Broadband Selloff Will



Not Affect Local Service


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Nobody in Hardee County
will lose access to broadband.
"We will not let that happen,"
said Dustin Furman, president
and CEO for Rapid Systems,
the provider to the system
which has brought broadband to
the farthest reaches of the coun-
ty.
The issue arose because of a
notice of Monday's 9 a.m. auc-
tion of equipment on five Rapid
System poles in the county,
those on River, Everett Whid-
den, Olliff and Crewsville roads
and Fox Street in'Zolfo Springs.
Equipment for bid includes
stackable units, pipes, cables,
hardware, lightning protectors
and weatherproofing, and ra-
diowave interfaces, all of which
can be replaced without affect-
ing service to the local cus-
tomer.
Furman explained that the
entire broadband network is
redundant, meaning that if one
portion were to shut down for
any reason, it would automati-
cally go to an alternate route.


There are three rings on poles in
Hardee County, so traffic can
continue in case of a lightning
strike or whatever. If it can't go
on one ring, it defaults to anoth-
er, says Furman.
The Ona level 3 interconnect
brings fiber connectivity, but
that can be handled on a No. 14
site as well. "It's the beauty of
the original network, redundan-
cy. So, as we take equipment off
one pole, we'll immediately
replace it with our own. No one
in Hardee County will lose
broadband access," promised
Furman.
Rapid Systems is selling the
equipment on the five poles to
settle an unpaid $1.15 million
owed by Florida Rural Broad-
band Alliance (FRBA), which
had installed it to create a "mid-
dle mile" connectivity to coun-
ties to the east and south and
bring them on to the broadband
system Hardee County has.
The Hardee County Industrial
Development Authority (IDA)
and Rapid Systems had worked
together since 2009 under a
Economic Development Au-


thority (EDA) grant to bring the
original system to Hardee
County. IDA and Rapid Sy-
stems had each contributed $2
million to the pot and Rapid
Systems had put the original
equipment on the poles. When
the FRBA agreement came up,
they removed theirs and al-
lowed FRBA to put its equip-
ment on instead. FRBA has not
lived up to its commitments,
explained -Denise 'Hamilton,
.vice-president and CFO of
Rapid Systems.

Kornegay was recently cho-
sen as the president of Bio-
Nitrogen, the cleantech compa-
ny constructing a plant off CR
663 just north of the Vandolah
Power Plant. Already Chief
Financial Officer, Kornegay
added the additional duties to
his challenges at the Doral-
based company.
He will speak at the Sweet
Sorghum Ethanol Association's
(SSEA) annual conference to an
audience of academics, govern-
ment officials and industry
experts about the patented envi-
ronmentally-friendly process
for the production of urea fertil-
izer from biomass (vegetative
materials), and its benefits and
advantages.

organization devoted to the
development of renewable and
sustainable resources and pro-
cessing them into ethanol and
other bio-derivatives.
"I look forward to presenting
at this month's SSEA event,"
said Kornegay. "The SSEA con-
ference offers BioNitrogen an
opportunity to showcase our
patented technologies and high-
light the company's recent
achievements and milestones,
including the purchase of 600
acres of land in Hardee County

ceptual engineering and initial
feasibility study for our first
plant."
Originally, BioNitrogen
planned to build its first plant
near Houston, Texas, near the
Texas Tech University where
the unique biotechnology was
developed in a quest to find an
effective way to provide a
domestically produced high
nitrogen fertilizer and have the
United States less dependent on
imports from China or the

The detour starts on Tuesday.
Over four miles of Sweet-
water Road will be closed
beginning Jan. 29.
That's when work will begin
on replacing a pair of one-lane
wooden bridges with two-lane
concrete ones, a job which is
expected to take 90 days.
Detour, routes will be either
the paved Crewsville Road or,
for local drivers, the unpaved
George Marsh Road. There will
be message boards and signs
alerting drivers to the detours.
It's part of a six-month resur-
facing project on the last half of
the road. The south half was
paved well over a year ago.
This portion, funded by a state
Department of Transportation
grant, includes the two bridges.

The first baby for Hardee
County in the new year is ...
Ian Jay DeLaRosa!
Ian was born on Jan. 1 at
9:30 p.m. to parents Vanessa
Garza and Jonathan DeLaRosa
of Wauchula.
With no other reports from
area hospitals or any local resi-
dents, it would appear that Ian
was the first New Year's Day
baby for Hardee County.
His Jan. 1 birth came as a
surprise to his parents, who
weren't expecting him until Jan.
10.
The new mom, Garza, says
her labor started shortly after
she and her fiance, DeLaRosa,
returned home after attending a
New Year's Eve party at her in-
laws. She fell asleep, but about
two hours later woke up feeling
contractions.
Garza then woke DeLaRosa,
and the couple left for Florida
See BABY 2A


November, the Hardee County
Commission opted for comple-
tion of the bridges and less of
the actual paving. It seems the
SCOP (Small County Opera-
tions Program) funding maxed
out at $2,228,991.09 when the
lowest bid for the work, from
Ajax Paving Inc., came in at
$3,267,557.42.
To meet the available fund-
ing, Ken Wheeler, county engi-
neer/director suggested two op-
tions, either paving the entire
4.66 miles of road and leaving
the bridges and their approach-
es undone, or completing both
bridges and about two miles of
paving. He recommended the
second option due to the financ-
ing and said county staff could
complete the paving, while they
couldn't do the bridge work.

Senior Play Opens Tomorrow


By MARIA TRUJILLO
Of The Herald-Advocate
The mysterious, and some-
times creepy, tales of Edgar
Allan Poe are making their way
to Hardee Senior High School.
But this time it won't be an
English class that will be trying
to decipher the meaning behind
"The Fall of the House of
Usher" or "The Raven," instead
the stories will become a paro-
dy onstage.
The Class of 2013 is putting
on the annual senior play, and
this year Poe's works of litera-
ture have a significant role in
the production.
The play, "Usher: A Totally


Teen Comedy," was written by
Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus.
It is a comedy based on several
tales and poems written by Poe.
It begins when a bus full of
teenagers breaks down, leaving
them stranded. They make their
way to a nearby old haunted
mansion, which happens to be
the House of Usher.
The teens are then forced to
stay the night in the creepy
mansion due to a storm. This is
good news for Madeline Usher,
who takes the opportunity to try
and set up her depressed broth-
er, Roderick Usher, with any of
the girls.
By doing this, she hopes to


break the curse that was placed
on the spirits of the ancestors of
the mansion long ago.
To add even more of a Poe
feel to the play, there are sever-
al ghosts among the living cast.
The production will be for
only three nights, starting
tomorrow (Friday) at 7 then
another on Saturday at 7 p.m.
and the last on Sunday at 2:30
p.m. There will also be a special
showing for the senior class
tomorrow earlier in the day.
The show runs for about 80
minutes, with a 10-minute in-
termission in between. Tickets
are $5 each. All performances
are at the high school's auditori-


um.
The cast includes director
Jan Brutus with seniors Rosa-
linda Alvarez, Will Bennett,
Amber Bonett, Jessica Brewer,
Mercedes Cisneros, Mariela
Delacruz, Jacob Evans, Cas-
sandra Gilman, Tiffanie Green,
Yuri Gutierrez, Allison Hunter,
Adam Khang, Janet Lopez,
Adna Metayer, Isarella Mo-
linaro, Ana Montanez, Alan
Murphy, Kaylee Myers, Lauren
Page, Stephanie Perez, Justin

Ruiz, Stuart Spinks, Robyn

ferred, getting the bridge work
done with the state dollars
because, with the.economy the .
way it is, getting more money
for more bridge work could be
uncertain. He recommended the
commission-i.nitiated change
order B for the work.
"Normally, I'm against

county has initiated it to come
within the state funding, I'll
make a motion for 'that," said,
Johnson. '
Commissioner Rick Knight

can't use our manpower to

ey may come."

