Judge Signs Mosaic Settlement


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Mosaic has cleared its last
legal obstacle and has resumed
mining operations at the South
Fort Meade extension after a
Federal judge signed the settle-
ment reached between the com-
Spany and three environmental"
groups in February.
U.S. District Judge Henry
Lee Adams approved the agree-


ment between Mosaic and the
Sierra Club, People Protecting
Peace River and Manasota-88
on Wednesday of last week,
allowing the company to begin
mining its 10,856-acre exten-


sion in Hardee County.
Russell Schweiss, a Mosaic
spokesman, said the two drag-
lines sitting on the property
already have begun digging, but
noted it will take time to get the


plant back to full production..
Two additional draglines will
cross over County Line Road
into Hardee County in the
future, once the remaining
reserves in Polk County are


depleted.
In the ruling, Adams wrote
the agreement is "fair, reason-
able and in the public interest,"
and it "adequately addresses the
environmental concerns raised


by the plaintiffs."
Mosaic has agreed to avoid.
mining additional wetlands on
the property and to increase its
setbacks from the Peace River
and other streams.
Mosaic also agreed to donate
the recently acquired 4,414-
acre Peaceful Horse Ranch
property in DeSoto County to
the state as a nature preserve,

Courthouse Repairs Begin Anew


By JOAN SEAMAN

What's going on at the court-\
house?
Actually, there's a lot going
to be happening, starting this
month.
Late last month, staff vacated
the first-floor recording office,
moving upstairs to temporarily,
join other staff of Clerk of
Courts B. Hugh Bradley.
It's part of ongoing efforts to
reduce water infiltration on the
north side of the Hardee County

affects the first-floor offices,

SAO: Woman Victimized Elderly Momn


Rivers


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 70-year-old -Wauchula
woman has been accused of
stealing thousands of dollars
from her 89-year-old mother.
Bobbie Jean Rivers of 630
Snell St. was taken into custody
on Wednesday of last week on
an arrest warrant obtained by
Investigator David W. Lyon of
the Economic Crimes Unit at
the State Attorney's Office in
Polk County.
She was charged with theft
from a person 65 years of age or
older in excess of $50,000, a


first-degree felony. Bond was
set at $15,000.
Prosecutors allege Rivers
took advantage of her elderly
mother, taking a total of
$75,459 from her over a three-
year period. The elderly are par-
ticularly vulnerable to such
crimes, they note.
Chip Thullbery, a spokesman
for State Attorney Jerry Hill's
10th Judicial Circuit headquar-
ters in Bartow, said an investi-
gation began after the mother
discovered her funds missing
and closed her bank account.

A phone call from an alert cit-
izen has resulted in the arrest of
an alleged burglary ring and the
recovery of thousands of dollars
in stolen equipment, the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office said.
Detectives attribute around a
dozen or more break-ins to four
adults and one juvenile suspect,
Maj. Randy Dey said. The
thefts span a period of three,
months. .
Arrested to date as the probe
continues are:
Caleb Andrew Chavis, 20,,
of 3516 Hickory St., Zolfo
Springs, seven counts each bur-
glary and grand theft.
Waylon Coe Chester, 19, of
N 5008 Chester Ave., Bowling
e Green, one count each burglary
- and grand theft.
it Thomas Joseph "TJ." Cox,
26, of 4615 Maple Ave., Bow-
.ling Green, seven counts each
burglary and grand theft.
David Rivera, 2p, of 315
SR 62, Bowling Green, six
counts each burglary and grand
theft.
Dey said sheriff's detectives

py had been conducting an investi-
d- gation into several thefts when

a break came in the form of a
phone call from someone who
noticed a strange vehicle in the
neighborhood.
That led to the identification
of Cox and suspicions of his
involvement in numerous bur-
glaries throughout the county
beginning on Jan. 22, the major
said. Barns and storage sheds
were targeted, Dey said, with
the thieves striking at 'night.
Stolen were lawn mowers,
chain saws, generators, firearms
and such, he described.
Most of the property taken by
the suspects has been recov-
ered, he added, and has been
returned to the rightful owners.
Those owners, he said, some-
times were not even aware a
burglary had occurred and that
Sthe.items had been taken. Dey
stressed the importance of vigi-
lance on property owners' parts,.
and of reporting any break-in or
theft. "We cannot solve what
we do not know," he said.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier credit-
ed the concerned citizen for
providing the big break in the
ongoing case. He stressed the
value of the partnership be-
tween citizens and law enforce-
ment. "Together, we can do our

0Congratulations to Kentucky and Baylor for winning the
NCAA men's and women's national basketball titles this week.
This was Kentucky's eighthnational title. Four titles came under
legendary head coach Adolph Rupp, who coached Kentucky from
1930 to 1972 to 876 wins and 27 SEC titles. He died at 76.
The greatest college basketball coach ever was probably John
Wooden who won 10 NCAA championships at UCLA. He coached
the Bruins for 27 years and once had 88 wins in a row and another
time won seven consecutive NCAA titles. Wooden lived to age 99.
I watched Rupp's Wildcats play the Gators a couple of times
in Gainesville in the 1960s. One of his guards had whitish blond
hair and was named Cotton Nash.

Connie Rowe of Wauchula writes to say she does not want the
U.S. Postal Service to stop Saturday mail delivery.

When former Wauchula First Baptist Church Pastor Ken Smith
was a boy, he belonged to the Roy Rogers Riders Club. Roy was a
famous singing Western cowboy who made many movies with his
wife Dale Evans and his horse Trigg'er.
The club's rules were:
1. Be neat and clean.
2. Be courteous and polite.
3. Always obey your parents.
4. Protect the weak and help them.
5. Be brave but never take chances.
6. Study hard and learn all you can.
7. Be kind to animals and take care of them.
8. Eat all your food and never waste any.
9. Love God and go to Sunday school regularly,
10. Always respect our flag and our country.

CO Accused Of


Beating Wife


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A corrections officer at
Hardee Correctional Institution
has been accused of beating his
wife, a lieutenant with Hardee
County Fire-Rescue, following
her altercation with his daugh-
ter.
Ronald Edward Sneider, 45,
of 2308 Oxendine Road, Zolfo
Springs, was arrested by sher-
iff's authorities Sunday morn-
ing and charged with battery, a
first-degree misdemeanor.
He is accused of beating
Nancy. Sneider, 44, at about
3:30 a.m. that day, Maj. Randy
Dey said.
According to a report by Dep.
Steve Ahrens, the Sneiders ear-
lier had been at his brother's
house in Highlands County.
While there, Nancy Sneider
became involved in an argu-
ment with her 15-year-old step-
daughter, reportedly exchang-
ing pushes and slaps.
Nancy Sneider told authori-
ties she went home..
But Ronald Sneider allegedly
returned to their home at about
3:30 a.m.,and began to argue
with his wife over the High-
lands County incident. He
punched her in the face with a
closed fist, she alleged, and
dragged her by the hair.
The wife left the home, call-
ing an adult son as she sat in her
vehicle in the Wal-Mart parking
lot. The son notified sheriff's
deputies.


Sneider


Nancy Sneider's left eye was
swollen shut, her right temple
and forehead were swelling, she
had scratches on her knees, a
bruise on her upper left arm and
was bleeding from her hairline
where a small patch of hair had
been pulled out, Ahrens alleg-
edly observed.
She reported scratching her
husband in self-defense as she
tried to get away from him,
according to the report.
Dey said Ronald Sneider was
located at the couple's home'
later that morning. He denied
battering anyone, the major
said.
The deputy on scene, howev-
er, noticed scratches on his face
and red marks on his right hand
and knuckle area. Further
investigation led to the charge
against Ronald Sneider and his
arrest.

GOOD NEIGHBOR OR NOSEY NEIGHBOR?
Most people have the feeling if they call the police on their.
neighbors :or suspicious activity in their neighborhood they are
being nosdy neighbors. The fact of the matter is it's not being a
nosey neighbor, it's being a good neighbor.
Image this: You see what appears to be someone in your neigh-
bor's yard acting suspicious that you've never seen in your neigh-
borhood before and your neighbor doesn't appear to be home, but
you just blow it off anyway. Later in the day, you see the police at
your neighbor's house and find that their house has been burglar-
ized..
If this were your house, would you want your neighbor to not
call? f
Image this: It's the middle of the night and you see an indi-
vidual walking down the street wearing dark clothing. You know.
that this person does not live in the neighborhood and you've never
seen them before. You decide, "What's the big deal; they're just
walking down the street?" The next morning you see the police at
your neighbor's house. It appears sometime over the night some-
one broke into their car.
If this were your car, would you have wanted your neighbor to
not call?
Image this: It's the middle of the day and you see a vehicle and
an individual in your neighbor's yard you've never seen there
before, and it appears your neighbor's not home. About an hour
after the vehicle leaves, you decide something just didn't appear to
be right so you call the police. The police arrive to find your neigh-
bor's house has been broken into.
If this were your house, wouldn't you have wanted your neigh-
bor to call while the vehicle was still there? Calling later is still
better then not calling at all. If this is the case, try to give a good
description of the vehicle, tag number, and its occupants if possi-
ble.
Sometimes people can be wrong and nothing bad is happen-
ing, but way too many people just don't want to get involved
because they don't want to deal with the police. Suspicious activ-
ity can be reported anonymously.
You may not want to get involved, but people work too hard
to have their belongings stolen by crooks that haven't done the
same. Police are out patrolling all hours of the day and night, but
they :can'tbe everywhere all the time; plus, no one knows a neigh-,
borhood better than the people who live in it,.. ..

