The 2014 hurricane season continues through Nov. 30, withBertha and Cristobal the nextnamed storms which could pos sibly turn into devastating hurri canes in the Atlantic region.Arthur serves as a reminder tobe ready. As the first-named storm, Tropical Storm Arthur first pre sented a concern on Monday of last week, with a Tropical StormWatch and winds creating ripcurrents and the possibility ofisolated tornadoes and water spouts. By Wednesday of last week, Tropical Storm Arthur had max imum sustained winds of 60mph and was located east ofCape Canaveral.

That post had been vacant since February 2012, when for mer fire chief Mike Choate re signed. Afterward, the positionwas never filled. Stillwagon, who was hired as chief of Hardee County Fire-Rescue in October, will now bein charge of the countys Emer gency Management Office. Jill Newman, emergency management director, will nowreport directly to Stillwagon in stead of County Manager LexAlbritton, which she had beendoing since the public-safety po sition was vacated. With the promotion, Stillwagon will now serve as one ofthe countys division directorsand will receive a 7.8 percentpay increase retroactive to earlyMarch, when the deputy firechief resigned and he took overthe additional duties along withhis duties as chief. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Hardee County Commission heard an update regard ing a resolution for a localrecreational-vehicle park theFederal Emergency Manage-ment Agency says has been op erating with several violationssince 1988. Little Charlie Creek RV Park, which is located off of HeardBridge Road and adjacent toPeace River, was found to havenumerous structures locatedwithin the floodplain and notbuilt to the FEMA standards es tablished just a few months be fore Hardee County granted thepark a Special Exception permitto operate. A Community Assistance Visit conducted by FEMA inFebruary of this year revealedthe alleged violations. The visit found the county had issued hundreds of permitsto locate mobile homes andother buildings on the propertywhile inadvertently failing to en force the FEMA FloodplainManagement Plan, which coversstructures built in a floodplain orfloodway. Commissioners had author ized county Planning DirectorKevin Denny to hire an engi neering firm to see if the flood way designation line can bemoved, as it currently coversmore than half the park. Denny said after the engi neers looked at the park he feelsthe floodway line can be moved so that most of the park is nolonger in it. It will, however, re main in the floodplain and manystructures in the park may stillbe required to be elevated andanchored down. Currently, 100 percent of the park is shown to be in the flood plain and 70 percent of the parkis designated as in the floodway,Denny said. Structures are allowed to be placed in these areas, providedthey are built up above the baseflood level and do not impedethe movement of water or raisethe base flood level in the flood way. A floodway is defined as where the water would be flow ing with current during highwater levels, while a floodplain is where water would pool if theadjacent Peace River overflowsits banks. Owner Wayne Parrish said the park, which has more than300 units, was designed and per mitted according to countybuilding officials instructionsdating back to 1989, and thathundreds of building permitshave been issued since then. He said many of his winter residents are very concernedover the pending issue and somepeople already are not makingreservations for later this year. Parrish said he feels he is the only park in the county beingsingled out. He said he knows ofat least two other parks in thecounty also built in the flood plain and floodway. He said having to raise many of the trailers would create a realproblem for the park and its res idents. Denny said FEMA conducted a similar Community Assis tance Visit in 2005 and did notfind or note any violations atLittle Charlie Creek, but hecould not say for sure if theagency looked at the park then. Once FEMA found the viola tions, it required the county toproduce a corrective action planas to how it will address theproblems and submit it to thestate. Denny said the plan would address specific problems in thepark, such as having to elevateSee FEMA 2A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate The county has fired back at a landowner who is seeking acourt order overturning a recentzoning decision to allow expan sion at the industrial park. Representing the Hardee County Commission and the In dustrial Development Author-ity, attorney Ken Evers has fileda motion in Circuit Court askingthe judge to gut a large portionof John Terrells petition. Terrell, through a petition filed on June 14 by Cape Corallawyer Ralf Brookes, wants thecourt to quash and reverse theCounty Commissions May 15approval of a rezoning requestmade by the IDA. The IDA had applied to re zone 104 acres from Farm Resi dential and Multiple Fam-ilyResidential to Commercial/ In dustrial Business Center. Theland would then be used to ex pand the existing Hardee Com merce Park on State Road 62 ashort distance west of U.S. 17. The land in question also ad joins Terrells property. Despite a recommendation from its Planning & ZoningBoard to deny the IDAs appli cation, the County Commissionapproved the zoning change. Evers is now petitioning the court to throw out an expert re port and a transcript Brookesfiled along with his court appeal. In his Motion to Strike Peti tioners Expert Report and Tran script, Evers alleges Brookeshas attempted to incorporateinto the record a report of (an)expert that was not made a partof the record of the proceedingbefore the County Commis sion. He goes on to note the report from certified planner MaxForgey was e-mailed to thecounty at 3:43 p.m. on the day ofthe second reading of the pro posed zoning ordinance. It wasuntimely filed, he said, andwas not included in the commis sioners meeting packets. The chairman of the Board of County Commissioners ex-pressly stated the report was notbeing considered as part of therecord, Evers said in his mo tion. Moreover, he added, theexpert was not present at themeeting to testify or be cross-ex amined. It was a matter of too little, too late for consideration as partof the record, Evers declared innoting the report cannot beconsidered by this Court. Further, he alleged, the peti tioner failed to include a copy ofthe countys staff report on theissue. Failure to do so is an at tempt to present something lessthan the whole record for thisCourts consideration.See IDA PARK 2A

