Woman's Death Spurs Murder Charge


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Police moved quickly Tues-
day to upgrade their charges
against a man jailed, since
November in the severe beating.
of a Wauchula woman.
The, woman, Gladys Faye
Merchant, 43, died on Monday.
Kenneth Lee Coughlin, 36, of


FATAL CRASH


417 N. Ninth Ave., Wauchula,
originally was charged with
aggravated battery and proba-'
tion violations in the Nov. 18
incident. The battery charge,
however, was soon boosted to
attempted murder.
Now, according to city Police
Chief Bill Beattie, that charge
will again be upgraded, this


time to,second-degree murder.
Coughlin remains behind
bars at the Hardee County Jail
without bond as he awaits trial
on all charges.
Beattie said the beating
occurred shortly before 9 p.m.
on'Nov. '18 as Merchant walked
southward on North Eighth
Avenue, approaching Louisiana


Street. There, he said, Cough-
lin, who had been in a relation-
ship with the woman, met up
with the woman and began
arguing with her.
Witnesses alleged Coughlin
started hitting and kicking
Merchant, who called out for
help. As witnesses and the
woman's son responded, the


man fled on foot, Beattie said.
Merchant was badly injured,
with blood coming from her
mouth, and was immediately
transported to Florida Hospital
Wauchula. From there, she later
was airlifted by medical heli-
copter to Tampa General
Hospital.
Merchant was placed on life
support, but was released from
the Tampa hospital this past
Friday, after doctors concluded

FINR Sues CF
Wants Quarter-Mile Mining Setback


PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO
A 62-year-old Wauchula woman died early Monday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash on Heard Bridge Road, the
Florida Highway Patrol reported. According to Cpl. Kimberly Benavidez, Charlotte Brown was driving her 2005 Toyota
southwesterly on Heard Bridge Road when she left the roadway near Eagle Drive at 12:40 p.m. The cause is unknown.
The corporal said Brown's vehicle traveled across the northbound lane and into a ditch, where it collided with a con-
crete culvert and overturned. Brown, who was not wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected from the vehicle and died
at the scene, Benavidez said. She became the second.person to die on Hardee County roadways in 2012.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Florida Institute of
Neurologic Rehabilitation has
sued the Department of En-
vironmental Protection and CF
Industries challenging the
issuance of a permit for CF's
South Pasture Mine)Extension.
The case began on Monday
before the state Division of
Administrative Hearings and
Judge D.R. Alexander in
Tallahassee. The hearing is
expected to last until Frida.y or
into next week.
The judge's decision will be
final, pending a possible appeal
to the 1st District Court of
Appeal.
FINR had filed suit in fear
that mining activity close to its
property line would affect the
hydrology of the land and the
wellbeing of its clients, most of
whom are recovering from head
injuries.
FINR is located at 1962
Vandolah Road in Wauchula,
and is bordered' by CF property
to the north, east and south.
In 2007 the 872 acres owned
by FINR was designated as a
"rural' center" in the county's
future land use codes, which


call for a quarter-mile, or 1,320-
foot, setback for mining activi-
ties from FINR's property lines.
The DEP permit did not rec-
ognize the county imposed set-
back or require a specific set-
back, and FINR. owner Joe
Brennick wants that setback
included in the permit.
West Palmer, the county
mining coordinator, said the
county imposed setback of a
quarter-mile mark would keep
CF from mining 450 acres in
the proposed extensioin,.which
t1als 7,513 acres
Palmer said. county mining
regulations normally call for a
50-foot setback from neighbor-
ing property lines and a 500-
foot setback from any structure,
such as a house. A rural center
designation brings the wider
setback.
CF did not to challenge FINR
when it changed its land use
classification to a "rural center"
in 2007.
"I don't think you put a mine
next to a head-injury facility,"
said Brennick. "They do not
mix together."
Brennick's family has been
operating, the facility since

Documents Refute Hurricane Repair Allegations


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Questions about- expenses for
hurricane recovery for Iest-
haven continue to swirl.
On. the heels of a March 15
commission meeting presenta-
tion from a concerned resident ,,
there were five requests for
information to County Manager.
Lex Albritton's office for docu-
mentation of'all the monies
spent for' the work done on
Resthavin and the county Agri-
Civic Center complex -in 2004-

The five requests, all dated
between March 17 and March
22, are from Carlynne Smith,
Robbie. Smith, Pam Belflower,
Commissioner Grady Johnson
and Henry Kuhlman.
Kuhlman's' three-page, sin-
gle-spaced request has requests
divided into eight areas: why
Doug Knight was hired ,to
administer insurance claims and
aid payments; damage assess-
ments and priorities; appraisals
at the Civic Center and Rest-
'haven; insurance settlements;
selections/of contractors; identi-.
fying information for Florida
Restoration; building permits


and inspections; payments for
all repairs, including invoices;
and who has addressed linger-
ing rumors about misappropria-
tion of hurricane monies.
Johnson's request directs that
information be provided to him
by March 26 and lists purchase
orders/expense invoices to be-
verified but notes "I have and
will continue to reject your lack
of honesty and truthfulness as
an excuse to not preform your
duties. This information should
be readily available."
Kuhlman received most of
the information on March 26
and immediately wrote another


three-page memo to Albritton
questioning most of the infor-
mation and comments he heard
during his. visit to Albritton's
office to pick up the informa-
tion.
The three other citizen re-
quests are more simple, asking
for purchase orders and docu-
mentation for hurricane expens-
es for Resthaven and the Civic.
Center in 2004 and 2005.,
Many of the questions asked
have been answered numerous
times over the years since not
one, but three, hurricanes dam-
aged and re-damaged much of
the county in the fall of 2004.


