National Landmark Could Be Zoned For Apartments


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Property rights and public
interest may clash in an upcom-
ing hearing on the Underwood
Estate in Wauchula.
First readings of ordinances
to rezone and change the land
use category for the 35.49-acre
property off East Bay Street
would forever change what has
been known as the Azalea Hill
home of the late Tommy and
Elizabeth Underwood.
The home set back from East
Bay Street is one of only two
properties in the county which
are on the National Historic
Register. The other is the his-
toric Fort Chokonikla at Paynes
Creek State Park off Lake
Branch Road in Bowling
Green.
The Underwood properties,
including the original manor
and associated structures and
groves, are now in an estate
handled by successor trustee
James Stallings, who made
application for the rezone and
land use change. There can be
no spot zoning so all 11 parcels
are subject to rezone from R-I
Single Family Residential to R-
3 medium density residential.

including multi-famly housing,
"to accommodate proposed use
in one of the existing structures
and for future development
potential."
The immediate goal is con-
verting the former Golda
Carlton home at the northeast
end of the property into apart-
ments or units for the residents
of Lydia's House of the Sherry
White Ministries. Utilities in
the home at 406 E. Bay Street
home have been turned on in
White's name.
Utilities are also on in the
main house at 302 Azalea Hill,
where an auction will be held
on Nov. 17.
Changing to R-3 Zoning


would not allow any commer-
cial or industrial use of the
Underwood properties, but one
possible use, by Special
Exception, could be as a muse-
um. To date, no one has
explored the possibility of
National Historic funds for pur-
chase and restoration of the
properties.
The closest anyone has come to
making use of the historic prop-
erty was about a year ago when
Peace River Explorations want-
ed to include weddings, tours
and other activities at the estate
as part of its outreach to the
community.
Community notices on ac-
tions at the Underwood Estate


as well as other happenings in
Wauchula are brief, noting only
the date and time of meetings of,
the Planning & Zoning Board
and/or Wauchula Commission,
referring people to a website
listing the agenda.
That is changing as the city
launched this week an interac-
tive site where agenda packet
information available to the
boards and commission are now
available to the public.
Minutes of the Oct. 15
Planning & Zoning Board


meeting show member Ray
Graham made a motion to not
approve a recommendation to
rezone the Underwood proper-
ty. It was seconded by Donna
Steffens. The board, which also
includes Jan Knight, Shenita
Toczek and Garry Phillips, was
unanimous in its decision to not
recommend the rezone or
reclassified land use. One resi-
dent spoke about not wanting
the character of the neighbor-
hood to change.

bubble. They preferred Repub-
lican Connie Mack to Democrat
Bill Nelson, but only by giving
him 51 percent of the vote.
Statewide, Nelson won.
Finally, in third spot, came a
local race, the three-way battle
for County Commission Dis-
trict 1. That race drew 7,030
Hardee County voters. Results
gave the seat to Republican
Colon Lambert with 3,391 to
incumbent Minor Bryant's
2,430 and opponent Donny
Waters' 1,209.
Falling in place behind those
races most important to local
voters were those for schools
superintendent, County
Commission District 5 and,
dragging well behind, County
Commission District 3.
David Durastanti won anoth-
er term as schools head, beating
Democrat Dick Daggett 4,087
to 2,912. Republican Mike
Thompson took Commission
District 5 with 3,299 votes, to
2,144 for Perry Knight and
1,511 for Loran Cogburn.
But then local voters shifted
to U.S. Congress, State Senate
and most of the multitude of
constitutional amendments be-
fore deciding to vote for either
candidate in the race for County
Commission District 3.
A full 633 local voters reject-
ed that race, preferring not to
vote for either incumbent Rick
Knight or challenger Chuck
Dixon. Those who did darken a
bubble went with Knight over
Dixon, 4,573 to 2,034.
That would seem to mean
Knight has a great deal of hard
work ahead of him.
"I would like to thank all the
people who supported me in my
election, and a special thanks to
Julie Watson," Knight said
early Wednesday morning. "I
will endeavor to represent all
the people in Hardee County
during my term.
"I wish Chuck Dixon peace
and goodwill for the future," he
continued. "I will continue to

Hardee senior Jesus Zuniga leads his fellow Wildcats onto the field against the DeSoto
Bulldogs last Friday night waving this black flag. During his pre-game speech Head
Coach Buddy Martin told the players that Civil War soldiers carried a white flag if they
planned to surrender and a black flag if the soldiers intended to continue the fight.
Martin s inspirational message worked, as the Wildcats came out motivated and deter-
mined, and took a 14-0 lead and held on to win the game 21-13 in Arcadia.

Other victors also comment-

"First and foremost, I would
like to thank the good Lord

went on to thank his wife,
Shawna, his friends and sup-
porters. "I appreciate your con-

For those who chose another

He applauded his predeces-

prayer from the community as
he prepares to serve as its new

those who he does not know to

November 8, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 3A


Letter To The Public

Alma Albritton Is Proud Of Husband


Dear Hardee Counts and
Commissioner Grady Johnson,
This has been a long month ...
mixed with emotions that 1 can-
not even find to express my
feelings. On that note. I would
like to put a lid on the matter
'with Commissioner Grad,
Johnson. In the past tw.'o ears I
have experienced some very
negative things regarding my
experience with Commissioner
Grady, and the effects it has had
on my family is not just collat-
eral damage. There is some-
thing that I would like to make
clear, that I have no intention to
stop expecting honesty and
integrity in our governing offi-
cials, as a Christian, as a citizen,
as a wife and as a mother.
On 'Ihursday, November 1,
many witnessed what I would
call a "minor temper tantrum"
by Commissioner Grady John-
son when I asked him how
many times he has met with the
county manager regarding all
the issues Grady has accused
the county manager. Accusa-
tions in the boardroom, his pub-
lic webpage, and in the commu-
nity in the past 24 months he
has been in office ... his answer
was not surprising to me, but I
imagine would be to anyone
who expects accountability in
our local government.
His answer was three times
(in two years) furthermore,
those three times were between
Nov. 2010 to March 2011 (4
months) then no meetings with
the county manager from
March 2011 to November 2012
... that is a period of 20 months
with no meetings with the coun-
ty manager regarding any coun-
ty issues he is debating ... and
those three times were not
regarding any of the issues
Commissioner Grady is accus-
ing the county manager of.
Grady also called him a liar in
the open boardroom. His statu-
tory requirements include regu-
larly meeting with the county
manager regarding county is-
sues. In part, this is what a
county manager form of gov-
ernment is: commissioners
working with the county man-
ager on county issues.
I would like to make clear, I
am not speaking for the county
manager. As I stated before, he
is very capable of handng his
own affairs ... but I am speaking
-for myself and my children who
are minor citizens.
I need to clarify that the very
accusations and name-calling
and psychiatric evaluations by
Commissioner Grady Johnson
regarding his assessment of the
county manager are not only
untrue, they are defamatory,
slanderous, unethical, and un-
becoming of a governing offi-
cial of any rank!
On October 5, 2012, 1 sent an
overnight certified letter, with
return receipt requested to


Commissioner Grady Johnson,
concerning these issues. Not
only was my document unread,
it was returned to me unopened
after 15 days, because the
notices sent to Commissioner
Grady Johnson were ignored
and the document refused. The
unopened letter is still in my
possession if anyone would like
to verify these statements as
true.
I have tried to ask Commiss-
ioner Grady to "do the right
thing" ... but my requests have
been ignored or denied. I do not
wish Commissioner Grady any
harm, what I do wish for him is
to turn his divisiveness into
something constructive and turn
all the time and energy tearing
down our town, into something
good. How many times do the
auditors have to clear his com-
plaints of any wrongdoing?
How many times does a man
have to be found innocent and
still be accused? This is not a
matter of opinions ... Commis-
sioner Grady is entitled to his
opinions. This is a matter of
misfeasance.
I want everyone to know I
have tried to do what is in the
best interest of my family, the
county manager, and the BOCC
and the community. This type
of attack cannot continue to go
on, without having ramifica-
tions far reaching into our com-
munity. Especially when it is
specifically aimed at many
good, honest people; from our
other four commissioners, to
the IDA, EDC, and EDA, as
well as the county manager and
several other leaders in our
community who have been
accused of being part of a cabal.
You have made the comment
in the community that "you feel
sorry for me" ... Commissioner
Grady, please don't feel sorry
for me ... I have the love of the
Lord, a faithful husband and
loving father, and six beautiful
children whom I am proud to
call my own. I know the man I
married and whom I have
known for 23 years of my life,
and I can tell you beyond the
shadow of a doubt ... you are
wrong! ... and no amount of
wordplay, verbal attacks, web-
page defamation or misfeasance
is going to tell me or those who
know him best any differently!
So for Commissioner Grady
and those people who support
you ... here is the Lex Albritton
I know:
The Lex Albritton I know
stands strong in the face of
adversity.
He is kind.
He is honest.
He is a man of honor and
integrity, especially in the face
of adversity.
He is benevolent to others, in
which he doesn't talk about, he
doesn't desire praise or recogni-
tion.


