Unruly Crowds Disrupt County Meeting


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Citizens have been growing
increasingly unruly at recent
County Commission meetings,
oftentimes standing up from the
audience and shouting over
commissioners or interrupting
the discussion taking place with
sarcastic applause and com-
ments.
As Thursday night's meeting
ended, a Hardee County sher-


iff's deputy had to clear the
commission chambers and then
disband the crowd as it carried
over to the steps outside the
courthouse.
Audience members were
upset when Vice Chairman Sue
Birge, filling in for the absent
Minor Bryant, adjourned the
meeting without letting John
Rehill, who had already ad-
dressed the commission earlier
in the meeting, have another


chance to speak.
As Rehill continued to talk
after the meeting was adjourned
and his microphone was turned
off, citizens insisted he be
allowed to speak.
Birge then repeated that the
meeting was adjourned and left
the room.
Several members of the audi-
ence were angry at the remain-
ing commissioners, and wanted
to know why Rehill could not


speak again.
Capt. Jim Hall of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office, who
attended the entire meeting,
moved to the front of the room
to disperse the displeased
crowd. He told them the meet-
ing was over and to exit the
building.
Audience members then
moved outside and congregated
around the steps at the court-
house doors. Hall then went

outside and moved the group
across the road to the parking
lot.
He stayed until all commis-
sioners had left and County
Manager Lex Albritton locked
the County Courthouse doors
and made it to his vehicle.
Some of the remaining audi-
ence members outside were
upset, and they yelled exple-
tives when the deputy escorted
the manager and his wife to

their vehicle.
Rehill, a writer for a Brad-
enton news website, was at the
meeting to address comments
made by the commission about
an article he wrote recently
involving Resthaven and
Federal Emergency Manage-'
tnent Agency money from
Hurricane Charley.
He told the commissioners he

9 Apply For $4.4 Million In Grants

EDA, Municipalities Will Hear The Requests Tuesday Night


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
When is a $5 bill a $20 bill?
When Richard James Adams
makes it one, law enforcement
authorities have alleged.
Adams, 49, of 4098 Sunset
Dr., Zolfo Springs, was arrested
by the Hardee County Drug
Task Force on Friday morning
following a raid at his home.
He was booked into the
Hardee County Jail on seven
counts of counterfeiting a bill, a
third-degree felony, and on mis-
demeanor counts of possession
of marijuana and possession of
narcotics equipment.
Bond was set at $8,000 cash
or surety, which Adams posted
at 5:41 p.m. that same day to
gain his release from custody as
he awaits trial on the charges
against him.
According to Maj. Randy
Dey of the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office, a spokesman
for the inter-agency Drug Task
Force, the arrest began simply
enough, with the execution of a
search warrant at about 8:15
a.m.
Detectives found evidence of
drug activity, but also several
suspicious bills, he alleged.
A search of Adams' home and
property allegedly revealed a
metal pipe with marijuana
residue on the counter in the


master bathroom, a plastic bag
containing marijuana seeds in
the top drawer of a nightstand,
and three aluminum-foil "crack
boats" with methamphetamine
residue on them in a burn pile at
the southwest corner of the
property.
Also discovered were seven
counterfeited U.S. currency
bills, Dey alleged.
The bills, he said, were locat-
ed inside a jewelry box stored
in the master bathroom.
Four of the seven bills were
of official U.S. currency paper,
three were not, he described.
The four bills appeared to
have been bleached or in some
other way altered to remove the
ink of the actual denomination,
$5. Qne bill was still complete-

Each municipality will then
.rank the nine applicants in order
of priority, and forward their
results to the EDA board, which
will be awarding the grant dol-
lars on or around July 24.
The presentation meeting
will be held in the County
Commission Chambers at the
Hardee County Courthouse this
coming Tuesday night at 6.
The Industrial Development
Authority will be making four
of the applications.
Two of the applications are
for spec buildings for compa-
nies looking to relocate in
Hardee County. Each is for $1
million.
One spec building, if award-
ed, would be built in the Hardee
County Commerce Park, and
would be for a hydraulics com-
pany. The other grant would be
to construct a new building or
retrofit an existing building for
a Polish-American bakery.
The third IDA application is
to construct a Sheriff's Office
outpost/pretreatment facility in
the Commerce Park. The sher-
iff's outpost would help provide
security for the park while also
providing officers patrolling the
north and west sides of the
county a place to work.
The pretreatment facility
would help alleviate problems
with the sewer plant by treating
the wastewater before it goes
into the system.
The last IDA grant does not


list an amount but is seeking
money to expand water and
sewer services all along the
U.S. 17 corridor, from Wau-
chula to Bowling Green and
Wauchula to Zolfo Springs.
Next, the Hardee County
Economic Development Coun-
cil is applying for a $150,000
grant for operating expenses for
its office. The EDC board
decided to ask for EDA funding
in.hopes it will not have to,
make a request to the County
Commission for operating
expenses.
UFOLLO Inc., a support/call
center along with data/network
administration, is seeking


$750,000 in funding. The com-
pany needs a roughly 12,000-
squarc-foot building, and antic-
ipates supplying 70 jobs with an
average salary of $30,000 per
year. The company president is
Randy Woodruff of Brooks-
ville.
The city of Bowling Green is
seeking $425,722 to begin
developing the Centanino,
Industrial Park in Bowling
Green. The city was given the
large piece of property in 1991,
when Bowling Green business-
man Angelo Centanino died. He
wanted the city to use the prop-
erty for recreational or industri-

Wauchula has one. Even
Bowling Green has one.
Now, Zolfo Springs wants
one, too.
The town fathers, and moth-
ers, were all in agreement
Monday night: They want a
Main Street.


It began with a request from
the state Department of Trans-
portation offices in Bartow to
transfer jurisdiction over the
current lanes of U.S. 17 to the
town of Zolfo Springs. The four
lanes currently run north to
south through the middle of
town.
But, in the DOT plan to four-
lane U.S. 17 south of the town,
it intends to reroute the high-
way's path, taking the four
lanes over to what once was the
railroad bed running north to
south throughout the entire
county,
That would leave an "old"
17.
As Zolfo Springs Town
Commission members Juan
Otero, Lois Dandridge, Rhonda
Long and DiDi White Sara
Schofield was absent dis-
cussed taking over responsibili-
ty for the current roadway, the
topic of naming it came up.
And a vote quickly followed.

him a liar and a criminal, and
saying that he belonged in jail.
"There are issues with my
pieces that haven't been
addressed that are actually
criminal activities," he told the
commission.
Birge told Rehill he was
allowed to make comments, but
not to ask questions of the com-
mission because it was not
advertised on the meeting agen-
da.
Later in the meeting, Frank
Kirkland addressed the com-
mission on behalf of Hank
Kuhlman, who could not attend.
Kuhlman wants county attorney
Ken Evers and all legal services
to be evaluated by the commis-
sion.
Kirkland asked to have

tor Bill Lambert evaluated as

Commissioner Dale Johnson

are running this board, and I
don't think they are elected offi-

Stan Kirkland, Frank Kirk-

Johnson.
Johnson replied, "Are you

he evaluates employees every

you (Kirkland) can bash the
attorney like you have bashed
the rest of us."
Added Johnson. "You have
elected us to do this job, now let
us do it. We have to draw the
line here somewhere."
Nancy Craft then said the
reason some citizens are acting
the way they are is that past
boards have deceived and lied
to residents.
Her response drew loud
applause and hollering from the
crowd.
When she finished, Birge
began to adjourn the meeting
while Robert Cole approached
the podium. Cole repeated his
position as stated at previous
commission meetings, that
Deputy Fire Chief Bob Clayton
is not qualified to serve as the
deputy chief or in his current
position as interim chief.
Cole said Clayton is not a
county resident, which he said
is-required, and wanted to know
who was responding to and was
in charge of fires during nights
and weekends. Cole then began
directing questions directly to
County Manager Albritton
about personnel files.
Albritton did not answer the
questions, and told Cole the
procedure was for him to
address the chairman, not him
directly. Cole then asked Birge
the same question, which she
instructed Albritton to answer.
This caused another loud out-
burst from the crowd and trig-
gered Birge to bang the gavel
down and take back the floor.
"We will have order in this
room," she said.
After Cole finished, Birge
then again began closing the
meeting by making final
'announcements.
This time, Rehill approached
the podium and wanted to speak
again as Birge adjourned the
meeting.
Rehill then said he had just
one request to make when Birge
told him the meeting was over.

