A camera crew recently visited Paynes Creek Historic State Park in Bowling Green to film a re-enactment of the long-
ago demise of the Kennedy-Darling Trading Post. The crew can be seen here setting up for one of the most impor-
tant shots of the documentary movie. At one point, the director had to stop shooting because a man wearing jeans,
unaware the crew had started to film, had walked behind the store and into the view of the camera. For more on this

Murderer Gets 15-Year Sentence


By CYNTHIA KRAML
Of The Herald-Advocate
One of three men charged in
a Halloween 2010 murder has
been sentenced in Hardee Cir-
cuit Court.
Fernando Vazquez, 31, will
spend the next 15 years in
Florida State Prison following a
plea hearing last week. In it, he
changed his plea from not
guilty in order to accept an
agreement offered by the State
Attorney's Office.
Vazquez was adjudicated
guilty of second-degree murder
by Circuit Judge Marcus J.
Ezelle, who then imposed the
prison term along with $520 in
fines and court costs, $300 in


public defender fees, $800 in
investigative costs and $500 in
prosecution expenses.
Vazquez was one of three
men arrested on Nov. 2, 2010,
by the Bowling Green Police
Department and charged with
second-degree murder in the
Qct. 31, 2010, beating death of
Wilmer Alexander Martinez-
Romero, 30.
Also jailed were Fredi
Ramirez Morales, 26, and
Orlando Morgan-DeLeon, 21.
Vazquez' case is the first to
reach its conclusion in court.
According to Capt. Brett
Dowden of the Bowling Green
Police Department, the three
suspects were among about a


dozen men who shared the
house at 4637 Church Ave.
Sometime that Halloween
night, the trio became em-
broiled in an argument with two
other roommates, the victim
and another man.
"It was petty bickering,"
Dowden described at the time.
"There was evidence at the
scene to suggest alcohol may
have played a contributing fac-
tor."
Sometime around 9:30 p.m.,
the trio allegedly began beating
the pair. The one man success-
fully fled from his attackers,
and survived with only minor
injuries, Dowden said.
Martinez-Romero, however,
did not.
Dowden said Martinez-
Romero was chased to and
apparently killed in the parking
lot of the Parker Farms office at
204 E. Main St. He was beaten


with a "blunt instrument" until
he died.
His body was then dragged
off the parking lot and into a
grassy area by a small tree.
Despite the Main Street loca-
tion, the corpse was not readily
visible in the overgrowth, Dow-

Continuum Labs, the compa-

month, will seek an additional
$3.6 million in Industrial
Development Authority funding
next week in hopes of expand-

include a technology sector and
add as many as 1,000 jobs over
the next 10 years.
Continuum Labs bought the

Special Magistrate for the city.
It comes as the result of pre-
vious discussions and consider-
ations of changing from the
Code Enforcement Board to a
magistrate to decide code viola-
tion issues.
By the end of Monday eve-
ning's discussion, the commis-
sion reached a consensus that it
wanted to move forward in the
changeover. The commission
authorized City Manager Terry
Atchley and staff to prepare an
ordinance to terminate the Code
Enforcement Board and begin
working on a contract for a
Special Master.
The two applicants were
Heather Christman of Christ-
man Law in Haines City and
Candace Preston of Wauchula,
who was present at Monday's
meeting. Her husband, Peter
Preston, who was recently
elected without opposition to
Commission Seat 7, said he
would not speak or vote on the
issues as "Im inordinately
biased."
The applicants were ranked
by a committee which included
Wauchula Capt. Thomas Harris,
City Clerk Holly Smith and
Director of Community Devel-
opment/Assistant City Manager
Olilvia Minshew.
The committee felt both
applicants should be considered
so the commission would de-
cide if it wanted a local or out-
of-town magistrate. Their rank-

What lies under the white tarp protected by barricades and tape warning Wauchulans not to use this portion of the
alleyway between Palmetto and Main streets? An old fuel storage tank was removed and tests of the dirt surrounding
it are being analyzed to determine the extent of soil contamination and how much has to be removed. When Dave
Brown applied for city monies to move his business to the adjacent building, environmental studies showed the po-
tential contamination in the building actually came from the alleyway behind it. The building is owned by Jim See, but
the alleyway is the city's, forcing Wauchula to remove it and any contaminated soil around it. The city is waiting for
test results and "Brownfield" funds for the detailed process of properly removing contaminated soil.

By Jim


Congratulations to U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture for providing $'11 million in federal
funds in the fight against greening that confronts the $9 billion
Florida citrus industry. This will also help other citrus-producing
states.
Greening is a bacterial disease spread by the Asian citrus psyl-
lid that can kill citrus trees and make the fruit sour and worthless.
The citrus industry through grower fruit taxes is also spending mil-
lions of dollars to fight this disease that was confirmed in Florida
it 2007 near Homeland. Greening is widespread in Florida.

Gasoline on Tuesday in Hardee was $3.67 a gallon for regular
unleaded.

The Hardee High Wildcat football team has an open date this
week after a 37-0 loss at Mulberry to drop the Cats' record to 2-3.

Mosaic is sponsoring a sporting clays shoot Saturday, Oct. 27,
at Square One near Lake Placid to raise funds for NU-HOPE Elder
Care Services. The cost is $75 and includes raffle prizes and a
lunch of steak, shrimp, swamp cabbage, green beans, potatoes and
great desserts. Call Laurie Murphy atW53-338-2134 for more infor-
mation, reported Jack Webb, or log in to MurphyL@nuhope.org.
NU-HOPE provides a wide range of services to the elderly in
Hardee and Highlands counties, including operating the Catheryn
MacDonald Center in Wauchula. NU-HOPE took over when

Superachiever!
Basically, that's the consen-
sus in a recent evaluation com-
pleted on Wauchula City Man-
ager Terry Atchley.
Whether that translates into a
raise and/or bonus depends on
additional decisions by the
Wauchula City Commission at
its regular monthly meeting on
Monday at 6 p.m. at City Hall,
when the commission can
authorize a continuing contract
and set a bonus from 0 to 5 per-
cent, from not satisfactory to
outstanding performance.
"You can be proud of your-
self. I've seen a lot of evalua-
tions and I don't think I've seen
one as good," said Commis-
sioner Ken Lambert.
Mayor Keith Nadaskay sum-
marized the evaluations, which
scored 95 of 100 by the seven-
member commission and 94 of


ings were a mere 10 points
apart. Christman's fee schedule
was a bit lower, but would be
offset by travel expenses. She
offered to make travel costs
lower if Wauchula code hear-
ings were set on the same day as
those in Fort Meade, in which
case Wauchula would only have
to pay mileage from Wauchula
to Fort Meade.
Christman also is code en-
forcement magistrate in Frost-
proof, Dundee and Haines City,
under an interlocal agreement
between all the municipalities.
Preston is presently magistrate
for Zolfo Springs and could
operate under a similar inter-
local agreement.
Neither candidate is board
certified, although Preston said
she had been to training in Palm
Beach for both Code Board
members and magistrates and:
felt it was very helpful and
interesting to consider the dif-
ferent approaches. Both have
prior experience as a judicial or
quasi-judicial official.
Commissioner Ken Lambert
said while he loved the commu-
nity involvement of a code
board, he also felt members
were in an untenable position in
following the rules and it was
difficult to find people for the
board with both the knowledge
and desire to do the job.
Lambert said he had observed
Preston in court and felt she had
a good blend of how to present
cases with the facts but not
without a heart.

Week For


BG Seat
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Qualifying in Bowling Green
is all next week.
Anyone who resides within
the city limits can make appli-
cation to be on the Nov. 6 ballot
for the remaining seat on the
Bowling Green City Commis-
sion.
Incumbents Woody Caligan
and Richard Barone were re-
elected without opposition at
the close of regular qualifying
in late August. They will be
sworn in for new three-year
terms at the start of the Oct. 9
monthly meeting. Caligan is
starting his fifth term, not all
consecutive, and Barone is
starting his third term.
No one qualified earlier for
the seat recently vacated by
Commissioner/Mayor Perry
Knight, who resigned to run for
County Commission Seat 5.
Whoever takes that seat will
serve two years, until 2014, the
time when Knight's term would
have expired.
Qualifying for the vacancy
runs from 8:30 a.m. Monday
through 5 p.m. next Friday, Oct.
12.
All Bowling Green commis-
sion seats are at-large, meaning
a person does not have to live in
any particular area of the city to
be eligible, but must be a city
resident.
The qualifying fee is $10 and
there is an $18 city election
assessment, a total of $28.
A resident can pick up a qual-
ifying packet at City Hall on
East Main Street. For more
information, call City Clerk
Pam Northrup at 375-2255.


100 from 12 city staff directly
under Atchley's supervision.
City staff members did not have
to sign their names on the eval-
uation.
"I've had a lot of real chal-
lenges and a lot of support,"
said Atchley as hecompletes
his first year on the job.
Each of the evaluation forms
had eight sections to be scored
from one to five points apiece.
They were: dependability and
reliability; attendance and pun-
ctuality; relationships with oth-
ers, initiative and adaptability;
knowledge of job; quality and
quantity of work; problem
analysis and decision-making;
and supervision and leadership.
Commissioners Nadaskay,
Lambert, Gary Smith and out-
going commissioners gave
Atchley 5's in all eight cate-
gories. Commissioners Patti
Detwiler, John Freeman and
Russell Smith used a mix of 4's


cializes in criminal defense,
said she has been a member of
the town's Historic Preservation
Board, the Community College
Foundation Board, and volun-
teered on'several other munici-
al organizations. "Although I
o less civil cases, it is similar
to criminal as you have to deal
with the fatss whether it is
dependency, divorce or whatev-
er. There are always to sides to
have to consider."
With the time needed to
advertise public hearings for
November and December com-
mission meetings on an ordi-
nance to change the way code
enforcement decisions, are
made, Atchley estimated',it
would be January before a mag-\
istrate was aboard.