FRBA is a limited liability
company that had received a
$24 million federal award to
extend broadband technology to
other counties and cities in
regional rural economic devel-
opment regions in the state. One
is Opportunity Florida in Cal-
houn, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf,
Holmes, Jefferson, Jackson,
Liberty and Washington coun-
ties in northwest Florida.
The other is in the South
Central Rural Economic Devel-
opment, including Hardee, De-
Soto, Glades, Hendry, High-
lands and Okeechobee counties
and the unincorporated areas of
Immokalee in Collier County,
which comprises most of the
Florida Heartland Rural Ec-
onomic Development Initiative
(FHREDI).
Both of these rural areas had
been designated as Rural Areas
of Critical Economic Concern
(RACEC) by the governor,
meaning they were under-
served, economically disadvan-
taged communities and making
them available for state and fed-
eral 'funding.
FRBA, a coalition of the two
RACECs, received its money
under the 2009 American Re-
covery and Investment Act in a
stimnulus package called the
Broadband Technology Oppor-
tunities Program, designed to
provide what is called middle
mile cost-effective broadband
infrastructure and capacity to
areas without it and "improve
education, public health and
safety, and economic develop-
merft in underserved areas."
It was the goal to work off the
broadband system already in
place in Hardee County through
the Rapid Systems technology
' installed throughout the county
and, in turn, put a data center in
Hardee County to interconnect
all these.' '
in March 2010, FRBA and

tion closes to CR 663 so it can

Authority. '
Thespur will connect the Davis
property site" to. the CSX rail-
road on the west side of CR
663. It will require state De-
partment of Transportation per-
mits for the railroad crossing..
The spur will also'. circle the
BioNitrogen plant and connect
to "additional supportive, indus-
tries expected to locate on that
property.
BioNitrogen is expected to
employ 52 employees initially
in its 24-7, 345-day .schedule
which allows for brief hiatuses
for maintenance. Additional
employees will be needed to
transport materials and for the
supportive industries expected
in the future.

By MICHAEL KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Hardee County Com-
mission once again spent nearly
two hours discussing the
Industrial Development Au-
thority at its last meeting, and
opinions still differ on how to
move forward.
Commissioner Mike Thomp-
son started the discussions by
asking to review State Statute
189, which deals with special
districts created by the county
and what involvement and
oversight the BOCC has over
them.
Thompson wanted to hire a
private and independent firm to
conduct an oversight review of
the -IDA and make recommen-
dations to improve its opera-
tions moving forward.
"I think what the IDA board
needs and this board (BOCC)
needs is more public confidence
in what's going on," he said.
"My intention here is not to tear
the IDA down but rather to
build it up."
Commission Chairman Sue
Birge disagreed. She said the
IDA has already gone through
an operational audit, a financial
audit and now the University of
South Florida is now doing a
performance study.
"How many more audits and
reviews do we need," Birge
asked. "What's it going to take
for people to be satisfied?"
Grady Johnson has been
insistent since the Joint Leg-
islative Auditing Committee
sent a letter in 2011 that the
IDA was out of compliance that
something should be done by
the BOCC.
County Attorney Ken Evers
reminded Johnson the IDA has
received documentation from
the state saying it is now in full
compliance with all the finan-


lize the Hardee County Broad-
band Network as part of
FRBA's BTOP match." It asks
that IDA or the county respond
within 10 days whether it would
continue or discontinue' the
relationship and asks that that
any questions be referred to
FRBA co-manager Gina Reyn-
olds.
While all the disagreement is
being settled, Rapid Systems
wants to replace the FRBA
equipment and put its own back
on the five poles in question.
Bidders can visit the sites of
each of the poles and inspect
the equipment there, which is
being sold in an "as is" manner.
Rapid Systems says it will step
by step replace each item sold
without losing any local broad-
band service because of its
redundant system.


cial reporting requirements.
Colon Lambert said he was
happy with Hardee County the
way it currently is, but he rec-
ognizes the county is facing
some serious economic issues
with Greening threating the cit-
rus industry and preparing for
the post-mining economy.
"With all the drama sur-
rounding the IDA, if I was a
business looking to locate here
it would almost be a last resort,"
he said.
Lambert then said he would
prefer waiting until the final
auditor general report before
considering conducting another
review.
Rick Knight agreed that any
review should come after the
final report is received.
Thompson then said he.came,
to the meeting prepared to make
a motion to conduct a review,
but now instead he wanted to
reserve the right to further dis-
cuss this in the future.
"I don't think just declaring
this thing is going to be OK is
going to work, honestly with all
due respect to the IDA," he con-
cluded.
Johnson then asked Evers
who -hired Economic Devel-
opment Director Bill Lambert
and who has the authority to
fire him.
Evers said Lambert is and
employee of the Economic
Development Council and ortly
that board can fire him, not the
BOCC.
Johnson then asked if the
BOCC has any control over
who the EDC hires.
Evers again told. him no.
"You have to understand the
EDC is not a special district, it
is a private corporation," Evers
told Johnson.
Evers said the only control

the BOCC has is by choosing to

Evers also said the IDA was
created by the Florida Legis-
lature and its governance falls
under State Statute 159, and
that Statute 189 refers to special
districts the BOCC creates.
Sara Pelham, the economic
'development coordinator for
the EDC/IDA, said the EDC
will be applying for grant
money from either the IDA or
EDA to keep the BOCC from
using ad-valorem tax dollars for
operating the economic devel-
opment offices.
Citizen Don Bissett then
spoke to the commission and
said their job was to protect the
people of Hardee County.
He informed Evers that a
complaint has been filed against
him with the Florida Bar
Association over a conflict of
interest by him representing the
BOCC and the IDA.
Evers has previously stated
there is no conflict and one
would only arise if the two
boards took adverse actions
against one another, and at that
point he himself would declare
a conflict.
Bissett then asked the people
causing the problems to step
down because of their incompe-
. tence and let someone else step
in.
Pelham then brought a reso-
lution before the board for them
to recognize Production &
Fabrication Manufacturing, a
new business moving into the
Commerce Park, as a
"Qualified Targeted Industry"
by the BOCC.
Declaring the robotic engine
manufacturing company as a
targeted industry by way of a
county resolution would allow
the business to receive tax
breaks and incentives from
Enterprise Florida 'under the
Brownfield Redevelopment
Bonus Refund Program.
There are six targeted indus-
tries declared by the Florida
Heartland Rural Economic
Development Initiative. They'
include alternative energy, agri-
business, green building com-,
ponents, healthcare and science,
niche manufacturing, and logis-
tics and distribution.
The company plans average
annual wages of $37,000, and

could receive a $6,000 refund
per job created from the state-
plus additional monies up to,
$2,000 per job if it pays 200
percent of the average county
wage.
Pelham said this was a mile-
stone for Hardee County, as this
is the first qualified target
industry to locate in the county.
The last controversial item of
the evening came when Birge
brought up an add-on agenda
item to review and approve the
draft response to the Auditor
General's Office regarding its
finding concerning the BOCC.
The 13BOCC is disputing the
auditors general's opinion that
the IDA is a component unit.
Johnson immediately dis-
agreed, saying he thought the
BOCC should go with the audi-
tor's determination and not dis-
pute it. He also objected to get-
ting the draft at the meeting as
an add-on agenda item at the
last minute.
Mike Carter, a partner with
the accounting firm Clifton
Larson Allen, which does the
county audits and does account-
ing work for the IDA, said there
was a criteria for determining
whether the IDA is a compo-
nent or non-component unit of
the county.
He said it basically means,
does the BOCC have the
authority to overrule IDA deci-
sions, hire or fire its employees,
has any direct control over the
$42 million from the Mosaic
agreement, and whether the
IDA provides a benefit or bur-
den to the BOCC?
He said out of the seven
benchmarks, the BOCC only
appoints, it members and it has
no authority over 'personnel
decisions or budgetary issues
and cannot veto or modify deci-
sions made by the IDA.
Carter said the auditor gener-
al feels the IDA does provide a
burden to the BOCC because it
signed the agreement with
Mosaic and therefore had con-
trol over, the money at one
point.
Lambert, who made the
motion to declare the IDA a
non-component unit, said if the
Auditor General's Office will
not change its opinion that the
IDA is a component unit, then
the county can accept it and go
along with it.
"It's just an accounting thing
and I don't know why anybody
cares," he said. "If they come
back and say we are wrong,
then it doesn't hurt anything
and I am all right with that."
The response to the auditor
general passed 4-1, with
Johnson opposing it.
Staff writer Joan Seaman con-
tributed to this report.

