Is Community



Redevelopment



Meeting Goal?


City Seeks Citizen Input


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Just what does redevelop-
ment mean? Is it creating jobs,
fixing vacant buildings allowed
to deteriorate?
The city of Wauchula is ask-
ing -for citizen input on how
they feel'their tax dollars should
be spent on revitalizing, the
community. Residents are
asked to contact their commis-
sioner, and/or City Manager
Terry Atchley or Assistant City
Manager Olivia Minshew, who
can be reached at 773-3131.
The issue several years
ago, \the Wauchula City .Com-
mission approved the Com-
'munity Redevelopment Agency
in setting up a pair of incentive
grant piogranms to help residents
bring home, tip t code ahd
businesses gel i end uied to pro-
vide more jobs and present an
attractive appearance to people
Visiting the town. There are no
income or asset levels to quali-
fy. This year, there is,$30,000
set aside for housing rehab
grants and $45,000 for com-
mercial grants.
No one has much'question on
the residential grants, mostly to
help people paint, repair win-
dows and doors and correct
other code deficiencies. Res-
idential grants can be for exteri-
or, consulting, and revitaliza-'
tion services. The home must be
owner occupied. Grants gener-
ally are for up to 50 percent
reimbursement when a project
is completed.
In the last year or two the
commercial grant program has
come into question at commis-
sion meetings and in the com-


munity. Commissioners have
questioned whether signage, air
conditioners, interior upgrades
and other items may be more
maintenance than correcting
blight or renovating a vacant
building to become a viable
business.
Discussions began last Feb-
ruary, deciding rental units did
not qualify for residential
grants. So Calvin Bates, then a
member of' the Main Street
Wauchula Board, received
$6,154.50 for his South llth
Avenue location as a rental
business.
The commission asked that
there be three estimates for
repair work, with the grant
amount decided on the highest
estimate.
There was discussion that one
business receive only one com-
mercial grant of each type in a
five-year period. Residential
grants can be for facade, con-
sulting services, revitalization
and paint.
In recent years, the commer-
cial grants have been spent on
several businesses which have
not survived, raising questions
of reimbursement if the build-
ing is sold within five years.
There is the Thomas Santarlas
offices on South Ninth Avenue
($9,578); Busy Bees on West
Orange Street ($7,500); a
University of South Florida
satellite resource center on West
Main Street ($23,902.50); and
Billy's Good Eats ($5,000),
among others.
More importantly, however,
are the current business owners

Prices Go Up As Crop Goes Down


The U.S. Department of
Agriculture on Tuesday said its
estimate of the 2012-13 Florida
citrus crop has decreased more
than five percent to 146 million
boxes.
The majority of the decrease
will occur in early-mid vari-
eties. which are down by seven
million boxes to 67 million
from the USDA's initial
October estimate. Valencias
decreased one million boxes to
79 million boxes.
The USDA makes its first
crop estimate in October of
each year and revises it month-
ly as the harvest takes shape.


until the end of the season in
July.
"This decrease was not
entirely unexpected, as we have
been hearing reports of severe
fruit drop throughout the state,"
said Michael W. Sparks, execu-
tive VP/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "The dry weather cou-
pled with intense disease pres-
sure the growers are facing is
most likely causing the drop.
"I anticipate the decrease in
crop size will continue to put
upward pressure on fruit pric-
ing." he added.
During the 2011-12 season.


Florida produced 146.6 million
boxes of oranges.
For Florida specialty fruit,
the USDA now predicts 1.1 mil-
lion boxes of tangelos, down
from 1.2 million in October,
and 3.8 million boxes of tanger-
ines, down from 4.4 million in
October.
The yield for from-concen-
trate orange juice remained at
1.61 gallons per 90-pound box.
The USDA now predicts
Florida will harvest 18 million
boxes of grapefruit, down from
October's estimate of 20.3 mil-
lion boxes.

Researchers listed ellcilo.clin i de\elonipmnt, chemical herbi-

Amy Wiser of the Kiwanian Magazine writes that some vices
are nice, in moderation, and that people should indulge in pleasure
every day. She, suggests such things as a piece of dark chocolate, a
nap, a visit with friends, a cup of coffee, adequate sleep, sunshine,
or one glAss of wine.
Healthy habits promote happiness, but do not let a habit inter-
fere wjlth personal relationships or your ability to have a productive
work life, says Kimball Richardson, mental health counselor at St.
Vincent Stress Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Times can change quickly on sports. In 2010 Auburn
University, led by Heisman-winning quarterback Cam Newton,
won the national football championship, and head coach Gene
Chizik was a hero.
After going 3-9 in 2012 and 0-8 in the SEC, Chizik was recent-
Stired. The university is 'obligated to pay him $7.55 million, at
0,000 A month because of his guaranteed contract. Being head
oah at that level is a high-pressure job with good results expect-
,ut if you are going to be fired $7.55 million is a nice cushion
tlnd on.
Other SEC head football coaches fired recently and their buy-
cts were Derek Dooley at Tennessee, $5 million, and Joker
illips at Kentucky, $2.5 million, reported the USA Today on
ov. 26. Last year Houston Nutt was fired at Ole Miss with a $6
njillion buyout and Mike Sherman at Texas A&M with a $5.8 mil-
libn buyout.

In 2000 Tiger Woods won 10 times in 22 official PGA events,
including 3 majors. In 2007 Tiger won 7 PGA titles, including 1
major. Vijay Singh in 2004 won 9 PGA titles and 1 major.
In 2012 Rory Mcllroy, 23, of Northern Ireland won 5 times in
24 PGA starts including 1 major title, and earned $11.9 million,
surpassing the $10.8 million Tiger earned in 2007, reported the
USA Today.
In 2013 can Mcllroy have another monster year? Can Tiger
Woods win a 15th major title as he tries to surpass Jack Nicklaus'
record of 18?

Portable generators can be a
powerful tool during a natural
disaster or emergency. However,
they can also be dangerous -
even, deadly if not installed
and operated safely.
That's the word from experts
who say safety hazards include
carbon monoxide (CO) poison-
ing, electric shock or electrocu-
tion, and fires. There were 542
generator-related CO deaths
between 1999 and 2009, accord-
ing to the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC). Eighty-five percent of
these deaths occurred in and
around the home.,
To help keep you and your
family safe from generator-
related hazards, here are some
tips from the Electrical Safety
Foundation International
(ESFI):
ESFI recommends that gen-
erators be installed by qualified,
licensed electricians.
Do not connect a generator
directly to household wiring
without the use of a transfer
switch that keeps power from
back-feeding into the power
lines.
Make sure your home has
either a battery-operated or bat-
tery backup CO alarm. Test the
batteries monthly.
Never operate a generator
inside your home or in any other
even-partially enclosed space.
Opening doors and windows or
using fans for ventilation will
not prevent CO from building


The smallest bat in the
world is thought to be the
Philippine bamboo bat. It
measures about 1.5 inches

ite

age


up.
Locate the generator'as far
from the house as possible,
away from doors, windows and
vents. Keep the generator a safe
distance from your neighbors'
homes as well.
Do not operate the genera-
tor in wet conditions or where
there is standing water. Use the
generator on a dry surface
under an open, canopy-like
structure.
Make sure not to overload
the generator. Keep the electri-
'cal load to no more than the
generator's recommended watt-
age.
Plug appliances directly
into the generator or use a
heavy-duty, outdoor-rated ex-
tension cord.
Turn off all appliances
powered by the generator be-
fore shutting it down.
Always turn the generator
off and let it cool down before
adding more fuel.
Keep children away from
generators at all times.
Remember that a generator
is a temporary power source.
Use it only when necessary to
power essential equipment or
appliances.
Understanding the dangers
associated with portable gener-
ators and practicing good safety
habits could save your life. For

cal safety during storms and
natural disasters, visit www.-

Should CRA funds be used to place a new sign for a business, such as the $1,616.50
grant for an accounting office on U.S. 17 North?


