KRAHL Managing Editor LETTERS:The Herald-Advocate welcomes letters to the editor on matters of public in terest. Letters should be brief, and must be written in good taste, signed andinclude a daytime phone number.SUBMISSIONS:Press releases on community matters are welcome. Submissions should betyped, double-spaced and adhere to the above deadlines. All items are subjectto editing. Kelly’s Column By Jim Malaysian Flight 370, the Boeing 777, did not land at Wauchula Airport, The Herald-Advocate has confirmed. ——— Hardee County economic development director Bill Lambert said he often feels like the lonely Maytag repairman. He runs into alot of criticism and lack of support in trying to diversify the county’seconomy through creation of good-paying full-time jobs. He believes agriculture is in decline here and that mining jobs will end in a few decades and wonders what will be left then. Billbelieves economic diversification is a must for the future well-beingof Hardee. He estimates economic development efforts over the pastseveral years have created about 150 direct jobs here with prospectsfor another 60 fairly soon. He said more good housing is neededhere. ——— Main Street Wauchula on Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will present live entertainment by The Pick Up Artists, agri cultural displays and exhibits, farm equipment, fresh produce, his toric tours, arts and crafters, kids activities, do wntown shopping and dining. Sponsors are Debbie and Doyle Carlton III, Hardee CountyDisposal and Veg-King. ——— An anonymous friend recently wrote this tribute to Bess: Cer tainly not I, and even more so, the entire county does not acknowl edge enough all the thoughtful and helpful things that does our Bess.No wonder her name rhymes with blessed, and we truly are blessedby her presence and her deeds among us—lunch for an ill or shut-in person, a card and thanks for help, remembering to ask about ourproblems, a funeral dish, help at the church or with this club or that,serving on boards and always volunteering, ‘can I help with this orwith that?’ year in and year out, dependable, available, deservingand serving, gladly and without fuss. So from all of us who do notsay ‘thank you’ enough. We really do ‘thank you’ that is — fromus.” ——— The October 2013 issue of the Rotarian magazine reports this information about lead, as reported by S. A. Swanson: Lead was dis covered over 8,000 years ago and is a malleable metal and resistscorrosion and oxidation. During the Roman Empire lead was usedin paints, pottery, glazes, plumbing and cosmetics. Lead acetate wasused as a sweetener for wines and other foods, causing lead poison ing among the affluent. A range of health problems, including comas and brain damage, are associated with lead poisoning, which can be fatal. The U.S.Food and Drug Administration banned the use of lead in solder forfood cans in 1995. It banned the use of lead in wine-bottle foil in1996. In 2011 the U.S. mandated in products manufactured for chil dren the total lead content of accessible components could not ex ceed 100 parts per million. The lead levels in unpolluted soil average10 parts per million. To neutralize lead in soil, a $4 million EPA project in California used ground fish bones. As the bones decay, their phosphates bindwith the lead to form a harmless mineral called pyromorphite. TheEPA reported one month after the first residential yard received thistreatment the soil had reached a safe lead level. From 1963 to 1986at least 119 bald eagles in a sample of 2,000 had died of lead poi soning. Lead shot was banned in U.S. waterfowl hunting in 1991. ——— Former Hardee County Library director Randy Wilkinson now lives in Lakeland and plans to run for a Polk County School Boardseat this fall. He served on the Polk School Board from 1994 to 1998before being elected to the Polk County Commission and servingfrom 1999 until 2010 when he was term-limited. In 2010 he ran for U.S. Congress as a Tea Party member and lost to Dennis Ross, a Republican. Democrat Lori Edwards also ranin that race. Wilkinson is concerned with school discipline, espe cially bullying, and the importance of vocational education sincenot every student is going to college, reported political reporter BillRufty of the Lakeland Ledger. ——— Former Ledger reporter and humor columnist Bill Bair died March 9 in Orlando following complications from heart surgery. Hehad a long-time battle with diabetes. He wrote for the Ledger for about 30 years following six years with the Lake Wales Daily Highlander. ——— A note from former Wauchula resident Frank Davis says “Go Wildcats!” He is serving some time at Moore Haven CorrectionalInstitution and adds, “We never know how good we have it until it’sgone.” ——— Jarica Arnett, a junior at Lake Gibson High School, wrote a sci ence fiction book at age 16 entitled “What Are We?” She wrote the53,000-word book in 30 days and won the writing contest, gettingit published free.

Because Juarez had left his vehicle partially in the roadway,it was towed away. A criminal history check on Juarez revealed that he was aconvicted felon, and has activearrest warrants from New Jerseyfor failure to appear there oncharges of aggravated assaultwith deadly weapons. Thefelony history added the chargesof possession of a weapon andammo by a convicted felon andhis being held without bail onthe aggravated assault charge. five years in advance and cur rently there are plans to build a$1 million fire station in Bowl-ing Green in 2014-15. The rest of the planned capitalexpenses would be to replaceequipment as needed. In 2017-18 the department is budgeting$550,000 to replace a fire en-gine but typical capital expensesrange from $20,000 to $90,000per year. Fire Chief James Stillwagon said he wants to maintain thecurrent level of service while nothaving large increases in thebudget. He said the departmentwill replace current equipmentwhen necessary but felt he didnot need to purchase additionalpieces of equipment not alreadyin the fleet. The budget is generated from the fire assessments, inspectionfees, reserves and some supple mental Ad Valorem or propertytax dollars. Inspections generate $350,000 a year on average, which leaves$2,793,617 that must come fromother funding sources. Normal staffing levels have a total of 12 people on duty at onetime between the three fire sta tions in Zolfo Springs, Wau-chula and Bowling Green. Ofthe dozen, seven employees areallocated to fire and five forEMS. Firefighters work a 24-hour shift and are then off for 48hours, which means a staff of atleast 36 employees, with moreneeded for vacation, sick leaveand such. For budgeting purposes, 58.33 percent of administrativeexpenses and salaries are as-signed to fire and 41.67 percentto EMS. The last study was conducted in 2007 and the figures havechanges considerably since then. In 2007, the department received 2,083 calls for fires ver sus 2,220 fire calls receivedannually on average now. EMScalls have decreased from 2,420in 2007 to 1,798 currently. If an ambulance and fire truck respond to the same incident, itis logged as both a fire call andan EMS call. If multiple firetrucks are sent to the same loca tion or fire, it is recorded as justone call. The current call data received equates to 55.25 percentfor fire and 44.75 percent toEMS. Of the 2,220 fire calls received annually, 1,041(46.9 per cent) were from residences, 262(11.8 percent) from commercialproperties, 30 (1.3 percent) fromindustrial/warehouses, 232 (10.4percent) from institutions, 80(3.59 percent) from transient oc cupancy and 575 (25.9 percent)from vacant land. The county needs to generate $2.79 million in assessments tokeep from supplementing thebudget with Ad Valorem taxes. Currently the county offers exemptions to the fire assess ment for government facilities,schools, churches, non-profits,hardships and the land buy-backprogram. Those exemptionstotal just more than $1 million. The assessments currently generate 63 percent of the firecontrol budget while the countymust contribute 37 percent tomake up for the exempt proper ties. The county’s obligation to supplement the budget for gov ernment-exempt parcels is$194,843, churches and non-profits are $285,473, hardshipexemptions $15,310 and theland buy-back program$524,833. July. They enjoy the rural set ting, low-cost fueling station andairport lounge with its welcom ing atmosphere. Most are members of the Sun state Wing & Rotor Club, oneof the oldest and largest rotor craft clubs in the U.S, and hasbeen hosting this event inWauchula since 1998. Formerlyheadquartered in Fort Myers, itis now centered in St. Peters-burg. Most of the visiting pilots op erate a gyroplane or gyrocopter,a propeller-driven aircraft whichuses a non-powered rotor for liftinstead of wind. It does not spinor stall like fixed-wing aircraft,allowing it to stay fully control lable even if the engine quits. Enthusiasts consider the af fordable one-seat and two-seater, fixed wing or ultralight,closed or open cockpit aircraft tobe the most agile and maneuver able of aircraft. They are pushedor towed to the tarmac. Landingaircraft always have the right ofway. Gyros begin flying shortly after first light, when the day’sbriefing is complete. They con tinue all day but land well beforedusk. They usually fly at 1,000feet or lower and can reachspeeds up to 65 miles per hour. They can stay aloft for up to three hours with additional fueltanks aboard, but most pilots justenjoy the quiet gliding over thecountryside. There is no flyingover camping areas and pilotsmust stay at least 500 feet frompeople, animals, cars and build ings. The Bensen Days event is after Igor Bensen, who is con sidered the father of the moderngyroplane, who designed it andfirst called it “gyrocopter.” The planes were first designed by a Spanish noblemannamed Juan de la Cerva in 1923to replace the unsafe World WarI fixed wing bomber. The Pit cairn model was further devel oped in the late 1920s in theUnited States to deliver mail aspilots could land and take offfrom the tops of post offices. Amelia Earhart was one of the early pilots who flew these air craft and set an auto-gyrocopteraltitude record of 18,300 feet,which stood for many years. Benson created the gyro copter, which he called everyman’s flying machine in the1950s. He has been an honoredguest at Bensen Days eventsprior to his death in 2000. A world record was set in Wauchula during Bensen Daysin 1998 by Denver physicianBill Clem, a specialist in high al titude rescues. Clem set a highaltitude record here of 24,463feet in his open-cockpit rotor craft, a feat witnessed by an of ficial from the NationalAeronautic Association and latercertified as a world record by theinternational aeronautical boardheadquartered in France. In recent years the increase in European models and availabil ity of thrifty aviation hasbrought more and more innova tions to the rotorcraft and ex panding their usefulness beyondrecreational activity. Locally,most enthusiasts come to pro mote rotorcraft education, safetyand comradery among vendors,builders, pilots and the public,which is welcome to visit. 1849. Five renegade Indians killed Capt.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A AvilesStoneHernandez-CervantesStatonJacksonWinslow Drug Dealers Unwelcome In Hardee County By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Whether traffic stops, follow ing tips or just plain surveil lance, local law enforcementofficers are proactive in effortsto reduce drug traffic in HardeeCounty. A half dozen arrests latelast week is a good example. Sheriff’s Office and Wauchula police officials agree. “Weare continuing to take drug usersand dealers off the street,” saidSheriff’s Maj. Randy Dey onTuesday afternoon. Wauchula Lt. Matthew What ley has the same thought. “Weare definitely keeping a closeeye on drug activity in the city.Just because it seems someone isgetting away with somethingdoesn’t mean we’re not watch ing.” In one Wauchula event on Fri day about 2:06 a.m., an alterca tion at Primo’s Bar on U. S. 17South led to the arrest of Fulgen cio Aviles, 33, of 1823 RigdonRd., Wauchula. According to Whatley, a de scription of a vehicle leavingPrimo’s bar was broadcast and itwas shortly observed on north bound U.S. 17 and stopped byOfc. Jesse Poole. The suspectgave permission for a search. Apants pocket contained clearplastic bags normally used forpossession of methamphetamineor other drugs. Further search allegedly showed 22 small clear plasticbags with some form or other ofopium or its derivative or co caine. Because of the largeamount of baggies, charges in cluded possession of opium orits derivative with intent to selland possession of cocaine withintent to sell as well as posses sion of drug paraphernalia. Whatley also related another incident. The previous day,Poole also happened to be theofficer who conducted a routinetraffic stop about 2:28 a.m. at Main Street and King Road. Thedriver, Christopher AndrewStone, 38, of 311 Kenyon Ave.,Wauchula, allowed search of histruck, in which were located aglass pipe, straw, scale, a plasticcontainer with baggies of a sub stance which tested positive formethamphetamine. Stone was charged with pos session of methamphetamineand possession of drug para phernalia. When he arrived atthe jail, warrants were servedcharging him with possession ofmethamphetamine, possessionof marijuana and possession ofdrug paraphernalia. Four men were arrested on Thursday by Sheriff’s officersand face a variety of charges,said Dey, all part of ongoing ef forts to curtail drug use. The first came as the result of a traffic stop on West MainStreet near Airport Road, whenDep. Steven Ahrens saw a whitetruck pulling a trailer with nolights on it. After stopping it,Ahrens checked and could lo cate no driver’s license for thedriver, Hector Hugo Herna-ndez-Cervantes, 38, of 191 Sec ond St., E., Zolfo Springs. According to the arrest report, Hernandez-Cervantes attemptedto conceal items in his righthand looking like drug para phernalia, which later were con firmed as a plastic pipe withwhite residue, a clear plastic bagwhich also had white residueand tin foil with burn marks andresidue. All three tested positivefor methamphetamine, said thepolice report. Hernandez was charged with possession of methampheta mine, possession of drug para phernalia and no valid license.He was held on $1,750 bond. The other three arrests came between 9:20 and 10:57 p.m.when individuals were pickedup by members of the Drug TaskForce after exiting a reputed “drug area,” said Dey. The first arrested was Michael James Staton, 21, of 801 N.Clermont Ave., Fort Meade,who was allegedly driving withan expired tag on a vehicle inwhich he was a passenger.About to be searched, he al legedly stuffed a baggie in hismouth, which later was deter mined to contain 4.1 grams ofmethamphetamine. Other items in his possession allegedly were numerous ziplock baggies with drug residue.He was charged with possessionof methamphetamine, tamper ing/destroying evidence andpossession of drug paraphernaliaand was detained in lieu of$2,500 bail. The last two suspects who were arrested were in the samevehicle, which was allegedlystopped for speeding on U.S. 17South. The driver, Alvin Dale Jackson, 22, of 611 E. Summit St.,Wauchula, was searched anddrug paraphernalia locatedwhich also tested positive formethamphetamine residue.

