Since 1988, the county has issued hundreds of permits to locate mobile homes and other construction on the property while inadvertently not enforc ing the FEMA Floodplain Management Plan covering structures designated to be in the floodplain or floodway. Currently, 100 percent of the park is shown to be in the floodplain and 70 percent of the park i s designated as in the floodway. The structures are allowed to be placed in these areas, pro vided they are built up above the base flood level and do not impede the movement of water or raise the base flood level in the floodway. FEMA has given a deadline of June for the county to notify the agency what corrective action it will take.

In order to hire the firm on such short notice without send ing the work out for bids, commissioners had to declare the situation a valid public emer gency to get around county purchasing policies. Wayne Parrish, one of the owners of the park, said every one knew the park was in the flood zone when permitting was started for the park in 1988. He said the county has in s pected and approved every thing that was built over the years. Now, 24 years later, they (FEMA) are saying I may lose sites, the office and the recre ation complex, he said. Parrish, who has hired an at torney, said he has a lot of money invested in the park and See FEMA 2A worst-case scenario would be ra ising many of the units up sev eral feet to an elevation about the base flood level, and some units may have to be removed or relocated elsewhere on the prop erty.

The very real dramatization aimed to show teens the horrific consequences possible when driving under the influence of alcohol. In this scenario, a boy who drank at a party on prom night caused a crash which killed one teen and injured others. Hardee County Fire-Rescue tried feverishly to save the life of the boy who wore those orange-and-blue athletic shoes. Later, a medical helicopter flew him away while a hearse collected another boy.

By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Who says video games are bad? Thanks to a video game, two juniors at Hardee Senior High School will get to travel to Nashville, Tenn., and compete at the Future Business Leaders of America National Leadership Conference. But they need some help getting there. D oris Ware, business educa tion teacher and FBLA advisor at HHS, says FBLA is a pre mier business education association that prepares students for careers in business and helps students build a portfolio of doc umented accomplishments in their academic experience. In February at the district level, Jake Pakovich and Justin Davidson competed as a team in t he Computer Game & Sim-ulation Programming event. They earned second place, and were eligible to move on to the State Leadership Conference at the end of March. At the state conference, the duo competed against 4,000 other students from around Florida and again placed second in the program.

The meeting will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Zolfo Springs Civic Center, also known as Town Hall, at 3210 U. S. 17 N. in the community. It will include various poster boards describing the work to be done on the 1.1-mile segment of the abandoned railroad corridor and Oak Street. It will run from south of Ninth Street to north of Third Street and be parallel to what is cur rently U.S. 17. In addition, a traffic light is planned at the U.S. 17/SR 66 in tersection. Residents will be able to discuss the proposed route with state Department of Transportation officials and offer their comments on the social, eco nomic and environmental effects of the proposed construction. The project involves a 54-foot raised median that will separate the two northbound and two southbound traffic lanes. The concrete roadway will have curbs and gutters, four-foot bike lanes and sidewalks. There will be a new under ground drainage system and a pair of stormwater ponds along the new alignment at Sixth Street (SR 66) to manage water running off the roadway. The existing two-lane U.S. 17 will be turned over to the town and be renamed Main Street. Construction for the proposed See PUBLIC 2A Public Can Speak On U.S. 17 Relocation the national level.

Then the new four-year degree soon to be offered at South Florida State College will allow you to stay at home and save in tuition expenses while earning the education necessary for your chosen career. SFSC announced on Monday that it has added another fouryear degree program for com munity students, this one for a Bachelor of Science in Ele-men tary Education. The new offer ing will be available at the Highlands Campus beginning this fall. The colleges current teaching program ended with an Associ ate in Arts degree, with an em phasis in education.

This is an exciting opportu nity for us at the college, said Michele DeVane, SFSC professor of education. The development of the program has been an intensive collaborative effort be tween SFSCs faculty and ad ministration. She noted the college collects research and data to determine what potential students need and want. Thus came the BSEE, See COLLEGE 2A

These words of advice were given by Leigh Sockalosky of the Hardee Animal Rescue Team when asked what a person can do to help an abused animal. Signs of abused or neglected animals can be seen all over the world, but rescue shelters such as HART and Trust Again Pet Shelter (TAPS) in Hardee County see them more often than most. Recently both shel ters have taken in animals with clear signs of abuse. TAPS was left with what Jill Edgley, founder of the pet shelter, calls a trash can baby. These are animals who are found in trash cans. This was the second trash baby left at TAPS in as many weeks. Other recent cases of abused animals ending up at TAPS in clude a 4-week-old kitten, tied up and left in a trash bag. An other cat, which Edgley named Chance, came to the shelter with one eye having exploded and needing immediate attention. In these cases, and others involving abuse, Edgley takes the animals to the vet so they can be evaluated. She also de-worms and de-fleas all of the animals once she gets them to the pet shelter. In the case of the trash baby, now named Buddy, his tail was cut to a point where the bone was left exposed. The tail was infected and had to be treated so the infection wouldnt get worse or spread. His short life has now dra matically changed for the better. E dgley says he is in good spirits and was recently sent to another rescue shelter, Passion 4 Pits that helps get pit bulls adopted. But Buddy is not the first animal to be transported to another shelter. Edgley says about 40 to 50 cats have been flown or driven to their new homes in Boston, Detroit, New York, Kentucky, San Diego and other states across the country. She also networks with centers across Florida to see if they are able to place animals that she cant. There are several ways to avoid having to find homes for so many animals. Edgley says if someone is thinking about owning a pet, that person should be ready to commit for at least 10 years. One of the examples she sets is of cats. She says they are very emotional and will sometimes commit suicide by refusing to eat if left behind by an owner. She also asks that people re search the breed of the animal they want to adopt, to see if that animals temperament is com patible to how they live. Edgley also emphasizes the importance of spaying and neutering. Sockalosky, from HART, says if an owner no longer wants a pet, as a kindness contact a shelter and dont just dump the animal somewhere. She also urged people not to leave their pets at Animal Control because she says if a person willingly hands over their animal, Animal Control would then have the right to euthanize the pet with out first holding it for five days like a stray roaming the streets. One of HARTs most wellknow n cases is of Hope. Hope was found in Arcadia after her owner intentionally set her on fire. A member of HART was driving through the area at that time, spotted Hope and brought her to the shelter. HART is now the owner of Hope and as such has taken on the responsibility of caring for her needs, but seeing as most of her body was burned and she sustained third-degree burns, her medical bills are extensive. Thankfully people from all over the world, including Rus sia, England, Thailand, Poland and more, have been touched by this brave dogs story and have donated money to her recovery. So far, over $47,000 has been donated for Hopes care. Hope is currently at a different facility as she gets more extensive treatments for her multiple injuries. Sockalosky says she is due to be back at HART sometime next week. Hope currently has laser therapy to help with her burns and has a critical-care doctor, an ophthalmologist and a dermatologist. Sockalosky says Hopes legs and face have healed, however work stills needs to be done to her chest, under her chin and her groin area where she was also burned. Although her injuries are hor rific, doctors said they are im pressed with how well Hope is healing, even calling it miracu lous. Sockalosky says this is the most horrific case of animal abuse she has ever come across. However she is surprised that Hope still trusts humans. She says that from day one, Hope would look at anyone who s he came in contact with and wag her tail and even lick their face if she were close enough. In seeing this, Sockalosky knew Hope wanted to live and decided to do everything to help her do so. Good things have also come from Hopes injuries, as she required a lot of help, new equipment was acquired to help her heal. This equipment will later be used on other dogs to help with burns or even arthritis. Sockalosky hopes that once this fighter overcomes her in juries, she will become a sort of therapy dog for kids. She wants to show kids through Hope that no matter how bad things are, it will get better. To help TAPS and dogs and cats such as Buddy or if looking to adopt go to the website taps2646.webs.com or the Face book page, TAPS Trust Again Pet Shelter or try reaching the shelter at 399-9898. Sokalosky asks pet owners to reach out for help if they need any sort of help in caring for their animals. She can be reached at 781-2045. Donations for Hope can be made through PayPal by going to hardeeanimalrescueteam.weebly.com, or by mailing a check to P.O. Box 2486, Wauchula, FL 33873. Toys and blankets can also be sent to that P.O. Box. Dogs and cats are also available for adoption from HART. And, as Sockalosky says, keep a lookout and watch out for animals and dont hesitate to report abuse if you see it.

