Clerk Scuffles With Armed Robber


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of, The Herald-Advocate
An armed robber struck in
Bowling Green last week, hit-
ting that city's lone grocery
store.
Sellers Market, at 4730 U.S.
17 N., was empty of customers
at the time, but the male clerk
behind the checkout counter
tussled with the bandit before
relinquishing the cash, Bowling
Green Police Chief John Scheel


said.
Capt. Brett Dowden, the lead
investigator in the case, said
fortunately no one was hurt.
Both Scheel and .Dowden
were relieved the outcome was
not tragic, and took time this
week to warn 'area residents
against resisting an armed
crook.
"We never recommend resist-
ing an armed robber," Dowden
said. "Money is never worth a


life. Nothing can replace a life."
According to the' police
investigation to this point, the
robbery occurred at about 9:41
p.m. on Tuesday. No one was in
the store or in its parking lot at
the time.
A man wearing a ski mask
and gloves, along with baggy
clothing, entered the market
through the front door, Dowden
described. He was brandishing
a handgun.


The thief demanded money
from the store clerk, who was at
the register.
"There was a short struggle,"
the captain said. "He and the
clerk tussled. The clerk tried to
get the gun from the robber."
The robber, however, broke
loose and aimed the gun at the
clerk. "The clerk decided not to
Resist any further, and complied
With the demands of the robber.
And once he left, the clerk


called law enforcement," he
added.
Dowden cautioned others.
"While it is normal to try to
protect your employer's proper-
ty, we don't advise anyone to
ever resist an armed subject,"
he said. He instead implored
citizens to comply with an
armed robber's demands for
their own safety, and then to
immediately report the crime to
authorities.


Dowden said the call came in
to the 911 line, bringing a
response from the Bowling
Green Police Department .and
the Hardee County Sheriff's
Office.
The robber, he said, had fled
the scene on foot. He was last
seen running in a northeasterly
direction, toward Central
Avenue, he added.
Dowden said police and

old. Now, Hardee County citi-
zens will once again be able to
do so at Pioneer Park in Zolfo
Springs. .
Although the fireworks will
be presented by the Builder's
Association, it took the entire
community to bring this great
tradition back, Benny Hash,
association president, said.
Many individuals and corpo-
rations donated money to make
this display possible, he said.
Also County Commission, the
Hardee County Sheriff's Office,
Hardee County Fire-Rescue and
other various governmental
entities helped bring this event
.back.
The show will begin at dusk,
which will be around 8:30 p.m.,
and will go on for 45 minutes. If
the weather does not allow for.
fireworks, they will be post-
poned until Thursday, Hash
said.
Prior to the show, the Boy
Scouts of America will be sell-
ing chicken and spaghetti din-
ners in the Recreational Hall
from 4 to 7:30 p.m. The money
collected from these dinners
will go to fund the Boy Scouts
programs.


Tickets for the dinners can be
purchased in advance by calling
Sue Baker at 773-4436.
There will also be a vendor
.selling peanuts, cotton candy
and other refreshments for
those wanting to see the show.
According to Beckie Steph-
ens, BC Sound will be playing
music from 7 p.m. until the fire-
works begin.
Hash, of Hash Plumbing
Inc., said he wanted to bring
this exciting, patriotic display
back because he does not want
to let the tradition fade away.
"This is mostly for the chil-
dren and older people who still
feel young at heart," Hash
added.
SIndependence Day came to
be when Thomas Jefferson
drafted the Declaration of In-
dependence. This stated the
independence of the then 13
colonies from Great Britain.
According to the website
census.gov, in July of 1776, 2.5
million people were declared
independent. Today that num-
ber has grown to 313.9 million
people. All of these people will
go on to celebrate the birth of
America.


Although bringing chairs or
blankets to enjoy the display is
acceptable, bringing personal
fireworks and alcohol will not.
be permitted.
Hash invites everyone in
Hardee County to get together
in Pioneer Park and enjoy the
return of the Independence Day
festivities. The park is located
at the corner of U.S. 17 and
State Road 64.


Debby Dumps




On Hardee

No Serious Damage Reports


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Everybody's talking about it!
Rain, flooding, trees down, a
tornado, whatever part of Har-
dee County a person lives in has
had some effect from Tropical
Storm Debby, which was down-
graded to a tropical depression
a-s w-'t- ro'ssed northern Florida
Wednesday.
Although, much-needed rain
relieved the heat and drought
effects, it went above-and-be-
yond as the summer rainy sea-
son begins.
Rain reports varied around
the county. At the University of
Florida Range Cattle Station
west of Ona, official reports
were 4.77 inches by late Tues-
day. Barbara Carlton, executive
director of the Peace River
Valley Citrus Growers Associ-
ation, said the weekend amount
of rain was 6.2 inches late
Tuesday at her Arcadia office.
Reports vary from three to 10
inches, depending on rain bands
in parts of Hardee County.
Carlton said, "The rains have
been good, they were needed so
badly. It helps save irrigation
costs and irrigation cannot
replace the natural effects of
rain. There's water standing in
some groves, but it is gradually
moving off or soaking in,"
Carlton continued.
She noted that it may increase
citrus canker, which is a wind-
blown disease: Most growers
spray with copper to coat the
leaves to prevent bacteria from
getting to them, but rain and


