The seven Bowling Green Elementary School students and the bus driver on board were not injured in the crash. The driver of the 2001 Dodge Ram, Eliberto Cisneros of Wauchula, was taken to Florida Hospital Wauchula with minor injuries. The Florida Highway Patrol said the accident on U.S. 17 and Torrey Road was called in at 6:20 a.m. on Tuesday. FHP crash investigator Tpr. William Delaney said both Cis neros and the school bus driver, Areli Jaimes, 41, of Wauchula, were in the northbound lanes of U.S. 17 at the time. The trooper said the school bus was stopped at Torrey Road and was waiting to load more children onboard. Delaney noted all of the bus lights were turned on and its stop sign was ex tended. Cisneros was traveling in the inside lane and then cut to the outside lane, where the bus was located, Delaney described. Cisneros was traveling too fast to stop in time, the trooper alleged. In the process of trying to do so, however, Cisneros left 209 feet of skid marks on the road, Delaney noted. The pickup then See BUS2A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate Anyone contemplating a foray into public service of the govern mental variety should note five local elected offices are up for grabs this year. Considered the off election year here, you wont find any constitutional officers or the schools superintendent on the ballot come November, but you will see two County Commission seats and three School Board slots. Any registered voters who reside within the district they seek are eligible to run. The County Commission pays $31,128 a year. Commis-sioners generally meet three times a month, twice in regular session and once in a planning session. Meetings typically last about 21/2 hours, and numerous agenda items are discussed and acted upon. Members of the public often attend. The School Board pays See 5 SEATS2A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate A former accountant and Economic Development Council officer who stole in excess of a half-million dollars from his clients will now learn his penalty in Hardee Circuit Court. The Friday sentencing hearing is set for 1 p.m. in Courtroom A on the third floor of the Hardee County Courthouse. The proceeding is open to the public. Michael Douglas Manley, 54, is expected to be sent to Florida State Prison for five years. In a December plea hearing before Circuit Judge John K.

Russell A. Melendy, 40, of 2552 Bailes Road, off Steve Roberts Special outside Zolfo Springs, said late last week that he has filed to fill the District 4 seat currently held by incumbent Grady Johnson. Melendy said he had been asked by several members of the community to run for the seat and is eager to serve the people of Hardee County. He has been considering running for office for a long time and God provided a good general manager to free him up to be able to do a good job as a commissioner. Vice chairman of the Hardee County Industrial Development Authority board, Melendy also serves on a number of other local boards. He is a deacon at First Baptist Church of Wau-chula and chairman of its insurance com mittee. He is also chairman of the Benchmark Council of the National Pro-pane Gas Association.

A must-see for many patrons is Cracker Country, a Florida settlement from the 1800s. Life was simpler then. There were no televisions, computers or cell phones. A Florida cracker meal could be fried salt pork, rice and tomato gravy, collard greens, fried smoked ham, biscuits, cornbread, and chocolate cake, as depicted at the Carlton House. If you like Florida political history, portraits of all the governors from 1821 to 2014 are on display at the Governors Inn. An irony is Floridas last two governors, Rick Scott and Charlie Crist, will seek the same job later this year. I noticed five of Floridas 67 counties bear the same last name of governors, not entirely by coincidence: William P. DuVal, 182234; Napoleon B. Broward, 1905-09; Albert Gilchrist, 1909-13; Cary A. Hardee, 1921-25; and John W. Martin, 1925-29. Wauchula native Doyle E. Carlton was governor from 1929-33, and his son Doyle E. Carlton Jr. ran for governor, losing to Farris Bryant. The Hardee County Fair will begin Saturday, Feb. 15, and continue through Saturday, Feb. 22. It will be held at the Fairgrounds by the Hardee Agri-Civic Center and Hardee High School west of Wauchula. There is something for everyone at the county fair. It is a busy time of the year with the state fair, county fair and Pioneer Park Days set for Feb. 26 March 2 in Zolfo Springs. There is a big pro wrestling event set for Saturday, April 5, at the Hardee Agri-Civic Center, with seven matches scheduled. The doors open at 6:30 with live action at 7 p.m. The main event will be former world champion Rick Flair trying to take away the Florida heavyweight champions belt from 1999 Hardee High School graduate Eddie White, The White Scorpion. White lives in Wauchula and Plant City and says this will be the biggest match of his life. Congratulations to CVS for recently announcing the company will stop selling tobacco products by the first of October. The U.S. surgeon generals report about 50 years ago said tobacco use was harmful to health, and adult smoking rates have declined from 42 percent to 18 percent. The new Mosaic Streamsong resort in south Polk County on mined land includes two world class golf courses and a 116-room lodge, great bass fishing, and four restaurants. The resort plans to attract guests from across the U.S. and the world. This is not your ordinary Motel 6 and Waffle House. A California chef recently spent 20 days at Streamsong training staffers on preparing Italian food. He ate lunch this week at Double J Restaurant in Wauchula, reported Judy Wilson. Her son Kevin works at Streamsong in food preparation. The goal is to be one of the top 10 golf resorts in the world and to prove that great things can be done with land that has been mined for phosphate. IS YOUR COMPUTER O PEN TO THIEVES? If you're a senior with a computer, do you know the answers to these questions? What is a keystroke logger? Why should your operating system be set for automatic updates? If you don't know the answers, your computer could be at risk for a security breach. Here are the answers: A key stroke logger is a spy program that logs each keystroke you make and sends the information to someone else. Your operating system should be set up for automatic updates because those updates will contain security features you need. Your best bet: Take the com puter to the store where you bought it (or to the Geek Squad at Best Buy) and have them do a little work on it. Your list of requests: 1. Scan for viruses; 2. Turn on your firewall; 3. Get the latest operating system updates and set it to automatic; 4. Install a good virus protec tion; 5. Set your system to be very secure as you wander the Internet. Here's why I suggest the Geek Squad: If you buy the annual plan and something goes wrong, you can call them on the phone for advice. If it's a complicated fix, you can give them verbal permission to get into your com puter remotely Your next step is to find a teacher who can show you all the safety and security problems with the Internet. In general, here are some activities to avoid online: Quizzes (even if they offer prizes), giv ing your real name and any information about where you live, social networking sites, dating sites, clicking on links in email and agreeing to sign up on sites like LinkedIn.

Gates are open from 5 to 10 p.m. How-ever the Future Farmers of America and 4-H livestock auction, takes place at 7 p.m. in the arena, a highly popular event. On Friday, some special guests will stop by to perform and entertain the crowd. Rhett Walker Band is set to perform at 7 p.m. in the arena. Walker, 25, is the son of a preacher who was raised around the South. According to his biography, at the age of 16 he and his family moved away from his home town. He says, I was doing whatever I wanted to do in the moment I mixed with the rough crowd, got into fights and drugs. After getting into more trou ble, getting a girl he met in school pregnant and finding him self without a job, Walker decided to make a change for his family and himself. He went on to marry April, the mother of his now two children, and they both dedicated their lives to God. His music career and his life of worship go hand-in-hand. I always knew I wanted to do music, but I couldnt sing as a kid; I was just terrible at it. So I was a drummer at church growing up until one day they called me out front to sing Grace Like Rain by Todd Agnew, and I never went back to the drums. The more I sang the more things started opening up, Walker said. Rhett Walker Band is bringing guests All Things New. This band is made up of four 21-yearolds, singer Garrett Horn-buckle, drummer Luke Wycuff, bassist Joshua Schou and guitarist Jeff Stein. Garrett says this of their music in their biographies, I feel like these are songs that people need right now. They carry the mes sage of redemption and freedom in Christ, Who came and died for us while we were still sinners. All Things New is just so eager to share that hope. Also, two members from the Bulloch Family Ranch will be there as guest speakers. The mother-daughter duo Julie Bulloch and Amanda Masek are part of the reality TV show Bulloch Family Ranch. The show is based in Lakeland and focuses on the Bulloch family and their efforts to help provide a stable family life for teenagers or help them get away from gang life or drugs in their old neighborhoods. The mini-concert will take place in the arena, tickets for general admission are $15. If looking for more information on any of these groups visit rhettwalkerband.com, allth ingsnewband.com or look for the Bulloch Family Ranch on Facebook.

Meetings usually last about 20 minutes, with little discussion of one or two, seldom four, agenda items. The public rarely attends. Both boards are subject to the occasional special meeting or executive session. Other commit tees or responsibilities may be required or expected. Up for election are County Commission District 2 and District 4. Sue Birge and Grady Johnson, respectively, are the incumbents. For the School Board, districts 1, 4 and 5 are on the bal lot. Those seats now belong to Paul Samuels, Jan Platt and Thomas Trevino, respectively. Elections Supervisor Jeff Ussery said on Tuesday that only Birge and political newcomer Russell Melendy, who seeks County Commission District 4, have begun the initial official filing processes in his office. All three School Board incumbents, however, have told this newspaper they will ask vot ers to give them another fouryear term. Ussery said none have appeared at his office as yet. To get ones name on the ballot for any of these five seats, a filing fee must be paid or a voter petition must be submitted. The fee is six percent of the County Commissions $31,128 wage or four percent of the School Boards $26,334 salary. Petitions, however, require only 100 signatures of registered voters. Those signatures may come from Republicans, Democ rats and Independents or Others, Ussery noted. The signed petition must be turned into the Elec tions Office by May 19 at noon. Ussery said there currently are 5,177 registered Democrats in Hardee County, 4,018 Re-publicans and 1,575 Other. The official one-week qualify ing period for all candidates is Monday, June 16, at noon to Friday, June 20, at noon. Anyone who has not turned in a voter petition by May 19 can still qualify for candidacy at that time, but will have to pay the cash fee. The Primary Election is Aug. 26. The General Election is Nov. 4. $100,000 or more and of $20,000 or more. The prosecution agreed to drop multiple counts of money laundering and additional counts of grand theft in exchange for Manleys switch from his origi nal not guilty plea. At that time, Stargel ordered Manley to pay nearly $600,000 to reimburse his victims, all before his sentencing date. No mention was made in court as to where that restitution money might come from. Manley was ordered to pay $380,762.96 to Evelyn Bailey; $118,988.42 to the Underwood Trust; $59,494.21 to Ester Albrit ton; and $35,696.53 to the Arthur Womack Family Trust. its business development. His community and faith are the mainstays of his life, he says. It provides the pride and vested interest in where youre at. He lists his concerns as business, the community, growth and family. My utmost goal is to preserve the family friendly at mosphere of Hardee County and continue to have opportunities here for future generations, he concluded. Added to that was a $39,195 reimbursement to the Florida Department of Law Enforce-ment for its investiga tive ex-penses. Stargel cautioned Manley that if full restitution was not made in time, he could face up to 60 years in prison. Be ready to have your affairs in order on that date to begin your prison sentence, the judge told Manley in December as he set Feb. 14 for sentencing. The state is seeking a five-year prison term followed by 10 years of supervised probation. Further, the state would have the judge place dozens of restrictions on Manley and his future contacts and activities. crashed into the rear of the school bus. Both drivers were wearing seatbelts. Cisneros was charged with driving too fast for conditions, Delaney said. Director of Transportation Rob Krahl said paramedics were at the scene and checked out all of the children. Each was given the all-clear. The seven students were then put onto another bus and taken to BGE, Krahl said. This was the third crash involving a stopped school bus in recent months.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A 2:13cCollecting Q: My wife has a collection of 25 to 30 Byers Carolers, all in original boxes and in good condition. We have downsized and are looking to sell them. Do you know of anyone in the second ary market who deals in them? Ralph, Coventry, R.I. A: I made several calls, and it seems that no one I contacted is in the market to buy Byers Carolers. I next monitored eBay, where several dozen are posted for sale. This might be your best bet. In my opinion, the Byers Carolers that I've seen are of fairly recent vintage, most from the 1990s. In other words, I don't think these Christmas caroler fig urines are quite old or rare enough to be in much demand with serious collectors. Q: I have a collection of more than 100 salt and pepper shakers. Although I don't have plans to liquidate, I am nevertheless interested in current values. Sue, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: There are several excellent price guides that should be helpful. One that I've found easy to navigate is "Antique Trader Salt & Pepper Shaker Price Guide" by Mark F. Moran and published by Krause. It features more than 1,000 S&Ps made by more than 40 makers, including American Bisque, Ceramic Arts Studio, Fenton, Goebel, Westmoreland and A.H. Heisey & Company. Although there are al ways exceptions, the S&P's I've spotted in shops and at antiques malls have been priced in the $3-$5 range. Q: My dad was a big Harry Truman fan, and I have several political items related to his political campaigns. One of the more unusual things is a "Harry Truman for President" license plate. Any value? Tom, Fenton, Mo. A: I found the license plate referenced in several price guides, and it appears to be worth about $750. Q: I have a Montblanc fountain pen, the 432 Stylographic. It is black and was manufac tured sometime before World War II. Steve, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Your pen should be black with an inlay white star on the cap crown. From 1937, it is valued at about $300, according to "Collecting Pens" by Edward Kiersh and published by House of Collectibles. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Most people think the library is just a quiet place where people go to read, do homework or check out a book. Boy are they wrong! The library has changed significantly over the years. Not only can books be checked out, but also DVDs, VHS tapes, e-books, puz zles, magazines and audios. The library is a super way for a family on a budget to get great movies and books. It costs nothing to come in and check out a movie and books for a fun family night at home. All you will need is a $5 pizza or a nice bonfire for a scary story, and you are all set for a night of fun! The library also offers computers for people to use. These com puters are open to anyone who has a library card. If you do not have a library card, then the library offers a guest pass for $3 for an hour or a 15-minute computer that is free. If you have your own device, we now offer free wifi to the public, too. New to the library is our Rosetta Stone computer. We now have Rosetta Stone in Spanish and English. If you would like to use this service, you must have a library card, sign in at the front desk and give your ID for a headset. We will then show you how the program works and let you learn the language of your choice. You are limited to two hours, and once you are logged off your information is gone. Headsets must be returned to get your ID back. This is a great program for people who would like or need to learn Spanish or English! We are now offering an art-journaling class for adults and teens. Art journaling is a journal in which you combine art and words to express yourself. Thats it. Its not complex, and there really are no rules. It is all about self-expression. The class will meet every Tuesday at 10 a.m. Call or come into the library to check for availability. Registration is required. For teens, we will have more information about a date and time for the class. Please come in and sign up so we can get an idea of those interested. Knitting, crochet and tatting is still going strong. Instructors Joyce Manepa and Nancy Collins would love to see some new faces in their class. Come join them on Thursday mornings in the Childrens Department at 10. Folks of all abilities are welcome. Come meet new friends and join in on the fun. Then theres the fact that AARP will be at the library from 2 to 6 p.m. on Mondays from now until April 14th to help with federal income-tax returns. Also, the library will be having its first annual Easter Bonnet Contest for all ages. Decorate a bonnet and bring it to the library by April 4 to be displayed.