Kentucky has won eight, four under head coach Adolph Rupp. Continuum Labs, which started out as the Bluewater project, has received $7.25 million in public funds, generated by Mosaic, from the Hardee Industrial Development Authority. The company is developing a medical records app. Continuum now wants another $2 million from the IDA. There has not been an accounting report of how the first $7.25 million has been spent. Many earlier goals have not been met. Continuum has said potential investors of $5 million (in money or sales contracts for the product) want the IDA to commit the extra $2 million. Start-up projects like this one can be like a high-stakes poker game. I think quite a few questions need to be answered before the IDA considers putting more public money into this project. If older people start developing conditions that mimic dimentia, AARP reports this may not be the onset of Alzheimers disease. It could be NPH (normal pressure hydrocephalus), medication (one lady was taking 17 different drugs and now only takes 3 along with 2 vitamin pills), depression or other mental health disorder, urinary tract infection, thyroid disease, diabetes, vitamin B-12 deficiency, or alcohol-related, writes Margery D. Rosen in the April AARP Bul letin. Jonathan Kelly, 21, of Bowling Green participated in a White Coat Ceremony March 22 at the University of Florida in Gainesville for first-year pharmacy students. The April Lion magazine reported Roger Bannister, 25, a medical student in England, in 1954 was the first runner to run a mile in under four minutes. His time was 3:59.5. Within five years over 100 other elite runners had broken the four-minute barrier, wrote Lions International President Barry J. Palmer. Lions is partnering with GAVI Alliance to protect tens of millions of children worldwide from measles, which kills 120,000 people a year, most of them under age 5. Immunization is impor tant. The other night I did perhaps my last performance as I played m y guitar and sang 23 of my latest songs. In all truth I have to admit it was the best show I have ever done. Even my agent said everybody enjoyed it but the audience. Never, ever tell a lie about anything; that is, when you tell the truth without repercussions. In ancient Egypt, where the protocol of the day was pyramids, while working on one of those gigantic pyramids, tired and dusty while wearing a torn tunic, one says to his fellow worker, Look, Acropolis, if they really want to leave a world wonder, then why dont they build these things upside down? Personally I refer to a bad reputation as a social scar. However, a lot of us are a whole lot more scarred up than others. Truly, marriage does have its just rewards just because she is of the female gender. Always remember, should you abuse drugs, they in kind will abuse you. Honey, I aint nothing but something you aint got. In todays world when the younger generation are socializing, they call it hanging out. However, when the elderly like me are socializing, they call it hanging on. What I ask is a bridal shower? Well the way I see it, the only way they are gonna ge her to take a bath before she marries Lover Boy is to have this little shindig and give her a bunch of presents and a free shower. When it comes to personal accomplishments, some will never let you know it while others will never let you forget it. At my late age I no longer look at my life in terms of days, weeks, months and years for all of my life. It now looks to me as one great big long day. From Day One she always drug me around on an emotional leash. In todays world I ask you who is your best friend? He is the one you aint seen through yet.

Teachers put all of their en ergy, creativity and talents into making sure each student has what they need to successfully move forward, DeVane said. Teaching is an extremely re warding career. This new degree will make the students more marketable and allow them to further their education locally and affordably. Both national and state em ployment projections highlight the need for teachers at the elementary level to serve a growing population, especially in High lands, Hardee and De-Soto counties. The degree was developed in response to the demand, she said. FEMAContinued From 1A They will all be working hard, a s there are over 50 competitive and skills events from the areas of technology, public speaking, business, finance and manage ment. The event Justin and Jake will be competing in will test their skills in designing a functional interactive simulation/-game that will entertain and educate or inform the person playing the game. All the students competing in this event must make a playable video game that meets all of the events requirements. There are two parts to the event, which are a prejudged program and a performance component. The per formance has to address the program creation, the process used and the results of the pro gram. In order to make the game that won them second place at the state level last month, the boys used the program The Game Factory 2. Their game was about an intern at a large company. The intern had to nav igate through a six-story office building. In order to work his way up a floor, the intern has to obtain skills that are business re lated. As the intern moves up the building, the obstacles get harder and the skills more difficult to obtain. The goal is to reach the top floor and get the full-time dream job. Justin and Jake worked hard on their game and hope to wow the judges at the national com petition and bring home a win. We are very proud of them and will make every effort to get them there so that they can com pete, said Ware. The National Leadership Conference is set for June 29 through July 2.

Some people are not going to come back next year and others want to locate a park model there and move into the park and they cant now. He said the park has only flooded one time in the 24 years, during the 2004 hurricanes, and no residences were flooded. Parrish said the streets are designed to collect the water and it then flows through a drainage system to a retention area. County Manager Lex Albritton said after a Special Exception was granted for the park in 1988, the county has issued permits since then without requir ing the structures to be above the flood level. He acknowledged the county has a great deal of responsibility for issuing the permits. Albritton said if the park was built prior to the new FEMA regulations in 1988 it would have been grandfathered in. Parrish said all the responsi bility should not be falling on the county because he also re ceived permits from state and federal agencies. It was a mistake from the be ginning, but it wasnt my mistake, he said In extreme cases where the community does not take action to bring itself into compliance, FEMA may initiate and enforce action against the community, according to the FEMA website.

April 10, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate It all depends on a coin flip. The Hardee Lady Wildcats softball team needs to win a coin toss with the Lemon Bay Lady Manta Rays in order to host the Class 5A, Region 3, District 11 playoffs which begin next Tuesday. Hardee and Lemon Bay both ended at 5-1 in district play, splitting games during the season and each beating DeSoto and Sebring twice. We have to do a coin toss with Lemon Bay to figure out first and second seeding. If we are first seed, we host the fourth seed and, if we win, we will host the championship game. If we are second seed, we host the third seed and, if we win and Lemon Bay wins, we will travel to the higher seed for the championship. We should find out something this week, explained Lady Cat Head Coach Caitlyn Bliss. Meanwhile, Hardee upped its overall record to 10-3 with a pair of wins last week, over DeSoto and Lakeland. Hardee 4, DeSoto 2 Hardee traveled to Arcadia to face the Lady Dawgs last Thursday in the final district game of the regular season. Behi nd the pitching of Alex Ull rich, the Lady Cats claimed the 4-2 win. Lady Wildcat batters went down in order in the first inning, groundouts retiring all three bat ters. DeSoto got its first score on a single and pair of sacrifices. It was another three up, three down for Hardee in the second inning, while DeSoto stranded a pair of runners. In the third, Hardee got Arissa Camel aboard, but lost her as she was coming home on a fielders choice. The Lady Bulldogs picked up their second score on a single, fielders choice, error and RBI single. It was 2-0. Hardee finally put a run in the scorebook in the fourth inning. Hannah Carlton walked, stole second and scored on a Sara Welch hit. Welch was out trying for third on a Karlee Henderson sacrifice. Makayla Deuberry, was safe on an error but left at second when the third out stopped the effort. It was 2-1. DeSoto stranded another pair of runners. In the fifth, Hardee got a double from Caryssa Johnson and Morgan Walters was safe on an error. Both runners were erased before getting home. A double Softball Playoff Bound play took out DeSotos only run ne r. In the sixth inning, Hardee took the lead for the first time in the game. With one away, Welch was safe on an error and Hen derson was hit by a pitch. Both came home as Deuberry took a walk and Johnson singled to left. The last two runners were left on base, but Hardee had a 3-2 ad vantage. A lady Bulldog batter walked but was caught trying to come home on an attempted bunt sacrifice which turned into a double play. The Lady Wildcats picked up an insurance run in the top of the seventh, and final, inning. Carlton walked and scored on a Hen derson hit up the middle to make it a 4-2 game. When DeSoto bat ters went three up, three down in the home half of the seventh, Hardee had its final district win for the season. Hardee 13, Lakeland 1 Senior Karlee Henderson led the Lady Wildcats on the mound in picking up their 10th win of the season on Senior Night, when Henderson, Ad-dison Aubry and Camel were honored in pre-game ceremonies. Lakeland got its only tally in the top of the first, when Katie Wyatt doubled up the middle and came in on a liner to left field by Sara Bruno. Hardee brought four runners home in the bottom of the first. With two down, Kendall Gough smacked a double up the middle. Henderson singled and Deu berry was safe on an error. Kim Derringer kept it going with a single. When Ullrich tripled, it cleared the bases and Hardee had a 4-1 edge. A double play took care of the Lady Dreadnaughts only runner in the top of the second. Hardee plated another four-spot. Carlton doubled to left, advanced on a passed ball and scored. Aubry was safe on an error and fol lowed her teammate home. With one down, Henderson lined a shot to left field and Deuberry was safe on an error. Derringer and Ullrich both singled to left field and Camel was safe on an error. When Jakaysha Lindsey hit one to the pitcher, the double play took Derringer out coming home, but Hardee had an 8-1 ad va ntage. It was again four up, three down for Lakeland in the top of the third, while Hardee sent 11 batters to the plate and brought five home, leaving three on the base paths. Carlton doubled and Aubry was safe on an error, Henderson slapped a shot to left center and Deuberry hit another. With two away, Senida Garcia walked and Camel hit one to right center to keep the action going. Walters also singled and Carlton walked to leave the bases stacked. It was 13-1. There was no further scoring. Lakeland stranded a runner in the top of the fourth and Hardee runners were out on a double play in the home half of the fourth. When the Lady Naughts failed to score on a three up, three down in the top of the seventh, Hardee had picked up another victory.

