,
barring a disaster which fills it
more quickly.
Commission Chairman Min-
or Bryant said they were also
looking at incineration, a trans-
fer station (to Polk or Okeecho-
bee counties) and other ways of
handling Hardee's solid waste.

In 1798, Eli Whitney secured
a U.S. government contract
for $134,000 to produce
10,000 army muskets.

Of one thing I am certain, the
body is not the measure of
healing-peace is the meas-
ure.
-George Melton


Greetings from Fort Green!
The ground hog is scheduled
to make an appearance Feb. 2,
which is today. Nowadays with
television and the computers,
everyone knows what the
weather is like when he makes
his debut. When I was growing
up, it was whatever the weather
was like in our town, whether or
not he saw his shadow. I sure
hope it is a cloudy day in Feb-
ruary, as I don't want any more
cold weather!
Tina Owens is sporting a
beautiful new' Bulova watch
with diamonds all around the
face. She said it was inscribed
on the back that it was from
Winn-Dixie and the number of
years. I still think $1,000 a year
or at least $100 a year would be
a good retirement gift, if she
ever gets old enough to retire!
Congratulations to Dalton
Richey, who was one of top 16
in the junior division of the
Science Fair. He will go to
regional in Clewiston on Feb.
16. Best of luck there and hope-
fully he will be the very top
contestant!
Arthur Womack is not at
home but in rehab. Hopefully
he will be released shortly.
Pastor Dunn is doing better and
is anticipating returning home.
Gary Oden had one treatment
last Friday and, thankfully, it
did not make him sick. They
reported at church that Daniel
Moore had broken his back and
Sue Conner was sick. Sue
worked at Hardee Memorial
Hospital when I did back in the
'70s. As soon as John Keene's
ankle is well, he'll start chemo.
Please pray hard for all of these.
Hardee County is in the heart
of citrus country. The other day
I was in Wal-Mart and they had
what appeared to be temple
oranges from South Africa for
48 cents each. I hope no one
bought any, and why import
oranges when you can get them
locally?
Jeff and Joann Maddox did a
good job raising their only son,
Todd. I see Todd more now as
he is on the 4-H Foundation.
We were preparing the dinner
for the teacher appreciation
banquet last week and I at-


tempted to get a box of plates
from a top shelf. Naturally, it
fell and the end cut my arm. As
we age our skin gets "rotten"
and any little thing will make a
bad cut and this one was bleed-
ing profusely!
I asked if anyone had any
Band-Aids and when Todd
observed the blood, he went to
his truck and brought in a regu-
lar medicine kit. He had band-
ages, tape, etc. He was very
competent and sympathetic
helping dress the wound!
Naturally, we just think back to
his raising and his mama and
daddy!
Harvey Alderman lives at the
end of County Road '663 but
actually on State Road 62. A
driver didn't see the big red stop
sign and plowed through his
hedge and through his porch
and part of his home. Whoever
it was did a good job on de-
stroying a nice home.
Sherman's mama celebrates a
birthday on Sunday. Our meat
dish will be chicken and dump-
lings. Judy Bargeron knows
how to make the best you have
ever eaten, and Edithf Bassett
told us that Judy got the recipe
from Alex Bassett. After Mrs.
Robinson passed away, Judy
wanted some of "her mama's
dumplings," but didn't know
how she made them. Alex was
from the same part of the coun-
try and could tell her exactly
what to do.
Sherry Smith, Faye Davis,
Tara McGaughey, Edith Bassett
and I met Judy at 8 a.m. last
Thursday and rolled and cut
dumplings until 1:30 p.m. I
believe we all had backaches
that night! The church freezers
are full of raw dumplings. This
is one of Mrs. Mildred's fa-
vorite foods is why we all went
the extra mile. She will be 96,
and church will begin at 10:45
on Sunday morning, as we will
have more than usual singing
and then the covered-dish din-
ner. Come if you can!
Please pray for our country.
It is in bad shape and this is an
election year. Also pray for one
another, the military and the
law enforcement.