Wayne welcomed one couple new this year to chapel and asked for prayer re quests. Devotions were led by Barry Templeton followed by the anthemWhat is This Bread? sung by the choir, di rected by Sandy Freeser and accompanied by Cheryl Conkle on piano. There was special music, Communion, sung by Stephanie Connell. The morning of fering is being donated to the Cares Recovery Ministries. Pastor David spoke from Ephesians and made three points in his sermon. First, the work of sin in us; disobedience separates us from God. Second, the work of God for us; God loves each and every one of us. The third point was the work of God in us; when we are saved, we are given a new direction for our lives. Everyone is tempted to sin but if you are saved and believe that God died for your sins, you will not want to sin. Communion was followed by a closing hymn. SCOREBOARD Bowling: For the men, Ron Drumm had a high score of 187 and Bob Bellis had a high series of 468.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A I always thought that a cardiac arrest was one made b y a po liceman with a bad heart. Food for thought ... If you cannot please, then whatever you do dont appease. This would be like an old bridge over troubled waters. They told me in Nashville that I was not that good of a singer, but I shore put a whooping on a note. The foregoing poem, or what you might call it, was recently stated on a television broadcast by syndicated columnist George Will, to paraphrase if I may, it goes something like this: Nelly was nicked in the belly by the cow. It didnt really help Nelly any, but it really didnt cause her any harm. These tree huggers are always hollering what would the world be without trees? I ask the tree huggers, what would the trees be without the world? My stingy cousin we call T.W. for Tightwad, well, they say he was having an out-of-body experience but would not go through with it because he did not want to leave his billfold. Jokes & Philosophies By Truman A. Thomas M y mother told me when I was a little boy that people dont love each other like they did when she was a little girl. Because when they seen friends and family arriving on horse and buggy that every body started crying they were so glad to see them coming to visit. I said, Mama, times havent changed at all here in the 1990s. She asked me, why do you say that, Truman? I told her people still cry when they see you coming. Unfortunately there are those aggrieved souls among us who firmly believe that the world is one great big symphony orchestra, and they and they alone are its conductor, directing every movement. I sometimes wonder how many of these poor confused souls are there in every town, melted into the masses of the national fabric. They are truly the ultimate in what involves self-righteousness. I sometimes wonder if those brave American astronauts ever re turned to the moon, retrieved and returned to Mother Earth with that poor hapless dog they left up there. I am sure you have heard about it. They called him Rover, remember? By chance have you ever heard of a local funeral home sponsoring a safe drivers month? Like so many of you red-blooded fans I, too, caught the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago. However, I chose those bull-headed, snorting Broncos to win. The way I looked at it how could Seahawks defeat them, but they did in pad-snapping fashion. In this Super Bowl the Seahawks wound up with all the soup, and the Broncos wound up with a cracked bowl. I worked on these writings way past one a.m. this morning. INFORMATION Roundup Plan Now For Men s Softball There will be a meeting to plan this years Mens Church Softball League.

W Wa au uc ch hu ul la a 2:13c Words To Live By A Daily ThoughtTHURSDAY Soak me in Your laundry, O God, and Ill come out clean. Scrub me and Ill have a snow-white life. Tune me into foot-tapping songs; set these once-broken bones to dancing God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.Psalm 51:7-8,10 (ME)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y Jesus said, But what I tell you is this: Love your enemies and pray for your persecutors; only then can you be children of your heavenly Fa ther, who makes His sun rise on good and bad alike, and sends His rain on the honest and dishonest. There must be no limit to your goodness, as your heavenly Fathers goodness knows no bounds.Matthew 5:44-45,48 (NEB)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y But He (Jesus the Messiah) was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped and we were healed. All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left Gods path to follow our own. Yet the Lord God has laid on Him the guilt and sins of us all.Isaiah 53:4-6 (NLT)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y And what is it that God has said: That He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son (Jesus). So whoever believes He is Gods Son has life (eternal); whoever does not believe He is Gods Son does not have life (eternal). I have written this to you who believe in the Son of God so that you may know you have eternal life.I John 5:11-13 (TLB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y Solomon said, Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: fear (re spect, be in awe of) God and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, includ ing every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (NIV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Never act from motives of rivalry or personal vanity, but in humility think more of one another than you do of yourselves. None of you should think only of his own affairs, but each should learn to see things from other peopless point of view.Philippians 2:3-4 (PME)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y People who live good lives respect the Lord, but those who live evil lives dont. Fools dont care if they sin, but honest people work at being right. Evil people will be paid back for their evil ways, and good people will be rewarded for their good ones.Proverbs 14:2,9,14 (NCV) NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR TAX DEEDNOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that GRAY E.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate IDA member Horst Witschonke is upset with fellow members of that board. Witschonke, a recent appointee to the Hardee County In dustrial Development Au-thority, told the County Com-mission on Thursday that I am being accused of not doing my job and am going to be investigated. I take that as an affront to my integrity, I am committed to doing my job. They have already had ethics charges against me. If you have a problem with me, tell me, said Witschonke. He presented a memo to the commission and later asked for it to be printed in the newspaper (see letter to the editor). Witschonke said he had been an engineer with the Environmental Protection Agency for 23 years, and while working with Superfund, he was instrumental in getting nine projects removed from the list which hadnt been properly analyzed and were not qualified. That experience leads him to believe some projects in Hardee County should have been eliminated in an open process Commissioners Mike Thompson and Sue Birge both took issue with Witschonkes goal six, To identify and re-move companies and projects that can not demonstrate viability of fu ture benefit to Hardee County. Birge said she respected W itschonkes background and opinions but had a problem with him calling companies already coming to Hardee County. After diverting to other topics, he fi nally acknowledged that he had gotten a card from PF Mann at the park, after it had already been approved by IDA and was moving into the Hardee County Commerce Park. I called Mr. Fister in New York and asked about the PF Mann motors. The whole thing was positive. They were registered in Highlands County and not in Hardee County until later, commented Witschonke. He also said he was concerned about companies receiving Brownfield grants, which were supposed to be for environmental remediation. County Man ager Lex Albritton clarified those funds are also to be used in Enterprise Zone develop ments. The Commerce Park is in an Enterprise Zone. A review of reports from re cent IDA meetings show at the Dec. 17 meeting, there are two entries concerning member Witschonke. One is his com plaint that board minutes do not include public comments or members opinions. (Minutes of most boards include motions and other actions of the board, not detailed recordings of dis cussions.) The second Dec. 17 entry notes a report on PF Mann completing the building and receiving equipment. It is noted that W itschonke brought up several questions regarding the com pany and its products that had previously been discussed extensively in previous board meetings. Board member Doug Jensen made a motion to make the subject a dead issue and not con tinue to bring it up. It was seconded by Dottie Conerly and passed 9-2 with Witschonke and Donald Samuels voting against it. The next entry is from the Jan. 14 IDA meeting, at which the IDA voted to have the County Commission, which appoints the members of the IDA, conduct a performance review of all mem bers. The motion was first made by Gene Davis to evaluate recent appointees because he felt some members have been work ing against the IDA objective to create jobs and encourage eco nomic development. Member Jim See said he would second the motion if it was amended to include all board members, which it was. The motion passed unanimously and commissioners are ex pected to discuss the issue at one of their upcoming meetings. Witschonke brought it up at last weeks commission meet ing. No date was set to continue review of IDA members. Role of IDA Board Members Questioned Dear Editor: I took the oath that I will well and faithfully perform the duties of the Industrial Devel-opment Authority board member This oath means to me: (1) the protection of public money. Public money is federal money authorized by Congress with our presidents concurrence, then provided to states to add their money for further distribution to counties and cities to implement credible projects; (2) to follow the Presidents Agenda for promoting Green Energy; (3) to commit to the governors initiative for creating good jobs in Florida as expeditiously as possible; (4) to respect and promote the attorney generals commit ment to her Sunshine (law) initiative; (5) to find companies and projects showing a demonstrable history and high proba bility of future success in Hardee County; and, finally (6) to identify and remove compa nies and projects that cannot demonstrate viability of future benefit to Hardee County. Companies and projects based on unsubstantiated claims and promises must be exposed before applying for limited public funds. Horst Witschonke Editors Note :The above letter was distributed to Hardee County commissioners at their Feb. 6 meeting. Witschonke told commissioners it was wrong for IDA members to want to investigate him (see related story). The IDA does not receive funding from the federal or state govern ment but relies on the 10-year, $42 million Mosaic agreement for economic development projects.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, February 6, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate After splitting preseason games, the Hardee varsity girls softball team pocketed a pair of wins to start the regular season. The girls lost the preseason opener last Saturday against host Lake Wales, but came back to blank George Jenkins in the sec ond game of the day. In action last week, the girls won at home over Frostproof and hung on for an extra-inning win at Okee chobee. This weeks only game is at home against Palmetto tomor row (Friday). There is a regular season matchup at home against Lake Wales on Feb. 21 and a trip to district rival Lemon Bay on Feb. 28. Lake Wales 8, Hardee 2 The Lady Highlanders slowly and surely increased their score over Hardee in this first game for the Lady Wildcat varsity at 10 a.m. last Saturday. Hardee went down in order in the first three innings, while Lake Wales picked up one run in the second and two more in the third inning. The fourth in-ning was a three up, three down for both squads. A Makayla Deuberry walk was Hardees only success in the top of the fifth, as Lake Wales padded its lead with four more runs. The Lady Wildcats finally got on the board in the top of the sixth. Morgan Walters singled and advanced on a Sara Welch hit. Alex Ullrich also singled, scoring Walters before back-toback groundouts ended the ef fort. Lake Wales picked up its final tally in the home half of the sixth. Hardee picked up a run in the top of the seventh, when Kim Derringer singled, and raced home on a Deuberry double. Hardee 4, Jenkins 0 The Lady Wildcats were more successful in the noon game against Lakeland Geor ge Jenkins. Hardee ended up as the home team in the 4-0 victory. An error allowed one runner on base for the Lady Eagles in the top of the first inning. In turn, Hardee batters went down one-two-three. Welch was on the mound for the Lady Cats in the top of the second, striking out of the first Eagle batter and getting a pair of fly-outs. Hardee batters again went down in order. After retiring Jenkins in the top of the third, Hardee began to get going. Walters singled, ad vanced on a passed ball and stolen base but was stranded at third. With two down, Ullrich grounded out to stop the action. It was four up, three down for the Lady Eagles in the fourth inning. Hardee bats came alive in the bottom of the inning. With one down, Welch singled, and Derringer, Deuberry, Ha-nah Carlton and Morgan all doubled. When the dust settled, Hardee had a 4-0 advantage. The rest of the game was a de fensive effort, with both teams stranding runners and no further score. Hardee 11, Frostproof 1 On its own field last Thursday, the Lady Wildcats started scoring in the first inning and never looked back. With Ullrich on the mound, Hardee allowed only a single for the Lady Bulldogs in the top of the first. Hardee put three runs on the board. With one away, Senida Garcia was safe on an error at first. Caryssa Johnson walk. Derringer doubled to bring Garcia home and Johnson came in on a wild pitch. Der ringer scored on a Deuberry sac rifice. Frostproof picked up its only run in the top of the second on a single, back-to-back walks and another single before Hardee got the outs to end the inning. Hardee, in turn, added three more scores in the bottom of the frame. Carlton opened with a triple, Walters was safe on an RBI sacrifice. Ullrich then tripled and rode home on a Welch sacrifice. Johnson and Derringer both walked and were stranded. It was a 6-1 game. With Frostproof on a three up, three down in the third inning, Hardee left Karlee Henderson and Walters stranded. The Lady Dogs left a runner stranded in the top of the fourth. Hardee picked up two more runs. Garcia singled and John-son was safe on an error. Der-ringer smacked a two-RBI triple and came around to cross home on a Carlton hit. It was 9-1. Frostproof had only three batters in the fifth. With one away, a walk put one aboard who went out on a fielders choice. That runner was caught stealing. Hardee put the game away in the bottom of the fifth. Ullrich was hit by a pitch and scored on an error on a Welch hit. Welch came home on a Garcia sacrifice with the 11th Hardee run, allow ing the Lady Cats to win 11-1 on the 10-run mercy rule. Hardee 14, Okeechobee 11 The thriller of the week was the Friday night game at Okeechobee, a game which went into an extra inning before Hardee claimed the win. In the opening inning, Garcia singled but was erased on an inning-ending double play. The Lady Brahmans picked up a score when Lexi Ward walked and came home on an error on a Kelli Chapman hit. Hardee went in front with a pair of tallies in the second in ning. Derringer singled and went to second on an error. With two down, Deuberry singled. An error in center field allowed Derringer to cross home plate and Deuberry came in on an error on a Walters hit. Pitcher Garcia limited Okee-choee to a walk and stranded batter. It was a 2-1 game. Hardee nearly batted around in the top of the third. Welch sin gled, moved around on an error and passed ball and scored on a Derringer hit. Carltons hit scored Derringer and Ullrich doubled to scored Carlton. It was 5-1. A double play cut the Lady Brahman efforts to one score in the bottom of the third to make it 5-2. Hardee broke the game open in the top of the fourth. Garcia, Johnson and Derringer all sin gled. Carlton and Ullrich both drew walks. Deuberry doubled to keep the runners crossing home plate. Deuberry was out at third but Walters walked and eventually stole home to make it a six-run inning and give Hardee an 11-2 lead. The Lady Brahmans werent ready to concede and managed a three-run home half of the fourth on a combination of walks and hits, making it 11-5. The Lady Wildcats were stymied in the top of the fifth and Okeechobee went down one-two-three as Garcia picked up a pair of strikeouts. Hardee batters went down in order in the top of the sixth and Okeechobee took momentum to come up with four runs on errors and hits. It was 11-9. The Lady Cats left two stranded in the top of the sev enth, while the Lady Brahmans tied the game with a triple, error and hit. With the game at 11-11, it went on to the eighth inning. Hardee regained its determina tion and scored three runs to lead 14-11. Ullrich was safe on an error, Deuberry singled but was later out trying to come home. Walters singled and Kendall ;Gough drew a walk, both coming home on a Garcia hit. When a double-play erased the only Braham runner in the bottom of the eighth, Hardee had was undefeated in regular season action. JV GAMES The Lady Wildcats junior var sity opened its season with a split, winning at home 15-5 over Frostproof and losing a tough 21 game at Okeechobee. In the first game, Frostproof led with a three-spot after the junior Lady Dogs first inning. Hardee came back to cut the lead to 3-2 with a pair of tallies by Vanessa Ortiz and Michaela Villarreal. Pitches Alyssa Tatum recorded three Ks in the top of the second and Hardee forged in front 4-3, with tallies by Tara McNabb and Kourtney Hen-der son, aided by an Ortiz hit. Frostproof went back in front 5-4 with two runs in the top of the third, before put the game away with a 10-run third inning blast, hits, walks, hit batsmen and a Tiffany Owens triple com bining for the scores. At Okeechobee, it was a dif ferent game, with both teams using double plays to limit op ponents scoring. Hardee got on the board in the top of the third. Villarreal picked up the lone junior Lady Cat score when she singled and rode home on hits by Jacqueline McGhee and Gabby Allen. Okeechobee evened the score in the home half of the fourth in ning and broke the tie with a solo score in the bottom of the sixth on a pair of hits. Softball Girls Start Strong One Day Only!

