Gas Facility Gets Land-Use OK


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The first step in the Fort
Green Liquid Natural Gas stor-
age and refueling facility is
past.
The Hardee County Com-
mission voted to approve the
requested Major Special Ex-
ception for the proposed facility
in northwest Hardee. County. At
question was the land use. It has
been at a land use level of
Industrial. and zoning of A-1
since at least 1996. A-I zoning
allows industrial placement
such as power plants, said
Kevin Denny, planning director.
The only approval was for the
zoning and land use and excep-
tion to height restrictions,
which included nine conditions.

voted for it. Commission Chair-
man Minor Bryant declared a
conflict of interest because fam-
ily members lease land from CF
Industries, the owner of the pro-
posed site. Commissioner Rick
Knight was absent, recovering
at home from recent injuries.
Although it wasn't necessary
to the land use/zoning decision,
representatives of Fort Green
Storage made a power point
presentation of several factors
in which residents had raised
questions.
George Matkse and Kelly
Hartman showed liquid natural


gas facilities Boston Everett in
Massachusetts, Cove Point in
Lusby, Md., Elba Island in Sa-
vannah, Ga. and Pine Needle in
Stokesdale, N. C. All are closer
to residential and recreational
areas than the proposed plant
north of Fort Green.
The proposed new facility is
most similar to the one in Pine
Needle, which has been in exis-
tence nearly 10 years, they said.
This facility would provide liq-
uid natural gas for domestic,
transportation and peak-shaving
for electric power plants. The
486-acre site is off CR 663, and


catty corner from Seminole, and
Payne Creek power plants,
which get their natural gas from
adjacent pipelines and have
storage tanks for diesel as a
backup fuel.
The site is also a little over a
mile from the Gulfstream and
Florida Gas interconnection,
which will also be connected to
the proposed liquid natural gas
site. The Vandolah power plant
is about eight miles away and
the CF Industries beneficiation
plant is about 3.5 miles south-
west of the site

assigned. A voter will need to
present his voter card and some
picture identity, such as a dri-
ver's license.
There are two constitutional
offices for which there are a
pair of Republican voters. Elec-
tion law provides that since
these races will be decided in
the Primary Election, the choice
be on all ballots. So, all ballots
will contain the Sheriff's race
between incumbent Arnold
Lanier, 58, and Tom Santarlas,
45. Similarly, the Clerk of
Courts race between Dorothy
"Dottie" Conerly, 58, and
Victoria "Vickie" Rogers, 40.
Current Clerk of Courts B.'


Hugh Bradley has announced
his retirement.
Other races on all ballots are
the non-partisan election for
School Board members. In
District 2, incumbent Mildred
Smith, 61, is challenged by
Marilyn Morris, 46, and John E.
Terrell, 73. If no receives a 50
percent plus one majority, the
two top vote-getters will go on
to the General Election in
November.
The other School Board race,
District 3, is between incum-
bent Teresa Crawford, 49, and

Sheriff's Contest



Spends Most $$$


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Just who is toting the biggest
war chest on the battlefield that
is the Primary Election'?
Arnold Lanier, incumbent
candidate for sheriff,
And who has pulled the most
money out of his chest?
Thomas Santarlas, candidate
for sheriff.
Not surprisingly, the elected
county offices which pay the
largest annual salaries boast the
heaviest war chests and the
biggest spenders.
Santarlas, who has spent
$7,519 on his campaign to
become the county's new sher-
iff, is top spender so far. Lanier
comes in second, having spent
$7,207.
Next up are the candidates for
clerk of courts, with Vickie
Rogers ahead of Dottie Conerly
in dipping into that campaign
chest.
Keeping her hands in her
pockets is Marilyn Morris of
School Board District 2, who
lists no expenditures at all. Next
would be County Commission
District l's Colon Lambert,
who has spent but $13.
These figures, however, will
change dramatically as soon as
tomorrow (Friday), when the
next Campaign Treasury Report
is due at the Supervisor of
Elections Office.


Figures listed here only rep-
resent the campaign account-
ings up to the date-of July 27,
well before the bulk of battle-
field spending takes place.
August draws out the big guns
as the final battle draws near.
Candidates, their supporters
and their war chest totals are as
follows:

Bolin Takes Florida Cattlemen's Crown

By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Brains, beauty, elegance and grace.
These four characteristics and more can be used to describe -..,.I"
18-year-old Taylor Marie Bolin.
Bolin, the daughter of Todd and Millie Bolin, graduated from
Hardee Senior High with honors, meaning she had a grade-point
average between 3.5 and 3.99. Since then, more exciting things ...
have been happening to this young lady. .
On June 20, she attended the annual convention of the Florida : .
Cattlemen's Association in Marco Island. She was there as the
Hardee County Cattleman's Sweetheart, and to compete to become .
FCA's Sweetheart.
Although appearance was judged, Bolin describes this pageant
,as more of a knowledge competition because of all the work and
many hours of studying that go into preparing for what the judges
will ask. She went up against several other well-qualified contest-
ants from across the state.
All of the girls took a written test, about 50 questions long, on
the cattle industry. From there they were personally interviewed for
about 15 minutes by three judges, and then were asked to give a
Power Point presentation that targets a specific audience. BolinL
decided to target high-school culinary arts students.
In the end, all of Bolin's hard work and studying paid off. She
was crowned the 2012 State of Florida Cattlemen's Association
Sweetheart. When asked how it felt to win, Bolin said, "I am proud
of myself for achieving this goal." .,
She will now face juggling even more tasks in her already COURTESYPHOTOS
busy life.
On July 20 and 21 Bolin appeared at the Hardee County Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam and Hardee County's own Taylor Bolin pose
Cattlemen's fourth annual Ranch Rodeo. On June 27, 28 and 29 together after he crowned her the 2012 Florida Cattlemen's Association Sweetheart at

GAS
Continued From 1A
The facility will sit in the
middle of the 486-acre site, pro-
viding proportionately less visi-
bility of the 170-foot tanks than
the tanks at the three nearby
power plants, which are all
along CR 663. There will be a
buffer of 30-foot pines along
CR 663 from the proposed new
site.
The tanks will have berms
around and between the tanks,
and be capable of holding 110
percent of the tanks's capacity.
The gas will immediately form
a vapor barrier to prevent it
leaking into the ground while it
dissipates. There are no flood
plains on the property to be
contaminated.
They are double steel tanks
with insulation between the lev-
els. Should a tank be pierced the
frozen natural gas would simply
drop into the surrounding berm
and dissipate, Matske said. The
adjacent buildings would con-
tain safeguard systems of high
level alarms, emergency shut-
down systems, and fire detec-
tion and fire fighting systems.
Dan Bartley, chief of the Polk
County Tactical Hazmat or
Special Operations team ex-
plained that ladder trucks would
not be used if there was an inci-
dent at one of the tanks at the
proposed gas storage facility.
The tallest ladder truck they
have is 100 feet, he said, "but
that doesn't matter. We would
not put a truck, an ignition
source, near the gasoline.
The procedure would be to
immediately activate the shut
off button to the fuel source to
prevent additional fuel entering
the damaged tank. The impor-

tant thing would be to keep the
retention area cool and let the
escaped compressed gas evap-
orize. Natural gas is lighter than
air and would dissipate without
a problem. A propane tank or
gasoline station would be more
volatile than one of these tanks,
he said.
The proposal would be to
construct a liquefaction fueling
station to supply motor fuels
market, hopefully by 2014 and
hopefully complete the rest of
the project later that year.
Matske explained the 11 reg-
ulatory agencies which would
have to approve the project,
including the U.S. Department
of (fossil) Energy, Federal
Energy Regulation Commis-
sion, state Department of Trans-
portation's office of pipeline
safety, Army Corps of En-
gineers and several wildlife and
environmental protection
groups.
It would, be viewed by seven
non-governmental regulators,
from military engineers to the
petroleum, concrete, testing and
materials, international gas
tanker and terminal operators
and others. There are federal
safety standards, national stan-
dards for the production, stor-
age and handling of liquid natu-
ral gas and standard for vehicu-
lar fuel systems.
Matske shoed a natural gas
retail fueling station in Clear-
water, among others which sup-
ply natural gas to homeowners as
well as for transportation.
Commissioner Grady John-
son said he had done research
on the subject and there were
nine such stations in Florida.
One resident brought up the
problems a company is having
getting such a plant at In-
diantown and it is well past the
five-year limit on exercising its
Special Exception. He ques-
tioned why this company felt it
could get all its permits within
five years. Matske said because
of his experience and those of
others on staff.
A recent prospectus from
Spectra Energy says, "Natural
gas is the cleanest foundational
fu.el. available today. It burns
cleanly, emitting half of the car-
bon dioxide of coal, 30 percent
less than fuel oil and essentially
no mercury, nitrogen oxide or
particulates."
It goes on to say, "Natural gas
is becoming even more effi-
cient. Greater efficiency in pro-
duction, delivery and usage
means fewer greenhouse gas
emissions ... It generates elec-
tricity, runs our manufacturing
plants, provides raw material
for a range of products, heats
and cools our homes and fuels
transportation. It provides low-
emission backup generation for
renewable sources like solar
and wind. ... It currently meets
about one-fourth of North
America's energy needs. ...
Current estimates point to more
than 100 years of production
capacity in the nation.

As a matter of fact, the same evening Bolin was crowned FCA
Sweetheart, her great- grandfather, Doyle Carlton Jr., received the
"Cowman" award. This award'is presented annually to recognize
the ranching accomplishments of past positive influences In the
beef industry.
Bolin is very happy and thankful for all the support her fami-
ly has given her. She says she will be able to take on all of her
duties of Sweetheart and Queen, thanks to a family always willing
to help her succeed. She is also thankful to the new contacts she has
made, for they also want to see her succeed.

sae was the flag bearer for the Okeechobee County Cattlemen
Ranch Rodeo. That Saturday she also carried the Florida state flag
on the National Day of the American Cowboy while taking part in
a cattle-drive parade through the streets of Okeechohee.

