By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A children's Sunday School
lesson, a walk of faith, one of
the most intense stories of the
Bible.
There are many ways to look
at "The Story of Noah," soon to
be seen in five weekend per-
formances at the Hardee
County Cattlemen's Arena.
The three-hour drama begins
with the Genesis story of
Noah's Ark and ends with the
Second Coming of Jesus Christ
and~ end of time as described in
the last book of the Bible,
Revelation .
Noah's story was created by
Pastor Mike Graham, also
author of the well-known


play, Graham leaned heavily on
Scripture and describes it as the
story "of an ordinary man who
decided to obey God in a world
of evil."
There's a cast of about 200,
= ":s ad om hilr som
some from counties around, to
portray "one of the biggest
events, the most intense in the
Bible," says Graham. He wrote
and rewrote the script. Sons
Ben and Luke, Christian musi-
cians, wrote the original music.
A CD of most of the songs in
the program will be available. A
British lady from Bradenton
will provide the narrative
throughout the performance.
Construction began at the
arenada t so a s th ournty l
teers to create the sets and
scenes for the upcoming per-
formances. Mean ile thieres's

on the characters and events of
Noah's time. "There will be
some violence, no more than in
'The Story of Jesus;' it was an
evil world at that time, so evil
that God would destroy it,"
explains Graham.
S"It's the story of Noah anld his
faiim ily andi their struggle
against all that evil, a powerful
message of faith. Noah gets it
dlone, showing what or~dinar-y
people can do with obedience
andc commritmentt to God," con-
tinues Graham.

Many parents with children

clude a discussion of how to pay
for college-and for good reason.

parents strongly agree that they
had a plan to -pay for all years of
: college before.enrolling., At the

Genesis 6-9 portrays the con-
trast "'The earth was corrupt and
full of violence. .Men's hearts
were evil. all the tirthe BUT
Noah was a righteous man,
blameless among his people
'and found favor ini God's eyess"
God tells Noah: to build an
ark, a huge boat even by today's
standards, 5,600 feet.long,.920
feet wide and.540 feet high. In
the resulting flood, water comes
20 feet ,above .the trees ~and
destroys the known, world.
W \ith tools of iron and bronze,
Noah sets about building the
ark, jeered and discouraged by
the evil people around him.
The Bible makes a similar
portrayal of end times, when
"because of the increase in
Wickedness, the love (of God)
will grow pold." Jesus told the
people of His day, "As it was in
the days of Noah, so it will be
when the Son ~of Man returns.
People were eating and drink-
:ing, marrying and giving in
marriage up to the day Noah
entered the ark."
In II Peter, the last days are

sofrs The dayhe t 11 or
\vill come like a thief in the
night."
Finally, In Revelation, the
fourkhorsemen, our red, white,
out to carry pestilence and dev-
als aitn nlover the worl paen,
to claim His own to live with
Him for all eternity. At the
White Throne judgment, good
and evil will be separated for
ever.
"It's more than a' children's
story about, an eccentric old
mair who~ built a floating zoo.
How tragic that God could, only
'find eight people worthy to
.save. Noah proved that a man'

Sculties, .can overcome the

Grahani, inviting everyone: to

walk of faith,

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
After making the initial
request for reimbursements in
October, Clerk of Court B4.
Hugh Bra7dley now feels the
Industrial Development Author-
ity has fulfilled its obligations
with the state and met his con-
cerns to release $5S32,193 .to the
IDPA.
The money was owed to the
IDA after it partnered with the
Economic Development Al-
thorityl for a spec building in thle
Hardee County Com;merce
Park; it has been built and is
now occupied by Keyplex, an
agricultural chemical company.
At its Feb. 21 meetitig, the
.EDA instructed its attorney,
Ken Evers, to draft a letter to
the clerks requesting an explana-
tion on when he would release
the payment to the ID4A.
Evers explained to the board
he felt the IDA had donle every-
thing the clerk wanted done.
Bradley said all of his con-
cernrs with the IDA have been
eilthr corrected or taken care of
as it is now compliant with the
state and he was now comfort-
able releasing the money.
"I am pleased that we have
this behind us," Bradley said.
Bill Lambert, IDA executive
director said the delay in pay-


ment, while disappointing, has
provided education and insight
into the task before us all.
"The IDA will continue to
move forward carving and forg.
ing economic opportunity for
Hardee County citizens,"
Lambert said,
In other action thie EDA:

Casey Dickson was also
placed on the board to fill the
seat of DIerren Bryn, .
Bryan was serving on the
board representing the chamber
of commerce as its president,
Bryan resigned from the
board so D~ickson, the Chamber
executive director, could: take
his place.
Thle chamber ~fel having the
executve director sit on the
board would add more continti-

her points. Boys tennis is, having its ups and downs with only five
players to compete. Most are new to the sport arid learning every
time they take the court:

Track ~is also having a wild time..Soph Lucious Everett had the
most success in the huge Ram Invitational in Sarasota last wepk,
taking a fourth and a fifth place: There were .30 or so entrants in
many events. Maily of` the fellows and girls took first-p~lace finish-
~es against Desoto earlier last week, ' u

to their team' successes. More about them in an article next week.