5 Hardee Boys Excel In Running


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They're young, but they al-
ready know how to succeed.
Five Hardee boys, Wilney'
Francois, Andre Wilson, Dylan
Davis, Jabri Knighten and
Isaiah Golden were able to
attend the Jimmy Carnes Indoor
Track Meet at the University of
Florida last weekend, courtesy
of the Hardee Athletic Foun-
dation. About 25 relatives and
friends accompanied the group.
Coach James Carpenter took
the quintet to the huge stadium
to participate with 1,800 others
in the meet, which included ath-
letes from Jamaica, Puerto
Rico, Canada and nearly every
state in the nation.
When it was over, one had
gathered three medals and sev-
eral others excelled as well.
Knighten, 10, a returnee on
the team, had the best day, tak-
ing the gold medal in the 400-
meter dash in 1:09.07, silver in
the 200-meter at 29:45, and


bronze in the 55-meter at 8.5
seconds.
Golden, 12, in his first out-
ing, placed sixth in the 200-
meter at 28.6, eighth in the 400-
meter at 1:09.1, and ninth in the
55-meter at 7.98 seconds.
Francois, 7, also a newcomer,
took the bronze medal in the
400-meter at 1:23.8, fourth in
the 55-meter at 9:35 seconds,
and seventh in the 200-meter.
Wilson, 8, placed fourth in
the 400-meter at 1:26.2, sixth in
the 55-meter at 9.66, and ninth
in the 200-meter at 36.9.
Davis, 9, was fifth in his divi-
sion, in the 55-meter at 9.0, sev-
enth in the 400-meter at 1:14.2
and ninth in the 200-meter at
52.67.
The team was safely asleep in
their hotel room when the mas-
sive crash on nearby Interstate
75 interrupted their sleep. They
didn't know until later in the
day-about the huge traffic disas-
ter, but felt the effect in rerout-

*Fashion Grows Fame


For Young Hair Stylist


Downtown Wauchula Had


Lots Of Stores, Eateries


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
SIn clothing, styles and trends
are constantly changing. The
same can be said for hair.
Growing up, Hardee County
native Toby Ellison became
intrigued while watching his
sisters and their friends doing
each other's hair. And now he
has gone on to make a success-
ful career of that interest, one
which has gained the recogni--
tion of fashion experts..
Following high school, El-
lison attended and graduated
from Bradenton Barber Beauty
Academy, now GUTI The
Premier Beauty & Wellness
Academy. Then, in June of
2011, Ellison attended the
Orlando Premier Show. This is
an event where stylists get a
chance to showcase their tal-
ents.
Ellison entered a competition
while there, and won second
place in the fashion bridal seg-
ment, where he only had half an
hour to create a proper bridal
hairstyle.
Shortly after the Premier
Show, Ellison's work was fea-
tured on the cover of "Tampa
Bay Metro" magazine, first in
September and then again in the
October/November issue. He
styled the models' hair for the
cover and spread sheets in the
magazine,
Ellison was doing well for
himself, but things got better at
the Premiere Show. Not only
did he win second place, he also
got to meet an important man
by the name of Rob Smith.
Smith had seen Ellison's tal-
ent and was impressed. In fact,
he was so 'impressed that he
wanted to make Ellison an edu-
cator for Scruples, a hair color-
ing company.
This is a big accomplishment
for Ellison because not just any-
body is chosen for such a posi-
tion, especially someone who is
still a recent graduate from cos-
metology,school.
Ellison's Scruples training
was paid for in full, including
his airfare and hotel stays in
Minnesota for 10 days. His
training was from 7:45 a.m. to 5
p.m. every day, and included
learning about all of the prod-
uc!s and giving presentations.
Becoming a Scruples educa-
tor was a big accomplishment
for Ellison because this gave
him a chance to go to different
schools and salons and educate
them on how to formulate and
apply color to hair.
Even though Ellison is suc-
cessful in his career, he has
another passion, writing. In
fact, Ellison's second book,
"The Prophet vs. The Demons
From Hell," was recently
released. The book is about a
prophet who "... fights to
secure the future of Heaven and
Earth."
Now, Ellison works at
Leslie's Family Haircut as a
Scruples hair educator. Al-
though, in the future, he aspires
to open his own salon.


This is just one of the magazine covers featuring Toby
Ellison's hair designs on the cover.


COURTESY IMAGES
Hardee native Toby Ellison's talents have drawn attention
in the style and fashion industry.
Leslie's is located at 2338 every day. Appointments can be
U.S. 27 N. Sebring. Ellison is made by calling (863) 386-
there from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 1355.


