The new rule became an offi cial districtwide mandate duringthe latest School Board meetingwith the final adoption of theComprehensive Tobacco-FreePolicy. The policy took full ef fect on Jan. 1. The policy applies to stu dents, employees, volunteers,parents, spectators and visitors. It says that no one is allowed at any time to use any sort of to bacco product in a building, fa cility or vehicle which is owned,leased or rented by the schooldistrict. This means the policy isin effect 24 hours a day, sevendays a week, 365 days a year. It includes chartered grounds and property, such as schoolbuildings, district offices, ath letic fields, practice fields, play grounds, parking lots,administrative offices and main tenance or transportation areas. Or, in short, no more smoke breaks on school-related grounds. Further, no more chewing to bacco while watching a Wildcatfootball game. Specifically, the rule also ap plies to people who attend anyonor off-campus school-relatedevent, such as sporting competi tions, day camps, field trips,seminars, dances or theatricalproductions. Some of the tobacco products no one is allowed to use onschool grounds include ciga rettes, cigars, pipes, hookah,chewing tobacco and more.However, these aren’t the onlythings on the list. Electronic cigarettes (e-ciga rettes), or any other productname, are also not allowed. Thepolicy defines these as “any oraldevice that provides a vapor ofliquid nicotine, lobelia, and/orother substance and the use ofinhalation of which simulatessmoking.” The board began looking into implementing this type of policyafter Patty Saunders and ErikCastanon of the Hardee CountyHealth Department showed upat a board meeting

There is something for everyone at the fair. ——— The price of regular gasoline in Hardee County this week was $3.29 a gallon. ——— Hardee County ASAPP says tobacco causes about 430,000 deaths annually in the U.S., including 28,600 deaths in Floridawhich is slightly more than Hardee County’s population. Tobaccoproducts and smoke contain over 7,000 chemicals, including 100that can cause cancer. One man in Hardee County said Monday he has cut his daily cigarette habit from 20 down to 10 (a half pack). ——— The shooting death in a Wesley Chapel movie theatre Monday was tragic and could have been avoided. A man was texting hisyoung daughter during the previews, upsetting the man behind him.An argument escalated. The 43-year-old man with the cellphonethrew popcorn on the 71-year-old retired Tampa police officer, whohad a gun. The younger man’s wife put her hand over her husband’schest. A shot was fired, going through her hand and into her hus band’s chest. A planned fun night at the movies resulted in tragedy,according to an Associated Press report. I wish one of the two men, or both of them, had heeded Proverbs 15:1 — A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievouswords stir up anger.” The Bible contains a lot of good advice on liv ing life. The Bible says we humans have a sinful nature and teacheshow to have a good life here on earth and beyond. ——— Deer can be dangerous. The Lakeland Ledger reported Jan. 14 a deer named Vinny at a wildlife sanctuary near Spring Hill goredthe sanctuary’s owner’s sister, 75, causing the removal of her righteye. As a young girl my mother lost an eye because a boy threw a rock. ——— Someone once said reading a daily newspaper is a poor man’s college education. There is some truth to that. ——— Hardee County is home to at least four types of Big Birds — wild turkeys, sandhill cranes,buzzards and great blue herons.This is a recent photo of a pairof sandhill cranes in BowlingGreen just south of the elemen tary school. ——— Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) is fighting his 162-game sus pension for alleged use of per formance enhancing drugs.The suspension for the 2014Major League Season will costthe New York Yankee playerabout $22 million if it stands.He would still get about $3million. The 39-year-old slug ger is getting toward the end ofa 10-year $250 million contract. Different people have differentchallenges in life. ——— Environmental writer Tom Palmer of the Lakeland Ledger says Florida’s growing population (currently 19.5 million and perhapssoon to pass New York as the nation’s third most populated state be hind California and Texas) puts a potential strain on our ecosystem.Historically there is constant friction between developers and envi ronmentalists over land habitat and water supply and quality. ——— U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney announced this week he has helped se cure another $20 million in federal funding to fight the citrus green ing disease. Florida’s current orange crop is estimated at 115 million boxes, the smallest crop since the 1989-90 season of 110 million boxeswhich followed a big freeze. Florida in the 2003-04 season produced242 million boxes of oranges. Oranges are smaller this year, taking 286 on average to fill a 90-pound box compared with 220-230 historically, reports theLedger’s Kevin Bouffard. It my take 243 valencia oranges per boxthis year, compared with 200 usually. Premature fruit drop has beena problem this year and last year. A smaller crop means higher prices for oranges, with one esti mate of $1.80 a pound solids for early and mid-season oranges.Caretaking costs have risen to about $2,000 an acre. Orange juiceconsumption has continued to decline, however orange juice re mains the nation’s No. 1 juice, at about 3.1 gallons per person an nually. Apple juice is second at 1.7 gallons, followed by grape juiceand cranberry juice. Years ago Americans drank an average of fivegallons of OJ a year. ——— American men live to an average of 75 years and women 80 years, reports Nancy Churnin of the Dallas Morning News. Men in Australia and Japan live to 79 on average, Japanese women live an average of 86 years and in Italy and France, 84 years,according to a 2006 report of the National Academy of Sciences. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Ameri can men and women, claiming about 25 percent of the deaths. Churnin writes to increase odds of living longer, people should exercise, eat right, not smoke, get screened, and enjoy life. HarvardSchool of Public Health says a healthy food plate is one-half fruitsand vegetables, one-quarter whole grains, and one-quarter healthyproteins such as fish, poultry, beans and nuts. I say to add some goodred beef. ——— Franklin McCain Sr. and three fellow college students on Feb. 1, 1960, sat down at a whites-only lunch counter at the F.W. Wool worth store in Greensboro, N.C., and asked for coffee. This startedlunch counter sit-ins in cities across the country, wrote Steve Lyttleand David Perlmutt of the Charlotte Observer. The Woolworth storeintegrated the lunch counter July 25, 1960. McCain died earlier this month at age 71. His parents and grandparents taught that children had a good chance of success inlife if they followed the Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution and the 10Commandments, plus working hard and helping others. McCaingraduated from North Carolina A & T with degrees in chemistry andbiology and worked about 35 years as a chemist and sales represen tative for the Celanese Corporation in Charlotte and remained activein civil rights efforts. As an elderly white woman left the lunch counter at the Wool worth store on Feb. 1, 1960, she put her hands on the shoulder ofMcCain and another student, saying “Boys, I am so proud of you. Ionly wish you’d done this 10 years ago.” ——— O.J. Simpson, 66, is in the fifth year of a 9-to-33 year prison sentence after a jury found him guilty of various charges in a con frontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel in 2007. His lawyers plan to appeal his sentence to the NevadaSupreme Court. Simpson claims he did not get a fair trial due to his fame fol lowing his 1995 acquittal in Los Angeles of charges he murderedhis ex-wife and her male friend, reports the Associated Press. Fiveco-defendants in the 2007 case have served prison time and are free,while Simpson remains in prison. I always felt O.J. Simpson, a Heisman Trophy-winning running back at the University of Southern California and a great runner forthe NFL Buffalo Bills, if he had not gotten into trouble could havebeen a natural spokesman for selling orange juice, given his initials.He later became an actor and spokesman for a rental car company. ——— Marisa Kendall of the Associated Press recently reported 59 percent of Floridians who died in 2011 were cremated, a growingtrend. In 2012 74 percent of Lee and 73 percent of Collier Countyresidents who died were cremated. The Cremation Association reports a typical cremation costs $2,250 compared with $8,350 for an average burial. Several years ago I saw a family bring ashes of their father to spread along Fisheating Creek, where he had his happiest times ofhunting, fishing and camping.

A considerably smaller smoke plume can be seen in the background. State Road 62 was clo sed until midnight, then one lane was opened while cleanup took place. sed interest, in varying degrees,in increasing security proce dures at meetings, citing poten tial concerns of a citizenbringing a gun or other type ofweapon into the room. Weapons are currently pro hibited from being brought intoa meeting. Ideas ranged from installing metal detectors as citizens enterthe room to bullet-proofing partof the dais. Commissioner Sue Birge made a motion to have Albrit-ton gather information onadding a portable metal detectorthat could be set up at the en trance of the board room, andbring it back to the commissionfor its further consideration. Her motion was passed unan imously. Albritton said he has spoken individually to some of the com missioners, and they have differ ent ideas or wants when it comesto security. He said a metal detector would not X-ray bags and brief cases, such as the main court house’s security system does, soinstalling a detector may limitcitizens from bringing weaponinto the room. Sheriff Arnold Lanier said adding a metal detector wouldcreate a need for an additionalperson to man the machine dur ing meetings. He said audiencemembers would have to passthrough the device every timethey left the room, such as whencommissioners take a recess. A portable machine is ex pected to cost about $5,000. Commissioner Colon Lam bert said boards in other coun ties have a bulletproof dais andeach commissioner also has abulletproof shield to escape theroom safely. Mike Thompson seemed to be somewhere in the middle ofthe ideas thrown around. “Whenit comes to security I am not ve hemently opposed to it, howeverI am not terribly excited about iteither,” he said.

The IDA board, which has 13 members, voted to allocate$15,000 for the renovation ex penses. County Manager Lex Albritton presented a draft design forcommissioners to review andapprove last Thursday. Planswill extend the existing platformout toward the audience, andwill have ample room to accom modate both boards. Albritton said the work will be performed by county staff,and that he expects work tobegin in about 30 days. He saidthe allocation from the IDAshould pay for all the construc tion costs. A new video and sound sys tem will also be installed. Commissioners also expresCounty Boardroom Getting Makeover cause such an inconvenience tocitizens attending the meetings. People attending the meeting Thursday did not like the ideafor the most part. Horst Witschonke said adding the security measures would re duce the number of citizens at tending the meetings. Pam Bellflower wanted Albritton to research other simi lar counties and find out whatsecurity measures they use be fore making a decision. Frank Kirkland said the best security would be for all citizensand commissioners to carry aweapon during the meetings. Healso reminded commissioners ifsomeone really intended to doharm, he could just wait outsidethe building for the meeting toadjourn. Bob Cole said he did not see a need for the added security.“We live in a non-violent com munity,” he said. “Instead of in conveniencing your citizens youcould wear bulletproof vests andKevlar helmets if you areafraid.” CAPITAL FELONYContinued From 1A $ %&#"*#$& n*((( rectchevy.com L LOYD H ALL "'&% %$"%""#$% &##!%!& 1:16c Charges filed Tuesday by As sistant State Attorney DavidWard include one count of sex ual battery on a child under theage of 12, four counts of lewdmolestation, and one count of escape. The sexual battery of a young child is a capital offense, andshould Cook be found guilty ofthat crime, he faces life in prisonwithout parole. Though a capitalcase, the Supreme Court longago ruled out imposition of thedeath penalty for sexual of fenses. The lewd molestation counts, too, carry a penalty of life inprison. Cook’s next court date before Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle isset for Feb. 18. Meanwhile, the suspect is being held in the Hardee Coun-ty Jail without bond pendingtrial. According to Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriff’sOffice, the allegations againstCook first came to light on Nov.19. A mother reported to author ities that she had just becomeaware of an incident in whichher daughter and the child’sfriend were possibly molested. Dey said because of the young ages of the two girls, they wereinterviewed by the Child Protec tion Team in Bartow on separateoccasions and, when necessary,by using paper drawings. Both reported two instances of the alleged abuse. In the first, each girl described being at a Wauchula house andbeing enticed into the suspect’sbedroom to “play a game” formoney. Once there, Cook al legedly instructed them to pulltheir pants down. He then performed an illicit act, Dey charged. The second incident allegedly occurred behind the church at 1607 Martin Luther King Jr. Av enue. There, Cook ap-proachedthe two children about earningsome money and promisingthem it would only take a coupleminutes of their time. He allegedly repeated the ac tions from the first encounter,but also unzipped his pants andexposed himself, Dey said.Then, the major charged, he en gaged in sexual relations withthe 9-year-old. Once it was over, the girl re ported, Cook gave her $5 andtold her not to tell anyone. Though the children only knew their alleged assailant by anickname, each girl positivelyidentified Cook in a photolineup. Cook was later interviewed by Det. Drake, and stated he“would never hurt a child.” Fur ther, Dey noted, Cook consentedto a polygraph examination,where he was found to be eva sive in his responses. Cook continued to deny the allegations, Dey said, but wasadvised there existed sufficientprobably cause to arrest him. He was permitted to hand his personal belongings over tosomeone who was waiting in thelobby area of the Sheriff’s Of fice, then he walked over to thejail’s entrance door. There, Cook began to enter and then quickly turned and ran,Dey alleged. Drake and nearby officers chased the fleeing suspect, withDrake catching Cook on BayStreet. The charge of escape wasadded when he was ultimatelybooked into the jail.

January 16, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate Four young adults who attacked a business owner, stab bing him and stealing drugs, atChristmastime 2012 have nowbeen sentenced for their crimes. The first, set for jury trial on Dec. 9, instead changed his pleaand was sentenced on Dec. 6.The last was sentenced just lastweek. Christopher Lee Minton, 21, Matthew John George, 23, andKristine Michele George andTabatha Marie Prestridge, both19, had been arrested by sher iff’s authorities on Dec. 26,2012, and charged with variouscounts in the Dec. 21 attack onHenry “Hank” Williams at hismechanic’s shop on U.S. 17 nearState Road 62. Minton, who was said to have wielded the knife, will nowspend the next 14 years inFlorida State Prison. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle adjudicated him guilty of aggra vated battery with a deadlyweapon, and also assessed$1,220 in fines and court costs.Additional charges of attemptedarmed robbery, tampering withphysical evidence and unlawfuluse of a two-way communica tion device were dropped in ex change for the plea to the mostserious count. Once Minton pleaded out and his jury trial was canceled, sen tencing of his co-defendantscommenced. All had been charged with the same four criminal offenses asMinton, and all entered into plea agreements dropping the mostserious count along with twoothers. Only attempted armedrobbery remained. Kristine George’s case came up first, and she was sentencedon Dec. 12. Matthew George was next, on Dec. 17. And Prestridge came last. She was sentenced on Tuesday oflast week. Each of the trio received the same penalty. First, Ezelle ordered each des ignated a violent offender ofspecial concern. Then he im posed seven years of supervisedprobation with drug conditions.He assessed fines and costs ofbetween $1,400 and $1,700 perdefendant. Restitution has been ordered, and none may have any contact with their victim. According to Hardee County Sheriff’s Office reports, theGeorges and Prestridge walkedinto the office of the mechanicsshop and began talking toWilliams. Minton, waiting out side, was tipped off via a cell-phone call and entered the area,coming up behind Williams andhitting him. A scuffle ensued, and that is when Williams was stabbed. Sheriff’s authorities said the young assailants then grabbedsome methamphetamine andfled the scene. Williams was airlifted by medical helicopter to TampaGeneral Hospital, where he wastreated for his injuries and laterreleased. Five days later, the quartet was charged and jailed. Lead Attacker Gets 14 Years Minton M. George K. George Prestridge By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate One man was jailed and an other hospitalized late Saturdaynight after a drunken brawl al legedly ended in a stabbing. According to Maj.

