ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Flooding returned to Gadsden County after the rains soaked the area April 30, May 1 and May 2. The Robertsville Fire Station was threatened when the adjacent field-turnedlakes banks began lapping at the stations door. Similarly, houses were faced with flooded yards and farm equipment was confronted with drenched terrain. Each storm system we get dumps so much rain, the ground doesnt have enough time to dry out before another storm moves in, said Jeanie McDermott, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. Thats whats been happening this spring. The problem was present throughout the area surrounding the station. Parts of Mt. Hosey Cemetery were completely submerged, including several of the gravesites. Earth around some of these stones had begun to wash away. And at least one casket had pushed upward, forcing open the top of its cement vault. There isnt too much we can do, said Arduster House, a deacon at Mt. Hosey Church. We just have to deal with the way it is and hopefully we dont get this much rain again. House said his churchs cemetery was not the only one flooded. He also said the only thing the county can do is dig more ditches to try re-routing the water but any place to which they may re-route the water is already filled. Weve had a real wet spring much wetter than normal, said McDermott. April is usually our driest month. According to the National Weather Service, on April 30, Gadsden County received 2 to 5 inches of rain, depending on the part of the county. On May 1, the county received 1 to 2 1/2 inches. And on May 2, the county received about another half-inch. This amount does not exceed the amount of precipitation experienced in many three-day periods. But with the ground already super-saturated in spots with no natural or engineered drainage, flooding can ensue. Before the rain hit Gadsden County, a clear 000I50P 000I50P THURSDAY, MAY8, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM VOLUME113/ISSUE19 50 14 PAGES, 1 SECTION ISSAC MORGANTimes CorrespondentThe Havana Town Council held a meeting this past week to discuss new city developments, review financial reports and swear in Councilmember Karen Bass. I know Ms. Bass personally and Im glad shes here, Councilman Matt Thro said. Shes very qualified for the position. The meeting also included time for public comment. One Havana resident asked the council to strengthen the communication tools used to reach the public, claiming many residents are unaware of many city endeavors. Council members assured the resident that they are working on improving. Bob Powell of James Moore and Company presented a financial report on the citys utilities, which showed favorable figures with the absence of compliance issues. The water fund was down, and we stayed within the budget, Powell said. Based on the report, the town is very healthy and has very strong numbers. An event request from the Havana Merchants Association to host Havana Days on May 17 was approved by town council members. In addition, the Faade Grant Fund was approved, and a request to close roads temporarily for the downtown events was accepted. Havana Town Manager Howard McKinnon closed the meeting with a report on the Quincy to Havana bus shuttle system, revealing a small increase in the number of bus patrons. We saw a little bit of an increase in bus shuttle numbers, McKinnon said. It makes about 11 trips per month. Havana gets new council member Midway faces legal threat, deficit ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter City of Midway leaders met May 1 for their regular monthly meeting. The council members discussed the citys developmental, financial, and legal issues all of which persist as problems for the city. Were down to our last penny, said Charles Chuck Willis, toward the meetings conclusion. Weve got to be careful how we spend it. Midway faces a lawsuit concerning a lack of payment for work underway on their new fire station. Uncertainty surrounding the plaintiffs capability of suing the commissioners individually, beyond their inclusion in the collective government entity, was a source of consternation. Willis repeatedly asked the council to organize a discussion, assessing what amount is owed and what amount might allow settlement. Dot Inman-Johnson, Midways city manager, steered the city away from such a forum. She said the station is incomplete. Accordingly, she argued the bills could not be assessed, let alone paid, until the contractor and various subcontractors conclude the job for which they were contracted. Inman-Johnson said, for example, that one part of the station marked for tile in the contracted plan was covered with a sheet of linoleum. She also said when the station was first opened to the public, potted plants were placed in front of incomplete bits of the interior. I dont see us paying contractors for Dot Inman-JohnsonMidway city manager. See MIDWAY/ Page A13 Soaked through, waterlogged ROBERT ALLENTimes ReporterThree men were arrested on drug-related charges at 2:45 p.m. May 2 during a traffic stop at the corner of Madison and King streets in Quincy. The suspects are Christopher Eugene Lockett, 36; Michael Johnson, 25; and Conterious Lamar Nash, 31. According to a GCSO report, at the time of his arrest Lockett told deputies he had drugs in his possession and he knew he was going to jail. According to the same report, the pursuit began when a patrolling county deputy was travelling west on Highway 12. The deputy noticed two vehicles, a white GMC SUV and a gold Chrysler sedan, parked in the middle of Neals Temple Road, just west of Havana. A man unidentified by the report was standing alongside the two vehicles when the deputy passed. When he spotted the marked patrol car he stepped away and both cars pulled out. The GMC headed west. The patrolling officer, too far behind, called ahead on his radio, contacting a second unit already at the intersection of Madison and King. The GMC was stopped there without incident. The same report indicates one officer searched the GMC after noticing a strong smell of marijuana. This search yielded no results. The first officer asked a second officer to conduct another search, pointing him toward the front of the vehicle where the scent was strongest. The second officer found a black nylon bag hidden on the floor under the center Deputy interrupts suspected drug sale Rains flood some low-lying areas :ABOVE: Farm machinery is stuck in place, confronted with soft ground and standing water.

This breakfast is open to all interested parties. Quincy CRA Soaring to New Heights ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Quincy Fest, the citys annual soul, blues and barbeque festival, brought hungry, high-spirited crowds out May 3 to the courthouse lawn. The event went successfully, said Dr. Bernard O. Piawah, Quincys director of building and planning. The turnout was very good. Everyone who came seemed to enjoy themselves. The weather was very friendly to us. A line-up of bands performed from noon to 6 p.m. and a small number of local vendors were on the scene. Those few that participated, they sold out, said Piawah, noting the festival is a great opportunity for local businesses. The Gadsden Art Center also set up a booth, allowing children to experiment, hands-on, with the visual arts. When the headlining band, Donnell Davis & the Maximum Treble Band, finished their last tune, the people were still not ready to go home so the band played an encore. Even then, the audience lingered longer in the square, mingling among friends. Davis band had a full rhythm section along with a second keyboard player, second percussionist and two back-up vocalists. Other performers included Anthony and Antavia Williams, Julius Robinson from the program Making the Band 4, Brittani Hannah, Soulful Sounz Band, Chris Skene & the Cards, and ScarletteWimberly. The audience seemed to like what they were listening to, said Piawah. There was dancing and frolicking going on. Personally, I felt good about it. Next year, Piawah said he intends to canvas the neighboring communities with promotional signs that read: All roads lead to Quincy Courthouse Square.

Traditionally a day when we honor our mothers in person, by phone, with a card or flowers, over a meal, or, as for me, in memory Mothers Day also provides us an opportunity for reflection. There are few more essential emotional bonds than that of a mother and child. And while we know difficult circumstances, negative behaviors or other problems do arise between parents and children, weve all had the need for the nurturing love of a mother natural, foster, or adoptive and the support of a caring community. Mothers are the original first responders who across the eons have given of themselves so children, theirs and others, may be healthier, safer and more able to meet the challenges of growing up. Despite the amazing advances in communications technology and medical science, there will never be a substitute for the human contact we all need of loving caregivers of both genders. I consider myself blessed to have had a loving mother and grandmother in my formative years, and so, too, have our two sons enjoyed that great experience of nurturing women in their lives. In special honor of our mothers, please consider sharing a special gift with a charity serving children, a program that works with young moms, a shelter for victims of domestic violence, an agency serving wounded veterans, a service providing dignified care for elders or an advocacy organization affecting policy change on behalf of families. Wouldnt it be a wonderful tribute to our moms, in person, by card, or as a memorial, to give a gift in her honor? Sharing is caring, whether its our time or dollars or both! As part of my 4Generations Institute work, Ive been collecting family remembrances stories passed across the generations which provide a guiding light in my advocacy. I love family history because its what connects us to the generations of ancestors who preceded us, illuminating the experiences of those who immigrated, made their way and shared their values in benefit to their children. Recalling our family history also sparks a sense of responsibility to the future in order to create our own legacies and advocate for causes which help others. I have a document that outlines 100 Family History Questions, a guide for you to record your own familys story. I would be pleased to send it your way. Just send me an email with FAMILY HISTORY in the subject line. My Mothers Day reflection Aaron Cohen and Minnie Golub, both Russian immigrants, lived in the same fivestory tenement house on Mercer Street in New Yorks Lower East Side. They knew each other only by sight. Since a formal introduction was the respected custom, Aarons sister dutifully introduced them in the summer of 1915. At ages 25 and 24, Aaron and Minnie were the oldest single children in their families. Many around them wondered What are they waiting for? as most of their peers were already married. Once the spark was ignited, however, they courted, married, and Minnie became pregnant in three months time. Minnies pregnancy was without any unusual problems, but it was it decided she would not deliver at home in their apartment. She arrived at the Lying-In Hospital of New York on Second Avenue a week before her expected due date and was led to a bright and airy ward which she shared with seven other women. Two of the women had already delivered their babies but stayed on just to be certain all was well. Minnie, at 25, was the eldest. The two youngest were 16 and 17, one of whom had a complicated pregnancy. That girl was two weeks past her due date, hurting and afraid. It was early morning when the sleeping women were jolted awake by the screams. Two nurses rushed in and wheeled the 17year-old girl off. The others were silent, filled with fear. They looked to their new big sister Minnie for comfort. After 20 minutes punctuated by painful moans, horrific shrieks and a brief chilling silence, there was a babys yelp. A nurse came rushing in to Minnies bedside and whispered that the young mother died after delivering a healthy girl. Minnie immediately told the others who were paralyzed with shock. She ended the news-telling with plans for a breastfeeding system for the hungry newborn. Minnie was a natural networker before the concept was defined in advocacy literature. The next night, June 30, 1916, my mother, Ruth, was born. News of the birth spread to out-of-town family via telegram. The next morning with telegram and sack lunch in hand, Minnies cousin Hannah took the ferry from New Jersey to pay a visit. Entering the large room she saw two babies at Minnies bed one suckling at the breast, the other crying bitterly in a rattan bassinet. The cousin said, Minnie, the telegram didnt say twins! Minnie chuckled, and told the story of the young mother who died in childbirth. The cousin looked at the nursing baby, then briefly examined the crying creature in the bassinet, and said, pointing to the baby at Minnies breast, Your baby is far prettier. That one is mine, laughed Minnie, pointing to the crying one. You leave your own to cry while you feed a strangers baby, the cousin whispered. Yes. Theres a baby4THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMESTHURSDAY, MAY8, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COMIhad a difficult time keeping my composure at last nights revival meeting when I learned thatour guest revivalist, Pastor Kerry Beaty, would be touching upon a topic dear to me. Perhaps tonight, if Im feeling the same passion or excitement, it might even be appropriate to shout out Alleluia!It would demonstrate to fellow worshipers that one among them is feeling passion or revived. Pastor Kerry is a runner like me. He had been asked by a student he had coached as a high school chaplain why he ran. My wife has been asking me for the last couple of weeks why I exercise every day running, walking, riding my bike and going to tai chi and yoga classes. I do it because I am so thankful to my Lord for each day that I awaken and am able to draw breath. I want to celebrate my gratefulness for another day of life by using my mind and body to my utmost. I do it because I am so happy to be alive, vigorous and well and that he affords me these opportunities. My new friend, Pastor Kerry, runs for the same reason. He is alive! He is well, in mind, body and spirit. He desires to demonstrate his passion for the gift of life to the one who enables it. As so many of my readers know by now, I start every day by dropping to my knees and thanking my God that I am alive, have a wonderful wife, freedom, food and shelter and all the many gifts that have been bestowed upon me. After my early morning prayer I do my floor exercise routine while listening to Gregorian chant from three different CDs. As I exercise, listening to those chants reminds me of all the other Christians around the world who also are celebrating life, and their gratefulness to God for another day of life, no matter what our state of health may be. As with Pastor Kerry, that question of why he ran caused him to examine himself more closely, as it has caused me to do. My students and friends were always asking me: Why do you run? I am in a state of being revived, thanks to Pastor Kerry and my local pastor, Cecil Brown. I am proud to state that I belong to Leesburg Missionary Baptist Church in Leesburg, Fla. Ever since Sunday a spirited revival has been going on, and from my point of view, it has already been successful. Its difficult to keep from being revived when Judy and I and the rest of the congregation have the good fortune to have Pastor Kerry Beaty ministering to us each night for a week. The revivalist had us focus on running, with the intention of winning the ultimate prize eternal life in heaven. The apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 9: 24-27 said: Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will last forever. The Christian who is running to win the prize finds immediately that it takes hard work, self-denial and is always a grueling preparation. As Christians, we should all be running to win the prize: our heavenly reward. Pastor Kerry, like our own Pastor Brown, is passionate, compassionate and a skillful speaker. One cannot help be moved by the godly messages delivered by these two men. On the first night of our revival Pastor Kerry offered us several definitions of revivalfrom a variety of sources. As most of us would agree, revivalis all about rekindling our Christian spirit, to become more passionate in all our Christian undertakings and to demonstrate to those around us our fervor and hunger for the word of the Lord. He stressed the importance of being passionate about people. In the world at large most of us are passionate about the wrong things: pets, material possessions and electronic gadgetry. Being truly revived is all about possessing passion for people. Too many churches today are mainly concerned with methodology, history and/or tradition. Church leaders, as well as parishioners, have to be more flexible and people-loving. Any of us attending the revival are able to greet fellow parishioners and those we know with a warm hug, handshake or uplifting words of greeting but may be ignoring those who most need a greeting and the feeling of being welcomea stranger or visitor. Pastor Kerry shared that he has been in churches when one seated in the rear of a church, got up, and walked to someone he knew at the front of the church and ignored all those sitting in attenLetters to the editorOpinionMothers Day messageDialing in the darkWe have lived in Quincy for almost eight years and have never had a phone number that worked for after-hours power outages. Numbers are published in the paper; I cut them out and paste them by the phone. But the number is never correct. Last summer on a Sunday evening a nice young lady at QPD tried very hard to help us, and she told us the number was an answering service in Tallahassee, but there was no answer. When I addressed this with city hall, I was told they had been having a problem with this service. Do we need to know who is handling our outages and how long it would take them to respond? Emergencies and electrical power are synonymous when will we have a life-threatening problem? Please give us some support and reassurance that we are getting the service we pay for and deserve! A phone number is only good if there is someone to answer it. Vaughnell Marsh QuincyEditors note: 850-627-9506 is the number identified as the citys after-hours number to report power outages. The first phone call by the Times attempting to verify this number just after noon Monday did not connect successfully.