Students Build A Future At HHS


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
An old Chinese Proverb
says, "Give a-man a fish you
feed him for a day, teach a man
to fish you feed him for a life-
time."
Bill Anderson is the building
program teacher at Hardee
Senior High School. He has
been working hard to teach his
students skills they may need
throughout their lifetime.
Over the years, Anderson has
taught teenagers building tech-
niques needed to create such
things as picnic tables, benches
and other items. These products
would then be sold to make a
profit for his classes to continue
building.
About two years ago, he
came up with the idea to broad-
en his students' constiIuction
knowledge, but not build things
to sell. "This was the first time
in eight years funds would be in
the deletion mode instead of
building projects to fund the
program," said Anderson.
That's how the whole "mini-
mall" concept came to Ander-
son.
His original plan was to have
the mini-mall wrap around the
inside of the school's work-
shop, but while figuring out the
costs he soon realized he would
have to drastically cut back on
the number of "storefronts"
they could build.
After purchasing of some
items needed to build the mini-
mall, Anderson's funds dwin-
dled even further.
That prompted him to go to


the Chamber of Commerce to
seek help and donations for this
project. He wentt with a blue-
print for four structures with
different designs that he was
hoping to build.
His only responses were
from Michael Scheipsmeier and
David Royal. Scheipsmeier
helped by getting managers
Diane Laspina and Calvin
Roberts at Vision Ace
Hardware and Miller's Central


Air from Lake Placid involved
with this project.
Anderson also received help
from Jim Pitman at Florida Tile
in Lakeland and Oakwood
Construction.
All of these businesses
donated money, supplies and
tools to help the students in the
building program learn about
the construction of large struc-
tures. Ace also donated T-shirts
for the around 150 students of
Anderson's.
After receiving all of the
donations, Anderson's ad-
vanced classes, or about 50 stu-
dents, began to build the mini-
mall.
Each storefront costs around
$500 to build, and thanks to the
donations from Vision Ace,
Oakwood, Florida Tile and MS
Builders, the advanced classes
have been able to continue con-
structing the 13-foot high by
60-foot wide mini-mall.
Although not fully finished,
the mini-mall is coming along
just as planned. Since it's
almost done, Anderson wants to


proceed with his original plan
of wrapping the mini-mall
around his shop.
He wants to give his future
classes the opportunity to learn
what his advanced classes have
been doing for two years.
Through building this struc-
ture, students received ad-
vanced training in making their
own brick and stone, electrical
work, drywall, truss construc-
tion, steel roofing, cantilever'
construction, dormers, railing,
door installation, skip and
knockdown texture, framing,
and more.
In order to continue teaching
Hardee Senior High School stu-
dents these useful skills and to
expand the mini-mall, dona-
tions are being requested.
If any individual or business
would like to donate to the
building program and have his
name or company name on one
of the storefronts, contact Bill
Anderson at 773-3181. You can
also contact him through e-mail
at banderson@hardee.kl2.fl.us.


cotLTESY PHOTOS
Students in Bill Anderson's building classes have been
working hard for two years to construct stores for this
mini-mall. The structure shown here is so sturdy, in fact,
that the balcony was able to hold two students while they
installed the electricity. Plans are to keep building store-
fronts until the mall wraps around the school's work-
shop. Donations from individuals and/or businesses are
needed to make that possible.


Three students work hard to finish the roofing on this
storefront. The mini-mail is an ambitious project which
gives teens experience with real-life construction com-
ponents and skills.

The May 2012 Florida Trend magazine profiled movie and TV
star Burt Reynolds, 76, of Jupiter. He was a football offensive back
for Florida State.
As a youngster growing up in Riviera Beach he got in fights
when other boys called him by his early nickname of Mullet. He
then turned to football where he could put on pads and take out his
aggression legally.
His father was police chief of Riviera Beach when Burt was
arrested twice, for fighting and for stealing doughnuts.
After serious knee injury as a sophomore at FSU, he enrolled
at Palm Beach Junior College where a literature class professor
told him he could be an actor and to try out for a school play. He
loved acting as he first loved football. His new nickname was

On Monday regular unleaded gasoline, in Wauchula had

President Barack Obama recently became the first sitting U.S.
.president to endorse gay marriage. His view has evolved.
So far 31 states have passed measures that marriage is only
between a man and woman. Six states and the District of Columbia
have passed measures recognizing gay marriages.
Recently in North Carolina voters approved traditional mar-'
riage only by about 61 to 39 percent. Retired Southern Baptist
evangelist Billy Graham took out full page newspaper ads encour-
aging a vote for traditional marriage only, citing the Bible.
Democratic Party leaders have said this is an equal rights
issue. President Obama said we should treat others the way we
would like to be treated. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney
supports only marriage between a man and a woman. President
Obama has a traditional marriage.
Years ago who would have though this controversial subject
would be an issue in a U.S. presidential campaign?

The Central Floridai Regional Planning Council on May 9
unanimously voted to recommend, to the Hardee *County
Commission approval of the proposed CF Industries South Pasture
Mine Extension.
Other permits needed in addition to the Hardee County
Commission will be from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and
the Hardee Planning and Zoning Board.
CF mines about 400 acres a year in Hardee, has three draglines
and extracts about 3.5 million tons annually of phosphate. The
phosphate is sent by rail to their chemical complex in Plant City
where it is made into about 2.1 million tons of fertilizer. CF has
been mining here since 1978.
The two types of fertilizer product are DAP (diammonium
sphate) and MAP (Monoammonium phosphate). DAP is 2 parts
nitrogen, I part phosphate. MAP is I part nitrogen, I part phos-
phate.
The state required in 1975 that mining companies reclaim their
land. Phosphate mining began in Florida in 1890.
The proposed South Pasture Mine Extension covers 7,513
acres. About 1,095 acres is a non-mine area'. CF expects to conduct
mining activities on about 6,418 acres, including 1,488 acres of
wetlands, 214 acres of other surface waters, and 4,715 acres of
uplands.
CF has 187 employees in Hardee County plus about 63 per-
manent jobs through contractors. CF has about 750 jobs in its three
Florida counties of operations-Polk, Hillsborough and Hardee.
The permit application says no additional permitted ground-
water pumping will be required by the South Pasture Mine
Extension. SWFWMD currently permits CF to pump an average of
6.4 million gallons of water a day from groundwater pumping.
However, CF uses average daily water of 2.3 million gallons
per day (gpd) from groundwater pumping, 3.5 million gpd from
surface water, and 800,000 gpd of treated wastewater that comes


from sewer plants from the City of Wauchula and Hardee County.
CF does not plan to use more water with the South Pasture
Extension.
CF does not export any of its phosphate rock. The proposed,
mine extension would add about 10 years to CF's mining plans
here, through the year 2035.
CF is developing in Hardee County near Fort Green an Aquifer
Recharge and Recovery Project that will recharge the Floridan
Aquifer with 2 to 4 million gallons daily of sand-filtered drinking
quality water, said Crag Kovach, Florida director of environmental
affairs for CF.
The water has to meet drinking water quality standards for two
years before it can be pumped into the aquifer. Kovach hopes
pumping into the Floridan Aquifer can begin in the first half of
2014.
Gene Harrison of Lakeland on Friday won the drawing for a
2006 Ford Ranger given away by the Hardee County Cancer
Support Foundation, announced President Sami Jo Morgan and
Vice President Dr. Mark Sevigny. The drawing was at Friday Night
Live in Wauchula.
The board of directors will meet Monday, June 4, at 5 p.m. at
Dr. Sevigny's office.'
Don'Bissette has resigned as executive director due to health
reasons and will be honored at the board meeting. He has raised
thousands of dollars to help Hardee County cancer patients with
expenses such as gasoline, hotel rooms and diagnostic tests.
The foundation has helped 66 cancer patients from Hardee.
Fifteen have died. There are 51 active cases with the foundation.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will hold public hearings
June 19 in Lakeland and June 21 in Punta Gorda regarding the
Areawide Environmental Impact Statement on phosphate mining
in the Central Florida Phosphate District which includes Hardee
County.

Fort Green News
By Rilla Cooper
773-6710


Greetings from Fort Green!
Happy birthday to Ciara
Smith, who turned 10 on May
17. 6he attends Bowling Green
Elementary and is also a mem-
ber of Fort Green Baptist.
Edith Bassett and I were
delivering some of our Mo-
ther's Day flowers to some of
the shut-ins last Tuesday and
we stopped by Hardee Manor.
Harriet Hendry was doing well
per herself, and then we stopped
in to see Mrs. Hughes. She had
made flowers for all the, resi-
dents for Mother's Day and
wanted me to know she had cel-
ebrated her 88th birthday on
April 4. She does not look her
age!
There is just too much going
on today (Thursday). One of the
most important is my sister-in-
law, Avis Sasser, will get a year
older! She is another one who
does not look her age, and we
always enjoy going out to din-
ner to celebrate on her big day,
but this year the 4-H Awards
Banquet is the same night. We,
are committed to helping with'
that, and also, granddaughter
Kaylee Hogenauer will be in-
ducted into the National Junior
Honor Society! We are going to
try to rush to that at 6:30 and
then go to 4-H at 7:30. The 4-H
begins eating at 7, so hopefully
we will be back before the
awards are -presented. I am
proud of Kaylee.
Another young person to be
proud of is Grey Miller. He
received first place in the recent
Math Bash and won the Spell-
ing Bee at Bowling Green
Elementary for the second year
in a row. He is in the fourth
grade, and won both when he
was in the third grade. Way to
go, Grey!
His sister, Tara, who will
graduate this year, won a Bright
Futures Scholarship and she
told me she will have most of
her associate of arts degree
when she graduates from high
school. That is quite an accom-
plishment.
Congratulations to my grand-
son, T.K. Hogenauer, as he was
selected Employee of the
Month at Sweetbay Supermar-
ket. He began working there
when in high school and has
completed five years. They
have been real good working
his schedule around his college
classes.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of David
Gossett. Congratulations to
Helen Stevens on her retire-
ment. They are our CF neigh-
bors.
Kaylee Hogenauer sold the
most tickets for the recent Rib
Fest at Fort Green and won $30
for her effort!
Sheri and Joanna Pappas
came down for Ashlee Abbott's
wedding last Saturday night. It
was a beautiful wedding, and all
the cousins enjoyed seeing
Sheri and Joanna. They were
planning on attending Fort
Green Baptist Church Sunday
morning but had a flat tire in

