lar names to most. But, 'if you
own a TV, the chances are
you've probably seen one or
more of these retired actors
before. And it just so happens
that they have been living in
Hardee County.
Ripley was in the movie
"Ace Ventura;" Bubbles ap-
peared in several locations
alongside Michael Jackson;
Barn Barn stared in the soap
opera "Passions" on NBC; and
Popi was in "Every Which Way
But Loose," which starred Clint
Eastwood.
These retired actors also hap-

chimpanzees and orangutans
living at the Center for. Great
Apes right here in Wauchula.
Although many of the apes at
the center have retired from the
entertainment industry, several
of them have recently taken part
in a film that will bring aware-
ness to the tragedies of apes liv-
ing in the wild.
A documentary film crew
from Australia spent the past'
year filming orangutans, goril-
las, chimpanzees and bonobos
in their natural habitats, many
of which are rapidly disappear-
ing.
They also traveled to rescue
centers in Indonesian Borneo,

It seems everyone in Hardee County took part in the Haloween festivities this year! Here 17-year-old orangutan Louie
was ready to go trick-or-treating, but he probably should have carved out his own pumpkin if he wanted any sweets.
Louie is one of 42 apes living at the Center for Great Apes who were spotted greatly enjoying his Halloween surprise.


Fertilizer Plant


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two reviews today (Thurs-
day) will 'give the public and
commission first looks at the
proposed fertilizer plant in west
central Hardee County.
Both will be held in the
Hardee County Commission
chambers, Room 102, Court-
house Annex I, 412 W. Orange
St., Wauchula.
The first will be at 8:35 a.m.
during the bi-weekly commis-
sion meeting, when the board
will be asked to approve a reso-
lution, in effect an interlocal
agreement with the Florida
Department of Finance Corp.
for use of its $150 million tax-
exempt bonds BioNitrogen
Corp. is being awarded to build


'the environmentally friendly
fertilizer production plant.
The county has no connection
to the sale of bonds which will
be handled by BB&T Capital
Market in Miama as bond
placement agent. The law
requires the county only to pro-
vide a resolution of support for
the project and tax-exempt
bonds for it.
The second event will be the
Planning & Zoning Board
meeting at 6 p.m. at which a
Major Special Excecption and
site concept plan for the bio-
mass-fed urea fertilizer opera-
tions plant will be considered
for recommendation to the
commission at its next regular
meeting the evening of Nov. 15.
The proposal is to use 40


Hearings.,
acres north of Vandolah Road,
along CR 663 North, most often
called Ona-Fort Green Road,
for a plant for domestically pro-
duced fertilizer from yard
debris and agricultural material
called biomass.
The biomass will include
trees, clippings, branches and
wood chips that people would
normally take to the local land-
fill or burn. There will be no
solid waste (garbage) used in
the plant, which is not equipped
for that.
The material for the plant will
come from tree surgeons, land-
clearing for mining, construc-
tion and. landscaping, from golf
courses, farming and groving,
where about 10 percent of trees
are removed and replaced each

be brought to the Vandolahtarea
plant and be ground or pel-
letized before proceeding to a
closed-loop gasification system
where it is turned into urea fer-
tilizer that is 46 percent nitro-

The end product will be
resold to local growers or dis-
tributed by rail to adjacent
states such as Georgia or

Investigated
By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
An internal investigation of a
local school official is still
pending.
The investigation could result
in transfer or termination for
Stuart Durastanti, 30, vice prin-
cipal of Bowling Green Elem-
entary School, who could be
facing misdemeanor charges in
the theft of campaign signs of
Oct. 8.
The pending charges are the
result of an incident caught on
video at 9:37 that night on the'
Joe Jones grove property across
from the elementary school and
adjacent to a strip of land that is
used by school personnel for a
parking lot.
To avoid a conflict with the
teacher parking, Jones had
asked those placing campaign
signs on his property to put
them well back from the prop-
erty line and parking lot.

The long-awaited general election will be Tuesday, with early
voting since Oct. 27. Hardee has 12 voting precincts. It is a long
ballot.
st County races include three County Commission seats and the
n superintendent of schools job.
f The U.S. presidential. race is going to be close, with Florida
0 one of the swing states. The Wauchula Kiwanis Club in a straw poll
h Tuesday voted 19 for Mitt Romney, 1 for Bush and 3 no-votes. I
cast a Romney vote and expect him to win in conservative-voting
g Hardee over President Barack Obama, who very well may win re-
rn election nationally. Many people are concerned over our growing
national debt.

U.S. representative.
( For state senator I favor Bill Galvano (R) over Paula House

Y There are three Florida Supreme Court justices and three
s District Court of Appeals judges up for retention with a yes or no
vote. .
Bill Sites and Christine Thornhill are in a close race for 10th
Judicial Circuit Court Judges., Both are good candidates.
S There are 12 state constitutional amendments on the ballot...
The Florida Republican Party recommends their passage. The Polk
County Voters League recommends their defeat. All are self-
explanatory.
* State Rep. Ben Albritton of Hardee wins reelection without
opposition. He recommends' approval of the constitutional amend-
ments and to study the judges' past decisions carefully.
Congratulations to all the candidates for running and partici-
pating in the democratic process.
In the last 15 years the local Republican Party'has been very
active in Hardee County with vqter registration while the
Democratic Party slept. However, the local DemocraticParty this
past year under the leadership of Ernie Ziglar is wide awake and
working hard.
Hardee'Supervisor of Elections Jeff Ussery said Tuesday that
Hardee has 6,112 Democrats, 4,339 Republicans and 1,416 no-
S party. I was a lifelong Democrat but changed to no-party a few
weeks ago. There has been an increase in GOP and no-party regis-
trations in recent years.
Ussery said at mid-afternoon Tuesday Hardee had 1,116 early
voters and over 500 absentee ballots turned in.'