Bobcats shut out Cedar Creek in regional opener After finishing the regular season with a record of 20-5 and the title of District 1-2A champions, the Munroe Bobcats began the FHSAA 2A regional baseball playoffs with a convincing 5-0 win over District 2 runner-up Cedar Creek Christian from Jacksonville. The Bobcats dominated all phases of the game, holding the visitors to one hit while collecting 10 of their own and committing only a single error. I felt like we were well-prepared mentally for this game, said Coach Jayme Williams. I was a little concerned with having to dodge all the rain and being somewhat off schedule, but our players really sharpened their focus. Junior Nolan Haire was a big part of the game story, as the slender right-hander pitched a complete game shutout. In addition to limiting the Saints to one hit, Haire struck out five batters and induced several ground balls the Munroe defense easily converted to outs. Nolan had a really good game, said Williams. He had great command of his pitches and he was as focused as Ive seen him. He was able to throw his off-speed pitches for strikes, and that allowed him to keep them off balance. The Bobcat offense was no less impressive, pounding out 10 hits against the two Cedar Creek pitchers, Logan Schrock and Justin Brown, who entered the game a combined 11-4 and allowing only one earned run per game between them. Senior Myles Edwards led the way with a double and a solo homer, drivingWWW.GADCOTIMES.COMTHEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMESTHURSDAY, MAY8, 2014 5 Sports Munroe softball out in second round of playoffs SUSIE MORRISTimes Sports CorrespondentThe Munroe softball team lost for the fourth time this season to Aucilla Christian Academy, but it was this loss that stung the most. The Warriors won the 2A Region 1 semifinal game 100 and ended the Lady Cats season. The game was originally scheduled to be played the previous Tuesday but the weather kept the two teams rescheduling day after day. One plan was to meet in Gainesville Wednesday, April 30, and then Thursday, May 1, in order to keep the 2A state tournament on schedule, but the rains moved farther south, and those plans were scrapped. It was finally determined that they would wait until Saturday, when the sun was returning to the forecast, pushing the state playoff bracket back three days. Aucilla jumped on the scoreboard early, scoring four runs in the bottom of the first inning. The score remained 4-0 until the fourth inning when Aucilla sent another run across. Over the next four innings, the Warriors scored another five runs and ended the game in six innings due to the 10run mercy rule. Anna Jones earned Munroes only hit of the day. There were four walks and 12 strikeouts. Maddey Pappadakis stole one base. Jeri Sloan struck out five and walked one. Coach Mark Allen said after the loss, We lost to a very good softball team that should make it to the Final Four. We cant hang our heads over this one. It was a good season and we return all our players for next season. The Munroe team finished the season 12-11. The team had no seniors and will return the entire team. They were coached by Mark Allen and Dennis Cato.

Alta McNalley is one of them. Although I can no longer picture her face, I can clearly hear her saying, Im just plain. I like old-fashioned singing; I like oldfashioned ways. When I met her some years back she was the pastor of a little holiness church. I remember her saying how she loved yard sales and flea markets because you never know what kind of blessings God had for you communion sets, baby stuff for a church nursery, fabric for curtains, even a husband. The husband she found at an estate sale in Michigan. She and a man she had never met before were talking about an old washing machine when he invited her for a cup of coffee. She politely refused, saying she didnt have coffee with strange men. And then she heard God tell her that the man was the answer to her prayers. Before that, she had lived a hard life, starting with being one of 10 children of a poor Kentucky coal miner one holler over from Loretta Lynn,and then being married to a man who treated her cruelly. They had three children, whom she took to church with her every Sunday. Hed beat me for going and beat me for coming home,she said. Sometimes he wouldnt even let me come in the house. Her only relief came when he traveled to Oklahoma from their home in Michigan, staying away for months at a time. He eventually died from lung cancer. She said one day she was working on the back of a harvester out in the muck, harvesting potatoes, earning about 40 cents an hour. She heard God telling her, Feed my lambsand, Feed my sheep. She went to see her pastor, who told her God was calling her into the ministry. She told him, Why would he call me? Im unlearned I only went to the eighth grade. But he told her God takes the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. So, she learned the Bible, and once her husband died and her kids were grown, she traveled as an evangelist, preaching the gospel, plain and simple. She also started praying for a husband, a good one. I never had one before,she said. So, I asked God for somebody to stand beside me and help me. Her first husband had told her she was too stupid to preach. Then she met Mr. McNalley. After they married, they moved to Florida where Alta met friends who urged her to start a church. They rented a warehouse, bought old hymnals from a nearby church so they could sing the oldtime songs and used seats that were originally from an old theater in town. Whatever they needed, she prayed for it. She had seen Gods hand of blessing and miracles on her life, including her daughter being healed of cancer. She simply, plainly, trusted God. Its been a number of years since I visited with Alta, and I dont know whatever happened to her. The church was called Deliverance Tabernacle, which is aptly named. The Lord had delivered Alta from her old life of sadness and abuse and she believed he could and would deliver others. I remember she was loving and full of compassion, and she laughed. When Jesus touches people with sad lives and makes them un-sad its akin to the blind being able to see or the lame running a 5K, laughing all the way for the sheer joy of it all. She told me, I dont know a whole lot, but I believe in holiness and walking clean. I know that when the Spirit of the Lord is on me, everything is clear. In this day of hightech churches where you can give your tithes and offerings online and follow the sermon notes on your smart phone all which I love because that is how you reach a younger generation theres something intriguing and appealing about plain and simple: Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so. God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Amazing grace, how sweet the sound, that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now am found, was blind but now I see. The Lord is my shepherd; I have everything I need.

She motioned the cousin to draw closer, her eyes darting around the room. This is to show an example to them, those other girls. If we think just of ourselves and our own babies, not only will others needlessly suffer, but so will our own. We all need someone else at some time. This is good practice for being a good mother. Hannah understood. Minnies philosophy was simple: Care for your own, but care about others, too. Minnie believed we are all connected in some way under Gods watchful eye, but we are obligated to take action to help others. The gifts we give reward the receiver and giver both.

8THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMESTHURSDAY, MAY8, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM FAMILY FEATURES This grilling season, choose lean, tender lamb as the centerpiece for your summer entertaining menu. Once served only for Easter, theres no reason why lamb cant be enjoyed all year long. Just as turkey has moved beyond Thanksgiving to become everyday fare, the same is true with lamb meat its readily available for all seasons and easy to prepare, allowing for lamb kabobs, burgers, thinly sliced leg of lamb and chops to be a delicious addition to your grilling occasions.Myths behind the meatIn my career as a cookbook author and cooking instructor, I have never seen a more misunderstood ingredient than lamb, said Amy Riolo, award-winning author, chef, televi sion personality and culinary educator. While prized in most other places in the world, lamb remains a mystery to most Americans. If you havent tried lamb in a while, you may be surprised by this flavorful protein. While often confused for mutton, the tougher meat of older lamb, young lamb is tender. Others may shy away from this choice protein, believing it has a gamey taste. But modern lamb is raised differently than in the past, resulting in a sweeter, succulent taste. Can lamb fit into a healthy diet? Sure! This rich-tasting meat contains, on average, 175 calories per 3-ounce serving. Lastly, people assume its expensive; but value cuts, such as the shoulder, leg and ground lamb can fit into any grocery budget.A better-for-you selectionServe up lean lamb cuts including the leg, loin and rack for a proteinand nutrient-packed dish. In fact, on average, a 3-ounce serving delivers almost 50 percent of your daily protein needs and is a good source of iron. Also rich in zinc, selenium and vitamin B-12, a 3-ounce serving of lamb can provide nearly five times the amount of essential omega-3 fatty acids when compared to beef. Lamb is also raised without the addition of synthetic hormones.Grill up goodnessChef Amy Riolo provides these tips for serving up the most scrumptious, savory lamb right from your own grill.In a hurry? Choose cubed leg of lamb for kabobs, rib chops or boneless butterflied leg of lamb cuts which can be grilled in minutes.Aromatics are lambs best friends. Onions, garlic, spices and lemon juice enhance the natural sweet flavor in lamb.Grilling lamb with garlic, mint and olive oil is a great way to introduce lamb for first-timers. Cut slits into the lamb meat and insert pieces of garlic cloves, then rub with oil and dried mint.Use a meat thermometer to measure the internal tem perature. Lamb will continue cooking after you pull it off the grill, so its best to remove it about 10 degrees lower than your target temperature.Lamb is best served medium rare (145F) or medium (160F). All ground lamb should be cooked to 160F. For more lamb recipes and cooking tips, visit www.leanonlamb.com, www.pinterest.com/leanonlamb or on Twitter @leanonlamb.

dance in between. I have been guilty of this myself on occasion. Revival helps one to be more aware of people one does not know or visitors and going out of our way to make the stranger or visitor feel at home in our church. Judy and I move around a lot. We have done church seeking on more occasions than we like to admit. However, we have also left a church, even upon our first visit, if we happened to be sitting between people who knew one another in front of, or behind us. Weve had people in the row directly ahead of us turn around and speak to someone in the row directly behind us and completely ignore us, as if we werent ever there. Weve also risen from our pew and left that same church immediately after that experience. Its like entering a church for the first time where greeters dont greet and make visitors feel as if they didnt matter at all. I love it when a guest like our dear revivalist, Kerry, shares words of wisdom that are short and sweet in order that hungry Christians can readily recall them and put them to use immediately. He stated that as Christians we should always remember bookends.That is, upon first entering church, the Lord should be our first thought in mind and spirit. Upon leaving ones house of worship, your last thought should be of the Lord. So, upon departing Leesburg Missionary Baptist at the close of each night of revival, immediately after Ive stopped speaking with Pastor Beaty, Ive had to refocus on the Lord before I left the building. Usually, I cant wait to thank him for his message and helping to revive my Christian spirit. Last night I was so excited about letting him know how much I enjoyed his message and his addressing why runners run. Before I close I have to share another adage the revivalist gave us: When a mosquito bites a Christian it knows theres truly power in the blood, especially if it bites a Christian whos been revived recently.We had sung earlier that evening the well known hymn, Theres Power in the Blood (of Jesus). sPastor Kerry Beaty is the minister of Lone Oak Baptist Church in Plant City, Fla. 10THEGADSDENCOUNTYTIMESTHURSDAY, MAY8, 2014 WWW.GADCOTIMES.COM 1-877-676-1403 Retail FurnitureSALES CONSULTANTFar mers Home Fur nitur e is seeking the right person to fill an important role in the growth of our Quincy store.

ROBERT ALLENTimes Reporter Municipal elections in Gadsden County concluded at 7 p.m. on April 29. Various seats were contested in Havana, Gretna and Quincy. Despite the foul weather, candidates and their street teams could be seen campaigning up to the last days and hours of the race. Quincy campaigners stood in the wind and rain outside city hall, holding signs and shouting slogans Everything went well, as expected, said Shirley Green Knight, supervisor of elections. We havent had anyone call to contest anything. Local history was made in Quincys district 1 race, according to candidate Vivian Howard, when she ran albeit unsuccessfully. No woman has run in district 1, ever, she said. I am the woman. Ronterious Green, another unsuccessful district 1 candidate, expressed disappointment with what he considered low voterparticipation. Knightly offered a different perspective. This one, for Quincy, was the normal turnout, she said, noting the citys 37.22 percent participation was perfectly in line with the average, a number usually between 37 and 38 percent. Turnout in Gretna, on the other hand, actually was low, according to Knight. Clarence Jackson, II, incumbent winner of Gretnas district 1 seat, agreed. He reasoned that the bad weather during crucial voting times such as when people are headed home from work may have discouraged certain citizens from making their way to the ballet box. But Jackson wasnt complaining. I had two challengers so I was very pleased with the ultimate outcome, he said. I won pretty handedly, which means the citizens are pleased with the direction we are going. In the last four years, he said he managed to have eight dirt roads paved. The reelected commissioner said he hopes to see another eight dirt roads paved in the next four years. Im encouraged, he said. Weve got a lot done with a little. The elections in Havana demanded no rotation of the local leadership. I thought it turned out the way it should, said T.J. Davis, incumbent victor of town council seat 4. Weve got one of the most stable governments in the county. Davis said he thought it was good the people who have been on the council will remain on the council, noting the groups lack of petty conflicts and tendency toward effectiveness. It looks like well keep doing what were doing, he said. Weve had perfect audits for many, many years. Several local seats in Greensboro and Chattahoochee also went through an elecfront had formed April 29, stretching roughly northeast to southwest, bisecting the Panhandle. This mass of precipitation extended as far west as Texas and as far north as New York. The formation, moving west, cut across the eastern part of Jackson County, almost reaching Gadsden on April 29. By April 30, the formation moved into Gadsden while continuing to pour rain in excess of 10 inches on one day alone in the western portion of the Panhandle, namely southern parts of Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties. Beginning on April 30, Governor Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for much of the Panhandle, including Gadsden County. Everyone on both sides of us was torn up, said Maj. Shawn Wood of the Gadsden County Sheriffs office. We were lucky.

To one who bears the sweetest name, HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Your children: Regina, Albert, Rudy, Grandchildren & Great-grandchildren work that is not finished, she said. The city manager also said what was finished is in a horrific condition. Meanwhile, Councilman Charlie Smith questioned the citys record-keeping. If you dont have a paper trail, you have to pay the man whether you owe him or not, said Smith. Delores Madison motioned to remove the city attorney, Henry Hunter, from his position. She argued he is under-experienced as a governmental attorney and thus underqualified for the city position. If we had a government attorney, we would not have these cases, said Madison. The motion failed. Madison and Councilmember Allean Robinson cast the votes in favor of Hunters removal. Councilmember Willis abstained from voting, citing unspecified business connections. Other points of discussion included the emergency planning, park management, and the annexation of new properties into the city limits, a potential move to generate increased tax revenue.

DAY IN COURT Witschonke By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate It took nearly three hours to make a decision. When it was over, Horst Witschonke was no longer amember of the Hardee CountyIndustrial Development Authority. The Hardee County Com-mis sion held a hearing last week todetermine whether cause existed for the removal of the recentlyappointed Wit-schonke from theboard. County attorney Ken Evers opened that portion of the com mission meeting by reading hisusual summary about a quasi-ju dicial hearing, meaning it wouldbe handled like in court, withonly expert, competent testi mony. Each side would be given45 minutes to present its case. Before the meeting was over, it had been downgraded into apublic hearing, with several ofthe 30-40 members of the audi ence expressing their opinionsfor or against the issue and an al most constant undertone of ver bal comments from theaudience.

Eventually you learn thatthe competition is against the lit tle voice inside you that wants toquit, said physician and authorGeorge Sheehan. Several people will be trying to beat that little voice tomorrow(Friday) when they take on theSendMeMissions third an-nual5K Run/Walk. As of Tuesday morning, 375 runners were registered to takepart, but race director JamieDavis-Samuels says they expect about 50 or more people willregister to run on the day of therace. Last years 5K helped raise over $14,000. This year Davis-Samuels hopes to raise $18,000.The money will be used to oper ate SendMeMissions from July2014 to June 2015. It also willgo toward helping people onmission trips and for local andforeign mission projects, ac cording to SMMs website. The 5K will start in down town Wauchula just behind theHardee County Courthouse onOrange Avenue. Runners and walkers will then head ontoSouth Florida Avenue, then turnright onto Stenstrom Road, turnagain onto Hanchey Road andfinally turn on Main Street. Thefinish line will be in front ofGiovannis restaurant. Davis-Samuels asks people who live along that route to keeptheir pets tied up, in a fenced-inarea or inside their homes duringthe duration of the race, whichwill be from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thisis as a safety precaution for boththe pets and the runners.

The petition, or free, method is simple and easy, and can beexplained by Deputy Super-visor Lisa Lamboy when hope fuls arrive at the ElectionsOffice on U.S. 17 and OakStreet to pick up a candidatepacket. It involves collecting a mini mum of 124 signatures on a pe tition asking to have ones nameput on the ballot.

While roughly 12 days re main, the required signaturescan usually be collected withinone weekend.

A call or visit to the Elections Office will tell interested per sons what district they livewithin. The County Commission pays $31,128 a year. The SchoolBoard pays $26,334 annually. Members of either board serve four-year terms. As of this Wednesday morn ing, two current School Boardmembers have no competition,Lamboy said. Those seats nowbelong to Paul Samuels andThomas Trevino.

Some citrus growers are interesting in bringing back the root stocks of sour orange, rough lemon and even grapefruit. As a Miami Herald bureau chief in Fort Myers, I covered the 1968 trial when an all-white jury convicted James Richardson, anAfrican-American, of poisoning his seven children in Arcadia witha motive of collecting insurance money. Someone put parathion poi son in the childrens oatmeal, beans and rice, and a few hours laterthey became deathly ill, many of them at school. He spent 21 yearsin state prison before being released. Betsy Reese, their babysitter, later said she poisoned the chil dren. She spent her latter days at Hardee Manor in Wauchula.Richardson and his wife were fruit pickers. State Rep. David Kerner,a Democrat from Lake Worth, urged the Florida Legislature t o award Richardson $50,000 for every year he spent in prison. Richardson,78, is now a minister in Wichita, Kan., and would use the money tocreate a church, his long-time attorney Robert Barrar told Jessie VanBerkel of Halifax Media Services. Barrar said Richardsons convic tion in 1968 was an unconscionable case of Southern justice. Mitt Romney, the Republican presidential candidate in 2012 in November was quoted by Associated Press for his opinion on po tential GOP nominees for the 2016 race for U.S. president who hadthe most potential to win. He mentioned Wisconsin Rep. PaulRyanhis running mate in 2010, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, formerFlorida Gov. Jeb Bush, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. I would like to see Jeb Bush or Romney be the next U.S. pres ident. Wilson and Daniel Graham. Grady Johnson has drawn oppo sition from Russell Me-lendy. There is still plenty of time for anyone else who wants to run. The non-partisan Hardee County School Board is an ex cellent starting point, for in stance. Its twice-monthlymeetings typically last less than20 minutes, and generally ad dress just one or two items onthe Action Agenda. The publicrarely attends. No other governmental entity in the county, which includesthree municipalities and theircommissions, meets for less time and considers fewer issues. Again, a total of three seats are currently up for grabs on theSchool Board, and its membersare each paid $26,334 a year. For more of a challenge, the Hardee County Commissionmay be the place to serve. 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. The Elections Office is open Monday through Friday from 8a.m. to 5 p.m. It is situated nextto the Hardee County Public Li brary, on U.S. 17 in Wau-chula.