THE TRUTH ABOUT HEART DISEASE RISK FACTORS
Did you know that heart disease the number one killer of
women is largely preventable?
Coronary heart disease is a condition in which plaque gradu-
ally builds up inside your coronary arteries. These arteries supply .
oxygens-rich blood to your heart muscle. Over time, plaque hardens
and can narrow your coronary arteries, or the plaque can rupture
(break open) and cause a blood clot to form on its surface, both of
which an limit blood flow.
S I.When the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your heart muscle is
reduced or blocked, angina or a heart attack may occur.
Thanks to decades of research supported by the National
Heart, Lung & Blood Institute, we now understand the key risk fac-
tors for heart disease. While there are some risk factors youcan't
control such as older age, gender and family history of coronary
heart disease there are many risk factors that you can control,
such as high blood cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, smok-
ing, diabetes, overweight or obesity, and physical inactivity.
By adopting a healthy lifestyle, you can prevent or delay your
risk.for heart disease. Here are six steps you can take, starting
today:
Eat right. Follow a healthy eating plan, which can help pre-
vent or reduce high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol and
help .you maintain a healthy weight. Enjoy a variety of fruits and
vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, poultry without skin, sea-
food, and fat-free or low-fat milk and dairy products. Limit salt,
added sugars, solid fats and refined grains.
Be physically active. Pick activities you like and do each for
atleast 10 minutes at a time. Every bit adds up, and health benefits
increase as you spend more time being active. Adults should get 2-
1/2 hours or more a week of activity that requires moderate effort,
such as brisk walking.
Maintain a healthy weight. If you are overweight or obese,
'work with your doctor to create a reasonable weight-loss plan. A

Hardee County. Their long-
range plans will result in a pro-
found alteration of the natural
habitat and drainage patterns of
more than 100,000 acres of land
in this county and the elimina-
tion of thousands of agricultural
jobs.)
Note the conditions Mr.
Brennick cited that make his
location desirable: "... the rural
and peaceful setting" of his
institute, "... and the peace and
serenity it offers [the] clients."
I hope the lesson that our
local decision-makers (BOCC
and Planning Board) will take
home from this confrontation is
that peace and serenity are
assets for .attracting certain
desirable businesses and devel-
opments to our county.
For the most part agricultural
land-use is compatible with
these assets, but phosphate min-
ing .is not, by the nature of its
operation and treatment of the
land, peaceful or serene.
The same issues were at stake
in a recent mine hearing in
Bradenton as voiced by the peo-
ple of Winding Creek subdivi-
sion when they found out that
Mosaic had intentions of
expanding their mining opera-
tion on the adjacent Wingate
Creek Mine.
People generally consider the
constant drone of pumps, the
24/7 operations of draglines and
the resultant air and light pollu-
tion, alteration of groundwater
flow, the threat of dam breaches
and flooding a, detriment to
their quality of life.
I wish Mr. Brennick best of
luck as the court hands down a
decision.
I hope our county leaders will
familiarize themselves with the
underlying issues in this lawsuit
and how they will affect our
future as we seek economic
growth and stability as a county
moving forward.

JOYCE A. JAMISON
Joyce A. Jamison was called to her reward on Wednesday,
Feb. 15, 2012, and laid to rest on a beautiful sunny day in
Wauchula by members of her family and many of her dear
friends. There, she joins her husband, William; and .parents
Clera and Alonzo Lanigan.
It was, of course, to be to Wauchula
that she would one day return, having
always a fondness for that place of her
birth. Born there on April 29, 1929,
Ms. Joyce lived and loved central
Florida and such places as Arcadia, "^
Bartow and Fort Meade, and smiled
sweetly when recollecting days along ". ,
the Peace River.
Ms. Joyce was by nature and nuture
a strong woman, defining the term
which would become fashionable years later. Possessed of a
calm, though gritty, determination.inherited from her parents
and a gentle inner peace acquired from her practiced Christian
faith, these qualities would secure her well through a long and
adventurous life.
After graduating from Hardee County High School in 1947,
Ms. Joyce entered the post-war workforce and through the 50s
and 60s was employed by J. W. Earnest Department Store, The
Palmetto Clinic, and Hardee County as a deputy sheriff.
It was at Armour Agricultural Chemical in Bartow she met
William Jamison, an FBI agent who was to become her hus-
band.
In 1966 the couple were married and before long Ms. Joyce
was living in Hong Kong as the ex-patriate wife of a retired
Navy Lieutenant and current special agent of the FBI assigned
to duty in Viet Nam. Once, while visiting her husband in
Saigon, Ms. Joyce's confidence and strength were surely at full
power as army troops rolled and artillery shells exploded while
in the city.
When time had been served, the Jamisons set out for a fan-
tastic journey across the globe: Egypt, Greece, Italy, Spain and
places in between. Later, the couple settled in Washington,
D.C., living and working there during the political turbulence of
the 70s. After several years there, they were moved to Cocoa
Beach where William became a special investigator for NASA
and Ms. Joyce happily took up residence again in Florida!
By 1981 the Jamisons were nearing 15 years of a wonderful
marriage and looking forward to an exciting retirement.
Throughout, Ms. Joyce was a loving wife, true friencand loyal
confidante.
Early into retirement Ms. Joyce's strength would be tested
again as her husband was diagnosed with colon cancer. During
his three-year battle she would b ret for him, at his. side as a
constant caregiver, relentless positive force, and loving patient
wife, never complaining, ever vigilant, knowing "it was in
God's hands."
Widowed and residing in St. Pete Beach, Ms. Joyce believed,.
"This is'the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in
it." She had many friends and acquaintances. She treated all
people as equals and lived a life of "loving kindness." 1,-.. -.
. She thought of others before herself, giving more than ever
was asked..She was a seasonal volunteer for Hospice. She suf-
fered her blindness and other infirmities with dignity and grace;
and always without complaint.
In 2006, Ms. Joyce began her own battle with cancer, win-
ning it for years until in its insidious way returned advanced,
aggressive and painful. She had "fought a good fight." Her
sealed fate, however, did not change her; still thinking of oth-
ers, thanking those attending her, smiling through the pain,
believing "this too shall pass."
Ms. Joyce was a woman with remarkable wit, sharp mind and
unyielding courage. She was a gentle lady who set a wonderful
example. From her example we learn, and when we learn we
remember.
And, in this month of her birth, we may say "Happy Birthday
Joyce" or "Farewell dear friend," but in any voice and with any
words we say we miss you and will remember you.
She is survived by her friends and her brother William
Lanigan of Tallahassee, and his extended family

PAINT THE TOWN PURPLE!
Welcome back to We C.A.R.E. This month, I am bringing you a
guest columnist. This article was written by DeAnna Mullins, our
Relay for Life luminaria chair.
It's time to start watching for lots of purple to be prevalent in
town. Relay for Life, which is the major fundraising arm of the
American Cancer Society, has purple as its signature color, and the
big Relay for Life event will take place here April 27-28, beginning
at 6 p.m. on Friday at Wildcat Stadium on South Florida Avenue.
This community-based event is open to everyone no admis-
sion fees at all! Not only will there be fun, food, games and enter-
tainment, but there are also many meaningful moments throughout
the 18-hour event.
Twenty-five teams have been working hard to raise funds and
prepare their campsites. This year's theme is "Serving Up a Cure,"
so each team has selected a cooking theme.
Every Relay for Life event has three main sections: Celebrate,
Remember, Fight Back. The Celebrate section recognizes cancer
survivors. They will be wearing purple shirts and, after walking
once around the track followed by some of their caregivers and
being cheered on by the entire crowd, they will be treated to a very
special luncheon.
The fun begins as the DJ keeps things hopping. There will be
plenty to eat and lots of special things to buy plus games to play,
including a dunk tank! Entertainment by local artists adds to the
excitement.
At 10 p.m. Friday, the "Remember" part begins, also called
the Luminary Ceremony. The stadium lights will go out as the
luminaria bags are lighted. These are white bags decorated to honor
a cancer survivor or remember a loved one who has lost hisbattle.
You probably know someone like this, so come out and decorate
your own bag!

The fun continues through the night. Dedicated teams
realize that cancer never sleeps, so activities continue all night, sig-
nifying the never-ending battle to fight cancer. The closing cere-
-'monies between 11 a.m. and noon Saturday conclude with the
"Fight Back" final lap -- a commitment to fight the battle until the
next Relay for Life event in 2013.
Start wearing your purple the week of April 9 to help
Paint the Town Purple! Businesses can put purple signs, banners,
flowers, bows, etc. in their windows to help, also.
If interested in a luminaria, the deadline is April 20. If you
would like to have your loved one's picture on the big screen dur-
ing the Luminaria Ceremony, please submit your luminaria form,
donation and photo prior to Friday, April 20. This will allow us
time to create the Powerpoint which will be shown during the cer-
emony. Pictures need to have the name of the person in the photo
as well as whether the picture is for an "In Memory of" or "In
Honor of" on the back of the photo.
Luminaries that are purchased after April 20 all the way up
until the early registration hours of the Relay for Life event on the
27th will line the inside of the track. If you don't purchase a lumi-
naria before April 20, it is not guaranteed that the name of the per-
son it is being purchased for will be able to be in the presentation
at 10 o'clock on the 27th.
For more information, contact Denise Benavides at 866-739-
5288 or the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345. See you
on April 27!


