Here, the Hardee County sheriff’s Special Weapons And Tactics team is simulating what it would do in the event of a shooter at a local school. An observer from Envirosafe, the compan y in charge of evaluating this simulation, stands by and makes notes on t he team’s response. By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate A bone-chilling 911 call comes in. Shots were heardcoming from a school, and theshooter is still inside. It’s scary to think anything like this can happen in rural Hardee County, but as the say ing goes, “hope for the best, pre pare for the worst.” That’s why Hardee County Emergency Management hostedan “Active Shooter Re-sponse”training exercise at WauchulaElementary School on Friday. The exercise put local school,law enforcement and emergencypersonnel to the test. This realistic event was de signed to focus on the type of re sponse the above agencieswould have and should have ifthere were ever a shooter at one of Hardee County’s schools. Aconsulting firm stood by to eval uate all actions. The simulation started around 9:30 a.m. with one “shooter” en tering through one of the doorsof the school and firing off a fewrounds. Principal Sonja Bennett was then heard over the intercomsystem, calling for the school tobe put on lockdown. When thatalert is put out, all doors arelocked and everyone inside theclassrooms knows to get as faraway from the doors and win dows as possible. During the training exercise, all law enforcement personnelon the campus — primarily theWauchula Police Departmentand Hardee County sheriff’sSpecial Weapons And Tacticsteam — wore blue bands aroundtheir wrists or arms. They alsowrapped some blue tape aroundtheir fake guns, so everyoneplaying roles in the scenario re membered the guns could not re ally hurt them. Throughout the mock scene, See TRAINING 2A By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Hardee County Sheriff Arnold Lanier has presented a pro posed budget of $8.43 million tothe County Commission for the2014-15 fiscal year, which be gins Oct. 1. The proposal is nearly a nine percent increase from the cur rent budget of $7.76 million. “I consider these proposed ex penditures reasonable and nec essary for the proper andefficient operation of the Har-dee County Sheriff’s Office,”Lanier wrote in a letter submit ted along with the proposedbudget. Lanier stated the budget in cluded five additional positions,a three-percent wage increasefor all employees, and that he isanticipating an in-crease inhealth insurance premiums. The budget is broken down into three categories: law en-forcement, civil and corrections. Law enforcement takes the majority of the budget and isproposed at $5.42 million for thecoming year. Currently there are73 employees in the department,with an additional two being re quested. A third employee is needed in the finance department to trainunder budget director DonnaMcCleskey, who will retire inFebruary after serving in the rolefor 20 years. Salaries total $3.12 million, and insurance, retirement, Work ers Compensation insurance andtaxes are an additional $1.4 mil lion. Operating expenses for law enforcement are anticipated at$887,546 and include $210,000for fuel, $200,000 in capital ex penses, $100,000 for vehiclemaintenance, and an array ofsmaller items including officesupplies, ammunition, commu nications, liability insurance,uniforms and maintenance con tracts. The civil division budget is proposed at $486,467 and in cludes providing security andbailiffs at the courthouse. Currently there are seven em ployees. Two more will beadded once the security screen ers at the courthouse becomeemployees of the Sheriff’s Of fice when the new fiscal year be gins.

The Florida Department of Education has released the End-of-Course exam results for alge bra, geometry, biology, U.S.history and civics. These rela tively new tests were created asa way to help increase studentachievement as well as improvecollege and career readiness. These tests are computerbased and are scored using“achievement levels.” Studentscan earn scores between one andfive; level three is considered asthe passing score. Algebra 1 Out of all the EOCs, Algebra 1 is the only one students mustpass to be able to graduate fromhigh school. The others countfor 30 percent of their grades inthat subject. Students from seventh to 11th grade took the Algebra 1 EOC.Only scores for eighth and ninthgrades are shown, however, asscores are only displayed forthose grades where 10 or morestudents took the exam. Six students took the exam in 10th grade and in 11th grade,seven students were tested. In seventh grade, there were 29 students who took the exambut no score is listed for them.This means that all 29 were inthe same achievement level, andit is not revealed in order to pro tect the privacy of individualstudents. In eighth grade, students con tinue receiving great scores. Lastyear, 100 percent passed theexam. This year out of the 89students taking the exam, 98percent of them scored a levelthree or higher. They also sur passed the state level of 89 per cent. Superintendent David Durastanti says this is a noteworthyaccomplishment and mentionedthey are tied for third best in theentire state. There were 289 ninth graders taking the Algebra 1 EOC. Outof these freshmen, 28 percentpassed, which is lower than lastyear’s 34 percent. They did notreach the state level of 52 per cent. Geometry Students from ninth through 12th grade were tested in geom etry. One of the grade levels beatthe state standard. EOC scores for ninth graders show that out of the 80 whotested, 86 percent passed. This isa decrease from last year’s 97percent. They also fell just shortof the state’s level of 87 percent. The largest number of stu dents taking the Geometry EOCwas sophomores. Out of the 240who took the exam, 35 percentpassed. This is a decrease fromthe 63 percent who scored athree or higher last year, and didnot meet the state standard of 54percent. Students in 11th grade also had decreases.

The event was originally planned for August. –––––– Wauchula veterinarian Dr. Slade Hayman, who has been in practice 33 years, says Tylenol (acetaminophen) is OK for dogs butdeadly for cats. In cats it prevents the red blood cells from carryingoxygen. He avoids using Tylenol, which is used for pain relief and fever reduction but can cause liver problems in animals and humans. Hay man said cows can get nitrate poisoning from eating fertilizer bags.Taking non-steroid pain relievers over a period of time can causegastric ulcers. Dr. Hayman, 61, is feeling much better these days, after fourbypass heart surgery and intestinal surgery, both in 2011, and hipreplacement surgery in 2012. He still has diabetes, like many otherAmericans. –––––– Coyotes are becoming more common in Florida. One of their favorite meals is a cat. –––––– Some people get lung cancer who have never smoked, such as Breyan Harris, 33, a nurse from Sacramento, Calif., reports Mari lynn Marchione of The Associated Press. –––––– Lloyd Dunkelberger of the Lakeland Ledger reports the new $77 billion state budget has $18.8 billion for educ ation grades K12, including $6,937 per pupil funding, which reached $7,126 underGov. Charlie Crist. In 2011 Scott signed a bill which eliminatestenure for newly hired teachers, who now work year to year likemost other Americans. –––––– Nicole Maxfield Woods, a waitress at Bob Evans Restaurant in north Lakeland, received a $500 tip on Father’s Day reported Maria Tannucci of the Ledger. –––––– Hall of Fame Major League Baseball player Tony Gwynn, 54, died June 16 in Poway, Calif., of cancer of the mouth and salivaryglands. He won eight National League batting championships, had3,141 hits and a lifetime batting average of .338 in 20 years, all withthe San Diego Padres. He blamed his cancer on his long-time useof mouth tobacco. USA Today on June 20 reported the number of major leaguers who use spit tobacco has declined from about 50 percent to 33 per cent in the last 20 years, wrote Jorge L. Ortiz. The National CancerInstitute says smokeless tobacco contains at least 28 chemicals thathave been found to cause cancer, typically of the mouth, esophagusand pancreas, and might also lead to heart disease, gum disease andoral lesions. –––––– Florida has an estimated 180 panthers, the state animal, reports USA Today. A panther is occasionally spotted in Hardee County, butthey mainly live in south Florida. –––––– The average car in the U.S. is 11.4 years old, and the average single-engine airplane registered with the FAA is 41 years old, re ports USA Today. –––––– Mosaic reports the average human body contains about two pounds of phosphorus, most of it in our bones and teeth. It is thesecond most abundant mineral in the body, next to calcium. Phosphorus is a component of all plant and animal cell tissues and is necessary for the structure, growth and propagation of livingorganisms. Phosphorus and sugar is in every DNA molecule. Phosphorus enters the food chain from soil into the roots of plants, and then humans absorb phosphate from the foods they eat,says Mosaic. the coming year.Personal services include $1.3 million in salaries and $620,965in insurance, retirement andtaxes.