ELECTIONContinued From 1A o Lakeland Regional MedicalCenter, where he died. Bobe was taken to Florida Hospital Heartland in Sebring,where he was treated for his in juries and released. Both men were wearing seat belts, Mee said. Ritenour becomes the fifth person to die on Hardee Countyroads since the start of the year,the same number of roadwaydeaths in all of 2013. CRASHContinued From 1A Have you ever heard of somebody who had a pet buzzard? One good thing about having him for a pet is that you would not have toworry about feeding him leftovers, and you certainly would not haveto warm it up in the microwave because he will eat anything. It takes a builder to build a house, but it takes love for it to be come a home. Should you happen to see an ambulance come by headed in the direction of the hospital with all sirens and flashing lights revolvingat full capacity, all of this a result of a bad car wreck. However, theambulance is traveling at only 12 miles per hour. With all thingsconsidered I would guess the victim who is laying on the gurney back there in the ambulance is a sure bet to be the mother-in-law ofthe ambulance driver. Upon occasion an old flame may be rekindled but rarely to enjoy the longevity once known. My distant cousin and his wife, referred to as Mr. Spick and Mrs. Span, were recently awarded the Seal of Lousy Housekeepingby the County Health Department. Mr, and Mrs. Spick and Spanwere so elated with this award that words could never express howproud they were. They even said they thought such awards wereonly for the rich and famous. I think it would be fair to say that a hot head is the result of an overheated brain and a blown thermostat. I told Sally I love her so very much, but now I am torn between her and my billfold. In todays world without any doubt I would be an extremely wealthy man if I did not have to deal with reality. Sugar Possum got the news the other day that she is a greatgrandma to a little baby boy who weighted 8 pounds, 8 ounces uponhis arrival out in Texas. She told her daughter that due to the badcondition their cars are in the little feller will probably be grown bythe time they make it out there to see him. The hand of greed is known by and unyielding grip. Have you ever heard of a fortune teller telling a mans wife, after a little extra charge of course, that her hubby has been cheatingon her? Absolutely love can never be bought at any price. However, a generic can be rented by a surrogate on a time-sharing plan. A chilling statistic ... are you aware that each year some 400 ,000 people die from tobacco-related deaths here in the U.S.? These hor rible statistics reawaken those haunting words by the late movie starYul Brenner, who at the time was himself under a death sentencefrom lung cancer, when he said, Dont smoke. Dont smoke. Andto my readers I say also, dont smoke, dont smoke, for your sakedont smoke. When can you tell if somebody is enjoying a funeral at hand? He is the one sitting back there in the corner while wiping his tearsaway with the will his rich uncle has left him, with smudge markswell defined across his tearful face. What I see in a good healthy argument is two people exchang ing two different veiwpoints. Though the discussion may be tem peramental on certain points, but in the end you shake hands andwalk away, knowing the two of you have enriched your educationto a higher level. However, I have been known to be involved a timeor two with some idiot who does not even know that 2 plus 2 equals6, and I wind up with my usual 2 black eyes, a busted lip and 2 or 3cracked ribs, and after all this I still have got to run.Truman A.

Jokes & Philosophies With A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas TEACHER RATINGS An important word inad vertently was dropped froma sentence in last weeksPage One story on theValue-Added Model whichrates the states teachers. That word was junior, and should have been usedto identify Hardee JuniorHigh School as the localschool showing over half ofits teachers as needing im provement. Without that important word, readers were di rected to Hardee High in stead. In fact, as the storywent on to explain, HardeeSenior High Schools teach ers rated about 98 percenthighly effective or effec tive. Only one percentranked as needs improve ment. At Hardee Junior High School, about 44 percent ofteachers rank in those toptwo categories, while nearly54 percent needs improve ment.

C ORRECTIONS & LARIFICATIONS n asked to review the behaviorof all members of the IDA, butstated they did not deem thatnecessary and focused solely onWitschonke. Because Evers is attorney for both the commission and IDA,the commission had approvedpaying attorney Bert Harris upto $10,000 to represent it in theproceedings. Harris called threewitnesses, IDA chairpersonVanessa Hernandez and boardmembers Dorothy Conerly andJohn ONeil to establish thatWitschonke had violated Flor-ida Statutes 159.45 in malfea sance, misfeasance anddereliction of duty. He asked each for a summary of their occupations and thenasked them questions aboutWitschonkes time with theIDA, whether he went off topicson the agenda, disrupting meet ings and asking questions ofmatters which had already beendiscussed and decided by theboard. Each was asked to give an opinion of whether Witschonkeshould be removed from theIDA and each answered in theaffirmative. Harris did not use all his allot ted 45 minutes and said hewould use the balance to make aclosing statement at the end ofthe hearing. Witschonke represented him self, noting first that he was anengineer and had spent over 30years working with the federalEnvironmental ProtectionAgency in enforcement of per mitting, especially the last fivewhen he worked in liaison withthe FBI on criminal investiga tions. He said he kept asking ques tions during meetings becausehe wasnt getting answers fromthe IDA about the PF Mann fa cility approved for the Com-merce Park. He had researchedit on his own, although it hadbeen approved before he becamea member of the IDA. Because of his repeated ques tioning and allegations duringIDA meetings, Witschonke wasunder a cease and desist man date issued by the companys at torney, who threatened legalaction against Witschonke and/-or the IDA if he persisted. Witschonke described a bait and switch situation, which hesaid led to the erroneous ap proval of PF Mann. He said afterrepeated requests, he was finallygiven the information he had re quested from the IDA office, in cluding several videos orskypes. He referred to the website Wake Up Hardee to see the fourclips he said proved his points.He wanted to discuss other IDAprojects beside PF Mann butwas directed by CommissionChairman Rick Knight to stickto the issues brought up on whyhe was being considered for re moval from the IDA. He did not use all his 45 minutes and gave the balance of 18minutes to Henry Hank Kuhl-man. He said the IDA did nothave a written policy aboutsticking solely to agenda topicsuntil recently, when it was ap proved as a way to controlWitschonkes questioning. He kept bringing up the topic because he wasnt getting anyanswers. He should be rewardedfor it, said Kuhlman. He saidWitschonke had informationabout engineering prototypesbut was ignored. He went on to allege that membership on the IDA wasrigged to be people who wouldagree with whatever its director,Bill Lambert, wanted withoutquestioning him. He said manymembers of the board should beremoved for dereliction of dutybecause they failed to ask ques tions and demand proof of po tential projects. Harris used his remaining time to counter allegations. Hesaid the statutory purpose of theIDA was to foster economic de velopment and testimonyshowed Witschonke did notoffer positive information tohelp in economic development. Commissioner Grady Johnson said he had been against theprocedure from the beginningand spending taxpayer moneyfor it. He said from his 30 yearsof law enforcement experience,he would give great weight tothe statements of Witschonkebecause of his background in in vestigation and enforcement. After commissioners Mike Thompson and Colon Lambertmade and seconded a motion toremove Witschonke, the meet ing was opened to public com ment, which recessed soeveryone could attend the Na tional Day of Prayer cere monies. It resumed at 1:30. Those speaking included Frank Kirkland, John RoyGough, Robert Cole, John Ter rell, Kuhlman, Linda Clark,Susan Hendry, Nancy Craft andRhonda Cole. Kirkland said three minutes apiece was not enough to airour grievances and it wouldhave been important, as in acourt of law, to view any physi cal evidence, including lookingat the videos and other informa tion Mr. WItschonke had to getall the facts. Gough said spending the money the commission did, itshould review the entire IDAboard, not just Horst and DonaldSamuels, the ones who the IDAwas upset with. Are there min utes, who keeps them, is there arecord of negative votes otherthan Horst or Donald? Robert Cole said he was at the same meetings the witnesseswere and he saw it differentlythan they had. If what Horstsaid about PF Mann turns out tobe true, will you remove the restof the IDA board for malfea sance? No, you wont do that. Terrell said he had experience with the Sunshine Law and heagreed with what the commis sion was doing, but you havethe wrong person. There arepeople (on the IDA) who sitthere and never ask questions.They look down the table all thetime to see what they should do.Ive dealt with board all my lifeand have dealt with troublemak ers, never for someone askingquestions. Kuhlman reiterated that other members of the IDA had missedvotes, even asked questions andwerent considered disruptive.Horst is sorry he was disrup tive, he didnt know, there wasno policy. Clark said, I just want to mention that you should love thesinner and hate the sin. Why is ita policy in Hardee County thathonesty is not rewarded but dis honesty is, drawing clappingfrom some in the audience. Hendry said she had worked with a chamber of commerceand never heard complaintswhen a person went off topic.She said she drove by the TechRiver complex and theres neverbeen more than nine cars there,although there were to be at least11 jobs for the millions of dol lars given the company. Craft gave a brief history of the IDA and park Mr. Revellgave to the county, which choseto move the Health Departmentto the prime land off U.S. 17 anddecided to get a different eco nomic development park. Shesaid in the 64 years she has livedin the county, she has never seensuch disagreement. Again, all the meeting, including audience comments, canbe viewed on the clerks websitegiven above. When audience comments ended, commissioners Thomp-son, Lambert, Sue Birge andJohnson gave statements of theirthinking on the matter. Knightmade no statement. Birge saideveryone wanted whats best forthe county, but it has to be donein an orderly manner. Thompson said he had no an imosity to Witschonke but hedidnt believe the mans actionswere good for the county, espe cially allegations that the federalRICO ACT had been violated,without any evidence of it.Thompson said disagreementwas not only allowable but nec essary, but in every meeting,Witschonke had gone off thereservation. Lambert also said he had little interaction and no quarrel withWitschonke, but when he (Lam bert) attends IDA meetings, he wonders why anyone wouldwant to come to Hardee Countyto set up a business. Johnson spoke at length, re viewing three years ago going toTallahassee for the state audit re port on monies given to a busi ness that didnt exist and all thethings that had happened. Iwould give anything to sit be fore a federal grand jury to lookat whats going on. With perse cution of this man, I dont un derstand why Jerry Hill (stateattorney general for the 10th Ju dicial Circuit) hasnt asked thefederal government to take alook at it. The roll-call vote ended 4-1, with Johnson opposing the mo tion to remove Witschonke, whothen said he accepted the com missions decision but felt therecord had been established.

