In the first crash, young Je nese N. Manzanita Reyna of Wauchula was driving her 2008 Nissan Titan on Florida Avenue about a quarter-mile north of State Road 64 around 2:30 a.m. She was traveling south on the road when she approached a lefthand curve and began to travel off the pavement and onto the grass. The Florida Highway Patrol report says Reyna then at tempted to get back onto the roadway and steer left, causing her to overcorrect and begin to rotate in a counter-clockwise direction. The Nissan then overturned while crossing both lanes and went into the eastern grass shoul der, the FHP said. There, Reynas car struck a wooden power pole and Reyna, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected from the vehicle. The car came to a final rest on its roof, facing in a northerly direction. It became engulfed in flames, said the report. Reyna died at the scene at 2:39 a.m. She was the first fatality to occur on Hardee County roadways for 2014. Her funeral service was Tuesday at St. Michael Catholic Church. Milton Wedemeier, also of Wauchula, was driving a 2003 Honda VTX 1800 on New Years Day around 1:25 p.m. on Cracker Lane when the second fatal accident occurred. The motorcycle was going north on Cracker Lane just out side the Wauchula city limits when, for an unknown reason, it overturned on its left side caus ing Wedemeier to be ejected, the FHP reported. The motorcycle continued to travel north for about 50 feet See FATALITIES2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate This years flu may be worse than usual, and, it is at its peak right now. A 28-year-old local woman who had the flu died Monday. Her death cannot be confirmed as coming from the flu, how ever, as there were several other factors involved, the Hardee County Health Department said. Joann DiLealla, nursing director at the Health Depart-ment, did confirm that the woman had not had a flu shot. There is a huge increase in the number of people being treated for the flu, reports say. In December, Florida Hospital sent 42 samples of people with influenza-like illnesses (ILI) tested for the H1N1, or swine flu, under the statewide epidemiology gateway. Of these, four came back positive, meaning only about 10 percent of suspected flu cases came See SWINE FLU2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate This is the second of two parts on what the new year will bring. This week, the municipalities: Wauchula Wauchula had a busy 201213 in many areas, from main taining files to maintaining the law enforcement presence on the 20 miles of the city streets, its residences and businesses. Data services are becoming increasingly important and the city is in the process of converting its billing system to allow email notices and payment options for those who want it that way. The downtown directory was updated by the Community Redevelopment/Main Street Wauchula office. It will prove to be another hectic time for the city in 201314 with a variety of projects. One is purchase of vehicles and equipment, including: officer See 20142A By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate Plans to expand the Hardee County Commerce Park took a setback Thursday when the Planning & Zoning Board voted to deny the requested zoning change. The staff report submitted with the application recom mended the board approve the request. Now it will be up to the County Commission, which will hear the issue at its next scheduled meeting on Jan. 23 and ultimately decide whether plans to expand the park can proceed. The Industrial Development Authority submitted the request to change the 105 acres imme diately south of the existing park from Farm Residential and Multiple Family Residential to Commercial/Industrial Business Center (C/IBC). The IDA purchased the prop erty in 2008 from Dewey and Judy Terrell for $1.5 million. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said the current park is zoned as C/IBC and only has two available lots left to locate businesses looking to start or re locate operations in Hardee Country. County Planner Kevin Denny, who wrote the staff report, said the C/IBC zoning change would allow for most uses, such as manufacturing, to locate in the park without any additional approval. Something having a signifi cant impact to the area, such as a chemical manufacturing plant or other potential hazardous business, however, would have to go through additional permit ting and obtain a major special exception, he said. Planning & Zoning Board members sided with neighbor ing residents who came to the meeting and expressed concerns over increased traffic and water/sewer issues if lines were extended through the park and tied into the countys Wauchula Hills utility lines. The board voted 4-0 to deny the request, with Don Chancey, Ralph Arce, Gordon Norris and Ann Wilson voting against the proposal. Roger Conley abstained from voting because of a potential conflict of interest due to his company caretaking the orange grove on the property. Lambert said he will discuss the issue with the IDA board at its meeting on Tuesday morn ing. See P&Z NIXES2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Tuesday may have been one of the coldest days Hardee County has seen in quite a while. It wasnt just the low temperature, there have been others lower. And, it wasnt just the lack of sun. Its been overcast lots of times. It was the cold and length of it, combined with that elusive wind chill factor. According to the Fawn Weather Site at the Range Cattle Station in Ona, the low Tuesday was 36 degrees and the high was 51. But, a wind chill advisory issued through the Hardee County Emergency Manage-ment office late Tuesday afternoon to Wednesday at 7 a.m. noted that a 35 degree temperature with 15 mile-per-hour winds really amounts to 25 degrees. And it drops a degree or more for each additional five-mile-per hour wind gust. Hardee County joined the rest of the nation in suffering the effects of the polar vortex, a cy clone of high winds usually at the North Pole, which hopped on the jet stream and traveled south through much of the United States, including the deep South where temperatures were in the teens. All 50 states dropped below 30 degrees at some time Tuesday, including Hawaii, where it was 18 degrees at the top of the dormant Mauna Kea volcano. In Hardee County, a freeze warning issued late Monday and early Tuesday was withdrawn later Tuesday as temper See COLD2A

Donell Mathews of Melbourne remembers that around 1975 t here were five Hardee County men who were U.S. Air Force colonels himself, Scott Smith, Harry Delaney, Bill Moran and Louis Makowski. Daryl Hall of Wauchula recently visited the animal refuge at Pioneer Park and noticed buzzards were aggravating the bear. There were about 20 buzzards in the pen and several on occasion were pecking at the bear. I went by the next day and there were about 15 buzzards in the pen, and one or two buzzards periodically would peck at the bear. Hall believes a net should be stretched above the bears pen to keep the buzzards out. This sounds like a good idea. The per capita consumption of blueberries in the U.S. has gone from 15.5 ounces in 1995 to 39.5 ounces in 2011, said Kathy Blake, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council in Folson, Calif. Blueberries are considered a super-healthy food. The Florida blueberry season runs from April through May and acreage and production in the Sunshine State continues to grow, reported Kevin Boufard of the Lakeland Ledger last year. Florida blue berry acreage has grown from 1,200 acres in 1992 to 4,500 in 2012. Florida production has grown to 15 to 21 million pounds annually, with farm prices ranging from $3 to $6 a pound, and the overall crop value reaching over $60 million. There are several blueberry growers in Hardee and Polk counties. Just about everybody enjoys fresh blueberries and blueberry muffins. Blueberries are often used in pancakes, fruit salads, pies, cobblers, and other foods. The 43rd annual Alafia River Rendezvous in Homeland north of Fort Meade will be held Jan. 18 25. The campers depict life in the early 1800s. Located just west of U.S. 17, the event is generally open to the public the last two days for an admission price. Bruce Perrine announced a re-union of the 1990s Hardee School Board was to be held Wednesday noon, Jan. 8, at the Java Cafe. The other board members at the time were Wayne Godwin of Lake Placid, Jerold Knight of Miami, Jim Stallings and Donnie Autry. Special guests were 1990s superintendent of schools Dr. Der rel Bryan of Lake Placid and assistant superintendent Rocky Kitchens. Perrine said he had never heard of a School board having a re-union. Watch out, New York! It is estimated within the next year Florida may surpass New York as the third most populated state in the U.S., trailing California and Texas. Floridas population is 19.5 million and New Yorks is 19.6 mil lion, reports Jim Turner of The News Service of Florida. A lot of New Yorkers are retiring to Florida, to enjoy our weather and no state income tax. Floridas population grew by 230,000 last year compared to a 75,000 gain for New York. County Commissioner Grady Johnson plans to seek re-election this year. So does County Commissioner Sue Birge. Both are Republicans. Gun deaths in the U.S. by homicide, suicide or accident peaked at 37,666 in 1993 and declined to a recent low of 28,393 in 2000, reported Chris Christoff and Ilan Kolet of Bloomberg News. U.S. gun deaths in 2010 were 31,328 and are projected to rise to nearly 33,000 in 2015, exceeding traffic fatalities, expected to be 32,000. Bloomberg says this year will see about 31,000 U.S. gun deaths, including just over 19,000 suicides and 11,000 homicides. About 32 percent of U.S. households own guns. About 70,000 Americans are treated annually for gunshot wounds at emergency rooms. While U.S. gun deaths are rising in recent years, U.S. traffic deaths have declined in the last 40 years, reports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Traffic deaths in the U.S. were 36 in 1900, 1,599 in 1910, 12,155 in 1920, 31,204 in 1930, 32,914 in 1940, 33,186 in 1950, 36,399 in 1960, 52,627 in 1970, 51,091 in 1980, 44,599 in 1990, 41,945 in 2000, and 32,885 in 2010. Traffic deaths were 32,367 in 2011 and 34,080 in 2012. More cars and trucks are on the roads today, and many more miles are driven. Deaths have decreased in part due to safety features such as air bags, seatbelts, and collapsible body design, along with lowered speed limits, better roads and divided highways, tougher laws on drunk or impaired driving, and restricted privileges for young drivers. Congratulations to Florida State for winning the NCAA national football championship, a thrilling 34-31 last-minute win over Auburn. Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Bucs for hiring Lovie Smith as their new head coach. This is a better hire than the last two head coaches. Ed Farmer, 82, of Bowling Green had predicted FSU would de feat Auburn 35-28. The retired dairy farmer has given up on his 10a cre orange grove, which has been hard hit over the years by root weevils, freezes and now greening. He worked a deal with Paul Wilkins to run cows on his land so he can get greenbelt taxation. Ed loves to watch the cows instead of working in the grove.