Still No Word


On Bar Death


By CYNTHIA KRAHL
Of The Herald-Advocate
The Polk County Sheriff's
Office continues to investigate
a Jan. 11 death at a bar just
north of the Hardee County
line.
"Our detectives are still dili-
gently working this case," said
Carrie Eleazer, public informa-
tion officer for the PCSO, on
Tuesday of this week.
"When they are done with all
their interviews and investiga-
tion, they will turn all of their
findings over to the state attor-
ney," she added.
I Whether dr'hot the incident at'
the Country Club Liquor
Lounge on U.S. 17 near County
Line Road, just north of
Bowling Green, will result in
any criminal prosecution re-
mains unknown at this time.
In .fact, the PCSO at first, in
the afternoon of Jan. 11, would
confirm only that its deputies


responded at 2 a.m. "to a report
of a person who was not breath-
ing at the location."
The deceased man's name
was not released, but it was
noted that earlier in the evening
he and other patrons of the bar
were involved in "a distur-
bance." No connection between
the events was confirmed.
Later on Jan. 11, the PCSO
released the man's name, Kel-
vin Lee Morris, 43, of Winter
Haven.
"No other details are avail-
able at this time," the PCSO
said..
Eleazer on- Tuesday of- this'
week confirmed that an autopsy
was conducted, and that the
cause of death was "blunt force
trauma."
The PCSO has not released
any further information as the
investigation remains open and
ongoing.

Ref: Governor's open house Wauchula

Dear Mr. Davis:
It is very clear by your letter (copy enclosed) that you choose
to ignore the gravity of the situation here in Hardee County.
Recalling our conversation I can only hope your failure to compre-
hend the seriousness of the issues is that of inexperience. But given
your position I have to believe you minimized the issues therefore
your intent within your letter was simply to throw me under the bus
as a troublemaker. Mr. Davis, I have been thrown under the bus,
demonized and my life threatened by those attempting to deny me '
my required statutory duty on the behalf of the Hardee County cit-
izens as it applies to accountability and transparency.
My recollection df the Governor's refusal to see me was your
decision and that decision left me with you. You wanted to know
what I wanted with the Governor and as we were moving to the
front of the auditorium for a private conversation you brought up
Mr. Hank Kuhlman who already had seen the governor. It was clear
that Mr. Kuhlman laid it all out as to the Audit General's report as
well as his version of what has been happening with the Hardee
County BOCC, the EDA, IDA, EDC and the public funds in which
they were entrusted.
As a county commissioner my conversation with the governor
would have been somewhat different than I had with you. Your ref-
erence to Mr. Kuhlman clearly acknowledged that you knew
already who I was when it comes to Hardee County and the prob-
lems here. Given your inquiry I chose to give you an overview
from my perspective of what has been going on in Hardee County.
I exposed to you my efforts in trying to get some help on the behalf
of the Hardee County citizens to prove or disprove what many
believe as well as I do to be serious wrong doing according to state
statutes interpretation. Therefore I-am confused with your remark
about allegations of misconduct by public officials as well as the
local Economic Development office.
There is correspondence after correspondence from the State
of Florida and BOCC meeting after meeting that show the Hardee
County BOCC has failed to address the serious issues that are with-
in the Board's oversight. Not only is there written documentation
but also video that shows what I call the blind eye syndrome to evi-
dence that substantiates what I believe to be ethically and statuto-
rily wrong.
In addition the Audit General has made it clear in twelve mate-
rial findings that show statutes have been violated and that a num-
ber of other statutory issues are in question and they are asking for
written explanations as to failure in applying Florida Statues.
As for your disappointing letter and its direction let me make
it clear as to where we are. According to evidence in my possession
the state attorney has all ready dropped the ball in Hardee County
some time ago. As for FDLE they have always had a limited abili-
ty in this type of investigation. That limited ability was compound-
ed when the Governor cut them to the bone in their budget. (One
exception which is funding for the Governor's protection). As for
the Ethics Commission many people in this county are waiting for
their arrival according to reports of complaints that have been filed.
In addition, for my party to have four Republican State
Representatives involved with one of the damndest sweetheart
deals I have ever seen involving public funds and even though the
Audit General shows that State Statutes were violated, I have to
believe little or nothipg~ will happen to protect the public interest in
this particular, arena.At this point, if there is no federal involve-
ment, Hardee County will continue to suffer the loss. So in the next
nine years we have somewhere between a hundred and a hundred
and thirty million dollars income stream for economic develop-
ment that is up for grabs. If accountability fails I am sure we will
see more legislators in Hardee County.
You wrote on a sticky note the name of the Governors General
Counsel, Thomas Winokut 850-488-7146 and instructed me to call.
In addition you made it clear that I should tell who ever answers
the phone to use your name and that would get me right through to
Mr. Winokut. I called and he did not return my call.

Very truly yours,
Grady Johnson
Commissioner Hardee County
District 4
Editor's Note: In addition to sending his letter to Warren Davis
with the Governor's Office of Citizen Services, Johnson also sent a
carbon copy to the governor, Governor's General Council Thomas.

Also look at frozen and canned
fruits and vegetables. They
often cost less than fresh and
may be more nutritious.
Compare unit prices, most
often found on a small tag on
the shelf under the item. Com-
pare the cost of different-sized
containers and different brands.
Read food labels. Consult
the "% Daily Value" to find out
if a serving of food is high (20
percent or more) or low (5 per-
cent or less) in a nutrient.
Choose foods with lower per-
centages of saturated fat and
sodium.
Choose whole grains. They
keep you full longer. Look for
the word "whole" (such as
"whole wheat" or "whole grain
flour") in the first ingredient.
Other common whole grains
include brown rice and oatmeal.

Alafia River Rendezvous Is Open To Public Jan. 25-26


By JIM KELLY
Of The Herald-Advocate
The 42nd Annual Alafia
River Rendezvous will be open
to the public on Friday and
Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Admission is $10 for adults, $5
for children 4 to 16 and for sen-
ibrs 60 and over, and free for
children 3 and under. Parking is

light, go several blocks to
Azalea Ave. and drive south.
The event depicts frontier life
in America prior to the late
1840s, when the major fur trade
for beaver pelts ended because
of a shortage of beavers, and
women from England were
beginning to wear silk hats
instead of beaver hats.
The 300-acre site at
Homeland has food vendors, a
water and sanitation system,

By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Prayer may not be a problem,
but a resolution prescribing
how it should be done created a
controversy recently.
At the Hardee County Com-
Iission meeting on Jan. 17, the
second item for discussion was
a five-page resolution "codify-
ing" the commission policy for
invocations before its meetings.
With the best of intentions,
the resolution opens prayer be-
fore the commission meetings
to clergy of all faiths and desig-
nates how they will be chosen
on a rotating basis.
Commission Chairperson
Sue Iirge had initiated the res-
olution and requested the com-
mission to approve it for her
signature. She said letters
would go out to all the churches
to invite participation. She said
Rev. Dewayne Wyatt had of-
fered the prayer for years. He
has certainly been committed
and is certainly appreciated, she
said.
Commissioner Rick Knight
said the resolution didn't clarify
who would offer the invocation
if the scheduled member of the
clergy didn't come. The resolu-
tion provides that a substitute
not be a member of the com-
mission or the county manager.
After much discussion, the
county attorney will add a
'phrase to indicate, if needed, a
lay person from the audience
may come up to offer the invo-
cation.
Commissioner Grady John-
son objected to the length of the
resolution. "It's a big resolution
for something I've done all my
life. County attorney Ken Evers
explained that it was a pro-
active step to avoid challenges
which have occurred in sur-
rounding counties.
The first two pages of the res-
olution include notes from at
least 10 references to U.S.
Supreme Court decisions that it
is constitutionally permissible
for a public body to "Invoke
divine guidance," not as an
establishment of religion but
simply an acknowledgement of
beliefs widely held among the
people.
The commission can "main-


