Detectives allege children were
Splaying on the fields at the same
time drugs were sold, and possi-
bly while they were being

Bad Ad Delays Public


Hearing On Gas Project

County Commission Sets New Date Of Aug.,


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A public hearing on a pro-
posed liquid natural gas storage
facility in the northwest corner,
of the county has been post-
poned.
The Hardee County Com-
mission continued last-Thurs-
day's public hearing oi the mat-
,ter, which now %ill be heard at
8:30 a.m. during the Aug. 2
commission meeting.
Commissioners went through
the entire public hearing last
week before the ad for the
meeting was questioned. It was
a portion of a two-part ad
announcing the initial hearing
before the Planning & Zoning
Board and the subsequent com-
mission meeting.
SAttorney Ralf Brooks, repre-
senting the Paradise by the
Lakes sudivision and specifical-
ly Henr) Kuhlman of 5186
Ollie Roberts Road outside Fort
Green; said the ad did not clear-
ly state what this commission
hearing was about.
County attorney Ken Evers
suggested it would be better to
re-advertise it and continue it to
a date certain. It was first con-

meeting, but that would not

meet the two-week advertising
requirements, pushing it farther
out.
The only issue in the current
hearings' is whether the pro-
posed project meets zoning and
land use definitions for that
location.
The proposed site is 486
acres sharing a northern bound-
ary with the Polk County line.
Its west end is adjacent to CR
663, catty corner from the
Seminole and Payne Creek
power plants and just north of
the intersection of the Gulf-
stream and .Florida Gas; trans-
mission lines from which the
natural gas storage facility will
get its fuel.
The natural gas will be cryo-
genically frozen into liquid
form at -260 degrees and placed
in one of three 170-foot tall,
260-wide double-walled tanks
with a storage capacity of one
billion cubic feet or eight mil-


lion gallons. A fourth tank may
be added later.
There will be containment
berms completely around the
tank area, which fs in the center
of the huge property, and
between the taiks as well. The
containment berms are capable
of containing 110 percent of the
capacity of a tank. There, will be
a buffer of cypress or pines at
the property line off CR 663.
There will also be an off-load
trucking refueling station to
deliver the gas by truck to cus-

No Candidates Yet



For ZS Commission


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
So far, there are no candi-
dates to fill an open slot on the
Zolfo Springs Town Commis-
sion.
Such was the word late
Tuesday afternoon from Town
Clerk June Albritton, who did
say one individual has picked
up a qualifying packet, but has
yet to complete and return it.
The one-week qualifying
period for potential candidates
opened on Monday at 8 a.m.
and continues through this
Friday at 4 p.m.
A special election will be
held on Monday, July 30,
should enough candidates apply
to make a race.
The need for this 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 still has plenty


of time to pick up a qualifying
packet in the clerk's office at
Town Hall, 3210 U.S. 17 S.,
and complete it.
The process itself is a fairly
simple one, requiring candi-
dates to open a campaign ac-
count at abank, to take a loyal-
ty oath, and to fill out a short
financial-interests statement.
The qualifying fee is $54, or
potential candidates can get
their names placed on the ballot
by presenting petition signa-
tures from just six registered
voters.
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.
Town commissioners are paid'
$200 a month.
Whoever wins will join Juan
Otero, Lois Dandridge, DiDi
White and Sara Schofield at the
commission table. The Zolfo
Springs Town Commission
meets monthly.

The local celebration of Independence Day went off with a bang once again as the

in Zolfo Springs. The spectacular display presented aerial "stars and stripes forever" in
booming colors to many oohs and aahS from the crowd.




The Herald-Advocate Wins


3 Statewide Press Awards


The Herald-Advocate was
presented with three awards for
its reporting at the annual
Southeastern Press .Convention
held last week in Miramar
Beach.
The newspaper was the recip-
ient of two first-place prizes and
a third-place award in the
statewide 2011 Better Weekly
Newspaper Contest.
The contest was entered by 81
of Florida's weekly, bi-weekly
and tri-weekly newspapers.
Total entries amounted to 1,607.
. Judging the contest were the
press associations of New York,
Pennsylvania and Iowa.
In .the categories of General
News and Breaking News, The
Herald-Advocate took first
place in the state in its division.
For First Amendment Defense,
the newspaper won third-place
honors across all three divisions.
Awarded first place in the
state for General News was
Managing Editor Cynthia


Krahl's story headlined "Gov-
ernor Ousts City Commission-
ers."
Said a judge, "A newspaper's
primary mission is to be a
watchdog for the community.
Three cheers for a governor who
ousts city commissioners who
think of citizens as the great
unwashed violating Sunshine
Laws because they are above the
law. Citizens should be out-
raged. Three cheers for this
story!"
Garnering first place in the
state for Breaking News was
Michael Kelly's story headlined
"Fire Chief, EOC Head
Suspended."
Wrote a judge, "Story of
alleged sexual misconduct -
and its potential coverup by
the Fire-Rescue chief and head
of the office of emergency oper-
ations breaks late Tuesday. In
Wednesday's edition, the paper
has gotten its hands on the com-


plaint and, even more impres-
sive, has interviewed the two
men in question. Good work!"
And taking third place in the
state for First Amendment
Defense was Krahl's story
headlined "Clerk Errs On
,Public Information."
A judge 'noted, "A gotcha
story. The clerk should know
better. Worse, the clerk re-
mained stubbornly unregener-
ate despite the newspaper's
efforts to educate him."
The awards were received by
Kelly and Krahl at a luncheon
banquet ceremony concluding
the three-day convention, held
July 5-7 at the Sandestin Golf &
Beach Resort.
The Southeastern Press
Convention was attended by
Kelly, Krahl, Publisher Jim
Kelly and Sports Editor Joan
Seaman. It included newspa-
pers from Florida, Georgia,
Alabama, Mississippi and
Louisiana.

