For The Herald-Advocate
As the end of the school year
draws near, Hardee graduating
seniors are taking their final
steps before entering "the real
world."
Upcoming senior activities
include the senior awards and
scholarship banquet to be held
tonight (Thursday) along with
Baccalaureate, the honors ban-
quet, graduation and Project
Graduation, a safe graduation
party.
Tonight, the high school's
auditorium will be transformed
into an extravagant scene where
honored seniors will be given
scholarly awards, including
local scholarships. The banquet
will be held at 7 p.m.
Baccalaureate is a time for
the seniors to gather together
and share their faith as a local
pastor delivers a heart-felt ser-
mon preparing the students to
embark on their lives apart from
childhood friends and away


from what they call home. This
year, the sermon will be given
by Youth Pastor Justin Worden
from New Hope Baptist
Church. Baccalaureate will be
held at First Baptist Church on
Monday, June 4, at 7 p.m.
The top graduating students
will be honored once again at
'the Honors Banquet and Hall of
Fame program held at the Agri-
Civic Center next Thursday,
June 7, at 6 p.m. One member
of the community will be
inducted into the Hall of Fame
as the students receive their
cords and stole to wear at grad-
uation.
Graduation this year will rec-
ognize those students walking
across the stage to receive their
diplomas. It will be held
Saturday, June 9, at the
Cattleman's Arena at 10 a.m.
Later that evening students will
take their last trip as a class to
Adventure Island in Tampa for
Project Graduation; the buses
will be departing at 5 p.m.

Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) predicts a 70 percent
chance of nine to 15 named
storms of 39 mph winds or
higher. Of these. NOAA says
four to eight will strengthen
into a hurricane with top winds
of 74 mph or higher.


The less active season could,
however, produce one to three
major hurricanes, with winds
over I11 mph, says a NOAA
report, noting it is the 20th
anniversary of Hurricane
Andrew, a Category 5 hurricane
which hit the Miami area on


Aug. 24, 1992.
Hardee Countians are more
apt to remember the ones in
2004, especially Hurricane
Charley, which devastated over
80 percent of Hardee County
homes and businesses. Local

"Dick" Daggett, a Democrat.
The superintendent's yearly
salary is $95,919.
There are two School Board
seats on the slate this year.
School Board members are paid
$25,387. These are non-partisan

Hardee FCAT Strong


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
The Florida Department of
Education has recently been re-
vamping the way the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) is scored.
DOE recently released scores
for third grade reading and
math, ninth and tenth grade
reading, and all the writing
scores so far.
This year, students are ex-
pected to reach higher standards
in order to pass the test, and for
those third graders, it deter-
mines their advance to the next
grade. As a district, Hardee
scored higher than the state in
both the reading and math tests.
Individually, the scores fluctu-
ated.
READING
For third grade, the state per-
centage earning a passing grade
was 56. Those local schools
scoring higher were Hilltop
Elementary with a 69, Bowling
Green Elementary with a 58,
and Wauchula Elementary with
a 60. Zolfo Springs received a
53 and North Wauchula a 51,
putting them both below par.
Although the scores aren't
exactly comparable to last year,
the state converted the 2011
scores to what would have been


used this year. On the state
level, there is only one point
difference between the scales.
The high school scored con-
sistently lower. For ninth grade,
the state's score was a 52,
Hardee Senior High scored a
38. The sophomore's state aver-
age was a 50, HHS scored a 40.
MATH
As a district, once again,
Hardee scored significantly
higher than the state average,
which was 58. Hilltop earned a
69, Bowling Green passed with
a 64, Zolfo Springs got a 67,
and Wauchula Elementary
earned a 66. North Wauchula
Elementary was the only school
to score below the state average
with a 52.
The students and teachers
together noticed the more rigor-
ous standards, and although it
reflected in the scores, it will
overall show improvement.
Schools Superintendent
David Durastanti commented
that the district outscored the
state for both the reading and
math scores.
Within the Heartland Edu-
cational Consortium, Hardee
received the highest scores for
reading and came in second for
math; only one other district

Taxes For Community Redevelopment Or?


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula commissioners de-
cided some important changes
were necessary.
At recent meetings, Com-
munity Redevelopment/Main
Street director Jessica Newman
compared programs in other
communities and suggested
changes to the Wauchula CRA
residential and commercial
grant programs.
Annual grants are limited to a
total of $20,000 for residential
and $45,000 for commercial,
with an additional $30,000 for
"developer incentive" grants.
Those totals are for the year, for
whatever number of applicants
apply. The rest of CRA funds go
for a variety of larger projects
planned over the next five
years, including replacing the
old Coker building, sidewalks,
parking lots, drainage, signs for
entryways to the city, and
restoration of the old railway
depot for a tourism business.
CRA dollars come from TIF
(tax incremental funding). The


city initiated its CRA program
in 1997, taking a portion of tax
money away from city and
county tax rolls. It froze rev-
enue at 1997 levels and applied
any excess to the CRA, an aver-
age of $500,000 a year. It was


supposed to end in 2022, but
was recently extended to 2027.
Commissioners reviewed
grants for the last three years
and felt some of the money
would have been better spent on
needed improvements on dilap-


idated buildings or homes.
The CRA description says
residential grants are to encour-
age rehabilitation, preservation
and maintenance of residential
structures within the Com-
munity Redevelopment Dis-


trict, which is nearly all of the
community except Briarwood
and parts of Knollwood.
Similarly, the commercial
program is to eliminate and pre-
vent the spread of slums and

Which building most needs tax dollars? The building at left off U.S. 17 North either needs replacement or extensive
remodeling, while the former Manley office building (right), bought at auction by a local dentist, is receiving Community
Redevelopment Agency tax funds for some interior remodeling. CRA monies are to remove blight and improve a home
or business's appearance for the community.

It looks like Hardee High School will have an excellent varsi-
ty football team for at least the next two years.
Last Friday the Wildcats came from behind to defeat the
Bartow Yellow Jackets 21-17 at Hardee Stadium in the spring game
which had the feel of a regular season matchup. Atoning for two
lost fumbles Aaron Barker made a great long run for the winning
touchdown.
The Wildcat defense, led by ends Keyon Brown and James
Greene, helped stop a game-ending two-minute drive by Bartow.
If Hardee can put together a stronger defensive backfield,
which lost all its starters in 2011, the Cats could be playoff-bound
in 2012 and 2013. Hardee has some fine coaches, led by head
coach Buddy Martin. Hardee last played for the state title in 1995.
Regular unleaded gasoline prices continue to fall, with $3.21
reported on Wednesday in Wauchula.
Another school year is ending, with HHS graduation set for
June 9. There will be about 223 graduates.
Florida needs more manufacturing jobs to support other econ-
omy sectors such as tourism, construction, agriculture and the
space industry, reports Nancy Stephens, director for the
Manufacturers Association of Florida based in Tallahassee.
She said the governor's office estimates Florida will need
120,000 new workers through 2018 in the fields of STEM (science,
technology, engineering and math).
The Cracker Trail Museum at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs
will celebrate its 45th birthday Thursday, June 21, from 5 to 8 p.m.
The public is invited to attend. The museum is a great asset for
Hardee County.

scored higher within the sur-
rounding counties. Durastanti
credits this achievement to the
"'support of parents, faculty,
staff, support personnel, admin-
istrators, business partners,
churches and civic organiza-
tions" within the county.
In a move toward fully im-
plementing the Common Core
Standards, which will be done
in 2015, the state is starting to
slowly make the transition and
has begun using the more
demanding scale this year.
In addition to the nationwide
Common Core Standards, as-
sessments will also be scaled
based on the Partnership for
Assessment of Readiness for
College and Careers. These
more demanding standards are
designed to help students
acquire the skills they need for
tomorrow's jobs and to be more
competitive internationally.
WRITING
The only exception to the
higher standards was the FCAT
Writing portion. Due to the
unacceptable scores in the past.
the Florida DOE has lowered
the standards. On May 10 the
Department of Education held
an emergency meeting to deter-
mine how to move forward with
calculating school grades. The


writing portion of the FCAT
had received a lot of attention
due to its reflection in a
school's overall grade.
For fourth grade, the overall
percentage passed within the
state was an 81, Hardee schools
scored a 71, positioning them-
selves lower than par. Individ-
ually, the schools continued
scoring lower. Hilltop received
a 67, Bowling Green made a 72.
Zolfo Springs earned a 62,
Wauchula Elementary made a
77 and North Wauchula did the
best out of the district with their
score of 80, putting them one
point lower than the state.
The state set the standard for
eighth grade at 78; the local dis-
trict was 17 points lower with
its 61. The tenth graders fol-
lowed suit, scoring 14 points
lower than the state's 84.
The Education Commission-
er supports the decision to
recalibrate the school grades. "I
believe it is appropriate to
expect that our students know
how to spell and how to proper-
ly punctuate a sentence," began
Gerard Robinson. "Before this
year. those basics were not
given enough attention, nor did
we give enough attention to
communicating these basic
expectations to our teachers."

