DTF Cashes In On


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A routine traffic stop by alert
detectives has netted nearly
$14,000 in cash from a suspect-
ed drug dealer, the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office has
alleged.
Salomon Maldonado Jr., 20,
of 4405 Dixiana Dr., Bowling
Green, was arrested on
Thursday morning after two
members of the Drug Task
Force spotted him driving a


vehicle even though his driver's
license is suspended.
They stopped Maldonado,
and found he had an air about
him, Sheriff Arnold Lanier
described.
Maldonado and his Dodge
pickup truck smelled of burning
marijuana, he charged.
Detectives Jamie Wright and
Carree Williams detained
Maldonado on the spot, near the
intersection of Chester Avenue
and Jones Street in Bowling


Green, and conducted a search
of his vehicle.
It allegedly revealed what is
called a "blunt," which is a
cigar wrapper stuffed with mar-
ijuana; a digital scale, which
tested positive for methamphet-
amine; a spoon, also positive
for methamphetamine; four
plastic bags, two empty and two
containing suspected metham-
phetamine; and a total of
$13,876.01 in cash, Lanier said.
The sheriff described the

breakdown of currency at four
$1 bills, 20 $5s, 49 $10s, 139
$20s, 10 $50s, 100 $100s, one
$2 bill, and one penny.
Lanier said the cash was
stuffed in a black bag under the
rear passenger's seat.
Further, he said the suspected
methamphetamine discovered
in the two plastic bags weighed
in a .5 grams each.
Lanier went on to allege that
drivers carrying scales, plastic

Scores Dismal

All But 1 Result Lower Than State


PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO
Seniors strike again! Now that the Class of 2012 is out of school, senior pranks are sure to make an appearance. Dr.
Michele Polk, principal at Hardee Senior High School, witnessed one firsthand when she woke up on Thursday. In the
middle of the night, playful seniors sneaked onto Polk's front yard and planted several signs from across town. One
of them, however, even gave the answer as to who the culprits were. For more on graduation, see related story and

many thought this would be the
year their lives would change.
For Macey Reas this was the
case, although the changes
she's been through have not
been for the better.
Macey, daughter of Kim
Reas and Lawrence Reas, is a
2010 Hardee Senior High
School graduate. On Feb. 17,
she was involved in a serious
car crash.
That afternoon Macey was
driving on a rural road in
DeSoto County when she


swerved in an attempt to avoid
another driver who ran a stop
sign and traveled into her path.
Macey, who Was not wearing a
seat belt, suffered serious
injuries and was airlifted to Lee
Memorial Hospital.
The driver of the other vehi-
cle fled the scene but was later.
apprehended, the Florida
Highway Patrol reported.
Macey was in a coma and in
the Intensive Care Unit until
March 14. She was then flown
to Shepherd Center in Atlanta,


Ga. This hospital is rated one of
the top 10 rehabilitation facili-
ties in the country.
There, Macey is enrolled in
the Pathways program, which is
a more extensive portion of
therapy. She participates in
physical, speech, occupational,
therapeutic and cognitive thera-
py five times a week.

Hardee County schoolchild-
. .encbntinue to score lower than

Comprehensive Assessment
Test.
The Department of Education
released another batch of results
on Tuesday, this time for read-
ing and math for grades 4-8 as
well as science for fifth and
eighth grades. Among the dis-
trict schools, there is only one
test that was scored above the
state's standard, fourth-grade
math. The remaining tests came
in at an average of 12 points
below the statewide marks.
All of the schools' scores can
be found online at the Florida
Department of Education's
website, www.fldoe.org, In
order to decipher the scores,
parents should be particularly
interested in the "percentage in
achievement levels and above."
The tests are scored on a
range .of levels one through
five, with three being passing.
For each test and grade, the
state will compile individual
districts and come up with the'
average score, or percentage of
students who passed. Online, a
comparison can also be found
between the individual districts.
READING
The state's percentage in
.fourth grade that received a
passing grade was 62, as a dis-


trict Hardee averaged at 50.
Hilltop received a 48, Bowling
Green a 40, Zolfo Springs a 48,
Wauchula .a 54 and North
Wauchutt -did -the best of the
district but still scored lower
than the state with its 59.
Fifth grade's state average
was a 61, the district scored 15
points lower making its 46.
Hilltop received a 50, Bowling
Green a 45, Zolfo Springs a 40,
Wauchula Elementary a 58 and
North Wauchula had only 36
percent of its students pass.
Hardee's sixth-grade students
had a 48 percent passing rate,
the state's average was a 57,
putting them nine points below
par.
Seventh-grade students had
the biggest gap, 21 points,
between the state's score of 58
and Hardee's 37.
The eighth graders tallied 11
points less than the state's aver-
age score of a 55.
MATH
Being Hardee's only group to
outscore the state's percentage.
of 60, the fourth graders.
excelled, as a whole, by three
points. Individually, Hilltop and
North Wauchula tied at best
with 73 percent of.their students
passing. Wauchula Elementary

Green a 55 and Zolfo Springs
earned a 56, coming close but

Linda Clark this week reminded us of this important, timeless
quote from Edmund Burke, "All that is necessary for the triumph
of evil is that good men-do nothing."
Who is Burke? Google says he was born in 1729 in Dublin,
Ireland, and died in. 1797 at age 68. He was a statesman, author,.
philosopher and political theorist, supported the American
Revolution and opposed the French Revolution.

Congratulations to Tiger Woods for winning the Memorial
Golf Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, over the weekend. Jack
Nicklaus was the tournament host. He has tied Nicklaus with 73
tour wins but trails Sammy Snead who won 82 tournaments..
Nicklaus leads with 18 Majors titles while Woods is second with
14. Tiger's other win this year was the tournament hosted by
Arnold Palmer, another golfing legend.

ALGEBRA EOC
As the need to pass the PCAT
slowly goes away, students will
be required to take End-of-
Course (EOC) Exams in its
place. Hardee Senior .High's
principal, Dr. Michele Polk, has
explained that currently the
only EOC result tied to gradua-
tion is the Algebra I test taken
by this year's freshmen.
Across the state, students
excelled in the. end-of-cour.'e
assessment. As reported by the
Department of Education, near-
ly nine out of 10 middle school-
ers who took the exam passed'
and earned the algebra credit.

uate. Although the test is given
to students as early as sixth
grade, the only concerned
,scores are those for the ninth
graders, in order to fulfill a
newly added graduation .re-
quirement.
Hardee's eighth- and ninth-
grade students.both surpassed
their state counterparts, bring-
ing good news to the results
released by the state.:
An impressive 100 percent of
students in the eighth grade
who took the algebra EOC

Hardee Senior High School's Class of 2012 will take its final walk on Saturday.