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A COURTESY PHOTOS The Florida State Science & Engineering Fair recently took place in La keland with eight students from Hardee Senior High and Hardee Junior High attending: (fro nt, from left) Dylan Davis and Joseph Wood, both from HJH; (back) Zackary D urastanti, Jansen Walker and Krupa Ahir, all from HJH, and Meagan Shivers, Emelie Wolgast and Rebec a Es pinoza, from HHS. By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Albert Einstein once said, The important thing is to neverstop questioning. Hardee County students had a lot of questions, and theywerent going to wait untilsomeone else came up with ananswer. Eight students from thelocal junior and senior high at tended the Florida State Science& Engineering Fair earlier thismonth, with projects they hadbeen working on for months,some even years. One Hardee Junior High stu dents project was so well donethat she was named one of thefour Grand Award winners in thejunior projects. Jansen Walker,daughter of John and Jeri KayWalker, competed against 452other projects in the junior divi sion to earn this title. Jansen also won first place in botany for the junior section,was awarded $200 cash from theFlorida Department of Agricul ture and Consumer Services,was Best in Fair in the juniorsection of biological sciences,was made a designated YingScholar and received $500 fromDr. Nelson Ying. Her project was titled, Does the length of time off of the treeaffect the sugar content (brix) ofcitrus sinensis? Jansen came upwith the idea for the projectthanks to her dad, who is a citrusgrower. She says, I was wondering if hes losing money while his or anges sit on the trailer waiting tobe processed. She worked onthis project from September of2013 to January 2014. When asked if she would fur ther her research on this project,Jansen said she might if shecould find some sort of variation to add, but probably not. Talking about her experience at the fair, Jansen described it asamazing. It was a very fun timespent with close friends whoshare my same interest, sci ence! she says. Her excitement for the sub ject stems from her days atNorth Wauchula Elementary.Former assistant principal DaleWolgast had partnered with Mo saic, which then sent engineersto judge the students science fairprojects. Jansen, who started compet ing in science fairs in thirdgrade, said the engineers wouldask questions to see how wellthe kids knew their own proj ects. I am sure that the practice gained at those fairs made a dif ference for me this year. Four ofthe eight state attendees this yearfrom Hardee attended NWEduring elementary school, shesaid. The four other students par ticipating in the junior divisionalso received some sort ofrecognition. Dylan Davis received fourth place in chemistry for his proj ect, Does cow manure, banana peels, and carrot shavings affectthe production of methane gas? Krupa Ahir received an hon orable mention in botany for herproject, Which chemical affectsthe height of a Helianthus an nuus the most, ammonium ni trate, potassium, orphosphorus? Helianthus an nuus is the scientific name forsunflower. Joseph Wood received $25 in the engineering division fromthe Hernando Regional Science& Engineering Fair. His projectwas Does the brand of the base ball bat affect how far the base ball is hit? Zackary Durastanti received $25 in the environmental sci ences division from the MartinCounty Regional Science & En gineering Fair. His project wasDoes depth in soil affect the de composition rate of biomass? Three students from Hardee Senior High also competed atthe state fair. Meagan Shivers earned third place in the senior division ofenvironmental sciences. Herproject was entitled, The cen trifugal removal of oil: Year 3. Emelie Wolgast received $25 from the Capital Regional Sci ence & Engineering Fair and aSony FM/AM clock radio dreammachine from the Thom-as AlvaEdison Regional Sci-ence & En gineering Fair. Her project wasThe mathematical analysis of Mozart: Year 2. Rebecca Espinoza competed at the fair with her project,Does gender affect patternrecognition time? Not only were their projects well-received, the studentsgood conduct was somethingseveral people talked about. Co-directors of the Heartland Re gional Science & Engineer-ingFair Dan Thomas and CynthiaLetcher both commented on how well-behaved the studentswere. I had the opportunity to watch them as they were beinginterviewed by the judges, andthe poise with which they dealtwith the situation was somethingto be admired, said Thomas. Hethen went on to say, I am per sonally excited to know that thefuture of the HRSEF, if Ms.Walker is any indication, is out standing. Students Take Honors At State Science Fair Jansen Walkers Does the length of time off of the treeaffect the sugar content (brix) of citrus sinensis? wonseveral awards. She won first place in the botany sectionand was one of four Grand Award winners in the juniorprojects. 5:8c The Herald-Advocate will soon be publishing our Annual Graduation Keepsake Edition honoring all Hardee High School graduating seniors.

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A The SqueezinsBy Barbara CarltonPeace River Valley Citrus Growers LEADERSHIP COMES IN MANY FORMS As the Florida citrus industry navigates its way through the dev astating disease of Greening, it brings new opportunities for industry leadership in many forms. All growers should be engaged and passionate about the roles they can play to move the industry past these times of reduced crops and difficult production decisions. I am con fident the Florida citrus industry will find its way past Greening, just as it has so many times before. This will be the last Squeezins article of my citrus career, as I begin the retirement phase of my life May 30. I am thrilled to report a Hardee County native, LeAnna Himrod, has been chosen as Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Associations new executive director. She will begin May 19, training with me for two weeks prior to my departure. Himrod graduated cum laude from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Science in political science. She is continuing her education through the distance learning program and will grad uate in December 2014 with a Master of Science in agricultural ed ucation and communication. Himrod has honed her education with experience at the Morrell, Watson & Southwell law firm in Wauchula, at the Alachua County Clerk of Courts Office, with state Rep. Ben Albritton in his district and Tallahassee offices and at her familys business, Himrod Citrus Nursery. Himrod earned the position with an energy-filled interview in front of PRVCGAs Search Committee, where she outlined her ideas for increasing membership and organizing association fund raising activities. She is also looking forward to getting involved with the industry issues needing attention. Working jointly with the new committee structure of the association, the association leadership is expecting great things from their new executive director. Yet, it isnt just the young in age that can take on leadership roles in our industry. It is also the young in spirit. Dr. Barbara Carlton recently contacted our association con cerned about the status of the Florida citrus industry. She wanted to help in some way. Dr. Carlton was passionate about the possibility of antimicrobials in dealing with Greening. She encouraged swift action and the result was formation of a task force to bring the industry together in a unified position. As a result, PRVCGA and the Indian River Citrus League have jointly contacted the other industry associations asking for their sup port in encouraging our research community to complete the neces sary work to answer the many questions related to antimicrobials. The documentation must be done to move these new crop products into the regulatory process and hopefully to commercial production. The Florida Department of Agriculture is also showing support for the industry and extraordinary leadership by using its resources to research the disease in the Winter Haven Arboretum grove. The Arboretum is the historical source of the industrys budwood. The grove is no longer used because of the importance of protecting the industrys budwood source. Now, all budwood for citrus nurseries comes from a state of the art facility in Chiefland, outside of the industry and far away from citrus pests and diseases. Because of this unique collection of cit rus historical value and because its fruit is not utilized, it is an ex cellent spot to conduct such and experiment for all varieties of citrus. PRVCGAs next Grower Roundtable Luncheon will be pro vided by UBS Group/Thornhill Financial today (Thursday) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It will be held at the Turner Center Exhibit Hall, 2250 N.E. Roan St., in Arcadia. The topic is Tax Implications from Obama Care for Growers. Conley Thornill of UBS Finan cial/Thornhill Group as well as Steve Hamic and Erica Scheipsmeier of Hamic, Jones, Hamic & Sturwold will be the keynote speakers. Drastic changes to the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 and the Affordable Health Care Act have created confusion for agri cultural employers. This meeting will help growers understand the requirements for full-time and part-time employees. It will also delve into the tax consequences and how growers should prepare for this new federal legislation. Growers are urged to send staff involved in tax preparation and/or financials. Lunch will be provided at no cost by UBS Fi nancial/Thornhill Group. The next USDA crop estimate update will be Friday at noon. The effects of Greening have continued to impact the industry with steady reductions in the size of the estimated crop since its an nouncement in November. On a personal note it has been my pleasure to serve Hardee County citrus growers for the past 20 years as the executive director. PRVCGA is an awesome organization with a unique member ship comprised of small family growers. The diversity of the group gives it a unique strength found in no other citrus organizations, and unique needs addressed by no other organization. This commonal ity makes us a close-knit group of friends and family. I will miss the friendship you have bestowed upon me and will treasure the time spent with all my Hardee friends. Thank you for including me in your community and in your lives. 1.

6A The Herald-Advocate, May 8, 2014 JUST AROUND THE CORNER It is nearly upon us, hurricane season. That time of year when we hear the reports and predictions of the severity of the hurricaneseason, the seminars, symposiums, planning meetings and the listgoes on. It may appear that this all may be overdone, however it is of a great necessity that we enter into this time of year with the mindsetthat it could happen here because it already has and it couldhappen again. So as we approach the hurricane season, we can begin to be prepared for that possibility, planning for the worst and praying forthe best while ensuring we have the necessary water, non-perishablefood items, fuel for the generator, full tanks of fuel in our vehicles,First Aid kit in the home and vehicles, a bug-out-bag with clothesand hygiene items in the event of evacuation. These are only a few of the items we should address, as we also need to ensure our homes are protected from flying debris as bestas possible. Please make certain that you have a good plan of action in place, ready to put it into play if necessary. Within Hardee County Fire-Rescue, we are preparing as well. We will ensure that we have the necessary means to effectively, ef ficiently and professionally provide the necessary level of care foryou, the citizens and visitors of Hardee County. We are genuinely concerned for your safety and we are thankful that we have the privilege to serve you, and provide consistent pro fessional service to Hardee County.