A s I have mentioned before, this is a beautiful time of the year with all the trees budding out and turning such a beautiful shade of green. I am sure the allergy sufferers dont notice the color, but just wish it would get over fast! The Cooper reunion will be June 21 at the fellowship hall of the Bowling Green Baptist Church, beginning at 11 and ending around 2. They will eat at noon. Kasie Powell went to Booker High in Sarasota for a juniorhigh chorus contest. There were other schools participating and the youth were told they would get their grade back at their school. Lynda and Charles Abbott along with David Godwin and Amy Franks have returned from a trip to Oklahoma. They all went out there to see Jake graduate from basic training. He is now in special classes in Arizona. When he graduates from there they will make another trip! Charles says he will not fly and does not want to go on inter states, so he used his computer to map out the way through small towns and highways. They all had a glorious time, and Grandma Lynda said Jake went into the Army a boy and came out a man. Lots of people think every young person who graduates high school needs to go into the military, so they will grow up and accept responsibility. Harriet Hendry was taken to the Sebring hospital last week with a stroke. She had surgery on April 3 and is doing well. Bonnie Keen is in the Florida Hospital in Tampa with pneu monia. Gloria Dupree is back in the Sarasota hospital. She had a hernia that burst, and she is having problems with thin blood. James Williamson is having trouble with his knees. He had knee replacement years ago, and now the metal is rubbing on metal and is very painful. He wants replacement but needs his blood to get regulated be-fore t he surgery can be attempted. Please pray for all of these and of course the ones suffering from cancer that you may know about. I saw Christine Thompson the other day and, of course, it was in Walmart and she caught me up on her family. Brittany Frey and Matt Fite are planning a June wedding, and they have a beautiful little girl named after the grandmas. The second name of each grandma gives the little lady the beautiful name of Mattie Lynn. Granddaughter Amanda is married and expecting a baby in October. Grandson Joey Frey will graduate in June from high school. I told Christine I was glad to finally find a baby girl. If something is on 95-percent-off sale or nearly that good, I usually will buy if I think I can use. Well, I got a cute little pink Easter rabbit that says Babys First Easter and all the new babies at church are boys! I told Chris I would take this toy to her house! The Florida bay tree, which I have heard some people refer to it as the wild magnolia, is sub ject to the beetle that is killing avocado trees. There is a bay tree along the ditch bank that separated my grove from the one behind me, and it is dead. It was a big tall tree. As serious as the Greening is in the groves, they need to find a cure for both it and the bug killing other trees. Kaylee Hogenauer had to get up early Sunday morning and be in Bradenton at 7:30 to register to bowl at 8. Hunter Davis bowled on Saturday and they both did good. If you have someone buried in the Methodist Cemetery in Fort Green, you need to come out and work this Saturday. We will begin work around 8 and finish by noon with a hot dog lunch. Bring your rakes, weed eaters and clippers, and you will have a fun time. Please pray for our nation and each other. 8:00AMEaster Worship ServiceBreakfast 9:00AM Sunday School 9:45AM No PM ServiceFirst Baptist Church 1570 West Main Street, Wauchula, Fl 4:10c Easter SeasonPastor Wendell & Ty Smith and the ministry of Faith Temple Church of God invites you to experience the unique ministry of O O b b a a d d i i a a h h F F r r a a n n k k l l i i n nT Th h e e M Ma an n I In n R Re e d d W Wi it th h T Th h e e C Cr ro os s s sPalm Sunday, April 13 10:30am & 6:00pm AITH TEMPLE CHURCH OF GOD7 70 01 1 N N. 7 7t th h A A v v e e. ., W W a au uc ch hu ul la aFor More Information Call:863-773-3800Visit us on the web: www.faithfilledchurch.com soc4:10c Join us for ourEaster Celebration ServiceS Su un nd da ay y, A Ap pr ri il l 2 20 0 1 10 0: :0 00 0 a am mPraise & Worship ~ Anointed Easter Message Family DayEgg HuntGamesHot Meal and LOTS of fun _______________________________ I N THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA GENERAL JURISDICTION DIVISION CASE NO.: 252008CA000680 BANK OF AMERICA, N.A.

Robarts Family FUNERAL HOME WAUCHULA WAUCHULA In Loving Memory By JIM KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The City Commission in Bowling Green on Tuesday, March 25, held a vi sioning meeting to discuss the citys current status and future. Representing the Central Florida Regional Planning Council were Jennifer Cody-Salisbury and Ron Borchers. This meeting is to plan for a viable future and make a road map to the future, said Cody-Salisbury. Several cit izens gave input at the meeting. The first question was what do you like most about Bowling Green. The answers included you get who you need, a well-run city government, small town, convenient location to Tampa, Orlando and Fort Myers, a safe community, a good police force, a true neighborhood, nearby Peace River, and the Paynes Creek Historic S tate Park. The second question was what would you change about Bowling Green. The answers were more jobs, clean up the city to encourage more people to live here, continue to maintain city infra structure, more community pride, a library, and plant trees. Downtown issues included develop ing the small park on Main Street close to City Hall, attract new businesses and enhance Main Street. The final question was what would you like to see in the future of Bowling Green. The answers were a nice hotel, a community building, more recre ation, more recycling, and more new street signs. The planners will later bring back a written report.

The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded is the highest since August. Prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee reached their highest levels since March 2013, September, and August respectively. Prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are exceeding yearover-year levels, because at this time last year, pump prices were tumbling from an unusual late February peak. In 2011 and 2012, prices followed a more traditional trend peaking in May and April, respectively. Prices may move a little higher in the coming weeks, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. However, the end is likely in sight for many drivers across the country. The exception to this trend could be motorists in re gions where unexpected re-fin ery or distribution issues cause pri ces to temporarily spike. Every spring refiners are re quired to switch to producing summer-blend gasoline by May 1, with that gasoline required to be sold at the pumps by June 1. The seasonal refinery mainte nance and this actual changeover itself increases the possibility of a disruption to pro duction, which can send prices higher in an area that is normally supplied by a limited or offline facility. These sorts of refinery issues have been minimal this spring, but the coming weeks will bear close attention. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.58, three cents more than last week. Florida's average of $3.67 rose four cents from last week. Georgias average of $3.51 rose nine cents, while Tennessee's average of $3.41 jumped seven cents from last week. Gas Prices Still S pringing Up!