Making Play A Priority In

The Face Of Childhood Obesity


For generations, children
have enjoyed gliding through
the air on swings and going
down slides at their neighbor-
hood playground. Long before
the terms "BMI" and "trans fat"
were part of everyday speech,
kids would run out to the back-
yard or a local park to meet up
with friends for an afternoon of
fun..
For today's young children,
play isn't all just fun and games;
it is a fundamental need.
Studies indicate that a lack of
physical fitness is. one of the
biggest threats the nation is cur-
rently facing. In fact, according
to the Centers for Disease
Control (CDC), childhood obe-
sity. rates 'in America have
tripled over the past 'three
decades. Nearly one in every
three children in the nation is
overweight or obese. This fact
leads Jto a startling reality: F6r
the firsi time in U.S. history,
childien'will"nt live as long as
their parents. '
Playing outdoors with other
children has been shown to ben-
efit every aspect of a child's
wellness and development, not
just weight control. Playground

S most frequently asked questions
High school guidance coun-

: "How can I make my admis-'

In addition to, high school

la can help students customize
d their applications by providing
Sclleges and universities with
an even more complete picture
S of their acad6eic skills.
Students take nearly 1 million

i- because these one-hour ach-
e- ievement tests can help high-

d. ;'school subjects. Twenty differ-
s- erit SAT Subject Tests are cur-

hi dents consider taking the SAT
as Subject Tests in their strongest

ie gf Bristol High School in
Bristol, Pennsylvania. "I inform


them that I earned two full
tuition scholarships when I
graduated high school ... and
both universities cited my SAT
Subject Test performance in
chemistry on my acceptance
and scholarship letters."
With the national demand for
STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering and Math) majors
rising, college admissions offi-
cers, value the SAT Subject
Tests as valid and reliable stan-
dardized measures of achieve-
ment in high school biology,
chemistry and physics.
"We select candidates from a
talented pool of applicants, and
SAT SubjectTests help us better
understand a student's prepara-

lum," said Jarrid Whitney, exec-
utive director of admissions and
financial aid at the California
Institute of Technology (Cal-

If students are interested in a
particular major in college, SAT
Subject Tests can help them
demonstrate their skill in a
given subject and their passion
and enthusiasm for a particular


field of study. Many colleges
and universities 'require SAT
Subject Tests for specific
majors or programs, while near-
ly all institutions will review
SAT Subject Test scores as part
of a student's admissions pack-
et. Some colleges even use
them to place students out of
introductory-level' courses,
which may save students time
and tuition money.

The $800 million project will

increase property and tangible

Helping Teachers
To Make A
'P&sfive hnpact'
,..,Wile summer is often a time
when students and parents enjoy
their vacation, it can also be a
time for teachers to go back to
school.
That's because summer is a
key time for'many professional
development programs tat are
designed to help teacher me
the ever-changing demands/of
the classroom.
For example, ASCD-o e of
the leading providers of rofes-
sional development p ograms
for teachers-hosts a ber of
conferences and /institutes
around the country to improve
the efficacy of ed ators.
At these gatherings, thou-
sands of educa ors are exposed
to ideas, techniques and strate-
gies desig ed to improve
teacher effectiveness and sup-
port the success of each learner.
Making An Impact
Typically, topics covered at
these events will range from
techniques for improving class-
room performance to strategies
for implementing high-quality
curriculum. Many believe that
what makes these programs
stand out is that they have a real
impact on educators who partic-...
ipate and, ultimately, their stu-
dents.
Accordmg to a recent study
by Scholastic, 85 percent of
educators said good profession-
al development programs had
either a very strong or strong
impact on student achievement.
A Focus on Development
In addition to conferences
and institutes,ASCD also offers
a variety of in-person and
online professional develop-
ment resources for educators of-
all levels.These books, courses,
videos and more aid teachers in
the never-ending effort to meet
the needs of today's diverse and
evolving student population.
Promoting Best Practices
Founded in 1943, ASCD (for-
merly the Association for Su-
pervision and Curriculum De-
velopment) is an educational
leadership organization dedicat-
ed to advancing the best prac-
tices and policies for the sic-'
cess of each learner.
The theme of this year's sum-
mer conference in St. Louis,
.Mo., is "Revolutionizing the
Way We Teach and Learn." The
topics addressed at this event
will include 21st Century
Learning Skills, Classroom
lInstruction That Works, Effec-
tive Teacher Supervision, and
Professional Development and
Bullying Prevention.

According to The Taxpayers Network, Florida is No. 4 in pop-
ulation in the U.S. with 19 million, trailing California, Texas and
NeW York. The U.S. population is 311 million.
From 2010 to 2011 Florida was the third fastest growing state,
adding 218,929 residents. Texas and California led in population
growth.
Florida ranks 47th highest in percentage of foreign-born pop-
ulation with 18.28 percent.
Florida ranks No. 14 in the most senior citizens in poverty with
20.7 percent. The leaders are Mississippi, West Virginia, Kentucky,
Louisiana and Arkansas. The U.S. average is 18.7 percent.
Annual per capital personal income in the U.S. is $39,945.
Florida ranks No. 25 at $38,222.
Floridians on average must work 101 days to reach tax free-
dom day on April 11. Florida's sales tax rate is 6 percent. Hardee
County adds a 1 percent local sales tax.
Florida charges an excise tax of 6.7 cents on a pack of ciga-
rettes, compared with a federal excise tax of $1 a pack.
Florida charges an excise tax of $6.50 a gallon on spirit
(liquor) sales, $2.50 a gallon on table wine, and 48 cents on a gal-
lon of beer.
Florida receives taxes of 35 cents on a gallon of gasoline.
Horst Witschonke,.75, of Ona is an interesting man. He was
born in Berlin, Germany, and lived in Chicago, where he worked 6
years for the city in environmental affairs and 23 years with the
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. He .and his wife Maria,
from Austria and Russia, love Hardee County and moved here from
Manatee County in 2000 because of our lower property taxes.
An environmental expert, he believes the proposed Waste
Generated Products project (turning local and imported garbage
.into fitel and products) is "a unicorn with five horns-total B.S.).
WGP i a start-up company with no track record.
"To make products, you need to use pure materials. If turning
garbage into fuel and products was good, big cities like New York
would already be doing this."
Witschonke also does not think a natural gas compression and
liquification plant is a good idea for Hardee County and thinks the
county commission should bring in experts from Louisiana to pro-
vide more information. Fort Green Storage LLC is also a new start-
up company but does have an expert or two involved. He is con-
cerned about'the dangers of storing liquid natural gas under high
pressure at minus-260 degrees Fahrenheit and possible dangers of
leaks and terrorist attacks and the training and equipment of the
local fire department.
Factors favoring the gas plant would be the nearby availabili-
ty of two major natural gas pipelines, new jobs and a huge increase
in real estate and tangible property taxes coming to the county. This
could be several million dollars a year for county government and
public schools .
The WGP project promises to get Hardee County out of the
landfill business and to handle all of the county's garbage plus col-
lecting fees for outside garbage, in addition to many jobs and added
tax revenue to the county.
Witschonke recently visited the Hardee County Landfill and
City of Wauchula water plantarid had high praise for both.
Frank Kirkland of Bowling Green is upset over the three-
minute rule for public comment at County Commission meetings

