County redistricting was com-
pleted late last year.

The Supreme Court, howe\-
er, said eight of the 40 Senate

Grandfather In



Hunting Tragedy


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 9-year-old boy accidentally
shot his grandfather while hunt-
ing in southeastern Hardee
County early Sunday, killing.
the man.
It was a tragic end to a
spring-turkey hunting campout
for the Polk County pair.
Kenneth Lindsey Beach, of
Lake Hamilton, had turned 69
just two days earlier. He died at
the scene, Hardee County
Sheriff's Maj. Randy Dey said.
The boy, of Winter Haven, was
not physically harmed with the
weapon's discharge.
Dey said the two had been
hunting on the Metheny ranch
in the area of Sweetwater and
George Marsh roads. The acci-
dent occurredat about 8 a.m.,
he said.
Dey said the pair were guests
of a person who leases hunting
rights on the land. The grandfa'-
ther and grandson were staying


at a lodge off Ordie Drive, he
-added.
That morning, they drove
.onto the ranch- lands, parked,
and prepared to walk up into the
woods,' the major described.
The boy picked up the shotgun,
and it fired.
Dey said the weapon was an
automatic 12-gauge shotgun.
He said Beach was hit in the
neck and on into the head. "It
was at point-blank range," Dey
said, adding, "He died instant-
ly."
Terrified, the 9-year-old ran
for help, finding ranch caretak-
er Lee Witt at his home off
Sweetwater Road. The 911
emergency line was called, and
rescue workers and sheriff's
deputies were summoned to the
scene.
Dey said Dep. Steve Ahrens
was first on the remote scene,
arriving within 15 to 20 min-
utes. There was nothing that

State Park Hosts Annual

Encampment This Weekend


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Moving to a new area can be difficult and
scary for anyone.
But imagine if this new location were fraught
with danger: battles, death, struggles to survive.
Hardee County's first fort is an example of
trying to get protection from all of this.
Showing the community just how this hap-
pened is'Paynes Creek Historic State Park. It is
hosting its fifth annual Fort Chokonikla
Encampment this weekend.
The park will be .transported back to the
1840s. when all of the fighting took place. There
will be re-enactors and vendors on site to give the
audience the "complete historic experience."
The re-enactors will have primitive weapon.,
and give black-powder demonstrations. There
will be Howitzer cannon, bow and arrow, and
tomahawk demonstrations as well. As a highlight
this year, the public will be allowed to take


throws with the tomahawk, testing their skills for
free.
There will also be several vendors selling
foods and various handmade items that are
unique to the period and can make great gifts.
One of the food vendors is J&M Rollin Smoke
Barbecue frbm Highlands County. The owner is
Jason Wilkins. who has ties to Hardee County.
Also, the park's Citizen Support Organization
will be selling strawberry shortcake, boiled
peanuts and snow cones.
You Will also get to enjoy live entertainment
as there will be a band and other musicians,
which consist of several local small groups that
were gathered by Randy Scott.
Park Manager Jackson Mosley explained the
added significance of this fun event: "Like other
state parks we have wanted to establish a signa-
ture-type event that occurs annually but also
describes why the park exists in the first place.

Comedy Play Debu


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
It's showtime!
Now that spring is here, the
Hardee County Players are put-
ting on their spring production
for the 2011-12 season.
The play is called "A Bad
Year for Tomatoes." It is a com-
edy by John Patrick and,
according to the Hardee County
Players' website, it is produced

Myra Marlowe who. fed up
with the pressures of her acting
career, leases a house in Beaver
Haven. a tiny New England vil-
lage. to write her autobiogra-
phy.
Meanwhile. her long-time
agent tries to pressure her into
taking on new offers, but Myra


is successful in resisting him.
Dealing with her new nosy
neighbors, though, is a different
story.
To be left alone with her
thoughts. Myra comes up with
an ingenious plan. She makes
up a mad homicidal sister (actu-
ally Myra herself in a wig) who
is "kept" locked in an upstairs
room. but sometimes manages
to escape.
Her story works just as
planned until the local handy-
man starts to develop feelings
for "Sister Sadie," and some of
the meddlesome ladies decide
it's their Christian duty to save
Sadie.
When things start to unravel,
Myra tells everyone Sadie has
gone off to Boston. which
brings her more problems, this
time with the sheriff.
This comedy is sure to keep


its Friday
you laughing right up until the
end, the Players promise.

Graham, Amanda Bissette,

Cleston Sanders, Victoria Brad-
dock and Jeanette Braddock.

For Battles Benefit


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
They say it takes a village to
raise a child. Well, it also takes
a community to help out one of
its own in need.
Nick Battles is in need.
Nick suffered a major acci-
dent back in November on his
last day of basic training at
Parris Island in South Carolina
to become a U.S. Marine.
Fortunately he survived, but
he now has to overcome many
medical obstacles, with many
more to come.
Nick was transferred from a
South Carolina hospital to the
James A. Haley Veterans Ad-
ministration Hospital in. Tampa
early this year. He has been
undergoing physical therapy
while there, and has been work-
ing very hard to strengthen his
muscles.
When well enough, Nick will
be transferred to the Project
Walk Center in Orlando. This is
a place that specializes in spinal
cord injuries in young adults.
The facility performs inten-
sive therapies that include exer-
cising the legs and lower body


to reteach muscles how to work.
and to learn to compensate. The
goal of these therapies is to get
the patients walking again, if
possible.
To help out in this situation,
people in this community have
pulled together to hold a benefit
dinner for Nick. The proceeds
from this dinner will go straight
into a trust fund for Nick.
The barbecue dinner, cooked
by Ed Perry, consists of chicken .
or pork, baked beans, cole slaw
and a roll.
Tickets will be on sale until
Sunday, but there will still be a
few left for purchase after that
time.
Tickets are $10 each and are
still available at Wauchula'
Family Restaurant, First Na-
tional Bank, and Gloria's
Restaurant in Bowling Green.
Tickets at Wauchula State Bank
are sold out.
The pick-up dinner will take
place Saturday, March 31, from
11 a.m. to 2 p.m. You can
retrieve your dinners on U.S. 17
at the abandoned lot across
from Wauchula State Bank's

