His Army buddy, Fort Green resident Randy Gilliard, is in Atlanta preparing to save his life tomorrow by donating a kidney. Lest We Forget11 By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate So far, only one of five in cumbents up for re-election has not sparked any opposition. Thomas Trevino, School Board member for District 5, has no challengers to date. But as the deadline for placing ones name on the ballot by the voter-petition method passed on Monday at noon, four other in cumbents are in for a race to keep their seats. County Commission District 2 incumbent Sue Birge, a Republican, is opposed by three political hopefuls, Steven Plummer II, Daniel Graham and Judy Wilson. Plummer is a Democrat, while Graham and Wilson are both Republicans. Grady Johnson, the incum bent county commissioner for District 4 and a Republican, faces two opponents, Republican Russell Melendy and Democrat Allen Ellison. For the School Board, which is a non-partisan race, District 1 member Paul Samuels is being challenged by Andrew Smith. In District 4, veteran member Jan Platt has two contenders, Eugenia Larsen and Garry McWhorter. Again, District 5s Trevino re mains alone on the roster to date. That may change when the of ficial qualifying period opens on Monday, June 16. It will run for a full week. At that time, however, potential candidates will have to pay a qualifying fee. By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate A May 13 vehicle crash which already had taken one teens life claimed another on Saturday. Justin Garza, 19, of Wauchula, died at Lakeland Regional Medical Center after being transported there in criti cal condition on Tuesday of last week, says an updated Florida Highway Patrol report. The single-vehicle crash first took 19-year-old Tyshon Hillards life. He succumbed to his injuries on the same day as the wreck, FHP crash investigator Trp. William J. Delany and homicide investigator Cpl. K. Benavidez said. The third occupant, Manuel Juarez, 22, was taken to Florida Hospital Wauchula in serious condition. The accident happened around 1:20 a.m. on State Road 64 and West Main Street, near Charlottes Webb. FHP said the car was a 2003 Cadillac CTS, al though it is still unknown who was driving the vehicle. The report says the Cadillac was going east on SR 64 when, for an unknown reason, the car went across the westbound lane See CRASH 2A By JOAN SEAMAN Of The Herald-Advocate Theres a new, improved way to make sure you get in on all the important alerts for Hardee County. Text, Facebook, Twitter, cell phone or landline, the Hardee County Sheriffs Office is literally reaching out to ensure that everyone living or working in the county can receive instant notification of any emergency that might concern them. The new Hyper-Reach mass notification system enables law e nforcement to notify hundreds of people instantly when necessary. It could be severe weather, such as a tornado watch or warn ing; evacuations because of power outages, flood or an envi ronmental or chemical hazard; a jail or prison escapee; an armed shooter; wild animals, such as a bear or panther roaming the neighborhood; an Am-ber or Sil ver alert for a missing child or elderly resident; or anything that places a resident or county visit or at risk. The system is only as good as the residents who use it. The best way to be sure is to register online at hardeeso.com., says Gerald Shackelford, systems administrator with the Hardee County Sheriffs Office. People can also enroll by going to the website www.usnear.org. He noted that many homes no longer have a landline. Even those that do need to be sure their number is updated in the Sheriffs Office database, espec ially if they have moved or got ten a new number. People also need to register their cell phone, Facebook or twitter, so that theres an associated ad-dress for an alert in their area. The new system replaces an old, antique, worn-out system, that has aged beyond its use. With it, we could only notify 10 or 15 people at one time and it took hours to reach the 300 or 400 hundred in a specific area, See HIGH-TECH 2A By MARIA TRUJILLO Of The Herald-Advocate Ever wanted to help someone and then donated blood? How about giving an organ? Fort Green resident Randy Gilliard is stepping up to save a friends life by doing just that. He is donating a kidney. His old Army buddy, Larry Morse of Meldrim, Ga., was born with only one functioning kidney and is now in end-stage kidney failure. Upon hearing this news, Gilliard decided to get checked out and see if he could be the one to donate the vital organ to Morse. Gilliard had to undergo a number of exams, such as blood tests, stress tests, an electrocardiogram (EKG) and more, to see if Morses body would accept one of his kidneys. He says he has never been seriously ill, other than having his appendix taken out, so he was optimistic of being healthy enough to do nate. After all of the tests, he was told he was a match and would be able to give a kidney. When asked why he even considered doing so, Gilliard said Morse was a very good friend and its the right thing to do. He also said he never had any doubts about going through with this life-saving procedure. The two met in Germany when they were stationed there with the U.S. Army. Gilliard was a combat engineer and Morse was a helicopter me-chanic. When Gilliard left Germany, he continued to stay in contact with his friend. The men have even fished and hunted together. Soon Gilliard and Morse wil See KIDNEY 11Al By CYNTHIA KRAHL Of The Herald-Advocate Graduation prank gone wrong or pure thuggery? Regardless, three teens are under arrest and have been charged with trashing Hardee Senior High School early Tuesday morning. Two additional suspects remain to be charged. Among the exploits of the five, captured on video surveillance cameras which are sta tioned throughout the campus, are the discharge of five fire extinguishers, coating every inch of flooring and furnishings in the gymnasium; draining of juice bottles on the wooden gym floor; posting of large porno graphic pictures on walls everywhere; damage to a golf cart used by the school resource officer; release of five cows from the ag barn; placement of a hog carcass in the middle of the commons area; and other breakins and similar damages. The five vandals obscured their faces from view with masks and with clothing.

The 5-A Hardee High School Wildcat football team this Friday at 7:30 will host the strong 7-A Port Charlotte Pirates at Hardee Sta dium. Last year the Cats looked bad in the Spring game at Port Char lotte but had a great 2013 season, reaching the final eight and finishing 11-2 despite an opening game loss at home to Fort Meade. The 2014 Wildcats show promise at quarterback and have two potential all-state players in running back/linebacker Keyonte Holley and wide receiver Derrick Graham. The city of Bowling Green may be getting a permanent fire/res cue building and a Community Redevelopment Area that will bring in more ad valorem taxes at the expense of the County Commission. Wauchula has had a successful CRA for a number of years. Wauchula attorney Candace Collins Preston has recently moved and accepted a prosecutors job with the state attorney in the Fifth District in the Brooksville area. Highlands County attorney Brandon S. Craig is now working in Wauchula with his law partner Cliff Ables. An approximate going legal rate here can be $200 an hour, more with specialized attorneys. In the Lakeland Tiger Trot 5-K Saturday Regan Durastanti Dav enport and her two sons won trophies. Davenport finished fourth overall among women and No. 1 in the masters (40 and over) with a time of 21:29. Zander Durastanti finished third in age 10 and under at 23:40. Zack Durastanti finished second in the 11-14 age group at 19:57. Sean Brown of Wauchula finished fourth overall among men at 17:56. Jim Kelly of Bowling Green finished third in the 70-74 age group at 46:31. U.S. President Barack Obama and Catholic Pope Francis have recently spoken in favor of reducing wealth and income inequality in todays world. The president would like the federal minimum wage raised from $7.25 to $10.25. New York Times syndicated columnist Nicholas Kristof this week wrote the top 1 percent in the U.S. now own assets worth more than the bottom 99 percent of Americans, the six Wal-Mart heirs are worth as much as the bottom 41 percent of American households put together, and the top six hedge fund managers and traders averaged more than $2 billion each in earnings in 2013, partly because of the carried interest tax break. The U.S. Justice Department this week announced European bank Credit Suisse AG has pleaded guilty of helping wealthy Amer icans avoid paying taxes through secret offshore accounts and has agreed to pay a record criminal tax case penalty of about $2.6 billion. This is the largest bank to plead guilty in over 20 years, re ported Eric Tucker and Marcy Gordon of the Associated Press. Credit Suisse AG is the second largest bank in Switzerland and was being investigated for recruiting U.S. clients to open Swiss bank accounts and helping conceal the accounts from the Internal Revenue Service. There were accounts for over 22,000 U.S. clients totaling $10 billion to $12 billion. This Friday at 9 to 11:30 a.m. about 400 eighth graders at Hardee Junior High School will attend a Healthy Choices event at the auditorium. They will receive cooler bags from the Hardee County Alliance for Substance Abuse and Teen Pregnancy Prevention (ASAPP). ASAPP is sponsoring the event. Colon Lambert is chairman. ASAPP is funded by a federal grant of $125,000 annually for five years. This is the fourth year. Maria Pearson is ASAPP project coordinator. On June 6 ASAPP will sponsor a breakfast for 300 HHS seniors at the agri-civic center with special guest speaker Christina Martin who was paralyzed as a teen in a driving mishap. Congratulations to Florida Gov. Rick Scott for saying he will veto a legislative proposal to increase speed limits by 5 miles per hour on state highways. He is agreeing with law enforcement that Senate Bill 392 should not become law. Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Tod Cloud said the proposal was a bad idea. Higher speed limits result in more accidents, deaths and injuries. Our society is often too fast-paced. The recent AARP Bulletin reports researchers at the Yale School of Medicine and Oregon State University found nearly 23 percent of Medicare patients with multiple chronic conditions were taking at least one prescription medication that could adversely affect a coexisting condition. Nearly 3 out of 4 older Americans have two or more chronic health conditions which are often diagnosed and treated by different doctors. This situation points to the need for a consolidated medical re cords collection system app that is being worked on by LifeSync/Continuum Labs, the local economic development project that has received $7.25 million in public funds. AARP reports Nagano, located in Japan and the size of Con necticut, has the highest life expectancy in the world for its 2 million residents. Women there live an average of 87.2 years and men 80.9. In Connecticut the average lifespan is 82.9 for women and 78.6 for men. The lessons learned in Nagano include improving diet, staying active and working as you get older. Nagano also ranks No. 1 in the world in vegetable consumption per capita and the employment rate for those over 65. They have greatly reduced their salt intake, eating less preserved foods. There are many walking routes to encourage residents to exercise. HIGH-TECHContinued From 1A CRASHContinued From 1A VANDALSContinued From 1A damage to property/criminal m ischief. All have been booked into the Hardee County Jail. Bonds for each of the three have been set a t $2,750. As of early Wednesday afternoon, none has posted bond in order to gain his release from jail pending trial. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office said the destruction was reported shortly before 7 a.m. on Tuesday. Cpl James Adler and Sgt. Mark McCoy were first to arrive on the scene. Their job, he said, was to secure the campus and preserve the evidence. School officials assisted in stabilizing the scene, Dey added. The major noted that obscene photographs taped to walls could not immediately be re moved. The graphic images re mained posted for about an hour, he said, as deputies flooded the campus and processed the scene. He said Dep. Daniel Gibson, the schools resource officer, reviewed video footage of the five vandals in the act. Rumors cir culating around the campus were investigated. Soon, Dey said, suspects were developed as detectives followed all leads. Det. Andrew McGuckin is the lead investigator in the case, assisted by detectives Shane Ward and David Drake and Sgt. Johnny Shivers. Det. McGuckin told me he would have the case solved by the end of the day, Maj. Dey noted. I said that if he did, I would buy him a steak dinner. So, I owe him a steak dinner. T he probe allegedly has re vealed that Harbarugh picked up the other suspects in his 2003 Chevrolet Blazer, driving it to the school and parking it in a cit rus grove on the west side of Hardee Senior High School. Once there, the group walked through a culvert and entered school property, Dey alleged. From there, they gained entry into the gym through an open window in the weight room. Once inside, the major alleged, they emptied the contents of several fire extinguishers, coat ing everything with powder. The spree began at about 3 a.m., Dey said, and lasted for about two hours. During that time, they took the Sheriffs Office golf cart and rode around campus, crashing into various items and damaging the golf cart. Its windshield also was broken. They allegedly dumped trash, c andy, juice and more around the property. They also allegedly placed the carcass of a hog in the commons area. Eggs were thrown, toilet paper tossed and signs damaged, Dey charged. In all, he said, We could have put as many as 18 separate felony charges on each one of them. Dey noted all the suspects have been banned from school grounds and from any and all school functions for the next year. He commended Sheriffs Office and school personnel for an excellent job in handling the matter. Dey noted the campus was quickly returned to use by expert crews. Two more arrests are expected soon, he concluded. explained Shackelford. Our job is to protect the citizens of Hardee County as effectively and cost-effectively as possible, said Sheriff Arnold Lanier. We reviewed all the major vendors for emergency notification service and HyperReach gave us everything we needed. Were really excited about this new capability as our current system was outdated, continued the head of the law enforcement agency that has served the county for 93 years. Hyper-Reach is a mass notification system, based in Roc-hes ter, N.Y., that rapidly sends a voice or text message to any number of people via its digital calling system. It can send broadcasts to most current mo bile telephones, if they are currently enrolled in the system. That could be vastly impor tant if there is a major power outage in the county. Messages can be sent immediately to all cell towers to disperse or to just one in a specific area which is affected. Be sure youre among those notified! and onto the northern shoulder of t he road. The left front of the vehicle then hit a tree and then a utility pole. Delany says the pole broke on impact and caused the car to rotate in a counterclockwise direc tion. The Cadillac then overturned and came to a final rest on its roof, facing in a north ern direction on the north side of SR 64. Hillard and Garza were ejected from the car and flown to Lakeland Regional by med ical helicopter. The FHP said Hil-lard arrived at Lakeland Regional for trauma treatment, but died at 5:02 p.m. from his in juries. None of the young men were wearing seatbelts. The crash is still under investigation. Hillard and Garza became the sixth and seventh persons, re spectively, to die on Hardee Count y roads this year. Hillard leaves a son along with his mother and three brothers and three sisters. Garza leaves his mother, fa ther, stepmother and three broth ers and three sisters. The family of Justin Garza has established an account at Wauchula State Bank for donations to help pay burial ex penses. Donations can be made to the Burial Account for Justin Garza at any Wauchula State Bank branch or by mail to P.O. Box 2077, Zolfo Springs, FL 33890.

