By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
A 47-year-old Zolfo Springs
woman has been accused of
stealing over .$30,000 in gov-
ernment funds.
Jackie Bandy, of 3330
Suwannee St., was arrested by
Det. Sgt. Kevin Brock of the
Wauchula Police Department.
early Friday afternoon. He
charged her with multiple
counts of grand theft, uttering a
forged instrument and petit
theft, for 140 counts in all.
Twenty-three of the alleged
offenses are misdemeanors,
Capt. Thomas Harris described,
while 1.17 of them are felonies.
Bandy, meanwhile, remains

Jail pending bond.
Harris, spokesman for
Wauchula police, said Bandy is
accused of writing checks to
herself on Hardee Soil & Water
Conservation District and Peace,

The three-day "holiday"
means a break on taxes on
school clothing, footwear, and
certain accessories for $75 or
less and on certain school sup-
plies for $15 or less.

Whatley of the Wauchula Police
Department has charged him
with committing a lewd and las-

Spinks was booked into the

Schools
By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The budget is going down but
taxes are going up.
Such was the word coming
from the Hardee County School
Board on Monday as it met to
propose its budget and millage
rate for 2012-13 in time for the
first scheduled public hearing
on the matter.
That test is set for this com-
ing Monday at 5:10 p.m. in the
School Board Meeting Room at
230 S. Florida Ave. in Wau-
chula.
Though the local board has
held the line on the taxes it con-


trols, the state Department of
Education is requiring the board
to raise the "local effort" por-
tion of the total millage rate.
Thus, the entire increase from
2011-12's millage rate of 7.604
to the tentative 2012-13 rate of
7.654 comes at the hands of the
state.
Meanwhile, the local board is
reducing its $61.5 million 2011-
12 budget down to the proposed
$59.1 for 2012-13.
The School Board's tax rate
for Hardee County property
owners is divided into four por-
tions: required local effort,
which is the amount set by the
State; basic discretionary oper-
ating, which is set by the local

Green Street Park, located at
723 Green St.
The 9-year-old was playing
there with her sister and broth-
er, he described.
While the two girls were
playing near the swing set,
Spinks rode up on his bicycle
and then walked over to the
girls. He held up his hand to
give the 9-year-old a "high
five," but held onto her hand
after doing so, Harris said.
The little girl pulled away, the
captain noted, but Spinks per-
sisted. The man allegedly put
the child in a bear hug and
touched her chest area, he
alleged.
She told Spinks "no," he said,
and tried to walk away.


Instead, Harris charged,
Spinks grabbed the child by her
shorts, pulling her back and
over to him, then attempted to
get her to sit on his lap. She
again said "no," and Spinks
eventually let her go.
The child left Spinks and
went over to a man playing with
his children near the merry-go-
round. She told the man Spinks
had touched her, and he advised
the child to go home and tell her
mother.
She did, and police were
called.
Spinks reportedly "continual-
ly cried and kept apologizing
for his actions" during an inter-
view with Whatley at the police

To Vet



For EDC
By MICHAEL KELLY
Qf The Herald-Advocate
The Economic Development
Council has agreed to let the
Hardee County Chamber of
Commerce be in charge of vet-
ting potential companies look-
ing to locate here and seeking
financial help from the
Industrial Development Auth-
ority.
Specifics about how the vet-
ting process will take place are
not finalized, but both groups
have agreed to move forward
with this private-public partner-
ship.
Chamber Executive Director
Casey Dickson said this is an
opportunity for the Chamber to
take on a bigger role with eco-
nomic development in the
county moving forward.
The vetting will be done by
the Chamber's Business Advo-
cacy Committee, which is made
up of Chairman Steven South-
well, Derren. Bryan, Bo
Conerly, Clay Cobb and Steve
Johnson.
Once this private committee
completes its examination and
evaluation of the companies, it
will turn over all its information
and make a recommendation to
the EDC/IDA boards.

>. Kelly's Column
By Jim


Stephen Covey, died July 16 in Idaho following complications
from an April bicycle accident which knocked him unconscious
despite wearing a helmet. He and his wife Sandra had 9 children
and 52 grandchildren.
He was famous for writing "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective
People," and he earned up to $25,000 for motivational speeches.
His advice included thinking win-win, being proactive, take
responsibility for your life, don't blame others for your quality of
life, begin with the end in mind, and seek to understand before try-
ing to be ,understood,' wrote John Hillkirk of USA Today.
Congratulations for a life well lived.

Syndicated columnist Rheta Grimsley Johnson recently wrote
about Franklin Delano Roosevelt and some of the late president's
quotes displayed at his memorial in Washington, D.C. They includ-
ed:
"The test' of our progress is not whether we add more to the
abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide
-enough for those who have too little."
"Better the occasional faults of a Government that lives in a
spirit of charity than the consistent missions of a Government
frozen in the ice of its own indiference." ., o m
"Happiness lies not if _the. mere pOssessibn of money; it lies in
the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort." ,
FDR, who had polio as a child, served as president of the U.S.
following the Great Depression and during World War II. A
Democrat, FDR's administration is credited with creating
Medicare, Social Secority and farm subsidies three great chari-
ties that survive today. The government gave thousands of young
men jobs of building parks, roads, dams, etc. and sent most of the
money back to their families in an effort to reduce joblessness and
get America growing again. Highlands Hammock is one of the
many state parks created by this program.
FDR left a great and lasting legacy.

Japan attacked America with an aerial bombing on U.S. Navy
ships at Pearl Harbor in 1941, officially drawing our country into
World War, II. A few years later Japan surrendered following the
dropping of atomic bombs on the cities of Nagasaki and
Hiroshima.
After the war America helped rebuild Japan which became a
world economic and industrial powerhouse.
2012 International Rotary President Sakuji Tanaka of Japan
said his country changed to embrace peace which helped his coun-
try grow and thrive. The Japanese people became more tolerant and
sought greater understanding and to prioritize the needs of the soci-
ety over the needs of the individual.
"Our sense of gratitude drives us to understand others better
and to see the good in everyone. Through better understanding, we
learn to respect others. With mutual respect, we live with others in
peace." His Rotary motto is "Peace Through Service."
Japan is recovering from the earthquake of March 2011.
Rotary is seeking to eradicate polio'worldwide.

Chris Rich transferred from Hardee High School after his jun-
ior year and began the summer as fourth string wide receiver at
Lakeland High'School. He worked hard and in the fall became a
starter, and his team won the state championship in 2006 with a
thrilling win over Fort Lauderdale St. Thomas Aquinas.
HHS has played for the state football title in 1965, 1988 and
1995 but lost to Bradford County Starke, Live Oak and
Jacksonville Bolles. Rich is the only Hardee Countian with a state
football title ring. He said Lakeland head coach Bill Castle lets all
players earn their position and playing time based on performance.
Rich and Travis Kilpatrick spearhead the local Heartland
Hurricanes who have 90 boys and 60 girls ages 4 through 15. There
are five teams and cheerleading squads. The season is Aug. 11
through Oct. 27, and games will be played at Hardee Wildcat
Stadium.

Three local political races will be decided in the Aug. 14 pri-
mary election.
For sheriff, incumbent Arnold Lanier is opposed by Thomas
Santarlas.
Dottie Conerly and Vickie Rogers are running for clerk of the
circuit court.
For School Board in District 3, incumbent Teresa Crawford is
opposed by Paula Ortiz.
For School Board in District 2, incumbent Mildred Smith is
opposed by Marilyn Browdy Morris and former superintendent of
schools John E. Terrell. If no one gets over 50 percent of the votes,
a runoff will be held in the general election Nov. 6.
A complete primary election ballot is printed in this week's
newspaper. A sample ballot has also been mailed. Early voting
begins July 30. A voter guide also appears this week.