Class Of 2012 Graduates


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
"There is a good reason they
call these ceremonies 'com-
mencement exercises.' Grad-
uation is not the end, it's the
beginning."
This quote by U.S. Sen. Orrin
Hatch paves the way for the
excitement and anxiety felt as
this weekend's graduation cere-
mony approaches.
The much-awaited event will
be held Saturday morning
beginning at 10 at the Hardee
County Cattlemen's Arena at
the intersection of Altman and
Stenstrom roads in Wauchula.
To start the commencement
exercises, Dorothy Bell will be
playing "Pomp & Circum-
stance" as Hardee Senior High
School's seniors take the spot-
light on the walkway.
Following the seniors' dis-


play, the presentation of colors
will be by the Air Force Junior
Reserve Officer Training Corps,
and Taylor Bolin will lead the
Pledge of Allegiance. Dawson
Crawford will offer the invoca-
tion, leading into principal Dr.
Michele Polk welcoming the
graduates, their friends and
families, as well as the teachers
and School Board.
Following Polk comes the
part of the program seniors talk
about all year: Alan Jay Auto-
motive Network will present
the "Wheels for A's" winner,
and that lucky senior will leave
Saturday morning with a pre-
.owned car.
The graduating Class of 2012
is the first to experience "Latin
Honors," meaning there will be
no valedictorian or salutatorian
addresses; instead the Summa
Cum Laude students will give
brief words of wisdom to their


fellow graduates before the
selected Daniel Hernandez
gives a formal speech to repre-
sent the class. Those students
sharing a few words will be
Briana Albritton, Brittany
Dunlap, Jonathan Heither,
Daniel Hernandez, Khao Lor,
Anais Morillo, Summer Palmer
and Taylor Pohl.
Following, Senior Class
President Chelsea Wallace will
then give her address to the
graduates.
Senior American Sign
Language students have been
practicing for weeks to offer
their special performance to fel-
low graduates. They will be
signing "The Graduation Song
(Friends are Friends Forever)"
by Vitamin C, to which Polk
will then announce Class
Certification.
Superintendent David Dura-
stanti will take the podium to


Saturday
offer his quick words of wis-
dom before assistant principals
Todd Durden and Mary Farr
present the graduates. As sen-
iors walk across the stage, they
will be presented diplomas by
both Durastanti and Polk.
Once the Class of 2012 has
officially graduated and thrown
their caps in the air, they will
proceed to the recessional
accompanied by Bell and
"Pomp & Circumstance" once
again as they greet fellow class-
mates, family members and
loved ones not as students, but
as new members of society.
To continue the day of cele-
bration, the recent graduates
will take one last trip together
before going their separate
ways.
Project Graduation will be
held at Adventure Island in
Tampa. Throughout the year the
Project Graduation Committee
has raised funds to offer this
safe alternative for celebration
to the Class of 2012.


ing in the hear future.
Macey has overcome many
obstacles and boundaries in her
recovery, aid is now talking,
reading and writing.
Macey's mother, Kim Reas,
says the whole family is thank-
ful for all the prayers, cards and
thoughtfulness throughout this
time.
Although making good
progress, Macey will probably.
remain in Atlanta until July and
then return to her home and
continue with outpatient thera-
py a few times a week until she
no longer needs it.
Before her accident, Macey
worked at Charlotte's Webb
Pub. This weekend the bar
wants- to show its support for
Macey by throwing a benefit
along with its fifth annual
Gemini Party.
The benefit will start this
Saturday at noon and end late
Sunday afternoon.


There will be plenty of
events and entertainment, such
as acoustics with Rodger Brutus
and friends and the Crush band
on Saturday and a poker run
and live music jam on Sunday.
There is a $10 donation per
hand in the poker run and $5 for
an extra card. The $500 in prize
money will be split between
various categories. It doesn't
matter what you drive or ride,
or even if you go on the run,
anyone can participate in the
game.
There will be barbecue
chicken and pork plates for $f0.
Drive-up service will be avail-
able on Saturday.
Several 50/50 raffles and a
silent auction also will raise
more money, with all proceeds
going to help Macey.
Charlotte's Webb is located
at 3315 SR 64 W. If you would

benefit, call 735-8887.

Greetings from Fort Green!
What a wonderful rain we
had on the first day of June!
What a great way for a month to
begin. All the trees, flowers,
etc. seem to be lifting their-
selves a little higher and
brighter as no amount of irriga-
tion can do what a good shower
does.
We had a terrific sing at Fort
Green last Saturday night. This
was preceded by a delicious
fish supper. During the sing,
Greg Rawls was honored for his
50th birthday and I feel sure he,
would have preferred to just
continue singing!
Happy birthday wishes are
also for Kasey Powell. She
turned 11 on May 21. Also
wishes are sent to Karson
Goodwyn who turned nine on
June 2. Her Nana. made her
birthday cake and, of course,
had a picture on her phone and
it was a pretty cake. Betty is
very talented. They had a fami-
ly get-together Sunday after-
noon. Karson had a friend's
party on Saturday! .
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Bobby


Gibbs. I always liked Bobby
and he and my late husband,
Kay Silverman, were friends.
His sister-in-law, Carla Gibbs,
and I worked together at First
Federal and by the name you
know it was a long time ago!
Brother Steve and Tara have
returned from a short vacation.
They both agreed it was a good
vacation and they enjoyed rest-
ing! That is what a vacation is
supposed to be about but most
of us arrive back home very
tired!
Charles and Lynda Abbott
had a great time at their Blairs-
ville, Ga., mountain home.
Lynda said they made sure they
were back home in time to
attend the graduation exercise
of their great grandson, Lane.
The program was held at the
Bowling Green Elementary
School.
Rascal and I were walking
one day last week and he heard
someone coming before I did.
Rocky Sonnier's Dad is visiting
them and he said he jogs every
day; -He made the block in Fort
Green and that is a long dis-
tance! Of course, he comment-


Fort Green News

ed on the reason for his visit,
and you already know it was to
visit with his beautiful grand-
daughter, Addie. I'm sure it
was to visit Angie and Rocky
also!
The state bowling competi-
tion was a success'as all the
young ones who attend Fort
Green bowled over their aver-
age. This included *K-Lynn
Simpson, Kasey Powell, Kaylee
Hogenauer, Hunter Davis and
Hunter Reid. They all enjoyed
the trip even though Mike
Davis told me he was sick on
Saturday and unable to attend
but had to remain at the motel.
Of course, with this number of
bowlers, you can multiply by
two to get the total number
attending from our area!
Tamara Griffis was with them
and did well also and has
.attended our church quite often
in the past.
Betty Waters told me her
granddaughter, Karson Good-
wyn, received awards at the
Awards Program at Bowling
Green Elementary recently.
They included AR award, Stu-
dent Council, Citizenship and
she was on the A/B honor roll.
Keep up the good work,
Karson.
The Herald had a little infor-
mation on the Waste Generated
Products Company, that is still
planning on coming to Hardee


County. I cannot understand
why there are not some well-
known companies who want to
locate in our area. Fort Green
would have been happy to have
the Wal-Mart Distribution Cen-
ter that -went to Desoto County.
Now I am speaking for myself,
but since the powers to be seem
intent on putting something in.
our area, let it be something
good. There was nothing in the
paper about the natural gas stor-
age tanks that is being dis-
cussed except the Public
Notice. Everyone, not just Fort
Green residents, should attend
the public meeting on June 14,
at 6 p.m. in the Commissioner's
Office to find out what is being
discussed for our county.
Dakota McQuaig had a birth-
day party recently, and his
Uncle David and cousin Patrick
were in Fort Green for the great
occasion.
Betty Abbott is under the
weather and in the local hospi-
tal as is Louise Durrance.
Please pray for them.
Please pray for one another,
our nation, our county and the
military.

To accomplish great things,
we must not only act but also
dream, not only plan but also
believe.
-Anatole France

More Than 300 People


Race For The Cause!