Gary Jones Jr. of Bowling Green is thankful for Caring People

overcome a drug addiction and now he is helping others there. He
is studying to be a nurse.
Y He came to CPRC in December 2011. The staff and fellow r
Smen and women with life-controlling problems "loved me back to
life. They focus on God, self and others."
9 Jones grew up on. a ranch in northeastern Hardee County, but
Sgot in trouble when he came to town.

understand God. Classes taught by Mark Parker. and his father
Johnny Parker help them understand the disease of addiction.

things ,tfiai .happened in 0bur lives-:. Oc' thar first !step hat been
taken we are on the road to recovery. We find out we are not alone
s anymore. God puts people together here and the most unlikely per-
d son you find is the person you can relate to. I have the privilege of
watching people and families come back to life."
t Jones also credited Kay Paris, Betty, Israel, Mary Jones, Tippy
SGilliard, and the entire Parker family "for their dedication to help-
S ing us on our journey." Jones spoke recently to the Wauchula
Kiwanis Club. CPRC is located in Bowling Green.
Dr. Mark Sevigny, a local eye doctor, told the Wauchula Lions
n Club recently he is seeing case of diabetic retinopathy in some
teenagers and young adults in their 20s. He is very concerned at the
high rate of diabetes in Hardee County and the threat to people's
Vision from diabetes.
S The Mayo Clinic defines diabetic retinopathy: "The back part
of your eye-- called the retina is nourished by many tiny'blood
vessels. These are among the first blood vessels damaged by high
blood glucose. High blood pressure also contributes to this; dam-
Sage, which happens' slowly over years.
a "The potential risk with diabeticretinopathy is loss of sight or
Seven blindness if the retina becomes detached and isn't treated
promptly. Reducing the risk or slowing progression of diabetic
retinopathy is best done with careful blood glucose control and
blood pressure control."
S Dr. Sevigny urges residents to eat a healthy diet and exercise
regularly.' .
S The current AARP Magazine calls diabetes a "lifestyle dis-
ease" 'and recommends a healthy diet, exercise, and controlling
your blood pressure, weight and cholesterol.

In addition the AARP article, written by Holly St. Lifer, says
Research for preventing or combatting diabetes suggests:
1. Eat breakfast every day.
2. Get more sleep.
3. Swap out bologna for broccoli. Eat a lot of fruits and veg-
S etables'evdry day.
.4. Throw away your cigarettes.
5, Get moving. Regular aerobic exercise helps prevent dia-
betes in multiple ways. Walking is the easiest wayto get started.
Take 10,000 steps a day, or better yet, 13,500 steps. Lots of walk-
ing reduces the risk by 29 percent. Lifting weights 150 minutes a
week reduces by 34 percent the risk of diabetes compared with
those who did no weight training.


$3.5 million to obtain public records ot emails? That was the
price quoted by Port St. Lucie attorney Rob Orr to four city police
officers and' two civilian employees who were terminated from
their positions. They, filed suit against the city of Fort Pierce and its
city manager, claiming they were deiiied access to public records,
'reported the Fort Pierce Tribune and the Brechner Report.
The report is published by the Brechner Center for Freedom of
Information and University of Florida College of Journalism and
Communications. The suit claims wrongful termination violating
the former employees' due process rights under the 14th
Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and alleges violations of the
city charter and Florida Sunshine Law.

The Independent Florida Alligator, a student-run newspaper
founded in 1906 and independent from the university since 1973,
has filed suit against UF to prevent removal of over 20 of its orange


tracks and replace them with black modular units owned by UF that
would cost a monthly fee and allow UF to decide where the free
newspaper is distributed on campus, reports the Associated Press,

ney Tom Julin) and your clients that the University will not regu-
a, or attempt by any means to regulate, the viewpoints expressed
Sin the Alligator." UF has also agreed to waive the fees and any
licensing agreements. The regulation was adopted in 2009 but has:

7 Swimmers Go To Regionals


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Six boys and one girl are
assured of a trip to the Class 1 A
regional meet on Saturday.
Seniors Wyatt Kofke, Will
Crawford and Kaleb Rickett,
junior Kevin Borjas and sophs
Cody Spencer, Keifer Kedzor
and Caitlin Dufresne qualified
in the District 5 meet in Winter
Haven last week.
Some of those in the various
relays may also get to advance
but await results from all the
districts in Region 5. The reg-
ionals are at the Indian River
State College and hosted by
John Carroll High of Fort
Pierce. Hardee girls placed
sixth overall of nine teams in
the districts, while the boys
were seventh of 10 teams.
Hopefully, at least some of
the. seven regional qualifiers
may go on to the Class 1A state
championships at the Central
Florida YMCA Aquatic Center
inOrlando on Nov. 10, which is
hosted by Dr. Phillips High.
Kofke, who placed third in two
events, and Spencer and
Crawford, who had fifth-place
finishes, are most likely to
advance.
Besides the swimmers named
above, other Hardee athletes in
the top 16 in district competi-
tion were senior Justin Rickett,
juniors Emily Rhodes, Megan
Hartman and Cleston Sanders,
sophs Haley Edenfield and
Alex Johnson, and freshman
Becca Albritton. Others also
participating were senior
Andrew Reyna,
"I am so proud of every one
of our swimmers. They repre-
sented Hardee County well,"
said Head Coach Jan Brutus,
who noted that Donna Dufresne
and Tami Rhodes were ex-
tremely help in feeding swim-
mers between the morning/-
afternoon preliminaries and
evening finals. "As we all
know, food is important for a
swimmer's success," said
Brutus.


BOYS
In the 200 medley relay,
Hardee boys placed second in
the preliminaries with Kofke,
Spencer, Borjas and Crawford,
but disqualified in the finals.
Kofke came back to third in
both the preliminaries and
finals in the 200 freestyle.
Kedzior was 12 and Sanders
13th in the finals of the 200
Individual Medley (IM), while
they wer 12th and 14th in the
preliminaries.
Next up was Spencer, fifth in
both the finals and preliminar-
ies of the 50 freestyle, while
Borjas was seventh in the pre-
liminaries and eighth in the
finals.
In the 100 butterfly, it was
Crawford moving from seventh
in the preliminaries to eighth in
the finals. Spencer was eighth
in both the prelims and finals of
the 100 freestyle, with Borjas
moving from 13th in the pre-
lims to 12th in the finals.
Crawford was sixth in the
finals and prelims for the 500
free, with Kedzior sixth in the
prelims and seventh in the
finals. Both will advance. In the
200 free relay, Kaleb Rickett,
Sanders, Kedzior and senior
Andrew Reyna were sixth in the
prelims and seventh in the

SOMETIMES IT GETS CRAZY AROUND HERE!


Being a Commissioner is a lot like raising children:

* A decision favors some but the next time may displease them and favor others.
* You make decisions based on what will best affect them tomorrow as well as today.
* It's a thankless responsibility with many headaches, but actually the most rewarding.
* You stay up nights thinking of ways to protect then and give them a better quality of life.
* You sometimes wonder why you ever ,wanted this responsibility and then you look at what
has been accomplished for them, and then you know why!


Thank you Hardee County for allowing me to be your Commissioner
and for trusting me withyour families' future. We still have a lot of
work to do and I am committed to continue the task.