6A The Herald-Advocate, March 20, 2014 Dade City resident Richard Clinton now holds the record forcatching the largest brown bull head catfish on rod and reel inFlorida waters, according to theFlorida Fish & Wildlife Conser vation Commission. On Feb. 12, Clinton was crap pie fishing with his cousin onLake Iola, a privately ownedlake in Pasco County. At 9:30a.m., something big latched ontohis live minnow in 32 feet ofwater. When the fish surfaced,they saw that it was a hugebrown bullhead. “I was surprised at how strong the fish pulled once I hooked it,”Clinton said. “It fought harderthan a seven-pound bass I also caught.” The astonished Clinton believed his fish weighed signifi cantly more than the existingstate record, so he contactedFWC freshwater fishery biolo gist Eric Johnson at the agency’sLakeland regional office. The next day, Johnson offi cially certified the fish as a newstate record brown bullhead. Thefish weighed 7.02 pounds andwas 22.25 inches in length witha girth of 15.5 inches. Unbelievably, it was just a few ounces shy of the worldrecord. The previous state record was a 5.72-pound brown bullheadcaught by Robert Bengis on Cedar Creek in Duval County in1995. Per FWC state record fish cer tification rules, fish must belegally caught using activehook-and-line methods by anangler with a valid Florida fish ing license or who is exemptfrom license requirements. AFWC biologist must verify thespecies and weigh it on a certi fied scale. “I knew I had a big fish,” Clinton said. “I’m glad I wasrecognized for catching a staterecord brown bullhead.” Brown bullhead catfish are native to the eastern UnitedStates and are similar in appear ance to the yellow bullhead. Ac cording to the InternationalGame Fish Association, theworld record brown bullhead isa seven-pound, six-ounce fishthat Glenn Collacuro caughtfrom Mahopac Lake in NewYork on Aug. 1, 2009. The FWC also recognizes an glers who catch a memorable-size fish by giving them a “BigCatch” certificate. These certifi cates are issued for 33 differentspecies of freshwater fish andare subject to less stringentguidelines than for record fish,allowing anglers to be recog nized if the fish’s weight orlength exceeds minimum stan dards. Catfish Hooks State Record getting the money. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert told the board at itsmeeting last week there was nourgency to approve the contractbut he wanted to go through theagreement so members couldexpress their concerns and mod ify the document.

Mosaic President and CEO James Prokopanko said themerger will provide the com pany with increased operatingefficiencies, lower productioncosts and reduced capital in-vestment. The company originally planned to invest $1 billion de veloping the proposed Ona mineand will now spend approxi mately $500 million to upgradethe former CF beneficiationplant in Fort Green. “The addition of these new phosphate assets further solidi fies Mosaic’s position amongthe largest, most efficient andlowest cost phosphate producersin the world,” Prokopanko said. Mosaic also plans on devel oping the Desoto mine and ex panding its Wingate mine in thefuture. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Mosaic Company has completed its acquisition of CFIndustries’ phosphate assets afterit was granted regulatory ap proval from the U.S. Depart-ment of Justice. In the deal, Mosaic will ac quire 25,000 acres of land and abeneficiation plant in HardeeCounty, a phosphate manufac turing facility in Plant City andan ammonia terminal and ware house at the Port of Tampa.

Trouble is, when I liftedthe stove lid to clean it, therewas about an inch of greasygrime and rust. It's impossibleto get completely clean, andI'm kind of worried about agrease fire starting. What canI do to get my stove back inshape? —Clara in Tampa, Fla. A: Talk to your apartment manager or landlord. While ten ants are expected to keep theapartment's appliances clean, it'sneither fair nor safe to deal witha stove that is unreasonably dirty. The manager may counter that you accepted the apartment withthe appliances listed in goodworking condition, but I knowvery few people who have thetime or wherewithal to pry openthe stove hood and check theburners underneath during a touror a final walk-through. Review your apartment lease. In managed communities theseusually comply with what's re quired by state and municipaltenant/landlord laws, and it givesyou an idea of how much themanagement is willing to do inthis case. At the very least, insist that the manager help you clean thestove. That doesn't mean buyingyou a can of oven cleaner; itmeans sending a maintenanceperson to assess the situation andfind a safe way to clean it, orscheduling a contractor to cleanand maintain the appliance. If the stove is too difficult to clean, if it's rusting through orotherwise not in safe condition,most leases allow the manage ment to replace it with an accept able appliance. If the manageragrees to do this, get that pledgein writing along with an approx imate date that the appliance willbe replaced. What if the manager or land lord refuses to do any of thesethings? Look up your state'sstatute by typing tenant/landlordlaw and the name of your state ina search engine box. The land lord may or may not be requiredto maintain or replace certain ap pliances. That said, you can accomplish a heck of a lot just by being po lite and working with the man ager or landlord to find asolution. It's hard to react nega tively to a tenant asking, "Hey, Iwant to keep my apartment cleanand I need some help getting thestove up to snuff, can you help?" Although there are some nightmare landlords out there,most like keeping the value oftheir properties up and appreciatetenants helping to keep themthere. HOME TIP: To clean a stub born stain from a standard(enamel) stovetop, mix equalamounts of table salt, bakingsoda and water (about a table spoon each) and scrub the mix ture over the stain with a softcloth.Send your questions or home tipsto ask@thisisahammer.com.

This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta A ritual dating back millions of years takes place again thisspring on Florida beaches.Spring marks horseshoe crabs’mating season, and biologistswith the Florida Fish andWildlife Conservation Com-mission (FWC) want the pub lic’s help identifying spawningsites. Beachgoers will likely have the best luck spotting matinghorseshoe crabs around hightide, just before, during or aftera new or full moon. The condi tions around the full moon thisSunday, March 16, and the newmoon on March 30 will createideal opportunities to view thespawning behavior of horseshoecrabs. Mating crabs “pair up,” with the smaller male on top of thelarger female. Other male crabsmay also be present around thecouple. Beachgoers luckyenough to spot horseshoe crabsare asked to note how many theysee and whether the horseshoecrabs are mating. If possible, theobserver should also count howmany horseshoe crabs are mat ing adults and how many are ju veniles (4 inches wide orsmaller). In addition, biologists ask ob servers to provide the date, time,location, habitat type and envi ronmental conditions —such astides and moon phase — when asighting occurs. The FWC asks the public to report sightings through one ofseveral options. Go to My-FWC.com/Contact and go to“Horseshoe Crab Nesting Activ ity” for the “Submit a HorseshoeCrab Survey” link, then select“Florida Horseshoe CrabSpawning Beach Survey.” Youcan also report findings viaemail athorseshoe@MyFWC.com or byphone at 866-252-9326.The survey program began inApril 2002. Through 2013, theFWC has received 2,831 reportsfrom across Florida.Horseshoe crabs, often called“living fossils,” are an importantpart of the marine ecosystem.Their eggs are a food source foranimals. Birds, such as redknots, rely on horseshoe crabeggs to fuel their long migra tions to nesting grounds. Be ACitizen-Scientist: Help FWC Monitor Horseshoe Crabs 1.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Congratulations to the Hardee Wildcat nine, which won over DeSoto, Frostproof and Sebring in three solid games recently. The dozen seniors and host of underclassmen are playing effectively under the direction of veteran coach Steve Rewis. The JV boys have had to battle cancellations and infrequent ac tion, losing two games in the last two weeks, but it is still an uphill battle for Coach Travis Tubbs and company to gain some momentum when nearly every other game is cancelled. The Lady Wildcats, meanwhile were off for several days before playing four games in two days in a tourney at Sarasota. The girls beat Braden River, lost by one run to Palmetto and Plant City and had a harder time with Class 8A Strawberry Crest. It turned into a lot of good experience for the Lady Cats. In weightlifting, there is only one more regular-season match on the schedule before the sectional qualifier. Its time to make a move for serious contention in going to state. To date, only senior Joshua Almaraz is unbeaten this season. Despite topping his state-level per formance of a year ago, senior Keyon Brown placed second at a re cent meet. He could qualify and compete at state in his last Wildcat endeavor before heading off for his collegiate football career. The tennis girls are doing well, with a good mixture of seniors and underclassmen in the top five. Results from boys tennis have been unavailable. On the junior high level, its play and learn for the Hardee Junior High volleyball girls. The seventh graders seem to be having more success, perhaps because its a bit less competitive at the younger level. Youth softball got going with a day full of activity on Mar. 8. Pi oneer Restaurant leads the Belles 14-and-under division, and the Angels 10-and-under and the 8-and-under Dixie Darlings have been busy as well. We havent gotten any information on youth baseball, which is under way as well. Coming up, on April 5, is the first annual Orange & Blue Run/Walk at Pioneer Park. Proceeds will benefit Hardee Youth Foot ball. Cost is $30 per person by Mar. 20, $35 for late entry. Teams fees are $100 four to six runners. For more information, contact www.hardeeyouthfootball.com. Veteran basketball coach Vance Dickey brings us up-to-date on hoop heroes. Senior Steve Metayer is making college visits and hopes to make his decision and sign soon. Former players are making news. Ronnie Clark continues to shine in the European League and is presently playing in Finland. Mark St. Fort may be signing to play for a team in Paris shortly and Arnold Louis has already signed and is beginning play for Nogales in the Mexican League. All these players did well in their college careers and continue to reap the benefits. Theres boxing and wrestling coming up. Tori Ramirez is fighting on Saturday at the A La Carte Pavilion in Tampa in a four-round super bantamweight battle. Ruben Ozuna will be at 4 Bears Casino in New Town, N.

Sports UpdateBy Joan Seaman LIONFISH: NOT SO SCARY AND DELICIOUS! This column is brought to you by a colleague of mine, Amanda Nalley. Lionfish is a hot topic right now. The population of this invasive non-native species has boomed exponentially in the past few years, and recent scientific studies indicate that this species may be nega tively impacting our marine resources. Today, we are seeing them in places weve never seen them be fore, and there are no signs of them going away anytime soon. As the public information specialist for the FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management, it is my job to reach out to the media and sometimes the public with lionfish information. I often get asked questions like, Can you eat them? What do they taste like? How do you filet them without getting stuck by one of their venomous spines? While I knew the answers to the questions, first-hand knowledge often trumps what youve read any day. Last summer I got plenty of first-hand knowledge as I attended the first ever Northeast Florida Lionfish Rodeo in Jacksonville. As the boats began to come in, I, with the help of co-worker Alan Peirce, helped filet lionfish and, later, got to eat some. I admit, I was nervous as I began filleting my first one. Should I wear gloves? What if I get poked? What is the best way to get the meat off the fish? The best thing I learned that day? Its not as scary as it looks. Lionfish have up to 18 spines that have venom. To be clear here, the spines are not hollow like a snakes fangs. Instead, they are more like clear to opaque toothpicks with grooves. If you were to stick yourself, the skin covering the spine would push back, releasing the venom encapsulated in grooves along the spine. The venom is not in the meat of the fish. It is also susceptible to heat, so cooking the fish neutralizes it. The stings are painful, but can be treated with hot, but not scalding, water. When filleting a lionfish, you have quite a few options to keep your hands and fingers safe. My personal favorite was a needle-resistant glove. Using it on my left hand only to hold the fish down, I used my ungloved hand to fillet. Others chose to go gloveless and hold the spines down. Another option that I tried but didnt quite get comfortable with is clipping the spines with scissors. It was an effective method, but we had a lot of lionfish to fillet and it felt timeconsuming. For the most part, once you figure out the spine issue, filleting the fish is easy. It is just like filleting any other fish you catch. While there wasnt much meat on the smaller ones, the effort was worth the return: a delicious, flaky white delicacy. It is not fishy in taste and has a nice consistency. I tried lionfish three ways that night: in a ceviche, fried whole and fillets cooked in a light panko and served with rice and a mango reduction. All three were delicious. More restaurants are starting to serve up lionfish, which can be harvested and sold commercially. But the most rewarding part of being there was getting to talk to the public as they oohed and ahhed over the colorful fish. Some had never seen a lionfish. Many did not even know they were a prob lem in Floridas waters. Gone Coastal By Alan PeirceFish & Wildlife CommissionThe rodeo was a success, with more than 400 lionfish removed from the waters near Jacksonville. The largest was 17 inches and the smallest, a mere 3.5 inches. With the current best method of control being removal via nets or spearing devices, these grassroots efforts are one of the best means of limiting the population. In 2012, in an effort to encourage the public to participate in lionfish-control efforts, the FWC removed the requirement to have a recreational license when using specific gear to target lionfish, in cluding hand-held nets, pole spears, Hawaiian slings and any device geared specifically for lionfish. The FWC also removed any and all bag limits on lionfish. This column hopes to help recreational anglers understand complex saltwater regulations and learn more about saltwater fishing oppor tunities.

One more property tax exemption deadline is fast approaching! Business owners that are involved in a partnership, proprietor ship, corporation or are a self-employed agent or contractor, must file a tangible personal property tax return with our office by April 1st. Property owners who lease, lend or rent property must also file a return. If you accept compensation for services provided and use any type of equipment with that service, then you are required to file (photographers, auto detail services, rental businesses, cosme tologists, jewelry businesses, etc). Florida law provides that busi nesses who timely file their tax returns will receive an exemption in the amount of $25,000 this could save business owners up to $630.00 in taxes. If the value of your tangible personal property is less than $25,000 as of January 1st this year and you have filed a tax return in previous years, you should have received a notice in the mail ad vising you that you will not need to file a return. However, if you have never filed a return with our office or if the value of your prop erty exceeds $25,000, property owners are required to file a return. If a tax return is not filed with our office, a 25% penalty will be ap plied to your tax bill and no property tax exemption will be granted. If you are unsure whether or not you are required to file a return with our office, please contact us at 863/773-2196. All Tangible Personal Property returns must be filed by April 1st in order to receive the exemption and avoid a penalty.

