State Hands Out Lower School Grades


By MACHELLE DOLLAR
For The Herald-Advocate
After handing out the last stu-
dent report cards, teachers and'
principals alike have been anx-
iously awaiting their own
schools' final grades.
The Florida Department of
Education released school'
grades last Wednesday morn-


ing. Hardee County's school
district collectively scored one
grade lower than last year, with
the. exception of North
Wauchula Elementary School,
which remained at a C.
Hilltop, Bowling Green and
Wauchula elementary schools
each dropped their letter grade
from an A to a B. Zolfo.Springs


dropped to a C from a B last'
year. Hardee Junior High's pre-
vious C changed to a D this,
year.
Hardee Senior High will not
receive its school grade until
later this fall.
As a whole, the Hardee
County School District itself'
earned a C grade on the annual,


report card.
In-a letter sent to Florida par-
ents, Education Commissioner
Gerard Robinson explained
why school grades have
dropped all over the state of
Florida.
"To help better prepare stu-
dents for college and careers,

Cuts Off

Ex-Con's

Freedom
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A man just released from
prison is behind bars once
again, charged wiih stabbing
another man that very same day.
Eliseo Sanchez, 33, who gave
an address of 221 Palmetto
Ave.,, Fort Meade, has been
charged with burglary with an
assault, a first-degree felony,
and aggravated battery, a sec-
ond-.d.0?rJ gn), in the stab-
bing of Lee Byeri in Zolfo
Springs on Monday.
Sheriff's Maj. Randy Dey
said Sanchez had been released
'from Depaitient of Correc-
tions' custody earlier that day:
By 4 p.m., he alleged, Sanchez
Shad stabbed a man,
Dey alleged one of the first
acts the suspect made after get-
ting-out of prison was to look
for his ex-girlfriend. He found
her, the major said, at Byers'
residence, at 2480 Gobble
Lane.
Sanchez allegedly gained
entry into the home by remqv-
ing a window air-conditioning
unit and then climbing into the
opened space..He then began to
argue with his former girlfriend,
Dey said.
That argument moved out-
doors, as Byers called for help
inside. Then, the major added,
the ex-girlfriend became in-
"volved in a physical fight with
another woman, and Sanchez
went back inside the house.
There, Dey alleged, Byers
grabbed a machete to protect
himself from Sanchez and the
pliers he wielded. Sanchez
dropped the pliers, but then
came at Byers with a pock-
etknife, he said.
Byers was stabbed three
times before Sanchez' brother broer
came into the home and told his
brother to stop and to leave,

the standards, and higher
achievement levels for subjects
such as reading and math,"
began Robinson.
"These new standards, as-
sessments, and achievement
levels are being used to deter-
mine school grades this year,"
he noted.
For the first time, school
grades factored in test scores
from English for Speakers of
Other Languages students and
students with disabilities, an
addition that if not made, local

Durastanti said, the junior high

Victims Get $$$ Back


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Fourteen people allegedly
defrauded by a funeral director
they trusted have been reim-
bursed by a statewide victims'
fund. Wauchula police say.
Troy Brant. former owner of
Brant Funeral Home and ex-
city commissioner, was arrested
on April 25 and charged with
selling pre-need funeral 'ar-
rangements to customers and
then spending the cash on busi-
ness and personal expenses.
After Brant. 45, sold the
funeral home he had owned
from 2003 to 2010 and moved
to Jacksonville. the new owner
noted discrepancies in funeral
contracts and missing trust fund
monies. The Wauchula Police
Department began'a probe, and
identified about 18 victims and


Brant


losses of around $75,000.
The case remains active and
growing, Det. Jimmy Harrison
says.
Harrison said victims are still
being discovered and claims are
still coming in. Two more sur-
faced just recently, he said.
"We're expecting more vic-
tims," he added.
The Wauchula Police Depart-
ment already has helped 14 of
those alleged victims recover
the money they had paid Brant
for pre-need funeral arrange-
ments.
Harrison explained that the
Florida Department of Fi-
nance's Division of Funeral,
Cemetery & Consumer Ser-
vices has a consumer protection
fund overseen by a Board of
Directors. That board, he noted,
is made up of funeral directors
and employees from throughout
the state and is funded by
license fees.
Just last month, the board met
via telephone conference to
review the investigation and the
victim claims to date. It was
then, Harrison said. that the
.board agreed to reimburse 14 of
Brant's former customers.
The detective said the
Wauchula Police Department,
with the assistance of state Rep.
Ben Albritton, has been work-
ing with the Division of Fu-
neral. Cemetery' & Consumer
Services to repay $78,700 to

Harrison expects that number
to climb.

services between the years of

Of The Herald-Advocate
Despite persistent rumors,
despite "the facts" everyone
knows, it is not true.
Sheriff Arnold Lanier con-
firmed on Tuesday that he has
no plans to take over the
Wauchula Police Department
any time soon.
Lanier said he had simply
been requested in May to pro-
vide Wauchula with a proposal
of what it would take for the
Sheriff's Office to provide law
Enforcement services to the city.
There has been no discussion
with Bowling Green.
Wauchula City Manager
Terry Atchley explained the
misunderstanding. He said he
requested the proposal from the
Sheriff's Office to compare
with the current expenses, so he
could get a better handle on
preparing the police budget and
incorporating it into the entire
city budget for upcoming budg-
et workshops on July 30 and
31st.
"I would be remiss if I did not
consider and see how I can
manage, that department more
effectively," said Atchley, who
became Police Department fis-
cal manager when the retire-
ment of Chief William Beattie
was announced July 2. Capt.


Thomas Harris will continue to
oversee the daily operations of
the department.
Looking ahead to budget dis-
cussiofis, and wanting to gather
as much information as possi-
ble, Atchley asked Sheriff
Lanier for the proposal back' in
May.
Lanier's proposal, dated May
24, gives two options, two-man
coverage with a staff of 9 to
cover 24 hours plus backup for
vacation, sick leave, etc. or
three-man coverage to include a
criminal investigator, a staff of
13.
The first year's cost would be
higher because of the need for
equipment. It could be offset by
equipment the city already has
on hand or the cost could be
spread over three or four years.
For just the staff coverage, the
two-man setup would be
$537,424.75; for three-man, it
would be $776,280.20, a differ-.
ence of $395,299.45.
Atchley siid he has been
working on the budget and met
again with the sheriff and Maj.
Randy Dey on July 3 to clarify
some of the, information. Since
he as-sumed the fiscal manage-
ment of the. department he has
already reduced the budget
$161,000, and is working with

B.J. Johnson, 5, of rural Bowling Green will throw out the first
pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game today (Thursday) at Tropicana
field in St. Petersburg. He is the son of Steve and Andrea Johnson
and grandson of County Commissioner Dale and Sarah Johnson.
B.J. and his father have made a couple of Tropicana orange
juice commercials for television.
Dale has served on the Hardee County Commission for 8 years
and is not seeki-ng re-election. His dad B.J. Johnson served on the
County Commission for 16 years.
The Rays will play against the Cleveland Indians at 12:10 p.m.
There are many tickets available for the game. The Dome is 75
minutes by car from Wauchula.

Congratulations to Andrew McCutchen of Fort Meade who is
leading the Major Leagues in hitting and slugging percentage while
playing outfield for the Pittsburgh Pirates while making millions of
dollars a year. His batting average is about .370.
Seven years ago he was playing high school ball for the
Miners against teams like the Hardee Wildcats. Now he is an early
candidate for MVP in the National League and leading his'Pirates
toward possible postseason play.

Gasoline in Wauchula on Wednesday climbed to $3.35 a gal-
lon.

Hardee County Manager Lex Albritton this summer is casting
a smaller shadow. He has lost 50 pounds of weight in recent months
and plans to lose quite a bit more.

The county sheriff's budget for next year will be $7.3 million,
down $108,000 from 2011-12. Sheriff Arnold Lanier's budget the
past four years has been $7.1 to $7.4 million.
-e succeeded Sheriff Loran Cogburn, who retired four years
ago as sheriff. Cogburn's last two budgets were $7.3 million. He
went into insurance sales and this year isrunning for County
Commission.

County Commissioner Minor Bryant has served for 20 years
and is seeking re-election this year.

Hardee Clerk of Court Hugh Bradley is retiring after 16 years.
He succeeded Colemon Best who retired after 20 years in office.
Best succeeded Ben Coker who retired after 32 years as clerk.

Zee Smith is retiring as tax collector in Hardee after 16 years.
In all she has worked in the tax collector's office 35 years. Curtis
Ezelle set the bar high, serving as tax collector for 48 years.
The World War II soldier defeated Lloyd Carlton, who served
for 26 years. Those are the only tax collectors Hardee has had.
Ezelle set the gold standard for campaigning after he returned
home-from the war. He knocked on every door in the county ask-
ing for votes, and after the election he knocked on all the doors to
thank the voters.