Last weekend she and her grandfather's. Doyle Carlton I111, horse,
Twist, opened and carried the colors before the DeSoto County
Cattlemen's annual rodeo. According to Millie Bolin. Taylor's
"Granddaddy is very proud that the two of them get along as well
as they do, and that Twist gets to be a part of her year representing
the industry."
One of her known future appearances will be at the FCA's
State Ranch Rodeo Finals on Sept. 28 and 29 in Kissimmee. She
will also have to appear in several other statewide functions, meet-
ings and events representing the beef industry.
Bolin hopes that with this new title she can spread knowledge
to the general public. She also wants to reach out to kids at schools
and talk to them about the nutritional benefits, of eating beef.
Something that, thanks to her new crown, she will be able to
achieve.
Becoming FCA's Sweetheart is only her latest win in her long
history of pageants.
Pageants started being a part of Bolin's life when she was just
5 years old and competed in the first Kindergarten Pageant. There
she took home the title of Miss Photogenic.
Next came the Junior Miss Pageant when she was in eighth
grade. There, she moved up by winning Miss Congeniality and
first-runner up, although it wasn't until high school that Bolin start-
ed her winning streak.
Her ninth-grade year she became Freshman Class Sweetheart.
Her senior year was a triple success, as she became 2011
Homecoming Queen, 2012 Miss Hardee County and Hardee
County Cattlemen's Sweetheart a feat that hasn't been seen in a
long time, if ever, in Hardee.
Bolin dreamed of becoming Miss Hardee County since she
was a little girl. "Growing up in Hardee County you see the pag-
eants and can't wait to be up there when you get older." she said.
Aside from winning crowns, Bolin was also winning in the
classroom. She was president of her student body. graduated with
honors and enjoyed being a part of several clubs and extracun-icu-
lar activities.
In the fall Bolin will be turning 19 and going to college at
South Florida State College. She then plans to transfer to the
University of South Florida and obtain a degree in communications
and maybe minor in public relations.
She hopes to make a career as a broadcast journalist, more
specifically a sports correspondent. as she looks up to Erin
Andrews.
Millie Bolin believes her daughter's success is thanks to the

Locally the 2012 elections are very imporlanl.
Nationally, the elections are also very important, Uip for voting
are the office of U.S. president, 34 U.S. Senate seats, all 435 seats
in the 1.I.S, House of Representatives, and 10 governors' races.
The Affordable Health ('are Act on group insurance has ali
80/20 rule. This means that companies can spend up to 20 percent
of premiums on administrative costs but must spend 80 percent on
doctors, hospitals and activities to improve health care quality such
as efforts to improve patient safety.
A case in point in 2011 Florida Blue took in $1 billion in
group insurance premiums but only spent 77.3 percent on health
care. They were required to refund the unspent 2.7 percent of the
premiums paid by the employer and employees. The rebate can be
applied to next year's premiums.
Hardee County voters on Aug. 14 will go to the polls to elect
a sheriff between incumbent Arnold Lanier and challenger Thomas
Santarlas, a clerk of circuit court between Dottie Conerly and
Vicky Rogers, a School Board District 2 member between incum-
bent Mildred Carter Smith and challengers Marilyn Browdy Morris
and former superintendent of schools John E. Terrell, and a School
Board District 3 member between incumbent Teresa Crawford and
challenger Paula Ortiz.
Republican voters have a choice between Colon Lambert and
Donald Samuels for County Commission District I and incumbent
Rick Knight and former commissioner Gordon Norris for County
Commissioner District 3. Winners will be candidates in the gener-
al election on Nov. 6.
City of Wauchula residents will fill two City Commission
seats. Incumbent Pattie Detwiler faces Val Patarini III, a former
commissioner, in District I and incumbent Ken Lambert faces
challenger Scott Lang in District 4.
The proposed Fort Green Storage LLC project in northwest
Hardee County may be a good project if environmental concerns
are met. This would involve converting and storing natural gas into
compressed natural gas and liquid natural gas. There are two major
natural gas pipelines that intersect 1.3 miles away. The nearest
home is 1.5 miles away.
Spectra Energy reports the U.S. has a 100-plus year supply of
natural gas, thanks to recent technical advances that allow natural
gas to be extracted from shale, light sands and coal seam reserves.
Natural gas is used to generate electricity, power manufactur-
ing plants, provide raw material for a range of projects, heat homes
and help fuel transportation.
Burning natural gas produces 45 percent less carbon dioxide
than coal and 30 percent lesss than fuel oil. It provides no mercu-
ry, only trace amounts of sulfur dioxide, and far less nitrogen oxide
than other fossil fuels. This could help reduce our dependence on
foreign oil.
The cleanest sources of energy are wind, solar and hydroelec-
tric. Nuclear energy results in dangerous spent radioactive fuel that
has to be stored.

No two men ever judged alike of the same thing, and it is
impossible to find two opinions exactly similar, not only
in different men but in the same men at different times.

uncomfortable with the possibility of me becoming sheriff in Hardee and investigating all of the alleged corruption! There
are two sides to every story and mine is no different. The editor of the newspaper chose to spin her story in a manner that
would support my political opponent. The timing of this article, one week prior to the election, is par for the course with
those involved. It is indicative to me and many others that our message for a positive change in Hardee County is upsetting
the current sheriff and his supporters. For them to dig up what they believe to be dirt from 18 years ago is proof that they
are running scared.
I. have had trials and tribulations in my life just like everyone else. I am no different than any of you in that regard and
certainly there are matters in my past that I wish were handled differently. However, I am not ashamed of working
hard and gaining experience through my numerous jobs in the criminal justice system. Nor am I ashamed of having an
administrative termination (not involving misconduct) from the Lady Lake Police Department or for being involved in an
internal investigation at the sheriffs office. When you stand-up to do what is right sometimes bad people knock you down.
I have fought corruption in law enforcement many a times and know the face of evil. With that said, let me set the record
straight in reference to the newspaper ad:
* In or around 2006 I bought two houses in Wauchula. One was in such poor condition that it was abandoned and being
utilized by drug users and vagrants. I spent my own money and had it demolished to protect the people of Hardee. The
second house was renovated with grant money from the City of Wauchula and my personal money. It is zoned professional
and residential.
* I own a house in Hillsborough County and never hid that fact from anyone. It is no different than the snowbirds that
come to visit Hardee in the winter. Hardee is where I chose to make my legal residence and the law does not require me
to stay there 24/7. I am entitled to travel the country freely and stay where I please just like you. There are absentee voters
from Hardee that are currently residing all around the country and still vote in the Hardee Electoral Process.
* The law does NOT require a candidate running for sheriff in Florida to be a resident of the county of his candidacy. You
must only be a resident of The State of Florida. The fact that I have invested in this community with the purchase of a
house and operate a business here should indicate my level of commitment and desire to be a part of the community.
* I am not attempting to mislead anyone as I do have approx. 19 years experience as a criminal justice practitioner. That
is not to be confused with a full 19 years experience in law enforcement as a deputy sheriff and/or police officer. I clearly
indicated such on my campaign website listing the different job tides that I had over the years.
* The testimonials on my website are direct quotes from people who have written letters of reference, e-mails of support
and/or letters of appreciation for me. I have those signed reference letters and will gladly display them upon request.
* I did not coerce the Mayor of Zolfo Springs into writing an endorsement for me. He spent a considerable amount of
time questioning me about my plan for Hardee and decided to endorse me on his own. Mr. Otero appears to have made
comments in the newspaper that seem to be a knee-jerk reaction to the newspaper article. He has also paid for an ad to
retract his endorsement. If the negative article about me wasn't public until after 2 pm on Wednesday August 1, 2012,
how did he get the information by the advertising deadline of 2 pm on Monday, July 30th? Someone apparently
threatened him into making those comments and retracting his endorsement. Gee, who would have done such a thing?
* My neighbor in Wauchula has numerous dangerous dogs in his back yard that bark constantly at night interfering with
my sleep and may have escaped to terrorize the children at the neighboring day care center. I have been vocal about this
in the past and he has apparently responded by placing THREE "Lanier for Sheriff' signs in his yard. Imagine that... a
supporter of my opponent making negative comments about me! That stuff must be true...