even heavy dews can wash it off
and expose them to canker.
SA flood warning that was in
effect for the Peace River
through Saturday was lifted
Wednesday morning. It had
been expected to rise above the
16-foot flood stage. Reports
estimated levels would be 16 to
17.1 feet. Now it is back to
14.55 feet and expected to con-
tinue to decrease, still more
than a foot above levels a week
ago.
According to the National
Weather Service, warning along
the Peace River comes when its
levels reach 14 feet, and is crit-
ical when it goes over 16 feet.
The moderate flood stage is 20
feet and major is anything over
22 feet. It would take 28.1 feet
to reach the U.S. 17 bridge
roadbed at Zolfo Springs.
The highest ever recorded at
Zolfo Springs is 25.05 feet in
September 1933. It has reached
over 22 feet only five times, the
last following the 2004 hurri-
canes, when it crested at 22.42
feet.
It's not just the river's crest to
worry about, though. Roadways
along creeks, rivers, swollen
swales and other low places
may create flooded roads.
Emergency Management Di-
rector Jill Newman and Acting
Fire Chief Bob Clayton agree.
The motto is "turn around,
don't drown."
There have been numerous
reports throughout the state' of

Crash Claims Woman


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 68-year-old Wauchula
woman was killed Friday in an
early-morning crash, the Flor-
ida Highway Patrol has report-
ed.
Veronica Ann Abundis suf-
fered fatal injuries when her
2005 Chevrolet Malibu was
struck by a 1999 Freightliner
tractor-trailer at the intersection
of U.S. 17 and REA Road, crash
investigator Tpr. M. Hathcock
and homicide investigator Cpl.
D. Brewer said.


The'driver of the semi, Emil
Diaz, 42, of Miami, was not
injured in the collision, the
troopers said.
Abundis, however, was trans-
ported to Florida Hospital Wau-
chula, where she was pro-
nounced dead, becoming the
fifth person to die on Hardee
County roadways so far this
year.
The crash occurred at 1:05
a.m.
According to the FHP report,
Abundis was traveling west-
bound on REA Road, approach-


ing the traffic stoplight at U.S.
17. She crossed into the inter-
section, the troopers said, and
into the path of the semi, which
was northbound on U.S. 17 at
the time.
The front bumper of the
Freightliner collided with the
driver's side of the Chevrolet,
the FHP said. The entire dri-
ver's side was damaged in the
crash, troopers added.
The crash remains under
active investigation, the FHP
noted. No charges have yet to
be filed.

Kelly's Column
By Jim


Congratulations to retired baseball pitcher Roger Clemens for
receiving innocent verdicts on his charges of lying to Congress
when he said he never used steroids or human growth hormone. He
maintained and won his innocence despite a lengthy and expensive
prosecution by the U.S. Justice Department.
Clemens pitched for the Boston Red Sox and the New York
Yankees and won seven Cy Young Awards in his long career. An
overpowering fastball pitcher who intimidated hitters, Clemens
deserves to be elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame soon.

Congratulations for the 10-week return of the TV series
"Dallas" that began June 13 on TNT. Dallas received top ratings on
the show that ran from 1978 to 1991.
The three top stars return-Larry Hagman as J.R. Ewing, 80;
his brother Patrick Duffy as Bobby, 63; and J.R.'s wife, Linda
Gray, 71, who is Sue Ellen.
Hagman received a liver transplant over 10 years ago and has
recently had cancer treatment. His motto is "Don't worry, be
happy."

Congratulations to the jury that found former Penn State assis-
tant football coach Jerry Sandusk\ guili\ olf sexually abusing
young boys. I hope the victims can overcome their abuse and lead
good normal lives.

Congratulations to the Miami Heat for winning the NBA title
over Oklahoma City. The Heat have some great basketball players.

Congratulations to the Arizona Wildcats and head coach Andy
Lopez for winning the baseball College World Series. The coach
also won a CWS in 1986 with Pepperdine. He was also a winning
head baseball coach for several years at University of Florida.

pocket of deep water, lost con-
trol or hydroplaned and were
involved in a fatal accident.
Clayton and Newman both said
Tuesday that it is dangerous to
drive through water which
crosses the road. Ten inches,
even as little as six inches. of
running water can sweep a car
away.
Clayton said the last few days
have been a good hurricane
drill. There have been warning
notices issued by Emergency
Management, Fire-Rescue, the
Sheriff's Office and municipal
police. Folks should keep tuned
and aware of them.
Clayton noted emergency
personnel don't respond when
sustained winds are 45 mph or
higher. "That is why they closed
the Skyway Bridge; winds were
clocked at 51 mph, which can
move vehicles, especially high
ones like fire trucks or semis.
When there are heavy gusts of
wind and heavy downpours, if
you don't have to be on the
roadway, wait until it passes,"
cautioned Clayton.
One report focused on a tor-
nado which touched down on
Manuel Road outside Bowling
Green on Sunday afternoon.
According to the National
Weather Service, it began about
eight miles southwest of Zolfo
Springs and cut a path 100
yards wide the entire 15.6 miles
to where it hit with an estimated
peak wind of 75-80 mph.
The homeowners where it
touched down were not home at
the time, but a damaged barn
and few uprooted orange trees
were the worst effects. Some
sporadic damages to groves
along the route and an over-
turned tractor were, also report-
ed.
There have been no road clo-
sures, around the county, reports
the local public works depart-
ment. There was one tree
removed from a road and three
stop signs blown down, but oth-
erwise county roads are unaf-
fected and open, staff said. A
few people have picked up sand
bags and more are available,
they added.