EDA FunAs All Grant Applications


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
,The Hardee County Eco-
nomic Development Authority
voted unanimously Tuesday
morning to award funding to all
seven applicants seeking grants.
The board had more than $4
million available to disperse
and funding all seven projects
will total $3,520,722, leaving
more than $500,000 to be car-
ried into the next funding cycle.
Peace River Explorations
was awarded one job creation
grant for $45,000.
Pattie Detwiler, representing
PRE, said if the grant was
awarded she would like to have
the museum operating by Oct.
1.
Some concerns were raised
over PRE not submitting finan-
cial information or a budget, but
Detwiler said the organization
has more than $150,000 in the
bank and could afford to front
the costs before getting the
reimbursement by the EDA
over a two-year period.
Detwiler said she did not plan
to publicly advertise the posi-
tion, which drew further criti-
cism from board members Sue
Birge and David Royal. Both
felt the job should be advertised

if we find it needs correc-

since grant money was being
used to fund the position.
The city of Bowling Green
was awarded $425,772 to pro-
ceed with Phase, 2 of the
Centanino Industrial Park,
which was bequeathed to the
,city about 15 years ago. The
grant will be used to run an
eight-inch Water line from U.S.
17 to Lake Branch Road and up
to the park.
Bowling Green Mayor Perry
Knight, who is also an EDA
board member, said the funding
would make the park ready to
be developed by having both
water and sewer available on-
site. "This is so when some-
thing comes along, we can act
on it by already having the
infrastructure in place," he said.
Knight also said running the
water line ultimately could
allow the residents living south
of Hardee Street in Bowling
Green to hook up to the city
water supply and come off pri-
vate wells.
The Hardee County Eco-
nomic Development Council
was awarded $150,000 to oper-
ate the economic development
offices.
The grant will allow the EDC
to lower its funding reliance
from the County Commission
to approximately $100,000
from the $245,000 it was bud-
geted to receive in the coming
fiscal year.
The Industrial Development
Authority was awarded $1 mil-
lion for a "spec" building that is
not already designated for a
specific company. It could
either be used to construct a
new building in the Commerce
Park or to buy and renovate an
existing building in the county.
Lightning Bay Construction
was awarded a $1 million grant
that will go through the IDA to
construct a building in the
Hardee County Commerce
Park. Light,.ig Bay is a
hydraulics and pneudraulics
company currently based in
Tampa that is looking to expand
its business.
The infrastructure project by
the IDA to expand sewer and
water services along the entire
U.S. 17 corridor will be receiv-
ing $500,000 in funding plus an
additional $150,000 from a pre-
vious grant that was not spent
and was returned to the board.
The EDA had previously
awarded the' $150,000 to


Hardee County to develop a
master plan for water and
wastewater in the Vandolah
area in anticipation of a major
future development.
County Manager Lex Albrit-
ton said when the economy
took a downturn and develop-
ment was postponed, the county
did not feel it was necessary to
proceed with the plans. He
expects it will be years in the
future before it would be need-
ed, and the county would rather
the money be reallocated
toward the utility corridor proj-
ect, which was unanimously
approved.


The IDA was also awarded a
$400,000 .grant to construct a
pre-treatment plant and sher-
iff's outpost in the Commerce
Park.
The cohabitated building will
pre-treat wastewater coming
out of the park before it enters
the Wauchula Hills utility sys-
tem, which has experienced
problems after receiving dis-
charges out of the park.
The Sheriff's Office'substa-
tion will provide better security
in the park and will be used by
deputies patrolling the north
end of the county and for some
special operations.


Chamber said it will look into a
general history of the applicant,
a business plan analysis, needs
of the company, number of jobs
created, compatibility in the
county, competition to existing
businesses, the net benefits to
the county, and a protection
plan if the business fails.
Once the civic organization
makes its recommendation, it
will be up to the county's eco-
nomic development board to
move forward with negotiations
related to all monetary incen-
tives being sought by the com-
pany.
Economic Development Di-
rector Bill Lambert said that up
until now, he and EDC
Coordinator Sara Pelham have
been trying to vet potential
companies interested in located
here.
He thinks the private-public
partnership can only enhance
economic development for
Hardee County.
With the Chamber vetting
the potential companies want-
'ing to locate in Hardee County,
it will free up more of
Lambert's time to focus on
recruiting new companies here,
he said.
"The EDA has agreed it will
be a work in progress and has a
long ways to go before being
finalized, but it will be a good
thing," Lambert said.
Lambert also was in favor of
segregating the people making


funding decisions versus the
people looking at the viability
and compatibility of a company.
At the EDC meeting last
week, Dickson said the
Chamber would also be inter-,
ested in vetting companies for
the County Commission and the
Economic Development Auth-
ority in the future.
The Chamber will not be vet-
ting companies moving into the
county that are not seeking
assistance from the economic
development boards.
In other action, the board
also:
-was told that the purchase
of the former PRECO head-
quarters has been finalized.
The IDA bought the building
and 3.3 acres for $996,000,
which was the appraised value,
and will soon begin remodeling
after closing the deal last week.
The nearly 20,000-square-
foot building will be divided for
multiple occupants, with the
intention of creating a technolo-
gy park.

Lambert said he is getting
plans of how to partition the
building to have separate power
meters and air conditioners, and
to allow for very secure Internet
hookups for multiple tenants
sharing the building.
Bluewater has previously
agreed to be the first tenant in
the building once renovations
are complete.

game was between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn
Dodgers on August 26, 1939.

state's required 5.406 to come
up with the total ad-valorem tax
rate of 7.654.
That amounts to a 1.34 per-
cent tax increase. But, the
School Board is quick to note,
that "required local effort" is
what makes the local district
eligible for a bonanza of state
funding, this time meaning
-about $22.8.A i -lion- i state
, grant money: "'.
As for the capital outlay por-
tion of the total tax, the board
explains it will go toward reim-
bursing the General Fund for
maintenance, renovation and
repair; upgrading air-condition-
er controls; replacing the air
chiller at Zolfo Springs Ele-
mentary School; and purchas-
ing three new school buses.
Also on that capital list is the
insurance premiums for the dis-
trict's facilities.
Budget numbers come in at
$46.4 million for the General
Fund, $10.4 milliofi for Special
Revenue, $488,374 for debt
service, $1.8 million for Capital
Projects and $9,007 for Private
Purpose Funds.
The General Fund's balance
on June 30, 2013, will be at
over $7 million.


Notice is hereby given that the
Southwest Florida Water Man-
agement District has received
Environmental Resource Permit
application number 664926 from
Brent Setchell, RE. of the Florida
Department of Transportation.
Application received: May 3,
2012. Proposed activity: Road-
way improvements. Project
name: US 17 from DeSoto C/L to
CR 634 (Sweetwater Rd.). Project
size: 163.37 acres. Location:
Sections 3, 10, 15, 27, 34
Township 25 East, Range 36
South, in Hardee County.
Outstanding Florida Water: no.
Aquatic preserve: no. The appli-
cation is available for public
inspection Monday through
Friday at the Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
Tampa Service Office 7601 US
Hwy. 301, Tampa, FL 33637-6759.
Interested persons may inspect a
copy of the application and sub-
mit written comments concerning
the application. Comments must
include the permit application
number and be received within
14 days from the date of this
notice. If you wish to be notified of
agency action or an opportunity
to request an administrative hear-
ing regarding the application, you
must send a written request refer-
encing the permit application
number to the Southwest Florida


dolah and Wauchula Hills utili-
ty departments and the solid
waste enterprise or landfill
- fund.
Transportation is budgeted
for $9,056,266 and economic
environment at $270,470.
Human services are expected
to cost $1,290,064 and include
some costs of operating the
county health department, Med-
icaid and supplemental funding
for many local non-profit agen-
cies.
Culture and recreation ex-
penses will tally $1,371,578
and the court system will cost
the county $1,198,552.
Expenditures are budgeted to
total $39,422,577 and the
remaining $10.5 million in the
budget is held for. transfers,
contingencies, restricted rev-
enues and fund balances but are
classified as expenses.
Also included in the budget
is a 2 percent raise for all coun-
ty employees.
Commission Chairman Min-
or Bryant waited until the end
of the three-day workshops to
bring up the idea of the raises.
Last year he said employees
were given a 2.5 percent raise
by the county, but the state
made each government employ-
ee start contributing 3 percent
of their salary to the retirement
fund so it resulted in a half per-
cent reduction in salary.
Bryant felt it was not fair and
instructed Janice Williamson,
county finance director, to look
into what it would cost to give
the raises.
The raises for all 191 em-
ployees under the county com-
mission and the additional Tax
Collector, Property Appraiser,
Sheriff's Office, Supervisor of
Elections and Clerk of Court
employees will increase the
budget by approximately
$300,000.
Commissioners unanimously
approved the raises and the ten-
tative budget.
Before the budget is official,
it must be advertised and go
through two public hearings
before becoming final.
A full report on the individ-
ual budgets which make up the
total county budget can be
found in next week's edition.