* I have sought jobs as the sheriff, city marshal and many other positions in the past. My applications for employment in
law enforcement have been and always will be a matter of public record. Appropriate disclosures were given then and have
been provided now. There is nothing wrong with a man applying for jobs to gain work in an effort to support his family.
I am no different than any of you in that regard.
* I have been party to two internal affairs investigations at the same time at the sheriffs office. There was no validity to those
investigations. I resigned from that agency and harshly criticized them publicly thereafter. They sustained the baseless
allegations AFTER I left the agency as a parting shot to me. That is not standard procedure and they know it. They made
it personal and then tried to yank my certification but FDLE did not agree with their unfounded accusations. I have been
hired by 2 law enforcement agencies since then. Each conducted thorough investigations into my background and
neither found any substantiation to any allegation printed last week in the Herald Advocate.
* I have never been arrested and placed into the back of a police car! Approximately 16 years ago, a detective at the sheriffs
office exceeded his authority and walked-through a bogus warrant affidavit in what I believe was a continued effort to
attack me for discrediting the sheriffs office. There was a misdemeanor warrant issued for an allegation that I made a
telephone call in defiance of a judge's order. When I found out about it, I voluntarily walked into a courtroom and
advised a judge that there was no validity to the matter. That created an arrest record due to the warrant being issued. The
charge was quickly dismissed and the record expunged and destroyed. Appropriate disclosures have been made by me
when seeking employment in law enforcement, to include this sheriffs race.
* I received an administrative.termination, not involving misconduct, from the Lady Lake Police Department. I challenged
the Police Department Major and City Manager for what I believed to be inappropriate conduct on:their behalf and lost
that battle. Several years later they and the director of human resources were all fired for cause. The Lady Lake Chief of
Police endorses me for sheriff and you will see a photo of us, him in his Lady Lake uniform and me in my Leesburg
uniform, somewhere in this week's newspaper. Why would he endorse me if I am such a bad person like the editor of
this newspaper is suggesting? He realized that I stood-up for what was right, did my job and ultimately paid the price for
challenging alleged misconduct.
* I was absolutely NOT fired from the City of Orlando as the editor claims. I resigned while in good standing at that
agency, and I am eligible for rehire per the Orlando City Council. I was NEVER party to an internal affairs investigation
at the Orlando Police Department. I have posted on my website a copy of my letter of resignation accepted and signed-off
by the chain of command, the City Council meeting minutes listing all the city employee resignations, as well as the
FDLE separation document signed and notarized under penalty of perjury by the deputy chief of police. Furthermore, I
demand an apology from the editor for putting out this blatantly false and slanderous information. Major Randy Dey
has also been spreading this lie to my supporters around the county as well, and should be admonished for his behavior.
* I am a sworn law enforcement officer with the City of Leesburg. I served as a patrol officer for approx 7 months in
2011-12 and then decided to run for Sheriff of Hardee County. I asked my Chief if I could come off of the street and
return to grant writing for the agency in order to spend more time campaigning. I could no longer work 12-hour shifts,
drive approx. 4 hours to and from work, be away from my family and run a full-time campaign at the same time. My
request was granted by the Chief and I will provide that documentation to anyone at any time.
* My certification as a police officer is valid and in good standing with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
I have never been disciplined by the FDLE and can work in law enforcement anywhere in Florida.
Arnold Lanier and the powers that be in this county recognize that I am a threat to the way they conduct business in
Hardee. I am one of the few people that have the courage to stand-up against them and fight to protect the citizens of
Hardee County. They are running scared because as sheriff they know I will uncover what has been hidden for decades.
Lanier has controlled the media and used them as a political tool in his quest for more power. This is nothing more
than a last minute mud-flinging attack designed to shock you and lure you to his camp. He can't beat me on the
issues, has no written plan to protect you andyour family and certainly hasn't displayed any indication of doing what
is best for Hardee.
You all know Arnold Lanier, the good and the bad, I chose to take the high road and not engage in personal attack ads
during this campaign. My ads were all based on his performance as the sheriff. I will not sink to his level and respond with
criticism about his personal life or go interviewing his neighbors or others in an attempt to personally discredit him at the
last minute.- I can assure you that my heart is good and that I want what is best for the people of Hardee County. That is
why I pledged to bring in a union for the deputies, have an outside agency rewrite the policies and procedures via accredita-
tion process, make the financial books open to you and provide you with quarterly town hall meetings to solve problems in
your neighborhood. Arnold Lanier has not done any of that for you!
Apparent corruption can occur in many forms. Why do you think the newspaper failed to write about the gun threat at the
junior high where the sheriffs inappropriate response potentially risked the lives of so many innocent people? Why do you
think they refused to write about the allegations facing the sheriff regarding FS 119 release of public records?
Why didn't they write about the
burglary and theft of campaign documents at my Wauchula House when I was at the Builders Association Forum? How
about many of my campaign signs being stolen around the county? All rather important information for you to know, et
they chose to do'3 pages on my work history going back 18 years and challenging my residency status! I am surprised that
Arnold Lanier and his newspaper haven't questioned the legitimacy of my birth certificate.
Folks, it is time for you to stand-up and take back your sheriffs office from this good ole' boy network. I would be happy
to speak with anyone regarding further concerns you may have, and I would appreciate that opportunity.

Dear Friends,
When I decided earlier this.year to leave my job and seek the
office of Clerk of the Circuit Court, it was after a whole lot of
prayer and even a sleepless night or two. My husband and I dis-
cussed this often, and I also had many people cheering me on.
But the final decision had to be mine, and I decided to step out in
faith. A kind pastor once told me that faith is always pre-
pared to take a risk, and if there's no risk, it's not really
faith. So I took a deep breath, dug deep, and declared my candi-
dacy.
Since then, I have enjoyed meeting new people, seeing old
friends, and being encouraged by nearly everyone on whose door
I've knocked, or who has reached out to help with the campaign.
I've learned that knocking on doors in June and July and standing
-on street corners with a sign in August is a hot undertaking, but
it has been worth it all!
We have a lot of God-given resources in this county, and we're
all indebted to the Lord for giving us a special place to live.


work. and, if we're blessed, to retire. I'll also say something
that is important: my challenger in this race believes the very
same thing! She has run her race with integrity and I appreciate
that. We often hear about mudslinging and name-calling in poli-,
tics, but we've been blessed with a race that's been about the is-
sues and our different visions for where Hardee County should
be headed.
So come next Tuesday evening, one thing is certain: this county
will be in good hands. Not because the right candidates get
elected, but because the One who holds this county and this
country in His hands will still be in control!
I hope you'll join me by stepping out in faith for Hardee

August 9, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 9A


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The school year is about to
start. It's time to clean out the
old and get organized for the
new.
Saturday from 8 a.m. until
noon is the quarterly free
household hazardous collection
day at the county landfill.
Do you get your youngsters
or teens a new computer, stereo,
or hand-held device. Collect the
old electronics and take them
out to the landfill on Saturday
where they can be disposed of
properly instead of leaking
chemicals in bad places.
Just follow East Main street
about two miles from town, turn
north on Airport Road and fol-
low until the pavement ends at
the entrance to the Hardee
County Sanitary Landfill, 685
Airport Road. Follow directions
to the Haz-Mat collection cen-
ter to the left of the main
entrance.
While you're at it, look under
the sinks or in the storeroom for
old cleansers and household


chemicals of all kinds. They
could be used spray cans or
aerosols, boxes or bottle, any-
thing that has chemicals in
them. Look in the bedroom or
bath for old facial cleansers,
hair spray, fingernail polish and
such.
Check in the garage or car-
port for herbicides, pesticides
or insecticides that are outdated
or no longer used. Don't put
them in with your regular
garbage or dump them on llthe
ground.
Have you remembered to col-
lect your used Iluorescent light
bulbs? Are there any old paint
cans, turpentine, wood stains or
preservatives that you need to
get rid of. Do you have pool or
photography chemicals, glues
or other hobby materials no
longer useable?
Dads, are there batteries, old
transmission fluids, or any
petroleum products you should
safely part with?
While you're at it, gather
plastic bottles, newspaper, cor-
rugated cardboard, aluminum,


metal and glass for recycling.
There's a place at the landfill
for them, too.
If you don't have enough to
fill your trunk or pickup truck,


stop by your elderly neighbors'
homes and get some of theirs.
Households can each dispose
of up to 60 pounds of hazardous
waste free. The only things you
can't bring are gas cylinders,
ammunition or explosives, or


radioactive, biohazardous or
infectious waste. There are
proper ways to dispose of them.
Businesses that generate less
than 220 pounds of hazardous
waste per month are allowed to
bring them to the landfill col-


election site Saturday, but will
have to pay current contract
prices for disposal.
For more information on
what is acceptable or not wel-
come, call the landfill -at 773-
5089.

The Current Sheriff's Job Performance

I am not suggesting that the sheriff is a bad guy on a personal level. However, I do question his ability, based on his past
performances, to provide you with the level of law enforcement service that you deserve. There is a pattern of inadequacy
that if left to continue, will only lead to a continued abuse of our tax-payer monies as well as an increased risk to our
public safety. Consider the following before casting your vote:
The sheriff has a 7.3 MILLION DOLLAR ANNUAL BUDGET and yet he has only allocated enough money to
provide the entire county with 4-5 DEPUTIES PER NIGHT!
The sheriff refuses to release a "Line-item" budget for us to inspect. Thus there is no transparency or accountability with
the finances at the sheriff's office.
The DRUG PROBLEM IN HARDEE COUNTY continues to be problematic. The sheriff has lived here all of his life
and has worked for the sheriffs office for approximately 33 years. It would be safe to say that he knows or should kno
where every drug house is located in the county and the identity of many if not all of the drug dealers. Why then do we
continue to have such a problem?
Between all the components of the sheriffs office, there is approximately a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS
of monies entitled, "Capital" or "OTHER OBLIGATIONS." The sheriff will not provide an explanation as to
these expenditures. What are these "Other Obligations?"
There is an INSUFFICIENT SCHOOL RESOURCE OFFICER (SRO) PROGRAM at our school campuses. The
sheriff tells us that his 3 deputies are properly certified, when in fact a public records request indicated that only one
deputy had the required minimum mandatory certification.
The CRIME RATE HAS INCREASED considerable in a majority of categories under the command of your current
sheriff. Search the FDLE website "http://www.fdle.state.fl.us" & see for yourself!
TRAFFIC FATALITIES have more than DOUBLED from 2006-2010 under the command of the current sheriff.
Is this because we only have 4-5 deputies working at night? Or, is it because the sheriff does not have any sort of traffic
enforcement program at the sheriffs office?
There are NO AFTER-SCHOOL YOUTH PROGRAMS providing mentorship, such as a Police Athletic League
or a Boy's and Girl's club, for our children. The lack of programs put children onto the streets during that critical
time from after school until the parents return home from work.
There is NO COMMUNITY-ORIENTED POLICING concept in Hardee County. With the exception of a
neighborhood watch program, the sheriff does not have any partnerships with the schools, churches, residents or
business leaders to assist in reducing the crime rate.
There are NO QUARTERLY TOWN HALL MEETINGS for you to speak with the sheriff and his administration to
address problems in YOUR neighborhood!
There is NO UNION PROTECTION for our deputies to ensure they are receiving appropriate compensation,
benefits, merit-based promotions and/or progressive disciplinary procedures. Thus, the Sheriff is the "Judge, Jury &
Executioner" in this matter.
There is NO OUTSIDE ACCREDITATION of the law enforcement division and county jail to ensure proper policies
and procedures are in-place. The sheriff creates the policies and procedures.
There are NO BILINGUAL 911 OPERATORS at the sheriffs office. Hardee County has a significant number of
Hispanic residents. Why doesn't the sheriff hire more bilingual people to work at his agency?
The sheriffs office has 17 ADMINISTRATORS COSTING the tax-payers $932,000 PERYEAR. Why do we need so
many administrators running the sheriffs office?
* The sheriff's office received approx. three grants last year. Why aren't we tapping into the billions of dollars of free grant
money in order to reduce the financial burden on the tax-payers?
* And here is the big one....SHERIFF LANIER HAS NO PLAN for providing law enforcement services to our
community! He didn't have one in 2008 and he doesn't have one in 2012. Maybe that is why we
have so many problems at the sheriffs office! If anybody knows of a written plan authored by the
current sheriff, please... by all means let us know where we can read about it!
I will immediately correct these problems and restore accountability and integrity to the sheriffs
office. I will make sure that you are receiving advanced law enforcement services and provide
transparency to YOUR sheriffs office. I have a written plan to protect you and your family. My
strategic plan is almost 15 pages in length and located on my website for you to read.

