Husband Kills Wife,


70
Plus So Sales Tax






Then Self


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A rural Wauchula man drove
home Friday night, walked into
the bedroom and shot his wife
four times before turning the
gun on himself, the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office said.
Home at the time were his
four young children, ages 3-11,


his mother-in-law, and a woman
who was temporarily living
with the family.
The youngest, 3, "saw the
whole thing," her grandmother,
Lorna Ray, told one of the arriv-
ing deputies, who also said he
heard the child yell, "Daddy
killed Mommy!"
Dead are Danielle Lee Gue-


vara, 34, and Roberto Guevara,
42, of 2329 CR 664-A.
Sheriff's spokesman Maj.
Randy Dey said the call came in
to the 911 emergency line at
8:58 p.m. on Friday. The first
deputy arrived within minutes,
he said.
There, he found Ray scream-
ing, "He shot my baby girl!"


The woman asked the deputy to
help her comfort the four chil-
dren as she gathered them from
inside the house and took them
outside. The children were
placed in a Ford Expedition
parked in the front yard, where
they safely stayed until investi-
gators with the state Depart-
ment of Children & Families


arrived.
Detectives found two bodies
in the northeast bedroom of the
home. The woman was lying on
a bed, Dey said. The man was
lying nearby on the floor.
Dey said the woman had been
shot four times in the head and
chest.
The man suffered a single


gunshot wound to the head, he
said.
A 9mm Smith & Wesson
semi-automatic handgun was
found at the scene.
Dey said the occupants of the
home knew of no argument
between the couple.
"He just drove up, came in

By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Tomorrow night offers the
opportunity to remember old
times at the Wauchula Train
Depot while having a good time
with friends with a clink of a
wine glass.
Two first-time events will
take place tomorrow (Friday) at

TRAIN DEPOT
All aboard!
Those words were last said in
Hardee County in June 1986.
Now thanks to Pattie
Detwiler, executive director at
Peace River Explorations Inc.,
visitors to Hardee County will
get a chance to learn more
about what this county has to
offer at the restored Wauchula

Detwiler came up with the
idea of starting a Tourist
Information Center. The pur-
pose is to bring more people to
Hardee County. By bringing in
more people, you bring in more
revenue, which is good for
everyone.
By going to the center,
tourists will learn of all the
activities and events Hardee has
to offer, not to mention all of
the great restaurants around
town.
The Train Depot will be the
center for area information,
tourist information, local art-
work sales, and displaying fos-
sils found in the area. There will
also be a gift shop and
concierge service for visitors
who may be interested in
canoeing, fossil hunting, or par-


ticipating in other activities
around town.
The depot has a long history
in Hardee County. According to
Cracker Trail Museum Curator
Marlene Hyde, the original
Train Depot was built in 1886.
It was a wooden structure
building that was 30x50 feet.
The trains were both for passen-
gers and freight. The route was
between Punta Gorda and Fort
Myers to Lakeland, with a stop
in Wauchula.
After a while the depot need-
ed some revamping. The new
depot was built in 1914 and
opened up a year later. This
building was made of select
brick with Flemish bond black
headers and was 30x230 feet.
Each day, eight trains came
and went from the station. Four


of those were passenger trains,
half traveled south and half
north. The other four were
freight trains which also made
stops each way.
Tomorrow (Friday) the depot
will hold a ribbon cutting cere-
mony that will provide a pre-
view of what's to come in the
official opening in October.
Jackie Lowe, the last loco-
motive engineer, will be cutting
the ribbon and telling the crowd
the many tales and memories he

this year.
The seats available are one,


three, four, tive and seven, cui-
rently held by Patti Detwiler,

The Hardee County Com-
mission voted to begin negotia-
tions for mitigation with CF
Industries to offset the negative
long-term economic effects of
the post-phosphate-mining sce-
nario associated with its South
Pasture Mine Extension.
The county has scheduled
CF's Development of Regional
Impact (DRI) hearing for June
28, and county attorney Ken
Evers told the commission that
both county staff and CF prefer
to settle the economic mitiga-
tion issue prior to the hearing.
Evers said economic mitiga-
tion negotiations with Mosaic
were done as part of its DRI
hearing, and caused the meet-
ings to be delayed several
times.
The commission appointed
Economic Development Direc-
tor Bill Lambert to represent the
county in negotiations by a 4-1
vote, with Grady Johnson
opposing. Johnson said after the
meeting he would rather have
county staff handle the negotia-

Embezzled At



Least $146,000


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 28-year-old Wauchula
bookkeeper has been accused of
stealing in excess of $146,000
from her employer.
Bridget Ryan McVay, of 314
Riverside Dr., was booked into
the Hardee County Jail on Fri-
day afternoon by Det. Andrew
McGuckin of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office. She
was charged with 69 separate
criminal offenses.
Authorities allege she stole
$146,486 from TNT Recla-
mation and TNT Bookkeeping.
Charges include 65 felony
counts and four misdemeanor
counts. They range from petit
theft to grand theft of over
$5,000 to fraud and swindling.
Bond has been set at
$100,000. As of early Wednes-
day morning, McVay remained
in custody pending trial, in lieu
of posting bond to gain her
release.
Maj. Randy Dey of the
Sheriff's Office said McVay
was an employee of TNT Rec-
lamation, assigned to keep the
books and the payroll accounts.
When TNT Bookkeeping was
formed in 2008, McVay was
given authority to operate the
business.
Dey alleged that beginning in
January of 2009 and continuing
until April of this year, McVay
wrote checks to herself from


company accounts and used
company credit cards to make
personal purchases.
Credit charges on one card
amounted to $94,606, he said.
Further, Dey alleged another
credit card was involved in the
thefts, and said more criminal
counts against McVay are
expected.
Dey alleged the woman, for
instance, used company funds
to pay her boyfriend's child
support obligations and as a
down payment to buy Lexuses
for herself and her boyfriend, a
man she is no longer with.
McVay, however, explained
to authorities that her boss told
her TNT Bookkeeping was
hers, so she felt she was permit-
ted to spend its profits, Dey
relayed. Investigation to date

tions on behalf of the commis-
sion.
Lambert led the negotiations
between Mosaic and the county
in 2008, and reached a $42 mil-
lion settlement payable over 10
years for its 10,856-acre South
Fort Meade Mine extension.
CF's South Pasture Extension
totals 7,513 acres and lays
immediately south of its current
mining operations.
Lambert said he has already
had some initial contact with
CF, and said the meeting went
well but said a dollar figure was
not discussed.
"I have the highest of hopes
that we will reach an agreement
that is fair for CF and the citi-
zens of Hardee County,"
Lambert said.
Richard Glent, director of
community affairs, said, "CF
respects the decision by the
Board of County Commission-
ers to appoint Mr. Bill Lambert
to represent Hardee County in
discussions with CF regarding
the South Pasture Extension.
"We have been partners with
Hardee County for over 30


years and are a vital part of this
community," Ghent continued.
"As always, we intend to do the
right thing and will discuss any
issues in good faith with Hardee
County and Mr. Lambert."
He said both CF Industries
and the County Commission
would have some say as to what
the money is delegated for.
The Mosaic agreement
specifically outlined the money
would be used to encourage
economic development and
diversification, tourism/visitor
development and other catalyst
projects that would have future
positive impacts.
Lambert has said in the past
he would like to see some eco-
nomic mitigation money be
devoted to the school system
and enhancing recreational
opportunities in the county.
Economic development
agreements fall under the
authority of Florida Statutes
Chapter 163, which allows a
county to seek economic miti-
gation if a development will
have negative future economic
impacts.

Regular unleaded gasoline in Wauchula on Tuesday was $3.46
a gallon, a welcome drop from $3.95 about two months ago. More
price reductions will be appreciated.
The recent trading price of a barrel of crude oil has dropped
about $10 to around $96.