Beach's wife and the child's
parents were notified of the
tragedy. ..
"It was a horrible, horrible
accident," Dey said.
"The tragedy is the man lost
his life," he continued. "The
real tragedy is the boy will live
with this the rest of his life.
That's the real tragedy."
Hardee County Sheriff
Arnold Lanier shared his con-
cerns, "This was a -very tragic
event. I hate it for the family
and for all of those involved."
Lanier cautioned, "We can
never be too careful with
firearms. My dad always taught


me never to point a loaded gun
at anyone, and to always con-
sider a gun loaded. Even if I
knew it-was not, I was to con-
sider the gun loaded and to
always keep it pointed down-
range of anyone.
"I have children, and I taught
them the same things," he said.
Lanier concluded, "We as
adults must always use the
utmost caution and care and
safety, but especially so when
training or hunting with young
people.
, "Yet," he recognized, "some-
times no matter what precau-
tions we adhere to, accidents do
happen."

This event is unique for our county with the re-
enactment of an actual historical happening that
occurred right here in our backyard."
During 1849 there were major problems
between "white" pioneers and Seminoles.
"Whites" were moving onto what Seminoles
claimed as their land.
The United States government established a
trading post on Paynes Creek. The store, named
the Kennedy-Darling store after two Army sol-
diers from Fort Brooke who had started their own
trading company, opened in 1849.
But tragedy struck after only a couple of
months when five renegade Indians attacked the
store. killing proprietors Capt. George Payne and
Dempsey Whidden, a third clerk, William
McCullogh, was wounded but managed to
escape with his wife and child.
The Indians then went on to burn the store
alpng with everything in it.
Scared, many of the settlers fled to the nearest,


fort and asked military forces to help them return
home.
Fort Chokonikla was then built as a means of
protection from the Seminoles. The fort's name
is believed to come from the Seminole word
Chocka-nickler. which means burnt house.
The nearby creek soon became known as
Paynes Creek after fallen Capt. Payne. There
.were no more attacks by the Seminoles.
However, the creek brought more misfortune to
the fort.
Many people stationed at the fort contracted
and died from malaria and fever. It became so
much of a problem the fort doctor suggested the
fort be closed. The fort was vacated in 1850. after
less than nine months of occupancy.
Fort Chokonikla Encampment will take place-
Saturday and Sunday between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The entry fee is S3. Paynes Creek Historic State
Park is located at 888 Lake Branch Road in
Bowling Green.

But the moment you turn a
corner you see another
straight stretch ahead and
there comes: some further
challenge to your ambition.,

numerous public hearings and a
major special exception would
be needed if the proposed proj-
ect moves forward. WGP pro-
posed using county garbage
and probably imported garbage
at a plant along the railroad to
produce fuels and other proj-
ects in a closed system that pro-
duces no pollution. The project
could eventually process the old
"landfill, using the garbage and
returning clean fill dirt.

the following during the first
presentation from Waste
Generated Products to the
Commissioners at a workshop,
"At this point, the bulk of our
discussions have been related
to assisting and providing
sites so certainly this project
Is worthy. It's got to be, you
know, one of the most fantas-
tic projects that I've ever,
seen, and you have to over-
come the cynicism and doubt
and I'm going tell you Mr.
Fishman is a very profession-
al person. Marty has escorted
us through this process and I
remain with a high. I don't
know. I just feel pretty good
about it".
On Feb 2,2012, Mr. Lambert
wrote to me, "While none of
the alternative renewable
energy projects show much
promise' today, they will some-
day be part of our economy
and, community." So, Mr.
Lambert, when did' it finally
dawn on you that Waste
Generated Products and the rest
of your garbage processors
were not ready for Prime Time?
Why do you persist to this day
with Mr. Albritton and Chair
Bryant offering-free land and
seeking Indemnification on the
$40 million note from some
poor private lender being duped
like so many others by you and
your partners? Are you still on
the garbage train? The secured
funding was supposedly all set
up waiting on a triple "A" coun-
ty credit rating. Where's the
money? Where is the land?
Who's land is it? Do their
.neighbors know?
On Feb 9,2012 Mr. Lambert
wrote to me, "I am currently
in contact with 11 different
entities purporting to have
alternative energy solutions."
Is it Mr. Lambert's intent to
work in asretA cutting deals,
securing sites, and offering free
land and money like he did with
Waste Generated Products?
Then, promote the hell out of
them to the Commissioners
without any background check-
ing, feasibility studies by out-
side experts (not Kimley Hornm
cronies), search committees
looking for the best companies
in the best industries, environ-
mental impact assessments, etc.
On the back side, when the truth
is illuminated by ordinary peo-
ple not being paid like County
Officials, they refuse to answer

exit with,,no accountability of.
after action reports What,
Went Wrong?
What Can We Do To Prevent
This Fiasco in The Future? Had
Mr. Lambert pulled this in a real
private sector job, he would
have been fired on Oct 14 after
the first round of teal questions
like the ones I asked Mr.
Lambert and Mr Albritton on
Nov 7, 2011. Instead, he plants
land mines with 11 more
stinkers that could sink our
County and with it the future
for real growth we could, be
proud of.
There is too much power con-
trolled by a few unqualified,
desperate officials stifling pub-
lic involvement and perpetuat-
ing the cronyism that keeps
them in power.
When will-real change for the
better finally take root in
SHardee County? Only when the
ordinary people stand up and
demand accountability and de-.
homogenized County leader-
ship.
To that end, let me and hope-
fully other non-cronies be
* appointed to the EDC and IDA
boards. Then, they will have to,
answer the tough questions and
watch their backs on conflicts
of interest, full disclosure,
sweetheart deals, bailouts, etc.
I ask for your support -and rec-
ommendation for an appoint-
ment.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Jesus taught in the Temple
every day. The leading
priests, experts in the law,
and some of the leaders of
the people wanted to kill
Jesus. But they did not know
how they could do it,
because all the people were
listening closely to Him.
Luke 19:47-48 (NCV)