In other news, Hardee golfer Kaleb' Saunders used a 7-iron from

My Fear
My luminescent soul shmnes no more
as I loo~k into your eyes.
Darkness consumes all I am,
as inside a part of me dies.
I scream at the ceiling,
toward the heavens above.
There are things that are bad,
but.not as bad as this love.
An emotion now unfamiliar,
like faded memories of my past. .
Tfounded, I fall on my knees,
you've had your wish at last.
Myspirit lay strewn and shattered
.on my cold hard bathroom floor.
The pain had slightly subsided,
then I felt its blade once more.
I lay there in my pieces,
w~ait~ing for the Scythe ofI~eath.
I see y'OU tace in my head,
as I let out a trembling breath.
My tears are so pathetic,
I know ~they won't bring you back.
But cntaforigetthe atr we shed,

'I feel no niore emotion,
Sno more compassion, no more tears.
Then I realize in horror,
I have made my life my fear.

Q: Did you behave in church?

Q: Were you a good kid?
A: I think so. In a family of nine .
children you didn't get a lot of one-on-
one attention except when you misbe-
haved, and the discipline was swift and
sure. I was always shy, and tried not to
bring attention to myself. I do remem-
ber my dad spanking me once for
climbing a tree.
Q: How is life different today than
when you were a kid?
A: How can I begin? We always had
responsibilities ahd never an abundance
of things.
In school you had books and work-
books, and the usual school supplies.
.that children have today. We had good
teachers and we learned. I am thankful
th~it children have so many more educa-
tional helps today.
There were no~ televisions or Disney
Worlds. H-igh tech was when you got
electricity, and didn't have to read by ?
lamplight, and mom could have a


washing machine.
With the inconveniences of that
time, we still found many ways to
eno hlifeo The familydalaws st d n
other. It is wonderful that chilidreti have
all that they do today, but it was easier
and so much less complicated to be a
child then than it is now.
Q: What did you do foi- enjoyment
as a child?
A: I read a lo~t, went to the movies,
and listened to the r~adio. I played with
my brothers and friends, and went
sivimming and ~fishing in thie creeks. I
had a dog, a rabbit, and a chicken for
pets. I always enjoyed church activities,
helping my mother cook, and going to
parties .

There are many age-related
eye diseases -- particularly for
those over the age of 60 and
including macular degenera-
tion, glaucoma and diabetic
retinopathy. Cataracts are a
common age-related disease,
but can be remedied with sur-
gery.
Age-Related Macular De-
tgeneration, or AMD, is the
Leading cause of blindness
among American older adults.
According to the National Eye
Institute, AMD currently affects
1.75 million people in the
United States. With the aging
of society, this is estimated to
grow to three million by 2020.
The risk of developing glau-
coma increases with each
decade after 40 years of age,
rm oe tpf cete sin the Obsto


The number of those with glau-
coma is expected to increase 50
percent to 3.6 million by 2020.^
There are about 10.2 million
people over the age of 40 with
diabetes. It is estimated that 30
percent of Americans with dia-
betes have not yet been diag-
nosed. According to the Na-
tional Eye Institute, of all
known diabetics over 40, 40
percent have some form of dia-
betic retinopathy. Of that 4~0
percent, one out of 12 have a
more advanced, severe vision
threatening retinopathy.
Though the statistics are of
concern, a diagnosis of these
eye-diseases is only the begin-
ning. It does not have to nega-
tively affect a person's quality
of life.