Earlier this month school bus monitor Karen Klein, 68, grand-
mother of eight, was bullied in Rochester, New York, by four male
seventh graders. The several-minute verbal attack of insults, pro-
fanity and threats was video recorded and went viral on YouTube.
The bullying caused her to shed tears.
She does not want to press charges but does want the parents
to talk to the boys about being "a little more respectful." Earlier
this year the White House held a conference on bullying preven-
tion, estimating it affects 13 million students. President Obama was
quoted by AP as saying he hoped to "dispel the myth that bullying
is just a harmless rite of passage or an inevitable part of growing
up. It's not."
The Washington Post late Monday reported 29,000'individuals
have donated over $650,000 to grandma Klein so she can go on
vacation or even retire.
Congratulations to America for the generous response and
hopefully the four boys will learn a lifelong valuable lesson from
this unfortunate incident.
The AP reported in September that Jamey Rodemeyer, 14, who
lived not far from Rochester, killed himself after complaining
about being bullied over his sexuality. Pop singer Lady Gaga said
she would take her concerns about bullying to President Obama.

Rev. Jim Harris, pastor of Riverview Heights Missionary
Paptist Church, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club Tuesday
about the U.S. Constitution, framed in 1787 by Benjamin Franklin,
Thomas Jefferson, James Madison and others.
Harris said the Constitution was based on Biblical principles
from the Old Testament. He quoted Proverbs 29:2-"When the
righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when the wicked
rule, the people mourn."
He said the U.S: has a republican form of government, not a
true democracy.
The U.S. Constitution gives the right to govern people, recog-
nizes but does not grant rights, and cannot amend or change natu-
ral law, which is the only reliable basis for sound government.
Harris said it is necessary for free people to remain virtuous
and moral. The best way to remain a virtuous and morally strong
people is to elect virtuous and morally strong leaders, he said.
The false aristocracies of Europe were based on money and
heredity. Without religion, the government of a free people cannot
be maintained, he said.

Tropical Storm Debby by Tuesday afternoon had brought
seven to nine inches of rain in Hardee County. Peace River and
other streams are out of their banks.

Special To The Herald-Advocate
Not everyone has a green bac

Florida is a peninsula, with tl
longest coastline of all the states
continental United States. Most
Florida's nearly 19 million resid
live less than 60 miles from the
Atlantic Ocean or the Gulf of
Mexico, making the beach,
sand and salt water their
backyardss.'"'
So let's go on a summer
backyard beach safari!
Begin your treasure hunt by
shelling. Take a walk along the
water's edge, and you'll discover
dreds of varieties of shells hurle
the beach by waves that roll or c
onto the shore.
Seashells were once living or
isms. The shell is the hard, prote
outer part of an animal, usually
lusk. Mollusks are animals like
snails, clams and oysters. These
tures make their own shell. Whe
animal dies or gets eaten by ano
creature, the empty shell stays e
becomes a home to,other sea cri
like hermit crabs.
Shelling provides hours of fu
looking for that one-of-a-kind, c
treasure. Before you keep a shel
sure there is nothing living in it.
Otherwise you need a special lic

Sometimes you don't need to dig
because incoming waves will unearth

When I think of famous women
who have paved the way for me
I don't ever go too far
I look at my family.

My grandmother has been on TV
And made the daily news
She made the right decision
SWhen it came time to choose.

She led me by example
with everything she did
Whether the problem was small
or very %ery big.

Emmerjean Patricia Webb
"Patsy" to those she loves
She saved many lives
through the nursing job she did.

I know all the good in me
was passed from her to me
She was always showing
Just how good I can change and be.

Mrs. Vanilla Bean (also known as Principal Sonja Bennett), "The Hot Fudge" (AKA
Coach Ray Rivas) and Mrs. Caramel Crunch (Assistant Principal Jessica Gray) all
recently suited up to become human ice-cream sundaes. The event at Wauchula
Elementary School was a result of students there earning more than $8,000 profit at the
annual Go Take a Hike Walkathon. The top fundraisers from each grade level took the
honors of topping off the human sundaes during the school's Top Cat ceremony. There
was an assortment of ice cream, syrup, whipped cream and cherries, of course.
Earning the sweet privilege were (from left) Ayrica Baker, Gavin Sharp, Casen Gough,
Katelynn Bolin, Katie Camacho and Carson Monts de Oca.

Rodeo Bits

I


MANATEE COUNTY RANCH RODEO
First: I owe an apology to Charles Robert Stevens III and his
Stevens Land & Cattle team (consisting of Charles Robert, Billy
Adams, Marshall Godsey, Carson Storey, and substitute female
teanr member Christi Pryor). When I listed the teams that the Fat
Daddy's Lil Cowpokes youth team beat, I included Stevens Land,
when in fact they placed second, and therefore beat the youths. I
believe that this was their second time in second place but in the
FCA finals race, second place just isn't cutting it this season!
And I have learned that M&N Cattle was actually awarded
third place, since the youth team is not eligible for Florida
Cattlemen's Association events (as the rules require all team mem-
bers to be at least 18 years of age). This team is made up of Peck
Harris, Josh Brown, Matt Smith, Cody Robinson, and female team
member'Christy Newsome (the N of M&N Cattle).
OK, now that my faux pr"' are addressed, on to the actual
events!
The first event was team sorting. This was won by the JTF
Performance Teams with a time of 29.58 seconds, with team mem-
bers Jimmy Fussell, together with son Jamie and nephew Robert,
honorary family member Brandon Dieter, and joined by Mandy
Cantu. Tamme Miller Fussell was helping with the pickup work,
but did not want to worsen an injury, so she relinquished her bran-
der's running duties to Mandy.
Right on their heels was the Stevens Land team, with a time of
30.63 seconds, followed by M&N Cattle with 41.39 seconds, then
SMR with 47.40 seconds. Also finishing with a time was Audubon
Ranch in 1:43.80. Carlton Ranches receiVed a no-time, as the
calves crossed the line out of order.'
Roping and branding was the second event. Thd SMR team
took this one with a time of 28.91 seconds. Hardee County's. team
members were Luke Cantu and William Perry, together with hus-
band-and-wife Stevie and Lindsay John and Dusty Crosby.
Audubon Ranch was right on their heels with a time of 32.80 sec-
onds, then Stevens Land in at 46.71 seconds, followed closely by
Carlton Ranches with 48.19 seconds and M& N Cattle at 48.37.sec-
onds. The JTF Performance Horses team had some difficulty, but
brought home a time of 1:23.48. (And for those teams that caught
the calf in the vicinity of the branding circle, he women thank you

