The IDA passed a motion in January asking the commissionto review and evaluate all of theIDA members after HorstWitschonke continually brought up matters not on the agenda, offtopic or were which alreadyvoted on and passed at previousmeetings. County attorney Ken Evers said the board could evaluate theoverall actions of the IDA, but it has never evaluated an individ ual member nor does it have cri teria in place to do so. Witschonke’s fate will be determined at a public hearingscheduled for the morning ofApril 3. It was not noted if any or all of the other 11 members will bereviewed. Commissioner Colon Lambert said he does not like to haveto be critical of an individual inpublic, then gave his review ofthe IDA and offered some sug gestions on how to make it runsmoother. He said some questions should be asked prior to themeeting with the director or staffto help move it along faster. Lambert said he appreciates all members willing to serve ina subjective environment. “I amvery concerned about his (Witschonke) desire to fostereconomic growth,” he said. “Iam not ready to hash it out todaybut I think we should in the fu ture.” Commissioner Sue Birge said she attends the IDA meetingsand sees how they struggle tostay in order. “I feel we need torecognize the IDA chairman isasking us for help, and we needto address the situation at hand,”she said.

The alleged violation occurred in the County Commissionchambers in January, when se curity footage showed Don-aldSamuels and Horst Wits-chonkewere part of a small group ofpeople who gathered after acourt hearing regarding an ongo ing public records lawsuitagainst the IDA. Samuels and Witschonke, along with Commissioner GradyJohnson and citizens FrankKirkland and Hank Kuhlman,met with Tampa television newsreporter Mike Deeson, who in terviewed Kuhlman andSamuels in the room. The next day IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert called to report what he believed was aSunshine Law violation to StateAttorney’s Office investigatorStephen Menge. Lambert said he felt since the IDA has “been under constantscrutiny” and “based on its his tory,” he needed to bring this in formation concerning two boardmembers to the attention of thestate attorney, Menge’s reportstates. Menge met with Lambert a few days later and was providedwith security footage of themeeting. It did not include anyaudio. The video was reviewed at the IDA office, and the peoplecaptured on the footage wereidentified by Lambert and IDAemployees Kristi Schierling andSara Pelham. During the video, Kuhlman is seen holding up what appears tobe a map of the planned Com merce Park expansion, which isan ongoing IDA project. “Lambert believes these two See SUNSHINE 2A COURTESY PHOTO These Hardee High School seniors are making local history.

Kellys ColumnBy Jim The city of Bowling Green has recently built a new sidewalk on the south side of East Main Street and an extension of the side walk on the north side of East Main Street. There are several new homes in the area with families. The homes were built by volunteers with Habitat For Humanity. There is a group home for adults near our house. A resident this week introduced himself to me as Walker Texas Ranger, and he had a badge. However, he did not look like Chuck Norris. A decal on the back of a pickup truck in Wauchula this week showed a stick man upset at the Sierra Club and the wording, Florida phosphate feeds my family. This is an old struggle: developing resources for the public good vs. keeping the environment pristine. Modern phosphate minings goal is to help the world grow the food it needs while doing a good job on reclamation. A major challenge of Florida and many other states and nations is maintaining a safe and adequate water supply. A person could have the beginnings of a good diet using namesakes of the following streets in Bowling Green: Coconut, Banana, Lemon, Pineapple, Orange, Grape and Lime. Our family recently planted five young slash pine trees we re ceived for free from Mosaic at the Hardee County Fair. Pines make beautiful trees and provide habitat for birds and pine cone food for squirrels. The fallen pine needles can be used for mulch and as tooth picks. Hardee Superintendent of Schools David Durastanti is proud that Hardee students won 9 of the 19 special awards at the recent five-county Heartland Regional Science and Engineering Fair that recognizes students for their achievements in science. These students were from junior high and high school level. In the junior division Hardee Junior High students earned 5 of the 12 spots to represent the Heartland Region at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair. HJH students earned a first place rib bon in every category, and HHS students earned a first place ribbon in all but three categories, a remarkable achievement. Duristanti gave credit to teachers, support staff, students, par ents, administrators, business partners, churches and civic organi zations. Hillary Clinton, wife of former U.S. President Bill Clinton who was secretary of state in the first term of President Barack Obama and considered a strong potential Democratic candidate for president in the 2016 election, once wrote a book entitled, It Takes A Village To Raise A Child. BIKEContinued From 1A go after coming out of a destruc tive lifestyle. None of the women at Lydias House pay to live there. The goal of Lydias is to get these women in a more stable environment so they will be able to live better and healthier lives. The bike-a-thon is a way to help pay for necessary expenses and continue to be able to help more women in need. But before the race takes place, Lydias House will host an Open House on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. White says there will be refreshments and some true Southern hospitality. Everyone is welcome to at tend and tour the house. For an extra bonus, Dr. Barbara Carl ton, who was married in the house, will be signing copies of her book from 5 to 6 p.m. She will be sharing stories of the home where she celebrated her wedding reception. All of the proceeds gathered from her book-signing will also go directly to Lydias House. By completing the race, riders will not only be helping Lydias House they will also be able to win the grand prize, a two-day and two-night cruise to the Ba hamas.

The dead horse has been buried and they wont let it go, Davis said. When you lease a building, it is not our job to run their business. The motion passed with a 41, vote with Johnson voting against it. Witschonke asked Evers what rights he would have at the meeting to possibly dismiss him. Evers said he would have the right to bring witnesses, cross examine other speakers and present evidence. All of which will be done under oath, Evers said. every meeting, Thompson said. Of the 12, I feel we have 11 that have a passion for economic development. Birge said the County Commission should not get involved in the decisions of the IDA but does need to make sure it has the right board in place. Commissioner Grady Johnson then addressed the issue and strongly disagreed. He said the County Commission should be guilty of malfeasance of office for not addressing issues involving the IDA that may have criminal overtones. If we are going to condemn one man, lets back up and look at it (IDA) from Bill Lambert down, Johnson said. He went on to say Evers has a conflict of interest in serving both boards and the commission has failed to address several IDA issues in the past. Colon Lambert then told Johnson the Florida Bar Association determined Evers does not have a conflict by representing the IDA and the Board of County Commission-ers. Johnson then said Evers was going against State Statutes by representing multiple boards. Evers then asked Johnson what statute that would be. You tell me, Johnson said before telling Evers he has been a failure to the board and he should be dismissed. Chairman Rick Knight reminded the board its role is to appoint and possibly remove IDA members. He said he would rather the IDA vote if a member should be removed or reviewed before the County Commission takes up the issue. Thompson then made a mo tion to add an agenda item for the first meeting in April to consider removing Witschonke. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert then addressed the board over the issue. He said he felt it was all about differing philosophies, and began to say how Johnson was conservative. Lambert said Johnson told him he would not let Northerners move to Hardee County and do to it what hap pened to Naples. Thats a lie, Johnson quickly replied. Johnson said he was talking about the costs of infrastructure for high-dollar gated communities, and never said anything about Northerners. He told Lam bert not to twist his words. Be cautious about the lying, Johnson said. Under what purview would you point your finger at me and tell me to be cautious? Lambert asked Johnson Johnson said it is not just Northerners who move into the high-dollar communities. Lambert said there are philo sophical differences as to what fostering and promoting eco nomic development is. He said the IDAs job is to create job diversity, and there is no threat of gated communities popping up here. Lambert said Johnson has hinted at criminal activity re garding the IDA but has never specifically said what it is. Johnson said the auditor generals report showed the IDA skated State Statutes under the guidelines of fostering economic development. Johnson then renewed his hopes for a federal grand jury to look into the failure of the BOCCs oversight of the IDA board and the actions of the IDA. Lambert then asked Johnson to put his allegations in writing so everyone can know what they are. Citizen Frank Kirkland told the board he felt Witschonke was looking out for the best interest of the public. Rhonda Cole said Donald Samuels and Witschonke were the only IDA members willing to ask difficult questions. She said she would like to know why other IDA members vote the way they do. Pam Bellflower said the com mission should evaluate all the members of the IDA like the board asked them to do, and not single out one member. Witschonke then addressed the boar,d but Knight told him to save anything regarding his defense for the proper time. He went on the say PFManufacturing, which is moving into the Commerce Park, started out as a generator manufacturing company and has morphed into something else. Witschonke said he has repeatedly asked to see a working generator but has never been provided with one. Gene Davis, a member of the IDA, told the commission the IDA puts up with the same thing every meeting after votes have STATE PARKContinued From 1A include St. Patricks Day 5K Run on March 22 at 5 p.m. at Gasparilla Island State Park in Estero; Tails and Trails 5K on March 29 at 9 a.m. at Lake Man atee State Park in Brad-enton; Fakahatchee Frenzy 5K Obstacle Run on April 5 at 10 a.m. at Fakahatchee Strand Pre-serve State Park in Copeland; and Spring Fling 5K on April 12 at 9 a.m. at Little Manatee River State Park in Wimauma.

The park is located at 888 Lake Branch Road in Bowling Green. There is a $3 per carload park entrance fee. SUNSHINEContinued From 1A County Commission chambers. According to the report, Johnson basically reiterated the information given by Deeson, and EDC business was not discussed between board mem bers. After Johnson talked to the investigator, he e-mailed County Manager Lex Albritton to find out what involvement his office had in filing the Sunshine Law complaint. Albritton re-plied the only involvement was filling the verbal public-records request for the video from IDA member Jim See. Five days after Menges conversation with Johnson, he received an e-mail from Kuhl-man in reference to Bill Lambert and the county attorney trying to frame IDA/EDC members Horst and Don on a trumped up Sunshine case. Menge stated he did not dis cuss any details of the investiga tion with Kuhlman, however he generated an e-mail with infor mation that was discussed with Johnson. In light of this e-mail, it ap pears Mr. Kuhlman utilized in formation discussed with Commissioner Johnson about an open and active investigation, Menge wrote. Menge stated the investiga tion was not compromised, but it does show information is being shared among a group of individuals actively engaged with the EDC/IDA. In light of the ongoing dis pute between multiple parties, I question the reason this com plaint was forwarded to the agency, Menge concluded. His report further noted he spent 20 hours on the investigation. IDA members were captured on security video holding a meeting about an active IDA project, which would constitute a violation of the Sunshine Law, the report states. Lambert then provided Menge with an excerpt of the statute he believed was violated. Menge later conducted a phone interview with Deeson, who confirmed he conducted in terviews in the County Commission chambers following a hearing regarding the release of Lamberts deposition. Deeson stated he is cur rently working a story involving improprieties of the Economic Development Council, accord ing to Menges report. Deeson acknowledged Samuels and Witschonke were pres ent, but said they did not talk to each other about EDC business, Menge wrote. After reviewing the footage, Menge could not find Samuels and Witschonke conversing with each other. I found no evidence in the video that the two suspected board members engaged one an other, he wrote. Lacking any audio to the contrary, I find no evidence that the board mem bers engaged in activity covered under the Sunshine Law. In a letter to Menge concern ing the investigation, Samuels said he felt it was a false com plaint and a conspiracy to have him removed from the board. A few days later, Menge was contacted by Commissioner Johnson, inquiring who to con tact in reference to a citizen complaint involving a mobile home. Menge then asked Johnson about the gathering in the Your Business Could Appear Here!Nancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce Daniels The Herald Advocate 773-3255www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com The Herald-AdvocateO ON NL LI IN NE E! !D Do on n t t W Wa ai it t O On n T Th he e P Po os st t O Of ff fi ic ce e T To o D De el li iv ve er rThe Herald-AdvocateR Re ec ce ei iv ve e y yo ou ur r p pa ap pe er r W We ed dn ne es sd da ay y N No o M Ma at tt te er r W Wh he er re e Y Yo ou u L Li iv ve e a at tw ww ww w. .T Th he eH He er ra al ld dA Ad dv vo oc ca at te e. .c co om m Subscription Rates$5 for 1 Month $19 for 6 Months $37 for 1 Year $70 for 2 YearsThe Herald-AdvocateHardee Countys Hometown CoverageSee Website For Details.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A TALKIN’ TURKEY Hopefully, you’ve already brushed up on your turkey calling, ’cause spring gobbler season is here. Whether you prefer to use amouth call, box call, slate or any combination, March means it’stime to talk turkey and I, for one, am in full turkey mode! And this Saturday is the big day!One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey.This unique bird is one of five subspecies of wild turkey in NorthAmerica. The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and nowhere else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-statehunters. They’re similar to the eastern subspecies (found in thePanhandle) but tend to be a bit smaller and typically are darker withless white barring on the primary flight feathers of their wings. The National Wild Turkey Federation and the state Fish & Wildlife Commission recognize any wild turkey harvested withinor south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union,Bradford, Clay and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies. Easternturkeys and hybrids are found north and west of these counties andinto the Panhandle. The highly anticipated spring turkey season came in first south of State Road 70, and runs to April 6. In the rest of the state, it runsMarch 15 to April 20. In Holmes County, the season runs March15-30. Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the daily bag limit is one. The season and possession limit on turkeysis two, except in Holmes County, where the season limit is one.Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour before sunrise tosunset, but on Wildlife Management Areas, you must quit huntingat 1 p.m. To participate in spring turkey hunting, you’ll need a Florida hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan to pursue a gobbleron one of Florida’s many WMAs, you also must purchase a man agement area permit. Happy hunting!