There are many age-related

there are significant gradual

reduced pupil size, dry eyes,
loss of peripheral vision,
decreased color vision, and vit-

The old city of Wiauchula
power plant along Hwy. 17 has
a long history. Now vacant, the
tBuilding once housed genera-
tors ~that, supplied the city with
eleA din to records kept by
retired city clerk< Avis Sasser,
the City Council voted to buy a
power plant in August 1918 and
issue bonds.
The city in 1922 bought a
power generating engirie from
Fairbanks Morse.
Other engine purchases, their
i horsepower, kilowatt capacity
and costs included:
1948, 805 HP, 556 KW,
$80,040.
1951, 1,200 HP, 840 KW,

Sasser, who retired in 1971
after 29 years with the city, said
Wauchula sold the plant in
August 1967 to Florida Power
SCorporation which today is
Progress Energy.
The city entered into a fran-
chise agreement to buy its elec-
tricity from Florida Power
SCorporation. Later the city con-
tracted to buy its power from
'Tampa Electric Company
(TECO), and this past year
switched to Florida Power and
Light Company. The City
resells the electricity.
The old' power plant's
engines operated on ~fuel oil or
diesel fuel.

When Sasser was city clerk
her office did the tax roll,
assessed property, *collected
taxes, issued building permits'
and did building inspections.
Those jobs today are done at the
county~ level.
"I worked until midnight
many times," recalled Sasser,
who set up the retirement plan
for city employees.
For many years Fred Djennis
and Levy Deal ran the city
power plant.
She was married for 49 years
to Tom Sasser, who passed
away nearly eight years ago. He
owned and managed a 'large
orange grove southeast of the
city.
For many years the power
plant was under the supervision
of public works director George
Burris.

engines in the power plant-
railroad came to Wauchula in
1886.
The town was incorporated on
Sept. 29, 1902. The city was
incorporated May 22, 1907.
A new water tank near the
football field was purchased in
1967. Its tank capacity iA
100,000 gallons.
U.S.~ Census figures showed
Wauchula had 2,857 residents
in 1950, 3,383 in 1960 and
3,007 in 1970.
The city issued 65 building
permits in 1954, 38 in 1955, 6

Greetings from Fort Green!
The fair is history for one
more year, but the youth of
Hiardee County are very fortti-
nate. We all are, to live in a
county that is so caring about
the youth,
It is interesting to obsei-ve the
vendors bidding on the animals
at the fair. If you know the.
exhibitor and wher-e their par-
ents work, if you wait patiently,
usually the parent's employer is
the successful bidder.
My granddaughter did -very
well as did all the Fort Green
youth. We appreciate the ven-
dors who are active in our com-
mumity,
Sherman and I worked the 4-
H booth on Monday night and
we had some good help..
George Wilson makes the pret-
tiest banana split you have ever
seen, and he and Mabel Wil-
liamson both make beautiful

Hardee County, which had
been basking in summer-like
temperatures for early a
month, shivered in its boots this
week as March roared in with
high winds and freezing read-
ings. Tuesday high winds, with
repotted gusts up to 40 miles an.
hour, were particularly obnox-
ious. There was one report of a
26-degree low in a grove just
north of Wauchula Wednesday
night and there was scattered
frost in most areas.

served Hardee County for over
six and a half decades is going
out of business. Sam Weiner,


owrier of Weiner's Department
Store, says he expects to close
the doors in mid-April.

Patricia Ann Obregon, 6-, was

.Ourtta ~The Wcoods

,Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission

TALKING' TURKEY
Better start brushing up on your turkey calling, because spring
gobbler season is here. Whether you prefer to use ai mouth call, box
call, slate or any combination, March means it's time: to start talkin"
turkey.
Youth hunters benefited from a rule passed last year by the
Florida Fish &r Wildlife Consei~vation Commission that established
a two-day youth spring turkey hunting season on private property
the weekend prior to the opening of spring turkey season in each
htinting zone. The new Youth Spring T`urkey Hunt wyas suci! a suc-
cess that the FWC expanded the opportunity to 78 of its wildlife
management areas beginning this season.
In Zone A (south of State Road 70) this year, that weekend was
Feb. 25-26. In the rest of the state, that weekend is now, Marchm 10-
11.
Only those under 16 years old are allowried to harvest a turkey
while supervised by an adult. On private land, no license or permit
is required of the youth or supervising adult, unless the adult plans
to help "call-in" the bird or otherwise participate in the ~hunt. In that
case, he will need a hunting license and turkey permit.

