Mosaic, Environmentalists Settle Lawsuit

By MICHAEL KELLY Peace River, the Sierra Club al 130 acres of land by avoiding ty in a permanent conservation Peace River as part of the "This settlement provic


Of The Herald-Advocate
The Mosaic Co. announced a
settlement has been reached
with three environmental
groups that sued the company
and the Army Corps of
Engineers, and it will allow
mining operations to resume at
the South Fort Meade mine.
Mosaic, People Protecting


and Manasota 88 will file a
joint motion with Judge Henry
Lee Adams and the U.S.
District Court in Jacksonville to
dismiss the case in the coming
days.
The settlement is subject to
the court's approval.
In the settlement, Mosaic has
agreed not to mine an addition-


seven bayheads on the 10,856-
acre site and increasing set-
backs from the Peace River and
other streams on the property.
Mosaic also recently bought
the 4,414-acre Peaceful Horse
Ranch along the Peace River
and Horse Creek in Desoto
County for approximately $10
million, and will put the proper-


easement and then donate the
property to the state of Florida
or a non-profit agency to man-
age as a public park as part of
this settlement.
Mosaic will also enter into a
long-term water-monitoring
program and make additional
efforts to obtain permanent con-
servation easements along the


agreement.
"Mosaic is pleased to have
reached a reasonable agreement
to end the litigation that has
loomed over the employees at
South Fort Meade mine for
more than a year and a half,"
said Rich Mack, Mosaic's exec-
utive vice president and general
counsel.


des


certainty around our South Fort
Meade mine, and we look for-
ward to bringing it back to full
production," Mack added.
Any financial charges in-
curred as a result of the settle-
ment are not expected to be
material, according to a Mosaic
press release.

County Fair Crowns Royalty


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
SPoses, smiles, and yells of
support are exactly how the
71st annual Hardee County Fair
began on Saturday.
On that day, the very antici-
pated pageant week began!
Taking home the title of Miss
Hardee County was Taylor
Bolin. Then on Monday, Chey-
enne Pohl took the crown as
Junior Miss.
Hardee County's youngest
still wait for their moments,
since the Lil' Miss Pageant is
tomorrow (Friday) and the
Prince and, Princess Pageant
will be Saturday. Kindergarten
Princess was named Sunday,


but pictures and information
will be in next week's issue.
This yeair's'theme for all the
pageants is "Motown." Starting
off the pageant on Saturday was
emcee Jessica Newman pre-
senting previous pageant win-
ners and the three judges: Lynn
Clark, Scott Gurr from Sara-
sota, and Tenchy Salas from
Palm Beach Gardens. The two
tabulators were Misty Hughes
and Jhmie Samuels.
Thus judges based their deci-
sions on poise, personality,
sense of humor and the ability
to carry bn a conversation when
interviewed. They were also
being judged on their overall
appearance in swimsuit, casual
wear and evening gown.

After the casual wear compe-
tition Jakarius Lindsey was
welcomed onto the stage to pay
a special tribute to the late
Whitney Houston.
Then contestants went on to
the evening gown portion,
answer a final question, and
then 2011 Miss Hardee County
Kara Norris did her final walk
before the new winners were
named.

Rumors of the closing of
Hardee Correctional Institution
are rong.
Warden David Lawrence
commented on Tuesday. "It's
not happening. There's nothing
to it. We are at capacity, a little
over 2,000 inmates," said
La\% rence in response to ques-
tions about the facility closing.
The possible closing was
mentioned at last Thursday
night's meeting of the Hardee
County Cummission -when a
change on the roof pitch of
mobile homes was discussed at
length
"The reason we are doing this
is because HCI is closing and
people need to move their trail-
ers into the community. Many
of them are new trailers, but
the\ don't meet the 3-12 pitch
the code presently -rquires,"
said several participants.
"We've beat up on citizens
enough. Some of these mobile
homes are only two or' three
years old, manufactured in
2011, or even 2012, and we are
penalizing them by our code,"
said Commissioner Grady
Johnson in seeking a 2-12 or
2.5-12 pitch. He suggested it be
2.5 x12 and anything less be
heard on a case by case basis.

Of The Herald-Advocate
A long-range plan to handle
Hardee County waste is still up
in the air.
Rick Fishman, president of
Waste Generated Products, is
still working on a plan to
process waste into useable
products and energy.
Possible sites could include
one near the intersection of SR
64 and CR 663 (Ona-Fort
Green Road) and another just
north of the Vandolah Power'
Plant on CR 663. There are
none in the immediate Fort
Green area.
In a recent memo, Fishman
said he is working to resolve
any financial concerns in estab-
lishing the plants here without
any financial liability or risk to
the county, its communities or
its citizens.
While the initial agreement
appeared to possibly indebt the
county for $40 million, it also
included a responsibility for
Waste Generated Products to
come up with a bond, cash or
equivalent to covet that $40
million and relieve the county
of possible commitment.


That motion was eventually
adopted.
Yet, Lawrence says there is
no plan to close HCI. "Any staff
changes are the normal change-
over, nothing unusual," he com-
mented.
A state Department of Cor-
rections (DOC) inquiry con-
firmed this and said HCI was
scheduled for consolidation,
taking additional inmates from
other facilities whenever a bed
becomes available.
Recent legislation proposing
privatization of prisons-may be
responsible for some of the
rumors. That legislation was not
approved.
A Jan. 12 press release from
the DOC said seven prisons and
four work/forestry camps
would be closed by July 1 as
part of a statewide consolida-
tion plan because of a decline in
prison admissions and excess
bed space.
"No inmates will be, released
early as a result of this'decision,
and there will remain adequate
bed space to accommodate pro-
jected prison admissions, which
have steadily decreased since
fiscal year 2007-08," said the
release.
Prisons listed as closing
include Broward, Demilly,

"Waste Generated Products is
committed to a great number of
things, not the least of which is
helping to make every commu-
nity better through the use of
the proprietary technologies we
would employ in each of our
manufacturing facilities," said
Fishman.
He said there were two issues
to be resolved. "The first is
funding the project with no
financial liability ... concerning
this project. The second is being
able to receive waste streams
from outside the county to pro-
vide feedstock for the green
recycling and product produc-
tion of the facilities."
He said his company "is
aware of the concerns and val-
ues the community involve-
ment, knowing some people
will em-brace new and innova-
tive technologies while others
would just as soon remain with
the status quo or even go out of
their way to stop the implemen-
tation of these new and innova-
tive methods."
Fishman said although Waste
Generated Products "is commit-
ted to Hardee County and a

February is Black History Month. Florida Gov. Rick Scott pro-
claimed African-American pioneers who advanced- science and
technology included:
Otis Boykin, inventor of the control unit for the artificial heart
pacemaker.
Frederick McKinley Jones, inventor of mobile refrigeration
units used for long-haul transportation of perishable goods,
Sarah E. Goode, the first black female to receive a United States
patent.
They inspired creativity and innovation for future IgeneL'altion


of African-American inventors, scientist and engineers, said the
governor, who praised black citizens' achievements and contribu-
tions to Florida's cultural diversity, social equality, and the econo-
my.
American historian Carter G. Woodson started the original cel-
ebration of black history month on, Feb. 12, 1926. In 1976 the
annual week-long celebration was extended to a month.

Chris Cotton, son of Wendell. and Areca Cotton of rural
Wauchula, was scheduled to have his home featured on the HGTV
show "Interiors, Inc." last Saturday evening, but due to a last
minute scheduling change another home was shown. Chris' home
will now be featured this Saturday, February 25, at 9:30 p.m. on
HGTV's "Interiors, Inc.".

