BARN FIRE By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A fourth teen has been charged in last week’s vandal ism at Hardee Senior HighSchool. Jailed this Tuesday morning was Justin Reed Woods, 18, of855 Pierce Road, Wauchula. He was booked into the Hardee County Jail by Det. An drew McGuckin on four crimi nal offenses: trespassing onschool grounds, a second-degreemisdemeanor; and third-degree felonies of preventing or hinder ing firefighting by emptying fireextinguishers, grand theft of afire extinguisher and damage toproperty/criminal mischief. Woods remained behind bars as of Wednesday morning in lieuof posting a bond to gain his re lease pending trial. Jailed last week on the same charges were Carl Kenneth Dou glas, 18, of 20640 Farrell Road,Zolfo Springs; Gage Paul Har barugh, 18, of 4850 Freeman Ave., Bowling Green; and Ar mando Daniel Alamia, 18, of3493 Marion St., Zolfo Springs. A fifth suspect remains to be arrested. “It is always disappointing when a few students choose toengage in this type of destruc tive behavior,” Dr. MichelePolk, the school’s principal, saidin the vandalism’s aftermath. “I do think it is also important to note that we are fortunate thatmost of our students, 99.9 per cent of them, don't choose to dothis type of thing and most areactually offended by it, particu larly when they see our alreadyhard-working custodial stafftasked with the additional choreof cleaning up the mess. “Despite that day's events, she concluded, “we remain veryproud of the 99.9 percent of ourWildcats that take pride in theirschool.” The five vandals are accused of the discharge of five fire ex tinguishers, coating every inchof flooring and furnishings inthe gymnasium; draining ofjuice bottles on the wooden gymfloor; posting of large porno graphic pictures on walls every where; damage to a golf cartused by the school resource of ficer; release of five cows fromthe ag barn; placement of a hogcarcass in the middle of thecommons area; and other break-ins and similar damages.

The Planning and Zoning Board hearing to consider thiswill be held at 6 p.m. nextThursday, June 5, in the HardeeCounty Commission boardroomin Annex I, 412 W. Orange St.,Wauchula. Officially, it is a request for a Large Scale Amendment tochange the Hardee CountyComprehensive Plan and its Fu ture Land Use Map for 1,204acres from Agriculture FutureLand Use to Rural Village andConservation Future Land Use. The Rural village is a unique designation for a mix of residen tial, office, retail and light indus try, almost a self-containedcommunity. Because some of the property is along the Payne Creek corri dor, it will not be useable for theproposed development, whichwill be a 1,100-acre planned de velopment to include 1,245 sin gle-family and multi-familyhomes, about half of which willbe age-restricted in a 55-plussub-community. It will also have218 RV spaces, 20,000 squarefeet of office space, 40,000square feet of retail and 300,000square feet of light industry. Limiting it to 1,245 singlefamily homes brings it underthe1,250 threshold and removesit from scrutiny by the CentralFlorida Regional PlanningCouncil as a Development ofRegional Impact.

Theysay there will be just nine tropi cal storms with three becominghurricanes and one reaching aCategory 3 Major storm status. But 10 years ago, it only took one hurricane swerving andcoming straight up the PeaceRiver to devastate HardeeCounty. What’s the chances it could happen this year? Some peoplewill bet it won’t happen and betotally unprepared and otherswill take a pound of caution instaying alert. To make it easier for Floridi ans to be prepared, Gov. RickScott signed a law in early Maydeclaring May 31 through June8 as a special sales tax holiday,allowing people to purchase tax-free hurricane safety items.There are limits, flashlights cost ing less than $20, batteries up to$30, tarps and or other water proof flexible sheeting for $50or less, portable generators up to$750 and moderately priced ra dios, first aid kits and food cool ers. “We should not focus so much on overall seasonal activity. Overall activity doesn’t translateinto telling you what kind of im pact will happen in a certainspot. Disasters are local,” re minded Colorado State Univer sity weather re-searcher PhilKlotzbach and his more well-known colleague Dr. WilliamGray. Both attended the 28th annual Governor’s Hurricane Con-fer ence in Orlando in mid-May andexpressed concerns about the 19 million Floridians who mayhave gotten complacent abouthurricanes since the multiplehurricanes to strike the state in2004-05. There was Hurricane Andrew which hit the lower east coast in1992, then hurricanes Charley,Frances and Jeanne of 2004 andWilma in 2005. “Florida willhave another hurricane. It’s justa matter of where and when,”warned Richard Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Cen ter.