residents may not have to worry
about storm surge, but are well
aware of the dangers of high
winds and flooding, followed
by weeks without electricity.
The Hardee County Emer-
gency Management office is
ready to help and wants citizens
to be ready too. For more infor-
mation, go to www.hardeecoun-
ty.net/eoc or call 773-6373.
It's important to have a bat-
tery-operated NOAA radio to
keep aware of the progress of
storms, especially if electricity
is lost. Some is turned off as a
storm approaches to lessen
effect of falling trees and spark-
ing outages.
Hurricane warnings have sev-
eral stages of intensity as a
storm intensifies. A hurricane
watch indicates a possible
storm within 48 hours. The final
hurricane warning indicates the
storm will make landfill within
36 hours, and it is then citizens
should make the final prepara-
tions for it.
For instance, as Hurricane
Charley approached and was
predicted to come up the Gulf
along the west coast of Florida,
it veered sharply and came
directly north up the Peace
River with winds at 150 mph
and higher gusts.
There are five categories of
storms on the Saffir-Simpson
wind scale: Category 1, winds
74-95 mph; Category 2, 96-110
mph; Category 3,111-130 mph;
Category 4, 131-155 mph; and
Category 4, winds over 155
mph.
PERSONAL
PREPAREDNESS
There are several steps for
people to handle hurricane
threats or the tornadoes which
they spawn.
Preparation should begin sev-
eral weeks ahead of time. Stock
up on batteries for your smoke
detector, heavy duty flashlights
and NOAA radio. Get duct tape,
hammers, nails and screws,
even mosquito repellent.
Each time you shop, pick up a
few items you'll need for your
hurricane pantry, such things as
paper plates, cups and plastic
utensils, canned goods and bot-
tled water (you'll need a gallon
per day per person and pet for
the length of the electricity out-
age).
Have a hand-operated can
opener, some ready-to-eat
soups, jellies, jams, peanut but-
ter and crackers to eat while
you're hunkering down for the
storm.
Do you have an adequate
supply of medicines? What
about first aid supplies, gauie
and bandages, first-aid tape.
sanitary wipes or hand cleanser.
tweezers, scissors, and a supply
of paper towels. Get a supply of
garbage bags to take care of
inside and outside debris.
Does your family know your
emergency preparedness plan?
Be sure everyone knows where
to meet if you get separated. or
what relative you may stay with
in a safer location. After the
hurricane, sometimes it's hard
to locate people. Make sure you
tell everyone where you will be.

If you're staying home to
weather the storm, be sure
there's an inside room safe from
flying debris or broken glass.
Get your sleeping bags or blan-
kets ready. Have your important
documents, like home insur-
ance, in a water-proof contain-
er.
Do you' know where your
nearest shelter is? The primary
shelter is one of five buildings
at Hilltop Elementary/Junior
High, with a combined capacity
of 3,152 people, said Robert
Krahl, schools director of edu-
cational facilities.
A secondary shelter is at
Bowling Green Elementary,
which has a capacity of 750
people, and, if needed for the
southern area, Zolfo Springs
Elementary, with a capacity of
800 people. Hilltop and
Bowling Green have emer-
gency generators.
There is a special needs shel-
ter at South Florida Community
College on U.S. 17 North,
Bowling Green, but pre,
arrangements are needed for
those with health problems
requiring oxygen or some other
type of assistance.
Pre-arrangement is also need-


ed to utilize the pet shelter.
Contact the EOC at, 773-6373
for more information on that.
WHEN TO ACT
When the hurricane watch is
issued, be sure to gas up your
car, and get cash' out of the bank
or ATM in case electricity is out
and you can't get it later.
Be sure you have at least a
two-week supply of medica-
tions. Work with your pharma-
cist on this.
'Realize that when winds
reach 40 mph, emergency vehi-
cles must get off the roads. You
should too. Plan well in
advance to do your errands, or
to move your people or pets to
special shelters. Get your fami-
ly together and stay safe during
the storm. Fill the tub and large
pots with water.
Anyone in a low-lying area or
mobile home/frame home can
expect to be told to evacuate.
They can't protect you from
hazards of location.
If you go to a shelter, bring
pillows and blankets, games
and toys for children, puzzles
and books for -adults, sleeping
bags or lawn chairs, a personal
phone book of family numbers,
personal hygiene and medica-

and non-perishable snack items.
AFTER THE STORM
When the worst is over and
the all clear is sounded, cau-
tiously venture out to, assess
damages. Don't let children out
until you check for downed
wires, broken glass, tree limbs
or anything else on which they
can be injured.
If you're o.k., check on your
neighbors, friends and relatives,
especially the elderly ones
which may need a hand clean-
ing up.
As you .go farther afield,
watch for blocked roads and
downed wires,
Place your cleanup ,in four
piles: household garbage (rotten
food); yard debris (tree limbs,
palm fronds and branches);
construction materials (wall-
board, insulation, glass, con-
crete blocks); and broken appli-
ances.
If water has gotten into the
home, scrub all walls and sut-
faces to avoid mold and
mildew.
Continue to listen to your
local radio for post-storm

Waste Company Still

Planning For Hardee


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"Please tell them we want to
make a difference."
Waste Generated Products
president Rick Fishman empha-
sized in a recent e-mail that
"when and if the time comes to
locate a WGP facility in Hardee
County, that part of our core
values is to make a positive
impact and a difference in the
community we serve."
Fishman replied to recent
inquiries about the status of his
company's plans to put a com-
bined PIM (Powder Impression
Molding) and gasification plant
in Hardee County.
A recent letter to Hardee
County manager Lex Albritton
confirms the company is
"working diligently" to accom-
plish a financially harmless
caveat and finalizing private
financing.
"We have notified the County
that we would not be asking the
County to co-sign a note to help
with the financing component
of this facility." He adds that
there are multiple .projects,
including Hardee County, f6r
which funding is 60 to 90 days
away.
"It bears repeating, if we can-
not be a positive asset to the
community without being a
financial burden or risk to the
community, then we would not
-locate a facility in Hardee
County," stated Fishmah.
He stressed that his company
did not authorize the construc-
tion advertisement in a March 6
industry journal. Fishman said
"WGP has not now nor anytime
in the past initiated, given any
input, consent or permission to
put out an RFQ (Request For"
Quotes) for construction on this
project or any other power plant
in Hardee County."
Fishman said the construction
journal, which costs $144.50
per month to view projects in
the southwest Florida, obtained
its information through a public
forum and uninformed source.
He said the fee-based internet
information site acquired the
public information, extrapolat-
ed it into its format and put the
information online.
The thorough construction
project report numbered
S814266 by a "confidential
licensee," seeks bids by invita-


tion only for new power plant
construction and lists 15 items
from masonry to interior light-
ing and switches for the "new
construction, power plant."
Fishman added that when
asked to remove the premature
and incomplete information
from the site, "a Construction
Journal employee said they
would not remove it because it
is just information provided as a
service to the construction
industry, although acknowledg-
ing that the information was
obtained from a news article
and is still pending verification.
"In conclusion, WGP is mov-
ing forward toward enhancing
the waste remediation issues
and opportunities that all com-
munities share to one degree or
another. We will proceed and
progress with our financing,
construction and operation of
these facilities using our propri-
etary and evolutionary tech-
nologies."
The plan presented to the
County Commission last
October would be two-fold.
Both the PIM and gasification
plants would be self-enclosed,
with no smokestacks and no
adverse effects on ground,
water or air. The company is
not asking for a tax abatement
and would pay taxes on its
plants and improvements.
It would take all kinds of
garbage, solid waste, hazardous
materials, old tires and con-
struction materials, which
would be placed in a hopper to
be sorted, pulverized and sent
by conveyor to the appropriate
portion of the operation, pro-
ducing products such as pipes,
flooring, siding, carbon black,
scrap steel, truck beds and other
auto parts as well as diesel or
high octane gas and electricity,
some available to the county at
prices lower than it now pays.
The plan would he to take the
county's daily garbage to
process and gradually also work
on the backlog of garbage
stacked at the landfill, clean the
dirt and return it, eliminating
the need for the 30-year clean-
up and monitoring costs, the
solid waste assessments and
disposal fees.
The plan is to begin permit
applications and he operable in
two to three years and employ
150 to 200 people.