Brant has been charged with
one count of scheming to
defraud, two counts of grand
theft greater than $10,000 from
an elderly person, six counts of
unlawful disposition of pre-

Harris and others to determine

The city manager said a cou-

casually asked him over the last
year if it could be financially
better to go under the Sheriff's
Office or not. He said there has
been no commission discussion
of it and any decision would
rest with the commission. He
said he felt they would probably
ask for a referendum to see how
the residents felt before taking
any action.
"It will definitely not be for
the next fiscal year. This-pro-
posal is just a management tool.
There is not, and never has
been, any intent on my part to
seriously consider a change.
That would be completely up to
the commission. At this point I
don't know enough to defend
consolidation one way or the
other. Our citizens deserve the

Five Ways To Put Money Back

In Your Pocket Each Month


If you're like most people,
you're looking to cut costs and
save money. Fortunately, a few,
simple things can really add up
and help you save a lot. Leah
Ingram, a frugal-living expert
and author of "Suddenly Frugal:
How to Live Happier & Heal-
thier for Less," suggests a few of
her own family's simple changes
that can save you money every
month.
The average American
tirinks 1,132 cups of coffee
annually-3.1 a day-and spends
$1,562 a year on brewed coffee
or $2,773 on espresso drinks at
stores, restaurants and coffee
shops. The cost to brew the
same number of cups at home
can be as low as $147 ($.13 per
cup). By making your coffee at
home, you can save some
$2,626 per year.
Bottled water is more ex-
pensive than gas-about $10 per
gallon. Americans spend about


$1,400 a year on bottled water,
or about $117 a month. If you
got a refillable, reusable water
bottle and filled it from the tap,
.you would save about $117 a
month,
SAmericans who eat lunch
out every weekday spend, on
average, about $7 per meal. If
you packed your 'lunch, you
would incur some grocery costs
in buying what you need to
make lunch but you could save
nearly $2,000 a year-about
$166 a month.
Ingram's family used to
spend .about. $750 a year on
phone service from the phone
company; now they're making
calls free. A landline phone is
quickly becoming a duplicative
expense. If you're already pay-
ing for high-speed Internet, you
should consider a VolP system,
such as the Ooma Telo. This
device can be hooked up to the
Internet instantly, letting you


make unlimited long-distance
calls within the U.S. with crys-
tal-clear call voice quality. You
can also reduce cell phone
expenses by switching to a pre-
paid plan arid using your home
phone more, once the VoIP sys-
tem is up and running. This
monthly savings can add up to
$40 to $50.
Nearly every home in the
United States has some sort of
computer printer and those
printers go through a lot of ink
cartridges. Rather than toss
them in your recycling bin,
bring them to an office supply
.store that will not only recycle
them for you but give you cash
back for your good, green deed.
.'At Staples, for example, you
can get $5 per recycled ink car-
tridge for recycling those car-
tridges. That can add.up to $240
back in your pocket each year.
All these little things can add up
t, big savings in the long run.


Baseball is a slow, sluggish game, with frequent and trivial interruptions, offering te
spectator many opportunities to reflect at leisure upon the situation on the field: This
is what a fan loves most about the game.

How does this affect you?
And maybe the question, is How does this not affect you? You have a right to
a full accounting of all of the county funds. Internal audits are critical because it
allows us to see the red flags before things become red hot issues! Court records
are critical in every case, no matter how large or small and the speed at which
they are produced is often an important part of the case. This is about manage-
ment of others and quality control at eveiy level.

What this means to you:
The person elected as Clerk of Court is the custodian of County Funds, and
the Clerk ensures that the taxpayer's money is managed according to the
Laws of Florida.
(information provided by MyFloridaClerks.com)
Provisions of the Florida Constitutions of 1838, established the Clerk of the Circuit Court as an
elected public trustee and set in place at the county level a system of "checks and balances" which
has been proven.to serve the public for over 170 years

Florida's unemployment rate
is still falling.
According to the Bureau of
Labor. Statistics Department of
Numbers, the unemployment
rate for the state of Florida in
May was 8.6 percent. This rate
has been consistently declining
since June of 2011, when it was
10.7 percent.
In fact. this number is the
lowest it has been since De-
cember of 2008, when unem-
ployment was at 8.2 percent.
Hardee County's numbers
have also been falling since
May of last year, when unem-
ployment was 8.5. This May the
rate was at 7.2 percent, al-
though the number rose from
the 6.8 percent it was in April.
However, even with the
increase between April and
May, the job growth rate has
been positive for the past 22
consecutive months. As noted
by the Florida Department of
Economic Opportunity, this

Free Money!
There are millions of dollars available to law enforcement agencies in the form of free
grant money. These funds can be used to purchase equipment, hire new deputies, and
create community oriented policing programs. In a time when our government entities
are facing severe budget cuts, grants provide supplemental funding to continue necessary
law enforcement operations.
I am a certified grant writer and a certified grant manager. I put the Leesburg Police
Department in the position to receive $1.2 million dollars in grant money in 2011-2012.
As your new sheriff, I will make it a top priority to secure that kind of roney for Hardee
County. These grants will help bring the Hardee County Sheriff's Office into the 21st
century with cutting edge training, equipment and technology. All of this can be

Forum Gives Voters A Look At Candidates


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Builders
Association hosted political
candidates and the public last
week at its monthly meeting.
Benny Hash, president of the
association, welcomed the pub-
lic to the meeting and thanked
the candidates for running and
acknowledged it was a hard
thing to do.
Each person running for
office was given three minutes
to address the crowd about any
topic. The candidates were bro-
ken down into the individual
races, and alphabetical order
determined the speaking order.

County Commission
District 1
Minor Bryant said he has
four children and grandchildren
living in the county and he is
very committed to its future.
He is for economic develop-
ment, even if at times it is un-
popular. Bryant said he was for
the prison, which a lot of people
were against, and now it pro-
vides 500 jobs for the commu-
nity.
He would like to see people
get involved in government
instead of continuing to.com-
plain all the time.
Colon Lambert is a partner in
Sunshine Foliage and said not
doing any business in Hardee
County will make him an objec-
tive commissioner.
He said he wants a new direc-
tion for the county and is pro-
growth.
He would also like to see the
county government run more
like a business.
Donald Samuels, 66, said he
is a lifelong resident of Hardee
County and is retired from
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive and spent 24 years in the
Army Guard.
He said he is pro-agriculture
and pro-growth. He supports
the Industrial Development
Authority concept, but wants to
make some changes to add
some checks and balances.
He said he would like to
move the Emergency Manage-
ment Offices moved under the
Sheriff's Office, and'the county
should continue to support
Resthaven.
Donny Waters is a lifelong
Hardee County resident and
owns and operated the King
Fries restaurant in Fort Greene.
He is running as a no party
affiliate as required by law
because he switched from a
Democrat to Republican less
than 365 days before the elec-
tion.
He said that is a good thing,
because he is an independent
thinker and not loyal to a party.

County Commission
District 3
Charles Dixon, who is run-
ning for the seat, did not attend
the forum.
Rick. Knight moved to
Hardee County in 1976 and
served on the Wauchula City
Commission for two separate
terms before being appointed to
the County Commission by
Gov. Rick Scott to replace now
Wauchula City. Manager Terry
Atchley.
Knight said he stands up for
what he believes in and is a
social and fiscal conservative.
He believes in small govern-

July 19, 2012. The Herald-Advocate 7A


Greetings from Fort Green!
The weather is hot but the
rain has been nice. We need to
be more thankful for all the lit-
tle things that make our lives so
great.
John and Essie had a wonder-
ful vacation. They left July 4
and drove to Alabama to visit a
daughter and another daughter
flew in from Texas, so they had
a mini family reunion. John said
it was great watching 50-year-
old and more girls trying to
show they could still do all the
things they could do in the pool
when they were 13 and 14. He
said they could still stand on
their heads and walk on their
hands under water.
I remember when I tried to
learn to turn a somersault in the
water. I was at 4-H Camp in
Cherry Lake, and came up with
a bloody nose! That was the
end of my. water trick learning
experience.
Lynda and Charles Abbott
have returned from a trip to
Blairsville, Ga. Lynda said
when they get home and see all
the grands and great-grands,
they are ready to go again! They
said it was hot up there also.
Joyce Coker said she went to
see Joan Grimsley recently in
Winter Haven and they met
Millie Revell and enjoyed hav-
ing lunch together. Millie said
tell everyone hello and she
misses everyone she knew in
Hardee County.
Joy and David Spencer had a
good vacation visiting friends
and family in North Carolina
recently. Carol and Johnny
Brown drove Beka and Aaron
Brown back to their home in
DeFuniak Springs. Beka and
Aaron had a super time visiting
in Fort Green.
Randi Richmond has a broth-
er who lives in Jacksonville.
She joined him and his family
on a tour of the Holy Lands.
She said she was really plan-
ning on clothes she would need
to take, as she didn't want to be
overloaded with luggage.
Jane 'Kennedy had' a heart
cath and received a good report
from her doctor. Archie Davis

was reported to be in the
Sebring hospital, last Wednes-
day night. I have not heard, if he
is home or not. Bert Milligan is
still in the local hospital as is
Mildred Cooper. It was neces-
sary to return her to the hospital
last Saturday. She was dehy-
drated, among other problems.
William Porter is in lots of
pain per his mama, and you
surely do not want to see your
children hurting. Steve Kirk-
wood has improved and is now
waiting for his troop to return to
Afghanistan. My personal opin-
ion, which the government
doesn't care one whit for, is that
once injured in service you
should not have to return to
Afghanistan after you recover.
Mrs. Forrester is home from the
hospital but it was necessary for
her to have some heart stents. It
was reported at church Sunday
that Billy Nicholson is very
low. Please pray for all these
sick and others that you might
know.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Joan
Wells.
Ken and Kitty Oden and
Gary and Ginny are on a short
trip to Georgia to visit family'
and friends.
Most everyone saw the story
on TV about the boy losing his
arm to an alligator and using
spider webs to stop the bleed-
ing. The news team had never
heard of this and checked with
their doctor to see if scientifi-


cally this could actually help.
Of course, all us country
folks have heard it all our lives
and have practiced it. Didn't
know why it worked, just
Grandpa told us and so we did
it, as his grandparents had
passed on to him. But the news
team discovered spider webs
have vitamin K, which is a
coagulant. Amazing, isn't it?
Don't forget VBS at Fort
Green begins Sunday night at
5:30 for supper. Then line up
for opening exercises which
begin at 6. It will be over at
8:30 every night. All the youth
are invited.
Please pray for one another,
our nation, and the law enforce-
ment personnel.