T he state fire marshal was called to determine the cause of the fire, which is still under in vestigation. A representative from the Fire Marshals Office said Tuesday that there appeared to be nothing suspicious and they are looking into electri cal issues as the cause. In all, two engines, two tankers, one chief car and 12 firefighters responded to the scene. The last unit cleared the scene at 8:41 p.m. New Years Day Fire On New Years Day the fire department was dispatched to 135 McEwen Road in Wauchula at 12:07 p.m. for a resi dential structure fire. A chief car, two engines, two tankers and 10 firefighters ar rived at the scene at 12:11 p.m. The report says that upon ar rival, a single-story wood-frame structure was fully in-volved. A law enforcement officer in formed the firefighters that the house was abandoned. A nearby house suffered dam age from radiant heat, says the fire report. The house sustained discoloring on the side of the house, the trailer skirt was melted, a window was broken, and several electrical outlets were damaged. An engine was then advised to go around the block and position on the west side of the structure. A deck gun was used to knock down most of the fire and then crews went in and extinguished hot spots, having the fire completely under control by 1 p.m. All Fire-Rescue vehicles left the scene at 2:21 p.m. The fire marshal was notified due to the possibility of arson. It is still under investigation. Year Ends, Begins With Structure Fires B y MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Hardee County Fire-Rescue ended the old and started the new year extinguishing fires. The New Years Eve fire took a familys shed and barn and the New Years Day fire destroyed an unoccupied home. Fire-Rescue was dispatched on New Years Eve to 1004 Louisiana St. in Wauchula for a structure fire at 5:42 p.m. When they arrived on the scene, firefighters saw a small shed and a pole barn in flames, says the departments report. A single-story house, which was within 10 feet of the other structures, was not affected by the fire and no one was injured. Two engines switched between fighting the fires and protecting the surrounding areas. One of the engines knocked out the fire with the deck gun and then cooled down a 500-gallon HARDEE COUNTY FIRE-RESCUE PHOTO An abandoned house on McEwen Road was engulfed in flames on New Years Day. Fire fighters were working under power lines, which can be seen at the top of the picture, therefore Peace River Electric Cooperative was on scene to secure the power. back with positive results. J anuary to March is the peak season for this illness. The H1N1, also called the swine flu, is especially haz ardous to the most vulnerable people. Among these are preg nant women, young children and the elderly, those over age 65, all of whom are more susceptible to this years virulent strain of the swine flu. Theres a difference in having this flu and perhaps suffering from the common cold. Influenza and a cold are both viruses and cannot be controlled by antibiotics. But, having a vaccination for the flu (a flu shot) is essential in preventing the illness and/or lessening its effects, said DiLealla. The difference is that a person with ILI comes down with the flu more suddenly, with a high fever (101 degrees and higher), body aches, chills and a sore throat. In that case, it is impor tant to see a medical provider as soon as possible. DiLealla recommends that anyone in the vulnerable popu lation, very young, elderly or pregnant, get a flu shot as soon as possible. They can be ob tained from a local pharmacy or a medical care provider. This especially includes peo ple who are vulnerable because of a recent transplant or major surgery, who must wait at least six weeks after such surgery to get a flu shot. It is most important for such people to consult with their physician in deciding when to get vaccinated. A woman who is pregnant can get the flu shot anytime during her pregnancy, from the first trimester on, explains DiLealla. When someone goes to their physician or pre-natal clinic to confirm pregnancy, a flu shot should be one of the first things considered, she says. If a person is exposed to someone who may have the flu, there is a five-to-seven day window of opportunity to get the flu shot and limit illness and/or begin treatment within 48 hours with Tamiflu once daily as a pro phylaxis (preventive) to lessen it effects. Once a person gets the flu, the primary treatment is with Tamiflu twice daily. People who do get the Tamiflu get over the illness 24 to 46 percent faster, said DiLealla. Tamiflu can only be obtained by prescription from ones medical provider, she noted. The best way to combat spread of the flu is prevention, stresses DeLealla. Hand wash ing frequently is essential. Cover a cough in your elbow, not with a handkerchief or tissue; they carry the germs, she says. Avoid touching eyes, nose or mouth, another way germs can be spread. Anyone with a fever, who may be coming down with the flu, should stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone. This means the fever is gone without using a fever-reducing medicine, which may only temporarily lower the temperature. And, wash your hands often, with soap and water. In between times, use an alcohol-based hand rub. atures were expected to climb to t he 40s. It was 43 degrees in Wauchula by 8 a.m. Wednesday. Residents are urged to be careful in staying indoors and using safe heating sources. Special care needs to be taken with space heaters and candles, which must be kept away from draperies and flammable furni ture. While outdoors, people need to stay dry and in wind-pro tected areas as much as possible, stay hydrated with non-alcoholic beverages and wear multiple layers of loose-fitting warm clothing. Pets should be brought inside at night. The weather is expected to re verse itself and produce 70and 80-degree weather by the weekend. He will recommend the site pl an be amended so the road going through the park will no longer empty out the back of the property onto Old Brad-enton Road, but will instead loop back through the park and out to the entrance on State Road 62. Doing so, he said, should alleviate any concerns over in creased traffic from neighboring residents. He plans to ask the County Commission to override the Planning & Zoning Board recommendation and approve the proposal. If approved, the expansion would have 20 lots ranging in size from four to 11 acres. Lambert said it would take 12-18 months to have the road built, retention ponds dug and additional site work completed before the expansion would be ready for a tenant. and came to a final rest in the nort hbound lanes, facing east. Wedemeier slid for about 25 feet in the southbound lanes, the FHP said. Wedemeier was transported to Bartow Memorial Hospital, where he succumbed to his in juries.

Animal control will get a new truck and boxes, there will be roof repairs on historic City Hall, work on the tennis courts, storm water upgrades along Orange Street intersections at Seventh and Ninth avenues, completing a water/sewer loop on Altman, Stenstrom and Hanchey roads, and a waste water/water study. Street sweeping will be contracted to save funds. At the offices, there will be in stallation of server and firewalls as well as e-mail archiving. The existing warehouse structure is beyond repair and staff will be relocated to the East Main Street building which houses the electric distribution crew. An exist ing metal shell storage shell on Griffin Road will be converted to a public works breakroom. Bowling Green D uring 2013, the countys northern community was mainly involved in planning and goal setting to begin growth and development in the coming year. With the help of a $425,000 Economic Development Authority grant, the city was able to complete a three-quarter mile water main to serve the planned 20-acre commerce park and completed design of the park. A grant from Mosaic enabled completion of plans for the construction of Main Street Park on a vacant downtown city lot. Office improvements, including updating the citys website, implementing on-line bill pay ment and accepting credit card payments, provided better cus tomer service For 2014, the city will continue the plans begun last year. Phase I of the Centanino Commerce Park will become a reality. $626,000 from EDA will enable the city to complete both phase I and II. A grant/loan from the state Department of Environmental Protection will provide for com pletion of a $1.8 million wastewater treatment plant and sewer system renovation project to get under way. Construction of the Main S treet Park will be done if the city receives a grant from the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program (FRDAP). The city plans to start a Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) to set aside a portion of city and county taxes for development along the U.S. 17 commercial corridor. And, the city plans for a re view and update of its land de velopment code. Zolfo Springs The last year has been a busy one for the countys southern community. A utility project on U.S. 17 South to Seventh Street was completed in preparation for the four-laning project through town. Along with that, there was a grant to help with vi sioning for the effects of the changes occurring in the town by the four-laning. Grants helped completion of the wastewater project and start of the second phase on new head works and effluent filters. The town also upgraded the water plant, dug a new well, repaired several storm drains and re placed culverts. There also were new sidewalks in-stalled on SR 66 and School-house road, and at Fifth Avenue and Suwannee Street. The town added a sewage sys tem truck and new mover to its fleet and began plans to hold a community fish fry for the eld erly since the first was so suc cessful. There was also application for recreation grants to upgrade the Carmen Vasquez and city parks. The town expects to continue its projects in 2014, and will schedule an Open House for the final phase of the Wastewater project. It will purchase two trucks for the utility department. It will apply for grants/ loans for improvements to City Hall/Civic Center, a pole barn for mainte nance supplies and equipment at the wastewater plant and a final one to help purchase a new tractor and utility truck. Since the agreement with the Sheriffs Office for a law en forcement officer has been successful, the town hopes to contract to add an additional deputy and more hours of cover age for the town.

Rodeo Bits B y Kathy Ann Gregg W ell, we have finally made it to the biggest kids competing, the Seniors Division for the Hardee Youth Rodeo Finals and banquet held in May. And from Hardee County, that includes Hailey Andrews, Loni Damboise and Lacey Cumbee for the cowgirls, and Seth McGee and cousins Pat Carlton, Jake Bolin and Justin Keen for the cowboys, along with bull riders (and brothers) Richard and Robert Faulkner. In the barrel-racing event, the winners buckle went to Hailey Andrews, with Lacey Cumbee coming in second place. Hailey received a second buckle for first place in the pole-bending event (this is her event, having gone to the national finals for high school rodeo in it). The goat-tying event includes both boys and girls, with Jake Bolin in second place, Loni Damboise in third, Pat Carlton in fourth, and Hailey Andrews in fifth place. I always look forward to the amazing dismounts of Jake and Pat, all the time wondering how they land on their feet! Breakaway roping showed Jake taking home the winners buckle, Pat in third place, and Loni in fourth place. Pat took third place and Hailey took fifth place in the team-roping headers, and Loni took third place in the team-roping heelers (remember that jun ior Dawson Cantu beat out all of them for the winners buckles in both heading and heeling!). The all-cowboy events are tie-down roping (also known as calf roping) and chute doggin. The tie-down roping saw Pat Carlton take second place, followed closely by Jake Bolin in third place and Seth McGee in fourth place. This event took Pat all the way to Wyoming this past summer in the national finals for high school rodeo. The Senior chute doggers were the top four placements, starting with Pat Carlton taking home the winners buckle, then Jake Bolin in second, Justin Keen in third (this is his only event), and Seth McGee in fourth place. Brothers Richard and Robert Faulkner of Bowling Green are bull riders, but they didnt give their actual placements. They are still bullriding this year in youth rodeos, as well as at Reality Ranch rodeos and other bullriding events. Congratulations to yall for a fine season! Keep these Bits, boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and shell keep you covered. Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! The local winners in the Seniors breakaway roping event ( from left) were Loni Damboise, fourth place; Jake Bolin, holding winner's buckle; and Pat Carlton, third.

8A The Herald-Advocate, January 9, 2014 Buzzards Bother Bear At Pioneer Park PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY P ioneer Park in Zolfo Springs has a nice wildlife refuge, which is open to the public five days a week. There are many animals there, including deer, racoons, an ostrich, a tortoise, a panther and alligators. There are many unwanted guests (buzzards) that fly into the refuge and stay for hours. Daryl Hall of Wauchula recently noticed buzzards were in the bear pen and some were pecking George. This is more an aggravation than causing injury. He contacted The Herald-Advocate. A follow-up visit confirmed the buzzards aggravating the bear. A large net over the entire bear pen would keep the buzzards away. Many buzzards roost in trees along Peace River in Zolfo Springs. Sometimes there are two or three hundred buzzards in the Zolfo area. A few dozen want to hang out during the day at the animal refuge. Buzzards are a protected species of birds and do a fine job of eating dead animals. Many animals are killed on roads by vehicles. The bear is big enough to defend itself against the buzzards, but repeated pecking during the day annoy George. There are places in the pen that the bear can escape the buzzards. Water is sometimes sprayed on the buzzards to chase them away for awhile. Attention: H ardee County Disposal Customers: Due to the Martin Luther King Jr. hol iday, Monday, January 20th, there will be no service on this day. Make up day will be on Thursday, January 23rd. All other days/routes for this week will remain the same.