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
On your mark, get set, GO!!
On May 18, Friday Night
Live wasn't the only thing going
on along Main Street.
Since its introduction in Jan-
uary of this year, SendMeMis-
sions Inc. knew -it needed
financial support within the first
few months in order to begin
helping the different ministries
they were hoping to serve this
summer. ,
It was then that SMM decided
to have the First Annual 5K race
and provide a 12-week Bible
Study prior to the race.
President of SMM Jamie
Davis-Samuels said, I"We de-
cided to try something a little
different and have not only a 5K
but make it a night race as ivell.
We felt by including it with Fri-
day Night Live (FNL), it would
provide a family friendly atmos-
phere."
The race began at 6 p.m. be-'
hind the Hardee County Court
House, continued on .South
Florida Avenue, turning on Sten-
strom Road, turning again onto
Hanchey Road, and then coming
in West Main Street to finish off
on the corer of West Main
Street and Eighth Avenue.
The event ended up being a
huge success, with 310 people
pre-registering and 246 making
it through the finish line. There
was a large participation from
local runners and people frpm
Sebring, Avon Park, Auburn-
dale, Myakka City, Winter
Haven, Arcadia and St. Cloud.
The 5K raised over $14,000.
That money will go directly to
support Home Mission Projects


(within the U.S., including
Hardee County), Foreign Mis-
sion Projects and Mission Trip
Scholarships.
A portion of the funds have
already gone into assisting a
mission trip with Orphan's Heart
in Santiago, Dominican Repub-
lic for June 23-29. In all, 35 peo-
ple will be going on this trip, 23
of them from Hardee County.
While there;,SMM will be
working with over 400 children,
providing them with a dental
clinic and Vacation Bible School
type activities. SMM does not
represent one particular church
or denomination, instead it sup-
ports "the Body of Christ as.
one."

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
There were more than a
dozen items covered during the
90-minute Wauchula workshop
Monday evening.
Most of them will have final
decisions made at the regular
monthly meeting this coming
Monday at 6 p.m. As usual, the
meeting will be in the
Commission's City Hall
Chambers, 225 E. Main St.,
Wauchula.
All commissioners were pres-
ent Monday evening except
Patricia Detwiler, who had pre-
viously advised she would be
out of town and unable to attend
this meeting. City Manager
Terry Atchley and commission-
ers Ken Baker and Ken Lam-
bert announced they would
need to leave by 6:45 because
they had sons graduating and
needed to attend baccalaureate
services.
The meeting began promptly
at 5 p.m,,, moved along quite
well and was completed by 6:30
except for an executive session
on negotiation on a contract dis-
pute.
Atchley presented each of the
agenda items until coming to
the Community Redevelopment
Agency portion of the meeting,
which was handled by CRA/-
Main Street director Jessica
Newman.
Two of the trio of CRA sub-
jects concerned the proposed
renovations at 226 W. Main
Street, which will be the new
location for E-Z Products. Busi-
nessman Dave Brown will be
working on a long-term lease
instead of purchase of the build-
ing.
The previous agreement for
the city to accept an Industrial
Development Agency $300,000
grant to renovate the building
was contingent on Brown buy-
ing the building. Phase I envi-
ronmental studies revealed the
possible presence of contami-
nants, likely from old storage
tanks under the pavement in the
*alleyway behind the building.
The city is exploring options to
Suse Brownfield cleanitp monies
to remedy the situation.
It was also decided that dis-
bursements from the grant


would go to Orangewood
Builders in prorated portions as
the restoration work in the
building is done.
Meanwhile, the final CRA
issue concerned the agreement
between the American Legion
and the city to sell the parking
lot at the intersection of Main
Street and U.S. 17 South, at a
cost of $80,000, $10,000 down
and $10,000 a year, to be paid
from CRA funds.
One of the main discussions
during the regular portion of the
meeting was the Roy Brown
code enforcement lien on which
a judgment was entered by
Circuit Court Judge Marcus
Ezelle in late April. The prop-
erty was to be sold in May to
satisfy the judgment, but the
City Commission encouraged
city attorney Cliff Ables to have
it postponed. The sale is now
set for June 20.
Ables presented a four-page
report detailing all the notifica-
tions Brown had during the
years his code enforcement case
was pending and actually had
105 days to remedy it before the
Code Enforcement Board ac-
tion assessing a lien.
Brown countered that he
understood he had complied
with the fixing the repairs for
which he had been cited and
said the code board made fun of
him'being "a Gator and engi-
neer." As a graduate of the
University of Florida engineer-
ing department and a certified
engineer, they wondered why
he did not understand. The
Board reduced the $18,000 fine
($200 a day x 90 days) by half
and since that August 2005
occasion, Brown had not paid
it, leaving it to accrue until it
went before the Circuit Court in
2008. It took over four years to
get a judgment on that unpaid
lien.
Commissioners talked Mon-
day evening about negotiating
with Brown to reduce the
amount of judgment to be paid.
Rather than the more than
$14,000 owed, Brown would be
asked to pay the costs the city
had incurred plus perhaps
$1,000 of the original lien.
"There's plenty of blame to
go around. Neither the code

board nor Mr. Brown are entire-
ly innocent. Each contributed to
this situation. Right now, it's
this commission's responsibili-
ty and we have a decision to
make" commented Commis-
sioner Lambert.
Commissioner Keith Nadas-
kay added, "The building has
since burned down. I think it
would perhaps be best to fine
$10 a days for the 90 days,
roughly $1,000 plus the costs
which the city has incurred.
Others suggested amounts
totalling $5,500 to $8,000.
Commissioner Gary Smith
reminded that costs were
increasing with interest, adver-
tising and scheduling a new
property sale,
In the end, the matter was-
postponed for final decision at
this Monday's meeting.
In other matters, the commis-
sion considered several items
and left final decision for
Monday's meeting:
-Resolution 2012-19,
changing insurance agent to
Albritton Insurance Co.
-Payment of actuarial
expenses of $8,625 for work on
the pension funds. The amount
is to be paid out of pension fund
accounts.
-Brief review of the pro-
posed safety manual now
required.
-Review of the budget
adjustment process. In most
cases, staff can make budget
adjustments if the total fund
doesn't change but should pro-
vide. periodic reports or bank
statements showing how funds
are being spent."
Atchley said he felt there
were checks and balances in
place. He, Finance Director
James Braddock and City Clerk
Holly Smith are able to sign
checks. At least two of them
must sign a check.
-Discussed making the ani-
mal control ordinance the same
as the county's. Current fines
and fees do not meet all the
costs of operating animal con-
trol.
-Raniked the Economic
Development Agency grant
project applications reviewed in
a meeting with the EDA and
applicants last week.

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
Five large American flags
have been given to schools in
Hardee and DeSoto counties by
the United Spanish War Ve-
teran's camp, Number Thirty-
Six, Wauchula. Three of the
flags are purchased by members
of the camp who raise funds
among themselves for the pur-
pose.
P. A. Colton, of Lakeland,
district supervisor of the All-
American Thrift Stores, of
Florida, was in the city on
Monday afternoon and an-:
nounced that an All-American
store would open for business
in Bowling Green tomorrow
(Saturday). It will be located in
the building formerly occupied
by Taylor's IGA store on Main
street just east of the traffic sig-
nal.
According to figures from the
Wauchula Farmers' State Mar-
ket complied by Ray Marsh
during the past week, the initial
season of the new mart ended
amid success as approximately
139,731 packages of various
produce were handled through
both the auction and platform.
There was an average of 2,321
packages handled daily, while-
the average return per day for
the farmers hit the mark of
$4,589.29.
Trustees of various school
districts throughout Hardee
county have sent in their recom-
mendations for educational
instructors in the respective dis-
tricts, and the county school
board has okehed the lists. T. E.
Blackburn, superintendent of
public instruction, stated
Wednesday that Limestone was
the only school which had
failed to have their teachers rec-
ommended.