rNutrition Wise
KAREJ COni iINS. M. RDn CnN


L
Q: If coffee is dehydrating,
how much water do I need to
drink to make up for this
effect?
A: Actually, earlier concerns
that coffee is dehydrating
because of its caffeine content
now seem unfounded. Research
shows that moderate amounts
of coffee, whether regular or
decaf, can help keep us well
hydrated. Caffeine's small
diuretic effect is more than
counter-balanced by the fluid
we get as we drink coffee.
These findings are based on a
person drinking about 13 mil-
ligrams (mg) of caffeine per
pound of, body weight.
Depending on the coffee you
drink, that's equivalent to about
two or three eight-ounce cups
of coffee for a 130-pound adult,
or three to five eight-ounce
cups for someone who weighs
180 pounds. Higher coffee con-
sumption does not seem to be
studied regarding dehydration
effects, but since it would
involve additional fluid con-
sumption, there's no reason to
expect dehydration problems.
Coffee beyond moderation can
pose other concerns, such as
sleep interference, of course.
Drinking water throughout the
day is an excellent habit, but
there's no need to include any
particular extra amount because
you drank a cup of coffee.

Q: Is it true that exercising to
music helps you get a better
workout?
A: Music can be a big help and
seems to work in several ways.
Some studies show that music
- any music becomes a sort
of distraction during exercise
that results in people not per-
ceiving themselves to be work-
ing as hard as when they're
exercising in quiet. This can
lead people to feel comfortable
continuing to exercise a little
longer or work at a higher
intensity than they otherwise
would, and thus burn more
calories and progress more in
their physical training if this
becomes their norm. Some also
achieve this distraction by lis-
tening to audio books or rhyth-
mic nonmusical noise like the
sounds of ocean waves. Other
studies', however, show a
unique advantage to music: the
faster the beat of the music, the
faster or more intensely people
exercise. For most of us, this is
helpful. However, people in
cardiac rehab or others advised
to hold back their pace for med-
ical reasons may respond to fast
music by pushing past their rec-
ommended limits, so we need to
use this tendency wisely. One
other caution: if you are out
walking or biking in an area
where you need to be aware of
traffic and people surrounding


AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR
CANCER RESEARCH
you for safety reasons, be care-
ful about letting music or other
sounds distract you or make it
too difficult to hear sounds you
need to hear.
.Q: I've heard that winter
squash is very nutritious. But
how do you fix it without
adding a lot of fat?
A: Winter squash, such as
acorn, hubbard and butternut, is
more concentrated in several
nutrients than summer squash.
Winter squash's dark orange
color is a hint that it's an out-
standing source of carotenoids,
antioxidants that seem to work
in several ways to help prevent
cancer. Winter squash is also a
good source of vitamin C,
dietary fiber and potassium,
which appear to help with blood
pressure control. Some recipes
do add so much butter or mar-
garine and sugar or syrup to the
squash that it becomes quite
high in calories. But that's cer-
tainly not necessary to enjoy its
wonderful flavor. Cut winter
squash in cubes and add to stir-
fries and stews. Or roast it in the
oven alone or with other veg-
etables, drizzled with just a bit
of olive oil. Whether steamed or
cooked in other ways, winter
squash can also be pureed in a
blender or food processor and
used in soup.

Q: I've been gaining weight in
recent years. But as long as
my doctor doesn't tell me I
need to lose weight, can I
assume it's not really a health
issue?
A: Not necessarily. According
to a recent federal health sur-
vey, doctors do not always talk
to their overweight patients
,about weight. These results are
similar to results from earlier
studies. In the government sur-
vey, more than 70 percent of
people classified as overweight
- and almost 30 percent of
those classified as obese said
their health cdre professional
never told them they were over-
weight. This can happen for a
variety of reasons. But it is a
problem, because in the same
survey, nearly a quarter of
women and nearly half of men
who were overweight identified
th'fet weight-as being appropri-
ate; And weight alone does not
identify all people with excess
body fat: that's the reason health
experts now recommend check-
ing your waist size, too. It's
clear that health-related risks
are greatest at highest levels of
obesity. However, even moder-
ate overweight poses some
increased risk of cancer and
other health problems by pro-
moting inflammation and
unhealthy levels of certain hor-
mones. For example, even
weight gains of 15 pounds or so


Less Peer Pressure, More


Independent Thinking


over adult life carries some
increased risk of post-
menopausal breast cancer. If
your doctor hasn't brought up
your weight gai," at the very
beginning of you .iext appoint-
ment bring it up as something
you want to discuss.
Q: If those chocolate nut
spreads in the peanut butter
section of the grocery store
have the same number of
calories as peanut butter, are
they a good substitute for
peanut butter?
A: In this case, the differences
among these products is not the
calories, it's what you get for
the calories. Plain peanut butter
contains about 8 grams of pro-
tein per serving (two table-
spoons) along with the healthy
unsaturated fats contained in
the nuts. Popular brands also
add about one gram of saturated
fat, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar and a
pinch of salt in each serving. In
that same two-tablespoon serv-
ing, chocolate nut butters gen-
erally add about two teaspoons
of sugar. Protein per serving is
also lower, because it contains
fewer nuts. The total fat content
is lower but in this case, that's
not a good thing: nuts' natural
fat is a healthy fat, and there's
less fat in these chocolate nut
butters because the same size
serving contains more sugar.
Some chocolate-flavored nut
spreads may take this difference
even further, containing more
sugar and added oils than nuts.
Again, calories and saturated fat
may be the same, but you're get-
ting less protein, less healthy fat
and far more sugar than plain
nut butters. Most of us have
some room' in our diets for
treats, but it's best to consider
the higher-sugar spreads a treat,
not equivalent to peanut or
other basic nut butters.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
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 ti.
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.

SSOWER

Big Al loved his vintage car
more than anything in the
world. When he died, a chauf-
feur led the funeral proces-
sion to the cemetery in his
vehicle.
Even though the burial
service was brief, someone
had time to steal his car while
the mourners bowed their
heads in .prayer. Realizing
what had happened, a friend
said, "I guess you can't be
too careful even at your own
funeral. You never know what
might happen after you die."
But we can know without a
doubt what will happen after
we die. We know that God
loves us and that we are very
dear to. Him. We also know
that a car can take us many
places, but not to heaven.
Only our faith in the Lord can
do that. When He calls us
home to heaven, if our faith is
.in Him, He will bring us into
His presence and we will
enjoy eternity with Him for-
ever.

Our only security is our,
ability to change.

Dear Wauchula Residents:
Over 10 years ago I embarked on a journey to bring leadership
and new ideas to the City of Wauchula.
You first trusted me as your Mayor and I did exactly what I
said I would do. I worked hard with the City Council to get
tough on -code enforcement. We continued to invest in
crumbling infrastructure where possible and with your approval
we completely transformed from a City Council form of
government to a City Manager form of government. In that
process I even eliminated my own job as Mayor because it was
simply the right thing to do.


You then gave me the privilege to serve you for a term as
a city commissioner wh6re we continued to progress with
code enforcement, infrastructure projects and investing
through the CRA in the betterment of our downtown area. You
re- elected me again and unfortunately I was only able to
serve a portion of that term due to personal business demands that all of us face from time
to time.
What matters most is that my heart and passion never left the people of Wauchula nor the
many things still before us to accomplish together. In my absence the city experienced some
awkward times. I am proud of those who did serve and of those who now do. I see clear and
convincing evidence that the track of progress can be restored and there are many who are


working to do so.


I was fortunate enough to be reappointed to the city commission in January of this year and I
am most proud to see that the City Manager form of government is working! Our current City
Manager is a man with a vision who is making a difference in every corner of the city. Our
commission recognizes that it is a policy making board rather than an administrativeone. This
trust gives the board the time to focus on the strategic aspects of our future.
Our employees and our business partners see continuity and progressive approaches.They also
see and recognize leadership and stability that has been absent their lives in the last couple of
years.
My love of Wauchula transcends me and goes way back! I am a fourth generation Wauchulan!
My grandfather was killed in service to the city as a lineman. I had a great uncle who served as
the power generation plant manager for over 40 years. He often kept the lights on with not much
more than chewing gum and barbed wire. I guess the dedication to service in part comes from
those who set the standards before me.
My stance on the issues may not always be popular but you will never have to debate where I
stand or why. I come prepared to city meetings as any and all who attend will attest. I study the
issues and I am clear about what I am asked to consider on your behalf.
I promised you honesty, integrity and forthrightness in all things and you have never received
less.
I would count it a privilege to continue to serve on the City commission in District seat 4. This
election is important at all levels and I hope you will get out and vote regardless of the candidate
you choose.
I am asking for your vote as we continue to progress.
Sincerely

Letter To The Editor

State Gives Hardee

School District A 'C'


Dear Editor:
Hardee County School Dis-
trict achieves a C grade on the
annual report card. Only Glades
County School District received
a higher grade of B among the
School Districts in the
Heartland. Desoto and Okeech-
obee County School Districts
received a D grade.
The Florida Department of
Education released school
grades and District grades this
past week. These were not the
ordinary school grades. The
State Board of Education voted
on and ratified over 34 changes
'to the school grading formula
for 2011-2012. Some of the,
'changes were adopted after the,
'FCAT test had been given. The
first' change raised the achieve-
ment level cut scores. With this
new standard in place, 2011-
2012 FCAT scores were calcu-
lated on a more rigorous and
completely different measure-
ment system.
The majority of the changes
were designed .by Tallahassee
bureaucrats to purposely create
a negative impact on all school
,.grades. The 2011-2012 school
.grades are not comparable to
the 2010-2011 school grades.
The changes implemented by
the State Board of Education
served no constructive
purpose.


