By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate Two young Hardee County men who made seductive posts on the Facebook pages of 12year-old girls will now spend time behind bars for it. In each case, the men con versed online with the girls for months, with their comments es calating to the point of asking the children to sneak out of their houses to meet them for sex. T hough the 2012 incidents were unrelated, both reports came in to the Hardee County Sheriffs Office within days of each other, and now both of fenders have been sentenced. Shane Allen Mizrahi, now 22, formerly of 1313 Mockingbird Road, Wauchula, was the first to be sentenced in Hardee Circuit Court for the felony crime of using a computer to seduce a c hild. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle imposed a two-year term in Florida State Prison. After his release from prison, Mizrahi is to serve 30 months on super vised probation, the judge added. Further, Ezelle ordered him designated as a sexual offender. Caleb Tamayo, now 20, for merly of 520 Palmetto St., Bow ling Green, was the last to hear his fate. He was sentenced by Ezelle on Tuesday of last week. He, too, was sent to Florida State Prison for two years. He will be placed on supervised probation for 30 months following his release from prison.

RIDIN & ROPIN By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate A state road project in Hardee County has shut down. Motorists will have to contend with SR 64 barricades and nar row lanes quite a while longer. At present, it appears the work will not be completed until late summer or fall. Work on the SR 64 project just east of the U.S. 17 intersection came to a stop last week when the construction company Empower Inc. shut its doors and defaulted. Thats the report Monday from Robin Stublen, media specialist with the District 1 state Department of Transportation office in Bartow. Stublen confirmed that Empower went out of business and left the half-million dollar project still unfinished. The project has been turned over to the bonding company, which will be responsible for completing an audit on the amount of work done, what work remains and obtaining a contractor to complete the project. The original plan, well over a year ago, was to change the .02mile portion of the road to re move the dip which had flooded w henever there was a hard rain. The main plan was to raise the road four-to-five feet to elimi nate the flooding issue. The full project was to install drainage ditches on the north side of the roadway and change the elevation of the road from Pear Street east to Cracker Trail, building a gravity wall to sup port the new roadway while installing new curbs, gutters and guardrails and repaving the road. Initial plans were for the work to be completed by late 2013. That was later changed to the spring of 2014. Motorists using SR 64 East have faced detour lanes as work was under way on each side of the roadway. First, the detour was on the north side until the south portion of the road was elevated. It presently has barri cades right along the original center dividing line and two nar row lanes on the south side of the road, while work began on the north side. Steublen said several resi dents asked about the SR 64 issue during the Open House at the Zolfo Springs Town Hall See SR 642A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate Are you still thinking of running for office, but remain wary of the demands? Then remember, the non-partisan Hardee County School Board is an excellent starting point for those interested in serving this community. Its twice-monthly meetings typi cally last less than 20 minutes, and generally address just one or two items on the Action Agenda. T he public rarely at-tends. No other governmental entity in the county, which includes three municipalities and their commissions, meets for less time and considers fewer issues. Three seats are currently up for grabs on the School Board, and its members are paid $26,334 a year. So far, only one of the three slots has drawn anyone inter ested in running against the in cumbent. And if you are contemplating more of a challenge, then the Hardee County Commission may be the place to serve your county. Its meetings average roughly 2-1/2 hours about three times a month, and examine a multitude of items. A vocal public often is in attendance. Two seats are open, and county commissioners are paid $31,128 annually. Those elected to either board serve four-year terms. Up for election in 2014 are School Board districts 1, 4 and 5. Those positions now belong to Paul Samuels, Jan Platt and Thomas Trevino, respectively. On the ballot for the County Commission are districts 2 and 4. Sue Birge and Grady Johnson, respectively, are the incumbents. Deputy Supervisor Lisa Lamboy at the Elections Office said this week that, for the School Board, Samuels and Platt have completed the petition process, while Trevino has just begun it. P latt has two challengers to date, Eugenia Larsen and Garry McWhorter. No one has shown an interest in either Samuels or Trevinos seats. For the County Commission, Lamboy said Birge and oppo nent Judy Wilson have com pleted the petition process, but opponent Steven Anthony Plum m er II has not. For District 4, Johnson has now returned his petition, she noted, as has challenger Russell Melendy. To get ones name on the ballot for any of these open five seats, a filing fee must be paid See OFFICE 2A

By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Life is a carnival, full of unexpected surprises. Cancer is an unwanted sur prise that affects many. This years Relay For Life theme is Carnival of Hope. The theme is meant to encourage a good time as participants raise money to help find a cure for cancer. And hope will reign, as will plenty of fun activities, this weekend at Wildcat Stadium. The American Cancer Society started Relay For Life as a way to bring communities to gether in the fight against this disease. This annual event is both joyous and somber, as survivors are present to celebrate their victory against cancer and those who lost the battle are remembered. The official website says, Every year, the Relay For Life movement raises more than $400 million. The American Cancer Society puts these donations to work, investing in groundbreaking research in every type of cancer and provid ing free information and serv ices to cancer patients and their caregivers. The relay begins on Saturday at noon and will continue until 5 a.m. on Sunday. The chair w oman of the Hardee County Relay For Life Chapter, DeAnna Mullins, said they decided to start the marathon event on a Saturday instead of a Friday so more kids can get involved. Although long, there is no shortage of events or fun. The opening ceremonies are at 6 p.m., but there is plenty to do before then. Performer John T. Rhey will be the first to sing at the relay. A three-legged race will begin at 1 p.m., and then Caylah Dixon will follow up with a performance at 1:30 p.m. At 2 p.m. there will be a water balloon toss and then at 2:30 PH Factor will perform. A hula-hoop contest will begin at 3:30 p.m. and then the sur vivors registration starts at 4 p.m., as does the cake walk. Gospel Jubilee of First Baptist Church will perform at 4:30 p.m. The popular silent auction starts at 5 and ends at 7:15 p.m. Luminary sales will be from 5 to 8 p.m. At 5:30 things will get a little messy, as there will be an auc tion for the right to throw a pie in the face of a county commissioner! The opening ceremonies are up next. Presentation of the colors will be by Hardee Senior High Schools Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps, the National Anthem will be sung by high schooler Rachel Burton and the invocation will be offered by Jim Harris. One of the best moments of the event begins shortly after. The Survivor VIP Victory Lap, Caregiver Lap and Team Lap traverse the track and show that cancer has not won. The survivors dinner is at 6:30, where the musical talents of Carl Bryant, otherwise known as Elvis, will add to the celebratory atmosphere among the diners. Judging of the overnight campsites will take place at 7 p.m., and then the Ken Weiss auction starts at 7:30 and ends at 9 p.m. All will then view the lumi nary ceremony, at 9 p.m., and then will remember their loved ones who are survivors, are fighting cancer or who did not survive their illness through a silent lap around the track at 10 p.m. Mr. and Mrs. Relay will then be crowned at 10:30 p.m. and a sponsor lap will begin at 11. At 11:30, there will be a Cheetos toss. Open-mic time will begin a t midnight, and then there will be a balloon pop at 1 a.m. At 2 a.m. teams will have a chance to compete in a relay race called Slip, Slap, Slop, Wrap. Four team members com pete, and will begin with slip ping on a shirt, slapping on a hat, slopping on sunscreen and wrapping on some sunglasses. The bedhead lap will be at 2:30 a.m. and then at 3 a.m. there is a frozen T-shirt contest. Players have to tie a shirt in a knot, freeze it and then untie it and put it on. The fight-back lap will start at 4 a.m. and then the closing ceremonies will be at 5 a.m. Mullins says it will be lots of fun for the entire family. She says there is much more to it than just walking all night long, and everyone will have a great time. Families are encouraged to attend. There will be bouncy houses for kids to enjoy and several sta tions will be selling food, in cluding nachos, hamburgers, turkey legs and much more. Relay For Life will begin at noon on Saturday at Wildcat Stadium in Wauchula. Survivor registration starts at 4 p.m. Cancer Relay For Life This Weekend Kellys Column B y Jim Georgianna Mills loves staying at the Oasis RV Park in Zolfo S prings. She and her husband like a small town and have wintered here for 10 years. Their main home is near Warren, Ohio. She had breast cancer four years ago, and after surgery, chemo, radiation and reconstructive surgery is cancer-free today. Her doctor said to avoid sugar and artificial sweeteners like aspartame, greatly reduce eating red meat and dairy products, eat more vegetables and fruits, walk and exercise. Her weight dropped from 165 to 125 but she regained 20 pounds and is losing weight again. She drinks no sodas. It takes concentration, self-discipline and self-control. Georgianna likes Wauchula and is close enough to drive to pop ulated areas like Sebring, Orlando and Tampa. U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama also encourages children and adults to exercise and eat healthy. A local grandparent has written an anonymous letter over a con cern of irresponsible drivers crossing the grass medium to avoid a one-minute delay and causing major chaos over the parking area when picking up children in the afternoon at Hardee Junior High School. She is concerned a child will be hurt and that adult drivers should set a good example to children. Superintendent of Schools David Durastanti said the matter will be looked into. Copies were supposed to be sent to School Board members, the superintendent, sheriff, and school principal. The school has been open about eight years, and there have been no accidents so far, Durastanti noted. Durastanti noted this is the last year of the FCAT in the schools, and they are to be replaced next year with a Florida Standards test, which is tougher but based on the federal Common Core test. He did not like the FCAT and does not like the new proposed test, saying the sample questions he saw do not make common sense and are not practical. The Environmental Protection Agency says Americans should be careful to drink clean water. Toxic pollutants that enter the water supply include aluminum, arsenic, lead, manganese, mercury, nitrogen, phosphorus, selenium and zinc. Mosaic reported 2013 profits of $1.1 billion, down from last years profit of $1.9 billion, reported Lakeland Ledger writer Kevin Bouffard. Mosaic recently bought CF, its 22,000 acres in Hardee, phosphate mine, fertilizer plant, warehouse, and Tampa Port terminal. The deal was estimated at $1.4 billion. Heartland Crime Stoppers in 2012 received over 1,800 tips, resulting in 206 arrests and $49,035 approved in rewards. A caller is eligible for a cash reward of up to $3,000 and will remain anonymous. Call 1-800-226-8477. The mission of Peace River Center is to engage, restore and em power individuals in our community to reach their fullest potential. Peace River Center is a private not-for-profit community mental health organization serving the residents of Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties for 65 years. Peace River Center serves families in crisis, children and adults in need, as well as the severly and per sistently mentally ill. PRC also provides two domestic violence shelterers, a Rape Recovery and Resource Center, substance abuse treatment pro grams, 24-hour crisis lines and intervention to the communities, and has added a Primary Care Wellness Clinic in Lakeland to address physical health needs. PRC served nearly 11,000 individuals last year. Among those served were over 400 women and children who sought safety in domestic violence shelters and over 3,800 children began the journey of healing through a variety of psychiatric services. There is an office in Wauchula. At least one Herald-Advocate reader feels that President Barack Obama should be honored as Americas No. 1 gun salesman of the year. The annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life will be held Saturday at the Hardee Football Stadium beginning at noon. The annual National Day of Prayer local event will be held Thursday, May 1, at noon at Wauchulas Heritage Park.

Matthews, a 2007 H ardee High School graduate, will perform on the Ellen DeGeneres Show on television at 4 p.m. Friday. Matthews, 24, performed on Easter Sunday at Carnegie Hall in New York City.

Registration O pens At CollegeFACEBOOKContinued From 1ASR 64Continued From 1AOFFICEContinued From 1A Tamayo also was handed the s exual offender designation. Allegations against Mizrahi were the first to be made, on July 10 of 2012, Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sher iffs Office noted. A father reported finding sexual messages on his 12-year-old daughters Facebook page, writ ten by an older male. The father gave authorities permission to assume his childs online iden tity and make posts, the major added. Det. David Drake began the investigation by reviewing mes sages on the childs page, find ing conversations with Mizrahi from Nov. 6, 2011, up to July 10, 2012. There never was a point in which the child solicited or enticed Mizrahi, Drake alleged in his report on the case. The detective noted that, early on, there were several mentions of the girls age, with Mizrahi repeating that she was only 12. On Dec. 21, 2011, he al legedly commented on a photo of the girl, Ummm. I dont want to say anything. Ill feel like a pedo. Lol. He also tells the girl that he is 20 years old. Basic conversations continued off and on, Drake said, but the topic of the girls curves came up on April 27, 2012. By July 6 of that year, Mizrahi allegedly was asking the girl to meet him to be alone with him. Just ask to go on a walk, he al legedly prompted the girl, adding, Well have fun. Mizrahi proceeded to make explicit, descriptive sexual com ments to the child, Dey said. Further, he asked to engage in sexual relations. Dey noted that after Drake as sumed the childs online pres ence, Mizrahi did not respond to attempts to converse. On Aug. 16, 2012, detectives interviewed Mizrahi at the Sher iffs Office. He admitted writing the messages to the 12-year-old, but stated he did not feel there was anything wrong with it as long as he never acted on it. The report on Tamayos predatory Facebook activity came on July 18, 2012, Dey said. This time, it was a mother who reported finding sexual messages on her 12-year-old daughters Facebook page, com ing from an 18-year-old male. She, too, gave Drake permission to assume her childs online identity. Drake first reviewed messages, finding them dating from Sept. 3, 2011. They continued even after Drake took over the online presence, ending on Aug. 3, 2012. Dey described the messages between the child and the young man as normal between Sept. 4 and Oct. 11, 2011. But then, Tamayo allegedly began making comments of a sexual nature. Drake said in his report that Tamayo made repeated attempts to be with the girl, all of them rebuffed by the child. On June 10 and June 11 of that year, he asked the girl for sexual favors. On July 24, 2012, Drake took over the communications. Dey said that on Aug. 1, Tamayo told the girl we can hide n keep it to ourselves, and asked her to sneak out of the house. Drake made online arrange ments as the 12-year-old to meet with Tamayo on Aug. 2, 2012, Dey said. The meet never oc curred, however, as Tamayo did not respond to further messages on that day as he was working. On Aug. 15, 2012, detectives interviewed Tamayo at the Sher iffs Office. He admitted to knowing the girls age and send ing the messages, Dey said. He also said what he did was wrong. last Thursday, which was con c erned primarily with the U.S. 17 four-laning to be done through Zolfo Springs on the 1.1 miles from south of Ninth Street to north of Third Street. About 30 people came to ask questions and eyeball plans for the proposed U.S. 17 project. Their comments will be incorpo rated into the final design of the project and a public design re view will be scheduled, said Steublen. One of the main concerns was whether there would be a turn lane off SR 66 as motorists, especially truckers, have a hard time now making a right turn from SR 66 to the northbound U.S. 17 lanes. People have until the end of April to send any other com ments to antone.sherrard@dot.state.fl.us. More information on the U.S. 17 plan is available at www.FDOTUS17projects.com. or, to save cash, a voter petition c an be submitted. Lamboy explained that any registered voter can sign the petition, whether or not he is a member of your same political party and whether or not he would even consider voting for you. The signature just means the person believes in the elec tion process, and that candidates should be on a ballot that is voted on by the public. The petition gets your name on that ballot. If choosing to pay the fee instead, it is six percent of the County Commissions $31,128 wage or four percent of the School Boards $26,334 salary. Petitions, however, require only 124 signatures of registered voters, and take the place of that fee. That number of signatures is fairly easily attained. Those signatures may come from Republicans, Democrats and Independents or Others. The signed petition must be turned into the Elections Office by May 19 at noon. Currently, there are 5,177 reg istered Democrats in Hardee County, 4,018 Republicans and 1,575 Other. The official one-week qualify ing period for all candidates is Monday, June 16, at noon to Fri day, June 20, at noon. Anyone who has not turned in a voter petition by May 19 can still qualify for candidacy at that time, but will have to pay the cash fee. The Primary Election is Aug. 26. The General Election is Nov. 4.