Students at Hardee Senior High took a regular gas-powered go-kart and transformed it into a more eco-friendly ride. It started when Dr. Joseph Sim-mons, a professor at Florida Gulf Coast University, allowed the Science, Technology, Engi-neering & Math Club, or Alpha Zeta Pi, to partner with the university in a solar go-kart challenge. To get the high schoolers s tarted, the university gave Alpha Zeta Pi a go-kart, three large solar panels and an electric engine. In November, a team of AZPi members traveled to FGCU to start building the gokart model. STEM Coach Susan Barton said the goal was to create a gokart that ran completely on solar energy. She said that over the past few months, people such as teachers Rob Beatty and Kevin Ward, Alan Jay Automotive and P aul Wilkerson have been instrumental in helping the kids transform the go-kart as well as travel to and from FGCU. Last weekend, the students were able to show off their new ride at the High School Go-Kart Challenge at FGCU. In the presentation competi tion, the six AZPi students placed fourth out of 10 other high schools. The next day the team, which included Brandon Beatty, Rayna Parks, Meagan Shivers, Noah Valletutti, Gannon Wat-son and Wyatt Zieglar, competed in the Relay Race and Speed Race, and took fourth place in the relay. We were quite excited to come in fourth place since this was only our first year, and five other high schools had competed previously, said Barton. AZPi plans to make modifi cations and make it more aero dynamic and energy efficient, to be better prepared for next years go-kart challenge. COURTESY PHOTO T he Alpha Zeta Pi team competing at the High School Go-Kart Challenge at Florida Gulf Coast University includes (from left) Meagan Shivers, Noah Valletutti, Wyatt Zieglar, Brandon Beatty, Gannon Watson and Rayna Parks. Their solar powered go-kart came in fourth place in the presentation competition and relay race. HHS Go-Kart Takes 4th Place Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 Greetings once again! T his past week has been busy, as will the coming week. For those of you who are reading this column, I do need your input. Please feel free to contact me. I was not really clear last week about a couple of sporting issues. I do love high school football, with my favorite teams being the Hardee Wildcats and the Valparaiso Vikings from my hometown in Indiana. My col lege basketball favorites sometimes make it to the final 16, but have not gone beyond that level. I mistakenly thought the NCAA finals would be complete by the time my last column was published. I was wrong. But, the colleges and universities really gave us a ride for the whole series. The championship games were incredible! The first mission team from New Hope Baptist Church that went to Grenada, Nicaragua, to help Mitch and Judy Marsh with the local needs of their mission returned home safely on Tues day of last week. They gave an informative re-port during this past Sunday morning worship service. The members of this primary team were Pastor Chris Bishop, wife Tara and children Johnathan, Katelyn, Catherine, Lydia, Morgan and Alexander; Sue Mannery; and Grace Dubois. A second team will be returning to Nicaragua in the middle of June. Missionaries seem to abound from here in Hardee County, from Valda Long, who served many years in Africa before her time on earth was completed, to those who are presently serving in many areas. We need to always remember them for their service. Jay and Jan Cook and children serve in Argentina. Anthony and Sharon Rivers and their young family are presently in Southeast Asia, and Dan and Ashley Jenkins are in Africa. Another missionary duo, Shannon and Elizabeth Bradley, and their 11-month-old daughter Rebeka, have spent the last six months stateside, but will be returning to Prague in the Czech Republic next Tuesday. New Hope Baptist Church will be giving them a farewell send-off t his Sunday during and after the morning worship service. Shannon's parents are Hugh and Libby Bradley. Elizabeth's parents are Patricia and Ronald Wilson. Elizabeth's maternal grandparents are our former Hardee County sheriff, Newt Murdock, and his wife, Christine. Her paternal grandparents are the former Frank and Lenora Wilson. Birthdays and anniversaries abound for my family and friends in April, as they do for many others, I'm sure. So, I want to wish each of you the best ever for your s pecial day, and God bless one and all. This Sunday, Christians will celebrate Palm Sunday, the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the white donkey and was hailed as the Messiah. Looking forward to Resurrection Sunday, I will close for this time.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, April 10, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Local pros Edner Cherry and Ruben Ozuna have out-boxed their opponents in recent matches. Cherry, 32, under new man agement of Dan Birmingham of St. Petersburg, took his talent to Philadelphia at the Blue Horizon. The Cherry Bomb upped his record to 32-6-2 (17 KOs) with a unanimous decision over Robert Osiobe, 14-9-4 (6KOs), of Nigeria, who had gone the distance with former Inter-na tional Boxing Conference cham pion Rances Bartheleny. The super featherweight match went the full eight rounds, although Cherry had to fight to survive the final three rounds after a head butt opened a cut in the fifth as Osiobe came in head first. Cherry had hurt Osiobe three times earlier in the fight and had to weather the allout attack which followed. All three judges scored the fight for Cherry, 77-75, 79-73 and 78-74. If I hadnt come into the fight in such good shape, I may have lost it, said Cherry on Monday. He said he felt great getting back into the ring after a 13-month layoff (due to a former contract dispute). Peltz Boxing will be scheduling another bout for Cherry, per haps in the summer. Meanwhile, Ozuna, 19, is a busy fighter. He went to the Four Bears Casino in New Town, N. D. on Mar. 28 for a 135-pound bout against Wayne Smith and won a unanimous decision, dominating the fight from start to finish. Ozuna is already scheduled for two more bouts. One is Saturday at the Double Tree Hotel in Tampa under Delassio Pro motions. Daniel Lozano, Bowling Green pro, was also to be on that card but his bout was can celled. Ozuna will be in a fight in Verona, N.Y., at the Turner Casino on April 18. That bout should be on ESPN, if time al lows with other fights to be seen. Tori Ramirez, who suffered his first loss recently, is set for another bout April 19 in Tampa.

Softball Class ic in Sebring. Winners were (front row, from left) Jack Garnett, Special Athlete Sportsmanship; Lori Bustamante, Best Community Partner; and Mary Basso, Jonny J.T. Tanner Heart of Gold Award; (back row, from left) Tim Ritenour, Best Coach; Eddie Thomas, Best Special Athlete; Carey McQuaig, Hardee County Rookie of the Year; Francisco Her nandez, Community Partner Sportsmanship; Gwen Beavers, Joe Singha Memorial Rookie of the Year; and Donavan Harper, Coach Sportsmanship. It was a very emotional day for s everal local softball players as they fought back tears during an awards ceremony on March 22 for the 15th annual Special S.T.A.R.S. Softball Classic in Sebring. Special STARS recognized two athletes who died away last year by naming awards in their memory. The Jonny J.T. Tanner Heart of Gold Award was created in memory of Tanner, who lost his life in a hit-and-run accident last year shortly after the softball tourney. Tanner was not only a great softball player who was dedicated to playing with Spe cial STARS, but he went beyond the field to establish a friendship with one special athlete, William Dickson. Tanner made Dickson his honorary coach even though he could not play ball any more. They were best buds. The Heart of Gold Award is presented to an individual who goes beyond the ball field to reach out to people with disabilities to make them feel loved, appreciated and, above all, re spected. Dickson made a special trip from Hardee County to be at the tournament to present the award along with Tanner's widow, Can dice Day, and their children, Kelsey Day and Kalea Tanner. The family continued Jonny's legacy by playing on a softball team in the tourney this year. To ge ther they presented the award to Mary Basso of Lake Placid. Basso was the coach and sponsor of The Coffee News softball team. This was the same team that Dickson and Tanner played on together. She has been a sponsor at the tourney for several years and coached a team. She was there for Dickson during Tanner's funeral and organized her entire softball team to attend Dickson's farewell party when he left Highlands County to move to a different group home in Hardee. She also participates in other sports with Special STARS such as track and field and bowling. She also helps with numerous fundraisers to generate dollars for Special STARS. Second, the Joe Singha Me morial Rookie of the Year Award was created in memory of Singha, who died in February 2013. That award was presented once again to a special athlete who was playing for the first time on a team, and demon strated excellent playing skills, good sportsmanship and overall team spirit. Gwen Beavers of Sebring was this year's winner. Another new award was given to the Hardee County Rookie of the Year since this was the first year Hardee offered softball to its athletes. Hardee brought over a team and had several athletes compete in skills. The Rookie of t he Year for Hardee was Carey Mc-Quaig.

The 4-H state service theme is Serving those who serve others. Tabs can be collected by families and businesses and dropped off at the Hardee County Extension Office behind the Hardee Agri-Civic Center. In back row are Kiwanis President Lizette Ortega, Nell McCauley, Ruthie Erekson, Anna Erekson, Carolyn Wyatt, Denise Erekson, and in front row Destiny McCauley.

When I spoke with Tracy re cently, she told me how ex cited she was to work with TDN to help these women: "If I have the opportunity to help people, I'm going to take it. That's just who I am. This series just goes to show what you can do, and how important and impactful it can be on someone's life especially someone who has had a rough time just getting on her feet. It's so fun, and it means the world to them." Q: I finally was able to watch "Hatfields and McCoys," and I absolutely loved it. When can I see Bill Paxton in something like this again? Paul T., Scranton, Pa. A: Well, I can't tell you exactly when just yet, but I can tell you what. The History Channel has ordered "an eight-hour television event" called "Texas Rising," with Bill leading an all-star cast featuring Brendan Fraser, Ray Liotta, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Olivier Martinez, Michael Rapa port and many more. The series will detail the Texas Revolution and the rise of the legendary Texas Rangers, and is set to premiere in 2015. Q: My book club finished reading "The Astronaut Wives Club," and one of the ladies said she heard that it is being made into a TV show. Is that true? Danni W., via email A: ABC is indeed airing a 10part series called "The Astronaut Wives Club," based on the bestselling book by Lily Koppel, which tells the story of the women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history. The series premieres July 24 at 9/8c, and stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher, Odette Annable, Zoey Boyle and Azure Parsons. Q: Sharon Lawrence is one of my favorite actresses. What has she been up to? Deanna W., via email A: The multitalented actress who has starred in shows like "NYPD Blue," "Drop Dead Diva" and "Rizzoli and Isles," to name a scant few can be seen in Lifetime's "Starving in Suburbia," a heartbreaking drama about the dark and dangerous world of eating disorders. The movie premieres Saturday, April 26, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, and you can read my full-length interview with Sharon as we discuss this important movie, as well as some other projects she has coming up, at www.celebrityextraonline.com.

