It will be put into action for the first time Thursday night. Everyone must walk through the detector each time they enter the room. If metal is detected, a deputy with a handheld wand will further search the individual. The Hardee County Sheriffs Office will provide a deputy to staff the station in addition to a deputy inside the meeting room. The Sheriffs Office is advising citizens to leave guns, knives, scissors or any other potential weapon at home before attending a meeting. Citizens will also be asked to empty their pockets before going through the detector and any bags, such as a purse, will be subject to search upon entering. SECURITY CHECK Kylen Ma cias By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate A company that has received more than $7 million in local economic development funds since 2011 and has requested $2 million more is currently under investigation. Industrial Development Authority Executive Director Bill L ambert acknowledged the issues regarding Continuum Labs during the boards regular meeting Tuesday morning. Future plans for the company are now on hold. Lambert said the project is basically on hold because of various audits and investiga t ions with the project. He did not elaborate further, and none of the 10 IDA mem bers present at the meeting asked for additional informa tion. When approached after the meeting, Lambert said he had no further comments. Re presentatives from the State Attorneys Office, includ ing State Attorney Jerry Hill, attended the meeting. Representatives from the office were also in attendance at the County Commission meet ing on May 1 in which then-IDA member Horst Witschonke was e xpelled from the board. Assistant State Attorney Brian Haas on Tuesday after noon acknowledged an investi gation is underway after a few questions have been raised, but said he could not elaborate further at this time. He said it was a very fo c used investigation, and that he hopes to have it resolved soon. Continuum Labs CEO Travis Bond was contacted by The Her ald-Advocate for comment Tuesday afternoon but did not See IDA 2A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate A 42-year-old Wauchula man has been accused of viciously assaulting the 22-year-old woman he said he loved. Lt. Matthew Whatley of the Wauchula Police Department ar rested the alleged assailant in the attack on Wednesday of last week. Pablo Macias was charged with domestic battery by stran gulation, sexual battery with threats of force and kidnapping. The first offense is a third-de gree felony while the two latter counts are first-degree felonies. If convicted as charged, Ma cias would face a maximum penalty of life in prison. He currently is being held in the Hardee County Jail, records there show. His bond, to gain his release pending trial, has been set at $31,000. According to Whatley, Macias and his alleged victim are boyfriend and girlfriend. The alleged attack occurred on Monday of last week, and was reported on Tuesday, the l ieutenant said. The 22-year-old said she and Macias were engaged in a verbal argument, during which Macias accused her of sleeping with another man. Though she denied his claims, Macias reportedly removed his belt, placed it around her neck and began choking her while de manding she admit to sleeping with the other man. See ASSAULT 2A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate A young mans fight with cancer has inspired others to help him through this tough journey. Kylen Chancey, 25, was diag nosed with oligodendroglioma, a slow-growing ma-lignant brain tumor, on March 11. Kylen says the highest grade for this particular tumor is four; he is at grade two. The Wauchula Moose Lodge is already set to hold a benefit for Kylen at the end of this month to help cover the cost of the many cancer treatments he must have. Kylen has suffered from headaches and migraines since he was a child, but in November he knew something wasnt quite right when they started getting much worse. He decided to go to Florida Hospital Wauchula to get a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test. The next day he went to see his doctor, who broke the news that it looked like Kylen had brain cancer. Kylen says he took the news very hard. His doctor referred him to a neurosurgeon in Lakeland, who wanted to get a biopsy of the tumor to see exactly what type of cancer it was and to try and figure out how to fight it. Kylen spent 31 hours in the hospital after the biopsy and then had to wait two weeks for the final res ults, which confirmed the bad news that his tumor was malignant. Since his diagnosis is so re cent, Kylen has not had any treatments yet. However he has seen doctors at Shands Hospital in Gainesville to talk about his diagnosis. Kylen will meet with his doctor again on June 5 to fur ther discuss his treatment op tions and see what will be most effective in fighting off the cancer. Another possibility Kylen is considering is going to the Cancer Treatment Center of America in Atlanta. He says it is known for being the best place to go for treatment, although it See BRAIN CANCER 2A By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate A 19-year-old Hardee County man was killed and two others seriously injured in a single-vehicle crash early Tuesday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol has confirmed. Tyshon Hillard, of Wauchula, sustained fatal injuries in the wreck, according to a report filed by crash investigator Tpr. William J. Delaney and homi cide investigator Cpl. Kimberly Benavidez. He was not wearing a seatbelt, the report stated. Also injured were Manuel Juarez, 22, of Wauchula, and Justin Garza, of Wauchula. Neither was wearing a seatbelt, according to the FHP. Juarez suffered serious in juries and was transported to Florida Hospital Wauchula. Garza was critically injured, and was taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center. The Hardee County Sheriffs Office provided details of the in cident which were not available from the Florida Highway Pa trol. The crash occurred on State Road 64 at its intersection with West Main Street, near Charlottes Webb, according to Maj. Randy Dey. The 911 emergency call came in at 1:23 a.m. After requests for information were sent Wednesday morning to 17 separate Florida Highway Patrol public information offi cers and administrative clerks, one, Lt. Greg Bueno, replied and supplied the report See CRASH 2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Call it late spring cleaning! Or call it cleaning out before the hectic days of summer. Whatever its called, Saturday is the opportunity to clean up and clean out by taking hazardous household materials to the Hardee County Landfill for its free quarterly Hazardous Waste Disposal Day between 8 a.m. and noon. To reach the landfill from downtown Wauchula, go east on Main Street about two miles. Turn north onto Airport Road a nd follow it until the pavement ends, then turn left into the en trance to the landfill at 685 Airport Road. Residents can take up to 60 pounds of all kinds of hazardous waste for free. If you dont have 60 pounds, make a stop by an elderly neighbor who might have old batteries or fluorescent light bulbs to add to your amount. One of the big items handled on HazMat Day is electronics. Getting a new model computer, laptop, cell phone, printer or s canner means safe disposal of the old varieties, not dropping them along roadsides where they can leach chemicals into the groundwater. These and similar items shouldnt be put in the garbage either, as they would contami nate landfill drainage leachate in the decades it takes for them to decompose. Saturday is the day and way to dispose of such items properly. See HAZ-WASTE 2A

Early registration for the event ends May 21. Topics will include Feed Stuffs for Beef Cattle, Growing Pasture Grass, 5 Things You Need To Know About Agriculture, Florida Wildlife Up Close, SurvivorPteridium Island, Beef Cattle Health, and Beef Cattle Reproduction. Lunch will then be served. The event is for students 8 to 18. For more information contact Andrea Dunlap at 735-1314, ext. 204. Hardee ranks No. 5 in the state in cattle numbers. The state attorneys office has begun an investigation into the Blue Water/Continuum Labs economic development project, which has received $7.25 million in public funds to help develop a medical records app. I do not expect NBA Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling to enjoy the current playoffs. This has become a mini-soap opera. Kirk Lowell Eich, executive director and CEO of the YMCA of West Florida, encourages his children to develop the following traits: be humble, compassionate, hard-working and caring. He says to do these things consistently and over a long period of time, reports Del Milligan of The Lakeland Ledger. Sounds like good advice for us all. What went wrong in the Indian River Lagoon to cause a loss of a lot of seagrass, fish and manatees? James Waymer of Florida Today said theories include fertilizer being the main culprit feeding toxic algae growth, muck, Doppler radar causing a slow microwave bake, too many manatees and their waste, septic tanks and leaky sewer pipes leaching nutrients, and a perfect storm of drought and cold weather. I am surprised someone has not blamed President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, former President Jimmy Carter, or Donald Sterling. Maybe it has something to do with Floridas population growing to 19-plus million. Most all of us want plenty of good clean water, fresh air, and a healthy environment, good food, plus some of the amenities of mod ern civilization. It sounds like Hardee natives State Rep. Ben Albritton and State Sen. Denise Grimsley had a good 2014 Florida Legislative Session. From the early gubernatorial campaign one wonders if Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov. Charlie Crist will be exchanging Christ mas cards this year. Politics can be unpredictable, so they could after all following the November election. Rev. Joe Butler is the new pastor at First Baptist Church of Wauchula. Spring football practice is underway for the Hardee High School Wildcats, who had an excellent year in 2013 and lost some key players to graduation.

T hat report also noted the vehicle in the crash was a 2003 Cadillac CTS. It was headed eastbound on SR 64 when it ran off the pavement and onto the north shoul der of the highway, where it struck an oak tree. The momentum continued to carry the Cadillac eastbound, striking a power pole then overturning and hitting a second oak tree, the FHP described. The driver and back-seat passenger were ejected from the sedan. The FHP also noted it has not yet determined which crash victim was the driver of the car. Hillard became the sixth person to die on Hardee County roadways so far this year. BRAIN CANCER HAZ-WASTEContinued From 1A CRASHContinued From 1A While out buying gifts for t hose upcoming graduates, and getting ready for graduation par ties, clean out all areas of the house. Look in the kitchen and bathrooms for old cleansers, aerosols, polishes; anything with a chemical base needs safe re moval. Many items in the garage or carport are hazardous as well. A biggie is old oilor paintstained rags, which can become combustible easily on a hot day. Take along any paint and wood stains, preservatives and turpentine. Check the dates and see if you need new chemicals and safely dispose of the old ones. There may be pesticides, herbicides and insecticides which have outlasted their usefulness and need to be replaced. Old spray cans, bags, boxes and bottles of them should be brought to the landfills Hazardous Waste Day. Very important things not to bring to the landfill are gas cylinders, ammunition, explo sives, or radioactive, bio-haz ardous or infectious waste. There are better and safer ways to dispose of them. While youre at it, collect those old bottles, newspapers, cardboard, aluminum, metal and glass for recycling. There are re cycling bins at the landfill for them. In the landfill, they take up valuable space and take 10 to 30 years to decompose. Businesses that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardous waste per month are allowed to bring it to the collection day, too, but will have to pay current con tract prices. Businesses which generate more than 220 pounds but less than 2,200 pound of hazardous waste per month are not allowed to bring their waste for disposal on Saturday, but can call for pick up at their place of business, again at current contract prices. For more information about what you can or cannot bring to Hazardous Waste Day, call the landfill at 773-5089. is costly and does not take insur a nce. To help pay for the expensive treatments he will eventually have to undergo, the Moose lodges benefit will sell chicken dinners and host a poker run and much more. The benefit begins Saturday, May 31, with activities such as turkey shoot, dunk tank, corn hole tournament, football games, cake auction, 50/50 and raffles throughout the day. In one of the auctions, someone will win a two-day, one-night fishing trip on a houseboat in Kissimmee for two adults and a one hour airboat ride. The poker run will start at 10:30 a.m. at the Moose lodge and it will then proceed at DJs Country Crossroads, Charlottes Webb, the Tap Room, the Wild Turkey and end at the Avon Park Moose Lodge. Chicken dinner tickets are available for purchase now until May 24. The dinners consist of chicken with sides, all for $7. Dinners can be picked up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. only. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Moose lodge at 773-3820, Linda Tyler at 448-1618, Amy Hulsey at 448-7850, Debbie Morris at 448-3535 or Kelly Purser at 245-9253. Wristbands with the message Kylen Chanceys War on Cancer can also be purchased by calling one of the above num bers. Cash or check donations may be sent to Wauchula Moose Lodge for Kylen at 117 King Road, Wauchula, FL 33873. Kylen says he understands many in Hardee County are worried and are praying for him. He says, They motivate me to get better. Thank you for your prayers and donations. ASSAULTContinued From 1A IDAContinued From 1A t respond by press time on W ednesday at noon. The medical-records com pany originally started out as LifeSync Technologies LLC under former CEO and state Rep. James Grant from Hillsbor ough County. He sold the company one year later to Bond in exchange for stock in Contin uum Labs. Whatley said the woman ac c used Macias of slapping and punching her as well. Finally, thinking Macias would stop, she told him she did sleep with the other subject, Whatley wrote in his arrest re port. Instead, Macias allegedly grew more violent, threatening to kill the woman and telling her that he knew how to hide a body. The woman said Macias pushed her down and told her to remove her clothing or he would kill her. Then, she alleged, he grabbed a broom handle and forced it into her, Whatley relayed. The woman told Whatley she was crying and telling Macias to stop, but he continued in his assault 10 times. Whatley said a search of the private residence where the al leged assault took place revealed a broomstick with feces on the end of the handle. It was taken into evidence, he said. Further, the womans marks and bruises, and a cut inside her lip, were recorded as evidence, he added. Macias was interviewed early on Wednesday morning of last week. Whatley said the suspect confirmed the couple had argued, but denied ever touching or threatening the woman. He admitted to the act with the broom, the lieutenant said, but said it was consensual and at the womans request. Macias was charged and booked into the jail. Dear Editor: It is clear from the Is it a Fer tilizer Plant? article that a great deal of misinformation exists about fertilizer plants. For the record, in regards to Florida Fertilizer Co. Inc., let me correct the following errors that were in the May 7 article: 1) Florida Fertilizer Company, based in Wauchula since 1959, is what is known in the in dustry as a blender. That means we buy macro and micro plant nutrients in bulk from other companies and mix them into a custom blend designed for the specific nutrient needs of a growers crop. We are not an industrial manufacturer of nitro gen fertilizers. 2) Florida Fertilizer does not and has never used anhydrous ammonia in our operations; has no complex chemical process; no reactors; no secrets, and 3) Our old plant did not burn down from a sludge fire. We upgraded our operations 11 years ago by building a more efficient plant. I encourage the County Commission and staff to review the North American Industry Clas s ification System (NAICS) which is the standard used by Federal statistical agencies in classifying business establish ments. Florida Fertilizer NAICS code is 325314 we fall under the category of Fertilizer (Mix ing Only) Manufacturing which comprise establishments primarily en-gaged in mixing ingredients made elsewhere into fertilizers. Florida Fertilizer is a familyowned Hardee County business. We help feed a growing, hungry world. We are proud to be part of this community and I invite Com missioners and their staff to visit with us. I look forward to talking with them about our industry. Thank you for allowing me to set the record straight. Sincerely Edgar L. Davis President Florida Fertilizer Co. Wauchula This letter also was sent to the Hardee County Commission.