SKuhlman, a jumbo jet pilot captain for UPS, has a retirement
home investment riear Hurdee Lakes and is concerned about unde-
sirable industrial projects in Hardee's northwest quadrant. He has
recently filed a state ethics complaint saying he does not.think
county commissioners Minor Bryant and Dale Johnson should vote

Leadership Hardee


The Hardee County Chamber
of Commerce is currently ac-
cepting applications for its fifth
Leadership Hardee Program -
Class of 2012-13.
The course is a comprehen-
sive, tuition-based program for
selected Chamber members to
gain the skills and knowledge to
become an effective community
leader.
The program, designed to
identify existing and emerging
leaders from various segments
of the community, is set to kick
off in September.
Its nine-month curriculum is
dedicated to building a network
of community leaders who will
utilize their diverse talents,
skills, and unique perspectives


to address community-wide
challenges, identify viable al-
ternatives, and help solve prob-
lems facing. Hardee County
today and in the future.
By focusing on the selection,
training,.advancement and rec-
ognition of leadership, the pri-
mary objective of Leadership
Hardee is to educate and expose
a select number of individuals
to the societal and economic
challenges facing the communi-
ty.

568,000 to 321,000 and the state's jobless rate has dropped from
11.1 percent to 8.6 percent.
Scott said he plans to opt out of spending about $1.9 billion
more taxpayer dollars to implement a big expansion of Medicaid.
The state will also opt out of a provision to allow for building
"insurance exchanges" for which people can buy health insurance
eligible for federal subsidies. He wants to focus on controlling
health care costs in Florida. The health care exchange would raise
the cost of insurance.
Scott said the key is to run the state like a business by watch-
ing how every dime is spent, measuring the living daylights out of
everything and holding people accountable for their actions, wrote
Matt Algarin of the Northwest Florida Daily News.

How Would the Sheriffs Office Run Under Santarlas?

Here is how itwill begin...
Week One Elimination of the Good Ole' Boy Network.
Schedule the first of 4 Quarterly Town Hall Meetings around the county.
Begin the Outside Accreditation Process for External Oversight.
This will provide Accountability & Transparency at the sheriffs office.
Implement Contemporary Law Enforcement Policies & Procedures.
Mend broken relationships with other emergency service agencies in Hardee County.
Create a Citizens Review Board to investigate allegations of law enforcement
misconduct. This works in a manner similar to that of the grand jury.
After Week One Apply for Federal Grant Money to reduce tax-payer contributions.
Permit Union Representation so Collective Bargaining can begin for the deputies.
I will treat the employees fair and thus have nothing to fear by signing a union
contract to protect the interests of the deputies.
Re-align Sectors and Zones to properly cover ALL of Hardee County.
-' Utilize Existing Budgetary Funds through Proper Allocation to put more deputies
on the road and into the jail.
And that is just to start! There will be much more to come. I am going to give you
back your law enforcement agency and ensure that things are handled in a proper,
consistent and lawful manner. I guarantee it!

STogether.....we can make a positive difference in the lives of others!

Extra Tax
According to the Department
of Agriculture, it will cost a
middle-income family, on aver-
age, $226,920 to raise a child
born in 2010. Fortunately, the
cost per child decreases for
additional children. Similarly,
the more kids you have, the big-
ger your tax savings.
'"Uncle Sam offers several
family-oriented tax benefits,"
said TaxACT spokesperson
Jessi Dolmage. "Determining
which ones you qualify for can
be confusing because of rules
about filing status, itemized
deductions and income levels."
Tax preparation software solu-
tions like TaxACT eliminate the
guesswork. Answer simple
questions to determine if you'
qualify, and the program will
complete the tax forms and
check your return for errors.
Here are some requirements
for key tax breaks available on
next year's return. Although
your 2012 tax return isn't due
until April 2013, you'll want to
keep receipts and detailed docu-
mentation throughout the year
to substantiate the credits and
deductions you claim.

Z' TITAN BIOFUELS, INC.
A simple question leads to more savings for off-road biodiesel users. Many of you who are already using biodiesel will
be glad to hear that Titan Biofuels Inc. has lowered their prices on offroad fuel. Marlon Pendergrass, the owner of The
Groves Of Peace River Inc., recently started using our biodiesel in his grove pumps. From day one, he had been asking
me why the savings for offroad biodiesel was less than the savings for onroad biodiesel, compared to the cost of petro-
leum diesel. Most onroad users are paying thirty cents per gallon less for our biodiesel than what they would pay for
petroleum diesel. He asked me to relay his concern to the owners of Titan Biofuels Inc. I did not think that they would
really even consider lowering their price spread because we were already fifteen to twenty cents less per gallon thah
petroleum diesel, for our average offroad customers. However, I was speaking with one of the owners last week, Brennon
Daugherty, and he told me that he had been thinking about what Marlon said, and that they would lower their profit and
add to the buyers' savings. Like they say, It doesn't hurt to ask. If you see Marlon around town, you might want to thank
him for voicing his opinion on, the matter. Most of our offroad biodidsel users will now pay twenty-five to thirty cents per
gallon less than the cost of offroad petroleum diesel. Our biodiesel is an American product that costs less than its foreign
competition and is better for your equipment and the environment. o ua Clemente

Dear Friends:

I am running for re-election to the Hardee County School
Board and seeking your support. When I first ran for election in 2008,
I did so because of the critical issues facing our schools: student
achievement and the myriad of problems associated with our
schools' budget restraint. I was convinced that with my unique ex-
perience and perspective along/with careful oversight, we could im-
prove upon our academic achievements even with thoughtful and
thorough fiscal restraint.

Despite the difficult economic times in which I have served,
my commitment to the public education continues to remain unwa-
vering. I have been "consistently" involved in the Hardee County
School system for over 41 years and would like to build on the
knowledge and experience I have gained to continue serving Hardee
County parents, teachers, and children.