The grant money, if ap-
proved by the IDA board
Tuesday morning, would be
used to continue developing the
Blue Water application, for pay
toward new-hire salaries and to
buy servers, equipment and
infrastrlcture needed to operate
in the'building.
Tech River will have classes
for six potential employees who
start together and train for six
weeks before being ready to
begin working. The workers
will be trained by existing
Continuum Labs staff, which
totals about 30 people with
broad experience working in
the technology industry.
Bond said he wants at least
nine out of 10 jobs to go to.
existing or former Hardee
County residents who want to
move back here. Salaries will
range between $32,000 and
$70,000 per year.
Bond said he wants to see the
companies and technology park
grow to more than 1,000
_employees in 10 years, and he
wants to become the largest
employer in the county.
If the company is ever sold
and was moved out of the coun-
ty, Bond said money received
from the IDA would be repaid.
He said if the company was
eventually acquired by a tech-
nology giant such as Google or
Microsoft, it is unlikely the
company would be moved.
The company also 'has two
other web-based applications in
addition to Caresync, Scout-
Ware and Dossier, and hopes to
develop many more through its
incubator program.
Continuum Labs will offer
startup capital and workspace to
individuals with an idea for an
app, but who do not have the
capital or experience needed to
develop it. If the product is suc-
cessful and goes into the market
place, Continuum Labs would
retain an ownership stake in
that new company.

a possible 35 points in each cat-
egory was 31 in job knowledge
and 32 in quality and quantity
of work.
The comments accompany-
ing the numerical evaluation
were summarized, describing
Atchley as "multi-skilled,
always reachable, a respected
member of the community, very
business-oriented, demonstrates
the ability to juggle multiple
projects and responsibility,
effectively delegates to maxi-
mize his time, needs continuing
education, gives 100 percent,
has the courage to make diffi-
cult decisions, is an asset to the
city."
Only three of the 12 employ-
ee evaluation gave all 5's to
Atchley; there were some 4.5's
and some 4's. Lowest marks
were in knowledge of job (53
out of a possible 60 points),
dependability (54.5) and su-


pervision/leadership (55.9).
Employee comments also
spanned a range: "performs
above and beyond what any one
person should do; is an effec-
tive and courteous co-worker;
makes biased decisions in some
areas; always on time and ready
to go-hits the ground running;
has some of the best ideas the
city has seen in 20 years; regu-
larly visits all departments to
familiarize himself with opera-
tions, needs and concerns;
while he may not have the
knowledge yet, he is learning
and attempting to know the ins
and outs of all departments;
staff has been challenged with
assignments but get the team
support and effort to get it done;
needs to be more open-minded
and equal in his decisions;
comfortable with is decisions'
and professional; decisive and
confident."


Letter To The Editor

Christians Should Leave

The Democratic Party


Dear Editor:
Any Christian, Jew, or
Muslim (and everyone else)
who votes for a democratic can-
didate, especially on the nation-
al level; will be endorsing a
godless society. A godless soci-'*
ety will self-destruct.
Christians, Jews, and
Muslims share, in common, at
least two perspectives of reali-
ty: (1) God, for the Christians,
and Jews; Allah for the
Muslims, created the heavens
and earth and all they contain;
(2) There are absolute truths in
these three faiths.
People who share and support
Agodless society have one
absolute truth: The right to
silence anyone, or any organi-
zation, who does not share and
support their perspective of
reality.
A godless society operates on
one basic truth or principle: "To
do what is right in\one's own
eyes." For example, if a man
and a man, or a woman and a
woman, feel that it's right to
marry and live as a family unit,
including intimacy, they 'Will do
it. If a brother and sister, moth-
er and son, or a father and
daughter feel it's okay, and
want to marry, they will do it. If
a person wants to marry an ani-
mal, and be intimate, he or she
will do it. If a woman feels it's
okay to kill a human before
birth, she will do it, which is
being done now.
If a godless society feels it is
okay to kill humans who are a
burden to their society (elderly;
handicapped-bedridden, or
anyone who requires total
dependence on others, for
example), they will do it. There
are no limits in a godless socie-
ty.
If the current, democratic
administration is given another
four years, our society will be
entering a new round of the
Dark. Ages. During the new
Dark Ages, anyone who resists
the new perspective of reality to
the point of speaking out could
legitimately be burned-at-the-
stake, beheaded, or put into
head and arm locks or chains in
the town square. This, of
course, would be after the god-


less people had taken all of the
"criminals'"physical resources.
Then Jews, Muslims, and
Christians (and perhaps other
religious faiths) would be
forced to go underground.
Storming meeting places by the
police of the godless society
.would become commonplace.
That's when faiths would
strengthen beyond human
strength.
Warning to godless people:
As persecution at this level
grows, and it will, people with
devout faith will ban together-
Muslims, Christians, and Jews
(and others)-and, once again,
work toward religious freedom
and freedom of speech, which
will be two of the first rights
lost in the godless society.
We're already seeing the begin-
ning of losing freedom of reli-
gion and freedom of speech in
America. This trend will contin-
ue to spread into all facets of
our society.
The framers of the 2012
Democratic Party Platform
wanted to eliminate all refer-
ences to "God". Why would
they_' do that? Patrick. J.
Buchanan (September 7, 2012)
gave an accurate answer to that
question, "Why include in a
statement of party beliefs a ref-
erence to God when a huge
slice of that party would be
deeply offended because such a
reference would be the party's
formal declaration that their
atheist or agnostic beliefs are
wrong."
Bishop E.W. Jackson, a Black
minister in Norfolk, Virginia, is
urging all Christians to leave
the Democratic Party. For the
sake of a society that preserves
and treasures human life and
decency as well as for the
preservation of freedom of
speech and freedom of religion,
I am urging all Christians, Jews,
and Muslims (and anyone else
who believes there should be
boundaries in which a society
should function) to abandon the
Democratic Party so that
America will remain "The land
of the free."

The open house is a great
way to get kids excited about
meeting firefighters, police offi-
cers and emergency responders
as well as to- teach them, and
adults, a few safety tips.
Through all of the fun, fire-
fighters will also tryt to raise
money for a colleague who has
a health problem which has left
her unable to work for the time
being. They are hoping to col-
lect donations to assist her and
her family with the growing
medical expenses.
The open house will be a
great beginning to Fire
Prevention Week, which is Oct.
7-13. This year's national
theme will be "Have Two Ways
Out!" which encourages
families to have more than one
way to escape from a fire.
SIt will take place at 149 K.D.
Revell Road, just off U.S. 17
North in Wauchula, on Saturday
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch
will be provided to all and kids
will receive fire hats.
Everyone is invited to have a
day of fun and help celebrate
HCFR's 25th anniversary.


SKUNKS
He was sighted 20 years ago, gazing out over an orange grove
north of Fort Green before he hightailed it. Seven to eight feet tall,
some 400 pounds.
A report was filed.
Was it an "SKP" from Wauchula's Center for Great Apes? A
practical joker? Or Florida's answer to the yeti: a "skunk ape"?
It's the skunk part we worry about.
We need no supplements to our mephitis mephitis (the striper)
and its spotted cousin spilogale putorius dotting our highways with
"smells" and perfuming our dogs in their inimitable way.
For this last, we keep on hand asupply of hydrogen peroxide,
baking soda and dishwashing liquid, the combination of which
beats the tomato juice we were told about.
Skunks have taught us the difference between anxiety (which
we feel in their presence) and fear (as inspired by, say, large alliga-
tors).
Judging by the fossil record, skunks have been stinking up this
planet about three times as long as we "hominids" have.
Paleozoologists proudly exhibit one of their jaw bones, dug up in
Germany and dating back 12 million years.
Despite all. this, we cannot help but find these critters to be
cute.
Witness Chuck Jones' "Looney Tunes" version: Pep6 Le Pew!
A Frenchman, no less, even though the nearest thing to a skunk in
France, the purpis, is a sort of weasel. Pepd, who lives in a cellu-
loid world, is no threat to us. (Smell-O-Vision and Odorama weie
short-lived cinematographic phenomena).

Pep6's heavy French accent was produced by
Hollywood's Mel Blanc, the "man of a thousand voices," known to
us all for his renditions of a menagerie, including Pep6, Bugs
Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety Bird, Speedy Gonzales and, of course,
Porky Pig who, at the end of so many movies, announced: "That's
all folks!"

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 fbssil 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.