At long last Hardee county
has a new home demonstration
agent. Taking over the office
July 16 will be Miss Mary M.
Williams, of Folkston, Ga. She
was recommended by Mrs.
Edith Y. Barrus of the state
office and approved this week
by the county commissioners.
Wauchula will have another.
Eagle Scout after Monday
night. Michael Cummings, son
of Mr. and Mrs. John Cum-
mings, is scheduled to be raised
to the rank of Eagle Scout at the
Highlands District Boy Scout
Court of Honor Monday night
at 7:30 in the Wauchula Met-
hodist Fellowship Hall.
Whether or not Hardee
County participates in the pro-
gram of snag-clearance *of
Peace River will depend on
how much, if any, county
money is available and if the
commissioners have the legal
authority to use county money
for this purpose.

cipal of Hardee High School.
Bowden,47, who was hired at a
special session of the board
Monday, requested he be able to
transfer his sick leave. The
board Tuesday agreed to allow
him to transfer some sick leave
but did not decide how much.
SA new twist has developed as
contract negotiations continue
between the city and the county
for countywide fire protection.
The Wauchula City Council
Monday night unanimously
.agreed to offer to lease its fire
department to the county for
one year for $1 and then pay the
county for each alarm answered
inside city limits.
Children ages 7-11 with asth-
ma and-or other lung conditions
can attend "Camp Sunshine
Station" from July 12-18 at the
University of South Florida in
Tampa. The camp, sponsored
by the Gulf Coast Lung As-
sociation, uses a comprehensive
education program entitled
"SuperStuff" to enhance chil-
dren's understanding and self-
help skills of their respiratory
condition. In addition, recre-
ational activities both on and
off the campus will be provid-
ed.
Some 38 Hardee High School
seniors were honored May 26 at
the 2nd Annual Senior Schol-
astic Banquet at the Hardee
Agri-Civic Center. The seniors
Shad a 3.0 (B) average or better
for their high school career. The.
welcome was given by George
Lackey, acting principal of
Hardee High School. The invo-
cation was given by John
Maddox, assistant superinten-
dent of schools.
10 YEARS AGO
A natural gas pipeline which
can transport 1.1 billion cubic
feet per day opened service
through Hardee County recent-
ly. It becomes the second natur-
al gas line in the county;joining
the Florida Gas Transmission
Co. line which parallels CR 663
South (Ona-Fort Green) Road
on its way to Fort Myers..
The U.S. Postal Service last
week unveiled a "Heroes
Stamp", which stands as a trib-
ute,to the men and women who
courageously.served our county
and our nation during and after
the Sept. II terrorist attacks.
The new stamp is semi-postal
and is priced at 45 cents. This
means that with the first-class
starrip price increasing to 37
cents on June 30, the "Heroes
Stamp" net proceeds of eight
cents will be distributed to the
victimized families of relief
personnel.
"Which of your grandchil-
dren would you want to lose?"
Zolfo Springs resident Kathy
Oberle told county commis-
sioners. recently that question
bothered her all the way back
from a trip to British Columbia.
A police officer in Canada
asked her if the United States
law didn't protect back seat
passengers, which one of her
grandchildren she was willing
to give up.
A. constant problem with
leaks on the jailhouse roof
spurred questions of who is
responsible for these expenses.
County commissioners grap-
pled with budgeting for repairs
and maintenance for the 10-
year-old facility as they consid-
ered various upcoming projects
to finish out this year's budget
and proceed into the next fiscal
year with starts Oct. 1.

I" Testimonial for Thomas Santarlas(R)

for Sheriff of Hardee County
"I have known Thomas Santarlas for several years and he is a very educated, dedicated,
professional law enforcement officer, who still works the streets and deals with current
A law enforcement issues on a daily basis. He is well versed in his vast experience, education
and training. He has not lost touch with the current issues that face society today and is
proactive in learning new techniques to combat crime.
I worked for Hardee County Sheriffs Office for 19 years, retiring in 2008, but returning
to law enforcement a year later. The highest rank I held was Captain, in the Detention Division for a couple
years, but the majority of my career was in the law enforcement division. Over the past 20 years the current
administration has stayed.the same by promoting those within that maintain the same old philosophies.
The "reactive" approach to law enforcement is dead and proven ineffective. The new, proven approach is the
intelligence based "proactive" approach to crime. Hardee County Sheriffs Office has not had a significant change
in the ideals, attitudes, or goals towards an ever changing law enforcement profession in all that time.
Working for a more progressive, proactive agency I can say that Hardee County deserves a new approach in law
enforcement. Hardee County needs fresh ideas, new attitudes to combat current issues, proactive goals, and an
administration that is not so immersed in the "good ole boy" system, to better serve the community; basically a
new philosophy towards law enforcement.
The time has come to lying in a new administration and have a fresh approach to techal.enges.that ace small
town commtunit'y and a small agency with a limited budget and resources.Vote for a change, vote for Thomas
Santarlas!" Barry Schnable Retired Captain, Hardee County Sheriffs Office

