Authorities Allege Men Made Advances To 12-Year-Old Girls


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
Two Hardee County parents
have reported men making
seductive posts on their 12-
year-old daughters' Facebook
pages.
Though, the incidents are
unrelated, both reports came in
to the Hardee County Sheriff's
'Office within days of each
other, Maj. Randy Dey said.
In each case, the men con-
versed online with the girls for
months, with the comments
allegedly escalating to the point
of asking the 12-year-olds to


sneak out of the house to meet
for sex.
Two men have been arrested.
Both will appear in Hardee
Circuit Court next week.
Caleb Tamayo, 19, of 520
Palmetto St., Bowling Green,
was arrested by sheriff's Det.
David Drake on Aug. 15 and
charged with obscene commu-
nication/use of a computer to
seduce a child.
Shane Allen Mizrahi, 20, of
1313 Mockingbird Road,
Wauchula, was arrested by
Drake on Aug. 16. He, too, is
charged with use of a computer


to seduce a child.
The charge is a third-degree
felony. If convicted as charged,
the men could fade five years in
state prison and/or a $5,000
fine.
Both men have pleaded not
guilty, and both. have been
released from the- Hardee
County Jail on $1,000 bond as
they await trial on the charges
against them.
They will appear before
Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle
on Tuesday for a pre-trial hear-
ing.
Allegations against Mizrahi


were the first to be made, on
July 10 of this year, Dey noted.
A father reported finding sex-
ual messages on his 12-year-old
daughter's Facebook page,
written by an older, male. The
father gave authorities permis-
sion to assume his child's
online identity, the major
added.
Drake reviewed messages on
the child's page, finding con-
versations with Mizrahi from
Nov. 6,-2011, up to July 10,
2012. "There never was a point
in which the child solicited or

Events Ring In


The Holidays!


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
It's beginning to look, and
feel, a lot like Christmas.
With every store and street-
lamp decorated in cheery col-
ors, it's hard to miss that
Christmas is less than a month
away.
To help kick-start the month
of December, this weekend
Hardee County will host sever-
al events in recognition of this
festive season.
Parade
Probably the biggest sign
that Christmas is coming is the
arrival of the annual Christmas
Parade.
The Hardee County Cham-
ber of Commerce has decided
this year's theme will be "A
Festival of Trees."
Along with trees, floats will
feature lights and many colorful
decorations that will be sure to
light up the night.
"We thought the theme
would lend a lot to the imagina-
tion," said Chamber Executive
Director Casey Dickson.
She also mentioned that typ-
ically there are between 75 and
90 entries every year, of those
about 25 are floats.
Music from both the senior-
and junior-high bands will be


featured throughout the route.
Also, candy and other treats
will be handed out by walkers,
as long as their supplies last.
But the most exciting thing
about the parade is the appear-
ance of a very special jolly old
man in a red suit. So make sure
to let the kids know to be on
their best behavior during the
parade, because now Santa real-
ly will know who's been
naughty or nice!
The parade will begin at 6
p.m. and take the usual route
from the old junior high school
going east on Main Street, turn-
ing south onto George Burris
Avenue, then turning west onto
Orange Street and finally head-
ing back to the starting point.
Bazaar
Although the parade is the
grand finale on Saturday, it's
not the only event happening on
that day.
First United Methodist
Church in Bowling Green will
once again host its popular
Annual Bazaar.
The church will have home-
made baked goods, several
crafts, clothes of all sizes,
plants and rummage-sale items
for purchase. There will also be
hamburgers, hot dogs, drinks

Citrus prices are about $1.25 a pound solids, reported Mark

Machine harvesting damages trees.
Florida has about 465,000 acres of oranges, with total citrus

Post-election analysis has shown that President Barack Obama
won re-election because of his support by Hispanics, African
Americans, women, young voters,' gays, welfare recipients and
labor unions. He won the popular vote by over 3 million.
Republican challenger Mitt Romney ran a good campaign, had
somegreat ideas and actually won more states but fell short in elec-
toral votes.
It is time for both parties in Congress-to work together to
reduce spending, restore higher tax rates for the rich, help firm up
Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, and grow the economy.
There should be several dollars of spending cuts for each dollar of
new tax revenue. Good luck with all that.

OVERVIEW
After Hurricane Chalile) hit
Hardee County, 34 residents
were removed from Resthaven
and 15 staff members were out
of a job until extensive repairs
could be done. These were, of
course, delayed by the addition-
al damages of hurricanes Fran-
ces and Jeanne.
Of the 194-pages of docu-
mentatioli' about Resthaven,
there are' 18 pages of FEMA
pI('ie'l ,i ksheeit. for the.work
to be done at Resthaven through
insurance and FEMA payments.
(It inadvertently calls Rest-
haven a nursing center when it
actually is an Adult Congregate
Living Facility, a non-medical
residential 'facility.)
The FEMA overview of dam-
age description is interesting.
"During the incident period,
Hurricane Charley inundated
Hardee County with sustained
winds in excess of 85 mph, and
with gusts over 100 mph. Winds
uprooted large trees and hurled
smaller debris through the air,
creating projectiles that flew
into buildings and causing mas-
sive damage through the coun-
ty.
"Resthaven is a 12,054
square foot (SF) building con-
structed in 1927 of joisted ma-
sonry on concrete slab. (It is the
former Lemoin Grove School-
house with its high ceilinged
classrooms, lunchroom, audito-
rium, etc.) It is owned and
insured by the county. Damages,
resulting from the storm were
that the 12.600 SF metal roof
and the 2,000 SF built up roof
were compromised across the
entire surface. Rain soaked over
6,000 SF of interior ceiling and
walls, ruining stucco finishes
and wallpapering.
"Approximately 2,700 SF of
suspended interior ceiling tiles
were damaged. 220 SY (square


or stucco walls and ceiling area
will need to be re-plastered and
repainted. Demolition and
cleanup work will need to be
completed after demolishing
the roof and walls and prior to
starting the repairs. Prep work
for flooring includes replace-
ment of 400 SF of 5/8" sub-
flooring.
"Replace 220 SY of commer-
cial grade carpet and 404 LF of
carpet cove. .Re-glaze eight
small windows. Rough and fin-
ish carpentry work for 200 SF
framed wall. 478 LF of wooden
trim and 360 SF of paneling.
Stripping and re-hanging of
4.456 SF of wallpaper. R&R
(repair and replace) 641SF of
2'x4' suspended ceiling tile.
Seal and paint 2,195 SF interior