At one point, the witness said, one of the roommates picked upan eightto 10-inch knife fromthe counter and plunged it intothe other roommates’ abdomen.The knife cut into the left side ofthe abdominal area, Dey noted. The suspect, Hipolito Telesfor Vargas, 54, then fled onfoot. The witness described Vargas and his clothing to respondingofficers. Dep.

Authorities allege he fired a bullet at a sheriff’s deputy. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriff’s Officesaid deputies had responded to acall on Wednesday at around4:30 p.m. saying the man wasdespondent, was armed with agun and had continually refusedto come out of his room. He allegedly had threatened harm to himself or anyone who“bothered” him, Dey said. Responding to the East Main Street residence, deputies andSheriff Arnold Lanier made nu merous attempts to get the manto leave his bedroom and comeout of the house. He would not,Dey said. As hours passed, the sheriff’s tactical unit sent tear gas into abedroom window in an attemptto force the armed man from thehouse. One such gas canisterwas followed by a gunshot fromwithin, Dey alleged. The man had fired a round through a window and toward adeputy, breaking the glass butnot striking the officer, Dey said. Further, he charged, the man threatened to kill the deputies oranyone who came into hishouse. Eventually, however, the tear gas forced the man from the res idence. He was taken to Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medi-cal Center in St. Petersburg forevaluation, Dey said, and re mained there as of this Tuesday. No one in the home nor re sponding officers was harmed inthe incident, he said. A search warrant executed after the man was out of thehouse revealed a loaded .40-cal iber Glock handgun in the bed room, along with several otherfirearms. Dey said once the man is re leased from the hospital, chargescould follow. He advised families of the elderly to monitor their behav ior. “It is up to the family whensomeone is displaying erraticbehavior to address it,” he said.“In the least, they should re-move any guns from the home.” Elderly Man In Standoff In Business By Maria Trujillo TRINKETS TO TREASURES — At the new antiques shop on Main Street in Wauchula, many hidden treasures can be found. Heritage Park Antiques & Treasures opened last year at the start of the holiday season. Owner Belva Vance, a Hardee County residentsince 1969, also owns another antiques shop in Plant City. Vance has always loved antiques, and it was because of their love for antiques that Vance and a neighbor decided to sell antiquesout of a small space about 10 years ago. After a while Vance wasleft without a partner and a place to sell the items. It was then thatshe partnered with other antique lovers to open a store and continueselling antiques. Vance gets items from auctions, estate sales, other antique shops, yard sales and travels to other places to find a good antique.In fact, she once traveled all the way to Pennsylvania for new mer chandise. Consignment is also an option at the store. Store merchandise includes chalk-painted furniture, shabby chic and primitive items, glassware, old books, paintings and much more.Some of the oldest pieces for sale are from the 1800s, including adresser and a “bedside potty box.” There are also original tin tiles from the ceiling of the building available if anyone is interested in purchasing them. The Main Streetbuilding used to be a part of a hotel which stood there several yearsago. Some of the artwork for sale has a distinctive look to it. That is because the young woman from Deland who creates the paintingsdoes so by blowing paint through a straw and onto the canvas itself.This young lady also takes stunning photos and makes jewelry thatVance also sells. Vance encourages people to come to the shop to see all of its interesting offerings. She says seeing some of the things makes youthink of earlier days. Vance also urges people who have already vis ited to continue to do so since items are constantly changing, mean ing new things are showing up regularly. She noted, “People come because grandma had it, my mother threw it out and now I’m buying it back.” Heritage Park Antiques & Treasures is located at 210 W. Main St., next to Java Cafe. It is open Monday through Friday from 10a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shoppers andbrowsers alike can “like” the shop’s Facebook page or call Vance at773-0057.New business or management? Remodeling or relocating? CallMaria Trujillo at 773-3255 with your business news. This is only one of the pieces of furniture that can befound in the new antiques shop in town. Owner BelvaVance also sells glassware, artwork, jewelry, old booksand other trinkets that can become someone’s treasure. PHOTOS BY MARIA TRUJILLO Belva Vance stands in front of her new shop, HeritagePark Antiques & Treasures on Main Street in downtownWauchula. in May asking for a smoke-free policy for the district. Castanon gave a synopsis of tobacco use and what the effectsare on young smokers. The board agreed, saying “the use of tobacco products … isdetrimental to the health andsafety of students, employeesand visitors.” School Board members also acknowledged that adult staffand visitors serve as role modelsfor students, and therefore theywanted to promote a tobacco-free district. The new rule states, “The purpose of this policy is to es tablish a school districtwide to bacco-free environment, providenotification to the public and toschool district employees andstudents, provide education andresources to tobacco users, andto provide an explanation of thedisciplinary action that will betaken with those that abuse thispolicy.” The school district will con sult with student services, theHardee County Health Depart-ment, the American Lung Asso ciation and other healthorganizations to provide pro grams for students so they willbetter understand the health haz ards tobacco use can have onthem. Although this policy goes in to effect for all school grounds,it is up to each school’s admin istrators to tell those within theirschools or departments about thepolicy as well as to disciplinethose who break the new rule. Director of Educational Facilities Rob Krahl said signs ad vising everyone of the new rule have been purchased for all lo cations, including schools andancillary facilities. His depart ment began installing the signson Friday. The tobacco-free policy will be assessed and reviewed by theschool district every year to de termine whether enough is beingdone to enforce it. It will be up dated when necessary. To review the full policy, visit the Hardee County schools web site at hardee.k12.fl.us.TOBACCOContinued From 1A EXPLODESContinued From 1A dee County Sheriff's Office,FHP and other agencies to con trol the scene.

Magnolia Manor Pageant Registration Ends Feb. 14 Q: An acquaintance told me recently that I could plant atree on the west side of myhouse to keep my summercooling bills down. Well, I livein a colder northern state, andit just doesn't make sense toplant a tree that would blockthe sun in the winter. Myfriend disagreed. What's yourrecommendation? —Susie in Madison, Wis. A: The great thing about trees is that they have the ability toboth keep your house cool insummer and warmer in winter. InMinnesota, a state study foundthat strategically placed shadetrees can reduce air-conditioningbills by nearly 25 percent, and awindbreak can reduce annualfuel bills by up to 20 percent. How does it work? It all de pends on where you place thetrees. In the northern hemisphere, winter winds generally blow infrom the north or northwest. (Inthe Northeast, we also tend to getthose wonderful winter nor'east ers, but that's another story.)Those cold winds can make itharder to heat your home as they drive in through vents or leakywindowand door frames. Plant a couple of trees on the side of your house from whichthese prevailing winter windsblow (the northwest side or cor ner, most likely), and they'll actas a windbreak. Even deciduoustrees that lose their leaves in thewinter can provide adequate pro tection. To get the best protection from winds while allowing more win ter sunlight to reach your home,choose trees that will growhigher than your home's roofeaves, with sturdy trunks andgood branching. Deciduous treeswill lose their leaves in winter sothat the sunlight can filter in,while perennials (like pines orfirs) offer a green view year-round. You might even want tomix these two types of trees. HOME TIP: Plant protective trees one to two tree lengths(based on the average height towhich the saplings eventuallywill grow) from the house, butno farther.Send your questions to ask@thi sisahammer.com.

4B The Herald-Advocate, January 16, 2014 CRAPPIE ANGLERS HAVING A HAPPY NEW YEAR Welcome to 2014. Black crappie are favorite cool-weather tar gets for freshwater anglers, so join the fun, check your fishing li cense, the list of top sites and tips below and go fishing! What betterway to start off a new year then with some healthy outdoor activity Fish Busters By Bob Wattendorf Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission and a mess of fresh fish? Crappie are among the most popular freshwater fishes in Florida. Their deep body with nearly symmetrical dorsal and analfins and a speckled pattern on the body make them easy to distin guish. Crappie spend much of their time offshore, feeding on small fish. This time of year they will be preparing to spawn and, as thetemperatures reach 62-65 degrees, they move inshore to build nestsin colonies. Nests over gravel or muddy bottoms in d epths of 3-8 feet are fanned by males. Crappie eat crustaceans, insects and small fishes. A bright, 1/16oz. to 1/8-oz. jig or Hal-flies will produce once they are inshore. Ifthey are schooling offshore, drift Missouri minnows or grass shrimpbelow a float, with a No. 4 hook and small split shot. Depth is key,as crappie school at the same level, so experiment until you find theright depth. Crappie (alias speckled perch or papermouth) longer than14 inches or heavier than two pounds qualify for a “Big Catch” angler-recognition certificate. Youth under 16 can participate with an entrylonger than 10 inches or heavier than 1.5 pounds. Easy registration makes people eligible for both Big Catch and Trophy Catch (which rewards anglers for largemouth bass heavierthan eight pounds), as well as a drawing to take place in October2014 for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Visit the websitesat BigCatchFlorida.com or TrophyCatchFlorida.com to find outmore. Looking for the best places to go?Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists compile annual lists of top sites.

Except for his mother inthe forests of Africa, Clyde had not seen nor been with another chim panzee until he arrived at the Center for Great Apes sanctuary twoyears ago. Since then, he has met a few of our female chimpanzee resi dents but seemed fearful and unsure how to act around them. His caregivers put their heads together and tried to come up with the perfect mate for Clyde. They decided on Toddy, a sweetelderly female who, like Clyde, was wild-caught in Africa (and stillhas bullet fragments lodged in her brain from her capture). The caregivers started the introductions out slowly, making sure both chimps were comfortable with the idea. At first, both shared anight house but had separate bedrooms. Gradually, they startedgreeting each other at the cage mesh and touched and watched eachother. Then the big day finally arrived, and the doors were opened so they could finally be in the same room together. What happenednext made all of us at the sanctuary so happy —both Toddy andClyde started to play! Toddy seemed thrilled to finally greet Clyde, and both had “play faces” on. Clyde seemed intent on having her close and would reachout to tickle her and grab her foot to instigate a game of chase (al though with these two elderly chimpanzees, their version of chaseis very slow). They would play then take a break, then resume play ing, then rest. The new couple has been together every day for over two weeks now, and it seems as though their love is blossoming. This is the best part of the work we do at the sanctuary — giving rescued chimpanzees and orangutans a happier, healthier life andcompanionship with their own species. The Center for Great Apes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization,and tax-deductible donations are always welcomed and appreciated. Visit www.CenterforGreatApes.org or call (863) 767-8903 for moreinformation on how you can help these intelligent great apes. COURTESY PHOTOS The two new mates now share fun and food togetherevery day. Toddy was the perfect match for Clyde, sweet and gentle. Clyde reaches out to touch his new, and first-ever, girl friend. Clyde had not been with, nor even seen, another chim panzee for over 40 years. Main Street in Wauchula is rich with history!

Continuing to improve constantly, the Cats battled district rival DeSoto at home on Friday evening, coming up just short on a 61-57 score. They continue with a trio of games this week, with the junior varsity playing at 6 p.m. and the varsity immediately afterward, about 7:30. They went to Frostproof on Monday evening, hosted Lakeland McKeel Academy on Tuesday and travel to Sebring on Friday night for a re turn district encounter. Next weeks games are at home, Tuesday in a 7 p.m. home varsity-only game against Mulberry and Thursday against Lakeland and Friday against Avon Park. The latter two are the usual JV/varsity format. The season winds up with a Jan. 30 visit from Lake Placid for Senior Night activities hon oring seniors Tyler Helms and Steve Metayer. Hardee will play on Jan. 31 against Lake Wales Vanguard in the Mosaic Stinger Shootout. District competition is the Feb. 4,5, and 8. District oppo nents are DeSoto, Sebring and Lemon Bay. District competi tion is an unusual format this year. The top seed will host the number four seed on Feb. 4, the second seed will host the third seed on Feb. 5 and the winners of the first two games will play at the court of the highest seed on Feb. 8. Hardee had only a pair of games last week, both home dis trict encounters. The Cats hosted Sebring last Tuesday, playing an even first quarter before suc cumbing to overall pressure and losing 69-51. Hardee was down 19-16 at the end of the first period and won the second quarter 21-16 to make the game 37-35 at half time, with Hardee taking the ad vantage into the locker room. The Wildcats came out cold in the third quarter and dropped behind, unable to catch up in the fairly even fourth quarter. For Hardee, senior Steve Metayer topped out with 25 points, adding seven rebounds, three steals and a pair of assists. Helms was sidelined with an ankle injury. Junior twins Dustin Smith and Tyler Smith had three and two points respectively, while classmate Jordan Jones had five. Soph Marco DeLeon added a trey. Freshmen Djes Youte, with eight points, and Livenson Metayer, with five points rounded out the scoring. Youte and Jones each grabbed five rebounds. Tyler Smith had a blocked shot, three assists and a pair of steals. Hardees game against DeSoto was one of the most complete the Wildcats have had. DeSoto won the first quarter1310 and broke even with Hardee on a 14-14 second quarter. DeS oto won the third period, but Hardee stormed back for a 17-9 edge in the fourth quarter, coming up just shy in the 61-57 loss. Steve Metayer led all scorers with 28 points, while Youte had 11 and Livenson Metayer 11 to put three Wildcats in double digits. DeLeon and Dustin Smith each had three points and Jones added a deuce. Steve metayer had 12 rebounds, Youte seven, Jordan three and Helms two in limited action. DeLeon, Jones and Youte each had a pair of assists. Head Coach Vance Dickey has had to adjust tactics with changeovers of personnel as some players came out for the team and quit during the season. Were not real deep, but were doing the best we can. They are improving and have gotten better. Fatigue is a problem as we have a half dozen players while other squads are putting 12 to 14 on the floor, said Dickey. The team features a pair of seniors, three juniors, a soph and pair of freshmen. All figure in the season stats in varying ways, some more on rebounds and as sists and others on scoring. The junior varsity is also limited, with three sophs, Danny Sustaitia, Armando VelascoLopez and Ryan Moore and four freshmen, Boone Paris, Jason Nichols, Jesse Santoyo and Angel Cisneros. Boys Hoops Winding DownDEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is a competitive distance runner. He loves Kool-Aid and calcu lates that in a year he drinks 150 pounds of sugar in KoolAid alone. A friend told him if he continues this habit, he might develop diabetes. Can a skinny, athletic person develop diabetes from consuming sugar? S.B. ANSWER: Although "sugar" is half the name of sugar dia betes, sugar doesn't cause dia betes. It's a popular belief that it does, but it doesn't. People with diabetes are careful to watch their sugar intake, and they watch their total carbohydrate in take, but diabetics don't have to eliminate sugar completely from their lives. Careful monitoring of sugar and carbohydrate intake is essential for their control of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes, the kind that requires insulin for control, often has its onset in younger years. It's due to a destruction of the insulin-making cells of the pan creas. The destruction is believed to be the work of the immune system. Sugar has nothing to do with it. Type 1 diabetes accounts for 5 percent to 10 percent of all diabetes cases. Type 2 diabetes, the much more common kind, comes about from a decline in insulin production along with a decline in the effectiveness of insulin. Ninety percent of Type 2 diabetics are overweight, and weight loss helps them control their blood sugar. Physical inactivity also contributes to Type 2 dia betes. So do genes. Again, it's not the sugar intake that produces this common type of diabetes. But moni toring the intake of sugar is important for control of this variety of diabetes. The booklet on diabetes presents this illness and its treat ments in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue No. 402W, Box 536475, Or lando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I think I may have the illness where a person pulls out clumps of hair. I'm not sure of the name. I find I do this after I have caffeine. I have been off caffeine for 25 years, and I do not pull my hair out. I thought this might be helpful to others. K.H. ANSWER: The name of the condition is trichotillomania (TRICK-oh-TILL-uh-MAYknee-uh). Between 4 million and 11 million Americans have it. It's called an impulse disorder. I had n't heard about a caffeine con nection. If this holds true for others, they will deeply appreciate your advice. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You recently wrote that Ex cedrin with caffeine en hances pain relief. I believe that often the cause of headaches is withdrawal from caf feine. Another inference of this fact is to wean oneself from caffeine when trying to kick the habit. B.B. ANSWER: You're right. One of the withdrawal symptoms from going cold turkey off some what-heavy caffeine consump tion is headache, particularly migraine headache. I'm right. Caffeine is a mild painkiller that increases the painkilling capacities of other analgesics when incorporated into the same tablet as those analgesics.