Museum Matters
Marlene Rickels Hyde
Cracker Trait Museum Curator


THE HISTORY OF MILITARY MEDALS
Today, it goes without saying, that if you are in the military
and perform an act of heroism, especially during battle, you will
receive a medal for bravery.
Audie Murphy is remembered for being the most decorated
soldier of World War II with 29 combat awards including the
Medal of Honor. Even the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz re-
ceived a medal for bravery.
But, have you ever given any thought as to the history of the
medals? Prior to the Civil War, veterans of military service did not
receive medals for their valor. The display of medals on a uniform
was considered a European tradition usually reserved for royalty
and worn by men who got them not for anything special they did,
but because of WHO they were.
The history of military medals dates to the Roman Empire in
which honors, often in the form of a metal disk featuring the
emperor's likeness, were bestowed on officers to recognize mili-
tary campaigns. Similar medals were given to lower-class soldiers
and centurions.
Queen Elizabeth I of Great Britain issued medals to commem-
orate England's victory over Spain in 1588. Officers generally
enjoyed these honors until the 18th century, then rank-and-file sol-
diers were recognized.
The first medal awarded to U.S. military personnel was the
Fidelity Medallion, created in 1780 by the Continental Congress
and awarded to soldiers who helped capture British Army Maj.
John Andre, who aided American traitor Benedict Arnold. The
Badge of Military Merit followed in 1782 and was given only to
enlisted men for conspicuous service.
The concept behind the Badge of Military Merit was revived
when Iowa Senator James Grimes proposed a valor medal at the
beginning of the Civil War. The award, to become the Medal of
Honor, was met with skepticism by Commanding Army General
Winfield Scott, but was signed into law by President Abraham
Lincoln in December, 1861. Because the president of the United
States presents the medal in the name of the United States
Congress, it is sometimes called the Congressional Medal of
Honor.
Conceived in 1860 and first awarded in 1863, the Medal of
Honor has been awarded only 3,459 times to 3,440 recipients,
almost half of them Civil War soldiers and there have been 19 dou-.
ble recipients. More than half of those who received the Medal of
Honor did not survive the action for which it was awarded.
The Medal of Honor has specific provisions for recipients
at least two eyewitnesses must provide "incontestable evidence"
to a deed that proves to "be so outstanding, that it clearly distin-
guishes gallantry beyond the call of duty from lesser forms of brav-
ery, involve the risk of life, and be the type of deed, which, if not
done, would not subject the recipient to any unjustified criticism."
Over the years, the Medal of Honor's parameters have undergone
revisions to ensure it is justly bestowed upon those who merit it.
It took nearly 60 years for 29 'African-American and Asian-
American heroes to be recognized for their actions during World
War II. They were finally honored, many posthumously (after
death), at ceremonies at the White house in 1997 and 2000;
On rare occasions, the Medal of Honor has been issued -for
individual acts of bravery occurring during peacetime. Capt.
Charles A. Lindbergh received the medal for his "heroic courage
and skills as a navigator, at the risk of his life, for his nonstop flight
in his airplane from New York to Paris, France, 20-21 May 1927."
Other decorations awarded by Congress are the Distinguished
Service Cross and the Distinguished Service Medal (1917) and the
Distinguished Flying Cross (1942). The Purple Heart, created by
George Washington inl782, and revived in 1932, is awarded for
wounds received in action. The Silver Star and the Bronze Star are
awarded, respectively, for heroism and for outstanding service.
Each service has its own cross that ranks above the Silver Star.
Oak-leaf clusters (in the navy, gold or silver stars) are marks of
repeated awards of the same decoration.
Four U.S. Army nurses were awarded the Silver Star, our
nation's second highest medal for bravery, including one posthu-
mously, in 1944 for bravery in the evacuation of a field hospital at
Anzio, Italy. But not until Sgt. Leigh Ann Hester was awarded the
Silver Star in 2005 in Iraq did another woman receive the honor.
Army medic Monica Brown was awarded the Silver Star in 2008
for gallantry in Afghanistan.
In the U.S. and Great Britain, a ribbon, indicating by its color
corresponding medal, rather than the medal itself, is worn over the
left breast pocket of the uniform. Ribbons are awarded military
personnel who fought in specific campaigns and theatres of opera-
tion during times of war. All members of the military who serve
during a time of national war or conflict are awarded the National
Defense Ribbon.
Carl Sandburg once said, "Valor is a gift. Those having it never
know for sure if they have it till the test comes."
We have several medals and ribbons in our military section of
the Cracker Trail Museum on display and are always looking for
more. Perhaps you have a medal or ribbon that you would like to
donate or loan to the museum and a story to go along with it. We
would love to place it along with the other treasured items in honor.
of those who have served and especially those. who paid the ulti-
mate sacrifice in the name of freedom.
While we give military personnel medals for heroism we need
to be sure and give them our respect as well. ,

must be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the

Florida Administrative Weekly (FAW).. If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and
conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will
also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a
public meeting result in a significant change to the draft permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised
draft/proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made
available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above

the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency Clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to
written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publication of the Public Notice or
receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who
asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that
notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate
time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing)
under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any
subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the
following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known; (b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; the name
address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service
purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial rights will
be affected by the agency'determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the
petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the
petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; (f) A statement of the
specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed
action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A
statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to
take with respect to the agency's proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon
which the Permitting Authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public
Notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final
decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the
proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air
operation permit and to perform its 45-day review, provided by the law, and regulations concurrently with the
public conunent period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of
publication directly to EPA at the following email address: oquendo.ana(iena.gov. Although EPA's 45-day
review period will be performed concurrently witli the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a
citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA's 45-day review period is
performed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title V air operation permit will be issued
after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in


a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA's 45-day review of
this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address:
http://www.epa.gtov/region4/air/permits/florida.htm.
Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition
the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45-day review period as
established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(l), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any
petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the
30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the
Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless
the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of
the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-
213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section
7661 d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W.,
Washington, D.C. 20460. For more information regarding EPA review and objections, visit EPA's Region 4

\anous skills that come with being

skills and running a front office.
Possible m my most rewarding
e\penence from volunteenng would be
working with Para Professional Aides at

and learning about different disabilities.
So no matter your area of
interest, there are various places and
ways to find work and gain experience.
Not only is the experience
good lor a future job, but for college
purposes as well. When colleges look at
an application they want to see a well-
rounded student with high scores and
grades, But colleges want to see more: they
are also looking for students who have a
solid background in community service.
Community service also


pla\s a role w hen appl\.ing for
scholarships. Most a\ ailable

One popular scholarship. Bnght
Futures, requires students to ha\e a
minimum ot 75 hours of community

I am not alone in m\
positure experience with community
ser ice. Junior student, Steven
Radandt agrees with the benefits
of volunteerism stating. "By doing
community service, it has helped
me to be more responsible and
selfless and learn valuable skills."
Being active in community
ser ice helps develop character and
people skills, important qualities
in a young adult. While at times
community service can be a hard
task, the qualities and skills that
one takes away make the work
that much easier and enjoyable.

. .fl'- 7 Life Lessons Learned
,"r A by Brianna Albritton, Brittany Dunlap, and Summer Palmer


We all thought it was the end of the world when we
found out our freshman year that hoodies were not allowed.
Classes were much more rigorous than we could have ever
expected.Somefriendsweremore likeenemiesthan weactually
thought. Welcome to High School. Granted, it was a rude
awakening, but became a bittersweet enlightening in the end.
High School prepared us for things that we
never knew we would have to face; hours of studying,
draining standardized tests, strict teachers, and life
situations that caught us by surprise. Overall, through
high school we have learned life lessons that we will
carry with us through college and the rest of our lives.
I, Brittany Dunlap, have learned that confidence
is key. I have learned this through encounters with
various faculty members and fellow students. If
you are not confident, you will not succeed in life.
Confidence enables you to express yourself, speak
your mind, and contribute to society. If you do not have the
confidence to speak out, who is going to say what you have to
say? "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me,"
andifGodisformethennothingcanstopme. (Philippians4:13)
I, Briana Albritton, have learned that making a 'B'
in AP Calculus is not the end of the world. Life is more.


than grades, and education is not limited to the classroom.
Education can be learninghow to deal with stressful situations.
It can be learning how to be a leader in any circumstance.
I have learned that I am not always going to be
the best, but striving to be the best makes me the best
I can be. Education is not just a grade on paper; it is
learning about life and what you can give back. "For
our present troubles are small and won't last very long.
Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs
them and will last forever!" (2 Corinthians 4:17)
I, Summer Palmer, have learned that scratching the
surface is not enough. In order to get the most out of life I
have to work at everything with all my heart. This includes
schoolwork, relationships, and everything in between.
If I am going to apply myself to something,
I am tb work at it with all that I am. Several teachers
have taught me that if I want 100% out of life, I am to
give 110%. I will "work at it with all my heart, as if
working for the Lord and not for men." (Colossians 3:23)
The teachers at Hardee Senior High School
have required us to shed blood, sweat, and tears, but
through it all they have been.there to help us. At times
it seemed impossible and even a little bit ridiculous.


Seniors Brittany Dunlap, Brianna Albritton, and
Summer Palmer are jumping into the future.
but at the end of these four years it has all paid off.
Our teachers have helped us achieve our dreams.
Now, as graduated seniors, we are walking out of Hardee
County with a diploma in one hand and an acceptance letter
in the other, prepared to face anything that comes our way.


Hardee High School Key Club members, Brenda Pascual; Khao
Hlee Lor, President; Luis Luna; and Olivia Sanchez, Treasurer, re-
cently traveled to Orlando to attend the Florida Key Club Conven-
tion. They attended various workshops that trained them on leader-
ship skills, fund raising activities, and building club membership."