STATE ATTORNEY
In fact, when auditors were
completing the 2004-05 audit
and discovered payments made
by insurance directly to a
Tampa vendor, a preliminary
inquiry was launched through
the State Attorney's Office in
Bartow.
That inquiry did not get past
the preliminary stage and any
record of it has been destroyed
by the State Attorney's. Office.
That office notes, "We no
longer have that file. Our reten-
tion schedule on.investigations
which are closed with no fur-


their action is one year."
Part of that inquiry of
Albritton and project manager
Doug Knight's authorization of
payments made directly to dis-
aster remediation specialists
Serypro includes the June 15,
2005, authorization from
Knight to pay $395,282.85 to
ServPro for Resthaven work
and $729,324.15 for work at the
Civic Center complex.
At the time of the inquiry, a
letter sent from the county's
insurer, Public Risk Manage-
ment, to the State Attorney's

Fund Raisers Saturday For Battles, Leonard


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
When turning on the TV and
hearing about tragedies occur-
ring around the world, most
people's reactions are of .sym-
pathy or sadness. But ho.w
would you react if you heard of
people hurting, who lived just
down the road from you?
This Saturday will be the
perfect opportunity to do more
than just show compassion.
Two separate fundraisers are set
to take place in the community,
for Nick Battles and Lea
Leonard Kaltner.
Battles, a 2010 Hardee
Senior High School graduate.
suffered a traumatic injury in
November while at Marines
Boot Camp at Parris Island in
South Carolina.


un his last day of training, he
and another Marine-to-be were
using the skills they had learned
during the past three months to
get through a series of events.
In the last event, Nick ended up
shattering a vertebra and frac-
turing another.
This left him paralyzed from
the collarbone down.
Today Nick is at James A.
Haley Veterans Administration
Hospital in,. Tampa and is still
recovering, and now has feeling
and movement in his arms and
chest. He will be transferred to
the Project Walk Center in
Orlando when well enough, so
he can receive intensive therapy
to hopefully be able to walk
again.
This. Saturday, a take-out
dinner will be held on U.S. 17


across from the Wauchula State
Bank parking lot, where the
Wauchula Drive-In Restaurant
was previously located.
A limited number of tickets
may still be purchased at
Wauchula Family Restaurant,
First National Bank, and
Gloria's Restaurant in Bowling
Green. T-shirts in support of
Nick are available for purchase
at Hardee Signs Plus T's locat-
ed at 511 S. Seventh Ave.
The dinners, cooked by Ed
Perry and consisting of chicken
or pork, baked beans, cole slaw
and a roll, will be handed out
between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The -e will also be a raffle
throughout the sale, courtesy of
local business owners.
Nick will make an appear-
ance from noon to 2 p.m. to


greet and thank everyone for
their love and support.

David Cook, retired editor of the Ocala Star Banner, last year
wrote about a phosphate boom around Ocala and Durnnellon start-'

County in 1889 were transported to Brunswick and Savannah, Ga.,'
. where the ore was loaded onto ships bound for Europe.

The Dunnellon Phosphate Company constructed' a shipping.
basin near the mouth of the Withlacoochee River called Port'Ingli.! ,
A railroad line was built from Dunnellon to Port Inglis. In 1902'
ships began leaving Port Inglis for Germany, England, Firance,
Sweden, Denmark and other countries.
During the boom era over 100 phosphate companies were
organized, but only '14 ever began mining in Marion County, wrote
Cook. Land speculation led to a boom and later buit."A French

1992.
Richard Ghent, CF's director
of community affairs, phos-
phate operations, said CF has
been mining in Hardee County
since 1978 and the company
lias a long history of being good
neighbors and corporate citi-
zens.
"We do not believe our mine
extensionn will have any adverse
environmental impacts or nega-
tive impactW on our neighbors,"
Ghent said.
He said it is CF policy to talk
to neighbors about concerns
and 'try to resolve disputes.
CF, however, has been unable
to successfully negotiate the
conflict with FINR.
Ghent said CF met with
many environmental groups
and governmental agencies
over this permit, and said the
FINR objection was unexpected
to some degree.
Palmer anticipates CF's
application process for county
permits will be completed and,
come before the County
Commission for a vote around
August of this year.
FINR currently employs 600
people and has 130 patients at
its main campus on Vandolah
Road.
CF employs 183 people at its
Hardee Mine and an additional
450 people at its chemical plant,
in Plant City, where the rock
,mnined. in "'Hardee -County is
processed into usable fertilizer.
'he Hardee County Mine is
CF's sole source of phosphate
reserves.
CF's trninal at the Port of
Tampa whfre it ships its fertil-
izer up the Mississippi River
and. around the world employs
an additional 50 people.
Brennick said he plans on
expanding his healthcare facili-'
ty within 12 months to add
additional jobs and patients.
In recent court filings,
Brennick wrote, "What makes
FINR unique is the rural and
peaceful setting of our main
campus and the peace and
serenity it offers our clients."
Brennick alleges that the
ponds on his property could be
dewatered and during heavy
Rainfall his property could flood,
and force patients to be evacu-
ated.
iBrennick contends the berms
erected by CF around his prop-
erty would kkeep the surface
water from naturally flowing
across the land and exiting the
east side of his property into a
creek, which continues through
CF's property.
Some of FINR's patients are
' in acute care and on life sup-
'port.
"The life and health of these
patients would be placed in
jeopardy if we were forced to
evacuate them because of
flooding, caused by the mining
operationss" he said.
'Gherit said FINR's patients
would "absolutely not" be
endangered because of CF's
mining operation and he does
not feel flooding would be an
issue.
In 2007, FINR announced
plans to build a rural residential
community along With shops,
eateries, a hotel, a rehabilitative
hospital and office space on its
property. Brentliek said he still
plans to move forward with
those plans af some point, but

him, Bowling Green. police
said.
It was the second such inci-
dent in 10 days.
Bowling Green police Capt.
Brett Dowden said the victims
were traveling northbound U.S.
17 Sunday afternoon when a
light-blue metallic Hyundai
pulled out from Coconut Street
and struck their 2002 Honda
motorcycle.
Donald and Rebecca Lynn
Dunham were left lying in the
roadway, their motorcycle on
top of them, as the Hyundai
driver fled, Dowden said.
Witnesses attempted .to stop
the driver, who sped north onto
Chester Avenue and then east
onto Orange Street, ignoring
stop signs. He "disappeared" on'
Orange Street, witnesses said.