LINCOLNS LIVE!


PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO
Here, President and Mrs. Lincoln look over what is soon to be the Emancipation
Proclamation. Max and Donna Daniels have been portraying the Lincolns since 1988,
and hosted "An Evening With Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln" in Wauchula to raise money for the
Hardee County Cancer Support Foundation. The play focused on the lives of Abraham
and Mary Todd Lincoln before and during the presidency. The two-person show also
talked about their relationship and the early demise of three of their four children. The
play was a clever way to help the public learn more about the Lincolns. All of the pro-
ceeds from the Jan. 21 and 22 run went to assist with medical expenses related to can-
cer.

SPOTLIGHT
Ted and Caye Parloari were
introduced on a blind date.
They had two dates, then Ted,
being in the Air Force, was
transferred to Thule, Greenland,
for a year. They communicated
by letter for a year, building that
special relationship, thus get-
ting married in Knoxville,
Tenn., 50 years ago on July 5,
which was also Caye's mom
and dad's anniversary. They
have one son and three grand-
children.
Ted retired after 35 years

for six years. Caye was a
housewife for many years,
worked for H&R Block for six
years, and filled empty stock-
ings for the needy and retired
from Knox County in Human
Resources after 10 years.
They love to converse with
many people and build relation-
ships. Caye's interest is reading
and taking day trips, whether
they are home or here. Ted's
interest is reading, sports spec-
tator, pool.
Having so much iii common
and best friends, they pretty
much do everything together.
They both enjoy camping,
bowling and playing games.
They have been residents of
Pioneer Creek for seven years
and this season is going to be


the 12th grade.
Q: What was your first vehicle?
A: I didn't have a first vehicle until I
got married.
Q: What was your first job?
A: My first job was working at The
Herald-Advocate after I got married.
Q: What kind of clothes did you
wear?
A: We wore mid-calf skirts with
sweaters and saddle oxfords.
Q: Did you have any pets and ani-
mals?
A: Yes, I had a bulldog named Bull,
and my mama milked our cow every
day for milk.
Q: How was Hardee County back
then, and how has it changed since
then?
A: It had a lot of different stores,
like clothing and grocery stores. There
were a lot of stores in downtown
Wauchula like J.W. Earnest, Eaton's,
Beeson's, Dasher's, Senterfitt's and
Knight's. Senterfitt's and Knight's were
the most popular restaurants.
Q: How long were you married?
A: My wedding was at the Church
of God in Zolfo Springs. I was married
for 46 years to Pete Grice.

Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of'our
readers.


their last snowbird season with
us. They have no real plans as
of where they will winter, but
want to get a larger .home for
their son and family to visit.
They came to our park by way
of the Internet and found the
park to be so friendly and made
it their home. What they will


miss the most is the wonderful
friends and neighbors.
We want to wish them well
in their new endeavor, and we
who know them well will miss
them very much. They are leav-
ing the end of March, but we
can still visit them wherever
they end up.


Week Ending: January 29,2012
Weather Summary: Pleasant, warm temperatures prevailed
across the Sunshine State during the week of January 23 through
29. Temperatures for the week averaged five to thirteen degrees
above normal. Enjoyable daytime highs were in the upper 70s and
80s. Cool evening lows were in the mid-30s to 50s. Showers
brought mostly traces of rain from the Panhandle down to the
southern Peninsula. Marianna and Pensacola reported over one
inch of precipitation. Drying conditions continued to increase the
threat of wildfires. There were three active wildfires reported by
the Florida Forest Service which covered more than 3,000 acres.

Field Crops: Soil moisture supplies were rated short to most-
ly adequate. Most of Florida experienced moderate drought condi-
tions. Severe to extreme drought conditions was reported in the
Panhandle and northern Peninsula. Sugarcane harvesting conclud-
ed in Palm Beach County. Winter wheat was reported in good con-
dition.