and ceilings and 478 LF of trim.
"Detach and reset 12 fluores-
cent lighting fixtures and two
smoke detectors. Equipment,
scaffolding (ceiling work) and
contractors rate for six weeks of
supervisors time, temporary
facilities and equipment. (Esti-
mates taken from insurers sum-
mary total, $1,448,000 with
a deductible of 2 % or
$28,960)," concludes the
FEMA report.
SERVPRO
ServPro, a Tampa environ-
mental cleanup and restoration
company, was contracted by
Marshall Austin, adjuster for
Cramer, Johnson &Wiggins of
Dover, the third-party insurance
company contracted by the
county's insurance, Public Risk
Management, administered by
Gallagher Bassett of Fort
Myers. Austin visited Rest-
haven almost daily and oversaw
the work to ensure it was being
done according to contract.
The billing for Site No. 14 -
Resthaven was contracted
for a maximum of 40 days and
actually paid for 39, although',
ServPro remained at the facility
for a total of 56 days, with a
total payment -of $395,282.85.
Austin later renegotiated it even
lower to $391,513.10, with the
county using the $3,769.75 bal-
ance on other hurricane proj-
ects.
The'37 pages of ServPro
invoices and reports are broken
down into three sections, each
with dimensions .for the high-
celinged old schoolrooms:
.emergency 'drying services;
contents; and demolition and
remediation and air quality test-
ing, which was subcontracted
(see below)
The drying process involved
the use of a dehumidifier, turbo
vents and HEPA filtration air
scrubbers in the hall/foyer,
salon, 10 resident rooms, office,
stairway, kitchen, freezer room,
auditorium, cafeteria, and the
bathroom/shower room.
The contents work involved
the use of the HEPA vacuum,
wipe down with equipment and
chemicals and manipulating
furniture, etc. to do the work.
The demo and restoration
involved double-bagging' and
sealing debris, and decontami-
nation from water damage.
FLORIDA RESTORATION
This company, also engaged
by Cramer, Johnson & Wiggins,
was paid through the Clerk's
Office at $202,395.25 for work
done at Resthaven.
Its combined 47 pages also
break the demolition and reme-
diation work done in the same
rooms as noted above in remov-
ing damaged drywall, sealing
and painting, removing and
replacing wallpaper, paneling,
trim board, molding, carpet,
vinyl tile, light fixtures and
whatever. Not all work was
done in every room, but in each
according to the' amount of
damage to be repaired.
ROOFING
Emergency roof repairs and
replacement were billed under
L. Cobb Construction, both for
itself and subsidiary Cobb
Roofing out of Sebring, for
$75,250 plus $1,800 emergency
work for a total of $77,050.
Public works staff removed the
old metal roofing and salvaged
whatever it could. It was carried
to a vacant area of Hardee
Lakes Park for storage to be
used on smaller projects around
the county.


enticed Mizrahi," Drake alleged
in his report on the case.
The detective noted that,
early on, there were several
mentions of the girl's age,/with
Mizrahi repeating that she was
"only 12." On Dec. 21,2011, he
allegedly commented on a
photo of the girl, "Ummm. I
don't want to say anything. I'll
feel like a pedo. Lol."
He also tells the girl that he is
20 years old.
Basic conversations contin-
ued off and on,-Drake said, but
the topic of the girl's "curves"
came up, on April 27 of this
year.
By July 6, Mizrahi allegedly
was asking the girl to meet him
to be alone with him. "Just ask
to go on a walk," he allegedly
prompted the girl','-addiri,
"We'll have fun."
Mizrahi proceeded to make
explicit, descriptive sexual
comments to the child, Dey
alleged: Further, he asked to
engage in sexual relations, the
major charged.
Dey noted that after Drake
assumed the child's online pres-
ence, Mizrahi did not respond
to attempts to converse.
On Aug. 16, detectives inter-
viewed Mizrahi at the Sheriff's
Office, where he reportedly
admitted writing the messages
to the 12-year-old, but stated
"he did not feel there was any-
thing wrong with it as long as
he never acted on it."
The report on- Tamayo's

too, gave Drake permission to

tity.
Drake first reviewed mes-
sages, finding them dating from
Sept. 3, 2011. They continued
even after Drake took over the
online presence, ending on Aug.

Dey described the messages
between the, child and the
young man as "normal" be-
tween Sept. 4 and Oct. 11,2011.
But then, however, Tamayo
allegedly began making com-
ments of a sexual nature.
Drake alleged in his report
that Tamayo made repeated
attempts to be' with thi, girl, all

On July 24, Drake took over
the communications.
Dey alleged that on Aug. i,
Tamayo told the girl "we can
hide n keep it to ourselves," and
asking her to sneak out of the
house.
Drake made online arrange-
ments as the 12-year-old to
meet with Tamayo on Aug. 2,
Dey said. The meet never
occurred, however, .as Tamayo
did not respond to further mes-
sages on that day and was
reported to be at work.
On Aug. 15, detectives inter-
viewed Tamayo at the Sheriff's
Office. He allegedly admitted to
knowing the girl's age and
sending the messages, Dey said.
He also reportedly said what he
did "was wrong.' .

than half of that.
Older homes can be money
pits. In fact, houses built before
.1950 use about 60 percent more
energy per square foot than
those built.since 2000.
According to the U.S.
Department of Energy, sealing
air leaks especially around
doors and windows and
improving your home's insula-
tion are the fastest and most
cost-effective ways to save ener-
gy and money.
Of course, insulating won't
stop leaks. So weatherstripping
and caulking should be your
first plan of attack. In fact, the
government says those two sim-
ple air-sealing techniques will
pay for themselves within a
year.
These tips will help you save
money:
Check for leaks: On a cold
day, run your hand around door-
frames and windows. You'll
need weatherstripping if you
feel drafts around joints that are
inside your door and window
frames. You'll need caulking if
you see cracks or feel drafts
around the outside joints of your
door and window frames.
Weatherstrip your doors:
A new low-cost DIY product
called Cinch, by M-D Building