- they never do that for you, do they Tamme?)
We then moved on to the third event, team doctoring. This
requires the calf be headed and heeled, then the ropes have to be
removed, and the "doctor" (usually the female team member), has
to mark the calf's head with chalk. Stevens Land completed this
with an awesome time of 20.38 seconds. The only other team with
a time was SMR, in at 45.15 seconds plus a five-second penalty for
only catching one hind leg.
The Carlton Ranches had a rough day, with Dale Carlton once
again on his back with a bovine either on top of him or running him
over! Other team members were sister Millie Bolin (with hubby
Todd cheering them on), Matt Carlton, Trae Adams and Jason
Hanchey lending a helping hand. They had'a no-time in this event,
as they failed to catch the calf (there is a limit of three loops total
in this event). Also receiving no-times were Audubon Ranch (with
team members 'Jay Belflower, Dennis Carlton. Jr., Pat Thomas,
female team member Dallas Roberts and Clay Banks) and JTF
Performance Horses. M&N Cattle completed this event, but
received a no-time as the chalk failed to mark on the calf's head.
More next time!

ARMADILLOS
Gus Callaway Edwards, attorney and major developer of
Cocoa Beach, has left his mark on Hardee County and else-
where. -'if unintentionally so.
In order to attract attention to his real-estate offerings, he built
a little zoo, charging 15 cents for folks to gawk at some Floridian
deer and snakes: Added to that were some "exotic" armadillos that
he had picked up in Texas.
In 1924, the exotics escaped and went native.
If this story is true, we thank you, Mr. Edwards. We love how
armadillos dig up our ground!
Dasypus novemcinctus the "nine-belted rough-foot," to use
the vernacular is the only species of "turtle-rabbits" to emigrate
to North America, where they are too easily confused with their
lesser-belted cousins, some of which can roll up in a ball. Nine-bel-
ters can't do that. They jump straight up in the air when they are
scared, right into the grills of oncoming cars!
During the Great Depression, the "little armored ones" joined
rabbits and hares in the category "Hoover hogs." One ate what one
could in those days. But we might add that it is to our great regret
that these invaders, food or not food, were not instead their close
relatives, the anteaters. Oh, how we could have used them!
Armadillos and anteaters are both members of the superorder
Xenarthra, including the giant sloths and glyptodonts of yore who
made the trek north, but who-died off in North America, some
10,000 years ago.
No mistaking a glyptodont. It looked a great deal like the
horny-shelled descendants we know, only much, much bigger -
about the size and weight of a small car, paleozoologists tell us.
Volkswagen Beetles. Can't imagine them jumping straight ip
in the air!
Peace River Explorations is a non-profit citizens'organization cre-
ated to promote and grow a "clean industry" in Hardee County,
tourism. It markets the county's historical .and natural assets,
including fossil hunting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, horseback,
riding and more. Volunteers will be needed to man the visitor's cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Wauchula Train Depot.

Problems with Sheriffs Budget Part 1 of4

Sheriff'Lanier is still refusing to release the 2011-12 and 2012-1-3 line-item budgets to me which means that
you and I cannot see where or how he is spending our tax-payer money. However, I was able to get a copy
of the aggregate budget (total monetary figures for main categories with no explanation). I wonder why he is
not being transparent with the line-item budget. What'information does he want so desperately to hide from
public view? Well here are several troublesome issues that he has listed on the aggregate budgets for 2011-12
and 2012-13:
* "Salary Incentive" is compensation to those deputies who have successfully completed specialized training
and college education. The $23,820 should come from the State, not from our local funds. There may be a
reason for it, but the sheriff isn't talking...
* The sheriff tells his troops that there is no money available to increase their pay, but hisproposed budget
went up nearly $115,000 under "Salaries." Are the administrators getting raises at the expense of the
deputies on the front lines? There may be a reason fEr it, but the sheriff isn't talking...
* The cost of "Health & Life" benefits for the employees went down a staggering $222,000 or approximately
25%. Is the sheriff cutting necessary health benefits at the expense of his employees? There may be a reason
Sfor it, but the sheriff isn't talking...
* There is a proposed increase of nearly 18% (from $28,000 to $35,000) for "Telephone" costs associated
with land-line phone service. We are in an era where most plans include local and long-distance calling.
Who exactly is he calling so much and why is it.so expensive? That $35,0000 expense can be used to put
another deputy on the street or into the jail. There may be a reason for it, but the sheriff isn't talking...
* There is an expense category in the law enforcement budget titled, "Other Obligations." The sheriff lists this
expense at $60,000. What exactly are these "Other Obligations" and who is getting the money? There may
I|MI ....... be a reason for it, but the sheriff isn't talking...
: Is this what you want from your elected sheriff? Do you want more of the phrase
S'_- "Ihere may be.a reason for it, but the sheriff isn't talking..." or do you want a sheriff
that is open, honest, and transparent? Do you want a sheriff that will open his books
Sfor public review and who will be accountable for every tax-payer dollar ? If you want
transparency and accountability...