Icalled the local shelter, andthey said they aren't acceptingvolunteers right now. Whynot? I thought shelters weredesperate for help. Where elsecan I look? Tanya J., via email DEAR TANYA: While some shelters accept any help that isoffered, many have implementedmore controlled volunteer pro grams. This allows them to havea better handle on which volun teers are available at certaintimes, who has more experienceworking with animals and whohas less, and so on. A better question to ask your local shelter is whether it has anyvolunteer programs available,now or in the near future, or anyother opportunities to help. Ifnot, you can ask if it is affiliatedwith a larger organization, suchas the ASPCA, and find a contactthere who has information about volunteer opportunities. Many shelters offer fundrais ing events that are more fun andless work. If you're not able togive money to the cause, youcould offer to help at theseevents. Or, you can participate incharity walks either by your self or by rounding up a group offriends and raise money thatway. Check your local newspaper for event listings and news fromthe local shelter. Many newspa pers have an online component,and could have a lot more infor mation on their website in a sec tion reserved for the localshelters. Visit the veterinarian and look for a bulletin board in the waitingroom. If there is one, there likelyare notices posted about eventsand volunteer opportunities. Oryou can talk to the vet or an as sistant during your pet's checkupabout your interest in volunteer ing somewhere, somehow.Send your questions or com ments to firstname.lastname@example.org.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, May 8, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate The weather and the Cape Coral Seahawks double-teamedthe Hardee Wildcats in a rain-soaked regional quarterfinalgame last Wednesday night. The Cats were not able to overcome the duo and lost 5-0 ineight innings, leaving 11 seniorsdisappointed at what turned outto be their final high schoolgame. The Wildcats came in with high hopes, with a 22-4 (5-1)record, the best since 1991, thelast time Hardee had a districtchampionship. Hardee hoped tokeep its bats working and out maneuver its opponents to con tinue in the regional playoffs. The Seahawks were stateranked all season and came inwith a 20-5 (10-0 district) recordas top seed in District 12, but be came district runner-up when in explicably upended by arch rivalCape Coral Mariner in the dis trict championship game. But just as the game was about to get under way, raincame pouring in from all sides.Players and coaches rushed outand covered the mound andhome plate with tarps. Within ahalf hour, the field was inun dated, with the bases almostfloating among the water. When it finally stopped, Coach Mike Gorton and theSeahawks were willing to waitwhile the field was repaired.There was too much difficultygetting officials rescheduled andcoming back for another game,they said. So, Hardee coaches went to work with post-hole diggers, apump and piping to clear the lakes around the bases. Fans hadbeen told they could literallyhave rain checks for a re-sched uled game, when it was decidedthis game would begin againabout 9 p.m. It was a dual of upperclass men. Cape Coral had 10 seniors,eight juniors, a sophomore and afreshman on its roster, whileHardee countered with the 11seniors, two juniors, three sophsand a freshman. Hardee coaches had spent a lot of time and attention on get ting ready for the game. It was apretty even affair for seven in nings, but Cape Corals experi ence came to the fore in theeighth for the win shortly be-fore midnight. Wildcat Cody Spencer and Seahawk Luke Spengler dueledfor seven innings. An error, sin gle, walk and fielders choiceleft a trio of Seahawks strandedin the top of the first. Hardeebatters went down on a strike out, groundout and fly-out. Inning two saw a walk, wild pitch and attempted steal cutdown by Wildcat catcher Kram-er Royal start the second inning.A groundout and strikeout fin ished Cape Coral in its secondat-bat. After two strikeouts,Wildcat David Chevy Dol-cater worked a 3-2 count for awalk and Tyler Hewett singledto right field, before anotherstrikeout stopped Hardee. Each squad left a runner stranded in the third inning andeach was three up, three down inthe fourth. In the top of the fifth, Span gler singled, but Royal quicklycaught him off base for the thirdout of the inning. Hewett singled up the middle and was left onsecond. On to sixth, where a Wildcat 4-6-3 double play eliminated theSeahawk threat. Hardee leftSpencer aboard. He and HaydenLindsey both singled, but a dou ble-play shut that down. In the top of the seventh, a hit batsman, singled and sacrificehad Cape Coral runners on sec ond and third when the next twoouts left them there. With a newSeahawk pitcher, Hardee batterswent down in order. The top of the eighth made the difference. A combination offour hits, a pair of walks and anerror combined to give CapeCoral an unsurmountable 5-0lead. Jake Bolin singled to left to start the home half of the eighth.Successive sacrifices by KrisJohnson and Royal got Bolin tothird, but he was left there whenthe last out occurred and endedHardee hopes of continuing onin the playoffs. Johnson, who finished the season 9-0 as a pitcher, includ ing the district championshipwin over Lemon Bay, also wasnamed the area Florida AthleticCoaches Association player ofthe year. Classmates Royal, Bolin, Dol cater, Hewett, Dustin Goodwyn,Garrett Albritton, Luke Winter,Luke Palmer, Wyatt Maddoxand Armondo Alamia call anend to their Wildcat baseballdays. Expected back next season are juniors Tanor Durden and DevinPearson, sophs Spencer, SethMcGee and Adam Salas andfreshman Lindsey.

Est. 1956 5:8c By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate When faced with the decision of what is a fertilizer plant, theHardee County Commissiontabled the decision to get moreinformation. Kevin Denny, director of planning & development, askedthe commission to interpret theUnified Land DevelopmentCode (ULDC) and define whatis and is not a fertilizer plant. It has become an issue because Florikan needs to get au thorization to operate itsproposed facility at the HardeeCounty Commerce Park, off SR62 about one mile from the U.S.17 intersection. Denny said his research indi cates that a fertilizer plant, suchas Florida Fertilizer off WillDuke Road, is an industrialcomplex that creates base fertil izer, producing componentssuch as nitrogen-based fertilizerusing anhydrous ammoniathrough a complex chemicalprocess and high amounts of en ergy, typically natural gas, tocreate its end products. Reportedly there was a fire caused by spontaneous combus tion of sludge from ammonia ni trate which burned the plant,which had to be rebuilt. KeyPlex, already in the Commerce Park, and the planned Florikan unit, simply takes thefinished fertilizer components,blends them and coats them withsome type of polymer for retailsale. It ends up being 42 percentnitrogen and 38 percent poly mer. Normally, the blended plant does not provide the same haz ards as a plant creating fertilizer,said Denny. He asked the commission to decide if the UDLC should clar ify the difference between ablending plant and a fertilizerplant. Commissioner Colon Lambert asked if the ULDC couldoffer different language basedon the volatility of the fertilizerand blending plants. He notedthat Hardee County is an agri cultural community and blend ing fertilizer is a way to stop thenutrient runoff. Commissioner Grady Johnson said it could depend on howmany tons are stored at one timeand it would be vitally importantto recognize and err on the sideof caution of human health, lifeand safety, especially because ofthe nearby homes and school. Commissioner Rick Knight noted that retail stores such asWal-Mart store fertilizer prod ucts without a hazard. WouldKeyPlex and Florikan be muchdifferent? Commissioner Mike Thompson said he would have a prob lem calling either KeyPlex orFlorikan a fertilizer plant butwould like to take time to visitthe current Florikan unit. County attorney Ken Evers said it was important to make atimely decision because Flo-rikan needed to know what kingof application to make, a site de velopment plan or a Major Spe cial Exception, to operate itsproposed unit in the Com-mercePark. Johnson asked for an opinion from John Roy Gough, a formercommissioner and grower. Hesaid he had no problem with es tablishing either KeyPlex orFlorikan as a feed/seed fertilizerplant and not cut the fine hairs.However, he felt it would be bet ter to have such places in an in dustrial park in a remote area inthe western end of the county onreclaimed phosphate land andnot close to a residential area orschool. Commissioners decided to wait a couple of weeks to givethem more time for get more in formation and visit fertilizerplants and blending sites beforemaking a decision. Tentatively,it will come back before thecommission at its May 15 meet ing. Is It A Fertilizer Plant?

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3B Chapter FL2-H of the Gold Wing Road Riders Associationis doing its part to promote Mayas National Motorcycle SafetyAwareness Month. The chapter reminds motorists to Double-Check LookTwice and Save a Life. Motorcycles have smaller profiles than other vehicles,making it more difficult to judgethe distance and speed of oneapproaching. Statistics have shown that ap proximately 75 percent of mo torcycle accidents involve an other vehicle, with two-thirds ofthose being caused by a motoristwho failed to yield the right ofway to the motorcyclist. Theseaccidents most likely occur atintersections involving motoristsmaking left-hand turns. Only by actively looking for motorcycles can motorists in crease their awareness of themand make the highways safer.

4B The Herald-Advocate, May 8, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate The Hardee Junior Varsity Lady Wildcats brought their sea son to a close last month with avictory. The 12-4 win over Manatee made the girls final record 9-4. Coach Melanie Henderson was proud of the junior LadyCats in their sporadic season,which included only about halfas many games as the varsity.Not all opposing teams haveboth a JV and varsity squad, sosometimes the Hardee JV didnot have an opponent. Thats what happened in the final week of the regular season.After a 9-6 win at DeSoto onApril 3, the girls did not play onApril 4, when Lakeland came tocall, as its JV doesnt travel.They played and won at Mana tee, but games at McKeel andPalmetto did not include JV ac tivities. In its final game at Manatee, Hardee bounded out of the open ing gate, sending a dozen batters to the plate in the first inningand bringing seven of themhome. Coming around to cross home plate were Jacqueline JackiMcGhee, Tiffany Flo-res, AlyssaTatum, Gabby Allen, Diana De-Santiago, Tara McNabb and AnaErekson. Manatee came back with three runs in the home half of the firstinning and added one more inthe second frame. Meanwhile, Hardee had a run in the second by Kourtney Hen derson, and four in the third, byErekson, Flores, Tatum andHenderson, aided by hits byAllen and Shayna Harned. All in all, the Hardee JV did well this season. Returningsophs Henderson, McGhee, Al-len, Flores, DeSantigo, Erek-son, Tatum and Mara Goodwynanchored the team, which alsoincluded freshmen, Tara Mc-Nabb, Arianna Ramos, VanessaOrtiz, Michaela Villarreal, JuliaFigueroa and Harned.

Pulling in data from a previousreport, Centenarians 2010, thisresearch is an overview of 2007to 2011 and focuses on maritalstatus, education, veteran status,income and poverty levels.Here's what it learned: Women made up the major ity of those who had lived a cen tury or more, at 81 percent. Inthe over-65 group, women wereat 57 percent. Marital status: Most cente narians (82 percent) were wid owed. Because of age, theover-65 group had a lower rateof 29 percent widowed. Education: A surprising 43 percent of centenarians did notfinish high school. In the over 65age group, 23 percent didn't re ceive a diploma. Of those whowent on to college, 15 percent ofcentenarians earned a bachelor'sdegree or higher, with 21 per cent of the over-65 group earn ing a degree. Veterans: Only 0.5 percent of women centenarians were veterans, but the number wasn'tmuch higher for women in theover-65 group, with 1.15 percentveterans. Income: Of the centenari ans, 83 percent received SocialSecurity, compared to 88 per cent of the over-65 group. Theamount of benefits was lower, ofcourse, for the centenarians be cause Social Security is basedon what you put into the system.Of the centenarians, 17 percentlived in poverty, compared to 9percent of the over-65 group. Want to live to be a centenar ian? Dr. Thomas Perls, co-au thor of "Living to 100: Lessonsin Living to Your Maximum Po tential at Any Age," has sometips: Be adaptable and flexible.Get rid of stress. Be optimistic.Exercise. Own a pet.

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B WAUCHULA STBM Good News! What Torah (Gods teaching and instruction) means to me. Testimony by Virginia Belcher, Wauchula,attending ICTS classes. In the years 2012 and 2013 I felt like my life was a runaway train waiting to derail. Then I was introduced toTorah. What a change in my life. I am spiritually,physically, mentally and emotionally healed. If you feel you have no where to turn, seek out Torah (Gods teaching and instruction). The joy of the Lord(YHVH) is my strength (Nehemiah 8:10) God is with u s always (Matthew 28:20) Let your hope in YeshuaHaMashiach (Jesus Christ) and not the hurts of the worlddirect your path. Thought: The word of God is about a King and his Kingdom, a King who set up His government on earth.Torah is Genesis through Deuteronomy and in it contains613 principles, statues, ordinances and commands. Thekeys are the principles He told us to do and not to doresulting in blessings and curses.