sprin ture yu tat rnt, tandif th adul su ervio ioin tou
attempt to call in a bird on any of the 78. WMAs, he also will need
a management area permit in addition to a hunting license and
turkey permit.
But, keep in mind that adults are not allowed to do the shoot-
ing only the kids may harvest a bird.
For safety reasons, the FWC passed another rule last season
that limits the methods of take allowed during .spring turkey hunts
on WMAs. The rule restricts firearms to shotguns and muzzlejoad-
ing shotguns only, using shot no larger than No. 2. All legal bows
and crossbows can also be used, but all rifles, pistols, buckshot and
slugs are prohibited during spring turkey hunts on WMAs-
For us adults, the highly anticipated spring turkey season came
in first in Zone A, and runs to April 8. In zones B, C and D (except
for- H~olmes County), it runs March 17 to April 22. In Holmes
County, the season runs March 17 to April 1.
Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the
daily bag limit is one. The season and possession limit on turkeys
is two, except in Holmes County, where the season limit is one-
Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour before sun-
rise to sunset, but on WMAs, you must quit hunting at 1 p.m.
To participate in spring turkey hunting, you'll need ti Florida
hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plari to pursue a gobbler
on one of Florida's many WMAs, you also must purchase a man-
agement area permit.
All of these licenses and permits are available at county tax
collectors' offices, most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing
supplies, by calling (888) 486-8356 or online at MyFWC.com/-
License.
And if you didn't put in for a special-oppor~tunity or quota per-
mit,- don't worry; several WMAs don't require them. Visit
MyFWC.com/Hunting and under "Turkey," click on "Where to
spring turkey hunt without a quota permit", to see a list of WMAs
where you need only a hunting license, management area permit
and turkey permit to hunt spring turkeys.

days off. Play resumes after the
break with a March 20 visit
from Sebring, a March 22 trip
to Desoto and another the 23ird
to Teneroc with the first district
game of the season.
An error left the leadoff bat-
ter for DeSoto stranded in the
top of the first inning. A pair of
ground-outs and a foul-tip out
kept Hrardee batters at bay.
Winter struck out a pair of
Bulldogs and got the third to
ground out in the top of the sec-
ond. A Wintz Terrell hit to left
field went for naught for the
Wildcats.
Desoto left one aboard mn the
top of the third and all three
Hardee batters went down on
strikes.


The Budldogs picked up their
only run in the fourth frame on
an errot, stplen' base and long
single. 1
That 1-0 edge held until the
home half of the sixth. Harder
had threatened in the fifth,
when Dawson Crawford sin-
gled amdi Kramer Royal were
left on base. but kept at it mn the
home half of the sixth-
Leadoff batter Deonte Evans
drew a walk. With two down,
Terrell was hit by a pitch. When
Luke Palmer sliced one dovin
the right field line. both runners
raced for home. giving Hardee
the 2-1 edge, which held up
when Winter got a strikeout'
fly-out and ground-out in the
top of the seventh to end the
game.


By JOAN SEbAMAN
Of The Herald-Adlvocate
It was ai classic pitching duel.
Each side recorded nine strike-.
outs .

Community & School Awareness oasts Wide Variety Of Events


wecll as elec~tronlic devices and
more. Each student also re-
ceived a dental care package do-
nated by the Hardee County
Health Department's dental di-
vision ,
.The children were so excited
as they opened the boxes and
saw such wonderful gifts. "How
did tl ey knowY this is just what I
wanted?'' asked Erica, a high-
school senior.
Many of them even strugg~led
to hold back tears as they saw
what their Christmas Angels had
given to them.so generously.
I Thl. gift had to come from a
true angel, because I don't kn~ow
anyone that would buy me such
nlice gifts and don't even know
me or ask for anything in re-
turn." said high-schooler Ty. "I
will continue to thank God for
my angels, and I hope that Com-
inunity &i School Awareness
con~tinues such a great pro-
gram ."
The annual Christmas mneal
came from Giovanni's Italian
Restaurant in Wauchula and was
donated by a caring Christmas
Angel. The meal included
chicken lasagna. tradulional
lasagna, salad.with homemade
dressing, garlc bread and
drinks. Students also enjoyed
cookies, chips and Christmas
candy.
The students as well as par-
ents and guests enjoyed games
and mingling. with each other.
The students selected an adult to
participate with~ them in fun and
sociable Chr~istmas games, with
donated door prizes presented to
the winning teams.
The theme for this year s
Christmas Angeel event came
from Hebrews 13:21: "Be not
forgetful to entertain strangers:
for thereby some have enter-
tained angels unawares."
This Bible verse reminds
everyone to be warm "and
friendly to strangers, ats some
may be or could be used as
God's messengers, and teaches
children to be kind and respect-
ful to everyone they meet as that
individual mily be significant to
their future.
This fifth annual project for
the club was held at New Mount
Zion AME Church, -which do-
nated the use of its facilities for
this dinner for the second time.
The entire event is made possi-
ble by "'the kindness of many
people in our community," or-
ganizers said.
Another great activity for kids
is the annual trip to Raymond
James Stadium in Tampa to see
a Tampa Bay Buccaneers foot-
ball game. Tiny tots to towering
teens made the trek to witness
thdBuc tb tttngwtah hN w Engn
end-zone seats.
Some sported T-shirts embla- .
zoned with "Penn's Pals" for
tackle Donald Penn, No. 70,
while others wore jerseys with
players' names. All were gifts to
the kids, as were stadium treats.
The youngsters also got to meet
several players and cheerleaders,
includingl Hardee County's own
Ja~q ue~licne Waldron, who is in
her rookie year cheering on the
Bucs.
Sponsorship for this yearlji'
event is from an anonymouS'
dolior.'
And the club year kicked off:
in August with its eighth annual i
;Back-To-School Event hdld in:
Magnolia Manor Park.
Community & School Aware- i
ness hosted over 300 attendees.
at thle park filled with booths
manned by a ~variety of local
businesses and organizations.