As they entered thebuildings to search, they wouldfind teachers and students tryingto remain undetected by theshooters. The survivors would then be escorted outside, where HardeeCounty Fire-Rescue was waitingto care for them. The event was made to feel as real as possible, which accord ing to Wauchula Police ChiefJohn Eason was good practicefor both officers and schoolstaff. In fact, he and his team un derwent a similar training exer cise just prior to this one to bebetter prepared. He also con ferred with Bennett about theexercise, and she noted it wasgood training for the teacherswho had roles in the simulation,as they had a chance to see offi cer response tactics, and wouldnow have an idea of what to ex pect in this type of situation. These are not the only meas ures Eason has taken to preparefor such a possibility here. Re cently he sent four officers forschool-shooting training simula tions in other states. He and an other officer also have becomeactive-shooter instructors whiletraining in Daytona. Eason went on to say this type of training exercise revealswhat can be improved to quicklystop an active shooter as well asto get help to the wounded asfast as possible. The entire mock shooting was observed by evaluators from En virosafe, a South Carolina con sulting firm, which will rate theresponses. Its report has not yetbeen received. During the exercise, teachers from WES played themselveswhile members of the Junior Re serve Officer Training Corps atHardee Senior High School por trayed students. Indeed, the District 1 faceoff will end, as either Samuels orSmith emerges victorious. But in District 4, if no candi date wins 50 percent of the totalvote plus one — a majority —the top two vote getters will pro ceed to the General Election onTuesday, Nov. 4. If, however, one of the three candidates scores a clear major ity, that person wins in the pri mary. For partisan races, the Primary Election decides whichcontender will be a party’s can didate in the General Election. Birge, a Republican, faces two others within her party whowant to be the countywide Re-publican candidate for CountyCommission District 2. Grahamand Wilson seek that spot. Whoever is the Republican winner in the primary will go onto face Democrat Plummer inthe General Election. For District 4, incumbent Johnson and challenger Me-lendy seek the Republican nom ination. The victor will faceDemocrat Ellison come No-vember. Early Voting for the Primary Election begins on Monday,Aug. 11. Meanwhile, the race is on! Minutes after the “shooter” stepped into the school building, members o f the Wauchula Police Department arrived with weapons drawn. Law enforcement officers wo re a blue band around their wrists and had blue tape on their guns, so everyone wo uld know that these were fake guns and not dangerous. PHOTOS BY MARIA TRUJILLO Just before the event was to begin, school administrators and Schoo l Board members in attendance were briefed on what would be taking place inside the s chool. Toward the end of the ordeal, the school’s principal, Sonja Bennett, and assistant prin cipal, Jessica Gray, were safely led out by SWAT and a member of the WPD. As members of law enforcement entered the building, they would secure sepa rate areas and then safely escort some of the teachers and students out. Local ambulances and fire trucks were also on hand to help calm nerves and transport the wounded to the hospital.

Ceremony Elevates Barton To Major By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate An inmate at the Hardee County Jail wants televisionsand more recreation-yard space,and wants the Florida SupremeCourt to order it. Kevin D. Ray prepared the “extraordinary writ of habeascorpus” himself, and filed it viathe Hardee Circuit Court onJune 2. The Supreme Court,however, transferred the matterback to Hardee County thisMonday. Ray, as petitioner, lists as re spondents the Hardee CountySheriff’s Office, Sheriff ArnoldLanier and detention Capt. An drew Rigney, Lt. Hershal Stoneand administrative staff. The inmate alleges televisions were removed from the facilityand a portion of the recreationyard closed because of “breachof security issues.” Instead,those issues should have beenrepaired, he contends. Ray accuses the Sheriff’s Of fice of “failure to properly se cure” the picnic tables, the perimeter of the recreation yard,the televisions and the TV cablecompany account information,and then “discriminatingagainst” the inmate populationby removing the TVs and reduc ing the size of the recreationyard “by three thirds.” Televisions were not secured to prevent damage, cable ac-count information was not se cured to prevent theft, and picnictables were not secured to pre vent them being used to gain ac cess to the yard’s perim-eter,Ray asserts. He asks the court to order the repair of these “securitybreaches” and to order the “re turn of the taken items,” thosebeing the televisions and the“normal” size of the recreationyard. His court filing has yet to be received by the Hardee CountySheriff’s Office and its legal rep resentation. Sheriff Lanier did note, how ever, that televisions were takenout of the facility followingabuse of the privilege by in mates and that the recreationyard is used for 1-3 hours aweek, depending on the weatheror on any needed repairs. Ray, 45, of 705 E. Banana St., Bowling Green, has been incar cerated within the HardeeCounty Jail on numerous occa sions. He currently is being held on charges of assaulting an officeror firefighter, battery, and tam pering with or destroying evi dence.

8B The Herald-Advocate, June 26, 2014 If you are among the 750,000plus Florida bass anglers, now isthe time to provide your opinionabout a proposed change tolargemouth bass conservation byfilling out a new online survey. The change being considered is a five-bass daily bag limit,only one of which may be 16inches in total length or longer.This means that each personwould be allowed to keep up tofive largemouth bass less than16 inches, or four largemouthbass less than 16 inches and onelargemouth bass 16 inches orlonger each day. This change would replace current length limits, but wouldnot alter the current statewidebag limit of five bass. To take the survey and to learn more about largemouth bass,and current and possible futuremanagement changes, go toMyFWC.com/Fishing and selectthe “Speak out on bass rules!”link under the bass image nearthe middle of the page. Based on public input and future edits to the proposal, theearliest this rule change is ex pected to be implemented is July2016. “The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission takespublic opinions very seriously,”said Tom Champeau, director ofthe Division of Freshwater Fish eries Manage-ment. “Combinedwith the best science and casestudies that we have to go on,public input helps us strive foroptimal sustained use of thesepopular and valuable fish.” In 2011 the Black Bass Management Plan was approved,based on comments from morethan 7,500 anglers and a seriesof Technical Advisory Groupmeetings involving Floridaguides, tournament anglers, ma rina owners, trophy bass fisher men, outdoor writers andtourism representatives. The plan encouraged FWC bi ologists to develop the least re strictive regulations feasible toenhance trophy bass fisheries,maintain healthy bass popula tions statewide, and provide di verse angling opportunities.Public input encouraged control ling the number of big bass taken from the wild and enhanc ing angler satisfaction. Based on a review of biological and sociological data that in cluded almost 6,000 publicresponses to a preliminary sur vey and open-house eventsaround the state, the FWC isseeking additional feedback onthe proposed change to create abasic statewide regulation forlargemouth bass. Currently, south and east of the Suwannee River there is a14-inch minimum, and in theSuwannee River and north andwest there is a 12-inch minimumsize limit for bass. Data show that protecting these smaller fish is not neces sary biologically and that thesize limit complicates regula tions. What is advantageous isprotecting bigger fish, which arerarer and take longer to produce— hence the proposed catchlimit of only one bass that is 16inches or longer. This regulation would also be more lenient in the fishing zonein the south (east of Highway441 and south of State Road 80), which currently allows only onebass over 14 inches. Limited exceptions for spe cific fisheries that have specialneeds or opportunities wouldstill be possible, such as high-profile, catch-and-release fish eries that need such amanagement approach, or evena few more liberal regulationswhere bass may be overabun dant. Those would be limited ex ceptions and generallyassociated with fish manage ment areas. In addition, it is important to note that there is no intent toalter the simple Bass Tourna ment Exemption Permit process. Besides filling out the survey, those interested in ensuringquality bass fishing can do twoother things: sign up for the Tro phyCatch program that rewardsanglers for catching, document ing and releasing bass heavierthan eight pounds (see Trophy CatchFlorida.com ); and pur chase a “Go Fishing”largemouth bass tag for your ve hicle or trailer (see http://bit.ly/-FLbass-tag). Fishermen: Take Bass Survey! Gag grouper will open for recreational harvest in most Gulfof Mexico state waters and allGulf federal waters on Tuesday. The state Fish & Wildlife Commission manages marinefish from the shore to nine nau tical miles in the Gulf of Mex ico. The gag grouper recreational harvest season in Gulf of Mex ico state waters, not includingFranklin, Jefferson, Wakulla andTaylor counties, will re-mainopen through Dec. 3, closing onDec. 4. State waters off Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylorcounties are open from April 1through June 30, and July 1marks their closure. The four-county region includes all wa ters of Apalachicola Bay andIndian Pass, including those inGulf County, and all waters ofthe Steinhatchee River, includ ing those in Dixie County. Regional seasons such as these provide additional fishingopportunities and access whilecontinuing to rebuild the gaggrouper population to sustain able levels. Monroe County is also excluded from this season becauseit follows the Atlantic season forgag grouper. In state and federal Gulf wa ters, the gag grouper recreationalharvest minimum size limit is 22inches total length and the dailybag limit is two gag grouper perperson within the four-fishgrouper aggregate limit. Gag grouper also opens in Gulf federal waters July 1; theseason closing date is yet to bedetermined. Gag caught in federal waters during the federal season may betaken ashore in Franklin,Wakulla, Jefferson and Taylorcounties, but boats with gaggrouper aboard may not stop andmust have gear stowed whiletraveling through state waters inthat region.