Hardee "Felon Sweep" Catches 15


Hardee County Sheriff Arnold
Lanier is proud to announce that
the recent Florida Sheriffs Task
Force netted nearly 12,000
felony arrests.
The Florida Sheriff's Associ-
ation (FSA) last announced last
-''' .., that a three-week
operation of the Florida Sheriffs
Task Force (FSTF) resulted in
11,875 felons being removed
from the streets.
The Hardee County Sheriff's
Office apprehended 15 felons
during the Operation "Felon
Sweep." Operation Felon
Sweep, which combined the
strengths of 43 Sheriffs' Offices
from around the state from Sept.
28 through Oct. 22 and focused
on removing violent felons and
felons with outstanding war-
rants off the streets.
This was a concentrated effort
that included targeted enforce-
ment activities as well as adding
extra resources to highlight the
role sheriffs and their teams play
in crime reduction.
Operation Felon Sweep was
an aggressive initiative that
included proactive enforcement
efforts to locate elusive felons,
enhance law enforcement pres-
ence in certain higher crime
areas, provide additional patrols
and resources to combat violent
crime, and one of the most com-


prehensive and intense efforts
to check the whereabouts and
activities of sexual predators
and offenders across the state.
"When the safety of Florida's
citizens is threatened, our sher-
iffs have developed the re-
sources to act swiftly and strate-
gically to address the issue at
hand," said Polk County Sheriff
Grady Judd, Florida Sheriffs
Task Force Chair. "FSA is
proud of this sweep and the
many other successes resulting
from great work by the Florida
Sheriffs Task Force."
The, Sheriffs of the State of
Florida and their deputies work
each day to combat threats to
the safety of our citizenry and
protect their quality of life.
Operation Felon Sweep focused
primarily on violent felons with
outstanding warrants and sexual
offenders and predators from
our communities. Past initia-
tives that have targeted cyber
sexual predators, prescription
drug abusers and "deadbeat
dads," resulted in arrests
statewide.
"Felony crimes are consid-
ered most dangerous, and the
Florida Sheriffs Association is,
proud to lead this initiative to
get the most serious criminals
off the streets," said Highlands
County Sheriff Susan Benton,


FSA President. "The Florida
Sheriffs Task Force will contin-
ue to work tirelessly to make
Florida one of the safest states
in the country."
The Florida Sheriffs Task
Force pools resources from the
67 Sheriffs' Offices to address
specific areas of concern. The
Florida Sheriffs Task Force also
is the point of contact for
statewide initiatives, including


i


helping to staff the State of
Emergency Operations Center
and coordinating Sheriffs'
offices responses to storm-rav-
aged communities during hurri-
canes and other disasters.

_______ SINS
Continued From 1A


Among those placing signs
there was Richard "Dick"
Daggett, Democratic candidate
for superintendent of schools,
and an opponent of Durastanti's
father, current superintendent
and Republican candidate for
re-election to that position.
When Jones, a former School
Board member, found Daggett
signs destroyed in his grove and
thefts continued, he and Dag-
gett both placed cameras in the
grove on Oct. 6 to catch whoev-
er was stealing signs.
The Jones video did not get


clear pictures, but the Daggett
camera did, clearly showing
someone walking up and pul-
ling up two Daggett signs and
carrying them off.
The video was so clear
Bowling Green police could
identify the suspect as one of
the local officials (Stuart
Durastanti is presently vice
chairman of the Bowling Green
City Commission). To avoid
any possible perception of con-
flict, it turned the investigation
over to the Florida Department


A good conversationalist is not one who remembers
what was said but says what someone wants to remem-
ber.

The great gift of conversation lies less in displaying it
ourselves than in drawing it obut of others.


of Law Enforcement, which has
been proceeding with the inves-
tigation.
That also launched the inter-
nal investigation by personnel
department head George Kelly,
who said Tuesday he could not
comment on it as the investiga-
tion is not complete as all the
facts are'not in. -
An investigation could also
be handled by the Professional
Practices Service, the investiga-
tory arm of the State Depart-
ment of Education. That unit
would become actively
involved should charges, result
from the FDLE and internal
investigations.
The vice principal could lose
his credentials for violation of
the state professional code of
ethics in Florida Statutes
Chapter 235 concerning good
citizenship and society respon-
sibility, including maintaining
behavior of value, integrity and
reputation in the community.
His ability to serve as an
elected official may also be in
jeopardy if he is charged, even
with misdemeanors of trespass
and petit theft. Gov. Rick Scott
removed Wauchula commis-
sioners charged with misde-
meanor violations, following
Florida Statute Section 112.51
(5) which instills that responsi-
bility upon the governor.


We the Democratic Party of Hardee County,
are proud to announce the forming of The
Hardee Democratic Womens Club of Fl. Our
Directors are in place. Our next meeting will
be at the Panda, Nov. 17th. Guest speaker
will be the next Gubernatorial candidate to
run against Rick Scott.

Democrats are building upon the historic
grassroots organization we built in Fl in
2008, including our Organizing For America
offices in every corner of the state. We are on
track to keep Fl. Blue Nov. 6th.

FRIDAY
No one can be loyal to two
masters. He is bound to hate
one and love the other, or
support one and despise the
other. You cannot serve God
and the power of money at
the same time.
Matthew 6:24 (PME)
SATURD
Say there! Is anyone thirsty?
Come and drink (eternally)
- even if you have no
money. ... Why spend your
money on foodstuffs that
don't give you strength?
Why pay for groceries that
don't do you any good?
Listen, and I'll tell you where
to get the good food that fat-
tens up the soul.
Isaiah 55:1a,2 (TLB)
SUNDAY
Cast all your anxieties on
God, for He cares about
you. Be sober, be watchful.
Your adversary, the devil,
prowls around like a roaring
lion, seeking someone to
devour.
I Peter 5:7-9 (RSV)
MONDAY
Whoever loves money will
never have enough money.
Whoever loves wealth will
not be satisfied with it. This
is useless. ... People come
into this world with nothing,
and when they die, they
leave with nothing.
Ecclesiastes 5:10,15 (NCVo
TUESDAY
Those who want to be rich
fall into temptation and
snares and many foolish,
harmful desires which
plunge men into ruin and
perdition.
l.-Timothy 6:10 (NEB)
WEDNESDAY
It is useless to work so hard
from early morning until late
at night, anxiously working
for food to eat, for God gives
rest to His loved ones.

Greetings from Fort Green!
V". cre part of that mass
exodus from the state of Florida
who think they need to go to
North Georgia or North Caro-
lina to see the leaves, and they
were pretty! The dog fennels
were blooming in South Geor-
gia when we were on our way
home, and all us old "timmers"
in Georgia always said that
meant six weeks until frost.
Also, there are more acorns this
year than I have seen in many a
,year, so I am afraid we are in for
a cold winter and with the
orange prices still fairly good,
that is bad news for all the .'
rus people.
Sherman and I went to Hia-
wassee, Ga. From there we
went into North Carolina for
crafts shows and just to marvel
at the leaves and mountains! It
is always pretty and the craft
shows are very enjoyable.
Earl and Mary Bargeron
joined us in Georgia and then
on the way home Tom and
Sharon Lynn met us in Stephen
Foster State Park and we six
went to Waldo for a gospel sing.
John and Essie Deer arrived on
Thursday for the sing. The fun
thing about camping is cooking
outdoors and the fellowship of
friends.
While in Georgia, I called
Evelyn Thomas Cornwell, who
used to live here. Doris Thorn-
ton, Brenda Braxton and grahd-
son Gunter were at their moun-
tain home, which is next door to
Evelyn, so we all enjoyed going
to supper at a local restaurant.
Doris had been sick when we
left home, but has a pacemaker
now and is better. Brenda's
grandson is very well-behaved.