Fruits & Vegetables: Dry conditions allowed fieldwork to
progress with some growers irrigating fields. In Miami-Dade
County, growers harvested and replanted winter vegetables. Some
vegetable growers in thesouthern Peninsula were busy planting for
spring crops which included watermelons. Hastings growers began
planting potatoes. Market movement included snap beans, bell
peppers, eggplant, radishes, squash, and strawberries. Producers
shipped light supplies of cabbage, celery, endive, escarole, and
sweet corn.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, pasture condition was
slightly improved from the previous week, but most pasture was in
poor condition. Drought was the first limiting factor to forage
growth. The cattle condition was mostly good as hay and supple-
ments were being fed. In the Panhandle and northern areas, most
pastures were in poor condition. Warmer weather helped winter
pasture in the west Panhandle counties. Most pasture still suffered
from overgrazing and some winter forage was not yet ready for
grazing. Most cattle were in fair to good condition.-In the central
areas, pasture condition was mostly poor to fair. Worsening
drought has hampered forage growth but ryegrass pastures looked
good. Pastures recovered some from the frost. The condition of the
cattle was mostly fair to good. In the southwestern areas, most pas-
tures were in poor condition due to previous frost and drought. The
condition of the cattle was poor to excellent with most in good con-
dition.

Citrus: Temperatures remained above seasonal norms, reach-
ing over 80 degrees in all citrus-growing localities. Rainfall was
slight across the region. Palmdale received the most with 0.66 inch
and two stations, Clewiston and Ft. Pierce, received none at all.
Drought conditions exist across the entire citrus region, ranging
from abnormally dry on the eastern coast, to severe on the west
coast. Drought conditions are per the U.S. Drought Monitor; last
updated January 24, 2012. Seventeen processors and 45 (out of 471
expected) packinghouses have opened this season. Harvesting of
Honey tangerines was'picking up, as early tangerines were almost
finished for the season. Cultural practices included irrigation,
young tree care, and limited hedging and topping.

S-- Museum Matters
Marlene Rickels Hyde
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


LEARN SOMETHING NEW AT THE MUSEUM
Of the many responsibilities as curator of the Cracker Trail
Museum, one that I truly enjoys giving a brief guided tour of the
museum to local third graders.
As part of the Outdoor Classroom, directed by Kayton Nedza,
area students get to spend the day at Pioneer Park learning about
pioneer life and exploring the great outdoors. They are guided
through the Pioneer Village by .Nedza, which includes the Hart
Cabin, the Cracker Trail Post Office and the Bryant Blacksmith
Shop, with stops at'the 1914 Baldwin locomotive, the slurry pump
and diesel engine, then a tour of the Cracker Trail Museum.
They are welcomed to the museum by the ringing of an
authentic 1886 bell that may have been used as a dinner bell. They
are quick to point out that it could have been used in schools and
churches, too. As a former American History teacher myself for
over 25 years, it is such a joy to see their zest for learning.
As the students walk thi- i, the museum, they step back in
time to.a much harder yet muii :simpler way of life that many. of
their ancestors may have endured. When they enter the case room,
one of the first things they notice is the I1-foot alligator hide
mounted on the wall, and always ask if it's real.They are also fas-
cinated by the size of the bones and shark teeth found here in "Bone
Valley" from long.ago.
Walking through the museum, they are always quick with
questions! They are curious about the type of activities pioneer
children enjoyed as well as the kind of chores they had to do. They
enjoy the demonstrations given on how "Ma" would have baked
bread, "put up" preserves and vegetables, or washed clothes.
Some students will mention that it reminds them of the televi-
sion series "Little House on the Prairie."
.1 then explain I remember being in Mrs. Reeves' fourth-grade