Another week has passed swiftly and become apart of history. Before this onegets away, let me bring you upto date. Last week on Thursday, the clergy and laity of HardeeCounty joined together at Her itage Park to celebrate Amer icas National Day of Prayer,just as other communities acrossthe country did the same. Forlocal Christians, it truly was aday of celebration as well as atime of prayer, as many whohave had long-time friendshipsbut had not seen each other forsome time were able to fellow ship with each other. Last weekend the newly formed Thespian Society ofHardee Senior High School per formed the musical Fiddler onthe Roof. These young actorsput in much time and labor tobring this well-known play tous. Congratulations, and wellbe looking forward to whatsnext! Tonight (Thursday), the audi torium at Hardee Senior HighSchool will ring with the soundsof music as David Radfordschoir and vocalists present theirannual spring concert. New Hope Baptist Church honored its seniors on Sunday with a luncheon and light enter tainment. Debbie Wheeler andher crew of helpers did a superjob in both areas. The food wasdelicious and the entertainmentwas somewhat overly hilarious.Thanks to all who made it a spe cial day! On our prayer list are many standing in the need of prayer.Among them are Byron Allison,who is hospitalized at Bay Pinesin St. Petersburg, and TonySpoon, who is at home in FortMeade. Both men are sufferingfrom the debilitating effects ofcancer. Also on the prayer list is Dewey Bennett Jr. I hope by thetime he reads this he is at homerecuperating. It was good to seeJackie Barker at church this pastSunday. She was home previ ously due to an eye infectionthat has abated. Happy birthday to Brian Crews, Lucretia Quionnes,Pauline Hendrikson and WallyR. Helms! One other item almost es caped me. Dont forget Mis-sions on Main in downtownWauchula this Friday. O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall show forthThy praise, Psalm 51:15. Until next time, God bless! Herger Williams Post No. 2 of the American Legion is located at 117 W.

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!The rain was wonderful even though we only received 8/10sof an inch on Friday and 9/10son Saturday. We did not receiveenough to register in the raingauge Wednesday, but my sister-in-law said she received threeinches in Wauchula! I am thank ful we didnt receive over 20inches like Pensacola did. One family that knows how to have a reunion is the Moye Fam ily. Saturday morning familiesgathered at Ronnie and AliceFaye Moyes from far and near.Some relatives came from Wis consin, Michigan, Tennes-see,Jacksonville and, of course,plenty of towns down in CentralFlorida. One arrived in a motorhome. Sherman said he saw cousins he had not seen in over 20 years,and it was great. One of the rel atives was 94, and he was thefirst person in the United Statesto join the Army after Pearl Har bor was bombed. He said it tookabout a week to completely join,as the Army checked you out be cause it was afraid you were aJapanese sympathizer. He waspresented a plaque, and his capbore testimony of his action. He told me he was in Okinawa, and that is where mydaddy went when he wasshipped overseas. I felt it anhonor to talk to him. When people began to leave, Mark Moye called several of thefamily together for a little meet ing, planning next year, etc.One lady I did not know butthought she looked familiar wasGranny Shackelfords grand daughter. Family is very impor tant, and anyone who has familyleft should have a re-union. I nolonger have any aunts or unclesand not very many first cousins. Fort Green Baptist Church had homecoming last Sunday. As always, there are plenty whocome that this is the only timeyou see them: June Roberts,Eloise Skipper, and Mrs. Tom linson who had her grandsonwith her. The music was greatand the choir and individualssang quite a few specials. Den nis Sasser was the preacher forthe day and did a good job. After dinner it was very spe cial, as some of the young peo ple got busy cleaning up. KasiePowell was washing dishes andK-Lynn Simpson was drying.Kaitlyn and Ken Oden werebusy as were Brianna and BrodyWaters. Makayla Chan-cey andChristian Martinez were busy. That was a great sight and re ally impressed me. Of coursethere were some of the youngeradults working, but several of usolder folks were so im-pressedwe just talked about it and feltwe needed to head home for anap! Evenly Patten used to live in Fort Green and was scheduledfor heart surgery on May 5. Mil lie Revell could not attend thehomecoming because she wassick with the stomach virus.Byron Allison is in the VA Hos pital and was expecting treat ment to begin May 5. The lastreport I had Christine Murdockwas back in the hospital. HarrietHendry is in Hardee Manor.John Hall is under the weather.Betty Waters, Gary Oden andPat Albritton need prayer. Pleasepray for these. My brother-in-law said there were more sick people in FortGreen than anywhere, but of theones above only two actuallylive in Fort Green! Our churchconsiders ourselves a prayingchurch, and that is why we prayand request you to pray for thesick. Congratulations to Amanda and Guy Carlton on the birth of their beautiful daughter, An-nabelle. Amanda was the firstfemale in her family for quite anumber of years and now thereis another one! Visiting Fort Green for home coming were Ryan and AmandaAbbott and their daughter, Lyla,and new son, Levi. Kaiden Brinson attended his first church service and he is theson of Kara Spencer and An-tonio Brinson. It is great to haveall these new babies.

10B The Herald-Advocate, May 8, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-AdvocateThis was a standout season for our program. First-year Head Coach Caitlyn Bliss was upbeat Tuesday morning as her team ended the 16-4-1 season in a 6-0 loss in the Class 5A Region 3 final. The girls had been to Bradenton in a rainout Friday night and had to return Monday evening to play the game, hop ing to advance to the state finals in Vero Beach this weekend. It was not to be, as Bradenton Bayshore prevailed and will face Belleview in the state semi-final on Friday, while Pointe Vedra will go against Plantation Amer ican Heritage. The winners will play for the state championship on Sat-urday. Meanwhile, for Hardee, Bliss is excited about the future. We started the season strong and continued to grow together and really become a team. To our seniors (Karlee Henderson, Addison Aubry and Arissa Camel), we are sad to see them go, but they will forever be re membered as the class that made history to be the first-ever softball team in school history to win a district title and be a re gion finalist, said the coach. I told the returning players last night to remember this day because we will be back here next year! Softball in Hardee County is up and coming and we will be getting a dozen or so incoming freshmen next year and Im truly looking forward to see ing this program grow and succeed into a dominant sport, Bliss continued. This season was just a pre view as to what is to be expected over the next few years. We will be back with a vengeance next season! Our saying all season was WE CANT STOP AND WE WONT STOP!! Bliss may have the opportu nity to repeat, not only as district champions, but to go the dis tance. She returns juniors Makayla Dueberry, Kim Derringer, Kendall Gough, Caryssa Johnson and Alex Ullrich, a lefthanded pitcher with a bright fu ture. Joining them are underclass men Hannah Carlton, Jakaysha Lindsey, Senida Garcia and Sara Welch and most of the eight sophs on this years 9-4 junior varsity squad. Bayshore 6, Hardee 0 The Lady Bruin pitcher was on the money in facing the usually hitting machine of the Hardee Lady Wildcats, record ing 11 strikeouts against a team which rarely has one or two a game. A liner and pair of strikeouts retired Hardee in the top of the first. Bradenton did most of its damage with four runs in the home half of the inning on a lead-off triple and three other hits. A bunt out, groundout and pop-out finally retired Bayshore after eight batters came up and four runners had crossed the plate. With another three up, three down in the top of the second, Bayshore added one more score in the home half of the inning on a walk, stolen base and error. It was 5-0. That score stayed the same through three innings of pitching duel between Ullrich and Bradentons Schmoll. In the top of the sixth, Hardee had its most success of the day. Carlton started it with a hit to left field, advancing on an Aubry bunt and wild pitch to be left at third base. Henderson and Gough drew walks, leaving the bases jammed when the third out left them all stranded. Bradenton picked up its final run in the bottom of the sixth. It began with a walk, but that run ner was out 8-5 going to third on a single to right center.

While asparagus isavailable year-round, it's muchbetter when purchased locally.Asparagus is easy to select andprepare, and comes in a varietyof vibrant colors including green,violet, purple and white. It alsogrows wild and is commerciallyavailable fresh, frozen andcanned. The stalks range in sizefrom colossal to small. Varioustypes and colors of asparagus canbe used without a noticeable dif ference in taste, so mix andmatch colors and sizes for visualinterest. It tastes delicious hot orcold. Asparagus should be crisp and firm, not limp or wrinkled, withtightly closed tips. Dull colorsand ridges in the stems are an in dication of a lack of freshness.The stalks should not be limp ordry at the cut and of uniformthickness. If you're planning to use the asparagus on the same day, rinseit under cool water and pat thestalks dry with a paper towel.Smaller stalks can be broken orcut at the point where the stemnaturally snaps. Peeling the end KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis of thicker stalks with a paringknife or a vegetable peeler re moves any woody stems and canbe done up to 2 hours beforecooking. Place the prepared as paragus in a plastic bag in the re frigerator to stay crisp. Never wash or soak fresh as paragus before storing. If the as paragus is bound with a rubberband, remove it, as it will pinchand bruise the stalks. Asparaguscan be stored up to two days ifthe stalks are trimmed and placedupright in a jar with about aninch of water in the bottom.Cover the asparagus with a plas tic bag and store the spears in therefrigerator. It also freezes wellif blanched first in hot water. Asparagus is a nutritional powerhouse. One-half cup ofcooked asparagus contains sig nificant amounts of folic acid, vi tamin C, potassium andbeta-carotene. It's also a heart-healthy food, and a natural di uretic. This versatile vegetable works well as a room-temperature ap petizer, blended into a soup, as aflavorful side dish, the main in gredient in a colorful salad or aspart of a main course like myrecipe for Lemon Chicken withAsparagus.

Selected interviews are publishedhere as an encouragement to the stu-dents and for the enjoyment of our read-ers. Back Back In In Time TimeDEAR DR. ROACH: Two years ago, at age 90, my gyne cologist told me that I did notneed to see him anymore be cause of my age. When I men tioned this to my daughter, shebecame outraged, and saidthat I need to continue mymammograms and visits to thedoctor. What is your opinion? I.W. ANSWER: This is actually three questions in one, and noneof them is easy. How long do you"need" to continue Pap smearsand mammograms, and do youneed to keep seeing your gyne cologist? The Pap smear question actu ally is the easiest, since there isvery good evidence that awoman who has had normal Papsmears regularly until age 65 isvery unlikely to get cervical can cer. This does not apply to any one with a history of cancer. When to stop mammograms is controversial. I feel that they cancontinue in healthy women in definitely, but especially in thepresence of some other seriousdisease, a woman over 75 couldchoose to stop. I still recommend a regular visit with the gynecologist. Evenif a mammogram or Pap smearisn't being done, the gynecologistcan discuss other concerns anddo an exam. Questions about breast cancer and its treatment are found in thebooklet on that subject. To obtaina copy, write: Dr. Roach No.1101W, Box 536475, Orlando,FL 32853-6475.

