COOL CAT

With spring temperatures nearing the 90-degree mark, it already feels like summer in Hardee County. This cat goes
against his feline nature in an effort to beat the heat, lying in a puddle creating by a water hose and drinking from its

Two more. hopefuls have /

the other a veteran of local pol-
itics.
Richard "Dick" Daggett has
filed as a candidate for superin-
tendent of schools. He is run-
ning as a Democrat, and will
oppose incumbent David Dur-
astanti, a Republican. More
contenders for the top schools
spot may yet surface.
Anid for the County Com-
mission District 5 seat being
vacated by incumbent Dale
Johnson, Democrat Perry
Knight has now applied. He
joins Mikell "Mike" Thompson,
a Republican, and Loran Cog-
burn, who is running with no
party affiliation, in a bid for the
open spot. And the list of candi-
dates still has time to grow.
In all, 12 county offices are
up for grabs in this year's elec-

Bicyclist Hit By


Semi Identified


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Authorities have released the
identity of a man killed earlier
this month while bicycling
along U.S. 17.
Jonathan Albert Mills, 51, of
Wauchula, died on Saturday,
April 7, as he biked on the busy
highway in the area of Bostick
Road. the Florida Highway
Patrol said.
Mills was pedaling north-
bound on the paved shoulder of
U.S. 17 when he suddenly fell
off of or was ejected from his
bicycle. As he landed in the
inside lane of travel, his head
hit the, running boards of a pass-
ing semi, the FHP said.
Crash investigator Tpr. Rus-
sell Waldorff and homicide
investigator "Cpl. L.M. Smith
said the accident occurred at
12:10 p.m.
Mills had been riding on the
shoulder and was in front of the
2012 Freightliner that he later


struck as it went by, they
described.
The driver of the semi, Illya
M. Kelson, 44, of Avon Park,
pulled over into the right-turn
lane just north of the point of
impact, the FHP said. He was
not injured.
Mills, however, died at the
scene, becoming the third per-
son killed on Hardee County
roadways so far this year.
No charges will be filed in
the accident, the FHP said.
Mills' body was transported
to the Medical Examiner's
Office in Lakeland. Meanwhile,
authorities withheld his name
until his next of kin could be
located and notified.
His identity was released on
Monday.
Mills is survived by two
brothers, both of whom reside
in Georgia.
Graveside services will be
held this morning (Thursday) at
Friendship Cemetery.


Clerk Hugh Bradley, Tax Col-
lector Zee Smith and County
Commissioner Johnson are not
running for re-election.
So far, only Property Ap-
praiser Kathy Crawford, tax
collector hopeful Jacalyn
"Jackie" Johnson, Elections
Supervisor Jeff Ussery, County
Judge Jeff McKibben and
School Board District 3's
Teresa Crawford have not
drawn any competition.
But, there is still plenty of
time for that to change, and for
some of the other races to
acquire even more contenders.
Deadline for petitions to get
one's .name placed on the ballot
is May 7. Political. hopefuls
need only get the signatures of
122 registered voters in order to
run.
And that, Elections Super-
visor Ussery said, is a relatively
quick and easy requirement to
meet.


Driver Jailed




In Fatal Crash

Vehicular Homicide Charged


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The surviving driver in a
February head-on collision
which killed a 77-year-old
Wauchula woman has been
arrested and charged with
vehicular homicide.
William Thomas Davis, 29,
of 775 Bostick Road, Bowling
Green, was booked into the
Hardee County Jail on the sec-
ond-degree felony charge late
Friday afternoon by Cpl. Robert
Spencer of the Wauchula Police
Department.
Bond was set at $50,000.
In an interview with officers,
Davis denied his culpability,
Police Chief Bill Beattie said.
Instead, Davis asserted it was
Agnes Grimes, the driver of a
1999 Ford sport utility vehicle,
who crossed over the center
line, causing the Feb. 14 crash
on South Florida Avenue near
Peace Drive.
Investigating officer Det.
Kevin Brock, however, noted
witnesses to the crash and to
events preceding it refute
Davis' claims.

Man Shot
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Authorities are investigating
the early Sunday shooting. of a
42-year-old Bowling Green
man.
Jeffrey Gilmore, of 3924
Edison Ave., suffered a single
gunshot wound in his own
home shortly after midnight,
Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office said.
He is currently hospitalized" at
Lakeland Regional Medical
Center, the major added.
How he was shot remains in
question.
Dey said detectives have
been unable to interview Gil-


SUV alleged Davis' northbound
1991 Ford pickup truck
swerved into the southbound
lane. The witness alleged Davis
had been driving fast and errat-
ically, Brock charged.
Another witness told police
she was "in fear" of the way
Davis was driving to the point
she pulled off the roadway, he
further alleged.
Other reports indicate the
suspect had been involved in an
argument before driving away
and becoming involved in the
crash, Brock said.

more as yet. He does, however,
expect the man's condition to
improve to the point he can
answer detectives' questions.
Meanwhile, Dey said, anoth-
er occupant of the home has
described the shooting as acci-
dental, saying that Gilmore had
fallen asleep on a sofa with his
Derringer underneath him, and
that the gun went off when
Gilmore got up to go to bed.
A .22-caliber bullet entered
Gilmore under his arm and trav-
eled up into the neck area, Dey
said.

The administrative hearing to
settle a lawsuit filed by the
Florida Institute of Neurologic
Rehabilitation against CF In-
dustries and the Department of
Environmental Protection over
mining setbacks has concluded
in Tallahassee.
Both sides are awaiting the
administrative law judge's rul-

trative Hearings concluded on
March 29. Judge D.R. Alexan-

his ruling by the end of this
month.
Pending his decision, either
party will have the option to
appeal the ruling to the 1st
District Court of Appeal.
At issue is CF's plan to mine
its holdings next to FINR land.
FINR filed the suit in fear
that mining activity close to its
property line would affect the
hydrology of the land and the
wellbeing of its clients, most of
whom are recovering from head
injuries.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


The Story of Noah has been very successful for the first six
nights, with four more nights scheduled April 20-21 and 27-28,
reports Rev. Mike Graham, pastor of Real Life Church. He wrote
the play and portrays Noah.
His organization has also produced The Story of Jesus for 22
of the past 24 years.
Graham, 59, leads a cast of about 200 people, 50 support folks
and over 100 animals. His sons Ben and Luke wrote the music to
The Story of Noah. Graham has also portrayed Jesus for the 22 pro-
ductions.
The Story of Jesus will return in 2013. A decision has not been
made whether to alternate the productions in the future. The Noah
story is harder to do.
Attendance is on track to be the biggest in 10 years. The
Hardee Cattlemen's Arena will seat 1,600. Response has been
"tremendous" and "very positive," said Graham.
There are less than 80 tickets left for Friday and about 60 left
for Saturday. There have been visitors from Europe and Africa.
Tickets are $15 to $19.
For ticket information call 375-4031 or log in to
www.storyofnoah.org. -
The first day of ticket sales set a record at 3,000. Ticket sales
have passed 13,000, with 700 to 800 left. Ticket sales do not pay
for the costs. Donations help make the show possible.
This is about "Noah's incredible journey of faith and his strug-
gle to complete God's will in a dangerous and wicked world. Step
into the future for a glimpse of things to come and find a deeper
relationship with Jesus Christ."

The milk industry has a great ad slogan in "Got Milk?"
Citrus grower and harvester Steve Johnson would love to see
the orange juice industry have a snappy slogan.
Johnson says, "OJ is delicious, and you need to drink more."
He gave this info the big trucks and trailers filled with 600
boxes of oranges get about 5 miles to the gallon, full or empty. The
trucks have two 100-gallon tanks, and diesel fuel is $4.12 a gallon.
That's $824 for a fill-up.

Bowling Green Mayor Perry Knight on April 10 announced he
would resign as mayor to run for County Commission to represent
District 5. He is a Democrat.

