Commission Considers Gas Facility


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Nerald-Advocate
A public hearing today
(Thursday) at 8:30 a.m. could
allow zoning approval for a liq-
uid natural gas. facility in north-
west Hardee County.
The issue for the Hardee
County Commission when. it
meets at Room 102, Courthouse
Annex 1, 412 W. Orange St.,
Wauchula, will only focus on a
Major Special Exception and its


Site development plan for the
proposed project.
The specifics, including
funding, will be addressed in
later hearings or development
orders. It will also require
approval by the federal
Department of Energy as well
as the state Environmental


Protection Agency, Southwest
Florida Water Management
District, Central Florida Re-
gional Planning Council and
other state and federal agencies.
The 486-acre site is.located at
the county's north end of CR
663 and shares its northern bor-
der with Polk County. It is


catty-corer from the Seminole
and Payne Creek power plant
complex, which along with
Vandolah Power and others
have natural gas storage tanks
on site.
The proposed liquid natural
gas facility would be located in
the middle of the 486-acre site,


which is an area of A-I
(Agricultural I lands with a
mining overlay). Although this
project is on reclaimed land
mined by Mosaic many years
ago, adjacent land uses are min-
ing and mine lands presently
under some stage of reclama-
tion.


Since 1996, the area has had
an industrial future land use
designation, which allows min-
ing; converting or .processing of
raw materials; the manufacture,
assembly, production or repair
of durable goods; warehousing
or storage operations; distribu-
tion and shipment of cargo; and
corporate functions in associa-
tion with industrial operations.

City Police


Chief Retires

Served Wauchula For 19 Years


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
"This is the right time for my
family( and I to begin a new
chapter in our lives."
Wauchula Police Chief
William C. Beattie officially
announced his upcoming retire-
ment on Monday in a letter to.
City Manager, TerTy ,Atchley
and the Wauchula City Com-
mission.
He will close 19 years of
service to the city and an over-
25-year career in law enforce-
ment on Oct. 1. He was a lieu-
tenant for the first seven years
with the city, selected as the
new chief in August 1999.

Sheriff's Budget Down


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
As usual, the Hardee Coun-
ty's Sheriff's Office is the first
to submit its budget to the
Hardee County Commission.
As one of the five constitu-
tional (elected) officials, Sheriff
Arnold Lanier provided his
2012-13 proposed budget well
before the June 1 deadline. The
Clerk of Courts B. Hugh
Bradley, Tax Assessor Kathy
Crawford, Tax Collector Ze-
relda "Zee" Smith and Super-
visor of Elections Jeff Ussery
will have theirs in shortly.
The commission will start its
annual budget process on July
16 and take as many days as
necessary to resolve all budget
issues.
All constitutional officers
provide a generalized budget
for each of the divisions under
its auspices. For instance, the


Tax Collector's Office has re-
cently picked up driver's
license renewals and approvals
in addition to its other duties.
Lanier has kept to a minimum
budget, actually $108,641 less
that the budget for the current
fiscal year. In his cover letter to
the commission, he reminds it
that the budget has remained an
average of, $7.3 million for the
past four to five years as he has
tried to cooperate with the com-
mission in difficult economic
times.
The commission incorporates
the constitutional officers' bud-
gets into the overall county
budget, but has little say in
demanding adjustments to the
budgets. Most often, these
come from the state offices
which review proposed budg-
ets of constitutional officers.
Lanier says his proposed
budget is one that "is reason-


able and necessary for the prop-
er and efficient' operation of the
Hardee County.Sheriff's Office.
.. we will continue to work
closely with the Board through-
out these economic downturns,
however, please remember that
during these times my-office
still has the unique responsibili-
ty to protect the property and
lives of the citizens of Hardee
County."
The Sheriff's proposed budg-
et is divided into three cate-
gories: law enforcement, in-
cluding investigations; correc-
tions; and civil, which includes
bailiffs for courthouse and
courtroom security.
The jail no longer houses fed-
eral inmates, as a new federal
facility has opened. Hardee still

ties. Inmates contribute to some

assumed more and more over-
sight of the department, will

"Everything will run as it has;

15-officer full-time staff,"
Harris said. The 2009 graduate
of the FBI National Academy
"will continue to oversee every-
thing done here, just be a bit
more extensive," continued
Harris on Tuesday morning.

mission at next Monday night's

File Next Week


For Open ZS Seat


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Candidates are being sought
to fill an open slot on the Zolfo
Springs Town Commission.
A one-week qualifying period
for potential candidates opens
on Monday at 8 a.m. and con-
tinues through Friday, July 13,
at 4 p.m.
A special election will be
held on Monday, July 30.
The need for a special elec-
tion was prompted by the June
18 resignation of Rhonda Long.
Long held Seat 3 on the five-
member municipal board. Her
term was not due to expire for
2-1/2 more years.


Anyone wanting to fill the
vacancy created by Long's
early departure can pick up a
qualifying packet in the clerk's
office at Town Hall, 3210 U.S.
17S.
The process is a fairly simple
one, requiring candidates to
open a campaign account at a
bank, to take a loyalty oath, and
to complete a short financial
interests statement.
Candidates for town office
must be at least 18 years of age,
have resided within town limits
for a minimum of six months,
and must be registered to vote
there.

Peace River Valley Citrus Growers


WEATHER, WATER SLIDES & WONDER
Summer in the citrus industry harvest is over, growers and
their families are enjoying vacations and the industry runs at a
slower pace. This summer has already proved to be a challenge for
grove caretaking and for family summer vacations.
After nearly a week of rain and strong winds, the Florida cit-
rus industry will, again, be full speed ahead as growers try to catch
up on caretaking practices they were unable to complete because of
the wind and,rain. Rain totals around the area ranged from three to
nearly eight inches within the five-county territory of the Peace
River Valley Citrus Growers Association, with growers from all
counties reporting similar totals and rain patterns.
The much-needed rain will improve growers' bottom lines, as
they do not have to irrigate during rain cycles. Drought conditions
persisted making irrigation costs rise and tree health decline. The
rains were welcome and surely needed, but may come as a mixed
blessing as the summer progresses.
We can see Citrus Canker, a bacterial disease that loves warm,
windy, rainy conditions, start to increase in prevalence in the com-
ing months because recent weather conditions have surely moved
the disease around the industry.

