By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Continuum Labs has informed the Industrial Develop-ment Authority it will seek anadditional $2 million in countyeconomic development funds ifthe company can secure $5 mil lion in private money. If approved, it would bring the local board’s investment inthe startup technology companyto $9.25 million since 2011. Continuum CEO Travis Bond told the IDA board of his inten tions Wednesday at a specially called meeting. Bond said he feels the com pany is making significant mo mentum, and stated he is closeto securing $5 million in fundingfrom a venture capital firm. Hesaid he expects that deal to be fi nalized in days. He wants the IDA to con tribute $1 million by October2014 and an additional $1 mil lion in May 2015, provided hehas the required private capitalin hand and additional jobs inplace. Bond said the company cur rently has “about 11” employ ees, and that he would guaranteea total of 36 jobs by September2014 and an additional four byMay 2015 if the board approvedhis request. He said 80 percent of the jobs would be full-time. Board member Dottie Conerly said she felt Bond’s monthlyupdate to the board was the mostencouraging report he has deliv ered so far. Bond said the addition of pri vate capital should give the IDAboard additional confidence inthe project. “A venture capitalfirm does more due diligencethan you can even get your headaround,” Bond said. “We createda business model that is highlydependent on this town.” Bond felt his company could begin paying its own expensesby October 2014 and begin pay ing rent to the IDA for using theTech River facility by July2015. Bond expects significant growth in 2014. He said talks with firms about providing a second roundof capital, in the $10 millionrange, later in the year are pro gressing well. He said currently CareSync has 5,000 customers but proj ects having 50,000 to 100,000by the end of the year. He ex pects to sign deals with both aspecialty hospital and specialtyinsurance plans this year. Bondsaid the company has added1,700 users since JanuarySee $2 MILLION 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Over 200, about two percent of those who use Wauchula util ities, could be paying $135 to$175 more on their monthlybills. If the second, and final, read ing of an ordinance at Mondaynight’s meeting is approved,those people who consistentlyfail to pay their bills, get cutoffand reconnected will find that itis nearly four times as expensiveto do so. The Wauchula City Commission struggled with late-payingcustomers, deposits and securitylight charges during its work shop on Monday evening. The results will be included in the proposed ordinance first readin November and finalized forthis Monday’s meeting, whichwill be at 6 p.m. in CommissionChambers in Historic City Hall,225 E. Main St., Wauchula. The commission also dis cussed impact fees, which willcome up for finalization at a fu ture meeting. Utility Bills City Manager Terry Atchley explained the situation. Accord-ing to the meter reader routes,each utility user receives a bill atabout the same time each month.If it’s the 12th this month, it willbe the 12th next month and soon. When a bill is mailed, it is due upon receipt, even as phone,cable, credit card and other bills.Each has a due date on it and be comes late and subject to latefees, interest charges and what ever if not paid on time. In Wauchula, the due date for a utility bill is about three weeksafter it is sent.

In all, 40 criminal counts were levied, ranging from failing toprovide support to a child topossessing marijuana to sellingmeth near a church. Sheriff’s Maj. Randy Dey said the day-long roundup was theculmination of months of detec tive work and part of SheriffArnold Lanier’s semi-annualcorralling of suspects in drugcases. Those cases, he explained, are developed throughout the yearusing tips, word heard on thestreet and surveillance informa tion. Many are finalized with theuse of confidential informants,he noted. And, because of that, arrest warrants are held until rounduptime, as Drug Task Force mem bers are careful not to “burn”their informants. “Sheriff Lanier wants a roundup done at least a coupletimes a year to let everyoneknow we will not tolerate drugactivity,” Dey said. Users and traders may come to feel they have not been de tected, but still an arrest may fol low at any time. “We’re out there,” Dey warned. “If you are using drugs,we are going to come after you. “There are people who think this is a victimless crime,” themajor went on to say. “This isnot a victimless crime. Drugusers and sellers ignore theirfamilies, neglect their childrenand steal to fund their habit.” Friday’s roundup put 15 extra officers out on the street, findingand serving the collection of ar rest warrants. While armed withthe drug-related warrants, offi cers also found a couple sus pects wanted in other cases. In all, 15 were arrested here or elsewhere. Booked into theHardee County Jail were: Amy Disharoon, 46, of 403 Bell St., Wauchula; possessionof methamphetamine, posses sion of narcotics equipment, ob struction of police executing awarrant; $2,000 bond; bonded.

Kelly’s Column By Jim The Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday donated $2,000 to the Hardee High School Academic Team, which has 20 members andis coached by Rachel Thompson. The team is hoping to win a statetitle in April in Orlando. The team was second in 2013 and third in2012. ——— Charles Cannon, 87, of Wauchula this week at Bowl of Fun Lanes in Wauchula bowled games of 85 and 173. He carries a 139average. For over 50 years he bowled in the Wednesday NightLeague. About two years ago Cannon had a knee replacement. ——— The current national debt is $17.4 trillion. The annual budget deficit has been dropping the past three or four years. The stock mar ket has done well the past few years. Ideally it would be good for the U.S. to have a budget surplus and begin paying down the national debt. National and internationaleconomics is a complex subject, with many variables. Fortunatelythe U.S. can expand the money supply but printing too much newmoney has dangers, including inflation and a lower v alue of the dol lar. ——— The three new parking lots in downtown Wauchula are land scaped and look very nice. The city appears poised for some qualitygrowth over the next decade. ——— About 40 people participated in a poker tournament Saturday night at Torrey Oaks Golf Club as a fundraiser for the Hardee Ath letic Foundation. The foundation holds a poker tourney twice a year.The rewards for the top three finishers are $500, $300 and $200. ——— The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do, according to Rotary International’s motto, is ... First, is it the truth? Second, is it fair to all concerned? Third, will it build goodwill and better friendships? Fourth, will it be ben eficial to all concerned? PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY This part of W.H. Hart Cabin, built in 1879, is now located at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. The original cabin was built in the Lemon Grove area on Maud e Road by William Henry Hart (1840-1921) and his wife Mary Jane (1843-1909). They came to this area in a covered wagon drawn by horses and mules. The young couple with three s mall chil dren came from Thomasville, Ga., and were one of six families to m ove from Georgia to Florida at the same times. Hart had fought in the War Between The States and was cap tured in Mississippi during the war and held as a prisoner. He carri ed a wallet made from a bobcat hide and given to him by his sister. The couple to ok advantage of the Homestead Act signed by President Chester Arthur and settled on 160 acres By building a home and improving the property for five years they could keep the land They raised cattle and oranges and had a large garden. What was left of the cab in was donated by Wilma Smith and her husband Wendell Smith, 89, who is Hart’s great-gra ndson. Smith has been giving tours of the cabin at Pioneer Park Days for 30 years. The original home site was 11 miles northeast of Pioneer Park. The Harts had four dau ghters and three sons. The heirs still maintain the Hart Family Cemetery, founded in 18 85. Smith was a lineman for 30 years for Florida Power Corporation. The photos show the cabin and Wilma and Wendell Smith. HARDEE HISTORY Gas prices finished February with the largest increase sinceJuly. The national average rose 21 days in a row, reaching 17 centsper gallon (five percent) over thecourse of the month. It was thelongest consecutive streak sinceFebruary 2013. The nation’s gas prices aver aged $3.34 a gallon in February,the cheapest monthly averagesince 2011. In prior years, Feb ruary’s gas prices averaged$3.65 in 2013, $3.55 in 2012and $3.17 in 2011. “AAA forecasts the price of gas will continue to rise wellinto March and April,” saidMark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA— The Auto Club Group. “De spite the projected rise in pumpprices, it’s expected that priceswill remain less expensive thanlast year’s peak of $3.79 per gal lon,” he added. Gas prices typically rise this time of year because many re fineries cut production to con duct seasonal maintenance,which can limit gasoline sup plies and cause market uncer tainty. The majority of GulfCoast refineries, the primarysource of fuel in southeasternstates, should conclude mainte nance in midto late March, as suming no major repairs keeprefineries offline for an extendedperiod of time. Crude oil is another contribut ing factor to the price at thepump. The price of oil repre sents about two-thirds of thecost of gasoline, and producersgenerally pass along increasedoil costs to consumers in theform of higher gas prices. The price of domestic West Texas Intermediate crude oil in creased about $5 per barrel thismonth. The price for a barrel ofoil settled Friday on theNYMEX at $102.59 — 39 centsmore than last week. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleadedgasoline is $3.46, five centsmore than last week. Florida'saverage of $3.45 is the same aslast week.

Citizen Bob Cole told the board it should not base a deci sion to give Continuum Labs anadditional $2 million on the factthat the IDA was already sodeeply invested in the project. In October 2013, the board agreed to give the company$990,000 and conduct an auditof the expenses to date, and ex pected it to take 120 days tocomplete. The scope of the auditwas not determined at the timeof that vote. Now the IDA is planning on conducting an “agreed upon pro cedures” review, which willlook at a random sampling of 25percent up to 100 percent of thecompany’s transactions, depend ing on the cost and time frame tocomplete. Mike Carter with Clifton-Lar sonAllen, who is conducting thereview for the IDA, will bringthe different options back to theboard to vote on. At a September 2013 IDA meeting, Bond said he expectedto add 49,085 users in 2014 andgenerate $16 million in revenuesduring the year. He also projected 200 CareSync record specialist jobswould be created in 2014, witha payroll of $9 million. and he has a commitment to addanother 4,000 users in April. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said he wanted theboard to approve drawing up acontract to bring back for reviewand approval at the next IDAmeeting on March 13. “I want toknow if this board will commit$2 million contingent upon jobnumbers and the additional $5million in private capital,” hesaid. Donald Samuels said he wanted an audit completed onthe company before the boardconsidered additional funding. Jim See made the funding motion and Monica Reas wasthe second. It passed 6-2. Samuels and Horst Witschonke voted against the motionwhile Gene Davis, See, Reas,Mike Prescott, Conerly and JohnO’Neal voted in favor of prepar ing the contract to bring back forreview and approval. Board members Diana Youmans, Doug Jensen and LoryDurrance did not attend themeeting. Citizen Frank Kirkland said numerous medical apps are onthe market and did not knowhow competitive CareSyncwould be. paid on time, a phone call (inSpanish or English) is made tothe number given on the payee’saccount. Three days later, a dis connect notice is hand deliveredto the residence. If it is not paid,utilities are immediately discon nected. Old method: In the past, it has cost $15 for a late fee, $15 for adisconnect and $15 for recon nection, a total of $45, whichhas apparently not been a prob lem for those few residents whochoose to ignore payment duedates and notices until theydon’t have utilities. New method: Now the cost of a late notice will be $30. It willbe $45 for a disconnect notice tobe hand delivered. When utilities are discon nected, a person who comes tothe city administrative offices at126 S. Seventh Ave., Wauchula,to be reconnected will have topay the overdue bill and all fees,including a $60 reconnect fee ifthey come in before 4 p.m. If itis between 4 and 5 p.m., the re connect fee is $100 because thelinemen workday is 7 a.m. to 4p.m. and they have to be paidovertime to work past 4 p.m. Should a person not come in before 5 p.m. when utilities havebeen disconnected, there are noevening reconnect services, itwill have to wait until the fol lowing day, when the 8 a.m. to 4p.m. reconnect fee is $60 andups to $100 if they come in be tween 4 and 5 p.m. Atchley explained the need to meet the extra expenses causedby consistently late bill payers,most of which are able to paytheir bills on time and justchoose not to. For someone in atrue one-time emergency, suchas being called out of town for afuneral or other tragedy, if some one in the family notifies thecity offices, staff will work withthem to handle it, he said. Deposits Historically, utility deposits have been determined by look ing at the past usage at that ad dress, averaging the highest sixmonths bills and doubling that.If it is a new house, it is basedon what average bills for thatsize house run. The new method will be using a third-party provider, UtilityExchange, to do a basic or softcredit check and issue a ratingfor the prospective customer,who pays a non-refundable $25fee for this service. The servicewill issue a rating of green, yel low or red. If a person’s rating is very good--green, there will be no de posit fee. If it is yellow, neitherbad nor good, the deposit feewill be one times the 12-monthaverage of past utility bills atthat address. If, however, a person has a red or bad credit rating, the depositwill be two times the 12-monthaverage. If bills are paid consistently on time for two years or more,the deposit can be reimbursed. Security Lights The cost for yard or security lights will increase by $5. For 100-watt, the monthly charge is $13.50, 250-watt is$18, 350-watt is $23 and 1,000-watt is $40. Where there is an existing pole, installation of yard-lightfixtures is $75. When it is nec essary to install a pole and theyard-light fixtures, the cost is$250. Impact fees When there is already a water/sewer line going past aresidence, whose owner wantsto change from a well to cityservices, the impact fee will bemuch less than the average$3,000 for a new residencewhere a line has to be estab lished for service to be provided.How much these changes arewill be decided at a later meet ing. “It’s just part of our efforts to help residents and be fair andconsistent with them, “ con cluded Atchley.