However, prices are not in a freefall, as demand reached its highest level since 2009, according to the Energy Infor-mation Administration. More than 31.8 million Amer icans will fill their gas tanks and take a trip of 50 miles or more this Memorial Day weekend. Many of them will be delighted to see that gas prices continue getting cheaper. The national average for a gallon of regular unleaded gaso line fell one cent last week. The average price in Florida dropped three cents, while prices in Georgia and Tennessee fell two cents. "AAA has forecast gas prices to be at or near last year's levels during the Memorial Day holi day weekend," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. "However, the margins of decline have been modest in the past week and prices could be slightly higher than a year ago. Even still, gas prices at these levels are not enough to keep people from traveling during the holiday," he added.

The C/IBC zoning is unique to the IDA and its existing 129acre Commerce Park, which sits off of S.R. 62 and is the northern border of the expansion. Opponents of the zoning change did not think the end uses would be compatible with the surrounding area, which includes homes and Hilltop Ele mentary and Hardee Junior High School to the south and east. Any potentially dangerous uses in the park will require additional review and permitting from the Planning and Zoning Boa rd and the commission be fore getting approval. Under the C/IBC zoning, only manufacturing, wholesale sales, equipment rentals/sales, a county building, fire station, sheriffs station, post office or a private club can be built on the property without any additional approval. Plans are to divide the prop erty into 20 lots ranging in size from four to 11 acres. The IDA purchased the property in 2008 from Dewey and Judith Terrell for $1.5 million to expand the original 129-acre park once it was built out. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The County Commission voted 4-1 last Thursday night to approve the Industrial Devel-op ment Authoritys request to re zone 104 acres to expand the Hardee County Commerce Park. The county Planning and Zoning Board previously voted 3-2 to recommend denying the request while the county staff report recommended approving the zoning change. Commissioner Grady Johnson was the lone vote against the expansion. The rezone changed a total of four parcels from F-R (Farm Commerce Park Expansion Re ceives Final Approval

The Blue team took over and pi cked up a first down with a pass from Hayden Lindsey to Jordan Jones. Parker Carlton took the ball around the right end for a first down before fumbling the ball to Sahmaud Blandin who returned it nearly 50 yards to the 13-yard line. DeLeon then dropped back and found receiver Derrick Graham open for a 12-yard touchdown. Boyette made the PAT try and the Orange led 200. The Blue team picked up a first down on an 18-yard pass from Lindsey to Cavaris Snell. Alex Clarke then had an 8-yard run up the middle for another first down. Lindsey then found Roby Paris open for a 20-yard gain before Clarke fumbled on a run up the middle and turned the ball back over to the Orange team. The Orange team was unable to pick up a first down and was forced to punt back to the Blue with a few minutes left before halftime. Lindsey looked to throw deep but was intercepted by McMillian who returned it all the way for a touchdown. Luis Castillo came on and made the PAT, pushing the Orange lead to 27-0 at halftime. T he Blue team came out and scored on its first possession of the second half when Lindsey found Boone Paris open for a 24-yard touchdown. Rodriquez made the PAT and cut the lead to 27-7. After both the Orange and Blue team went three-and-out on their next possessions, the Blue team took over and began marching downfield. Lindsey found Tyler Bragg open for a 12-yard gain and a first down to get the chains moving. Carlton then picked up 13-yards and another first down with a run around the left end. Lindsey found Roby Paris open for a 21-yard touchdown to cap the drive. Castillo made the PAT and the Blue team cut the deficit to 27-14. The Orange team quickly responded with a 55-yard touchdown pass from DeLeon to Graham. The Rodriquez PAT was good and the Orange now led 34-14. The Blue was able to score on its last possession after Holley ripped off a 30-yard run before Lindsey found Snell open for a 48-yard touchdown pass. Rodriquez made the PAT, which made the final score 3421 in favor of the Orange team. By MICHAEL KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate After a few weeks of hot practices and hard work, the Wildcats get to take the field and put it to the test when the Port Charlotte Pirates visit Wildcat Stadium Friday night for a 7:30 kickoff. Port Charlotte beat Hardee 27-7 last year in the spring game played in Port Charlotte. The Wildcats got in some good work Friday during the Orange and Blue game, which saw the Orange team prevail 34-21. The Orange team scored first and jumped out to a 27-0 halftime lead before the Blue team got on the board and tightened the game up in the second half. Tight end Deshawndre Debo McMillian scored the first touchdown of the game when he hauled in a 33-yard touchdown pass from Marco DeLeon. Levi Boyette made the PAT kick and the Orange were quickly up 7-0. After forcing the ball over on downs, the Orange team was back on the move. Running back Keyonte Holley capped off the drive with an 11-yard run up the middle for the touchdown. Rodrigo Rodriquez came on for the PAT try which was no good.

ROACH: I have a s trange question to ask and hope you can answer it in your newspaper article. Every time I stand up from being in bed, I get hiccups that last about a minute or so (at least a dozen hiccups). I was wondering if there is a medical reason for this, or is it something that is just a fluke that happens to me? N.C. ANSWER: It's not just you; I have heard of several cases, and I suspect it's not that rare. It's thought to be brought on by a change in position of the stom ach, which causes a reflex in the diaphragm. Esophageal irrita tion, especially from reflux dis ease (stomach acid going backward into the esophagus), also might be a cause. The booklet on heartburn ex plains reflux disease. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Roach No. 501W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am an 85-year-old woman living in a nursing facility. A little before my arrival here, I began experiencing night sweats. I have seen my doctor regarding this, and he said he cannot help me. I feel weak when I wake in the morning, and I need to con stantly change the towels I put under myself. This is a big con cern. A.M. ANSWER: I take night sweats seriously. Tuberculosis is the classic cause of night sweats, which is of immense concern in a nursing facility, where most people are tested for TB yearly. But other chronic infections, high thyroid levels and even blood and marrow diseases like lymphoma can show up with night sweats. Most of the time, a chest X-ray and blood tests, along with a careful exam, can make the diagnosis. Other times, it's harder to find. More often, it goes away as mysteriously as it came. But it is worth another look. DEAR DR. ROACH: Sev eral months ago, I developed a hernia on my right side, but with no pain. My doctor said I do not need an operation, be cause there is no pain. Do you agree? I am 74 and in excep tionally good health. ANSWER: A hernia is a weak ness or defect in the abdominal wall, through which abdominal structures can pass. Watchful waiting is a reasonable choice for an asymptomatic hernia one that causes no symptoms since only a minority of people with a diagnosed hernia will need surgery due to development of symptoms. The biggest risk is part of the intestine coming through the hernia and becoming stuck, which is called a strangulated hernia, and is a surgical emergency. Since most people do very well with surgical repair, many surgeons recommend surgery even on hernias with no symptoms in order to prevent this complication. How YOU feel about it is the critical issue. If you feel more comfortable getting it fixed now to prevent the chance of future problems, tell him so, and ask to see a surgeon. Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible. Readers may email questions to ToYourGoodHealth@med.cor nell.edu.

10A The Herald-Advocate, May 22, 2014 AAA Travel projects 36.1 m illion Americans will journey 50 miles or more from home during the Memorial Day holi day weekend, a 1.5 percent in crease from the 35.5 million people who traveled last year. Kicking off the summer driving season, more than eight in 10 travelers will drive to their destinations. The Memorial Day holiday travel period is defined as Thursday, May 22, to Monday, May 26. A long and unusually harsh winter gave many Americans the travel bug, said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. Com-bine rising temperatures with signs of an improving economy, and travel for the holiday should hit a new post-recession high. Highlights from the 2014 Me morial Day Travel Forecast in clude: travel volume is expected to reach a new post-recession high with 36.1 million Americans taking a trip. percent higher than the 10-year historical average and the sec ond hi ghest travel volume since 2000. 2005 was the highest. travelers, or 31.8 million, will travel by automobile, an increase from 31.4 million last year. pected to increase from 2.4 percent to 2.6 million leisure travelers. transportation including cruise, trains and buses will see the largest increase, up 6.5 percent, or a total 1.7 million travelers. slightly higher prices, with air fares six percent higher, midrange hotels up two percent and car rentals costing one percent more. Improvements in several key economic factors are driving the expectation for more holiday travelers this year. Consumer spending, disposable income, consumer confidence and the employment outlook are trend ing up, which is welcomed news for the travel industry, contin ued Jenkins. AAA expects that most driv ers will pay lower gas prices by M emorial Day weekend due to rising supplies.

AAA Forecasts Busiest M emorial Day In Years S S p p l l e e n n d d i i d d S S t t r r a a w w b b e e r r r r i i e e s s Strawberries are so lovely. Is it a ny wonder that the strawberry plant is a member of the rose family, and that the heart-shaped baubles we gobble up are not really berries, but the enlarged receptacle of the plant's flower? Strawberries are very much a product of their environment: finicky, with the luscious fruit ei ther providing an incomparable pop of flavor or the most disappointing let down of blandness. I don't know anyone who hasn't had more than their share of tasteless strawberries. Strawberries like their soil and weather just so. It also appears they have suffered from our loving them too much. This oncedelicate fruit is now commonly grown on Ponderosa-sized farms. What were once tiny jewels are now bright red golf balls (all the easier for field hands to pick). It's widely believed that this attempt to bring mass quantities to a demanding public has compromised the strawberry's ir resistible sweet-tart flavor. While it's not impossible to find a ripe, honeyed berry in your grocery, when late spring comes, I sug gest you hit the road and head ei ther to a farmer's market or small farm stand. Beside the color, the smell and the beguiling taste of seasonal strawberries, the great news is that they're good for you! They are on almost everyone's bestfood list, mainly because of the high amount of vitamin C they Kitchen Div a By Angela Medearis deliver, more than oranges per serving, and with less sugar. They're also packed with fiber and antioxidants. Strawberries are considered a superfood. When choosing strawberries there is one important check point: smell. If your prospective package of berries doesn't give you that familiar waft of sweet ness, then set it back down. The other aspect to check for is mold. Strawberries are highly perish able, don't travel well and are known to start spoiling even as they sit there looking attractive. When you get home, refrigerate them, and then wash as needed. In addition to strawberry ice cream, shakes, pies and jams, or a bowl of fresh strawberries and cream, there are other ways to accentuate these treasures. Strawberries pair well with many herb and citrus flavors, such as mint, lemon verbena, the juice and rind of lemons and oranges. You also can experiment with herbs such as tarragon, basil and lemon thyme. A little sugar or a great honey also will en hance the flavor of even the most perfectly ripe berry. Whipped cream, creme fraiche or a good quality Greek yogurt pair per fectly strawberries. Strawberries also go well in savory dishes, and can be used in salads and sauces to add a bright dimension of flavor. Like so many foods, the essence of strawberries will intensify when roasted, either for desserts or as a surprising and attractive addi tion to side vegetables, such as carrots or beets. Try my recipe for Roasted Strawberry Jam, and be adventurous with strawber ries! Roasted Strawberry Jam When cleaning strawberries, be sure to avoid soaking them in water. Strawberries are very porous and will become water logged and lose some of their fla vor. 4 pounds ripe strawberries 1 cup granulated sugar 2 tablespoons lemon juice or orange juice 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1. Preheat oven to 350 de grees F. 2. Rinse the strawberries thor oughly. Cut off tops and carve away any discolored or mushy parts. Quarter or dice each berry. 3. Place berries on foil or a parchment paper-lined roasting pan. Mix the berries with the sugar, juice, vanilla extract, salt and pepper. Spread berries evenly across the surface of the pan. 4. Roast for approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes, stirring every 20 to 30 minutes to prevent burn ing and sticking, making sure to scrape the sides of the pan. 5. Remove strawberries from the pan. Allow to cool slightly before using. Pour into an air tight container and refrigerate overnight to firm. Makes 1 1/2 cups.