Those of you, who know me, either from entrusting your child in my classroom or serving
in the community with me, know that I am definitely not a member of the Hardet County School
Board that accepts status quo. If something is wrong, the community needs to be advised and
we need to search our collective mind for a strong solution.
I would like to thank all of you who have supported me during the last four years, and
during this campaign. Serving the last four years on the school board has provided me with a
wonderful opportunity to meet and speak with you about our students and teachers' achieve-
ments and about the work we still have to do to ensure that all of our students and teachers are
successful. With your support, I look forward to the opportunity to continue to serve the residents
of Hardee County for the next four years as a member of the Hardee County School Board.

I would certainly appreciate your vote on August 14, 2012. It is a vote that will not go un-
heard; it is a vote for the voice of the future.

A plan for long-term conser-
vation of the Florida black bear
was recently approved by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
The Florida bear population is
thriving. It was estimated as few
as 300 in the 1970s and is esti-
mated today at more than 3,000.
"That is the success story, but
we still have a lot of education
to do," FWC Commission
Chairman Kathy Barco said.
"Everyone loves bears, but not
everyone wants them in their
backyard. When people call to
say, 'Relocate this bear,' we
need to help that neighborhood
learn the ways to coexist with
the bear take care of your
garbage, dog food and bird feed-
ers."
The Florida Black Bear
Management Plan, available
online at MyFWC.com/Bear,
encourages public input into
bear management decisions at
the local level. The plan will
help the FWC find solutions that
best fit the challenges facing
both people and bears in differ-
ent parts of the state. Bear popu-
lations in some areas are thriv-
ing, while populations in other
places still are recovering.
Challenges addressed by, the
-Black Bear Management Plan
include:
* Maintaining wildlife habitats
and corridors on public and pri-
vate lands that accommodate
bears' large home ranges of up
to 60,000 acres and allow bears
to roam safely.


* Reducing human-bear con-
flicts, through use of bear-proof
cans for garbage and proper
storage of birdseed and pet
food, which can be irresistibly
mouthwatering treats for bears.
* Educating Floridians and vis-
itors about black bear behavior
and conservation, and how to
remain safe if a bear comes into
your yard or if you encounter a
bear. To find out more, go to,
MyFWC.com/Bear.
Seven bear management units
(BMUs) will be created, with
each unit containing a geo-
graphically distinct bear sub-
population and a local advisory
group of stakeholders interested
in issues such as creating "Bear
Smart" communities.
The state's largest land mam-
mal is a subspecies of the
American black bear and had
been listed as a state-threatened
species since 1974. Successful
conservation of the Florida
black bear was confirmed by a
2011.Biological Status Review,


which reported the bear to be no
longer at high risk of extinc-
tion.
While FWC has passed a rule
to remove the black bear from
the list of state-threatened
species, it also adopted a sepa-
rate new rule stating it is still
illegal to injure or kill a bear in
this state, or possess or sell bear
parts.
The Florida black bear is
among the 62 wildlife species
that soon will join the list of
species, like the bald eagle,
already under an FWC manage-
ment plan. Florida's new threat-
ened species conservation
model requires that manage-
ment plans be created for all
species that have been state-list-
ed and that plans be updated at
specified intervals.
Those management plans
give citizens an active role in
Florida's efforts to conserve its
diverse wildlife for future gen-
erations.

From Migrant To Marine:


Former Hardee Countian Earns National Award


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
From picking oranges to
receiving an award for his
excellence in the military.
Former Hardee Countian
*Gunnery Sergeant Rudy Cruz
has made quite a mark as a near
15-year Marine.
All the hard work and effort
he has put in to serving his
nation and his current town of
Beaufort, S.C., have earned him
the 2012 League of United
Latin American Citizens'
Excellence in Military Service
Award.
LULAC is the oldest and
biggest Latino organization in
the U.S. Its mission, according
to the website lulac.org, "is to
advance the economic condi-
tion, educational attainment,
political influence, housing,
health and civil rights of the
Hispanic population of the
United States."
Cruz was nominated for this
award because his commanding
officer believed Cruz .was an
exceptional example. of what


LULAC stands for.
As a child, Cruz and his fam-
ily moved to Hardee County
looking for work. As is true for
most migrant families, that
work consisted of long and
tough hours under the sun har-
vesting oranges, cucumbers,
tomatoes and more.
Although young, Cruz would
help his family by working in
those fields. However, his par-
ents wanted more for their chil-
dren and were able to find work
that would allow them a better
education.
His mother, Virginia Cruz,
has worked for East Coast
Migrant Head Start for over 20
years. His. father, Rudy Cruz,
worked for U.S. Agri-Chem-
icals for 18 years before suffer-
ing an injury that left him dis-
abled. They both still live in
Wauchula.
Cruz currently lives in South
Carolina with his wife, Yesenia,
whom he met shortly before
enlisting, and their children
Isabella 7, Rudy Isaac 5, and
Israel, 2.


Cruz graduated from Hardee
Senior High School in 1991. He
then went on to complete a law
enforcement training program
at South Florida Community
College and then worked for
U.S. Agri-Chemicals.
In February of 1997, because
of good recruiting and- the
desire to go abroad and learn.
Cruz enlisted in the military. On
Feb. 18 Cruz left for the Marine
Corps Recruit Depot of Parris
Island and completed 13 weeks
of training before earning the
title of a United States Marine.
Since then. Cruz has shown
to be an excellent representa-
tion of the Latin community in
how he serves his country.
Throughout the years, Cruz
has served at several American
Embassies around the world.
Some include those in Trinidad
and Tobago, West Indies;
Pretoria, South Africa; Maputo,
Mozambique; and Gaborone,
Botswana. He also volunteered
for the Marine Corps Ball sup-
port at the American Embassy
Barbados.
Cruz has provided security


for the president of the United
States in El Salvador.
In 2006. he volunteered and
served a combat tour in Af-
ghanistan and was at an even
greater risk. Along with the
Combined Security Transition
Command. Cruz traveled
around the country recruiting
enlisted soldiers and officers for
the Afghan National Army.
Cruz has been acknowledged
for his great work as a Marine.
In 2004. he was selected as
Company F Marine Security
Guard of the Year and promoted
to staff sergeant. Since arriving
at Parris Island, and after four
months as the administrative S-
1 chief, he was assigned as the
Battalion S-1 officer and adju-
tant.
His commanding officer
refers to him as "without a
doubt, the hardest working staff
noncommissioned officer in the
battalion."
Cruz has served as a School
Board member for the Depart-
ment of Defense Domestic
Dependent Elementary and
Secondary Schodls in the South
Carolina Tri-Command Area.
Showing he is excellent at
multitasking. Cruz is very
involved with volunteering. He
is described as being a natural
leader who inspires others to
volunteer.
He has led Toys for Tots
efforts in Pretoria. led the
Rotary Club Adopt-a-Highway
cleanup efforts in Beaufort and
volunteered about 110 hours
each as a tee-ball and soccer
coach.
Cruz and his wife are also a
part of the Family Readiness
Program. They attend all meet-
ings and therefore, with their
example, are able to encourage
others to devote their time and
energy to this cause.
Other volunteer work in-
cludes sword detail for the
Beaufort Marine Corps Ball
Ceremony, serving on the Color