Products (cinchdoorseal.com),
allows you to seal your doors in
less than 15 minutes using -a
special peel-and-stick 3M adhe-
sive. All you do is measure, cut,
peel and stick it into place
around your doorfiraies and on
the bottom of your doors
Weatherstrip your win-
dows: Rolled sponge rubber
weatherstripping applied to the
inner sash, as well' as the top
and bottom, of windows, will
create a strong money-saving
seal that will last far years.
Check )our caulking:
You'll need to redo cracked
caulking .around windows arid
doorframes to keep' outside air,
rain and insects from coming in.
Look for a long-lasting sili-
cohized acrylic caulk that can
be painted, resists mold and
mildew and forms a weather-
tight seal.
Insulate your attic: If you
have less than 11 inches qf
fiberglass or eight inches f
blown cellulose (recycled
paper) in your attic, you could
probably benefit by adding
more. This is especially impor-
tant if you live in colder cli-
mates..
Other easy, low-cost whys to
save money include installing a
Programmable thermostat,turn-
ring off lights, lowering':your
water heater's thermostat to 120
degrees and washing full loads
of dishes and clothes.


finally received in March 2005.
It notes all residents were
removed when the facility sus-
tained significant water damage
in several locations throughout
the building. No standing water
in the facility was reported.
There was damage to the ceil-
ings, walls and floors by water
intrusion. The auditorium ceil-
ing was removed and eventual-
ly replaced. The roof of the
building was totally replaced.
The Florida Agency for
Healthcare Administration di-
rected the air quality study on
Sept. 15, 2004, but it was
delayed until Dec. 14, 2004
when the investigation, evalua-
tion and clearance process
began. After a walk-through
survey of the building, five sur-
face swab samplings were done
and sent to a certified lab.
Remediation was recom-
mended. Specific areas of the
walls and ceilings were re-
moved and exposed areas treat-
ed with an Environmental Pro-
tection Agency registered pro-
cess. Other suspect surfaces
were treated with -the same
process without substrate re-
moval. I
On Dec. 20, FIAQ returned
and took nine air samples utiliz-
ing an Aerolite Pump. Five
more surface swab samples
were also collected. There was
no airborne elevation of com-


mon or uncommon fungal
species, but surface sampling
showed an uncommon level,
necessitating a registered fog-
ging saturation procedure.
On Jan. 7, an additional five
indoor air samples and an out-
door air sample were collected
and 10 surface swab samples
collected. Surface samples con-
tinued to show "significant
uncommon fungal elevation."
Retreatment followed as well as
all air conditioning air handlers
and distribution systems profes-
sionally cleaned in accordance
with standards.
After a Jan. 25 visit and test-
ing of air samples and surface
swabs, it was declared that "this
building does not contain a
source of fungal growth, and it
may be occupied."
There were a lot of contribu-
tions to Resthaven of cleaning
supplies, bedding and food-
stuffs to get started again. Staff
and volunteers spent time in a
fresh washing of all dressers
and beds, dishes, cabinets and
shelving and 20 residents began
returning to the facility on April
1, 2005. (In the seven-month
interval, some elected to remain
at home with relatives, in facili-
ties to which they had been
moved or had died.) More resi-
dents were welcomed to reach
its quota of 38 residents.

changed."
Knight agreed. "I agree with
Mike. There should be times for
commissioners to make com-
ments and not be interrupted.
He can make comments later if
he needs to correct something
we misunderstood."
Evers said in order to allow
the county manager to speak,
procedure might need to be
changed. "For instance, if there
is an add-on item, he may need
to be the first, person to speak,
to explain it. The chair controls
it and may turn to him after the
commissioners have had their
say, according to the circum-
stances of it. We could amend
the ordinance on.him speaking
and leave the order of speaking
'up to the chair."
Commissioner Grady John-
son said, "I look at it in a differ-
ent manner.\There are five peo-
ple and each one of us has his
opportunity, to ask him (to
speak). That's the way it should
be. And the same with you,
Counselor .(turning. to Evers),
we should have a lot more input
from you. It's the responsibili-
ty of each commissioner to ask
the county manager to speak."
New Commissioner Colon
Lambert gave his opinion. He
said he agreed with what.com-
missioners Knight and Thomp-

son had said, but "sometimes
we could forget resources and
feel.compelled to handle it on
our own. There's too much
chance to go off on a tangent
when it could-be handled better
if he could head it off."
Knight agreed that the county
manager "has historical back-
ground and could make sure we
don't miss historical facts."
Birge said again that she
wanted an open opportunity for
the county manager to lend his
expertise and experience. She
said she had talked with com-
missioners all over the state and
it.was not unusual to have man-
ager input. It was also not un-
usual to have.a time limit on
comments from the public, she
said.-"It's not a lo, n hall meei-
ing. In Highland,. DeSoto,
Sarasota, there', not one that
doesn't have 'county manager
input." .
Johnson reiterated that it was
up to the chairman to handle
and be in control. "If it gets out
of hand, there are four others of
us to support you."
By press time. no other coun-
ties or city commissions were
found who do not,allow their
manager opportunity to speak.
Wauchula. Bowling Green and
Zolfo Springs all do, without
any restrictions.

UNION
Continued From 1A
personnel (SRP). For the 214
staff between the step increase
ranges, there was an additional
S500 bonus. All employees
received a S1,500 bonus in lieu
of a raise. The bonuses and
step-increases were retroactive
to the start of the school year.
A sticking point in last year's
negotiations was the adminis-
tration's banking of about $3.
million per year "for a rainy
day." The administration and
School Board have been reluc-
tant to spend the almost $10
million reserves they could
need for unscheduled facility
projects or other unforeseen
expenses. They did not want to
approve any recurrent expenses
such as salary increases in a
time of decreasing state rev-
enues. The annual school budg-
et published for public hearings
showed $11,216,487 in re-
serves, some of it reserved for
specific projects and about
$5,936,432 in unassigned
funds.
In mid-October, the adminis-
tration sent a memo to the
employee union representative.
"The Hardee County School
Board administration received
your request to .open negotia-
tions for 2012-13. We would
also like to begin and conclude
negotiations for 2012-13 'in a
timely manner; however there
are some factors beyond our
control that will impact our
ability to negotiate," says the
memo.
Listing three factors, the
memo continues, "The School
Board negotiators are willing to
meet at a mutually agreeable
time. However, we are not in a
position to discuss.financial
terms or respond to proposals
until some or all of the three
factors are resolved."
The three factors listed are as
follows:': '
1. "FTEn counts full-time
equivalent students). As you
know, the state primarily funds
school districts, including
Hardee, on the number of FTE
students. The first, FTE count
week of this year is Oct. 8-12.
As of last week, we are 121 stu-
dents below our FTE funding
Projectionn"
2. "FRS (Florida Retirement
System) contributions. During
2011- 12 nd 2012-13, the state
has required most employees to
contribute three percent of pay
to the FRS toward their retire-
ment.
"The Florida Supreme Court
is expected to rule soon on the
legality of the three percent em-
ployee contribution; this may
significantly affect the- School
Board's FRS contributions for
the past, current and future fis-
cal years."
3. "Sequestration -(reduction
of federal" funding)'. Unless
Congress takes action before
Jan. 1, federal projects are
expected to be reduced by
approximately nine percent. A
nine percent re-duction of
Hardee School Board federal
funding would be approximate- .
ly $860,000."
Negotiations finally open in
earnest on Tuesday in the Board
Room.