PHOTO BY JIM KELLY On Thursday, Feb. 27, grapefruit were being unloaded at Chapman Fru it Company in Wauchula from small trucks into large trailers before going to a juic e plant. The early and mid-season orange harvest was over, and the valencia orange harvest seas on was soon to begin. The Florida grapefruit crop is about 18 to 19 million boxes compared to about 115 million boxes of oranges. Citrus is a major part of Hardee County’s economy, along with cattle, phosphate mining, electrical power generation, and vegetable farm ing. UNLOADING GRAPEFRUIT USF Study Analyzes IDA’s Performance $42,000. The IDA did not fund any projects from 2007 to 2009 dueto a lack of available dollars foreconomic development becauseof changes in how the phosphateseverance taxes were dispersed.This was before the Mosaicagreement came to fruition. In 2010 the IDA gave $5.45 million to three companies. Forestwood Design LLC, Keyplex and Rapid Systems re ceived a combined $5.450 mil lion in incentives and produced31 direct jobs. That equaled acost of $175,806 per job created. Much of the $2 million given to Rapid Systems was used forinfrastructure to build the wire less broadband network acrossHardee County. Forestwood Design went out of business. The IDA purchasedits building in the CommercePark and later sold it to Nutra Pure/Seychelles Organics,which received $460,000 in in centives during 2011 and cre ated 19 direct jobs, for a cost ofjust more than $24,000 per job. On average, the 133 direct jobs created cost the IDA$70,751 in incentives. Businesses supported by the IDA added $6.9 million in prop erty to the tax roll that has re sulted in nearly $493,365 inadditional tax dollars, withHardee County receiving$251,949 during the period andthe Hardee County SchoolBoard collecting $216,019. Revenues received by the IDA over the six years totaled$6,327,849, with the majority ofthe budget coming from the 10-year, $42 million Mosaic Agree ment. The agreement began in2010 and contributed $1.5 mil lion in 2010 and $3.5 million in2011. Other revenues were $793,231 from land sales in theCommerce Park, $238,785 inrental income and $295,834 infruit sales from the grove on theproperty the board purchased toexpand the Commerce Park. The IDA also received grants from the Economic Devel-op ment Authority totaling$5,627,370. Some of the EDAmoney was used to erect specbuildings and the rest was com bined with IDA funds for jointprojects. Impact DataSource said in the report it does not suggest theIDA caused all the investmentsand growth presented in the re port but felt it was important tothe local economy. “Impact DataSource believes that such a one-stop center foreconomic development servicesis critical to a community’s eco nomic growth and many of theseinvestments may not have oc curred without the efforts of theIDA,” the report states. “The direct economic activity generated by these firms ripplethrough the local economyspurring spin-off impacts,” itstates. The cumulative impact on economic impact created by thenew businesses, which measurespurchases by the businesses andpurchases made by the workers,totaled $161 million in 2011 andhas continued to increase. The report does not include projects that began after 2011. Projects started after 2011 in clude Continuum Labs and TechRiver, EZ Products, HardeeLakes improvements, PF Manu facturing, sewer/water corridorimprovements, the Sheriff’s Of fice outpost, $1 million ear marked for Bio-nitrogen,Florikan moving its operationhere, and the $1.6 million incu bator/business ac-celerator proj ect. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Industrial Development Authority got the results of astudy by the University of SouthFlorida, which looked into theboard’s contributions to the localeconomy during its first fiveyears, 2006-11. The IDA hired the USF Florida Institute of Governmentand a Texas consulting com pany, Impact DataSource, toconduct the performance reportof the economic impact theboard created. The study showed IDA proj ects created 133 direct jobs andan additional 48 indirect and in duced jobs during the period. Those employees were paid approximately $37.9 million inearnings over the six years,which averages just under$35,000 per job annually, ac cording to the report. Total employment numbers in Hardee County increased by 392workers during the same periodfrom 2006 through 2011 whichmeans firms directly supportedby the IDA (133 jobs) accountedfor 34 percent of the county’semployment increase. If the indirect jobs are in cluded (181 jobs) then the IDAwould be responsible for creat ing 46 percent of the jobs addedduring that time period. The report estimated 17.5 percent of new workers move toHardee County. That equates toan additional 32 workers mov ing to the county. A large portion of the direct jobs created came in 2006 whenPacer Marine Engineering andthe Scosta truss companies lo cated in the Commerce Park.

6A The Herald-Advocate, March 6, 2014 Fort Green NewsBy Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! Happy birthday wishes are ex tended to Geral Marie Al-lison, who turned 88 on Feb. 19. That is a great age and I wish her many more. We visited Rita Allison last week and she told me about the birthday and advised she is feeling better. Before I forget, I really want to thank the vendors who stayed to the bitter end for the pig sale at the Hardee County Fair. The kids cannot help where they are placed in the line-up for the sale. Some of the old businesses who have been in our county for over three generations leave after bidding on or buying one pig! One person told us that he had instructions to buy one steer and no pigs, and this is a large old company. Hardee County does support their youth, better than adjoining counties. And thank goodness for the newcom ers! I stopped at the Mulberry Dol lar Tree the other day to get some Yardley English Lavender soap and, just making conversation with the clerk, said the Wauchula store no longer car ried it. The clerks name was Grace and she lived down here for some years and takes the paper. She likes to keep up with the activities of the people from Fort Green! Small world. Our revival was wonderful with Brother Ron Coram. Pauline Walker is in the Lake land hospital, Gloria Du-pree is still in the hospital, as is Billy Porter, and Norma Ale-jandro was sick Sunday morning and could not attend church. Last week it was reported at church Brother Jack White was in the hospital but it is possible he is better. Betty Walker is still not able to attend church. Please pray for these and others you may know about. Sherman is minus one kidney stone. The doctor was able to get it last Thursday, but he had to remain in the hospital overnight. Our youth and some adults worked at Lake Denton recently and are going to work at Resthaven this Saturday, leaving the church at 7 a.m. Sandy Hash told me they needed bath towels and her church took up a collec tion and she was able to buy, I believe the number was, 50 bath towels and 70 wash cloths plus, with the extra money, detergent, etc. Someone is getting more stars in their crowns! Our youth went to March Madness in Hudson March 1. Besides hearing good messages on the Bible the youth partici pated in different activities. The Smith boys, Dustin, Tyler and Austin, brought home a trophy, the first ever in basketball! All the youth had a good time. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to Scott Reid and family on the death of his father, who lived in Michigan. Due to the cold, they will have services later. Also, sympathy is ex tended to the family of Velma Smith, affectionately known as Ma Smith to so many. She worked at Hardee Memorial when I did back in the s. Our sincere sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Byron Newberry from Fort Meade. I read with interest the report by my granddaughter in the paper a couple of weeks ago. I never got to work in the tobacco fields, as fieldwork was limited to men or boys. I always helped at the barn, even though I would have preferred the field, as the boys got to drive the mule! Before I graduated from school a tractor had been in vented that two people could sit on and crop the leaves, place them in a tray and they were strung and ready to hang in the barn. This sure put lots of people out of work! Mama never worked in the fields, as the lady of the house cooked a big dinner for the workers. Also, the only thing we could depend on eating every night was biscuits, except when we had greens and then we had biscuits and cornbread. Times sure have changed! We never had sandwiches for any meal ex cept once in a while we got to take our lunch when in grammar school. It was always real food, dinner and supper. The annual OTaters will be immediately following the morning services on March 16 and is a fundraiser for the youth. The suggested donation is $6. Dont forget to set your clock one hour ahead this coming Saturday night. I wish Uncle Sam would leave the time alone! Please pray for our nation and each other. WALKABOUT In wondering around the woods, the lemon grove has always been kind of an advocation for me. Most of the land around me was once owned by my family; my grandmother, my uncles and aunts and presently members of my generation and some of the next. It is really a pretty piece of land that slides between the Charlie Marsh and runs almost to where Top Barlow lives. It once consisted of 10,000 acres but was divided into several acreages long ago. I walk in the woods because it is a way to strengthen my balance. Walking on the road is exercise, but walking on irregular sur faces builds up my agility which, as you know if you have walked on this earth as long as I have, tends to slip away. In my walkabouts, there have been a couple of things that hap pened that make interesting stories. A few years ago Marvin and Judy Johnsons daughter, Kali, had a wedding party that started about 4 on a Saturday afternoon. Since Marvin and Judys house is approximately a mile from my house I decided to walk, intending to stay only a little while. Well, the party got into full swing and I got to enjoying it, so the next thing I knew it was 10 p.m. and time for me to go home. I thought about asking someone to drive me, but then decided to walk. I started off going through Prescott Brothers groves. It was just light enough that I could barely see a deer tail flag and I imme diately ran into a bunch of deer. As I continued walking I realized that I was going to get to a spot where I had to crawl over a barbedwire fence. I knew that I probably could not do that in the dark, so I got back on Kelly Roberts Road. As I approached my place, which has a pasture in front sur rounded by a woven wire fence, something dark ran in front of me and disappeared going from east to west. This meant that when this dark creature came to the fence it could not go under it so evidently it went over it. The first thing I thought about was a hog, but that did not make sense because if you were that close to a hog and he was running from you, hed be making some racket. So that didnt compute as there was no noise at all and I was left bewildered. The next morning I ran into Kenny Sanders and he told me that he was shining a light in the grove the night before looking for deer and ran into a big old panther. He said that the panther didnt even run off, he just kind of looked at him. I suspect that the dark thing that ran in front of me last night was a panther since only a panther or something like it could go over that woven-wire fence without creating any noise. I finally came to the conclusion that I had had my first panther encounter and, folks, I really dont care to have an other. I have talked about it with friends over the years and havent thought much about it, but last week I was walking in what would have been Aunt Weeda Roberts pasture down along the creek, which is now owned by two cousins, one of which has a cattle lease and the other a hunting lease. Out of respect for their rights, I dont carry a gun; just me and my dogs walk. I was walking on the north side of Buckhorn Creek between the barbed-wire fence and the pas ture with my dogs running in front of me when suddenly the dogs ran right past me with six coyotes chasing them. I suspect they were focusing on my 15-pound Italian greyhound for a meal, but since she can run 35 miles an hour they had not caught up to her. I dont know where my cur dog/pit bull cross was Over The FenceBy Dr. Ross A. Hendry because I did not see her, I just saw the Italian greyhound come back by. I have to describe these coyotes to you because they were six almost identical, really pretty dogs in good shape. Most of the coy otes Ive seen in the woods are scrawny looking and dont look healthy or like they eat regularly, but these dogs were fat and they were almost identical in size and color. They were black with just a few brown or golden hairs flecked in their coats. If I had wanted to pick out something for a pet, what I saw would have been a beau tiful dog to haul around in my car or have in my yard. I knew that they were going to get my dog and I didnt have a gun, so I started to holler just as loud as I could and ran to the barbed-wire fence. If you want to get across a barbed-wire fence in a hurry, you have to go over the top or underneath, so I tried to crawl through it and I got hung up. In the meantime, I was screaming at the top of my voice at those coyotes. Once they realized there was a man there, they all went different directions. I remember watching one of them run for maybe a half-mile away from me and up toward what was once called the Canaly Grove. I think Ned Hancock owns it now, but it was a 40-acre or ange grove that was located in the middle of grandmothers land that the family had never bought. I dont know what happened to the rest of those coyotes as they all split in different directions. I got hung up on the fence in the excitement of it all, but I had to get to my dogs. I cut my arms and tore my clothes, but finally did tear myself out of that barbed-wire fence. By then the coyotes were gone and my dogs were alright. I was none of the worse for wear; I had rips in my shirt, a hole in my blue jeans and more holes in me than I could count. Since I am on anticoagulants, I think I bled for about three days; but it was an interesting, though painful, adventure. One point I make about this particular place on Aunt Weedas ranch is that in years past when I walked on it, even in the daytime, I would see a doe here and there with maybe either a fawn or a year ling. Even though there were oak trees all around, I would see them lying out in the open. They might run off when I went by, but they were always there. This year I havent seen a deer at all, except for a herd of about 15 head inside Kelly Durrances grove, which he bought from Aunt Weeda. They were all really large fat deer. It makes me think that perhaps there is an increase in coyotes and the reason we are having a lot of sightings on the place now is that it may have affected the deer population. I just dont see the deer I used to see. I have read that coyotes kill one-third of the fawns that are born every year. I thought I would share with you some information I have gleaned over the years. I read an article about three years ago in National Rifle Magazine, Hunting Edition that Western coyotes went into Canada and crossed with wolves and then came back down the East Coast of the United States. Those of you who have been here a while know that there werent very many until recently. The concern in this article was that these wolf-cross coyotes that came down the East Coast of the United States as the eastern coyote might pack. If so, they would be dangerous to everything: children, dogs, all little animals and even to man. I thought as I read this article that I might have seen a pack. The truth of the matter is that I really believe that this was prob ably a litter of coyotes that had been fed really well. I dont under stand why they were so fat unless they were also nursing a female. I cant imagine them still nursing when they were in the 40to 45pound category, but they certainly were well-fed and fat. I believe we have a serious coyote problem and need to start hunting them in earnest. Since there is no season on coyotes, we can hunt them year-round. If you dont know how, ask Kevin Saun ders; he has already mastered the sport.Boys Win Track MeetBy JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocatehe Hardee Wildcat track and field team garnered the most points in a five-team meet last week.

All rights reserved Good Housekeeping HUNTING CABINS This week, I am sharing this column space once again with Alyssa Henderson, fire prevention lieutenant and public information officer. Heres her view of a hunting cabin. For Thanksgiving this past year I was able to tag along on a hunting trip my boyfriend takes annually sometime in November. I was warned that the cabin is 200 years old, survived the Civil War, and doesnt have central heat or air. Oh it also has a nice ghost that lives there so sometimes weird things happen. Most people couldnt believe I was going there, especially since I am not anyones idea of a hunter. I am the type who stops on the side of a road to save a turtle. However, I really loved the idea of going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. It was simple: no phones, no TV, just peace and quiet and, of course, running hot water. That would have been a deal breaker for me. No running water = no go! So, I packed my Oprah magazine, plenty of books and my yoga mat. All things I could do with my quiet time while the boys were hunting. We arrived late at night and got the fire going before we bundled up and went to bed. The next morning I was able to get my first real look at this cabin I had heard about for years. And, of course, say hi to Mr. Ghost to hopefully stay on his good side. It was rustic, simple and a little quirky from some additions. Hands-down my favorite part was the front porch. It was where you go to relax. I was going to spend plenty of time on this porch. As I found my way around the cabin, I noticed more things. For example, extension cords were everywhere, no smoke detectors, and to turn the light off in the main room you had to unscrew the light bulb! Oh, and we had this somewhat dangerous, but wildly effective, LP tank with a Mr. Heater attached. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Heaters Tank Top Attachment, its a device that attaches on a LP tank and you light it. Even though I was on vacation, I could feel the little inspector hairs start to stand on end. So, how could I make this reasonably safe without spending a fortune or ruining my vacation? Its actually easier than you think. First, remove the extension cords when they are not in use. Ide ally, use surge protectors, however in Georgia I didnt have that op tion. Never leave any type of space heater unattended and always make sure you have a three-foot clearance around the space heater with nothing in that clearance area. Unfortunately, there wasnt much I could do about the main light except be very careful. But if this situation exists in your home, please consult an electrician. Last and most important, always install smoke alarms! More fire-related deaths occur because houses didnt have smoke alarms to give people the warning to get out. When you have done the best you can, go out to the front porch, read a book and relax! The FiresideBy James StillwagonHardee County Fire-Rescue Chief In Other ActionThe Hardee County School Board approved all of the follow ing items in a single vote, with out discussion, during its five-minute meeting last Thurs day.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate In a place like Hardee County, being a part of the agri cultural community is fairlycommon. In the case of 2014 Cattlemen’s Sweetheart EmilyHughes, this is more than true. Her family runs a ranch, mak ing her a fifth-generation Floridacattle rancher. She and severalgenerations of her family havegrown up in Hardee County. Emily, 17, says she likes being a part of the agriculturalcommunity because she lovesthe morals and values it encom passes. She also said it waspretty obvious she would be apart of this world since she hasbeen around it and involved in ither whole life. One thing Emily loves to do is working cattle with her dad,Darin, and grandparents. How ever, she has also developed aninterest in business thanks to hermom, Misty. Emily says hermother grew up in the city andhad nothing to do with cattle andearned a business degree. It is because of this that Emily is planning to go to col lege and major in agriculture orbusiness and find a way to makethe two go together. Becoming Hardee County Cattlemen’s Sweetheart is some thing she thought would be “socool.” Emily says she has always looked up to all the previousSweethearts and what they have done for the community. Sheknew she wanted to apply forthe chance at the title when she was old enough. Her wish came true, as she was notified on Feb. 11 that she had become the Sweetheart. Now that she has the crown, Emily wants to be an ambassa dor and represent HardeeCounty well. She hopes to beable to teach others about theimportance of the cattle industry. Emily’s first official appear ance came at the Hardee CountyFair. She was very busythroughout the entire week thefair was in town as she attendedall events. Emily says her fa vorite part was all of theyounger kids who would comeup to her wanting to see “a realprincess”; she loved seeing theirexpressions. She particularly remembers a young girl with cerebral palsyand Down syndrome who hadalways wanted to meet a real-life princess. Emily says the girlbecame very excited and startedto squeal when she introducedherself. And it seems the kids weren’t the only ones happy to seeEmily there. Her father, who isa Fair Board member, receivedseveral comments about how in volved Emily was at the eventsand how happy they were to seeher interacting with others. Emily will continue to be a part of the agricultural world,even after she graduates fromHardee Senior High. She is cur rently a senior and will graduatewith only two semesters left atSouth Florida State College.After graduating SFSC, Emilyplans to transfer to the Univer-sity of Florida and major in agri culture or business.

Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg PREMIER OF RANCH RODEO SHOOTOUT Last year was the beginning of the two-weekend ranch rodeo shootout, sponsored by the Seminole Tribe of Florida a nd the Okee chobee County Cattlemen’s Association. The 22 teams entered competed the first weekend (Aug 2223) at the Fred Smith Arena in Brighton then came back on LaborDay weekend to do it all over again, this time at Okeechobee (whichsaw their return to the old Cattlemen’s Arena, so rich in rodeo his tory), with the top 10 teams then battling it out for the money onLabor Day Monday. And this ranch rodeo had a big payout, with the top teams win ning $10,000 for first place, $7,500 for second, $5,000 for third, and$2,500 for fourth place. Additionally, the winner of each event oneach weekend and Monday received a bonus of $500. So it will come as no surprise that Hardee County has an asso ciation with eight of the 22 teams, and four of those teams woundup in the top ten and came back on Monday to compete for a thirdtime. The Haymans 7-11 Ranch team is the family ranch of our very own Doc Slade Hayman, and A-Bar-L Cattle is owned by AltonLangford (though none of the team members were from our area). There were five events, and they started out with the bronc rid ing. This column will cover the Brighton weekend. Next up the rop ing and branding event, followed by the double muggin’, teamsorting, and wild-cow decorating. (In this last event, they have torope a wild cow, hold her still while someone ties a pretty pink rib bon onto her tail, then remove the rope from her head.) The JTF Performance Horses team was made up of Tamme (Miller) Fussell, hubby Jimmy and nephew Robert, Luke Cantu, andPeck Harris. Robert was the bronc rider for this team, and receiveda low score of 57, due to a lazy bronc. In the roping and brandingevent, they were only one of two teams to get the event completedon Friday night, with a time of 1:6.0 (but six extra calves crossedthe line before their designated calf, so they received a penalty ofan extra 30 seconds). They had trouble with their roping that night, and were unable to rope the steer in the double-muggin’ event, and caught the cow with an illegal head catch in the wild-cow decorating event. The sorting was just as disastrous for them, where they received a no-time with the wrong calf crossing the line. Stevens Land & Cattle was the usual lineup of Billy Adams, Marshall Godsey, Cody Storey and Christi Pryor, but Charles RobertStevens III was out of town, so he was replaced by Carson Storey.Marshall’s bronc ride resulted in a score of 66, and they receivedthe second-lowest time in the wild-cow decorating event, in at 33.1seconds. They received no-times in the other events with the wrong bovine crossing the line. Donald “Bear” Murphy competed on the Arrow G Ranch team, while wife Roxanne was up against him on the Fulford Cattle team.Bear’s team qualified in only two of the events — bronc riding andthe wild-cow decorating, with a time of 41.9 seconds (plus a five-second penalty for an extra cow crossing over the line). Roxanne’steam was one of only three teams to receive a time on Saturday nightfor the branding event (57.8 seconds, plus a five-second penalty). Awhole bunch of extra steers crossed the line in the double muggin’,they received a no-time in the team sorting, but co mpleted the wildcow decorating in 43.4 seconds. William Perry showed up on Saturday night in his pret ty cham bray-blue shirt with a bright orange scarf, to represent the M&HCattle team. They received no-times for three events, with a time of1:4.6 in the sorting, and a score in the broncs. The other local team competing on Saturday night was M&N Cattle, with husband and wife Clay and Christy Newsome, BrandonDieter, Matt Smith and Chance Wright. Brandon’s bronc ride (onthe horse called Blondie) was a score of 72 (the winning score forthe weekend was a 78). They received times of 1:1.4 (plus a 10-sec ond penalty for two extra steers crossing the line) in the double-muggin’ event, and the second-lowest time of the evening, 25.2seconds, in the wild-cow decorating event. The branding and sortingsaw them with no-times. Okeechobee’s turn will be the next column. Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Greggin on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! Peck Harris of the JTF Performance Horses team lines upthe calf needed in the branding event, in preparation forroping it. Chance Wright and Brandon Dieter of the M&N Cattleteam hold the head of the wild cow, Clay Newsome holdsits tail, and Christy Newsome ties its tail with the pink rib bon. Matt Smith is out of the picture, having roped thecow, and is not allowed to dismount. They received a timeof 25.2 seconds in this event — a mere 1.1 seconds be hind the winning time for the weekend.

HARDEE CATTLEWOMEN The Saving Power Of Jesus Christ It is often said — don’t let anyone cause you to doubt or questi on the hope you have in Jesus Christ unto eternal life. It’s tru e we should never doubt the promise of Jesus to save us by His free gift of ever lasting life. But we should be careful to consider whether we are in the right relationship with Him whereby we will be saved. Out of all the people of Noah’s day when the flood waters were upon the earth, only eight people were saved. When Jesus walked the Earth two thousand years ago, nearly all of the spiritual leaders wereteaching for doctrine the commandments of man. The calmaity of all calamities is for anyone to be tricked into believ ing that they are perfectly safe in a lost condition. In Isai ah 8:20, the test is revealed that will safeguard anyone from being lost. Bec ause of the fact that the saving power of Jesus leads to righteousness or right living in harmony with His character, this test quickly shows what spirit is behind most of what’s being presented these days. The f ocus is on the earthly that’s passing away rather than on the preparation neces sary to live forever in the heavenly. The day is coming when many will say to Jesus that they have done many good things in His name but find themselves forever los t be cause they continued “living unsaved.” They never t ook hold of the sanctifying power that would transform them to love righteousnessrather than sin. (Matthew 7:21-23). Because it is s in that’s the problem, we must know that in 1st John 3:4, sin is defined as lawles sness, or as one version states it to be, the transgression of the law. It is also shown in Romans 7:7 that it is the Ten Commandment law that warn s us of sin in our life and not the ceremonial law of sacrifices an d ordi nances that expired by limitation at the cross of Calvary. Now it must be understood that keeping any or all of the Ten C om mandments cannot save anyone. It’s only Jesus that can save. Butwillfully continuing to not keep any one of them will ultimately end in total condemnation. In the time remaining there will surely b e a grand appearance of godliness in the world, but without the saving power — of Jesus Christ.

4B The Herald-Advocate, March 6, 2014 DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I hope you can help me with aproblem that might get mekicked off the first string. I getcramps in my legs, mostly inthe calves. At first, it waslaughable. Now it's not. Atpractices, I can sit down andwait for the cramp to go. Dur ing a game, I have to be re placed. How do I stop them? —B.L. ANSWER: I have to tell read ers that what I say applies to ex ercise-associated muscle crampsand not to the cramps that somany older people get when inbed. They're both the same phe nomenon, an involuntary, sus tained and painful contraction ofa muscle or muscles. But they'renot the same when it comes tothe situation that brings them on. The actual cause is a matter that experts have debated foryears. A lack of potassium, cal cium or magnesium, excessiveexercise, cold weather, hotweather and dehydration havebeen cited as possible causes.None has been proven to be theuniversal cause. Muscle fatigueis another possibility. Some ex perts say that muscle fatigue af fects the muscles' response tospinal cord signals that preventcramping. Suggestions to forestall cramps are many. Hydration is areasonable approach. An hour before a game or an exercise ses sion, drink a quart of water. Thatgives enough time for the waterto be absorbed. During play,keep drinking. If you are drink ing a lot of fluid, switch to asports drink to prevent a drop inpotassium and sodium. Stretchyour calf muscles inthree daily sessions.Rising on the toes isa good calf stretch.You can try taking avitamin supplementthat contains most ofthe B vitamins.Make sure vitaminB-6 is included. To uncramp a muscle, sit on thefloor with the involved legstretched out in front of you.Grab the ball of the foot, and,while keeping the heel on thefloor, pull the foot toward youand hold it in that position untilthe cramp eases. Pinching the skin between the nose and the lip is another way tobreak a cramp. The booklet on aerobics, fit ness and abdominal exercises of fers tips for both beginners andfitness pros.

Please allow four weeksfor delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a Pap smear every year. Idon't have a cervix. My cancerdoctor (I had breast cancer)said a Pap smear isn't neces sary for women withouta cervix. I still have myovaries and tubes andthe rest of the plumbing.Do I need a yearly Papsmear? —K.R. ANSWER: If a woman has had her uterus andcervix removed, she does not need to have Pap smears un less the uterus and cervix wereremoved because of cancer. Sucha woman shouldn't cut off all ex aminations with her doctor. Shecould have other pelvic problemsthat require periodic examina tions. However, the Pap smearpart of the examination can bestopped.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.

Lady Cats Nip Manta Rays There is nothing more comical than a coward trying to act like a brave man. ——— Unfortunately my cousin Elmo, when he was in his 20s, just could not seem to get himself a date anywhere. So wi th this problem he drove all the way up to Dayton, Ohio, to get himself a date. Be cause he misunderstood, he thought that Dayton was a state-spon sored dating service. ——— Should a man be so very blessed as to have a good and decent wife who is always loyal to his cause and never frets when the darkclouds of his life seem to shadow his very soul, and if this lady whonever strays far from the altar of God will not do, then neither willa thousand. ——— Every boy thinks his mama’s biscuits are the brownest ... and they probably are. ——— This is for those of you who always enjoyed the solo singer George Beverly Shea who sang in the Billy Graham Crusades. Herecently turned 98 years old and is still singing. ——— The wife of F.D.R., Franklin Delano Roosevelt, once said, “It would be better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.”Eleanor Roosevelt, 1940s. ——— What is the difference between a fake smile compared to a real smile? The difference is that the fake smile displays more teeth. ——— How I ask you can you tell a rich witch from a poor witch? Be cause the rich witch cruises around town on a brand new luxurybroom, while the poor witch rides by on an old wet mop. ——— Unfortunately in today’s world good men and women have be come an endangered species. ——— My income was so bad last year that I had to borrow money from my accountant before he would fill out my income taxes. NowI owe him and the government. I can’t pay either one of them, andnow my accountant is threatening to take me to court for his money. ——— Some families come as a family, some come as a tribe, while yet others come as a mob. ——— If you want to know what makes somebody tick, then just light their fuse and you will soon find out.Truman A.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Lady Wildcat softball tightened up when it needed to. The girls started the season 3-0, lost a 7-6 heartbreaker to Palmetto anddropped a game at Lake Wales before going to Lemon Bay on Fri day night for a 1-0 shutout victory in the first district game of theseason. This week’s games will include the two other district oppo nents, DeSoto and Sebring. ——— Meanwhile, Wildcat baseball, which had won all five pre-season games against opponents such as the Ridge Bolts. Lakeland Dread naughts, LaBelle Cowboys and Avon Park Red Devils, ran into sometough tangles last week. After beating Lake Wales, Hardee lost toLemon Bay and Berkeley Prep. There are a dozen seniors and a halfdozen pitchers (including underclassmen) to spot the Wildcats. The junior varsity Wildcats beat Lemon Bay handily on Friday night but continues to have many cancellations and rescheduledgames to contend with, making it difficult to get actual game expe rience for these young men. ——— Keyon Brown and Joshua Almaraz lead Hardee weightlifting. The senior duo is working hard to qualify for the regional and statemeets. ——— Girls tennis is a 5-2-1 after a tie with Lake Wales when rainout cancelled the deciding match. The team is a good mix of seniors tofreshmen and levels of experience. Results from boys events have,so far, been unavailable. ——— Hardee tracksters are doing well. The boys won a five-team meet at Sebring last week. The girls meet was exceptionally competitive,with just three points between first and third place among the fivegirls teams. Hardee placed third, just three points out of winning themeet. Both runners and field event specialists are contributing points for the Wildcats and Lady Cats. Coaches Rod Beatty, Rod Smithand assistants are doing a good job with the huge teams they havethis season. ——— Junior high volleyball starts today (Thursday). Coaches Becky Carlton, Stephanie Mier and Amy MontsDeOca have a good groupof eighth and seventh graders for the two teams. The girls play at5:30 p.m. with seventh graders, followed by the eighth grade clashabout 6:30, 10 minutes after the younger girls end their game. ——— And, it’s time for youth sports. Miss Florida Softball competition is the goal, which begins with a full slate of games from 8 a.m. to5:30 p.m. all days Saturday at the Farrr and Heine fields off SouthFlorida Avenue. Youth baseball is also starting, although we haven’t gotten sched ules or rosters as yet. The boys play on the fields west and south ofthe Armory off Doyle Carlton Road west of Wauchula. ——— In community sports interests, Men’s Community Softball will be starting soon. They had a planning meeting on Feb. 24 to set upthe teams and schedules. In boxing, pro boxer Tori Ramirez will try for his third victory on March 21st in the A La Carte Pavillion in Tampa in a four-roundbout. He is 2-0 with one KO in his bantamweight division. In wrestling, there’s an April 5 matchup at the Hardee County Agri-Civic Center at Stenstrom and Altman roads west of Wauchula,featuring local fighter Eddie White.

