See MAN, 812A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A former city commissioner and funeral director has avoidedprison and been sentenced to alengthy probation followingcharges he defrauded a numberof clients. Troy Brant, 47, who once owned and operated Brant Fu neral Home and had served onthe Wauchula City Com-mis sion, was arrested on April 25,2012. The Wauchula Police De partment charged him with 22criminal counts. Investigators had alleged he collected money for pre-need fu neral arrangements and thenspent it to keep his businessafloat and for personal pur chases. Brant, a respected mem ber of the community at thetime, primarily victimized theelderly, they said, sometimes forthousands of dollars. But in negotiations with the prosecution, Brant and defenselawyer Brandon Rafool agreedto a change of plea from “notguilty” to “no contest” to avoida jury trial. In exchange, Assis tant State Attorney David Wardagreed not to prosecute 21 of the22 charges against Brant. Brant was sentenced on the single remaining count ofscheming to defraud $50,000 ormore. In imposing a penalty in Hardee Circuit Court, CircuitJudge Marcus J. Ezelle placedBrant on supervised probationfor a period of 10 years. Further,the judge assessed $6,665 infines, court costs and fees.

With the filing of the first-de gree murder charge, Jaimes innow being held without bond. Wauchula Police Chief John Eason in November said Riveratook her baby to the EmergencyRoom at Florida HospitalWauchula at about 7 in the morn ing on Nov. 5. “He was unresponsive. His color had changed,” Eason re lated. “The nursing staff de scribed his color as bluish-gray.” Emergency Room staff attempted to resuscitate the baby,but were unsuccessful. Then, “due to the nature and amount of injuries observed bythe ER staff,” police were calledand an investigation into the 15-month-old’s death began, thechief noted. Eason said an autopsy was conducted on the baby that sameday. “This exam revealed numer ous severe injuries to (Joel’s)body,” he continued. The Med ical Examiner’s Office termedthe death as a homicide by headtrauma. Coordinating its investigation with the Florida Department ofLaw Enforcement, the State At torney’s Office and the state De partment of Children & Families,the Wauchula Police Departmentordered medical examinations offive other children who were liv ing in the same house. Eason explained that two fam ilies resided in the Town-sendStreet home: Rivera, boyfriendJaimes and her three children;and a husband and wife alongwith their three children. It was then that the 2-1/2-yearold boy allegedly exhibited sim ilar injuries, and the initial arrestsof Rivera and Jaimes were made.

Slow economic growth across the globe has curbed the oil rallyand helped fuel prices movelower. According to the govern ment, U.S. manufacturing fell toits lowest level in six months.Consumer sentiment also de creased, according to a Thom son Reuters/University ofMichigan report. "The good news is gas prices are stable and there is nothing, atthis moment, that shows signs ofa spike in price,” said JessicaBrady, AAA spokesperson, TheAuto Club Group. “Pump pricesare likely to inch lower againthis week.” The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gaso line is $3.28, one cent less thanlast week. Florida's average of$3.33 fell two cents from lastweek.MAN, 81Continued From 1A He maintained that position forhours. The major said Sheriff Arnold Lanier and deputies at the scenemade numerous attempts to getthe armed man to leave his bed room and come out of the house.He refused, Dey said. As hours passed, the sheriff’s tactical unit sent tear gas into thebedroom in an attempt to forceBarncord from the house. Onegas canister, sent into a window,was followed by a gunshot fromwithin the bedroom, Dey al leged. The man had fired a round through the window and towarda sheriff’s detective, breaking theglass but not striking the officer,Dey charged. The detective described feel ing “the shock wave of the blaston his arm,” a report noted. Dey alleged Barncord contin ually threatened to kill thedeputies. Eventually, however, the tear gas forced him from the resi dence. Barncord was taken to Bay Pines Veterans AdministrationMedical Center in St. Peters-burg for evaluation, Dey said. Noone in the home or any respond ing officer was harmed in the in cident, he added. A search warrant was executed at the house afterward, Dey said.It allegedly revealed a loadedGlock .40-caliber handgun inBarncord’s bedroom, along witha number of other firearms. Dey said at the time that once Barncord was released from thehospital, he expected criminalcharges would follow. An arraignment date in Hardee Circuit Court is being set. BarncordBRANTContinued From 1A protection fund run by theFlorida Department of Fin-ance’s Division of Funeral,Cemetery & Consumer Ser-vices. Those reimbursementswere made later in 2012, theWauchula Police Department re ported. Brant had been booked into the Hardee County Jail on aWednesday. Judge Ezelle thenordered Brant to prove anymoney he would use to postbond was not gained from his il legal activities. Brant did so, and posted a $130,000 surety bond to gain hisrelease from custody on Fridayof that same week. He had owned and operated Brant Funeral Home at 404 W.Palmetto St. in Wauchula from 2003 to 2010. During that time, he sold pre-arranged funeralservices to various customersthroughout the community, mostof them elderly. Monies paid for the service contracts were to be placed intoa trust fund as required byFlorida State Statutes. Wauchula police said that did not occur. Instead, Brant de posited the funds into checkingaccounts and used the cash tocover routine business bills andto pay for personal expenses. As his business struggled, Brant was unable to renew hisstate-issued pre-need sales li cense, but continued to sell pre-need arrangements to customersin violation of the law, policesaid. During that time period, how ever, Brant won public office,serving as a Wauchula city com missioner from November of2004 to August of 2008. Discrepancies in funeral con tracts started to surface afterBrant Funeral Home closed in2010 and a new funeral homeoperator opened in the same lo cation. Brant moved fromWauchula to Jacksonville. The Florida Board of Funeral & Cemetery Services began aninvestigation into alleged licens ing violations. Mean-while, theWauchula Police De-partmentinitiated a probe into possiblecriminal violations. As part of that probe, then-de tective Jimmy Harrison traveledto Jacksonville to interviewBrant. There, he admitted de positing the money into checkingaccounts rather than the trustfund. He explained that he usedthe money to support his busi ness, “but never intended to hurtanyone.” Brant told police he “believed he could cover” the funerals asthey arose. Meanwhile, Allison Karnes of Ponger-Kays-Grady, the new fu neral home located at theWauchula site, offered to assistvictims of Brant’s scheme. Shepledged her funeral home wouldhonor the prices originallyagreed upon in Brant pre-needcontracts, giving victims a breakon today’s pricing. Brant

It is believed the hogs were brought to Florida by Spanish ex plorers Ponce de Leon in 1521 or Hernando deSoto in 1539. Wildhogs are found in all of Florida’s 67 counties and in at least 35 statesin the U.S. Hogs love acorns and will eat almost anything including dead animals, oranges, roots, seeds, seedlings, snakes and will even preyon ground-nesting wildlife. They compete for food with native gameanimals such as deer, squirrels and turkeys. They are often considered a nuisance and will damage agricul tural crops. Hogs generally breed when they are a year old and canproduce two litters a year, often 5 to 7 piglets, s ometimes less or more. Their lifespan is about 8 years. Hogs can carry diseases, but are generally safe and good to eat if cleaned and cooked properly. ——— Kristi Patel adopted a little sick black-and-white kitten Jan. 28.

It seems the ordinance needed changes in its language to be inline with the city’s Land Devel opment Code and other ordi nances. The six-page Ordinance 201402 will have first reading atMonday’s monthly City Com mission meeting and will havethe second, and final, reading atthe March 10 commission meet ing. Very little has changed in the city code on the hours alcoholcan be sold or consumed in thecity. The original ordinance wasapproved in 2001 and modifiedin 2009. The terms of the ordi nance are enforced by the localpolice department. Alcoholic beverages, includ ing wines and beers can only besold by a business with a validlicense under the state Depart-ment of Business Regulations’division of alcoholic beveragesand tobacco. In the city limits, sale of such beverages is prohibited between1 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sundaysand between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m.on the other days of the week. Anyone with a beverage licensecannot sell alcohol during thosehours even if the business isopen for another reason. Any establishment solely in the business of selling alcoholicbeverage, be it a bar, saloon,pub, lounge, package store orentertainment center, shall closeand lock its doors other than fireexits and outside lights shall beturned off. Customers will have30 minutes from the closingtime to finish consumption of analcoholic beverage and vacatethe building. For a business selling goods other than alcoholic beverages,all alcoholic beverages shall besecured so a customer cannotobtain them. Hours for the legalsale of alcoholic beverages shallbe posted in a conspicuous andlegible manner. All drinks con taining alcoholic beverages shallbe removed from the tables andbars within 30 minutes after theordinance’s stated times. The updated ordinance allows the commission to de-cide nolater than the second Monday ineach December the hours of saleof alcoholic beverages on NewYear’s Eve. Any business established after July 1, 1999 may not sell alco holic beverages within 500 feet of a public or private elemen tary, middle or secondaryschool. Once a business stopsfor at least six months, it is nolonger eligible for the pre-1999exception. The 500 feet is meas ured following the shortest routeof ordinary pedestrian travel be tween the business and a school. An exception is a restaurant which derives at least 51 percentof gross revenue from the sale offood and nonalcoholic bever ages. No person may consume or possess an open container of al coholic beverage on the streets,roads or right-of-ways in the citylimits. A person may also notpossess an open container of al cohol in the parking lots or otherareas outside buildings sellingalcoholic beverages. An opencontainer is one on which theseal has been broken and whichcan immediately be consumed. There is a provision for any one 21 or older to possess orconsume an alcoholic beveragewithin an approved area once aSpecial Event approved by thecity. The person drinking is tostay within the special designa tion area and not wander ontothe streets of the community. Wauchula Updates Alcohol Rules VALENTINE’S DAY CHOCOLATE FONDUE! This week’s column is written by Alyssa Henderson, lieutenant ofFire Prevention at Hardee County Fire-Rescue. She brings us a hol iday tip! Happy Valentine’s Day! Yes, it’s that mooshy-gooshy time of year when greeting card and chocolate companies make a killing! Iam pretty sure St. Valentine had stock in both Hall mark and Hershey’s. So, what does Valentine’s Day have to do with the fire depart ment? Well, in reality, not a whole heck of a lot, but it reminded meof a “Friends” episode. For those of you “Friends” fans out there, Ialways enjoyed the episode from Season 1 where all the girls weresingle for Valentine’s Day and, at the suggestion of P hoebe, decided to do a ritual to break their relationship bad luck. So, they start burning items from past relationships. Well, as it usually does in TV-land, one thing turned into another and, whoosh,the apartment catches on fire. In the end, the girls ended up gettingdates with the hunky firemen who responded. Of course, ladies, please do not try this at home! I can assure you it most likely will not result in a date. Since we also have somefemale firefighters, this goes for men, too. Given that I don’t have any brilliant words of wisdom, besides not setting anything on fire in the name of breaking bad luck, Ithought I would share my Valentine’s Day Chocolate Fondue rec-ipe. It’s simple, elegant and delicious. I mean come on — who does n’t like chocolate! Valentine’s Day Chocolate Fondue Ingredients: 16 oz. Chocolate — milk, dark or semi-sweet — broken into small pieces. (Use Ghirardelli Chocolate, I promise you won’t bedisappointed. It’s far better than anything else.) ** -Pint Whipping Cream -Cup Caramel Topping 3 Tablespoons Hazelnut Syrup or Hazelnut Liqueur Directions: Place all ingredients into a ceramic fondue pot over low heat. I have a mini-Crockpot I use, but I am sure you could do this in a pan,too, and transfer to a bowl. Just be careful to not burn it. Stir all ingredients together until the mixture is melted and smooth. Do not allow to bubble. Arrange an assortment of bite-sized dipping foods, such as strawberries, bananas, apples, cherries, pound cake, brownies,marshmallows, Rice Krispies and cheesecake. Spear food with fondue forks or wooden skewers, dip, swirl and enjoy! ** Side Note: I usually mix milk chocolate and semi-sweet choco late. I think it’s a nice balance, but if you like one type of chocolatemore than the other, use it.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A In Loving Memory Happy Birthday Daddy Richard J. Dease February 6, 1922 –January 5, 2013 As I honor my Father on what would have been his 92nd birthday,I find myself remembering things he said or did. I remember timesspent with him and know these memories are a precious legacy ofmy father, and his strength and love. I realize his parting was notthe end of our relationship, only an interruption. The depth of painof losing my father is indescribable, but I find peace in knowingthat sorrow does not last forever but memories and love do. Thispast year I have noticed how I have picked up from him hisuniqueness in things I do or say. That is the sad reward for lovinghim so well and so deeply. I have found that one who loves deeplywill weep deeply. I know the tears I have shed are tears of lonelinessthat say, “I love you and I miss you.”And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and thereshall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neithershall there be any more pain. —Revelations 21:4 KJV I Love You Daddy, Susie Q 2:6p of Wauchula Welcomes Christopher Hanchey To the Alan Jay Sales Team Come in and see Christopher for all your automotive needs! $!*',)*'&)#%(%.+%(% !)-#!',)*'&)#%(%.$'*! + 1031 U.S. HIGHWAY 17 N., & ,",$ (863) nn(863) n 2:6c Don’t Be Shy, Join In On The Adventure!FOR RESERVATIONSCall Trey 863-832-2102or email kuleanaadventures@gmail.compeaceriveradventures.com 2:6c FitnessOn ThePeaceSat., February 22 Peace River Paddle Sports and Kuleana Adventures will beteaming up with Karen Mirlenbrink C.S.C.S., PMA-CPT tocreate an exciting day of fitness.