Before God sent His Son into the world, He too, seemed beyond our reach. God the Father became God the Son and lived among us so we could come to know and understand Him. God became Man in the Person of His Son. Like us, He was born of a woman. But unlike us, He had no earthly father. His life, which began without sin, was lived without sin. He went about doing good for all healing the sick and providing hope for the crises of life.

May 15, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A number to dwindle a little after s ome prospects feel the May heat and the physical demands of the practices. He said his goal during the spring is to work on fundamentals, determine which players will be on the varsity squad in the fall and to establish the starter and backup player for every position. We want the players to leave spring committed to the team and bought into the program, he said. Martin lost 17 seniors from last years team and said he will have another large senior class this season with about 17 current juniors. Offensively the Cats will be very similar while looking to re place the quarterback, wide re ceiver, left tackle, center and tight end. Rising sophomore Hayden Lindsey and rising junior Marco Deleon will compete for the quarterback position. At wide receiver Martin said Trequan Holley, Derrick Graham and Dalton Bethea will look to fill the position. M artin expects Jose Gonzalez to take over at center and transfer Hunter Balknight could take over at tackle. Four returning linemen had some playing time last year and he expects Devin Pearson, Blaiaine Molitor, Kevin White and Debo McMillian to be solid con tributors. Roby Parris will look to take over the tight end duties along with McMillian, who could play some at guard or tight end if needed. On defense Martin will look to replace his entire defensive line, an inside and outside linebacker and a cornerback. He said the defensive line will be the biggest hole to fill and he plans to mix in a lot of different people at the positions. At linebacker he expects Parker Carlton and Derrick Gra ham to play alongside re-turning starter Keyonte Holley. So far, Martin felt he has had the best January through April offseason with strength and speed conditioning he has had since becoming the coach. M artin said at least four players are drawing attention from college scouts. Running back/linebacker Holley and receiver/linebacker Graham both have multiple Division 1 offers already and linemen Molitor and Pearson are also starting to catch the eye of college coaches and scouts. The coaching staff will be very similar as last season, with Rashad Faison, who moved out of the county, the only person not returning. Justin English and Lee Thomas will be new additions to the staff and will join Dale Carlton, Steve Rewis, Rod Smith, Barry White, Uvaldo Sanchez, Chris Cook, Shawn Rivers and Travis Tubbs. The team is having a chicken dinner fundraiser Friday night before the game and tickets can be purchased from any football player. Dinners are $10 and can be eaten inside the stadium or picked up and taken home. Admission to the Orange and Blue game is $2, or free for any one who buys a dinner. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate Fans can get their first glimpse of the 2014 Hardee Wildcat football team on Friday night at 7 as the annual spring Orange and Blue game takes place at Wildcat Stadium. The scrimmage will let players show off some of the improvements made over the spring practices, which began May 1, before hosting Port Charlotte for the spring jam boree on May 23. The Pirates beat Hardee in Port Charlotte last year 27-7 in the spring game. The Wildcats are coming off an 11-2 record last season and advanced into the third round of the state playoffs before losing to eventual state champion Plan tation American Heritage. Head Coach Buddy Martin, entering his fifth season, is look ing to replace five starters on of fense and six on the defensive side of the ball. Martin reported 62 players came out for the first day of practice but he expects that Orange & Blue Game Friday C ollecting Q: I travel a great deal for work and gather matchbooks whenever I find them. They are free and fun to collect. Is there a guide to determine if I have any rarities? Carl, Port Orange, Fla. A: The great thing about collecting matchbooks is as you mentioned a fairly good collection can be built with little or no money. That also seems to translate in prices when they pop up in the marketplace. During a recent visit to a major antique mall, I spotted a large plastic bag of several hundred matchbooks priced for $5. As I often write in this column, there are always exceptions. A matchbook from the Stork Club in New York would more than likely be worth its weight in gold. One of the better references that I have found is "The Matchcover Collector's Price Guide" by Bill Retskin and published by Antique Trader Books. This guide features more than 10,000 matchcover descriptions and estimated values in over 150 categories, from airlines to zoos. Incidentally, the first match book was created in 1889 and quickly became one of the pre mier advertising vehicles of the 20th century. Q: I have played golf for most of my adult life and have a collection of vintage clubs, balls and even tournament badges from the 1950s. How can I find out how much my collec tion is worth? Dick, Macon, Ga. A: The "Official Price Guide to Golf Col lectibles" by Edward Kiersh and published by House of Collectibles is fairly comprehensive, yet easy to navigate. In addition to current prices, Kiersh, editor of "Golf Course Register," ex plains what makes a golf col lectible valuable. He also advises how to make purchases on the Internet, and even provides tips on how to preserve, store and display golf collectibles. Q: I was a member of the Playboy Club in Chicago during the 1960s. In addition to Playboy Magazine, I also man aged to collect and save related materials such as ashtrays, key chains, shot glasses and calendars. Whom can I contact to find others who collect? Art, Paterson, N.J. A: Tom Bonner is president of the Playboy Collectors Club of America, P.O. Box 653, Phillips burg, MO 65722. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O. Box 536475, Or lando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to questionsforcox@aol.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox can not personally answer all reader questions, nor do appraisals. Do not send any materials requiring return mail. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. By Larry Cox By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Few can say they graduated from high school and college at the same time. Angela Herron is one of those few. Angela, the daughter of Doug and Carla Herron, is currently a senior at Hardee Senior High School and is on track to graduate with the Class of 2014 on June 7. Although she does not offi cially have her Associate of Arts Degree, she recently participated in the commencement exercises at South Florida State College. She will complete her AA de gree over the summer. She is the only dual-enroll ment student to conquer this task this year. At first Angela started taking DE classes as a way of getting college pre-requisite courses out of the way. She then learned that by earning a state college AA, she would have guaranteed acceptance into a state university. Her admittedly proud fa ther, Doug Herron, says that it was after learning this that she decided to pursue her degree. He t hinks she took it as a personal challenge, wanting to prove to herself that she could do it. Even though she focused on her academics to be able to ac complish this task, Angela still had time for some extracurricular activities. In her freshman year she played volleyball, was on the weightlifting team and ran track both her freshman and sophomore years. Angela was also first runner-up in the 2013 Miss Hardee County Pageant. She is currently a member of the National Honor Society at HHS and Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society at SFSC. All Angelas hard work has paid off, as she has been ac cepted to Florida State Univer sitys special education program. In the fall, she will start as a junior and work toward com pleting her Bachelors and Masters degrees in special education over the next three years. Her hope is to one day be come a special needs teacher for kids with Down Syndrome and other profound disabilities. Local Teen A Dual Grad! COURTESY PHOTO An gela Herron recently participated in South Florida State Colleges May 6 commencement exercises, before her high school graduation on June 7. She will be going on to Florida State University to pursue Bachelors and Masters degrees in special education. Dear Editor: A big thank-you goes out to the person who found my wallet and cell in the grocery buggy at the new Winn-Dixie parking lot Friday, May 9th. You were so kind to take the wallet into the liquor store; a kindness many today think does n't exist, but you are proof that it doe s. I also want to thank the ladies at the liquor store for placing my items in their safe. If this had oc cured where I used to live, all would have been stolen.

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

Florida Crop Update Week Ending: May 11, 2014 F ieldwork Resumes Where Possible Weather Summary: According to Floridas Automated Weather Network (FAWN), two locations, Arcadia (DeSoto County) and Ona (Hardee County) received an inch of rain this past week. The most rain was received in Live Oak (Suwannee County) at 1.82 inches. Maximum temperatures ranged from 83 to 93 degrees. Bron son (Levy County) received the highest temperature at 93 degrees. The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 52 degrees in Lecanto (Citrus County) to 66 degrees in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County). Field Crop: Farmers in the Panhandle and north Florida were two to four weeks behind schedule on planting field crops due to excessively wet field conditions. In Jackson County, areas with high ground were able to be planted in cotton and peanuts. In Walton County no planting occurred due to wet fields. In Washington County a considerable amount of replanting of cotton and peanuts took place. Dixie County farmers were able to plant corn and peanuts. Levy County farmers have been able to plant 95% of their peanuts. Statewide, peanut planting was 29 percent complete, behind last years 32 percent and the 5-year average of 38 percent. Citrus: Rainfall in the citrus producing area this past week was sparse and scattered. Eight stations received some precipitation, but only two received more than a tenth of an inch. Ona (Hardee County) received the most at 0.98 inches followed by Arcadia (DeS oto County) with 0.88 inches received. Daytime high temperatures were warm, reaching the low 90s in all citrus producing counties. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated May 6, 2014, no drought exists within the citrus growing area. The rainfall over the past several weeks has been beneficial. Some of the healthier and well cared for trees are showing lots of new growth; unfortunately those heavily affected by greening are thinning out or dying. Next seasons crop is progressing well with oranges marble size or bigger and grapefruit slightly larger. Hedging and topping is complete in most areas. Growers and caretakers are applying nutritional and post bloom sprays, fertilizing, irrigating, and in some cases resetting new trees. Processing plants are primarily running only Valencia oranges from now until the end of the season. Several packinghouses have finished for the season with a few still taking small amounts of late oranges. Fruit and Vegetables: Watermelon harvest is going strong in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. Potatoes and the last of the cabbage were being harvested in Flagler and Putnam counties. Bradford County farmers were harvesting the last of the strawberries. Blueberry growers in Charlotte and Glades County growers were moving to u-pick as the season winds down. Crops planted in Miami-Dade County were boniato, malanga, okra, and bitter melon. Farmers in Miami-Dade, Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties continued to irrigate all crops as needed. Miami-Dade County farmers were harvesting boniato, bitter melon, green beans, yellow squash, malanga, okra, and zucchini. Vegetables and fruits coming to market in the southwest were blueberries, collards, cucumbers, eggplant, herbs, kale, lettuce, peppers, snap beans, squash, tomatoes, watermelons, and specialty items. Livestock and Pastures: Pastures remain wet in the Panhandle for another week. Pasture quality in southwest Florida have declined due to the hot, dry, breezy conditions of the last week. The cattle condition for the State was primarily good but the pasture condition was fair to good. _______________________________ I N THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT, IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA GENERAL JURISDICTION DIVISION CASE NO.: 252013CA000686 THE BANK OF NEW YORK MELLON TRUST COMPANY, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION FKA THE BANK OF NEW YORK TRUST COMPANY, N.A.

M ay 15, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A DEAR PAW'S CORNER: M y veterinarian says I have to give both my dog and my cat heartworm medication every month. Why do I have to do this? It sounds like a moneymaking scheme for the vet and the pharmaceutical industry. Gary in Cincinnati DEAR GARY: It's not a moneymaking scheme. Trust me, you do not want your pets to suffer from the complications that heartworm infestation can cause. Heartworm in dogs is often fatal, and while cats are less likely to die from it, they too suffer problems due to the damage caused by the worms as they travel through blood vessels and or gans. Hundreds of worms can live in a dog's blood vessels ultimately traveling to the chambers of the heart for as long as seven years. It's also somewhat easy for un treated dogs and cats to become infested with heartworm. The parasite is carried by mosquitoes and can be passed along when the mosquito bites your pet. Pets are at highest risk in the summer, when it's hot and humid prime time for mosquitoes. Give your pets their heart worm medication at the recom mended dose for their breed and size, or as specified by the vet. Most heartworm medicines must be given once a month. For pet owners whose dog has never been tested for heartworm, get this test at the vet's office before starting treatment for heartworm. If the dog already has heartworm, the vet will need to treat it in a different way to prevent problems. Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