Freeman. Newman noted re-
quirement No. 12, that the
homemaker complete the proj-
ect within six months and main-
tain those improvements for at
least five years.
For the commercial grants.
there are also four categories:
(1). exterior enhancements, im-
provements and renovations, to
include signs, awnings/can-
opies, storefront, walls, fencing,
landscaping, removing old
wood, aluminum or stucco.
replacing boarded windows or
storefront lighting; (2) design
assistance to plan a facade con-
cept or design by a licensed
professional; (3) matching revi-
talization -- roof and chimney
repairs, electrical work and
interior improvements; and (4)
commercial life safety required
by inspectors, such as sprin-
klers or fire alarm systems.
All four grant types are limit-
ed to one-half of the !'io.it
cost up to specific limits.
Again, commissioners were
disappointed in the kinds and
amounts of grants already pro-
vided,
They decided that there
should only be one grant per
category during a five-year
period, with a forgivable lien if
the building owner maintains
the improvements on the prop-
erty for at least five years. If the
business is sold, a prorated
amount should be repaid.
Some other communities pro-
hibit funds used on interior
work. roof repair or replace-
ment. seasonal landscaping,
inventory or equipment, non-
fixed improvements.
Commissioners agreed with
most of the changes Newman
suggested, but plan to revisit the
subject again within a few
months.

researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ..

75 YEARS AGO
A telegram from W.C. King
on Wednesday stated that the
Florida House of Representa-
tives had just passed unani-
rnously the Hardee county
experiment station bill. No
details were available at the
time of going to press but in
spite of the late hour it is hoped
by the local sponsors of this
bill, the Hardee County Cattle-
men's Association, that this can
be gotten through the Senate
and become a law before
adjournment. If this station is
established it will be the most
forward step taken for the range
livestock interests of Florida
since the state was established.

On last Friday afternoon the
junior class entertained the
graduates with a coronation pic-
nic at Eagle Lake, near Winter
Haven, about 160 students
attending the event, plus moth-
'ers and teachers. A motorcade
of 28 cars left the high school
building and was led by Prof.
J.K. Chapman. The afternoon
was enjoyed by swimming, the
seniors forfeiting a proposed
'diamondball game to the
juniors.

Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Conroy.
well-known Hardee county res-
idents who reside about three
and a half miles south of
Wauchula on the Wauchula-
Zolfo Springs road, observed
their golden wedding anniver-
sary Tuesday with a picnic at
Zolfo Springs with about 100
long-acquainted friends and rel-
atives enjoying the occasion.

With summer in its early
stages, it appears as though
Wauchulans will turn their eyes
to sports for an entertaining
past-time, and with several
lines of sports on the table
locals will have plenty to do
throughout the summer if they
keep up with the various activi-
ties.

50 YEARS AGO
Construction bids on the pro-
posed band building for Hardee
High School have collme inll
about $10.000 higher than
anticipated, leaving the school
board and thlie Band Boosters
with an attractive plan but not
enough money to build it. The
board has abled tihe bids for
further study and is debating
whether to drop the whole pro-
ject for now or try to cut down
on the si/. and type of building
to be constructed.

explored this week by princi-

in an informal give and take
session. Leading the discussion

of the Wauchula Elementary
School, will present the diplo-
mas. Mrs. O.B. Stansell is in
charge of the program.

25 YEARS AGO
Hardee, County commission-
ers have unanimously accepted
a proposal by Mobil Mining &
Minerals Co. to donate to the
county the sanitary landfill
property east of Wauchula. Jim
Kelly of Mobil made the pro-
posal to commissioners last
Thursday. Mobil will donate
approximately 97.5 acres at the
landfill by special warranty
deed. The donation does not
include a right-of-way into the
landfill, but an easement for the
entrance road will be worked
out between the county and
Mobil.

After three workshop meet-
ings on the volatile subject of
fire protection, Hardee County
commissioners have agreed to
offer the city of Wauchula a
one-year contract for fire ser-
vice on a per-call basis. And in
the meantime, development of a

A Tired Young Mother

What should I do when I try to hurry and get through
Put the children all to bed:
And think, now that worry's out of my head?
But is it, do you know?
Just as I think they are all asleep,
It's "Mama I want a drink" from little John in his room.
Then "Mama, I'm not sleepy. I took a nap at noon,"
this from Margaret who's fussing in the gloom. While
"Mama" patiently says, "Hush honey. Please be quiet,
when I get Mary down to bed Ill come read to you."
I was rocking to sleep the third.
Then gently lying her down hoping she'll stay asleep.
Softly I crept out, but suddenly I heard "Mama,"
loud and clearly.
"Oh dear, Oh dear," I half sobbed.
"I wish someone else had this job.
Then I could have gone to town with Jack
And they'd all be asleep when I came back."
But I take her up and go into the other room,
Joining the others who are fretting in the gloom.
I think maybe they will play and I can write.
Soon they'll go to sleep and all will be quiet
And I can read and enjoy a little peace.
They chatter and jabber from the oldest to the least,
until I can't think of a thing.
I might as well try to amuse them again.
But I'll keep trying to lose them out of my mind.
Tho' they get worse and worse until I find
They've had their fill of shouting and laughter.
It's the same old job of coaxing them to sleep again.
This time maybe it will be successful.
What does it matter tho'?
It's getting late. To bed I must go.
In the morning I must get up early
To get their Daddy to work in a hurry
While they (the little rascals)
Sleep just as late as they want to.
This I will gladly let them do,,
Then I can get a start in my housework right.
And think, "Oh dear, I hope they do better tonight."

Dear Editor:
Many times people find it
easy to speculate or perceive
things that simply are not reali-
ty. We are guilty of it at one
time or another.
Our Mama has asked forever
that we never put her in a nurs-
ing home. We always hoped
that we would not have to do so
and certainly had no thought of
choosing Hardee Manor.
God had a different plan
though. The time came when
our family could not provide 24
hour care for Mama even
though we desperately wanted
to do so. The end of our story
regarding Hardee Manor Care
Center is that we made the

We were so happy and
amazed with the quality of care
she received. Was it a perfect
place ... absolutely not, but nei-
ther are our homes. What they
gave was professional nursing,
therapy, very good nutrition and
lots of hugs and smiles each
day. We were allowed to sit
with her anytime, help with her
care and feeding, and make pre-
cious memories over the last
three months of her life.-
She had a lifetime friend as a
roommate, Donia Hughes, who
kept a watchful eye on her
when no one was around. Our
family trusted Hardee Manor's
staff and they did not let us
down. We each thank them for
being who they are.
Unless you have experienced
a care facility such as this, you
have no idea what a day in their
life is all about. We thank God
that Hardee County has such a
fine place!
Thank you to everyone that
reached out to us during

deeply appreciate all the

cards. flowers, food and love.
May the Lord bless each of
you!

"Thanks Just Isn't Enough ..."


Cemetery Watchman


By LOCKIE GARY
Special To The Herald-Advocate
My friend Kevin 'and I are
volunteers at a national ceme-
tery in Oklahoma and put in a
few days a month in a 'slightly
larger' uniform.
Today had been a long, long
day and I just wanted to get the
day over with ,and go down to
Smokey's and have a cold one.
Sneaking a look at my watch, I'
saw the time, 16:55. Five min-
utes to go before the cemetery
gates are closed for the day. Full
dress was hot in the August sun
Oklahoma summertime was as
bad as ever the heat *and
humidity at the same level -
both too high.
I saw the car pull into the
drive, '69 or '70 model Cadillac
Deville, looked factory-new. It
pulled into the parking lot at a
snail's. pace. An old woman got
out so slow I thought she was
paralyzed; she had a cane and a
sheaf of flowers about four or
five bunches as best I could tell.
I couldn't help myself. The
thought came unwanted, and left
a slightly bitter taste: "She's
going to spend an hour, and for
this old soldier, my hip hurts
like hell and I'm ready to get out
of here right now!" But for this
day, my duty was to assist any-
one coming in.
Kevin would lock the "In"
gate and if I could hurry the old
biddy along, we might make it
to Smokey's in time.
I broke post attention. My hip
made gritty noises when I took
the first step and the pain went
up a notch. I must have made a
real military sight: middle-aged
man with a small pot gut and
half a limp, in Marine full-dress
uniform, which had lost its razor
crease about thirty minutes after
1 began the watch at the ceme-
tery.
I stopped in front of her,
halfway up the walk. She looked
up at me with an old woman's
squint.
"Ma'am, may I assist you in
any way?"
She took long enough to
answer.
"Yes, son. Can you carry
these flowers? I seem to be
moving a tad slow these days."
"My pleasure, ma'am." (Well,
it wasn't too much of a lie.)
She looked again. "Marine,


The Arc.