The 3,000 seniors,with an average age of 74, onlyhad to participate in a dozen orso training sessions lasting aboutan hour each to get years of gain. The study, done by Johns Hopkins University in Balti-more, was called the AdvancedCognitive Training for Inde-pen dent and Vital Elderly study, orACTIVE. Participants were di vided into four groups: three re ceiving training in memory(word lists), processing speed(identifying objects) or reason ing (looking for number pat terns), plus a group who didn'tget any training. They weretested at intervals of one, two,three, five and 10 years. Morethan half got additional trainingto increase the effects. The results: Memory gains seemed to drop off after fiveyears, but processing speed andgains in reasoning ability stillwere evident 10 years later.Compared to those who didn'tget the training, participantswere more able to handle daily activities such as cooking,money and medications. More than 73 percent of those who'd had reasoning trainingstill scored above their pre-train ing levels. In processing speed,some 70 percent scored at orabove their pre-training levels.When it came to memory, how ever, the trained group and thecontrol group scored equally.

American Heart Month is celebrated in February of every year.Did you know that more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined? Research shows only 20 percent ofwomen identify heart disease as the greatest health problem facingwomen today and don’t take their risk of heart disease seriously —or personally. One in four women will die of heart disease. It’s a lifelong condition that can’t be cured, but it can be pre Fortunately, there are many risk factors for heart disease that can betreated or controlled, such as smoking, physical inactivity, obesity,high blood pressure and diabetes. Other risks that cannot be con trolled include: I Age. Most women with heart disease are 55 and older. Women have one additional risk factor that men don’t — estrogenproduction. Estrogen is a hormone that naturally occurs in awoman’s body that helps protect the heart. However, when a womanreaches menopause, typically around age 51, the body produces lessof this hormone. This can contribute to high cholesterol, high bloodpressure and weight gain. Fortunately, these conditions can be man aged. I Heredity. A person whose family member has heart disease has a higher-than-average risk. I Ethnicity. African-Americans are more likely to get heart dis ease. This is partly due to the higher rates of high blood pressure,obesity and diabetes in this group. Making small health and lifestyle changes may help reduce your risk of heart disease. The following tips, as well as working closely with your doctor, can help you keep your heart healthy and strong: I Maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Be sure to get regular cholesterol screenings. I Monitor your blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the heart’s workload. Check your blood pressure regularly and aimfor a reading of 120/80 or less. I Control your diabetes. If you have diabetes, work with your doctor to help manage this condition. I Don’t smoke. A smoker’s risk of developing coronary artery disease is two to four times greater than a nonsmoker’s. Within threeyears of quitting smoking, your risk drops to that of a nonsmoker. I Exercise. Physical activity can help control cholesterol, dia betes, obesity and blood pressure. It’s recommended that adults gettwo hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic ac tivity or one hour and 15 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aer obic activity, or a mix of the two. You should also includestrength-training exercises on two or more days of the week. Be sureto check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. I Eat healthfully. Include plenty of whole grains, fruits and veg etables. Avoid saturated and trans fats and sugar. The AmericanHeart Association recommends that you try to eat fish twice a week.Aim for less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium daily. If you drink,consume no more than one alcoholic beverage a day. I Keep a healthy weight. Being 20 percent or more overweight may cause high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. Ex ercise and eating healthfully can help you maintain or achieve ahealthy weight. I Work closely with your doctor if you’re already at high risk. If your doctor considers you to be at high risk, talk with him aboutspecial preventive strategies. Remember that the more risk factors you can keep under con trol, the less likely you are to have a future heart attack. No matterwhat your age — whether in your 20s or 60s — you can take mattersinto your own hands to help reduce your risk of heart disease. It’s never too late to live heart-healthy. Why not start now?

Butwith that said, let me tell you what Uncle Bill just did. He had him self a $30 million home built and has an outhouse — a toilet — out back of his new home, I guess in case some of his kin drop by likeme. ——— I made a little deal with Sugar Possum at the breakfast table this morning. I said if you will sweeten my coffee every morning, thenI will take the caffeine out of yours. Folks, it is not as innocent onmy part perhaps as it might sound. The reason I will be glad to takethe caffeine out of her coffee every morning is because after a coupleswallows of her coffee she starts her daily lectures for me. So if Ican take the caffeine out maybe it will be a lot more fun for me. ——— What is so amazing is that we can spell numbers such as one, two, three and so on. But than try to spell letters of the alphabet. Youcan’t. You can only write each one down with a single letter like A,B, C, and so on. ——— And something else which is so very confusing to me. How can a judge give a defendant three life sentences when he knows the oldboy ain’t got but one? I guess he could leave one of them to his cell mate. Who knows? ——— The reason I did not listen to President Obama’s State of the Union Speech the other night was because I already knew the statewas in, even before he went on the air. ——— Despite the fact that my cousin, the one we all call Fingers be cause he has been in and out of the calaboose (this means jail) all ofhis life, he still despite all of this has got a heart of gold. I can assureyou that he would give you the shirt off of his back, but I would notwear it in public because the man who bought it might by and youmight have a difficult situation of how you happen to be wearinghis shirt. You know what I mean? ——— In making her daily gossip rounds, my mother-in-law Harpoon told one of my neighbors that President Ronald Reagan once saidthat singer Andy Williams’ voice was a national treasure but saidher son-in-law’s singing voice (mine) was not a national treasurebut a national disaster. But in regard to Harpoon, mothers-in-law alllove their sons-in-law in different ways. So Harpoon’s love for meis just a little different, wouldn’t you say? ——— I have learned through gut-wrenching experiences of my own that being in the right is certainly not always easy, especially whenyou are in the wrong. ——— Boys, remember while driving upon America’s highways that the life you save might be your mother-in-law. Now don’t that makeyou want to drive a little safer? Jokes & Philosophies By Truman A.

A: You just did, and I thank you for it. Regardless of the typeof portable electric heater youhave, it must be set up so thatthere is 3 feet of clearancearound it, and placed on a heat-resistant surface (bare floor, forexample, not carpet). Additionally, make sure that the outlet being used can handlethe amount of electricity thespace heater will draw. Don'tplug anything else into that out let. Consider replacing older space heaters. While I've seen manymodels built as long ago as the1950s that are very sturdy, theyoften do not meet current electri cal standards and can use a lotmore power than newer models,meaning higher electric bills. What's the best space heater to purchase? I'm not a fan of theclassic open-coil model, andthere are alternatives. For exam ple, an enclosed oil heater, whichlooks like a radiator on wheels,circulates heated oil througheach section and provides indi rect heat and a greater measureof safety. There are heaters thatfit inside a kitchen's kickspace,oscillating tower heaters, andheaters disguised as fireplaces orstanding vases. Portable heaters range in price from about $50 to several hun dred dollars, so take a look atseveral options both in the home-improvement store and online.Make sure any heater you con sider has the UL (UnderwritersLaboratory) label. Heaters withthermostat control can providegreater energy savings. And it'simportant to make sure you pur chase a heater that can handle thesize of the room where you'll useit the most. (Check the sizingchart on the heater's packaging.) HOME TIP: Plug your space heater directly into a wall outlet,not a power strip; if an extensioncord is needed, choose a heavy-duty cord of 14 gauge or larger.Send your questions or home tipsto ask@thisisahammer.com.

12A The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 DEER HUNT THROUGH MARCH 2 IN ZONE D! There’s one thing good to say about the second wave of seri ously cold temperatures that invaded the Sunshine State last week:It reminded us hunters that deer season is still going strong in partsof Florida. General gun season remains open on private lands in zones B and D through Feb. 23. And then if you don’t mind hunting with aprimitive weapon, Zone D’s late muzzleloading gun season runs aweek longer, until March 2. This unique late season, which occursonly in Zone D, was established to give hunters the chance to huntthe rut, which occurs from mid-January through February in the Pan handle. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is required to hunt during this season. On private land, hunters have the choice of using a muzzle loader, bow or crossbow. On wildlife management areas, this postseason is referred to as the archery/muzzleloading gun season. Hunters can use bows ormuzzleloaders but not crossbows, unless they possess a disabledcrossbow permit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must havethe $5 archery permit, and those using a muzzleloade r need the muz zleloading gun permit. The most common kinds of game to hunt during this season are deer and wild hogs. Only bucks may be taken (even i f you use a bow), and one antler must be at least five inches in length. If you’rehunting deer, make sure you have the $5 deer permit. On privateland, the daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deeron WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before youhunt. No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season. However, leashed dogs can be used to track a wounded deer if nec essary. And it’s important to note that no turkeys may be taken dur ing this season. You’re allowed to take deer and hogs over feeding stations on private land, but it’s illegal to do that on WMAs. Twelve of the WMAs in Zone D have a late archery/mu zzle loading gun season. If you plan to hunt any of ’em, you must havethe $26 management area permit as well.Ten of those areas don’trequire a quota permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apa-lachicola River, Beaverdam Creek, Blackwater, ChoctawhatcheeRiver, Econfina Creek, Escambia River, Point Washington, Tate’sHell and Yellow River WMAs. The two that do require a quota per mit are Chipola River and Perdido River WMAs. So if you’re not quite ready to give up on deer hunting, have no fear, ’cause February’s here! Grab your favorite primitive weapon and head over to Zone D, where the rut is still on!

