By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Seven people were arrested late last week in on-going effortsto curtail drug use in HardeeCounty. Jerry Mendez, Paulos Chale Amogene and Angela Newmanface charges which include drugtrafficking, while MatthewDwayne Taylor, Darlene HughesKing, Shane Dylan Shepherdand Michael Leon Holland werecharged with sale or possessionof illegal drugs. Law enforcement officers from the Drug Task Force (DTF)of the Hardee County Sheriff’s Office and officers fromWauchula and Bowling Greenhave increased their responses toreported drug activity. “It’s part of our continued ef fort to be extremely proactive.When drug users or sellers are injail, they’re not stealing fromyour home or car to have moneyfor drugs,” commented Sheriff’sspokesman Maj. Randy Dey. “People like this need a drug, cigarettes, marijuana, metham phetamine, oxycodone — aform of opium, whatever. Small-time users buy and sell to sup port their habits, but trafficking involves larger amounts, madefrom locally “back-pack” labs orimported,” Dey concluded. DTF has recently added a Wauchula police officer to bettercoordinate investigations in andout of the city limits. COUNTY Acting on information received, DTF began an investiga tion into drug trafficking onEpps Avenue in Bowling Green.Under controlled conditions,arrangements were made to buya pound of methamphetamineand a search warrant. Last Thursday, officers went to the home of 48-year oldMendez, who admitted he hadguns on his property which heknew he shouldn’t as he was aconvicted felon in another state.A national trace verified a con viction in Wisconsin for distri bution of marijuana. Once the search began, Mendez allegedly refused any othercomments. The search of the home pro duced a large quantity of illegaldrugs in various rooms, includ ing 74 grams of cocaine; 774grams of methamphetamine; aSee TRAFFICKERS 3A A A m m o o g g n n e e M M e e n n d d e e z z ServeYourCountyAnd Get Paid IGABacksAwaySweetbay To Close,B WEATHER DATE HIGH LOW RAIN 03/2665450.0003/2765460.0303/28805n0.000r n 7 n650.34 03/3076580.00 03/3177460.01 04/0184470.00 TOTAL Rainfall to 04/01/2014 8.46Sn T #7 7 nSource: Univ. of Fla.

This weekend Hardee Coun tians have a chance to competein a 5K run/walk at Pioneer Parkthat promises to be much differ ent than any other 5K seen inHardee County. It will be a“color run.” The Hardee Youth Football League wanted this unique raceto come to Hardee County as away to help generate revenue inorder to make improvements tothe Wildcat Den located atHardee Junior High. The color run began as a way for runners to have fun andenjoy running a 5K. It involvesdifferent powdered colors beingthrown on the runners as theyrace. It is known as “the happiest5K on the planet.” At the Hardee County color run, orange and blue colors willbe thrown at runners by playersand cheerleaders from theHYFL. All of the materials usedare biodegradable, so there willbe no harm to the park or the an imals there. Before this race, the HYFL would have held bake sales toraise money, but Director DonnaParks said doing so was “anti-athletic.” She also sees this raceas more interactive and hopesmore people will be interested intaking part in such a fun event. The money raised will be used to install bathrooms at theWildcat Den and, according toParks, just make the facilitynicer. Although it will be a fun race, Parks says it is a race, after all.A timing service from Orlandowill be there making sure all thetimes are correct. Medals will bepresented to the firstand sec ond-place winners in each cate gory. There are nine age divisions ranging from 12-year-olds tothose 70 and older. Those signedup in the race have to get to thepark around 8:30 a.m. to receivea pack which includes their racenumber and a commemorativeT-shirt. Water stations for the runners will be placed around the course.A concession stand will be setup, if bystanders or runSee ‘COLOR RUN’3A PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO 2014 Mr. HHS Kramer Royal.

In the morning,the boys headed to the firingrange on Airport Road to com plete the first event. The seniorshad to shoot at three separate tar gets. Whoever hit the most tar gets was the winner. That afternoon, the boys went to Wildcat Stadium for a rigor ous cross-fit challenge. Trainersfrom the local Battle Heart Fit ness led the boys through exer cises that pushed them to theirlimits.