An Open Letter to our Friends and Neighbors:

CF Industries has been a proud partner with the families, students and businesses of Hardee County for more than 30 years. As a good neighbor, a reliable source of
stable jobs and a strong contributor of tax and severance revenues to the county, we look forward to continuing this partnership. On September 13th, the Hardee Board
of County Commissioners voted in favor of our company's Development of Regional Impact (DRI) application, paving the way for CF Industries' long-term presence in
Hardee and the region. We are deeply grateful for the support of our application to extend the life of our existing mining operation and jobs through at least 2035.
You will hear more about CF Industries' development agreement with Hardee County in the coming weeks. The focus of this agreement builds on our history of investing
in education and recreation. This is in keeping with the recent Hardee Visioning Project, and will create a legacy of resources to benefit the people in Hardee County for
years to come.
CF Industries has a long track record of "doing things right" as we work with our neighbors to create an atmosphere in which we all can succeed. Our values of
stewardship and of being a good neighbor fit right in with the values of Hardee County. In a recent newspaper article, a question was raised about the compatibility of our
operations with one of our neighbors. As history has shown, CF Industries' existing phosphate mining operations are not incompatible with neighboring property owners -
in fact, quite the contrary. This was demonstrated during the recent Board of County Commissioner hearings, in which numerous environmental and health experts
testified to the compatibility of our operations with our neighbors and their business operations.
There is no objective reason for any business to move its business operations, or relocate its employees in reaction to the mining operations on CF Industries' property.
However, as a part of the recent hearings, and to demonstrate the depth of our "good neighbor" policy, CF Industries agreed to additional compromises to ease any
concerns. These include: 1) an accelerated mining schedule to get "in and out of the setback area closest to our neighbor before any development of their proposed
rural center, 2) the construction of a substantial berm and tree barrier, and 3) increased reclamation to create a "park-like" setting around our neighbor.
CF Industries is proud of its reputation as a good neighbor and we
look forward to many more years of being a faithful community
partner. We support our neighbors and the jobs they provide, and
are proud to be a strong economic development partner, as well
as a protector of wildlife, water and the environment.'
We look forward to updating you on the details of our development '
agreement with Hardee County, and are excited about the
opportunities for the county to expand local education and
recreation resources for the benefit of many future generations of
Hardee County citizens. t

Film Crew Makes Movie At Paynes Creek Park


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
Lights, camera, action!
Paynes Creek Historic State
Park in Bowling Green turned
into something of a Hollywood
set for two days in September
as a television crew showed up
for filming.
Although there was no Brad
Pitt or Angelina Jolie to be seen,
a couple of dozen other actors
from around Florida did appear
to play the parts.
The film, which will be used
at the park, is about the tragedy
that occurred long ago at the
Kennedy-Darling Trading Post


and the negative effect it con-
tinued to have on others. It
takes place during the 1880s,
when there was much conflict
between the U.S. Government
and the Seminole Indians.
In all, there were three wars
with the Seminoles, the first
began in 1818 and drove the
Seminoles from the Panhandle
to the peninsula. The second
war went from 1835 to 1842.
According to Ancestry.com, it
was the longest and costliest
Indian War in American history.
After the Second Seminole
War, "the Indians were confined
to a reservation in the southern


part of Florida," says the web-
site. And, there was some ten-
sion between the Seminoles and
"white" settlers.
In order to survive, the
Indians would often travel to
the Gulf Coast to trade, where
they would sometimes pass
whites settlem' To decrease
the chances of conflict between
the two, a trading post for the
Indians was built.
The Kennedy-Darling store
was established in the spring of
1849, although it did not last
long. On July 17, 1849, tragedy
struck when five renegade
Indians attacked the trading
V.-. -


PHOTOS BY MARIA TRUJILLO
Here, the actors playing the renegade Seminole Indians can be seen talking about how
to best play their parts.


This shows one of the most important parts of the film, the Seminoles getting ready to
attack the trading post.


I .. -: -.
Some cast and crew take a well-den rved break. The crew members consisted of
(beginning third from left) VictorS.pangler, second camera and videographer; Jill Klein,
production assistant; Louis Zimeglio, lighting; Don Flynn, director and director of pho-
tography; and Ty Wood, writer and producer.


These were some of the actors who were ready for their close-ups. They sit and wait
while watching the Seminole Indians in action.

post with three-clerks inside,
Capt. George S. Payne, Dem-
psey Whiddon and William
McCullough.
This attack came a few days
after another attack near Fort
Pierce, where a man was killed.
The violence was not part of an
overall Indian uprising, howev-
er. In fact, one of the attackers
had been outlawed by his tribe.
The film then goes on to
show how what happened on
that day led to even more mis-
fortune for a number of men at
Fort Chokonikla, which was
built after the attack on the
Kennedy-Darling Trading Post.
The crew filmed these scenes
on Sept. 15 at Hillsborough
River State Park, using its Fort
Foster.
Jill Klein, a production assis-
tant on the set, said the movie
will also feature interviews with
the Bowling Green park rangers
and footage of people in the
park.
This movie will be an essen-
tial way to teach visitors to the
park about its history.
When completed, park man-
ager Jackson Mosley hopes to
host a movie premiere, where
he can invite the entire town to
enjoy the film. It will then be
played at the park's Visitor
Center.
According to Mosley, the
video they currently have of
what happened to the trading
.post corigists ofadesl;and has-
n't beehuopdated since 1984.
During this filming of the

attack, the crew had to have
everything just right.
Crew members would per-
form "take" after take, making
absolutely sure they were able
to get the best shot.
All of the filming ,had to be
completed in a matter of three
days. At times this became dif-
ficult, due to shifting winds,
mud and a nearby fire that
would force the crew to change
the direction of a camera or
rearrange the lighting equip-


ment.
Mosley says everyone at the
park is excited to see the fin-
ished product, and everyone has
wanted this to happen for a long
time.
The movie is set to be ready
by the end of the year, although
Mosley anticipates it will come
out sometime in November.
Paynes Creek Historic State
Park- is located along Lake
Branch Road in Bowling

Zoning Issues Rehashed


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Land use special exception
extensions were granted recent-
ly.
At its Sept. 20 meeting, the
Hardee County Commission
confronted a pair of proceed-
ings and gave each time to
resolve its issues.
One, Easton Sales and
Rentals off SR 62, had been
given a drop-down date of the
Sept. 20 meeting to comply
with zoning requirements or be
closed.
Planning Director Kevin
Denney said he had no response
from the landowner or lease.
Commissioner Grady John-
son said the county needed to
tweak things to be more buo
ness friendly and not the lose
the revenue from such a busi-
ness.
Two years ago, the county
notified the company that a land
use change had been approved
to make it easier for the compa-
ny to operate, but a Special
Exception Site plan and permits
were needed to safely change
the building from its former use
of a recycling center, to a heavy
equipment rental business and
repair shop.
After lengthy discussion, the
commission changed its mind
and gave the heavy equipment
company 45 more days to com-
ply or be closed. The 45-day
.limit was based on how long it
takes a normal Site Develop-
ment Plan to be completed.
In discussion'of the options,
commissioners wanted to be


sure the company could have no
complaint that it had been given
enough opportunity to comply.
"It's not fair to other residents.
We cannot disregard it. We have
to enforce our policies," said
Commissioner Dale Johnson.
In another zoning matter, the
commission granted a six-year
extension of a Major Special
Exception for a Roy Moore
Road business to continue to
use its 36.37-acre property as
borrow pit, excavating up to
200,000 yards of dirt every
spring for use by Manatee
County on its road projects.
The company would thus use
the business for four to five
months a year, which was ap-
proved with conditions of
watering the road as many
times daily as necessary to keep
down the dust and make repairs
for damages it has caused. It
would not be responsible for
road maintenance, culverts and
other issued during the off-sea-.
son.
In the third zoning matter, the
commission approved an ordi-
nance to amend the Generalized
Mining Overlay map included
with the county's Comprehen-
sive Land Use Plan. Denney
said the ordinance would only
make it possible for mining to
occur in the additional 640
acres of Mosaic's Ona Mine but
the company would still need to
go through the entire DRI
process for mining approval.
A final ordinance approved
would require subdivisions to
either provide water and sewer
services to its,residents or con-


nect to county services if they
were available in that particular
area.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved final reading of
the developer's agreement with

New Law Requires Everyone


To Repoi
The nation's toughest and
most comprehensive sexual-
abuse reporting law took effect
in Florida on Monday.
It comes as Florida also
embarks on a statewide kinder-
garten education program to
help young children avoid the
traps predators set.
The new law clarifies that all
people have an obligation to
report suspected sexual abuse of
children, regardless of whether
the suspected abuser is a parent,
neighbor, friend or stranger.
Previously, the state's Abuse
Hotline only took reports about
sexual abuse by a child's care-
givers.
The law. HB 1355, "Protec-
tion of Vulnerable Persons,"
also imposes a fine of up to $1
million on any public or private
college or university whose
administration or law enforce-
ment agency willfully and


Suspected Abuse


knowingly fails to report child
abuse that occurs on its campus,
in any of its facilities, or at or
during college- or university-
sponsored events and functions.
The law is intended to pre-
vent the kind of institutional
coverup that allowed the sexual
abuse of children to persist for
so long in several of the highly
publicized national cases.
"We all knew it was our
moral obligation to report child
abuse," abuse survivor and
advocate Lauren Book said.
"Now, the Florida Legislature
has made it clear that reporting
abuse is also a legal obligation
with serious penalties."
The law took effect as Florida
launches a comprehensive,
statewide sexual-abuse preven-
tion curriculum in all kinder-
garten classes throughout the
state to educate Florida's
youngest students about how to


protect themselves from abuse.
Called "Safer. Smarter Kids,"
the curriculum was developed
by Book's "Lauren's Kids"
foundation at the direction of
the 2011 Florida Legislature.
The bill also:
Requires the Florida Child
Abuse Hotline to accept child
abuse reports even if the sus-
pected abuser is not a direct
caregiver.
Makes clear that everyone
must report abuse, not just pro-
fessionals previously specified
as mandatory reporters, such as
teachers and health-care profes-
sionals. With this change, Flor-
ida has the strongest, and the
only, fully mandatory abuse-
reporting law in the country.
Provides relocation assis-
tance for victims of sexual
assault where there is a reason-
able fear for their safety if they
remain in their homes

Project: The applicant applied on May 18, 2012 to the Department for a Title V air operation permit-renewal.
This is a renewal of Title V air operation permit No. 0490340-015-AV.
The existing facility is an electrical power plant, which consists of the following emissions units and activities: two

62-210, 62-213 and 62-214, of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.). The proposed project is not exempt from