Com missioners opted to ad vertise for additional applicants to fill one of the two at-large po sitions on the nine-person board. Commissioner Grady Johnson wanted to postpone both ap pointments and ask the cities to advertise for applicants before proceeding. The rest of the commission felt it should proceed with se lecting the seat from the slate of names submitted from Zolfo Springs, Bowling Green and Wauchula and postpone filling the at-large seat until the Jan. 23 meeting. Roberson was appointed with a 4-1 vote, with Johnson voting a gainst the motion. Stan Pelham currently serves in the available at-large seat and has applied for reappointment. He will be considered along with any additional applicants. State Statutes require repre sentatives of the local Chamber of Commerce, Farm Bureau, Heartland Workforce, Florida Phosphate Council and Enterprise Florida make up the re mainder of the board. Current board members are David Royal, Kenny Miller, Casey Dickson, Donna Dou-ble day, Terry Atchley, Sue Birge, Pelham and Roberson. The seat reserved for Enterprise Florida ha s been vacant since 2010 and a replacement has yet to be appointed by Gov. Rick Scott. The boards purpose is to solicit, rank and fund grants using severance taxes from phosphate mining to enhance economic de velopment and strengthen the economy to offset the void after mining ceases in a few decades. If mining activities continue at typical rates, the board should receive between $4 million and $6 million per year to disperse.

A: I was not into politics. I was more worried about my wrestling match being canceled after JFKs assassination. Q: Do you think it was better back then than it is now? A: It was not better or worse, but just a lot different. Its a different culture. Q: What changes do you agree with? A: More rights for women, end of segregation, and the Voting Rights Act. Q: What changes do you disagree with? A: I highly disagree with the lower standards of schools. Q: What did you do in your free time back then?

Q: What was one interesting or exciting thing that happened to you while you were in the Navy? A: I had too many interesting and exciting things to mention just one. Q: Where were you stationed? A: I was stationed at boot camp, Great Lakes Naval Station, school at Pensacola, school at Camp Pendleton, Okinawa and Da Nang, Vietnam. Q: What was your position in the Navy?

Hardee Living 2B The Herald-Advocate, January 9, 2014 This week in history, as re s earched from the archival pages of The Florida Ad-vo cate, the Hardee County Herald and The Herald-Ad-vocate . 75 YEARS AGO According to Mrs. J.C. Page of Wauchula, who is in charge of entertainment features for the 10th annual Hardee County Strawberry Festival, which opens its gates to the public on Monday, Jan. 16, a large number of the most beautiful girls in this section of the state are entering their names as candidates. A Florida teaching certificate based on four years of college training has been issued by Colin English, state superintend ent of public instruction, to L. Dale Carlton of Wauchula. The governor has declared Jan. 23-28 as Florida Citrus Week. The industry is also in need of a good citrus year being declared by someone. The B&B in Wauchula is hav ing special prices for kerosene at 39 cents for five gallons, flour at 15 cents for five pounds, coffee at 15 cents for one pound, sugar at 23 cents for five pounds and lard is 81 cents for an eightpound container. 50 YEARS AGO The Wauchula Water Works Improvement Project, in the works during the final half of 1963, is nearing the final stages. Traffic violators numbered 72 while 35 were charged with drunkenness to lead the arrests for the month of December ac cording to the monthly report from the Hardee County Sher iffs Office. Fishermen and picnickers who shied away from the new parking area on Peace River because of county Keep Out signs are urged to come back its all a mistake. Signs were posted by the county road department at the area on the old Avon Park Highway where the new boat launching ramp and parking area was constructed. The signs were designed for the new county park on Charlie Creek, but were placed at the wrong park. Attention Voters: Persons who have not voted since 1960 must c ome to the registration office and re-register on or before April 4, 1964, in order to be eligible to vote in the May primary elections. 25 YEARS AGO In a surprise action Monday night, the Wauchula City Council unanimously appointed Wayne Bass as acting chief of police as recommended by Mayor Marshall Nuccio. Hardee Countys first baby of 1989 was born Jan. 3 at 2:56 a.m. to Steven and Karen Ruff of River Valley Mobile Home Park in Wauchula. The infant, Steven Charles Ruff Jr., came into the world at eight pounds and one ounce and 20 inches in length. The Hardee girls basketball varsity team won its seventh game of the season Monday night at Sarasota against Booker, 59-54. Steven Lamar Skinner turned 1 year old Jan. 1, 1989.

The locally owned and operated Best Western Heritage Inn & Suites will be finished by the end of the year, said Lavon Cobb and Parker Keen, whose businesses merged for the project. An 11-year-old quarterhorse that was bred and raised in Hardee County is now a world champion.

David and Tiffany Rodriguez, children of Omar and Mary Rodriguez of Bowling Green, celebrated their birthdays on Saturday, Jan. 3, at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. Way Back When Fort Green News By R illa Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! T here were probably lots of sad people Monday morning when the Christmas break was over and students and teachers had to return to school. When I was growing up, most every body loved school and was glad to get back. That was in the days when no one had land-line telephones, much less a cell phone, and you did not get to see your friends except at church or in school. Our pastor Brother Steve and Tara have returned from a visit to Michigan to visit their daugh ter and family. While there Brother Steve said they icefished one day but did not even get a bite. They had a great time and it was cold but they left just in time to be able to fly home with no cancellations. Our coun try to the north is in serious trou ble as we are forecast to have bad weather also. Everyone needs to pray for their neighbor. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Juanita Tindell. I did not know about it until the paper came out. Juanita worked for Davis & Roberts and I worked at First Federal a long time ago. She told me about a vacation she and her husband took and it was the best one ever. They rented a houseboat near Leesburg and sailed the St. Johns River for a week. She painted such glorious pic tures that Kay and I rented a houseboat. It was the worst vacation I had ever had! There were alligators constantly beside the boat and the first night I was awake every hour and heard the time announced on the radio. Juanita never could understand me not enjoying that trip! I had not seen her in a long time but considered her a friend. Our sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Darlene Davis. I knew Darlene and her c hildren from 4-H. It was reported in church Sun day that Angie Warnock re ceived a bad report from the doctor. Betty Waters enjoys at tending functions when able. Betty and Clint Walker have not been able to come to church for some time. Jimmy Fields is anticipating gall bladder surgery when the doctors determine he is able to have surgery. Please pray for all of these and others you might know about. Our sincere sympathy is also extended to Nancy McQuaig and family in the death of her uncle in West Virginia. Louise Durrance had a won derful 90th birthday celebration last Sunday. The Methodist Church Fellowship Hall was full, and Louise enjoyed visiting with each person as they stopped by her chair. Her son, Danny, said his mother had worked hard in the field right along with his dad and then came and cooked and washed clothes. Just all the things the Mama always does or at least always did in the olden days! Simple Faith Quartet sang at Fort Green last Sunday night and did a terrific job. They are a great quartet. Gulf State Quartet singers sang one song with them, and I learned how to spell DGees name. She is the grandmother for the new baby Ripp. Unless you read last weeks news you wont know what this is about and can just ignore it! John Alexander has been visiting his son and family for a couple of weeks. He is always faithful to attend church when in our area, even if his relatives are unable to attend. Please pray for one another and our nation. PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY Ad eline Hudson, who lives at Sally Place and David Court in Wauchula, put up a lot of Christmas decorations at her home this year.

I had a pedal car as a child and am wondering if you can suggest a col lector I can contact, since I have some restoration work I need done? Sam, Broken Arrow, Okla. A: Ron Hughes is owner of Soda Pops in Miami, Ariz., a shop that specializes in gas pumps, signage and jukeboxes. He has more than 50 pedal cars in his inventory, and he can help you. His addresses are 505 Sullivan St., Miami, AZ 85539; and oldrestorer77@hotmail.com. Q: While cleaning out my grandmother's home, my sister and I found a kitchen gadget that has us stumped. I am enclosing a picture and hope you can identify it for us. Kathy, Los Ranchos, N.M. A: I, too, was stumped by your gadget. After searching through several reference books, I can now identify it as a "pie lifter." It was used to lift pies out of a hot oven. These are fairly rare and generally sell in the $50 to $150 range, depending on manufac turer and rarity. Q: I have several dozen Hummel figurines, and I need you to recommend a good price guide that you trust. Betty, Pueblo, Colo. A: There are at least a dozen price guides. Some good, some not so good. One of the better ones, I think, is "The Official M.J. Hummel Price Guide: Figurines & Plates" by Heidi Ann Von Recklinghausen. Published by Krause Books and in its second edition, this guide is com prehensive and reflects current values. With more than 2,000 images in full color, and updated listings, this one is highly recom mended. Q: I have a "Bozo Under the Sea" record set, which I re ceived for my birthday during the early 1950s. What do you think it is worth? Charlie, Homestead, Fla. A: I have seen the 78-rpm set sell in the $14 to $25 range, depending on the dealer and the condition of the recordings. "Bozo at the Circus," even more popular, sells for about the same.

You sleep a little, you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. So you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up.Proverbs 6:9-11 (NCV)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y Give everyone his legitimate due, whether it be taxes or reverence or respect. Keep out of debt altogether, except that perpetual debt of love which we owe one another.Romans 13:7-8 (PME)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y A good reputation is more valuable than the most expensive perfume. Fin-ish ing is better than starting! Patience is better than pride. Dont be quick-tempered; that is being a fool. Ecclesiastes 7:1,8 (TLB)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y Then Peter came up and asked Him, Lord, how often am I to forgive my brother, if he goes on wronging me? As many as seven times? Jesus replied, I do not say seven times; I say seventy times seven.Matthew 21:21 (NEB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with You there is forgiveness; therefore, You are to be feared (respected, honored).Psalm 130:3-4 (NIV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Then Jesus told him, You believe because you have seen Me. Blessed are those who havent seen Me, but believe anyway.John 20:29 (NLT)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y It is Gods Spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty One, that gives him understanding.

We're no longer a cou ple, but Baxter is still with me, and he insists on jumping onto the table and begging food. How can I break him of this habit? Janine in Reno, Nev. DEAR JANINE: It can be tough to break a bad habit in a cat, especially one that was al lowed to persist for so long. You may never be able to completely train Baxter to stay off the table or to not beg for food, but you can discourage such behavior. Don't feel guilty about doing it, either. Baxter likely will yowl pitifully at you as you eat dinner without him. But don't allow him on the table at all. How do you do that? Easy. When Baxter moves to jump onto the table, either hiss at him or shake something at him that will frighten him slightly. Many owners use a can of pennies, which rattles loudly when shaken. Others simply wave a rolled-up newspaper at their cat, and that's enough to make their pet stop the aberrant behavior. Repeat this hiss or penny-can shake each and every time he tries to climb onto the table. And, whenever Baxter stays down through the whole meal, or im mediately after you finish eating, shower him with praise. To make this even easier, try feeding Baxter shortly before your dinnertime. If you're unable to do that, insist that he stays off the table and doesn't get away with that behavior either with you or with guests.