8A The Herald-Advocate, March 13, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Local residents who are about to be evicted, are behind on theirrent or facing an emergency sit uation may get help with rentpayments. Until June 30, applications will be received by the HardeeHelp Center from local folkswho are in danger of becominghomeless due to their inability topay their monthly rent. There are several steps to be coming eligible for the grant theHelp Center has received fromthe state Department of Childrenand Families. One main one is that the ap plicant must be a Hardee Countyresident and be either a U.S. cit izen or have a permanent resi dency green card. Another is that a person or family must be in the extremelylow income range, which is less than $11,850 for one, $13,550for two, $15,250 for three,$16,900 for four, $18,250 forfive, $19,650 for six, $21,000for seven and $22,350 for aneight-person household. An application can be obtained at the Help Center, 713 E.Bay St., Wauchula, or by goingto the website www.hardeehelp center.org. The completed appli cation must be brought to thecenter by the applicant and an appointment will be scheduledwithin one week. At the interview, the applicant must provide identification,proof of income or loss of job,proof of assets (bank account,etc.), have a delinquency noticeor other proof of economic hard ship, and show documentationof unexpected medical, car re pair or other bills that havecaused hardship. The rent assistance program is not only for those with an evic tion notice. It is also to preventeviction from happening byavoiding late payments, ex plained Help Center specialistLidenia Servin. It is, however,not for those who have alreadyreceived some type of assistancethrough the Help Center withinthe last year or twice in twoyears, Servin said. Those who have lost a job or don’t work regularly will be re ferred to Goodwill Manasota orCareer Source for job applica tions. All applications must attend a 90-minute financial educationclass and be able to show plansfor future financial managementto avoid rent deficits. For more information, call 773-0034. Can’t Pay Your Rent? Collecting Q: I recently pur chased a Manophone,a type of spring-woundphonograph that wasmanufactured by theMusic Master ofPhonegraphs com pany, probably duringthe 1920s. I paid $400and wonder if I over paid. I also need tofind needles for the machine. —Dan, Bethalto, Ill. A: I'm not familiar with your model, but spring-wound ma chines seem to be selling in the$300 to $500 range, dependingon the make, model and condi tion. For needles, call the NeedleDoctor at 800-229-0644. Thesteel Victrola needles are $6 perpack, plus handling and postage. Q: During the 1930s, when I was 6 or 7, my mom bought mea Shirley Temple pitcher. I stillhave it. What is it worth?Barbara, Alton, Ill. A: The cobalt-blue Shirley Temple pitchers were first man ufactured by the Hazel Atlasglass company in 1934 and pro duction continued for the nexteight years. The pitcher was partof a three-piece set that consistedof the pitcher, a bowl and mug.The pitchers were sometimesgiven away as premiums inboxes of Wheaties and Bisquick. Your pitcher is probably worthabout $75, assuming it is in goodto excellent condition. In recentyears, reproductions have beenmade, and if you find one in ashop or at an antiques mall that is cheaply priced andappears in pristine con dition, jump on the goodship lollipop and sailaway, because chancesare it is a fake. Q: My late husband had a box of booksthat he had when he was a child. I am en closing a list and would like toknow values. —Lydia, Albuquerque, N.M. A: You have several excellent used-book dealers in your area,and I suggest you begin yoursearch by contacting them. If youhave a computer, you might ac cess www.abe.com. Type in thetitle and author of each book, andit will reveal dealers who have itfor sale. Pay close attention toedition and condition. Since I noticed that several of the books you listed are LittleGolden Books, I also might rec ommend you get a copy of "Col lecting Little Golden Books" bySteve Santi (Krause Books).

By Healthy Exchanges DON'T JUST SIT THERE There's some grim news for those of us who aren't active. Astudy out of Northwestern Uni versity's Feinberg School ofMedicine in Chicago found thatif we're over the age of 60, everyhour in a day that we sit in creases our risk of becomingdisabled — by 46 percent. But it gets worse. Even if we're active at other times, itdoesn't completely offset the re sults of ... sitting. No, the study didn't say that we definitely will become dis abled if we spend too much timesitting (that's a topic for otherstudies), but clearly the oddsaren't in our favor. For the purposes of the study, researchers defined "disabled"as not being able to take care ofour needs — the activities ofdaily living, such as gettingdressed. Most of the participantsspent about nine hours a day sit ting. The study looked at the level of moderate to vigorous activity.According to the Centers for Disease Control and Preven-tion, moderate exercise is effortrated as a 5 or 6 on a scale of 0to 10. Vigorous exercise is a 7 or8 on that scale. One minute ofD75=@=CA/1B7D7BG3?C/:ABE=minutes of moderate activity.The study found that exercisingfor even 10 minutes at a time,for a total of 150 minutes aweek, as well as doing muscle-strengthening exercises twodays a week, brings benefits. For even greater health bene fits, researchers suggest uppingthe 2 1/2 hours a week to 5hours. Muscle strengthening caninclude working with resistancebands, yoga and weight lifting. While those hours don't use up all the "sitting" time we alsoengage in, it does help to eventhe risk score with less sittingand more moving.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7B C C e e l l e e b b r r a a t t e e P P e e a a n n u u t t s s ! March is National Peanut month! It's time to celebrateAmerica's most popular nut. The peanut plant probably originated in South America. Eu ropean explorers first discoveredpeanuts in Brazil. Tribes in cen tral Brazil also ground peanutswith maize to make a drink. Peanuts were growing as far north as Mexico when the Span ish began their exploration of theNew World. The explorers tookpeanuts back to Spain, and fromthere traders and explorersspread them to Asia and Africa.Africans were the first people tointroduce peanuts to NorthAmerica beginning in the 1700s. Peanuts were grown in Vir ginia in the 1800s as a commer cial crop, and used mainly foroil, food and as a cocoa substi tute. At this time, peanuts wereregarded as a food for livestockand the poor, and were consid ered difficult to grow and har vest. Peanuts became prominent after the Civil War when Unionsoldiers found they liked themand took them home. Botharmies subsisted on this high-protein food source. Their popu larity grew in the late 1800swhen PT Barnum's circus wag ons traveled across the countryand vendors called out, "Hotroasted peanuts!" to the crowds.Peanuts also became popular atbaseball games. In the early 1900s, peanuts be came a significant agriculturalcrop when the boll weevil threat ened the South's cotton crop.Following the suggestions ofnoted scientist Dr. George Wash ington Carver, peanuts served asan effective commercial cropand, for a time, rivaled the posi tion of cotton in the South. There is evidence that ancient South American Inca Indianswere the first to grind peanuts tomake peanut butter. In the UnitedStates, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg(of cereal fame) invented a ver sion of peanut butter in 1895.Peanut butter was first intro duced at the St. Louis World'sFair in 1904. It is believed thatthe U.S. Army popularized thepeanut butter and jelly sandwich,using them for sustenance duringmaneuvers in World War II. Americans average more than six pounds of peanut productseach year. Peanut butter accountsfor about half that total — with KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis $850 million in retail sales eachyear. Despite the fact that peanuts are high in fat, they are still anexcellent food choice becausethey provide a variety of impor tant nutrients. Peanuts containprotein, fiber and healthy mo nounsaturated and polyunsatu rated fats, all of which improvehealth and lower the risk ofchronic disease. A study of more than 15,000 peanut consumers determinedthat they had higher levels of vi tamin A, vitamin E, folate, mag nesium, zinc, iron, calcium anddietary fiber than people who didnot eat peanuts. These nutrientsare needed by the body to func tion properly. Peanuts play a role in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol,and improving longevity andperformance. Peanuts help pre vent chronic diseases such asheart disease, diabetes and can cer. Studies have shown they candecrease lipid levels and may re duce inflammation, a cause ofchronic disease. Researchers alsohave found that mortality de creases as the frequency of eat ing nuts like peanuts increases. In addition to all of these won derful benefits, peanuts are af fordable and easy to find,making them a great addition toa nutritious diet.

The first year of TrophyCatch ended, and the awards were all given out, but the challenge is still on for year two. TrophyCatch re wards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing largemouth bass heavier than eight pounds in Florida. Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J., earned the TrophyCatch Cham pionship ring for the first season. It was presented at Bass Pro Shops in Orlando in January. Williams winning catch was a 13-pound, 14ounce largemouth from Rodman Reservoir. He also earned a free ($500 value) fiberglass replica of his catch and other awards totaling approximately $1,000. A $10,000 check was handed to Peter Perez at a special ceremony at West Lake Tohopekaliga. Perez caught the largest TrophyCatch-verified bass from Osceola County to win the prize. He caught his winning 12-pound, three-ounce bass last March in a neighborhood pond on a Rat-L-Trap. The winner of the 2013 Phoenix 619 bass boat, powered by Mercury, was surprised angler Frank Ay. His prize was presented to him following a club tournament on Lake Okeechobee. Ay won the $40,000 grand prize via a random drawing from among 4,000 an glers who registered for TrophyCatch the first season. For the second year of this program, documenting has gotten simpler. Start with a free registration at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, and you will be entered to win a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury and equipped with a PowerPole. This year the only required photo is one of the entire bass (head to tail) on a scale, with the weight vis ible. Always attempt to get that shot, but if it isnt perfect, supple ment it with a close-up of the scale, a photo of the entire fish on a bumpboard or tape measure, and maybe even a shot of the basss girth. The second year is off to a great start, with 63 Lunker entries (8-9.9 pounds) and 26 Trophy Club (10-12.9 pounds) recorded in less than the first four months, and more than twice as many entries in December 2013 compared with December 2012. The peak season is still in front of us, and FWC biologists have worked to narrow down a list of top sites to recommend to bass an glers for 2014 based on data from anglers, scientific sampling and an understanding of habitat trends and local conditions. miles) Now that you have the facts, make sure you have a valid license, register at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, bring a camera and scale to weigh your catch, and start exploring some of the best bass fishing in the world. Fish Busters By Bob WattendorfFlorida Fish & Wildlife Commission Inside OutBy Chip Ballard YOU GOTTA START SOMEWHERE As long ago as I can remember, certainly since third grade when I heard for the first time Elvis Presley singing Thats All Right, Mama on one of those little yellow-labeled 45 rpm SUN records, I have wanted to sing and play guitar. Throughout my childhood, teenage and early adult years the I was too shy to sing anywhere else. Time did not diminish the desire. If anything the passing years seemed to intensify it. At 31 I decided it was now or never. If I put it off much longer, I might never get to it. I dragged out of my bedroom closet an old Truetone guitar Id bought as a child for $7 and promptly abandoned because the raucous shrieks it emitted did not remotely resemble any of the sounds Elvis made. I bought some songbooks and learned a few chords. I practiced religiously, at least two hours every evening and usually more. For the first two weeks I believed I had some sort of neurological or muscular disorder. I knew where I wanted my fingers to go, on which strings in which frets, but the fingers absolutely refused to go where my mind told them. Finally, after great aggravation and a real desire to smash the confounded instrument into splinters, I managed to rattle through G, C and D. By now the mental frustration had given way to physical pain as the steel strings began to bite and cut into my fingertips so badly they would sometimes bleed. I gritted my teeth and before too long I could stumble through a few chords without feeling spastic. But I soon learned that making the right fingerings and pressing the strings down hard enough onto the fret to make a clear chord were different issues, especially on that old Truetone whose neck was crooked as sin, and on which the strings hovered up almost half an inch above the frets. I invested in a better guitar and, despite despair and a solid be lief I was wasting my time, I hung on and kept at it. Then, at long last, the day came that after an hour or two of G, C and D-ing, I dis covered not only was there no blood splattered across the pages of my songbooks, but also that my fingertips were not burning as much as usual. Close examination of my fingertips revealed that the bites and bruises had morphed into calluses. I became so excited I banged away for another hour, at the end of which I could strum G, C and D chords with every note, six times out of 10, ringing true! Not that I was ready for Carnegie Hall, but it was a beginning. There are dozens of songs you can play with three chords. Now that Id mastered those, I began to sing along with my strumming, an endeavor that started cats yowling and dogs howling for blocks around. Although Id been told the quality of my voice was good, I was still often picking sour notes, which my pitch automatically fol lowed, and Id cringe as soon as I heard myself go off key. I wanted to quit, hang it up, throw in the towel. But fate inter vened and I met a lady who sang in a band and also taught voice. We became friends and sometimes sang together. When she told me I did not know how to breathe, I thought she was joking, but she convinced me it was true and commenced to show me how it was done. Slowly, gradually, I began to notice I was improving. New peo ple came into my life, friends who were better pickers than I, and every time I played with them I learned a little more. I still dont know much, but a year after dragging that old True tone out of the closet and getting serious with it, I formed my own little band and played weekends at honky-tonks all over Manatee County, as well as occasional weddings and parties. While Ive yet to pose any threat to the reputation Elvis estab lished recording for SUN Studios, I still enjoy making music and have never for a moment regretted the aggravation and frustration, the burning and bleeding fingertips it took to learn those first three chords.