Inside Out By Chip Ballard THE BEST OF BOBBY GOLDSBORO Florida native Bobby Goldsboro is the most versatile, multitalented musician, artist, writer, performer and producer in showbusiness. But where has he been? “I’ve been working, harder than I’ve ever worked in my life,” he told me the day I interviewed him after a concert at Cypress Gar dens. When filming of the final episode of the highly acclaimed TV show for children, “Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon,” was completedGoldsboro made his first live appearance in 18 years. That sold-out performance in China was the first of a series of concerts in selected locations around the world. Goldsboro’s concertschedule is posted on his website, bobbygoldsboro.com. Also posted there are samples of his Florida landscape paint ings, which he is under contract to do more of between TV showsand tour dates. Goldsboro began his career in the early 1960s as a guitarist for Roy Orbison. During his “Orbison years” he traveled all over the world and toured with the Beatles. In 1964 Goldsboro wrote and recorded “See the Funny Little Clown,” the first in a long string of hit records. In 1968 he recorded“Honey,” which became the largest-selling record in the world. In the ‘70s Goldsboro hosted his own nationally syndicated TV show that ran for three seasons. The show was so successful Golds boro became a sought-after guest on the television talk-show circuit.During those years he also formed House of Gold Music, which be came one of the most successful music publishing companies inNashville. A prolific songwriter, Goldsboro has received 27 BMI (Broad cast Music Industry) awards. Celebrities such as John Denver,Aretha Franklin, Paul Anka, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler and morehave recorded his compositions. His songs “With Pen in Hand” and“Autumn of My Life” are members of BMI’s exclusive “ MillionAirs Club,” which contains only songs that have been played on theair over one million times. In the mid-‘80s Goldsboro stopped performing, to the conster nation of his fans, to devote his time to writing and producing chil dren’s stories. “Easter Egg Mornin’ ” premiered as an animatedEaster special on the Disney Channel and was licensed for world wide distribution. “Easter Egg Mornin’ ” also premiered as a 36-page color read-along book and audiocassette from Goldsboro’s KidRhino Story series. Goldsboro’s animated Halloween story, “Lumpkin the Pump kin,” followed “Easter Egg Mornin’.” For two seasons Goldsboro was the sole music provid er (writer, producer and performer) on his buddy Burt Reynolds’ hit TV series,“Evening Shade.” Goldsboro wrote and performed every piece ofmusic on the show, including the theme song. At the close of the1993 season Goldsboro was awarded a BMI award for “EveningShade,” a first for the series. After “Evening Shade” Goldsboro created two more animated shows, but he is particularly proud of “Swamp Critters of Lost La goon.” Designed for children 2 to 6 years of age, “Swamp Critters”deals with issues such as cooperation, prejudice and pollution. Eachepisode teaches lessons in self-esteem and decision-making. Chil dren are exposed to a variety of music styles, including blues, rock'n' roll, country, Dixieland, Cajun, and classical, all performed byGoldsboro. Everything you hear on “Swamp Critters” is Goldsboro. Every character, every voice, every instrument in the orchestra, every back ground singer … everything is Goldsboro. He writes every scriptand produces every show. He helped design a system where he con trols the mouth movements of each character. “Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon” was awarded the seal of approval by the Dove Foundation, which identifies and promotes qual ity programs suitable for family viewing. It also received therecommended seal of approval from Parent’s Choice and was fea tured in a New York Times Magazine roundup of new, educationalFCC (Federal Communications Commission) kid-friendly pro grams. In a business notorious for chewing up and spitting out its great est heroes, Bobby Goldsboro has come through unscathed, ashealthy and wholesome as the clean-cut country boy he was in thehalcyon days of rock 'n' roll when he played lead guitar for Roy Or COURTESY PHOTO Chip Ballard with Bobby Goldsboro following Goldsboro’s 2011 concert at Cypress Gardens.

10B The Herald-Advocate, March 20, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateAfter an initial rainout, the Hardee Junior High volleyball squads got going with a busy first week. They are off for Spring Break this week, but resume play next Thursday, Mar. 27 with a visit from Heartland Conference opponent DeSoto. A trip to Hill Gustat on Mar. 31, completes the March action. Games continue on Mondays and Thursdays in April, with a visit from Hill-Gustat on April 3 completing the format of play ing each Conference opponent twice. There are seventh grade games at 5:30 and the eighth graders compete about 10 min utes after the first game, usually about 6:30 p.m. Hardee was supposed to start its season at home on Mar. 6 but thunderstorms and threat of heavy wind gusts cancelled the visit from Avon Park to Tuesday, Mar. 11. So, Hardee really started its season on Mar. 10 at home against Sebring. The seventh graders put up a battle in a 2624 overtime loss in the first game against Sebring. Jarisa Lindsey had seven service points and Chasity Flores added a half dozen. Hardee came back to win game two 25-17 with Sarah Carlton scoring eight service points and Rachel St. Fort getting the game winner. The third game, which usually goes to a maximum of 15 points, went to 17-15 before Sebring got the necessary two-point advantage for the 17-15 win, and the best two-of-three match win. The first eighth grade game was another barn-burner, with Sebring getting the 26-24 win in which is usually a 25-point game. Destinee Jackson scored seven service points to lead Hardee. Sebring also won game two, and the match, 25-14. Mallory Gough scored four points for Hardee. The Hardee seventh graders won in straight sets in last Tuesdays rescheduled home games against Avon Park. The first game was by a 25-7 margin, with Amari DeLeon getting the first seven Hardee points, Sarah Carlton, Ashley Patterson and Lindsey adding four apiece and Claire Carlton getting the final four. Hardee won the second game 25-16, behind the heavy scoring of Patterson, who had the first 14 and last two service points. Avon Park came back to take the eighth grade games 25-4 and 25-10. In its final series of the week, Hardee went to Lake Placid on Thursday. The seventh graders lost he first game 25-15 with DeLeon getting four service points. Hardee bounded back to win the second game 25-17, with Claire Carlton scoring eight points, including the game winner. Hardee won the third game 15-8 and took its first match victory. Patterson won the first two service points and final two. The eighth graders, playing the always tougher game, lost 25-11 and 25-7 to Lake Placid. Other seventh graders playing for coaches Becky Carlton, Stephanie Mier and Amy MontsDeOca are Bibiana MIer, Anabel Ramos, Jalen Ureste and Alyssa Weatherford. Other eighth graders are Hope Elliot, Denise Garza, Alexis Juarez, Adelina Luna, Alexis McBride, Karley Owens, Ellie Palmer and Joley Pleger. HJHS Volleyball Competitive By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateThey finally got two consecutive games on the field. The Hardee JV Wildcats played a pair of home games last week, the first time they have gotten both scheduled games played. They were previously four of eight in even playing scheduled games. Last week, it was a pair of top opponents in their sights as they lost 7-5 to Sebring on Monday and 9-3 to Frostproof on Thursday. Although it was Spring Break for most high school students, the Hardee JV played at Avon Park on Tuesday. They practice while other teams are on Spring Break next week, and resume action Mar. 28 at Lemon Bay. Then, its a trip to Avon Park on Mar. 31, a visit from DeSoto on April 3 and a trip to Lake Wales to finish the season on April 10. Sebring 7, Hardee 5 Hardee hosted Sebring on Mar. 10, giving up three runs in the first inning on a single and three doubles. Hardee left the bases jammed with Brandon Franks, Russell Weems and Aaron Harrison. Blue Streaks batters went down in order in the second inning. Hardee tied the game in the home half of the second. With one away, Isaac Flores sin gled to right field. Kyle Choate drew a walk and both trotted home on a Carlos Camacho dou ble to deep left and an ensuing error. Camacho came home on an error on a Brandon Franks hit. It was 3-3. Sebring added a two-spot in the top of the third on a triple and pair of doubles. Hardee left Wyatt Zeigler on base. In the fourth, Sebring picked up its final pair of scores on a pair of walks, an error and a sac rifice. It was 7-3. Hardee held the Streaks score less in the top of the sixth inning and attempted a big comeback. Flores started it with a walk and advanced on a wild pitch. With two down, Ryan Moore drew a walk. A Franks hit to deep right field brought one home and a Weems double to left got Moore home. Franks and Weems were left on base with the potential tying runs when the third out oc curred. Frostproof 9, Hardee 3 A half dozen errors led to the home game loss to the Frostproof junior Bulldogs last Thursday. The junior Bulldogs left the bases loaded in the top of the first. After a pair of strikeouts, Franks singled and raced home on Weems double to give Hardee the 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. In the second frame, it was four up, three down for Frostproof, while Harrison doubled and was caught stealing in the home half of the inning. Frostproof tied the score and forged ahead 2-1 in the top of the third on a fielders choice, single and pair of fielders choices. Hardee left Franks stranded. On to the fourth, which left one Bulldog stranded after he walked. Hardee evened the game with a run by Moore, who had walked and advanced on a Keith Choate sacrifice and scored on a Kyle Choate hit up the middle. It was 2-2. The young Bulldogs broke the game loose in the fifth inning with seven runs on a variety of walks and Wildcat miscues. It was 9-2. Hardee got its final tally in the home half of the sixth, and final, inning. Moore again walked, ad vanced on a Keith Choate hit up the middle and went to third when Harrison drew a walk. A fielders choice on a Kyle Choate hit allowed Moore to score his second run of the game. JV Wildcats Battling Hard Our wedding was not really that much, but 10 years later we had one great heck of a divorce. I was so smart in school that I got a seniors discount in the lunch room. Before falling in love, check with family and friends first, for then you might change your mind. Surprisingly, it has never taken a brain to wag a tongue. This has been a public service message. I was a guest speaker last night at a local bar. I was very warmly received. They doused me with lighter fluid, and some drunk lit a match. My cousin Morphus was attending flight school to become an airline pilot, but they kicked him out because he took a crash course. This recently married teenager was trying to impress her friend Mary Lou with how much she knows about doing the laundry. She said, Mary Lou, I always use plenty of bleach when I am drying Marks shirts. They say that Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. But excuse me, I thought a woman scorned was Hell. You are right. Bill is no yes man. All I have ever heard him say is yes sir and no sir. Once when I was about 8 years old, Daddy let me drive his Model-A Ford. I asked him, where would you like me to drive you? He said just follow your nose. I said Daddy, we dont have that much gas. Have you ever seen a woman go by driving a hearse? Truman A.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have tinnitus. It sounds likeroaring in my head. I takegabapentin for it. Do you knowof anything else for it? —E.A. ANSWER: You have an afflic tion that would drive me crazy— tinnitus, a constant noise inone or both ears or the head thatpeople describe in a variety ofways as ringing, whistling,buzzing, hissing or roaring. Anestimate of the number of Amer icans suffering from tinnitus(TIN-uh-tiss or tuh-NITE-iss) issomewhere between 16 millionand 60 million. Tinnitus mostly happens to older people whose hearing is di minishing. Why tinnitus arises inthem is explained by the fact thathead noises are generated con stantly. Outside noise enteringthe ears obliterates these internalnoises. When deafness ap proaches, the volume of externalnoises greatly lessens, and the in ternal noises then become promi nent and nerve-racking. If yourhearing is growing dimmer, ahearing aid will help you hearmore clearly and will dampenyour tinnitus. Other causes of tinnitus are as banal as a wax impaction in theeardrum, something easily takencare of by the family doctor.Drugs like aspirin and the nons teroidal anti-inflammatory med icines (Aleve, Advil, Motrin) canbring on tinnitus if they are con stantly used. If a cause cannot be deter mined, then other approacheshave to be taken. A bedside radiotuned to a station that plays thekind of music you like can re duce the volume of tinnitus.Nighttime is the worst time for it. Tinnitus maskers, devices worn like a hearingaid, emit a constantsound that dulls tin nitus. Do get in touch with the AmericanTinnitus Association.It will provide youwith a wealth of in formation on tinnitusand its treatments. You can reach the association online at www.ata.org. If youdon't have a computer, surely afriend, neighbor or relative doesand can hook you up with the as sociation. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please discuss liver cysts. TwoCT scans, taken years apart,revealed two liver cysts. I wastold not to be concerned.Should I be? —B.S. ANSWER: Since scans have become so routinely a part ofmedical practice, liver cysts areseen quite frequently. Most livercysts neither cause pain nor upsetliver function. No one is surewhy they form. Unless they arelarge or are causing symptoms,they can be left alone. Trouble-making liver cysts do exist. Some parasite infectionscause them. Those cysts almostalways produce symptoms thatcall for treatment. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I recently read several articles about the use of food-grade hydrogen perox ide. I am interested inusing it for prostate andurinary tract problems.Are there real benefitsfrom it? —J.C. ANSWER: Concentra tions of 1.5 percent hydro gen peroxide are used by someas a mouthwash and at 1.5 per cent to 3 percent as a woundcleaner. The same doses are usedto remove wax from the earcanal. I can't find any confirmation of the benefit of using food-gradehydrogen peroxide for prostateor urinary tract problems. Iwould not encourage you to useit. Food grade is a very high con centration.Dr. Donohue regrets that he isunable to answer individual let ters, but he will incorporate themin his column whenever possible.Readers may write him or re quest an order form of availablehealth newsletters at P.O.