In June, growers congregated at the Citrus Conference in
Bonita Springs to attend meetings, educational sessions and meet
with key industry and political leaders. Nearly 700 growers attend-
ed the conference, with many Hardee County growers present.
Most growers were able to take their families, who enjoyed the
lazy river and pool waterslides at'the beautiful Coconut Point Hyatt
Regency.
During the conference growers learned more about the pro-
gram plans for the Florida Department of Citrus in advertising
orange juice and the coinciding tax rates they will be charged to
pay for the programs. Processed orange taxes will most likely be
set at $.23 per box when the final budget is set in October. The
Florida Department of Citrus is the only department of state for a
Florida commodity, and is paid for through citrus grower taxation,
not state general revenue.
All of the local state legislators attended the conference and
were available for growers. State Sen. J.D. Alexander, chair of the
committee; State Rep. Denise Grimsley, chair, of the House
Appropriations Committee; and State Rep. Ben Albritton, a Hardee
Countian and Agriculture & Natural Resources Committee mem-
ber, were joined by Rep. Steve Crisafulli, chair of the Agriculture
& Natural Resources Committee; Commissioner of Agriculture &
Consumer Services Adam Putnam; U.S. Congressman Tom
Rooney; and Gov. Rick Scott. This powerful group has proven to
be friends of Florida agriculture.
Growers will get back to grove duties in the coming weeks as
they turn their focus back to caretaking practices to strengthen and
protect trees as they produce next year's crop. The U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, processors and other private companies will
begin counting the small fruit on the tree to prepare next year's
crop estimate. The official USDA estimate will be announced in
October, preceded by several .private estimates normally an-
nounced in mid-August.
SGrowers are already. speculating about the coming year's crop
size, and most anticipate a smaller crop. As the estimates are
announced, they will continue to wonder and speculate regarding
the final crop size until the harvest is finished and so the crop.

Week Ending: Julv 1.2012
Fruits & Vegetables: In Gadsden County, the tomato harvest
was coming to a close. The. preparations for the planting of fall
tomatoes were moving forward. The watermelon crop in Washing-
ton County was looking good; however gummy stem blight was
present in a few fields. In Miami-Dade County, avocado and man-
goes were going to market. St. Lucie County crops needed more
rainfall. '

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition was
mostly good. Grass growth was limited in several central and nor-
thern locations due to flooding. Some Panhandle and central loca-
tions suffered from drought. High temperatures took a toll on the
pasture condition: The condition of the cattle ranged from poor to
.excellent with most in good condition. In the Panhandle, pastures
were in very poor to excellent condition with most fair. The threat
of foliage feeders was a concern. Some pastures in Wakulla County
had standing water. Also, weeds aggressively grew with recent
rains. The cattle condition was mostly good. In the northern areas,
the condition of most pastures and cattle were good. In Baker and
Duval counties, pastures were affected by flood waters and water
saturation. In central areas, the pastures were in very poor to excel-
lent condition with most rated good. In Alachua County, the grass
improved after the rains:'The cattle condition was poor to excellent
with most in good condition. In the southwestern areas, the pasture
conditions were very poor to excellent with drought the limiting
factor to grass growth. Water levels in stock ponds remain well
below normal despite recent rains. The condition of the cattle
ranged from poor to excellent, with most in good condition.

Citrus: Daily high temperatures remained in the low to mid-
90s across the citrus region. All FAWN stations in the citrus grow-
ing region recorded some precipitation this week, with Putnam
Hall receiving the most at 6.20 inches (6.08 of that fell on Monday
due to Tropical Storm Debby). Fifteen stations received more than
two inches. Fort Pierce recorded the least precipitation with 0.16 of
an inch. The majority of the citrus region was drought free, with the
exception of an area extending from the north shore of Lake
Okeechobee southwest to the gulf coast of Collier County which is
still experiencing abnormally dry conditions, as per the U.S.
Drought Monitor, last updated June 26, 2012. As late orange har-
vesting is drawing to.a close, fertilizer application, summer oil
spraying, young tree care anid grove maintenance were the primary
grove activities..

County Considering Landfill


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
For the past 12 years the
county landfill has been charg-
ing the same $62.50 per ton for
tipping charges for waste dis-
posal.
It does not cover the operat-
ing costs and the deficit is sup-
plemented by general revenue
from ad valorem tax dollars.
Recent averages have the
landfill receiving 17,000 tons
per year, which generated
approximately $1 million in tip-
ping fees at $62.50 per ton.
Projected costs to operate the
landfill for the next 5 years
Average $1.63 million annually
and would need 20,000 tons at a
rate of $81.61 per ton to break
even, an approximately 31-per-
cent increase.
County Engineer Ken
Wheeler said maintaining the
existing landfill is the cheapest
option for waste disposal. He
said the county is required to
cover the garbage after every
day's work and have been using


soil in the past.
Wheeler said covering the
garbage with soil accounts for
about 20 percent of the volume
of the cell and causes its lifes-
pan to shorten. He proposed
using a tarp to cover the
garbage every night and remove
it the next morning to stack
more garbage. This method
should increase the life of each
cell by approximately 20 per-
cent, he said.
Wheeler also said spraying
water on top of the garbage will
speed up decomposition-similar
to a giant compost pile-causing
the waste to decompose faster
and extend the life of the cell.
This year, the county bor-
rowed $3.8 million for a 10-
acre cell that Wheeler expects
to last for 22 years. That could
be increased by up to 20 percent
by making his recommended
changes.
Commission Chairman
Minor Bryant said past boards
have looked into other alterna-
tives to the landfill and could


not find one. "We looked at a
regional landfill and that wasn't
popular, we looked at an incin-
erator and that didn't work and
we looked at hauling it to
another landfill and that cost
too much," he said.
Bryant said in the past he has
tried to get the boards to raise
the tipping fee incrementally
but commissioners never
would. He suggested raising the
rates as the only choice the
commission has other than con-
tinuing to subsidize the landfill
out of the county's general
fund.
"This is an election year but if
you can't sit on this board and
make decisions that are unpop-
ular, then you need to get off
this board," Bryant said.
The board told Wheeler and
Finance Director Janice
Williamson to estimate what the
breakeven point will be and
bring a recommendation back
to the board.
In other action the commission:

Work on the hookups has not

the work will be completed.

urges residents to turn off the
irrigation timer when there is
sufficient rainfall.
There is a 30-30 rule for new
lawns and plants, 30 minutes a
day for up to 30 days. For the
second 30 days; watering is
,allowed three days; per week.
Hand-watering or micro-irriga-
tion of plants can be done at any
time.
People are asked to check
their irrigation systems for bro-
ken pipes and leaks, damaged
or tilted sprinkler heads and
rain sensors. A broken or leaky
faucet or sprinkler can use over
30 gallons of water a day. When
washing cars or pressure wash-
ing, use of a shut-off nozzle is
recommended. -
Awater use calculator can be
found at www.swfwmd.state.us
or WaterMatters.org/restrictions
Other water conservation tips
include rinsing vegetables or
fruits in a pan of water and then
using the water for household
plants.
District officials say while


Debby provided increased rain-
fall to the region, it was not
enough to fully recover from
the long-term drought condi-
tions.
The most- recent aquifer
resource update said the aquifer
levels in the week ending June
22 decreased from 0.94 of a
foot to 0.72. By that date in
2011, aquifer levels' in the
South region were -2.29. The
normal range is 0 to 8 feet.
Rainfall in Hardee County for
June was 9.5 inches as recorded
at the University of Florida
.Cattle Range Station outside
Ona. That places the county and
region at an estimated dozen
inches so far this year, while the
historic average January to June
is nearly 14 inches.
Historic annual. rainfall for
the regional has varied for the
eight years from 62.65 inches in
2004 and 61.65 in 2005 to a low
of 38.53 in 2007. Last year's
total was 46.40 inches, much
less that the 52.39 historic aver-
age. which dates back to 1914.


Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where
there is no path and leave a trail.

Dear Editor:
While this letter is directed
toward those of the Christian
faith (followeis/servants of
Christ), the principles presented
apply to persons of all faiths.
Therefore, I'm asking all per-
sons to hold themselves and
each other accountable for the
universal principles addressed
here.
Christians believe that the
Bible is truth inspired words
from God. I want to remind
Christians about 2 Timothy
2:15 17a, "Do your best to
present yourself to God as one
approved, a workman who has
no need to be ashamed, rightly
handling the word of truth.
Avoid such godless chatter, for
it will lead people into more
and more ungodliness and their
talk will eat its way like gan-
grene," (RSV).
Instead, Christians must, and
people of other faiths should,


talk and act according to
Ephesians 4:29, "Do not use
hateful words, but only helpful
words, the kind that build up
and provide what is needed, so
that what you say will do good
to those who hear you," (TEV).
Words reveal character.
Therefore, good words are to be
chosen over hateful words.
Good words build up persons;
whereas, hateful words tear
down.
Hateful words and godless
chatter are destructive for any
culture whether it is Christian-
ity, Judaism, Islam, Secular
Humanism, or whatever.
STherefore, please, Christians,
and you of other faiths, hold
yourselves and those who prac-
tice hateful and endless verbal
battles accountable for the sake
of our society as a whole.

Great-Ape Center Adds 2 Residents Center Earns Top


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
Many Americans will recog-
nize the name of these popular
animals: Bubbles, Bam Barn
and Tango. They are orangutans
that have spent a good portion
of their lives in show business.
However cute at a young age,
they quickly grew and became
too strong to work with hu-
mans, forcing their retirement
and the need for a new home.
The Center for Great Apes in
Wauchula has taken on that
responsibility for 19 years,
adopting and caring for those
left and forgotten prodigies.
Although the center is known
for taking in ex-entertainment
great alpes, it also will provide a
home for those who have been
in research labs or released as a
pet.
Being only one of 10 sanctu-
aries in North America and with
15 orangutans in total, this local


center houses more than any
other facility in the United
States. And acting on an emer-
gency back in January, the cen-
ter has added two members to
its facility.
These orangutans were
housed at the Great Ape Trust
of Iowa, a scientific research
center that conducts cognitive
studies but would now be
focusing on another type of
great ape. Since the transition of
the study, a new home was
needed for Popi, age 41, and
Allie, age 17.
For many years previous,
Popi was owned by the circus
until a public outcry developed
over evidence of physical abuse
by her trainer. She was then
acquired by a California com-
pany that used animals for films
and TV shows. For over a
decade she was in show busi-
ness until the Great Ape Trust
of Iowa provided a home for

her.
Allie was originally born at
the Yerkes Primate Research
Laboratory in Atlanta before
moving, as an infant, to the
Denver Zoo with her mother. At
the age of 6, Allie's mother died
and shortly after Allie devel-
oped an unrelated illness which
left her handicapped, paralyzed
from the waist down. She can-
not use her legs for walking but
instead pulls herself along with
her arms. Already caring for a
chimpanzee with cerebral palsy
and an orangutan without arms,
the center has the experience,
staff and equipment to care for
Allie.
Currently Popi and Allie are
living in a new night house
while the center raises the addi-
tional funds needed to complete
their new habitats. With a goal
of $230,000, the center only has
$53,000 of funding left to earn
in order to fully accommodate


the newest additions.
Although money is needed
the most, by either donating
online 'or sending a check
through the mail, there also is a
"wish list" of desired supplies
for the great apes as well.
Center Executive Director Patti
Ragan commented that volun-
teers are needed as well, but
must go through training first.,
"It takes a determined team
to do this, from our board mem-
bers and caregivers to our vol-
unteers and donors. It is
because of their support and the
support of the members that we
are able to protect these incred-
ible apes," said Ragan.
For any additional informa-
tion. on the two newest mem-.
bers, giving donations or to
become a volunteer or member,
visit www.CenterforGreat-
Apes.org. The address for dona-
tions is P.O. Box 488 Wauchula,
FL33873.


COURTESY PHOTOS
Due to their emergency rescue, two new habitats are still
being built to accommodate the recently adopted orang-
utans. At a young age Allie suffered from an illness mak-
ing her paralyzed from the waist down. While she can't
use her legs for walking, donated fire hoses can be seen
for Allie to pull herself around the enclosure.

: Charity Ranking
anty,


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
F&r The Herald-Advoate
Despite a time of economic
despair, more than $290 billion
was given through individual
donations to non-profit organi-
zations in 2010.
A local non-profit organiza-
tion has earned a share of such
generosity, as it recently was
awarded a four-star ranking by
Charity Navigator, for the sec-
ond year.
The Center for Great Apes in
Wauchula was founded in 1993
and provides a permanent sanc-
tuary for orangutans and chim-
panzees that have been retired
and rescued from the. entertain-
ment industry, research labs, or
from owners who can no longer
care for their pets.
Charity Navigator is an inde-
pendent, non-profit organiza-
tion that-evaluates American
charities .to help potential
donors make an educated con-
trbtition and .access relevant
information before dqing so.
Charities 'cannot ask for a
review. They a4e done solely at
the request of donors. And once
a request has been received, it is
a year-long process before a
"review is released. Charity
Navigator :evaliates finances,

Only 25 percent of charities
that are .reviewed receive the
highest ranking. Each charity

ing the Center for. Great Apes,

was given so based on the
strength of its finances, control
of administrative and fund-rais-
ing expenses, and the trans-
parency of its operations.
Overall, the Center for Great
Apes was given a numerical
score of 61.65 out of a possible
70; financially, it scored higher
and only missed three marks on
a list of 17 under the accounta-
bility and transparency catego-
ry.
"We are really proud to have
earned the four-star rating
again," founder.Patti Ragan
said. "We are dedicated to pro-
viding the most enriching, safe
and healthy sanctuary possible
for the orangutans and chim-
panzees we have rescued."
In addition to receiving a top
rating from this organization
which evaluates the worthiness
of charities for potential con-
tributors, the local center was
also recently named "Charity of
the Week" and appeared in an
article in "PuLSe," the Liiinean
Society of London's magazine.
The Linnean Society was
formed over 200 years ago and
is dedicated to the science of
natural history.
The charity's rank couldn't
have come at a better time,
Ragan noted, as the center is
currently in the process of rais-
ing the remaining funds needed
for the construction of two new
habitats to accommodate- two
recently rescued orangutans
from Iowa.

