MONSTER MAN CelebrateAmerica’sFreedom! Patriotic Musical, Fireworks Display Blast Off Saturday Woman Forgets 4-Year-Old At Walmart Public Hearing Today On Shadowlawn Development Would Bring 1,245 Homes & More Here Safety Seats Now Tax-Free By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Plans for a large develop ment proposed on former phosphate land west of Bowl ing Green will be heard bythe County Commission onThursday in the first of twopublic hearings before the re quested land-use change canbe awarded. The hearing is set to begin at 8:35 a.m. Shadowlawn, which could have as many as 1,245 homeson the 1,204-acre pro-perty,would then go before thestate Depart-ment of Eco nomic Opportunity (DEO) toensure the deveopmentwould not have a negative ef fect on state resources, suchas water and existing roads. If the land-use change is granted and the DEO deter mines the proposal does nothave any adverse effects, de velopers would then have togo through the Planned UnitDevelopment (PUD) permit ting process, which is morethorough and site specificthan a land-use change. During the PUD hearings, the developers would presentdetailed plotting of the prop erty to distinguish whereroads, houses, and commer cial and light-industrialspaces would be located. The PUD process would go before the county Planning & Zoning Board for arecommendation in the com ing months, and would thenbe forwarded to commission ers for approval during twoadditional public hearings be fore any construction couldbegin. Half of the proposed homes would be reserved forresidents 55 and over, devel opers said. The development could also have up to 218 RVspaces, 20,000 square feet ofoffice space, 40,000 squarefeet of retail stores and300,000 square feet of lightindustrial uses. By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate A new state law will make it easier to keep children safe. Beginning July 1, there is no longer any sales tax on specifiedchild safety items. Youth bicyclehelmets, child restraint systemsand booster seats became tax ex empt on Tuesday. While child restraint systems and booster seats for use inmotor vehicles are now exemptfrom state tax, accessories or ad ditional components that aresold separately are not. For instance, if a customer purchases an infant car seat andbase, which are tax exempt, andalso chooses to purchase a car seat mirror to be able to see thechild while driving, the car seatmirror is not tax exempt. To be eligible for tax exemp tion, bicycle helmets must be la beled or packaged as intendedfor youth. The tax exemptiondoes not apply to bicycle hel mets marketed for adults. The exemptions, signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott, are justin time to still provide an extrameasure of safety during sum mer bike riding or vacation cartrips.

Soto By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A woman who left a store with her purchases but not withone of the children in her carenow faces criminal charges. Karrie Ann Soto, 32, of 125 Carlton St., Apt. 42, Wauchula,has been charged with neglect ofa child without great harm, athird-degree felony. The 4-year-old girl she left at Walmart in Wauchula sufferedno physical injury, authoritiessaid. Soto was arrested at Walmart on Tuesday, June 3, by Det. An drew McGuckin of the HardeeCounty Sheriff’s Office. Sheposted a $1,000 surety bondabout six hours later to gain herrelease from custody pendingtrial. And last week in Hardee Cir cuit Court, the State Attor-ney’s Office amended the chargeagainst her to neglect of a child,still a third-degree felony. Sotowas arraigned on that charge onTuesday, and pleaded not guilty. The Public Defender’s Office will represent her. Soto’s nextcourt date, set as a pre-trial hear ing, will be Tuesday, Aug. 19, at8:30 a.m. If convicted of the offense, she faces a possible maximumsentence of five years in FloridaState Prison. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Maj. Randy Dey said the inci dent occurred early the morningof June 3. Soto, he said, took the 4-yearold and seven other children – atotal of eight under the age of 12— to the Walmart Super-centerat 1480 U.S. 17 N. in Wauchula. She made a purchase, and then left the store with all of the children except this one littlegirl, he alleged. Soto returned to her residence at the Wauchula Garden Apart-ments, not realizing that one ofthe eight children in her carewas no longer with her, Dey ex plained. It took about an hour before one of the 4-year-old’s siblingsasked Soto where her sister was.Soto began to look for the child,Dey said, and ultimately placeda phone call to the Walmart Su percenter. Soto asked the Walmart em ployee who answered the phoneif they had found a little girlthere, but could not tell the em ployee the child’s name, as shedid not know it, Dey alleged. The employee told Soto the child was still there. But whenSoto arrived at the store to re trieve the 4-year-old, she was met at the front entrance bysheriff’s Det. McGuckin. McGuckin and an investigator with the state Department ofChildren & Families spoke withSoto, who said “she had somany kids with her, and did notrealize that she had left one atSee 4-YEAR-OLD 2A By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate “And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I knowI’m free. And I won’t forget themen who died, who gave thatright to me …” “God Bless the USA” is the perfect song to sing on Inde-pendence Day, the day when theUnited States of America offi cially declared its freedom fromGreat Britain. This Fourth ofJuly marks 238 years since theDeclaration of Independencewas signed. To commemorate this occa sion, the sky will light up withthundering fireworks and patri otic music will be heardthroughout Pioneer Park on Sat urday. The Hardee County Builders Association is once again host ing the community fireworksdisplay. However it takes severalothers to put on this event, in cluding local businesses and cit izens, county government, theSheriff’s Office, Fire-Rescueand the municipalities of Bowl ing Green, Wauchula and ZolfoSprings. But before the fireworks go off, a patriotic musical will takeplace in the park. This is the firstyear “America … Of Thee ISing” will be put on for the com munity. In prior years, the musi cal has been performed at OakGrove Baptist Church, under thedirection of its minister ofmusic, the Rev. Tim Davis. Davis says it’s been a dream to perform this musical forHardee County. He has noticedthat there are big Easter pro grams and a Christmas programfrom Heartland Chorale everyyear, but none for the Fourth ofJuly. Davis now hopes to makethis patriotic program an annualevent. The program will begin with See CELEBRATE 2A