P P a a t t r r i i c c k k ' s s D D a a y y F F e e a a s s t t St. Patrick's Day celebrates all things Irish, including the colorgreen. Why not enjoy the holidayby going green and healthierwith your traditional St. Patrick'sDay feast? Corned beef and cabbage is a favorite meal on St. Patrick'sDay, but some folks may want tocut back on the fat and calories.Brisket is naturally high in fat,but there are ways to reduce it.One way is to trim away any ex cess fat from the meat before it iscooked. Another is to cook themeat a day ahead of time and re frigerate it. Once the meat cools,the fat will harden and can beskimmed off. The type of brisket you buy also makes a difference. A flathalf brisket would have 191 calo ries and 6 grams of fat per 3.5ounce serving. The same amountof point half brisket has 244calories and nearly 14 grams offat. Whole brisket has 218 calo ries and 10 grams of fat. Leavinga 1/4-inch trim of fat almost dou bles the calories in all of thebrisket cuts. One of the lowest-calorie briskets is the one inwhich all the fat is trimmed. Potatoes are another favorite Irish food. Potatoes are not veryhigh in calories and have no fat,but making them with lots of but ter and high-fat milk adds fat.Keep the holiday tradition alive KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis but reduce the calories by serv ing a side of Low-Fat ButtermilkMashed Potatoes.

ROGERS CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT By: Edwina Murphy Deputy Clerk 2:13-3:6c ____________________________________ DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Please tell your readers to re member to keep their birdfeeders full in cold weather.Use high-energy food or suet, ifpossible. When the ground andplants are covered with heavysnow, it's very difficult forbirds to find enough to fill theirstomachs. I have two feedersthat I'm filling twice a day, andI keep suet out at all times.During warmer weather I onlyneed to fill them twice per week. "My" birds are veryhappy and full! —D. Oswald, Palmyra, N.Y. DEAR D.: You told them! Even though we're turning a cor ner into spring, in much of thecountry — especially after thisdifficult winter — snow willcover the ground well intoMarch and even beyond. Birds that do not migrate but "winter over" have to put up withthe snow and ice just as we hu mans do. But food is likely hardto find, particularly in this tran sition period when wintertimesources of food have been de pleted. Keeping a backyardfeeder filled with birdseed ishelpful, while suet — basically,beef fat — gives birds extra en ergy and nutrients. Place suet about 5 feet off the ground and close to a tree trunk.Special feeders are available, butmany homeowners just place iton an upright skewer, or even rubit onto the tree trunk. Raw suetcan be set out throughout the winter and colder spring months,but experts advise against puttingit out in warm weather. Suet notonly turns rancid in the heat, butalso melts, creating a risk ofcoating a bird's feathers andmaking flight difficult. Warm-weather brands of suet are avail able, however. On a side note, avoid putting out bacon drippings for birds: thepreservatives used in commer cially prepared bacon can be badfor their long-term health.

VICTORIA L. ROGERS CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT Hardee COUNTY, FLORIDA By: Connie Coker Deputy Clerk 3:6,13c _______________________________ Q: Is it true that Brooke Burke-Charvet won't be backas co-host of "Dancing with theStars"? I hope not, because Ireally like her! —Fiona D., via email A: Hot on the heels of the sudden ouster of music directorHarold Wheeler and his 28-per son orchestra,the folks at"DWTS" havecreated an other shakeupin the firing ofBrooke, who'sto be replacedby season 11'sthird-place finisher, Fox sportsreporter Erin Andrews. Begin ning this fall, Erin will joinperennial host Tom Bergeron forseason 18 of the hit dancing-competition show. As for the show's musical ac companiment, word is that theshow will use sound recordingsand a small electric band to at tract a younger audience. To me,this is a huge mistake: Part of the show's appeal was its elegant,big-band ballroom feel thatHarold and his orchestra pro vided. To replace that with asmall electric band? No, thankyou. Q: Do you have any news on the reincarnation of NBC's"Heroes"? —Daniel G., Birmingham, Ala. A: NBC has confirmed that it will air a 13-episode "miniseriesevent" called "Heroes Reborn,"to air in 2015. It is being billedas a stand-alone series, but noword yet on which, if any, char acters from the original serieswill be resurrected. According tothe show's website: "NBC willlaunch a digital series prior to the2015 premiere that will introducethe characters and new story lines. This leveraging of socialmedia is a way for fans to re-en gage with what was one [of] thetrue pioneers in multiplatformstorytelling." Q: What are Michael J. Fox's plans now that his sitcomhas been canceled? —Kathy I., via email A: Michael will return later this season to "The Good Wife"as Louis Canning for a multi-episode, season-ending story arc.As for "The Michael J. FoxShow," a representative at NBCsays that the network will air theremaining episodes at somepoint this season. Also pulledfrom NBC's Thursday nightlineup, freshman comedy "SeanSaves the World," starring "Willand Grace" favorite Sean Hayes. Q: One of my favorite shows is TNT's "Cold Justice." Canyou tell me if there will be athird season? —A Reader, via email A: Unless something incredi bly crazy happens between nowand renewal time, "Cold Justice"is a shoo-in for a season-threepickup. TNT recently announcedthat season two, which is cur rently airing, has been extendedby six episodes to air this sum mer. "Cold Justice," which airs on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followsformer prosecutor Kelly Sieglerand former crime-scene investi gator Yolanda McClary as theydig into murder cases that havegone unsolved for years.

By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate Continuum Labs has informed the Industrial Development Authority it will seek an additional $2 million in county economic development funds if the company can secure $5 million in private money. If a pproved, it would bring the local boards investment in the startup technology company to $9.25 million since 2011. Continuum CEO Travis Bond told the IDA board of his intentions Wednesday at a specially called meeting. Bond s aid he feels the com pany is making significant mo mentum, and stated he is close to securing $5 million in funding from a venture capital firm. He said he expects that deal to be fi nalized in days. He wants the IDA to con t ribute $1 million by October 2014 and an additional $1 mil lion in May 2015, provided he has the required private capital in hand and additional jobs in place. Bond said the company cur rently has about 11 employ e es, and that he would guarantee a total of 36 jobs by September 2014 and an additional four by May 2015 if the board approved his request. He said 80 percent of the jobs would be full-time. Board member Dottie Conerly said she felt Bonds monthly update to the board was the most encouraging report he has deliv ered so far. Bond said the addition of private capital should give the IDA board additional confidence in the project. A venture capital firm does more due diligence than you can even get your head around, Bond said. We created a business model that is highly dependent on this town. Bond felt his company could be gin paying its own expenses by October 2014 and begin pay ing rent to the IDA for using the Tech River facility by July 2015. Bond expects significant growth in 2014. He said talks with firms about providing a second round of capital, in the $10 million range, later in the year are progressing well. He said currently CareSync has 5,000 customers but proj ects having 50,000 to 100,000 by the end of the year. He ex pects to sign deals with both a specialty hospital and specialty insurance plans this year. Bond said the company has added 1,700 users since January See $2 MILLION 2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Over 200, about two percent of those who use Wauchula utilities, could be paying $135 to $175 more on their monthly bills. If the second, and final, reading of an ordinance at Monday nights meeting is approved, those people who consistently fail to pay their bills, get cutoff and reconnected will find that it is nearly four times as expensive to do so. The Wauchula City Commission struggled with late-paying customers, deposits and security light charges during its work shop on Monday evening. The results will be included in the proposed ordinance first read in November and finalized for this Mondays meeting, which will be at 6 p.m. in Commission Chambers in Historic City Hall, 225 E. Main St., Wauchula. The commission also dis cussed impact fees, which will come up for finalization at a future meeting. Utility Bills City Manager Terry Atchley explained the situation. According to the meter reader routes, each utility user receives a bill at about the same time each month. If its the 12th this month, it will be the 12th next month and so on. When a bill is mailed, it is due upon receipt, even as phone, cable, credit card and other bills. Each has a due date on it and be comes late and subject to late fees, interest charges and whatever if not paid on time. In Wauchula, the due date for a utility bill is about three weeks after it is sent.

In all, 40 criminal counts were levied, ranging from failing to provide support to a child to possessing marijuana to selling meth near a church. Sheriffs Maj. Randy Dey said the day-long roundup was the culmination of months of detective work and part of Sheriff Arnold Laniers semi-annual corralling of suspects in drug cases. Those cases, he explained, are developed throughout the year using tips, word heard on the street and surveillance information. Many are finalized with the use of confidential informants, he noted. And, because of that, arrest warrants are held until roundup time, as Drug Task Force members are careful not to burn their informants. Sheriff Lanier wants a roundup done at least a couple times a year to let everyone know we will not tolerate drug activity, Dey said. Users and traders may come t o feel they have not been de tected, but still an arrest may fol low at any time. Were out there, Dey warned. If you are using drugs, we are going to come after you. There are people who think this is a victimless crime, the major went on to say. This is not a victimless crime. Drug users and sellers ignore their families, neglect their children and steal to fund their habit. Fridays roundup put 15 extra officers out on the street, finding and serving the collection of arrest warrants. While armed with the drug-related warrants, offi cers also found a couple sus pects wanted in other cases. In all, 15 were arrested here or elsewhere. Booked into the Hardee County Jail were: Amy Disharoon, 46, of 403 Bell St., Wauchula; possession of methamphetamine, posses sion of narcotics equipment, obstruction of police executing a warrant; $2,000 bond; bonded.

Kellys Column B y Jim The Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday donated $2,000 to the H ardee High School Academic Team, which has 20 members and is coached by Rachel Thompson. The team is hoping to win a state title in April in Orlando. The team was second in 2013 and third in 2012. Charles Cannon, 87, of Wauchula this week at Bowl of Fun Lanes in Wauchula bowled games of 85 and 173. He carries a 139 average. For over 50 years he bowled in the Wednesday Night League. About two years ago Cannon had a knee replacement. The current national debt is $17.4 trillion. The annual budget deficit has been dropping the past three or four years. The stock mar ket has done well the past few years. Ideally it would be good for the U.S. to have a budget surplus and begin paying down the national debt. National and international economics is a complex subject, with many variables. Fortunately the U.S. can expand the money supply but printing too much new money has dangers, including inflation and a lower value of the dol lar. The three new parking lots in downtown Wauchula are land scaped and look very nice. The city appears poised for some quality growth over the next decade. About 40 people participated in a poker tournament Saturday night at Torrey Oaks Golf Club as a fundraiser for the Hardee Athletic Foundation. The foundation holds a poker tourney twice a year. The rewards for the top three finishers are $500, $300 and $200. The Four Way Test of the things we think, say or do, according to Rotary Internationals motto, is ... First, is it the truth?

Hart Cabin, built in 1879, is now located at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. The original cabin was built in the Lemon Grove area on Maude Road by William Henry Hart (1840-1921) and his wife Mary Jane (1843-1909). They came to this area in a covered wagon drawn by horses and mules. The young couple with three small children came from Thomasville, Ga., and were one of six families to move from Georgia to Florida at the same times. Hart had fought in the War Between The States and was captured in Mississippi during the war and held as a prisoner. He carried a wallet made from a bobcat hide and given to him by his sister. The couple took advantage of the Homestead Act signed by President Chester Arthur and settled on 160 acres. By building a home and improving the property for five years they could keep the land. They raised cattle and oranges and had a large garden. What was left of the cabin was donated by Wilma Smith and her husband Wendell Smith, 89, who is Harts great-grandson. Smith has been giving tours of the cabin at Pioneer Park Days for 30 years. The original home site was 11 miles northeast of Pioneer Park. The Harts had four daughters and three sons. The heirs still maintain the Hart Family Cemetery, founded in 1885. Smith was a lineman for 30 years for Florida Power Corporation. The photos show the cabin and Wilma and Wendell Smith. HARDEE HISTORY Gas prices finished February w ith the largest increase since July. The national average rose 21 days in a row, reaching 17 cents per gallon (five percent) over the course of the month. It was the longest consecutive streak since February 2013. The nations gas prices aver aged $3.34 a gallon in February, the cheapest monthly average since 2011. In prior years, Februarys gas prices averaged $3.65 in 2013, $3.55 in 2012 and $3.17 in 2011. AAA forecasts the price of gas will continue to rise well into March and April, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. Despite the projected rise in pump prices, its expected that prices will remain less expensive than last years peak of $3.79 per gal lon, he added. Gas prices typically rise this time of year because many re fineries cut production to con duct seasonal maintenance, which can limit gasoline sup plies and cause market uncer t ainty. The majority of Gulf Coast refineries, the primary source of fuel in southeastern states, should conclude mainte nance in midto late March, assuming no major repairs keep refineries offline for an extended period of time. Crude oil is another contribut ing factor to the price at the pump. The price of oil repre sents about two-thirds of the cost of gasoline, and producers generally pass along increased oil costs to consumers in the form of higher gas prices. The price of domestic West Texas Intermediate crude oil increased about $5 per barrel this month. The price for a barrel of oil settled Friday on the NYMEX at $102.59 39 cents more than last week. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.46, five cents more than last week. Florida's average of $3.45 is the same as last week.