The Range Cattle Station south of Ona is in its 70th year and
has 2,800 acres', '700 cows, 50 bulls and 17 employees. The
University of Florida center does extensive research on forages,
soils, agronomy and pasture weed control.
Income includes grants, donations, state funding, sale of about
500 calves, and an archery-only hunting lease. Sales of calves pay
for over half of the center's annual operating costs.
Buzzards are a problem during calving. The most popular for-
ages are the bahia grasses. Dr. John Arthington became center
director in 2005 following'Dr. Findlay Pate.-There is another UF
cattle research center in Mariana in north Florida.

'Edgar Davis said from 1948 to 2009 the share of U.S. house-
hold income spent on food has declined from 22.3 percent to 9.5
percent.'
The three primary ingredients of fertilizer are phosphorus,
nitrogen, and potassium. Most nitrogen is made from natural gas
which forms ammonia. Phosphorus is expensive and comes from
phosphate. Potash is mined in Canada. Davis said Morroco, Saudi
Arabia and Africa have large reserves of phosphate.
Henry.Kuhlman, a concerned citizen who lives in Fort Green
and flies jumbo cargo jets for a living, hates the Waste Generated
Products proposal that would turn garbage into fuel and other prod-
u.cts such as pipe. The project calls for the county co-signing a $40
million loan and promising 150 or 200 jobs and using all of
Hardee's Garbage: The county would also provide the land. WGP
promises no pollution whatsoever and that Hardee would not be
liable for the loan in case the project failed. The current 'county
landfill could be carried to the plant near the railroad in western
Hardee in truckloads and be converted to fuel and products, leav-
ing behind only clean fill dirt.
Kuhlman said this idea and other waste projects should not be
considered for western Hardee. He thinks theNo. 1 criteria eco-
nomic development director Bill Lambert should consider is would
Lambert's neighbors'object if the project was placed at Torrey
Oaks Golf Course or at the Hardee Commerce Park. Kuhlman
urges careful research on environmental impacts and companies
before offering free money and land for projects.'
Lambert is concerned about the future of Hardee County in the,
post-mining era and'believes agriculture, especially citrus, faces
and uncertain future. He believes land after mining is not as good
for agriculture'. He believes the county's current population, loca-
tion and demographics pose challenges for vibrant growth and easy
creation of a thousand great new jobs.
Lambert believes one day converting garbage to useful and
needed products will be reality. It is a question of when and how
technology evolves. With WGP's proposed project, Lambert felt it
needed to go to tohe County Commission for a look.
Kuhlman feels $12 an hour jobs sortin.e Larbate on conveyor


lines would not be desirable and would compete for agriculture
workers picking cops. He believes the plants would wind up
importing large amounts of garbage from other counties. He said
WGP is a newly formed company with no track record of success.
Kuhlman thinks these proposed garbage conversion jobs and other
waste projects are the opposite of what Hardee should be seeking
under the $115,000 Hardee visioning and sustaining study being
conducted by Kimley-Horn. He faults Kimley-Horn for their
involvement inthe WGP presentation to the County Commission.
Kuhlman feels these are industries no one else wants.
Kuhlman said the visioningg results and Mosaic agreement put
tourism, agriculture and high tech low impact jobs at the top. Mr.
Lambert will scare away eco-tourism and the high paying jobs my
grandchildren need. Clean industries will not come to a garbage
county."
Kuhlman believes Lambert in his current job is the most pow-
erful person jn Hardee County. He says the IDA and EDA board
members are prevented by the Florida Government in the Sunshine
Law from interacting outside of meetings and away from the eco-
nomic development director. "Why can't I be on the EDC or IDA?"
asks Kuhlman.
Nancy Craft in November 2011 was booted from the
Economic Development Council by an 11-2 vote for sending an
inappropriate email she meant as a joke.
Kuhlman is also critical of other economic development proj-
ects including the Dewey Terrell land purchase to expand the
Commerce Park, Rapid Systems, buybacks of two Commerce Park
buildings, and a new sp c building.
"Why not offer fre land and taxbreaks to GE, GM, 3M, Intel,
Google, Ford, HP, AT&T, Citigroup, CVS, Coca Cola, Proctor and
Gamble, Pfizer, Target, Apple, Boeing, Aetna, Amazon,
Caterpillar, United Technologies, Johnson & Johnson, etc.? Why
not aim higher up the tree? Would you rather your kids worked for
a garbage processor or.Intel (like my son)? The economic develop-
ment process is broke. I know how to fix it."
County elected leaders need to act responsibly, committee
members should be players and not spectators, said Kuhlman, say-
ing a couple of people should not "call the shots and impose their
prejudices on the 28,000 people that live here." He suggests the
economic development boards be "reorganized and de-homoge-
nized ."..
Kuhlman said he plans to create a website for the "real people
of Bone Valley," offering anonymity, what you're getting for your
'public money and asking difficult questions. He said the name will.
be FriendsOfHardeeCounty.com.
In the meantime there are quite a few people working to help
grow Hardee County's economy and there will be critics and not all
decisions and outcomes will be perfect.
.Many other counties in Florida and the U.S. are also seeking
the same thing. There is a lot of competition in attracting and cre-
ating great new jobs. The state prison west of Fort Green turned out
to be a good economic development project yet was controversial
in the planning stages.
Bill Lambert, who has been on the School Board and County
Commission and owns a golf course, knows you cannot please
everybody all the time. To do nothing toward economic develop-
ment is not an option and would be going backwards, he feels. He
wants a stronger Hardee economic future after mining ends.
He, the economic board members, and the county commis-
sioners want your ideas for a bright future for our younger genera-
tion. They want many of today's youngsters to have good job
options to stay in Hardee County.

Bowling Green Police Chief
John Scheel said the woman,
who is eight months' pregnant,
but not with Ventura's child,
alleged that Ventura threw her
against a wall on Monday night
of last week and slapped her in
the face on Tuesday morning.
Police photographed holes in
the wall allegedly made by the
violence, Scheel said.
Ventura, he said, was placed
under arrest.
The former chief has refused
to give a statement to police,
Scheel added.

That will reduce employees
by 1,293, and send 6,255 in-
mates to other facilities. Cost
savings for this fiscal year
would be $210.281 but by next
year, it will be over $2.5 million
annually.
Since that press release,
Jefferson County CI has been
removed from the closing list.
"Declining prison admissions
has led to a surplus of prison
beds, allowing us to pare down
our budget shortfall by consoli-
dating and closing our older,
less efficient facilities. We are
committed to placing as many
affected staff as possible in
vacant positions for which they
are qualified," said DOC Sec-
retary Ken Tucker.
Inmates will be relocated to
institutions with vacancies that
meet their custody, profile,
health, education and risk as-
sessment needs, concluded the
press release.

desire to locate our facilities
there," the company "has many
other communities interested in
taking advantage of our waste
to power, fuels and products
technologies,
"The leadership of Hardee
County has requested we ac-
complish the first task (remov-
ing county liability). This is
solely what we are focused on
for Hardee County. If, for what-
ever reason, we cannot accom-
plish the first task, then we
would not locate a facility with-
in the county. Should we ac-
complish both one and two on
the list, and after all due dili-
gence is completed, we would
be excited to extol Hardee
County as our partner in mak-
ing the world we all live in a
better place," concluded Fish-
man.
In his initial presentation last
October, Fishman showed how
his company would construct a
pair of pollution-neutral, self-
enclosed facilities which would
employ 150 to 200 good-local
jobs. There would be a PIM
(Powder Impression Molding)
plant to make all manner of
products such as pipes, radiant
flooring, siding, roofing, carbon
black, scrap steels, truck beds,
chassis and frames, and parts
for vehicles..
The remainder would be con-
verted .u :~ s,:,.-d pnlni into
fuel, both die:el, and high
octane gas, and electricity.
Some could be used to operate
the two plants, some would be
available to the county at prices
lower than it now pays for fuel
and some would be added to
electric grids locally and