Week Ending: November 25,2012
Weather Summary: Eight of the Florida Automated Weather
Network (FAWN) stations recorded temperatures below 30 degrees
in northern Florida. Santa Rosa, Dixie, Madison, and Pasco coun-
ties reported frost in some areas. The rest of the State had minimum
temperatures mostly in the upper 20s, 30s, and low 50s. Minimum
temperatures ranged from 27 degrees in Quincy to 53 degrees in
Fort Lauderdale. Maximum temperatures were in the low to mid-
70s. Most of Florida was dry. There were traces of precipitation
recorded in the middle of the State with Quincy recording the most
with 0.06 of an inch. Water levels were dropping in stock ponds
and canals.

Field Crops: Lack of rain during the past week has depleted
soil moisture. In Escambia and Santa Rosa counties, some late cot-
ton bolls were opening prematurely due to dry weather. In Santa
Rosa County, 80 percent of the cotton had been harvested.
Sugarcane harvest was underway. Hay was being cut in Seminole
County.

etable crops. Producers in Miami-Dade County were harvesting
avocados and all winter vegetables. Carrots were being planted in
Madison County and cabbage in Flagler County.

Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture condition was
mostly fair, with conditions lower from the .previous week.
Drought was the first limiting factor. Most of the cattle were in
good condition, with the condition varying from very poor to
excellent. In the Panhandle, the. pasture condition was very poor to
good, with most fair. Drought, disease and cold limited the pasture
condition. Winter grazing was being planted and feeding of hay
began. In Jefferson, Escambia, and Santa Rosa counties, the pas-
ture situation continued to deteriorate. In the northern area, the pas-
ture condition was poor to excellent with most in fair to good con-
dition. Some greenchop of forage was underway. In Suwannee
County, cool season forages were being planted, but lack of rain
had affected planting where non-irrigated acreage. The cattle were
in fair to excellent condition with most in fair condition. In the cen-
tral area the pasture condition was very poor to good, with most
fair. Most cattle were in good condition. In the southwest area, the
pasture was in poor to excellent condition, with most in fair to good
condition. Stock pond water levels dropped. Pasture quality declin-
ing seasonally with cool weather and short days. The condition of
the cattle was poor to excellent with most in good condition.

Citrus: Daily high temperatures were in the low to mid-70s
across the citrus region. Three of the 24 FAWN stations in the cit-
rus growing region recorded traces of precipitation, with Dover
receiving the most at 0.03 inches. The citrus region remained
drought free, as per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated
November 20, 2012. Twelve processors and 38 packinghouses
were open. Application of fall miticide and herbicide, young tree
care, general grove maintenance, and harvesting of grapefruit,tan-
gerines, and oranges were the primary grove activities.

November 29, 2012, The Herald-Advocate 5A


HCSB Changes Bank


By MARIA TRUJILLO
For The Herald-Advocate
No major discussions were
had at the Nov. 8 Hardee
County School Board meeting.
The meeting began with a
decision on which proposal to
accept for new payroll bank and
automated clearing house/direct
deposit services.
This became necessary after
the current bank the School
Board uses, Seacoast National
Bank, notified the board that it
would be closing the Wauchula
branch and transferring all the
accounts to Arcadia.
A few weeks ago the board
sent out requests for proposals
to Fitst National Bank of Wau-
chula and to Wauchula, State
Bank. It was determined that
these banks were qualified pub-
lic depositories said Finance
Director Greg Harrelson.
After reviewing the propos-
als of both banks, Harrelson
concluded the best choice
would be to move the payroll
bank account and ACH/direct
deposit services to Wauchula
State Bank.
The School Board agreed
and moved to approve .that


motion with Superintendent
David Durastanti adding that
this was a necessity.
"Paychecks and direct de-
posits will be issued on the new
bank account starting on Nov.
30." said Harrelson.
Board members also ap-
proved the request from the
Hardee Senior High chorus and
band to attend a performance
contest in Atlanta. Ga.. from
March 21 to 23.
The members then went on
to approve other items on the
consent agenda, which means a
single vote, with no discussion,
cleared all of the items at once.
The first was on class-size
requirements.
Currently the maximum
number of students assigned to
each teacher may not exceed 18
students for kindergarten
through third grade, 22 students
for fourth through eighth, and
25 students for ninth through
12th.
In October every class in
Hardee County met these re-
quirements.
But with a board's approval,
the number of students in each
classroom can be slightly more

whenever necessary. Up to
three more students above the
maximum number may be
assigned to teachers in kinder-
garten through third grade. Up
to five students above the max-
imum can be assigned to class-
rooms in grades fourth through
12th.
Harrelson. in an agenda-item
summary. asked board mem-
bers to agree that it is "imprac-
tical. educationally unsound or
disruptive to student learning
not to permit class size flexibil-
ity in student assignment."
The second was allowing
Crowther Roofing to re-roof the
office building at Zolfo Springs
Elementary.
Crowther and L. Cobb Con-
struction attended a pre-bid
meeting in October, where they
both gave quotes on how much
the construction would cost.
Crowther gave the lower
quote of $62,100. This contrac-
tor previously did roofing proj-
ects at Hardee Senior High a
few years ago. According to
Director of Educational Facil-
ities Rob Krahl, they did an
excellent job, on time and with-
in budget.
The fiscal impact will be
$62,100 from General Fund
"one-time" funds that were
already budgeted in the 2012-
1 3 year. The construction is set
to be done during winter break.
The third was.the approval of
purchase orders greater than
$25,000. One of these purchas-
e- included 7,413 gallons of
diesel at $3.58 for transporta-
lion buses from Glover Oil.
This added up to $26, 505.
At the end of the meeting,
parent Aretha Faulk Taylor was
eti to speak. She requested the
hiring of specialists to help her
children with their behavior and
academics. The board then
informed Taylor that they were
not in charge of hiring special-
iI r they could only approve a
request to hire as presented to
thim by the superintendent.
In other recent action, the
School Board:
-accepted the resignation of
Br\an Pelham from Hilltop
E elementary and James See from
North Wauchula Elementary
and the leave of absence of
Amanda G. Crawford from
Hjrdee Junior High.

on how great of an athletic pro-

He acknowledged HJH's foot-
ball team and their fourth unde-
feated season in a row.
Trevino also mentioned how
nice the new band uniforms
look.