A MOUSE IN THE MUSEUM?
In an attempt to make the museum fun and interesting for chil-
Sdren and young people, I've decided to introduce a character that
will be visiting the museum from time to time his name is
MUrray the Museum Mouse.
Murray is a small white mouse that lives in the museum and
scurries around at night exploring and discovering fun and inter-
esting things in the museum. Murray hides during the day, but if
you look closely, you just might get a glimpse of him the next time
you are in the Museum!
From time to time Murray the Museum Mouse will be telling
of his great adventures through "Museum Matters." Hopefully,
Murray the Museum Mouse will expand into a children's book and
be available for purchase at the museum.
Until then, let me introduce Murray the Museum Mouse:


My name is Murray,-
And I am a mouse -
I live in a museum,
Not in a house!
1icamper around,
Mostly at night -
b1ring the day,
Might cause a fright!


I like the museum,
There's so much to see -
But I explore at night,
So no one sees me!
Why I scare people,
I really don't know -
I'm cute and cuddly,
Don't you think so?


Be sure to stop in soon for a visit the museum is a great
summertime activity! And, while you're here exploring all our
wonderful treasures from the past, you just might see Murray the
Museum Mouse hiding somewhere within the Cracker Trail
Museum at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs.
You never know where Murray will be hiding! Happy hunting!

Congratulations to the Hardee County Builders Association for
organizing the fireworks display the evening of July Fourth at
Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. There were no traditional fireworks
last year due to lack of funding.
Builders Association President Benny Hash announced the fol-
lowing contributors for the cause: Mosaic, CF Industries, Vandolah

Hardee County's tax roll grew slightly for 2012 after declining
for the past four years, Property Appraiser Kathy Crawford told the
Wauchula Lions Club last Thursday at the Java Cafe.
The new tax roll is $1.518 billion, which means one mill of
taxes will bring in $1.518 million.
Hardee is unlike most other counties in that over half of our
tax roll is tangible property such as business equipment such as
draglines, power turbines, computers; furniture, supplies, etc.
Less than half of our tax roll is from real estate values such as
buildings, land and fences. A small amount of our tax roll is called
centrally assessed, such as railroad equipment.
A large amount of Hardee's tax roll is from the county's three
power generating plants and the phosphate industry.
Crawford reported the following taxable values in recent
years:
2012-$1.518 billion
2011-$1.474 billion
2010-$1.536 billion
2009-$1.612 billion
2008--$1.613 billion
2007-$1.69 billion
2006-$1.45 billion
2005-$1.29 billion
2004-$1.3 billion
Congratulations to Charlie Brown Jr., a 2011 graduate of Avon
Park High School and president of the 16,000-member Florida
Future Farmers of America. He is an African-American and plans
to attend the University of Florida and major in food and resource
economics. The future could include law school and serving in
public office.
In 2010 Brown was selected president of Boys Nation, a lead-
ership program sponsored by the American Legion. He has met
with President Barack Obama in Washington, D.C.
His parents divorced when he was 8, and he was forced to rely
on' his own initiative apd self-reliance. He sometimes cooked for
his sister when his mother worked late.
Brown is featured in the current issue of Farm Bureau's
Florida Agriculture magazine.

JOIN THE CLUB ... THE DOVE CLUB!
To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but
spending quality time outdoors with friends and family. One of the
best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is one reason
why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to
find.
That's why the Fish & Wildlife Commission created its
Special-Opportunity Dove Club Program to offer hunters the
chance of experiencing exceptional dove hunting on the state's best
public dove fields.
Dove Club permits enable one adult and one child under 16 to
hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits
cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds.
There are eight hunts on all but one of the selected dove fields -
Caravelle Ranch has six and all hunts are from noon until sun-
set and take place on Saturdays, starting Oct. 6 and ending Jan. 5.
Last year, 1,421 birds were harvested from six fields. This coming
season, there again will be six special-opportunity dove fields scat-
tered throughout the state from which to choose.
One of the fields is on Allapattah Flats Public Small-Game
Hunting Area in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen
Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. Participants
last year took an average of nearly six birds per hunter, per day,
harvesting 601 birds!
North Newberry, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club per-
mits on its 40 acres. That field produced 135 doves for nearly a
two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average.
Another field, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has a 200-
acre dove field with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season,
73 doves were harvested there.
The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, in
Lake County, has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 58
acres. Hunters there last season took 107 doves.
Frog Pond North, in Miami-Dade County, has been a top producer
in past years, and 201 birds were taken there last season, for near-
ly a two-birds-per-hunter, per-day average. Fifteen Dove Club per-
mits are available to hunt its 50 acres.
The remaining special-opportunity dove field is Koon Farm in
Lafayette County. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to
hunt on its 40 acres. Hunters took 304 birds there last season for
nearly a five-birds-per-hunter, per-day average.
Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during
Phase I. That application period runs through July 11.
After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to
MyFWC.com/License and clicking on "Limited Entry/Quota
Hunts," you can apply for these season passes by filling out a sin-
gle worksheet'(with up to five dove field choices) and turning it in
at any county tax collector's office, license agent or by going
oriline to License.MyFWC.com.
During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one
dove field.
If you are successful in getting drawn, you must pick up and
pay for your Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned
above by July 31. Check for drawing results in mid-July at
MyFWC.com/License, again by clicking "Limited Entry/Quota
Hunts." Any applicant who provides an e-mail address will be noti-
fied by the FWC by e-mail if drawn.
So, if you'd like to join the FWC's Dove Club, you need to try
to do so right away!

people. She enjoyed working for J.W. Crews and was amazed at
how smart his son Bill Crews is.
She was a close friend for 20 years or more to Ben Whitaker,
who sold imported German barbed wire and loved to fish. He did
not like to clean fish and always gave them away. He fished most-
ly for freshwater bass.
Odell also loves living in America, the garden spot of the
world, and believes a great woman is behind every successful man.
She likes George Washington Carver who developed many uses for
peanuts.
I think Hardee Correctional Institution is doing a good job.
They have a lot of inmates (about 1,900) and a lot of employees
(389). About 50 percent live in Hardee County.
HCI has about 60 inmates a year receive their G.E.D. There
are many classes and self-help programs available. There are nine
gardens that total 7 acres. HCI serves 5,900 meals a day. Some 84
percent of inmates work. HCI has 15 work squads with a total of