City staff removed a falling awning to prevent danger to people walking along West Main

BACKGROUND
A final hearing in 1997
approved an ordinance creating
the Redevelopment Trust F'und
for Wauchula's Community
Redevelopment Agency which
had been approved in 1996. It
s 1996 tax levels as the valua-
tion in determining how much
tax dollars would go to the
CRA. For instance, in 1996,
there was 5300,000 in taxes.
Any monies over. that base
year's amount are set aside for
the CRA fund called Tax
Increment Fundin'g (TIF).
It includes city and county
property taxes paid by resi-
dents of the city. In the strong


economic years before 2009, it
averaged $550,000-$600,000 a
year. For the last four years,
those amounts taken off the tax
rolls have been:
2009 $390,002.27 county
taxes, $248.116.95 city taxes, a
total of $638.1'19.22.
2010 $318.533.39 'county
taxes, $206.648.90 city taxes, a
total of $521,182.29.
2011 $260.867.97 county
taxes. $172,260.08 city taxes,
total $433,128.05.
2012 $269.669.06 county
taxes. $178.071.74 city taxes,
total $447,740.80.
When established under the
Florida Redevelopment Act of
1969, which became Florida
Statutes Chapter. 163.3, CRAs
set a goal to eliminate slum or
blight conditions. It was left to
local governments to declare
the need for redevelopment.
Initially it included the full
-square mile of Wauchula.
Briarwood. Inglis Way and Oak
Forest were later removed from
the CRA's district. Some prop-
erties were recently added by
annexation.
Originally set for 25 years,
the Wauchula City Commis-
sion sitting as th'l CRA Board,
recently extended that to 30
years, ending it in 2027. The
CRA's founding resolution
declares it is in the best interest
of public health, safety, morals
and welfare to eliminate or rem-
edy blight, which was defined
as conditions which impair or
impede development.


Projects were to include
streetscaping, sidewalks, pur-
chase of property, renovations,
and planning and construction
of public facilities. Goals were
to promote sound growth and
economic development, en-
courage private investment and
voluntary rehabilitation, over-
come service level deficiencies,
improve employment opportu-
nities and increase the tax
bases. Restated, the goal was to
clean, up the city (by code
enforcement), and make it more
attractive to businesses and res-
idents coming to the area.
The CRA's annual budget
includes major projects, such as
the renovations at the Town
Center, purchasing the Amer-
ican Legion parking lot, demo-
lition and reconstruction where
the old Coker Fuel Building
was and others. Outstanding
successes have been renovation
of the old Cranford Building,
which the city. now rents to
Giovanni's, and reconstruction
of the old Thriftway Building
for police and city administra-
tion.


It's believed that there is
the same amount of water
on Earth as there was
when the Earth was
formed. Some say the
water that came from your
faucet could contain mole-
cules that Neanderthals
drank.

ATKINSON EDWIN
"ED" POOSER III
Atkinson Edwin "Ed"
Pooser III passed away peace-
fully at home in Winter
Garden on Thursday, Dec. 6,
2012, at the age of 96.
He was born in Wauchula
on Nov. 24, 1916, to Atkinson
Edwin Pooser 11 and Adelaide
McEwen. Both parents came
from pioneer Florida families.
His parents grandfather was'a
captain in the Confederate
army, serving in the Florida
Brigade, and surrendered his
company at Appomattox. His
maternal great-grandfather,
William Penn McEwen, was
one of the early Methodist cir-
cuit riders in Florida.
SEducated in Florida public
schools, Ed attended the Uni-
versity of Florida. On his
birthday and Thanksgiving
Day in 1938, he married the
love of his life, Janette
Jenkins of Bartow. They were
happily married for 74 years.
For the first 10 years of his
married life, Ed sold insur-
ance in Bartow and then
Jacksonville..
In 1948, he began working
for the State of Florida as an
investigator with the Trans-
portation Department of the
Florida Railroad and Public
Utilities Commission, now
the Public Service Commis-
sion. After appointment as
district supervisor, he became
assistant director. In 1959, he
became director and remained
in that position until 1980
when trucking was deregulat-
ed.
In an article in Florida
Truck News in April 1973, it
was stated, "Pooser has organ-
ized a transportation law
enforcement force which is
second to none. It has gained
national recognition for its
efforts in eliminating illegal
transportation. Other states
have patterned their enforce-
ment procedures after the
Florida Commission's opera-
tion. Enforcement personnel
from many other states have
been sent to Florida for train-
ing in these procedures."
After 32 years in trans-


portation, following deregula-
tion, Ed retired. Within two
months he was back at work
with the Florida Trucking
Association. Ed became
known as "Mr. Transpor-
tation" and was FTA's "Man
of the Year" for 1989.
'* Mans'oft the transportation
'laws now on the books in
Floida began as legislation
drafted by Ed Pooser. He was
a past president of the
National Conference of State
Transportation Specialists and
served as chairman 'of that
organizations's Conference
Committee Joint Board. He
was on the Reciprocal and
International Relations com-
mittee of the American
Association of Motor Vehicle
Administrators. He saved
Florida's trucking industry
untold millions of .dollars
through the various reciprocal
agreements he negotiated with
other states and Canada.
'Ed was an excellent admin-
istrator. His two pet require-
\ments were you "always
answer your correspondence"
and you "make a report on
everything -that happens."
Years after he left state gov-
ernment, questions on past
procedures 'were easy to
answer because of Ed's poli-
cies.
One major accomplishment
of Ed's was setting up the first
firearms training for Trans-
portation Enforcement offi-
cers. When legislators ques-
tioned why the DOT officers
needed guns, Ed replied,
"Have you ever tried to arrest
somebody with a pencil?"
He was preceded in death
by his son Robert James
"Jim" Pooser.
Ed is survived by his wife
of 74 years, Janette Pooser.
Children are Atkinson Edwin
"Ned" Pooser IV and wife
Polly of Franklin County, and
Mary Janette "Jenny" Brown
and husband John Paul of
Winter Garden. Grandchil-
dren are Atkinson Edwin
"Ted" Pooser V, Barbara
Janette Olson, Holly Baulier,
John Pooser, David Pooser,
Daniel Pooser and PJ Brown.
Great-grandchildren are Ash-
ley and Timberly. Great-
great-grandchild is Levi.
Services were Sunday, Dec.
9, at Robarts Garden Chapel,
at 3. p.m. with visitation at 2
p.m. Interment is in Wauchula
Cemetery.

Need Help With Stress?