By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate They succeeded on Monday night. The Hardee girls softball team went to Lemon Bay and came home as District 11 champions in the rescheduled game on Monday in Englewood. With the 9-2 victory and district championship, Hardee earned the right to host the Region 3 quarterfinal game Thursday (tonight) at 7 against District 12 runner-up Lely. Lemon Bay, which became District 11 runner-up, travels to Cape Coral, the District 12 champion. Hardee and Lemon Bay had split their games during the regular season, Hardee winning at Lemon Bay and Lemon Bay returning the favor at Hardee. It came down to a coin toss, which Hardee lost making the Lady Cats second seed. First, Hardee hosted thirdseed Sebring on Apr. 15 in the district semi-finals, winning 125. Hardee was supposed to play the district championship at Lemon Bay last Thursday but inclement weather interfered. The game was postponed to Monday afternoon at 4, when Hardee prevailed to claim the districts top spot. Hardee 12, Sebring 5 With junior Alex Ullrich on the mound, Hardee faced Sebring last Tuesday. Hardee had defeated Sebring 15-0 and 10-1 during the season. The Lady Streaks were undaunted and immediately put three runs on the board. Allison Heffner homered to left field to get Sebring going, Morgan Andrews singled to right field and Chelsea Bassett was safe on an error. When Mattie Coe doubled, two more runners crossed home plate to give the Lady Streaks a quick 3-0 advantage. Hardee just as quickly took the lead. Senida Garcia was safe on an error, and was safe on an error at second base on a steal. Hannah Carlton drew a walk and was eliminated on a Morgan Walters fielders choice. Kendall Gough singled to score Garcia. Makayla Deuberry singled to bring Walters home. An error on a Kim Derringer hit brought Gough in and a Sara Welch sacrifice fly plated Deuberry with the go-ahead run. It was 4-3. Sebring went three up, three down in the top of the second and Hardee continued scoring. Caryssa Johnson flied out and Arissa Camel came in for Garcia, who was injured on the initial play. With two down, Carlton homered to make it 5-3. Walters doubled to right field and Gough put a double in left field to bring Walters in. Deuberry singled to left to score Gough and made the score 7-3. The Lady Streaks left one stranded in the top of the third. Hardee left Johnson stranded. Each team also left one aboard in the fourth frame. In the top of the fifth, Sebring picked up one run when Kiana Antone singled and raced home on an error, making it 7-4. In the home half of the fifth, Hardee added a pair of insura nce scores. With one away, Ullrich singled to left field and Johnson took one to left center. Addison Aubry singled to score both teammates, but was eventually out going to third on an error on a Carlton fielders choice. Morgan was safe on an error, leaving two aboard when the third out occurred. It was 94. When Sebring left one stranded in the top of the sixth, Hardee went back to work, Deuberry was safe on an error and advanced on sacrifices by Deuberry and Welch. Ullrich drew a walk and Johnson singled. An Aubry double to left field cleared the bases. Hardee led 12-4. Sebring picke dup one score in the top of the seventh, and final, inning. Antone doubled to right center and raced home on an Emily Gilbert double before Hardee shut Sebring down and took the 12-5 win. Hardee 9, Lemon Bay 2 When the rescheduled district championship game began in Englewood shortly after 4 p.m. Monday, Hardee immediately put some runs on the board. Carlton walked and advanced on a Welch sacrifice fly. Walters singled to right center to bring Carlton home. Karlee Henderson was safe on an error which allowed Walters to come in. Deuberry singled to deep left, leaving runners on the corners. Lemon Bay countered with one run in the bottom of the first as Kacyn Shirley singled to right, advanced on a Baleigh Clemens bunt out and raced home on a Bridget Ruhl hit. Ruhl was out on a 6-4-3 double play Brooke Kvaterrick hit. It was 2-1. Hardee padded its lead with a pair of runs in the top of the second. Ullrich singled down the left field line. Johnson took another to left field and both came home on a Walters double. It was 4-1. Keeping the Lady Manta Rays at bay, Hardee picked up two more scores in the top of the third. Gough was safe on an error and moved to second on a Deuberry sacrifice. Derringer singled to left center. An error on an Ullrich hit and a singled by Carlton brought the first two runners in and made it 6-1. Each team stranded runners until the home half of the fifth, when Lemon Bay brought one home on a bunt and single. Hardee countered in the top of the sixth with a run by Carlton, who had walked, worked her way to third on grounders by her teammates and came in on a Henderson hit to center field. It was 7-2. Stranding a Lady Manta Ray in the bottom of the sixth, Hardee got its final pair of runs in the top of the seventh, and final, inning. Derringer and Ullrich both singled, racing home on a Carlton double to right center field. When Lemon Bay went down in order in the home half of the seventh, Hardee had a well-earned district championship.

Robarts Family FUNERAL HOME WAUCHULA WAUCHULA In Loving Memory Q: My kids have discovered r oller skating, which is great. However, it's been kind of rough on my old hardwood floors, especially near the front door, where they come in and take off their skates. There are a lot of scuffs, scratches and dings. Any way I can get rid of them? And is there a way to prevent these scratches? Tammy in Baltimore A: The fastest way to reduce those scratched areas by the front door is to make the kids take off their skates outside. And while I'm sure you already have a mat just inside the door, consider buying one that is much wider so that outside dirt and sand will land on the mat and not scuff up the floor's finish. Without an idea of how bad the scratches and scuffs are, I can't say exactly how you should resolve the problem. So I'll tell you how to deal with a few scratches, and how to deal with a bigger problem. You can blend in minor sur face scratches using a stain marker (available at home-im provement and flooring stores) in a matching color. A video by The Rosebud Company (http://rose budfloors.com/hardwood-floorvideos/) shows a couple of ways to blend in the color, particularly by blotting the marker on a cloth and then rubbing the cloth over the scratch to more seamlessly blend it in. For small dents where the wood is compressed downward slightly, you can try a couple of methods. On unvarnished floors, you can try to steam out the dent. (Always test this method first in an inconspicuous area, and don't do it if the finish in the test area turns white or very cloudy.) Take a clean, lint-free cloth and a steam iron. Spritz a bit of water directly onto the dent, place the cloth on top, and with the iron on its maximum setting and the steam turned on, press it over the cloth and move in a small circular pattern for about a minute. Lift up the iron, check under the cloth, then repeat the steps. A second method, particularly if you're worried about ruining the floor finish, is to cover the dent with wood putty and stain to match. Apply the putty one small amount at a time, smoothing it completely into the depression, until it's filled and flush with the surrounding floor. Then use a stain marker in a color matching the wood either apply directly to the putty or blot a cloth with the stain and dab or rub into the putty and surrounding area. Allow the area to dry undis turbed for at least a day. If the scratches and dents are deep and numerous, or if the wood is seriously damaged, warped or splintered, bring in a wood flooring professional to evaluate the problem and pro vide an estimate for repairs. Wood floors can have a lot of im pact on a house's value, so take care of them and get professional help for a complex job. HOME TIP: Avoid using wax-based furniture polishes on wood floors. These can be problematic if and when you refinish floors in the future. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 88 years old and in good health except for a small stroke I had a year ago with no lingering deficiencies. I have had an enlarged prostate for most of my adult life, but a biopsy showed no cancer. I have had problems with urgency. I tried a medication, doxazosin, with poor re sults, if any. My last visit, they recommended nothing more than medication. Is removing the prostate not advisable be cause of my age? What's the reason they don't remove it completely? C.W.S. ANSWER: Symptoms of an enlarged prostate in men without cancer are common, and the con dition is called benign prostatic hypertrophy. BPH can be treated with either medication or sur gery. For most men, medication works well. Saw palmetto is used by many men, but well-done trials have shown it to be no better than placebo. Medications like doxazosin, including tamsulosin (Flomax), often are the first ones tried and usually work pretty well, but finasteride (Proscar) and dutasteride (Avodart) are effective as well. A combination is probably most effective of all. However, even that doesn't work for some men. The most common prostate surgery nowadays is a TURP (transurethral resection of the prostate). This is far less invasive and has fewer risks than the old open method, and generally has good results. However, as with any surgery, there is never a guarantee of success, and I have seen several men get worse after TURP, even though most get bet ter. Age in and of itself does not necessarily preclude surgery. However, a history of stroke does make surgery a bit more risky. I don't recommend surgery lightly, and since you haven't reported giving finasteride or du tasteride a chance, either alone or in combination, I would recom mend a good trial of those before contemplating surgery. The booklet on prostate en largement and prostate cancer deals with these common male problems in detail. Readers can order a copy by writing: Dr. Roach No. 1001W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475.

ROACH: m around his neck and on his eyelids. We've been told to tie a string around them, or a der matologist he saw told him to get a good pair of cuticle scis sors and cut them off, but there's way too many to do that. Is there anything else we might try? R.L. ANSWER: Skin tags are be nign growths that are very common on the neck, armpits, groin or other places where skin rubs. They are harmless, and noth ing needs to be done about them unless they are cosmetically important. The best way to remove them is to have a dermatologist or other expert remove them directly. I don't recommend trying to remove them yourself with scissors, since I have occasion ally seen them bleed enough after removal to require a stitch. The last time I wrote about skin tags, several readers wrote to recommend Tag Away, an over-the counter product. It may be worth a try, although the re views about this product are rather mixed.

Ponger-Kays-GradyFuneral Homes & Cremation Services (863) 773-6400 w ww.PongerKaysGrady.com Peace of Mind Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress. Personal Choice Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Preplanning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned. Lower Costs When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense. 4:24-5:15c 4:24c

Charles Robert Stevens III of the Stevens Land & Cattl e team ropes the head of the steer in the team-doctoring event. The steer must also be heeled then marked with chalk in order to receive a time (and theirs was pretty darn good at 35.27 seconds). Bear Murphy of the T&M Cattle team, with Coke bottle in ha nd, gets prepared to milk the wild cow while teammates Shane Perkins and The Big Guy (Kyle Miller) try to hold her steady. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough milk to dribble out of the bottle, resulting in a no-time for this team in this event. Roxanne Murphy races her way back to the starting line i n the second leg of the stampede race. Dennis Carlton Jr. shows how to ride one of these ranch b roncs. He received a score of 66 for this ride, representing the Markham Cattle team. Loni Damboise of the Carlton Ranch team runs carrying her saddle, pad, slicker and the rest of her gear in the first leg of the stampede race. Brett Johnson of the Carlton Ranch team on his bronc be f ore his ride went sideways, resulting in several broken ribs for this cowboy. Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land & Cattle team c omes out of the bucking chute on this bay horse that has never been ridden, and her winning streak continued against this experienced rider. Rodeo Bits B y Kathy Ann Gregg STATE FAIR RANCH RODEO K ICKS OFF 2014 SEASON! The Florida State Fair ranch rodeo was the opener for the 2014 season, being held on Feb. 12-13. This is a qualifying event for the Florida Cattlemens Association ranch rodeo finals. Hardees own Gary Jones was one of the judges (and didnt get booed too many times!). It seems like everyone was working cows in mid-February, so many of the regular teams couldnt make it, leaving only a total of 11 teams, and causing Wednesday afternoons performance to be ex hibition only. Of our teams, Switch Ranch was in the Wednesday evening per formance, Carlton Ranch was in the Thursday afternoon performance, and Stevens Land & Cattle competed in the Thursday evening performance, along with Donald Bear Murphy and wife Roxanne on the T&M Cattle team and Dennis Carlton Jr. and brother-in-law Pat Thomas on the Markham Cattle team. Roping and branding is the opening event. Charles Robert Stevens III caught the calf by its foot, which in this event is considered an illegal catch, so they received a no-time. Switch completed it in1:03.78 and the Murphy teams time was 1:03.62. And heres where it gets exciting (or heartbreaking, depending on which team you are!): This event was won by Dennis and Pats team with a time of 34.84 seconds. The Carlton Ranch team came in at 34.88 seconds a mere four/one-hundredths of a second cost them a win! The second event was the wild-cow milking. Here they do only one team at a time. The three-man team of Dale Carlton, Trae Adams and Brett Johnson of the Carlton Ranch got the job done in 17.93 seconds, Dennis and Pats team in 20.88 seconds, Bear and his team mates in 25.15 seconds (but there was no milk in the bottle, so they received a no-time), and Stevens Land in 38.38 seconds. So congrats go to the Switch Ranch team of Peck Harris, Brandon Dieter, Robert Fussell, and Jordan Boyd (never found out who was the fourth man on this team) for a great time of 12.43 seconds, and the event win! N ext up was the double muggin. The bovines outsmarted the cowboys in this event, with only three teams getting a time. And one of those three teams was Carlton Ranch, with a time of 50.81 seconds. If Christi Pryor is on the Stevens Land team, all others might as well concede the stampede race! She has won the state finals the past two years, and this was her third consecutive win at the Florida State Fair. She and teammate Billy Adams have this event down to a science (welcomed by teammates Charles Robert Stevens III, Mar shall Godsey and Cody Storey). Team doctoring was the next event. This is where the cowboys have to both head and heel the steer, and doing so in a total of only three loops. Switch Ranch and the Murphys team received a no-time, Carl ton Ranch came in at 1:22.76 (plus a five-second penalty for only heeling one back leg), and Stevens Land at 35.27 seconds with a clean run. But Pat Thomas roping skills helped the Markham Cattle team win this event, with a time of 26.36 seconds (plus the five-sec ond penalty for only heeling one back leg). That left the final event of ranch bronc riding. Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land team drew the bay horse that has never been ridden, and the horse continued her streak against Marshall! Dennis Carlton, Jr. rode for a score of 66, and Brandon Dieter of Switch Ranch for a 69. The event was won by a score of 72, from Shane Perkins filling in for the usual T&M Cattle rider of Adam Turtle. But the Best Ride award would have to go to Hardees own Brett Johnson of the Carlton Ranch team who landed so hard when he hit the ground that he fractured a couple of ribs. Hope youre feeling better, Brett! And this was just another ranch rodeo where the overall firstplace winner did not win a single event (but they did get times in all events, which is what counts). Unfortunately, it was not one of our teams, but congratulations to the Carlton Ranch team of Pat and Dale Carlton, injured Brett Johnson, Trae Adams and Loni Damboise for tying for second-place overall. (Perhaps we will see them at this years state finals!) Keep these Bits, boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Gregg in on your events and achievements, and shell keep you covered.