"This is a victory for every-
one in Florida who values pro-
tecting the Peace River and
increasing Florida's State Park
System," the Sierra Club said in
a press release. "We are pleased
to be able to come to an agree-
ment with Mosaic on these mat-
ters."
Dennis Mader, executive
director of People Protecting
Peace River, said he feels the
environmental groups did a
huge service to Hardee County
by securing wetlands and con-
servation lands around Peace
River.
"Up to this point, this indus-
try has experienced no resist-
ance from our local govern-
ment," Mader said. "Histori-
cally, there has been no mean-
ingful dialog regarding the per-
manent negative impacts of
phosphate mining."
Mader said he is still very
much concerned by the fact that
125,000 acres of land are slated
to be strip-mined in Hardee
County.
The South Fort Meade Mine
is one of the most efficient and
cost effective mines in the
world, according to Mosaic,
and historically accounts for
nearly 20 percent of the U.S.
phosphate rock production,
The mine employees 220
people and is expected to oper-
ate for about 10 years.
"We're hopeful this agree-
ment provides the foundation to
continue our constructive dia-
log with these interested stake-
holders as we look to the
future," Mack said.
The Peaceful Horse Ranch is
on the state's list of priority
projects for its Florida Forever


nationally.
Both plants would have no
smokestacks in the environ-
mental atmosphere, with no
adverse effects on ground,
water or air. The company is not
asking for a tax abatement and
would pay taxes on its plants
and improvements.
Garbage, solid waste, haz-
ardous materials, old tires and
construction materials would all
be dumped in a hopper, where it
would be sorted, pulverized and
sent by conveyor to the appro-
priate portion of the operation.
There, it would be composed
into superior, cost-effective
products used by automobile
and airplane manufacturing.
Beginning with the daily
garbage at Hardee County
Landfill, the company will
eventually process the backlog
of garbage stacked at the land-
fill, clean the dirt and return it
to the landfill, making it a
worthwhile, clean site for use or
sale, and eliminating the long-
term clean-up and monitoring
costs of a closed portion of
landfill.
The landfill processes about
16,000 tons of garbage per year
for which residents pay the
annual assessments for collec-
tion and disposal. The collec-
tion cost would-remain, but the
disposal fees and assessments
could eventually be eliminated.
The county is presently consid-
ering an increase in assessments
and fees to meet increasing
costs of operating the landfill.
The county is already begin-
ning evaluations for the permit
application to open a new site
by 2013 or 2014.





From 1A
land conservation program, and
Mosaic will provide $2 million
for startup and recurring
expenses to operate the park.
"It's especially encouraging
that this settlement includes a
significant public benefit by
conserving the Peaceful Horse
ranch property," Mack sdid.
Mining was first halted in
July of 2010 when Judge
Adams issued a preliminary
injunction alleging the Army
Corps of Engineers issued a
permit for the mine extension in
violation of the National
Environmental Policy Act and
the Clean Water Act.
In November of 2010, a set-
tlement was reached between
Mosaic and the environmental
groups that allowed 200 acres
of uplands on the site to be
mined. Those reserves let the
mine operate for a few months,
but then it was forced to shut
down again after Adams issued
another preliminary injunction
in July of 2011.
Mosaic has avoided layoffs
by moving employees to other
mines and digging some poorer
quality reserves in Polk County
that might have otherwise not
been mined.
Two draglines are currently
sitting idle in Hardee County
since the injunction was issued,
and could be up and running as
soon as the courts dismiss the
case, which should be in the
coming days or weeks.
Two additional draglines will
cross County Line Road into
northern Hardee County to
begin digging after finishing the
remaining reserves in Polk
County.

Museum Matters
Marlene Rickels Hyde
Cracker Trail Museum Curator


FOR THE LOVE OF OLD BOOKS ...
To me, there is something special about books, especially real-
ly old books.
With the electronic age in which we now live, I admit I'm a bit
of a dinosaur. I'm old-fashioned when it comes to some of the new
electronic gadgets. I do not want to read my books from an elec-
tronic device, at least not while I still have a choice in the matter.
I want to hold a real book in myv hands. I want to feel the paper as
I turn the pages. I might dog-ear the page. or make a notation in the
book about something to remember.
I enjoy seeing books lined up on bookshelves waiting for
someone to open them to see what their words have to say. I enjoy
spending hours in bookstores browsing the history section or
checking out the latest biograph.
Yes, I have ordered a few books online, so 1 am well-versed in
the use of the latest technology. But I still want the actual book in
my hands!
Having such a love of history, I especially enjoy finding real-
ly old books, from the 1800s or early 1900s, ones with covers worn
and faded with pages long since yellowed from age.
Each of those old books has a story associated with it besides
what is written on its pages. Perhaps they have been boxed up and
hidden away in someone's attic for decades. Perhaps they traveled
across the country during pioneer times. Perhaps they accompanied
a young soldier as he went off to war in a distant land.
I think about the time period in which the book was written
and reminisce about what was happening in the world at that time.
I try to imagine what the writer of that book was trying to convey
to the reader.
To enjoy the feel of a really old book is like sitting down with
an old friend; someone who has been through a lot but is still there,
waiting for you to communicate with her again.
Charles Eliot said, "Books are the quietest and most constant
friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and
the most patient of teachers."
We have a nice collection of old books here at the Cracker
Trail Museum, including old Hardee High School yearbooks dating
back to 1955. Perhaps you feel as I do about old books and have
some that you haven't room for anymore. Whether it's your.grand-
mother's old cookbook, your dad's book on gardening and agricul-
ture, or an old schoolbook perhaps you'll consider donating them
to the Cracker Trail Museum for others tolook at and enjoy remi-
niscing about "the old'dlys:"
As Paul Sweeney noted, "You know you've read a good book
when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you've lost a
friend."
Old books are like old friends: to be remembered and cher-
ished for years.

proceedings and If said MoiNes V,.
Torres wishes such representa-
tion but is unable to afford It, he

Fire Rescue Chief Says Farewell.


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
At the end of the regular
commission meeting last week.
Fire-Rescue Chief Michael
Choate said his goodbyes.
"How do I summarize 21
years? said Choate at the close
of the last meeting- he would
attend. He has resigned effec-
tive Feb. 29 to take a position as
Deputy Chief of Strategic
Services with the Polk County
Fire-Rescue Department.
"I'm reluctant, but excited.
The county has been good to
me. I want to thank my family
and staff. They are competent
people and will get the job
done." Choate commented. His
wife and four sons were pres-
ent.
Commission Chairman Min-
or Bryant asked if Choate had
to move to Polk County for the-
job. Choate said he would com-
mute. Commissioner Sue Birge
said she appreciated his work.
"There is no one more passion-
ate about his job." Commis-
sioner Rick Knight agreed. "He
has given back to the communi-
ty in so many ways. He's been a
volunteer coach for years (15
years confirmed Choate).
Commissioner Dale Johnson
said after all that was said, there
wasn't much he could add, but
he wanted to honor him, which
led to a standing ovation from
the commission and entire audi-
ence.
Before his final farewell',
Choate had some business to
attend to. First was purchase of
a used 2001 International 4700
ambulance for $22,100, minus
the $7,819 insurance paid for
the chassis. The $14,281 would
come out of the department.
budget.
The purchase is necessary
because an ambulance at the
Bowling Green station was in
an accident and is beyond
repair. The department has been
borrowing one from Polk
County under the interlocal
agreement, but would like it
returned to their service.
Another Fire-Rescue issue
was application .for a state
Department of Health grant of
$187,032.35 for 'purchase of
five Lifepaks number 15s and


