County Staff Recommends CF Denial


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Com-
mission, and the Planning &
Zoning Board listened to six
hours of testimony from CF
Industries and the Florida
Institute of Neurologic Rehab-
ilitation over the proposed
.7,514-acre CF South Pasture
extensionn last Thursday night.
CF Industries is asking the


commission to waive the quar-
ter-mile setback from mining
around neighboring property
owners, imposed in 2007 and
2008 when commissioners des-
ignated the FINR property,
German Florida Citrus and a
parcel owned by Larry Davis as
a "rural center."
The "rural center" designa-
tion came when FINR an-
nounced plans to develop its


property to add a large hospital,
hundreds of office units, restau-
rants and thousands of square
feet of commercial space.
German Florida Citrus, how-
ever, has granted CF a waiver to
mine within 50 feet of its prop-
erty line.
Kevin Denny, director of
county planning and develop-
ment, and West Palmer, county
mining coordinator, told com-


missioners county staff recom-.
mended denying the proposed
expansion as submitted by CF
because the company's applica-
'tion was not in compliance with
the imposed setbacks.
Staff does not make a recom-
mendation for or against the
setback.
If CF and FINR cannot reach
a settlement on the issue, the
commission will have to vote to


uphold, modify .or remove the
imposed setback restrictions.
The proposed extension
would have CF mining 6,417
acres while leaving 1,097 acres
:undisturbed and extracting 34
million tons of phosphate from
the property.
CF plans to mine 402 acres
per year, and will impact 1,488
acres of wetlands and leave
1,408 acres in clay settling


areas once finished.
If the setback is not waived,
CF could be prevented from
mining up to 657 acres, accord-
ing to a witness that testified for
CF.
CF has proposed building a
ditch and berm system along
the shared property line, plac-
ing plants and numerous oaks,
cedars and bamboo along the

positive for cocaine, it alleges.
He posted a $1,500 bond on
Monday afternoon to gain his
release from custody as he
awaits trial on these charges,
Hardee County Jail records
show.
Rogers, 24, of 714 LaPlaya
Dr., Wauchula, was charged
with possession of marijuana
with intent to sell, using a two-
way communications device in
the commission of a felony, and
possession of narcotics equip-
ment.
An arrest report alleges he
sold "a dime," or $10 worth, of
marijuana to a confidential
source working with the Drug
Task Force. In fact, it states,


Rogers traded a plastic bag of
the substance for a pack of
Newport cigarettes and $3.75 in
cash.
He conducted the alleged sale
within The Palms, a govern-
ment-subsidized public housing
development, which enhances
the severity of the crime.
Rogers remains behind bars
in lieu of $7,000 cash or surety
bond.
Christopher Pace, 30, of 1629
Lincoln St., Watichula,. was
charged with two counts each
of sale of cocaine and posses-
sion of narcotics equipment. An
arrest report alleges he sold $40
worth of crack cocaine to a con-
fidential source from a red plas-
tic cup concealing a plastic bag


filled with numerous pieces of
crack.
As he was awaiting sentenc-
ing on previous unrelated drug
charges when these new counts
were levied, Christopher Pace
is being held in the county jail
without bond.
White, 27, of 1203 Weston
Ct,, Wauchula, was charged
with possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana, possession
of narcotics equipment and vio-
lation of probation. An arrest
report alleges he was parked at
the site of another suspect's
arrest when detectives smelled
a strong odor of marijuana com-
ing from his vehicle.

A teenager who allegedly
spent Friday afternoon breaking
into cars in a subdivision not far
from Hardee Senior High
School was chased and caught
by alert neighbors, authorities
said.
Dustin Blake Gordon, 16, of
341 River Chase Circle, Wau-
chula, was arrested by Det.
David Drake of the Hardee
County Sheriff's Office after
two neighbors from the Knoll-
wood subdivision pursued the
boy on foot, running onto
Stenstrom Road and then. north
onto Florida Avenue.
There, sheriff's Maj. Randy
Dey said, they caught up with
the boy and stopped him, next
to a parked black pickup truck.
Gordon has been charged
with two counts each of burgla-
ry of a conveyance arid grand
theft, all felonies.
Dey said the incident began
at about 2 p.m. that day as a
woman parked in front of a res-
idence at Aspen and Magnolia
lanes spoke with a' nearby


neighbor. Suddenly, he said,"
they spotted a teenager entering
her vehicle.
One of them yelled at the boy,
and he "took off running,"
according to Drake's report. A
man in the neighborhood pur-.
sued him as another neighbors
called for her grandson to run:
after the fleeing youth.
Meanwhile, Drake described,
a wallet was discovered missing
from the parked car.

Budget Hearings Abound


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Budgets, budgets, budgets.
It's that tone of year when pub-
lic budget hearings are sched-
uled for those who want to stop
by and voice their opinions.
There's a bunch scheduled,
beginning this week, for most
governmental entities which
serve Hardee County.
Only the Hardee County
School Board is at its final
budget hearing, today (Thurs-
day). The Board has three meet-
ings scheduled today. The first
is at 5:10 p.m. and concerns the
district's facilities work pro-
gram. At'5:20, the Board will
hold its final budget hearing
and will add its regular first
meeting of the month at 5:30
p.m. That will cancel the next
usual twice monthly meeting
which had been scheduled for
Sept. 13.


All the other local entities are
on first or tentative budget hear-
ings, including the county
Indigent Health Care Board;
Board of County Commissions
or county budget; those for the
county's three municipalities,
Bowling Green, Wauchula and
Zolfo Springs; and the South-
west Florida Water Manage-
ment District.

School Budget
While the School Board's
overall budget is going down
from $61.6 million in the 2011-
12 fiscal year to a proposed
$59.1 million for the new fiscal
year which began July 1, there
will be a slight increase in
taxes.
In order to receive almost $23
million in state grant money, the
School Board had to raise its
local effort and basic discre-
tionary portions of its village


rate. The 1.34 percent millage
increase from 7.604 to 7.65, the
majority coming because of
state requirements.
It amounts about a hundredth
of a mill for basic discretionary.
and 1.34 percent for state-
required amounts. It averages
about $1.50 to $2 per resident.
Indigent Health Care
Since the revenue, collected
for indigent health care for
county.residents is capped at
$500,000 annually, that results
in a millage decrease from
.36320 mills to .36012, which
amounts to a financial differ-
ence in taxes of five to 15 cents.
SThe Indigent Board held its
first public hearing on Tuesday
at 5:30 p.m. Its final budget
hearing is set for Sept. 18, also
at 5:30 p.m. Both are in the
County Commission Chambers

The Hardee High Wildcat football team:lost 24-14 last Friday
at Fort Meade and will play at home this Friday at 7 against the
Avon Park Red Devils.

We took football trips Friday night to Fort Meade and on
S.inurday to Gainesville where the Florida Gators had to struggle to
defeat Bowling Green (Ohio) 27-14.

The weather has been dry and cooler the last few days in
Hardee County.following good rains and hot weather in late
August.

The Republicans concluded a successful convention Thursday
in Tampa, while the Democrats are having their convention in
Charlotte, N.C. this week. It is looking like a close race between
President Barack Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney.
Movie star/director Clint Eastwood endorses Romney, and for-
mer Florida Gov. Charlie Crist endorses President Obama.

Chick-fil-A President Dan Cathy, got caught. p in politics ear-
lier this summer in an interview v. ih a church jaubJcation that he-
believes in the Biblical definition of marriage being between a man
and a woman and that his company is closed on Sundays to honor
the Sabbath.
This went to mainstream media, and he and his company
caught a lot of flack from gay rights groups and a lot of support
from conservative groups.

The number of inmates in Florida state prisons in June 2011
was 102,319, dropped to 100,527 in June 2012 and is expected to
average 99,000 for the next five years, reports Lloyd Dunkelberger
of the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. In 1990 the Florida prison system
had 42,733 inmates.
SIn Florida the major crime rate is the lowest since 1984 and the
overall crime rate is the lowest since 1971, he wrote. A major rea-
son for the lower crime rates is that more criminals have been put
in prison.