Donohue To Your By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Lady Wildcat softball did well in a varsity-only weekend tour nament in Sarasota in which thelocal Class 5A girls contendedwith their counterparts fromClass 7A and Class 8A schools.The Lady Cats fashioned onewin, lost a pair of one-run gamesand gave up only one shutout. They will have “soft” prac tices during this Spring Breakweek, but take to the road onFriday night for a JV/varsitydouble-header at Lakeland at5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Next week is a busy threegame week, with a visit fromOkeechobee on Monday, a tripto Sebring on Tuesday and visitfrom Lemon Bay on Friday.Hardee eked out a 1-0 victoryover the Lady Manta Rays onFeb. 28 and hope to take anotherdistrict win. April starts with a Thursday game at district rival DeSoto onthe third and a home varsity-only game against Lakeland onApril 4 for Senior Night, whenKarlee Henderson, AddisonAubry and Arissa Camel will behonored. Hardee 9, Braden River 1 Hardee was the home team last Friday against Braden Riv-er of Bradenton, which left onerunner stranded in the top of thefirst. Hardee likewise left onerunner aboard. The Lady Pirates left another runner on base in the top of thesecond, while the Lady Catspicked up their first score.Makayla Deuberry walked, wentto second on a Henderson sacri fice and raced home on an AlexUllrich hit to right field. It was1-0. Braden River got its only tally in the top of the third on a hitbatsman, error and single to knotthe game at 1-0. Hardee batterswere retired in order. Pitcher Henderson held Braden River at bay for the rest of thegame while the Lady Cats wentabout piling up runs. In the topof the fourth, it was KendallGough opening with a double toleft center and advancing on aKim Derringer sacrifice. Deu berry drew a walk. A Hendersondouble to left field got two run ners home and an Ullrich andpassed ball brought Hendersonhome. It was 4-1. Two more Lady Wildcat run ners came home in the fifth in ning. Hannah Carlton was safeon an error and raced in on an other Gough double. She camein on a Deuberry double to makeit 6-1. The final trio of Hardee runs came in the sixth. Ullrich, Aubryand Jakayshat Lindsey all drewwalks, circling the bases andcoming home on a Carlton long-range hit and Morgan Walterssacrifice. Palmetto 2, Hardee 1 The first game on Saturdaymorning pitted Hardee againstthe Palmetto Lady Tigers, whowere the visiting team on thescoreboard. Ullrich was on the mound for the Lady Cats and sat the LadyTigers down in order in theopening inning. Senida Garciasingled for a good start forHardee. Carlton also singled but both runners were erased on adouble play on a Morgan Wal ters hit. A Henderson doublealso went for naught when thethird out occurred. It went back to a pitchers’ duel in the second and third inning.Palmetto put up a two-spot inthe top of the fourth on a walk,error and overthrow. Hardee re mained scoreless. The game rocked on, with three up, three down or a runnerstranded here and there until thehome half of the seventh, whenHardee mounted a rally. Withone down, Deuberry singled andUllrich was safe on an error. Anerror on a Derringer hit broughtDeuberry home but Ullrich waserased on a fielder’s choice andthe third out ended the effortwith the 2-1 loss. Strawberry Crest 6, Hardee 0 The Lady Chargers became only the second team this entireseason to stop the Lady Wild-cats. Hardee was the home team, but could not rally against thestrong pitching and fielding ofStrawberry Crest. The Chargersplated three runs in the first, twomore in the second and a solohomer in the fifth inning enroute to its 6-0 win. Plant City 3, Hardee 2 The final game of the tourna ment for the Lady Wildcats wasagainst the Plant City Raiders,which won 3-2. Again, Hardeewas the visiting team on thescoreboard. Plant City got on the board first, with a pair of walks anddouble putting one run on theboard in the top of the first, be fore Lady Cat hurler Garcia gother rhythm. Hardee got on the board to tie the game in the top of the sec ond. Henderson doubled, wentto third on a Deuberry hit toright field. Henderson waserased on a Derringer fielder’schoice, but she came acrosshome on a Sara Welch hit tomake it 1-1. The Lady Raiders forged ahead in the home half of thethird on an error, fielder’s choiceand overthrow to lead 2-1. That score held up until the top of the sixth, when Hardeeagain tied the game. Ullrich ledoff with a triple, had to hold ona Garcia bunt and came home ona Henderson single before thethird out left the teams knotted2-2. Plant City was able to get a runner home in the last half ofthe seventh. With one away, anerror and single allowed thewinning run to score and givethe Lady Raiders the 3-2 win. “It was really good experience for us to go against teams fromother schools. Going against 7Aand 8A schools was good for usand we played four goodgames,” commented HardeeHead Coach Caitlyn Bliss. Lady Cats Challenge The Best DETECTING DEPRES SION WITH COMPUTER TABLET The day might come when you show up at your doctor's of fice for an appointment, handover your ID card — and you'rehanded back an iPad tablet orsimilar electronic device. You'llbe asked to answer questions onthe screen. Researchers at King's College London teaching hospital inthe U.K. used these devices intheir study into whether patientswith physical illnesses also haddepression. They determinedthat as many as 30 percent ofthose with long-term conditionshad some type of mental-healthconcerns as well. The electronic gadgets were a frontline means of screening.The results were instantaneous,and it meant better recognitionof patient concerns, as well asactions being taken to addressthose concerns once the patientgot in to see the doctor. In the study, the sets of ques tions on the device could begeared to the patient's medicalcondition, such as heart diseaseor chronic pain, and covered areas such as adherence to treat ment plans, alcohol use andquality of life, as well as depres sion. The results varied, depending on the illness, but the questionsgave doctors information thatmight not come out in a short of fice visit. The information couldbe compared from one visit tothe next. The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) also was used inan Australian study, but with adifferent slant: This research fo cused on whether doctors in dif ferent countries were good atspotting depression. Italy andthe Netherlands had goodscores; the U.S. and Australiadid not. So if you're handed an elec tronic device and asked to put inyour answers, do it. It might re veal some information that yourdoctor isn't likely to spot on hisown.Matilda Charles regrets that shecannot personally answerreader questions, but will incor porate them into her columnwhenever possible.

By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee County Commission may consider making changes to the fire assessment rates after a recent study showed which property use categories require the majority of the services versus how much they contribute to the budget. The fire budget and Emergency Medical Services budgets are kept separately even though they are both under the Hardee County Fire Rescue. The current call data equates to 55.25 per cent for fire and 44.75 percent for EMS. Currently each residence is assessed $121.25, commercial buildings 21 cents a square foot, industrial/warehouses 8 cents a square foot, institutions 19 cents a square foot, transients (hotels, motels and non-state-registered RV parks) $8.93 per unit and vacant land 44 cents per acre. Based on the most recent call da ta, county Budget Director Janice Williamson provided a breakdown of what each cate gory should contribute to pay for its portion of the services re ceived. It shows each of the 8,902 residences in the county should pay $147.21, commercial buildings 14 cents a square foot, in dustrial/warehouses 3 cents a square foot, institutions 26 cents a square foot, transient occu pancy $49.50 per unit and land $2.06 per acre. The current operating budget for the Fire Department is $3.14 million, of which $2,1999,765 is personnel services, $454,548 for operating expenses, $127,395 for transfers and $361,909 allocated for capital outlay each year. Capital projects are budgeted See FIRE2A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate From being homeless to performing at Carnegie Hall. Former Hardee Countian James Matthews, is living a dream. In April, he will be traveling to New York City to per form in that prestigious concert venue. His journey began when he was 3 years old, when he started taking piano lessons. His dad was his first teacher, and stayed his teacher for a few years. However, Matthews says he did nt really become interested in the instrument until he was in middle school. The 2007 Hardee High School graduate became intrigued by the instrument and eventually decided he wanted to continue his love for it. He is currently at the University of W est Florida where he is pursuing his degree in music perform ance. The path to Carnegie Hall has not been easy for Matthews. There was a period of about 17 months when he was homeless while he was going to college in Lakeland. He is now happy to say he overcame those unforeseen cir cumstances and was still able to continue with his musical goals. Over the past few weeks, Matthews entered the 2014 American Protg International Piano and Strings Competition. He, along with several others from around the world, submitted a video online of him play ing the piano.

According to the reports from the Hardee County Sheriffs Office, the incident leading to the arrest of Gregorio Juarez began shortly after 10 p.m. on Satur day. Before midnight, Juarez, 59, of 160 Poucher Rd., Wauchula, was in the Hardee County Jail, charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, carrying a concealed weapon firearm, two counts possession of a weapon/ammo by a convicted fe lon and armed trespass on a structure/conveyance. He remained in jail without bond on the first charge and bonds of $11,000 on the other c harges. According to law enforcement reports, deputies were dis patched to a Zolfo Springs location where they found two men on the ground, one holding the other down, and a gun on the ground near them. Interviews indicated Juarez had come to the home of Fer nando Castillo-Hernandez ask ing for his daughter, who he believed to be residing there. When Castillo-Hernandez advised she was not there, Juarez allegedly pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at Castillo-Hernandez, who slapped it away and wrestled Juarez to the ground to hold him until officers arrived. When Dep. David Cruz and D ep. Ryan Abbott arrived, they separated the men and took Juarez into custody, along with the gun on the ground nearby. The Sig Sauer 9 MM handgun contained 15 rounds of ammuni tion, although there was none See DAUGHTER 2A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Want to experience what it was like when Indians and sol diers roamed Hardee County?

Submissions should be typed, double-spaced and adhere to the above deadlines. All items are subject to editing. Kellys Column B y Jim Malaysian Flight 370, the Boeing 777, did not land at Wauchula A irport, The Herald-Advocate has confirmed. Hardee County economic development director Bill Lambert said he often feels like the lonely Maytag repairman. He runs into a lot of criticism and lack of support in trying to diversify the countys economy through creation of good-paying full-time jobs. He believes agriculture is in decline here and that mining jobs will end in a few decades and wonders what will be left then. Bill believes economic diversification is a must for the future well-being of Hardee. He estimates economic development efforts over the past several years have created about 150 direct jobs here with prospects for another 60 fairly soon. He said more good housing is needed here. Main Street Wauchula on Saturday, March 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. will present live entertainment by The Pick Up Artists, agricultural displays and exhibits, farm equipment, fresh produce, historic tours, arts and crafters, kids activities, downtown shopping and dining.

An anonymous friend recently wrote this tribute to Bess: Certainly not I, and even more so, the entire county does not acknowledge enough all the thoughtful and helpful things that does our Bess. No wonder her name rhymes with blessed, and we truly are blessed by her presence and her deeds among uslunch for an ill or shutin person, a card and thanks for help, remembering to ask about our problems, a funeral dish, help at the church or with this club or that, serving on boards and always volunteering, can I help with this or with that? year in and year out, dependable, available, deserving and serving, gladly and without fuss. So from all of us who do not say thank you enough. We really do thank you that is from us. The October 2013 issue of the Rotarian magazine reports this information about lead, as reported by S. A. Swanson: Lead was dis covered over 8,000 years ago and is a malleable metal and resists corrosion and oxidation. During the Roman Empire lead was used in paints, pottery, glazes, plumbing and cosmetics. Lead acetate was used as a sweetener for wines and other foods, causing lead poisoning among the affluent. A range of health problems, including comas and brain damage, are associated with lead poisoning, which can be fatal. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration banned the use of lead in solder for food cans in 1995. It banned the use of lead in wine-bottle foil in 1996. In 2011 the U.S. mandated in products manufactured for chil dren the total lead content of accessible components could not exceed 100 parts per million. The lead levels in unpolluted soil average 10 parts per million. To neutralize lead in soil, a $4 million EPA project in California used ground fish bones. As the bones decay, their phosphates bind with the lead to form a harmless mineral called pyromorphite. The EPA reported one month after the first residential yard received this treatment the soil had reached a safe lead level. From 1963 to 1986 at least 119 bald eagles in a sample of 2,000 had died of lead poisoning. Lead shot was banned in U.S. waterfowl hunting in 1991. Former Hardee County Library director Randy Wilkinson now lives in Lakeland and plans to run for a Polk County School Board seat this fall. He served on the Polk School Board from 1994 to 1998 before being elected to the Polk County Commission and serving from 1999 until 2010 when he was term-limited. In 2010 he ran for U.S. Congress as a Tea Party member and lost to Dennis Ross, a Republican. Democrat Lori Edwards also ran in that race. Wilkinson is concerned with school discipline, espe cially bullying, and the importance of vocational education since not every student is going to college, reported political reporter Bill Rufty of the Lakeland Ledger. Former Ledger reporter and humor columnist Bill Bair died March 9 in Orlando following complications from heart surgery. He had a long-time battle with diabetes. He wrote for the Ledger for about 30 years following six years with the Lake Wales Daily Highlander. A note from former Wauchula resident Frank Davis says Go Wildcats! He is serving some time at Moore Haven Correctional Institution and adds, We never know how good we have it until its gone.