JV Girls Winding Down PHOTO BY JIM KELLY T he Hardee County Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, March 23, hosted a 4M meeting for members at TechRiver in the former PRECO building north of Wauchula. 4M is held the fourth Monday at 4 p.m. at the various chamber member locations. From left are Tonny Pazzaglia, director of select markets for Continuum Labs; Casey Dickson, chamber executive director; Bo Conerly, chamber director; Olivia Minshew, chamber director; Jessica Newman, Main Street Wauchula executive director; Keith Nadaskay, Wauchula mayor; and his wife, Christina Nadaskay. CHAMBER HOSTS 4M ANSWER: You have the classic symptoms of disembarkment syndrome, also called mal de debarquement. Whereas most people getting off a boat or ship will have the sensation of moving for a few hours, in people with this syndrome, the symptoms may continue for months or even years. It seems to be more likely in women, and may have an association with migraine headache. Interestingly, going back on a boat can make it better in the short term, but worse later. One treatment is clonazepam, which provides some short-term relief. Standard treatments for vertigo usually do not help. Fortunately, most cases do get better after some weeks or months, but 18 percent still have symptoms even a year later. An expert in balance problems, often an ENT doctor, would be most likely to be familiar with this condition. The booklet on vertigo ex plains dizziness in detail and outlines its treatment. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Roach No. 801W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. ANSWER: Foamy urine raises concern of excess protein. High amounts of protein in the urine could result from nephrotic syndrome, an indication of a serious kidney condition. Any doctor can do a urine test for protein; if it's positive, your doctor will have you collect all the urine you make in 24 hours to see how much protein there is. while. Thank you. ANSWER: Ice cream has more saturated fat and sugar than is good for you. People who want to be super-healthy don't eat ice cream at all. However, I am a believer that it's OK to indulge yourself once in a while in something that might not be the healthiest for you. Just make sure it's some thing closer to once a month than it is to once a day. Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

NOW ACCEPTING ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS HOSPITAL PATIENTS RISK INFECTION Hospital stays can make you sick. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that one quarter of patients in hospitals get serious infections. The study of more than 11,000 patients, reported in the New England Journal of Medi cine, looked at antibiotic-resis tant bacteria such as bacterium clostridium difficile (commonly know as c. diff) and methicillinresistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a staph infection, being acquired in hospitals. Devices, such as catheters and ven tilators, were included as the sources of infection. The study estimated that more than 700,000 infections were acquired in hospitals in one year alone. At the root of the massive numbers of antibiotic-resistant infections is the over-prescrip tion of antibiotics, which re duces their effectiveness. If you're due for hospitaliza tion, be bold about your own care. The CDC has a poster with these six steps to help avoid hos pital infections. 1) Talk to your doctor, ideally before you go into the hospital. Ask what they'll do to protect you against infections. If you have a catheter, will it be changed every day? How can you prepare in advance to guard against infection? 2) If no relatives or friends are around to represent you in the hospital, speak up! If you don't see medical staff washing hands in your room before touching you, assume it wasn't done and say something. 3) Ask if tests have been done to ensure that the right antibiotic is being used. 4) Know the signs of an in fection: redness and pain at a surgical site, as well as fever. 5) If you've been taking antibiotics, watch out for diarrhea. Tell your doctor as it could be c. difficile, which can be deadly. 6) Get your flu shots and other vaccinations to prevent in fections.

Oasis RV NewsBy Georgianna Mills Another season is over at Crystal Lake Village. It has been a different season. The weather has been colder this year and for longer periods, but we did not have to go through what a lot of our Northern families and friends did. There will be changes to the park as some of our long-time residents have decided to sell and stay at home. We have also lost some good friends this last season who will be missed. We also have a lot of new residents who have decided to buy or rent for next season. We are happy they decided on Crystal Lake. There are a lot of activities al ready lined up for next season.

The Cats face twin opponents this week in the final district encounter at Sebring on Tuesday and a trip to Lake Wales today (Thursday). There is a trio of final games of the season next week, a visit from Avon Park on Tuesday, a visit to Fort Meade on Wednesday and Senior Night next Thursday when 11 seniors will be honored. Class 5A, Region 3, District 11 playoffs are the week of April 21-25. U nder the new playoff format, the top seed hosts the fourth seed, while the second seed hosts the third seed. The two winners play for the championship at the field of the highest seed. As of Monday afternoon, Hardee was leading the playoff race with a 4-1 record. Lemon Bay was next at 3-2, having split with Hardee and also lost to Sebring. If Hardee wins the dis trict, the Cats would host the first and championship rounds. If Hardee downed Sebring on Tuesday, it would automatically be top seed. If, however, Hardee l ost to Sebring and Lemon Bay beat DeSoto, it would revert to each team having a 4-2 record and a coin toss to determine who was top seed and would host the playoffs. Hardee 6, Lake Placid 3 Hardee traveled to Lake Placid last Tuesday to challenge the Green Dragons on their turf and brought home a 6-3 win. The Cats were slow in getting on the board, stranding Hayden Lindsey in the first inning, Tyler Hewett in the second and Cody Spencer in the fourth. Meanwhile, Lake Placid plated a pair of runners in the first inning on a hit and pair of errors to take a 2-0 advantage. The Wildcats tied the score in the fifth frame. Luke Palmer was safe on an error, stole sec ond, went to third on an Ar mando Alamia sacrifice bunt and rode home on an error. With two down, Lindsey walked, stole second, went to third on a catchers error and home on a wild pitch. It was 2-2. Lake Placid forged back in front in the sixth inning on a sin gle, error and an RBI single to lead 3-2. Hardee rallied in the top of the seventh, and last, inning. With one away, Tanor Durden was safe on an error and another error put Jake Bolin aboard. Lindsey drew a walk and Kramer Royal smacked a 3-RBI double to right field. He came in on a Kris Johnson single to left. Johnson and Spencer were left on base when the third out ended the rally. When Lake Placid went down one, two, three in the home half of the sev enth, Hardee had the 6-3 win. H ardee 3, DeSoto 0 The Cats went to Arcadia to face district opponent DeSoto last Thursday and earned an other win behind the pitching of Spencer, who pitched one-hit ball. There was no score until the fourth inning, when the Wildcats plated a pair of runners. Royal started it when he drew a walk and went to second on an error. He got to third on a Johnson sacrifice fly and trotted home on a Spencer RBI single to right field. With two down, David Chevy Dolcater was safe on an error and a Luke Palmer single up the middle brought Spencer home. Hardee picked up an insur ance score in the top of the seventh. Durden was safe on an error by the third sacker, ad vanced on an error on a Lindsey hit and raced home on a catchers error to make the final score 3-0 when DeSoto failed to score in the home half of the inning.

Regarding your recent column on keeping cats off the counter: You're right, of course, about training cats when they're young. But felines are smart creatures, so even an old cat can learn new tricks. The key is to use their dislikes and/or their acute senses of hearing and smell. Most cats dislike getting wet. So, if the rattling pennies don't work, a small squirt gun or water pistol emphasis on "small" works remarkably well with training (not disci plining) felines to not jump on tables, etc. Aim for ears or neck. Avoid the eyes, of course. Cats differ from dogs in that dogs can be disciplined by the stick; cats are trained mainly by the carrot. So when your kitty cat has jumped down from the table, love him up. The same applies for various kitty cat bad habits, such as scratching the furniture, etc. One thing that doesn't ever work with a cat is swatting them, as one might do with a rolled up newspaper for a dog. Corporal punishment only in sults them. Also, for neighborhood cats prowling your garden, flowerbeds, etc., at night and yowl ing, black pepper sprinkled about is most effective.