The FFA members delighted first graders by reading to them as they all shared a book about agriculture. The little ones were proud to have the senior-high students take time from their day to visit with them. AG ADVENTURE H H C C S S B B W W i i l l l l R R a a z z e e O O l l d d B B u u i i l l d d i i n n g g s s Of The Herald-Advocate What goes up eventually comes back down. This is true even for build ings. Over the upcoming sum mer break, five old buildings, maybe six, will be demolished at Wauchula Elementary School and the former junior-high campus. In June of 2012, Rob Krahl, director of educational facilities, asked to demolish two buildings at WES. At that time, the School Board instructed Krahl to plan out which other buildings also needed to be removed. The board has now given Krahl the go-ahead to demolish the sheriffs trailer, snack shack, attendance, ACE and teachers lounge, which are mostly lo cated on the old middle school grounds and are no longer use ful. According to a report from Krahl, These buildings were a part of a Castaldi Analysis commissioned by the board and approved by the Florida Department of Edu-cation. The analy sis said that making the necessary upgrades to use the buildings in the future isnt costeffective and they should be razed. Krahl had asked for proposals from three separate contractors for demolition of the five buildings and received quotes from Robcor Contracting for $19,000, Cross Construction for $25,780 and Kimmins Con-tacting for $31,610. The School Board has contracted with these companies in the past. During the regularly sched uled School Board meeting on May 8, Vice Chairwoman Teresa Crawford asked the other members and Krahl to walk onto the campus to look at the buildings. The meeting was then temporar ily adjourned so all of the members could take a tour. Upon touring the grounds, the board members spotted what was the old junior high cafeteria, which is located right behind the newer cafeteria. When back in t he board room and continuing with the meeting, Krahl said that building has had break-ins, has been vandalized and also has termites. He noted it costs money to try and keep up the building after every break-in, even though the building is no longer in use. However in the past, the build ing has been used as storage and there are several items in the building. Board member Paul Samuels then asked why not just demolish the old cafeteria along with the other five buildings? Krahl said it would be cheaper to do so, as he was told demolishing the building by itself would cost $24,000. Upon hearing this, the members voted to contract Robcor Contracting and include the destruction of the cafeteria over this summer break, as long as the total cost of demolition does not exceed $43,000. If it does, then the building will be torn down at a later date. Krahl is currently working on getting a reduced price from the contractor to include the build ing. what is and is not a fertilizer pl ant. Currently codes do not clas sify companies that blend or mix various fertilizers and nutrients together as a fertilizer plant. Fer tilizer plants are defined as mak ing the base products by various chemical processes and reac tions. Johnson said he did not want to cause any existing or pro posed businesses problems but felt the board should wait until staff can create descriptions classifying what is and is not a fertilizer plant before voting. Commissioners Sue Birge and Colon Lambert said they each separately toured the Florikan facility in Sarasota and liked what they saw. Edger Davis, President of Florida Fertilizer in Wauchula, explained the differences between a mixing plant and what he considers a fertilizer plant, such as an ammonia facility. Davis said he doesnt see any problem with Florikan, or the existing two fertilizer compa nies, being located in the Commerce Park. Eric Rosenthal, President of Florikan, said all the company does is coat existing products with a polymer material, similar to that used for truck bed liners and mattresses. He said the porous coating allows water to slowly enter and exit the mate rial, which controls how fast the nut rients are released. He said the company coats urea and compound fertilizers and does not handle any ammonium nitrate. Lambert then said he does not feel the company should be clas sified as a fertilizer producer and did not think a Major Special Exception was necessary. After making the motion, Commissioner Mike Thompson also directed staff to remove the term fertilizer plant from the Unified Land Development Code and come up with more accurate descriptions for the var ious businesses that handle fertilizer. I dont like the term, Thompson said. It leaves too much up to interpretation. I dont think it adequately de scribes anything. Don Chancey, a P&Z board member, cautioned commission ers about opening a slippery slope by declaring the company as a blending and mixing facil ity. He said the companies in the Commerce Park also sell chemicals. Chancey said the Fire Department and the Building and Zoning Department need to be on the same page with these codes when determining how a business is classified. Of The Herald-Advocate A company that puts a poly mer coating around fertilizers was given approval by the Hardee County Commission to locate in the Hardee County Commerce Park without having to apply for a special exception. Commissioners voted 4-1 on Thursday night to classify Florikan, along with other similar fertilizer mixing and blend ing companies in the county, as a manufacturer of finished products instead of a fertilizer plant. Commissioner Grady Johnson voted against the motion. Florikan is currently operat ing in a light industrial park in Sarasota County off Interstate 75 and is planning on moving its production facility to Hardee County by mid-2015. The company will build an 80,000-square foot building at the Commerce Park after receiving a $2 million grant from the Hardee County Economic Development Authority. Florikan will also contribute around $2 million to construct the facility, which is expected to cost about $4 million. It is ex pected to employ around 50 peo ple. The issue arose after county staff requested commissioners discuss the issue and provide clarification to the Unified Land Development Codes re-garding Fertilizer Company Receives ApprovalKIDNEYContinued From 1A be bonded by more than friends hip. Gilliard traveled to Atlanta, Ga., yesterday (Wednesday) where the transplant will take place at Piedmont Hospital. Today (Thursday) they will both go for preoperative testing, where doctors will once again check and make sure that the two are compatible. The surgery is scheduled for early tomorrow morning. Gilliard says they will both be in the same operating room and will then be taken to separate re covery rooms. Gilliard will be out within one week, but Morse must stay in the hospital for about a month to make sure his new kidney is functioning properly. Gilliard will then be back in Hardee County by the following Wednesday. After the surgery, Gilliard will have to change a few things, including his diet or any con sumption of alcohol. He will also have to return for followups in six weeks, then six m onths, then a year and then in two years. Morse also requires further attention after the surgery. He will have monthly medications that will total between $1,200 and $2,500. The average cost for the transplant is $313,000. His friends and family are trying to raise money to help Morse cover the expense of the surgery and medications. He is enrolled in the Transplant Fundraising Program of the Georgia Transplant Foun-da tion. This foundation will match dollar for dollar, up to $10,000, whatever Morse raises. To donate and help Morse with medical bills, send checks payable to Larry Morse Kidney Transplant Fund and mail to Larry Morse Kidney Transplant Fund, P.O. Box 66, Meldrim, GA 31318.

Bend down, Daddy, she cried, so I can reach you. 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. After all of the good that He did, He voluntarily went to the cross and died for our sins, expressing the love of God, His Father. Hes the same today.

A. As a veteran, beware of pension advance products that offer to pay military retirees a lump-sum payout in return for their monthly retirement payments. The products may amount to payment of only pennies on the dollar, and the advances are reported to carry interest rates from 27 percent to 106 percent, which can threaten a safe retirement. There are many pension advance companies on the Internet, often with patriotic-sounding names and logos. If youre offered a pension advance, stay away from arrangements that allow a creditor to access the account where you get your benefits. Instead, get trusted financial expert advice if you need emer gency funds. Additionally, some individuals and companies use VAs Aid & Attendance pension benefit as a hook to sell services. The Aid & Attendance benefit is for eligible disabled veterans who require the aid and attendance of another person, or who are housebound. Individuals or companies looking to sell their services may offer to help veterans obtain Aid & Attendance benefits, but they move assets into irrevocable trusts for qualification. When being solicited, watch out for: A lawyer or veteran adviser who offers to get the Aid & Attendance benefit for a fee. Federal law prohibits VA-accredited advisers from charging to assist with VA claims. However, at times a consultation fee is charged up front. A claim from a paid adviser stating that he can get the benefits for you more quickly than anyone else. All VA claims must go through the standard evaluation process, which no one can bypass to get it done faster. An offer to help financially secured veterans quality or Aid & Attendance by taking control of their finances and moving assets into inaccessible trusts. This may disqualify a veteran from other benefits. Retirement homes using the lure of Aid & Attendance to get veterans to move in on the implied promise that they will get the benefit. If the claim is denied, the veteran may not be able to afford to remain in the facility. E-mail claims questions to askso@legion.org.

It will remain open through July 14, a total of 52 days. This season was set at the Florida Fish & Wildlife Con-ser vation Commission meeting in April. Opening the season the Saturday before Memorial Day will provide recreational red snapper fishing opportunities through an important holiday weekend, helping attract more visitors and bringing economic benefits to coastal communities. The federal season will be nine days, starting June 1 and re maining open through June 9. Florida state waters in the Gulf are from shore to nine nautical miles. Federal waters extend from where state waters end, out to about 200 nautical miles. The daily bag limit for red s napper will remain two per per son in Gulf state and federal wa ters. The minimum size limit is 16 inches total length. There is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew of forhire vessels. Recreational anglers targeting reef fish such as red snapper in Gulf state and federal waters are required to use dehooking de vices and non-offset, non-stainless steel circle hooks when fishing with natural bait. These devices are designed to help increase the likelihood a fish will survive if it is released. Venting tools are no longer required when targeting reef fish. This requirement was removed to allow fishermen the freedom to use the methods or tools of their choosing when releasing reef fish. Red Snapper S eason Opens Week Ending: May 18, 2014 M ore Fieldwork Possible This Week Weather Summary: According to Floridas Automated Weather Network (FAWN), Jay (Santa Rosa County) received the most rain with 5.04 inches of rain.

The lowest temperatures in the State ranged from 47 degrees in Defuniak Springs (Walton County) to 66 degrees in Fort Lauderdale (Broward County). Field Crop: Farmers in the Panhandle and north Florida still have water standing in cultivated fields. Two farmers in Gulf County were planting soybeans. In Jackson County and Okaloosa County farmers were planting cotton. Walton County was drying out but peanut planting was delayed. In Washington County some peanut acreage will be replanted. Dixie County farmers received more rain this past week and 25-30% of fields were flooded that had been planted; other fields too wet to start planting. Levy County farmers were finishing up with planting peanuts this past week. Statewide, peanut planting was 48 percent complete, ahead of last years 45 percent but behind the 5-year average of 49 percent. Citrus: Rainfall in the citrus producing area this past week was widespread. All stations received some precipitation, ten received more than an inch, and two received more than two inches.