According to employees, he
is a kind and loving boss, who
prays with those he works with
when they need support.
He gave job opportunities to
whom many considered unwor-
thy. when other's doubted them
... he gave them a chance, and
out of respect for him, many
have and continue to do excel-
lent work because of the trust
he placed in their ability.
He is a man who not only
helped with the cleanup of
Hurricane Charley but also was
awarded for his efforts.
Only those closely working
with him at that time, knew he
slept on a mat on his office floor
for three weeks to be available
24/7 for anyone who needed
him during Hurricane Charley
crisis ... he still held fast to his
obligations to the county and its
needs, all while two other hurri-
canes also came our way.
So you see, Commissioner
Grady Johnson, although you
cannot see the man that I see,
you are missing an opportunity
to have a great working rela-
tionship with a person whom I
know and many others know to
be a hard-working, honest,
good man, whom you may not
always agree with, but will
always be fair, and true to his
ethical responsibilities.
It is not I who is missing out
... but you. I forgive you. for all
you said, because as a Christian
the Lord tells me to forgive
those who have wronged ne ...
and if I have wronged you in
any way, I in turn ask for your
forgiveness. And our family
will place our trust in the Lord
like we have our entire lives
together and know that no mat-
ter what comes our way His
word is true and He is always
faithful, and it is not in man we
place our trust but in God's
word, His heart and His good
and faithful love ... and above
all else His saving grace.
I hope one day you can find
the peace that I have in know-
ing that no matter what hap-
pens. The Lord gave us this
opportunity in the County at the
exact time we needed it ... and
when He is done with us here,
He will open another door for

Poi Barns, Fences Could Need Permit


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
A new rule which could cause
people building pole barns to
get a permit didn't sit well with
quite a few county residents.
It was part of the zoning
agenda at last week's meeting
of the Hardee County Com-
mission which had people
aroused.
It seems Hardee County had
to amend its Comprehensive
Land Development Code and
did so by preparing an ordi-
nance to change the portion.
Section 5.01.011 relative to
floodplains.
Planning Director Kevin
Denny explained the change.
mandated by the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA).
A change in Florida Statures
604.50 was approved by the
Florida Legislature in 2011 in
regard to Title XXXV Agricul-
ture, Horticulture and Animal
Industry, and specifically rela-
tive to nonresidential farm
buildings and farm fences. It
was passed by the Senate and
House of Representatives over
the Governor's veto on March
24, 2011 and became law then.
It says, "notwithstanding any
other law to the contrary, any
nonresidential farm building or
farm fence is exempt from the
Florida Building Code, and any
county or municipal code or
fee, EXCEPT for code provi-
sions implementing local, state
or federal floodplain regula-
tions."
It goes on to say that "the
term nonresidential farm build-
ing means any temporary or
permanent building or support
structure and may include, but
is not limited to a barn, green-
house, shade house, farm office,
storage building or poultry
house."
Denny said the county had no
choice, but was required to
comply with the law as it
applied to any nonresidential
farm building or fence which
would be built within the
FEMA-declared floodplain
maps for the county.
Commissioner Grady John-
son said rural Hardee was pay-
ing for what had been done
along the coast with extensive
,-draining for development. He
!:said the FEMA people needed
to stay up in Washington and
not designate control over
structures ,they didn't know
anything about and weren't
covered by FEMA. "I don't like'
it," he said.
Commissioner Rick Knight
asked how it would be deter-
mined if a potential nonresiden-
tial farm building or fence was
in a flood plain. Denny said it
would be by a simple survey
showing where the topical flood
line was on that property. He
said he had only had two
requests in two years from


property owners.
Commissioner Dale Johnson
asked what would happen if the
commission voted no on the
Land Development Code
change. Denny said he under-
stood it would affect the coun-
ty's eligibility for the national
flood insurance program. "It's a
dictate to stay in the program.
We are required to do it." said
Denny. The county could be
more restrictive, but not less
restrictive than the state man-
date, he added.
In response to a question
from the audience. Denny also
said it would not change what
the county has been doing for
20 years as far as flood plains
and houses.
Nancy Craft suggested the
county write to FEMA and have
someone come and explain why


it was necessary. Commissioner
Sue Birge said she didn't be-
lieve "FEMA much cares what
we think."
Gary Delatorre pleaded that
the commission didn't have to
make a decision immediately
and suggested getting more
information on it Grady John-
son agreed the decision should
be postponed. "Most ot the peo-
ple here did not giet one ounce
of help from FFNMA during ithe
hurricanes. I'm suspicious. 1
don't like it."
Denny reiterated that it was
in the Florida Building Code
and his office would have to
follow it, but had no problem
asking a FEMA representative
come explain it.
After a bit more discussion,
the matter was tabled to attempt
to get more information.


Museum Matters

OUR CHRISTMAS WISH LIST
Here it is weeks before Thanksgiving and the stores are begin-
ning to fill up with their Christmas merchandise and decorations.
The toy aisles are starting to fill to capacity, and those special
boxed gift items that only appear during the holidays are every-
where! You know the ones, the hot-chocolate mug sets, packages
of multi-tools, shaving lotion and more for dad.
The decorated tins of popcorn, cookies and candies line the
store shelves waiting for eager shoppers. The holiday commercials
have started, too, and towns are quickly getting their holiday deco-
ration up for all to see!
And all this brings us to our Christmas Wish List!
Remember growing up and getting the Sears toy catalog,
appropriately titled the "Wish Book?" I used to look at it for hours,
circling what I wanted, dog-earing the pages. I usually never got
the items, but they were on my wish list nonetheless.
The Ciacker Trail Museum has a "Wish List," too!
Number one on our list is the expansion of the museum. We
have the architectural plans drawn tip and are accepting financial
donations to help make our dream a reality. Perhaps some generous
person or anonymous giver would also like to see our museum
expand. Donations small and large are always appreciated!
We can always use extra display cases. Perhaps you have
replaced cases in your business and would like to donate your old
ones to us? We can definitely use them.
We could use two mannequins, a male and a female, to display
military uniforms and pioneer clothes within the museum.
We would love some live poinsettias to grace our entryway
and to plant around the museum after the holidays. Perhaps a few
live plants will just magically ''appear" on the doorstep of the
museum one day! .
A computer set up forgenealogists to work on their research
would be wonderful.
A custom-made entry welcome mat emblazed with "Welcome
to the Cracker Trail Museum" would be a nice addition to our facil-
ity, too.
We have so many people come into the museum who are sim-
ply amazed at what all we have, and I feel we are truly blessed to
be able to maintain such a nice facility for our citizens. But, it never
hurts to do a little "wishing" during the holidays!
My dad once said, "If you're gonna dream, dream big!" The
Cracker Trail Museum has big dreams for the future! Perhaps
you'd like to make a few of our dreams come true so that we may
continue to honor the past and expand for the future.
The Cracker Trail Museum is open Monday-Friday, 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m. We are closed on the weekend and major holidays.
Please feel free to stop by or give us a call at 735-0119.
Happy holidays!