their accessories. The 13-year-
old ones the department use
every day have to be patched
and parts for them are no longer
attainable.
"They protect the lives of our
citizens. They save lives." said
Deputy Fire-Chief Bob Clay-
ton. who handles equipment
and grant applications.
Birge commented. "If they're
coming for me. I want them to
have the right equipment."
After discussion of how the
matching S18.775 would be
paid. the application was ap-'
proved. Choate said he usually
returns part of his funds to the
county each summer and felt
sure that it would be enough to
pay the matching cost.
The third issue was a new job
description for Emergency
Management Services. Choate.
as Public Safety Director said it
was not a financial change, just
clarifying the job functions to
be more accurate according to
what happens. They will adver-
tise and fill the position.
Choate also mentioned that
he has appointed Jill Newman
as the new emergency manage-
ment director as she has the
experience from long years in
that department and will be able
quickly to complete the neces-
sary certifications.
After Choate made his final
statement and left the-room
with his family, firefighter
Robert Cole asked to speak. He
said his wife's life was saved
Sunday by Fire-Rescue staff
and while at the hospital with
her, he was reacquainted with
Dr. Piggman, who was formerly
the department's medical di-
rector.
SPiggman went off to deploy-
ment in Iraq in January 2008
and returned late last Novem-
ber. In the interim another med-
ical director was chosen. Cole
wanted to know why the second
medical director wasn't termi-
nated and Piggman restored to
his job. He should get priority
as a veteran, said Commission-
er Grady Johnson, who prom-
ised to look into it.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved a proclamation
of Feb. 28 as World Spay Day


as requested by Teresa Carver
who is director of the landfill
and animal control center there.
The proclamation asks local
residents to observe the day by'
having their own pet spayed or
neutered or provide that for an
animal in the shelter awaiting
adoption.
-re-appointed Jan McKib-
ben. Diana Youmans. Kathy
Gregg and Kay Crews to the
Library Advisory Board for
two-year terms.
-appointed John Deer to the
Planning & Zoning Board to
complete the term of Monica
Reas.
'-approved a S70.152 work
order for Kimley Horn & As-
sociates for engineering servic-
es for the Moffitt Road widen-
ing and resurfacing project
approved for SCRAP (Small
County Road Assistance Pro-
gram) funding.
A member of the audience
objected to the way an engi-
neering firm is chosen, saying it
should be bided each time it is
needed.
Ken Wheeler. county engi-
neer/public works director.
explained that the process of
request for proposals occurs
about every five to six years.
About four years ago. the coun-
ty short-listed to four firms,
which are awarded contracts on
a rotating basis, considering
their areas of expertise, such as
roads or wastewater. AIM En-
gineering, Hunter Engineering.
Chastain-Skillman and Kimley-
Horn have all worked on differ-
ent county projects.
-approval renewal of an
interlocal agreement with
Wauchula to continue permit-
ting and inspection services at
usual rates.
-approved a six-month ex-
tension for Easton Sales &
Rentals to complete its Site
Development Plan application
due to a changeover of staff.
-received the first Quarter
Financial Report for this fiscal
year from Janice Williamson,
director of budget and finance,
who cautioned the commission
on its spending of contingency
funding because of possible
increased Medicaid spending,


juvenile justice funding. a pos-'.
sible state plan to turn,,health
departments, over to counties.
unknown landfill costs and
other unforeseen expenses.
-approved the Ibidk of The i
Herald-Advocate of 29 cents
per line for the printing of the
2011 Delinquent Tax rolls and
heard a resi, complain that
the newspaper contacts local
officials for responses to letters
to the editor. which should be
published without. those com-
ments.
-approved a change to the
minimum pitch for single-fami-
Iv mobile home dwellings in R-
2. R-3. F-R and A-I zoning
areas. After much discussion it
was decided to allow pitch
2.5x12 or higher and anything
else would be handled on a
case-by-case basis.
-heard an update on the
Charlotte Harbor National
Estuary Program by its director
Lisa Beever. who requested a
commissioner be assigned to
the board. Commission Chair-
man Minor Bryant appointed.
Commissioner Grady Johnson.
who is originally from the
Charlotte. Lee and southern
counties area.
Johnson said he was familiar
with the estuary from his con-
tacts on Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission and Fisheries in ,the
1980s and said his pet peeve
was citrus. farmers, mining and
other uses being blamed for.
estuary pollution, while there
was no recognition of the over-
fertilizing of yards and other
pollution coming .,from the
coastal, urban communities.
Beever said she had been
reporting mostly on Hardee
County, but agreed that urban
landscaping and other urban
loadings had a higher coliform
and other pollution readings
than rural counties. Hardee
County has the fewest impair-
ments of the seven-county area,
she said.
-approved a resolution urg-
ing local retailers to stop the
sale and marketing of candy-
flavored tobacco, whose bright
colors are attractive to children
who can get hooked on tobacco
at an early age.

ers and' ranchers to produce safe. abundant and health-sustaining
foods. Their hard work and dedication provide the basic material
for the quality of life we enjoy in our state.
Farm Bureau leadership groups will make food donations to
various charities, including food banks and Ronald McDonald
houses. These donations reflect our ties to our communities and a
desire to make agriculture's abundance available to citizens in
need.
Household Budget Like most other households, farm fami-
lies must live within a budget. We understand the necessity of plan-
ning for balanced meals. Like other families, we know that when
shopping for food, we must stick to a grocery list, read food labels
and buy only items that will be eaten. We must also compare the
cost when choosing foods, and must avoid visiting the grocery
store when we are hungry.
Balanced Diet'-- Plan balanced meals using the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's MyPlate food guidelines. Detailed
information is available online at choosemyplate.gov. This set of
guidelines has replaced the older food pyramid.
A health-boosting diet includes varieties of fruits, vegetables,
low-fat or fat-free dairy products, lean meats, beans, eggs and nuts
in quantities for daily calorie needs.
The agency recommends that half of your plate should consist
of fruits and vegetables; half of all grains should be whole grains.
The USDA has reported that the prices of unprepared fresh
fruits and vegetables such. as carrots, bananas, tomatoes, broccoli,
Red Delicious apples' and Iceberg lettuce have remained stable
compared to deNseti and nack foods.
According tohe USDA, farmers and ranchers receive 19 cents
out of every dollar spent on food. Off-farm costs of processing,
packaging, wholesaling and retailing account for 81 cents. In 1980
the farm producer received 31 cents of every dollar spent on food.
The cost to farmers to produce their products has gone up dramat-
ically since then.
Best Practices Farmers and ranchers':recognize that superi-
or animal welfare practices result in high-quality safe and whole-
some meat, poultry, milk and eggs..They are constantly seeking
ways to reduce costs:.and.improve the comfort and well-being of
animals.
Food Costs According to USDA researchers, in 2009 con-
sumers in the U.S.,spent less that 10 percent of the average house-
hold disposable income on food each year. Households in more
than 40 nations studied devoted more than 20 percent. The figure
for 24 nations was 30 percent or more.
Recent increases in retail grocery store prices are the result of
higher costs to process, haul and refrigerate food. Local farmers'
markets often have fresh vegetables, fruits, meats and other items
that have been produced in the surrounding area near your home.
The USDA recommends that once you bring fresh produce
home, you should use perforated bags for refrigerated storage.
They reduce condensation.and shriveling.