A pro basketball player named World Peace might want to
reflect on his name after recently throwing an elbow into another
NBA player and drawing a several-game suspension. It would be
great to have lasting peace throughout the world. Is it too much to
hope for?

Tiger Woods' golf game continues to be a work in progress
after he narrowly missed the cut in last week's Wells Fargo tourna-
ment. He has won 14 major titles and wants to pass Jack Nicklaus,
The Golden Bear, who won 18. Tiger is No. 2 on the list.

Congratulations to I'll Have Another for the come-from-
behind win over Bodemeister in Saturday's Kentucky Derby. Can
the red thoroughbred win the Preakness, the second leg of the
Triple Crown?

The San Diego Chargers played in Super Bowl XXIX in 1995.
Since then eight team members have died before the age of 45,
reported the Tampa Bay Times May 3. They are-
Junior Seau, linebacker, 2012, age 43, apparent suicide. He
texted his ex-wife and three children separately May 2 with the
message "I love you." His girlfriend found him in bed later dead of
a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Oceanside, Calif., home. (two
other former NFL players, Dave Duerson of the Bears and Ray
Easterling of the Falcons, also died by suicide within the past year.)
Lew Bush, linebacker, 2011, age 42, heart attack.
Shawn Lee, defensive tackle, 2011, age 44, heart attack.
Chris Mims, defensive end, 2008, age 38, enlarged heart.
Curtis Whitley, center, 2008, age 39, drug overdose.
Doug Miller, linebacker, 1998, age 28, lightning strike.
Rodney Culver, running back, 1996, age 26, airplane crash.
David Griggs, linebacker, 1995, age 28, car crash.
Those eight teammate deaths underscore the potential brevity
of life and possible ramifications of the violence of football, the
tough training and diets, dangers of drugs, extreme weather, and
dangers of driving and flying.

Gov. Rick Scott wants to end the state's relationship with the
Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence, which-controls tax
money going to help victims of domestic violence, after learning
the group's president, Tiffany Carr, 46, of Tallahassee in 2009 was
paid $316,104 plus $36,158 in benefits. The state has 42 shelters,
reported the Tampa Bay Times.
The board approved her salary after a comparison of some
other non-profit agencies.
Congratulations to Gov. Scott for pointing out yet another
example of inflated salaries and wasted spending. No wonder many
taxpayers are skeptical of government and some non-profit organ-
izations. Carr said she loves her job and is willing to take a pay cut.
Would she work for $31,610 plus $3,615 in benefits?
There is no doubt there could be a lot of savings in local, state
and national governments. The U.S. national debt is $15.7 trillion
and climbing.

The Hillsborough County Animal Services Department kills
euthanizess) 65 percent of the dogs and cats taken in. The County
Commission recently voted 6-0 to have the kill rate reduced,
reports the Times. Cats don't have nine lives at that shelter.
Hardee County has a much. lower kill rate, and there is an
active program here to spay and neuter dogs and cats to prevent
unwanted puppies and kittens.

For years in Tampa a man named Bobby Thompson, who has
several other names, collected millions of dollars for a sham char-
ity named U.S. Navy Veterans Association. He was recently arrest-
ed by federal agents in Oregon where they found $1 million in cash
in a storage locker under one of his alias names. He also started a
charity named Plymouth Rock Society of Christian Pilgrims.

For many years Florida A & M University was famous for its
lively and energetic Marching 100 Band. Then the unthinkable
happened. Drum Major Robert Champion, 26, died Nov. 19, 2011,
apparently from violent hazing by some fellow band menibers in a
bus in Orlando for the football game with Bethune-Cookman
College.
Recently 11 people in the case were charged with hazing
resulting in death and two others charged with misdemeanors.

Dear Editor:
A letter from phosphate
opponent Dennis Mader in last
week's Herald-Advocate recit-
ed assertions made in a petition
filed with the Southwest Florida
Water Management District
(SWFWMD) by a Polk County
landowner who is objecting to
our pending Integrated Water
Use Permit (IWUP).
This letter provides Herald-
Advocate readers with impor-
tant information about the
IWUP that Mr. Mader's letter
didn't mention and with good
reason, as the IWUP will prove
to be a highly innovative permit
that will result in significant
benefits to the regional environ-
ment.
It is the product of years of
planning involving Mosaic and
SWFWMD, the regulatory
agency charged with manage-
ment of the region's water
resources and representing the
public's interest.
Notably, among other bene-
fits, the proposed IWUP:
Reduces Mosaic's permit-
ted water consumption by 30%,
following a similar, major
reduction in the mid-1990s;

cause one of every three deaths
in the U.S. Americans suffer
more than 2 million heart
attacks and strokes each year,
and every day, 2,200 people die
from cardiovascular disease. If
you're over 20, there's a 50 per-
cent chance that you, like Gail,
have at least one of the major
risk factors for heart disease
and stroke-high blood pressure,
high cholesterol or you smoke.
WHAT'S BEING DONE
To help Americans under-
stand these risks and control
them, there's now a national ini-
tiative by the Department of
Health and Human Services
called Million Hearts(tm It
aims to prevent a million heart
attacks and strokes in the U.S.
over the next five years. One in
three Americans has high blood
pressure and one in three has
high cholesterol and many don't
even know it or realize they can
take steps to control both blood
pressure and cholesterol.
WHAT GAIL DID
Gail knew she had to make a
change when she realized her
daughter was sneaking into her
bedroom in the middle of the
night to be sure her mother was
still breathing. She started with
small steps-five minutes of
physical activity every day, eat-
ing more fruits and vegetables,
and monitoring her blood pres-
sure. These simple changes re-
warded her with big results. She

Man Gets 15-Year Split


Term For Molestation


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 39-year-old Wauchula man
has been sentenced to prison
and probation for molesting
young girls.
Carlos Bautista Chavez
appeared in Hardee Circuit
Court recently for what was to
have been a pre-trial hearing on
two felony counts of lewd
molestation.
Instead, Chavez entered into
a plea agreement with the pros-
ecution, and changed his plea
from not guilty. In exchange for
that, the State Attorney's Office
agreed to drop one of the two
counts.
Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle then sentenced Chavez
for his crime.
Ezelle imposed a 15-year
' split sentence, with five years in
Florida State Prison followed
by 10 years of supervised pro-
bation.


Further, the judge assessed
$520 in fines and court costs,
$350 in public defender fees,
$200 for cost of prosecution,
$200 for investigative expens-
es, $151 for a state crimes fund,
and $60 in probation fees.
If Chavez had been convicted
of the two felony counts as
charged during a jury trial, he
would have faced a possible life
sentence.
Chavez had been arrested by
the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office on April 25, 2011.
He was accused of fondling
two different children on sever-
al occasions spanning a period
of about five months. One girl
was 11 and the other 12, Maj.
Randy Dey of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office said.
Each child confided in their
family members, and both
described inappropriate touch-
ing, Dey said. One said the
most recent incident, prompting


her to complain to her family,
occurred when Chavez took her
fishing.
Chavez had denied the
charges, saying he never inten-
tionally touched either child,
but that any contact there may
have been could have been
accidental.


Man Accused Of Rape


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 53-year-old Wauchula man
has been accused of sexually
assaulting a young woman in
her home.
Andy Valdez Garza was
arrested by Det. Jamie Wright
of the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office on April 23.
He was booked into the
Hardee County Jail on charges
of committing a sexual offense,
kidnapping and sexual assault,
all felonies.
The suspect remains behind
bars this week with no bond as
he awaits trial.
According to Maj. Randy
Dey, Sheriff's Office spokes-
man, Valdez went to the alleged


Garza
victim's house on Saturday
night, April 21. The woman was
in the living room of her home


at the time, he said.
Dey said the woman alleged
Garza grabbed her by her hair
and forced her from the living
room and down the home's
hallway. He took her into a
bathroom, the major described.
Once there, Dey charged,
Garza forced himself on the
woman. Dey alleged two of-
fenses occurred against the
woman's will.
Before leaving the woman,
Garza reportedly threatened to
harm her small children if she
called authorities. The woman,
however, reported the alleged
assault the next day.
Garza was located and taken
into custody within hours, Dey
said.