Kelly’s Column By Jim Jim Wood, 57, of Palmetto Creek Farms in Avon Park grows free range all natural Hereford pigs for high-end r estaurants. This began with his children’s 4-H animal science project. His 30-acre farm raises 450 pigs that eat over a ton of food a day, wrote Eric Pera of the Lakeland Ledger last year. A single hog,dressed and delivered within three days of butcherin g, sells for $625. The Hereford hogs tolerate Florida heat and can thrive outdoors.Clients include Ritz Carlton hotels and fancy cruise ships. Wood experimented in growing six other breeds of pigs before settling on Hereford, prized for its flavor and neutral acidity (pH)in the meat. Many people will pay extra for high quality. Quality isremembered after price is forgotten. The late Wauchula Ford dealer Allen Fritz had a sign in his of fice about quality, price and memory. In essence the sign comparedhigh quality oats before and after they were eaten by a horse. ——— Pacer Marine at the Hardee Commerce Park in Wauchula has about 90 employees and has added a second shift. There are about50 full-time and 40 part-time employees, and about 80 percent livein Hardee County, reports Sheila Federico, purchasing manager. Pacer Marine began operations in Hardee in March 2008 and makes wire harnesses, panels and dashboards for boats, golf cartsand generators. ——— Jim Youmans of the Vandolah community passed away Feb. 18 at the age of 70. Neighbor Chuck Page said he “helped everybody.The word no was not in his vocabulary.” Marcus Shackelford said he was known for his grin, golfing, fishing and the favors he did for people. His family in the past ownedYoumans’ Grocery Store and later the Y Food Store in Wauchula. Wendell Cotton said Youmans was “our friend, a great guy, a former driver’s education teacher at Hardee High School, a coachand mowed everybody’s yard.” He and his wife Diana, a community relations manager at Mo saic, have a son Kerry, who lives in New York and is in public rela tions. Kerry said his father valued the community and would helppeople if their car broke down or the fence needed mending. Niece Cindy Wolfe said Jimmy Youmans was a great son, brother, father and uncle and has been promoted from hero to angel. Shackelford also said Youmans lived a simple life, mostly did what he wanted to do, was in perpetual motion, and was a student,educator, coach, golfer, baseball player, and a Vandolah repairman.“He was competitive and liked to win.” Songs at his funeral Feb. 21 at First Baptist Church of Wauchula included “How Great Thou Art” and “It Is Well With My Soul.” ——— Retired game warden Corvil Justesen said he has given up his honorary title as mayor of Ona and said the new mayor is LouisRoberts. ——— Rev. Robert Roberts, interim pastor of First Baptist Church of Wauchula, recently offered suggestions for the year 2014: “Choosea good attitude, regardless of circumstances. Choose a life of growth.Be teachable. Seek self-development, not comfort. Never be satis fied with the way you are or way things are. Be active for the Lord.” ——— Hardee citrus nursery owner Carl Simmons, 88, recently said swingle has been a popular rootstock. Past popular rootstocks in clude sour orange (which is making a comeback), carizo, cleo andrough lemon. ——— Marshall Gough, 76, of Wauchula passed away Jan. 16 after a brave long fight with cancer. He was very friendly and a long-timesuccessful farmer and rancher. He loved to grow squash and huntquail. He was a member of Oak Grove Baptist Church. His sonJamie and daughter Marsha Fields live in Zolfo Springs. ——— “Wolf to Woof” is the world’s largest and most comprehensive traveling exhibition of the history, biology and evolution of dogs. Itis on display through Sept. 1 at the Florida Museum of Natural His tory at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Dogs can serve ashunters, herders, guards and companions. Admission prices rangefrom $4.50 to $7. ——— As of late last year China, America’s largest forei gn creditor, held 8 percent, or $1.5 trillion, of U.S. Treasury securities, reportedconservative syndicated columnist Cal Thomas. The current U.S.national debt is $17.5 trillion. Thomas said $4 trillion was added to the national debt under President George W. Bush and over $6 trillion since Barack Obamabecame president. States like Florida are required to have a balancedbudget. Congress is not mandated to have a balanced budget. Thefederal annual budget deficit has been coming down the past threeyears as the national economy slowly recovers. In 1982 President Ronald Reagan said the federal government has taken too much tax money from the people, too much authorityfrom the states, and too much liberty with the Constitution, Thomaswrote. Thomas noted, “If a college student misspends money his par ents give him, the parents would be foolish to send more money.They would be enabling bad choices. Isn’t it the same with Amer ica’s debt?” Other owners of the U.S. debt, which is $55,000 per citizen or $151,000 per taxpayer, include Japan, 7 percent; other foreign coun tries, 19 percent; Social Security Trust Fund, 16 percent; Federal Reserve Bank, 12 percent; mutual funds and money market funds,6 percent, other federal government accounts, 13 percent; and stateand local governments, 3 percent. The U.S. pays low interest ratesand can print more money. ——— Last year Gloria MacKenzie, 84, of Zephryhills, won the Powerball and after federal taxes took home $278 million. Wonderhow her life is now, nearly 10 months later. Hardee County ASAPP on Thursday (today) will present “Shat tered Dreams” to Hardee High juniors and seniors regarding under age drinking and impaired driving by showing them howirresponsible choices can end all dreams. The opening presentation will be at the HHS Gym at 8:30 a.m. followed by a mock crash scene at Wildcat Stadium at 9:40 and amock memorial at 11. Project coordinator Maria Pearson said 82percent of Hardee junior high and high school students choose to besubstance-free (alcohol, tobacco or marijuana) and 89 percent donot use alcohol. ASAPP stands for Alliance Against SubstanceAbuse and Pregnancy Prevention.

But, if weknow about it, be sure we willbe following through,” saidWhatley. Eason agreed, ‘Our biggest issue is to identify nuisance drug houses in the city. We will con tinue to get search warrants andserve them. We will work withcounty officials in a coordinatedattack as drugs pass back andforth between the county andcity,” concluded Eason.

