Solar Farm Making Progress


National Solar Power Part-
ners has reached a major mile-
stone in its plans to build .solar-
energy facilities totaling 700
megawatts in Florida by com-
pleting an agreement to acquire
several million advanced solar
panels from SolarWorld, the
largest solar-technology manu-
facturer in the Americas.
The projects are in Hardee,
Gadsden and Liberty counties.
In partnership with Hensel
Phelps Construction Co., Na-
tional Solar chose SolarWorld in
light of the high quality of its
products and its corporate cul-
ture focused on sustainability
and community partnerships.
"We're very excited about
this partnership, which is a great
cultural fit between our compa-
nies," said James Scrivener,
CEO of National Solar Power.

committed to helping make the
United States the world leader in
renewable energy, and this" part-
nership gives us the building

will create thousands of jobs for
Americans and help ensure U.S.

Bicyclist

Killed

On U.S. 17
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate-
A 51 l-year-old Wauchula man
was killed early Saturday after-
noon as he bicycled along U.S.
17.
The man, whose name is
being withheld until his next of
kin can. be notified, was pedal-
ing north on the paved shoulder
of the highway at Bostick Road
when he suddenly fell and was
struck by a passing semi, Flor-
ida Highway Patrol crash inves-
tigator Tpr. Russell Waldorff
and homicide investigator Cpl.
L.M. Smith Jr. said.
According to their report, the
crash occurred at 12:10 p.m. as
both the bicycle and the tractor-
trailer headed north on U.S. 17,
with the Hyper bike ahead of
the 2012 Freightliner.
Investigators could not say
what made the man fall off of or
eject from the bicycle, but he
landed in the inside lane of trav-
el. The semi was in the outside
lane, and the bicyclist's head hit
the semi's running boards as it
went by.
The semi stopped in a right-
turn lane just north of the colli-
sion point, the FHP said. The
bicycle was on the east grass
shoulder of U.S. 17.

in Florida are truly exciting
developments in the renewable-

Each solar farm segment will
generate 20 MW on about 200
acres. The first 20 MW segment
alone will utilize more than
100,000 solar panels, and the
entire project will require mil-

National Solar is on track to
begin construction of the first
farm, in Hardee County, later
this year.
Hensel Phelps, a world

rebuilt the Pentagon after the
Sept. 11 attacks in 2001, will
design, build and operate the
solar farm projects for National

Drought Severe,


Fire Risk High


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Hardee County is the only
one in the state.
As of Tuesday evening, Har-
dee County was the only coun-
ty in the state to register in the
700-plus range, light purple on
the Keetch-Byram nationwide
drought index.
Despite warnings and appeals
from Interim Fire Chief Robert
Clayton and state Division of
Forestry (DOF) spokesmen
Patrick Mahoney and Randy
Coldiron. the Hardee County
Commission nixed a request for
an ordinance that would allow
the commission to announce a
burn ban in the county. A pre-
pared resolution for an immedi-
ate burn ban was, therefore,
useless.
The commission listened to
residents who spoke out against
county regulation, just another
bureaucratic involvement in
people's lives and worthless
against cigarettes and lightning.
The county's drought index
was 704 before last week's


meeting, dropped under 700
briefly with some rain and rose
again-over 700 by last weekend.
Clayton said his department
had fought 47 brush fires since
the first of the year. DOF only
issues permits for a fire pile
over six feet high and eight feet
wide.
But many fires start with
campfires or yard burning that
gets out of control when the
wind shifts, they are not closely
watched. At one off Goosepond
Road recently, a shed and vehi-
cle were burned.
Coldiron said the DOF
resources are stretched so thin,
they cannot assure assistance on
every brush fire. Sometimes
they are called to otherareas,
such as the 11,000-acre fire in
the Osceola National Forest in
northern Florida.
Commissioner Grady John-
son said everything didn't hinge
on DOF. "We have the Sheriff's
Office and city police. They're
on patrol 24/7 and can see a fire
and call it in. Utilize local law

12 Jobs


Up For


Election

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Some of the best-paid jobs in
the county are up for grabs this
fall.
The catch? A commitment to
public service.
Oh, and then there's that
street-by-street campaigning
during the worst of the summer
heat!
One dozen county offices are
up for re-election this year. In
three, the incumbents have said
they will not seek to retain their
seats. Courts Clerk Hugh Brad-
ley, Tax Collector Zee Smith
and County Commissioner Dale
Johnson will leave office come
November.
But 21 people already have
applied for candidacy to fill
those spots.
And more- are expected
before the May 7 deadline for
petitions to have one's name
placed on the ballot. To do that,
potential candidates must

viewed in depth at a commis-
sion workshop on May 7 at 5
p.m.
In the report, Newman says
the problem is unsupervised
teenagers and tweens allowed
to attend the monthly event
with no adult supervision. "It
has become a social gathering
place for this young age group
and a babysittingg service' for
many parents," her report says.
Behavior problems by an
increasing large group of young
people has grown so large that
few adults now attend the
events and some do not want
their children to attend and be
exposed to them caught up in
bad behavior, says Newman's
report. "Thus they keep their
teen away and thus they stay
away as well. Adults in general
are annoyed and therefore stay
away. Some shops and restau-
rants do not want to stay open
and vendors are complaining
about sales, she says.
Problems include skateboard-
ing, running, rough-housing,
cussing, making out, fighting,
smoking pot and, in general,
being rude, disrespectful and
not courteous to those around
them. They congregate in large
groups, blocking the sidewalks
as well as the street.
Newman clarifies that it is
counter to the Friday Night
Live Mission Statement, "to
provide a place for the commu-
nity and visitors to gather while
bringing exposure to the busi-
nesses in downtown Wauchula
and furthering the mission of
Main Street Wauchula."
She insists that adults and
business owners want this age
group to begin the habit of gath-
ering downtown at a young age,
a trend they hope will carry
with them throughout adult-
hood, supporting the local
economy by shopping and din-
ing there as well.