Authority. The complete project file includes the dr ar perm.-fii y Statemient of Basis, the application, and the in-
formation submitted by the applicant, exclusive cl conlfdentil records under Section 403.111, F.S. Interested
persons may view the draft/proposed permit by visiting the following wvebsite: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emis-
sion/apds/default.asp and entering the permit number shown above. Interested persons may contact the Per-
mitting Authority's project review engineer for additional information at the address or phone number listed above.
Notice of Intent to Issue Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue a renewed Title V air
operation permit to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable assur-
ance that continued operation of the existing equipment will not adversely impact air quality and that the project
will comply with all appropriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212, 62-213, 62-214, 62-296 and
62-297, F.A.C. The Permitting Authority will issue a final permit in accordance with the conditions of the draft/pro-
posed permit unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures results in a different deci-
sion or a significant change of terms or conditions.
Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the draft/proposed Title V air op-
eration permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must
be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the Permitting Au-
thority at the above address. As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permitting
Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is sufficient
interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and location in the Florida Administrative
Weekly (FAW). If a public meeting is requested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permit-
ting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the
Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a
significant change to the draft permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft/proposed permit and re-
quire, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection. For
additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number.
Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition
for an administrative'hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed with (received by) the Department's Agency Clerk in the Office
of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
#35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice
under Section 120.60(3), F.S. must be filed within 14 days of publication of the Public Notice or receipt of a written
notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting
Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the
date of publication. A 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 within the appropriate time period shall constitute
a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a
proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a
motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority's action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information: (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 tele-
phone number of the petitioner's 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 rights will be affected by the
agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency action or
proposed 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 agency's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes
the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action including an explanation
of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the pe-
titioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed
action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority's action is based
shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above,
as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the Permitting Authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this Public Notice
of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the
Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accor-
dance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air
operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public
comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of publication
directly to EPA at the following email address: oquendo.ana@epa.gov. Although EPA's 45-day review period
will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to
object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA's 45-day review period is performed after the public
comment period has ended. The final Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-
day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or signif-
icant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA's 45-day review of this project and the deadline
for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/Der:
mits/florida.htm.
Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition
the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45-day review period as es-
tablished at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any pe-
tition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30-day
public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of
the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for
such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not
stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions
filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be
filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460. For more in-
formation regarding EPA review and objections, visit EPA's Region 4 web site at http:h/www.eoa.-

'FILE OF LIFE' INFORMATION AVAILABLE SATURDAY
The Wauchula Police Department in conjunction with Hardee
County Fire-Rescue is currently organizing a File of Life Program
in Hardee County.
This program has proven to be very successful and beneficial
in all 50 states, with over 15.7 million individual participants. The
program is a personal medical home file prepared for emergency
first responders.
Many times first responders encounter citizens that need im-
mediate medical attention, but find themselves unaware of the indi-
vidual's medical history. It is very important for emergency med-
ical personnel to be aware of such vital information in order to pro-
vide the best quality of service.
Individuals participating in the File of Life Program will
receive a card which contains vital personal medical information
and is to be kept on the outside of the resident's refrigerator in a
bright red magnetic pocket, readily accessible to medical personnel
when they arrived on an emergency call.
The medical card lists the patient's emergency medical con-
tacts, health problems, medications taken, allergies, recent surg-
eries and more.


i
i :la


The benefits of participating in the File of Life Program are
simply the fact that every second counts.
Emergency rescue teams instantly know the medical history of
a patient and corrective treatment can begin at once. This impor-
tant information can then be passed on from medical personnel to
hospital emergency staff when the patient arrives there, and no time
is wasted getting information.
Citizens participating in this program will have the peace of
mind of knowing they will have prompt and quality care due to
medical personnel having potentially life-saving information.
The safety and care of the citizens of Hardee County are of the
utmost importance of the Wauchula Police Department and Hardee
County Fire-Rescue.
The File of Life Program will be available to the citizens of
Hardee County soon. Priority will be given to citizens 55 years or
better or with a medical condition.
For questions about this program, contact me, Ofc. Amy
Drake, crime prevention officer, at the Wauchula Police Depart-
ment at 773-3265 or by e-mail at adrake@wauchulapolice.com.
Additional information about the File of Life Program will
also be available at the Hardee County Fire-Rescue open house, at
149 K.D. Revell Road in Wauchula, this Saturday between 10 a.m.
and 2 p.m. A notification list will also be made available at this
event if you wish to participate in the program and be notified
when the files arrive.

Panthers Pounce On Wildcats


JV Dumps Dragons 29-0


By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The visiting Hardee Wildcats
were shut out 37-0 by the
Mulberry Panthers and fell to 2-
3 for the season.
Hardee has a bye week with
no game Friday night and will
use the off week to rest and get
in some extra work before trav-
eling to Frostproof on Oct. 12.
Mulberry received to start
the game and the defense forced
a quick three-and-out and the
Hardee offense took over at the
Panther 34-yard line.
The Wildcats could not pick
up a first down and were quick-
ly forced to punt back to the
Panthers.
Mulberry then went on a 14-
play drive that ended with a 40-
yard field goal, giving the
Panthers a 3-0 lead with 6:49

left in the first quarter.
Hardee then took over at its
20-yard line and turned the ball
over on the first play of the
drive when the running back
could not secure the handoff
from the quarterback.
Mulberry started the drive at
the Wildcat 19-yard line and
scored three plays later on a 19-
yard touchdown pass. After the
PAT attempt was no good the
Panthers led 9-0 with 10:20 left
in the half.
Hardee picked up two first
downs on its next drive before
being forced to punt. Punter
Octavio Alvarez had the snap
sail over his head and had to
down the ball at the Hardee 13-
yard line where Mulberry took
over.

play with a 13-yard quarterback

The PAT pushed the lead to
16-0 which it remained through
the first half.
Hardee received to start the
second half and picked up two
first downs on a pair of passes
from Quarterback Kris Johnson
to Derrick Graham and Keyonte
Holley before being forced to
punt.
Hardee's defense quickly got
the ball back for the Wildcats
when Alvarez recovered a fum-
ble.
The Wildcats had to punt
back to the Panthers after John-
son was sacked. A good punt
return gave Mulberry the ball at
the Hardee 31-yard line.
On the first play, Mulberry
threw deep to the end zone and
the Wildcat defender had a
would-be interception slip
through his hands and into the
arms of the Mulberry receiver
for a touchdown.
The PAT put Mulberry up 23-
0 with 5:23 left in the third
quarter.
Hardee could not convert a
fourth down attempt and turned
the ball over on downs at the
Hardee 38-yard line. Six plays
later, Mulberry scored again
and pushed the lead to 30-0
with 1:49 left in the third quar-
ter.
Mulberry added one more
score with 4:47 left in the game
which made the final score 37-0
and instituted a running clock
the rest of the game because of
the more than 35-point lead.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee junior Wildcats
have learned to score often and
early, just in case of bad weath-
er.
That paid off in last Thurs-
day's game at Lake Placid,
where the junior 'Cats built a
29-0 lead with 5:30 left in the
second quarter when the game
was called due to lightning
storms.
Today (Thursday), Hardee
hosts the Sebring junior Streaks
in a 7 p.m. game. The Oct. 11
game is at Avon Park, the Oct.
18 game at Tampa Jesuit,
rescheduled to 7 p.m., and the
season finale is the Oct. 25
rescheduled home game against
Mulberry.
Hardee controlled the ball
offensively and defensively at
Lake Placid last week. Fresh-
man quarterback Trequan Hol-
ley completed two of three
passes, one to Thomas Gomez


for a 29-yard TD in the first
quarter and one to Jordan Jones
for a 31-yard gain. Kicker Rigo
Rodriguez hit on all.three extra-
point boots.
Holley also used a variety of
backs. Ryan Ramirez had nine
carries for 71 yards, including a
12-yard TD run. Tyler Bragg
chipped in with a pair of carries
for 17 yards, one for a 3-yard
TD. Johnny Luna and Bryce
Anderson added runs.
Jones got the additional TD
points on a 61-yard punt return
and also grabbed a conversion
pass from wide receiver Daniel
Permenter for two points.
Defensively, an Anderson in-
terception set up the Wildcats'
first score of the night. Tackles
were recorded by C.K. Doug-
las, Gomez, Alex Hinojosa,
Zack Coronado, Deshawndre
"Debo" McMillian, Anderson,
Jones, Andrew Hagans and
Kevin White.
Other junior Wildcats are


Chauncey Rivers,Austin Judah,
Omar Alamia, Tomas Hinojosa,
Johnny Saldivar, Dalton
Bethea, George Lackey, Dakota
Eures, Blake Crawley, Sanuel
Negrete and John Snell.
Also, Ty Trammell, Kole
Robertson, Jose Coronado,
Matthew Green, Isiah Capron,
Noah Coronada, Roberto
Torres, Ryan' Ham, Arturo
Ramirez, Alan Brown, David
Ramirez, Agustin Bravo, Andy
Manley, Al Brown, and Roby
Paris, who snared a pass for a
39-yard TD and another pass in
last week's game, in which the
news report inadvertently at-
tributed them to another player.
Coach Rod Smith and assis-
tants Barry White, Todd Bolin
and Van Crawford continue to
prepare the junior Wildcats for
a full outing, when the weather
will cooperate. This week's
home game would be a good
opportunity.