Athletic Foundation Starts Hall of Fame


Hardee Wildcat history and
tradition was lauded recently
with the selection of the inaugu-
ral recipients to the Hardee
Athletic Hall of Fame which
was created and put together by
the Hardee Athletic Foundation.
Hall of Fame candidates were
recommended by the foundation
members. Recipients were
selected based on their commu-
nity involvement with youth,
leadership roles and ultimate
impact on Hardee County athlet-
ics.
The evening event took place
at the Bobcat Den at Wauchula
Elementary and began with a
presentation of colors by Hardee
High School Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps.
A prime rib dinner followed,
served by the Hardee High Key
Club members and sponsor
Filomena Atchley.
The recipients were inducted
into the Hall of Fame by emcee
Derrel Bryan, a former superin-
tendent of schools.
Bryan's personal knowledge
of the recipients and stories
given to him by those having
coached and worked with the
award winners offered a heart-
felt sentiment accompanying a
visual presentation documenting
the history of each individual's
legacy.
The presentations were fol-
lowed by a silent auction to help
raise funds for the foundation.
The five inductees to this
year's Hall of Fame were Doyle
E. Carlton Jr.; Bob Martin; Dr.
Earnest Palmer; Leon Sharp;


Former Superintendent Derrel Bryan introduced the


inductees.

and Dunning Terrell.
Carlton was a longtime sup-
porter of Hardee athletics and
donated property to build
Hardee High School and the
baseball stadium along with the
Hardee Recreation Complex
just north of the high school
where swimming and softball
athletes participate in their
sports.
Martin was a longtime varsi-
ty football coach and retired as
the winningest coach in Hardee
football history. In all, he spent
10 years on the DeSoto High


sidelines and 18 at Hardee,
where his record was 152-37
and included 4A Coach of the
Year in 1995, a pair of state run-
ner-up teams and regional
championships.
Palmer founded the Hardee
County Youth Football League
and helped many athletes get
their start throughout his career.
Terrell was a longtime boys'
varsity basketball coach before
leaving to start the basketball
program at then South Florida
Community College.
Sharp was a former varsity

football coach who impacted
many young people lives
throughout the community. The
local YMCA is named after
him.
Families of all inductees were
present and recognized by foun-
dation members.
Over 150 guests attended this
celebration honoring these men
who epitomized the Hardee
Wildcat Soirit and who con-


tribute so much to their com-
munity.
The Hardee County Athletic
Foundation's purpose is to
enhance and supplement athlet-
ics in Hardee County.
The Hardee Athletic Foun-
dation accomplishes this
through providing funding for
athletes to attend ACT or SAT
preparations, funding an aca-
demic coach at the high school


to work with athletes, sponsor-
ing athletes' participation in
specialized camps, assisting
with college application fees,
and providing other supplemen-
tal funding for athletes.
It is the intent of the Foun-
dation to ensure that Hardee
County athletes are not only
competitive on the field but also
in life and these five men epito-
mized those ideals.

Qutta The Woods
By Tony Young
Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission


GIVE THANKS FOR HUNTING SEASON!
November means the 2012-13 huntin' season is in full swing.
In this month's column, I cover almost everything you need to
know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second
phase of mourning and white-winged dove season.
The first thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident
hunting license. Non-residents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or
$151.50 for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one of Florida's many wildlife management
areas, you'll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but don't
forget to study the brochure for the specific area you plan to hunt,
because dates, bag limits and rules differ greatly from area to area.
The general gun season runs Nov. 3-Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. I-
Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun
season runs Nov. 17-Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day
(Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the
season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17.
Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler five inches
or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer
permit. On private lands, the daily bag limit for deer is two, but
during some quota hunts on WMAs, the bag limit is only one deer,
and in some cases, there are antler restrictions, so read the particu-
lar WMA brochure before you hunt.
The highly anticipated antlerless deer season, often called
"doe week," is Nov. 17-23 (Thanksgiving week) in zones A and C,
and it always runs Dec. 26-Jan. 1 (Christmas week) in zones B and
D.
During doe week, the daily bag limit is one buck and one doe,
or two bucks. You may not take two does in one day like you can
during archery season, and spotted fawns are never legal game. By
the way, WMAs do not have an antlerless deer season.
If you hunt with deer dogs anywhere in Florida, special rules
and registration requirements may apply, so call the FWC for
details.
Fall turkey season in Zone A is Nov. 17-Jan. 6. In zones B and
C, it runs Dec. 1-Jan. 27 and Nov. 3-Dec. 30, respectively. And in
Zone'D, fall turkey season is Nov. 22-25 and Dec. 8-Jan. 13, except
for Holmes County, where there is no fall turkey season.
Only bearded turkeys and gobblers are legal game; you must
have a turkey permit ($10 for residents; $125 for non-residents) to
hunt them. The bag limit is one bird per day, and a total of two dur-
ing the archery, crossbow, muzzleloading gun and fall turkey sea-
sons combined.
Quail season runs statewide Nov. 10-March 3, and the daily
bag limit is 12.
Shooting hours for deer, turkey and quail are a half-hour
before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. All legal rifles, shotguns,
muzzleloaders, bows, crossbows and pistols arelegal for taking
these resident game animals during the general gun, antlerless deer,
fall turkey and quail seasons.
Snipe hunting in Florida ranks second in the nation in number
of birds harvested each year. and the season always runs Nov. 1-
Feb. 15 statewide. The second phase of the mourning and white-
winged dove season also comes in this month and runs Nov. 10-25.
Shooting hours for migratory game birds are one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset. The bag limit for snipe is eight; for doves, the bag
limit is 15.
SYou must get a no-cost migratory bird permit if you plan to
hunt snipe, doves or any other migratory game birds. The FWC
even provides an online "Dove Hunters' Hotline." which gives up-
to-date information on Florida's public dove fields. The address is
MyFWC.com/Dove. and it is updated every Thursday throughout
dove season. Information includes dove densities, previous week's
harvests and field conditions.
Whether small-game hunting with friends and family or hunt-
ing solo. going after that monster buck, boar hog or big tom.
November brings loads of great hunting opportunities.
Here's wishing you a happy Thanksgiving and a successful
hunting season!


Jerry Conerly was honored as Outstanding Local Florida Main
Street Program Supporter; the First Baptist Church of Wauchula
and Main Street Wauchula received recognition for hosting
"Hometown Holidays" by receiving Outstanding Special Event;
Shops on the Corner was acknowledged as Outstanding Business
of the Year; and finally, Main Street Wauchula's Economic
Restructuring Committee received a Merit Award for the "Main
Street Place" plan, an innovative incubator idea.
A special congratulations to all of those involved in making
our Main Street Wauchula Program such a huge success!
The Hardee County Chamber of Commerce Annual Golf
Tournament and Membership Dinner were huge successes! Raffle
prizes were won by golfers at the complimentary lunch following
the 18 hole, 4-man scramble hosted by Torrey Oaks Golf Course.
As the festivities continued into the night, Marcus Shackelford
was recognized at the Annual Dinner as this year's Mildred and
Doyle E. Carlton Jr. Citizenship Award recipient. The Chamber and
Mosaic recognized Jessica Newman, her board members, and all of
the businesses on Main Street by awarding Main Street Wauchula
Inc. as the Mosaic Business of the Year.
The membership meeting held at Torrey Oaks Golf & Country
Club included a Delmonico steak roast dinner provided by Darin
and Damen Hughes along with Java Cafe, a silent auction with
items graciously donated by our membership and live entertain-
ment supplied by John Miller. Without the generous support of our
membership, the Chamber could not continue its mission of "fos-
tering the growth and development of the business community of
the county."
The Community Redevelopment Agency has been working
expeditiously with Cobb Construction Inc., the lowest bidder, to
move forward with the train depot renovations. The south side of
the depot is already completed, and acts as the headquarters for
Peace River Explorations. The north side will be the site of PRE's