The City of Bowling Green is now a drug-free workplace,
announced new city manager Jerry Conerly recently.

Former School Board employee Dick Daggett plans to run for
superintendent of schools this fall against incumbent David
Durastanti.

The Tampa Bay Rays are now 5-6 on the season after an open-
ing three-game home sweep against the New York Yankees.

Hopefully Hardee County will get some much-needed rain
within the next few days.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott has approved a new state budget of
just under $70 billion.
Ongoing State Sen. J.D. Alexander is hopeful USF
Polytechnic in Lakeland will become the state's 12th public uni-
versity. He said the facility would specialize in degrees of science,
technology, engineering and mathematics. This has been a contro-
versial topic in Polk and Hillsborough counties.
State Rep. Denise Grimsley, a Wauchula native who lives in
Highlands County, plans to run for Alexander's Senate seat this
year.

Wandering Toddler's Mom


Sentenced To Probation


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The mother of a toddler
found walking alone near a
busy intersection has been sen-
tenced to probation for child
neglect and drug charges.
Ashley Nicole Norman, 25.
of 209 W. Orange St., Wau-
chula. had appeared in Hardee
Circuit Court on March 27 for
what was to be her arraignment
on neglect of child, possession
of drug paraphernalia and pos-
session of methamphetamine
charges.
Instead, she entered a plea to
!end the case and was sentenced
to five years of supervised pro-
bation. In addition. Circuit
Judge Marcus J. Ezelle assessed
$520 in fines and court costs, a
$350 public defender fee, and a
$100 cost of prosecution fee.
Norman had been arrested by
Wauchula police on Feb. 28
after a concerned adult spotted
her 3-year-old walking alone on
West Bay Street, toward the


Norman
intersection with U.S. 17. The
little girl told responding police
that she was hungry and was
going to the store to get some
food.
After identifying and then
locating the child's mother,
police went to her door and
asked her if she knew where her
3-year-old daughter was. Police
Chief Bill Beattie said.
Norman answered that the
toddler was in bed sleeping.


Police then told her that, in
fact. her daughter had been
found walking on Bay Street
and had been taken to the police
station.
Beattie said Norman went to
the station to retrieve her child
and take her home. Meanwhile,
he said. Ofc. William Smith
prepared arrest documents for
Norman on the charge of child
neglect.
And when he and Det. Sgt.
Kevin Brock' went back to the
house to take Norman into cus-
tody, they spotted two plastic
bags filled with a white powder
in open view and within the
child's reach.
The chief said the powder
tested as an agent used to cut
methamphetamine. He also
noted a "bong" and scales were
found in the home.
Norman was arrested on the
neglect and added drug charges.
Beattie said. The child was
taken to her grandmother's
house.


Forging

By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 37-year-old Wauchula man
has been accused of offering to
provide counterfeit identifica-
tion cards to an undercover offi-
cer.
Angel Diaz Hernandez, of
305 Keeton Road, was booked
into the Hardee County Jail on
March 29 on charges of selling
forged government-issued IDs
and of using a communications
device in the commission of a
crime, both third-degree fel-
onies.
Maj. Randy Dey of the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office
said Hernandez was arrested
following an undercover inves-
tigation into the forged ID
trade.
He said an undercover officer
made several phone contacts
with Hernandez, ending with
the two agreeing to meet at a
convenience store at the inter-
section of U.S. 17 and North
Florida Avenue in Wauchula.
Hernandez told the officer he
would be standing outside
wearing a red shirt.
When the undercover officer
arrived, the suspect got into his
vehicle and gave him directions
to a house on Old Bradenton
Road. The two drove there, Dey
said, but did not stop there.
Instead, he described, they
drove back to the store's park-
ing lot.
It was then, he alleged, that
Hernandez took the officer's

Springs man in jail.
Cooking methamphetamine,

Charles Nicholas Skitka, 49,
of 2686 SR 64 E, was arrested
on multiple drug counts by the
Hardee County Drug Task
Force on March 30 after
deputies went to the home to
serve an unrelated warrant and
found a mini meth lab along
with their suspect, sheriff's
Maj. Randy Dey charged.
Officers cleared the residence
and called in a disposal compa-
ny to remove the volatile lab.
Meanwhile, Skitka was, ar-

They readily saw bags of
marijuana, cut straws with visi-
ble drug residue, foil "crank
boats" and a Gatorade bottle
with liquid and what appeared
to be fertilizer sitting on the
floor in front of a dresser, the
major alleged.
The bottle, he added, was
suspected to be what is known
as a "one pot" meth lab, and the
residence was cleared until it
could be safely stabilized.
In an interview with detec-
tives,.Skitka reportedly said he
put Coleman fuel and fertilizer
into the bottle, but denied trying
to make methamphetamine.
Skitka was booked into the
jail at 7:57 p.m. that same day.

Vandolah Road in Wauchula,
and is bordered by CF property
to the north, east and south.
In 2007 the 872 acres owned
by FINR were designated as'a
"rural center" in the county's
future land use codes, which
call for a quarter-mile, or 1,320-
foot, setback for mining activi-
ties from FINR's property lines.
The DEP gave CF a permit,
but did not recognize the coun-
ty-imposed setback or require a
specific setback, and FINR
owner Joe Brennick wants that
setback included in the permit.
West Palmer, the county min-
ing coordinator, said the coun-
ty-imposed setback of a quar-
ter-mile mark would keep CF
from mining 450 acres in the
proposed extension, which
totals 7,513 acres.
Palmer said county mining
regulations normally call for a
50-foot setback from neighbor-
ing property lines and a 500-
foot setback from any structure,
such as a house. A rural center
designation, however, brings
the wider setback.


Well, spring sports are nearly over.
Junior High volleyball ended last week. Tennis is over. JV baseball

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High vol-
leyball girls finished their sea-
son"flast Thursday. .. -..
In recent games, the eighth
grade girls broke through and
won in three sets over Hill-
Gustat, one of five middle
schools it plays in the Heartland
Conference. The others are
Avon Park, DeSoto, Lake
Placid and Sebring.
In each of its 10 contests this
season, the Hardee eighth grade
has been competitive but just
could not get over the hump. It
finally did against Hill-Gustat,
reversing the three-set loss to
the'Golden Eagles on March 5.
In the final two weeks of the
season, it was an uphill battle.
Just as Hardee improved as the
season stretched out, the other
teams did too.
Hardee eighth grade won the
first game against the Eagles
25-15, behind good serving.
Senida Garcia got Hardee going
with the first five points.
Brenda Miramontes pickedeup
two and Katie Forrester got a
half dozen more. With contribu-
tions from Josie Hancock and
Claudia Klein, it came down to
Cheyenne Pohl for points 20-
24. Miramontes got the final
point for the game-winner.
The Eagles came back to take
game two .25-17, despite the
efforts of Gabby Allen, Mireya
Mondragon, Emily Johnson,
Miramontes, Megan Grills, For-
rester, Garcia, Alexis Melendez,
Kristian Judah and Klein.
Down to the third game,
which has a 15-point limit. This
time, Hardee prevailed in the
third set, with serving by
'Mefendez, Pohl, Miramontes,
five points by Hancock and
eight by Mondragon and Han-
cock combined. Service never
got to Klein or Judah.
The seventh graders won
their first game against Hill-
Gustat 25-21. Rayann Kulig has
the strong hand, picking up
service points 3 through 10 and
the final two service points for
the win. Others in on the play
were Breanna Parker, Taylor
Graham, Jacey Solis, Arianna
peLaRosa, Amber Kilgore,
Desiree Ford and Audra Weeks.
Viridiana "Diana" Correa and
Samyia Williams got into the
action in game 2, which the
Eagles won 25-16. Williams got
three service points and Correa
one. Solis added four.
The final, and deciding, game
was a barn-burner, with points
flipping back and forth. Hill-
Gustat pulled out the two-point
wvin, 15-13.