Sports action renewed enthusiastically after the Thanksgiving
break.
Girls basketball, and both boys and girls soccer had dates this
week. Boys basketball starts next week and junior basketball fol-
lows soon after. We haven't got a girls weightlifting schedule yet.

We are having some difficulty getting sports results from
coaches. We can only provide information which is provided to us.
There is no way there can be on-site coverage of events with as
many as five events in different venues on some evenings.
Coaches, help us help your kids. We depend on you for good infor-
mation.
A bit of a note on the Steedley kids. Father Tim reports that son
Timmy Steedley. who was injured at the end of the football season,
is expected to make a full recovery and is presently working out to
build strength and endurance for his senior season.
Older sister Chelsey is a junior at St. Leo University and play-
ing center field for the Division II team and projected as an All-
American. She had an outstanding career at Chipola Junior
College.
Speaking of softball, Hardee high senior Kayla Knight and soph
Alex Ullrich are back playing travel ball with the Tropic Wave
Gold. Look for good things from Hardee softball in the spring.
Information from community and school athletic events is always
welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at newsJheral-
dadvocate@embargmail.com with news for this bi-weekly column.
Please note that the deadline for sports news for weekday events is
5 p.m. Thursday. News for events which happen after that are due
by noon Monday in order to have a chance to get in that week's
paper, and is always dependent on space availability.

"Ouch," cried Mrs. Lofting while
sewing. "Every time I sew and try to
get thisneedle through coarse
cloth, I pierce my thumb."
Her sympathetic husband be-
came interested, and he fashioned
a bell-shaped covering. Jokingly,
he called it a "thumb-bell."
SInjusta littlewhile women began
ordering his cap, which is now
called a thimble," and is found in
almost every home.
When y' ure pierced, .don'L.

wisdom to turn your obstacle into
an opportunity.
The Bible says. "If any of you
lacks wisdom, he should askGod,
who gives generously to all."

Wauchula May Change


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Wauchula will be interview-
ing city attorney candidates
shortly.
At its November workshop
and monthly meeting, the'Wau-
chula City Commission decided
to set up interviews for four of
the nine candidates who re-
sponded to a Request for
Proposals for city attorney serv-
ices.
*Commissioners insisted that
they.were not displeased with
current city attorney CliffAbles
but felt every 10 years was not
too often to consider alterna-
tives. In fact, Ables is one of
those shortlisted for interviews
during the Dec. 3 monthly
workshop.
That lengthy workshop will
begin at 4 p.m. with an hour's
training on the Sunshine Law.
Then, with labor attorney
Reynolds Allen present, inter-
views will start about 5:30 p.m.
Each of the four candidates,
Thomas Cloud, Scott A. Ru-
dacille, James A. Fowler and
Ables, will be allotted about 10
minutes. Each will begin with a
short presentation of his unique
assets which would make him
the best candidate for the job.
All seven commissioners will
participate in the ensuing ques-
tion-and-answer session, posing
questions for an ad lib response
to give commissioners insight
on them and let the candidates
know what is expected of the
position.
A selection committee of City
Manager Terry Atchley, Police
Capt. Thomas Harris, City
Clerk Holly Smith, Finance
SDirector James Braddock, Main
Street Wauchula Community
Redevelopment Director Jes-
sica Newman and Assistant


City Clerk/Director of Com-
munity Development Olivia
Minshew each reviewed the
*nine applications and ranked
.them on experience, qualifica-
tions, accessibility, references
and fee schedule.
Committee members asked to
be give input on the questions
to be asked as they are the peo-
Iple who have to work on a daily
basis with an attorney, while the
commissioners may only see
;that attorney once or twice a
,month.
Other candidates were Mag-
gie D. Mooney-Portale, Kelly
'Fernandez, Derek Rooney, J.
iSteven Southwell II and John
W. H. Burton.

In other action in the Nov. 5
workshop and Nov. 13 regular
meeting, the commission:
-spent nearly an hour dis-
cussing a discrepancy between
the 1888 plat and the much later
first edition of the Carlton-
McEwen subdivision and the
effect on the old Coker Build-
;ing property, the southern por-
tion to be a city parking lot.
Surveyor Rob Stevens ex-
plained the difference in. the
two plats created a remnant of a
couple of feet on the division
line between the old Coker Fuel
property and adjacent church
property. It could cause a
change in the preliminary plans
,for the'proposed parking lot and
its retention pond.
It was finally decided to split
the difference with the church
:through its mortgagor. Ables
was directed to work out an
,agreement to correct the plats.
-approved a resolution
,adopting the recommended step
:plan which will take $24,300
:from contingencies this fiscal
:year. It begins with pay grade 6

Greetings from Fort Green!
They say on the TV that
Thanksgiving is the most' trav-
eled of all the holidays. Every-
bhdy comes home for this spe-
cial day. I do know when I was
growing up all my cousins,
aunts and uncles always came
to our home for Thanksgiving,
Christmas and Easter. I remem-
ber very few when we went to
any of their homes.
As always, we have a good
time and plenty of good food.
Avie cooked most of the meal
this year and I did desserts and
Avis Sasser brought the mus-
tard greens. Allen's mama,
Glenda, came from Avon Park
and brought food.
Lynda Abbott had 26 at their
home and Arden and Sam
Rawls had a lot of company.
They are among the blessed
ones that are fortunate to have