FRIDAY
Then Judas Iscariot, who
was one of the twelve, went
to the chief priests in order
to betray Him to them. And
when they heard it, they
were glad, and promised to
give him money, and he
sought an opportunity. to
betray Him.
Mark 14:10-11 (RSV)

SATURDAY
The disciples did as Jesus
directed them and prepared
for Passover. In the evening,
He sat down with the twelve
disciples, and during supper
He said, "I tell you this; one
of you will betray Me.... One
who has dipped his hand
into the bowl with Me will
betray Me. The Son of Man
is going the way appointed
to Him; .but alas ,for the man
by whom the Son of Man is
betrayed!"
Matthew 27-19-26 (NEB)

SUNDAY
And while'they were still eat-
ing, Jesus took a loaf,
blessed it and broke it and
gave it to them with the
words, '"Take eat, it is My
body." Then He took a cup,
and after-thanking God, He
gave it to them and they all
drank from it, and He said to
them, "Thi s My blood,,

Dr. Barbara Carlton on March 17 in Hardee County killed St. Patrick in observance of
St. Patrick's Day. She hunted with her friend Carl Saunders. She noted, "For over two
weeks after spotting this large dominant gobbler in the swamp, I have been captivated,
by an intense desire to bag him. The large tom is distinctive in the brilliant white of his
head and neck when in full strut The Phantom of the Opera. After roosting him over
three times with another large tom, six hens and two large jakes -- the day of reckon-
ing was at hand. Carl Saunders and I ventured into the dark swamp at 6:34 a.m., sat in
our two blinds (Sam and lan) at 6:50 a.m. The first gobble was at 7:20 a.m., and he
appeared in front of my blind 200 yards away with St. Patrick. The Phantom strutted in
full view with his bodyguard St. Patrick for several minutes 45 minutes later St.
Patrick was inr front of my blind 25 yards away and the Phantom 40 yards out. The
moment of truth came and St. Patrick was sacrificed at 8:20 a.m., and the Phantom still
reigns supreme. St. Patrick was 17 pounds, 4 ounces, with a 10-inch beard and 1 spur
only 1 1/2 inches."

CHURCH NEWS
By Diane Burget
We began this Lord's Day
worship on March 11 with con-
;gregational singing of "Jesus
,Loves Me." -
We also sang "I Am Thine, 0
Lord", 'Leaning On the. Ever-
lasting Arms" and "Blessed
Assurance."
Linda Gray and Carole Jones
provide the accompaniment on
the organ and piano. A trio,
composed of Maxine Stromme,
Charlotte Householder and
Nancy Morrison, sang "Do You
Know My Jesus?"
They were accompanied by
Linda Gray on the piano. Our
choir, as always, did a great job
as they sang "Gloryland
Medley." Linda Gray also pro-
vided the accompaniment for
our choir. The offering prayer
was given by Don Merillat, and
Lowell Gordon and Bill Burget
collected the offering.
If you missed church this
morning, you missed a very
informative and interesting
message by Pastor Bob Winne
on the "Creator and Creation.".
He took Scripture from
Genesis, Psalms, Isaiah, II
Corinthians, Revelation and
Philippians.
The service was concluded
by singing "God Be with You
until We Meet Again."

Since it was Spring Break last week and a bit dull, I'm going to
vary from the usual report to say how proud I am of the young peo-
ple of this county.
With recent Fair Week. they have proudly showed their steers,
swine and rabbits. Now nearly 300 are involved in youth softball
and baseball, and many stay on the honor roll year round.
As they get older there are FFA and 4-H to raise animals, have
clubs and learn a lot. They excel in academics, getting state and
national accolades. They represent Hardee County well wherever
they go and spread respect and a good reputation. Those in sports
exhibit good sportsmanship and do their best every game, match or
whatever.
Ninety percent of the youth at Hardee High are active in school
activities, sports, clubs, their churches, and whatever activities they
can add to their busy schedules.
But. there's that 10 percent. Some are periodic trouble-makers
and end up in ACE regularly. These are the same folks who will
grow up to another kind of detention, commonly called the Hardee
County Jail. or even state prison, for failing to support their chil-
dren. fighting, drugs, stealing and even murder.
The rest aren't quite so bad, but they are constantly negative.
Nothing anyone else does is right and they won't do anything to
help. they just complain and agitate.
The grown folks in the county mirror what goes on in our
schools. There's 90 percent of adults who are busy in church, clubs,
local government, sports in behalf of their children and grandchil-
dren and all kinds of positive things. If there's a need, they're right
there to help.
Then. there's the other 10 percent. Some go to jail as noted
above, and some are the agitators, the negative people who are try-
ing to destroy this county. They're always looking for something
wrong;,. it's easier to criticize than try to help.
Most of these trouble-makers have- either lived in the county
and'done nothing to help or recently moved here and somehow
think they know more than the ones who have lived here all or most
of their lives. They gather some information, call it "facts," add
some misinformation and half-truths, blend in some sensational-
ization and make like they have all the answers, none of which are
specific.
There's a difference between the All-American grumbling
about the weather and the umpires, or telling stand-out experiences
where they were wronged. That's kinda normal B.S. and expected
in this country. But, it's different when the negativism is hateful,
harmful and just downright unnecessary.
I saw a bumper sticker once.that said, "America, love it or leave
it." I think we need one for Hardee County. People who come here
or come around only to complain, to look for some trouble or cre-
ate some, are not really needed here. People are either part of the
problem or part of the solution. It's a simple choice. The old song
goes, "Accentuate the positive, eliminate the negative." We need to
get rid of the negativism that's tearing Hardee County apart.
Good people, let's emulate the young people and resist the neg-
ativism and destruction going on.