Orange Street ~ Wauchula773-2200WWW.STORTSTAXES.COM1:30-2:13c Danielle & Deborah By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate It s ended for 2014. The Hardee boys basketball team handled adversity to the end as they finished up the season at the Class 5A, Region 3, District 11 playoffs last week. Hardee was without the services of senior leader Steve Metayer, who had been injured in the Jan. 31 game against Lake Wales Vanguard. Even without his leadership, Hardee made a game of it, before losing to topseed Sebring on its court 73-55. For the Wildcats, freshman Djes Youth picked up the slack, finishing with 19 points, 11 re bounds, a steal and an assist. He had a lot of help as every other Wildcat also got into the scoring column. Jordan Jones had nine points, Tyler Helms eight, Marco DeLeon seven, Dustin Smith six, Tyler Smith four and Livenson Metayer two points. J ones chipped in with four de fensive rebounds, while the Smith brothers each had three. DeLeon picked up a pair of blocked shots. Jones also had eight assists and Livenson Metayer had three. On the season statistics, Steve Metayer finished with a 23.5 points per game average, with each of the other players also joining in the scoring, rebounding, blocks, steals, deflections and assists. Coach Vance Dickey and staff had a challenging season teaching the short without the height most other teams had. That will, no, doubt, continue into the next season as returnees include juniors Jordan Jones, Dustin Smith and Tyler Smith, soph Marco DeLeon, and frosh Djes Youte and Livenson Metayer.

Is this true? Why haven't we heard more about it? Concerned in California DEAR CONCERNED: As the number of states that allow medical marijuana to be prescribed increases, it's likely you will hear more stories about pets being affected by ingesting this drug. A recent NBC News report estimated that calls to the ASPCA's Animal Poison Control Center reporting pet poisonings in creased 30 percent between 2009 and 2013. However, Time magazine disputes that report, noting that the actual number of calls increased from 213 in 2009 to about 320 last year a very small percent age of the 18,000 total calls the APCC gets each year from owners. My take on the issue is this: Marijuana is a drug, so owners need to use common sense. You wouldn't leave other prescrip tions lying around for the dog or cat to eat. So don't leave your stash lying around. Further, many patients use baked goods to ingest marijuana rather than smoking it. "Pot brownies," for example, contain chocolate, which is definitely dangerous to dogs and can cause severe symptoms when eaten. The APCC gets far more calls about poisoning from chocolate ingestion than from any other substance, Time noted. That said, pet owners who see or suspect their dog or cat has in gested marijuana should contact their veterinarian for advice. They also should watch their pet for unusual symptoms, such as lethargy, excessive drooling, diarrhea or incontinence, and take them to the vet immediately if they begin experiencing these or any other problems.

Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Cody Cowart. In Wauchula if you had a problem with any type of bodywork, you took it to Triangle for a super good repair job. He will be missed. Our sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Herman Moye. We both worked for the same company at one time. Also, Sherman and I would see him and Ruth fishing at Arbuckle Lake. He was a member of Fort Green Baptist but had moved away. We will miss him. Betty Walker had a bad week. It seems when they have to change her medicine she is in for a tough few days. Vicky Owens is still in the Sebring hospital. Gloria Dupree is in Manatee Memorial Hospital in Bradenton. They are not sure what is wrong with her but she is bleeding somewhere internally. She was at the gospel sing in Palmetto, goes every year, and the long and short of it, an ambu lance was called and they took her to the hospital. Beth Sasser was scheduled for surgery last Monday. Pat Gugle, Shaun Casey and Betty Waters were among the ones listed as sick Sunday. Please pray for all of these. Betty Waters was able to attend church but had a few bad days last week. Tonya Fields told me she made the A/B honor roll and was proud of herself, as she should be. Joe Fields is getting along fine after his surgery. Jane Kennedy was not at church last Sunday but we were told she went to church with her son, Dale. It is great to be missed when we are not at church. Kasie Powell competed in a band competition at Braden River High School last Friday and received an excellent award for her saxophone solo. Congratulations, Kasie! She is very versatile as she competed in bowling in Winter Haven on Saturday. She did well but KLynn Simpson, her niece, did re ally well. Kaylee Hogenauer also bowled in Winter Haven but I did not hear the results. The men and boys had a really good time camping out at Hardee Lakes last Friday. They said the wind coming across the lake was really cold and, of course, knowing the young they stayed up all night! They did not act tired but the chaperones sure were! Randi Sasser had to go to Chicago for training and while up there got sick. Beth said at church Sunday morning she was well and returned to Flor-ida. There was a big snowstorm before she returned home and the TV announced 13 degrees there! I am happy down here, and it gets too cold here for me sometimes. I had to go to Pioneer Medical last Friday and Mr. Gill is trying a different cholesterol medicine for me. Any that I have taken makes my legs hurt! Tammy Hellein is his normal nurse and was not in. I asked about her and was told her oldest daughter, Jessica, had her tonsils taken out that day. In the past we have not considered this very serious but since we have all heard on the television about the little girl in a Western state getting paralyzed we are more concerned. Please pray. Anyone who missed the sing at Northside Baptist last Saturday night really missed a treat. Three Southern Gospel quartets sang and they all were super. The Hardee County Fair opens this weekend, and kids day is Monday. Anyone who likes strawberry shortcake needs to stop at the 4-H booth. It is just as good if not better than the Strawberry Festivals, and not nearly as expensive! My group will be working Monday during the day and then another group takes over at 5. Ive just gotten too old to cut the mustard and stay there until 10! Anyway, I wanted to attend the contest Monday night and see Brianna Waters from our church. Makayla Chancey, also from Fort Green, will be in the contest on Saturday. Abby Duke and Karson Goodwyn are in the contest scheduled for the 21st. Pray for one another and our nation.

The "scream" calls a troop of ants that protect the caterpillar, and in return the caterpillar secretes an amino acid that the ants need.

4B The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 2:13c Q: This has been a winter of unusually stormy and snowy weather, and it looks like my house isn't holding up too well. After noticing a water stain on an upstairs ceiling I went into the attic and found water stains on several boxes and a general damp smell. Trouble is, there is still ice and snow coating the rooftop, and I don't feel safe going outside. How can I deal with this? George in Virginia A: Climbing onto the roof is definitely not safe in the midst of ice and snow, but you do need to stop water from entering, of course. You can set up a temporary patch from inside the attic, but keep in mind it is very temporary you'll need to check it frequently until warmer weather comes and the roof can be properly repaired. In the attic, trace the water leak to its source. A leak can occur farther up a pitched roof and trickle down the rafters to drip elsewhere. If the water stains follow a path, trace that path upward to where the water marks end and check that area of the roof's underlayment for dam age, holes or apparent water entry points. Sometimes as the sun melts the ice and snow on the roof, you will be lucky (or unlucky) enough to see water actually dripping through. Now that you've located the leak (or leaks), you need to control the direction of the drip, so it no longer runs down the rafters but instead into a bucket to catch the water. Do this by placing a large nail in the center of the leak and tapping it through the roof's sheathing until it reaches the shingle outside. "But Sam," you say, "I'm try ing to fix the leak, not create one!" True, but the damage is already done. For now you need to contain it until a better repair can be made. Underneath the nail you just punched through the underside of the roof, place a bucket to catch drips. Now the water isn't running all over the attic. Next, put on a dust mask and cut away water-damaged insulation from around the hole. This clears the area you need to patch and helps prevent mold growth. Let the area dry for a day or two; hopefully much of the ice and snow will melt from the rooftop during this time. At any rate, you need the underside of the roof to be fairly dry so that a patch will hold. Once the area surrounding the hole is dry to the touch, you can patch it. Remove the nail from the hole. Make sure the area is very dry. You also might want to warm the area slightly with a hair dryer if it's a cold day, so that the patch material adheres. Fill the hole with roofing ce ment or roof patch compound (available at home-improvement stores you'll need just a small amount) and smooth out to the sides. In some cases, with spring coming, this small plug is all you need. But some DIYers add a little insurance by cutting a thin sheet of plywood into a square that extends a couple inches beyond the hole on each side, and tacking that tightly against the hole using roofing cement (not nails). Mark the patched area with brightly colored chalk or some other easy-to-see material. When the weather warms, you or a roofing professional must inspect the roof to locate and repair the damage. as the patch will give you only a few months' reprieve. The roof may be damaged in other areas, or there could be undetected water problems as well. HOME TIP: Proper attic ven tilation is important at all times, but especially when the roof is leaking, as the airflow helps re duce mold growth. Make sure the attic vents aren't blocked by boxes or deliberately closed off. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta Q: I am devastated by the recent death of Philip Seymour Hoffman. Do you know what will become of "Mockingjay"? Jessica W., via email A: Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away last month at the age of 46, had finished "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1" (which is set for release this November), and had one scene left to film for "Mockingjay Part 2" (to be released No vember 2015). That scene, however, was an emotional and pivotal scene, and as of this writ ing, it hasn't been revealed how the filmmakers plan to work around that. A Lionsgate executive told "The Hollywood Reporter": "We're all extraordi narily sad. ... Obviously, we're going to have a couple of workaround issues, but the movie will be creatively whole. His performances in both [remaining] movies will be up to the best of his craft. We feel it will be a good tribute to him." Q: It's good to see Jennifer Lopez back in the saddle as a judge on "American Idol," but I miss seeing her on the big screen. Does she have any plans for a film in the near future? Gigi R., Chicago A: Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis ("The Help") are set to costar together in the film "Lila and Eve." It tells the story of a griefstricken mother (Viola) who, in the aftermath of her son's mur der, attends a support group where she meets Eve (Jennifer), who has lost her daughter. When Lila hits numerous roadblocks from the police in bringing jus tice for her son's slaying, Eve urges Lila to take matters into her own hands to track down her son's killers. The film is sched uled for a late 2014/early 2015 release date, and is expected hit the festival circuit before opening to wider audiences. Q: Please tell me what hap pened to the miniseries "The Assets." It was really good, and I would like to see all of it. Marcia H., via email A: Due to dismal ratings, ABC pulled the eight-part drama after airing only two episodes. At the recent Television Critics Association press tour, ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee said that he was proud of the show, even if its ratings weren't what they were hoping for. He said the remaining six episodes of "The Assets" would be made available at some point in the future either on ABC or ABC.com but no specific time frame was given. Q: I haven't seen Samantha Brown on TV in a very long time. Will I see her again soon? John L., Leesburg, Fla. A: Next up for Samantha is cohosting the Travel Channel's "The Trip: 2014" which also features Adam Richman, Don Wildman and Anthony Mel chiorri as they explore the ultimate insider experiences in Spain and Morocco.