Dear Editor:
The community Thanksgiv-
ing dinner was very successful
in my eyes. My friend and I
went to' the Wauchula First
United Methodist Church at
noon.
They had already run out of
food; and they had to buy more.
As we went in the front door we
were met by Tito from Real
Life Church. Everyone was
very nice and hospitable. The
desserts were pumpkin pie,
pumpkin rolls and raspberry
chocolate cake. Delish.
The thing that is griping me is


large families.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Julia
Faye Davis on her home-going
last Friday afternoon. Her last
breath on earth and then her
next was in heaven. I'll miss
Julia Faye, but she had been
sick for a long time and con-
fined to her home.
Rocky and Angie Sonnier
have enjoyed having his dad
visit from Louisiana for a few
days. Of course, the main at-
traction is little Addie!
I was talking to Pillsbury
Adcock on the way from deliv-
ering Kaylee to her home last
Sunday and he was busy putting
up a:new mailbox. I thought
just a new one, but he said
someone had decided they
needed his more than they did.
It disappeared Friday night!
Youth, and I am guessing it was


what happened to Thanksgiv-
ing? In today's world Thanks-
giving has been bumped, is in
second place and has. gotten
competition with Black
Thursday and Black Friday.
It's a new world and new
things. Money and electronics
have replaced Thanksgiving.
People in today's world would
rather spend money than sit at'
home with friends and family
and resting one day out of the
year. May God help us all.
Sincerely,
Connie Lee Rowe

box is a federal offense!
Hannah Brown had a lovel\
slumber party to celebrate her
birthday. The girls never get
any sleep! Her grandma from
Avon Park spent a few days
with Hannah celebrating and
visited Fort Green Baptist the
following Sunday.
Pam and Mike Davis are
smiling pretty permanently
now. They have a new baby
boy. Bowen Luke, born on
Friday, Nov. 16, and I believe
they got him on Saturday. He
attended church on Wednesday
night, the. 21st, so they had
plenty to be especially thankful
for this Thanksgiving. There
will be a baby shower at Fort
Green this Monday at 6:30 p.m.
for them. Big brother Hunter is
also very happy.
Hazel Nicholson was better
and was able to come home for
Thanksgiving, but began losing
blood and had to return to the
hospital. Helen Nicholson fell
and is in the Sebring hospital.
Mrs. Helen is very remarkable,
still driving to Fort Meade
every morning to get, her Tampa
Tribune or was the last time I
talked to her. She is only 97!
Little Matt Chancey 'is no
longer required to wear the
heart monitor. Tom Lynn was
scheduled for a heart cath today
(Thursday). Please pray for all
of these.
I was told that the home of
,Little George Kersey's daugh-
ter, Edith, who is a nurse though
I don't know the last name, but
,her family was not at home last
Friday and their home burned
completely. They did not save
anything.
'My younger brother asked
me how tall were the men in
Florida and I said various
heights. He said, well, I am
6'3" and not a boy.' I replied
that he was my little brother and
would always be a boy to me!
Probably Little George has a


holidays. John and Essie Deer
flew out to Texas to spend the
holidays with their daughter
and family. Avie and Allen
Eures celebrated their first wed-


similar opinion abouL his name.
Little Steele and family
were at 3rt Green Sunda\
when his parents gave their tes-
timony and thanked our church
for praying for Tv. He was in
the children's ICU for quite
some time and it is a blessing
that he is well.
Our youth are going to Sea
World on Saturda\. They will
miss the Christmas Parade. but
Sea World has a good Christian
program every Christmas that is
well worth attending. If any of
the youth have missed church.
call Mrs. Faye to get \our name
on the list.
Art Womack visited over the


ding anniversary on the 25th
and we all enjoyed wedding
cake after Sunday dinner!
Pray for each other and our
world.

AUTUMN
What is autumn to a soul that breathes,
just reddish leaves dancing in a coolingbreeze?
Could it be expectancy ... like a child,
always asking for more and more,
never satisfied with what is at hand
but demanding treasures ever endlessly,
like grains of sand.
How can it be, nature's splendors in colors
like a banquet bf feasting ... always just, out of reach,
desiring to taste the richness fully
and yet, continuing in famished search as
the vastness of endless stars ... flying the universe.
Across the valleys, a master painter brushes
in strokes of purest delight and from the
meandering mountain streams ... to me songs they sing.
And above my path, an unbrella of "Autumn Fantasies"
cling like a thousand fairies dancing on
translucent wings...
"Hold On, Hold On! Don't Leave ... Not Yet!"

Q&A With A Biblical Perspective


FINDING MY PURPOSE
Q: So many people know what they are called to do, but I
truly have no clue. What does the Lord want me to do? I go
through each day as a robot doing my normal everyday duties,
but I know there is something missing.
Signed, No Purpose
A: For many year:, !, too. felt the same way. Every day
revolved around my family, house and six children. Still, deep
down I felt a greater calling on my life. I prayed for God to open
doors for me to minister, but to no avail.
See, I really wasn't ready for ministry. I still had a lot of grow-
ing to do. It was during this period of my life that I found a great
love for the Word as I searched for answers. I spent countless hours
of praying, which helped me to develop a great love for God a
personal relationship.
Just like me, many years ago a little boy was placed out in the
field to tend his daddy's sheep. He didn't think his life was very
important compared to his brothers'. But, it was during these days
of being a shepherd that David learned to protect his sheep from the
enemy, to pray, trust, and obey the Lord.
He was being prepared for a greater purpose, King.
You must understand that the church is a body made up of dif-


ferent parts. Some parts are seen, some not seen, but they all work
together. I fell a few months ago and hurt my knee. When I went to
the orthopedic surgeon, he explained I had torn the meniscus and a
ligament. These are not body parts I am familiar with honestly,
I didn't even know I had them but when they are damaged the
whole body suffers.
We can't all be the head, or have a platform to preach, but we
all have a purpose.
David became a man after God's own heart. This was a result
of hours spent alone with God while being a shepherd. God will
make a way for your calling in His timing.
Esther was an orphan who was chosen to become the king's
wife. God knew the king's love for her would one day allow her to
save her nation from being destroyed. Do you think she ever won-
dered what her purpose was? Do you think David ever dreamed
that one day he would hold the title of king? These, too, are ordi-
nary people who have an extraordinary story.

Toenail Fungus?

Laser Solution!

Sebring Podiatry Center

Request a complementary consultation!

Call 863-314-8600

Laser Nail Fungus Treatment kills the fungus that
lived in and under the toenail. The laser light passes
through the toenail without causing damage to the nail
or surrounding skin. There is a warming sensation and
some patients may feel a pinprick. Just walk in and
walk out. The laser nail fungus procedure only takes
15-20 minutes. Shoes and nail polish can be worn
immediately after the treatment.