Grouper Harvest Opens Next Week The violence in Iraq caused plenty of pain at the pump forU.S. motorists last week. Throughout the last seven days, the average price for a gal lon of regular unleaded rose fivecents in Florida and Tennessee,and six cents in Georgia. "Motorists will be relieved to see that the average price forgasoline came to a screechinghalt over the weekend," saidMark Jenkins, spokesman,AAA/The Auto Club Group."Unfortunately, the unrest inIraq is likely to continue influ encing prices in the near future." Although the United States gets very little petroleum fromIraq, concerns of a supply dis ruption 10 days ago boosted oilprices, causing a domino effecton the price of gasoline. "Theprice of oil influences abouttwo-thirds the price of gasoline,"Jenkins continued. "When the price of oil surges, retailers haveto pay more for gasoline and thathigher cost is then passed alongto motorists." West Texas Intermediate set tled on Friday at $107.26 a bar rel on the NYMEX. Althoughthis is the highest settlementsince Sept. 18, it’s only a 35-cent markup from last week,compared to a $4.25 increase theweek before. “Gas prices would typically be falling right now, but the con flict in Iraq is the main thingdriving them higher,” Jenkinscontinued. “Until a resolution is reached, prices could remain elevatedthroughout summer. However,there’s no reason to panic, asprices are still 10-15 centscheaper than what we paid inFebruary.” Iraqi Conflict Hits Gas Pumps GRILLED CHICKEN FOR A CROWD When you have a crowd to feed at a backyard bash, try thishoney-and-ginger party pleaser.1 1/4 cups soy sauce3/4 cup honey1/4 cup fresh lemon juice2 tablespoons vegetable oil2 tablespoons minced, peeledfresh ginger2 garlic cloves, crushed withgarlic press3 chickens (3 pounds each),each cut into quarters 1.

Sports Quiz By Chris Richcreek WHY JOIN AARP? At some point in our lives, we will get an invitation to joinAARP, the organization for sen iors.

June 26, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A TEST SCORESContinued From 1A on State Road 64 near CharlieCreek that was opened in 2009. The project would create six additional jobs and allow own-er/veterinarian Liz Steele tooffer a wide array of equineservices, including reproduction,a surgical center, rehab facilitiesand an office building. She said her customers come from all over the Central Flor-ida area, and many are high-endrodeo horses. The IDA/EDC filed six appli cations totaling just more than$4 million. A $150,000 application was submitted for administrativefunding to run the economic de velopment office, and wouldlessen the amount needed fromthe County Commission to op erate the agency. A second application was for an additional $500,000 for theFlorikan building going into theCommerce Park. The 80,000-square-foot building is expected to cost ap proximately $8 million to com plete, and the company hasalready been awarded $2 millionfrom the EDA and $1.5 millionfrom the IDA to go toward theproject. The owners of the company will contribute the balance toconstruct the facility that willcoat fertilizer to make it releaseits nutrients slower. A $500,000 application was submitted by the IDA to con tinue working on the utility cor ridor project, with the end goalof having water and sewer avail able along U.S. 17 from Bowl ing Green all the way to ZolfoSprings. A pretreatment facility for the Commerce Park is needed to en sure the county’s Wau-chulaHills utility facility is not af fected by any discharges comingfrom park tenants, as has hap pened in the past. Constructing the facility and purchasing the equipment is ex pected to total $296,111. The incubator project going into the old Scotty’s building inWauchula is nearly remodeled,and the IDA is requesting an ad ditional $1.5 million for the fa cility and its tenants. To date the EDA has awarded $1.6 million to purchase thebuilding, renovate it and givesome capital to tenants CantuApiaries and Peace River PaddleSports. The additional request would have $472,688 for continuedrenovation and equipment pur chases and an additional$200,000 for Peace River Pad dle Sports and $238,525 forCantu Apiaries. A third company, which at this time remains confidential,also wants to move into thebuilding and is requesting$662,000. The last grant submitted by the IDA is for $1 million to con struct a 20,000-square-foot spec ulation building in theCommerce Park, to be availablefor any potential business look ing to locate in Hardee County. Applicants on Tuesday night were told to also make their pre sentations to each of the threemunicipalities and the CountyCommission, to answer anyquestions those various boardsmay have. All four boards will then rank the projects and submit their re sults to the EDA board for itsfinal consideration. The EDA meeting to decide which applicant will receivefunding should be in late Augustor early September. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Economic Development Authority heard 10 presentationsTuesday night for projects total ing $8.9 million by applicantsseeking the estimated $5.2 mil lion in grant funds available tobe awarded later this year. Applicants were the Chamber of Commerce, Ridge LargeAnimal Vet Services, Bio-Nitro gen, the town of Zolfo Springsand the Industrial De-velopmentAuthority/Economic Develop ment Council. The Chamber of Commerce is seeking $149,260 for admin istrative expenses. Chamber board member Bo Conerly presented the applica tion and said in the past most ofthe budget came from memberdues and fundraising efforts. Hesaid the funding would allow theorganization to focus on helpinglocal businesses and not spendtime fundraising. BioNitrogen is seeking $2 million to go toward construct ing an up-to-$300 million ureaplant in Hardee County thatwould employ 52 people. Previously BioNitrogen was awarded a $1 million grant fromthe IDA and a $1 million grantfrom the EDA. This new appli cation would be in addition tothe previously awarded funds. Zolfo Springs is trying to im prove its utility services alongU.S. 17 once the road work be gins in the town. The infrastruc ture grant totals $460,955 andwould go to improve both thewater and sewer services alongthe highway corridor. Ridge Large Animal Vet Services is seeking funding ofmore than $2.3 million to buildadditional equestrian facilities atits Three Oaks Equine property EDA To Decide Which Of 10 Gets $5.2 Million The Florida Association of Counties presented HardeeCounty commissioners SueBirge and Grady Johnson withthe Advanced County commis-sioner designation followingcompletion of a comprehensivestudy program developed by theassociation. They received thedesignation along with 11 othercounty commissioners during anawards ceremony held at theFAC Annual Conference in Or ange County. Launched by FAC in 2006, the Advanced County Com-mis sioner education program, “TheFlorida Forum for County Lead ers,” is an advanced leadershipprogram designed for graduatesof the Certified County Com missioners program. This year,the program has been held inAlachua County and saw 13commissioners graduate in Junewith a total of 145 graduating since the inception of the pro gram in 2006. “This certification allows our citizens electorate to become ex perts in county government, im proving their communities,”said FAC Executive DirectorChris Holley. “Through FAC’seducation programs we are ableto teach commissioner how toadvance their policies throughthe complexities of governmentbureaucracies.” The ACC program is organ ized as a series of three semi nars, with 27 hours of coursework. The course content foc-uses on leading within Florida’scounties. Participating commis sioner must commit to fully par ticipate in all three seminars inorder to graduate. Seminar in clude: Tough Policy Choices inFlorida During TumultuousTimes; Leading Your Com-mu nities During Turbulent Times; and, Understanding and Work ing with Stakeholders andCounty Decision Makers duringthese Turbulent Times. The University of Florida/IFAS Extension has sponsoredthis program for the last sixyears in Alachua County. Following are the names of the county commissioners whoreceived their ACC designationin 2014: Sue Birge, HardeeCounty; Christopher Cons-tance, Charlotte County; Step-hen R. Deutsch, CharlotteCounty; Don Elwell, HighlandsCounty; Clyde Fleming, Suw-annee County; Grady Johnson,Hardee County; Stephen Kel-ley, Nassau County; John Ken ney, Citrus County; NathanMcLaughlin, Flagler County;Jim Melvin, Santa Rose County;Malcolm Page, Taylor County;Sean Parks, Lake County; JackRichie, Highlands County. Commissioners Earn Advanced Designation reach the state’s 30 percent. Seniors had 35 percent of the 31 students tested pass theGeometry EOC, beating thestate standard of 28. Scores fromlast year were not availablesince less than 10 students tookthe exam. Biology 1 High schoolers from ninth through 12th grade took theexam. However, only scores for10th grade were released as allother grades had fewer than 10students taking the test. Eight ninth graders, seven juniors and only two 12thgraders were tested. There were 313 sophomores tested. Fifty-six percent of thestudents passed the EOC, tyingwith the state standard. The re sults also remained within therange of last year, when 58 per cent scored three or above. U.S. History This is only the second year a U.S. History exam has beengiven to students. During thefirst year, scoring is differentand therefore comparisons tolast year cannot be made. Students in ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th took the U.S. HistoryEOC, but only scores for 11thare available. In both ninth and 10th grade only one student took the test,while three were tested in 12thgrade. Exactly half of the 270 stu dents who took the exam as jun iors passed. They did not meetthe state standard of 66 percent. Civics This was the first year that students in Hardee County tooka Civics EOC, which means thescoring process for this exam isdifferent. Instead of scoring students between level one to level five,they receive “T-scores” be-tween 20 and 80. The approxi mate average is 50. Anotherdifference is that students arecategorized into lowest third,middle third and highest third. In Hardee County, only sev enth graders took the exam.There were 438 tested. Of thesestudents, 54 placed in the lowerthird, 31 placed in the middleand 15 placed in the highestthird.