Letter To The Editor

Economic Development

Needs Careful Study


Dear Editor:
Mr. (Bill) Lambert makes
things clear in his rebuttal to
Henry Kuhlman (Feb. 9). He
has big dreams of turning a
sow's ear into a silk purse (one
proposal by WGP would turn
garbage into fuel and other
products).
Several supporters ride
Lambert's train. The county
commissioners are spending
money researching WGP and
other proposed projects. WGP
wants Hardee County's signa-
ture and credit to apply for a
$40 million loan. Some of the
early research by economic
development is kept private to a
certain point.
Some officials or economic
board members put emphasis
on handling applicants with kid
gloves for fear of them running
off to greener pastures.
Competition to attract these
applicants is so strong that suf-
ficient time is not spent on
looking at their qualifications.
as in WGP's case.
Mr. Lambert says many
applicants come to his office
regarding garbage and other
projects. People flood in with
hands out for free money.
Kimley-Horn is promoting
WGP while at the same time
working for the county in a
visioning process. Would they
end up with another contract if
the WGP plan is approved?
Hardee's easy-come easy-go
spending needs revamping.
Taxes could be lowered. Some
officials have an upside-down
Robin Hood syndrome. IDA
takes the blue ribbon in spend-
ing. The county commission
shares authority and responsi-
bility in economic develop-
ment.
I see little return on invest-
ment (ROI) included in the
audit. Without ROI it is hard for
any business to survive and in
turn create or keep jobs.
Politicians like to hang their hat
on jobs. How many local jobs
has Rapid Systems created with

Knight, Johnson On All-Tourney Team


Week Ending: February 19, 2012
Weather Summary: Temperatures and rain levels varied in
the State. In central and northeast Florida, the Florida Automated
Weather Network (FAWN) stations recorded nightly temperatures
as low as 17 to 20 degrees. Some frost was reported in Lee,
Charlotte, and Glades counties. In the Panhandle, FAWN stations
recorded good amounts of rain from Jackson (5.50 in.), Santa Rosa
(4.48 in.), Jefferson (3.72 in), Franklin (2.38 in.), and Gadsden
(2.28 in.) counties. The remainder of the FAWN stations recorded
less than an inch of rain, with over half recording a tenth of an inch
to no rainfall. Some farmers and extension agents in Alachua,
Marion. Highlands counties reported very dry conditions and were
in need of rain. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 57 percent
of the State experienced severe to exceptional drought, higher than
last week's 53 percent. The most exceptional drought conditions
were in Jackson, Calhoun, Gadsden, Leon, and parts of Jefferson
County. Average temperatures ranged one degree below to three
degrees above normal.
Field' Crops: Farmers were preparing fields in the north for
the spring. In Flagler County, some damage was reported in potato
fields due to cold. Temperatures were in the low twenties for sev-
eral hours during the night of February 12-13. Sugarcane harvest
was winding down.

Fruits & Vegetables: Producers were irrigating fields con-
stantly due to drought conditions. In Lee County, strawberry fields
were being irrigated. Also, in the same county, minimal frost dam-
age was reported in strawberry fields. Overall, in central Florida,
cool overnight temperatures have delayed harvesting and crop
maturity for strawberries. In Flagler County, frost damage was
reported in cabbage fields. In St. Lucie County, dry and windy con-
ditions persisted and tested young vegetable plants. Harvesting of
winter vegetables was ongoing in Miami-Dade County. AMS mar-
ket movement included snap beans, cabbage, celery, sweet corn,
eggplant, endive, escarole, bell peppers, radishes, squash, straw-
berries, and tomatoes.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition
decreased slightly, with the condition lower in the central and
southwest due to drought, and improved in the Panhandle and north
following rain. The cattle condition ranged from very poor to
excellent with most in fair to good condition. Hay and supplements
were being fed. In the Panhandle, most pastures were fair to good.
Winter forages in Jackson County were starting to be grazed. Cold
temperatures early in the week slowed pasture growth, but the rain-
fall and warmer temperatures should boost pastures dramatically
this week. In Santa Rosa County, pastures were making slow
recovery from the earlier drought problems. Stocks of hay were
getting low. Rain over the weekend in Washington County provid-
ed much needed soil moisture for cool season forages. In the north-
ern areas, most pastures were in very poor to fair condition, still
impacting forage growth. Most cattle were in fair condition. In the
central areas, the pasture conditions ranged from very poor to good,
with most poor to fair. Most forage in Polk County was seasonally
limited with hardly any growth though some small grain forage
was lush. The cattle in the area were in fair to good condition. In
the southwestern areas, most pastures continued in poor to fair con-
dition. Grass was not growing because it was stunted by past frosts
arid hampered by drought conditions. The condition of the cattle
was poor to fair with most in fair condition.

Citrus: Temperatures were moderate with highs reaching the
low 80s in most of the citrus region. Rainfall was light across the
region. Duvei received the most with 0.67 inch and 10 sites

should finish this week, and two more next week. Two plants were
running Valencia, but most will start within the next week or so.
Teliple., tangerines, and grapefruit harvesting volumes were
increasing and the tangelo and Navels were decreasing. Heavy and
widespread citrus bloom was observed on trees in southern Hendry
County, signaling the natural start of next season's crop. Cultural
practices included irrigation, young tree care, and limited lhedging
and topping.

on an error and Johnson
walked. Michael singled down,
the line and Carter Lambert also
singled. The first four batters
scored to narrow the deficit to
5-4.
Holding Lake Gibson score-
less in the home half of the
sixth, Hardee went back to
.work in the top of the seventh,
and final inning. With two
away, Hardee sent 10 more bat-
ters to the plate. Knight drew a
walk, Terrell was safe on an
error and Johnson, Palmer and
Royal all walked.
Lambert singled to left field
and Hewett was safe on an
error. Deonte Evans was safe on

order in the bottom pf the' se':
enth, Hardee had won 12-$.


ALL SAINTS 7, HARDEE 6
The most exciting Hardee
game of the tournament was
Thursday's clash with All
Saints Academy. Johnson
opened on the mound and was
followed by Palmer and
Spencer.
Hardee took the early lead,
putting a pair of runs on the
board in the home half of the
first inning. Evans drew a walk
and Knight singled to center
field. Terrell walked but left at
third. It was 2-0.
Mikey Retana crossed home
plate with another Wildcat tally
in the second inning. He walked
and went to third on an error on
a Royal hit. A Lambert sacrifice
brought Retana home to make it
3-0.
A double for All Saints went
for naught in the top of the
third. In the bottom of the third,
Knight walked and scored on an
error on a Terrell hit and a sin-
gle by Johnson. Terrell, John-
son and Crawford were on base
when the inning ended.
All Saints stormed back with
three runs on six hits in the top
of the fourth, narrowing the
Wildcat lead to 4-3. Hardee
went down in order.
A Wildcat double play 4-U to
4-3 eliminated an All Saints
threat in the top of the fifth.
Knight was safe on an error and
scored on a Johnson double to
left field to make it 5-3.
A single left one runner
stranded in the top of the sixth,
while Lambert got aboard on an
error and was stranded in the
bottom of the sixth.
Sn,.the top of the seventh, All
Saints plated four runs on four
walks and a pair of doubles to
take a 7-5 advantage.
Hardee tried to rally in its last
at-bat in the home half of the
seventh. Knight doubled to left
field and scored his fourth run
of the game, but no other
Wildcats could make it to home
plate and Hardee lost 7-6.
"Our pitching was better this
week. We're hitting better bpi
we saw some really good pitch-
ing against us this week. Our,
defense is still working out
what will be best for us.," said
Rewis.
"The kids are working hard.
We've used the last two weeks
to give everyone some time and
help us in determining the bat-
ting order and defense," Rewis,
concluded.