Doti Hasrru wA rnBoldrt V ision To Help MoveUsnFrwair'd


Dottie understands the value of being up-front and transparent.
That's what county government needs.
"' Dottie sees the role of Clerk as an opportunity to bring people to
the table and help grow our county's economy.
"Our county's single greatest export in recent years has been our kids and grandkids.
We need to start thinking in terms that bring good-paying jobs to Hardee County. It's
high-time we stop the power struggle among county leaders and start pressing forward
with bold initiatives. It's time for a leader who'll get above the fray and cast the vision,
and I'm ready to do just that. Let's start working on efforts that will help bring our
children back home to Hardee!"


SDottie knows the needs of a small business and what it
will take to secure better jobs for Hardee County's future.
SDottie doesn't let up: she's not just going to sit in an
office and look at a computer screen all day. She's going to help bring this county's
leadership together.
SDottie's got a knack for negotiation and consensus
building. She's been doing that with her management skills for years.
"More than ever, I hear people tell me they're tired of the power struggles. They want
their county's leaders to come together. I don't have an axe to grind, and I'm not trying
to clean house. I just want to offer this county something more than the status quo. In
fact, the Clerk's staff is doing a great job, and I hope they'll agree to stay on, including
my opponent. But, more than ever, we need someone who'll stand in the gap, verbalize
the problems and bring consensus. We don't always have to be unanimous, but we can
be united."



"Dottie's not running to gain a title or a promotion; she's running to
help shape Hardee County's future for the better.
-" Dottie's not going to treat this as a job that performs a function but
as a leadership role that casts a vision, unites the community, and builds consensus.
"As Clerk, I'll work with our Commission to create a seamless process. We'll get filings
processed with quick turnaround to ensure that government red tape is not standing in the
way of progress. We'll make customer service in the Clerk's office paramount. I'll have an
open-door policy, and promise to give a good accounting of the People's Business."

Thursday, August 9, 2012


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
All of the half dozen bids
came in much, much higher
than anticipated.
When bids were opened for
the proposed new storage build-
ing/offices on South Ninth
Avenue, bids came in-from dou-
ble to almost triple the available
monies for it.
The building is being paid for
from state courthouse alloca-
tions because the courthouse
space on the first floor is need-
ed to create another courtroom
for special hearings, etc. To do
that, the Clerk of Courts stor-
age room, County Probation
and Guardian Ad Litem must be
moved out.
They were to go in the pro-
posed new building. Danny
Weeks, director of facilities,
said some of the work could be
done in-house, such as paving
the parking lot and the interior
work. He suggested it may be
necessary to do the work in
stages, the storage building first
and the offices later.
As recommended, the Hardee
County Commission rejected
all bids and asked Weeks to
come back with re-engineering
for a new design.
Clerk of Courts B. Hugh
Bradley was asked if the addi-
tional storage space would be
adequate. He said plans for it
began in 1999 and "it's time
something was done." Bradley
explained that his office is
under court order to electroni-
cally file all cases, "go paper-
less. We're gravitating to
microfiche, microfilm and
paperless, so the cubic feet of
space required will not in-
crease; it could possibly
decrease."
The big problem is the old
14-inch, leather-bound books
which need to be kept for his-
torical reference. Several sug-
gested that they could better be
placed in the Pioneer Park
Museum, if it could accommo-
date them, where they would be
more accessible to people want-
ing to do research.
There would still need to be
the climate-controlled double
vaults for the proposed storage
room, as some primary, perma-
nent records by law have to be
kept in different silver or non-


silver vaults. "But the storage
space could be reduced as we
don't anticipate needing more
by going to E-filing, including
the commission minutes," said
Bradley. He urged the commis-
sion to get the project complet-
ed before another clerk spends
16 years in the planning," refer-
ring to his upcoming retirement
and the election of a new Clerk
of Courts.
Resident Nancy Craft said the
work shouldn't be done piece-
meal. "No other county has its
Property Appraiser, Tax Col-
lector and Supervisor of Elec-
tions in a different building on a
commercial property. You need
to purchase a property near this
courthouse and bring them all
together, so people don't have
to run back and forth. Be pro-
gressive, do some long-range
planning."
Commission Chairman Min-
or Bryant said the commission
was doing that with its vision-
ing process.
Craft retorted. "We've been
visioned too death. Do some
planning."
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-met as a zoning board and
approved three ordinances
which make change to the
Unified Land Development
Code.
Ordinance 2012-11 sets crite-
ria for permits for temporary
off-premises sale of motor vehi-
cles and vessels for five days or
less and specifies the hours of
operation, sanitation, space and
other requirements. "It is basi-
cally for consumer protection
and to make a level playing
field for the permanent deal-
ers," said Kevin Denny, plan-
ning director.
Ordinance 2012-12 clarifies
the minimum roof pitch for new
and used mobile homes and
manufactured units of 2.5:12.
Those already in place in the
county were required to have a
minimum 2:12 roof pitch.
Ordinance 2012-05 revises
the development review process
into two categories. The small
to medium project is made eas-
ier and less expensive for local
residents to get approval for
multiple family, non-residential
and subdivisions by making it a
minor site development plan


reviewable by the planning
office. The requirements will
still have to meet state stan-
dards.
Only major developments
will require A Major Special
Exception reviewable by the
planning & Zoning Board and
then the commission.
-approved a pair of resolu-
tions setting assessments for the
coming fiscal year. Assess-
ments are included in the ad
valorem tax bills.
Fire-Rescue assessments will
remain the same as last year,
$121.25 per dwelling unit, and
per square feet for commercial,
industrial and institutional,
$8.93 for transient (hotel,
motel, etc.) and 44 cents an acre
for vacant land.
The Solid-Waste assessments
for county residents has
changed to $176.49 per house-
hold for both collection and dis-
posal. Municipal residents pay
these costs on their utility bills.
-discussed the recently
received Energy Assessment of
county buildings, such as An-
nex I, Annex II, the health
department and Sheriff's Of-
fice/jail. The commission will
set temperature ranges for those
offices directly under its control
and will work with the constitu-
tional officers (Sheriff, Tax Col-
lector, Property Appraiser, Su-
pervisor of Elections and Clerk
of Courts) in setting theirs.
In county buildings, Danny
Weeks, director of facilities can
set temperatures in buildings
from his office, keeping the
rooms with servers cooler and
changing other rooms on week-
days and weekends. For in-
stance, at the Agri-Civic Center,
he is able to set the temperature
for an event and reset it after-
ward.
-approved an agreement for
architectural services with


Chastian Skillman for services
for the bathhouse and entry
building at Hardee Lakes Park,
the first step in getting the RV
parking lot completed.
-approved a bid award to
O'Brien's Response Manage-
ment for emergency debris
removal in case of a hurricane
or other disaster.
-approved payment of the
$127,246.21 owed to the
Agency for Health Care Ad-
ministration for back Medicaid
payments owed. Janice Wil-
liamson, director of budget and
finance, said staff specialist
Bonnie Heggie had investigated
the $578,265.61 alleged out-
standing debts from 2000 to
2008 and ruled out county resi-
dency on most of them. Some
billing from other counties
belonging to Hardee County
residents were accepted.
The final certified amount
was $149,701.41, but with a 15
percent discount, it comes even
lower to the $127,000 amount
noted above. The state Depart-
ment of Revenue has threatened
to reduce the county's half-cent
sales tax to recoup the money. A
pending lawsuit questions if
such billings exceed the statute
of limitations on demanding
such payments, but it could be
some time, if ever, before that is
settled.