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. Principal Polk said quick ac tion was taken to protect stu dents and to preserve the crimescene. “Initially, students were kept from accessing certain areas ofthe school so that the sheriff’sdeputies could complete theirdocumentation of the vandal ism,” she said, adding, “How ever, by 8:10 a.m. students werepermitted to move about theschool grounds as normal.” Disruption to routine was minimal, Polk noted. “Our phys ical education classes were relo cated for the school day so thatcleanup in the gymnasium couldbe completed.” Dey said Dep. Daniel Gibson, the school’s resource officer, re viewed video footage of the fivevandals in the act, as captured bythe school’s surveillance cam eras. Further, rumors circulatingaround the campus were inves tigated. Soon, Dey said, suspects were developed as detectives fol lowed all leads. Arrests followedshortly behind. 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. Once there, the group walked through a culvert and enteredschool property, Dey alleged. From there, they gained entry into the gym through an openwindow in the weight room.Once inside, the major alleged,they emptied the contents ofseveral fire extinguishers, coat ing everything with powder. The spree began at about 3 a.m., Dey said, and lasted forabout two hours. During that time, they took the Sheriff’s Office golf cart androde around campus, crashinginto various items and damagingthe golf cart. Its windshield alsowas broken. 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. hits is the time residents aremostly on their own, the expowill include a variety of ex-hi bits and information from Fire-Rescue, law enforcementdepartments, the American RedCross, Nu-Hope Elder CareServices, the National WeatherService and scores of others. The Hardee High ROTC will present the flags and HardeeCounty Commission ChairmanRick Knight will be the keynotespeaker. People will be able to find out about generators, evacuationroutes and procedures, stormshelters, medical supplies, car ing for the elderly and manyother useful bits of information. Once again, the most impor tant thing to remember is thatwhen disaster strikes, the peoplewho are prepared and re-source ful are the ones most likely tosurvive. While Hardee County doesn’t have to worry so much about thedreaded storm surge, the strongwinds, torrential rain and flood ing, tornadoes and, perhaps, thelengthy power outages fromfallen trees mandates that resi dents of the county be preparedto handle matters on their own.When roads are blocked, orwashed out, help may be hard tocome by. It is a simple matter to put aside the food and disposableplates/utensils, medical suppliesand extra medicines, trash bags and plastic sheeting, bleach andother cleansers, tools and ply wood that will enable a personor family to better survive. It’s also the right time of year to trim back any bushes or treelimbs which can become a haz ard and be prepared to bringlawn chairs and other possibleflying objects into the shed orhome. People in low-lying areas may need to stay with relatives or ina hurricane shelter for severaldays, even weeks. The primaryshelter in the county is at theHilltop Elementary/Junior High. The shelter at South Florida State College is only for peoplewith special needs and generallyrequires pre-registration. Be sure to contact the Hardee CountyEmergency Manage-ment Of fice at 404 W.

Get lessons now toensure their safety, their lives.For more information, call 773-3173. Save Your Child With Swim Lessons JUST A ‘NORMAL’ DAY Every third day, 24 hours for 28 years he was away from his family, working hard to provide for their needs. He was a good father, a faithful husband and respected within his community. He put forth a valiant effort to coach his sons’ base ball, soccer and football teams whenever he wasn’t working, whichwasn’t very often. But as a firefighter, he and his family knew that this came with the territory, 24 or 48 hours away from home, every other weekendaway and, sometimes, not knowing if he was coming home. This firefighter, I’ll call him “Frank,” was on a 48-hour shift. He was already up for 24 hours straight, no sleep, and now re-spond ing to a structure fire, a barn actually. Nothing major, right? Frank was a lieutenant on the fire engine, experienced, and knew that just because it was a barn did not mean it was just an “or dinary” fire. He knew to plan for the worst and hope and pray forthe best. Arriving on scene first, Frank gave the order to pull the 2inch hose line — big fire means big water — when a woman comesup, crying and saying that her husband was in the barn with theirgrandchildren. Frank knew there was no time to lose. Frank and his two men entered the well-involved barn — you know, the “ordinary” fire — and began a search. By this time thesecond fire engine, an ambulance and a tanker arrived and began toperform their assignments of fighting the fire and supplying waterto the engines, with the ambulance crew preparing for whatever theywere confronted with. Frank and his men found the grandfather, collapsed, uncon scious and not breathing. The two grandchildren were found, badlyburned but alive — barely. With three patients with life-threatening injuries, two more am bulances were needed to provide effective care. The fire was now under control and the firefighter/paramedics were giving CPR to the grandfather as the other ambulances wereattending to the secondand third-degree burns of the children. Frank and his men along with the other firefighters, paramedics and EMTs had not noticed that this place had a fami liarity to it. Then one of the firefighters spoke up, realizing that this was the home ofone of the off-duty firefighter’s parents, and those children were his. Just then, the off-duty firefighter and his wife arrived.The firefighter/father is a professional, trained to hold in his emotions until after the call. This is no normal day. He is a father,his children are seriously injured and his father may die. His wife,their mother, is frantic and crying. Her mother comes to try and con sole her while her children are hurting and her father-in law maydie. Frank and the other firefighters gather around the family and their brother firefighter and begin to pray, the only thing they cando that will make the difference. To be continued next week. The Fireside By James Stillwagon Hardee County Fire-Rescue Chief SERVICE-CONNECTED DISABILITY COMPENSATION Q. Am I eligible to apply for service-connected disa bility compensation? A. If you are suffering from a disability that was caused or worsened while you were on active duty for the military, you maybe eligible for VA’s service-connected disability compensation. Remember, with each service connection, you must be able to prove your medical condition is related to your service. This can bedone through a medical statement from a qualified provider. Thefollowing are five ways to establish if your disability is service-con nected: Direct service connection — First, you must have a disease, in jury, illness or occurrence in service which produces a chronic de bilitating condition. Second, you must have the same or closelyrelated condition presently. And last, there must be a link betweenthe two, either through interval medical treatment for the conditionor a statement from a qualified medical person. Direct service connection may also be established when the chronic debilitating condition did not begin to produce symptomswhile on active duty but did manifest within a certain time periodafter exit from active duty. Presumptive service connection — The veteran must have served in certain places in the world, at certain times and/or duringcertain operations. Examples include exposure to Agent Orange andother criteria as outlined in 38 CFR 3.309. Secondary service connection — This is when a service-con nected condition is shown to be the cause of another disability. Forexample, if a veteran is service-connected for a right-knee disability, and the left knee begins to have issues due to uneven weight bearing,then the left knee would be service-connected as secondary. Aggravation — If a veteran enters active duty with a pre-exist ing condition and the condition becomes worse, this may result inservice-connection due to aggravation. USC 1151 Claim — This is when willful negligence and/or mis conduct occur in a VA health-care facility, resulting in a chronic de bilitating condition.