Hardee County Elementary
schools earned three Bs:
Bowling Green, Hilltop, and
'Wauchula. North Wauchula
and Zolfo Springs received
grades of C. This is a.notewor-
thy achievement given the
changes made to the school
grading formula. If the Talla-
hassee bureaucrats had not
implemented the onerous
changes to the school grading
formula then every Hardee
County elementary school
would have made an A or B.
Hardee County schools con-
tinue to outperform other
Heartland counties. Desoto
County School District did not
have any schools earning high-
er than a C. Three Hardee
County elementary schools
ranked in the top 33 percent in
the Heartland.
Hardee Junior High was
graded D. The quality of learn-
ing at Hardee Junior High is
really better than that. Hardee
Junior High suffered from a
confluence of changes during
the 2011-2012 school year. The
changes to the school grading
formula disproportionately af-
fected Hardee Junior High. The
change where Students with
Disabilities and English Lang-
uage Learners were for the first
time factored into the perform-
ance (measures had a severe


impact on the school grade
since Hardee Junior High is the
Only Junior High in the county.
Hardee Junior High is an ESE
center thus having the most
Students with Disabilities in the
county.
Hardee Junior High scored
'474 points. The State Board of
Education raised the minimum
point total for a C from 435
points to 490 points. If not for
the changes to the school grad-
ing formula, Hardee Junior
High would have earned a C.
The school also suffered from
the tragic deaths of a student
and teacher. Our hearts and
prayers continue to go out to
their families.
Hardee Senior High will not
receive a school grade till later
this -fall. Hardee Senior High
showed improvement in several
areas.
SI am extremely proud of the
hard work and achievements'
that our teachers, parents, "tu-
dents, faculty, staff, support
personnel, and administrators
accomplished this year. Of
course, we could never be suc-
cessful without the support of
our churches, civic organiza-
tions, and business partners.
Many thanks to all of them.
God Bless,
David D. Durastanti

of Schools

should go, And even when he is
old he will not depart from it. -

Patricia Detwiler, City Commission, Seat 1

Thank you for allowing me to be on the city commission this
past year. I believe our work there has been good for our : -~
community and I'd like to continue serving you.

Working on a budget in a depressed economy was ,
accomplished with a good working relationship among fellow
commissioners. We moved forward by refinancing the cost on
two city bonds (2001A & B), saving us over 1.7 million. We hired
a new city manager who is taking the necessary steps to ensure
that city business is being conducted in an efficient and :
stream-lined manner.

I can really appreciate that. I've been a self-employed business woman for over 30 years,
mostly in construction & development. Over the past 12 years I've focused on hospitality in
the bed & breakfast industry, owning a B&B, becoming president of the Florida Bed &
Breakfast Association for 3 years and now its managing director.

I've learned a lot sitting on the planning & zoning board, the community redevelopment
board, the central Florida regional planning council and on the city commission.

Given my background I can appreciate, for instance, the need to come up with a 10 year
capital improvement plan for our electric utility, as well as to apply for a Community block
grants to help with maintaining our water distribution system. We cannot be passive in
moving our community forward, ignoring problems until there is a crisis. There are 7.5
miles of sidewalks, 27 miles of streets, 2800 utility poles & 70 miles of utility lines to be
maintained

As we look into the future and consider the possibilities, I'd like you to envision Sustainable
Tourism and how it will bring more dollars and jobs to our Community.

In this sense, I've been working with Peace River Explorations to transform the historic train
depot into a tourist info center, art gallery, fossil museum & gift shop at no cost to the city-
the first step in a larger plan.

There is more to do on developing this concept. Picture what could be if we all worked
together.

Dare you take up your cross and

at the Java Cafe. Rotary International has 1.2 million members worldwide, and the 2012
motto is "Peace Through Service." Rotary International President Sakuji Tanaka said
the Japanese tradition of putting the needs of society above the needs of the individ-
ual helped his country rebuild after the tsunami and earthquake in March 2011.
Rotary's goal is to promote peace and see the needs of others as more important than
our own. A key Rotary iniative is to eliminate polio worldwide. There were 350,000
cases annually in the early 1950s, 1,600 in 2008, and 650 in 2011. The Salk vaccine pre-
vents polio, with only three countries reporting new polio cases Afghanistan,
Pakistan and Nigeria. The local club this year won the district best service project
(POW/MIA dinner), most unique project (World War II Honor Flight and POW/MIA din-
ner), and most outstanding club president (medium size clubs). From left are Dr. Tom
Wade, retired college professor; his wife Ann Wade, who had polio at age 7; past club
president and assistant district governor Sue Birge; and Joe Jones. There are 45 clubs
in the district.


U.S. 17 4-LANING UPDATE


PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY
Scott Gilliard, project superintendent for Ajax Paving, gave a report Tuesday, July 10,
to the Wauchula Kiwanis Club about 5.5-mile four laning project from 7th St. in Zolfo
Springs to 2,000 feet south of Sweetwater Rd. The $17.15 million project began
September 2011 and should be completed in late June 2013. A traffic lane switch may
occur in late August 2012. The project is 38 percent completed and includes two new
bridges across Gator Branch plus some new water and sewer lines in Zolfo Springs
between 7th St. and 10th St. The sewer and water lines are a joint project between the
state and the town. There are 11 fenced ponds along the route on the state property.
The current corridor will become the southbound portion. The divided two-lane pairs
will have 12 inches of base, 12 1/2 inches of limerock, 5 1/2 inches of structural
asphalt, and 3/4-inch of friction asphalt. Phase II of the four-laning will go out for bids
in the first half of 2013 and will be four-laned south to the Hardee/DeSoto line. Phase
III is within the town limits of Zolfo Springs from 7th St. north to Wauchula State Bank
and is perhaps five years out. The current project has about 30 employees. From left
are Lex Albritton, Scott Gilliard and Kevin Sanders.

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...
75 YEARS AGO
A. Yancy Teachy, local attor-
ney, favored the Wauchula
Kiwanis Club on Tuesday at
noon with an address on the his-
tory of the city of Wauchula. A
native of North Carolina, Mr.
Teachy was one of the first set-
tlers here and gave an interest-
ing account of the history and
growth of this city, together
with some of his personal expe-
*riences.
A change in management of
the Wauchula branch, Great
Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.,
occurred this week when Jack
B. Walker, a well-known Wau-
chula young man, assumed the
responsibility as manager of the
concern. Mr. Walker, a native of
Lakeland, has lived here about
11 years and is a graduate of


Wauchula High School. He is
the son of the late Mr. C.C.
Walker, and Mrs. Walker, who
resides on North Ninth Avenue.

County superintendents from
48 of the 67 counties in the state
closed a week's short course at
the University of Florida
School of Adult Education here
Friday. Hardee county was rep-
resented by County Superinten-
dent T.E. Blackburn, of
Bowling Green, who presided
over a program Friday morning,
"The Transportation Program,"
which was well presented and
enjoyed by those attending the
course.

Many Florida communities
receive cash benefits on non-
federal projects. James E.
Cotton, acting state director of
the public works administra-
tion, has announced that during
the month of June funds
amounting to $817,799.84 were
released in Florida to aid in
financing public works pro-

L CANCER
Q: Does eating more fiber
lower risk of other cancers,
too, or only colon cancer?
A: According to the most recent
update of the AICR/WCRF
expert report on how diet may
reduce cancer risk, the cancer
most clearly related to fiber is
colorectal. There is now con-
vincing evidence that eating rel-
atively high amounts of dietary
fiber lowers risk. However,
fiber could lower risk of other
cancers, too. A recent analysis
of ten population studies,.
involving more than 712,000
women, linked higher con-
sumption of dietary fiber with
lower risk .of breast cancer.
Overall, the women who con-
sumed the most fiber were 11
percent, less likely to develop
breast cancer than those who
consumed the least. In this
analysis, the women in the
highest fiber group generally
ate at least 26 grams of'fiber per
day, which is the minimum rec-
ommendation for good health.
Women consuming the least
amount of fiber generally took
in about 12 to 16 grams per day,
comparable to average U.S.
adult fiber consumption.
Population studies like this one
don't explain how fiber might
provide protection, but other
types of research suggest that
fiber could act from.within the
gut to bind estrogen.and reduce
amounts of estrogen circulating
in the blood (leaving less avail-,
able to promote growth of
estrogen-sensitive breast can-
cer). Fiber could also act by
reducing levels of insulin,
.which seems to act as a growth
factor promoting development
of breast cancer. This analysis
also does not tell us whether"
some high-fiber foods might"
offer more protection than oth-
ers. Vegetables, fruits, whole
grains and beans all offer a vari-
ety of natural plant compounds
that ieem to put the brakes on at
several different points in the
process of cancer development.
Some studies also link higher
consumption of foods providing
dietary fiber with reduced risk,
of other cancers, but there is
much less data on this, and
again, it's hard to separate lower
risk due to fiber consumption
from protective benefits of
other components in vegeta-
bles, fruits, whole grains and
beans. Eating enough high-fiber
foods is clearly smart for over-
all health, whether it's due to the
fiber or not.

