~By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Mosaic has broken ground on 1
its luxury resort "Streamsong"
in south Polk County and its
two 18-hole golf courses are
nearing completion and will be
ready for play toward the end of
this year. .
The resort will be six stories


high and have 216 rooms over-
looking a premiere bass fishing
lake known as the "Glory Hole"
and is expected to open in late
2013.
Streamsong sits on 16,000
acres of formerly mined land
bordering Hardee County, and
will offer a full-service spa,
sporting-clays shooting, hiking,


birding, world-class bass fish-
ing, golfing, 18,000 square feet
of conference space, casual and
fine dining restaurants and a
rooftop bar for sunsets and star-
gazing.
Jim Prokopanko, Mosaic's
president and chief executive
officer, said the project will
prove that land can be both


mined and then developed for
tourism in the same area. .
Alfonso Architects out of
Ybor City is doing the design of
the resort, and it will be built to
reflect the natural landscape
and will include a lot of wood,
stone and glass in the construc-
tion. .
Alberto Alfonso said the


project is a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity and one of the most
incredible pieces of property he
has seen. It is believed that
Spanish explorer Hernando
DeSoto and his army camped
on or near the property in 1539.
Construction of the resort
will be done by PCL Construc-
tion Services, which recently


built Legoland Florida. Once
completed, it will be managed
by Interstate Hotels & Resorts.
The golf course will feature a
luxurious clubhouse and 12
gfuest rooms along with a full
service steakhouse and bar. The
two golf courses are being
designed and built by Tom

Week Ending: February 26, 2012 .
Weather Summairy: It was a dr-y week until showers on
February 26 provided improved soil moisture for many fields. Prior
to these showers most of the 36 Florida Automated Weather
Network stations recorded less than a half inch of rainfall for the
week. Five stations recorded between a half inch and one inlch of
rainfall, and four stations recorded one inch or more rainfall.
Windy conditions further contributed to dry soil moisture ratings.
It was a warm week with temperatures averaging four to six
degrees above' normal. Low temperatures ranged mostly in the
mnid-40s and highs reached the mid-to-high 80s.

Field Crops: The warmer weather wits beneficial to the w'in-
ter wheat crop. More rain is needed in the wheat grrowing area in
northern Florida. Producers were making preparations for planting
other field crops.

Fruits &; Vegetables: Producers werre frequently irrigating
fields due to dry conditions. Planting and harvesting continued at a
normal pace for mnost of' the week. In central Florida. some pro-
duers observed a delay in the maturity of the strawberries. Warmer
.temperatu~res helped i mprovee the crop. US DA. Agrlicultural
Marketing Service vegetrable movement inlcluderd snap beans, cub-


tl'ons 19ere; from. thei$.S. Drought Monitor, last updated Feb 21,

oranges. T'he rest of the processing plants were running Valencia.
Temple orange, tangerine, and grapefruit harvesting increased,
while the tangelo and Navel harvest has slowed. Citrus bloom con-
tinued to be observed on trees in the southern portion of the citrus
region as next season's crop progresses. Cultural practices includ-

Livestock and Pasture~s: Statewide, the pasture' condition
decreased from the previous week, with the condition ranging fr~om
ver~y poor -to excellent. Most pastures were in poor to good condi-

Letter To The Editor

Dr. Pig man Should Be

Hardee's Medical Director


SGET PAMPERED Everyone needs to .get pampered once
in a while.
Christal .Cobb, native of Wauchtila, finished cosmetology

reality as she along with husband Cla'y, also native of Wauchula,

ments, keiatih fusionn treatments, extensions', waxing (full body
available), manicures (gel manicures available), and tanning. Cobb
and' Kelly also 'do hair and makeup for events ~such as weddings,
quinceafieras, and other special occasions.
Another great thing abotit Madison is you can rent it for spe-
cial occasions. For instance', if for your wedding day you want to
be pampered and perfected' along with your bridesmaids, then
Madison is the place' to go. It's also available for little girl birthday
parties.
To make Madison even better, Cobb is planning to soon pro-
vide facials and niassagesi