There is a remedy that's become more popular in recent time that
,dates back to the first week of Creation even 2500 years before the
Jewish race. At the end of the week our Maker established a period
of time whereby all of His children could enjoy special
companionship with Him for it is written that God sanctified (set
apart for holy use) the seventh day or the one we now call Saturday.
Our Eternal Father even went so far as to bless the day itself
(Genesis 2:3), so you can be sure that by partaking of this precious
time you will receive a blessing yourself. On every Saturday you can
supernaturally (by God's grace) be relieved of stress associated
with secular duties and obligations. You can be recharged by the
Great Healer Jesus Christ. You can enter the new week ahead with
,miraculous results. If you think that you would like to experience the
benefits of this Holy blessing you must first-by faith ask God to help
make it happen. Since the nature that we have all inherited is not in
subjection to Godly spiritual principles, the first miracle that will be
realized is the one that made you willing to partake of the blessing
in the first place.

Q&A With A Biolical Perspective


INTERNET AND CHILDREN
Q: Lately all I see is how men are targeting young girls on
the Internet; it makes me frightened to even let my child on the
computer. I want to be cautious without punishing my child for
what others are doing, but how can I be sure that my child
doesn't become a victim?
Signed, Frightened Parent
A: There is no sure way to stop people from doing evil. But
we can proceed with caution and use wisdom to ensure our chil-
dren's safety.
First, know what sites your children are on and get their pass-
words. This may seem invasive, but as parents it is our responsi-
bility to be their protector. Check the history of your computer after
your children have been on there; know what sites they are view-
ing. Don't hesitate to ask questions should you become suspicions.
The web has made it very easy for predators to have access to
children like never before. As parents we have to stay one step
ahead of them.
If your child has a Facebook account, then I suggest you mon-
itor her friends list. Only allow her to be friends with people you
know and believe are trustworthy. Many times parents never know
what their child is doing on the Internet, until it is too late.
You don't have to be frightened of the Internet;'it's not the
computer that is bad, but people who misuse it.
The Bible speaks of the times that we are living in now in 2
Timothy 3:2, "People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of
money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents,
ungrateful, unholy." This means we have to pray harder, communi-
cate with our children more often and love them like never before.
If you still feel uneasy about the Internet, then make sure you
are present with your child when she is using the computer.

RESTHAVEN HELD CHRISTMAS PARTY DEC. 6


Letter To The Editor

Attending Church, Obeying

God's Laws Are Beneficial


Dear Editor:
It is amazing how human
beings think that death will get
them out of all their problems,
guilt. shame and punishment.
First, someone who will kill
their enemy and then them-
selves to prevent punishment,
judgement and prison.
How surprised are these poor
souls thinking they won't
remember what they did, when


in actuality they are putting
themselves in the hands of the
living God who is their ultimate
judge. No one can avoid God's
judgement.
I have been thinking this past
generation must have raised an
angry bunch of children, what
with the shoot-em-ups. DUIs
and suicides in the news.
I believe that was the time
when people stopped attending


churches ,s much. What a
shame.

In Llanwrtyd Wells, Wales,
every year, a race is held
between a man and a
horse. The event dates
from 1980, when a local
pub landlord overheard a
conversation about how a
man could beat a horse
over a long distance.

Audiobooks Help Kids Learn


With school back in session,
there is good news for millions
of students who have difficulty
reading because of dyslexia or
other learning disabilities. For
these young people. who strug-'
gle to understand the printed
word, there is a proven alterna-
tive: They can listen to their
.textbooks and enjoy academic
success.
Studies have shown that aud-
iobooks are. remarkably effec-
tive for many students with
reading-based disabilities. The
benefits of auditory learning
include increased comprehen-
sion, better grades, higher confi-
dence and improved self-
esteem. The leading resource for
these students is Learning Ally,
a nonprofit organization that
offers the world's most art
vanced library of audio text
books for at-home and in-the-
classroom reading.
Audiobook Apps
Go Mainstream
Learning Ally offers instant
access to more than 75,000
audio textbooks and popular lit-
erature titles nearly every-
thing required for kindergarten
through high school and
beyond. The audiobooks can be
easily loaded to devices that
kids use in everyday life-like
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, as
well as their laptops.
Educators applaud the inde-
pendence that new mainstream
technology gives to their stu-
dents. "Kids with learning dif-
ferences want to be part of the
crowd, and they don't want to be
dependent on having mom or
dad read their books to them,"
says Ruth W., an educational
therapist in California. "Now


they can just put their earbuds
on, read with Learning Ally's
free audio app on their iPhone,
and blend in with their friends
- which, especially in the teen
years, is a huge consideration."
Proven Help for Dyslexia
With the help of Learning
Ally audiobooks. thousands of
young people across the U.S.
are enjoying newfound success
in the classroom. Dyslexic stu-
dent Kara S. has come a long
way from the "slow reading
table" she was forced to sit at in
elementary school. She recently
graduated from the University
of San Francisco with a double
major in physics and math.
"Parental support could only
go so far," Kara says. "I needed
something more." She credits
her membership with Learning
Ally as the key to igniting her'
passion for learning and in-
creasing her confidence as a
reader and student.
Membership Advantages
Students who qualify for
membership with Learning Ally
enjoy unlimited access to
audiobooks from major pub-
lishers. The books are read by
human narrators who include
teachers, doctors, scientists and
specialists in every subject -
people who can explain every
picture, diagram and hart.
Students enjoy free software
and flexibility to play their
books on multiple devices. And
a new feature for .on-screen
highlighting of text in select
books will be released this fall.
To learn how your child can
enjoy the' advantages of'
Learning Ally membership, go

While holiday memories
often center on family meals.
including special, traditional
desserts, many families may be
concerned about the extra calo-
ries-but there are some smart
and simple ways for families to
overcome this challenge.
To preserve your traditions
and help your family's waistline.
you may want to consider mak-
ing some swaps that will still
satisfy your family's sweet tooth
but offer more nutrients and
fewer calories, less saturated
and trans fats and added sugar.
As you plan your holiday get-
togethers. consider these tasty
dessert ideas:
Pile on the fruit. Fruit by
itself makes an excellent des-
sert. Try placing a bowl of
clementines or apples on the
holiday table. The fruit looks


beautiful and is easy to eat, even
for children. Offer a fruit basket
to friends instead of a plate of
holiday cookies. Make a winter
fruit salad with your traditional
meal.
Update family favorites
with healthy add-ins. If home-
made breads are your family's
treat of choice, try baking with
whole wheat flour or adding in
healthful options such as ba-
nanas, blueberries, cranberries.
apples, walnuts and pecans. Just
be sure to use nuts in modera-
tion since they are high in calo-
ries. Try the healthy Banana
Nut Bread recipe from the
National Heart. Lung. and
Blood Institute at www.-
nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/
heart/other/syah/banutbre.-htm.
Make it a mini. You may
have noticed that food portions


have grown quite a bit over the
past few decades. Fortunately,
you don't need to eat a large
dessert to enjoy it. Consider
serving bite-sized desserts
instead of full servings. Mini
pies, cake pops and one-bite
cookies are all ways you can
control your family's portion
sizes. Just remember, just
because they are smaller in size
doesn't mean you should eat
more of them.