Be cause Juarez had left his vehicle partially in the roadway, it was towed away. A criminal history check on Juarez revealed that he was a convicted felon, and has active arrest warrants from New Jersey for failure to appear there on charges of aggravated assault with deadly weapons. The felony history added the charges of possession of a weapon and ammo by a convicted felon and his being held without bail on the aggravated assault charge. five years in advance and cur re ntly there are plans to build a $1 million fire station in Bowling Green in 2014-15. The rest of the planned capital expenses would be to replace equipment as needed. In 201718 the department is budgeting $550,000 to replace a fire engine but typical capital expenses range from $20,000 to $90,000 per year. Fire Chief James Stillwagon said he wants to maintain the current level of service while not having large increases in the budget. He said the department will replace current equipment when necessary but felt he did not need to purchase additional pieces of equipment not already in the fleet. The budget is generated from the fire assessments, inspection fees, reserves and some supplemental Ad Valorem or property tax dollars. Inspections generate $350,000 a year on average, which leaves $2,793,617 that must come from other funding sources. Normal staffing levels have a total of 12 people on duty at one time between the three fire sta tions in Zolfo Springs, Wauchula and Bowling Green. Of the dozen, seven employees are allocated to fire and five for EMS. Firefighters work a 24-hour shift and are then off for 48 hours, which means a staff of at least 36 employees, with more needed for vacation, sick leave and such. For budgeting purposes, 58.33 percent of administrative expenses and salaries are assigned to fire and 41.67 percent to EMS. The last study was conducted in 2007 and the figures have changes considerably since then. In 2007, the department received 2,083 calls for fires versus 2,220 fire calls received annually on average now. EMS calls have decreased from 2,420 in 2007 to 1,798 currently. If an ambulance and fire truck respond to the same incident, it is logged as both a fire call and an EMS call. If multiple fire trucks are sent to the same location or fire, it is recorded as just one call. The current call data received equates to 55.25 percent for fire and 44.75 percent to EMS. Of the 2,220 fire calls received annually, 1,041(46.9 per cent) were from residences, 262 (11.8 percent) from commercial properties, 30 (1.3 percent) from industrial/warehouses, 232 (10.4 percent) from institutions, 80 (3.59 percent) from transient oc cupancy and 575 (25.9 percent) from vacant land. The county needs to generate $2.79 million in assessments to keep from supplementing the budget with Ad Valorem taxes. Currently the county offers exemptions to the fire assess ment for government facilities, schools, churches, non-profits, hardships and the land buy-back program. Those exemptions total just more than $1 million. The assessments currently generate 63 percent of the fire control budget while the county must contribute 37 percent to make up for the exempt properties. The countys obligation to supplement the budget for government-exempt parcels is $194,843, churches and nonprofits are $285,473, hardship exemptions $15,310 and the land buy-back program $524,833. July. They enjoy the rural set t ing, low-cost fueling station and airport lounge with its welcoming atmosphere. Most are members of the Sunstate Wing & Rotor Club, one of the oldest and largest rotor craft clubs in the U.S, and has been hosting this event in Wauchula since 1998. Formerly headquartered in Fort Myers, it is now centered in St. Petersburg. Most of the visiting pilots operate a gyroplane or gyrocopter, a propeller-driven aircraft which uses a non-powered rotor for lift instead of wind. It does not spin or stall like fixed-wing aircraft, allowing it to stay fully controllable even if the engine quits. Enthusiasts consider the af fordable one-seat and twoseater, fixed wing or ultralight, closed or open cockpit aircraft to be the most agile and maneuver able of aircraft. They are pushed or towed to the tarmac. Landing aircraft always have the right of way. Gyros begin flying shortly after first light, when the days briefing is complete. They continue all day but land well before dusk. They usually fly at 1,000 feet or lower and can reach speeds up to 65 miles per hour. They can stay aloft for up to three hours with additional fuel t anks aboard, but most pilots just enjoy the quiet gliding over the countryside. There is no flying over camping areas and pilots must stay at least 500 feet from people, animals, cars and buildings. The Bensen Days event is after Igor Bensen, who is con sidered the father of the modern gyroplane, who designed it and first called it gyrocopter. The planes were first designed by a Spanish nobleman named Juan de la Cerva in 1923 to replace the unsafe World War I fixed wing bomber. The Pit cairn model was further devel oped in the late 1920s in the United States to deliver mail as pilots could land and take off from the tops of post offices. Amelia Earhart was one of the early pilots who flew these air craft and set an auto-gyrocopter altitude record of 18,300 feet, which stood for many years. Benson created the gyro copter, which he called every mans flying machine in the 1950s. He has been an honored guest at Bensen Days events prior to his death in 2000. A world record was set in Wauchula during Bensen Days in 1998 by Denver physician Bill Clem, a specialist in high al titude rescues. Clem set a high altitude record here of 24,463 feet in his open-cockpit rotor craft, a feat witnessed by an official from the National Aeronautic Association and later certified as a world record by the international aeronautical board headquartered in France. In recent years the increase in European models and availability of thrifty aviation has brought more and more innovations to the rotorcraft and ex panding their usefulness beyond recreational activity. Locally, most enthusiasts come to pro mote rotorcraft education, safety and comradery among vendors, builders, pilots and the public, which is welcome to visit. 1849.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A Aviles Stone Hernandez-CervantesStaton Jackson Winslow Drug Dealers Unwelcome In Hardee County By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Whether traffic stops, following tips or just plain surveil lance, local law enforcement officers are proactive in efforts to reduce drug traffic in Hardee County. A half dozen arrests late last week is a good example. Sheriffs Office and Wauchula police officials agree. We are continuing to take drug users and dealers off the street, said Sheriffs Maj. Randy Dey on Tuesday afternoon. Wauchula Lt. Matthew Whatley has the same thought. We are definitely keeping a close eye on drug activity in the city. Just because it seems someone is getting away with something doesnt mean were not watch ing. In one Wauchula event on Fri day about 2:06 a.m., an altercation at Primos Bar on U. S. 17 South led to the arrest of Fulgen cio Aviles, 33, of 1823 Rigdon Rd., Wauchula. According to Whatley, a de scription of a vehicle leaving Primos bar was broadcast and it was shortly observed on northbound U.S. 17 and stopped by Ofc. Jesse Poole. The suspect gave permission for a search. A pants pocket contained clear plastic bags normally used for possession of methamphetamine or other drugs. Further search allegedly showed 22 small clear plastic bags with some form or other of opium or its derivative or co caine. Because of the large amount of baggies, charges in cluded possession of opium or its derivative with intent to sell and possession of cocaine with intent to sell as well as possession of drug paraphernalia. Whatley also related another incident. The previous day, Poole also happened to be the officer who conducted a routine traffic stop about 2:28 a.m. at Main Street and King Road. The dri ver, Christopher Andrew Stone, 38, of 311 Kenyon Ave., Wauchula, allowed search of his truck, in which were located a glass pipe, straw, scale, a plastic container with baggies of a substance which tested positive for methamphetamine. Stone was charged with pos session of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. When he arrived at the jail, warrants were served charging him with possession of methamphetamine, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. Four men were arrested on Thursday by Sheriffs officers and face a variety of charges, said Dey, all part of ongoing efforts to curtail drug use. The first came as the result of a traffic stop on West Main Street near Airport Road, when Dep. Steven Ahrens saw a white truck pulling a trailer with no lights on it. After stopping it, Ahrens checked and could locate no drivers license for the driver, Hector Hugo Hernandez-Cervantes, 38, of 191 Second St., E., Zolfo Springs. According to the arrest report, Hernandez-Cervantes attempted to conceal items in his right hand looking like drug para phernalia, which later were confirmed as a plastic pipe with white residue, a clear plastic bag which also had white residue and tin foil with burn marks and residue. All three tested positive for methamphetamine, said the police report. Hernandez was charged with possession of methampheta mine, possession of drug para phernalia and no valid license. He was held on $1,750 bond. The other three arrests came between 9:20 and 10:57 p.m. when individuals were picked up by members of the Drug Task Force after exiting a reputed drug area, said Dey. T he first arrested was Michael James Staton, 21, of 801 N. Clermont Ave., Fort Meade, who was allegedly driving with an expired tag on a vehicle in which he was a passenger. About to be searched, he allegedly stuffed a baggie in his mouth, which later was deter mined to contain 4.1 grams of methamphetamine. Other items in his possession allegedly were numerous zip lock baggies with drug residue. He was charged with possession of methamphetamine, tamper ing/destroying evidence and possession of drug paraphernalia and was detained in lieu of $2,500 bail. The last two suspects who were arrested were in the same vehicle, which was allegedly stopped for speeding on U.S. 17 South. The driver, Alvin Dale Jackson, 22, of 611 E. Summit St., Wauchula, was searched and drug paraphernalia located which also tested positive for methamphetamine residue. On pretrial release with specific conditions, Jackson was jailed without bail for violating them. He was also charged with pos session of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia. The vehicles passenger, Joseph Bradley Winslow, 27, of 802 Alabama St., Wauchula, was allegedly observed at-tempting to hide a crystalline scale with residue which tested positive. He was also charged with pos session of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia, with bonds of $1,500.

6A The Herald-Advocate, March 20, 2014 Dade City resident Richard Cl inton now holds the record for catching the largest brown bullhead catfish on rod and reel in Florida waters, according to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission. On Feb. 12, Clinton was crap pie fishing with his cousin on Lake Iola, a privately owned lake in Pasco County. At 9:30 a.m., something big latched onto his live minnow in 32 feet of water. When the fish surfaced, they saw that it was a huge brown bullhead. I was surprised at how strong the fish pulled once I hooked it, Clinton said. It fought harder than a seven-pound bass I also caught. T he astonished Clinton believed his fish weighed signifi cantly more than the existing state record, so he contacted FWC freshwater fishery biolo gist Eric Johnson at the agencys Lakeland regional office. The next day, Johnson offi cially certified the fish as a new state record brown bullhead. The fish weighed 7.02 pounds and was 22.25 inches in length with a girth of 15.5 inches. Unbelievably, it was just a few ounces shy of the world record. The previous state record was a 5.72-pound brown bullhead caught by Robert Bengis on Cedar Creek in Duval County in 1995. P er FWC state record fish cer tification rules, fish must be legally caught using active hook-and-line methods by an angler with a valid Florida fishing license or who is exempt from license requirements. A FWC biologist must verify the species and weigh it on a certified scale. I knew I had a big fish, Clinton said. Im glad I was recognized for catching a state record brown bullhead. Brown bullhead catfish are native to the eastern United States and are similar in appearance to the yellow bullhead. According to the International G ame Fish Association, the world record brown bullhead is a seven-pound, six-ounce fish that Glenn Collacuro caught from Mahopac Lake in New York on Aug. 1, 2009. The FWC also recognizes anglers who catch a memorablesize fish by giving them a Big Catch certificate. These certificates are issued for 33 different species of freshwater fish and are subject to less stringent guidelines than for record fish, allowing anglers to be recog nized if the fishs weight or length exceeds minimum stan dards. Catfish Hooks State Record getting the money. I DA Executive Director Bill Lambert told the board at its meeting last week there was no urgency to approve the contract but he wanted to go through the agreement so members could express their concerns and mod ify the document. Currently the board is work ing to include a provision that would require some or all of the money to be repaid if the com pany was sold and or moved out of the county within a few to several years after getting the additional funding. Continuum could also earn credits towards the $9.25 mil lion for creating additional jobs over and above the required 40. After a lengthy discussion from board members with Lambert and IDA attorney Ken Evers to give direction, the meeting was continued until April 1 at 8:30 a.m. to continue working on the contract. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee County Industrial Development Authority continues to work out contract language that would give tech nology startup Continuum Labs an additional $2 million in economic development funds. If approved, it would bring the boards investment in the company to $9.25 million since 2011. The new funding would come in two $1 million payments that would be made in October of this year and May 2015. The money would be contingent upon Continuum Labs rais ing $3 million in private capital and establishing a minimum of 36 jobs by October to get the first million. In order to get the second $1 million, Continuum must come up with an additional $2 million in private capital and have a minimum of 40 total jobs before IDA Continues Continuum Con tract Talks cluding 200 in Hardee County, w ill be absorbed into Mosaics operations, said Mo-saic spokesman Bob Nelson. Mosaic President and CEO James Prokopanko said the merger will provide the com pany with increased operating efficiencies, lower production costs and reduced capital investment. The company originally planned to invest $1 billion developing the proposed Ona mine and will now spend approxi mately $500 million to upgrade the former CF beneficiation plant in Fort Green. The addition of these new phosphate assets further solidi fies Mosaics position among the largest, most efficient and lowest cost phosphate producers in the world, Prokopanko said. Mosaic also plans on devel oping the Desoto mine and ex panding its Wingate mine in the future. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Mosaic Company has completed its acquisition of CF Industries phosphate assets after it was granted regulatory ap proval from the U.S. Department of Justice. In the deal, Mosaic will ac quire 25,000 acres of land and a beneficiation plant in Hardee County, a phosphate manufac turing facility in Plant City and an ammonia terminal and warehouse at the Port of Tampa. Mosaic paid CF $1.2 billion in cash and an additional $200 million to fund the companys cost of long-term care, monitoring and closure of CFs phosphogypsum stacks. Mosaics annual production capacity is now expected to be more than 11 million tons after adding the 1.8 million tons of phosphate fertilizer CF was pro ducing annually.

In September, the na tional average price for a gallon of regular unleaded peaked at $3.59. Sunday, the average price was $3.52. "Prices usually peak in the spring," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. It would not be a surprise to see a continued up ward trend throughout the next 30 days. In Spring 2011, the national average price for a gallon of reg ular unleaded peaked in May at $3.98. The peak price was $3.94 in April 2012 and $3.78 in February 2013. Historically, prices in March have risen 22 cents in 2011 and 19 cents in 2012. Last year, prices fell 13 cents throughout the month after an unusual February peak. Typical spring factors are to blame for the price hike including seasonal maintenance and the fuel blend switch. Rising de m and also becomes a factor with Spring Break and daylight sav ings time, which offers motorists an extra hour to run errands. The price of oil was influ enced by factors including a report from the International Energy Agency which calls for higher than expected global oil demand, based on economic growth. The market is also nerv ous as the U.S. and European Union are threatening sanctions against Russia. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.52, 3 cents more than last week. Florida's average of $3.54 rose 8 cents from last week.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate After a rainout on Mar. 6, the Hardee track and field teams had back-to-back meets in High lands County and set up some good numbers. In the past two meets we have had a lot of personal records and some exciting races. Last night in Sebring, Adam Ramirez vaulted 11-0, where his previous best was 9-6 that is a tremendous im-provement in that event. Tristen Lanier is re ally running strongly in his 400s in the open and in relays, and we have had a lot of other kids step up in relays to produce some exciting finishes. Alllison Smith has been throwing quite well, breaking 100 in the discus, Robert Torres has as well, said Head Coach Rob Beatty on Friday.