Welcomes

Kortney Stivender Reddick

It seems that a good vet is
always needed. The problem
is the lack of them. Folks
want someone they can de-
pend on, someone who isn't
just working because they
have to, but a veterinarian
who has a love -and deep
rooted passion for animals.
Mrs. Kortney Stivender Red-
dick fits that bill to a.tee.
Kortney grew up in High-
lands County and attended
Sebring High Schobl. She
was active in FFA, where she
ra served as Reporter on the of-
ficer team and participated on
the Livestock judging team for
three years. She also showed hogs and steers in the annual
Highlands County Fair. After graduation, Kortney went on to
pursue her dream of becoming a veterinarian by attending un-
dergraduate school at the University of Florida from 2005-2007,
where she obtained her Bachelor Degree in Animal Science.
While there, she participated in Block and Bridle. She then at-
tended Oklahoma State University from 2007-2011. Once there,
she was an active member of the American Association of
Equine Practitioners and the American Association of Bovine
Practitioners. She received her Doctorate in Veterinary Medi-
cine in 2011.
"I really got involved and wanted to be a veterinarian be-
cause of the large animal aspect. I always showed animals in
the fair and I worked for small animal vet when I was in high
school. Once I got into college, I did an internship at Ridge
Large Animal in Sebring and at Okeechobee Veterinary Hospi-
tal with Dr. Harvey. Being involved with animals is what I love
and know I am meant to do," Kortney says.
With her veterinary license freshin her hand, Kortney will
be working at Pet Care Center with Dr. Ross Hendry every Moh-
day. The rest of the week, she will be operating her own large
animal practice, Peace River Large Animal.
"I am thrilled to -be operating my own large animal prac-
tice. It is something that I have always aspired to do. I am also
excited to be working with Dr.-Hendry on Mondays; he has been
such a tremendous inspiration and mentor to me," Kortney
adds.
Along with working at Pet Care Center and op rating
Peace River Large Animal, Kortney still manages to fian d time
for friends and family. She recently got married in November
to Lee Reddick, who grew up in Hardee County. They Oow re-
side in Wauchula, where Kortney plans to pursue her djeam of
firmly establishing Peace River Large Animal.
"About a year ago, my wife and I went and had lutsch with.
Kortney. What came in was a pretty girl with a sweet litke voice
that said 'I want to be a cow doctor'. I laughed and told her she
could bejust that. She has come so far and I am so prou iof her
accomplishments. She has a zeal and excitement for htr work
that you don't see in a lot of veterinarians," Dr. Heiylry ex-
plains.
With her new business, Peace River Large Animal, up and
running, Kortney is eager to begin serving the community. She
is available any time and is looking forward to not only working
with the animals, but meeting new faces as well. She can be
reached via phone at 941-832-4008.

Flood Zone Changes Values


Lady 'Cats Start Home Streak


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
At an open house, some peo-
ple learned their property's
nearness to water could affect
their property value, insurabili-
ty and more.
Anyone along the 21 creeks
and' rivers in Hardee County
could find a change in the pro-
posed flood zone and its effects
on what they can and can't do
on their property. For those who
have built in what will be a
flood zone, there will be a
"grandfather" clause to keep
their homes intact.
At the March 20 meeting,
residents were given over two
hours to come, browse through
maps and information and stop
at any one of various stations to
ask questions.
Basically, people have 90
days, until mid-June to file an
appeal or protest of the designa-
tion of their properties or the
procedure to change flood zone
maps, which will become effec-
tive by the summer of 2013






......


after all information is gath-
ered.
People who were unable to
go to the open house can go to
www.watermatters.org/flood-
risk to view maps showing the
existing and proposed 100-year
flood zone.
The flood zones haven't
changed in 30 years but water
flow and drainage patterns, ero-
sion and land use have changed
riverine flooding possibilities.
The proposed map addresses
properties along Alligator
Branch, Bear Branch, Big
Slough, Buzzard Roost Run,
Charlie Creek, Hickory Creek,
Hickory Stream, Hog Branch,
Horse Creek, Limestone Creek,
Little Charlie Creek, Max
Branch, Oak Creek, Payne
Creek, Peace River, Sand Gully,
Thompson Branch, Trouble-
some Creek, two unnamed
rivers and an unnamed stream.
The National Flood Program
provides rating options, flood
hazard rate maps, describing the
risk for flooding so business


and property owners can make
decisions about protecting their
properties in the event of a 100-
year flood event.
The maps, with property-spe-
cific information, are based on
changes in vertical elevation of
lands adjacent to water. Con-
struction has to be above that
vertical line. In oti, -'ords, fill
dirt or re-locating of a proposed
house or business may be need-
ed to meet the new zones.
In Hardee County, the differ-
ence between old and new ver-
tical information varies from
1.13 feet to 0.90 feet. A conver-
sion factor derived from this is
1.01 feet, the distance above the
ground level on which a build-
ing could be considered safe.
Before putting a building on
it, the land may need to be sur-
veyed to show where it stands
on elevation factors. The local
Planning or Building offices
will be able to provide informa-
*tion or it is available at the
above-noted website.

which will 'continue until the
final game of the season.

(Wednesday) in a varsity-only
game against All Saints. The
only senior is Courtney Parks.

Karina Fernandez and Arissa
Camel. The largest varsity
group is sophs, Anna Galvez,
Karlee Henderson, Addison
Aubry, Sabrina Hernandez,
Kendall Gough, Rachel Coker
and Caryssa Johnson. The
freshmen are Alex Ullrich,
Makayla Deuberry, Kim Der-
ringer and Jakayshia Lindsey.
The Hardee girls have been
busy in recent weeks. A 1-0 loss
at home .against Sebring on
March 20 began the second sea-
son, after the Spring Break.
Hardee just couldn't get runners
home in the tough ballgame.
Sebring's only score came in
the fourth inning when Tayla
Dastelli singled and rode home
on the wings of a Dina Lower
triple.
Hardee played an equally
tough game at home against
Frostproof on March 22, win-
ning again 3-2 as they had in
Frostproof early in the season.
Frostproof scored a run in the
first on a hit, a walk and an
error. Hardee was four up, three
down.
Neither team scored again
until the top of the sixth, when
the Lady Bulldogs plated anoth-
er run on a single, double and
sacrifice.
In the home half of the sixth,
Hardee got busy. Derringer
opened with a double and
advanced on an Aubry sacrifice.
Ullrich was safe on an error
which let Derringer come
home. Henderson singled to
score Ullrich. When a Deuberry

He,.per broke'Al,^,tied tp
give Hardee the 3-2 lead. Frost-
proof went down in order in the
top of the seventh to end the
game.
Last week included a pair of


hard district encounters. The
varsity lost 7-2 at Lake Wales
on Tuesday and 9-1 at Auburn-
dale on Thursday. On Tuesday,
Hardee got its pair of runs in the
top of the seventh. Gough sin-
gled to right field and moved
along on a Camel sacrifice and
another by Hernandez. Johnsoni
stepped up and singled to score
Gough and rode home on hits
by Derringer and Aubry.
Against Auburndale, Har-
dee's only run came in the sec-
ond inning. Henderson was safe
on an error and raced home on a
Coker hit.
The JV Lady 'Cats have been
just as busy. They traveled to
Bradenton Southeast to play a
post-Spring Break game on
March 19, winning 21-0. In the
first inning, Hardee used 14 bat-
ters to take an insurmountable
11-0 advantage. Eight more
runs came in the second and a
final pair in the third inning.
Freshman Breanna Godwin
struck out six in three innings.
She and Brooke Dixon each
scored twice in the first inning.
In the second, it was Tiffany
Flores with a pair of trips to
home plate.
By the time the dust settled,
Flores, Kourtney Henderson
and Anjelica Jackson had all
made three trips around the
base paths.
The JV girls lost 8-3 to
Sebring on Tuesday, March 20.
The first run came in the home
half of the first frame. Flores
doubled to right center to score
Godwin, who had walked.
Hardee added two more scores
in the third inning. With two
away, Maria Moralez walked
and Nancy Sanchez was hit by a
pitch. Henderson and Isabel
Abel hits pushed the first two
teammates across home plate.