Sarah Chalke Urges Moms To

Get Their Families Vaccinated


Sarah Chalke isn't a doctor.
but she played one on TV.
Widely known for her role on
the hit TV series "Scrubs." the
actress and mother has joined
the Faces of Influenza initiative
to educate the public about the
seriousness of influenza and the
importance of immunization-for
the whole family.
Sarah knows the critical role
that mothers play in the health
care of their families and is urg-
ing moms across the country to
help protect themselves and
their loved ones against the flu
by 'getting vaccinated this and.
every year.
"Like all mothers, I do what-
ever I can to keep my child
healthy, and an important part of
this is having him immunized
against the flu," said Ms.
Chalke. "And, to make sure the
people in my son's life don't
spread the virus to him, my fam-
ily and I have all gotten our flu
shots and. will continue getting
immunized every year."
Vaccination is recommended
by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC)
for everyone 6 months of age
and older, and is especially
important for groups at higher
risk of developing influenza-
related complications, including.
people 50 years of age and
older; pregnant women, people
of any age with certain chronic
medical conditions, such as.


asthma, chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease (COPD),
heart disease, diabetes and oth-
ers; and residents of long-term
care facilities and nursing
homes. The CDC also recom-
.mends a yearly vaccination for
those who come into close con-
tact with high-risk groups, such
as household contacts, care-
givers and health care pro-
viders.
In addition, parents need to
know the CDC also recom-
mends that ,children ages 6
months through 8 years who are
getting a flu shot for the first
time receive two doses approxi-
mately one month apart for the
best protection.
"I've learned everyone is at
risk of contracting and spread-
ing influenza, which can lead to
severe complications ... even
deatli," said Ms. Chalke. "I'm
glad to be a part of the Faces of
Influenza campaign because I
want others to know how
important influenza vaccination
is for their health and the health
of their families."
Vaccination is safe and effec-
tive, and the best way to help'
prevent influenza. With vacci-
nation options available for
every age group-children,
adults, and seniors-people
shouldd talk with their health
care provider to find the option
that's right for them and .their
families this season.


About Influenza
Influenza is a serious respira-
tory illness. Each year in the
U.S., on average, influenza and
its related complications result
in approximately 226.000 ho's-
pitalizations. Depending on
virus severity during the in-
fluenza season. deaths can
range from 3.000 to a high of
about 49.000 people.
Immunization to prevent
influenza can begin as soon as
vaccine is available in the late
summer and early fall. How-
ever, for those who can't get
vaccinated early in the influen-
za season, such as children who
are not yet 6 months of age or
any others who missed their
annual shot. immunization
through the winter and even
into the spring is beneficial. In
fact, as long as influenza virus-
es are in circulation, it's not too
late to get vaccinated. This is
because, in many seasons,
influenza activity doesn't peak
until winter or early spring. It

Longitude: 820 00' 44.38" W


The application and permit revision is available for public inspection during normal busi-
ness hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the
Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water Resource Management, Phos-
phate Management Program, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, Florida 33637-
0926. Please phone (813) 632-7600, extension 138 or 158 for an appointment.
The Department will issue-the permit revision unless a timely petition for an administrative
hearing is filed under sections 1,20.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all parties
reach a written agreement on mediation as,an alternative remedy under section 120.573
before the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the
right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth.below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and
,must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.1 06(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlargement
of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (re-
ceived by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for
filing a petition for an administrative hearing.
Petitions' filed by ahy persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication, of the notice
or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Department for notice
of agency action may file-a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless
of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for enlarge-
ment of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that per-
son's right to request an administrative determination (bearing) under Sections',120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervennon (in a proceeding initiated by an-
other party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion
in compliance with.Rule 28- 106.205, Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material' facts on which the Department's action is based must
contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the narre, address, and
telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any; the Department permit identifi-
cation number and the countyin which the subject matter or activity is located;

(b) A statement of how and-when each petitioner received notice of the Department
action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the Department
action;

(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must
so indicate;

(e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
Department action;

(f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules' and statutes which
entitle the petitioner to relief; and

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

In addition to requesting an-administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue me-
diation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agree-
ment with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain
all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agree-
ment must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at
3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within
ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will
not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to me-
diate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the
agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department
must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to
protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision
must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute; the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice
will specify the.deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes.
This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a
petition (or request for mediation) is filed in accordance with the above. Upon the timely
filing of a petition (or request for mediation) this order will not be effective until further order
of the Department.
Any party to the order has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section 120.68
of the Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of the Florida
Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General
Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000; and by filing a copy of.the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing
fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within
30 days from the date when the final order is filed with the Clerk of the Department.

hospitals to the highest stan-
dards-on behalf of our purchaser
members and their employees.

In return, the young scholars-sign contracts in which they promise to remain drug-free,
to avoid behavior that would get them into trouble with law enforcement, to attend
school regularly, and to earn satisfactory grades. The students' parents also sign the
contracts and agree to provide home environments conducive to education. Pictured

Sharmin Jones, director of nursing for The Palms of Sebring


W hen Sharmin Jones wanted to become a nurse, she put
college programs under the microscope, examining
their quality of education, reputation for excellence, and
convenience of being close to home. Ultimately, she choose
South Florida State College, where its nursing graduates passed
their state licensing exams at a rate of nearly 100 percent and
praised the program enthusiastically. Today, as a graduate of
SFSC's practical nursing and LPN to RN Transition programs,
Sharmin says her solid SFSC education prepared her to
become the director of nursing for The Palms of Sebring. I had
professional instructors, who had their own unique specialties.
They were meticulous about every aspect of a nurse's
responsibilities, and the clinical instruction was excellent."

4B The Herald-Advocate, December 13, 2012


Greetings from Fort Green!
This weather is perfect for
December to me. Lots of peo-
ple say they want it cold for
Christmas, but I prefer this to
any freezing weather. Back in
the late '50s we lived in
Jacksonville and would come to
Wauchula for Christmas. We
would leave Jacksonville with
the car heater at full blast, and
one particular winter I had on a
wool dress and a long coat.
When we reached Orlando, I
removed the coat. When we got
to the skeleton hotel in Fort
Meade we would roll down the
windows, and when we reached
Wauchula we were ready for the
Bermuda shorts!
Those were the days when.,
Avis Sasser would have all the
Silverman clan for 'Christmas
dinner. Viola Carlton always
made a delicious salad, which I
now make and we have named
it Viola's Silverman salad!
Bobsy Carlton Swift visited
Avis Sasser for a few days, and
as she was leaving Kay Silver-
man Burch from Macon came
for the weekend. It is always
great to have special people,
visit and especially during the
holiday season.
The letter to the editor in last
week's paper from.Hapk Kuhl-'
man was the best he has ever
written, or that's my opinion!.
He actually wrote like he is
beginning to think like a native
or at least someone who has
lived here for over.50 years!:
Fort Green Baptist Church is
small compared to lots of
churches, and I think this pretty
phenomenal that two families
were visitors to Northwest
Florida this .past weekend.
Randy and Fa'e Davis along
with Norma and Edith, Bassett
went to DeFuniak Springs to
attend the graduation of Amy
Brown from Florida Bible
College. John Brown also went
to the graduation. Gary and
Ginny Oden went to attend the
graduation of their grandson,
Taylor Lambert. They all had
safe and" wonderful trips.
Taylor's sister and Beka Brown
were good friends when the
Browns lived in Hardee County.
Congratulations to both gradu-


ates. Amy has practically grown
children, and it is quite an
accomplishment when you
return to college.
Vanette See is in the process
of going to college to be a
nurse, so she will be another
one who deserves a "well done"
when she completes her studies.
She and Jack have a son in
Hardee Junior High School.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Jane
Kennedy on the home-going of
her sister.
Our Sunday School class
party was last Friday night, and
during the festivities Charles
Abbott had to stand as he had a
leg cramp. I told him go on to
the kitchen and drink some dill
pickle juicq because that will
get rid of cramps. Eleanor
Thomas was there and she said
a tablespoon of sugar with a lit-
tle bit of water will, too. I tried
it ,and it works and taste lots
better than dill pickle juice or
yellow mustard!
Ones on the prayer list
include Ollie Davis, a pastor's
wife. in Bowling Green, Vicky
Owens is facing surgery, Charl-
ton Sadler scheduled for knee
surgery on the 10th, Tom Lynn
had a balloon procedure instead
of a stent, Janice Moye Bennett
has never gotten any strength
after being in the hospital for so
long, Betty Waters is having
back trouble and Sam Rawls
was in Lakeland Regional for
..overnight.
SKen Oden said when he was
at All Children's Hospital, there
was a lady there whose small
child needed a heart transplant
and she asked for prayer, so
please pray for all of these and
possibly others that you may
know about.
Fort Green Church had the
Christmas supper after the busi-
ness meeting yesterday
(Wednesday), and a special vis-
itor is supposed to come on
Sunday night after the youth put
on the Christmas program.
Santa Claus always makes a
visit, and all the ladies are
reminded to bring, finger food.
Please pray for one another
and our nation..

won Ford's customer service .