Swimmers Split With Avon Park


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
In a rematch with Avon Park,
Hardee teams again split the
difference.
As in the previous meet at
home. Hardee girls again won,
this time, 133-119, while the
Wildcats again lost out on the
numbers, 175-109.
This week's only meet is
today (Thursday) at Lake Plac-
id. Next week, it is Senior Night
on Tuesday at 5:30 at home in
yet a third meeting against
Avon Park. Swimmers will par-
ticipate in the two-day Heart-
land Invitational at Lake Placid
on Oct. 12-13, a tune-up for dis-
trict competition which is the
week' of Oct. 22. in Winter
Haven.
One of the big differences in
the two meets against Avon
Park was the record-breaking
performance of senior Wyatt
Kofke, who touched the wall
time pad in 59.46. His feat not
only broke the minute mark for




MUSICAL BRUNCH
fN


that event, but also reset the
Hardee High back stroke record
set by Calvin Bates 15 years
ago. Kofke lowered that record
by an amazing 3.9 seconds and
dropped four seconds from his
previous best this year.
Although the meet last Thurs-
day was cancelled by lightning
by the time the divers were
ready, Kofke set another first.
He beat last year's 200-free-
style winner Tavis Methot and
set a time of 1:58.25. It was the
first time a Hardee swimmer
had beaten an swimmer from
All Saints' Academy, which
dominates area swimming.
Coaches Jan Brutus and
Missy Ziegler have been
pleased with the overall effort
of their teams and seeing times
drop for Kofke and other swim-
mers.
BOYS
Kofke's superlative perform-
ance at Avon Park was one of
six first-place finishes for the
night. Kofke also, won the 200

Build A 'Bot' Saturday

At Youth Science Day


Hardee County 4-H'ers will
join Miillions of young people
across the nation in becoming
"scientists for the day" during
the fifth annual 4-H National
Youth Science Day.
It will be held this Saturday
from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the
Agri-Civic Center at the inter-
section of Altman and Stenstrom
roads in Wauchula.
This annual event seeks to
spark an interest in science and
future science careers, and to
ultimately reclaim the nation's
position of leadership in scien-
tific exploration.
Youth will participate in the
4-H Eco-Bot Challenge: the
2012 National Science Experi-
ment.
Designed by The Ohio State
University Extension, this year's
experiment will introduce youth
to robotic engineering concepts
as they program an autonomous
robot to clean up a simulated
environmental spill.
In Hardee County, 4-H'ers
will enhance their engineering
skills by assembling their own
Eco-Bots and surface controls to
manage the environmental
cleanup. Youth will then test the
interaction between the Eco-
Bot's design features and vari-
ous surface control configura-
tions to determine the most
effective cleanup solution for
the simulated spill.

"Our nation is falling behind
other countries in the fields of
science, technology, engineer-
ing and math," said Carolyn H.
Wyatt, Hardee County 4-H
agent.
"However," she added, "par-
ticipation in high-quality posi-
tive youth development pro-
grams like 4-H NYSD offers
youth and adults the opportuni-
ty to engage in scientific explo-
ration and work together to
build the next generation of our
nation's scientists, engineers
and mathematicians."
The Science Day is a hit with
local 4-H'ers.
"I participated in 4-H Na-
tional Youth Science Day last
year, and had a great time learn-
ing about wind energy,"
Destiny McCauley said. "I have
participated in science fairs for
several years, and the 4-H
experiments are really cool! I
can't wait to try out the 4-H
Eco-Bot Challenge this year."
This year's 4-H National
Youth Science Day is jointly
sponsored by Hardee County 4-
H and Peace River Electric
Cooperative on a local level.
The national sponsors are
Toyota, Lockheed Martin,
Donaldson, and John Deere.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee Junior High Lady
Wildcat softball team split
games last week.
The girls lost at Desoto last
Monday and won at home
against Lake Placid on Thurs-
day
This week's games included a
trip to Sebring on Monday and
a visit from Avon Park today
(Thursday). Next week's only
game is a trip on Thursday over
to Sebring to play Hill-Gustat.
The season concludes with an
Oct. 15 visit from DeSoto, a trip
to Lake Placid on Oct. 18 and
the season finale at home
against Sebring on Oct. 25.
At DeSoto last Monday, lead-
off batter seventh grader
Destinee Jackson doubled and
singled twice, but she was
stranded all three times she got
on base.
DeSoto put runs on the board
in the first, second, third and
fifth innings on a combination


of hits, errors and overthrows.
Usually strong Lady 'Cat pitch-
er Sarah Welch had only two
strikeouts.
Hardee's only run came in the
second inning. With one, away,
Alayna Carranco was hit by a
pitch, advanced to third on an
error on a Nubia Gomez hit and
touched home on a Mallory
Gough sacrifice. It was too lit-
tle, as DeSoto won 8-1.
It was different last Thursday
when Hardee hosted Lake
Placid, winning 13-1 in the
fourth inning on the 10-run rule.
A leadoff single for Lake
Placid in the top of the first
went for naught with three con-
secutive outs.
Hardee got on the board with
a trio of tallies in the home half
of the first. Jackson doubled to
left field and Shayna Harned
followed with a single. Jackson
scored on a passed ball and
Hardee to second on an error
and third on a stolen base.
Michaela Villarreal was hit by a


pitch and an Elliott hit plated
Harned.
Villarreal was out trying to
stretch bases, but Elliott scored
on consecutive hits by Alexis
McBride and Ariana Ramos.
Hardee led 3-0.
Lake Placid came back to put
a run on the board in the second
inning on an error and single.
Hardee sent 10 batters to the
plate in the bottom of the sec-
ond, with Makayla Benavidez
coming up twice. She scored
the first run on a pair of errors
and back-to-back passed balls .
Jackson, Harned, Elliott and
Ramos also scored, upping
Hardee's lead to 9-1.
Lake Placid stranded one in
the third inning, and Hardee
went back to work, putting a
final four runs on the board on
hits by Gomez and Deborah
Figueroa, coupled with errors
and steals. When Lake Placid
went three up, three down in the
top of the fourth, Hardee won
13-1 on the 10-run mercy rule.

Softball Girls Split Games


Girls Playing Tough


Volleyball
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
They did everything but win.
In back-to-back district
matches last week, the Hardee
varsity volleyball team pushed
both outings to the full five
games. In both, they won the
opening game, but opponents
made nece-iry adjustments to
take the vic'-: s.
This week is a trio of game.
After a trip to Lake Placid on
Monday, Hardee came home for
a pair of district matches,
Tuesday in a repeat encounter
with Lake Wales and today
(Thursday) vs. Auburndale,
another district opponent. Next
week's Hardee is at Teneroc on
Tuesday and Auburndale on
Thursday.
Hardee went to Lake Wales
last Tuesday and played ex-
tremely, competitively. The
Lady Wildcats won the first
game 25-17, behind the seven
service points of senior Jessica
Harrison. Emily Albritton and
Bailey Carlton each added four
points.
The second game went into
extra points before either team
could get the two-point edge for
the win. Lake Wales finally did

Something might be gain-
ing on you.
-Satchel Paige
Use soft words and hard
arguments.
-English proverb


28-26. Harrison collected with
service points, with Desiree
Smith adding four.
Game three also went to Lake
Wales, 25-19. Smith and Carl-
ton were the service winners,
with five and four respectively.
Hardee worked its way back
for a 25-23 win in game four.
Katie Wheeler had 11 service
points, including the final three.
Lake Wales got the momen-
tum in the final game, which
has a 15-point limit, and out-
scored Hardee 15-10 for the 3-2
match victory
It was similar at home against
Teneroc last Thursday. Hardee
won the first two games, 26-24
and 25-20, but lost the last three
21-25, 19-25, 13-15.
Kendall Gough topped Har-
dee with nine points, including
one ace. Smith added six,
including the final three to win
game one. Gough also had
seven points in game two, with
Harrison adding five.
The senior had six service
points in game three, and Smith
added three, including an ace.
Carlton and Gough had four
apiece.
Carlton led in game four,
with a half dozen service points,

es last week.
They forced Lake Wales to
the full three games in the JV
format, best of three, and came
home on Thursday to sweep
Teneroc.
At Lake Wales, they lost the
opender 19-25, came back to
win 25-16 and lost the third
game 10-15. In the first game,

Dixon each had four service
points. Dixon had eight in game
two, including the last six for
the win. In game, three, it was

A half dozen TDs, four two-
point conversions and strong
defense.
It all added up to a 44-0 vic-
!ory for the Hardee Junior High
Vildcats last Tuesday at home
against Lake Placid.
This week's game was in
ike Wales at Bok Academy.
here is a road game next week
Iso, at Avon Park. Hardee
comes home Oct. 16 for a visit
from Bok, the team it plays
twice this season. Heartland
Conference play winds up with
an Oct. 23 home game against
DeSoto and an unusual Thurs-
day game Nov. I for the season
finale at Sebring.
Eighth grader Isis Garza
claimed Offensive Player of the
Game honors in last week's
game, while seventh grader
Ismael Rodriguez garnered the
Defensive Player of the Game