planned museum.
The train depot renovation is just one of the many ways that
the CRA is working diligently to ensure the beautification of
Wauchula.
The Industrial Development Authority passed a motion on
Oct. 9 that approved conditional commitment funding of $3 mil-
lion, subject to negotiation of an agreement with Continuum Labs
Inc. and final board approval of the contract. Continuum Labs will
be the anchor tenant of the Hardee County TechRiver Technology
Park.
In a recent Rural Area of Economic Concern meeting hosted
by Enterprise Florida, the technology industry was listed as a key
industry target. Additionally, the Oct. 27 issue of "The Economist"
further validated the viability of a technology park. In the special
report "Technology and Geography," it is stated that "a concentra-
tion of firms of the same industry in one location creates a pool of
specified labor that benefits both workers and employees."
The Hardee County Industrial Development Authority recog-
nizes the immense value of its technology infrastructure assets and
is currently the only rural county in Central Florida pursuing that
vision. By the IDA creating a technology park and finding an
anchor tenant, Hardee County will become an attractant for other
technology firms, thus creating quality high-paying careers for
Hardee County residents.
The Economic Development Office will continue to stay busy
in the coming months. The "Hoofin' It Off Main" trail ride will be
held this Saturday, and the Friday Night Live Bluegrass Jubilee
will be on Nov. 16.
The.Chamber is getting in the Christmas spirit a bit early and
already making plans for the Christmas parade, which will be on
Dec. 1.
The people of Hardee County are the future. Together we can
build a stronger community!

Legion building on Palmetto Street west of Hwy. 17.
On Wednesday, Nov. 14, the Wednesday Musicale will honor
veterans with refreshments at 3:30 p.m. at the Woman's Club build-
ing followed by a program of patriotic music and writings at 4 p.m.
at the First United Methodist Church of Wauchula.

The local American Legion Post is named after Herger
Williams, the first Hardee County soldier killed in World War I. He
was one of four brother, Herger, Lester, Ira and Dick, who grew up
in Oak Grove community.
Lester enlisted in the Army and went by train for training in
Georgia. Herger was only 16 or 17 and stowed away on the train.
He wanted to fight the Germans.
The Army contacted his parents and were going to send him
home, unless both parents gave their written permission for him to
join the Army under age 18. A grandfather or great-grandfather was
opposed, predicting the parents would never see him alive again.
Victor Irby, a nephew to Herger, said he fought in England and
France. Herger was wounded once by shrapnel, recovered in a hos-
pital and was sent back into battle in France. They were trying to
take out a German machine gun nest. Herger was shot and killed in
a wheat field in Fiance and buried in France. His body later was
sent to his parents in January 1921, and he was buried in Oak
Grove Cemetery.

Lance Armstrong is still a board member but has resigned as
chairman of Livestrong, his cancer-fighting charity.
He overcame cancer to win seven Tour de France bicycle rac-
ing titles, but they have been taken away because of likely using
performance-enhancing substances. He has decided not to fight
anti-doping allegations anymore and since has lost personal
endorsement deals from Nike, Anheuser-Busch, Trek bicycles and
Honey Stinger, reported Jim Vertuno of The Associated Press
recently in the Lakeland Ledger.

Opal Scarborough Knight of Wauchula served on the Hardee
County School Board from 1972 to 1984, when she was defeated
by Linda Clark. Opal's husband Doyle Knight served on the School
Board from 1960 to 1972 until he passed away from heart disease.
Opal Knight still has citrus and cattle, just like her husband.
Opal said her good friend Helen Nicholson of Wauchula
recently turned 97 and still lives independently. She recalls
Imogene Gilliard of Zolfo Springs reached the age of 98, and Etta
Wadsworth, Lewis Pace's grandmother, lived to 100. Opal is thank-
ful to God for her health and life.
There were four Scarborough brothers, Willie, Jay, Elbert and
Smiley. Three of the brothers at one time owned 18 contiguous sec-
tions of land, mostly in southeastern Hardee County. A section is
640 acres.

Fertilizer Plant Gets 2 Approvals


By JOAN SEAMAN
0' 7-e He'a c-Ad,,ocate
When all the discussions
were done, the proposed Bio-
Nitrogen biomass ferilizer got
initial appro als.
Final approval of a Special
Exception for it rests v.ith the
Hardee Count% Commission at
its e,,ening meeting next Thurs-
da\, Nov. 15, beginning at 6
pm
In last week'ss two meetings,
a resolution acknowledging tax
exempt bonds will be used to
build it and the Planning &
Zoning approval of a Special
Exception went through.
BONDS
At its morning meeting last
week. the Hardee County Com-
mission heard from local attor-
ney Steven Southwell and bond
attorney Brian Watson about the
intent of the 5150 million bonds
to be issued through the Florida
Development Finance Corp.
The county has an ongoing
interlocal agreement with
FDFC on bonds it issues for a
variety of projects. The original
agreement of April 12, 1994
allows for "activation whenever
that corporation-has financing
to function within the limits of
Hardee County." The present
resolution is an addition or join-
der to the original agreement.
State law says a county must
be advised of proposed spend-
ing in its jurisdiction, and in
turn, asks that the county ac-
knowledges that it has been
advised. "It's part of the re-
quired public hearing process,"
said Watson.
It does not ask the county to
approve the project for which
the money is being allotted, and
the county has no liability or
responsibility for any of the
indebtedness. The risk comes to
the people who buy the tax-free
bonds. They will be repaid by
FDFC when BioNitrogen
makes its payments on the
bonds.
The present issuance is for
BioNitrogen to build its pro-
posed fertilizer plant. BB&T
Capital Market in Miami has
signed an agreement to be bond
placement agency for Bio-
Nitrogen.
Fort Green resident Henry
Kuhlman argued that it was
"putting the cart before !the
horse," in approving the sale of
bonds before BioNitrogen has
been thoroughly vetted and
proven.
Frank Segredo, BioNitrogen
corporate development officer,


explained later that it takes ,e\-
eral months to get the bond
process accomplished and the
company hopes to be selling
bonds and break ground on the
project b\ earl\ 2013.
The commission approved
the addition to the interlocal
agreement \sith FDFC on a 4-1
\ ote, ith Commissioner Grlad\
Johnson opposing it.
P&Z
In the evening meeting, the
Planning & Zoning Board spent
wkell o\er an hour asking qlues-
tions on the proposed Major
Special Exception and concept
development plan "for a bio-
mass-fed urea fertilizer manu-
facturing operation on 40.20
acres zoned A-1 (Agriculture I)
on lands in the Rural Center
Future Land Use District."
The BioNitrogen Corp.,
headquartered in Doral, was
represented by Segredo and
representatives from the
Kimley-Horn engineering firm
which will handle landscaping,
stormwater, traffic and other
external issues.
County planning assistant
Joshua Cheney presented the
seven-page staff report thor-
oughly outlining the proposed
project, including the driveway
and rail spur access, the 9,000
square-foot gasification areas,
14,250 square feet of urea oper-
ations equipment area, adminis-
tration and control -buildings,
warehouses for up to 15,000
tons of material, urea silos,
parking lot, fire water storage
tank, chain link fencing, land-
scape buffering and stormwater
management pond/facilities.
P&Z members were all active
in the discussion, asking fre-
quent questions. Led by
Chairman Mike Thompson, the
board also includes Roger
Conley, Shawna Lambert, John
Deer, Ralph Arce, Oscar Ortiz,
Gordon Norris and Mark White.
Among their many questions,
assurance that the biomass sup-
ply for the plant would not
include solid waste materials
was the main issue. Thompson
asked that the first condition to
approve the proposed plant be
amended to say, "Biomass
materials shall be restricted to
residual agricultural and vege-
tative biomass solid waste. This
.shall-not inclade.. general solid
municipal waste.'"
Two residents had spoken on
the issue in the morning meet-
ing as they would be unable to
attend the evening session.
An Alderman Road resident