"We are asking the communi-
ty's help to try to find a little
justice for the Dunhams,"
Dowden said. "The man left
them lying there with no regard
for their 4ives." The couple,
who reside at Crystal Lake
Village in Wauchula, were seri-
ously injured, he said.
Dowden asks anyone with
any information which may
lead to the identity of the driver
to call police at 375-2255 or
Central Dispatch at 773-4144.
Similarly, sheriff's authori-
ties are still seeking a hit-and-
run driver who injured a motor-
cyclist on March 15 at Seven-
Mile-PointhnWauehulas, *ws
The 2000 Toyota Tundra he
was driving and the utility trail-
er he was pulling both were

The driver ran from the
scene.


Tips For Making Smart

Although tough economic
times have taken a toll on many
Americans in recent years,
making sound financial deci-

great time to begin making
smarter financial decisions,"
said investor education expert
Gerri Walsh. To help keep your
finances on course, try these 10
Strips:

with Care. Keep credit card
spendifig in check and try to
pay them off in full. If you have
holiday debt, pay it off as
quickly as possible.
3. Check Your Credit
Report and Score. Request a

Financial Products. Compar-
ison shopping for' financial
products is as crucial as shop-
ping around for a television or
phone plan.
5. Don't Leave Money on
the Table: Contribute to Your
401(k). Too many workers
leave money on the table by not
contributing enough to their
401(k) to get their full employ-
er match. Taking advantage of a
match can significantly increase
your savings.


6. Avoid Payday Loans and
Other Money Drains. Altern-
ative forms of borrowing, such
as auto title or payday loans,
usually have higher interest
rates than those charged by
banks or credit unions. -
7. Don't Overdraw Your
Checking Account or Debit

may seem like a helpful feature
but overdraft fees can add up.
Consider opting out of pro-
grams that automatically ap-
prove--ATM and debit card
transactions.

Letter To The Editor

Lea Leonard Kaltner

Benefit Set March 31


Dear Editor, ,
I, for one, can attest that the
Heartland does indeed still have
a heart, and it's a big one. It is
still *pumping with vigor and
flowing with kindness and con-
cern for others.
Everyone knows that times
are tough. Every one of us feels
the financial pinch, or maybe
even punch, that our economy
is delivering to us.
As we get up every day and
get the kids ready for school, go
to work,-rush to the supermar-
ket, and then prepare and seive
dinner just in time to deliver the
kids to practice, it becomes easy
for us to miss the little things.
It becomes easy for us to
become self-absorbed in our
daily problems. It becomes easy
to callus our emotions over and
ignore our neighbor's troubles..
ILet's face it, we barely have
time to breathe, let alone worry
about the misfortunes of a total
stranger. These times will test
the moral fabric of a person's
soul. '
Over the last six weeks I have
visited a great number of busi-
nesses in the area promoting the
"Love for Lea" cancer benefit
for Lea Leonard Kaltner. I have
been overwhelmed at how
much ''support we have
received.'The majority of peo-
ple and businesses have
responded positively with dona-
tions of one kind or another,
some doing so with tear-filled
eyes. It makes me proud to be a
member of this, community.
The "Love for Lea" Benefit
will be held this Saturday at
Charlotte's Webb Pub located At
3315 SR 64 W in Wauchula. A
great day of live music has been
planned for you starting at 2
p.m. and running until mid-
night.
Local talents Roger Rhodes
and the Crush band will host a
variety of local and Bay Area
musicians, including the


Carlton Travis Band. the
Allen/Griffin Band and the
Angry Sloth Society, as well as
acoustic sets performed by Joey
and Reyna Kirkland and Caylah
and Steve Coker.
We will be serving barbecue
pork and chicken dinners with a
roll and two sides of either mus-
tard greens, cole slaw and
baked beans for $10. We are
offering a drive-up/take-out
service between 2 and 6 p.m.
There will also be raffle draw-
ings, a silent auction, T-shirts,
games and free camping.
To purchase tickets in
advance or for more info call
863-735-8887. All proceeds
will go to Lea, so come out and
help us show support and have
a good time for a great cause. If
you are unable to attend, dona-
tions to "Love for Lea" can be

BENEFITS OF A SMALL TOWN BANK
I was in Myakka City a few months ago and ran into an old
friend named Richard Kersey. He was the long time manager of MJ
Ranch in Myakka City. He came up to me and said, "Doc, I want
you to write a story about the day you came to my ranch and
worked 100 head of cows in an hour through a TECO chute." I
laughed and said, "You know, I think I remember that."
So to clear this up for you, what we were doing was a regular
annual fall work. We were brucellosis testing, pregnancy testing,
vaccinating, and de-worming every cow as she came through the
chute. Now, that may or may not sound like and impressive feat to
you but let me describe this chute to you.
A TECO chute caught cattle just fine. The problem was unlike
the hydraulic chutes we use today. It required three men to operate
in concert to work cattle that fast. First, there was a man who oper-
ated the hedge catch, which has a bar he pushed down with his
weight and pushed the cow's head down as two cable-operated bars
closed on the sides of her neck. They had to squeeze and pull the
rope simultaneously on her so she wouldn't choke herself in the
head catch and then someone had to close the, tail gate. This was
another operation in itself. There was a quarter circle gate that was
hinged on one side and swung across into a tract on the other side,
But we did, in fact, get that done.
Then I got to thinking about the evolution of hydraulic chutes
over the years. Actually, at7.1 years ofage, I've lived through the
time when essentially all of the cattle chutes that were used in
Florida have been developed. The first one' was a Grapar that was
built by Mr. Andy Garner Sr. Mr. Garner had trouble getting his
patents approved, so a lot of his chute designed was copied by
other ranchers in the area. His chute was designed at a time when
cattle were not the size that they are today.
My experience with one was at Bright Hour Ranch where' we
used it when we were vaccinating heifers. On a particular day at
Bright Hour, I remember we worked 750-800 head of heifers. The
squeeze chute part was a bar On top of the chute that had a rachet
on it. A man named Hooker Browning pulled it across and locked.
the latch. To release it, he simply pushed the bar up with both
hands. On the last calf, he released it early and knocked me uncon-
scious! When I woke up, Hooker was smiling and telling me how
sorry he was. To this day I don't believe him!
After that there was a Triangle Iron Works Chute. It was made
by Triangle Iron Works in Sebring. My grandmother had one when
I was a little boy, It would catch a cow, but it was also a cow killer.
It was designed so that if a cow turned her head up just right she
would knock her front teeth out. I'm sure that you're aware that
cows only have eight teeth on the bottom. It would sometimes
knock some of those teeth out. If a cowboy wasn't paying attention
and a cow got her shoulders under the bar, it would lift the whole
bar up, lift him off the ground and sometimes catch him on the chin'
and peel him over backwards.
After that came the TECO. The TECO was a really sturdy
chute that showed up on almost all ranches because it was big
enough to work bulls. You could just about catch anything in the
world in it.
After the TECO came the WW. The WW chute could be oper-
ated by one man. I can remember Donald Boyd, a cowboy in
Arcadia, was really good at it. In my first experience as a veteri-
narian, I went to a large animal practice in Arcadia called
Matthew's Animal Hospital.
I was the low man on the totem pole. We had to bleed cattle