Greetings from Fort Green!
Sherman and I went to Val-
dosta this past Saturday to
attend the 57th class reunion
supper with friends. I must
admit, it is hard to believe it
was 57 years ago that we grad-
uated! It was a delightful week-
end, even though a hurried one.
The goldenrod are already in
full bloom, and nothing is as
pretty as a field of goldenrods.
My best friend from high
school drove down from
Gainesville, Ga., and another
special friend drove over from
Dothan, Ala. Of course, all the
others there were very special.
It is great to catch up on what is
happening with each other. So
many of ihe girls have lost their
spouses, but that seems to be
the norm. The men go first.
There's nothing like your
classmates or in the olden days
when school was fun and every-
body knew and liked everyone.
Of course, my alma mater, Val-
dosta High School, had one of
the best football teams in the
southeast. Many went on to
play college ball and people
still talk about the super coach.
Our sincere sympathy is ex-
tended to the family of Arthur
Womack. He made his final
journey early last Friday morn-
ini. His son and daughter, Art
and Jennifer, from California,
have been with him. We will all
miss Arthur. His funeral was at
Flort Green Baptist and he was
laid to rest beside his beloved
wile. Wanda, in Paynes Creek
('Cemletry.
Nancy McQuaig was telling
mie thev attended a beautiful
\\Vieding t at the beach recently
and it was little Sadie Ann's
first trip to the beach. She was
not im pressed withthe water
and was actually a little afraid
of it. That could be an advan-
;age in the.future if it stick's
\\ ith her!
Dale Chancey came home
from the Sebring hospital. He is
Ino supposed to work for some
time but it will be hard for him
to adhere to the doctor's in-
structions. He is a dedicated
worker. Earl Bargeron spent a
few days in the Lakeland hospi-
tal. He had severe stomach
pains hut they could not really
pinpoint the problem. The doc-
tors told himl he would probably
need surgery later on and possi-
bly a gallstone lodged in his
stomach that caused the pain.
He's happy to be home.
Our fifth Sunday night sing
was very good and a great
crowd was in attendance. We
had a homemade pie contest
after the sing. This is sort of like
our ice-cream and chili contest;
everyone outdoes themselves,
from the youth to adults. The
judges decided the winner was
Alice Fave Move with a deli-
cious peach pie. Kasie Powell
took second and third place. Of
course, the real winners were
the attendees, and that included
nie!
Sherman drove our motor
home down to Wal-Mart last
week to get fuel and it broke
down across one of the lanes.
Dustyn Waters came to his res-
cue and got it going, but he has
to take it to Tampa to the Alli-
son Transmission shop for a
further checkup.


nod. Garza scored three times in
his seven carries for 80 yards.
Rodriguez not only had seven
carries and a conversion run,
but also anchored the defense
with three tackles for a loss and
three fumble recoveries.
The junior Wildcats opened
with a 2-yard Garza touchdown
jaunt, with Parker Carlton get-
ting the 2-point conversion run.
Parker Carlton ran for the next
TD, a 35-yarder, with Willie
Baker getting the 2-pointer.
Garza scored the next pair of
Wildcat TDs, both 15-yarders.
On the second, Alejandro
Rodriguez caught a Baker pass
for the conversion points.
Parker Carlton scored on 30-
yard run and Jarrett Carlton fin-
ished up with a 10-yard TD run,
with Rodriguez getting the final
two-pointer.
Every player got in the game,
especially in the fifth quarter,


Our daughter-in-law, Angela
Cooper, accidentally burned
herself a couple of weeks ago
and is in the burn unit of the
Miami hospital. She had to
undergo more skin grafts as
some of the original did not
work. We really appreciate all
the prayers that went up. in her
behalf. She is the wife of Sher-
man's son, Gene.
It is remarkable how quickly
Evelyn Durrance recovered and
was able to walk after her knee
surgery.
Chrysta Chancey had a beau-
tiful horse in their pasture that
always "talked" to me when I
walked in the mornings. I had
been missing this horse, and she
told me.,she. had given it away,
but the other day two' of the
most gorgeous horses I have
ever seen were in the pasture.
One is a solid chocolate color
and the other a beautiful red. I
had never seen a chocolate-
color horse but they might be
common among horse people.
They belong to another neigh-
bor whose grass was not as
plentiful as Chrysta's pasture,
and this helped both of them!
Wes Smith is finally home
from the hospital. Kitty Oden
had a heart cath last week but
they did not find anything or
that is what Kitty said! Please
pray for these and others.
Pray for each other and re-
member to pray for the USA.

Life grants nothing to us
mortals without hard work.

Over the past four years,

defenders with good stats,
besides those by Ismael Rod-
riguez. Parker Carlton had a
half dozen tackles and Jarrett
Carlton had four, one for a loss.
Alejandro Rodriguez chipped in
with four tackles, two for a loss.
Garza, Snell, Jonatan Martinez

God has one Son without sin,
but He has no. sons without
suffering.
Suffering oftentimes brings out
talents which, in prosperous
circumstances would have lain
dormant.
John Bunyan was incarcerated
in Bedford Jail. There he wrote
Pdgrim's Progress.
Victor Hugo was exiled, Then he
wrote one of the world's greatest
novels, LesMiserables.
Robert Louis Stevenson was
confined to his bed by sickness.
Then he wrote Treasure Islandand
Dr. JekyllandlMr. Hyde.
Suffering will make you better or
bitter. Submit yourself to God, and
your suffering will make you better,

Have you ever awakened in the night with the moonlight streaming
through the window and suddenly, out of the corer of your eye, seen
something move? In the dark you are afraid, but switch on the light
and it's gone, it was just a shadow.

We are often afraid of the dark and unknown; what if we could always
have a lamp? Psalm 119:105 tells us, "Your word is a lamp to my feet
and a light to my path." With regular Bible reading, prayer, and weekly
worship, those things that frighten us will diminish as our faith and
knowledge of God's power and love increases. God can light the
shadows in our lives.

Golfers Prepare

For Districts


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Both Hardee golf teams are
winding down their season and
getting ready for district com-
petition the week of Oct. 15.
The Hardee girls will be in
the Class 1A District 16 tourna-
ment at the Preserve course out-
side Bradenton and hosted by
Bradenton Southeast on Oct.
15, beginning at 11 a.m. Teams
involved are Sarasota Booker,
Sarasota Cardinal Mooney,
Sarasota Out-of-Door Acade-
my, Bradenton St. Stephens,
DeSoto, Lake Placid, Hardee
and the host school.
The boys district event is Oct.
15, starting at 9 a.m. at the
Bradenton Country Club and
hosted by Bradenton Christian.
Hardee has the same opponents
as the girls in districts, plus an
additional pair of private
schools in Sarasota Christian
and the host school.
In the last two weeks, the
Wildcats have managed to get
three out of four matches
played. The Sept. 18 match at
The Bluffs against Desoto was
rained out.
On Sept. 20, Hardee played at
home against Fort Meade and
Lake Placid, beating both of
them. The Hardee score was
162, with Lake Placid at 182
and Fort Meade at 272, reported
Coach George Heine. Senior
Will Bennett led the way with a
37, which included one birdie.
The Sept. 25 match at The
Bluffs course was against
DeSoto and Port Charlotte and
Hardee split the difference,
defeating DeSoto but losing to
Port Charlotte. In this match
junior Eric Klein was low man
for Hardee with 41, including a
birdie, while classmate Bradley


Brewer came in at 42.
Last Thursday, Hardee went
to the Lake Wales Country Club
to play Frostproof, which won
169-178. Seniors William
Beattie and Bennett led the
Wildcats with a 31 and 42
respectively. Sophomore Justin
Davidson shot a 51 in his first-
ever official match.
The Wildcats stood at 8-3,
with the Hawkins Invitational at
Sebring on Oct. 1, a trip to play
Lake Wales on Oct. 2, a match
against DeSoto on Oct. 4 and
the season finale at Lake Placid
on Oct. 9.
Meanwhile, the Hardee girls
were also rained out on Sept.
18. On Sept. 20, they hosted
Lake Placid and Avon Park,
placing square in the middle.
Avon Park won with 240, but
Hardee was close behind at 243
and Lake Placid at 256.
Courtney Alexander led Hardee
with 53, followed by Brooke
Knight at 59, Kate Thomas 64
and Kaitlyn Shaw at 67.
The girls had a bad outing on
Sept. 25 at Avon Park, with
Frostproof winning at 214,
Avon Park at 220 and Hardee a
distant 255.
Last. Thursday, Hardee was
home against DeSoto and did
much better, winning 227-275.
Alexander shot 52, Thomas 54,
Shaw 60 and Knight 61. As
usual on Thursdays, Lacey
McClenithan did not get to play
because of conflicts with cheer-
leading.
The Lady 'Cats had a pair of
matches left before district play.
The one this week is at The
Bluffs today (Thursday) against
DeSoto, and next Tuesday's
season finale is against Sebring
at the Sun 'N Lake course.

SThe Raising of the Educational Bar
by Mary Farr, HHS Assistant Principal


Many view our public school
system as the tool which prepares
our students to be successful
participants in a literate society.
The reality is that preparing
our students to be literate in the
21st century requires a skill set
surpassing the level many of
us were exposed to during our
high school years. Keeping up
with those demands requires
schools to raise the bar for our
students sometimes creating a
whole rew 'bar' at which to aim.
Now marks a period of tran-
sition for the Florida student.
Recent legislative actions have
brought in a variety of changes
that must be addressed, from
additional test mandates to
changes in compulsory courses.
These alterations are aimed
at ensuring graduates are
adequately prepared to face the
demands oftoday's work place or
those at the post-secondary level.
The implementation of these
new graduation requirements
is phased in with an entering
cohort of 9th graders, allowing
time for schools to make any
needed accommodations.
One of the areas where the
'raising of the bar' can be seen
involves the utilization of the
state End of Course (EOC)


exams. These standardized
tests have been rolled out in
some math, science and social
studies courses. New graduation
guidelines now require students
to pass certain EOC tests in
order to receive the credit for the
completed class. For example, a
student completing Algebra I or
an equivalent course has to earn
a passing score on the Algebra I
EOC before that math credit may
be awarded. This requirement
started with last year's freshman
class and will be in place for
future ninth grade students
entering high school. Ourcurrent
2012-2013 ninth grade students
will also have the EOC passing
requirement applied to their
Geometry and Biology courses.
Another credit requirement
change is the addition of a new
online learning component.
Starting with last year's ninth
graders, all students, will have
to complete at least one course
within their 24-credit program
through online learning. At
Hardee High School, we have
already implemented the
necessary modifications in our
course offerings, ensuring our
students are able to satisfy this
graduation requirement. Students
taking the mandated Personal


Fitness course will no longer be
face-to-face with one of our PE
teachers in a classroom setting.
Instead, a computer lab has been
set up as a study hall period
where assigned students come
each day to work on their online
Personal Fitness course under
the supervision and guidance
of a lab paraprofessional.
Traditional textbooks have been
replaced with computers, and
the PE teacher communicates
,only through email and phone
calls, .a true move toward
capitalizing on the technological
skills of today's students.
Additional adjustments to
graduation requirements .will
be phased in over the next
couple of years. The Florida
Department of Education has a
website available that provides
specific details outlining these
changes by the year a student
enters the ninth grade. Parents
and students can go to http://
www.fldoe.org/bii/studentpro/
grad-require.asp and click on the
related link to view an outline
of the graduation requirements
that apply to them. To all you
curious readers, I encourage
you to go check it out to see just
how much the 'bar' has changed
from your high school years.