Itdoesn't involve getting more ex ercise or eating certain foods. Itdoesn't include doing puzzles.We only need to grab a book andstart flipping pages. Emory University did a study that showed how there are"quantifiable changes" in brainactivity when participants read abook. Granted it was a bit moreregimented than just grabbingyour favorite author's latest best seller. In the study, participants were given a baseline brain scan eachday for a few days. Then theywere given the thriller "Pom peii" by Robert Harris with in structions to read 30 pages anight. Each morning they weregiven another brain scan. Afterthe book was finished (aboutnine days), they were givenmore scans to see how the brainreacted. Re-searchers were ableto track which portions of thebook the participants were read ing and correlate them to thebrain scan images. Here's what they learned: During reading, and for days af terward, there were significantactivity increases in the parts ofthe brain associated with storycomprehension, as well as pro cessing language. According to the study, the reading has to be fiction to getthese brain connectivitychanges, something with a nar rative that describes events un folding, a story we can identifywith. Here's my thinking: While re searchers don't know yet howlong these brain changes lastafter reading a novel, it's at leastfive days. Perhaps we shouldspend some time in 2014 re-reading the novels that had animpact on us, as well as newnarrative fiction and a few of theold classics. The reference li brarian is sure to be a goodsource for book suggestions.Matilda Charles regrets that shecannot personally answerreader questions, but will incor porate them into her columnwhenever possible.

I am never to forget the night that I married Dumpling. We were so in love that night. You could feel it in theair, for a while anyway. However, I had borrowed a forklift to gether over the threshold. When I got on the forklift and revved up theold engine, hee-hee-hee was all Dumpling could say. She does thatwhen she is having a good time, you know. After trying three times, and having to put Dumpling back on after she had rolled off the forklift, well finally I completed the mis sion. But unfortunately I had bent one of the forks when Tee-Heehad rolled off of it and bent the axle when I rolled over her twice.But now we knew that we would not be able to travel up to HainesCity the next morning, because of the repair bills on the forklift. Ihated that because Dumpling had really wanted to go up there be cause she had never been that far North before. But she was a good sport about it though. She slept all day and night and part of the next day. When she finally woke up some 36hours later, she asked me to serve her breakfast in bed. ——— These two elderly gentlemen are found talking in the nursing home, perhaps tossing a small dab of gossip while they were at it.When one says, yes, Jim, there is no doubt about it. We know aswell as everybody else knows, that Emily truly was in love withBrad and Brad loved her, too. But dog-gone it, she broke up withBrad and married Hollis because he had a far better hospital insur ance policy than Brad. Now ain’t that something. ——— Do you remember that blockbuster movie that came out in the 1940s entitled “The Thin Man.” However, they just released tomovie-goers a few days ago how much money the Thin Man hadon him all through this film production and the amount was — hedid not have one thin dime on him. ——— Have you ever heard of a woman who was hired to be a hit man, I mean a hit woman? And while we are at it, have you ever heard ofa woman pallbearer? ——— The spice in life which keeps it so interesting are those unex pected moments, be them good or bad. ——— My pal, the one we call Murph for Murphy’s Law, you know anything that can go wrong does go wrong. Well anyway, he toldme on the phone that when his wife left him last year it left him awreck, an emotional jawbreaker, but that he feels a little better now,and his billfold is coming along nicely, and the trustees at the banksaid his banking and savings are expected to make a full recovery,so all it not lost. ——— Since the beginning time man indeed has always dared the world around him, like a beast of the field, the rough forest and jun gle alike. He and he alone has conquered the inhabitation of the earthand now reaches out to the universe and beyond. But hold it there,men. There is still and yet down here something you will never con quer, Cloud Riders, and she comes in the form called woman. Thefirst woman to ever exist betrayed him, Adam. And the strongestman Samson to ever dwell on Mother Earth was done under by awoman called Delilah. And the most prolific bank robber John Dil lenger was tripped up by the lady in the red dress. So Supen Man may I humbly suggest that perhaps you lay down in a hammock tied to two trees and sorta think things over. What doyou say, pal?Truman A.

Playing in their final games are (left to right) Gustavo Toledo, Ricardo V era, Luis Quiros, Daniel Villagran, Ruben Sandoval and Ezequiel Perez. DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My friend adopted a littlemixed terrier that he named"Jessie." She must have comefrom an abusive situation be cause she trembles terribly,barks and sometimes peeswhenever anyone but myfriend tries to interact with her.I always thought I could getalong with any dog, but Jessieis terrified of me. What can Ido to make friends? —Casey in Sioux City, Iowa DEAR CASEY: Sometimes it can be extremely difficult tomake friends with other people'spets. Temperament and the dogor cat's early environment canplay big roles in how they inter act with others outside their per ceived family unit. Jessie might not have come from an abusive situation; itcould be that she wasn't social ized correctly. And if she wasjust dumped at the shelter (orwho knows where else), shecould have been traumatized bybeing abandoned. It's a sad and tough situation, but it sounds likeyour friend is giving her greatcare, and they have bonded. Don't get frustrated if Jessie doesn't take to you immediately.Always give her a friendly"hello" when you come in. If shebacks away or gets nervouswhen you reach out to pat her,pull back calmly. She eventually may come to you to sniff your hand or yourankle — stay calm and say nice,soothing words. If she sniffs yourhand without backing away, trygently running your hand alongher jawline to her ear, andscratch her ear gently. Don't tryto pat the top of her head, anddon't press your face into hers —many dogs react negatively tothese motions. It could be weeks or months before Jessie allows you to pether, or maybe never. But give hertime and space to feel confidentand safe enough to let you in aswell.Send your questions or advice toask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. Paw s Corner By Sam Mazzotta Lake Placid on Monday in ahard-fought battle. Each teamhad 14 shots on goal, but LakePlacid’s strong defense wouldnot let Hardee goals get by.Hardee lost 3-0. “Hardee played well together for the first match after Christ-mas break. Our defense playedwell,” commented Head CoachDennis Aubry. It was also a tough go at DeS oto last Thursday. DeSoto had18 shots on goal to just five forHardee. “DeSoto was quick andpassed well. They played longpasses from the back of the de fense. Hardee was offsides ninetimes as DeSoto played the off sides-trap well,” reported Aubry. DeSoto’s three scores came on a near perfect long shot in thesecond quarter and twice in the third quarter on a pass-back anda deflection, added Aubry. Last week ended with another battle against Bulldogs, this oneagainst Frostproof. With bothteams in a rebuilding year afterlosing more than 10 playersapiece from graduation, it wasan even-steven game. Har-deehad more shots on goal, 18 to10, but Frostproof won 3-2. “Hardee played better with quick passes and team move ment than in the near past. Weare still having trouble finishing.Manuel Palacios scored in thefirst quarter on a header from acorner kick by Eduardo Lopezand again on a breakaway in thefourth,” concluded Aubry. Joining Palacios and Lopez in district playoffs next week areseniors Gustavo Toledo, Luis Quiros, Ricardo Vera, DanielVillagran, Ruben Sandoval andEzequiel Perez, along with fel low underclassmen AgustinToldeo, Frederick Torres, Gus-tavo Salazar, Luis Castillo,Alexis Arenas, Rodrigo Rod-riguez, Santiago Ramos andMario Bautista.

Even though the burial service was brief, someonehad time to steal his car whilethe mourners bowed theirheads in prayer. Realizingwhat had happened, a friendsaid, “I guess you can’t betoo careful even at your ownfuneral. You never know whatmight happen after you die.” But we can know without a doubt what will happen afterwe die. We know that Godloves us and that we are verydear to Him. We also knowthat a car can take us manyplaces, but not to heaven.Only our faith in the Lord cando that.

Your Business Could Appear Here!Nancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce DanielsThe Herald Advocate 773-3255www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com By CHIP BALLARDFor The Herald-Advocate Marcus Ezelle and I were dorm mates at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Our rooms were di-rectly across the hall from each other, and often ourdoors stood open. As I listened to Elvis and Orbison, read Hemingway and Wolfe, made up tall tales and wrote stories,Marcus listened to classical music, studied political sci-ence and read law books. I had great respect for him and knew he would go far. Today, Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle covers Hardee, Polk and Highlands counties. To say his sched-ule keeps him busy is understatement. But Ezelle hasmastered busy and, like all masters, makes it look easy. He never appears in a rush nor is he ever in too much of a hurry to stop in a store or on a street cornerto speak and inquire of one’s family and mutual ac-quaintances. This pace has provided the judge withlongevity and earned respect from his community. Ezelle was elected Hardee County judge in 2000. In 2006, he was elected a circuit judge for the 10th Ju-dicial Circuit of Florida. He lives in Wauchula, and isthe first resident circuit judge elected from HardeeCounty. “Hardee County is still a place where you know most people, how they are related, what they do for aliving, and what they like and dislike,” he describes. The Ezelle family has a long history of elective service. His father, Curtis, was Hardee County tax col-lector for 48 years. Ezelle says he is inspired by his fa-ther’s generation for living through the GreatDepression and World War II. “Many of that generation I have talked with said it was the Depression more than the war that made themtough,” Ezelle notes. The courthouse is familiar territory to Ezelle and the fact he works there is no surprise because he hasbeen going there all his life. “Because my father wascounty tax collector, I grew up playing at the court-house, riding bicycles and climbing trees,” he says. “I could step through a window in the collector’s office on the second story onto a ledge, balance myselfto reach a tree, and then climb to the first floor to get aCoke — without getting caught!” Observing Ezelle at work in the courtroom is eavesdropping on an artist. His courtroom is his can-vas; the case before him his subject. The attorneys, wit-nesses, and parties in court are the nuances of color andconflict. The law books he knows so well are hispaints. His brushes are his keen instincts and under-standing of human nature and the human condition. Born and raised in Wauchula, Ezelle is a sixth generation Floridian. He was born in 1952 and was gradu-ated from Hardee Senior High School in 1970 takingthe American Legion Award. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in classics, emphasis in Latin and Greek, in 1974 from the Univer-sity of South Florida in Tampa. He attended MercerUniversity’s Walter F. George Law School, where hetook his law degree in 1978. He was winner of the SunTrust Estate Planning Award for Georgia, 1978, and thechairman of Law Day, 1978. Before his election as judge, Ezelle practiced wills, trusts and estate-planning law. He is a former member of the 10th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission, trustee of South FloridaCommunity College and the Hardee Memorial HospitalBoard. He is a Take Stock in Children mentor and aformer board member of Hardee Habitat for Humanity. Ezelle and his wife, Carol, who teaches science at Hardee Senior High School have two sons and onedaughter. Each is a member of All Saints EpiscopalChurch in Lakeland. Judge Ezelle says his judicial philosophy is simple, “Give parties the respect they are due and follow thelaw.” He cites U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts’ statements: “Nobody ever went to a ball game to see theumpire,” and “Umpires don’t make the rules but applythem,” as good judicial perspective. Before he was elected a county judge in 2000, Ezelle was in private practice for 22 years. His profes-sional activities in those years include a partnershipwith Burton, Evers & Ezelle. He has also served as anassistant public defender and was city attorney forWauchula, the city of Bowling Green and the town ofZolfo Springs. Among Judge Ezelle’s civic responsibilities were president of the Wauchula Kiwanis Club, a member ofthe Hardee County Industrial Board, member of theHardee Memorial Hospital Board, South Florida Com-munity College Board of Trustees and Hardee Habitatfor Humanity Board of Directors. He also has been in-volved in Take Stock in Children as a mentor since2001. With all that, one wonders how Ezelle finds time for anything else, but he’s also busy with hobbies. He enjoys reading, walking and traveling. Occasionally, he says, someone invites him to go hunt aturkey. Emphasizing the fact that he is not a hunter, headmits to occasionally accepting the invitation. “My primary interest is travel,” he says. “When time and budget permit, I see World War II sites inEngland, France and Germany. My last trip was a re-turn to the D-Day beaches in Normandy, where my fa-ther landed on June 6, 1944. I have also visitedBuchenwald concentration camp near Weimar.” Currently, he is reading “The Coming of the Third Reich,” “The Eight Pillars of Greek Wisdom” and“Epictetus’ Maxims” — not exactly light fare. Ezelle is old enough to remember the segregated signs at the restrooms and water coolers at the court-house. In his chambers he keeps an old brass spittoon,salvaged and polished, from the old courthouse prior tothe renovation. Some things improve with time. Most people would agree Judge Marcus Ezelle has withstood thattest fine, thank you.Visit author Chip Ballard’s website at chipballard.comto find out more about this story and his other pub-lished works.