8A The Herald-Advocate, May 15, 2014 Dear Editor: A s I mentioned in my last letter the countdown has now begun on the Ona Mine. As of the end of March the permit application for the 22,400 acre mine is in the hands of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) which, as far as I am aware, has never failed to approve a phos phate mine. They will probably offer their approval within the next two months. Subsequently the Hardee County Board of Commissioners will be asked to approve the necessary zoning changes. Currently there are three more phosphate strip mine permits awaiting approval by the US Army Corps of Engineers totaling 51,754 acres (81 sq mis). The borders of three of these four mines (Wingate East, Ona and South Pasture) are contiguous and will therefore appear on a map as one vast mine impacting 33,467 acres (52 sq mis) of west central Florida a region already subjected to a century of phosphate strip mining most of it not reclaimed, or inade quately reclaimed. The duration of the mining ac tivity proposed in these four per mits, if approved, would extend between 20 to 45 years into the future. To initiate four permits simultaneously is un-prece dented in the history of Florida phosphate strip mining regula tion and arguably represents the single most devastating assault on the natural environment the state has had to face. In 2002 when IMC first began seeking approval for the Ona Mine, the Hardee County Board of Commissioners actually dis played a willingness to try to protect the interests of the county from the grip of the phosphate industry. They com missioned one of the countrys most prestigious environmental engineering firms (Hazen and Sawyer) to prepare a study of the effect of the Ona Mine on t he countys economy. The report was finalized in 2003 and is available for public inspection at the county office of the Mining Coodinator. The report called the Economic Im pact of the Ona Mine to Hardee County is quite lengthy and technical, but it contains a number of graphs which make its results quite obvious to even an uneducated eye. The dark line on the graph shows the progression of total income to Hardee County. This figure rises from less than $5 million in the first five years of mining to about $28 million from the tenth year till the end of the life of the mine. Then look what happens The total in come plummets to a level that is below what it was before the mining took place, and even goes below that where it remains for the rest of time (or 50 years on the graph). The light line on the graph represents total income to Hardee County if no mining takes place. The total income never soars to the heights illustrated on the graph during the life of the mine, but it rises steadily for the next 50 years reaching $20 million. Why does the income plum met after mining? Not only is there a sudden dearth of jobs in the county, but the once productive agricultural land which pro vided work is then dominated by Clay Waste Disposal sites which occupy 40% of all phosphate mine sites and is unsuitable for all but the most marginal of agri cultural endeavors. Does our current board of commissioners realize that the Hazen and Sawyer study on the economic impact of the Ona Mine even exists? Will the re sults of this study influence their evaluation of the Ona Mine, or will they respond merely to the fantasy world of environmental stewardship promulgated in the barrage of Mosaics deceptive m edia advertisements? Please visit our website for more information on the adverse effects of phosphate strip min ing: www.protect-peaceriver.org Dennis Mader Executive Director (3PR) People for Protecting Peace River Lily Mosaics Response to Dennis Maders Letter to the Editor: At Mosaic, we feel it is impor tant to provide members of the community updated and factual information about our opera tions in Central Florida. For this reason, we provide the follow ing information in re-sponse to a Letter to the Editor by Dennis Mader. In his letter, Mr. Mader relies on a decade-old study by an engineering firm to argue against the economic wisdom of our continuing operations in Hardee County. What he omits is the fact that a more recent and more in-depth economic analysis was conducted at the request of Hardee County by the prestigious ECONorthwest Company. This 40-page study concluded that our continued operations represent a strong long-term economic benefit to the community. This thorough study can be obtained through Hardee County, but weve also posted a copy on our local website, www.mosaicinhardee.com. Mr. Mader further argues that reclaimed land has little postmining use. He refers to land not being reclaimed but never mentions that since 1975 weve been required to reclaim every acre that we touch. Much of the land we reclaim becomes functioning wetlands, streams and wildlife habitat, and is also used for recreation, like Hardee Lakes Park. There are many other ex amples in Hardee and adjacent counties where re-claimed land is also used for cattle grazing, re sidential developments, indus trial parks or commercial cen ters, and agricultural operations, some of which are conducted on former clay settling areas. The Streamsong Resort in south Polk County adjacent to the Hardee County line is one of the more recent examples of a highly valued use of formerly mined land. This golf resort, spa a nd conference center today em ploys more than 300 people. Mr. Mader also fails to men tion that beyond the economic benefits and taxes paid through our operations, Mosaic has also made a substantial investment in Hardee County. This funding will help the community plan for and achieve the most advanta geous economic future possible, while retaining the important rural character that is key to Hardee Countys special quality of life. Our industry is an important pa rt of the communitys past, present and future. Our employees and contract partners live, raise kids, and plan one day to retire in Hardee County. Mosaic is committed to maximizing the economic benefits of our industry, and to a legacy that includes the highest standards for envi ronmental stewardship and economic benefits for Hardee Countys long-term future.

CINCO DE MAYO EVENT PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY P reparing Mexican food on May 3 in Wauchula were Julissa Molina, Edith Dominguez and Joel Hurtado. The two-day event included dancing and music, was sponsored by Peace River Explorations, and entitled Savor the Flavor Mexican Food Festival. Heavy rains cut down attendance. Q: Can you tell me what I c an see Ben McKenzie in next? I loved him on "Southland," and I really miss that series. Hallie F., via email A: Ben returns to series tele vision this fall when he stars in Fox's "Gotham," which is a prequel series to the "Batman" movies. Ben plays a young James Gordon the police official whom "Batman" fans know as an eventual ally to Bruce Wayne/Batman. The cast also in cludes Donal Logue, Jada Pin kett Smith, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bi condova, Erin Richards, Sean Pertwee, Zabryna Guevara and Cory Michael Smith. Executive producers are Bruno Heller ("The Mentalist"), Danny Can non (the "CSI" franchise and "Nikita") and John Stephens ("Gossip Girl" and "The O.C."). Judging by the teaser trailer online, this definitely is some thing I'm going to watch. Q: I keep hearing rumors that a new "Star Wars" will be coming to theaters. Is that true, or is it going to be a TV series? Freddie T., Omaha, Neb. A: The worst-kept secret in Hollywood was verified April 29 when director J.J. Abrams posted a picture on starwars.com of the first table read for the feature film "Star Wars: Episode VII." Cast members include Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Adam Driver. Of the movie, J.J. said in a statement: "It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. Everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud." Fans won't have to wait too long to see the much-anticipated film: Its scheduled premiere date is Dec. 18, 2015. Q: Can you tell me if "Al most Human" will be back for another season? John J., via email A: Fox opted not to renew the sci-fi crime drama set in 2048, which centered on John Kennex (played by Karl Urban) and his android police partner, Dorian (played by Michael Ealy). The show had been gaining in the rat ings race in recent weeks; however, there are too many new powerhouse drama series (like the aforementioned "Gotham") that Fox has ordered, and there just wasn't room for "Almost Human." Q: Years ago, I used to watch "Project Greenlight" on HBO, and I really enjoyed it. Is it true that HBO is bringing the series back? George S. in Kentucky A: After being off the air for more than a decade, HBO has opted to bring back Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's filmmaker competition series for a third sea son. Ben revealed of the 20012003 series in a press statement: "'Project Greenlight' was ahead of its time. Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back." Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

ALL YOUR PRINTING NEEDS IN ONE CONVENIENT LOCATION! and is in the process of a bond i ssue in Taylor County, where another BioNitrogen gasifica tion plant is slated to be built. He said the bonds would be issued through Deutsche Bank in New York and sold to in vestors as tax-fee municipal bonds. Cunningham said the IDA would be fully indemnified and protected from any liability if it agreed to proceed with the bond issue. IDA attorney Ken Evers rec ommended the board have an at torney familiar with bond issues read over the proposal before committing to move forward. Evers said he does not have an objection to it but felt more in formation was needed to better understand the pro-cess. He felt a bond attorney would approve the resolution after re viewing it. Cunningham said Deutsche Bank would perform a feasibili ty study on the feedstock available in the area, urea demand and the profitability of the plant itself before issuing the bonds. Previously the IDA and Economic Development Au-thority agreed to each provide $1 mil lion in grants to build a rail spur on the proposed plant site once construction has begun. Brian Kornegay, CEO of BioNitrogen, is now asking to have to $2 million advanced, instead of in conjunction with the bond issue, as previously agreed upon. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said the EDA grant can only be done on a reimburse ment basis, but the IDA grant could be modified. Lambert then went on to point out some inconsistencies in what the company has previously promised and some possible issues related to the project moving forward. H e said he was unsure on the status of the land purchase for the proposed site, which the company agreed to pay $9.7 million for 600 acres in De-cem ber 2012 from E.L. Davis off of CR 663 (Fort Green/Ona Road). Lambert also said the $175 million bond issue the company was originally approved for by the state has since expired. BioNitrogen is also asking for a reduced power rate from Peace River Electric Cooper-ative, which it has not received, Lambert said. The board ultimately agreed by a 9-0 vote to seek the opinion of a bond attorney and recon sider the proposal during a special meeting on May 27 at 1:30 p.m. in the County Com-mission chambers. Donald Samuels declared a conflict of interest over his son working for the company and abstained from voting. A fter the vote he accused Lambert of trying to cut the throat of the project. IDA Chairman Vanessa Hernandez then warned Samuels about making comments and trying to influence board members after declaring a conflict, and asked for more decorum moving forward. Discussions then turned to the IDA advancing the company the $1 million it agreed to contribute to the project. Her-nandez said the board cant front the money without knowing for sure the plant will get built or having some sort of security interest. Steven Southwell, a Wauchula attorney representing BioNitrogen, said if the board was looking for full collateral or no risk, then the company probably shouldnt be in front of the IDA. Kornegay then proffered the money be advanced in the form of a 12-month loan that converts to a grant at the time of the bond closing. If Hardee County is not will ing to use the tools it has in its toolbox, then we will go to an other county, he said. Kornegay said the company owns patents worth $15 million it was willing to put up as collat eral. Hernandez said the board would be willing to look at all options and alternatives to move the project forward. Kornegay said he just wanted to feel progress was being made on the project and the commu nity as a whole supported it. The company has previously stated it would produce 124,000 tons of liquid urea fertilizer annually at the plant and provide at least 50 well-paying jobs. Of The Herald-Advocate A company planning to build a gasification plant in Hardee County to turn biomass into urea fertilizer has asked the Industrial Development Author-ity to issue $300 million in bonds to raise the needed capital to construct the facility. BioNitrogen is asking the IDA and the County Commission to issue the bonds so it can qualify for federal tax exemp tions, according to Donald Cunningham, a lawyer from the Jones Walker Law Firm in Louisiana representing the com pany in the bond issue. He asked the IDA to sign an inducement resolution to begin the process, which the board did not do Tuesday. Cunningham said the com pany recently went through the same process in Hendry County, where it is planning another site, BioNitrogen Seeking $300 Million Bond Issue

12A The Herald-Advocate, May 15, 2014 For Mothers Day I wrote my little Sugar Possum a little dab of poul try. It goes something like this: If you go first, and I go last, in memory of you Ill have a blast! Happy Mothers Day, you little Sugar Booger you. No sir, if you are not a good street fighter or a pool room brawler, then dont try to become an ice hockey player, because it looks like to me they fight about 80 to 90 percent of the time and play hockey with whatever time is left. Yep, my old buddy Bill Smith, they just dont make friends like him no more. He was best man at both of my weddings, for me when I married Jan and June. Then to be fair he was their main witness when they divorced me. No sir, Bill is one of a kind. Two of the most harmful things that have hurt homes in life in America over the years have been the telephone and car keys. In todays world there are so many children here in America who were not reared by their parents but simply grew up around them. Fortunately history has always reserved a page or two for those known as humanitarians, proving the good-hearted and the merciful are duly remembered, no matter how small the print. My dumb cousin Marvin finally became a marriage counselor. To his surprise his first couple was his ex-wife and her new hus band. In time with the silent arrival of grey hair, squinched eyes and a wrinkled face, this is time speaking to us in the only way it knows how. Have you ever seen Adolph Hitler, the evil one, wearing a shortsleeve shirt in any photograph you have ever seen? Greatness can be determined by comparison. The biggest difference between a know-it-all is their income. The best way known to man to truly become an optimist is to become a Christian through the blood of Jesus Christ our Savior, for He is the way, the truth and the light. May my music talents forever remain my salute to every man who ever wore a brogan and a bowtie. Divine wisdom and the folly of fools do not compare.

Jokes & Philosophies W ith A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas BASS PRO SHOP, WHOLE FOODS MARKET & EN GINEERING This week, I am once again turning my column over to Alyssa Henderson, our prevention lieutenant and public information officer. She makes a good point. Enjoy! I seriously love Whole Foods Market, not because of the name brand Whole Foods has become or the fact that its prices are usually higher (so it must be better, right?). Whole Foods is great because it gives you options. Options you cant find anywhere else and they are all under the same roof! Hooray! Whole Foods has nearly every gluten-free, peanut-free, dairyfree and non-gmo product that is out there. It also has a supplement center for anything that may ail you and a smoothie bar that is out of this world. My personal favorite is the Green Dream. If you have a food allergy, like I do, Whole Foods is nothing short of a miracle! If you are lucky enough to not suffer from a food allergy (and I do mean suffer ), perhaps you can relate more to another place I love, Bass Pro Shop? Where else in the world can you go where you can buy anything from boats to hunting gear to home decor? Dont have enough money for a boat? Why not buy a kayak? Have a coyote problem? Bass Pro has the solution! I once spent many, many hours in Bass Pro waiting for someone to pick out a fishing pole. Do you know how many fishing poles Bass Pro has? I do. I saw each and every one of them! Whole Foods and Bass Pro are great because of the options they give us. I am sure you have never thought of it this way, but engineers are great for the same reason. They give us options. Whether you are building a house or business, we all have ideas of what we want it to look like, what functions it will need to serve and, biggest of all, how much we can spend for it. The fabulous thing about engineers is that they design buildings to meet both what your specifications and needs are and what the code requires. In other words, engineers are professionals at design ing buildings and have the time and expertise to explore options for you. Many people ask the building official and me what the requirements are to build their building. Our answer usually is it depends. I promise we arent trying to avoid the question or have something else to do, like play solitaire! When designing a building there are so many variables and so many different ways you can meet the code requirements that its hard to sum up in a quick conversation what the requirements are much less the time we would have to spend researching it. Plus, our license and expertise is in inspecting and making sure the building meets code; where as an engineers license and expertise is in designing. So, when you think about it, do you really want someone who isnt licensed to design your building? Oh, and just in case you are still wondering, there are 1,247 fishing poles at Bass Pro!

The recipients are (front, from left) Jessica Paz-Santiago of Hilltop Elementary, Christopher Castaldi of North Wauchula Elementary and Billy Block of Zolfo Springs Elementary; (back) Katherine Reneau of Bowling Green Elementary, Emory Smith of Hardee Senior High, Jacques Brown of Hardee Junior High and Seth McCall of Wauchula Elementary. They are flanked by School Board Chairman Thomas Trevino and Superintendent David Durastanti. By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate One of the most loved and an ticipated school banquets of the year recently was held at Best Western Heritage Inn & Suites. The 25th annual Yes I Can! program took place at the Bowl ing Green hotel on Friday, May 2. One student from each public school in the county was recognized at the event. This program was established by the Foundation for Excep tional Children. It recognizes ex ceptional students for achievement in the areas of academics, arts, athletics, commu nity service, employment, ex-tracurricular activities, independent living skills, technol ogy, and self-advocacy.

Over 400 Gator fans attended the barbecue dinner. Several $1,000 college scholarships were awarded to Polk students. Muschamp said the Gators should be improved in 2014, especially on offense and the kicking game. UF finished 4-8 in 2013, and Muschamp in the offseason hired a new offensive coordinator from Duke. The Gator offense should be good, a quarterback with Jeff Driskell, is deep in runningbacks and strong with receivers.