Trouble is, when I lifted the stove lid to clean it, there was about an inch of greasy grime and rust. It's impossible to get completely clean, and I'm kind of worried about a grease fire starting. What can I do to get my stove back in shape? Clara in Tampa, Fla. A: Talk to your apartment manager or landlord. While tenants are expected to keep the apartment's appliances clean, it's neither fair nor safe to deal with a stove that is unreasonably dirty. The manager may counter that you accepted the apartment with the appliances listed in good working condition, but I know very few people who have the time or wherewithal to pry open the stove hood and check the burners underneath during a tour or a final walk-through. Review your apartment lease. In managed communities these usually comply with what's re quired by state and municipal tenant/landlord laws, and it gives you an idea of how much the management is willing to do in this case. At the very least, insist that the manager help you clean the stove. That doesn't mean buying you a can of oven cleaner; it means sending a maintenance person to assess the situation and find a safe way to clean it, or scheduling a contractor to clean and maintain the appliance. If the stove is too difficult to clean, if it's rusting through or otherwise not in safe condition, most leases allow the manage ment to replace it with an accept able appliance. If the manager agrees to do this, get that pledge in writing along with an approximate date that the appliance will be replaced. What if the manager or land lord refuses to do any of these things? Look up your state's statute by typing tenant/landlord law and the name of your state in a search engine box. The land lord may or may not be required to maintain or replace certain ap pliances. That said, you can accomplish a heck of a lot just by being polite and working with the man ager or landlord to find a solution. It's hard to react nega tively to a tenant asking, "Hey, I want to keep my apartment clean and I need some help getting the stove up to snuff, can you help?" Although there are some nightmare landlords out there, most like keeping the value of their properties up and appreciate tenants helping to keep them there. HOME TIP: To clean a stubborn stain from a standard (enamel) stovetop, mix equal amounts of table salt, baking soda and water (about a tablespoon each) and scrub the mix ture over the stain with a soft cloth.

This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta A ritual dating back millions of ye ars takes place again this spring on Florida beaches. Spring marks horseshoe crabs mating season, and biologists with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) want the pub lics help identifying spawning sites. Beachgoers will likely have the best luck spotting mating horseshoe crabs around high tide, just before, during or after a new or full moon. The conditions around the full moon this Sunday, March 16, and the new moon on March 30 will create ideal opportunities to view the spawning behavior of horseshoe crabs. Mating crabs pair up, with the smaller male on top of the larger female. Other male crabs may also be present around the couple. Beachgoers lucky enough to spot horseshoe crabs are asked to note how many they see and whether the horseshoe crabs are mating. If possible, the observer should also count how many horseshoe crabs are mat ing adults and how many are juveniles (4 inches wide or s maller). In addition, biologists ask observers to provide the date, time, location, habitat type and envi ronmental conditions such as tides and moon phase when a sighting occurs. The FWC asks the public to report sightings through one of several options. Go to MyFWC.com/Contact and go to Horseshoe Crab Nesting Activ ity for the Submit a Horseshoe Crab Survey link, then select Florida Horseshoe Crab Spawning Beach Survey. You can also report findings via email at horseshoe@MyFWC.com or by phone at 866-252-9326. The survey program began in April 2002. Through 2013, the FWC has received 2,831 reports from across Florida. Horseshoe crabs, often called living fossils, are an important part of the marine ecosystem. Their eggs are a food source for animals. Birds, such as red knots, rely on horseshoe crab eggs to fuel their long migra tions to nesting grounds.

During public comment, a Limestone resident approached the board about the school bus route. She wanted to know why the bus did not pick up children closer to their homes. She said children have to walk down an unsafe path to get to their bus stop. She was worried about what could happen to her grandchild, who goes to HJH, and the other children who also take the same route. She says the bus picking up elementary children passes closer to their homes, but that the same route is not taken for elementary and high school chil dren. She says she had spoken to staff at the bus garage and others but was not given a definitive an swer. Trevino assured her they would speak to the staff at the bus garage to see what could be done. The next School Board meeting will be on Thursday, March 27, at 5 p.m. in the board meeting room at 230 S. Florida Ave. in Wauchula.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, March 20, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Three wins and a rainout have kept the Hardee Wildcats on the move and racking up victories in the last two weeks. They were scheduled to play back-to-back games early in Spring Break week, at home for a visit from Lake Placid on Monday and at Mulberry on Tuesday. Next weeks games are at Avon Park on Tuesday, fol lowed by a pair of home games, against North Port on Mar. 27 and Lemon Bay on Mar. 28. The month ends with a trip to Lake Placid on Mar. 31. Hardee 9, DeSoto 2 Hardee began its recent win streak with a Mar. 4 visit from district rival DeSoto. The Bulldogs scored one run in the top of the first on an error and RBI sin gle. Hardee responded by put ting a three-spot on the board. Hayden Lindsey led off with a walk and advanced on a Kramer Royal single. He was out on a fielders choice by Kris Johnson. A wild pitch moved both Lind sey and Johnson up 90 feet. A Tyler Hewett hit to left field loaded the bases. With two down, Cody Spencer singled to score his teammates before the third out left Spencer aboard. It was 3-1. Johnson was sharp on the mound, with a ground-out, popup and strikeout retiring the Bulldogs in the top of the sec ond. Hardee also went down one, two, three in the second inning. DeSoto scored with a run in the top of the third on a single, double and wild pitch. It was 32. Hardee left Johnson aboard after he had doubled. Johnson and reliever Garrett Albritton held DeSoto at bay for the rest of the game, while the Wildcats padded their lead. In the fourth, Spencer opened with a double to right field and scored on a David Chevy Dolcater smack deep along the right field line. Dolcater came across home on a Jake Bolin hit and an error. Bolin went to second on the error, third on a Seth McGee sacrifice and home on a Lindsey fielders choice. In the fifth, Hardee notched its win with another trio of tallies. Hewett was safe on an error, Luke Palmer singled up the mid dle and Spencer slapped an RBI double to deep left field. Dol c ater brought Palmer home and a Bolin sacrifice plated Spencer, making the final score 9-2. Hardee 2, Frostproof 1 The Mar. 6 home game against Frostproof was rained out, but the Cats went to Frostproof last Thursday to face the Bulldogs on Mar. 13, coming home with the 2-1 victory. Hardee scored right off the bat, with Lindsey drawing a walk, going to second on a Royal sacrifice, third on a Johnson hit to left center and home on a Spencer sacrifice fly to deep left. It was 1-0. Frostproof left two aboard in the bottom of the first. Both teams either went down in order or left runners stranded for the next five innings. The Bulldogs knotted the score in the bottom of the sixth on a combination of a hit, error and fielders choice. Hardee broke the tie with a seventh inning rally. Royal drew a walk, went to second on a wild pitch, third on a Palmer fielders choice and home on a Dulcater hit to right field. He was stranded but Royals tally was enough for the Wildcat 2-1 win when Frostproof batters went down in order on a ground-out and pair of strikeouts in the home half of the seventh to end the game Hardee 2, Sebring 1 The Wildcats hosted the Blue Streaks on Friday night and pulled out a 2-1 win. Sebring got its lone score in the top of the first on a Jordan Austin triple followed by hit by Seth Canady and Matt Portis, who were stranded when Wild cat soph Spencer struck out the last two batters of the inning. Hardee tied the game in the home half of the first. Lindsey was safe on an error and ended up on third on another error, scoring on a Royal RBI sacrifice to make it a 1-1 game. It was a pitching duel for the next three innings. Hardee got the winning run in the bottom of the fifth. Palmer was safe on an error, went to second on a wild pitch, third on a Bolin sacrifice and home on Lindsey RBI sac rifice fly to center field. A pair of Sebring strikeouts and a ground-out preserved the Wildcats third consecutive win.

SWEET READING PHOTO BY JIM KELLY P hysician assistant John Gill of Pioneer Medical Clinic in Wauchula on Wednesday, March 5, spoke to the Hardee Rotary Club at the Java Cafe about health care. He is pres ident of the National Association of Rural Health Clinics. He said health care today is in chaos ... with a tremendous disconnect. The federal government has already been in health care through Medicaid, Medicare and the Veterans Administration and is much more involved through the Affordable Health Care Act. Parts of health care include hospitals, primary care doctors, specialist doctors, medications and home health care. The United States has a great health care system, but it could be better and more efficient.

4B The Herald-Advocate, March 20, 2014 Valerie Shayman, a 2004 H ardee Senior High graduate, has recently been appointed to an exciting new college posi tion. Shayman has been named case manager in the Center for Cura Personalis in the Division of Student Development at Gon zaga University in Spo-kane, Wash. The university is a private, liberal arts Jesuit institu tion founded in 1887, which currently has over 8,000 stu dents enrolled. The field of case management in a university setting emerged after the shooting massacre at Virginia Tech Univer-sity in 2007. Case managers now serve as a senior-level emergency re sponder for Gonzaga. Case managers address the needs of students in crisis, expe riencing personal and academic challenges, which may range from suicidal ideation, mental illness, sexual or physical as sault to eating disorders, family challenges, interpersonal con flicts and financial concerns. Shayman received her bachelors degree in communications from the University of North Florida in 2008 and followed it with a masters in higher education from Virginia Tech Uni-ver sity in 2010. While at Virginia Tech, she was assigned to recovery efforts with the office of the Provost and office of the Dean of Stu dents. In post-graduation, Shayman was employed by BirminghamSouthern College in Birmingham, Ala., as the student advocate and coordinator of res idence life, where she addressed t he needs of students in crisis and oversaw the staff and operations for housing and residence life. Before accepting her current position at Gonzaga, Shayman was employed at the Crisis Cen ter in Birmingham, where she managed a 24-hour, 365-days a year suicide hotline. She se lected, trained and supervised a volunteer staff of 85 and worked with survivors of sexual assault, providing training to community agencies and law enforcement officers on suicide prevention. S hayman has been accepted into the doctoral progam at Gon zaga University, where she will be pursuing her Doctorate of Leadership Studies, starting in June. She stays connected to home through her parents, Bob and Linda Shayman of Wauchula, and enjoys telling her new friends in Washington all about her special hometown and what it is lilke to be a Hardee Wildcat! Hardee Grad Handling Crises Shayman Fort Green News By R illa Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! T he old saying that March comes in like a lion but goes out like a lamb might not be true this year. We are sure having some mighty windy days. The teachers and students are having their spring break and enjoying every minute. Allen and Avie Eures and Kaylee Hogenauer went to one of their favorite destinations, Disney! Charlotte and Mark Hogenauer are planning on going next week to celebrate their wedding an niversary. I dont think there is any remedy for the bug that gets in avocado trees but our big tree in the grove is in the process of dying. There are only one or two limbs still green. I read somewhere that the avocado groves down in Homestead were all dying. I guess this is some of the pesti lence we will have in the last days! Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Mrs. Pauline Walker as she made her final journey March 10. She always loved to read the Fort Green News and as soon as she got her paper on Thursday she read that before any other part of the paper, or that is what she and her son always told me! I considered her a dear friend and if she had lived a little longer she would have made it to 95. I consider 94 a ripe old age as no one in my family history has ever lived beyond 82. Everyone will be pleased to hear Gloria Dupree is well e nough to be transferred to a rehab in Sarasota. Kyle Chancey was added to our prayer list this past Sunday and needs your prayers as well as he is very sick. Others are OC and Angie Coker, Norma Alejandro, Paige Banner bloodied one knee and twisted her ankle when she fell down the steps, and Billy Porter is not doing well. Please pray for all of these. Our men had a breakfast a few Sundays ago and took up a collection for a new yard swing at Resthaven. Randall Davis reported that it was put up Saturday afternoon and he pointed out that the sign on the highway is falling down. Carmen Durrances Mother and nephew, John are visiting from Puerto Rico. They are all enjoying visiting with each other. Maxine Albritton is visiting her daughter Valerie in Alabama. Maxine comes to church and, of course, brings her beautiful Seeing Eye poodle with her. JW Keene enjoyed his first visit to church so much he slept right through it! Kristian and Anita Keene came to church and stayed for OTaters. Addie Son nier looked real cute in her green outfit in honor of St. Patricks Day. At the OTaters meal the tea is green, green sour cream and green cake. It is always good. Our church will celebrate the Lords Supper on April 6. Tara McGaugheys sister, Cha rmain, drove down for a few days and Tara went to South Carolina with her sister, and then on to North Carolina for the memorial service for her brother-in-law. Tara will go on to Kentucky and fly home in about a week. Fort Green Baptist had the parking lot, which is small, repaved and it sure looks nice. Congratulations to Brianna Waters and Holly Brown on being chosen for cheerleaders for the JV Teams at Hardee High. Allie Yeomans graduated with flying colors from the Coast Guard on Feb. 28. ROTC In structor, Lt. Col. Hingle from HHS presented her certificate to her in Cape May, N.J. Of course, Michele, James and Blake were in attendance and they are all proud of Allie. She was only home for a short while before she reported to duty in St. Pe tersburg. She is in Port Security and Water Security. She will go to A school to get further education to drive the 29 Coast Guard boat. She will leave June 2 going to Yorktown, VA. for further training and then back to St. Petersburg where she will be studying and getting her license for paramedics. She will be in the Coast Guard for six years and only home for short periods of time. Our entire neighbor hood is proud of Allie. Pray for each other and our nation.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Congratulations to the Hardee Wildcat nine, which won over DeSoto, Frostproof and Sebring in three solid games recently. The dozen seniors and host of underclassmen are playing effectively under the direction of veteran coach Steve Rewis. The JV boys have had to battle cancellations and infrequent ac tion, losing two games in the last two weeks, but it is still an uphill battle for Coach Travis Tubbs and company to gain some momentum when nearly every other game is cancelled. The Lady Wildcats, meanwhile were off for several days before playing four games in two days in a tourney at Sarasota. The girls beat Braden River, lost by one run to Palmetto and Plant City and had a harder time with Class 8A Strawberry Crest. It turned into a lot of good experience for the Lady Cats. In weightlifting, there is only one more regular-season match on the schedule before the sectional qualifier. Its time to make a move for serious contention in going to state. To date, only senior Joshua Almaraz is unbeaten this season. Despite topping his state-level per formance of a year ago, senior Keyon Brown placed second at a re cent meet. He could qualify and compete at state in his last Wildcat endeavor before heading off for his collegiate football career. The tennis girls are doing well, with a good mixture of seniors and underclassmen in the top five. Results from boys tennis have been unavailable. On the junior high level, its play and learn for the Hardee Junior High volleyball girls. The seventh graders seem to be having more success, perhaps because its a bit less competitive at the younger level. Youth softball got going with a day full of activity on Mar. 8. Pi oneer Restaurant leads the Belles 14-and-under division, and the Angels 10-and-under and the 8-and-under Dixie Darlings have been busy as well.