10A The Herald-Advocate, June 26, 2014 The Florida Farm Bureau, Floridas largest statewide agricultural association, has an nounced its Legislators of the Year and Champions for Agri culture. Legislators Of Year The Legislator of the Year award is presented to lawmakers who demonstrate excellent lead ership on agricultural issues and work proactively to ad-vance the interests of Floridas farmers and ranchers. These leaders have demonstrated a sustained com mitment to developing Floridas economy and protecting the states natural resources. Throughout the 2014 legisla tive session, Sen. Bill Montford played a leading role in support ing and promoting Florida agriculture as the chairman of the Senate Agriculture Com-mittee. During the last two legislative sessions, Montford presided over a committee that heard and passed significant legislation important to Flor-idas farm families. In 2014, he sponsored two of Florida Farm Bureaus legisla tive priorities: a bill that helped expand opportunities for agri cultural education in schools and legislation that helped strengthen and improve Floridas Greenbelt law by allowing farm land used for water storage to remain classified as agricultural property. We are very grateful for Sen. Montfords leadership and dedication to strengthen agriculture in the 2014 session, said Florida Farm Bureau President John Hoblick. Sen. Montfords experience and passion for both education and agriculture helped us pass sound policy that benefits students and the environment. Rep. Jake Raburn has been an equally effective advocate for Floridas farm families. During the 2014 session Raburn spon sored legislation that expanded the number of agricultural in dustry certifications included in the CAPE funding list. He was also the primary cosponsor of HB 575, a bill that would have saved farmers $2.4 million in sales-tax exemptions on irrigation equipment and re pairs. Although HB 575 did not pass, language updating and protecting the Greenbelt assess ment on agricultural land was amended onto HB 7091 and passed the Legislature, giving farmers additional protections on their agricultural land. Rep. Raburn is a superb advocate for agriculture, said Hoblick. His work ethic and effort as a bill sponsor are un matched, and we are grateful for all he has done to promote issues important to agriculture. We are excited about Rep. Raburns future in the Legislature and look forward to contin uing our work with him during his time in the Florida House, Hoblick added. Champions For Agriculture In addition to naming its Legislators of the Year, Florida Farm Bureau has named its second an nual list of Champions for Agriculture, recognizing a group of legislators for their role in pro moting an agriculture-friendly legislative agenda. For 2014, Farm Bureau recog nizes six senators and 18 representatives who took an active role in supporting this states farmers and ranchers by spon soring and co-sponsoring prior ity legislation and by having a perfect voting record on the or ganizations priority issues. Florida Farm Bureau is thankful to have a group of law makers in Tallahassee that continue to demonstrate strong leadership and advocacy on behalf of Florida agriculture, stated Hoblick. We are grateful for their efforts that allow agriculture to continue to benefit our states economy and its environ ment. The Champions for Agriculture from the Florida Senate are senators Jeff Brandes, Charlie Dean, Bill Galvano, Denise Grimsley, Bill Montford and Wilton Simpson. The Champions for Agriculture from the Florida House of Representatives are representa tives Ben Albritton, Halsey Beshears, Jim Boyd, Matt Caldwell, Marti Coley, Steve Crisa fulli, Katie Edwards, Debbie Mayfield, Jimmy Patronis, Cary Pigman, Ray Pilon, Elizabeth Porter, Jake Raburn, Kevin Rader, Holly Raschein, Pat Rooney, Jimmie T. Smith and Charlie Van Zant. Farm Bureau Names Top Legislators Dear Editor: We who were honored and privileged to go to Washington, D.C. on the Honor Flight wish to thank the Hardee Rotary Club for sponsoring and financing a trip and experience of a lifetime. We, along with a large group from Highlands County, flew with our guardians to D.C. Our itinerary included visits to the Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Wall, World War II Monument, the Korean War Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial and a visit to Ar lington Cemetery where we had front row seats for the changing of the Guard. All of this is an emotional and sobering experience. So many white crosses in Arlington. We owe thanks to numerous people who created this great trip. First to Sue Birge whose tireless efforts planned and co ordinated this trip. She made sure everything and everyone was on time, and we lacked for nothing. No mother hen ever took better care of her chicks than Sue did of us. Each Vet had to have a guardian to look after their safety and any needs. Some guardians were Rotary volunteers and some were sons and daughters. Wauchula Police Chief John Eason, was a volunteer who took it upon himself to be first off the bus to stand at the door and ensure everyones safety off and on. Everywhere we went there were crowds of people who thanked us for our service and made us feel special. In all, there were 105 from Highlands and Hardee who were privileged to make the trip. A special thanks to those who provided us with much needed wheelchairs: Florida Hospital Wauchula, Wauchula First Methodist Church and when we thought we were going to come up short, Dan Graham and Sandra Kersey of Desoto Home Health whose only question was how many and when. Our sincere thanks to all who made this a special trip for all us old vets. Bill Hodge and Hardee County Vets Of World War II and Korean Conflict Letter To The Editor Hardee Rotary Thanked For Honor Flight To D.C.STATE OF FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMITThe Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a per mit to Hardee Power Partners, Ltd, Alex C George, 6695 N County Road 663, Bowling Green, Florida 33834 to operate wastewater treatment and effluent disposal facilities for Units 1 and 2 of the Hardee Power Station located in Hardee County, Florida. Low volume waste and domestic wastewater generated during the operation of the Hardee Units 1 and 2 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 Hardee Power Partners power plant is co-located at the Hardee Power Station site along with the Richard J. Midulla Generating Station, owned and operated by Seminole Electric Cooperative, Inc. Both facilities discharge treated wastewater to the on-site cooling reservoir. The discharge from the cooling reservoir (Outfall D-001) is jointly owned and operated by both facilities. The Richard J. Midulla Generating Station is permitted under Permit Number FL0044229. The permit authorizes 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 thermal variance under Section 316(a), Clean Water Act. 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 holi days, at the Department's Industrial Wastewater Office, 2600 Blair Stone Road, M.S. 3545, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400, at phone number (850)245-8589. 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 decision 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 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request an ex tension 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 initi ated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based must contain 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. Mediation under Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, is not available for this proceeding. 6:26cSTATE OF FLORIDADEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMITThe Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue a permit to Seminole Electric Cooperative, Mike Roddy, 16313 N Dale Mabry Hwy 33618, P.O.