76 inmates who work 2,592 hours of community service weekly.
HCI has a great woodworking shop that produces 500 toys for
needy children and recently created 700 decoys for an endangered
bird species project. HCI has helped build 20 homes in the last five
years for Habitat For Humanity.
HCI opened in April 1991 and is located along State.Rd. 62
west of Fort Green.
The Florida Department of Corrections has a $2.1 billion
budget with 25,000 employees and 100,572 inmates. TVs are
donated. Prisoners serve an average of 86 percent of their seri-
tences. The is no air-conditioning for state inmates except for the
few privately run facilities. There are 182 Hardee Countians in the
state prison system.
Ages of inmates at HCI are from 18 to 86. Some 580 inmates
are serving life sentences at HCI.
Some day 90 percent of Florida prisoners will be released. Last
year 68 were released back into Hardee County.
The current prison budget statewide is about the same as six
years ago, and the number of inmates has increased about 21,000.
About 31,000 inmates are released a year. Prisoners are
released with $50 and a bus ticket. The recidivism rate has fallen
from 33 to 30 percent (going back to prison within three years).
They are usually caught on their third offense.
There are libraries and regular church services available. Over
200 volunteers help inmates at HCI.
The goal is to continue improving the quality and quantity of
"correcting" so released inmates have the best chance of success
when leaving the correctional facilities.
David Lawrence is warden of HCI and has a fine staff. Public
safety is No. 1. There have been no escapes from HCI. One inmate
walked off from a work squad in Tampa and was apprehended six
hours later, without injury.

8A The Herald-Advocate, July 5, 2012


Greetings from Fort Green!
Most of the extra water
around Fort Green has already
dried in, but the creek still has
water running in it. I really hate
it when the water is down to a
trickle.
Mike Davis told me he
caught a hundred specs over a
three-day period in Istokpoga
recently. The last time I had to
watch the number I was catch-
ing was so long ago I don't even
remember the year! Back then
the limit was 25 per person in a
boat. My normal catch is zero to
maybe three!
Clay Samuels won two tro-
phies recently at Sun City in
golf tournaments, a first and
second place. He is always win-
ning in racing, so with his golf-
ing, too, itis possible we have
another Arnold Palmer or Dale
Jr. in our midst! Congratula-
tions, Clay!
Tom and Sharon Lynn made
it home safe from their short
vacation. They were in Ar-
kansas when they got the news
that son William Porter was in
trouble and having to take
chemo and radiation. Keep Wil-
liam in your prayers.
Arthur Womack and Mildred
Cooper are both still in the
Wauchula hospital. Maxine ad-
vised she was going to have
another knee surgery soon, so
Arthur is going to have to get
well! Arthur's son, Art, visited
with his dad for several days
but has returned to his home in
California.
Bert Milligan is in the Wau-
chula hospital and Bert has
some tales to tell. He served one
and half years on the front lines
in World War II. He said while


over there his dad passed away
at the young age of 48. He said
his back and legs hurt, possibly
from the war.
There are not many left who
know what all went on during
WWII; it is history that is being
lost. They knew what they were
fighting for and the nation
backed them. Other history that
is being lost is the history of old
buildings in the county. Arden
and Sam Rawls celebrated their
53rd wedding anniversary re-
cently and Arden said they were
the last couple married in the
old church at Fort Green. She
said Billy and' Joan Revell
Grimsley were the first to be
married in the new sanctuary,
which is the one we use now.
I'm sure there are not records
but it would be interesting to
know how many weddings have
been conducted in our church
and different ones in the county.
While I was at the hospital I
saw Ada Ayers. She used to
work in the dietary department
for Hardee Memorial when I
worked there and could make
delicious big biscuits. She said
she had been there 40 years and
had not made a biscuit in a long
time. There were some good
cooks back then, and a Mrs.
Shoffner could make good
bread pudding with a delicious
sauce over it. It's amazing how
many good memories are asso-
ciated with food!
Gwen Albritton celebrated a
birthday on June 29. Her daugh-
ters, Donna Chancey and Sheri
Himrod, took her shopping in
Lakeland and then out for din-
ner. They had a good time and
Gwen is wearing some cute
new clothes! It is good to have


ANGLER AWARDS
I.. Have,you ever heard-of an.,angler-who doesn't want to brag
about a big-catch? OK- so fisherml.en ve beeTn"own to exagger-
ate al)it a "..
The big one that got away has become synonymous with "a
fish story," but we want to hear yours.
Since 1953, the Fish & Wildlife Commission has sought to
help anglers document their big catches and to give them official
bragging rights. First, a "fishing citation" program ran from 1953-
1976. The actual "Big Catch Angler Recognition Program" began
in 1990.
The objectives were to recognize anglers, encourage appropri-
ate catch-and-release, and collect informal data on where big fish
were being caught to share with other anglers.
Since 1990, more than 7,500 Big Catch certificates have been
issued that's almost one per day.
Awards were and still are a full-color, frame-able certificate
with the Duane Raver.image of the appropriate species, plus a win-
dow decal for adults and a three-inch pin/button for youth. The
Master and Elite certificates were based on the "Go Fishing" large-
mouth bass conservation tag..
This month, another upgrade to the program has taken place.
In addition to traditional paper submissions, a new mobile-friendly
Internet reporting system is available to the public,.so anglers can
submit their catches and photos electronically as well as get reports
on when and where freshwater fishing is at its best.
Several changes in sizes and species, the new standards, took
effect the first of this month. Among the changes are new sizes for
Suwannee and shoal bass. Alligator gar, redfin pickerel and skip-
jack herring have been dropped. Yellow perch, Mayan cichlid and
jaguar guapote were added.
In addition, a new series of freshwater grand slams is being
added, including: Black Bass (for catching a largemouth, spotted,
shoal and Suwannee bass in the same year); Bream (for catching'
any four of bluegill, redear sunfish, spotted sunfish, warmouth,
redbreast sunfish or flier in one day); and Nonnative Fish (for
catching a butterfly peacock, Mayan cichlid and oscar in one day).
And in October, a fantastic new TrophyCatch program for anglers
who catch and release largemouth bass greater than eight pounds
will be added. Three different tiers will be recognized: The Lunker
Club (8.0-9.9 lbs), The Trophy Club (10.0-12.9 Ibs) and the Hall-
of-Fame Club (13 pounds and greater).
Anglers will be encouraged to follow catch-and-release guide-
lines for these big bass (8.0-12.9) and to document the catch with
a length, weight and series of photos prior to release.
By documenting verified catches of trophy bass and publiciz-
ing them Florida's bass fisheries will maintain worldwide promi-
nence. By using the data on when and where trophy bass are pro-
.duced, biologists can improve trophy-bass management via habitat
enhancement, regulation management, stocking or other means
that are proven to increase catch of trophy largemouth bass while
fostering a strong catch-and-release conservation ethic.

Message to Zolfo Springs & Limestone Residents

Should I be elected as your sheriff, I will address the following issues:

* Currently there is only ONE DEPUTY patrolling Zolfo Springs for 40 hours per week pursuant
to the sheriffs contract with the town. Who covers the town-limits after the 40-hour work week?
Do criminals stop committing crimes on the weekends and at night?