Pelham Placed On EDA


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Stan Pelham was chosen to
be one of the county's ap-
pointees to the Economic
Development Authority.
One of the three economic
development arms in the coun-
ty, the EDA was set up by the
2004 Florida Legislature to
accept applications for the use
of phosphate severance tax
monies which came into the
county.
In 2003, the Legislature had
agreed that more of the phos-
phate tax monies (per acre of
mining usually about $1mil-
lion per dragline) be allotted to
Hamilton and Hardee counties,
the only ones where mining was
ongoing and which needed
some business or activity to
eventually replace mining rev-
enue.
The state ordered who should
be on the EDA board. One
member appointed by the gov-
ernor is someone from the state
Office of Tourism, Trade and
Economic Development (OT-
TED). This was Bridgett
Merrill, who has left the posi-
tion and a replacement not yet
named.
There is member Roger Hood
from the Workforce Board;
member Kenny Miller of CF
Industries representing the
Florida Phosphate Industries;
member David Royal from the
Hardee County Farm Bureau to
represent agricultural interests;
and member Casey Dickson of
the Hardee County Chamber of


Commerce representing busi-
ness.
Four members were appoint-
ed by the Hardee County Com-
mission. two municipal repre-
sentatives and two commission-
ers or commission representa-
tives. Currently, the commis-
sion appointees are Bill Lam-
bert and Sue Birge. who had
replaced Terry Atchley when he
left the commission last fall.
The municipal representa-
tives are Wauchula Police Chief
Bill Beattie and Bowling Green
mayor/commissioner Perry
Knight, who is resigning short-
ly to run for a commission seat
in District 1.
Lambert recently announced
his resignation from the EDA so
he could spend more time and
attention on the Industrial De-
velopment Authority and its
related Economic Development
Council, which are considering
merging.
After a couple of weeks of
developing interest in the posi-
tion, the commission had three
applicants: Pelham, an account-
ant; Henry "Hank" Kuhlman, a
pilot; and a late application
from Roy Brown, an engineer.
During last week's meeting
when commissioners were
completing ballots, members of
the audience asked for more
information about each of the
candidates. Following is a brief
resume of each.

City/Legion May Swap Properties


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A plan to repave the parking
lot at the northwest corner of
U.S. 17 South and Main Street
could require a property swap.
The Wauchula Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA)
had planned to pave the lot
along with the one across the
highway in Earnest Plaza on
which construction will begin
shortly.
When investigating the own-
ership of the city lot at 17 and
Main, the city found that it did
not own it; the American Le-
gion apparently has title to that
property while the city has title
to the corner property on the
southwest corner of U.S. 17 and
Palmetto Street, adjacent to the
American Legion building at
117 W. Palmetto St.
For a couple of months, there
has been discussion of how best
to settle this issue for all con-
cerned. New Life Church, pas-
tored by City Commissioner
Ken Baker, holds its meeting in
Legion Hall and could use the
extra parking if the Legion
owned the adjacent lot.
CRA director Jessica New-
man reported at Monday
evening's workshop that there
were two possible- solutions.
The Legion is willing to sell its
property at U.S. 17 and Main
Street to the city for $80,000,
$10,000 a year for eight years at
O interest.
The alternate solution is for
the two entities to swap the
properties. The city already
owns the alleyway the length of
that block, except the portion
alongside the Presbyterian
Church and an easement for the
telephone company ingress/-
egress.
In other action at Monday's
workshop, the commission:
-heard a presentation by
Albritton Insurance Services


about what they could provide
to the city as insurance agent of
record if the city wanted to
change. It presently has Public
Risk Management insurance
pool with Gallagher & Bassett
as agent of record. Having the
service locally could be better
for city employees in submit-
ting claims and following
through on them.
-Considered a raise for City
Clerk Holly Smith to bring her
salary into line with those in
adjacent communities. In Ar-
cadia, the clerk is paid $45,000,
in Avon Park, $39,895, in Fort
Meade $38,707.20 and in
Bowling Green, $50,000. Smith
is currently paid $16.08 per
hour or $34,964.80 a year.
City Manager Terry Atchley
feels Smith's accomplishments
justify a raise, which, however
is set by the commission. Later,
he wants to update all salary
scales as other employees have
reached the maximum of their
scale or salary range. Rather
than $39,464.80, commission-
ers suggested it could be an
even $50,000 and asked
Atchley to put it on the consent
agenda for next Monday's regu-
lar monthly commission meet-
ing at 6 p.m.
-Discussed a vacancy on the
Code Enforcement Board and
the only applicant, Garry
Phillips of Shelton Avenue.
That will also be put on the con-
sent agenda for next week's
meeting.
-Discussed the sale of sur-
plus property at 501 S. Seventh
Avenue, which the city obtained
through foreclosure on code
enforcement liens. That is
another item for next week's
agenda.
-Reviewed the amended
Garden Club lease. There are
separate water meters for the
adjacent park and the old
Ausley Library building which


has been converted into the
Garden Club building. The
Club will pay for water at the
building only and will also need
to have annual event insurance
for its Arts In the Park event.
-Deferred any in-depth dis-
cussion on the Hardee Rec-
reation Council interlocal
agreement which has expired
after 25 years. The School
Board takes the lead on it and
will review it at the Board's
next meeting.
-Discussed the proposed
IDA funding for the property at
226 W. Main Street, which
Dave Brown had hoped to reno-
vate for his shop and also for an
UPS or FED-EX. The plan was
that Brown would purchase the
property and receive IDA/CRA
funds to remodel it. However,
the bank required a Phase I and
Phase II environmental study.
Soil samples and other tests
located the source of contami-
nation is on city property in the
alleyway behind the building,
where there are apparently
buried fuel tanks. Brown, or
property owner Jim See' can
apply for a Brownfield study
and grant to mitigate the con-
tamination. Again, the commis-
sion consensus was to place that
on Monday's agenda.
-Heard a lengthy objection
from resident Roy Brown on his
displeasure with an April 16
court-ordered foreclosure
amounting to $14,215 on a code
enforcement lien plus costs,
fees, etc. The property in ques-
tion was due for foreclosure
sale on Wednesday. After
lengthy discussion on how the
original code violation was han-
dled and the lien came up,,City
Attorney Cliff Ables said he
would cancel the sale as Brown
said he would pay off the judg-
ment on Tuesday.

12A The Herald-Advocate, May 10, 2012


Week Ending: May 6, 2012
Weather Summary: It was a generally dry week and produc-
ers continued to plant crops and harvest hay and vegetables with
few interruptions. Locally, heavy showers caused producers to
pause, but the rainfall was welcomed to alleviate the dry condi-
tions. It was a hot week and temperatures climbed as the week pro-
gressed with highs reaching the low 90s. The highest temperatures
were recorded at Bronson (96 degrees) and MacClenny (95
degrees). The temperatures at major cities ranged from one to eight
degrees above normal except at Miami where temperatures aver-
aged one degree below normal. Low temperatures were mostly in
the low to mid 60s. Many of the Florida Automated Weather
Network (FAWN) stations recorded little or no rain during the
week. Only four of the 36 stations recorded more than a half inch:
Jay (1.38 in.), Avalon (0.74 in.), Homestead (0.64 in.), and Fort
,Lauderdale (0.63 in.). Rainfall accumulation recorded at major
cities since March 1, 2012 was two to four inches below normal
except at Miami and West Palm Beach. The latest US. Drought
Monitor 'data showed much of the Sunshine State with drought
except for southern counties. The most exceptional drought is a
band of land that spreads from Jacksonville southwest to the Gulf.
The water level at Lake Okeechobee as of May 6, 2012 was 11.61
feet compared to the average of 13.46 feet during the years 1965-
2007. In St. Lucie County, surface irrigation sources were ade-
quate, but there was concern about the future needs of the citrus
and vegetable crops. The fire danger remained high in many areas
of the Sunshine State. There were 90 active wildfires with 14 wild-
fires with over 100 acres burning as of May 4, 2012.