Daytime high temperatures were warm, reaching the upper 80s to low 90s in all c itrus producing counties. As per the U.S. Drought Monitor, last up dated May 13, 2014, abnormally dry conditions have returned to the southernmost region of the citrus growing area but are currently affecting no active citrus groves. The rainfall of a few weeks ago was beneficial. Some of the healthier and well cared for trees are showing lots of new growth. Next seasons crop is progressing well with oranges marble size or bigger and grapefruit golf ball sized. Growers and caretakers are ap plying nutritional and post bloom sprays, fertilizing, irrigating, mowing, and in some cases resetting new trees. Processing plants are primarily running Valencia oranges from now until the end of the season. Several packinghouses have fin ished 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, Lee, and Dixie counties. Potato harvest continued and the last of the cabbage were being harvested in Flagler and Putnam counties. Vegetable producers were cleaning up fields in southwest Florida as the season nears an end. Crops planted in Miami-Dade County were boniato, malanga, okra, and bitter melon. Miami-Dade County farmers were harvesting boniato, bitter melon, malanga, okra, and some herbs. Vegetables and fruits coming to market in the southwest were blueberries, collards, cu cumbers, eggplant, herbs, kale, lettuce, peppers, snap beans, squash, tomatoes, watermelons, and specialty items. Livestock and Pastures: Pastures remain wet in the Panhandle. Pasture in southwest Florida received some rain this past week which helped improve condition. The cattle condition for the State was primarily good but the pasture condition was fair to good.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, May 22, 2014 PAGE ONE By JIM KELLY Of The Herald-Advocate The Bowling Green City Commission voted 4-0 Tuesday night, May 13, to begin discussions of a 25-year lease with Hardee County for a $1 million permanent fire/rescue building to be located at the current location, the west end of Pyatt Park on West Main Street. The Current location has a 2004 hurricane FEMA singlewide trailer and an adjacent pole barn that leaks. The current lo cation has a staff of two. Hardee Fire/Rescue chief Jim Stillwagon said a new building would have three bays for equip ment and housing room for up to eight staff. He proposed the new building would initially have a staff of two for the fire truck and two for the ambulance, with a fifth person a supervisor added soon. City Commissioner Sam Fite is on the nine-member Planning and Development Committee that wants a permanent fire/rescue building in the city, to complement the permanent facilities in Wauchula and Zolfo Springs. Stillwagon hopes the proposed new facility can be built for about $1 million. Years ago the city had its own volunteer fire department but not any more. Hardee County is responsible for fire/rescue service. The FEMA trailer is unsafe in storm conditions, the fire truck is fading from the sun, water leaks on the equipment which is exposed to the public, and the facility does not meet standards for a fire station, he said. He said an ambulance was recently stolen in DeSoto Coun-ty. An ambulance generally has narcotic drugs if needed for patients being treated and trans ported. The goal is to have a fourman station. It is now a two-man station. The potential is for two men for the ambulance and two for the fire engine. Fite was a member of the former city volunteer fire depart ment. Fire insurance is less in areas served by a nearby certified fire department. In other action the commis sion voted 4-0 to establish a Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) in Bowling Green. The 195-acre area would en velop 308 properties and include the Hwy 17 and Main Street cor ri dors and the proposed new commerce park. This is to accumulate ad valorem tax money to improve slum and blighted areas of the city. Once in effect the ad valorem tax money collected by Hardee County is capped at the current level and future increases go to the CRA, which can be a new board or the current city com mission. Taxes from all new construction in the area go to the CRA, 95 percent being retained by the CRA and 5 percent to the county. This has been proposed by city manager Jerry Conerly, who saw a CRA established years ago in Wauchula when he was an employee and later city commission member. His daughter Jessica Newman current runs the Wauchula CRA, and the Wauchula City Com-mission sits as the CRA board. This brings in several hundred thou sand dollars a year. A typical CRA can be for 30 years, with an option to extend it. A CRA would support development and growth in the city. County Commissioners Mike Thompson and Colon Lambert a ttended the meeting. Thompson said the proposed city commerce park has been getting development funds from the county IDA and EDA and the proposed CRA could lead to the city not getting any more of the development funds. The city commission voted 40 to give $500 toward the countywide fireworks for Saturday, July 5, at Pioneer Park at the request of Benny Hash, chairman of the Hardee Builders Association. Hash said the county has pledged $5,000 and the city of Wauchula $2,000 for the fire works. Hash will also give $500. Years ago, when the city had a volunteer fire department, Bowling Green had its own fire works for citizens on July 4. The commission voted 4-0 to approve the first reading of an ordinance to amend the impact fees on new construction in the city. City Manager Jerry Conerly said the city plans to waive the impact fees for a period of time to encourage more homes to be built within the city limits. Randy Dillingham of CS & L, CPAs presented the 2012-13 city audit report. He said the city was i n a good financial position. Debt service will be about $70,000 next year, he said. The commission appointed Leslie Long and Troy Jackson to the city recreation committee. Committee chair Jean Kelly said the group plans to sponsor in 2015 an annual canoe race on Peace River form Bowling Green to Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. It will be held in the spring or summer. She said the city will also be displaying 24 U.S. flags along Hwy. 17 on Memorial Day weekend this year and on future national holiday weekends. City commissioner Steve Spinks wants welcome to Bowl ing Green signs on the highway at the north and south city limits. He noted the city was improving the median on Banana Street. Fites request for a four-way stop at Jones St. and Doyle Parker Ave. was approved. Attending the meeting were Spinks, Fite, Stuart Durastanti and Mayor Shirley Tucker. Commissioner Richard Barone was absent. PHOTOS BY JIM KELLY Ha rdee Fire/Rescue Chief Jim Stillwagon show the location of proposed new city fire/rescue station. Bowling Green May Get N ew Fire/Rescue Building WHO WE ARE H ave you noticed how many studies involve seniors? Whether it's medical research, how we handle technology or where we choose to retire, we seniors must be fascinating. Now the U.S. Census has issued a report covering a number of aspects of senior life. Here are some facts about us: iors ages 65-69 worked. Now, in 2012, 32 percent were in the workforce. Even the 70-74 age group saw a significant jump, from 12 percent to 17 percent. iors age 65 and older owned their homes. That's the same as in 2012, so we haven't lost any ground there. fer warm weather, but that isn't necessarily so. Over 18 percent of people who lived in Florida are age 65 and older ... but that's quickly followed by Maine at 17 percent. have an average net worth of ap proximately $170,000. We only ke ep an average of $800 in a checking account, preferring to put the bulk of our cash in interest-bearing accounts. Sen-iors in the Northeast edged out those in the other regions of the country, but not by much. 56 percent of us are, with 25 per cent of us widowed and 11 percent divorced. have a computer in the home, with the Northeast having the most computer ownership. Income plays a part: The higher the income, the more likely a household will have a computer. ken down by income, marital status or region of the country, seniors vote in larger percentages than any other age groups.

Fort Green News By R illa Cooper Greetings from Fort Green! W e have had some unusual but great weather for the past few days. The March winds are here to stay! Fort Green is growing, as is most of Florida. Little Mattie Grace Davis made her appear ance early on May 15. She was at church on the 18th! She is a beautiful little baby. The twin girls of Katie Moye were delivered early Saturday morning, the 17th. Both weighed less than two pounds each and will have to remain at Tampa General for several months. Katie will be dis charged in a few days. Greatgrandma Gwen Albritton said the doctor said a day at a time. We all know prayer is the key. Charlotte Albritton Truitt, who was born in Fort Green but moved to Highlands when in the eighth grade, called me to give news of her son, Jeff. He is a lawyer in Raleigh, N.C., and was appointed by Gov. McCrory to be a member at-large on the state CPA Examin-er Board. I truly dont understand the pleasure people get from throwing trash in the creeks. The little creek south of our house only has a trickle of water and someone threw a big post over the trickle. It looks like a fat littered post. Drink cups and cans are thrown in quite frequently. Grandma Mary Samuels was very proud of her grandson, Clay. He placed second in the race at Auburndale Speedway and won a big trophy and cash! I didnt ask how much money but any is great! I dont know where they came from but we have new hand fans in church with a photo of the church on the front and hours of operation on the back. Remember when most churches had no AC and only open windows and fans from the local funeral homes? Grandmother Geraldine Floyd told me her grandson, Garrett Floyd, had been accepted at the University of Florida in Gainesville. He was on cloud nine. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of Rozene Proctor. She made her final jour ney early Friday morning. She was a beautiful lady always dre ssed to the T and just as pretty inside. She was always pleasant to be around and will be missed. Our sincere sympathy is also extended to the family of Harry Hambrick. He was Betty Abbotts brother-in-law and lived in Georgia but was a frequent visitor to Fort Green. Ciara Smith turned 12 last Saturday and had a party at home with cake and presents. She is a pretty girl with three older brothers. Our calendar is getting full. Gulf State Homecoming is this Friday and Saturday. May 29 is the 4-H Banquet. June 1 our graduates will be recognized in the morning service, with dinner in the fellowship hall after the a.m. service. June 7 is a sing benefit for Byron Allison. This benefit will be in the Bowling Green Baptist Church, with groups from Fort Green and Bowling Green along with other groups having special music. It has not been decided if a meal will be served or not. Of course, the 7th is graduation day for Hardee County so even if you are worn out from that big event, put out the extra effort and attend this worthwhile event. On our prayer list is Levi Bolin, an infant with problems. Gloria Dupree is back in rehab, LaVoyd Hall, Doyle Bryan and all the ones with cancer who attend Fort Green. Sherman, Newt Murdock and his grandson, Jack, went to Homerville, Ga., last week to get their deer stands. They made it there and back in one day, but the old men were sure tired! When Sherman called me to say they were on the way home and Jack was driving, I told Sherman that I knew Jack and had at tended a graduation party for him at Connie Cokers a long time ago!

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A Carla Shayman, a Hardee H igh School Class of 2005 vale dictorian, graduated on May 2 with a Doctorate Degree in physical therapy from North eastern University in Boston, Mass. She had earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in community health at the University of North Florida in 2009, where she com pleted an internship in physical therapy at the Brooks Rehabilitation Center in Jacksonville and was the group-fitness program coordinator for the university. As a student at the University of North Florida, Carla was a member of the Honors Program, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Eta Sigma Gamma Health Student Honor Society, Golden Key Inter-national Honor Society, Uni-ver sity Scholars Honor Society, the Community Health Student Advisory Board and the Uni-versity of North Florida Sailing Club. Carla also volunteered at the Hubbard House Womens Shelter, Ruggles Assisted Liv-ing Facility, Kernan Boulevard Bap tist Church and Habitat for Humanity. As a requirement of her doc torate, Carla completed five medical internships over the past two years. Carla spent six months working for Fukuji & Lum Physical Therapy Associates in Kailua, Oahu, Hawaii, where she guided patients through applied treatment modalities in both outpatient and aquatic therapy settings. Her next assignment was at the Cherry Hill Rehabilitation Center in Birmingham, Ala., where she evaluated, reassessed and treated geriatric patients in an inpatient skilled nursing center. An internship at a privatelyowned outpatient clinic in New York City provided an opportunity to treat adult orthopedic patients and to present an in-service session on body me chanics for manual treatments. Carla next traveled to Lau sanne, Switzerland, where she interned at the HESAV Univers ity of Applied Sciences of Western Switzerland. Her assignment in Switzerland in cluded an opportunity to evaluate and assist doctors in the treatment of patients throughout their lifespan in a variety of settings, to study international health-care policy, and to com plete advanced coursework in the field of oncology. Her final medical rotation was for six months at the Corner stone Therapy Clinic in Hunt ington Beach, Calif., where she evaluated and treated pediatric patients in an outpatient clinic, school and home-based settings, educated caregivers and class room teachers, and presented inservice on gait analysis in experienced pediatric ambula tors. Carla also presented her re search project prior to earning her degree while participating in a medical conference in New York City which was entitled, A Comparison of Physician Referral and Direct Access Prac tice Models: An analysis of physical therapy practice pat terns when accessed through direct access versus a physicians referral. She will be spending the next two months in Spokane, Wash., preparing for her national board certification examination in July. Carla is the daughter of Bob and Linda Shayman of Wauchula.

Pill Drop A massed Big Load The latest local Take-Back Day collected 138 pounds of unwanted medications! The Hardee County Alliance for Substance Abuse & Teen Pregnancy Prevention in con junction with the Hardee County Sheriffs Office and the Wauchula Police Department joined in the national the pill drop on April 26. Old, unused and unwanted medications create a public health and safety concern be cause they are highly susceptible to accidental ingestion, theft, misuse, abuse or disposal which can contaminate water supplies. Take-Back Day first began in September 2010, and since then 3.4 million pounds of pills have been collected nationally. Both the Sheriffs Office and the Wauchula Police Department say Hardee Countians dont have to wait for that one special day to arrive. They will take your unwanted medications Monday through Friday of any week. Hardee County aims to provide a safe, convenient and re sponsible means of disposal while also educating the public about the potential for abuse of these medications. The Alliance for Substance Abuse & Teen Pregnancy Prevention is a group of concerned citizens, law enforcement offi cers and community and busi ness leaders who are working together to take a stand against drugs and bring about positive change for Hardee County.

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B PHOTOSBY JIM KELLY T he local watermelon har vest has been underway since May 10 and should last until about May 29, said Bowling Green grower Jimmy Parker on Monday. Prices through May 19 had been good at 22 to 25 cents a pound to the grower, he said. Most all the growers in Hardee, DeSoto and Manatee counties are har vesting. Warm weather in the U.S. helps fuel the sale and price of watermelons. Growers in this area always try to have their melons ready for the Memorial Day weekend, which tradition ally is a big time for people to enjoy watermelons. This year Memorial Day is May 26. These photos were taken May 15 at Parkers fa cility on East Main Street in Bowling Green. Melons often are taken from field to packing house in old school buses like shown here. WATERMELON HARVEST UNDERWAY COURTESY PHOTO F rank Phillips, of the Heartland Library Cooperative, recently was honored at the Hardee County Public Library for all the work he does to keep the public computers going. The week of May 12-16 was declared "Frank And Beans Week" by the cooperative. All li braries in the co-op honored Phillips in some way.