C The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, April 10, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Two weeks into the season, the seven teams in the 2014 Mens Church Softball League are at it hot and heavy. Some games are hotly contested and some more one-sided as the teams struggle to show their abilities. San Alfonso, with a seasoned group, leads 4-0, but Bowling Green Baptist is also undefeated at 3-0. Behind them are Apostolic Lighthouse, at 2-1 with its only loss to San Alfonso; Real Life Ministries, also at 2-1 and only loss to San Alfonso; First Christian, St. Michaels Cath-olic and Floridas First Assem-bly. O ne of the closer games was the Apr. 1 Field 3 game between St. Michaels and Apostolic, which won the marathon game 45-23. Unfortunately, we dont have full names for many of the players but will report as best we can. Ruben Rivas, Chris and Jaime each put seven runs on the board for Apostolic, while Jesus Lalo Anselmo, Mike Davila and Dali had four apiece for St. Michaels. Meanwhile, on Field 4 on Apr. 1, Bowling Green nipped First Christian 10-9. Colton scored three times and Valentino Valley added a pair of s cores for Bowling Green, while Travis T-Mac McClenithan, Elias Ramirez and Randy Crews each chipped in with a pair of runs for First Christian. The Field 4 nightcap was also a marathon, with San Alfonso outlasting First Assembly 41-25. Brad Gilliard, Raul Garcia and Dale Roberts were each five-score hitters for San Al fonso, while Mikey R., Jeremy Mendoza and Brandon Holton each put a four-spot on the board for First Assembly. Men Start Softball Play By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate The 2014 boys track and field team had a big win in a fourteam meet in Lake Placid last week. And, the girls, who led until the final pair of events, placed third overall in one of the most hotly contested recent events. LaBelle and Lake Placid tied for the lead with 70 points apiece and Hardee had 66, while Avon Park had 51. The boys won by a good margin. The girls meet was very tight throughout, and our girls were leading until the final two events. None the less, we did pretty well on both sides with quite a few personal records and first-place finishes. We do not compete again until districts next Friday, commended Head Coach Rob Beatty. The district competition is April 11 at Sarasota Booker, with regionals April 16 at Tampa Berkeley Prep and the state meet May 2 at the University of North Florida campus. Girls Usually stellar soph Maria Munoz was not up to par in her only race, the 1,600 meter, where she placed a distant sec ond to Annelia Figueroa of La Belle. Crystal Avila was fifth and Angel Mancillas eighth for Hardee. Hardee did get a pair of firstplace finishes from junior Alli son Smith, who won both the shot put and discus. She threw 89-06 in the discus, with Mari bel DeLoera in sixth, Julissa Ortiz eighth and Isabel Abel ninth. In the shot put, Smith three 29-10.00, nipping Imani Tate of Avon Park, who threw 29-09.00. DeLoera was fifth, Abel sixth and Savannah Miller 12th.

It pays to a dvertise in your Hometown Newspaper We are saving this space just for Y YO OU U! !The HeraldAdvocate 773-3255 Collecting A: Alan W. Livington created the original concept for Bozo the Clown. Pinto Colvig, a former vaudeville headliner, radio actor and, yes, circus performer, be came the voice of Bozo on the recorded stories issued by Capitol Records. The set you have was issued in 1946 and it became so popular that the company began promoting Bozo as Bozo the Capitol Clown. In 1949, KTTV-TV in Los Angeles was the first to air a Bozo televised series, and it soon became one of the most popular syndicated pro grams for children. "Bozo at the Circus" is not considered a rarity. Most of the copies I've seen in shops and at antiques malls have been priced in the $15 to $25 range. A: I contacted several costume jewelry ex perts, and they seem to agree that the two pieces you listed are worth at least $100 each, perhaps much more. With that in mind and considering that there are other pieces in your col lection, the answer is yes, it is worth appraising. There are two types of appraisals, verbal and written. The verbal appraisal is less expensive, but if you are having this done for insurance purposes, a written opinion is always best. A: Your flatware was pro duced by the Kirk Stieff Corporation, which began in 1815 as Kirk & Smith. The Stieff Corporation acquired the Kirk familyowned company in 1979. Your pattern was introduced in 1962. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com.

Tamme Fussell (at right) assists Luke Cantu, who is flat on the ground holding the steer's head steady. Peck Harris is out of the photo, having roped the steer. The roper is not allowed to dismount during this event. They competed for the JTF Performance Horses team. The Fulford Cattle team tries to get control of the wild cow, with R oxanne Murphy (far right) holding onto its tail, in the wild-cow decorating event. Rodeo Bits B y Kathy Ann Gregg RANCH RODEO SHOOTOUT, PART TWO T he second half of the Ranch Rodeo shootout took place in Okeechobee on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekend last year. The Cattlemens Association had decided to return to the old arena on U.S. 441 north of town, and this was the first event there (and for that I am thankful, I love the feel of that old open arena!). On Saturday, we only had the M&H Cattle team competing, with William Perry. They received a no-time in only one event, the double muggin, as the rope slipped off of the steers head. Their bronc rider, Andy Kisela, had a great ride of 72, and they completed the roping and branding event in 1:06.5 (which included the penalties for extra calves crossing the line), the team-sorting event in 1:32.5, and the wild-cow decorating event in 1:00.3. This was good enough for them to place in the Top 10 teams, which means they had to come back on Labor Day Monday to do it all over again! Our other five teams all competed on Sunday: Stevens Land & Cattle, JTF Performance Horses, M&N Cattle, and Donald Bear Murphy on the Arrow G Cattle team and his wife, Roxanne, on the Fulford Cattle team. (Arrow G was scheduled for Saturday, but leave it to them to show up on the wrong day!) The winning bronc ride was a score of 76, so Robert Fussells score of 68 and Brandon Dieters score of 62 (a low bucking horse dragged down this score), and Marshall Godseys ride (I never did get his score) at least gave them needed points. Cole Fulford of Rox annes team scored 74 for a second-place finish, and Bears teammate Adam Turtle came in with a 60. Next up was the roping and branding event. The women are very thankful when the cowboys manage to land the calf near the branding circle running in that dirt can be very difficult (just ask Tamme Fussell!). For some reason, they didnt announce the time for Stevens Land (again!), but they did get the job done, as did M&N Cattle with a time of 1:20.3 (only because they received penalties for almost the entire herd of calves crossing the line before theirs did!), and Roxanne ran fast enough for 1:08.2. Peck Harris of JTF Performance Horses ended up roping the calf around its body on the first loop (an illegal catch), then missed on the next loop, to receive a no-time, as did Arrow G. The double muggin saw times for only Roxannes team (in at 33.4 seconds) and Stevens Land (in at 53.2 seconds). JTF Performance Horses just ran out of time in getting the steer tied, and M&N Cattle failed to rope the steer, as did Arrow G. Then came the team sorting-event. All five of our teams completed this event, with Stevens Land in at 51.5 seconds, M&N Cattle in at 53.3 seconds, Roxannes team in at 58.3 seconds, JTF Perform ance Horses (with Jimmy Fussell on Gracie, who is now owned by Millie Bolin) in at 1:11.5, and Bears team in at 1:14. The last event was the wild-cow decorating, and this one was a hoot, with teams falling over themselves, putting their hands on the cows butt (in a not-very-nice place!), and all sorts of other gyra tions! Roxannes team was the fastest (of our teams), with a time of 39.7 seconds. Then came M&N Cattle in at 40.1 seconds, but they had a five-second penalty for an extra cow crossing the line. Stevens Land did it in 1:02.7, but JTF Performance Horses managed two illegal head catches for a no-time, and Arrow G failed to rope the cow. So that meant that Stevens Land & Cattle, M&N Cattle, and Fulford Cattle all joined M&H for another day of ranch rodeo on Monday, Labor Day, to compete for the $10,000 first-place monies. And that will be covered next time! Keep these Bits, boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and shell keep you covered. Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! Marshall Godsey is the bronc rider for the Stevens Land & C attle team.