Legend has it that sailors once thought that wearing a gold
earring would improve their eyesight

Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things be-

Citizen Demands


Commission Response


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A local resident presented a
collection of articles and asked
that county commissioners re-
spond to them.
Frank Kirkland waited pati-
ently until the end of last
Thursday's evening commis-
sion meeting to raise issues of
what he considers serious mis-
management of county finances
over the last several years.
He provided each commis-
sioner with copies of five arti-
cles printed in on-line news
over the last three months by
the Bradenton Times concern-
ing Hardee County finances.
"You 'commissioners hold
much authority and should
show us where the monies have
gone," said Kirkland alleging
County Manager Lex Albritton
may have profited from the
"missing dollars."
Commissioners were unwill-
ing to respond and referred it to
county attorney Ken Evers,
who said he had started reading
some of the articles when they
appeared, but quit because there
were too many falsehoods that
he couldn't give them any cred-
itability. He felt those contribut-
ing to the articles had less than
honorable reasons and were
using the articles to further their
own agendas.
Commission Chairman Min-
or Bryant said there was an
internal audit and annual exter-
nal auditing which showed
nothing wrong.
One of the issues was money
spent on repairs at Resthaven,
an adult congregate living facil-
ity in the old Lemon Grove
schoolhouse. Commissioner
Grady Johnson agreed that he
had visited the facility recently
and thoroughly inspected it. He
felt there were no water dam-
ages, no roof repairs as the orig-
inal old tongue and groove roof
is still there. What companies
were paid nearly $400,000, for
these alleged repairs, show the
bills and prove these allegations
wrong, he said, making a
motion for an investigation. It
died for lack of a second.
The matter dates back to the
no-name storm, a flood event in
2003, followed by Hurricane
Charley on Aug. 13, 2004, with
Frances on Sept. 4 and Jeanne
on Sept. 26 of that year. By the
second of the storms, Rest-
haven had to be evacuated and
residents were not able to return
until April 2005 when major
repairs were made, all furniture,
walls, floors and such scrubbed
down because of mold from
water damage. Air quality,
building and fire inspections
concluded the building was safe
for its residents to return.


"I personally was at Rest-
haven after the storm and saw
the damages. All the residents
left. The money was spent well
in restoring it. They have a
committee there which oversees
all of it. You keep throwing out
innuendos and it's not true. It's
a lie," said Commissioner Dale
Johnson.
Resthaven damages were just
a drop in the bucket of the near-
ly $700 million damages in the
county by the 145 mph winds.
The football stadium was
knocked off its foundation and
the Wildcats had to play all road
games that year. The Nicker-
son-Ullrich Building at Pioneer
Park and the Cattlemen's Arena
also were blown off their moor-
ings. All six schools were heav-
ily damages, the Zolfo Springs
fire/police station destroyed,
and 5,600 of 7,550 residential
units (single family, multi-fami-
ly, mobile home, etc) damaged
almost beyond repair. Many
had to be demolished and
rebuilt.
There were acres and acres of
yard and tree debris. Normal
procurement procedures were
removed under disaster declara-
tions. School was out and elec-
tricity not restored for weeks.
Audits from those time periods
have been reviewed and re-
reviewed. In two cases, pay-
ments were made by insurance
companies directly to vendors
and auditors commented that it
did not show a proper audit.trail
for monies spent. Accordingly,
the annual reports were amend-,
ed to show the intake and outgo
of those monies .
"I have read the audits and
I'm pleased," said Commis-
sioner Sue Birge. Commission-
er Rick Knight agreed. Dale
Johnson said, "I can take each
one of these items and I can
answer every one of them."
"Does this board want to
spend time and money on a
witch hunt? Does anyone other
than Grady want to investigate
this?" commented Chairman
Bryant. With no second, the
motion died and the discussion
ended.
In other action in last week's
and the previous meeting, the
commission:
-approved the final plans
and approved preparing specs
and going out for bids for the
clerk of courts storage building
to be erected on South Ninth
Avenue. Clerk B. Hugh Bradley
said he was proud of it and has
approved the blueprints for the
floor plan which maximizes
space and includes room for the
future.
-heard a report and ap-
proved a contract of the rehiring
of former Fire-Rescue Medical


Director Dr. Edwin Pigman. His
one-year contract. at $1.000 per
month, will begin April 15.
when that of interim director
Dr. Greg White, who filled in*
while Pigman was on duty in
Afghanistan. expires. White
was paid $2,500 per month.
-approved proclamations of
April as Water Conservation
Month and April 4-14 as Public
Safety Telecommunications
Week.
-approved a resolution for a
$3.8 million loan at 1.31 per-
cent interest from the Florida
Local Government Finance
Commission for Solid Waste
Expansion at the county landfill
and a contract with SCS En-
gineering for design and engi-
neering oversight for the new
five-acre expansion. That com-
pany had originally done plans
for a 10-acre expansion but the
state Department of Environ-
mental Protection would only
approved a five-acre site.
-heard comments from two
of three residents. One of most
interest was from Edie Pettis of
Fort Green, who expressed con-
cern for the amount of stray ani-
mals which the county has to
euthanize each month, which is
not fair to the handlers who
feed, water and exercise them
and then have to see them put
down.
Pettis proposed a task force
be formed to get citizen input to
raise adoption interest. "If we
put our heads together, we can
come to a better plan," she said.
Bryant suggested it as a topic
for the county's next workshop,
on April 13, when anyone inter-
ested can come and offer sug-
gestions.
-were reminded of the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment. flood zones Open House
on March 20 and new wind
speed maps and zones which:
became effective March 15.,
Both could adversely affect
building permits and insurance
rates for residential and com-
mercial buildings.
-discussed the legislative
attempt to change the Medicaid
proportion for which counties
will be responsible. For Hardee
County, it could be a $600,000
hit. Commissioners will contact
the governor's office in hope he
will veto the bill passed by the
legislature on a narrow vote.
-approved three zoning
issues. One allowed a property
owner a variance from 25-foot
side setbacks to 10-foot set-
backs on a 500x650 lot on
which an existing home had to
be demolished and a replace-
ment one would need those
same setbacks. Sdch efforts to
allow people use of their prop-
erties is on a case-by-case basis
in unique situations.
The other zoning issues were
staff-initiated changes to the
Land Development Code to
bring it into alignment with the