HIGH-FLYING GRAD


COURTESY PHOTO
Hardee Countians sometimes see military aircraft flying overhead on their way to or
from the Avon Park Bombing Range. One of these recently was flown by Hardee
Senior High School graduate Capt. Scott Daggett, of the Class of 1999 and a 2003 grad-
uate of the U.S. Air Force Academy. Daggett and his fellow crew members, all assigned
to the 27th Special Operations Wing at Cannon AFB in Clovis, N.M., were flying out of
MacDill Air Force Base conducting live-fire exercises and coordinating with Marine
Special Forces on the ground and F-18 fighters in the air. The aircraft's flight path
passed over HHS and Daggett's parents' house, providing him with a unique perspec-
tive of home. The aircraft is an AC-130 Spooky gunship armed with 30mm guns and a
130mm mortar. Also in the aircraft's arsenal are a series of bunker-buster guided
bombs. This live-fire training was scheduled to provide the Marines and Aircrew time
to jointly review procedures prior to their actual deployment to Afghanistan, Daggett's
fourth, which occurred last month. He is the son of Dick and Debbie Daggett of
Wauchula. Write to him at: (Do not include his rank!) Scott Daggett, CJSOAD, Camp

Many young couples think
that financial planning is some-

the beginning.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Happy birthday wishes to
Faye Davis on Aug. I; my
daughter, Avie Eures, on Aug.
3; and my granddaughter, Kay-
lee Hogenauer, on Aug. 4.
Kaylee went shopping with her
dad, Mark, and wife Charlotte
on her birthday. She had re-
turned that morning from a two-
week beach vacation with her
mother and Allen and other
friends. They all had a good
time.
Ryan Chancey's baby, Mat-
thew, has been able to come
home after several weeks in the
hospital. He will be on a heart
monitor for six months, and
Ryan and the mother had to
spend a night in the hospital to
make sure they knew how to
operate it and what to look for
on little Matthew. Pray for him.
Betty Walker is one of our
prayer warriors at Fort Green
and definitely believes in it.
She was given a new antibiotic
and had a reaction to it, but it
turned out to be good! She has
not been able to hear for about
10 years without her hearing
aids, and now she can! She con-
siders it a miracle straight from
the Lord and we are all praising
Him and are so happy for her.
Buck Toole celebrated a
birthday July 23 but we had a
surprise for him during our ice
cream social at Fort Green last
Sunday night. Nancy McQuaig
had made him a birthday cake
and we all sang the traditional
song. Jamie Harrison was the
winner of the best ice cream,
and won the gold scoop along
with a $15 gift certificate to the


ice cream store; Kaiscy Powell
won second place and a $10
certificate to Mcl)onald's; and
Amy Duke was third with a cer-
tificate to W\endy's for $5.
Everyone made delicious ice
cream.,
For entertainneint while we
enjoyed eating were Lee
Chancey, David Spencer and
Byron Allison on the guitars.
Tom Lynn recited a poem and
then Edith Bassett sang "Coal
Miner's Daughter" and did a
terrific job. The men sang quite
a few songs as they played.
During our fifth-night sing,
Brianna Waters did a super job
on her solo and had great stage
presence. She is very talented.
A big oak tree blew over at
the Methodist Cemetery. Quite
often people park at the ceme-
tery to eat lunch or just rest. The
day after the tree hit the ground,
someone threw .what appeared
to be a sardine can and a chip
bag in the hole left by the roots.
We don't appreciate this. There
is a burn pile if you can't take
your trash with you.
Junior Abbott used to have
garbage cans near the wooden
bridge on Hendry Road because
people would leave their trash.
Everyone should practice keep-
ing America Beautiful, and
especially Fort Green!
Ada Ayers worked at Hardee
Memorial back in the '70s
when I did, and I went to her
retirement party last Wednes-
day. She finally retired after 40
years. A person led in prayer for
the refreshments and for Ada's
life and really did great. I was
standing by Linda Adler, and


Men's League Ends In Tie


when I comimentcd to her sheik
said he was their ClO. It im
pressed me that lie was such a;
caring person.
Recently there was an obitiu-
ary in the paper about the death
of a Mr. Ayers, survived by Pami
Ayers. Pam worked at the hos-
pital when I did and also lived
in Fort Green. She had lots of
brothers and sisters and I be-
lieve their last name was Her-
ron. It is a shame we don't
know about items like this until
it is over.
If any of Edna Beth Steph-
ens' family is still around, they
have my sincere sympathy. I
worked with her at M&O Fruit
Co. That was the first job I had
in Wauchula and was in 1964!
People all need to be alert for
e-mail scams. I actually had one
from a cousin needing money,
wallet stolen, wire money, etc.
When I called him the ne\l
morning someone had stolen
his e-mail address and was
sending to his contacts. Sorta'
scary what can happen to some
people!
Margie Albritton called Sher-
man last week as her husband
thought he had seen a python in
Ms. Mildred's grove. Watch
your animals and small chil-
dren.
Pray for each other.


Until you value you, self,
you won't value your time.
Until you value your time,
you will not do anything
with it.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The season ended last
Thursday.
Or, maybe it didn't, as there
was one night of rainouts which
could become makeup games
helore starting the post-season
tournament.
After last week's games,
there was a tie between the
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tive (PRECo) Legion of Doom
and Gilliard Fill Dirt's Dirty
Dozen. Each ended the season
with an 11-2 record. If the rain-
outs were made up, Gilliard had
to face Mosaic II, while
PRECO squared off with
TNT/Nemesis.
Gilliard has the Mosiac I
Regulators to thank for ending
up in a tie. The Regulators
upended PRECo 21-20 to drop
the Legion of Doom into a tie
with the Dirty Dozen. Mosaic 2
is in third place with a 9-4
record, while Mosaic I is at 8-5.
Following along are Phos-
Chem, TNT/Nemesis, III
Ranches and the CF Youngins'
In action last Tuesday on
Field 3, PRECo won 21-11 over
Mosaic 2.
Brian Alexy and Matt paced
PRECo with four scores apiece.
Billy Alexy chipped in with
three scores. For Mosaic 2,
Ches Graham, Tator, Mark and
Cody Rawls each put up double
scores.
In the Tuesday late game on
Field 3, Mosaic 1 swept past III
Ranches 22-7.


Michael Carte topped Mosaic
I with four trips to home plate.
Lewis Martin tripled and home-
red among his three trips to
home plate. III Ranches benefit-
ed from third-inning tallies by
Fred Hodges and Mike, and five
runs in the fifth inning, by
Willie, Justin Painter, Bubby,
Mike and Keith Revell.
Meanwhile, on Field 4, the
6:45 game was a 26-18 win for
TNT over CF.
Travis McClenithan, Sam
Rivera and Willie Gilliard were
all four-score batters for TNT.
Miguel Santoya, Jose Gomez
and Geraldo Villegas all added
three runs. Charlie Flesher was
the only triple-tally batter for
CF. Tylar, Jeremy, Brett, Matt
and Josh each added a pair of
scores.
In the Field 4 game at 8:15,
Gilliard won 26-14 over Phos-
Chem.
Mario Tamayo was the only
five-score batter for Gilliard,
collecting seven RBIs on a
homer, three doubles and a sin-
gle. Brent Gilliard and Robby
Abbott chipped in with four
runs apiece. Greg led Phos-
Chem with four trips to home
plate and Ruben Rivas checked
in with triple tallies.
On Field 4 last Thursday, the
early game was the thriller of
the week, with Mosaic I nipping
PRECo 21-20.
Mosaic picked up nine runs
in the sixth inning to tie the
game and Austin Helms scored

How Kids Can Help Kids -

And Have A Great Time


When life gives you lemons,
they say, you should make
lemonade. Now, a growing
number of families have found
that when life gives you lemon-
ade, you can make it into a
source of delight for children
around the world.
The Way it Works
As part of a program aptly
named "Make a Stand," a
youngster sets up a lemonade
stand. Proceeds from the stands
are sent to the Toy Industry
Foundation and used to distrib-
ute toys and make play possible
for children in crisis or other
stressful situations.
' The Benefits
The program empowers
young entrepreneurs to make a
difference and learn about the
importance of charity and giv-
ing back to the community and
those who are less fortunate.
And it provides a fun and
engaging way for children,
communities and companies to
help give the gift of toys and
play to children in need.
The Possibilities
In addition to lemonade,
some stands also sell iced tea,
brownies, cookies, apple cider
and hot chocolate, depending
on the weather. Some young

The Chance to Share
The fun doesn't have to end
once a kid closes the stand.
Young people can submit their
"Make a Stand for Kids" stories
to the Foundation to inspire oth-
ers to make a difference. Stories
can be about unique customers,
creative recipes and interesting
ways to draw traffic to the
stand. All stories can be sent to
makeastandforkids@toyindus-

Supported by toy companies
that donate new toys and by
companies and individuals who
provide monetary donations,
the Foundation then donates to
children's charities. Toys are
distributed to national partners
serving military families and
foster children, as well as to
groups dealing with under-
served, at-risk and homeless
children throughout the U.S.