Kelly's Column


By Jim


Music At The Melon Barn will not be held this year, but.
Wilbur Robertson, 78, hopes to bring back the event in 2013.
For the past eight years the Robertson family has hosted the
event at the melon barn on Johnston Road southeast of Zolfo
Springs on the last Fridaymnight of April. The event features patri-
otic, gospel and country music, a tribute to the U.S. military and
Florida cracker cowboys, and food. Attendance reached 500 to 600.
This year there were conflicts and roadblocks that kept the
event from happening. "We love the event. We have always
enjoyed it. Music At The Melon Barn is something the community
enjoyed. We hope next year to have it again," said Robertson.
With the difficulties trying to line up the event for the last
Friday of April this year, Robertson felt the Good Lord was trying
to tell him to skip 2012.
His family has 100 acres of watermelons which should be in
full production by the first of May. Picking should begin before
then. Robertson did not plant his usual u-pick garden this year
either.

Carl Simmons, 86, has a citrus nursery in Hardee-County.
trees today sell for $8. Years ago they were $1.50. Semi truck tires.
used to cost about $65 and today can cost $400.
Years ago favorite root stocks were rough lemon followed by
sour orange and bittersweet and today-swingle and corrizo.
Various tree diseases are always a challenge for tree nursery and
citrus growers. Today's No. I feared disease is greening followed
by canker. Previous diseases included decline and tristeza.
Grove caretaking costs canw reach $1,800 an acre, compared
with $350 years ago. Fruit prices are high. OJ per capital consump-
tion has declined in recent years but is still close to three gallons a
person annually, compared with a previous five gallons.
Orange juice remains a delicious healthy beverage, but there is
more drink competition today.

C.C. Searcy and his wife Margaret of Wauchula on April 4
were married for 70 years. He is a retired excellent building con-
tractor.

Dr. Elver Hodges of Wauchula will be 100 on Aug. 2. He is a
retired instructor and executive of the Range Cattle Research
Station south of Ona.

Bob Parker of Sarasota is 98 and last month killed a turkey ,
gobbler at the Avon Park Air Force Range, his5Iecond bird for hunt-
ing there.for the past 25 years.
I have noticed most men in their 90s, like the three mentioned
above, are slender.

The late Charlie Smith of Bartow lived to be.107, and one of -"
his favorite foods was sardines.

Bowling Green farmer Jimmy Parker has a big sign on a fruit

The Indians used to have free reign in Florida before white set-
tlerg began 'iioving further souih. There were three Seminole
Indian wars. The whites broke several treaties. Osceola was even
captured under a flag of truce. -.
The Seminole Indian Tribe of Florida today totals about 4,200
anI owns 107 restaurants, 7 gambling casinos, and roughly
120,000 acres. Tribe historian and soon-to-be chief judge Willie
Johns of Brighton says, "We "ate buying back Florida one ham-,
burger at a time.,"

One of my boyhood friends and classmate, -Baptist minister
Randy Mitchel, died last year of a heart attack. He was a diabetic
-and last year said, "If I knew I only had a day or two to live, I
would eat the biggest Snickers bai I c6uld fipd."
He was a wonderful man and pastor. His father, Goat Mitchell,
for many years operated a Dixie Lily (cornmeal and flour) truck
route to area grocery stores.

The Hardee County Com-
mission is accepting applica-
tions from people interested in
serving on the Economic De-
velopment Authority Board to
replace the seat:previously held
by Bill Lambert. who resigned
last week.
Lambert had' served on the
board as the "at large" appoint-
ment of the commission since
the EDA's creation in 2004 and
served as its chairman until
recently.
He resigned from the board
because of increased duties in-
curred as he is also the execu-
tive director of the Hardee
County Industrial Development
Authority and is the county's
economic development direc-
tor.
"This anticipated increase in






enforcement, rely on them to
assist'. Fire-Rescue is spread out
too thin. It's a matter of educat-
ing the public and using local
law enforcement for patrol."

"As economic development

to improve options for funding
and will offer administrative
assistance as necessary and

requested and appropriate," he
said.

make-out sessions, and report
any fighting or drugs to police
officers.
The. goal is to decrease the
overall appearance/feel of a
place of freedom and lack of
supervision for these-teens and
tweens.
Finally, the retailers will be
encouraged to stay open during
the monthly event, having spe-
cial sales or events for their cus-
tomers and sending out invita-
tions to their customer base.
It is hoped these and other
measures to be discussed will
lessen 'the monthly, difficulties.
The next Friday Night Live is
April 20 and will include an
open mic event on the vacant
lot on East Main Street. It will.
include karaoke, poetry, and
other contributions. If it is suc-
cessful, it may expand to
include bands. There will be
police stationed at the cross-
walks across U.S. 17 North and
South to ensure safe travel
between Heritage Park and
there.
Learning, like traveling and
all other methods of im-
provement, as it finishes
good sense, so it makes a
silly man ten thousand
times more insufferable by
supplying variety of matter
to his impertinence, and
giving him an opportunity
of abounding in absurdi-
ties.

Citrus


Estimate


Lowered
The U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture reduced its orange
crop forecast for the 2011-12
season by two million boxes
Tuesday, estimating Florida
will now produce 145 million
boxes.
"It's truly amazing Florida
growers can once again produce
such a quality crop in the face
of immense challenges such as
HLB, or citrus greening," said
Michael W. Sparks, executive
.VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "This is a testament to
the resiliency of our growers
and the fact they are the best in
,the world, bar none."
The USDA makes its initial
forecast in October aand then
revises it monthly until the end
of the season in July
The April decrease was seen
entirely in Valencias, with the'
estimate dropping from 73 mil-
lion to 71 million boxes. Early
and mid-season varieties re-
mained at 74 million boxes. For
Florida specialty fruit, the
USDA predicts 1.15 million
boxes of tangelos and 4.3 mil-
lion boxes of tangerines. Those
numbers are unchanged from
March.
The yield for from-concen-
trate orange juice decreased to
1.62 gallons per 90-pound box
from the previous estimate of
1.64 gallons per box.
The USDA predicts Florida
will harvest 18.8 million boxes
of grapefruit, showing a minor
rise from the March forecast of
18.7 million.
The Florida citrus 'industry
creates a $9 billion annual eco-
nomic impact, employing near-
ly 76,000 people and covering
about 550,000 acres. Founded
in 1948 and currently represent-
ing nearly 8,000 grower mem-

Ever wonder what a Pre-Arranged and or
a Pre-Paid Funeral or Cremation is.