Vote Santarlas(R for Sheriff

You can get a copy of the sheriffs aggregate budget and see for yourself.

Full Ban Of Tobacco At


Schools/Events Sought


By THERESA COLLINS-
HILL
Community Health Educator
While smoking is banned
inside school buildings, not all
school districts restrict smoking
and tobacco use on all of their
.properties or at school events.
Hardee is one of those coun-
ties.
The Hardee Tobacco Preven-
tion Team is busy educating the
local School Board, community
organizations, law enforcement
agencies and concerned citizens
about the need for a compre-
hensive tobacco-free policy to
be in place.
This policy, which has been
passed by nine other school dis-
tricts and is being considered by
dozens of other counties, cre-
ates a safe and healthy environ-
ment for students, faculty and
staff.
The importance of de-nor-
malizing tobacco use through
positive role modeling cannot
be overlooked. If students don't
see teachers, coaches, faculty
and visitors using tobacco, then
they will be less likely to think
that tobacco is acceptable, and
will be less likely to start using
it.
Nine out of 10 current smok-


ers started when -they were
teenagers. Here in Florida,
more than 22,800 kids under 18
become new cigarette smokers
each year.
A "100% Tobacco-Free"
school prohibits all tobacco use
anytime, anywhere by anyone
on all school property and at all
school-sponsored events. This
includes buildings, grounds,
vehicles, sporting events,
dances and other activities held
on and off school property.
By passing and implement-
ing this tobacco-free policy,
local schools will send a clear
message to young people here
that tobacco use is not accept-
able.
Top Reasons Why Hardee
Schools Should Be Tobacco-
Free:
1.) Shows a firm commit-
ment by school administration,
teachers and parents to prohibit
tobacco and become positive
role models.
2.) Anti-tobacco classroom
education, prohibiting student
athletes' use of tobacco prod-
ucts by coaches, and prevention
messages displayed in 'hallways
and on bulletin boards are rein-
forced with this policy. Chil-
dren get a mixed message if


they step outside their class-
rooms and view students and/or
teachers using tobacco on
school grounds.
3.) Dangers of secondhand
smoke are eliminated. Children
exposed to secondhand smoke
are more likely to have lung
problems, ear infectioAs and
severe asthma. Even passing by
an outdoor smoking area can
trigger an asthma attack for
some students.
4.) Protects children from
developing an addiction to a
dangerous drug. The U.S. Food
S& Drug Administration classi-
fies nicotine as a drug. School
policies do not allow the use of
other drugs on school grounds
or at school events. Why should
an exception be made for nico-
tine and tobacco?
Please support the Hardee
County School Board as it
makes its considerations re-
garding this important policy.
For more information, con-
tact the local tobacco preven-
tion team at the Hardee County
Health Department at 773-
4161, extension 148, or the
Florida QuitLine at 1-800-U

4B The Herald-Advocate, June 28, 2012


Greetings from Fort Green!
We humans are never satis-
fied; a few weeks ago it was to
dry and we needed rain. Now
that it has rained for two or
three days, we are saying we are
tired of this rain! We all need to
do what the Apostle Paul said
when he said be content. Now,
that is paraphrased because
there was more to it than just
that!
This announcement is way in
advance, but so many things get
planned around the same time
every year so mark your calen-
dar: the 4-H BBQ will be Nov.
10. This is where you buy tick-
ets from a 4-H member and
then drive through the Cow-
belle area and pick up your
meal.
'Jordan Chancey had a sur-
prise. birthday party, and his
mother told him they were
going to his sister Kimberly's
home for a party for her daugh-
ter, Megan, who had made a 4
on her FCAT. Jordan was not
enthused, but I thought it a good
way to get him there and when
he arrived, he was very sur-
prised as he was the guest of
honor! He is now a teenager
and turned 13!
David Godwin turned 16 a
couple of weeks ago, but to date
I have not seen him driving. It
should not be to long as this is
one of the first things a 16-year-
old desires.
On highway 62 you pass
Doris and Jack's home a little
way past Center Hill Road.
They have sunflowers planted
between the rows of orange
trees in their front yard and they
are very pretty. I was fortunate
to grow sunflowers that were
taller than I could reach, and the
flower was the size of a nice
dinner plate. The red birds
would sit on the flower and eat
the seeds. It was a pretty sight.
Jean Wilson had surgery last
week, as did Gary Oden. Broth-
er Steve was at the hospital with
Gary and Ginny when he saw
Brad Wilson, who was. there
with his mother. Pray for both
of them and Jean got some good
news. Hopefully the surgery
performed on Gary is a com-
plete success. I love it when
husband aid wife dress in the


same color shirts, etc. A couple
of Sunday. ago Ginny had on a
pretty yellow blouse and, you
guessed it, Gary had on a yel-
low T-shirt! They did look
spiffy!
There were two interesting
letters in last week's Herald.
One about going home that dis-
cussed the Downing family and
one by Charlotte Albritton
Truitt that listed all the things
regarding their ancestors and all
the history that they would be
telling the new baby. If you
haven't thrown that paper away,
get it out and I feel sure you will
enjoy both the articles.
John, Carol, Hannah and
Holly Brown enjoyed a trip to
DeFuniak Springs and then on
to Tennessee to visit with Mat-
thew and family. They enjoyed
all the sights in Tennessee and
then on the way home stopped
by DeFuniak Springs and
picked up Beka and Aaron
Brown to spend a few days with
their other grandma and grand-
pa, Randy and Faye Davis.
Faye and Randy are going to
her appointment at Mayo Clinic
in Jacksonville. Faye said noth-
ing was going to be done at this
time, because she was going to
enjoy her grandchildren.
I really expected to see the
number of Republicans listed in
the paper changed, but it was-
n't. I changed over to a Repub-
lican last Wednesday. I have
been a Democrat for 57 years
and even though was listed as
Democrat, I always voted the
person rather than ,the party.
There are some races I wanted
to vote in Aug. 14, so I just
changed! Voting is very impor-
tant and since I turned 18 and
registered to vote, regardless of
where I lived, I never missed
voting in an election.
There are lots of Wauchula
people in the local hospital or
that is what the doctor told me.
I know Arthur Womack, Joan
Wells and Ms. Mildred are still
there. Please pray for them and
all the sick.
It's hard to believe, but if Kay
Silverman had not made his
final journey in 1990 he would
have turned 82 last Sunday!
Please pray for one another
and our nation -