after that sale that night in Arcadia. I always got to start after the
sale sometime between 10 p.m. and midnight and bleed cattle until
we got through. Sometimes that was in the neighborhood of 300-
400 head. I would work all night, and of course they would still
expect me to be at the clinic the next day because I was still the low
man on the totem pole.
Donald Boyd came by one evening with four or five beers in
him and said that the guy who was operating the chute didn't know
anything. So he jumped in and took over. He was really good at
closing the gate, releasing the tail gate, and pulling the squeeze
down all simultaneously. For the people who became proficient at
it, the WW became a very popular chute.
For one thing, it was small enough to hook up to a trailer, and
it came in a longer size with a palpation gate on it if you wanted.
It's the chute the USDA used when they were moving from farm to
farm to bleed cattle.
However, it did have one serious drawback the latch on the
front two gates as they came together simultaneously was spring
loaded. It was a friction latch and if anybody ever made the mis-
take of putting oil on it, everything that came through it popped the
gates open. It took a long time to get the oil off of it and into a fric-
tion latch.
Along the way also came the Powder River Chute. We Used
them at Turner Cattle Company. I didn't like them because I just
felt like they were a head skinner. The bars that worked the head
catch and especially the bar that squeezed and worked the tail gate
were always skinning your head. But one thing about them was the
way they were designed; you never lost cattle through the front of
them. Those chutes are still around a little bit. There are several
others that came along but never reached universal appeal of the
ones that I've mentioned.
Finally came hydraulic chutes. They really didn't have patent
on them at first; they were built all 6ver the place. Several, compa-
nies built them, and they were all very similar in design. It was just
a matter of how gpod the manufacturer wanted to build them and
how much steel he wanted to put into them. They took over work-
ing cows because one man could control the tail gate, the squeeze,
and the head catch simultaneously with a hydraulic lever on the
side of the chute that allowed cows to be worked very rapidly. Once
we got to that point, working cattle fast really was quite simple,
depending on the attitude of the cow crew.
Since I always worked cattle by the head, working cattle fast
made my.4ay more productive.. Something I learned about cow
crews was that when you showed up in the morning to work cows,
you wanted to wdrk asilong as you could before the cow crew took
their first Break.'.' -
I never saw a cow, crew work as fast as they did first thing in
the morning. They slowed down after that break. Furthermore,
after lunch they got slower>.Throughout. the day, every time they
took a break they came back a little slower and a little slower.
I learned to encourage cowboys, "Look, let's just work a little
longer before we quite this morning." Sometimes we got half the
cows that we were to work all day done in the first three hours
before they took their first break.
I thought it was interesting that I have lived through the devel-
opment of most'cattle chutes. I know that I've left some out, but the
ones I have mentioned were used in significant numbers in Florida.

Doctors Request Medicare

Cover Lifesaving Test


A new, less invasive way to

could help save thousands of,
lives if more people could
access it.
The test is a virtual colo-

effective as standard. colo-
noscopy for detecting cancer but
often easier on the patient. The
problem is, while most major
insurance companies cover the
procedure, Medicare does not.

Radiology Imaging Network
(ACRIN) study, published Feb.
23 in Radiology, found that vir-
tual colonoscopy works as well
in those ages 65 and older as it
does in adults ages 50-64 and
can serve as a frontline colorec-
tal cancer screening tool for sen-
iors. This is consistent with the
ACRIN National CT Colonog-
raphy Trial 'for patients 50 and
older, published in The New
England Journal of Medicine in
2008. Now that there is proof
that virtual colonoscopy works
very well, including in those
ages 65 and older, Colon Cancer
Alliance, and other experts say
Medicare should cover seniors
for this life-saving test.
CT colqnography employs X-
rays and virtual reality technolo-
gy to produce three-dimensional
images of the colon, that permit 'a
thorough and minimally inva-
sive evaluation. It also requires
no sedation. .
The Disease
Colorectal cancer is the third
most Irequently diagnosed can-
cer and second-leading cause of
cancer death in the, United
States. Yet despite the known
benefits of screening, studies,
indicate that, millions of
Americans age 50 and older are
not being screened for the dis-
ease. The Centers for Disease,
Control and, Prevention esti-
mates that up to 30,000 colorec-
tal cancer deaths each year
could be prevented if all-those-
age 50 and older-were screened
regularly., Studies at National
,Military, Medical Center have
shown that availability, of.the
virtual ;. exam significantly
boosted screening rates.
The Doctor's Advice
As C. Daniel Johnson, M.D.,
of the Mayo, Clinic, explained,
"CT colonography is a perfectly
viable colorectal cancer screen-
ing tool for the traditional
Medicar&e'-'e population.
Wider availability made possi-
life by Medicare coverage of
CT colonography would attract
more seniors io be screened for
colorectal cancer-which is so
_successfully treated when
detected early.' Making CT