They Took Corn To A Mill To Get Grits, Meal


By LACEY McCLENITHAN
Special To The Herald-Advocate
My interview was with my nana,
Ruth Redding. She was born in
Charleston, S.C., on June 1, 1943.
She had 13 siblings and she was the
14th. There were four boys and 10 girls
living in a four-bedroom house with
outdoor toi-
let. The girls
of her age I I I
would wear
dresses
.everywhere and the boys would wear
blue jeans-and button-down shirts. The
boys also had to have their shirt tucked
in with a belt around their waist.
She had many chores, of which I
will name. She cooked breakfast on a
wood stove at 5 years old and up. After
school, she had to carry water in a five-
gallon bucket from a canal to the field
where they grew fruits and vegetables.
She had to carry food buckets to feed
the hogs, horses, pigs, cows, chickens
and goats. She also had to help butcher
the cows and pigs for their meat prod-
ucts, as well as chickens.
SShe had to shuck and shell the corn
to take to the mill to be ground into
grits and corn meal. Her biggest harvest
was the corn. They used it to feed all
their animals, as well as them as a fam-
ily. When they took it to the mill, they
would have given half of our grits and
corn meal to the mill production for
grinding it all up for our family.
She said, "I would have much rather
have grown up in your generation
because there is electricity, air-condi-
tioning, and computers. I had harder
work to do when I was in my youth
after school than most of the people in
your generation."
When she was a teen of my age, her
transportation to and from school was
she had to walk the first five years of
school, and then in the sixth grade, she
began to ride the school bus. Her first


COURTESY PHOTO
Ruth Redding
school was a country schoolhouse; it
held 1-6 grades, with two rooms, an
outdoor toilet and one teacher. She had
to walk home for lunch every single
day.
From sixth to half of her seventh-
grade year, she attended Walterboro
Elementary School. That school sud-
denly shut down, and for the rest of her
seventh-grade year she went to
Walterboro Junior High School. She
then moved and went to the junior high
school in Charleston, S.C., for her
eighth-grade year.
She then moved to Florida in 1957
and attended Hardee High School for
grades 9-12. The high school was a
two-story building with no air-condi-
tioning. She then proceeded to graduate
from Hardee High in 1961.
The grade levels.she had to complete
in order to move up to the next school
was sixth grade, which was considered
the end of elementary; eighth grade,
which was considered the end of junior
high; and 12th grade was the end of her
high-school career.


The educational structure of the
school was different from today's soci-
ety because there were no computers,
and to graduate you had to complete
four years of English, one year of
world history, four years of literature,
one year of civics, a driver's education
course, home economics, four years of
science, and two years of physical edu-
cation. She was not required to com-
plete a standardized test, like we do
today. She just had to take exams and
regular tests that each teacher gave.
From her point of view, she thought
that education has made a positive
impact from back then on today's soci-
ety. The impact encouraged society to
better the things for the future of our
youth in educational purposes.
As being a substitute for 10 years,
and observing the environment around
her, she said, "The behaviors of stu-
dents have changed from when I was a
student myself." When she was in
school, her behavior had to be of the
best standards or they got a paddling by
the principal, and the school had the
right to punish the child without par-
ent's permission.
If they didn't pay attention to their
teachers, she would come by and pop
their hands with a yardstick. They also
couldn't chew gum, or there would be a
demerit given. Today's 'society, you
have to have parent permission in order
to punish the students, and the students
themselves are a whole lot less disci-
plined.
Over the past 40 years, she has had
12 different jobs. Her first job was
picking vegetables for the store at
Seven-Mile Point in Wauchula. After
that she was a bookkeeper for a used
car lot and then she became a waitress
at Knight's Restaurant. She had several
waitressing jobs after that, including
"Harris' Restaurant" and "Green's
Midway." She then became a medical
secretary at the state hospital in


Arcadia.
Her next job was an insurance clerk
at Palmetto Medical Clinic and hospi-
tal. After this she became the insurance
clerk/office manager for Dr. Ernest
Palmer. She continued as an insurance
clerk for F.L. Revell Insurance Agency,
where she stayed for 10 years. After
that span she became an insurance clerk
and office manager for Altman
Insurance Agency and then for Wells
Insurance Agency. Her final and still
present job is for the Hardee County
School System as a substitute teacher.
The most important job to her was
working in the medical profession at
Dr. Palmer's office. The type of impact
that she made was by assisting the pub-
lic with their insurance claims to help
collect their bills and payments. The
practice of medicine is different from
way back then until now, because you
could see your doctor anytime, without
scheduling an appointment to wait three
or four weeks. Back then, one doctor
treated you for everything, but now
doctors are specialized in each field of
practice.
At the end of this interview, Ruth
Redding said, "The biggest change in
society that has affected me personally
would be electricity usage. This is
because we had no electric until I was
14 years of age. Before that,I had to
chop wood for a fire under the wash
pot, boil the clothes, and scrub them on
a scrub board in order to wash my fam-
ily's clothes. I received an electric
washing machine the day our family
got electricity!"

Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
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.


City Has
By JOAN SEAiAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula is seeking to dis-
pose of many pallets of tools
and supplies.
At its Feb. 13 meeting, the
Wauchula City Commission
authorized city manager Terry
Atchley to complete inventory
and disposal of thousands of
dollars of "stuff' stored in the
old electric power plant at Bay
Street and U.S. 17 South.
Originally purchased many
years ago 'when a Lakeland
company closed, the supplies
were to be shared between
Bowling Green and Wauchula.
On Feb. 8, city staff with a team
and fork lift had a giant "yard
sale," during which Bowling
Green Mayor Perry Knight and
Wauchula staff removed as
much as Bowling Green could
handle and what Wauchula
could use.
"There's still a lot more.

files. There's pallet upon pallet
of combination wrenches and
all manner of things," com-
mented Atchley.
Commissioner Pattie Detwil-
er suggested a booth at Pioneer
Park Days, where tools could be
sold to many of the exhibition-
ers. Commissioner Russell
Smith suggested to try to liqui-
date some of them by giving to
Zolfo Springs or the county.
After more discussion, Com-
missioner Ken Lambert made a
motion for Atchley to "dispose
of them in a manner deemed
prudent." Commissioner John

CONCERT SATURDAY
The Friends of Highlands Hammock will present the popular
"California Toe Jam Band" in concert this Saturday beginning at 7
p.m.
Always one of our Heartland favorites, California Toe Jam




p. .


plays well-loved oldies. Their family-friendly shows have brought
smiles to countless faces over the last three decades.
California Toe Jam was formed in 1984 by Harry Havery and
Rodney Hollinger. A senior at Sebring High School, Havery put
together a band for Homecoming. Hollinger, the school's guidance
counselor, joined in as did band director Roger Nubern. Other stu-
dents, Jay Grubb, Richie Shepard and Mike McElfresh, rounded
out the band, while a student disc jockey, Sean Szoka, took care of
soundman duties.
"Roger Nubern had a penchant for wearing flip-flops to prac-
tice, and he had, shall we say, unattractive feet," shares Havery.
"Some might even call them offensive." When it came time to
name the band, those feet became the inspiration for the band
name. Since the theme for Homecoming that year was "Back to the
Beach," they added California to the name in reference to songs
they would play from the Beach Boys. Thus the California Toe Jam


Band was born.
The faces have changed over the years, but the founding mem-
bers remain. Currently the band is comprised of Harry Havery on
vocals and guitar; Rodney Hollinger on keys, sax, trumpet, guitar
and vocals; T.J. Kinyon on bass; and Rodney Havery on the drums.
Bil Kovacs serves as the official sound and lights guy.
Until recently, this good-time rock-and-roll band was in retire-
ment mode. On Saturday, they return to Highlands Hammock State
Park for Music in the Park.
Bring your lawn chairs or blankets and a flashlight. Picnic bas-
kets are welcome or plan to enjoy some barbecue from Rollin
Smoke BBQ. Paradise Hotdogs will also be here.
Concert admission is $5 per person, with accompanied chil-
dren 12 or under admitted free of charge. Proceeds benefit park
improvements. The park entrance fee of $6 per vehicle is waived
after 6 on concert nights.