According to the American Academy of Neurology, unlesspreventive measures are developed, Alzheimer’s rates will nearlytriple over the next four decades. Worldwide, Alzheimer’s rates willaffect 100 million people by 2050. Scientific studies suggest that preventive strategies are now fea sible through heart-healthy eating and exercise. Studies suggest thatthe same foods that are beneficial for the heart are also healthful forthe brain and may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The seven dietary principles to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease were prepared for presentation at the International Confer ence on Nutrition and the Brain in Washington, D.C. in July 2013.They are as follows: 1. Minimize your intake of saturated fats and trans fats. Satu rated fat is found primarily in dairy products, meats and certain oils(coconut and palm oils). Trans fats are found in many snack pastriesand fried foods, and are listed on labels as “partially hydrogenatedoils.” 2. Vegetables, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), fruits and whole grains should be the primary staples of the diet. 3. One ounce of nuts or seeds (one small handful) daily pro vides a healthful source of Vitamin E. 4. A reliable source of Vitamin B12, such as fortified foods or a supplement providing at least the recommended daily allowance(2.4 mcg per day for adults) should be part of your daily diet. 5. When selecting multiple vitamins, choose those without iron and copper, and consume iron supplements only when directed byyour physician. 6. While aluminum’s role in Alzheimer’s disease remains a matter of investigation, it is prudent to avoid the use of cookware,antacids, baking powder or other products that contribute dietary aluminum. 7. Include aerobic exercise in your routine, equivalent to 40 minutes of brisk walking three times per week. While treatment for the disease remains unsatisfactory, scien tific studies suggest that these preventive strategies are now feasibleand may reduce the risk by half or more. As Alzheimer’s rates and medical costs continue to climb, per haps these simple changes to diet and lifestyle may help in prevent ing cognitive problems.

She made her final jour ney and the funeral will be today(Thursday). I did not know that “Ma” Smith had nine children. That isquite an accomplishment thisday and time considering theyall turned out good. She and herhusband must have been superparents. I was also told that theGreen family had nine childrenand they all turned out good.They probably all grew up in theage where the Bible and prayerwere in school and teachers hadauthority to discipline, if neces sary. I think we would call that“the good ol’ days.” Norma Alejandro was in the hospital overnight and is stillfeeling bad. She will have tohave more tests. Essie Deer,Sharon Lynn, Beth Sasser, Wal ter Owens, Billy Porter, PaulineWalker and Tara McGaugheyare all on our prayer list. Tarahad a skin cancer removed fromher face. Please pray for all ofthese and others you may knowabout. Cline and Margie Albritton were Atlanta visitors last week.They drove up because of Alli son Albritton being so sick.

About the only fair thing left in the world today is the weather, and it is getting where you cannot depend on that anymore. Concerning life, when we are young life is like sitting down to a gigantic smorgasbord of seafood, but when we are old we do not eat because we are fed up. Never wallow in anothers misery for certainly your turn will come. In general the lawless among us live for the moment and not for the future. How many times have you ever heard Now if that aint so, then there aint no cow in Texas. But brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you this idea that there is no cow in Texas, my mother-in-law Harpoon dispels that myth. Truly it has been said in todays world that good women are hard to find and bad ones are hard to get rid of. But I ask, if you were able to sort out a good woman among the masses, where in the world would you find a good man to go with her? Gentlemen who are old like myself who are looking for the love of our lives, hurry things along, pal, because we might be a little short on time. Concerning money, it can make you or break you. I might get a little aggravated with Sugar Possum sometimes, but I know one thing, she sure knows how to cook a TV dinner. I wonder how it would go over if her boyfriend promised her the moon, and he was an astronaut slated for a lunar landing the next day, Hard to say, huh? At my so-called best friend Scissorbills funeral, he winked at my wife and she fell for him. What is confidence? It is something when misinterpreted can cause its bearer a big slice of trouble.

DONOHUE: Two of my children, a boy in the second grade and a girl in kindergarten, have been scratching their behinds for a week. I mentioned this to my neighbor, and she said they probably have pinworms. That made me sick to my stomach. How do I know for sure? If they have them, where did they come from? I have two other children. Should they, my husband and I also be treated? I am really upset. A.D. worms are easily treated. They're harmless and don't indicate a lack of cleanliness in your home. They're found worldwide, and no stratum of society is immune to infection with them. Transmission takes place when pinworm eggs find their way into another person's mouth. Scratching embeds eggs under the fingernails. The majority of infections take place when an adult or child with pinworm eggs under his or her nails or on his or her hands touches another, and that person then transfers them to the mouth. In the digestive tract, an adult pinworm emerges in a month to six weeks. Infected people perpetuate the cycle of in fection in their own bodies by transmitting eggs to their mouths. The mature female pinworm travels down the digestive tract at night and deposits her eggs at or just outside the anus. A female lays more than 11,000 eggs. They're the cause of intense itching. The diagnosis is made by find ing the worm or its eggs. The best time to look is first thing in the morning, be fore the child has washed. A pinworm looks like a thin, white thread, about four-tenths of an inch (1 cm) long. Make the search with a flashlight and a magnifying glass. Scotch tape, fixed to a tongue depressor or a similar ob ject and pressed against the skin near the anus, traps eggs, which the doctor can see with a microscope. The tape is fixed to the de pressor with the sticky side on the outside. The ends of the tape are folded over to adhere to the two sides of the depressor. Mebendazole and albendazole do a good job in getting rid of the worms. All family members should be treated. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My doctor has me on a calcium tablet because I'm nearing the osteoporosis line. I'm 63 and never have taken any kind of medicine. I hate to break my record. Can't I get enough calcium from foods to reach my cal cium goal? Let me know what foods, please. B.A. enough calcium from foods, and it's as good a way, if not better, of get ting that mineral than are tablets and pills. yogurt has 413 mg; 8 ounces of low fat milk, 300 mg; 6 ounces of cal cium-fortified orange juice, 378 mg; 3 ounces of canned sardines, 324 mg; 1.5 ounces of cheddar cheese, 306 mg; 1 cup of cottage cheese, 138 to 206 mg. A woman of your age needs about 1,200 mg of calcium a day. Most bookstores have small books with the nutritional con tent of foods, and they aren't expensive. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

The Hardee JV boys baseball team lost at DeSoto last Tuesday when time was called in the fifth inning. The Thursday game was cancelled because of heavy rain all day. It was the fourth cancellation for the junior boys this season. They have only played four games. The junior Cats are scheduled to play at home twice this week, Monday the opponent was Sebring. Today (Thursday) it is p.m. start instead of 6 p.m. Next weeks only game is at Avon Park on Tuesday. Play resumes after Spring Break with a trip to Avon Park. In last weeks action at DeSoto, Hardee opened with a trio of tallies in the first inning. With one down, Adam Salas and Brandon Franks both drew walks. Russell Weems doubled to left field to score both teammates. A long single by Kyle Choate brought Weems home and Hardee led 3-0. The junior Bulldogs got one run in the home half of the first on a walk, stolen base, sacrifice and passed ball. Wildcat pitcher Aaron Harrison got his first of five strikeouts in stopping the threat. The junior Cats added an in surance run in the top of the sec ond. Carlos Camacho singled and raced home on an error on a Franks hit. It was 4-1. DeSoto clawed its way back with a run in the second inning, three in the third and two more in the fourth. When Hardee left two aboard in the top of the fifth, the game was called on the time limit, leaving Hardee on the low side of the 6-4 game.

(PINKSHEETS: BION), a cleantech company that utilizes patented technology to build environmentallyfriendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced today that it reached an agreement to purchase for $1 over 50 acres of land in Taylor County, FL from the Taylor County Development Authority (TCDA). Under the terms of the agreement, the TCDA will also furnish BioNitrogen with a $5 million loan to be used for plant engineering and site development work to be repaid upon the tax free bond closing of the plant. This is one of several planned facilities in the State of Florida and the southeast regional footprint for BioNitrogen. Located in Perry, FL, this location is ideal for a BioNitrogen plant, because it is well located for feedstock and comes equipped with access to rail services, trucking and vehicular transportation, electricity, water, natural gas and telecom services. Closing of the land pur chase and loan is expected to occur as soon as practical. As part of the agreement, BioNitrogen agrees to construct a plant with an investment in excess of $200 million and provide a minimum of 45 direct full-time employees in Taylor County. The plant will produce approximately 200,000 tons per year of urea fertilizer and use local solid waste biomass such as wood waste as its feedstock. Closing of the bond and funding for this plant is expected to occur within 180 days, subject to the timing of approvals and government commitments. "On behalf of the Taylor County Development Authority and Taylor county citizens, we look forward to working closely with the BioNitrogen management as they begin construction of the fertilizer plant. Not only will the plant bring excellent, high paying jobs to Taylor, but the plant builds on the County's development plan designed to bring robust manufacturing industry to the County. The construction of this new environmentally friendly fertilizer plant in Perry is an exciting development and a great opportunity for our local partners and com munity," said Jim Bassett, Chairman of the Taylor Economic Development Council. It will allow us to utilize our local technical centers, including the local award-wining institute for millwright and welding, and our local work training programs. We are very excited to have secured this important property. This is a critical development for BioNitrogen and provides us with the land and access to resources we need as an initial step in committing to build a plant in Taylor County, said Bryan Kornegay Jr., President and CFO of BioNitrogen. Funding from the Taylor County Development Authority is central to the success of the overall plant construction project and we are pleased to partner with it. The County has done a tremendous job of providing inducements and laying the path forward for state grants and construction of a plant in this County, as well as creating a long term partnership with us. The strong wood basket for feedstock, local technical centers for an educated workforce and excellent access to rail and utilities with minimal tie-in or up front capital costs provide huge time and cost incentives for us at this site, said Ernie Iznaga, VP Operations. The economic development rate offered by Duke Energy is an aggressive recruitment tool that is a real game-changer for energy intensive businesses like BioNitrogen, said Jeremy Susac, former head of Floridas energy office and an energy attorney with Real Energy & Environment Strategies based in Tallahassee, Florida. In addition to negotiations in Taylor County, BioNitrogen is continuing its negotiations in Florida and elsewhere to construct similar facilities with similar economic impact. Further details on other sites are forthcoming. Todays news in Taylor County is great news and enables BioNitrogen to take one step closer to doing business in Florida. Simply stated, we are thrilled to be working on sites in Florida served by world class utilities companies. The Florida utilities at Taylor and other sites have taken a very proactive approach to keep us focused on doing business in the State of Florida and we look forward to finalizing interconnection agreements with them shortly, once the states economic de velopment office carries through with its incentive packages, said Bryan Kornegay Jr. But, for the sake of clarity, we havent lost focus on promising sites in other states most notably Louisiana. 3:13c

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11D DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Our dog "Bailey" is about ayear and a half old, and he hasalways gotten very excitedaround the kids and guests,and jumps up to paw at them.The kids love to play with him,which encourages him to jumpup more. He is otherwise verylovable. How can I stop this be havior? —Sign me "Muddy Shirt" in Madison, Wis. DEAR MUDDY SHIRT: Jumping up is a very commonbehavior in dogs. The key here isto teach Bailey that it isn't ac ceptable. How? Well, yelling or getting excited yourself when Baileyjumps up will likely do nothing,or even make the problem worse.Pushing Bailey away or swattinghis nose isn't helpful, either. Instead, try the "I'm not inter acting with you" method. WhenBailey starts to jump up (such aswhen you come home) staycalm, but look away and foldyour arms. Say "off!" in a strongbut calm voice. Turn your back on him if need be. Now — this is important — as soon as Bailey stops the behav ior, reward him by looking athim and calmly petting him. If hestarts to jump again (and hewill), repeat the steps. Basic obedience training plays a key role here. Every day, teachBailey to sit, stay, lie down,come and heel. When he beginsto jump or get hyper, use thenon-interaction method, and assoon as he stops jumping, say"sit." When he obeys you, re ward him with calm petting. What you're teaching Bailey is that he will not get the attentionhe craves if he behaves a certainway (jumping). Make sure toteach your kids to do the same. There are lots of resources and methods to address jumping up,such as the ASPCA's pet-caresection.