The clubhouse is located at 131 N. 8th Ave. MAIN STREET UPDATE Fort Green News By R illa Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green! I s ure hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day. Everyone who has a living mother is very fortunate and should let her know how much she means to them. After I was grown and lived down here and Mama lived in Georgia, I talked to her every Saturday morning and enjoyed my coffee time with her. We had a good Mothers Day and enjoyed dinner together with family at the Double J restaurant right in town. In times past we have rushed out of town but this choice was very good. My daughter, Avie, and family including Gavin and my sisterin-law, Avis, made up our crew. There were lots of other families enjoying being together. Ernestine Durrance was there and it always is good to see her and all her family. Ernestine is a very attractive lady with beautiful white hair. Sam Fite and family were there and he is a proud grandpa with his new little granddaughter. It is always good to see Sam but usually when I see him it is at a 4-H function. Fort Green Baptist was very full Sunday with family and friends visiting. Connie Cokers parents, Newt and Christine Murdock, were present along with her sister, Debbie. Of course her daughter, Angie, goes to Fort Green and she and her family were there. The only ones missing were Trish and Amber. Newt and Christine both l ook good and seem to get around very good. Family is very important and cannot be stressed enough! Betty Abbott was our oldest mother. Lila Blink is actually the oldest but she lives in West Virginia and said she was going to leave her membership at Fort Green. Every mother received a potted begonia. Quite a few people remember the Blinks. After Mr. Leo died Lila moved home to be near her daughter and family. Her youngest brother, Warren, spent winters in Naples and he passed away a few weeks ago. He came to our church whenever we were honoring Mr. Blinks birthday. Mr. Blink would have turned 100 the year he made his final journey. Paul Clark turned a year older and enjoyed his day with a few close friends having supper at a restaurant in Sebring. Geraldine Floyd told me she went to her granddaughters graduation but it rained buckets! The parking garage where they parked did not have elevators and she had to climb stairs! That would have done me in, climbing all those steps! She is very proud of her granddaugh ter, as well she should be, and would not have missed it for the world, rain, stairs and all! Sandy Hash is a very good friend. We worked together during a couple of jobs. She brought me a couple of red roses Friday along with a delicious pa stry. She is one good cook and enjoys it! She always takes the Resthaven residents special gifts on holidays. I might have good intentions some times but that is as far as it goes! Hunter Reid is driving his own white truck and it is very pretty. He is a careful driver, which is a good trait. Byron Allison will be in Bay Pines hospital for a little longer. He is taking radiation and is scheduled to be released on the 19th and will come home with medicine. James Williamson is finally scheduled to have his knee surgery Wednesday. Guy Bassett is very sick. He lives in West Virginia and is the brother of Faye Davis. Nancy Mc-Quaig had finally gotten over the virus but had a relapse and is sick again! Gloria Dupree is back in the hospital, or that was the report Sunday. Kathy Gomez had two strokes, one leaving her blind. I saw her aunt at Quest and also Rhonda Richardson was there and said she had been sick for over three weeks and they had not determined what yet. Bruce Roberts is still having trouble and unable to work. Please pray for all of these and others you might know about. Tyler Smith came in third in the Mission 5K over last weekend. Congratulations to him and all the other participants. Please pray for each other and our nation.

Maguiar, 46, resident of Fort Myers, was killed as the result of an automobile accident which occurred at the railway overpass north of Bowling Green. Mr. Maguiar had stopped frequently in Wauchula and was highly esteemed by his friends. A fishing party from Wauchula enjoyed a cruise over the week-end aboard Capt. Joe Stewarts yacht, the Eden.

Jeff Maddox said. Traffic slowed as motorists looked at about seven people carrying signs in front of Hardee Junior High School last Friday morning. The small group, supporting Robert and Bell Loos in their demonstration against al leged unfair education, walked a picket line as the Looses insisted that their adopted grandson, Christopher Chris Loos, 12, was being denied an education in the Hardee County School System.

May 15, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Local Blueberry Grower H as Productive Season By JIM KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate 2014 has been a great year of production for the five-acre blueberry field on Barkdoll Road north of Hwy. 62 in Hardee County, said owner Edward Parker on Monday. He and his wife Enid also have a 15acre field of blueberries in Fort Meade. The final days of U-pick will be Friday and Saturday from 9 to 6. Then he will cut the bushes back to about 2 1/2 to 3 feet high so they will put on a lot of new growth and have a big bloom in January and February. The blueberries are on first-year growth. Parker started picking his field on April 2 when prices were $7 t o $8 a pound. Blueberries are considered a super fruit in terms of taste and nutrition. Prices remained strong for three weeks when the fruit dropped to $5 a pound. Four to seven dollars a pound is considered top of the market, said Parker. The family has three sons and live in Avon Park. The U-pick prices are $2.50 a pound, or pre-picked for $4.50 a pound. On Monday Parker had 41 pickers in the five-acre field on a bulk sale to a buyer in Ala bama. The price was $1.98 a pound a dollar to the picker and 98 cents for the grower. There are two varieties: emer alds which are flatter and s weeter and jewels which are shaped like a pearl and have a slightly tart taste to go with the sweet flavor. There are 10,000 plants which were put into the ground on Aug. 15, 2012, on 15-foot rows and double-set. One blueberry plant, depending on weather, growing conditions and care, can produce 2 1/2 to 10 pounds of berries. They are planted on pine bark mulch, which did cost $1,250 for a 90-cubic yard load but now costs $2,500 since an ethanol plant opened near Gainesville. Monday was the 13th or 14th picking of the field. Production exceeded our expectations. Parker plans to have a big cooler in operation by next season. Blueberries stored at 34 degrees can last 30 days. Yield of blueberries can be 3,000 to 8,000 pounds per acre. Proper fertilizer, moisture and spraying are essential. Enemies include maggots, birds, anthracnose, and flower thrips. Sometimes flocks of cedar waxwing birds come and can eat and/or destroy 200 to 300 pounds of berries a day. he uses propane-powered cannons for noise and recorded predator bird calls to help chase the birds away. The calls were more ef fective this year and included hawks, eagles, seagulls and the scream of a bird being attacked. Pine bark mulch lasts longer in the soil than most other wood chips and helps bring down the soil pH to 5.5, preferred by blue berries and azaleas. Parker estimates there are five major blueberry growers in Hardee County with a total of about 140 acres. He uses bees for pollinators. Desoto and Highlands counties have blue berry acreage. Polk County has over 1,000 acres. After blueberry production ends in Chile, the area of Arcadia to Plant City generally has a four-week window of opportu nity for high prices between mid-April and mid-May, said Parker. Even though his bushes will still have plenty of fruit on them they will be cut way back next week to achieve the early bloom in January and February which yields ripe fruit for the several weeks of prime prices in April and early May. Parker believes there is room for growth in the blueberry in dustry in this area. Some small growers have bad luck and have closed their fields. Blueberry consumption is growing nationwide, and they are good to eat as fresh fruit or in pancakes, muffins, pies, and cobblers or as part of a mixed fruit salad.

It needs help in general. It needs honesty, truth and most importantly God. People need to get up off their backside and stand up for what is right. All over the world people sit back and let others do as they please for fear of personal loss. Do they not know they will have loss if they still do nothing? I have had my share with our countys public officials who sit in office and twiddle their thumbs. They act all concerned to your face, but really that is as far as it gets...they act. I have scheduled an appoint ment and attempted to be seen, but no one showed up or even called to cancel. Great communications skillsright? How concerned are the public offi cials in any offices of Hardee County? Especially the School Board. People in any office see and hear only who they want to deal with. They have their fa vorites...everywhere. They pick and choose what is beneficial for themselves. They make jobs for who they want. They can change rules and rewrite what they want. It does not matter if they are on any board of directors. It does not matter if they are deacons in the church. There will always be hyp ocrites and fake uncaring peo ple. Their only concern is for them and theirs. There are many things done in society for personal and political gain. And land has always been an issue with the government officials. Greed, money and power work in the hands of people with dark hearts. Intimidation and threatening opposition are their tactics. Gods people need to s tand up for all things that are right in our world. We the people do have a voice. We can speak up for the right. Do not sit back on your hands and wait for others to voice your opinion. Speak up and be heard you can make a difference. People will come in and steal everything out from under you all the while you watch and do nothing. We might as well hang our signs that say, Take from me while I do nothing. Rights and freedoms are dis solving every day, because we do not speak or make a stand on what is right. Our county and country need God! Politicians, be aware. If you tell lies and have deceit in your office, it will only be for a season of darkness, for God will bring out truth into the light. When voting time rolls around remember the broken prom ises of candidates in the of fice right now. Look at their records of accomplishments while they were in office. Did they prosper for themselves or did they look out for the people they liked? Personal gains and rewards given out to themselves? How about their annual paydid they receive their own personal raise? Or was their office held in contempt? Did they work for the people or the county, state and public poorly or properly? Never be intimidated by oth ers with authority. How do they think they received their job? From people like us. Thats us. If you do not voice opinions no one will read your mind, or much less want to. Get involved with your community. Attend meetings. Support your cause. Use your voice. So what if people dont like it or you? Their right, just like you have your rights. Use your rights. Voice them. Freedom still reigns.

CINCO DE MAYO EVENT PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY P reparing Mexican food on May 3 in Wauchula were Julissa Molina, Edith Dominguez and Joel Hurtado. The two-day event included dancing and music, was sponsored by Peace River Explorations, and entitled Savor the Flavor Mexican Food Festival. Heavy rains cut down attendance. Q: Can you tell me what I c an see Ben McKenzie in next? I loved him on "Southland," and I really miss that series. Hallie F., via email A: Ben returns to series tele vision this fall when he stars in Fox's "Gotham," which is a prequel series to the "Batman" movies. Ben plays a young James Gordon the police official whom "Batman" fans know as an eventual ally to Bruce Wayne/Batman. The cast also in cludes Donal Logue, Jada Pin kett Smith, David Mazouz, Robin Lord Taylor, Camren Bi condova, Erin Richards, Sean Pertwee, Zabryna Guevara and Cory Michael Smith. Executive producers are Bruno Heller ("The Mentalist"), Danny Can non (the "CSI" franchise and "Nikita") and John Stephens ("Gossip Girl" and "The O.C."). Judging by the teaser trailer online, this definitely is some thing I'm going to watch. Q: I keep hearing rumors that a new "Star Wars" will be coming to theaters. Is that true, or is it going to be a TV series? Freddie T., Omaha, Neb. A: The worst-kept secret in Hollywood was verified April 29 when director J.J. Abrams posted a picture on starwars.com of the first table read for the feature film "Star Wars: Episode VII." Cast members include Harrison Ford, Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Adam Driver. Of the movie, J.J. said in a statement: "It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. Everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud." Fans won't have to wait too long to see the much-anticipated film: Its scheduled premiere date is Dec. 18, 2015. Q: Can you tell me if "Al most Human" will be back for another season? John J., via email A: Fox opted not to renew the sci-fi crime drama set in 2048, which centered on John Kennex (played by Karl Urban) and his android police partner, Dorian (played by Michael Ealy). The show had been gaining in the rat ings race in recent weeks; however, there are too many new powerhouse drama series (like the aforementioned "Gotham") that Fox has ordered, and there just wasn't room for "Almost Human." Q: Years ago, I used to watch "Project Greenlight" on HBO, and I really enjoyed it. Is it true that HBO is bringing the series back? George S. in Kentucky A: After being off the air for more than a decade, HBO has opted to bring back Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's filmmaker competition series for a third sea son. Ben revealed of the 20012003 series in a press statement: "'Project Greenlight' was ahead of its time. Now that technology has caught up to the concept, we thought it was a perfect time to bring it back." Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Above, second graders strut their stuff. Below, fifth graders react to performances. IDOL TALENT A A n n O O d d e e t t o o A A l l l l i i u u m m s s It's hard to imagine a world w ithout alliums: scallions, leeks, shallots, garlic and onions. In fact, I don't think I want to. But if forced to venture there in my imagination, it would be a land of drab salads, sauces, salsas and dressings. Onions pack so much flavor in the membranes of their spicy, sometimes sweet layers that, as we all know, a little goes a long way. They sit at the pinnacle of taste, right next to that other beloved allium, garlic. Onions, however, have a slight edge over garlic in that they come in so many shapes and sizes, provid ing an imaginative cook a broad field of opportunity. Late spring is when alliums of every kind are coming out of the earth. And while many varieties of onions keep for months in cool, dry storage, fresh onions are a taste treat not to be missed. Right now, you'll find leeks; red, white and yellow bulb onions; scallions, also known as green onions; and shallots at your local farmer's market. Start there if you can. But if not, your local grocery would have to shut its doors if it couldn't provide a decent supply and variety of onions. Also, to be clear about a conKitchen Div a By Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow tinuing confusion, there is no dif ference between scallions and green onions it's simply two names for the same allium. There is a difference, however, between scallions (green onions) and spring onions. Spring onions are very young bulb onions, such as the white, yellow or red variety. You can tell the difference between a spring onion and a scallion by the size of the bulb. The bulb of a spring onion will be fat and round, while the scallion/ green onion will be thin and narrow. When shopping for any onion, make sure the bulb feels firm to the touch. With green or spring onions, look for those with firm, straight stalks. They should still be bright in color with springy roots sprouting from the bulb end. A wonderful distinction of the scallion/green onion is that it provides a combination of nutritional benefits those of onions as well as greens. It also has an unmistakable flavor, separate from other bulb onions. The white of young bulb onions, as well as scallions, is usually sharper than that of large bulb onions, and the more fi brous green stalk has a hot, un mistakable mineral flavor that can punch up a dish in no time. When heated, though, those traits become even more interesting, as the hot and sharp turns a little soft and sweet. This flavorful trait is what makes my recipe for Buttered White Fish with Charred Scallions so delicious. Buttered White Fish With Charred Scallions Charring the scallions in a hot skillet adds a depth of flavor that enhances the fish. Whipped butter has one-half the calories of regular, unsalted butter and im parts a richness to this unique fish dish. 2 bunches scallions or green onions, root end removed and discarded 1/4 cup whipped butter 2 tablespoons olive oil or co conut oil 2 (8-ounce) fish filets (any firm, white fish -bream, cod, hal ibut, sea bass, sole, tilapia, etc. 1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper 1. Mince both the green and white parts of the scallions. Set aside. Melt the butter in a heavybottom skillet over high heat. Add in the oil. 2. Season fish on both sides with the salt and poultry seasoning. Sear fish in skillet; then add in half the scallions; cook until scallions darken and look almost burnt, 3-4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, add remaining scallions, and sprinkle fish with lemon pepper. Cook until fish is done, 6-8 minutes. Serves 2.