I will provide FOUR deputies per shift to patrol the Zolfo Springs / Limestone area. This can
easily be done by re-working the budget and allocating the existing funds more appropriately
to better serve YOU. There is also federal grant money available to hire more deputies. I am
a certified grant writer and will secure the funds necessary to achieve this goal.

* There is not enough law enforcement coverage at the corners of the county. Without an adequate level
of police presence, criminals have more opportunities to commit criminal acts. Response times are
too long and fuel costs increase while the deputies are driving back-and-forth.

I will create new patrol sectors and zones around the county such as, Sector 1: Zolfo Springs/
Limestone; Sector 2: Ona; Sector 3: Wauchula; Sector 4: Bowling Green. Each sector will be
assigned a certain number of deputies and they will stay in their assigned zones during their
tour of duty. This will reduce fuel costs, ensure rapid response times, and provide appropriate
law enforcement coverage for YOU!

* The sheriff command staff does not appear to be accessible to the community or encourage
administrative interaction with the residents and/or business owners.

I will immediately begin a Quarterly Town Hall Program where business owners and residents
meet with the sheriff, commanders and deputies to discuss law enforcement issues. I am going
to develop a partnership with the community in an effort to resolve the crime problem together.
My door will always be open to any person who needs to speak with me because I work for YOUI

* There are too many motor vehicles racing up-and-down our neighborhood streets which is hazardous
to the residents. The loud music from the cars has become a nuisance.

I will require our deputies to increase patrols in the neighborhoods and engage in traffic
enforcement throughout the town. They will also actively patrol the school bus stops and
school zones to ensure the safety of our children.

Help Me To Help You!

The' Bowling Green City
Commission on June 12

To develop the property the
first phase is for water supply.
Phase 2 would be layout design,
and Phase 3 will be construc-
tion, said Conerly.
The commission approved
the first reading of an ordinance
to amend the Land
Development Code by adding
"existing mobile home subdivi-
sion" as land use in R-3 zones

With Perry Knight and
Richard Barone absent from the
June 12 meeting, the commis-
sion voted 2-1 to adopt an inter-
local agreement with Hardee
County from storm debris man-
agement services. Woody
Caligan voted no, saying he
preferred the amended version
instead of the original county
version of the agreement, since
the hurricane season has started.
Caligan said the proposed
amended version was more
friendly to the city and noted
county help was slow after the
2004 hurricanes. Caligan
praised the phosphate mining
companies for quickly helping
the city after the hurricanes .of
Charley, Francis and Jeanne.
The commission appointed
city clerk Pan Northup to the
Hardee County Recreation
Council, The other city repre-
sentative is Jerry Conerly.
No action was taken on
approving a second reading of
an ordinance to rename Mason
Dixon Ave. to Bertha Fulse Ave.
Conerly said the county's 911
office would have to approve
any street name changes.
Conerly also said research
showed the city commission in
1994 approved resolution to
change a portion of Dixianna
Drive to Martin Luther King
Ave. and to rename a portion of
Mason Dixon Ave: to Doyle
ParkerAve. The name changes ,
never were made.
Wilfred Smith of the
Concerned Citizens group' in
the city said he favors a differ-
ent street being named .to honor
Berta Fulse, a long-time resi-
dent who recently died at age
104.
City attorney Gerald Buhr
suggested the city codify all
ordinances, and resolutions to
help prevent future problems.
The commission approved
closing Thomas Ave., which has
never been paved or used as a
street, as requested by Jerry
Johnson of 1045 West County
Line Rd. Thomas Ave. is next to.
his property, and a family mem-
ber plains to build a house there.
Buhr explained to Cecil
SGarner that ordinances carry
more weight than resolutions.
Conerly explained the city is
making needed water line
improvements in the city. A
recent water line break resulted
in a boil-water notice to nearby
residents. Jay and Julie Ellis,
'who live on Church Ave., said
they bought bottled water and
did not receive a notice that the
water was okay. They were told
the city will not reimburse their
cost of buying bottled water and
the city was working to com-
plete the improvements soon.
Asked to rank county EDA
grant requests, the commission
gave these priorities.

kept repeating this to him.
"I started to get worried,"
recalls Dr. Edelman, an endocri-

of medicine at the University of
California San Diego School of
Medicine. "But it soon became
clear that I'd have to learn to
control my diabetes if I wanted
to live a healthy, full life."

(TCOYD), a nonprofit organiza-
tion that holds conferences fea-
turing programs and resources
to help educate and empower
people with diabetes.
Dr. Edelman notes that it is
especially important for patients
to overcome the fear factor.
"Some of the biggest barriers
I've observed that prevent peo-
ple from controlling their dia-
betes are emotional ones," says
Dr. Edelman. Fear, misconcep-
tions and depression can be
powerful derailers of proper
care. While people are afraid of
complications, many also fear
what they'll find when they real-
ly examine their diabetes. Dr.
Edelman says that it's not
. uncommon for people to equate
blood sugar levels with their
own self-worth. These attitudes
can sometimes lead patients to
"forget" to get their lab tests or
to bring their log books or
meters to their doctor for re-
view."

Dr. Edelman also emphasizes
that regular blood glucose test-
ing is a critical part of good dia-
betes management. Testing pro-:
vides key insights that allow
patients and their health care
providers to adjust treatment as
necessary and to see how food
choices, activity and many
other factors affect blood sugar
levels throughout the day.
When treating highs and
lows, it's important to be proac-
tive in looking for root causes
in order to take steps to prevent
them in the future. "Otherwise,
if people just treat them in the
moment and move on, they can
get on a roller coaster of react-
ing to patterns of highs and
lows over and over again with-
out even realizing they may be
connected," he says.
Fortunately, advances in
blood glucose monitoring tech-
nology are making this easier.
The OneTouch VeriolQ Meter
with PatternAlert Technology is
the first meter to find patterns
of high and low blood sugar and
provide alerts right on the
screen. With every test, the
meter compares the current
result with previous results and
alerts the patient when it finds a
pattern. This enables the patient
'and their health care profession-
al to more easily recognize the
issue and take action to correct
potential problems.:
"This is particularly impor-
taht for people taking insulin
because they have the greatest
risk of experiencing low blood
sugar which canbe dangerous,"
explains Dr Edelman. "So iden-
tifying and correcting a devel-
oping pattern of low blood sug-
ars as early as possible is key."
Dr. Edelman offers other sug-
gestions for successful diabetes
management. He advises pa-
tients to talk to their doctor
about diet and exercise. He also
recommends taking notes be-'
tween visits about any concerns
patients may have, and he
encourages talking about other
factors, such as stress, that
could affect blood sugar levels.
"Managing diabetes is a
marathon, not a sprint," says Dr.