The Florida Highway Patrol
reports a fatality occurred early

According to the brief infor-

happened at 6:04 a.m.
It was on U.S. .17 South of

water Road intersection.
The highway was closed dur-

to work 4.5 hours per day.
Sherry Albritton. federal pro-
grams coordination and student
services director, is completing
the estimated $700.000-
$720.000 SIG application for
monies which will purchase a
variety of materials and elec-
tronic equipment, and pay sup-
plements for teachers with extra
duty time.
The contracted work day is 8-
a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Anything
beyond that requires a supple-
ment. Kelly said about 17 or 18
positions would require a sup-
plement for the 15-30 minutes
addition to the day.
The new grant includes "high
stakes testing," state assessment
that comes with financial at-
tachments. When schools do
well, they get money, when
they don't they get more atten-
tion, even if it is negative, he
said.
"Hardee High historically has
not done as well as the state


thinks it should, said Kelly.
HHS has had a series of people
from outside the district coming
in for the last two years with
suggestions and directions for
school grade improvements.
This year, the SIG grant comes
with a requirement to increase
classes to 51 minutes, allowing
more instructional time for each
teacher, squeezing an additional
30 minutes of instruction into
each day. It will give students
an additional 25 minutes of
instruction in each class each
week.
It is specifically designed to
"pull grades up," said Heather
Lang, Hardee union president,
,Selden Spencer, union vice
'president, and Dick Daggett,
union coordinator for the five-
county area. Some of the teach-
ers are not enthused about the
schedule change because they
have students who come in
early to get extra tutoring or a
time to.answer their questions.

Q: Is it true that glutamine
supplements help fight crav-
ings for sweets?
A: Glutamine is an amino acid
(a building block of protein)
that we get from many foods. I
cannot find any evidence from
scientifically sound research
that shows glutamine supple-
ments are effective against
cravings, despite the personal
stories on the Internet that say
so. You may discover other
ways to decrease cravings if
you figure out when they occur.
Are your cravings emotion-
based? The more you turn to
sweets to cope with emotions,
the more you will crave them at
such times. Work on non-food
strategies instead. For some
people, sweets cravings come
when they are tired or haven't
eaten meals that satisfy their
hunger/When you address the
problem, these reasons for crav-
ing disappear, The ,ups -and'
dowfi of blood sugars may cre-
ate cravings in some.people; try
going for a ten-minute walk
before you reach for sweets.


Studies show that many people
can reduce the tempting power
of sweets by limiting the variety
available. Keep just one flavor
of ice cream or cookies around
at a time, or perhaps even only
one of any kind of sweet at a
time. Some people find that
using sweets only for dessert,
rather than snacks, makes it eas-
ier to limit them and decreases
cravings. One study found that
after two weeks of eating
chocolate twice a day, 15 to 30
minutes after a meal, chocolate
cravers reduced their desire for
chocolate. But both cravers and
non-cravers who ate chocolate
daily between meals ended up
with increased desire for choco-
late. The researchers suggested
that regularly using chocolate to
satisfy hunger teaches us to
crave it. If true, that could apply
to other sweets, too.

Q: How often should I weigh
myself?
A: Some research suggests that
weighing yourself regularly can

To help, here are some tips
from the Weight-control Infor-
mation Network (WIN).
Give Teens the Right Fuel
Make half of the plate
fruits and vegetables.
Encourage them to eat
more foods like bananas and
beans for potassium, and yogurt
for calcium. These nutrients
help to build strong bones.
Suggest water or fat-free/
low-fat milk instead of sugar-
sweetened drinks.
Start Strong and Plan Ahead
Teens should start their day
with a healthy breakfast.
Pack a healthy lunch. This
might be a turkey sandwich on
whole wheat bread and an
apple.
Tell teens to take it easy on
.,pizza, sweets and sodas. These
have lots 9fugar, salt and fat.

help you reach and maintain a
healthy weight, both as a
reminder to continue behavior
changes you make and as a way
of catching and reversing small
weight gains before they
become big ones. The frequen-
cy of weight checks that is most
helpful is still an unanswered
question, although a recent
review of six studies concluded
that somewhere between daily
and weekly weight checks can
support weight loss and
decrease weight regain. Clearly
it does no good to weigh your-
self more than once a day; all
you see are shifts in water bal-
ance, and checking weight this
often is a mark of someone pos-
sibly becoming un-healthfully
obsessed with their weight.
Experienced registered dieti-
tians (RDs) say that many fac-
tors go into the effects that


weight checks have for any
given individual. If you have
had disordered eating patterns
or much emotional "baggage"
from a long history of going on
and off diets, and for people in
their mid-20s and younger, fre-
quent weight checks done on
their own may do more harm
than good in some cases. One
important key is how you use
what you learn when checking
your weight: the goal is not to
find fuel for self-criticism, but
feedback that can lead to better
eating and physical activity
habits. Consider carefully how
weight checks have worked for
you in the past, and perhaps dis-
cuss the question with your
healthcare provider or' a regis-
tered dietitian, to decide what
will work' best for you at this
particular time in your life.


Easy Riding, Easy On The Wallet


Here's a hint on how you can
go further and spend less:
Switch to two wheels.
Save Gas
Whether you're commuting,
running errands or taking a road
trip, you can get more out of a
gallon of gas 50, even 70
mpg when you travel by
motorcycle or scooter.
Save More, Get More
There are further advantages.
For one, the cost of owning a
two-wheeled vehicle is many
thousands of dollars less than
having a four-wheeler. Great
scooters can be found in 'the
$3,500 to $6,000 range, great
motorcycles in the $4,000 to
$8,000 range. Maintenance
costs much less. So do registra-
tion and insurance. Even park-
ing is easier and less expensive.
Those may be some of the
reasons the Motorcycle Indus-
try Council sales data shows
that motorcycle sales and usage
have gone up lately-though
many riders add that it's also
just plain fun to do.
"A motorcycle or scooter can
be getting two, three, some-
times even four times the fuel
economy of the vehicle in the
next lane," said the MIC's Ty
van Hooydonk. "The savings
only start at the gas pump and,
at the same time, a rider can


actually look forward to com-
muting by bike."
More Tips
However you travel, it pays
to:
Ride or drive carefully.
Speeding, rapid acceleration
(jackrabbit starts) and rapid
braking can lower gas mileage.
Avoid idling. Idling gets 0
mpg.
Telecommute or stagger
work hours. If you can, avoid
sitting in traffic and wasting
gas, especially during peak rush
hours.
The good kind of infla-
tion. Keep your tires properly
inflated.
Combine trips. If you
combine errands into one trip,
you ride or drive fewer miles
and use less fuel. Several short
trips taken from a cold start can
use twice as much fuel as a
longer, multipurpose trip when
the engine is warmed up and
efficient.

motorcycling the right way,

lifelong learner.

Ever wonder what a Pre-Arranged and or
a Pre-Paid Funeral or Cremation is.

j A Pre-Arranged Service of your choice is
where you sit down with a Licensed Funeral
Director or Licensed Pre-Need Counselor and
create a file at the Funeral Home with all of'
the answers to the questions that will be asked
when you pass away. Like where you were
born, your parents name (mother's maiden),
what casket or other merchandise you would
like to have, and what type of service you
would like to have. No money is needed to
Pre-Arrange your wishes.