Charles and Lynda Abbott met
Sherman and me for the sing at
the Hiawassee State Fair. The
best group singing was the
Florida Boys, and in Waldo, I
thought Karen Peck and New
River were the best.
Speaking of music, this Sun-
day night, Gulf State Quartet,
David Spencer's group and oth-
ers will be singing at Fort Green
Baptist. This begins at 6 p.m.,
and a love offering will be
accepted to benefit the needy at
Thanksgiving anid Christmas.
Come out for a good night of
singing.
Dennis, Beth and Jimmy
Sasser were Georgia visitors for
Jim Sasser's birthday. Jim was
expecting these but his big sur-
prise, and I guess the icing on
the cake, was that granddaugh-
ter Randi was able to join them.
They all had a good time,
enjoying the many festivals and
all attending church together on
Sunday.
There is so much that goes on
back home when you are out, of
town and you regret that you
are not here to "help." Our sin-
cere sympathy is extended to
the family of Jerald Abbott. He
will really be missed. He lived
in Fort Green for many a year.
The fall festival at Fort Green
was well-aftended and everyone
had a good time. To end the
night the youth had a hayride.
Norma Alejandro won two
cakes on the cakewalk. Mama
Faye said they did not need
three cakes, as Randy had won
one, so Norma gave away her
two. Lee Chancey and I were in
the right place at the right time,

and we were the lucky recipi-
ents.
Two of the young men from
church were in the Halloween
spirit after our Fall Festival, and
knocked on our door Saturday
night. I was expecting our
s granddaughter, Kaylee, and
went to the door barefoot and in

t and a scary alien were there. I
t made their night with my -loud
scream!
There are quite a few still
sick and among them 'are Daniel
Duke's sister, Charlton Sadler,
Brother A.O. Hendry, Wynell
Davis, and Sue Davis. Ginny
Oden said she tired Gary out
Saturday, and he was a little'
under the weather. I don't
remember if she said shopping
or not, but that alone makes
most men sick! Please pray for
all the sick.
Make sure you exercise your
important privilege and vote
this Tuesday. This is a very
important election.
Pray for one another and our
nation and don't forget to
change your clock Saturday
night!

The crew also filmed at the food prep Center where they were shown what it takes to
feed all of the apes in sanctuary. That day's meal consisted of an array of fruits and veg-
etables such as bananas, apples, kiwi, carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers and lettuce.
S.. "' *.., r


COURTESY PHOTOS
The directoriof the center, Patti Ragan, was amused that the crew had to wear 3D glasses
in order to be able to shoot scenes for an upcoming film.


Identical 16-year-old twins, Jonah and Jacob, formerly starred in movies and TV com-
mercials such as the 2001 version of Planet of the Apes and the original "Trunk Monkey"
commercials. They are just, two of the over 40 apes currently living at the Center for
Great Apes.

was the only U.S. facility they
used for the film since it is the
only accredited sanctuary in
North America that takes orang-
utans.
From the Center, the crew
then flew to New York where
they filmed primatologist Jane
Goodall speaking to the United
Nations about great ape conser-
vation.
Director of the Center, Patti
Ragan, feels that she and the
facility can be ambassadors for
the apes because they need to
be protected. By doing this
film, she hopes it will bring
awareness to all- the problems
great apes are facing.
One of the biggest problems
apes face is the destruction of
their natural habitats. Several of
these apes homes are too often
destroyed in order to make
room for palm oil plantations.
Palm oil is found in some types
of foods, cosmetics, body prod-
ucts and evening cleaning solu-
tions.
Thousands of orangutans are
slaughtered and if their babies
survive, they are sold to amuse-
ment parks, the circus or to han-
dlers. Handlers will then train
them to appear in films or com-
mercials until they get too old
and strong to handle, which is
usually between six to eight
years old.
They are then sold to breed-
ers, biomedical research labs,
roadside zoos or kept in small
cages. Only the lucky ones are
sent to places like the Center
where they are able to live out
the rest of their lives with digni-
ty.
Their life spans can be.
between 50 and 60 years for
chimps and over 50 years for
orangutans who live in captivi-
ty.
However, according to Ra-
gan. if the destruction of their
habitat continues, orangutans
may be extinct in 10 years.
SThe upcoming film titled
"The Last of the qreat Apes,"
hopes to bring much-needed
awareness to this big issue.
This particular film was dif-
ferent for the Center to take part
in because it was being filmed
in 3D.
SRagan said. that over the past
15 years there have been sever-
al film crews at the Center, but
this was their first experience
with 3D. She was amazed at
how large the camera was and
how much more time it took to
set it up.
She said it took two people to
operate the camera. Even more
amusing to her was that they
had to wear the red and blue 3D
Sglas-'es in order to see what they
were filming.


The crew were at the facility
.for three days in September
where -they filmed .the apes' in
their daily-iactivities. Those ac-
tiitie!. included routine check-
ups the staff is. able to adminis-
ter through the bars of the
enclosures, without having to
anesthetize them.
They also filmed orangutans
Pongo and Lily doing "enrich-
ment" on an iPad. These enrich-
ment exercises are done in
order to keep the apes active
and stimulated. Some of the
.applications, the apes like to use
on the iPad are those withwhich,
they can draw those with music
and also where there are differ-
ent animals that make sounds.
Although the Center's staff
was excited to work with this
film crew, in the weeks that fol-
lowed they also welcomed three
other film crews to the Center!
SA Belgian crew arrived just a
week after the Australians left
to do an eight-part series on ani-


mals; another Australian crew
arrived to shoot for a show with
a similar format as the show
"60 Minutes;" and finally a
crew from France was set to do
another documentary on the
center.
Ragan hopes that with all of
this positive exposure the
Center is receiving, more peo-
ple will realize things they can
do to better the lives of apes.
"People can help by not buy-
ing things with palm oil in it,"
she said. With less palm oil in
demand then less habitats will
have to be destroyed, giving
orangutans a fighting chance at
survival:

at the Center, visit centerfor-
greatapes.org. There you will

how to help them.
The film, "The Last of the
Great Apes" will be released
worldwide in 2013 in 3D in
IMAX theatres.