Visio ,ing Plan About To Wrap Up


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
It's remarkably similar to the
2004-05 long-range plan.
A 75-page draft of the recent-
ly completed Suistainable Har-
dee visioning report is undergo-
ing final changes before presen-
tation to the Hardee County
Commission and citizens.
The visioning began with
roughly 150 in the kickoff
meeting at the Agri-Civic
Center in the spring of 2011, at
which time a visioning or steer-
ing committee was appointed.
On that committee were chair-
man Joe Albritton, vice chair-
man Vanessa Hernandez,
Michael Kelly, Graylin Russell
Smith, Kenny Miller, Jake
Crews, Donnie Canary, Thomas
Trevino, Tim Wells, Nicole
Drake and Mark White.
The visioning process was to
include meetings of five focus
or subgroups, with each resi-
dent attending the one or ones
in which they had the most
interest. The subgroups were
economic development; land
use, environment and recre-
ation; education and workforce
issues; infrastructure; and qual-
ity of life/housing.
In all, there were to be 34
focus group meetings. As the
audience participation dwin-
dled, the steering committee
suggested an alternate meeting
at the high school. Kimley-
Horn, the visioning consultant
firm, and county staff spent a
day at the high school inter-
viewing faculty and students.
Basically, the draft plan came
up with a similar conclusion
from the plan of a half dozen
years ago. People want to main-


tain the rural. small town char-
acter and quality and balance it
with urbanized services and job
creation.
People want: a range of hous-
ing choices; core industries
which support agriculture; pro-
tection of natural resources bal-
anced with additional economic
opportunities; transportation
and other public services;
excellence in education, med-
ical care, employment and
recreation; and diversification
of the economic base.
It is suggested that the public
continue to be involved and
review and assess the plan year-
ly to discover funding mecha-
nisms and priorities.
The county is described as
rural with urbanized centers in
Wauchula, Bowling Green and
Zolfo Spring and historical
hamlets such as Fort Green,
Ona and others. Fifty percent of
the people earn less than



^p,1


$50,000. The median income is
$37,466. compared to the state
median income of $47,661.
The county had begun a sim-
ilar master plan in early 2004,
which was interrupted by the
series of devastating hurricanes.
The plan then changed more to
meeting the immediate needs of
county residents, assisted by
state and federal emergency
management funds for storm
cleanup.
There were 1,.400 homes and
mobile homes severely dam-
aged or ruined among the 5,000
that sustained damage. Some
historic buildings, the old
MacDonald and Olliff build-
ing, Hills Midway, the old
Chrysler Building, the Perry
Taylor buildings east of Wau-
chula State Bank, the Nick-
erson-Ullrich building at Pio-
neer Park and others were
beyond repair. A temporary
mobile home village was set up

R"lchai
"DIck


on Will Duke Road and re-
mained for more than two
years. Many roads were inac-
cessible for weeks. The football
stadium was moved off its base.
Residents were without elec-
tricity for several weeks.
The Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
sponsored a Long-Term Re-
covery Plan, which included 10
top priorities, restoration of the
Cattlemen's Arena, water and
wastewater, housing recovery,
and the other same goals as the
current plan proposes for eco-
nomic development, public
service for water/sewer/trans-
portation and the like.
Goals are similar. Will the
reaction of residents be differ-
ent? Will they be more involved
without the emergency status of
five or six years ago?

Act Now For Tax Savings Later


The average American must
work 107 days to earn enough
to pay federal, state and local
taxes in 2012. Although nearly
30 percent of our wages go to
taxes, many Americans do little
in the way of tax planning.
Tax planning involves re-
viewing tax benefits and impli-
cations of your income, expen-
ditures, investments and retire-
ment plans. How can you max-
imize the benefits of each in the
most tax-efficient way?
Planning may also include
taking a close look at your
income tax return.
"It's never too late for tax
planning," said TaxACT
spokesperson Jessi Dolmage.
"There are things you can do
anytime of year to maximize
your tax savings. But the earlier
you start, the better."
Dolmage shares several ideas
for your tax planning checklist
this year and every year:
Review your retirement
plan. Can you contribute more
in order to decrease your tax-
able income? If you don't have
a retirement plan, consider
starting a 401(k) or IRA. If you
want to start an IRA, remember
the tax differences between tra-
ditional and Roth IRAs. Avoid
early withdrawals, which often
involve additional taxes.
Did you claim the standard
deduction last year but have
significant expenses for med-
ical care, mortgage interest,
state and local taxes, unreim-
bursed employee expenses, or
charitable contributions? Re-
view which expenses qualify in
IRS Publication 17 at
www.irs.gov and consider pay-
ing an additional mortgage pay-
ment or medical expenses
before .December 31, 2012.
That extra payment could make
it more advantageous to itemize
deductions. Keep receipts and
detailed documentation for all
deductions throughout the year.
Check tax return filing sta-
tus options. You may qualify for
more than one status, especially
if you have qualified depend-
ents. Changing your status may
increase your standard deduc-
tion. IRS Publication 17 in-'
cludes filing status and depend-
ent criteria.
Check your federal with-
holding; especially if you've
married, had children, bought a


home, earned investment
income or made capital gains
profit in 2012. Conventional
wisdom says withhold just
enough tax to meet your tax lia-
bility. Although withholding
too much means a refund,
you're also giving Uncle Sam
an interest-free loan. Withhold
too little and you'll owe taxes
plus possible penalties and
interest. You can change with-
holding anytime of year by sub-
mitting a revised Form W-4 to
your employer. TaxACT Free
Federal Edition offers a free
withholding calculator and
helps complete new W-4s at
www.taxact.com.
Paying tuition? The
American Opportunity Tax
Credit is scheduled to expire
after 2012, so take advantage
now. If you'll be short of the
$2,500 maximum credit amount
by December 31, consider pay-
ing some of your 2013 spring
tuition before year's end to
make up the difference. Details
about all education tax breaks,
including the expanded student
loan interest deduction, can be
found at www.taxact.com/col-
lege-tax-whiz and in IRS
Publication 970.
If your will includes prop-
erty, update the financial and
family information and evaluate
how scheduled tax changes will
impact the value. The federal
estate tax exemption for 2012 is
$5.12 million, taxed at 35 per-
cent. After 2012, the exemption
will drop to $1 million, taxed at
55 percent.
Dolmage warns taxpayers to
be prepared for last-minute tax
law changes. "Seventy-seven
tax breaks expired at the end of
2011," said Dolmage. "Con-
gress will likely extend many of
them after the presidential elec-
tion, but we're not sure when.
Regardless of when legislation
passes, tax solutions like
TaxACT will update their pro-
grams right away. You can get a
head start and estimate your
2012 federal and state taxes free
starting in October at
taxact.com."

tion, visit www.irs.gov and

free tax help at taxact.com.

mum refund and accuracy.

Santarlas Endorsements For


Hardee Sheriff

These people trust and support Thomas Santarlas to be the next Sheriff of Hardee County.

Hardee County Fire Rescue Union

Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff
"IAFF LOCAL 3471 Proudly endorses Mr.Santarlas for Hardee County Sheriff. We believe his commitment to improving
public safety is second to none. Mr.Santarlas also is a advocate for the Fire Department, wanting to implement a
training program so that Law Enforcement and Fire Rescue can work better together to further improve Emergency
Services rendered to you, the tax payer." August 5, 2012


& Florida Police Benevolent Association, Inc.

\ Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff

S"The Voice of Florida's Law Enforcement Officers"
"The Southwest Florida Chapter of the Florida Police Benevolent Association, Inc. is proud to inform you of our
endorsement of your candidacy for sheriff of Hardee County. Our endorsement carries with it our permission for you to
use the association's name if you wish. We will ask the members, their friends and families, and all the citizens in the area
who respect the strong and efficient enforcement of our laws, to cast their ballots in support ofTHOMAS SANTARLAS."


Captain Schnable (Retired) Hardee Sheriffs Office

Endorses -Santarlas for Sheriff
"I have known Thomas Santarlas for several years and he is a very educated, dedicated, professional law enforcement
officer, who still works the streets and deals with current law enforcement issues on a daily basis. He is well versed in
his vast experience, education and training. He has not lost touch with the current issues that face society today and is
proactive in learning new techniques to combat crime.
I worked for Hardee County Sheriffs Office for 19 years, retiring in 2008, but returning to law enforcement a year later.
The highest rank I held was Captain, in the Detention Division for a couple years, but the majority of my career was in
the law enforcement division. Over the past 20 years the current administration has stayed the same by promoting those
within that maintain the same old philosophies.
The reactivet" approach to law enforcement is dead and proven ineffective. The new, proven approach is the intelligence
based "proactive" approach to crime. Hardee County Sheriffs Office has not had a significant change in the ideals,
attitudes, or goals towards an ever changing law enforcement profession in all that time.
Working for a more progressive, proactive agency I can say that Hardee County deserves a new approach in law enforcement.
Hardee County needs fresh ideas, new attitudes to combat current issues, proactive goals, and an administration that is
not so immersed in the "good ole boy" system, to better serve the community; basically a new philosophy towards law
enforcement.
The time has come to bring in a new administration and have a fresh approach to the challenges that face a small town
community and a small agency with a limited budget and resources. Vote for a change, vote for Thomas Santarlas!"

7 IPro Boxer & Wauchula Resident


SEdner Cherry

Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff
"I Edner Cherry endorsing Thomas Santarlas who is running for sheriff of Hardee County. I known Thomas Santarlas
for some time. We looking for changes in this community and Mr. Santarlas is the man to do that as Sheriff of Hardee
County changes is always good. Mr Santarlas just don't want to be a sheriff of this county just to sit behind his desk but
go out to help people even our kids in this community who trying to find fun thing to do. Thomas will be that friend,
the brother, even he see us as family that's why we think he will make the difference here for us."


:Lady Lake Police Chief

Ed Nathanson

Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff

"I have known Tom Santarlas for more than ten years. During that time, I have known him to be a devoted family man
first and foremost. Tom is a man of integrity who has the ability and the desire to dare to make a positive difference in
the lives of others.
Tom is a professional law enforcement officer and he is just looking for the opportunity to prove his commitment to a
community that he cares about. Tom is well educated in his chosen profession and he is a man of principal with high
moral standards and integrity.
Tom will always do the right thing, at the right time, in the right way, for the right reason, even if it means doing the
harder right thing, then doing the easier wrong thing. Tom is a stand up guy who will be there when you need him!"