Citizen Bob Cole told the boa rd it should not base a decision to give Continuum Labs an additional $2 million on the fact that the IDA was already so deeply invested in the project. In October 2013, the board agreed to give the company $990,000 and conduct an audit of the expenses to date, and expected it to take 120 days to complete. The scope of the audit was not determined at the time of that vote. Now the IDA is planning on conducting an agreed upon pro cedures review, which will look at a random sampling of 25 percent up to 100 percent of the companys transactions, depend ing on the cost and time frame to complete. Mike Carter with Clifton-Lar sonAllen, who is conducting the review for the IDA, will bring the different options back to the board to vote on. At a September 2013 IDA meeting, Bond said he expected to add 49,085 users in 2014 and generate $16 million in revenues during the year. He also projected 200 CareSync record specialist jobs would be created in 2014, with a payroll of $9 million. and he has a commitment to add a nother 4,000 users in April. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said he wanted the board to approve drawing up a contract to bring back for review and approval at the next IDA meeting on March 13. I want to know if this board will commit $2 million contingent upon job numbers and the additional $5 million in private capital, he said. Donald Samuels said he wanted an audit completed on the company before the board considered additional funding. Jim See made the funding motion and Monica Reas was the second. It passed 6-2. Samuels and Horst Witschonke voted against the motion while Gene Davis, See, Reas, Mike Prescott, Conerly and John ONeal voted in favor of prepar ing the contract to bring back for review and approval. Board members Diana Youmans, Doug Jensen and Lory Durrance did not attend the meeting. Citizen Frank Kirkland said numerous medical apps are on the market and did not know how competitive CareSync would be. paid on time, a phone call (in S panish or English) is made to the number given on the payees account. Three days later, a disconnect notice is hand delivered to the residence. If it is not paid, utilities are immediately discon nected. Old method: In the past, it has cost $15 for a late fee, $15 for a disconnect and $15 for recon nection, a total of $45, which has apparently not been a problem for those few residents who choose to ignore payment due dates and notices until they dont have utilities. New method: Now the cost of a late notice will be $30. It will be $45 for a disconnect notice to be hand delivered. When utilities are discon nected, a person who comes to the city administrative offices at 126 S. Seventh Ave., Wauchula, to be reconnected will have to pay the overdue bill and all fees, including a $60 reconnect fee if they come in before 4 p.m. If it is between 4 and 5 p.m., the reconnect fee is $100 because the linemen workday is 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. and they have to be paid overtime to work past 4 p.m. Should a person not come in before 5 p.m. when utilities have been disconnected, there are no evening reconnect services, it will have to wait until the fol lowing day, when the 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. reconnect fee is $60 and ups to $100 if they come in between 4 and 5 p.m. Atchley explained the need to meet the extra expenses caused by consistently late bill payers, most of which are able to pay their bills on time and just choose not to. For someone in a true one-time emergency, such as being called out of town for a funeral or other tragedy, if some one in the family notifies the city offices, staff will work with them to handle it, he said. Deposits Historically, utility deposits have been determined by look ing at the past usage at that address, averaging the highest six months bills and doubling that. If it is a new house, it is based on what average bills for that size house run. The new method will be using a third-party provider, Utility Exchange, to do a basic or soft credit check and issue a rating for the prospective customer, who pays a non-refundable $25 fee for this service. The service will issue a rating of green, yellow or red. If a persons rating is very good--green, there will be no de posit fee. If it is yellow, neither bad nor good, the deposit fee will be one times the 12-month average of past utility bills at that address. If, however, a person has a red or bad credit rating, the deposit will be two times the 12-month average. If bills are paid consistently on time for two years or more, the deposit can be reimbursed. Security Lights The cost for yard or security lights will increase by $5. For 100-watt, the monthly charge is $13.50, 250-watt is $18, 350-watt is $23 and 1,000watt is $40. Where there is an existing pole, installation of yard-light fixtures is $75. When it is nec essary to install a pole and the yard-light fixtures, the cost is $250. Impact fees When there is already a water/sewer line going past a residence, whose owner wants to change from a well to city services, the impact fee will be much less than the average $3,000 for a new residence where a line has to be estab lished for service to be provided. How much these changes are will be decided at a later meet ing. Its just part of our efforts to help residents and be fair and consistent with them, con cluded Atchley.

PHOTO BY JIM KELLY O n Thursday, Feb. 27, grapefruit were being unloaded at Chapman Fruit Company in Wauchula from small trucks into large trailers before going to a juice plant. The early and mid-season orange harvest was over, and the valencia orange harvest season was soon to begin. The Florida grapefruit crop is about 18 to 19 million boxes compared to about 115 million boxes of oranges. Citrus is a major part of Hardee Countys economy, along with cattle, phosphate mining, electrical power generation, and vegetable farming. UNLOADING GRAPEFRUIT USF Study Analyzes IDAs Performance $42,000. T he IDA did not fund any projects from 2007 to 2009 due to a lack of available dollars for economic development because of changes in how the phosphate severance taxes were dispersed. This was before the Mosaic agreement came to fruition. In 2010 the IDA gave $5.45 million to three companies. Forestwood Design LLC, Keyplex and Rapid Systems received a combined $5.450 mil lion in incentives and produced 31 direct jobs. That equaled a cost of $175,806 per job created. Much of the $2 million given to Rapid Systems was used for infrastructure to build the wireless broadband network across Hardee County. Forestwood Design went out of business. The IDA purchased its building in the Commerce Park and later sold it to Nutra Pure/Seychelles Organics, which received $460,000 in in centives during 2011 and cre ated 19 direct jobs, for a cost of just more than $24,000 per job. On average, the 133 direct jobs created cost the IDA $70,751 in incentives. Businesses supported by the IDA added $6.9 million in property to the tax roll that has re sulted in nearly $493,365 in additional tax dollars, with Hardee County receiving $251,949 during the period and the Hardee County School Board collecting $216,019. Revenues received by the IDA over the six years totaled $6,327,849, with the majority of the budget coming from the 10year, $42 million Mosaic Agree ment. The agreement began in 2010 and contributed $1.5 mil lion in 2010 and $3.5 million in 2011. Other revenues were $793,231 from land sales in the Com merce Park, $238,785 in rental income and $295,834 in fruit sales from the grove on the property the board purchased to expand the Commerce Park. The IDA also received grants from the Economic Devel-op ment Authority totaling $5,627,370. Some of the EDA money was used to erect spec buildings and the rest was combined with IDA funds for joint projects. Impact DataSource said in the report it does not suggest the IDA caused all the investments and growth presented in the report but felt it was important to the local economy. Impact DataSource believes that such a one-stop center for economic development services is critical to a communitys economic growth and many of these investments may not have oc curred without the efforts of the IDA, the report states. The direct economic activity generated by these firms ripple through the local economy spurring spin-off impacts, it states. The cumulative impact on economic impact created by the new businesses, which measures purchases by the businesses and purchases made by the workers, totaled $161 million in 2011 and has continued to increase. The report does not include projects that began after 2011. Projects started after 2011 include Continuum Labs and Tech River, EZ Products, Hardee Lakes improvements, PF Manu facturing, sewer/water corridor improvements, the Sheriffs Office outpost, $1 million ear marked for Bio-nitrogen, Florikan moving its operation here, and the $1.6 million incubator/business ac-celerator proj ect. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Industrial Development Authority got the results of a study by the University of South Florida, which looked into the boards contributions to the local economy during its first five years, 2006-11. The IDA hired the USF Florida Institute of Government and a Texas consulting com pany, Impact DataSource, to conduct the performance report of the economic impact the board created. The study showed IDA projects created 133 direct jobs and an additional 48 indirect and induced jobs during the period. Those employees were paid approximately $37.9 million in earnings over the six years, which averages just under $35,000 per job annually, ac cording to the report. Total employment numbers in Hardee County increased by 392 workers during the same period from 2006 through 2011 which means firms directly supported by the IDA (133 jobs) accounted for 34 percent of the countys employment increase. If the indirect jobs are in cluded (181 jobs) then the IDA would be responsible for creat ing 46 percent of the jobs added during that time period. The report estimated 17.5 percent of new workers move to Hardee County. That equates to an additional 32 workers mov ing to the county. A large portion of the direct jobs created came in 2006 when Pacer Marine Engineering and the Scosta truss companies lo cated in the Commerce Park. The two companies received combined incentives of $3.5 million and created 83 jobs for a cost per job of just more than Building Pe rmits The following permits were appl ied for or issued by the Hardee County Building De-partment during the week of Feb. 23-28.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The previously unbeaten Hardee Wildcat nine hit the proverbial patch of ice in action last week. Three games in three days was a lot for the Cats against tough opposition. Unfortunately, that also included a district loss to Lemon Bay. The Cats will regroup for another pair of games this week and two more next week. On Tuesday, they welcomed another district rival, DeSoto and today (Thursday), it is Frost-proof that visits. Hardee returns the favor with a trip to Frost-proof on March 13 and hosts the third district rival, Sebring on March 14. The Cats will play a pair of games on Spring Break week, at Lake Placid on March 17 and at Mulberry on March 18. Hardee 9, Lake Wales 5 Hardee clashed with the Lake Wales Highlanders at home last Thursday and was the 9-5 win ner. Senior Kris Johnson was on the mound for the Wildcats. Leaving a Highlander on base in the top of the first, Hardee went to work in the home half of the inning. Hayden Lindsey lined a shot and Kramer Royal followed with another. Royal was out on a Johnson fielders choice, which turned into an error allowing Lindsey to score. Luke Palmer singled to left center and Cody Spencer smacked a two-RBI hit. With an error, he was in place to trot home on a Che vy Dolcater hit. Jake Bolin singled and Tanor Durden walked. When the dust settled, six Wildcat runners had crossed home plate. Lake Wales would not go down easily and responded by plating five runners in the top of the second on a combinations of a homer, singles and errors. It was 6-5. The Highlanders were not able to get any other runners home, leaving three stranded over the next five innings as Johnson and Seth McGee com bined for the Wildcat win. Meanwhile, Hardee put three more runs on the board. In the home half of the fourth. Lindsey doubled, and Royal and Johnson hit back-to-back singles. A double play erased Johnson but the first two batters came home before the third out occurred. Hardee added an insurance tally in the top of the sixth. McGee was safe on an error and Spencer and Dolcater also were the recipients of errors which al lowed McGee to score the final run of the game in the 9-5 vic tory. Lemon Bay 10, Hardee 2 Spencer took the loss at Lemon Bay on Friday night. The Manta Rays put a five-spot on the board in the bottom of the first, added solo scores in the third and fourth and a three-spot in the fifth en route to the win. Hardee got an opening tally when Royal drew a walk and worked himself into position to c ome home on a Johnson RBI single. The Cats picked up another score in a seventh-inning rally. Wyatt Maddox and Armando Alamia both walked. With two down, Royal singled to score Maddox. He and Alamia were left on base when the game ended. Berkeley Prep 6, Hardee 4 A Saturday afternoon visit from Berkeley Prep was another challenge for Hardee. Both teams were three up, three down in the first inning. The Buccaneers drew first blood with a pair of scores in the top of the second on consecutive hits coupled with a wild pitch and overthrow to lead 2-0. Berkeley added three more runs in the third and a final score in the fourth inning for a 6-0 advantage. Hardee got going in the home half of the fifth. Spencer dou bled to left and Dulcater was hit by a pitch. Bolin slapped a twoRBI double to deep left center. Lindsey picked up an RBI single before the inning ended with Hardee trailing 6-3. The Cats were only able to add one more run. In the top of sixth, Tyler Hewett singled to center and went to third on a Palmer hit to right field. Spencer knocked a RBI scingled to right center, but he and Palmer were left on board as the rally fell short in the 6-4 loss. Wildcats Hit Rough Spot It is that time of year again.

The Hardee girls tennis team had three matches last week. Two were wins and one was a tie. The onslaught continues as Hardee has another trio of games this week. They were at DeSoto on Monday, and hosted Avon Park Tuesday. The match today (Thursday) is at home against always tough Sebring. The season wraps up with a match at Lake Placid on Mar. 13 and the season finale at home on March 14. District competition is not until after Spring Break, starting March 31. The girls will play at Sebring and the boys will be at Avon Park. Hardee girls started last week at Lakeland Tenoroc where they won 4-3 in a series of pro-set matches. Hardee won the number three, four and five singles and number two doubles for the narrow victory. Top players also play top opponents.

In the doubles competiion, Oceguera/Selena Macias lost 83 to Logue/Esham. Hardee pulled it out with the number two doubles 8-1 win for Durrance/Burnett over Shumate Jani. Tenorocs number one is very strong. We started out slow but three and four came back and won to even it up and it ended well, commented Coach Dennis Aubry. The next event was Feb. 25 at Webber International Universi ty courts against Frostproof. Hardee again played tough to win 4-3. At number one, Oceguera bat tled Alissa Riedel in a 6-3, 6-2 loss.

At number four, Clark took Shelby Cornelius 6-4, 6-3 and at number five, it was Pohl win ning 6-2, 6-3 over Lauren Pooley. The pro-set doubles competition was split, Oceguera/Macias warred with Riedel/Aldrich in a 9-8 (10-5) loss, while Durrance/Burnett won 8-5 over White/Cornelius. It was a great doubles match by Susana and Selena but Frostproof came back and won The depth of our Hardee team keeps helping us win matches. It was a very close match although scores may not show this. Hardee lost 7-0 to Frostproof last year. So much improve ment! noted Aubry. It was a similar outing last Thursday at Lake Wales. Hardee lost the first two singles and won the next three. The girls lost the number one doubles and the rain came before the number two doubles could get under way. At number one, Ocegura faced Jessie Hignight in a 6-0, 61 loss. Durrance lost in a tiebreaker to Manilla Carrillo and Burnett won in a tie-breaker over Isabel Wadsworth. Clark won 6-3, 6-0 over Katt Dudamel and Pohl shut out Tamara Brandon 6-0, 6-0. Oceguera/Macias loss the number one doubles 8-0 before the rain came. Lake Wales had a strong number one. Hardee took awhile to warm up Caroline was not feeling well and played hard. She had to go home before the num ber 2 doubles. It ended as a tie due to rain. It was a good competitive match, concluded Aubry. Boys scores continue to be unavailable. Players are Jake Neuhoffer, Zack Neuhoffer, Waytt Montgomery, Roby Paris, Colton Albritton, Jordan Jones, Francisco Salgado, Cha Lor, Richard Yang, Boone Paris and Conner Crawford.