It's alsoenergy efficient, as it won't heatup your kitchen and also helps toretain more nutrients in yourfoods during the cooking pro-cess. In some cases, a microwaveis the best way to cook a dish, es pecially vegetables, becausethey'll have a better taste and tex ture. The history of the microwave oven goes back to 1946, whenDr. Percy Spencer, an electronicsgenius and war hero, was touringone of the laboratories at theRaytheon Company. The com pany was testing a vacuum tubecalled a magnetron, the powertube that drives a radar set. AsDr. Percy stood in front of the"radar box," a candy bar in hispocket melted. Dr. Percy tried other experi ments with food, including usingpopcorn kernels. He designed ametal box around the magnetronwith microwave power. Engi neers developed and refined theidea, and the first commercialmicrowave oven hit the marketin 1947. However, original re sponse was not very good, and itwasn't until 1975 that a mi crowave oven was created forthe consumer kitchen. I encourage you to read the in KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow struction book that came withyour microwave. It's the easiestway to find out how to use all ofits functions. I especially lovemy microwave's warming ovenfeature. It cycles on and off, so Ican hold dinner for my husbandwhen he's running late, or keep acasserole dish warm during theholidays. When cooking on any power level other than HIGH, the ovencooks by cycling power on andoff, so the energy has a chance tomove through the food withoutovercooking it. MEDIUM andLOW power are generally usedto soften, melt and defrost foods,while HIGH is usually used forcooking. Carefully follow therecipe when using your mi crowave, and you'll have beauti fully cooked meals each time! This recipe for Quick Stuffed Bell Peppers is easy to assembleand cooks in minutes. It alsofreezes well, so double therecipe, and when you're pressedfor time, you'll have a home made, microwave meal in min utes! QUICK STUFFED BELL PEPPERS 8 bell peppers, tops removedand cut into a small dice, whitemembrane and seeds removedand discarded1 cup shredded Monterey Jackcheese, divided1 pound lean ground beef or turkey5 crackers, crushed into finecrumbs1 egg, slightly beaten1 (3 ounce) package dehy drated onion soup mix1 tablespoon steak sauce1 teaspoon Worcestershiresauce1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon black pepperTomato Sauce Topping:8 ounces tomato sauce2 tablespoons salsa1 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon black pepper2 tablespoons brown sugar 1. Using a large bowl, gently mix together the diced peppertops, 1/2 cup of cheese, groundmeat, crackers, egg, soup mix,steak sauce, Worcestershiresauce, salt and black pepper. 2. Stuff the prepared peppers with the ground meat mixtureand stand upright in a lightlygreased 12-by-8-by-2-inch bak ing dish. 3. Combine the tomato sauce, salsa, salt, pepper and brownsugar. Mix well and pour overpeppers. 4. Cover tightly with mi crowave-safe plastic wrap; foldback small edge for steam to es cape. Microwave on high 12 to15 minutes, until the filling is hotand pepper is almost tender. Letstand 6 to 8 minutes. Sprinklepeppers with the remainingcheese. Serve with a side of riceand a salad.Angela Shelf Medearis is anaward-winning children's author,culinary historian and the authorof seven cookbooks.