Arrangements by Hancock Funeral Home, Fort Meade. Dear Editor: I am very grateful to everyone who made this event possibleand supported me throughoutthe planning. I am especiallygrateful for the early and contin uous support of my husbandJohn, son Tyler, and key friendswho were a huge source of pos itive encouragement and instru mental in my perseverance inthe early planning of this eventwhen support was slim. The initial idea for this event was planted two years earlier bymy then teenagers, Tyler and Brittany. Brittany was a senior,and that was the first year I ex perienced the Ms. Project Grad uation event. I was shocked andthought out loud to them,“Surely we can create an eventfor guys that would be better.” Tyler suggested we could do something where the guys couldbe themselves on stage, and itwould be cool to involve someguy type challenges like shoot ing, fishing, physical fitness-type stuff. At the beginning ofthis year, the serious considera tion for this event began, and through football games and overe-mail the plan developed intothe awesome event held last Sat urday night. Throughout, my goal has beento design a respectable, fun, andentertaining event that show cased some of the awesomeyoung men at Hardee HighSchool. Additionally, and on apersonal note as a Christian, Iwanted to start an event thatwould be familyfriendly. Anevent that I would not beashamed to stand before Godone day and say that I had a partin it. You see, I know one day Iwill stand before God. As hischild I want to give Him a goodreport. I want to use the gifts andabilities He has given me to dogood and make a positive differ ence for my family and my com munity. My hope is that if this event is continued, that our predecessorswill have the same goal: tomaintain it as a respectableevent for senior guys, high onfun and flexibility, and low onstress and rigidity. In regard tothe finale of Saturday night’sevent, I think it was awesome. Seeing the guys cut loose, be themselves, and do a little cele bration dance was great. I hadpicked the song on short noticewithout the committee’s ap-proval (that was one thing wehad forgotten to consider in ourplanning) — I didn’t think thatsong would be a problem. However, I understand some people may have been offended.For that I am very sorry. Thatwas not my intention. I apolo gize. Overall, I think the event as a whole was a huge hit, and I amvery proud to have had a part inits construction. I am also glad Iwas able to work with somewonderful people and get toknow the great young men whowere our contestants. They werereally good sports, not super ex cited about some of the chal lenges (like walking out onstage) but faithful, enduring par ticipants. Saturday night we recognized all of those who enabled theevent to happen… those whopurchased ads, those who gaveanonymous donations, scholar ship donors, the Project Gradu ation and Mr. HHS Committeemembers, those who did all thedecorating, made the awards, themany community volunteers,etc. There are many that had ahand in this event’s success, andI am so grateful to all of them. But, over everything I am thankful to God and give Himfull glory for any and all goodthat comes from this event. Heis awesome, and without Hisblessing in so many different sit uations, this event would nothave happened. In conclusion, every moment is precious and time is short. Useit wisely. When you see some thing isn’t right, or as good as itcould be, do what you can tomake it better — stand for yourbeliefs — you can make a differ ence!

Lamb often isserved during the Easter holidayand during some Jewish Pass-over Seder meals. The JewishPassover is an historical festival,commemorating the exodus ofthe Hebrews from slavery inEgypt. The origin of Passover, or Pe sach, goes back more than 3,000years as told in the Book of Exo dus. God commanded Moses andthe Jews to eat slaughtered androasted paschal lamb with bitterherbs and matzah to symbolizethe Passover sacrifice. God alsoinstructed them to spread theblood of the paschal lamb on thedoorposts and lintel above thedoor of the houses in which theywill eat the paschal lamb. Thisact was God's sign to "pass over"the Jews' homes during the 10thplague, which killed the firstbornsons of the Egyptians as a pun ishment for enslaving the Jews.Passover also celebrates springand the new growth and harvestseason, particularly the earliestbarley and cereal harvest. Serv ing lamb is a central part of bothEaster and Passover. Lamb is the oldest domesti cated meat species. In manycountries, lamb is the majorsource of meat. Many Americansthink of lamb as a springtimefood, but it can be enjoyed yearround. According to the USDA,each American eats almost apound of lamb yearly. Lamb ismeat from sheep less than a yearold, making it especially tender.Most are brought to market at KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis about 6 to 8 months old. If thephrase "Spring Lamb" is on ameat label, it means the lambwas slaughtered between Marchand October. When selecting lamb, look for good marbling (white flecks offat within the meat muscle), andmeat that is fine-textured andfirm. The meat should be pinkand the fat should be firm, whiteand not too thick. The USDAquality grades are reliableguides. Chops can come fromvarious primal cuts. "Loin"chops and "rib" chops are verytender. Less expensive "blade"and "arm" chops (from the shoul der) and "sirloin" chops (fromthe leg) can be just as tender, butthey are not as visually attractivebecause the meat is separated bybands of connective tissue.This recipe for Spiced LambShanks is a flavorful but simpleway to prepare lamb in the slowcooker, and is the perfect dish foryour holiday celebration. SPICED LAMB SHANKS Lamb shanks are one of the most flavorful cuts of lamb.