Sports Update By Joan Seaman DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My mixed collie "Skipper"gets extremely nervous duringstorms and when constructionis going on outside — basicallyduring any unfamiliar noise.He cries and hides under thefurniture, and I'm unable toapproach him to comfort him.Is there anything I can do? — Anxious in Boise DEAR ANXIOUS: Talk to the veterinarian first, so that he orshe is aware that Skipper has ananxiety issue. Your vet can sug gest a few solutions, includinganti-anxiety medication andsome training and behavioraltechniques you can try. Many owners want to avoid medication for anxious pets, asthey're worried about the side ef fects. And in some cases, med ication does not resolve theproblem. Those are among thereasons owners are looking to al ternative solutions to treatinganxiety. Some swear by a homeopathic product called Bach's RescueRemedy, found in stores that spe cialize in herbal supplements (al though it's being sold more andmore in pet stores). About fivedrops of the product are added toa dog's water dish daily. Other owners combine home opathic supplements with othertherapies, such as playing musicspecifically composed to calmdogs during stressful events likethunderstorms. Or they put theirdog into a Thundershirt, a wrap around garment that exerts con stant, gentle pressure. No matter what therapy you choose, remember that the homeenvironment and your own emo tions can affect Skipper. Makesure his life has routine — samefeeding time, same walkingtimes, etc. When a stressful eventhappens, keep yourself calm andspeak in a soothing voice toSkipper.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 69-year-old woman, writ ing to you for information onprobiotics. After taking antibi otics for a sinus infection, I de veloped diarrhea and bloating.I had many tests and scans.Everything was OK. My symp toms continued. On my thirdvisit, they took a stool speci men, which showed yeasts. Thedoctor suggested I go to ahealth-food store and buy pro biotics. I did, and a miraclehappened: My diarrheastopped. Is yogurt consideredprobiotics? For how long andhow often should you take pro biotics? —N.A. ANSWER: Probiotics contain live microorganisms that pro mote health when eaten. Mi croorganisms are bacteria andfungi. The thought of swiggingdown bacteria or fungi might bea turnoff. However, these mi croorganisms are the good kind,not the kind that causes infec tions. They work for us. Probi otics can restore to the digestivetract the normal balance betweengood and bad germs. They alsoappear to have a stimulatory ef fect on the immune system. Probiotics come as tablets, cheeses, milk, yogurts, juicesand other drinks. The labels onthese products must say "live andactive cultures." The names ofthe organisms most often usedare lactobacillus, bifidobac terium and sacchromyces. Somebrand names of probiotics areCulturelle, Align, Floraster andthe yogurt Activia. Curbing diarrhea is only one use for these products. They'realso used for irritable bowel syn drome and other conditions. Yogurt is a probi otic if it contains livecultures. How longcan you take them?That's a question thatcan't be answered.The studies haven'tbeen done. The sideeffects from probi otics are few. Itseems to me that youcan use the yogurt probiotics for ever. The others are probablyequally safe for long-term use,but definite statements aren'tpossible. The labels on the prod ucts ought to tell you how longthey can be used and in whatdoses to use them. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I would like to comment on yourarticle on bed-wetting. I am 68and was a bed-wetter when Iwas little. It was during an erawhen children were supposedto be potty trained at youngages. I remember the ritualsmy parents went through tobreak me of this habit that, Isuppose, was embarrassing tothem. I eventually outgrew it. My first-born daughter also was a bed-wetter. I resolved not to make a big deal of it.Every morning we removedthe sheets and pjs, and washedher ... never harping about her"problem." She outgrew it.Two of her five children werebed-wetters, too. She neverdwelt on it. Perhaps bed-wetting has a genetic basis. Par ents ought not to grum ble and blame theirchildren. We should bethankful for such smallchallenges and for hav ing normal children. —S.B. ANSWER: Genes strongly in fluence bed-wetting. If one par ent was a bed-wetter, the childhas a 45 percent chance of alsobeing one. If both parents were,their child has a 75 percentchance of wetting the bed. Genesare a big factor. Bed-wetting is involuntary. The child is in no way responsi ble. In my opinion, punishing orhumiliating a child for wettingthe bed is child abuse.Dr. Donohue regrets that he isunable to answer individual let ters, but he will incorporate themin his column whenever possible.Readers may write him or re quest an order form of availablehealth newsletters at P.O.

Personally, and I know a lot of people who agree with me, the show really has found itscomedic stride this season, so Ihope they are able to get thenumbers they need for a third-season renewal.

We receivedone and seven-tenths inch ofrain, which was needed. Wehave such good weather inFlorida that my trumpet lily thatwas stung by the cold is alreadybudding out again. I appreciate all of you who called or let me know you couldnot find the news in last week’spaper. My computer showed itwent but they did not receive it.Rapid Systems just doesn’t al-ways work at my house, and thecompany even came out and putin a larger receiver. Most of us at Fort Green are looking forward to the sing atNorthside this Saturday. It be-gins at 6 but you better comeearly if you want a good seat.Gulf State and two other groupswill be singing. We had quite a number of vis itors at Fort Green Baptist lastSunday, and one of the goodthings about having a smallchurch is you know when youhave visitors! It was good to see Jessica Gill. I personally am so proud andthankful for her recovery. Shewas always a sweet girl. Herbridal shower was very nice andshe received many useful andbeautiful gifts. We always have a long prayer list, but Betty Waters did nothave a good last week. She re quired a blood transfusion anddoctor visits. Vicki Owens is inthe Sebring hospital with appen dicitis, which required surgery.David Williamson is in the Bar tow hospital. Please pray forthese and others you might beaware of that are sick. It is always good to see Jimmy and Randi Sasser atchurch. They are close enoughto home now so they can comemore often, and it is alwaysgreat to see the whole family. Trish Richey was honored with a surprise birthday party ather home last Friday night. Herfamily and friends kept the se cret well and she enjoyed cele brating the big 50. John and Essie Deer are en joying their daughter and herhusband’s visit from Alabama. Idon’t blame them for leaving thefreezing weather Alabama hasbeen having. Several of our regular men members left church immedi ately after Sunday School. Theywere going to wrestling in Lake land, and the trip included LeeChancey, Paul Adams, RandyDavis, Mike and son HunterDavis, and Brody Waters. Ithink this was all, and they hadpromised different ones theywould go the next time wrestlingcame to Lakeland. Some of themen just said they never figuredit would be on a Sunday and es pecially not when the SuperBowl was being played. The RA’s under the leadership of Daniel Duke will be campingat Hardee Lakes this Fridaynight. They always have a goodtime and quite often some of theolder men go over for the Friday night cookout and song and sto rytelling time. Brother Ed Howell will be preaching at Fort Green thiscoming Sunday. Quite a few people take ad vantage of the beautiful oldcemetery in Fort Green on thecorner of Hendry and MethodistChurch roads to rest under theold oak trees. Quite often therewill be someone there eatinglunch in their vehicle. Now, itwill be better as CF has gotten aslab poured and a well withpitcher pump put in for us. Apicnic table is in the works. Thewater is non-potable but is OKto wash or water flowers whenputting fresh ones in the ceme tery. There is a committee that plans workdays and quite a fewturn out to help. We always takebottled water to drink but havingwater to wash our hands will begreat. Maxine Albritton was at church last Sunday with her see ing-eye dog, which is a beautifulpoodle. Of course Roy was alsowith her! Mabel Williamson has enjoyed having her sister fromMiami spend the week with her.Mabel told me that they are theonly two and whenever some one is coming our way, her sistercatches a ride. My Mama usedto do that or else I went andpicked her up. Please pray for each other and our nation.

We had a beautiful basket of flowers in our sanctuary Sun-day morning in memory ofRufus Sasser. Rufus went hometo be with the Lord several yearsago but his memory is alwayswith his mother and family. Geraldine Floyd was at church last Sunday, havingmissed several. She said shehad the “crud” and had to taketwo rounds of antibiotics. It ishard to get over this illness thatis plaguing so many people. We were glad to see Betty Waters at church Sunday and, fi nally, Sherman is well enoughand feels like attending. John Alexander left for home last week. He is very faithful toattend our church when downvisiting his family, Mike andRoberta Alexander. Gary Oden told me that Gar nett Williams, 96 years young,said she was going to call me as she reads the news every week!A lady called me several weeksago with the last name ofYoumans wanting to know howto get in touch with PaulineWalker. Said I had writtensomething about the family andshe felt I could help her out asshe had lost her information! Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of GeneRoberts. He made his final jour ney last week. Charles Abbottsaid they were classmates. Most of you remember Jessica Gill. She had a bad car ac cident several years ago whenshe was on her way home fromwork and hit several cows. Shewas in the Lakeland hospital andin critical shape for quite sometime. The Lord really blessedher with a clear mind and recov ery. She finished school and lives on her own in Clearwater. Sheis going to be married and weare having a bridal shower forher at Fort Green on Feb. 3 at6:30 p.m. All of you who knowJessica are invited and churchmembers bring party food! Weall are so proud of the success ofJessica. Kyle and Keller Braxton have a big field near our church.Their rows are so pretty, but Iguess they should know how tofarm as their dad, Mike, alwayshas a good garden or field. Ithink it gets in your blood. Thatis why I notice the straight rows,etc. Makayla Chancey is taking college courses while in highschool. If a person is diligent,by the time they graduate fromhigh school they can have theirAA degree from the local col lege. She made the President’sHonor list, which is quite an ac complishment. Faye and Randall Davis, Norma Alejandro and EdithBassett enjoyed visiting John-mark and Amy Brown in De-Fu niak Springs. They visitedgranddaughter Rebeka Brown,and the ladies enjoyed seeingher dorm room at the BaptistCollege of Florida in Grace-ville. The family was very proud of Beka when she showed them apersonal letter she had receivedfrom the president of the collegeadvising her she was on thePresident’s List. He congratu lated her on her superb academicwork and said he, personally,was very appreciative of herstrong commitment to Christ. This college is very strict, and Grandpa Randy could not checkout her dorm room. Faye andEdith said it was very nice andher roommate was very pleasant We had a workday at Fort Green last Saturday, Jan. 25. Iforgot all about it as evidentlymost everyone else did. Therewere only about three familiesrepresented, and if the youth hadnot attended the work would nothave been completed. We dohave some good youth at FortGreen.

Back Back In In Time TimeA A V V a a l l e e n n t t i i n n e e f f o o r r Y Y o o u u r r H H e e a a r r t t I enjoy preparing dinner for my husband, especially for spe cial holiday meals. Since he hassome health issues, I try to makesure that the dishes I preparecontain ingredients that are nutri tious and delicious — and thatincludes almonds. Of all thethings to love about almonds,this one will really get your heartpumping: Research shows that adiet high in heart-healthy foodslike almonds can help to reducecholesterol levels. That's good news for just about everyone, as cardiovascu lar disease is the No. 1 cause ofdeath among men and women inthe U.S. Almonds also are one ofthe richest sources of vitamin E,a powerful antioxidant that helpsto reduce the risk of cancer andheart disease. A study publishedin the Journal of Nutrition foundthat consuming whole almonds,including the skin, doubles theantioxidant intake. Just 1 ounce (about 22 al monds) packs more protein thanan egg and more than 3 grams ofdietary fiber. This same portionprovides about 160 calories, andthe high protein content stavesoff hunger. Almonds also are arich source of riboflavin, magne sium, manganese and copper. Shelled almonds may be whole, sliced or slivered withskin on, or blanched with theskin removed. Look for dry-roasted almonds that contain noadditional ingredients such assugar or preservatives. Storethem in a tightly sealed containerin a cool, dry place to preventthem from going rancid or ab sorbing the odors of other foods.Refrigerated almonds will lastseveral months, and up to a yearfrozen.