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The odds were impossible to
overcome this time.
The Hardee girls golf team
played a tough course at the
Lemon Bay Golf Club in Class
IA, Region 6 competition in
Englewood last wee( and also
battled girls almost ready to go
on to professional status.
S The top two teams, and top
dozen individuals were almost
all from small private schools,
which dominate, the Class 1 A
division.
St. Stephen's Episcopal
School of Bradenton.took top
honors as its team did at the
District 16 matchups the previ-
ous week, this time with a team
score of 296. Four of its five-
person' team scored amazingly,
including ninth grader Oi Lam
Yan with a 69. her eighth grade
sister Hiu Lam Yan with 78.
Between them were junior
Quihao Zhao at 74 and senior
Yi Meng Zheng with 75. Only
freshman Nupur Mathur had a
more normal girls score on 123
on the 18-hole event.
'Placing second as regional
runner-up was Community
School of Naples, which hosted
the event. That team finished
with 330, led by junior Ann
Buersmeyer at 77, followed by
soph Emily Buersmeyer at 81,
soph Claire Bazalgette at 84,
senior Alexandria Ramirez with
88 and freshman Rhodora
Donahue at 102.
The Lady Wildcats came in at
474, with its five juniors doing
well for their experience level.
All are expected next season for
Coach Byron Jarnigan. Lacey
McClenithan led Hardee home
with a 97. Brooke Knight came
in at 122, Courtney. Alexander
at 123, Kaitlyn Shaw at 132 and
Kate Thomas at 134.
Although he might be able to
field a team next year some of
the time, Jarnigan is looking for
some younger girls to help pick
up the slack and prepare for the
future. McClenithan is not
available all the time because of
a conflict with cheerleading,
and should an injury sideline
one of the other girls, Hardee
would be unable to field a team.
Hardee would not likely ever


Ip-.; f-.. ** -"


be able to compete effectively
against private schools whose
students are able to practice
several hours daily and all year
long on some of the best cours-
es around.
The top -three individuals
were all from St. Stephen's, Oi
Lam Yan. Quihao Zhao and Yi
Meng Zheng. The first individ-
ual not from the winning school
was soph Jenna Tuccio of Saint
John Neumann Catholic. She
became the first individual state
qualifier.

Volleyball Season Over


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2012 Hardee girls vol-
leyball squad finished its season
last week.
The girls were unable to
overcome the uphill battle in
the Class 5a District 10 playoffs
in Auburndale. They faced the
number one seeded host
Auburndale' Bloodhounds, with
a record of 17-8, on their own
court.
Hardee didn't go down easily
in the first round of the playoffs
last Monday, ,Oct. 22, squaring
off against a team determined
not to led Hardee claim an upset
as it did last fall.
Fourth-seeded Hardee went
at it hard in the quarterfinal
match last Monday, but lost 25-
12.25-20 and 25-14 in the best-
of-five format.
Auburndale sat idle on
Tuesday evening, watching
Lake Wales win ,3-2 over.
Teneroc.t
In the championship game


last Thursday, Auburndale
showed it had learned well and
won 25-20, 25-9 and 25-13; It
was scheduled to host the loser
of the Merritt Island-Rockledge
game on Wednesday of this
week, while Lake Wales has to
travel to clash with the winner
of that District 9 match.
Hardee loses four seniors to
graduation, Jessica Harrison,
Desiree Smith, Katie Wheeler
and Ana Saldivar.
Able to return for at least one
more season are juniors Karlee
Henderson, Kendall Gough and
Bailey. Carlton, along with
sophs Emily Albritton, Jaka-
ysha Lindsey and Gemi Saun-
ders. They could be assisted by
this year's JV sophs Destiny
Thompson, Allison Smith,
Abigail Vargas, Brooke Dixon,
Georgeann Paris, Hannah
Grisinger, Courtney Richardson
and Caryssa Johnson, along
with frosh Senida Garcia,
Brenda Miramontes, Josie Han-
cock and Claudia Klein.

FROGS
Who better deserves the title "Lord of the Flies" more than the
critter with the lightning tongue which flicks out and catches din-
ner on the wing? BeelzebuJb, in the Latin please, for the fossil
remains of 10-pound, 16-inch croaker of 18 million years ago,
found in Madagascar. Mystery: His closest relatives had been dug
up in faraway South America!
We think of the anoura family tailless as ourselves as
divided into two camps: buJbs and ranas, or toads and frogs, to use
the vernacular. Never the twain shall meet, we think, but scientists
put them in the same boat.
:. In any case, for us non-scientists, it is the spirit of an "animat-
ed being," not its architecture, which counts. "Toad" means one
thing and it's ugly and sometimes poisonous, while "frog" is far
more friendly, witness Kermit and the pond-dwellers that serenade
you at night.
Frogs are shape-shifters incarnate. They metamorphose from
egg to pollywog to noisy, big-mouthed, fly-zapping jumpers. They
are amphibians, emerging from the depths of water, as our ances-
tors allegedly did, to live on land and breathe air through lungs. If
we take into account our prenatal lives, we're not all that different.
Our notion of this strange being has been skewed by other
'.'Frogs" (the French), who eat their namesakes the thighs, at
least. There's an industry supplying these "cuisses de grenouile"
and it's located in Indonesia.
h Meanwhile, more than one Hardee County citizen climbs into
his airboat at night to go frog-hunting flashlight in hand, dinner
in mind.
SThe bottom line, though, is that the Grimm Brothers, of

WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?
Does the high school have responsibility or juris-
diction over your teenager 24-7?
No! Maybe! Well,,yes, under certain circumstances.
That issue was brought before the Hardee County
School Board last Thursday at the conclusion of its reg-
ular meeting.
It seems a student athlete prank at a teacher/coach's
home on a weekend had gone awry, ending up with
unforeseen consequences at school. Was that appropri-
ate?
SThere's a comparison between the adult world and
that of the teenager at the local high school, which is a
microcosm of the adult world, and expected to prepare
the teens for the adult world.
At the high'school, there are students of every race,
creed and color with which to get along throughout the
day. That's what the adult, world faces every day,
whether in the military, college, work or the neighbor-
hood.
At the high school, there is a code of conduct, which
can be seen on the high school web site. In the adult
world, it is ordinances and laws which govern accept-
able behavior.
In the community, certain people are held to higher
standards, even when off duty, policemen and firefight-
ers, members of the clergy, business and community
leaders, and public and school officials. In the high
school, it's the Student Council and other class leaders,
National Honor Society, leaders of clubs and other
activities, and athletes, who are expected to represent
their school positively whenever and wherever they are.
In each world, those with greater achievement and
leadership also have greater responsibility. The commu-
nity is dismayed and demands action when one of its
leaders has a lapse in judgment, small or big. High
school students, likewise, expect action when one of its
leaders doesn't do well.
In the adult world, consequence's may vary from
loss of community approval all the way up to arrest and
conviction, fines and court costs, probation, maybe
even the ultimate black mark, a jail or prison sentence.
At the high school, consequences may vary also,
disapproval of one's peers to a reprimand, some form
of restitution (letter of apology, etc.), in-school suspen-
sion called A.C.E. (Alternative Classroom Environ-
ment), and the ultimate, expulsion from school, the only
matter which come before the School Board.
Back to the question at hand. The young adults