SendMeMissions 5K Run/Walk 10B The Herald-Advocate, May 22, 2014

PAGE 23

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-AdvocateMain Street was filled with cheering crowds and triumphant runners as the third annual Send MeMissions 5K Run/Walk took place on May 9. Runners of all ages took to the streets of downtown Wauchula to take part in this yearly event and help raise money for the non-profit organization. The event has seen a steady increase since it started in 2012, when 320 people registered to run. This year, 433 people regis tered to take part in this 5K and $17,500 was raised for SMM. This was just $500 less than what race director Jamie DavisSamuels hoped to raise. All of the money goes di rectly into helping the organiza tion run for a full year, allowing it, in turn, to help others on mission trips and local and foreign mission projects. Runners times were calcu lated with the help of a disposable chip that was attached to each runner/walkers bib. The time was electronically transmit ted, allowing the event staff to print out and post the results in the park for all to see.

12B The Herald-Advocate, May 22, 2014 The so-called study of psychology is nothing less than a simple subject written in a most confusing way. In years past when doing my country shows, I sang the song that Ernest Tubb, the old troubador wrote and sang himself, I Would Walk Across Texas With You. But now that I am older and represent like a bird next for every pain in existence, I dont sing I Would Walk Across Texas With You. Instead I would sing I Would Try To Crawl Across Texas. Last night I heard on TV that in California they passed a new law in certain restaurants you can take your dog with you to dine out fit and proper like regular folks. But my concern is what if my dog Soup Bone dont like the waitress and suddenly takes a big hunk out of her leg even though he didnt see it on the menu. With her hollering and Soup Bone barking, when Sugar Possum with a stern look on her face, with every word crackling like popcorn in the ket tle, says, Truman, I guess you know that yall are making a scene! In ones lifetime should they fail to knock upon the door of knowledge, then why ever should it open to let them in. The one good thing about having auto insurance is once you have got it, then you are just as legal as anybody else to go out and have yourself a wreck. In my fifth divorce she had me charged for being too good to her. Let me tell you, brothers and sisters, that was one charge that was hard to beat. Last night Sugar Possum asked me would I like a TV dinner for my supper? I told her no, but did she have a little something maybe more in the like of a Radio special? One time years ago my wife at the time told me she was not sure that she loved me anymore and she was moving out to sort out her feelings. I did not really mind her moving out so she could sort out her feelings, but that 172-ton mammoth overload U-Haul truck she rolled up in to her stuff was quite another. I ask what procedure is used in shooting some self-appointed intellectual out of a big roaring cannon? This question brings to my memory of movies back to the times that cowboy Gene Autry was one of the western cowboys and his sidekick Pat Buckstrem was nearly killed while they were trying to shoot him out of one of them big barrel cannons. Last night I told them I welcomed one and all alike to the We Might Be Old But Were Bold Men Only Senior Citizens Club. However we were to enjoy speeches from seven world, national and international renowned speakers. However I am the only one of the seven to make it. If we are not politically informed then we are potentially a vot ing disaster. Lie to cover; truth to reveal. I have so oftentimes wondered back in ancient times when the Roman soldiers wore metal gear to protect them in battle from the most brutal and abhorrent weapons known to man in those times, but did the Roman soldiers who were wearing their metal gear maybe have a lightening rod attached? Could it be that know-it-alls have exposed so many of their business secrets to others that this is why they live in their big sprawling homes and drive the best on the highways money can buy, and Blabbermouth will drives a wreck of a car and lives in the same old shanty that could go at any time now but he is still blabbing.

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting de cision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must con tain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a)The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b)The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c)A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision; (d)A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; (f)A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g)A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for hold ing an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes. 5:22cSTATE OF FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF DRAFT PERMITThe Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its preparation of a draft re newal permit (FL0044229) which authorizes the discharge to discharge operate wastewater treatment and effluent disposal facilities for Units 3 of the Richard J. Midulla Generating Station in Hardee County, Florida. Low volume waste and domestic wastewater generated during the operation of Unit 3 will be treated prior to discharge to the on-site cooling reservoir. Discharge to Payne Creek from the cooling reservoir as well as the on-site storm water detention pond will occur only during extreme rainfall in excess of a 10-year, 24-hour rainfall event. Payne Creek is classified as a Class III fresh water. The Richard J. Midulla Generating Station is co-located at the Hardee Power Station site along with the Hardee Power Station power plant, owned and operated by Hardee Power Partners, Ltd. Both facilities discharge treated wastewater to the on-site cooling reservoir. The dis charge from the cooling reservoir (Outfall D-001) is jointly owned and operated by both facilities. The Hardee Power Station is permitted under Permit Number FL0041751. The permit re-authorizes the mixing zones for pH and unionized ammonia. The permit also authorizes a thermal mixing zone under Rule 62-302.520(6), F.A.C., but does not include a ther mal variance under Section 316(a), Clean Water Act. Any interested person may submit written comments on the draft permit to the Department or may submit a written request for a public meeting to Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Industrial Wastewater Program, Mail Station 3545, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400, Attention: Mr. Marc Harris, P.E., in accordance with Rule 62-620.555, Florida Administrative Code. The comments or request for a public meeting must contain the information set forth below and must be received in the Departments Industrial Wastewater Section within 30 days of publication of this notice. Failure to submit comments or request a public meeting within this time period shall constitute a waiver of any right such person may have to submit comments or request a public meeting under Rule 62-620.555, Florida Administrative Code. The comments or request for a public meeting must contain the following information: (a)The commenters name, address, and telephone number, the applicant's name and address, the Department Permit File Number and the county in which the project is proposed; (b) A statement of how and when notice of the Department action or proposed action was received; (c) A statement of the facts the Department should consider in making the final decision; (d) A statement of which rules or statutes require reversal or modification of the Department action or proposed action; and (e) If desired, a request that a public meeting be scheduled including a statement of the nature of the issues proposed to be raised at the meeting. However, the Department may not always grant a request for a public meeting. Therefore, written comments should be submitted within 30 days of publication of this notice, even if a public meeting is requested. If a public meeting is scheduled the public comment period is extended until the close of the public meeting. If a public meeting is held any person may submit oral or written statements and data at the meeting on the Department proposed action. As a result of significant public comment the Department final action may be different from the position taken by it in this draft permit. The permit application file and supporting data are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Industrial Wastewater Program, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400, telephone (850) 245-8589 and at the Departments Southwest District Office located at 13051 N.

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C Q: Could you tell me when Longmire" is coming back? Terry and Pat V., via email A: A&E's highest-rated original drama of all time will return for a 10-episode third season on Monday, June 2, at 10/9c. I re cently spoke with series star Cas sidy Freeman (who plays Cady Longmire), and she gave me a little hint as to what to expect this season: "The first season of the show really set up who these character are. We got into the rhythm of having a crime every week or every two weeks, and then last season I felt like we started to see things happen to each of these characters, and the proverbial s#!t hit the fan. Last season's tagline was: 'A storm is coming.' And now this season, the storm has come, and you'll see how people deal with the wreckage. There's going to be a lot of change. How do they put their lives back together? How do they fight to keep what they love?" And speaking of love, will Cady and Branch continue to ex plore their on-again/off-again relationship? "Absolutely," Cassidy said. "It's really, really complicated. At this point, it is no longer a don't-tell-my-dad taboo. Now it's more about if they really want to be together, and if they are each other's priority." Q: Is "The Killing" coming back for another season? I know it was canceled last sea son, and then AMC decided to give it a third season. Has it escaped death again? Carl T., Seattle A: In an almost unprece dented move, "The Killing" has escaped yet another cancelation. This past September, AMC did indeed decide not to renew the crime/mystery drama for a fourth season, and that's when Netflix stepped up to the plate. Netflix, which has been the series' exclusive digital partner for all three seasons, will air a six-episode fourth (and final) season, with "The Killing" joining the ranks of superb Netflix original series like "Arrested Development," "Orange Is the New Black," "House of Cards" and many more. The complete fourth sea son of "The Killing" will be available beginning Aug. 1. Q: Can you tell me if "The Carrie Diaries" will return this fall? Denise G., via email A: Along with "The Tomor row People" and "Star-Crossed," the not-so-great-in-the-ratings "The Carrie Diaries" has been canceled by the CW to make room for new programming. "The Flash," "iZombie," "Jane the Virgin" and "The Messen gers" will join the CW's growing lineup of supernatural and edgy dramas. Q: I am amazed every week by "Hannibal," especially the writing and all of the actors. Do you know yet if it'll be back for another season? Scott R., via email A: The dark and brilliant psychological thriller which stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen will return to NBC for a third season, most likely in spring 2015. Come back next week, when I'll be sharing NBC's entire 2014-15 schedule (with each networks' schedules to follow in subsequent weeks). Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

How do I mow to get those pat terns? A Reader, via email A: Mowing in a specific pat tern isn't the only way, nor the best way, to get those neat checkerboard stripes. A healthy lawn and proper mowing tech nique also are important. Neat patterns, or stripes, are made noticeable by bending the grass blades in one direction on one stripe, and another direction on an opposing stripe. Here are a few tips: Cutting the grass too low to the ground damages the plant, makes it grow unevenly, and leaves it vulnerable to weeds, diseases and pests. It also makes patterns difficult or impossible to create, because the shorter blades don't bend very far. third of the grass height: De pending on the type of lawn you have, the ideal height may vary Bermuda, for example, has an ideal height of about 1 inch, fescue or blue grass should be 2 to 3 inches tall, while St. Augustine should be mowed to a height of 3.5 to 4 inches. Let your grass grow at least one-third higher than its ideal height before mow ing. one's a no-brainer, but cutting when dew or rain is still heavy on the grass will prevent a clean cut, damage the grass, cause clumping and keep you from seeing that ideal pattern. Sharp blades are essential for a good cut, along with an engine working efficiently. get that nice pattern on the lawn, the best way to keep it is to change up the way you mow. Every other time, mow in a different pattern. number of striping techniques. Scag, which sells professional mower equipment, has a tutorial with instructions on how to create several patterns (www.scag.need a roller attachment to bend the grass to achieve that professional look. should be overlapped by the next by about 3 inches to make sure you don't miss a strip. ners ... yet: If the lawn has sharp or difficult corners, skip them until you've mowed the pattern you want on the rest of the lawn. Then go back and finish off each corner. The same goes for un even ground: Skip knolls until the end, then raise the mower blades so you don't scalp the grass and carefully mow the raised areas. HOME TIP: Not sure what type of grass you have? Take a picture or a small patch of sod to your garden center or home-improvement store's lawn and garden section for help identifying it.

This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I occasionally see ads for a package that will allow owners to teach their cats to use the toilet. Is that for real? I can't even train my cat to stay off the counter. Fred H., Milwaukee train cats to use a toilet rather than the litter box, but it's not an easy task. That's why those ads for training instructions crop up and then disappear, at least for a while. Still, even owners who don't care if their cats can do cart wheels on command can teach them some behaviors that make life easier for both parties. Train ing cats to use the litter box is a prime example, and offers some hints as to how to train them to do other things, like stay off the counter. A litter box is meant to provide the closest thing to how cats eliminate when they're outside they hide their stools from po tential predators by covering them with sand or loose soil. So, training often consists of taking a new cat or a weaned kitten and placing it in the litter box. To get a cat off the counter, try to figure out why it wants to be up there. Cats instinctively like high ground. The smell of food may be drawing the cat upward, or even just the memory that food was on the counter, and therefore may be again. When training cats, it's better to convince them that they want to do something, rather than forcing them to do it or punish ing undesirable behavior. Take advantage of their natural in stincts to develop your own ways to train them, and combine that training with a specific reward when the cat responds positively.