"relai!\e\ clos to the prolect"
said "I think it' .1 wonderful

mission and P&Z Board. pinia-
ril reheariing problems \\wth

Projects and other develop-
ments sponsored by the Indus-
trial Development Authority
and questioning what materials
would be used in the Bio-
Nitrogen Plant. "DO NOT
OPEN THE DOOR FOR
IMPORTED GARBAGE OR
ANYTHING THAT STINKS.
If you can't put it next door to
your kids or grandchildren, then
keep it out of Hardee County."
Segredo said the urea fertiliz-
er process was created by three
professors at Texas Tech Uni-
versity near Lubbock, Texas,
over a span of six years. It cre-
ates colorless, odorless, acid
neutral high nitrogen fertilizer
which the company will pro-
duce and sell to distributors
locally and across the region. It
uses only vegetaive material,
any thing that grows and has
roots.
Original plans were to build
the first plant near Lubbock, but
Florida was attractive because
of its ready supply of vegetative
material. Florida has the prod-
uct, workforce and land. Since
the company was well received
into the Hardee County com-
munity it will place its inaugu-
ral plant here. As it succeeds, an
additional plant could be built
as the entire Davis property is
over 500 acres and there is
room for expansion.
Asked whether the company
was sure the process would
work, Segredo said the gasifica-
tion process has been used to
produce synthetic gas for 40 to
50 years, this process is just
refined specifically for urea fer-
tilizer production. It has passed
the first stage of patent approval
and the company is not sure it
will get the final patent ap-
provals as that would make it
available to the public. There
have already been requests
from Canada, India, Australia,


and other nations around the
wv world. to build plants there.

Material will not be stored in

There will be enough product to
keep the plant operating. It has
to be stored in open areas and
would be granulated or pel-
letized if necessary. At the max-
imum there would be a 60-90
day supply of vegetative matc-
rial.
The average salary for the 50-
52 plant employees will be
$10,000 over the county aver-
age of $28,000. Employees will
earn $38,000-$39,000 on the
24-7, 345-day a year operation.
That does not include ancillary
jobs, truckers, handlers, logis-
tics, said Segredo. An agree-
ment may be made with local
land clearing companies or tree
surgeons to deliver product to
the plant.
Any road/rail crossing such
as the spur involves the state
Department of Transportation.
It and other regulatory agencies,
such as Southwest Florida
Water Management District,
etc. will also have oversight on
the project.
Norris asked about the pro-
posed savings to local growers
of $75 a ton. Segredo clarified
that it would definitely be less
expensive, but BioNitrogen will
not be selling the product
directly but will distribute it to
wholesalers and thus on to the
growers.
Some residents were con-
cerned that if BioiNitrogen did
not succeed, the property would
be sold and someone else would
come in and then use solid
waste. materials. County .Plan-
nertKevin Denny explained that
the Special Exception was proj-
ect specific. If the property or
company changed hands, it
would require a new Special
Exception process.

Attorneys At Law

DEFINING DOMESTIC VIOLENCE
When someone states they have been charged with "domestic
violence," 'hat does this mean?
Pursuant to Florida law. "domestic violence" means any
assault. aggravated assault, battery, aggravated battery, sexual
assault. sexual battery. stalking, aggravated stalking, kidnapping,
false imprisonment. or any criminal offense resulting in physical
injury or death of one family or household member by another fam-
ily or household member.
'Family or household member" means spouses, former spous-
es, persons related by blood or marriage, persons who are present-
ly residing together as if a family or who have resided together in
the past as if a family, and persons who are parents of a child in
common regardless of whether they have been married.
With the exception of persons who have a child in common,
the family or household members must be currently residing or
have in the past resided together in the same single dwelling unit.
It is important to note there is no crime identified as "domes-
tic violence."
The law defines the relationship together with the specific
crimes listed above. This designation is important to law enforce-
ment and prosecutors because of arrest procedures, victims' rights,
bond amounts, applications for injunctions for protection, sentenc-
ing, and firearm possession, to name a few.
In the arena of family law, domestic violence is one of the fac-
tors listed in Florida Statutes, Chapter 61.13, which states that evi-
dence of domestic violence and child abuse is something the court
can consider in determining the best interest of the child with
regard to parental responsibility and timesharing. However, it is
also important to note that the law also requires the court to con-
sider evidence either parent has knowingly provided false informa-
tion to the court regarding domestic violence or child abuse.

O&A Win A Biblical Perspective


KNOWING GOD'S WILL
Q: How do you know when you are in the will of God?
How do you know when you went out of the will of God? If God
lays a vision upon your heart, how do you know when is the
right timing?
Signed, Not Sure
A: This is a question that crosses a lot of people's minds.
Because being in God's will is so important, people fear that they
have stepped out of the boundaries of His will. There is no GPS,
compass or sign to let us know which way to go, so we have to
move about checking our steps against the Word of God. His Word
is a lamp unto our feet and a light to our path..
Being in His will may not be easy, such as Jesus having to die
on the cross. It may require that you walk alone, stand for what you
believe, go against the crowd, or move out of your comfort zone.
But, His will is the safest place to be.
Remember God never tempts us with evil, contradicts His-
Word, asks us to break His commandments, work in confusion or
cause strife, nor does He work through fear. If you are experienc-
ing any of these, pray for God to show you the right way.
For everything there is a season. Just because God gives us a
dream or vision doesn't mean it is for now. Joseph had a dream, but
it took years to come to pass. Abraham was promised a child, but
it took years before he was born.
Because Abraham did not wait on God, it caused a lot of
heartache, and God was not glorified in the result. Make sure you
don't move out of God's timing, do not push doors open on your
own. If God promised it, He will bring it to pass. When it is the
right season everything will fall into place, doors will open, God
will bless, peace will abound and God will be glorified.

Well. football fans. it is November. This is the month that
.chrapionships are x on. Alabama looked to be out of the national
u'!:e chase last night but. as champions do, they pulled it out at the
end What an ending to a great game. especially! if \ou are a Tide
Fan. The\ should remain at the top spot. Kansas St. cruised to
another '.in and may be the most complete team in college foot-
ball. The Wildcats are outstanding in ever\ phase of the game. A
BCS National Championship Game between Alabama and Kansas
St. would be a great one for college football.
The BCS Standings should not change this week Oregon beat
Southern Cal and they are rightfully the third-best team at this
point Notre Dame will be at the undeserved spot of number four
A three-overtime win against Pitt, ,which lost at home to
Youngstown St., should put the Irish in perspective The\ pla\ a
weak schedule. Pitt lost by 24 points to Cincinnati also. The
Panthers missed a field goal that should have beaten Notre Dame
too.
The Gators didn't set the world on fire but came a%%wa\ with a
14-7 win over Missouri. The chances of Auburn beating Georgia,
which would hand the SEC East to the Gators, are slim and none.
So, it is win out and finish 11-1 then go to a good bowl, possibly a
BCS Bowl.
FSU travels to Virginia Tech for a Thursday night game. This
will be the Hokies' third straight loss. Beamer Ball must be getting
old in Blacksburg. The always overrated Hokies won't be given a
BCS Bowl in 2012 it looks.
Now lets look at this week's Bill O" Fare...................
1. La.-Lafayette at Florida Gators have a couple tune ups
before facing FSU. UF 34 ULL 7.
2. Kansas St. at TCU- Colin Klein continues his Heisman
Quest with a strong performance in Ft. Worth. Wildcats take care
of business. KSU 54 TCU 14.
3. Iowa St. at Texas- Horns Hook 'Em at Austin. Texas is
back in play for the Big 12 title. Only if cards fall their way but
they have improved to 7-2. Texas 35 Iowa St. 13.
4. Marshall at UAB- Herd wins for the second week in a row
to even its record to 5-5. QB Cato still leads the nation in passing.
Marshall 38 UAB 27.
5. Arkansas at South Carolina- Gamecocks still have enough
to have BBQ made of the Hogs at home. Not as good as Maurice's
though in Columbia. South Carolina 34 Arkansas 17.
6. West Virginia at Oklahoma St.- Cowboys lead the nation in
offense. WVU ranks 111 in defense though they have improved.
QB Geno Smith has fallen apart in the last three games. There has
to be something wrong with such a reversal. OSU 51 WVU 27.
7. Kansas at Texas Tech- Red Raiders back to winning ways
in Lubbock. TTU 44 Kansas 14.
8. Texas A&M at Alabama- Surging Aggies face their tough-
est SEC test. Tide has to get up for another challenge as well.
Alabama 35 TAMU 17.
9. Notre Dame at Boston College Boston College? Really?
Notre Dame 38 BC 0.
10. Mississippi St. at LSU- Poor Bulldogs will lose their 3rd
straight game after a great start. Tigers will be very angry this
week. LSU 34 MSU 14.
11. Baylor at Oklahoma- Baylor is dead last in defense in the
country. Baylor is number one in offense though. Oklahoma 56
Baylor 41.
12. Tulsa at Houston- Golden Hurricanes take the CUSA West
Title and improve to 8-2 with a win at Houston. Tulsa 44 Houston
23.
13. Missouri at Tennessee Tigers defense is the difference.
Missouri 24 Tennessee 16.
14. Georgia at Auburn Tigers give Gators no help. Georgia
37 Auburn 13.