Answering A Call For Bel
A problem of bells not ringing consumers may be missing
has been taking its toll on many important phone calls, and they
Americans-but the nation's rural may not even know it.
telephone cooperatives are seek-


ing a solution.
The Problem
Many rural telephone cus-
tomers have reported not receiv-
ing calls they should and experi-
encing poor quality when it
came to the calls they did get.
Frustrated consumers often
blame their local telephone
companies. but rural telecom-
munications companies are not
at fault.
It is believed that most rural
call completion problems stem
from a practice called least-cost
routing (LCR). in which long-
distance carriers send calls des-
tined for rural consumers to
LCR providers to reduce ex-
penses. In many cases, they/are
not properly routing the call to
its destination and, as a result.
some calls have poor call quali-
ty and many calls are not con-
necting at all. This means rural


Seeking a Solution
The National Telecommuni-
cations Cooperative Associ-
ation (NTCA) and its rural
allies are leading efforts to find
a solution to the problem. The
group. which helped run the
test. recently presented its find-
ings to a task force set up by the
Federal Communications Com-
mission (FCC), which can
impose penalties of up to
$150.000 on carriers that fail to
correct the problem.
The rural group's study found
that call failure rates were 13
times higher in rural areas com-
pared to those in nonrural areas.
The occurrence of poor voice
quality was also significantly
higher in rural areas.
"The results of this project
clearly show that much more
needs to be done to resolve
rural call completion issues,"

said NTCA Chief Executive
Officer Shirley Bloomfield.
"Consumers in rural communi-
ties need to know that their
local phone companies are not
to blame and that rural carriers
are leading efforts to find a per-
manent solution to this epidem-
ic. We recognize that rural
Americans deserve reliable
telephone service for their per-
sonal safety and financial well-
being just as much as urban
consumers deserve it, and we'll
continue to speak out on their
behalf until this problem is
solved."

Light One Candle
I y By Gerald M. Costello
The Christophers

FROM PEARL HARBOR VETERAN TO HOMELESS
He remembers Pearl Harbor. Maybe not quite like it was yes-
terday but, after all, he's 92 years old.
He remembers that a record of the Ink Spots singing "I Don't
Want to Set the World on Fire" was playing when he heard the
dreaded announcement: "Man all battle stations. This is not a drill."
Then Japanese planes struck, bombing his ship, the St. Louis. The
date was Dec. 7, 1941, and the United States, and what seemed like
the whole world, was suddenly at war.
But that was then. This was now, one day last summer, and the
horrors of war appeared to be far away as the. Rev. James E.
Blakely spent some time outside his makeshift home in Brooklyn
talking to writer Denis Hamill talking about his wartime memo-
ries and the years that have rolled by since then.
Hamill wrote about them in a couple of memorable columns
that .appeared in the New York Daily News, describing how
Blakely survived Pearl Harbor and World War II itself, living
through Iwo Jima, Lingayen Gulf, Guadalcanal, the Coral Sea, the
Marshall Islands and Luzon. He has the battle stars to prove it.
And since?
"I saw Jackie Robinson play at Ebbets Field. I lived through
the civil rights movement and the assassinations of JFK and his
brother and Martin Luther King. But I lived so long that I saw
Barack Obama get elected. Boy, oh boy, didn't think I'd ever live
to see a black man in the White House."
Those events held special meaning for Blaely, a black man
himself. The Navy in which he served so 9ariy years ago was seg-
regated at the time, limiting its black personnel to mess hall and
related duties. But Blakely, who had grown up in segregated
Arkansas, tried to remain above the fray: "I was too busy worrying
about the Japanese."
After his discharge late in 1945,.Blakely held some responsi-
ble jobs, raised a family, and became an ordained Baptist thinister.
But recent years had not been so kind. He was fleeced out of his
home, in fact, and when Hamill found him he'was staying in a rusty
trailer with no running water.
He wrote about that in the Daily News, wondering how a 92-
year-old-man who had survived Pearl Harbor could end up virtual-
ly homeless.
That column did the trick. It brought in an outpouring of e-
mails and letters, one of which was from the city's Department of
the Aging. And with it was a new residence in Brooklyn, complete
with a home-delivered meal every day.,Blakely was elated. "Now
I have a shower, a stove, a fridge, an air-conditioner," he said.
"Keys. Boy, oh boy, it's been a long time'since I had keys to a place
of my own."
As Hamill wrote, "He's a gentle man who carries almost no
bitterness. He says his new apartment has made him a happy man.".
Across the years, the Rev. James E. Blakely remembers
Pearl Harbor. He remembers the song that was playing, the relent-
less roar of the Japanese planes, the fear he felt. He remembers so
much more, too: the wartime Pacific battles that seemed to go on
forever until one day when at long last they. were all over.
And now he has the security he needs, the home that will last
him the rest of his life.
"Boy, oh boy," he said. "This is beautiful."
Boy, oh boy, indeed.