Fun Classes Offered At Depot The city of Bowling Green just got a little more patriotic. The City Commission re cently approved the purchase of 24 U.S. flags and flagpoles. The new flags will be displayed along U.S. 17, north and south of Main Street in Bowling Green. The flags will wave in the wind during patriotic holi days. The flags will fly in honor of all who have lost their lives in service on Memorial Day. During the Fourth of July week, they will be displayed to cele brate the birth of this nation. For Veterans Day in November, all military personnel will be recognized. The flags will serve as a tribute for all that the troops, both past and present, have sacrificed in serving this country. On Flag Day, June 14, the flags will line U.S. 17 with patriotism. Although the city bought 24 flags, the Parks & Recreation Committee wants to expand on that to include 24 more. The committee is asking Bowling Green citizens to buy a flag, two feet by four feet, and a 10-foot flagpole in memory of a loved one. Each flag and pole set will cost $50. To show patriotism across Bowling Green or to honor a mother, father, military son or daughter, grandparent, aunt, uncle or friend, just buy a set and see it while driving on U.S. 17. To order, call Jean Kelly at 375-4797, Shirley Tucker at 245-8259, Charles Fulse at 3752877 or the city office at 3752255. Buy a flag before the next patriotic holiday and see that red, white and blue flowing across U.S. 17! Flags Will Wave In Bowling Green By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-AdvocateNew changes have been put in place for the Latin Honors recognition program at Hardee Senior High School. The needed revision to the Student Progression Plan was brought to the March 13 School Board meeting for approval. That plan is in place to help schools make sure all students are successful and prepared for the next grade level. The request was made by the administration at HHS to be able to amend the Latin Honors grade-point average ranges. This comes as a result of some courses being weighted, or ranked, differently. A few years ago HHS revised the weighting of the Honors courses, changing them from a 1.0 to a .5. Before this, all Honors, Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment courses were weighted the same. Since AP and DE are collegelevel classes, those courses needed to carry a heavier weighting than Honors classes, said principal Dr. Michele Polk. At the same time those changes were made, HHS switched from having a valedictorian and salutatorian to Latin Honors, to be able to recognize more students who have a high GPA. Depending on how high their GPA is, students can earn Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude or Cum Laude grad uation designations. Over time, however, the changes originally made to the Honors classes have affected students GPAs, meaning there are now fewer students eligible for Summa Cum Laude. Because of this, the administration has decided to lower the ranges of the Latin Honors GPA, which will be effective for the Class of 2014. In the past, students needed a 4.50 or higher GPA to be in Summa Cum Laude, Magna Cum Laude students needed an average between 4.26 and 4.49, and Cum Laude members needed between a 4.0 and 4.25 GPA. Now to be in Summa Cum Laude, students need a weighted GPA of 4.40 or higher. For Magna Cum Laude, a weighted GPA from 4.21 to 4.39. And stu dents hoping to graduate Cum Laude need to have a weighted GPA from 4.00 to 4.20. This adjustment will bring the highest Latin Honors recognition back in line with our initial effort to recognize deserving students for their exceptional ac ademic performance in high school, said Polk. Ranges Change For Latin Honors This week, Im turning The Fireside column over to Firefighter/Paramedic Todd Barton. Who ya gonna call in an emergency? If you answered Ghostbusters, you'd be incorrect, that is unless you have a ghost prob lem. The correct answer would be to dial 1 in an emergency. Since this article is Fire Department-based, lets focus on just that ... your Hardee County Fire-Rescue. Did you know that HCFR has firefighters who are either EMTs or Paramedics? Each HCFR Rescue (ambulance) is staffed with at least one paramedic and one emergency medical technician to han dle most medical calls, and it is considered a rolling Emer-gency Room. When a Rescue is dispatched to your medical emergency, you get highly trained personnel who have arrived to evaluate your condition and transport you to the closest appropriate facility. Did you know that the closest stroke and cardiac facility to Wauchula is actually in Avon Park? Did you know that the closest Trauma Center is in Lakeland? Our local Critical Access Hospital does an outstanding job with its resources, however it is not considered a specialty resource center such as Tampa General (Level 1 trauma, pediatric trauma and burn center) or Lakeland Regional (Level 2 trauma), where critically in jured persons requiring rapid surgery are transported. HCFR Paramedics/EMTs are trained to assess patients rapidly and determine the appropriate facility and transport them by ground or by helicopter, depending on the needs of our patients. I called for an ambulance! Why did a fire truck show up? This question has a few possible answers. First, HCFR has two ALS (Advanced Life Support) fire en gines, one stationed in Wauchula and the second in Zolfo Springs. Each ALS engine is staffed with a minimum of two firefighters, one of whom is a paramedic. The ALS engines carry the same medical equipment and supplies that our Rescues (ambulances) do, but in smaller quantities. This means in the event that a Rescue is not readily available due to helping another resident, the Engine can respond and deliver the same high-quality care while waiting for the next available am bulance to arrive. With only three staffed Rescues on duty and over 28,000 resi dents, its clear to see ALS engines are a necessity in the event that all the ambulances are busy. A second reason is in the event of what we like to call a critical medical, an Engine responds for additional manpower. Have you ever watched TV dramas or real life ER shows where someone has gone into cardiac arrest? Have you noticed there's more than two people working on the patient there? That's because a car diac arrest situation is a labor intensive job that requires many things to be done ASAP, including starting IVs, giving medications, breath ing tubes, chest compressions, EKG monitoring, shocking lethal heart rhythms, etc. If for some reason the additional manpower is not needed once the patient has been assessed, the Engine can depart from the call and be readily available to respond if another medical emergency occurs. It's better to have the extra set of hands now than later. Those are just some of the many reasons and Engine shows up when you called for an ambulance, and I hope this gives you a little better understanding of the excellent care Hardee County Fire-Res cue provides for you and your loved ones, 24/7, 365 days a year leap years, too! The FiresideBy James StillwagonHardee County Fire-Rescue Chief PASSOVER LEEK AND OLIVE BITES Take advantage of leeks, in season in spring, with these Passover appropriate appetizers. 3 leeks, each preferably 1 to 1 1/2 inches in diameter, white and pale green parts only, trimmed 1 tablespoon margarine or butter, cut up 1/2 cup water 1/4 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves Salt Pepper 15 pitted Kalamta olives, cut in half 30 kosher-for-Passover crackers, such as Tam Tams 1.