Ridge Area
For people with Intellectual
and developmental disabtities



WFW0 Im-


where were you stationed?"
"Vietnam, ma'am. Ground-
pounder. '69 to '71." ,
She looked at me closer.
"Wounded in action, I see. Well
done, Marine. I'll be as quick as
I can."
I lied a little bigger: "No
hurry, ma'am."
She smiled and winked at me.
"Son, I'm 85-years-old and I
can tell a lie from a long way
off. Let's get this done. Might
be the last time I can do this.
My name's Joanne Wieserman,
and I've a few Marines I'd like
to see one more time."
"Yes, ma 'am. At your serv-
ice."
She headed for the World
War I section, stopping at a
stone. She picked one of the
flower bunches out of my arm
and laid it on top of the stone.
She murmured something I
couldn't quite make out. The
name on the marble was Donald
S. Davidson, USMC: France
1918.
She turned away and made a
straight line for the World War
II section, stopping at one
stone. I saw a tear slowly track-
ing its way down her cheek. She
put a bunch on a stone; the
name was Stephen X. David-
son, USMC, 1943.
She went up the row a ways
and laid another bunch on a
stone, Stanley J. Wieserman,
USMC, 1944.
She paused for a second and
more tears flowed. "Two more,
son, and we'll be done."
I almost didn't say anything,
but, "Yes, ma'am. Take your
time."
She looked confused..
"Where's the Vietnam section,
son? I seem to have lost my
way."
I pointed with my chin. "That
way, ma'am."
"Oh!" she chuckled quietly.
'Son, me and old age ain't too
friendly."
She headed down the walk I'd
pointed at. She stopped at a
couple of stones before she
found the ones she wanted. She
placed a bunch on Larry
Wieserman, USMC, 1968, and
the last on Darrel Wieserman,
USMC, 1970. She stood there
and murmured a fPy words, I ;
still couldn't make out and more I
tears flowed.


/


"OK, son, I'm finished. Get
me back to my car and you can
go home."
"Yes, ma'am. If I may ask,
were those your kinfolk?"
She paused. "Yes, Donald
Davidson was my father,
Stephen was my uncle, Stanley
was my husband, Larry and
Darrel were our sons. All killed
in action, all Marines."
She stopped! Whether she
had finished, or couldn't finish,
I don't know. She made her way
to her car, slowly and painfully.
I waited for a polite distance to
come between us and then dou-
ble-timed it over to Kevin, wait-
ing by the car.
"Get to the 'Out' gate quick. I
have something I've got to do."
Kevin started to say some-
thing, but saw the look I gave
him. He broke the rules to get
us there down the service road
fast. We beat her. She hadn't
made it around the rotunda yet.
"Kevin, stand at attention
next to the gatepost. Follow my
lead." I humped it across the
drive to the other post
When the Cadillac came put-
tering around from the hedges
and began the short straight tra-
verse to the gate, I called in my
best gunny's voice: "TehenHut!
Present Haaaarms!"
I have to hand it to Kevin; he,
never blinked an eye full'
dress attention and a salute that
would make his DI proud.
She drove through that gate
with two old worn-out soldiers
giving her a send-off she de-
served, for service rendered to
her country, and for knowing
duty, honor and sacrifice far
beyond the realm of most.
I am not sure, but I think I
saw a salute returned from that
Cadillac.
Instead of "The End," just
think of "Taps."
As a final thought on my part,
let me share a favorite prayer:
"Lord, keep our servicemen and
women safe, whether they serve
at "home or overseas. Hold them
in your loving hands and pro-
tect them as they protect us."
Let's all keep those currently
serving and those who have
gone before in our thoughts.
They are the reason for the
many freedoms we enjoy.
"In God we trust."

The Protective Hand of God

As the people of this world grow more and more to reflect those that
lived in the days of Noah and those that resided in Sodom, it is
inevitable that the protecting hand of God is being steadily withdrawn.
With the desire of most, being bent on immorality and vice, we should
expect very soon to see more clearly the results, for it will appear that
our world is falling apart. We must remember that it is sin (disobedience
to God) that caused it and not "obedience" because Satan will cast the
blame on people that follow Christ as though they are at fault. No less
worse than the cause of all the problems is" the reaction of fallen
humanity trying to fix the problem by himself. That man made solution
is spoken about in Revelation 13 of the Holy Bible. In order for the
proclamations in Revelation 13 to be achieved there must be a reversal
in the restraints of various codes restricting organized religious entitles
from using civil government to enforce spiritual matters such as worship
or obedience to God. Today, the trend of many churches that will come
to fulfill these prophecies and form an "image" or direct likeness of
another religio-political union that prevailed during the dark ages is fast
being realized. It is Satan that uses the governments of the world to
coerce people to follow him. The Creator Jesus Christ (John 1:3)
desires obedience born out of love, and true love must be by choice,
I not by force or coercion. Civil governments are for civil relations, not
religious conformity. You must be sure you "are "really" holding on to
Christ and not to another.

Wildcats Whip Yellow Jackets


Preacher Speaks On Forgiveness


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald.Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats defeat-
ed the Bartow Yellow Jackets
Friday night at Wildcat Stadium
to close otut a successful month
of spring football.
Hardee relied on a strong
running game, and an even
stronger run defense, holding
Bartow to a negative 25 yards
rushing.
Bartow got the ball first to
start the game at its 20-yard line
as per spring game rules which
does not have any kickoffs.
Punts are not rushed and are
downed where the ball lands.,
Rising junior Keyon Brown
quickly made his presence
known by throwing Tyler
Dunlap for a four- yard loss on
the first rush of the game.
After an incomplete pass,
Brown sacked quarterback
Dimitri Leverett for a 15-yard
loss, nearly causing a safety and
forcing a punt.
Hardee took over at the
Bartow 38-yard line and picked
up a first down on a Keyonte
Holley run before turning the
ball over on downs at the 15.
The defense forced Bartow
into a quick three and out and
Hardee took over at its 49.
Rising senior Aaron Barker
took a handoff around the left
end untouched for a 51-yard
touchdown to start the drive but
a holding penalty wiped the
score off the board.
Three plays later Barker
went around the right end, this
time from 35 yards out, for the
touchdown.
The Octavio Alvarez PAT
was good and Hardee led 7-0
with 3:59 left in the first quar-
ter.
Bartow answered by going.
on an I1 -play, 80-yard drive
that ended with a Leverett
touchdown run from 11 yards
out.
Both teams traded quick
fumbles and then punts before
Hardee got the ball back at its
42-yard line with a few minutes
left before the half.
Hardee picked up two first
downs before Joshua "J.J."
Almarez had what appeared to
be a 5-yard gain before he spun
free from the tackle and picked
up another 20 yards and almost
scored, taking the ball down to
the 2.
Two plays later-quarterback
Jake Bolin rolled right but kept
the ball himself and plunged
across the goal line for the
touchdown with 30 seconds left
in the half.
The Alvarez PAT made it 14-
7. .
During halftime both teams
let their younger and less expe-
rienced players scrimmage.
A pair of Wildcats intercept-
ed passes and returned them for
touchdowns.

of a pass and returned it 60
yards for a touchdown.
A few minutes later Armando
Alamia intercepted a pass and
returned it 50 yards for the
score.
Hardee got the ball to start
the second half and immediate-
ly gave it back to Bartow deep
in Hardee territory when Barker
lost a fumble on the first play of
the half.
The defense held tough and
forced Bartow to settle for a 40-
yard field goaltby Alex Montes.
Runs by Holley picked up a
first down and got the Wildcat
offense moving.
Quarterback Kris Johnson
then found Alvarez open for a
nice completion before he lost
the ball and Bartow recovered
at the Hardee 42.
Bartow then took advantage
of Hardee's inexperienced sec-
ondary when Leverett threw a
dart deep down the left sideline
and found Jeremy Williams in
stride for the touchdown.
The Montes PAT put Bartow
up 17-14 with 7:07 left in the
third quarter.
Hardee took over and Barker
again lost the ball and Bartow's
Johnathan Battle picked it up
and returned it for a touchdown.
But, a blocking in the back
penalty negated the touchdown
and gave Bartow the ball at the
Hardee 37.
The Yellow Jackets could not
get a first down after Leverett
was sacked on third down by
Brown, who had four sacks on
the night.
Both teams then punted on
their next two possessions.
Hardee then took over at its
20-yard line with 8:30 left in
the game.
Barker made runs of 8 and 13
yards to pick up a first down
and get the offense moving.
Johnson then completed a 7-
yard first down pass to Alvarez