He is charged with sexual assault with physical force, a second-degree felony. Bond has been set at $50,000. King remained in custody as of early Wednesday morning in lieu of posting bond to gain his release pending trial. According to Maj. Randy Dey, a spokesman for the Sheriffs Office, a 47-year-old woman who is a friend of Kings alleged that he held her against her will and sexually assaulted her on Wednesday of last week. She told authorities was visiting at Kings home when she began to feel ill. She asked King to accompany her to her house, where she needed to retrieve some medication, Dey said. At one point, she alleged, King began making sexual ad vances toward her. Once at her hom e, she described walking in side to avoid him, but he fol lowed. She said she did not give him permission to enter her house. Dey said the woman told Drake she was ill and sat down in a chair in her living room. King allegedly continued his ad vances as the woman told him to stop touching her and to leave her residence. Ins tead, Dey charged, King followed the woman into her kitchen, where he allegedly pushed her onto the floor. She got away from King, the major said, and headed to her bedroom. There, Dey alleged, he attacked her and sexually as saulted her. The woman reported her allegations the next day, adding that King smelled of alcohol at the time. King, in an interview with Drake, did not deny having sex with the woman, but said he believed it to be consensual in nature. He said he felt their friend ship had advanced to the point where the encounter did not seem forced or pressured, Drake relayed in an arrest report. King was taken into custody and transported to the county jail. Man Accused Of Assault King Lemon Bay beat Sebring in the ot her district semi-final on Tuesday evening. Both teams are assured a spot in postseason play when re gional quarterfinals start. If Hardee wins, the Wildcats would host the April 30 game, if not they will have to travel to the District 12 winners field. The regional games are set on April 30, May 6 and May 13 at the field of the higher seed. The Class 5A state finals are May 21-22, hosted by Cypress Lake High, at Jet Blue Park in Fort Myers. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Hardee Wildcat baseball team beat the DeSoto Bulldogs 5-3 in the first round of the Class 5A, Reg. 3, District 11 playoffs on Tuesday night in Wauchula. The win guaranteed the Cats at least two more games. They host the district final and, win or lose, will go on to the first round of regional playoffs, which begin April 30. Friday night at 7 oclock Hardee will host Lemon Bay to decide which team will be crowned the district champion. Cats Host District C hampionship Friday Gas prices are beginning to s tabilize after going on a streak of more than 20 days of in creases. The average price in Florida, Georgia and Tennessee didn't in crease a cent over the weekend. Weekly gains were also much smaller over the past week compared to previous weeks. "During the past week, gas price increases slowed until they finally stopped over the week end," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, The Auto Club Group. "It is too soon to know whether we have seen the peak price for the season, but this is a good sign that relief is on the way for motorists at the pump." Gas prices typically peak in the spring. During the last three years, prices peaked in February 2013, April 2012 and May 2011. Summer gas prices become more volatile, greatly influenced by demand, geopolitical tension a nd natural disasters. Refineries in the Gulf of Mex ico that reduced output during maintenance season are return ing to full operation. However, any unexpected setbacks could cause prices to rise. Meanwhile, tensions between Russia and the Ukraine continue to place up ward pressure on the price of oil. There are concerns that sanc tions imposed by Western countries might impact exports from Russia, which would also cause oil prices to spike. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.67, three cents more than last week. Since last week, Florida's average of $3.76 rose four cents, Georgias average of $3.65 rose seven cents, and Tennessee's average of $3.50 rose two cents. Gas Prices Plateau O ver The Weekend Florida Crop Update Week Ending: April 20, 2014 W et Conditions Slow Field Work Weather Summary: According to Floridas Automated Weather Network (FAWN), the State received between one quarter inch and almost nine inches of rain. Defuniak Springs (Walton County) received the most rain with 8.6 inches. Maximum temperatures ranged from 76 to 90 degrees, with five locations recording the high temperature of 90 degrees. The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 36 degrees in DeFuniak Springs (Walton County) to 64 degrees in Wellington (West Palm Beach County). Field Crop: In the Panhandle most soil was completely saturated, bringing field work to a standstill. Gulf County farmers were able to harvest wheat and oats. Jackson County farmers started planting field corn but were not able to finish due to wet fields. In north Florida, Madison County farmers continued planting field corn and peanuts. In Palm Beach County, sugarcane harvest was nearing its completion and rice was being planted. Fruit and Vegetables: Watermelon planting was finished in Levy County. Flagler and Putnam county farmers started harvesting potatoes. Blueberry and watermelon harvest moved into high gear in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, and Hendry counties. Crops being planted in Miami-Dade County were okra, sweet potatoes, and Asian vegetables. Miami-Dade County farmers were harvesting boniato, eggplant, green beans, yellow squash, peppers, sweet corn, toma toes, and zucchini. Vegetables and fruits coming to market in the southwest were beets, blueberries, cabbage, collards, cucumbers, eggplant, herbs, lettuce, peppers, snap beans, and specialty items. Citrus: All monitored stations in the citrus region received rain fall this past week. The most was in Saint Lucie West (Saint Lucie County) at just over three inches; the least was in Joshua (DeSoto County), at under a quarter of an inch. Daytime temperatures were warm, reaching the upper 80s to lower 90s in all citrus producing counties. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated April 15, 2014, no drought exists within the citrus growing area. Even with rainfall over the last several weeks, due to the heat, greening, and chemical spraying, some defoliation has been ob served in trees in the southern counties. The bloom is over and small pea size fruit is apparent in most areas. Some growers were reporting a good fruit set for next seasons crop. Owners were pushing dead or declining blocks and replanting in several areas across the citrus region. Hedging and topping has been steady and many growers have completed or are finishing up for this time of year. Processing plants were primarily running Valencia oranges with a few running grapefruit. Several packinghouses have finished for the season, some have transitioned to gift fruit packing only. Livestock and Pastures: Pastures remain wet in the Panhandle for another week. Frequent rains have benefited livestock producers with a good grazing season in the south. The cattle condition for the State was primarily good but the pasture condition was mostly fair.

By KATHY ANN GREGG Sp ecial To The Herald-Advocate The seventh annual Best of the Ranches ranch rodeo was held on Sunday, April 6, in Arcadia. This was a Working Ranch Cowboys Association sanctioned event, with the winning team garnering a spot in the national finals to be held in early November at Amarillo, Texas. And Hardee County will have a presence there! There were Hardee County cowboys competing on five of the 10 teams entered, and it was one of these teams that came out on top. The overall winner was the Schroeder Manatee Ranch/Deseret Ranch team, which included Brandon Dieter and Justin Peebles. Dieter was raised in Ona, being the oldest son of Steve and Regina Senn, and Jimmy Dieter of Sarasota. He competed in Florida High School Rodeo for most of his high school years, being sidelined by an accident in 2007. In addition to competing in ranch rodeos, doing farrier work and being a ranch dayworker, Dieters newest career is that of bullfighter. He has spent many years donating his time and skills to the youth rodeos held in Hardee County and the Arcadia Youth Rodeo. He has recently received his Professional Bull Riders card, and has traveled to various venues in the Southeast to work bulls for the PBR. Peebles is a Hardee cowboy by virtue of marriage he is married to the former Kelly Cumbee, and they have a toddler named Wyatt. His wife and son are at every ranch rodeo in the cheering section, and they are usually accompanied by her sister, Lacey, and dad Lamar, Ed wina and Eli. The Peebleses reside in the St. Cloud area, and he is employed by Deseret Ranch. This ranch rodeo had five events: team sorting, wild-cow milking, roping and branding, stray gathering, and the everpopular ranch bronc riding. The SMR/Deseret team won the wild-cow milking event with a time of 37.50 seconds, with Peebles doing the roping chores and Dieter doing the ground work. Dieter then took over the ropi ng duties in the roping and branding event. The stray-gathering event is one used only at the WRCA ranch rodeos. Each team has two teams of two cowboys. Working simultaneously in the arena, they must each head and heel their steer, then mug it and tie three legs together. When one team is done, they can then go assist the other team with the ground work. Since its inception three years ago, this has proven to be the most difficult event, with the majority of the teams receiving a no-time. This year was no different, but SMR/Deseret was one of the three teams to com plete it, in 1:36.90. Dieter was paired with Stevie John of Myakka City, and Peebles worked with Dusty Crosby, a fellow Deseret Ranch employee. Dieter was the designated bronc rider for his team, and tied for second place with an excellent score of 70. The winning score was a 76, by Cole Fulford of t he Stevens Land/-Fulford Cattle team. Other locals competing were Charles Robert Stevens III of the Stevens Land/Fulford Cattle team, Marshall Godsey of the second-place Adams Ranch team, Alton Langford of the A Bar L Cattle team, and Jimmy Fussell and nephew Robert Fussell of the CJ Cattle/KL Bar team. Also involved were Peck Har ris, who carried the American flag in the Grand Entry and worked settling the herd be tween teams, and new Hardee County resident Donny Boyd, who was one of the judges. Each event had a different team winning it, but when all the scores were tallied up, it was the SMR/Deseret team that took top honors and will take a trip to Amarillo come Novem-ber!

8A The Herald-Advocate, April 24, 2014 S S p p r r i i n n g g P P e e a a s s , P P l l e e a a s s e e ! One of the best ways to cele bra te the coming of spring is with a basket full of small, very fresh, sweet green peas. You know that peas are fresh when their pods are firm and green, so avoid any that are yellowing or wilting. Go for medium pods rather than large, thick-skinned ones, which are more mature and contain larger, tougher peas. Break open a pod and check the peas inside. They should be small, bright green and firm; if you taste one, it should be tender and sweet. If all you can find are large, mature peas, opt for frozen peas instead. They're usually picked when they're young and tender and immediately frozen. Mature peas are not as tender and sweet as young ones, and they're less versatile. They need to be cooked longer and more slowly, and their firmer texture works well only in stews and braises. Peas provide essential nutri ents and are an excellent source of vitamins K and B6, and folic acid, all crucial to bone strength and cardiovascular health. You'll probably find three types of fresh peas available at the market right now: English, sugar snap and snow peas. English peas (also called shelling peas, green peas or garden peas) are the most common. Their pods are inedible, so the peas must be shelled before eating. "Petits pois" is the name given to very small English peas. Sugar snap peas have a thicker, edible shell. As the name Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis denotes, this variety is sweet like sugar and makes a distinctive sound when its shell is broken. Sugar snap peas can be eaten both raw and cooked. Snow peas, often seen in Chinese cooking, are flatter, thinner and more translucent than the others. They are eaten in their en tirety, and no shelling is required. Peas don't have much of a shelf life, so don't store them for long periods of time. Store pods in a plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. Use them within a couple of days. Shelling peas is easy. To do it, remove the stem end of the pod, peel the stringy fiber from the seam, pry the pod open and run your thumb along the interior to detach the peas. Once they're shelled, the best way to store peas is to freeze them. First blanch them for a minute or two in boiling, salted water, and then shock them in an ice-water bath until cool to help maintain their bright color. Drain and freeze in zip-top bags. They will keep for five to six months. Peas lend themselves to almost any cooking method and mix well with a variety of flavors, such as cured meats. Bacon, pancetta, prosciutto, smoked ham and chorizo work wonder fully with peas, as their pro nounced saltiness complements the peas' gentle flavor. Fresh mint also is a classic fla vor partner, but feel free to ex periment with other fresh spring herbs such as basil, chervil, chives, dill and tarragon. Peas are a natural with onions, scal lions and other alliums, and they pair well with other spring veg etables like asparagus, new pota toes, carrots and fava beans. They're delicious as a side dish with chicken, lamb or duck, and with any kind of fish, especially cod, salmon and scallops. When they're small and tender, peas are great raw in salads. Try this delicious Sweet Pea and Asparagus Salad, and celebrate spring! SWEET PEA AND ASPARAGUS SALAD 1/4 cup lemon juice 1 teaspoon lemon zest 1/4 cup canola oil, or extra-vir gin olive oil 1 teaspoon sugar or honey 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon ground black pep per 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 heads Boston or Bibb lettuce, torn into bite-size pieces 2 cups very thinly sliced fresh asparagus (about 1 bunch) 2 cups shelled fresh peas (about 3 pounds unshelled) 1 pint grape or cherry tomatoes, halved 2 tablespoons minced fresh chives, or scallion greens Combine lemon juice and zest, oil, sugar or honey, garlic pow der, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper in a large salad bowl. Add lettuce, asparagus, peas, tomatoes and chives or the top of a green onion; toss to coat. Serve immediately. Makes 8 servings.