AAA Travel projects 41 mil lion Americans will journey 50miles or more from home duringthe Independence Day holidayweekend, a 1.9 percent increasefrom the 40.3 million peoplewho traveled last year and anearly 14 percent increase com pared to the Memorial Day hol iday weekend. The majority of travelers will be celebrating their freedomwith a road trip, with more thaneight in 10 (34.8 million) choos ing to travel by automobile, thehighest level since 2007. This Independence Day holi day travel period is defined asWednesday to Sunday. “With school out for summer, the Fourth of July holiday is typ ically the busiest summer travelholiday," said Mark Jenkins,spokesman, AAA The AutoClub Group. “About five millionmore Americans travel for thisholiday compared to Memorialor Labor Day weekends. Tradi tionally, the majority of thosecelebrating our nation's inde pendence take a road trip." Forecast Highlights Travel volume for Independence Day has grown four out ofthe past five years and is ex pected to be more than six per cent higher than the average ofthe past 10 years. ment picture and rising homevalues means they are starting tofeel more comfortable taking ondebt." Automobile Preferred About 85 percent of holiday travelers prefer to drive to theirdestination. Nationally, AAAforecasts there to be 34.8 millionautomobile travelers, a 2.2 per cent increase from last year andthe highest volume in sevenyears (35.1 million in 2008). "Consumers are still mindful of their personal finances," con tinued Jenkins. "Auto travel isthe best option for controllingexpenses. It allows travelers themost flexibility in trip lengthand the option of making last-minute changes." Gasoline Prices AAA expects the majority of drivers likely will pay the high est gas prices for IndependenceDay since 2008. Today’s na tional average price of gas is 20cents per gallon more expensivethan the average on July 4, 2013,which was $3.48 per gallon. In recent years gas prices have declined in the weeks leading upto Independence Day, but thishas not occurred this summerdue to high crude oil costs re sulting from violence in Iraq. "Current gas prices are still cheaper than this year's peakprice and unlikely to deter peo ple from traveling," Jenkins con tinued. "Many travel plans havealready been made, and budgetsset aside. In some cases, con sumers will reallocate theirbudgets and cut back on dining,shopping or other trip activi ties." Air Travel Nearly 7.6 percent of travelers will fly to their destination. Thatis roughly even with last year'sshare. Air fares have declined five percent, with the average round-trip discounted fare for the top40 U.S. routes costing $215,down from $228 last year. Travel Expenses According to AAA’s Leisure Travel Index, hotel rates forAAA Three Diamond lodgingsare expected to increase ninepercent from one year ago, withtravelers spending an average of$178 per night compared to$164 last year. The average ratefor Two Diamond hotels hasrisen 15 percent, with an averagecost of $137 per night. Weekend daily car rental rates will average $58, the same aslast year. Willingness to take on credit card debt, not an increase in in come, is responsible for the in crease in consumer spendingthat is spurring the rise in overalltravel. Nearly five million more Americans are expected to travelfor Independence Day than forMemorial Day. Holiday air travel is expected to increase one percent to 3.1million travelers from 3.07 mil lion last year. Travelers will encounter air fares five percent lower than lastyear and car rental costs that re main consistent with last year at$58. Hotel rates at AAA Two Dia mond hotels are 15 percenthigher than last year and ThreeDiamond hotels are nine percentmore. Economy Spurs Travel "Steady improvement in the economy along with increasedconsumer spending and confi dence are the main factors driv ing more Americans to take atrip, Jenkins said. "Consumerspending is expected to rise 4.2percent, because of increasingcredit not rising incomes. Con sumers have been hesitant to addto their credit card balances thepast several years, but continuedimprovements in the employ AAA Predicts Heavy Holiday Travel Kelly’s Column By Jim Alpha & Omega Freedom Ministries in Wauchula is a worth while ministry to support. The 501c3 non-profit organization beganwhen John Gillespie, 86, and his wife Lorraine, 79, started a prisonministry in 1982. They have a heart for people who are strugglingemotionally, physically and financially. They took a journey to Abba House and learned how to counsel and heal from the heart. John has a master’s degree in theology, andLorraine has a bachelor’s degree in theology, with state certificationas a domestic violence counselor. At one time in her life Lorrainewas a victim of domestic violence. Hannah’s House shelter started in 2007. They are helping women and children who are victims of domestic violence or home less, and they counsel Hardee County residents. A motto is “Women and children have the right to live free of fear, intimidation, threats, violence and inhumane or degrading treat ment.” Hannah’s House Complex has 17 apartments for single or homeless mothers and children at rent based on income.

The office is at 113 N. 7th Ave. in Wauchula. –––––– T Rowe Price compared Americans’ personal consumption ex penditures in 1952 and 2012, a span of 60 years. The amount spentfor food has gone from 29 to 14 percent; housing, 16 to 18 percent;health care, 5 to 20 percent; clothing, 11 to 3 percent; transportation,11 to 10 percent; recreation, 6 to 9 percent; and financial services/in surance, 3 to 7 percent. Part of the rise in health care is the increased cost of advanced medical technology. Improved efficiency in production and manu facturing methods has pushed down the cost of food and clothing. –––––– Wayne Collier, a fifth generation Hardee County rancher, is fea tured in the current Florida Agriculture magazine published byFlorida Farm Bureau. An ancestor John Collier sold cattle to theconfederate Army in the Civil War. He and his wife Lucy owned Rocking Bar W. Ranch, producing cattle and citrus. They received a CARES award last year for bestmanagement practices. –––––– Florida Agriculture also features Eloise Stewart, 103, who owns Riverview Farms in Madison County. She and her late husbandLewis Stewart in 1932 bought 1,000 acres of farmland for $3 an acre and worked hard to pay it off in three years. The farm grows trees,cattle, pigs and chickens. Her daughters Frances Copeland and Ben nie Rose run the farm today. Her husband used to travel to Missouri to being back truckloads of mules and to Tennessee to bring back Jersey cattle. Her fatherused to grow cane and make a lot of cane syrup. She would havebiscuits and a bottle of cane syrup in her school lunch box. Eloise was born on a farm and has never known anything but farming and country life, wrote Rachael Smith. –––––– Hardee County can attract some economic development, but certainly not like the greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County al liance which has three major airports, three major seaports and sevenexecutive airports in South Florida. –––––– USA today recently reported the S&P 500 stock index lost 40 percent of value from the time President George W. Bush was inau gurated until he left office 8 years later. The index has gained 143percent in the nearly 5 1/2 years under President Barack Obama. There have been 11 Bull Markets since 1949, ranging from 2 to 10 years. The average is 5 years. The current Bull Market is 5years. Is it time for a Bear Market soon? Who knows? Most financial experts suggest being diversified. Don’t have all your eggs in one basket. Have a mix of stocks, bonds and moneymarket securities, based on age and other factors. Consistent regularsaving is recommended. Traditionally stocks gain more than bonds. Cash investments are safer but often do not keep up with inflation, yielding low re turns. –––––– Not everyone knows the Affordable Health Care Act requires insurance companies to rebate part of the premiums they receivedif they do not spend at least 80 percent of the premiums on healthcare services such as doctors, hospital bills and activities to improvequality health care, such as efforts to improve patient safety. No more than 20 percent of premiums may be spent on admin istrative costs such as salaries, sales and advertisin g. This is referred to as the Medical Loss Ratio standard or the 80/20 rule, calculatedon a state-by-state basis. In 2013 Florida Blue took in $1.01 billion in premium dollars but spent 79 percent on health care and 20 percent on administrativeexpenses, thus having to refund 1 percent of the premium to policy holders or allow that amount as a credit to future premiums. –––––– The U.S. Census Bureau estimates Hardee County’s population was 27,519 in 2013, compared with 27,493 in 2012 and 27,731 in2010. While Hardee’s population since April 1, 2010 has declined 212 or 0.8 percent, Florida’s population has gone up 4 percent, form18,801,310 to 19,552,860. In 2012 Hardee’s population was 47.6 percent white, 43.1 per cent hispanic or latino, 7.5 percent black or African American, 1.2percent American Indian or Alaska native, and 1.3 percent Asianalone. Some 40.3 percent of homes in Hardee in 2012 had non-English language, compared with 27.3 percent statewide. Some 6 3.1 percent of Hardee adults 25 and over had a high school diploma, comparedwith 85.8 percent statewide. Some 8.7 percent of Hardee adults 25and over had a bachelor’s degree or higher, compared with 26.2 per cent statewide.