Column 3A IDA Member Faces Possible ExpulsionState Park Hosts Annual Race Bike For A Good Cause SAO: Sunshine Law Complaint Unfounded By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate An Industrial Development Authority member faces possi ble removal from the board less than a year after being appointed as county commissioners decide whether to oust him for malfeas ance in office. The IDA passed a motion in January asking the commission to review and evaluate all of the IDA members after Horst Witschonke continually brought up matters not on the agenda, off t opic or were which already voted on and passed at previous meetings. County attorney Ken Evers said the board could evaluate the overall actions of the IDA, but it has never evaluated an individ ua l member nor does it have criteria in place to do so. Witschonkes fate will be determined at a public hearing scheduled for the morning of April 3. It was not noted if any or all of t he other 11 members will be reviewed. Commissioner Colon Lambert said he does not like to have to be critical of an individual in public, then gave his review of the IDA and offered some sug gestions on how to make it run smoother. He said some questions should be asked prior to the meeting with the director or staff to help move it along faster. Lambert said he appreciates all members willing to serve in a subjective environment. I am very concerned about his (Witschonke) desire to foster e conomic growth, he said. I am not ready to hash it out today but I think we should in the future. Commissioner Sue Birge said she attends the IDA meetings and sees how they struggle to stay in order. I feel we need to recognize the IDA chairman is asking us for help, and we need to address the situation at hand, she said. Commissioner Mike Thompson, who serves as the IDA liaison, said he agreed with Lambert and Birge. I sit at the table and evaluate the board See IDA 2A By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate Two Industrial Development Authority members accused of breaking Floridas Government-in-the-Sunshine Law will not have charges brought against them as the State Attor-neys Of fice has determined a violation did not occur. The alleged violation occurred in the County Commission chambers in January, when se curity footage showed Don-ald Samuels and Horst Wits-chonke were part of a small group of people who gathered after a court hearing regarding an ongo ing public records lawsuit against the IDA. Samuels and Witschonke, along with Commissioner Grady Johnson and citizens Frank Kirkland and Hank Kuhlman, met with Tampa television news reporter Mike Deeson, who in terviewed Kuhlman and Samuels in the room. The next day IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert called to report what he believed was a S unshine Law violation to State Attorneys Office investigator Stephen Menge. Lambert said he felt since the IDA has been under constant scrutiny and based on its history, he needed to bring this information concerning two board members to the attention of the state attorney, Menges report states. Menge met with Lambert a few days later and was provided with security footage of the meeting. It did not include any audio. The video was reviewed at the IDA office, and the people captured on the footage were identified by Lambert and IDA employees Kristi Schierling and Sara Pelham. During the video, Kuhlman is seen holding up what appears to be a map of the planned Com merce Park expansion, which is an ongoing IDA project.

Kellys ColumnBy Jim The city of Bowling Green has recently built a new sidewalk on the south side of East Main Street and an extension of the side walk on the north side of East Main Street. There are several new homes in the area with families. The homes were built by volunteers with Habitat For Humanity. There is a group home for adults near our house. A resident this week introduced himself to me as Walker Texas Ranger, and he had a badge. However, he did not look like Chuck Norris. A decal on the back of a pickup truck in Wauchula this week showed a stick man upset at the Sierra Club and the wording, Florida phosphate feeds my family. This is an old struggle: developing resources for the public good vs. keeping the environment pristine. Modern phosphate minings goal is to help the world grow the food it needs while doing a good job on reclamation. A major challenge of Florida and many other states and nations is maintaining a safe and adequate water supply. A person could have the beginnings of a good diet using namesakes of the following streets in Bowling Green: Coconut, Banana, Lemon, Pineapple, Orange, Grape and Lime. Our family recently planted five young slash pine trees we re ceived for free from Mosaic at the Hardee County Fair. Pines make beautiful trees and provide habitat for birds and pine cone food for squirrels. The fallen pine needles can be used for mulch and as tooth picks. Hardee Superintendent of Schools David Durastanti is proud that Hardee students won 9 of the 19 special awards at the recent five-county Heartland Regional Science and Engineering Fair that recognizes students for their achievements in science. These students were from junior high and high school level. In the junior division Hardee Junior High students earned 5 of the 12 spots to represent the Heartland Region at the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair. HJH students earned a first place rib bon in every category, and HHS students earned a first place ribbon in all but three categories, a remarkable achievement. Duristanti gave credit to teachers, support staff, students, par ents, administrators, business partners, churches and civic organi zations. Hillary Clinton, wife of former U.S. President Bill Clinton who was secretary of state in the first term of President Barack Obama and considered a strong potential Democratic candidate for president in the 2016 election, once wrote a book entitled, It Takes A Village To Raise A Child. BIKEContinued From 1A go after coming out of a destruc tive lifestyle. None of the women at Lydias House pay to live there. The goal of Lydias is to get these women in a more stable environment so they will be able to live better and healthier lives. The bike-a-thon is a way to help pay for necessary expenses and continue to be able to help more women in need. But before the race takes place, Lydias House will host an Open House on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m. White says there will be refreshments and some true Southern hospitality. Everyone is welcome to at tend and tour the house. For an extra bonus, Dr. Barbara Carl ton, who was married in the house, will be signing copies of her book from 5 to 6 p.m. She will be sharing stories of the home where she celebrated her wedding reception. All of the proceeds gathered from her book-signing will also go directly to Lydias House. By completing the race, riders will not only be helping Lydias House they will also be able to win the grand prize, a two-day and two-night cruise to the Ba hamas.

The dead horse has been buried and they wont let it go, Davis said. When you lease a building, it is not our job to run their business. The motion passed with a 41, vote with Johnson voting against it. Witschonke asked Evers what rights he would have at the meeting to possibly dismiss him. Evers said he would have the right to bring witnesses, cross examine other speakers and present evidence. All of which will be done under oath, Evers said. every meeting, Thompson said. Of the 12, I feel we have 11 that have a passion for economic development. Birge said the County Commission should not get involved in the decisions of the IDA but does need to make sure it has the right board in place. Commissioner Grady Johnson then addressed the issue and strongly disagreed. He said the County Commission should be guilty of malfeasance of office for not addressing issues involving the IDA that may have criminal overtones. If we are going to condemn one man, lets back up and look at it (IDA) from Bill Lambert down, Johnson said. He went on to say Evers has a conflict of interest in serving both boards and the commission has failed to address several IDA issues in the past. Colon Lambert then told Johnson the Florida Bar Association determined Evers does not have a conflict by representing the IDA and the Board of County Commission-ers. Johnson then said Evers was going against State Statutes by representing multiple boards. Evers then asked Johnson what statute that would be. You tell me, Johnson said before telling Evers he has been a failure to the board and he should be dismissed. Chairman Rick Knight reminded the board its role is to appoint and possibly remove IDA members. He said he would rather the IDA vote if a member should be removed or reviewed before the County Commission takes up the issue. Thompson then made a mo tion to add an agenda item for the first meeting in April to consider removing Witschonke. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert then addressed the board over the issue. He said he felt it was all about differing philosophies, and began to say how Johnson was conservative. Lambert said Johnson told him he would not let Northerners move to Hardee County and do to it what hap pened to Naples. Thats a lie, Johnson quickly replied. Johnson said he was talking about the costs of infrastructure for high-dollar gated communities, and never said anything about Northerners. He told Lam bert not to twist his words. Be cautious about the lying, Johnson said. Under what purview would you point your finger at me and tell me to be cautious? Lambert asked Johnson Johnson said it is not just Northerners who move into the high-dollar communities. Lambert said there are philosophical differences as to what fostering and promoting eco nomic development is. He said the IDAs job is to create job diversity, and there is no threat of gated communities popping up here. Lambert said Johnson has hinted at criminal activity re garding the IDA but has never specifically said what it is. Johnson said the auditor generals report showed the IDA skated State Statutes under the guidelines of fostering economic development. Johnson then renewed his hopes for a federal grand jury to look into the failure of the BOCCs oversight of the IDA board and the actions of the IDA. Lambert then asked Johnson to put his allegations in writing so everyone can know what they are. Citizen Frank Kirkland told the board he felt Witschonke was looking out for the best interest of the public. Rhonda Cole said Donald Samuels and Witschonke were the only IDA members willing to ask difficult questions. She said she would like to know why other IDA members vote the way they do. Pam Bellflower said the com mission should evaluate all the members of the IDA like the board asked them to do, and not single out one member. Witschonke then addressed the boar,d but Knight told him to save anything regarding his defense for the proper time. He went on the say PFManufacturing, which is moving into the Commerce Park, started out as a generator manufacturing company and has morphed into something else. Witschonke said he has repeatedly asked to see a working generator but has never been provided with one. Gene Davis, a member of the IDA, told the commission the IDA puts up with the same thing every meeting after votes have STATE PARKContinued From 1A include St. Patricks Day 5K Run on March 22 at 5 p.m. at Gasparilla Island State Park in Estero; Tails and Trails 5K on March 29 at 9 a.m. at Lake Man atee State Park in Brad-enton; Fakahatchee Frenzy 5K Obstacle Run on April 5 at 10 a.m. at Fakahatchee Strand Pre-serve State Park in Copeland; and Spring Fling 5K on April 12 at 9 a.m. at Little Manatee River State Park in Wimauma.

According to the report, Johnson basically reiterated the information given by Deeson, and EDC business was not discussed between board mem bers. After Johnson talked to the investigator, he e-mailed County Manager Lex Albritton to find out what involvement his office had in filing the Sunshine Law complaint. Albritton re-plied the only involvement was filling the verbal public-records request for the video from IDA member Jim See. Five days after Menges conversation with Johnson, he received an e-mail from Kuhl-man in reference to Bill Lambert and the county attorney trying to frame IDA/EDC members Horst and Don on a trumped up Sunshine case. Menge stated he did not dis cuss any details of the investiga tion with Kuhlman, however he generated an e-mail with infor mation that was discussed with Johnson. In light of this e-mail, it ap pears Mr. Kuhlman utilized in formation discussed with Commissioner Johnson about an open and active investigation, Menge wrote. Menge stated the investiga tion was not compromised, but it does show information is being shared among a group of individuals actively engaged with the EDC/IDA. In light of the ongoing dis pute between multiple parties, I question the reason this com plaint was forwarded to the agency, Menge concluded. His report further noted he spent 20 hours on the investigation. IDA members were captured on security video holding a meeting about an active IDA project, which would constitute a violation of the Sunshine Law, the report states. Lambert then provided Menge with an excerpt of the statute he believed was violated. Menge later conducted a phone interview with Deeson, who confirmed he conducted in terviews in the County Commission chambers following a hearing regarding the release of Lamberts deposition. Deeson stated he is cur rently working a story involving improprieties of the Economic Development Council, accord ing to Menges report. Deeson acknowledged Samuels and Witschonke were present, but said they did not talk to each other about EDC business, Menge wrote. After reviewing the footage, Menge could not find Samuels and Witschonke conversing with each other. I found no evidence in the video that the two suspected board members engaged one an other, he wrote. Lacking any audio to the contrary, I find no evidence that the board mem bers engaged in activity covered under the Sunshine Law. In a letter to Menge concerning the investigation, Samuels said he felt it was a false com plaint and a conspiracy to have him removed from the board. A few days later, Menge was contacted by Commissioner Johnson, inquiring who to con tact in reference to a citizen complaint involving a mobile home. Menge then asked Johnson about the gathering in the Your Business Could Appear Here!Nancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce Daniels The Herald Advocate 773-3255www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com The Herald-AdvocateO ON NL LI IN NE E! !D Do on n t t W Wa ai it t O On n T Th he e P Po os st t O Of ff fi ic ce e T To o D De el li iv ve er rThe Herald-AdvocateR Re ec ce ei iv ve e y yo ou ur r p pa ap pe er r W We ed dn ne es sd da ay y N No o M Ma at tt te er r W Wh he er re e Y Yo ou u L Li iv ve e a at tw ww ww w. .T Th he eH He er ra al ld dA Ad dv vo oc ca at te e. .c co om m Subscription Rates$5 for 1 Month $19 for 6 Months $37 for 1 Year $70 for 2 YearsThe Herald-AdvocateHardee Countys Hometown CoverageSee Website For Details.