This paper will be dated 4-2414 and my grandsons birthday is 4-24, so Happy Birthday wishes to T.K. The Easter egg hunt at Fort Green was not as well-attended as usual, but that is probably because so much was going on. The ones in attendance had a good time, but the baby of Kimberly and Dwayne Alexan-der fell on the fireplace and cut his eyelid and was rushed to the hospital. Mike told me Sunday morning that the hospital glued it. Such modern technology. We always have more people in attendance on Easter but this one was more than the past. It was great to see so many old friends and new ones. Our choir did an outstanding job under the direction of Carol Brown. There were solos by Tim Casey, B.J. Haney and Connie Abbott. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to Trish and Ron Wilson and family on the death of their infant grandchild. Many hearts were saddened by this tragedy. Our community was saddened by the final journey of Betty Ruth Walker. She was a devout prayer warrior for our church and anyone else in need of prayer. Betty went home last Thursday early in the a.m. The ones in attendance said she told her husband see you later as she knew where she was going and that someday he would also. She had a beautiful service at Fort Green Baptist and then after the interment, supper at the church. Eileen Brannons husband and daughter were there. I got to know Eileen at the Soil Conservation Office and thus got to know her husband. Eileen made her journey some years ago. Fort Green Church has been privileged to have some great prayer warriors. Three that come to mind are Jonnie Revell, Zula Cooper and Betty Walker. All three are and will be sorely missed. Makayla Chancey has had this stomach virus that is going around. It is bad to be sick during school days but when you have a holiday it is worse! Faye Cha ncey has the stomach bug, and Gloria Dupree is a little better. Sam Rawls was in the hospital overnight but is out and feeling better. John White and Maxine Dawson are under the weather. James Eures was in a wreck last week but was at church Sun day with some broken ribs and a taped-up hand. Billy Port-er has been moved to Hardee Manor and is not doing well. Harriett Hendry is still not well after her recent hospital stay. Pat Albritton has a problem and is meeting with a Tampa doctor for his advice. Gary Oden was at church Easter but is waiting on answers to tests. Betty Waters still needs our prayer. Chris Blum has had a re lapse of his cancer. His mother, Joan, retired early so she could be home with him. There is truly a lot of sickness in our small community and needs your prayers. I went to the fair banquet last week, which was a first for me. I was happy to see Tyler Bragg win second place in weight gain and one of Chip Walkers girls won an award. Congratulations to both of these young people. Plenty of others won but Tyler is a member of our church and Chip used to be. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to the family of Margaret Roberts. She made her final journey Easter. If her family is like me, Easter will be sad in the future. My late husband made his final journey the day after Easter and I always remember what we did on that last Easter. I think it is just human nature. I have a photo of my daughter in a dress that Margaret and Lawrence gave her when she was a baby. I did not see Margaret and Lawrence much but you still consider them friends. Homecoming at Fort Green will be May 4, the first Sunday in May. We have a special guest who will deliver the sermon. Come on out and listen to him and stay for dinner. Please pray for one another and our nation. www.jazzercise.com J azzercise Heartland S St tr ri ik ke e C Co or re e F Fu us si io on nWe have it all and results too! soc4:24c A A F FR RE EE E C Cl la as ss s & & $ $2 20 0 O OF FF F y yo ou ur r r re eg gi is st tr ra at ti io on nL L o o o o k ki in n g g F F o o r r A A G Gr r e ea a t t N Ne e w w W W o o r r k ko o u ut t ? ?Yard Sale!

April 24, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3B This week in history, as re s earched from the archival pages of The Florida Ad-vo cate, the Hardee County Herald and The Herald-Ad-vocate . 75 YEARS AGO The American Society for the Control of Cancer has desig nated the month of April for their drive. The Womens Field Army, organized two years ago, was launched by the American Society to interest men and women in all aspects of cancer and to enlist more aid in their field. On Tuesday afternoon at about four oclock, Mr. and Mrs. A.C. Schenck were severely injured as their car overturned two times as they were traveling north en route to Bowling Green on the Dixie Highway about two miles north of town. Observers state that it appeared as if one of the tires was punctured causing the car to skid in the rain. The 12th annual Flower Show of the Wauchula Garden Club was held last Friday afternoon and evening at the Womans Club building with hundreds of visitors viewing lovely exhibits, and voicing praise for the manner in which those in charge accomplished their task. Thursday, May 11, at 8 p.m., has been set as the date for the annual May Pageant, which will be held at the Wauchula municipal auditorium. 50 YEARS AGO Another major land sale in Hardee County was recorded last week. A Springfield, Ill., couple bought two large tracts of pasture land in the Crewsville section of the county from the Elizabeth W. Davis estate, then sold one of the tracts to Lewis and Gethie Friend of Pahokee. Three automobile accidents totaling approximately $4,000 in property damage were added to Hardees traffic record this past week. No serious injuries were reported. Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Sanders ob served their 60th anniversary re cently. They were married April 6, 1904, at the home of the bride near Wilmore, Ky. To this union were born two sons and two daughters. The Moose Club north of Wauchula on U.S. 17 suffered a fire and a theft early Saturday morning. The fire was confined to the inside southeast corner of the building and damaged an ice machine in addition to the floor and ceiling. The theft was ap proximately $130 in cash and checks. 25 YEARS AGO James Richardson, who spent 21 years in prison for the 1967 poisoning deaths of his seven children, stopped in Hardee County Tuesday night to dine after leaving Arcadia and the DeSoto County Courthouse, where his conviction was over turned earlier that day by Circuit Court Judge Clifton Kelly. Richardson, his wife, daughter a nd his attorneys and their wives ate at the Golden Corral Restaurant on U.S. 17 in Wauchula at about 9:30 p.m. His first meal as a free man in more than two decades consisted of a rib-eye steak, french fries and a salad. I felt like I was in the middle, almost like I was on trial be cause there was money involved and it concerned me, said Mary Ann Cobb, School Board chairman, about the recent meeting of the School Board of Hardee County and the discussion about her trip to Japan. The Japanese Study Tour is sponsored by the Florida Foundation for Excel lence in Education and led by Betty Castor, commissioner of education. Betsy Davis, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Davis of SR 66, has been chosen as the Hardee County Cattlemens Association sweetheart. Elisa Masterson of Wauchula has been named recipient of the R.E. Lee Wilson Citizenship Award for 1988-89 at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. The Wilson Award is presented annually to the most outstanding graduate of the university, based on qualities of character, deter mination, involvement and academic achievement. 10 YEARS AGO Reading scores have improved across the board for Hardee County third graders, ac cording to Florida Compre-hensive Assessment Test results released Monday by the state Department of Education. Though the districts mean score of 288 falls below the statewide 303, it shows progress over 2003s 284. What a weekend! There werent enough superlatives to describe the accomplishments of a handful of Hardee High School students who brought home a state championship trophy, perhaps the first in Hardee history. Six of the smartest kids in the state of Florida attend Hardee High School, and they now have the trophy to prove it, said Hardee Aca-demic Team coach Peggy Saddler. Winners of The Herald-Advo cates annual Easter Coloring Contest collected their prizes and applause on Monday. Top artists in age divisions 3-4 and 5-6 are Sarah Nicholson, Keegan Zimmerman, Destiny Vickers and Jamee Keller. Taking acclaim in the 7-8 division are Katie Smith, Kaylee Mancillas and Brea Farrer. Wildcat senior center-fielder Brent Gilliard made his choice official on Monday morning. Gilliard, often called the 2004 Wildcat emotional leader, ac cepted a scholarship to the Lake Wales-based school which has already been the home of an other pair of Wildcats. Seth Lambert, a Wildcat and Royals pitcher, graduated from Warner in 2000 and Daniel Barnett, catcher for both Hardee and Warner, graduated in 2002.

4B The Herald-Advocate, April 24, 2014 By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate I was so impressed by our kids efforts today. Coach Rob Beatty was proud of the effort the Hardee track boys and girls teams made in the Class 2A, Region 3 outing last Wednesday. Hardee runners ran quite a few personal record bests and several athletes earned place awards, but unfortunately we didnt have anyone advance, said Beatty. The competition was keen, with dozens of participants from Dunedin, Fort Myers Dunbar, Anclote, Academy of Holy Names, Lemon Bay, Clewiston, Lakewood, Lake Wales, Frost proof, Gibbs, Lake Placid, Immokalee, Booker, McKeel Academy, DeSoto, Gateway Charter, Avon Park, Tampa Catholic, Southeast, Bishop Verot, LaBelle and the host Berkeley Prep challenging Hardee. Girls The District 11 champion girls team ran into a bunch of better athletes at the regional level. Senior Crystal Huerta tied her person best of 7-00.00 and placed sixth in the pole vault. Soph Brook Faulk tied for eighth place with Kyra Johnson of Gibbs High, each at 4-08.00. Junior Cristal Avila did her best and placed eighth in the 1,600 or mile run in 6:00.86. In the 3,200, or two-mile, she placed ninth in 13:51.29. Junior Allison Smith placed 10th in the discus with a toss of 86-03-00. In the 4x800 relay, the girls knocked almost 15 seconds off their previous best to place e ighth. They were in the slower heat and won it, but lost place on the time, finishing in 11:07.34 for eighth place. Maria Munoz led off and ran a terrific time to get the lead. Ashley Ayala and Crystal Avila both ran under 2.50 for their best of the season. The girls also placed seventh in the prelims and 14th in the 4x400. Boys In the pole vault, junior Adam Ramirez, who was district champ, placed sixth over with a vault of 11-00.00. Behind him senior Kevin Borjas and junior Leonel Rodriguez placed sev enth and eighth respectively. Marc Salazar placed 15th. Senior Tristen Lanier was a personal best to place eighth in the 800-meter run in 2:05.98. He also placed 12th in the triple jump with a leap of 39-00-75. Junior Devante Greer placed 11th in the high jump with a leap of 5:06.00. Junior Tyler Smith was 12th in the 1,600-meter run in a time of 4:50.23. In the 3,200, it was freshman Gustavo Vilvalva in 15 place at 12:22.12. Junior Robert Torres placed 14th in the discus with a throw of 103-09.00. Boys relays worked hard. In the 4x800, the boys had to try to place from the lower head, which they dominated. Then, they beat Tampa Jesuit and Bishop Verot teams to move up to sixth placed in a season best time of 8:39.54. The boys also placed eighth in the 4x100 and 13th in the 4x400 relays. Track Ends At Regionals T Tr ra an nc ce e / / F Fo or rm me er rs s, I In nc c.

START EARL Y Traumatic. Difficult. Painful. Those are words that can apply to downsizing when the time comes for a senior to move to a smaller living space. At the same time, it can be ex hilarating. There are numerous websites about senior downsizing, but they all seem to agree on one thing: Get started early. Begin ning months in advance to make the move a gradual process will keep stress to a minimum. Here are a few hints to help: Write it down: If you plan to give certain treasures to others, make notes about who gets what, or give them the items now. If you're going to hire others to help with the eventual packing and moving, make your intentions clear, especially if your things are going in a number of directions. Label every t hing so there is no confusion about whether things get packed or if they're going to be picked up. Declutter: If you had children who moved out without taking all their gear, it all needs to go, either to the child, a charity or the trash. Your own belongings needed to be sorted into cate gories: definitely keep (heir looms, expensive jewelry), donations (items in good condition such as clothing and furniture), give to relatives (keepsakes and heirlooms) and throw away (things with no real value that you don't use). Label your piles and boxes so there are no mistakes with valuable items being thrown away by accident. When you absolutely can't de cide: Put those belongings in one special box and hold on to them. You can decide later, once the hubbub of the move is over. H ere are a few websites with helpful information on downsiz ing: The National Association of Senior Move Managers at https://www.nasmm.org/index.c fm Caring.com has a number of tips for clearing out. Or Google "senior downsiz ing." Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

10B The Herald-Advocate, April 24, 2014 D EAR PAW'S CORNER: Kudos on reminding people that they must be actively involved with their dogs if they expect to have good training results. As someone who is "owned" by an independent Siberian Husky, I can attest that nothing in life is free (NILIF)! I have a great system your readers may like. It's easy and it works. I have two senior dogs now, a German Shepherd, "Ralph," who was a private rescue, and "Damian," the Siberian who's been here all his life. I make both of them sit be fore they get their meal, and the dish is on the floor. They have to lie down in the morn ing before they get a "snack" piece of plain toast. My husband and I also make them sit before putting their leashes on to take them for a walk. This has worked great over the years and has been a winwin situation for our whole family. We also have used the crate training method for years. I have a large crate in the kitchen that "Ralph" knows is his den. He sleeps and naps in there, and I trained him to go into it when visitors come to the house or when I'm taking out the trash. It's turned so that he can see out of it and get a view of all the activity in our home. Anita C., Rochester, N.Y. DEAR ANITA: Thank you for passing this along! Working in basic obedience training as part of everyday life is a great way to reinforce that training and encourage positive behavior. While not everyone agrees with crate training, it can be very ef fective when done correctly. The Humane Society of the United States has crate training tips at www.humanesociety.org/ani mals/dogs/tips/crate_training.ht ml. Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