Palmer is expected to play either right or left tackle and is un sure if he will redshirt his freshman season. The Knights are coming off a BCS bowl game victory and fin ished the season ranked 10th in the country. Wildcat Head Coach Buddy Martin said watching Palmer and Brown sign their scholar ships was one of his proudest moments as a coach. They embody what it means to be a student athlete, he said. They gave great ef fort in the classroom and on the field. His parents, West and Laina Palmer, are equally proud of their son. We feel very blessed, said Laina, who is a UCF graduate. She is glad her son is going to remain in the area and she can be to Orlando in a couple hours if needed. West said he is proud to see all of Lukes hard work paying off. He works out every morning and has worked very hard on his footwork in the past, West said. Upcoming Knight freshman Palmer said his best memory as a Wildcat was beating Booker for the second time this season during the second round of the playoffs.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B By GRACE CORONADO Special To The Herald-Advocate Samuel Lopez was born in Chicago, Ill. He was born on Oct. 20, 1950. He grew up in a small neighborhood. Samuel was the middle kid of three brothers and one sister His brothers and sister loved him very much and were somewhat protective. However, he still had a rough childhood. Samuel was bullied while growing up. When he was in the eighth grade, Samuel got pushed and shoved and also made fun of for having glasses and for being a very smart kid who didnt have many friends. He was called a nerd and a dork. Throughout all the troubles, he never gave up on his family or school. Samuel was a boy who was very close to his mother. Samuel didnt have a father. His father died when he was 2 years old, in a tragic car accident. Samuels favorite thing in the world was a charm that his mother gave him. She gave it to him on his birthday when he first turned 12. She told him to keep it with him always because it brings him luck. From that day on Samuel never left the house without it. Samuel loved the music world. It was his little secret. When he came home from school each day, he would go straight to his room, pick up his guitar and sing his heart out. No one really knew that he can sing. He kept it to himself. Samuel says that music was always there when he needed it the most. He listened to the music that had the right lyrics that matched the situations he was going through. Music was his passion and always will be. When Samuel was a senior in high school, he was still getting picked on, He Was Bullied For B eing A Smart Kid still didnt have friends. He met someone named Elinore. Samuel and Elinore got to know each other a lot more. Elinore was Samuel s only friend. They spent every day together. On graduation day, Samuel asked Elinore out to a movie to celebrate their graduation. After that day, Samuel and Elinore started dating, then three years later they officially got married. Exactly one year after, they found out that they couldnt have kids. They wanted two boys but were sad that they couldnt have them. I asked Samuel why he married Elinore and he said, Because she changed my life in ways that I cant explain. It touched my heart to hear Samuel say that because I didnt know love can be so strong. Elinore died from a heart attack 15 years after her marriage with Samuel. Samuels mother died in a car accident on her way to get groceries. Samuels brothers and sisters are all married now and off living with their families. What I noticed about Samuel was that he always seems to smile. So I asked Samuel one last question: What is the story behind your smile? He replied with, There is not a story behind my smile. I smile every day because God gave me the chance to live. Before I left, he told me one last thing: Good things will come out of bad situations as long as you put God first.

Grove activity 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 were ship ping small quantities of fruit. Fifteen of nineteen processing plants were open this season. Livestock and Pastures: Cold weather in the Panhandle challenged livestock and slowed winter pasture growth for a second week. The rains in south Florida helped raise pond levels. The cattle condition for the State was good but the pasture condition was mostly fair. Cattlemen were feeding hay across the State. Cold weather throughout the State contributed to the very poor and poor pasture decline. Field Crops: Cold weather hampered field work for three to four days in the Panhandle. Winter wheat is growing slowly due to cold weather. Fruit and Vegetables: Strawberries were still being harvested in Bradford County. Harvesting of cabbage continued in Flagler and Putnam counties, while planting of potatoes was delayed due to wet conditions. Soil preparation for watermelons was underway in Gilchrist County. Rain and foggy weather increased disease in vegetables with late blight being reported on tomatoes and potatoes in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. Manatee County farmers were planting tomatoes, peppers, and squash, while strawberries were being harvested. Vegetables and fruits marketed in the State included beets, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, lettuce, peppers, radishes, sweet corn, snap beans, tomatoes, herbs, and a variety of specialty items.

10B The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 Pages From The Past From The Herald-Advocate Of Thursday, Feb. 10, 2000 Front-Page Headlines: U.S. 17 May Get Memorial Name: Doyle Parker Fought For 4-Lane 16-Year-Old Accused Of Rape Attempt Dozen Caught In Undercover Snare Man, 74, On Probation In Child-Fondling Case DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have extr emely dry skin. Is there anything I can take orally for it, rather than apply ing moisturizing lotions? J. ANSWER: I don't know any oral medicine for dry skin. I can give you some tips on how to lessen your skin's dryness. Dry skin becomes a problem for many people in the winter, when furnaces are pushing out hot, dry air. Those people, and possibly you, benefit by increasing the humidity of the house to between 40 percent and 60 per cent with a humidifier. Use only mild soaps like Dove or Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser. Don't take long baths or showers, and keep the water temperature warm but not hot. After bathing, pat yourself with a towel, but leave the skin some what damp. That's the time to use a moisturizing product. Petro leum jelly is cheap and effective. If a moisturizer leaves your skin greasy, first rub a small amount between your hands and then apply it to the skin. It's not so much a matter of oil returning to your skin as it is water. Your skin needs hydration. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When I was a little girl, my mother used to warn me about chilblains. I think it was her way of frightening me into dressing the way she wanted me to dress for winter. These days I never hear that word. What are chilblains? Did my mother make up the word? D.G. ANSWER: "Chilblain" is a real word. It's a cold-weather injury that most often strikes the toes, and less often the fingers. It comes about from in tense and prolonged spasms of blood vessels. Blood circulation is greatly decreased. This mostly happens when weather is cold but not freezing. Skin changes might not occur until 12 to 24 hours after expo sure. They consist of purple patches on the toes. They itch or give rise to burning pain. Warmth gets rid of them. Women between the ages of 15 and 30 are the ones most susceptible to this kind of cold injury. Chilblain has another name, "pernio." I never hear either word mentioned. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 79 years old. I take Fos amax for osteoporosis. I also take one 500 mg calcium tablet daily. Is it necessary for me to take both? D.S. ANSWER: Yes, you have to take both. Fosamax works by slowing down the body cells that gnaw on bones. They're supposed to do that. It's the way the body has of constantly renewing bones. The bone destruction is followed by bone buildup. In older ages, bone destruction outpaces bone buildup. Osteoporosis is the result. Fosamax prevents this from happening. However, for the bone cells to build new bone, they need calcium. Without it, they can't get the job done. Older women should be getting 1,200 to 1,500 mg of calcium every day. You also need vitamin D, a vitamin that many of the elderly are deficient in. Vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption. You need all three Fosamax, calcium and vitamin D.

The Family Fun Day hosted in Hardee County last month by NU-HOPE Elder Care Services was a first for the or ganization. And, according to Executive Director Ingra Gardner, a success. The event, held on Jan. 11 at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs, combined a 5K Run/Walk with a good-old-fashioned Family Fun Day and resource and information exhibits. It was the first of two special community events hosted by NU-HOPE in Hardee and Highlands counties. Family Fun Day featured a chocolate-baking competition and a pet costume contest. Two local animal rescue groups, HART and Blessed Critters, brought dogs that were available for adoption. Adults learned more about local resources, while children played games, made crafts and explored emergency vehicles brought by Hardee County FireRescue. The other special community event was the Super Bowl 5K, held on Feb.1 at Highlands Hammock State Park. Following the Super Bowl theme, participants wore team jerseys, tested their knowledge of Super Bowl trivia, and voted on Runner s Choice awards. A total of 65 runners and walkers participated in the two 5Ks. In the Hardee County event, Paula Lunt came in first for the 5K, finishing with a time of 23:24. Warren Bryant finished the one-mile route with a time of 10:57. For the NU-HOPE Super Bowl 5K, Scott Meeks finished first with a time of 23:51. The winner for the onemile route was Noah Nagy, completing it with a time of 12:35. Both events were a big success. However, neither would have been possible without the support of the community, Gardner said. She cited assistance from the Hardee County Commission, the Parks Department, local or ganizations that set up booths for the Family Fun Day, and the participants who came to each event. NU-HOPE has served Hardee and Highlands counties for 39 years with its mission to promote the well-being and independence of senior residents. During this time, our services have allowed thousands of older individuals to maintain their independence and avoid or delay nursing-home place ment, Gardner said. However, we realize that we, alone, cannot fully achieve our mission. Aging impacts us all, and it will take all of us working together to provide our older residents with the support they need to remain independent and vital members of our community. I truly believe that serving seniors strengthens our entire community and makes this a better place to live, she concluded. First NU-HOPE Family Fun Day A Success! COURTESY PHOTOS Runners, young and old, take off at the start of the F amily Fun Day 5K Run/Walk at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs.

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

According to new research, some foods have the same effect on your body as taking a prescription mood-enhancing drug. Do you reach for food or caffeine during the day in an at tempt to feel calm, find a jolt of energy or a moment of bliss? But above all else, do you just really crave a better mood? While good habits such as eating breakfast every morning and regular meals and snacks throughout the day form the cornerstone of an energized outlook, science is revealing the vital ways in which food impacts our mood. And it might surprise you that some of the best weapons to help cure crankiness and boost energy can be found in your local grocery store. The following foods will help your mood in two ways. First, they deliver some key nutrients that help support brain chemistry to reduce the risk of depression and help improve the quality of your sleep. And they do some thing equally important: Powerful combinations of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants help you build up your energy and ca pacity to handle life from your body's deepest levels (your cell's metabolic and energy pathways). This is what we all should aim for, not the quick burst of stimulation from a sugar or caffeine fix that ultimately leaves you feeling cranky or tired. Make these feel-good foods a part of a new happiness and health routine. Dark Chocolate Not only is it delicious, dark chocolate is high in magnesium, a mineral that calms your mus cles and reduces anxiety. It also contains tryptophan, which helps reduce symptoms of depression. Salmon and Walnuts Salmon and walnuts are packed with omega-3s, which help fight off depression and Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis mood swings. Bonus: They also can help improve memory and focus. Spinach This leafy green is stocked with folic acid, a B vitamin that has been found to boost your mood. It's also an antioxidant that works to protect your brain cells from free radicals, which can lead to low energy and mood swings. Chicken The white meat contains B-12, a vitamin that helps to keep you calm. Low B-12 levels can make you moody and tired. Tofu Tofu helps muscles relax, causing a calming effect on your body. Avocado Contains serotonin, a feelgood neurotransmitter. It's also really good for your skin, hair and nails. Greek Yogurt Not only is it a wonder-food, the probiotics in Greek yogurt help boost your mood and im mune system. Green Tea It's full of theanine, an antioxidant that acts as a calming agent. Berries Blueberries, strawberries and raspberries contain anthocyani dins and anthocyanins nutri ents that help reduce stress and depression. Chia and Flax Seeds They have about the same amount of protein per ounce, at 4.4 grams and 5.1 grams respectively. However, chia is one of just a few plant sources that is a complete protein, meaning that it contains all of the needed pro tein-forming amino acids. Both of these seeds are a great way to get more fiber in your diet, but chia has the edge: an ounce gives you 10.6 grams of fiber, or 42 percent of your recommended daily intake, versus 7.6 grams and 31 percent for flax. These seeds also provide dif ferent types of fiber. Chia is one of the richest sources of soluble fiber, the kind that takes longer to get through your digestive tract, which adds bulk and slows glucose absorption. The fiber in flax has been tied to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol. In fact, research has shown an association between daily flax consumption and lower cholesterol. GOOD MOOD SALAD Serve a tall glass of green tea along with this mood-enhancing salad, and follow with 2 ounces of dark chocolate as a sweet finish to lift your mood and nourish your body and your mind! 8 ounces smoked salmon, roughly chopped or 8 ounces of cooked chicken breast, roughly chopped 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced 4 cups baby spinach 1/2 cup fresh blueberries 1/4 cup light feta or blue cheese crumbles 1/4 cup toasted, chopped wal nuts Half a medium red onion, thinly sliced Toss all ingredients together until combined. Drizzle or toss with Greek Yogurt Dressing (recipe follows). Makes 2 servings. Greek Yogurt Dressing 1/2 cup Greek yogurt 4 ounces of soft, silken tofu 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar 1 tablespoon chia or flax seeds 1 tablespoon honey 2 teaspoons stone-ground or grainy mustard 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper Using a blender or a whisk, stir together all ingredients until combined and emulsified. This dressing will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 7 days.