Why is so much emphasis placed on this issue when you dont even have children, your children are grown, or you have never even known a teen parent? Is this whole issue of teen pregnancy overdramatized and blown out of proportion? Since the month of May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, I thought we should take a look at this issue and you can draw your own conclusions. First, lets look at the children born to teen mothers: maturely and at low birth weight, raising the probability of infant death, blindness, deafness, chronic respiratory problems, mental retardation, mental illness, cerebral palsy, dyslexia, and hyperactivity. to older parents. They are 50 percent more likely to repeat a grade, are less likely to complete high school than the children of older mothers, and have lower performance on standardized tests. and neglect than would occur if their mothers had delayed child bearing, and are twice as likely to be placed in foster care as children born to older parents. up in prison. become teen mothers themselves. Secondly, lets look at the teen mothers of these children: postpone childbearing, teen mothers are more likely to end up on welfare. of unmarried teen mothers began receiving welfare within five years of the birth of their first child. as a teenager. are poor. months of the first birth, which can further impede their ability to finish school or keep a job, and to escape poverty. Thirdly, lets look at the fathers of the children born to teen mothers: children. to teen mothers, often because they are quite poor themselves. because of abandonment of the teen mother and her baby. teens who do not father children. Finally, lets look at some economic issues surrounding teen pregnancy: billion each year in direct costs associated with health care, foster care, criminal justice and public assistance, as well as lost tax revenues. one particular curriculum found that for every dollar invested in the savings were produced by preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). I hope after reading this far you have been able to understand the importance of being concerned about the issue of teen preg nancy. Not only does teen childbearing have serious consequences for teen parents, their children and society, it also has important eco nomic consequences. Helping young women avoid too-early pregnancy and childbearing and young men avoid premature fatherhood is easier and much more cost effective than dealing with all of the problems that occur after the babies are born. When children have children, their opportunities are diminished right from the start, and their future is often one of poverty. Thats not good for business. The business community has a vested interest in preventing teen pregnancy and childbearing because of the associated financial, social and workforce-related consequences. If teens can delay parenthood, they will have the time and resources they need for their education and training, which are crucial to a productive workforce in an increasingly high-tech world.

I took on the task of selling their home so that they can continue to fund their new situation. However, the real-estate bro ker who I initially contacted said the house is in too poor a condition to sell. I don't have the time or money to fix up their house. What can I do? Charly, via email A: Did the broker give you any indication of why he or she felt the house couldn't be sold in its current condition? If not, con tact the broker to find out what specific things stood out. If you don't get answers, contact an other real-estate firm to come see the house and find out if it's re ally unsellable. I don't have any specifics as to the home's condition from your letter, but to an agent or broker trying to sell your home, appearance is very important. Is the inside of the home very cluttered? Is there damage to interior walls, visible mold, large cracks or other immediately noticeable issues? Is the exterior of the home in need of paint or repairs to the siding, roof, steps or walkways? These all affect the home's sale price and can make it sit on the market longer than anyone would like. Houses can sell in any condition but the price will take a hit if it needs a lot of work. I vividly recall being shown a triple-decker in East Boston several years ago with foundation problems so bad, the structure was tilting at an alarming angle. The house sold, but at about onethird the average price for homes in that neighborhood. If the house is structurally sound, you may be able to raise its sale price by investing some time and sweat into freshening up its appearance, outside and in. A fresh coat of paint alone can make a home's value jump, and it's not a huge investment. Make a plan to do specific things over several weekends, or even one day a week if that's all the time you have. Enlist family and friends to help. Put together a budget ahead of time so you know how much you can spend on minor repairs. by keeping the lawn mowed and the hedges trimmed. Tear out any dead vegetation. Plant a few flowers along the walkway or in front of the house. interior, too. If there's a lot of fur niture or keepsakes, if the closets are full of clothes, find out what your parents want to keep, sell or distribute. If they can't come to the house to show you, take pictures of all the items, put them on your laptop and go through them with your parents. Get dust and cobwebs out of the house, wipe the walls clean and get the kitchen and bathrooms as sparkling as possible. coat of paint. Remove peeling or torn wallpaper, and repair small holes and dings in the walls. about staging a house. HGTV has some quick tips, as well as a room-by-room staging guide. some major repair issues, such as needing a new roof, foundation or plumbing issues, talk with the broker about them and how these can affect the sale of the home. HOME TIP: Make de-cluttering and staging a home easier by removing personal items, photos and memorabilia first it takes much of the emotion out of the decision-making. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta CUTTING DISABILITY RI SK IS NO SWEAT The British Medical Journal has reported some findings that will cheer quite a number of sen iors: We don't necessarily have to do strenuous workouts to lower our risk of becoming disabled. During the two-year study, 1,680 participants ages 49 to 83 in Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island wore ac celerometers to measure the intensity and duration of their daily living activities. Key activ ities included cooking, grocery shopping, making phone calls, walking across the room, bathing and getting dressed. All of the participants were free of disability but were either at risk for knee osteoarthritis or already had it. The outcome showed that the more time spent in light-inten sity activities, the lower the as sociation with disability, as well as reduced progression of existing disability. It appears that the crucial factor is the amount of time spent in activities, not the spending more time during the day simply moving your body may reduce disability. Granted, previous research in dicated that 2 1/2 hours a week of moderate to vigorous activity c an reduce disability, but some of us just aren't able to handle moderate exercise, much less vigorous. to engage in light activities to give us the edge in lowering our disability risk? That depends on how far you want to reduce your will reduce your risk 43 percent. The more minutes, the greater the reduction in risk. But even light housework each day or getting up during TV commercials can cut your risk of becoming disabled by os teoarthritis. All you have to do is move!

Tonight (Thursday), the Hardee Senior High School Blue Star Brigade concert band will be entertaining everyone with their final concert of the 201314 school year. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the school au ditorium, and will be under the direction of Michael Hill. On Sunday, Youth Pastor Trent Livingstone will be travel ing from Kissimmee to New Hope Baptist Church.

Pastor Livingstone will be leading the morning wor ship service, coming as a prospective youth leader for the church. It was good to hear that Mitch and Judy Marsh were able to return stateside from Nicaragua so that she could obtain necessary medical care. Please re-member to pray for them daily and for the next mission team that will be going to Grenada in a few weeks from New Hope Baptist Church. Gollia Ford, who has been the Hardee Senior High School main office receptionist for many years, recently retired. She has gone straight into a serious medical situation with a total hip replacement that was done on Tuesday of last week. She reportedly is doing well, but covets our prayers. Longtime friends Eddie and Jean Wilson are also on our prayer list as Eddie recovers from heart surgery and Jean is coping with lung issues. May God bless you both. Continued prayers have been asked for Rod and Emily Wilson Louracy, of Texas, as they find inner healing after the re cent loss of their daughter, Martha Grace. May God grant peace and healing of their hearts and souls. Others on our prayer list this week are: Tom Robinson, Shirley Knight, Doyle Bryan and Frances Daves. Many have other immediate needs and other needs that may be un-known to us, but if the Lord puts someone on your heart, no matter when, please take time to pray for them.

8C The Herald-Advocate, May 15, 2014 Well, spring sports came to a crashing halt last week. T he girls softball team went further than anyone could have anticipate at the start of the 2014 season. With only three seniors, firstyear Coach Caitlyn Bliss challenged her players and they re-sponded with a district championship and wins in the first and second rounds of the regional playoffs. Unfortunately, a rainout on Friday, May 2 led to a makeup game that Monday evening, with another long trek to Bradenton to play against Bayshore, which won to go on to the elite four in the state playoffs. Hardees advancement to the top eight in the state is a preview of whats to come, says Bliss, who will return a seasoned crew next year and will continue the team slogan, We will not stop. They aim for a state championship next season and will be competitive for years to come with the grass roots youth softball program already in place. Boys baseball also came to an abrupt stop in an eight-inning marathon, which began after 9:30 p.m. when early rains flooded the field and required a lot of draining and repair to make it playable. The game should have been rescheduled as the girls was, but Cape Coral insisted on playing and the umpires supported that request. Hardee lost, and will lose 11 seniors on this years squad, which compiled a 21-4 record and a district championship along the way. The only other high school spring sport is football. Players are on the practice field and gearing up for the annual Orange-Blue game tomorrow (Friday) night at Wildcat Stadium. The annual Spring Classic will also be at home, on May 23, beginning at 7 p.m., against the visiting Port Charlotte Pirates. When football is over, work will begin on upgrades at the stadium. The School Board recently approved bids for stadium box renovations and painting. Later in the summer, the track will be improved as well. Now, its down to community sports. Mens Church League is winding down, but Womens Church League and Mens Community League may be starting their summer seasons soon. For hoop fans, there is a summer youth basketball skills and drills and games. Registration for the Hardee Hoops Develop-men tal League is on Friday, May 16 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. at the Hardee Junior High School gymnasium, which is reached off Keeton Road south of the school. There will be divisions for ages 5/6, 7/8, 9/10 and 11/12, which will be co-ed and girls and boys teams for ages 13/14. There will be a skills assessment and drills on May 17, beginning at 9 a.m. for the youngest group. All youth must complete the assessments to be assigned to a team. There will be games on Saturdays from June 14 to Aug 9, with the exception of June 28 and July 5. Cost for the summer program is $40, which includes a reversible jersey. A parent or guardian must bring the childs birth cer tificate to the registration on May 16. For more information, contact Coach Vance Dickey at 863-781-0593 or vdickey11@-gmail.com.

He decided to go toFlorida Hospital Wauchula toget a magnetic resonance imag ing (MRI) test. The next day he went to see his doctor, who broke the newsthat it looked like Kylen hadbrain cancer. Kylen says he tookthe news very hard. His doctor referred him to a neurosurgeon in Lakeland, whowanted to get a biopsy of thetumor to see exactly what typeof cancer it was and to try andfigure out how to fight it. Kylenspent 31 hours in the hospitalafter the biopsy and then had to wait two weeks for the final re sults, which confirmed the badnews that his tumor was malig nant. Since his diagnosis is so re cent, Kylen has not had anytreatments yet. However he hasseen doctors at Shands Hospitalin Gainesville to talk about hisdiagnosis. Kylen will meet withhis doctor again on June 5 to fur ther discuss his treatment op tions and see what will be mosteffective in fighting off the can cer.

These and similar items shouldn’t be put in the garbageeither, as they would contami nate landfill drainage leachate inthe decades it takes for them todecompose. Saturday is the day and way to dispose of such items properly. See HAZ-WASTE 2A

Hardee ranks No. 5 in thestate in cattle numbers. ——— The state attorney’s office has begun an investigation into the Blue Water/Continuum Labs economic development proj ect, which has received $7.25 million in public funds to help develop a medicalrecords app. ——— I do not expect NBA Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Ster ling to enjoy the current playoffs. This has become a mini-soapopera. ——— Kirk Lowell Eich, executive director and CEO of the YMCA of West Florida, encourages his children to develop the followingtraits: be humble, compassionate, hard-working and caring. He saysto do these things consistently and over a long period of time, reportsDel Milligan of The Lakeland Ledger. Sounds like good advice forus all. ——— What went wrong in the Indian River Lagoon to cause a loss of a lot of seagrass, fish and manatees? James Waymer of FloridaToday said theories include fertilizer being the main culprit feedingtoxic algae growth, muck, Doppler radar causing a slow microwavebake, too many manatees and their waste, septic tanks and leaky sewer pipes leaching nutrients, and a perfect storm of drought andcold weather. I am surprised someone has not blamed President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush, former Pres ident Jimmy Carter, or Donald Sterling. Maybe it has something to do withFlorida’s population growing to 19-plus million. Most all of us want plenty of good clean water, fresh air, and a healthy environment, good food, plus some of the amenities of mod ern civilization. ——— It sounds like Hardee natives State Rep. Ben Albritton and State Sen. Denise Grimsley had a good 2014 Florida Legislative Session. ——— From the early gubernatorial campaign one wonders if Gov. Rick Scott and former Gov.

That report also noted the ve hicle in the crash was a 2003Cadillac CTS. It was headed eastbound on SR 64 when it ran off the pave ment and onto the north shoul der of the highway, where itstruck an oak tree. The momentum continued to carry the Cadillac eastbound,striking a power pole then over turning and hitting a second oaktree, the FHP described. The driver and back-seat pas senger were ejected from thesedan. The FHP also noted it has not yet determined which crash vic tim was the driver of the car. Hillard became the sixth per son to die on Hardee Countyroadways so far this year. BRAIN CANCER HAZ-WASTEContinued From 1A CRASHContinued From 1A While out buying gifts for those upcoming graduates, andgetting ready for graduation par ties, clean out all areas of thehouse. Look in the kitchen and bath rooms for old cleansers,aerosols, polishes; anything witha chemical base needs safe re moval. Many items in the garage or carport are hazardous as well. A“biggie” is old oilor paint-stained rags, which can becomecombustible easily on a hot day.Take along any paint and woodstains, preservatives and turpen tine. Check the dates and see if you need new chemicals and safelydispose of the old ones. There may be pesticides, her bicides and insecticides whichhave outlasted their usefulnessand need to be replaced. Oldspray cans, bags, boxes and bot tles of them should be brought tothe landfill’s Hazardous WasteDay. Very important things not to bring to the landfill are gascylinders, ammunition, explo sives, or radioactive, bio-haz ardous or infectious waste.There are better and safer waysto dispose of them. While you’re at it, collect those old bottles, newspapers,cardboard, aluminum, metal andglass for recycling. There are re cycling bins at the landfill forthem. In the landfill, they takeup valuable space and take 10 to30 years to decompose. Businesses that generate less than 220 pounds of hazardouswaste per month are allowed tobring it to the collection day, too,but will have to pay current con tract prices. Businesses which generate more than 220 pounds but lessthan 2,200 pound of hazardouswaste per month are not allowedto bring their waste for disposalon Saturday, but can call for pickup at their place of business,again at current contract prices. For more information about what you can or cannot bring toHazardous Waste Day, call thelandfill at 773-5089. is costly and does not take insur ance.