By REGGIE DESMET Sp ecial To The Herald-Advocate Three shots were heard to start the Cancer Survivor Parade on Feb. 14 at Pioneer Creek RV Resort. King Garry and Queen Diane Delves led the parade of survivor banner walkers, 39 golf carts, two horseless carriages, caregiver banner walkers, a scooter, and two bikes which were seen in a sea of pink and purple balloons. As the parade started, We Are The Champions was played as everyone took off for the ride around the park to spectator honor and applause. Garry Delves manned the equipment needed for this day. The 80-plus cancer symbol flags were staked outside of each and every one of the survivors homes, for everyone to salute their victories. Dick Johnson and his crew placed these flags for all to see. The survivors also signed a banner for the American Cancer Society, to be carried at parades. There also were 33 items donated from residents in the park to be sold in a Chinese Raffle. Those donating to this worthwhile cause were Sam and Laura Phillips, Willie Yoder, Terry Keinath, Magoo Kespersetz, Don Raveling, Terry Stamm, Sara Heller, Woody Balentine, John and Joann Harris, Ken Pauley, Mary Johnson, Janice Nicholson, Harry Baumann, Lynn Metherell, Barb Fallows, Bea Bement, Fran McIntire, John Forster, Pioneer Creek Quilters, Bob Conkle, Diane Cormier, Carol Susko, Janet Cady, Carolyn Hetzel and Mary Ann E mmelman. A word of appreciation was given to all for their donations displaying their talents. Fred Thompson donated a beautiful chair, with Sylvia Baker from Crystal Lake winning it. He is donating another chair per request of ACS Director Denise Benavides, for a raffle next year by the Cancer Society. The monies from the Chinese Raffle totaled $2,417, the chair $669, Cathy Renwicks angel pins $377 and a $100 personal donation for a grand total to the American Cancer Society of $3,563. Bingo, horseshoes and shuffleboard added their 50/50 donations to aid in the festivities of the day. A fellowship of cookies, donated by park residents, and punch was next, with Gerry Wilhelm as master of cere monies. She introduced speaker Benavides, who is the executive director for both the Hardee and Highlands units of the American Cancer Society. Benavides said without contributions, all the successes would never have been possible, including her own sons survival. After the raffle drawing, a total of 51 survivors gathered on stage in a Gift of Life display. Plans are already in the making for next season, Feb. 13, 2015, at 1 p.m. In the meantime, remember to participate in Wauchulas Relay For Life this April 26.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A TALKIN TURKEY H opefully, youve already brushed up on your turkey calling, cause spring gobbler season is here. Whether you prefer to use a mouth call, box call, slate or any combination, March means its time to talk turkey and I, for one, am in full turkey mode! And this Saturday is the big day! One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey. This unique bird is one of five subspecies of wild turkey in North America. The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and nowhere else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-state hunters. Theyre similar to the eastern subspecies (found in the Panhandle) but tend to be a bit smaller and typically are darker with less white barring on the primary flight feathers of their wings. The National Wild Turkey Federation and the state Fish & Wildlife Commission recognize any wild turkey harvested within or south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies. Eastern turkeys and hybrids are found north and west of these counties and into the Panhandle. The highly anticipated spring turkey season came in first south of State Road 70, and runs to April 6. In the rest of the state, it runs March 15 to April 20. In Holmes County, the season runs March 15-30. Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the daily bag limit is one. The season and possession limit on turkeys is two, except in Holmes County, where the season limit is one. Shooting hours on private lands are one-half hour before sunrise to sunset, but on Wildlife Management Areas, you must quit hunting at 1 p.m. To participate in spring turkey hunting, youll need a Florida hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan to pursue a gobbler on one of Floridas many WMAs, you also must purchase a management area permit. Happy hunting!

Until June 30, applications will be received by the Hardee Help Center from local folks who are in danger of becoming homeless due to their inability to pay their monthly rent. There are several steps to bec oming eligible for the grant the Help Center has received from the state Department of Children and Families. One main one is that the applicant must be a Hardee County resident and be either a U.S. citizen or have a permanent resi dency green card. Another is that a person or family must be in the extremely low income range, which is less than $11,850 for one, $13,550 for t wo, $15,250 for three, $16,900 for four, $18,250 for five, $19,650 for six, $21,000 for seven and $22,350 for an eight-person household. An application can be obtained at the Help Center, 713 E. Bay St., Wauchula, or by going to the website www.hardeehelpcenter.org. The completed appli cation must be brought to the center by the applicant and an appointment will be scheduled w ithin one week. At the interview, the applicant must provide identification, proof of income or loss of job, proof of assets (bank account, etc.), have a delinquency notice or other proof of economic hard ship, and show documentation of unexpected medical, car re pair or other bills that have caused hardship. The rent assistance program is not only for those with an eviction notice. It is also to prevent eviction from happening by avoiding late payments, ex plained Help Center specialist Lidenia Servin. It is, however, not for those who have already received some type of assistance through the Help Center within the last year or twice in two years, Servin said. Those who have lost a job or don t work regularly will be referred to Goodwill Manasota or Career Source for job applica tions. All applications must attend a 90-minute financial education class and be able to show plans for future financial management to avoid rent deficits. For more information, call 773-0034. Cant Pay Your Rent? C ollecting Q: I recently pur chased a Manophone, a type of spring-wound phonograph that was manufactured by the Music Master of Phonegraphs company, probably during the 1920s. I paid $400 and wonder if I over paid. I also need to find needles for the machine. Dan, Bethalto, Ill. A: I'm not familiar with your model, but spring-wound ma chines seem to be selling in the $300 to $500 range, depending on the make, model and condi tion. For needles, call the Needle Doctor at 800-229-0644. The steel Victrola needles are $6 per pack, plus handling and postage. Q: During the 1930s, when I was 6 or 7, my mom bought me a Shirley Temple pitcher. I still have it. What is it worth? Barbara, Alton, Ill. A: The cobalt-blue Shirley Temple pitchers were first manufactured by the Hazel Atlas glass company in 1934 and production continued for the next eight years. The pitcher was part of a three-piece set that consisted of the pitcher, a bowl and mug. The pitchers were sometimes given away as premiums in boxes of Wheaties and Bisquick. Your pitcher is probably worth about $75, assuming it is in good to excellent condition. In recent years, reproductions have been made, and if you find one in a shop or at an antiques mall that is cheaply priced and appears in pristine condition, jump on the good ship lollipop and sail away, because chances are it is a fake. Q: My late husband had a box of books that he had when he was a child. I am en closing a list and would like to know values. Lydia, Albuquerque, N.M. A: You have several excellent used-book dealers in your area, and I suggest you begin your search by contacting them. If you have a computer, you might ac cess www.abe.com. Type in the title and author of each book, and it will reveal dealers who have it for sale. Pay close attention to edition and condition. Since I noticed that several of the books you listed are Little Golden Books, I also might recommend you get a copy of "Collecting Little Golden Books" by Steve Santi (Krause Books). This reference features the current value of more than 4,500 titles. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

By Larry Cox This Sunday, March 16 M orning Worship Service 11:00 am & In Concert 2:00 pm New Hope Baptist Church www.newhopewauchula.org/browns 3:13c Gas Price Eas es Up 1 Cent Although gas prices havent spiked yet, they are still on the rise. Pump prices rose about three cents from last week nation wide, with southeastern states taking smaller hikes. Although we havent seen gas prices spike yet, motorists should still expect them to rise well into spring, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. At this point, there are several factors that have placed upward pressure on oil prices in addition to seasonal maintenance and jump in de mand. Last week, the market got some positive news that payrolls increased more than forecast for February. In addition, the cur rent geopolitical tensions in Russia have the market con cerned about a possible supply disruption at a time when fuel demand picks up globally. A barrel of oil closed Friday at 102.58 on the New York Mer cantile Exchange, one cent more than the week prior. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.49, three cents more than last week. Florida's average of $3.46 rose one cent from last week. Special STARS is looking for a few good softball players in Hardee County who would like to work with special athletes on a team. Special STARS provides sports and recreational services for children and adults with physical and mental disabilities. The athletes in Hardee County participate in bowling and track and field events, but this will be the first time for them to com pete in softball. The coed softball team will consist of at least three women and three men in the community playing on the field with four special athletes. A total of 15 members can be on the team. The partners in the community do not have to be experienced in softball, but must have a willing ness to teach the sport and play with the athletes with disabili ties. Sissy Camacho, of Wauchula, will be the coach for the team. Co-ed rules apply. Men will use a 12-inch ball and a wooden bat, while women will use an 11-inch ball and can use an aluminum bat. Helmets will be worn. Other rules will be handed out at practice. Practice will be from 5 to 7 p.m., tomorrow (Friday) and next Friday, March 21, at the softball fields at the Carlton Sports Complex in Wauchula, which is near the Hardee County Cattlemen's Arena on Civic Center Drive. T he team will prepare to play in the 15th annual Special STARS Softball Classic in Se bring on March 22 against five other teams in Highlands County. Trophies will be presented at the tournament for the top three teams. The players on the firstplace team will receive individual trophies and a free trip to watch the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball. There are no fees for the athletes. Shirts and equipment will be provided. Athletes can bring their own glove and bat if they prefer. Volunteers are also needed to work with some special athletes w ho are wanting to learn softball skills in order to be on a team in the future. These athletes will compete for medals at the tourney on March 22. They will be tested on batting, running, fielding and throwing. Anyone interested in playing on the team or volunteering can call Sissy Camacho at 863-5132067 or Special STARS Coordinator Cindy Marshall at 863-443-0438. Players are also encouraged to show up at the field on Friday for practice to sign up so shirts can be ordered.

By Healthy Exchanges DON'T JUST SIT THERE T here's some grim news for those of us who aren't active. A study out of Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago found that if we're over the age of 60, every hour in a day that we sit in creases our risk of becoming disabled by 46 percent. But it gets worse. Even if we're active at other times, it doesn't completely offset the results of ... sitting. No, the study didn't say that we definitely will become dis abled if we spend too much time sitting (that's a topic for other studies), but clearly the odds aren't in our favor. For the purposes of the study, researchers defined "disabled" as not being able to take care of our needs the activities of daily living, such as getting dressed. Most of the participants spent about nine hours a day sitting. The study looked at the level of moderate to vigorous activity. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevent ion, moderate exercise is effort rated as a 5 or 6 on a scale of 0 to 10. Vigorous exercise is a 7 or 8 on that scale. One minute of minutes of moderate activity. The study found that exercising for even 10 minutes at a time, for a total of 150 minutes a week, as well as doing musclestrengthening exercises two days a week, brings benefits. For even greater health benefits, researchers suggest upping the 2 1/2 hours a week to 5 hours. Muscle strengthening can include working with resistance bands, yoga and weight lifting. While those hours don't use up all the "sitting" time we also engage in, it does help to even the risk score with less sitting and more moving.