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Indus-
trial Development Authority is
beginning to expand the Com-
merce Park to provide room for
future growth as it is filling up
and running out of available
lots.
The 160-acre park located off
State Road 62 was opened in
2006 and has since occupied 20
of its 24 lots with various busi-
nesses that choose to locate in
Hardee County. ..
The expansion will be direct-.
ly south of the current park,
onto 104 acres the IDA pur-
chased in 2008 for the
appraised value of $1.56 mil-
lion from Dewey and Judith
Terrell.
Bill Lambert, IDA executive
director, said he expects it could
take up to two years to develop
the property and have it ready
for a business to locate there.
He said two retention ponds
for the property have been per-
mitted and construction should
begin soon. He said the ponds
will produce 35,000 yards of fill
dirt that can be used by the IDA
in the park or it could be used
by the county for its various
Seeds.
The current road through the
park will be extended through
the addition, and then could exit
the property and connect to
either Gebhart Road or Old.
Bradenton Road.
Lambert said there are ap-
proximately 160 jobs currently
in the park and he feels confi-
dent there will be 200 jobs in
the park by the end of this year.
He said KeyPlex, a plant
nutritional company, is now
manufacturing its chemicals in
the park and should add to its
employee base in the future.
Nutrapure is expanding its
business and wants to purchase
Lot 1 and a building in the park
it has been leasing for a ware-
house and shipping department.
The company will move those
operations into a building in
Wauchula and wants to bring a
soap-making company to the
park.
Nutrapuie also recently pur-
chased eight acres in the park to
add more skin-care manufactur-
ing facilities in the near future.
The board voted unanimous-
ly to sell the building' for the


appraised value of $698,000
minus the lease payments the
company had been making,
totaling $117,000, for a final
purchase price of $581,000.
The IDA board also:
discussed building a pre-
treatment facility for the waste-
water plant in the park and also
adding a roughly 1,500-square-
foot building for the, Hardee
County Sheriff's Office.
County Utility Director Park
Winter told the board the vol-
umes and contents of the waste-
water, coming out of the park
and into the treatment facility
often disrupt or kill the living
culture of micro-organisms that
help break down the sewage.
He said it can cost a few
thousand dollars to get the plant
back in line after each incident,
and recommends putting a pre-
treatment facility in the back
end of the park to fix the prob-
lem. He estimates the facility
would cost between $100,000,
and $150,000 to build.
The sheriff's outpost would
be located in the same building.
It would provide an extra level
of security for the park while
also helping the Sheriff's Office
better serve the north end of the
'county.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier and
Major Randy Dey were at the
meeting to explain their needs
and answer questions. "It would
be similar to the HCSO outpost
in Zolfo Springs once we took
over patrolling the town,"
Lanier said. "It is a good central
location for us."
He said deputies would stop
there while on patrol to fill out
paperwork and it would provide
for other various sheriff's activ-
ities. -
Lambert said he will apply
for an Economic Development
Authority grant to construct the
building.
got an update on the pend-
ing purchase of the former
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive .headquarters on U.S. 17
and REA Road.
Lambert said the contract is
almost, completed and it will
have 90 days until closing, with
a $10,000 deposit required on
the $996,000 building. It will be
paid for with an $800,000 EDA
grant and a $700,000 IDA
grant. The additional money
will 'go toward retrofitting the

In Honor Of Cassidy Knight, My Big Sister
Sometimes I still hear the sound of your voice. I wish you were still here with
me, but you had no choice. I know an Angel held you as your body said good-
bye. But that doesn't stop my heart from
breaking .... "I miss you and'I cry". No one
can believe that you are really gone, our
hearts are broken and our spirits moan.
"She was too young"' I've heard people
say, "Why did she, have to die this way?" I
try not to be angry, soI kneeland I pray,
asking God to be with us, as we face each
day. I always try to give Mom an extra kiss,
to make up for a little girl, she will always miss. I understand everyone's empti-
ness and their sorrow too, because, "My precious sister .... we all miss you". I
know you are happy in Heaven above, surrounded by the Angels and all their
love. But today on earth, my heart still grieves, because you are no longer here
M with me". I will look toward Heaven, for I know I will see a star that will sud-
denly glow big and bright, It will be'my sister smiling .... and watching over me.
I Love & Miss You My Best Friend & Big Sis

BOWLING GREEN QUICK LUBE
I &AUTO REPAIR I


Week Ending: March 25, 2012
Weather Summary: Virtually no rainfall fell across Florida
during the week. Although it was often cloudy with humidity railg-
ing mostly between 70 to 80 percent, the seasonally dry weather
persisted. Where there were scattered showers, mostly at the
week's end, it helped improve pastures. Producers would have wel-
comed more rain as preparations were underway for planting field
crops, but dry weather this time of year continued as expected. At
week's end, the topsoil moisture ratings were 6 percent very short,
48 percent short, 45 percent adequate, and 1 percent surplus. At
major cities, the accumulated seasonal precipitation (since March
1) and year-to-date precipitation was deficit everywhere except at
Miami. The heaviest amounts of precipitation recorded last week at
the 36 Florida Automated Weather Network (FAWN) stations were
at North Port (2.53 inches), Live Oak (1.72 inches), and Alachua
(1.29 inches). Rainfall ranged from one-half inch to one inch at
MacClenny, Indian River, Pierson, Balm, and Jay. Five stations
reported between one-fourth and one-half inch of rainfall, and 22
stations recorded less than one-fourth of an inch. The U.S. Drought
Monitor continued to show the driest areas of Florida to be in the
counties in northeastern Florida and continuing in a band stretch-
ing southeast to.the gulf. Another extremely dry area was southern
Manatee County and adjacent land area in Sarasota County.
Temperatures averaged 3 to 12 degrees above normal during the
week at major cities. High temperatures at Florida's FAWN stations
were mostly between 85 and 90 degrees. Low temperatures were
above 50 degrees with most stations reporting temperatures above
mid-to-high 50s.
Field Crops: Corn planting was well underway in most areas
of northern Florida where weather and field conditions were favor-
able. Producers were making good progress with planting corn in
Suwannee County. Also, producers were preparing fields for plant-
ing peanuts. Producers in Madison County were very busy planting
corn, too. The warm weather was beneficial to the winter wheat
growing area in northern Florida.
Fruits & Vegetables: Vegetable producers in southern Miami-
Dade County continued harvesting winter vegetables. Vegetable
growers planted watermelon fields in Suwannee County. USDA's
Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) reported vegetable move-
ment included snap beans, cabbage, celery, cucumbers, escarole,
radishes, eggplant, bell peppers, squash, sweet corn,and tomatoes.
The USDA-AMS report that the supply was light for sweet corn,
cabbage, celery, escarole, and some squash varieties.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition
improved slightly, with most pastures in poor to good condition.
The condition of the cattle was very poor to excellent with most in
fair condition. Drought limited forage growth. In the Panhandle,
the condition of most pastures was mostly fair to good. Warm tem-
peratures improved pastures but the lack of rain hindered -warm
season grasses. In Okaloosa County, some grazing came back early
due to the early spring weather. The cattle condition was somewhat
improved from the previous week. In the northern areas, most pas-
tures and cattle were in fair to good condition. In the central areas,
most pastures were in fair condition varying from very poor to
good. Pastures improved slightly but were hampered by the lack of
rain. Most of the cattle were in fair to good condition. In the south-
western areas, the pasture conditions were very poor to good rang-
ing generally from poor to good. Scattered showers helped keep
pastures green. Most of the cattle were in fair to good condition.
Citrus: Temperatures were moderate with highs reaching the
mid-80s in most of the citrus region. Rainfall was light across the
region. North Port received the most with 2.53 inches and four of
the 25 stations recorded no precipitation. Most sites recorded less
than a half-inch of rain. Drought conditions existed across the
entire citrus region ranging from abnormally dry on the eastern
coast to severe on the west coast. Drought conditions are from the
U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated Mar 20, 2012. The Valencia
harvest continued to average over five million boxes weekly.
Valencia bloom is heavy, other varieties exhibit varying stages of
bloom. Cultural practices included discing, herbicide application,
irrigation, young tree care, and limited hedging and topping.