A Pre-Arranged Service of your choice is
where you sit down with a Licensed Funeral
Director or Licensed Pre-Need Counselor and
create a file at the Funeral Home with all of
the answers to the questions that will be asked
when you pass away. Like where you were
born, your parents name (mother's maiden),
what casket or other merchandise you would
like to have, and what type of service you
would like to have. No money is needed to
Pre-Arrange your wishes.

A Pre-Paid Service is the same as a Pre-
Arranged Service but, you take it one step
farther by paying the cost up front and locking
in the price of the service and merchandise.
The money is put in to a trust and held there
until your death. Any Funeral Home may
honor the Pre-Paid Contract no matter where
you took it out in the U.S., Canada and many
other places. The Funeral Home does not keep
the money and the checks should not be made
to the Funeral Home, but to the company that
they use to Trust your Pre-Paid Services.

TREATING KIDS Is a challenge Sonni's Pediatrics is
willing-to take on.
Dr. Rajeswari Sonni and Dr. Marcela Jativa are board-certified
pediatricians. Dr. Sonni was the first pediatrician to make her way
to Hardee County.
Sonni opened her first practice in Avon Park in 1982. After
seeing how many families traveled there from Hardee County to
see a pediatrician, she decided to open a practice here in 1992.
Sonni knew she wanted to become a pediatrician at a young
age. When she was 5 years old in her native India, she was one of
the lucky to survive smallpox. After that experience, she decided
becoming a pediatrician would be the best way to help other chil-
dren who were sick, just like she had been.

Pastor Laster loved the
Lord, being a wife, caring for
her husband and children,
cooking, and she loved peo-
ple. She always looked for
the best in everyone despite
their behavior. In her early
years of life, Pastor Lillie
Laster operated a successful
restaurant and rental property
establishment where she
loved and cared for many
strangers, drifters, down-and-
outers, both men and women
seeking work to care for their
families.
She married Jessie Laster
in 1942 and to this union
came a total of 12 children
(three deceased). Although
Pastor Laster did not achieve
her educational goals, she
took great joy. in the fact that
she made sure all of her chil-
dren received a good educa-
tion, seven of which are now
preachers.
Pastor Laster enjoyed
family gatherings with all of
her children sitting around
eating, singing gospel and
talking about the good old
days. Pastor would give you
the coat off her back if you
needed it. More than any-
thing, Pastor Laster enjoyed
preaching and teaching the
word of God. She let us know
that "the wages of 'sin is
death but the gift of God is
eternal life," and "to be ye
holy as God is holy, holiness
without no man shall see
God."
Pastor Laster was the best
mother in the world; there
... as nothing she wouldn't do
for her family. She was sur-
rounded by family and
friends the last night of her
life into her Heavenly
Father's arms. It was Pastor
Laster's faith that helped her
through those last months of
her illness.
During this long period of
sickness, we would ask
Mom, Is God good?" She
would respond, moving her
head up and down, signifying
"Yes, God is good." She
never lost her faith, even dur-
ing times of great pain. We
are going to miss you, Mama,
but rest in peace because you
gave us something money
can't buy, more precious than
gold or rubies. Mom, you
gave us JESUS! You gave us
Love!

opening inning on a pair of
ground-outs and a strikeout.
Hardee put the first run on the
board. Deonte Evans led off
with a walk on five pitches. He
stole second, went to third on a
Kris Johnson pop-up and raced
home on a Terrell hit to left
field.
That 1-0 score held until the
fourth inning. Hardee left
Crawford aboard in the second
inning after a hit to right field
and Teneroc left a runner
aboard in the third.
In the top of the fourth. Joey
Bass doubled to deep left for
the Titans and rode home on
off-pitches. It was a tie game 1-
1.
Luke Palmer was stranded in
the Wildcat fourth at-bat and a
Crawford at-bat went for
naught in the home half of the
fifth.
Teneroc forged ahead 3-1 in
the top of fifth inning. A walk
and a hit and fielder's choice
out were followed by a pair of
hits, letting two Titan runners
cross home plate.
It was the bottom of the sixth
before Hardee got back on
track. With one away, Terrell
worked for a walk and went to
second while Winter was at bat.
An error on a Palmer hit and
another on the relay, allowed
Terrell to come home. Palmer


was left at third.
Teneroc was held in check in
both the sixth and seventh
innings. Hardee had a final
opportunity in the home half of
the seventh. Crawford was hit
by a pitch and went to second
on a Cody Spencer sacrifice.
On an Evans hit, Crawford was
out at third and Evans- was
stranded when the third out
ended the game.
AUBURNDALE 9,
HARDEE 2
It was a long trip to
Auburndale last Thursday.
Hardee made a great start but
couldn't keep it going. In the
top of the first, the 'Cats scored
twice. Justin Knight and Terrell
both singled and came around
on a Crawford hit to right cen-
ter. It was 2-0. Hardee was to
get no other chances with nine
Wild-cats going down on
strikes to frustrate any attempts
at a rally.
That brief lead dissolved
when the Bloodhounds plated a
pair of runs in the bottom of the
first on two hits, an error and a
wild pitch. It was 2-2.
Neither team scored in the
second frame, but Auburndale
took the lead to stay in the third
inning on a hit and an error. The
Bloodhounds added twin tallies
in the fourth, another two in the
fifth,and final pair in the sixth
to win 9-2.

mains the largest program in the
Older Americans Act system.
The federally funded Older
Americans Act provides a vari-
ety of in-home and community-
based services without cost to
eligible persons. While persons
age 60 and older are eligible for
Older Americans Act programs,
services are funded for individu-
als with the greatest economic
and social need who meet pro-
gram guidelines. This program
also provides support services
for family caregivers.
The Older Americans Act
requires that each client be pro-
vided the opportunity to con-
tribute to the cost of the service;
however, denial of service for
non-contribution is prohibited.
Contributions must be used to
expand services.
The purpose of the OAA
Nutrition Program is to:
reduce hunger and food
insecurity;
promote socialization of
older adults; and
promote the health and
well-being of older individuals
and delay adverse health condi-
tions through access to nutrition
and other disease prevention
and health promotion services.
The OAA authorizes two
nutrition programs:

vices Besides meals, servic-
es include nutrition screening
and education and nutrition
assessment and counseling as
appropriate. The program also
provides opportunities for
social engagement and volun-
teer roles, which contribute to
overall health and well-being.