I loved her on "Home Improvement" and "The West Wing," but I haven't seen her in anything lately. Joy T., via email A: Everyone's favorite TV mom, Patricia has been easing back into acting now that her children are off to college. I spoke with her recently to dis cuss a cause that is close to her heart: bringing awareness to rare diseases. In 2005, Patri cia lost her fa ther to progressive supranuclear palsy, a neurodegener ative brain disease that has no known cause, treatment or cure. Now she is doing all she can to raise awareness of the dis ease and money toward finding the cure, partnering with the National Organization of Rare Disorders. (Go to psp.org for more info.) In regard to acting, Patricia is ready to jump back in with both feet. She told me: "I've started doing theater again. I've done three Hallmark movies in the last year, and that's been good for me, to have the chance to get in front of a camera and feel comfortable again. I'm coming around to where I'm starting to feel like, 'Oh yeah, now I re member why I liked this.' My kids are doing really well, so I feel good about [my choice to step back from acting]. I'm very lucky, and I've been really blessed." Q: I read that Amy Poehler is going to be in another NBC comedy. If that's true, what will happen with "Parks and Rec"? George D., Harrisburg, Pa. A: Don't' worry: Amy isn't leaving "Parks and Rec." She'll be producing a yet-untitled comedy for the Peacock Network that will star Natasha Lyonne ("Or ange Is the New Black") and will center on Natasha's character, who works as an aide to a group of senior citizens while she tries to find herself. Q: I read some time ago that Morgan Freeman had di vorced his wife in order to marry his step-granddaughter. Is this true? Pauline L., via email A: This was just another horri ble Hollywood rumor, which as a rule I stay away from, but this rumor is one that needs to be cleared up. The answer is a re sounding no, with Morgan re leasing this statement: "The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relation ship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers." Q: Will "Dracula" be back for a second season? Richard R., via email A: As of this writing, NBC has not announced a renewal deci sion. If the show does get re newed, then I will start watching it. I've been disappointed so often in the past, where I get involved with a show only for it to be canceled "FlashForward," "The Gates," "GCB" that I am now more cautious about com mitting to a new series.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7B C C e e l l e e b b r r a a t t e e P P e e a a n n u u t t s s ! March is National Peanut m onth! It's time to celebrate America's most popular nut. The peanut plant probably originated in South America. Eu ropean explorers first discovered peanuts in Brazil. Tribes in central Brazil also ground peanuts with maize to make a drink. Peanuts were growing as far north as Mexico when the Spanish began their exploration of the New World. The explorers took peanuts back to Spain, and from there traders and explorers spread them to Asia and Africa. Africans were the first people to introduce peanuts to North America beginning in the 1700s. Peanuts were grown in Vir ginia in the 1800s as a commercial crop, and used mainly for oil, food and as a cocoa substi tute. At this time, peanuts were regarded as a food for livestock and the poor, and were consid ered difficult to grow and har vest. Peanuts became prominent after the Civil War when Union soldiers found they liked them and took them home. Both armies subsisted on this highprotein food source. Their popularity grew in the late 1800s when PT Barnum's circus wag ons traveled across the country and vendors called out, "Hot roasted peanuts!" to the crowds. Peanuts also became popular at baseball games. In the early 1900s, peanuts be came a significant agricultural crop when the boll weevil threat ened the South's cotton crop. Following the suggestions of noted scientist Dr. George Wash ington Carver, peanuts served as an effective commercial crop and, for a time, rivaled the position of cotton in the South. There is evidence that ancient South American Inca Indians were the first to grind peanuts to make peanut butter. In the United States, Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (of cereal fame) invented a ver sion of peanut butter in 1895. Peanut butter was first intro duced at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904. It is believed that the U.S. Army popularized the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, using them for sustenance during maneuvers in World War II. Americans average more than six pounds of peanut products each year. Peanut butter accounts for about half that total with Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis $850 million in retail sales each year. Despite the fact that peanuts are high in fat, they are still an excellent food choice because they provide a variety of important nutrients. Peanuts contain protein, fiber and healthy mo nounsaturated and polyunsatu rated fats, all of which improve health and lower the risk of chronic disease. A study of more than 15,000 peanut consumers determined that they had higher levels of vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, magnesium, zinc, iron, calcium and dietary fiber than people who did not eat peanuts. These nutrients are needed by the body to function properly. Peanuts play a role in lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and improving longevity and performance. Peanuts help pre vent chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and can cer. Studies have shown they can decrease lipid levels and may reduce inflammation, a cause of chronic disease. Researchers also have found that mortality de creases as the frequency of eat ing nuts like peanuts increases. In addition to all of these won derful benefits, peanuts are af fordable and easy to find, making them a great addition to a nutritious diet. This recipe for Spicy Peanut-Crusted Chicken adds a healthy crunch to bone less, skinless chicken breasts or thighs. SPICY PEANUT-CRUSTED CHICKEN 1/2 cup flour 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning 1 tablespoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/2 cup prepared mustard 2 tablespoons honey 2 cups dry roasted peanuts, finely chopped 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs, or a combi nation of both 2 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons olive oil 1. In a pie pan or shallow bowl, combine flour, 1/2 table spoon poultry seasoning, and a 1/2 teaspoon each of garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper; mix well. In a second dish, combine mustard and honey with remaining 1/2 tea spoons of garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper. 2. Place the chopped peanuts in a third dish. Dip each piece of chicken in the flour mixture, then in the honey-mustard mixture, and finally in the peanuts to coat. 3. Heat butter and the olive oil in a 10to 12-inch skillet; until butter is melted and foamy. Add the chicken and cook over medium-low heat until cooked through and golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Makes 4 servings.

The first year of TrophyCatch ended, and the awards were all given out, but the challenge is still on for year two. TrophyCatch re wards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing largemouth bass heavier than eight pounds in Florida. Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J., earned the TrophyCatch Cham pionship ring for the first season. It was presented at Bass Pro Shops in Orlando in January. Williams winning catch was a 13-pound, 14ounce largemouth from Rodman Reservoir. He also earned a free ($500 value) fiberglass replica of his catch and other awards totaling approximately $1,000. A $10,000 check was handed to Peter Perez at a special ceremony at West Lake Tohopekaliga. Perez caught the largest TrophyCatch-verified bass from Osceola County to win the prize. He caught his winning 12-pound, three-ounce bass last March in a neighborhood pond on a Rat-L-Trap. The winner of the 2013 Phoenix 619 bass boat, powered by Mercury, was surprised angler Frank Ay. His prize was presented to him following a club tournament on Lake Okeechobee. Ay won the $40,000 grand prize via a random drawing from among 4,000 an glers who registered for TrophyCatch the first season. For the second year of this program, documenting has gotten simpler. Start with a free registration at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, and you will be entered to win a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury and equipped with a PowerPole. This year the only required photo is one of the entire bass (head to tail) on a scale, with the weight vis ible. Always attempt to get that shot, but if it isnt perfect, supple ment it with a close-up of the scale, a photo of the entire fish on a bumpboard or tape measure, and maybe even a shot of the basss girth. The second year is off to a great start, with 63 Lunker entries (8-9.9 pounds) and 26 Trophy Club (10-12.9 pounds) recorded in less than the first four months, and more than twice as many entries in December 2013 compared with December 2012. The peak season is still in front of us, and FWC biologists have worked to narrow down a list of top sites to recommend to bass an glers for 2014 based on data from anglers, scientific sampling and an understanding of habitat trends and local conditions. miles) Now that you have the facts, make sure you have a valid license, register at TrophyCatchFlorida.com, bring a camera and scale to weigh your catch, and start exploring some of the best bass fishing in the world. Fish Busters By Bob WattendorfFlorida Fish & Wildlife Commission Inside OutBy Chip Ballard YOU GOTTA START SOMEWHERE As long ago as I can remember, certainly since third grade when I heard for the first time Elvis Presley singing Thats All Right, Mama on one of those little yellow-labeled 45 rpm SUN records, I have wanted to sing and play guitar. Throughout my childhood, teenage and early adult years the I was too shy to sing anywhere else. Time did not diminish the desire. If anything the passing years seemed to intensify it. At 31 I decided it was now or never. If I put it off much longer, I might never get to it. I dragged out of my bedroom closet an old Truetone guitar Id bought as a child for $7 and promptly abandoned because the raucous shrieks it emitted did not remotely resemble any of the sounds Elvis made. I bought some songbooks and learned a few chords. I practiced religiously, at least two hours every evening and usually more. For the first two weeks I believed I had some sort of neurological or muscular disorder. I knew where I wanted my fingers to go, on which strings in which frets, but the fingers absolutely refused to go where my mind told them. Finally, after great aggravation and a real desire to smash the confounded instrument into splinters, I managed to rattle through G, C and D. By now the mental frustration had given way to physical pain as the steel strings began to bite and cut into my fingertips so badly they would sometimes bleed. I gritted my teeth and before too long I could stumble through a few chords without feeling spastic. But I soon learned that making the right fingerings and pressing the strings down hard enough onto the fret to make a clear chord were different issues, especially on that old Truetone whose neck was crooked as sin, and on which the strings hovered up almost half an inch above the frets. I invested in a better guitar and, despite despair and a solid be lief I was wasting my time, I hung on and kept at it. Then, at long last, the day came that after an hour or two of G, C and D-ing, I dis covered not only was there no blood splattered across the pages of my songbooks, but also that my fingertips were not burning as much as usual. Close examination of my fingertips revealed that the bites and bruises had morphed into calluses. I became so excited I banged away for another hour, at the end of which I could strum G, C and D chords with every note, six times out of 10, ringing true! Not that I was ready for Carnegie Hall, but it was a beginning. There are dozens of songs you can play with three chords. Now that Id mastered those, I began to sing along with my strumming, an endeavor that started cats yowling and dogs howling for blocks around. Although Id been told the quality of my voice was good, I was still often picking sour notes, which my pitch automatically fol lowed, and Id cringe as soon as I heard myself go off key. I wanted to quit, hang it up, throw in the towel. But fate inter vened and I met a lady who sang in a band and also taught voice. We became friends and sometimes sang together. When she told me I did not know how to breathe, I thought she was joking, but she convinced me it was true and commenced to show me how it was done. Slowly, gradually, I began to notice I was improving. New peo ple came into my life, friends who were better pickers than I, and every time I played with them I learned a little more. I still dont know much, but a year after dragging that old True tone out of the closet and getting serious with it, I formed my own little band and played weekends at honky-tonks all over Manatee County, as well as occasional weddings and parties. While Ive yet to pose any threat to the reputation Elvis estab lished recording for SUN Studios, I still enjoy making music and have never for a moment regretted the aggravation and frustration, the burning and bleeding fingertips it took to learn those first three chords.

D The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, March 13, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee girls softball team added a trio of victories last week. The girls downed Frostproof, DeSoto and Sebring to up their season record to 6-2. This week, the only action is in the Sarasota Spring Slam Tournament Friday and Saturday. Next week includes Fri day games at Lakeland. The following week is a Monday home game against Okeechobee, Tuesday at Sebring and Friday at Lemon Bay to finish up March. Hardee 8, Frostproof 1 Hardee began last week with a trip to Frostproof, with Sara Welch starting on the mound. The Lady Cats left Morgan Walters, Kim Derringer and Makayla Deuberry stranded in the first inning. Frostproof left one runner on the base paths. Hardee got on the board in the top of the second inning. Karlee Henderson doubled and continued on a stolen base and error on a Senida Garcia hit. Garcia kept running and scored on a Hannah Carlton hit. Welch struck out two Lady Bulldogs and got a fly-out leaving one runner who had beat out a bunt. Deuberry and Kendall Gough were left aboard in the top of the third. Frostproof picked up its only tally on a single and a double. It was 2-1. Hardee widened that lead in the top of the fourth, when Garcia singled to left, advanced on a Carlton hit and came home on an error on a Walters hit. Frostproof left one on base. Neither team scored in the fifth. In the sixth, the Lady Cats plated a pair of runners. Jakaysha Lindsey was safe and stole second. Garcia doubled and both came in on a Carlton hit. It was 5-1. Frostproof left some runners aboard in the next three at-bats. In the top of the seventh, Hardee padded its lead with three more runs. Gough was safe on a fielders choice, Addison Aubry singled and Henderson walked. Aided by a Lindsey double, the first three runners came home to make the final score 8-1. Hardee 7, DeSoto 4 Last Tuesday evening, Hardee hosted district rival DeSoto in a 7-4 victory with Alex Ull rich on the mound. The Lady Bulldogs went down in order in the top of the first and Hardee got its first tally. Walters was safe on a fielders c hoice which took out Garcia, who had walked. Derringer walked and Gough singled to score Walters. Two Bulldogs were left on base in the top of the second and Hardee added a run. With two down Garcia and Carlton both walked. Garcia raced home on a Walters hit. It was 2-0. DeSoto evened the score with a pair of runs in the top of the third on a single, double and pair of errors. Hardee answered with four runs to up the score to 6-2. Gough opened with a triple to deep center. With one down,Ull rich singled Gough home. Ull rich worked her way around the bases and came in on a Henderson hit Henderson got to third but was out coming home on a fielders choice. Lindsey and Garcia both walked and scored before the third out. The Lady Dawgs gained two runs in the top of the fourth on walks, error and a Brown triple. Hardee went down in order. While DeSoto was unable to score again, Hardee added a final score in the home half of the fifth. Henderson singled, went to second on an error on a Caryssa Johnson hit and came in on a Garcia sacrifice, making the final score 7-4. Hardee 15, Sebring 0 The Lady Wildcats finished a hectic week with a shutout of district rival Sebring on the Lady Cat field. Henderson recorded three strikeouts in a game that went only three in nings before ending on the 10run mercy rule. Hardee put a three-spot in the first inning. With two away, Walters and Gough were both safe on errors. When Derringer was also safe on an error, Wal ters came home. A Hender-son hit to right center brought an other runner home and an error on an Ullrich hit brought in the third tally of the inning. In the second inning, Hardee batted around, sending a dozen girls to the plate and bringing eight of them home. Johnson, Garcia, Walters, Gough, Derringer, Henderson, Ullrich and Deuberry circled the bases to make it 11-0. The Lady Cats added the final four runs in the home half of the third. With two down, Derringer, Henderson and Ullrich all singled. Deuberry drew a walk and raced home on a Johnson hit to end the game 15-0.