Sports UpdateBy Joan Seaman LIONFISH: NOT SO SCARY AND DELICIOUS! This column is brought to you by a colleague of mine, Amanda Nalley. Lionfish is a hot topic right now. The population of this invasive non-native species has boomed exponentially in the past few years, and recent scientific studies indicate that this species may be nega tively impacting our marine resources. Today, we are seeing them in places weve never seen them be fore, and there are no signs of them going away anytime soon. As the public information specialist for the FWCs Division of Marine Fisheries Management, it is my job to reach out to the media and sometimes the public with lionfish information. I often get asked questions like, Can you eat them? What do they taste like? How do you filet them without getting stuck by one of their venomous spines? While I knew the answers to the questions, first-hand knowledge often trumps what youve read any day. Last summer I got plenty of first-hand knowledge as I attended the first ever Northeast Florida Lionfish Rodeo in Jacksonville. As the boats began to come in, I, with the help of co-worker Alan Peirce, helped filet lionfish and, later, got to eat some. I admit, I was nervous as I began filleting my first one. Should I wear gloves? What if I get poked? What is the best way to get the meat off the fish? The best thing I learned that day? Its not as scary as it looks. Lionfish have up to 18 spines that have venom. To be clear here, the spines are not hollow like a snakes fangs. Instead, they are more like clear to opaque toothpicks with grooves. If you were to stick yourself, the skin covering the spine would push back, releasing the venom encapsulated in grooves along the spine. The venom is not in the meat of the fish. It is also susceptible to heat, so cooking the fish neutralizes it. The stings are painful, but can be treated with hot, but not scalding, water. When filleting a lionfish, you have quite a few options to keep your hands and fingers safe. My personal favorite was a needle-resistant glove. Using it on my left hand only to hold the fish down, I used my ungloved hand to fillet. Others chose to go gloveless and hold the spines down. Another option that I tried but didnt quite get comfortable with is clipping the spines with scissors. It was an effective method, but we had a lot of lionfish to fillet and it felt timeconsuming. For the most part, once you figure out the spine issue, filleting the fish is easy. It is just like filleting any other fish you catch. While there wasnt much meat on the smaller ones, the effort was worth the return: a delicious, flaky white delicacy. It is not fishy in taste and has a nice consistency. I tried lionfish three ways that night: in a ceviche, fried whole and fillets cooked in a light panko and served with rice and a mango reduction. All three were delicious. More restaurants are starting to serve up lionfish, which can be harvested and sold commercially. But the most rewarding part of being there was getting to talk to the public as they oohed and ahhed over the colorful fish. Some had never seen a lionfish. Many did not even know they were a prob lem in Floridas waters. Gone Coastal By Alan PeirceFish & Wildlife CommissionThe rodeo was a success, with more than 400 lionfish removed from the waters near Jacksonville. The largest was 17 inches and the smallest, a mere 3.5 inches. With the current best method of control being removal via nets or spearing devices, these grassroots efforts are one of the best means of limiting the population. In 2012, in an effort to encourage the public to participate in lionfish-control efforts, the FWC removed the requirement to have a recreational license when using specific gear to target lionfish, in cluding hand-held nets, pole spears, Hawaiian slings and any device geared specifically for lionfish. The FWC also removed any and all bag limits on lionfish. This column hopes to help recreational anglers understand complex saltwater regulations and learn more about saltwater fishing oppor tunities. Alan Peirce is available to answer questions by phone or email anytime. Contact the Fish & Wildlife Commissions Regulatory Outreach subsection at (850) 487-0554 or e-mail Alan.Peirce@MyFWC.com. One more property tax exemption deadline is fast approaching! Business owners that are involved in a partnership, proprietor ship, corporation or are a self-employed agent or contractor, must file a tangible personal property tax return with our office by April 1st. Property owners who lease, lend or rent property must also file a return. If you accept compensation for services provided and use any type of equipment with that service, then you are required to file (photographers, auto detail services, rental businesses, cosme tologists, jewelry businesses, etc). Florida law provides that busi nesses who timely file their tax returns will receive an exemption in the amount of $25,000 this could save business owners up to $630.00 in taxes. If the value of your tangible personal property is less than $25,000 as of January 1st this year and you have filed a tax return in previous years, you should have received a notice in the mail ad vising you that you will not need to file a return. However, if you have never filed a return with our office or if the value of your prop erty exceeds $25,000, property owners are required to file a return. If a tax return is not filed with our office, a 25% penalty will be ap plied to your tax bill and no property tax exemption will be granted. If you are unsure whether or not you are required to file a return with our office, please contact us at 863/773-2196. All Tangible Personal Property returns must be filed by April 1st in order to receive the exemption and avoid a penalty.

Inside Out B y Chip Ballard THE BEST OF BOBBY GOLDSBORO F lorida native Bobby Goldsboro is the most versatile, multitalented musician, artist, writer, performer and producer in show business. But where has he been? Ive been working, harder than Ive ever worked in my life, he told me the day I interviewed him after a concert at Cypress Gardens. When filming of the final episode of the highly acclaimed TV show for children, Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon, was completed Goldsboro made his first live appearance in 18 years. That sold-out performance in China was the first of a series of concerts in selected locations around the world. Goldsboros concert schedule is posted on his website, bobbygoldsboro.com. Also posted there are samples of his Florida landscape paintings, which he is under contract to do more of between TV shows and tour dates. Goldsboro began his career in the early 1960s as a guitarist for Roy Orbison. During his Orbison years he traveled all over the world and toured with the Beatles. In 1964 Goldsboro wrote and recorded See the Funny Little Clown, the first in a long string of hit records. In 1968 he recorded Honey, which became the largest-selling record in the world. In the s Goldsboro hosted his own nationally syndicated TV show that ran for three seasons. The show was so successful Goldsboro became a sought-after guest on the television talk-show circuit. During those years he also formed House of Gold Music, which became one of the most successful music publishing companies in Nashville. A prolific songwriter, Goldsboro has received 27 BMI (Broadcast Music Industry) awards. Celebrities such as John Denver, Aretha Franklin, Paul Anka, Dolly Parton, Bette Midler and more have recorded his compositions. His songs With Pen in Hand and Autumn of My Life are members of BMIs exclusive MillionAirs Club, which contains only songs that have been played on the air over one million times. In the mid-s Goldsboro stopped performing, to the consternation of his fans, to devote his time to writing and producing childrens stories. Easter Egg Mornin premiered as an animated Easter special on the Disney Channel and was licensed for worldwide distribution. Easter Egg Mornin also premiered as a 36page color read-along book and audiocassette from Goldsboros Kid Rhino Story series. Goldsboros animated Halloween story, Lumpkin the Pumpkin, followed Easter Egg Mornin. For two seasons Goldsboro was the sole music provider (writer, producer and performer) on his buddy Burt Reynolds hit TV series, Evening Shade. Goldsboro wrote and performed every piece of music on the show, including the theme song. At the close of the 1993 season Goldsboro was awarded a BMI award for Evening Shade, a first for the series. After Evening Shade Goldsboro created two more animated shows, but he is particularly proud of Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon. Designed for children 2 to 6 years of age, Swamp Critters deals with issues such as cooperation, prejudice and pollution. Each episode teaches lessons in self-esteem and decision-making. Children are exposed to a variety of music styles, including blues, rock 'n' roll, country, Dixieland, Cajun, and classical, all performed by Goldsboro. Everything you hear on Swamp Critters is Goldsboro. Every character, every voice, every instrument in the orchestra, every back ground singer everything is Goldsboro. He writes every script and produces every show. He helped design a system where he controls the mouth movements of each character. Swamp Critters of Lost Lagoon was awarded the seal of approval by the Dove Foundation, which identifies and promotes qual ity programs suitable for family viewing. It also received the recommended seal of approval from Parents Choice and was featured in a New York Times Magazine roundup of new, educational FCC (Federal Communications Commission) kid-friendly pro grams. In a business notorious for chewing up and spitting out its great est heroes, Bobby Goldsboro has come through unscathed, as healthy and wholesome as the clean-cut country boy he was in the halcyon days of rock 'n' roll when he played lead guitar for Roy OrCOURTESY PHOTO C hip Ballard with Bobby Goldsboro following Goldsboros 2011 concert at Cypress Gardens.

He is the only Wildcat weightlifter to excel consistently against the strong opposition of Sebring, Lake Placid and DeS oto. Its good preparation for the upcoming sectional qualifying meet at Avon Park on April 8. Some will advance to the sec tionals and, hopefully, the state meet at Kissimmee on April 25. Before then, the final regular season meet is at always strong Bartow on April 1. The Cats didnt go to the Frostproof meet on Saturday. Four of them placed in the top three at the Sebring meet on Mar. 11. Almaraz claimed first in his 154-pound weight class. Another senior, Keyon B rown, whose previous best this season was 620, combined the lift and clean & Jerk for a 640 total and still placed second overall. He finished sixth in the state last season with a 635 total. Also, last Tuesday, another pair of Wildcat seniors did well. James Greene placed second in the 238 pound weight and Omar Santiago placed third in the 169pound class. Others on the 2014 weightlifting team are Levi Boyette, Tyler Bragg, Jarett Carlton, Parker Carlton, Alex Clarke, Noah Coronado, Blake Crawley, German Figueroa, Dalton Forrester, Tomas Gomez, Jose Gonzales, Nick Johnson, Daniel Kalinuk, Hector Lopez, Blaiaine Molitor, Ryan Ramirez, Jeremy Reyna, Jonathan tucker, Kevin White and Richard Yang.

The older I get, the more I do realize how important what we had all together and how it worked. ... [lifting] each other to this place that you can't get to alone. I think that's probably the biggest chemistry thing I recognize now." And Journey's founder, Neal Schon, wrote on his Facebook page recently: "I hope we can reach out to each other and connect once again. We had amazing chemistry together.

Celebrity Ex tra By Cindy Elavsky DEAR PAW'S CORNER: M y 18-month-old Lab mix, "Sadie," is old enough to go camping and hiking with me, but my two usual hiking bud dies aren't sure. They say we won't be allowed to hike many trails with her, and that she'll be a distraction on trips. What do you think? Bill in Franklin, Tenn. DEAR BILL: Bringing your dog along on camping and hik ing trips does take extra preparation and planning, but it can be a blast and an important experi ence for Sadie. If it's important to you, make the case with your friends to bring Sadie along. While many city, state or na tional parks don't allow pets, a large number do allow them, with restrictions that vary de pending on the park. Go online and look up the areas you want to visit this year for their rules regarding pets, or call the park directly. List parks that absolutely don't allow dogs versus those that do allow them. If your friends won't budge about Sadie, it doesn't have to ab solutely be your dog versus them. Plan some outings with your friends, and some outings with Sadie. If you want to camp or hike with a group, plan that with others who are open to bringing Sadie along. If you don't know anyone, look for dogfriendly hiking groups on Meetup.com or at the local camping-supply store's message board. With that said, remember that Sadie needs to be well-behaved and socialized before taking her camping. Conduct obedience training daily and make sure she responds to your commands promptly. You need to be able to call her back from potentially dangerous situations while out hiking. Learn more about train ing Sadie and packing for your dog at REI's website.

10B The Herald-Advocate, March 20, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateAfter an initial rainout, the Hardee Junior High volleyball squads got going with a busy first week. They are off for Spring Break this week, but resume play next Thursday, Mar. 27 with a visit from Heartland Conference opponent DeSoto. A trip to Hill Gustat on Mar. 31, completes the March action. Games continue on Mondays and Thursdays in April, with a visit from Hill-Gustat on April 3 completing the format of play ing each Conference opponent twice. There are seventh grade games at 5:30 and the eighth graders compete about 10 min utes after the first game, usually about 6:30 p.m. Hardee was supposed to start its season at home on Mar. 6 but thunderstorms and threat of heavy wind gusts cancelled the visit from Avon Park to Tuesday, Mar. 11. So, Hardee really started its season on Mar. 10 at home against Sebring. The seventh graders put up a battle in a 2624 overtime loss in the first game against Sebring. Jarisa Lindsey had seven service points and Chasity Flores added a half dozen. Hardee came back to win game two 25-17 with Sarah Carlton scoring eight service points and Rachel St. Fort getting the game winner. The third game, which usually goes to a maximum of 15 points, went to 17-15 before Sebring got the necessary two-point advantage for the 17-15 win, and the best two-of-three match win. The first eighth grade game was another barn-burner, with Sebring getting the 26-24 win in which is usually a 25-point game. Destinee Jackson scored seven service points to lead Hardee. Sebring also won game two, and the match, 25-14. Mallory Gough scored four points for Hardee. The Hardee seventh graders won in straight sets in last Tuesdays rescheduled home games against Avon Park. The first game was by a 25-7 margin, with Amari DeLeon getting the first seven Hardee points, Sarah Carlton, Ashley Patterson and Lindsey adding four apiece and Claire Carlton getting the final four. Hardee won the second game 25-16, behind the heavy scoring of Patterson, who had the first 14 and last two service points. Avon Park came back to take the eighth grade games 25-4 and 25-10. In its final series of the week, Hardee went to Lake Placid on Thursday. The seventh graders lost he first game 25-15 with DeLeon getting four service points. Hardee bounded back to win the second game 25-17, with Claire Carlton scoring eight points, including the game winner. Hardee won the third game 15-8 and took its first match victory.