MEDICAL REPORT

David Lawrence, warden at Hardee Correctional Institution, spoke to the Wauchula
Kiwanis Club on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at the Panda Restaurant. HCI, located west of Fort:
Green on SR 62, began receiving male inmates in April 1991. The Florida state prison
system has a $2.2 billion budget with 27,300 employees and 100,000 inmates, with
16,000 surplus beds. In 2007 estimates were 116,000 state prison inmates by 2012. The
admission rate in down for new inmates, plus the rate of Florida men re-entering prison
within five years has dropped from 33 to 30 percent. The state is considering closing
seven prisons and four workcamps. HCI has 1,620 inmates in the main unit and 288 at
the work camp. HCI has about 320 employees with 60 vacant positions. There has been
no inmate escape within five years from a state prison main unit in Florida. HCI has a
$22 million annual budget, with 75 percent going for payroll and over half the employ-
ees live in Hardee County. Assistant Warden Ben Mount said ages of the HCI inmates
range from 18 to 86. There are 470 inmates convicted of murder, 412 for sex crimes and
430 for drugs, with 580 serving life sentences. Florida prisons have 93,289 male
inmates and 6,981 female inmates including 166 men from Hardee and 19 females from
Hardee. HCI prepares 4,700 meals a day, with an average daily food cost per inmate of
$1.92 at the main unit and $1.86 at the workcamp. HCI is Level 6, the most secure
prison level next to Raiford. The minimum sentence is 366 days. Florida has seven con-
tracted prisons run by private companies, including South Bay and Moore Haven. From

Cathy Exendine, emergency room nurse manager at Florida Hospital Wauchula, spoke
to the Hardee Rotary Club on Wednesday, Feb. 29, at the Java Cafe in Wauchula. Some
13 local nurses are working toward certification in rehabilitative nursing. In 2011
Florida Hospital Wauchula had 13,000 emergency room patients, compared to 8,000 10
years ago. The Wauchula ER delivers about six babies a year. The National Institute of
Health reports nationwide 98,000 patients die of medical harm each year in America.
The hospital stresses quality care. From left are club president Sue Birge, Cathy

CANCER DONATION


Greetings from Fort Green!
Most everyone who attends
Fort Green Baptist really appre-
ciates all the people who attend-
ed the benefit for the family of
John Keene. We had a good
crowd and some delicious food
and unbelievable gospel music.
Gulf State really sane out their
hearts and the Holy Spirit was
evident.
Elizabeth Powell is a good
cook and anything she cooks is
good but she outdid herself on a
peanut butter and a chocolate
chip cake. It is now necessary
for her to remember to bring the
recipes!
Randy Davis will be ordained
as a deacon next Sunday even-
ing at 6 p.m. at the church.
Please come out for this special
event and then plan on staying
for refreshments in the fellow-
ship hall after the evening serv-
ice.
Sherman Cooper and Randy
Davis went fishing last Thurs-
day morning. It was not neces-
sary for them to spend the after-


noon cleaning fish. Mike and
Hunter Davis have been bring-
ing home the catfish. Mike said
they had caught 31 in a few
days.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Al
Albritton. His services were
Saturday. I met Al when he
worked at Hardee Correctional.
He worked in maintenance and
I was in the Personnel Depart-
ment.
Our sympathy is also extend-
ed to Clint Walker and family
on the death of his nephew.
Larry Potts.
Johnnv and Carol Brown
spent a couple of nights in
Orlando visiting with their
youngest son. Matthew. Mat-
thew lives in Tennessee but was
attending a conference. His par-
ents enjoyed having the oppor-
tunity to visit and eat supper
with him.
Alice Faye Move attends our
church on Sunday nights. I had
missed seeing her probably
from me missing one night and

then mathe her missing another
so it seemed like I had not seen
her in a month of Sundays. She
said Limestone was having a
revival and they needed a piano
player! Now that is a dedicated
person and I just bet she sang
some too. She has a beautiful
voice.
Paul Adams was in an acci-
dent with his mule last week.
Thankfully he is okay and only
had to spend one night in the
hospital.
We have put Clarence Bolin
back on our prayer list. Also.
Arthur Womack fell and broke
some bones near his shoulder
and a rib. but is already in re-
hab. Mary Samuels will get
another treatment next week.
Buck Toole is still receiving
treatments and Gary Oden did
well after his last treatment but
as with the others, they just
seem to keep coming around!
Sharon Lee is home from the,
hospital as is Wesley Smith.
Leigh Ann Line was scheduled
for foot surgery on March 21.

Hello from Paynes Creek Historic State Park!
The volunteers of the state parks were treated to a fun day on
March 3rd. Paynes Creek was selected to host the annual. district
volunteer picnic. Around 350 volunteers showed up to be honored
for their dedication and park rangers from around the district did all
the work.
Donald Rorgione. Director of Florida Park Service and former
manager of Paynes Creek. attended the event and even performed
with the band. There was some really good entertainment and food.
Paynes Creek volunteers, wanting to show off our history, dressed
in pioneer clothing for the event, and Seminole Indians set up a
camp and interacted with our visitors.
As a grand finale to the day, a short version of the drama
"burning of the Kennedy-Darling trading post" was performed for
our guests along with a cannon demonstration.
The Fort Chokonikla Encampment will be this weekend,
March 24th and 25th. Each day at'2 p.m. the reenactment of the
Seminole attack on the trading post will take place and is per-
formed by reenactors. Back in 1849 after the store was burned, the
government selected this area to build one of a chain of forts,
'expecting more Seminole uprisings. The Seminoles gave no more
trouble and due to illness from malaria and yellow fever the fort
was abandoned with less than a year of occupation.
The event will have some foot-stomping good music, freshly
grilled barbeque will be available, and Paynes Creek Preservation
Alliance will ha'ie popcorn, sno-cones, boiled peanuts and straw-
berry shortcake. Be sure to visit the vendors to buy some crafts and
visit the Seminole camp and the soldier camp. Celebrate!
The park entry fee is only $3 with up to eight people in a vehi-
cle. Grab some Iriend-ind L.ome enji' a day or two at the park.