One of the changes to graduation requirements is the in-
corporation of an online learning course. Hardee High
has chosen to modify its Personal Fitness class to accom-
modate this change. Pictured here is student Karen Su-
arez getting assistance from lab para Maggie Santana.

New Program Inspires Kids For Their Future


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
"We may not be able to pre-
pare the future for our children,
but we can at least prepare our
children for the future," said
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
A new non-profit organiza-
tion is dedicated to helping the
youth in Hardee, Highlands,
DeSoto and Polk counties in the
same way.
From Here To There, Inc.,
was recently started as a way of
getting kids motivated to finish


school and then go on to college
or trade schools.
Founder and President Ja-
maal Johnson is a 2001 Hardee
Senior High graduate. Upon
graduation he set off to play
football at Mississippi State
University, where he saw the
positive influence he could
have on kids.
During football practice, kids
would often go watch and inter-
act with the players and tour the
school. Johnson says that
thanks to these programs, sev-


eral of those kids then ended up
as student athletes.
It then occurred to him that
these opportunities weren't
available for him while in
school in Hardee County and,
therefore, he wanted to change
that. He wants the students in
the county to have the same
opportunities as others, and
therefore want motivate
them to go to college for sports,
the atmosphere of being in col-
lege or simply to better them-
selves.


COURTESY PHOTOS
From Here To There, Inc., held a kickball and fun day on July 4 as a chance for the kids
in the community to eat, play and have fun. This was meant as a reward for the kids for
being good citizens in the community and to encourage them to read and prepare for
going back to school. Here, Trequan Holley tries to kick a homerun in the game against
the Fort Meade "Divas." Trequan is a captain in the Panther Program and maintains a
3.5 grade-point average and great attendance at school and in athletics.


The younger kids had plenty of fun on the water slide.


Also in attendance were some Hardee County Youth Football players. They competed
in the "Big Man" tug-of-war event.

Johnson says the biggest
challenge for the organization
will be to get the youth back
outside. He doesn't want the
Internet, video games and tele-
vision to monopolize their time.
Today's kids "use the negatives
they learn from technology to
try and succeed," he says.
He wants to help raise presi-
dents, lawyers, congressmen,
business leaders, politicians,
artists, entertainers and much
more.
The program, also known as
the Panther Program although it
is in no way affiliated with the
South Florida State College
Panthers, focuses on three areas
education, athletics and com-
munity service.
This free program helps to
provide more information on
various careers students may
one day choose as their own. It
looks into 48 different career
majors, including business,
culinary, fashion, criminal jus-
tice and many more.
t also offers tutoring, college
touring trips, help in enrolling
in summer academic or summer
sports programs, and more. The
program will organize 12 differ-
ent sports throughout the year,
as well as doing community
service.
The purpose of the Panther
Program is to "teach the chil-
dren discipline and structure
through education and activi-
ties," says Johnson. By doing
this he ultimately wants to
reduce the number of high-
school dropouts and teenage
pregnancies.
Johnson wants to become a
role model for the kids, and
that's why he has decided to
further his education by going
back to school and getting his
master's in political science,
pre-law. This comes after he
graduated from GUTI-The
Premier Beauty & Wellness
Academy last February.
He wants the kids to see him
keep going in his education, and
hopes that this will encourage
them to continue as well.
This program is for first
through 12th graders who are
currently enrolled in public, pri-
vate or home school who are
interested in pursuing a further
education after high school.
Volunteers and sponsors to
tutor and coach the kids are still
needed. In order to become a
yai W ou ngM fiil out a
registration forrii and abide by
the rules and standards of the
program.
Some of those rules include
the banning of smoking or the
use of tobacco on any of lhe
program's properties. The use
or possession of an illegal
chemicals or alcohol is also
prohibited on any property,
vehicles or sponsored program.
For certain positions, a back-
ground investigation will be
conducted.
To pick up a volunteer or stu-
dent registration form, go to the
YMCA in Wauchula, 'North
Central Heights Hbusing
Community in AVon Park, the
Housing Authority in Arcadia
or the Fort Meade Community
Center.
The program has begun, and
you can still sign up your chil-
dren to get help with homework
or help them brighten their
futures From Here To There.


Week Ending: September 30, 2012
Weather Summary: According to the Florida Automated
Weather Network (FAWN) nearly all of the State had some rainfall
compared to 46 percent of the State under drought condition last
year. Except for Dover and MacClenny, there were 27 stations with
less than an inch of rain and the remainder had between one to two
inches of rain with Jay at 2.3 inches. Water levels remain below
normal in some areas around Immokalee and Corkscrew in Collier
County. Minimum temperatures ranged from 51 degrees in
Marianna to 74 degrees in Fort Lauderdale, while the maximum
temperatures ranged from 86 degrees in Carrabelle to 93 degrees in
Bronson.

Field Crops: Pecans were beginning to fall with harvest ex-
pected in the next few weeks in Washington County. Some grow-
ers in Jackson and Escambia counties reported superior yields for
peanuts. In Columbia County, some peanut fields have been lost
due to flooding. The peanut condition was rated 1 percent very
poor, 1 percent poor, 23 percent fair, 53 percent good, and 22 per-
cent excellent. Cotton defoliation has started in Escambia County.
In Jackson County, the cotton crop has been affected adversely due
to fungal disease caused by extended periods of wet weather.
Sugarcane planting began in south Florida.

Fruits & Vegetables: A mostly hot, dry week allowed veg-
etable growers to catch up on land preparation and planting.
Tomato harvest began in Gadsden County. Growers in Hillsbor-
ough County started planting strawberries. Okra, cucumbers, and
tomatoes were being marketed.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the condition of pasture
ranged from very poor to excellent with most good. Flooding and
drought limited pasture condition. Pasture condition is declining
seasonally. The cattle condition ranged from very poor to excellent
with most in good condition. In the Panhandle, the pasture and cat-
tle conditions were very poor to excellent. Winteroforage was being


Sports Update
SBy Joan Seaman


The Hardee Wildcats picked the wrong time to be seen on tele-
vision as one of the highlights of the game'of the week, in their 37-
0 loss at Mulberry.
This season, it's hard to tell which Wildcat team will show up,
as the 'Cats alternate losses and wins. This week is an OPEN date,
dictated by the Florida High School Athletic Association, which
says which weeks are district games.
Hardee is the odd-man-out this week in the five-team district,
which includes Palmetto, Desoto, Bradenton Bayshore and
Bradenton Southeast. Hardee is 1-0 in the district after winning
over Bayshore. The 'Cats play Palmetto at home on Oct. 19,
Southeast on Oct. 26 on the road, and Desoto on Bulldog turf on
Nov. 2.
The Wildcats are in a rebuilding phrase, a frequently used state-
ment, but one which aptly describes the 2012 'Cats, which lost 18
seniors to graduation, including an experienced quarterback,
receivers, runners and offensive line, as well as key defenders. This
year's team features only seven seniors, 19 juniors of which sever-
al were on the JV team last year. There are also eight sophs and a
pair of freshmen.

The junior varsity Wildcats are at 3-1 midway through the
eight-game season. This week's game is at home tonight
(Thursday) against Sebring, always a tough matchup. The varsity
lost to Sebring this year.

The junior high Wildcats are also battling the weather and com-
ing out on top. They won 44-0 last week and added four more TDs
in the fifth quarter in which the underclassmen and inexperienced
players take the field. Coach Mark Carlton has a raft of experi-
enced assistants in West Palmer, Jason Clark, Gerry Lindsey, John
Sharp and Derren Bryan.

In Pop Warner football, Hardee teams won in three divisions
last weekend, with the Mitey Mite, Junior Pee Wee and Pee Wee
teams also winning over the Fishhawks. The Junior Midgets had a
tough loss.

Speaking of junior high, the softball girls drew a split last week,
including their first loss of the season, to rival DeSoto. The girls are
at 3-1 and play generally on Mondays and Thursdays.

Golfers are winding down, the boys at 8-3 and girls at 4-6 at the
end of last week's matches. Both teams will be in District 16 tour-
nament play on Oct. 15 at Bradenton courses, the girls at The
Preserve and the boys at Bradenton Country Club. District play is
always an uphill battle as the local teams face a half dozen "golf
academies," private schools in which students play golf for hours
daily.

The volleyball teams are getting better and better, forcing oppo-
nents into the full limit of games, best of five for varsity and best
of three for JV. Hardee is peaking just as it enters district matches
this week and next and will be in playoffs in late October.

In swimming, big congratulations are due for senior Wyatt
Kofke as he reset the school record in the 100 backstroke, shaving
nearly four seconds off the record set by Calvin Bates 15 years ago,
and dropping it below the one-minute mark to 59.46.