15. Northern Colorado at Weber St.- Bears win their 4th game

LNC 31W \SU 17.
16. FSU at Virginia Tech Noles roll over Chokies. FSU 44
VPI 13.
17. Vanderbilt at Mississippi Both need that 6th win for a
bowl \'ands 33 Ole Miss 30.
18. Indianapolis at Jacksonville- Luck picks apart the Jags.
Colts 34 Jags 21.
19. Tennessee at Miami- Fish defense shuts down Titans.
Miami 30 Tennessee 13.
20. San Diego at Tampa- Bucs roll to another win. How about
that rookie running back! Good times for Tampa Bay! Tampa 35
San Diego 20.


There some congratulations due this time around.
The boys cross country team became district champions and the
girls were district runner-up.
The Junior High Wildcats persevered in repeating, for the fifth
time, as Heartland Conference champions, replacing their starting
quarterback and running back and barely missing a beat.
The varsity Hardee Wildcats went to DeSoto for the oldest
rivalry in the state and declared from the outside that they would
not be intimidated and came home with the victory. It would be
nice to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat against powerhouse
Fort Pierce Central for Senior Night in the concluding game of the
season at home this Friday night.

All other fall sports have concluded. Several swimmers went to
the regionals. The golf girls advanced to the regional level as well.
For golf, it's always an uphill battle against the coastal private
schools sometimes referred to as golf academies, as students go to
school half a day and pursue their sport the rest of the time.
Volleyball drew the toughest game in district competition,
going against eventual district and regional champion Auburndale
in the first round.
JV football ended on a down note in losing its final two games
of the season. Eleven of these fellows moved up to learn the varsi-
ty attitude and system in the final games of the season. They will
have to earn their way onto the varsity and some may return to the
JV for another season.

Now it's time to turn attention to winter sports, starting with
girls basketball, which is in a tournament at Dixie Hollins High this
week. The regular season starts next week.
It won't be long before girls and boys soccer begins. Of course,
early game are all on the road while the football Wildcats are using
their stadium.
Boys basketball, junior high hoops and girls weightlifting will
all get going after Thanksgiving.

Hardee scored first and never

though DeSoto made it tense in
the third quarter when it cut the
Wildcat lead to one point.
The Cats received to start the
game and had to punt after
picking up one first down.
DeSoto had trouble moving
the ball also and was quickly
forced to punt back to the
Wildcats.
Hardee took over at the
DeSoto 49 and began moving
downfield.
Quarterback Kris Johnson
found Derrick Graham open for
a 33-yard completion that

Johnson threw a pass to Holley
in the left flat which he took all
the way into the end zone for
the touchdown. The Alvarez

quarter.
DeSoto's next drive ended in
a punt after Keyon Brown
sacked quarterback Reggie
Jones on a third-down pass
attempt.

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages' of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...
75 YEARS AGO
The Wauchula High School
freshman football team, known
as the "Kaxampus Kittens,"
successfully triumphed over the
Avon Park junior high eleven
last Friday night by a 13 to zero
score.
An attempt to rob the safe at
the high school building here
last Friday night was foiled by
Prof. J.K. Chapman as he
entered the building to deposit
receipts of the Wauchula
Freshman-Avon Park Junior
High School football game.
This is National Art Week.
The high school here is get-
ting out their own publication
of Wildcat Scratches this year.
Their first edition was a fine
one and we commend the staff
for their good work in printing
their own little newspaper.

The School Board recently recognized students who had perfect scores on the 2011-
12 Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in math or reading. Third graders recog-
nized for math were (front, from left) Nabiha Iqbal, Kimberly Walton and Justin Cole and
fourth graders were Mariela Badillo and Kein Knight; (back) third grader Huriel Cortez-
Olivera and fourth graders Nestor Alvarenga, Miguel Velasco- Gonzalez, Elias Ramirez
and Jesus Jurado, all for math, and Angelina Sanchez with perfect scores in both read-
ing and math for the second year in a row. Other third graders scoring perfect in read-
ing were Kaylee Gibson and Abby Duke, and fourth graders Kasondra Puente-Venegas,
Dylan Davis and Jacob Henderson for math while Enrique Velazquez and Sydnie
Steiner were perfect in reading. With the students is Superintendent David Durastanti.


50 YEARS AGO
Hardee County will continue
to have a county fair if the vot-
ers who cast ballots Tuesday
have anything to say about it.
But it was a might close thing.
The issue skinned through by
less than 200 votes out of a total
vote of 1,481. A total of 840
persons in the county voted for
county sponsorship of the
Hardee County Fair and 641
opposed it.
Lester Ebert has been re-
elected to another term as a
chairman of the Zolfo Springs
Town Council. W.L. Anderson,
a newly elected councilman, is
vice-chairman.
25 YEARS AGO
Sherri White, 17-year-old
daughter of Barry and Laura
White of Wauchula, was named
Hardee Senior High School
1987 Homecoming Queen
Friday night at the Hardee
Stadium.
Ivory Evers was sworn in as
mayor of Zolfo Springs Mon-
day night and Mike Wilkinson,
John Shivers and Jim Farmer
were sworn in as councilmen.


Immediately following, Wilk-
inson was elected chairman of
the council and Shivers was
elected vice-chairman.
The Hardee County Jaycees
learned by experience as they
successfully staged their first
fund-raising canoe race ever
down the Peace River this past
Saturday. This was a new ven-
ture to the eager Hardee Jay-
cees, and they responded well
and staged a good show. Todd
Durden and Roy Shaw sur-
prised everyone but themselves
as they toured down the river in
a time of 201.16 to win the race.
10 YEARS AGO
With just a little over one
week on the job, the new mayor
of Zolfo Springs is poised to
name a new chief of police.
Marilyn Aker will present her
recommendation to the full


Town Council
tonight in the
meeting room.


for approval
Civic Center


Four-laning of U.S. 17
through Wauchula has begun.
At least, the preliminary stages
are under way, as WRS Con-
tracting crews began Sept. 23 to
remove rock and contaminated
soil along the old CSX railroad
bed which will become the
northbound lanes of U.S. 17.
The recreation center at
Pioneer Park was the setting for
Yasmin C. Ramirez, daughter of
Elias Ramirez and Rosa Y.
Villegas. She turned 3 years old
on Oct. 16. The theme of the
party was Disney Princess, and
the honoree and her guests
enjoyed mole, rice, beans, pota-
to salad, Jello and a birthday
cake with her picture.