The newest thing to do in Hardee County focuses on all of the fun that can be had on the river while enjoying the peace and quiet which surround it. Peace River Paddle Sports & Kuleana Adventures Inc. was started in December by Trey Flemer, who runs the business with his children, Jared and Jenna Flemer. Before this endeavor, Flemer owned a landscaping business, but his passion for paddle-boarding was strong, so strong that he would invite his friends to join in on the fun. He even ended up collecting several different types of kayaks and canoes for others to use. His passion for paddle-boarding started when he was 8 years old, he explains. When he had children, he passed down his interest for the sport when they were also very young. At Kuleana Adventures, the Flemers rent out equipment for sev eral different types of water sports, including paddle-boarding, kayaking, canoeing, camping, fishing and even fossil-hunting. Another activity, for the brave, is a night tour. If someone is interested but doesnt know the sport or its equip ment, or wants to know where the best spots are, guided tours are available. Flemer has been guiding paddlers through Peace River for over 30 years. Flemer is a certified wind instructor, while all three family members are certified stand-up paddle-board instructors. They also are certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and First Aid, he notes. Typically there are eight people to every guide. And the guides are none other than Trey, Jared and Jenna Flemer. Trey Flemer wants to provide customers with an outstanding paddling experience. He is so committed to giving his customers the best that he is manufacturing a stand-up paddleboard that has several different functions. This new board can be used as a wind surfer and will have the ability to store supplies inside, instead of having to secure items on top of the board, possibly getting in the way. Another thing Flemer wishes to do with his guests is complete a multi-day paddle-boarding and sailing trip on the Peace River. Everyone is encouraged to try these types of water sports, even children. Jenna Flemer said she has had children as young as 2 years old on one of the guided tours. However, they do say to use caution and think about each childs limitations before deciding on whether or not he is ready for this sport. Even people who cant swim can enjoy the fun, as life jackets are provided. Trey Flemer says this is an excellent activity for the whole fam ily. He went on to say that being outdoors is healthy and doing activities as a family makes that family stronger, therefore benefiting each individual person as well as the bond among them. An upcoming event this new business is hosting will include paddle boards, Pilates and yoga. Karen Mirlenbrink, the instructor, will start the day at Thousand Trails campground on Saturday, Feb. 22, at 10 a.m. Land exercises will also be done for those not wanting to get in the water. Lunch will then be had at the train depot, and the day will finish off with a trip down Peace River. Space is limited, if interested email Trey Flemer at kuleanaadventures@gmail.com for more details and prices. If looking for a way to explore more of the Peace River, call the Flemers and book a guided tour or just the supplies needed for going with a group of friends. Prices vary according to how long the trip lasts and how many people go. To reserve equipment, call Trey Flemer at 832-2102, Jared Flemer 832-1381 or Jenna Flemer at 832-1215, or e-mail them anytime at kuleanaadventures@gmail.com.

Cracker Country Is A Big Part Of Florida State Fair In Tampa Ben Dehart, The Cracker Tenor, of Orlando sang at Cracker Country, founded in 1978. Wauchula native Doyle E. Carlton served as Florida governor during the Depression from 1929-1933 and cut his salary from $9,000 to $7,500 to set a good example and reflect the economic times. Mildred and Doyle E. Carlton Jr. of Wauchula were the founders of Cracker Country. The Governors Inn was built in 1912, served as a general store and Post Office in Lily, and was donated by Mr and Mrs. Pat Wilson in 1980. There are portraits of all Florida governors from 1821 to the present. PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY The Carlton House was built in 1885 in W auchula and was the home of Albert Carlton and his wife Martha McEwen Carlton. They had 10 children, including Doyle E. Carlton who later became governor. Lita Swindle of Tampa is making yarn from sheep wool on a spinning wheel and has worked at Cracker Country since its opening in 1978. The Rainey Store during the 1800s was a general store and P ost Office in Ona, with the Rainey family living on the second floor. The home was donated by the Reid Rainey family 1987. Randy Allen and his brother Billy O Kelly of Lithia have a grist mill and grind corn to make white and yellow grits and corn meal. Anna Dawson of Mount Pleasant, S.C., is making a basket from sweetgrass, pine needles, bullrush, and palmet to leaves. Jeanne Best Pastor, a native of Bowling Green and now living in Seffner, is a hostess for Cracker Country. The annual state fair ends Feb. 17. At Governors Inn these portraits are of Charlie Crist, governor from 2007-2011, and current Gov Rick Scott. Scott is seeking re-election this year as a Republican, and Crist is running for governor as a Democrat. February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5C

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7C Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg FLORIDA CATTLEMENS ASSOCIATION RANCH RODEO FINALS Just in case you can t remember back four months, I already did a feature article on the Florida Cattlemens Association Ranch Rodeo Finals and Cowboy Heritage Festival, but it deserves more coverage, so here we go. In February of each year, the ranch rodeo qualifying events begin. In fact, come to the State Fair today (Thursday) for the 2 p.m. performance to see the members of the Carlton Ranch team compete, or at 7 p.m. to watch Charles Robert Stevens III and his teammates rope and brand, doctor, and mug and tie steers and calves, as well as milk wild cows and ride broncs. Brett Johnson is doing the bronc riding for the Carlton Ranches team, and then plans on retiring that event, so come cheer him on in his final competitive ride! In 2013 there were 12 qualifiers, and each winner goes on to the Finals held at the end of September at the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee. But they want 16 teams in the Finals, so some secondand third-place teams got to go, too. (Put the dates of July 18-19 on your calendar for our very own Hardee County Cattlemans Association ranch rodeo!) Hardee County was represented by the Stevens Land & Cattle team, which had won the St. Lucie County Ranch Rodeo, and the Audubon Ranch team, which had won the Hendry County Ranch Rodeo. Unfortunately, the Audubon team had to withdraw just days before, so they were replaced by the Switch Ranch team, another Hardee County entry. And by virtue of a step-uncle who is a longtime resident of Ona, we also had a member on the Sullivan Ranch team. Stevens Land & Cattle is Charles Robert Stevens III, Billy Adams, Marshall Godsey, Cody Storey and Christi Pryor. Switch Ranch is Peck Harris, Brandon Dieter, Chance Wright, Donny Boyd and Dallas Roberts. The Sullivan Ranch team member is Ty Godsey from Iowa, and younger brother to Stevens team member Marshall. The Finals include eight events, and each team competes in four events on Friday night, and the remaining four events on Saturday night, after which the champions are crowned. And those events are bronc riding, calf roping and branding, the stampede race, team doc toring (which is the heading and heeling event), double muggin, wild colt riding, womens team sorting, and the wild cow milking. And our teams did us proud! Switch Ranch won the team roping and branding event, and Stevens Land won the stampede race for the tiny cowgirl that she is, that Christi Pryor can carry a load and still run fast in that dirt! Brandon Dieter received a score of 66 for his bronc ride, followed closely by Marshall Godsey with a 65. Ty Godsey had a low-bucking horse, so his score was only 56. (The winning score was a 73.) When all was said and done, it was the Stevens Land & Cattle team that took the top honors as well as the winners belt buckles and the trophy saddles. This is a win that is well-deserved by this group, as they compete as often as they can. They win regularly, too, but it was just this Finals that had escaped them. So congratulations, yall you are always a pleasure to watch and cheer for! (And sorry, Ty, but Marshall is still the cutest!) Keep these Bits, boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and shell keep you covered. Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! Ty Godsey, of the Sullivan Ranch team (and younger brother to Marshall), takes off for the finish line after saddling and mounting the wild colt in the wild colt racing event. COURTESY PHOTOS BY KATHY ANN GREGG Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land & Cattle team shows off his bronc-riding skills, landing him a score of 65. The Stevens Land & Cattle team wins first place. Shown (from left) are Sarabeth Barthle-Simmons, president of Florida CattleWomen Inc.; Charles Robert Stevens III; Billy Adams; Christi Pryor; Cody Storey; Marshall Godsey; and Wes Williamson, president of the Florida Cattlemen's Association.

A must-see for many patrons is Cracker Country, a Florida set tlement from the 1800s. Life was simpler then. There were no tele visions, computers or cell phones. A Florida cracker meal could be fried salt pork, rice and tomato gravy, collard greens, fried smoked ham, biscuits, cornbread, andchocolate cake, as depicted at the Carlton House. If you like Florida political history, portraits of all the governors from 1821 to 2014 are on display at the Governor’s Inn. An irony isFlorida’s last two governors, Rick Scott and Charlie Crist, will seekthe same job later this year. I noticed five of Florida’s 67 counties bear the same last name of governors, not entirely by coincidence: William P. DuVal, 1822-34; Napoleon B. Broward, 1905-09; Albert Gilchrist, 1909-13; CaryA. Hardee, 1921-25; and John W. Martin, 1925-29. Wauchula nativeDoyle E. Carlton was governor from 1929-33, and his son Doyle E.Carlton Jr. ran for governor, losing to Farris Bryant. ——— The Hardee County Fair will begin Saturday, Feb. 15, and con tinue through Saturday, Feb. 22. It will be held at the Fairgroundsby the Hardee Agri-Civic Center and Hardee High School west ofWauchula. There is something for everyone at the county fair. It is a busy time of the year with the state fair, county fair and Pioneer Park Daysset for Feb. 26 March 2 in Zolfo Springs. ——— There is a big pro wrestling event set for Saturday, April 5, at the Hardee Agri-Civic Center, with seven matches scheduled. Thedoors open at 6:30 with live action at 7 p.m. The main event will be former world champion Rick Flair try ing to take away the Florida heavyweight champion’s belt from 1999Hardee High School graduate Eddie White, “The White Scorpion.”White lives in Wauchula and Plant City and says this will be thebiggest match of his life. ——— Congratulations to CVS for recently announcing the company will stop selling tobacco products by the first of October. The U.S. surgeon general’s report about 50 years ago said to bacco use was harmful to health, and adult smoking rates have de clined from 42 percent to 18 percent. ——— The new Mosaic Streamsong resort in south Polk County on mined land includes two world class golf courses and a 116-roomlodge, great bass fishing, and four restaurants. The resort plans to attract guests from across the U.S. and the world. This is not your ordinary Motel 6 and Waffle House. A California chef recently spent 20 days at Streamsong training staffers on preparing Italian food. He ate lunch this week at DoubleJ Restaurant in Wauchula, reported Judy Wilson. Her son Kevinworks at Streamsong in food preparation. The goal is to be one of the top 10 golf resorts in the world and to prove that great things can be done with land that has been minedfor phosphate. IS YOUR COMPUTER OPEN TO THIEVES? If you're a senior with a com puter, do you know the answersto these questions? What is a keystroke logger?Why should your operating system be set for automatic up dates? If you don't know the an swers, your computer could beat risk for a security breach. Here are the answers: A key stroke logger is a spy programthat logs each keystroke youmake and sends the informationto someone else. Your operatingsystem should be set up for au tomatic updates because thoseupdates will contain securityfeatures you need. Your best bet: Take the com puter to the store where youbought it (or to the Geek Squadat Best Buy) and have them do alittle work on it. Your list of re quests: 1. Scan for viruses;2. Turn on your firewall;3. Get the latest operating system updates and set it to au tomatic; 4. Install a good virus protec tion; 5. Set your system to be very secure as you wander the Inter net. Here's why I suggest the Geek Squad: If you buy the annualplan and something goes wrong,you can call them on the phonefor advice. If it's a complicatedfix, you can give them verbalpermission to get into your com puter remotely. Your next step is to find a teacher who can show you allthe safety and security problemswith the Internet. In general, here are some ac tivities to avoid online: Quizzes(even if they offer prizes), giv ing your real name and any in formation about where you live,social networking sites, datingsites, clicking on links in emailand agreeing to sign up on siteslike LinkedIn.

Wehave downsized andare looking to sellthem. Do you know ofanyone in the second ary market who dealsin them? —Ralph, Coventry, R.I. A: I made several calls, and it seems that no one I contacted isin the market to buy Byers Car olers. I next monitored eBay,where several dozen are postedfor sale. This might be your bestbet. In my opinion, the ByersCarolers that I've seen are offairly recent vintage, most fromthe 1990s. In other words, I don'tthink these Christmas caroler fig urines are quite old or rareenough to be in much demandwith serious collectors. Q: I have a collection of more than 100 salt and peppershakers. Although I don't haveplans to liquidate, I am never theless interested in currentvalues. —Sue, Rio Rancho, N.M.