In boxing, Hardee senior Ruben Ozuna, who doubles as a cross
country runner chasing Christian Moralez for the team lead, also
took at second-round KO in a recent bout in St. Pe,;sburg. The 17-
\ear-old Ozuna fought at 144 pods agairt,_- 27-yeatr-6ld
Chrin'opher Wagner.
Ozuna was also supposed to travel to Philadelphia to take part
in the Lucian Blackwell tournament where he would also get a
good look by Golden Boy productions, which could sponsor his as
a pro in the near future.
His cross country running keeps him in shape with stamina and
endurance to go the distance in 10-rounders if that is his choice.

Also in running news, ll-year-old Zack Durastanti has quali-
fied for the IronKids national championships in Des Moines, Iowa
in the spring. Younger brother Zander missed nationals by 22 sec-
onds.

planted. Fall pasture decline has begun with shorter days and cool-
er nights. Cattle condition began to decline as the quality of pasture
condition degraded. In the northern areas, the pasture and cattle
conditions were fair to excellent with most in good condition. In
the central areas, the pasture and cattle conditions ranged from
poor to excellent, with most in good condition. Water level was
lower but some pasture had standing water. Pasture grass started to
lose protein. In the southwestern areas, the pasture and cattle were
in poor to excellent condition. Most cattle were in good condition.
A hot, dry week allowed standing water in pastures to recede in
some areas. Growth of pasture grass started to slow down due to
shorter daylight hours.

Citrus: Daily high temperatures were in the upper 80s to low
90s across the citrus region. All but one of the FAWN stations in
the citrus growing region recorded some precipitation this week,
with Ona receiving the most at 2.26 inches. Six stations received
more than an inch. Dover recorded no rainfall. The Brooksville sta-
tion was decommissioned and Dade City was added to the FAWN
network. The citrus region remained entirely drought free per the
U.S. Drought Monitor; last updated September 25, 2012. Harvest
of Fallglo tangerines has begun. Application of fall miticide and
herbicide, young tree care, harvest preparations for Navels and
grapefruit, and general grove maintenance were the primary grove
activities.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, what a football weekend we just experi-
enced! While the Gators took a week off to prepare for LSU, the
rest of college football watched many points being scored across
many conferences. West Virginia put another 70 points on the
board against Baylor but gave up 63 while amassing 807 total yards
of offense. Georgia beat Tennessee 51-44 for a rare scoring fest for
an SEC game. Texas pulled out abig win at Oklahoma St. 40-36 in
the closing minute.
If you think this week was great, just wait until next weekend.
LSU at Florida! West Virginia at Texas! Georgia at South Carolina
These are just a few of the great matchups not to miss for the first
weekend of October.
Alabama beat Ole Miss 33-13 at home this past Saturday.
Texas beat Ole Miss 66-31 at Oxford. Does this make the Long-
horns jump Alabama in the polls? Just asking.
West Virginia quarterback Geno Smith made a statement for
the Heisman Trophy against Baylor. He completed 45 of 51 passes
for,656 yards and 8 touchdowns and has not thrown an interception
all season. Geno also ran for 31 yards on 5 carries, picking up first
downs when needed. Clearly, it was the best performance of the
day in college football. On a s. .ote, there were 11 West Virginia
basketball games last year that didn't have as many points as the
Baylor football game this weekend!
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers fell to 1-3 with a 24-22 loss at
home to the Washington Redskins. Still, the team is showing signs
of turning it around under Greg Schiano. Josh Freeman did pass for
299 yards and the ground game looked better this week. The Bucs
are off this week and host Kansas City the following weekend.
It is always interesting to check out the NCAA Statistics when
analyzing a team. The Big 12 has the top 3 offensive teams in col-
lege football Oklahoma St., Baylor and West Virginia. It also has
the'top defensive team in Texas Tech. TCU ranks 7th in defense. It
will be fun to watch how the stats change when those teams meet.
FSU ranks 3rd defensively while the Gators are 17th in the nation.
Now let's look at this week's Bill O" Fare ...
I. LSU at Florida With extra time to watch LSU film, get ,
rested and healed and LSU has not been impressive the past two
weeks, Florida will take the Tigers out in the Swamp. Jeff Driskel
has a big day and the Gators move up. Florida 30 LSU 24.
2. West Virginia at Texas Geno Smith can widen the gap in
his Heisman Campaign with a win in Austin. It is doubtful he will
shave another day with 8 touchdown passes and 656 yards passing
but a win on Prime Time would help. So would a better defensive
effort by the Mountaineers. There are too many freshmen on
defense. West Virginia 38 Texas 35.
3. Arkansas at Auburn Two teams desperate for a win meet
on the Plains of Auburn. It should be a close game with Auburn g-t-
ting a win. Auburn 27 Arkansas 24.
4. Kansas at Kansas St. Charlie Weiss takes his Jayhawks
to Manhattan to face the KSU Wildcats. It won't be pretty. KSU
could be the best of the Big 12. Collin Klein is a big QB that many
have compared to Tim Tebow. KSU 59 Kansas 17.
5. Mississippi St. at Kentucky Mildcats played a little bet-
ter this week but even at home they will fall to the Bulldogs from
Starkville. MSU is 4-0 and some think the Bulldogs could be a
spoiler in the SEC West. Mississippi St. 36 UK 17.
6. Tulsa at Marshall Herd outplayed Purdue in three quar-
ters but gave up 21 points off turnovers in the second quarter. It is
Homecoming and the Herd rarely loses at home. It will be another
shootout but Marshall.QB Rakeem Cato still leads the nation in
passing. The Herd also ranks 6th in the nation in total offense.
Marshall 48 Tulsa 41.
7. Georgia at South Carolina Two Top 10 teams from the
SEC square off in Columbia. Look for a shootout as both teams can
score points at will. Georgia 41 South Carolina 38.
8. Texas A&M at Ole. Miss Aggies have scored a lot of
points in 2012 against all but Florida. The SEC teams will cut down
on their output btit still ihey will score enough for a victory. The
young QB for the Aggies, Johnny Manziel, is exciting and getting
better. He'ranks 6th in the nation passing as a sophomore. Texas
A&M 31 Ole Miss 21.
9. Vanderbilt at Missouri Tigers have not done well against
their new SEC teams in 2012. This should be their first SEC win.
Missouri 33 Vanderbilt 20..
10. Miami at Notre Dame "Convicts versus Catholics"
makes another appearance although probably not as profound as
the last time. Both teams have fallen since that original meeting.
Sure, Notre Dame is ranked but they have played nobody of sig-
nificance yet. They'do play better defense and are tough at home.
Notre Dame 27 Miami 17.
11. FSU at North Carolina St. Could FSU be vulnerable on
the road? The Wolfpack is 3-2 while playing Tennessee and Miami
tough in losing. FSU 34 NCSU 23.
12. Nebraska at Ohio St. Both teams have good records but


have not beat any team of significance in 2012. Buckeyes are not
eligible for the title or to go to a bowl game either. Huskers do have
those to play for and must win to keep pace with Northwestern.
Nebraska 34 Ohio St. 27
13. Wake Forest at Maryland Fear the Turtle! The Terps do
have a solid defense. Maryland is playing its first ACC game. The
Tarps could be a factor in the conference. Maryland 38 Wake 10.
14. Oklahoma at Texas Tech Red Raiders rank number one
in defense nationally this season. That has taken them to a 4-0
record. Oklahoma is too much for them this week and West
Virginia visits the following week. Look for that defense status to
drop. Oklahoma 41 Texas Tech 17.
15. Iowa St. at TCU Solid matchup with TCU playing just
their second game in the Big 12. Horned Frogs are 4-0 and will win
a close one over 3-1 Cyclones. TCU 27 Iowa St. 25.
16. USF at Temple Must-win game for USF if they have
any hopes of a Big East Title. Even then, the Bulls will need help
after losing to Rutgers. USF 31 Temple 21.
17. East Carolina at UCF Knights have lost to Missouri
and Ohio St. They are not eligible to win CUSA Title or go to a
Bowl. The Pirates sit at 2-0 in CUSA East. UCF 34 ECU 17.
18. Boise St. at Southern Miss USM has not won a game
in 2012. They have played better recently. Can you say UPSET?
It's a reach but why not? USM 23 Boise St. 20.
19. Miami at Cincinnati Bengals in a close one. Bengals 31
Dolphins 27.
20. Chicago at Jacksonville Bears get away with a win.
Chicago 34 Jags 21.

Amendment 10 "ln/(i,'f/'c I'rlh ri\ I/

but less than S50.000; and allows countics it \ i., .ti,i;

Amendment II Additional S'cnior l:.\c'inipioi:
Allows counties to provide an additional homestead tax
exemption to owners who have maintained permanent resi-
dency on their property for not less than 25 years, who are
65 years or older, and who have a household income
defined by law.

Explanation Amendment 2
The Veterans Property Tax Discount Amendment 2 repre-
sents only a slight change to our current Constitution. Voters had
previously approved a property tax discount for veterans with com-
bat-related disabilities who were Florida residents at the time they
entered the service. If a veteran is injured in a combat-related inci-
dent and is disabled, then the percentage of their disability is the
percentage of their property tax discount.
For instance, if a veteran is disabled by 50 percent, then the
veteran would receive a 50 percent discount from the taxes owed
on his or her property. Taxes that would normally be $500 would
be reduced to $250.
The only difference in our current Constitution and this pro-
posed amendment is that if the veterans are currently Florida resi-
dents, it is no longer required that they were a Florida resident
when they entered the service.

Explanation Presentation Today
Over the next few weeks we will provide more specific infor-
mation relating to the remainder of the property tax amendments so
you can make informed decisions when you cast your vote in
November.
Today (Thursday), we will also make a presentation to the
Board of County Commissioners and will provide details of each
amendment.

Amendment 4. You can also log on to our website at www.qpub-