Services Provides home-de-
livered meals and nutrition edu-
cation to homebound individu-

By JACOB NEUHOFER
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Paul Keel was born June 10, 1948, in
Newport News, Va. He grew up in
Hampton, Va. He has an older brother
named George Keel.
When he was growing up, things
were differ- .
ent than
they are
now. Back l
then kids
played outside more with games such as
football, baseball, building forts or just
played in the woods. Kids also played
sports ,rather than watch them.
School was different back then too.
If you didn't do your work, then you
had to repeat that grade. Paul was an
average student in high school earning
B's and C's. Then in college he was an
above-average student.
He played football as a linebacker
and a defensive end. He also ran track
in high school. His events were cross
country and the 200 meter. He wasn't in
any clubs when he was in high school.
For the most part he enjoyed school. He
liked the socializing aspect such as
hanging out with friends and he partook
in school activities.
Paul's first car that he drove was a
1963 Ford and the first car he owned
was a 1957 Chevrolet. Transportation
was the same as it is today with planes,
trains, and automobiles. The difference
was that travel wasn't as luxurious as
today and cars had more metal and
chrome. When he would stop at a fast-
food restaurant, such as McDonald's, a
hamburger cost 30 cents arid drinks cost


S hop


We Are Open!!!


104 N. 6th Ave.


25 cents. Interestingly enough,
McDonald's was drive-thru only. You
couldn't sit down and eat your food in
the restaurant.
The popular movies back then were
"Dr. Zhivago" and anything with Clint
Eastwood, such as the Western "The
Good the Bad and the Ugly." The popu-
lar music artists were the Beatles and
the Beach Boys. Paul's favorite was the
Beach Boys and John Denver.
For special occasions his family and
he would go to the Appalachian
Mountains, the Smoky Mountains, the
beach, or just have a plain family get-
together.
When he graduated high school, Paul
enrolled in college: He attended
Southeastern University in Lakeland.
He graduated with a teaching degree.
He didn't always want to be a teacher
though. Originally he wanted to be a
highway patrolman. He decided to go
into the education field because he cares
about kids.
To him, his most significant moment
in his life is when he got married. He
has two children and five grandchildren.
When asked if there was any advice he
could give to a young person growing
up in today's world, he said to get a
good education because nobody can
take that away from you.
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 for the enjoyment of our
readers.

I am a humble carpenter
I lived in days of old
And Yet I played a special part
In the greatest story ever told.

I built the cross where Jesus died
That ragged, rugged tree
And there He shed His precious blood
For sinners such as me!

I built the cross they asked me to
Upon that April day,
And did not know that very cross
Would take my sins away!

I built a cross, but you did too,
As all of us have done.
We all have built a cross of sin
And crucified God's Son!

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...
75 YEARS AGO
The Wauchula Farmers' State

from 11 Florida counties were
here and sold their vegetables
for highest cash prices to a
number of buyers, the com-
modities being auctioned by
Auctioneer and Manager James
McGee,' and recorded by Ray
Marsh.
Joan Crawford and Clark
Gable have the time of their
lives co-starring in their new
picture, "Love On The Run,"
which opens Sunday at the
Royal Theatre, and it is a safe
bet to say that the public view-
ing this picture will have the
time of its life as well.
'Thig is "Be Kind To Ani-
mals" week. But let's make
every week a week of that title.
The Florida, Times-Union
says that movie heroes should-
n't feel flattered, that people
also stare at monkeys, in the
zoo.
The Baptist .young people
gathered at the church Friday
night for an old-fashioned
pound party. Lights were strung
in the yard and furnished illu-
mination for games played
throughout the evening.
50 YEARS AGO

tion voted this week to put addi-
tional brake lights on school

terrible weather conditions..
which forced' the canceling of'
all field everils with the excep ,
tion of the shot put and the dis-
cus. The "Cats" ran against Fort


Construction Co., which built
the $2 million Kash N' Karry
expansion. He bought a bottle

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
After the Sabbath, at dawn
of the first day of the week,
Mary- Magdalene and the
other Mary went to look at
the tomb. ... The angel said
to the women, "Do not be
afraid. For I know you are
looking for Jesus, who was
crucified. He is not here. He
has risen from the dead, just
as He said He would."
Matthew 28:1,5 (NIV)

FRIDAY
Then He opened their minds
to understand the Scripture
and said to them, "Thus it is
written, that the Christ
should suffer and on the
third day rise from the dead,
and that repentance and for-
giveness of sins should be
preached in His name to all
nations, beginning from
Jerusalem. You are witness-
es of these things" ... and
lifting up His hands, He
blessed them; while He
blessed them He parted
from them.
Luke 24:45-48,50, 61 (RSV)

SATURDAY
Later Jesus appeared again
to the disciples beside the-
Lake of Galilee ... "Now
come and have some break-
fast!" Jesus said, ... Then
Jesus went around serving
us the bread and fish. This
was the third time Jesus had
appeared to us since His
return from the dead.
John 21:12a, 13-14 (TLB)

SUNDAY
(Peter said), '"Jesus from
Nazareth was a very special
man. God clearly showed
this to you by the miracles,
wonders and signs He did
through Jesus. ... God
raised Jesus from the dead
and set Him free from the
pain of death, because
death could not hold Him ...
So Jesus is the One whom.
God raised from the dead.
And we are all witnesses to
this ... So know this truth,
God has made Jesus ...
both Lord and Christ."
Acts 2:22,24,32,36 (NCV)
: MONDAY +
"Of one thing I am certain:
The One (Jesus) who started
the good work in you will
bring it to completion at the
Day of Christ Jesus (His
return).
Philippians 1:6 (NEB)