It features more than1,000 S&Ps made by more than40 makers, including AmericanBisque, Ceramic Arts Studio,Fenton, Goebel, Westmorelandand A.H. Heisey & Company. Although there are al ways exceptions, theS&P's I've spotted inshops and at antiquesmalls have been pricedin the $3-$5 range. Q: My dad was a big Harry Truman fan,and I have several po litical items related to his political campaigns. One ofthe more unusual things is a"Harry Truman for President"license plate. Any value? —Tom, Fenton, Mo. A: I found the license plate referenced in several priceguides, and it appears to beworth about $750. Q: I have a Montblanc foun tain pen, the 432 Stylographic.It is black and was manufac tured sometime before WorldWar II. —Steve, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Your pen should be black with an inlay white star on thecap crown. From 1937, it is val ued at about $300, according to"Collecting Pens" by EdwardKiersh and published by Houseof Collectibles.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKing Features Weekly Service,P.O.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A I always thought that a cardiac arrest was one made by a po liceman with a bad heart. ——— Food for thought ... If you cannot please, then whatever you do don’t appease. This would be like an old bridge over troubled wa ters. ——— They told me in Nashville that I was not that good of a singer, but I shore put a whooping on a note. ——— The foregoing poem, or what you might call it, was recently stated on a television broadcast by syndicated columnist GeorgeWill, to paraphrase if I may, it goes something like this: Nelly was nicked in the belly by the cow. It didn’t really help Nelly any, but it really didn’t cause her any harm. ——— These tree huggers are always hollering what would the world be without trees? I ask the tree huggers, what would the trees bewithout the world? ——— My stingy cousin we call T.W. for Tightwad, well, they say he was having an out-of-body experience but would not go throughwith it because he did not want to leave his billfold. Jokes & Philosophies By Truman A. Thomas ——— My mother told me when I was a little boy that peopl e don’t love each other like they did when she was a little gir l. Because when they seen friends and family arriving on horse and buggy that every body started crying they were so glad to see them coming to visit. Isaid, Mama, times haven’t changed at all here in the 1990s. Sheasked me, why do you say that, Truman? I told her people still crywhen they see you coming. ——— Unfortunately there are those aggrieved souls among us w ho firmly believe that the world is one great big symphony orchestra,and they and they alone are its conductor, directing every movement.I sometimes wonder how many of these poor confused souls arethere in every town, melted into the masses of the national fabric.They are truly the ultimate in what involves self-righteousness. ——— I sometimes wonder if those brave American astronauts ever re turned to the moon, retrieved and returned to Mother Earth with thatpoor hapless dog they left up there. I am sure you have heard aboutit. They called him Rover, remember? ——— By chance have you ever heard of a local funeral home spon soring a safe driver’s month? ——— Like so many of you red-blooded fans I, too, caught the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago. However, I chose those bull-headed,snorting Broncos to win. The way I looked at it how could Seahawksdefeat them, but they did in pad-snapping fashion. In this Super Bowlthe Seahawks wound up with all the soup, and the Broncos woundup with a cracked bowl. ——— I worked on these writings way past one a.m. this morning.

W Wa au uc ch hu ul la a 2:13c Words To Live By A Daily ThoughtTHURSDAY Soak me in Your laundry, O God, and Ill come out clean. Scrub me and Ill have a snow-white life. Tune me into foot-tapping songs; set these once-broken bones to dancing God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life.Psalm 51:7-8,10 (ME)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y Jesus said, But what I tell you is this: Love your ene mies and pray for your persecutors; only then can you be children of your heavenly Fa ther, who makes His sun rise on good and bad alike, and sends His rain on the honest and dishonest. There must be no limit to your goodness, as your heavenly Fathers goodness knows no bounds.Matthew 5:44-45,48 (NEB)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y But He (Jesus the Messiah) was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped and we were healed. All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left Gods path to follow our own. Yet the Lord God has laid on Him the guilt and sins of us all.Isaiah 53:4-6 (NLT)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y And what is it that God has said: That He has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son (Jesus). So whoever believes He is Gods Son has life (eternal); whoever does not believe He is Gods Son does not have life (eternal). I have written this to you who believe in the Son of God so that you may know you have eternal life.I John 5:11-13 (TLB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y Solomon said, Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: fear (re spect, be in awe of) God and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgment, includ ing every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 (NIV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Never act from motives of rivalry or personal vanity, but in humility think more of one another than you do of yourselves. None of you should think only of his own affairs, but each should learn to see things from other peopless point of view.Philippians 2:3-4 (PME)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y People who live good lives respect the Lord, but those who live evil lives dont. Fools dont care if they sin, but honest people work at being right. Evil people will be paid back for their evil ways, and good people will be rewarded for their good ones.Proverbs 14:2,9,14 (NCV) NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR TAX DEEDNOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that GRAY E.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate IDA member Horst Witschonke is upset with fellow mem bers of that board. Witschonke, a recent appointee to the Hardee County In dustrial DevelopmentAu-thority, told the CountyCom-mission on Thursday that“I am being accused of notdoing my job and am going to beinvestigated. “I take that as an affront to my integrity, I am committed todoing my job. They have al ready had ethics charges againstme. If you have a problem withme, tell me,” said Witschonke. He presented a memo to the commission and later asked forit to be printed in the newspaper(see letter to the editor). Witschonke said he had been an engineer with the Environ-mental Protection Agency for 23years, and while working withSuperfund, he was instrumentalin getting nine projects removedfrom the list which hadn’t beenproperly analyzed and were notqualified. That experience leads him to believe some projects in HardeeCounty should have been elimi nated in an open process Commissioners Mike Thomp son and Sue Birge both tookissue with Witschonke’s goalsix, “To identify and re-movecompanies and projects that can not demonstrate viability of fu ture benefit to Hardee County.” Birge said she respected Witschonke’s background andopinions but had a problem withhim calling companies alreadycoming to Hardee County. Afterdiverting to other topics, he fi nally acknowledged that he hadgotten a card from PF Mann atthe park, after it had alreadybeen approved by IDA and wasmoving into the Hardee CountyCommerce Park. “I called Mr. Fister in New York and asked about the PFMann motors. The whole thingwas positive. They were regis tered in Highlands County andnot in Hardee County untillater,” commented Witschonke. He also said he was concerned about companies receivingBrownfield grants, which weresupposed to be for environmen tal remediation. County Man ager Lex Albritton clarifiedthose funds are also to be usedin Enterprise Zone develop ments. The Commerce Park is inan Enterprise Zone. A review of reports from re cent IDA meetings show at theDec. 17 meeting, there are twoentries concerning memberWitschonke. One is his com plaint that board minutes do notinclude public comments ormembers’ opinions. (Minutes ofmost boards include motionsand other actions of the board,not detailed recordings of dis cussions.) The second Dec. 17 entry notes a report on PF Mann com pleting the building and receiv ing equipment. It is noted thatWitschonke “brought up severalquestions regarding the com pany and its products that hadpreviously been discussed ex tensively in previous boardmeetings. “Board member Doug Jensen made a motion to make the sub ject a dead issue and not con tinue to bring it up. It wasseconded by Dottie Conerly andpassed 9-2 with Witschonke andDonald Samuels voting againstit.” The next entry is from the Jan. 14 IDA meeting, at which “theIDA voted to have the CountyCommission, which appoints themembers of the IDA, conduct aperformance review of all mem bers.” The motion was first made by Gene Davis to evaluate recentappointees “because he feltsome members have been work ing against the IDA objective tocreate jobs and encourage eco nomic development.” Member Jim See said he would second the motion “if itwas amended to include allboard members,” which it was.The motion passed unanimouslyand “commissioners are ex pected to discuss the issue at oneof their upcoming meetings.” Witschonke brought it up at last week’s commission meet ing. No date was set to continuereview of IDA members. Role of IDA Board Members Questioned Dear Editor: I took the oath that I will well and faithfully perform the dutiesof the Industrial Devel-opmentAuthority board member. This oath means to me: (1) the protection of public money.Public money is federal moneyauthorized by Congress with ourpresident’s concurrence, thenprovided to states to add theirmoney for further distribution tocounties and cities to implementcredible projects; (2) to followthe President’s Agenda for pro moting “Green Energy”; (3) tocommit to the governor’s initia tive for creating good jobs inFlorida as expeditiously as pos sible; (4) to respect and promotethe attorney general’s commit ment to her Sunshine (law) ini tiative; (5) to find companiesand projects showing a demon strable history and high proba bility of future success inHardee County; and, finally, (6)to identify and remove compa nies and projects that cannotdemonstrate viability of futurebenefit to Hardee County. Companies and projects based on unsubstantiated claims andpromises must be exposed be fore applying for limited publicfunds. Horst Witschonke Editor’s Note :The above letter was distributed to HardeeCounty commissioners at theirFeb. 6 meeting. Witschonke toldcommissioners it was wrong forIDA members to want to investi gate him (see related story). TheIDA does not receive fundingfrom the federal or state govern ment but relies on the 10-year,$42 million Mosaic agreementfor economic development proj ects.

Hardee was without the serv ices of senior leader Steve Me-tayer, who had been injured inthe Jan. 31 game against LakeWales Vanguard. Even withouthis leadership, Hardee made agame of it, before losing to top-seed Sebring on its court 73-55. For the Wildcats, freshman Djes Youth picked up the slack,finishing with 19 points, 11 re bounds, a steal and an assist. He had a lot of help as every other Wildcat also got into thescoring column. Jordan Joneshad nine points, Tyler Helmseight, Marco DeLeon seven,Dustin Smith six, Tyler Smithfour and Livenson Metayer two points. Jones chipped in with four de fensive rebounds, while theSmith brothers each had three.DeLeon picked up a pair ofblocked shots. Jones also hadeight assists and LivensonMetayer had three. On the season statistics, Steve Metayer finished with a 23.5points per game average, witheach of the other players alsojoining in the scoring, rebound ing, blocks, steals, deflectionsand assists. Coach Vance Dickey and staff had a challenging season teach ing the “short” without theheight most other teams had.That will, no, doubt, continueinto the next season as returneesinclude juniors Jordan Jones,Dustin Smith and Tyler Smith,soph Marco DeLeon, and froshDjes Youte and LivensonMetayer.

Sports Quiz By Chris Richcreek DEAR PAWS'S CORNER: I read a report this week thatsaid more and more pets arebeing treated for "marijuanapoisoning" from accidentallyingesting their owners' med ically prescribed marijuana. Isthis true? Why haven't weheard more about it? —Concerned in California DEAR CONCERNED: As the number of states that allow med ical marijuana to be prescribedincreases, it's likely you will hearmore stories about pets being af fected by ingesting this drug. Arecent NBC News report esti mated that calls to the ASPCA'sAnimal Poison Control Centerreporting pet poisonings in creased 30 percent between 2009and 2013. However, Time magazine dis putes that report, noting that theactual number of calls increasedfrom 213 in 2009 to about 320last year — a very small percent age of the 18,000 total calls theAPCC gets each year from own ers. My take on the issue is this: Marijuana is a drug, so ownersneed to use common sense. Youwouldn't leave other prescrip tions lying around for the dog orcat to eat. So don't leave yourstash lying around. Further, many patients use baked goods to ingest marijuanarather than smoking it. "Potbrownies," for example, containchocolate, which is definitelydangerous to dogs and can causesevere symptoms when eaten.The APCC gets far more callsabout poisoning from chocolateingestion than from any othersubstance, Time noted. That said, pet owners who see or suspect their dog or cat has in gested marijuana should contacttheir veterinarian for advice.They also should watch their petfor unusual symptoms, such aslethargy, excessive drooling, di arrhea or incontinence, and takethem to the vet immediately ifthey begin experiencing these orany other problems.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Cody Cowart. In Wauchula if you had a problem with any type of bodywork, you took it to Triangle for a super good repair job. He will be missed. Our sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Herman Moye. We both worked for the same company at one time. Also, Sherman and I would see him and Ruth fishing at Arbuckle Lake. He was a member of Fort Green Baptist but had moved away. We will miss him. Betty Walker had a bad week. It seems when they have to change her medicine she is in for a tough few days. Vicky Owens is still in the Sebring hospital. Gloria Dupree is in Manatee Memorial Hospital in Braden ton. They are not sure what is wrong with her but she is bleeding somewhere internally. She was at the gospel sing in Pal metto, goes every year, and the long and short of it, an ambu lance was called and they took her to the hospital. Beth Sasser was scheduled for surgery last Monday. Pat Gugle, Shaun Casey and Betty Waters were among the ones listed as sick Sunday. Please pray for all of these. Betty Waters was able to attend church but had a few bad days last week. Tonya Fields told me she made the A/B honor roll and was proud of herself, as she should be. Joe Fields is getting along fine after his surgery. Jane Kennedy was not at church last Sunday but we were told she went to church with her son, Dale. It is great to be missed when we are not at church. Kasie Powell competed in a band competition at Braden River High School last Friday and received an excellent award for her saxophone solo. Congratulations, Kasie! She is very versatile as she competed in bowling in Winter Haven on Saturday. She did well but KLynn Simpson, her niece, did re ally well. Kaylee Hogenauer also bowled in Winter Haven but I did not hear the results. The men and boys had a really good time camping out at Hardee Lakes last Friday. They said the wind coming across the lake was really cold and, of course, knowing the young they stayed up all night! They did not act tired but the chaperones sure were! Randi Sasser had to go to Chicago for training and while up there got sick. Beth said at church Sunday morning she was well and returned to Flor-ida. There was a big snowstorm before she returned home and the TV announced 13 degrees there! I am happy down here, and it gets too cold here for me sometimes. I had to go to Pioneer Medical last Friday and Mr. Gill is trying a different cholesterol medicine for me. Any that I have taken makes my legs hurt! Tammy Hellein is his normal nurse and was not in. I asked about her and was told her oldest daughter, Jessica, had her tonsils taken out that day. In the past we have not considered this very serious but since we have all heard on the television about the little girl in a Western state getting paralyzed we are more concerned. Please pray. Anyone who missed the sing at Northside Baptist last Saturday night really missed a treat. Three Southern Gospel quartets sang and they all were super. The Hardee County Fair opens this weekend, and kids day is Monday. Anyone who likes strawberry shortcake needs to stop at the 4-H booth. It is just as good if not better than the Strawberry Festivals, and not nearly as expensive! My group will be working Monday during the day and then another group takes over at 5. Ive just gotten too old to cut the mustard and stay there until 10! Anyway, I wanted to attend the contest Monday night and see Brianna Waters from our church. Makayla Chancey, also from Fort Green, will be in the contest on Saturday. Abby Duke and Karson Goodwyn are in the contest scheduled for the 21st. Pray for one another and our nation. Dusty Spears Named To Deans ListDustin Spears of Bowling Green has been named to the Deans List for the U.A. Whitaker College of Engineering at Florida Gulf Coast University. Spears was recognized for his academic achievement during the fall semester. Dean Richard A. Behr noted that fewer than 15 percent of students attain this distinction. Spears will graduate this May with a Bachelors Degree in civil engineering. He plans to pursue a career in engineering. Last summer, he worked in the Engineering De partment at CF Industries. He recently interviewed with Mo saic Co. Spears is a 2009 graduate of Hardee Senior High School in Wauchula. He is the son of Barbara Spears and James Paugh, and the grandson of Sam Spears. playwright Gertrude Stein who made the following sage observation: "Everybody knows if you are too careful, you are so occupied in being careful that you are sure to stumble over something." when dining out, but restaura teurs take a big risk when adding new items to a menu; it seems that less than a third of diners will actually try a new menu item. award-winning composers and lyricists have been Jewish. should not drive while under the influence of alcohol, but riding a bike? A stationary bike? It seems that in Tennessee in 2007, a woman was arrested at her gym while riding an exercise bicycle while drunk. BUI, or simply disorderly conduct? The record isn't clear. creepy-crawlies, you might not want to read the following tidbit: Researchers have discovered a kind of caterpillar that emits a sound eerily like a human scream. This particular species is often a victim of predatory wasps. When the wasps ap proach, the caterpillar rubs two special organs together to pro duce the sound. The "scream" calls a troop of ants that protect the caterpillar, and in return the caterpillar secretes an amino acid that the ants need. Vermont comes from the French "mont vert," which means "green mountain." (If the explor ers who named the state saw green mountains, they obviously were not there in the winter.)