Per capita incomein 2012 and median household income in Hardee were $14,299 and$36,115 respectively, compared with $26,451 and $47,309statewide. Hardee in 2010 had 43.5 persons per square mile, comp ared with 350.6 statewide. –––––– Hardee County will celebrate the Fourth of July on Saturday, July 5, at Pioneer Park with a community choir at 7 p.m. followedby fireworks at dusk. –––––– Director Wendell Smith reported earlier this year Cutting Edge Ministries helps 180 to 200 families a week with food and otherproducts. He said Hardee County has a lot of low income familiesand seniors on fixed incomes. Food is given out twice a week at 3059 Elm Street in Zolfo Springs, on Tuesday and Friday 10 to 3. This is a worthwhile 501c3ministry. Their phone number is 773-2484. Bishop Smith is also pas tor of Faith Temple Church of God in Wauchula. On Wednesday, July 23, from 2 to 3:30 there will be one extra large food give-away for the needy at the Zolfo Springs location in stead of the smaller Tuesday/Friday events for that week. –––––– The Tampa Bay Rays have been winning more games lately, but are ranked No. 29 among 30 Major League Baseball teams inhome attendance, about 17,029 per game. Cleveland is No. 30 at16,833. The top 3 teams in home attendance are the LA Dodgers, 46,044; St. Louis Cardinals, 43,203; and New York Yankees, 42,666.The Rays play at Tropicana Field in St. Pete, about 75 minutes fromWauchula by car. –––––– Douglas Elliott of Haines City believes a true Christian will strive every day to be obedient to God’s word and be faithful. Hebelieves in the 10 Commandments and that marriage is between aman and a woman, as published June 28 in the Lakeland Ledger. –––––– Recent reports show Florida Gov. Rick Scott (GOP) has a net worth of $132.7 million. Former Gov. Charlie Crist (Dem.) has a net worth of $1.25 million. –––––– Lovie Smith has become the Tampa Bay Bucs 10th head coach. Only 1 of the previous 9 coaches had a winning record, Tony Dungyat 54-42 over 6 years. Tony did not take a team to or win a Super Bowl, so he was fired by the Glazer family. Jon Gruden won a Super Bowl the nextyear but his overall record was 55-55 in 7 seasons. I liked the Bucs first coach, John Mckay who won national col lege titles at Southern Cal. One of his best tailbacks was O.J. Simp son. McKay was the Bucs first head coach and went 44-88-1 in 9years, under an owner (Hugh Culverhouse) who did not spend a lotof money on payroll. Other Bucs head coaches were Leeman Bennett, Ray Perkins, Sam Wyche, Richard Williamson, Raheem Morris and Greg Schi ano. I believe Lovie Smith will have an overall winning record withthe Bucs. He did with the Chicago Bears. –––––– USA Today estimates 61,000 pounds of strawberries and 1,900 gallons of cream will be eaten at the Wimbledon tennis tournamentin England June 23-July 6. –––––– Ron Brown in the current FCA magazine quotes an Aesop fable on why the wolf could not catch the rabbit. The wolf was runningfor a meal, the rabbit was running for his life, a motivational edge. –––––– Great Plains Energy reported fuel costs for producing a kilowatt hour for 2013: coal, $2.14; nuclear, 79 cents; natural gas and oil,$9.41, and wind, zero.

July 3, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A man who stuffed a plastic bag of methamphetamine in hismouth in hopes of avoiding itsdetection during a traffic stophas now avoided prison time. Michael James Staton, 22, of 801 N. Clermont Ave., FortMeade, had been arrested by theHardee County Sheriff’s Officeon March 13 after a car he wasriding in was stopped for speed ing on U.S. 17 South. He was charged with posses sion of methamphetamine, tam pering with physical evidenceand possession of narcoticsequipment. In Hardee Circuit Court last week, Staton changed his pleafrom “not guilty” to “no con test,” and was sentenced by Cir cuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle tothree years of supervised proba tion. Further, the judge assessed $1,220 in fines, fees and courtcosts. Ezelle also adjudicatedStaton guilty of all three crimes. According to sheriff’s Maj. Randy Dey, Staton was one offour men taken into custody onMarch 13 as part of ongoing ef forts against drug activity. In hisinstance, he was seen that nightleaving an area known for nar cotics transactions. The vehicle he was riding in had an expired tag and was ex ceeding the speed limit, Deysaid. When stopped and about to be searched, Staton stuffed a smallplastic bag of meth in his mouth.That methamphetamine laterweighed in at 4.1 grams. Also in his possession, the major said, were numerous plas tic bags containing drug residue. Staton was arrested at 9:20 that night and booked into theHardee County Jail, where heremained until his release earlylast Thursday morning.

DEEP SEA TRIP By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A man who was pedaling around town attempting to ped dle a pocketful of pain pills hasreceived a split sentence in Har-dee Circuit Court. Michael Leon Holland, 27, of 231 Franklin St., BowlingGreen, was sentenced to 120days in the Hardee County Jailfollowed by five years of super vised probation for attemptedtrafficking in oxycodone, anopium derivative. In sentencing Holland last week, Circuit Judge Marcus J.Ezelle permitted him credit to ward his sentence for the 97days he already had served inthe county jail while awaitingthe outcome of this case. The judge also assessed $1,380 in fines, fees and court costs. Holland was released from jail early this Saturday morning,and was to report to his proba tion officer. According to Capt. Brett Dowden of the Bowling Green Police Department, Holland wasarrested on the night of March28 by Ofc. Jeremy Men-dozaafter failing to stop at a stop signwhile riding his bicycle throughthe intersection of Lemon Streetand U.S. 17. Bicyclists, the captain explained, are required to followthe same rules of the road asother drivers. A search revealed Holland had eight oxycodone pills in hispossession, which amounted tofour grams or more andprompted a trafficking charge.That charge later was amendedto attempted trafficking. For his part, Holland admitted he intended to sell the narcoticpills, Dowden said. He told police that he needed the money for necessities for hischild. Pedal Pusher A Pill Pusher Holland BE PREPARED Even if we don't have care givers now, it's a good idea tolook to the future.

July 3, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A SCALLOPS FOR THE TAKING! This installment of this column is written by Marine Fisheries staffmember Amanda Nalley. I’ll never forget my first time scalloping. It was 2008 and there I was, face down in the water, sun warming my back, seagrass tick ling my legs, searching for hidden treasure and trying not to lookup, lest there be something larger than me swimming about. A boatloomed above us, dive flag displayed, warning others that folks werein the water. In the distance, the Steinhatchee coast sat, waiting forour return. That was the day I fell in love with the sport of scalloping.There is something calming about intensely looking through plot after plot of identical grass for a hidden shell. You may not be lieve it, but I even enjoy the cleaning part — something that makesme quite popular with the scalloping crowd. It is easy to see why the season is touted as a family-friendly activity. Anyone who can snorkel can participate, and if someonedoesn’t want to be in the water, relaxing in the boat is not bad either.Cleaning time is great for catching up on the latest gossip or fishingtale. And then, after all is said and done, you get to take your bountyhome and make a delicious family meal. The economic benefits of the season are huge: boatloads of peo ple flock to the open region, often staying a few nights, rentingboats, eating in local restaurants and purchasing tackle and gearwhile enjoying the opportunity to harvest a great food from numer ous access points. The open region includes all Gulf state waters from the PascoHernando County line to the west bank of the Mexico Beach Canalin Bay County. While scallops can be found outside of these openareas, it is within this region that bay scallops are found in large enough numbers to be sustainably harvested. Bay scallop season opened last Saturday.Don’t feel rushed though, while the beginning of the season is exciting, there are plenty of opportunities for success midto late inthe season. By then, scallops have gotten bigger and are sometimeseasier to find. Interested in participating? While a boat will provide you with the most access to scalloping areas, there are places you can walkto from shore. At the very minimum, you will need a mask or gog gles, a recreational fishing license, something to hold your scallopcatch in such as a mesh bag, and something to make sure you don’tgo over your limit, which is two gallons of whole scallops in theshell, or one pint meat per person. Have a boat? The maximum vessel limit is 10 gallons of whole scallops in the shell or a half-gallon of meat. The daily per-personbag limit still applies but, for example, if you have more than fivepeople aboard (each being able to take two gallons whole), you stillcannot have more than 10 gallons total. Bag limits help ensure thescallop population remains sustainable. A divers-down flag is also required when scalloping f rom a boat to ensure other boaters are aware that there are people in the water. Once onshore, cleaning scallops is a cinch. Use an old spoon or knife (just be careful) to pry the shells slightly apart and then run the spoon along the inside of one of the shells, which will separatethe meat from the shell. Once open, you will see the white scallopmeat in the middle, surrounded by the darker guts. Run the spoonaround the edge of the guts and then pull it up and off, leaving onlythe scallop meat attached to the shell. Finally, use the spoon to sep arate the meat from the shell. This is just one way to do it (anotherfan favorite involves a shop-vac), so feel free to do some researchbefore getting started. Bay scallops are great sauted and tossed in with pasta, or eaten over a bed of lettuce. There are tons of recipes out there, and lookingfor them is almost as exciting as searching for the scallops. I hope you can go get out on the water and experience this won derful season yourself!This column hopes to help recreational anglers understand complexsaltwater regulations and learn more about saltwater fishing oppor tunities.