TUESDAY
Jesus said, "Look, here I
stand at the door and knock.
If you hear Me calling and
open the door, I will come in
and we will share a meal as
friends. I will invite everyone
who is victorious to sit with
Me on My throne, just as I
was victorious and sit with
My Father on His throne.
Revelation 3:20 (NLT)

WEDNESDAY
I saw Heaven and earth
-newly created. Gone was
the first Heaven, gone the
first earth, gone the sea ... I
heard a voice thunder from
the throne, "Look! Look!
God has moved into the
neighborhood, making His
home with men and women.
... Then He (Jesus) said,
"It's happened. I'm the A to
Z; I'm the Beginning. I'm the
Conclusion."
Revelation 21:1,3 (ME)

The JV Wildcats will finish

Mason Gough, Mike Heine and
Armando Alamia took turns on
the mound controlling the jun-

Durden held Fort Meade score-
less for nearly three innings
while he and his teammates
scored eight runs.
Alamia opened with a single
advanced on a Luke Winter sac-
rifice and Bolin hit. Both ad-
vanced on a Durden sacrifice
and scored on a Wyatt Maddox
hit.
In the second -inning Jacob
Neuhofer, Mason Gough and
Dustin Goodwyn kept moving
around the bases and came
home on an Alamia double.
-Bolin singled to score Alamia
and again came home when
Durden and Maddox moved
him on...
Gough was safe on a right-
fielder's error and kept running,
scoring on an Alamia hit in the
third inning.
.Fort Meade picked up its runs
in the sixth inning but it was too
little, too late.
By the time the game ended,
Bolin had five stolen bases and


Alamia and Ezekial Servin each
had a stolen base.
The 9-2 score turned around
March 29 in a visit from Lake
Wales, which claimed the victo-
ry.
Spotting the junior Highlan-
ders one run in the top of the
first, Hardee came back with a
pair of scores in the home half
of the inning. Alamia was safe
on an error, Bolin singled and
both came home on a Maddox
hit. Hardee stranded runners in
the second, fourth and fifth
inning.
Lake Wales picked up the
pace with a third-inning run,
three in the fifth and one each in
the sixth and seventh innings
for the win.
Last week, Hardee began
with a Tuesday visit from Avon
Park, which picked up a run in
the top of the first on two walks
and a double.
That 1-0 score lasted until the
fourth inning when Hardee plat-
ed a pair of runs. Devin Pearson
and Zack Carranco scored on a
Neuhofer hit to make it a 2-1
game.
Avon Park, however, came
back with three runs in the top
of the seventh to win the game
4-2.
Hardee played last Thursday
and lost 10-0 "We ran out of
steam," said Coach John Sharp.
The junior Highlanders plat-
ed one run in each of the first
three innings, added three in the
fourth and four in the fifth to
put the game away.

Cheerleader Chosen Among Best


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
She's only 13, but she's
already gathering her scholar-
ships for college.
Eighth grader Claudia Klein,
daughter of Donna and Bruce
Klein of Zolfo Springs, has had
the thrills this spring. To date,
she has received $3,000 in
scholarships.
Claudia could have cheered
for junior high, but chose to
remain in the youth football
program for one last season
cheering for the Pop Warner
midget division. It turned out to
be a sensational time for the girl
who is called "Smiley" by
everyone who knows her.
While cheering and partici-
pating in her 4-H Cracker Trail
Club, Claudia managed .to
maintain a 4.0 grade point aver-
age.
Pop Warner Football, which
prides itself on its scholar-ath-
lete program, considers applica-
tions for each year for eighth
graders and above in their pro-
gram. Each athlete is required
to maintain at least a 2.0 but
those with upper-level achieve-
ment are considered for the
American Pop Warner All-
American recognition.


Local president Donna Parks
helped Claudia complete the
application, and sat back and
encouraged the young cheer-
leader. "Our Pop Warner has
been participating in the Pop
Warner organization with great
success for many years. Pop
Warner is a scholars program
that focuses on their players and
cheerleaders being physically
and academically fit at the start
of the season. Just as they must
pass physical, they must also
show report cards showing they
are scholastically sound," ex-
plained Parks. Others have
achieved All-American recog-
nition, but none has gone so far
as to get scholarships, added
Parks.
Claudia was recognized fist
with a $500 scholarship from
the local Foundation for Youth.
Development Pop Warner con-
ference in Tampa, which for-
warded her paperwork to the
region.
She and her parents attended
the Southeast Regional Pop
Warner banquet in Orlando on
March 31. Players and cheer-
leaders from Alabama, Missis-
sippi, Georgia and Florida
attended and many received
various recognition and

awards. Finally. it came down
to the final two 'ne football
player and on.. erleader to
get the top award, the $2.500
scholarship. The couple and
their daughter were shocked
and thrilled to have her honored
last and presented with the
major scholarship.
In addition, the young lady
has already been invited to the
National Scholastic Pop Warner
banquet in May. These have
been held in Pittsburg and
Boston, but this year is again in
Orlando at the Rosen Shingle
Creek Conference Center. The
national awards vary from $500
to $5,000.
Perhaps, Claudia's future will
be very assured with another
scholarship-.