All rights reserved Good Housekeeping Dear Editor: What has my prison experi ence been like? Well, I have been here for over 3 years. I has been pure hell. You are put through a process. You are brought from your jail in shackles and hand cuffs. You are on a bus with no air-conditioning, and it smelled of urine. I was brought to Lowell Cor rectional. And I had a fellow Hardee County citizen who came on the same bus with me. And we both came from the Polk County Jail. Well, that is another story all together there. Once I entered those prison gates my heart skipped a few beats! Not for the good either. I was told to shut up, no questions, strip, bend over, squat, cough! Then the officer squirts lice soap all in your hair. You have 60 seconds to get it out under a stream of cold water, and another 60 seconds to get your uniform on. It is not like county jail. There is no shampoo or toothpaste given to you. No! You get a toothbrush and a small bar of soap, and you dont even get a comb. You are then given a seat in a small room. One by one you are brought out and asked very per sonal questions by a nurse. You are to fill out a questionnaire about your family, your health, your sexual preference. Then you go back to that room and wait. And wait. And wait. All day. I arrived with 20 or more other females, and that was around 7:30 a.m. We went to our rooms around 3 p.m. And that was awful, too. Almost 100 women in one small dorm. You can imagine it was crazy. I could not even call home until I filled out a phone list. Which took two weeks. My heart ached for me to awaken and it just be a nightmare, which still has not happened. During the next few weeks I was degraded, humiliated, crushed! I became an inmate. No longer a citizen. I became a number. I was took to work camp three months later. And guess what, when it is called a work camp that is exactly what you do. Hard work. I mowed and grew tomatoes. Then I became a med ical orderly, which was to clean the Medical Building. Then I had to go to another prison to have my gall bladder took out. That was hell, too. Then after that I was moved again to another prison. Main Unit. All of these are at Lowell in Ocala. It is huge. The thing about getting moved from one prison to another is it just hap pens. Soon as you think you are comfortable it happens. 3 a.m. your bed gets kicked, and you are told to pick it up. Now I am at Hernando. Been there over a year. It is the longest I have been at one prison. There is no airconditioning. There are 72 women inmates in each dorm. Very crowded. And some of them are not very nice. Some are murderers. Some are bank robbers. Some are drug dealers. There is a wide variety. Of all races. It is nothing good. If you dont have funds in your account you dont have no shampoo or stamps or paper or nothing. The only thing prison gives you is 2 rolls of tissue a week and a razor and a hotel size soap. Thats it. And a job. Everyone in prison works. Thats how a prison runs. The inmates do it. The officers just supervise. There are 8 toilets, and 2 dont work. With 72 women some thing tears up constantly. It is hard to keep things in working order. My favorite part of the day is night time when I know I have got through another day. And maybe I will receive mail from someone. Prison is hell. And anyone who has been here once and comes back again has something wrong with their thinking process. I just thought I was a little crazy till I came to prison. Then I found out I was just spoiled rotten. L.O.L. Soon as this tour through hell is over, I wont ever sign up again. Thats what I keep re minding myself. Every day. I count down the days. If you think you want to be here, just know at this prison there are 3 people who are citizens of Hardee County. We all know each other well. And 2 of us never thought we would ever be here. 1 of us this is her second time. Vicki M. Adcox H26777 Hernando Correctional Institution Brooksville Letter To The Editor Hardee County Woman Says Prison Is HellCollectingQ: In 1955, I re ceived a Pelikan foun tain pen as a graduation gift. It is the 400 NN model in a light tortoise case. I understand that some fountain pens have become quite valuable, and I hope the one I have is among them. Kenneth, Albuquerque, N.M. A: I spoke to several pen collectors and they seem to agree that your Pelikan 400 NN is worth about $150. Q: When I was a young girl, I loved reading the Judy Bolton mystery series. I have a first edition of "The Ghost Parade" by Margaret Sutton, with its original dust jacket. Does it have more value than sentimental? Jan, Ramona, Calif. A: The first edition of this book was published in 1933 and is valued in the $50 to $75 range, depending, of course, on condi tion. Incidentally, the first 10 titles in the Bolton series, which were published from 1932 to 1937, had four black-and-white illustrations printed on glossy paper. They were the work of Pelagie Doane from originals no doubt done in full color. Doane also was responsible for your book's cover art. Q: During the 1970s, I began collecting bobbing heads, mostly NFL team members. I now have several dozen but have no idea of current val ues. Sam, Chesterfield, Mo. A: One of the better references is "Bobbing Head Dolls: 1960-2000" by Tim Hunter. This il lustrated reference fea tures more than 700 dolls from baseball, football, basketball, hockey, TV, advertising, political and cartoon characters. This guide should help you determine how much the dolls in your collection are worth. It is available at Ama-zon.com. Q: My mother's china pat tern was "Virginia Rose," and I would like to find out more about it. I'm thinking of adding to the pieces already in the set. Do you have any sug gestions? Laura, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: "Virginia Rose" was introduced by the Homer Laughlin china company in 1929 and continued to be produced well into the 1970s. It was mainly sold in department stores, two of the main sources being Sears and Woolworth's. I suggest you mon itor eBay to track down addi tional pieces of this pattern.

These cheese pancakes are wonderful for a midweek Passover dairy breakfast, lunch or dinner. We like them topped with sour cream, but if you have a sweet tooth, try applesauce, or ange marmalade or other pre serves. 4 eggs 1 cup 4 percent cottage cheese 3/4 cup whole or low-fat milk 3/4 teaspoons salt, or more to taste 1 tablespoon sugar (optional) 1 cup matzo meal Grapeseed or other acceptable Passover oil, for frying 1. In a bowl, with a fork, beat together the eggs, cottage cheese, milk, salt and sugar. Stir in the matzo meal. Set aside for 10 minutes. 2. In a 10to 12-inch skillet, over medium heat, heat enough oil to cover the bottom by a scant 1/8 inch. When the oil is hot, pour a scant 1/4 cup of the batter into the skillet. It should form a pancake about 4 inches in diameter. If it is too thick to spread this much, add a little more milk. The pancake should sizzle immediately. Fry until the first side is golden brown, 60 to 90 seconds. Turn the pancake. The second side takes less time, about 30 seconds. 3. Drain the pancakes on paper towels or brown paper and serve while still very hot. Makes 18 pancakes.