S November 1, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 9B
could have faced community consequences with juve-
nile detention and/or court for "adult" charges of tres-
pass, criminal mischief and the like. Instead, it was up
to the school to handle the matter in-house, under a
clause in, the student handbook saying it is wrong to dis-
respect a teacher/coach. The students were interviewed,
as they are in any school misbehavior, usually one that
occurs on campus, during a school-sponsored activity
or on. school transportation.
Should the School Board be involved? School
Board members have no control over school discipline,
at least they shouldn't. They've already had their say
when approving the student handbook. It's the same as
a municipal or county commission, which has no con-
trol once it passes an ordinance on how the police or law
enforcement officers administer it.

COMMON SENSE


LEADERSHIP


I believe that the citizens of our county have lost faith in their government. That faith must be restored if we hope to move forward as a
community. My agenda is simple: Do what is best for the people of Hardee County, not what is best for myself or a chosen few.

I believe that I can make a difference in the future of Hardee County.


"As a husband,
S father, and
business owner i
e a oam keenly aware
eof the county's
challenges and
opportunities"
About Mike...
Iama 1982 graduate of Hardee High School, and a 1985 graduate of SFCC. I am
part, owner and manager of Orange Enterprises, Inc. in Zolfo Springs. My father,
Ken Thompson and his partners started this company in Hardee County in 1974.
We provide Citrus Hedging services to the citrus industry statewide. We currently
employ about 20 people in Hardee County. I started out sweeping floors and
driving tractors while in High School. I have been in management for over 20
years. My wife Sheri is a 1987 HHS graduate and currently a kindergarten teacher
at Zolfo Elementary School. We have been married for 22 years and have two
children, Jillian, 12 and Emily, 10. Our family is actively involved in the Wauchula
campus of Celebration Church.


I will...
Support and encourage smart growth
We must prepare ourselves for the day that our phosphate reserves are exhausted.
We must create an environment which attracts business and industry to our county.
The infrastructure and schools of the countymust be improved. '
Require open, honest communication and accurate information for taxpayers
Serving on the Hardee County Planning and Zoning board for five years and as
chairman for four years, has taught me that research, communication and integrity
are key to moving our county in a positive direction.
Require fiscal responsibility
The citizens of this county are concerned about how their money is being spent.
Over the next 10 years, in excess of One Billion Dollars will flow through the
government entities in Hardee County. Every penny of this money must be spent
wisely and fully accounted for. I believe that a $47 million budget for a population
of 28,000 is excessive. Whatever you think of the quality of our government, we
have reached a level of spending that we cannot continue or afford.
Evaluate personnel and procedures to improve effectiveness
County employees should be evaluated and held to standards of integrity and
effectiveness. If employees do not meet these standards, I will support their
replacement with qualified personnel


I appreciate your support and ask for your vote on November 6th!

Closes With Wins


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A final pair of victories ended
the junior high softball season.
The girls won II -1 at Lake
Placid and 3-0 at home against
Sebring -to finish the 2012 sea-
son with a 7-2 record, their only
losses at the hands of DeSoto.
That, plus an Oct. 4 rain-out
,against Avon Park were the
only down sides to a successful
season.
Head coach Melissa Carlton
and assistants Ryn Heine and
Jake Carltoh will lose only four
eighth graders and expect the
majority of their 15-girl squad
to be back next year. Going
to the high school are Ariana
Ramos, Michaela Villarreal,
Sarah Welch and Shayna
Harned.
A full team's worth of talent
is expected to return, seventh
graders, Alayna Carranco,
Alexis McBride, Deborah
Figueroa, Destinee Jackson,
Hannah Revell, Hope Elliott,
Makayla Benavidez, Mallor
Gough, Marisa Rodriguez,
Nubia 'Gomez and Samantha
Velez, many of whom will play
off-season girls league softball.

Hardeee 11, Lake Placid 1
Leadoff batter Jackson got
Hardee on the board in -the top
of the first inning, When she sin-
gled up the middle, stole sec-
ond, went to third on an Elliott
hit to left center and slipped
home on an error on a Rod-
riguez hit. Lake' Placid tied the
score in the home half of the
first on a hit, and back-to-back
errors.
The.- tie continued until the
fifth -inning. Hardee left Mc-
Bride and Velez stranded in the
second frame, and Carranco in


the third. The fourth was the
only three up. three down
inning for Hardee. Lake Placid .
left one aboard in the second
ifnincg.
The fifth inning was a break-
away for the junior Lady Wild-
cats, with 15 batters going to
.the plate and 10 of them cross-
ing home plate. Welch led the
scoring parade with a left field
homer in her first at-bat of the
inning and an RBI double in her
second trip there. Jackson and
Harned also had twin trips to
home plate, while' Elliott,
Carranco, McBride and Villar-
real also put a run each on the
scoreboard.
Hardee 3, Sebring 0
The Hardee girls did all their
scoring in the first inning for
the' season finale home win
against Sebring on Oct. 25.
Welch was solid on the mound
Sin creating a no-hitter, including
nine strikeouts.
Sebring was quickly up and
down in the top of the first, a
liner to the pitcher sandwiched
between strikeouts. Hardee got
on the board with a walk to
Jackson, errors on hits by
Harned and Ramos and a Welch,
double. It was 3-0, all Hardee
would need for the win.
For the balance of the game,
Sebring left two runners strand-
ed in the second inning, another
in the third and one in the fourth
before going down one-two-
three in the final at-bat in the
fifth.
Meanwhile, ., Hardee left
Jackson and Harned on base in
the second inning, Gough in the
third and Jackson and Elliott in
the fourth. When Sebring didn't
score in the top of the fifth,
Hardee didn't need to bat in the
bottom of the final inning.