A Pre-Paid Service is the same as a Pre-
Arranged Service but, you take it one step
farther by paying the cost up front and locking
in the price of the service and merchandise'.
The money is put in to a trust and held there
until your death. Any Funeral Home may
honor the Pre-Paid Contract no matter where
you took it out in the U.S., Canada and many
other places. The Funeral Home does not keep
the money and the checks should not be made
to the Funeral Home, but to the company that
they use to Trust your Pre-Paid Services.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Wow, our VBS started off
with a bang! There were about
90 in attendance on a Sunday
night with a gully washer going
on right at the time it was to
start. People did not seem to
mind getting wet as they ran in,
but us old folks can no longer
run so we just use the umbrella!
Donald and Mary Samuels
were not at Fort Green Sunday
morning. They went to Mount
Pisgah to attend the ordination
services of their nephew, Joey
Taylor. If the name sounds
familiar he is the son of Janie of
the Double J Restaurant. Don-
ald said he had been in the mil-
itary, worked in the Pentagon
and. now was working for
Grady Judd. He said he was a
fine young man who would be a
great pastor. We are happy for
his family.
Mary Samuels got a good
report last Friday from her doc-
tor, who had said before he had-
detected additional problems
but they were not there now.
Mary explained the power of
prayer!
We had a good crowd at
Church Sunday morning..Little
-Addie Sonier was present-with
iher parents ,and she had on an

sandals! Little Sadie Ann Mc-
Quaig looked real cute attend-
ing her first VBS.

has done it again! They put
down tar or something and then
put .shell or rocks on. Ollie
Roberts Road. They have signs
up that read "loose gravel," and
you better believe it nieans
what it reads. It is a constant
pinging as you drive on it.
Mildred Cooper is back home
and is now under Hospice care.
If any of you do not know about
Hospice care, it is really good. I
always thought it was only for
someone at death's door but
that is not true anymore. Mrs.
Mildred was tired of the blood
being drawn real often in the
hospital, as her veins are hard to
use.With Hospice, they just take
care of you and bring your med-
icine. You no longer'have to go
to the drugstore. That alone is a
big help.

to sing to her. Tim Casey had
written a song entitled "Mil-
dred's Song," which was very
pretty. Charles Abbott, Sherman
Cooper and Shuree Rawls sang
with Tim as he played the gui-
tar. Then Charles, Sherman and
Tim each sang another song. At
the end everyone sang "Eastern
Gate," and Mrs. Mildred was
mouthing the words! If my
memory is correct, I believe
Zula Cooper always said it was
her favorite song.
Others attending were Arden
Rawls, Edith Bassett, Norma
Alejandro, Faye and Randy
Davis, Lynda Abbott, Barbara
Casey and me. Of course, Gwen
Albritton and Donna Chancey
were'there. Donna stepped in a

messed up her ankle. She puts
things off, like most of us, and
is going to the doctor Monday.
We all think it is broken, and
she is Gwen's mainstay helping

SThe Fifth Sunday Night sing
will be this coming Sunday,
beginning at 6. This will be our
annual ice cream contest to see
who makes the best homemade
ice cream. There is always, a
coveted golc scoop or 4. crown!
I understand Kasey Powell.is
planning on bringing three dif-
ferent churns.
The ice cream will be imme-
diately following the sing, and
if you can't make ice cream
'please bring finger foods or
cake or cookies. It will be good
so if you don't go to church,
come on out for a good night of
the Gospel through singing and
eating.
Today, July 26, would have
been my older brother's 77th
birthday!
Mark your calendar for our
annual Back to School Bash on
Aug. 11 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Lunch will be served and there
will be a big water slide and the
opportunity to dunk the preach-
er! It's always great fun.
The drawback is this is the
same date as when Pete and
Patsy Hughes celebrate their
50th wedding anniversary at
New Hope. I consider it a bless-
ing from our Lord to be able to
celebrate a 50th anniversary,
and am very happy for them!
Pray for one another.

Gun Threat At Hardee Junior High School

In today's society, with the shootings at the movie theater in Colorado last week; Virginia Tech University, Columbine
High School, and many more in the past, the Sheriffs Office needs to be more vigilant than ever to keep our citizens safe.
With this in mind, I am troubled by the following facts:
,.QAp ,3J3,, Ls2b12,aJwr asaa.serious,incidentrat-theT.Hardee Junior High' Schol that does not appear .tohave been
_Jandled. properlfy.~.yourcurrent sheriff. The sheriff's office was notified to-'d S l rior td 'te incident that students who
were gang members were planning to bring guns to the school in an attempt to kill a rival gang leader. The sheriffs office
had the necessary intelligence regarding the suspects involved and your current sheriff failed to resolve the crisis before it
came to the school grounds endangering hundreds of lives. How about securing a search warrant for the suspect's house?
On the morning of April 13th, sheriffs deputies quickly responded to the school to investigate the incident, but the lack
of a properly staffed School Resource Officer Program complicated matters and made the situation worse. This not only
jeopardized the safety of our children and teachers, but also risked the lives of the responding deputies.
Sheriff Lanier and Major Dey FAILED to appropriately lock-down the school and take the necessary law
enforcement counter-measures to investigate and quash the incident before it jeopardized lives.
When parents learned, via word of mouth, of a possible gun battle at the school, they immediately began responding
to the campus. According to data received from a public records request from the school, 165 students were signed-out
after the start of first period. That means a minimum of 330 people (165 students + 165 parents) could have been
scrambling around the office in chaos. With no lock-down in-place, they all could have had easy access around the
school. Guess what? The armed offenders would have had the same access to the campus, our teachers, and our children!
Can you imagine the number of people that could have been injured or killed if an active shooter(s) were on the campus?
Why didn't these command officers order the school to be locked-down? Although the school administration normally
makes the initial call, the sheriff can over-ride them when there is an iri-progress emergency. It is BASIC PROTOCOL
for the sheriff to lock-down a school after being notified of a serious threat, such as,a gang-related shoot-out on campus.
Locking-down the school means nobody enters or leaves the campus until the threat is assessed, confirmed, dispelled
and/or neutralized. Locating and arresting the armed suspects) without allowing a risk of injury or death to our children
and school staff should have been the primary goal.. Deputies should have been positioned at all corners of school and at
every entry/exit point. The window shades should be closed, doors to classrooms locked, and appropriate signals launched
by each teacher to,responding deputies. EVERY person on that campus should be identified and their business on the
grounds scrutinized. Teachers and school administrators, did the sheriff order this to happen? An "All-Call" should have
been automatically triggered immediately notifying parents of the incident and providing them with instructions. Parents,
did you get this automated call? My investigation reveals, that no such call was generated and that other basic protocols
were not implemented by your sheriff.
The manner in which your sheriff handled this incident is a prime example of what NOT to do during crisis situation
at a school campus. Thank-God the threat didn't go forward, because there could have been MASS CASUALTIES on
that campus if there were active shooters! The next time might be an executed attack and many of our children, teachers
and/or deputies could be killed because of the apparent complacency, disinterest and/or lack of training provided by your
current sheriff when it comes to school safety.
Here is what should have happened on that frightful day: The campus should have been immediately locked down. A
head-count of the children should have been made cross-referencing the daily attendance list. There should have been
staging areas set-up away from the'campus for the media and the parents. A public jiformation officer, whom the sheriff
doesn't have by the way, should have been addressing the parents' concerns and media questions. A room-by-room search
for the alleged known offenders and guns should have been undertaken. Fire-rescue should have been notified by the
HCSO and staged close to the campus but out of harms-way. It does not appear that ANY of these standard procedures
were implemented.
The teachers, administrators and responding deputies at the school did not cause this problem. The sheriff and his
administration should take the blame for potentially exposing our children to violence because it is their responsibility
to install a program to protect our schools. They should have taken the time prior to a crisis situation to properly certify
their deputies as School Resource Officers (SRO's) and consult with the school board regarding the initiation of a school
safety plan. I made a public records request for the certifications of the deputies that the sheriff says are SRO's and found
that only one had the MINIMUM mandatory level of training to be on our school campus as an SRO! See the sheriff's
confession in the 'News" section of my website!
Should you elect me as your new sheriff, I will ensure that we have properly trained school resource officers on ALL of
our public school campuses. I will implement a certified school resource officer program and work with the teachers and
administrators at the schools so we can all respond appropriately during a critical incident. I am certified as a Master
School Resource Officer, having earned the highest level of training by the Florida Attorney General's Office. The manner
in which the sheriffs administrators handled the incident at the Hardee Junior High School on April 13, 2012 should not
have happened and will not happen under my command...I guarantee it! The protection of our children, teachers and
deputies is serious business!

Burdened? There's Help

For School Supplies!