You may know that the sun is the principal

Have you ever been outside on a partly cloudy
spring day of about 50F and felt quite
comfortable until the sun was suddenly
obscured by a cloud? Although the air temper-
ature had not had time to drop, you felt chilled,
as the cloud would not let the warming
infrared rays through to reach you.
Infrared heat is just like the heat from our sun
or that which our own bodies produce as they
burn fuel to keep us warm.

closed out last week with a dis-
trict win at home.
Hardee defeated Aubumrndale
4-2 behind the hurling and hit-
ting of senior ace Murrell
Winter.
The victory came on the heels
of losses to Lake Wales and
Fort Meade. This week, the
'Cats played at Fort Meade on
Wednesday and greet Avon
Park tonight (Thursday) for
Senior Night, when Ramiro
Briones, Dawson Crawford,
Deonte Evans, Dylan Farr,
Dalton Hewett, Justin Knight,
Carter Lambert, Mikey Retana,
Wintz Terrell and Winter will be
honored in pre-game cere-
monies.
Next week is district playoffs
at Teneroc. Seedings,haven't
been announced as yet.
Lake Wales 10, Hardee 0
The Highlanders had their
heavy bats going in this game at
Lake Wales. Taylor Cockrell,
Tate Mathewson and Zach
Calvin all hQmered. The home
team opened their chances at
the plate with an 11-player bat-
around which produced seven
runs.
After that, it was a pretty
even game, with the Calvin
Homer in the second, a Mat-
thewson hit and an error in the
fourth and one more score in
the fifth.
Hardee scoring opportunities
were few and far between: a
Knight single in the first inning
was nullified by a Terrell field-
er's choice; Cody Spencer
walked and was left aboard in
the third; and a Kris Johnson hit
-in the fifth was nullified by a

Fort Meade 3, Hardee 1
The Wildcats scored first, but
the Miners had the last word in
this game at Wildcat Stadium
last Wednesday. Kris Johnson
held Fort Meade to one hit in
the first inning. Hardee got
going in the home half of the
first. Evans w safe on an
error, stole second and went to
third on an overthrow. He came
home on a Terrell sacrifice
ground-out.
That 1-0 score held up until
the top of the fourth. The
Miners left a runner stranded in
the second inning and Hardee
left Evans on base in the third.
Fort Meade knotted the score 1-
1 in the fourth, when a hit, pair
of stolen bases and another hit
plated one, run.
A double-play eliminated
Hardee hopes in the fifth. Fort
Meade broke the tie with a run
in the sixth on a hit, pair of
walks and a sacrifice.
Hardee left Lambert on board
in the bottom of the sixth after
he sliced one up the middle and
stole second.
Fort Meade got an insurance
score in the top of the seventh.
Porter doubled and rode home
on a Brown double. When
Hardee went down in order in
the home half of the seventh,
Fort Meade had the 3-1 win.
Hardee 4, Auburndale 2
Winter had a successful night
for the Wildcats when they
hosted the Bloodhounds on
Friday night. He set Auburndale
down one, two, three in the first
inning, while Hardee plated a
pair of runs. Knight led off with
a walk and went to second on a
Johnson sacrifice. Terrell reach-
ed second 'on an error, which
allowed Knight to come home.

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 School. She
was active in FFA, where she
a 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 a 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 fresh in her hand, Kortney will
be working at Pet Care Center with Dr. Ross Hendry every Mon-
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 operating
Peace River Large Animal, Kortney still manages to find time
forfriends and family. She recently got married in November
to Lee Reddick, who grew up in Hardee County. They now re-
side in Wauchula, where Kortney plans to pursue her dream of
firmly establishing Peace River Large Animal.
"About a year ago, my wife and/I went and had lunch with
Kortney. What came in was a pretty girl with a sweet little voice
that said 'I waht to be a cow doctor'. I laughed and told her she
could be just that. She has come so far and I am so proud of her
accomplishments. She has a zeal and excitement for her work
that you don't see in a lot of veterinarians," Dr. Hendry 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 863-832-4008.
*** I wonder why we spent an excess of a million dollars decorating
Main Street, four laning US Hwy 17 North and South, and planting
all those beautiful crape myrtles and we always trim them just as
they bloom? ***

Greetings from Fort Green!
Hardee County has been rec-
ognized for so many undesir-
able things, but I sure hate the
one shown on television recent-
ly. We are the driest county in
the state and number one in
drought conditions. We really
need rain.
Melissa Davenport did a
super job planning the Easter
egg hunt the Saturday before
Easter for the youth. She really
works hard and is so organized.
Usually every child present
wins a prize and this year, like
last, we had three super top
prizes. Doris Kukwa and Jack
gave three baskets loaded with
treats and candy.
The boy basket was shaped
like a baseball and the girl like a
bunny rabbit and each had suit-
able gifts for girl or boy. The
last one was a covered basket,
and all were stuffed with the
good Easter candy like Russell
Stover, Dove, etc. Not the
cheap kind! We really appreci-
ate them being so helpful to the
youth of our church.
We always have a wooden
cross at our church on Easter
morning and everyone brings
different cut flowers to place in
the chicken wire surrounding
the cross, anything growing in
your yard, and you would not
believe how pretty it looks.
This is the focal point for taking
those Easter pictures.
There just wasn't sufficient
room in last week's columnn to
mention all the excitement on
Easter. We had a first with a
girl's quartet consisting of
Connie Abbott, Carol Brown,
B.J. Haney and Jane Kennedy.
They really sounded good.
Randy and Faye Davis made
a quick trip to Winter Park to
meet their daughter, Amy
Brown and family, the Saturday
before Easter, April 7, on an
important mission. Johnmark
had located a new car for Beka
Land her first. It is unbelievable
that she is already old enough to
have her own vehicle but as
I've said before the older we
get, the quicker time flies.
After taking care of business
they all enjoyed dinner together
and then had to return to their
respective homes in completely
different directions. John-
mark's Easter services included
sunrise service.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of
Sharon Lee. She made her final
journey early last Friday morn-
ing.
Our sincere sympathy is also

:.ihng f'ir-We'.IeV and Rda Ter-
rell Family ,Reunion on March
31. '*

as Arizona to enjoy fun, food and
catching up with each other.
The original 10 siblings are
now deceased but are fondly re-
membered by Katie and Myra
Terrell, spouses of Grover and
Gene Terrell, and all others.
Food was in abundance with a
pig and chicken roast topped off
with a buffet of covered dishes


and desserts.
_The youngest enjoyed swim-
ming and boating in zh Florida
sunshine.
Bubba (Lance) Whidden and
his son, Steven, along with fel-
low band members Reid Crews
of Wauchula and Robbie Music
of LaBelle provided the enter-
tainment by playing in the morn-
ing and the afternoon. Even the
teenagers agreed they were
great, and wanted them to play
at their prom!
Family members had a good
time at the event, and are look-
ing forward to the next reunion.

Two good looking Wauchula
teenagers will reign as King and
Queen of the Hardee High
School Spring Festival until this
time next year. Crowned
Tuesday night as Spring
Festival royalty were Bobbie
Griffin, a junior from
Wauchula, and Wilson Smith, a
senior also from Wauchula.
Bobbie's parents are Mr. and
Mrs. Theron Griffin and Wilson
is the son of Mr. and Mrs.
Malcolm Smith.
Hardee County will not be a
"significant factor" in the
spring tomato deal, Frank
Conner, manager of the
Wauchula Farmers Market, pre-
dicted this week. Connor said
much less acreage was planted
in tomatoes this season and
much of what was planted has
been badly damaged by the cold
weather.
Over a year after Hurricane
Donna's high winds lashed
Wauchula, the city has gotten
its final check from the Civil

relief. The check for $9,000
received by the city this week
brings the total awarded to the
city to $99,750.

spring fashion with nests of col-
oreu eggs and Easter bunnies.
The -Hardee Boy's Track
Team finished the season with a
record of 16-1-1. Coach Randy
Thompson was pleased with the
team's record but disappointed
because of the loss of Frank
Romeo in the Heartland

Thursday in Fort Meade.
Hardee would have been a co-
favorite with Avon Park to win
the meet had Romeo been able
to compete.

changes in the age groups mak-
ing up the population of Hardee

dren age 12 and under admitted free of charge. All concert proceeds
benefit park improvement projects and provide a wonderful way to.
relax and enjoy the arts. We hope that you will join us for this
unique musical experience, out here in the Real Florida.