Week Ending: December 9,2012
There were only scattered showers during the week.
Precipitation continued to be slightly below normal. The U.S.
Drought Monitor reported the State to be 47 percent abnormally
dry compared to 29 percent the previous week and 36 percent last
-year. Temperatures have been above normal, ranging from the low
'30s to the high 80s. Minimum temperatures ranged from 33
degrees in Putnam Hall to 54 degrees in Fort Lauderdale. Maxi-
mum temperatures ranged from 80 degrees in Carrabelle to 87
degrees in Bronson.
Field Crops: In most northern areas, winter field crops were
struggling due to lack of moisture. In Gadsden County, cotton har-
vesting continued and winter forages continued to be planted.
Harvesting of .u,,ircirime continued.
Fruits & egeiables: Vegetable growers were irrig ting to
keep mnoiltue le\ekl up. Above normal temperatures 10l il1s time
of year ieulted in good growing conditions for vegetables. Tomato
harvest ended in Gadsden County. Vegetables marketed included
corn, cucumbers, green beans, eggplant, lettuce, peppers, radishes,
and tomatoes. Early marketing of strawberries has also been report-
*ed.
Livestock and Pastures: Statewide, the pasture' condition was
very poor to excellent, with most in fair condition. Drought was the
first limit to forage growth, but disease and cold were also prob-
lems. Winter forage was being planted in the Panhandle and north-
ern areas. The condition of the cattle ranged from very poor to
excellent, with most in good condition. In the Panhandle, the pas-
ture condition was very poor to excellent, with most poor to fair.
Drought afid seasonal cool temperatures continued to hurt pasture.
Winter grazing'in Washington .County had not come in yet. Frost
browned the summer pasture. Cattlemen were feeding hay. Winter
forages were being planted. Most cattle were in fair to good condi-
tion. In the northern area, the pasture condition was poor to good,
with most in fair condition. The cattle were in poor to excellent
condition with most in fair condition. In the central area, the pas-
ture condition was very poor to excellent with most in fair condi-
tion. Most cattle were, in fair to good condition. In the southwest
area, the pastures were poor to excellent, with most in fair condi-
Stion. Pastures in Highland County received some precipitation. In
St. Lucie County, above-normal, seasonal temperatures promoted
growing of pasture grasses. The condition of the cattle was very
poor to good with most in good condition.
Citrus: Seasonal daily high temperatures ranged from the
mid-70s to the lower 80s. The drought which returned to the citrus
area the previous week worsened, spreading to include much of the
southern area as well as two northern counties. The return of the
drought last week marked the first instance of drought in the citrus
growing area since Auiiisi Drought measurements were per the
U.S. Drought Monitor; last updated December 2, 2012. All but
seven of the 24 FAWN stations recorded some precipitation last
week. Six stations recorded more than a half-inch, with Belle Glade
recording the most at 1,66 inches. Trees in some areas were strug-
gling to keep the abundant fruit set healthy and growing this sea-
son. Growers were irrigating one to two times a week to keep mois-
ture in the ground and on the trees. Harvest of early and midseason
varieties continued at a heavy pace. Other grove activities includ-
ed mowing and other general grove maintenance. Most juice plants
were open and fruit being.processed will begin to increase weekly.
Shipment of fresh'fruit was moderate, but was expected to increase
with fundraising programs camping up before Christmas. Varieties
being packed primarily include early oranges (mostly Navels), col-
ored grapefruit, and Sunburst tangerines.

Helpful Hints For


Cheerleading Safety


The popularity of cheerlead-
ing continues to rise as record
numbers of cheerleaders and
cheer squads' attend Universal
Cheerleaders Association
Championship events, up almost
tO percent from last year.
According to a survey con-
ducted by Varsity, participating
in athletics helps teen girls make
new friends and gives them a
built-in support system. Playing
team sports generally makes
teen girls happier, builds their
overall confidence and helps
relieve stress.
As in any physical activity,
safety is of the utmost impor-
tance* Parents, coaches and
cheerleaders need'to learn where
the greatest risks lie as well as
the proper way to perform the
techniques. To ensure the safest
conditions, parents should take
an active role in selecting the
right cheer program for their
kids and continue to stay
involved.
"With the current explosion of
participation in cheerleading at
all levels, it is paramount that
parents, coaches and cheerlead-
ing organizations continue to
put safety at the forefront of the
sport," says Dr. Jeff Dugas,
medical director of USA Cheer
and fellowship director at the
American Sports Medicine
Institute.
What Parents Can Do
Parents should ask the follow-
ing questions before their child
starts a cheer program:

Soccer Splits Unusual Week


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald.Acavoate
It was a loss, a tie and a big
win fpr the Hardee boys soccer
squad'last week.
This week, the Wildcats were
at Frostpoof on Tuesday and
play at Lake Placid tomorrow
(Friday). Next week, there is a
trio of games, at Fort Meade on
Monday, home for Avon Park in
a varsity-only match at 8 p.m.
next Tuesday and a trip to
Mulberry on Thursday, Dec. 20
to finish up before the Christ-
mas holiday break.
When play resumes Jan. 10 at
Sebring, it will be followed by a
Jan. 11 trip to Lake Wales and
the home finale on Senior Night
Jan. 16, when 11 seniors will
play their regular season final
game. Hardee host districts
competition on Jan. 21-25.
Hardee currently is 3-2-1 in dis-
trict play.
In last week's action. Hardee
hosted district foe Mulbery and
lost 3-1. "The boys played a lit-,
tle out of sync. Center mid
Armando Alvarez was on the
injured list and his absence was
felt. Also injured is defensive
starter Manuel Palacios." noted
Head Coach Dennis Aubry.
Hardee took more shots but
made less goals. "Mulberry
penetrated our defense and
made some nice crosses." said
Aubry. Mulberry scored' first.


but Hardee answered when
Oscar Palacios scored a few
minutes later. However, Mul-
berry scored in the -second and
in the fourth periods to steal the
win.
The Hardee. JV tied with
Mulberry 2-1, with goals by
Frederik Torres in the first peri-
od and Eduardo Lopez hit on a
perfect curving corer kick in
the third period to tie the game.
Last Thursday, Hardee hosted
another district foe, DeSoto and
played to a 1-1 tie.
"Hardee played well but had
trouble moving the ball effec-
tively in the middle without
starting mid-fielder Armando
Alvarez," said Aubry. Hardee
was able to take only five shots
on goal while the Bulldogs had
14 and pressed the Wildcat
defense hard.
"We scored early on a break-
away by Miguel Garcia 13 min-
utes into the game. We stayed
positive, but DeSoto came back
late in the fourth period and
scored on a corer kick that was
deflected and kicked in." said
Aubry.
The JV 'Cats lost 1-0. The
junior 'Cats played well, mov-
ing as a unit. but DeSoto was
able to score on a sole Hardee
error and Hardee was unable to
capitalize on any of its attack-
ing runs. summarized Aubry.
The week's final was a varsi-


ty-only irip o Lakiland
Teneroc, "where Hardee was
clearly the more skilled team
and controlled the ball the
entire game," said Aubry.
Hardee won. 5-0, with four
goals 'by Garcia and one by
freshman Oscar Duarte. Garcia
scored in each period except the
second, mostly, on breakaways.
"Once he was, fed the ball, he
scored." Duarte scored on an
outside shot that he first settled
with one touch before making a
power shot.
Hardee made 24 shots on
goal with Teneroc not getting
any shots on goal.
Other varsity players are
Gilberto Cardoza, Luis Alonso,
Ruben Velasquez, Luis Luna,
Octavio Alvares, Mark Gomez,
Alexis Palacios, Carlos De-
Loera, Martin Lucatero,. Cam-
pel Aubry and goalie Jesus
Zuniga.
For the JV. other players are
Gustavo Toledo, who often
moves up for a varsity-only
game, Ezequiel Perez, Filistin

Saturday saw only one major college game. The annual Army-
Navy Classic was just that. Army was driving for what looked like
the winning drive in the last minute when a fumble ended its
dream. The Army quarterback took the loss very emotionally. I'm
usually impartial to the great academies when they play but this
time. I was pulling for Army. It would have been nice to see the 10-
year drought broken.
The coaches carousel has been in full play since the last
games. USF did fire Skip Holtz and replaced him with Willie
'Taggart, head coach at Western Kentucky. Taggart is a Palmetto
native. He has done a good job with the Hilltoppers who are bowl
bound this year. Look for better recruiting for the Bulls in this area.
There is ample talent within 100 miles of USF for the Bulls to dom-
inate the Big East.
The Bowl matchups this seai- are unusual to say the least.
Northern Illinois playing FSU in the Orange Bowl is the most
absurd. A Mid-American Conference has no business in a major
bowl. Of course, it is an opportunity for an ACC team to finally win
a BCS Bowl Another MAC team, Ball St., will face UCF in the
Beef 0' Bradys Bowl in St. Pete. The Florida Gators will face
Charlie Strong and his Louisville Cardinals in the Sugar Bowl.
The Heismian Trophy made history when the only freshman
won it this weekend. Texas A&M Quarterback, Johnny Manziel,
.known as Mr. Football took the Heisman after an amazing season
that saw the Aggies go 10-2 in their first SEC season. The young
man's acceptance speech was far more mature than his age. He
came off like a fifth-year senior with humility and praise for every-
one who helped him achieve his goal.
35 Bowl Games dot the Holiday Season. There are just three
this week .
1. New Mexico Bowl Nevada 7-5.vs. Arizona 7-5. Rich
Rod has made it to another bowl. The Wildcats should have no
problem with Nevada. Arizona 31 Nevada 17.
2. Idaho Potato Bowl Toledo 9-3 at Utah St. 10-2. Utah St.
is solid in all aspects of the game. Watch especially for special
teams play. UtahSt. 34 Toledo 21.
3. Poinsettia Bowl BYU 7-5 at.San Diego St. 9-3. BYU
will win.a close one This might.be the most evenly matched bowl.