The medical-records com pany originally started out asLifeSync Technologies LLCunder former CEO and stateRep. James Grant from Hillsbor ough County. He sold the com pany one year later to Bond inexchange for stock in Contin uum Labs. Whatley said the woman ac cused Macias of slapping andpunching her as well. “Finally, thinking Macias would stop, she told him she didsleep with the other subject,”Whatley wrote in his arrest re port. Instead, Macias allegedly grew more violent, threateningto kill the woman and telling herthat he knew how to hide a body. The woman said Macias pushed her down and told her toremove her clothing or he wouldkill her. Then, she alleged, he grabbed a broom handle and forced itinto her, Whatley relayed. The woman told Whatley she was crying and telling Macias tostop, but he continued in his as sault 10 times. Whatley said a search of the private residence where the al leged assault took place revealeda broomstick with feces on theend of the handle. It was takeninto evidence, he said. Further, the woman’s marks and bruises, and a cut inside herlip, were recorded as evidence,he added. Macias was interviewed early on Wednesday morning of lastweek. Whatley said the suspect con firmed the couple had argued,but denied ever touching orthreatening the woman. He admitted to the act with the broom, the lieutenant said,but said it was consensual and atthe woman’s request. Macias was charged and booked into the jail. Dear Editor: It is clear from the “Is it a Fer tilizer Plant?” article that a greatdeal of misinformation existsabout fertilizer plants. For the record, in regards to Florida Fertilizer Co. Inc., let mecorrect the following errors thatwere in the May 7 article: 1) Florida Fertilizer Company, based in Wauchula since1959, is what is known in the in dustry as a blender. That meanswe buy macro and micro plantnutrients in bulk from othercompanies and mix them into acustom blend designed for thespecific nutrient needs of agrower’s crop. We are not an in dustrial manufacturer of nitro gen fertilizers. 2) Florida Fertilizer does not and has never used anhydrousammonia in our operations; hasno complex chemical process;no reactors; no secrets, and 3) Our old plant did not burn down from a sludge fire. We up graded our operations 11 yearsago by building a more efficientplant. I encourage the County Com mission and staff to review the North American Industry Clas sification System (NAICS)which is the standard used byFederal statistical agencies inclassifying business establish ments. Florida Fertilizer NAICScode is 325314 — we fall underthe category of Fertilizer (Mix ing Only) Manufacturing whichcomprise establishments prima rily en-gaged in mixing ingredi ents made elsewhere intofertilizers. Florida Fertilizer is a familyowned Hardee County business.We help feed a growing, hungryworld. We are proud to be part of this community and I invite Com missioners and their staff to visitwith us. I look forward to talkingwith them about our industry.Thank you for allowing me toset the record straight. SincerelyEdgar L. DavisPresidentFlorida Fertilizer Co.

A little girl was trying to hug her father, but he was too tall.“Bend down, Daddy,” shecried, “so I can reach you.” Before God sent His Son into the world, He too,seemed beyond our reach.God the Father became Godthe Son and lived among usso we could come to knowand understand Him. Godbecame Man in the Person ofHis Son. Like us, He was born of a woman. But unlike us, Hehad no earthly father. His life, which began with out sin, was lived without sin.He went about doing goodfor all – healing the sick andproviding hope for the crisesof life. After all of the goodthat He did, He voluntarilywent to the cross and died forour sins, expressing the loveof God, His Father. He’s the same today. Right now, as always, He’s reach ing out to us with His endur ing and unending love.

May 15, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A number to dwindle a little aftersome prospects feel the Mayheat and the physical demandsof the practices. He said his goal during the spring is to work on fundamen tals, determine which playerswill be on the varsity squad inthe fall and to establish thestarter and backup player forevery position. “We want the players to leave spring committed to the teamand bought into the program,”he said. Martin lost 17 seniors from last year’s team and said he willhave another large senior classthis season with about 17 currentjuniors. Offensively the Cats will be very similar while looking to re place the quarterback, wide re ceiver, left tackle, center andtight end. Rising sophomore Hayden Lindsey and rising junior MarcoDeleon will compete for thequarterback position. At wide receiver Martin said Trequan Holley, Derrick Gra-ham and Dalton Bethea will look to fill the position. Martin expects Jose Gonzalez to take over at center andtransfer Hunter Balknight couldtake over at tackle. Four returning linemen had some playing time last year andhe expects Devin Pearson, Bla iaine Molitor, Kevin White andDebo McMillian to be solid con tributors. Roby Parris will look to take over the tight end duties alongwith McMillian, who could playsome at guard or tight end ifneeded. On defense Martin will look to replace his entire defensiveline, an inside and outside line backer and a cornerback. Hesaid the defensive line will bethe biggest hole to fill and heplans to mix in a lot of differentpeople at the positions. At linebacker he expects Parker Carlton and Derrick Gra ham to play alongside re-turningstarter Keyonte Holley. So far, Martin felt he has had the best January through Apriloffseason with strength andspeed conditioning he has had since becoming the coach. Martin said at least four play ers are drawing attention fromcollege scouts. Running back/linebacker Holley and receiver/linebackerGraham both have multiple Di vision 1 offers already and line men Molitor and Pearson arealso starting to catch the eye ofcollege coaches and scouts. The coaching staff will be very similar as last season, withRashad Faison, who moved outof the county, the only personnot returning. Justin English and Lee Thomas will be new additions tothe staff and will join Dale Carl ton, Steve Rewis, Rod Smith,Barry White, Uvaldo Sanchez,Chris Cook, Shawn Rivers andTravis Tubbs. The team is having a chicken dinner fundraiser Friday nightbefore the game and tickets canbe purchased from any footballplayer. Dinners are $10 and canbe eaten inside the stadium orpicked up and taken home. Admission to the Orange and Blue game is $2, or free for any one who buys a dinner. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Fans can get their first glimpse of the 2014 HardeeWildcat football team on Fridaynight at 7 as the annual springOrange and Blue game takesplace at Wildcat Stadium. The scrimmage will let play ers show off some of the im-provements made over thespring practices, which beganMay 1, before hosting PortCharlotte for the spring jam boree on May 23. The Pirates beat Hardee in Port Charlotte last year 27-7 inthe spring game. The Wildcats are coming off an 11-2 record last season andadvanced into the third round ofthe state playoffs before losingto eventual state champion Plan tation American Heritage. Head Coach Buddy Martin, entering his fifth season, is look ing to replace five starters on of fense and six on the defensiveside of the ball. Martin reported 62 players came out for the first day ofpractice but he expects that Orange & Blue Game Friday Collecting Q: I travel a great deal for work andgather matchbookswhenever I find them.They are free and funto collect. Is there aguide to determine if Ihave any rarities? —Carl, Port Orange, Fla. A: The great thing about collecting matchbooks is— as you mentioned — a fairlygood collection can be built withlittle or no money. That alsoseems to translate in prices whenthey pop up in the marketplace.During a recent visit to a majorantique mall, I spotted a largeplastic bag of several hundredmatchbooks priced for $5. As Ioften write in this column, thereare always exceptions. A match book from the Stork Club inNew York would more thanlikely be worth its weight ingold. One of the better references that I have found is "The Match cover Collector's Price Guide"by Bill Retskin and published byAntique Trader Books. Thisguide features more than 10,000matchcover descriptions and es timated values in over 150 cate gories, from airlines to zoos. Incidentally, the first match book was created in 1889 andquickly became one of the pre mier advertising vehicles of the20th century. Q: I have played golf for most of my adult life and havea collection of vintage clubs,balls and even tournament badges from the 1950s.How can I find outhow much my collec tion is worth? —Dick, Macon, Ga. A: The "Official Price Guide to Golf Col lectibles" by EdwardKiersh and published byHouse of Collectibles is fairly comprehensive, yet easy to navigate. In additionto current prices, Kiersh, editorof "Golf Course Register," ex plains what makes a golf col lectible valuable. He also adviseshow to make purchases on theInternet, and even provides tipson how to preserve, store anddisplay golf collectibles. Q: I was a member of the Playboy Club in Chicago dur ing the 1960s. In addition toPlayboy Magazine, I also man aged to collect and save relatedmaterials such as ashtrays, keychains, shot glasses and calen dars. Whom can I contact tofind others who collect? —Art, Paterson, N.J. A: Tom Bonner is president of the Playboy Collectors Club ofAmerica, P.O. Box 653, Phillips burg, MO 65722.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O. Box 536475, Or lando, FL 32853-6475, or sende-mail to questionsforcox@-aol.com.

By Larry Cox By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Few can say they graduated from high school and college atthe same time. Angela Herron is one of those few. Angela, the daughter of Doug and Carla Herron, is currently asenior at Hardee Senior HighSchool and is on track to gradu ate with the Class of 2014 onJune 7. Although she does not offi cially have her Associate of ArtsDegree, she recently participatedin the commencement exercisesat South Florida State College.She will complete her AA de gree over the summer. She is the only dual-enroll ment student to conquer this taskthis year. At first Angela started taking DE classes as a way of gettingcollege pre-requisite courses“out of the way.” She thenlearned that by earning a statecollege AA, she would haveguaranteed acceptance into astate university. Her “admittedly proud fa ther,” Doug Herron, says that itwas after learning this that she decided to pursue her degree. Hethinks she took it as a personalchallenge, wanting to prove toherself that she could do it. Even though she focused on her academics to be able to ac complish this task, Angela stillhad time for some extracurricu lar activities. In her freshmanyear she played volleyball, wason the weightlifting team andran track both her freshman andsophomore years. Angela wasalso first runner-up in the 2013Miss Hardee County Pageant. She is currently a member of the National Honor Society atHHS and Phi Beta Kappa HonorSociety at SFSC. All Angela’s hard work has paid off, as she has been ac cepted to Florida State Univer sity’s special educationprogram. In the fall, she will start as a junior and work toward com pleting her Bachelor’s and Mas ter’s degrees in specialeducation over the next threeyears. Her hope is to one day be come a special needs teacher forkids with Down Syndrome andother profound disabilities. Local Teen A Dual Grad!

Florida Crop Update Week Ending: May 11, 2014 Fieldwork Resumes Where Possible Weather Summary: According to Florida’s Automated Weather Network (FAWN), two locations, Arcadia (DeSoto County)and Ona (Hardee County) received an inch of rain this past week.The most rain was received in Live Oak (Suwannee County) at 1.82inches. Maximum temperatures ranged from 83 to 93 degrees. Bron son (Levy County) received the highest temperature at 93 degrees.The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 52 degrees inLecanto (Citrus County) to 66 degrees in Fort Lauderdale (BrowardCounty). Field Crop: Farmers in the Panhandle and north Florida were two to four weeks behind schedule on planting field crops due toexcessively wet field conditions. In Jackson County, areas with highground were able to be planted in cotton and peanuts. In WaltonCounty no planting occurred due to wet fields. In WashingtonCounty a considerable amount of replanting of cotton and peanutstook place. Dixie County farmers were able to plant corn andpeanuts. Levy County farmers have been able to plant 95% of theirpeanuts. Statewide, peanut planting was 29 percent complete, behindlast year’s 32 percent and the 5-year average of 38 percent. Citrus: Rainfall in the citrus producing area this past wee k was sparse and scattered. Eight stations received some precipitation, butonly two received more than a tenth of an inch. Ona (HardeeCounty) received the most at 0.98 inches followed by Arcadia (DeS oto County) with 0.88 inches received. Daytime high temperatureswere warm, reaching the low 90s in all citrus producing counties.As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last updated May 6, 2014, nodrought exists within the citrus growing area. The rainfall over the past several weeks has been beneficial. Some of the healthier and well cared for trees are showing lots ofnew growth; unfortunately those heavily affected by greening arethinning out or dying. Next season’s crop is progressing well withoranges marble size or bigger and grapefruit slightly larger. Hedg-ing and topping is complete in most areas. Growers and caretakersare applying nutritional and post bloom sprays, fertilizing, irrigating,and in some cases resetting new trees. Processing plants are primarily running only Valencia oranges from now until the end of the season. Several packinghouses havefinished for the season with a few still taking small amounts of lateoranges. Fruit and Vegetables: Watermelon harvest is going strong in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, and Lee counties. Potatoes andthe last of the cabbage were being harvested in Flagler and Putnamcounties. Bradford County farmers were harvesting the last of thestrawberries. Blueberry growers in Charlotte and Glades Countygrowers were moving to u-pick as the season winds down. Cropsplanted in Miami-Dade County were boniato, malanga, okra, andbitter melon. Farmers in Miami-Dade, Charlotte, Collier, Glades,Hendry, and Lee counties continued to irrigate all crops as needed.Miami-Dade County farmers were harvesting boniato, bitter melon,green beans, yellow squash, malanga, okra, and zucchini. Vegetablesand fruits coming to market in the southwest were blueberries, col lards, cucumbers, eggplant, herbs, kale, lettuce, peppers, snap beans,squash, tomatoes, watermelons, and specialty items. Livestock and Pastures: Pastures remain wet in the Panhandle for another week. Pasture quality in southwest Florida have declineddue to the hot, dry, breezy conditions of the last week.