Former Zolfo Springs Police Chief

Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff


rlas "Dr. Santarlas has the required skills of a successful law enforcement administrator. He takes
51 L Sh rill -mw- community-oriented policing seriously and will quickly earn the trust of the community. I
personally know Thomas Santarlas 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.
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!"


AFL/CIO Endorses Santarlas for Sheriff

Billions of dollars in mining
assets belonging to companies
like Alcoa, BHP Billiton, Rio
Tinto, American oil company
Hyperdynamics Corporation
and their shareholders could be
handed off to middlemen
thanks to a secret deal struck by
the government of Guinea.
Not long after the Obama
administration lifted sanctions
against Guinea, a new mining
code was passed that gives 15
percent of every mine in Guinea
to the state mining company
free of charge, including anoth-
er 20 percent at market rates..
This law will cost billions of
dollars in current assets to U.S.
and European free-market busi-
nesses and their shareholders.
The agreement, which may
be in violation of the Foreign
Corrupt Practices Act and the
Dodd-Frank Act, has taken
place between Guinea and a
well-known businessman
known for trading diamonds in
Angola and the Democratic
Republic of the Congo named
Walter Hennig, who is based
out of South Africa. The deal
could prove an embarrassing
election year misstep for the
Obama administration, which
restored the country to privi-
leged trade partner status last
October. The deal, which puts
billions of dollars of U.S.
investments at risk, was made
between Mvelaphanda Hold-
ings, whose founder is listed in
the United Nations report on
illegal transactions under the
Oil-for-Food Program, and the
U.S.-based firm Och-Ziff. Och-
Ziffs billionaire CEO has given
hundreds of thousands of dol-
lars to U.S. politicians and
PACs and continues to provide
support for candidates in the
upcoming elections.
Widely documented media
reports published recently show
that last April, five months
before the code became law,
Mohamed Lamine Fofana, the
mining minister, agreed to a
$25m loan with Palladino
Capital, an investment vehicle
registered in the British Virgin
Islands. The deal was signed by
Fofana, Kerfalla Yansane, the
finance minister, and Samuel
Mebiane, listed as "proxy hold-
er" for Palladino. Hennig set up
Palladino Holdings in 2003 as a
vehicle for "mining, energy and
other assets in Africa." The
company is close partners with
U.S. investment company Och-


Ziff.
As reported in London's
Sunday Times recently, the
terms of the loan are rumored to
include a provision that if the
cash-strapped government de-
faults, Palladino can convert the
debt into a 30 percent stake in
the operations of the national
mining company. This would
potentially be worth billions.
Simandou alone-owned by Rio
Tinto, China's state giant
Chinalco, resources tycoon
Beny Steinmetz and Vale, a
Brazilian iron ore group-is
worth at least $10 billion.
The Palladino agreement was
signed less than a month after
Hennig signed a memorandum
of understanding under which
another vehicle, Floras Bell,
would become a "partner" with
the government in the mining
industry.
Guinea has the world's largest
reserve of bauxite and is home
to Simandou, a huge undevel-
oped iron ore deposit. These
resources are vital to U.S. busi-
ness and national security inter-
ests.
Some people have begun to
protest the asset seizure tactics
and the government has recent-
ly said publicly that it would
repay the money, but so far
Western governments appear,
for the most part, unconcerned
over the backroom deal.
American oil company
Hyperdynamics Corporation,
Alcoa, BHP Billiton, steel
group ArcelorMittal and Rusal,
the Russian aluminum produc-
er, all have assets in the country
affected by the new code and
each stands to lose billions.
Many individuals, some
politicians in the States and
Europe, and some entities like
the World Bank have been call-
ing on political oversight com-
'mittees and watchdog groups to
further look into the recent
Guinea laws and those
involved.
The United States may be
forced to intervene, having pre-
viously signed an investment
guarantee agreement with
Guinea that offers political risk
insurance to American investors
through the Overseas Private
Investment Corporation
(OPIC). If this occurs, then the
issue may not only gain the
attention of legal oversight, but
could very well become an
issue for both Obama and
Congress to contend with.

Letter To Editor

3PR Finds Phosphate


Study Inadequate


Dear Editor,
As you were notified, People
for Protecting Peace River
(3PR) recently submitted com-
ments to the US Army Corps of
Engineers on a 1063-page doc-
ument known as the Draft
Environmental Impact State-
ment (DAEIS). This important
study is required by the Na-
tional Environmental Policy
Act. Its purpose is to "help pub-
lic officials make decisions that
are based on understanding of
environmental consequences,
and take actions that protect,
restore, and enhance the envi-
ronment." This particular study
was meant to scientifically ana-
lyze the environmental effects
of phosphate strip mining in the
Central Florida Phosphate
District 1.35 million acres -
that includes almost the entirety
of Hardee County. The last
study of this magnitude and
importance was produced 37
yggars ago.
Ii sum 3PR found the DAEIS
"... so highly inadequate, inac-
curate, and in many instances
misleading that (it) should be
completely rejected in favor of
the development of a new, more
objective, complete, reason-
able, clear and concise docu-
merit which provides the mean-
ingful and measurable direc-
tives needed to protect west-
central Florida from the diverse
negative impacts associated
with phosphate strip mining."
Our review revealed that
despite its extraordinary length
the Army Corps of Engineers'
study did nothing to actually
achieve the NEPA purpose of
"Protection of the Environ-
ment." We found that the study
relied disproportionately on
representations, data, and ana-
lyses obtained from the phos-
phate strip mining industry
itself. The study "promotes
many positions for which there
is intense and adamant dis-
agreement among scientists and
researchers who are 'indepen-
dent' of the phosphate indus-
try." In its examination of alter-
natives the study allows "the


most significant and devastat-
ing of all aspects of phosphate
strip mining to take place: total
topographic alteration of the
landscapes of entire regions,
regional wide destruction of
aquifers, vast and extensive
alteration of recharge systems,
area-wide reconfiguration of
surface-water runoff patterns of
rivers, creeks and seepage
regimes, and area-wide changes
to the average evapotranspira-
tion rate."
The DAEIS either entirely
omits or does not adequately
and accurately address signifi-
cant environmental issues relat-
ing to the negative environmen-
tal impacts of phosphate strip
mining:
Increased radiation expo-
sure as a public health risk and
threat to plant and animal life
Region-wide destruction of
native ecosystems and vegeta-
tive communities through direct
destruction or disturbance of
the specific native soils and
geology
Large-scale destruction of
critical habitat for endangered
and threatened plants and ani-
mals
Extensive regional habitat
fragmentation involving broad
gaps between intact ecosystems
Vast infestations of cogon
grass and other invasive plants
which dominate the substrates
left after mining
Large-scale, permanent
loss of genetic diversity through
direct destruction of large tracts
of native eco-systems
Complete eventual destruc-
tion of 195 natural drainage
basins
Area-wide deforestation
and its regional or state-wide
impacts
Lack of consideration for
newly discovered species of
plants
Creation of extensive clay
waste disposal facilities as per-
manent barriers to wildlife,
their perpetual management
requirements and other eco-
nomic and environmental liabil-
ities


Injuries and deaths associ-
ated with mining-related activi-
ties
Extensive loss of economi-
cally viable agricultural lands
and destruction of Hardee
County's rural and agricultural
heritage
Large-scale impairment
and physical obstacles to west-
central Florida transportation
and future urban planning
Extensive secondary pollu-
tion via wide-scale contamina-
tion of surface waters and
aquifers with phosphate chemi-
cal fertilizers
Degradation of regional
aesthetics
Large-scale reduction of
essential wilderness lands
The inappropriateness of
allowing large-scale mitigation
in exchange for destruction of
natural ecosystems
Loss of living space, water
resources, and agricultural pro-
duction which could provide for
the support of hundreds of thou-
sands of people
Loss of future jobs and tax
bases due to loss of living space
and water resource degradation
Historic loss of the poten-
tial for jobs, growth and devel-
opment, and tax base due to
phosphate land industry and
ownership
The phosphate industry's
long history of effluent spills,
chemical spills and releases into
wetlands, waterways, soils,
groundwater, air and the gener-
al environment
Generally we found the
DAEIS was insufficient and
inappropriate in its range of
content much of which was
irrelevant, superfluous and un-
necessary. Federal law requires
these studies to be clear, con-
cise and condensed. The study
failed to adequately address the
effect of phosphate strip mining
on minority (mostly Hispanic)
and low-income populations -
44.5 % in DeSoto County and
52.4 % in Hardee. "It is certain
that wide-spread destruction of
native agriculture soils and
potential farmlands will nega-
tively impact these rural com-
munities whose residents tradi-
tionally derive their livelihoods
from local agriculture."
We objected to the excessive
length and unnecessary com-
plexity of the study as wells as
the unreasonable time period
allowed for its review. In addi-
tion to this study the Army
Corps of Engineers simultane-
ously issued notice for four
individual mine permits whose
comment periods will expire
only shortly after the final ver-
sion of the AEIS appears. These
foreshortened time schedules
can only benefit the phosphate
strip mining industry by sup-
pressing public participation
and scrutiny.
The importance of the
DAEIS for Hardee County can-


not be over-estimated, as the
future of this county for genera-
tions into thle future will be
determined by the effects of
phosphate strip mining. Unfor-
tunately, as a result of this use-
less study, which appears to
have been completely dominat-
ed by the interests of the indus-
try, the outlook is more dismal
than ever.
3PR has posted our entire 92-
page review of the DAEIS on
our website: www.protectpeac-
eriver.org. You will find a link
to a file that you can download

puter on our home page in the

Nearly 150 youngsters are
getting ready to suit up for Pop
Warner youth football.
The six teams began practices
on Aug. I but will have 10 days
of conditioning before donning
pads and more serious practice.
A full schedule is not avail-
able as it had to be redone when
the Brandon Seminoles dropped
out of District 2. Rosters for the
players are available but not yet
available for the cheerleaders.
There is some overlap of ages
in the six divisions in the
Hardee County Pop Warner
Youth Football Association
because it also enforces weight
limits. So, a heavier youngster
may move up a division and a
lighter player may actually drop-
below his age level group.
The first group is the Cub
division flag football, coached
by Jacob Rodriguez, Daniel
Lazo and Ruben Longoria.
Cassandra Rodriguez is the
team parent.
On the squad are 6-year-olds
Marco Huerta, Ruben Longoria,
Rey .Mier, Esteban Olmos,
Christopher Pace, Luke Roberts
and Jacob Rodriguez, along
with 5-year-olds Francisco
Arreola, Dade Birch, Hagen
Bryan, William Cornell, Pedro
Diaz, Cooper Graham, Seth
Grice, Aaliyah Howell, Angel
Powell, Hector Patino and
Sylvastin Rodriguez.
In the Tiny-Mite division,
coaches are Binky Graham and
Lee Block, with team parent
Michelle Graham. Their squad
includes 7-year-olds Ryan Al-
britton, Joshua Block, Desmas
Davila, Wilney Francois, Fred-
erick Graham. Hunter Graham,