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
That first day of school is
drawing nearer and nearer.
With this day come several
expenses that have to be made
in order to get your children
ready for their first day. New
clothes, a book bag and, yes, all
those new school supplies are a
requirement.
These extra expenses can be
a heavy burden to single par-
ents, or even to families with
both parents but who have to
stick to a strict budget.
Single mom of three Tracy
Dansby understands this situa-
tion fully well, and that's why
she decided to set up "Help For
School Supplies."
Dansby was buying school
supplies for her own kids when
she started thinking about those
families who can't always
afford those extra costs. She
had donated supplies before to
other organizations, but she
wanted to do more. This is
when she began her plea on
social media.
She set up the group "Help'
For School Supplies" on Face-


book and asked all of her
friends to help her raise sup-
plies to ease the burden on
struggling parents.
Dansby is accepting folders,
paper, pens, pencils, rulers,
markers, crayons, colored pen-
cils, notebooks, erasers, scis-
sors, glue sticks, highlighters,
binders, index cards, backpacks
and more. Currently they are in
most need of loose-leaf paper,
backpacks and pencils.
There are 25 kids who
Dansby is helping, but she is
willing to continue helping
more as long as she is still capa-
ble of getting supplies together.
Although it was Dansby who
came up with this idea, it has
taken a group effort to pull the
fundraiser together. Her moni,
Brenda Rymanowicz, has
stored all of the supplies they
have gathered so far in her shop
and her friends, Tracy Daniels
Lang and Tealishia Owens,
have helped by spreading the
word and gathering many sup-
plies.
If your child is in need of
supplies you can just contact
Dansby through her Facebook


page or by calling her. There
will be no income verification
and no limit to the age or grade
of kids receiving help. Dansby
plans to give supplies away
until she runs out.
She will also '.p the group
on Facebook going all year so
that way she will be able to
keep in contact with those who
are in need or people who want
to keep donating.
There are several dropoff
centers in Hardee County and
even one in Avon Park: Lang's
Service Center, 1007 U.S. 17
S.; Toby Ellison Hair Salon,
313 W. Main St; Advance Auto
Parts, 905 U.S. 17 S.; Aaron's
Rent-A-Center, U.S. 17 North

,S.; Dollar General in Avon
Park, 904 U.S. 27 S.; and Bowl-

items you can donate or what

Speed Changed on 2 Major Roads


CRASH INJURES 2


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Speed limits have been
increased to 60 mph on Steve
Roberts Special and Polk Road.
The new 60-mph limits are
not what people are driving but
are the maximum allowed by
state statutes, said county engi-
neer Ken Wheeler as he brought
the matter before the Hardee
County Commission at its
meeting last Thursday evening.
Wheeler explained that any.
change in posted speed limits
must be based on engineering
and traffic studies and these
were done on both roads, but
cannot exceed the state estab-
lished maximum of 60 mph for
county and" municipal roads.
In the ensuing discussion
Wheeler said Steve Roberts
Special is posted 35 at the east
end and 45 at the west end.
Studies show a maximum speed
of 93.8 and over 80 percent of
drivers going 66.6 mph on that
road.
After final discussion, Steve
Roberts was increased to 60
mph except at the west end
from, Garza Road into Zolfo
Springs, which will continue at
45 mph..
On Polk Road, now posted 45-
mph, the maximum.speed re-
corded was 99.6 mph and over
85 percent were clocked at 79
mph. There was someone ex-
ceeding 85 mph at least every
hour during the study.
The speed limit will be upped
to 60 mph, except on the two
curves at the beginning of the
road leaving town, and that will
remain 45 mph. Wheeler said
speed limit signs are black and
white and are maximum allow-
able speeds. Yellow and black
posted signs are advisories,

based on what that designed
curve will safely tolerate.
In a moment of levity, one
resident said it depends how
sharp the curve and whether it
is an auto or a motorcycle driv-
ing. County attorney said the
driver should "just lean harder
and lean on the throttle." An-
other resident noted a similar
problem on the county road
leading to Solomon's Castle,
where the outer bank is gravel
and a motorcycle can slide in
that gravel. Wheeler promised
to look into that situation.
The last discussion was on
where Steve Roberts Special
intersects with Parnell Road,
which is posted at 45 mph and
25 on a one-lane bridge. Com-
missioner Grady Johnson said
the tield sign on the south side
heading north needs to be big-
ger to be noticed. Wheeler said
it would be redone in compli-
ance with the county's sign
manual.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-declined to support a resolu-
tion suggested by Miami-Dade
County regarding the use of
"pink slime" in meat products.
Actually it is meat rendered and
trimmed, with the fat byproduct
bricked and sometimes mixed
in hamburger and other meat
products. Staff from the Cattle
Range Station and Florida Cat-
tlemen's Association say it is
safe, said Commissioner Rick
Knight.
Commissioner Minor Bryant
said major food stores such as
Publix is voluntarily not using it
in their hamburger and using
the name "pink slime" is just to
arouse opposition to it.
-approved Resolution 2012-
16 extending current engineer-
ing. agreements with Aim
Engineering & Surveying, Inc.,
Chastain Skillman Inc., Hunter
Engineering Inc. and Kimley-
Horn & Associates Inc. for
.another four-year period.
Wheeler, county engineer/-
public works director, said there
are four pressing projects and
these four have completed all
their contracts successfully and
under budget in the past. The
provision to extend the con-
tracts were written in the origi-
nal contracts, subject to agree-


ment of all parties.
Resident Frank Kirkland
objected to continuing with
Kimberly-Horn, saying the
company had never provided
results from their work on the
visioning process the county
paid them for. Besides, they
referred Waste Generated Pro-
ducts to Bill Lambert and the
Industrial Development Author-
ity, said Kirkland.
Wheeler said the four compa-
nies are used on a rotating basis.
depending on their speciality.
Originally there were five
firms. but Wade-Trim has gone
out of business or merged with
another.
-accepted a list of the ongo-
ing public works projects the
county has underway and stage
each is in. Some are still in
engineering, some awaiting bid
returns, some waiting for mate-
rials. The list includes Hardee
Lakes Park improvements, the
records storage building, ball
fields, five-acre extension at the
landfill and seven road projects
in several stages.
-recessed for union- negotia-
tions before closing the meeting
for the evening.

TWo people were injured July 12 at noon when their 2011 Kia sedan was struck by a
2011 Chevrolet truck. The Wauchula Police Department reports Rebecca Selby, 59, of
Sebring, was driving the Kia in the middle lane on U,S. 17 when she attempted to turn
onto Orange Street. Roy Pearce, 42, of Okeechobee, was traveling in the outside lane
when Selby turned in front of him, said Ofc. Jonathan Corwin. The Kia's left-front door
was struck by the Chevy's right-front bumper. The vehicles came to a stop northeast of
the intersection, off the road. Selby was trapped in the vehicle but freed by emergency
medical workers. A passenger of the sedan, Richard Taylor of Wauchula, received
minor injuries. Both he and Selby were transported to Florida Hospital Wauchula, said
the report. Pearce and his passenger, Shiela Conde of Ocala, suffered no injuries.
Charges were filed against Selby, Corwin said.

jects. Graduated high school in 1951, at
age 17. Then left and went to St. Louis,
Mo., 100 miles away.

activities were available at your
school?
A: Didn't do any, but football was

Q: Did you play any sports, if so,
what kind?
A: No, worked most of the time.
Had a-job afterschool and on week-
ends.

"Number, please?" or would connect
you elsewhere if it was long distance.
Q: What was your first job? How
much were you paid?
A: Worked for a phone company for
30 years, since 1952. Was paid a lowly

TAKE A CLOSER LOOK!


Help Me Put My Lifetime
of Leadership & Business
Experience To Work For
Hardee County's Future!

The Clerk of Court is a serious manage-
rial role which demands a broad-based
knowledge of all areas of management.
It's not a place for on-the-job training.

Proven Leadership Built On Life Experience

a resident and business leader, I call Hardee County my home, and I am
concernedfor our future together. On my first day in office, I'm ready to
assume that responsibility with a plan of action and a track record of
proven success." Dottie

My 3-Point Strategy for Excellence in the Clerk's Office Starts on Day One:
SLeadership in Growth through participation, cooperation and teamwork'
with other Government entities.
> Full accountability and transparency to the people in all matters of
public interest produced within the guidelines of Florida law.
SExcellent and forward thinking customer experience at all touch-points.