Q: I've heard that "hooping"
is a popular exercise. Is this
using the same hula hoop I
used as a child, or is this
something different?
A: You're right, "hooping" has
become a popular form of exer-
cise that people can do in class-
es at fitness centers, while
watching TV at home, follow-
ing instructional DVDs or free-
wheeling to music. Exercise
using a hula hoop is great for
abdominal' muscles and can be a
good exercise for legs and even
arms when' people include
moves that raise the hoops to
'circle up around arms overhead.
The only study I can find test-
ing its aerobic cardio impact
shows results comparable to
most other aerobic exercise pro-
grams, including the popular
boot camp type programs. In
this study, sponsored by the
American Council on Exercise,
people burned about 7 calories
per minute. However, this very
small study involved women
who were intermediate- or
advanced- level hooperss," so
your results may differ.
Although you can do hooping
with the same kind of hula hoop
you used as a kid, you can get
hoops designed to make hoop-
ing either easier or more of a
workout, depending on your
needs. Today's fitness-oriented
hoops come weighted, which.
makes-them move more slowly
around you so they are easier to
control. They are also wrapped
in grip tape, which helps you to
'keep them up around your body.
For beginners, a good choice is
a, larger (41 to 42-inch) hoop
that is somewhat heavier (24-26
ounces) Slightly lighter
;weighted hoops (16-20 ounces)
workl'wdll when you areready
to move faster or want to incor-
porate hooping around arms
and hands; These hoops are
available at many sporting good

Equal Housing Oppoprtunity


By JOAN SEf.A iAN.
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Com-
mission will be run by Rules of
Procedure from now on.
.At its July 5 meeting. the
commission adopted on a 4-1
vote, the nearly 30-page manu-
al which outlines every possible
decision to be made while hold-
ing commission meetings. '
Most of the ensuing discus-
sion involved Commissioner
Grady Johnson's suggestion
that Robert's Rules bf Order be
the chairman's guide to con-
ducting the meetings.
County attorney Ken'Evers,
who had prepared and present-
ed the document, said the
Robert's parliamentarian rules
were so lengthy and complicat-
ed the average person could not
comprehend them.
SCommissioner Dale Johnson,
who is not running for re-elec-
tion, said, "Part of the reason
we're doing this now is that
there may be three :new com-
missioners and many.of them
may not know Robert's Rules.
Grady Johnson said the alter-
native was just to let the chair-
man run the meeting and main-
tain order as he saw fit, giving
latitude to citizens to "call the
shots."
One of the issues on the new
procedures was limiting citizen
comments to two .minutes, or
three, if there weren't many
who wanted to speak. People
would fill out request to speak.
cards before the meeting began,
stating which agenda item they
wished to address. A person
may not speak more than once
on the same subject.
If a citizen brings up a matter
at the end of the meeting, com-
missioners have several op-
tions. They can assign investi-
gation of it to the county man-,
ager, to the commissioner most
involved in the issue or som,
other staff member and have ift
report on it by the next meeting

individually 'addressed to a
commissioner is his/her respon-
sibility to reply: which can be
done by assigning it to the
county manager or bringing it
to a commission meeting.
"I don't feel ft restricts peo-
ple. They will understand that it
gives the public an idea what to
expect. We will not have some-
one jumping up and interrupt-
ing and not letting commission-
ers or others finish speaking."
The new inanual clarifies that
all meetings, regular or special,
are open to ,he public, unless it
is union negotiations or litiga-
tion of some sort. If the com-
mission chambers are not large
enough to accommodate the
public, the nieeting will be
changed to the Agri-Civic
Center. :
Most' meetings .require at
least 24 hours notice to the pub-
lic, press, and commissioners.
The exception, is one called to
declare an emergency, such as
an impending hurricane...
The manual also provides
that the Sheriff or his designee
is the sergeant-at-arms for com-
mission meetings and can fol-
low the chairman's instructions
for a person to discontinue
addressing the commission,, or
to leave the, room, if he/she is
,disruptive. .Failure to do so
could result in a person's arrest.
The rest of the manual deals
with. ranking bids, appoint-
ments and other decisions and
many such factors.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved reappointment
of Paul Roberts and Lavon
Cobb to the Economic Devel-
opment Committee and Vanessa
Hernandez and Joe Albritton to
the. Industrial Development
Authority. Each is for a four-
year term,
However, the commission
was unaware when they made
the appointment that Joe Al-


britton and his family, have
moved to Tallahassee and the
children are enrolled in school
there. County manager Lex
Albritton said he is looking into
the matter.
-learned Chairman Bryant,
who is on the Board of Direc-
tors. will be attending the
Florida Association of Counties
meeting Aug. 15-17 and will
miss the Aug. 16 evening com-
irission meeting. Vice. Chair-
man Sue Birge will chair the
meeting.
-continued to Aug. 2 at 8:30
a.m. a land development code
hearing and the Special
Exception for a liquid natural
gas facility in northwest Hardee
County.
-heard from Robert Cole,
who was on the agenda to dis-
cuss the county manager's job
description. He alleged that
Albritton had violated statutory
responsibilities which are a
third-degree felony. Cole sug-
gested that Albritton's "moral
compass had gone astray and
the confidence people had in
him has been eroded.
The discussion, which lasted
nearly an hour, deteriorated into
a rehash of the Resthaven and
Cattlemen's Arena expenses
from the 2004 hurricanes
Charley, Francis and Jeanne,
causing Commissioner Birge to
say it was misleading to label
the issue the county manager's'
job description and turn it/into'a
forum to rehash the hurricane
accounts.
.Clerk of Courts B. Hugh'
Bradley joined the-discussion to
challenge that all monies were
accounted for when vendors not
from this county were paid
directly. "I suggested to audi-
tors that they look at this and
they made the county include it
in accounting and that it was
paid directly. All expenditures
are supposed to go through my
office."
Frank Kirkland provided
copies of documents already
seen and reviewed by the com-
mi.ionu on the payments, -'the


insurance company paid direct-
ly to vendors for the drying out
and cleanup of county facilities
He also suggested ."the record
should reflect who was attorney
at the time of these misdirected
payments. As soon as I deter-
mined there was missing
monies, I referred it to the State
Attorney's Office. They looked
into it and never sent a written
reply."
Bryant closed the matter,
"This was cleared up and put to
bed long ago. If there is a new
criminal investigation, let'it
proceed." -
-approved on a split 4-1
vote awarding a contract to
Killebrew Inc. for no more than
$36,000 to connect Crystal
Lake Mobile Home Village to
the county's water system 'The
county will piggy-back off a.
Polk County contract because
the park's primary well is bro-
ken. Commissioner Grady
Johnson opposed the motion.
-approved changing the job
description of "Part/Time Tem-
porary" Utilities Operation
Electrician to "Part Time Reg-
ular" position, allowing use of
the position for more than 20
hours a week, and up to 32, if
needed.
-approved on a split 4-1
vote for Emergency Manage-
ment Director Jill Newman to
apply for a $15,000 grant to pay
the majority of cost for an All-
Hazard Crisis Incideht manage-
ment software system. The new
system would offer connectivi-
ty to the Homeland Security
system, within the state and to
other states to track resource
availability during a weather or
incident crisis. Commissioner
Rick Knight opposed the
motion.
-approved application for a
$112,597.35 Firefighters grant
which would install radio
equipment on the Wauchula
Daystar tower and ensure that

They've Got Game: Top Sports Moments Honored


Learning values such as
sportsmanship, teamwork and
responsibility are key elements
of the youth sports experience.
The "Top 10 Responsible Sports
Moments," a program devel-
oped by Liberty Mutual In-
surance and Positive Coaching
Alliance (PCA), is celebrating
the positive values that sports
instill in young people. The
campaign, currently in its sec-
ond year, honors moments that
remind us of the power, impact
and inherent goodness of sports
by compiling a list of the year's
"Top 10 Responsible Sports
Moments."
Jim Thompson, PCA founder
and chief executive officer, in
addition to the author of eight
books on youth sports including
"Elevating Your Game," written
for student athletes, knows how
important youth sports can be in
teaching leadership and respon-
sibility. "Each of the 'Top 10
Responsible Sports Moments'
should serve as a reminder and
inspiration to all involved in
youth sports of the opportunities
we have to create a positive
character-building environment


that shape the character of those
involved."
Here are some of last year's
winners:
St. Mary's of Lynn (Mass.)
ends 100-win streak but con-
gratulates Hingham HS: After
St. Mary's of Lynn lost in the
Massachusetts Division 1 girls
ice ,hockey quarterfinals to
Hingham High School, ending
a 100-game winning streak that
spanned four seasons, 'senior
captain Sabrina lannetti board-
ed her opponents' bus, congrat-
ulated the team that ended her
high school career two games
short of perfection, and prom-
ised that St. Mary's would cheer
them on through the rest of the
state tournament.

ner carries Laker ille South
opponent to finish race: Run-,

meet for Andover High, Josh
Ripley, a junior varsiry runner,
was making his way through
the trail at the AppleJack Invite
when he.heard a loud scream
during the first mile of the two-
mile race. Most of the other
'kids running didn't pay much


attention to Lakeville South
runner Mark Paulauskas, who
was writhing in pain at the time
as they passed by, but Ripley
stopped and carried the injured
runner a half mile back to
coaches and family members.
S Eight-year-old catcher in
Maryland helps scared batter
take his first swing: Eight-year-
old Trevor Yusko, a catcher for
a minor league youth baseball
team in Frederick, Md., was
catching when a player on the
other team was scared to step
into the batter's box. Trevor
called time out, went over to the
boy and gave him a pep talk.
The young man then stepped
into the batter's box, swung at
the next pitch and fouled it off-
a small achievement, but a big
step in his growingconfidence.