Josh Lederman of the Associated Press recently wrote the, IRS
likely delivered over $5 billion in refunds to identify thieves who
filed fraudulent tax returns. The IRS detected 940,000 fraudulent
returns for 2011 claiming $6.5 billion in refunds, using Social
Security numbers for dead people, children, etc.
One address is Lansing, Mich, filed 2,137 tax returns. Three
Florida addresses (including Tampa and Miami) filed over 500
returns totalling over $1 million for each address. The IRS deposit-
ed 590 refunds into one account totalling over $900,000, reported
Lederman.

and officers arrived, Dey said.
No stolen items were found
on the youth, he added.
However, the black pickup
truck which had been parked
near the spot where the boy was
stopped soon was moved, and a
GPS system and a digital cam--
era were found on the ground
there, the major alleged.
Further, the driver of the
pickup truck called the Sheriff's
Office within minutes afterward
to report he found a wallet, in
the bed of his truck.


That wallet belonged to the
woman who was talking with :'
neighbors, Dey alleged, and the
GPS and camera from a vehicle
along Pine Court.
Dey said the boy denied
breaking into any vehicles.'
He said he was chased 'by
someone' after being yelled at
for looking into a truck mirror.
Dey noted all stolen property
was returned to its rightful own-
ers.
"It was a good conclusion,"
he .'said, crediting the alert
neighbors.

County Budget
The county's nearly $50 mil-
lion budget includes all five
constitution offices, the Sheriff,
Supervisor of Elections, Tax
SCollector, Tax Assessor and
Clerk of Courts.
The millage rate remains at
8.5540, the same as it has been.
If the county had used the roll-
back rate, or what it would take
to raise the same amount of ad
valorem income as last year,
there could have been a slight
millage decrease.
The County Commission will
hold its first public hearing next
Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 6 p.m. in
its chambers, Room 102,
Courthouse Annex I, 412 W.
Orange St., Wauchula. The final
public budget hearing is set for
Sept.. 25, also at 6 p.m.

Wauchula
Wauchula completed its
budget workshop at Tuesday's
monthly workshop. It has low-
ered millage from 5.7 mills to
5.6450, the amount to raise the
same taxes as the 2011-12 fiscal
year.
The city will hold its first
public hearing at its regular
monthly meeting next Monday,
Sept. 10, at 6 p.m. The final
budget hearing will be Monday,

be' finished mining along the
property line by 2018, and
reclamation completed by
2020.
CF said it would alter its
mining plan'to quickly mine the
areas adjacent to FINR and
speed up reclamation to limit
the impact to the facility.
Nick Katzaras, general man-
ager of the Hardee phosphate
operations for CF, said the com-
pany began mining in Hardee
County in 1978 and produced
3.5 million tons a year here.
CF transports the Hardee
County rock, its only source of
phosphate, to Plant City, where
its chemical plants turns it into
2.1 million tons of finished fer-
tilizer per year once it is mixed
with ammonia and sulfur.
The company employs 198
people at the Hardee complex
and an additional 500 full-time
jobs 'in Central Florida, includ-
ing the chemical plant and its
terminal at the Port of Tampa.
FINR owner Joe Brennick is
opposing any mining within the
setback, and said the mining
activity would be a danger to


his patients and would hurt the
tranquility and attractiveness of
his facility.
Both CF and FINR presented
expert witnesses who testified
to the effects of mining next to
a rehabilitation facility and any
potential danger or stress posed
to the clients.
Issues include.dust, noise,
light, possible flooding and
potential danger to FINR
patients if they wondered onto
the adjacent mine.
CF had several experts, from
medical doctors to geologists,
testify that mining activities
would not pose a danger to
FINR patients, neighboring
property .owners would not be
adversely affected and that min-
ing and a rehabilitation facility
can be located next to one
another without incident.
After CF presented its case
during the first half of the meet-
ing it was FINR's turn.
FINR called its own witness-
es, who generally contradicted
the CF testimony and said near-
by mining would cause stress
and potential harm to patients
and make the FINR campus less
attractive to current and poten-
.tial clients and could hurt its

ty when the economy is ready

He said letting CF encroach
on his property puts all that at
risk.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
asked why Brennick and CF
can't settle the issue between
them.
Brennick said he would
move his facility to the other
side of the county if CF paid to
construct FINR a new facility
and for moving costs.
He said many of his patients
are private payers and can move
to another facility if they are
disturbed or bothered by mining
activity.
Brennick said CF will be
through mining in 30 years and
those jobs will no longer be
there, and said his facility
would be.
"I am not against mining,"
Brennick said. "I am just
against it up against me."
On Sept. 13, the second half
of the meeting will allow
opposing sides to cross examine
witnesses and allow for rebut-
tals, which were niot allowed
during Thursday's hearing.

Economic Development
An economic development
agreement is also part of the
development order along with
the mining reclamation plan
and major special exception
being submitted by CF.
County commissioners ap-
pointed Economic Develop-
ment Director Bill Lambert to
negotiate the agreement with
CF prior to Thursday's hearing.
Lambert said an agreement
was reached in principle the day
of the hearing, but final
approval by CF's board had not
been completed and legal coun-
sels for the county and CF had
not had time.to prepare the doc-
ument.
Terms of the agreement were
not disclosed at the meeting, but
Lambert said afterward the
money would be slated for edu-
cation and recreation in Hardee
County, not economic develop-
ment like in the Mosaic agree-
ment.
The agreement will be made
public on Sept. 13 when the
meeting is continued.

FWC: Panther Range Expanding; Report Sightings


The Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission has
launched a new website that
makes it easy for citizens who
spot Florida panthers to share
the information online.
The site https://Public.MyF
WC.com/hsc/PantherSightings/
- enables the public to report
when and where they have seen
a panther or its tracks and to
upload photos of the sighting.
As recently as the 1970s, the
Florida panther was close to dis-
appearing, with as few as 20
animals -in the wild. Now there
are an estimated 100 to 160
adults and sub-adults. Sub-
adults are panthers that have left
their mother but are not yet
breeding age.


The growing population of
this endangered species and its
need to roam over large areas
mean panthers are spreading
beyond their well-documented
South Florida range. The FWC
has evidence of panther sight-
ings throughout Florida, and is
getting increased reports from
people lucky enough to have
photographed a panther or its
tracks.
"While it's encouraging to
hear from a person who is excit-
ed about seeing a Florida pan-
ther, the FWC has to have sp6-
cific documentation of the pan-
ther sighting to provide sound
science-based panther manage-
ment," said Darrell Land, FWC
panther team leader.


"We've been receiving a lot
of panther pictures from people
who use trail cameras, and this
website makes it easy for them
to share that information with
the FWC," he added.
FWC researchers will use the
Reported sightings to gain
knowledge on the range of
Florida panthers.
"The comeback of the Florida
panther is a great example of
what coordinated conservation
efforts can accomplish," Land


said. "The FWC.is asking peo-
ple to help document how pan-
thers are responding to these
conservation efforts and where
they are coexisting with
Florida's 19 million human res-
idents."
Learn more about the Florida
panther at FloridaPanther-
Net.org/. The site includes
information about panthers for
people of different interest lev-
els, including a coloring book
and activity pages for kids.

A trail camera captured these panthers passing through
in the night.


As the panther population rises, its South Florida territo-
ry must expand. Sightings are now reported throughout
Florida.

Week ending September 2, 2012
HE Weather Summary: Areas of south, Florida picked up five
S inches of rain from Tropical Storm Isaac as it passed just south of
Key West. From August 27 through September 2, rainfall ranged
from 0.34 of an inch in Clewiston to 4.94 inches in Lake Alfred.
Since January 1, the Miami International airport has recorded 68
4 inches of rain compared to a normal of 39 inches. For the first time
since June 29, 2010, Florida had no abnormally dry areas accord-
ing to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Rainfall from Tropical Storm
Isaac helped refill Lake Okeechobee to rise three-quarters of a foot
in two days. As of September 3, elevation at Lake Okeechobee was
14.24 feet compared 10.74 feet the previous year and an average of
14.30 feet during the 1965-2007 period of record. West Palm
Beach recorded the soggiest August on record with 22.28 inches of
rainfall that broke the 1995 record of 20.12 inches. Minimum tem-
peratures ranged from 67 degrees in Brooksville to 76 degrees in
Fort Lauderdale. While the maximum temperatures were 90
/ degrees in Carrabelle to 96 degrees in Bronson.