Guard for Recruiting Station
Dallas and the Veterans of
Foreign Wars Lone Star Post in
Texas. helping at the Marine
Corps Air Station Beaufort Air
Show and serving on the
Parrish Board Committee for
St. Anthony's Marine Corps Air
StationChapel.
Cruz's biggest contribution
to the Latin community came
along in September. He served
as a senior committee member
on the Hispanic Heritage Month
Board.
'For months he planned, ad-
vertised and put on a' successful
Hispanic Heritage Celebration.




* :" -


Many members of the commu-
nity attended, including hun-
dreds of Marines, sailors, fami-
ly members,.civilian employees
and retirees.
Cruz received his award at
the LULAC 84th National
Convention in Orlando on June
24. When asked how he felt
about receiving this award,
Cruz replied that it was an
honor to receive such an award.
Cruz's commanding officer
said, "He teaches his Marines to
be professional subject-matter
experts, but also to be better
spouses, parents, citizens and
patriots."


After winning the Excellence Award, Cruz and his family
were able to have a meet and greet with Second-Lady Dr.
Jill Biden.

WWII Veterans Take Flight Of Honor


By SANDY SCOTT
Special To The Herald-Advocate
For the second year in a row,
the Hardee County Rotary Club
has escorted World War II veter-
ans to Washington, D.C.,
through the Honor Flight Net-
work to see the memorial dedi-
-cated in their honor.
This year Hardee County
partnered with all of the High-
lands County Rotary Clubs and
an entire plane was chartered
through the Southwest Florida
Honor Flight program, trans-
poriing 112 Rotarians and World
War II veterans.
The Honor Flight program
was conceived by Earl Morse, a
physician assistant and retireA
Air Force captain. After retiringi
from the military in 1998, he-,.
was hired by the Department of
Veteran Affairs to work in a
small clinic in Ohio. In May of
2004, the World War II Memor-
ial was dedicated in Washington
and quickly became the topic of
discussion among his WWII-
veteran patients.
Morse asked thesq veterans if
they would ever travel'to visit
their merporial. Many admitted
that they had finally reached the
realization that they. would
never live to see the memorial
that was built in honor of them.
In December of 2004, Morse
personally flew one of his World
War II patients to D.C. A week
later, another patient was escort-
ed to Washington at no cost to
him.
The rest soon became history.
SPilot friends stepped up to the
plate and donated their time and
aircraft to help these heroes of
the greatest generation realize
their dream.
In 2005, after six small planes'
flew from Ohio transporting 12
WWII veterans to Washington,
there was an ever-expanding
waiting list of veterans. This led
.tolhe transition to commercial

than 81,000 veterans at no cost
to them.
Last year, after learning of
the Honor. Flight Network,,'the
Hardee Couity Rotary Club
stepped up to the plate and
vowed to help send any of the
local veterans. So, nine veterans
and 'their required guardians
visited the World War II Me-
morial, Korean War Memorial,
Arlington Cemetery, Iwo Jima
War Memorial, and the Air
.Force Memorial..
SThat trip was so successful
phat the. club \o,wed to. make
this an annual project. This
year, on Saturda), Ma) 12, each
of the guardians picked up a
veteran by 3:30 a.m. for a short
trip to Sebring, meeting up with
the group of Highlands County
Rotarians and veterans. Annett
Bus Lines escorted the group of
.112 to Fort Myers, flying via
Southwest Airlines at 8:40 a.m.
The Southwest Florida
Honor Flight 'Network was in
charge of all the arrangements
and has made so many trips thit
each goes like clockwork.
There are always surprises for
the veterans, including dough-
nuts and coffee prior to board-
:ing as well as an Honor Guard
Walkway manned by local vet-
erans.
Upon arrival at Ronald Rea-
gan International Airport in
Washington, the plane is hon-'
ored with a colored spray as the'
veterans gaze out the windows.
Then, the veterans were sur-
prised once again as an entire
Boy Scout troop saluted them
as they emerged from the
plane's walkway, as well as the.
other travelers, who were wait-
ing to board the next flight out,
shaking their hands as they
went through the concourse.
Chartered tour buses took
them to their first stop, the
World War II Memorial, where
they spent about an hour and a
half. It was here that Sen. Bob
Dole and his wife, Elizabeth,
spent an entire morning greet-
ing these Honor Flight partici-
pants and posing for pictures
with each one.
For the most part, the same
memorials are visited each trip,
but due to certain' time con-
straints one or another may
need to be eliminated. That was
the case this year, primarily due
to the flight being at a later
time. So, after leaving the
World .War II Memorial, the
group was transported directly
to Hains Point for a box lunch
rather than visiting the Korean
War Memorial.
'The appointed time to see the
Changing of the Guard at Ar-
lington' Cemetery was 3 p.m.,
and afterward there was still
time to visit the grave of Audie
Murphy, the most decorated
American veteran of World War
II.
The last stop of the day was
at the Marine War Memorial,
where the group had ample time
to gaze upon the massive sculp-
ture of the raising of the flag at
Iwo Jima after posing for a
group picture.

The Rotary Club Honor
Flight 2012 boarded its char-
tered plane at 7 p.m., as 11
Hardee County veterans left
Washington, D.C., after being
able to visit their memorial.
According to statistics re-
leased by the Veteran's Admin-
istration, World War II vets are
dying at a rate of 740 a day.
This means there are only 1.7
million veterans remaining of
the 16 million who served this
nation in World War II.