Way Back When Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of BettyWaters, who made her final jour ney early last Thursday morn ing. Her granddaughter andgranddaughter’s mother werewith her, and she lifted herhands toward heaven and said,“My God, my God.” That hasgot to be a blessing to the family. The only other person I know of who saw and exclaimed thename out loud was a sister ofMiss Nellie Locke. Miss Nelliealways told me her sister, whocould not talk and was unable toget out of the bed, sat straight upand held her arms up and ex claimed “Jesus!” It was great to see Rhonda Waters and her mother, Sharon,and husband at the funeral. Iknow Rhonda is married and hasanother name but I don’t re member it! Will and Angie Wa ters have a beautiful little girl.Angie, Will’s wife, was one ofmy granddaughter Kay-lee’s fa vorite teachers It is a shame but funerals are where you see people youhaven’t seen in a month of Sun-days. One of Betty’s caregiverswas Brianna, Natalie Whidden’sgranddaughter Gulf State Quartet sang at Southside Baptist last Sunday.Bert Milligan always attendedthe gospel sings but is now con fined to a wheelchair. His care giver told Greg Rawls whenthey were setting up for the con cert that Bert wanted to comebut was just unable. After theconcert and dinner, the quartetbus drove around to Bert’s homeand they sang to him. They were blessed with Bert telling them about receiving amedal from France for his par ticipation in the Battle of theBulge in WWII. That was whereBert was injured. There are notto many WW II survivors left.My brother-in-law, Todd Silver man, is one and is in good shape.He celebrated his birthday thisWednesday (June 25), and Iwish him a great birthday. Fort Green Baptist had youth Sunday on the 22nd. Mike Davispreached the sermon and did agood job. Kasie Powell led thesinging and was excellent inplaying a solo on the saxophone.Brianna Waters sang a solo,“Hold Me,” and did a terrificjob. The youth led in prayer andtook up the offering. It was agood day. The Cooper reunion was at Bowling Green Baptist and I amsure was very good. We wereunable to attend. It will be timefor Sherman and his sister,Gwen, to host the reunion nextyear, and it will be the first Sat-urday in June, or June 6, 2015. Holly Brown and Brianna Waters spent a few days in Or lando at cheer camp. They al ways have a great time. Kaylee Hogenauer spent a week at Marco with Alyssa Bar ber and her family. They all hada good time, and said there werelots of people from HardeeCounty. Fort Green is having Bible school this week. The familynight is this Friday at 7. Verna Whitfield Crews will reach the century mark on July4. Not too many live to be 100years young and are as active asMrs. Verna. They are having anopen house celebration this Sun day from 3 to 5 p.m. at her homeon County Road 664. She doesnot want any gifts, just the pres ence of her friends! Gary Oden has completed his daily trips to Moffit. They weresomething to wear you out! Heand Ginny are excited abouttheir grandson’s wedding up inthe Panhandle. Taylor graduatedfrom Bible College and re mained there to work. Besides praying for Gary, please continue to pray forByron Allison. His wife’smother, Mrs. Parks, has learnedshe has cancer. This is about toomuch for Rita, so pray for hermother and her. Pat Albritton is doing well after surgery, and the doctorssaid it did not look like any can cer but of course they have tocheck it out. Charlton Sadlercame through his surgery and isdoing good, just uncomfortablewith staples in his neck. The oldsaying is definitely true, if we allhung our problems on theclothesline and after we sawwhat others were going through,we would take back ours! Please pray for each other and our nation. WANTED: CANCER SURVIVORS, RELAY TEAMS The 2015 Hardee County Relay For Life committee is looking for teams and survivors! Who can be on a team? Anyone! How do you form a team? Easy! A team can be your family and friends, your civic group, youth group or a business, etc. If you own a business and want to form ateam but don’t really have the time to, go to the meetings or helpwith the fundraising; find a student that is willing to help put her incharge. Churches, form a team with your youth group a Sunday School class, the choir or deacons, etc. Forming a team doesn’t takemuch, just some time. Remember, if you are a student applying for scholarships, you need volunteer hours. What better way to get your hours? Almost everyone has been touched by cancer in some way. Maybe a friend, family member, a friend of a friend. Or maybe youare like me, and cancer has affected you personally. If you are a cancer survivor or if you know someone who is, please let Beth Henry know by calling her at (863) 245-1612. Bethand her team are always looking forward to finding new and old sur vivors. She and her team prepare the Survivor Tent, food, and send out letters to the survivors and their caregivers. They get things togetherso they can have a drawing for the survivors and caregivers. Everyyear there is something different. Someone told me that they didn’t think they were a survivor because they didn’t have chemo. Wrong! If you have been diag nosed with any type of cancer and had any type of treatment andyou are living, you are a survivor. Please feel free to contact me with any questions at chulamom88@gmail.com or (863) 832-1197.