S. Light One Candle

THE HERO WHO ABANDONED HIS FAMILY
Anyone who thinks they've got a family relationship that is
beyond repair needs to consider the story Rita Cosby shares in her
best-selling book, "Quiet Hero."
It was Christmas Eve 1983 when the future Emmy-award-win-
ning journalist and best-selling author heard her mother. Adda. and
father, Richard, having an argument. Richard told them he was
unhappy and was leaving the family.
The devastating news came out of nowhere for 19-year-old
Rita, her brother and her mom. To make it worse. Richard con-
veyed complete emotional detachment about his decision, and basi-
cally cut himself off from his family from then on.
Though Rita and her mother grew closer as a result, life was
still difficult, especially when Adda Cosby was dying of cancer.
Despite the unfairness of what was done to her, Adda continued to
tell her daughter, "You must forgive your father. He went through
some very difficult times."
As Rita explained to me on my "Christopher Closeup" radio
show, she had a feeling there was more to her father's past after
seeing many scars on his body during a camping trip when she was
8. Though she asked her mother about them, her response was sim-
ply, "We don't talk about that."
After Adda passed away, Rita and her brother were going
through her belongings when they came across an old leather suit-
case they'd never seen before. Inside, they found a rusty POW tag,
emblazoned with the words "Stalag IV B," a red and white fighting
armband covered with blood and dirt, and an identity card for a
POW named Ryszard Kosobudzki. Rita's investigative journalist
instincts kicked in and she realized that these items belonged to her
father, who had immigrated to the United States from Poland and
Americanized his name many years before.
She also decided that, as a Christian, she had to forgive him.
Rita contacted her father, who was now in his 80s. He had
watched her grow up through her television work on Fox News and
"Inside Edition," but was happy to reconnect with her in person
after years apart. Though she had every reason to act resentfully
toward him, Rita approached him from a place of love, of wanting
to genuinely know the whole story of her father's life.
Rita discovered that her father was 13 in 1939 when World
War II started in Poland with the Nazis dropping bombs on
Warsaw. The family tried to flee across the Romanian border, but
then discovered the Russians were approaching Poland from that
direction. Having been subjected to Russian brutality in the past,
the family opted to take its chances with the Nazis. Richard soon
joined the Polish resistance. Though he had an opportunity to be
smuggled out of the country, he said, "I would rather die with
friends than live with strangers."
Rita believes it was her father's mother who instilled him with
this courage, faith and love of country. She says, "You weren't
allowed to practice religion. The Nazis were prohibiting [people]
from exhibiting religious tendencies. But my father's mother had
a hidden altar in every single apartment they lived in, and every
day got up. and prayed. She said, 'The Lord is protecting us, the
Lord is going to save Poland. We must stand up on principle.' That
was the kind of home my father grew up in, and I think that's what
gave him this courage to fight for something so much bigger than
himself."
What Rita .discovered next would shed a lot of light on her
father's unemotional departure from his family when she was
young. I'll share that story in my next column.

Wild Life
By Kathy Barco
Fish & Wildlife Commission Chairman


FLORIDA BLACK BEARS
In the early 1970s, Floridablack bears dropped to their lowest
nurr bors on record; estimates were as few as 300 bears statewide.
Our predecessor agency, the Florida Game & Fresh Water Fish
Commission, stepped in and selected the Florida black bear as one
of the first listed threatened species in 1974, adding more protec-
tion to bears and their habitat.
But adding bears to a list alone does not recover a species.
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission and its
partners identify important wildlife habitats and work with private
landowners to keep those lands in conservation, whether through
easements and agreements through our Landowner Assistance
Program, or via purchases through programs like Florida Forever.
Statewide educational efforts teach thousands of people each
year about bears and how to avoid conflicts. Formal education pro-
grams like The Florida Black Rear Curriculum Guide bring bear
issues directly into the schools, .i informal efforts occur through
FWC staff time spent engaging'the'public at festivals and commu-
nity events.
The FWC also passed a rule that made feeding bears illegal,
allowing us to focus on the core cause of human-bear conflicts.
All of those efforts have combined to allow us to bring the
black bear back to about 3,000 animals today.
In late 2010, the FWC led a team of experts to review all the
data available on Florida black bears to see if the bears met the cri-
teria to be considered at high risk of extinction. The team found
that, the bear no longer met those criteria, and five additional exter-
nal species experts reviewed the report and agreed with the team's
recommendation to remove it from the threatened species list.
Former Chairman Rodney Barreto noted it was "A time to cel-
ebrate our success." We have more bears in Florida now than we
have had in the past seven decades.
Our work to manage Florida's black bear is a continuing
process. A team of FWC staff has been working diligently with
stakeholder groups to create a management plan for bears.
The bear's success is an example of what our threatened
species rule is designed to do: identify species that need our atten-
tion, act to conserve the species, and bring them back so that they
will never be at risk of extinction again.

DYING WITH DEBT: WILL YOUR CHILDREN INHERIT
YOUR OBLIGATIONS?
Dear Savvy Senior
.... hat happens to.ap.e.bnn's debt after they die? Aitage 78, -
have accumulated quite a bit of credit card and medical debt over
the past few years and am concerned about leaving my son and
daughter with a big bill after I die. What can you tell me?
Old and Broke
Dear Old,
In most cases when a person with debt dies, it's their estate,
not their kids that's legally responsible. Here's how it works.
When you die, your estate which consists of the stuff you
own while you're alive (home, car, cash, etc.) will be responsi-
ble for paying your debts. Whatever is left over is passed along to
your heirs as dictated by the terms of your will, if you have one. If
you don't have a will, the intestacy laws of the state you reside in
(see mystatewill.com) will determine how his estate will be dis-
tributed.
If, however, you die broke, or there isn't enough money left
over to pay your unsecured debts credit cards, medical bills, per-
sonal loans then your estate is declared insolvent, and your cred-
itors (those you owe) will have to eat the loss.
There are, however, a couple of exceptions that would make
your kids legally responsible for your unsecured debt after you pass
away: if your son or daughter is a joint holder on a credit card.
account that you owe on, or if they co-signed on a loan with you.
Secured debts loans attached to an asset such as a house or
a car are another story. If you have a mortgage or car loan when
you die, those monthly payments will need to be made by your
estate or heirs, or the lender can seize the property.
Untouchable Assets
You also need to be aware that there are some assets, such as
401(k) and 403(b) accounts, brokerage accounts, and some, life
insurance policies that creditors cannot get access to. That's
because these accounts typically have designated beneficiaries, and
the money goes directly to those people without passing through
the estate.
Tell Your Kids
If you haven't already done so, you need to inform your kids
and the executor of your will of your financial situation so there are
no surprises after you die.
If you do indeed die with debt, and you have no assets, settling
your estate should be fairly simple. Your executor will need to send
out letters to your creditors explaining the situation, including a
copy of your death certificate, and that will probably take care of
it. But, your kids may still have to deal with aggressive debt col-
lectors who try to guilt them into paying.
If you have some assets, but not enough to pay all your debts,
your state's probate court has a distinct list of what bills get prior-
ity. The details vary by state, but generally estate administrating
fees, funeral expenses, taxes and last illness medical bills get paid
first, followed by secured debts and lastly credit card debts.
Get Help
If you have questions regarding your specific situation, you
should consult with an attorney. If your need help locating one use
' findlegalhelp.org, a consumers guide created by the American Bar
Association that offers referrals and links to free and low-cost legal
help in your area based on your income level. If you don't have
internet access, call the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116 for
referrals.