As top seed, Hardee hosts the fourth seed, while second-seed Lemon Bay hosted third-seed Sebring in Englewood. The Tuesday winners clash on Friday at 7 p.m. If Hardee wins, it will host either Lemon Bay or Sebring for the district championship. Win or lose in the championship round, Hardee would enter the regional quarterfinal game on May 1 as either champion or runner-up. If champion, Hardee would host the first round of the regional playoffs. Hardee finished its regular season on Thursday with pregame Senior night activities, honoring Armondo Alamia, Gar rett Albritton, Jake Bolin, David Chevy Dolcater, Dus-tin Goodwyn, Tyler Hewett, Kris Johnson, Wyatt Maddox, Luke Palmer, Kramer Royal and Luke Winter and their families. Even with the large group of seniors, Hardee has a lot of underclassmen to fill in the gaps. Juniors Tanor Durden and Devin Pearson, sophs Seth McGee, Cody Spencer and Adam Salas (just up from the JV), and frosh Hayden Lindsey round out the 2014 squad. Avon Park 10, Hardee 0 H ardee began last week on a low note, losing at home Tuesday to visiting Avon Park 10-0 as Albritton and Durden were unable to silence the Red Devil bats. The Red Devils left a pair of batters stranded in the first in ning and Hardee left Cody Spencer on the basepaths. In inning two, Kyle Kelley was hit by a pitch and Alex Gomez singled. Both scored with help from teammates. Hardee batters went down in order before Red Devil hurler Daniel Simmons. Avon Park picked up another run in the third, three in the fourth and a final four in the fourth inning. Meanwhle, Hardee batters were unable to mount a rally, with a double play eliminating their chances in the third inning. Hardee 5, Fort Meade 3 The Wildcats made the short trip up U.S. 17 to Fort Meade pay off with a Wednesday win. A double play stopped Hardee in the top of the first and Spencer led Miner batters into consecutive ground-outs. Another double play stalled Hardee in the second inning and the Miners went down in order. In the third, Hardee left Pearson and Johnson on base, while Fort Meade stranded Devon Danforth and Trey Porter. A hit and fielders choice left Hewett stranded in the fourth in ning, while Fort Meade picked up t he first run of the game. D. J. King hit one up the middle and scored on an error. Tobias Culpepper tried to come home on the same play but was out at the plate. The fifth and sixth innings saw more of the same, with both teams leaving batters on base. In the top of the seventh, Hardee bats broke loose. After Dolcater walked, Bolin singled to right field. Johnson hit a twoRBI shot and Royal was safe on an error. Spencer got aboard on another error. Hayden Lindsey kept it going with a single to left field. He was retired on a Palmer fielders choice. Winter was safe on an error and it was back to Dolcater, who was hit by a pitch and kept pushing runners home. When the dust settled, Hardee was up 5-1. Fort Meade attempted to rally in the home half of the seventh, and final, inning. Malik Brown and King were able to get home before Spencer shut down the Miners and preserved the 5-3 win. Hardee 4, Mulberry 0 Senior Night activities were completed early as the Wildcats and Panthers faced threatening skies all evening. The rains didnt come until the game had ended. Johnson was on the mound and struck out the first two Mul berry batters and center fielder Dustin Coldald. Johnson opened with a single but was out on a Roya l fielders choice. He stole second but was left there. It was three up, three down, with a grounder, fly ball and strikeout in the top of the sec ond. Hardee got its first run. Dolcater singled to left, stole second and went to third on a Bolin bunt sacrifice. A Winter hit got Dolcater home. Winter was left at third when the last out occurred. Mulberry left Orlando Rodriguez on base in the top of the third and Hardee added a pair of scores. Johnson singled, stole second third on an error and scored on a Dolcater hit. Royal drew a walk, stole second and scored on a Bolin hit. A double play stopped Hardee scoring. It was 3-0. Coldald was left on base again in the fourth inning and Hardee batters went down in order. With another three up, three down for Mulberry in the fifth, Hardee picked up its final tally. Royal singled to left field, advanced when Spencer was hit by a pitch and went to third on the double play which took out Spencer and hurried home before the final out. There was no further scoring. Hardee left Bolin and Maddox aboard in the home half of the sixth after Bolin walked and Maddox doubled. When Mulberry left Justin Crocker stranded in the top of the sev enth, Hardee had its 14th win of the season. Cats End On Winning Note HEARTLAND PHARMACY (863) 767-8920(Road North of Aarons Rental.

April 24, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B My cousin, the one we call Chuck for chuck roast, is well know n for his savage appetite and cave man table manners. Yes, Mack, just like you said, without a doubt you are definitely a team player. But what concerns us is just which team are you a team player for? Should we fail to attend to our driving, then without a doubt in time our driving will attend to us. So many of my former classmates say that I was dumb in school, but they know full well that is not true, because my teachers all said that I was a promotional student, all 40 of them. The other night while dining out at a local seafood restaurant with a most enchanting seaside setting, Sugar Possum ordered her usual order of crab legs shipped directly from Madrid. I also ordered my usual order, a full platter of oysters from Cape Cod. While waiting for our order to be served, Sugar Possum asked, Why do you look so worried, Truman? I said, Didnt you see the waitress. She looks as old as we are. Sugar Possum says, O.K., the waitress is as old as we are. So what? Then I said, As old as she is, she might not make it back with my great big jumbo platter of oysters. Thats what! Sometimes when you are trying to explain something to somebody, then some 30 minutes later they have still got that blank look across their face. It dont mean they are not asleep just because you cannot hear them snoring. My little Sugar Possum was pretty mad at me because she came home at noon, and I was still in bed. She said through clinched teeth I cannot do like some people do; I cannot be piled up in bed at noon and do nothing. I said, Me neither. Thats why I sleep. I just wonder again, have you be chance ever heard somebody shout BOO in a funeral home? By chance, have you ever heard of a dog or cat being struck by lightning? I am so aggravated with those who say that my late father was not a responsible driver, just because he would take a little snort out of the old jug on occasion. But he was a responsible driver. He was responsible for every wreck he was ever in. If space is indeed our last frontier, then I guess that makes me a squatter. I have always thought that martial arts was an artistic painting of a live subject by some off duty-marshall. All I can say for those who think they know everything is that life is just too simple for them, so it would seem. Oftentimes we are led by ignorance and punished by reality. To be honest Mary Lou was not really much of a cook, but she shore would put the pot over the flames and hope for the best. However, it was usually the worst. Jokes & Philosophies W ith A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas HELICOPTER OR NO HELICOPTER? It was a clear, cool, crisp morning the smell of orange blossoms in the air and people moving about making preparations for the Saturday they would spend with their families and friends. None of them imagined that tragedy may be around the next t urn. They were enjoying life and the blessings of it. One family, out at a local park miles from town enjoying a picnic lunch, was startled when they heard the sound of a truck coming through the brush. They tried to move out of the way. Mom and Dad just barely made it but were injured just the same. Brother and Sister were blessed that they were able to lie flat, and by a sheer miracle the truck did not touch them. Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, the crew had just finished the lunch that had been put back into the refrigerator four times because of the number of emergency calls they were getting. Not a problem they would rather be busy, it makes the 24-hour shift go by even better. At the park, a group of motorcyclists came by and helped the stranded family. The truck that caused this whole thing took off. Two of the motorcycles followed while the others called 9-1-1 and started the wheels in motion, relaying the information of the truck and the injuries of the mom and dad, which did not appear serious. The Police Department and Sheriffs Office were in the process of locating the truck and responding to the park. Fire-Rescue was paged and responded another call in an already busy day. The fire engine usually responds with the ambulance, but they were already busy on a brush fire. The ambulance arrives with two personnel, and they begin assessing the mom and dad. They quickly understand that what appears to be minor is actually two individuals that have serious unseen internal injuries and abnormal vital signs. The paramedic wisely calls for a helicopter to fly the mom out to a trauma center, as her injuries, according to Fire-Rescue traumaalert protocol and procedures, meet that criteria. However, the dad has injuries that are borderline for a trauma-alert helicopter fly-out. The following is quickly considered by the paramedic: to fly the dad or not to fly the dad? I already have one trauma-alert patient, the dad is borderline, the helicopter can usually only take one patient. The cost of the helicopter may be more than this family can handle. These are what he thinks about. The paramedic makes the call for a second helicopter, and also requests the closest fire engine to assist with the second patient, as they have a paramedic on the fire engine and can provide patient care and set up a clear area for the helicopters to land. This story is fictitious. However, it is not uncommon. It is a scenario that we at HCFR are often confronted with. No matter the type of call we respond to, we will always have the best interest of our community as the focal point of our decisions, and we will always do our best to ensure you receive the best possible care. P.S. Mom and Dad are doing fine. The guy in the truck? Well, the PD and SO caught him and threw him in the slammer. Cant find the key to the cell, though. The Fireside B y James Stillwagon Hardee County Fire-Rescue Chief Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 Another week has flown by s o quickly that, for me, it seems like I am in a time warp. My wish for you is that last week was more relaxed for you and yours, especially since we had a holiday weekend. Our love and prayers go to the family of Robert and Emily Wilson Lourcey on the birth and loss of their daughter, Margaret Elyse, who came into and left this world to be with the Lord on Friday, April 18. Even though we are definitely mission-minded, sometimes it seems like we are growing our church from within at New Hope Baptist, as almost monthly we have a newborn coming into our midst. Congratulations to Ryan and Amanda Abbott on the birth Friday of their son, Levi Daniel. Trees and flowers are blooming all around our Riverview area. Lawnmowers, edgers and blowers can be heard at work each day throughout the neigh borhood. While some opt for commercial workers to get it done, others prefer doing it all themselves. Next-door neighbors Zach and Priscilla Bowes and children Melina and Levi can be seen either tending their many new plants or sometimes just admiring them. I am able to enjoy the fruit of their labors, as well as their friendship, as some evenings we are able to chat over the fence. Ray Gill had foot surgery several weeks ago, and has been slowly recovering, enough so t hat he has been able to attend worship services occasionally. Heres to an even faster recov ery, Ray! Several are celebrating the aging process by adding one more year to their number. Happy birthday wishes go to Shannyn Cullins Robertson, Roy Shaw, Larry Taylor, Ross McClenithan, Gene Justiss, Brian Knight and Anthony Luna. With April coming to a close, can May be far behind? April showers may bring May flow ers, so heres wishing for just a bit more rain to knock down the dust, so the beautiful greens of our lawns and the aromas of the flowers can be enjoyed by those who dont suffer the agony of spring allergies. The whole of Hardee County has many who are residents at either Resthaven or Hardee Manor. Most of them would welcome a visit from those close to them or those who just care enough to stop by for a visit. I know and perhaps you do, too, many of our military who hale from Hardee County. Please remember them in your prayers. I still need input from you, my readers, for this column to be what it should be Wauchula News!

In the Apr. 8 sectional meet in Avon Park, Brown won again with a mere 635 total, 340 in the bench and 295 in the clean and jerk. Competition will be keen at the state meet. The top seeded heavyweight is Dennis Williams of South Dayton Warner Christian High. The 267pounder has a 790 total. Zach Sprenkle of Madison County High comes in at 241 pounds with a 720 total. In contrast, Brown comes into the state meet at 249 pounds, w ith a listed 635 total.

But they pricked each other with their quills, and they had to move apart. Soon they were freezing again, and they had to lie side by side to survive. How like church members. But lets avoid the needling because of the needing. Lets have more love and less shove, more action and less faction, more aligning and less maligning, more benefitting and less belittling.

It is a Monkey and Co conut bank. When a coin is placed in the monkey's paw and a lever pressed, the co conut opens and the coin drops into it as the monkey's eyes move and its mouth opens. It is in fairly good condition considering the age. I have been offered $500 for it. Drew, Appleton, Wisc. A: Your bank was patented on March 2, 1886, by James H. Bowen of Philadelphia. It was manufactured by J. & E. Stevens and Company of Cromwell, Conn. The bank was available on either a brown or red base. I found the Monkey and Coconut bank referenced in "The Official Guide to Mechanical Banks" by Dan Morphy and published by House of Collectibles. Morphy claims this bank is worth somewhere in the $1,000 to $12,000 range based, of course, on condi tion. Q: My dad and granddad were barbers in upstate New York. They both collected re lated items such as razors, shaving mugs, a shoeshine stand and even three barber poles. Are these worth keep ing? Kenneth, Las Vegas, N.M. A: Barber shop collectibles are quite popular. Typical prices include a Victorian-era mug rack, $750; an electrified barber pole from the 1950s, $300; a Koken barber chair, circa 1940, $850; and a razor strop, $35. Values are based on condition and rarity. Christian Jones might be a good contact for you, since he collects and appraises barber-related items. He also is the author of an excel lent guide, "Barber Shop History & Antiques," available at amazon.com. Contact him at 1959 Route 3, Hamilton, NJ 08690; barbershop101@gmail.com; and TBSbarbershops.com. Q: While stationed in Ger many during the 1960s, I col lected several dozen Hummel figurines. Can you recommend a good guide so I can deter mine the values of ones I have? Steve, Salem, Ore. A: Although there are several excellent guides, my personal pick is "M.I. Hummel: Figurines, Plates, Miniatures & More" by Robert L. Miller and published by Portfolio Books. This guide is the most accurate and documents thousands of Hummel items. Especially helpful is a chart of the various Hummel marks, making it fairly easy to date years of pro duction. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

It was a re ally suspenseful indie film, with a lot of new-to-me actors. However, the actor who played the detective looked really fa miliar. Can you tell me who he is and what I might have seen him in? Jessica F. in Georgia A: The actor you are thinking of is Jon Lindstrom, and if you're a soap-opera fan, you'll recognize him from "As the World Turns" and "General Hospital." He also has guest-starred in nu merous series, such as "Blue Bloods," "Drop Dead Diva," "NCIS" and "Everwood," and the feature film "Must Love Dogs." "How We Got Away With It" due out May 13 on DVD is Jon's first feature film, which he directed, co-wrote, coproduced and also co-stars in. I asked Jon about the experi ence of directing his first featurelength film, and he told me what a meaningful shoot it was: "The whole shoot was really special for me, just being as it was the first time I was directing a fea ture-length film. There was one night, though ... there's an entire sequence, it comes probably about two-thirds of the way through the film, where there are some characters doing some thing at a pier at night. There's essentially no dialogue in it, and the sequence runs for about 10 minutes. "This was the moment where we all knew that the movie was going to work. That's one of the rare things that comes along, when so many things have to go right to make a decent movie. That was the moment I knew this might actually work after all." Q: I love the character of Tessa on "Supernatural" (which also happens to be my favorite show). Will she ever return to the series? Desi L., via email A: Lindsey McKeon, who plays everyone's favorite reaper on the popular CW sci-fi series, will return to the show May 13. Lindsey told me she's thrilled to be working with that group again. When I spoke with her recently, she still hadn't received a script, but she knew she definitely wanted to reprise her role. "I don't know what I'll be doing or what will be happening, but I am excited. I love the show, and the boys are great. This is one of my favorite characters to play." Q: I was wondering if you could tell me when "Hell On Wheels" is coming back on? Terry V., via email A: AMC's hit Western series will return this summer with a supersize fourth season of 13 episodes, instead of the normal 10. (I don't have an exact date just yet, but follow me on Twitter for updates: @Celebrity_Extra.) If you need to catch up before then, the previous three seasons are all available on DVD.

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of Jesus.Luke 24:1-3 (NIV)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He has risen as He said. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead, and He is going ahead of you to Galilee.Matthew 28:5-6a,7a (RSV)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y That same day two of Jesus followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. Jesus Himself suddenly came and began walking with them. Then Jesus took them through the writ ings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things con cerning Himself.Luke 24:13,27 (NLT)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y That evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors in fear of the Jewish leaders when suddenly Jesus was standing there among them. And how wonderful was their joy as they saw their Lord. He said to them, As the Father has sent Me, so I am sending you. Receive the Holy Spirit.John 20:19,20b-21 (TLB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y Thomas, called Didymus, who was one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. A week later, the followers were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were locked but Jesus came in and stood right in the middle of them. He said to Thomas, Put your finger here and look at My hands. Stop being an unbeliever. Jesus said, You believe because you see Me. Those who are truly blessed believe without seeing Me.John 20:24,26,27b,29 (NCV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Jesus came again and told the disciples. All power in Heaven and earth has been given to Me. You, then, are to go and make disciples of all the nations and baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you, and re-member, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.Matthew 28:18-20 (PME)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y So after talking with them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven, and He took His seat at the right hand of God, but they went out to make their proclamations every where, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed their words by the miracles that followed.Mark 16:19-20 (NEB) All verses are excerpted from The Holy Bible: (KJV) King James Version; (ME) The Message; (NCV) New Century Version; (NEB) New Eng lish Bible; (NIV) New International Version; (NLT) New Living Translation (RSV) Revised Standard Version; (PME) Phillips Modern English; and (TLB) The Living Bible.