LifeLinks ... B y Carolyn Hendry Wyatt Extension Agent DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH A LZHEIMERS DISEASE? Alzheimers disease affects nearly half of North Americans by age 85. According to the American Academy of Neurology, unless preventive measures are developed, Alzheimers rates will nearly triple over the next four decades. Worldwide, Alzheimers rates will affect 100 million people by 2050. Scientific studies suggest that preventive strategies are now fea sible through heart-healthy eating and exercise. Studies suggest that the same foods that are beneficial for the heart are also healthful for the brain and may reduce the risk of Alzheimers disease. The seven dietary principles to reduce the risk of Alzheimers disease were prepared for presentation at the International Conference on Nutrition and the Brain in Washington, D.C. in July 2013. They are as follows: 1. Minimize your intake of saturated fats and trans fats. Saturated fat is found primarily in dairy products, meats and certain oils (coconut and palm oils). Trans fats are found in many snack pastries and fried foods, and are listed on labels as partially hydrogenated oils. 2. Vegetables, legumes (beans, peas and lentils), fruits and whole grains should be the primary staples of the diet. 3. One ounce of nuts or seeds (one small handful) daily provides a healthful source of Vitamin E. 4. A reliable source of Vitamin B12, such as fortified foods or a supplement providing at least the recommended daily allowance (2.4 mcg per day for adults) should be part of your daily diet. 5. When selecting multiple vitamins, choose those without iron and copper, and consume iron supplements only when directed by your physician. 6. While aluminums role in Alzheimers disease remains a matter of investigation, it is prudent to avoid the use of cookware, antacids, baking powder or other products that contribute dietary aluminum. 7. Include aerobic exercise in your routine, equivalent to 40 minutes of brisk walking three times per week. While treatment for the disease remains unsatisfactory, scientific studies suggest that these preventive strategies are now feasible and may reduce the risk by half or more. As Alzheimers rates and medical costs continue to climb, perhaps these simple changes to diet and lifestyle may help in preventing cognitive problems.

2D The Herald-Advocate, March 13, 2014 Hardee Living This week in history, as re s earched from the archival pages of The Florida Ad-vo cate, the Hardee County Herald and The Herald-Ad-vocate . 75 YEARS AGO A large number of visitors attended the open house of the Wauchula Infirmary on last Friday as the building was opened for inspection by Dr. and Mrs. A.A. Poucher. More than 300 took advantage of the opportu nity to view the modern and newly equipped quarters of the infirmary plant. During the week two slots machines were seized at the County Line Liquor Store by Constable E.E. Fussell of the Bowling Green district. The ma chines were brought to the Sher iffs Office where they now remain pending Replevin pro ceedings which have been brought by the owners. H.L. Miller, Hardee county agent and commander of Herger Williams Post No. 2, American Legion, was elected district vice-commander of the Legion at the Sixth District Conference in Sarasota Sunday. The Senior Class of the high school is working with their Shirt Sleeves, annual play which will be presented at the City Auditorium, Friday, March 24. 50 YEARS AGO A delegation of school bus drivers asked the School Board for relief Tuesday morning from the requirement that they furnish their own transportation to the parking places of their buses. Until this year, drivers were per mitted to keep the buses at their homes overnight. Don Poucher, son of Dr. and Mrs. A.A. Poucher of Wauchula, received a first-place award for academic excellence and participation in broadcast media operations at the Florida Association of Broadcasters banquet this week at the Univer sity of Florida. Wauchulas shrunken police force, down to three from a normal five-man department, was granted temporary extra pay Monday night. The City Council voted each policeman a temporary $25 a month pay raise. Mr. and Mrs. Roger Humble to Bowling Green are parents of a five-pound 12-1/2-ounce daughter, Sharon Lee, born March 10 at the Palmetto Medical Clinic. 25 YEARS AGO A Hardee Senior High School 11th grader spent a long and chilly night locked inside a restroom at the school. Stacy J. Powell, daughter of John and Bonnie Powell, left her rural Bowling Green home at around 10 a.m. Saturday to go job hunting. She stopped at the school at about 1 p.m. to use a phone, but when the line was busy she went to the restroom, the captain said. At the time, band members were leaving on a trip. The bath rooms were open, he said, but when the band students were accounted for someone locked the bathroom doors. Several students at Hardee Junior High School participated in unusual behavior Monday and disturbed many other stu dents in the area. According to Lee Burns, superintendent of schools, there were five girls from seventh and eighth grades who were involved with some kind of a game or ritual in the girls locker room next to the boiler room on the north cam pus. Evelyn Bessent has something to smile about. It is not often that a young woman from Hardee County receives an athletic scholarship to attend college. Bessent an 18-year-old senior at Hardee Senior High, received a two-year scholarship because of her athletic ability in girls basketball. Superintendent Lee Burns said that several positions are open in Hardee County School System and all are being advertised statewide. David Bowden, principal at Hardee Senior High, has submitted his resignation. Also being advertised is position as principal at Hardee Junior High. Hugh Bradley, director of finance for the school system, turned in his resignation and worked until the end of Febru ary. 10 YEARS AGO In an ongoing crackdown on alleged drug dealing within its borders, the Bowling Green Police Department has conducted raids on two homes, arresting three suspects and confiscating large quantities of narcotics.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3D Fort Green News By R illa Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! O nce I get used to this time I will like it, but the first morning is bad! Only one person that I know of came to church think ing they were in time for Sunday School. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Edna Furtah. She made her final journey and the funeral will be today (Thursday). I did not know that Ma Smith had nine children. That is quite an accomplishment this day and time considering they all turned out good. She and her husband must have been super parents. I was also told that the Green family had nine children and they all turned out good. They probably all grew up in the age where the Bible and prayer were in school and teachers had authority to discipline, if necessary. I think we would call that the good ol days. Norma Alejandro was in the hospital overnight and is still feeling bad. She will have to have more tests. Essie Deer, Sharon Lynn, Beth Sasser, Walter Owens, Billy Porter, Pauline Walker and Tara McGaughey are all on our prayer list. Tara had a skin cancer removed from her face. Please pray for all of these and others you may know about. Cline and Margie Albritton were Atlanta visitors last week. They drove up because of Alli son Albritton being so sick. He was in the VA Hospital in Atlanta and Margie said it was big, taking up several city blocks. Allison made his final journey early Wednesday morning and will be buried in Williston, where his wife is buried. Our sympathy is with all the family. There were six Albritton boys but only two are left, Gene and Cline. Avie and Allen Eures along with Kaylee Hogenauer and An drea Crawford enjoyed the weekend at Epcot, arriving Friday afternoon. Saturday, Teresa and Tim Rosenburg and Frieda Crawford joined them for a funfilled day. Jessica Gill became the bride of Phil Ruiz on March 1 at the First United Methodist Church in Dunedin. On Feb. 28, Cindy and Joyce Coker, Lauren, Emmalyn and Tanner Chester drove to Clear water to get ready for Jessicas wedding. Connie and Amber Coke r came a short time later in the afternoon bringing Danny Coker, West Chester and Mason Waters, getting them to the destination in time for the wedding rehearsal. Later, Roc-ky, Angie and Addie Sonnier arrived at Jessicas home for the rehearsal supper. There were about 25 for the supper. The out-of-town guests stayed at a hotel so everyone would be ready for the 10 a.m. wedding on March 1. After the wedding everyone went to the East Lake Country Club on Woodlands Parkway in Oldsmar to celebrate. After the DJ presented the bride and groom and wedding party, everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner and wedding cake! Jessica and Phil left for a week in the Florida Keys for their honeymoon. Amy, Daniel, Abby and Trenton Duke attended the wedding. Jean Sadler, Pat Albritton and Aubrey Bragg also attended the wedding. I feel sure all the Hardee people used their GPS or had good directions to navigate! Jessica is the daughter of Paul Gill, who used to live in Wauchula. His parents lived here on Inglis Way but they both have been gone a long time. Jessica was in a bad wreck some years back and has made a re markable recovery by the grace of God. Elizabeth Powell and friends are giving a baby shower for Kara Spencer this Friday night at 6:30 in the Fellowship Hall. It will be a boy! This Sunday is the annual OTaters immediately following morning services. April 5 will be the rib fest; a youth fundraiser and April 12 will be a workday at the Methodist Cemetery. People need to realize this cemetery is private and people should not put their personal debris on the burn pile. Recently someone put their yard trimmings and this just makes more work for the committee. If you havent been in an or ange grove recently, you need to. The orange blossoms smell wonderful. It would be great if someone could capture the fragrance so you could have it year-round. Please pray for one another and our nation. Bethany Minnie Mouse P arty Marks 3rd Birthday Bethany Makayla Darty, the daughter of James and Elizabeth Darty of Zolfo Springs, turned 3 years old on Feb. 28. She celebrated the occasion with a birthday party at Paynes Creek Historic State Park in Bowling Green on Sunday, March 2. Theme for the event Minnie Mouse. Guests were served grilled chicken, hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, green beans, boiled peanuts and a Minnie Mouse cake baked by Mom. Joining in on the fun were great-grandparents Clarence and Irma Darty; grandparents Roger and Kim Darty and grandmother Beverly Wills; uncle and aunt Shawn and Jessica Darty; cousins Jona-than, Breanna, Kaylee, Lindsey and Ryan; and sisters and brothers Nikki, Amy, Cassy, James and Dustin.

All rights reserved Good Housekeeping I sometimes wonder where did the cave man move to when he moved out of his cave? About the only fair thing left in the world today is the weather, and it is getting where you cannot depend on that anymore. Concerning life, when we are young life is like sitting down to a gigantic smorgasbord of seafood, but when we are old we do not eat because we are fed up. Never wallow in anothers misery for certainly your turn will come. In general the lawless among us live for the moment and not for the future. How many times have you ever heard Now if that aint so, then there aint no cow in Texas. But brothers and sisters, I am here to tell you this idea that there is no cow in Texas, my mother-in-law Harpoon dispels that myth. Truly it has been said in todays world that good women are hard to find and bad ones are hard to get rid of. But I ask, if you were able to sort out a good woman among the masses, where in the world would you find a good man to go with her? Gentlemen who are old like myself who are looking for the love of our lives, hurry things along, pal, because we might be a little short on time. Concerning money, it can make you or break you. I might get a little aggravated with Sugar Possum sometimes, but I know one thing, she sure knows how to cook a TV dinner. I wonder how it would go over if her boyfriend promised her the moon, and he was an astronaut slated for a lunar landing the next day, Hard to say, huh? At my so-called best friend Scissorbills funeral, he winked at my wife and she fell for him. What is confidence? It is something when misinterpreted can cause its bearer a big slice of trouble.