Signs of abused or neglected animals can be seen all over theworld, but rescue shelters suchas HART and Trust Again PetShelter (TAPS) in HardeeCounty see them more oftenthan most. Recently both shel ters have taken in animals withclear signs of abuse. TAPS was left with what Jill Edgley, founder of the pet shel ter, calls a “trash can baby.”These are animals who arefound in trash cans. This was thesecond “trash baby” left at TAPSin as many weeks. Other recent cases of abused animals ending up at TAPS in clude a 4-week-old kitten, tiedup and left in a trash bag. An other cat, which Edgley namedChance, came to the shelter withone eye having exploded andneeding immediate attention. In these cases, and others in volving abuse, Edgley takes theanimals to the vet so they can beevaluated. She also de-wormsand de-fleas all of the animalsonce she gets them to the petshelter. In the case of the “trash baby,” now named Buddy, histail was cut to a point where thebone was left exposed. The tailwas infected and had to betreated so the infection wouldn’tget worse or spread. His short life has now dra matically changed for the better.Edgley says he is in good spiritsand was recently sent to anotherrescue shelter, Passion 4 Pits thathelps get pit bulls adopted. But Buddy is not the first an imal to be transported to anothershelter. Edgley says about 40 to50 cats have been flown ordriven to their new homes inBoston, Detroit, New York,Kentucky, San Diego and otherstates across the country. Shealso networks with centersacross Florida to see if they areable to place animals that shecan’t. There are several ways to avoid having to find homes forso many animals. Edgley says if someone is thinking about owning a pet,that person should be ready tocommit for at least 10 years.One of the examples she sets isof cats. She says they are veryemotional and will sometimes“commit suicide” by refusing toeat if left behind by an owner. She also asks that people re search the breed of the animalthey want to adopt, to see if thatanimal’s temperament is com patible to how they live. Edgleyalso emphasizes the importanceof spaying and neutering. Sockalosky, from HART, says if an owner no longer wantsa pet, as a kindness contact ashelter and don’t just dump theanimal somewhere. She alsourged people not to leave theirpets at Animal Control becauseshe says if a person willinglyhands over their animal, AnimalControl would then have theright to euthanize the pet with out first holding it for five dayslike a stray roaming the streets. One of HART’s most wellknown cases is of “Hope.” Hopewas found in Arcadia after herowner intentionally set her onfire. A member of HART wasdriving through the area at thattime, spotted Hope and broughther to the shelter. HART is now the owner of Hope and as such has taken onthe responsibility of caring forher needs, but seeing as most ofher body was burned and shesustained third-degree burns, hermedical bills are extensive. Thankfully people from all over the world, including Rus sia, England, Thailand, Polandand more, have been touched bythis brave dog’s story and havedonated money to her recovery.So far, over $47,000 has beendonated for Hope’s care. Hope is currently at a differ ent facility as she gets more ex tensive treatments for hermultiple injuries. Sockaloskysays she is due to be back atHART sometime next week.Hope currently has laser therapyto help with her burns and has acritical-care doctor, an ophthal mologist and a dermatologist. Sockalosky says Hope’s legs and face have healed, howeverwork stills needs to be done toher chest, under her chin and hergroin area where she was alsoburned. Although her injuries are hor rific, doctors said they are im pressed with how well Hope ishealing, even calling it miracu lous. Sockalosky says this is themost horrific case of animalabuse she has ever come across. However she is surprised that Hope still trusts humans. She says that from day one, Hope would look at anyone whoshe came in contact with andwag her tail and even lick theirface if she were close enough. Inseeing this, Sockalosky knewHope wanted to live and decidedto do everything to help her doso. Good things have also come from Hope’s injuries, as she re quired a lot of help, new equip ment was acquired to help herheal. This equipment will laterbe used on other dogs to helpwith burns or even arthritis. Sockalosky hopes that once this fighter overcomes her in juries, she will become a sort oftherapy dog for kids. She wantsto show kids through Hope that“no matter how bad things are,it will get better.” To help TAPS and dogs and cats such as Buddy or if lookingto adopt go to the websitetaps2646.webs.com or the Face book page, TAPS Trust AgainPet Shelter or try reaching theshelter at 399-9898. Sokalosky asks pet owners to reach out for help if they needany sort of help in caring fortheir animals. She can bereached at 781-2045. Donations for Hope can be made through PayPal by goingto hardeeanimalrescueteam.-weebly.com, or by mailing acheck to P.O. Box 2486, Wau-chula, FL 33873. Toys and blan kets can also be sent to that P.O.Box. Dogs and cats are alsoavailable for adoption fromHART. And, as Sockalosky says, keep a lookout and watch out foranimals and don’t hesitate to re port abuse if you see it.

Many earlier goals have not been met. Continuum hassaid potential investors of $5 million (in money or sales contractsfor the product) want the IDA to commit the extra $2 million.

The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded is thehighest since August. Prices inFlorida, Georgia and Tennesseereached their highest levelssince March 2013, September,and August respectively. Prices in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee are exceeding year-over-year levels, because at thistime last year, pump prices weretumbling from an unusual lateFebruary peak. In 2011 and2012, prices followed a moretraditional trend peaking in Mayand April, respectively. “Prices may move a little higher in the coming weeks,”said Mark Jenkins, spokesman,AAA The Auto Club Group.“However, the end is likely insight for many drivers across thecountry. The exception to thistrend could be motorists in re gions where unexpected re-fin ery or distribution issues causeprices to temporarily spike.” Every spring refiners are re quired to switch to producingsummer-blend gasoline by May1, with that gasoline required tobe sold at the pumps by June 1.The seasonal refinery mainte nance and this actual change-over itself increases thepossibility of a disruption to pro duction, which can send priceshigher in an area that is normallysupplied by a limited or offlinefacility. These sorts of refinery issues have been minimal this spring,but the coming weeks will bearclose attention. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleadedgasoline is $3.58, three centsmore than last week. Florida'saverage of $3.67 rose four centsfrom last week. Georgia’s average of $3.51 rose nine cents, while Tennes-see's average of $3.41 jumpedseven cents from last week. Gas Prices Still Springing Up!

Students at Hardee Senior High took a regular gas-poweredgo-kart and transformed it into amore eco-friendly ride. It startedwhen Dr. Joseph Sim-mons, aprofessor at Florida Gulf CoastUniversity, allowed the Science,Technology, Engi-neering &Math Club, or Alpha Zeta Pi, topartner with the university in asolar go-kart challenge. To get the high schoolers started, the university gaveAlpha Zeta Pi a go-kart, threelarge solar panels and an electricengine. In November, a team ofAZPi members traveled toFGCU to start building the go-kart model. STEM Coach Susan Barton said the goal was to create a go-kart that ran completely on solarenergy. She said that over the past few months, people such asteachers Rob Beatty and Kevin Ward, Alan Jay Automotive andPaul Wilkerson have been in-strumental in helping the kidstransform the go-kart as well astravel to and from FGCU. Last weekend, the students were able to show off their newride at the High School Go-KartChallenge at FGCU. In the presentation competi tion, the six AZPi studentsplaced fourth out of 10 otherhigh schools. The next day the team, which included Brandon Beatty, RaynaParks, Meagan Shivers, NoahValletutti, Gannon Wat-son andWyatt Zieglar, competed in theRelay Race and Speed Race, andtook fourth place in the relay. “We were quite excited to come in fourth place since thiswas only our first year, and fiveother high schools had competedpreviously,” said Barton. AZPi plans to make modifi cations and make it more aero dynamic and energy efficient, tobe better prepared for nextyear’s go-kart challenge. COURTESY PHOTO The Alpha Zeta Pi team competing at the High School Go-Kart Challenge at Florida Gulf Coast University includes (from left) Meagan Shivers, Noah Valletutti, W yatt Zieglar, Brandon Beatty, Gannon Watson and Rayna Parks.