and another to Holley that went
for 23 yards and moved the ball
across midfield.
Barker then took a handoff
over the left end and made sev-
eral shifts and shook a would be
tackler before finding the end
zone for the go-ahead 31-yard
touchdown.
Alvarez made the PAT and
Hardee led 21-17 with 3:55 to
go.
The Wildcat defense then
went to work rushing the nifty
Leverett as he tried bringing
Bartow back.
The defense sacked him
three times on the final drive.
The first was by Jesus
Zuniga.
A few plays later Zuniga
teamed up with James Greene
and Brown for another sack.
The game ended when
Zuniga and Lucious Everett
combined to take down Le-
verett.
After the game, Head Coach
Buddy Martin told his team he
was very proud of them and
they gained some great momen-
tum going into summer work-
outs.
"You have been pushed hard
this last month and you re-
sponded very well," he told
them after the game.
The team will spend the sum-
mer lifting weights on Monday,
Wednesday and Friday.
Tuesday will have the line-
men doing individual drills and
the skill position players will
compete with other teams in 7-
on-7 passing drills.
The team will return to the
University of South Florida 7-
on-7 tournament in July.
"This team is going to get
better. Commit yourselves to
getting better," Martin told his
players. "We are going to be a
great football team."


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
Rev. Robert E. Douglas of
Seaford, Delaware, was guest
speaker Sunday, May 20, at the
Gospel Tabernacle in Wau-
chula.
Last year Rev. Douglas, now
66, was speaking at South
Florida Community College' in
Avon Park. He saw a road sign
for Wauchula, where he was
born. His mother gave him up
for adoption as a baby. His birth
name was Curtis Lee Stanford.
He wanted to find out about his
birth parents.
A news article in The Herald-
Advocate resulted in a phone
call from his sister, Eunice
Howell. He met his sister and
his mother, Margaret King, both
of Wauchula. His mother died
of cancer a few months after
their reunion. His father had
already passed away.
On Sunday his sermon topic
was forgiveness, "a tough issue.
Unforgiveness can be a stum-
bling block due to life circum-
stances."
Douglas was a police officer
for about 20 years before going
into the ministry. He recently
started a church named
Compassionate Shepherd
Ministries in Laura, Del.
Jesus on the cross asked his
father God to forgive those who
were crucifying him, saying
they know not what they do.
"Jesus came to save and to
serve."
Douglas said Jesus was asked
if a person should forgive
someone seven times. His
answer was 70 times 7. The
Bible says vengeance belongs
to God.
"Jesus did what his Father
told him to do. He supplies all
our needs but not all our
wants."
Douglas talked about the
return of the prodigal son, who
received his inheritance early,
wasted it, and returned home to
his father.
"You may have the best and

Robert E. Douglas Jr., his sister Eunice Howell and her
husband David Howell who live in Wauchula.


not be happy."
Douglas, executive director
of the National POLICE
Suicide Foundation, said
36,000 Americans committed
suicide last year but said the
actual number may be more
than twice that figure. Many
dealt with a lack of forgiveness.
Unforgiveness can devastate
you. The prodigal son spent his
money and then became hun-
gry."
Rev. Douglas said his talent,
belonging to God, is communi-
cation. "We can lose talents if
we don't use them the way God
wants."
He said self-evaluation is
*hard.
"Nobody forced you to
smoke, to drink or to use drugs.
You make a conscious decision.
"Do what God wants you to
do with your life. God gives
you your life.
"We trip over our transgres-
sions. The father eagerly for-
gave and welcomed back the
prodigal son. We will have dif-
ficult circumstances. God will
never leave or forsake us.


"It has to be God's. way. We
need to be about God's work,
his master plan. We live in a
failing, stinking world. Get
your life straightened out.
Emptiness is the lack of the
presence of Jesus and the Holy
Spirit in your life.
"Forgiveness is a big thing.
Our children will walk away.
God will tell us who we are.
Have compassion on those who'
have wronged us. Remember to
forgive 70 times 7."
Douglas said a Wyoming
Highway Patrol trooper pulled
over a vehicle and was shot four
times and left for dead. He lost
an eye but lived and later visit-
ed the shooter who was .serving
a life term in prison, saying he
forgave him.
'"Make a choice. If you want
to have a relationship with
Jesus, get rid of resentment and
unforgiveness. God has a mas-
ter plan for our life."
Rev. Howze read the 23rd
Psalm and added, "When we
die to self, we begin to live f6r

Summer Safety


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
As the song by Alice Cooper
would say "school's out for
summer!"
Almost, anyway, now that
summer is just around the cor-
ner, more and more children
will want to hang out with
friends, go to the skate park or
ride bicycles around the block.
This is also a time for parents
to keep a more watchful eye on
their children. Keeping their
kids safe is a parent's number
one priority.
Now. the Wauchula Police
Department has come up with a
fun way to teach kids how to be
safe during the summer months.
This Saturday. WPD will be-
hosting the very first Child
Summer Safety Event.
The event was created to
give children and parents a few
tips on keeping safe during the,
summer.
During the event there will
be a few demonstrations. One
of those is bicycle rodeo. This
event helps teach the proper
way to ride a bicycle. Along'
with the rodeo, bicycle helmets,
will be given away to add to a
safer way of riding a bike.
Hardee County Fire Rescue
staff will also be there to teach
everyone about Fire Safety.
Another very useful tool for
parents will be the child identi-
fication kits that will be made
for every child.
This ID kit has important
information about your child. It
contains a CD with a picture of

Tooth decay is said to be
the second-most common
disease in the U.S. after the
common cold.


your children, data such as their
height, weight, and date of
birth, and information about
their friends and places they
like to go. The kit also includes
swabs with the child's DNA and
a sample of their fingerprints.
After the information is put
on the CD, the information is
completely wiped off of the
hard drive, so none of your
child's information stays on the
computer.
There will also be a chance
to register your child's bike
when you take it to the event.
This is a good precaution to
take in case the bicycle is
stolen. If that were to happen,
officers can run the serial num-
ber and will be able to locate the
missing bike.
To add to the fun and excite-
ment. State Farm Insurance will
be giving away two bicycles.
There will also be a bounce
house and free food to enjoy.
Different organizations, that
are helping make this organiza-
tion possible are Hardee County
YMCA, Hardee County Health
Department, Hardee County
Fire Rescue, Accepted Masons
of Florida, Department of
Transportation, Giovanni's, and
Hardee County Community
Traffic Safety Team.
The Child Summer Safety
Event will be located at 321 S.
10th Ave, the YMCA teen
house. If you would like to
know more about this event,
you may contact Officer Amy
Drake at 773-3265.

When you jump for joy, be-
ware that no one moves the
ground from beneath your
feet.

Santarlas(R) for Hardee Sheriff









ATTENTION: Residents of Hardee County!


During the 2008 campaign, I learned about the extreme deficiency in the level of law enforcement protection
for our children at the school campuses. I reported to you the absence of properly trained School Resource
Officers (SRO's).

NEARLY 4 YEARS HAVE PASSED NOW WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO IMPROVE THE LEVEL OF
PROTECTION FOR OUR CHILDREN? HERE IS THE ANSWER:

The Hardee County Sheriffs Office has only (1) one properly certified School Resource Officer to cover
our schools and protect the children. What happens when this SRO takes a sick day, goes on vacation, or
has to appear in court? Who covers the schools.......another deputy lacking the specialized training?

The sheriffs website lists three deputies as being school resource officers. However, the sheriff fails to tell you
that only (1) one of them is properly certified. Look at my website under the "News" tab and read the e-mail
from the sheriffs office. They admit that two of the sheriffs SRO's are not properly certified.

Our children are our most precious gift! Why doesn't Sheriff Arnold Lanier understand this? My deputies will
receive the specialized training necessary to become certified school resource officers. I will staff an S.R.O. at
EACH public school and work with the school board to better protect our children and teachers.

August 14th, 2012 is your opportunity to change the mindset at the sheriffs office. VOTE FOR ME. I am
serious about protecting our children and our teachers while they are at school! I have received the highest
level of School Resource Officer training in the State of Florida.

Help me to help you! Vote for Thomas Santarlas(R) for Hardee Sheriff.