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


THE RACE IS ON!
If this were a fox hunt, the call would be "release the hounds"
but in this case, I guess I should say, "release the teams!" The
Florida Cattlemen's Association Ranch Rodeo Finals are scheduled
for the weekend of Sept. 28-29, so mark your calendars now, and
the many teams already are fiercely trying for one of the coveted
16 spots.
The opening event is always the Polk County Cattlemen's
Association Ranch Rodeo, held in conjunction with its annual trade
show, at the arena located in south Bartow adjacent to U.S. 17. This
year it was Feh 16 nd thanks to the mild winter we have had. the

weather was superb!
This one requires that each team be sponsored by a Polk
County ranch or farm. There were 12 teams competing, and each
gets its own pretty colored scarves. The events were calf branding,
wild cow milking, double mugging, the stampede race, and wild
colt riding.
Hardee County was represented on two of the teams:
Belflower Cattle (a/k/a the Audubon Ranch team) and Stevens
Land & Cattle.
This year Charles Robert called upon his Hardee County cow-
poke buddies to fill out his team roster, with Matt Carlton, Jamie
Rewis and Dale Carlton competing on this team. Jay Belflower
headed up his team, along with Dennis Carlton Jr., Pat Thomas,
Slade Bronson and new female team member, Dallas Roberts.
Right out of the chutes, Stevens Land won the calf branding
event with a time of 32.68 seconds, and the second event, wild cow
milking, landed a win for Belflower Cattle. As has become com-
mon, a different team won each event, so those were the only wins
for our teams.
The times are not announced for the "multi" events (where
multiple teams compete simultaneously) of wild cow milking, the
stampede race and wild colt riding, and the times were hard to hear
for the other events, which is why this column is so sparse with
times.
But I do want to thank both teams for making my photography
so easy Joey Drake and Matt Carlton headed straight at me in
the wild cow milking event, trying to stop her long enough to get a

colt riding event. Dennis Carlton Jr. is behind Jay, hold-

dribble of milk in the bottle; and Jay Belflower took the head of the
wild colt, and also came straight at me in that event. (If I remem-
ber correctly, last year Jay was at the back end of the colt, and was
sent backwards about 15 feet when it landed a kick into Jay and
who says that cowboys don't learn from their mistakes?)
Matt must have arm-wrestled Joey for the position of rider in
the wild colt riding event, but the colt they had was almost comi-
cal it fought furiously against being saddled, but once Matt was
on its back, it would barely move. They waved their arms and
shouted, Charles Robert chased it on horseback, but it wouldn't
budge. The little bit that it did move, it kept turning back to the
chutes. They may have won that event, but as it was, Matt was
lucky to get it across the finish line!
And thus began Dale Carlton's new trend this year of landing
on his back in the dirt with one of the animals on top of him!
The season goes through the end of July, so there will be plen-
ty of more coverage on these events. Come see the Audubon/-
Belflower cowboys, as well as the Carlton Ranches (2010 win-
ners), Stevens Land & Cattle (2008 winners), and SMR/CJ Cattle
(the Tamme Miller Fussell family, and 2011 winners) at the
Working Ranch Cowboys Association ranch rodeo this Sunday at
the Arcadia Rodeo Grounds.
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.
Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding,
Cowboys and Cowgirls!

Hardee Girls Beat Teneroc 3-1


By 4JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a couple of tough loss-
es, the Hardee Lady Wildcats
won the week's finale over dis-
trict rival Teneroc last Thursday
night.
It came on the heels of home
losses to Auburndale and All
Saints' Academy and earned
Hardee a split with Teneroc for
the season. A coin flip left
Hardee third in the district play-
offs, which begin next week in
Auburndale. Auburndale and
Lake Wales split games during
the season and had not held a
coin flip by press time. Hardee
will play whichever is number
one.
The Hardee varsity led off
last week with a Tuesday home
loss to Auburndale 16-0. The
dy 'Cats had no answer for
dy Titan pitching and field-
;. Alex Ullrich, Karlee Hen-
rson, Kendall Gough and
rinna Fernandez were each
anded when they did get on
. -se.
The Lady Bloodhounds
scored in every inning but the
third, putting runs on the board


until the final eight in the top ot
the sixth which put the game
well out of reach.
Last Wednesday was Senior
Night in a varsity-only game
against All Saints' Academy of
Winter Haven. Lone senior
Courtney Parks was honored in
pre-game ceremonies.
A double and homer put All
Saints' on the board in the first
inning. For Hardee, a Hender-
son hit up the middle went for
naught. It was three up, three
down for each team in the sec-
ond and third innings.
In the fourth, All Saints'
again went down in order. A
Makayla Deuberry walk left her
on base as the inning ended.
In the fifth, All Saints'
picked up another pair of scores
on two hits and a double to cen-
terfield. Hardee left Rachel
Coker stranded.
In the sixth inning, it was All
Saints' which left a pair of run-
ners on base. HArdee got its
only tally. Ullrich singled and
* advanced on an error. Gough
walked and Henderson stroked
one up the middle to bring


Ullrich home.
Neither team scored in the
seventh inning, leaving All
Saints' the 4-1 winner.
The last game of the week
was home against Teneroc,
which picked up its only run in
the first inning.-A double to left
center left a runner in position
to fly home on an error on the
next baiter's hit.
Ullrich singled to start
Hardee in the home half of the
first, but was out trying to steal
third.
After holding the Lady Titans
to three up, three down in the





T-Ball Girls

By JOAN SEAMAN
Two games this week will
finish the season for the Tee-

Alexy, Laina Canary and Myia
Lamy. Mia Camilo-Taylor,
Ravin McCoy and Arianna
Rodriguez scores twice apiece
and Joceline Navarro, Elizabeth
Arana, Jada Altieri, Jensey
Hays and Alex Herrera each
chipped in with a run. Shea,
Jones didn't make'i-all the way
to home plate.
The two teams played again
last Thursday, with First Na-
tional claiming the 27-24
advantage.
Camilo-Taylor, Canary, Mc-
Coy Bailey Tinsley, Jones and

Aminerstruck it rich. Every time
he disappeared into the hills, he
cameupwithaveinthatwasbigger
and better.
"What's the secret?" asked his
friends.
"I keep digging." he answered.
Too many start, but they stop.
"Oh,"you say, "I've been afraid."
Stop yourfears oryourfears will
stop you.
' But," you add, "I've been
abused."
There's no'gain without pain.
St. Paul was pounded, pained
and persecuted. But he said, "Ican
do all things through Christ who
strengthens me." And he added,
so "I press on."
Won't you?