Field Crops: Hay harvest is on hold because of rain in
Gadsden County. Santa Rosa and Escambia counties had rainfall
EN for the. past two weeks and have generated some problems for
lal peanut and cotton growers. Cotton boll rot and white mold have
0.i been the most common complaints. Peanuts fields were too wet to
ia0 dig. Corn harvest was alnrost complete and seems to be a very good
EE, crop in Washington County. There is a concern of the effects of rust
NK in soybeans and disease and nutritional deficiencies in cotton and
)R peanuts. More worm pressure on crops is anticipated as they move
IE from corn fields to other hosts, especially grass hay fields. Corn has
ffl been harvested and was looking good, also peanuts were starting to
KA be harvested in Columbia County. There were a few reports of
ih- delayed planting of sugarcane and cane that had lodged due to wind
la, in Collier, Glades, and Hendry counties.
12, Fruits & Vegetables: Collier, Glades, and Hendry counties
y: growers delayed planting schedules for some vegetables. Later dur-
ing the week, vegetable growers resumed land preparation and
planting. Sweet potato (boniato) growers in Miami-Dade County
were concerned for the crop due to standing water. Nurseries and
small tropical fruit orchards in Loxahatchee and The Acreage areas
were the hardest hit by TS Isaac in Palm Beach Courity. Some
seedling vegetables may have sustained some damage in s6me
areas in St. Lucie County.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition was
mostly good, down slightly due to flooding throughout the State.
The condition of the cattle was mostly good. In the Panhandle, the
pasture condition was very poor to excellent, with most good to
excellent. Cattle have ample pasture and continue to improve in
general body condition if their calves have been weaned. In the
northern area, the pasture condition was poor to excellent, with
most in good condition. Continued precipitation after Tropical
Storms B.ryl and Debby left many forage areas in good condition.
Cattle weie in good condition. In the central area, the condition of
pasture ranged from poor to excellent, with most in good condition.
Forage growth was very good. The cattle were in very poor to
excellent condition with the vast majority in good condition. In the
southwestern area, the pasture condition was very poor to excel-
lent, with most in good condition. Extensive flooding of low lying
pastures occurred in Collier, Glades, and Hendry counties.
Considerable pasture in Okeechobee County had standing water.
Most cattle were 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 Lake
Alfred receiving the most at 4.9 inches. Eight stations received
more than three inches and another thirteen received more than an
inch. Clewiston recorded the least with 0.3 of an inch recorded.
Rainfall from TS Isaac continued to affect the citrus region during
tr- the beginning of the week. The citrus region is now entirely
It drought free, as per the U.S. Drought Monitor; last updated August
is 28, 2012. Fertilizer application, irrigation, and grove maintenance
In were the primary grove activities.

SEEDS

SOWER


Four-year-old Mary liked
the story, The Three Little
Pigs. She begged her father
to read it to her every night.
One day he taped the story
and when she asked him to
read it to her he said, "Dear,
please, turn on the tape
recorder. I made a recording
especially for you."
"But," she protested, "it
can't hug me."
When someone wraps
their arms around us we feel
safe and loved, wanted and
important.
Love has eyes to see the
misery of others, ears to hear
the cries of others, feet that
'hurry to help others, hands
that can lift the burdens of
others and a heart to feel the
pain of others.
The Bible urges, "Dear
Friends, let us practice loving
each other, for love comes
from God and those who are
loving and kind show that
they are the children of God,
and that they are getting to
know Him better."

Volleyball Girls
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The-Herald-Advocate
It may be the first time in
quite a while that the Hardee
Lady Wildcats have forced De-
Soto into an extra game.
Perhaps the premiere volley-
ball team in the area, the
DeSoto Lady Bulldogs are ac-
customed to sweeping most
varsity opponents in three
straight in the best of five
series. Under first-year head
coach Shadow Ward, the Lady
'Cats forced .the issue, with
three of the four games settled
by the minimum two-point
advantage.
The Hardee girls started the
season playing around what
turned out to be Hurricane
Isaac. The girls played in a pre-
season tournament on Saturday,
Aug. 25 in Winter Haven, beat-
ing both the host All Saints'
Academy team" and-the OasiS"
'Christian team.".'"
After school was called off
on Monday, Aug. 27, the girls
were back at it in a home match
against DeSoto on Tuesday
evening. The final scores went
in DeSoto's favor, 25-23, 26-
28, 25-13 and 25-23.
In game one, Gemi Saunders
and Emily Albritton topped the
Hardee girls with five service
points apiece. Also adding
points were Jessica Harrison,
Ana. Saldivar, Katie Wheeler
and Kendall Gough. A DeSoto
player led with. 10 service
points for her squad.
Hardee turned the tables and
picked up the two-point win in
game two as it went into over-
time before either team could
get the two-point victory. For
Hardee, Saldivar had seven
service points, including the
winning point. Also in on the
action were Harrison, Albritton,
Saunders, Karlee Henderson,
Desiree Smith, Jakaysha Lind-
sey, Bailey Carlton and Gough.
After the mighty effort,
Hardee lost momentum and
DeSoto came back strong in a
lopsided win. No Hardee player
had more than three service


Getting Tough
points. Hardee recouped in the
fourth game, pushing DeSoto to
the limit in its 25-23. win.
Saunders had a half dozen serv-
ice points, while Albritton and
Harrison had five apiece.
The next outing was last
Thursday at home against the
Lady Dragons of Lake Placid,
another tough opponent. Har-
dee won the first game before
succumbing to Lake Placid's
different strategy.
Hardee swept to a 25-16 first
game win behind the strong
service of Gough with 13 serv-
ice points. The highest Lake
Placid player was limited to
eight service points.
After the first effort, Hardee-
dropped the second game 11-
25, came close on the third 23-
25 and lost the fourth 25-19.
Wheeler led Hardee-scoring in
game two and four, while it was
Saunders high in game three.
The Hardee JV, under Coach
Melanie Henderson, also had a
slow start, losing to DeSoto 19-
25, 15-25. The team pushed
Lake Placid to the third game in
the best of three JV format,
where the third game is decided
at 15 points. Hardee lost the
first game, 16-25, came back to
win the second 25-21 and lost a
close encounter in the third
game 12-15.
Courtney Richardson topped
Hardee with a half dozen serv-
ice points in game ofie against
DeSoto. Allison Smith was tops
in game two, also with a half
dozen points.
Against Lake Placid, it was
Destiny Thompson as the leader
in game one and also in game
two. Georgeann Paris was tops
in game three. Other JV players
getting into the action are
Abigail Vargas, Brooke Dixon,
Hannah Grisinger, Senida
Garcia, Brenda Miramontes,
Josie Hancock, Caryssa John-
son and Claudia Klein.
This week's only's match was
at Avon Park on Tuesday. Next
week, it is Tuesday at home for
Sebring. Hardee had a return
match at Sebring on Sept. 20.