Week Ending: May 27, 2012
Weather Summary: It was a dry week across the Panhandle,
but showers across parts of central and southern Florida improved
crops and pastures. About one-fourth of the 36 statewide Florida
Automated Weather Network (FAWN) stations recorded an inch or
more of cumulative precipitation. One-half of the stations reported
less than a third of an inch of rainfall. The heaviest amounts,of pre-
cipitation fell at Fort Lauderdale (2.51 inches), Fort Pierce (1.84
inches), Hastings (1.22 inches), and Homestead, (1.22 inches).
Producers were watching the skies for more rain as Tropical Storm
Beryl was forecasted to bring more rainfall to the Atlantic coast
starting on Memorial Day. According to the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, temperatures averaged slightly above
normal during the-week at most major cities. Highs were mostly in
the 90s with temperatures reaching 97 degrees in Marianna and
Bronson.

Field Crops: It was very dry in Santa Rosa County and the
planting of cotton and peanuts stopped as producers waited for
rainfall to replenish the'soil moisture in fields. In Jackson County,
early week showers helped improve dry soil conditions and
allowed producers to plant cotton and peanut fields. More rainfall
was needed to get crops off to a fast start. In Leon County, the cot-
ton planting was virtually finished. Producers in Okaloosa County
noted that some early corn appeared distressed by the dry weather.

In Leon and Walton counties, producers were finishing harvesting
the wheat and oat crops. Cotton and peanut producers nearly fin-
ished planting those crops. In Okeechobee County., producers were
chopping silage. Peanut producers continued to make good
progress planting fields. At week's end, 87 percent were planted
compared to 69 percent last year and the 5-year average progress
of 68 percent.

Fruits & Vegetables: USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service
reported market movement of sweet corn, cucumbers, eggplant,
okra, bell peppers, and tomatoes. The supply of cucumbers and bell
peppers were light. The potato harvest was underway in Putnam
County. In Levy County, the watermelon harvest was about 60 per-
cent completed. The blueberry harvest came to a conclusion in
Dixie County.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, showers, primarily across
central and southern Florida, helped maintain pasture growth.
Statewide, pasture conditions ranged from very poor to good. The
condition declined from the previous week, with 65 percent rated
fair or good compared to 72 percent the previous week. Drought
was the main reason for limiting grass growth. Cattle producers
looked for Tropical Storm Beryl to send some rain to help revive
pastures. The condition of the cattle ranged from very poor to
excellent with most in fair or good condition. Producers were

warned of pigeon fever outbreaks in both cattle and houses and rec-
ommendations were to make efforts to control flies and minimize
the disease. In the Panhandle, pastures were in very poor to good
condition with most in fair to good condition. The cattle conditions
ranged from poor to excellent with most rated as good. In the
northern area, most pastures were in fair to good condition. The
cattle ranged from poor to excellent condition, but most were in
good condition. In the central area, the pastures were in very poor
to good condition with most rated good. In the southwestern areas
of Florida, the pasture conditions ranged from very poor to good
with most rated as fair. Cattle were rated as poor to good with most
as fair. Producers in Okeechobee County were chopping silage.
Pastures looked much better after recent rains.

Citrus: Daily high temperatures rose a little, reaching the
lower to mid 90s across the citrus region. All but three FAWN sta-
tions recorded some precipitation this week, with Ft. Peirce receiv-
ing the most at 1.84 inches. Five stations received an inch or more
of rain and nine had at least a half inch. Drought conditions
improved slightly, per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated May
22, 2012, as a return to the more normal summer pattern of rainfall
continued. Late orange harvesting and young tree care were the pri-
mary grove activities at this time. Of the 15 processing plants still
open, all but two were planning on being finished by the end of the
month,

In 2009 a report by the U.S.
Food & Drug Administration
linked the candy-flavored
tobacco to teens. "These kinds
of flavors make tobacco prod-
ucts especially appealing to
kids, and can lead to a lifetime
of tobacco addiction." the
report said.
The Tobacco' Prevention
Team has educated local offi-
cials that flavored tobacco is a
"starter" product favored by
teens, and noted that 90 percent
of smokers begin in their teens.
Even though the legal age to
purchase tobacco products is 18
years of age, these products
have appealing flavors includ-
ing blueberry, peach, grape,
strawberry and chocolate.
These flavors mask the bad
taste of tobacco, so kids are
much more likely than adults to
use flavored tobacco products,

and these flavored products
cause the same harmful effects

Many times kids can be in the

One-Room To Huge


School Via Desegregation


By TATVANNA FAULK
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Lester Fulse, my grandpa, was born
Oct.'10, 1950, in Bowling Green. Not in
a hospital but in a house.
Growing up, all he wanted to be was
a professional football player. Football
was his life. But at the age of 19 he was
expecting a
little girl, so r
that changed 0L l
everything.
My mrom,
the oldest, was named by her mom. My
grandpa didn't get to name any of his
kids.
According to my grandpa, he was a
troublemaker. His parents were always
getting onto him.
He worked, picking strawberries.
They would pull out any kid from
school just to go pick. Back then they
just called it "Bowling Green School."
It was a one-room school. See, my
grandpa lived in hard times of segrega-
tion, places he wasn't allowed to go,
restaurants he wasn't allowed to eat in,
all because he's black.
Well, my grandpa is African-
American and Indian and his wife is
Guyanesse, straight from South
America. He met her in New York. He
was walking with a friend and heard my
grandma say, "I like that one, in the red,
white and blue shirt." It was as simple
as that. He turned around and went to
talk to her. The day he got married was
the best day of his life, the best thing
that's ever happened to him. Aww.
Getting around he walked every-
where, hardly got on the bus. But he got


his first car at age 15! Moved out at age
18 and went to Queens College in New
York. He claimed he hardly learned
anything, but maybe he was just dis-
tracted. See, he had this problem back
in high school, he didn't concentrate
much. He said he just liked to joke
around, like me.
Sixth grade was his hardest year. He
said it was a big difference. They had
just desegregated schools and he went
from a one-room school to a huge
school full of all kinds of races. But it
was a good change.
Growing up he hated not being con-
sidered equal but the best part about life
was football, of course. He never really
had a problem with his classmates, and'
says still today they remember him and
call to check up on him.
Things he did for fun, he went on
family trips, fishing, hunting, even
camping. Not like nowadays when a
computer is your whole life and you
stay inside most days. He was very
active. He has six brothers and sisters
all together. They got along and had a
lot of fun.
Times were different back then, and
my grandpa definitely still keeps it old
school. All those hard times in the past
made my grandpa the strong man he is
today.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each
student is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to the
students and for the enjoyment of our
readers.

'Yes I Can!' Honors 6 Students


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Best Western Heritage Inn &
Suites was the life of the party
on the morning of May 10. The
23rd annual Yes I Can! recogni-
tion banquet honored six local
students from the elementary
schools and junior high.
The program is recognized
nationally and was established
by the Foundation for Excep-
tional Children to award stand-
out students in the areas of aca-
demics, arts, athletics, commu-
nity service, employment, ex-
tracurricular activities, inde-
pendent living skills, technolo-
gy and self-advocacy.
In order to be chosen, each
teacher nominates a student and
must send in a packet of infor-
mation describing the student
and why he should receive the
award. The nominating teacher,
guidance counselor, school
principal and parents of each
child were in attendance.
The first student recognized
was Mary Courtright of Zolfo
Springs Elementary, who was
recognized for achievement in
academics. She was nominated
by teacher Kay Crews, who
accompanied her along with
Principal Melanie Henderson
and guidance counselor Leigh
Beumel.
North Wauchula Elementary
recognized Laynee Galvan in
the area of academics. Joining
her was her teacher, Regan
Davenport, along with Principal
Tracey Nix and guidance coun-
selor Kimberly Alexander.