ROACH: Our 48-year-old son has been diag nosed with pityriasis rubra pi laris. He is miserable with theburning, red rash and the lossof skin cells. He now has ex tremely swollen ankles andfeet. We know this is extremelyrare. Can you lend any insightinto treatment of symptoms? C.D. ANSWER: Pityriasis rubra pilaris (PRP) is a rare inflamma tory skin disease of unknowncause. Generalized redness,sometimes with islands of unaf fected skin, is common. Scalyplaques and raised red bumpsalso occur. There are several treatments that have been effective for somepeople, but nothing is effectivefor everybody. Vitamin A deriv atives are the usual firsttreatment, but more-powerfulmedicines often are needed. As isso often the case for rare dis eases, finding the most experi enced local expert (in this case, adermatologist) can lead to bettertreatment for your son. I found a support group at www.prp-support.org. DEAR DR. ROACH: Americans are infatuated withgrilling, barbecuing and char ring meat -all forms of high-temperature cooking. Isn'tcharred food carcinogenic,leading to stomach and coloncancers? S.B. ANSWER: Yes, charred meat is carcinogenic, at least accord ing to the preponderance of thedata. In fact, increased red meatof any kind probably increasesoverall cancer risk, but high-tem perature cooking creates severalkinds of toxic chemicals and in creases colon cancer risk specif ically. There is some evidencethat leaner cuts of red meat aren'tas dangerous, and also that mar inating, especially in wine, re duces the production of thedangerous chemicals. I recommend limiting con sumption of high-temperature-cooked red meats.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.

Andrews'book "Flowers in the Attic."Are there plans to turn anymore of the books in the seriesinto movies? Steff S., Orange Park, Fla. A: You're in luck, Steff. Life time has indeed filmed the sequelto "Flowers," which is called"Petals on the Wind." It is sched uled to premiere Monday, May26, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. If you aren'tfamiliar with the books, the filmbegins 10 years after the Dollan ganger siblings have escaped theattic where their mother, Corrine(Heather Graham), and grand mother Olivia (Ellen Burstyn)kept them locked away for morethan two years. "Petals on the Wind" continues to follow thetwisted plightof the family, adecade afterCathy (RoseMcIver),Christopher(Wyatt Nash)and Carrie(Bailey Bun tain) escaped from their grand parents' attic at Foxworth Hall.But as they attempt to move be yond their sordid past, they soondiscover that certain secrets can'tbe left behind. When Cathy finds herself in an abusive relationship with a fel low dancer, Julian (Will Kemp,"90210)", Christopher and Cathyare forced to face the forbiddenfeelings they developed for oneanother while coming of age dur ing captivity. But when tragedystrikes the Dollangangers onceagain, Cathy returns to FoxworthHall to confront her grandmotherand seek revenge on her motherwith a plan to seduce her hus band, Bart (Dylan Bruce). Q: I had heard awhile back that Robert De Niro was goingto star in an HBO drama se ries, but I haven't seen any thing about it since. Do youknow if that's still going tohappen? Donnie F., via email A: Well, it is ... and it isn't. The series is still happening, butRobert De Niro won't be in volved. "Criminal Justice," aseven-hour miniseries based onthe BBC's 2008 Peter Moffatdrama of the same name, wassupposed to star James Gan dolfini. When James passedaway last June (after alreadyhaving filmed the pilot), De Nirowas tapped to star in his place.However, he had to pull out due to a scheduling conflict, so JohnTurturro has stepped in to playthe lead, Jack Stone, an un scrupulous New York Citylawyer who defends a Pakistaniman (Riz Ahmed) accused ofmurder. Q: You had mentioned awhile back that "Mistresses"would be returning to TV thissummer. I've been looking fora premiere date, but can't findout when it'll be back. Can youhelp? Holly T. in West Virginia A: "Mistresses" which stars Alyssa Milano, RochelleAytes, Jes Macallan and YunjinKim will return to ABC onJune 2 at 10/9c with a 13-episodesecond season. Based on theU.K. hit series of the same name,"Mistresses" is a provocativedrama about the scandalous livesof a group of four friends, eachon her own path of self-discov ery.

BARKER, Deputy Clerk Tax Deed File No.: 252013TD070XXXX Pursuant to F.S. 197.5124:24-5:15c rectchevy.comLLOYDHALL 5:8c NOTICEThe Hardee County Board of County Commissioners are accepting applications for persons interested in serving on the Industrial Development Authority/Economic Develop ment Council. Applications are available on the countys website www.hardeecounty.net or at the County Managers Office, 412 West Orange Street, Room 103, Wauchula, Florida. For more information, please call 863/773-9430. Rick Knight, Chairman 5:8cQ: My apartment has closet doors that fold open on sliding tracks. Over the past month, the doors have started sticking and one is completely off the track and just swinging open. Is this hard to fix? Our maintenance guys aren't so reliable. Mindy H., Atlanta A: If the slider attachment at the top of the door isn't damaged, you should be able to easily put the bifold door back on its track. Reach up to the top of the de tached door or climb onto a sturdy stepladder or footstool so you can reach and feel along the top near the front edge of the door. You should feel a round disc, or wheel, sticking up. Place your finger on top of the wheel and push down. If it's spring-loaded, the disc will de press down and then spring back up. Check the bottom of the door as well. If the door opens along a top and bottom track, a similar wheel, or a simple metal pin called a pivot, will be located in the same position near the front of the door. It may or may not have a spring. If both wheels are in good shape, great. If either one is bro ken or missing, contact apart ment maintenance to have them repair the door. Or, if they don't respond, contact management and ask if they can either speed up the repair, or if you can do the repair yourself and have them take the difference off the bill (you'll need to give them a re ceipt for parts and labor). Let's start from the premise that both wheels are all right. It's a pretty easy fix, made easier if a friend helps steady the door. If one of the wheels isn't springloaded, carefully ease that rigid wheel into the corresponding track. Then reach up (or down) to the spring-loaded disc, depress it with one finger, and guide that part of the door back into its cor responding track, sliding your finger out of the way until the disc pops up into the track. Move the door back and forth a couple times to test it. What if the door doesn't seem be straight? That can cause the wheels to stick in or jump out of the tracks. You can adjust the door in a number of ways: The Family Handyman website (www.familyhandyman.com) has a step-by-step description of how to do it. HOME TIP: To smooth a sliding door's path, put a thin coat of wax or silicone spray on the wheels. Send your questions or home tips to email@example.com.

May 8, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5C Dear Editor After attending the April 24 Commissioner IDA Rezoning meeting with my husband, Hank Kuhlman, I feel compelled to share my views. I am not an accomplished speaker and have watched this industrial rezoning charade silently. However, Mr. Bill Lambert said he was speaking for the majority of the people. He clearly was not. The people affected by this were not at the meeting, and the majority that were there were not for it. As way of background, I will tell you why we moved here almost 5 years ago ranches, or ange groves, the Peace River, Payne Creek, bone valley, abun dant wildlife and scenic, rural beauty. We were sold. What a great place to retire, raise a few animals, enjoy our golden years with our children and grandchil dren. Little did we know. When Fort Green was slapped with a mining overlay, we asked why and were told because we can. The mining companies are very powerful, and they do whatever they want here. Next we hear of a gar-bage dump pro posed for the Sweetwater Community. The citizens fought back and beat it. Then we hear that the County wants to put a regional garbage dump in Fort Green! When asking the county manager about this, he said he had no problems running 600 truckloads of garbage per day through Fort Green. He said we would get used to it and hardly notice because they covered the pit every night. Fort Green united, and stopped it. Next we hear about a Waste Generated Products company (more garbage, thank you) bringing garbage to our County on trains! Next, we hear about a liqui fied natural gas refinery coming next door. Then Bio-Diesel in Ona? Then a $7.25 million cash award to a three-day old LifeSync company. The money is gone and where are the jobs? Now the latest debacle, moving a third fertilizer plant into the Commerce Park. What are these public officials thinking? Give away free buildings and cash for what? Questionable industries next to a school and homes? This county gets ten million dollars in cash each year to at tract good businesses, and all they can think of is garbage, garbage and more toxic, noxious polluters next to living, breathing communities, surrounded by houses and a school. Every week, you hear about another fertilizer, chemical or natural gas explosion or spill. Did you hear about evacuating Opal, Wyoming, on April 24 natural gas explosion? One year ago, a fertilizer storage facility blew up West Texas (15 killed, 226 injured). You can talk about safety and vegetative buffers all day long, but accidents happen where they can happen. Want to take a chance with your kids and grandkids? Allowing the possi bility of heavy industries near children is not a risk I accept. In Hardee County the only buffer between any industry going next to any citizen is three yes votes out of five Commis sioners. It is that simple. Three yes votes. Questioning citizens have been accused of not wanting economic development. Not true. We and others fight corrup tion in Hardee County because we do want good jobs and equal opportunity for all citizens, not just the insiders who control the County. All that we wanted was to retire in peace and quiet in a beau tiful, rural setting. Nothing more, nothing less. This will not happen if corrupt public officials squander opportunities for real development, i.e., businesses that do not stink, blow up, or keep the wage rates in the gutter. We used to ask, why arent the citizens of Hardee County standing up to these officials and demanding answers. We now know most people of Hardee County are afraid of retribution. If some raise their hand, they could lose their coveted jobs in the local government (ever heard of being fired for breaking a loyalty oath in Hardee County?). Others could be shunned in their church and ostracized from their community. They could lose their job at the mining com pany. Owners of small busi nesses could be blackballed and lose their business. They may even lose their homes. One busi nessman told us he dared not speak up for fear of his property being set on fire. Power and money is behind county corruption. Strong motivators for stomping out malcontents. How sad. What has happened to honest, open and transparent govern ment in Hardee County? Most public officials sit on their pul pits, meeting after meeting in dead silence. They refuse to answer questions and letters. They glare at the audience, daring them to challenge their author ity. Citizens endure contempt and disrespect. They are told to shut up and sit down. Fear of retaliation is too great for the av erage citizen. Since moving here, many of these good citizens tell us this corruption has been going on for many years. They are sick of it, but understandably are afraid to speak up. They want my hus band to speak for them. The situation is not fair, ethical or moral. Some of it is possibly criminal. This cannot go on much longer. These officials are destroying this county. While the county sinks further, they grab what they can for their friends and relatives with public money. Power, greed and public money. Good honest citizens do not get equal opportunities (without compromising their morals). This is all new to us. We were lucky to come here without kowtowing to any county corruption. This situation can only be fixed by the citizens, not public officials. They want business as usual public money in their pockets. Id like to suggest that all citizens, young or old, black, white and Hispanic attend these meetings. Show them that you want good clean high paying jobs. I know it is as difficult for you to find your voice, as it is for me. However, your very survival and future of our county depends on each of us. The corrupt cronies are destroying our County while surrounding counties are bringing in excellent, reputable and profitable companies. Please come to the IDA, EDA and BOCC meetings. Most impor tantly, speak up for truth, hon esty and integrity. Volunteer for the IDA and EDA Boards. Vote in November. Most of these commissioners must go!