By PAIGE FARR
Special To The Herald-Advocate
'I Interviewed Carol Farr. Many peo-
ple know her as "Mema."
Carol grew up in Sebring, on Lake
Jackson. She had one brother and one
sister. Carol was born on July 2.
She went
to Sebring
High 10 ,, It \t
School.
Carol's dad
- J.M. McAdams, known as "Pink" -
took her to school during ninth and 10th
grades, then she drove her own car to
school during the 11th and 12th grades.
Carol's job during high school was
babysitting, and she was involved in a
summer program where she was a life-
guard. She enjoyed going to basketball
games and football games. Carol's sum-
mer activities included anything she
could do in the water, like swimming
and skiing. She loved living on Lake
Jackson because this gave her the
opportunity to do things she loved to
do. She was also a cheerleader for SHS
and she enjoyed cheering at the football
games for the Blue Streaks.
Carol's favorite family vacation was
going to Silver Springs in Ocala where
she could play in the cool waters of the
springs.
When Carol graduated from SHS,
she went to Florida Southern College in
Lakeland for two years and got her
associate of arts degree. Carol was also
a cheerleader for Florida Southern.
When she graduated from college
with her AA, Carol became an art
teacher and a teacher's aide at Polk
Avenue Elementary. She worked there
for seven years. Carol also worked at
Babson Park Elementary as a kinder-
garten aide.
Carol married Walter Farr and they
had four children: Steve, Elizabeth,
Scott and Keith. Carol's husband Walter
was in the Army and they had to go to


COURTESY PHOTO
Walter & Carol Farr
Germany for a time, where their third
child, Scott, was born. They liked living
in Germany. Carol said it was cold but
they loved getting to travel to Italy and
getting to see Hitler's Eagles Nest.
With four active kids they were a
busy family. Their favorite family vaca-
tion was going to Cherokee, N.C.,
camping. Carol's favorite thing about
having kids was watching them grow
and being able to enjoy their activities.
The biggest change Carol has seen
since she was younger was that back in
the '50s you knew everyone and you
felt like you could trust people. You
didn't have to worry about not being
safe. She says you have to be more
careful nowadays.
She does feel like she lives in one of
the safest places possible, though. She
loves Hardee County and has been liv-
ing here for 31 years.
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.

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


FLORIDA STATE FAIR RANCH RODEO
One of the Florida Cattlemen's Association qualifying ranch
rodeos is held annually as part of the Florida State Fair.
There are four performances, consisting of 3-5 teams -each,
and this year they were on Feb. 15 and 16. (For anyone paying
attention, Feb. 11 was the Polk County Cattlemen's ranch rodeo.
Sorry.)
Of the 17 teams competing in these four performances, Hardee
County was represented on four of them: M&N Cattle, JTF
Performance Horses, the Carlton Ranches and Audubon Ranch.
These teams put their best feet forward in the race for the
finals. Each qualifying event must have at least three events that
will be used in the finals, so here there was calf branding, wild cow
milking, double muggin', team doctoring, the stampede race, and
bronc riding.
M&N Cattle rode in the Wednesday afternoon performance,
with team members Peck and Ty Harris, Matt Smith, Cody
Robinson and female team member Christy Newsome. (Ty left the
next day to live in Texas, so his General Custer red hair will be
missed at these events!) This is a new team make-up, so they are in
the "getting used to each other" phase but they received a time
in each event, which is what counts. All their times were in excess
of one minute, except for the wild cow milking, which they com-
pleted in 53.04 seconds. And Ty's bronc ride brought in a
respectable score of 61.
Next up, in Wednesday evening's performance, were the
Fussells (JTF Performance Horses). Tamme, husband Jimmy, son
Jamie, nephew Robert, and honorary family member Brandon
Dieter made up this team. They received times in every event but
the double muggin', when the steer crossed back over the line on
them. They won the wild cow milking event, with an awesome
time of 16 seconds flat. And their team doctoring time was 17.37
seconds (which got beat by two other teams). Bronc rider Robert
(who is now a resident of Wauchula) got a score of 58 on his bronc
ride even riding with an injured hand.
Thursday afternoon's performance saw the Audubon Ranch
team compete, with Jay Belflower, William Perry, Dennis Carlton
Jr., Pat Thomas and new female team member Dallas Roberts.
They had a rough go of it, with their calf crossing back over the line
in both the branding and double muggin' events. But both the wild
cow milking and team doctoring events saw them shine, with times
of 23.4 seconds and 23.25 seconds, respectively, and Dennis' bronc
ride score was 62.
But they can breathe easy until, September! This exact team
won the Hendry County ranch rodeo later that month, at the
LaBelle Swamp Cabbage Festival. Congratulations!
Last to ride was the Carlton Ranches in the Thursday evening
performance, with team members Dale and -Matt Carlton, Trae
Adams, Jamie Rewis, and helping out was Charles Robert Stevens
III. Consistency pays off they completed the calf branding in
43.16 seconds (plus a five-second penalty), the wild cow milking
in 45.57 seconds (with Dale's second rodeo on his back underneath
the bovine!), the double muggin' in 46.43 seconds (plus a five-sec-
ond penalty), Jamie did the stampede race in 53.22 seconds, and
the team doctoring event in 28.91 seconds. Matt's bronc ride was
the second highest score, 64 (the winning score was 67). This con-


New Wauchula resident Robert Fussell received a score
of 58 for his bronc ride, for the JTF Performance Horses
team.


sistency gave them a second place overall.
* Special congrats to both Tamme Miller Fussell and Jamie
Rewis for their less-than-one-minute times on the stampede race -
they showed those young 'uns that mature women can hold their
own!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.

Tee-Ball Girls Finish Up


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The littlest of the girls play-
ing softball for Miss Hardee
Softball ended their season last
week.
Mosaic and First National
split their final games. Over the
season Mosaic won more than
First National. Ironically, the
final two games had identical
22-14 scores, with each team-
winning one of the games.
On April 10, Mosaic claimed
the 22-14 win.
Leadoff batter Destiny Dris-
kell put four runs on the board
for Mosaic. Alizae Bias, Trista
Gillaird and Jacqueline "Jack-
ie" Flores each chipped in with
three runs and Hailey Bryant,
Emilee Worden and Adrianna
Urbina added twin scores.
Jordyn Dimock, Olivia Coble
and Careli Mendez each scored
once. Other Mosaic players are
Yuliana Cervantes and Drew
Beattie.
Laina Canary, Ravin McCoy,
and Myia Lamy were each
twin-tally batters for First
National. Emmie Alexy, Bailey
Tinsley, Alex Herrera, Arianna
Rodriguez, Jensey Hays, Shea
Jones, Elizabeth Arana and
Morgan Parks each chipped in
with a run. Other First National
players are Mia Camilo-Taylor,
Jada Altieri and Joyceline
Navarro.
Last Thursday night, First
National reversed the course
and won 22-14.
-Rodriguez was the only First
National batter to get around
the bases all three times she
came to bat. Camilo-Taylor,
Canary, McCoy, Lamy, Tinsley,
Hays and Alteri were two-score
batters and Alexy, Jones,
Navarro and Parks each added a
run.


Driskell, Gilliard, Flores and
Worden each put a pair of
scores on the board for Mosaic.
Blas, Cervantes, Beattie, Coble
and Mendez each added run.

three legs together, while teammates Dale and Matt
Carlton hold it and Jamie Rewis (far right) helps hold its
head down in the double mugging event.