tain a tradition of solemnizing
its proceedings by allowing an
opening invocation before each
meeting, for the benefit and
blessing of the commission."
The resolution provides for a
"congregations list" of those
with an established presence in
the local community, compiling
the list from those listed in the
Yellow Pages of the phone book
and consultation with local
chambers of commerce. All
religious congregations are eli-
gible and those not otherwise
identified may request inclusion
by written request to Office
Manager Sandy Meeks.
While intending to be all-
inclusive, with equal opportuni-
ty, any church may choose
whether to respond to an invita-
tion to participate. If a question
arises about the authenticity of
a religious congregation, crite-
ria used by the Internal Rev-
enue Service would certify
those with such tax-exempt sta-
tus. Chaplains with law en-
forcement or fire-rescue would
also be welcome.
The variety of eligible invo-
cation speakers shall be sched-
uled on a first come-first served
basis. None shall offer an invo-
cation at consecutive meetings
or more than three commission
meetings in a calendar year,
unless there are no other volun-
teers.
In other action, the commis-
sion:
-agreed to waive the $15
per child fee for use of the base-
ball complex west of town.
-held discussion on three
items presented by Ken Wheel-
er, county engineer and director
of public works.
In the first, Wheeler obtained
approval for a resolution to
accept grants from the state
Department of Transportation
for resurfacing Center Hill
Road from SR 62 to CR 664.
The state grant will provide a
total of $705,413 from a combi-
nation of SCRAP (Small Coun-
ty Road Assistance Program)
and SCOP (Small County
Operations Prograri). SCOP
dollars will pay for the drainage
work and SCRAP will pay for
widening and resurfacing. It
will be 100 percent state fund-


ed.
The second matter was a non-
permtted driveway/culvert pipe
along Steve Roberts Special,
supposed constructed to remove
fill dirt from the property.
Wheeler said the culvert/drive-
way would not be strong
enough for heavy trucks. Dur-
ing eight to 10 conversations,
the owner had promised to re-
move it. A letter had been sent
to him on Dec. 20 advising the
county would remove it at the
owner's expense (estimated at
about $500 for flagmen, grader
and operator and dump truck
and driver) and there has been
no response. Evers said there
had to be 30 days' notice. The
commission authorized removal
on the 31st day, if the landown-
er had not taken care of the
problem.
The third matter was engi-
neering and surveying for Par-
nell and North Hammock road
construction projects. Wheeler
explained how the county had
bid and selected five pre-quali-
fied firms to do engineering on
county projects. They are nor-
mally used on a rotating basis.
One first has merged with
another and left the area. One
does not do road projects.
Kimley Horn is disqualified as
it has not completed engineer-
ing on two projects, which have
gone over bid specs. No addi-
tional projects will be assigned
until the first two are satisfacto-
rily completed.
That leaves two firms. AIM
Engineering is doing the Sweet-
water Road project. Wheeler
recommended Chastain-Skill-
man then be assigned the two
pending projects and the com-
mission agreed.
-approved printing of the
delinquent real estate taxes by
The Herald-Advocate at its full
printing of 4,250 copies to
ensure distribution throughout
the county rather than trying to
allot certain areas each week on
2,750 copies. Evers also said
since the local newspaper is a
sole source with general circu-
lation in the county, it would
not be necessary to advertise for
bids in the future.
-appointed Gordon Norris
as the commission's citizen rep-

Library Performance



Features Florida Lore


By JESSICA BREWER
FOR The Herald-Advocate
A folk musician will be per-
forming at the Hardee County
Public Library this coming
Monday.
Open to the public and free
of charge, Chris Kahl will be
singing and playing guitar for
an hour-long "Musical Journey
Through Florida," a concert
dedicated to the history and cul-
ture of the Sunshine State.
Kahl, 36, has performed
steadily since the late 1990s,
when he made his start playing
throughout Central Florida.
Upon graduating from Rollins
College, he began touring inter-
nationally.
It was in Europe that he
began writing songs about his
beloved home state.
After returning home to
Florida, he released his first
album, "Orange Blossom Mem-
ories." The 2006 album fea-
tured songs about Florida life
and history. His song "Floridian
Hotel" was honored as one of
the Top 10 New Florida Songs
of 2006.
Then in 2007, his songs
"Native Land" and the "Ballad
of Harry Morgan" both placed
in the Top 10.
His most recent Florida-
themed album, "Sunshine Kid,"
contained "Cedar Key," which
was a winner of the Will
McLean Florida Songwriting
Contest.
Kahl also works as an artist
in residence with Brevard
County Schools and travels as a
part of Florida's State Touring

Wauchula Changes Garbage Routes


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate
Garbage collection on the
south side of Wauchula will
change at the end of next week.
Effective Feb. 1, both the
north and south routes for
garbage collection will be on
Monday and Thursdays. This
will be a big change for those
people on the south side who
have long been used to Tuesday
and Friday pickups.
Since-the city acquired a new
garbage truck,, it will be able to
use two trucks. for the twi e-a-
week pickups instead of one
truck running four days a week.
This will allow them to be used
to keep to a Monday-and-
Thursday schedule throughout
the city.
Wednesday will be yard trash
day, with the city's claw truck
picking up the larger.bundles.
Six-day-a-week dumpster col-
lection will continue as usual.
Ray McClellan, superintend-
ent of public works, explained
the. change to the Wauchula
City Commission at its meeting
on Jan. 14.
` The change in garbage pick-
up will allow public works staff
to concentrate on certain proj-
ects at least two full days a
week. This has become espe-
cially important since the city
no longer has the use of prison
crews. Those contracts were
cancelled to take this expense
out of the very tight city budget.
At its Jan. 14 meeting, the
commission also heard a pres-
entation by Zolfo Springs
Mayor Juan Otero and Hardee
County Sheriff Arnold Lanier
on potential financial contribu-
tions to adding School
Resource Officers in the ele-
mentary schools of the county.
All the county schools have
tightened security rules and
everyone must check in at the
office before entering the cam-
pus. There are SROs in place
already, two at the high school
and one at the junior high, who
could also be available for any
problem at the adjacent Hilltop
Elementary.
In all three communities, law
enforcement has stepped up
presence at the schools, Zolfo
Springs Elementary, Wauchula
Elementary and Bowling Green
Elementary. That leaves North
Wauchula Elementary without-
frequent coverage, although
deputies try to be available, but
have to leave when they receive


other calls.
It is hoped that a federal ini-
tiative allotting millions to each
state will allow Florida to pass
that money on to local school
districts to add SRO personnel.
Lanier said any action would
have to be included in budget
considerations for the next fis-
cal year. The Sheriff's Office
pays 60 percent and the School
Board 40 percent of an SRO,
including in the budget the
expense of a vehicle.
In other action', the commis-
sion:
-presented the monthly curb
appeal award to Mosaic Fert-
ilizer, which. "renovated the old
Beeson home on West Main
Street for its offices and inain-
tains it beautifully in support of
local sports and community
activities," Said Mayor Keith
Nadaskay in presenting the
award.
-approved final reading of
ordinances changing the future
land use and zoning classifica-
tion for the Underwood Estate
off East Bay Street. All were on
a 6-0 vote, with Commissioner
Patti Detwiler on pre-approved
absence as she had been' at the
planning session on Jan. 7.
-held a pension board meet-
ing and heard a report on pen-
sion fund portfolios. Both the
police and general fund pen-
sions are in good, positive
financial status. In response to
the expect effect, of "baby
boomers," Finance Director
James Braddock said that issue
had already been included in
the actuarial report recently
received.
-approved on a 6-0 vote a
sign variance for Dollar Tree,
one of the businesses in the
Sweetbay plaza at the south end
of town. Approval was recom-
mended by the Planning &
Zoning Board, said Olivia Min-
shew, assistant city manager
and community development
coordinator.
-approved a resolution of
emiinent domain for the taking
of parcels needed for the feder-
ally required expansion at Wau-
chula Municipal Airport. Most
of the 106-foot parcels along
the eastern edge of the airport
property had been purchased
but the county had insisted on
eminent domain procedures for
the first five off Vandolah Road.
"It's time to get this done, it's
been two years," said Commis-
sioner Russell Smith. Con-