Q: Years ago I laid down a brick walkway in my backyard using old building bricks. Lately I noticed that the bricks have become uneven. Some are crooked, but in other areas the bricks are sinking slightly, creating dips in the walkway. What's going on? Can I fix this problem? Chet B., Ocala, Fla. A: Walkways built with bricks (also known as pavers) can be come uneven over time due to normal ground movement or a shift in the sand base on which such walkways are typically built. This leads to the problems you've described, with bricks that are out of alignment and a few depressed areas in the walkway. If the uneven bricks don't pres ent a safety problem, consider delaying a repair on these sections. You can try to move the bricks back into alignment, but that might not work without undertaking more time-consuming or costly repairs. The depressed bricks can be lifted back into place by repair ing the base underneath them. Use a pry bar or other lever to carefully lift up a sunken brick. Then, using one end of a sturdy piece of wood such as a two by four, tamp the existing sand down into place. Put the brick back into the tamped-down section, tapping with a mallet if it doesn't go in. Measure the different in height between the sunken brick and the surrounding bricks. Remove the sunken brink and fill the section with sand (that has rocks and larger particles screened out of it) up to the height of the measurement you took. Tamp down the new sand and remeasure the height, adding sand if necessary to bring the brick level. Once the brick is in place and flush with the surrounding bricks, pour sand over and around the repaired brick so that it fills the crevices. Use a broom to sweep sand from the top of the bricks and into the crevices. HOME TIP: Pull or treat weeds that spring up between paving bricks as soon as possible, before their roots have time to spread. This helps keep a brick walkway even over time.

His business name is Dr. Rigor-Mor tis. Write down the word museum. Then take off the m, and it will spell u-se-um. That says it all, dont it? Should a man-size hole exist in downtown Wauchula, FL, and it extends thousands of miles coming out at the bottom of Mother Earth and also there is a ladder coming out. You get on the ladder going through Mother Earth. Finally some months later you come out at the bottom, leave the hole and ladder. But unfortunately when you have completed your journey, you will find yourself coming out down there upside down on the ladder. Think about it. Years ago I was looking for myself a young, nice and polite girl, like say Bonnie Parker, the one who was going steady with Clyde Barrow. Oh, you remember them, dont you? Bonnie and Clyde. Why, they even made a movie about them. This is a true story. For years I had heard that Spook Hill in Lake Wales was an optical illusion, like when you are driving down hill you are really driving uphill and vice versa. Well, one day a buddy and me returned to Spook Hill, and I took along a big level. According to its reading, then Spook Hill without a doubt is an optical illusion, and let this be the final chapter on the subject. I heard that last night they had a ladies night out at a bar just outside of Avon Park, but they had to close early because none of them qualified. Listen to me young men. This great love you say that you have for your beloved sweetheart and the romantic kindness you lay at her doorsteps can be better claimed not by you but her, and how she sees it from her purview. When I think back to ancient times when some pharaoh sitting there on the throne of might power, head of 20,000 ironclad soldiers, and by the tilt of his thumb could have one murdered at the guillo tine, but with all his power, still and yet never had the delight of even one ice cold Coca-Cola. Without any doubt whatsoever, I would be a world-renowned psychiatrist if I could just remember those big stupid words they use. I sat down with my little Sugar Possum last night, and we had a big summit. I told her we should make things work from now on in, because the one problem we have, and its a small one at that, is that I love her and she dont love me. My cousin, the one that we call Slant, was recently in a bad car wreck. He lost three toes and his job. He was an accountant. Truman A. Thomas, 77, is an Avon Park resident with many friends and associates in Hardee County. He is the father of Sherry White of Wauchula, and is a retired salesman and former radio disc jockey whose morning show topped the Nielsen Ratings.

Q: I have a question about the actor who played Jared Leto's father in "Dallas Buyers Club," which I saw over the holidays. He looks so familiar, but I can't quite place him. Kyra T., via email A: You're thinking of character actor James DuMont, who's been on tons of TV shows like "American Horror Story," "Treme," "Nashville" and "Bonnie and Clyde," and on the big screen in "The Butler," "Ocean's Thir teen," "War of the Worlds" and "Along Came Polly," to name just a few. James was thrilled to be in "Dallas Buyers Club," which centers on Ron Woodroof (played by Matthew Mc Conaughey), who works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medica tion they need after he is diagnosed with the dis ease. James plays the es tranged father of Jared Leto's character, Rayon, who's trans gender and HIV positive. When I recently spoke with James, he told me about working with Jared: "It's a really powerful scene we share. Jared does powerful work in this; as soon as we finished our scene, I tweeted that Jared would get an Oscar nomination for this role. And he seems to be the frontrunner at this point. I've worked with Oscar winners, and I can see and identify Oscar-caliber work. I get tweets and emails from all over the world where people tell me that our scene is so powerful, poignant and heartbreaking. It's nice to have a little breakout scene like this after doing so many projects. It's tough for a character actor." Q: This past summer I got involved with a series called "Mistresses." Can you tell me if it's going to return, or was it just something they put on for the summer? Liz R., via email A: ABC has renewed "Mistresses" for a 13-episode second season, which is scheduled to air in summer 2014. The show, which is based on the British series of the same name, stars Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan and Yunjin Kim. The show centers on the lives of four female friends, and their involvement in an array of illicit and complex relationships. Q: I really enjoy "The Glades," but I think I read someplace that it is being canceled. I truly hope this is not so. Can you please find out its status? Diane, via email A: The A&E network decided this past fall to cancel "The Glades" after four seasons. The police procedural broke records for A&E when it debuted, but slowly and steadily it lost more than one-third of its viewers throughout the series run, so the network canceled it. READERS: I told you I'd let you know when I had an exact date for the season two premiere of "Vikings," and I'm a woman of my word. "Vikings" returns to the History channel Thursday, Feb. 27, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. So don't forget to tune in! Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

12B The Herald-Advocate, January 9, 2014 1:9c w ww.healthybladder.net W W a a l l k k Y Y o o u u r r W W a a y y t t o o B B e e t t t t e e r r H H e e a a l l t t h h Ancient Greek physician Hippoc rates (known as the father of Western medicine) once said, "Walking is man's best medi cine." What a relatively simple and inexpensive pill to take to make such a big impact on main taining and improving your health. The inspiration for my re newed interest in walking is Sheri Simson, aka "The Pole Lady." Pole walking is an exer cise where you walk with two poles that look like ski poles. It's a low-impact exercise that not only makes walking more beneficial, it actually takes less effort and is easier on the body. I have joint pain, so walking is just about the only exercise that I can effectively do. Walking with Simson's Keenfit Walking Poles boosts the benefits of my exer cise. It basically turns a simple walk around the block into an aerobic total body workout. Pole walking is a rhythmic, energizing form of exercise that uses a specially designed pair of walking poles that helps you (with less effort) use your entire body rather than just your lower body. It's like skiing without the skis or the snow. I like to call it "Texas skiing"! Pole walking originated from the sport of cross-country skiing. It's believed to have started around the 1930s, when the cross-country ski coaches of Fin land were struggling to keep their athletes in peak form during the offseason. It soon became popular with non-athletes once they discovered the total-body benefits and the overall fun of pole walking, and it spread throughout Northern Europe. Pole walking, also known as Nordic walking, has only re cently been seen here in North America but it is here to stay! You use less than 50 percent of your major muscles when walking without poles. Walking with fitness poles, you use more than 90 percent of your major mus cles. The poles help to spread your weight out, lessening the load when your feet hit the ground by 26 percent. This makes a big difference for people like me who have back, hip, knee, ankle or foot problems. Walking with poles also naturally aligns your spine and strengthens your core with each step helping you to stand and sit taller. I usually lose a pound a day when I walk using the Keen fit Walking Poles. You don't have to walk as far or work as hard. Walking poles help to increase your cardio by 20 percent and your calorie burn by up to 48 percent without any extra effort. And 30 minutes of pole walking is equal to 50 minutes of regular walking. It's one of the most beneficial and re warding activities that you'll ever do. Studies on walking and health have determined that patients with knee arthritis who walked three times a week "reduced their rates of pain and disability by 47 percent." Patients at high risk for diabetes who walked and made other healthy lifestyle changes reduced their risk by 58 percent. Walking has been shown to reduce anxiety, and it is the No. 1 treatment for improving sleep. Before starting your walk, try drinking a caffeinated drink. A recent study found that not only can caffeine wake you up it can also boost your reactive abil ity (the ability to change direc tion quickly). According to Women's Health, just one cup can often make a difference in your quickness/alertness so maybe you should meet friends for coffee before your pole walk rather than after. Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis If you prefer a cool drink be fore working out, try my recipe for Greek Iced Coffee. It pro vides caffeine, antioxidants, a lit tle boost of calcium and protein. The new year brings a new op portunity to take charge of your health. Happy pole walking!

I have gone through 12 weeks of the nastiest, worst illness possible. I never hear anything on TV about it. J.C. ANSWER: I'll have another go at shingles. Others probably think I overdo it. But it's such a common problem of older peo ple that it deserves repetition. Shingles is the work of the reawakened chickenpox virus that has been asleep in nerve cells ever since a person was infected, usually in childhood. It's a safe bet to say you were in fected even if you don't recall it; more than 95 percent of adults were. The rash of shingles usually disappears in two to four weeks. Pain, however, can stay with you. The pain is now called postherpetic neuralgia. In making the trip to the skin, the virus damaged the nerve roots that it crawled down to reach the skin. Pain is a consequence of the nerve injury. A large number of treatments exist for this aftermath of shin gles. One is amitriptyline, whose primary use is relief of depres sion. It also has pain-relieving properties in doses lower than what's given for depression. Neurontin (gabapentin) is a seizure-control medicine that often is successful in suppressing pain. The extended-release form of this drug, called Gralise, is given only once a day. Lyrica (pregabalin) has had a good record in quieting postherpetic neuralgia Lidocaine skin patches, placed on the skin where pain is felt, are another way to ease pain without taking an oral medicine. Lido caine is a numbing agent. The latest innovation for shingles treatment is Qutenza, another skin-patch medicine. The doctor has to apply this patch, and lets it stay on the skin for an hour. Then the doctor removes the patch, and the effect of the medicine lasts for three months. It is expensive. In cases where no treatment brings relief, opioids pain reliev ers of the morphine family have a place in treatment, so long as they are supervised carefully by the doctor. The booklet on shingles ex plains this problem in depth. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue No. 1201W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE: I suffered from an enlarged prostate, so I was sent to a urologist. He checked for cancer, but I don't have it. He put me on Flomax and Avodart. After three years, the doctor said the medicines were no longer working and that I had to have surgery or my bladder would be damaged and I would have to carry a bag for the rest of my life. I am 57. I had a transurethral resection of the prostate, TURP. It's been two months, and I still am passing blood clots. Is this normal. J.G. ANSWER: It's normal to bleed after a TURP, but it's not normal to be bleeding two months after the procedure. Give the urologist a call. Let him examine you again and de termine why the bleeding is lasting this long. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