SDr. Piginan was Hardee's
Medical Director arid an Army
Reservist. He was called up in
. the.Rreyrves and sent to the war.
:irr-frq He returned just before
1 Tanksgiving (2011). He e- :
mailed Ch. Choate to tell him
he was back. He later went in
for a meeting with Ch. Choate.
Ch. Choate told him they had a
new- Medical Director, Dr.
White, and he was under con-
tract. They liked Dr. White and
Dr. White wanted to stay.
Dr. Pigoman felt he wasn't
wanted or needed. He had been,
more or less, brushed off. I
asked Dr. Pigman why he didn't
pursue it and he said "listen, I
was just glad to be home and
not worrying about inissles
coming in." Dr. Pigman is -a
humble~ man
What should have happened
is Ch Choate should have- wel-
comed Dr. Pigman home and
asked him when he wanted his
job, back ais Medical Director.
There's a federal law, The
Reservist Act. that says
reservist who are called to war
will have their jobs back when
they. come home. Hardee is a

dnt nedalawv to 1 us o d
the fight thing.;
One thing CJh. Choate failed
to tell Dr. Pigman is that Dr.
White's contract has a 30-day
escape clause. In other words it
cn ibe cancelledthwith 30 day
Another. interesting fact about
the contact is how much we are
.payin~g Dr. White. I asked the
County Commission about this.
Keep in mind that the Medical
Director's job is a part-time job.
Dr. Pigman was paid $6,000 a
year with the opportunity to
earn another $6.000 for doing
certain things. Dr. White is paid
$3 0la 0 pe per month, .

Rmgman, ba humb man.u We
he is also honorable. He told me
he would like ~his job back as
Medical Diretor and he will
coine back at his original
"salary". He said this is not a
job about the income, it is a job

25th Annual Cracker Trail Ride Crosses Hardee


This rider shares her bottle of water with her horse. She said the horse also enjoys drink-
ing beer and Kool-Aid out of the bottle.


PHOTOS BY MICHAEL KELLY
Horses and riders both enjoyed water and a break at Duck Smith's barn on Monday af-
ternoon of last week before making camp at the intersection of Florida Avenue and State
Road 64 in Zolfo Springs..


Leading the group through the gate and onto Dansby Road are trail b~oss Jennifer Ois-
terling, Ken Mcbeod, Duck Smith, Mark Roberts, Jenny Roberts and Tia Bigi.


This Clydesdale horse pulls a wagon and two riders along the 11I0-mile trip from Braden-
ton across the state' to Fort Pierce. The ride is intended to keep the history of the Florida
Cracker cowboy alive, and travels the path those cowmen rode in driving their cattle to
market.


The Hardee County Sheriff's Office briefly closed U.S. 17 so the 207 horses and riders
could safely cross the -road.


Riders of all ages participated in the historic ride across the state that takes place during
the last fulll week in February each year. The event attracted participants from Virginia,
Michigan, Geocrg~ia, Texas, lowa, Ohio, Tennessee, North Carolina, Maine, Alabama and
Florida.


Riders head east along State Road 64 to Steve Roberts Special. The group then crossed
over to State Road 66 to continue the journey eastward, ending with a parade through
the historic section of Fort Pierce on Saturday-