Typical spring factors like re finery maintenance, increasingdemand and the switch to sum mer-blend fuels remain part ofthe story. In the past seven days, the av erage price for a gallon of gaso line rose five cents in bothGeorgia and Tennessee. How-ever, the most expensive pricesin the Southeast are found inFlorida, where the average priceis $3.63, eight cents higher thanthe national average and sevencents higher than last week. “Florida motorists are seeing the highest gas prices sinceJuly,” said Mark Jenkins,spokesman, AAA — The AutoClub Group. “While Floridaprices could continue inchingup, they are still well below last year’s peak of $3.88 and not ex pected to reach $4 a gallon.” Gas prices in Florida are in creasing more than other statesbecause of supply issues andstrong demand. The Energy Information Ad ministration states that gasolineconsumption in Florida typicallypeaks in March, when seasonalpopulation is high and spring-break travelers and baseball fansarrive. This pattern differs fromother states, where gasoline con sumption typically peaks in Julyand August and is lowest duringthe winter months. Florida supplies are tightening because of a change in supply,leaving it susceptible to short ages. According to the EIA, im ports have dramatically declinedduring recent years, due to refin ery closures in the Caribbeanand limited shipments from re fineries in the Gulf of Mexico,that would otherwise be able tooffset the shortage. Now, anytime gasoline demand spikes, Florida must bidon shipments from the Atlanticbasin to prevent a shortage. Meanwhile, multiple factors continue putting upward pres sure on oil prices, which influ ence about two-thirds the priceof gasoline across the country.Consumer spending in theUnited States rose to the highestlevel in three months and contin ued conflict between Russia andthe Ukraine heightens concernsof a supply disruption. “Oil prices are expected to continue trending upward thisweek, which could mean morepennies per gallon at the pump,”said Jenkins.

By JIM KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Retired Marine Lt. Clebe McClary and his wife Deanna ofPawleys Island, S.C., spoke tothe Oak Grove Baptist Churchon Sunday, March 30. On March 3, 1968, the pla toon leader was nearly killed bygrenades and other enemy fire inVietnam. He was wounded seven times, was in the hospitals for 2 1/2years, and underwent 41 opera tions. He lost his left eye and leftarm and had serious injuries ofhis legs and right arm. His trig ger finger still works for hunt ing. He jogs a lot. McClary was a star athlete in football and track in high schooland exceled in track in college. He has spoken about his expe riences and Christianity in 50states and 48 countries. “I tellpeople about Jesus.” He said people can get too much or too little education, say ing “just enough” is the rightamount. A person’s “I-Will” ismore important than their “I.Q.” He said 84 percent of Ameri can World War II veterans wereChristians and are members ofthe “Greatest Generation.” Suc ceeding generations in Americahave smaller and smaller per centages of Christian believers. McClary joined the Marines after seeing someone burn anAmerican flag. He became a committed Christian after returning toAmerica when he heard an evan gelist say there are “Two kinds of fools — fools for Christ orfools for others.” He spoke partly from Romans 5:3-5, that suffering or tribula tions can produce patience, ex perience, hope, endurance,character and love. One of his favorite quotations is “In this world of give andtake, there are not enough peo ple willing to give what ittakes.” He compared a good life to a baseball diamond, in which firstbase is salvation, second base ischurch membership, third baseis service, and home plate isHeaven. McClary has published a book entitled “Living Proof” writtenby him and Dianne P. Barker, aformer columnist for the Press-Chronicle in Johnson City, Tenn. He last spoke at Oak Grove Baptist Church in 2003. Thecouple have two grown daugh ters and are friends with Duckand Susan Smith. Being an athlete and distance runner, with a resting heart beatof 37 beats a minute, and hislong-time healthy diet helpedhim live through his injuries. He encourages men and boys to treat girls and women withgreat respect. Marine Lt. Clebe McClary Speaks To Oak Grove Baptist COURTESY PHOTO Vietnam War Marine Lt.

4B The Herald-Advocate, April 3, 2014 Fort Green NewsBy Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! Happy birthday wishes are ex tended to Donia Hughes on her 90th birthday April 4. Mrs. Hughes is Donald Samuels mother. His sister, Elaine, is coming down to help celebrate the big occasion. Mary told me they went into the nursing home last week and Mrs. Hughes was in the dining room eating and feeding herself. I had been ear lier and she looked bad. Turning 90 is certainly a reason to get better! Junior Cooper had a glorious funeral service in the Bowling Green Church of God. After the services they had a delicious meal for the family. When Junior was very little he lived with his aunt Zula and uncle Tom Cooper as did his brother, Bobby. Junior was not allowed to go to school, as the school said it would do him no good. Aunt Zula taught him to read and count money. He was very sharp and probably if the schools had been like they are now, they would have accepted him. The flag at Bowling Green City Hall was at half-mast and all the family took this as a tribute to Junior. He lived in Bowling Green his entire life until he had to go to the assisted living facility in Lakeland. He will be missed. Norma Alejandro had a proce dure last Thursday but the doctors still could not find anything wrong. She has been sick to her stomach and in pain. Phyllis Norris was added to our prayer list as well as Beth Sasser and Nancy McQuaig. Please pray for these. The Sasser families had a reunion last Monday at Pioneer Park. I personally think it is wonderful when families get together at something pleasant in stead of the usual, a funeral! Our neighbors, Faye, Lee, Chrysta and Makayla Chancey and Dustyn, Tammy, Brianna and Brody Waters, all went to Dallas in North Georgia to at tend the wedding of Steve and Marsha Chanceys daughter, Amber. She is now Amber McNutt. Steve and Marsha have both made their final journeys, which is sad for Amber on her wedding day. The neighbors had a lovely time and, of course, it was a beautiful wedding, but cold. They had planned on an outdoor wedding but the weather did not cooperate and they had to move it indoors. When driving up Friday, the neighbors stopped in Tifton for dinner and this is where Bailey Albritton attends college. She is Fayes niece. She met them at Chilis and they all enjoyed eating together. Alex Pierstorff enjoyed a week at home for spring break. He is enjoying his training at the Air Force Academy in Colorado but there is no place like home! Clay Samuels had another wreck but did not get hurt. He was angry with himself and said he just over-corrected. I still predict that someday we will hear his name on the NASCAR circuits. This is a beautiful time of the year to take a trip as the trees are such a pretty green and the dogwoods are beginning to bloom. Earl and Mary Bar-geron, Greg and Shuree Rawls, and Sherman and I enjoyed a few days at Waldo for some great Southern Gospel singing. Judy Miller and daughter, Earlene Carte came over Friday and Saturday for fel lowship with all of us plus the singing. Earlene lives in Ocala and Judy spent the night with her and rode back home with Greg and Shuree. Tom and Sharon Lynn had planned on going to Waldo but instead visited his sister in Alabama for her 86th birthday. Hopefully, we all can go to the next sing, which will be in Oc tober. Fort Green Baptist is having its annual Easter egg hunt on April 19. It will begin at 10 and the Easter story will be shared. After hunting eggs lunch will be served. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to the family of Susan Tatzin. I only knew her slightly as she lived across the street from Miss Bumby when she first moved to town. She was a teacher and young! You get to the age when you pay more at tention to the age of the people in the obituaries! Please pray for one another and our nation. _______________________________ IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA CIVIL ACTION CASE NO.: 252013CA000386 COLE TAYLOR BANK, Plaintiff, vs. ROGER C.