OPERATION ROUND UP


Living


ANGUS AWARD


COURTESY PHOTO
Dream Oaks Camp in Bradenton won $3,200 in the latest
grant from Peace River Electric Cooperative's "Operation
Round Up" charitable foundation. The camp, in its 12th
year of operation, allows children with special needs and
chronic illnesses to enjoy a camp experience while
strengthening social skills, building self-esteem and
gaining greater independence. Above, a camper exam-
ines a trail "find" with a counselor. Dream Oaks Camp,
owned and operated by Foundation for Dreams, will use
the funds to install 12 shower chairs in its seven on-site
cabins. Operation Round Up is a program made possible
by PRECO's members, who "round up" their electric bills
to the next dollar, with the extra cash going to charity.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
There are six days for work,
but the seventh day is Sab-
bath, pure rest, holy to God.
Exodus 31:15 (ME)
FRIDAY
(Jesus said), "Come to Me,
all you who labor and are
heavy laden, and I will give
you rest. Take My yoke upon
you, and learn from Me; for I
am gentle and lowly in heart,
and you will find rest for your
souls."
Matthew 11:28-29 (RSV)
SATURDAY
He who dwells in the shelter
of the Most High (God) will
rest in the shadow of the
Almighty.
Psalm 91:1 (NIV)
SUNDAY
Therefore, a Sabbath rest
still awaits the people of
God; for anyone who enters
God's rest, rests from his
own work as God did from-
His.
Hebrews 4:9 (NEB)
MONDAY
But you must be careful to
obey Me, says the Lord ...
but you must keep the
Sabbath as a holy day and
not do any work on that day.
Jeremiah 17:24 (NCV)
TUESDAY
"Now come along to some
quiet place by yourselves
and rest for a little while,"
said Jesus, for there were
people coming and going
incessantly so that they had
not even time for meals.
They went off in the boat to a
quiet place by themselves.
Mark 6:31-32 (PME)
WEDNESDAY
Have two goals: wisdom -
that is, knowing and doing
right and common sense.
Don't let them slip away....
With them on guard, you can
rest without fear.

ISSUE: Mandated by the Supreme Court, E-filing of court documents is on the
horizon for Florida Clerks of Court as we move toward a paperless
environment.
P2/ACT, E-filing of court documents for attorneys in the areas of Civil, Probate,
Small Claims and Family Law division begins April 1, 2013 with
Criminal, Traffic and Juvenile divisions will begin on October 1, 2013.
E-filing service for the general public remains in the future.
?DEEInF PAT Our office began accepting e-filing on February 22, 2012. We
.E IMPACT are one of 50 out of 67 Clerk's offices in the state that have

this important procedure of e-filing. Hardee County Clerks'
technology is on the cutting edge and rivals any clerk in our
technological achievements.

Former Zolfo Springs Police Chief

Endorses Santarlas(R) for Sheriff


"lhomas Santarlas is the man for the JOB!"
"Dr. Santarlas has the required skills of a successful law
enforcement administrator. He takes community-ori-
ented policing seriously and will quickly earn the trust
of the community. I personally know Thomas Santar-
las and have worked with him on some police-related
projects. I know he will be open to the public at-any
time to speak with them about law enforcement issues.


)3fl1iil I worked in Hardee County for over 10 years as a sworn
law enforcement officer and-the leadership at the sheriffs
office and some of the surrounding agencies has been as
you would say "less-than desirable" and it seems that no one wants to fix the problems. I
know without hesitation that Thomas Santarlas will break that cycle of doing under-handed
deals and work with the residents of the county to make it right again. He will make it so
law enforcement officers in Hardee County will enjoy coming to work and encourage them
to pursue ALL criminals. Thomas Santarlas is the man for the JOB!"

Letter To The Editor

A Fictional Tale

About Two Boards


Dear Editor:
As the fictional story goes,
the two optimistic' young men
were bright with enthusiasm
and an awkward hope as they
approached the Board. Short on
cash and fancy four-color slide-
out brochures, they were still
handy with a power point slide
show. For they were selling an
idea and if enthusiasm counted,
brochures were unnecessary?
Little matter the idea was yet
a seed not ready for market. Not
ripe. Not yet in bloom.
However, this is the informa-
tion age with high stakes and
high rewards. Why not, they
thought as the receptionist
showed them to the Board
Room. "They will be right in.
Please have a seat across from
the projection screen. I assume
you will be showing some
slides?" It seemed like a long
time and they were nervous.
The door opens and the CEO
takes his seat at the head of the
big conference table followed
by the president and director of'
commercial applications. One
other smallish gentleman who
looked analytical sat in the sec-
ond row without introducing
himself. He had an iPad. The
CEO says, "So Gentleman,
what are we here for today?"
The talker of the two young
men, began with introductions
and a short resume of schools,
degrees, a common fraternity,
chit and chat. The three plus the
one other tapping a stylus on
the iPad looked tired already.
Without delay the "Why we're
here" transitioned to the young
but clever Techie flipping
through the Power Point -


Keep "Mr. D"


"We believe the niche in infor-
mation storage is shifting from
the user device to remote
servers along with computa-
tional applications. We believe
businesses will pay to host
remote servers for information
sharing with their customers.
We believe we can develop an
application to bring customers
and vendors together before our
competitors ... The slides slid
by and the faithful prayed the
pitch would hit the high note
that brings home the note they
hoped to score.
"So", says the president. "Let
me see if I have the picture
here. You live 80 miles west.
You formed a company I
believe you said, three days
ago? It is a limited liability
company which seems the rage
these days. You have no assets,
no employees, no product and
no customers. You have no col-
lateral for a $2,650,000 loan
you say you need to get your
invention up and running.
You don't have a strong busi-
ness plan, CPA financial state-
ment, references or credentials
in the field. You want the
money in 13 payments begin-
ning in 30 days. You cannot
divulge who owns your compa-
ny and don't plan on reporting
results or take "draws" based on
benchmark achievements. You
have issued ownership shares to
several influential people who
have not invested any money
but stand to make a bundle if
you hit a home run. These shad-
ow investors will use their posi-
tions and connections to influ-
ence business your way. The
investors risk nothing if you go

belly up. The chances of you
paying the money back if you
fail are slim and none. Does that
about sum up your proposal?"
After a little hedging the talk-
er of the two admitted the odds
were long and their track record
was short. He tried the old.
"Someone has to be first" and
"All we need is a chance" and
"If we fail. then at least we
tried."
Then the third board person.
the director of commercial
applications, brought the ordeal
to a conclusion with a short talk
about this being the worst
recession since the Great
Depression; how the money
door slammed shut after the
sub-prime mortgage meltdown;
how loans require 40% equity
at risk to get past the applica-
tion phase; and how an air-tight
slam dunk business plan five
years out gets you to phase II.
The process that takes 60 days
minimum for analysis and
background checks.
Finally, Mr. Board Director
says, "Gentlemen, you need a
private equity ventirt capitalist
with deep pockets willing'to
throw the dice. Your plans
sounds great and you're obvi-
ously going to be successful
someday, but there is not one
ounce of hope you will get pri-
vate sector funding for your
project as presented. I might
add though, there is one other
avenue you might consider... "
Rejected and dejected, the
two entrepreneurs made the call
as suggested. The local govern-
ment director of development
hears the pitch and says, "really,
this sounds like a great idea and
it is so high tech. You know, we
don't have any high tech. We
got low tech here and a farm
economy." So the dance began
and in an amazingly short time,
the talker and the techie were
walking through the door into
the Board Room.
The receptionist says, "They
will be right in. Please have a
seat across from the projection
screen. I assume you will be
showing some slides?" It
seemed like a long time and
they were nervous.
The door opens and the CEO
takes his seat at the head of the
big conference table followed
by the president and director of
commercial applications. One
other smallish gentleman who


looked analytical sat in the sec-
ond row without introducing
himself. He had an iPad.
But, this time one of talker
and techie's shadow investors
sat at the big table and intro-
duced the two as real up-and-
comers. What a difference a lit-
tle grease makes. The same
pitch and power point with not
one brochure or a strong busi-
ness plan. And the angels sang
the glories of high tech. tech-
nology parks. fiber optic trunks,
and 40,000 Kilohertz triga-
bytes. Talker and techie walk
out the board room with a 52.65
million loan and a free building
filled with high tech.
What a difference a different
board makes. The private bank
board wanted 40% down and
indentured servitude for life to
issue a loan with a tight pay-
back schedule. The public
board for development wanted
no commitments or collateral.
All they wanted was to loan
$2.65 million to two bright guys
with few strings. The board
even committed to throwing in
a tech-loaded building to make
it easier to hire a few local serv-
ice representatives.
The entrepreneurs left the
public board room elated. The
CEO, president, director, small-
isi' gentleman and shadow
investor left the public board
room they sit on one day per
month. They all went to lunch
together at the usual place.
Then they went back to work at
their private sector jobs for an
afternoon meeting with a com-
pany looking for a loan. At 2:00
the CEO takes his seat at the
head of the table. The president
sits to his right. The director sits
so he can see the protection
screen. The smallish ...
Same people on both boards.
One private sector for profit.
One public sector non account-
able. Tale of two boards.