Please pray for one another and our nation. In honor of our great nation’s Memorial Day I will share with you a song I wrote some years ago and dedicate it to our troublednation, as well as you our readers. “America? America? What has happened to you? You are not praying the way you did, during the days of World War II, whenyour sons were over there in that terrible war, when you knew Godand He knew you, and He brought victory to our shores. “But times have came and times have changed, but I don’t un derstand, we’re walking not in the ways of God but in the ways ofman, trying to take God’s name off our money and out of our publicschools. Will we go down in history as the educated fools?” “America? America? We had a war in Vietnam we wanted off our hands, trying everything we knew through the strength of man,demonstrations and marches, write-in votes if you please, tryingeverything we know but humble to our knees. So go haughty nation,with your adultress says, we’ve sinned against our God above, andthere’s a price to pay.” ––––––– We have known for a long time now that we homo sapiens have five senses, and they are – the sense of smell, the sense of taste, the sense of hearing, the sense of sight, the sense of pain, and in re sponse to the present condition of the world, no sense at all. ––––––– Sugar Possum got mad at me last night just because our neigh bor P.B. gave me a live chicken for her to cook for us to be enjoyedlater. Sugar Possum said she wasn’t gonna cook no stolen chicken,and she also verified that his nickname P.B. stands for pulley boneas a tribute to his profession. Well, with that she slammed the doorwith her car keys in her hand. In other words, she was on the roadagain. But today she came back but unfortunately she caught melaying on the couch watching TV and nibbling on a chicken sand wich. ––––––– Dear Wife, I would choose to live with you in the chill of the night than in a mansion without you. ––––––– Never permit a well-intended promise to slowly over time materi alize into a lie. ––––––– My dumb cousin, the one who demands he be referred to as A.E. asin Albert Einstein, is in fact nothing more than a summer schooldropout. ––––––– Would you run that by me one more time please, backward if youwill, and this time at a little slower pace. ––––––– The notorius one, Doc Holiday, who was suffering from terminaltuberculosis, took a permanent leave of absence from his dentistrypractice. He was not a big man but a deadly one, who shared a rolein the famous shootout at OK Corral. His sweetheart’s nicknamewas Big Nose Kate, just in case you might need to know. ––––––– They say that education leads to cause and effect, but I’ll be honestwith you, it’s never bothered me. –––– ––– Little Tommy really wanted to know if his little classmate, LittleMiss Pigtails, was really his sweetheart, while sashaying, saying“It’s none of your bees wax, Buster!”Truman A.

May 29, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate People who have become dis abled and can no longer maneu ver around their homes may findhelp as near as a phone call. The Hardee County Com-mu nity Development Office hasfunds to help with needed re pairs and upgrades to enablefolks to cope with the specialneeds of disability or age. The funds are for people in single-family owner-occupiedresidences in Hardee County. Itincludes only normally con structed homes, not mobilehomes, and not rental properties. The program provides a 10year forgivable loan for home owners, who must maintainhomeowner insurance. It is likea recordable lien against theproperty, but is forgiven if theperson lives in the home andmaintains it for at least 10 years. Preference is given to those elderly and physically impairedpeople with low household in come. Low-income meansbelow 80 percent of the area me dian income. For one person,that is $26,050, for two $29,800.It goes higher as the family sizegrows. The goal is two-fold. One is to ensure people live in a struc turally sound home, and stressescorrecting code violations, suchas replacing doors or windows. It also includes making modi fications for elderly or physi cally impaired occupants of thehome so they can safely residein it. In general, the limit is $25,000 per home and depends on thefunds which become availablethroughout the year. For information, contact the Community Development Of-fice at Room 201, 412 W.