Whidden and his force brought in another moonshine still Tuesday afternoon, which was taken in the Bee Branch section about 25 miles east of Wauchula. The complete still was brought in, consisting of coils and containers which were of approximately 120-gallon capacity and eight barrels of mash. An advertisement by Central Pharmacy reads: Dont Be Skinny: Amazing Gains of 5 to 12 pounds in a few weeks are often made by adding Yeast Vitamins and Iron (as contained in Vinol) to your diet. Vinol helps stimulate appetite, im-proves blood and nervous system. Vinol has helped thousands gain needed weight and energy. Vinol is delicious to take. Advertisements have been placed for Walt Disneys first full-length feature, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, on Sunday and Monday. It will be playing at the Royal Theatre and is described as a comedy, car toon and newsreel. Admis-sion is 10 cents for children and 25 cents for adults. There will be a continuous showing on Sunday starting at 3 p.m. In one adver tisement, Bashful is de-scribed as a romantic but tongue-tied wall flower who reaches a new high in blushes over his secret crush on Snow White. 50 YEARS AGO Hardee County Judge Clyde Maddox has announced he will seek re-election to the office he now holds. Maddox has served as county judge for the last two four-year terms, and altogether has served seven terms in the position. County commissioners, under the prodding of Commissioner Ralph Smith, voted Wednesday to add name signs to all major blacktop roads in the county. Hardee County commission ers, along with municipal lead ers and interested citizens, met with Polk County officials Wednesday afternoon to discuss the Polk County Dog Pound and the possibility of getting one for Hardee. 25 YEARS AGO A 40-year-old Wauchula man has been sentenced to 40 years in state prison for the murder of his girlfriend last summer. In a surprise move, Zolfo Springs long-term police chief resigned his post early Tuesday morning. Wilbur Vickery wrote in a brief letter of resignation that his decision was due to personal reasons and would be come effective immediately. The Hardee Lady Wildcats improved their record to 15-3 Tuesday night at Palmetto with a 55-41 victory over the Lady Tigers. 10 YEARS AGO A science teacher who developed the districts first aeronautics course and a custodian who likes to baby teachers were named Hardee Countys top teacher and school employee of 2004 in ceremonies Tuesday night. Susan Barton, of Hardee Senior High School, was hon ored as districtwide Teacher of the Year and Peggy Rodriguez, of Wauchula Elementary School, was recognized as School-Related Employee of the Year. A 19-year-old Zolfo Springs man was killed late Friday in a single-vehicle crash in rural Hardee County. Vicente Jaimes was driving northbound on TenMile Grade in his 1997 Chevrolet pickup when he failed to stop at the intersection with Crewsville Road. A fad which has invaded Hardee Junior High School is unwelcome there. Dean of Stu dents Gregg White said Friday that he has asked teachers to send any student with the forbid den snap, or jelly, bracelet to his office. There, he confiscates the plastic bracelet until a parent comes to pick it up.

Story 10A Deer Hunt Til March 2 . Column 12A By CYNTHIA KRAHL A Hardee County Grand Jury has handed up a murder indict ment against the boyfriend of a woman whose baby was pronounced dead by an Emergency Room doctor. Hector Tavera Jaimes, 24, of 310 W. Townsend St., Wauchula, has been charged with first-degree murder and ag gravated child abuse in the Nov. 5 death of 15-month-old Joel Jordan Chavez. Grand jurors delivered the indictment on Friday. After hearing testimony and evidence presented by the State Attorneys Office, jury members agreed there was sufficient cause to charge Jaimes with cap ital-felony murder and first-de gree-felony abuse. Their indictment alleges that between Oct. 1 and Nov. 5, Jaimes abused Joel to the point of causing great bodily harm, permanent disability or perma nent disfigurement. It further accused Jaimes of causing such trauma to the head and body of the baby between Nov. 4 and Nov. 5 to cause his death from a premed itated design. Jaimes and Kaycha Lynn Rivera, 22, the babys mother, are currently being held in the Hardee County Jail on other, but similar, charges. Both had been arrested on Nov. 6 on a felony count of child neglect after officers investigating Joels death allegedly discoSee MURDER 2A Man, 81, Accused Of Attempted Homicide A A f f r r i i c c a a n n H H e e r r i i t t a a g g e e F F e e s s t t S S a a t t u u r r d d a a y y Jaimes Boyfriend Charged In Babys Murder B y CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate An 81-year-old Wauchula man has been charged with the attempted murder of a sheriffs deputy following a January inci dent at his home. James Henry Barncord, of 3262 E. Main St., was booked into the Hardee County Jail on Friday afternoon. He was charged with attempted second-degree homi cide, a first-degree felony, and discharging a weapon into a dwelling or vehicle, a seconddegree felony. Barncord currently is being held without bond pending trial. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office said deputies had responded to a call on Wednesday, Jan. 8, at 4:36 p.m. saying Barncord was despondent, was armed with a gun and had refused to come out of his bedroom. He allegedly had threatened harm to himself or anyone who came to bother him, Dey said. See MAN, 812A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate A former city commissioner and funeral director has avoided prison and been sentenced to a lengthy probation following charges he defrauded a number of clients. Troy Brant, 47, who once owned and operated Brant Fu neral Home and had served on the Wauchula City Com-mis sion, was arrested on April 25, 2012. The Wauchula Police Department charged him with 22 criminal counts. Investigators had alleged he collected money for pre-need fu neral arrangements and then spent it to keep his business afloat and for personal pur chases. Brant, a respected member of the community at the time, primarily victimized the elderly, they said, sometimes for thousands of dollars. But in negotiations with the prosecution, Brant and defense lawyer Brandon Rafool agreed to a change of plea from not guilty to no contest to avoid a jury trial. In exchange, Assistant State Attorney David Ward agreed not to prosecute 21 of the 22 charges against Brant. Brant was sentenced on the single remaining count of scheming to defraud $50,000 or more. In imposing a penalty in Hardee Circuit Court, Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle placed Brant on supervised probation for a period of 10 years. Further, the judge assessed $6,665 in fines, court costs and fees.

With the filing of the first-degree murder charge, Jaimes in now being held without bond. Wauchula Police Chief John Eason in November said Rivera took her baby to the Emergency Room at Florida Hospital Wauchula at about 7 in the morn ing on Nov. 5. He was unresponsive. His color had changed, Eason re lated. The nursing staff de scribed his color as bluish-gray. Emergency Room staff attempted to resuscitate the baby, but were unsuccessful. Then, due to the nature and amount of injuries observed by the ER staff, police were called and an investigation into the 15month-olds death began, the chief noted. Eason said an autopsy was conducted on the baby that same day. This exam revealed numer ous severe injuries to (Joels) body, he continued. The Med ical Examiners Office termed the death as a homicide by head trauma. Coordinating its investigation with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, the State At torneys Office and the state Department of Children & Families, the Wauchula Police Department ordered medical examinations of five other children who were living in the same house. Eason explained that two families resided in the Town-send Street home: Rivera, boyfriend Jaimes and her three children; and a husband and wife along with their three children. It was then that the 2-1/2-yearold boy allegedly exhibited similar injuries, and the initial arrests of Rivera and Jaimes were made. Riveras surviving two chil dren are in the custody of a family member, Eason said this Tuesday. They remain under monitoring by the Department of Children & Families.

Slow economic growth across the globe has curbed the oil rally and helped fuel prices move lower. According to the government, U.S. manufacturing fell to its lowest level in six months. Consumer sentiment also de creased, according to a Thom son Reuters/University of Michigan report. "The good news is gas prices are stable and there is nothing, at this moment, that shows signs of a spike in price, said Jessica Brady, AAA spokesperson, The Auto Club Group. Pump prices are likely to inch lower again this week. The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gaso line is $3.28, one cent less than last week. Florida's average of $3.33 fell two cents from last week.MAN, 81Continued From 1A He maintained that position for hours. The major said Sheriff Arnold Lanier and deputies at the scene made numerous attempts to get the armed man to leave his bedroom and come out of the house. He refused, Dey said. As hours passed, the sheriffs tactical unit sent tear gas into the bedroom in an attempt to force Barncord from the house. One gas canister, sent into a window, was followed by a gunshot from within the bedroom, Dey al leged. The man had fired a round through the window and toward a sheriffs detective, breaking the glass but not striking the officer, Dey charged. The detective described feel ing the shock wave of the blast on his arm, a report noted. Dey alleged Barncord contin ually threatened to kill the deputies. Eventually, however, the tear gas forced him from the resi dence. Barncord was taken to Bay Pines Veterans Administration Medical Center in St. Petersburg for evaluation, Dey said. No one in the home or any responding officer was harmed in the incident, he added. A search warrant was executed at the house afterward, Dey said. It allegedly revealed a loaded Glock .40-caliber handgun in Barncords bedroom, along with a number of other firearms. Dey said at the time that once Barncord was released from the hospital, he expected criminal charges would follow. An arraignment date in Hardee Circuit Court is being set. BarncordBRANTContinued From 1A protection fund run by the Florida Department of Finances Division of Funeral, Cemetery & Consumer Services. Those reimbursements were made later in 2012, the Wauchula Police Department reported. Brant had been booked into the Hardee County Jail on a Wednesday. Judge Ezelle then ordered Brant to prove any money he would use to post bond was not gained from his illegal activities. Brant did so, and posted a $130,000 surety bond to gain his release from custody on Friday of that same week. He had owned and operated Brant Funeral Home at 404 W. Palmetto St. in Wauchula from 2003 to 2010. During that time, he sold pre-arranged funeral services to various customers throughout the community, most of them elderly. Monies paid for the service contracts were to be placed into a trust fund as required by Florida State Statutes. Wauchula police said that did not occur. Instead, Brant de posited the funds into checking accounts and used the cash to cover routine business bills and to pay for personal expenses. As his business struggled, Brant was unable to renew his state-issued pre-need sales li cense, but continued to sell preneed arrangements to customers in violation of the law, police said. During that time period, however, Brant won public office, serving as a Wauchula city commissioner from November of 2004 to August of 2008. Discrepancies in funeral con tracts started to surface after Brant Funeral Home closed in 2010 and a new funeral home operator opened in the same lo cation. Brant moved from Wauchula to Jacksonville. The Florida Board of Funeral & Cemetery Services began an investigation into alleged licensing violations. Mean-while, the Wauchula Police De-partment initiated a probe into possible criminal violations. As part of that probe, then-detective Jimmy Harrison traveled to Jacksonville to interview Brant. There, he admitted de positing the money into checking accounts rather than the trust fund. He explained that he used the money to support his busi ness, but never intended to hurt anyone. Brant told police he believed he could cover the funerals as they arose. Meanwhile, Allison Karnes of Ponger-Kays-Grady, the new funeral home located at the Wauchula site, offered to assist victims of Brants scheme. She pledged her funeral home would honor the prices originally agreed upon in Brant pre-need contracts, giving victims a break on todays pricing. Brant