Collecting Q: I have a chenille bedspread that has been in my family for at least 75 years. It has a log cabin design and is in fairly good condition. Is this a keeper? Barbara, Tyler, Texas A: The first chenille bedspreads were made using thick cotton threads, identical to those found in candle wicks. Although the earliest ex amples of this type of embroi dery date back to Colonial America, chenille didn't really become popular until the Victo rian era. Until the 1940s, almost all of the bedspreads were made in Georgia and by hand. Later, companies such as Cabin Craft began mechanically producing them in great numbers. Spreads made by such companies as Morgan Jones, Bates and Hofmann are especially desirable. The value of a chenille bed spread depends on several factors: Condition, the pattern and the colors used all are important. Prices can vary. Spotted recently in Phoenix were three excep tional chenille spreads: An elaborate peacock, $85; a patriotic World War II design with war planes and military ships, $125; and a ranch scene with horses and cowpokes, $150. Q: I purchased a cast-iron bulldog several years ago at a flea market and recently dis covered it actually is a doorstop. Is it worth keeping? Mike, Las Cruces, N.M. A: It depends. Since reproduc tions have flooded the marketplace, it is al ways a good idea to examine them with suspicion. Cast-iron doorstops seem to ebb and flow in popularity. During the 1980s, interest reached a fever pitch and prices soared. That fever has since broken to quite an extent. If your doorstop is authentic, it might be worth keeping. Typical prices in clude a Colonial woman with cat, $325; a bunny, $95; a basket of tulips, $150; and a covered wagon, $150. All of these prices reflect vintage examples, not reproductions. Reproductions often can be found in the $25 to $50 range. Be care, since many of the fakes are aged to look old and real. Q: I have a rub-stained glass toothpick holder that was a souvenir of Chicago. I think it probably is from the Victorian era. I have been offered $75 for it. Beth, Decatur, Ill. A: Take the money and run. According to several collectors I contacted, your toothpick holder is valued in the $25 to $45 range. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

Lest We Forgetn 11 nr By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate So far, only one of five in cumbents up for re-election hasnot sparked any opposition. Thomas Trevino, School Board member for District 5,has no challengers to date. But as the deadline for placing one’s name on the ballot by thevoter-petition method passed onMonday at noon, four other in cumbents are in for a race tokeep their seats. County Commission District 2 incumbent Sue Birge, a Re publican, is opposed by threepolitical hopefuls, Steven Plum mer II, Daniel Graham and JudyWilson. Plummer is a Democrat,while Graham and Wilson areboth Republicans. Grady Johnson, the incum bent county commissioner forDistrict 4 and a Republican,faces two opponents, Repub-lican Russell Melendy and De mocrat Allen Ellison. For the School Board, which is a non-partisan race, District 1member Paul Samuels is beingchallenged by Andrew Smith. In District 4, veteran member Jan Platt has two contenders,Eugenia Larsen and GarryMcWhorter. Again, District 5’s Trevino re mains alone on the roster to date. That may change when the of ficial qualifying period opens onMonday, June 16. It will run fora full week. At that time, however, poten tial candidates will have to paya qualifying fee. By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate A May 13 vehicle crash which already had taken oneteen’s life claimed another onSaturday. Justin Garza, 19, of Wauchula, died at Lakeland Re-gional Medical Center afterbeing transported there in criti cal condition on Tuesday of lastweek, says an updated FloridaHighway Patrol report. The single-vehicle crash first took 19-year-old Tyshon Hil-lard’s life. He succumbed to hisinjuries on the same day as thewreck, FHP crash investigatorTrp. William J. Delany andhomicide investigator Cpl. K.Benavidez said. The third occupant, Manuel Juarez, 22, was taken to FloridaHospital Wauchula in seriouscondition. The accident happened around 1:20 a.m. on State Road64 and West Main Street, nearCharlotte’s Webb. FHP said thecar was a 2003 Cadillac CTS, al though it is still unknown whowas driving the vehicle. The report says the Cadillac was going east on SR 64 when,for an unknown reason, the carwent across the westbound laneSee CRASH 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate There’s a new, improved way to make sure you get in on allthe important alerts for HardeeCounty. Text, Facebook, Twitter, cell phone or landline, the HardeeCounty Sheriff’s Office is liter ally reaching out to ensure thateveryone living or working inthe county can receive instantnotification of any emergencythat might concern them. The new Hyper-Reach mass notification system enables lawenforcement to notify hundredsof people instantly when neces sary. It could be severe weather, such as a tornado watch or warn ing; evacuations because ofpower outages, flood or an envi ronmental or chemical hazard; ajail or prison escapee; an armedshooter; wild animals, such as abear or panther roaming theneighborhood; an Am-ber or Sil ver alert for a missing child orelderly resident; or anything that places a resident or county visi tor at risk. The system is only as good as the residents who use it. The best way to be sure is to register online at hardeeso.-com., says Gerald Shackelford,systems administrator with theHardee County Sheriff’s Office.People can also enroll by goingto the website www.usnear.org. He noted that many homes no longer have a landline. Eventhose that do need to be suretheir number is updated in the Sheriff’s Office database, espe cially if they have moved or got ten a new number. People alsoneed to register their cell phone,Facebook or twitter, so thatthere’s an associated ad-dressfor an alert in their area. The new system replaces an “old, antique, worn-out system,that has aged beyond its use.With it, we could only notify 10or 15 people at one time and ittook hours to reach the 300 or400 hundred in a specific area,” See HIGH-TECH 2A By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Ever wanted to help someone and then donated blood? How about giving an organ?Fort Green resident Randy Gilliard is stepping up to save afriend’s life by doing just that.He is donating a kidney. His old Army buddy, Larry Morse of Meldrim, Ga., wasborn with only one functioningkidney and is now in end-stagekidney failure. Upon hearingthis news, Gilliard decided to getchecked out and see if he couldbe the one to donate the vital organ to Morse. Gilliard had to undergo a number of exams, such as bloodtests, stress tests, an electrocar diogram (EKG) and more, to seeif Morse’s body would acceptone of his kidneys. He says hehas never been seriously ill,other than having his appendixtaken out, so he was optimisticof being healthy enough to do nate. After all of the tests, he was told he was a match and wouldbe able to give a kidney. When asked why he even considered doing so, Gilliard said Morse was a very goodfriend and “it’s the right thing todo.” He also said he never hadany doubts about going throughwith this life-saving procedure. The two met in Germany when they were stationed therewith the U.S. Army. Gilliard wasa combat engineer and Morsewas a helicopter me-chanic.When Gilliard left Germany, hecontinued to stay in contact withhis friend. The men have evenfished and hunted together.

Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriff’s Officesaid the destruction was reportedshortly before 7 a.m. on Tues day. Cpl James Adler and Sgt.Mark McCoy were first to arriveon the scene. Their job, he said, was to se cure the campus and preservethe evidence. School officialsassisted in stabilizing the scene,Dey added. The major noted that obscene photographs taped to wallscould not immediately be re moved. The graphic images re mained posted for about an hour,he said, as deputies flooded thecampus and processed the scene. He said Dep. Daniel Gibson, the school’s resource officer, re viewed video footage of the fivevandals in the act. Rumors cir culating around the campuswere investigated. Soon, Deysaid, suspects were developed asdetectives followed all leads. Det. Andrew McGuckin is the lead investigator in the case, as sisted by detectives Shane Wardand David Drake and Sgt.Johnny Shivers. “Det. McGuckin told me he would have the case solved bythe end of the day,” Maj. Deynoted. “I said that if he did, Iwould buy him a steak dinner. So, I owe him a steak dinner.” The probe allegedly has re vealed that Harbarugh picked upthe other suspects in his 2003Chevrolet Blazer, driving it tothe school and parking it in a cit rus grove on the west side ofHardee Senior High School.

They allegedly dumped trash, candy, juice and more aroundthe property. They also allegedly placed the carcass of a hog in the commonsarea. Eggs were thrown, toilet paper tossed and signs damaged,Dey charged. In all, he said, “We could have put as many as 18 separatefelony charges on each one ofthem.” Dey noted all the suspects have been banned from schoolgrounds and from any and allschool functions for the nextyear. He commended Sheriff’s Office and school personnel for anexcellent job in handling thematter. Dey noted the campus was quickly returned to use by ex-pert crews. Two more arrests are expected soon, he concluded. explained Shackelford. “Our job is to protect the citi zens of Hardee County as effec tively and cost-effectively aspossible,” said Sheriff ArnoldLanier. “We reviewed all themajor vendors for emergencynotification service and Hyper-Reach gave us everything weneeded.

ROACH: I have a strange question to ask andhope you can answer it in yournewspaper article. Every timeI stand up from being in bed, Iget hiccups that last about aminute or so (at least a dozenhiccups). I was wondering ifthere is a medical reason forthis, or is it something that isjust a fluke that happens tome? —N.C. ANSWER: It's not just you; I have heard of several cases, andI suspect it's not that rare. It'sthought to be brought on by achange in position of the stom ach, which causes a reflex in thediaphragm. Esophageal irrita tion, especially from reflux dis ease (stomach acid goingbackward into the esophagus),also might be a cause. The booklet on heartburn ex plains reflux disease.

ROACH: I am an 85-year-old woman living ina nursing facility. A little beforemy arrival here, I began expe riencing night sweats. I haveseen my doctor regarding this,and he said he cannot help me.I feel weak when I wake in themorning, and I need to con stantly change the towels I putunder myself. This is a big con cern. —A.M. ANSWER: I take night sweats seriously. Tuberculosis is theclassic cause of night sweats,which is of immense concern ina nursing facility, where mostpeople are tested for TB yearly.But other chronic infections,high thyroid levels and evenblood and marrow diseases likelymphoma can show up withnight sweats. Most of the time, achest X-ray and blood tests,along with a careful exam, canmake the diagnosis. Other times,it's harder to find. More often, itgoes away as mysteriously as itcame. But it is worth anotherlook. DEAR DR. ROACH: Sev eral months ago, I developed ahernia on my right side, butwith no pain. My doctor said Ido not need an operation, be cause there is no pain. Do youagree? I am 74 and in excep tionally good health. ANSWER: A hernia is a weak ness or defect in the abdominal wall, through which abdominalstructures can pass. Watchfulwaiting is a reasonable choice foran asymptomatic hernia — onethat causes no symptoms —since only a minority of peoplewith a diagnosed hernia willneed surgery due to developmentof symptoms. The biggest risk ispart of the intestine comingthrough the hernia and becomingstuck, which is called a strangu lated hernia, and is a surgicalemergency. Since most peopledo very well with surgical repair,many surgeons recommend sur gery even on hernias with nosymptoms in order to preventthis complication. How YOU feel about it is the critical issue. If you feel morecomfortable getting it fixed nowto prevent the chance of futureproblems, tell him so, and ask tosee a surgeon.Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters,but will incorporate them in thecolumn whenever possible.Readers may email questions toToYourGoodHealth@med.cor nell.edu.

10A The Herald-Advocate, May 22, 2014 AAA Travel projects 36.1 million Americans will journey50 miles or more from homeduring the Memorial Day holi day weekend, a 1.5 percent in crease from the 35.5 millionpeople who traveled last year. Kicking off the summer driv ing season, more than eight in10 travelers will drive to theirdestinations. The Memorial Day holiday travel period is defined asThursday, May 22, to Monday,May 26. “A long and unusually harsh winter gave many Americansthe travel bug,” said Mark Jenk ins, spokesman, AAA —TheAuto Club Group. “Com-binerising temperatures with signs ofan improving economy, andtravel for the holiday should hita new post-recession high.” Highlights from the 2014 Me morial Day Travel Forecast in clude: E#/79<3+6+C2963.+C travel volume is expected toreach a new post-recession highwith 36.1 million Americanstaking a trip.

Improvements in several key economic factors are driving theexpectation for more holidaytravelers this year. “Consumerspending, disposable income,consumer confidence and theemployment outlook are trend ing up, which is welcomed newsfor the travel industry,” contin ued Jenkins. AAA expects that most driv ers will pay lower gas prices byMemorial Day weekend due torising supplies. AAA expectsholiday gas prices to be rela tively similar or even slightlyless than last year’s national Me morial Day average of $3.63 pergallon, though unexpected de velopments such as refineryproblems or international eventscould result in higher costs. "With many plans already made and budgets set, it is un likely that gas prices will have asignificant effect on travel planscompared to a year ago," Jenk ins said. AAA Forecasts Busiest Memorial Day In Years S S p p l l e e n n d d i i d d S S t t r r a a w w b b e e r r r r i i e e s s Strawberries are so lovely. Is it any wonder that the strawberryplant is a member of the rosefamily, and that the heart-shapedbaubles we gobble up are not re ally berries, but the enlarged re ceptacle of the plant's flower? Strawberries are very much a product of their environment:finicky, with the luscious fruit ei ther providing an incomparablepop of flavor or the most disap pointing let down of blandness. Idon't know anyone who hasn'thad more than their share oftasteless strawberries. Strawberries like their soil and weather just so. It also appearsthey have suffered from our lov ing them too much. This once-delicate fruit is now commonlygrown on Ponderosa-sizedfarms. What were once tiny jew els are now bright red golf balls(all the easier for field hands topick). It's widely believed thatthis attempt to bring mass quan tities to a demanding public hascompromised the strawberry's ir resistible sweet-tart flavor. Whileit's not impossible to find a ripe,honeyed berry in your grocery,when late spring comes, I sug gest you hit the road and head ei ther to a farmer's market or smallfarm stand. Beside the color, the smell and the beguiling taste of seasonalstrawberries, the great news isthat they're good for you! Theyare on almost everyone's best-food list, mainly because of thehigh amount of vitamin C they KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis deliver, more than oranges perserving, and with less sugar.They're also packed with fiberand antioxidants. Strawberriesare considered a superfood. When choosing strawberries there is one important check point: smell. If your prospectivepackage of berries doesn't giveyou that familiar waft of sweet ness, then set it back down. Theother aspect to check for is mold.Strawberries are highly perish able, don't travel well and areknown to start spoiling even asthey sit there looking attractive.When you get home, refrigeratethem, and then wash as needed.In addition to strawberry icecream, shakes, pies and jams, ora bowl of fresh strawberries andcream, there are other ways toaccentuate these treasures. Strawberries pair well with many herb and citrus flavors,such as mint, lemon verbena, thejuice and rind of lemons and or anges. You also can experimentwith herbs such as tarragon, basiland lemon thyme. A little sugaror a great honey also will en hance the flavor of even the mostperfectly ripe berry. Whippedcream, creme fraiche or a goodquality Greek yogurt pair per fectly strawberries. Strawberries also go well in savory dishes, and can be used insalads and sauces to add a brightdimension of flavor. Like somany foods, the essence ofstrawberries will intensify whenroasted, either for desserts or asa surprising and attractive addi tion to side vegetables, such as carrots or beets.