GOLD!
In the 1880s, "Birds of Passage" came to Florida from far
away: young men who'd heard about "streets paved with gold,"
thought they'd make a quick killing and return home.
No gold, but they quickly found work building roads, canals
and railroads:
When the Florida Southern reached the Peace River, a few of
its workers were surprised by a familiar smell, one that spoke of
.home. At the time, Sicily had a monopoly on the mining and mar-
keting of sulfur.
While Sicilians were turning their sulfur into gold, other
Europeans were flocking to bathe in the waters of mineral springs
laced with what the Bible calls "brimstone": sulfuric "fountains of
youth" purported to cure all sorts of maladies.
So our railroad laborers waded into the Peace River and were
suddenly transported in imagination back home. "Zolfo" they
exclaimed, and it would be "Zolfo" ever after.
But it wasn't zolfic brimstone that would prpve to be the
region's philosopher stone. Rather, another element: phosphorus
(Greek "phos" as in "light" plus "plhorus" as in "bearing."
"Lucifer" in Latin). As in, phosphate.
You know the story of Capt. LeBaron traveling down the
Peace River (five years before the railroad) on a surveying expedi-
tion. Somewhere just south of Little Charlie Creek, the good cap-
-tain noticed fossil-rich sandbars and phosphate pebbles. 1881,
almost 10 years before George Washington Scott, head of a fertil-
izer company in Atlanta, would make something of those pebbles.
Meanwhile, LeBaron shipped about four barrels of fossil
bones up to the Smithsonian Institute (having lost the others when
two of his boats tipped over). "Send us more!" the Smithsonian
wrote.
No more: other orders were to be followed. Soon, the useful-
ness of the Luciferian pebbles was scientifically established, the
bones were forgotten and a new "gold" rush was on!
By then, our "Birds of Passage" had returned to their home-
land pioneers they, whereas most of those who followed brought
their families with them, settled down, adding new dimensions to
the American Dream, notably in the eating department, where a
culinary invention, the tomato pie, would soon rival the traditional
apple one, and be sold in "huts" all over the world!
Peace River Explorations is a nlon-profit citizens' organization cre-
ated to promote and grow a "clean industry" in Hardee 'County.,
tourism. It markets the county's historical and natural assets,
including fossil hunting, canoeing,' kayaking, fishing, horseback
riding and more. Volunteers will be needed to man lhe visitor s cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Waiuchlla Train Depot.

Soccer Boys District


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They're among the top 16
teams in the state.
It's been long years since
Hardee High claimed a soccer
district championship, and it
was good.
The Wildcats played three
hard District 10 games to win
the district title and earn the
right to host the District 9 run-
ner-up Clearwater Central
Catholic Marauders on Tuesday
night of this week. The Mar-
auders came in with an 8-7-5
record, beating and tying
Berkeley Prep during the sea-
son, but losing 3-0 in the
District 9 title game.
A win Tuesday would place
he 'Cats in the Class 2A
regional semifinals at 7 p.m.
tomorrow (Friday) against the
winner of the Frostproof
Bulldogs/Berkeley Preparatory
Bucaneers clash which was also
on Tuesday evening.
HARDEE 6, AVON PARK 0
The Wildcats opened District
10 playoffs held at Frostproof
last week. The first Wildcat
game on Monday of last week,
Jan. 23, featured third-seed
Hardee against sixth-ranked
Avon Park. "Hardee's offense
played with confidence and
took 33 shots on goal. Our
defense only allowed nine shots
on goal," reported Wildcat
Head Coach Dennis Aubry.
"We played strong the whole
game with good intensity," he


Feb. 2 Boys Basketball


concluded, noting that junior
Oscar Palacios scored twice and
juniors Amando Alvarez, Mark
Gomez and Miguel Garcia and
sophomore Ernesto Ramos
chipped in with a goal apiece.
HARDEE 4, MULBERRY 2
The Wildcats had lost twice
to Mulberry during the season,
both games by 1-0 scores.
Mulberry scored in the first five
minutes, but the 'Cats weren't
going to let another opportunity
to pass them by.
Hardee scored three times
before the half-time break, at
the 12-minute, 9-minute and 3-
minute marks. Mulberry picked
up another score early in the
second half, but Gomez put a
penalty shot in the goal for
Hardee later in the game.
"Hardee played hard but
clean. Mulberry moved the ball
well. Hardee sophomore goal-
keeper Ruben Velasquez had a
good game. The Hardee offense
was attacking well with 23
shots on goal to Mulberry's 11
shots," said Aubry. Alvarez and
Ramos added other Hardee
goals.
HARDEE3,
FROSTPROOF 2
So, the district championship
game came down to Thursday
night between the Wildcats and
the Frostproof Bulldogs. Har-
dee split games with Frostproof
during the season, losing 5-1
early in December in Frost-
proof, and coming back to win
1-0 at home on Jan. 5.