Letter To The Editor

Local Lady Speaks Out

About Domestic Violence


Dear Editor:
Domestic Violence knows no
bounds. It is no respecter of per-
sons. It comes in many forms
and a wide variety of colors:
black, blue, yellow, and a love-
ly shade of purple (after a few
days).
Enough of that ... domestic
violence is no laughing matter.
It kills! Maybe not the first time
nor the second, you could be
very lucky and live through a
good pounding once or even
twice.
Many are not that lucky.
Domestic violence strikes one
in three .people, and someone
suffers at the hands of someone
else every three minutes in
America ... that is reported.
These statistics are only from
reported incidents. What is not
reported, we don't know about.
There are early warning signs
of domestic violence. It usually
starts out very subtle. At first
you may think it's cute when he
calls to see where you are, just
checking to see if you're okay.
Or maybe just wondering what.
you're up to or who you're with
or where you are going or
where you have been, etc. One
day it just blows up iOi your
face, and you wonder what hap-
pened because you really
haven't done anything wrong.
Really.
Domestic violence abusers
are mostly very insecure peo-
ple. They often are victims of
abuse themselves and don't see
anything wrong with it. Not all
abusers have been abused them-
selves. Some just have unre-


solved anger and tend to take it
out on those closest to them. It's
always the ones they love that
are hurt the most.
Assault is a verbal abuse.
Many people live everyday lis-
tening to someone put them
down and degrade them and
shrug it off, "well at least he
doesn't beat on me". Folks let
me tell you something. I've
been beaten and I've been ver-
bally abused, and I stayed in it
for a long, long time, believing
that it would get better ... it did-
n't ... as painful as the beatings
were ... the bruises healed ...
my heart hasn't completely
recovered.
It is only through the love of
Christ that I found the strength
to believe in myself again and
that I wasn't the worthless piece
of junk that I was told I was. I
suffered many more years ,of
addiction trying to drown out
the words that had been spoken
into my spirit.
My life became so unman-
ageable that many times I want-
ed to die because I thought
everyone would be so much
better off without me to worry
about.
Sitting in a prison cell it
became apparent to me that
God truly had a plan. I began to
think about His Word and much
more His spoken Words ... I
thought, if God SPOKE the
whole world into existence (and
He did) and His Word says that
greater things shall we do than
that of His own Son (and we
shall) then how much more


Week Ending: April 1,2012
Weather Summary: Temperatures this week are warmer than
usual. According to the National Oceanic and AtmosphericAdmin-
istration, temperatures averaged one to nine degrees above normal.
In Tallahassee and Pensacola, temperatures' were six and nine
degrees above normal, respectively. Highs were in the 80s, lows
ranged between the 40s and 60s. Drought conditions did not
change from the previous week with 52 percent of the State expe-
riencing severe to exceptional drought conditions. Mild precipita-
tion took place with most Florida Automated Weather Network
Stations recording less than an inch of rain with the exception of
three stations: Alachua (2.98 in.), MacClenny (1.94 in.), and
Hastings (1.36 int). .Gounty extension agerits and farmers through-
out Florida reported dry soil conditions.
Field Crops: Farmers in northern Florida were preparing
fields for cotton and peanuts. Levy County producers were plant-
ing peanuts, but planting in other counties had not started. In
Washington County, over half of the corn crop was planted. Low
soil moisture in. Washington and other northern counties slowed
planting of field crops. A mild winter and warm weather provided
ideal growing conditions for Pigweed and Lambsquarters and pro-
ducers were weighing their options.for controlling these weeds. In
Columbia County, powdery mildew has affected wheat production.
Light potato harvesting took place. Rice planting has begun in
Palm Beach County.
Fruits & Vegetables: Hot, windy, and dry weather has in-
creased irrigation demands for vegetable crops. Late blight was
present in tomato plants in southern Florida. In Miami-Dade
County, mites were problematic for some vegetable crops.
Vegetable harvesting in the south continued. AMS market move-
ment included blueberries, snap beans, cabbage, celery, sweet corn,
cucumber, eggplant, endive, escarole, bell peppers, radishes,
squash, strawberries, and tomatoes. According to AMS, blueberry
market movement was expected to increase while the strawberry
harvest seasonally declined.
Cattle and -Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition im-
proved over the previous week, with more pasture in good and
excellent condition. However, above normal temperatures and con-
tinued dry weather limited forage growth. The condition of the cat-
tle was mostly fair, with fewer cattle in poor condition, but also
fewer cattle in good condition. In the Panhandle, the condition of
pasture was fair to excellent. The cattle condition ranged from poor
to excellent, with most in good condition. In the northern areas,
most pasture and cattle were in fair condition. In the central areas,
most pastures were in fair condition, with the condition varied from
very poor to good. Soils were warm due to the mild winter, but pas-
ture growth was slow due to lack of rainfall. Most of the cattle were
in fair to good condition. In the southwestern areas, the pasture
condition ranged from very poor to good with most in poor to fair
condition. Most of the cattle were in fair to good condition.
Equine: There was concern about the high potential of cases
of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile virus due to
the high population of mosquitoes this early in the year.
Citrus: Temperatures were moderate with highs reaching the
mid to upper 80s in most of the citrus region. Rainfall was light
across the region. Alachua received the most with 2.98 inches and
was the only station to record more than an inch of rain. Putnam
Hall came close with 0.97 inches. The remaining twenty three sta-
tions recorded less than a half-inch of rain with six recording no
precipitation at all. Drought conditions existed across the entire cit-
rus region, ranging from abnormally dry on the eastern coast to
severe on the west coast. Drought conditions were per the U.S..
Drought Monitor, last updated Mar 27, 2012. The Valencia harvest
continued to average over 5 million boxes weekly. Abundant pea-
sized and larger fruit was visible as the new crop progresses.
Harvesting and young tree care was the primary grove activities at
this time.

powerful are our words when
we speak them to other people.
If words were not important
then why is James, Chapter
three even in the Bible?
Hmmmmm.
Battery is by law "'touch or
strike" to paraphrase the statute,
and battering another person is
enough to send you to jail. Get
arrested enough times and
you'll go to prison but that
doesn't solve the problem ... it
only makes it.worse.
In prison, people actually get
paid to verbally assault you on a
daily basis. It's perfectly nor-
mal for a prison guard, whether
an officer or even the warden,
to tell you what a piece of crap
you are. The only difference is
that they are wearing a uniform
and a badge when they curse
you.
Now, don't take this out of
context. I am not talking about
our law enforcement officers
here in our community. As a
matter of fact, I have probably
been more verbally abusive to
them in the past more than I like
to admit if the truth be told! I
am, however, speaking from
experience about many of the
correctional officers that I had
the unfortunate pleasure of
knowing.
We are living in very trying
times. The economy is bad. The
president is bad (we elected
him, by the way). Every day,
there are people dying at the
hands of another human being.
We don't have to go to war to
kill people. It happens in our
neighborhoods ... in our homes
... it's not getting any better, it's
getting worse. Imagine that?
Think it not strange when these
calamities come upon, you... I
heard that somewhere.. .haven't
you?
I've spent a great deal of my
life in drug or alcohol-induced
fog. Just living for the high, liv-
ing for the moment and now the
moment is gone! I woke up and
my family was nearly gone ...
the one person-I thought would
be with me forever was gone ...
in an instant! My boy is a man;
and I am an old lady. What hap-
pened?
Life. Life happened. Life
goes on and we live and learn
and if we are lucky we live to
see our children live and learn.
Mostly we just want to live to
see another day.
If you know someone who is
being abused or someone who
is abusing someone else ... talk
to them, if possibly. Trd-help.
Male or female, it doesn't mat-
ter, like I said before, domestic
violence is no respecter of per-
sons.
I spoke of my experience,
yours could be different. He,
she, it, whoever, don't let things
get out of hand. Make a differ-
ence in someone's, life now.
Be a lifeline while there's still
breath in you. Call someone
you love right now before time
runs out. Do it. Now!

Harvest Leads Belles


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A pair of double-headers was
the only action in the Belles or
16-and-under Miss Hardee
Softball last week.
At the end of Saturday,
Harvest Aviation was up 6-2,
JLC Harvesting at 2-1 and
George Wadsworth Insurance
(GWI) still looking to win.
The doubleheader last Mon-
day was between GWI and
Harvest, which won both
games, 10-7 and 9-5.
In game one, Harvest got
triple tallies from leadoff batter
Breanna Godwin, dual scores
from Shayna Harned and solo
runs from Gemi Saunders, Josie
Moore, Ariana Ramos, Anahi
Salgado and Cheyanne Gough.
Brianna Aleman and Cristina
Rodriguez added to the game.
For GWI, Morgan Walters
and Anna Erekson each put a
pair of runs on the board. Brook
Dixon, Lacey Cumbee and
Allison Farr each chipped in
with a run. Amber Dayfert,
Amanda Bandy, Yesenia Perez
and Dasmine McMillian didn't
get home and Mika Delatorre
didn't play in this game.