Daughter Of Migrants


Named To Key Position


Isabel Garcia grew up travel-
ing from harvest to harvest with
her family.
There were oranges in Flor-
ida. peaches in Maryland and
tobacco in North Carolina.
She began working in pro-
duce packing houses in her early
teens. Then. school changed her
life.
During Garcia's senior year at
Hardee Senior High School. she
joined Redlands Christian
Migrant Association as an after-
school teacher. She never left.
And last week. the daughter
of migrant farmworkers ascend-
ed to the second highest job
among RCMA's total 1.800
employees and is responsible for
the nonprofit organization's 71
child care centers and most of its
ancillary programs.
Garcia, 42. was named
RCMA's new associate execu-
tive director, replacing Leslie
Moguil, who is leaving RCMA
for a similar position in Oregon.
Garcia lives in her hometown
of Bowling Green with her hus-
band'and three children. She
previously was RCMA's direc-
tor of program quality. She has
been a leader at RCMA since
she was placed in charge of a


Garcia
child-care center at age 21.
"'I have known Isabel for
most of her life," said Executive
Director Barbara Mainster. who
announced the appointment at
an RCMA management meet-
ing in Tampa. "She is a perfect
example of what we believe in,
growing leadership from within
the communities we serve. I
have total confidence in her
capabilities!"
Within RCMA, Garcia is an
important symbol.
In its earliest years,, in the
Redlands labor camp in Dade
County, RCMA struggled to
win the trust of farmworkers,


who were shunning the new
child-care centers and taking
their toddlers into the fields as
they worked. That changed dra-
matically when RCMA hired
young mothers to leave the
fields and work in the child-
care centers.
Ever since, RCMA has
recruited staff with back-
grounds similar to the low-
income families it serves; They
receive extensive training, and
are encouraged to undertake
college. They are supported in
each center by an early child-
hood development expert hired
without regard to family back-
ground.
RCMA, meanwhile, has
expanded into farming commu-
nities in 21 Florida counties. It
is an acclaimed provider for the
federal Migrant & Seasonal
Head Start program.
"This is a huge honor, and a
challenge, for me," Garcia said.
"RCMA is always changing,
but one thing stays the same:
We do everything we can to
help families. We provide
excellent education to children
in the early years when it counts
the most. That's my inspira-
tion."

Young 'Cats Corral

DeSoto 40-6


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
One more game.
And, it's for all the marbles,
as the Hardee Junior High
School football team plays its
-ason finale at Sebring in an
usual Thursday game today
5:30 p.m.
Sebriug had asked several
,ks ago to change the home
ie on its field due to a con-
t in scheduling.
So, Hardee just had to post-
pone its quest for a fifth consec-
utive Heartland Conference title
for a couple of more days. With
its 40-6 win last week in the
home closer against DeSoto,
Hardee continues to dominate
the conference, outscoring op-
ponents to date this season 172-
16.
Four different players scored
the five touchdowns in last
week's victory. Three of them
also scored on two-point con-
versions, while quarterback
Willie Baker posted a pair of
conversion scores.
Alejandro Rodriguez started
it with a 15-yard TD catch from
Baker. Parker Carlton caught
the conversion pass. Next,
Jarrett Carlton scurried down-
field for a 60-yard TD, with
Alejandro Rodriguez snaring
the conversion pass from Baker.
Ismael Rodriguez got into the
act with a 27-yard scoring run.
Baker ran in the conversion run.
Parker Carlton added a 30-yard
jaunt with Jarrett Carlton run-
ning across the goal line for the
conversion. He also got in with
the final 30-yard run, while
Baker ran in the conversion
tally.
DeSoto scored its only TI on
a 10-yard run in the second
quarter, but was unable to add
conversion points.
Jacques Brown and Alejandro
Rodriguez shared Defensive
Player of the game honors.
Brown forced a fumble and had
f6ur tackles, all for a loss of
yardage. Rodriguez had twin
tackles, one for a loss, and also
recovered a pair of fumble and
forced a fumble.
Other defenders getting into
the action were Parker Carlton
with four tackles, and Ismael


Rodriguez, Gabriel Mendoza,
Gloigens, Jarrett Carlton,
Cavaris Snell and Baker with
three tackles apiece. Rodriguez
and Mendoza each caused lost
yardage on one of their tackles
and Metayer added a fumble
recovery to his stats.
Boone Paris, Sherry Lee and
Jonatan.Martinez each pressed
for two tackles, while Jeremy
Reyna and Tanner Carlton had
one apiece, the last for lost
ground.
Jarrett Carlton collected 14
points to be Offensive Player of
the Week. He had 107 yards on
four carries with a pair of TDs
and a conversion run.
Parker Carlton picked up 75
yards rushing on seven carries,
for eight points on a touchdown
and a conversion reception.
Ismael Rodriguez had 64
yards on eight carries and one
TD, while Baker picked up 14
yards rushing on two carries'.
He got four points on twin con-
version runs and threw for 21
yards, including a TD and pair
of conversion passes.
Snell had 16 yards rushing on
two carries and Alejandro

catches, including a TD and a
conversion.

SOWER

!"(4tI A 0(1"
UC4H V.CWvtd


A lovely Christian mother was
rubbing lotion on her face, and her
little girl said, "Now Iknow how to
be beautiful."
'How?" asked the mother.
"By rubbing beauty lotion all
over, she answered.
No, it's not lotion on the outride
that makes one truly beautiful. It's
the Lord on the inside.
When you yield yourself to the
Lord within, others will see His
1oveliness without.
Instead of an expression that
reveals anger, there'll be affection.
Instead of eyes that radiate
sourness, there'll be sweetness.
Instead of a face that reflects
hopelessness, there'll be hopeful-
ness.' "
Let's pray with the Psalmist,
Letthebeauly oftheLord our God
be upon us."

Listen to GodI


A new puppy is a delight, until we try to get him to obey, our
orders! If we can't teach him to listen, he might run iway and
get hurl. A well loved puppy, however, is slowly and patiently
trained, until he almost always obeys.and is mostly safe. Could
God feel the same way about us? We can live our lives according
to His Word and surdly we are safer and
happier when we dtso. He
also gave us tree will, and ,
uur human nature
st'mt's to olten lead
u- astray; yet, we
are well loved
by God and

pGrowing Up in Small Town America
A' by Ana Galvez, HHS Student


Small town America. Most of us
who have been fortuitous enough
to be raised in a cozy and familiar
neighborhood take for granted
these two precious aspects. One
must consider the multitude of up
sides to being raised in a close-knit
community such as ours. In fact,
one of the loveliest things about
living in a small town is the people.
In our small town, there is an incre-
dible diversity of cultures and ethnic
groups. Somehow, all these groups
actually fit in together, comfortably,
and are not inclined to vex each
other because of their differences.
People would rather get along
pleasantly than start a quarrel with
someone they are likely to bump
into at any moment, whether at the
physician's office, at a little league
baseball game, or the grocery
store. For this reason, traditional
southern hospitality is something
of a prerequisite for those who plan
on living in a rural community.
Hardee is brimming with neighborly
benevolence and conviviality. It is
common on hot, sunny afternoons,
for everyone to bring out the sweet
iced tea and invite the family
and friends over for a barbeque.