structing the eastern fence/-

ments and federal/state funding.
-approved high bid of
$27,000 for nine surplus vehi-
cles and bid of $500 for four
tires and rims no longer needed.
-approved contract with
new city attorney Tom Cloud.
Out-going attorney Cliff Ables
said he had transferred all
active files to Cloud'and the
transfer of legal duties shbttld
go smoothly. Ables was-thaftked
for his I I years of service to the
community.
-heard Commissioner Ken
Lambert ask about how long
RVs and other vehicles can
remain in front of people's
houses as he had had several
complaints. Minshew explained
that a trailer or boat can't be
parked in the front of houses,
but can be placed in side or
back lots as long as they are
currently tagged or registered
and in good repair. They can be
cited for nuisance vehicles if
they are in poor repair and not
.licensed or tagged. She and
staff will look into the com-
plaints.
-recessed and met as the
Community Redevelopment
Agency Board, renewing Keith
Nadaskay and John Freeman as
chairman and vice-chairman
respectively.
The commission had a
lengthy CRA workshop at its
Jan. 7 planning session,. At this
meeting, it confirmed a morato-
rium on accepting residential or
commercial grant applications
while it completed plans for a
block-by-block or neighbor-
hood-by-neighborhood rehabil-
itation project. Lambert said
there needed to be work with
civic groups and churches on
deciding which areas to help in
what order.
The board left' open the
$30,000 one-time incentive
development grant to help a
larger business to come to the
community. '
The board also heard updates
on the train depot, parking lots
and B.rownfield work being
done in the city and the Main
Street activities, the Historic
Ghost Tour and Main Street
2013 calendar, which is await-
ing word on when school
reopens in the fall as the Back
To School event is scheduled to
coincide with the weekend
before school starts.

percent of the cost to hire a
resource officer to randomly
work at the five elementary
schools in the county. He was
accompanied by Hardee Sheriff
Arnold Lanier. The city's cosi
would be about $6,500 annual-
ly.
The five schools would share
an officer. The sheriff said an
officer, a car and all equipment
needed is about $65,000 a year
Otero is going to contact other
cities in the county and report
back.
Currently there are twc
armed resource officers at
Hardee High School and two al
Hardee Junior High/Hilltop
Elementary.
Since the Dec. 14 shooting ai
Sandy Hook Elementary School
in Newtown, Ct., in which a
lone deranged young man killed
20 students and six adults
patrols have already increased
at Hardee Schools by the
Sheriff's Office and local police
departments, said Lanier.
The second reading was
approved of an ordinance tc

A Daily Thought
THURSDAY
But I had almost stopped
believing; I had almost lost
my faith, because I was jeal-
ous of proud people, I saw
wicked people doing well.
Psalm 73:2-3 (NCV)
FRIDAY
They are not suffering; they
are healthy and strong. They
don't have troubles like the
rest of us; they don't have
problems like other people.
Psalm 73:4-5 (NCV)
SATURDAY
These people are wicked,
always at ease, and getting
richer. So, why have I kept
my heart pure, why have I
kept my hands from doing
wrong? .1I have suffered all
day long; I have been pun-
ished every morning.
Psalm 73:12-14 (NCV)
SUNDAY
I tried'to understand all this,
but it was too hard for me to
see. "Until, I went to the
House of God. Then I under-
stood what will happen to
-them. You (God) put them in
danger; You cause them to
be destroyed.
Psalm 73:16-18 (NCV)
MONDAY
They are destroyed (eternal-
ly) in a moment; they are
swept away by terrors.
Psalm 73:19 (NCV)
TUESDAY
When my heart was sad and
I was angry, I was senseless
and stupid. ... But I am
always with You, You have
held my hand.
Psalm 73:22a,23 (NCV)
WEDNESDAY
You (God) guide me with
Your advice, and later You
will receive me in honor. ...
My body and mind may
become weak, but God is
my strength. He is mine for-
ever.

Mae Frank Himrod



Celebrates 100 Years!


Almost a hundred friends and
family members gathered at
Hardee Manor Saturday, Jan. 5,
to celebrate Mae Frank Marsh
-limrod's 100th birthday.
Attendees included two sis-
ters, Doris Gough Rhyan, 97,
and Naomi Pearson, 86; four
daughters, Margaret Mactavish,
Mary Howard Moore, Ann
Fowler and Ruth Moon; 17
grandchildren; and many great-
and great-great grands along
with nieces and nephews from
throughout the United States.
Sadly missing was brother
A.M., 90.
Mae Frank, the daughter of
Andrew and Addie Bell Walden
Marsh, moved from Alabama to
Wauchula around 1916 and has
lived here since. The family's
first home was located on Ninth
and Bay Street.
Her dad raised cucumbers,
tomatoes and other vegetables
for King Southerland on land
where the middle school now
stands. She began first grade in
the old Wauchula Grammar
School with Dot Chambliss as
her teacher. In 1921, the family
moved to Oak Grove. All eight
Marsh children attended school
through eighth grade. She has
always been an avid reader and
remembers that her teacher,
Lemmie Edwards Norris,
would let her take books home
to read.
After doing morning chores,
such as making biscuits in a
wood-burning stove, milking,
cows, chopping wood and help-
ing younger siblings get
dressed, the children walked a
mile to school carrying their


lunches in a syrup bucket.
However, life was not all
work and no play.
The large loft in the barn next
to the house provided a great
place for the children to get
away: Games included walking
the barrel, walking the board
fence, and seesawing on the
barn roof. With Troublesome
Creek just down the road,
swimming after lunch so Papa
could sleep was a daily activity.
They learned to swim by tying
syrup buckets together for
floaters.
As teenagers, "pound parties"
were all the rage. Most always
20 or so young people from the
community would bring a
pound of makings for ice cream
and gather on the back porch to
churn and socialize with one
another.
After graduating from eighth
grade, Mae Frank attended
Wauchula High School where
she met Jack Himrod, the love
of her life. They married when
she was 16; a marriage that last-
ed 54 years until Jack's passing
in 1985. Together they raised
five children: four daughters
listed above and son John, now
deceased all graduating from
Hardee High School in the
1950s.
For many years, she has been
involved in church, school and
community activities. She
began teaching Sunday School
at Oak Grove Baptist Church at
age 16 and continued teaching
until age 97 at Faith Presbyter-
ian in Wauchula, where she is
currently a member.
She and Jack were avid sup-


porters of all Wildcat activities.
Mae Frank was a frequent vol-
unteer in the schools. She also
served as president of Wauchula
Garden Club for eight years.
The birthday celebration in-
cluded eight distinct birthday
cakes, prepared by expert fami-
ly bakers. Guests were hard-
pressed to choose a favorite and
many tasted more than one!
It also included a reverse in
tradition. Over the years. Mae
Frank included a "Granny dol-
lar" in each birthday card sent
to her grandchildren. On this
day, the 17 grandchildren in
attendance each returned a
Granny dollar in her birthday
card.
Family members, some not
having seen each other for
decades, renewed acquaintanc-
es and enjoyed meeting the
youngest additions to the fami-
ly. Old friends enjoyed time
together. Birthday congratula-
tions from President Barack
Obama topped off the celebra-
tion.
A life lived over 100 years
brings with it many memories.
Mae Frank shared memories
including traveling by horse 'n
buggy with her grandfather
early in the 20th century; work-
ing on the farm and helping
care for her younger siblings.
Mae Frank also emphasized,
that she has always been a life-
long learner.
The secret to her long life?
"Hard work, eating right, and
staying active," says Mae
Frank.

Togetherness

I can't remember the time
But I do know it was long ago.
"I had planted a seed and
today still continues to grow!"
Well, we've been together now
for almost six years.
"She's still by my side and
shares laughing tears!"
I call her "my moo moo bear"
and I'm her "monkey head flea."
Guess we'll remain this way
S' For eternity.
As a seed withers with time
it too will pass away.
But, so far I've had a grand time;
my moo moo bear and
her monkey head flea.

This week in history, as
researched from the archival
pages of The Florida Ad-
vocate, the Hardee County
Herald and The Herald-Ad-
vocate ...,
75 YEARS AGO
A big-time wrestling game
will make an appearance in
Wauchula next Friday night
after an absence of several
years. Two introductory match-
es are scheduled for an arena to
be erected at the Wauchula ball
park, the first will begin at 8:30
o'clock.

Twenty youngsters who
offered their services to the
Wauchula High School's
Wildcat football team last sea-
son will soon be sporting new
sweaters and letters for their
activities on the gridiron in
1937.

Activities at the local market
are somewhat slow due to unfa-
vorable weather, but it is the
hope of market officials that the
volume of strawberries will
increase shortly with a little
warm, drier weather.