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
The Lord is close to those
whose hearts are breaking;
He rescues those who are
humbly sorry for their sins.
The good man does not
escape all troubles he
has them too. But the Lord
helps in each and every one.
Psalm 31:18,19 (TLB)

FRIDAY
And Jesus said to him, "If
you canl All things are possi-
ble to him who believes."
Immediately, the father of the
child cried out, and said, "I
believe; help my unbelief."
Mark 9:23-24 (RSV)

SATURDAY
God says, "For I have cho-
sen you and will not throw
you away. Don't be afraid,
for I am with you. Do not be
dismayed, for I am your
God. I will strengthen you. I
will help you. I will uphold
you with My victorious right
hand."
Isaiah 41:9b-10 (NLT)

SUNDAY
Do not live for money; be
content with what you have,
for God Himself has said, "I
will never leave you or desert
you"; and, so, we can take
courage and say, "The Lord
is my helper, I will not fear;
what can man do to me?"
Hebrews 13:5-6 (NEB)

MONDAY
After this happened, Samuel
took a stone and set it up
between Mizpah and Shen.
He named the stone Ebe-
nezer, saying, "Thus far the
Lord has helped us."
I Samuel 7:12 (NCV)

TUESDAY
As a general rule, it should
be taken for granted that any
Christian man or woman
who has a widow in the fam-
ily should do everything pos-
sible to help her.
I Timothy 5:16 (PME)

WEDNESDAY
I look up to the mountains;
does my help (strength)
come from mountains? No,
my strength (help) comes
from God, who made heav-
en and earth, and moun-
tains.
Psalm 121:1 (ME)

the United States senators C.O.
Andrews and Claude Pepper
that President Roosevelt had
approved WPA Project 10.681,
which calls for improvements
on county-owned farm-to-mar-
ket roads. The project is spon-
sored by the Hardee County
Board of County Commission-
ers. calling for a federal contri-
bution of S 12.777.
The attendance at the Lions
luncheon Wednesday noon was
well attended. The club singing
was led by Lion Ed Posy with
Mrs. E.R. Harman at the piano.
The fact that a heavier fall
planting would be witnessed in
Hardee County this year was
expressed by County Agent
H.L. Miller, who on Wednesday
morning stated that from all
indication there would be quite
a large increase in acreage.
A group of approximately 25
farmers of the Lemon Grove
section voted unanimously to
organize in a permanent club on
Monday night of last week.
50 YEARS AGO
The old Wauchula Infirmary,
completely remodeled and
modernized and boasting a new
name, will probably be opened
early in August, the owner, Dr.
Alfred S. Massam, announced
this week.

Plans are nearing completion
for the fifth annual Zolfo
Springs Fourth of July celebra-
tion. In past years, Zolfo's
Independence Day programs
have been hailed as the finest in
the area, and local citizens are
going all out to better their
.record this year.
The Wauchula Church of
Christ has purchased several
lots on Florida Avenue across
from the high school as a site
for a new sanctuary.
Hardee County can now
boast of being the home of the
winner of the state Future
Farmers of America quartet
competition.
25 YEARS AGO
Danny Driskell of Hardee
County has been invited to tour
\'ith the Continental Singers as
a member of their orchestra this
summer. The tour was original-
ly set for a trip across the
United States, then to Holland
and West Germany. There has
been a change of the tour
recently and Driskell will also
have a chance to tour Finland


and from then on to Russia and
a look behind the "Iron
Curtain."

As part of the nationwide fit-
ness campaign, the American
Physical Therapy Association
has released a series of tips for
Hardee County residents who
participate in fitness and sports-
related activities.
With just enough cash on
hand to meet this week's pay-
roll, Hardee Memorial Hospital
may have to borrow money to
meet the rest of July's financial
obligations, which total over
$150,000.
Hardee County commission-
ers voted unanimously last
week to amend the county zon-
ing ordinance to allow a prison
here, following the second and
final public hearing on the
issue.
Findlay Pate, center director
at the Ona Agricultural Re-
search Center, is recovering
from first-, second- and third-
degree burns.

10 YEARS AGO
The sweetheart of Hardee
County cattlemen has gone on
to win the state title. Jamie
Lynn Revell, 17, the daughter
of Jerry and Janie Revell of
Ona, was crowned 2002 Florida
Cattleman's Sweetheart last
week during the group's annual
convention at Marco Island.