LUNCHMATES


RIDE WITH PRIDE!


COURTESY PHOTO
Parents of pupils at Zolfo Springs Elementary School had a fun and memorable time
eating with their children in the school cafeteria during Parent Lunch Week. Students
were all smiles as they enjoyed lunch with friends and family.


son in high fashion.
The boys picked up road wins
over Lake Placid, Avon Park
and DeSoto last week to get a
strong start.
They continue on the toad
this week, going to Frostproof
on Monday, Sebring on Tues-
day and Mulberry tomorrow
(Friday). Next week concludes
the first season with a, pair of
home games, the first District
10 opponent, Auburndale, com-
ihg in on Tuesday and DeSoto
coming up for a re-match on
Thursday.
Head Coach Vance Dickey
was upbeat about'the three vic-
tories last week, especially
beating Desoto on: its own court
on Friday night.
Last week began with a
Tuesday trip to Lake Placid,
which doesn't have size this
year and had quite a few
turnovers, noted Dickey. Har-
dee pulled down 62 rebounds
with its big men, 6-4 Derrick
Graham and 6-2 Keyon Brown
and Steve Metayer. Brown
grabbed 19 rebounds and added
20 .points to pace the Wildcats.
Metayer was just as evident
with his 20 points, including
five-of-six at the charity stripe.
Overall, The Wildcats were 18
for 38 in free throws.
Graham added eight points,
Christian Mpralez and Kane
Casso each a half dozen, Lu-
cious Everett five and Mark
Elsbury four. Others on the var-
sity are juniors Luke Palmer
and James Greene, soph Jordan
Jones and freshman Marco
DeLeon.
The team's second game was
last Thursday at Avon Park. It


was a close encounter all the
way. Hardee led 16-10 at the
end of the first period but only
24-21 at halftime. It was a slim
36-34 advantage at the end of
the third, when Kasso got hot
and scored a trio of treys to put.
the game out of reach, with
Hardee winning 59-50.
"It was close all the way, but
we took care of the ball down
the stretch," commented
Dickey.
Hardee was 7-of-15 from the
free-throw line, while the Red
Devils were 8-of-13.
Brown again paced the
Wildcats with 22 points and 16
rebounds. Beside Brown and
Casso, scoring included 14
points- from Metayer, a half
dozen from Everett, four from
Graham and two apiece from
Morale nrjd El'bur)
The Friday: finale for- the
week was icing on the cake. as
the Wildcats came from behind
for the win at DeSoto. "We
were able to foul out their two
big men, Reggie Jones and Kari
Williams. Derrick had 12 re-
bounds, several assists, a nice
dunk to get us on a roll,and a
good floor game, "noted
Dickey.
Hardee also dominated at the
charity stripe, with 26 tries
against 17 for Desoto. Hardee
made 12 but DeSoto only
seven. "I tell the players, even if
you don't make the shot, when
you get to the free throw line,
it's a foul on the opponent and
makes him think twice about
trying to stop you," said
Dickey.
Casso led the scoring with 17
points. Graham and Moralez
each canned 15 points. Brown
had 11 points to go with 11
rebounds and Metayer also had
11 points, putting five players

SEEDS
FROM
-,- THE
SOWER



It had been a day of rain
and wind. After the clouds
gave way to the sunshine, a
mother decided to take her
two sons for a walk. As they
passed a large mud puddle,
the older son pushed his
smaller brother into it. Aston-
ished, the mother asked,
"Why did you do that?" "Be-
cause," he replied, "I was
tricked." "What do you mean
tricked?" she asked. "Well,"
he replied, "when the idea
first came to my mind, it felt
Sso good that I thought the
Lord was talking to me and
telling me to do it. But I guess
it was the devil."
It is not always safe to go
by our feelings. It is not al-
ways wise to go by the wis-
dom of this world. And it is
not always smart to go by the
sayings of others. But it is
safe to put our faith and trust
in God and to follow His
Word. Faith has no value of
its own unless it is accompa-
nied by works that honor
God. We read in the Bible that
His Word is true and useful
and will show us what is right
or wrong in our lives that it
will always put our faith in
God ahead of our feelings.

GENERATIONS
As science and medicine discover more means of
longevity, we will see increasing members of different
generations alive together. The opportunity for older
generations to share wisdom with the younger is
tremendous; especially now that communication is
more sophisticated and instantaneous around the
world. With all of today's technology, we can share
and be an illustration to all generations that the
wisdom of a strong faith in God is foremost. Psalm
100:5 says, "For the Lord is good and his love
endures forever; his faithfulness continues through
all generations." Remember to worship together as a
family this and every week.

CARS DID NOT HAVE AIR


CONDITIONERS OR RADIOS


By KIRSTEN RAMIREZ
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your full name?
A: Bettie J. Luallen.
Q: When is your birthday?
A: July 16, 1943.
Q: Where were you born?
A: Elba, Ala.
Q: What did you do for fun when
you were around 15?
A: I played basketball. We did not
have a net on the hoop. We would go
out to our neighbor's yard, and he had a
backb6ard nailed up to a palm tree and
that's what we used for a hoop..
Q: What was your school like?
A: It was a pretty good-sized school.
It was called Martin County School.
Lots of people in the town went there.
Girls had classes like home ec. Girls
could also learn to sew and the next
room down would be a cooking class.
They. would put four people to a group
and cook from scratch.
Q: Was there a mixture of grades in
your school?
A: Yes, there was. There was some
high school and junior high. In elemen-
tary there were two grades per room.
We only had five rooms all together.
Q: What was your means of trans-
portation to school?
A: I had to ride a bus to school.
Sometimes my dad would bring me to
school. My bus stop was about seven
blocks down the road. Sometimes we
had to walk every afternoon. If it was
raining we would still have to walk
back and forth.
Q: When did you get your first
car?
A: When I was in my mid-20s. I got
my driver's license when I was 21.
Q: What type of car was it?
A: It was a Chevrolet. It was decent
when I first got it.
Q: What was the average price for
a gallon of gas?
A: The average price was 20-30
cents.

.iiM,, t.. -- .