I have bee n a Hardee county resident all of my life. I grew up in Bowling Green and attended First Baptist Church of Bowling Green for most of my life. I am currently a member of Fort Green Baptist Church, and I h ave lived in the Fort Green community for many years. Recently, I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hepa tocellular carcinoma cancer, and had an extensive stay at the Bay Pines Veterans hospital, where I received excellent care. On June 7th, the communities of Bowling Green, Fort Gree n, and several of my friends, came together on my behalf, not only to celebrate my life, but al so to celebrate my Savior Jesus Christ, who gets all glory. It was a great evening of worship and fe llowship, and an experience I am so thankful to have been able to attend.Thank you First Baptist Church of Bowling Green for work ing with Fort Green Baptist Church to plan the concert, and for allowing the event to be held in Bow ling Green, it meant a lot to me because that is the church I grew up in.Thank you to my church family in Fort Green for helping plan the event, getting the word out there, and for all your prayers and support these past few month s. I would also like to express my appreciation to the ban ds that performed at the benefit concert. To David Spencer and Sara Spencer my fellow band mates, thank you for being there for me and sharing in this special time. It was a blessing for me to be able to sing with you once more. I am so thankful for the time that God gave me not only as your frie nd, but also the time He gave us to serve and minister in His name. We had some really good tim es together and I am grateful for that time in my life.To Tim Casey, thank you for singing my signature song “I’m Drinking from My Saucer”. You did an outstanding job, and it ministered to my heart.To Gulf State Quartet, thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to be a part of this concert on my behalf. Thank you for your choice of songs, they were appropriate for my situation and it blessed my heart.To the Praise Team of First Baptist Church of Bowling Gree n, thank you for all your hard work and for hand picking songs you knew I would love, and ha d previously played and sang on with you. Singing with you once more on “Victory in Jesus” was an awesome experience for me. The Spirit of the Lord was truly in our midst, and I pray that lives w ere touched and changed at that time. To Bruce Durrance, thank you not only for your friendsh ip throughout my life, but for the great times we had worshipping the Lord together when I was a part of the Praise Team at First Baptist of Bowling Green. A very special thank you to Bro. Scott Tharp and Bro. Stev e McGaughey for the prayers, council, and concern you have shown to me and my family. Thank you for heeding the call of the Lord in your lives, and allowing Him to work through you to lead, g uide, and obey His word as you did the evening of the benefit when I asked you to anoint me with oil, and have elders of the church lay hands on me.James Chapter 5 verses 1315 says, “ Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing psalms. Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.” Thank you my brothers.To everyone who attended the benefit concert, thank you no t only for attending, but for opening your hearts and showing your love and support as we g o through this difficult time. Thank you also to everyone who gave and contributed financially to the l ove offering. What a blessing to see a community of believers come together to help our family. Wor ds cannot express how grateful we are for the love you have shown. Thank you for being obedient to God’s word and loving us. Thank you to the communities of Bowling Green and Fort G reen for the love, and support that has been shown to us since I was released from the hospital Each card, each letter, and phone call is so much appreciated. Thank you to each person who has come by for a visit, or has brought food, your act of kindness is so thoughtful to us all at this time To my friend Paul Wilkerson, thank you so much for brin ging the golf cart by for me to use. It’s nice to be able to get out in the fresh air.If there is anyone I have left out, I apologize, there are just so many good people in this community it is hard to name them all.May God bless each and every one of you for being a bl essing to us.

6A The Herald-Advocate, July 3, 2014 Light One CandleBy Gerald M. CostelloThe Christophers GOD COULD USE YOU TODAY This is a story about a wounded Marine, ready to give up on life, and a visiting celebrity who convinced him otherwise that God still had a job for him to do. Its a perfect Christopher story, sent my way by a college class mate, and its ideal for retelling any time at all. But theres a special reason for telling it somewhere around the Fourth of July. It reminds us all of the values on which this nation was founded, and why they remain worth fighting for even today. The Marine was First Lt. Patrick Cleburne Clebe McClary, who had been gravely wounded in Vietnam in 1968. The wounds from the firefight were life-shattering: McClary lost his left arm and his left eye, and friends would have had trouble recognizing him. Psychological scars emerged, too, in the Japanese hospital to which hed been evacuated. Id given up, McClary said later. I wanted to die, and Id have died right there if it hadnt been for him. Him was Billy Casper, one of his eras best golfers, who won an astonishing 51 PGA tour events in his career, and whose three Major wins would include the 1970 Masters. Touring Japan, he took time to visit some Americans who were wounded in Vietnam. When he approached McClary that day, a doc tor tried to steer him away, but Casper recalls that something led him on. McClary will never forget the words he spoke. He put his arm around me, leaned in, and said. God could use you today. Dont give up, the Marine remembered. Then he thanked me for what I had done for my country and said, God bless you. Caspers words worked their magic. McClary found the resolve to fight back, surviving an incredible 41 surgeries, and was eager to see what God had in store for him. After settling down in his native South Carolina, he went on to a ca reer as a motivational speaker, eventually inspiring audiences in all 50 states. He averaged 200 appearances a year, and always left his listeners with an upbeat message. But McClarys story doesnt end there. Over the years, he realized how much Caspers words had meant to him how they had saved his life in a very real sense. And so last year he asked a neighbor if he knew Casper, and could set up a meeting. The neighbor was Jay Haas, an excellent golfer himself with nine PGA wins (and whose son, Bill, is a young star on the tour today). Sure thing, Haas answered, and the get-together was set up in Augusta, Ga., at the Masters. And so it came to pass, on April 8 of this year. McClary, now 72, and Casper, who was 82, hadnt seen each other since that day in 1968, but the years simply melted away in a sea of tears. I bet we hugged each other and couldnt let go for five min utes, McClary said. People were walking by Im sure thinking, Whats the matter with these two old guys? I had no idea he would remember, but he recalled me and all the details about it like it was yesterday. Nobody paid him to come to the hospital that day. He just came in because he cared. So thats the story: a life saved because God had a plan. Its a story for anytime, but I think it has special value at this time of the year, around the Fourth of July.