Why do I have to dothis? It sounds like a money making scheme for the vet andthe pharmaceutical industry. —Gary in Cincinnati DEAR GARY: It's not a mon eymaking scheme. Trust me, youdo not want your pets to sufferfrom the complications thatheartworm infestation can cause.Heartworm in dogs is often fatal,and while cats are less likely todie from it, they too suffer prob lems due to the damage caused by the worms as they travelthrough blood vessels and or gans. Hundreds of worms canlive in a dog's blood vessels —ultimately traveling to the cham bers of the heart — for as long asseven years. It's also somewhat easy for un treated dogs and cats to becomeinfested with heartworm. Theparasite is carried by mosquitoesand can be passed along whenthe mosquito bites your pet. Petsare at highest risk in the summer,when it's hot and humid — primetime for mosquitoes. Give your pets their heart worm medication at the recom mended dose for their breed andsize, or as specified by the vet.Most heartworm medicines mustbe given once a month. For pet owners whose dog has never been tested for heartworm,get this test at the vet's office be fore starting treatment for heart worm. If the dog already hasheartworm, the vet will need totreat it in a different way to pre vent problems.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

8A The Herald-Advocate, May 15, 2014 Dear Editor: As I mentioned in my last let ter the countdown has nowbegun on the Ona Mine. As ofthe end of March the permit ap plication for the 22,400 acremine is in the hands of theFlorida Department of Envi-ronmental Protection (FDEP)which, as far as I am aware, hasnever failed to approve a phos phate mine. They will probablyoffer their approval within thenext two months. Subsequentlythe Hardee County Board ofCommissioners will be asked toapprove the necessary zoningchanges. Currently there are three more phosphate strip mine permitsawaiting approval by the USArmy Corps of Engineers total ing 51,754 acres (81 sq mi’s).The borders of three of thesefour mines (Wingate East, Onaand South Pasture) are contigu ous and will therefore appear ona map as one vast mine impact ing 33,467 acres (52 sq mi’s) ofwest central Florida — a regionalready subjected to a century ofphosphate strip mining — mostof it not reclaimed, or inade quately reclaimed. The duration of the mining ac tivity proposed in these four per mits, if approved, would extendbetween 20 to 45 years into thefuture. To initiate four permitssimultaneously is un-prece dented in the history of Floridaphosphate strip mining regula tion and arguably represents thesingle most devastating assaulton the natural environment thestate has had to face. In 2002 when IMC first began seeking approval for the OnaMine, the Hardee County Boardof Commissioners actually dis played a willingness to try toprotect the interests of thecounty from the grip of thephosphate industry. They com missioned one of the country’smost prestigious environmentalengineering firms (Hazen andSawyer) to prepare a study of the effect of the Ona Mine onthe county’s economy. The report was finalized in 2003 and is available for publicinspection at the county office ofthe Mining Coodinator. The re port called the “Economic Im pact of the Ona Mine to HardeeCounty” is quite lengthy andtechnical, but it contains a num ber of graphs which make its re sults quite obvious to even anuneducated eye. The dark line on the graph shows the progression of “totalincome” to Hardee County. Thisfigure rises from less than $5million in the first five years ofmining to about $28 millionfrom the tenth year till the end ofthe life of the mine. Then lookwhat happens … The total in come plummets to a level that isbelow what it was before themining took place, and evengoes below that — where it re mains for the rest of time (or 50years on the graph). The light line on the graph represents total income toHardee County if no miningtakes place. The total incomenever soars to the heights illus trated on the graph during thelife of the mine, but it risessteadily for the next 50 yearsreaching $20 million. Why does the income plum met after mining? Not only isthere a sudden dearth of jobs inthe county, but the once produc tive agricultural land which pro vided work is then dominated byClay Waste Disposal sites whichoccupy 40% of all phosphatemine sites and is unsuitable forall but the most marginal of agri cultural endeavors. Does our current board of commissioners realize that theHazen and Sawyer study on theeconomic impact of the OnaMine even exists? Will the re sults of this study influence theirevaluation of the Ona Mine, orwill they respond merely to thefantasy world of “environmentalstewardship” promulgated in the barrage of Mosaic’s deceptivemedia advertisements? Please visit our website for more information on the adverseeffects of phosphate strip min ing: www.protect-peaceriver.org Dennis MaderExecutive Director(3PR) People for Protecting Peace River Lily Mosaic’s Response toDennis Mader’s Letter tothe Editor: At Mosaic, we feel it is impor tant to provide members of thecommunity updated and factualinformation about our opera tions in Central Florida. For thisreason, we provide the follow ing information in re-sponse toa Letter to the Editor by DennisMader. In his letter, Mr. Mader relies on a decade-old study by an en gineering firm to argue againstthe economic wisdom of ourcontinuing operations in HardeeCounty. What he omits is thefact that a more recent and morein-depth economic analysis wasconducted at the request ofHardee County by the presti gious ECONorthwest Com-pany. This 40-page studyconcluded that our continuedoperations represent a stronglong-term economic benefit tothe community. This thoroughstudy can be obtained throughHardee County, but we’ve alsoposted a copy on our local web site, www.mosaicinhardee.com. Mr. Mader further argues that reclaimed land has little post-mining use. He refers to land notbeing reclaimed but never men tions that since 1975 we’ve beenrequired to reclaim every acrethat we touch. Much of the landwe reclaim becomes functioningwetlands, streams and wildlifehabitat, and is also used forrecreation, like Hardee LakesPark. There are many other ex amples in Hardee and adjacentcounties where re-claimed land is also used for cattle grazing,residential developments, indus trial parks or commercial cen ters, and agricultural operations,some of which are conducted onformer clay settling areas. The Streamsong Resort in south Polk County adjacent tothe Hardee County line is one ofthe more recent examples of ahighly valued use of formerly mined land. This golf resort, spaand conference center today em ploys more than 300 people. Mr. Mader also fails to men tion that beyond the economicbenefits and taxes paid throughour operations, Mosaic has alsomade a substantial investment inHardee County. This fundingwill help the community plan forand achieve the most advanta geous economic future possible,while retaining the importantrural character that is key toHardee County’s special qualityof life. Our industry is an important part of the community’s past,present and future. Our employ ees and contract partners live,raise kids, and plan one day toretire in Hardee County.

He said the bonds would be issued through Deutsche Bankin New York and sold to in vestors as tax-fee municipalbonds. Cunningham said the IDA would be fully indemnified andprotected from any liability if itagreed to proceed with the bondissue. IDA attorney Ken Evers rec ommended the board have an at torney familiar with bond issuesread over the proposal beforecommitting to move forward.Evers said he does not have anobjection to it but felt more in formation was needed to betterunderstand the pro-cess. He felt a bond attorney would approve the resolution after re viewing it. Cunningham said Deutsche Bank would perform a feasibil ity study on the feedstock avail able in the area, urea demandand the profitability of the plantitself before issuing the bonds. Previously the IDA and Eco nomic Development Au-thorityagreed to each provide $1 mil lion in grants to build a rail spuron the proposed plant site onceconstruction has begun. Brian Kornegay, CEO of BioNitrogen, is now asking tohave to $2 million advanced, in stead of in conjunction with thebond issue, as previously agreedupon. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said the EDA grant canonly be done on a reimburse ment basis, but the IDA grantcould be modified. Lambert then went on to point out some inconsistencies in whatthe company has previouslypromised and some possible is sues related to the project mov ing forward. He said he was unsure on the status of the land purchase forthe proposed site, which thecompany agreed to pay $9.7million for 600 acres in De-cem ber 2012 from E.L. Davis off ofCR 663 (Fort Green/Ona Road). Lambert also said the $175 million bond issue the companywas originally approved for bythe state has since expired. BioNitrogen is also asking for a reduced power rate from PeaceRiver Electric Cooper-ative,which it has not received, Lam bert said. The board ultimately agreed by a 9-0 vote to seek the opinionof a bond attorney and recon sider the proposal during a spe cial meeting on May 27 at 1:30p.m. in the County Com-missionchambers. Donald Samuels declared a conflict of interest over his sonworking for the company and abstained from voting. After the vote he accused Lambert of trying to “cut thethroat of the project.” IDA Chairman Vanessa Hernandez then warned Samuelsabout making comments andtrying to influence board mem bers after declaring a conflict,and asked for more decorummoving forward. Discussions then turned to the IDA advancing the company the$1 million it agreed to contributeto the project. Her-nandez saidthe board can’t front the moneywithout knowing for sure theplant will get built or havingsome sort of security interest. Steven Southwell, a Wauchula attorney representingBioNitrogen, said if the boardwas looking for full collateral orno risk, then the company prob ably shouldn’t be in front of theIDA. Kornegay then proffered the money be advanced in the formof a 12-month loan that convertsto a grant at the time of the bondclosing. “If Hardee County is not will ing to use the tools it has in itstoolbox, then we will go to an other county,” he said. Kornegay said the company owns patents worth $15 millionit was willing to put up as collat eral. Hernandez said the board would be willing to look at alloptions and alternatives to movethe project forward. Kornegay said he just wanted to feel progress was being madeon the project and the commu nity as a whole supported it. The company has previously stated it would produce 124,000tons of liquid urea fertilizer an nually at the plant and provide atleast 50 well-paying jobs. 5!Of The Herald-Advocate A company planning to build a gasification plant in HardeeCounty to turn biomass into ureafertilizer has asked the IndustrialDevelopment Author-ity to issue$300 million in bonds to raisethe needed capital to constructthe facility. BioNitrogen is asking the IDA and the County Commis-sion to issue the bonds so it canqualify for federal tax exemp tions, according to Donald Cun-ningham, a lawyer from theJones Walker Law Firm inLouisiana representing the com pany in the bond issue. He asked the IDA to sign an inducement resolution to beginthe process, which the board didnot do Tuesday.

Jokes & Philosophies With A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas BASS PRO SHOP, WHOLE FOODS MARKET & ENGINEERING This week, I am once again turning my column over to Alyssa Hen derson, our prevention lieutenant and public information officer. Shemakes a good point. Enjoy! I seriously love Whole Foods Market, not because of the name brand Whole Foods has become or the fact that its prices are usuallyhigher (so it must be better, right?). Whole Foods is great because itgives you options. Options you can’t find anywhere else and theyare all under the same roof! Hooray! Whole Foods has nearly every gluten-free, peanut-free, dairyfree and non-gmo product that is out there. It also has a supplementcenter for anything that may ail you and a smoothie bar that is outof this world. My personal favorite is the “Green Dream.” If you have a food allergy, like I do, Whole Foods is nothing short of a miracle! If you are lucky enough to not suffer from a food allergy (and I do mean suffer ), perhaps you can relate more to another place I love, Bass Pro Shop? Where else in the world can you go where you can buy anything from boats to hunting gear to home decor? Don’t have enoughmoney for a boat? Why not buy a kayak? Have a coyote problem?Bass Pro has the solution! I once spent many, many hours in Bass Pro waiting fo r someone to pick out a fishing pole. Do you know how many fis hing poles Bass Pro has? I do. I saw each and every one of them! Whole Foods and Bass Pro are great because of the options they give us. I am sure you have never thought of it this way, but engi neers are great for the same reason. They give us options. Whether you are building a house or business, we all have ideas of what we want it to look like, what functions it will need to serveand, biggest of all, how much we can spend for it. The fabulous thing about engineers is that they design buildings to meet both what your specifications and needs are and what thecode requires. In other words, engineers are professionals at design ing buildings and have the time and expertise to explore options foryou. Many people ask the building official and me what the require ments are to build their building. Our answer usually is “it depends.”I promise we aren’t trying to avoid the question or have somethingelse to do, like play solitaire! When designing a building there are so many variables and so many different ways you can meet the code requirements that it’shard to sum up in a quick conversation what the requirements are— much less the time we would have to spend researching it. Plus, our license and expertise is in inspecting and making sure the building meets code; where as an engineer’s license and expert ise is in designing. So, when you think about it, do you really want someone who isn’t licensed to design your building? Oh, and just in case you are still wondering, there are 1,247 fishing poles at Bass Pro!

May 15, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Local Blueberry Grower Has Productive Season By JIM KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate 2014 has been a great year of production for the five-acreblueberry field on BarkdollRoad north of Hwy. 62 inHardee County, said owner Ed ward Parker on Monday. He andhis wife Enid also have a 15-acre field of blueberries in FortMeade. The final days of U-pick will be Friday and Saturday from 9to 6. Then he will cut the bushesback to about 2 1/2 to 3 feethigh so they will put on a lot ofnew growth and have a bigbloom in January and February.The blueberries are on first-yeargrowth. Parker started picking his field on April 2 when prices were $7to $8 a pound. Blueberries areconsidered a super fruit in termsof taste and nutrition. Prices remained strong for three weeks when the fruitdropped to $5 a pound. “Four toseven dollars a pound is consid ered top of the market,” saidParker. The family has threesons and live in Avon Park. The U-pick prices are $2.50 a pound, or pre-picked for $4.50 apound. On Monday Parker had 41 pickers in the five-acre field ona bulk sale to a buyer in Ala bama. The price was $1.98 apound — a dollar to the pickerand 98 cents for the grower. There are two varieties: emer alds which are flatter andsweeter and jewels which areshaped like a pearl and have aslightly tart taste to go with thesweet flavor. There are 10,000 plants which were put into the ground onAug. 15, 2012, on 15-foot rowsand double-set. One blueberryplant, depending on weather,growing conditions and care,can produce 2 1/2 to 10 poundsof berries. They are planted on pine bark mulch, which did cost $1,250for a 90-cubic yard load but nowcosts $2,500 since an ethanolplant opened near Gainesville. Monday was the 13th or 14th picking of the field. “Produc-tion exceeded our expectations.” Parker plans to have a big cooler in operation by next sea son. Blueberries stored at 34 de grees can last 30 days. Yield of blueberries can be 3,000 to 8,000 pounds per acre. Proper fertilizer, moisture and spraying are essential. Enemiesinclude maggots, birds, anthrac nose, and flower thrips. Sometimes flocks of cedar waxwing birds come and can eatand/or destroy 200 to 300pounds of berries a day. he usespropane-powered cannons fornoise and recorded predator birdcalls to help chase the birdsaway. The calls were more ef fective this year and includedhawks, eagles, seagulls and thescream of a bird being attacked. Pine bark mulch lasts longer in the soil than most other woodchips and helps bring down thesoil pH to 5.5, preferred by blue berries and azaleas. Parker estimates there are five major blueberry growers inHardee County with a total ofabout 140 acres. He uses beesfor pollinators. Desoto andHighlands counties have blue berry acreage. Polk County hasover 1,000 acres. After blueberry production ends in Chile, the area of Arca dia to Plant City generally has afour-week window of opportu nity for high prices betweenmid-April and mid-May, saidParker. Even though his bushes will still have plenty of fruit on themthey will be cut way back nextweek to achieve the early bloomin January and February whichyields ripe fruit for the severalweeks of prime prices in Apriland early May. Parker believes there is room for growth in the blueberry in dustry in this area. Some smallgrowers have bad luck and haveclosed their fields. Blueberry consumption is growing nationwide, and theyare good to eat as fresh fruit orin pancakes, muffins, pies, andcobblers or as part of a mixedfruit salad.