Performance Horses teammates hold the calf down: son

Jimmy roped the calf, and is on horseback out of the

Girls Head To District Softball Hardee Has 4 District Track Champions


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee girls softball
teams both split their game last.
week, losing to Desoto and win-
ning at Avon Park.
Big wins at Avon Park on
Thursday were a good prepara-
tion for district playoffs this
,week at Auburndale. Hardee
started on Tuesday at 7 p.m.
against No. 2 seed Lake Wales.
Lake Wales and Auburndale
tied and flipped a coin with
Auburndale winning and host-
ing Teneroc on Monday night.
Hardee finished third in the dis-
trict standings, splitting games
with Teneroc and winning the
coin toss for ranking.
DeSoto 11, Hardee 2
Hardee hosted southern rival
DeSoto last Tuesday but it was
the visiting team which went
mne with the win.
.he Lady Bulldogs plated
.e runs in the opening inning
a combination of hits and a
k, a Makayla Jeter double
ig the big hit.
rfardee responded -in the bot-
tom of the first with one run.
Alex Ullrich opened with a sin-
gle but was caught stealing.
Addison Aubry was safe on an
error, advanced on passed balls
and was at third ready to come
in when Kendall Gough sin-
gled. It was 3-1.
DeSoto tacked on another trio
of tallies in the second :inning,
with a single, double and Kat-
elynn Johnson homer. Hardee
left Caryssa Johnson and Ul-
lrich stranded on .the base paths.
DeSoto broke the game open
in the third inning with seven
runs on five hits and two walks,
taking a 13-1 advantage. Har-
dee picked up. a iun in the home
half of the inning. Karlee Hen-
derson drew a walk;, advanced


on sacrifices by Gough and
Makayla Deuberry and raced
home on a Kim Derringer hit to
left field.
DeSoto got one run in the
fourth and another two in the
fifth to win 16-2
Hardee 18, Avon Park 2
It was the opposite story at
Avon Park on Thursday night.
The Lady Red Devil pitcher had
difficulty, walking a number of
Hardee batters, who scored
along with those getting good
hits.
It was a bat-around for Har-
dee in the top of the first inning.
Arissa Camel, Henderson, Deu-
berry, Gough, Derringer, John-
son, and Rachel Coker all
crossed home plate. Coker
tripled and came in on a
Karinna Fernandez sacrifice. It
was 7-0.
Avon Park picked up its pair
of rims in the home half of the
first. The first batter was hit by
a pitch and the next went to
bunt her over and no one was
covering first base. The two
runners rounded the bases on a
pair of hits to make it a 7-2
game.
Hardee plated a pair of runs
in the top of the second. Camel
started it with a single, stole
second and came in on an error
and overthrow on a Gough hit..
Henderson walked after Camel
and came home on the same
error. It was 9-2.
The Lady 'Cats added anoth-
er nine scores in the top of the
third, with a dozen batters going
to the plate on a combination of
walks and errors. Fernandez
scored twice and Camel, Anna
Galvez, Aubry, Gough, Der-
ringer, Coker and Johnson also
crossed home plate.
When Avon Park went down
quickly in the bottom of the


third the game ended on the 10-
run mercy rule.
JV Games
The junior varsity Lady 'Cats
finished their 12-9 season with
the same split, losing 11-2 to
DeSoto and winning 21-1 at
Avon Park.
In the opener, Hardee didn't
get on the board until the home
half of the sixth inning. Breanna
Godwin singled, advanced on
an Abigail Vargas sacrifice and
raced home on a Tiffany Flores
hit, making it a 3-1 game.
DeSoto, however, came back
in the top of the seventh to
score eight runs and put the
game out of sight. Hardee got
one run in the seventh. Brooke
Dixon doubled and came home
on an Isabel Abel hit, making
the final score 11-2.
The JV girls reversed that and
more at Avon Park on Thursday
evening. A combination of
walks and hits put Hardee up
12-0 before Avon Park came to
bat. The big blow as a Kayla
Garay homer in deep left field.
Holding Avon Park to three up,
three down, Hardee went back,
to work, sending eight batters to
the plate and bringing Abel and
Anjelica Jackson home to make
it 14-0.
The junior Lady Devils got
their only run in the bottom of
the second inning on a hit,
stolen base and an error.
Hardee kept scoring on hits
and walks in the top of the third,
adding seven runs by Kourtney
Henderson, Abel, Noemi Na-
varrro, Jackson, Maria Moralez,
Godwin,. Vargas and Dixon.
Avon Park went up and down in
order and the game ended with
the junior Lady 'Cats claiming
the 21-2 win.


Don't let the fear of the time it will take to accomplish something stand in the way of your
doing it The time will pass anyway; we might Just as well put that passing time to the, best
possible use.

FROM


^ i SOWER



Samuel Morse, an American
painter, went to Europe to
study art. As soon as he set-
tied down, he realized that it
would be months before a let-
ter from his mother would
reach him.
In his distress he wrote her,
"Three thousand miles aren't
.passed over in an instant."
Then he asked, "Why must
this be?"
Immediately he began ex-
perimenting with long dis-
tance communication. With
God's help, he invented the
telegraph and Morse code. It
was the love that he had for
his mother that led him to ac-
tion. '.
It was God's love for us
that led Him to send His Son
to redeem us. And it is our
love for'.Him that leads u iot
communicate with Him. .
When we truly love God,
we communicate--with Him.
. constantly through our
prayers. The more we love
Him, the more we communi-
cate with Him and seek His
guidance in our lives._


How tar win you travel to eat at your ravoe restaurant uur
tiny friends the hummingbirds fly thousands f miles each year
when the weather turns warm once more. With=their needlelike
beaks and humming wings, they miraculously remember and
return to their providers' feeders and gardens year after year.
The Lord will guide and provide for us, also. In Psalms
145:9, David praises his Creator..."The Lord is good to all,
and His compassion is over all that He has made."This week,
travel to your house of worship to remember your Creator. He
awaits to provide you with spiritual food for life.

Our Faye
Faye, you mean the world to me
You've been the very best of friends
I just wish I could've been there
For you in the end.
Remember your brother's big white truck
We had until we found our high
You were down for whatever
Always ride or die.
You'll be truly missed
Since you've touched so many lives
I will not mourn your death
Instead I celebrate your life.
You left your mark as daughter, sister,
Mother, Grandma, and friend
I believe in Jesus
So I know I'll see you again.
Yo will always hold a place
Deep inside our hearts
Insuring from this world
You'll never truly part.
So, I'm going to fill a glass
And raise it to the sky
For Jesus says, "Believe in Me and you will never die."

CHRISTIANS INHERIT MORE THAN THE WIND
Easter, that time of year when Christians all over the world
reflect upon the most awesome event in mankind's recorded histo-
ry. has come and gone again.
Two thousand years ago, in Jerusalem, a mn ... called Jesus who
performed miracles and claimed to be God, suffered torture and
death. Three days after His execution a great stone sealing His
tomb was rolled away. His body was gone.
Over the next few days Jesus appeared unto his disciples. One
of them, Thomas, from whence our term "doubting Thomas"
comes, refused to believe until he put his finger into the nail holes
in the Master's hands. Then his eyes were opened and he recog-
nized the Lord.
As we press on into the 21st century, technology is leaving
spirituality sputtering in the dust. Many worship at the University
of Science not the Altar of God. Reason has replaced faith and evo-
lution is taught in schools as cries of objection arise at any hint of
creationism, or "intelligent design."
But science and reason, before the Wright brothers built their
flying machine, "proved" man would never fly.
Albert Einstein said: "I believe in the God who reveals himself
in the orderly harmony of what exists. ... It is enough for me to
contemplate the mystery of conscious life perpetuating itself
through all eternity, to reflect upon the marvelous structure of the
universe we dimly perceive and to try humbly to comprehend even
an infinitesimal part of the intelligence manifested in nature."
Einstein also stated,, "The entire universe is a gigantic intel-
lect."
William Paley told a story of a watch and. a watchmaker. If a
man never having seen a watch finds one and takes it apart and
examines the many complex pieces that fit together so perfectly to
make it run so precisely, will common sense prompt him to con-
clude the watch was created, or will he believe it came into exis-
tence by chance?
World renowned scientist and theologian, Dr. Gerald
Schroeder, has concluded that it is absolutely impossible that life
on earth could have happened by pure chance. (See Schroeder's
books: "Genesis & the Big Bang," "The Science of God," and "The
Hidden Face of God.")
Former atheist Mike Adams, now a professor of criminology
of the University of North Carolina Wilmington and columnist for
Townhall.com, agrees with -author Frank Turek that truth is
absolute and not as Princeton University's ethics department chair-
man Peter Singer claims, relative, depending on one's perspective.
Adams also echoes Turek's statement, "I don't have enough faith
to be an atheist."