Holiday Gas Prices DeclineGasoline prices are beginning to decline with the approach the Independence Day holiday weekend. However, motorists are likely to find the most expensive gasoline prices for Independence Day since 2008. "Market concerns about a sup ply disruption in Iraq are calming," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. "The price of oil slipped last week, so motorists should begin to see some relief at the pump. However, the dis count may only be a nickel, keeping the average price on Independence Day at its highest level since 2008." The highest price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was set on July 4, 2008. The average price for a gallon was $4.06 in Florida, $4.02 in Georgia, and $3.93 in Ten-nessee. The second highest prices were in 2011, when the average price was $3.50 in Florida, $3.46 in Georgia, and $3.36 in Tennessee. "Motorists are likely to pay about 20 cents more for gasoline than they did during last year's holiday weekend," Jenk-ins continued. "Still, current prices are about 10 cents cheaper than they were earlier this year, so AAA doesn't believe the prices will keep people from traveling." U.S. Census Bureau Estimates, Figures For Hardee CountyDEAR DR. ROACH: I am 85 and in fairly good health, but I am in my ninth year of extremely painful post-her petic neuralgia. Instead of di minishing, the pain is increasing. It could be that the gabapentin (600 mg, three times daily) is wearing off. I tried Lyrica, but stopped when it hurt my eyes. The pain can be excruciating, even from the touch of a shirt. A relative suggested cutting the affected nerve. What would you recom mend? F.S. ANSWER: Post-herpetic neuralgia is a syndrome of pain due to inflammation of the nerves after an infection with herpes zoster. The older you are, the more likely you are to get this complication, and the longer the pain tends to last but nine years is much longer than nor mal. Treatment for post-herpetic neuralgia is often with several medications. Gabapentin (Neu rontin) is one, but the effective dose is sometimes quite high, as high as 1,200 mg three times daily. Many people get very fa tigued at that high a dose. A much older medication, nor triptylene, is more effective in some people and may be worth a try. Capsaicin cream provides re lief for many people, although it can cause some burning when first applied. I recommend starting with the regular, not high-po tency, strength. Unfortunately, surgery at any level, from the end of the nerve to the brain has not been consistently effective and carries the risk of permanent nerve damage. A neurologist can advise you on other treatments, including injection of steroids around the spinal cord in extreme cases. Fortunately, this complication can be largely prevented with the use of the shingles vaccine, which most people over 60 should get, even if they have had shingles before. DEAR DR. ROACH: I re cently heard on the news that eating nuts reduces the risk of pancreatic cancer. Is this true? Anon. ANSWER: The data is now pretty solid that all kinds of nuts not only reduce heart disease risk, but also cancer risk, including pancreatic cancer. A recent study in the New England Jour nal of Medicine showed a reduction in all cancers. I wouldn't eat nuts just to reduce pancreatic cancer risk, but it's a good way to improve overall health. Nuts have healthy fats, proteins and micronutrients that may be re sponsible for the lowered risk of disease. Nuts also make you feel full and less likely to eat snacks that are less healthy. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have worn a sterling silver chain and cross for years. Over time, I have noticed that it's gone from shiny to dark. I have never polished it. Right now it is almost black. Is it something in my body chemistry that does this? V.S. ANSWER: The black discoloration is tarnish, an oxidation of the metal. Even sterling silver can tarnish, and some people's body chemistry can indeed make tarnishing more likely. Some people will complain of the dark discoloration if the tarnish rubs off on the skin. More-acidic sweat, and more traces of sulfur, will cause more tarnish. This is very different from nickel allergy, which can cause mild but occasionally more se vere skin reactions. Sterling sil ver does not contain nickel. Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

July 3, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A PHOTO BY JIM KELLY A two-pound hand weight was thrown through and shattered the huge front window at the Hardee County YMCA last Thursday night or early Friday. There were no ot her dam ages. Shaila Rahman, program coordinator; Dalton Rabon, fitness ins tructor; and Ruben Rivas, executive director, look over the boarded window. Wauchula police are still in vestigating the incident. WEIGHTY WINDOW Pages From The Past From The Hardee County HeraldOf Friday, July 1, 1955 Front-Page Headlines: Hardee Pioneer Died Tuesday Wauchula Man Loses Appeal Polk Countians Tour Ona Station Cemetery Working At Olive Branch Dear Editor:My Mother’s Prayer... Last Christmas, when Mom, at age 95, was ill and on her wayto the hospital, she said, "Lord,I'm not ready to go to heaven;I've got too many friends whodon't know Jesus." The Lord gave Mom another six months. To honor my mother's desire for everyone to know Jesus, Isubmit this letter. Mom was born in 1918, which is also the year that Billy Graham wasborn. Back then, America betterunderstood why "our Lord" is inour Constitution and why weplace our hands on the Biblewhen taking an oath. Ardena Tipton was born at home in the rural community ofAlta Vista, Colorado. She mar ried Fred Ullom in 1935. Threeboys (Troy, Virgil, Cecil) andone daughter (Connie) were blessed to have them as parents. One of the amazing things about the Bible is it teaches useveryone has sinned. We haveall chosen to do what is wrong.We knew that God didn't wantus to do it, but we thought it wasgoing to be better than God'sway. Every person has done wrong – except One. This One is thereason we celebrate Christmasand Easter. Some think that iftheir good deeds outweigh theirevil ones, they will go to heaven.If that were possible, Christwould not have had to come anddie on a cruel cross for our sins. At this time of Mom's depart ing, family and many friends aresaying very kind and sincerewords. Mom lived a beautiful life because she was changed bybeing a follower of Christ. To say good-bye to her is a heart-wrenching experience. Butit is also a time of rejoicing andof celebrating. Time on earth is temporary. Heaven and hell are permanent.Each of us have a choice. Mom--and every follower of our Lord--would assure you that He is theway to abundant and eternal life.See John 3:16. Virgil Ullom, D.D.S.