ORANGE & BLUE REVIEW
Catch A Glimpse of Campus Life at HHS
Dr. Michele Polk


Hardee Senior High School is a unique
place to work and learn. I can attest to this
statement having worked in other high
schools prior to settling in Hardec County,
but the thought has been reatlirmed over
the last few years by members of the
state's Region TV [)A\ Team who immerse
themselves in our campus life on a regular
basis. The most common accolades that
secm to set us apart from many of the
schools they serse relate to the positive
school en ironment. a strong teacher com-
mitment to improving student achicve-
ment, and the good behavior and appear-
ance of our students. Of course, I lardee
High also faces some unique challenges,
and it is those challenges that we continue
to work closely with the state to overcome."
SIi[S is currently in its third year
of support from the state department. Ini-
tially. one reading coordinator was as-
signed to assist the school's reading coach,
reading. and English teachers. Last year,
support was increased to provide a team of
experts, with each member of the team
serving as a resource for one of the areas of
math, literacy (reading and wrTiting), sci-
ence, and drop-out prevention. For the
2011-12 year, a representative experienced
in the area of Career and Technical Educa-


tion twas added to the state support
team. The state's Region IV .)A Team
has spent many hours on the high
school campus .working with curricu-
lum coaches, instructional staff. and the
administration to improve instructional
practices within the classroom setting.
Students and teachers have become
accustomed to "living in a lishbowl'"
with visiting sta te eam members wvalk-
ing through classrooms and conducting
observe, nations of instruction. Much ofthe
professional development that the staff
has undergone is the direct result of
collaboration among the state team, the
administration, and the instructional
coaches. The relationship between the
'members'of the state team .and school
personnel is highly positive, with the
single focus for all involved being in-
creased success for Hardee High
School students. The extra effort that
has been put forth by the teachers, ad-
ministration, tutors, and students finally
paid off in January when we received
the welcomed news that HHS had
pulled itself out of "1"' status. earning a
"C" for our 2010-1 1 performance.
I would venture to say that
most readers of the Herald Advocate


have some connection to Hardee High
School, either as a parent, former or
current student, or possibly as a busi-
ness partner. With HHS being the only
high school in our small district, the
teachers, stalf and .students of Hardee
High want the school to serve as a
source of pride for the community at
large. With that in mind, we have es-
Lahlished "The Orange & Blue Re-
view" as a means to two ends. First.
we hope to highlight campus life at
Hardee Hligh and show the community
some of the great things our students
and staff are involved in, and second-
ly, we want to inform readers about
high school related topics that influ-
ence student "success. Each week, the
"Orange & Blue Review" will provide
readers with upcoming school-related
dates of importance, highlights of the
week past, selected pictures, and at
least one feature article written by a
staff member, student, or school relat-
ed VIP. We invite you to visit this
section weekly so that you can stay "in
the know" about Hardee High and
catch a glimpse of the campus life that
makes our school unique!

Some of the most talented and gifted students at Hardee Senior High were recent-
ly targeted to participate in the FloridaLearns STEM Scholars Program. The 21
members are all 9th and 10th graders, and were chosen based on academic per-
formance and interest in STEM subjects (Science, Technology. Engineering, and
Math). This program will provided opportunities for these students to meet and
work with scholars from other counties, visit Universities to experience research
activities, and learn from academic professionals in STEM related fields.

Louis, St. Fort


Team Leaders


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They were a dynamic duo, a
force in Hardee basketball four
years ago; now they are college
leaders.
Arnold Louis and Mark St.
Fort are top rebounders in their
respective colleges, Arnold at
Savannah State and Mark at
Warner University.
Both are 6'6" red-shirt jun-
iors on their teams, seniors in
the classroom. Arnold is major-
ing in computer science, Mark
in exercise science. Both will
get an extra year of college as
they return for their senior hoop
seasons and work on master's
degrees.
ARNOLD LOUIS
The Savannah State Tigers
did well this season with a 21-
12 record, bowing out in. the
NIT -.-(National Invitational
Tournament) on March 13
against Tennessee 65-61.
During the season, Arnold
averaged 23 minutes a game,
with 9.5 points and team lead-
ing rebounding both offensively
and defensively. In the 33
games, he was tops in rebound-
ing in 21 of them. He was in
double-digit rebounding most
of the time, with a high of 17
against Coppin State and 14
against both Stetson University
and Howard University.
He also was third in scoring
and was high scorer in six
games, his highest, 24 against
Coppin State, 16 points against
North Carolina A T&T and 13
at Arkansas. He led the team in
steals and was third in blocked


shots.
MARK ST. FORT
Mark started his college
career at Savannah State but

Oasis RV News
By Georgianna Mills


AROUND THE PARK
This has been another excit-
ing month here at the Oasis
Park.
Georgianna and Dave Mills
were blessed to have Geor-
gianna's twin sister visiting for
10 days. She enjoyed meeting
everyone and especially travel-
ing around the Sunshine State
of Florida.
Frank and Arlene Huiet have
their daughter Joan and grand-
daughter, Talian, visiting and
Talian is celebrating her 18th
birthday.
Bob Brae had his daughters
Michelle and Samantha in for a
week.
Diane Mominee has her
friend Jo Barragan in from