May 29, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A Over 50 girls spent several days learning the basics of thesport of volleyball. New Hardee High volleyball coaches Stephanie Mier andAmy Monts De Oca workedhard to prepare the first annualvolleyball clinic May 12-15 atthe high school gym. “Our goal was to create awareness of this sport and givethe young girls the opportunityto learn the game of volleyballbefore entering seventh grade,”said Mier, who has previouslybeen a junior high coach andwill be varsity head coach. The 55 girls attending were as young as 8 and up to 18 andspent the week learning a varietyof proper techniques, passing,hitting, blocking, setting andserving. In addition, they spent time with guest speakers. Gloria Solisof the Fellowship of ChristianAthletes spoke on “giving yourall at practice.” Ray Rivas,Wauchula Elementary Schoolcoach talked about the value ofteamwork. And, Melissa Her nandez gave information on “theimportance of strength and con ditioning.” The clinic ended with a small tournament where the girlsshowed their skills to their par ents and other visitors. Theywere given certificates of partic ipation and raffle prizes. Aslideshow presentation of thephotos and videos takenthroughout the week was thegrand finale. All girls received a “Queen of the Court” volleyball shirt.Sponsors contributing to thesuccess of the clinic includesStitches and Signs, HardeeSigns +Tees, Graham IncomeTax Service Inc., McDonald’s,Dunkin’ Donuts, Wendy’s,Sonic, Cats on Main and Sub way. All proceed raised from the event will be used for theHardee Senior High volleyballteam. “It was an amazing week and the girls learned so much. Wenever imagined having over 50girls at our first clinic. With thecommunity’s help this event wasa success. We can’t wait untilnext year!” exclaimed Monts DeOca, also a junior high coachwho has moved up to the highschool level.

(c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta Dear Editor: I cannot believe those young guys vandalized the high schoollike they did. Do they thinksomething like that is funny?Did they think they would getaway wit it? I am believing more and more the reason we see so much sickcrimes and people with rejectionand low self-esteem stems fromnot knowing God. I blame parents of the children in today’s generations. The par ents are the ones who shouldtake the responsibility to taketheir children to church and sothey can be taught about God’sunconditional love and that wewill all be held accountable forour actions on earth. I cringe when murder/suicide take place. I don’t see why thatone Tampa husband/father didnot just go bankrupt instead oftaking his whole family andhimself out in gunshots and fire. I believe our society is very ignorant when it comes to anvalue system. Too many peopleare hurting and yet do not turn to God or even think of conse quences from their decisions. I still cannot believe young men who would be graduatingfrom high school could eventhink of a crime so evil as thethings they did to their highschool. Would they do that totheir bedroom? I don’t thinkthey would even think of such athing. I wonder who the mastermind behind that crime would be andwhy would anyone want to fol low in the person’s footsteps? What kind of generation do we have coming in to adult hood? I am sure these youngguys came from a nice family.Yet no one sees these individ ual’s souls, minds, thoughts orbrains who are doing the evilworks. We cannot judge the book by its cover. God has the finalword. Nothing will go uncov ered. Justice will prevail in theend. Connie Rowe Wauchula Letter To The Editor Knowing God Can Lead to Good Life DEAR DR. ROACH: Why do people snicker when I tellthem I have RLS? They would n't laugh if they knew theamount of sleep deprivation Ihave endured during the 20years it took to correctly diag nose it. I think if it hadn't beenfor Sinemet (levodopa and car bidopa), a Parkinson's drug, Iwould have gone mad long ago.Has anyone discovered whatcauses it? —G.S.G. ANSWER: Restless leg syn drome causes an urge to movethe legs (and sometimes arms),which is worse at nighttime andis relieved by movement. It isusually accompanied by unpleas ant sensations in the legs. Whenaccompanied by sleep depriva tion, as yours has been, it is alsocalled periodic limb movementdisorder. The cause is known only in a minority of cases. About 40 per cent of cases seem to run in fam ilies, and several genetic factorshave been identified.

There are other alternativesas well. An expert in the condi tion, usually a neurologist, is es sential for severe cases. I think the name "restless leg syndrome" may be part of thereason why people don't take thiscondition as seriously as it de serves. After all, legs are sup posed to move, and being"restless" doesn't sound so bad— but as you know, it's a lotmore than that. For this reason,the new name, Willis-Ekbomdisease, is preferred by some.