DONOHUE: Two of my children, a boy in the second grade and a girl in kindergarten, have been scratching their behinds for a week. I mentioned this to my neighbor, and she said they probably have pinworms. That made me sick to my stomach. How do I know for sure? If they have them, where did they come from? I have two other children. Should they, my husband and I also be treated? I am really upset. A.D. worms are easily treated. They're harmless and don't indicate a lack of cleanliness in your home. They're found worldwide, and no stratum of society is immune to infection with them. Transmission takes place when pinworm eggs find their way into another person's mouth. Scratching embeds eggs under the fingernails. The majority of infections take place when an adult or child with pinworm eggs under his or her nails or on his or her hands touches another, and that person then transfers them to the mouth. In the digestive tract, an adult pinworm emerges in a month to six weeks. Infected people perpetuate the cycle of in fection in their own bodies by transmitting eggs to their mouths. The mature female pinworm travels down the digestive tract at night and deposits her eggs at or just outside the anus. A female lays more than 11,000 eggs. They're the cause of intense itching. The diagnosis is made by find ing the worm or its eggs. The best time to look is first thing in the morning, be fore the child has washed. A pinworm looks like a thin, white thread, about four-tenths of an inch (1 cm) long. Make the search with a flashlight and a magnifying glass. Scotch tape, fixed to a tongue depressor or a similar ob ject and pressed against the skin near the anus, traps eggs, which the doctor can see with a microscope. The tape is fixed to the de pressor with the sticky side on the outside. The ends of the tape are folded over to adhere to the two sides of the depressor. Mebendazole and albendazole do a good job in getting rid of the worms. All family members should be treated. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My doctor has me on a calcium tablet because I'm nearing the osteoporosis line. I'm 63 and never have taken any kind of medicine. I hate to break my record. Can't I get enough calcium from foods to reach my cal cium goal? Let me know what foods, please. B.A. enough calcium from foods, and it's as good a way, if not better, of get ting that mineral than are tablets and pills. yogurt has 413 mg; 8 ounces of low fat milk, 300 mg; 6 ounces of cal cium-fortified orange juice, 378 mg; 3 ounces of canned sardines, 324 mg; 1.5 ounces of cheddar cheese, 306 mg; 1 cup of cottage cheese, 138 to 206 mg. A woman of your age needs about 1,200 mg of calcium a day. Most bookstores have small books with the nutritional con tent of foods, and they aren't expensive. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

The Hardee JV boys baseball team lost at DeSoto last Tuesday when time was called in the fifth inning. The Thursday game was cancelled because of heavy rain all day. It was the fourth cancellation for the junior boys this season. They have only played four games. The junior Cats are scheduled to play at home twice this week, Monday the opponent was Sebring. Today (Thursday) it is p.m. start instead of 6 p.m. Next weeks only game is at Avon Park on Tuesday. Play resumes after Spring Break with a trip to Avon Park. In last weeks action at DeSoto, Hardee opened with a trio of tallies in the first inning. With one down, Adam Salas and Brandon Franks both drew walks. Russell Weems doubled to left field to score both teammates. A long single by Kyle Choate brought Weems home and Hardee led 3-0. The junior Bulldogs got one run in the home half of the first on a walk, stolen base, sacrifice and passed ball. Wildcat pitcher Aaron Harrison got his first of five strikeouts in stopping the threat. The junior Cats added an in surance run in the top of the sec ond. Carlos Camacho singled and raced home on an error on a Franks hit. It was 4-1. DeSoto clawed its way back with a run in the second inning, three in the third and two more in the fourth. When Hardee left two aboard in the top of the fifth, the game was called on the time limit, leaving Hardee on the low side of the 6-4 game.

(PINKSHEETS: BION), a cleantech company that utilizes patented technology to build environmentallyfriendly plants that convert biomass into urea fertilizer, announced today that it reached an agreement to purchase for $1 over 50 acres of land in Taylor County, FL from the Taylor County Development Authority (TCDA). Under the terms of the agreement, the TCDA will also furnish BioNitrogen with a $5 million loan to be used for plant engineering and site development work to be repaid upon the tax free bond closing of the plant. This is one of several planned facilities in the State of Florida and the southeast regional footprint for BioNitrogen. Located in Perry, FL, this location is ideal for a BioNitrogen plant, because it is well located for feedstock and comes equipped with access to rail services, trucking and vehicular transportation, electricity, water, natural gas and telecom services. Closing of the land pur chase and loan is expected to occur as soon as practical. As part of the agreement, BioNitrogen agrees to construct a plant with an investment in excess of $200 million and provide a minimum of 45 direct full-time employees in Taylor County. The plant will produce approximately 200,000 tons per year of urea fertilizer and use local solid waste biomass such as wood waste as its feedstock. Closing of the bond and funding for this plant is expected to occur within 180 days, subject to the timing of approvals and government commitments. "On behalf of the Taylor County Development Authority and Taylor county citizens, we look forward to working closely with the BioNitrogen management as they begin construction of the fertilizer plant. Not only will the plant bring excellent, high paying jobs to Taylor, but the plant builds on the County's development plan designed to bring robust manufacturing industry to the County. The construction of this new environmentally friendly fertilizer plant in Perry is an exciting development and a great opportunity for our local partners and com munity," said Jim Bassett, Chairman of the Taylor Economic Development Council. It will allow us to utilize our local technical centers, including the local award-wining institute for millwright and welding, and our local work training programs. We are very excited to have secured this important property. This is a critical development for BioNitrogen and provides us with the land and access to resources we need as an initial step in committing to build a plant in Taylor County, said Bryan Kornegay Jr., President and CFO of BioNitrogen. Funding from the Taylor County Development Authority is central to the success of the overall plant construction project and we are pleased to partner with it. The County has done a tremendous job of providing inducements and laying the path forward for state grants and construction of a plant in this County, as well as creating a long term partnership with us. The strong wood basket for feedstock, local technical centers for an educated workforce and excellent access to rail and utilities with minimal tie-in or up front capital costs provide huge time and cost incentives for us at this site, said Ernie Iznaga, VP Operations. The economic development rate offered by Duke Energy is an aggressive recruitment tool that is a real game-changer for energy intensive businesses like BioNitrogen, said Jeremy Susac, former head of Floridas energy office and an energy attorney with Real Energy & Environment Strategies based in Tallahassee, Florida. In addition to negotiations in Taylor County, BioNitrogen is continuing its negotiations in Florida and elsewhere to construct similar facilities with similar economic impact. Further details on other sites are forthcoming. Todays news in Taylor County is great news and enables BioNitrogen to take one step closer to doing business in Florida. Simply stated, we are thrilled to be working on sites in Florida served by world class utilities companies. The Florida utilities at Taylor and other sites have taken a very proactive approach to keep us focused on doing business in the State of Florida and we look forward to finalizing interconnection agreements with them shortly, once the states economic de velopment office carries through with its incentive packages, said Bryan Kornegay Jr. But, for the sake of clarity, we havent lost focus on promising sites in other states most notably Louisiana. 3:13c

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9D By MORGAN CREWS Sp ecial To The Herald-Advocate Q: What is your name? A: Floyd Kenneth DeVane. Q: When were you born? A: July 4, 1930. Q: Where were you born? A: Fort Meade. Q: Where do you live now? A: Fort Meade. Q: What did you enjoy doing when you were my age? A: Playing football and fishing in phosphate pits. Q: What schools did you attend? A: For first grade I attended a little country school called Welcome, then transferred to Fort Meade Elementary School up until sixth grade. Then I went to Fort Meade Middle School for three years, and for my last four years of school I went to Fort Meade High School. Q: From what you see, how are the students different now than they were when you were in school? A: Now there is a lot less discipline in schools, and most kids are smarter than we were when we went to school. Q: Was there a test you had to take and pass to get promoted to the next grade level? If so, what was it called? A: There was not a real test we had to take and pass; our report cards told whether we passed or not. Q: When did you get married? A: April Fools Day in 1950. Q: Who did you marry? A: Joyce Lavonne Noble. Q: Where did you get married? A: Her house, right outside of Fort Meade. Q: What was your first job? A: Working at Virginia Carolina Chemical, which is a phosphate mine. Q: Where was your first job? A: Polk County. Q: How long did you keep that job? I Bought Groves As I Could Afford One Or do you still have it today? A : I kept that job for five to six years and then went and worked at C. Wilson operating a dragline for one year. After that I went to a mining operation to train men to operate a total electric machine for nine years, then started in the fruit business and I have been in the fruit business ever since until I retired. I have been retired for about five years now. Q: Is there anything you would like to add? A: When I first started in the fruit business it was rough but it became easier financially. In the late s things became easier and better as time went on. I kept buying groves as I found one that I could afford. In the end we wound up with several acres of citrus groves. I am one of nine children; I have three brothers and five sisters. We were all raised on a small truck farm in Fort Meade. My wife, on the other hand, was raised in Chicago. She is an only child. She moved to Fort Meade in 1945. Back Back In In Time Time COURTESY PHOTO F loyd DeVane with article author Morgan Crews.

March 13, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11 D DEAR PAW'S CORNER: O ur dog "Bailey" is about a year and a half old, and he has always gotten very excited around the kids and guests, and jumps up to paw at them. The kids love to play with him, which encourages him to jump up more. He is otherwise very lovable. How can I stop this be havior? Sign me "Muddy Shirt" in Madison, Wis. DEAR MUDDY SHIRT: Jumping up is a very common behavior in dogs. The key here is to teach Bailey that it isn't ac ceptable. How? Well, yelling or getting excited yourself when Bailey jumps up will likely do nothing, or even make the problem worse. Pushing Bailey away or swatting his nose isn't helpful, either. Instead, try the "I'm not interacting with you" method. When Bailey starts to jump up (such as when you come home) stay calm, but look away and fold your arms. Say "off!" in a strong but calm voice. Turn your back on him if need be. Now this is important as soon as Bailey stops the behav ior, reward him by looking at him and calmly petting him. If he starts to jump again (and he will), repeat the steps. Basic obedience training plays a key role here. Every day, teach Bailey to sit, stay, lie down, come and heel. When he begins to jump or get hyper, use the non-interaction method, and as soon as he stops jumping, say "sit." When he obeys you, re ward him with calm petting. What you're teaching Bailey is that he will not get the attention he craves if he behaves a certain way (jumping). Make sure to teach your kids to do the same. There are lots of resources and methods to address jumping up, such as the ASPCA's pet-care section. Keep researching, or contact a professional trainer to help. Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. Paw s Corner By Sam Mazzotta By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee JV softball team is 4-0 in recent games. Theyve pocketed wins over Lemon Bay, Frostproof, DeSoto and Sebring in the past four game, upping their record to 53. A fter a bye week, next on the schedule for the JV girls are a trip to Lakeland on Mar. 21, a home game against Okeechobee on Mar. 24, a trip to Sebring on Mar. 25 and a visit from Lemon Bay on Mar. 28. Hardee 13, Lemon Bay 1 Backtracking to Feb. 28, the girls played at Lemon Bay in a 13-1 win. Neither squad was able to score in the first inning, but Hardee plated six runs in the second inning. Arianna Ramos began it with a single and Kourt ney Henderson followed with a double. With one away, Jaque line McGhee drew a walk and Julia Figueroa cleared the bases with a triple to right center. With two down, Tiffany Flo res singled and Shayna Harned doubled. A Gabby Allen single before the third out, brought in Harned with the fifth run of the inning. There was no scoring in the second inning. In the third, Hen derson opened with a single and Mara Goodwyn doubled. Both scored with help from McGhee and Alyssa Tatum. It was 8-0. In the top of the fourth, Hardee added five more scores. Harned, Allen and Anna Erekson all singled. When Henderson followed suit, the runners began crossing home plate, McGhee and Tatum drew walks. Flores and Harned both singled before the third out left Hardee up 13-0. Lemon Bay got its lone tally with a solo homer in the home half of the fourth inning, but it was too little, too late. Hardee won 13-0. Hardee 14, Frostproof 10 Hardees return encounter at Frostproof was more profitable. Losing 15-5 at home against the junior Lady Bulldogs on Feb. 6, Hardee took it to Frostproof in this Mar. 3 trip to Frostproof, coming home with a 14-10 win. The junior Lady Wildcats broke out of the gate with nine runs in the top of the first. F igueroa scored twice and McGhee, Vanessa Ortiz, Michaela Villarreal, Henderson, Harned, Ramos and Allen added solo scores. Frostproof left a pair of runners stranded. Hardee left Harned and pitcher Erekson on base in the top of the second. Frostproof picked up a pair of scores to make it a 9-2 game. In the third frame, Hardee plated three more runs, by Ortiz, Villarreal and Henderson, with hits from Tatum and Allen keep ing them moving. It was 12-2. Frostproof left two aboard. The final pair of tallies for the junior Lady Cats was in the fourth inning when Diana DeSantiago and Villarreal crossed home plate to make it 14-2. The junior Lady Bulldogs make a game of it with a fourth inning rally, when eight run ners came home on a variety of walks, errors and hits before Hardee was able to stop the onslaught and preserve a 14-10 win. Hardee 10, DeSoto 0 At home on Mar. 4, Hardee shut down the DeSoto junior Lady Dawgs 10-0 behind the pitching of Tatum, who also sin gled twice and homered. She put three runs on the board. Figueroa and Villarreal added twin tallies and Henderson, Ramos and Allen had one apiece. H ardee 10, Sebring 3 The Friday home game against Sebring was another Hardee victory, 10-3. Sebring plated two runs in the third inning on a hit, error and fielders choice. In the fifth, another junior Lady Blue Streak runner crossed home plate on a hit, an error and a sacrifice. Hardee stranded Figueroa in the home half of the first after she had doubled. The first Lady Cat run came in inning two, with Harned slap ping a single to left field and coming home on hits by Ramos, Allen and McGhee. In the third inning, the junior Lady Cats put the game away by sending 11 batters to the plate and bringing eight of them home. Tatum started it, and Flores, Tara McNabb, Hender-son, Harned, Ramos, Allen and McGhee followed her around the base paths. When the dust settled, it was 9-1. Hardee traded scores with Sebring in the fifth inning. Hardee got its when Allen singled to left field and rode home on a Villarreal hit to deep left to end the game with Hardees 10-3 win.