Save A L

Up For Sw
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It may be the most dangerous
time of year for youngsters of
all ages.
Any child who hasn't learned
swim safety could be the victim
of accidental drowning in a
home, relative or neighbor's
pool.
According to national statis-
tics, drowning is the second-
leading cause of accidental
death in young children, with
over 4,000 child drownings
occurring each year.
Protect your child, grandchild
or other loved little ones.
Teaching skills for children
from age 18 months to age 16
are available this summer at the
Hardee County Community
Recreation Center, 813 Altman
Road, just north of the high
school.
The last registration date is
Saturday from I to 4 p.m. at the
Recreation Complex pool.
Cost is $50 per child for each
two-week session, with classes

2 Hardee Ladies Create

First Children's Book


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
A true story in 2008 in Lake
Placid inspired Leslie Decker
Albritton to write her first chil-
dren's book. She talked her
friend Laverne Bowen Keating
to illustrate the book with
acryii, drawings.
Albritton was along the lake
shore when she saw a mother
mallard duck with eight small
ducklings swimming in single
file behind her. An osprey cir-
cled overhead and made an aeri-
al dive and struck the water with
talons outstretched.
The mother saw the attack
coming, and the entire duck.
family dove underwater.
Twice more the osprey, often
called a fish hawk, circled and
made an unsuccessful dive to
catch a duckling. The eight
ducklings again dived underwa-
ter as the mother stayed afloat
and confronted the bird of prey.
The osprey flew away. The
duck family was safe.
The book has 35 pages and
gives lessons for readers. There
are many drawings in the book,
which is published by Xlibris
Corp.
The title is Sally 0 Mally's
Incredible Day, written by
Leslie Albritton and illustrated


by Laverne Keating.
The author has been married
to Ralton Albritton Jr. for 28
years. They have three children
and four grandchildren. She is
the daughter of Rev. Spencer
and Karen Decker. He is a
retired Assembly of God minis-
ter.
The artist is married to Bill
Keating. They have three chil-
dren and five grandchildren.
She took lessons from wildlife
artist Robert Butler and fine arts
teacher/painter Charles Holder.
Albritton said the eight duck-
lings were saved "because they
listened to their mother."
The book teaches four les-
sons:
1. Children, remember the
lessons taught to you.
2. Don't wander off alone.
3. Obey your parents, teach-
ers, guardians and anyone in
authority.
4. Animals are not the only
ones that need to be concerned
about predators.
The books can be purchased
in hardcover for $27 or softcov-
er for $17 by contacting the
author or at www.sallyoma-
llysincredibleday.com. Prints of
the drawings can be purchased
by contacting the artist.

Some work was being
done at a mental hospital. So
a patient selected a wheel-
barrow, and started to push it
around the job site upside
down.
"Look at that nut!" shouted
the foreman.
"I'm not crazy," said the
patient. "If I didn't push it up-
side down, you'd fill it with
bricks."
Too many go through life
pushing their wheelbarrows
upside down. They move
about, but they don't minister
to anyone. They stir up the
dust, but they don't serve
anyone. They're busy, but to
no one's benefit.
That wasn't true of our
Lord. Concerning Him the
Bible says He "went about
doing good." Others just go
about.
Go about, but do good!

to the Spirit
Driving down the highway, listening to our favorite station, we begin
to hear static and the echo of another station in the background. Fine
tuning is to no avail, we have traveled out of range of the frequency.
Sometimes we stray in our spiritual lives in much the same way,
we travel through our busy days until we may realize that we are not
quite ourselves...we've become easily frustrated, impatient, maybe
discouraged. We've gotten out of tune. Our spirit needs to get
back to God's frequency.
Romans 12:2 advises, "...be transformed by the renewing of your
mind, Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is,
his good, pleasing and perfect will." Get back to your House of
Worship and into the range of the Holy Spirit. Get tuned in to God.

Rc\ell. Lisa's Mother called me
and requested I put in the paper.
Her son. John Revell reads tilhe
Fort Green News and enjoys
keeping up with what is hap-
pening in Fort Green. John is
the grandson of Jewel and
Eston Revell and actually lived
with them and attended school
in Hardee County. Mary Bar-
geron said he rode her school
bus.
Congratulations to Stephanie
Gugle on obtaining her Mas-
ter's Degree. This requires ded-
ication!
Randee Richmond comes to
Fort Green on Wednesday
nights. Last Wednesday was her
birthday and her sister, brought
a cake in honor of.Randee and
we all sang the traditional
happy birthday! She does not
look like she turned 60! Some
people just look young. Sher-
man will increase his age on
Thursday May 31.
Pat Gugle had decorated our
sanctuary with red, white and
blue honoring Memorial Day.
Pat usually provides the decora-
tions and they always look
appropriate and pretty.


A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
When the woman saw that
the fruit of the tree was good
for food and pleasing to the
eye and also desirable for
gaining wisdom, she took
some and ate it. She also
gave some to her husband
who was with her, and he ate
it.
Genesis 3:6-7 (NIV)

FRIDAY
For all that is in the world,
the lust of the flesh, and the
lust of the eyes and the pride
of life, is not of the Father
(God), but is of the world.
And the world passes away,
and the lust of it, but he who
does the will of God abides
forever.
I John 2:16-17 (RSV)

SATURDAY
Get wisdom it's worth
more than money; choose
insight over income every
time. ... First pride, then the
crash the bigger the ego,
the harder the fall.
Proverbs 16:16,18 (ME)

SUNDAY
Care as much about each
other as about yourselves.
Do not be haughty, but go
about with humble folk. Do
not keep thinking how wise
you are.
Romans 12:16 (NEB)
MONDAY
Nebuchadnezzar said, "1, by
my own power have built
this beautiful city as my royal
residence and the capital of
my empire. ... At the end of
seven years, I, Nebuchad-
nezzar, looked up to heaven
and my sanity returned, and
I praised and worshiped the
Most High God. ... for He is
able to take those who walk
proudly and push them into
the dust."
Daniel 4:30,34,37 (TLB)

TUESDAY
The love of which I speak is
slow to lose patience it
looks for a way of being con-
structive. It is not posses-
sive; it is neither anxious to
impress, nor does it cherish
inflated ideas of its own
importance.
/ Corinthians 13:4-5 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
Blessed be the Lord day
after day He carries us
along. He's our Savior, our
God, o yes! He's God-for-us,
He's God-who-saves-us!
Psalm 68:19-20 (ME)

Brother A. 0. Hendry
preached at Fort Green last
Sunday and preached a super
good sermon. He asks for
-prayer for his grandson who is
on the way to Afghanistan on
his fourth tour of duty. I person-
ally think three tours are
enough for one person but then
I don't make the rules. Our
number was down and they
surely missed a treat. With
Memorial Day weekend, quite a
few were on vacation and three
families were absent attending

That Other Land
It's not far away, the place to which they go, it's
just beyond the starlit skies, where moonbeams
start to grow. And night is day and day is night, and
sorrow comes no more, where love abides beyond
the tides, upon a golden shore. And we must wait
here for a while, until it's time to go. Although we
carry on, we mourn, because we miss them so.
And through the years God dries our tears. He
said, "My peace I give." Oh God ... we thank you
for the help. And the chance we have to live.

' fA Journey of 9th Grade Self-Discovery by Three Freshmen
Sbv lakalya Chancey, Danielle Smith, and Hannah Napier


High school. People say this is the place where
5ou are going to have the best four years of sour life. What
people neglect to tell you is that it is a big transition for a
person to move from junior high into high school; whenev er
you do. it feels like you really are starting to grow up,
As freshmen, we had many feelings starting
that first day of school excitement, anxiety,
outright fear. We all fell something different.
As a student, you experience this sensation as if
\ou are walking through a minefield wearing a blindfold.
Bells ring out of nowhere like a child's piercing scream,
teachers pour know ledge into your w-aiting mind whether
you are ready or not, and seniors give you menacing
stares encouraging y\ou to sta\ with your own class.
Nevertheless, by theend o fthe year, it turned out pretty
well. We found the metaphorical bouncing Betties ("Stayv off
thatgrass. kid ")and thesafepath("Ireallydocareaboutyou").
People began to treat us more as adults and less like
children. We gained more freedom from our parents because
iheyC trusted us to make wise, informed decisions, even though
that trust is occasional ly misplaced for we are still kids after all,
We had many more assignments and outside activities
than ever before, and leniency was not as easily granted by


theseteachersasthose In. ic, '-i idLS'. Sometimes
it became hard to balance., and vec stumbled. ,
How ever, we recov ered, we grew, and we thrived.
Occasionally, the knowledge we
gained was more street smarts than anything
learned from a book. Procrastination is a
horrible word, and we should ban it from our
vocabulary (although this will never happen).
There is no second or third floor to the Ag
building. een though upperclassmen keep trying

Unfortunately. some community
members still believe in the stereotypical "lazy
teenager" who does nothing but party and play ,
\ ideo games. In reality, this is fair from the truth.
At Hardee Senior High, most students are Freshmen
proud of their accomplishments. We are beginning ~-, di,
to learn how to survive in the real world and are
discos ring the lype of people we want to become.
In the end, all the fears we had as freshmen
have mostly been overcome. Initiations won't kill us,
teachers aren't horrific, and grades can be maintained.


students. Makavia Chancey; Danieiie Smith, and Hannah Napier "h.t the books"
more than just survive their freshman year they THRIVED their freshman year!

Looking back. we aren't really sure how we went from
the petrified 9th grader to being on the cusp of 10th. However,
we did make it. Wow! Now, 10th can't be that bad, right?