Field Crops: Some producers planted field crops despite dry
conditions. At week's end, 40 percent of the peanut crop had been
planted compared to 21 percent the previous week. In Jackson and
Okaloosa counties, peanut'and cotton planting was steadily moving
forward. In Gadsden, Levy, and Washington counties fieldwork
stopped as producers waited for more rain. In Washington County,
the oat harvest was underway in some parts of the county, but many
fields needed another week or two to ripen. It appeared that some
wheat fields did not get enough chill hours during the winter for
wheat to properly develop grain heads. Irrigated crops were doing
well, but there was concern about the seed planted in soils with
marginal moisture.
Fruits & Vegetables: USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service
(AMS) reported market movement of snap beans, sweet corn,
cucumbers, eggplant, bell peppers and other peppers, okra, squash,
and tomatoes. Potatoes were being harvested in Flagler County. In
Gilchrist County the watermelon harvest continued. In' Charlotte
County the watermelon harvest continued and harvest of other veg-
etables was seasonally ending. In Miami-Dade County, the har-
vesting of all winter vegetables was coming to an end.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture conditions
ranged from very poor to excellent with most poor to fair. Hay and
supplements were fed to compensate for the poor pasture condi-
tion. The condition of the cattle ranged from poor to excellent with
most in fair condition. In the Panhandle, pastures were in poor to
good condition. Pastures in the area continued to suffer from
drought and this negatively impacted the cattle-condition. Spring
ryegrass hay, usually fed in the winter months, was being fed now.
In the northern areas, most pastures were in poor to good condition,
while the cattle were in fair to good condition. In the central areas,


some wells and water ponds were drying up resulting in water hav-
ing to be transported to livestock. Grass was just not producing in
most other pastures. In the southwestern areas, the pasture condi-
tion ranged from very poor to good with most poor to fair. In
Collier County, rains during the previous week helped maintain
pasture conditions. Pastures in Okeechobee County were greening
up. The conditions of the cattle varied from very poor to excellent
with most in fair condition.
Citrus: Temperatures increased slightly with highs reaching
the lower 90s across the citrus region. Rainfall was very light
across the region again this week. Twelve stations recorded precip-
itation with Avalon receiving the most at 0.74 of an inch. Seven of
the 12 recorded less than a tenth of an inch. Drought conditions
along the entire citrus region ranged from moderate on the eastern
coast to extreme on much of the west coast. The drought conditions
in the citrus area remain unchanged. Drought conditions were per
the U.S. Drought Monitor; last updated May 01, 2012. The
Valencia harvest declined from the previous week. Abundant fruit,
of various sizes were visible as the new crop progresses.
Harvesting and young tree care were the primary grove activities at
this time. Currently, 18 packinghouses and 14 processors remained
open.

Solomon's Castle Reigns For 40 Years


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
A typical spring day in Ona will lure
hundreds of people from around Florida
and all over the Unites States into
Hardee County looking for one of the
,most unique and bizarre castles in the
world.
Howard Solomon, the "king" of
Solomon's Castle, designed and built
just about everything inside and out of
the castle almost completely by himself.
Solomon, now 77, came to Hardee
County in 1971 from the Bahamas with
plans to retire and occupy his time by
writing and sculpting.
The native of Rochester, NY, was
looking for a place to settle down and
raise his family after working in con-
struction and owning and operating
three art galleries two in the
Bahamas and one in Miami which he
sold before moving here.
While living in the Bahamas, he met
Hardee County locals Bill Crews and
John Burton through a friend while they
were on a fishing trip. Solomon said the
friend told him about Hardee County
and recommended, he consider moving
there when he left the island,
In 1971, Solomon drove to Wauchula
and walked into Wauchula State Bank
looking for Crews.
He was amazed at the reception he
got.
He said Crews stopped what he was
doing and spent the rest of the day
showing him all around the county.
Solomon said he received similarly
warm welcomes from almost everyone
else in the county when he moved here.
In March of 1972, Lawrence Roberts
showed him 90 acres in Ona with
frontage on Horse Creek. He immedi-
ately fell in love with the property, and
realized it was the place for him
because it was the right size and price.
He purchased the property for $350 per
acre. Roberts told him the land would
have been just $110 an acre two years
earlier, in 1970.
Solomon began building his
castle/house in 1972. He said it took
him a total of 14 years of on-and-off
work to complete the castle as it stands
today.
The castle's frame is made of lumber
supplied mostly by Florida Fence Post
in Ona, and it is covered with used alu-
minum press plates he gathered from
The Herald-Advocate in Wauchula over
the years.
Solomon eventually joined the Elk's
Lodge in Wauchula, and people began
asking about his castle and what he was
building out in the middle of nowhere.
All the intrigue kept coming, so he
decided to give a tour of his castle on
the last Sunday of the month so people
could see for themselves and stop the

Solomon's Castle in Ona attracts thousands of people into Hardee County every year.


pestering questions.
He was shocked by how many
showed up.
It was so successful he decided to do
it again the following month. It, too,
was well attended, so it turned into a
monthly tradition that carried on for 12
years.
Solomon said eventually people start-
ed showing up every day and asking for
a tour of the castle. It got so bad he
couldn't get any work done because he
was constantly giving tours, he said.
He thought if he started charging peo-
ple for tours, they would stop coming.
"It didn't work," he said.
Today people show up by the car-
loads, motorcycle groups and tour buses
to walk the beautiful grounds and ven-
ture through the castle, gazing at the
thousands of pieces of art Solomon has,
made through the years.
What makes his art so unique is he
uses almost entirely used and recycled
items for his creations.
Giant animals are made from cut up
old oil drums and welding rods.
Old car parts, chains, animal bones,
pieces of glass, aluminum food contain-
ers and many other pieces of so-called
junk gives Solomon inspiration to make
his figurines.
His art is for sale, but he has a hard
time parting with anything.
"I try to keep the prices just out of
people's reach," he explained, so he can
avoid having to sell his treasured pos-
sessions.
Building and creativity come natural
to Solomon, and he seemed to pick
them up from birth. The first thing he


ever built was a toy truck, which he
made by himself at age 4 and still has
on display in the castle today. As a
teenager and with no formal training, he
added a room onto his mother's house.
After he finished his castle here, he
needed another project.
In the 1990s he decided to build the
"Boat in the Moat," after his first open-
heart surgery. He said it took him about
four years of thought to decide exactly
how he wanted it built and another four
years to complete the construction,
again almost completely by himself.
While giving tours he points out the
boat is 65-feet long and roughly two-
thirds the size of the Santa Maria. It
required 105 pilings being sunk into the
water and swamp beneath the boat to
support it. He did admit Bob Kelly
helped him sink the pilings, which took
a total of four months.
The boat is now used as a restaurant
operated by Howard's daughter, Alane,
andi her husband, Dean.
He said it is a huge blessing to work
with his family and see them on such a
regular basis.
The restaurant is open daily for lunch
and serves dinner on Friday and
Saturday nights. It can also be rented
for private events.
Most of the wood used for the boat is
rough-cut lumber from Florida Fence
Post. Keeping in line with the re-used
theme for his designs, Solomon joked
that the wood used for the boat is also
recycled they used to be trees, the
witty King tells his tour group.
In 2007 Solomon went to Texas to
see the Alamo and liked the building,
but said he couldn't find any place to
park near the site. So, he decided to
~HB^


build an Alamo on his property, one that'
he says has available parking so you
can actually get out and see it.
The Alamo, however, sits away from
the castle and is not open to the public
tours even though it doesn't stop people
from wondering up and trying to look
inside.
He uses it as storage building to house
a portion of his many creations.
Solomon said he doesn't know if he
has the energy to undertake another
huge building project and now sticks to
smaller things and gives a lot of tours
showcasing the things he has already
done.
Later this year the family will open a
bed and breakfast so their guests can
stay at the castle as long as they want.
As he walks around the grounds
patrons notice King Solomon amongst
them and treat him like a rock star.
He is constantly interrupted with
praise, such as "I don't know how" you
find the energy to do all this," and "This
is truly an amazing4lace."'.
Many even ask him to pause for a pic-
ture.
"This whole thing wasn't planned,"
Solomon said. "If I went somewhere
else when I left the Bahamas, this may
never have happened."
One woman visiting from Central
Florida said she comes to Solomon's
Castle at least once a year whenever she
has friends visiting, so they, too, can see
and appreciate his creative work.
She said it never gets old, and there is
always something new to see. She said
Solomon is an amazing individual who
has some very unique talents.
Anyone who has ever visited his place
would have to agree.