The Real Florida
By Dorothy Harris
State Park Ranger

PRESCRIBED BURN PLANNED
Highlands Hammock State Park in Sebring and Lake June-in-
Winter Scrub State Park in Lake Placid both protect and preserve
the real Florida. Lake June Scrub, home to globally-imperiled
plants and animals, is an amazing ecosystem of tiny plants, pecu-
liar creatures and unusual insects whose survival depends upon
good land management.
Longterm residents may remember we last used prescribed fire
in Lake June-in-Winter Scrub State Park 15: years ago. Now, it's
time to re-apply fire to the scrubby-flatwoods habitats of this park.
Fire control is just one of the benefits of prescribed burning.
This burn will lower wildfire hazards to nearby landowners by
reducing the abundance of plant material that catches fire easily.
The burn also helps to slow down re-growth over the coming years,
lessening the chance of lightning-caused wildfire. The plants and
animals of Florida scrub are adapted to a desert-like existence
which lightning-fueled fires of the past naturally burned during the
summer months.
Our semi-tropical weather pattern in central Florida is only part
of what shaped this unique natural community. The Lake Wales
Ridge stretches down the very center of the Florida peninsula, and
was formerly a series of islands long ago. As ocean levels rose and
fell, plants and animals became isolated on these sand ridges and
:remain uniquely distinct even today.
Due to anticipated favorable weather conditions, about ,100
acres, a small portion of the 845-acre park, is being prepped for a
prescribed burn. Pre-determined levels for humidity, wind speed
and more, are all part of the burn prescription. Preparations include
using tractors to create boundaries around the burn area and care-
ful review of documented plants and animals to ensure the right
timing of the burn.
This prescribed burn will be cooperatively managed by multiple
agencies to ensure the safety of our neighboring community and
completion of bur objectives. Experienced staff from the Florida
Park Service, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission,
Florida Forest Service and The Nature Conservancy will work
together.
During the prescribed bum, residents may see flames, abundant
smoke and falling ash throughout the day. We aim to reduce these
impacts as much as possible.
Prescribed fires are only conducted when weather conditions are
suitable. The final decision to bur is made daily, after reviewing
the Predicted Fire Weather forecast for that particular day and after
obtaining a burn authorization from the Florida Forest Service.
Park staff, with our partner agencies, has spent many hours plan-
ning this burn. Now we wait for the right weather patterns. Once
everything falls into place, we will work together to ensure this
imperiled habitat remains healthy for years to come.
Quick Facts:
Physical location of this burn is along Daffodil Road on the
northwest side of Lake June-in-Winter Scrub State Park within the
park boundary (Leisure Lakes subdivision area)
This burn is planned between Sept 1st and Sept 30th due to
federal regulations for nesting bald eagles.
Actual date of burn is determined by weather predictions. If
appropriate weather does not occur, burn is cancelled.
Rare scrub plants rely on open, sandy patches to grow. Fire
removes leaf litter and tree cover that shades out our rarest plant
species.
Small creatures like the-Florida mouse, Florida scrub lizard
and Indigo snake escape from fire by seeking refuge in Gopher tor-
toise burrows.

The August Friday Night Live
event, held on Aug. 17, brought
large crowds and Wildcat spirit
to Main Street in Wauchula.
The Blue Star Brigade livened
up Heritp Park with a new
drum line Ilai brought the audi-
ence to their feet. The Youth
Football League kicked off its
season at the Main Street event
by recognizing their players and
having the cheerleaders perform
their cheers. The high school
cheerleaders also contributed to
the excitement!
The Lions Club celebrated 85
years of service by partnering
with Dr. Mark Sevigny in giving
free back-to-school eye exams
for the fourth year in a row.
Of course, there also was live
music, 'courtesy of Darte, and an
array of vendors. In addition to
the student-focused events,


Main Street Wauchula added
some extra fun and excitement
with the inaugural Alumni
Games!
The Alumni Games, held on
the east side of Main Street
across U.S. 17, consisted of
seven teams, each with five
members. The teams competed
in a discus-throwing contest,
double elimination volleyball
tournament, cheer competition,
and water-gun target shooting.
The teams could also win
additional medals by having
friends, family and fans check
in at the Main Street Wauchula
tent, located on East Main
Street.
The Alumni Games were
very successful in the goal of
bringing Friday Night Live
patrons to East Main Street. For
months, Main Street Wauchula


Inc. had been trying to get peo-
ple to cross the highway to visit
the businesses that are often
overlooked at the monthly
event.
"This was by far our busiest
Friday Night Live yet," ex-
plained the manager of JP's bar-
becue restaurant. JP's has had to
rely on sales at the west side of
Main Street near Heritage Park.
"Normally we do not get this
kind of numbers at our restau-
rant."
Main Street Wauchula Inc.
plans to continue keeping
events and activities on "the
East Side," and encourages vis-
itors to take the time to trek
down Main Street. Do not miss
out on good music, food, shop-
ping and fun!


STATE OF FLORIDA

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT


The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its intent to issue
a Phosphate Management Facility permit (No. FL0035271; PA File No. FL0035271-005
IWIS/NR) for the CF Industries, Inc., Hardee Complex I, North Pasture Mine. The expected
discharge from this site will be based on excess stormwater received in the water man-
agement system. Outfall D-003 will serve as the sole discharge point and is located at the
end of the stormwater ditch. The discharge will sheet flow through the receiving floodplain
wetlands into Payne Creek and thence to the Peace River.

The Facility's mailing address is: Post Office Box 1549, Wauchula, Florida 33873-1549. The
facility is located at 6209 N. County Road 663, Wauchula in Hardee County, Florida and
geographically at:


Latitude: 27' 37' 50.89" N


Longitude: 81 "56' 51.32" W


The Intent to Issue, permit application file, and supporting data are available for public in-
spection during normal business, hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday,
except legal holidays, at the State of Florida, Department of Environmental Protection, Bu-
reau of Mining and Minerals Regulation, Phosphate Management Program Office, 13051
N. Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, FL 33637-0926. Please telephone (813) 632-7600,
extension 138 for an appointment.

The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for-petitioning for a hearing are
set forth below.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.

Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension
of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (re-
ceived by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an'administrative hearing.

Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice
or within fourteen days of receipt of the written'notice, whichever occurs first. Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the date of publication.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an ex-
tension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections t20.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by an-
other party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code.

A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative
Code:

(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name,,
address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which
shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding;
and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected
,by the determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's
decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts
the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's
proposed action;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require re
versal or modification of the Department's proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's
proposed action.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to
the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue me-
diation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agree-
ment with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agree-
ment must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within
ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will
not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does. not result in a settlement.

As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to me-
diate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the
agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department
must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to
protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision
must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice
will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes. 9:6c

Critical Care & Veterinary
Specialist of Sarasota donated
the masks to the local fire

According to the U.S. Fire
Administration, about 3,500
Americans die each year in
house fires and 18,300 more are

of pets that die is not tallied as
an official statistic, it is estimat-
ed 40,000 to 150,000 pets die
each year in fires, most suc-
cumbing to smoke inhalatic
These oxygen masks, w..l

a:. U'-


allow firefighters to give poten-
tially life-saving assistance to
family pets until an emergency
veterinary clinic can be
reached.
The masks work similar to
the ones used for humans, but
these are cone shaped to fit bet-
ter around the animal's nose
and mouth. They come in a set
of three small, medium and
large so neatly all pets can
receive treatment if needed.
The oxygen masks were not
something Hardee County Fire-
Rescue would have been able to
include in its budget.

Veterinary Specialist of Sara-


sota, was founded by veterinary
neurologist and neurosurgeon
Dr. Anne Chauvet in 2010. It
provides emergency intensive
care, neurology and other spe-

The second annual Reading Rumble was held June 4th in the Hardee Senior High
School media center. This activity was sponsored by Barnes and Noble bookstores
with members of the bookstore staff serving as judges for the event. The Reading
Rumble was designed to promote a love of reading among high school students. It
encouraged students to read a wide variety of books and remember information about
the plots, characters, and settings of the books. The 15 books included in the Reading
Rumble were a collection from the Florida Teen Reads Books for 2011-2012. A grant
was acquired through MOSAIC which provided copies o all 15 books for students. The
six college prep reading classes participated in the competition. Students were asked
questions based on the information in the books. Points were earned for the different
teams when the questions were answered correctly. The winning team was represent-
ed by Mrs. Mary Sue Maddox's class (top photo) and each of the team members won
a NOOK. Mrs. Vickie Conerly's class (below photo) came in a close second. Brandon's
Barnes and Noble Bookstore also provided gift bags for each participating team mem-
ber. Hardee Senior High School plans to continue this annual event and welcomes the
public to attend and support our students.