Many contemporary scientists agree that evolution has hap-
pened, but only to a degree. They doubt it's the whole story -
more like a parenthetical aside to the incredible and inconceivable
miracle of creation.
Some of society's ideas about evolution are based on the
movie, "Inherit the Wind," about the 1925 Scopes "Monkey Trial"
in Tennessee. The movie was based on a collection of essays by the
great intellectual debunker, H.L. Mencken, who had his own agen-
da and was careless in reporting the substance of the trial. (For the
truth about the events leading up to the Scopes trial, and the trial
itself, see the book by Marvin Olasky and John Perry, "Monkey
Business: The True Story of the Scopes Trial.")
In spite of the anti-Christian propaganda pouring out of
Washington these days, God and the Bible were immensely impor-
tant in the creation of our Constitution, and in his book "The 5,000
Year Leap: A Miracle that Changed the World," Dr. W. Cleon
Skousen says if we take God and the Bible out of the Constitution,
it won't work.
Powerful forces have undermined the very religion upon
which America was founded and ridicule Christians as they preach
tolerance for every other religion in the world. Still, Christians
around the world celebrate Easter and will continue to until the end
of time.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
Later, Jesus talked to the
people again, saying, "I am
the Light of the world. The
person who follows Me will
never live in darkness but
will have the light gives
life (eternal)."
John 8:12 (NCV)
FRIDAY
Jesus said, "I am the Bread
of Life. The person who
aligns with Me hungers no
more and thirsts no more
(spiritually). ... I'm telling
you the most solemn and
sober truth now: whoever
believes in Me has real life,
eternal life. I am the Bread of
Life. ... I am the Bread liv-
ing Bread who came down
out of heaven. Anyone who
eats this Bread will live -
and forever!"
John 6:35,51,58 (ME)
SATURDAY
(Jesus said), "I am the Good
Shepherd. The Good Shep-
herd lays down His life for
the sheep. ... I am the Good
Shepherd and know My own
sheep, and they know Me."
John 10:11,14 (TLB)
SUNDAY
Jesus said to him, "I am the
Way, and the Truth, and the

John 14:6 (RSV)
MONDAY
(Jesus said), "I am the real
vine; my Father is the vine-
dresser. ... You must go on
growing in Me, and I will
grow in you. ... I am the vine
itself; you are the branches.
It is the man who shares My
life and whose life I share
who proves'fruitful. For the
plain face is that apart from
Me you can do nothing at
all."
John 15:1,5 (PME)
TUESDAY
So Jesus spoke again, "In
truth, in very truth I tell you, I
am the door of the,sheep-
fold. ... I am the door.
Anyone who comes into the
fold through Me shall be
safe.' He shall go in and out,
and shall find pasturage."
John 10:7,9 (NEB)
WEDNESDAY
I am the Alpha and the
Cmega the beginning
and the end," says the Lord
God. I am the One who is,,
who always was, and who is
still to come, the Almighty
One." ... (Jesus said),
"Don't be afraid. I am the
First and the Last. I am the
Living One who died. Look, I
am alive for ever and ever;
and I hold the keys of death
and the grave."

CHURCH NEWS
By Diane Burget
Maxine Stromme greeted us
with a warm welcome as we
entered for worship this Palm
Sunday, April 1. Our worship
service began with congrega-
tional singing of "Are You
Washed in the Blood?" "Room
at the Cross for You" and "Near
the Cross." Our choir's special,
directed by Nancy Morrison,
was entitled "Nobody Cared."
The offering prayer was given
by Don Merillat, and Lowell
Gordon and Bill Burget collect-


ed the offering.
Pastor Bob Winne's message
was regarding the "Triumphful
Entry" of Christ. Following the
message, we observed Holy
Communion. Don Merillat and
Pastor Winne gave the prayers
for the communion elements.
Gary Householder, Bill Burget
and Jerry McBride served as
communion stewards.
WELCOME TO PARADISE
The end of another great sea-
son is coming to an end. Safe
trip to everyone who has yet to
travel North. Doug and I wish
everyone a happy, healthy and
safe summer. Keep your new
picture directory handy so you
will be able to see who the per-
son is I am sending out a CLV
Update only.
Hopefully, the news this sum-
mer is all good. Keep in touch
and let me know about any spe-
cial occasions you may be cele-
brating over the summer or any
friends who may need some
cards and prayers.
Doug and I are again hosting
the 10th annual Crystal Lake
Reunion at Bass Lake, Ontario.
We hope to have a good turn-
out, with all the old attendees
and a lot of new attendees. I
cannot believe how many years
ago it was that we were sitting
on Liz and Gary Walmsley's
island wondering if we still had
our trailers at Crystal Lake after
Charley. It was a small group,
and no one had been able that
day to get in touch with anyone
at Crystal Lake.
A special thank you to Diane
Burget on her Church News and
to everyone who helped me
with my activities this winter.
Until November, may God
bless you and your family.


Letter To The Editor

'Love For Lea' Benefit


Generates
Dear Editor,
Together' our sum is far great-
er than the sum of our individu-
als combined. Together we can
make positive changes in both
our own and other people's
lives.Together as a focused unit'
we can accomplish amazing
things.
The Frank Sinatra song may
be correct "an ant can't move a
rubber tree plant," but although
the ant can't, the colony with
direction and purpose can. Just
as the journey of a thousand
miles starts with a single foot-
step, great accomplishments are
initiated by the simple, individ-
ual act of reaching out and gath-
ering with our friends and our
families.
I urge you to reach out to
your friends while you still can.
Reach out to your friends, to
friends of your friends, and
even to complete strangers. By
networking we are able to cre-
ate a web of charity, trust and
co-dependence. When focused
correctly, this web can be used
to plan little ways to make the
lives of those around us slightly
less uncomfortable.
We had a great turnout at the
"Love for Lea" Benefit: It was
good to see old friends and to


Over $5,000
make some new ones. Included
in the over 500 in attendance
were Russ and Wanda Leonard.
I think Wanda eloquently sum-
med it up when she said, "It
never ceases to amaze me that
in! addition;to'ffleeds and class-;;
mates, perfect strangers join'i
right in and help the cause."
While enjoying a full day of
music we served around 150
dinners. This coupled with the
silent auction, the raffle, and the
generosity of donors generated
over $5,000 for Lea. You all
should feel proud of yourselves
and your neighbors. Thanks to
all the individuals and business-
es that donated time, ideas,
items, services, food and
monies to our cause.
In closing I would ask one
more thing of anyone and
everyone reading this. Please'
keep up your prayers for Lea
and her family. Please reach out
to and gather with your brothers
and sisters from all walks of
life. Please bring to light all oth-
ers in need of our love, support
and prayers. In doing so, we can
collectively be greater than Our
sum.
Thanks again to all,