BARKER, Deputy ClerkTax Deed File No.: 252013TD049XXXXPursuant to F.S. 197.512 12:26-1:16c G G o o o o d d H H e e a a l l t t h h t t o o G G o o With the holidays behind us, we're back to the hustle and bus tle of the work week. For manyof us, healthy habits seem to goout the window as soon as westep beyond our front door.When eating away from home,planning may be the most impor tant action a person can takewhen trying to maintain ahealthy lifestyle. When stressedor rushed, many of us revert toour old, familiar habits. If thosehabits aren't healthy, that's whenpoor choices are made. Habitsmay include grabbing high-fatdoughnuts, stopping at conven ient fast-food restaurants, eatinglarger portions or making after noon visits to the vending ma chine. Planning ahead provides a va riety of healthy food choices andportion sizes that are satisfying.With a little thought, anyone canplan a healthy snack or meal-on-the-go to fit any situation. Usethese as inspiration:—Whole-wheat bagel, low-fatcheese, pear, water—Fresh spinach, feta and cubedchicken (leftover from lastnight's dinner) in a whole wheatpita, grapes, skim milk—Broth-based soup (pass on thecream soups), baked wheatcrackers, apple—Sliced turkey with low-fatdressing (skip the high-fat mayo)wrapped in a lettuce leaf, bakedchips, fresh berries, iced tea Try these tips when you are away from home:—If eating in the car is a troublespot for you, make it a rule toonly bring water in the car if youare traveling for an hour or less.—If your weakness is stoppingat convenience stores, fast-foodrestaurants or vending machines,put those on your "do not stop"list, or only order one item, likethe grilled chicken, and bring therest of your meal in a cooler. —Lettuce, instead of a bun,wrapped around chicken or aburger is a tasty alternative.Make the local grocery storeyour food stop or get yourself acooler where you keep a "stash"of healthy options — energybars, bottled water, nuts or fruit.—Bring a healthy snack or lunchwith you. Include some protein;it satisfies longer. With the apple,bring some peanut butter, cheeseor nuts. Microwave popcorn(trans fat-free, of course) also isa great choice.—Carrying lunch to work notonly saves you money, you have KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis the added benefit of choosingwhat's healthiest for you!—Take along healthy foods thattravel well: Cottage cheese, veg etable sticks, yogurt, fruit, gra nola bars and nuts are greatchoices.—Keep refreezeable ice packs inyour freezer to throw in yourcooler when transporting meat,dairy and cooked foods. Freeze100 percent juice packs or, in apinch, throw some ice cubes in azipper-lock plastic bag. This recipe for Sweet Potato Hummus is a healthy snack topack for the days when you're onthe go. The orange flesh of thesweet potato gives away its beta-carotene content. By serving thisdip with whole-wheat pita andraw vegetables such as red pep pers and broccoli, you'll also getselenium, vitamin C and sul foraphane. Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans are a good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber and help to pre vent blood-sugar levels fromrising too rapidly after a meal.Chickpeas are high in proteinand also promote slow burningof complex carbohydrates, thusincreasing your energy by re plenishing your iron stores.Peanut butter adds a boost ofprotein and a creamy texture tothe hummus. Divide the Hummus into serv ing-size containers along withseveral individual packages ofvegetable sticks so you'll alwayshave a nutritious snack to graband go!

CollectingQ: My parents lived in Chicago during the 1940s, and we were one of the first families in our neighborhood to buy a television set. It was a DuMont, Model RA-101-1A console. My mother wants to know if it has any value, since she is thinking of disposing of it. Charlotte, Midland, MI A: Most older television sets seem to sell in the $150 to $300 range, but as with most collectibles there are always excep tions. Your DuMont televisionradio-phonograph combination is one of those exceptions. Manufactured in 1946, it is refer enced in "Antique Trader Radio and Television Price Guide" edited by Kyle Husfloen. Accord ing to Husfloen, your set is worth about $1,500. Q: I have a pair of Chelsea figurines and have been offered $600 for both. They are in perfect condition, and since I am close to retirement would like to sell the pieces. What is your advice? Isabel, Manchester, N.H. A: The Chelsea Porcelain Company was established during the mid-1700s in England and was known primarily for its production of intricate figurines. My advice is to contact a certified appraiser in your area for his or her expert opinion. The cost would be nominal, and an expert could answer your ques tion about current val ues. Recently, a woman from Delaware con tacted me through this column about "several old dolls." I gave her the same advice, to hire the services of an appraiser. She had been offered $500 for her four dolls. She had them appraised and was aston ished to discover they were worth a total of $6,000. Her appraisal cost her about $50 and was, according to her, one of the best investments she ever made. Q: Please give me an idea of what a couple of "Raikes Bears" are worth. They are a pair, a girl and a boy, dressed and in new condition. They are approximately 25 years old. Lucy, Los Ranchos, N.M. A I am not sure which bears you have. I did find "April and Johnnie Bear" manufactured in 1993 on eBay, and this might be like or similar to the ones you have. The set on eBay were being offered for $28.

Driver Dies As Tanker Explodes Capital Felony Count Lodged 58-Year-Old Man Accused Of Molesting Girls 8 & 9 School District Bans Tobacco MLK Day Celebration Set By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate After a years hiatus, celebrations for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day are coming back to Hardee County. Also in observing the holiday, all schools in Hardee County will be closed as well as the courthouse, post offices and Zolfo Springs Town Hall. Both Bowling Green and Wauchula city halls will stay open. MLK Day is celebrated every third Monday in January, and this year the Magnolia Manor MLK Committee is organizing a service, parade and a day of fun activities to honor King. The candlelight service is this Sunday at 5 p.m. and will take place at New Mt. Zion African Methodist Episcopal Church located at 1615 Martin Luther King Jr. Ave. in Wauchula. Everyone is encouraged to at tend and commemorate King. Then on Monday, the national MLK Day holiday will be celebra ted with a parade in downtown Wauchula at 1 p.m. The parade will leave the old junior high lot, go right onto West Main Street, turn onto South Seventh Avenue, turn again onto West Orange Street and end back at the old school lot. Following the parade, Fun Day will be held at Magnolia Manor Park until sundown. Daryl Cook, who is organizing the events, says there will be fun games for everyone to enjoy. She also said foods such as hot dogs and hamburgers will be available for purchase at the park. All of these celebrations are in honor of a man who believed that people of every race could one day get along with one an other, with no segregation or discrimination. His beliefs grew after he married and had chil dren of his own. King was highly intelligent and proved it when he graduated from high school at the age of 15. He later went to More-house College and obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree; earned a Bachelor of Divinity from Crozer The ological Seminary; and received a Doctors Degree from Boston University. Other accomplishments include being a member of the Na tional Association for the Advancement of Colored People, president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the Man of the Year for Time magazine in 1963, and the youngest person to receive the Nobel Peace Prize, at the age of 35. King was assassinated on April 4, 1968, outside his hotel room in Memphis, Tenn., by a sniper. He was 39 years old. By holding these celebrations in his name, the MLK Committee hopes to keep his legacy and his dream of equality alive. By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Scorching flames and a massive plume of thick black smoke engulfed a fuel tanker last week after a crash which cost a 61year-old man his life. The single-vehicle wreck caused traffic to be diverted for over five hours. Nearby homes had to be evacuated for safety reasons. Television news station helicopters hovered over the crash site, filming its dramatic destruction. The accident occurred Thursday on State Road 62 at Moye Road. A call to Hardee County Fire-Rescue was placed at 2:06 p.m. John Allan Hulse of Palm Harbor was driving the 1998 Mack semi at the time, accord ing to Florida Highway Patrol crash investigator Tpr. J.A. Irizarry. Hulse was traveling e astbound on SR 62, approaching Moye Road, when for an un known reason he went off the pavement and onto the south shoulder of the highway. Irizarry goes on to say that the tanker overturned, hit a guard rail and then exploded into flames. FHP homicide in vestigator Cpl. R. Highsmith said Hulse sustained fatal in juries from the crash. Fire Prevention Officer Alyssa Henderson of Hardee County Fire-Rescue notes the tanker was carrying 7,200 gal lons of unleaded fuel and 1,300 gallons of premium unleaded fuel.

Marvin Glen Cook, 58, of 624 Snell St., was arrested by Det. David Drake of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office on Dec. 19 and charged with one capital felony, four life felonies and one second-degree felony in connec tion with the alleged sexual as saults of girls 8 and 9 years old. The State Attorneys Office officially approved the case for prosecution on Tuesday of last week, and Cook was arraigned in Hardee Circuit Court that same day. Through Assistant Public Defender Rhonda Whitaker, Cook has entered a plea of not guilty to all six charges. See CAPITAL FELONY2A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate The use of tobacco products is no longer allowed on any school property or at any school event. The new rule became an official districtwide mandate during the latest School Board meeting with the final adoption of the Comprehensive Tobacco-Free Policy. The policy took full ef fect on Jan. 1. The policy applies to stu dents, employees, volunteers, parents, spectators and visitors. It says that no one is allowed at any time to use any sort of tobacco product in a building, facility or vehicle which is owned, leased or rented by the school district. This means the policy is in effect 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. It includes chartered grounds and property, such as school buildings, district offices, ath letic fields, practice fields, playgrounds, parking lots, administrative offices and main tenance or transportation areas. Or, in short, no more smoke breaks on school-related grounds. F urther, no more chewing tobacco while watching a Wildcat football game. Specifically, the rule also applies to people who attend any onor off-campus school-related event, such as sporting competitions, day camps, field trips, seminars, dances or theatrical productions. Some of the tobacco products no one is allowed to use on school grounds include ciga rettes, cigars, pipes, hookah, chewing tobacco and more. However, these arent the only things on the list. Electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes), or any other product name, are also not allowed. The policy defines these as any oral device that provides a vapor of liquid nicotine, lobelia, and/or other substance and the use of inhalation of which simulates smoking. The board began looking into implementing this type of policy after Patty Saunders and Erik Castanon of the Hardee County Health Department showed up at a board meeting

There i s something for everyone at the fair. The price of regular gasoline in Hardee County this week was $3.29 a gallon. Hardee County ASAPP says tobacco causes about 430,000 deaths annually in the U.S., including 28,600 deaths in Florida which is slightly more than Hardee Countys population. Tobacco products and smoke contain over 7,000 chemicals, including 100 that can cause cancer. One man in Hardee County said Monday he has cut his daily cigarette habit from 20 down to 10 (a half pack). The shooting death in a Wesley Chapel movie theatre Monday was tragic and could have been avoided. A man was texting his young daughter during the previews, upsetting the man behind him. An argument escalated. The 43-year-old man with the cellphone threw popcorn on the 71-year-old retired Tampa police officer, who had a gun. The younger mans wife put her hand over her husbands chest. A shot was fired, going through her hand and into her hus bands chest. A planned fun night at the movies resulted in tragedy, according to an Associated Press report. I wish one of the two men, or both of them, had heeded Proverbs 15:1 A soft answer turneth away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger. The Bible contains a lot of good advice on living life. The Bible says we humans have a sinful nature and teaches how to have a good life here on earth and beyond. Deer can be dangerous. The Lakeland Ledger reported Jan. 14 a deer named Vinny at a wildlife sanctuary near Spring Hill gored the sanctuarys owners sister, 75, causing the removal of her right eye. As a young girl my mother lost an eye because a boy threw a rock. Someone once said reading a daily newspaper is a poor mans college education. There is some truth to that. Hardee County is home to at least four types of Big Birds wild turkeys, sandhill cranes, buzzards and great blue herons. This is a recent photo of a pair of sandhill cranes in Bowling Green just south of the elemen tary school. Alex Rodriguez (A-Rod) is fighting his 162-game sus pension for alleged use of performance enhancing drugs. The suspension for the 2014 Major League Season will cost the New York Yankee player about $22 million if it stands. He would still get about $3 million. The 39-year-old slugger is getting toward the end of a 10-year $250 million contract. Different people have different challenges in life. Environmental writer Tom Palmer of the Lakeland Ledger says Floridas growing population (currently 19.5 million and perhaps soon to pass New York as the nations third most populated state be hind California and Texas) puts a potential strain on our ecosystem. Historically there is constant friction between developers and environmentalists over land habitat and water supply and quality. U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney announced this week he has helped secure another $20 million in federal funding to fight the citrus green ing disease. Floridas current orange crop is estimated at 115 million boxes, the smallest crop since the 1989-90 season of 110 million boxes which followed a big freeze. Florida in the 2003-04 season produced 242 million boxes of oranges. Oranges are smaller this year, taking 286 on average to fill a 90-pound box compared with 220-230 historically, reports the Ledgers Kevin Bouffard. It my take 243 valencia oranges per box this year, compared with 200 usually. Premature fruit drop has been a problem this year and last year. A smaller crop means higher prices for oranges, with one estimate of $1.80 a pound solids for early and mid-season oranges. Caretaking costs have risen to about $2,000 an acre. Orange juice consumption has continued to decline, however orange juice re mains the nations No. 1 juice, at about 3.1 gallons per person annually. Apple juice is second at 1.7 gallons, followed by grape juice and cranberry juice. Years ago Americans drank an average of five gallons of OJ a year. American men live to an average of 75 years and women 80 years, reports Nancy Churnin of the Dallas Morning News. Men in Australia and Japan live to 79 on average, Japanese women live an average of 86 years and in Italy and France, 84 years, according to a 2006 report of the National Academy of Sciences. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in American men and women, claiming about 25 percent of the deaths. Churni n writes to increase odds of living longer, people should exercise, eat right, not smoke, get screened, and enjoy life. Harvard School of Public Health says a healthy food plate is one-half fruits and vegetables, one-quarter whole grains, and one-quarter healthy proteins such as fish, poultry, beans and nuts. I say to add some good red beef. Franklin McCain Sr. and three fellow college students on Feb. 1, 1960, sat down at a whites-only lunch counter at the F.W. Woolworth store in Greensboro, N.C., and asked for coffee. This started lunch counter sit-ins in cities across the country, wrote Steve Lyttle and David Perlmutt of the Charlotte Observer. The Woolworth store integrated the lunch counter July 25, 1960. McCain died earlier this month at age 71. His parents and grandparents taught that children had a good chance of success in life if they followed the Bill of Rights, U.S. Constitution and the 10 Commandments, plus working hard and helping others. McCain graduated from North Carolina A & T with degrees in chemistry and biology and worked about 35 years as a chemist and sales representative for the Celanese Corporation in Charlotte and remained active in civil rights efforts. As an elderly white woman left the lunch counter at the Woolworth store on Feb. 1, 1960, she put her hands on the shoulder of McCain and another student, saying Boys, I am so proud of you. I only wish youd done this 10 years ago. O.J. Simpson, 66, is in the fifth year of a 9-to-33 year prison sentence after a jury found him guilty of various charges in a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas casino hotel in 2007. His lawyers plan to appeal his sentence to the Nevada Supreme Court. Simpson claims he did not get a fair trial due to his fame following his 1995 acquittal in Los Angeles of charges he murdered his ex-wife and her male friend, reports the Associated Press. Five co-defendants in the 2007 case have served prison time and are free, while Simpson remains in prison. I always felt O.J. Simpson, a Heisman Trophy-winning running back at the University of Southern California and a great runner for the NFL Buffalo Bills, if he had not gotten into trouble could have been a natural spokesman for selling orange juice, given his initials. He later became an actor and spokesman for a rental car company. Marisa Kendall of the Associated Press recently reported 59 percent of Floridians who died in 2011 were cremated, a growing trend. In 2012 74 percent of Lee and 73 percent of Collier County residents who died were cremated. The Cremation Association reports a typical cremation costs $2,250 compared with $8,350 for an average burial. Several years ago I saw a family bring ashes of their father to spread along Fisheating Creek, where he had his happiest times of hunting, fishing and camping.