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
The character of even a child
can be known by the way he
acts whether what he
does is pure and right.
Proverbs 20 11 (TLB)

FRIDAY
Do not store up for your-
selves treasure on earth,
where it can grow rusty and
moth-eaten, and thieves
break in to steal it. Store up
treasure in heaven. ... For
where your treasure is, there
will your heart be also.
Matthew 6:19-20 (NEB)

SATURDAY
"Because he love Me," says
the Lord, "I will rescue him. I
will protect him, for he
acknowledges My name. He
will call upon Me, and I will
answer him; I will be with
him in trouble, will deliver
him and honor him. With
long life I will satisfy him, and
show him My salvation."
Psalm 91:14-16 (NIV)

SUNDAY
Jesus said, "How difficult it is
for those who have great
possessions to enter the
kingdom of God (Heaven)! A
camel could squeeze
through the eye of a needle
more easily than a rich man
could get into the kingdom
of God."
Luke 18:24-25 (PME)

MONDAY
God says, "I created you
and have cared for you since
before you were ever born. I
will be your God throughout
your lifetime until your
hair is white with age. I made
you, and I will care for you. I
will carry you along and save
you."
Isaiah 46:3b-4 (NLT)

TUESDAY
For the love of Christ Jesus
leaves us no choice. ... His
purpose in dying (for us) is
that men should cease to
live for themselves, and live
for Him who for their sakes
died and was raised to life
eternal.
II Corinthians 5:14 (NEB)

WEDNESDAY
And now, finally, God
answered Job from the vio-
lent eye of a storm. He said,
"Why do you confuse the
issue? ... I have some ques-
tions for you and I want
straight answers Where
were you when I created the
earth? Tell me, since you
know so much!"

Greetings trom Fort Green'
As usual there is alw ays a lot
going on at Fort Green Baptist.
Our pastor, Brother Steve, sa\s
he has gained weight because of
all the good food and, once
again, we had some mighty
good refreshments last Sunday
night. Gulf State Quartet and
the Gospel Jubilee put on a fan-
tastic concert and afterward 'we
adjourned to the fellowship
hall!
If the attendance was down at
your church, it was because
they heard about the good
music planned for Fort Green.
We were very pleased with the
attendance.
Little Emmalynn Chester
attended our Fall Festival with
her mama and grandma, Cindy
Coker. It does not seem possi-
ble that she is already 1 year old
and really walking good.
Most everyone has heard
about Valerie Best's bad acci-
dent last week. She is in Lake-
land Regional Medical Center
in serious condition. Also, Lynn
Revell was given instructions
from his doctor not to do any-
thing. He could walk out on the
porch but no work, as he is
waiting to be scheduled for
open-heart surgery. Brother A.
O. Hendry is still recovering but
mighty weak. Betty Walker is
feeling bad and was too weak to
attend church.
There are plenty of others in
need of prayer, and we would
appreciate your remembering
these in prayer.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Mary
Lou Revell. She has lived in
Georgia for the past few years
but was born and raised here.
She was laid to rest last Tues-
day at the Fort Green Baptist
Cemetery.
Mike and Randy Davis and
others fished last Saturday
morning and caught 178 mullet.
I am sure we will be having a


tish ir\ in the near future to
benefit the vouth. The fish tries
are lots of fun plus good eating!
There are plenlt of oranges
on the ground in Fort Green.
\We got quite a bit of rain one
da\ while \we \ere on vacation
and then had a monster \\ind. It
did not seem to cull anyone, as
e\ery grove you drive by has
plenty of fruit on the ground.
Also, besides this problem,
the fruit seems to be small and
the price is not good. If. you
have a contract you need to
thank your Lord. I have been
told the going price for earlies
is S1.17 a pound.
If you purchased a barbecue
ticket from the 4-H clubs, this
Saturday is the day you pick up
your meal at the fair ground.
Just drive through the breeze-
way in the exhibit hall and the
youth will have your meal
ready.
Avie and Allen Eures and
Gavin and Kaylee Hogenauer
attended Kayson Rosenberg's
1-year birthday party at Pioneer
Park last Sunday afternoon. He
is the grandson of Tim and
Teresa Rosenberg.
Ladies Night Out is coming
soon to Fort Green Baptist. If

Dear Editor:
Friday Night Live had an
excellent turnout and fun for all.
It is nice to see people I have
not seen in a while'and get out
of my apartment once a month.
I wish FNL would have more
activities for adults like when
they had clues hidden at the
stores and we had to guess the
mystery quest.
The kids have bouncy houses
and games and listen to music.
Perhaps even more people
would attend if there was more
to look forward to.
I would like to say farewell to
Nellie Garcia and employees at
the Wauchula office of Seacoast
Bank when they close their
doors on Dec. 7. The Seacoast
branch in Arcadia will still be
open.
The Seacoast Bank has been

there across from Hess since
May 2006. We have had First
Union. BancFlorida. Big Lake
and Naples First before
Seacoast.
Nellie Garcia has always
been friendly and businesslike.
and I have come to admire her
professionalism as well as all
the past employees there.
The bank has participated in
Friday Night Live being spon-
sors and also collected money
for Muscular Dystrophy in
these past years.
I wanted to write a letter in
the paper to tell Hardee County
how much I will miss Nellie
and all the employees at
Seacoast and how well I have
been treated there.

Kids: Find Wildlife



Hidden In Your Yard


By JESSICA B. THERRIAULT
Secla! To The Herald-Advocate
Fall weather is settling in and many
animals have begun or will soon start
foraging for winter. But it is still quite
warm in the Sunshine State, and
wildlife is frisky and abundant, espe-
cially in your backyard.
Take a walk outside. Look in
bushes, shrubs, grass, on flow- ,\
ers, in and under potted ,
plants and on the walls of
your house. And, don't for- -
get to look up. Birds are BACK
perched in trees and soaring L /*
in the sky.
How many critters can you
find?
While on my own backyard safari I
saw a peculiar moth that didn't look
like a moth at all. At first glance, it
looks like a hummingbird but smaller
and doesn't have a beak. It hovers over
flowers and flutters its wings a million
times a second just like hummingbirds,
has a proboscis or antennae that sucks
nectar out of flowers, more than two
legs and an insect-like body.
I didn't view it for long because it
zoomed off quicker than I could say
hummingbird moth!
The backyard is an oasis of life. And,
just because the sun goes down doesn't
mean the critters go to sleep. Nighttime
brings the sounds of raccoons shuffling
leaves while foraging for food, crickets
chirping and frogs croaking as the
human world drifts off to sleep. In cer-
tain seasons, dusk brings the tiny flash-


es of fireflies.
Make a list of the animals youfind.
In my yard, I have fluttering zebra long-
wings and three zebra longing cater-
pillars, Eastern black swallowtails, two
big golden orb weavers, a vulture glid-
ing above, chattering squirrels, crickets,
black swallowtail butterfly caterpillars
chewing my parsley plant, snails
S and the list goes on.
1. Can you identify a unique
/ fact about the animals on
1 your list? For example, zebra
'ARD longwing caterpillars' main
food source is the passion-
flower vine. Young caterpillars
chomp and chew on the vine until
it's time to transform into the beautiful
adult yellow-and-black striped longwing
that flutters in your garden, looking for
nectar plants that feed them.
Safety tip: While searching, be sure
not to handle or touch anything if you
aren't sure if it is harmless. If searching
under logs, be sure to roll the log
toward you in case there are any slither-
ing creatures living underneath. Rolling
it toward you allows any snake (usually
the small, harmless ringneck, redbelly,
earth or brown snakes) to slither away
from you. Wear bug spray, since
skeeters are still biting, and have fun!

Kids, Jessica Basham knows all about
animals! She works for the state Fish &
Wildlife Conservation Commission.

month. You can ask her questions at

The program is not regulatory
and such sites would not be
reported. Sears said in response
to a question about that. She
said landowners would not be
eligible for evaluation and
cleanup loans or grants if they
caused the pollution.
Commissioner Grady John-
son was reluctant, saying a
good faith effort could be dev-
astating to a landowner who
might then have to finance
cleanup themselves if the
grant/loan monies ran out or
they were not eligible for some
reason.