SCIENCE NIGHT


COURTESY PHOTO
Under the watchful eye of teachers, students and parents performed hands-on science
experiments during North Wauchula Elementary School's recent Family Science Night.
The evening was designed to give guidance to parents on how to help their children
develop great science projects by applying the scientific method. Activities included
tips on creating winning projects, identifying testable questions, and developing sci-
ence display boards. Above all, parents learned how to help their children with their
projects at home while at the same time avoiding doing the experiments for them.
Fourth- and fifth-grade students will present their individual projects on Dec. 14 for
judging. Students in grades K-2 will present class or group projects, while third
graders will be ready to display small-group projects, also on the 14th.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



A little girl was trying to hug
her father, but he was too tall.
"Bend down, Daddy," she
cried, "so I can reach you."
Before God sent His Son
into the world, He too,
seemed beyond our reach.
God the Father became God
the Son and lived among us
so we could come to know
and understand Him. God
became Man in the Person of
His Son.
Like us, He was born of a
woman. But unlike us, He
had no earthly father.
His life, which began with-
out sin, was lived without sin.
He, went about doing good
for all healing the sick and
providing hope for the crises
of life. After all of the good
that He did, He voluntarily
went to the cross and diedifor
our sins, expressing the love
of God, His Father.
He's the same today. Right
now, as always, He's reach-
ing out to us with His endur-
ing and unending love.
This is a great time to reach
out to Him and tell Him we
love Him and are thankful for
all He's done for us.

Pioneer Creek RV News

PgsFoThe Past


time.
Residing the past 16 years in
Union City, Mich., they share
and enjoy their two sons and
families, with three grandsons.
Jim, after retiring from the
Navy, delivered cars for Avis all
over the state of Michigan. His
interests are gardening, wood-
working, nature, and baking.
Gilda is interested in bike rid-
ing, walking, canning, and
cooking. They both share the
interest in computers, and love
their cats named Albert andi
Quincy.
They have been camping in a
recreational vehicle for the past
four years in the Lakeland area,


and decided to check on a new
location. Searching on the
Internet, they found our park
listed and they called to check
us out. Between the help with
the office, newsletter, calendar
of activities and the friendliness
of Jim and Ann, our managers,
and residents, since October
they have decided to make this
their snowbird home, with
adding a screen room.
Say hello and a big welcome
as you walk by. We want to wel-
come them and hope they will
feel like they are part of our
Pioneer Creek family, being
definitely an asset to our park.


We hope everyone had a
happy Thanksgiving, taking a
time to be grateful for your
many blessings.
CHAPEL
As the organ played, Milt
Bement and Nancy Singleton
and Larry and Nancy Willey
greeted 69 for our chapel serv-
ice. Wayne Shick welcomed
everyone and Bob Conkle led
the hymns accompanied by
Sandy Feeser on the organ and
Cheryl Conkle on the piano.
The welcoming prayer was
given by Larry Brown and spe-
cial music was played by
Sandy, "Whispering Hope."
Pastor David read from Psalms
100: "Being Thankful."
COFFEE HOUR
Gerry, sporting another scarf,
led our pledge and prayer and
recognized any new friends or
family in the park. We had
many enjoying coffee and
doughnuts, but most of all the
time for visiting friends and
neighbors.
Our speaker, Ofc. Amy
Drake from Wauchula and with
Crime Prevention, shared with
us about filling out a card with
medication and dosage infor-
mation to keep on the refrigera-
tor in case of an emergency. The
information is readily available
for the Emergency Medical
Team to assist without a med-
ication conflict.
Our charity for this Christ-
mas season will be the Sal-
vation Army, to hopefully help
with Hurricane Sandy, victims,
many that may not be having
holidays.
Many merchant coupons
were given away and a triple
berry pie. from Perkins and
50/50 were won.
SPOTLIGHT
Jim Helmick was born in
Milwaukee, Wisc., but relocat-
ed all over with his dad being in
the service. Gilda was born in
Brooklyn, NY. They met 22
years ago, at an upscale night-
club in Stanton, NY, and got
married one year later.
Jim was in the Navy, and
retired ds a chief petty officer.
Gilda was employed and has

JFamily Habits that Support Healthy Teens
by Chrystal McDuffie, HHS Physical Education Teacher


According to the U.S. Department
of Health and Human Services,
childhood obesity in young children
and teens has tripled in the past 30
years. The percentage of children aged
6-11 years in the United States who
were obese increased from 7% in 1980
to nearly 20% in 2008. Similarly, the
percentage of adolescents aged 12-19
years who were obese increased from
5% to 18% over the same period.
Childhood obesity is particularly
troubling because the extra pounds on
children can lead to health problems
that were once confined to adults,
such as diabetes, high blood pressure
and high cholesterol. It can also lead
to poor self-esteem and depression.
I have personally witnessed the
tragic consequences of childhood
obesity. I went to high school with a
young girl that was obese. I sat next
to her in our computer class. I will
never forget the last words I spoke
to her. She sat down next to me and
told me that she wasn't feeling well
that day. When the bell rang for us to
change classes I said to her, "I hope
you feel better." She went home and
took a nap on her couch and never
woke up. She passed away from
a heart attack. A beautiful person
was taken way too early in her life.
Teenagers can be very, easily
influenced by, peers, media, school
and the community in which they
live. Family also has an impact on
a student's health and eating habits.


According to a study done by the
Mayo Clinic, the best defense against
obesity is to improve the diet and
exercise routine of the entire family.
By combining eating more healthy
foods (fresh, not processed) and
being active, teens can overcome
the obesity rate in America.
Many children fail to exercise
because they are spending time doing
activities on the computer, playing
video games or watching television.
These distractions have taken the
place of other outside activities such
as a bike riding, jumping rope, or
getting involved in a neighborhood
ball game; outside activities that
kids used to regularly take part in.
Researchers provided a technology
questionnaire to 4,561 children, ages
14, 16, and 18. They discovered
children were 21.5% more likely
to be overweight when watching
4+ hours of TV per day, 4.5% more
likely to be overweight when using a
computer one or more hours per day.
When questioned about their health
habits, 80% of the HSHS students
who participated in a poll through
their p.e. class said they were
concerned about their health, yet
only 43% of them indicated they
maintained a healthy diet. Based on
my observations and conversations
with students in my role as a physical
education coach, I think the students
want to be more health conscious,
but aren't sure how to go about it


Physical Education classes offer students a variety of options to keep ac-
tive and fit. Here, Ana Galvez practices her serve during volleyball class.


or perhaps do not 'have the 'en-,
couragement and support they need
to stick with a healthy lifestyle.
The best way to fight childhood obesity
is to make it a family affair. When families
make the decision to replace junk food for
healthy foods and. regularly engage the


entire family in physical activity, such as
an evening walk or bike ride, it can have
a tremendous health advantage on all,
involved. In addition, the group effort to
commit to a healthy lifestyle has the added
benefit of allowing you to bond as a family.