AG ADVENTURE H H C C S S B B W W i i l l l l R R a a z z e e O O l l d d B B u u i i l l d d i i n n g g s s 9!"Of The Herald-Advocate What goes up eventually comes back down. This is true even for build ings. Over the upcoming sum mer break, five old buildings,maybe six, will be demolished atWauchula Elementary Schooland the former junior-high cam pus. In June of 2012, Rob Krahl, director of educational facilities,asked to demolish two buildingsat WES. At that time, the SchoolBoard instructed Krahl to planout which other buildings alsoneeded to be removed. The board has now given Krahl the go-ahead to demolishthe sheriff’s trailer, snack shack,attendance, ACE and teachers’lounge, which are mostly lo cated on the old middle schoolgrounds and are no longer use ful. According to a report from Krahl, “These buildings … werea part of a Castaldi Analysiscommissioned by the board andapproved by the Florida Depart ment of Edu-cation.” The analy sis said that making thenecessary upgrades to use thebuildings in the future isn’t cost-effective and they should berazed. Krahl had asked for proposals from three separate contractorsfor demolition of the five build ings and received quotes fromRobcor Contracting for $19,000,Cross Construction for $25,780and Kimmins Con-tacting for$31,610. The School Board hascontracted with these companiesin the past. During the regularly sched uled School Board meeting onMay 8, Vice Chairwoman TeresaCrawford asked the other mem bers and Krahl to walk onto thecampus to look at the buildings.The meeting was then temporar ily adjourned so all of the mem bers could take a tour. Upon touring the grounds, the board members spotted whatwas the old junior high cafeteria,which is located right behind the newer cafeteria. When back inthe board room and continuingwith the meeting, Krahl said thatbuilding has had break-ins, hasbeen vandalized and also hastermites. He noted it costs money to try and keep up the building afterevery break-in, even though thebuilding is no longer in use.However in the past, the build ing has been used as storage andthere are several items in thebuilding. Board member Paul Samuels then asked why not just demol ish the old cafeteria along withthe other five buildings? Krahlsaid it would be cheaper to doso, as he was told demolishingthe building by itself would cost$24,000. Upon hearing this, the mem bers voted to contract RobcorContracting and include the de struction of the cafeteria overthis summer break, as long asthe total cost of demolition doesnot exceed $43,000. If it does,then the building will be torndown at a later date. Krahl is currently working on getting a reduced price from thecontractor to include the build ing. what is and is not a fertilizerplant. Currently codes do not clas sify companies that blend or mixvarious fertilizers and nutrientstogether as a fertilizer plant. Fer tilizer plants are defined as mak ing the base products by variouschemical processes and reac tions. Johnson said he did not want to cause any existing or pro posed businesses problems butfelt the board should wait untilstaff can create descriptionsclassifying what is and is not afertilizer plant before voting. Commissioners Sue Birge and Colon Lambert said theyeach separately toured theFlorikan facility in Sarasota andliked what they saw. Edger Davis, President of Florida Fertilizer in Wauchula,explained the differences be-tween a mixing plant and whathe considers a fertilizer plant,such as an ammonia facility. Davis said he doesn’t see any problem with Florikan, or theexisting two fertilizer compa nies, being located in the Com-merce Park. Eric Rosenthal, President of Florikan, said all the companydoes is coat existing productswith a polymer material, similarto that used for truck bed linersand mattresses. He said theporous coating allows water toslowly enter and exit the mate rial, which controls how fast thenutrients are released. He said the company coats urea and compound fertilizersand does not handle any ammo nium nitrate. Lambert then said he does not feel the company should be clas sified as a fertilizer producer anddid not think a Major SpecialException was necessary. After making the motion, Commissioner Mike Thompsonalso directed staff to remove theterm fertilizer plant from theUnified Land DevelopmentCode and come up with moreaccurate descriptions for the var ious businesses that handle fer tilizer. “I don’t like the term,” Thompson said. “It leaves toomuch up to interpretation. Idon’t think it adequately de scribes anything.” Don Chancey, a P&Z board member, cautioned commission ers about “opening a slipperyslope” by declaring the companyas a blending and mixing facil ity. He said the companies in theCommerce Park also sell chem icals. Chancey said the Fire Department and the Building andZoning Department need to beon the same page with thesecodes when determining how abusiness is classified. 9%Of The Herald-Advocate A company that puts a poly mer coating around fertilizerswas given approval by theHardee County Commission tolocate in the Hardee CountyCommerce Park without havingto apply for a special exception. Commissioners voted 4-1 on Thursday night to classifyFlorikan, along with other simi lar fertilizer mixing and blend ing companies in the county, asa manufacturer of finished pro-ducts instead of a fertilizer plant.Commissioner Grady Johnsonvoted against the motion. Florikan is currently operat ing in a light industrial park inSarasota County off Interstate75 and is planning on moving itsproduction facility to HardeeCounty by mid-2015. The company will build an 80,000-square foot building atthe Commerce Park after re-ceiving a $2 million grant fromthe Hardee County EconomicDevelopment Authority. Florikan will also contribute around $2 million to constructthe facility, which is expected tocost about $4 million. It is ex pected to employ around 50 peo ple.

A. As a veteran, beware of pension advance products that offer to pay military retirees a lump-sum payout in return for theirmonthly retirement payments. The products may amount to paymentof only pennies on the dollar, and the advances are reported to carryinterest rates from 27 percent to 106 percent, which can threaten asafe retirement. There are many pension advance companies on the Internet, often with patriotic-sounding names and logos. If you’re offered apension advance, stay away from arrangements that allow a creditorto access the account where you get your benefits. Instead, get trusted financial expert advice if you need emer gency funds. Additionally, some individuals and companies use VA’s Aid & Attendance pension benefit as a hook to sell services The Aid & Attendance benefit is for eligible disabled veterans who require theaid and attendance of another person, or who are housebound. Individuals or companies looking to sell their services may offer to help veterans obtain Aid & Attendance benefits, but they moveassets into irrevocable trusts for qualification. When being solicited,watch out for: —A lawyer or veteran adviser who offers to get the Aid & At tendance benefit for a fee. Federal law prohibits VA-accredited ad visers from charging to assist with VA claims. However, at times a“consultation fee” is charged up front. —A claim from a paid adviser stating that he can get the bene fits for you more quickly than anyone else. All VA claims must gothrough the standard evaluation process, which no one can bypassto get it done faster. —An offer to help financially secured veterans quality or Aid & Attendance by taking control of their finances and moving assetsinto inaccessible trusts. This may disqualify a veteran from otherbenefits. —Retirement homes using the lure of Aid & Attendance to get veterans to move in on the implied promise that they will get thebenefit. If the claim is denied, the veteran may not be able to affordto remain in the facility. E-mail claims questions to askso@legion.org.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, May 22, 2014 PAGE ONE By JIM KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Bowling Green City Commission voted 4-0 Tuesdaynight, May 13, to begin discus sions of a 25-year lease withHardee County for a $1 millionpermanent fire/rescue buildingto be located at the current loca tion, the west end of Pyatt Parkon West Main Street. The Current location has a 2004 hurricane FEMA single-wide trailer and an adjacent polebarn that leaks. The current lo cation has a staff of two. Hardee Fire/Rescue chief Jim Stillwagon said a new buildingwould have three bays for equip ment and housing room for up toeight staff. He proposed the newbuilding would initially have astaff of two for the fire truck andtwo for the ambulance, with afifth person – a supervisor – added soon. City Commissioner Sam Fite is on the nine-member Planningand Development Committeethat wants a permanent fire/res cue building in the city, to com plement the permanent facilitiesin Wauchula and Zolfo Springs. Stillwagon hopes the pro posed new facility can be builtfor about $1 million. Years agothe city had its own volunteerfire department but not any more. Hardee County is respon sible for fire/rescue service. The FEMA trailer is unsafe in storm conditions, the fire truckis fading from the sun, waterleaks on the equipment which isexposed to the public, and thefacility does not meet standardsfor a fire station, he said. He said an ambulance was re cently stolen in DeSoto Coun-ty.An ambulance generally hasnarcotic drugs if needed for pa tients being treated and trans ported. “The goal is to have a fourman station. It is now a two-manstation. The potential is for twomen for the ambulance and twofor the fire engine.” Fite was a member of the for mer city volunteer fire depart ment. Fire insurance is less in areas served by a nearby certified firedepartment. In other action the commis sion voted 4-0 to establish aCommunity RedevelopmentArea (CRA) in Bowling Green.The 195-acre area would en velop 308 properties and include the Hwy 17 and Main Street cor ridors and the proposed newcommerce park. This is to accu mulate ad valorem tax money toimprove “slum and blighted”areas of the city. Once in effect the ad valorem tax money collected by HardeeCounty is capped at the currentlevel and future increases go tothe CRA, which can be a newboard or the current city com mission. Taxes from all newconstruction in the area go to theCRA, 95 percent being retainedby the CRA and 5 percent to thecounty. This has been proposed by city manager Jerry Conerly, whosaw a CRA established yearsago in Wauchula when he wasan employee and later city com mission member. His daughterJessica Newman current runs theWauchula CRA, and theWauchula City Com-missionsits as the CRA board. Thisbrings in several hundred thou sand dollars a year. A typical CRA can be for 30 years, with an option to extendit. A CRA would support devel opment and growth in the city. County Commissioners Mike Thompson and Colon Lambertattended the meeting. Thomp-son said the proposed city com merce park has been gettingdevelopment funds from thecounty IDA and EDA and theproposed CRA could lead to thecity not getting any more of thedevelopment funds. The city commission voted 40 to give $500 toward the coun tywide fireworks for Saturday,July 5, at Pioneer Park at the re quest of Benny Hash, chairmanof the Hardee Builders Associa tion. Hash said the county haspledged $5,000 and the city ofWauchula $2,000 for the fire works. Hash will also give $500. Years ago, when the city had a volunteer fire department,Bowling Green had its own fire works for citizens on July 4. The commission voted 4-0 to approve the first reading of anordinance to amend the impactfees on new construction in thecity. City Manager Jerry Con-erly said the city plans to waivethe impact fees for a period oftime to encourage more homesto be built within the city limits. Randy Dillingham of CS & L, CPAs presented the 2012-13 city audit report. He said the city wasin a “good financial position.”Debt service will be about$70,000 next year, he said. The commission appointed Leslie Long and Troy Jackson tothe city recreation committee.Committee chair Jean Kelly saidthe group plans to sponsor in2015 an annual canoe race onPeace River form BowlingGreen to Pioneer Park in ZolfoSprings. It will be held in thespring or summer. She said the city will also be displaying 24 U.S. flags alongHwy. 17 on Memorial Dayweekend this year and on futurenational holiday weekends. City commissioner Steve Spinks wants welcome to Bowl ing Green signs on the highwayat the north and south city limits.He noted the city was improvingthe median on Banana Street. Fite’s request for a four-way stop at Jones St. and DoyleParker Ave. was approved. Attending the meeting were Spinks, Fite, Stuart Durastantiand Mayor Shirley Tucker.Commissioner Richard Baronewas absent.