Weapons are currently pro hibited from being brought into a meeting. Ideas ranged from installing metal detectors as citizens enter the room to bullet-proofing part of the dais. Commissioner Sue Birge made a motion to have Albritton gather information on adding a portable metal detector that could be set up at the en trance of the board room, and bring it back to the commission for its further consideration. Her motion was passed unanimously. Albritton said he has spoken individually to some of the com missioners, and they have differ ent ideas or wants when it comes to security. He said a metal detector would not X-ray bags and briefcases, such as the main court houses security system does, so i nstalling a detector may limit citizens from bringing weapon into the room. Sheriff Arnold Lanier said adding a metal detector would create a need for an additional person to man the machine during meetings. He said audience members would have to pass through the device every time they left the room, such as when commissioners take a recess. A portable machine is ex pected to cost about $5,000. Commissioner Colon Lam bert said boards in other coun ties have a bulletproof dais and each commissioner also has a bulletproof shield to escape the room safely. Mike Thompson seemed to be somewhere in the middle of the ideas thrown around. When it comes to security I am not vehemently opposed to it, however I am not terribly excited about it either, he said.

The IDA board, which has 13 members, voted to allocate $15,000 for the renovation ex penses. County Manager Lex Albritton presented a draft design for commissioners to review and approve last Thursday. Plans will extend the existing platform out toward the audience, and will have ample room to accom modate both boards. Albritton said the work will be performed by county staff, and that he expects work to begin in about 30 days. He said the allocation from the IDA should pay for all the construction costs. A new video and sound sys tem will also be installed. Commissioners also expresCounty Boardroom Getting Makeover cause such an inconvenience to c itizens attending the meetings. People attending the meeting Thursday did not like the idea for the most part. Horst Witschonke said adding the security measures would reduce the number of citizens at tending the meetings. Pam Bellflower wanted Albritton to research other similar counties and find out what security measures they use be fore making a decision. Frank Kirkland said the best security would be for all citizens and commissioners to carry a weapon during the meetings. He also reminded commissioners if someone really intended to do harm, he could just wait outside the building for the meeting to adjourn. Bob Cole said he did not see a need for the added security. We live in a non-violent com munity, he said. Instead of inconveniencing your citizens you could wear bulletproof vests and Kevlar helmets if you are afraid. CAPITAL FELONYContinued From 1A rectchevy.com L LOYD HALL 1:16c Charges filed Tuesday by Ass istant State Attorney David Ward include one count of sexual battery on a child under the a ge of 12, four counts of lewd molestation, and one count of escape. T he sexual battery of a young child is a capital offense, and should Cook be found guilty of that crime, he faces life in prison without parole. Though a capital case, the Supreme Court long ago ruled out imposition of the death penalty for sexual of fenses. The lewd molestation counts, too, carry a penalty of life in prison. Cooks next court date before Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle is set for Feb. 18. Meanwhile, the suspect is being held in the Hardee County Jail without bond pending trial. According to Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office, the allegations against Cook first came to light on Nov. 19. A mother reported to authorities that she had just become aware of an incident in which her daughter and the childs friend were possibly molested. Dey said because of the young ages of the two girls, they were interviewed by the Child Protec tion Team in Bartow on separate occasions and, when necessary, by using paper drawings. Both reported two instances of the alleged abuse. In the first, each girl described being at a Wauchula house and being enticed into the suspects bedroom to play a game for money. Once there, Cook al legedly instructed them to pull their pants down. He then performed an illicit act, Dey charged. The second incident allegedly occurred behind the church at 1607 Martin Luther King Jr. Av e nue. There, Cook ap-proached the two children about earning some money and promising them it would only take a couple minutes of their time. He allegedly repeated the actions from the first encounter, but also unzipped his pants and exposed himself, Dey said. Then, the major charged, he engaged in sexual relations with the 9-year-old. Once it was over, the girl re ported, Cook gave her $5 and told her not to tell anyone. Though the children only knew their alleged assailant by a nickname, each girl positively identified Cook in a photo lineup. Cook was later interviewed by Det. Drake, and stated he would never hurt a child. Further, Dey noted, Cook consented to a polygraph examination, where he was found to be eva sive in his responses. Cook continued to deny the allegations, Dey said, but was advised there existed sufficient probably cause to arrest him. He was permitted to hand his personal belongings over to someone who was waiting in the lobby area of the Sheriffs Of fice, then he walked over to the jails entrance door. There, Cook began to enter and then quickly turned and ran, Dey alleged. Drake and nearby officers chased the fleeing suspect, with Drake catching Cook on Bay Street. The charge of escape was added when he was ultimately booked into the jail.

January 16, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate Four young adults who attacked a business owner, stab bing him and stealing drugs, at Christmastime 2012 have now been sentenced for their crimes. The first, set for jury trial on Dec. 9, instead changed his plea and was sentenced on Dec. 6. The last was sentenced just last week. Christopher Lee Minton, 21, Matthew John George, 23, and Kristine Michele George and Tabatha Marie Prestridge, both 19, had been arrested by sher iffs authorities on Dec. 26, 2012, and charged with various counts in the Dec. 21 attack on Henry Hank Williams at his mechanics shop on U.S. 17 near State Road 62. Minton, who was said to have w ielded the knife, will now spend the next 14 years in Florida State Prison. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle adjudicated him guilty of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, and also assessed $1,220 in fines and court costs. Additional charges of attempted armed robbery, tampering with physical evidence and unlawful use of a two-way communica tion device were dropped in exchange for the plea to the most serious count. Once Minton pleaded out and his jury trial was canceled, sentencing of his co-defendants commenced. All had been charged with the same four criminal offenses as Minton, and all entered into plea agreements dropping the most s erious count along with two others. Only attempted armed robbery remained. Kristine Georges case came up first, and she was sentenced on Dec. 12. Matthew George was next, on Dec. 17. And Prestridge came last. She was sentenced on Tuesday of last week. Each of the trio received the same penalty. First, Ezelle ordered each des ignated a violent offender of special concern. Then he im posed seven years of supervised probation with drug conditions. He assessed fines and costs of between $1,400 and $1,700 per defendant. Restitution has been ordered, and none may have any contact with their victim. A ccording to Hardee County Sheriffs Office reports, the Georges and Prestridge walked into the office of the mechanics shop and began talking to Williams. Minton, waiting out side, was tipped off via a cellphone call and entered the area, coming up behind Williams and hitting him. A scuffle ensued, and that is when Williams was stabbed. Sheriffs authorities said the young assailants then grabbed some methamphetamine and fled the scene. Williams was airlifted by medical helicopter to Tampa General Hospital, where he was treated for his injuries and later released. Five days later, the quartet was charged and jailed. Lead Attacker Gets 14 Years Minton M. George K. George Prestridge By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate One man was jailed and an other hospitalized late Saturday night after a drunken brawl al legedly ended in a stabbing. According to Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office, authorities were called to Langs Trailer Park in Wauchula at about 11:57 p.m. They re sponded to 116 Lang Dr., No. 3, to learn from a resident of the mobile home that two of his fellow farm workers had been fighting. At one point, the witness said, one of the roommates picked up an eightto 10-inch knife from the counter and plunged it into the other roommates abdomen. The knife cut into the left side of the abdominal area, Dey noted. The suspect, Hipolito Telesfor Vargas, 54, then fled on foot. The witness described Vargas and his clothing to responding officers. Dep. Steve Ahrens and his K-9 tracked the suspect, finding him hiding under a tree. Vargas was taken into custody a nd booked into the Hardee County Jail on the second-de gree felony charge of aggravated battery. He re-mained in custody as of Tuesday in lieu of bond. His alleged victim, Dey said, was treated at the hospital and later discharged. The knife, he added, was found on the ground in front of the trailer and was seized as evidence.

Authorities allege he fired a bullet at a sheriffs deputy. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office said deputies had responded to a call on Wednesday at around 4:30 p.m. saying the man was despondent, was armed with a gun and had continually refused to come out of his room. He allegedly had threatened harm to himself or anyone who bothered him, Dey said. Responding to the East Main Street residence, deputies and Sheriff Arnold Lanier made numerous attempts to get the man to leave his bedroom and come out of the house. He would not, Dey said. As hours passed, the sheriffs tactical unit sent tear gas into a bedroom window in an attempt to force the armed man from the house. One such gas canister was followed by a gunshot from within, Dey alleged. The man had fired a round t hrough a window and toward a deputy, breaking the glass but not striking the officer, Dey said. Further, he charged, the man threatened to kill the deputies or anyone who came into his house. Eventually, however, the tear gas forced the man from the residence. He was taken to Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in St. Petersburg for evaluation, Dey said, and re mained there as of this Tuesday. No one in the home nor re sponding officers was harmed in the incident, he said. A search warrant executed after the man was out of the house revealed a loaded .40-caliber Glock handgun in the bedroom, along with several other firearms. Dey said once the man is re leased from the hospital, charges could follow. He advised families of the elderly to monitor their behav ior. It is up to the family when someone is displaying erratic behavior to address it, he said. In the least, they should remove any guns from the home. Elderly Man I n Standoff In Business B y Maria Trujillo TRINKETS TO TREASURES At the new antiques shop on Main Street in Wauchula, many hidden treasures can be found. Heritage Park Antiques & Treasures opened last year at the start of the holiday season. Owner Belva Vance, a Hardee County resident since 1969, also owns another antiques shop in Plant City. Vance has always loved antiques, and it was because of their love for antiques that Vance and a neighbor decided to sell antiques out of a small space about 10 years ago. After a while Vance was left without a partner and a place to sell the items. It was then that she partnered with other antique lovers to open a store and continue selling antiques. Vance gets items from auctions, estate sales, other antique shops, yard sales and travels to other places to find a good antique. In fact, she once traveled all the way to Pennsylvania for new merchandise. Consignment is also an option at the store. Store merchandise includes chalk-painted furniture, shabby chic and primitive items, glassware, old books, paintings and much more. Some of the oldest pieces for sale are from the 1800s, including a dresser and a bedside potty box. There are also original tin tiles from the ceiling of the building available if anyone is interested in purchasing them. The Main Street building used to be a part of a hotel which stood there several years ago. Some of the artwork for sale has a distinctive look to it. That is because the young woman from Deland who creates the paintings does so by blowing paint through a straw and onto the canvas itself. This young lady also takes stunning photos and makes jewelry that Vance also sells. Vance encourages people to come to the shop to see all of its interesting offerings. She says seeing some of the things makes you think of earlier days. Vance also urges people who have already vis ited to continue to do so since items are constantly changing, meaning new things are showing up regularly. She noted, People come because grandma had it, my mother threw it out and now Im buying it back. Heritage Park Antiques & Treasures is located at 210 W. Main St., next to Java Cafe. It is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Shoppers and browsers alike can like the shops Facebook page or call Vance at 773-0057. New business or management? Remodeling or relocating? Call Maria Trujillo at 773-3255 with your business news. This is only one of the pieces of furniture that can be f ound in the new antiques shop in town. Owner Belva Vance also sells glassware, artwork, jewelry, old books and other trinkets that can become someones treasure. PHOTOS BY MARIA TRUJILLO B elva Vance stands in front of her new shop, Heritage Park Antiques & Treasures on Main Street in downtown Wauchula. in May asking for a smoke-free pol icy for the district. Castanon gave a synopsis of tobacco use and what the effects are on young smokers. The board agreed, saying the use of tobacco products is detrimental to the health and safety of students, employees and visitors. School Board members also acknowledged that adult staff and visitors serve as role models for students, and therefore they wanted to promote a tobaccofree district. The new rule states, The purpose of this policy is to es tablish a school districtwide tobacco-free environment, provide notification to the public and to school district employees and students, provide education and resources to tobacco users, and to provide an explanation of the disciplinary action that will be taken with those that abuse this policy. The school district will con sult with student services, the Hardee County Health Department, the American Lung Association and other health organizations to provide pro grams for students so they will better understand the health haz ards tobacco use can have on them. Although this policy goes in to effect for all school grounds, it is up to each schools administrators to tell those within their schools or departments about the policy as well as to discipline those who break the new rule. Director of Educational Facilities Rob Krahl said signs ad vising everyone of the new rule have been purchased for all lo c ations, including schools and ancillary facilities. His depart ment began installing the signs on Friday. The tobacco-free policy will be assessed and reviewed by the school district every year to determine whether enough is being done to enforce it. It will be updated when necessary. To review the full policy, visit the Hardee County schools web site at hardee.k12.fl.us.TOBACCOContinued From 1A EXPLODESContinued From 1A dee County Sheriff's Office, FHP and other agencies to control the scene. Hardee Fire-Rescue cleared the scene at 7:30 p.m. Following the crash, FireRescue Deputy Chief John Adler says everyone living within a half-mile of the scene was evacuated, which included three houses. Only two had people in them at the time, he adds. Traffic was diverted off of SR 62 at Polk Road and also at North County Road 663 until midnight. After that, one lane was opened in order for cleanup to be completed on the road. Adler says the road will be mon itored for months to come. FHPs report goes on to say that alcohol was not a factor in the crash. It is unknown if Hulse was wearing a seatbelt. Hulse became the third per son to die on Hardee County roadways for the year 2014.