Other eighth graders are Hope Elliot, Denise Garza, Alexis Juarez, Adelina Luna, Alexis McBride, Karley Owens, Ellie Palmer and Joley Pleger. HJHS Volleyball Competitive By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateThey finally got two consecutive games on the field. The Hardee JV Wildcats played a pair of home games last week, the first time they have gotten both scheduled games played. They were previously four of eight in even playing scheduled games. Last week, it was a pair of top opponents in their sights as they lost 7-5 to Sebring on Monday and 9-3 to Frostproof on Thursday. Although it was Spring Break for most high school students, the Hardee JV played at Avon Park on Tuesday. They practice while other teams are on Spring Break next week, and resume action Mar. 28 at Lemon Bay. Then, its a trip to Avon Park on Mar. 31, a visit from DeSoto on April 3 and a trip to Lake Wales to finish the season on April 10. Sebring 7, Hardee 5 Hardee hosted Sebring on Mar. 10, giving up three runs in the first inning on a single and three doubles. Hardee left the bases jammed with Brandon Franks, Russell Weems and Aaron Harrison. Blue Streaks batters went down in order in the second inning. Hardee tied the game in the home half of the second. With one away, Isaac Flores sin gled to right field. Kyle Choate drew a walk and both trotted home on a Carlos Camacho dou ble to deep left and an ensuing error. Camacho came home on an error on a Brandon Franks hit. It was 3-3. Sebring added a two-spot in the top of the third on a triple and pair of doubles. Hardee left Wyatt Zeigler on base. In the fourth, Sebring picked up its final pair of scores on a pair of walks, an error and a sac rifice. It was 7-3. Hardee held the Streaks score less in the top of the sixth inning and attempted a big comeback. Flores started it with a walk and advanced on a wild pitch. With two down, Ryan Moore drew a walk. A Franks hit to deep right field brought one home and a Weems double to left got Moore home. Franks and Weems were left on base with the potential tying runs when the third out oc curred. Frostproof 9, Hardee 3 A half dozen errors led to the home game loss to the Frostproof junior Bulldogs last Thursday. The junior Bulldogs left the bases loaded in the top of the first. After a pair of strikeouts, Franks singled and raced home on Weems double to give Hardee the 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning. In the second frame, it was four up, three down for Frostproof, while Harrison doubled and was caught stealing in the home half of the inning. Frostproof tied the score and forged ahead 2-1 in the top of the third on a fielders choice, single and pair of fielders choices. Hardee left Franks stranded. On to the fourth, which left one Bulldog stranded after he walked. Hardee evened the game with a run by Moore, who had walked and advanced on a Keith Choate sacrifice and scored on a Kyle Choate hit up the middle. It was 2-2. The young Bulldogs broke the game loose in the fifth inning with seven runs on a variety of walks and Wildcat miscues. It was 9-2. Hardee got its final tally in the home half of the sixth, and final, inning. Moore again walked, ad vanced on a Keith Choate hit up the middle and went to third when Harrison drew a walk. A fielders choice on a Kyle Choate hit allowed Moore to score his second run of the game. JV Wildcats Battling Hard Our wedding was not really that much, but 10 years later we had one great heck of a divorce. I was so smart in school that I got a seniors discount in the lunch room. Before falling in love, check with family and friends first, for then you might change your mind. Surprisingly, it has never taken a brain to wag a tongue. This has been a public service message. I was a guest speaker last night at a local bar. I was very warmly received. They doused me with lighter fluid, and some drunk lit a match. My cousin Morphus was attending flight school to become an airline pilot, but they kicked him out because he took a crash course. This recently married teenager was trying to impress her friend Mary Lou with how much she knows about doing the laundry. She said, Mary Lou, I always use plenty of bleach when I am drying Marks shirts. They say that Hell has no fury like a woman scorned. But excuse me, I thought a woman scorned was Hell. You are right. Bill is no yes man. All I have ever heard him say is yes sir and no sir. Once when I was about 8 years old, Daddy let me drive his Model-A Ford. I asked him, where would you like me to drive you? He said just follow your nose. I said Daddy, we dont have that much gas. Have you ever seen a woman go by driving a hearse? Truman A.

C The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, March 20, 2014 PAGE ONE By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Every great scientist started off by asking one question and having the determination to find an answer. In Hardee County, there are several students who have questions and are taking it into their own hands to come up with an answer. Recently, science lovers from Hardee Senior High and Hardee Junior High headed to the Heartland Regional Science and Engineering Fair and dis played their scientific findings. Superintendent David Durastanti is proud of the participat ing students and how well they did at the fair. In a release, he mentioned that of the 12 spots in the junior division going to the Florida State Science and Engineering Fair, five are from HJH.

March 20, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I h ave tinnitus. It sounds like roaring in my head. I take gabapentin for it. Do you know of anything else for it? E.A. ANSWER: You have an affliction that would drive me crazy tinnitus, a constant noise in one or both ears or the head that people describe in a variety of ways as ringing, whistling, buzzing, hissing or roaring. An estimate of the number of Americans suffering from tinnitus (TIN-uh-tiss or tuh-NITE-iss) is somewhere between 16 million and 60 million. Tinnitus mostly happens to older people whose hearing is di minishing. Why tinnitus arises in them is explained by the fact that head noises are generated con stantly. Outside noise entering the ears obliterates these internal noises. When deafness ap proaches, the volume of external noises greatly lessens, and the in ternal noises then become promi nent and nerve-racking. If your hearing is growing dimmer, a hearing aid will help you hear more clearly and will dampen your tinnitus. Other causes of tinnitus are as banal as a wax impaction in the eardrum, something easily taken care of by the family doctor. Drugs like aspirin and the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines (Aleve, Advil, Motrin) can bring on tinnitus if they are constantly used. If a cause cannot be deter mined, then other approaches have to be taken. A bedside radio tuned to a station that plays the kind of music you like can re duce the volume of tinnitus. Nighttime is the worst time for it. Tinnitus maskers, devices worn like a hearing aid, emit a constant sound that dulls tin nitus. Do get in touch with the American Tinnitus Association. It will provide you with a wealth of in formation on tinnitus and its treatments. You can reach the association online at www.ata.org. If you don't have a computer, surely a friend, neighbor or relative does and can hook you up with the as sociation. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please discuss liver cysts. Two CT scans, taken years apart, revealed two liver cysts. I was told not to be concerned. Should I be? B.S. ANSWER: Since scans have become so routinely a part of medical practice, liver cysts are seen quite frequently. Most liver cysts neither cause pain nor upset liver function. No one is sure why they form. Unless they are large or are causing symptoms, they can be left alone. Trouble-making liver cysts do exist. Some parasite infections cause them. Those cysts almost always produce symptoms that call for treatment. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I recently read several articles about the use of foodgrade hydrogen perox ide. I am interested in using it for prostate and urinary tract problems. Are there real benefits from it? J.C. ANSWER: Concentra tions of 1.5 percent hydro gen peroxide are used by some as a mouthwash and at 1.5 per cent to 3 percent as a wound cleaner. The same doses are used to remove wax from the ear canal. I can't find any confirmation of the benefit of using food-grade hydrogen peroxide for prostate or urinary tract problems. I would not encourage you to use it. Food grade is a very high con centration. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights Reserved Good Health D D o o n n o o h h u u e e By Dr. Paul G. Donohue To Yo ur By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Lady Wildcat softball did well in a varsity-only weekend tournament in Sarasota in which the local Class 5A girls contended with their counterparts from Class 7A and Class 8A schools. The Lady Cats fashioned one win, lost a pair of one-run games and gave up only one shutout. They will have soft prac tices during this Spring Break week, but take to the road on Friday night for a JV/varsity double-header at Lakeland at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. Next week is a busy threegame week, with a visit from Okeechobee on Monday, a trip to Sebring on Tuesday and visit from Lemon Bay on Friday. Hardee eked out a 1-0 victory over the Lady Manta Rays on Feb. 28 and hope to take another district win. April starts with a Thursday game at district rival DeSoto on the third and a home varsityonly game against Lakeland on April 4 for Senior Night, when Karlee Henderson, Addison Aubry and Arissa Camel will be honored. Hardee 9, Braden River 1 Hardee was the home team last Friday against Braden River of Bradenton, which left one runner stranded in the top of the first. Hardee likewise left one runner aboard. The Lady Pirates left another runner on base in the top of the second, while the Lady Cats picked up their first score. Makayla Deuberry walked, went to second on a Henderson sacrifice and raced home on an Alex U llrich hit to right field. It was 1-0. Braden River got its only tally in the top of the third on a hit batsman, error and single to knot the game at 1-0. Hardee batters were retired in order. Pitcher Henderson held Braden River at bay for the rest of the game while the Lady Cats went about piling up runs. In the top of the fourth, it was Kendall Gough opening with a double to left center and advancing on a Kim Derringer sacrifice. Deu berry drew a walk. A Henderson double to left field got two runners home and an Ullrich and passed ball brought Henderson home. It was 4-1. Two more Lady Wildcat runners came home in the fifth in ning. Hannah Carlton was safe on an error and raced in on an other Gough double. She came in on a Deuberry double to make it 6-1. The final trio of Hardee runs came in the sixth. Ullrich, Aubry and Jakayshat Lindsey all drew walks, circling the bases and coming home on a Carlton longrange hit and Morgan Walters sacrifice. Palmetto 2, Hardee 1 The first game on Saturday morning pitted Hardee against the Palmetto Lady Tigers, who were the visiting team on the scoreboard. Ullrich was on the mound for the Lady Cats and sat the Lady Tigers down in order in the opening inning. Senida Garcia singled for a good start for Hardee. Carlton also singled but both runners were erased on a doubl e play on a Morgan Wal ters hit. A Henderson double also went for naught when the third out occurred. It went back to a pitchers duel in the second and third inning. Palmetto put up a two-spot in the top of the fourth on a walk, error and overthrow. Hardee remained scoreless. The game rocked on, with three up, three down or a runner stranded here and there until the home half of the seventh, when Hardee mounted a rally. With one down, Deuberry singled and Ullrich was safe on an error. An error on a Derringer hit brought Deuberry home but Ullrich was erased on a fielders choice and the third out ended the effort with the 2-1 loss. Strawberry Crest 6, Hardee 0 The Lady Chargers became only the second team this entire season to stop the Lady Wildcats. Hardee was the home team, but could not rally against the strong pitching and fielding of Strawberry Crest. The Chargers plated three runs in the first, two more in the second and a solo homer in the fifth inning en route to its 6-0 win. Plant City 3, Hardee 2 The final game of the tournament for the Lady Wildcats was against the Plant City Raiders, which won 3-2. Again, Hardee was the visiting team on the scoreboard. Plant City got on the board first, with a pair of walks and double putting one run on the board in the top of the first, before Lady Cat hurler Garcia got her rhythm. Hardee got on the board to tie the game in the top of the sec ond. Henderson doubled, went to third on a Deuberry hit to right field. Henderson was erased on a Derringer fielders choice, but she came across home on a Sara Welch hit to make it 1-1. The Lady Raiders forged ahead in the home half of the third on an error, fielders choice and overthrow to lead 2-1. That score held up until the top of the sixth, when Hardee again tied the game. Ullrich led off with a triple, had to hold on a Garcia bunt and came home on a Henderson single before the third out left the teams knotted 2-2. Plant City was able to get a runner home in the last half of the seventh. With one away, an error and single allowed the winning run to score and give the Lady Raiders the 3-2 win. It was really good experience for us to go against teams from other schools. Going against 7A and 8A schools was good for us and we played four good games, commented Hardee Head Coach Caitlyn Bliss. Lady Cats Challenge The Best DETECTING DEPRESSI ON WITH COMPUTER TABLET The day might come when you show up at your doctor's office for an appointment, hand over your ID card and you're handed back an iPad tablet or similar electronic device. You'll be asked to answer questions on the screen. Researchers at King's College London teaching hospital in the U.K. used these devices in their study into whether patients with physical illnesses also had depression. They determined that as many as 30 percent of those with long-term conditions had some type of mental-health concerns as well. The electronic gadgets were a frontline means of screening. The results were instantaneous, and it meant better recognition of patient concerns, as well as actions being taken to address those concerns once the patient got in to see the doctor. In the study, the sets of questions on the device could be geared to the patient's medical condition, such as heart disease or chronic pain, and covered areas such as adherence to treatm ent plans, alcohol use and quality of life, as well as depres sion. The results varied, depending on the illness, but the questions gave doctors information that might not come out in a short of fice visit. The information could be compared from one visit to the next. The Patient Health Questionnaire (PHQ-9) also was used in an Australian study, but with a different slant: This research focused on whether doctors in different countries were good at spotting depression. Italy and the Netherlands had good scores; the U.S. and Australia did not. So if you're handed an electronic device and asked to put in your answers, do it. It might reveal some information that your doctor isn't likely to spot on his own.