Work on the SR 64 project just east of the U.S. 17 intersec tion came to a stop last weekwhen the construction companyEmpower Inc. shut its doors anddefaulted. That’s the report Monday from Robin Stublen, media spe cialist with the District 1 stateDepartment of Transportationoffice in Bartow. Stublen confirmed that Empower went out of business andleft the half-million dollar proj ect still unfinished. The project has been turned over to the bonding company,which will be responsible forcompleting an audit on theamount of work done, whatwork remains and obtaining acontractor to complete the proj ect. The original plan, well over a year ago, was to change the .02-mile portion of the road to re move the dip which had floodedwhenever there was a hard rain.The main plan was to raise theroad four-to-five feet to elimi nate the flooding issue.The full project was to installdrainage ditches on the northside of the roadway and changethe elevation of the road fromPear Street east to Cracker Trail,building a gravity wall to sup port the new roadway while in stalling new curbs, gutters andguardrails and repaving the road. Initial plans were for the work to be completed by late 2013.That was later changed to thespring of 2014. Motorists using SR 64 East have faced detour lanes as workwas under way on each side ofthe roadway. First, the detourwas on the north side until thesouth portion of the road was el evated. It presently has barri cades right along the originalcenter dividing line and two nar row lanes on the south side ofthe road, while work began onthe north side. Steublen said several resi dents asked about the SR 64issue during the Open House atthe Zolfo Springs Town HallSee SR 642A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate Are you still thinking of run ning for office, but remain waryof the demands? Then remember, the non-par tisan Hardee County SchoolBoard is an excellent startingpoint for those interested inserving this community. Itstwice-monthly meetings typi cally last less than 20 minutes,and generally address just one or two items on the Action Agenda.The public rarely at-tends. No other governmental entity in the county, which includesthree municipalities and theircommissions, meets for lesstime and considers fewer issues. Three seats are currently up for grabs on the School Board,and its members are paid$26,334 a year. So far, only one of the three slots has drawn anyone inter ested in running against the in cumbent. And if you are contemplating more of a challenge, then theHardee County Commissionmay be the place to serve yourcounty. Its meetings average roughly 2-1/2 hours about three times amonth, and examine a multitudeof items. A vocal public often isin attendance. Two seats are open, and county commissioners are paid$31,128 annually. Those elected to either board serve four-year terms. Up for election in 2014 are School Board districts 1, 4 and5. Those positions now belongto Paul Samuels, Jan Platt andThomas Trevino, respectively.On the ballot for the CountyCommission are districts 2 and4. Sue Birge and Grady Johnson,respectively, are the incumbents. Deputy Supervisor Lisa Lam boy at the Elections Office saidthis week that, for the SchoolBoard, Samuels and Platt havecompleted the petition process, while Trevino has just begun it. Platt has two challengers to date, Eugenia Larsen and GarryMcWhorter. No one has shown an interest in either Samuels’ or Trevino’sseats. For the County Commission, Lamboy said Birge and oppo nent Judy Wilson have com pleted the petition process, but opponent Steven Anthony Plum mer II has not. For District 4, Johnson has now returned his petition, shenoted, as has challenger RussellMelendy. To get one’s name on the bal lot for any of these open fiveseats, a filing fee must be paidSee OFFICE 2A

RegistrationOpens AtCollegeFACEBOOKContinued From 1ASR 64Continued From 1AOFFICEContinued From 1A Tamayo also was handed the sexual offender designation. Allegations against Mizrahi were the first to be made, onJuly 10 of 2012, Maj. RandyDey of the Hardee County Sher iff’s Office noted. A father reported finding sex ual messages on his 12-year-olddaughter’s Facebook page, writ ten by an older male. The fathergave authorities permission toassume his child’s online iden tity and make posts, the majoradded. Det. David Drake began the investigation by reviewing mes sages on the child’s page, find ing conversations with Mizrahifrom Nov. 6, 2011, up to July 10,2012. “There never was a pointin which the child solicited orenticed Mizrahi,” Drake allegedin his report on the case. The detective noted that, early on, there were several mentionsof the girl’s age, with Mizrahirepeating that she was “only12.” On Dec. 21, 2011, he al legedly commented on a photoof the girl, “Ummm. I don’twant to say anything. I’ll feellike a pedo. Lol.” He also tells the girl that he is 20 years old. Basic conversations continued off and on, Drake said, but thetopic of the girl’s “curves” cameup on April 27, 2012. By July 6 of that year, Mizrahi allegedly was asking the girl tomeet him to be alone with him.“Just ask to go on a walk,” he al legedly prompted the girl,adding, “We’ll have fun.” Mizrahi proceeded to make explicit, descriptive sexual com ments to the child, Dey said.Further, he asked to engage insexual relations. Dey noted that after Drake as sumed the child’s online pres ence, Mizrahi did not respond toattempts to converse. On Aug. 16, 2012, detectives interviewed Mizrahi at the Sher iff’s Office. He admitted writing the messages to the 12-year-old,but stated “he did not feel therewas anything wrong with it aslong as he never acted on it.” The report on Tamayo’s predatory Facebook activitycame on July 18, 2012, Deysaid. This time, it was a mother who reported finding sexualmessages on her 12-year-olddaughter’s Facebook page, com ing from an 18-year-old male.She, too, gave Drake permissionto assume her child’s onlineidentity. Drake first reviewed mes sages, finding them dating fromSept. 3, 2011. They continuedeven after Drake took over theonline presence, ending on Aug.3, 2012. Dey described the messages between the child and the youngman as “normal” between Sept.4 and Oct. 11, 2011. But then,Tamayo allegedly began makingcomments of a sexual nature. Drake said in his report that Tamayo made repeated at-tempts to be with the girl, all ofthem rebuffed by the child. On June 10 and June 11 of that year, he asked the girl forsexual favors. On July 24, 2012, Drake took over the communications. Dey said that on Aug. 1, Tamayo told the girl “we canhide n keep it to ourselves,” andasked her to sneak out of thehouse. Drake made online arrange ments as the 12-year-old to meetwith Tamayo on Aug. 2, 2012,Dey said. The meet never oc curred, however, as Tamayo didnot respond to further messageson that day as he was working. On Aug. 15, 2012, detectives interviewed Tamayo at the Sher iff’s Office. He admitted toknowing the girl’s age and send ing the messages, Dey said. Healso said what he did “waswrong.” last Thursday, which was con cerned primarily with the U.S.17 four-laning to be donethrough Zolfo Springs on the 1.1miles from south of Ninth Streetto north of Third Street. About 30 people came to ask questions and eyeball plans forthe proposed U.S. 17 project.Their comments will be incorpo rated into the final design of theproject and a public design re view will be scheduled, saidSteublen. One of the main concerns was whether there would be a turnlane off SR 66 as motorists, es pecially truckers, have a hardtime now making a right turnfrom SR 66 to the northboundU.S. 17 lanes. People have until the end of April to send any other com ments to antone.sherrard@dot.-state.fl.us. More information onthe U.S. 17 plan is available atwww.FDOTUS17projects.com. or, to save cash, a voter petitioncan be submitted. Lamboy explained that any registered voter can sign the pe tition, whether or not he is amember of your same politicalparty and whether or not hewould even consider voting foryou. The signature just meansthe person believes in the elec tion process, and that candidatesshould be on a ballot that isvoted on by the public. The petition gets your name on that ballot. If choosing to pay the fee in stead, it is six percent of theCounty Commission’s $31,128wage or four percent of theSchool Board’s $26,334 salary. Petitions, however, require only 124 signatures of registeredvoters, and take the place of thatfee. That number of signatures isfairly easily attained. Those signatures may come from Republicans, Democratsand Independents or Others. Thesigned petition must be turnedinto the Elections Office by May19 at noon. Currently, there are 5,177 reg istered Democrats in HardeeCounty, 4,018 Republicans and1,575 Other. The official one-week qualify ing period for all candidates isMonday, June 16, at noon to Fri day, June 20, at noon. Anyone who has not turned in a voter petition by May 19 canstill qualify for candidacy at thattime, but will have to pay thecash fee. The Primary Election is Aug. 26. The General Election is Nov.4.

Robarts Family FUNERAL HOME WAUCHULAWAUCHULA In Loving Memory Q: My kids have discovered roller skating, which is great.However, it's been kind ofrough on my old hardwoodfloors, especially near the frontdoor, where they come in andtake off their skates. There area lot of scuffs, scratches anddings. Any way I can get rid ofthem? And is there a way toprevent these scratches? —Tammy in Baltimore A: The fastest way to reduce those scratched areas by the frontdoor is to make the kids take offtheir skates outside. And whileI'm sure you already have a matjust inside the door, considerbuying one that is much wider sothat outside dirt and sand willland on the mat and not scuff upthe floor's finish. Without an idea of how bad the scratches and scuffs are, Ican't say exactly how you shouldresolve the problem. So I'll tellyou how to deal with a fewscratches, and how to deal with abigger problem. You can blend in minor sur face scratches using a stainmarker (available at home-im provement and flooring stores) ina matching color. A video by TheRosebud Company (http://rose budfloors.com/hardwood-floor-videos/) shows a couple of waysto blend in the color, particularlyby blotting the marker on a clothand then rubbing the cloth overthe scratch to more seamlesslyblend it in. For small dents where the wood is compressed downwardslightly, you can try a couple ofmethods. On unvarnished floors,you can try to steam out the dent.(Always test this method first inan inconspicuous area, and don'tdo it if the finish in the test areaturns white or very cloudy.) Takea clean, lint-free cloth and asteam iron. Spritz a bit of waterdirectly onto the dent, place thecloth on top, and with the iron onits maximum setting and thesteam turned on, press it over thecloth and move in a small circu lar pattern for about a minute.Lift up the iron, check under thecloth, then repeat the steps. A second method, particularly if you're worried about ruiningthe floor finish, is to cover thedent with wood putty and stain tomatch. Apply the putty one smallamount at a time, smoothing itcompletely into the depression,until it's filled and flush with thesurrounding floor. Then use astain marker in a color matchingthe wood — either apply directlyto the putty or blot a cloth withthe stain and dab or rub into theputty and surrounding area.Allow the area to dry undis turbed for at least a day. If the scratches and dents are deep and numerous, or if thewood is seriously damaged,warped or splintered, bring in awood flooring professional toevaluate the problem and pro vide an estimate for repairs.Wood floors can have a lot of im pact on a house's value, so takecare of them and get professionalhelp for a complex job. HOME TIP: Avoid using wax-based furniture polishes onwood floors. These can be prob lematic if and when you refinishfloors in the future. Send your questions or home tipsto ask@thisisahammer.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 88 years old and in good healthexcept for a small stroke I hada year ago with no lingeringdeficiencies. I have had an en larged prostate for most of myadult life, but a biopsy showedno cancer. I have had problemswith urgency. I tried a medica tion, doxazosin, with poor re sults, if any. My last visit, theyrecommended nothing morethan medication. Is removingthe prostate not advisable be cause of my age? What's thereason they don't remove itcompletely? —C.W.S. ANSWER: Symptoms of an enlarged prostate in men withoutcancer are common, and the con dition is called benign prostatichypertrophy. BPH can be treatedwith either medication or sur gery. For most men, medicationworks well. Saw palmetto is usedby many men, but well-done tri als have shown it to be no betterthan placebo. Medications likedoxazosin, including tamsulosin(Flomax), often are the first onestried and usually work prettywell, but finasteride (Proscar)and dutasteride (Avodart) are ef fective as well. A combination isprobably most effective of all.However, even that doesn't workfor some men. The most common prostate surgery nowadays is a TURP(transurethral resection of theprostate). This is far less invasiveand has fewer risks than the oldopen method, and generally hasgood results. However, as withany surgery, there is never aguarantee of success, and I haveseen several men get worse afterTURP, even though most get bet ter. Age in and of itself does not necessarily preclude surgery.However, a history of strokedoes make surgery a bit morerisky. I don't recommend surgerylightly, and since you haven't re ported giving finasteride or du tasteride a chance, either alone orin combination, I would recom mend a good trial of those beforecontemplating surgery. The booklet on prostate en largement and prostate cancerdeals with these common maleproblems in detail. Readers canorder a copy by writing: Dr.Roach — No. 1001W, Box536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

We've been told to tie a string around them, or a der matologist he saw told him toget a good pair of cuticle scis sors and cut them off, butthere's way too many to dothat. Is there anything else wemight try? —R.L. ANSWER: Skin tags are be nign growths that are very com mon on the neck, armpits, groinor other places where skin rubs. They are harmless, and noth ing needs to be done about themunless they are cosmetically im portant. The best way to removethem is to have a dermatologistor other expert remove them di rectly. I don't recommend tryingto remove them yourself withscissors, since I have occasion ally seen them bleed enoughafter removal to require a stitch. The last time I wrote about skin tags, several readers wroteto recommend Tag Away, anover-the counter product. It maybe worth a try, although the re views about this product arerather mixed.Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters,but will incorporate them in thecolumn whenever possible.Readers may email questions toToYourGoodHealth@med.cor nell.edu.