Before I forget, I really want to thank the vendors who stayed to the bitter end for the pig sale at the Hardee County Fair. The kids cannot help where they are placed in the line-up for the sale. Some of the old businesses who have been in our county for over three generations leave after bidding on or buying one pig! One person told us that he had instructions to buy one steer and no pigs, and this is a large old company. Hardee County does support their youth, better than adjoining counties. And thank goodness for the newcom ers! I stopped at the Mulberry Dol lar Tree the other day to get some Yardley English Lavender soap and, just making conversation with the clerk, said the Wauchula store no longer car ried it. The clerks name was Grace and she lived down here for some years and takes the paper. She likes to keep up with the activities of the people from Fort Green! Small world. Our revival was wonderful with Brother Ron Coram. Pauline Walker is in the Lake land hospital, Gloria Du-pree is still in the hospital, as is Billy Porter, and Norma Ale-jandro was sick Sunday morning and could not attend church. Last week it was reported at church Brother Jack White was in the hospital but it is possible he is better. Betty Walker is still not able to attend church. Please pray for these and others you may know about. Sherman is minus one kidney stone. The doctor was able to get it last Thursday, but he had to remain in the hospital overnight. Our youth and some adults worked at Lake Denton recently and are going to work at Resthaven this Saturday, leaving the church at 7 a.m. Sandy Hash told me they needed bath towels and her church took up a collec tion and she was able to buy, I believe the number was, 50 bath towels and 70 wash cloths plus, with the extra money, detergent, etc. Someone is getting more stars in their crowns! Our youth went to March Madness in Hudson March 1. Besides hearing good messages on the Bible the youth partici pated in different activities. The Smith boys, Dustin, Tyler and Austin, brought home a trophy, the first ever in basketball! All the youth had a good time. Our sincere sympathy is extended to Scott Reid and family on the death of his father, who lived in Michigan. Due to the cold, they will have services later. Also, sympathy is ex tended to the family of Velma Smith, affectionately known as Ma Smith to so many. She worked at Hardee Memorial when I did back in the s. Our sincere sympathy is also ex tended to the family of Byron Newberry from Fort Meade. I read with interest the report by my granddaughter in the paper a couple of weeks ago. I never got to work in the tobacco fields, as fieldwork was limited to men or boys. I always helped at the barn, even though I would have preferred the field, as the boys got to drive the mule! Before I graduated from school a tractor had been in vented that two people could sit on and crop the leaves, place them in a tray and they were strung and ready to hang in the barn. This sure put lots of people out of work! Mama never worked in the fields, as the lady of the house cooked a big dinner for the workers. Also, the only thing we could depend on eating every night was biscuits, except when we had greens and then we had biscuits and cornbread. Times sure have changed! We never had sandwiches for any meal ex cept once in a while we got to take our lunch when in grammar school. It was always real food, dinner and supper. The annual OTaters will be immediately following the morning services on March 16 and is a fundraiser for the youth. The suggested donation is $6. Dont forget to set your clock one hour ahead this coming Saturday night. I wish Uncle Sam would leave the time alone! Please pray for our nation and each other. WALKABOUT In wondering around the woods, the lemon grove has always been kind of an advocation for me. Most of the land around me was once owned by my family; my grandmother, my uncles and aunts and presently members of my generation and some of the next. It is really a pretty piece of land that slides between the Charlie Marsh and runs almost to where Top Barlow lives. It once consisted of 10,000 acres but was divided into several acreages long ago. I walk in the woods because it is a way to strengthen my balance. Walking on the road is exercise, but walking on irregular sur faces builds up my agility which, as you know if you have walked on this earth as long as I have, tends to slip away. In my walkabouts, there have been a couple of things that hap pened that make interesting stories. A few years ago Marvin and Judy Johnsons daughter, Kali, had a wedding party that started about 4 on a Saturday afternoon. Since Marvin and Judys house is approximately a mile from my house I decided to walk, intending to stay only a little while. Well, the party got into full swing and I got to enjoying it, so the next thing I knew it was 10 p.m. and time for me to go home. I thought about asking someone to drive me, but then decided to walk. I started off going through Prescott Brothers groves. It was just light enough that I could barely see a deer tail flag and I imme diately ran into a bunch of deer. As I continued walking I realized that I was going to get to a spot where I had to crawl over a barbedwire fence. I knew that I probably could not do that in the dark, so I got back on Kelly Roberts Road. As I approached my place, which has a pasture in front sur rounded by a woven wire fence, something dark ran in front of me and disappeared going from east to west. This meant that when this dark creature came to the fence it could not go under it so evidently it went over it. The first thing I thought about was a hog, but that did not make sense because if you were that close to a hog and he was running from you, hed be making some racket. So that didnt compute as there was no noise at all and I was left bewildered. The next morning I ran into Kenny Sanders and he told me that he was shining a light in the grove the night before looking for deer and ran into a big old panther. He said that the panther didnt even run off, he just kind of looked at him. I suspect that the dark thing that ran in front of me last night was a panther since only a panther or something like it could go over that woven-wire fence without creating any noise. I finally came to the conclusion that I had had my first panther encounter and, folks, I really dont care to have an other. I have talked about it with friends over the years and havent thought much about it, but last week I was walking in what would have been Aunt Weeda Roberts pasture down along the creek, which is now owned by two cousins, one of which has a cattle lease and the other a hunting lease. Out of respect for their rights, I dont carry a gun; just me and my dogs walk. I was walking on the north side of Buckhorn Creek between the barbed-wire fence and the pas ture with my dogs running in front of me when suddenly the dogs ran right past me with six coyotes chasing them. I suspect they were focusing on my 15-pound Italian greyhound for a meal, but since she can run 35 miles an hour they had not caught up to her. I dont know where my cur dog/pit bull cross was Over The FenceBy Dr. Ross A. Hendry because I did not see her, I just saw the Italian greyhound come back by. I have to describe these coyotes to you because they were six almost identical, really pretty dogs in good shape. Most of the coy otes Ive seen in the woods are scrawny looking and dont look healthy or like they eat regularly, but these dogs were fat and they were almost identical in size and color. They were black with just a few brown or golden hairs flecked in their coats. If I had wanted to pick out something for a pet, what I saw would have been a beau tiful dog to haul around in my car or have in my yard. I knew that they were going to get my dog and I didnt have a gun, so I started to holler just as loud as I could and ran to the barbed-wire fence. If you want to get across a barbed-wire fence in a hurry, you have to go over the top or underneath, so I tried to crawl through it and I got hung up. In the meantime, I was screaming at the top of my voice at those coyotes. Once they realized there was a man there, they all went different directions. I remember watching one of them run for maybe a half-mile away from me and up toward what was once called the Canaly Grove. I think Ned Hancock owns it now, but it was a 40-acre or ange grove that was located in the middle of grandmothers land that the family had never bought. I dont know what happened to the rest of those coyotes as they all split in different directions. I got hung up on the fence in the excitement of it all, but I had to get to my dogs. I cut my arms and tore my clothes, but finally did tear myself out of that barbed-wire fence. By then the coyotes were gone and my dogs were alright. I was none of the worse for wear; I had rips in my shirt, a hole in my blue jeans and more holes in me than I could count. Since I am on anticoagulants, I think I bled for about three days; but it was an interesting, though painful, adventure. One point I make about this particular place on Aunt Weedas ranch is that in years past when I walked on it, even in the daytime, I would see a doe here and there with maybe either a fawn or a year ling. Even though there were oak trees all around, I would see them lying out in the open. They might run off when I went by, but they were always there. This year I havent seen a deer at all, except for a herd of about 15 head inside Kelly Durrances grove, which he bought from Aunt Weeda. They were all really large fat deer. It makes me think that perhaps there is an increase in coyotes and the reason we are having a lot of sightings on the place now is that it may have affected the deer population. I just dont see the deer I used to see. I have read that coyotes kill one-third of the fawns that are born every year. I thought I would share with you some information I have gleaned over the years. I read an article about three years ago in National Rifle Magazine, Hunting Edition that Western coyotes went into Canada and crossed with wolves and then came back down the East Coast of the United States. Those of you who have been here a while know that there werent very many until recently. The concern in this article was that these wolf-cross coyotes that came down the East Coast of the United States as the eastern coyote might pack. If so, they would be dangerous to everything: children, dogs, all little animals and even to man. I thought as I read this article that I might have seen a pack. The truth of the matter is that I really believe that this was prob ably a litter of coyotes that had been fed really well. I dont under stand why they were so fat unless they were also nursing a female. I cant imagine them still nursing when they were in the 40to 45pound category, but they certainly were well-fed and fat. I believe we have a serious coyote problem and need to start hunting them in earnest. Since there is no season on coyotes, we can hunt them year-round. If you dont know how, ask Kevin Saun ders; he has already mastered the sport.Boys Win Track MeetBy JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocatehe Hardee Wildcat track and field team garnered the most points in a five-team meet last week.

All rights reserved Good Housekeeping HUNTING CABINS This week, I am sharing this column space once again with Alyssa Henderson, fire prevention lieutenant and public information officer. Heres her view of a hunting cabin. For Thanksgiving this past year I was able to tag along on a hunting trip my boyfriend takes annually sometime in November. I was warned that the cabin is 200 years old, survived the Civil War, and doesnt have central heat or air. Oh it also has a nice ghost that lives there so sometimes weird things happen. Most people couldnt believe I was going there, especially since I am not anyones idea of a hunter. I am the type who stops on the side of a road to save a turtle. However, I really loved the idea of going to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. It was simple: no phones, no TV, just peace and quiet and, of course, running hot water. That would have been a deal breaker for me. No running water = no go! So, I packed my Oprah magazine, plenty of books and my yoga mat. All things I could do with my quiet time while the boys were hunting. We arrived late at night and got the fire going before we bundled up and went to bed. The next morning I was able to get my first real look at this cabin I had heard about for years. And, of course, say hi to Mr. Ghost to hopefully stay on his good side. It was rustic, simple and a little quirky from some additions. Hands-down my favorite part was the front porch. It was where you go to relax. I was going to spend plenty of time on this porch. As I found my way around the cabin, I noticed more things. For example, extension cords were everywhere, no smoke detectors, and to turn the light off in the main room you had to unscrew the light bulb! Oh, and we had this somewhat dangerous, but wildly effective, LP tank with a Mr. Heater attached. For those of you not familiar with Mr. Heaters Tank Top Attachment, its a device that attaches on a LP tank and you light it. Even though I was on vacation, I could feel the little inspector hairs start to stand on end. So, how could I make this reasonably safe without spending a fortune or ruining my vacation? Its actually easier than you think. First, remove the extension cords when they are not in use. Ide ally, use surge protectors, however in Georgia I didnt have that option. Never leave any type of space heater unattended and always make sure you have a three-foot clearance around the space heater with nothing in that clearance area. Unfortunately, there wasnt much I could do about the main light except be very careful. But if this situation exists in your home, please consult an electrician. Last and most important, always install smoke alarms! More fire-related deaths occur because houses didnt have smoke alarms to give people the warning to get out. When you have done the best you can, go out to the front porch, read a book and relax! The FiresideBy James StillwagonHardee County Fire-Rescue Chief In Other ActionThe Hardee County School Board approved all of the follow ing items in a single vote, with out discussion, during its five-minute meeting last Thurs day.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate In a place like Hardee County, being a part of the agricultural community is fairly common. In the case of 2014 Cattlemens Sweetheart Emily Hughes, this is more than true. Her family runs a ranch, mak ing her a fifth-generation Florida cattle rancher. She and several generations of her family have grown up in Hardee County. Emily, 17, says she likes being a part of the agricultural community because she loves the morals and values it encompasses. She also said it was pretty obvious she would be a part of this world since she has been around it and involved in it her whole life. One thing Emily loves to do is working cattle with her dad, Darin, and grandparents. How ever, she has also developed an interest in business thanks to her mom, Misty. Emily says her mother grew up in the city and had nothing to do with cattle and earned a business degree. It is because of this that Emily is planning to go to col lege and major in agriculture or business and find a way to make the two go together. Becoming Hardee County Cattlemens Sweetheart is some thing she thought would be so cool. Emily says she has always looked up to all the previous Sweethearts and what they have done for the community. She kne w she wanted to apply for the chance at the title when she was old enough. H er wish came true, as she was notified on Feb. 11 that she had become the Sweetheart. N ow that she has the crown, Emily wants to be an ambassa dor and represent Hardee County well. She hopes to be able to teach others about the importance of the cattle industry. Emilys first official appear ance came at the Hardee County Fair. She was very busy throughout the entire week the fair was in town as she attended all events. Emily says her fa vorite part was all of the younger kids who would come up to her wanting to see a real princess; she loved seeing their expressions. She particularly remembers a young girl with cerebral palsy and Down syndrome who had always wanted to meet a reallife princess. Emily says the girl became very excited and started to squeal when she introduced herself. And it seems the kids werent the only ones happy to see Emily there. Her father, who is a Fair Board member, received several comments about how in volved Emily was at the events and how happy they were to see her interacting with others. Emily will continue to be a part of the agricultural world, even after she graduates from Hardee Senior High. She is currently a senior and will graduate with only two semesters left at South Florida State College. After graduating SFSC, Emily plans to transfer to the University of Florida and major in agri culture or business.

Hughes New Cattlemens Sweetheart By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The dozen teams in Miss Hardee 2014 get their season under way with a long Opening Day event on Saturday. Games will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a pair of 8-and-under division clashes. On Field 1, First National Bank will challenge Cobb Construction, while on Field 2, Sun Fresh Farms will take on State Farm Insurance. The three teams in the 10-andunder division will split their games. At 10:30 a.m. on Field 11, the Red Hots will battle Ag Comp Solutions. At 1:30 p.m., also on Field 1, the Red Hots will contend with Ullrich Pump. At 3:30 p.m., Ullrich Pump will go head to head against Ag Comp. The remaining games involve the five teams in the 14-andunder division. It starts with an 11:30 a.m. game on Field 2 between Lonestar Construction and Harvest Aviation. Theres a 1:30 p.m. game on Field 2 between Tufneck Trailers and Lonestar. At 3:30, also on Field 2, Pioneer Restaurant will do battle with George Wadsworth Insurance. The final pair of games for the day are at 5:30 p.m. On Field 1, it is Harvest vs. Pio-neer, while on Field 2, it is George Wadsworth vs. Tufneck. W ith time off for Spring Break week, March 17-21, the games continue three or four times a week as needed, with the Mid-season Tournament coming on April 5-6, a break for FCAT testing on April 14-15 and again on April 21-22. The season ends with the Miss Florida Softball State Tourn-ament in Sarasota on May 16-18, with teams from Hardee, hopefully represented. It takes a lot of volunteers to make youth softball possible, in cluding team sponsors and coaches. The coaches in the 8-andunder division are Rene Benavidez for First National Bank, Terra Driskell for State Farm, Earl Gaskins for Sun Fresh and Jill Tyson for L. Cobb Construction Coaches for the 10-and-under teams are Juan Plata for Ag Comp Solutions, Kim Schraeder for Red Hots and Max Ull rich for Ullrich High Flow Pump. The five coaches for the 14and-under teams are Kim Benavidez for Lonestar Construc-tion, Pete DeLuna for Harvest Aviation, Terry Hines for Pioneer Restaurant, Andrew McGuckin for George Wadsworth Insurance and Manuel Herrera for Tufneck Trailers.