For game two. Harned.
Moore and Ramos were twin-
tally batters. Godwin, Saunders.
Aleman and Gough each added
a run. For GWI, it was Walters
as the only two-score batter and
Erekson. Dayfert. Dixon and
Dasmine each adding a run.
The other double-header, on
Saturday. was a split. JLC
downed Harvest 12-2 in the

RECOMMENDED VACCINATIONS FOR SENIORS
Dear Savvy Senior
What types of vaccinations are recommended for seniors? I
know about flu shots, but what else is recommended and what's
covered by Medicare?
Cheap Shot Sally
Dear Sally
Most people think that vaccinations are just for kids, but
adults, especially seniors, need their shots too. Here's a breakdown
of what vaccines the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) recommends for adults age 50 and older, and how they are
covered by Medicare. "
Influenza (flu): While you already kno' that seasonal flu
shots are recommended to everyone age 50 and older, you may not
know that seniors over 65 now have the option of getting a new
high-potency flu vaccine instead of a regular flu shot. This vaccine
is known as the Fluzone High-Dose creates a stronger immune
response for better protection. All annual flu shots .are covered
under Medicare Part B.
Pneumococcal: Pneumonia causes more than 40,000 deaths in
the U.S. each year, many of which could be prevented by the pneu-
mococcal polysaccharide vaccine. Everyone age 65 or older needs
to get this one-time vaccination, as well as those under 65 who
smoke or have chronic health conditions like asthma, lung and
heart disease, diabetes, or a weakened immune system. This vacci-
nation is also covered under Medicare Part B.
Zoster (shingles): Recommended for everyone age 60 and
older, shingles is a painful, blistering skin rash that affects more
than I million Americans each year. All Medicare Part D prescrip-
tion drug plans cover this one-time vaccination, but coverage
amounts and reimbursement rules vary depending on where the
shot is given. Be sure you check your plan. If you are not covered
you can expect to pay between $150 and $250.
Tdap (tetanus-diphtheria-pertussis): A one-time dose of the
Tdap vaccine which covers tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis
(whooping cough) is now recommended to all adults. If you have
already had a Tdap shot, you should return to getting a tetanus-
diphtheria (Td) booster shot every 10 years. Most private health
and Medicare Part D plans cover these vaccinations, but if you
have to pay, they cost between $20 and $100.
MMR (measles, mumps and rubella): Anyone born during
or after 1957 that is unsure about their immunization history should
receive the MMR shot. A blood test can tell whether someone has
had any of these diseases or has received the MMR vaccine, but a
test costs approximately $100. If you're unsure about your immu-
nity, getting a booster shot is more cost-effective (around $50 and
is usually covered by insurance) and isn't harmful, even if you're
already immune.
Hepatitis A: This is a two-dose series of shots recommended
to adults age 50 and older that have chronic liver disease, a clot-
ting-factor disorder, have same-sex male partners, illicit injectable
drug use, or who have close contact with a hepatitis A-infected
individual or who travel to areas with a high incidence of hepatitis
A. These shots cost anywhere from $60 to $300, but are covered by
most health and .Medicare prescription drug plans.
Hepatitis B: This three-dose series is recommended to adults
50 and older who are on dialysis, have renal disease or liver dis-
ease, are sexually active with more than one partner, have a sexu-
ally transmitted disease or HIV. These vaccinations are covered
under Medicare Part B.
Meningitis: Adults 55 and younger who have never been vac-
cinated, have had their spleen removed, have certain blood defi-
ciencies or plan to travel to parts of the world where meningitis is
common, should receive the meningococcal conjugate vaccine.
Adults 56 and older should receive the polysaccharide vaccine.
Covered by most health and Medicare Part D plans, this shot will
.cost around $100 to $150 if you have to pay out-of-pocket.
To help you get a handle on which vaccines are appropriate for
you, take the CDC "What Vaccines Do You Need?" quiz at
www2.cdc.gov/nip/adultimmsched. Also, talk to your doctor dur-
ing your next visit about what vaccinations you should get.

Light One Candle
By Tony Rossi
The Christophers


DEAN KOONTZ, THE CATHOLIC
Describing Dean Koontz as a popular author of suspense nov-
els is an understatement. His books have been published in 38 lan-
guages and have sold more than 400 million copies worldwide.
But what I discovered when I read his book "Brother Odd" a
few years ago was that you can enjoy a Koontz story strictly for its
engaging characters and plot or. if you read it through a spiritual
lens, you can appreciate it on an even deeper level.
One of the main reasons for that is the fact that the author con-
verted to the Catholic faith many years ago. During an interview
with me on my radio show "Christopher Closeup." Koontz
explained. "By the tin e I was going to college. I was looking for a
different path from where I had been. ... I became engaged by the
intellectual rigor that lies behind the Catholic Church. A lot of peo-
ple will possibly laugh at that, but if you know St. Thomas Aquinas
and some of the other famous writers of the church, or laymen who
wrote brilliantly from a Catholic perspective like G.K. Chesterton.
then you understand what I'm talking about."
Koontz's study of Catholic history also taught him that, con-
trary to the modem assertion that religion and science are enemies.
the opposite is true. He said. "Through various times in the Cath-
olic Church, various sciences were founded and encouraged. There
is no distance between (faith and science) except for what people
try to make for political reasons."
Koontz often integrates a Catholic worldview into his stories.
though it's done in subtle ways the reader might not notice. This is
especially true when it comes-to issues dealing with the sanctity of
life. Koontz's interest in these issues developed because he and his
wife, Gerda, have long worked with a charity for people with dis-
abilities called Canine Companions for Independence. The organi-
zation trains service dogs for people who are paraplegic or quadri-
plegic so they can live on their own. The animals also have a great
effect on autistic children.
After working around the disabled, Koontz became troubled at
the world's view of them. He explained, "I saw that a lot of these
people were shunted aside. There are also a lot of people who think
they shouldn't be given medical care. People like Peter Singer
think a disabled child should be allowed to die or should not be
given antibiotics because they have nothing to contribute to the
world. He's an idiot.
"I've never found one (disabled person) who whined or com-
plained like average people do. I've never found one who wasn't
grateful for every good thing that comes their way. And I haven't
found one that wasn't an inspiration to people. If you can inspire
other people by your own courage, you've had a. valuable and
important life. That's why I wish people would stop thinking that
you have to be the perfect physical specimen in order to be worthy
of living. That is far from the truth," said Koontz.
Koontz believes that addressing these issues in story form can
be an effective means of getting the point across without doing any
actual preaching.
He concludes, "You disarm people with a story, you charm


them with humor, and then you let them think about these other
issues. For me. it's a wonderful method by which to promulgate at
least the thought of these things, to make people wonder if they're
really right to think these things."

TREED
Palms, about as ancient as you can get in the tree department,
line the Peace River, taking you back in time to when many of the
bones below you were parts of storybook creatures.
If you look hard and are really lucky, you might find a piece
of amber, sap from another ancient tree, which dripped down into
the water with its prey, a prehistoric bug, to make a resinous time
capsule.
For old trees, though, if we're talking longevity, it's hard to
beat the old knock-kneed bald cypress cousin to the West Coast
sequoias, thousands of years old.
And then, from the east, came men and their wooden ships.
Masts and planks were cut from tall northern trees, while the bent-
wood parts were carved from the twisted branches of live oak.
Then the vessels were made watertight with a generous application
of "pine tar."
Boat-building was a big industry in colonial America.
Soon enough, the harvesting and manufacture of "naval
stores" made its way down from the Tar Heel state through Georgia
to the slash pines of Central Florida, and a new economic force
brought life to this area: the production of turpentine.
Gold, frankincense and myrrh: these second two being resins
from Biblical lands, the first being the dream of tappers of trees and
other rainbow chasers. Pine resin, collected, then heated up like
the sap of the sugar maples up North, gives off "spirits," the prod-
uct of the many stills in the area.
These were legal stills.
Turpentine: labor-intensive work, full of human drama. Zora
Neale Hurston writes about it. Much "gold" changed hands.
And then it all faded away.
New trees made their appearance. Imported golden "Chinese
apples," some by way of the Middle East and Spain, where a "nor-
ange" would become, by way of French, an "orange" sister to
those limes on the old ships, protecting the "tars" and limeyss"
from scurvy as they sailed across the sea.
Peace River Explorations is a non-profit citizens' organization cre-
ated to promote and grow a "clean industry" in Hardee County,
tourism. It markets the county's historical and natural assets,
including fossil hunting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, horseback
riding and more. Volunteers will be needed to man the visitor's cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Wauchula Train Depot.

al qualifying meet today

Carlos Marquez, Tyler Dunlap,
Keyon Brown, Sherman Be-
thea, Robert Navarro, Adsoh
Delhomme and Tristan Lanier;
and freshmen Timmy Steedley,
Keyonte Holley and Luc
Alfred.
Some have had an exception-
al season, with leading weight
lifts. At the Sarasota meet,
Hardee four medal, placing in
the top six for valuable team
points. "I'm very proud of our
team. We had four place in the
top six in their weight class and
a few more right on the verge of
placing in the top six," said
Head Coach Buddy Martin.
Almarez had the only first-
place finish with a 210 bench
and 195 clean & jerk for a 405-


Take Trophy
pound total in his 129-pound
division. Brown was second in
the 238-pound class, with a 305
bench and 270 in the clean &
jerk for a 575 pound-total.
Maxon Delhomme and Mar-
quez each earned fourth-place
points. Delhomme was in the
183-pound class with a 310
bend and 255 clean & jerk for a
565 .total, while Marquez lifted
at 219 pounds, with a 335
bench and a 270 clean & jerk
for a 605 total.
The boys went on to the
Travis Todd and "had their best
meet of the year so far," said
Martin, noting that the runner-
up trophy "is the first team tro-
phy in a long time, maybe
ever." Sebring won the meet,
Hardee was second and LaBelle
third of the 10 teams participat-
ing.
Marquez and Maxon Del-
homme repeated their success
with number one lifts. Marquez
upped his total to 610 pounds
and Delhomme finished at 545
pounds.
Almarez placed second in his
division with a 405 total and
Brown was also second with a
590 total, up 15 pounds from
the previous meet.
At 119 pounds, Navarro was
fourth at a 165 total and Rabon
came in fourth at 154 pounds
with a 480 total.
Sanchez was fifth in the
heavyweight division with a
560 total and Ramirez fifth in
the 199 division with a 450
total.
Baker placed sixth in the,
busy 183-pound division with a
475 total.

with Palmer winning 8-1, Pohl
8-4, Baker 8-1, Oseguera 8-2


and Durrance 8-0. Hardee also

Palmer started it with a 6-2,
6-1 win. Pohl battled hard,
going 6-4, 3-6 and forced a
third set before losing 10-8.