REMEMBER Y'OUR SENIOR CLASS PLA'I?
I hale such wronderful memone~s of being In our senor class
play at Hardee High. The year was 1973 and the production was
"Our Miss Brooks." It was a comedy in three acts written by
Christopher Set el
The interesting thing about the play was that it was a play
about a senior class putting on a school play. Our director was Mrs'
Diane Knight and the stage manager was Suzanne Clavel.
Th e cast consisted of Penny See starring as Miss Brooks, a
well-liked high school English teacher; Harry Crosby as Ted
Wilder, a popular basketball player; Malinda Weed as Jane Drew;
Bruce Shackelford as Hugo Longacre, the athletic coach; Carmen
szlew thMis ePin h, thp sho llibraaian; Thonuts Bell as M s
Audubon, a high-strung music teacher; De'bbie Ballantyne as Mrs.
Allen, the chairman of the school board; and Melanie Clavel as
Rhonda Allen, Mrs. Allen's daughter.
The rest of the cast included the ''students" played by Cathy Jo
Smith, Karen Sellers; Cindy Chapman, Sara Jane Petteway'
.Marlene Rickels, Janie Lee, Malone Steverson, Terry Wells'
Barbara Lee, Charles Anderson and Darrell Walker.
The stage crew .consisted of Carlos Martinez, Harry Crosby'
Wendell Smith, Roger Conley, Clay Maddox and Jerry Revell.
Janis McCorquodale and Cindy Prine managed the makeup; Cathy
Grantham, Debbiie Thomas and Janet Tayntor handled the publici-
ty, Ronnie Albritton was responsible for the tickets; and our pianist
- was P~ammy Jo Melendreras.
We had so much fun during the practices, not to mention the
cast party after the last performance of the play!
My particular character~was "Elsie" and I can still remember
one of my lines, where I had just accidentally broken one of the
expensive vases that Debbie Ballantyne's character, Mrs. Allen,
had loaned the class for their play. I was to walk back out on stage,
after the crash of the vase offstage. was heard, and I was to gulp
before saying my line. spent lots of time practicing gulping so that
everyone in the audience could see it!
By now you may be wondering how I remember all this. I wish
I could say that I have a razor-sharp memory, but I don't. Being
somewhat of a sentimentalist and a "keeper" of things, I still have
some of the memorabilia from the play, to include several pro-
grams, tickets and newspaper articles, which I will be donating to
the museum.
Perhaps you, too, have wonderful memories of being in a sen-
ior: class play and have a few of the tickets, a program or two, or
some pictures that you would like to donate to the Cracker Trail
~Museum. We would be happy to display them and help others
enjoy their own memories.

best showing in the Heartland
Conference Invitational in Se-
bring.
Although they lost in close
final matches against one of the
premier teams of the area, the
Hardee girls accorded them-
selves well. Four of them
brought home ~medals, with a
pair of them getting two apiece.
Summer Palmer, Ashley Baker,
Taylor Pohl and Caroline Dur-
rance won their way to the
championship round in individ-
uals.Baker and Durrance each
got a doubles medal as, well. .


In doubles competition, Pohl
and Palmer lost in the No. I
semi-final round to Sebring's
Kaley Walter and Joy Dong-
lasan. However, in the number
2 doubles, Baker/Durrance won
the semi-finals over Shontonia
Williams and Kathryn Welch
and went on to lose.to Nisha
Patel and Michaela DeVaine in
the finals.
In the No. I singles, Palmer
faced Sebring's Walter and lost
6-1, 6-3. In number 2 singles, it
was Baker, only a soph, losing
6-0, 6-1, to the more experi-
enced Patel. At No. 3 singles, it
was Donglasan winning in
straight sets 6-0, 6-0 over Pohl,
and at No. 5 singles, Durrance
lost to.Morgan Heston 6-0, 6-0.
The only singles match not to


have a Hardee player in the
finals was at No. 4 singles,
where Lake Placid's Claire
LeBlanc went on to the finals
against Lady Streak Kelly
Broen .
Hardee boys did not fare as
well in their Heartland competi-
.tion. Coach Keith Nadaskay
was very proud of them for
their efforts. "We're losing now
6-3-6-4 instead of shutouts 6-0.
We're improving in every
match," Nadaskay said.
He has senior Matt Godwin at
Number one, junior Campbell
Aubry at Number two, soph
Bobby Swindle at Number
'three, soph Zack Neuhofer at
Number four and junior Chris-
seph Fawley at Number 5.