Word has been received here
that the Rev. Otis Garland, of
the First Baptist Church, of
Douglasville. Ga., has accepted
a call as pastor of the Wauchula
Baptist Church. It is understood
that Rev. Garland will arrive in
this city about the middle of
February.

50 YEARS AGO
The University of Miami
"Band of the Hour" will present
a concert in the City Hall
Auditorium in Wauchula Sun-
day, Feb. 3, at 2:30 p.m.

Hardee's Wildcat cagers, vic-
torious in their last six games,
will take to the road this week-
end as they meet arch-rival
Bartow in Bartow tonight and
then return a game with the
SebriAg Blue Streaks in Sebring
tomorrow night. Bartow is both
a conference and district game
while Sebring counts toward
the district title.

of George Blanco of Tampa.

A new course contrasting the
Communist and American sys-
tems of government will begin
at the two high schools in the
county Jan. 29. The course,
'Americanism versus Commu-
nism." is required of all seniors
by state law. It will be offered
now to juniors at Hardee High
School and to seniors at Lillian
R. Brown High School. Ar-
rangements will be made later
this year for HHS seniors to
take it.

25 YEARS AGO
With 16 out of 20 businesses
reporting their approximate
sales of lottery tickets for the
first week, almost $100,000.
was spent in Hardee County
during that time for tickets.

The U.S. Department of
Agriculture has increased the
forecast for Florida orange pro-'
duction in the 1987-88 season
by nearly four percent, and
increased the grapefruit forecast
by almost two percent.

The Hardee Wildcats girls
basketball team won its fifth
game in six tries Friday night
with a 51-40 victory over the
Palmetto Tigers at the Hardee
gymnasium.

A new pageant has been


scheduled for the Hardee
County Fair this year. The
Junior Miss Pageant will be
held Friday, March 18. at 7 p.m.
The pageant is limited to
eighth-grade girls only.

10 YEARS AGO
The S13.5 million. 4.5-mile
four-laning of U.S. 17 in
Wauchula will begin in
February.

The Hardee boys soccer team
continued its winning ways last
week, pocketing a pair of victo-
ries. One was another district
win, putting Hardee tied for
second place. The 3-1 victory at
Sarasota Booker leaves just two
district games on the schedule.

The 4th District Court of
Appeal in West Palm Beach on
Jan. 15 ruled that the 1,900-foot
canker law is constitutional and
lifted the current injunction,
which has delayed the citrus
canker eradication program and
allowed canker to spread
throughout the state.

Final plans for County
Courthouse renovations and
preliminary plans for the
adjoining Annex I show
progress. Nearly a year in the
works, renovations at the main
courthouse are almost finished.

Now is the time to buy!


Greetings from Fort Green!
Little Miss Addie Sonier cel-
ebrated her first birthday with a
super party at her grandparents'
home, Connie and Danny
Coker. Beside Addie, other
cousins were there to help cele-
brate: Tanner and Emmalyn
Chester and Trenton Duke.
Great-grandparents Newt and
Christine Murdock were down
from Lakeland for the celebra-
tion and great-grandmother
Joyce Coker from Fort Green.
Other little ones enjoying the
festivities were Liam Nadasky,
Alene Rogers, Jada Willis and
Payton Whitehurst from Se-
bring.
Aunt Amber Coker came up
from Miami, and her gift was a
beautiful handmade quilt with a
pillow and a pillowcase. Amber
said it took a year to make, but
I believe that was in jest!
It was a festive occasion with
some very cute decorations and
delicious refreshments. There
were guests of mixed ages, and
all the children enjoyed the
bounce house and slide. Addie
fell in love with a little pink-
and-white push toy that she
could also ride and walked
behind it until her little legs and
feet were tired! She was a typ-
ical little one digging into her
cake and enjoying the icing!
Betty Waters is down in her
back and will have surgery.
Betty Walker has pneumonia in
one lung, and praying the other
lung remains well. Denise
Heine is sick. Geneva Otero had&
surgery several weeks ago and
is still having complications
and not feeling well. Doyle
Bryan is out of the hospital.and
gaining a little weight. Doris
Thornton is having trouble with
-her eye.
Lory Durrance is home and
doing much better. Charlton


Sadler is recovering very well
from his recent surgery.
Brother A.O. Hendry is in the
hospital and hoping to be
released shortly. George Wilson
is feeling better after getting
two stents recently. He had
some that were clogged and
needing help! Gary Oden had to
go for a test and Alice Faye
Moye had a procedure last
week but all was well. Please
pray for all of these and others
you might know.
Our sincere sympathy is
extended to the family of Gene
Beck. Quite often on Sunday.
nights we would see Gene when.
he and others from New Hope
would come to Wendy's. I;
worked for Lorne Yetter, who
was supervisor of elections
when the office was in the base-
ment of the old courthouse.
Lorne was Gene's uncle, and I:
believe Lorne's daddy was
chief of police at one time.
They are an old family and I
don't believe there are many.
left to continue the line.
Charles and Lynda Abbott
had a good trip to Blairsville,
Ga., but are back home for a
short time. Charles says he
would move there but you can't
get Lynda away from her grand-
kids! I think this is pretty typi-
cal of all 'grandmothers!
Don't forget the shoe-cutting
party this Saturday at Heritage
Park. They will be making
shoes from jeans for a mission
project in Africa. Also, don't
forget the yard sale at Fort
Green Baptist Church Feb. 1
and 2. The proceeds will bene-
fit the mission trip that five peo-
ple, Pam and Faye Davis,
Connie Abbott and Brother
Steve and Tara McGaughey, are
participating in this summer;
.Please pray for one another
and our nation.

January 24, 2013, The Herald-Advocate 9B


The biggest news at hand is the boys soccer team, which drew
a bye in Tuesday's opening rounds and hosts the second of a pair
of semi-final games in the district soccer finals. Hardee is hosting
the playoffs and will play tonight against the winner of the
DeSoto/Avon Park clash on Tuesday night. If Hardee wins tonight,
the boys will be in the regional playoffs, either as district champi-
on or district runnerup.
Girls soccer had its playoffs last week, and lost a heart-rending
2-1 game in the opening round. With a strong JV in its first season,
'the girls team looks to be strong in years. to come.

Girls basketball held its Senior night on Friday, honoring Robin
Tanksley, Adna Metayer and Stephanie Perez. The girls finish up
the regular season this week and play in districts at Lake Wales Jan.
28-Feb. 1.
Boys basketball finishes up next week and heads into district
competition the following week.

Girls weightlifting sends only Merislene Cimeus to the region-


al competition in Port Charlotte on Friday. Coach John Sharp has a
young team and expects continued improvement for next season.

It's time to head to spring sports. Youth baseball and softball
have had their signups and will start their seasons in about a month.
When schedules are available, more information will be provided.
There will be a spring youth flag football league. Coordinator
Donna Parks said when Hardee teams went to playoffs last season,
she learned most of the other teams in this division have spring flag
football as an opportunity for conditioning, learning basic skills
and basic plays, helping players to have some continuity rather
than play just in the fall and forget what they learned by the next
fall.

On the high school level, girls softball begins with a pre-season
tournament at DeSoto next Tuesday and Thursday, playing Port
Charlotte on Tuesday and the home team DeSoto next Thursday.
Boys baseball will have a preseason tourney at Fort Meade Feb.
8-9 and another at Lake Wales the following week.
The tennis teams open the first week of February as well, play-
ing Frostproof on Feb. 5 and Avon Park on Feb. 7.
Track teams start Feb. 11-12 with a dual meet, at DeSoto one
day and Hardee the next.
Only boys weightlifting doesn't have a schedule or team yet,
waiting for some of the athletes to complete winter sports.

In football, Hardee had a visit last week from University of
Florida head coach Will Muschamp to see Coach Buddy Martin
and upcoming senior Keyon Brown. UF is among his choices, as
he has gotten a lot of national attention since his sophomore season
when he attended a national combine/qualifier/training session.

There's an adult flag football team playing now, with a a cham-
pionship game Jan. 19 at Avon Park, and possibly on to Tampa this,
weekend for a "Let It Fly" tournament. For information on the
team and how to sponsor it, call Jermain King at cell phone 245-
1077.
Information from community and school athletic events is always.
welcome. Please call me at 773-3255, or e-mail me at the new
address, sports@theheraldadvocate'.com with news for this bi-
weekly column. Please note that the deadline Jfor sports news for
weekend events is 5 p.m. Thursday. News for events which happen
after that are due by noon Mondays in order to have a chance to
get in that week's paper and is always dependent on space avail-
ability.