ficials talked with students and
parents. There were free hot:'
dogs.chips~drinks andi popsicles
for the children to en~joy. and
boys who wanted one were
given a free haircut by barbers
Otis Blandin and Jamal Johnson.
As its active club year c'ontin-
ues. Community & School
Awareness stands firm. by its
motto of "Our Childlren; Oui
Community. Our Future."


From school dues to a Bues
game day~ to the holidays. Com-
tiumity & School Awareness is
making a strong presence in the
lives of children of all ages as it
maintains an active club' year.
Its fifth annual Christmas
A2lige) Project held on Dec. 22,
for instanrce. focused on older
kids of high-school age. These
ninth- through 12th-grade teens
often receive little or nothing on


Ch~iristnia dayv because of final-
cial burdelns. andl other helpful
organizations can sometimes
overlook higger kids.
But generous donors known
as,".Christmas angels:' provided
gifts for a host of high-sch~ool
students. who were presented
with a big decorated gift box full
of such items as clothing, jack-
els.. shoes. bair care products,
personal items, sports gear as

Magnolia Manor Park was filled with exhibitors, businesses and organizations, for the
well-attended Back-To-School event. Here, Teresa Crawford of South Florida Community
College and the Hardee County School Board and Kim Smith of Hardee Senior High
School give information and supplies to interested students.


"Christmas Angels" provided' big boxes of surprises to
high-school students- who otherwise would have done
without.at Christmastirhe. :


Kids of all ages, and adults too, received Buccaneer T-shirts and were able to meet with
several players and cheerleaders.


This year, the annual trip to a Tampa Bay Buccaneibrs
football game had added meaning for the excited Hardee
County crew, as Jacqueline Waldron from Wauchula ;is
now a Buccaneer cheerleader.

FORENSIC SCIENTIST


.. By Chip Ballard



HOW'S TWO-THOUSAND-SOMETHING GOING?
Time flies. It doesn't seem much more than a few weeks ago
that' I` sat in my desk by the window on the first floor of the big
'building at Zolfo Springs Elementary School, watching Mrs.
Woods diagram sentences on the blackboard.
In those days the school consisted of two parts: the "little
Buildingg" which house grades one; two and three; -and the "big
building" right next door for grades four, five and six. When we
kids finally made it to the big building, we had "arrived," and not
only were we taught proper spelling, grammar and punctuation, we
were convinced those skills mattered.
If Mrs. Woods' spirit should revisit Earth, and while here she
peeked into someone's computer at e-mail communications, she
would be stunned by the glaring absence of any attempt at proper
usage, even by educated men and women who know better.
She'd be appalled that anyone educated beyond the sixth grade
Should write something like, "hi jane how was your Xrnas mine was
fine ... pleez come by the house cuz i have sumthing 4 u ... did u
c chuck he shaved his head. lol."
Of course, it has been a few full moons since I was privileged
(though I didn't know it then) to be in 1Mrs. Woods' class and learn-
. iog: the now lost art of diagramming sentences. No one could have
_Ir ~en tebim ense ihanges in the b aenew world that lay just