If you're about to retire or change jobs, you may have some

Greetirigs from Fort Green!
In last week's Herald, there
was an article on the Front Page
that said the waste company
.was still looking at Hardee
County in big letters and wheri
reading the text, it said it would
not be in Fort Green! Now, that
is the first really smart observa-
tion I have heard or read about
this proposed plant.
CR 663 Ona-Fort Green
Road where it intersects with
SR 64 would be a better place
for a dump. Ona-Fort Green
Road is a relatively new road
and in good condition.. SR 64
gives a good road for all .the
garbage the trucks would be
bringing into our county. CR
663 North is already in bad
shape, and the portion in anoth-
er county is ~very bumpy and
plenty of railroad crossings.
Of course, I am not against
technology and advancement
but really feel this company
should be checked out and their
existing plants visited. They
indicate 150-200 good jobs and
the article indicated one part of
the con any woud have ho
pers. hop being a sorter is n t
think there could be something
better for Hardee County.
We were on the Duette Road
last week and Mosaic has done
a terrific job of reclaiming the
land visible from the road. .
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Sue
Connor and to the family of Liz
Chamale. Both of these ladies
worked at Hardee Memorial
when I did back in the '70s.
l'm beginning to think anyone I
worked with better make sure
they are -ready to meet their
Maker. Also, sympathy is ex-
tended to the Lee family. When
Sherman got~ his cataract sur- .
gery, either Cecil was getting
his of Hill Blackmon was. We
'Elied wt hbothrf hsehgens
Hill is not in real good health.
I saw Matthew Tomlinson
and he is having leg problems.
Becky Hulsey was using a cane,
because of knee problems. Jim
Sasser is in the hospital in.
Atlanta, but after improvement
he will transfer to Blairsville,

ing treatments, some facing sur-

.Fort Green will have a super

you-would probably rather eat

a love offering will be taken to
benefit John. Please come out

This is a beautiful time of the
year. The yellow trees are unbe-
lievrable. The ones that are the
pr ttiest have no leaves, just a
stark tree covered with yellow
blossoms'. With this March
wind there is yellow carpet
under the tree!
We all brag on our dogs.
Well, Pat Gugle's dog or cat
wins the trophy. Her daughter
went to work and made sure the
TV was off. Pat slept in and
when' she got up, the TV was
on, th~e dog lying on the couch
watching and the cat doing
what cats do, sitting and groom-
ing! To top it all, they had
turned it on to Dish. Now, is-
that smr oor ;laMhnenci
if a dog is on and barks, but as
smart as Rascal is, he can't turn
on the TV!
The Dixie Echoes will be at
Fort Green March 9 at 7 p.m.
Ya'll come!
Please pray for each other
and 'our country.

Lady 'Ci
B~y JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both Hardee High softball
teams meandered past the Fort
Meade Lady Miners in the only
games last week.
The home games ended with
the Lady Wildcats up 6-2 and
the junior Lady 'Cats winning
10-4.
This week, there were back-
to-bac)< games to start the week.
Both Monday games at DeSoto
and Tuesday's at Frostproof are
on the road.
Hardee comes home on
March 6 to begin the district
schedule with a visit from Lake
Wales. The girls go to Auburn-
dale on March 8 and greet
,Palmetto on March 9, before
taking a week away for Spring
Break.
Against Fort Meade last
Tuesday,. Hardee soph Karlee
Henderson allowed one hit in
the top of the first, with a strike-
out, fly-out and ground-out tak-
ing.care of other batters.
Hardee got on the board in
the bottom of the first. With one
away, soph Arissa Camel and
freshman Kim Deuberry each
singled, both scoring on a long
hit by freshman Makayla
Deuberry. She was stranded
,when the final out occurred.