8A The Herald-Advocate, July 3, 2014 Well, wonders never cease! Looking more closely over the 2014 football schedule, one realizes there are a pair of varsity football games set for Thursdays in the upcoming season. The game on Oct. 2 against Sarasota Booker, the first district challenge of the year, will be at Tornado Alley in Bradenton. It wont interfere with the JV home game against Sebring on the same night. And, the last district game, the rivalry against DeSoto, will be at Bulldog Stadium in Arcadia on Oct. 30. Of course, JVs will be done by then. With 22 seniors on this years roster, heres hoping Hardee can repeat its district championship of last season. It was one of six Hardee earned, the others in baseball, softball, girls golf, track and cross country. It would be nice to repeat those and add some more. Speaking of cross country, Maria Munoz continues in the summer marathon series in Highlands County. Last weekend, the 16year-old placed seventh among all the men, women and youth in the event. Her time of 22:08 was just four seconds off the sixth-place finish. Summer Mens League Softball is underway. Mosaic, III Ranches and Gilliard Fill Dirt are the only unbeaten teams. Compe tition is keen. Games are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:45 and 8:15 p.m. Spectators/fans are always welcome. There is no admission fee. Games are at the Rec. Complex fields off Altman Road just north of the high school. The Womens Church League gals also began their season last week, but played so late on Thursday evening, the books were not available. We will catch up on them in the next issue. Summer skills and games for the Hoops Development League are going well. However, there seems to be a bit of a slippage prob lem on the gym floor at Hardee Junior High. It is not due for resealing until the Christmas break. To do it now, and prevent injury to some of these youngsters would cost $1,250. If you want to con tribute, contact Vance Dickey at hardeehoops@gmail.com. Summer swimming continues as well. Beside the lessons, Carl Coleman and staff give each morning at the Rec. Complex pool, there is open swimming in the afternoons, weather permitting. The four dozen or so youth athletes, ages 5 to 18, competing in the summer swim league practice regularly and compete on certain Saturdays. Call Tracy Pate or one of the swimmers for more information. Theres no better investment than in teaching your children to swim and prevent those heart-breaking accidents. One person doing something about that is Kelly Pazzaglia, who has opened ISWIM WAUCHULA, and infant swimming resource for children age six months to six years. She has an indoor pool. Her children, Adam, Boone and Ivy are involved in summer swimming and good examples of the result of early learning. Call her at 863-535-5250 for more information. The youth baseball All-Star teams are busy preparing for going to state. Congratulations to those who advanced from regionals. If you see bake sales and other fund raisers, support our young people in this endeavor. For the older athlete, and not the faint of heart, Battleheart Fit ness gym in the alleyway behind historic City Hall in Wauchula, prepares some of the best. Quite a few made the trip to Daytona Beach last weekend for the Bacon Beatdown crossfit competition. Congratulations to Wendy Carranco, who placed second after completing six workouts in the Womens Master Division. Stop by the gym and talk to Joe Roe or Jesse DeBoom on participation. Information from school and community athletic events is always welcome. Please call me at 773-3255 or e-mail me at sports@theheraldadvocate.com with news for this biweekly column. Please note that the deadlines for weekday or upcoming events is 5 p.m. Thursdays. For events which happen after that time, the sports news is due by noon Mondays in order to have any chance of getting in that weeks paper, and is always on a space available basis. Sports UpdateBy Joan Seaman Inside OutBy Chip Ballard WHY WRITERS WRITE A novelist new on the scene, and even some whove been around the block a time or two, must not only leap hurdles and climb mountains, but also develop very thick skin to become published. Teacher, writer, editor Sol Stein says in his 1999 book, How to Grow a Novel, that even when seemingly insurmountable odds have been mounted, there still is no guarantee because so much of the publishing process is out of the authors control. He might work for years on a novel and finally get a publishing house interested only to miss his big chance because a book similar to his was published elsewhere before his went to press. Or an author might get nods of approval from every editor in a publishing house and then at the last moment get turned down be cause there is something about his book the editor-in-chief or a sales rep doesnt care for. If getting published is that difficult, and success so remote, why should I even take the time to try? is an often asked question. If you are really a writer, you wont have a choice. During the years he spent in prison, French novelist Jean Genet wrote on the only paper he could get, toilet tissue. One day guards found his work, which would have amounted to hundreds of pages, and all his toil met a cruel fate not uncommon to toilet paper. He began again rewriting from memory what was destroyed. Dostoyevsky, during his many years in a prison camp in Siberia, had no writing materials at all. In those days in Russia, former pris oners were not allowed to be published, but after his release he wrote anyway. When a friend of the czar showed him Dostoyevskys man uscript of House of the Dead, the czar was so moved he cried, lifted the ban and let the book be published. Though their circumstances were not as extreme, many other writers, including Joseph Conrad and William Faulkner, have had their own lean years and endured hardships before seeing any signs of success. A Confederacy of Dunces is a thick, funny novel set in New Orleans. Its author, John Kennedy Toole, committed suicide before the book was published. Due to the determination of Tooles mother, Dunces was finally published by the Louisiana State University Press and in 1980 won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction. In his book, The First Five Pages, literary agent Noah Luke man promises, If you can stand the rejection, if you can stubbornly stay with it year after year after year, you will make it into print. I have known many writers who wrote several books some over the course of 3years before they finally got their first book deal. Lukeman says in his final paragraph that the ultimate message of his book is not that one should strive for publication, but should become devoted to the craft of writing for its own sake. A writer should ask himself what he would do if he knew he would never be published. Would he still write? If he is truly writing for the art of it, the answer will be yes. And then, every word will be a victory. I wrote two novels in college and three more during the decade after graduation, none of which was published. Every copy of each manuscript has been destroyed. But the compulsion to write never let me alone, and although I have often wanted to quit, I have been unable to. At this writing, I have in print one novel, one collection of short stories, and two volumes of newspaper columns. Then theres my other book, the first draft of which I wrote one summer in a cabin in the mountains of North Carolina. I have rewrit ten and revised it ruthlessly, but still have not gotten it right. As I begin the downhill journey of the current rewrite, I feel perhaps it is close, but even if it isnt I am having such fun seeing the book grow and mature, and watching the characters take on lives of their own, that every word I write is a victory.

La ciudad de Zolfo Springs rutinariamente los contaminantes en el agua potable de acuerdo con las leyes estatales y federales, las normas y los reglamentos. Salvo que se indique lo contrario, este informe se basa en los resultados de la vigilancia para el perodo del 1 de enero al 31 de diciembre de 2013. Los datos obtenidos antes del 1 de enero de 2013, y presentados en este informe son de las ms recientes pruebas realizadas de conformidad con la legislacin, las normas y reglamentos. En el cuadro que figura a continuacin, puede encontrar trminos desconocidos y abreviaturas. Para que le ayude a entender mejor estos trminos hemos preparado las siguientes definiciones: Nivel mximo del contaminante o MCL: El nivel ms alto de un contaminante que es permitido en el agua potable. MCLs se establezca cerca posible a los MCLG'S usando la mejor tecnologa de tratamiento disponible. Meta del Nivel Mximo de contaminante o MCLG: El nivel de un contaminante en el agua potable por debajo del cual no hay ningn riesgo conocido o esperado a la salud. MNMC permiten contar con un margen de seguridad. Nivel de Accin (AL): La concentracin de un contaminante que, si se supera, desencadena tratamiento u otros requisitos que un sistema de agua debe seguir. Desinfectante residual mximo nivel o MRDL: El nivel ms alto Si est presente, los niveles elevados de plomo pueden causar problemas graves de salud, especialmente para las mujeres embarazadas y nios pequeos. El plomo en el agua potable es principalmente de materiales y componentes asociados con las lneas de servicio y plomera casera. Zolfo Springs es responsable de la provisin de agua potable de alta calidad, pero no puede controlar la variedad de materiales utilizados en componentes de tuberas. Cuando el agua ha sentado por varias horas, puede minimizar el potencial de exposicin al plomo volcando su grifo durante 30 segundos a 2 minutos antes de usar el agua para beber o cocinar. Si usted est pre ocupado por plomo en el agua, puede tener su prueba de agua. Informacin sobre el plomo en agua potable, mtodos de prueba y pasos que puede tomar para minimizar la exposicin est disponible de la lnea directa de agua potable segura o en http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. Las fuentes de agua potable (agua del grifo y agua embotellada) incluyen ros, lagos, arroyos, estanques, embalses, manantiales y pozos. Como el agua viaja sobre la superficie de la tierra o a travs del suelo, disuelve minerales de origen natural y, en algunos casos, material radioactivo y puede recoger sustancias resultantes de la presencia de animales o de la actividad humana. Los contaminantes que pueden estar presentes en las fuentes de agua incluyen: (A) microbios contaminantes, tales como virus y bacterias, que pueden provenir de plantas de tratamiento de aguas residuales, sistemas spticos, las operaciones de ganadera y fauna. (B) contaminantes inorgnicos, tales como sales y metales, que pueden ocurrir naturalmente o como resultado de pluvial, industrial o de alcantarillado, produccin de petrleo y gas, minera y agricultura.

CELEBRATING 95 YEARS PHOTO BY JIM KELLY There is a need for volunteers in Hardee County for Guardian Ad Litem, a powerful voice for Florida’s children in the court system. There are 40 to 50 Hardee child ren in the de pendency court system with only three Hardee volunteers. Polk County has 1, 500 chil dren and 500 GAL volunteers. Highlands County has 170 kids and 25 volunteers, recruiter Dawn Shinskey told the Wauchula Kiwanis Club on Tuesday, June 16, at the Panda Restaurant. A GAL volunteer is an advocate for the child’s best i nterest in the legal system. These are abused and neglected children, ages infant to 19, who need to make sure their basic rights and essential needs do not get overlooked o r ignored by the court system. GAL helps many children from langu ishing in foster care and the child welfare system, making it more likely they can find a safe, permanent home. For infor mation call 863-534-4597.