We ultra-mod children of the 1950s who witnessed the inven-
tion of television and the rise of Elvis Presley, who studied in Mr.
Stevens' science class the inventions of Thomas Edison and
George Washington Carver, honestly believed there was nothing
left to invent. We could not in our wildest imaginations envision
such soon-to-come, common household items as hair dryers,
microwave ovens or computers.
Nor could we imagine a time as distant in the future as what
is the year now we're hurdling through, two-thousand-something?
I remem ir watching Mrs. Woods write the date on the black-
boar~d: April 1 1957. It was my birthday. I was 10 years old. I
tried to imagine \what the world might be like in the year 2000, but
it would not compute. It seemed an impossibly long time. -I hon-
estly believed, as did most of my pals, that the world as we knew
it would not last that long. Before then the planet would be blown
up by nuclear bombs like the ones we heard about that fell in Japan,
or else Jesus would come back to Earth to claim His people.
SWell, Jesus still hasn't come; except to take up residency in
individual hearts, and planet Earth still spins on through space. But
Swe kids were partly right: The world as we knew it then no longer
exists.
There are times I wish I was 10 again. But when I look around
at, the world 1()-year-olds are growing up in, with XXX-rated rap
Music (if you can call it music), out-of-control, mega-violent, filth-
spewmng movies and TV shows, and national discrimination against
God, I think that, if I had a choice, I'd stay where I am.
TOday's kids will never know the thrill of experiencing the
magic of the first TV to come to town and the excitement of gath-
ering in the afternoons at the only house in Zolfo Springs that had
one to watch "Lassie," "Rin Tin Tin," "Sky K Doody" and "The Honeymooners" or to be there during the
birth pangs of rock & roll and hear Elvis Presley sing "That's All
'Right, Mama" for the first time.
Sometimes I wonder what the world will be like in the year
S3,000. But that seems an incredibly long time, a time so distant in
the future I can't imagine it. If Mother Earth is still spinning, won't
she be sucked as dry as a prune?
For now I'll reign myself back into the here and now and wish
you are having a happy ... what year is this? Two-thousand-some-
thing?
Time truly does fly, but change, or "progress," is flying nose-
to-nose and pulling into the lead.

THE QUEEN OF INVENTIONS
As I walk around the museum and admire the ieteral antique
sewing machines we have on display, I am, remindedl of mi ow~n
days of learning to sew. ;r
Long before I took home economics at Hardee High ~Shool, I
knew how to sew. I started making most o6f my ownri c~lothes w\hen
I was about 13 years old. I learned to seni from mi mother. Viola l
Rickels, simply by watching her and asking questions as- she
sewed. 'She never actually sat me down to teach1 me. I learned t1
.watching .
It seemed she was always sewing something. Whether.dresses
for us girls or shirts for dad and the boys, she always had something
cut out and lying ready to sew. She also made evening gowns, prom
gowns and wedding dresses. She even made tablecloths, curtails
and bedspreads for our home. It seemed there wasn't anything she
couldn't make!
Today most people prefer to buy.ready-made itemis for the
convenience, rather than spend hours making something "Just
imagine the hours our ancestors spent making their ow\n iloth b~y
hand. How delighted they must have been when the first ssewmg
machines debuted. ..
The. history of the sewing machine datks dack N 1755, when
Charles Weisenthal, a German immigrant living in Londoli, patent-
ed a double-pointed sewing needle to be -used for mechanical
sewing. In 1789, Englishman Thomas Saidt: igsented wha~t~ is cott-
sidered to be the first real sewing machirie..~'.~; i
In 1830, a French tailor, Barthelemy Thinteonnier: patented the
first practical sewing machine that, like Thom~as' Sginint machine,
produced a chain stitch. Around 1844, a Massachusetts farmer,
Elias Howe, was credited with a prototype of today's sewi'g
machine and, in 1846, patented the lock-stitch `ewiyig machine.
Howe tried to interest the tailoring trade with his inventionHke
arranged a competition with his machine set against the fine t hand
sewers in America. The machine won hands down.
In 1851, Isaac Singer introduced a sewing machine for home
use. Prior to 1850, all sewing machines were operated by han'd;:i
took Singer to invent the foot treadle, making the work less cum~
bersome. Of course, today, the name Singer is synonymous with
sewing. Early sewing-machine marketing touted the device as the
"Queen of Inventions." It offered the promise of relief from hours
of tedious hand sewing. Because the costs were out .of the range of
most households, many communities chipped in to buy one
machine for many to use. Eventually payment plans were intro-
duced, making it much easier to own a sewing machine.
Theory has it that the home sewing machine, in a roundabout
way, diminished the role of the homemaker and allowed women to
seek work outside the home. Sewing a garment went from 14 hours
to about two, leaving free time for other activities. Sewing by
machine also provided a way for some women to take in work at
home, providing some extra income for their growing families.
Sewing machines still remained a luxury for many pioneering
families. As Laura Ingalls Wilder recalled, her mother had always
wanted a machine but the family could not afford one until the girls
were grown. Even then Pa had to sell a cow to afford one.
It is interesting to note tha of he thousad of sewi -

aelen Aupgua t B lacar Pdof Mair~iid, g~iii~ 18 2 liayen of
ing with sewing machines; shek is particularly known as~ the mven~r-
tor of the zigzag sewing machine. The model for her 1873 over-
seaming machine can be seen at the Smithsonian.
But you don't have to travel to Washington, D.C., to see a few
'vintage sewing machines.You need look no further than the
Cracker Trail Museum at Pioneer Park. You can see a working
1892 Wilcox & Gibbs treadle sewing machine and several Singer
machines from the 1800s, including a table-top hand-crank
machine.
Even though it is referred to as "fashion designing" in schools
today, sewing has a glorious and interesting past which has been
preserved at the Cracker Trail Museum.