Wildcats Efforts Not Quite Enough


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Forcing an extra inning,
going the distance, everything
the Hardee Wildcat nine did last
week just couldn't get them
over the hump.
The 'Cats lost in eight in-
nings to Sebring at home and in
seven innings at Desoto.
This week, the Wildcats visit-
ed Teneroc Tuesday in the first
district. encounter. Tomorrow
(Friday), the 'Cats host the
Lake Wales Highlanders in
another district matchup. It con-
tinues with a visit from Teneroc
on April 3 and a trip to Auburn-
dale on April 5.
. SEBRING 12, HARDEE 9
"The kids played well, but
just couldn't finish it. Murrell
(Winter) pitched to well to lose
it. Kris Johnson and Cody
Spencer finished it. We battled
hard," commented Head Coach
Steve Rewis.
It was an even first inning,
three up, three down for both
squads. The Streaks pushed a
pair of runs across on a pair of
doubles and a single. Hardee
responded with three runs for
the 3-2 lead.
Wintz Terrell started it with a
walk, Winter was hit by a pitch
but out on the error which put
Dawson Crawford aboard, Both
scored on a Dalton Hewett hit
and he came in on an error.
In the third frame, Sebring
evened the score with a hit to
right center, and back-to-back
errors. Hardee answered with
three more runs. Deonte Evans
got it going with a single to left
field and steal. to second base.
He went to third on a Kramer

Royal sacrifice and home on a
Justin Knight hit up the middle.
Winter walked but was out on a
fielder's choice by Crawford.
He, in turn, went down on a
Hewett fielder's choice. Luke
Palmer was hit by a pitch and
Johnson's single brought He-
wett home with the third run of
the inning. Hardee led 6-3.
Sebring narrowed that to 6-4
with a fourth inning run, while
Hardee left runners on base,
In the fifth, Sebring picked
up another run, making it a 6-5
game, while Hardee again left
runners stranded.
In the sixth, Sebring left a
pair of runners aboard, while
Hardee plated a pair of tallies.
Evans singled, stole second and
went to third on a Royal sacri-
fice and home on a Knight hit.
Knight stole second and third
and came in on a wild pitch.
Crawford drew a walk but was
stranded. It was 8-5.
Sebring again tied the score
in the top of the seventh, two
hits, two walks and two errors
giving them the tying runs.
Hardee efforts went for naught
with the bases jammed.
In the top. of the 'eight,
Sebring again used walks and
hits to put four runs on the
board. Hardee was only able to
get one run. Crawford singled
down the left field line and
advanced on a Palmer hit, went
to third on a ground ball and
home on a dropped third strike
with Spencer at bat. Palmer and
Spencer were aboard when the
last out occurred.
DESOTO 9, HARDEE 5
"Garrett (Albritton) pitched
better than the outcome shows.


Cole (Choate) finished. We just
couldn't get them home," said
Rewis. Hardee out hit DeSoto
10 to 5, but lost on the score-
board.
Evans opened with getting to
second on an error. He went to
third on a Royal sacrifice but
was still there two outs later.
DeSoto's leadoff batter likewise
was safe on an error and went
on-to second. He went to third
on the next batter's hit to deep
right and home on the over-
throw.
Hardee left Crawford strand-
ed in the second stanza and
Desoto picked up another run
on a hit batter, walk, and pair of
errors. It was 2-0.
Neither team scored in the
third. Evans singled and stole
second but was left there.
In the fourth, Hardee got its
first tally. Terrell singled to left
field, went to second on a
Winter walk, third on a Craw-
ford hit and home on a Hewett
hit to right center. It was 2-1.
That didn't last long as the
Bulldogs batted around and put
a half dozen runs on the board.
To make it 8-1.
Hardee got two runs in the
fifth on successive hits by John-
son, Terrell, Carter Lambert and
Crawford Desoto added' a run.
Hardee left Hewett stranded in
the top of the sixth and DeSoto
picked up an insurance run.
Hardee plated a pair of runs
in the top of the seventh.
Lambert and Crawford both
singled and rode home on a
Palmer double to deep left. It
was too little, too late, as Har-
dee efforts ended with the third
out.


When I go into my garden with a spade, and dig abed, I feel such an exhilaration and health
that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do'for me what
I should have done with my own hands.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

He's a fellow that's going far -
always one step ahead of his
creditors.
One day the doctor said to him,
I'm sorry to tell you, but you have
a contagious. disease scarlet
fever."
"Great," be answered. "Now I
have something to give 'my
creditors."
But the Living Bible says, "Pay
all your debts except the debt of
love for others-never finish paying
that. For if you love them, you will
be obeying all of God's laws,
fulfilling all of His requirements."
"If you love your neighbor as you
love yourself you will not want to
harm or cheat him, or kill him or
steal from him. Love does nowrong
to anyone."