American Legion Celebrates Memorial Day


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
A crowd of 90 people at-
tended Monday's Memorial Day
service at the Herger Williams
Post No. 2 of the American Le-
gion in Wauchula.
Post commander Joe Filice
said 624.531 American service
members have died in World War
I and other wars since. Among
them were 72 men from Hardee
County.
Hardee's math percentage,
considering the county's popula-
tion of 27,731 and America's
population of 313.6 million,
would be 55, he said.
Herger Williams was the first
Hardee Countian killed in World
War I, and the local post is
named after him. "He was in the
Army, was an excellent marks-
man and was sent to the front
lines."
The guest speaker was James
Stallings, who was born in
Texas, grew up in Ocala and
earned a college degree from
Stetson University, where he met
his wife Bess'Allen of Wauchula.
She also earned a degree there,
and they have two grown chil-
dren, Jay and Merideth.
Stallings was a public rela-
tions director of the Alabama
Medical Association, personnel
supervisor for CF Industries, an.
ordained Baptist deacon and
minister, taught at the local high
school and community college,
and served on the Wauchula City
Council and Hardee School
Board. He taught Sunday School
at First Baptist Church of
Wauchula.
Here is Stallings' talk:
"He was taller than most kids;
he certainly weighed more than
the rest of us kids. He was all
muscle and could run like a deer.
He was an avid hunter and fish-
erman ... arid he was my friend.
Stan Moody and I grew up as
boyhood friends in Ocala back in
the 1950's ... we went to school
together, sat in church together,
and played ball together.
He loved to spend time at his
family's lakehouse-and property
along Lake George in the Ocala
National Forest. He would often
invite me out to the lakehouse for
the weekend, and we would
roam the woods together'or fish
in the lake until we were called
for supper.
"Stfai's hunting 'skills ind fishi-'
ing skills were legendary-even
as a youth. Word had it that Stan
was afraid of nothing-and I
witnessed it first hand.
Stan enlisted in the Armed
Forces right out of high school
and was chosen to serve in a spe-

cial forces unit during the Viet-
nam War.
He was a legend in the mili-
tary, too, serving two tours in
Vietnam, participating in under-
cover operations in the jungles of
Laos and Vietnam. Word had it
that he was instrumental in sav-
ing many lives.
I was later told that in doing
so, Stan experienced the ugliness
of war firsthand and saw things
most of us never imagine. It left
an imprint on him!
He returned home, went to
work in the family business,
married his high school sweet-
'hefrt, anrd't"eygain raising two
wonderfulchildren.
And then on the night of Nov.
5, 1982, Stan Moody donned his
military uniform, greased his
face with black, and heavily
armed himself. He drove to Lake
George and to the family prop-


erty where he and I used to play
as boys and at the: base of the
American flagpole he had
erected in memory of his late fa-
ther, Stan setup a perimeter.
He added barricades to keep
out the Vietcong that he saw in
his mind attacking him from all
sides. Without ceasing, he fired
wildly into the night, unloading
all of his 'ammunition into the
trees and brush around him, try-
ing to stop the advancing and un-
seen enemy. Finally, Stan took
his own life at the base of the
flagpole.
It was over for Stan Moody-
but it was not over for his wife1
and their two small children. It is'
never over. Missions may end,
but the legacies left and the pain
of their absences remain with all
of us.
By the time our last remaining
troops returned from Iraq in De-


cember 2011, nearly 4,500 of
their comrades lost their lives
during Operation Iraqi Freedom
and Operation New Dawn.
We continue to lose American
heroes every day in Afghanistan,
in military training accidents and
missions around the world. The'
loss to their families, friends, fel-
low service members and fellow
countrymen is permanent.
I recently visited with a friend
who trained dogs in Vietnam ...
380 dogs were lost in the Viet-
nam War. They were German
shepherds and Labrador retriev-
ers.
Bj~i-ibmit ;to;.you. that re-
mefibering our fallen once a
year is not enough! The widows,
widowers, fathers: mothers, bro-
thers and sisters, and children-
they remember them everyday,
don't they?
Such as 22-year old native of


IPHOTUS BYJIM KtLLY
James Stallings of Wauchula was the keynote speaker.


upstate New York, Corporal
Jason Dunham: Corporal Dun-
ham was on patrol when his unit
was attacked in Iraq. When the
enemy hurled a grenade, Corpo-
ral Dunham used his helmet and
body to smother the explosive,
absorb the blast and save his fel-
low Marines.
Eight days later, on April 22,
2004, he died from the injuries
inflicted by the blast. He was the
first Marine to receive the
Medal of Honor since the Viet-
nam War.
How about the family of
Army Sergeant Dennis Weichal
of Rhode Island? Sgt. Weichal
enlisted in the Rhode Island Na-
tional Guard in 2001. He suc-
cessfully completed a tour in Iraq
in 2005 and was re-deployed to
Afghanistan in 2012.
The report says that when he
saw a young Afghan boy picking
up shell casings in the middle of
the road, Sgt. Weichal acted in-
stinctively. He pushed the boy
from the path of a moving ar-
mored vehicle sure to run over
the child, and sacrificed his own
life so the little boy could live.
Three young children in
Rhode Island sacrificed their fa-
ther, so one young child in
Afghanistan could live.
Why: ao they do-it? Why?
From the American Revolution
to the global war on terrorism,
American men and women like
Stan Moody, Corporal Dunham,
and Sgt. Weichal have made the
supreme sacrifice-for you and
for me! They died so that we


could continue to cherish the
things they cherished-God,
freedom, the United State of
America, our families. Even
Holy Scripture reminds us that
"Greater love hath no man than
this-that a man lay down his
life for his friends."
That is why we gather here on
Memorial Day-to honor the
memory of our fallen warriors
who have given everything for
us.
And attending this service is
just the beginning for you and
me. What else can we do to
honor these fallen heroes?
1. We can pray.
2. We can attend to the needs
of their families, in person if pos-
sible ... one example.would be
scholarship funding assistance
on behalf of their children.
3. We can share with our chil-
dren and our grandchildren what
Memorial Day really means ...
and tell them over and over and
over again about those who gave
their lives for us.
4. We can fly our flags again.
When I think that Stan
Moody, Corp. Dunham, Sgt. We-
ichal and thousands more like
them have died for me-took my
place--gave of themselves for
me-for me (someone most
never -knew~ )it literally brings
me to my knees-in humble
gratitude for what they have
done for me ... for you ... for their
country ... for our freedom.
May God bless you and the
USA."


Lyndsay Naranjo sang the National Anthem and led the ,
singing of God Bless America. Post Commander Joe Filice gave the welcome:


Post Chaplain John Maddox gave the prayer and benedic-
tion.


James Stallings and Florence Heath, widow of veteran Charles Heath, placed a wreath
at the American Legion Monument honoring Hardee military members who died in
wartime.


Bob Weidman and former Post Commander Carl Saunders show their respect.