Charles Robert Stevens III of the Stevens Land & Catt le team ropes the head of the steer in the team-doctoring event. The steer must also be heeled then marked wit h chalk in order to receive a time (and theirs was pretty darn good at 35.27 s econds). Bear Murphy of the T&M Cattle team, with Coke bottle inhand, gets prepared to milk the wild cow while teammatesShane Perkins and The Big Guy (Kyle Miller) try to holdher steady. Unfortunately, there wasn't enough milk todribble out of the bottle, resulting in a no-time for thisteam in this event. Roxanne Murphy races her way back to the starting linein the second leg of the stampede race. Dennis Carlton Jr. shows how to ride one of these ranchbroncs. He received a score of 66 for this ride, represent ing the Markham Cattle team. Loni Damboise of the Carlton Ranch team runs carryingher saddle, pad, slicker and the rest of her gear in the firstleg of the stampede race. Brett Johnson of the Carlton Ranch team on his bronc be fore his ride went sideways, resulting in several brokenribs for this cowboy. Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land & Cattle teamcomes out of the bucking chute on this bay horse that hasnever been ridden, and her winning streak continuedagainst this experienced rider. Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg STATE FAIR RANCH RODEO KICKS OFF 2014 SEASON! The Florida State Fair ranch rodeo was the opener for the 2014 season, being held on Feb. 12-13. This is a qualifying event for theFlorida Cattlemen’s Association ranch rodeo finals. Hardee’s ownGary Jones was one of the judges (and didn’t get booed too manytimes!). It seems like everyone was working cows in mid-February, so many of the regular teams couldn’t make it, leaving only a total of11 teams, and causing Wednesday afternoon’s performance to be ex hibition only. Of our teams, Switch Ranch was in the Wednesday evening per formance, Carlton Ranch was in the Thursday afternoon perform ance, and Stevens Land & Cattle competed in the Thursday eveningperformance, along with Donald “Bear” Murphy and wife Roxanneon the T&M Cattle team and Dennis Carlton Jr. and brother-in-lawPat Thomas on the Markham Cattle team. Roping and branding is the opening event. Charles Robert Stevens III caught the calf by its foot, which in this event is consid ered an illegal catch, so they received a no-time. Switch completedit in1:03.78 and the Murphy team’s time was 1:03.62. And here’s where it gets exciting (or heartbreaking, depending on which team you are!): This event was won by Dennis and Pat’steam with a time of 34.84 seconds. The Carlton Ranch team camein at 34.88 seconds – a mere four/one-hundredths of a second costthem a win! The second event was the wild-cow milking. Here they do only one team at a time. The three-man team of Dale Carlton, Trae Adamsand Brett Johnson of the Carlton Ranch got the job done in 17.93seconds, Dennis and Pat’s team in 20.88 seconds, Bear and his team mates in 25.15 seconds (but there was no milk in the bottle, so theyreceived a no-time), and Stevens Land in 38.38 seconds. So congrats go to the Switch Ranch team of Peck Harris, Bran don Dieter, Robert Fussell, and Jordan Boyd (never found out whowas the fourth man on this team) for a great time of 12.43 seconds, and the event win! Next up was the double muggin’. The bovines outsmarted the cowboys in this event, with only three teams getting a time. And oneof those three teams was Carlton Ranch, with a time of 50.81 sec onds. If Christi Pryor is on the Stevens Land team, all others might as well concede the stampede race! She has won the state finals thepast two years, and this was her third consecutive win at the FloridaState Fair. She and teammate Billy Adams have this event down toa science (welcomed by teammates Charles Robert Stevens III, Mar shall Godsey and Cody Storey). Team doctoring was the next event. This is where the cowboys have to both head and heel the steer, and doing so in a total of onlythree loops. Switch Ranch and the Murphy’s team received a no-time, Carl ton Ranch came in at 1:22.76 (plus a five-second penalty for onlyheeling one back leg), and Stevens Land at 35.27 seconds with aclean run. But Pat Thomas’ roping skills helped the Markham Cattleteam win this event, with a time of 26.36 seconds (plus the five-sec ond penalty for only heeling one back leg). That left the final event of ranch bronc riding. Marshall Godsey of the Stevens Land team drew the bay horse that has never beenridden, and the horse continued her streak against Marshall! DennisCarlton, Jr. rode for a score of 66, and Brandon Di eter of Switch Ranch for a 69. The event was won by a score of 72, from Shane Perkins filling in for the usual T&M Cattle rider of Adam Turtle. But the “BestRide” award would have to go to Hardee’s own Brett Johnson of theCarlton Ranch team – who landed so hard when he hit the groundthat he fractured a couple of ribs. Hope you’re feeling better, Brett! And this was just another ranch rodeo where the overall firstplace winner did not win a single event (but they did get times in allevents, which is what counts). Unfortunately, it was not one of ourteams, but congratulations to the Carlton Ranch team of Pat andDale Carlton, injured Brett Johnson, Trae Adams and LoniDamboise for tying for second-place overall. (Perhaps we will seethem at this year’s state finals!)Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Greggin on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459. Keep on riding, Cow boys and Cowgirls!

"During the past week, gas price increases slowed until theyfinally stopped over the week end," said Mark Jenkins,spokesman, The Auto ClubGroup. "It is too soon to knowwhether we have seen the peakprice for the season, but this is agood sign that relief is on theway for motorists at the pump." Gas prices typically peak in the spring. During the last threeyears, prices peaked in February2013, April 2012 and May 2011.Summer gas prices becomemore volatile, greatly influenced by demand, geopolitical tensionand natural disasters. Refineries in the Gulf of Mex ico that reduced output duringmaintenance season are return ing to full operation. However,any unexpected setbacks couldcause prices to rise. Meanwhile,tensions between Russia and theUkraine continue to place up ward pressure on the price of oil.There are concerns that sanc tions imposed by Western coun tries might impact exports fromRussia, which would also causeoil prices to spike. Sunday's national average for a gallon of regular unleadedgasoline is $3.67, three centsmore than last week. Since lastweek, Florida's average of $3.76rose four cents, Georgia’s aver age of $3.65 rose seven cents,and Tennessee's average of$3.50 rose two cents.

Owners were pushing dead or declining blocks and replanting in several areas across the citrus region.

By KATHY ANN GREGGSpecial To The Herald-Advocate The seventh annual Best of the Ranches ranch rodeo washeld on Sunday, April 6, in Ar cadia. This was a Working Ranch Cowboys Association sanc tioned event, with the winningteam garnering a spot in the na tional finals to be held in earlyNovember at Amarillo, Texas. And Hardee County will have a presence there! There were Hardee County cowboys competing on five ofthe 10 teams entered, and it wasone of these teams that came outon top. The overall winner wasthe Schroeder ManateeRanch/Deseret Ranch team,which included Brandon Dieterand Justin Peebles. Dieter was raised in Ona, being the oldest son of Steve andRegina Senn, and Jimmy Dieterof Sarasota. He competed inFlorida High School Rodeo formost of his high school years,being sidelined by an accident in2007. In addition to competing in ranch rodeos, doing farrier workand being a ranch dayworker,Dieter’s newest career is that ofbullfighter. He has spent manyyears donating his time andskills to the youth rodeos held inHardee County and the ArcadiaYouth Rodeo. He has recentlyreceived his Professional BullRiders card, and has traveled tovarious venues in the Southeastto work bulls for the PBR. Peebles is a Hardee cowboy by virtue of marriage — he ismarried to the former KellyCumbee, and they have a toddlernamed Wyatt. His wife and sonare at every ranch rodeo in thecheering section, and they areusually accompanied by her sis ter, Lacey, and dad Lamar, Ed wina and Eli. The Peeblesesreside in the St. Cloud area, andhe is employed by DeseretRanch. This ranch rodeo had five events: team sorting, wild-cowmilking, roping and branding,stray gathering, and the ever-popular ranch bronc riding. The SMR/Deseret team won the wild-cow milking event witha time of 37.50 seconds, withPeebles doing the roping choresand Dieter doing the ground work. Dieter then took over theroping duties in the roping andbranding event. The stray-gathering event is one used only at the WRCAranch rodeos. Each team has two“teams” of two cowboys. Work ing simultaneously in the arena,they must each head and heeltheir steer, then mug it and tiethree legs together. When one“team” is done, they can then goassist the other “team” with theground work. Since its inception three years ago, this has proven to be themost difficult event, with themajority of the teams receivinga no-time. This year was no dif ferent, but SMR/Deseret wasone of the three teams to com plete it, in 1:36.90. Dieter waspaired with Stevie John ofMyakka City, and Peeblesworked with Dusty Crosby, afellow Deseret Ranch employee. Dieter was the designated bronc rider for his team, and tiedfor second place with an excel lent score of 70. The winning score was a 76, by Cole Fulfordof the Stevens Land/-FulfordCattle team. Other locals competing were Charles Robert Stevens III of theStevens Land/Fulford Cattleteam, Marshall Godsey of thesecond-place Adams Ranchteam, Alton Langford of the ABar L Cattle team, and JimmyFussell and nephew RobertFussell of the CJ Cattle/KL Barteam. Also involved were Peck Har ris, who carried the Americanflag in the Grand Entry andworked settling the herd be tween teams, and new HardeeCounty resident Donny Boyd,who was one of the judges. Each event had a different team winning it, but when all thescores were tallied up, it was theSMR/Deseret team that took tophonors and will take a trip toAmarillo come Novem-ber!

8A The Herald-Advocate, April 24, 2014 S S p p r r i i n n g g P P e e a a s s , P P l l e e a a s s e e ! One of the best ways to cele brate the coming of spring iswith a basket full of small, veryfresh, sweet green peas. Youknow that peas are fresh whentheir pods are firm and green, soavoid any that are yellowing orwilting. Go for medium podsrather than large, thick-skinnedones, which are more mature andcontain larger, tougher peas.Break open a pod and check thepeas inside. They should besmall, bright green and firm; ifyou taste one, it should be tenderand sweet. If all you can find are large, mature peas, opt for frozen peasinstead. They're usually pickedwhen they're young and tenderand immediately frozen. Maturepeas are not as tender and sweetas young ones, and they're lessversatile. They need to becooked longer and more slowly,and their firmer texture workswell only in stews and braises. Peas provide essential nutri ents and are an excellent sourceof vitamins K and B6, and folicacid, all crucial to bone strengthand cardiovascular health. You'll probably find three types of fresh peas available atthe market right now: English,sugar snap and snow peas. English peas (also called shelling peas, green peas or gar den peas) are the most common.Their pods are inedible, so thepeas must be shelled before eat ing. "Petits pois" is the namegiven to very small English peas. Sugar snap peas have a thicker, edible shell. As the name KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis denotes, this variety is sweet likesugar and makes a distinctivesound when its shell is broken.Sugar snap peas can be eatenboth raw and cooked. Snow peas, often seen in Chi nese cooking, are flatter, thinnerand more translucent than theothers. They are eaten in their en tirety, and no shelling is required. Peas don't have much of a shelf life, so don't store them forlong periods of time. Store podsin a plastic bag in the crisperdrawer of the refrigerator. Usethem within a couple of days. Shelling peas is easy. To do it, remove the stem end of the pod,peel the stringy fiber from theseam, pry the pod open and runyour thumb along the interior todetach the peas. Once they're shelled, the best way to store peas is to freezethem. First blanch them for aminute or two in boiling, saltedwater, and then shock them in anice-water bath until cool to helpmaintain their bright color. Drainand freeze in zip-top bags. Theywill keep for five to six months. Peas lend themselves to almost any cooking method and mixwell with a variety of flavors,such as cured meats. Bacon,pancetta, prosciutto, smokedham and chorizo work wonder fully with peas, as their pro nounced saltiness complementsthe peas' gentle flavor. Fresh mint also is a classic fla vor partner, but feel free to ex periment with other fresh springherbs such as basil, chervil,chives, dill and tarragon. Peasare a natural with onions, scal lions and other alliums, and theypair well with other spring veg etables like asparagus, new pota toes, carrots and fava beans.They're delicious as a side dishwith chicken, lamb or duck, andwith any kind of fish, especiallycod, salmon and scallops. When they're small and tender, peas are great raw in salads. Trythis delicious Sweet Pea and As paragus Salad, and celebratespring!

This paper will be dated 4-2414 and my grandson’s birthdayis 4-24, so Happy Birthdaywishes to T.K. The Easter egg hunt at Fort Green was not as well-attendedas usual, but that is probably be cause so much was going on.The ones in attendance had agood time, but the baby of Kim berly and Dwayne Alexan-derfell on the fireplace and cut hiseyelid and was rushed to thehospital. Mike told me Sundaymorning that the hospital gluedit. Such modern technology. We always have more people in attendance on Easter but thisone was more than the past. Itwas great to see so many oldfriends and new ones. Our choirdid an outstanding job under thedirection of Carol Brown. Therewere solos by Tim Casey, B.J.Haney and Connie Abbott. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to Trish and Ron Wilsonand family on the death of theirinfant grandchild. Many heartswere saddened by this tragedy. Our community was saddened by the final journey of BettyRuth Walker. She was a devoutprayer warrior for our churchand anyone else in need ofprayer. Betty went home lastThursday early in the a.m. Theones in attendance said she toldher husband see you later as sheknew where she was going andthat someday he would also.She had a beautiful service atFort Green Baptist and then afterthe interment, supper at thechurch. Eileen Brannon’s husband and daughter were there. I got toknow Eileen at the Soil Conser vation Office and thus got toknow her husband. Eileen madeher journey some years ago. Fort Green Church has been privileged to have some greatprayer warriors. Three thatcome to mind are Jonnie Revell,Zula Cooper and Betty Walker.All three are and will be sorelymissed. Makayla Chancey has had this stomach virus that is goingaround. It is bad to be sick dur ing school days but when you have a holiday it is worse! FayeChancey has the stomach bug,and Gloria Dupree is a little bet ter. Sam Rawls was in the hos pital overnight but is out andfeeling better. John White andMaxine Dawson are under theweather. James Eures was in a wreck last week but was at church Sun day with some broken ribs and ataped-up hand. Billy Port-er hasbeen moved to Hardee Manorand is not doing well. HarriettHendry is still not well after herrecent hospital stay. Pat Albrit ton has a problem and is meetingwith a Tampa doctor for his ad vice. Gary Oden was at churchEaster but is waiting on answersto tests. Betty Waters still needs our prayer. Chris Blum has had a re lapse of his cancer. His mother,Joan, retired early so she couldbe home with him. There istruly a lot of sickness in oursmall community and needsyour prayers. I went to the fair banquet last week, which was a first for me.I was happy to see Tyler Braggwin second place in weight gainand one of Chip Walker’s girlswon an award. Congratulationsto both of these young people.Plenty of others won but Tyler isa member of our church andChip used to be. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to the family of MargaretRoberts. She made her finaljourney Easter. If her family islike me, Easter will be sad in thefuture. My late husband madehis final journey the day afterEaster and I always rememberwhat we did on that last Easter.I think it is just human nature. Ihave a photo of my daughter ina dress that Margaret andLawrence gave her when shewas a baby. I did not see Mar garet and Lawrence much butyou still consider them friends. Homecoming at Fort Green will be May 4, the first Sundayin May. We have a special guestwho will deliver the sermon.Come on out and listen to himand stay for dinner.