"Hardee started the game
very fast and strong, but could-
n't get the ball in; 15 minutes
into the game Frostproof made
a goal, changing the tempo. The
'Cats had a goal called back
that didn't cross the plain.
"Mark Gomez made a goal
after the first water break,
whidh helped some, but Frost-
proof answered back again just
before the half," described
Aubry.
Seven minutes into the sec-
ond half, Hardee tied the game
on a score by Oscar Palacios.
Regulation ended in a 2-2 tie.
A "Golden Goal" format was
used to break the tie, with a 10-
minute period, which would
end as soon as one team scored.
As home team, Frostproof
had first crack to take the ball
out. Hardee serior wingman
Leonardo 'DeLeora hard-
pressed the ball and forced a
turnover.
"Oscar Gomez took over pos-
session of the ball and passed it
up-field into an open space
where DeLeora took it farther
along and into the corer, mak-
ing a perfect cross pass to wait-
ing forward Miguel Garcia fin-
ished it with a header for the
game-winning goal.
"All this occurred in 18 sec-
onds in overtime. Our boys
were very excited and jubilant
since Hardee hadn't won a dis-
trict championship in soccer
since 2004," summed up Aubry.

A lovely Christian mother was
rubbing lotion on her face, and her
little girl said, "Now I know how to
be beautiful."
How?" asked the mother.
"By rubbing beauty ,ition all
over." she answered.
No. it's not lotion on the outside
that makes one truly beautiful. It's
the Lord on the inside.
When you yield yourself to the
Lord within, others Will see His
loveliness without,
Instead of an, expression that
reveals anger, there'll be affection.
Instead of eyes that radiate
sourness, there'll be sweetness.
Instead of a face that reflects
hopelessness, there'll be hopefil-
ness.
Let's pray with the Psalmist,
'Let the beauty of the Lord our God
be upon us.

February 2,2012, The Herald-Advocate 5B


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
With three .more games under
their belt, the Hardee Wildcats
have only two more to finish
the season.
The 'Cats lost a heart-breaker
at Auburndale, downed Avon
Park at home and were decimat-
ed by the Lake Wales Highlan-
ders, who chose to run up the
score to improved their national
ratings.
This week, the varsity Wild-
cats hosted Lakeland in a 7 p.m.
game on Tuesday and finished
the season at home tonight
(Thursday) with a visit from the
Port Charlotte Pirates
Last week began with a trip
to district rival Auburndale. It
was a close encounter all the
way. Auburndale was up 19-18i
at the end of the first period, but
Hardee took a 37-28 halftime
advantage. The 'Cat held on to
lead 51-50 at the end of the
third stanza, but were outscored
17-14 in the final eight minutes
to lost 67-65.
Elmo Stephens again topped
Auburndale with 19 points,
while Rashad Jones had 18.
For Hardee, Keshun Rivers
led all players %ith 25 points
and Jajuan "JJ." Hooks added
17. Andrew '"Dru" Hooks had
10. Ke\on Brown a half dozen,
Aloonzo "Kane" Casso four
and Steve Metayer with three.
Keyon Brown hit the boards
for nine rebounds, while Rivers
and Christian Moralez had six
apiece, Dru Hooks five and
Casso and J.J. Hooks four each.
The Thursday game was a
visit from fourth-year Coach
Luther Clemons and the Avon
Park Red Devils, who started
out strong, taking a 6-0 advan-
tage in the first two minutes of
the game. Hardee hit the boards
on a Rivers long shot, with re-
bounding by Dru Hooks, then
Brown for Hardee's first points
of the game. Tyrone Perry sank
a deuce and Rivers fed J.J.
Hooks for a trey and it was an
8-5 game.
Shortly, Rivers drove the key
and dished to Moralez to make
it 8-7. When J.J. Hooks stole
the ball and threw long to
Casso, Hardee led 9-8. By the
end of the "long" first period