Q: What was your first job?
A: I worked at a grocery-store as a
cashier. Sometimes I would clean
shelves or dust off shelves. I enjoyed
the people I worked with.
Q: How much did it pay?
A: I would get paid 50-75 dents at a
time. When I got paid I was happy and
proud to have some money. However,
when I got paid I would have to go out
and buy uniforms.
Q: What were the hours you had to
work?
A: It varied. Sometimes I would work
from 8 o'clock 'til lunch. My brother
would pick me up from lunch, and I
would take however much time I need-
ed to eat lunch and my brother would
take me back to work and I would have
to stay 'til 5.
Q: What do you think about the
changesin technology over time?
A: I dislike it. Things are moving too
fast. There are too many hackers and
people like them out there, it's not even
funny. I will not have a computer
because of how many hackers can hack
into my personal stuff. Computers are a
downfall.
Q: What is one thing you wish
would have stayed the same?
A: The cars. I love the classics. No
air conditioner. No radio. I loved it.
Q: What is one thing you're glad
has changed?
A: Stoves. Making food is so. much
easier with
these' ,
advanced .j: C stovetops. .
Q: What
did your parents do for a living?
'A: Worked in the groves. Mainly
packing and selling fruit.
Q: What were some games you
played with your friends or siblings?
A: We would go outside and chase
each other or play hide-and-seek: We
would also go play basketball when we
had the chance We would take our


bikes out and just ride them.
Q: What were considered luxuries
when you were younger?
A: Cars. If you had a car, all you
could do was brag to others who didn't
have a car.
Q: What kind of music did you
grow up listening to?
A: Country. Mainly artists like
Loretta Lynn or Tammy Wynette. All
these country Nashville songs. Hip-hop
can go! Hip-hop is not singing. It
sounds like they are mumbling to them-
selves most the time:
Q: What kind of house did you
grow up in?
A: A log house. Each room was dif-
ferent. I had my own room. My brothers
had their own room, too.
Q: How have movies changed?
A: Movies have changed so much!
For cartoons, we would watch things
like Tweety Bird and Mickey Mouse. It
seems like everything has went from

Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee junior varsity
girls team is showing constant
improvement.
They put a resounding excla-
mation on their process with a
49-21 home win over Lake
Wales last week.
SThis week, they were home
for Auburndale on Tuesday,
traveled to' Frostproof today
(Thursday) and are .at Teneroc
on Friday. The first season ends
with a Dec. 18 trip to Auburn-
dale before the holiday break.
Coach Andy Maddox has
been pleased, with his team's
progress and, especially, their
recent win.
The girls started the season
with a-close 35-32 loss at home
against southern rival DeSoto.
Soph Jakaysha Lindsey led the
. junior Lady Cats with 14 points.
Freshman Annabel Retana
came on late with eight points
in the fourth quarter rally. Soph
Alexi Santana also had eight
points, while classmate Ma-

wild to wilder. They went overboard.
It's ridiculous!
Q: What sports were popular?
A: Simple sports like football, basket-
ball, baseball. Football did not have
thick pads. They had shoulder pads and
helmets. Other sports were noticed, too,
like-golf, tennis, track and cheer.
Q: What did you want to be when
you got older?
A: A mom. Every girl wishes to have
a perfect life with a husband and maybe
a family of their own. When I was
younger I wanted to be a housewife. I
am pretty much living the life I wanted
to live 50 years ago.
Back In Time is the result of a class
assignment given to ninth graders at
Hardee Senior High School. Each stu-
dent is asked to interview an older
person. Selected interviews are pub-
lished here as an encouragement to
the students and for the enjoyment of
our readers.

The Push is On
by Susan Barton, HHS Science Coach


In 1961 President John F. Kennedy
urged America to put a ,man on
the moon within a decade. An
unprecedented challenge since we had
yet to send a man into space. However,
his vision set a new world into motion
as scientists, mathematicians, and
engineers came together to solve the
myriad of problems they faced in
reaching the extraordinary goal. The
objective was set, the push was on,
.and the vision was fulfilled as Neil
Armstrong took his historic lunar step.
Once again, America is in need
of men and women that have been
prepared to meet the science,
technology, engineering, and
mathematics (STEM) challenges of
the 21st Century. President Barack
Obama stated recently, "Today, more
than ever before, science holds the
key to our survival as a planet and our
security and prosperity as a nation.
It's time we once again put science
at the top of our agenda and work to
restore America's place as the world
leader in science and technology."
America has many. concerns
including increased energy needs,
health and medical issues, clean
air and water, and adequate food
production, to name a few. To be able
to find solutions to the problems we
will face in this century, America
must adjust its educational focus.
Dr. Michael Brown, former Nobel
Prize winner for medicine, reflected,
"if America is to maintain our high


standard of living, we must continue
to innovate. We are competing with
nations many times our size. We don't
have a single brain to waste. Math and
science are the engines of innovation.
With these engines we can lead the
world. We must demystify math and
science so that all students feel the
joy that follows understanding."
The need for a push in STEM
instruction becomes more evident
when one looks at the data. Alex
Tabarrok, in the Chronicle Review,
reported that the United States
graduated more' college students
with degrees in computer science 25
years ago than in 2009. Additionally
he wrote, "In '2009, only 2480
students graduated with bachelor's
degrees in. microbiology about
the same number as 25 years ago.
When one thinks of the problems
arising in the field of microbiology,
such, as antibiotic resistance,
who will be there to carry out the
research?" The problem is not
.complicated or irresolvable; we
simply need more students to choose
careers in STEM-related fields.
Hardee High School has embraced
the STEM challenge. Changes in
science and math instruction are
leading students to higher and more
complex levels of understanding.
Physics, Chemistry,' Biology,
Human Anatomy and Physiology,
are taught with an emphasis on real
world problem-solving and inquiry-


In the Introduction to Information Technology classes students learn all aspects of com-
puters. Pictured here, Alex Rodriguez diligently works on a computer, taking it apart
and learning the names of all the pieces. He will then have the task of putting it back
together with his group on the next day., The students really enjoy the hands-on activity!


based lab activities, insuring that our
students are prepared for STEM-related
college and career choices. Additionally,
classes such as Gaming and Simulations
Foundations, Agricultural Biotechnology,
and AP Calculus are now being offered
to expand student's STEM experiences.
Motivated HHS students have excelled
in carrying out research projects for
the Science and Engineering Fair,,
competing on the state and national
level. Still others have participated in
a new STEM Scholars program where
they experience Science Forums and
Engineering Challenges at Florida Gulf
Coast University and South Florida State


College. A new club, Alpha Zeta Pi, has
been established to encourage students to
pursue STEM related opportunities. The
aim of HHS is to increase the number of
participants in these programs each-year.
HHS math and science teachers are
working harder than, ever to provide
excellent instruction. It is now time
for students to step up, study hard, and
take responsibility for their learning
so they, will be equipped to succeed
in the 21st Century, and help meet the
technology demands of America's future.
The objective of STEM instruction has
been set, the push is on, and Hardee
High School has a vision to be fulfilled.

ann Rivera with CBS EcoMedia President & Founder Paul Polizzotto, AT&T

ting Coach Derek Shelton, and McDonald's Owner/Operator Lanny Sumpter.


The Agricultural Biotechnology class recently visited the UF Range Cattle Re-
search and Education Center in Ona where they learned about the best feed
grasses for cattle and the pH and herbicide experiments being carried out on
various plants. Pictured here, HHS Ag student Netza Garcia is observing the live
microorganisms that breakdown cellulose in cattle rumen.


HHS STEM Scholars recently visited 5th grade students at
Zolfo Springs Elementary to share their Science Fair experienc-
es. Here, Ana Galvez mentors students on their science projects.