4B The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 2:13c Q: This has been a winter of unusually stormy and snowyweather, and it looks like myhouse isn't holding up too well.After noticing a water stain onan upstairs ceiling I went intothe attic and found waterstains on several boxes and ageneral damp smell. Trouble is,there is still ice and snow coat ing the rooftop, and I don't feelsafe going outside. How can Ideal with this? —George in Virginia A: Climbing onto the roof is definitely not safe in the midst ofice and snow, but you do need tostop water from entering, ofcourse. You can set up a tempo rary patch from inside the attic,but keep in mind it is very tem porary — you'll need to check itfrequently until warmer weathercomes and the roof can be prop erly repaired. In the attic, trace the water leak to its source. A leak canoccur farther up a pitched roofand trickle down the rafters todrip elsewhere. If the waterstains follow a path, trace thatpath upward to where the watermarks end and check that area ofthe roof's underlayment for dam age, holes or apparent waterentry points. Sometimes as the sun melts the ice and snow on the roof, youwill be lucky (or unlucky)enough to see water actuallydripping through. Now that you've located the leak (or leaks), you need to con trol the direction of the drip, so itno longer runs down the raftersbut instead into a bucket to catchthe water. Do this by placing alarge nail in the center of the leakand tapping it through the roof'ssheathing until it reaches theshingle outside. "But Sam," you say, "I'm try ing to fix the leak, not createone!" True, but the damage is al ready done. For now you need tocontain it until a better repair canbe made. Underneath the nail you just punched through the underside of the roof, place a bucket tocatch drips. Now the water isn'trunning all over the attic. Next, put on a dust mask and cut away water-damaged insula tion from around the hole. Thisclears the area you need to patchand helps prevent mold growth. Let the area dry for a day or two; hopefully much of the iceand snow will melt from therooftop during this time. At anyrate, you need the underside ofthe roof to be fairly dry so that apatch will hold. Once the areasurrounding the hole is dry to thetouch, you can patch it. Remove the nail from the hole. Make sure the area is very dry.You also might want to warm thearea slightly with a hair dryer ifit's a cold day, so that the patchmaterial adheres. Fill the hole with roofing ce ment or roof patch compound(available at home-improvementstores — you'll need just a smallamount) and smooth out to thesides. In some cases, with springcoming, this small plug is all youneed. But some DIYers add a lit tle insurance by cutting a thinsheet of plywood into a squarethat extends a couple inches be yond the hole on each side, andtacking that tightly against thehole using roofing cement (notnails). Mark the patched area with brightly colored chalk or someother easy-to-see material. Whenthe weather warms, you or aroofing professional must inspectthe roof to locate and repair thedamage. as the patch will giveyou only a few months' reprieve.The roof may be damaged inother areas, or there could be un detected water problems as well. HOME TIP: Proper attic ven tilation is important at all times,but especially when the roof isleaking, as the airflow helps re duce mold growth. Make surethe attic vents aren't blocked byboxes or deliberately closed off.Send your questions or home tipsto ask@thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta Q: I am devastated by the re cent death of Philip SeymourHoffman. Do you know whatwill become of "Mockingjay"? —Jessica W., via email A: Philip Seymour Hoffman, who passed away last month atthe age of 46, had finished "TheHunger Games: Mockingjay —Part 1" (which is set for releasethis November), and had onescene left to film for "Mocking jay — Part 2" (to be released No vember 2015). That scene,however, was an emotional andpivotal scene, and as of this writ ing, it hasn't been revealed howthe filmmakers plan to workaround that. A Lionsgate execu tive told "The HollywoodReporter": "We're all extraordi narily sad. ... Obviously, we'regoing to have a couple of work-around issues, but the movie willbe creatively whole. His per formances in both [remaining]movies will be up to the best ofhis craft. We feel it will be agood tribute to him." Q: It's good to see Jennifer Lopez back in the saddle as ajudge on "American Idol," butI miss seeing her on the bigscreen. Does she have anyplans for a film in the near fu ture? —Gigi R., Chicago A: Jennifer Lopez and Viola Davis ("The Help") are set to co-star together in the film "Lila andEve." It tells the story of a grief-stricken mother (Viola) who, inthe aftermath of her son's mur der, attends a support groupwhere she meets Eve (Jennifer),who has lost her daughter. WhenLila hits numerous roadblocksfrom the police in bringing jus tice for her son's slaying, Eve urges Lila to take matters intoher own hands to track down herson's killers. The film is sched uled for a late 2014/early 2015release date, and is expected hitthe festival circuit before open ing to wider audiences. Q: Please tell me what hap pened to the miniseries "TheAssets." It was really good, andI would like to see all of it. —Marcia H., via email A: Due to dismal ratings, ABC pulled the eight-part drama afterairing only two episodes. At therecent Television Critics Associ ation press tour, ABC Entertain ment Group president Paul Leesaid that he was proud of theshow, even if its ratings weren'twhat they were hoping for. Hesaid the remaining six episodesof "The Assets" would be madeavailable at some point in the fu ture — either on ABC orABC.com — but no specifictime frame was given. Q: I haven't seen Samantha Brown on TV in a very longtime. Will I see her again soon? —John L., Leesburg, Fla. A: Next up for Samantha is cohosting the Travel Channel's"The Trip: 2014" — which alsofeatures Adam Richman, DonWildman and Anthony Mel chiorri — as they explore the ul timate insider experiences inSpain and Morocco.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B By GRACE CORONADOSpecial To The Herald-Advocate Samuel Lopez was born in Chicago, Ill. He was born on Oct. 20, 1950. He grew up in a small neighborhood. Samuel was the middle kid of threebrothers and one sister. His brothers andsister lovedhim verymuch andwere some-what protec-tive. However, he still had a roughchildhood. Samuel was bullied while growing up. When he was in the eighth grade,Samuel got pushed and shoved and alsomade fun of for having glasses and forbeing a very smart kid who didn’t havemany friends. He was called a nerd anda dork. Throughout all the troubles, henever gave up on his family or school. Samuel was a boy who was very close to his mother. Samuel didn’t havea father. His father died when he was 2years old, in a tragic car accident. Samuel’s favorite thing in the world was a charm that his mother gave him.She gave it to him on his birthday whenhe first turned 12. She told him to keepit with him always because it brings himluck. From that day on Samuel neverleft the house without it. Samuel loved the music world. It was his little secret. When he came homefrom school each day, he would gostraight to his room, pick up his guitarand sing his heart out. No one reallyknew that he can sing. He kept it to him-self. Samuel says that music was alwaysthere when he needed it the most. Helistened to the music that had the rightlyrics that matched the situations he wasgoing through. Music was his passionand always will be. When Samuel was a senior in high school, he was still getting picked on, He Was Bullied For Being A Smart Kid still didn’t have friends. He met some-one named Elinore. Samuel and Elinoregot to know each other a lot more. Eli-nore was Samuel’s only friend. Theyspent every day together. On graduation day, Samuel asked Elinore out to a movie to celebrate theirgraduation. After that day, Samuel andElinore started dating, then three yearslater they officially got married. Exactlyone year after, they found out that theycouldn’t have kids. They wanted twoboys but were sad that they couldn’thave them. I asked Samuel why he married Elinore and he said, “Because she changedmy life in ways that I can’t explain.” Ittouched my heart to hear Samuel saythat because I didn’t know love can beso strong. Elinore died from a heart attack 15 years after her marriage with Samuel.Samuel’s mother died in a car accidenton her way to get groceries. Samuel’sbrothers and sisters are all married nowand off living with their families. What I noticed about Samuel was that he always seems to smile. So Iasked Samuel one last question: “Whatis the story behind your smile?” He replied with, “There is not a story behind my smile. I smile every day be-cause God gave me the chance to live.” Before I left, he told me one last thing: “Good things will come out ofbad situations as long as you put Godfirst.” Back In Time is the result of a class assignment given to ninth graders atHardee Senior High School.

Grove activity included harvesting, hedgingand topping after harvest, resetting of new trees, pushing of deadgroves and replanting new citrus, mowing, fertilizing and psyllidcontrol. Thirty-nine of 43 packinghouses had opened and were ship ping small quantities of fruit. Fifteen of nineteen processing plantswere open this season. Livestock and Pastures: Cold weather in the Panhandle chal lenged livestock and slowed winter pasture growth for a secondweek. The rains in south Florida helped raise pond levels. The cattlecondition for the State was good but the pasture condition wasmostly fair. Cattlemen were feeding hay across the State. Coldweather throughout the State contributed to the very poor and poorpasture decline. Field Crops : Cold weather hampered field work for three to four days in the Panhandle. Winter wheat is growing slowly due tocold weather. Fruit and Vegetables: Strawberries were still being harvested in Bradford County. Harvesting of cabbage continued in Flagler andPutnam counties, while planting of potatoes was delayed due to wetconditions. Soil preparation for watermelons was underway inGilchrist County. Rain and foggy weather increased disease in veg etables with late blight being reported on tomatoes and potatoes inCharlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. ManateeCounty farmers were planting tomatoes, peppers, and squash, whilestrawberries were being harvested. Vegetables and fruits marketedin the State included beets, cabbage, cucumbers, eggplant, kale, let tuce, peppers, radishes, sweet corn, snap beans, tomatoes, herbs, anda variety of specialty items. -)8:3)5,')>?');+0;3) ?

10B The Herald-Advocate, February 6, 2014 Pages From The Past From The Herald-AdvocateOf Thursday, Feb. 10, 2000 Front-Page Headlines: U.S. 17 May Get Memorial Name: Doyle Parker Fought For 4-Lane 16-Year-Old Accused Of Rape Attempt Dozen Caught In Undercover Snare Man, 74, On Probation In Child-Fondling Case DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have extremely dry skin. Isthere anything I can takeorally for it, rather than apply ing moisturizing lotions? —J. ANSWER: I don't know any oral medicine for dry skin. I cangive you some tips on how tolessen your skin's dryness. Dry skin becomes a problem for many people in the winter,when furnaces are pushing outhot, dry air. Those people, andpossibly you, benefit by increas ing the humidity of the house tobetween 40 percent and 60 per cent with a humidifier. Use only mild soaps like Dove or Cetaphil Gentle Skin Clean-ser. Don't take long baths or show ers, and keep the water tempera ture warm but not hot. Afterbathing, pat yourself with atowel, but leave the skin some what damp. That's the time to usea moisturizing product. Petro leum jelly is cheap and effective.If a moisturizer leaves your skingreasy, first rub a small amountbetween your hands and thenapply it to the skin. It's not so much a matter of oil returning to your skin as it iswater. Your skin needs hydration. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When I was a little girl, mymother used to warn me about chilblains. I think it was herway of frightening me intodressing the way she wantedme to dress for winter. These days I never hear that word. What are chilblains?Did my mother make up theword? —D.G. ANSWER: "Chilblain" is a real word. It's a cold-weather in jury that most oftenstrikes the toes, and lessoften the fingers. Itcomes about from in tense and prolongedspasms of blood ves sels. Blood circulationis greatly decreased.This mostly happenswhen weather is coldbut not freezing. Skin changes might not occur until 12 to 24 hours after expo sure. They consist of purplepatches on the toes. They itch orgive rise to burning pain.Warmth gets rid of them. Womenbetween the ages of 15 and 30are the ones most susceptible tothis kind of cold injury. Chilblain has another name, "pernio." I never hear eitherword mentioned. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 79 years old. I take Fos amax for osteoporosis. I alsotake one 500 mg calcium tabletdaily. Is it necessary for me totake both? —D.S. ANSWER: Yes, you have to take both. Fosamax works by slowing down the body cells that gnawon bones. They're supposed to dothat. It's the way the body has ofconstantly renewing bones. Thebone destruction is followed bybone buildup. In older ages, bonedestruction outpaces bone buildup. Osteoporosisis the result. Fosamaxprevents this from hap pening. However, for the bone cells to buildnew bone, they needcalcium. Without it,they can't get the jobdone. Older womenshould be getting 1,200 to 1,500 mg of calcium everyday. You also need vitamin D, a vi tamin that many of the elderlyare deficient in. Vitamin D is es sential for calcium absorption.You need all three — Fosamax,calcium and vitamin D.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.