The sweet, fragrant orange blossoms,
whose intoxicating scent permeates
the air during the spring, are replaced
in the chillier winter weather with
the delicious orange orbs that are
the primary staple crop in the state.
What more could be said about
\
the rather cheerful atmosphere
of an agricultural town, present
year round, than the charisma-
producing effect the rustic feel of
the town has on its individuals?
Growing up in Hardee County is not
quite as stressful as a metropolitan
city, where the lights never -go out,
and everything is bustling with
activity even in the wee hours of
the morning. In Hardee County, a
serene atmosphere is more likely
present, and the streets are regularly
deserted by 10:00 p.m. at the latest.
Going out at night guarantees a
chance to observe the beautiful
constellations and admire the
stellar beauty of the dark heavens.
The way the night sky is lit up is
one of the remarkable privileges
enjoyed exclusively by residents of
small towns, due to the lack of city
lights that intervene with the grand
spectacle. The beauty of a small
town sky is unknown to many city


One of the unique benefits of growing up in a small town is the opportu-
nity to attend the same school with your friends all the way through to high
school graduation! Article author Ana Galvez (L) and Deanna Sanchez (R) be-
came friends in second grade and remain so today. Here, they took time after
a morning pep rally for a quick conversation before starting their school day.


dwellers, and a powerful reason small
town folk crave home after a period
of toughing it out in the large cities.
My high school peers tend to say they
cannot wait to leave Hardee County
when they graduate, but they forget how
fortunate they ate to have been raised
in a community that feels like a family.


Growing up in a small, rural town is
likely to factor into our future success as
young adults. It gives us an edge which
cannot be found in the congested streets
of a concrete jungle, but in the sparsely
crowded sidewalks of a small town.


Hardee High STEM Scholars students recently visited 5th graders at
North Wauchula Elementary to talk to them about the Science Fair.
Pictured here, Brooke Conley shares her research project of test-
ing algae used for making bio fuels. After the presentations, the
STEM Scholars assisted the 5th graders with their science, projects.

Team Sports is one of the popular P.E. courses offered to HHS stu-

cluding swimming. Pictured here (L to R), Timmy Hicks, Francisco Sal-

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo
Well, football fans, the Gators have adopted the creed that "it
is better to give than receive." Six turnovers against the Dawgs
were all the gifts Georgia needed to ruin the Gators' dreams. Of
course, a lot of credit should go to the Georgia defense for forcing
the six turnovers and holding the Gators to three field goals. The
Dawgs have now claimed back-to-back victories over Florida in
the rivalry. The Gators will host Missouri this week at the Swamp.
The BCS Standings will be changed as Notre Dame beat
Oklahoma at Norman. The Irish have not played a tough schedule
but this win has made believers of many doubters. Their next three
games are a joke with Pitt, Boston College and Wake Forest.
Kansas St. should move to number two with Oregon in third place
followed by the Irish at fourth. Alabama looks to be too strong for
any team beat but the Tide will get a test in Baton Rouge this week.
The Bulls of South Florida host Connecticut this week at
home. USF is the last-place team in the Big East but this game
should be a win, moving them ahead of the Huskies. Rutgers is the
Big East leader but lost its first game to Kent St. from the Mid-
American .Conference this week:. Louisville remains undefeated.
Charlie Strong is getting some serious looks from SEC teams.
Louisville will be looking for a new coach if things progress.
Florida State continues its walk through the ACC. The 8-1
Seminoles are off this week before traveling to Virginia Tech and
Maryland the following two ,weeks.
10 teams in the Top 25 lost this weekend. Parity is the word.
Can the Top 4 continue unbeaten? There are still 5 unbeaten teams
in major college football.
Now let's look at this week's Bill 0" Fare...
1. Missouri at Florida Gators return to their winning ways
playing now for a solid bowl game unless Georgia just trips on the
way to Atlanta. Florida 27 Missouri 10.
2. Oklahoma St. at Kansas St. Colin Klein just keeps get-
ting it done. A title game between.KSU and the Tide would great to
watch. Kansas St. 59 Oklahoma St. 24,
3. UConn at USF Bulls get the win in the Battle of the
Basement in the Big East. USF 31 UConn 24.
4. Memphis at Marshall QB Cato still leads the nation in
passing and a bowl game is still within reach. Herd rebounds at
home. Marshall 44 Memphis 23.
5. Vanderbilt at Kentucky Vandy goes to 5-4 with bowl
hopes in their eyes. Vandy 33 UK 24.
6. TCU at West Virginia Geno and the offense get back to
business and the defense shows improvement. TCU has lost 25
players since last spring but still have played well. This is the first
game between the teams as Big 12 members. West Virginia 38
TCU 27.
7. Pitt at Notre Dame Pitt lost to Youngstown St. You get
the picture. Notre Dame 56 Pitt 7.
8. Texas at Texas Tech Longhorns have a 6-2 record but






iTr4


have not been impressive. The Red Raiders play special in
Lubbock. Texas Tech 35 Texas 27.
9. Oregon at Southern Cal Trojans derail the Quack
Attack? Not likely but it will a fun game to watch. Oregon 49 USC
31.
10. Alabama at LSU Tide will play a tough defense but
score enough to win convincingly. LSU will give its best perform-
ance though. Alabama 24 LSU 10.
11. Texas A&M at Mississippi St. Aggies are a 2.5 point
favorite but the Dawgs will rebound at home after Bama loss.
Mississippi ST. 31 Texas A&M 28.
12. Tulsa at Arkansas Hogs face'a passing threat from
CUSA but the SEC talent gives them an edge at home in this one.
Arkansas 38 Tulsa 31.
13. Troy at Tennessee Vols get a win but not enough to
silence those wanting a coaching change. Gruden to Knoxville?
Tennessee 38 Troy 13.
14. Northern Colorado at Portland St. -.2 win Bears take on
3 win Portland St. UNC wins a close one for win number 3 in the
Big Sky Conference. UNC 24 Portland ST. 21.
15. Oklahoma at Iowa St. Sooners rebound but only after a
tough Cyclone test in Ames. Always tough to play in Ames, Iowa.
Oklahoma 33 Iowa St. 24.
16. Kansas at Baylor Bears at home pass past hapless
Kansas. Baylor 38 Kansas 17.
17. Virginia Tech at Miami Canes at 2.5 underdogs but do
prevail over the "Chokies" who are always vastly overrated.
Miami 35 VPI 31.
18. Tampa at Oakland Josh Freeman has thrown 3 touch-
down passes in each of the last 3 games. The Bucs are coming
back. Tampa 27 Oakland 23.
19. Detroit at Jacksonville Jags fall short again. Detroit 30
Jacksonville 21.
20. Miami at Indianapolis Fish defense is for real. Miami
23 Indianapolis 17,