$8,000 from Peace River Electric Cooperative's Opera-
tion Round Up charitable foundation to purchase furni-
ture for its newly-constructed apartment complex. The 17
apartments provide a safe haven for families while help-
ing them to re-establish themselves through counseling,
educational activities and vocational training. Hannah's
House is counting on local community partners to pro-
vide the funding needed to furnish the entire complex.
Along with shelter, Hannah's House provides food, med-
ical assistance, clothing and' transportation to gain
employment or a higher education. Operation Round Up
is made possible by the compassion of PRECO's mem-
ber-consumers. Funds are raised for local worthy indi-
viduals and organizations by "rounding up" monthly
energy bills, on a voluntary basis, to the next dollar.

Greetings from Fort Green!
There is an old adage that
April showers bring May flow-
ers. I sure hope those showers
begin quickly. We went to
Waldo last weekend and it
rained most of the day on the
last day of March. We drove on
1-75 until Ocala and then went
the rest of the way on 301, and
the pastures were very pretty
and green. They evidently have
been receiving rain right along.
If you have never driven that
route, and get the chance, be
sure and take it. The horse
farms are really beautiful, with
the horses galloping over the
pastures or all in a bunch under
the trees.
You would not believe gas is
so expensive judging by the
number of vehicles on 1-75.
Sunday when we were coming,
there was a mass exodus of
motorhomes and fifth-wheels
on 1-75 heading north.
Earl and Mary Bargeron,
Greg, Shuree, Sam and Arden
Rawls and Sherman and I
enjoyed a weekend of Southern
Gospel music at the Dixieland
Music Park in Waldo. Jolene
and Howard Veal were there,
and we had met them when
Randy and Mary Perry were at
Fort Green. They are like old
friends and plan to camp with
us for the next sing. Needless to
say, we all had a good time.
Norma Alejandro went to the
beach with her class last Mon-
day. She had a good time. The
only drawback is they leave
from school and have to be
back by the time school is out.
Not a real lot of beach time but
enough for sunburns!
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Billy
Casey, who made his final jour-
ney last Thursday. His brother,
Tim, and sister, June, had been


to North Carolina the previous
weekend to visit with him
Danielle Nicholson is sched-
uled for surgery on Saturday.
Russell and Janis Henderson
have some health issues. Arthur
Womack is still under the
weather as is Buck Toole and
Mary Samuels. Doris Thornton
had some back surgery dnd it
was a little more extensive than
she had planned on. Kaylee
Hogenauer is better after spend-
ing a day and night in the
Sebring hospital. Please pray
for all of these.
Mike Davis told me he went
fishing and caught quite a few
mullet with a hook and worm
for bait. I only knew one other
person who caught mullet that
way. I worked with a girl in
Jacksonville and she lived on
the water. She said she would
go out to fish and her dachs-
hund went with her, and when a
fish got on the hook the dog
would bark! She said there was
an art to catching mullet on a
cane pole. I thought you always
used a cast net, but since two
people know the art, I guess you
can learn it!
Most of us have seen sandhill
cranes, but we saw a pair with
twins this weekend. The little
ones -are red when first born. I
have seen plenty of single


babies, but don't think I have
ever seen a pair. I have been
told sandhill cranes mate for
life.
Avie and Allen Eures spent
the weekend in Orlando
Alex McGaughey is spending
a few days with his parents.
Brother Steve and Alex were
sunburned Sunday. Alex said it
was from fishing, and they
caught several bass at Hardee
Lakes. I was getting excited for
them when Sherman said you
can't keep any bass, and Alex
confirmed that they had to
throw them back in. Now, that
would be-a heartbreaker to me.
I do like to eat bass.
I hope there is somewhere
this Friday that will be having
special services for Good
Friday. In times past, I have
attended some and they are
always very meaningful.
There will be an Easter egg
hunt at Fort Green Baptist on
Saturday. It will begin at 10
a.m. and end with lunch being
served at 12. We will not have
evening services at Fort Green
on Easter Sunday. If you do not
have anywhere to attend
church, we invite you out for
this special day.
Please pray for one another,
our nation and the military.

4B The Herald-Advocate, April 5, 2012


He Was A Dropout, But


Then Earned
By MEAGAN SHIVERS
Special To The Herald-Advocate
On May 19, 1942, 625 miles away
from Wauchula, Trenton "Trent" James
Swan'son was born. In Gwinnett County,
Ga., a young Trenton Swanson was
born and raised.
Swanson grew up in the same house
all of his life. His father purchased the
house in
Georgia "
before he 0- j1 f1.
was drafted
for the .
Army. The Swanson family moved into
the house when Swanson's' father
returned from the war. Swanson grew
up down a dirt road out in the country.
When asked his fondest memories as a
child, Swanson recalled Thanksgiving
with the family. He stated how he and
his family would have outside affairs
and would end the day with a rabbit
hunt.
Growing up, Swanson's family had
no telephone. In fact, Swanson didn't
even own a telephone until he was mar-
ried. Even then, it was a four-party-line
telephone. What his family did have,
though, was a short-wave radio that his
parents purchased when they got mar-
ried. To this day, Swanson still has in
his possession the short-wave radio that
only got AM and short-wave frequen-
cies.
In addition, the Swanson family
owned a ringer-type washing machine..
"I remember seeing my mother getting
her hand caught in it once," Swanson
commented.
Swanson had a beagle and a fox dog
named Lightfoot, each of he went hunt-
ing with. The Swanson family kept two
to four milk cows and two to four pigs.
They made extra money by selling the
calves. They made their own butter, and
drank the milk from the cows. They
also would eat the pigs.
The first car he could remember
his family owning was a '46
Chevrolet in 1940. In either 1943 or
1944 his family owned a Chevrolet
coupe with a rumble seat. The first car
'Swaisriiio owned for himself was a 1939"
Chevrolet, and it cost a mere $150. --.
Don't you just love the wonderful
"when I was your age" -stories that your
grandparents would tell you? Even a
young Trenton Swanson did! His grand-
parents would tell him stories about
their youth. His grandpa would tell him
stories about picking Swanson's grand-
mother up in a buggy on a leisurely
Sunday afternoon and going for a ride!
Swanson's grandmother would tell him
stories about riding their family's mule
back from the field after plowing the
field had been completed.
In his youth, Swanson's first job was
when he was only 12 or 13 years of age
Growing up in Georgia, there were
many cotton fields. Can you image
what his first job was then? Measuring
cotton, of course! Making a whopping
$1.50 a day!
He and his friends would hing
around each other's houses, leaving a
note to their parents where they had
wondered off to. SWansonalso recalled
that one of the "had to" things when he
was a child was taking a leisurely drive
around the courthouse (if your family
owned a car).
A few other "in" things were driving
to Atlanta to go to "The Varsity" (a hog
dog joint), drive-in movies, and drive-in
restaurants. "You could carry out a date
for two Cokes, a hamburger and fries
for $3 and get change back," Swanson
said on the subject. "I remember when
Coke was a nickel. You could get a
Krystal hamburger for a dime apiece."
As for school, South Gwinnett High
School was where Swanson attended
school as a teenager. South Gwinnett
brought four communities together to
form one school. Swanson was involved
in activities such as football, baseball
and the FFA. South Gwinnett had a var-