June 26, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 First things first: I owe the second mission team that wentto Nicaragua from New HopeBaptist Church a correction formy error. Last week, I had themreturning on Monday, June 16,when in actuality they did notreturn until the next day, the17th. I am glad they had a suc cessful mission. This team shared their experi ences during the morning andevening worship times on Sun day. Members of this team wereTalmadge, Cyndi and GarrettAlbritton, as well as ChelaCalves and Tim Murphy. Eachone expressed that their trip was“amazing,” and should the op portunity arise each would re turn to Nicaragua again. The third and final mission team for this summer left thisMonday, and will return onMonday, July 1. This group willonce again aid the Marsh’s mis sion work in the area of Gre-nada, Nicaragua. Mitch andJudy Marsh have worked in thisarea for several years and are al ways open to welcoming visit ing teams that aid in the workthere. The three mission teams from New Hope Baptist have been to tally backed by the church con gregation through monetarygifts, homemade quilts and dollsas well as arts-and-crafts kits,hygiene necessities and otheritems that the Marshes use inreaching the people of the areasin and surrounding Grenada. Saturday was the celebration of Samantha Elena’s first yearwith us. She is the youngest ofmy great-granddaughters andthe 24th great-grandchild amongmy five children, and my 25grandchildren, and like all therest has truly been a blessing tome. Another blessing came my way on Saturday when mygrandson, Christopher Wilkins,and his fiance, ZykeriaDawkins, came over from Se bring for a visit with me and then spent some time with hisdad, my son Joseph I, at FortGreen. They also brought their“baby,” Cinnamon, a crossbredminiature Jack Russell, who im mediately became my chair-mate, and I became her chewtoy. I believe they made a per fect choice for her name. This coming Sunday evening, New Hope Baptist Church willhave a fellowship and welcometime for newlyweds Pastor Tren ton and Courtney Living-stoneat 6:30. Please bring your fa vorite finger-food or dessert,along with your best wishes forour new youth pastor and hisnew wife. June is definitely a month for birthday and anniversary cele brations. Congratulations to oneand all! On this week’s list of birth days are: Judson Kyle Conley,Bethany Barnett, Ernest Hen-drikson, Jeff King, BrysonWhite and Debbie Wheeler. Wemustn’t forget to send bestwishes to several others, includ ing: Randy Crews, Helen Mar-tin, Morgan Norris, JonathanBenbow and Michelle Graham.Happy birthday to you, too:Darte Ahlbrandt, DanielleWeeks and Gloria Hernandez. Long-distance birthday wishes go to Shannon Bradley,who serves as a Southern BaptistConvention international mis sionary to Prague. He is the sonof Hugh and Libby Bradley. Happy anniversary, and may God bless you with many moreyears of love and life together:Ryn and Bailey Heine, Bryanand Amanda Cook, Brian andGilly Knight, Ernest and Pau-line Hendrikson, and John andMildred White. As I close, may I share a few words of wisdom from theBible: “Whatsoever is com manded by the God of Heaven,let it be diligently done,” Ezra7:23. Collecting Q: I grew up in West Texas before theera of air conditioning.We had electric fansscattered throughoutour house to help ussurvive the summerheat. I still have threeof them, all from the1930s and '40s. Arethey considered col lectible? —Sue Beth, Spring Branch, Texas A: If your vintage fans have brass blades, you have the mostcollectible. Serious enthusiastsseek out older fans with such fea tures as Art Deco designs and ex posed coils, and even rarer oneswith light bulbs mounted on theunit. If the paint is in reasonablygood shape and the fan is inworking condition, the valuemay surprise you. For example,fans spotted recently include aWestinghouse Vane Oscillator,$650; an Emerson three-speedTrojan, $400; a GE "Whiz," $55;and an Emerson "Junior," $75. The American Fan Collector Association is one of the bettergroups and publishes a niftynewsletter, "The Fan Collector."The website can be accessed atwww.fancollectors.org. Mem bership is $45 per year and maybe submitted to Dick Boswell,2245 Harrison Ave., Lincoln, NE68502; and membership@fan collectors.org. Do not contactBoswell concerning questionsabout the age or value of fans.That is not his purpose. Q: I have about a dozen is sues of the SaturdayEvening Post from the1960s. They are in ex cellent condition, butno covers of historicalinterest. Is there amarket for such publi cations? —Bill, Louisiana, Mo. A: Most issues of the Saturday Evening Post from this period sell in the $10 to$20 range, depending on bothcontent and condition. The issuescovering the assassination ofJohn Kennedy in 1963 are popu lar with collectors, but rarely sellfor more than about $25. Q: While cleaning out my mom's desk, I found about adozen sheets of Christmas sealsfrom the 1950s. I plan to sellthem at a garage sale and won der how I should price them. —Donna, Mitchell, S.D. A: Occasionally sheets of Christmas seals pop up at shopsand antiques malls. Even thoughthey are collectible, prices haveremained fairly stagnant. Most ofthe examples I have seen fromthe 1950s generally sell for abouta dollar a sheet.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O.

By Larry CoxQ: I don't have a lot of expe rience with yard work, but I'mtrying to save money by doingmuch of it myself. I've figuredout lawn mowing, but how canI get the edges trimmed? Idon't want to buy an expensiveedger. —Sarah in Mobile, Ala. A: A string trimmer (also known as a Weed Whacker,Weed Eater or weed trimmer)doubles as a good edger, and isreally affordable: You can pur chase an electric trimmer for aslittle as $40. For a little more(about $100 on average) you canget a cordless electric trimmer,which eliminates the hassle ofdragging around extension cordsand the worries about acciden tally striking one. To use the trimmer on lawn edges, angle it slightly down ward toward the edge you're tar-geting, engage the motor bypressing the control trigger, andease the whirring string towardthe grass until just the tip of thestring touches it. Move it alongthe edge of the grass, trimming itto the same height as the rest ofthe freshly mowed lawn. A few safety notes here: J:E/GAE3/@:=<5B@=CA3@A and sturdy, close-toed shoeswhen doing any lawn work, par ticularly with power tools andmowers. J,3/@3G3>@=B31B7=

June 26, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B The Squeezin’s By LeAnna Himrod Peace River Valley Citrus Growers MEET THE NEW EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR I am very honored to be selected as the new executive director of the Peace River Valley Citrus Growers Association and to be rep resenting our local citrus growers, who are some of th e most re silient, hardworking people in the state. Our growers inspire meevery day by the stories they share and their wealth of knowledge. I feel so blessed to have a career that embodies everything that I stand for and believe in. Through my family’s involvement in thecitrus industry and growing up in our agricultural community, I havelearned the importance of the symbolic relationship between agri culture and environment, becoming deeply attached to the role inwhich government plays. At a very young age, I have felt a strong connection to this in dustry and have a profound understanding of the hardships that ourgrowers face. The industry has proven to be a roller-coaster ride,dealing with issues such as freezes and invasions of pest and disease. Replanting after freezes, dealing with the aftermath of hurri canes, going through a battle with the citrus Canke r eradication pro gram, and many years fighting in Florida’s court system are amongthe various memories that encompass my childhood. As a small girlgrowing up and living through these misfortunes, I witnessed myfather and grandfather continue to fight to rebuild their businessfrom the ground up. As a sixth-generation Floridian with deep roots within the in dustry, I will work every day to protect the future of our industryand will continue to fight for our growers. While the citrus industry has been through many tests, it has never been so challenged as it is today by the citrus Greening dis ease, known as huanglongbing or HLB. What our industry needsright now is team leadership. This involves joining forces with eachother and working together. I urge our growers to participate in our local Citrus Health Man agement Areas and to share with each other the management prac tices that are working best in their groves. I encourage our growersto attend industry meetings to have their voices heard. Our best lab oratory to find a solution for Greening is in the thousands of acresthat our growers own and work in every day. We must be engaged,asking questions and searching for answers. When I think about the members of Florida’s citrus industry, I think about the pioneers, providers, the “fighters,” and the backboneof our state. I think about the word “grassroots” and draw upon ourhistory and what it stands for. This is not the time to back down. Itis time to fight to save our industry. Team leadership within the citrus industry can build something very influential. It can empower a group of individuals that providefor over 700,000 jobs in our state. An effective group of growerswho band together can achieve something that has yet to be seen inthe industry. Legislative and financial gains could be monumental. Team leadership allows for endless possibilities and can move our industry into the future, which in our current state, is what weare fighting to keep. In Business By Joan Seaman YOU WANT IT, YOU GOT IT — “Stop by and see what we can do for you. Give us an idea and we’ll do it.” Co-owner Sonia Freeland described the variety of custom-made materials she has available at The Sign Shop and More. The shop is in a corner of the consignment store Munchkin & Me at 104 Carlton St., Wauchula. Tami and David Poucher own theconsignment store and David recently partnered with Freeland tooperate the sign shop. Initially, it was next door, but they found iteasier to combine the efforts in the one location. Freeland can make just about anything one could want, any size, from a business card to a sign big enough for the side of a build ing, and everything in between.