The Family Fun Day hosted in Hardee County last month byNU-HOPE Elder Care Serviceswas a first for the organization. And, according to Executive Director Ingra Gardner, a suc cess. The event, held on Jan. 11 at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs,combined a 5K Run/Walk witha good-old-fashioned FamilyFun Day and resource andinformation exhibits. It was thefirst of two special communityevents hosted by NU-HOPE inHardee and Highlands counties. Family Fun Day featured a chocolate-baking competitionand a pet costume contest. Twolocal animal rescue groups,HART and Blessed Critters,brought dogs that were avail able for adoption. Adultslearned more about local re-sources, while children playedgames, made crafts and ex-plored emergency vehiclesbrought by Hardee County Fire-Rescue. The other special community event was the Super Bowl 5K,held on Feb.1 at HighlandsHammock State Park. Follow-ing the Super Bowl theme, par ticipants wore team jerseys,tested their knowledge of SuperBowl trivia, and voted onRunner’s Choice awards. A total of 65 runners and walkers participated in the two5Ks. In the Hardee County event, Paula Lunt came in first for the5K, finishing with a time of23:24. Warren Bryant finishedthe one-mile route with a timeof 10:57. For the NU-HOPESuper Bowl 5K, Scott Meeksfinished first with a time of23:51. The winner for the one-mile route was Noah Nagy,completing it with a time of12:35. “Both events were a big suc cess. However, neither wouldhave been possible without thesupport of the community,”Gardner said. She cited assistance from the Hardee County Commission, the Parks Department, localorganizations that set up boothsfor the Family Fun Day, and theparticipants who came to eachevent. NU-HOPE has served Hardee and Highlands counties for 39years with its mission to pro mote the well-being and inde pendence of senior residents. “During this time, our servic es have allowed thousands ofolder individuals to maintaintheir independence and avoid ordelay nursing-home place ment,” Gardner said. “How-ever, we realize that we, alone,cannot fully achieve our mis sion. Aging impacts us all, andit will take all of us workingtogether to provide our olderresidents with the support theyneed to remain independent andvital members of our communi ty. “I truly believe that serving seniors strengthens our entirecommunity and makes this abetter place to live,” she con cluded.

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

Accordingto new research, some foodshave the same effect on yourbody as taking a prescriptionmood-enhancing drug. Do you reach for food or caf feine during the day in an at tempt to feel calm, find a jolt ofenergy or a moment of bliss? Butabove all else, do you just reallycrave a better mood? While good habits such as eat ing breakfast every morning andregular meals and snacksthroughout the day form the cor nerstone of an energized outlook,science is revealing the vitalways in which food impacts ourmood. And it might surprise youthat some of the best weapons tohelp cure crankiness and boostenergy can be found in your localgrocery store. The following foods will help your mood in two ways. First,they deliver some key nutrientsthat help support brain chemistryto reduce the risk of depressionand help improve the quality ofyour sleep. And they do some thing equally important: Power ful combinations of vitamins,minerals and antioxidants helpyou build up your energy and ca pacity to handle life from yourbody's deepest levels (your cell'smetabolic and energy pathways).This is what we all should aimfor, not the quick burst of stimu lation from a sugar or caffeinefix that ultimately leaves youfeeling cranky or tired. Make these feel-good foods a part of a new happiness andhealth routine. Dark Chocolate Not only is it delicious, dark chocolate is high in magnesium,a mineral that calms your mus cles and reduces anxiety. It alsocontains tryptophan, which helpsreduce symptoms of depression. Salmon and Walnuts Salmon and walnuts are packed with omega-3s, whichhelp fight off depression and KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis mood swings. Bonus: They alsocan help improve memory andfocus. Spinach This leafy green is stocked with folic acid, a B vitamin thathas been found to boost yourmood. It's also an antioxidantthat works to protect your braincells from free radicals, whichcan lead to low energy and moodswings. Chicken The white meat contains B-12, a vitamin that helps to keep youcalm. Low B-12 levels can makeyou moody and tired. Tofu Tofu helps muscles relax, causing a calming effect on yourbody. Avocado Contains serotonin, a feelgood neurotransmitter. It's alsoreally good for your skin, hairand nails. Greek Yogurt Not only is it a wonder-food, the probiotics in Greek yogurthelp boost your mood and im mune system. Green Tea It's full of theanine, an antiox idant that acts as a calmingagent. Berries Blueberries, strawberries andraspberries contain anthocyani dins and anthocyanins — nutri ents that help reduce stress anddepression. Chia and Flax Seeds They have about the same amount of protein per ounce, at4.4 grams and 5.1 grams respec tively. However, chia is one ofjust a few plant sources that is acomplete protein, meaning that itcontains all of the needed pro tein-forming amino acids. Bothof these seeds are a great way toget more fiber in your diet, butchia has the edge: an ounce givesyou 10.6 grams of fiber, or 42percent of your recommendeddaily intake, versus 7.6 gramsand 31 percent for flax. These seeds also provide dif ferent types of fiber. Chia is oneof the richest sources of soluble fiber, the kind that takes longerto get through your digestivetract, which adds bulk and slowsglucose absorption. The fiber inflax has been tied to lower LDL(bad) cholesterol. In fact, re search has shown an associationbetween daily flax consumptionand lower cholesterol. GOOD MOOD SALAD Serve a tall glass of green tea along with this mood-enhancingsalad, and follow with 2 ouncesof dark chocolate as a sweet fin ish to lift your mood and nourishyour body and your mind!8 ounces smoked salmon,roughly chopped or 8 ounces ofcooked chicken breast, roughlychopped1 avocado, peeled, pitted anddiced4 cups baby spinach1/2 cup fresh blueberries1/4 cup light feta or blue cheesecrumbles1/4 cup toasted, chopped wal nutsHalf a medium red onion,thinly sliced Toss all ingredients together until combined.

The newest thing to do in Hardee County focuses on all of the fun that can be had on the river while enjoying the peace and quietwhich surround it. Peace River Paddle Sports & Kuleana Adventures Inc. was started in December by Trey Flemer, who runs the business with hischildren, Jared and Jenna Flemer. Before this endeavor, Flemer owned a landscaping business, but his passion for paddle-boarding was strong, so strong that hewould invite his friends to join in on the fun. He even ended up col lecting several different types of kayaks and canoes for others touse. His passion for paddle-boarding started when he was 8 years old, he explains. When he had children, he passed down his interestfor the sport when they were also very young. At Kuleana Adventures, the Flemers rent out equipme nt for sev eral different types of water sports, including paddle-boarding,kayaking, canoeing, camping, fishing and even fossil-hunting. An other activity, for the brave, is a night tour. If someone is interested but doesn’t know the sport or its equip ment, or wants to know where the best spots are, guided tours areavailable. Flemer has been guiding paddlers through Peace Riverfor over 30 years. Flemer is a certified wind instructor, while all three family members are certified stand-up paddle-board instructors. They alsoare certified in cardiopulmonary resuscitation and First Aid, henotes. Typically there are eight people to every guide. And the guides are none other than Trey, Jared and Jenna Flemer. Trey Flemer wants to provide customers with an “outstanding paddling experience.” He is so committed to giving his customers the best that he is manufacturing a stand-up paddleboard that has several differentfunctions. This new board can be used as a wind surfer and will havethe ability to store supplies inside, instead of having to secure itemson top of the board, possibly getting in the way. Another thing Flemer wishes to do with his guests is complete a multi-day paddle-boarding and sailing trip on the Peace River. Everyone is encouraged to try these types of water sports, even children. Jenna Flemer said she has had children as young as 2 yearsold on one of the guided tours. However, they do say to use cautionand think about each child’s limitations before deciding on whetheror not he is ready for this sport. Even people who can’t swim can enjoy the fun, as life jackets are provided. Trey Flemer says this is an excellent activity for the whole f am ily. He went on to say that being outdoors is healthy and doing ac tivities as a family makes that family stronger, therefore benefitingeach individual person as well as the bond among them. An upcoming event this new business is hosting will include paddle boards, Pilates and yoga. Karen Mirlenbrink, the instructor,will start the day at Thousand Trails campground on Saturday, Feb.22, at 10 a.m. Land exercises will also be done for those not wantingto get in the water. Lunch will then be had at the train depot, and the day will finish off with a trip down Peace River. Space is limited, if interested e-mail Trey Flemer at kuleanaadventures@gmail.com for more detailsand prices. If looking for a way to explore more of the Peace River, call the Flemers and book a guided tour or just the supplies needed forgoing with a group of friends. Prices vary according to how longthe trip lasts and how many people go. To reserve equipment, call Trey Flemer at 832-2102, Jared Fle mer 832-1381 or Jenna Flemer at 832-1215, or e-mail them anytimeat kuleanaadventures@gmail.com.

There are portraits of all Floridagovernors from 1821 to the present.

February 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7C Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg FLORIDA CATTLEMEN’S ASSOCIATION RANCH RODEO FINALS Just in case you can’t remember back four months, I already did a feature article on the Florida Cattlemen’s Association RanchRodeo Finals and Cowboy Heritage Festival, but it deserves morecoverage, so here we go. In February of each year, the ranch rodeo qualifying events begin. In fact, come to the State Fair today (Thur sday) for the 2 p.m. performance to see the members of the Carlton Ranch teamcompete, or at 7 p.m. to watch Charles Robert Stevens III and histeammates rope and brand, doctor, and mug and tie steers and calves,as well as milk wild cows and ride broncs. Brett Johnson is doing the bronc riding for the Car lton Ranches team, and then plans on retiring that event, so come cheer him on inhis final competitive ride! In 2013 there were 12 qualifiers, and each winner goes on to the Finals held at the end of September at the Silver Spurs Arena inKissimmee. But they want 16 teams in the Finals, so some second-and third-place teams got to go, too. (Put the dates of July 18-19 onyour calendar for our very own Hardee County Cattleman’s Asso ciation ranch rodeo!) Hardee County was represented by the Stevens Land & Cattle team, which had won the St. Lucie County Ranch Rodeo, and theAudubon Ranch team, which had won the Hendry County RanchRodeo. Unfortunately, the Audubon team had to withdraw just daysbefore, so they were replaced by the Switch Ranch team, anotherHardee County entry. And by virtue of a step-uncle who is a long-time resident of Ona, we also had a member on the Sullivan Ranchteam. Stevens Land & Cattle is Charles Robert Stevens III, Billy Adams, Marshall Godsey, Cody Storey and Christi Pryor. Switch Ranch is Peck Harris, Brandon Dieter, Chance Wright, Donny Boyd and Dallas Roberts. The Sullivan Ranch team member is Ty Godsey from Iowa, and younger brother to Stevens’ team member Marshall. The Finals include eight events, and each team compete s in four events on Friday night, and the remaining four events on Saturdaynight, after which the champions are crowned. And those events arebronc riding, calf roping and branding, the stampede race, team doc toring (which is the heading and heeling event), do uble muggin’, wild colt riding, women’s team sorting, and the wild cow milking. And our teams did us proud!Switch Ranch won the team roping and branding event, and Stevens Land won the stampede race – for the tiny cowgirl that sheis, that Christi Pryor can carry a load and still run fast in that dirt!Brandon Dieter received a score of 66 for his bronc ride, followedclosely by Marshall Godsey with a 65. Ty Godsey had a low-buck ing horse, so his score was only 56. (The winning score was a 73.) When all was said and done, it was the Stevens Land & Cattle team that took the top honors as well as the winner’s belt bucklesand the trophy saddles. This is a win that is well-deserved by this group, as they com pete as often as they can. They win regularly, too, but it was just thisFinals that had escaped them. So congratulations, y’all — you arealways a pleasure to watch and cheer for! (And sorry, Ty, but Mar shall is still the cutest!) Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! Ty Godsey, of the Sullivan Ranch team (and youngerbrother to Marshall), takes off for the finish line after sad dling and mounting the wild colt in the wild colt racingevent. COURTESY PHOTOS BY KATHY ANN GREGG Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land & Cattle team showsoff his bronc-riding skills, landing him a score of 65. The Stevens Land & Cattle team wins first place.