C The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, January 9 2014 PAGE ONE Cat s Had Hard Holiday Outing By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee Wildcat five faced several tough opponents during the holiday tournament games and in the start of the sec ond season on Sept. 2 against Polk powerhouse Bar-tow. The spring routine continued on Tuesday with a visit from District 11 opponent. There is another district home game to morrow (Friday), when De-Soto visits. Next weeks game include a Monday trip to Frostproof, a Tuesday visit from McKeel Academy, the only opponent Hardee has beaten, and a trip to Sebring next Friday. That leaves five games on the regular season schedule, Jan. 21 in a 7 p.m. varsity-only home game against Mulberry, visits from Lakeland on Jan. 23 and Avon Park on Jan. 24. On Jan. 30, the Senior Night game honoring Steve Metayer and Tyler Helms is Lake Placid. Hardee closes out the season against Lake Wales Vanguard in the Mosiac Stinger Shootout on Jan. 31. The Class 5A, Region 3, District 11 playoffs are Feb. 4, 5 and 8. Hardees holiday tournament games began on Dec. 27 with the first game in the East Lee Tourney, playing against Lehigh Acres, which won 81-55. For Hardee, Steve Metayer continued to control the tempo with 31 points, adding a pair of blocked shots, a steal, an assist and eight rebounds. His freshman brother, Levinson Metayer finished with seven points, while Marco DeLeon had six, Dustin Smith five, Djes Youte four and Deshawndre Debo McMillan two points. Levinson Metayer had a pair of steals, and De-Leon, Youte and Levinson Metayer each had four rebounds. Metayer added four assists. Hardee next headed to Warner University for a Dec. 28 tilt against Kathleen, which won 65-39. Steve Metayer had 19 points, pulled down 10 rebounds and added a pair of steals, a trio of assists and a blocked shot. Y oute followed up with eight points, while Dustin Smith had six and DeLeon and Livenson Metayer each three points. Neither Tyler Smith, Helms, Jordan Jones or McMillan made this game. Jones was not available for the holiday games and the other players missed some of them. Youte had a half dozen rebounds and Deleon added five. Livenson Metayer had five re bounds and five assists. The Wildcats went back to the East Lee Tourney on Dec. 30, where they faced Palmetto Ridge of Naples, which won 8357. The senior Metayer led with 18 points, with Dustin Smith at nine, Levinson Met-ayer and DeLeon each eight, Tyler Smith seven, Youte four and Helms three points. DeLeon and Steve Metayer each blocked a shot. Metayer had a half dozen rebounds and his brother added five. Youte had four and DeLeon had three. The final tournament game was against Island Coast of Cape Coral, which won 62-38. Again, Steve Metayer paced Hardee, scoring 17 points, adding six rebounds, three steals and an assist. Youte had a pair of blocked shots and seven rebounds. DeLeon added four rebounds and a pair of steals. Hardee started over with a Jan. 2 trip to face high-flying Bartow, which dominated 63-18. Steve Metayer got 17 points and Youte added the addition one at the charity stripe. Youte, however, pulled down eight re boudns, with other players limited to one or two. Steve Metayer had four steals. A summary of season-to-date stats shows every player in the scoring column, varying from Steve Metayer with a 23.9 average to Tyler Smith with a 1.5 av erage. Livenson Metayer, who has only played varsity in the past six games averages 4.8 points per game. Similarly, with rebounding, blocks, steals and assists, every player has contributed. 1:9c Pe t Care Center 1:9tfc NOW WEEKLY NEW LOCATION NOW OPEN D aily Special 99 Small Hot or Iced Coffee Happy Hour Daily 3 -6 pm 99 Any Size Hot or Iced Coffee and Iced Tea 12:19-1:10c 1:9c 1.

COMPARING HOSPITAL INFECTION RATES The Medicare Hospital Compare website now provides in formation about hospital safety into two areas that are especially important to seniors: prevention of Clostridium difficile infec tions and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream infections. It gath ered this information through the National Healthcare Safety Network at the Centers for Dis ease Control and Prevention. C. diff, as it's called, can be life-threatening, as it causes severe diarrhea, which causes dehydration. It can develop after taking a course of antibiotics or being in a hospital. The spores that cause the illness can stay on surfaces bed railings, coun ters, telephones for months. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than a half million people get C. diff every year, and it's very difficult to treat. Seniors age 65 and older are 10 times more susceptible to C. diff. MRSA isn't a walk in the park either. It's a staph infection that resists the antibiotics usually used to treat it. The infection can spread all over the body. It's usu ally seen in people who have been in hospitals or health-care settings, or who have had invasive procedures. In other words, both of these illnesses are serious and poten tially life-threatening. If you have your choice of hospitals for a procedure, don't you want the one that's more likely to keep you safe from in fections? Go to the Hospital Compare site (www.medicare.gov/hospi talcompare) and enter your ZIP code. You can click up to three hospitals to compare. Click Compare Now and then click Readmissions, Complications and Death. Click Healthcare As sociated Infections.

In the first crash, young Je nese N. Manzanita Reyna of Wauchula was driving her 2008Nissan Titan on Florida Avenueabout a quarter-mile north ofState Road 64 around 2:30 a.m. She was traveling south on the road when she approached a left-hand curve and began to traveloff the pavement and onto thegrass. The Florida Highway Pa trol report says Reyna then at tempted to get back onto theroadway and steer left, causingher to overcorrect and begin torotate in a counter-clockwise di rection. The Nissan then overturned while crossing both lanes andwent into the eastern grass shoul der, the FHP said. There, Reyna’s car struck a wooden power pole and Reyna,who was not wearing a seatbelt,was ejected from the vehicle.The car came to a final rest on itsroof, facing in a northerly direc tion. It became engulfed inflames, said the report. Reyna died at the scene at 2:39 a.m. She was the first fatal ity to occur on Hardee County roadways for 2014. Her funeral service was Tues day at St. Michael CatholicChurch. Milton Wedemeier, also of Wauchula, was driving a 2003Honda VTX 1800 on New Year’sDay around 1:25 p.m. onCracker Lane when the secondfatal accident occurred. The motorcycle was going north on Cracker Lane just out side the Wauchula city limitswhen, for an unknown reason, itoverturned on its left side caus ing Wedemeier to be ejected, theFHP reported. The motorcycle continued to travel north for about 50 feetSee FATALITIES2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate This year’s flu may be worse than usual, and, it is at its peakright now. A 28-year-old local woman who had the flu died Monday.Her death cannot be confirmedas coming from the flu, how ever, as there were several otherfactors involved, the HardeeCounty Health Department said.Joann DiLealla, nursing directorat the Health Depart-ment, didconfirm that the woman had nothad a flu shot. There is a huge increase in the number of people being treatedfor “the flu,” reports say. In December, Florida Hospital sent 42 samples of peoplewith influenza-like illnesses(ILI) tested for the H1N1, orswine flu, under the statewideepidemiology gateway. Ofthese, four came back positive,meaning only about 10 percentof suspected flu cases came See SWINE FLU2ABy JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateThis is the second of two partson what the new year will bring.This week, the municipalities: Wauchula Wauchula had a busy 201213 in many areas, from main taining files to maintaining thelaw enforcement presence onthe 20 miles of the city streets,its residences and businesses.Data services are becoming in creasingly important and thecity is in the process of convert ing its billing system to allow e-mail notices and paymentoptions for those who want itthat way. The downtown directory was updated by the Community Re development/Main StreetWauchula office. It will prove to be another hectic time for the city in 2013-14 with a variety of projects.One is purchase of vehicles andequipment, including: officer See 20142A By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Plans to expand the Hardee County Commerce Park took asetback Thursday when thePlanning & Zoning Board votedto deny the requested zoningchange. The staff report submitted with the application recom mended the board approve therequest. Now it will be up to the County Commission, whichwill hear the issue at its nextscheduled meeting on Jan. 23and ultimately decide whetherplans to expand the park canproceed. The Industrial Development Authority submitted the requestto change the 105 acres imme diately south of the existingpark from Farm Residential andMultiple Family Residential toCommercial/Industrial Busi-ness Center (C/IBC). The IDA purchased the prop erty in 2008 from Dewey andJudy Terrell for $1.5 million. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said the current park iszoned as C/IBC and only hastwo available lots left to locatebusinesses looking to start or re locate operations in HardeeCountry. County Planner Kevin Denny, who wrote the staff report,said the C/IBC zoning changewould allow for most uses, suchas manufacturing, to locate inthe park without any additionalapproval. Something having a signifi cant impact to the area, such asa chemical manufacturing plantor other potential hazardousbusiness, however, would haveto go through additional permit ting and obtain a major specialexception, he said. Planning & Zoning Board members sided with neighbor ing residents who came to themeeting and expressed concernsover increased traffic andwater/sewer issues if lines wereextended through the park andtied into the county’s WauchulaHills utility lines. The board voted 4-0 to deny the request, with Don Chancey,Ralph Arce, Gordon Norris andAnn Wilson voting against theproposal. Roger Conley abstained from voting because of a potentialconflict of interest due to hiscompany caretaking the orangegrove on the property. Lambert said he will discuss the issue with the IDA board atits meeting on Tuesday morn ing. See P&Z NIXES2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Tuesday may have been one of the coldest days HardeeCounty has seen in quite awhile. It wasn’t just the low temper ature, there have been otherslower. And, it wasn’t just thelack of sun. It’s been overcastlots of times. It was the cold and length of it, combined with that elusivewind chill factor. According to the Fawn Weather Site at the Range CattleStation in Ona, the low Tuesdaywas 36 degrees and the highwas 51. But, a wind chill advisory is sued through the Hardee CountyEmergency Manage-ment officelate Tuesday afternoon toWednesday at 7 a.m. noted thata 35 degree temperature with 15mile-per-hour winds reallyamounts to 25 degrees. And itdrops a degree or more for eachadditional five-mile-per hourwind gust. Hardee County joined the rest of the nation in suffering the ef fects of the polar vortex, a cy clone of high winds usually atthe North Pole, which hoppedon the jet stream and traveledsouth through much of theUnited States, including thedeep South where temperatureswere in the teens.