How to Challenge Your Medical Bills
Dear Savvy Senior,
I need some help understanding my medical bills from my knee
replacement surgery earlier this year. My wife and I live on a pret-
ty tight budget so I like to keep track of our costs as closely as pos-
sible. But the bills I've received are vague and confusing, and we
think we're being overcharged. What can you tell us?
Trying To Recover
Dear Trying,
Errors and overcharging have become so commonplace on
medical bills today that double-checking them is a very smart move
that may save you some money. Here are some tips and tools that
can help.
Challenge Your Bills
According to the Medical Billing Advocates of America, nine
out of 10 hospital bills have errors on them, most of which are in
the hospital's favor. Bills from doctor's offices and labs have mis-
takes too, but they tend to be fewer and further apart.
To help you get a handle on your medical bills and check for
costly errors, the first thing you need to do is request an itemized
statement from the hospital or health care providers detailing the'
charges of the procedures, supplies, tests and services they provid-
ed you. They are legally required to provide you with this infor-
mation.
If the statement contains confusing billing codes or abbrevia-
tions that you don't understand, call the billing office for an expla-
nation. You can also look up most medical billing codes online by
going to any online search engine and typing in "CPT" followed by
the code number.
Once you receive and decode the statement, review it careful-
ly and keep your eyes peeled for these mistakes:
Double billing: Being charged twice for the same services,
drugs, or supplies.
Typos: Incorrect billing codes or dollar amounts.
Canceled work: Charging for a test your doctor ordered,
then canceled.

Phantom services: Being charged for services, test or treat-
ments that were never received.
Up-coding: Inflated charges for medications and supplies.
Incorrect length of stay: Most hospitals will charge for the
admission day, but not for day of discharge. Be sure you're not
paying for both.
Incorrect room charges: Being charged for a private room,
I even if you stayed in a semi-private room.
Inflated operating room fees: Being billed for more time
than was actually used. Compare the charge with your anesthesi-
ologist's records.
To make sure the charges on your bill are reasonably priced,
use the Healthcare Blue Book at healthcarebluebook.com. This is a
free resource that lets you look up the going rate of health care
costs in your area.
If you find errors or have questions about charges, contact
your provider's billing office and your insurer. If they don't help
you and the discrepancies are significant, you should consider get-
ting help from a trained professional who specializes in analyzing
medical bills and negotiates with health care providers, insurers
and even collection agencies.
Most medical bill reviewing professionals charge an hourly
fee -- somewhere between $50 and $200 per hour for their serv-
ices, or they may work on a contingency basis,.earning a commis-
sion of 25 percent to 35 percent of the amount they save you.
To find help, check out resources like Medical Billing
Advocates of America (billadvocates.com), MedReview Solutions
(medreviewsolutions.com), Hospital Bill Review (hospitalbillre-
view.com) and Medical Cost Advocate (medicalcostadvocate.-
com). You can find others by doing an Internet search under "hos-
pital bill review."
If you're a Medicare beneficiary, another resource that may
help is your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP).
They provide free personalized counseling and may be able to help
you get a handle on your medical bills and Medicare coverage, To
find a local SHIP counselor visit shiptalk.org, or call 800-677-
1116.

Week Ending: June 24, 2012
Rains, Rains, Rains
Weather Summary: Beneficial rains late in the week helped
improve the drought conditions. The week's rain helped reduce
wildfire risk across the State. Tropical Storm Debby brought sig-
nificant downpours and remains a stationary storm over Florida.
Various stations recorded over one to three inches of rain.for the
week. Rainfall totaled over four inches in Homestead, Live Oak,
Miami, North Port, and Okahumpk'a. Localities reporting over five
inches of rain included Balm, Frostproof, Lake Alfred, Ocklawaha,
and Sebring. Over six inches fell in Avalon, Bronson, and Dover.
Carrabelle and Citra received over seven inches of precipitation.
Temperatures at the major stations were four degrees below normal
to one degree below normal. In 7.: sacola, Tallahassee, and West
Palm Beach temperatures stayed near normal. Daytime highs were
mostly in the upper 80s and low 90s. Evening lows were in the 60s
and 70s.
Field Crops: The continuous rainfall raised soil moisture sup-
plies across the State. Recent rainfall helped aid field crops that
were recently planted in the Panhandle and northern Peninsula.
'Irrigated and non-irrigated field crops were reported in mostly
good condition across the State. Peanut condition was rated 3 per-
cent poor, 24 percent fair, 60 percent good, and 13 percent excel-
lent with 34 percent pegged. Fieldwork was active and growers
continued spraying in Washington County.
Fruits & Vegetables: Heavy rains curtailed most picking with
growers harvesting supplies for the July 4th holiday demand. Okra
harvesting continued in Miami-Dade County. Tomato harvesting
remained active in the Quincy area with supplies declining season-
ally. Growers marketed avocados, cantaloupes, mangoes, and
tomatoes.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture conditions
ranged from very poor to excellent. The condition of the pasture
varied within each area depending on recent precipitation. In many
locations, the drought did not break until midweek. The condition
of the cattle ranged from very poor to excellent, with most in fair
or good condition. In the Panhandle, pastures were in very poor to
excellent condition with most fair or good. The threat of foliage
feeders was a concern. The cattle condition was poor to excellent,
with most in good condition. In the northern area, most pastures
were in fair to good condition, while 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 excellent condition, with
most rated poor or fair. Some Bradford County pastures had stand-
ing water, and Hernando, Citrus and Sumter counties pastures were
underwater due to rain from TS Debbie. In the southwestern areas
of Florida, the pasture conditions were very poor to excellent, with
most fair or good. Pastures looked good with much more green and
taller grass. The condition of the cattle ranged from poor to excel-
lent, with most in fair or good condition.
Citrus: Daily high temperatures remained in the low to mid
90s across the citrus region. The arrival of Tropical Storm Debby
this past weekend ensured that all FAWN stations in the citrus
growing region recorded some precipitation this week, with
Brooksville receiving the most at 10.12 inches (9.16 of that fell
Sunday, due to TS Debbie). Twenty-two stations received more
than tvo inches..Fort Pierce recorded the least precipitation, with
1.27 inches. Drought conditions continued o improve, over the
whole of the citrus region, as per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last
updated June 19, 2012. As late orange harvesting was drawing to a
close, young tree care and grove maintenance were the primary
grove activities.