This week iIs 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 Wednesday
Musicale will present its annual
May Pageant at the City Hall
auditorium tonight in what is
expected to be the most spec-
tacular pageant ever given in
this city. The queen, Miss Sara
Beal, and her court will form a
beautiful setting and brilliant
array of color representing
every color of the rainbow in a
most artistic arrangement of
flowers together with the gor-
geous gowns worn by the queen
and her attendants.

In a ceremony attended by
hundreds of thousands of peo-
ple throughout the world,
George VI was crowned King
of England Wednesday morn-
ing, the ceremonies beginning
at 10 o'clock, England time (3
a.m. Eastern Standard Time).
Of the great throng who wit-
nessed the ceremony, there was
an estimated attendance of
50,000 Americans.
There are reported to be over
300,000 Indians in the U.S. Can
it be that the "vanished tribe" is
coming back again'?

Tragedy rode the airways
Thursday when the giant Hin-
denburg went down in flames:
35 more added to the list of air


death this year.


50 YEARS AGO
The erection of two new mer-
cury vapor lights in Zolfo
Springs has been approved by
the Town Council. The council
voted at its meeting Monday
night to purchase the lights and
put them up at the intersections
of the School House Road and
roads 64 and 66.

An estimated 4,000 to 5,000
persons visited the Wauchula
State Bank's open house
Saturday to view the new quar-
ters despite a severe rain and
hailstorm in midday.

Wilbur C. King, of Zolfo
Springs, former County Com-
mission chairman and state sen-
ator from Hardee County, easily
won renomination Tuesday as
railroad and public utilities
commissioner, Group One.

Wauchula is being flooded
now by the most bad checks in
its history, Sheriff Odell Carlton
warned this week. The sheriff
said that one woman is known
to have passed at least 20 bad
checks in the past 30 days at
stores in Wauchula. Some
stores have been hit twice.

25 YEARS AGO
After a lengthy and some-
times bitter discussion, the
Hardee County School Board
voted 3-2 Tuesday to award a
construction contract for reno-
vation and expansion at
Bowling Green Elementary


School.

At a meeting in Tallahassee
on May 8, the Florida Game &
Fresh Water Fish Commission
voted to prohibit hunting for
deer and wild hogs in the
Fakahatchee Strand in Collier
County. The rule is designed to
improve chances of survival for
the Florida panther by provid-
ing more prey animals for the
endangered cats that inhabit the
area.

The Game & Fresh Water
Fish Commission has removed
from the wild the first female
Florida panther for use in a cap-
tive breeding program. She will
be bred to the male panther at
White Oak Plantation near
Jacksonville, and if breeding is
successful her kittens would be
candidates for release into areas
of Florida where panthers no
longer exist.

Florida Special Olympics has
announced that 21 athletes from
Hardee County will attend the
Florida Special Olympics State
Summer Games to be held May
29-30 at the University of South
Florida in Tampa. More than
2,400 athletes from 62 coun-
tries will participate in events
including aquatics, athletics,
equestrian, soccer and tennis.

10 YEARS AGO
Hardee County roads are slat-
ed for even more state and fed-
eral dollars in coming weeks,
months and years. Director of
public works and road depart-
ment supervisor J.R. Prestridge
asked the County Commission
recently for approval of a pair
of plans for county roads.


Every student at Hardee
Senior High School was trans-
ported to the football stadium to
view a very serious presenta-
tion: a warning about drinking
and driving. A mock DUI scene
had been prepared. Micah
Hendrickson, security officer at
Hardee Junior High, began the
presentation by explaining that
respect would be discussed,
"Respect for others and respect
for yourself."

Movies showing at Lake-
shore Cinema 8 starting Friday
are Spiderman (PG-13), Murder
8y Num8ers (R), Changing
Lanes (R), Life Or Something
Like It (PG-13), Jason'X (R),
The Rookie (G), and Clock-
stoppers (PG).

David Beckley, son of Jim
and Janet Beckley and grandson
of Dr. Bob and Evelyn Black-
mon, all of Ona, received a
bachelor of science degree in
applied economics April 26
from Florida State University in
Tallahassee.

Television has proved that
people will look at anything
rather than each other.

The


Seniors Get Chance


At Car For Each 'A'


There are only a few days
remaining for graduating sen-
iors at Hardee Senior High
School to bring in their report
cards and enter to win a new car
during the Alan Jay Automotive
Network's "Wheels For A's"
program.
Each "A" grade that a gradu-
ating senior received during the
first three quarters of this school
year earns one entry to win a
late-model vehicle from Alan
Jay, given away during the
school's commencement cere-
mony.
"This is one of my favorite
programs that we do in the com-
munity, and it is by far the most
exciting. It's truly a thrill to see
the joy on the faces of the win-
ners and their families," stated
Alan Jay Wildstein, president of
the Alan Jay Automotive Net-
work.
Wildstein added, "All of the
students are so deserving, and I
really enjoy being able to cele-
brate their accomplishments


with them at their graduation
ceremonies."
Hardee High graduates are
asked to bring their report cards
in to Alan Jay Chevrolet
Chrysler Dodge Ram Jeep, at
1405 U.S. Highway 17 S. in
Wauchula. Grads need only
bring in their school identifica-
tion cards and most recent
report cards in order to enter to
win.
Entries are accepted every
day during regular business
hours, but students are encour-
aged to get their entries in as
soon as possible. The deadline
for entries is at 4 p.m. this
Saturday.
Through 2011, the Alan Jay
Automotive Network has
awarded a total of 46 vehicles
to lucky area seniors, and 2012
will mark the 16th year of the
"Wheels For A's" program.
The Alan Jay Automotive
Network owns or manages 11
dealerships throughout South
Central Florida.