Jokes & Philosophies

Ph. (863) 453-3589

Never let your vanity overemphasize your importance.

I suppose you know that all men were created equal. That was
until one of them got a dollar in his pocket.

Love letters are nice, but sometimes it takes a gentle touch of
poetry to settle the soul.

The greatness of a man is not found in the strength of his arm,
but in the wisdom of his mind, dictated by the compassion of his
heart.

The first difference of opinion probably started in prehistoric
times, when an idiot did not know what he was talking about.

Should you be filled with joy, then go out into a world casting
your joy into the pathway of friend and foe alike. You might as well
because you are not gonna be able to keep it anyway.

I'm from the old school. Well, I was old when I left it.

In America if you work you are rewarded, but if you don't
work, you are supported.

My sweetheart sugar possum has a weight problem. She can't
wait to eat.

Life's Outtakes



All God's Children


By DARIS HOWARD
Special To The Herald-Advocate
I was with the youngest children at
church last Sunday when something
happened that made me think about
Civil Rights Day and the challenges this
country has faced.
One of the teachers was trying to help
the children understand that God loves
everyone no matter who they are, and
that we should be kind to everybody
even if they are different from us. She
showed a picture of a little Downs
Syndrome girl and aske ., children if
they could see any differences between
her and themselves.
One little girl raised her hand. "Yes,"
she said. "She's smiling."
"Yes, she is smiling," the teacher
replied. "But can you see anything else
that makes her different from you?"
The children looked and looked and
strained to see a difference. Finally,
another little girl raised'her hand. When
the teacher called on her, she said,
"She's dressed in summer clothes
instead of heavy winter clothes." No
matter how long the teacher asked them
about difference, the children could not'
see anything of importance.
I smiled as I thought of an experience
with my own little daughter, Elliana.
When she was 5 years old, she was
Invited over to-play at the home of a
family that was new to the area. The
mother, father and their four biological
children were all Caucasian, blue-eyed,
and very blond. They also had a sweet
little African-American daughter that
they had adopted.
My wife, Donna, had grown up in
Los Angeles, and had lots of friends
from other races and nationalities. I
lived in New York for a time and grew
to love people from almost every reli-
gion and region of the world. But our
children had not had any such opportu-
nities.
Donna was concerned that our daugh-
ter might be surprised at the mix in the
family, and innocently say something
shi- shouldiiot. So sife simply told her
that one child in the family was adopt-

"What does adoptedd mean?" Elliana
asked.
"Well, when a child is adopted into a
family, they are not born to the mother
of that family, but to another mother,"
Donna replied. "But if that child's
mother can't take care of them, the
other family takes the child into their
home and loves them as their own."
This was not really a new concept to
Elliana, as we had been foster parents
before, so she smiled and said, "That is
so nice."
Elliana went over there and played
most of the day. There were four girls
and one boy in the family. The girls
played dolls with Elliana and did lots of
girl things, but when they all played
soccer in the back yard, the little boy
joined them. They had lunch, and cake
for dessert, and all-sorts of good things.
When Elliana arrived home, we asked
her how it went. "It was the most fun
ever," she said. "They have real pretty
dolls, and we; played soccer in their
great big yard."
Then Elliana stopped and looked at
her mother. "Mama, which one in their
family was adopted? "
"Well, did you notice that one child
was a bit different from the others"
Donna asked.
Elliana thought for a moment, and
then she smiled. "Oh, yes, there was
one that was different."
"And what was the difference?"
Donna asked.
Donna hoped to make this a teaching
moment, sharing with our daughter
about how wonderfully diverse people
are. But instead, we were the ones who
learned. We learned that children aren't
born with notions of differences; it is
something we build in ourselves as we '
grow older.
For, in answer to the question, Elliana
just laughed and said, "It's obvious,
Mama. One was a boy."

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER'

Michael A. Guido
Meter. Georgia


When the West was wild, a
rancher went to town for supplies.
He hitched his team, and went into
the general store to shop.
Suddenly a gunslinger engaged
a stranger in a gun fight, and the
shots caused the horses to bolt in
terror.
Instantly the farmer ran for his
team. He stopped his horses, but
was trampled under their feet.
"Was your wagon worth it?"
asked the doctor.
"Yes." said the dying man. "My
children were in it."
Should you ask God if it was
worth it to send His Son to die for
our sins. I know He'd say, "Itwas!"
And the Bible says, "There is joy
in the presence of the angels of
God over one sinner that repents."

They've Made Too Many


New Hunting Laws!


By PAGE HARBARUGH
Special To The Herald-Advocate
Q: What is your full name?
A: Wendell Herbert Stewart.
Q: When is your birthday and
where were you born?
A: July 20, 1950, in Hot Springs, Ark.
Q: How much has technology
advanced since you were a kid?
A: A lot! Radios turned into TVs, and
black-and-white changed to color.
Rotary phones changed to push button,
and now to fancy touch screen phones
that'know more than my computer. It's
sort of crazy when you think about it
from my perspective. I wouldn't have
dreamed of any of these things in a mil-
lion years, but I guess I'm glad I got the
chance to watch it all happen.
Q: Do kids today act the same as
kids when you were younger?
A: Not at all.
Q: How do kids today act different-
ly?
A: Well, when I was a kid I had to
work for everything I wanted, whether
it be food or clothes. We didn't get stuff
handed to us like kids do today.
Nowadays kids have to go around in the
best clothes with the best phones, and if
they don't have the nicest things,
they're automatically not cool enough
for the other kids. When I was a teenag-
er, I was lucky enough to have a pair of
shoes!
Q: Do you think life is easier now
or when you were a kid?
A: Life is a whole lot easier now.
Kids are able to get the education they
need instead of having to work to help
support their family. And with the way
technology has advanced, we have
machines to do all the work for us.
Q: Has the economy improved?
A: Yes. Even though it has its down-
falls every now and then, it's still better
than when I was young. You're able to
make more money, and that makes the
way of living easier, even though things
cost a lot more.
Q: What was it like for you as a kid


growing up?
A: We didn't have cars or TVs in my
family. If we had to go somewhere, we
would walk if it was important enough,
no matter how far. We went to school
whenever we could, but I remember I
didn't go much because ever since I
was 5, I had started finding ways to
make money to help support my family.
I didn't have anything close to what
kids have today or their privileges. They
should learn to appreciate what they
have more.
Q: What are some things you've
done in
your life
that you I g it '
are proud '
of?r
A: I've been working in the mines for
34 years, last beingat Mosaic. Sadly, I
retired this year. I've been married to
my wife, Donna Stewart, for a good 35
years and had two beautiful children
and 11 amazing grandchildren.
Q: Would you have preferred to of
been born with the technology of
today?
A: No. Even though times were hard,
it was so much simpler. Back then fami-
lies were closer and the economy was
slower-paced. We weren't worrying-
about the next big, thing. We were just
sort of taking it easy for a while, letting
things end up how they end up! These
days families are too busy worrying
about money. They don't take the time
to just sit back and,'enjoy the simpler
things in life.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: I'm old, so I like old things. I love
cruising around in old cars down the
highway. It's like driving away your
problems. And I feel like one of those
hipsters when I drive on my Harley all
leathered up. I used to love hunting, but
they've made so many laws and
changes, it's just to6 confusing for me.