Hardee Property Appraiser Kathy Crawford last week said the new county tax roll is down 3.5 percent over last year. The new taxroll is $1.447 billion, down $53 million from last years $1.5 billiontax roll. The new tangible property tax roll is $719 million, down $42 million from last years roll of $761 million. The real property taxroll is $722 million, down $11 million from $733 million last year. The lower tangible roll is due mainly to depreciation on equip ment in power plants, etc. The lower real property roll is due to citrusgrove values declining by $17 million, offset by some increases inresidential and pasture land values. Hardee County Commission budget workshops being Mon day, July 14. Crawford said Polk Countys new tax roll is up 5 percentwhile DeSoto Countys new roll is down 3 percent. The Hardee Industrial Development Authority (IDA) has re ported creating 133 direct permanent jobs including the CommercePark and the Rapid Systems broadband project. Added to this are48 indirect and induced jobs. The IDA reports the total economic output is $161.2 million, with the new employees earning $37.9 million. Taxable value in2011 increased $6.9 million. The IDA reports additional tax revenue for local taxing districts was $493,365, rental income generated was $238,785, land sales in come generated was $793,231, and there is one lot available in the23-lot Commerce Park. The proposed 104-acre extension will pro vide 20 additional lots. IDA reports its activity accounts for 46 percent of the countys total increase in employment. Johnny Terrell has filed a lawsuit to stop the proposed expan sion of the Commerce Park and locate the expansion elsewhere. The state attorneys office has an ongoing investigat ion into the $7.25 million spent on the Lifesync/Continuum Labs project. In economic development projects some are successful and some are not. The goal should be to fund projects that have a highlikelihood of success. Hardee County is not growing much, losing about 200 r esidents over the past couple of years, and the countys citrus crop is declin ing due to greening and other diseases. The markets for our beef cattle, dairy cattle and vegetable crops has been outstanding and growing in recent years. Economic development director Bill Lambert is trying very hard to bring new jobs to Hardee County to complement our agri cultural base. He knows mining jobs will not last forever and wantsgood jobs so young people in Hardee can have an option to stay hereand raise families. As county commissioners he and Walter Olliff Jr.worked hard to generate more phosphate dollars earmarked for eco nomic development in the county. pleted. Parrish said at the initial meeting in April the park hasonly flooded one time in 24years, during the 2004 hurri canes, and no residences wereflooded. Parrish said the streets are de signed to collect the water, andit then flows through a drainagesystem to a retention area. some trailers above the flood plain elevation and anything onthe ground, such as sheds orpropane tanks, must be anchoredto the ground. Challenging the floodway lines and having them movedwill require FEMAs review andapproval before the maps can bechanged.

The amounts allegedly in volved in the original bust stem ming from the search warrantare staggering. Kirkland and Mendez each were charged with conspiracy topossess with intent to distribute500 grams or more of metham phetamine in a criminal com plaint filed with the U.S. DistrictCourt for the Middle District ofFlorida in Tampa. It generally takes dealing in 14 grams of methamphetamineto provoke the more-serioustrafficking charge. Trafficking in28 grams or more often sparksfederal charges. In this instance, Kirkland was accused of selling one fullpound of the narcotic to a confi dential source for $17,000. Apound equals about 453 grams. Further, Kirkland allegedly told investigators that he soldthree pounds or more of the nar cotic per month. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Officesaid details of this massive traf ficking operation unraveled overa period of time. He noted that several months ago, Sheriff Arnold Lanier as signed a Hardee County Sher iffs Office detective over to theDEA HIDTA Task Force, whichcovers a 16-county area, includ ing Hardee. It allows our local Drug Task Force to work with the DEA andfor each of us to contribute tothe other, Dey explained. Ob viously, he added, the federalgovernment has a bigger warchest to fight against drugs thanwe do. Dey said that the DEA was working on an arrest in a countysouth of Hardee, and during in terviews there information im plicating Kirkland in large drugssales surfaced. In working on that tip, the DEA Task Force was able tomonitor an alleged March 25meeting between a confidentialsource and Kirkland at Kirk-lands residence at 159 GoldenOaks Road. In it, Kirkland allegedly agreed to sell one pound of methamphetamine for $17,000,but said he could not do so untila couple days later, March 27. That alleged transaction was monitored by the DEA TaskForce and Hardee County sher iffs detectives, Dey said. Once inside Kirklands home, the confidential source wasgiven a brown