Most purchasers want an
assessment, said some commis-
stoners
Henry Kuhlman said his
request for information on a
Brovnfield assessment on the
Peace River Electric Coopera-
tile Building on U.S. 17 and
REA Road had not yielded any
information as asked county
attorney Ken Evers to answer
the question since he is also
board attorney for the Industrial
Development Authority which
recently purchased the PRECo
property. Evers said he was not
the attorney handling the prop-
erty transfer and did not know if
a pre-purchase assessment was
done.
The commission voted unani-
mously to work with CFRPC on
making the Brownfield monies
available to local residents.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-approved a proclamation
of November 2012 as National
Hospice and Palliative Care
Month in Hardee County as
requested by Becky McIntyre


ot Good Shepherd Hopice.
which provided compassionate
care last ear to over 40 Hardee
Count\ residents with terminal
illnesses.
-approved application for
an Edward B\rne Memorial
Justice Assistance grant this
year of 53.392 for the Sheriff's
Office to purchase lasers.
-approved a housing lien
subordination policy for people
getting housing rehabilitation
grants and also responsible for a
primary mortgage or loan. Each
one with a loan and housing
subordination grant will be
brought before the commission.
It is a small percentage of the
county's 400 housing liens han-
dled by the local Community
Development Office.
-approved a part-time cus-
todial position of 20 hours a
week for the Hardee County
Sheriff's Office. Sheriff Arnold
Lanier explained that the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement had mandated that
trustees could not have access
to any office or the squad room
where state and federal NCIC/-
FCIC information could be ob-


tamed from a computer data
base.
Although a breach of security
has not happened in Hardee
CouLnt\. it has apparently hap-
pened else here and has result-
ed in the no access rule for
trustees, said Lanier. Building
and Grounds director Danny
Weeks said a person already on
part-time staff would become
full-time to take up the addi-
tional duties of sweeping. mop-
ping and empty ing garbage
cans in office and squad areas.
-appro\ed the write-off of
5229.601.67 in unpaid emer-
gency management bills for the
fiscal year 2009-10 in accord
with auditing requirements.
Fire Chief Robert Clayton said
the bills represent about 32 per-
cent of the revenue and would
still be pursued, perhaps using a
different method than a collec-
tion agency. which has not been
successful.
-was advised by Commis-
sion Chairman Minor Bryant
that people wanting to give
handouts to the commission
should do so several days
beforehand through the County


Manager's administrative sec-
retary so commissioners would
have time to study them before
the meeting, not during the
meeting when other people
were speaking.
-approved a budget amend-
ment to correctly reflect the
total project costs of $231.000
for road and culvert work being
done on Bostick Road and
upcoming work in Knollswood
subdivision using hol-mix dou-
ble microseal instead of the
double chip rock overlay used
recently on Maude, Vandolah.
Airport and other roads which
are no longer dusty but are
experiencing turn failures and
deterioration.
The Knollwood ad Recrea-
tion Center loop paving should
cost about $47,000 and be.done
under a piggy-back with a St.
John's County project, said Ken
Wheeler, county engineer and
director of the Road and Bridge
department. The piggy-back
demonstration will be done at
significant savings, less than $4
a square yard as compared to
the usual $6 square yard in
other paving, said Wheeler.

Of The Herald-Advocate
The 2012 season ended on a
low note for the Hardee junior
Varsity football team.
The 'Cats lost their final two
games, at Tampa Jesuit on Oct.
18 and a rescheduled game
against Sebring last Thursday
21-12.
Finishing with a 4-3 record,
the JV has not had the best of its
seasons.
"Last week's game was
delayed 30 minutes due to light-
ning, which seemed to play a
factor in over half the games we
played this season," comment-
ed JV Head Coach Rod Smith.
"Our thanks go out to the par-
ents, coaches, players and
administration for making this
season possible. Radars, re-
scheduling and rain seemed to
rule our season. Overall, we had
a fine bunch of kids we hope to
either see on the varsity or JV in
the future," said Smith, in
behalf of his assistant coaches,
Barry White, Todd Bolin and
Van Crawford.
Moving up to get some expe-
rience with the varsity for the
balance of its season are sophs
Jordan Jones, C.K. Douglas,
Ryan Ramirez, Deshawndre
McMillian, Roberto Torres,
Tomas Gomez and Roby Paris,
and freshmen Chauncey Rivers.
Trequan Holley and Andrew
Hagans.
Against Sebring. the junior
"Cats and Streaks played a fair-
ly even first quarter with
Sebring up 7-6 when it ended.
Hardee added a six-pointer in
the second quarter, and held a
12-7 advantage until midway
through the fourth quarter.
when Sebring added a pair of
tallies and PATs to win the
game 21-12.
Tackles were recorded for
Ramirez. McMillian. Douglas.

SEEDS
FROM
T'THE
SSOWER
MWh eitA Gudo 000
tetc. GeorgI


A mountaineer came to town
and saw some strange fruit.
"What's that?" he asked,
"A tangerine," said the grocer.
"Try one."
"Nope," he answered. "I've got
some tastes now I can't satisfy.
I'm not aimin' to take on more."
Do you have tastes you can't
satisfy? Maybe that's because
you've rejected the Lord from your
life.
Without Him, you're on a road
that leads to ever-increasing
dissatisfaction, emptiness and
frustration. You become a hollow
soul, a zero with the edges rubbed
off.
There was a poet like that, but he
turned to the Lord. He testified,"He
satisfieth the longing soul."

What Do You Learn in an Art Class?
by Jim Revell, HHS Art Teacher


The common misconception of Art
is that classes are comprised of crafts
projects designed for amusement
and the holiday seasons. Crafts
can rise to being a form of art as
the level of aesthetic awareness
and, knowledge heightens. And
that is what we do in Art class.
Students often take an Art class
looking for an easy "A" or because
they like to draw cartoons out of
magazines. Students generally
believe that fancy tattoos, Japanese
anime, and kitsch drawings are the
height of personal artistic expression.
Students are often surprised to find
that creativity can be learned. They are
also surprised to find out that Art has
strong academic roots in philosophy,
culture, history, and religion. Often
students aren't aware that they are not
the first to have a new or radical idea!
Fortunately, Art is a class where
divergent thinking is highly prized
and rewarded. In art classes mistakes
are expected and appreciated as
possible new avenues to a solution.
Art classes teach the fundamentals
of design, materials, techniques,
skills, high order thinking and
creative problem solving. Students
are taught not only problem solving


and alternative ways to think, but
also how to frame and formulate new
questions. In art, much like science,
students are taught to formulate their
own problems and then seek new and
innovative solutions to solve them.
Ahunkofclay, ablankpaperorcanvas
is an opportunity to think through the
media of materials and through the
senses. Paint, marble, graphite, and
clay create forms of thought that can
be communicated and appreciated
by others through shared senses.
The visual art curriculum has recently
been redefined by the State Board
of Education. Instead of teaching
classes specific to drawing, painting,
or ceramics, we present classes on
two dimensional (2D) or flat surface
Art I, II, III, and three dimensional
(3D) or multidimensional Art I, II, III.
The 2D courses include content
such as drawing and painting, while
the 3D courses include content such
as ceramics and sculpture. The
breadth of learning within each level
course will be both wider and deeper.
Students will not only be exposed
to new methods and materials but
they will be required to engage in
more active collaborative learning
and research within each discipline.


Pictured above, Art Teacher Jim Revell consults with 9th grade 3-D
art student Nidya Ysasis on how to create a zoomorphic vessel.


This teaching approach enables students
to develop independent ownership of
their own learning while cooperating
with others, and learning divergent
creative skills which will better prepare
them for the rapid and ever changing
demands of the 21st century work place.
Art can be fun. It is also highly


demanding. It takes a great deal of skill
and control of hand and media to bring to
life the ideas hidden in the mind. Harness
ideas and realizing them in materials that
communicate to others is what Art classes
are all about. So what do you learn in
Art class? I'd say you learn a LOT.