'The Man Dressed In Red With A

Red Cross' Came To Wauchula


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Obadia Franklin, 63, of
Spring Hill near Brooksville
has been a church pastor, evam
gelist and for the past 10 years
has traveled through the conti-
nental United States dressed in
red carrying a red cross. He has
been to 48 states and several
foreign countries including the
Middle East.
He and his wife Carla have
two sons, Aaron, a State Farm
Insurance agent in Chatta-
nooga, Tenn., and Jason, a mam
ager with American Woodmark
Company south of Atlanta, Ga.
Franklin's father John was a
Church of God pastor in
Matheny, W, Va. Obadia be-
c, .e a Christian at age 10 after
f. ing his father's sermon. His
Usher Gertie, a Sunday School
:her, greatly influenced him.
1 was born in Welsh, W. Va., a
c 1 mining town.
de became an evangelist at
age 14 and led a three-week
revival under a brush arbor in
Cassia near Deland.
He had a long ministry as a
evangelist, once beginning a
10-day revival in Henderson,
Ky., that lasted 70 days.
He was president of the
Baptist Student Union at'Polk
Community College.
Rev. Franklin was a church
pastor in Florida for about 10
years, serving Church of God
churches in Tavenier, Miami,
Lakeland and Clearwater.
One day about 10 years ago
while sitting in his comfortable
church office and making a
good living, he felt led by God
to witness along busy intersec-
tions across the country.
He is often called The Man in
Red With The Red Cross." He
dresses in red from his cap
down to his shoes and has a big
wooden cross painted red, to
signify the cross of Calvary and
Jesus Christ shedding His blood
as an atonement for the sins of
mankind, those who believe
and accept him as Lord an
Savior.
He pulls his cap over his face
to draw attention away from
himself and to his message.
"It's not about me."
"Some people call me the
pastor of the Church of the
Sidewalk and the Church of the
Highway."
Franklin said 80 percent of
Americans do not attend church
regularly. He said Jesus wants
to save people "from the upper-
most to the guttermost."
Franklin said the Bible pre-
dicts a great falling away in the
last days. "We are all sinners in
need of a savior. The blood and
the cross are basic to salvation.
All have sinned and come short
of the glory of God. Paul was
preaching the cross is the power
of God unto salvation, as Jesus'
sacrifice for our sins."
People often come up to him
along the intersections and
begin a conversation. He is


Obadia Franklin has a unique Christian mission.


often invited to preach, mostly
in Baptist churches, non-
denominational churches, and
Church of God or Assembly of
God churches.
He admires the career of
evangelist Billy Graham being
"such a voice for salvation.
People are going to hell every
day. Salvation is about the
blood of Jesus and what he did
on the cross."
Franklin said, "God loves us
and has a major plan for our
life."
He is concerned about over
50 million abortions that have
been performed in America
since the 1972 Supreme Court
case of Roe vs. Wade. "How
many Billy Grahams and Tim
Tebows would have been
born?"
Franklin said Billy Graham in
a sermon in the 1960s said
America for its sins would need
to apologize to the Biblical
cities of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The man in red noted, "Sin
will take you farther than you
want to go, keep you longer
than you want to stay, and cost
you more than you want to
pay."
Franklin came to Wauchula in
late 2004 as he ministered along
the path of Hurricane Charley.
He came in 2011 and during
Easter 2012 week at the request
of Bishop Wendell Smith, pas-
tor of Faith Temple Church of
God in Wauchula.
He said a TV reporter has
done reports on his cross min-
istry in three states over the
years Idaho, West Virginia
and Florida.
Sometimes Franklin quotes a
J + 0 = E equation, "meaning
Jesus plus zero equals every-
thing. By the same token every-
thing minus Jesus equals noth-
ing."
At a sermon April 7 at Faith


Temple, Rev. Franklin urged the
congregation to "bring praise to
the house of God. Give God
tithes, offerings and the sacri-
fice of praise continually. Praise
the Lord at all times. God takes
the bad, the good and all the
ugly and works it all together
for good. Bless the Lord with
all your mind, heart and
strength. The fruit of our lips is
giving thanks to His name."
He said Jesus at age 33 1/2
was crucified on Mount
Calvary. "He is the Lamb of
God who takes away the sins of
the world."
People should "give God the
praise He deserves. The Lord is
greatly to be praised. His great-
ness defies human description.
Praise God when you are weak
or strong, when right or wrong.
praise God continually."
Franklin said without women
of God there would be no men
of God. "Mary told the others of
Jesus' resurrection."
In his April 17, 2011, visit to
Wauchula Franklin said in his
ministry he has been threatened
by people with a knife, pistol
and rock but said God has kept
him safe.
He was the first child of
seven born to his parents. God
told his father the firstborn will
be a boy and to name in Obadia.
"About 10 years ago God told
me to build a cross, cover it in
blood red, dress in red and be a
servant of the Lord."
In Israel Franklin said he
walked his cross from Golgatha
at Calvary to Bethlehem, the
same route taken by Jesus.
"I have been brainwashed,
but I chose who washed my
brain."
Franklin recalled a Pahokee
football coach who had sent
players to the NFL saying he
was "most proud of my boys
who are carrying the Bible."


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
God says, "I am God. I have
called you to live right and
well. I have taken responsi-
bility for you, kept you safe.
... I am God. That's My
name. I don't franchise My
glory. I don't endorse no-
god idols." ... Sing to God a
brand-new song, sing His
praises all over the world.
Isaiah 4:6,8,10 (ME)

FRIDAY
Jesus said, "And when you
stand praying, if you have a
grievance against anyone,
forgive him, so that your
Father in heaven may forgive
you the wrongs you have
done."
Mark 11:24 (NEB)

SATURDAY
The Lord says, "I will put My
law in their minds, and write
it on their hearts. I will be
their God, and they will be
My people. ... For I will for-
give their wickedness and
will remember their sins no
more."
Jeremiah 31:33b,34b (NMV)

SUNDAY
It is through Him (Jesus
Christ), at the cost of His'
own blood, that we are
redeemed, freely forgiven
through that full and gener-
ous grace which has over-
flowed into our lives and
opened our eyes to the truth.
Epheslans 4:7 (PME)

MONDAY
Hannah prayed, "The Lord
has filled my heart with joy. I
feel very strong in the Lord.
... There is no one holy like
the Lord. There is no rock
like our God. Don't continue
bragging. Don't speak
proud words. The Lord is
God who knows everything,
.ar,d He judges what people
do."
/ Samuel 2: la,2b-3 (NCV)

TUESDAY
Set your minds on things
that are above (eternal) and
not on things that are on the
earth. ... But now, put them
all away: anger, wrath, mal-
ice, slander and foul talk
from your mouth. Don't lie to
one another.
Colossians 3:2,8-9a (RSV)

WEDNESDAY
Better be poor and honest
than rich and dishonest.... A
man may ruin his chances
by his own foolishness and
then blame it on the Lordl

Salute To My Sweet Mother

There's one person that we love with all
our hearts, and that's our sweet mother.
The first face I see in the morning is my Sweet Mother.
With a smile and a gentle touch, she says, "Get up, honey.
It's time to face the day"!
As I'm growing up and I start drifting away from
my sweet mother's love.
As I'm growing up I find a new love, my sweetheart.
As the years go by, I become a mother. I remember
my mother's love.
My child is everything to me. My heart is full of love.
Every little hurt my child feels, I feel it more,
and I remember my sweet mother's love.
I start thinking that there's no bigger love in the world
than a mother's love for her child.
So I start thinking, "Is this how our lord God loves the
world, like a mother's love?"


-Maria Luz (Escobar) De La Rosa

Church League


Back To Tie


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It's two top teams again for
the 2012 Men's Church Softball
League.
At the end of last week, San
Alfonso Chapel and First
Christian Church had identical
10-1 records after San Alfonso
picked up a pair of victories and
First Christian split its games,
suffering its first defeat. These
two teams in the final Field 4
game of the regular season on
May 15.
Behind the dual leaders, the
other six teams quietly battle it
out with Holy Child Catholic,
Florida's First Assembly of
God, Bowling Green .Baptist,
New Hope Baptist, St. Michael
Catholic and Northside Baptist
each taking a turn at winning
and at losing.
The closest games of the
week were the Tuesday early
game on Field 3 and the
Thursday early game on Field
4. Both involved league leader
First Christian.
In last Tuesday's opener on
Field 3, First Christian barely
beat Holy Child 20-19.
First Christian outscored
Holy Child 5-4 in the first
inning and added eight runs in
the second before losing
momentum and barely hanging
on.
Jose Camilo topped First
Christian with five trips around
the bases, every time he came
up to bat. Mikey Driskell and
Tater each added triple tallies.
Julian Garcia and Jose
Gomez combined for twin
scores for Holy Child, with also
got twin tallies from Rodney