The lake has three fishing piers and a 200-foot boardwalk for fishing that is accessible to mobility-im paired anglers. Bait will be provided free to kids 15 years of age and under. A limited number of loaner rods and reels are available to this age group. Older anglers must supply their own bait and tackle. There is a casting contest and lunch is provided free, courtesy of Publix. Additionally, there are a number of free, hands-on ac tivities for the entire family provided by FWC partners with the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network.

Bill Bojangles Robinson dances again with his old part ner, Shirley Temple, in her latest picture, Just Around The Cor ner. The big dance scene is the greatest finale of what is hailed as Shirleys most original and diverting scenario to date. A little woman from Mississippi by the name of Miss Lillie Stoate came to Florida to make it rain, and within two days after her arrival it rained. When she arrived the weather report pre dicted fair and dry weather, even going so far as to surmise that there was no rain in sight and that it might be some six weeks before the record drought was broken. 50 YEARS AGO A former Wauchula resident now living in Anchorage, Alaska, has written friends here, relating her personal experi ences during the recent great earthquake which devastated many areas of that state as well as cities along the Pacific coasts of Canada and the United States.

The following is a synopsis of agenda topics that may be of public interest. Times are approximate except for advertised public hearings. Zoning, 8:35 a.m. There are three items, all amendments to the Land Development Code, on swimming pool setbacks, planned unit developments and to change language.

On The Agenda NEW HOME MONITOR LEARNS YOUR HABITS If you were to get to the point where you're forgetting to eat or take your medications, how long would it be before someone noticed a change in your routine? For an initial $150 and then $20 a month, seniors and those who care about them can have peace of mind with a gadget called the Lively Sensor. The Lively Sensor is ... amazing. Here's how it works: Small monitors (six of them, the size of a quarter) are attached to various items in the home the pill container, refrigerator door, TV remote, keychain, front door that you touch or move on a daily basis. The idea is to attach the monitors to things that are sure to be a clue that all is not well if the monitors aren't moved. The sensors get to know your habits. The Lively Sensor gets the signals in a central hub in your house (you don't need Internet). Your loved ones can use a cellphone or computer to check the "log" of your activities. Yes, the Lively Sensor is a monitor, and no, none of us want to be watched. But the alterna tive being forced to move into a retirement building isn't our first choice. And you do have control over where the monitors are attached. If you're not on the Internet and don't always get the latest photos of your grandkids, there's the LivelyGram, mailed to your house twice a month with pic tures and messages from your family, as part of the Lively setup. If you'd like to learn more, go online to www.mylively.com (check at the library if you don't have a computer), or call 1-888757-0711 to ask for a brochure to be mailed to you.