COURTESY PHOTOS BY KATHY ANN GREGG T he Stevens Land & Cattle team in the wild-cow decorating event: Billy Adams ties the pink ribbon onto the cow's tail, with Cody Storey, Marshall Godsey and Christi Pryor all holding her steady. Rodeo Bits B y Kathy Ann Gregg PREMIER OF RANCH RODEO SHOOTOUT L ast year was the beginning of the two-weekend ranch rodeo shootout, sponsored by the Seminole Tribe of Florida and the Okee chobee County Cattlemens Association. The 22 teams entered competed the first weekend (Aug. 2223) at the Fred Smith Arena in Brighton then came back on Labor Day weekend to do it all over again, this time at Okeechobee (which saw their return to the old Cattlemens Arena, so rich in rodeo history), with the top 10 teams then battling it out for the money on Labor Day Monday. And this ranch rodeo had a big payout, with the top teams winning $10,000 for first place, $7,500 for second, $5,000 for third, and $2,500 for fourth place. Additionally, the winner of each event on each weekend and Monday received a bonus of $500. So it will come as no surprise that Hardee County has an association with eight of the 22 teams, and four of those teams wound up in the top ten and came back on Monday to compete for a third time. The Haymans 7-11 Ranch team is the family ranch of our very own Doc Slade Hayman, and A-Bar-L Cattle is owned by Alton Langford (though none of the team members were from our area). There were five events, and they started out with the bronc riding. This column will cover the Brighton weekend. Next up the rop ing and branding event, followed by the double muggin, team sorting, and wild-cow decorating. (In this last event, they have to rope a wild cow, hold her still while someone ties a pretty pink ribbon onto her tail, then remove the rope from her head.) The JTF Performance Horses team was made up of Tamme (Miller) Fussell, hubby Jimmy and nephew Robert, Luke Cantu, and Peck Harris. Robert was the bronc rider for this team, and received a low score of 57, due to a lazy bronc. In the roping and branding event, they were only one of two teams to get the event completed on Friday night, with a time of 1:6.0 (but six extra calves crossed the line before their designated calf, so they received a penalty of an extra 30 seconds). They had trouble with their roping that night, and were unable to rope the steer in the double-muggin event, and caught the cow with an illegal head catch in the wild-cow decorating event. The sorting was just as disastrous for them, where they received a notime with the wrong calf crossing the line. Stevens Land & Cattle was the usual lineup of Billy Adams, Marshall Godsey, Cody Storey and Christi Pryor, but Charles Robert Stevens III was out of town, so he was replaced by Carson Storey. Marshalls bronc ride resulted in a score of 66, and they received the second-lowest time in the wild-cow decorating event, in at 33.1 seconds. They received no-times in the other events, with the wrong bovine crossing the line. Donald Bear Murphy competed on the Arrow G Ranch team, while wife Roxanne was up against him on the Fulford Cattle team. Bears team qualified in only two of the events bronc riding and the wild-cow decorating, with a time of 41.9 seconds (plus a fivesecond penalty for an extra cow crossing over the line). Roxannes team was one of only three teams to receive a time on Saturday night for the branding event (57.8 seconds, plus a five-second penalty). A whole bunch of extra steers crossed the line in the double muggin, they received a no-time in the team sorting, but completed the wildcow decorating in 43.4 seconds. William Perry showed up on Saturday night in his pretty cham bray-blue shirt with a bright orange scarf, to represent the M&H Cattle team. They received no-times for three events, with a time of 1:4.6 in the sorting, and a score in the broncs. The other local team competing on Saturday night was M&N Cattle, with husband and wife Clay and Christy Newsome, Brandon Dieter, Matt Smith and Chance Wright. Brandons bronc ride (on the horse called Blondie) was a score of 72 (the winning score for the weekend was a 78). They received times of 1:1.4 (plus a 10-second penalty for two extra steers crossing the line) in the doublemuggin event, and the second-lowest time of the evening, 25.2 seconds, in the wild-cow decorating event. The branding and sorting saw them with no-times. Okeechobees turn will be the next column. 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! Peck Harris of the JTF Performance Horses team lines up t he calf needed in the branding event, in preparation for roping it. Chance Wright and Brandon Dieter of the M&N Cattle t eam hold the head of the wild cow, Clay Newsome holds its tail, and Christy Newsome ties its tail with the pink ribbon. Matt Smith is out of the picture, having roped the cow, and is not allowed to dismount. They received a time of 25.2 seconds in this event a mere 1.1 seconds behind the winning time for the weekend. VOLUNTEERS SOUGHT FOR G UARDIAN AD LITEM PROGRAM The Guardian ad Litem program, which serves abused and neglected children across Hardee County, is seeking volunteers.

8A The Herald-Advocate, March 6, 2014 Metayer goes up for his typical jump shot from the top of t he key. COURTESY PHOTOS Senior Steve Metayer carried a 24-points-per-game average for the Wildcats By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate A Wildcat senior hoopster has achieved what few before him have done. Steve Metayer has been selected to play in the upcoming FACA state all-star game next week. Metayer is one of 24 players throughout the state selected for this honor. He will play for the Florida Athletic Coaches As-sociation South All-Star team at its game in Fort Pierce on March 15. The senior forward was re cently voted the FACA District 17 Player of the Year in voting by the head coaches in Hardee, Highlands, DeSoto and Glades counties. He follows in the footsteps of Mark St. Fort, the only other Wildcat basketball player to gar ner this selection, both under the tenure of 13-year head coach Vance Dickey. St. Fort earned his Player of the Year honor in 2008 when the region included basketball-rich Polk, Highlands, DeSoto and Hardee counties. His solid performance in the AllStar game that year led to a good college career. As they did for St. Fort, the Hardee Athletic Foundation will sponsor Metayer for his trip to All-Stars. The 2014 team cap tain capped his senior season with a 37-point, 23-rebound per formance in the Senior Night game Jan. 30 against Lake Placid. He also had 38-point perform a nces during the season in games against Lemon Bay and Bradenton Southeast. Against Southeast he dropped 22 points in the hole in one quarter. He had several games with at least 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. For the season, Metayer averaged 24 points, nine rebounds, four assists and a pair of steals per game. He was injured in the season finale, the Mosaic Stinger Shootout Jan. 31 in Lake Wales against Lake Wales Vanguard and was unable to play in the district playoff opener against at Sebring on Feb. 4. Despite his busy schedule on the basketball court, Metayer has maintained a 3.9 grade point average and is a member of the National Honor Society. Several colleges are recruiting him and he hopes to pursue a degree in civil engineering while playing his favorite sport. Dickey has coached Metayer all three of his varsity seasons and had these thoughts about the All-Star. Steve has im-proved tremendously as a basketball player and teammate. He is going to be a fine student and wing player for some college. I know it hasnt always been easy for Steve, but I am proud of his ability to stay positive and keep bouncing back. These are the qualities that will make him successful going forward. He is a true Hardee basketball kid.

Shown at the booth are (from left) Angela Ballard, Candice Harris, secretary, Wendy Petteway, president, and past president of the Florida CattleWomen, Aimee Cartwright and Gwen Shaw. HARDEE CATTLEWOMEN The Saving Power Of Jesus Christ I t is often said dont let anyone cause you to doubt or question the hope you have in Jesus Christ unto eternal life. Its true we should never doubt the promise of Jesus to save us by His free gift of everlasting life. But we should be careful to consider whether we are in the ri ght relationship with Him whereby we will be saved. Out of all the people of Noahs day when the flood waters were upon the earth, only eight people were saved. When Jesus walked the Earth two thousand years ago, nearly all of the spiritual leaders were teaching for doctrine the commandments of man. The calmaity of all calamities is for anyone to be tricked into believing that they are perfectly safe in a lost condition. In Isaiah 8:20, the test is revealed that will safeguard anyone from being lost. Because of the fact that the saving power of Jesus leads to righteousness or right living in harmony with His character, this test quickly shows what spirit is behind most of whats being presented these days. The focus is on the earthly thats passing away rather than on the preparation necessary to live forever in the heavenly. The day is coming when many will say to Jesus that they have done many good things in His name but find themselves forever lost be cause they continued living unsaved. They never took hold of the sanctifying power that would transform them to love righteousness rather than sin. (Matthew 7:21-23). Because it is sin thats the problem, we must know that in 1st John 3:4, sin is defined as lawlessness, or as one version states it to be, the transgression of the law. It is also shown in Romans 7:7 that it is the Ten Commandment law that warns us of sin in our life and not the ceremonial law of sacrifices and ordinances that expired by limitation at the cross of Calvary. Now it must be understood that keeping any or all of the Ten Commandments cannot save anyone. Its only Jesus that can save. But willfully continuing to not keep any one of them will ultimately end in t otal condemnation. In the time remaining there will surely be a grand appearance of godliness in the world, but without the saving power of Jesus Christ.

4B The Herald-Advocate, March 6, 2014 D EAR DR. DONOHUE: I hope you can help me with a problem that might get me kicked off the first string. I get cramps in my legs, mostly in the calves. At first, it was laughable. Now it's not. At practices, I can sit down and wait for the cramp to go. During a game, I have to be re placed. How do I stop them? B.L. ANSWER: I have to tell readers that what I say applies to exercise-associated muscle cramps and not to the cramps that so many older people get when in bed. They're both the same phenomenon, an involuntary, sus tained and painful contraction of a muscle or muscles. But they're not the same when it comes to the situation that brings them on. The actual cause is a matter that experts have debated for years. A lack of potassium, cal cium or magnesium, excessive exercise, cold weather, hot weather and dehydration have been cited as possible causes. None has been proven to be the universal cause. Muscle fatigue is another possibility. Some ex perts say that muscle fatigue affects the muscles' response to spinal cord signals that prevent cramping. Suggestions to forestall cramps are many. Hydration is a reasonable approach. An hour before a game or an exercise ses sion, drink a quart of water. That gives enough time for the water to be absorbed. During play, keep drinking. If you are drink ing a lot of fluid, switch to a sports drink to prevent a drop in potassium and sodium. Stretch your calf muscles in three daily sessions. Rising on the toes is a good calf stretch. You can try taking a vitamin supplement that contains most of the B vitamins. Make sure vitamin B-6 is included. To uncramp a muscle, sit on the floor with the involved leg stretched out in front of you. Grab the ball of the foot, and, while keeping the heel on the floor, pull the foot toward you and hold it in that position until the cramp eases. Pinching the skin between the nose and the lip is another way to break a cramp. The booklet on aerobics, fit ness and abdominal exercises of fers tips for both beginners and fitness pros.

Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a Pap smear every year. I don't have a cervix. My cancer doctor (I had breast cancer) said a Pap smear isn't neces sary for women without a cervix. I still have my ovaries and tubes and the rest of the plumbing. Do I need a yearly Pap smear? K.R. ANSWER: If a woman has had her uterus and cervix removed, she does not need to have Pap smears unless the uterus and cervix were removed because of cancer. Such a woman shouldn't cut off all examinations with her doctor. She could have other pelvic problems that require periodic examina tions. However, the Pap smear part of the examination can be stopped. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee Lady Wildcats took the prize on Friday night with a shutout victory. It was the first Class 5A, District 11 game for the Lady Cats and became a 1-0 win for senior hurler Karlee Henderson. Hardee started March with a Monday trip to Frostproof, fol lowed by a Tuesday home game against district rival DeSoto and another Friday against the third district opponent, Sebring. Next weeks only action is varsityonly participation in the Sarasota Invitational Tournament. The girls play again on Friday of Spring Break week, with a March 21 visit to Lakeland. They greet Okeechobee on the 24th, go to Sebring on the 25th and host Lemon Bay on the 28th to close out the month. Hardee has had three hard games in the last two weeks. Palmetto 7, Hardee 6 Backtracking to Feb. 14, the Lady Cats battled Palmetto at home, coming home on the short side of a 7-6 game, with junior Alex Ullrich on the mound. She recorded four strikeouts. The Lady Tigers went three up, three down in the first inning and Hardee left Senida Garcia aboard after she doubled. Palmetto got on the board first, with a triple and error allowing a second-inning score. Hardee answered with four runs in the home half of the second. Han nah Carlton started it with a single. With one down, she went to hit on a Makayla Deuberry double. Kendall Gough drew a walk and Addison Aubry followed it with a single. With an error on a Garcia hit, the last of the four runners came around to cross home and give Hardee a 4-1 advantage. Back-to-back singles left a pair of Lady Tigers on the base paths in the top of the third. Hardee got a pair of insurance scores. Carlton singled to right center and Henderson followed it with a triple, sending Carlton home. A Deuberry sacrifice brought Henderson home. It was 6-1. Palmetto narrowed the score in the fourth inning with a Tiger homer, successive singles and an error to make it a 6-5 game. Gar cia was left on base. In the top of the fifth Palmetto forged in front, plating a pair of runs on a couple of sin gles, followed by a double to go up 7-6. Both teams left runners s tranded in the remaining two innings, and that was how the game ended. Lake Wales 7, Hardee 0 Hardee had a hard time against the visiting Lady Highlanders of Lake Wales in their Feb. 21 game at the Recreation Complex field. Lake Wales pitcher/heavy hitter Susan Hincks almost single-handedly demolished Hardee, with nine strikeouts and a two-run homer. Her teammates handled the field work to keep Hardee run ners off the bases. Hardee 1, Lemon Bay 0 With a few days of practice, the Lady Wildcats got back on track, just in time for a trip to Lemon Bay on Friday night. It was a defensive struggle for both teams, although Hardee left a few more runners on base than Lemon Bay did. In the top of the first, with one down, Carlton singled to right field and stole second. Morgan Walters drew a walk, but a double-play took care of the two outs to end Hardee efforts. Lemon Bay left one aboard. In the second inning, Hen-der son was safe on a single and error but was left stranded and Lemon Bay went down onetwo-three. Neither team scored in the third inning. In the fourth, Hardee was able to pick up the only score of the game. Walters singled and got to third on an error. An error on a Kim Derringer hit brought Walters home, but Derringer was left on third when three consecutive outs left her stranded. It was three up, three down in the next inning. In the home half of the fifth, Lemon Bay left two runners on base. Likewise, Hardee could not get runners home. Walters singled, Derringer hit into a fielders choice to take out Walters. Deuberry walked, but another out left two aboard. The Manta Rays had only three batters. In the top of the sixth, Hardee left Walters and Deuberry on base again and Lemon Bay went down in order. In the final at-bat in the top of the seventh, Hardee attempted to pad its slim lead. With two down, Gough singled and Gar cia beat out a slap bunt, but a Carlton hit caught Gough trying to come home. Lemon Bay left a runner stranded in the home half of the final inning and Hardee had its first district victory of the season. Lady Cats Nip Manta Rays There is nothing more comical than a coward trying to act like a brave man. Unfortunately my cousin Elmo, when he was in his 20s, just could not seem to get himself a date anywhere. So with this problem he drove all the way up to Dayton, Ohio, to get himself a date. Because he misunderstood, he thought that Dayton was a state-sponsored dating service. Should a man be so very blessed as to have a good and decent wife who is always loyal to his cause and never frets when the dark clouds of his life seem to shadow his very soul, and if this lady who never strays far from the altar of God will not do, then neither will a thousand. Every boy thinks his mamas biscuits are the brownest ... and they probably are. This is for those of you who always enjoyed the solo singer George Beverly Shea who sang in the Billy Graham Crusades. He recently turned 98 years old and is still singing. The wife of F.D.R., Franklin Delano Roosevelt, once said, It would be better to light one candle than to curse the darkness. E leanor Roosevelt, 1940s. What is the difference between a fake smile compared to a real smile? The difference is that the fake smile displays more teeth. How I ask you can you tell a rich witch from a poor witch? Because the rich witch cruises around town on a brand new luxury broom, while the poor witch rides by on an old wet mop. Unfortunately in todays world good men and women have become an endangered species. My income was so bad last year that I had to borrow money from my accountant before he would fill out my income taxes. Now I owe him and the government. I cant pay either one of them, and now my accountant is threatening to take me to court for his money. Some families come as a family, some come as a tribe, while yet others come as a mob.