Unemployment



Renamed


Florida became the first state
in the nation to rebrand the
state's Unemployment Compen-
sation Benefits Program to the
new Reemployment Assistance
Program, beginning July 1.
The legislation which allows
for the name change focuses
attention on the true purpose of
the program: finding employ-
ment for Floridians, while also
providing more than $500 mil-
lion in tax relief to Florida busi-
nesses by reducing the unem-
ployment tax for employers.
House Bill 7027, which
passed during the 2012 Legis-
lative. Session, was signed by
Gov. Rick Scott on Mar 28. The
change emphasizes job search
activities and reemployment
services offered by Florida's
workforce partners to jobless
claimants receiving benefits.
Changing the name of the
program does NOT change
access to benefits provided by
the state of Florida or the feder-
al government.
*. Claimants will still be able
to access benefits and file their-
claim the same way as they did
previously, by going online at
www.floridajobs.org, 24 hours a
day, seven days a week.
The legislation does not fur-
ther extend benefit eligibility.
The goal is to better connect
job seekers with possible emc
ployment opportunities, ex-
plained- state Department of
Equal Opportunity Executive
Director Hunting F. Deutsch.
"This Program will help


enhance jobseekers' workforce
skills based on the current job
market and future workforce
needs."
Florida's businesses will see
much-needed tax relief thanks
to a reduction in the wage base
for calculating the unemploy-
ment tax paid by businesses,
which is reduced from $8,500
to $8,000 per worker. This
reduction is estimated to save
Florida businesses about $550
million over the next 18 months
and $800 million over the next
three years.
Other changes effective July
1,2012, include the Unemploy-
ment Appeals Commission
renamed as the Reemployment
Assistance Appeals Commis-
sion and required work searches
for claimants in rural counties
are reduced from five to three
per week.
Florida has thousands of job
openings in the state on the
Employ Florida Marketplace
where reemployment assistance
claimants can search for jobs,
create a profile and find numer-
ous job search resources.
In addition, claimants can
receive one-on-one assistance
from one of 24 Regional
Workforce Boards or nearly
100 One-Stop Career Centers
located throughout Florida.
More information is available at
www.employflorida.com or the
Reemployment Assistance Pro-
gram Hotline at 1-800-204-
2418 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
Monday through Friday.


How lovely to think that no one need wait a moment. We
can start now, start. slowly, changing the world. How
lovely that everyone, greatand small, can make a contri-
bution.

New Law Affects Student Athletes


SOFTBALL SCHOLARS


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A new state law effective last
Sunday will make student ath-
lete eligibility more stringent.
House Bill 1403 and a related
HB 291 make provision for
necessary or normal school
transfers and adds protections
for students suffering a concus-
sion.
The Flarida High School
Athletic Association has incor-
porated the new laws into the
interscholastic requirements.
The new laws make the schools,
principals and coaches respon-
sible to implement them.
All student athletes should
know the rules and how they
can affect their ability to partic-
ipate in sports, says a recent
FHSAA bulletin.
Transfers must be completed
prior to the beginning of the rel-
evant sports season and must be
approved on For EL6 by the
sceiving school's principal,
eclaring the student's eligibili-
y to FHSAA. The process in-
ludes verifying that a student
vas eligible to play sports when
ie/she left their previous
school.
While an investigation is
under way, students will remain
eligible unless he/she falsified
information or accepted a
promise of benefits. A school
that violates recruiting policies
may be required to play in a
higher classification.
There are penalties for coach-
es involved in a recruiting vio-
lation and knowingly allowing
an ineligible student to partici-
pate. Sanctions imposed on that
coach will follow him wherever
he works. A coach must reim-
burse the school for penalties
assessed for recruiting viola-
tions. The coach is entitled to


due process before decisions
are finalized.
Student appeals of eligibility
decisions must he made in time-
ly fashion, before the end of the
current season in that sport.
The FHSAA memo answered
questions most often asked
about the new law and recruit-
ing.
1) Can a student play for any
school he or she wants, while
attending another school. What
if his/her school doesn't offer a
sport, are they allowed to play
at another school?
Answer: That rules hasn't
changed. Students may play for
a school they are not attending
only if they are home-educated,
non-member private school stu-
dents, charter school or alterna-
tive/special school students.
Check the FSHAA bylaws and
Policy 6 on this.
2) Can coaches now recruit
students to attend their school
or play for their team?
Answer: Coaches or repre-
sentatives of a school's athletic
interests may not recruit stu-
dents. Just the opposite,
FHSAA can sanction coaches
who violate recruiting policies,
by suspension from inter-
scholastic activities and respon-
sibility for financial penalties
against the school.
3) So, may a student now
transfer to a school he or she
wants to attend and be automat-
ically eligible to participate.
Answer: Transfers have al-
ways been allowed,, but the
question is one of eligibility. A
student may transfer prior to the
season and be eligible. Trans-
ferring after the season begins
requires more documentation of
a full and complete move and
the circumstances or reasons for
a change of residency.

4) What summer activities
could affect a student-athlete?
Answer: Students may
change schools during the sum-
mer and maintain eligibility at
the new school, if there has
been no improper contact be-
fore the school transfer.
For instance, participation on
a travel team, club sport with
the school or coach of the
school to which he is planning
to enroll, before he has official-
ly withdrawn from the previous
school may cause ineligibility.
This includes an athletic activi-
ty organized, coached or super-
vised by a school employee,
athletic department staff mem-
ber of representative of the
receiving school's interests.
Registration, enrollment and
acceptance at a new school
must take place before the stu-
dent's summer participation in
activities in any way sponsored
by the receiving school.
Two other provisions, of the
new state law can affect stu-
dents.
One involves youth athletes
who suffer a concussion or head
injury or have been treated for a
heat-related illness. There is a
new FHSAA reporting form for
such injuries, which require
medical clearance before re-
turning to play. Parents need to
be advised of the nature and
risks of such illnesses or
injuries.
Another provision allows
non-member schools to play
against FHSAA-approved
schools. This particularly ap-
plies to schools joining the
Sunshine Independent Athletic
Association or the National
Federation of State High School
Associations.

Stubbornness does have
its helpful features. You
always know what you are
going to be thinking tomor-
row.