Steve Cantu on Tuesday, Jan. 31, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club at the Panda
Restaurant about bees, honey and bee products. There are up to 40,000 bees in a hive,
and they can produce up to 30 pounds of honey a day. Bees can be killed by pesticides
and stress. Cantu Apiaries and Peace River Products are located at 784 Steve Roberts
Special east of Zolfo Springs. From left are Steve Cantu, Robin Boni, Rev. Randy
Johnson, Reality Ranch horse riding instructor Jessica Heath, and Charles Cannon.
Honey bees help pollinate flowers of citrus, other fruits and vegetables. Florida is
ranked in the nation in production of vegetables. Florida is in the top five states in
honey production. The state averages $11 million in honey sales annually, said Cantu.
Florida has about 285,000 bee hives used for honey and pollination. Other bee prod-
ucts include pollen and royal jelly.

Callie Skipper Ward spoke to the Hardee Rotary Club late last year on CF and the phos-
phate industry. She said the world population is 7 billion people, with close to 1 billion
being hungry. The world population could rise to 9.2 billion by 2050. CF last year
exported 40 percent of its phosphate. Phosphate is important for fertilizer. CF has 185
employees in the area, with 126 in Hardee County. In 2010 CF had 690 employees in
Florida. A dragline weighs 7 million pounds. CF last year in Hardee countyy paid $18
miilfion in property'tax. $i9:22 milihon-in employee wages, and $10.7iillion iQgsever-
ance taxes.--Of the''sdievrahce taxes paid, 16.5 percent goes to the county of origin
where mining occurred and 13 percent goes to Florida counties of rural areas of criti-
cal economic concern which includes Hardee. CF is permitted to mine in Hardee until
2024, recycles 95 percent of its water, and accepts one million gallons a day of treat-
ed wastewater from. the city of Wauchula and Hardee County. CF is applying to mine
for an additional 1Q years. The South Pasture has 16,282 acres, and the South Pasture
Extension has 7,518 acres, south of SR-62 and on both sides of CR-663. There are
3,800 acres in conservation easement. CF started mining here in 1978. The state
required reclamation starting in 1975. The Florida phosphate industry has 67,000 jobs
and a $5.8 billion economic impact for the Port of Tampa. CF began in 1946 as Central

-Theodor Herz


TREES
Palms, about as ancient as you can get in the tree department,
line the Peace River, taking you back in time to when many of the
bones below you were parts of storybook creatures.
If you look hard and are really lucky, you might find a piece
of amber, sap from another ancient tree which dripped down into
the water with its prey, a prehistoric bug, and is now a resinous
time capsule.
For old trees, though, if we' talking longevity, it's hard to
beat the old knock-kneed bald cypress cousin to the West Coast
sequoias thousands of years old.
And then, from the east, came men and their wooden ships.
Masts and planks were cut from tall northern trees, while the bent-
wood parts were carved from the twisted branches of live' oak.
Then the vessels were made watertight with a generous application
of "pine tar."
Boat-building was a big industry in colonial America.
Soon enough, the harvesting and manufacture of "naval
stores" made its way down from the Tar Heel State through
Georgia to the slash pines of Central Florida, and a new economic
force brought life to this area: the production of turpentine.
Gold, frankincense and myrrh: these second two being resins
from Biblical lands, the first being the dream of tappers of trees and
other rainbow chasers. Pine resin, collected then heated up like the
sap of the sugar maples up North, gives off "spirits," the product of
the many stills in the area.
These were legal stills.
Turpentine: labor intensive work, full of human drama. Zora
Neale Hurston writes about it. Much "gold" changed hands.
And then it all faded away, new trees made their appearance.
Imported golden "Chinese apples," some by way of the Middle
East and Spain, where a orangeg" would become, by way of
French, an "orange" sister to those limes on the old ships, pro-
tecting the "tars" and limeyss" from scurvy as they sailed across
the sea.
Peace River Explorations is a non-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 the visitor's cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Wauchula Train Depot.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
S The Hardee girls tennis team
divvied games in the only ten-
nis action last week.
Hardee boys had no sched-
uled meets, and there are none
for either team this week as
s they prepare for the Heartland
Invitational on Friday and
ff Saturday. Next week, both the
S boys and girls host DeSoto on
Monday and play at Okeecho-
bee on Tuesday. The week ends
with both teams going to Avon
Park on Thursday.
The Hardee girls played at
Fort Meade last Monday, win-
ning 5-2. All matches were the
8-0 pro-set matchup.
Senior Summer Palmer start-
ed Hardee off with an 8-1 victo-
ry over her opponent. Class-


0


mate Taylor Pohl struggled but
lost 8-4.
Soph Ashley Baker got
Hardee back on track with an 8-
3 win over her opponent and
classmate Susana Osceguera
went 8-6 over hers. Soph Caro-
line Durrance finished off the
singles matches with an 8-2
win.
The Lady Wildcats split the
doubles matches. Palmer/Baker
won 8-1, while Osceguera/
Durrance lost 8-4.
"It was a decisive victory.
Summer Palmer is playing
strong. The team is working on
its doubles play and getting
ready for the Heartland Invita-
tional next week," commented
Coach Dennis Aubry..
Tuesday's match at Sebring
could be a foreview of the invi-


national and Hardee had a hard
time against the Lady Streaks,
losing 6-1.
Palmer battled in a 6-4, 6-3
loss at number one singles.
Baker lost 6-1, 6-1, Osceguera
lost 6-2, 6-1. At number four
singles, Durrance went the dis-
tance. After losing the first set
6-0, she came back to force
extra play in a 7-6 (7-3) loss in
the second set. Soph Lacey
McClenithan lost at number
five singles 6-2, 6-0.
Palmer and Pohl joined for
doubles and got the only Har-
dee win of the day, 6-1,6-2. Os-
ceguera/Durrance lost 6-2, 6-1.
"Sebring has a very strong
team, all returnees. It was a
good experience for our girls to
face players at a higher level
than them," said Aubry.

Michato G~ Ora


The owner of a plant said, "For
this job I need a responsible man."
"Then I'm your man," said the
applicant. "In all my jobs, when
anything went wrong, I was
responsible."
Care never bothered him. It was
don't care. And half-doing was his
undoing.
But the person who does a little
more work than he's expected to,
and does things a little better than
he's paid to, is the man who's
going to make a success of his job.
The Living Bible says, "Work
hard and with gladness all the
time, as though working for Christ,
doing the will of God with all your
hearts. Remember the Lord will
pay you for each good thing you
do."