April 19, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 7C


In writing my article for the newspaper, it occurred to me that
perhaps it would be interesting to write a history of museums them-
sel'/es.
When people hear the word "museum," they most likely think
of a large building full of "old stuff." Or they might think of art col-
lections or maybe even Ripley's museum of oddities.
But, museums educate and amuse, and there are more than
17,500 museums throughout the United States.
"Night at the Museum," the 2006 movie about a watchman
who discovers the museum exhibits come to life at night, honed in
on the stereotype of museums as being boring, but filled with real- *
ly cool stuff. Despite any bad reputation for being boring, more
than 850 million people visit the nation's museums each year.
Why? Phillippe de Montebello, former Metropolitan Museum of
Art director, explained it simply, "A museum is the memory of
mankind."
The word "museum" has ;sical origins. Its Greek form,
mouseion, meant "seat of the Muses" and designated a philosoph-
ical institution or a place of contemplation. The Greeks built a tem-
ple to "the Muses," who kept watch over the arts and sciences and
later filled their temples with both sculpture and scholars.
In Roman times the museum seemed to have been restricted
mainly to places of philosophical discussion. The great Museum at
Alexandria, founded by Ptolemy I Soter early in the 3rd century
BC, with its college of scholars and its library; was more a proto-
type university than an institution to preserve and interpret materi-
al aspects of history. The term museum was meant to describe a
collection rather, than anactual building.
The concepts of preservation and interpretation form the basis
of the museum and lie in the human need ,to acquire 'and inquire.
Collections of objects have been found in Paleolithic burials, while
evidence of inquiry into the environment, and communication of
the findings, can be seen in ancient cave drawings.
The Greeks and Romans not only filled their temples with
works of art and natural curiosities, they also included exotic items
brought from other parts of the empire. Closer to the concept of a
museum was the Greek pinakotheke, established in the 5th century
BC on the Acropolis at Athens, which housed paintings honoring
the gods. Romans had a real interest in art shown in public places,
but there were no museums. Agrippa, a deputy of Augustus, com-
mented in the 1st century BC that paintings and statues should be
available to the people.
The first corporate body to receive a private collection, erect a
building to house it, and make it publicly available was the
University of Oxford. Known as the Ashmolen Museum, it opened
it 1683.
Before the end of the 18th century the phenomenon of the
museum had spread to other parts of the world. In 1773 in the
United States the Charleston Library Society of South Carolina
announced its intention of forming a museum. Its purpose was.to
promote the better understanding of agriculture and herbal medi-
cine in the area.
Another early institution, the Peale Museum, was opened'in
1786 in Philadelphia by painter Charles Wilson Peale, who filled it
with his own portraits of George Washington and later with bones
unearthed of a North American wooly mammoth.
By the early 19th century the granting of public access to for-
merly private collections had become more common. One of the
most famous museums in the world, the Smithsonian Institution in
Washington, D.C., came into existence through the remarkable
bequest of nearly one-half million dollars from James Smithson, an
Englishman. He wished to see established in the United States an
institution. "fortheoinoreeae and diffusion of; knowledge among'
m en." 1 1 -, .
In 1846 the U.S. Congress accepted his bequest and passed
legislation establishing the Smithsonian Institute, comprising sev-
eral museums, most of which stand along the Mall in Washington
D.C.
Did you know that the Cracker Trail Museum has its own con-
nection to the Smithsonian Institution? In the 1960s, the Explorer
Scout Troop 410 unearthed a mastodon in Hardee County, which
was sent to the Smithsonian. An exact replica of its jawbone was
made by the Smithsonian and is on display in the Cracker Trail
Museum, along with a certificate from the Smithsonian. ,
So, we are more than just a building full of "old stuff" we
take pride in preserving the cherished past of Hardee County for
future generations, and we are certainly not boring! Come and see
for yourself!


Inside Out
T By Chip Ballard


CREATION, TOOLS, ART & EVOLUTION
When we highly-advanced 21st- century sophisticates hear the
word "technology," we just naturally think of computers scanning
the sum of man's knowledge in the bat of an eye or starships zoom-
ing through the galaxy at the speed of light.
We tend to forget that, basically, technology refers to the abil-
ity of human beings to make things that sustain them and give them
some control over their environment.
The earliest technology consisted of stone tools made by chip-
ping away at one stone with another, creating an edge, making an
early axe. These technological marvels eventually were set into
wooden handles.
Time, once set into motion, continued to creep onward and
technology evolved to such an astonishingly high degree that such
magnificent creations as bone needles were invented. These were
used to make nets and baskets and to sew animal hides together for
clothing.
One day a wheel came rolling along. Then came a wagon, a

buggy, a stagecoach, a car. By then, of course, man was eyeing the
final frontier, the stars.
Tools not only have allowed man to survive, but prevail. It has
been argued in high places that it is tools that separate man from
lower animals, those lacking self-awareness and, so far as we
know. a soul.
But I believe the thing that sets man apart is art. Not only the
Mona Lisa or Sistine Chapel, but also those early axes and bone
needles, masterpieces of ingenuity at that stage in God's plan of
creation.
It isn't actually the art itself that sets man apart, it's his ability
to create it. Before he can make anything, even a toothpick, he
must imagine it.
"Imagination is a magic dream," someone said. I believe, fur-
ther, imagination is that likeness of God in which the Bible says
man is created. Imagination is of mind, a reality separate from the
gray matter of the brain.
Indian mystic Paramahansa Yogananda in his awe-inspiring
best-selling book, "Autobiography of a Yogi," suggests all physical
matter is built upon a foundation of mind energy, that all of physi-
cal existence as we experience it is an illusion, part of a dream of
God.
Quantum physics seems to support this idea to some degree in
its assertion that even solids as substantial as steel are made up of
more empty space, between atoms, than actual matter. Hindus
would say this space, which glues all physical matter together and
keeps it from spinning wildly into chaos, holding the universe
together, is part of the mind of God.
The great Christian mystic, artist, philosopher and poet
William Blake, who, moments before his death in August of 1827,
"began to glow with celestial radiance as he burst into song prais-
ing the things he saw in Heaven," believed Jesus was the greatest
artist who ever lived, the universe His canvas, His own human life
His masterpiece.
Some may find it surprising that I toss around freely such
apparently opposing .terms as Christian and Hindu, mystic and
Christ, evolution and creation. lut I think too often we limit Christ
and that such terms are not necessarily mutually exclusive.
After studying Dr. Gerald L. Schroeder's "Genesis & the Big
Bang, The Science of God" and "The Hidden Face of God" and
having read Marvin Olansky and John Perry's "Monkey Business:
True Story of the Scopes Trial," which gives us a glimpse of truth
behind the murky cloud of misinformation that has surrounded the
1925 Scopes "Monkey Trial" since the 1960 Hollywood film
"Inherit the Wind" muddied the waters, I'm not convinced evolu-
tion is the end-all certainty many would have us believe.
But even if it is, isn't it a brilliant tool for the Master Artist to
have employed in sculpting the universe?

HYENA HEIFERS
Dairies are hard places to work. Usually most of the dairies
that I worked at milked 8-11 hours each shift. Then, we cleaned the
equipment up and went right back to milking. In sbme situations
when we'd get into spring of the year where more cows freshen,
we'd actually lose time on a shift. By that, I mean we would milk
into the next shift's time, which meant we were ultimately always
losing a little milk.
When I finally retired from dairy practice and went into small
animal practice, I looked back on it and said, "Working for a dairy,
they wanted me in the barn when the cows were in the barn, and
that was all the time." The truth about the matter was that I had
excellent help.
I spent 20 years of my life as a dairy consultant working for
Larson Dairy Inc. and several other dairies, mainly around the
Okeechobee area. At one time, I had 25,000 dairy cows in a con-
sulting practice. Dairy practice will work you to death all the time.
In contrast to beef cattle practice, which will work you to death in
spring and fall and starve you to death in the summer and winter.
Dr. WW Matthews, with whom I was working in Arcadia,
came to me one day and said, "This dairy thing is taking off and I
don't want to do it. Here, you do it," and that is kind of how I got
into dairy practice.
I started first in Sarasota and Manatee milk sheds and expand-
ed ultimately to Okeechobee, where most of the dairies in South
Florida remain. I had an incredible career working with the Larson
family, who were just exceptional people. I told Mr. Larson and
Woody when I left that in. the 20 years that I was there, I was sure
I learned more from them than they did from me. Mr. Larson's only
compliment to me was that I was a good problem solver, and that
was essentially the gist of my practice. I worked with their people
to diagnose the problems, find solutions, and then teach their peo-
ple how to implement them.
The Larsons had heifers in all three breeds: Jersey, Holstein
and Brown Swiss Cattle. One of the most. interesting things that
happened while I was there was when we had heifers of all three
breeds come out of one calf unit develop hyena disease. Nobody in
this part of Florida had really ever seen it or heard of it. In reality
it was something, unbeknown to us, that we created.
Getting it worked out and diagnosed was another story. I went
to an America Bovine Practitioners meeting in Indianapolis, Ind.