It was one-two-three for Fort
Meade in the second inning.
Hardee left Karina Fernandez
aboard after she had singled up
the middle. The third inning
-was uneventful as well.
Fort Meade got going in the
top of the fourth. Stephanie
Lewis singled up the middle
and scored on a Christie Shiver
sacrifice followed by a Kellyn
Miley hit to center field. It was
2-1. Hardee again was three up,
three down.
An error and consecutive
fielder's choices eliminated
Fort Meade in the top of the
fifth. With'two outs in the home
half of the inning, Hardee came
alive. Alex Ullrich singled to
right field, stole second and
third and scored. Camel
walked, Derringer to a hit up
the middle and Henderson sin-
gled to left field. Deuberry dou-
bled to clear the bases and it
was a 6-1~ game when the dust
settled before the third out.
Fort Meade was able to pick
up another Lewis score in the
top of the sixth, aided by a
Shiver RBI double, making the
final score 6-2. .
The Hardee JV started slow-
ly. The JVs ptit two runs in the
book in the bottom of the first,
when Abigail Vargas walked


and Rachel Coker doubled.
Noemi Navarro was 'a hit bats-
man and hits by Tiffany Flores
and Maria Moralez pushed the
first two runners home and left
the bases jammed.
It was a trio of batters for Fort
Meade in the top of the second,
awhile Hardee addedp a run.
Breanna Godwin singled,
'Vargas drew a walk and Coker
smacked a hit to left field to
score Godwin. It was 3-0.
Fort Meade bounced back in
the top of .the third. A walk,
double, hit, and back-to-back
errors allowed the junior Lady
Miners to put four runs on the
board and take a brief lead 4-3.
-After holding Fort Meade to
three batters in the top of the
fourth, Hardee blew the game
open by sending 13 batters to
the plate in the home half of the
fourth. Godwin opened it with a
hit and advanced on a Vargas
bunt sacrifice. The rest of the
players, Coker, Navarro, Flores,
Anjelica Jackson, Isabel Abel
and Brooke Tyson combined
hits, walks and sacrifice to plate
seven runs and take a com
manding 10-4 advantage, which
turned out to be the final score
of the game.






dragons
Hardee left the bases jammed
in the second inning, two
aboard in the third and one in
the fourth. Evans almost made
it home in the fifth on an error,
but was caught going to the
plate. There was one Wildcat
left on base in the sixth. Hardee
got one run mn the seventh when
Retana got aboard on a fielder's
choice and came home on a
Evans hit. Hardee left three
potential scorers on base,
unable to get them home for the
win.

AVON PARK 8, HARD)EE 0 .
It was an exercise in frustra-
tion for the Wildcats at Avon
Park on Friday night. Seven
runners were stranded. Solid
hits, a double by Royal, and sin-
gles by Hewett, Dawson Craw-
ford and Evans went for naught,
not able to string them together
for scores.
Avon Park got going in the
second inning with one run,
added five in the fourth and the
final pair in the eighth inning as
young pitchers soph Johnson
and freshman Palmer couldn't
keep the Devils off the base
paths.


advantage.
Unperturbed, the Dragons put
a pair of tallies in the book in
the home half of the first on
three hits and an error to make it
7-2. .
Hardee added a score in the
second, when Cody Spencer
doubled to left, went to third on
a Knight sacrifice fly and home
on another by Terrell.
Lake Placid took a took scor-
ing in the third inning and again
in the fourth, a run in each
inning,,cutting the score to 8-4.
Hardee got back in the scor-
ing column with a trio of tallies
in the top of the fifth. Hewett
opened with a single to left cen-
ter and advanced on a Royal
sacrifice. With two down,
Evans fouled off six pitches
before smacking a single.
Spencer walked. A Knight dou-
ble to right center cleared the
bases and made it I1-4. Lake
Placid got one run in the sev.
enth, too little too late in the 11-
5 loss.