START EARLY Traumatic. Difficult. Painful.Those are words that can apply to downsizing when thetime comes for a senior to moveto a smaller living space. At the same time, it can be ex hilarating. There are numerous websites about senior downsizing, butthey all seem to agree on onething: Get started early. Begin ning months in advance to makethe move a gradual process willkeep stress to a minimum. Here are a few hints to help:Write it down: If you plan to give certain treasures to others,make notes about who getswhat, or give them the itemsnow. If you're going to hire oth ers to help with the eventualpacking and moving, make yourintentions clear, especially ifyour things are going in a num ber of directions. Label every thing so there is no confusionabout whether things get packedor if they're going to be pickedup. Declutter: If you had children who moved out without takingall their gear, it all needs to go,either to the child, a charity orthe trash. Your own belongingsneeded to be sorted into cate gories: definitely keep (heir looms, expensive jewelry),donations (items in good condi tion such as clothing and furni ture), give to relatives(keepsakes and heirlooms) andthrow away (things with no realvalue that you don't use). Labelyour piles and boxes so there areno mistakes with valuable itemsbeing thrown away by accident. When you absolutely can't de cide: Put those belongings inone special box and hold on tothem. You can decide later, once the hubbub of the move is over. Here are a few websites with helpful information on downsiz ing: The National Association of Senior Move Managers athttps://www.nasmm.org/index.cfm Caring.com has a number of tips for clearing out. Or Google "senior downsiz ing."Matilda Charles regrets that shecannot personally answerreader questions, but will incor porate them into her columnwhenever possible.

10B The Herald-Advocate, April 24, 2014 DEAR PAW'S CORNER: Kudos on reminding peoplethat they must be actively in volved with their dogs if theyexpect to have good trainingresults. As someone who is"owned" by an independentSiberian Husky, I can attestthat nothing in life is free(NILIF)! I have a great system your readers may like. It's easy andit works. I have two seniordogs now, a German Shepherd,"Ralph," who was a privaterescue, and "Damian," theSiberian who's been here allhis life. I make both of them sit be fore they get their meal, andthe dish is on the floor. Theyhave to lie down in the morn ing before they get a "snack"piece of plain toast. My hus band and I also make them sitbefore putting their leashes onto take them for a walk. This has worked great over the years and has been a win-win situation for our wholefamily. We also have used the crate training method for years. Ihave a large crate in thekitchen that "Ralph" knows ishis den. He sleeps and naps inthere, and I trained him to gointo it when visitors come tothe house or when I'm takingout the trash. It's turned sothat he can see out of it and geta view of all the activity in ourhome. —Anita C., Rochester, N.Y. DEAR ANITA: Thank you for passing this along! Workingin basic obedience training aspart of everyday life is a greatway to reinforce that training andencourage positive behavior.While not everyone agrees withcrate training, it can be very ef fective when done correctly. TheHumane Society of the UnitedStates has crate training tips atwww.humanesociety.org/ani mals/dogs/tips/crate_training.html.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

April 24, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B My cousin, the one we call Chuck for chuck roast, is well known for his savage appetite and cave man table manners. ——— Yes, Mack, just like you said, without a doubt you are definitely a team player. But what concerns us is just which team are you ateam player for? ——— Should we fail to attend to our driving, then without a doubt in time our driving will attend to us. ——— So many of my former classmates say that I was dumb in school, but they know full well that is not true, because my teachersall said that I was a promotional student, all 40 of them. ——— The other night while dining out at a local seafood restaurant with a most enchanting seaside setting, Sugar Possum ordered herusual order of crab legs shipped directly from Madrid. I also orderedmy usual order, a full platter of oysters from Cape Cod. While waiting for our order to be served, Sugar Possum asked, “Why do you look so worried, Truman?” I said, “Didn’t you see thewaitress. She looks as old as we are.” Sugar Possum says, “O.K., the waitress is as old as we are. So what?” Then I said, “As old as she is, she might not make it back with my great big jumbo platter of oysters. That’s what!” ——— Sometimes when you are trying to explain something to some body, then some 30 minutes later they have still got that blank lookacross their face. It don’t mean they are not asleep just because youcannot hear them snoring. ——— My little Sugar Possum was pretty mad at me because she came home at noon, and I was still in bed. She said throu gh clinched teeth I cannot do like some people do; I cannot be piled up in bed at noonand do nothing. I said, “Me neither. That’s why I sleep.” ——— I just wonder again, have you be chance ever heard somebody shout “BOO” in a funeral home? ——— By chance, have you ever heard of a dog or cat being struck by lightning? ——— I am so aggravated with those who say that my late father was not a responsible driver, just because he would take a little snort outof the old jug on occasion. But he was a responsible driver. He wasresponsible for every wreck he was ever in. ——— If space is indeed our last frontier, then I guess that makes me a squatter. ——— I have always thought that martial arts was an artistic painting of a live subject by some off duty-marshall. ——— All I can say for those who think they know everything is that life is just too simple for them, so it would seem. ——— Oftentimes we are led by ignorance and punished by reality. ——— To be honest Mary Lou was not really much of a cook, but she shore would put the pot over the flames and hope for the best. How ever, it was usually the worst. Jokes & Philosophies With A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas HELICOPTER OR NO HELICOPTER? It was a clear, cool, crisp morning — the smell of orange blos soms in the air and people moving about making preparations forthe Saturday they would spend with their families and friends. None of them imagined that tragedy may be around the next turn. They were enjoying life and the blessings of it. One family, out at a local park miles from town enjoying a pic nic lunch, was startled when they heard the sound of a truck comingthrough the brush. They tried to move out of the way. Mom and Dad just barely made it but were injured just the same. Brother and Sisterwere blessed that they were able to lie flat, and by a sheer miraclethe truck did not touch them. Meanwhile, back at the firehouse, the crew had just finished the lunch that had been put back into the refrigerator four times be cause of the number of emergency calls they were ge tting. Not a problem — they would rather be busy, it makes the 24-hour shift goby even better. At the park, a group of motorcyclists came by and helped the stranded family. The truck that caused this whole thing took off. Twoof the motorcycles followed while the others called 9-1-1 and startedthe wheels in motion, relaying the information of the truck and theinjuries of the mom and dad, which did not appear serious. The Police Department and Sheriff’s Office were in the process of locating the truck and responding to the park. Fire-Rescue waspaged and responded — another call in an already busy day. The fire engine usually responds with the ambulance, but they were already busy on a brush fire. The ambulance arrives with twopersonnel, and they begin assessing the mom and dad. They quicklyunderstand that what appears to be minor is actually two individualsthat have serious unseen internal injuries and abnormal vital signs. The paramedic wisely calls for a helicopter to fly the mom out to a trauma center, as her injuries, according to Fire-Rescue trauma-alert protocol and procedures, meet that criteria. However, the dadhas injuries that are borderline for a trauma-alert helicopter fly-out. The following is quickly considered by the paramedic: to fly the dad or not to fly the dad? “I already have one trauma-alert pa tient, the dad is borderline, the helicopter can usually only take one patient. The cost of the helicopter may be more than this family canhandle.” These are what he thinks about.The paramedic makes the call for a second helicopter, and also requests the closest fire engine to assist with the second patient, asthey have a paramedic on the fire engine and can pr ovide patient care and set up a clear area for the helicopters to land. This story is fictitious. However, it is not uncommon. It is a scenario that we at HCFR are often confronted with. No matter the type of call we respond to, we will always have the best interest of our community as the focal point of our decisions,and we will always do our best to ensure you receive the best pos sible care. P.S. — Mom and Dad are doing fine. The guy in the truck? Well, the PD and SO caught him and threw him in the slammer.Can’t find the key to the cell, though. The Fireside By James Stillwagon Hardee County Fire-Rescue Chief Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 Another week has flown by so quickly that, for me, it seemslike I am in a time warp. Mywish for you is that last weekwas more relaxed for you andyours, especially since we had aholiday weekend. Our love and prayers go to the family of Robert and EmilyWilson Lourcey on the birth andloss of their daughter, MargaretElyse, who came into and leftthis world to be with the Lord onFriday, April 18. Even though we are definitely mission-minded, sometimes itseems like we are growing ourchurch from within at NewHope Baptist, as almost monthlywe have a newborn coming intoour midst. Congratulations toRyan and Amanda Abbott on thebirth Friday of their son, LeviDaniel. Trees and flowers are bloom ing all around our Riverviewarea. Lawnmowers, edgers andblowers can be heard at workeach day throughout the neigh borhood. While some opt forcommercial workers to get itdone, others prefer doing it allthemselves. Next-door neighbors Zach and Priscilla Bowes and childrenMelina and Levi can be seen ei ther tending their many newplants or sometimes just admir ing them. I am able to enjoy thefruit of their labors, as well astheir friendship, as someevenings we are able to chatover the fence.

It is a Monkey and Co conut bank. When a coin is placed in the monkey's paw and a lever pressed, the co conut opens and the coin drops into it as the monkey's eyes move and its mouth opens. It is in fairly good condition considering the age. I have been offered $500 for it. Drew, Appleton, Wisc. A: Your bank was patented on March 2, 1886, by James H. Bowen of Philadelphia. It was manufactured by J. & E. Stevens and Company of Cromwell, Conn. The bank was available on either a brown or red base. I found the Monkey and Coconut bank referenced in "The Official Guide to Mechanical Banks" by Dan Morphy and published by House of Collectibles. Morphy claims this bank is worth somewhere in the $1,000 to $12,000 range based, of course, on condi tion. Q: My dad and granddad were barbers in upstate New York. They both collected re lated items such as razors, shaving mugs, a shoeshine stand and even three barber poles. Are these worth keep ing? Kenneth, Las Vegas, N.M. A: Barber shop collectibles are quite popular. Typical prices include a Victorian-era mug rack, $750; an electrified barber pole from the 1950s, $300; a Koken barber chair, circa 1940, $850; and a razor strop, $35. Values are based on condition and rarity. Christian Jones might be a good contact for you, since he collects and appraises barber-related items. He also is the author of an excel lent guide, "Barber Shop History & Antiques," available at amazon.com. Contact him at 1959 Route 3, Hamilton, NJ 08690; barbershop101@gmail.com; and TBSbarbershops.com. Q: While stationed in Ger many during the 1960s, I col lected several dozen Hummel figurines. Can you recommend a good guide so I can deter mine the values of ones I have? Steve, Salem, Ore. A: Although there are several excellent guides, my personal pick is "M.I. Hummel: Figurines, Plates, Miniatures & More" by Robert L. Miller and published by Portfolio Books. This guide is the most accurate and documents thousands of Hummel items. Especially helpful is a chart of the various Hummel marks, making it fairly easy to date years of pro duction. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

It was a re ally suspenseful indie film, with a lot of new-to-me actors. However, the actor who played the detective looked really fa miliar. Can you tell me who he is and what I might have seen him in? Jessica F. in Georgia A: The actor you are thinking of is Jon Lindstrom, and if you're a soap-opera fan, you'll recog nize him from "As the World Turns" and "General Hospital." He also has guest-starred in nu merous series, such as "Blue Bloods," "Drop Dead Diva," "NCIS" and "Everwood," and the feature film "Must Love Dogs." "How We Got Away With It" due out May 13 on DVD is Jon's first feature film, which he directed, co-wrote, coproduced and also co-stars in. I asked Jon about the experi ence of directing his first featurelength film, and he told me what a meaningful shoot it was: "The whole shoot was really special for me, just being as it was the first time I was directing a fea ture-length film. There was one night, though ... there's an entire sequence, it comes probably about two-thirds of the way through the film, where there are some characters doing some thing at a pier at night. There's essentially no dialogue in it, and the sequence runs for about 10 minutes. "This was the moment where we all knew that the movie was going to work. That's one of the rare things that comes along, when so many things have to go right to make a decent movie. That was the moment I knew this might actually work after all." Q: I love the character of Tessa on "Supernatural" (which also happens to be my favorite show). Will she ever re turn to the series? Desi L., via email A: Lindsey McKeon, who plays everyone's favorite reaper on the popular CW sci-fi series, will return to the show May 13. Lindsey told me she's thrilled to be working with that group again. When I spoke with her recently, she still hadn't received a script, but she knew she defi nitely wanted to reprise her role. "I don't know what I'll be doing or what will be happening, but I am excited. I love the show, and the boys are great. This is one of my favorite characters to play." Q: I was wondering if you could tell me when "Hell On Wheels" is coming back on? Terry V., via email A: AMC's hit Western series will return this summer with a supersize fourth season of 13 episodes, instead of the normal 10. (I don't have an exact date just yet, but follow me on Twitter for updates: @Celebrity_Extra.) If you need to catch up before then, the previous three seasons are all available on DVD.

They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of Jesus.Luke 24:1-3 (NIV)F F R R I I D D A A Y Y But the angel said to the women, Do not be afraid; for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He has risen as He said. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead, and He is going ahead of you to Galilee.Matthew 28:5-6a,7a (RSV)S S A A T T U U R R D D A A Y Y That same day two of Jesus followers were walking to the village of Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem. Jesus Himself suddenly came and began walking with them. Then Jesus took them through the writ ings of Moses and all the prophets, explaining from all the Scriptures the things con cerning Himself.Luke 24:13,27 (NLT)S S U U N N D D A A Y Y That evening the disciples were meeting behind locked doors in fear of the Jewish leaders when suddenly Jesus was standing there among them. And how wonderful was their joy as they saw their Lord. He said to them, As the Father has sent Me, so I am sending you. Receive the Holy Spirit.John 20:19,20b-21 (TLB)M M O O N N D D A A Y Y Thomas, called Didymus, who was one of the twelve, was not with them when Jesus came. A week later, the followers were in the house again and Thomas was with them. The doors were locked but Jesus came in and stood right in the middle of them. He said to Thomas, Put your finger here and look at My hands. Stop being an unbeliever. Jesus said, You believe because you see Me. Those who are truly blessed believe without seeing Me.John 20:24,26,27b,29 (NCV)T T U U E E S S D D A A Y Y Jesus came again and told the disciples. All power in Heaven and earth has been given to Me. You, then, are to go and make disciples of all the nations and baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you, and re-member, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.Matthew 28:18-20 (PME)W W E E D D N N E E S S D D A A Y Y So after talking with them, the Lord Jesus was taken up into heaven, and He took His seat at the right hand of God, but they went out to make their proclamations every where, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed their words by the miracles that followed.Mark 16:19-20 (NEB) All verses are excerpted fromThe Holy Bible: (KJV) King James Version; (ME) The Message; (NCV) New Century Version; (NEB) New English Bible; (NIV) New International Version; (NLT) New Living Translation (RSV) Revised Standard Version; (PME) Phillips Modern English; and (TLB) The Living Bible.