IDA Begins BioNitrogen Bond Process process that has not been donebefore. Deutsche Bank would be is suing the bonds through the IDAand the county to qualify themas tax-free municipal bonds. Evers said he also sought the opinion of a bond attorney whenreviewing the proposed resolu tion. He said the IDA would notbe obligated or liable to repaythe bonds in any way if the com pany defaults. The IDA found examples of three surrounding counties —Charlotte, Lee and Collier —that have issued similar bondsrecently and will draft its ownbond issuing procedures to useon this project and potentiallyother companies in the future. The board felt the IDA should cover the expenses to developthe bond procedures since it canbe reused for other projects. Steven Southwell, a Wauchula attorney representingBioNitrogen, said the companyneeds the IDA/county to issuethe bonds as an Internal Rev enue Service requirement for the bonds to be tax free. IDA Executive Director Bill Lambert said he also wants touse Energy Florida, a non-profitgroup that deals with energy-re lated products in Florida, as aconsultant and vetting agencyfor the project. Southwell has previously said that Deutsche Bank will also beconducting its own vetting andfeasibility studies for the plant. IDA member Mike Prescott expressed some concerns overthe availability of enough bio mass in the area to feed theplant. He said he watched the rib bon-cutting ceremony BioNi-trogen recently held in HendryCounty, and he noticed the com pany would be bringing in sugarcane stalks by rail after theywere harvested for sugar. Prescott felt that sugar cane was a much more sustainableand economical feed stock thanusing orange trees or other veg etation currently availablearound Hardee County. Gene Davis made the motion and Prescott made the second. It passed 8-1 with Lory Dur rance voting against it. IDA Chairwoman Vanessa Hernandez asked Evers if thebond resolution impacts theIDA’s previous agreement toprovide the company with $1million to construct a rail spur tothe plant. The EDA has alsoagreed to give $1 million for arail spur. BioNitrogen is now asking to have the money advanced be fore construction begins on theplant. Lambert said the IDA can choose to modify its grant butfeels the company should un-dergo additional vetting beforethe board considers advancingthe money. He said if BioNitrogen wants to modify the EDA grant itshould let its previous agree ment expire later this year andapply for another grant and pro pose different terms. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Hardee County Industrial Development Authorityvoted to begin the process thatwould issue up to $300 millionin bonds to build a proposedurea plant in the Vandolah/FortGreen area of the county. BioNitrogen Holdings Corp. presented the IDA board with aninducement resolution to beginwork on issuing the bonds butthe proposal would still requirefurther approvals before theycould be sold. IDA attorney Ken Evers said signing the resolution wouldonly be expressing the board’swillingness to start the processand does not commit the IDA toanything at this time. He said further down the line the Hardee County Commissionmust also approve the projectbefore the bonds can be sold. The company plans to con vert excess and waste organicmaterial (branches, trees, etc.)into a high nitrogen-based ureafertilizer through a gasification May 29, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11A Collecting Q: I began collect ing beer cans a num ber of years ago whenI found a Denver Beercan at an area dumpsite. I discovered that itwas a product of theTivoli Brewery, whichno longer exists. Thatinspired me to see howmany other beer cans Icould find from defunct brew eries, and I currently havemore than 200. How can I de termine current values, and isthere a club for collectors youcan recommend? —Steve, via email A: Beer can collecting has re ally come into its own since the1970s. Even though most canssell at flea markets for about adollar a can, there are always ex ceptions. A Krueger Cream Alefrom Newark can commandmore than $200. Other brandspopular with collectors includeGettelman Beer of Milwaukee;Country Club Beer, St. Joseph,Mo.; E&B Special Beer, Ekhardtand Becker Brewing of Detroit;and most cone tops, such as Gen eral Pulaski of the Pulaski Brew ery of Hammonton, N.J. To determine values, one of the better beer can referencingsites is www.ebeercans.com. Ialso recommend you contact theBrewery Collectibles of America(BCCA), 747 Merus Court, Fen ton, MO 63026; http://bcca.com. Q: I have a copy of Time magazine from 1951, the yearin review issue. Gen. DouglasMacArthur is on its cover, and it is in fairly good con dition. How much doyou think it is worth? —Don, Gulfport, Miss. A: Special "time cap sule" issues are alwaysespecially interesting,and 1951 was an incred ible year: Harry Truman was president; Julius and Ethel Rosenberg were exe cuted for treason; color TV wasintroduced; and "African Queen"was one of the top films of theyear. I checked with several col lectors, who seem to agree thatyour magazine is worth about$15—assuming it is in good con dition. Q: There were several fisher men in my family, and I re cently found a Heddon tacklebox with two trays in a storageshed. Is it worth keeping? —Bill, Stigler, Okla. A: Heddon made several tackle boxes, which now range inprice from $20 or $30 to severalhundred dollars. Since you didnot supply a photo of your box,that is about as much informationas I can provide you.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O.