only spare is that doughnut that

SonHaven Students Pen Pioneer Book

Published Copy Presented To Governor In Tallahassee


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
What started off as any other
writing and art project for the
students ,of SonHaven Prepara-
tory Academy in Wauchula
turned into a published book
which provided the gateway to
meet Gov. Rick Scott.
"The New Pioneers" is a self-
published inspirational look
through the history of Florida
and the connection of pioneer-
ing through ministry. Each
chapter ties back to the students'
families and how they came to
Hardee County.
A special trip was made to
Tallahassee earlier this month.
About half of the students who
were involved in the making of
the book were able to visit with
and present an autographed
copy of the book to Gov. Scott.
After spending the morning
participating in the National
Day of Prayer, Scott took time
later that afternoon to meet with
the SonHaven authors and
artists, and to greet each student
and get a picture with the group.
He was quite attracted to their
work, and stated his wife was
interested in researching their
ancestors.
Additionally, a copy has been


sent to First Lady Scott's office, time to observe and document
The school's original plan the history of Florida and the
was to have students go back in role their families played in


developing the area.
Approximately 50 students

,Sports are on the opposite sides of the spectrum for now,
between the Men's Church League, and youth baseball and soft-
ball,.
Hardee Youth Sports finished up its regular season on May 11.
The Marlins won the Junior Bo\s division; the Red Sox in the
Ozone or Majors division; Red Wings in the Minors; Mudcats in
Machine Pitch; and Bees taking the Tee-Ball title in a playoff
against the Scrappers.
The four older teams chose All-Stars and played in tournaments
but we don't have those results as yet. We also have not had team
pictures and would love to put them in the paper.
Similarly, in Miss Hardee Softball, JLC Harvesting won in the
16-and-under or Belles division; State Farm outpointed CF
Industries to take the 12-and-under or Tweens division; Hardee
Petroleum won the 10-and-under or Angels division; Ag Comp
won the 8-and-under or Dixie D, .gs; and Mosaic won the 5-6 or
Tee-Ball division.
The four older teams chose All-Stars and played in the Miss
Florida State softball team in Winter Haven last weekend, with the
10-and-unders outscoring opponents 44 to 6 in their five games and
clinching the state tournament title in their division. The 12 and-
unders placed fourth.
Men's Church League finished its regular season and began a


post-season tournament. San Alfonso Chapel and First Christian
Church were tied with 12-1 records as it came down to the final
evening, which included a game between these two teams before
starting the tournament. We haven't gotten a scorebook since then,
but expect to have one shortly.
New sports are starting.
The Hardee Wildcats played each other in the Orange-Blue
game last weekend and 'will play their Spring Classic at home this

Savvy Senior
By Jim Miller
Senior Advocate


'Savvy' Senior" is a syndicated column about older Americans
published in more than 400 newspapers and magazines nation-
wice. Senior advocate Jim Miller is al.o a contributor on NBC's
"Today" show and is the author oJfseveral books. He has been fea-
tured in such publications as "Time" magazine, USA Today and
The New York Times and has made multiple television appear-
ances. Miller resides in Oklahoma. His question-and-answer col-
umn will appear weekly in this newspaper.
Adult Tricycles for Boomers and Beyond
Dear Savvy Senior,
What can you tell me about three-wheeled bicycles? I'm 67 years
old and would like to take up recreational bike riding but don't
trust myself on a two-wheeler.
Unbalanced Bonnie
Dear Bonnie,
Three-wheeled bikes also known as adult tricycles -are a
great cycling option for older boomers and seniors, especially those
who have concerns with their balance or stamina. Here's what you
should know, along with some tips to help you shop for one.
/ Safer Cycling
If you'd like to take up bike riding, but worry about falling, an
adult tricycle is a smart option to consider because of the stability
it provides. With a tricycle, you can ride as slow as you want with-
out ever losing your balance and you can put both feet on the
ground while seated, which is very reassuring for many older rid-
ers.
In addition, adult tricycles are also made with a low "step
through" design making mounting and dismounting much easier
than a traditional bike; they come with big tires that ensure a
smooth ride; have raised, ergonomic handlebars that are easier to
reach and grip; and offer oversize seats (some even have backrests)
for comfort and support. And, other than the frame, tricycles use
the same standard components as traditional bikes do, so replace-
ment parts are readily available, and repairs are not an issue.
Types of Tricycles
There are literally dozens of different types of adult tricycles
to choose from with prices ranging anywhere from a few hundred
to several thousand dollars. To help you figure out the right kind of
tricycle that meets your needs and budget, here's a breakdown of
the different styles and costs, along with some popular models to
checkout.
Upright: If you're primarily interested in a leisurely ride
around the neighborhood for pleasure, fitness or running errands,
upright trikes are a good choice. These are traditional upright-posi-
tioned tricycles that come with rear cargo baskets and limited gear
options usually ranging from one to three-speeds. Some popular
models in this category include the Schwinn Meridian Adult
Tricycle sold at Walmart and Target for around $270, the Sun
Traditional 24 trike (see sunbicycles.com) that retails for around
$375, and the Torker TriStar three-speed (torkerusa.com) which
costs around $500.
Recumbent: These are the lower-to-the-ground, stretched-out
frame tricycles that allow you to recline with your legs positioned
in front of you. Available in various styles, recumbent trikes are
very comfy, easy on the back and aerodynamic which make them
ideal for long rides. See terratrike.com, sunbicycles.com, industri-
albicycles.com, trailmate.com and bikemania.biz for a nice variety,
but be aware that recumbent trikes are more expensive than upright
models, typically ranging between $800 and $2,500.
Tandem: If you plan to ride-primarily with your spouse or


another partner, you may want to get a tandem tricycle that comes
with two seats (front and back), or you can get a double seat tricy-
cle with the seats side-by-side. You can find these types of bikes for
around $1,000 to $2,000, at the same websites that offer recumbent
trikes.
Folding: If you like to travel or if you have limited storage
space, tricycles that are designed to fold up to fit in tight spaces are
another popular option. The Adventurer Three-Speed Folding Trike
which sells for S390 at adventurebikes.com, Kent Westport Folding
Tricycle sold at Target and amazon.com for $300, and Walmart's
Port-O-Trike 3-Speed Folding Tricycle for $400 are three good
folding trikes to consider.
Electric: If you need a boost from time to time, electric tricy-
cles are hybrids that have pedals and an electric motor, so you can


exercise when you want or you can sit back and let'the trike do the
work. Some good options include the EW-88 electric trike at elec-
tricwheelstore.com for $1,200, and the Cabbike 3 Electric Tricycle
offered through cabbikes.com for $979.

Hardee Chamber of Commerce


Sponsors Leadership Seminar


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
About 110 people attended a
Chick-fil-A Leadercast May 4
at Florida's First Assembly of
God Church in Wauchula. The
event was sponsored by the
Hardee County Chamber of
Commerce, and admission
costs were'$55 to $70. This was
part of a nationwide simulcast.
Ohio State head football
coach Urban Meyer said he
observes family night on
Thursday and that Sunday is
devoted to church and family.
The father schedules regular
date nights with his daughters.
He said it is important to be dis-
ciplined.
Meyer praised Tim Tebow,
his former quarterback at the
University of Florida. He said
Tebow is "the greatest college
football player of all time. He
has character, work ethic,
toughness, and a competitive
spirit."
Meyer said Tebow "makes
you look inward, to self-evalu-
ate. Look at his actions and
faith. He believes in making
your day brighter."
Tebow, a quarterback for the
New York Jets, said leadership
involves loving what you do,
being passionate and influenc-
ing others. "You can change
someone's life by how you live.
Character involves doing your
best with all your heart."
Meyer said leadership
involves being selfless, having
a strong work ethic, putting the
team ahead of yourself, and
raising the level of those around
you through work and effort.
Tebow said he does not worry
about what he cannot control.
"You can control your attitude,
effort, focus and how you treat
your teammates." He said he
has been getting on a knee and
praying during football games
for seven years. Some people
call this "Tebowing."
Meyer said he focuses on his
faith and family, even if being
criticized or having a bad day.
Tebow said, "I don't worry
about the future because I know
who holds the future. At the end
of the day football is just a
game. I try to be a great football
player. I try to win. I want to
give others a brighter day.
There are more important
things than football." Tebow's
foundation helps support 650
orphans. He likes to help chil-
dren with life-threatening ill-
nesses.
Tebow said being a leader
involves loving what you do,
being passionate every day, and
being willing to sacrifice.
An executive of Home
Depot, which has 2,000 stores
and 300,000 associates, said
every store has a charity. The
benevolence began when a
woman came to a store with $5
needing to fix her leaky roof.
The store wound up donating
the roofing materials, and store
employees provided the labor
on their time off. He said cus-
tomers are "precious. Take care
of customers and associates."
Angela Ahrendts of Burberry
company in England cited the
virtues of trust, intuition, peo-
ple, values, vision, technology
and brand.
Motivational author John
Maxwell stressed the impor-
tance of daily personal growth
and said "your life can be
changed by a thought or a deci-
sion.
"We grow on purpose. It does
not automatically happen.
Growth has to be intentional.
The choices you make make
you. By the time you are born"
you already owe your mother
for nine months of room and
board. The secret to growing is
to do it every day. The secret of
success is your daily agenda. Be
intentional every day.
"You want to bet on yourself.
.We must know ourselves to
develop ourselves. I have to
know me to grow me. What is
expected of me? What gives me
the greatest return? What do I
do well? Work on our strengths.
Put personal growth to our
strengths. What is rewarding to
me? What do I love to do?
Passion gives energy," said
Maxwell.
"Growth thrives in conducive
environments. Many of us are
not in a growing environment.
Create one. Go where others are
smarter and better. We need to