The annual Florida Cracker Trail Ride passed through
Hardee County in late February as the roughly 200 riders
re-enacted the travels of early cowmen as they drove
their cattle across the state to market. Riders took some
time to stop along the way at Zolfo Springs Elementary
School,'allowing youngsters to pet the horses and show-
ing them how Crackers got their name, as the cowmen of
old cracked whips in the air to turn cowS in the right
direction and to move them along. The children enjoyed

By JOAN SEAMnAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They flip-flopped the games
they had last week.
The Lady Wildcats lost at
Desoto And won at Frostproof,
while ihe junior Lady 'Cats
defeated Desoto and lost to
Frostproof in the only' softball
games last week.
There are three games this
week,Truesday, home for a visit
from Lake Wales and today
(Thursday) at Auburndale. Both
are JV/Varsity double-headers.
Tomorrow's game at home
against Palmetto is a varsity-
only game at 6 p.m.
Play resumes after Spring
Break with a JV game at
Bradenton Southeast at 6 p.m.
on March 19. Both teams get
visits from Sebring on March
20 and Frostproof on March.
22.
At DeSoto last Monday, the
Hardee girls started well, load-
ing the bases in the first inning
on a trio of Lady Bulldog
errors, but left the bases
Jammed.
DeSoto scored in nearly
every inning, one in the first,
two in the second, two in the
third, one in the fourth and three
more.in the fifth inning.
Hardee's only tallies came in
the top of the third. Kim Der-
ringer singled and. Karlee
Henderson doubled, bringing
Derringer home. Henderson .
came in on an ;Arissa Camel
sacrifi~e-
It was a different story at
Frostproof on Tuesday. Hardee
started scoring off the bat. After
fouling off three extra pitches,
SDerringer dotibled to left field,
went to third on an Addison
Aubry bunt sacrifice and trotted
home on ai Makayla D~euberry
triple. Frostproof got one
atioard oil a di-ibbler aird home
on a fpitir of liitis.iS It -: wa 1-1,
The game iotked along with
an Ana Galvez hit going for
naught as action slowed. In thh
fourth inning, Deuberry walked
but was caught going to third-
Alex Ullrich was safe on an
error, but caught coming home.
K~endall Gough walked and
advanced with Camel at base,
coming home oil a Galvez field-
er's choice. Hardee, was up 2-1.


That lasted until~ the home
half of the sixth when the Lady
Bulldogs. got a player aboard
and brought her home on an
RBI triple. It was 2-2.
Hardiee came right back with
a run in the seventh, and final,
inning. With two down,
Deuberry singles, advanced ion
back-to-back passed balls and
raced home on a Gough hit to
left field. When Lady Cat pitch-
er Henderson got a strikeout,
fly-out and ground-out, Hardlee
had won the game 3-2.
"Mvakayla Deuberry has been
doing~a great job at catcher and
her hitting. Kendall Gough
plays thirdiand is hitting ~well.
Wfe start the district games next
week and need to continue wlin-
ning," said H-ead Coach Shari
Knighit, whose team is at 5-2.
The JV games went opposite,
winning a squeaker at Desolto.
4-3 .
Hardee got three runs in the
top of the third inning. Anjelica
Jackson started it with a walk
but was out on fielder's choice.
Isabel Abel was safe when her
bunt was misplayed. Similarly.
1Brooke Dixon was safe on the
fielder's choice. Breanna
Godwin doubled. When Abigail
Vargas doubled, it brought
Godwin home with the third run
of the inning.
DeSoto came back with a trro
of tallies in the home half of the
third on a walk, error and hits.
It -wasn't until the home half
of the sixth that Hardee got its
final tally. With two away,
Rachel Coker, who had doubled
in the third to no avail, was hit
by a.pitch, and raced home on a
Tiffany Flores double. She was
out trying to stretch it to a triple
When DeSoto left one aboard
on an error, Hardee claimed the
4-3: victory.
It was a different .story at
Frostproof on Tuesday evening.
when the junior Lady Bulldogs
overwhelmed Hardee 10-2.
Hardee got -a nin in the first
innings on a Coker homer. The
junior Lady 'Cats added ariotlh-
er in the top of the~ sixth. Dixon
walked and advanced on a
GodwNin sacrifice followed by a
Vargas ground-out. Dixon
crossed home plate on a Coker
single.