HHS Go-Kart Takes 4th Place Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 Greetings once again!This past week has been busy, as will the coming week. Forthose of you who are readingthis column, I do need yourinput. Please feel free to contactme. I was not really clear last week about a couple of sportingissues. I do love high schoolfootball, with my favorite teamsbeing the Hardee Wildcats andthe Valparaiso Vikings from myhometown in Indiana. My col lege basketball favorites some times make it to the final 16, buthave not gone beyond that level. I mistakenly thought the NCAA finals would be completeby the time my last column waspublished. I was wrong. But, thecolleges and universities reallygave us a ride for the whole se ries. The championship gameswere incredible! The first mission team from New Hope Baptist Church thatwent to Grenada, Nicaragua, tohelp Mitch and Judy Marsh withthe local needs of their missionreturned home safely on Tues day of last week. They gave aninformative re-port during thispast Sunday morning worshipservice. The members of this primary team were Pastor Chris Bishop,wife Tara and children John-athan, Katelyn, Catherine,Lydia, Morgan and Alexander;Sue Mannery; and GraceDubois. A second team will be returning to Nicaragua in the middleof June. Missionaries seem to abound from here in Hardee County,from Valda Long, who servedmany years in Africa before hertime on earth was completed, tothose who are presently servingin many areas. We need to always remember them for their service. Jay andJan Cook and children serve inArgentina. Anthony and SharonRivers and their young familyare presently in Southeast Asia,and Dan and Ashley Jenkins arein Africa. Another missionary duo, Shannon and Elizabeth Bradley,and their 11-month-old daughterRebeka, have spent the last sixmonths stateside, but will be re turning to Prague in the CzechRepublic next Tuesday. NewHope Baptist Church will be giving them a farewell send-offthis Sunday during and after themorning worship service. Shannon's parents are Hugh and Libby Bradley. Elizabeth'sparents are Patricia and RonaldWilson. Elizabeth's maternalgrandparents are our formerHardee County sheriff, NewtMurdock, and his wife, Chris-tine. Her paternal grandparentsare the former Frank and LenoraWilson. Birthdays and anniversaries abound for my family andfriends in April, as they do formany others, I'm sure. So, I want to wish each of you the best everfor your special day, and Godbless one and all. This Sunday, Christians will celebrate Palm Sunday, the dayJesus rode into Jerusalem on thewhite donkey and was hailed asthe Messiah. Looking forward toResurrection Sunday, I willclose for this time.

ANSWER: You have the clas sic symptoms of disembarkmentsyndrome, also called mal de de barquement. Whereas most peo ple getting off a boat or ship willhave the sensation of moving fora few hours, in people with thissyndrome, the symptoms maycontinue for months or evenyears. It seems to be more likelyin women, and may have an as sociation with migraine head-ache. Interestingly, going backon a boat can make it better inthe short term, but worse later. One treatment is clonazepam, which provides some short-termrelief. Standard treatments forvertigo usually do not help. For tunately, most cases do get betterafter some weeks or months, but18 percent still have symptomseven a year later. An expert inbalance problems, often an ENTdoctor, would be most likely tobe familiar with this condition. The booklet on vertigo ex plains dizziness indetail and outlines itstreatment.

NOW ACCEPTING ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS HOSPITAL PATIENTS RISK INFECTION Hospital stays can make you sick. A study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention discovered that one quarter of patients in hospitals get serious infections. The study of more than 11,000 patients, reported in the New England Journal of Medi cine, looked at antibiotic-resis tant bacteria such as bacterium clostridium difficile (commonly know as c. diff) and methicillinresistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), a staph infection, being acquired in hospitals. Devices, such as catheters and ven tilators, were included as the sources of infection. The study estimated that more than 700,000 infections were acquired in hospitals in one year alone. At the root of the massive numbers of antibiotic-resistant infections is the over-prescrip tion of antibiotics, which re duces their effectiveness. If you're due for hospitaliza tion, be bold about your own care. The CDC has a poster with these six steps to help avoid hos pital infections. 1) Talk to your doctor, ideally before you go into the hospital. Ask what they'll do to protect you against infections. If you have a catheter, will it be changed every day? How can you prepare in advance to guard against infection? 2) If no relatives or friends are around to represent you in the hospital, speak up! If you don't see medical staff washing hands in your room before touching you, assume it wasn't done and say something. 3) Ask if tests have been done to ensure that the right antibiotic is being used. 4) Know the signs of an in fection: redness and pain at a surgical site, as well as fever. 5) If you've been taking antibiotics, watch out for diarrhea. Tell your doctor as it could be c. difficile, which can be deadly. 6) Get your flu shots and other vaccinations to prevent in fections.

The weather has been colder this year and for longer periods, but we did not have to go through what a lot of our Northern families and friends did. There will be changes to the park as some of our long-time residents have decided to sell and stay at home. We have also lost some good friends this last season who will be missed. We also have a lot of new residents who have decided to buy or rent for next season. We are happy they decided on Crystal Lake. There are a lot of activities al ready lined up for next season. This has been a jam-filled sea son, and sometimes it was hard to keep up with all that was going on. Everyone has had a lot of fun and now we are gear ing down for the long trip home.

Regarding your recent column on keeping cats off the counter: You're right, of course, about training cats when they're young. But felines are smart creatures, so even an old cat can learn new tricks. The key is to use their dislikes and/or their acute senses of hearing and smell. Most cats dislike getting wet. So, if the rattling pennies don't work, a small squirt gun or water pistol emphasis on "small" works remarkably well with training (not disci plining) felines to not jump on tables, etc. Aim for ears or neck. Avoid the eyes, of course. Cats differ from dogs in that dogs can be disciplined by the stick; cats are trained mainly by the carrot. So when your kitty cat has jumped down from the table, love him up. The same applies for various kitty cat bad habits, such as scratching the furniture, etc. One thing that doesn't ever work with a cat is swatting them, as one might do with a rolled up newspaper for a dog. Corporal punishment only in sults them. Also, for neighborhood cats prowling your garden, flowerbeds, etc., at night and yowl ing, black pepper sprinkled about is most effective.

Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg RANCH RODEO SHOOTOUT, PART TWO The second half of the Ranch Rodeo shootout took place in Okeechobee on the Saturday and Sunday of Labor Day weekendlast year. The Cattlemen’s Association had decided to return to theold arena on U.S. 441 north of town, and this was the first eventthere (and for that I am thankful, I love the feel of that old openarena!). On Saturday, we only had the M&H Cattle team competing, with William Perry. They received a no-time in only one event, thedouble muggin’, as the rope slipped off of the steer’s head. Theirbronc rider, Andy Kisela, had a great ride of 72, and they completedthe roping and branding event in 1:06.5 (which included the penal ties for extra calves crossing the line), the team-sorting event in1:32.5, and the wild-cow decorating event in 1:00.3. This was good enough for them to place in the Top 10 teams, which means they had to come back on Labor Day Monday to do itall over again! Our other five teams all competed on Sunday: Stevens Land & Cattle, JTF Performance Horses, M&N Cattle, and Donald “Bear”Murphy on the Arrow G Cattle team and his wife, Roxanne, on theFulford Cattle team. (Arrow G was scheduled for Saturday, but leaveit to them to show up on the wrong day!) The winning bronc ride was a score of 76, so Robert Fussell’s score of 68 and Brandon Dieter’s score of 62 (a low bucking horsedragged down this score), and Marshall Godsey’s ride (I never didget his score) at least gave them needed points. Cole Fulford of Rox anne’s team scored 74 for a second-place finish, and Bear’s team mate Adam Turtle came in with a 60. Next up was the roping and branding event. The women are very thankful when the cowboys manage to land the calf near thebranding circle — running in that dirt can be very difficult (just askTamme Fussell!). For some reason, they didn’t announce the timefor Stevens Land (again!), but they did get the job done, as did M&NCattle with a time of 1:20.3 (only because they received penaltiesfor almost the entire herd of calves crossing the line before theirsdid!), and Roxanne ran fast enough for 1:08.2. Peck Harris of JTF Performance Horses ended up roping the calf around its body on the first loop (an illegal catch), then missedon the next loop, to receive a no-time, as did Arrow G. The double muggin’ saw times for only Roxanne’s team (in at 33.4 seconds) and Stevens Land (in at 53.2 seconds). JTF Perform ance Horses just ran out of time in getting the steer tied, and M&NCattle failed to rope the steer, as did Arrow G. Then came the team sorting-event. All five of our teams com pleted this event, with Stevens Land in at 51.5 seconds, M&N Cattlein at 53.3 seconds, Roxanne’s team in at 58.3 seconds, JTF Perform ance Horses (with Jimmy Fussell on Gracie, who is now owned byMillie Bolin) in at 1:11.5, and Bear’s team in at 1:14. The last event was the wild-cow decorating, and this one was a hoot, with teams falling over themselves, putting their hands on thecow’s butt (in a not-very-nice place!), and all sorts of other gyra tions! Roxanne’s team was the fastest (of our teams), with a time of 39.7 seconds. Then came M&N Cattle in at 40.1 seconds, but theyhad a five-second penalty for an extra cow crossing the line. StevensLand did it in 1:02.7, but JTF Performance Horses managed two il legal head catches for a no-time, and Arrow G failed to rope the cow. So that meant that Stevens Land & Cattle, M&N Cattle and Fulford Cattle all joined M&H for another day of ranch rodeo onMonday, Labor Day, to compete for the $10,000 first-place monies.And that will be covered next time! Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls! Marshall Godsey is the bronc rider for the Stevens Land &Cattle team.