Five Hardee football players
have gone on to play at the col-
leges of their choice.
Perhaps the most success so
far has come to Ezayi
Youyoute, a sophomore quar-
terback at Georgia Southern
University in Statesboro, Ga.,
who led the Division I Eagles
on a 58-0 rout of Jacksonville
University .
The 2011 Hardee grad had his
first start at Paulson Stadium
and had a career-high 164 yards
and three touchdowns. The
Eagles collected 557-yards of
offense under Youyoute's direc-
tion, and led 27-0 at the end of
the first quarter. Youyoute
broke loose for a 79-yard TD
run in the second play of the
same. and scored on the team's


'layers Get In Action

another former Wildcat is on
the Georgia Southern squad.
No. 61, Wintz Terrell, is listed

High. In his first start as a Georgia Southern Eagle quarterback, he broke loose on the
second play of the game for a 79-yard TD, one of three he scored in a 58-0 victory.


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
Charles Saar, Jr., son of Mr.
and Mrs. Charles Saar, Sr., for-
mer residents of Wauchula but
now living in Plant City, has
achieved high rank in Boy
Scouts of America. The follow-
ing appeared in the Plant City:
Courier last week:.

The only spoon of its kind
ever designed, thought to the
world's largest, was presented
recently on his 47th birthday to
Earl W. Brown, general manag-
er of Florida Exhibits, my mem-
bers of the Florida personnel at
the 1937 Great Lakes
Exposition.

The S. O. S. Sorority enter-
tained with a house party at
Anna Maria Beach during the
holidays. Those attending were
Misses Sally Bondy, Ethel May
Neal, Dot Head, Viola Barlow,
Evelyn Blanton, Sally Smith
and Eleanor Glorius.

Coral-Frank Paskewich, of
Wauchula, is one of the out-
standing sophomore candidates
for end of t he 1937 University
of Miami football team.
Although the Hurricanes have
two lettermen returning for
wing duty along with another
couple of lands who had some
experience there, the coaches
are hopeful of uncovering
sophomore material which will
give them at least one regular
and two reserves for the heavy
schedule ahead.

50 YEARS AGO
The designation of the
Crewsville Road as Highway
98 or Alternate 98 has been for-


mally requested by the Board of:
County Commissioners.

The weather man, who for so
long was sending the showers
elsewhere this summer, contin-
ued this week to try to make up
for his neglect of Hardee
County. Rainfall was plentiful
with the REA reporting an offi-
cial reading of 4.12 inches for.
the week and some sections get-
ting five inches or more.

Not long ago it was bees, now
it's Snakes. Of course rattlers
have always been pretty much
the same: dangerous, but never
insisting on living so close by.

The Hardee-County Wildcats
may not produce any Al Darks
or Doak Walkers, but one thing
for certain, a group of thirty
boys have pledged to put their
faith in God. Each Sunday, the
team meets at some designated
spot and visits a church in body.

Miners Whip Wildcats; Avon Park Visits Friday


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Wildcats drop-
ped their season opening game
24-14 to the hosting Fort Meade
Miners Friday night.
This week the Cats will look
to rebound against the visiting
Avon Park Red Devils at 7 p.m.
in Wildcat Stadium. The Red
Devils were blanked by the
Frostproof Bulldogs last week.
Hardee had a hard time mov-
ing the ball offensively on
Friday and the defense could
not stop the Miners passing
attack as Fort Meade's Jay
Smith threw for nearly 200
yards and three touchdowns.
The Miners received to start
the game and the Hardee
defense was ready.
On just the third play of the
night, sophomore linebacker
Keyonte Holley stepped in front
of a Smith pass at the Miners'
30 and returned it to the 15-
yard line..
The offense faced a fourth-
and-15 when Kris Johnson
passed to Nelson Bethea for a
12-yard gain coming up three
yards short of the first down
and turning the ball back over
to the Miners on their 8-yard
line.
The Miners picked up two
first downs before Hardee
forced a punt which went 55
yards and had the Wildcats
pinned back at their own 10 to
start the drive.


Senior tailback Aaron Barker
picked up a first down with a 9-
yard run over the left end to get
the drive started.
Johnson then completed a
pass to Caleb Purser for a first
down before a Fort Meade
defender made a big hit arid
caused a fumble, which was
recovered by the Miners on the
Hardee 37-yard line.
Fort Meade completed a pass
in the ent zone that was called
back for offensive pass interfer-
ence before Wildcat .James
Greene batted down a fourth-
down pass attempt, turning the
ball back over to the Wildcats.
Hardee took over at its 30
and was forced to punt after a
sack and penalty. sent the
offense backward and gave the
Miners the ball at the Hardee 45
to start the drive.
The Miners drove inside the
10-yard line but had to settle for
a field goal after the Hardee
defense held tough. The Miners
led 3-0 with 6:01 left in the half.
The ensuing kickoff went out of
bounds and gave the Wildcats
good field position at their 41-
yard line.
Barker took the first snap of
the drive up the middle before
darting to the outside untouched
for a 59-yard touchdown run.
Miguel Garcia made the PAT
kick and Hardee led 7-3 with
5:49 left in the half.
Fort Meade answered two
plays later, when Devante Clark


broke loose on a 49-yard first
down run to the Hardee 15-yard
line.
Two plays later, Smith threw
a 12-yard touchdown pass to
Chris Morris making it 10-7
Fort Meade after the successful
PAT with 4:12 remaining in the
half.
Hardee started its next drive
at the 11-yard line and turned
the ball back over to the Miners
two plays later when Johnson
was intercepted at the Hardee
24.
Fort Meade had a first and
goal at the 1-yard line and
almost got out of the scoring
threat when Derick Graham just
missed making an interception.
The next play Smith found


Tobias Culpepper open in the
back corner of the end zone,
pushing the Miners lead to 17-7
just before halftime.
Hardee received to start the
second have and was forced to
punt back to the Miners without
picking up a first down.
Fort Meade quickly turned
the ball back over to the
Wildcats when Holley made a
big hit on the Miner running
back causing a fumble that was
recovered by Keyon Brown at
the Miner's 40.
Hardee faced a third-and-3
before a false start penalty
moved them back and Johnson
was sacked on the next play
forcing a punt.
Punter Jesus Zuniga hit a 53-


yard punt out of bounds at the
Miner's 7-yard line.
Fort Meade then went on a
10-play touchdown drive
capped off by a 30-yard strike
from Smith to Morris for the
touchdown giving the Miners a
24-7 lead with 2:40 left in the
third quarter.
Hardee took over at its 20-
yard line after a touchback and
was forced to punt but the Fort
Meade returned could not hang
onto the ball and the 'Cats
recovered at the Miner 15.
Johnson was sacked on third
down and a fourth-down screen
pass lost six yards, turning the
ball over on down back to the
Miners.
Fort Meade used up more


than five minutes of time before
punting back to Hardee with
3:25 left in the game.
Johnson found Graham open
deep down the right sideline for
a 67-yard touchdown pass mak-
ing it 24-14 after the Garcia
PAT with 3:14 remaining.
The ensuing onside kick was
easily recovered by the Miners
at their 49.
Two plays later Octavio
Alvarez intercepted a Smith
pass and returned it 20 yards to
the Hardee 38.
Hardee drove into Fort
Meade territory before an inter-
ception ended the drive with
just under a minute to go in the
game, allowing the Miners to
run out the clock.