Of The Herald-Advocate
With an eye toward preparing
the Hardee teams of tomorrow,
tennis lessons for boys and girls
ages 12 through high school can
participate.
John Holt, who is Sebring
High tennis coach, wants keen-
er competition from the Hardee
teams, so has offered to teach
all basic skills and drills.
Cost for the week, Saturday,
June 9, through Saturday, June
16, is $90.
The classes, 9-11 a.m., will
include a variety of strokes,
forehand, backhand, volley and
ground strokes, lobs and drop
shots, as well as scoring and
court targeting or placement,
hitting for the alleys. Cross-
court and directional hitting,


racket grips and strength.
In addition to the drills, there
will be competition in single,
doubles and mixed doubles.
If there is enough interest,
Holt may also teach a class for
seniors, men and women who
have never played the sport and
want to lean and participate. A
weekly class would also be $90
and private lessons are $25 per
hour.
Holt, a youthful octogenari-
an, has coached tennis at the
collegiate and high school lev-
els. He has a background as a
player and an official. He is a
member of the U.S. Tennis
Association and U.S. Tennis
Professional Association. He
taught girls tennis at Webber
College in Lake Wales recently
and in his sixth year as boys


tennis coach at Sebring High.
For the past five years he has
been selected Coach of the Year
and twice received the Presi-
dent's Award and Fireman's
Award at Sebring.
He brings a lifelong interest
and experience in the sport of
tennis. He can be reached at

,, Awareness
FOR CE By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
As school is almost over and
the temperature is rising, swim-
ming pools are starting to look.
more and more appealing.
The Hardee County Building
Department has a few tips and
reminders as this year's sum-
mer begins.
Any swimming pool, includ-
ing "temporary" or storable
pools deeper than 24 inches
should be permitted and in-
spected by the building depart-
ment. Ground-fault circuit in-
i.,:7'! terrupters are required and any
electrical parts that operate the
pool pump must also be
inspected for safety.
Keep in mind that a barrier
must be provided between the
pool and casual visitors or chil-
dren.

Letter To The Editor

3PR Director Says Mining
Will Harm Hardee's Future


Dear Editor:
The great majority of people
living in Hardee County seem
mesmerized by the short term
economic benefits of phosphate
mixing and woefully unaware
of the extremely negative
impacts that the mining will
leave behind both on our econ-
omy and our environment for
future generations.
The total acreage of Hardee
County is approximately 420
thousand acres. The phosphate
companies own 125 thousand
acres, or one fourth of the total.
As mining expands, property in
the vicinity of those mines will
decrease in value. It too will be
acquired for mining.
Fifty percent of all phosphate


mines will become clay waste
disposals. In other words, at a
minimum, over 60 thousand
acres of this county much of it
productive agricultural land,
will be lost. The remaining 60
thousands acres, so-called
reclamation, will be an "engi-
neered" landscape severely
compromised for any other kind
of development.
Having a predominantly agri-
cultural economy, how will
Hardee County ever survive a
loss of this magnitude?
Do you think that I am mak-
ing up this dire forecast? I was
recently shown a document dis-
tributed by James "Bud" Cates,
program administrator for the
Florida Department of Envi-

ronmental Protection, confirm-
ing these projections. In antici-
pation of a meeting of the
Wildlands Network this docu-
ment makes a case for better
management of the Peace River
watershed.
It says: "It has been estimat-
ed that approximately forty per
cent (40%) of the aerial extent
of current phosphate mines in
Florida is made up of waste
clay disposal areas If water-
return systems ai.. 'marinas"
(water-return system collection
areas) are included in the esti-
mate. the aerial extent is closer
to fifty per cent (50%) of cur-
rent mines. It is now realized
and shown that continuing clay
consolidation within disposal
areas, despite reclamation, is
creating growing area / volume
of surface water impoundment
that is not draining to tributar-
ies. Likewise, these impounded
areas are becoming monocul-
tures of willow-swamp with
high transpiration rates and
very little commercial or
wildlife hTbitat value."
Yet another report, this one
written by the Florida Depart-


ment of Environmental Protec-
tion and the Bureau of Minerals
and MiningReclamation states:
"It has been recognized by
numerous entities including the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District, Florida De-
partment of Environmental Pro-
tection, the Department of the
Army Corps of Engineers, the
Fish and Wildlife Commission.
Polk County. Central Florida
Regional Planning Council, the
Charlotte Harbor National
Estuary Program, the Univer-
sity of Florida, the University of
South Florida. Florida Institute
of Phosphate Research and the
Peace River Basin Management
Advisory Committee, that
phosphate mining prior to regd-
latoryprograms has caused sig-
nificant disruptions to the
Upper Peace River Basin."
And, "... little has occurred that
will ultimately correct the cur-
rent condition of clay consoli-
dation, surface water impound-
ment, need for drainage recon-
figuration and need for water
control structure and manage-
ment."

because it only cites "phosphate
mining prior to regulatory pro-
grams." In fact, no reduction in
area / volume has occurred with
regards to clay slime disposal
since regulation (1975). The
South Pasture Mine Extension,
scheduled for approval by the
Hardee County Board of
Commissioners this summer,
will not differ in that respect
from pre-regulation mines -
which by the admission of all
those agencies mentioned
above has "caused significant
disruptions to the Peace River
basin."
How long will we sit back
and allow this travesty to con-
tinue? I have been tracking
phosphate mining proceedings
in this county for the past ten
years, and I have never known
of even one commissioner who
cast a dissenting vote on any
permit, annual review or vari-


ance to an existing phosphate
mine permit. This irresponsibil-
ity and disregard for our future,
our long-term economy, our
water resources and our agricul-
tural heritage must come to an
immediate end.
To protect and preserve
Hardee County from this relent-
less strangulation by the phos-
phate mining industry our coun-
ty government must strictly
adhere to all Land Development
Code policies, Comprehensive
Plan rules and Mining Ordin-
ance restrictions until the phos-
phate industry figures out a way
to mine and process phosphate
rock without condemning our
descendants to a legacy of
despair.

DESIGNED FOR SAFETY.

ENGINEERED FOR EXCELLENCE.

In keeping with our 30+ year track record, we are proud to be a good neighbor, a stable source of good jobs, and a strong contributor of tax and severance
revenues to Hardee County. We look forward to many more years of being a strong community partner, a strong supporter of local education, and a strong
protector of wildlife, water and the environment. Our ability to produce high quality fertilizer for farmers across the nation also is important. Phosphate mining
is the first step of that manufacturing process, and a vital part of Hardee County's economy, as well as the Hillsborough, Polk and Pasco County economies.
Along with being a strong financial contributor to the region, we have a long track record of working with our neighbors to create an atmosphere in which we
all can succeed. CF Industries is committed to supporting Hardee County and its citizens.

Letter To The Editor

Some Hardee Political


Leaders Are
Dear Editor:
Folks, the monkey is on our
backs. The ball is in our court. I
could think of many things to
say, but.none will register with
some of us. We all have lives
and all that these lives bring to
the table, which come in bunch-
es like bananas, but none of us
are rained on so to speak. It just
seems that way when it is us in
the moment of what life throws
our way.
The problem is why do we let
these excuses drown us in
despair and cause us to not
speak out. If we believe in God
we should be encouraged and
strengthened in his word which
lives and is full of power. If you
don't believe in Him, I am with-
out words for your situation. I
humbly question God at times
and am sure you may also, but
we should know he knows best
and he knows us personally, and
I think he wants us to take a
stand against any evil even in
Hardee government (if not us,
who; if not now, when?).
I can list the corrupt ones but
it's easier to list the ones who
are not in office for self-serving
purposes which promote each
other's private affairs. I under-
stand that most of us haven't'a
clue how widespread the prob-


Self-Serving
lems are, in people we know
and allow to govern our lives
and business. Most could care
less about you, your well-being,
safety or what we leave our
future generations.
There are tough decisions we
have to make as we go through
life. At this point I am not refer-
ring to the most important one
(Salvation), but rather amn refer-
ring to one that ranks very high
on the list that is, corruption in
politics and the rich, who are
bleeding us to death more and
more. These politicians are
from Hardee County to Wash-
ington..,They are also inter-
twined like'a giant. fish net,
making one giant cartel that
works very effectively at pro-
moting prosperity for the politi-
cians and the corporations,
which they receive muchh"
benefits from.
While in office they in an
unspoken oath are sworn to
uphold their brotherhood, creat-
ing much despair and poverty to
the 99% of the rest us. They
provide corporate welfare
where the taxpayer foots most
all the major expenses that
these corporations would incur,
leaving the mega dollars to be
sucked up by these politicians
and corporate wheels.