Bowling Green To Implement

Two Street Name Changes


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Bowling Green City
Commission on Tuesday, July
10, agreed to implement a 1994
commission decision to rename
two city streets.
Mason Dixon Ave. will
become Doyle Parker Ave., and
a portion of Dixianna Ave. will
become Martin Luther King
Ave. Ordinances were passed in
1994 but the street name
changes were never implement-
ed.
The commission voted 4-0 to
honor the 1994 ordinances.
Commissioner Woody Caligan
was absent.
This means the city will need
to come up with another way to
honor the late Bertha Fulse, a
long-time resident who died
recently at age 104.
Recently the commission
approved the first reading of an
ordinance to rename Mason
Dixon Ave. to Bertha Fulse Ave.
That proposal was somewhat
controversial because some
street residents opposed the,
change for various reasons,
including inconvenience and

that she did not live on Mason
Dixon.
Some residents felt the word
Mason Dixon had racial over-
tones since the name suggested
a dividing line.
The city commission in the
future may consider honoring
Fulse by erecting a monument
or plaque or renaming another
street.
Commissioner Richard Bar-
one said the commission should
get more community input.
Commissioner Shirley Tuck-
er said the city should imple-
ment the two 1994 ordinances
arid honor Bertha Fulse with
another plan.
City manager Jerry Conerly
said the city is cleaning up the
old Centanino lot on Main
Street northeast of City Hall for
a temporary park. A long-term
use of the property could be for
a community building.
He said there is a vacant
building at Pyatt Park next to
the tennis court that'could be a
civic building for residents. The
building used to be for the old
swimming pool which fell into
disrepair and was changed into


a tennis court through a state
grant.
Part of the pool actually
popped out of the ground sever-
al years ago during the rainy
season as water was pumped
out of the pool. The pool opera-
tion has been losing money for
several years and was not popu-
lar with several city commis-
sioners because operating and
repair costs far exceeded rev-
enues.
Due to the Aug. 14 primary
election the August meeting
was changed to Tuesday, Aug.
7. The commission generally
meets the second Tuesday every
month.
In other action the commis-
sion approved the first reading
of ordinances to provide a pro-
cedure for vacating streets,
alleys, easements and other
non-fee interests.
The commission approved
the first reading of an agree-
ment to immediately annex new
service areas when possible or
for future annexation of such
areas if immediate annexation
is not possible.

Cycling For Health And Fitness


In nearly half of developed
countries, 50 percent of people
are obese or overweight. With.
obesity, diabetes and heart dis-,
ease on the rise, now is the time
to take control of your health,
fitness and well-being.
Cycling can be fun, low im-
pact, inexpensive and helps im-
prove health while controlling
weight. It burs around 600
calories an hour and lowers the
risk of heart disease and stroke.
In addition, cycling promotes
psychological well-being. Sev-
eral studies suggest that cycling
leads to reduced stress, im-
proved mental abilities and a
more positive attitude.
To help you get into cycling,
members from one of the United
States' premier professional
cycling teams, Optum Pro
Cycling presented by Kelly
Benefit Strategies, provide these
fitness and nutrition tips: .


Make sure your bike fits:
"Finding the right bike fit is
important for a comfortable
ride," explains Rachel Heal,
Women's Performance Director
and a former Olympian. An
expert can help you find a bike
that suits your body and riding
style.
Ride at your own pace:
Know your limits. If you can't
keep a smooth pedal stroke or
you aren't able to talk or take a
full breath, slow down.
Cross-train for strength:
Men's Performance Manager
and three-time Olympic athlete
Eric Wohlberg suggests adding
lower body exercises such as
single leg squats, lunges, jump-
ing rope and running to build
strength and power for cycling.

Prepare utritioflly for

Recover eflecivdvy after

chameleons because they can ch

Week Ending: July 15, 2012
Rainfall Favorable for Crops and Pastures
Weather Summary: Florida's crops received timely rains to
reduce the stress from hot summer days. All of Florida's Auto-
mated Weather Network (FAWN) stations recorded rainfall during
the week; Most areas had precipitation during several days of the
week. The FAWN stations at Brooksville, Jay, Fort Lauderdale, and
Clewiston recorded just over three inches of rainfall. The stations
at Apopka, Ona, Kenansville, Bronson, Dover, and Arcadia report-
ed between two ard three inches of rainfall. Fifteen other of the 36
FAWN stations reported between one and two inches of rainfall.

Field Crops: The cotton and peanut fields in the western Pan-
handle were in need of more rainfall. In some areas, the insect and
fungal pressures appeared to be higher than normal. In Walton
County, the rainfall was hot always widespread, but the cooler tem-
peratures were helping thie crops. Some fields continued to be in
poor condition. Alachua County producers were hoping for more
rain to improve crops, but it rained less than half an inch. Pasco
County producers observed that crops were doing very well after
receiving more beneficial rainfall. The peanut condition was rated
3 percent poor, 15 percent fair, 67 percent good, and 15 percent
excellent. Peanuts were 67 percent pegged compared to 49 percent
the previous week;:and the fiveyear average of 57 percent.

Fruits & Vegetables: Growers were preparing fields for the
fall :vegetable planting season. The okra harvest continued in
Miami-Dade County. Some fields were being replanted to okra.
Producers were planting sweet potatoes and sunflowers, too. Some
of the low lying fields had standing water after receiving several
heavy rains. Producers were busy marketing mango, avocado,jack-
fruit, and longan. St. Lucie County producers were seeing an end .
,to dry conditions with the recent rains.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, most.pastures in all areas
Were in good condition. Drought was the first limiting factor,'fol-
lowed by disease and some flooding in the central areas. The con-
dition of-the cattle ranged from very poor to good with most in
good condition. In -the Panhandle, pastures were in very poor to
excellent condition with most good. The cattle condition was most-
ly good to excellent. In the northern areas, the condition of most
pastures and cattle-was good. In the central areas, most pastures
were in fair to excellent condition. Pastures in Baker County
returned to normal as the flooding from Tropical Storm Debby sub-.
sided. The cattle were in fair to excellent condition. Cattle in
Suwannee County were mostly good. In the southwest areas, the
pasture condition was fair to excellent, with most in good condi-
tion. Some pastures in Lee County had standing water. The condi-
tion of the cattle was poor to excellent as well.

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 Brooksville
receiving the most at 3.17 inches. Twenty stations received more
.than an inch and seven of those received more than two. Alachua
recorded the least with 0.33 of an inch. The majority of the citrus
region remains drought free, with the exception of an area extend-
ing from the north shore of Lake Okeechobee southwest to the gulf
coast of Collier County which was still experiencing abnormally
dry conditions, per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated July 10,
2012. As late orange harvesting has ended, fertilizer application,
summer oil spraying, young tree care and grove maintenance were
the,primary grove activities.

3 Track Youth Go To Junior Olympics


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They range in age from seven
to 16, spending hours practic-
ing and practicing.
Three of the runners from the
local Mark Anthony Track Club
have excelled and qualified for
the Junior Olympics to be held
in Humbel, Texas July 28-Aug.
4.
Coach James Carpenter,
founder and mentor of the club,
is proud of all his runners and
pleased that three, of them have
the opportunity to advance.
Dylan Davis, 10, of Wau-
chula, and the Knighten broth-
ers Jabari, 10, and Jalen, 8, of
Avon Park, are among the best
of the best.
Davis specializes in the
1,500-meter, nearly a mile run,
His qualifying time was 15.34
but he and his coach are aiming
at 15.28 to be in contention for
a medal at the Junior Olympics
in his sub-bantam division.
The Knighten, brothers are
more involved in the shorter
distance running. Jalen, 8, is
20th in the 400-meter in the pri-
mary division, while Jabari, 10,
is in the top 10 in the 400- and
the 800-meter runs.
Other runners in the Mark
Anthony club participate in the
same events and have had their
achievements. Unlike, Davis
and the Knightens, they haven't
peaked yet and are gradually,
surely developing their tech-
niques, pacing and other as-
pects of training.
There are four girls in the
club, Lianne Albritton and Lela
Borjas are both 10. Miracle
Thompson and Jaycen Baptiste
are 11.
The. boys in the club are
Justin Cruz, Ty Blandin and
Wilney Francois, all seven;
Andrew Wilson and Jalen
Knighten, both eight; 'David
and Jabari Knighten, both 10;
Terrance Butler and Nathan
Ahrens both 11; Isaiah Golden,
13; Warren Buckner,. 14; and
Jerry Browdy, 16.
When Coach Carpenter is
busy with the spring track sea-
son at Hardee High, he is assist-
ed by Reginald Knighten of
Avon Park. The track club sea-
son starts in November and
actually begins meets in
Jatiuary, this year at the Jimmy
Kerns meet in Gainesville.