Greetings from Fort Green!
Wow, what a week! Some of
you did not watch the RNC
news on television. All us at the
grass roots level need to be
more involved; and I dare say
we all should get interested in
what is happening to our nation.
This goes for local elections as
well as national. Even with the
current topic before our county
commissioners of neighbors
disputing property rights. This
has been an age-old story since
the War Between the States,
states rights, but most people
believe the only reason was
slavery.
Read the history. Florida
does not want Washington tell-
ing them what they must do and
Hardee County should not' want
Bartow telling them what to do.
Anyway, any American and
especially any Floridian should
be proud of Marco Rubio.
Right here in Hardee County,
we have citizens who came
from Cuba with nothing but the
.'suitcase the entire family's
clothes were in. One in particu-
lar was very successful and
owned a garbage franchise. He
used to talk to .church groups
about his family's exit from
Cuba. Dr. Perez was another.
one that most are familiar with
and I am proud of them for
being successful in America.
Next week we all can watch the
DNC. It was just important that
Tampa was selected for the
RNC.
Buck Toole is not in the local
hospital but in the Bartow Care
Facility. Edith Bassett and I
began our practice of visiting
every Tuesday morning. Last

Tuesday was a rainy day to get
started but we did and when we
arrived at Florida Hospital,
Buck was not there! We did go
on and visit with Julia Faye
Davis and she is about the
same. Her daughter, Terry, is
suffering from really bad back
pain. She was to have surgery
but the physician went on vaca-
tion and before he could
reschedule surgery, her insur-
ance expired.
Harriet Hendry was sup-
posed to be returned to Hardee
Manor Wednesday and is doing
better. Evelyn Durrance is now
in the local hospital receiving
re-hab for her recent knee
replacement. Arthur Womack is
in Blake Hospital with pneumo-
nia and Maxine had knee
replacement there4 Wynell
Davis is in the local hospital for
re-hab. We pray regularly at
church for ones battling cancer,
Mary Samuels, Gary Oden,
Christine Murdock, Jewel En-
glish, William Porter and oth-
ers. Please remember all of
these in prayer.
Kaylee Hogenauer was Very
lucky recently. She got new
glasses and, of course, had to
have a Vera Bradley case. I just
take whatever is free with my
glasses but the younger genera-
tion is different! Anyway, when
you purchased this type of case,
you were entered into a contest
for a very nice purse. She was
the lucky winner! Her grandpa
said maybe he could get her to
buy him a Lotto ticket since she
was lucky and "he had never
won anything in his life"!
Little Hunter Davis turned
nine the last Saturday in Au-
gust. Happy belated birthday
wishes are sent to you, Hunter.
Several of us went to
Wimama for the Labor Day
sing. Earl and Mary Bargeron,
Greg, Shuree, Sam and Arden
.Rawls and Sherman and.l arid
w'e always have a good time. Ii
is always fun camping with
friends and there is a super fish
restaurant near Ruskin that we
all enjoy!
John and Essie Deer drove
over Friday to eat with us and
go to the sing.
An important date coming up
is Saturday; Sept. 15 we will',
have a Methodist Cemetery
workday. This is open to the
community and if you have-rel-
atives buried in this cemetery,
come out and help keep it clean.
The church committee tries to
maintain it and CF Industries is


very good to help when it gets
way behind, but come on out.
As usual our super chef,
Randall Davis will cook hot
dogs on-the grill. I don't know
if it is his super cooking or not
but those are the best hot dogs!
Come early before it, gets too
hot, but we will be there by 8
a.m. Bring your own rakes and
other tools. We are usually
through by noon and if we are
not through, we quit, because
that is as long as us old folks
can work!
Pray for each other and our
nation.


Lucky & Lady are male and female Terriers.
They have wiry coats with longtails.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, Football fans, it is week two of the college season and
week one of the NFL season. The first weekend of college football
had a few surprises but nothing earth shattering. The second week
of football always sees the biggest improvement and teams like
Florida, South Carolina and Texas are especially hoping to see a
lot.
2012 probably won't be the "Year-of the Gator" if the Bowling
Green game is an example of what is ahead. The Gators were out-
gained offensively by a middle-of-the pack MAC team. The
defense gave up almost 400 yards to boot. There is a lot of work to
do in Gainesville this week.
The FSU'Seminoles did as the Swami predicted with Murray
St. This week they take on Savannah St. which lost 80 to 0 at
Oklahoma St. Of course, the folks in Tallahassee are blaming West
Virginia for this schedule debacle because WVU bought out its
option and dropped the game scheduled for Tallahassee this week.
The background of this series is the real story to WVU buying out
the game. WVU had to drop one-out-of conference game in 2012
as they. joined the Big 12. The FSU game was NOT their first
choice. Word got out FSU was going to play WVU at Doak this
year then just buy out the 2013 game in Morgantown when FSU
had to add Pitt and or Syracuse. After all, FSU did break a 3-game
series with WVU when they joined the ACC. The WVU AD called
them on it and wanted an absolute guarantee FSU would return the
game in 2013. He didn't get it. WVU then did what was best for the
program. After all, the series was part of the lawsuit after the ACC
raid of the Big East and it had been moved forward when FSU
requested it previously. So, the blame is not on the Mountaineers
but FSU themselves.
The Big 10 lost to a Top 10 team for the 10th straight time.
when'Alabama destroyed the overrated Michigan team this week-
end. As previously stated, the Big 10 doesn't win when they travel
to the South. Ohio University beating Penn St. brought a smile to
many faces this weekend. The upset by the Bobcats may have been
better than the Death Penalty.
Georgia Southern opened the season with a 58-0 rout of
Jacksonville University, Ezayi Youyoute started his first game at
quarterback for the Eagles and rushed for a career high 164 yards
in the win. http://www.georgiasouthereagles.com/sports/mens/-
football is a link to the GSU website showing the former Hardee
QB in action for GSU. Another former Wildcat, Wintz Terrell, is
also on the GSU team wearing number 61.
Now Let's Look at this week's Bill O' Fare ...
1. Florida at Texas A&M Gators should show that week
two improvement and the Aggies did not play in week one. Throw
in Mark Snyder as the Aggies new Defensive Coordinator and the
Gator offense should look a lot better this week. Florida 34 Texas
A&M 17.
2. Western Carolina at Marshall Herd put up 34 points with
QB Cato passing for over 400 yards against West Virginia in game
one. If only the defense had not given up 645 yards and 69.points
it would have been a great day. Look for the Herd to reverse it all
this week. There is no Geno Smith coming to town. Marshall 58
WCU 13.
3. Pitt at Cincinnati Panthers lost at home to Youngstown
St. last week. They will fit well in the ACC. Bearcats open Big East
play easy. Cincinnati 35 Pitt 10.

Sheriff Holding

Inmate Money


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
/Five of some 288 inmates
have less than $1 owed to them.
The Hardee County Sheriff's
Office has nearly $5,000
inmates have left behind in the
last year.
Although a couple of the
nearly 300 listed in an ad in last
week's issue are the same per-
son, who twice left money
behind after a stay in the local
facility, most are different indi-
viduals.
Some of the amounts are
pretty hefty, $468.91 or
$424.75, for instance. Well over
100 of them, 138 to be exact,
are less than $10.
Whichever amount, little or
large, people left these amounts
in their commissary account or
it was money they possessed
when arrested.'


Large amounts are deposited.
"We don't keep any cash here.
When someone is discharged,
we tell them to come back the
next day after 10 a.m. to pick up
a check for whatever is theirs.
When an inmate is deported, we
know about it ahead of time and
send a check with him/her,"
explained Major Randy Dey.
If people don't come back for
their money before Sept. 14, it
will be turned over to the coun-
ty, going into the General Rev-
enue account, perhaps enrich-
ing it by more than $4,900.
To pick up what is due them,
a person needs to stop by the
Sheriff's Office between 8 a.m.
and 1 p.m. Monday through
Friday.
For more information, con-
tact the Sheriff's Office at 773-
0304.


10th Circuit Judge

To Lead Conference


Tenth Circuit Court Judge
Olin Shinholser has been elected
to serve as the chair of the State
Conference of Circuit Court
Judges for a one-year'term.
Shinholser was sworn in Aug.
14 at the annual business meet-
ing of the Conference of Circuit
Court Judges. He is only the
second judge from the 10th
Circuit to serve in this capacity.
The 10th Judicial Circuit is
comprised of Hardee, Highlands
and Polk counties.
Upon taking this prestigious
seat, Shinholser said, "I am very
appreciative of the great honor
that I have been given to serve
as the chair of the 599 active and
106 (or more) retired circuit


judges in our state. I will work
hard over the next year to live
up to the trust that my col-
leagues have placed in me.
"We have many exceptional-
ly brilliant and hard-working
judges in this state," he contin-
ued. "It is very humbling to be
given this opportunity, given
the choices from which my col-
leagues could have been cho-
sen."
Shinholser is a resident of
Highlands County and is
assigned to hear family cases
there until circuit judges rotate
to another division in January.
He has been on the bench since
1990.