Wimberly, Josh Sneider, Ram
Briones and Gerardo Villegas
and three runs from Will Tyson.
In Thursday's early game on
Field 4, Bowling Green defeat-
ed First Christian 14-11.
A Joe Adams triple was the
heaviest hit for Bowling Green .
Paul Roberts put up three-scores
and Tyler, Justin Bromley and
Austin Helms each added twin
scores.
Nathan Anderson, Alan
Tubbs, Randy B. Eddie Her-
nandez and Eric Gicker each
put a pair of scores on the board
for First Christian.
Holy Child picked up its first
win on Field 4 on Tuesday
night, slipping past Bowling
Green.
Chad Hayes, Raul Ramirez,
Eddie Strange, Dave, Fred
Hodges and Jeremy each cir-
cled the bases three times for
Holy Child, with Robby and
Dale Roberts each putting five
runs in the book.
For Bowling Green, eight
batters put two or three runs
apiece on the board.
San Alfonso won 25-10 over
Northside-in the early game on
Field 3 last Thursday.
Dave and Hodges each put
four scores on the board for San
Alfonso, while Hayes, Brad
Gilliard and Cody had two each
and Ramirez, and Robby each
added three runs.
For Northside, Roy and
Justin Forrister each put a pair
of runs on the board. An eight-
run, third- inning spree kept
Northside in the game, hoping
for another win after taking
First Assembly 29-14 on
Tuesday night.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



Big Al loved his vintage car
more than anything in the
world. When he died, a chauf-
feur led the funeral proces-
sion to the cemetery in his
vehicle.
Even though the burial
service was brief, someone
had time to steal his car while
the mourners bowed their
heads in prayer. Realizing
what had happened, a friend
said, "I guess you can't be
too careful even at your own
funeral. You never know what
might happen after you die."
But we can know without a
doubt what will happen after
we die. We know that God
loves us and that we are very
dear to Him. We also know
that a car can take us many
places, but not to heaven.
Only our faith in the Lord can
do that. When He calls us
home to heaven, if our faith is
in Him, He will bring us into
His presence arid we will
enjoy eternity with Him for-
ever.

f A mom plays many roles with
little rehearsal. With her babies
/ she Is life itself, the softness of
S/// her loving arms only a heartbeat
away. With young children she's
a queen, providing shelter, ready to erase the pain of hurt feelings
or a skinned knee. During the teen years, mom sometimes feels like
the enemy; a few years later she's the world's greatest counselor
again. Finally, when we launch a life of our own, mom Is there to be
our guide as we begin jobs and raise our own families. Life comes full
circle, Give thanks to God today for your mom!

No Toys, But Reading


Er Embroidery Instead


By CARYSSA JOHNSON
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Lois Redding Colavito was born in
C6llier County, in Immokalee, on Dec.
31, 1927, and is 84 years of age.
Her first eight years of life she spent
them in Collier County, then off to Polk
County for a
few more N
years then_.. -
back to little 1l1" 1
ol' Hardee I ,
County.
Nana spent her time with her three
brothers, Robert, Johnny and Cecil
Redding, and her three sisters, Donia,
Eloise and Mary Redding.
Her parents, my great-great-grand-
parents, were both very hard workers.
Her dad worked on the Atlantic Coast
Line Railroad and her mother worked in
vegetables on the farm.
When in Immokalee, she used to
play with the Indians, when in Polk
County she looked for the ghost light
with her friends, and in Hardee County
she used to run after the robins in the
strawberry patch.
She said she enjoyed school as a
child very much. She said it was very
different from now. She finished kinder-
garten and when she' was in first grade
she was so smart she went right into
second grade in the same year, and
when she was in seventh grade she went
from there straight to eighth grade in
the same year. Her favorite teacher in
junior high was Mrs. Ruth Southerland
principal of the junior high.
When she was smaller she didn't
have toys like the other kids did. While
growing up she did embroidery and lots
of reading.
In her early teenage years she kind of
figured she needed a little bit of money
to help the family. She babysat three
kids during the summer when she lived
in Polk County. As she got older, she
worked in the infirmary at the old hos-
pital which was located at the corner of
Main Street and Florida Avenue in
Wauchula.
Lois Redding became the bride of
Joseph Raymond Colavito, an Italian-
American sergeant in the U.S. Air
Force. She ended up happily married at
the age of 19. My Nana met her won-
derful husband at a restaurant uptown, a

little place called Bailey's Caft.
Together, they had three children:
Yolanda, Joey II and Kitty. She has five
grandchildren: Cherie, Bonnie, Joey III,
Dwayne, Dustin and Wyatt. She has
four great-grandchildren: Caryssa,
Amber, Morgan and Cayden.
She describes herself as a Christian
woman that hates immorality, liars and
thieves.
Her goals in life were to be a nurse,
in fact she became one. Her occupation
was licensed practical nurse. The great-
est thing she was happy she achieved
was becoming an LPN, working in doc-
tor offices and just basically helping
others. Growing up as a child she took
care of a lot of wounds, so she has
already been a nurse since childhood. It
has followed her through her whole life.
My nana practiced nursing at the
Palmetto Medical Clinic. She was a
nurse for 18-/2 years, most of these
years at Hardee Memorial working with
Dr. Perez. She said she went all the way
through nursing school. Nana stated,
and I quote, "I would love to go back to
nursing but my feet just won't let me."
She stated other than retiring from
nursing, she hasn't found anything to be
hard for her. The upcoming election and
knowing who the new president will be
is very important.
As a child, my nana did think she
would get married and have children of
her own. In fact, she said, "Of course,
it's natural, it's every girl's dream."


NICE ACHIEVEMENT!

In Business

RED, WHITE & BLUE Not only are these the colors of
the flag, but they also represent a new barbershop in town.
"Bud's Barber Shop is now open for business in downtown
Wauchula.
Owner Debbi Farabee Perry has been a part of the Hardee
County community since 1975, when .she moved here from Texas.
She has been cutting hair professionally since 1977.
Previously she had been cutting hair at the City Barber Shop on
East Main Street, for 34 years. The shop was owned by her father.
Having worked at the City Barber Shop for this long, she
decided to make a big change and open up her own salon. Bud's
opened in early April.
Currently Bud's is only cutting men's hair, although Perry
plans to change that. She has one other employee working for her,
longtime'Hardee County resident Jonathan Pleger. Perry said that
once fall comes she will hire someone who is skilled to cut
women's hair.
Bud's offers everything from fades to flat tops for men.
Bud's name originated from Perry's grandfather. Not only was
he a barber here in Hardee County, he was also a member of the
House of Representatives for this district in 1939. He was fondly

REPAIR, RECOVER, REMOVE All of these things
have something in common when referring to this next business.
A new computer repair business has recently opened in
Wauchula.
S.A.W. Computers, the initials of owner St.i ;-,n Allen Wingo,
began serving customers about four months ago.
Wingo is a Hardee County native who has been working with
computers for over 10 years.
Prior to opening S.A.W., he worked for the county landfill on
their equipment for almost 10 years. From there he was sent to
learn more about computers because, as he said, "back then they
were becoming more popular." ,
S.A.W. is a family owned and operated business that special-
izes in, home and office networking, repairing computers, data
recovery, and virus removal. Wingo also buys and sells computers.
Wingo works from his office or can make "house calls" if
needed. Wingo is the only person working at S.A.W., as he says he
believes in small businesses.