Accord $219 Kellys Column B y Jim Florida has about a half million wild hogs, second only to T exas, reports the Charlotte Harbor National Estuary Program and Christine Garrett of Myakka River State Park. It is believed the hogs were brought to Florida by Spanish explorers Ponce de Leon in 1521 or Hernando deSoto in 1539. Wild hogs are found in all of Floridas 67 counties and in at least 35 states in the U.S. Hogs love acorns and will eat almost anything including dead animals, oranges, roots, seeds, seedlings, snakes and will even prey on ground-nesting wildlife. They compete for food with native game animals such as deer, squirrels and turkeys. They are often considered a nuisance and will damage agricultural crops. Hogs generally breed when they are a year old and can produce two litters a year, often 5 to 7 piglets, sometimes less or more. Their lifespan is about 8 years. Hogs can carry diseases, but are generally safe and good to eat if cleaned and cooked properly. Kristi Patel adopted a little sick black-and-white kitten Jan. 28. It was found in the bear cage at the Pioneer Park Animal Refuge. Kristi carried the rescued kitten to a local veterinarian who treated it at no charge and suggested the name of Bear. Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam recently spend four days in Panama promoting Florida orange juice and berries. He was joined by several Florida growers and the director of the Port of Miami. This was his first trip abroad since taking office in 2011, reported the Lakeland Ledger. Hardee County to date has avoided a major freeze this winter. There were scattered reports of the mercury dipping to 28 degrees but not for an extended period of time. It appears Congress will approve $125 million over five years to help fight citrus greening, reports Kevin Bouffard of the Lakeland Ledger. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has been working on this for four years, and U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney has been a big help also. It looks like Florida voters this fall can vote on a proposed constitutional amendment whether to allow medical use of marijuana. Some other states already allow this. A 60 percent voter approval will be needed for passage, reported the Ledgers Lloyd Dunkel berger. Sandy Scott recently won $1,178.50 in the Rotary Club Queen of Hearts contest. Two weeks later Terry Atchley won $884 in the Kiwanis Club King of Clubs contest. He donated half to the Aktion Club and half to the Key Club. The most ironic thing is both clubs started with a deck of 52 cards and held weekly drawings. Both clubs went to the very last card. What are the odds of that happening? The Florida State Fair in Tampa begins today (Thursday) and ends Feb. 17. This is an excellent state fair, and Hardee County is a big part of it. An 1800s village called Cracker Country was founded by Mildred and Doyle E. Carlton Jr. and has several Hardee buildings. Doyle E. Carlton III is chairman of the state fair again this year. My family has visited the fair 33 years in a row. There is something for everyone at the state fair. Congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks for an impressive win Sunday over Denver in Super Bowl 48. The Seahawks entered the NFL in 1976 with the Tampa Bay Bucs. Both teams now have one Super Bowl win. FINR/COUNTY LAWSUIT C ORRECTIONS & L ARIFICATIONS By JOAN SEAMAN Wauchula is in the process of amending its alcoholic beverage ordinance. It seems the ordinance needed changes in its language to be in line with the citys Land Development Code and other ordi nances. The six-page Ordinance 201402 will have first reading at Mondays monthly City Com mission meeting and will have the second, and final, reading at the March 10 commission meet ing. Very little has changed in the city code on the hours alcohol can be sold or consumed in the city. The original ordinance was approved in 2001 and modified in 2009. The terms of the ordi nance are enforced by the local police department. Alcoholic beverages, includ ing wines and beers can only be sold by a business with a valid license under the state Department of Business Regulations division of alcoholic beverages and tobacco. In the city limits, sale of such beverages is prohibited between 1 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sundays and between 1 a.m. and 7 a.m. on the other days of the week. Anyone with a beverage license c annot sell alcohol during those hours even if the business is open for another reason. Any establishment solely in the business of selling alcoholic beverage, be it a bar, saloon, pub, lounge, package store or entertainment center, shall close and lock its doors other than fire exits and outside lights shall be turned off. Customers will have 30 minutes from the closing time to finish consumption of an alcoholic beverage and vacate the building. For a business selling goods other than alcoholic beverages, all alcoholic beverages shall be secured so a customer cannot obtain them. Hours for the legal sale of alcoholic beverages shall be posted in a conspicuous and legible manner. All drinks con taining alcoholic beverages shall be removed from the tables and bars within 30 minutes after the ordinances stated times. The updated ordinance allows the commission to de-cide no later than the second Monday in each December the hours of sale of alcoholic beverages on New Years Eve. Any business established after July 1, 1999 may not sell alco holic beverages within 500 feet of a public or private elemen t ary, middle or secondary school. Once a business stops for at least six months, it is no longer eligible for the pre-1999 exception. The 500 feet is meas ured following the shortest route of ordinary pedestrian travel between the business and a school. An exception is a restaurant which derives at least 51 percent of gross revenue from the sale of food and nonalcoholic bever ages. No person may consume or possess an open container of alcoholic beverage on the streets, roads or right-of-ways in the city limits. A person may also not possess an open container of alcohol in the parking lots or other areas outside buildings selling alcoholic beverages. An open container is one on which the seal has been broken and which can immediately be consumed. There is a provision for any one 21 or older to possess or consume an alcoholic beverage within an approved area once a Special Event approved by the city. The person drinking is to stay within the special designation area and not wander onto the streets of the community. Wauchula Updates Alcohol Rules VALENTINES DAY CHOCOLATE FONDUE! T his weeks column is written by Alyssa Henderson, lieutenant of Fire Prevention at Hardee County Fire-Rescue. She brings us a hol iday tip! Happy Valentines Day! Yes, its that mooshy-gooshy time of year when greeting card and chocolate companies make a killing! I am pretty sure St. Valentine had stock in both Hallmark and Hersheys. So, what does Valentines Day have to do with the fire department? Well, in reality, not a whole heck of a lot, but it reminded me of a Friends episode. For those of you Friends fans out there, I always enjoyed the episode from Season 1 where all the girls were single for Valentines Day and, at the suggestion of Phoebe, decided to do a ritual to break their relationship bad luck. So, they start burning items from past relationships. Well, as it usually does in TV-land, one thing turned into another and, whoosh, the apartment catches on fire. In the end, the girls ended up getting dates with the hunky firemen who responded. Of course, ladies, please do not try this at home! I can assure you it most likely will not result in a date. Since we also have some female firefighters, this goes for men, too. Given that I dont have any brilliant words of wisdom, besides not setting anything on fire in the name of breaking bad luck, I thought I would share my Valentines Day Chocolate Fondue recipe. Its simple, elegant and delicious. I mean come on who does nt like chocolate! Valentines Day Chocolate Fondue Ingredients: 16 oz. Chocolate milk, dark or semi-sweet broken into small pieces. (Use Ghirardelli Chocolate, I promise you wont be disappointed. Its far better than anything else.) ** -Pint Whipping Cream -Cup Caramel Topping 3 Tablespoons Hazelnut Syrup or Hazelnut Liqueur Directions: Place all ingredients into a ceramic fondue pot over low heat. I have a mini-Crockpot I use, but I am sure you could do this in a pan, too, and transfer to a bowl. Just be careful to not burn it. Stir all ingredients together until the mixture is melted and smooth. Do not allow to bubble. Arrange an assortment of bite-sized dipping foods, such as strawberries, bananas, apples, cherries, pound cake, brownies, marshmallows, Rice Krispies and cheesecake. Spear food with fondue forks or wooden skewers, dip, swirl and enjoy! ** Side Note: I usually mix milk chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate. I think its a nice balance, but if you like one type of chocolate more than the other, use it.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A In Loving Memory H appy Birthday Daddy Richard J. Dease February 6, 1922 January 5, 2013 As I honor my Father on what would have been his 92nd birthday, I find myself remembering things he said or did. I remember times spent with him and know these memories are a precious legacy of my father, and his strength and love. I realize his parting was not the end of our relationship, only an interruption. The depth of pain of losing my father is indescribable, but I find peace in knowing that sorrow does not last forever but memories and love do. This past year I have noticed how I have picked up from him his uniqueness in things I do or say. That is the sad reward for loving him so well and so deeply. I have found that one who loves deeply will weep deeply. I know the tears I have shed are tears of loneliness that say, I love you and I miss you. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain.

The 3,000 seniors, with an average age of 74, only had to participate in a dozen or so training sessions lasting about an hour each to get years of gain. The study, done by Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, was called the Advanced Cognitive Training for Inde-pen dent and Vital Elderly study, or ACTIVE. Participants were di vided into four groups: three receiving training in memory (word lists), processing speed (identifying objects) or reason ing (looking for number pat terns), plus a group who didn't get any training. They were tested at intervals of one, two, three, five and 10 years. More than half got additional training to increase the effects. The results: Memory gains seemed to drop off after five years, but processing speed and gains in reasoning ability still were evident 10 years later. Compared to those who didn't get the training, participants were more able to handle daily activities such as cooking, m oney and medications. More than 73 percent of those who'd had reasoning training still scored above their pre-train ing levels. In processing speed, some 70 percent scored at or above their pre-training levels. When it came to memory, however, the trained group and the control group scored equally. To see the processing-speed training in action, go online to www.positscience.com and sample a few of the questions.

A merican Heart Month is celebrated in February of every year. Did you know that more women die of heart disease than all forms of cancer combined? Research shows only 20 percent of women identify heart disease as the greatest health problem facing women today and dont take their risk of heart disease seriously or personally. One in four women will die of heart disease. Its a lifelong condition that cant be cured, but it can be preFortunately, there are many risk factors for heart disease that can be treated or controlled, such as smoking, physical inactivity, obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. Other risks that cannot be con trolled include: Age. Most women with heart disease are 55 and older. Women have one additional risk factor that men dont estrogen production. Estrogen is a hormone that naturally occurs in a womans body that helps protect the heart. However, when a woman reaches menopause, typically around age 51, the body produces less of this hormone. This can contribute to high cholesterol, high blood pressure and weight gain. Fortunately, these conditions can be man aged. Heredity. A person whose family member has heart disease has a higher-than-average risk. Ethnicity. African-Americans are more likely to get heart dis ease. This is partly due to the higher rates of high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes in this group. Making small health and lifestyle changes may help reduce your risk of heart disease. The following tips, as well as working closely with your doctor, can help you keep your heart healthy and strong: Maintain healthy cholesterol levels. Be sure to get regular cholesterol screenings. Monitor your blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the hearts workload. Check your blood pressure regularly and aim for a reading of 120/80 or less. Control your diabetes. If you have diabetes, work with your doctor to help manage this condition. Dont smoke. A smokers risk of developing coronary artery disease is two to four times greater than a nonsmokers. Within three years of quitting smoking, your risk drops to that of a nonsmoker. Exercise. Physical activity can help control cholesterol, diabetes, obesity and blood pressure. Its recommended that adults get two hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity or one hour and 15 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic activity, or a mix of the two. You should also include strength-training exercises on two or more days of the week. Be sure to check with your doctor before starting any exercise program. Eat healthfully. Include plenty of whole grains, fruits and veg etables. Avoid saturated and trans fats and sugar. The American Heart Association recommends that you try to eat fish twice a week. Aim for less than 1,500 milligrams of sodium daily. If you drink, consume no more than one alcoholic beverage a day. Keep a healthy weight. Being 20 percent or more overweight may cause high cholesterol, blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. Ex ercise and eating healthfully can help you maintain or achieve a healthy weight. Work closely with your doctor if youre already at high risk. If your doctor considers you to be at high risk, talk with him about special preventive strategies. Remember that the more risk factors you can keep under control, the less likely you are to have a future heart attack. No matter what your age whether in your 20s or 60s you can take matters into your own hands to help reduce your risk of heart disease. Its never too late to live heart-healthy. Why not start now?

But with that said, let me tell you what Uncle Bill just did. He had himself a $30 million home built and has an outhouse a toilet outback of his new home, I guess in case some of his kin drop by like me. I made a little deal with Sugar Possum at the breakfast table this morning. I said if you will sweeten my coffee every morning, then I will take the caffeine out of yours. Folks, it is not as innocent on my part perhaps as it might sound. The reason I will be glad to take the caffeine out of her coffee every morning is because after a couple swallows of her coffee she starts her daily lectures for me. So if I can take the caffeine out maybe it will be a lot more fun for me. What is so amazing is that we can spell numbers such as one, two, three and so on. But than try to spell letters of the alphabet. You cant. You can only write each one down with a single letter like A, B, C, and so on. And something else which is so very confusing to me. How can a judge give a defendant three life sentences when he knows the old boy aint got but one? I guess he could leave one of them to his cell mate. Who knows? The reason I did not listen to President Obamas State of the Union Speech the other night was because I already knew the state was in, even before he went on the air. Despite the fact that my cousin, the one we all call Fingers because he has been in and out of the calaboose (this means jail) all of his life, he still despite all of this has got a heart of gold. I can assure you that he would give you the shirt off of his back, but I would not wear it in public because the man who bought it might by and you might have a difficult situation of how you happen to be wearing his shirt. You know what I mean? In making her daily gossip rounds, my mother-in-law Harpoon told one of my neighbors that President Ronald Reagan once said that singer Andy Williams voice was a national treasure but said her son-in-laws singing voice (mine) was not a national treasure but a national disaster. But in regard to Harpoon, mothers-in-law all love their sons-in-law in different ways. So Harpoons love for me is just a little different, wouldnt you say? I have learned through gut-wrenching experiences of my own that being in the right is certainly not always easy, especially when you are in the wrong. Boys, remember while driving upon Americas highways that the life you save might be your mother-in-law. Now dont that make you want to drive a little safer? Jokes & P hilosophies By Truman A.