A girl said to her date, "If
you do not tell me that you
love me, I am going to hold
my breath until I pass out."
".Holding your breath may
be interesting," he said. "Be-
ing a doctor, I realize that if
you pass out it may be a
metabolic disorder. I suggest
Vitamin B6. You can take a
tablet or eat liver."
"I asked for love," sobbed
the girl, "and all I get is a pre-
scription for beef liver."
Everyone heeds love. It is
the greatest giftthe world has
ever known. It takes the un-
loved: and makes them be-
lieve they are loveable. It
takes the unacceptable and
mates them feel acceptable.
It brings respect to those who
have never been respected
the Source of love is'God.
The beginning of love is God.
And the end of love is God. It
is only as He reigns in our
hearts that His love will be re-
vealed in our lives. ,

deep and how endless is God's love for us! He can help us through.
the worst catastrophe when we believe in his omnipotence, As we
are drawn to the sea, may we be drawn to our houseof worship
so that tje power of His might and His Word will remain fresh in
our hearts and.minds, .

farm."
Once he mentioned the words
'"ork" and "farm," that led me to ask
about his work experience when he was
younger. He seemed eager to tell me
about everything he did. Sisto said, ."I
took care of a pool hall, I picked cotton,
I tied carrots and basically anything a
farm boy could do."
I decided to change gears a bit.and
ask about his family. When I asked,
"How was your family like," he had a
lot to say. He started by saying that his
dad went to prison for a while'byt did-
n't want to go into a lot of detail on it.
Then he stated that their mother left
them shortly after, which meant he and.
his four younger siblings Noe,
Ofelia, Isabell and his late brother
Junior had to live by themselves.
Sisto was the oldest, so he had to take
cAre of them.
Once I got all of that out of the way I
decided to get personal. I asked him
how he got to Florida, and all he could
say was that he moved here in 1950 and
lived in Myakka before Wauchula and
drove trucks for a living. When I asked
his friends when he was my age, he.
seemed a little forlorn, like he started to
miss the "old days," but he said, "Yeah,
I hung out with friends once in a
while."
I started to ask another question, but
he continued on saying that he liked to

fight; well, not.so much he "liked" it
just he always did it but.he never stole
anything except an orange one time
because his girlfriend, my great-grand-
mom, wanted one. He also stated that
he didn't have a bad record and had
only been in trouble twice.
I decided to ask when he got his first
car and when he got his license, and he
said he had a '39 Mercury when he was
about 12 years old and he got his
licence in 1950.
When I asked, "Did you date a lot,"
he had this to say, "Oh yeah, I dated
just about every day! I would go into a
store and by the time I got out, there
would be a girl waiting' on me in the
back seat! I almost ran a girl over who
was trying to get into my truck!" We
got a good laugh out of that.
I decided to end the intervieiv by
asking what:it was he wanted to be
growing u',p and he said he wanted to
be a soldier but didn't have the chance
because he had to help his family.
What I gained from this is that life
will throw many obstacles in your way
and it's up to you how you chose to
face them. You are the chooser of your
destiny. I am very grateful I had the
chance to experience this with my
great-grandfather.

since 1928, according to Jack
A. Brodhage, information and

Seventy-two students are

increased number of high profile

cases that we have investigated

and brought to justice. Throughout my term as.Sheriff, I havefelt

an increased ssed snse f pride in our deputtem communities as

well as deep appreciation for the citizens that we protect. I ap-

preciate the honor you have given me to serve you as your Sheriff.

I welcome this opportunity to better our community with great

humility.


We still face many challenges in Hardee County with the rise in

unemployment and loss of income to our citizens. These

conditions will always foretell an increase in crime and a

deterioration of the family. Within the Sheriff's office we have a

well-established culture of preventing the victimization of our

citizens. We are proud of the stewardship that wehave provided

the hardworking taxpayers :of HardeeiCounty. You may rest

assured that the deputies that are serving and protecting you are

of the high character and held to a high standard of accounta-

bility.



The people of Hardee County deserve a leader who exhibits the

integrity needed to confront injustice and defend the victims of

our community. I would be honored for the people of Hardee

County to choose me once again to be that leader. I appreciate

the support that our deputies have experienced in carrying out

our commitment to serve you. Please willow me to continue the

work we have started and continue to build culture of service

and integrity within our law enforcement community.


I would appreciate your vote in the upcoming election on August

14th. Thank you for your consideration.


Sincerely,







Arnold Lanier

ner outing in Sebring. Teachers Teresa Rosenberg, Cathy Tish, Alisha Evans, Candice
Riddle and Sheena Hays paid for the fun meal at Chili's restaurant for (front row, from

COURTESY PHOTOS
Thirty-four graduates of South Florida Community College's Associate Degree Nursing
program were honored in a traditional pinning ceremony June 14 in Avon Park. The
practice of pinning new graduates has been a U.S. nursing school tradition since 1916.
The pin is worn prominently on nurses' uniforms throughout their careers. One'story
of the ceremony's beginning goes back to 1883, when Queen Victoria awarded
Florence Nightingale the Royal Red Cross on St. George's Day for her service to the
sick and injured during the Crimean War. In turn, Nightingale later recognized her out-
standing nursing students by presenting them with a medal of excellence. Graduates
of this SFCC program become registered nurses by passing the National Council
Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. For the past five years, SFCC graduates
have a passing rate well above the national average of 86 percent.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
He who conceals his sins
does not prosper, but who-
ever confesses and re-
nounces them finds mercy.
Blessed is the man who
always fears (reveres) the
Lord, but he who hardens
his heart falls into trouble.
Proverbs 28:13-14 (NIV)

FRIDAY
(Jesus Said), "This is my
commandment: that you
love one another as I have
loved you. There is no
greater love than this that
a man should lay down His
life for His friends. You are
My friends if you do what I
tell you to do."
John 15:12-14 (PME)

SATURDAY
(The Lord says), "You have
been chosen to know Me,
believe in Me, and under-
stand that I alone am God.
There is no other god; there
never has been and never
will be. I am the Lord, and
there is no other Savior."
Isaiah 43:10b-11 (TLT)

SUNDAY
Let us then pursue the
things that make for peace
and build up the common
life.
Romans 14:19 (NEB)

MONDAY
So God created human
beings in His image. In the
image of God, He created
them. He created them male
and female. ... God looked
at everything He had made,
and it was very good.
Genesis 1:27,31 (NCV)

TUESDAY
Let us hold fast the confes-
sion of our hope without
wavering, for He who prom-
ised us is faithful, and let us
consider how to stir up one
another to love and good
works.
Hebrews 10:23-24 (RSV)

WEDNESDAY
Let us examine ourselves
instead, and repent and turn
again to the Lord. Let us lift
our hearts' and hands, to Him
in heaven; for we have
sinned. '3

SEEDS
FROM

SOWER


Constantine the Great is
credited with being the origi-
nator of the Easter Parade. It
began on the first Easter Sun-
day following his conversion.
On that day, he ordered the
members of his court to wear
their finest garments to honor
and celebrate the resurrec-
tion of Christ.
What will we wear for our
Easter garments this year?
New clothes covering an old
nature? Costly garments hid-
ing a deceitful heart? Chang-
ing our apparel will not
change our attitudes or our
actions.
When we walk with. the
Lord, He will make all things
new from the inside out. He is
able to change our old nature
into one of His making, a de-
ceitful heart into one devoted
to loving Him and our stale
thoughts into fresh new in-
sights into the way He wants
us to live.
When we turn our lives
over to the Lord, we will not
need to worry about what we
wear or where we walk in a
parade. We will be covered
with His grace, demonstrate
His goodness and reflect His
greatness wherever we are.