License-Free Saltwater, Freshwater


Fishing F
The first week of June is
National Fishing and Boating
Week.
This year. start and end the
week's festivities by taking
advantage of one of Florida's
license-free fishing days.
Saltwater recreational anglers
can fish without a license on
June 2 and freshwater recre-
ational fishers on June 9. There
couldn't be a better time to get
out on the water and try your
hand./at some of Florida's fine
fishing on these two Saturdays.
Thirty-four states, including
Florida and Georgia, will have
license-free fishing days during
the June 2 through June 10
National Fishing and Boating
Week, a celebration of fishing
and boating.
"Florida's license-free fishing
days are an excellent opportuni-
ty to share the fun, excitement
and togetherness of a fishing trip
with the entire family. This also
is a great time for experienced


un Coming N
anglers to introduce friends to
the sport, even if they don't have
a fishing license." said Nick
Wiley. FWC executive director.
"By having these events on
weekends, we hope Florida resi--
dents and visitors will experi-
ence the joy of saltwater and
freshwater fishing. We expect
many will discover a healthy
sport they can enjoy for a life-
time."
Saltwater anglers can try their
hand at catching a red snapper,
which will be open for harvest
in Gulf and Atlantic state waters
and Gulf federal waters on the
June 2 saltwater license-free
fishing day. Want to stick a little
closer to shore? Try your hand
at near-shore species such as
spotted seatrout or red drum.
Now that school is out or
almost out and people are in
vacation mode. anglers will
find June a great time to intro-
duce a child to fishing or
encourage a friend who hasn't .
been fishing for a while to get
on the water.
Almost everyone in Florida is
within 45 minutes of a freshwa-
ter fishing hole. Dawn or dusk
may be your best fishing times.
but if you go midday, seek out
the shadows around piers or
fallen trees, or look for bass and
bream under floating vegetation
mats and in other shaded areas
to enhance your success.
Fishing is a low-cost, whole-
some form of entertainment.


[ext Week
which is why the FWC offers'
four days when a recreational
fishing license is not needed.
Can't make the June 2 or June 9
license-free fishing days? The
FWC also made Sept. I a
license-free saltwater fishing
day. which not only falls on a
holiday weekend, but is during
the popular bay scallop and
spiny lobster seasons.
Each year, the first Saturday
in April and second Saturday in
June will be license-free fresh-
water fishing days.
The state's abundant re-
sources, coupled with responsi-
ble freshwater and saltwater
fish management, are why Flor-
ida is known as the "Fishing
Capital of the World."
All other bag limit, season
and size restrictions apply on
these dates.

SonHaven


Celebrates


First


Year


On August 15, 2011, we opened the doors to SONHAVEN PREPARATORY ACADEMY, INC. in Wauchula, Florida. Celebrating
1Q blessed-by-the-Lord years in Sarasota and 30 years overseas, we have now turned our vision to the "Heartland" of Florida and are
once again amazed by God's goodness. In one school year we have seen a ministry birthed and a vision firmly established.
They say pictures are equal to thousands of words so we pray you will enjoy these photos of what the Lord has created in the
very heart of Florida. With Dance K.I.D.D.S. founded, SonHaven SonShine Signers (ASL in song), field trips taken, a book not only
written but published and available on amazon.com and video on youtube created by the publisher, a visit to present the Governor
with an autographed copy of the book, dual- enrollment at South Florida Community and State College of Florida, several students
enrolled in Florida Virtual School to take electives and newly recognized by the Florida Registrars of Colleges to accept students as
an accredited school with FCCPSA, and so much more, we are primed to reach this community and beyond for the Kingdom of
Jesus.
Thank you, First Christian Church for sharing in our vision by opening your facility to reach young people on a daily basis, not
only academically, but more importantly, spiritually. Thank you, to our Board, comprised of Rev. and Mrs. Al Gill, Dale and Sabrina
Crawford, and Justin and Cindy Smith; your advice,wisdom and prayers have sustained us. To our staff our heartfelt "thank you" for
reaching the hearts- of children grades Pre-K to 12th.
Our first graduation/ promotion was held on May 21st with a sanctuary filled with those who stand behind
this ministry. Your kind and uplifting words, e-mails, hugs, volunteer
spirit and open hands to give have sustained us. Yes, we are full for
grades Pre-K to 6th for next year but you may call to be placed on our
waiting list. There are a few openings for 7th-11th. Together we will "I k'' .

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


HARDEE COUNTY FAIR RANCH RODEO:
PAI .~DEUX
Last time around you were introduced to the teams that corn
peted in the annual ranch rodeo held as part of the Hardee Count
Fair: 7S Bar; The Perry Bunch, Florida Fuel, JTF Performanc
Horses, and.M&N Cattle. (See, Peck, when you complain about th
coverage I give you, I put you last!)
The first event was the team sorting. The cattle were not at al
cooperative, and the pickup men could not keep them on the wes
end of the arena, where this event has always taken place. If you'v
heard the saying "if you can't beat them, join them," that's wha
they did they just moved the event to the east end of the arena
where the calves wanted to be anyways!
This event was won by M&N Cattle, consisting of Christ
Newsome, Peck Harris, Matt Smith, Cody Robinson and Jost
Brown and I have to (begr,"'-ingly) give Peck credit for a fin
job, sorting out their three nut! -red calves in one minute, 10.
seconds. The Perry Bunch was cI 'behind with a time of 1:18.97
then 7S Bar (with Mandy Cantu giving a beautiful performance
coming in at 1:28.5.
The other two teams had a no-time, caused in both instance


by troublesome calf No. 9, but I will say that Patrick Carlton did an
* impressive job out there for the JTF Performance Horses team.
After the break for the mutton bustin', we came back with the
double mugging event. JTF's steer crossed back over the line, and
7S Bar and Florida Fuel couldn't get their steers roped, all receiv-
ing a no-time.
That left The Perry Bunch consisting of Hailey Andrews,
* William Perry, Stevie John, Jason McKendree and Allen Lanier -
to win this event in 5.7.22 seconds (plus a five-second penalty for a
second steer getting out first). M&N Cattle came in with a time of
1:6.56.
I- Then the cowboys got a break from the action with the barrel
y racing. This was a close race between Ciara Mercer for 7S Bar,
e coming in at 16.22 seconds, and Lacey Cumbee for Florida Fuel,
e with a time of 16.35 seconds. Even the cheering from Lacey's
teammates of T.J. Mitchell, Jackie Bishop, Windy Walker and
11 Keith Ross couldn't get her that extra .13 of a second!
st Christy Newsome ran the pattern in 17.12 seconds, while both
e Hailey Andrews and Tamme Miller Fussell knocked over a barrel,
At giving Tamme a time of 20.95 seconds and Hailey a time of 22.53
, seconds.
Next was the hybrid event of team doctoring. The buckle
y maker sent team doctoring buckles, but the event was supposed to
h be branding. So we went with the doctoring, except that they were
e

)


May 31,2012, The Herald-Advocate 11B
not required to run back to the branding circle, just chalk the head.
Since the cowgirls don't like to have to run in that arena dirt, this
change was welcomed by the branders on each team (especially
Tamme)!
M&N Cattle had a good time of 44.63 seconds, followed by
JTF Performance Horses (headed up by Tamme Miller Fussell, her
husband, Jimmy, honorary family member Brandon Dieter, as well
as Keith Nelson and last-minute replacement Patrick Carlton) with
a time of 57.79 seconds (plus a five-second penalty for ?), then 7S
Bar with a time of 1:7.10, and the Perry Bunch in at 1:15.39.
Florida Fuel had a no-time, as its steer crossed back over the line.
We always save the most exciting event, the bronc riding, until
last.
This event had shared winners with a score of 62, with Josh
Brown of M&N Cattle and Justin Loux of 3D Quarter Horses.
Josh's bronc was named Lucifer need I say more?
William Perry rode Pistol Pete for a score of 59, Brandon
Dieter rode Snake Stomper for a score of 58 (pictured in the last
column), and Keith Ross rode Sunoco for a score of 55.
The 7S Bar member crazy enough to bronc ride was Dalton
Smith, and even with teammates Luke, Mandy and Dawson Cantu
and second female team member Ciara Mercer cheering him on,
Dalton barely stayed on long enough to get out of the chute. (But I
will give him credit the next month Dalton took home the purse
for winning the ranch bronc riding event at the Christian rodeo held
at Reality Ranch.)
And the winners are: Barrel racing went to 7S Bar, double
mugging went to The Perry Bunch, and M&N Cattle took team
sorting and a bronc-riding shared win, giving them the All-Around
title and that lovely silver tray.
Congrats. cowboys and cowgirls (even you, Peck)!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.
Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding,
Cowboys and Cowgirls!