Getting A Head Start on 2012-2013 : "The Power of Choice"
by Mary Farr


I HHS IN PICTURES I


like to see offered at Hardee lHigh School
and would be willing to participate in. On
this form students listed the various courses
of interest, including some alternate choices
at the bottom. Students were encouraged to
use this process as an opportunity to have a
voice in his or her schedule for the upcoming
school year by being sure to turn in the Course
Request form by the deadline of Friday, March
23. The courses to be offered on campus
will be greatly influenced by your student's
opinion. The more 'votes' students give for
a particular course, the more likely it is to be
offered the true power of student choice.
Our goal is to provide the most
relevant and meaningful educational
experience we can for the students we serve.
The best way for us to achieve that goal is by
providing our students an opportunity to have
input in what the 2012-2013 course offerings
will look like at Hardee High School. So if
you know of a student that will be attending
Hardee High School next year, be sure to ask
them if they exercised their power of choice.

Advanced Placement courses to various career
oriented electives. Additional information
such as current graduation requirements and
the updated qualifications for Florida's Bright
Futures Scholarship Program could also be
found within this document. The current eighth
graders who will join us next year also received
this same information. On Thursday, March 1,
our high school counselors went out to Hardee

students are in full preparation for the
upcoming rounds, of state testing, and the
early signs of spring can be seen and heard

however, is not necessarily the case. Over the
past few weeks students have, in fact, had an
opportunity to directly influence the courses.

with us, as did Avie and Allen
Eures and Kaylee 'and T.K.
Hogenauer. Gavin was at
church with his dad.
We had so many babies cele-

church. There were Emmalyn
Chester, Addie Sonnier, Trenton
Duke and Sadie Ann McQuaig.
Of course, all their proud par-
ents, grandparents and great-
grandparents were there and

this helped make for a full
house! They all were so cute in
their Easter finery as were all
the young girls.
Joyce Coker had all the fami-
ly to her home for supper at 5
p.m. That makes it lots easier
than rushing home from church
and completing the real. Jes-
sica Gill was present but did not
make it in time for church but
came by. and she looks good
and is sporting a beautiful new
ring. Phillip was with her.
Amber Coker was up from
Miami for Easter and I know
they all had a wonderful time.
Bradley, Rebecca and Jere-
miah Yake visited his mother.
With them were Rebecca's
grandmother and her cousin,
Consuelo, from California, but
she said people called her
Connie. They all had a good
time visiting with Charlotte and
Mark Hogenauer, and Kaylee
joined them for Easter supper.
Mike and Roberta Alexander
had a full pew. Courtney is usu-
ally there but both of their boys
and wives were there along
with Dwayne and Kimberly's
new beautiful baby girl,
Alizabeth, celebrating her first
Easter.
Dennis and Beth Sasser
enjoyed Easter with Randi and
Jimmy home and his brother,
Henry, visiting for the day.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Mar-
guerite Carlton as she made her
final journey. She was one of
the classmates of Avis Sasser,
Margaret Searcy, Odell Lee and
others but I don't remember all
the names. The number is dwin-
dling as they all graduated some
time ago! Sympathy is also
extended to the family of
Sherry and Wesley Smith. Her
nephew, Philip Crislip, only 38,
made his final journey. They
live in West Virginia and be-
lieve he had a heart attack.
Tim Casey's brother's funeral
will be at Pleasant Grove on
Saturday, April 21, at 10:30
a.m. I
There will be a church work-
day this Saturday, but the
Methodist Cemetery workday
has been canceled. It will be
rescheduled. We wanted to
clean it before Homecoming,
which is May 6.
Sherman and I celebrated 14
years of marriage on April 4.
Time really does fly, but I think
it flies more for us who are get-
ting old!
Arthur Womack is still under
the weather. Lory Durrance 'is
able to be back at work. Joey
Smith, Nancy McQuaig's ne-
phew, was in a four-wheeler
accident. Mary Samuels is feel-
ing a little better but takes treat-
ment weekly. Pauline Walker is
in Lakeland Hospital. Please
pray for all of these.

You've probably noticed
more and more signs saying,
"We Buy Gold" around town.
With the high price of gold at
over $1,600 per ounce, a lot of
businesses have started buying
gold and silver. If you have gold,
where do you sell to get the best
price? Well, this week you can
cut out the middle man and sell
your gold where those "We Buy
Gold" businesses sell theirs.
This week, the Ohio Valley
Gold & Silver Refinery (yes, I
said refinery) will host an event
allowing the public to sell di-
rectly to them. This is the place
all gold and silver ends up-at
a refinery. The precious metals
are then melted and the impuri-
ties are removed. Gold and silver
bars are formed and then sold'to
industrial businesses, jewelry


WE WANT TO DO BUSINESS WITH YOU!
WE WILL TREAT YOU FAIRLY AND HONESTLY


manufacturers, investment hous-
es, countries and the like. Dur-
ing this event, the general public
will be allowed to sell their gold
and silver directly to the refin-
ery. This means more money in'
your pocket. The spokesperson
for the refinery said that they
will be purchasing all types of
gold jewelry-both white and
yellow. They will also be buying


dental gold, gold bullion, gold
coins and all other items made of
gold. 10k, 12k, 14k, 18k and 22k
jewelry is wanted in any condi-
tion. Silver jewelry, silver coins
.and silver bars, silver rounds and
silver bullion will also be pur-
' chased during this event. Other
items they are interested in are
things marked Sterling and .925.