2 Local Students Take Science International!


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
In a fast-moving society with
worlds of problems, two local
high school students have ap-
plied their interests to take
action and pursue scientific dis-
covery.
Students within Rob Beatty's
science classes at the high
school are required to partici-
pate in a science fair as part of
their final grade. The experi-
ment must be designed using
the scientific method, and it
must have a life application.
Not only did one freshman and
one sophomore fulfill that
requirement, they went on to
attend the Intel International
Science & Engineering Fair,
this year held in Pittsburg, Pa.
Sixteen-year-old. Brandon
Beatty, the son of Robert and
Diane Beatty of Wauchula, sub-
mitted his work within the
microbiology category. His
question was, "Does extract
from Opunita ssp (Prickly Pear
Cactus) inhibit bacterial
-owth?" When he was first
.ven the assignment, unsure of
.'here to begin, he turned to his
backyard. Interested in cacti,
eatty began to research differ-
it elements and learned that
;e American Indians used cacti
o soothe wounds.
His next steps in discovery
included testing the original
cacti to determine if it held any
bacterial traits. Once he con-
cluded that it did not, he took
the extract from it and began to
add it with different types of
bacteria. Once the additional
step was taken, he determined
that bacteria, on average, will
not affect the growth of the cac-
tus.
Brandon's overall goal in
completing this project was car-
ried with the hopes of one day

Milli Jones used her visit to the water treatment plant as inspiration for a three-year
experiment. Locally she received special recognition and a $75 gift card to Barnes &
Noble.

turned to his backyard. Using-the prickly pear cactus as encouragement, he received
'ah honorable mention on a local level.


regions and territories to dis-
play their individual research.
While neither student placed,
they did both receive a medal-
lion for attending.
"It was the best feeling to
attend," Milli began. "I've
never traveled internationally
before, and it was interesting to
see how everyone dressed. This
experience was everything I
expected, and more."
Both students have a plan for
their future scientific endeav-
ors. Brandon plans to continue


his project and attend science
fairs next year. "I'm good at sci-
ence; I like it, although I'm not
quite sure what my future
holds," he said.
Milli has found her passion in
science and wants to have a
career in agricultural research.
She has a meeting planned with
the lead researcher at the
Institute of Food & Agricultural
Sciences Cattleman's Conven-
tion to help brainstorm and
determine where next year will
take her.

"I want to encourage every-
one to participate in a science
fair. I'm a cheerleader, I never
thought I'd fall for being a sci-

never know what you like if
you never try it. There will
always be a need for science, to
find a cure, begging for techno-
logical advances, being in a sci-
ence fair is a great way to start
finding your interests,".she con-
cluded.

SEEDS
FROM
w THE
SOWER



While visiting a factory with
a friend, he took me into the.
boiler room. I was impressed
with all of the different parts of
the boiler that were neces-
sary to make it work properly.
One of the most important
parts of the boiler was a glass
tube with water in it. I was told
that it was impossible to look
into the boiler to see how
much water was in it. How-
ever, it was possible to know
how much water was in the
boiler by looking at the
gauge. Whatever was in the
boiler would be registered by
the gauge.
What is true of the boiler is
true of the believer.
How much do we love
Christ? We can measure our
love for Him by the amount of
time we spend in reading the
Bible, talking with Him in
prayer and waiting on Him in
worship. We can also meas-
ure our love for Him by taking
an inventory of the amount of
time we invest in our service
to others who are in need.

NOTICE OF FINAL AGENCY ACTION BY
THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
Notice is given that the District's Final Agehcy Action is approval of the Water Use Permit.
on 60 acres to serve Citrus Grove known as Mclver 1. The project is located in DeSoto
County, Section(s) 6 Township 39 South, Range 24 East. The permit applicant is
James D. Brewer whose address is Post Office Box 400. Nocatee. FL 34268 The per-
mit No. is 20 010661.004 .
The file(s) pertaining to the project referred to above is available for inspection Monday
through Friday except for legal holidays, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Southwest Florida
Water Management District (District) 2379 Broad Street. Brooksville. FL 34604-6899.

NOTICE OF RIGHTS
Any person whose substantial interests are affected by the District's action regarding this
permit may request an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes (F.S.), and Chapter 28-106, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.),
of the Uniform Rules of Procedure. A request for hearing must (1) explain how the sub-
stantial interests of each person requesting the hearing will be affected by the District's
action, or final action; (2) state all material facts disputed by each person requesting the
hearing or state that there are no disputed facts; and (3) otherwise comply with Chapter
28-106, FA.C. A request for hearing must be filed with and received by the Agency Clerk
of the District at the District's Brooksville address, 2379 Broad Street, Brooksville, FL
34604-6899 within 21 days of publication of this notice (or within 14 days for an
Environmental Resource Permit with Proprietary Authorization for the use of Sovereign
Submerged Lands). Failure to file a request for hearing within this time period shall con-
stitute a waiver of any right such person may have to request a hearing under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the District's final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice of final agency action. Persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such final decision of the District on the application have the
right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above.
Mediation pursuant to Section 120.573, FS., to settle an administrative dispute
regarding the District's final action in this matter is not available prior to the filing of a
request for hearing.