FROSTPROOF 4,
H)ARDEE 2
The Bulldog put the first two
runs on the board on a pair of
hits, an error and a sacrifice.
Hardee got one back in the
home half of the first frame.
Knight walked and ran home on
a Terrell double to deep left. It
was 2-1.
Frostproof picked up a pair of
insurance run in the second
inning on a hit batsman, walk
and pair of hits to make it 4-1.

HARDEE 11,
LAKE PLACID 5
The Wildcats began their
scoring in the first inning with

Fort Ogden.
Q: If you could look back on life
what would be your greatest
Sa~ccom~plisjhmtent?

ll here and raising this farm and hav-
ing all of my grandchildren.
Q2: Wlho is someone who influ-
enced your life? Wh4~at were some of

band, Johnny. He is the main player,
the love of my life, and he makes me
feel safe.

ried and who are you married to?
A: We have: been married since May,
20, 1960. I married John K.I Johnson.
Q: What is one of your favorite
memories from high school?
A: The first time your papa asked
me on a date, Oct. J19. It was the foot-
ball game in the fall and' he gave me his
class ring and I wore it around my
neck.
Q: What is your favorite teacher's
name? Why~g were they your favorite?
A: Her name was Mrs. Stewart and
she taught American history. She was
always nice and it was a good subject; I
like it.
Q: What was your first job?
A: I worked for a dime store that
was called McCrory's. You could go
there and buy inexpensive things like.a
Wal-Mart.

Back In Times is the result ofa class
assignmentt given to ninth graders at

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.


A: I was a cheer- : "

Debs, which is a school club. I went to
the lake and did what most teenagers
did. I was involved in the school, and I
always went to football games.
Q: What was the thing to wear
back then?
A: We all wore full skirts with crino-
lines underneath them, which were ;
made of net. A lot of girls would try to'
wear as many as possible. Blouses, sad-
die oxfords which were shoes that you
lace with shoe strings. We wore bobby
socks; they are big, white and thick.
Q: Where did you go to school?
How many people were in your
whole class? What were your classes?
A: I went to DeSoto High School.
There were about 70 people in my
graduating class. The classes I took
were American history, physics, math,
English, physical education, home eco-
nomics, algebra,. geometry, etc.
Q: What sports and activities were
you involved in?
A: I mostly did cheerleading; the
boys mainly dlid sports. I was a part of
Bulldogs Bark, which was the school
newspaper. I did home economics, Sub-
Debs, and we had glee clubs.
Q: What was your first car? D~id
you buy it? How old were you?
A: My first car was a Dodge coupe.
My dad worked at a car business and
he gave it to me when I got out of '
school. It was mi 1959.
Q: What other places have you
lived in besides DeSoto County?

CHURCH NEWS
By Diane Burget
Our worship service on Feb.
19 opened with the congrega-
tion singing "Jesus Is the Way
To My Father's House." Ac-
companiment was by Linda
Gray on the piano. Our choir's
special was "Turn Your Eyes
Upon Jesus," directed by Nancy
Morrison and accompanied by
Linda Gray.
We had an extra special this
morning by a quartet consisting
of David Behymer, Martha
Behymer, Beth Frisbie and
Nancy Morrison singing "In the
Garden." David and Martha
Behymer are the son and
daughter-in-law of Lee Roy and
Wilma Behymer and are visit-
ing our park for a month.
Pastor Bob Winne's message
for us today was based on "The
Sermon on the Mount" found in
Matthew 5-7. A few of the other
Scriptures he referenced were
from.Psalms 14 and 16, Luke
19, John 3, John 10 and I Peter

A couple of thoughts I took
away from the message *were
that we are not saved by our
good works and there is a dif-
ference between a religion and
a relationship with our Lord
Jesus.
The worship service was con-
cluded by singing "God Be with
You until We Meet Again."