An elderly man noticed a
young boy who was walking
his rather strange looking
dog. Puzzled, he asked,
"What kind of dog is that?"
"A genuine police dog,"
came the quick reply.
"He doesn't look like a po-
lice dog to me," said the man.
"Of course not! He works
undercover so no one will
recognize him," answered the
boy.
During these turbulent
times when we are fearful of
terrorists, our government
needs people who work
"under cover." But not the
Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior.
Those who are Christians
begin their new life in Him
with a confession of faith.
Being saved begins with a
confession followed by be-
coming a disciple. Being a
disciple demands that others
see the life of Christ lived
through us.
Confession is not only
something that the Christian
says; it is also something that
a Christian does.
Do others see the love of
Jesus in your life?

A little girl was trying to hug
her father, but he was too tall.
"Bend down, Daddy," she
cried, "so I can reach you."
Before God sent His Son
into the world, He too,
seemed beyond our reach.
God the Father became God
the Son and lived among us
so we could come to know
and understand Him. God
became Man in the Person of
His Son.
g Like us, He was born of a
l woman. But unlike us, He
had no earthly father.
His life, which began with-
e out.sin, was lived without sin.
He went about doing good
It for. all healing the sick and
providing hope for the crises
of life. After all of the good
that He did, He voluntarily
went to the cross and died for
our sins, expressing the love .
of God, His Father.
He's the same today. Right
now, as always, He's reach-
ing out to us with His endur-
ing and unending love.
This is a-great time to reach
out to Him and tell Him we
love Him and are thankful for
all He's done for us.

Faith In Jesus and

Keeping God's Commandments
In Daniel chapter 12 verse 4 of the Holy Bible, it is written that in the time of the
end, knowledge shall be increased. Concerning Bible knowledge, this genera-
tion of people can understand more than those of past times and with that, our
accountability to God has increased accordingly. During the early centuries
there was great suppression of Vital Christian principles by the powerful Pagan
religious system disguised as Christian. When knowledge began to increase,
those Christian truths came back from obscurity one by one and even contin-
ues to this day. Besides righteousness by faith in Jesus, sanctification, and
many other sacred truths, there is one institution that will soon reach the ends
of the earth and will be the final test of loyalty to Jesus Christ, the Creator of
heaven and earth. It is also a vital part of the distinguishing traits of those that
gain the victory over Satan's mark of authority. Everyone who will, can. now see
that it is the faith of Jesus and the keeping of God's commandments where the
long hidden secret is found (Revelation 14:12). Jesus said "if" you love Him you
will keep the Commandments and written there in shows which commandments
He was talking about (John 14:15; Matthew 19:17,18; 1st John 5:3, 4; Matthew
24:20). Since it.is clear to see the Ten Commandments are the ones that He
magnified, we must ask ourself, what is it that happened with those command-
ments that pertains to the Pagan system which Satan works through to cause
people to honor him? Now after a look at the 10 Commandments (Exodus 20:3
- 17), it's easy to see that there is one that has been tampered with. The Pagan
system has attempted to change God's special appointed time to the one it
uses for worship of the sun god. It is the first day of the week or Sunday in con-
trast with the seventh day or sabbath. Since Satan is still around for awhile
longer, know that counterfeit teachings are still around as well. Scriptures which
refer to other commandments are used to cast contempt on that which God
supports. Who are we going to trust and obey? The one that created us? Or the
fallen creature?

Week Ending: July 22, 2012
Light Showers Maintained Crops and Pastures
Weather Summary: Florida's crops received light, but timely
rains during the week All 36 of Florida's Automated Weather
Network (FAWN) stations recorded some rainfall during the week.
The most rainfall fell at Sebring (4.70 inches) followed by rainfall
at Alachua (4.23 inches). Palmdale (3.92 inches), Ona (3.65 inch-
es). and North Port (3.22 Inches). Fawn stations at Arcadia,
Clewiston. Fort Lauderdale, and Frostproof reported between two
and three inches of rainfall. Temperatures averaged slightly below
normal for the week with highs mostly in the low to mid-90s.
Field Crops: Light rains helped sustain the field crops in
northern Florida. Most producers were hoping for more rain. The
conditions of most crops were unchanged from the previous week.
The peanut condition was rated mostly well with some fields rated
fair and some excellent. Peanuts were 75 percent pegged compared
to 67 percent the previous week, and the five-year 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 planted to okra.
Producers were planting sweet potatoes and sunflowers, too.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide the pasture condition
ranged from fair to excellent, with most in good condition. The
pasture condition improved following frequent rains. The condition
of the cattle was fair to excellent with most in good condition.
Citrus: Daily high temperatures remained in the low to mid
90s across the citrus region. All of the FAWN stations in the citrus
growing region recorded some precipitation this week, with
Sebring receiving the most at 4.70 inches. Six stations received
more than two inches. Pierson recorded the least, with 0.17 of an
inch. The majority of the citrus region is now drought free, with the
exception of an area extending from the north shore of Lake
Okeechobee south west to the gulf coast of Collier county which is
still experiencing abnormally dry conditions, as per the US
Drought *Monitor, last updated July 17, 2012. As late orange har-
vesting has ended, fertilizer application, summer oil spraying,
young tree care and grove maintenance are the primary grove activ-
ities at this time.

said, "I'll be remembering

made me feel important and

minded me of our Lord.
We are always on His mind
and in His heart. The Psalmist
reminds us, "The Lord is
thinking about me right now.
0 my God, You are my
helper."
His mind is occupied with
us because He knows our
needs.
His eyes are focused on us
because He watches over us
very carefully.
His ears are open to us be-
cause He hears our every
prayer.
His arms are underneath

us to fall.
His heart is open to us for

"has loved us with an ever-
lasting love."

FROM
T HE
SOWER



A group of firstgrade.stu-
dents was touring-our Gar-
dens. One of them tripped,
fell and skinned his knee. We
carefully cleaned it and band-
aged it. Glad that he didn't
cry, I complimented him by
saying, "You are a brave boy.
You didn't cry."
"I'm not gonna cry," the
boy answered. "I'm gonna
sue." He loved us even when
we did not Ipve Him. And
there is no one in the world
that He loves'more than you.
Some of us swerve to the
left and some of us swing to
the right. But most of us are
centered self centered.
When things go wrong, we
stew, and sometimes we stew
long enough that we want to
sue or try to figure out a way.
to get even or think of some
type of revenge.
It is the love of gold that
makes some people bitter,
but it is the love of God that
always makes people better.
Where have you placed
your love?

MANATEE RANCH RODEO THE FINAL CHAPTER
The actual ranch rodeo only took about 3-1/2 hours over at the
Pabnetto Fairgrounds, but it seems like it's taking months to get all
of the coverage in! At long last, I am on the final column for the
adult teams. But, before I go on: Peck, you were in the photo for
the woods tying event in the last column, but whoever cropped it
took you, Matt and most of Cody out when they made it a vertical
photo, so blame them, not me!
In the last column I left off after the third event, which brings
us up to the double muggin', which is one of my favorite events. I
do enjoy the steers dragging the cowboys around, knocking them
to the ground and often running over them, while the female team
member many times will grab it by the tail and be dragged by her
heels (or on her stomach, too!) while trying to slow it down!
ThLs was the Carlton Ranches best event, with Dale and Matt
Carlton, Trae Adams, Millie Bolin and Jason Hanchey giving it
their all, completing it in 38.65 seconds but, alas, they were beat
out by one'second by another team.
M&N Cattle got it done in 41.26 seconds (with a fine per-
formance by Peck Harris, Matt Smith, Cody Robinson, Josh Brown
and Christy Newsome), followed by,the SMR team in 41.96 sec-
onds, Stevens Land & Cattle in 54.24 seconds, then Audubon
Ranch in 1:4.05. The JTF Performance Horses team received a no-
time when its steer crossed back over the line.
The final event, woods tying, is particular to the Manatee
County ranch rodeo, and I will say that it is enjoyable to watch.
Even the winning time was not that quick, but this was a tough
event for Hardee's teams. Four of them bunched up with close
times, with SMR in at 58.08 seconds, followed closely by Audubon
Ranch at 58.71 seconds (with a good performance put in by Jay
Belflower, Dennis Carlton Jr., Pat Thomas, Clay Banks, and female
team member Dallas Roberts), the Carlton Ranches at 59 seconds
flat, and M&N Cattle in 1:4.80 (plus a five-second penalty because
a second calf crossed the line). The JTF Performance Horses team
came in at 1:46.26, while Stevens Land & Cattle had a no-time.
And The Winners Are ...
The sorting event went to Jimmy, Jamie and Robert Fussell,
Brandon Dieter and Mandy Cantu of the JTF Performance Horses