A Doctorate
sity football team. The school's mascot
was "the Comets." They adopted this
mascot after the start of the space pro-
gram in the U.S.
In school, Swanson's favorite subject
was math. "Business math," he called it.
If it had to do with adding, subtracting
or fractions, Swanson enjoyed it! He
had the opportunity to take math cours-
es such as algebra, geometry and
trigonometry, but he never took up the
chance of taking them.
When he was 17, Swanson dropped
out of school and joined the military.
Swanson placed his books in a neat
stack on the principal's desk and left the
campus. His reasoning for quitting was
anger. The school denied his final credit
that he needed to graduate. In the eighth
grade, Swanson took an FFA class that
should have counted as a high school
credit, but South Gwinnett wouldn't
accept it. His father was so angry with
Swanson that he wouldn't speak to his
son for three days!
After quitting school, Swanson
joined the military, his goal ever since
he was a child. Still enraged with him,.
though, Swanson's father would not
sign the papers for him to join the actu-
al Army, but Swanson was placed in the
reserves on June 11, 1961. Swanson
never actually fought in any wars, but
was ready to go if he had to in 1961-
1964.
Fifteen years later, Swanson finished
his schooling and went on to earn his
doctorate in ministry. At the age of 15,
Swanson was called into the ministry.
He ignored the call until 1975. In
Norcross, Ga., Swanson answered the
call and headed to get his degree in
ministry. When asked how he knew he
was called to be a minister, Swanson
replied, "It's just something that you
know. You do anything you have to do
to go into the field." Thus Trenton
Swanson became Dr. Trenton Swanson.
Before this happened, though,
Swanson met his future wife in 1964.
His friend was dating her sister. He
introduced them. The rest is history. The
two married on Oct. 31, 1964, becom-
ing Mr. and Mrs. Trenton and Co6rnni .
Swanson! They had a simple, small cer-.
emony, with about 40 people in atten-
dance. The church they were wed at is
still standing even to this day!
When asked "How has your home-
town changed over the years?" Swanson
gave a small laugh then said, "The pota-
to house is gone, the cotton gin is gone,
the cannery is gone, it has went from a
little country town to an Atlanta suburb.
The population has gone from only
2,600 to 750,000."
When asked about how the United
States has changed over his life, he
answered as follows:' He believes that
today, we are living in the best medical
age that has ever been. He's gone from
a four-way party-line phone to a person-
al, portable cellular phone. "I was 23
when the first man reached the moon."
Swanson even remembered how he
heard a broadcast over the radio, when a
broadcast came over the airwaves stat-
ing that Armstrong had reached the
moon.
Swanson has a saying that he lives
by, "Family that prays and plays togeth-
er, stays together." To this.day, Swanson
still believes in that saying strongly.
As of today, Dr. Trenton Swanson is
the pastor at the First Baptist Church of
Zolfo Springs. Going from a young
Georgia boy to a Florida man, Swanson
enjoys his job, spending time with his
loving wife Connie. his wonderful
friends, his congregation and the won-
derful people of Hardee County.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and Jbfor the enjoyment of our
readers.


SEMINOLE INDIAN TRIBE
^---I-l-r"


PHOTO BY JIM KELLY
Willie Johns has been historian of the Seminole Indian Tribe of Florida and soon will
become chief judge of the tribe, which has 4,200 members. The Tribe owns 107 restau-
rants and 7 gambling casinos. He lives in Brighton and is from the Cow Creek branch
of the Seminoles. The Tribe is also in the cattle, citrus and sugar cane businesses and
owns about 120,000 acres in Florida. "A lot of foreign countries want our beef. We have
a computer chip in each animal so the beef can be traced to a specific bull, cow and
pasture. We are buying back Florida one hamburger at a time." A person has to be to
at least one-quarter Seminole to be in the Tribe. He said Seminole Indians today are
similar to the rest of Florida's population in terms of many having computers and cell
phones and some having problems with drugs and/or alcohol. He spoke Tuesday,
March 27, to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club at the Panda Restaurant. From left are Willie
Johns, Rev. Randy Johnson, and Jessica Heath, both of Reality Ranch on Hwy. 66 east
of Zolfo Springs.

April 5, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 5B


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Justin Knight smacked a pair
of extra-base hits in last week's
win over Teneroc.
The Hardee Wildcat nine won
on the road and lost at home last
week*as the 'Cats began their
district schedule.
Tuesday's trip to Teneroc was
successful with a 5-1 win, while
a visit Friday from Lake Wales
didn't go so well.
This week, the Wildcats
greeted Teneroc on Tuesday and
travel to Auburndale today
(Thursday). Next week, it is a
trip to Lake Wales on Tuesday,
a visit from Fort Meade on
Wednesday and another from
Auburndale on Friday in finish-
ing up the district schedule. The
season ends with a trip to Fort
Meade on April 18 and a visit
from Avon Park on April 19 for
Senior Night for its 10 seniors.

HARDEE 5, TENEROC 1
"It was our most complete
game this season. We pitched
well, batted well and played the
field well," commented Head


Coach Steve Rewis.
After a scoreless first inning,
Hardee went to work in the too
of the second at Lakeland last
Tuesday. With one. away,
Knight tripled in left center to
get Hardee going. With two
down, he trotted home on a
Dalton Hewett double up the
middle. In turn, he raced home
on a Kris Johnson double to left
field.
The 'Cats left a pair of Titans
aboard in the second and third
innings, when a possible score
was cut off at home. Hardee
picked up another run in the top
of the fourth. Luke Palmer dou-
bled and Ramiro Briones went
in as pinch runner. He went to
third on an error on a sacrifice
and home on a Johnson hit. .
It started again in the top of
the seventh, when Dawson
Crawford was hit by a pitch,
Murrell Winter wvas safe on an
error. Both came in on a Knight
double.
Teneroc had a final chance to
get some runners home in the
bottom of the seventh, getting
one run on back-to-back dou-

TO: OUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Our family has been tormented with this horrible dis-
ease known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. It is a fatal neu-
romuscular disease that slowly robs your loved one
of his/her ability to walk, speak, swallow and
breathe. It will break your heart to see them getting
weaker and weaker right before your eyes and there
is nothing you can do ... \

My husband, Tony Flores, was diagnosed with this
dreadful disease in August of 2009. The doctors told
us this was a rare disease. They gave him 2 to 5 years
to live. We were devastated, because although they
said it was a rare disease we knew of three other
causes in our small town that had already died of this
horrid disease. Since then, we have found that there
were 10 cases in out small area. Is it rare? Doctors
told us it was one in a million, well ... I'm not a math-
ematician but the numbers don't add up ... I pray I
never meet another person that has been given the
devastating news that they have ALS.

Please help and join the cause to defeat ALS ... Any
contribution will be greatly appreciated. Please
contact us -at Flores & Flores, Inc. to make your
contributions before April 14th or you may bring to
Payne Park in Sarasota, Florida on April 14, 2012
anhd walk with us. If you don't want to walk come
anyway and cheer on the walkers.

My husband Tony Flores may not be able to walk, but
he will be riding his mobility chair and I will be next
to him along with our children and grandchildren.
Please help stop this terrifying disease. Thank you
for your support and prayers. God Bless! soc45

good game on Tuesday, the
Friday night home game was
the opposite.
It was all Highlanders from
the get-go, with a bat-around
first inning and a half dozen
runs, including twin homers.
Before Hardee came to bat, the
'Cats were down 6-0.

open the Wildcat offense. That
didn't last long as three outs
came quickly.

double down the right field line.
Palmer drew a walk, Cody
Spencer also walked and Evans

A Family's Testimonial


' My wife,Trudy won a heart
score certificate from MDC at
the Manatee Chamber Retreat
I decided to take the test and
much to our surprise, the
"widow maker" was discovered.
This resulted in immediate open
heart surgery saving my life!
It was a shocking find and we
would recommend this scan
to everyone!"

THE HISTORY OF CAMEOS
During Pioneer Park Days this year I dressed old-fashioned.
depicting the late 1800s several ways, both as "Ma" from "Little
House on the Prairie," and as a Victorian lady. Either way, the one
thing I absolutely had to have as part of my costume was a cameo
pin.
Even though it was just costume jewelry, I received many
,compliments about its beauty, which led me to question the origin
and history of the cameo. While the birthplace of the, cameo was
nearly 300 years before the birth of Christ in Alexandria, Egypt,
cameos owe their origin to ancient carving traditions.
As far back as 15,000 BC, petroglyphs figures carved into
rock were used to record significant events and communicate
information. In ancient times people used cameos to depict and
ethic or moral, or to make a statement about their faith or loyalties.
Cameos are works of miniature sculptured art. .They reveal the
manners, customs, philosophies, historic events and social occa-
sions that have marked our past. Emperors and the rich clans from
the Roman imperial times would collect engravings of mythologi-
cal scenes and,portraits of important members of their family.
Cameos were not only used as a symbol of wealth but also as a vow
of love. They were often given to travelers and also to men going
to off to military service.
From the end of the Roman Empire, in the 5th century, and for
about 900 years, the denial of any form of idolatry by all religions
caused a marked depression of engraved works. The Renaissance
brought about a rebirth of cameo artistry. Cameos became the most
sought-after jewel by queens and princesses throughout Europe.
Since Queen Victoria favored cameos, they became quite popular
during the Victorian Era, (1837-1901).
The cameo is carved in .relief with a contrasting colored back-
ground. In the 19th century, skilled artisans utilized'gemstones,
stone, shell, lava, coral and manmade materials to produce cameos.
The shell cameo was easily carved and inexpensive and worn less
formally during the day. Stone cameos came from agate, onyx or
sardonyx and offered more colorful layers for carvers to utilize.
The quality of the carving varied from dreamlike to realistic,
with naturalism appealing to the Victorians. Their love of garden-
ing also translated into cameos& depicting flowers and other floral
motifs. A prized souvenir for a Victorian woman -was a cameo
according to her likeness.
I While commissioned portraits were in vogue, another kind of
portrait appeared with the anonymous woman. The industrializa-
tion of the Victorian era made mass production of jewelry possible,
and the anonymous woman was molded into cameos from glass or
celluloid. Cameos were most often popular as pins and pendants
usually worn on a black velvet ribbon around the neck. The most
popular cameos today are carved in seashells, a tradition that began
in the 15th or 16th century.
Cameos have been used throughout history to depict living
heroes or rulers. During the Renaissance, Pope Paul II Was an avid
collector and, according to history, it led to his untimely death. His
excessive display of carved gems and stones on.his fingers kept his
hands so cold that he caught the chill that meant his death: Cameos
enchanted Napoleon, who wore a Cameo to his own wedding and
founded a school in Paris to teach the art of Cameo carving to.'
young apprentices.
Cameos have been used on helmets and military accessories
like breastplates and sword handles, on rings and other jewelry, and
on vases, cups and dishes. Cameos are still quite popular today.
Perhaps you will stop in at the Cracker Trail Museum to see
our cameo or donate one of your own so that others may enjoy the
beauty and art of the cameo. We have a special place just waiting
for your donation!