Magnolia Manor Pageant R egistration Ends Feb. 14 Q: An acquaintance told me recently that I could plant a tree on the west side of my house to keep my summer cooling bills down. Well, I live in a colder northern state, and it just doesn't make sense to plant a tree that would block the sun in the winter. My friend disagreed. What's your recommendation? Susie in Madison, Wis. A: The great thing about trees is that they have the ability to both keep your house cool in summer and warmer in winter. In Minnesota, a state study found that strategically placed shade trees can reduce air-conditioning bills by nearly 25 percent, and a windbreak can reduce annual fuel bills by up to 20 percent. How does it work? It all de pends on where you place the trees. In the northern hemisphere, winter winds generally blow in from the north or northwest. (In the Northeast, we also tend to get those wonderful winter nor'easters, but that's another story.) Those cold winds can make it harder to heat your home as they drive in through vents or leaky windowand door frames. Plant a couple of trees on the side of your house from which these prevailing winter winds blow (the northwest side or corner, most likely), and they'll act as a windbreak. Even deciduous trees that lose their leaves in the winter can provide adequate protection. To get the best protection from winds while allowing more winter sunlight to reach your home, choose trees that will grow higher than your home's roof eaves, with sturdy trunks and good branching. Deciduous trees will lose their leaves in winter so that the sunlight can filter in, while perennials (like pines or firs) offer a green view yearround. You might even want to mix these two types of trees. HOME TIP: Plant protective trees one to two tree lengths (based on the average height to which the saplings eventually will grow) from the house, but no farther.

We have had some good rain showers and they were certainly needed. I am thankful also that we had a good cloud cover and plenty of wind last week when real cold was anticipated. Only bad thing about the wind was all the blossoms from my orchid tree hit the ground. It was a beautiful sight but I prefer them on the tree! Grace Glorius had a beautiful party celebrating her 100th birthday. We always considered them good friends and it was a pleasure to see her and Sharon. I was looking forward to seeing Larry and Jean, but Sharon said they had a family celebration the weekend before in Valdosta. Nellie must have gone to Valdosta, as she was not here. It is really good to see friends in a setting other than a funeral. There were a lot of people, even though they are local, you just dont see them and it is always great when you do. Gayle Graham and Carla Gibbs were at the celebration, and I had not seen them in a long time. Gayle said she and daughter Lee supported each other during their last round of sickness and chemo. Gayle said they were both through with chemo and feeling good. Kathy Clark was going back to Shands as she is having more problems. Hazel Nicholson is in the Sebring hospital. Our pas tors wife, Tara, is sick with the mess as is Trish Richey, Ginny Oden and Elizabeth Pow ell. We dont think they really have the flu but just fever and feeling bad all over! Sherman had a kidney stone removed Tuesday at Lakeland Regional and Nancy McQuaig had a procedure on Wednesday. Please pray for all of these. Dolene and Joe Fields have another little baby and have named him Dillon. He is a pretty baby and very tiny. Do lene said nothing fitted him. I guess she will need to look for some preemie clothes. This little fellow needed a home and they were happy to get him. Paul and Jamie Samuels are back home with their new bundle of joy, Eli. Donald said there were about 50 people at the airport to welcome them back home. Fellowship meals began at Fort Green on Wednesday night. Adults pay $5 and children eat free. Supper begins at 6, and Wednesday night prayer service at 7. Immanuel Baptist had home coming last Sunday. Jane Kennedy was missing from our Sunday School and we decided that she was there. Brother Eddie preached there for some time. Also, Janes great-nephew, James Fortner, was injured in a rodeo accident and needs prayer. Danielle Nicholson is in col lege in Fort Myers. Alex Pier storff has returned to the Air Force Academy in Denver. Allie Yeomans is stationed in New Jersey. Allie and Alex are experiencing freezing weather, not the kind they are used to. Lots of people who move south say they miss the different season and the leaves changing, etc. This is our fall and the leaves are changing! Drive near a bayhead and you can see yellow, rust and red leaves. You just have to look but they are pretty. Gulf State sang at the Orange Blossom RV Park last Friday and they always sound good. Evelyn Durrance was there and it is always good to see her. She is one pretty lady. Greg announced that on Feb. 8 there will be three quartets singing at Northside Baptist in Wauchula. That will be good, and you dont have to travel to another town to get high-quality South-ern Gospel music. There will be a baby dedica tion at Fort Green on Sunday. Everyone is invited to attend this ceremony. The GAs are planning a silent auction during the Val-entine Dinner, which will be immedi ately after church. The date will be announced later, but it will be in February! Lynda Abbott is going to be down as their grandson, Jake, is in the army now. Lynda is already planning a trip to Oklahoma, as that is where he will be for a long time. He wont get a leave for six months and that is a long time! soc1:16,23c Faith Assembly of God soc1:16c SUNDAY J ANUARY 19 10:40 AM Pastor Billy Newell welcomes all who like great Gospel music t o come and enjoy this award winning group.

TOP Of Th e Charts as of Jan. 13, 2014 75 YEARS AGO F loridas public school text books are being streamlined to meet needs of children who are growing up in the swiftly chang ing world. State Super-intendent Colin English has announced a call for bids on more than 200,000 volumes of new books as an initial step in keeping classroom activities in touch with the times. At least 13,000 are being used by the 2,680 chil dren enrolled in Hardee County schools. News leaks out that the Gators offense for 1939 is to be streamlined. Perhaps a little re modeling of the team in this manner will aid Coach Cody to gain in popularity with some critics who were out after his hide at the close of the 1938 sea son. A surprise birthday party was given in honor of Miss Evelyn Burnett at her home on Tuesday evening, Jan. 3rd. The guests en tered singing Happy Birthday. Many games were enjoyed. The Royal Theatre is showing Torchy Gets Her Man and Dick Tracy Returns on Friday; on Saturday will be Gun Law; on Sunday and Monday, Say It In French will play; Tuesday and Wednesday will bring Illegal Traffic; and on Thursday and Friday Thanks For The Memory will be featured. 50 YEARS AGO First Lt. Kenneth Stanton, a Hardee High graduate, in a few days flew from modern-day warfare to modern-day peace. He spent 11 months, 17 days in combat in South Vietnam flying a helicopter. Stanton has a total of 274 combat support hours in over 150 missions. Lt. Stanton returned to the United States last August to Fort Rucker, Ala., where he received his discharge this month. Jerry H. Melendy from Wauchula has been appointed district commissioner by the Ex ecutive Board of the Gulf Ridge Council of the Boy Scouts of America. Bowling Green city officials last week decided to cut off serv ice to all water customers whose bills are unpaid for the second month. There will be a $1 cutoff charge and a $1 reconnection charge assessed where cutoffs are necessary. George Edward Hovis of Wauchula has been elected vice president of the John Marshall Bar Association, a law student organization at the University of Florida. 25 YEARS AGO A representative from the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights made a visit to the Hardee County School District on Jan. 9. Phoebe Dil lashaws purpose was to conduct an investigation about an allega tion filed against schools here. The complaint alleges that the district discriminated against blacks and Hispanics in these areas. A grand jury hearing testi mony at the Hardee County Courthouse Monday handed down eight indictments in the Jan. 1 slaying of a Bowling Green man. And within a scant three hours after those indict ments were issued, Hardee County sheriffs authorities had apprehended six of the suspects. The two remaining men were al ready in custody out of state, charged with unrelated weapons crimes. Charges have been levied against two men who failed in a Jan. 6 escape attempt from the Hardee County Jail. Andy Robinson, 28, and Michael Cortez Edwards, 21, were each charged last week with two counts of kidnapping, battery of a law officer, escape and criminal mischief, jail records show. Meagan Marie Smith cele brated her 4th birthday Jan. 4, 1989. 10 YEARS AGO Hardee Countys first new cit izen of 2004 is tiny Aariah White, born on Jan. 2 at 2:02 a.m. at Florida Hospital Heartland. She weighed in at nine pounds-three ounces and stretched 21 inches. A 35-year-old Wauchula man convicted of trying to molest a 12-year-old girl will spend a year behind bars and a lifetime as a registered sex offender. Normil Normius was sentenced last week in Hardee Circuit Court for the crime of attempted lewd molestation. The Hardee girls soccer squad picked up its first-ever victory last week. To say the girls were ecstatic is an understatement, as they have worked for four years for this occasion, said coach Jen nifer Long. The good news came to Sonya and Walter Olliff Jr. late last week. Our daughter called this morning and will be leaving Iraq on Feb. 14th! Destina-tion: Fort Campbell, Ky. Please keep her in your prayers as you have been. The memo went out to everyone they knew who had kept track of young Sarah Olliff, who at this time last year was enjoying time with brothers Boomer and James.

4B The Herald-Advocate, January 16, 2014 CRAPPIE ANGLERS HAVING A HAPPY NEW YEAR W elcome to 2014. Black crappie are favorite cool-weather targets for freshwater anglers, so join the fun, check your fishing li cense, the list of top sites and tips below and go fishing! What better way to start off a new year then with some healthy outdoor activity Fish Busters B y Bob Wattendorf Florida Fish & Wildlife Commission and a mess of fresh fish? Crappie are among the most popular freshwater fishes in Florida. Their deep body with nearly symmetrical dorsal and anal fins and a speckled pattern on the body make them easy to distinguish. Crappie spend much of their time offshore, feeding on small fish. This time of year they will be preparing to spawn and, as the temperatures reach 62-65 degrees, they move inshore to build nests in colonies. Nests over gravel or muddy bottoms in depths of 3-8 feet are fanned by males. Crappie eat crustaceans, insects and small fishes. A bright, 1/16oz. to 1/8-oz. jig or Hal-flies will produce once they are inshore. If they are schooling offshore, drift Missouri minnows or grass shrimp below a float, with a No. 4 hook and small split shot. Depth is key, as crappie school at the same level, so experiment until you find the right depth. Crappie (alias speckled perch or papermouth) longer than14 inches or heavier than two pounds qualify for a Big Catch anglerrecognition certificate. Youth under 16 can participate with an entry longer than 10 inches or heavier than 1.5 pounds. Easy registration makes people eligible for both Big Catch and Trophy Catch (which rewards anglers for largemouth bass heavier than eight pounds), as well as a drawing to take place in October 2014 for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Visit the websites at BigCatchFlorida.com or TrophyCatchFlorida.com to find out more. Looking for the best places to go? Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission biologists compile annual lists of top sites. It is available at MyFWC.com/Fishing (select Freshwater and Fishing Sites and Forecasts). Here are the selections for your best black crappie fishing in 2014, as compiled by Cheree Steward, FWC fisheries biologist. Lake Talquin 8,800-acre reservoir, west of Tallahassee. Lochloosa Lake 5,705 acres, between Gainesville and Ocala. Lake Weir 5,685 acres, south Marion County. Lake Griffin 10,000 acres, Lake County. Lake Monroe 9,406 acres, near Sanford. West Lake Tohopekaliga 18,810 acres, south of the city of Kissimmee. Lake Kissimmee 34,976 acres, east of the city of Lake Wales. Lake Marian 5,742 acres, Osceola County, east of Lake Kissimmee. Mosaic Fish Management Area 1,000 acres, southern Polk County. Tenoroc Fish Management Area 8,300 acres, Polk County. Lake Weohyakapka (Walk-in-Water) 7,800 acres, east of Lake Wales. Lake Arbuckle 3,800 acres, east of Frostproof. Lake Marion 2,990 acres, east of Haines City. Lake Istokpoga 28,000 acres, near Sebring. Lake Trafford 1,500 acres, southeast of Fort Myers, in Immokalee. Crappie are considered to be some of the tastiest freshwater fishes. With general bag limits for crappie set at a generous 25 fish and no size limit, unless otherwise specified, you can easily take a mess home to eat. So, bring your family and friends and get out on the water! Pioneer Creek RV News By Re ggie DeSmet And Andie McCoso CHAPEL Curt is and Jean Chaffin and Nancy Singleton and Lou Faulkner welcomed 142. Wayne introduced the many snowbirds arriving for the first chapel serv ice, and asked for prayer re quests. Devotions were led by Ardeth Johns followed by the anthem What Is This Bread? sung by the choir directed by Sandy Feeser and accompanied by Cheryl Conkle on piano. Pastor David spoke from Genesis 1 through Revelations 22, entitled Who is Jesus? Through the whole Bible we find He is both God and man united in two personalities. Communion was followed by a closing hymn. SCOREBOARD Horseshoes: Pioneer Creek won 20-12 playing at Goodlife RV Park, with Pioneer Creek turning the tables on them from the last match they played them. A gathering was enjoyed by many at a local restaurant afterward. SPOTLIGHT Tom and Terry Stamm will be married 55 years on Jan. 23, and have two sons, a daughter and eight grandchildren. They met while he was in Norfolk, Va., serving in the Marines and she was a Navy Wave. Tom is from Huron and Terry is from Knox, Ohio, and they now live in Clyde, Ohio, where they first moved into and remodeled a one-room school house on their farm. Tom has retired from farming and also was a deputy sheriff for the county. Terry has retired as a farm wife but she says you never really retire! After coming to Pioneer Cre ek for short stays the first three years and liking the people and the activities of the park, they became residents for the past 15 years. Tom enjoys golfing, hunting, fishing and playing cards, Terry enjoys bowling, embroidery, knitting, singing and crocheting. They both are a great asset to our park, and have been on the dance committee, decorating and getting the hall organized for the dances. Terrys claim to fame is their grandson, Anthony, who is a sound editor living in Santa Monica, Calif., and had been begging them to come out for a visit. Her sister-in-law arranged a visit to see him and also or dered them tickets to see the television show, The Price is Right. The tickets were for Grandparents Day, with Anthony or dering them red shirts with his reading Pick My Grandmother and Terrys reading Pick My Grandson. Lo and behold, they were picked to come on down, where on the second round they won and were up on that stage where they met Drew Carey! They didnt win the prize, which was a car, but they did win cash, a swing set and Terry got a peck on the cheek from Drew. They have many pictures and would love to tell all about their adventure. Terry is in charge of the veteran military womens lunch eon, which will be at the end of February or first of March. She would like to hear from any mil itary women who would like to attend.

Except for his mother in the forests of Africa, Clyde had not seen nor been with another chim panzee until he arrived at the Center for Great Apes sanctuary two years ago. Since then, he has met a few of our female chimpanzee resi dents but seemed fearful and unsure how to act around them. His caregivers put their heads together and tried to come up with the perfect mate for Clyde. They decided on Toddy, a sweet elderly female who, like Clyde, was wild-caught in Africa (and still has bullet fragments lodged in her brain from her capture). The caregivers started the introductions out slowly, making sure both chimps were comfortable with the idea. At first, both shared a night house but had separate bedrooms. Gradually, they started greeting each other at the cage mesh and touched and watched each other. Then the big day finally arrived, and the doors were opened so they could finally be in the same room together. What happened ne xt made all of us at the sanctuary so happy both Toddy and Clyde started to play! Toddy seemed thrilled to finally greet Clyde, and both had play faces on. Clyde seemed intent on having her close and would reach out to tickle her and grab her foot to instigate a game of chase (although with these two elderly chimpanzees, their version of chase is very slow). They would play then take a break, then resume play ing, then rest. The new couple has been together every day for over two weeks now, and it seems as though their love is blossoming. This is the best part of the work we do at the sanctuary giving rescued chimpanzees and orangutans a happier, healthier life and companionship with their own species. The Center for Great Apes is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, and tax-deductible donations are always welcomed and appreciated. Visit www.CenterforGreatApes.org or call (863) 767-8903 for more information on how you can help these intelligent great apes. COURTESY PHOTOS T he two new mates now share fun and food together every day. Toddy was the perfect match for Clyde, sweet and gentle.