Michigan visiting.
Joyce and Tom Longueuill
left for Michigan, after a
month's stay with Claude.
Joyce also took home the pen-
nies she won from the Pokeno
players.
Les and Ann Day have their
daughter and granddaughter
Lindsey, with them for a few
weeks.
We are gearing tiup for our St.
Patty's Day parade, started up
many moons ago by our own
Bill Hartigan.
BINGO
March 3rd we had 40 play-
ing. Emma West won the jack-
pot and Jane Chamberlin won
the jar. The 50/50 went to Ed
Souligne, who just happened to


Louis


pick out his own winning num-
ber. Now there are a few spec-
ulations on that! Audrey Semler
did question it, and it seemed,
he won it fair and square.
March 13 had 27 playing.
Frank Huiet won the 50/50, six
merchant, tickets were given
out. Shirley Hyde won the jack-
pot. The jar is empty.
POKENO
Only three players on the
ninth with Joyce Longueuil tak-
ing the other girls to the clean-
ers. Think that is three days in a
roll. Janelle Reid finally got to
be a big winner on Monday.
Now Audrey has been to the
bank three times for more pen-
nies, and it looks like if she
wants to play anymore, she will
have to make another trip.
SHUFFLEBOARD
It came down to a tie be-
tween, Dave Mills and Jerry
Kruys, Georgianna Mills and

Dowayne Parks. What a game it
was. The anticipation was so
high you could feel it in the
stick and puck. The champion's,
Georgianna Mills and Dowayne
Parks, with seven points ahead
of Dave and Jerry.
BIBLE STUDY
We had 22 in attendance for
Sunday service. Dr. Rev. Trent
Swanson led us in prayer, and
spoke on John.14, the "Heart"
Special music with the Oasis
Bluegrass band. Lou Mothers.-
baugh sang "He Means Every-
thing to Me," written by Warren
Pennie.
Will Pennie sang "Life's
Roadway to Heaven," and the
closing song was sung by
everyone, "How Great Thou.
Art."
Till we meet -again here in
The Herald-Advocate, May
God Bless You All.

vailed last week for the Sunshine State. Most localities received no

ing of blueberries was underway with volumes expected to
increase within the next week. Movement of strawberries
decreased as most growers finished for the season. Watermelon
planting gained momentum in northern Florida. Producers market-
ed shipments of snap beans, eggplant, bell peppers, radishes, and

conditions improved over the previous week. The pasture condition
was very poor to excellent, with most poor to fair. Summer pasture
was greening up but not near enough for grazing. The condition of
the cattle was very poor to excellent, with most cattle in fair to
good condition. Drought was the first limiting factor throughout

southwest area. In the Panhandle, the condition of most pastures
was mostly fair to good. Wihter pastures were growing well fol-
lowing recent rains. Perennial (summer) pastures began to green
up. In the northern area, pasture and cattle conditions were poor to

to good condition.

I mIl
Red Skelton was a very funny man who never used one swear
word throughout his long. distinguished career.
To any of you too young to remember Red Skelton. all I can
say is. "Too bad."
Red Skelton was among the funniest individuals that ever
lived. When the Palmetto Civic Center (near Bradenton) opened
several years ago, Skelton was the first act to grace the beautiful
new building. He was on stage, right by himself, for one hour and
45 minutes, and there was rgot one dull moment.
Skelton was 75-years-old. The packed-to-capacity crowd ex-
.ploded into uncontrollable fits of laughter too many times to count.
and during every instant of the entire performance people could be
heard chuckling and laughing out loud.
A 25-piece orchestra huddled immediately in front of the
stage, accompanying Skelton's hilarious antics. Skelton had written
every note the qrchastra played. He said when he got back to his
motel room. he would paint until 4 a.m. (his wonderful clown
paintings hang in high esteem all over the world). sleep four hours.
.then be off to another city and another audience.
I laughed that night until tears streaked my face and my sides
ached, and judging from the 10-minute standing ovation. I was not
the only one.
Skelton accomplished his stunning and hilarious one hour and
45-minute show without uttering one curse word. not even mild
ones. He said he did not believe one had to be vulgar to be funny.
Red Skelton was an enormous talent and a great man. To any-
one to young to remember him. all I can say is. "Too bad."

were able to break the window
and pull her to safety before the
fire consumed the house.
In yet a third incident. Cor-
rections Sgt. Will Cartwright.
Corp. Earl "Opie'" Harrison.
nurse Denise Sanders and LPN
Mary Jane Cimmino each re-
ceived the Medal of Merit in
their Jan. 12 response when an
inmate went into cardiac arrest.
Finding him with no pulse and
not breathing, their combined


actions were able to resuscitate
the inmate, who survived the
heart attack and is still doing
well. The inmate thanked the
Sheriff's Office for its interven-
tion, stating he would not be
alive except for the quick
actions of these four individu-
als.
Sheriff Lanier said he is
proud of each of these individu-
als but it is what is normally
expected of Sheriff's Office
employees "who go above and
beyond every day."


These four combined their efforts to save the life of a man who had suffered a heart attack. With Lanier, from left, are
LPN Mary Jane Cimmino, Nurse Denise Sanders, Sgt. Will Cartwright and Cpl. Earl "Opie" Harrison.


Also recognized by Lanier with a Medal of Merit were (from left) Dep. Todd Souther,
Dep. Michael Lake and Dep. Sylvia Hendrickson.

Sheriff Arnold Lanier presented a Medal of Valor to Dep.
Steve Ahrens. Missing from the photo is Det. Jamie
Wright, who was also applauded.