The Hardee County Rotary
Club will see to it that as many
local World War II veterans as
possible visit their memorial
before they become one of
those statistics.
The Hardee County Rotary
Club agrees the Honor Flight
tops the list of gratifying proj-
ects. And if there were ever any
doubt, ask one of the World War
II veterans who has made the
trip.

sponsored by Rep. Jason
Brodeur of Sanford and Sen.
Andy Gardiner of Orlando.
Scott signed the legislation on
March 28. The law:
Requires additional review of
Regional Workforce Boards'
budgets and expenditures.
Provides a clearer path for the
governor to remove appointed
board leaders and chief execu-
tives of troubled boards for
causes including fraud, neglect
of duty, misfeasance, malfea-
sance or lack of performance.
Requires Workforce Florida
to develop a single, statewide
brand for the workforce system
to enhance job seeker and busi-
ness access to services.
Preserves existing local au-
thority to select members of the
board of directors for Regional
Workforce Boards and for those
members to hire -and, if need-
ed, terminate a regional
board chief executive. It also
maintains local flexibility to
develop workforce strategies
and programs that best address
the needs of each region.
Florida's workforce system
continues to receive national
recognition for its efforts.

One morning a mother was
.running late for an appoint-
ment. Wanting to look her
best, she asked her son to
polish her shoes. He did such
a good job that she wanted to
reward him. So, She gave him
a dollar.
As she was putting on one
of the shoes, she felt some-
thing strange. She reached
into the shoe and discovered
her dollar bill. With it was a
note that read, "Here's your
dollar back, Mom. I did it for
love."
Love has ears to hear the
sigh of the sorrowing. It has
eyes to see the needs of
those who are suffering. It
has feet .that run to others to
show mercy. It has hands that
extend themselves to help
others heal. It has a heart that
can feel the pain that others
are enduring. Love always
forgets self to serve others.
If we are not serving oth-
ers, we do not love. God's
word tells us to "love in deed,
not words alone."
May we each show more of
His love every day.

Experts say if you want to keep rabbits out of your garden, try planting a double row
of onions around it. Rabbits apparently hate the smell of onions and wont cross the
rows.

Snook Harvest Still Closed


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
voted to keep the recreational
harvest of snook in Gulf of
Mexico waters closed for anoth-
er year.
This will offer the species
additional protection after a
210,cold kill .which detrimen-
tally affected the population.
the decision came at the June
28 FWC meeting in Palm Beach
Gardens. after staff presented an
updated stock' assessment that
showed snook populations are
improving in the Atlantic. and
are not in biological jeopardy in
the Gulf. The next assessment is
due in 2015.
"If we have a bad winter this
year, e will benefit from this
caution; i, we don't have a bad'
winter, we will let all these
breeding fish come through the


slot," said Vice Chairman
Kenneth Wright, referring to the
snook slot limit of 28 to 33
inches in Gulf of Mexico
waters. "We'll really have done
something good and we'll have
protected some of these fish."
The recreational snook sea-
son was closed in Gulf of
Mexico and Atlantic waters by
executive order on Jan.16,
2010, after the cold kill. FWC
manages snook in both state
and federal waters, though the
species tends to inhabit the
shallower, near-shore state
waters.
The effects of the cold kill
were less severe on the Atlantic
coast, where the normal season
reopened for harvest Sept. 1,
2011.
The Gulf of Mexico recrea-
tional season was to reopen

pected to reopen Sept. 1, 2013.
Catch-and-release of snook will
be allowed during the closure.
In the Atlantic, the season
will remain unchanged. Annual
closures in the Atlantic are from
Dec. 15 through Jan. 31 and
from June 1 through Aug. 31.
There is no commercial har-
vest for snook in Florida. Snook
are one of Florida's premier
game fish, and anglers often
practice catch-and-release tech-
niques when targeting this
species.
When planning to release
snook, proper handling tech-
niques ensure the best chance of
survival. This includes return-'
,ing the fish to the, water as
Quickly as possible; using wet
hands to handle the fish; sup-
porting its weight in a horizon-
tal position when the fish is out
of the water; not holding the
fish by the gill plate, eye or jaw;
and reviving the fish if neces-.
sary by running it through the
water head-first to allow water
to flow over its gills.

If you've ever considered a
nursing career, now may be the
time to follow that dream. The
U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics
predicts that nursing job oppor-
tunities will grow by 26 percent,
or nearly 750,000 new jobs, by
2020, making it the fastest-
growing occupation, on aver-
age.
Attending a two- or four-year
college program can jump-start
a nursing career by developing
the teamwork, organizational
and technical skills that health
care employers seek, according
to a group of educators, nurses
and health care executives
brought together by Apollo
Research Institute. "In addition
to improved patient care quality,
nurses reap personal benefits by
pursuing higher education be-
cause it boosts career options,"
says Dr. Tracey Wilen-Dau-
genti, Apollo Research Insti-
tute's vice president and manag-
ing director.
Although nurses without
bachelor's degrees may be quite
competent at patient care, they
are more likely to be "passed
over". when employers fill
supervisory positions, says
Diane Wilson, a 20-year regis-
tered nurse who now hires nurs-
es as part of her role as chief
operating officer of the Com-
munity Blood Center/Com-
munity Tissie Services in
Dayton, Ohio. "You can be an
excellent nurse but [ybu] won't
meet the requirements for many


job postings unless you have a
college diploma."
In fact, the Institute of
Medicine recommends nursing
school leaders work together to
boost the number of nurses with
bachelor's degrees from 50 per-
cent to 80 percent by 2020.
"Adults who pursue a college
degree in nursing can earn a
significant return on their
tuition dollars," says Dr. Wilen-
Daugenti, citing Apollo Re-
search Institute's study compar-
ing starting salaries of college
graduates who enroll immedi-
ately after high school with
those of working learners who
self-fund their education while
in the workforce.
According to the study, work-
ing adult students, who graduat-
ed with a bachelor's degree in
nursing were shown to earn, on
average, a 36 percent return on
their tuition dollars, compared
to an average 18 percent return
for students who did not have
prior work experience or hold a
job during college..
While there is no one educa-
tional path that is right for
everyone, Dr. Wilen-Daugenti
notes that nurses and health
care professionals should seri-
ously consider pursuing a
degree, because "today's health
care and nursing careers require
more education and personal
planning than in the past."