Continuing to improve constantly, the Cats battled district rival DeSoto at home on Friday evening, coming up just short on a 61-57 score. They continue with a trio of games this week, with the junior varsity playing at 6 p.m. and the varsity immediately afterward, about 7:30. They went to Frostproof on Monday evening, hosted Lakeland McKeel Academy on Tuesday and travel to Sebring on Friday night for a re turn district encounter. Next weeks games are at home, Tuesday in a 7 p.m. home varsity-only game against Mulberry and Thursday against Lakeland and Friday against Avon Park. The latter two are the usual JV/varsity format. The season winds up with a Jan. 30 visit from Lake Placid for Senior Night activities hon oring seniors Tyler Helms and Steve Metayer. Hardee will play on Jan. 31 against Lake Wales Vanguard in the Mosaic Stinger Shootout. District competition is the Feb. 4,5, and 8. District oppo nents are DeSoto, Sebring and Lemon Bay. District competi tion is an unusual format this year. The top seed will host the number four seed on Feb. 4, the second seed will host the third seed on Feb. 5 and the winners of the first two games will play at the court of the highest seed on Feb. 8. Hardee had only a pair of games last week, both home dis trict encounters. The Cats hosted Sebring last Tuesday, playing an even first quarter before suc cumbing to overall pressure and losing 69-51. Hardee was down 19-16 at the end of the first period and won the second quarter 21-16 to make the game 37-35 at half time, with Hardee taking the ad vantage into the locker room. The Wildcats came out cold in the third quarter and dropped behind, unable to catch up in the fairly even fourth quarter. For Hardee, senior Steve Metayer topped out with 25 points, adding seven rebounds, three steals and a pair of assists. Helms was sidelined with an ankle injury. Junior twins Dustin Smith and Tyler Smith had three and two points respectively, while classmate Jordan Jones had five. Soph Marco DeLeon added a trey. Freshmen Djes Youte, with eight points, and Livenson Metayer, with five points rounded out the scoring. Youte and Jones each grabbed five rebounds. Tyler Smith had a blocked shot, three assists and a pair of steals. Hardees game against DeSoto was one of the most complete the Wildcats have had. DeSoto won the first quarter1310 and broke even with Hardee on a 14-14 second quarter. DeS oto won the third period, but Hardee stormed back for a 17-9 edge in the fourth quarter, coming up just shy in the 61-57 loss. Steve Metayer led all scorers with 28 points, while Youte had 11 and Livenson Metayer 11 to put three Wildcats in double digits. DeLeon and Dustin Smith each had three points and Jones added a deuce. Steve metayer had 12 rebounds, Youte seven, Jordan three and Helms two in limited action. DeLeon, Jones and Youte each had a pair of assists. Head Coach Vance Dickey has had to adjust tactics with changeovers of personnel as some players came out for the team and quit during the season. Were not real deep, but were doing the best we can. They are improving and have gotten better. Fatigue is a problem as we have a half dozen players while other squads are putting 12 to 14 on the floor, said Dickey. The team features a pair of seniors, three juniors, a soph and pair of freshmen. All figure in the season stats in varying ways, some more on rebounds and as sists and others on scoring. The junior varsity is also limited, with three sophs, Danny Sustaitia, Armando VelascoLopez and Ryan Moore and four freshmen, Boone Paris, Jason Nichols, Jesse Santoyo and Angel Cisneros. Boys Hoops Winding DownDEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is 6 feet 4 inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is a competitive distance runner. He loves Kool-Aid and calcu lates that in a year he drinks 150 pounds of sugar in KoolAid alone. A friend told him if he continues this habit, he might develop diabetes. Can a skinny, athletic person develop diabetes from consuming sugar? S.B. ANSWER: Although "sugar" is half the name of sugar dia betes, sugar doesn't cause dia betes. It's a popular belief that it does, but it doesn't. People with diabetes are careful to watch their sugar intake, and they watch their total carbohydrate in take, but diabetics don't have to eliminate sugar completely from their lives. Careful monitoring of sugar and carbohydrate intake is essential for their control of blood sugar. Type 1 diabetes, the kind that requires insulin for control, often has its onset in younger years. It's due to a destruction of the insulin-making cells of the pan creas. The destruction is believed to be the work of the immune system. Sugar has nothing to do with it. Type 1 diabetes accounts for 5 percent to 10 percent of all diabetes cases. Type 2 diabetes, the much more common kind, comes about from a decline in insulin production along with a decline in the effectiveness of insulin. Ninety percent of Type 2 diabetics are overweight, and weight loss helps them control their blood sugar. Physical inactivity also contributes to Type 2 dia betes. So do genes. Again, it's not the sugar intake that produces this common type of diabetes. But moni toring the intake of sugar is important for control of this variety of diabetes. The booklet on diabetes presents this illness and its treat ments in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue No. 402W, Box 536475, Or lando, FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE: I think I may have the illness where a person pulls out clumps of hair. I'm not sure of the name. I find I do this after I have caffeine. I have been off caffeine for 25 years, and I do not pull my hair out. I thought this might be helpful to others. K.H. ANSWER: The name of the condition is trichotillomania (TRICK-oh-TILL-uh-MAYknee-uh). Between 4 million and 11 million Americans have it. It's called an impulse disorder. I had n't heard about a caffeine con nection. If this holds true for others, they will deeply appreciate your advice. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You recently wrote that Ex cedrin with caffeine en hances pain relief. I believe that often the cause of headaches is withdrawal from caf feine. Another inference of this fact is to wean oneself from caffeine when trying to kick the habit. B.B. ANSWER: You're right. One of the withdrawal symptoms from going cold turkey off some what-heavy caffeine consump tion is headache, particularly migraine headache. I'm right. Caffeine is a mild painkiller that increases the painkilling capacities of other analgesics when incorporated into the same tablet as those analgesics. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

It doesn't involve getting more exercise or eating certain foods. It doesn't include doing puzzles. We only need to grab a book and start flipping pages. Emory University did a study that showed how there are "quantifiable changes" in brain activity when participants read a book. Granted it was a bit more regimented than just grabbing your favorite author's latest best seller. In the study, participants were given a baseline brain scan each day for a few days. Then they were given the thriller "Pom peii" by Robert Harris with in structions to read 30 pages a night. Each morning they were given another brain scan. After the book was finished (about nine days), they were given more scans to see how the brain reacted. Re-searchers were able to track which portions of the book the participants were reading and correlate them to the brain scan images. Here's what they learned: During reading, and for days afterward, there were significant activity increases in the parts of the brain associated with story comprehension, as well as pro cessing language. According to the study, the reading has to be fiction to get these brain connectivity changes, something with a nar rative that describes events un folding, a story we can identify with. Here's my thinking: While researchers don't know yet how long these brain changes last after reading a novel, it's at least five days. Perhaps we should spend some time in 2014 rereading the novels that had an impact on us, as well as new narrative fiction and a few of the old classics. The reference li brarian is sure to be a good source for book suggestions.

I am never to forget the night that I married D umpling. We were so in love that night. You could feel it in the air, for a while anyway. However, I had borrowed a forklift to get her over the threshold. When I got on the forklift and revved up the old engine, hee-hee-hee was all Dumpling could say. She does that when she is having a good time, you know. After trying three times, and having to put Dumpling back on after she had rolled off the forklift, well finally I completed the mis sion. But unfortunately I had bent one of the forks when Tee-Hee ha d rolled off of it and bent the axle when I rolled over her twice. But now we knew that we would not be able to travel up to Haines City the next morning, because of the repair bills on the forklift. I hated that because Dumpling had really wanted to go up there because she had never been that far North before. But she was a good sport about it though. She slept all day and night and part of the next day. When she finally woke up some 36 hours later, she asked me to serve her breakfast in bed. These two elderly gentlemen are found talking in the nursing home, perhaps tossing a small dab of gossip while they were at it. When one says, yes, Jim, there is no doubt about it. We know as well as everybody else knows, that Emily truly was in love with Brad and Brad loved her, too. But dog-gone it, she broke up with Brad and married Hollis because he had a far better hospital insurance policy than Brad. Now aint that something. Do you remember that blockbuster movie that came out in the 1940s entitled The Thin Man. However, they just released to movie-goers a few days ago how much money the Thin Man had on him all through this film production and the amount was he did not have one thin dime on him. Have you ever heard of a woman who was hired to be a hit man, I mean a hit woman? And while we are at it, have you ever heard of a woman pallbearer? The spice in life which keeps it so interesting are those unexpected moments, be them good or bad. M y pal, the one we call Murph for Murphys Law, you know anything that can go wrong does go wrong. Well anyway, he told me on the phone that when his wife left him last year it left him a wreck, an emotional jawbreaker, but that he feels a little better now, and his billfold is coming along nicely, and the trustees at the bank said his banking and savings are expected to make a full recovery, so all it not lost. Since the beginning time man indeed has always dared the world around him, like a beast of the field, the rough forest and jungle alike. He and he alone has conquered the inhabitation of the earth and now reaches out to the universe and beyond. But hold it there, men. There is still and yet down here something you will never conquer, Cloud Riders, and she comes in the form called woman. The first woman to ever exist betrayed him, Adam. And the strongest man Samson to ever dwell on Mother Earth was done under by a woman called Delilah. And the most prolific bank robber John Dillenger was tripped up by the lady in the red dress. So Supen Man may I humbly suggest that perhaps you lay down in a hammock tied to two trees and sorta think things over. What do you say, pal? Truman A.

Playing in their final games are (left to right) Gustavo Toledo, Ricardo Vera, Luis Quiros, Daniel Villagran, Ruben Sandoval and Ezequiel Perez. DEAR PAW'S CORNER: M y friend adopted a little mixed terrier that he named "Jessie." She must have come from an abusive situation be cause she trembles terribly, barks and sometimes pees whenever anyone but my friend tries to interact with her. I always thought I could get along with any dog, but Jessie is terrified of me. What can I do to make friends? Casey in Sioux City, Iowa DEAR CASEY: Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to make friends with other people's pets. Temperament and the dog or cat's early environment can play big roles in how they interact with others outside their perceived family unit. Jessie might not have come from an abusive situation; it could be that she wasn't social ized correctly. And if she was just dumped at the shelter (or who knows where else), she could have been traumatized by being abandoned. It's a sad and tough situation, but it sounds like your friend is giving her great care, and they have bonded. Don't get frustrated if Jessie doesn't take to you immediately. Always give her a friendly "hello" when you come in. If she backs away or gets nervous when you reach out to pat her, pull back calmly. She eventually may come to you to sniff your hand or your ankle stay calm and say nice, soothing words. If she sniffs your hand without backing away, try gently running your hand along her jawline to her ear, and scratch her ear gently. Don't try to pat the top of her head, and don't press your face into hers many dogs react negatively to these motions. It could be weeks or months before Jessie allows you to pet her, or maybe never. But give her time and space to feel confident and safe enough to let you in as well. Send your questions or advice to ask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. Paw s Corner By Sam Mazzotta Lake Placid on Monday in a ha rd-fought battle. Each team had 14 shots on goal, but Lake Placids strong defense would not let Hardee goals get by. Hardee lost 3-0. Hardee played well together for the first match after Christmas break. Our defense played well, commented Head Coach Dennis Aubry. It was also a tough go at DeSoto last Thursday. DeSoto had 18 shots on goal to just five for Hardee. DeSoto was quick and passed well. They played long passes from the back of the defense. Hardee was offsides nine times as DeSoto played the offsides-trap well, reported Aubry. DeSotos three scores came on a near perfect long shot in the second quarter and twice in the third quarter on a pass-back and a deflection, added Aubry. Last week ended with another battle against Bulldogs, this one against Frostproof. With both teams in a rebuilding year after losing more than 10 players apiece from graduation, it was an even-steven game. Har-dee had more shots on goal, 18 to 10, but Frostproof won 3-2. Hardee played better with quick passes and team move ment than in the near past. We are still having trouble finishing. Manuel Palacios scored in the first quarter on a header from a corner kick by Eduardo Lopez and again on a breakaway in the fourth, concluded Aubry. Joining Palacios and Lopez in district playoffs next week are seniors Gustavo Toledo, Luis Quiros, Ricardo Vera, Daniel V illagran, Ruben Sandoval and Ezequiel Perez, along with fel low underclassmen Agustin Toldeo, Frederick Torres, Gustavo Salazar, Luis Castillo, Alexis Arenas, Rodrigo Rodriguez, Santiago Ramos and Mario Bautista. Playing this week in their final JV game were Rogelio Reyna, Francisco Vargas, Ani-ceto Estrada, Victor Rogas, Cha Lor, Johnny Saldivar, Francisco Salgado, Adrian Santiago, Ignacio Carreno, Ricardo De-Santiago, Andreas Hernandez, Adrian Briones, Julian Galvez, Ben Tamayo, Abelardo Villar-real, Fernando Nunez, Jose Padillo, Rodrigo Rojas, Marco Torres, Esperandieu Alfred, Jose Gon zalas and Fabian Perada.

At the end of the meeting, Chairman Thomas Trevino congratulated the administration for helping to keep the clinics in schools open. Now no school will be left without a nurse. An elementary school teacher also asked board members about getting extra technology for students from kindergarten through second grade in all schools. She was worried that students in these grades sometimes get over looked since they do not take the Florida Comprehensive Assess ment Test until the third grade. Trevino assured her that Deputy Superintendent Bob Shayman would be notified of the concerns so he could determine what could be done. The next School Board meeting will be on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 5 p.m. in the board meeting room at 230 S. Florida Ave. in Wauchula.

When he died, a chauffeur led the funeral procession to the cemetery in his vehicle. Even though the burial service was brief, someone had time to steal his car while the mourners bowed their heads in prayer. Realizing what had happened, a friend said, I guess you cant be too careful even at your own funeral. You never know what might happen after you die. But we can know without a doubt what will happen after we die. We know that God loves us and that we are very dear to Him. We also know that a car can take us many places, but not to heaven. Only our faith in the Lord can do that. When He calls us home to heaven, if our faith is in Him, He will bring us into His presence and we will enjoy eternity with Him forever.