Keep on Praying


If goldfish pray, this is the time. If not, let's hope luck
is in their fishbowl, It is said that we all live in a fishbowl.
Access to personal information is as simple as pushing
a button. We read of crime each day; it's not
surprising that we feel vulnerable. Luck is
seldom an effective deterrent. Are we
helpless against evil that is lurking...
waiting to pounce?
Help is only a prayer away
As you worship God at His


House this week, ask Him
to surround you with his
mercy and strengthen you
with His love. You need
not be afraid. Trust God's
will .1111 keep on praying.

Greetings from Fort Green!
I sure hope you have attended
the fair this week and stopped
by the 4-H Foundation booth. I
worked Monday night and it is
always a fun night, even though


tiring. David Spenser will be at
the entertainment tent Saturday
at 3 p.m.
There are lots of friends in
the hospital that we do not even
know about. I stopped in to see


GRILLIN' GREATS!


Fort Green News
By Rilla Cooper

Nancy Driscoll last week and
she was on the way to therapy
as the result of a broken hip.
Some in therapy, that I knew,
were Charles Heath and Juanita
English. They both were taking
therapy and hoping to go home
soon.
I visited with Florence Heath
in the hall, and they had a friend
visiting from England. I
thought this a coincidence since
Mary Lois and Leonard Craw-
ley have friends visiting from
England. Mary Lois has had
this friendship since school
days when students were re-
quired to write letters to "pen
pals" in English class. I won't
say how long, but she was one
of the ones celebrating in the
recent big class reunion. The,


friends are in Spring Hill at the
present, but will be visiting Fort
Green shortly.
Mary Lois and Leonard were
recent visitors to Delray Beach
to celebrate Grandparents Day
at the school twins Patrick and
Caroline attend. They had a
good time but a tiring weekend,
as each plays on a different ball
team and they were busy at-
tending games. But, they would
not have missed it for the
world!
I purchased some orchid cut-
tings from the Methodist Ba-
zaar at Christmas. They are
blooming and have the prettiest
orange blossoms. Julie Dur-
rance was manning this part of
the sale, and said they even
grew as hedges in Miami. I bet


that would be a sight to see!
All of Fort Green is proud of
Mesqua Fields. She .placed
fourth in the Miss Hardee
County competition.
Little Destiny Fields is home
from All Children's Hospital
and the surgery was successful.
She will be under the weather
for some time before she can
return to school. James Wil-
liamson fell at home and missed
church Sunday morning. Mabel
said he is bruised and a little
sore. Pastor Jerry Dunn is in a
nursing home in Lakeland.
Joann, his wife, went for knee
surgery and the doctor sent her
home with plenty of medicine
to get better before he would
perform surgery.
Kim Reas works at The Her-
ald-Advocate and her daughter,
Macey, was in a bad accident.
David Godwin and a friend,
Casey, were riding in his go-
cart and flipped it. David was
only bruised but the friend had
surgery Saturday night on a
broken arm. There are plenty
standing in the need of prayer,
so please pray for these.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Agnes
Grimes. She and her grand-
daughter were at our church at
the beginning of our revival.
She had the bad accident on the
way to the cemetery to place

This month's Friday Night Live event featured more than
good fun for the family. Beginning at 11 a.m., the eighth
annual Grillin' & Chillin' on Main barbecue competition
started, taking the FNL spotlight. But getting to savor var-
ious barbecued foods wasn't the only good result: All the
barbecue teams donated a portion of their proceeds to a
non-profit organization. Along with the good food was
great music by Written in Red and a lot of activities. Spon-
sors for this month's edition of FNL were HardeeCounty
Disposal, CF Industries and The Bull. Judges were there
to decide which teams had the best chicken, brisket and
ribs. First-place ribs and Grand Champion winner was (top
left), CF Industries, which was fundraising for Habitat for
Humanity; first-place chicken was (top right) Mosaic,
fundraising for the Hardee County YMCA; and first-place
brisket was (below) Country Clovers City Smokers,
fundraising for the Country Clovers 4-H.

Arthur Womack called and
advised Maxine's daughter was
visiting from Georgia. They
will have a grand time and since
she is here during fair week, it
will be something different.
'Our county fair and most of the
county fairs in this area are dif-
ferent from what I grew up with
in Georgia.
Our revival preacher was giv-
ing an illustration about the
patriotism right after the bomb-
ing of Pearl Harbor. My daddy
was in World War II. I had twin
cousins who went to Korea.
They asked me to write and
they would answer. I diligently
wrote and mailed my letter,
which cost three cents in the
'50s. No answer,until about six
months later I received a letter.
They advised since I had not
sent the letter airmail for six
cents it took six months to reach
them! Today mail goes to Af-
ghanistan very quickly.
They said when they were
coming home on the troop rain
and the train got down to South
Georgia and they saw that flat
country and longleaf pine" trees,
they would have kissed the
earth if the train had just
stopped. They were that happy
to be back home in the USA!
Please pray for one another
and our nation.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In a close pair of non-district
games, the Hardee girls softball
team lost at home against
Haines City, then won a close
encounter at Palmetto on Friday
night.
The split leaves the Hardee
varsity at 3-1, while the JV won
both its games and is at 4-0.
This week, there was a visit
from Fort Meade on Tuesday
for the lone outing for the week.
Next week, it is on the road for
games at DeSoto on Monday
and Frostproof on Tuesday.
HAINES CITY 5,
HARDEE 2
The Lady Wildcats started
last week with a Tuesday game
vs. Haines City. After leaving
one Lady Hornet on base in the
top of the first, Hardee drew
first blood with a run in the
home half of the first.
Arisa Camel took a walk.
Alex Ullrich struck out and a
Kim Derringer sacrifice
brought Camel home. Derringer
was safe on an error, but was
left on third when the final pair
of outs occurred.
,The Hornets evened the game
in the top of the second on a
Chelsie Valentine double. A
wild pitch on the next batter got
her to third, and a sacrifice
brought her home. It was 1-1.
-Both teams were three up,
three down until the top of the
fourth, when Haines City plated
another run, after the first batter
doubled, Valentine followed it
with an RBI double to left field.
Hardee left Makayla Deu-
berry on the base paths after she
was hit by a pitch in the home
half of the fourth and it went
back to three up, three down,
until the top of the sixth, when
Haines City broke loose for
three more runs. A walk, an
error on 5a sacrifice and two-
RBI single by pitcher Valentin
brought a pair of teammates
home. And she hurried home on
an error and sacrifice. It was 5-


I.
Hardee got its final tally in
the home half of the sixth. With
two away, Derringer was safe
on a fielder's choice and came
around to cross home plate on a
Karlee Henderson RBI single.
"We just ran into some of the
better pitching we've seen. We
were out-of-sync during warm-
ups and we were just not hit-
ting. We will learn from it and
go on," said Head Coach Shari
Knight.
HARDEE 2, PALMETTO 1
Hardee had a spectacular out-
ing at Palmetto on Friday
evening, hanging on for the 2 -1
victory.
Hardee went down in order in
the top of the first and the Lady
Tigers left one runner stranded
when Henderson struck out the
next two batters.
In the top of the second,
Kendall Gough was safe on a
throwing error by the third
sacker 'and raced home on an
Addison Aubry long single.
Palmetto went down one-two-
three.
Hardee added, an insurance
run'in the top of the third .With
,two'away, Ullrich tripled and'
came home on an errant pitch. It
was 2-0.
The game rocked along with
little action until the sixth, when
a pair of Tigers were left on
base. Palmett managed to get
one run in the bottom of the
seventh, and final inning. Auria
Mouts singled and came around
to home plate on an Eva Diaz
double, before Hardee retired
the side to hold on to the 2-1
win.
Henderson recorded seven
strikeouts, while only two
Hardee batters went down on