be continuously challenged..
Our focus should be forward.
Yesterday ended last night. Get


over it. Be in an attirming
atmosphere. Get out of your
comfort zone. Work on your
strong areas. Failure is not my
enemy. You are going to mess
up. Fail forward. Desire change
to grow. Visit great places.
Greatness is within you. You
cannot lock out greatness. Be
all that you can be."
Harvard economics professor
Dr. Roland Fryer said America
spends $12,000 to $13,000 per
student a year, ranking No. 4 in'
spending but is No. 20 in
results. "Ten percent of black
students in Atlanta can read at
grade level. Three percent of
black students in Detroit in the
eighth grade can do math at
grade level."
Spending more on education
does not guarantee better
results, he said. "Test students
often. Work on their weak
areas. Break them into small
groups. Have high expectations,
with no excuses. Thirty percent
of high school graduates cannot
pass the entrance requirements
for the Armed Services.
"Change the culture of low
expectations. Give tough love.
Hold kids accountable. For kids
at the bottom, test them more
often," said Dr. Fryer.
The leadership team of
GIANT Impact said people
must make choices every day. If
we are honest, none of us truly
knows the power of a single
choice.
Choices made determine the
leaders people become. A single
decision can affect people
around you, leading them into
action which can create a big
impact in your local community
and even influence change in
the world at large.
Some choices are minor.
Others are incredibly important.
People are encouraged to make
choices that strengthen your
family, impact your workplace,
influence your communities,
and leave the world a better
place.
Chick-fil-A President Dan
Cathy quoted Mother Theresa,
"Be faithful in small things
because it is in them that your
strength lies."
Cathy said, "We all make
daily choices that collectively
have a profound impact on our
lives and the lives of those
around us.
"When we are met with big
decisions in life, the influence
of our family, friends, mentors
and fellow leaders make the


most difference.,That's why we
must continue to surround our-
selves with people we respect
and people who challenge us in
all aspects of our development:
mental, emotional, physical,
intellectual and spiritual.
The first leadership speaker.
was Andy Stanley, author, pas-
tor and founder of North Point
Ministries which started in
1995 with one church in
Atlanta. North Point has grown
to five Atlanta area churches
and has helped plant 30 other
churches. He said a leadership
goal is to navigate uncertainty.
CNN reporter Soledad
O'Brien said a person can be a
looter or'a lifeline. "The choice
is yours."
Author Marcus Buckingham
said, "If we have to know with-
out a doubt that the choices we
are making are the perfect ones,
we risk never making any
choices at all."
Angela Ahrendts of London
luxury clothing company
Burberry said, "The biggest
mistake a leader can make is
not listening."
Author John Maxwell said,
"If you are a leader and you feel
isolated, then you are not doing
something right. Loneliness on
the part of a leader is a choice. I
choose to take the journey with
people. I hope you do, too."
Ohio State head football
coach Urban Meyer said, "I
have yet to be in a game where
luck was involved. Well-pre-
pared players make plays. I
have yet to be in a game where
the most prepared team did not
win."
NFL football player Tim
Tebow wrote in his book
Through My Eyes, "We all
know of people who thought
they could do it (whatever 'it'
is) tomorrow. We have all pro-
crastinated in such a way, and
often to our personal regret ...
So often that better time either
never comes or really is no bet-
ter or more appropriate after
all."
Columbia University busi-
ness professor Dr. Sheena
lyengar said, "When we speak
of choice, what we mean is the
ability to exercise control over
ourselves and our environment.
In order to choose, we must first
perceive that control is possi-
ble."
Business consultant Patrick
Lencioni said, "If everything is
important, then nothing is."
John Maxwell said a heart


attack influenced him to exer-
cise and eat healthy so he could
live longer and influence more
people. He advises learning
from life's experiences.
Maxwell said to embrace bdt-
tom line thinking. When
touched by a significant life
event, ask "How will my life
improve by making change?
What is at stake if everything
remains the same?"


Maxwell quoted Samuel
Johnson, "People need to be
reminded more often than they
need to be instructed."
Breaking a bad habit involves
reminding ourselves of the
action we need to take and what
is ultimately at stake. ,
Maxwell said he learned to be
a good public speaker by prac-
tice and learning from other
successful speakers.


Maxwell said people may
have to adjust their surround-
ings. To transform a life for the
better, "We must limit our expo-
sure to negative environments.
The people closest to us have
tremendous influence over our
lives. To make the most of piv-
otal moments in our lives, we
often need to reevaluate our
relationships and to cut ties
with unhealthy acquaintances."


Wildcats Host Bartow In Spring Jamboree


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
After a good tune-up in last
week's Orange and Blue game,
the Hardee Wildcats are ready
to wrap up spring practices by
taking on the Bartow Yellow
Jackets Friday night at 7 p.m. at
Wildcat Stadium.
For the Orange and Blue
game, Head Coach Buddy
Martin split his team up as
evenly as possible and let them
compete in front of their family,
friends and fans.
The Orange team won the
game by a score of 27-20.
The Blue team got the ball to
start the game and quickly gave
it to the Orange team after not
being able to pick up a first
down.
The Orange team went right
to work with a 30-yard pass
from Kris Johnson to Nelson
Bethea. Two plays later, run-
ning back Aaron Barker ran
over right tackle for a 33 yard
touchdown. Kicker Octavio
Alvarez made the PAT and the
orange team led 7-0.
The Blue team was once
again stymied by the defense
and was forced to give the ball
back to the Orange team with-
out picking up a first down.
The Orange team kept its
momentum going with Keyonte
Holley ripping off a 30-yard run
to start the drive. The next play
Johnson found Alvarez open for
a 16-yard gain.
Three plays later, Barker
found the end zone again with a
four-yard run over the right
tackle. Alvarez's kick was good
,and-the Orange team was up 14-
0.
The Blue team quickly got
things going with Keyon Brown
opening the drive with runs of
11 and 10 yards. Then quarter-
back Jake Bolin found Derrick
Graham open for a 52-yard gain
that took the ball inside the 10-
yard line.
Kane Casso ran up the middle
for five yards and Brown fin-
ished the drive off with a two-
yard touchdown run over left
tackle.


The Alvarez PAT made it a
14-7 Orange lead with 9:56 left
in the first half.
The Orange team picked up
one first down on a pass from
Johnson to Alvarez before turn-
ing it over on downs after a
penalty stalled the drive.
On the next play, Bolin found
Brown open for a short gain but
.Brown lost the ball and the
Orange team recovered.
The Orange team was quick-
ly threatening to score after
Holley ripped off a long run
taking the ball down to the 20-
yard line.
A fumble ended the drive and
gave the ball back over to the
Blue team.
On the first play, Bolin
dropped back and found Josh
Fowler open for a long comple-
tion of about 40 yards. Brown
then ripped off a 15-yard run
and a penalty moved the ball
down to the 7.
Casso ran up the middle for
four and then Brown went the
other three for the score. The
Alvarez PAT made it 14-14
going into the half.
The Orange team got the ball
to start the second half and
Tyler Bragg got things moving
with a 20-yard run. Tim
Steedley then picked up a first
down on runs of 5 and 13 yards.
A fumble ended the drive and
gave the ball back to the Blue
team.
After picking up two first
downs, JJ Almarez ripped off a
25-yard run, moving the ball
down to the 4-yard line. Casso
finished the drive with a 1-yard


plunge up the middle. The
Alvarez kick was wide left put-
ting the Blue team up 20-14.
Tyler Bragg got the Orange
team moving with a 13-yard
gain. After a two-yard gain,
Steedley used a spin-move to
elude a defender and then ran
54-yards for a touchdown.
Alvarez missed the PAT andthe
game was knotted at 20-20 to
start the fourth quarter.
Brown picked up a first down
for the Blue team on an 18-yard
run.
Bolin then found Graham
open for a 15-yard completion.
Faced with a fourth down, the
Blue team tried a pass and
Bolin was sacked by Holley for
an 8-yard loss and gave the ball
back to the Orange team.
Barker opened the drive with
a 54-yard run over right end. On
the next play, Johnson found
Alvarez open for the game
deciding 26-yard touchdown
pass. After catching the touch-
down pass, Alvarez was called
on and made the PAT, putting
the Orange up for good at 27-20
with six minutes remaining.
The Blue team could not
muster up another score and the
Orange emerged victorious.
Now both sides are ready to
reunite and get ready for
Bartow coming to town.

At the May 9 meeting of The Wednesday Musicale, three students from Hardee High
School auditioned for the club's annual scholarship. Also recognized was Dr. Frank
Gibbs, organist at Wauchula's First Baptist Church, who was the club's 1965 scholar-
ship winner, allowing him to attend one month of band camp at the University of Miami.
He is pictured on the left with seniors Summer Palmer (piano) who plans to attend the
University of Tennessee, Erika De La Cruz (vocal/piano) and Zoo Kue (flute), who both
will be attending South Florida Community College. Standing with them are Musicale
Vice President Bess Stallings who was the program director for the afternoon. The
young musicians will receive their scholarships at the annual Hardee High Senior
Awards Ceremony on May 31 at 7 p.m. in the school's auditorium. The club will not
meet during the summer months, when the board members meet to plan for the
upcoming club year. The first meeting will be Oct. 10. For more information on the club
and its activities, call the vice president at 773-3594.