Donell Mathews of Melbourne remembers that around 1975 there were five Hardee County men who were U.S. Air Forcecolonels — himself, Scott Smith, Harry Delaney, Bill Moran andLouis Makowski. ——— Daryl Hall of Wauchula recently visited the animal refuge at Pioneer Park and noticed buzzards were aggravating the bear. Therewere about 20 buzzards in the pen and several on occasion werepecking at the bear. I went by the next day and there were about 15 buzzards in the pen, and one or two buzzards periodically would peck at the bear.Hall believes a net should be stretched above the bear’s pen to keepthe buzzards out. This sounds like a good idea. ——— The per capita consumption of blueberries in the U.S. has gone from 15.5 ounces in 1995 to 39.5 ounces in 2011, said Kathy Blake,a spokeswoman for the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council in Folson,Calif. Blueberries are considered a super-healthy food. The Florida blueberry season runs from April through May and acreage and production in the Sunshine State continues to grow, re ported Kevin Boufard of the Lakeland Ledger last year. Florida blue berry acreage has grown from 1,200 acres in 1992 to 4,500 in 2012.Florida production has grown to 15 to 21 million pounds annually,with farm prices ranging from $3 to $6 a pound, and the overall cropvalue reaching over $60 million. There are several blueberry growers in Hardee and Polk coun ties. Just about everybody enjoys fresh blueberries and blueberry muffins. Blueberries are often used in pancakes, fruit salads, pies,cobblers, and other foods. ——— The 43rd annual Alafia River Rendezvous in Homeland north of Fort Meade will be held Jan. 18 25. The campers depict life inthe early 1800s. Located just west of U.S. 17, the event is generallyopen to the public the last two days for an admission price. ——— Bruce Perrine announced a re-union of the 1990s Hardee School Board was to be held Wednesday noon, Jan. 8, at the JavaCafe. The other board members at the time were Wayne Godwin ofLake Placid, Jerold Knight of Miami, Jim Stallings and DonnieAutry. Special guests were 1990s superintendent of schools Dr. Der rel Bryan of Lake Placid and assistant superintendent RockyKitchens. Perrine said he had never heard of a School board havinga re-union. ——— Watch out, New York! It is estimated within the next year Florida may surpass New York as the third most populated state inthe U.S., trailing California and Texas. Florida’s population is 19.5 million and New York’s is 19.6 mil lion, reports Jim Turner of The News Service of Florida. A lot ofNew Yorkers are retiring to Florida, to enjoy our weather and nostate income tax. Florida’s population grew by 230,000 last yearcompared to a 75,000 gain for New York. ——— County Commissioner Grady Johnson plans to seek re-election this year. So does County Commissioner Sue Birge. Both are Re publicans. ——— Gun deaths in the U.S. by homicide, suicide or accident peaked at 37,666 in 1993 and declined to a recent low of 28,393 in 2000,reported Chris Christoff and Ilan Kolet of Bloomberg News. U.S.gun deaths in 2010 were 31,328 and are projected to rise to nearly33,000 in 2015, exceeding traffic fatalities, expected to be 32,000. Bloomberg says this year will see about 31,000 U.S. gun deaths, including just over 19,000 suicides and 11,000 homicides. About 32percent of U.S. households own guns. About 70,000 Americans aretreated annually for gunshot wounds at emergency rooms. ——— While U.S. gun deaths are rising in recent years, U.S. traffic deaths have declined in the last 40 years, reports the National High way Traffic Safety Administration. Traffic deaths in the U.S. were 36 in 1900, 1,599 in 1910, 12,155 in 1920, 31,204 in 1930, 32,914 in 1940, 33, 186 in 1950, 36,399 in 1960, 52,627 in 1970, 51,091 in 1980, 44, 599 in 1990, 41,945 in 2000, and 32,885 in 2010. Traffic deaths were 32,367 in2011 and 34,080 in 2012. More cars and trucks are on the roads today, and many more miles are driven. Deaths have decreased in part due to safety featuressuch as air bags, seatbelts, and collapsible body design, along withlowered speed limits, better roads and divided highways, tougherlaws on drunk or impaired driving, and restricted privileges foryoung drivers. ——— Congratulations to Florida State for winning the NCAA national football championship, a thrilling 34-31 last-minute win overAuburn. ——— Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Bucs for hiring Lovie Smith as their new head coach. This is a better hire than the last two headcoaches. ——— Ed Farmer, 82, of Bowling Green had predicted FSU woul d de feat Auburn 35-28. The retired dairy farmer has given up on his 10-acre orange grove, which has been hard hit over the years by rootweevils, freezes and now greening. He worked a deal with PaulWilkins to run cows on his land so he can get greenbelt taxation. Ed loves to watch the cows instead of working in the grove.

The state fire marshal was called to determine the cause ofthe fire, which is still under in vestigation. A representativefrom the Fire Marshal’s Officesaid Tuesday that there ap-peared to be nothing suspiciousand they are looking into electri cal issues as the cause. In all, two engines, two tankers, one chief car and 12firefighters responded to thescene. The last unit cleared thescene at 8:41 p.m. New Year’s Day Fire On New Year’s Day the fire department was dispatched to135 McEwen Road in Wau-chula at 12:07 p.m. for a resi dential structure fire. A chief car, two engines, two tankers and 10 firefighters ar rived at the scene at 12:11 p.m.The report says that upon ar rival, a single-story wood-frame structure was fully in-volved. A law enforcement officer in formed the firefighters that thehouse was abandoned. A nearby house suffered dam age from radiant heat, says thefire report. The house sustaineddiscoloring on the side of thehouse, the trailer skirt wasmelted, a window was broken,and several electrical outletswere damaged. An engine was then advised to go around the block and posi tion on the west side of thestructure.

Itis still under investigation. Year Ends, Begins With Structure Fires By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Hardee County Fire-Rescue ended the old and started thenew year extinguishing fires. The New Year’s Eve fire took a family’s shed and barn and theNew Year’s Day fire destroyedan unoccupied home. Fire-Rescue was dispatched on New Year’s Eve to 1004Louisiana St. in Wauchula for astructure fire at 5:42 p.m. When they arrived on the scene, firefighters saw a smallshed and a pole barn in flames,says the department’s report. Asingle-story house, which waswithin 10 feet of the other struc tures, was not affected by thefire and no one was injured. Two engines switched between fighting the fires and pro tecting the surrounding areas.One of the engines knocked outthe fire with the deck gun andthen cooled down a 500-gallon HARDEE COUNTY FIRE-RESCUE PHOTO An abandoned house on McEwen Road was engulfed in flames o n New Year’s Day. Fire fighters were working under power lines, which can be seen at the top of t he picture, therefore Peace River Electric Cooperative was on scene to secure the power. back with positive results. January to March is the peak season for this illness. The H1N1, also called the swine flu, is especially haz ardous to the most vulnerablepeople. Among these are preg nant women, young children andthe elderly, those over age 65, allof whom are more susceptible tothis year’s virulent strain of theswine flu. There’s a difference in having this flu and perhaps sufferingfrom the common cold. In-fluenza and a cold are bothviruses and cannot be controlledby antibiotics. But, having avaccination for the flu (a flushot) is essential in preventingthe illness and/or lessening itseffects, said DiLealla. The difference is that a person with ILI comes down with theflu more suddenly, with a highfever (101 degrees and higher),body aches, chills and a sorethroat. In that case, it is impor tant to see a medical provider assoon as possible. DiLealla recommends that anyone in the vulnerable popu lation, very young, elderly orpregnant, get a flu shot as soonas possible. They can be ob tained from a local pharmacy ora medical care provider. This especially includes peo ple who are vulnerable becauseof a recent transplant or majorsurgery, who must wait at leastsix weeks after such surgery toget a flu shot. It is most impor tant for such people to consultwith their physician in decidingwhen to get vaccinated. A woman who is pregnant can get the flu shot anytime duringher pregnancy, from the firsttrimester on, explains DiLealla.When someone goes to theirphysician or pre-natal clinic toconfirm pregnancy, a flu shotshould be one of the first thingsconsidered, she says. If a person is exposed to someone who may have the flu,there is a five-to-seven day win dow of opportunity to get the flushot and limit illness and/orbegin treatment within 48 hourswith Tamiflu once daily as a pro phylaxis (preventive) to lessen iteffects. Once a person gets the flu, the primary treatment is with Tami flu twice daily. People who doget the Tamiflu get over the ill ness 24 to 46 percent faster, saidDiLealla. Tamiflu can only beobtained by prescription fromone’s medical provider, shenoted. The best way to combat spread of the flu is prevention,stresses DeLealla. Hand wash ing frequently is essential. Covera cough in your elbow, not witha handkerchief or tissue; theycarry the germs, she says. Avoidtouching eyes, nose or mouth,another way germs can bespread. Anyone with a fever, who may be coming down with theflu, should stay home for at least24 hours after the fever is gone.This means the fever is gonewithout using a fever-reducingmedicine, which may only tem porarily lower the temperature. And, wash your hands often, with soap and water. In betweentimes, use an alcohol-basedhand rub. atures were expected to climb tothe 40s. It was 43 degrees inWauchula by 8 a.m. Wednes-day. Residents are urged to be careful in staying indoors andusing safe heating sources. Spe cial care needs to be taken withspace heaters and candles,which must be kept away fromdraperies and flammable furni ture. While outdoors, people need to stay dry and in wind-pro tected areas as much as possible,stay hydrated with non-alcoholicbeverages and wear multiplelayers of loose-fitting warmclothing. Pets should be broughtinside at night. The weather is expected to re verse itself and produce 70and80-degree weather by the week end. He will recommend the site plan be amended so the roadgoing through the park will nolonger empty out the back of theproperty onto Old Brad-entonRoad, but will instead loop backthrough the park and out to theentrance on State Road 62. Doing so, he said, should al leviate any concerns over in creased traffic from neighboringresidents. He plans to ask the County Commission to override thePlanning & Zoning Board rec ommendation and approve theproposal. If approved, the expansion would have 20 lots ranging insize from four to 11 acres. Lambert said it would take 12-18 months to have the roadbuilt, retention ponds dug andadditional site work completedbefore the expansion would beready for a tenant. and came to a final rest in thenorthbound lanes, facing east.Wedemeier slid for about 25 feetin the southbound lanes, theFHP said.