10A The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The final home game was an overtime thriller. Senior night at the Wildcat gym was the best outing for the Hardee Wildcats as they battled point for point with the visiting Lake Placid Green Dragons last Thursday night. This weeks only action is dis trict competition, with Har-dee taking on top-seed Sebring on its court. In last weeks game, Lake Placid outscored Hardee by two points in both the first and second quarters, but the Wildcats came back to gain two points in each of the third and fourth quarters to knot the game at 59all and send it into overtime. It was 18-16 at the end of the first period and 32-28 at the half. Hardee came back to cut it to 44-42 at the end of the third quarter and took the fourth quar ter 17-15 to make it a tie game in regulation play. Lake Placid got the two-point advantage in the extra time to win 71-69. Steve Metayer lit up the boards in his final home game, scoring 37 points, with a half dozen deuces, five treys and 10 free throws, adding 23 rebounds, 19 of them on the defensive boards. Dustin Smith picked up 11 points, Djes Youte nine, Jordan Jones and Livenson Metayer each five and Tyler Helms two points. Y oute had seven rebounds and Tyler Smith had five. Jones added three steals and Youte, Dustin Smith and Livenson Metayer each had two. For the season, Steve Metayer averaged 23.5 points per game, with each of the other players getting a share of the actin. Youte had four blocks and averaged 5.3 rebounds a game. Jones had 11 deflections, Liven son Metayer five and Tyler Smith four. Marco DeLeon, Jones, the Smith brothers, Youte, Helms and Livenson Metayer all chipped in on the assists to make points possible. In pregame ceremonies, Steve Metayer and Helms were honored. Helms, the son of Wally and Wendy Helms, in his first year of playing basketball, has been a four-year participant in cross country and also participated in track and JV baseball. He likes running and plans to attend junior college locally and go on to a university to complete his education. Metayer, son of Levasuer and Rosemene Metayer, has been on the varsity hoop squad for three years and ran cross country for one season. He is a member of the National Honor Society and wants to attend a four-year university to major in civil engi neering while, hopefully, playing basketball. Cats Lose OT Squeaker By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee Lady Wildcats started the home stretch with an exciting game. The girls battled Avon Park in a 44-41 loss as they wound down the season, leading up to the Class 5A, Region 3, District 11 tournament last week against top-seeded Lemon Bay on the Manta Ray court. Senior players Bailey Carlton and Alyssa Casso and manager Andrea Pace were honored in pregame ceremonies in the Jan. 17 home finale against district rival Sebring. After a final regular season trip to Port Charlotte, the girls went against Lemon Bay to close out their season at the district level. Against Avon Park, Hardee had three players in double digits. Carlton led with a dozen points, followed by Florence Lee with 11 and Makayla Faulk with 10. Connie Luna added six and Desiree Martinez the final t wo. Other players were Casso, Brooke Faulk, Alexi Santana, Lucia St. Louis and Ellen Bivens. Against Sebring, Carlton came up with 14 points to be the games high scorer in a 51-39 loss. Casso, Lee and Brooke Faulk each had a half dozen, Makayla Faulk four and Mar tinez three. Hardee had a hard game against Port Charlotte in a 66-25 loss. Carlton again paced Hardee, scoring 10 points, while Makayla Faulk had six, Casso three, and Lee, Luna and San tana two points apiece. The district game against the number one team in the district was a dismal 62-21 loss. Mar tinez sank a trey and pair of deuces for seven points, Santana had six, Luna four and Makayla Faulk and Carlton two points apiece.

Collecting Q: I am sending you a photo of a Corina cigar box, made of wood, which I've had since about 1950. The original cost of the ci gars was 15 cents each. Can you tell me how much it is worth? Louella, Palm Desert, Calif. A: Since I have your letter and about a dozen others relating to cigarette and tobacco memora bilia, let me answer all of the inquiries with a source I have found to be helpful. Robert Forbes has collected tobacco-related items for a number of years and is an expert when it comes to tobacco silks and other premi ums. He might be able to advise you. His contact is P.O. Box 62, DuPont, WA 98373. My personal opinion is that your cigar box is worth less than $25. Q: I have inherited an E. Neal Pillar & Scroll shelf clock made in France in about 1900. It is a handsome neoclassical clock with beveled glass front and six cloisonne plaques, all highly decorated with scenes of maidens and other intriguing subjects. I have been offered $1,000 for this clock, but wanted to check with you be fore I make a decision. Stan, Tulsa, Okla. A: I found your clock pictured and referenced in "Clocks Price Guide," edited by Kyle Hus floen. According to this guide, your clock is worth about $3,000. Q: I have a yellow teapot made by Hall China. It is called a "Lipton Tea Pot," even though I can't find such a marking on it. How much do you think it is worth? Robert, Conroe, Texas A: It is called a Lipton Tea Pot because of its shape. According to "Antique Trader Teapots" edited by Kyle Husfloen, your teapot is worth about $40. Q: I have wooden hangers that were meant to be used to seal merchandise in boxes from department stores. Glorea, Surprise, Ariz. A: Advertising memorabilia is always popular with collectors, and if your hangers are marked with the name of a store or firm, that could add to their value. Show your hangers to dealers in your area to see if there is any in terest. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he re ceives, Mr. Cox is unable to personally answer all reader questions. Do not send any ma terials requiring return mail. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. By Larry CoxQ: In my neck of the woods we don't usually have cold win ters, but this one has been a doozy. My mother hauled out her ancient space heater in December. A couple weeks ago I was visiting her and noticed that some laundry had fallen out of the basket and was lying atop the heater! Fortunately it was not turned on, but I'm terrified of what could happen. Can you remind your readers to keep the area around space heaters clear at all times? Lacy S., Valdosta, Ga. A: You just did, and I thank you for it. Regardless of the type of portable electric heater you have, it must be set up so that there is 3 feet of clearance around it, and placed on a heatresistant surface (bare floor, for example, not carpet). Additionally, make sure that the outlet being used can handle the amount of electricity the space heater will draw. Don't plug anything else into that outlet. Consider replacing older space heaters. While I've seen many models built as long ago as the 1950s that are very sturdy, they often do not meet current electri cal standards and can use a lot more power than newer models, meaning higher electric bills. What's the best space heater to purchase? I'm not a fan of the classic open-coil model, and there are alternatives. For example, an enclosed oil heater, which looks like a radiator on wheels, circulates heated oil through each section and provides indi rect heat and a greater measure of safety. There are heaters that fit inside a kitchen's kickspace, oscillating tower heaters, and heaters disguised as fireplaces or standing vases. Portable heaters range in price from about $50 to several hundred dollars, so take a look at several options both in the homeimprovement store and online. Make sure any heater you con sider has the UL (Underwriters Laboratory) label. Heaters with thermostat control can provide greater energy savings. And it's important to make sure you purchase a heater that can handle the size of the room where you'll use it the most. (Check the sizing chart on the heater's packaging.) HOME TIP: Plug your space heater directly into a wall outlet, not a power strip; if an extension cord is needed, choose a heavyduty cord of 14 gauge or larger.

12A The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 DEER HUNT THROUGH MARCH 2 IN ZONE D! T heres one thing good to say about the second wave of seriously cold temperatures that invaded the Sunshine State last week: It reminded us hunters that deer season is still going strong in parts of Florida. General gun season remains open on private lands in zones B and D through Feb. 23. And then if you dont mind hunting with a primitive weapon, Zone Ds late muzzleloading gun season runs a week longer, until March 2. This unique late season, which occurs only in Zone D, was established to give hunters the chance to hunt the rut, which occurs from mid-January through February in the Pan handle. A $5 muzzleloading gun permit is required to hunt during this season. On private land, hunters have the choice of using a muzzleloader, bow or crossbow. On wildlife management areas, this postseason is referred to as the archery/muzzleloading gun season. Hunters can use bows or muzzleloaders but not crossbows, unless they possess a disabled crossbow permit. Hunters who choose to hunt with a bow must have the $5 archery permit, and those using a muzzleloader need the muz zleloading gun permit. The most common kinds of game to hunt during this season are deer and wild hogs. Only bucks may be taken (even if you use a bow), and one antler must be at least five inches in length. If youre hunting deer, make sure you have the $5 deer permit. On private land, the daily bag limit is two. Bag limits and antler size for deer on WMAs can differ, so please consult the area brochure before you hunt. No dogs may be used in the pursuit of deer during this season. However, leashed dogs can be used to track a wounded deer if necessary. And its important to note that no turkeys may be taken during this season. Youre allowed to take deer and hogs over feeding stations on private land, but its illegal to do that on WMAs. Twelve of the WMAs in Zone D have a late archery/muzzle loading gun season. If you plan to hunt any of em, you must have the $26 management area permit as well.Ten of those areas dont require a quota permit during this period: Apalachicola, Apalachicola River, Beaverdam Creek, Blackwater, Choctawhatchee River, Econfina Creek, Escambia River, Point Washington, Tates Hell and Yellow River WMAs. The two that do require a quota permit are Chipola River and Perdido River WMAs. So if youre not quite ready to give up on deer hunting, have no fear, cause Februarys here! Grab your favorite primitive weapon and head over to Zone D, where the rut is still on!

Sports Update B y Joan Seaman DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My mixed collie "Skipper" gets extremely nervous during storms and when construction is going on outside basically during any unfamiliar noise. He cries and hides under the furniture, and I'm unable to approach him to comfort him. Is there anything I can do? Anxious in Boise DEAR ANXIOUS: Talk to the veterinarian first, so that he or she is aware that Skipper has an anxiety issue. Your vet can suggest a few solutions, including anti-anxiety medication and some training and behavioral techniques you can try. Many owners want to avoid medication for anxious pets, as they're worried about the side ef fects. And in some cases, med ication does not resolve the problem. Those are among the reasons owners are looking to al ternative solutions to treating anxiety. Some swear by a homeopathic product called Bach's Rescue Remedy, found in stores that spe cialize in herbal supplements (al though it's being sold more and more in pet stores). About five drops of the product are added to a dog's water dish daily. Other owners combine homeopathic supplements with other therapies, such as playing music specifically composed to calm dogs during stressful events like thunderstorms. Or they put their dog into a Thundershirt, a wraparound garment that exerts constant, gentle pressure. No matter what therapy you choose, remember that the home environment and your own emotions can affect Skipper. Make sure his life has routine same feeding time, same walking times, etc. When a stressful event happens, keep yourself calm and speak in a soothing voice to Skipper.