It needs help in general. It needs honesty, truth and most importantly God. Peopleneed to get up off their backsideand stand up for what is right. All over the world people sit back and let others do as theyplease for fear of personal loss.Do they not know they will haveloss if they still do nothing? I have had my share with our county’s public officials who sitin office and twiddle theirthumbs. They act all concernedto your face, but really that is asfar as it gets...they act. I have scheduled an appoint ment and attempted to be seen,but no one showed up or evencalled to cancel. Great commu nications skills—right? Howconcerned are the public offi cials in any offices of HardeeCounty? Especially the SchoolBoard. People in any office see and hear only who they want to dealwith. They have their fa vorites...everywhere. They pickand choose what is beneficial forthemselves. They make jobs forwho they want. They can change rules and rewrite what they want. It doesnot matter if they are on anyboard of directors. It does notmatter if they are deacons in thechurch. There will always be hyp ocrites and fake uncaring peo ple. Their only concern is forthem and their’s. There aremany things done in society forpersonal and political gain. Andland has always been an issuewith the government officials. Greed, money and power work in the hands of people withdark hearts. Intimidation andthreatening opposition are their tactics. God’s people need tostand up for all things that areright in our world. We the people do have a voice. We can speak up for theright. Do not sit back on yourhands and wait for others tovoice “your” opinion. Speak upand be heard— you can make adifference. People will come in and steal everything out from underyou— all the while you watchand do nothing. We might aswell hang our signs that say,“Take from me while I do noth ing.” Rights and freedoms are dis solving every day, because wedo not speak or make a stand onwhat is right. Our county andcountry need God! Politicians, be aware. If you tell lies and have deceit in youroffice, it will only be for a sea son of darkness, for God willbring out truth into the light. When voting time rolls around remember the brokenpromises of candidates in the of fice right now. Look at theirrecords of accomplishmentswhile they were in office. Didthey prosper for themselves ordid they look out for the peoplethey liked? Personal gains and rewards given out to themselves? Howabout their annual pay – did they receive their own personal raise?Or was their office held in con tempt? Did they work for thepeople or the county, state andpublic poorly or properly? Never be intimidated by oth ers with authority. How do theythink they received their job?From people like us. That’s us. If you do not voice opinions no one will read your mind, ormuch less want to. Get involvedwith your community. Attendmeetings. Support your cause.Use your voice. So what if people don’t like it or you? Their right, just like youhave your rights. Use yourrights. Voice them.

Infact, I don't think I want to. Butif forced to venture there in myimagination, it would be a landof drab salads, sauces, salsas anddressings. Onions pack so much flavor in the membranes of their spicy,sometimes sweet layers that, aswe all know, a little goes a longway. They sit at the pinnacle oftaste, right next to that otherbeloved allium, garlic. Onions,however, have a slight edge overgarlic in that they come in somany shapes and sizes, provid ing an imaginative cook a broadfield of opportunity. Late spring is when alliums of every kind are coming out of theearth. And while many varietiesof onions keep for months incool, dry storage, fresh onionsare a taste treat not to be missed.Right now, you'll find leeks; red,white and yellow bulb onions;scallions, also known as greenonions; and shallots at your localfarmer's market. Start there ifyou can. But if not, your localgrocery would have to shut itsdoors if it couldn't provide a de cent supply and variety ofonions. Also, to be clear about a con KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow tinuing confusion, there is no dif ference between scallions andgreen onions — it's simply twonames for the same allium. Thereis a difference, however, betweenscallions (green onions) andspring onions. Spring onions arevery young bulb onions, such asthe white, yellow or red variety. You can tell the difference be tween a spring onion and a scal lion by the size of the bulb. Thebulb of a spring onion will be fatand round, while the scallion/green onion will be thin and nar row. When shopping for anyonion, make sure the bulb feelsfirm to the touch. With green orspring onions, look for thosewith firm, straight stalks. Theyshould still be bright in colorwith springy roots sproutingfrom the bulb end. A wonderful distinction of the scallion/green onion is that itprovides a combination of nutri tional benefits — those of onionsas well as greens. It also has anunmistakable flavor, separatefrom other bulb onions. The white of young bulb onions, as well as scallions, isusually sharper than that of largebulb onions, and the more fi brous green stalk has a hot, un mistakable mineral flavor thatcan punch up a dish in no time.When heated, though, those traits become even more interesting, asthe hot and sharp turns a littlesoft and sweet. This flavorfultrait is what makes my recipe forButtered White Fish withCharred Scallions so delicious. Buttered White Fish With Charred Scallions Charring the scallions in a hot skillet adds a depth of flavor thatenhances the fish.

By Carolyn Hendry Wyatt Extension Agent MAY IS TEEN PREGNANCY PREVENTION MONTH — SO WHAT? Have you ever found yourself asking this question?Why is so much emphasis placed on this issue when you don’t even have children, your children are grown, or you have never evenknown a teen parent? Is this whole issue of teen pregnancy over-dramatized and blown out of proportion? Since the month of May is National Teen Pregnancy Prevention Month, I thought we should take a look at this issue and you candraw your own conclusions. First, let’s look at the children born to teen mothers:< )&$)*-%3&/0'5&&/.05)&34"3&.03&-*,&-:50#/13& maturely and at low birth weight, raising the probability of infantdeath, blindness, deafness, chronic respiratory pro blems, mental re tardation, mental illness, cerebral palsy, dyslexia, and h yperactivity. <)*-%3&/0'5&&/.05)&34%08034&*/4$)00-5)"/5)04/ to older parents.

Secondly, let’s look at the teen mothers of these children:< &&/.05)&34"3&-&44-*,&-:50$0.1-&5&5)&&%6$"5*0//&$ &44"3:5026"-*':'03"8&--1":*/(+0#/-:1&3$&/50'.05)&348)0)"7&$)*-%3&/#&'03&"(&&7&3$0.1-&5&)*()4$)00-$0. 1"3&%8*5)1&3$&/50'4*.*-"3-:4*56"5&%:06/(80.&/8)0%&-":$)*-%#&"3*/(6/5*-"(&n03n <0.1"3&%5080.&/0'4*.*-"340$*0&$0/0.*$45"5648)0 postpone childbearing, teen mothers are more likely to end up onwelfare. <-.0450/&)"-'0'"--5&&/.05)&34"/%07&35)3&&26"35&34 of unmarried teen mothers began receiving welfare within five yearsof the birth of their first child. <0.&rn1&3$&/50'"--.05)&340/8&-'"3&)"%5)&*3'*345$)*-% as a teenager. < 805)*3%40''".*-*&4#&(6/#:":06/(6/."33*&%.05)&3 are poor. < &&/.05)&34"3&-*,&-:50)"7&"4&$0/%#*35)3&-"5*7&-:400/ #0650/&'0635)0'5&&/"(&.05)&34)"7&"4&$0/%$)*-%8*5)*/nmonths of the first birth, which can further impede their ability tofinish school or keep a job, and to escape poverty.

I hope after reading this far you have been able to understand the importance of being concerned about the issue of teen preg nancy. Not only does teen childbearing have serious consequences for teen parents, their children and society, it also has important eco nomic consequences. Helping young women avoid too-early preg nancy and childbearing — and young men avoid prematurefatherhood — is easier and much more cost effective than dealingwith all of the problems that occur after the babies are born. When children have children, their opportunities are diminished right from the start, and their future is often one of poverty. That’snot good for business. The business community has a vested interestin preventing teen pregnancy and childbearing because of the asso ciated financial, social and workforce-related consequences. If teens can delay parenthood, they will have the time and re sources they need for their education and training, which are crucialto a productive workforce in an increasingly high-tech world.

Itook on the task of selling theirhome so that they can continueto fund their new situation.However, the real-estate bro ker who I initially contactedsaid the house is in too poor acondition to sell. I don't havethe time or money to fix uptheir house. What can I do? —Charly, via email A: Did the broker give you any indication of why he or shefelt the house couldn't be sold inits current condition? If not, con tact the broker to find out whatspecific things stood out. If youdon't get answers, contact an other real-estate firm to come seethe house and find out if it's re ally unsellable. I don't have any specifics as to the home's condition from yourletter, but to an agent or brokertrying to sell your home, appear ance is very important. Is the in side of the home very cluttered?Is there damage to interior walls,visible mold, large cracks orother immediately noticeable is sues? Is the exterior of the homein need of paint or repairs to thesiding, roof, steps or walkways?These all affect the home's saleprice and can make it sit on themarket longer than anyonewould like. Houses can sell in any condi tion — but the price will take ahit if it needs a lot of work. Ivividly recall being shown atriple-decker in East Boston sev eral years ago with foundationproblems so bad, the structurewas tilting at an alarming angle.The house sold, but at about one-third the average price for homesin that neighborhood. If the house is structurally sound, you may be able to raiseits sale price by investing some time and sweat into fresheningup its appearance, outside and in.A fresh coat of paint alone canmake a home's value jump, andit's not a huge investment.

Tonight (Thursday), the Hardee Senior High School Blue Star Brigade concert band will be entertaining everyone with their final concert of the 201314 school year. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the school au ditorium, and will be under the direction of Michael Hill. On Sunday, Youth Pastor Trent Livingstone will be travel ing from Kissimmee to New Hope Baptist Church. The church has been without a youth pastor since Pastor Justin Wor den and family felt their call to serve in Alabama several months ago. Pastor Livingstone will be leading the morning wor ship service, coming as a prospective youth leader for the church. It was good to hear that Mitch and Judy Marsh were able to return stateside from Nicaragua so that she could obtain necessary medical care. Please re-member to pray for them daily and for the next mission team that will be going to Grenada in a few weeks from New Hope Baptist Church. Gollia Ford, who has been the Hardee Senior High School main office receptionist for many years, recently retired. She has gone straight into a serious medical situation with a total hip replacement that was done on Tuesday of last week. She re portedly is doing well, but covets our prayers. Longtime friends Eddie and Jean Wilson are also on our prayer list as Eddie recovers from heart surgery and Jean is coping with lung issues. May God bless you both. Continued prayers have been asked for Rod and Emily Wilson Louracy, of Texas, as they find inner healing after the re cent loss of their daughter, Martha Grace. May God grant peace and healing of their hearts and souls. Others on our prayer list this week are: Tom Robinson, Shirley Knight, Doyle Bryan and Frances Daves. Many have other immediate needs and other needs that may be un-known to us, but if the Lord puts someone on your heart, no matter when, please take time to pray for them.

8C The Herald-Advocate, May 15, 2014 Well, spring sports came to a crashing halt last week. The girls softball team went further than anyone could have an ticipate at the start of the 2014 season. With only three seniors, first-year Coach Caitlyn Bliss challenged her players and they re-spondedwith a district championship and wins in the first and second roundsof the regional playoffs. Unfortunately, a rainout on Friday, May 2led to a makeup game that Monday evening, with another long trekto Bradenton to play against Bayshore, which won to go on to theelite four in the state playoffs. Hardee’s advancement to the top eight in the state is a preview of what’s to come, says Bliss, who will return a seasoned crew nextyear and will continue the team slogan, “We will not stop.” Theyaim for a state championship next season and will be competitivefor years to come with the grass roots youth softball program alreadyin place. ——— Boys baseball also came to an abrupt stop in an eight-inning marathon, which began after 9:30 p.m. when early rains flooded thefield and required a lot of draining and repair to make it playable.The game should have been rescheduled as the girls was, but CapeCoral insisted on playing and the umpires supported that request.Hardee lost, and will lose 11 seniors on this year’s squad, whichcompiled a 21-4 record and a district championship along the way. ——— The only other high school spring sport is football. Players are on the practice field and gearing up for the annual Orange-Bluegame tomorrow (Friday) night at Wildcat Stadium. The annualSpring Classic will also be at home, on May 23, beginning at 7 p.m.,against the visiting Port Charlotte Pirates. When football is over, work will begin on upgrades at the sta dium. The School Board recently approved bids for stadium boxrenovations and painting. Later in the summer, the track will be im proved as well. ——— Now, it’s down to community sports. Men’s Church League is winding down, but Women’s Church League and Men’s CommunityLeague may be starting their summer seasons soon. ——— For hoop fans, there is a summer youth basketball “skills and drills” and games. Registration for the Hardee Hoops Develop-men tal League is on Friday, May 16 from 3:30 to 7 p.m. at the HardeeJunior High School gymnasium, which is reached off Keeton Roadsouth of the school.