Winning the roping and branding and the team doctoring
events taking second place overall was the Stev-
ens Land & Cattle team. Pictured (from left) are Marshall
Godsey, Charles Robert Stevens Ill, Christi Pryor, Billy
Adams and Carson Storey.


team, while Stevens Land & Cattle took top honors in both the rop-
0 ing and branding and the team doctoring events, as well as second
place overall. Congrats to Charles Robert Stevens III, Billy Adams,
Marshall Godsey, Christi Pryor and Carson Storey.
Third place was awarded to M&N Cattle, as a shared honor
with the Fat Daddy's Lil Cowpokes youth team (with our own
Dawson Cantu and Patrick Carlton). But the chief honchos for the
day were on the SMR team, featuring William Perry, Luke Cantu,
Dusty Crosby and Stevie and Lindsay John.
Congrats to all of Hardee County's cowboys and cowgirls
(both young and old).
Coming Up!
And the race is almost over! There are only three Florida
Cattlemen's Association qualifying events remaining: Hardee's,,as
you know, was last Friday and Saturday at the Cattlemen's Arena
in Wauchula.
Okeechobee's is on July 27-28 (combined with the downtown
cattle drive on Saturday for the National Day of the American
Cowboy celebration), and DeSoto's is on Aug. 3-4.
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.

Cowboys and Cowgirls!

Except for a couple of rain-
outs and possible makeup
games, the 2012 Women's
Church Softball League is near-
ly over.
The women were left with
two games on the schedule
when last w,,k ended. How-
ever, among ::' two remaining
games was a clash between the
top two teams in the league,
First Christian at 12-0 and Holy
Child Catholic at 11-1. First
Christian acutally ended with a
double-header on July 24, while
Holy Child had the challenge
game and one of the rainouts to
play.
There will be a single-elimi-'
nation tournament starting to-
day (Thursday) or next Tues-
day. Behind the co-leaders in
the standings are Wauchula
First Methodist Church, New
Hope Baptist, Florida's First
Assembly, San Alfonso's
Chapel, Zolfo Methodist and
Northside Baptist. Each team
has won at least two games.
Last week opened with a
Tuesday thriller on Field 2, with
New Hope outlasting Northside
24-23.
Kim Benavides and Steph-
anie Davidson paced New Hope
with four trips apiece around
the basepaths. Bath Radford
and Lindsey Cole chipped in
with three runs each. For
Northside, it was Rachel Coker
circling the bases all six times
she got on base. Caylah Coker
added four scores and pickup
players Donna and Sasha added
three runs apiece.
In the Field 2 closer, Holy
Child defeated San Alfonso 25-
12.

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
The newly elected board of
the annual Hardee County
Strawberry Festival met in
Bowling Green last Friday
night in a regular business ses-
sion at which time J.A.
Albritton was chosen as manag-
er of the ninth annual event to
be held in that city, home and
originator of the Strawberry
Festival. This will be
Albritton's fourth year as a
manager.

Two roaring Wauchula
Lions, B.R. Farmer and E.H.
Posey, returned on Wednesday
morning from the big Lion
International convention in
Chicago, Ill., having attended
the gathering as delegates from
the Wauchula club. The Lions
left about two weeks ago to join
the big motorcade of 48 cars at
Jacksonville where they formed
a caravan of Lions from there to
Chicago on a trip which gave
Florida great advertisement and
made her the outstanding dele-
gation at the convention.

The tenderest romance of our
time lives again on the screen
when "Seventh Heaven" the
Twentieth Century-Fox produc-
tion of Austin StroJg's immor-
tal love story, opens Sunday at
the Royal Theatre, with Simone
Simon and James Stewart in the
starring roles.

Friends and members of the
First Christian Church gathered
in the church auditorium
Monday evening, July 26th, to
welcome their new pastor and
his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Errett M.
McCleary, who have come, to
take up the leadership of that
congregation. The auditorium
was beautifully decorated with
numerous baskets and vases of
flowers attractively arranged
over the pulpit and centered
with a huge basket of blue
hydrangeas. Refreshments were
served in the vestibule by Mrs.
W.G. Smith and Mrs. E.E.
Franklin, of the Missionary
Society.


50 YEARS AGO
The Elks team of the Hardee
County Little League Associa-
tion ended the first year of
Little League-baseball competi-
tion in this county with an I1-
14 record and a first place as
league champions. The team.
sponsored by the Wauchula
BPOE, will be awarded a tro-
phy later for their standing this
season.

The temperature reached 96
two days this week and
remained as high as 93 one day
until after 5 p.m. The REA
weather station reported only
.18 of an inch of rain at their
station.

Two Zolfo Springs men,
William L. Douglas, son of Mr.
and Mrs. William F. Douglas of
Route 1, and Dwaine K.
Williams, son of Mr. and Mrs.
C.W. Williams, are undergoing.
nine weeks of basic recruit
training at the Naval Training
Center, Great Lakes, Ill.

The Wauchula Kiwanis' Club
voted Tuesday almost unani-
mously to recommend that the
county purchase the Hardee
County Fair site from the
American Legion and sponsor
operation of the fair.

25 YEARS AGO
On Nov. 3, Hardee County
voters will go to the polls in a
special election to decide
whether a one-cent local option
sales tax should be levied.

Karen Pelham was crowned
queen in the 14-18 division of
the Miss USA Pageant held at
the Woman's Club building in
Arcadia last Saturday. She also
received a trophy as Someone
Special and as winner in the tal-
ent contest. Cheryl Johnson,
first runner-up, was modeling
winner, photogenic winner, and
received a trophy as Someone
Special.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc., head-

An average f(.... o-five per-
cent raise for school personnel
was the final result as contract
negotiations concluded last
week.

109 degrees! It was 109
degrees? Where? Right here in
Central Florida. The heat index,
a measure of the temperature
plus humidity, wind speed (or
lack of it) and other factors, is
frequently higher than just the
temperature gauge will show.
Temperatures recorded at the
Range Stationn Ona were 95
degrees Wednesday and
Thursday.

Letter To The Editor

Are All Religions

Basically The Same?


Dear Editor:
Aren't all religions basically
the same?
A fable started centuries ago
that has been used to illustrate
what is thought to be a funda-
mental truth about the religions
of mankind. Several blind men
were led into a rajah's (king's)
courtyard. where they encoun-
tered an elephant.
One felt a tusk and concluded
that an elephant is like a spear.
Another touched a leg and
thought that an elephant is like
a tree. Yet another bumped into
the side of the beast and thought
that it was like a wall. And so
on.
The rajah heard the activity.
came out on his balcony, and
told the blind men that they
were each encountering only
one small part of the magnifi-
cent whole.
The lesson of the fable is that
the different religious traditions
of the world are all stumbling
upon only one particular aspect
of ultimate reality and are blind
to the total picture. But all reli-
gious hands are touching the
same essential truth.
Therefore, if we're all part of
the whole, we're all headed in
the same direction, which is an
appealing concept in the
American (United States of
America) political correctness
society.
However, the fable has an
element that has been left out of
its interpretations, and it is actu-
ally the most important issue in
the story. The blind men discov-
er their truth from someone
above.
Therefore, the real-world
question is, "where is our


Rajah who can see all and can
reveal to us the truth?" Unless
there is some word from above
to tell us that all religions are
basically the same, there is no
good reason to conclude they
are. because the evidence is
stacked heavily against it.
For example, consider three
world religions. One teaches
that ultimate reality is material
or physical and that even God
and spirits are material objects
whose constituent matter has
existed for all eternity. A second
world religion believes that ulti-


mate reality is emptiness-no
gods, no matter, no spirit, no
self. A third world religion sees
ultimate reality in God, who is
an eternal, personal, triune
Being who created all there is-
both physical and nonphysi-
cal-from nothing.
These three views of ultimate
reality have dramatic differ-
ences and, therefore, are not
part of the same whole.
Fortunately, we have heard
the King from above. All reli-
gions are not the same. He who
has ears, let him hear the voice
of the King.
DeWayne Wyatt