Bowling Green During 2013, the county’s northern community was mainlyinvolved in planning and goalsetting to begin growth and de velopment in the coming year. With the help of a $425,000 Economic Development Au-thority grant, the city was able tocomplete a three-quarter milewater main to serve the planned20-acre commerce park andcompleted design of the park. A grant from Mosaic enabled completion of plans for the con struction of Main Street Park ona vacant downtown city lot. Office improvements, includ ing updating the city’s website,implementing on-line bill pay ment and accepting credit cardpayments, provided better cus tomer service For 2014, the city will con tinue the plans begun last year.Phase I of the Centanino Com-merce Park will become a real ity. $626,000 from EDA willenable the city to complete bothphase I and II. A grant/loan from the state Department of EnvironmentalProtection will provide for com pletion of a $1.8 million waste water treatment plant and sewersystem renovation project to getunder way. Construction of the Main Street Park will be done if thecity receives a grant from theFlorida Recreation Develop-ment Assistance Program(FRDAP). The city plans to start a Com munity Redevelopment Agency(CRA) to set aside a portion ofcity and county taxes for devel opment along the U.S. 17 com mercial corridor. And, the city plans for a re view and update of its land de velopment code. Zolfo Springs The last year has been a busy one for the county’s southerncommunity. A utility project onU.S. 17 South to Seventh Streetwas completed in preparationfor the four-laning projectthrough town. Along with that,there was a grant to help with vi sioning for the effects of thechanges occurring in the townby the four-laning. Grants helped completion of the wastewater project and startof the second phase on new headworks and effluent filters. Thetown also upgraded the waterplant, dug a new well, repairedseveral storm drains and re placed culverts. There also werenew sidewalks in-stalled on SR66 and School-house road, andat Fifth Avenue and SuwanneeStreet. The town added a sewage sys tem truck and new mover to itsfleet and began plans to hold acommunity fish fry for the eld erly since the first was so suc cessful. There was alsoapplication for recreation grantsto upgrade the Carmen Vasquezand city parks. The town expects to continue its projects in 2014, and willschedule an Open House for thefinal phase of the Wastewaterproject. It will purchase twotrucks for the utility department.It will apply for grants/ loans forimprovements to City Hall/CivicCenter, a pole barn for mainte nance supplies and equipment atthe wastewater plant and a finalone to help purchase a new trac tor and utility truck.

Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg $! 9" Well, we have finally made it to the biggest kids competing, the Seniors Division for the Hardee Youth Rodeo Finals and banquetheld in May. And from Hardee County, that includes Hailey Andrews, Loni Damboise and Lacey Cumbee for the cowgirls, and Seth McGee andcousins Pat Carlton, Jake Bolin and Justin Keen for the cowboys,along with bull riders (and brothers) Richard and Robert Faulkner. In the barrel-racing event, the winner’s buckle went to Hailey Andrews, with Lacey Cumbee coming in second place. Hailey re ceived a second buckle for first place in the pole-bending event (thisis her event, having gone to the national finals for high school rodeoin it). The goat-tying event includes both boys and girls, with Jake Bolin in second place, Loni Damboise in third, Pat Carlton in fourth,and Hailey Andrews in fifth place. I always look forward to theamazing dismounts of Jake and Pat, all the time wondering how theyland on their feet! Breakaway roping showed Jake taking home the winner’s buckle, Pat in third place, and Loni in fourth place. Pat took thirdplace and Hailey took fifth place in the team-roping headers, andLoni took third place in the team-roping heelers (remember that jun ior Dawson Cantu beat out all of them for the winner’s buckles inboth heading and heeling!). The all-cowboy events are tie-down roping (also known as calf roping) and chute doggin’. The tie-down roping saw Pat Carltontake second place, followed closely by Jake Bolin i n third place and Seth McGee in fourth place. This event took Pat all the way toWyoming this past summer in the national finals for high schoolrodeo. The Senior chute doggers were the top four placements, starting with Pat Carlton taking home the winner’s buckle, then Jake Bolinin second, Justin Keen in third (this is his only event), and SethMcGee in fourth place. Brothers Richard and Robert Faulkner of Bowling Green are bull riders, but they didn’t give their actual placements. They arestill bullriding this year in youth rodeos, as well as at Reality Ranchrodeos and other bullriding events. Congratulations to y’all for a fine season! Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Greggin on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459.

8A The Herald-Advocate, January 9, 2014 Buzzards Bother Bear At Pioneer Park PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs has a nice wildlife refuge, which is o pen to the public five days a week. There are many animals there, includi ng deer, racoons, an ostrich, a tortoise, a panther and alligators. There are many unwanted guests (buzzards ) that fly into the refuge and stay for hours. Daryl Hall of Wauchula recently noticed buzzards were in the bear pen and some were “pecking” George. This is more an aggravatio n than causing injury. He contacted The Herald-Advocate. A follow-up vi sit confirmed the buzzards aggra vating the bear. A large net over the entire bear pen would keep the buzzards away. Many buzzards roost in trees along Peace River in Zolfo Spri ngs. Sometimes there are two or three hundred buzzards in the Zolfo area. A few dozen want to hang out during the day at the animal refuge. Buzzards are a protected species of birds and do a fine job of eating dead animals. Many animals are killed on roads by vehicles. The bear is big enough to defend itself against the buzzards, but repeated pecking during the day annoy George. There are places in the pen that the bear can escape the buzzards. Water is sometimes sprayed on the buzzards to chase them away for awhile. Attention: Hardee County Disposal Customers: Due to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, Monday, January 20th, there will be no service on this day. Make up day will be on Thursday, January 23rd. All other days/routes for this week will remain the same. REMINDER TO ALL CUSTOMERS: For the safety of our helpers please be aware that cans over 32 gallons must have bagged garbage so that all waste can be properly removed from cans. 1:9,16c _______________________________ IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA CIVIL DIVISION CASE NO. 25 2013 CA 000295 GENERATION MORTGAGE COM-PANY, Plaintiff(s), vs.ALBERTO M GONZALEZ, et al.

Way Back When Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!There were probably lots of sad people Monday morningwhen the Christmas break wasover and students and teachershad to return to school. When Iwas growing up, most every body loved school and was gladto get back. That was in the dayswhen no one had land-line tele phones, much less a cell phone,and you did not get to see yourfriends except at church or inschool. Our pastor Brother Steve and Tara have returned from a visitto Michigan to visit their daugh ter and family. While thereBrother Steve said they ice-fished one day but did not evenget a bite. They had a great timeand it was cold but they left justin time to be able to fly homewith no cancellations. Our coun try to the north is in serious trou ble as we are forecast to havebad weather also. Everyoneneeds to pray for their neighbor. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of JuanitaTindell. I did not know about ituntil the paper came out. Juanitaworked for Davis & Roberts andI worked at First Federal a longtime ago. She told me about avacation she and her husbandtook and it was the best one ever.They rented a houseboat nearLeesburg and sailed the St.Johns River for a week. She painted such glorious pic tures that Kay and I rented ahouseboat. It was the worst va-cation I had ever had! Therewere alligators constantly be-side the boat and the first night Iwas awake every hour and heardthe time announced on the radio.Juanita never could understandme not enjoying that trip! I hadnot seen her in a long time butconsidered her a friend. Our sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Darlene Davis. I knew Darlene and herchildren from 4-H. It was reported in church Sun day that Angie Warnock re ceived a bad report from thedoctor. Betty Waters enjoys at tending functions when able.Betty and Clint Walker have notbeen able to come to church forsome time. Jimmy Fields is an ticipating gall bladder surgerywhen the doctors determine he isable to have surgery. Pleasepray for all of these and othersyou might know about. Our sincere sympathy is also extended to Nancy McQuaigand family in the death of heruncle in West Virginia. Louise Durrance had a won derful 90th birthday celebrationlast Sunday. The MethodistChurch Fellowship Hall wasfull, and Louise enjoyed visitingwith each person as they stoppedby her chair. Her son, Danny,said his mother had worked hardin the field right along with hisdad and then came and cookedand washed clothes. Just all thethings the “Mama” always doesor at least always did in theolden days! Simple Faith Quartet sang at Fort Green last Sunday nightand did a terrific job. They area great quartet. Gulf State Quar tet singers sang one song withthem, and I learned how to spellD’Gee’s name. She is thegrandmother for the new babyRipp. Unless you read lastweek’s news you won’t knowwhat this is about and can justignore it! John Alexander has been vis iting his son and family for acouple of weeks. He is alwaysfaithful to attend church when inour area, even if his relatives areunable to attend. Please pray for one another and our nation. PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY Adeline Hudson, who lives at Sally Place and David Courtin Wauchula, put up a lot of Christmas decorations at herhome this year.

You sleep a little, you take a nap. You fold your hands and lie down to rest. So you will be as poor as if you had been robbed; you will have as little as if you had been held up.Proverbs 6:9-11 (NCV)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y Give everyone his legitimate due, whether it be taxes or reverence or respect. Keep out of debt altogether, except that perpetual debt of love which we owe one an other.Romans 13:7-8 (PME)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y A good reputation is more valuable than the most expensive perfume. Fin-ish ing is better than starting! Patience is better than pride. Dont be quick-tempered; that is being a fool. Ecclesiastes 7:1,8 (TLB)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y Then Peter came up and asked Him, Lord, how often am I to forgive my brother, if he goes on wronging me? As many as seven times? Jesus replied, I do not say seven times; I say seventy times seven.Matthew 21:21 (NEB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y If you, Lord, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand? But with You there is forgiveness; therefore, You are to be feared (respected, honored).Psalm 130:3-4 (NIV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Then Jesus told him, You believe because you have seen Me. Blessed are those who havent seen Me, but believe anyway.John 20:29 (NLT)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y It is Gods Spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty One, that gives him understanding.

We're no longer a cou ple, but Baxter is still with me, and he insists on jumping onto the table and begging food. How can I break him of this habit? Janine in Reno, Nev. DEAR JANINE: It can be tough to break a bad habit in a cat, especially one that was al lowed to persist for so long. You may never be able to completely train Baxter to stay off the table or to not beg for food, but you can discourage such behavior. Don't feel guilty about doing it, either. Baxter likely will yowl pitifully at you as you eat dinner without him. But don't allow him on the table at all. How do you do that? Easy. When Baxter moves to jump onto the table, either hiss at him or shake something at him that will frighten him slightly. Many owners use a can of pennies, which rattles loudly when shaken. Others simply wave a rolled-up newspaper at their cat, and that's enough to make their pet stop the aberrant behavior. Repeat this hiss or penny-can shake each and every time he tries to climb onto the table. And, whenever Baxter stays down through the whole meal, or im mediately after you finish eating, shower him with praise. To make this even easier, try feeding Baxter shortly before your dinnertime. If you're unable to do that, insist that he stays off the table and doesn't get away with that behavior either with you or with guests.