SEEDS
FROM
''I E
SOWER




A mountaineer came to town
and saw some strange fruit.
;"What's that?" he asked.
"A tangerine," said the ~grocer.
"Try one."
"Nope," he answered. "I've got
some tastes now i can't satisfy.
I'm not aimin' to take on more:"
Do you have tastes you can't
satisfy? Maybe that's because
you've rejected the Lord from your
life.
Without Him, you're on a ro~ad
that leads to ever-increasing
dissatisfaction;. emptiness and
frustration. You become a hollow
soul, a zero with the edges rubbed
off.
There was apoet like that, but he
tumed to the Lord. He testified, "He
satisfieth the longing soul."

Marilou, and a trombone duet
by Pastor Winne and Doug,
who is pastor of Burning Hearts
Community Church in Lan-
caster, Pa., and he gave the mes-
sage today on death, judgment
and forgiveness. It was a joy to
have all of them with us.
Our choir, directed by Nancy
Morrison, sang "Gonna Wear a
Crown," accompanied by Linda
Gray on the piano.
A time of fellowship~ with
coffee and doughnuts was held
after the service.


NO SCHOOL
SPRING BREAK
MARCH 12-16


:2 COMMANDMENTS
Mariy people set and prioritizedl goals when the new year
began. Many of those resolutions already' have been broken or for-
gotten .
With regard to spiritual matters, here, is an area in which we
can all better focus our time and efforts love for the Lord and
our fellow man.
A lawyer once asked Jesus, "Teacher, which is the great com-
mandment in the law?" Jesus said to him, 'You shall love the Lord
your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your
mind.' This is the first and great commandment. And the second is
like it: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two
commandments hang all th6 Law and the Prophets," Matthew
22:36-40.
The biggest thing here is that the love Jesus is describing isn't
just a feeling you have inside. The love He commands requires
action!i
SGod has given us an example in the demonstration of love. He
indeed expressed His love toward us with action!
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten
Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have ever-
lasting life," John 3:16. Yes, God actually did something. And, yes,
He requires us to do something as well!
Jesus' told His disciples, "If you love Me, keep My command-
ments," John 14:15.. The liame writer of .that Gospel account
instructs, "This is love, that we walk according to His command-
ments. This is the commandment, that as you have heard from the
begmruing, you should walk in it," 2 John 1:6.
-...ly Ifiwasc~eggy seek the Lord and love Him, then we will do as
He .conimandA9 imralt treastof i~ur life.
That sai~d','ibibs not b~iaik "is'lid~ off to othselves and strive to
merely be righteous-seeking and free of sin. Sometimes we're so
concerned with our own hardships that we neglect those within our
midst who ~need us the most. "And let us not grow weary while
doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.
Therefore, as we have` opportunity, let us do good to all, especially
to those who are of the household of faith," Galatians 6:9-10.
The love we pursue requires action, and it is a must-have!
"Though I speak with the tongues of men ~and of angels, but
have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal.
And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all myster-
ies and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could
remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I-
bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body
to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing," 1
Corinthians 13:1'3.
Get back to the baSics. Read.: Study. Obey God's Word!

Pn5rOTOS Eti Afrt-4 T'ruJILLO
A group of local teenagers recently was challenged
mna very serious way by the first-ever, Hardee
County Sheriff's Office Teen Drivei Challenge. A
four-hour class beginning at 4 o'clock on a Thurs-
day afternoon taught teens how to avoid a- crash and
: what to do in various driving situation's. The Second
ar part of the challenge continued on Saturday, ~Feb. 4,
n with an eight-hour hands-on driving experience. The
-,~8 teens drove through courses, and in one many had
trouble avoiding the "people," represented by
cones. Another experience for them was' with the
"Seat Belt Convincer." This machine simulated a
crash at between five and seven miles per hour, and
showed the teens that even at that speed i~'s impor-
tant to wear a seat belt to prevent injury. Sheriff
Arnold Lanier thought this an important lesson to
learn, so he also took his turn in the Convincer.
Teens who took the challenge were Sierra Albritton,
Makenna Fite, Rufino Gabriel, Kyle Williams, Justin
Rickett, Will Bennett and Wyatt Maddox. Others who
i~made this day possible were David Singletary from
State Farm Insurance. Kevin Hanchey from Alan Jay
Automotive, and Billy Brown from 106.9 "The Bull."
The challenge was led by instructors Dep. Daniel
Gibson and Dep. Joe Marble