Wayne introduced new snowbirds attending their first chapel service this year and asked for prayer requests. Devotions were led by Janit Apple. There was no anthem this week from the choir because there was a special group from Caring People Recovery Center, led by Johnny Parker. He spoke of the need to feel loved. The clients all gave testimonials, and one of the ladies sang a beautiful rendition of "You Raise Me Up." The last Sunday of each month's offering is given to Caring People Min-istries to support their ministries. SCOREBOARD Bowling: High game 215 and high series 540 were made by Bob Bellis, and high game 157 and high series of 395 made by Arlene Sebright. Great bowl ing, gang! SPOTLIGHT Gregg and Sue DeGroff are from Perry, N.Y. Gregg grew up in Perry and Sue is from Iowa. They met at the wedding of Gregg's roommate at Iowa State and Sue's high school friend in Iowa, and have been married for 41 years and have two daughters, a son, 10 grandchildren ages from 10 down to 3. Every other Sunday, they had 18 family members around the table for Sunday dinner. Gregg inherited the family farm from his father and raised registered Holsteins. He was one of the last of the small farmers in the area. While farming, Gregg was honored by Agway as an Outstanding Young F armer. Gregg contracted MS in 1996 and retired as a dairy farmer in 2001. Sue just retired in August as a pharmacist. Their claim to fame is they really love taking cruises and have been on at least 25 cruises. Hurricane Sandy interrupted a planned cruise last year and they were given a half-priced cruise in its place this year. They had three days before their cruise started, so they came to check out the area and to visit their first cousins, Butch and Betsey De groff and Dale and Katie Coo ley, who live in Pioneer Creek, and ended up buying a place here in Novem-ber. They were with their family at Christmas, and one of their grandchildren couldn't under stand what was going to happen to Sunday dinners since they were not going to be there anymore. Sue loves crocheting and is such an avid reader that during one of the cruises they were on, she read eight books. She loves spoiling her grandchildren. Gregg enjoys watching baseball and has played bocce ball here in the park. Their oldest daughter and her family are on a Fellowship of Christian Athletes mission, working in the United States. They are home-schooling their four children. Gregg and Sue are both studying the Bible and they each do a devotional every day. They also are doing a Bible study via the TV. They are a wonderful addi tion to the park and we are so happy to have them here. Top 10 Pop Singles Thi s Week Last Week 1. Pitbull feat. Ke$ha No. 1 "Timber" 2. Katy Perry No. 4 "Dark Horse" 3.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am a 69-ye ar-old woman, writ ing to you for information on probiotics. After taking antibiotics for a sinus infection, I developed diarrhea and bloating. I had many tests and scans. Everything was OK. My symptoms continued. On my third visit, they took a stool speci men, which showed yeasts. The doctor suggested I go to a health-food store and buy probiotics. I did, and a miracle happened: My diarrhea stopped. Is yogurt considered probiotics? For how long and how often should you take pro biotics? N.A. ANSWER: Probiotics contain live microorganisms that pro mote health when eaten. Mi croorganisms are bacteria and fungi. The thought of swigging down bacteria or fungi might be a turnoff. However, these mi croorganisms are the good kind, not the kind that causes infec tions. They work for us. Probi otics can restore to the digestive tract the normal balance between good and bad germs. They also appear to have a stimulatory effect on the immune system. Probiotics come as tablets, cheeses, milk, yogurts, juices and other drinks. The labels on these products must say "live and active cultures." The names of the organisms most often used are lactobacillus, bifidobac terium and sacchromyces. Some brand names of probiotics are Culturelle, Align, Floraster and the yogurt Activia. Curbing diarrhea is only one use for these products. They're also used for irritable bowel syn drome and other conditions. Yogurt is a probi otic if it contains live cultures. How long can you take them? That's a question that can't be answered. The studies haven't been done. The side effects from probi otics are few. It seems to me that you can use the yogurt probiotics for ever. The others are probably equally safe for long-term use, but definite statements aren't possible. The labels on the products ought to tell you how long they can be used and in what doses to use them. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I would like to comment on your article on bed-wetting. I am 68 and was a bed-wetter when I was little. It was during an era when children were supposed to be potty trained at young ages. I remember the rituals my parents went through to break me of this habit that, I suppose, was embarrassing to them. I eventually outgrew it. My first-born daughter also was a bed-wetter. I resolved not to make a big deal of it. Every morning we removed the sheets and pjs, and washed her ... never harping about her "problem." She outgrew it. Two of her five children were bed-wetters, too. She never dwelt on it. Perhaps bed-wetting has a genetic basis. Parents ought not to grum ble and blame their children. We should be thankful for such small challenges and for hav ing normal children. S.B. ANSWER: Genes strongly influence bed-wetting. If one par ent was a bed-wetter, the child has a 45 percent chance of also being one. If both parents were, their child has a 75 percent chance of wetting the bed. Genes are a big factor. Bed-wetting is involuntary. The child is in no way responsible. In my opinion, punishing or humiliating a child for wetting the bed is child abuse.

Sports Qu iz By Chris Richcreek Q: Can you tell me what Sharon Stone has been up to lately? Kellie T., via email A: Oscar nominee and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Sharon Stone has signed on to star in a new TNT action-drama, tentatively titled "Agent X." Written by William Blake Her ron ("The Bourne Identity"), "Agent X" stars Sharon as Amer ica's first female vice president, Natalie Maccabee, a woman with brains, beauty and a cool compo sure that belies a restless mind. Initially apprehensive that her job would be only cere monial in na ture, she soon learns that it comes with a top-secret duty: protecting the Constitution in times of great cri sis with the aid of her chief stew ard and a secret operative designated as Agent X. There is no word yet on when the pilot will air, but I'm thinking it would be a perfect summer series. Q: Can you tell me when my favorite show, "The Mindy Project," will be back? I was so happy that Mindy and Danny finally kissed, and I can't wait to see what's next. Janie F. in Colorado A: "The Mindy Project" will return to Fox with all-new episodes on April 1 (no joke). In the meantime, the Golden Globewinning comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will take its place, with "Mindy" returning when "Brooklyn" ends its freshman season. The folks over at "The Mindy Project" are regrouping and retooling as the series tries to get out of its sophomore ratings' slump. Personally, and I know a lot of people who agree with me, the show really has found its comedic stride this season, so I hope they are able to get the numbers they need for a thirdseason renewal. If not, then we will have lost one of the most intelligent, well-written and wellacted comedies that I've seen in a long time. Q: A while back I heard about a new reality series called "Nashville Confidential," which was to be about the wives of prominent Nashville husbands (singers, songwriters, businessmen, etc.). However, I haven't seen anything about it since. Doreen D., via email A: TNT is on track with its Nashville-based reality series; however, the name has changed to "Private Lives of Nashville Wives." The series is set in and around the capital of the highstakes country-music business, and will follow a group of ac complished, opinionated and driven women as they deal with professional challenges, family issues and social relationships. The cast of wives includes Erika Page White (wife of country singer Bryan White), Sarah Davidson (wife of songwriter Dallas Davidson) and Cassie Chapman (wife of Christianmusic artist Gary Chapman). The series premieres Monday, Feb. 24, at 10/9c. Q: My grandfather would like to know when "Longmire" is going to be back on. LeeAnn R., via email A: Longmire will return for a 10-episode third season this sum mer on A&E. I'll be sure to let you know when I have an exact date.

10B The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 Florida Crop Update Week Ending: February 2, 2014 W eather Summary: According to Floridas Automated Weather Network (FAWN), the majority of the State received over an inch of rain this week. Wellington (West Palm Beach County) re ceived the most rain with 3.47 an inch of rain. Maximum temperatures ranged from the 60s to the 80s, with the highest temperature in Sebring (Highlands County) at 87 degrees. The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 15 degrees in Jay (Santa Rosa County) and 18 degrees in Defuniak Springs (Walton County) to 60 degrees in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County). Field Crops: Icy, cold, and wet weather hampered field work in the Panhandle. Sugarcane harvest was delayed due to rain this past week in Hendry, Palm Beach, and Glades counties. Fruit and Vegetables: V arying degrees of losses on vegetables and strawberries were reported throughout the State due to freezing temperatures. South Florida farmers reported damage to corn and green beans, with loss of corn in Palm Beach County. Strawberries were being harvested in Bradford County. Harvesting of cabbage began in Flagler and Putnam counties, while planting of potatoes continued. Soil preparation for watermelons was underway in Suwannee County. Farmers in Miami-Dade County were harvesting and planting winter vegetables. Vegetables and fruits marketed in the State included beets, cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, herbs, egg plant, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, snap beans, radishes, lettuce, kale, collards, and a variety of specialty items. Citrus: Rain was widespread in the citrus area this week. All stations recorded more than half an inch of rainfall. Wellington (Palm Beach County) recorded the most precipitation with 3.47 inches. Lecanto (Citrus County) recorded the least with 0.68 inches. Average temperatures were in the upper 50s to mid 60s through most of the citrus growing area. Growers and caretakers continued to irrigate due to dry conditions. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated January 28, 2014, abnormally dry conditions cover most of the southern growing areas and portions of the northern, central, and Indian River areas. The western growing area and the southern portion of the Indian River area remained drought free. The majority of the active commercial citrus groves in the State are 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 groves and replanting new citrus, mowing, fertilizing, and psyllid control. Thirty-nine of 43 packinghouses had opened and begun shipping small quantities of fruit. Fif teen of nineteen processing plants had opened this season. Livestock and Pastures: Cold, icy weather in the Panhandle challenged livestock and slowed winter pasture growth. Ranchers in south Florida were pleased with the soaking rains that helped raise pond levels. The cattle condition for the State was fair to good but the pasture condition was mostly fair. Cattlemen were feeding hay and supplements across the State. Cold weather, frost, and drought throughout the State contributed to pasture decline. Cold weather was the main contributing factor for the pasture decline. 4,429 _______________________________ I N THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO. 252013CA000045 FLORIDA FEDERAL LAND BANK, FLCA, f/k/a/ SOUTH FLORIDA FEDERAL LAND BANK ASSOCIATION, FLCA, Plaintiff, v.

ATTEST S/Holly Smith City Clerk 2:6c Fort Green News By R illa Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! W hat a blessing the rainy and cloudy days were. We received one and seven-tenths inch of rain, which was needed. We have such good weather in Florida that my trumpet lily that was stung by the cold is already budding out again. I appreciate all of you who called or let me know you could not find the news in last weeks paper. My computer showed it went but they did not receive it. Rapid Systems just doesnt always work at my house, and the company even came out and put in a larger receiver. Most of us at Fort Green are looking forward to the sing at Northside this Saturday. It begins at 6 but you better come early if you want a good seat. Gulf State and two other groups will be singing. We had quite a number of visitors at Fort Green Baptist last Sunday, and one of the good things about having a small church is you know when you have visitors! It was good to see Jessica Gill. I personally am so proud and thankful for her recovery. She was always a sweet girl. Her bridal shower was very nice and she received many useful and beautiful gifts. We always have a long prayer list, but Betty Waters did not have a good last week. She required a blood transfusion and doctor visits. Vicki Owens is in the Sebring hospital with appen dicitis, which required surgery. David Williamson is in the Bartow hospital. Please pray for these and others you might be aware of that are sick. It is always good to see Jimmy and Randi Sasser at church. They are close enough to home now so they can come more often, and it is always great to see the whole family. Trish Richey was honored with a surprise birthday party at her home last Friday night. Her family and friends kept the se cret well and she enjoyed cele brating the big 50. John and Essie Deer are en joying their daughter and her husbands visit from Alabama. I dont blame them for leaving the freezing weather Alabama has been having. Several of our regular men members left church immedi ately after Sunday School. They were going to wrestling in Lake land, and the trip included Lee Chancey, Paul Adams, Randy Davis, Mike and son Hunter Davis, and Brody Waters. I think this was all, and they had promised different ones they would go the next time wrestling came to Lakeland. Some of the men just said they never figured it would be on a Sunday and especially not when the Super Bowl was being played. The RAs under the leadership of Daniel Duke will be camping at Hardee Lakes this Friday night. They always have a good time and quite often some of the older men go over for the Friday night cookout and song and storyt elling time. Brother Ed Howell will be preaching at Fort Green this coming Sunday. Quite a few people take ad vantage of the beautiful old cemetery in Fort Green on the corner of Hendry and Methodist Church roads to rest under the old oak trees. Quite often there will be someone there eating lunch in their vehicle. Now, it will be better as CF has gotten a slab poured and a well with pitcher pump put in for us. A picnic table is in the works. The water is non-potable but is OK to wash or water flowers when putting fresh ones in the ceme tery. There is a committee that plans workdays and quite a few turn out to help. We always take bottled water to drink but having water to wash our hands will be great. Maxine Albritton was at church last Sunday with her see ing-eye dog, which is a beautiful poodle. Of course Roy was also with her! Mabel Williamson has enjoyed having her sister from Miami spend the week with her. Mabel told me that they are the only two and whenever some one is coming our way, her sister catches a ride. My Mama used to do that or else I went and picked her up. Please pray for each other and our nation. (Missing Column From Jan. 30) Greetings from Fort Green! We certainly have the sick on our prayer list: Faye Davis, Edith Bassett, Kasie Powell, KLyn Simpson, Beth Sasser, Ree Spiller who is very bad, Cody Cowart, Mary Bargeron, Jim Sasser, Jean Sadler, Joyce Coker, and Betty and Clint Walker. Lynda Abbott is better since daughter Amy received a letter from Jake Willis who is stationed at Fort Sill, Okla. Charles and Lynda Abbott cel ebrated their 54th wedding an niversary Saturday and en-joyed supper at their favorite restau rant, Red Lobster. We had a beautiful basket of flowers in our sanctuary Sunday morning in memory of Rufus Sasser. Rufus went home to be with the Lord several years ago but his memory is always with his mother and family. Geraldine Floyd was at church last Sunday, having missed several. She said she had the crud and had to take two rounds of antibiotics. It is hard to get over this illness that is plaguing so many people. We were glad to see Betty Waters at church Sunday and, fi nally, Sherman is well enough and feels like attending. John Alexander left for home last week. He is very faithful to attend our church when down visiting his family, Mike and Roberta Alexander. Gary Oden told me that Gar nett Williams, 96 years young, said she was going to call me as she reads the news every week! A lady called me several weeks ago with the last name of Youmans wanting to know how to get in touch with Pauline Walker. Said I had written something about the family and she felt I could help her out as she had lost her information! Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Gene Roberts. He made his final journey last week. Charles Abbott said they were classmates. Most of you remember Jessica Gill. She had a bad car accident several years ago when she was on her way home from work and hit several cows. She was in the Lakeland hospital and in critical shape for quite some time. The Lord really blessed her with a clear mind and recovery. She finished school and lives on her own in Clearwater. She is going to be married and we are having a bridal shower for her at Fort Green on Feb. 3 at 6:30 p.m. All of you who know Jessica are invited and church members bring party food! We all are so proud of the success of Jessica. Kyle and Keller Braxton have a big field near our church. Their rows are so pretty, but I guess they should know how to farm as their dad, Mike, always has a good garden or field. I think it gets in your blood. That is why I notice the straight rows, etc. Makayla Chancey is taking college courses while in high school. If a person is diligent, by the time they graduate from high school they can have their AA degree from the local college. She made the Presidents Honor list, which is quite an accomplishment. Faye and Randall Davis, Norma Alejandro and Edith Bassett enjoyed visiting Johnmark and Amy Brown in De-Fu niak Springs. They visited granddaughter Rebeka Brown, and the ladies enjoyed seeing her dorm room at the Baptist College of Florida in Graceville. The family was very proud of Beka when she showed them a personal letter she had received from the president of the college advising her she was on the Presidents List. He congratulated her on her superb academic work and said he, personally, was very appreciative of her strong commitment to Christ. This college is very strict, and Grandpa Randy could not check out her dorm room. Faye and Edith said it was very nice and her roommate was very pleasant We had a workday at Fort Green last Saturday, Jan. 25. I forgot all about it as evidently most everyone else did. There were only about three families represented, and if the youth had not attended the work would not have been completed. We do have some good youth at Fort Green. Avie and Allen Eures and T.K. and Gavin Hogenauer enjoyed going to Disney over the weekend. Avie had wanted to be with her grandson on his first trip! Please pray for each other and our great nation.