Your Business Could Appear Here!Nancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce DanielsThe Herald Advocate 773-3255www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com By CHIP BALLARD For T he Herald-Advocate Marcus Ezelle and I were dorm mates at the University of South Florida in Tampa. Our rooms were directly across the hall from each other, and often our doors stood open. As I listened to Elvis and Orbison, read Hemingway and Wolfe, made up tall tales and wrote stories, Marcus listened to classical music, studied political science and read law books. I had great respect for him and knew he would go far. Today, Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle covers Hardee, Polk and Highlands counties. To say his schedule keeps him busy is understatement. But Ezelle has mastered busy and, like all masters, makes it look easy. He never appears in a rush nor is he ever in too much of a hurry to stop in a store or on a street corner to speak and inquire of ones family and mutual acquaintances. This pace has provided the judge with longevity and earned respect from his community. Ezelle was elected Hardee County judge in 2000. In 2006, he was elected a circuit judge for the 10th Judicial Circuit of Florida. He lives in Wauchula, and is the first resident circuit judge elected from Hardee County. Hardee County is still a place where you know most people, how they are related, what they do for a living, and what they like and dislike, he describes. The Ezelle family has a long history of elective service. His father, Curtis, was Hardee County tax collector for 48 years. Ezelle says he is inspired by his fathers generation for living through the Great Depression and World War II. Many of that generation I have talked with said it was the Depression more than the war that made them tough, Ezelle notes. The courthouse is familiar territory to Ezelle and the fact he works there is no surprise because he has been going there all his life. Because my father was county tax collector, I grew up playing at the courthouse, riding bicycles and climbing trees, he says. I could step through a window in the collectors office on the second story onto a ledge, balance myself to reach a tree, and then climb to the first floor to get a Coke without getting caught! Observing Ezelle at work in the courtroom is eavesdropping on an artist. His courtroom is his canvas; the case before him his subject. The attorneys, witnesses, and parties in court are the nuances of color and conflict. The law books he knows so well are his paints. His brushes are his keen instincts and understanding of human nature and the human condition. Born and raised in Wauchula, Ezelle is a sixth generation Floridian. He was born in 1952 and was graduated from Hardee Senior High School in 1970 taking the American Legion Award. He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in classics, emphasis in Latin and Greek, in 1974 from the University of South Florida in Tampa. He attended Mercer Universitys Walter F. George Law School, where he took his law degree in 1978. He was winner of the Sun Trust Estate Planning Award for Georgia, 1978, and the chairman of Law Day, 1978. Before his election as judge, Ezelle practiced wills, trusts and estate-planning law. He is a former member of the 10th Circuit Judicial Nominating Commission, trustee of South Florida Community College and the Hardee Memorial Hospital Board. He is a Take Stock in Children mentor and a former board member of Hardee Habitat for Humanity. Ezelle and his wife, Carol, who teaches science at Hardee Senior High School have two sons and one daughter. Each is a member of All Saints Episcopal Church in Lakeland. Judge Ezelle says his judicial philosophy is simple, Give parties the respect they are due and follow the law. He cites U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts statements: Nobody ever went to a ball game to see the umpire, and Umpires dont make the rules but apply them, as good judicial perspective. Before he was elected a county judge in 2000, Ezelle was in private practice for 22 years. His professional activities in those years include a partnership with Burton, Evers & Ezelle. He has also served as an assistant public defender and was city attorney for Wauchula, the city of Bowling Green and the town of Zolfo Springs. Among Judge Ezelles civic responsibilities were president of the Wauchula Kiwanis Club, a member of the Hardee County Industrial Board, member of the Hardee Memorial Hospital Board, South Florida Community College Board of Trustees and Hardee Habitat for Humanity Board of Directors. He also has been involved in Take Stock in Children as a mentor since 2001. With all that, one wonders how Ezelle finds time for anything else, but hes also busy with hobbies. He enjoys reading, walking and traveling. Occasionally, he says, someone invites him to go hunt a turkey. Emphasizing the fact that he is not a hunter, he admits to occasionally accepting the invitation. My primary interest is travel, he says. When time and budget permit, I see World War II sites in England, France and Germany. My last trip was a return to the D-Day beaches in Normandy, where my father landed on June 6, 1944. I have also visited Buchenwald concentration camp near Weimar. Currently, he is reading The Coming of the Third Reich, The Eight Pillars of Greek Wisdom and Epictetus Maxims not exactly light fare. Ezelle is old enough to remember the segregated signs at the restrooms and water coolers at the courthouse. In his chambers he keeps an old brass spittoon, salvaged and polished, from the old courthouse prior to the renovation. Some things improve with time. Most people would agree Judge Marcus Ezelle has withstood that test fine, thank you.

Richard O., Summerfield, Fla. A: The Hallmark Channel has renewed the phenomenally suc cessful series, which is based on the book series of the same name by Debbie Macomber, for a second season. The show's first season made Hallmark Channel the No. 1 cable channel for Saturday nights during the 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. time slot. With internationally renowned ac tress Andie MacDowell leading the cast which in cludes Dylan Neal, Teryl Rothery, Bruce Boxleitner, Barbara Niven and Brennan Elliott season two of "Cedar Cover" promises more of the same drama, romance and fun. There is no word on the premiere date yet, but I'd start looking for it this summer. And of course, I'll let you know as soon as I know exactly when it will return. Q: Would you know anything about the fantastic TV series "24" with Kiefer Southerland? I thought they were bringing it back, or at least making a movie. Dick W., via email A: I did report on this about six months ago, but since this is such a hot subject I get tons of letters from readers asking me the same question I'll write about it again, with some new in formation to pass along. Fox is indeed airing a new version of "24," which is called "24: Live Another Day." This go 'round, it will be a 12-part series but will still cover the requisite 24 hours. Kiefer will return, as will Mary Lynn Rajskub, William Devane and Kim Raver. Kiefer recently told the press that the series will take place in London, stating: "'24' has always had such a global sensibility, but to be able to tell this intense '24'style story with the beauty of Eu rope's history and architecture as the backdrop is going to be fascinating." Fox's entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly teased reporters that the show's pickup intrigued many industry stars. "A lot of who's who in Hollywood wanted to participate in this," he re vealed. Be on the lookout for "24: Live Another Day" this May on Fox. Q: Please tell me that Animal Planet will be airing another "Puppy Bowl" this Super Bowl Sunday!

Oasis RV News By G eorgianna Mills Week Ending: January 12 2014 W eather Summary: Most of the State reported below one inch of rain this week, with the exception of Indian River (Indian River County) with 3.64 inches and three FAWN locations reporting between 2.00 and 2.89 inches, according to Floridas Auto-mated Weather Network (FAWN). Maximum temperatures ranged from the 50s to the 80s, with the highest temperature in Sebring (Highlands County) at 85 degrees. Hard freezes were felt into central Florida. The lowest temperatures in the State were 14 degrees in Jay (Santa Rosa County) and Defuniak Springs (Walton County). Field Crops: Farmers in the northern part of the State were completing the harvest of soybeans. Planting of oats, wheat, rye, and winter grazing was ongoing. Jackson County reported a small amount of damage to winter oats due to frost. Rain was beneficial to earlier plantings. Sugarcane harvest proceeded as scheduled in Hendry, Palm Beach, and Glades counties. Fruit and Vegetables: Cabbage and potatoes were being planted in Flagler County. Farmers in Manatee County began planting tomatoes. Cold winds associated with the cold front battered vegetables crops in Charlotte, Collier, Hendry and Lee Counties required some replanting of okra, sweet potatoes, green beans, and strawberries. Vegetables and fruits marketed in the State included avocados, beets, cucumbers, cabbage, escarole, mustard, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, eggplant, squash, strawberries, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, snap beans, radishes, lettuce, kale, and a variety of spe cialty items. Citrus: Rain was light in most of the citrus area this week. All stations recorded at least a trace of precipitation. Five stations recorded an inch or more of rain. Indian River (Indian River County) recorded the most precipitation with 3.64 inches. Immokalee (Collier County) recorded the least with 0.05 inches measured. High tem peratures were in the upper 70s to lower 80s through most of the citrus growing area. Temperatures during the recent cold snap did not reach damaging levels in the citrus producing region. Growers and caretakers continued to irrigate due to dry conditions. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated January 7, 2014, abnormally dry conditions covered most of the Indian River and southern grow ing areas and portions of the northern and central areas. The western growing area remained drought free. Field workers reported small sizes on all varieties. Grove ac tivity included harvesting, hedging and topping after harvest, resetting of new trees, pushing of dead grove and replanting new citrus, mowing, fertilizing and psyllid control. Thirty-nine of 43 packinghouses had opened and had begun shipping small quantities of fruit. Sixteen of nineteen processing plants were open so far this season. Livestock and Pastures: The cattle condition across the State was primarily fair as was the pasture condition. Cattlemen were feeding hay and supplements across the State. Cold weather in the northern part of the State contributed to pasture decline. Drought was the main contributing factor for the decline in pasture condition in the southern part of the State. 5,469

Victoria L. Rogers Clerk of Circuit Court Hardee County, Florida AD No: 1 By: LAURA L. BARKER, Deputy Clerk Tax Deed File No.: 252013TD049XXXX Pursuant to F.S. 197.512 12:26-1:16c G G o o o o d d H H e e a a l l t t h h t t o o G G o o With the holidays behind us, w e're back to the hustle and bustle of the work week. For many of us, healthy habits seem to go out the window as soon as we step beyond our front door. When eating away from home, planning may be the most impor tant action a person can take when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. When stressed or rushed, many of us revert to our old, familiar habits. If those habits aren't healthy, that's when poor choices are made. Habits may include grabbing high-fat doughnuts, stopping at conven ient fast-food restaurants, eating larger portions or making after noon visits to the vending ma chine. Planning ahead provides a variety of healthy food choices and portion sizes that are satisfying. With a little thought, anyone can plan a healthy snack or meal-onthe-go to fit any situation. Use these as inspiration: Whole-wheat bagel, low-fat cheese, pear, water Fresh spinach, feta and cubed chicken (leftover from last night's dinner) in a whole wheat pita, grapes, skim milk Broth-based soup (pass on the cream soups), baked wheat crackers, apple Sliced turkey with low-fat dressing (skip the high-fat mayo) wrapped in a lettuce leaf, baked chips, fresh berries, iced tea Try these tips when you are away from home: If eating in the car is a trouble spot for you, make it a rule to only bring water in the car if you are traveling for an hour or less. If your weakness is stopping at convenience stores, fast-food restaurants or vending machines, put those on your "do not stop" list, or only order one item, like the grilled chicken, and bring the rest of your meal in a cooler. Lettuce, instead of a bun, wrapped around chicken or a burger is a tasty alternative. Make the local grocery store your food stop or get yourself a cooler where you keep a "stash" of healthy options energy bars, bottled water, nuts or fruit. Bring a healthy snack or lunch with you. Include some protein; it satisfies longer. With the apple, bring some peanut butter, cheese or nuts. Microwave popcorn (trans fat-free, of course) also is a great choice. Carrying lunch to work not only saves you money, you have Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis the added benefit of choosing what's healthiest for you! Take along healthy foods that travel well: Cottage cheese, vegetable sticks, yogurt, fruit, gra nola bars and nuts are great choices. Keep refreezeable ice packs in your freezer to throw in your cooler when transporting meat, dairy and cooked foods. Freeze 100 percent juice packs or, in a pinch, throw some ice cubes in a zipper-lock plastic bag. This recipe for Sweet Potato Hummus is a healthy snack to pack for the days when you're on the go. The orange flesh of the sweet potato gives away its betacarotene content. By serving this dip with whole-wheat pita and raw vegetables such as red peppers and broccoli, you'll also get selenium, vitamin C and sul foraphane. Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans are a good source of cholesterollowering fiber and help to pre vent blood-sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal. Chickpeas are high in protein and also promote slow burning of complex carbohydrates, thus increasing your energy by re plenishing your iron stores. Peanut butter adds a boost of protein and a creamy texture to the hummus. Divide the Hummus into serving-size containers along with several individual packages of vegetable sticks so you'll always have a nutritious snack to grab and go! SWEET POTATO HUMMUS *1/2 pound sweet potatoes (about 3 medium or 2 large) 1 can (15-ounces) chickpeas, reserve liquid 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/4 cup peanut butter 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons ground cumin 2 garlic cloves, chopped 8 dashes (about 1 teaspoon) hot sauce, or 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground pepper Whole-wheat pita and crudites such as red pepper, carrots, celery and broccoli 1. Wash and microwave sweet potatoes on high until tender when pierced with a fork, about 10 to 12 minutes. Meanwhile, combine chickpeas, lemon juice, peanut butter, oil, cumin, garlic, hot sauce or crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper in the food processor. Puree, about 1 minute. 2. Carefully scoop out the flesh of the cooked sweet pota toes and place into the food processor. Puree about 2 minutes, or until smooth. Thin with the reserved chickpea liquid or water, if necessary. Refrigerate, in an airtight container, up to 1 week. Serve with whole-wheat crackers or pita and vegetable sticks. Makes 2 cups. Use 1 (15-ounce) can of sweet potato puree, if desired.

My mother wants to know if it has any value, since she is thinking of disposing of it. Charlotte, Midland, MI A: Most older television sets seem to sell in the $150 to $300 range, but as with most collectibles there are always excep tions. Your DuMont televisionradio-phonograph combination is one of those exceptions. Manufactured in 1946, it is refer enced in "Antique Trader Radio and Television Price Guide" edited by Kyle Husfloen. Accord ing to Husfloen, your set is worth about $1,500. Q: I have a pair of Chelsea figurines and have been offered $600 for both. They are in perfect condition, and since I am close to retirement would like to sell the pieces. What is your advice? Isabel, Manchester, N.H. A: The Chelsea Porcelain Company was established during the mid-1700s in England and was known primarily for its production of intricate figurines. My advice is to contact a certified appraiser in your area for his or her expert opinion. The cost would be nominal, and an expert could answer your ques tion about current val ues. Recently, a woman from Delaware con tacted me through this column about "several old dolls." I gave her the same advice, to hire the services of an appraiser. She had been offered $500 for her four dolls. She had them appraised and was aston ished to discover they were worth a total of $6,000. Her appraisal cost her about $50 and was, according to her, one of the best investments she ever made. Q: Please give me an idea of what a couple of "Raikes Bears" are worth. They are a pair, a girl and a boy, dressed and in new condition. They are approximately 25 years old. Lucy, Los Ranchos, N.M. A I am not sure which bears you have. I did find "April and Johnnie Bear" manufactured in 1993 on eBay, and this might be like or similar to the ones you have. The set on eBay were being offered for $28.