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-AdvocateMain Street was filled with cheering crowds and triumphant runners as the third annual Send MeMissions 5K Run/Walk took place on May 9. Runners of all ages took to the streets of downtown Wauchula to take part in this yearly event and help raise money for the non-profit organization. The event has seen a steady increase since it started in 2012, when 320 people registered to run. This year, 433 people regis tered to take part in this 5K and $17,500 was raised for SMM. This was just $500 less than what race director Jamie DavisSamuels hoped to raise. All of the money goes di rectly into helping the organiza tion run for a full year, allowing it, in turn, to help others on mission trips and local and foreign mission projects. Runners times were calcu lated with the help of a disposable chip that was attached to each runner/walkers bib. The time was electronically transmit ted, allowing the event staff to print out and post the results in the park for all to see.

12B The Herald-Advocate, May 22, 2014 The so-called study of psychology is nothing less than a simple subject written in a most confusing way. In years past when doing my country shows, I sang the song that Ernest Tubb, the old troubador wrote and sang himself, I Would Walk Across Texas With You. But now that I am older and represent like a bird next for every pain in existence, I dont sing I Would Walk Across Texas With You. Instead I would sing I Would Try To Crawl Across Texas. Last night I heard on TV that in California they passed a new law in certain restaurants you can take your dog with you to dine out fit and proper like regular folks. But my concern is what if my dog Soup Bone dont like the waitress and suddenly takes a big hunk out of her leg even though he didnt see it on the menu. With her hollering and Soup Bone barking, when Sugar Possum with a stern look on her face, with every word crackling like popcorn in the ket tle, says, Truman, I guess you know that yall are making a scene! In ones lifetime should they fail to knock upon the door of knowledge, then why ever should it open to let them in. The one good thing about having auto insurance is once you have got it, then you are just as legal as anybody else to go out and have yourself a wreck. In my fifth divorce she had me charged for being too good to her. Let me tell you, brothers and sisters, that was one charge that was hard to beat. Last night Sugar Possum asked me would I like a TV dinner for my supper? I told her no, but did she have a little something maybe more in the like of a Radio special? One time years ago my wife at the time told me she was not sure that she loved me anymore and she was moving out to sort out her feelings. I did not really mind her moving out so she could sort out her feelings, but that 172-ton mammoth overload U-Haul truck she rolled up in to her stuff was quite another. I ask what procedure is used in shooting some self-appointed intellectual out of a big roaring cannon? This question brings to my memory of movies back to the times that cowboy Gene Autry was one of the western cowboys and his sidekick Pat Buckstrem was nearly killed while they were trying to shoot him out of one of them big barrel cannons. Last night I told them I welcomed one and all alike to the We Might Be Old But Were Bold Men Only Senior Citizens Club. However we were to enjoy speeches from seven world, national and international renowned speakers. However I am the only one of the seven to make it. If we are not politically informed then we are potentially a vot ing disaster. Lie to cover; truth to reveal. I have so oftentimes wondered back in ancient times when the Roman soldiers wore metal gear to protect them in battle from the most brutal and abhorrent weapons known to man in those times, but did the Roman soldiers who were wearing their metal gear maybe have a lightening rod attached? Could it be that know-it-alls have exposed so many of their business secrets to others that this is why they live in their big sprawling homes and drive the best on the highways money can buy, and Blabbermouth will drives a wreck of a car and lives in the same old shanty that could go at any time now but he is still blabbing.

STATE OF FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMITThe Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C. (Mosaic) Fort Green Mine Complex [Permit No. FL0027600; PA File No. FL0027600-021-IW1S/NR] for the discharge of treated excess process wastewater, stormwater runoff, and groundwater from five (5) existing outfalls designated D-001, D-002, D003, D-005, and D-006. All outfalls have upstream and downstream surface water monitoring stations except for Outfall D-003, which discharges to Horse Creek (Class III Fresh Waters). All remaining outfalls discharge to Payne Creek (Class III Fresh Waters). Both Horse Creek and Payne Creek eventually flow into the Peace River, also Class III Fresh Waters. The applicants discharge to ground waters is also addressed in this permit. The applicants mailing address is: Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C., 13830 Circa Crossing Drive, Lithia, Florida 33514-3953. The Fort Green Mine Complex is located at 10741 State Road 37 South, Bradley in Polk & Hardee Counties, Florida, and geographically at: Latitude: 27 40' 12.84" N Longitude: 82 00' 44.38" W The intent to issue and application file are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department's Division of Water Resource Management, Phosphate Management Program Office, 13051 N Telecom Parkway, Temple Terrace, Florida 33637-0926. Please phone (813) 470-5911 for an appointment. The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, within fourteen days of receipt of notice. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed permitting de cision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Com monwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an extension of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Office of General Counsel before the end of the time period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, also allows that any person who has asked the Department in writing for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for an extension of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must con tain the following information, as indicated in Rule 28-106.201, Florida Administrative Code: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any e-mail address, any facsimile number, and telephone number of the petitioner, if the petitioner is not represented by an attorney or a qualified representative; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the Department's decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the Department's proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the Department to take with respect to the Department's proposed action. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the Clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boule vard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for hold ing an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes. 5:22cSTATE OF FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF DRAFT PERMITThe Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its preparation of a draft re newal permit (FL0044229) which authorizes the discharge to discharge operate wastewater treatment and effluent disposal facilities for Units 3 of the Richard J.

The Hardee Power Station is permitted under Permit Number FL0041751. The permit re-authorizes the mixing zones for pH and unionized ammonia. The permit also authorizes a thermal mixing zone under Rule 62-302.520(6), F.A.C., but does not include a ther mal variance under Section 316(a), Clean Water Act. Any interested person may submit written comments on the draft permit to the Department or may submit a written request for a public meeting to Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Industrial Wastewater Program, Mail Station 3545, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400, Attention: Mr. Marc Harris, P.E., in accordance with Rule 62-620.555, Florida Administrative Code.

May 22, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C Q: Could you tell me when "Longmire" is coming back? —Terry and Pat V., via email A: A&E's highest-rated origi nal drama of all time will returnfor a 10-episode third season onMonday, June 2, at 10/9c. I re cently spoke with series star Cas sidy Freeman (who plays CadyLongmire), and she gave me alittle hint as to what to expectthis season: "The first season of theshow really setup who thesecharacter are.We got into therhythm of hav ing a crimeevery week or every two weeks,and then last season I felt like westarted to see things happen toeach of these characters, and theproverbial s#!t hit the fan. Lastseason's tagline was: 'A storm iscoming.' And now this season,the storm has come, and you'llsee how people deal with thewreckage. There's going to be alot of change. How do they puttheir lives back together? Howdo they fight to keep what theylove?" And speaking of love, will Cady and Branch continue to ex plore their on-again/off-againrelationship? "Absolutely," Cas sidy said. "It's really, really com plicated. At this point, it is nolonger a don't-tell-my-dad taboo.Now it's more about if they reallywant to be together, and if theyare each other's priority." Q: Is "The Killing" coming back for another season? Iknow it was canceled last sea son, and then AMC decided togive it a third season. Has it es caped death again? —Carl T., Seattle A: In an almost unprece dented move, "The Killing" hasescaped yet another cancelation. This past September, AMC did indeed decide not to renew thecrime/mystery drama for a fourthseason, and that's when Netflixstepped up to the plate. Netflix,which has been the series' exclu sive digital partner for all threeseasons, will air a six-episodefourth (and final) season, with"The Killing" joining the ranksof superb Netflix original serieslike "Arrested Development,""Orange Is the New Black,""House of Cards" and manymore. The complete fourth sea son of "The Killing" will beavailable beginning Aug. 1. Q: Can you tell me if "The Carrie Diaries" will return thisfall? —Denise G., via email A: Along with "The Tomor row People" and "Star-Crossed,"the not-so-great-in-the-ratings"The Carrie Diaries" has beencanceled by the CW to makeroom for new programming."The Flash," "iZombie," "Janethe Virgin" and "The Messen gers" will join the CW's growinglineup of supernatural and edgydramas. Q: I am amazed every week by "Hannibal," especially thewriting and all of the actors.Do you know yet if it'll be backfor another season? —Scott R., via email A: The dark and brilliant psy chological thriller — which starsHugh Dancy and Mads Mik-kelsen — will return to NBC fora third season, most likely inspring 2015. Come back nextweek, when I'll be sharing NBC'sentire 2014-15 schedule (witheach networks' schedules to fol low in subsequent weeks).Write to Cindy at King FeaturesWeekly Service, P.O.

STRANGEBUT TRUE By Samantha Weaver Q: I've always wanted my lawn to have those neat cross-hatch patterns like the pros do.How do I mow to get those pat terns? —A Reader, via email A: Mowing in a specific pat tern isn't the only way, nor thebest way, to get those neatcheckerboard stripes. A healthylawn and proper mowing tech nique also are important. Neatpatterns, or stripes, are made no ticeable by bending the grassblades in one direction on onestripe, and another direction onan opposing stripe. Here are a few tips:K)19C5I?EB=?G5B2<145C Cutting the grass too low to theground damages the plant, makesit grow unevenly, and leaves itvulnerable to weeds, diseasesand pests.

K&5F5B3EDG5D7B1CC+89C one's a no-brainer, but cuttingwhen dew or rain is still heavyon the grass will prevent a cleancut, damage the grass, causeclumping and keep you fromseeing that ideal pattern.

This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I occasionally see ads for a pack age that will allow owners toteach their cats to use the toilet.Is that for real? I can't eventrain my cat to stay off thecounter. —Fred H., Milwaukee ))!D9C@?CC92<5D? train cats to use a toilet ratherthan the litter box, but it's not aneasy task. That's why those adsfor training instructions crop upand then disappear, at least for awhile. Still, even owners who don't care if their cats can do cart wheels on command can teachthem some behaviors that makelife easier for both parties. Train ing cats to use the litter box is aprime example, and offers somehints as to how to train them todo other things, like stay off thecounter. A litter box is meant to provide the closest thing to how catseliminate when they're outside — they hide their stools from po tential predators by coveringthem with sand or loose soil. So,training often consists of takinga new cat or a weaned kitten andplacing it in the litter box. To get a cat off the counter, try to figure out why it wants to beup there. Cats instinctively likehigh ground. The smell of foodmay be drawing the cat upward,or even just the memory thatfood was on the counter, andtherefore may be again. When training cats, it's better to convince them that they wantto do something, rather thanforcing them to do it or punish ing undesirable behavior. Takeadvantage of their natural in stincts to develop your own waysto train them, and combine thattraining with a specific rewardwhen the cat responds positively.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

Collecting Q: I have a chenille bedspread that hasbeen in my family forat least 75 years. It hasa log cabin design andis in fairly good condi tion. Is this a keeper? —Barbara, Tyler, Texas A: The first chenille bedspreads were madeusing thick cotton threads, iden tical to those found in candlewicks. Although the earliest ex amples of this type of embroi dery date back to ColonialAmerica, chenille didn't reallybecome popular until the Victo rian era. Until the 1940s, almostall of the bedspreads were madein Georgia and by hand. Later,companies such as Cabin Craftbegan mechanically producingthem in great numbers. Spreadsmade by such companies asMorgan Jones, Bates and Hof mann are especially desirable. The value of a chenille bed spread depends on several fac tors: Condition, the pattern andthe colors used all are important.Prices can vary. Spotted recentlyin Phoenix were three excep tional chenille spreads: An elab orate peacock, $85; a patrioticWorld War II design with war planes and military ships, $125;and a ranch scene with horsesand cowpokes, $150. Q: I purchased a cast-iron bulldog several years ago at aflea market and recently dis covered it actually is adoorstop. Is it worth keeping? —Mike, Las Cruces, N.M. A: It depends. Since reproduc tions have flooded themarketplace, it is al ways a good idea to ex amine them withsuspicion. Cast-irondoorstops seem to ebband flow in popularity.During the 1980s, inter est reached a fever pitchand prices soared. That fever has since broken to quite an extent. If yourdoorstop is authentic, it might beworth keeping. Typical prices in clude a Colonial woman withcat, $325; a bunny, $95; a basketof tulips, $150; and a coveredwagon, $150. All of these pricesreflect vintage examples, not re productions. Reproductionsoften can be found in the $25 to$50 range. Be care, since manyof the fakes are aged to look oldand real. Q: I have a rub-stained glass toothpick holder that was asouvenir of Chicago. I think itprobably is from the Victorianera. I have been offered $75 forit. —Beth, Decatur, Ill. A: Take the money and run. According to several collectors Icontacted, your toothpick holderis valued in the $25 to $45 range.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O.