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Then the soldiers of the gov-
ernor took Jesus ... they
stripped Him and put a scar-
let robe on Him. .. They
twisted some t "-ns into a
crown ... and jeered Him.
They spat on Him and when
they finished, they put His
own clothes upon Him and
led Him off for crucifixion.
Matthew 27:27a,28-29,31 (PME)

FRIDAY
And as they were marching
out, they came upon a man
of Cyrene, Simon by name;
this man they compelled to
carry .His cross. And they
came to a place called
Golgotha (which means the
place of the skull). ... And
when they had crucified
Him, they divided His gar-
ments among them by cast-
ing lots.
Matthew 27:32-33,35 (RSV)

SATURDAY
It was about 9 o'clock in the
morning when the crucifixion
took place. A signboard was
fastened to the cross above
His head, announcing His
crime, "The King of the
Jews." Two robbers were
also crucified that morning,
their crosses on each side of
Him. ... The people jeered at
Him as they walked by, and
wagged their heads in
mockery.
Mark 16: 25-30 (TLB)

SUNDAY
From noon to' three, the
whole earth was dark. ...
Around mid-afternoon,
Jesus groaned out of the
depths, crying loudly, "Eli,
Eli, lama sabackthani?"
Which means, "My God, My
God, why have You forsaken
Me?"
Matthew 27:45-46 (ME)
MONDAY
Then Jesus gave a loud cry
and died. And the curtain of
the Temple was torn in two'
from top to bottom. And
when the centurion who was
standing opposite Him saw
how He died, he said, "Truly
this man was the Son of
God."
Mark 15:37-39 (NEB)


TUESDAY
Now there was a man
named Joseph, a member of
the council, a good and
upright man, who had not
consented to their decision
and action. He came from
the Judean town of Arimath-
ea. ... Going to Pilate, he
asked for Jesus' body. Then
he. took it down, wrapped it
in linen cloth and placed it in
a tomb cut in the rock.
Luke 23:50-51a, 52-53 (NIV)

WEDNESDAY
And as His body was taken
away, the.- women from
Galilee followed and saw the
tomb where they placed His
body. Then they went home
and prepared spices and
ointments to embalm Him.
But by the time they were fin-
ished it was the Sabbath, so
they. rested all that day as
required by the Law.
Luke'23:56 (NLT)

FILL THEM! Is what the new pharmacy in Bowling
Green is going to do.
Truecare Pharmacy held its grand opening on March 12.
Owner and pharmacist James Atanda, wife Abigail and daughter
Toluwalope "Tolu" have high hopes of helping the community.
Atanda and his family have been living in Hillsborough
County for six years, before that they lived in Ocala. While pass-
ing through Hardee County, Atanda realized that Bowling Green
was in need of a pharmacy within the community.
Their hopes in opening this much-needed service is to help the
community in the most vital way. Atanda wants the people in
Bowling Green to receive the medications they need without
breaking their wallets.
Although Atanda has not owned his own business before, he
has several years' experience in being a pharmacist. He graduated
college about 30 years ago and after coming to America, as he is
from West Africa, became licensed by the Florida Board of
Pharmacy.
Ever since, he has been working as a pharmacist. He worked
at an agency company for a while that would take him to different
facilities to work. He also worked at a CVS Pharmacy:
Truecare carries over-the-counter medicines, diabetic supplies,
vitamins and food supplements, and other such items.
It accepts most-insurances, including Medicaid and Medicare,
and will work with you so you can still receive your medications if
you are on a tight budget.
The pharmacy also offers to fill your prescriptions in minutes,
automatic refill, and free delivery to all of Hardee County.
On March 12, members of the community gathered at the loca-
tion in order to witness the grand opening of such an important
facility. The pharmacy also received the support of Bowling Green
Mayor Perry Knight who, along with James Atanda, cut the ribbon
officially marking the opening of Truecare Pharmacy.

Mail Call
Darkness and loneliness fill my cell
with pain and fear too great to tell.
I wait for the mailman to deliver a letter
to me as I wipe away tears that no one will see.
I pray sincerely with my head raised above please,
God, send me a letter from my true love.
I long to gaze upon pages so clear with riches
to bring my loved ones near.
Word of diamonds on pages of gold a message from
Heaven as their story is told.
We love you, we miss you, we pray you'll be free
A treasure-filled envelope just for me.
Please bring me memories of joys I once knew
Holding, hugging'and surviving things we used to do.
The darkness and pain of my cell will prevail
as my name again was not called for mail.

When the West was wild, a
rancher went to town for supplies.
He hitched his team, and went into
the general store to shop.
Suddenly a gunslinger engaged
a stranger in a gun fight. and the
shots caused the horses to bolt in
terror.
Instantly the farmer ran for his
team. He stopped his-horses, but
was trampled under their feet.
"Was your wagon worth it?"
asked the doctor.
"Yes." said the dying man. "My
children were in it."
Should you ask God if it was
worth it to send His Son to die for
our sins. I know He'd say, "It was!"
And the Bible says, "There is joy
in the presence of the angels of
- God over 6-ne siinner.tihat repents..-


Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The
Son of God was crucified, died and is risen. Why did God sacrifice
His only begotten Son? The Bible tells us He sacrificed Jesus so
that we might experience a more joyful and abundant life. When we
believe in Jesus' death and resurrection, the weight of our sins is lifted
and our spiritual strength is renewed. Though we may struggle with
earthly events, we still must trust that God knows what is best for
our spiritual growth. This Easter, thank God for the miracle of the
resurrection of His Son. Happy Easter!

In a few months, the Air Force
Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps
(AFJROTC) program will complete
its seventh year at Hardee Senior High
School. In this short timeframe, the
program experienced amazing change
and growth and has excelled, garnering
two "Distinguished Unit" and one
"Outstanding Organization" awards.
ROTC truly is "Aiming 1 .' and today is
deeply rooted and involved in and around
the local community. It is very likely
that you know someone, maybe a family
member, friend, or neighbor, who was
formerly or is currently in the program.
By joining ROTC, these students, or
cadets, "have chosen to be a positive
influencein their school and community.
ROTC is now well established in' Hardee
and, thanks to incredible community
support and. interest, is here to stay.
The mission of the AFJROTC
prograth is "developing citizens of
character dedicated to serving their nation
and community." Our objective is to
train and educate high school students in
citizenship, promote community service,
instill responsibility, leadership, teamwork,
character development, and self-discipline.
Wi.-


ROTC "Aiming High"
by Lt. Col. Anthony Hingle


while e giving instruction in air and space
fundamentals. In the process, the cadets
are challenged mentally, socially, and
physically. The program sets the highest
expectations and standards for the cadets,
to include grooming, uniform wear, and
discipline, and the instructors hold them
accountable. Not surprisingly, ROTC is
not for everyone. But for those willing to
make the investment, the rewards are great.
ROTC grooms students to become
well-innformed citizens and encourages
community service in many ways. Most
notably, Hardee High School cadets
pride themselves on keeping their school
campus looking nice by providing a
monthly campus clean-up service. They,
provide over twenty color guard and flag
detail community' service events *each
year, to include presenting our nation's
Colors at civic events, football and baseball
games, local parades, awards ceremonies,
and numerous other local events. Other
areas in which the cadets are involved
include refurbishing the school's forty-
foot flag pole, providing American flags
for classrooms, cleaning the grounds of
the Hardee County Recreation Complex.
volunteering at Friday Night Live.


fundraising tor Relay for Lite, clearing
trails at the Hardee County Outdoor
Classroom, supporting the Hardee
Help Center, and providing servers at
banquets. This is the tip of the iceberg.
For this academic year alone, the cadets
have collectively exceeded 900 hours of
community service. In every activity, the
cadets learn and exercise leadership and
teamwork skills, while strengthening the
unit's esprit de corps (spirit of the corps).
The instructor team attributes their
program's success to outstanding school
and community support and involvement,
a robust activities and events plan, and a
desire by students wanting to distinguish
themselves and make a difference. The
unit's success is evidenced 'by high unit
enrollment numbers. For the last two
years, enrollment on the first day of
school exceeded 150 cadets. Interest in
the program is expected to remain, with
the two instructors projecting enrollment
numbers in excess of 160 next year. With
numbers like this and a highly energized
corps, expect tb see more from your local
ROTC as they continue "Aiming High."