George Washington was
the only president to
receive all electoral col-
lege votes twice, in the
1788 and 1792 elections.

The rock group Fine Young
Cannibals took its name
from the title of the 1960
film "All the Fine Young

Local Woman Competing For Mrs. Florida Crown


A Bowling Green woman
will be participating in the Mrs.
Florida Pageant this weekend in
Palm Beach Gardens.
Shawna Lambert is a child
welfare professional working
for One Hope United, and is
married to Colon Lambert.
Lambert has never participat-
ed in*a beauty pageant before
now, but decided to do so after
celebrating a "milestone birth-
day" though she will not
reveal her exact age.
When asked why she wants
to be Mrs. Florida, Lambert
responded, "I want to celebrate
life and be an example that mar-
ried women can be loving
wives, career women and com-
munity activists all while being
both beautiful on the inside and
outside."
The 5-foot 10-inch blonde is
a former high school and college
basketball player who grew up
in Fort Lauderdale. Lambert
received a full scholarship to
play basketball at Florida
Southern College, where she
received a bachelor's degree in
sociology with a minor in crimi-
nology.
As a teenager, she studied
karate and competed in numer-
ous tournaments. Lambert said
one tournament in Canada did
not have any other girls in her
division, so she competed in the
junior boys division; where she
won every match and walked

away with first place.
She said as a girl growing up,
she was always into sports more
and never considered doing a
beauty pageant.
She currently serves on the
Hardee County Planning &


Zoning Board and is a member
of the First Baptist Church of
Wauchula.
Asked to pick three words
that best describe her, Lambert
cfiose "bold, brave and beauti-
ful."


The pageant will be held at
the Eissey Campus Theatre in
Palm Beach Gardens and take
place on both Saturday and
Sunday.
The women will be judged
on fitness, interviews and the
evening gown competition.
Each category will count for
one-third of each contestant's
score. Once the three events are
finished, the judges will get one
last look at the ladies before
awarding one to five points that
will be added to their final
score.
Other than a Mrs. Florida
being crowned, awards will be
given to the first and second
runners up, an audience choice
award, Mrs. Congeniality and
Mrs. Photogenic.
If she wins, Lambert would
like to continue to work for and
promote One Hope United,
where she has worked for the
past eight years. She also would
like to raise awareness for pre-
scription drug abuse and how it
affects children and families.
Lambert plans on doing her
own hair and makeup, but said
her husband will be there to
assist however he is needed.
She is feeling very excited
and confident as the day
approaches.
"Everyone thinks they will
win," she said. "I just want to
do it and have fun."

Destiny McCauley Wins

Bronze, Silver Awards


Destiny McCauley of Bowl-
ing Green has earned the Na-
tional Junior Angus Associa-
tion's Bronze and Silver awards,
according to Robin Ruff, junior
activities director of the
American Angus Association in
Saint Joseph, Mo.
The 17-year-old daughter of
Tim and Nell McCauley attends
Hardee Senior High School and
is a member of the NJAA and
the Florida Junior Angus As-
sociation.
She has participated in local,
state, regional- and national
shows and showmanship com-
petitions.
At the National Junior Angus
Show, McCauley participated in
the poster, photography, writing,
prepared and extemporaneous
public speaking, quiz bowl and
livestock judging contests, and
was the state's voting delegate
and participated in the mentor-
ing program in 2011.
She has also submitted weight

ment Records and consigned
cattle to the Georgia Beef Expo
in 2012.
The Bronze and Silver
awards are the first two levels
of the NJAA Recognition

Junior Angus breeders must
apply for the awards, then meet
point requirements in many
areas of participation before
receiving the honors. Appli-
cants are evaluated in areas of
Junior Angus Association activ-
ities and leadership, participa-
tion in showmanship, contests
and shows, using performance
testing to improve their herd
and their progress in producing
and merchandising Angus cat-
tle.
The NJAA promotes the
involvement of young people in
raising Angus cattle, while also
providing leadership and self-
development opportunities for
the nearly 6,000 active mem-
bers nationwide.

"Day At T
On Saturoay, May 12,
Community & School Aware-
ness sponsored a "Day at the
Salon" for six mothers in hon-
ors of Mother's Day.
The mothers were nominated
by their involvement in com-
munity events as well as their
involvement in the lives of the
children in the community.
Each mother was treated to a
visit to a local salon, where she
experienced the expertise of a
hair stylist. Some of the visits
included a manicure, pedicure
or facial, as well as gift bags.
After each mother's salon visit,
she enjoyed a lunch which was
donated by local restaurants.
The mothers enjoyed a well-
deserved day of just being painm-
pered.
Community & School Aware-.
ness sponsors many community
events throughout the year, and
this is the first of many
Mother's Day events, says
Katrina Blandin, founder. She
adds that children enjoy seeing
their mothers receive nice
things, it brings a smile to their
faces. Community & School

salons and restaurants, appreci-
ates the mothers in the commu-

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...
75 YEARS AGO
Many Boy Scouts aspiring to
be newspaper reporters, editors,
cartoonists or news photogra-
phers in the future will have
real experiences this summer
when they publish a daily
morning newspaper, the
"Jamboree Journal," for their
National Jamboree here from
June 30 to July 9. Others will
write their experiences for
hometown newspapers.

The board of directors of
Wauchula Kiwanis Club met at
the Presbyterian manse on
North Tenth avenue Friday
evening for their regular May
session. After much discussion
the directors adopted as an
object to beautify the "bad
spots" in the city, which will
tend to improve the appearance
of Wauchula. They also dis-
cussed the "ladies' night" enter-
tainment to be held on June 21,
at which time the Kiwanians
will entertain their wives in an
annual event. A committee
composed of President J.P.
Baillod, Emerson Clavel and
T.H. Jones was appointed to
decide the location.
Mrs. R.A. Taylor, of the Aux-
Oiliary unit of Herger Williams,
American Legion Post Number
Two, announced yesterday that
plans have been completed for
the annual Poppy Day sales in
Wauchula tomorrow. Mrs.
Taylor has been named chair-
man of the sales and states that
they will begin at 10 o'clock
tomorrow morning. Headquar-
ters will be located in the Palace
Theatre building at the intersec-
tion of North Seventh avenue
and West Main street.
The Hardee County Growers,
fresh from two consecutive vic-
tories, will meet the league-
leading Frostproof Packers in a
doubleheader at Bowling Green
Sunday afternoon, the first
game beginning promptly at 2
o'clock. The games were origi-
nally scheduled to be,played at
Wauchula but were switched to
Bowling Green due to the fact
that the latter city furnishes-a
better gate than Wauchula.

50 YEARS AGO
The Wauchula city council is
aiming at an early August sale
date for $850,000 in revenue


certificates atter approving a
revised ordinance authorizing
the sale and pledging water and
electric revenue and utility
taxes for repayment of the cer-
tificates.
Members of the Wauchula
Elementary School Safety
Patrol will be rewarded for their
year's efforts next Thursday at a
picnic at Rock Lake. The picnic
is being sponsored by the
Wauchula Police Department
and Wauchula Elementary
School.

He made it! These words
were echoed all over Hardee
county yesterday afternoon
about 1:30 p.m. as everybody
heaved a sigh of relief at the
word that Astronaut Scott
Carpenter was out of his cap-
sule and safe in a life raft after
landing in the Caribbean about
200 miles southeast of his
expected impact, point. Hun-
dreds of people here had been
.glued to their TV sets and.
radios for more than five hours
as they followed Carpenter's
historic three orbit mission
from the time his booster rocket
zoomed into space at 7:45 a.m.
until he was sighted by a plane
after landing about 12:41 p.m.

The Hardee County Cancer
Crusade came to a most suc-
cessful end last week, with the
local unit leading the state in
collections. Mrs. J.G. Anderson
Jr., crusade chairman, an-
nounced that funds collected
showed Hardee county with a
246 percent rating, with more
than $2,700 raised as compared
to the county's quota of $1,100.
Hardee was the only area
reporting more than 200 per-
cent.