SEEDS
FROM
r THE
SOWER"
Michael A. Guldo
SMetter.Gtcoqia


"Ouch," cried Mrs. Lofting while
sewing. "Everytime I sewandtryto
get this needle through coarse
cloth, I pierce my thumb."
Her sympathetic husband be-
came interested, and he fashioned
a bell-shaped covering. Jokingly,
he called it a "thumb-bell."
Injust a littlewhile women began
ordering his cap, which is now
called a "thimble," and is found in
almost every home.
When you're pierced, don't
pout, pray, Ask the Lord for
wisdom to turn your obstacle into
an opportunity.
The Bible says. "If any of you
lacks wisdom, he should ask God, s
who gives generously to all."


On the days that we are feeling especially happy perhaps we
could challenge ourselves to share a smile with someone who
needs one. It's easy to smile at a cheerful person, but how much
greater the blessing to try to cheer up a discouraged or angry
person. Joyfulness is contagious!
Paul writes in his letter to the
Romans (1:11-12), "For I long
, ( to see you, that I may impart
to you some spiritual gift
to strengthen you, that it,
that we may be mutually
encouraged by each
other's faith, both yours
and mine." Share your
joy with others at your
house of worship this
week, God will smile
on youl

The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its intent to issue
a Phosphate Management Facility Permit (No. FL0037958; PA File No. FL0037958-015-
IW1S/NR) for the Mosaic Fe'rtilizer, L.L.C. South Fort Meade Mine (Facility). The Facility
discharges treated wastewater resulting from its mining and beneficiation activities via Out-
fall D-001. Outfall D-001 discharges into an unnamed swale, a tributary of the Peace River,
Class III Freshwaters of the State. The Facility's sand tailings discharge is monitored to.
document its potential to impact to ground waters of the State.
The Facility's mailing address is: 13830 Circa Crossing, Lithia, Florida 33547-3953. The
Facility is located at 5880 Manley Road, Ft. Meade in Polk County, Florida and geograph-
ically at:


Latitude: 27 39' 59" N


Longitude: 810 45' 32" W


The permit application file and supporting data are available for public inspection during
normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holi-
days, at the State of Florida, Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Mining
and Minerals Regulation, Phosphate Management Program, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway,
Temple Terrace, FL 33637-0926. Please telephone (813) 632-7600, extension.138 or 158
for an appointment.
The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are
set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mall Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension
of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (re-
ceived by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice
or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who.has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the dateiof publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an ex-
tension of time within fourteen days of receipt pf notice shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) wvill be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative
Code:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
.(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the
address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the
determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's
decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed
action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal
or modification of the Department's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's
proposed action.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue me-
diation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation
agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any
person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must
contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The
agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000,
within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing media-
tion will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settle-
ment.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to me-
diate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the
agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department
must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to
protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision
must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain, available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice
will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes. 3:22p

Back To Basics
By lan Rice
Gospel Preacher

"CAN YOU BE RELIGIOUS AND 'TOLERANT'?"
Many people in our society are quick to point out how Bible-
believing Christians are "intolerant". If you dare present how God
plainly condemns homosexuality then you are "intolerant". If
you speak God's truth with regard to the facts concerning abortion,
you again ,are labeled as "intolerant". So the question begs, "Can I
be religious and be tolerant?" I would suggest that yes, we
can. However, that will depend on what definition of the word "tol-
erant" you use. You see, many people will argue that the "toler-
ance" they speak of is merely patience and understanding ... but is
that really their motive?
During the Captivity, we read of the young man Daniel who
was hand-picked for government service. Daniel was one "in
whom there was no blemish, but good-looking, gifted in all wis-
dom, possessing knowledge and quick to understand, who had abil-
ity to serve in the king's palace, and whom they might teach the
language and literature of the Chaldeans. And the king appointed
for them a daily provision of the king's delicacies and of the wine
which he drank, and three years of training for them, so that at the
end of that time they might serve before the king." (Daniel.1:4-5)
Although Daniel was offered the best to eat and drink, he did not
partake because he "purposed in his heart that he would not defile
himself with the portion of the king's delicacies, nor with the wine
which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs
that he might not defile himself." (Daniel 1:8) Daniel was patient
and respectful in his demeanor, but would not violate his con-
science by going against the laws of God.
Within, the early church, we see patience exhibited by both
Peter and John, as they were taken into custody by the Sadducees
because "they taught the people.and preached in Jesus the resur-
rection from the dead" (Acts 4:2). They marveled at them, "realiz-
ing that they had been with Jesus, and seeing the man who had been
healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it."
(Acts 4'14) "And they called them and commanded them not to
speak at all nor teach in the:name of Jesus. But Peter and John
answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God
to listen to you more than to God, you judge. For we cannot but
speak the things which we have seen and heard." (Acts 4:18-20)
Facing later opposition against speaking the truth, "Peter and the
other apostles answered and said: "We ought to obey God rather
than men." (Acts 5:29)
You might be wondering how these examples exhibit toler-
ance. These are actually examples that indeed show patience.
Daniel and Peter weren't disrespectful in their demeanor ... but
they were understanding and patient while standing firm in their
convictions. You see, there is a big difference in the tolerance that
some demand ... an'd acceptance! People today aren't asking you
to be merely patient. No they want your approval for, their
behavior. Asking me to be patient with a homosexual or pro-choice
individual is one thing-- but demanding acceptance and approval
is quite another. With regard to how we speak upon these matters,
"We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)

Letter To The Editor

Wauchula Firm Thanked
My M Ch II 11


By A Happy
Dear Editor:
It is not often I have the
opportunity-to share a positive
experience I've had dealing
with a local company. However,
I was so impressed with the
level of service and profession-
alism afforded me that I just had
to write this letter.
Recently, I purchased burial
plots and contacted Sutton
Monuments to prepare the cop-
ing and rock around the burial
plot and move the headstone.


SCustomer


They did a beautiful job, and I
was very happy with the results.
So, thank you Sutton monu-
ments for a job well done. It
was truly a pleasure working
with you. In these economic
times, it is hard to find a com-
pany who truly wants to do the
best they can for their cus-
tomers.
Thank You,
Eunice Herring