July 3, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 A happy Fourth of July to each of you as we celebrate themany freedoms afforded us overthe past 238 years. Many have given their all that we may enjoy this day each yearwith all of its festivities andgrandeur. We have been and area nation that has truly beenblessed over and over again.May we honor and respect whatour forefathers have done, andmay we continue to hold ourfreedoms close to each of ourhearts. Let’s all fly our flags with na tional pride, remembering thatthe red stands for hardiness andvalor, while the blue stands forvigilance, perseverance and jus tice and the white represents pu rity and innocence. The stars area symbol of the heavens, and thestripes are reflecting rays of lightemanating from the sun. (Mostof this information I gleanedfrom the Internet, al-though I be lieve the military has a simplersignificance for each detail ofour national emblem.) Whether it’s a trip to the beach, a family reunion, a base ball game, a picnic with fabu lous barbecue and trimmings orjust relaxing at home, enjoyyour Fourth. Then, on Saturday,don’t forget the annual fireworksthat are to be held at PioneerPark at nightfall. New Hope Baptist Church held a fellowship/weddingshower combination on Sundayfor Pastor Trenton Livingstoneand his new bride, Courtney.The young couple receivedmany nice gifts and wishes fortheir new life together. The third mission team from New Hope Baptist Church thatwent to Grenada, Nicaragua, re turned stateside on Monday.Members of this team were Billand Jared Jernigan, Danny andDanielle Weeks, Lyn andKendall Winter and Pam Bond.Many will be eagerly awaitingtheir report of mission work thatwas completed during their timewith Mitch and Judy Marsh andthe local pastors and theirchurch families. Beginning Monday, and through Friday, the 11th, NewHope Baptist Church will holdits Vacation Bible School. It isplanned for preschool throughsixth graders. With the theme“Weird Animals” (where Jesus’love is one of a kind), the chil dren and their leaders will belearning and sharing valuableBible information in fun and in novative ways. Sunday morningworship will include recognitionand graduation time as the stu dents share what they havelearned during the past week. Plans are continuing for the TUPOS youth group at NewHope Baptist Church to partici pate in their annual Student Lifeat the Beach in Daytona laterthis month. Please remember topray for the youth and their lead ers. Pastor Chris Bishop requests that those who plan to go withthe mature senior adults to theCentral Florida Celebration inOrlando in the fall to let him know that you are interested. I often talk to or text my children and grandchildren duringthe week. When I contacted myson, Joseph I, who lives in FortGreen last Thursday, he told methat he was at the emergencyroom at Florida HospitalWauchula. It seems that he andtwo friends were shifting mate rials on his flatbed trailer whenit became unbalanced and therear end landed on long-timefriend Wally Wood’s foot, frac turing it and a toe. No home made soup this time, Wally, butyou do have my condolencesand prayers. Their anniversaries were Monday, but late anniversarywishes go to Binky and RaleneGraham and to Clay and SheenaNewman. May you enjoy manymore blessed years together. I can see the candles on the cakes of some of you have goneto being the number candles asyou are more mature, rather thanburning the wax down to theicing on the cake. Anyway nomatter your age, birthday greet ings go to Patricia Mur-dockWilson, Shawn Durrance, Brit tany Derringer and long-timefriend Betsy Kemp. Cel-ebratingalso have been Micah Hendrick son, Courtney Nicker-son, KellyJo Smith, Kyla Shiver, BeverlyCornelius, Dor-othy Suttles,Donna Pender-grass and GraceDebois.

The Hardee County Rotary Club once again helped nineWorld War II and Korean Warveterans realize their dream ofvisiting their memorials in Wash ington, D.C. The Hardee County Rotary Club has partnered with theHighlands County Rotary Clubsfor three of the last four of theseannual trips to the District of Co lumbia. This Hardee/Highlandstrip is coordinated by Hardee Ro tarian Sue Birge, and this year’sflight was 105 with 20 beingfrom Hardee County. The all-expenses-paid May 24 trip for these veterans began inthe wee hours of the morningwhen the guardians picked uptheir veterans and headed to theSebring Ag Center, where theday began with a warm welcomeand a hearty breakfast providedby Bob Evans and Algero, servedby the Boy Scouts. Boarding two chartered buses and escorted by the HighlandsCounty Fire Department, the ex cited participants headed to theFort Myers airport. Once throughsecurity, they passed through the“Honor Walk” provided by vari ous military representativesholding American Flags andsaluting these veterans. Then an other light breakfast was enjoyedwhile waiting to board. When an Honor Flight plane lands at Reagan National Airportin Washington, D.C., fire en gines are in place to spray awater arch over the jet as a sym bol of welcome to veterans. The veterans and guardians soon discovered the entire termi nal was filled with hundreds ofpeople waiting to greet and thankthem for their service. Militarysongs were being played andflags and signs were waved asveterans were greeted with hand shakes and words of gratitude fortheir service to country. Two tour buses waited to pro vide ground transportation to theKorean Memorial, Lincoln Me morial and Vietnam Wall for thefirst stop. As always, uniformedmilitary personnel honored theseveterans, and some rode on thebuses with them as they touredD.C. Then, the impressive cere mony of the “Changing of theGuard” and the “Laying of theWreath at the Tomb of the Un known Soldiers” at ArlingtonCemetery was experienced withhumble reverence as those inwheelchairs were escorted to aviewing area especially for them. Other stops in the nation's cap ital included the WWII Memo rial and the Marine War Me-morial of Iwo Jima, along withvarious other sites being pointedout along the way. To complete the day in Wash ington, veterans were treated to alarge buffet dinner at Old Coun try Buffet in Mount Vernon be fore heading to the airport for theflight back to Florida. The Honor Flight Network was organized in 2005 with thesole purpose of escorting WWIIveterans to Washington for a dayto see the memorials establishedin their honor. Since that time,over 100,000 veterans have beenflown to D.C. to visit their me morials. This was the first year that the Honor Flight Network allowedKorean veterans to participate, asRotarians have almost exhaustedtheir WWII base of veterans stillmobile enough to make the trip. Since the Hardee County Ro tary Club discovered this pro gram in 2011, it has become its“signature project” and it hastaken 36 veterans from HardeeCounty to Washington, D.C.“Honoring our veterans, no mat ter when they served, has be come a passion for Hardee Ro-tarians,” says Honor Flight Co ordinator Sue Birge. Sponsors step up to the plate for the veterans and Rotarianspay their own expenses, a primeexample of exercising Rotary'smotto of “Service Above Self.” Every veteran has to be es corted by a guardian to take com plete care of him or her. Thisyear the Rotary Club allowed ason or daughter to escort the vet eran parent if available. Upon a late return and a 24hour marathon, veterans allagreed they were not preparedfor the honor they received nor did they expect the fanfare thatwas bestowed upon themthroughout the day. From thefirst walk through the “honorcourt” to the water arch at theairport, the celebration and ap plause was certainly more thanthese warriors ever imagined. The fourth year is now but a memory for this group of veter ans and Hardee County Rotari ans, but Rotarians are alreadydiscussing plans for next year’sHonor Flight. The Hardee County Rotary Club will be looking for moreWWII or Korean veterans toshare in this great experience. Ifyou are interested or know of aveteran who might qualify, con tact Birge at (863) 781-3536 orany Rotarian for an applicationfor Honor Flight 2015.