government survive, it as the
private sector that "rocks the
cradle" of government in
America and it is this private
sector, and necessary infrastruc-
ture we must continue to focus
on with our efforts mn Hardee
County.
The creation and function of
the EDA places H-ardee County
in a much better position than
most communities to capitalize
on this unfortunate set of
national circumstances. This
money must always be; looked
upon as "seed corn." Its stew-
ardship must be ineasured by
the growth of the tax base and
creation of economic diversity
in the county. Diversity~of--our '
income sources will create a
more stable economy and pro-
vide more opportunity to create
.individual wealth. If we eat our
"seed corn", there will be no
'future crops to harvest. Intense
workloads and high expecta-
tions must be the norm for eco-
nomic development success
with' many citizens wearing
multiple hats seeking a unified
effort for success. The rewards
for many of us will be the satis-
faction of leaving opportunity,
especially for gainful employ-
ment, in the local economy for
future generations.
The settlement of the South
Ft. Meade extension lawsuit
with the Sierra Club and
Mosaic.clarifies our ability to
plan with certainty, a successful
and meaningful future. These
income strearrs are now de-
fined and should exceed $100
million. We must continue to.
develop and implement an effi-
cient and effective strategy to
utilize these income streams mn
tandem with government and
the ptfivate sector. Much is at
stake to make sure we.as a com-
munity stay the course of
intended stewardship, lest we
lose the revenue..
In the face of confusion lies
an alternative to contempt. It is

The real essence of steward-
shiip with the Economic Devel-
opment Authority revenue lies
in diversifying Hardee County's
economy by "setting the stage"
for new and innovative tech-
nologies through the construc-
tion of infrastructure we other-
wise would not have and could
not afford. Expansion of water
and sewer, telecommunications
and data transmission, feasibili-
ty analysis for; macro themes
such as tourism, data centers,
airports and airport infrastruc-
ture, logistics centers, agricul-
tural enhancements and alterna-
tives coupled with direct busi-
ness incentives for job creation
must remain as a primary focus
for the EDA. The Hardee
Commerce Park, expansion of
water and seiver, the broadband
project, the investment in.
"spec" buildings, tourism stud-
ies, feasibility analysis, the new
technology park at the PRECO
building are all pursued, espe-
cially by the Industrial Devel-
opment Authority (IDA) in
direct accordance with t:he l
statute and the local bill.
This task will never be easy,
but we- must make every effort
to complete it with successful
stewardship. While there will
always be those who have dif-
ferences of opinion, allegations
of impropriety and political and
ehlsphd ca siow t odA

support and leadership from the

political contentiousness that
can only be corrected with edu-

velopment Authority (a good
rule of thumb has historically
been albout $1 million dollars/
dragline/year of mining) is
described in 211.3103 (11) (e)
4. It reads as follows:
4. For payment to counties
that have been designated a
rural[ area of critical economic
concern pursuant to s. 288.
0656 in proportion to the nuin-
ber of: tons of phosphore rock
produced fromr a phosphate
mock matrix located within surch
political boundary?, 9.4 prcert.
The department shall distribute
this portion of' the proceeds;
annually based on production
inrformation reported by the
produrcers on the annual returrns
for the taxable ytear. Payments
under this subparagraphr shall
be made to the counties unless
the Legislature by special act
creates a local authority to pm-
mtote antd direct the economic C
dbevelopmntun of: the contyt~. If
such authtoritty evrists, pavitents
shall be made to that autrhorirty.
Hardee County is designed
msa rurral amua of critical ec)-
nonsic concern (RACEC), and
because the legislature created a
"local authority" by "special
act" the "payments (of the sev-
erance ata proceeds). shall be
made to that authority" (Hardee
County Ecoksmnic Develop-
snent Authority).