We have often heard it said "it is darkest right before the dawn".Yet,
we have faith that the light of day will appear. Why? Because it never
fails...there is always a new dawn, God never fails to bring a new day.
You will see a new dawn, no matter how hopeless life seems, when
you have faith in the power of your Heavenly Father. Psalm 139:12
proclaims, "...even the dark ess will not be dark to you, the night will
shine like the day; for darkn ss is as light to you"
Learn of God's limitless power over darkness, visit His House this
week. Pray with God and He ill bring you into the light.

Head Coach John Sharp, as he


COURTESY PHOTO
Second-grade students were given the opportunity to be
fashion'designers this month at Zolfo Springs Elementary
School. The creative reward was' given to those who
reached their Accelerated Reader goal of eight points.
The boys and girls each brought in a white T-shirt to
transform with their imaginations. Markers, paint and
stamps were provided by the teachers. Here, Tyler Teuton
(top photo) and Lauren Gainous (bottom photo) fabricate
their expressive "wears." The new shirts are worn with
pride, and students are already talking about next
month's goal. Stay tuned!


reviewed the week's games.
This week, it was Fort Meade
at home Tuesday at 6 and Lake
Wales at home at 6:30 today
(Thursday). That leaves three
games on the season's schedule,
April 2 home for Avon Park at
6, April 4 at Lake Wales at 6:30
and April 12 the season finale at
Fort Meade.
At Sebring last Tuesday,
Hardee scored first. Devin
Pearson singled and stole his
way around the bases to cross
home. Armando Alamia, scored
in the sixth on a walk, Luke
Winter sacrifice and Jacob
Bolin hit.
Meanwhile, Sebring picked
up a run in the home half of the
second on a pair of hits, a walk
and a sacrifice. The young
Streaks added a run in the third
on hits and sacrifice fly. The
real damage came in a fifth-
inning bat around which includ-
ed hits and a couple of errors.
. Against DeSoto at home on
Thursday night, it was a differ-
ent story. Hardee .spotted the
young Bulldogs a pair of first-
inning tallies and left the bases
jammed. The Bulldogs added


another two runs in the top of
the third.
Hardee got a trio of tallies in
the home half of the third.
Dustin Goodwyn was safe on a
dropped third strike. With two
away, Bolin drew a walk and
Durden followed suit. A Jose
Gonzalez walk pushed a run
home and Eric Klein shoved
another home. In the melee of
stolen bases and what not, the
first three runners came home.,
DeSoto added an insurance
run to make it 5-3 in the top of
the fourth on a hit, stolen base
and error.
Hardee stormed back with a,
seven-run rally in the bottom of
the fourth. Mason Gough start-'
ed it and finished it. Alamia
singled, Bolin was safe on an
error, Tanner Durden 'and
Gonzales both singled. Ezekial
Servin walked. All came home
on steals and overthrows before
Gough made the final out of the
inning. It was now a 10-5 ball
game.
The Bulldogs got a run in the
fifth, but were-not able to add
more and had to go home with
the 10-7 loss.

State Farm Still Leads Tweens


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of games last Monday
was all for the Tweens, 12-and-
under division of Miss Hardee
Softball last week. The rest of
the week was spent preparing
and playing in the Midseason
Miss Florida Softball tourna-
ment last week.
With just a pair of games, the
standings changed very little.
State Farm Insurance leads with
a 4-1 record, CF Industries at 3-
2, Lonestar Construction at 2-3
and KeyPlex at 1-4.
It was a nail-biter in the first
game last Monday. State Farm
held on to nip KeyPlex 9-8.
Leadoff batter Lillian Salazar
and Giselle Benavidez each put
a pair of runs up for State Farm.
Lilianna Ponce, Alayna Car-
ranco, Lilyana Franco, Saman-
tha Velez and Jalen Ureste each
crossed .home plate once: Other
players are Marisa Rodriguez,
Miranda Pearson and Briana
"Mia" Juarez.
KeyPlex countered with a


pair of tallies by leadoff batter
Mallory 'Gough, with solo
scores by Elizabeth McBride,
Alexis McBride, Amari De-
Leon, Carly Nadaskay, Madi-
son Marple and Erica Martinez.
Daisy Badillo and Jasmine
Gonzalez didn't get to home
plate.
In the nightcap, CF stopped
'Lonestar 13-1.
Hannah Revell, Darby San-
ders, Michaela Villarreal and
Alyssa Barber each circled the
bases twice for CF. Nubia
Gomez, Abigail Erekson,' An-
drea McVay, Shauna Norwood
and Jarisa Lindsey each crossed
home once; Anabel Ramos did-
n't get all the way home.
Leadoff batter Hope Elliott
scored the lone run for Lone-
star. Other Lonestar players are
Makayla Benavidez, Julia
Figueroa, Cori Ann Rosales,
Denali Briones, Elena Briones,
Kendra Smith, Deborah Fig-
ueroa, Katie Dayfert and
Valerie Lopez.

How I. have looked for you for so long. When you showed
up the very first day I wanted to shout and sing! Did I shout
and sing when you actually arrived? I did not. But I did feel
so much more alive!

0 Spring! 0 Spring!

Of course, you always bring with you another year for me,
as spring is always the annual birthday (TeeHee).

0 Spring! 0 Spring!

Always enjoy your presence.

Not only do I enjoy your presence, but I enjoy receiving pre-
sents (,not to offend you) but enjoy presents from others also.
Well, spring ode to you always fun to run to and fro in your
warmth from the sun. So much fun in the sun.

Along with spring comes resurrection Sunday, summer fol-
lows and then I can enjoy the big swim and also the big

So, spring ode to you.and everything you bring. With you
and everything that follows you.

Oh, how I love you spring, wish you could stay forever.
Don't leave ever, Never, Ya hear? Dear?

been abandoned, bring them
home. The young deer often die

result, he says. Last year the
GFC took 13 fawns away from
Hardee and DeSoto county res-
idents. One fawn has already
been picked up in DeSoto
County this year.