Dallas Grice, Nathaniel Hall,
Darrell Ilines, Brendan I olton,
Andrew Kuen and Aiden
Thomas. The 6-year-olds are
Bronson Baughman, Judd Cole,
Landon Fuller, Dallas Howell
and Josiah Lozano, with 5-year-
olds Jeremiah Cabrera, Justin
Grimsley, Adrian Guerrero,
Alfonso Mier, Cody Reider and
Dallas Rodriguez rounding out
the squad.
Coming up next are the
Hardee Wildcats Mitey-Mite
division, coached by Mamoun
Abel, Lee Bock, Ralph Cabrera
and David Cole.
Their roster includes 9-year-
olds Caleb Block, Jake Cole,
Justin Cole, Zachary Contreras,
Joshua Garay, Blake Graham,
Jamal Holley, Andres Medina,
Hunter Rodriguez and Emery
Smith. The 8-year-olds are Ali
Abel, Simeon Bias, John Cor-
nell, Oscar DeLeon, Michael
Hines, James Lang, Andrew
Lee, Angel Medina, Alejandro
Solis and Reese Stone, with 7-
year-olds Taijaeous Blandin,
Rafael Cabrera, Braxton Holt
and Jose Ibanez.
Stepping up next are the
Junior Pee Wee team coached
by Rob Davis, Jason Clark,
Gerry Lindsey and John Rober-
son and team parent Kim Davis.
Their players are 10-year-
olds Cade Alexy, Austin Barber,
Dylan Bozeman, Aaron Bunch,
Damon Caraway, Griffin Clark,
Billy Courtright, Dylan Davis,
Jason Garcia, Quinton Lindsey,
Seth McCall, Scott Meeks,
Justin Rivera, Trenton Rob-
erson, Weston Roberts, Weston
Schraeder and Hunter Waters.
The 9-year-olds are Andrew
Arreola, Bruce Baughman,
Cameron Cantu, Kipp Cooper,


Carlos Flores, Plalmer Klein and
Cole Wilson, along with 8 -year-
old Vicente C'abarera.
The Ilardee PeeWee division
is coached by Larry Thornton.
Mamoun Abel, Lewis Kiella.
Leigh Thomas and Ryan
Thomas.
On their team are 13-year-old
William Roberts and 12-year-
olds Mason Block, Jordan Con-
treras, Ricky Cruz, Kai Shakir-
Washington, Johnny Shelton,
Quinton Stone and Quinton
Yates. The 11l-year-olds are
Joshua Albritton, Logan Al-
britton, Bryan Conrad, Brandon
Douglas, Justice Grissette,
Jeffrey Kulig, Lane Parks,
Drew Roberts, Damian Rod-
riguez, Trevor Scott and Garrett
Williams, along with 10-year-
olds Abed Abel and Dalton
Kiella and 9-year-olds Travon
Thomas and Giovanni Valdez.
The final team is the Junior
Midgets coached by Leigh
Thomas, James Carlton and
Johnny Redding. Suiting up for
this team are 13-year-olds
Cecilio Hernandez and Ismael
Rodriguez; 12-year-olds David
Badillo, David Duran, Augus-
tine Flores, Damar Harris, Noah
Herrera and Floyd Rice; I1-
year-olds Tyler Abel, Hardee
Pace, William Rodriguez,-Jose
Rojasi and Marcus Sambrano;
and 10-year-old Brandon Con-
treras.
The Jamboree is set for Aug.
20, said Pop Warner league
president Donna Parks. With
her on the Board of Directors
are Heather Lee, James Cran-
ford, Joe Pace, Bonnie Simp-
son. Leigh Thomas, Mamoun
Abel, Larry Thornton, Lee
Block and Jennifer Castillo.

After getting the last of the
rainotuts out of the way, the
2012 Women's Church Softball
League got its post-season tour-
nament going last Thursday
evening.
. New Hope Baptist split its
four rainout games, actually
two wins, a loss and a tie.
First Christian Church con-
tinued to lead the eight-team
contingent with an unbeaten 16-
0 record. Holy Child Catholic
was second with a 12-3 record.
Following along were Wau-
chula First Methodist, New
Hope, Florida's First Assembly,
Zolfo Springs Methodist, San
Alfonso's Chapel and Northside


Dear Editor,
Recently The Herald-Advo-
cate ran a story about Sheriff's
candidate Thomas Santarlas in
which my wife and son were
interviewed.
They answered all questions
truthfully but apparently Mr.
Santarlas did not like the article
so he responded by writing a
story on his campaign website.
He stated that I have numer-
ous dangerous dogs that bark
constantly at night.
If by numerous he meant two
. small dogs in chain link kennels
that are locked to prevent some-
one from stealing them, then he
is correct.
When he said dangerous he
must have meant they would
not hurt a fly because I would
not keep dangerous dogs
around my own children.


Baptist.
Each team won at least two
games during the season and
there were a pair of tie games.
The single-elimination tour-
nament began on Thursday
night on Field 2, with Holy
Child downing San Alfonso's
19-2.
Holy Child used two big
innings to secure its win. They
put up eight runs in the opening
inning and nine in the sixth,
adding solo scores in the second
and fifth innings. Elvira Servin
and Lucy Garcia each put triple
tallies in the book,, while
Brooke Tyson, Karina Fernan-
dez, Kristina Garcia, Liberty
Lozano, and Maggie Olvera
added twin scores.


As far as the barking goes,
well Mr. Santarlas is only at his
house one or two nights a week
so I really don't believe he is
losing much sleep.
He also stated that my dogs
may have, I repeat may
have, escaped and terrorized the
children at a neighboring day-
care.
I can prove that did not hap-
pen, ever.
I would expect a member of
law enforcement to have solid
facts before making false accu-
sations of such a serious nature.
He also said that he has been
vocal about this in the past.
I ask to whom?
The only time I have talked to
him was when he asked to put a
campaign sign in my yard.
If he had a problem with my
dogs he should have come and


Megan Henderson and Pang
Gilliard circled the bases in the
third inning for San Alfonso.
Isabel Abel was stranded three
times and Pang Gilliard, Joy
Gilliard and Penny Strange
were left aboard twice apiece.
In the Thursday nightcap
tournament game, Wauchula
Methodist skipped past Zolfo
Springs Methodist 23-11.
Shauntee Hines had the big
bat for First Methodist, making
five trips around the bases.
Jamie Rivas, Kim Tyson and
Gloria each added three runs.
Angel Ussery was the only
triple-tally batter for Zolfo
Methodist. Jodi Oakes and Lori
Dees added twin scores.

small town after you lose this
election.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER




A skinny boy turned out for the
first practice of a college football
team.
The coaci h handed him the ball
and said, "Let's see what you can
do,'
He tucked the ball underhis arm
and began to run down the field. A
big fellow grabbed his left leg, and
another his right let, and said,
"Make a wish."
That's when he quit.
There was a time when St. Paul
felt he was about to be torn apart.
But he didn't quit.
He said, I eagerly expect and
hope that I will in no way be
ashamed, but will have sufficient
courage so that now as always
Christ will be exalted in my body,
whether by life or by death. For to
me, to live is Christ and to die is
gain,"

Free Library Service Helps
Blind Pianist Keep On Playing


Ayaka Isono began studying
piano at agc 3 in her native
Japan. After moving to the
United States and graduating
from Indiana University, she
embarked on a successful
career as a concert pianist. But
when she was 29, she suddenly
lost Itr eyesight because of a
rare retinal disorder.
A decade later, Isono, who
lives in the San Francisco Bay
area, is still performin.g-.
including a concert in Japan this
past spring. She also gives pri-
vate piano lessons to both sight-
ed and visually impaired chil-
dren and adults.
Isono has been able to contin-
ue playing the piano thanks to
the braille music scores she


receives from the National
Library Service for the Blind
and Physically Handicapped
(NLS). "I can't imagine my
career without them." she says.
"I1 really can't."
NLS, part of the Library of
Congress, has been producing
and circulating audiobooks and
braille books for more than 80
years. It also has the world's
largest collection of braille
music scores, according to John
Hanson, head of the NLS Music
Section. "In the United States,
there is no other source for a
wide range of braille music,
whether one is considering vari-
ety of instruments, types of
music or extent of repertoire."
he says.


Stop in and see why we will not be
undersold! Selling 14 brands of
different new vehicles
is just the beginning.