Hardee led 18-16.
The teams traded a deuce and
trey to start.the second session.
By midway through the period,
Avon Park had a 27-25 lead.
The squads swapped leads and
Avon Park was up 35-32 on a
Reggie Baker three-spot just
before the half.
J.J. Hooks notched a trey to
open the third period with
another tie, 35-35. Each time
Avon Park got a point or so
ahead, Hardee would score. At
the end of the third, Dru Hooks
threw up a shot from beyond
the half-court line and banked it
in for three points and cut the
Red Devil lead to 55-54.
Rivers rebounded an Avon
Park shot to give Hardee at 56-
55 lead as the final period
began. It was knotted or tied
five times over the next four
minutes-. Finally, Moralez hit
both ends of a one-and-one to'
put Hardee up to stay. Rivers
notched a trey, J.J. Hooks hit
both ends of a one-and-one.
In the last minute, the Red
Devils had to foul to get the
ball, but Riers was hitting the
hoops on free throws` and took
Hardee to the final 80-70 score.
The teams met at' center court
for group prayers.
"Our guards handled the
pressure better in the second
half. Keyon, Steve and Chris-
tian played their roles real well,
with rebounding and hustle.
When Steve and Kane came in,
there wasn't any dropoff. We'll
get Lucious Everett out on
Monday and that will only help
us," said Hardee head coach
Vance Dickey
Senior Baker had 27 points
for Avon Park, with junior Mar-
cus Dewberry adding 24 points.
For the 'Cats, Rivers had 25
points, including 21 in the
fourth period, with 7-of-8 at the
free throw line. J.J. Hooks fin-
ished with 19, Keyon Brown
13, Dru Hooks 11, Moralez six,
Metayer four and Casso two
points. Hardee hit 20-of-24 free
throws.
Defensively, Moralez snared
12 rebounds; Keyon Brown
nine and Dru Hooks, eight. The
Hooks brothers each had three
.assists and three steals.
The Friday night game at


ae'

y a
tyi


...... E .... 0LJ . ... L- ...... ........


"home against Lake Wales was a
showboat affair for sixth-year
Highlander coach Billy Wash-
ington, whose 18-3 team was
more concerned with a wide
scoring differential in hopes of
getting back in the top 50 in the
ESPN national rankings, a feat
apparently judged by the mar-
gin of victory of opponents. The
coach kept telling his players to
watch the scoreboard, as they
pressed and forced turnovers to
add to their lead.
Hardee started out well, or
Lake Wales was playing with
the Wildcats. Hardee took a 10-
4 lead by the 4-minute mark of
the first period, but by the 2-
minute mark it was 12-12.
Hardee finished the first quarter
up 17-14 and continued to lead
until midway through the sec-
ond when Brown and Dru
Hooks were benched with three
fouls apiece. By halftime, Lake
Wales led 37-28.
Officiating also turned ugly
during the second half. The
Highlanders ended up getting
41 free throws, while Hardee
had,nearly half that at 24. There
were 21 fouls called on Hardee
in the second half to 14 on Lake
Wales. Each team had eight in
the first half.
Before the game ended,
Rivers and Dru Hooks each had
five fouls, Keyon Brown and
J.J.,Hooks each four, Moralez,
Casso and Luke Palmer each
three and Bobby Brown one.
Lake Wales kept fresh bodies
in the game from its 10-man
roster of seniors and juniors.
With the coach's urging, the
Highlanders scored at will and
ran up the score to the final 82-
52.
Senior Marcel White led his
team with 19 points, while
J'Quayven Williams had 12 and
Antwan Hadley 11 points.
For the Wildcats, Rivers had
another good night with 27
points, followed by J.J. Hooks
with nine, Keyon Brown with,
eight, Dru Hooks with four, and
Moralez and Casso two each.
Brown had 13 rebounds in his
limited time on the court. Also
grabbing rebounds were Rivers,
Casso, Moralez, Palmer, Met-
ayer; Casso J.J. Hooks, and Dru
Hooks.

Why, God?

Many people wonder why God permits all of the troubles in this
world and the greater ones to come. Every disaster testifies against
the false claim of the Devil the disobedience to God is gain and
obedience to him is better (Genesis 3:4,5). God is Love (1st John
4:8) and His government is based on Love. If sin and those who
committed it were immediately destroyed, every unfailen Angel and.
other worlds watching, would serve the Creator out of dread or fear.
Sin and its nature must have sufficient time to fully develop so that
all may see the horribleness of transgression (1st John 3:4). It's not
possible to know just what a flower will look like until it's fully blos-
somed. Knowing what's near and that everyone is free to choose
what they will, the time is coming when sin and those who choose
to hold on to it, will be no more. Jesus Christ our Maker and Savior
says come to Him and He will give life without end with no more
pain, suffering, and sorrow (John 3:16; Revelation 21:4).