A Korean veteran quietly observes and reflects at Audie Murphy's grave, WWII' s most decorated soldier. The Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers in Arli ngton National Cemetery is witnessed with silence and reverence by veterans and guardian s. A very warm welcome awaited arriving veterans at ReaganInternational Airport in Washington. Here, Korean vet BillHodge and daughter Amy Lee Richardson are personallygreeted. A large crowd gathers at the airport to welcome and thank veterans with signs and cheers. Floyd Rice III serves as the day’s travel escort for Korean veteran Melvin Kroeger ( mid dle).

The water is chlorinated for disinfection.If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Town Hall at 863-735-0405. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. The Town of Zolfo Springs routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking wate r according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to Dec ember 31, 2013. Data obtained before January 1, 2013, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the laws, rules, and re gulations. In 2013, The Florida Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our sys tem. These assessments were conducted to provide in formation about any potential sources of contamination in the vicinity of our wells. Potential sources of cont amination were identified to include underground petroleum storage tank and a brownfield site. The concern level is considered to be low-moderate. The assess ment results are available on the FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you bett er understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL : The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. M CLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology. Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG : The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.Action Level (AL) : The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow. Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL : The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence tha t addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants. Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG : The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants. "ND" me ans not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis. Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/L) :one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample. Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/L) :one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) : measure of the radioactivity in water. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women a nd young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. Zolfo Springs is responsible for providing high quali ty drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize t he potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your wate r tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safe water/lead.The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive materi al, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.Contaminants that may be present in source water include:(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatme nt plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. (B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban st ormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. (C)Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwa ter runoff, and residential uses. (D)Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems. (E)Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining a ctivities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit t he amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminant s in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants a nd potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromis ed persons such as persons with cancer under going chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system dis orders, some elderly, and infants can be partic ularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). 7:3c ITALIAN CHICKEN PASTA SALAD Summer days are hot, and the nights are long.

Do you know when or if it will return? Jennifer D., via email A: Season two of this darkly humorous series, which stars Jon Hamm and Daniel Radcliffe as television's most unlikely alter egos, premieres Tuesday, Aug. 19, at 10 p.m. ET on Ovation. It will continue on consecutive Tuesdays nights thereafter: Aug. 26, Sept. 2 and Sept. 9. The se ries is based on tales inspired by renowned Russian writer and playwright Mikhail Bulgakov, who also just happens to be my favorite Russian Lit author. (When you get the chance, you must read his seminal novel, "The Master and Margarita." It's in my top-three books of all time, along with "A Prayer for Owen Meany" by John Irving and "Sophie's Choice" by William Sty ron.) "Bulgakov's writing has a special quality and tone that really resonated with all of us on the cast and crew," says Jon Hamm, who plays the older version of the young doctor. "It's so unique that we all were eager to come back for a second season that would further explore the char acter dynamics and pathos of this time and place. It's fortunate that we have found such a supportive and enthusiastic U.S. broadcast partner in Ovation to showcase this one-of-a-kind series." Q: I've heard about a new series called "Gunslingers," but I have no idea what channel it's on, or when it pre mieres. Can you help? Donald R., Bethesda, Md. A: I certainly can help. The American Hero Channel's new original series, "Gunslingers," will debut Sunday, July 20, at 10/9c. The series focuses on the few brave men who protected the innocent from an endless stream of gun-wielding outlaws throughout the 19th century. The thrilling six-part historical docudrama immerses viewers in the true stories behind infa mous icons and legendary con flicts of the Wild West. The series showcases the real, often littleknown adventures of the Wild West's iconic characters (Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Wild Bill Hickok, etc.), and how their fear less pursuit of freedom and profit still resonate in America today. Contributors include: David Milch, the creator of "Dead wood"; Bob Boze Bell, the exec utive editor of "True West Magazine"; and actor Kurt Russell, who portrayed his favorite Western icon, Wyatt Earp, in the classic film "Tombstone." *** Q: I can't find "I Wanna Marry Harry" on Fox any more. Do you know why the se ries about the pretend prince has not been airing? Dave L., via email A: The Fox reality series, which flew 12 American women to a stately home outside of Lon don for a dating-competition show, was pulled from Fox after the fourth episode for dismal rat ings. If you want to see how the show turned out, the whole series is available on Hulu and at Fox.com. Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

CelebrityExtraBy Cindy Elavsky Q: Some kind of animal I'm not sure if it's a deer or a rabbit or what is nibbling away the leaves on many of my plants in the yard and garden. What's the best way to keep these critters out of my yard? A Reader, via email A: Wildlife often can be an annoying (and sometimes dan gerous) presence in your yard, and it can be quite difficult to keep them out. Deer, for exam ple, can hop fences, and rabbits, moles and other mammals can tunnel underneath or squeeze be tween damaged or misaligned boards. Squirrels routinely raid bird feeders, and in some places, bears just meander through, searching for their favorite snack buffet the trash barrel. Here are some tips: coons, keep household trash in tightly covered containers, ide ally inside the garage or a shed. quently and cover with dirt to minimize odors, so that rodents don't start tunneling in. mayed by the smell of soap some homeowners recommend putting bars of soap into old pantyhose, and then tying the hose around tree branches near the areas you want deer to avoid. feet away from trees and walls so it's harder for squirrels to reach them. courage rabbits and make it harder for moles to tunnel di rectly to vegetable roots. Also, intersperse naturally repellent vegetables like onion, garlic and chives throughout the garden, or edge it with flowers like lavender or marigold. building materials several feet away from your house or shed, and make sure they're stacked so that air and light can get through them. This will discourage ro dents and insects from taking up residence. HOME TIP: Remove unnecessary debris, junk or excess lawn ornaments from around your yard. Squirrels and rabbits will have fewer perches and hiding places, so they'll be much more reluctant to hang around. Send your questions or home tips to ask@thisisahammer.com.

Whom can I contact about it with the intent to possibly sell it? Connie, Santa Fe, N.M. A: If you are motivated to sell your ivory necklace, you had better move quickly, since new U.S. laws and restrictions are being considered that would make the sale of ivory unlawful and a felony. This is futile action to save African elephants, as most of the poaching being done is triggered by Chinese demand. Robert Weisblut is founder and president of the International Ivory Society, and he might be able to advise you. Contact is 5001 Old Ocean Blvd., No. 1, Ocean Ridge, FL 33425; and rweisblut@yahoo.com. Q: Recently while helping my mom do some spring cleaning, I found a shoebox contain ing five Avon bottles from the 1940s and '50s. I almost tossed them, but thought I would check with you first. Beth, Chesterfield, Mo. A: Avon collecting reached its peak during the 1970s. Even though older and retired Avon bottles still are collectible, the level of activity has dropped off. You might want to contact the National Association of Avon Collectors, P.O. Box 7006, Kansas City, MO 64113. A sec ond source is a fascinating website, ICollectAvon.net, which features ads, a list of discontinued Avon products and much more. Q: I have a pennant with an image of Dwight Eisenhower and the words "We Still Like Ike." It is ob viously from his re-election campaign in 1956. Is it col lectible? Sarah, Homestead, Fla. A: Your pennant would retail in the $25 to $40 range, accord ing to "Warman's Political Col lectibles: Identification and Price Guide," by Enoch L. Nappen and published by Krause Books. Collecting political memorabilia re mains one of America's favorite hobbies. Q: I have a small collection of Coca-Cola items and would like to find a club so I can swap some of the duplicates that I have. Can you help me? Steve, Ramona, Calif. A: The Coca-Cola Collectors Club is one of the most active. Contact is PMB 609, 4780 Ashford-Dunwoody Road, Suite A, Atlanta, GA 30338; cocacola club.org. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.