All consumers need to under-
stand the economy and personal
finance, but it's particularly im-
portant for people who are visu-
ally impaired, according to
Thomas Galante, a vice presi-
dent at the Bank of New York
Mellon Corporation. .
"People sometimes say to me,
'I'm not working-why do I need
to know about personal fi-
nance?' It's in everybody's inter-
est to understand personal
finance," Galante says. "It's
even more important for people
who have fewer resources."
Galante is a registered user of
the National Library Service for
the Blind and Physically Han-
dicapped (NLS), a free program
of the Library of Congress that
has been producing and circulat-
ing audiobooks and braille
books for more than 80 years.
"One, way the NLS program
has helped me is by providing
popular business books the
self-help books, the manage-
ment books," .Galante says.
"These are books my peers are
reading, so it helps just in terms
of being conversant with col-
leagues."
A.Variety of Titles
Ardis Bazyn, an inspirational
speaker and business coach, is,

also an NLS user. "I believe it is
very important for blind individ-
uals to read as much as possible
in order to compete in this glob-
al economy," she says.
Recent books on personal
finance available to NLS users
include "Ordinary People,
Extraordinary Wealth" by Ric
Edelman and "Jim Cramer's
Getting Back to Even."
NLS also produces books that
have special relevance to its
users, such as "Estate Planning
for People with a Chronic
Condition or Disability." Books
in Spanish-such as "Repare Su
Cr6dito Hoy" ("How to Fix
Your Credit") and magazines
including Money, Kiplinger's
Personal Finance Magazine,
and The Economist are also
available.
Who Is Eligible?
U.S. residents and American
citizens living abroad who are
blind, have low vision or cannot
hold a book or turn its pages
because of a physical disability
are eligible. The service is pro-
vided through a network of
libraries in each state. Audio-
books and braille books are
delivered to users by mail; users
return them by mail, postage
free. NLS also provides the
playback 'equipment. Those

service may download books

REVELL A vT SaEs.


If you received any notices
about foreclosure of your pri-
mary residence in 2009 or 2010
and suffered financial harm
because of errors in that foreclo-
sure process, even if you did not
lose your home. you may quali-
.fy for a free, independent re-
view.
The deadline for requesting
that review is July 31, 2012.
Conducted at the direction of
the Office of the Comptroller of
the Currency and the Board of
Governors of the Federal Re-
serve, the Independent Foreclo-
sure Review will determine
whether you suffered financial
injury and should receive com-
pensation or other remedy be-
cause of errors or other prob-
lems during the foreclosure
process.
To be eligible, the mortgage
must have been active in the
foreclosure process between
January 1, 2009 and Decepmber
31, 2010. The property securing
the loan must have been your
primary residence, and the mort-
gage must have been serviced
by a mortgage service covered
by the OCC and Federal Re-
serve enforcement actions is-
sued in April 2011. For a list of
those companies, visit www.in-
dependentforeclosurereview.co
m. To know if your mortgage
was active in the. foreclosure
process during the eligible peri-
od, check to see if you received
foreclosure-related notices dur-
ing that period.
Request for Review
You can submit a request at
the same site or complete and
return a request form by mail.
More than 4.3 million forms and
letters- explaining the process
were sent to eligible homeown-
ers.


If you have questions about
completing the form or need to
request one, you can call (888)

process is free to eligible bor-
rowers who ask for a file
review, and that they give up
absolutely none of their rights
"n asking for the independent.
review of their case," said
Comptroller of the Currency
Thomas J. Curry. "All eligible
borrowers who submit requests
\can be assured that their file
will be reviewed professionally
and evaluated fairly to deter-
mine whether errors resulted in
financial injury."
Not all reviews will find
errors, and not all errors result
in financial injury. Where the
review finds financial injury,
the remediation offered is in-
tended to address direct finan-
cial harm and can range from a
few hundred dollars to more
than, $100,000. More than
136,000 people have requested

College
On July 1, South Florida
Community College donned a
new name, new look and an
expanded mission when it offi-
cially became South Florida
State College.
In a resolution recently unan-
imously approved and adopted,
the South Florida Community
College District Board of
Trustees instructed "the college
to effectuate any and all changes
and modifications necessary to
reflect this official action of the
board, ih any manner and at all
times deemed appropriate."
Although the board approved
the college's name change in its
Sept. 28, 2011 meeting, the col-




First Christian

Undefeated
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
First Christian Church ap-
pears the team to beat in the
2012 Women's Church Softball
League..
First Christian had an 8-0
record at the end of last week's
play., Holy Child Catholic was
close behind at 6-1, its only loss
to First Christian. Trailing the
leaders are First United Meth-
odist Church of Wauchula,
Florida's First Assembly of
God, Zolfo Methodist Church,
.New Hope Baptist, San Alfonso
Catholic Chapel and Northside
Baptist.
Action has been fast and furi-
ous in the first five weeks of
play, with two evenings of rain-
outs. Some games have been
close, some very divergent, but
all a lot of fun.
Games on June 19 on Field 1
were especially close. In the
opener, Northside inched past
Zolfo Methodist 14-13.
Leadoff batter Caylah Coker
circled the bases four times for.
Northside. Brooke, Rachel
Coker and Kimberly Thomas
each added a pair of runs.
Zolfo counted with two runs
apiece 6y Irene Santoyo,
Heather. Wahda Stetler and
Melinda W.
The late Field 1 game on June
19 ended in a 14-14 tie between
San Alfonso and New,Hope.'
Melanie Henderson; Jessica
Harrison,. Kim Benavidez,
Lindsey and Michelle Graham
came around to cross home
plate twice each for New Hope.
Leadoff batter Destin) scored
four times for San Alfonso.
Megan, Leigh, Penny Strange
and Gloria Salas added three
runs apiece.
Girls names are .incomplete
for many of the teams and a full
roster of last and first names
would be helpful if they would
be turned in for each game.