Each stu-dent is asked to interview an older per-son. Selected interviews are publishedhere as an encouragement to the stu-dents and for the enjoyment of our read-ers. Back Back In In Time TimeDEAR DR. DONOHUE: I have a 13-year-old boy who'shaving asthma attacks. Atleast, that's what they soundlike to me. It started early thisyear when the weather was stillcold. He plays or practicesbaseball three times a week.When he'd run the bases, he'dstart coughing and wheezing.Now that the weather iswarmer, he still has attacks,but not so bad. Does this soundlike asthma to you? I don'tknow that he's allergic to any thing. — W.O. ANSWER: Asthma is an in flammation of the airways, thebronchi. They become very sen sitive, and suddenly narrow andfill with mucus when provoked.Both the constriction and themucus make it difficult to get airinto and out of the lungs. In cluded in the definition ofasthma is reversibility. The con striction and mucus buildup arenot permanent, in most cases. The signs of asthma are a feel ing of chest tightness, shortnessof breath, wheezing and cough ing. In your son's kind of asthma,exercise-induced asthma, the at tack comes on five to 10 minutesafter beginning an activity. Exer cise-induced asthma is not so de pendent on allergy triggers. Itcomes on because cold, dry airirritates the airways. Thewarmer, moister air is perhapsthe reason why his attacks arenot as pronounced as they were. You need to have a doctor ex amine the boy to be sure if this isexercise-induced asthma. Even ifhe has no symptoms at the timeof his doctor visit, the doctor caninduce them in a number ofways. He or she also can put anend to them. If exercise-in duced asthma isproven, a multitudeof medicines areavailable for control. Most can be taken as mouth sprays.Taking the medicinebefore physical ac tivity can preventasthma symptoms for two orthree hours. That's long enoughto get him through a practice ora game. The above is for exercise-in duced asthma. It's not for otherasthma varieties. The booklet on asthma explans this common illness and its treat ments in detail. To obtain a copy,write: Dr. Donohue — No.602W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL32853-6475. Enclose a check ormoney order (no cash) for $4.75U.S./$6 Canada with the recipi ent's printed name and address.Please allow four weeks for de livery. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: What's the lowest number ofcalories a woman can safely eatin a day to lose weight? I wouldlike to lose 20 pounds. Howlong will that take? — G.K. ANSWER: An active woman needs around 1,800 calories aday. If she gets much less thanthat, she'll have a hard timemeeting her vitamin and mineralrequirements. If she deducts 500 calories from her daily diet, sheshould lose a pound in aweek — 20 pounds in 20weeks. If she actively exer cises, she needs to lowerher daily intake by only300 calories to get thesame results. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: You printed two letters onheadaches. I don't see youmention the medicine thatworks for me — Excedrin. Ittakes only half a pill to end myheadaches. My grown son hastried it, but he didn't get goodresults. Just wanted you toknow how well it works for me. — J.R. ANSWER: Thanks. Excedrin is a combination of aspirin andacetaminophen (Tylenol). ManyExcedrin products also containcaffeine, which is said to en hance pain-relief. I'm surereaders will appreciate your tes timonial.

Jesus said to him (Peter) Truly, I say to you, this very night before the cock crows you will deny Me three times.Matthew 26:31a,34 (RSV)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y When Jesus finished pray ing, He went with His followers across the Kidron Valley. On the other side, there was a garden, and Jesus and His followers went into it.John 18:1 (NCV)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y Judas knew where the place was because Jesus met there often with His followers. So Judas came there with a group of soldiers and some guards from the priests and the Pharisees.John 18:2a,3 (NCV)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y Judas walked over to Jesus to greet Him with a kiss, But Jesus said, Judas, would you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?Luke 22:47 (NLT)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y When Judas saw that Jesus was condemned, in his re morse, he returned the thirty silver coins to the chief priests and elders with the words, I was wrong. I have betrayed an innocent man. And what has that got to do with us? they replied. This is your affair.Matthew 27:3-4 (PME)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y And Judas flung down the silver in the Temple and went and hung himself. They purchased with it the Potters Field; it is called the field of blood to this day.Matthew 27:5,9 (PME)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y Meanwhile, Simon Peter was still standing there warming himself. So they asked him, You arent one of His disciples, too, are you? He de nied it, saying, I am not. Again Peter denied it, and at that moment a rooster began to crow.

DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Can I give my dog and cat the same herbal supplements and vitamins that I take? It seems that a lot of medicines pre scribed by the vet are just petsized doses of human medication. Tanya G., via email DEAR TANYA: Some pets can take similar vitamin supplements to humans, but as you noted, the dosages can vary greatly between humans and between different sizes and species. Dogs and cats and other mam mals are most likely to be pre scribed medicines that humans also take. Lizards, fish and nonmammals are far less likely to take the same things. It's really, really important to talk to your pets' veterinarian about giving them vitamins or herbal supplements, in addition to doing your own research on natural pet health. Many vets recommend certain supplements for dogs and cats, usually added to their food or given in pill form. Some advocate homeo pathic remedies. All vets will tell you what not to give your pets, and you should take heed. Additionally, your pet's food may already contain some vita min supplements. Be aware of what they're already eating be fore adding more of the same. What kind of supplements are commonly given to house pets? Some of the more popular ones include vitamin C, which is pur ported to reduce inflammation; fish oil, which improves skin and hair; and glucosamine (along with chondroitin), which many owners say has reduced the severity of arthritis in their older dogs. Again, do your research and make sure the supplement or vitamin you want to give your dog or cat is safe for them. Make sure they're getting the right dose for their weight, as well. With vita mins as with everything else, there is too much of a good thing.

Do we need to replace these windows? Charlene T., via email A: Drafty, leaky windows have a number of causes for from warped or old frames to single-pane windows and more but completely replacing the windows and frames can be quite costly. Your electric company may offer an energy audit kit or can even send a professional to perform an energy audit at low or no cost. A basic kit can determine that hot or cool air is escaping the house, while more detailed audits can determine where that air is escaping. Another way is to simply bring in a window replacement con tractor to inspect the front-room windows, determine what's wrong and present an estimate for the cost of repair or replacement. This is the costliest option, so be certain the problem is se vere enough to warrant window and/or frame replacement. Consider getting two or three esti mates from different contractors to compare prices. In the long term, investing in new, higher-quality windows can save a lot in heating and air con ditioning costs, and help make the front room more comfortable year-round. In the short term, you'll want to take some inexpensive meas ures to prevent drafts and, in the summer, cool air from escaping. If you've performed an energy audit or have been able to figure out just where outside air is blowing through, you can lessen the problem. Air entering under the sash can be blocked by placing a length of foam weather stripping along the underside, where the sash meets the frame. Thinner weatherstripping can be installed vertically along the frame to prevent drafts from entering between the window and the frame. Install double-paneled curtains on all the windows of the room. In the winter, these provide an extra buffer between drafts and you. In the summer, these solid curtains can be pulled shut when the sun is shining into the room, to help keep the room cool. These short-term measures can save some energy, but to really make that room comfortable, take a serious look at replacing the windows, particularly if they're old or the frame or sash are visibly warped.