Footageof Ryan with his family on oneof his cattle ranches provided adifferent perspective of a manthat many people know onlyfrom his legendary baseball ca reer. Ryan has loved raising cattle since he was a child. He first gotinto the cattle business in aroundabout way. He started vis iting ranches in South Texas be cause he was interested in deerhunting. He ended up spending alot of time driving around look ing at the cattle in the pasturesand decided to go into the cattlebusiness. Now, Ryan provideshis tender Nolan Ryan All-Nat ural Beef to Kroger stores, sup pliers and restaurants around thecountry. "I have high standards when it KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow comes to steaks!" Ryan says."After years of trying to find aconsistent steak, I finally decidedthe only way I could guaranteebeef that's good every time wasto start my own brand. I gatheredseveral ranching friends and en listed some of the top meat sci entists and beef marketingpeople in the world. Together, wedeveloped a program to provideguaranteed tender, all-naturalbeef that would always be tender,tasty and a great value for fami lies." I've never cooked with beef products that were even close tothe quality of Ryan's All-NaturalBeef. While there are many def initions of "all-natural," his beefgoes beyond even the U.S. De partment of Agriculture's defini tion of "minimally processedwith no additives or preserva tives." The company uses themost wholesome ingredientsfrom cattle raised in a stress-freeenvironment. The science saysthat happy cattle produce a greatproduct. It turns out that stress isthe single biggest cause of tough steaks. Ryan and the other cattleowners who provide beef for hiscompany treat their animals in ahumane way that ensures a safe,pure and healthy product. To develop the cookbook, Ryan and his team worked withCristobal Vazquez — executivechef at Rangers Ballpark in Ar lington, Texas, and Nolan's per sonal chef — to produce apractical and inspiring recipecollection that will allow you toprepare delicious beef. One of my favorite recipes in Ryan's cookbook is the Easy T-Bone with Soy and PineappleMarinade. It's the perfect recipefor a holiday celebration or a ca sual family dinner. EASY T-BONE WITH SOY AND PINEAPPLE MARINADE This recipe for marinated andgrilled T-Bone steaks was a win ner with my family! It show cased the full flavors andtenderness of Ryan's beef per fectly!2/3 cup olive oil1/3 cup red wine vinegar1/4 cup pineapple juice1/4 cup soy sauce8 T-bone steaks, 1-inch thick1 teaspoon kosher salt1 teaspoon freshly groundblack pepper 1. In a large glass baking dish, combine olive oil, vinegar,pineapple juice, and soy sauce.Set aside 1/4 cup of the marinadein a small bowl to use for bast ing. 2. Add the steaks to the dish and turn to coat well. Set aside atroom temperature for 30 min utes. 3. Preheat grill to medium and lightly oil grill grates. Drainsteaks and discard marinade.Season steaks with salt and pep per, and place on the grill. Cook steaks (in batches, if necessary)for 6-8 minutes per side formedium, basting with reservedmarinade and turning steaks withtongs several times. Use tongsrather than a fork to juices sealedin. 4. Remove steaks from grill. Let rest for 5-10 minutes. (Dur ing grilling, juices are forced tocenter of the steak, so if you digin right away, the juices will pud dle on your plate. Resting gives the juices a chance to re-distrib ute through the meat for a juiciersteak.)

ROACH: I have had lower-back problems al most all my life. Many doctorsand therapists have examinedit, with almost no success. Re cently my attacks have beenfewer and milder, even if thebed is not quite right. I can livewith it, but a new wrinkle hasemerged: If I don't get out ofbed as soon as the alarmsounds, I'll have back pain andlittle mobility all day and par tial incapacity. I am 74 yearsold, 6 feet, 4 inches tall andweigh 230 pounds. Do youhave any idea what causes this,and if there is any cure? —J.S.B. ANSWER: There are dozens of causes of back pain, and it canbe impossible, even with themost advanced diagnostic tests,to make a precise diagnosis ofthe underlying cause. In your case, it sounds like you have had one problem for a longtime and now something is caus ing a different kind of back prob lem. Back pain that gets worsewith bed rest and better with ex ercise is not likely to be a herni ated disc or spinal stenosis —two serious causes of back pain. I am guessing that there is a component of osteoarthritis inyour back now, which would be quite common in a 74-year-oldman. Osteoarthritis does tend toget worse with rest and betterwith exercise. I am impressed byhow acutely it gets worse, andit's entirely possible that theremay be some muscular spasm as sociated with your back pain. Even though you are quite tall, 230 pounds is a lot for your spineto support. You have a BMI of28, which is in the "overweight"range. Losing even five or 10pounds may help relieve pain onyour back. And certainly listen toyour body, and get up and be ac tive. Stretching, including yogaand tai chi, can be a very effec tive treatment. The arthritis booklet discusses joint pain found in osteoarthritis,rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.Readers can order a copy bywriting: Dr. Roach — No. 301W,Box 536475, Orlando, FL32853-6475. Enclose a check ormoney order (no cash) for $4.75U.S./$6 Canada with the recipi ent's printed name and address.Please allow four weeks for de livery. DEAR DR. ROACH: My gallbladder was removed 16years ago, and I have been hav ing frequent diarrhea for those16 years! I understand it's be cause without the gallbladder,there's no bile. It seems to methat with all the brilliant re searchers in the world, some one could come up with asubstitute for bile. A pill,maybe? I am an 85-year-old female and have seen at least four gas troenterologists during thistime, and none of them had aclue. The last one I saw told meto "live with it." Has anyoneasked you about this problem? —D.E. ANSWER: It's not uncom mon at all. Also, the liver stillmakes bile, and some expertsthink that it is too much bile thatcauses diarrhea. If occasionalImodium isn't doing the job, Ihave had good success withcholestyramine, which binds ex cess bile salts.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.

Can you tell mewhat's up with that? —Janet Y., via email A: The former star of "The Young and the Restless" was castas a series regular in the 2013ABC pilot; however, the networkdecided not to pick up the show.Never fear: Michael has beentapped to co-star in the Lifetimeseries called "The Lottery,"which is set in a dystopian futuredriven by a global fertility crisis.

(c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. Celebrity Extra By Cindy Elavsky HOARDING I am turning over my column this week to James Simpson, who hassome information on the dangers of hoarding: Recently I received an informative e-mail about hoarding and I started to recall “Hoarding: Buried Alive,” a TV show about hoard ing. I originally thought it was just another reality TV show justtrying to receive TV ratings but, unfortunately, it really is a realityfor a lot of people. For those of you not familiar with the TV series, it shows ex actly what you think it does, people who live in various conditionswhere they accumulate stuff to the point of where it becomes a haz ard. Of course by hazard, I mean a health and life safety hazard. There can be numerous health hazards associated with hoard ing. Everyone knows when stuff accumulates in our homes we getthe typical dirt, dust, dander and dust mites. Have you ever stopped to think what else might be lurking in that pile of stuff that is waiting for a yard sale? Depending on howlong your stuff has been waiting, rodents or other critters could beliving in those piles among you, with or without you knowing. Nowthese little critters probably are not going outside to use the rest room, instead their piles are left right there with the piles of yourstuff. Over time these remnants can lead to respiratory issues andother health complications. Gross, right? Hoarding can be a life safety hazard because of two reasons: immediate safety hazard and fire hazards. On the TV show there are homes where stuff has taken over living spaces in every room. Imagine walking throug h this home, where you have to walk sideways through the living room and fall.This stuff could also potentially fall on you, and make it difficult tofind you. Could someone living with you find you? What if there is a fire within the home among the extra clutter? Could you safely get out? Could your local fire-rescue find you ineither situation? Hardee County Fire-Rescue personnel have exten sive training in search and rescue, but sometimes these types of haz ards pose a serious challenge for us. Spring turned to summer just this past Saturday. But maybe there’s still time for spring cleaning. If yard sales aren’t your thing,we have many great thrift shops that would love donations. You canlet your junk be someone else’s treasure, just don’t buy your stuffback! Of course, true hoarding has an emotional aspect to it as well. If you or someone you know needs help with hoarding, contact fam ily, friends or a professional who deals with hoarding on a dailybasis. Or, contact your local law enforcement or fire-rescue and wecan help you find the help you need. The Fireside By James Stillwagon Hardee County Fire-Rescue Chief REPLACING MILITARY MEDALS Medals awarded while in active service are issued by the indi vidual military services if requested by veterans or their next of kin.Requests for replacement medals, decorations and awards should bedirected to the branch of the military in which the veterans served.