Outta The Woods
By Tony Young
' Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


On the flight back to. Chicago, I sat beside a veterinarian named
Chuck Guard, who was at the University of Florida at that time,
and had practiced for a while in Europe. When I told him about the
disease, he said that it was due to a surplus in Vitamin A. It never
occurred to me that it could be because of anything like that.
The reason that they call it hyena disease was because the front
legs on the cattle were longer than their hind legs and they literal-
ly stood like a hyena. They all looked like freaks of nature. The
humps on their necks were significantly higher than their rump
because their back legs were so much shorter.
About the time I got back from that trip, Mr. Larson came to
me and said, "Dr. Hendry, I've seen about enough of these hyenas.
You find out what's wrong with them, what caused it, how to stop
it, and get this thing stopped." Of course, that lit a fire under my
tail.
Nobody knew what was going on or had seen it before. My
conversation with Chuck gave me some insight, so I sent a 24-foot
gooseneck load of them to the University of Florida. We had noth-
ing to lose; we couldn't milk them and had spent as much money
on them as any other heifer at the operation, so we sent plenty up
there. They tested blood levels and performed other various tests.
Their conclusion was that they had a high blood level of Vitamin
A. Now that we knew what caused it, I had to go back to the farm
'and figure out what happened. There were four dairies at one time
on the east side of Okeechobee that we called' the East End. They
had a common heifer operation and a barn that would hold 946
calves. They stayed in the units about 120 days.
A man named Junior had always run that operation. I got to
looking for a source of Vitamin A. There was a particular manager
that liked a supplement product that was on the market. He used it
in other operations and liked it, so he wanted to use it. We got per-
mission from the nutritionist and the Larsons to use it, so Junior


and his associate were putting it out. It came with a measuring c.up
in the tub but Junior came up with another solution. He and his
assistant, who was a tiny little woman, walked through the barn and
put a handful in each feed bucket on each side. The lady had a lit-
tle bitty hand and Junior had an enormous hand for a man of his
size. I followed them along one day and asked them to each get
their normal handful and put it in a measuring cup. His handful
drastically overfilled the cup and her handful was about a third of
.a cup. That was an obvious difference.
I went back and explained to Junior what was happening. He
had never been real fond of me, and it was the only time in my life
over there that I ever did anything to win Junior's respect. He was
shocked when he realized what this supplement was doing, so we
actually pulled it out of the unit altogether. When we did, the hyena
heifers went away.
It goes to show how one little thing in management can creep
into your operation. We were using a perfectly good product, but
not in an amount that was recommended, andcreated an outcome
that was shocking. I think when it was all said and done, we had
about 60-70 of those hyena heifers. We ultimately sent them to
slaughter and sold them at a value much less than a heifer should
bring.
As a result of that incident, I now know what hyena disease is
and what causes it. There were hundreds of problems similar to this
one that we had to solve in the dairy business, but this was proba-
bly the strangest one.


The stegosaurus was a large, plant-eating dinosaur that
lived about 150 million years ago in what is now the
western United States. It had two rows of bony plates
shaped like huge arrowheads sticking out of its back and
tail.

HOW TO ATTRACT TURKEYS TO YOUR PROPERTY
Whether you oversee a large tract of land or own a smaller par-
cel, there are many wildlife management techniques you can use to
help attract wild turkeys to your.property.
Wild turkeys, like white-tailed deer, are referred to as "edge
species" because of their need for more than one type of habitat.
Most of the time, with large tracts of land, this isn't a problem
because the vast landscape is divers; enough,,Mut,t4in. the case of
small-acreage one-habitat properties,;it's up' to you as the landown-
er to create varied, preferred areas if you expect turkeys to use the
property.
For optimal turkey habitat, half of your property should be in
mature forests and the other half in early-succession "openings,"
such as fields, clearcuts or forests having between 40 and 60 square.
feet per basal area. Basal area is a measurement used to determine
the density of trees per acre. Land that falls into,the 40-60 basal
range has 40 to 60 average-sized (13.5 inches in diameter at the
base) pine trees per acre.
To create even better and more varied habitats for turkeys, you
should offer "differing age classes" of forests and early-succes-
sional areas and make prescribed burning a big part of your
management plan.
Harvest pine trees on a different section of your land on a 10-
year cycle so that after a few decades, the property consists of sev-,
eral sections with trees of varying sizes (ages).
Early-succession habitat can be achieved on "plantation-cut"
areas with a 40-60 basal count, because the trees are spaced out
enough for sunlight'to penetrate the forest floor, where frequent fire
enables new growth of succulent woody ornamentals, native wire-
grass and goldenrod.
It also is important to keep any hardwood hammocks, drains,
ravines, bottoms, wetlands and other unique habitats intact and free
from timbering. Hardwoods are an essential element of wild turkey
management. Thick hardwood lowlands provide travel corridors
that turkeys and deer use extensively.
If there's not any water on the property and you have the finan-
cial means to do so, dig a pond. Turkeys, as well as all other crit-
ters, need water to drink, so if you have that, then you have yet one
more piece of the turkey-management puzzle.
"Buffer" strips of native grasses and woody ornamentals
should be left unmowed. Hens require this thick understory cover
for nesting. When possible, prescribed burning should be applied
that allows for a low, woody component to be scattered throughout
most of the timber stands. Periodically lengthening your burning
rotations will give you this desired, effect and help provide suitable
nesting habitat.
In Florida, most hens begin to lay their eggs in late March or
early April, but the nesting season can extend through June. After
all the eggs are laid, they take about 25 days to hatch. Therefore, if
you can, you may want to limit burning or mowing of preferred
nesting habitat through August. '
Good brood habitat should hold food in. the form of seeds,
insects (an invaluable protein source) and tender new-growth veg-
etation for young poults to feed upon, throughout the summer. It
should consist of one- to hree-foot-tall grass and weeds open
enough to enable the young poults to move about, yet dense
enough to provide cover from predators.
There is great interest nationally in the planting of food plots
for wildlife, including for turkeys. Within extensive closed-off
canopy forested areas, food plots and/or game feeders are essential
to keeping turkeys on your property. Where an open forest struc-
ture is maintained by adequate timber thinning and the use of fire,
such supplemental feeding is not as necessary because there is
enough natural "browse" vegetation on which game can feed.
Food plots are a lot more cost-effective at feeding game than
using feeders on moderate-sized pieces of property. In cases of
smaller tracts, perhaps where food plots can't be utilized because
the landscape is all lowland and you have a closed canopy, game
feeders filled with corn or soybeans are your only option for
attracting turkeys.
Once the decision has been made to create food plots, you
need to know where to put them, how big and what shape to make
them and what to plant. The best ones are long and narrow rectan-
gular shapes that follow the contour of the land. When possible,
create food plots where the length (longest part) runs east to west.
That way, the planted crops will receive the most direct sunlight.
For tips on food plots, go to your local Institute of Food &
Agricultural Sciences extension office, or go online to