Change
lege could finally become South
Florida State College by gaining
the approval to offer baccalaure-
ate degrees through the Florida
State Board of Educatiop and
the Southern Association of
Colleges and Schools Commis-
sion on Colleges. SBOE gave
SFCC the nod on Sept. 20, 2011,
and SACS approved SFCC as a
baccalaureate degree-granting.'
institution on June 21, 2012.
"We are excited to begin this
new step," said Dr. Norm
Stephens, president, SFSC. "So'
far, 22 of the 28 Florida colleges
have or are in the process of
adding bachelor's degree pro-
grams and changing their
names. In addition to our new
bachelor's degree, we will
maintain our current mission."
The name change will benefit
students who graduate from
SFSC. "Institutions that offer
bachelor's degrees, are not typi-
cally called, community col-
leges," Dr. Stephens said, "In
Florida, colleges can only use
'state college' in their title if
they are authorized to offer
bachelor's degrees. The new
name will be included on stu-
dents' transcripts, indicating the
student has graduated from such
an institution."
"The opportunity to have
access to bachelor's degrees in
their community benefits our
local students," he said. "It's.
convenient and affordable. It
also benefits area businesses
and organizations that have a
need for workers with that level
of education."
With its new name and new
status as a state college, SFSC
launched a new brand identity
on.July 1. The college logo and
seal have been transformed. It is
a symbolic representation of the
college's-mrission and its seven
core values and purposes.
Seven orange and blue seg-
ments of the logo represent the
college's seven core values and
purposes outlined in the college
mission statement. The four
blue lines represent the
Highlands, DeSoto, and Hardee
campuses and Lake Placid
Center, and the three orange
lines represent the three coun-
ties SFSC serves-Highlands,
DeSoto, and Hardee," Dr.
Stephens said. "The white path-
ways between them represent
the journeys our students make
along the way to achieving their
educational goals. The shape of
the logo forms a letter 'S,' rep-
resenting both 'south' and
'state' Curved lines project
energy and movement while
representing lines of latitude."
The logo was also developed
to accommodate the demands
of the electronic age-- for the

college colors will remain a
deep, almost burnt orange.and
white, with the addition of a
dark blue accent.
SA new college seal was
designed by artist and SFSC
alumnus Keith Goodson. Rich
in elements symbolic of the col-
lege, its mission, and service
district, it will be the first seal
designed for the college since
its inception as South Florida
Junior College in 1965. College
seals are traditionally used for
formal and official documents
such as diplomas, legal and
official records, transcripts,
programs for formal academic
ceremonies, and any other legal
agreements binding an educa-
tional institution.
The first changes the public
will notice will be a fresh, new
college website and Facebook
page. Over the coming weeks,
signage, printed publications,
and much more will be updated.
It's a huge, but invigorating
effort. Employees and students
are excited about the new name,
new look, and expanded mis-
sion of South Florida State
College.

Typhoons area terror topilots. A
veteran pilot was asked, "What's
the secret of flying in them?"
"Turning the typhoon into a

Violent storms come into all our
lives. They can blow us from the
Lord or to Him. They can trip us or
speed us on our way.
St. Paul experienced one. He
was arrested, beaten and jailed.
But he sang, he didn't sigh. He
witnessed, he didn't whine. The

got converted. Soon Paul estab-
lished the first church in Europe.
Why don't you turn yourtyphoon

Greetings from Fort Green!-
I know I am getting old, but I
do not know how people who
must work outdoors during the
day stand it! When I was young
I worked in tobacco and this
was outdoor work and hot and
sweaty. but it didn't seem to be!
In this day and age, a job inside
where there is plenty of AC is
great. even if you sometimes
have to put on a sweater!
I ran out of room in last
week's column to put an inter-
esting item, or interesting to
me! Lee Chancey and Chrysta
sang together as a duet. Lee
played the guitar and intro-
duced Chrysta as Carrie! This
was the first time they had sung
in church and Chrysta didn't
seem real happy. She told me
the song was too low, but to my
no musical ability, it sounded
great.
Randy and Faye Davis en-
joyed the Fourth in Disney with
Norma Alejandro and their
grandchildren, Beka and Aaron
Brown. They returned home on
Thursday and all had a super
time. I was told, "It was hot!"

Fort Green News
By Rilla Cooper
773-6710


after our recent storm were very
muddy and hard to travel, but
Hendry was in good shape. The
county put white shell on our
road recently, and Bobby Bragg
said he was packing it real good
and he really did. I don't like
the white dust as it shows up
more than the gray did, but the
road is pretty smooth.
I always worry when the
county does something in Fort
Green because that means usu-
ally they are planning business,
etc., that us citizens won't like!
Brother Steve and Tara had a
very pleasant surprise on the
Fourth. Their son, Alex, has
been visiting for a few days and
enjoying fishing and spending
time with his parents. On the
Fourth, Brother Steve said he
was outside, evidently in the
back yard, doing something and
heard a knock on the door. He
didn't answer it, figuring Tara
or Alex would since they were
in the house. They .didn't, and
the knock sounded again and
someone inside hollered, come
on in, the door's open!
Now that is what all us coun-
try folks used to say when


someone knocked on the door
but nowadays most of us keep
the door locked! Well, the ones
coming on in were their daugh-
ter, Stephanie, husband Jeremy
and son Jonah. They had a
happy time and they all attend-
ed church Sunday morning.
They had driven down from
Michigan and I don't know if
Alex was-in on the surprise or if
he was as floored as his parents
were!
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the Novella Edwards
family. Years ago I knew her
and her sister, but we lose touch
over the years.
We had several additions put
on our prayer list at church
Sunday morning. These includ-
ed Gerald Abbott, Christine
Murdock as she begins treat-
ment, Darrel.Gibbs who had an
accident with fireworks, and
Margie Albritton. Gary Oden is
improving, as is Mary Lynn
Driskell. Mary Samuels had her
surgery and Donald said she
had only' taken one Tylenol for
pain! Arthur Womack and Ms.
Mildred are both out of the hos-
pital. I did not check so I don't
know if Bert Milligan is still in
the hospital or not. Please pray
for all our additions to our
lengthy prayer list.
I have proof people read -the
Fort Green News as someone
told me Billy and Joan Revell
Grimsley were married in the
old sanctuary!
VBS begins on July 22, at the
p.m. service with supper at 5:30
and classes at 6 and goes
through Thursday night, July
26. Friday night will be family
night as the youngsters let their
parents know how much they
have learned. This is always an
interesting night, and you never
know what may happen! The
boys and girls have a competi-
tion to see who can bring the
most money and the winners
get to select. a "treat" for the
pastor. Last year, they.pretend-
- ed he was a hot dog and Brother
Steve said he could still smell
mustard even after bathing! All
the youth are invited to VBS!
Please pray for one another,
our nation and our military.