March 6, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Lady Wildcat softball tightened up when it needed to. The girls s tarted the season 3-0, lost a 7-6 heartbreaker to Palmetto and dropped a game at Lake Wales before going to Lemon Bay on Friday night for a 1-0 shutout victory in the first district game of the season. This weeks games will include the two other district opponents, DeSoto and Sebring. Meanwhile, Wildcat baseball, which had won all five pre-season games against opponents such as the Ridge Bolts. Lakeland Dreadnaughts, LaBelle Cowboys and Avon Park Red Devils, ran into some tough tangles last week. After beating Lake Wales, Hardee lost to Lemon Bay and Berkeley Prep. There are a dozen seniors and a half dozen pitchers (including underclassmen) to spot the Wildcats. The junior varsity Wildcats beat Lemon Bay handily on Friday night but continues to have many cancellations and rescheduled games to contend with, making it difficult to get actual game experience for these young men. Keyon Brown and Joshua Almaraz lead Hardee weightlifting. The senior duo is working hard to qualify for the regional and state meets. Girls tennis is a 5-2-1 after a tie with Lake Wales when rainout cancelled the deciding match. The team is a good mix of seniors to freshmen and levels of experience. Results from boys events have, so far, been unavailable. Hardee tracksters are doing well. The boys won a five-team meet at Sebring last week. The girls meet was exceptionally competitive, with just three points between first and third place among the five girls teams. Hardee placed third, just three points out of winning the meet. Both runners and field event specialists are contributing points for the Wildcats and Lady Cats. Coaches Rod Beatty, Rod Smith and assistants are doing a good job with the huge teams they have this season. Junior high volleyball starts today (Thursday). Coaches Becky Carlton, Stephanie Mier and Amy MontsDeOca have a good group of eighth and seventh graders for the two teams. The girls play at 5:30 p.m. with seventh graders, followed by the eighth grade clash about 6:30, 10 minutes after the younger girls end their game. And, its time for youth sports. Miss Florida Softball competition is the goal, which begins with a full slate of games from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. all days Saturday at the Farrr and Heine fields off South Florida Avenue. Youth baseball is also starting, although we havent gotten sched ules or rosters as yet. The boys play on the fields west and south of the Armory off Doyle Carlton Road west of Wauchula. In community sports interests, Mens Community Softball will be starting soon. They had a planning meeting on Feb. 24 to set up the teams and schedules. In boxing, pro boxer Tori Ramirez will try for his third victory on March 21st in the A La Carte Pavillion in Tampa in a four-round bout. He is 2-0 with one KO in his bantamweight division. In wrestling, theres an April 5 matchup at the Hardee County Agri-Civic Center at Stenstrom and Altman roads west of Wauchula, featuring local fighter Eddie White. Keep posted on plans for that evening. Information from school and community athletic events is always welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at sports@theheraldadvocate.com with news for this biweekly column. Please note that the deadline for weekday sports events is 5 p.m. Thursdays. For events which happen after this time, sports news is due by noon Mondays in order to have any chance of getting in that weeks paper, and is always on a space available basis.

TOP Of Th e Charts as of March 3, 2014 By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate In the only game last week, the Hardee junior Wildcats walloped visiting Lemon Bay 12-4. The schedule Saturday game against Berkeley Prep was cancelled. With as many cancella tions as games, the junior Cats have carved back-to-back wins, over Lake Wales and now Lemon Bay, the first district opponent of the season. This weeks games were Tuesday at district rival DeSoto and today (Thursday) at Frosproof. Next week, it is a visit from district opponent Sebring on Monday and another a repeat encounter with Frostproof, this one on the Hardee field. Against Lemon Bay, Hardee spotted the junior Manta Rays a pair of first-inning tallies on a single, fielders choice and home run. Hardee forged ahead to stay with seven big runs in the home half of the first. Adam Salas was hit by a pitch a nd Isaac Flores drew a walk. When Brandon Franks tripled to deep left, the first two runners crossed home plate. Franks trot ted home on the next hit. Wyatt Zeigler started it over with a walk, followed by an Aaron Harrison hit to left field. Moore drew a walk. An error on a Keith Choate hit allowed three runners to come across the plate. Dalton Tubbs walked and Salas hit safely. Tubbs was out trying to steal and Salas came home on the overthrow. Hardee was up 7-2. Wildcat pitcher Harrison limited Lemon Bay to three up, three down in the top of the second and Hardee also went down in order. In the third, Lemon Bay stranded a runner and a double play erased Hardee efforts. In the fourth frame, a pair of strikeouts, a walk and a groundout retired the Manta Rays. Andy Manley singled, stole second, went to third on an error on a Salas hit and came home on the overthrow. It was 8-2. The Lemon Bay junior varsity picked up one run in the fifth on a pair of walks and an error. Another runner came home in the top of the sixth on a hit batsman, fielders choice and back-toback singles. One runner was left stranded in the top of the seventh. Hardee brought Ethan Cord home in the fifth after he walked, advanced on a passed ball and raced home on a Harrison double. In the sixth, Hardee iced the game with another trio of tallies. David Badillo opened it with a walk and Salas and Flo res got free passes as well. An error on Franks hit brought two home and Flores followed on the overthrow. Successive hits left the bases loaded when the final out occurred, but Hardee had an insurmountable 12-4 advantage. Junior Cats Clobber Manta Rays NEWLY LISTED LAND!!!

Krause, DMD FREE CONSULTATIONS Florida Crop Update According to Floridas Automated Weather Network (FAWN), five locations received one inch of rain or slightly more, the rest of the State received less than one inch of rain. Maximum temperatures ranged from the 70s to the 80s, with the highest temperature in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County) and Homestead (Miami-Dade County) at 87 degrees. The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 26 degrees in Defuniak Springs (Walton County) to 58 degrees in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County). Farmers in Walton County were preparing fields for corn. Several sugarcane mills in Palm Beach County were finishing their harvest. Dixie and Gilchrist County farmers were getting fields ready for planting melons. Manatee County farm ers continued to plant tomatoes. Harvesting of cabbage continued in Flagler and Putnam counties and replanting of potatoes continued in these counties. Green beans, tomatoes, squash, eggplant, peppers, sweet corn, Asian vegetables, herbs, and Cuban sweet potatoes (boniatos) were being harvested in Miami-Dade County. Vegetables and fruits marketed in the State included beets, cabbage, collards, eggplant, kale, peppers, potatoes, squash, tomatoes, herbs, and a variety of specialty vegetables. Rain was widespread, but generally light in the citrus area this week. Lecanto (Citrus County) recorded the most precipitation with 1.37 inches. Balm (Hillsborough County) recorded the least with 0.06 inches of rainfall recorded. Daytime temperatures reached the low to mid 80s throughout the citrus growing area last week. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated February 25, 2014, no drought exists within the citrus growing area. Field workers reported small sizes on all varieties. Some growers were noticing various sizes in the same blocks, from slightly larger than golf ball size to larger than baseball size on oranges. Grove activity included harvesting on mostly early oranges and grapefruit, hedging and topping after harvest, care for new trees, and pulling out declining or dead trees. Bloom has been noted in several of the more southern areas of the citrus growing region, signaling the beginning of next years crop. Growers in the In dian River area are experimenting with tenting young trees to eradicate or control the psyllid population that is causing greening. Other methods are being used or tested to keep unaffected trees from getting the Huanglongbing (HLB, Citrus Greening) virus. Six teen of nineteen processing plants had opened this season. Almost all packing houses had opened and were shipping fruit. Pasture quality has been aided by warmer temperatures and soil moisture. Calving continues through out the State. The cattle condition for the State was good but the pasture condition was mostly fair. Cattlemen were feeding hay across the State. All services are free of charge.

P P a a t t r r i i c c k k ' s s D D a a y y F F e e a a s s t t St. Patrick's Day celebrates all t hings Irish, including the color green. Why not enjoy the holiday by going green and healthier with your traditional St. Patrick's Day feast? Corned beef and cabbage is a favorite meal on St. Patrick's Day, but some folks may want to cut back on the fat and calories. Brisket is naturally high in fat, but there are ways to reduce it. One way is to trim away any excess fat from the meat before it is cooked. Another is to cook the meat a day ahead of time and refrigerate it. Once the meat cools, the fat will harden and can be skimmed off. The type of brisket you buy also makes a difference. A flat half brisket would have 191 calo ries and 6 grams of fat per 3.5 ounce serving. The same amount of point half brisket has 244 calories and nearly 14 grams of fat. Whole brisket has 218 calories and 10 grams of fat. Leaving a 1/4-inch trim of fat almost dou bles the calories in all of the brisket cuts. One of the lowestcalorie briskets is the one in which all the fat is trimmed. Potatoes are another favorite Irish food. Potatoes are not very high in calories and have no fat, but making them with lots of but ter and high-fat milk adds fat. Keep the holiday tradition alive Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis but reduce the calories by serv ing a side of Low-Fat Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes. The secret is the buttermilk, which adds a creamy texture and buttery fla vor. Save calories by baking two large potatoes in the oven or microwave, then quartering and peeling them (or leave the skins on if you'd like). Place the potatoes in a deep bowl and add 2 tablespoons of butter and 2/3 cup of 1/2 percentor 1 percent-fat buttermilk. Use a potato masher or mixer to blend the potatoes. Season to taste. Enjoy St. Patrick's Day with this tasty, but reduced-fat meal! CORNED BEEF BRISKET WITH CABBAGE 2 stalks celery, halved 4 carrots 1 medium onion, cut in 4 wedges 1 4-pound corned beef brisket 2 tablespoons steak sauce 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 4 to 6 cups low-sodium beef broth 1 tablespoon corned beef spices or pickling spices (or spices that come with the brisket) 1 medium head cabbage, cut into 6 wedges Grainy mustard for serving 1. Place celery, carrots and onion in the bottom of a large slow-cooker or crock pot. Rinse the corned beef brisket. Season brisket and vegetables with the steak sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper. Place the brisket on top of the vegetables. Pour in the beef broth until it barely covers the brisket. Cover and cook on low for eight to nine hours. 2. Remove the meat and vegetables from the pot and cover with foil to keep warm. Increase heat to high and add the cabbage to the slow cooker. Cook cab bage until softened but still crispy, about 20 to 30 minutes. 3. Remove any excess fat from the brisket. Slice brisket across the grain. Serve with the vegetables and the mustard and a side of the low-fat buttermilk mashed potatoes. Remove any excess fat from the cooking liquid. Pass the extra cooking liquid at the table. Serves 6 to 8. TIP: Powdered buttermilk, which can be found in the baking section of the grocery store, al lows you to use what you need without wasting the rest.

ROGERS CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT By: Edwina Murphy Deputy Clerk 2:13-3:6c ____________________________________ DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Please tell your readers to re member to keep their bird feeders full in cold weather. Use high-energy food or suet, if possible. When the ground and plants are covered with heavy snow, it's very difficult for birds to find enough to fill their stomachs. I have two feeders that I'm filling twice a day, and I keep suet out at all times. During warmer weather I only need to fill them twice per week. "My" birds are very happy and full! D. Oswald, Palmyra, N.Y. DEAR D.: You told them! Even though we're turning a corner into spring, in much of the country especially after this difficult winter snow will cover the ground well into March and even beyond. Birds that do not migrate but "winter over" have to put up with the snow and ice just as we hu mans do. But food is likely hard to find, particularly in this tran sition period when wintertime sources of food have been de pleted. Keeping a backyard feeder filled with birdseed is helpful, while suet basically, beef fat gives birds extra energy and nutrients. Place suet about 5 feet off the ground and close to a tree trunk. Special feeders are available, but many homeowners just place it on an upright skewer, or even rub it onto the tree trunk. Raw suet can be set out throughout the winter and colder spring months, but experts advise against putting it out in warm weather. Suet not only turns rancid in the heat, but also melts, creating a risk of coating a bird's feathers and making flight difficult. Warmweather brands of suet are available, however. On a side note, avoid putting out bacon drippings for birds: the preservatives used in commer cially prepared bacon can be bad for their long-term health. (And ours, too, but that's another story.)

ROGERS CLERK OF THE CIRCUIT COURT Hardee COUNTY, FLORIDA By: Connie Coker Deputy Clerk 3:6,13c _______________________________ Q: Is it true that Brooke Burke-Charvet won't be back as co-host of "Dancing with the Stars"? I hope not, because I really like her! Fiona D., via email A: Hot on the heels of the sudden ouster of music director Harold Wheeler and his 28-per son orchestra, the folks at "DWTS" have created an other shakeup in the firing of Brooke, who's to be replaced by season 11's third-place finisher, Fox sports reporter Erin Andrews. Begin ning this fall, Erin will join perennial host Tom Bergeron for season 18 of the hit dancingcompetition show. As for the show's musical accompaniment, word is that the show will use sound recordings and a small electric band to at tract a younger audience. To me, this is a huge mistake: Part of the show's appeal was its elegant, big-band ballroom feel that Harold and his orchestra provided. To replace that with a small electric band? No, thank you. Q: Do you have any news on the reincarnation of NBC's "Heroes"? Daniel G., Birmingham, Ala. A: NBC has confirmed that it will air a 13-episode "miniseries event" called "Heroes Reborn," to air in 2015. It is being billed as a stand-alone series, but no word yet on which, if any, characters from the original series will be resurrected. According to the show's website: "NBC will launch a digital series prior to the 2015 premiere that will introduce the characters and new story lines. This leveraging of social media is a way for fans to re-engage with what was one [of] the true pioneers in multiplatform storytelling." Q: What are Michael J. Fox's plans now that his sitcom has been canceled? Kathy I., via email A: Michael will return later this season to "The Good Wife" as Louis Canning for a multiepisode, season-ending story arc. As for "The Michael J. Fox Show," a representative at NBC says that the network will air the remaining episodes at some point this season. Also pulled from NBC's Thursday night lineup, freshman comedy "Sean Saves the World," starring "Will and Grace" favorite Sean Hayes. Q: One of my favorite shows is TNT's "Cold Justice." Can you tell me if there will be a third season? A Reader, via email A: Unless something incredibly crazy happens between now and renewal time, "Cold Justice" is a shoo-in for a season-three pickup. TNT recently announced that season two, which is cur rently airing, has been extended by six episodes to air this sum mer. "Cold Justice," which airs on Fridays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, follows former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investi gator Yolanda McClary as they dig into murder cases that have gone unsolved for years. Work ing with local law enforcement, they are helping bring about real results in real time for the police, investigators, district attorneys and families who have worked tirelessly on these cold cases for years.