Dylan Davis, 10, (runner second from right) begins to make his move in the 1,500-meter!
run recently. Ranked :10th in the nation now, he hopes to improve that in the Junior
Olympics in Texas.


They move to the Trailblazer
Invitational in Tampa, the
Florida Elite in Altamonte
Springs, the Bay-Tap In Tampa.
and district'qualifiers in Jack-..
sonville in June. The state qual-
ifier is in late June, also in
Jacksonville.
Carpenter keeps in touch with
the AAU (Amateur Athletic
Union) and the USA Track &
Field, registering his club as
early as possible, even if he
doesn't yet know exactly which
athletes can attend a specific
meet.
Much of what is done would
not happen without contribu-
tions from the Hardee Athletic
Foundation, says Carpenter,
noting also that A&D Minimart
is also a big contributor. Cost of
hotels and travel mount up.
The Club is named after
Mark Anthony, a Hardee gradu-
atein the early 1990s. He grad-
uated from college in the mid-
90s and began teaching at
Pioneer Academy in Zolfo
Springs, 'where Carpenter is
also a teacher. They became
friends and continued their
friendship even u henry Ahthon)
moved to Mobile, Ala. in the
early 2000. He died in a motor-
cycle accident in 2006.
That spurred Carpenter to
start the local club in his honor,
naming it after Anthony, Car-
penter likes track because it


Crissy is a female Chihuahua.

When the West was .wild, a
rancher went to town for suii ies.
He hitched his team, andwent into
the general store to shop.,
Suddenly a gunslingerengaged
a stranger in a gun fight, and the
shots caused the horses to bolt in
terror.
Instantly the farmer ran'for his
team. He stopped his horses, but
was trampled under their feet.
"Was your wagon worth it?"
asked the doctor.
"Yes," said the dying man. "My
children were in it."
Should you ask God if it was
worth it to send His Son to die for
our sins. I know He'd say."Itwas!"
And the Bible says, "There is joy
in the presence of the angels of
God over one sinner that repents."


So Many Windows

A beautiful church is not
just another building; it
stands as a testimony to
God.When you enter in you
find peace and refuge. On a
day of worship you find
uplifting prayer and
magnificent music, a
gathering of fellow
worshippers sharing the
power of God's Word
together. In days of harsh
reality, God is the ideal that
gives comfort and meaning
to our souls and His house is
the sanctuary where we find
strength for our daily climb
through life. Make the climb
that will make the
difference as you climb the
steps to your chosen house
of worship every week.

Atchley Puts Plans On


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
With a host of other projects
on his plate, Wauchula's rela-
tively new city manager, Terry
Atchley, has taken time with his
staff to work on three manuals
for the city.
An eight-page Code of
Ethics, a 36-page safety and
health manual, and a 288-page
purchasing manual were pre-
sented at the July 2 meeting
workshop to give commission-
ers time to review them before
the regular meeting on July 9.
Commissioner Russell Smith
initiated discussion of the Code
of Ethics, wondering if it could
wait a month for review by the
League of Cities and/or some
other review groups. So, it will
be held over to the Aug. 13
meeting..
In its introduction, the Code
of Ethics says "all citizens and
businesses of Wauchula are en-
titled to fair, ethical and ac-
countable local government." It
outlines the responsibilities of
commissioners, member of city
boards, employees and others to
conduct themselves in profes-
sional and personal conduct to
avoid any appearance of impro-
priety, above reproach and
refraining from abusive con-
duct, verbal attacks on the char-
acter or motives of others,
avoiding conflict of interest and
communicating appropriately
about public resources.
Commissioners felt all new
employees should be made
aware of the safety and health
concerns and responsibility to
report any unsafe conditions,
accidents or injuries without
retaliation or penalty. Anyone
failing to do so could be given a
written warning, written warn-
ing and suspension without pay
.or termination.
The safe practices expected
are specified for each type of
job, whether it requires motor
vehicle operation, machinery,
welding, use of pesticides,
paints and other materials, elec-
tric line repairs and many other
such situations.
The 16-chapter purchasing
manual covers every possibility
from petty cash, stockroom,
classification, emergency requi-
sitions, vendors and procure-
ment. Again, all new employees
and,lnew supervisorss are expeqt-
.d t9:be given special, training
in these procedures.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved the pension
meeting minutes and third-
quarter financial report. The
city's pension plan reserves are
one of the best in the state,
funded at 93.2 percent, unheard


of in most cities. Commission-
ers authorized use of the re-
serve, if needed, to fund
increased employee premiums
from 13.5 to 15.1 percent.
-presented the July curb
appeal award to Ponger-Kays-
Grady Funeral Home, which
"has made substantial improve-
ments inside and out."
-accepted the bid of $5,500
for a surplus property on North
Ninth Avenue, allowing the city
to recoup the amount they had
spent in code enforcement liens
and foreclosure. The dilapidat-
Sed home of it was removed and
the bid will include the property
only, which has a tax-assessed
value of $8,719.
-approved resolutions on
interlocal agreement with Har-
dee County for treatment of
landfill leachate water; accept-
ing the $103,000 federal grant
for the updated Airport Master
Plan; and giving 60-day notice
of termination of Department of
Corrections work squads,
enabling the city to save
$114,000.
-approved promotion of
Olilvia Minshew, planning and
development director to assis-
tant city manager, "to more
accurately reflect the work she
actually does," and accepted
the retirement of Police Chief
William Beattie, effective Sept.
30, 2012. He will be using ac-
cumulated vacation and com-
pensatory time until then.
During ensuing discussion of
the city manager functioning as
police department manager,
commissioners wanted this not
to be indefinite position. Atch-
ley said it would only be as long
as necessary for him to get a
handle on expenses as the
police department's budget is a
huge portion of the total city
budget. Budget workshops are
July 30 at 4 p.m. and July 31 at
5 p.m. when millage and the
final budget will be approved.
-decided to go out for bids,
requests for qualifications and/-
or requests for proposals for
city attorney; code enforcement
magistrate; Community Devel-
opment Block Grant adminis-
trator; and pension attorney
services.
-learned there were 18 city
hydrants out and 233 in service.
There, is, 1p9, area of the city
without working hydrants with-
in a four-block area. The prob-
lem is a dozen hydrants are
from the 1940s-1950s and parts
for them are no longer avail-
able. Atchley said 12 new ones
will be purchased in the next
fiscal year and parts from 12
old ones will be used to fix the
other half dozen.


Gas Prices: Don't Panic,

Get Perspective


While many motorists may
panic when gas prices rise, a lit-
tle planning, perspective and a
few simple steps can go a long
way to combat the price of fuel:
Keep your car properly
tuned to improve gas mileage
by an average of 4 percent.
Keep tires properly inflated
and improve gas mileage by 3
percent.
.* Replace dirty or clogged
air filters and improve gas
mileage by as much as 10 per-
cent.
Replace dirty spark plugs,
which can reduce mileage by
two miles per gallon.
Change oil regularly and
gain another mile per gallon.
Driving behavior also impacts
fuel efficiency..
.-* Observe the speed limit.
;Gas mileage decreases rapidly
above 60 miph.
o Avoid "excessive idling.
Idling gets zero miles per gal-
lon. Warming up the vehicle for
one or two'rfinutes is sufficient.
Avoid quick starts and
stops. Aggressive driving can
.lower gas mileage by 33 per-
cent bn the highway and 5 per-
'cent in the city.
Consolidate trips. Several
-short trips taken from a cold
start can use twice as much gas
as one longer multipurpose trip.
Don't haul unneeded items.
An' extra -100 pounds in the


trunk reduces fuel economy by
1 to 2 percent.
"It's easy to be alarmed by the
cost of gas, but when motorists
take a look at the big picture,
they'll see that much of the
increased cost can be offset by
adjusting driving habits and
implementing a proactive vehi-
cle preventative maintenance
plan," said Rich White, execu-
tive director, Car Care Council.
"Fuel economy is related to
vehicle maintenance.
"A 20 cent increase in the
price of a gallon of gas results
in roughly $2 more per week
the average commuter must
spend," continued White.
"Simple, inexpensive mainte-
nance and altering the way you
drive goes a long way to offset
soaring fuel prices, keeping
more money-in your wallet."
The Car Care Council is the
source of information for the
"Be Car Care Aware" consumer
education campaign, promoting
the benefits of regular vehicle
care, maintenance and repair to
consumers. For a copy of the
council's "Car Care Guide,"
which is now available elec-
tronically, or for more informa-
tion, visit www.carcare.org.
Mindful driving and main-
taining your.car can go a long
way toward keeping travel
expenses down, even when gas
prices are up.