Now to the point, we as
Americans and neighbors must
start sacrificing time, get
involved in educating ourselves
about what Hardee County is
doing in the open in many
cases, and back room, systemat-
ic bleeding of our town. Yes,
this sounds radical to some, but
if you spend a couple hours of
time investigating, you will be
filled with anger, which God
condones if it is without sin.
Challenge your politicians to do
the right thing.
There are people banding
together and have the ball
beginning to roll towards elimi-
nating local corruption issues.
We have to focus on the politi-
cians in Hardee for now. Once
we clean Hardee up maybe we
can move toward higher gov-
ernment issues, where we even
have Hardee grown politicians
grappling at the almighty dollar
as if that is the answer to life's
problem for them personally.
I am not authorized to pro-
mote the Concerned Citizens
group that meets at Double J
restaurant to educate 'them-
selves on how Hardee govern-
ment works but that's one group
that is an option and you can
meet other citizens who are
concerned for the future and
well being of Hardee County
(contact them for meeting times


and dates.)
Independently you can con-
tact me at fmcycle@embarq-
mail.com for where and how to
get public information. We have
tons of documentation, or if you
want it would be better to go to
the various meetings of local
government. You can ask for
public records which are avail-
able by law for the public (See
firsthand for yourself).
It has been portrayed that
some of these agencies had to
be private. This was a mis-
understanding, because of
things said by the leaders, but at
the consistent request of two
citizens meetings of the EDC
and IDA will be held in com-
mission chambers and videoed
for the record and are available
online for public viewing or
review. (Need help locating
videos, email me or ask at the
county) .
Something has to give, with
self serving-politicians:

Rolling Tires Down The Hill


B9 TYLER BRAGG
Special To The Herald-Advocate

Q: When and where were you
born?
A: March 15, 1937 in Bowling
Green, Hardee County, Florida.

were they like?
A: A white and black spotted dog
names Spotty. He would chase, lick,
and play with me.
Q: What did you do during the
summer?
A: visited with my family and
friends, often sitting on the front porch-
es helping shell peas. We would also.go
swimming in the creek a lot.
Q: -What-scfthoolof schools did y'ou
go to'and where were they?
A: A one room school house in
Center Hill called Primer, it was like
kindergarten. Then I went to
Elementary and High School in
Waucfiula.
Q: What was school like?


A: I had a really strict teacher, Mr.
Driggers.

popular when you were young?
A: Poodle skirts and saddle-oxford

Q: What do you think some of the
best inventions have been in your

A: There's so many good things:
electricity and plumbing are probably
the best things, but computers have

window out in the front bedroom and
we had to put a quilt up to keep the.
water and wind out of the house. The
first row of seedling orange trees were
tilted due to the strong winds. There are
some of those trees still living.
Hurricane Charley, you already know

your life? Could you tell me about it?

friends and dating Harold Coker. i
Q: What was the most tragic event
you experienced? Could you tell me,

When you live with someone for so
many years, it is hard to live alone,
without them.
Q: If you could travel anywhere in
the world, that you have not already
been, where would it be and why?
A: I would like to go to Vancouver,
Canada because I think it would be
beautiful there with all the glaciers.
Q: If time travel existed, would
you travel to the past, present, or
future first and why?
A: I'd pick the past first and go to



JUICY FACTS


Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. That's a place
that we used to vacation and always

Dear Fellow Citizens:

My name is Dorothy A. (Dottie) Conerly and after much prayer and encouragement, I have decided to
run for Clerk of Court of Hardee County. I have been a resident of Hardee County for 51 years. My
husband is Wayne.Conerly and we have one son, Marcus, and two daughters, Cindy and Leslie. I began
my business career at Wauchula Abstract & Title Co. in 1972. I have just celebrated 40 years in business.
My life's work has given me experience in budgeting, accounting, management, customer service and
human resources. This knowledge is a significant portion of the responsibilities and duties as Clerk of
Court.

The citizens and business community of Hardee County have been :
good to me and my family through the years. It is my desire to
give back by serving them in the position of Clerk of Court. I care
about the people of Hardee County and those who work in our
county government. My managerial skills offer a style that pro-
motes teamwork and collaboration. The clerk, as public trustee. is
a position of integrity and respect. I will be. certain that I exude
the qualities befitting the position. I am detail oriented which will
help me quickly develop policies and procedures as needed that
meet the requirements consistent with Florida law. I will promote
cooperative interaction with the Board of County Commissioners.
Judicial system,.law enforcement and other official organizations.,
We will work together in promoting and presenting our county in
a positive light. I believe the clerk's office can play a positive role
in the growth objectives when it is committed to working together
with shared, common goals.

I believe in excellence when it comes to customer service. The citizens deserve a unique and valued ex-
perience. I am' proud of the job that the current staff does, and I look forward to leading the team. We
will strive to educate all customers on the functions of the clerk's office. The team will be empowered,
within the law, to function at the best of their ability to serve the people. I will work hard alongside them
to assist in providing the services the citizens deserve and expect. We will work to modernize the office
through efficiency and technology while working within any budgetary constraints.

It is my goal to have all portions of the Clerk's office to be rated in all measures by the public as Excellent.
I intend to implement a measurable customer service survey, so we can know our successes and failures.
I look forward to meeting you during this campaign period and listening to your ideas and input regarding
the clerk's office and the needs of our county.

Sincerely.

SEEDS
FROM
6 ,THE
SOWER



It was awfully cold one win-
ter and two porcupines hud-
dled together to keep warm.
But they pricked each other
with their quills, and they had
to move apart.
Soon they were freezing
again, and they had to lie side
by side to survive.
How like church members.
But let's avoid the needling
because of the needing.
Let's have more love and
less shove, more action and.
less faction, more aligning
and less maligning, more
benefitting and less belittling.
The Bible says, "Hate what
is evil, cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in
brotherly love."

Graduation marks the ending of scholarly education, moving on
from old friendships and routines. Graduation also marks the
beginning of a new life of learning in different ways, meeting new
people and charting an unfamiliar course. Finally, graduation is
also a significant stop along the way, a preparatory pause. The
word itself means a gradual transition, a time to remember the
past, to ponder the present, and to dream ofthe future. Whatever
graduation means to you, feel proud of your accomplishment,
and praise God for providing you with strength and guidance
along the way.

>E w, 1Science is Elementary!
IThe Hardee County Elementary Science Curriculum for PreK through fifth ad was de-
veloped in accordance with the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards.
Science instruction is delivered in a variety of formats depending upon the structure of
the school. The focus on the intellectual rigor of scientific inquiry develops a scientific literate
populace with the skills to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Reading and writing about
science are also vitally important tools in the effort to develop students' understanding and mas-
tery of science concepts.
Science is always about observing and describing the natural world. Parental involve-
/ ., ment is strongly encouraged. Family activities as diverse as nature walks, growing a garden,
Splaying ball together or cooking an evening meal can help students develop background knowl-
edge that will facilitate the acquisition of important science concepts.