calmly contemplate creatures who, in their tooth-and-claw days,
would have sent us scampering.
The formidable arctodus, for example a toothy critter, judg-
ing by his name, perhaps from the North? Ah, no! It is the other
way around: the North got its name from the beast the Greeks
called "arktos"!
Latins, as you Spanish-speakers know, prefer "ursus" as in
the constellation pointing to the North: ursus major or the "Big
Bear," better known as the "Big Dipper" to us children of the
Industrial Revolution.
Scientists have combined the two ursus arktos to
describe the bearest bear of them all: the brown bear, whose
redoubtable representative the grizzly, gets a "horribilis" added to
its title.
Fortunately, we Floridians have only to deal with ursus amer-
icanus the black bear famed for raiding beehives and tor-
menting campers, when not Dumpster diving.at night.
In the bones department, we're most likely to find a tiemarct-
ian fossil the remains of a Florida Cave Bear that is feared no
longer.
The truth is that we have a thing for these creatures, dating
from our tender years when the tale of an errant Goldilocks put us
to sleep at night and when some of us would go nowhere without ,
our "teddy."
Ursus rooseveltus was the unintended consequence of a photo-
op gone awry. The president, hero of San Juan Hill and famed
Great White Hunter, was to be photographed following Davy
Crockett's example: He was to kill himself a "bar."
But.there were no such to be found.
Finally, someone, with the help of dogs, located an old ursus,
overpowered it and tied it to a tree. "Come shoot!" he called to the
president and his photographers.
But, despite all his blood-letting in the wilds of Africa and
elsewhere, President Roosevelt refused such an unsportsmanlike
gesture. Thus, press-hyped stories of Teddy's bear arose, followed
by an entrepreneur who turned the cartoon version into cash by for-
ever endowing youth with soft, cuddly, furry friends.
Peace River Explorations is a non-profit citizens'organization cre-
ated to promote and grow a "clean industry"' in Hardee County,
,tourism. It markets the county's historical and natural assets,
including fossil hunting, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, horseback
riding and more. Volunteers will be needed to man the visitor's cen-
ter which will be located at the historic Wauchula Train Depot.

Rodeo Bits
By Kathy Ann Gregg


ARCADIA YOUTH RODEO BANQUET
The 2011-12 season for the Arcadia Youth Rodeo Association
finished up on April 21 with the Top Ten Finals during thq day, and
the awards banquet and dance in the evening.
With 10 contestants hailing from Hardee County, we have a
baker's dozen of youth who spend one Saturday a month at the
Arcadia rodeo grounds riding, roping and tying.
This competition runs from-September through April, with no
rddeo in January (due to the Desoto County Fair taking up the park-
ing spaces). As with youth rodeos, there are three divisions: the
Tots, from 3 to 8 years of age; the Juniors, from 9 to 14; and the
Seniors, 15 to 18.
There are two Tots from Hardee County, Cameron Cantu and
Cody Vina congratss on the new little sister, Cody!). These young-
sters vie,back and forth for the lead in the boys, not only at Arcadia,
but also at our own Reality Ranch Youth Rodeo. Cody won the first
place buckle for calf riding, and Cameron received buckles for the
breakaway arid buddy roping events (this is tie-down, but where an
adult flanks the calf for the child, who then takes over and ties it).


TV1r /


Hailey Andrews and Jake Bolin (with other competitors)
laugh with Pat Carlton as he receives his winner's buckle
for the Senior Division chute doggin'.


Not to be outdone by his younger brother, Dawson Cantu
wins the All-Around champion saddle in the Junior
Division for boys. The saddle was sponsored by Javier
Vina and Eric Garcia. Also in the photo are Dawson's par-
ents, Mandy and Luke Cantu.


But in the end, it was Cameron who wound up in first place,
winning the All-Around Boys Tots saddle, his first! Cody took
home the title of Reserve All-Around.
In the Junior Division, there are Dawson Cantu, Parker
Carlton, Tony Webb and Seth McGee. Parker competes only in jun-
ior bull-riding (and then only after football season has concluded)
and chute doggin', and took home the first-place belt buckle in the
latter event. Dawson, Tony and Seth vie for the all-around title with
various roping events, goat-tying and chute doggin', but no chute
doggin' for Tony.
Dawson garnered two more belt buckles, for the tie-down
event and team roping (not sure if it was for heading or heeling, but
I'd guess it was for heading). And that landed Tawson in the sad-
dle (get the pun!) for the Junior Boys All-Aro: ..... addle.
Those competing in the Senior Division are cowboys Jake
Bolin and Pat Carlton, and cowgirls Hailey Andrews, Loni
Damboise and Lacey Cumbee. Pat (along with younger brother)
took home the first-place belt buckle for chute doggin'.
I ^rtc^ a ^igyi ^^^ *'^'


September 6, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 5B
As Lacey only rides barrels (where she ended up high on the
totem pole), she doesn't qualify for the all-around title. Hailey and
Loni compete in barrels, poles and goat-tying, with Loni adding
team roping, and Hailey getting out there in the dirt with all those
boys to do chute doggin'.
Alas, none of them received enough points to bring home a
saddle but there is always next year.
Congratulations! You are all winners!
Keep these "Bits," boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg
in on your events and achievements, and she'll keep you covered.
Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding,
Cowboys and Cowgirls!

Letter To The Editor

Aunt Wishes Success For
The Heartland Hurricanes


COURTESY PHOTO BY KATHYANN GREGG'
The Hardee County Cattlemen's Association held its fourth annual Ranch Rodeo on Friday and Saturday, July 20-21,
at the HCCA arena in Wauchula. Events included team sorting, calf branding, trailer loading, double mugging and
bronc riding for the big cowboys and cowgirls, and mutton busting for the little ones. Nineteen teams participated,
with Markham Ranch team members Dennis Carlton Jr., Wesley Markham, Dalton Edwards, Jay Belflower and Rabon
Durrance winning first place. They received $1,000 and HCCA Rodeo Championship buckles. 7S Bar Inc. team mem-
bers Dawson Cantu, Logan Perry, Luke Cantu, C.J. Parker and Mandy Cantu won second place. They received $500.
SMR, consisting of Jason McKendree, Steve John, Travis Dorman, Tiffany John and Clint Thum tied for third With M&N
Cattle's Christy Newsome, Peck Harris, Matt Smith, Cody Robinson and Josh Brown. Both teams split the $250 prize.
Lane Warren was the mutton buster winner and received a matching buckle, like the championship team. This sanc-
tioned event was a qualifier for the Florida Cattlemen's Association State Ranch Rodeo Finals & Heritage Festival in
Kissimmee, to be held Sept. 28-29.


Dear Editor:
In the last issue of your paper
you printed an article .by
Cynthia M. Krahl regarding the
Heartland Hurricanes. The arti-
cle was wonderfully written,
however I was uncomfortable
with the addition of the infor-
mation concerning the coaches
who had legal issues. It proba-
bly wouldn't have been so
noticeable if you had not
already covered the story on the
front page. The article was very
prominent with pictures of them
included.
I have two nephews who live
in the home with me and play
on two of the teams. Their
names were listed in the article.