By Larry Cox By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Scores are coming in and show improvement at mostcounty elementary schools. Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test 2.0 results in read ing and math for third gradersand writing scores for all levelswere released last week by theFlorida Depart-ment of Educa tion. Third-grade FCAT results are released before any others be cause these students need tohave a score of at least 2 to beable to move on to fourth grade. Statewide, both reading and math percentages for the numberof passing students stayed at 57and 58 respectively. However, the percent of fourth graders with a 3.5 passingscore in the writing portion de creased from 57 to 53 percent.Eighth and 10th graders each in creased by two, with 56 and 64percent, respectively, passing. Superintendent David Durastanti sent out a statement whichnoted “Hardee County schoolscontinue to achieve higher thansurrounding counties,” such asDeSoto, Hendry, Glades, High-lands and Okeechobee. READING In reading, three schools scored above the state averageof 57. Three schools also im proved their percentage of pass ing scores. Hilltop Elementary and Bowling Green Elementary eachhad the highest increase in pass ing, five percent over last year.HES had 60 percent pass andBGE had 59. Although Wauchula Ele-men tary had the highest percentageof third graders passing, 67, thiswas a decrease from last year’s71 percent. Zolfo Springs Elementary and North Wauchula Elemen-tary didn’t meet the state’s aver age. However, ZSE increasedfrom 53 to 55 percent. NWE onthe other hand, decreased by fiveand had 51 percent pass. MATH All but one local school scored above the state averageof 58. HES had the biggest percent age of passing students and alsothe highest increase from lastyear, going from 73 to 81 per cent. ZSE had the second-high est passing, 80 percent, afive-point increase. WES increased by four and had 77 percent score a three orhigher on FCAT. BGE had 71 percent pass, al though this is a six-point dropfrom the previous year. NWEhad the lowest number of stu dents pass and was one percentshy of the state average. However, it did increase by two fromlast year’s 55 average. WRITING In writing, most schools showed a significant increasebut only two elementary schoolsscored at or above the state av erage of 53. In order to have apassing score, students wouldhave had to score a 3.5 or higher. BGE had the biggest increase from last year, going up from 32to 52 percent. WES showed thesecond-highest increase, goingfrom 51 to 67. They also had thehighest number of students witha passing score. ZSE went up by 15 and had 53 percent pass, which is equalto the state average. HES dropped by six to 52 percent passing. NWE had a sig nificant drop, going from theprevious year’s 42 to this year’s28 percent. HJH eighth graders did not score above the state average of56, although they did increasefrom last year’s score of 25 tothis year’s 32 percent. Hardee Senior High sopho mores also did not score abovethe state’s average of 64, butthey also increased from lastyear’s percent. The 10th graderswent from 39 to 43.

It is about two miles west ofBowling Green, with a northboundary of County Line Road.The west boundary is DistrictLine Road, just past PayneCreek Road. The south bound ary is CR 664. Over the length of the project, it is anticipated to add 238 stu dents to the Hardee school pop ulation, which is now just over5,000 students. Most may go toBowling Green Elemen-tarySchool, which has a capacity of801 since its recent expansion. Ithad 411 students last week. Theremainder of the students livingin Shadowlawn would attendHardee Junior or Senior High.Naturally, busing of all studentscould add significantly to theSchool District’s transportationissues. The effects of the proposed project will not be considered at next week’s hearing, which isjust a land use change, but willbe negotiated later at the pro posal for a Planned Unit De-vel opment or site developmentplan, explained County Man-ager Lex Albritton. BACKGROUND Shadowlawn was among a dozen housing projects consid ered nearly a decade ago in theboom after three hurricanes dev astated the county and re-build ing began. Vandolah Estates,Torrey Groves, Sten-strom RoadVillage, Saddle-wood Acres,Ridge Estates, Town CreekRanch, Tierre Verde, StonePoint, Hidden Creek,Hollingsworth and Old Orchardwere the names given to projectsfrom the far reaches south, west,east and north in the county. As a result, the county and School Board began a process called concurrency, required bystate law and written into thecounty’s Comprehensive LandUse Plan, to ensure that thecounty and School Board coop erate in seeing that the demandsof new residents for services bythe county and schools. So, studies were done on pro posed costs and impact feeswere enacted to defray the costsof roads, law enforcement andfire protection, utilities, sanita tion and schools that large de velopments bring to an area. Theimpact fees applied to all newconstruction. School Board impact fees were set at 50 percent of the re quested amounts, $2,393.50 forsingle-family homes, $2,488 formobile homes and $1,366.50 foreach unit in a multi-family resi dence. The county fees weresimilarly set at half of the rec ommended amounts, addingabout $5,200 to the cost of anew home. The impact fees were to be come effective in January 2007but, at the request of area con struction Industry representa tives, they were tabled year byyear until they were no longereffective. A new study wouldhave to be done to reassess thetrue costs of demands on serv ices, said Albritton. Now, when a major develop ment which could present hugecosts is on the boards, there areno impact fees in place to im pose. Instead, the developer willbe asked to improve Poole andPayne Creek Roads, which willbe within the proposed projectarea and provide some assuranceof meeting other impacts. It is not clear how schools and school transportation, or fireprotection and law enforcement,needs will be met. The project isslated to have its own on-sitewater/wastewater plant for sani tation needs, but gar-bage col lection and landfill fees haven’tbeen considered yet.