Stump The Swami
By John Szeligo


Well, football fans, the Gators have prevailed over the Noles
just as the Swami predicted. That highly ranked FSU defense was
well shredded by the Gators as the strength of an SEC program pre-
vailed over the much weaker ACC. The Gator offensive line
opened holes for a truck and the backs took full advantage. Maybe
playing an SEC schedule compared to Murray St, Savannah St,
Duke, Wake Forest and Boston College better prepares a team for
this type of game?
The Noles were not the only ACC team to fall to an SEC rival
this weekend. Georgia, South Carolina and Vanderbilt all had their
way with ACC teams. Florida will get a solid BCS Bowl for this
11-1 season. FSU has a date.with Georgia Tech for the ACC
Championship first. Stub Hub has tickets for that game going at $3
each! SEC Championship Game Tickets start at $300. With a win,
FSU will go to the Orange Bowl, probably against Rutgers or
Louisville of the mighty Big East. This could mean an ACC, BCS
Bowl, win finally.
The fact of Notre Dame playing for the National Champion-
ship.is one of the greatest miscarriages of justice in college football
history. There is no way any objective observer could possibly see
the Irish as qualified to be there. First, look how they got to 12-0.
Easy schedule is the most obvious factor. No conference to play in
means no power teams to possibly lose to.Then look at the Stanford
game when Stanford was denied a touchdown twice in overtime
that the film showed was clearly a touchdown. Then came the Pitt
game controversy which the Irish got away with at home. Yes, Pitt
in overtime. Pitt, a team which lost at home to Youngstown St. for
goodness sake, took them to overtime. Pitt missed a field goal but
Notre Dame had 12 men on the field. Pitt should have gotten anoth-
er kick but not in South Bend. Amazing how calls go the Irish way
at home. In recent years, Marshall, West Virginia, TCU and Boise
St. all have had undefeated teams but were denied the National
Championship game due to .politics. Notre Dame and the media
they seem to control have made sure the Irish are there in 2012:
Florida should be playing the winner of Alabama and Georgia for
the BCS National Championship. Oregon, Kansas St, LSU and
Texas A&M should all be ranked ahead of Notre Darie. The Irish
would have been lucky to go 9-3 in the SEC.
Conference expansion is heating up behind the scenes.
Maryland and Rutgers have accepted the Big 10 offer to join.

boards, North Carolina and Virginia have also been offered by the
Big 10. Latest word out of Tallahassee is that the ACC will be invit-
ing Louisville, Cincinnati and Connecticut. That makes sense bas-
ketball wise but does nothing for football strength. The Big 12 has
enjoyed the 10-team format as every team plays each other in foot-
ball. However, expansion is reality and FSU, Clemson, BYU and
Georgia Tech are being looked at. The SEC is rumored to be inter-
ested in N.C. St. and Virginia Tech.
The Heisman Trophy has no clear cut leader in 2012 but the
Swami will throw out.his 5 picks just for fun as no vote is involved
in the process.
1. Tavon Austin, West Virginia. The best all-around player in
college football hands down. With 2 games to go, he has 534 rush-
ing yards, 1,149 receiving yards, 165 punt return yards and 738
kickoff return yards for 234 yards a game average and 14 touch-
downs, which leads all major college players.
2. Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M. Forget he is a freshman. He
is deserving. He has accumulated 4,600 total yards, which leads the
nation. Plus he beat Alabama. His stats are better than Tim Tebow
and Cam Newton in the year they won the Heisman!
3. Rakeem Cato, Marshall. The Herd Sophomore QB has led
the nation in passing the entire season. He has passed for 4,201
yards and 37 touchdowns this season.
4. Colin Klein, Kansas St. The Wildcat QB is a Tim Tebow
clone. Before his injury, he was unstoppable. He can throw or tuck
it in and run. Overall, he is a leader.
5. Landry Jones, Oklahoma. The Sooner QB has passed for
back-to-back 500-yard games. His steady play has helped Okla-
homa into a BCS Bowl position.
Now Lets look at this week's Bill O" Fare ...
1. Georgia Tech and Florida State ACC Title Game. No
contest. FSU 45 GT 13.
2, Oklahoma at TCU Sooners better watch out. Frogs are
tough at home. A win though, with a Texas win at K-St. gives the
Sooners the Big 12 Title. Oklahoma 48 TCU 35.
3. Kansas at West Virginia Charlie Weiss brings his hapless
Jayhawks to Morgantown for Senior Day. Geno, Tavon and the rest
have a great day. WVU 44 Kansas 27.
4. UCF and Tulsa Knights take the CUSA Title. UCF 34
Tulsa-24.
5. Oklahoma St. at Baylor Last shootout for two high scor-
ing teams. Baylor 57 OSU 54.
6. Nicholls St. at Oregon St. --Beavers get one more tune-up
before bowl season. Love to see West Virginia and Oregon St. in
the Holiday Bowl. Oregon St. 48 NSU 10.
7: Georgia and Alabama UGA has had a great year. Tide
will not blow this .second chance. They will go,on to win the
National Championship again. Alabama 38 UGA 23.
8. Cincinnati at Connecticut Bearcats deny UCONN a
bowl game. Cincy 34 UCONN 17.
9. Pitt at USF Bulls could spoil Pitts bowl hopes but are
they.capable? Pitt 34 USF 10.
10. Nebraska and Wisconsin Huskers roll over Badgers to
become Big 10 Champions. Strange year in the Big Conference.
Nebraska 30 Wisconsin 13.
11. Texas at Kansas St. Colin Klein leads K-State to the
Big 12 Championship while the Horns fall to 8-4 with two straight
losses. Kansas St. 45 Texas 21,.
12. Boise St. at Nevada Boise St. finishes in a 3-way for
the Mountain West with a win over Nevada. Not bad'but not where
Boise has been. Boise St. 37 Nevada 23.
13. Kent St. and Northern Illinois Both teams are at 11-1
and meet for the MAC Championship. Slight edge to NIU. NIU 34
Kent St. 31.'
14. UCLA and Stanford Stanford takes the PAC 12
Championship. Stanford 35 UCLA 24..
15. Louisville at Rutgers Rutgers has been.coming up short
for years in its quest to make a BCS Bowl. This time they get it.
Rutgers 38 Louisville 33.
16. Army vs. Navy Dec. 8th for this game. Navy sails to
another win. Navy 35 Army 21. ...
17. Jacksonville at Buffalo--- Jags shiver in the cold of
Buffalo. Bills 31 Jags 23.
18. New England at Miami Brady carves up the Fish. New
England 34 Miami 21.