At a time when they and their
teammates sbhotild b .able td6
shine, their mother and I found
ourselves whispering about the
article. Now we have second
thoughts about sending the arti-
cle to our relatives.
Our children are innocent.
Give them a break. In addition I
applaud any group of young
men who try to do something
positive in the community. We
should not all have to suffer the
consequences ,for these two
young men's mistakes.
I pray for the success of the
Heartland Hurricanes and the
young men and women
involved.
Annie Green


Stop in and see why we will not be
undersold! Selling 14 brands of

FRUIT OF THE GODS Looking back to Greek mytholo-
gy pomegranates made an appearance.
Now, the sweet, sometimes tart fruit has made its way to rural
Zolfo Springs through Green Sea Farms.
Cindy Weinstein and her husband, David, moved to
Crewsville about six years ago. Previously, they had been living on
a sailboat in the Caribbean for 20 years. After a while they began
thinking of retirement and what their next step would be. They
came up with a plan, a plan that involved pomegranate trees.
They chose to settle in Hardee County after finding great land
that would allow them to do something productive and because of
how genuine the people in the county seemed.
Weinstein then began her research and found a project that was
being conducted by one of Florida's colleges. After learning about
this project, Weinstein's pomegranate orchard became a part of Dr.
Bill Castle's research for the University of Florida.
A professor at UF, Castle began this project in 2009. He has
been evaluating which pomegranate trees would work 'best in
Florida.
Pomegranates are generally not considered suitable for the cli-
mate in the southeastern United States. They are native to modern-
day Iran and the western Himalayan range. They grow best in
desert-like climates, as they go dormant during the cold months.
However a 100-year-old pomegranate tree that still produces


fruit was discovered in Florida.
The UF website says "pomegranate may have potential as an
alternative crop for citrus in Florida and also as a crop for small
farmers."
Learning of this project, Weinstein wanted to become a part of
it. She had never done much farming.before, but has been dedicat-
ed to this project since she planted her first seedlings two years
ago. In fact, Weinstein was elected president. of the Florida
Pomegranate Association.
Since then she has greatly expanded her business, as there are
now 85 different varieties of pomegranates at the ranch.
She has managed to grow the business by grooming and using
the "cuttings" of her already existent trees. Cuttings are the part of
the tree that can be used to plant and later become a replica of the
original tree.
It usually takes between two or three years for the trees to pro-
duce fruit. Weinstein does not let her trees grow fruit, as she is con-
stantly cutting and pruning them in order to grow more trees.
The trees that Weinstein has for sale do produce fruit. She also
sells oak trees.
Pomegranates have several different types of flavors and col-
ors. The inside of a pomegranate can look white, pink, red or pur-
plish.
Weinstein says there are thousands of varieties of flavors, from
cotton candy sweet to tart lemonade.
To learn a little more about pomegranates or if you would like
to buy a pomegranate tree or an oak tree, you may contact
Weinstein at 863-604-3778. You must make an appointment to visit
the farm.

Maria Trujillo at 773-3255 with your business news.

old. Cindy Weinstein cuts and prunes the trees regularly ate trees she has for sale. She began planting pome-
in order to keep them growing in a more organized man- granate trees two years ago and has grown her business
ner and to grow more trees from the cuttings. from there.


Congressman Tom Rooney visited Hardee County recently
and discussed the upcoming national election and the impact it will
have, good or bad, on the future of our country.
He met with some of Hardee County's farmers and ranchers.
The congressman has a leadership role on the House
Agriculture Committee. He has been a strong supporter of agricul-
ture and works hard on issues that pertain to agriculture.
Tom is playing a key role in the Farm Bill, and is working tire-
lessly to see that it benefits our businesses and way of rural life.
Congressman Rooney is in his bid for re-election, and he is truly a
friend to agriculture.

WAUCHULA LIONS CLUB CELEBRATES

85 YEARS OF SERVICE

The Wauchula Lions Club, whose motto is "We Serve", is gearing up to celebrate
their 85th birthday this month. The club was organized in 1927, and currently has
31 members. It is the longest serving Lions Club in tte State of Florida.

The Wauchula Lions Club provides sight/vision assistance to over 50 individuals
a year for many years in partnership with Dr. Mark Sevigny, the Hardee County
Health Department, and the School based Nurse program. Vision services include
screenings, glasses, and surgeries that are paid for by the
Florida Lions Foundation for the Blind. The collection
of.not broken eyeglasses, sunglasses and glass
cases is an ongoing service, and the glasses col-
lected are distributed by Lions to needy areas all .
over the world.

Since 1978 the Wauchula Lions Club has given
college scholarships to Hardee High School sen-
iors. The club has also donated to numerous
other community organizations in need such as
The Hardee Help Center, Habitat for Humanity and
Hardee. Youth Sports.

The Wauchula Lions Club is one of 46,000 clubs, and 1.35 million members mak-
ing Lions the world's largest service club organization. Lions is also one of the
most effective. The members do whatever is needed to help their local communi-
ties. Lions International is the number one non-governmental organization in the
world -- and that rating was achieved by ensuring funds that are received are not
used for operations.

The Wauchula Lions Club meets every Thursday, 12:00 noon, at the Java Cafe. If
you. are interested in learning more about the Wauchula Lions Club and/or would
like an invitation to become a member, please write us at: P.O. Box 248, Wauchula,
FL 33873, or join us for one of our weekly meetings. You can find us on Facebook
under "Wauchula Lions".

ORANG BLU EVIE


The Calculator Dilemma
by Melody Klobuchar, HHS Math Coach


"To use or not to use" that is
' the calculator question that every
secondary math teacher faces.
At Hardee Senior High School,
we believe that while there is
most certainly an appropriate
tinie for calculators to be used,
all students should be able to do
basic math without a calculator.
At the high school level,
it would be unreasonable to
prohibit the use of a calculator
altogether, as there are times
when a calculator is just the ticket
for example, when you need to
find an approximate value for
the cube root of 39. But there
is an uncomfortable trend that is
occurring students are becoming
dependent on the calculator,
and losing their number sense.
Being able to approximate the
cost of a shirt on sale for 25%
off, or calculate the tip for your
waitress at a restaurant is an
example of basic number sense.
The truth is, calculators
are extremely fast, and very
accurate, but they are not all
that bright. They are only as
precise as the numbers you put
in. Students who depend on
calculators without developing
an independent number sense


are unable to tell when they have
arrived at a ridiculous answer
on their calculator screen.
It is much faster to use your
brain to figure out that 8 x 3
= 24, than it is to key it into a
calculator, and yet many students
will reach for the calculator to
do this simple problem. This
dependence on the calculator
hinders their success in Algebra.
Simplifying algebraic expre-
ssions typically requires the
student to do dozens of simple
calculations, which makes
relying on a calculator sort
of like trying to write a letter,
but having to stop at every
other word to look it up in the
dictionary! Obviously we live
in an age of technology, but
access to a calculator does not
eliminate the need for students.
to develop number sense.
Students who have passed
algebra and even pre-calculus
in high school frequently crash
and burn when they take the
college placement test because
they are not allowed to use a
calculator for this test. Math
skills are like building and
maintaining muscles in your
body. If you do not work the


muscle, it will not work for you.
With this in mind, the math
teachers at Hardee Senior High
School have carefully considered
the calculator issue and have
agreed upon the following
guidelines: 1) Calculator use
will be limited during class-
time, and possibly on some tests.
Students will be asked to make
good choices for themselves as
to calculator use for homework.
2) At times, students will be
allowed to use the calculator as
a tool in problem solving, but
they will always be required
to show written work that
demonstrates they understand
the mathematical process.
Calculators can be useful tools
when used appropriately, but
it is easy to get into the habit
of reaching for one before
you even think about what the
question is asking. Remember,
overuse of the calculator
leads to underuse of the brain.
Make sure that you keep the
responsibility of "thinking" to
yourself. Calculators are good
at computation but cannot be
counted on to do any of the
actual "thinking" required to
do a mathematics problem.


When permitted by her math teacher, Reham Alqabsi takes
the opportunity to use her calculator to cieck her math work.


IIULE [NIPITIE


The class of 20i3 is carrying on the tradition of wearing their "Senior Crowns" on Spirit Fri-
days. Above, a group of seniors pose on "the block" and show off their newest crown creations.
"- E


Hardee High teachers work to stay up to date in their fields of expertise. In
that spirit, HHS Culinary Arts instructor Elaitle Pearce attended a week-
long Baking and Pastry workshop at Johnson and Wales University's North
Miami campus this summer. Mrs. Pearce is pictured here applying an egg
wash to braided bread during one of the workshop sessions she attended.


All athletes at HHS show their pride on game days by donning their team
shirts/jerseys. These football players are no exception! The game day pic-
ture above shows varsity football players (left to right) Sahmaud Blan-
din, Adson Delhomme, Stephan Jones, James Greene and Jesus Flores.

A New Beginning

How often we wish for another chance
to make a new beginning.
A chance to blot out our mistakes
and change failure into winning.
It doesn't take a new year to make a new start;
it only takes a deep desire to try with all our heart
to live better and always be forgiving.
Never be afraid of giving
to the world in which we are living.
So never give in despair, or think no one cares.
Never think that you are through,
for there's always tomorrow
and a chance to start anew.