Q: Years ago I laid down a brick walkway in my backyard using old building bricks. Lately I noticed that the bricks have become uneven. Some are crooked, but in other areas the bricks are sinking slightly, creating dips in the walkway. What's going on? Can I fix this problem? Chet B., Ocala, Fla. A: Walkways built with bricks (also known as pavers) can be come uneven over time due to normal ground movement or a shift in the sand base on which such walkways are typically built. This leads to the problems you've described, with bricks that are out of alignment and a few depressed areas in the walkway. If the uneven bricks don't pres ent a safety problem, consider delaying a repair on these sections. You can try to move the bricks back into alignment, but that might not work without undertaking more time-consuming or costly repairs. The depressed bricks can be lifted back into place by repair ing the base underneath them. Use a pry bar or other lever to carefully lift up a sunken brick. Then, using one end of a sturdy piece of wood such as a two by four, tamp the existing sand down into place. Put the brick back into the tamped-down section, tapping with a mallet if it doesn't go in. Measure the different in height between the sunken brick and the surrounding bricks. Remove the sunken brink and fill the section with sand (that has rocks and larger particles screened out of it) up to the height of the measurement you took. Tamp down the new sand and remeasure the height, adding sand if necessary to bring the brick level. Once the brick is in place and flush with the surrounding bricks, pour sand over and around the repaired brick so that it fills the crevices. Use a broom to sweep sand from the top of the bricks and into the crevices. HOME TIP: Pull or treat weeds that spring up between paving bricks as soon as possible, before their roots have time to spread. This helps keep a brick walkway even over time.

His business name is Dr. Rigor-Mor tis. Write down the word museum. Then take off the m, and it will spell u-se-um. That says it all, dont it? Should a man-size hole exist in downtown Wauchula, FL, and it extends thousands of miles coming out at the bottom of Mother Earth and also there is a ladder coming out. You get on the ladder going through Mother Earth. Finally some months later you come out at the bottom, leave the hole and ladder. But unfortunately when you have completed your journey, you will find yourself coming out down there upside down on the ladder. Think about it. Years ago I was looking for myself a young, nice and polite girl, like say Bonnie Parker, the one who was going steady with Clyde Barrow. Oh, you remember them, dont you? Bonnie and Clyde. Why, they even made a movie about them. This is a true story. For years I had heard that Spook Hill in Lake Wales was an optical illusion, like when you are driving down hill you are really driving uphill and vice versa. Well, one day a buddy and me returned to Spook Hill, and I took along a big level. According to its reading, then Spook Hill without a doubt is an optical illusion, and let this be the final chapter on the subject. I heard that last night they had a ladies night out at a bar just outside of Avon Park, but they had to close early because none of them qualified. Listen to me young men. This great love you say that you have for your beloved sweetheart and the romantic kindness you lay at her doorsteps can be better claimed not by you but her, and how she sees it from her purview. When I think back to ancient times when some pharaoh sitting there on the throne of might power, head of 20,000 ironclad soldiers, and by the tilt of his thumb could have one murdered at the guillo tine, but with all his power, still and yet never had the delight of even one ice cold Coca-Cola. Without any doubt whatsoever, I would be a world-renowned psychiatrist if I could just remember those big stupid words they use. I sat down with my little Sugar Possum last night, and we had a big summit. I told her we should make things work from now on in, because the one problem we have, and its a small one at that, is that I love her and she dont love me. My cousin, the one that we call Slant, was recently in a bad car wreck. He lost three toes and his job. He was an accountant. Truman A. Thomas, 77, is an Avon Park resident with many friends and associates in Hardee County. He is the father of Sherry White of Wauchula, and is a retired salesman and former radio disc jockey whose morning show topped the Nielsen Ratings.

Q: I have a question about the actor who played JaredLeto's father in "Dallas BuyersClub," which I saw over theholidays. He looks so familiar,but I can't quite place him. —Kyra T., via email A: You're thinking of character actor James DuMont, who's beenon tons of TV shows like "Amer ican Horror Story," "Treme,""Nashville" and "Bonnie andClyde," and on the big screen in"The Butler," "Ocean's Thir teen," "War of the Worlds" and"Along Came Polly," to namejust a few. James was thrilled to be in "Dallas Buyers Club," whichcenters on Ron Woodroof(played by Matthew Mc Conaughey), who works aroundthe system tohelp AIDSpatients getthe medica tion theyneed after heis diagnosedwith the dis ease. Jamesplays the es tranged father of Jared Leto'scharacter, Rayon, who's trans gender and HIV positive. When I recently spoke with James, he told me about workingwith Jared: "It's a really powerfulscene we share. Jared does pow erful work in this; as soon as wefinished our scene, I tweeted thatJared would get an Oscar nomi nation for this role. And heseems to be the frontrunner atthis point. I've worked withOscar winners, and I can see andidentify Oscar-caliber work. I gettweets and emails from all overthe world where people tell methat our scene is so powerful,poignant and heartbreaking. It'snice to have a little breakout scene like this after doing somany projects. It's tough for acharacter actor." Q: This past summer I got involved with a series called"Mistresses." Can you tell meif it's going to return, or was itjust something they put on forthe summer? —Liz R., via email A: ABC has renewed "Mis tresses" for a 13-episode secondseason, which is scheduled to airin summer 2014.

I truly hope this is not so.Can you please find out its sta tus? —Diane, via email A: The A&E network decided this past fall to cancel "TheGlades" after four seasons. Thepolice procedural broke recordsfor A&E when it debuted, butslowly and steadily it lost morethan one-third of its viewersthroughout the series run, so thenetwork canceled it. READERS: I told you I'd let you know when I had an exactdate for the season two premiereof "Vikings," and I'm a womanof my word.

12B The Herald-Advocate, January 9, 2014 1:9c www.healthybladder.net W W a a l l k k Y Y o o u u r r W W a a y y t t o o B B e e t t t t e e r r H H e e a a l l t t h h Ancient Greek physician Hip pocrates (known as the father ofWestern medicine) once said,"Walking is man's best medi cine." What a relatively simpleand inexpensive pill to take tomake such a big impact on main taining and improving yourhealth. The inspiration for my re newed interest in walking isSheri Simson, aka "The PoleLady." Pole walking is an exer cise where you walk with twopoles that look like ski poles. It'sa low-impact exercise that notonly makes walking more bene ficial, it actually takes less effortand is easier on the body. I havejoint pain, so walking is justabout the only exercise that I caneffectively do. Walking withSimson's Keenfit Walking Polesboosts the benefits of my exer cise. It basically turns a simple walk around the block into anaerobic total body workout. Pole walking is a rhythmic, energizing form of exercise thatuses a specially designed pair ofwalking poles that helps you(with less effort) use your entirebody rather than just your lowerbody. It's like skiing without theskis or the snow. I like to call it"Texas skiing"! Pole walking originated from the sport of cross-country skiing.It's believed to have startedaround the 1930s, when thecross-country ski coaches of Fin land were struggling to keeptheir athletes in peak form duringthe offseason. It soon becamepopular with non-athletes oncethey discovered the total-bodybenefits and the overall fun ofpole walking, and it spreadthroughout Northern Europe.Pole walking, also known asNordic walking, has only re cently been seen here in North America — but it is here to stay! You use less than 50 percent ofyour major muscles when walk ing without poles. Walking withfitness poles, you use more than90 percent of your major mus cles. The poles help to spreadyour weight out, lessening theload when your feet hit theground by 26 percent. Thismakes a big difference for peoplelike me who have back, hip,knee, ankle or foot problems.Walking with poles also natu rally aligns your spine andstrengthens your core with eachstep — helping you to stand andsit taller. I usually lose a pound aday when I walk using the Keen fit Walking Poles. You don't have to walk as far or work as hard. Walking poleshelp to increase your cardio by20 percent and your calorie burnby up to 48 percent without anyextra effort. And 30 minutes ofpole walking is equal to 50 min utes of regular walking. It's oneof the most beneficial and re warding activities that you'll everdo. Studies on walking and health have determined that patientswith knee arthritis who walkedthree times a week "reduced theirrates of pain and disability by 47percent." Patients at high risk fordiabetes who walked and madeother healthy lifestyle changesreduced their risk by 58 percent.Walking has been shown to re duce anxiety, and it is the No. 1treatment for improving sleep. Before starting your walk, try drinking a caffeinated drink. Arecent study found that not onlycan caffeine wake you up — itcan also boost your reactive abil ity (the ability to change direc tion quickly). According toWomen's Health, just one cupcan often make a difference inyour quickness/alertness — somaybe you should meet friendsfor coffee before your pole walkrather than after.

It pro vides caffeine, antioxidants, a lit tle boost of calcium and protein.The new year brings a new op portunity to take charge of yourhealth. Happy pole walking!

(c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc., and Angela Shelf Medearis DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you please do a column onshingles? I have gone through12 weeks of the nastiest, worstillness possible. I never hearanything on TV about it. —J.C. ANSWER: I'll have another go at shingles. Others probablythink I overdo it. But it's such acommon problem of older peo ple that it deserves repetition. Shingles is the work of the reawakened chickenpox virusthat has been asleep in nervecells ever since a person was in fected, usually in childhood. It'sa safe bet to say you were in fected even if you don't recall it;more than 95 percent of adultswere. The rash of shingles usually disappears in two to four weeks.Pain, however, can stay withyou. The pain is now called pos therpetic neuralgia. In makingthe trip to the skin, the virusdamaged the nerve roots that itcrawled down to reach the skin.Pain is a consequence of thenerve injury. A large number of treatments exist for this aftermath of shin gles. One is amitriptyline, whoseprimary use is relief of depres sion. It also has pain-relievingproperties in doses lower thanwhat's given for depression.Neurontin (gabapentin) is aseizure-control medicine thatoften is successful in suppressing pain.

COMPARING HOSPITAL INFECTION RATES The Medicare Hospital Compare website now provides in formation about hospital safety into two areas that are especially important to seniors: prevention of Clostridium difficile infec tions and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) bloodstream infections. It gath ered this information through the National Healthcare Safety Network at the Centers for Dis ease Control and Prevention. C. diff, as it's called, can be life-threatening, as it causes severe diarrhea, which causes dehydration. It can develop after taking a course of antibiotics or being in a hospital. The spores that cause the illness can stay on surfaces bed railings, coun ters, telephones for months. According to the Mayo Clinic, more than a half million people get C. diff every year, and it's very difficult to treat. Seniors age 65 and older are 10 times more susceptible to C. diff. MRSA isn't a walk in the park either. It's a staph infection that resists the antibiotics usually used to treat it. The infection can spread all over the body. It's usu ally seen in people who have been in hospitals or health-care settings, or who have had invasive procedures. In other words, both of these illnesses are serious and poten tially life-threatening. If you have your choice of hospitals for a procedure, don't you want the one that's more likely to keep you safe from in fections? Go to the Hospital Compare site (www.medicare.gov/hospi talcompare) and enter your ZIP code. You can click up to three hospitals to compare. Click Compare Now and then click Readmissions, Complications and Death. Click Healthcare As sociated Infections.