Hardee Senior High School.
Q: What was school like when you
were in ninth grade?
A: Ninth grade was great for me; it
was mostly full of fun. There were
about 500 kids that attended HHS. I
was a varsity cheerleader in the ninth
grade (quite an accomplishment), and I
was the first freshman ever to make the
Homecoming Court.
Q: How did you get to school and
home each day?
A: I rode the public school bus, with
my brothers, to and from school every
day.

age do for fun?
A: We went to football games, house
parties, and to drive-in restaurants
where we could ride around to see if

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
And, even as He said this,
Judas, one of the twelve dis-
ciples, arrived with a mob
that was armed with swords
and clubs. ... So Judas
camr\ straight to Jesus,
"Greetings Teacher," he
exclaimedand gave Him the
kiss. ... The others grabbed
Jesus and arrested Him.
Matthew 26: 47,49,50b (NLT)
FRIDAY
Arresting Jesus, they
march'e Him off and took
Him to. the house of the
Chief Priest. ... When it was
morning, the religious lead-
ers of the people and the
high priests and scholars all
got together before the High
Council. They asked Him,
"Are you the Messiah?" ...
Jesus answered, "From here
on the Son of Man takes His
place at God's right hand,
the place of power."
Luke 22:54,66,69 (ME)

SATURDAY
Then they all said, "Then are
you the Son of God?" Jesus
said to them, "It is as you
say that I am." Then they
said, "What do we need of
witnesses now? We our-
selves heard Him." ... Then
the whole group stood up
and led Jesus to Pilate, the
governor.
Luke 22:70-71; 23:1 (NCV)

SUNDAY
Then Pilate announced to
the chief priests and crowd,
"I find no basis for a charge
against this man." But they
insisted, "He stirs up the
people, all over Judea by His
teaching. He started in Gal-
ilee." .... When he learned
that Jesus was under
Herod's jurisdiction, he sent
Him to Herod, who was also
in Jerusalem at that time.
Luke 23:4-5a,7 (NIV)

MONDAY
Herod was delighted at the
opportunity to see Jesus, for
he had heard a lot about
Him and had been hoping to
see irm 'perform a, miracle.
He'% ',ked Jesus' question
after question, but there'was
no reply. ... Now Herod and
his soldiers began mocking
and ridiculing Jesus, and
putting a kingly robe on Him,
they sent Him back to Pilate.
Luke 23:9-11 (NLT)

TUESDAY
Pilate told the chief priests
and the people, and said,
"You have brought this man
to me as a mischief-maker
among the people. ....After
examining 'Him in your pres-
ence, I have found nothing
criminal about Him, and nei-
ther hasHerod, for he sent
Him back to us." ... I will
therefore chastise Him and
release Him."
Luke 23:14-15a,16 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
Now at the feast,the gover-
nor was accustomed to re-
lease for the crowd any one
prisoner they wanted....
Pilate said to them, "Whom
do you want me to release
for you, Barrabas or Jesus,
who is called the Christ?"
They said, "Barrabas. Cru-
cify Jesus." ... Pilate said, "I
am innocent of this man's
blood; see to it yourselves."

Our St. Patrick's Day parade
was a big hit, with Grand
Marshal Jack Shanower leading
the parade around the park.
We had a kitchen-band
wagon with six ladies riding,
driven by Claude Longeuell.
All spanked out in green were
Elina Henderson, Jan Parks,
Alice Grooms, Cathy Gaylog,
Emma West and Dorothy
Shanower.
Winnie DeWitt and Frank
and Arlene Hewitt walked their
dogs. Dowayne Parks, Charlie
Gaylog and Charlie West chose
to just walk. Many spectators;
golf carts all decked out.
Beverly and Dick, Ed and
Jackie, Ray and Mary, Dave
and I.
Tom and Mary Ellen, dressed
to the hilt with their green beau-
tiful wigs and their two dogs.
Mary Ellen passed out bags of
candy so that we could throw
them to the crowd as we passed
by. We had a lot of spectators.
First place for each category:
best dressed woman, Elina
Henderson; best dressed man,
'Jack Shanower; best dressed
bike, Audrey Semler; and best
dressed dog, Missy; best deco-
rated golf cart, Dave and
Georgianna Mills in a frogmo-
bile.
An Irish dinner of corned
beef and cabbage was cooked
by Ed and Jackie Hodges and
Tom and Mary Ellen Hopkins,
and, there were many green
dishes and desserts.
Bill Hartigan, Mary Marr and
Gary Hyde did the judging.
SHUFFLEBOARD
We held our second annual

week, with seven teams trying


to win those trophies. It finished

caught up on winning her pen-
nies, after having to go to the

Reid winning.
CRAFTS
Jackie Hodges did a great job
of teaching chalk coloring to
Mary Ellen H6pkins,' Audrey
Semler, -Charlene Cooper
Mary Marr and me. It was easi-
er than I thought. We have a lot
of talent here in the park.
Cathy Gaylog finished the
quilt she was making for her
granddaughter's graduation.
Jan Parks, Susie Frye and
Charlene Copper gave her a
hand, and she was ever so glad.
THE RED HATS
The Red Hats are at it again.
What fun these ladies have
dressed up their purple gar-
ments and red hats! It is always
fun to see what they will wear.
The fun part was having an auc-
tion headed by Patty Lewis.
What a great time.

"Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"
and, "When, the Saints go
Marching in." Linda Gray pro-
vided the accompaniment.
Don Merillat gave the offer-
ing prayer and Lowell Gordon
and Bill Burget collected the
offering. Maxine Stromme was
our faithful greeter.
Pastor Winne's message
asked us if we were looking for
directions in our lives.
Scripture was from Psalms,
Proverbs, Isaiah, John, Deute-
ronomy and Philippians. He
gave us much food for thought.
He emphasized getting in the
Word; praying about every-
thing; that God won't lead us in
the wrong direction; that God
knows the beginning and. the
end; that He has perfect wis-
dom; that He will meet all our
needs and that God does not
want us to be anxious for any-
thing.
The service closed with
prayer by Pastor Bob and con-
gregational singing of "God Be
with You Until We Meet
Again."