12A The Herald-Advocate, May 29, 2014 DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I read your column on volun teering at pet shelters and for other organizations. All great, but many shelters don't let anyone under 16, and some times 18, volunteer to work with the pets. However, for kids who want to help pets in some way, there are still some great ways to do so! They can organize or join fundraisers at their school or church, and donate the funds to local shelters or pet-welfare organizations. There are many different ways to raise money, and that's what most animal-care groups need: cash! Cheering Volunteer Mom in Virginia DEAR MOM: Great idea! Raising funds can be as easy as participating in a walk for animal welfare (like the Wiggle Waggle Walk in Pasadena, Calif.). Or kids can think of things to make and sell for a fundraising drive, like the two grade-schoolers in Kingston, N.Y., who raised money for the Ulster County SPCA through a church project. "They were given $10 and asked to use it to make more money for a charity. Tyler made labor intensive bracelets and do nated $75, and Caelin made dog biscuits and donated $450," Marie Shultis of the Ulster County SPCA said. The shelter is looking at starting a youth entrepreneurial group to help other kids learn about fundraising, and plans to develop workshops for teen volunteers to teach young people about caring for animals. So, even if a local shelter does n't have a lot of accessible events or volunteer opportunities, kids can come up with great ideas to help them anyway. Parents, educators, church-group leaders and other youth leaders can help foster the spirit of volunteering and provide guidance. Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

A process that began last fall may result with more than 1,000people locally literally losing theAmerican Dream. Property ownership comes with a cost. There’s the mort gage. But, there’s also propertytaxes, the cost of living in a city,county or state and paying forthe services it provides. For over 165 of the 1,400 list ings in the most recent publishednotice of real estate taxes, thereis less than $100 due. The lowestis $37.32. The highest amountdue is over $14,000.

Hardee County Tax Collector Jacki Johnson and her staffspend all year collecting taxes. Itbegins when the tax roll is re ceived from Hardee CountyProperty Appraiser Kathy Craw ford, who sends notices of pro posed taxes to each propertyowner in the late summer. People can appeal the tax amount before a five-memberboard of county commissionersand School Board members.That usually occurs in Septem-ber. When the Tax Collector’s Of fice receives the tax roll, it pre pares tax bills accordingly.Residents begin receiving themthe first week of November.They can get a four percent dis count if taxes are paid in No vember. That becomes threepercent if paid in December, twopercent in January and one per cent in February. All taxes are due by March 31 and begin to incur a three per cent penalty, with frequent no tices sent to property owners. For three weeks in May, the delinquent tax roll and notice oftax certificate sale is printed inthe newspaper and available on line. Many people consider it aninvestment, at least receiving theinterest and reimbursement oftheir investment if the taxes arelater paid. Even as people have the last opportunity to pay their taxes,bids are being received for taxcertificates. The offer with thelowest interest rate is awardedthe bid. If there is more than oneat the same low rate, the com puter randomly awards the bid. Once a bid is accepted, a property owner could still redeemhis property, but now he has topay the tax due, plus five percentinterest plus $6.25 Tax Collec tor’s office processing fee. Tax certificates can be issued each year, to the same or a dif ferent bidder. However, in thethird year, the first person to buya certificate has the option of ap plying for a tax deed and follow ing the procedure to be-come thenew property owner, includingpaying off the subsequent taxdeed holders. The tax bill includes any fire or solid waste disposal assess ments as well as the propertytax. Some properties, vacantland for instance, have no orminimal assessments. Somemay be exempt under the hard ship rules the Hardee CountyCommission approves eachyear. Assessments are handledthrough the county budget officeat Courthouse Annex I, 401 W.Orange St., Wauchula. The finalroll is send to the Property Ap praiser’s office to be included ontax rolls. So, for lack of the original $30 tax bill, the property owner maysoon owe $50 or $60 or more.

SCIENCE TO GO Not All Roads Lead To Heaven The greatest Christian compromise is now progressing at an unprecedented rate of speed. The ideas expounded by thismovement are that all religious roads lead to heaven and nomatter what particular beliefs anyone holds, it is not import ant enough to matter. This is surely — unity at all cost. The goal is the unification of everyone in the world. As the only Way (John 14:6) to heaven is misrepresented, the path is paved for satan, working through that great paganinstitution disguised as the supreme universal Christian c hurch, to compel everyone to submit to his counterfeit day of rever ence and worship of the true God — The Creator of Heaven andEarth (Exodus 20:11). But Jesus says to come out, lest y ou share in her sins and receive her plagues (Revelatio n 18:4). See Revelation 14:9-12 and Revelation 3:5 now. This is the greatfinal gathering of many into the highway of eternal loss (R eve lation 13:3). These statements are not given as an attack on anyone or any groups of people but is a warning against a satanic souldestroying error (1st Thessalonians 5:21).