25 YEARS AGO
It's time the heavy financial
burden of providing the county
with fire protection be placed
where it belongs, in the laps of
county commissioners, the
Wauchula City Council de-
clared in special session Tues-
day night. With that, the full
council voted unanimously to
accept the recommendations of
its fire protection committee
and authorize them to negotiate
with the County Commission
for a $403,920-contract for fis-

Statewide Student Assess-
ment Test scores are in for
Hardee County's 10th graders
and show them surpassing state
averages in every area, in one
instance bv as many as 10 per-


centage points, Schools Super-
intendent Peggy Shackleford
has announced. The SSAT I
measures the mastery of mini-
mum skills and standards in
reading, writing and mathemat-
ics, while the SSAT II gauges
the practical application of
those skills.
About 100 people attended
the Memorial Day Service at
the monument on U.S. 17 North
in Wauchula Monday at 11 a.m.
Presenting the colors was per-
formed by the local National
Guard consisting of Gary Yake,
Gary Chronic, David Flowers
and Francis Myers. The Pledge
of Allegiance to the flag was led
by Curtis Ezelle. Taking part in
the service were Russell Wolfe,
Scout Master of Troop 822
sponsored by the American
Legion, and Boy Scouts Heath
Shepard, Jimmy Giles and Bill
Wolfe.
Hardee County residents will
have a final opportunity Mon-
day night to let their ideas on
the Central Florida Regional
Comprehensive Plan be known
before the plan is adopted. The
growth management plan is
required by state, law and must
be adopted by July 1. The plan
covers five counties including
Hardee, DeSoto, Highlands,
Polk and Okeechobee counties
and outlines how and where
future growth will take place. It
is patterned after the state com-
prehensive plan and following
its adoption, individual counties
have until 1990 to adopt a local
comprehensive plan.

emy recently announced that

health-care providers for several
years now. Studies have shown
that diabetes has increased by 33
percent over the last decade as a
result of an increasingly seden-
tary lifestyle, the epidemic of
obesity, the growth of ethnic
groups at risk for the disease,
and the aging of the population.
To help address .this issue the
Heartland Rural Health Net-
work Inc. recently received a
Rural Health Care Services
Outreach grant from the federal
government. The grant is for a
three-year period and totals
$450,000.
Through this funding, Heart-
land Rural Health will have an
opportunity to expand several
services while adding some new
services that positively impact
both providers and patients in
the counties of Highlands,
Hardee and DeSoto and rural
portions of Polk.
Based on the continued suc-
cess of the Diabetes Master
Clinician Program in local prac-
titioners' offices, Heartland


Rural Health will have the abil-
ity to offer this program to other
providers interested in utilizing
a data registry to help track
quality indicators on diabetes
and cardiovascular care.
Funding will also continue
supporting the Community
Health Worker program that
provides individuals with
chronic-disease education and
support,
A Healthy Living Nutrition
Program will be implemented
to focus on maintaining or
improving patient wellness,
with particular emphasis on
chronic diseases, through a six-
week education curriculum.
The last component of this
grant funding includes the
implementation and evaluation
of remote monitoring systems
in patient's homes for doctors'
use.
"We are truly excited about
the opportunity," said Kelly
Johnson, health planning direc-
tor. "We anticipate that these
services will improve health
resource utilization and adop-
tion of healthier behaviors
while contributing to quality
chronic disease management
within our service area."

BULL'S-EYE! Guns among other things are what can be
found in the new gun shop in Wauchula.
Smith Southern Arms officially opened its doors on May 1.
Owner Shawn Smith has been looking forward to the opening of
his store for a few months now. All Smith was waiting on were the
licenses needed to be able to carry and sell some of the items he has
in his store.
He says he opened the shop so the people in Hardee County
would be able to go to a place in town to get their ammunition,
guns, or hunting gear during hunting season.
Items Smith sells in his store are new and used firearms, tar-
gets including head and exploding, several different types of Case
knives, stun guns, mace/pepper spray, muzzleloaders, turkey calls
and more.
Before opening up Southern Arms, Smith owned another busi-
ness in Port Charlotte. He had a body shop for about a year that due
to the bad economy he was forced to close. Now, not only does he
have his own shop, he is also working five days a week with a
Chevrolet dealership in Sebring.
Aside from being the owner at Southern Arms, Smith is also a
certified gunsmith. In order to get repairs or modifications done,
there is no need to make an appointment. Customers can just drop
in during business hours and let Smith know what is needed.
In the shop Smith takes all precautions and follows Florida
law, which he says states that all firearms need tQ be put away and
stored in a safe place when the shop is closed. To also keep his
store and items safe, Smith has added an alarm system for extra
security.
Southern Arms' business hours are Monday through Thursday
6:30 to 9 p.m., Friday 6:30 to 10 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m. to 6
p.m. These are temporary hours, since Smith hopes to be in his
shop full-time once he settles in completely.
If you would like to contact Smith Southern Arms, you can
reach Smith at 767-8890. To preview a few of the items Smith has
available, you can visit his shop's Facebook page.

Letter To The Editor

Stop Spending Money

Until IDA Reorganizes


Dear Editor:
My name is Henry Kuhlman,
I'm not from around here. After
growing up on a farm in
Nebraska and moving 21 times
in military and civilian life, I'm
not from anywhere in particu-
lar. For this, I take neither pride
nor exception. It is what it is.
Clint Eastwood played a
Stranger that rode into a conrrupt
mining town as the "High
Plains Drifter" in a 1973 movie.
Mr. Eastwood moved on after
taking care of unpleasant busi-
ness. Unlike Clint, I am not
going anywhere soon.
Mr. Eastwood had a critical


eye and the unique perspective
of a Stranger. So do I. I have
spent four decades years flying
airplanes (from F-4 Phantom
fighter jets to Boeing 747
jumbo jets). I'm still here
because I follow rules and
quickly evaluate situations. I
have little room for BS, willful
incompetence, dishonesty or
injustice. For this, I take neither
pride nor exception. It is what
it is.
Here is my perspective on
Hardee County.
Hardee is hardly a county at
all. Over time, the forces behind
power and money have concen-.

treated wealth in several fami-
lies. Over time, much of their
land was sold to mining compa-
nies that how own or overlay
29% of HC (130,000 acres).
Mining influence permeates
commissioners, commerce and
commoners. They employ few
and defile the land (there is no
profit in reclaiming mined out
land). Hardee's Mining Depart-
ment has one manager paid for
by the mining .,iustry. The
gorilla weighs 800 pounds and
sits in the living room.
Over time, the power and
money behind farming and
ranching has green-belted tax
revenue down to a pittance.
They imported permanent
cheap labor that has resulted in
a poverty rate and attendant
human service costs that are
twice the average for Florida.
Hardee County is in trouble.
The pie is getting smaller. The
piper is calling.
The coveted jobs with the
best benefits in HC are govern-
ment positions. The next best
positions are businesses at the
end of the public money pipe.
Therefore, Hardee has a welfare
"We need help" mindset.
This dependency on public
money is evidenced in the
scramble (by the same group of
insiders) for public sector jobs
that might not seem so attrac-
tive in healthier communities.
Rarely are higher qualified out-
siders with fresh ideas and
excellent track records selected
over locals that rotate through
the ranks.
Good-old-boy, back-room,
under-the-radar governance has


been the norm..Go along and
get along. Gorilla glue like fric-
tion fights to keep the status
quo for those in the know listen
to anything said by Chair
Bryant or Commissioner Dale
Johnson who thinks everything
is just peachy in HC and whose
families have ties to the phos-
phae industry such as cattle
land leases and/or citrus har-
vesting or caretaking. Their
power andc money helped get
HC in this pickle.
Things are changing. The
information age, videotaping,
outsiders, and abuses of power
have caused a slow turning of
the ship. The rudder shifts
slightly.
Then, Big Money began rain-
ing on HC from phosphate sev-
erance taxes and Mosaic,
"Sorry about ruining Hardee
County", permit money (about
$8 million per year from both
pipes). Like an 18 year old
given a million dollar inheri-
tance, HC is in a gold rush to
play catch-up for decades of go
along, get along. The results to
date from, "Ready, Fire, Aim"
have been as predictable as giv-
ing a Corvette to a 16 year old.
The County is ill prepared to
use this money wisely. Staffing,
talent, processes, and quality
control are simply not in place,
period. This may have been by
design.
Worse yet, the prospect of
millions in free public money
doled out every year by one or
two "war lords" has attracted a
morass of insiders, startups and
fraudsters. It is the perfect
storm, ripe for abuses and sorry


consequences. Think of FEMA
after a hurricane trying to stay
ahead of criticism by throwing
money into the wind.
Hardee County managers feel
pressure to get jobs and have
wasted millions on capricious
projects that sometimes smack
of cronyism with no measurable
results. Like the old military
saying, "Although we have lost
sight of the mission, we have
doubled the effort."
Hardee County insiders
seized the power and have been
going nowhere fast. Even the
best of managers (and we are
far from that) could not effec-
tively manage the peoples'
money given their staff and lack
of processes for evaluating,
managing, and measuring proj-
ects.
The Florida Inspector Gen-'
eral said, "Taxpayers deserve
the same efficiency and man-
agement procedures in tax
funded agencies as used by pri-
vately owned organizations."
So, what is the best course of
action? Start by counting back-
wards from 100. There is no
hurry, nor any possible way to
quickly spend $8 million per
year in public money from the
get-go on smart economic


development. It's not "use it or
lose it."
Step One: Stop spending
money on any IDA projects for
one year until a competent
organization is in place (This
could involve close oversight
approvals by other agencies).
Once in place, have the new
staff go back and evaluate each
IDA project since 2008 for effi-
cacy and ethics. Why was the
money spent; where did it go;
what objectives were met and
not met; any conflicts between
public positions and private
interests? Then, in a measured
and competent way, investigate
opportunities for smart growth
with full public participation in
line with a vision that benefits'
ALL citizens (not Exitus Acta
Probat).
The IDA is not capable under
the current configuration to
responsibly spend public
money, and they run the very
real risk of relegating the
County to an even bleaker post-
mining future (like imported
garbage and other stinky indus-
try projects currently in the
pipeline).