January, with Commissioner
Pattie Detwiler opposing, say-
ing it should wait until April so

Inside Out
By Chip Ballard


IS YOUR NEIGHBOR A SOCIOPATH?
There is a book by Martha Stout, Ph.D., "The Sociopath Next
Door," which I believe would behoove every adult to read.
When this book was recommended by a friend, I immediately
associated the title with another book, "The Stranger Beside Me,"
a biography of Ted Bundy written by his one-time friend, Ann
Rule. Bundy and Rule once worked side-by-side as volunteers on a
suicide-watch hotline.
But as I began reading "Sociopath Next Door," I realized it
had very little in common with "The Stranger Beside Me" other
than the similarity of the title. "The Stranger Beside Me" follows
Bundy's bloody footprints across the country and traces law
'enforcement's hunt for one of history's most notorious serial
killers. "The Sociopath Next Door," on the other hand, deals with
what a sociopath is, what makes him tick and how his antisocial
personality disorder affects others.
The dictionary definition: "A sociopath is a person with an
antisocial personality disorder ('psychopath' was once widely used
but now has been superseded by 'sociopath')."
So sociopath and psychopath are interchangeable, only now
sociopath is more commonly used. But the dictionary definition is
inadequate in defining sociopath. It takes Dr. Stout 218 pages
Basically, a sociopath is a person who has no conscience. Dr.
Stout says, "What distinguishes sociopaths from the rest of us is an
utterly empty hole in the psyche, where there should be the most
evolved of all humanizing functions, a conscience." These individ-
uals with the empty holes in their souls can "without the slightest
blip of guilt or remorse do anything at all."
One out of every 25 people, or four percent of our society, is
sociopathic, Stout writes. Anorexic eating disorders are estimated
at 3.43 percent and deemed nearly epidemic. Schizophrenia occurs
in about one percent of us. Colon cancer, considered alarmingly
high, is about 40 per-100,000.
So, the fact is, "There are more sociopaths among us than peo-
ple who suffer from anorexia, four times as many sociopaths as
schizophrenics, and 100 times as many sociopaths as people diag-
nosed with a known scourge such as colon cancer."
Not all sociopaths are homicidal maniacs, but all have wants
and desires just like everyone else. Think of your own wants and
desires and imagine being able to go after them using any means at
your disposal: manipulating, lying, cheating, stealing, even killing
without an inkling of guilt or remorse.
Stout says she has learned that the damage caused by the
sociopaths is deep and lasting, often tragically lethal and startling-
ly common. "Working with hundreds of survivors, I have become
convinced that dealing openly and directly with.the facts about
sociopaths is a matter of urgency for us all."
Because sociopaths can lie and cheat ard do anything at all
without guilt, fear, shame or any interference from a human con-
science that throws up red flags for most of us, they are usually
very charming and'convincing people. Says Robert Hare, a profes-
sor of psychology at the University of British Columbia:
"Everyone, including the experts, can be taken in, manipulated,
conned, and left bewildered by them. A good sociopath can play a
concerto on anyone's heartstrings. .. Your best defense is to under-
stand the nature of these human predators."
Because of the empty holes in their souls the lack of a con-
science sociopaths are ice-people; to them other human beings
are no more than props on a stage to be used and manipulated for
their own self-centered ends.
Stout says her hope is, "This book will play some part in lim-
iting the sociopaths' destructive impact on our lives. As individu-
als, people of conscience an learntto recognize 'the sociopath next
'door,' and with that knowledge work to defeat his entirely self-
interested aims. At the very least, they can protect themselves and
their loved ones front his shameless maneuverings."
If you know 1,000 people, odds are 40 of them are sociopaths.
Thus my earlier assertion: "The Sodiopath Next Door" is one
of a handful of books I've come across that I believe would
behoove every adult to read.

AUNT BEA LIVED TO LOVE
Sometimes a TV show can remind you of life's little truths.
That's what happened to me while watching a rerun of "The Andy
Griffith Show."
If you don't recall this 1960s television series, it took place in
the idyllic town of Mayberry and featured Andy Griffith as Sheriff
Andy Taylor. a widowed father who lives with his son, Opie (Ron
Howard), and his Aunt Bea (Frances Bavier).
This episode revolved around what happens when Andy hires
Malcolm, a visitor to Mayberry, to help Aunt Bea with her chores
around the house. Aunt Bea, for those who don't know, is like a
lovable grandmother who cooks, bakes, cleans and generally cares
for her loved ones. Andy hires help because he thinks she's over-
worked and deserves to be a woman of leisure.
As Aunt Bea's life of leisure progresses, we witness her
becoming less joyful and ultimately losing her spark for life. While
Andy meant for her to relax more, Aunt Bea finds she has lost her
purpose. She lives to care for her loved ones and didn't mind all the
seeming impositions. There's a scene where Opie comments that
Malcolm sings while he does his work. Malcolm responds that he
sings when he works because it gives him purpose which makes
him happy.
Opie then says that Aunt Bea used to sing a lot when she
worked, but now she doesn't sing at all. Realizing that he has actu-


ally done a disservice by taking on so much work, Malcolm leaves
Andy's household, and Aunt Bea happily resumes her old routine.
This story resonated with me because Aunt Bea reminded me of my
grandmother.
Even when she hit her 90s, she wanted to stay busy. She would
cook for herself, my uncle, and sometimes for me and my parents.
She was always dusting, sweeping, and washing the porch.
Much of her life had consisted of this kind of caretaking, espe-
cially the many years when my grandfather suffered from
Parkinson's Disease. We thought she'd ease up when she got older,
and she did. to a degree. When she reached 85, she stopped shov-
eling snow (though she did sweep the light stuff off the porch). I
couldn't understand why she didn't take it easy more because we,
her family, always offered our help.
Then I saw this episode of "The Andy Griffith Show" and it
registered. My grandmother's work gave her life purpose. She had
loved ones for whom she could do things. That made her happy.
And she was still in surprisingly good shape in her 90s, so this
approach was obviously working.
Even in the final months of her life when she was unexpected-
ly diagnosed with terminal leukemia, we let my grandmother con-
tinue to do some cooking because it made her feel useful. I tried
telling her to relax so she could preserve her strength, but that just
rhade her angry. Her hardworking, independent streak remained
with her until her final couple of weeks.
Sometimes I think it would be nice to do nothing. And for an
occasional short period of time, it is nice to do nothing. But we all
need some kinds of activities to give our lives purpose, especially
when those activities are geared toward people we love.

Sthe water quality of nearby creeks and rivers. As an
environmental specialist, I'm part of a team that monitors
these bodies of water to ensure that the water quality
is sustained or even enhanced. Mosaic takes great
,, care to meet Florida's clean water standards. Because
stewardship is an integral part of what we do.

SAnd I see to it Itha. the iob is done right.

Notice of Development
of Rule Making
The Southwest Florida Water
Management District (SWFWMD)
gives notice that it is developing
rules as part of a statewide effort
headed by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and joined by all
five water management districts
(WMDs), to increase consistency
in the consumptive use permit-
ting (CUP), minimum flows and
levels (MFLs), and water supply
related programs of the WMDs.
This rule development is pro-
posed to be coordinated with
similar rule development by the
other WMDs throughout Florida.
This rule development will make
appropriate rule amendments to
SWFWMD's Chapters 40D-1,
40D-2, 40D-8, 40D-21, and 40D-
22, FA.C., and the Southwest

statewide; (3) providing consis-
tent protection of the environ-
ment; (4) streamlining the appli-
cation and permitting process;

protects water resources, includ-
ing water conservation. Add-
itional information about the
statewide CUP consistency initia-
tive is available at DEP's website
at: www.dep.state.fl.us/water/wa-
terpolicy/cupcon.htm.

ment will include, but may not be

ing subjects: (1) consumptive
use permit criteria; (2) limiting
conditions (permit conditions by
rule); (3) permit thresholds; (4)
permit types; (5) permit duration;
(6) water conservation require-
ments; (7) annual allocation
requirements and other rules
needed to provide continuous
reasonable assurance through-
out the duration of a permit; (8)
modification of permits; (9) 10-
year compliance reports; (10)
compliance monitoring and
forms; (11) application forms;
(12) permit fees to address relat-
ed changes to permit thresholds
or permit types; (13) procedural
rules .in chapter 40D-1, F.A.C.;
(14) water shortage.plan rules in
chapter 40D-21, F.A.C.; (15) mini-
mum flows and levels (MFLs)

ROADKILL
Pocahontas' native language was Algonquian, from which her
friend. Capt. John Smith, borrowed the word "aposoum," which
meant "white animal" and referred to an unusual New World crit-
ter with a pouch, like a kangaroo.
Later, more English colonists followed suit, adopting their
neighbors' words for animals unknown in Europe: caribou, moose,
chipmunk, raccoon, muskrat, woodchuck, terrapin, skunk.
The opossum stands out in this crowd. Uncle Remus features
him in a story about the rescue of an unappreciative snake.
"Why are you going to bite me?" asks Brer 'Possum. "I took
the brick off your back, got you out of that hole, putyou in my
pocket to get you warm..."
To which Brer Snake responds: "You knew: I was a snake
before you put me in your pocket!"
No good deed goes unpunished!
In scientific terms, the Didelphis virginiana is North America's
only living marsupial: a mammal with a "pocket."
Early mammals came in three varieties: egg-layers, pocket-
nursers and our kind. The first, including the duckbill platypus,
died bff. The second, the "marsupials," thrived ohly on the ancient
continent of Gondwana. As Planet Earth continued to shake, rattle
and roll, Australia split off from this and took most of its marsupi,
als along with it leaving just a few, of which one, our opossum,
found its way north to our parts, about five million years ago.
"A living fossil," say some, pointing to the didelphons of the
Late Cretaceous.
"Delicious," say others, amateurs of down~iome Southern
cooking And it is this group who brought dinner a strange,
pocketed "white animal" with the prehensile tail along with
them out West, where some escaped, were fruitful and multiplied.
Peace River Explorations is a non-profit citizens'organization cre-
ated to promote and grow a "clean industry" in Hardee County,.
tourism. It markets the county's historical and natural assets,
including Jbssil hunting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, horseback
riding and more. Volunteers will be needed to 'ian the visitor's cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Wauchula Train Depot.