Soccer Boys Finish Season


By JOAN SEAMAN
Of The Herald-Advocate-
High-flying Kathleen spoiled
the Hardee varsity soccer boys
home finale.
The junior varsity finished up
their first season with a win
over Kathleen, showing contin-
ued improvement.
This week, Hardee has been
hosting the Class 2A, District
10 soccer tournament but had a
bye until today (Thursday).
Tuesday's games featured
fourth-seeded Mulberry facing
fifth-seeded Lake Placid at 6
p.m., and third-seeded DeSoto
going at it with sixth-seeded
Avon Park at 8.
In today's games, top-seed
Frostproof will challenge the
winner of the Mulberry-Lake
Placid game in a 6 p.m.
matchup, while second-seeded
Hardee will take on the winner
of the DeSoto/Avon Park
matchup at 8. Tonight's winners
clash tomorrow in the district
championship game at 7 p.m.
Last week's only .games were
on Wednesday, a visit from
Lakeland Kathleen for Hardee's
Senior Night, honoring 11 sen-
iors. Playing in their last regular
season game were: Jesus Zuni-
ga, Martin Lucatero, Octavio
Alvarez, Luis Luna, Carlos
Deloera, Armando Alvarez,
Miguel Garcia, Campbel Aubry,
Oscar Palaci6s, Mark Gomez
and Alexis Palacios. Other var-
sity players are juniors Ruben
Velasquez, .Luis Alonzo and
Gustavo. Toledo and sophs
Gilberto Cardoza, Manuel Pa-


lacios and Alexis Arenas.
"Hardee lost to Kathleen 3-1,
but not without a lot of excite-
ment. Hardee controlled the
ball throughout, and while tak-
ing 29 shots on goal, only one
was able to find its way home,"
said Head Coach Dennis Aubry.
Kathleen took only 10 shots
on goal, but made three of them
stand up. For Hardee, Garcia
scored at the end of the third
period, with 17:22 left. "The
match was a good tune-up for
next week when the district
tournament starts. Hardee.
played very strong and with
much confidence," said Aubry,
whose team finished 12-6-1
overall and 6-3-1 in the district.
The team tied and won over
DeSoto, beat Avon Park and
Lake Placid twice each, split
with Mulberry and loss twice to
top-seed Frostproof.
The junior Wildcats finished
at 2-11-2 and "played probably
their best played game of the
season. Hardee improved their
passing'and settling game and
moved the ball better as a
team," said Aubry.
The lone goal was by Oscar
Duarte in the second period.
Other JV players are Ezequiel
Perez, Filistin Luis Michael,
Frederik Torres, Rolando Ale-
man, Kenneth Vargas, Rodrigo
Rodriguez, Gabriel Garcia,
E4uardo Lopez, Ricardo De-
Santiago, Francisco Salgado,
Alexis Chavez, Gustavo Sali-
zar, Mateo Gomez, Ben
Tamayo, Jose Padilla and
Fabian Perada.

CHURCH NEWS
By Shirley Glessner


On Jan. 13, Pastor Bob
Winne read a true story about a
boy who had been born out of
wedlock and did not know who
his father was, how it affected
the boy's life as everyone
would ask, "Who's your
father?" He did not know and
would become embarrassed.
One Sunday the minister went
to the door before the boy had a
chance to leave and asked him
why he left so quickly. On
hearing the boy was afraid of
being questioned about this
father, the minister told him that
he was a child of God. The boy
proudly continued to use that
response throughout his life.
The choir under the direction
of Beth Frisbie sang "Holy,
Holy, Holy" accompanied by
Linda Gray on piano.
The service closed with
prayer and the singing of "God
Be with You Till We Meet
Again."


KOFFEE KLATCH
Steve Gray led the prayer
Jan. 16. Dora Morgan led the
U.S. Pledge .and I .led the
Canadian Pledge. The 50/50
winners were Jim and Judy
Fisher, Lot 52, Lot 492 and
Frankie Walters.
There will be a Fun Day on
Feb. 20 starting at 9 a.m. There
will be no Koffee Klatch that
day. Watch the bulletin boards
for more details. Our Annual
.Auction will be Saturday,
March 2. Ajar is being passed
around at Koffee Klatch every
Wednesday for people to put
money in and this jar with the
money will .be auctioned off
March 2. .
CRAFTS
Our annual Ladies Only


Dessert & Fashion Show will
be Monday, Feb. 4, starting at 1

other parks. Also, the Craft
Club will be having Studs for
Your Duds on Friday, Feb. 15,

that Art and Diane Smith will

; "Video Games" at Hardee Senior High


, _by Doyle Collum & Jessica Brewer


Pac-Man, Mario, Sonic, Master
Chief: all-star characters whose
influence extends beyond their virtual
worlds. And due to -the addition of
a Video Game Foundations class
at Hardee Senior High, the next
world-renowned video game icon
might be created by a HSHS student.
The course, offered as part of
a new STEM initiative, hopes
to lead some of its students to a
future career in video game design.
"STEM stands for Science,
Technology, Engineering, and Math,"
Mrs. Ware said. "This class meets all
of those standards and the students
will be using all of those skills while
they are building their games."
Many of the students enjoy how
the class offers a creative outlet as
well as the opportunity to turn their
thoughts into virtual reality. "I'm
looking forward to creating a game,"
junior Carlos Sanchez said. "I'll get to
be like 'Yeah! That's my creation!'"
For many students who have a
spent their childhood gaming, the
class acts as the beginning step toward
pursuing a career in a field they
once considered to be an impossible
dream. "I've been interested in
having a career in video game design
since I got my first console when
I was about 7," sophomore Logan
Boyd said. "The class is giving
me the background to be able to
interact with and create the games."


The class teaches several aspects
of video gaming. "Not only are
the students learning about the
history of gaming, they are also
learning the background of making
games and all of the information
that they need in order to make
a completed project," Ware said.
While the courses' primary focus is
game development, it also enhances
students' knowledge in other areas that
will help them in the business world.
"We have already been certified
in PowerPoint," Boyd said. "When
we first started this class I hardly
knew anything about PowerPoint,
and now I know almost everything
about it. Using PowerPoint, we
will present our ideas to people.
We need to be able to sell our
ideas after coming up with them."
So far students have created little
projects such as jeopardy boards,
mouse mazes, and crossword puzzles.
-In the coming months, students will
be learning to use a few different
programs, such as The Games
Factory 2 and Pivot, which will
get them more involved in creating
games. Then, as a concluding
activity for the course, groups, of
four to five students will discuss
ideas and make a completed game.
Next year HSHS will be offering
Game Simulation Design as a
follow up course to further student
experience with video gaming.


Students in the Game and Simulation Foundations course learn about the his-
tory of video games and the many aspects of making a game. Pictured here,
Carlos Sanchez uses Microsoft Office 2010 Power Point to complete an assign-
ment that involved the development of a puzzle with a question and answer sheet.


"Right now, this is just the beginning of
learning about video games," Ware said.
"It's the foundation knowledge: learning
genres, the different artistic colors, how
to develop their characters, how their
characters move through their programs,
how to develop a setting and thinking of
what audience they wish to appeal to.
The design class will involve bringing it
all together to form a completed project."


With the final exam being a completed
game, the course offers students a
taste of what having a career in video
game development entails: creating a
product and working to complete it.
With the true-to-life experience the
course offers, the staff of HSHS hopes
more students interested in the field will
sign up for this elective in the future.


Attention HHS Parents

Over the next few months, Hardee Senior High will be participating in a process for renewing our school's accreditation. Maintaining
our accreditation is important, as it ensures our graduates remain competitive at the post secondary level including college and tech-
nical school admissions.
Parents are asked to provide feedback by completing a brief, online survey. They may go to the school's webpage at:
http://www.hardee.kl2.fl.us/hhs/ to access this survey at any time. The deadline to complete the survey is'Friday, January 25th.


HI ]N[KUR


Various clubs and organizations take on the responsibility of running ath-
letic concession stands for HSHS, .and thus benefit from the proceeds.
Pictured here, working a basketball concession stand with sponsor, Filom-
ena Atchley (back), are Key Club members (L to R) Brandon Vargas, Jona-
than Maldonado, Briana Arce, Blake Holton, Ana Lazo, and Joseph Juarez.


The school's media center is open during lunches to provide students com-
puter access for various class projects as well as a quiet place to study. Pic-
tured above, David Velazquez and Miguel Aguirre take advantage of the open
library during their lunch period to review for an upcoming mid-term exam.


CF


Recently, social studies teachers Brian Kennedy and Daniel Estrada collabo-
rated on an activity that brought the market place to life and taught students
how economics works in the stock market. In the simulation, students took on
"buyer" or "seller" roles to actively engage with other students in buying or sell-
ing boxes of computer chips at prices indicated on cards they received for each
round of play. Pictured here, Cody Dayfert (left) and Joseph Edgley (right) "seal
their deal" with a handshake.