Mudcats Win Machine Pitch


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Standing on the top of the
six-team Machine Pitch divi-
sion of Hardee Youth Sports,
the Mudcats finished the 2012
season with a 12-1-2 record.
They were ahead of the
Storrm. Lugnuts, Muckdogs,
Mets and River Dogs.
Playing on the winning team
are Austin Alamia, Vincente
Cabrera. Daniel Cantu, Jake
Cole, Justin Cole, Justin Cruz,
Roberto Flores, Clayton Harris,
Palmer Klein, Michael Lam-
bert, Elias Rivera-Oxford and
Angel Saavedra.
Recording at least one game
for each of the six teams in this
division goes back to the May 4
game in which the Lugnuts won
20-5 over the River Dogs.
Kaden Bryan and Alexander
Fenton each circled the bases
three times for the Lugnuts.
Lane Revell, Wyatt Rowland,
Jackson Hancock, Robert
Mushrush, Hunter Davis and
Guillermo DeLuna each
crossed home plate twice and
Codee Walker and Xander
Hearns added a run apiece.
Hunter Powell had two hits but
was stranded each time he got
on base.
Eric Mushrush, Aiden Thom-
as, Joey McVay, Mason Shep-
ard and Dane Rischer all
crossed home plate for the
River Dogs. Contributing to the
game were Brinson Conerly,
Cody Knight, Elijah Albritton,
Joshua Garay, Christopher
Nickerson and Deontae


McDonald.
Moving to the final week of
play, May 7-11, the Monday
game was a 15-9 win for the
Storm over the Muckdogs.
Grayson Weeks, Rafael Ca-
abrera, Alejandro Solis, Manuel
Garza and Ethan Arreola were
twin-tally batters for the Storm.
Juan Garz, Derek Camilo,
Adam Torres Jr., Karson
Fennell and David Navarro
chipped in with a run apiece.
Boone Pazzaglia didn't make it
all the way to home plate.
Dean Clark was the only
Muckdog to come home twice.
Adding solo scores were Cason
Gough, Blake Rucker, Ari
Soles, John McBride, Justin
Smith, Brendan Holton and
Warren Cornell. Not getting to
home plate were Garrett
Hitabidel, Matthew Webb, and
Victor Tomsee or Adam Abel.
Tuesday, May 8, was a
thriller, with the Mets inching
past the Mudcats 11-8. There
were 19 total runs and 28 hits
during the game.
Presley Gilliard homered in
the first and the fourth innings
for the Mets, while Taijaeous
Blandin added home runs in the
third and four innings. Cayden
Johnson joined them in putting
two runs apiece on the board.
Adding solo trips around the
bases were Oscar DeLeon,
Isaac Badillo, Wilney Francois,
Bryan Flores and Zachery
Perez. Joseph Hamilton,
Miguel Avalos, and A. J. Alfaro
didn't get to home plate.
Harris and Jake Cole were the
only twin-tally batters for the


Mudcats. Klein, Justin Cole,
Cruz and Cantu each came
around to cross home plate
once.
The Thursday game was
another close encounter as the
Muckdogs won 10-8, over the
Mets.
Clark singled in the first,
third and fifth innings and
scored every time he got aboard
for the Muckdogs. Gough,
Rucker.and Hitabidel added
twin tallies and Smith chipped
in with a run.
Blandin, Gilliard and DeLeon
each circled the bases twice for
the Mets. Perez and Hamilton
added one run apiece. Gilliard
hit a trio of doubles and Badillo
added a pair of singles to score
teammates.
The season finale on May 11
was another close game, as the
Mudcats outlasted the Lugnuts
12-8.
Leadoff batter Lambert sin-
gled and doubled for the
Mudcats. Joining him in scor-
ing a pair of runs was Cabrera,
while Klein made three trips to
home plate on a pair of doubles
and a single. A Harris triple and
single helped the cause. Cantu,
Jake Cole, Alamia, Harris and
Flores each put a run on the
board.
Leadoff batter Revell was the
only twin-tally batter for the
Lugnuts. Rowland, Bryan,
Hancock, Davis, Hearns and
Mushrush added a run apiece.
Bryant smacked a double and a
triple, Hearns homered and
Hancock singled and doubled.

Range Cattle REC Celebrates 70th Birthday


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Over 425 people attended the
70th anniversary and annual
field day on April 12 at the
Range Cattle Research and
Education Center (REC) south
of Ona. REC is part of the
University of Florida Institute
of Food and Agricultural
Sciences and does extensive
research in cattle forages, other
nutrition, pest and weed con-
trol in pastures, and helps train
many domestic and foreign col-
lege students.
REC began in 1939 and
became part of UF in 1942, said
center director Dr. John
Arthington, citing its impor-
tance to thie Florida beef cattle
industry.
The faculty programs on
grazinglands have three mis-
sions: research, extension out-
reach, and education of gradu-
ate students, said Dr. Arthington
who welcomed attendees who
enjoyed a steak luncheon. He
said since 2006 the number of
master's and PhD students at
REC has tripled.
The Range Cattle REC will
benefit from a recent state
increase in the IFAS budget by
hiring 2 new faculty and 3 new
support staff. REC will also be
able to expand and improve
programs to better address
range and wildlife management
and beef cattle production, high
priorities for ranch owners and
managers.
Dr. Arthington said Range
Cattle REC has earned the
respect of Florida's many beef,
dairy and forage producers. He
invited people to contact the
REC at 863-735-1314 or
ona@ifas.ufl.edu.
State funds, agricultural busi-
ness partners, donations and
sales of calves and bulls pro-
vide the annual operating budg-
et.
Dr. Temple Grandin, well-
known professor of animal sci-
ence at Colorado State Univer-
sity, spoke on understanding
flight zone and point of balance
for low stress handling of cattle,
sheep and pigs. She said live-
stock animals circle around
handlers while maintaining a
safe distance and keeping the
people in sight.
The point of balance is usual-
ly at the animal's shoulder and
is determined by the animal's
wide angle vision, she said. All
livestock will move forward if
the handler stands behind the
point of balance. Many han-
dlers make the mistake of
standing in front of the point of
balance while attempting to
make an animal move forward
in a chute.
Animals with low stress
remain healthier and maintain
weight better. She spoke about
handling animals in pastures,
corrals, chutes or races, pens,
stockyards and truck transport.
Dr. Arthington, center direc-
tor and professor of beef cattle
management, and Reinaldo
Cooke of Oregon State Univer-
sity spoke about the impact of
temperament and human accli-
mation on the measures of per-
formance and reproduction in
beef cattle and heifers. Tem-
perament is used to describe the
fear-related responses of cattle
to human interaction. Fear can
come from genetic disposition,
previous handling experiences,
or from new or novel occur-
rence or interaction.
Cattle producers have begun
to recognize an association
between cattle temperament
and growth, carcus quality, and
reproductive performance, they

said.
They spoke on recent studies
at Range Cattle REC on the
effects of acclimation to han-
dling on measures of growth
and performance of Brahman-
crossbred heifers.
Cattle producers are encour-
aged to rethink feeding strate-
gies in changing times. High
corn prices have coincided with
lower cattle numbers nation-
wide. For fed-cattle economics
to work, feeders must remain on
forage longer before finishing
on grain. The markets are show-
ing higher prices on calves and
heavy feeders alike.
Arthington said what has not
changed is the expense to profit
relationship. Today's cattle
business environment requires
an even sharper focus on low-
cost production, which starts
with grass.
Markets reward those who
produce forage efficiently and
use it to put pounds on mar-
ketable cattle, whether they be
calves or heavy feeders. This is
an incentive to manage forage
well.
Weeds can easily cut forage
production in half or worse.
Weeds compete with grass by
sucking up water, sunshine and
soil nutrients, reducing the
quality and quantity of forage.
Weeds and brush can get out of
hand quickly, says REC. Cattle
can overgraze grass in areas
with weeds and brush, making
the situation worse.
Herbicides can be an alterna-
tive to mowing, which requires
high fuel costs and clips the
good grass along with the
weeds. Range and pasture her-
bicides are typically selective
products that control undesir-
able plants while going easy on
grasses. They have been shown
to increase forage yield by
reducing competition. Mowing
can still be effective and is
widely used.
Dr. Maria Silveira, assistant
professor of soil and water sci-
ence, spoke about managing
nitrogen fertilization in forage-
based livestock production sys-
tems. Soil nutrients are very
important. Considering the high
cost of fertilizer and environ-
mental concerns, ranchers need
to re-examine optimum fertiliz-
er rates that can sustain proper
forage growth while minimiz-
ing impacts to the environment.
The majority of forage
species cultivated in Florida
require some level of fertiliza-
tion. If nutrients are not
replaced, soil and forage pro-
ductivity will gradually decline.
Forage and soil types plus pro-
duction system (grazing pas-
tures vs. hay fields) determine
the level of fertilization
required.
Among the 17 elements con-
sidered essential for growing
forage crops are carbon, hydro-
gen, oxygen, nitrogen, phos-


phorus, potassium, calcium,
magnesium, sulfur, boron, man-
ganese, copper, zinc, molybde-
nium, iron, chlorine,and nickel.
Nitrogen is often the most lim-
iting nutrient.
Both commercial fertilizer
and organic sources such as
biosolids and animal manure
can be used as nitrogen sources.
Cost of fertilizer should be cal-
culated in terms of dollars per
pound of nutrients. Nitrogen
fertilization typically reduces
soil pH, so lime is needed to
maintain proper pH.
Fertilizer should be applied
when the forage is, actively
growing. Grasses such as
bermudagrass, limpograss and
stargrass usually require more
fertilizer applications than bahi-
agrass pastures, said Dr.
Silveira.
Reyna Hallworth, assistant
extension scientist, spoke on
planned management of private
agricultural lands to restore and
enhance Florida's native range-
land ecosystems. UF estimates
there are 11 million acres of
grazing land in Florida, with
over 3.5 million being nonfed-
eral native range, mostly from
Orlando south to the Ever-
glades.
It is estimated that 19 of the
26 counties where beef cattle
production is concentrated have
at least 100,000 acres of range.
Native rangelands can pro-
vide economic opportunities of
hunting leases and ecotourism
in addition to cattle production.
The Range Cattle REC can
assist ranchers with help for
managing native rangeland for
cattle, native game species and
non-game wildlife species,
along with water resource man-
agement. Ranchers can use
food plots for non-cattle animal
species.
Property location and history
are important, along with adja-
cent properties and their man-
agement practices. Hunting
leases can be for deer, turkey,
feral hogs or other game
species.
B.A. Sellers of the Range
Cattle REC and J.A. Ferrell of
IFAS in Gainesville said weed
management is important in
pastures and rangelands. Weeds
cost ranchers over $180 million
annually in Florida by reducing
forage quantity and quality and
causing animal injury through
toxicity and thorns/spines.
If pasture health declines,
weeds will exploit the situation