Even though Ikeep the sliding doors closed,as soon as I open them to getsomething, she jumps right inand hides in the very back cor ner. How can I stop this? —Frustrated in Fresno DEAR FRUSTRATED: There must be something awesomeabout that closet. Wait, I know:It's a dark, cozy hiding spot ...something most cats love. Theremay be something attractive onthe floor of the closet, like stringsdangling from a bag of knittingor small lint balls. Or, your cat could be hiding from a perceived threat. Do youhave a dog or another cat? Jesscould be looking for a placewhere she isn't bullied or barkedat. Is Jess spayed? If not, has she spent time outside or been incontact with other cats? Pregnantcats begin hunting for a dark,safe spot as the time to have theirkittens approaches. If you're notsure, take Jess to the vet to gether checked out. Is she showing signs of possi ble illness — like personalitychanges, lethargy, excessive me owing, not cleaning her coat orother strange behavior? Cats thatare sick will instinctively try tohide to avoid predators. Take herto the vet if anything seemsamiss, even a little bit. If none of these apply and Jess' health checks out, employ someredirection. Sprinkle a little pep permint oil on the floor of thecloset, or put down some ducttape — the tape feels weird tocats, and they'll avoid it. Mean time, provide an acceptable alter native hiding spot, like an ele vated cat climber with a sheltercubby. And keep Jess out of theroom if possible before openingthe closet door.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

The Community Redevelopment Agency and Main StreetWauchula Inc. partnered lastyear to create the “Paint TheTown” project. It now occursannually on the Saturday afterthe Missions on Main event indowntown Wauchula. First, the Main Street team picks a neighborhood thatwould benefit from havinghouses repainted, and thensends letters to each homestead ed house in the area to deter mine who is interested in partic ipating. Finally, the Economic Restructuring Committee of MainStreet Wauchula selects thehomes to be painted based onneed and number of volunteersrecruited. This year, Paint The Town had eight teams volunteer. Teams included Hardee County Fire-Rescue, the city ofWauchula, the Fellowship ofChristian Athletes, First Chris-tian Church (#BeTheChurch),Kiwanis Club/Key Club,PRECO Revived, AmericanRed Cross and Main StreetWauchula. “This event gives us the opportunity to reach out a help ing hand and truly be the handsof Christ,” says KimberlyCanary, First Christian Church’s team captain. “Ourteam enjoyed seeing the happi ness and joy our hard workbrought to the homeowner.” “It is really neat to see this project come together,” saidJessica Newman, who is boththe Main Street Inc. directorand the Wauchula CommunityRedevelopment Agency coordi nator. “Homeowners are so ap-pre ciative of our teams, and oftenwe see the homeowners makingadditional repairs to theirhomes and yards once theyreceive the fresh coat of paint.“Paint The Town allows us tosee an immediate and tangibledifference we are making inWauchula,” she concluded. ‘Paint The Town’ Gives 7 Houses A Facelift This time, Hardee County Fire-Rescue is bringing new life to a st ructure.

By CHIP BALLARDFor The Herald-Advocate Duke Platt swept his arm out to indicate the 47 acres knownas Reality Ranch that lie 2-1/2miles east of Zolfo Springs,south of State Road 66. According to Platt, who built the pole barn and helps withrodeos, “Reality Ranch beganas a vision Randy had. But Godhad a bigger vision than Randyever dreamed of. Now it hasbecome all this.” Randy Johnson started Reality Ranch on March 23,1998. By 1999, donations werecoming in, and the ranch beganto grow. “It’s about helping kids,” Johnson says. “But really it’sabout anyone else we can help,too. Helping people, that’s whatwe’re all about.” Johnson was born in Kissimmee in 1953 and raisedin Avon Park by Christian par ents who are active in all phas es of Reality Ranch activities.As a child and young man,Johnson attended church regu larly. He also participated insports and outdoor hobbies suchas rodeos, baseball, football,hunting, fishing, camping,breaking horses and raisingdogs. But in 1971, he graduated from high school, left home,took a job on a large ranch, andstrayed from his Christianroots. In August of 1975, while swimming with friends in LakeIsis in Avon Park, Johnson doveinto water too shallow andbroke his neck, rendering him aC-5 quadriplegic. He was 21years old. He has been in awheelchair ever since. But he isconfident he will walk againand have full use of his armsand hands, through God’sdivine healing. As Johnson lay in bed after X-rays, he overheard a doctorsay, “This young man willnever walk again.” Later, asthey were drilling holes into hishead to hold his broken neck intraction, a sudden and suresense he was dying settled uponhim, and he cried out to God formercy and forgiveness forstraying from his Christian path. “In a flash of glory, a per fect peace flooded my soul,” hesaid. The next instant he found himself riding the wings of agreat white dove. “Later, I cameto realize the dove symbolizedthe Holy Spirit,” he said. “I sawJesus, waving, and I began toweep with overwhelming joy.”But suddenly, without any spo ken words, Johnson understoodthat his work on earth was notdone, and with a smooth grace ful turn, the dove began to sailback in the direction fromwhich it had just come. With ajolt, Randy found himself onceagain inside his physical body,lying in bed in the hospital. Hewas paralyzed from the neckdown. After the profound spiritual experience, which Johnson sayswas as real as anything he hasever experienced, he recommit ted his life to Christ, and since1980 he has been a full-timeminister. On June 26, 1982, hewas ordained. In 1990 he became active once again in rodeo life, thoughthis time not as a contestant butby conducting Cowboy Churchservices at Florida High SchoolRodeos, Florida Junior Rodeos, the Kissimmee Silver Spurs Rodeo,and other arenas and churchesthroughout Florida. Thursday at Reality Ranch is “horse day,” with therapeuticriding programs for the physi cally and mentally challenged.Jessica Gilmore, a professionalriding instructor, is in charge ofthe program, but volunteersfrom Lydia’s House in Wau-chula come out to assist. The Wauchula Kiwanis Club contributes to Reality Ranchand insures the handicap ridingprogram. “Their assistance isinvaluable in all phases ofyouth activities,” Johnson said. Johnson himself is often back in the saddle, thanks to aspecial therapeutic saddle madefor him in 1994 by the FloridaHigh School Rodeo Associationand the Florida Junior RodeoAssociation. Johnson keeps thesaddle displayed in an old milk ing parlor which has become amulti-purpose room and, during youth camps, serves as CowboyChapel. Once a year, Reality Ranch hosts the Florida JuniorRodeo which draws more than200 kids who stay for threedays. “It’s more than we canaccommodate,” Johnson says.“We put some of the kids up inour bunkhouse. Some comewith campers. Others stay inHardee County motels and stillthere’s an overflow into motelsas far away as Avon Park, Ar-cadia and Sebring.” Reality Ranch has a fine rodeo ground and for threemonths each year hosts aBuckaroo Rodeo for kids up to12 years old. More than 50 kidsparticipate, Johnson said. Thefinal rodeo of 2014 was onSaturday, May 31. The bleachers at the rodeo ground were donated by NeilEllis of Plant City. They weredismantled and hauled toReality Ranch by volunteers.Tropical Farms, which has beenheavily involved in numerousprojects and continues to beinvolved, “totally reassembledthe bleachers, painted them, putin new lumber where needed,did welding, and whatever elseneeded doing, they did it,”Johnson explained. “Also,” Johnson added, “for the past five years the Fellow-ship of Christian FarmersInternational has volunteered todo general maintenance repair,and as many as 25 people arriveevery November to help.” Nadudana Cattle, or Miniature Zebu, are used in thesteer-riding competition. Theseanimals are the ancestral cattleof India and Pakistan. In Egyptthey were once used for plow ing. They look exactly likeBrahmans except that the aver age height of the Zebu, on theback behind the hump, is about36 inches. Every Sunday at 11 a.m. Cowboy Church services areheld under the pole barn. “Butyou don’t have to be a cowboyto attend,” said Johnson, whousually delivers the sermon. Johnson helps many local churches by hosting camps andoutings, loaning horses, as wellas motivational speaking or preaching. He helps whencalled upon to assist with otherworthwhile programs, like thecounty’s 4-H clubs. “I’ve said many times if I could trade my salvation for allthe physical ability I once pos sessed, there’s no way I’d doit,” Johnson said. “Nothing compares to the peace of God.Nothing.” Johnson says he owes a great debt of gratitude to all the manypeople and organizations thatmake Reality Ranch a reality.He serves on many local organ izations and has been the recip ient of numerous awards, most recently the governor’s awardfor continuous long-time serv ice. But Johnson says his greatest rewards come from the smilesand happiness brought to trou bled children or disabled per sons. “That’s my life,” he says.