Greetings from Fort Green!
We are always praying for
each-other, butcaerybody-needs
to pray for rain! It is very dry.
There is nothing like a vine-
ripened tomato and Gene Al-
britton visited his brother,
Cline, a few days ago and
brought him some fresh-picked
tomatoes. Sherman was lucky,
as Gene also visited him and
gave us some good tomatoes!
Lee Chancey, my neighbor,
works for Mosaic and last
Thursday, the GEO Tech group
went to the Rays game in
Tampa. It was one of those
good days where they won,
which they have been doing
lately! Then to top off a perfect
day, they all stopped and
enjoyed a delicious steak meal
on the way home.
Mary Lois and Leonard
Crawley are back home. Mary
Lois stayed three weeks with
her sister until she made her
final journey.
Michelle and James Youmans
and children went to Jack-
sonville last week for their
aunt's funeral. They have a real-
ly cute and very spoiled English
bull named Pumpkin. I fed her
the morning they were not
home and besides having the air
on for her comfort, she has her
own floor fan blowing directly
on her bed!
The Desert Rose flower is a
pretty flower and one that it
seems like I have to pamper.
The other day I was at Pam
Northrup's and .she has one
growing in her yard and it had
more blossoms on it than any I
have ever seen. Maybe it is all
this hot, dry weather!
Harry Northrup celebrated
his 70th birthday but said he did
not feel anydifferent than the.
day before.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Idelle
Sasser Jones. She made her
final journey last week and had
a beautiful service last Sat-
urday. One.of the speakers was
her grandson, and he said his
grandmother never gave up on
him but always prayed for him.
That is a good legacy and some-
thing all us grandparents need
to do.
An interesting item about
Idelle Sasser is she graduated in
the same class as my sister-in-
law, Avis Sasser. That class had
their high school class reunion


dinner last Saturday. The num-
ber left to gather continues to
get smaller. They always have.a
good time, remembering when!
Our sincere sympathy is also
extended to the family of
Myrtle Knight. Her husband,
Marlin, and my late husband,
Kay Silverman, worked togeth-
er for quite some time. Myrtle
was a homemaker and a very
good cook! She will be missed.
Our sympathy is extended to
the family of Billy Grimsley on
the death of his mother. Billy
and Joann were members of
Fort Green.
There was a good group that
turned out early last Saturday
morning to work at the
Methodist Cemetery. We want-
ed to get it cleaned up before
Homecoming at Fort Green
Baptist. We accomplished quite
a bit of work in the two hours
that we had allotted ourselves.
Rex Richey worked fast
Saturday at the Methodist
Cemetery because he said they
were having a family reunion
and he still had some chores at
home! There is plenty to do
before a family reunion, but it is
always worth it.
Tractor Supply has paper
clovers in their store until May
13 and they ask you if you want
to donate a dollar and a clover
to the local 4-H clubs. They
have this fund-raiser twice a
year. Last year they were sec-
ond highest in the Southeast
receiving money to donate to
the local 4-H Foundation. Now,
that is a great compliment for
the citizens of Hardee County
and Tractor Supply. The money
is used for the members of 4-H.
We had a good Homecoming
service at Fort Green Baptist.
Brother Ron Corum preached
and he is one good preacher.
He holds your attention,
preaches the Word and has
some humor involved. The
choir did some special music
and it was terrific.
The dog at my grandson's
home now has a new good
home, but there is another one,
big black with white chest, real
friendly and a collar. Please call
if it is yours!
There will be no evening
services at Fort Green on
Mother's Day. Hope you all
have a super one!
Pray for each other and our
country.


For the first half of your life, people tell you what you
should do; for the second half, they tell you what you
should have done.

Advanced Courses Why Bother?
by Peggy Saddler


In March, eighth graders and high school
students began registering for next year's classes,
It's olten a task that many teens don't take
seriously after all, next August is months away.
It is human nature to take the path of least resistance;
teens are certainly no exception to this rule. Often. the
first conversation about course selection will begin, with
the student saying, "I'd rather take some easy classes
so I can enjoy next year." The response to this thinking
from counselors and teachers is, "Challenge yourself!"
Understandingwhyit'simportanttoenroll inadvanced
classes begins with knowing the available options. Hardee
High offers three levels of advanced coursework: Honors,
Advanced Placement (AP), and Dual Enrollment (DE).
Honors courses are more challenging than regular
courses, and receive an additional .5 weight for GPA
purposes. AP and DE courses are considered college
level courses and receive 1.0 extra weight. AP courses are
primarily delivered on the site of Hardee High School,
whereas DE courses are primarily delivered on the campus
of South Florida State College, with an occasional exception.
State and national expectations are rising for high
schools and their students. Studies show that students who

are better prepared for college or post-secondary
training, and in turn have higher incomes as adults.
Additionally, students who have
taken accelerated course work tend to develop
better critical thinking skills' necessary for
the multitude of standardized tests today's
students encounter. Accessibility to advanced
coursework at HHS provides students with the
opportunity to rise to meet elevated expectations.
Research. has shown that the rigor of a
student's high school curriculum is the single
best predictor of success in college. Often.
students use the fear of hurting their GPA as an
excuse for not enrolling in advanced courses, but
admissions officers are not impressed by straight'
A's when they are all earned in basic courses.
According to Dan Saracinio, assistant
provost for enrollment at the University of Notre

How to Track Down Financial Assistance
Programs for Seniors
Dear Savvy Senior,
What resources can you recommend for locating government assir-
tance programs for seniors? My husband and I have been helping
support his mother for the past three years and we can't afford to
do it any longer.
Tapped Out


Dear Tapped,
Locating government benefits and financial


assistance pro-


grams for seniors is actually pretty easy to do thanks to two key
resources created by the National Council on Aging (NCOA) and
the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a). Here's
where .you can turn to for help.
Online Search
If you have access to the Internet, the easiest and most con-
venient way to search for benefits for seniors is at benefitscheck-
up.org.
Created by the NCOA 10 years ago, BenefitsCheckUp is a
free, confidential web-based service that helps low-income seniors
and their families identify federal, state and private benefits pro-
grams that can help with prescription drug costs, health care, utili-
ties, and other basic needs. This site contains more than 2,000 pro-
grams across the country.
To help identify benefits that could help your mother-in-law,
you'll need to fill out an online questionnaire that asks things like
her date of birth, zip code, expenses, income, assets, veteran status
and a few other factors. It takes about 15 minutes to complete.
Once completed, you'll get a report detailing all programs and
services she may be eligible for. You can also apply for many of the
programs online, or you can print an application form, fill it out and
mail it in.
Phone Assistance
If, however, you don't have Internet access you can also get
help over the phone by calling the Eldercare Locator (800-677-
1116), which will assign you a counselor to review your mother-in-
law's situation, and provide you with a list of possible programs
she may be'eligible for, and who to contact to get the ball rolling.
Types of Benefits
Depending on her income level and where she lives, some of
the different benefits that may be available to your mother-in-law
include:
Food Assistance: Programs like the Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program (SNAP) can help pay for her groceries. The
average monthly SNAP benefit is currently $119 for seniors-living
alone. Other programs that may help include the Emergency Food
Assistance Program, Commodity Supplemental Food Program, and
the Senior Farmers' Market Nutrition Program.
Health Assistance: Medicaid and Medicare Savings Programs
can help or completely pay for out-of-pocket health care costs.
And, there are special Medicaid waiver programs that provide in-
home care and assistance.
Prescription Assistance: There are hundreds of programs
offered through pharmaceutical companies, government agencies
and charitable organizations that help lower or eliminate prescrip-
tion drug costs, including the federal Low Income Subsidy known
as "Extra Help" that pays premiums, deductibles and prescription
copayments for Medicare Part D beneficiaries.
Heating and Cooling Assistance: There's the Low Income
Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), as well as local util-
ity companies and charitable organizations that provide assistance
in lowering home heating and cooling costs.
Supplemental Security Income (SSI): Administered by the
Social Security Administration, SSI provides monthly payments to
very low income seniors, age 65 and older, as well as to those who
are blind and disabled. The average SSI payment is around $500
per month.
In addition to these programs, there are numerous other bene-
fits such as HUD housing options, home weatherization assistance,
tax relief, various veteran's benefits, transportation, respite care
and free legal assistance.