and become established. Bare
ground is the perfect environ-
ment for the establishment of
weeds. Established weeds must
be controlled with mechanical
or chemical methods. Consis-
tent and integrated weed man-
agement is both economically
and environmentally sound.
Weed species include bitter
sneezeweed, blackberry, brack-
en fern, bullrush, chickweed,
curly dock, dodder, dogfennel,
primrose, galberry, goatweed,
goldenrod, honeysuckle, horse-
nettle, horseweed, kudzu, may-
pop, stinging nettle-fireweed,
palmetto, pigweed, persimmon,
pokeberry, prickly pear, rag-
weed, thistles. tropical soda
apple, pepperweed, wax myrtle,
wild garlic and wild radish.
Dr. Joao Vendramini, forage
specialist and assistant profes-
sor, spoke about haylage of
perennial warm season grasses
in Florida.
Hay is the most widely used
method of forage conservation
in the southeast U.S.
There are significant obsta-
cles to making high-quality hay
from warm-season grasses in
Florida, including a relatively
high proportion of stems vs.
leaves of some grasses that
require more time for field dry-
ing. This increases the chances
of weather-related dry matter
losses. Poor drying conditions
from high humidity and rainfall
is also an obstacle when growth
rates of warm-season grasses
are greater in Florida.
Vendramini said haylage,
baleage and round-bale silage
are all different names for the
same method of preserving for-
age with intermediate moisture
in plastic wrapped bales. The
plastic preserves the hay.
Range Cattle REC tested the
nutritive value of 10 warm-sea-
son grasses before and after
silage, and all species decreased
nutritive value after ensiling.
The lower nutritive value is due
to the fermentation process.
Wilting is recommended to
improve the fermentation char-
acteristics and preservation of
warm season grasses with
medium-low nutritive value.
Increasing dry matter concen-
tration decreases the develop-
ment of undesirable microor-
ganisms such as Clostridia. Too
much dry matter concentration,
however, limits the desirable
fermentation process. Weather
and climate affect desired wilt-
ing times. The target dry matter
concentration to achieve
acceptable preservation is about
50 percent.
Research has shown that dry
matter concentrations below 40
percent increase the appearance
of undesirable bacteria while
dry matter concentrations above
65 percent limit the desirable
fermentation process in forages
with medium-low nutritive
value.
Haylage bales should be fed
immediately after removing
plastic to avoid spoilage losses
that occur in the presence of
oxygen. Well-preserved hay-
lage is more resistant to aerobic
deterioration; however, losses
are unavoidable after extensive
periods of exposure.


Curt Pate talked about low-stress handling of cattle.

Peace River Valley Citrus Growers


CITRUS GROWERS LEARN & TEACH
-jardee County citrus growers had a, busy season harvesting a
strong crop of oranges, tending to spring caretaking, and trying to
keep trees watered in the midst of a lingering drought. Even during
this busy ,time, local growers took time to attend a production edu-
cation meeting hosted by their grower association and to help
Hardee County third graders learn more about nutrition.
Nearly 50 growers gathered at Peace River Valley Citrus
Growers Association's recent "Grower Round Table" meeting
where University of Florida, Institute of Food & Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS) researchers shared production information. Dr.
Jimn Graham, professor of soil microbiology at the Citrus Research
& Education Center in Lake Alfred, and Dr. Bob Rouse, associate
professor of citrus horticulture at the Southwest Florida Research
& Education Center in Immokalee, teamed up to provide growers
with updates on citrus canker -'ot disease and nutritional pro-
grams.
The educational meetings are'held quarterly by PRVCGA in
an attempt to keep growers informed of cutting-edge information
and provide an opportunity for them to compare their production
techniques.
Diseases have made growing citrus economically challenging,
and all growers are trying to manage through these difficult grow-
ing scenarios. Information sharing provides the growers tips and
techniques for their individual growing situations and allows them
to try new techniques and hopefully cut costs.
,The meeting also featured lunch provided by Krause Grove
Service. Grower Glenn 'Emerson prepared' the 'meal with Susan
Krause prpving the sweet finish of tasty and beautiful citrus cup-
cakes. Handouts and videos of the presentations are available from
the association.

Hardee County agriculturalists joined together to celebrate Ag
Literacy Day by teaching local students .about nutrition. The annu-
al celebration helps schoolchildren from kindergarten through fifth
grade understand agriculture and its many benefits. Each year a
book is written by a children's author featuring a specific topic.
This year, the book called "These Healthy Farms" focused on
Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Services Adam
Putnam's Farm to School initiative to bring fresh healthy foods into
our schools. The program brings multiple benefits to Floridians
supplying healthy food to our children, marketing locally grown
farm products and hopefully creating healthier Floridians with
fewer diet-related ailments.
The book encourages healthy eating as well as gardening,
highlighting many of the nearly 300 commodities grown in Florida,
which can be incorporated into fun, tasty meals. Research shows
children who participate in gardening are more likely to eat fresh
fruits and vegetables.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture unveiled the new nutri-
tional icon "My Plate" in June 2011. The plate replaces the dated
food pyramid to clearly show potions of desired foods that should
be on everyone's plate for good health. Fresh fruits and vegetables
occupy half of the plate.
The Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association focused
on Hardee County third graders, reading at Wauchula Elementary
and North Wauchula Elementary. Former teacher and Hardee citrus
grower Bess Stallings served as the reader to each class, discussing
the book's contents with students to assure they understood and
retained the knowledge.

Growers also celebrated a new office for their association this
month with in open house event. Members and community part-
ners are invited to visit the new PRVCGA facility at 1076 N.W.
Livingston St. in Arcadia.

CINCO DE MAYO


COURTESY PHOTO
On Friday, May 4, the third- and fourth-grade classes at Bowling Green Elementary School
presented the student body with an assembly dedicated to the holiday of Cinco de Mayo.
May 5 is traditionally celebrated in many areas of North America. It commemorates a small
army of Mexican soldiers who defeated a larger French army on that day in 1862 in the town
of Puebla in Mexico. A historical program filled with traditional Mexican dances and dress
entertained the school. Shown (from left) are Giselle Munoz, Antonio Figueroa, Esmeralda
Garcia, Jorge Valencia, Jennifer Almeyda, Joaquin Tavares, Griselda Vasquez and Emilio
Garcia


Stop by and see why so

Memorial Day is a time for honoring those brave
men and women who died for our country so that
we might continue to live in peace and freedom. They
are remembered with public displays of our private

can also be honored

principles that they
gave their last full
measure to defend.
We can make an
effort to live every
day by the principles
on which our great
nation was founded.
This Memorial Day,

The sure way to miss suc-
cess is to miss the opportu-
nity, and every problem is an
opportunity.
One day a railroad clerk re-
ceived a box of watches to be
delivered to a store. Because
of a mistake, the watches
were rejected. "What shall I
do?" asked the clerk. I
"You can have them for a
few bucks apiece," said the
distributor.
Sears drew some pictures,
sent them to his friends, and
they bought the watches. He
ordered more, and enlarged
his catalog. Today the com-
pany is known as Sears.
Got a problem? Look to the
Lord. The Bible says, "If any
man lack wisdom, let him ask
of God.. .and it shall be given
him." .g..

READING REALIZATIONS


COURTESY PHOTOS
Spending time with a good book is a great accomplishment for today's children of technol-
ogy, and to encourage a total of 12 students to successfully complete the Sunshine State
Reading List of 15 books is an even greater achievement It belongs to Zolfo Springs
Elementary School as it recognizes the most recent second through fifth graders who have
reached this goal. The list, designed for grades 3-5, was completed by (left) second-grader
McKenzie Banda, (middle) fifth-grader Jose Romero-Vasquez, and (right) fourth-grader
Liliana Ramos. Each child is pictured with the 15 books read.


COURTESY PHOTOS
Florida Hospital Wauchula recently sponsored a Rural Trauma Team Development
Course, which was formed statewide to address the educational needs specific to rural
communities. The one-day class was brought here by the trauma medical directors and
trauma nursing directors at Pensacola Hospital, Tampa General, Lakeland Regional
Medical Center, Bayfront Medical Center and St. Joseph's Hospital. It emphasized a
team approach to initial care and resuscitation of the traumatized patient in a system-
atic, concise approach. Because trauma is a sudden and unexpected life-changing
event, it has the potential to affect anyone. Attending were emergency department
nurses from Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center, Florida Hospital Wauchula,
Emergency Medical Services staff, and a paramedic student from South Florida
Community College. Top photo shows the training team from various trauma centers
around the state. Below (from left) are four of the Florida Hospital nurses who took the
class, Sarah Smith, RN; Jennifer Gentry, RN; Bobby Garner, RN; and Kelly Ashworth,
RN.