By HUNTER REID Sp ecial To The Herald-Advocate Hello. My name is Hunter Reid and I am interviewing Elizabeth Abbott, my great-grandmother. Q: When were you born? A: I was born Dec. 24, 1925, in Vasselboro, Maine. Q: What state did you live in while you were growing up? A: My family lived in Maine. Q: What were things like when you were a little girl? A: Well, we lived in a very small town, and we all played together. In the winter time we all played in the snow. In the summer time, we had a brook down the road and we would all go swimming together. Q: What kind of games did you play? A: Kick the bucket, Rinnie Tin Tin and, of course, baseball and hide-andseek. Q: Was there electricity when you were growing up? A: Yes, we had electricity. Q: Did you have a television and phones when you were young? A: No, we didnt have any of those. Q: How many siblings did you have? A: I had five sisters and one brother. Q: Where did you go to high school? A: Winslow, Maine. It was about five miles up the road. Q: Were there any fast-food restaurants? A: No, we never heard of such. There was one place called Joes. It was a hotdog stand. Q: Were there any wars going on when you were growing up? The Only Fast Food Wa s A Hot-Dog Stand A: The only war that I experienced grow ing up was World War II. Q: Did you have to work while you were in high school? A: Oh, yes. The war was going on there, and I had a job at the air base in Bangor, Maine, in the summer time. Q: Did you go to college right after high school? A: No. I met your granddaddy at the air base I worked at. He was in the Air Force. We got married the same year I graduated, in 1945. When World War II was over your granddaddy and I came to Fort Green, where he grew up before he went into the service. Q: Who was the president then? A: President Truman. Q: What brought you to Hardee County? A: Well, I married my husband, A.E. Abbott Jr., after high school in June of 1945 and we moved back here where he was raised. He was a soldier for the Air Force and I met him at the Air Force base that I worked at. Q: Did you have any children? A: Yes, we have a daughter and a son. They both live in Fort Green, all in the vicinity of where my husband grew up. We actually have a lot of family that live in Fort Green. Back In Time is the result of a class assignment given to ninth graders at Hardee Senior High School. Each student is asked to interview an older person. Selected interviews are published here as an encouragement to the students and for the enjoyment of our readers. Back Back In In Time TimeA A V V a a l l e e n n t t i i n n e e f f o o r r Y Y o o u u r r H H e e a a r r t t I enjoy preparing dinner for m y husband, especially for spe cial holiday meals. Since he has some health issues, I try to make sure that the dishes I prepare contain ingredients that are nutri tious and delicious and that includes almonds. Of all the things to love about almonds, this one will really get your heart pumping: Research shows that a diet high in heart-healthy foods like almonds can help to reduce cholesterol levels. That's good news for just about everyone, as cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 cause of death among men and women in the U.S. Almonds also are one of the richest sources of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. A study published in the Journal of Nutrition found that consuming whole almonds, including the skin, doubles the antioxidant intake. Just 1 ounce (about 22 almonds) packs more protein than an egg and more than 3 grams of dietary fiber. This same portion provides about 160 calories, and the high protein content staves off hunger. Almonds also are a rich source of riboflavin, magne sium, manganese and copper. Shelled almonds may be whole, sliced or slivered with skin on, or blanched with the skin removed. Look for dryroasted almonds that contain no additional ingredients such as sugar or preservatives. Store them in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place to prevent them from going rancid or ab sorbing the odors of other foods. Refrigerated almonds will last several months, and up to a year frozen. This recipe for Sole with Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis Grapes and Almonds is an easy, yet elegant recipe for Valentine's Day ... or any day. Heart-healthy almonds add a lovely crunch and texture to the silky fish fillets. SOLE WITH GRAPES AND ALMONDS 4 sole fillets (or tilapia) 1/4 cup flour 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon unsalted butter 1 tablespoon olive or canola oil 1 teaspoon grated ginger root 1/2 cup dry white wine, white balsamic vinegar or vegetable broth 1 cup green grapes, cut in half 1 teaspoon sugar or honey 1/2 cup toasted sliced almonds 1. In large shallow dish, combine flour, poutry seasoning, salt and pepper to taste and coat fish fillets in this mixture. Melt butter and oil in nonstick skillet over medium heat and add ginger root. Stir, then add the coated fil lets. Saute for 3-4 minutes on each side until the fish begins to turn golden and flakes easily when tested with a fork. Remove to an ovenproof dish, cover and keep warm in low oven. 2. Add wine, vinegar or broth to the pan and cook, stirring to incorporate bits from the bottom of the pan. Cook for 4-5 minutes to reduce the liquid, then add grapes and sugar or honey. Cook 4 minutes longer, stirring con stantly. Season with salt and pep per. Add the fillets and sprinkle with almonds. Serve immedi ately. Serves 4.

Whidden and his force brought in another moonshine still Tuesday afternoon, which was taken in the Bee Branch section about 25 miles east of Wauchula. The complete still was brought in, consisting of coils and containers which were of approximately 120-gallon capacity and eight barrels of mash. An advertisement by Central Pharmacy reads: Dont Be Skinny: Amazing Gains of 5 to 12 pounds in a few weeks are often made by adding Yeast Vitamins and Iron (as contained in Vinol) to your diet. Vinol helps stimulate appetite, im-proves blood and nervous system. Vinol has helped thousands gain needed weight and energy. Vinol is delicious to take. Advertisements have been placed for Walt Disneys first full-length feature, Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, on Sunday and Monday. It will be playing at the Royal Theatre and is described as a comedy, car toon and newsreel. Admis-sion is 10 cents for children and 25 cents for adults. There will be a continuous showing on Sunday starting at 3 p.m. In one adver tisement, Bashful is de-scribed as a romantic but tongue-tied wall flower who reaches a new high in blushes over his secret crush on Snow White. 50 YEARS AGO Hardee County Judge Clyde Maddox has announced he will seek re-election to the office he now holds. Maddox has served as county judge for the last two four-year terms, and altogether has served seven terms in the position. County commissioners, under the prodding of Commissioner Ralph Smith, voted Wednesday to add name signs to all major blacktop roads in the county. Hardee County commission ers, along with municipal lead ers and interested citizens, met with Polk County officials Wednesday afternoon to discuss the Polk County Dog Pound and the possibility of getting one for Hardee. 25 YEARS AGO A 40-year-old Wauchula man has been sentenced to 40 years in state prison for the murder of his girlfriend last summer. In a surprise move, Zolfo Springs long-term police chief resigned his post early Tuesday morning. Wilbur Vickery wrote in a brief letter of resignation that his decision was due to personal reasons and would be come effective immediately. The Hardee Lady Wildcats improved their record to 15-3 Tuesday night at Palmetto with a 55-41 victory over the Lady Tigers. 10 YEARS AGO A science teacher who developed the districts first aeronautics course and a custodian who likes to baby teachers were named Hardee Countys top teacher and school employee of 2004 in ceremonies Tuesday night. Susan Barton, of Hardee Senior High School, was hon ored as districtwide Teacher of the Year and Peggy Rodriguez, of Wauchula Elementary School, was recognized as School-Related Employee of the Year. A 19-year-old Zolfo Springs man was killed late Friday in a single-vehicle crash in rural Hardee County. Vicente Jaimes was driving northbound on TenMile Grade in his 1997 Chevrolet pickup when he failed to stop at the intersection with Crewsville Road. A fad which has invaded Hardee Junior High School is unwelcome there. Dean of Stu dents Gregg White said Friday that he has asked teachers to send any student with the forbidden snap, or jelly, bracelet to his office. There, he confiscates the plastic bracelet until a parent comes to pick it up.

By JIM KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate About 1,400 people participated in the 43rd Annual Alafia River Rendezvous on 322 acres for formerly mined land at H omeland between Fort Meade and Bartow. The event was held Jan. 18-25 and was sponsored by Florida Frontiersmen, depicting American life prior to 1840. A bout 1,500 school children attended the gathering on Jan. 23, and about 5,000 to 6,000 total visitors toured the grounds on t he public days Jan. 24-25. The event used to be called Alafia River Long Rifles and was held in Hillsborough County. In 2001 Florida Frontiersm en purchased the Homeland site for a permanent location. The event draws participants from across the United States and some foreign countries including Canada, Scotland, E ngland and Germany. 1840 is considered to be the end of the main fur trading industry in the U.S., which was mostly beaver pelts.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7C Cast-iron cookware is still popular today. Riffles and pistols used black power and lead balls, leading to su ch phrases as keep your powder dry and flash in the pan. Hank Steinmetz of Greenville, Ohio, is a blacksmith, a va luable trade in the early 1800s. Iron, which melts at 2,350 degrees, is usually heated to 1,200 to 2,200 degree for shaping. Blacksmithing lead to phrases such as too many irons in the fire and strike while the iron is hot. Clint Livingston of Lewellwen, Neb., sells buffalo hides for $ 400. Clint Livingston models a $650 hand-sewn buffalo coat. A Ti-Pi (tee-pee) always has its door facing east to greet t he rising sun. It can withstand strong winds and was gen erally made with buffalo hides tanned with buffalo brains. Eight to 10 buffalo hides were required for a Ti-Pi, which are vented like a chimney for inside fires. Coffee and water pots were heated by a fire or hot coals. Suz of Jacksonville plays a dulcimer.