Dear Publisher,
Please find below a partial
expository response related to
recent articles in your newspa-
per. It relates to recent musings
published in The Herald-Advo-
cate and because Hardee Coun-
ty is subject to the political will
and regulatory authority of the .
State of Florida. As a county it
has always been subordmnate to
the State of Flonida and its re
spective brranches and depart
ments -
The focus of this response as
anticipated to clarify the role of
the Hardee County EcIonomic
Development Authority (it, too,
has clean audits by the way),
including its creation and estab-
lishmeilt in state law. Remem-
ber, it was ultimately created by
the 2004 Legislature, after 3
years of intense lobbying (yes,
Commissioners can lobby) by
the Hardee County Comnlrission
(BOCC), including slanderous
Allegations of notorious impro-
priety, generally misrepresent-
ed, mismnterpreted and misun-
ders'tood, but resulting in a $30
box of chocolates producing
close to $15 inillion today and
o~ier $5 million/Seear indefinite-
ly into the future.
Put simply, a case was made
by the BOCC to return a larger
portion of severab~ce taxes back
to "rural area of economic con-
cern" counties where phosphate
mining occurred. Hardee and
Hamilton. Counties aire the only
two mn that category. Severance
taxes~ are imposed by the state
on each ton of phosphate mined
and it only seemed more logical
and ~more fairly apportioned
that counties, especially Hardee
and Hamilton, should get this
revenue back, especially for
economic development. Ulti-
mately the Legislature agreed
and this fantastic opportunity
was created. We should always
be grateful to Senator Alex-
ander and Representative Trout-
man for producing this legisla-
tion and likewise acknowledge
the input from IMC and Cargill
and CFI! ..
The Eecnonomic Devekc~pment

T~he government opened the
first mints -and began distributing
the coins' in 1792. By the beginning
of t~he 19th century, coins and paper
currency were wide spread and our
monetary system was here to stay. In
1933,.Roosevielt required all banking
institutions to turn in all gold coins.
Once all banks turned in this
gold, the president raised the gold
standard from $20.00 per ounce to
$33.00 per ounce. This was his way
of stimulating the economy during
the great depression. However, gold
coins were never redistributed after
the recall. Not all gold coins were
turned in. -Many folks during that
time didn't completely trust the
government and chose to keep their
gold.
These gold coins are sought after
by collectors today and bring many
times the face value.. Abny gold coins
with the mint marks of CC, D or O
will bring nice premiums. Collectors
at the event will be glad to show you
where to look. Othdr types of coins
will also be purchase including:
foreign coins, Indian head cents, two
cent pieces, half dinies, three cent
pieces and buffalo nickels to name a
fewv.
Collectors warn people against
trying to clean their coins as
significant damage can be done and
the coins value lessened.

Collectors and
Enthusiasts in
L~ake Placid with
$200, 000 to
Purchase Yours!

Got Coin? It might be just the
time to cash in. (This week, starting
Tuesday and ed"ntinuing through
Sunday, the International Collectors
Association, in conjunction with the
Ohio Valley Gold & Silver Refibery,
will be purchasing all types of silver
and gold coins direct from the public-
All types are ~welcome and the event
is free.
Collectors will be on hand to
identify~ and sort your coins. Then the
quality or grade will be determined.
According to collectors I talked with,
the 'better the grade the more they
are worth. With the current silver
and gold markets, prices are up for
older coins too. Any coins minted in
1970 and before in the U.S. are 90%
silver, except nickels and pennies.
The coins worth is determined
by the rarity and the grade. Old silver
dollars are worth a great premium
right now. Even well worn and heavy
circulated ones are bringing good
premiums. Franklin and Kennedy
halves, Washington quarters and
Mercury and Roosevelt dimes are all
worth many times their face value.
While older types like Seated Liberty,
.Standing Liberties, and Barber coins
are worth; even more.
Gold coins are really worth a
lot right* now according to Brian
Eades of the International Collectors
Association. "'This country didn't
start minting coins until 1792," says
Eades. "Before that people would
trade goods using gold dust and
nuggets. Some shop keepers would
take more gold than needed to pay
for' items purchased. There was no
uniform system of making change."