This picture shows the entrance to the store, with its sign
announcing "Cinco de Mayo Tienda Mexicana." Two col-
orful murals grace the building's sides. The parking lot is
paved and can hold about 12 cars.
NEW LOCATION Change can be a difficult thing for
many people to go through, but sometimes change is a good thing.
For instance, changing locations can actually boost business
for a retailer, or give a store a fresh start. That's why Cinco de
Mayo decided to move to a bigger and better location.
Owner Pedro Granada officially opened Cinco de Mayo in
2000, and it was located in the same place, 3321 U.S. 17 S. in Zolfo
Springs, up until this past December. It was then that Granada
decided to make a change and relocated his store.
To prepare for the opening at the new location, Granada had
two murals painted on the sides of the building. They are similar in
that they both contain the name of the store on a scenic back-
ground.
The shop is similar to a mini grocery store with the various
types of food, candy and drinks you would typically find in
Mexico. Cinco de Mayo also sells boots, hats, cellphones, cell-
phone cards and Mexican music and movies.
At the store you can also transfer money to other countries
through Sigue and Intermex.
The new store is open Monday through Sunday from 10 a.m.
to 9 p.m. It is located at 520 SR 66 E., and its phone number is 735-


This is the office of Candace Sylvia Preston RA. in down-
town Wauchula, next to where the Old Pine Candle &
Gifts used to be.
ANOTHER RELOCATION Local lawyer Candace Sylvia
Preston has been practicing family and criminal law since October
of 1993.
For three years, Preston was sharing an office with Burton &
Burton P.A. In September of 2011, she relocated to another spot in
Wauchula where she now has her own space.
According to Preston's website, prestonlawwauchula.com, her
practice "provides clients throughout Hardee County with knowl-
edgeable, professional and cost-effective criminal defense and
family law solutions."
Preston's practice can be found at 315 W. Main St. in
Wauchula. Her hours are Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to noon. She can be reached
at 773-5658.
Preston is dedicated to "serving real people with real prob-
lems."

their little sweeties beat them

Dowayne Parks; third place,
ITom Hoskins.
After the judging, there were
60 people sampling the beans
and cornbread, plus many other
dishes and desserts. At the grill
were Ed Souligne and Don
Philips.
BINGO
Jan. 19 saw Stan Sommers
winning the 50/50. Wait a
minute! He also \\on the jack-
pot. Now, how did that happen?
Five merchant certificates were
given to various other players.
Jan. 24 saw 25 people play-
ing bingo. The jackpot was split
between Sylvia Nicklow and
Jennie Kellerman. Delores

POKENO
On Monday, Jan. 23, we had
five players. Audrey Semler
bagged a few pennies and Eddie
Philips filled both her bowls.
Wednesday, Jan. 25, there
were seven playing pokeno. As
I interrupted them, they grace-
fully stopped to chat awhile but
were anxious to get back to
playing, so.I exited.
Shirley Hyde bagged the
most, but Jeff Riggs and Janelle
Reid also came out ahead.
SUFFLEBOARD
Friday, we had eight players:
Ray Moore, Ed and Pat Moore,
Ann Day, Glenn BalTett, Nancy
Pennie, and Dave and me.
Our new player, Ed Moore,
was rolling his puck right into
that 10 spot, and it served him.
well. Ed was the champion for
the week. Now, that Ray Moore
was just a-struttin' around the
court and saying, "That's my
boy!"
Tuesday, saw another new
player, Dowayne Parks, who
said he had never played before.
What? He managed to beat all
of us and was the champ for the
day. Good going, Dowayne!
CRAFTS
I saw Susan Fry doing her
bonnets. They are so cute. Jan
Parks was trying to do a
potholder, and she succeeded.
Cathy Gaylord was busy with
her circles for a quilt she is
making for her granddaughter's
upcoming marriage. You might
have to have some volunteers
give you a hand, Cathy.
SUNDAY SERVICE
The Rev. Dr. Trent Swanson

Lovely 50 acre ranch with a custom 3/2.5 pool home and two large equipment barns.
This is a corner parcel with 1000 feet of paved county road frontage. There are two
ponds with a flowing stream, an oak hammock and the land is fenced and crossed
fenced. Great for hunter's too because deer and other wild life are spotted here
everyday. Did we mention the brand new designer kitchen just completed in Octo-
ber? The roof was just inspected and good for at least 5 more years, a new skylight
was added to the master bath. A unique find that suits all aspects of country life.
Come take a look you will not be disappointed as this is a tremendous value.