paper bag. Hethen returned to the operationsstaging area, where officersfound the bag held a one-gallonZiploc-style plastic bag with onepound of meth. Officers then proceeded to Kirklands residence, a U.S.District Court complaint de-scribed. Kirkland, it said, cameout his front door to meet them,carrying a pair of binoculars. Their locally obtained search warrant reportedly revealedmethamphetamine and mari juana in items belonging toKirklands girlfriend, Kessler,along with pills, foil and a roachclip. Another 5-1/2 ounces of meth allegedly was found in Kirk-lands closet, the DEA charged. Kirkland stated he has a long history of selling methampheta mine, the DEA Task Force said,adding, He stated in the pasteight to 12 months, he hassteadily sold three pounds ormore per month. Kirkland allegedly told agents he has sold at least 30 poundsover that same period of time. He also implicated three oth ers are selling methampheta mine for him, the federalcomplaint alleges. The source of his supply was named as Jerry Mendez, of 5290Epps Ave. Kirkland saidMendez charges him $1,062 perounce, and that he in turn sellsthe drug for $1,150 per ounce,according to the federal com plaint. Kirkland placed a monitored call to Mendez and arranged an other purchase, the DEA al leged. Agents went to Mendez home, using a search warrantobtained by the Hardee CountySheriffs Office to seize onepound of methamphetaminefound in a freezer in the homeskitchen. Mendez, too, was arrested.Kirkland and Mendez will ap pear in U.S. District Court.METH BUSTContinued From 1A Evers then stated the tran script of the zoning proceedingsincluded with Terrells petitionis only a partial one, and hequestioned its accuracy as it wastranscribed via YouTube. Healso alleged it excluded an es sential portion of the proceedingwhere ex-parte disclosures weremade. This appears to be an inten tional and blatant attempt by pe titioner to make a due-processviolation claim
to say this istroubling is an understatement,Evers asserted. As the respondents in this appeal to the Circuit Court, thecounty is filing its own copy ofthe staff report and certifiedtranscripts from the April 24 andMay 15 public hearings, Everssaid in his motion to strike. He concludes by asking the court to toss the petitioners ex pert report and transcript, andgrant any other relief the Courtdeems just and appropriateunder the circumstances. The petitioners expert, Forgey, contended in his reportthat the industrial park expan sion failed to meet rezoning re quirements, has the potential todegrade one or more levels ofservice, and is incompatiblewith surrounding land uses. The property the IDA wishes to use to expand its CommercePark is close to residences andschools, Terrells original ap-peal to the Circuit Court noted. Forgey went on to assert a total 233 acres of industrial usescannot be supported by one two-lane road with one point ofingress and egress to SR 62, it self a two-lane road; that im pacts to the community andschools are many noise, odor,dust, glare, toxic gas, toxicspills, water pollution, illegaldumping and loss of propertyvalues; and that the health andsafety of the community and itsschool children are imperiled.

A Category 1 hurricane, it quickly picked up speed and in tensity. By Thursday, the eve ofJuly Fourth, the now Cate-gory2 hurricane forced evacuation ofthe islands of the Outer Banks,with 110-mph winds and heavyrain downing trees and delugingthe islands before moving far ther up the East Coast. Before it blew itself out, the storm-turned-hurricane hadcaused cancelation of ballgamesand other July Fourth events. Hardee County enjoyed the weekend free from the hurricanethreat, but the area faced scat tered showers and thunder storms, and associated funnelclouds, afternoon and eveninggusty winds, dangerous light ning and occasional heavydownpours. Dangers of heat stroke also intensified, alongwith warnings that children andelderly adults should not be leftin vehicles, even for a few mo ments. Residents were warned to stay out of the direct sun during theheat of the day (10 a.m. to 2p.m.) and advised to drinkplenty of water and enjoy amovie in an air-conditioned the ater. Lt. Don MacGregor of Hardee County Fire-Rescue has pro vided additional information onhow to remain safe during light ning episodes, noting Flor-ida isdesignated the lightning capitalof North America with its aver age of 1.4 million cloud-toground lightning strikes eachyear sometimes causing death orinjury. The safest location is a large enclosed building or house.Being outside at the beach,fishing, golfing or at open-airsports events could bedeadly. People are urged to stayaway from metal objects and toavoid open fields or areas, hill tops or under trees and to comein off the water. Its best to stay away from tall objects, which can draw thelightning, and take cover as soonas there is any indication of highwinds, dark clouds, distant thun der or rain, which could bringlightning strikes. While the summer thunder storm pattern may continue forweeks, residents are reminded tokeep an eye on the news for newtropical storms which could be come powerful hurricanes.Folks are reminded of the dev astating Hurricane Andrewwhich hit South Flor-ida in1992. More may remember thelocal effects of hurricanesCharley, Frances and Jeanne in2004 and Wilma in 2005. When is Florida due to have another hurricane as bad asthese? While no one knows for sure, residents are urged to remainalert, keep their hurricane sup plies on hand, and know whenand where to take action to evac uate or to put their family hur ricane or disaster plan intoaction.
July 10, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A Wauchula man found guilty of deliberately running over an other man in a bar parking lot,and killing him, has been sen tenced to 10 years in FloridaState Prison. Carl William Wilson Lee, 41, of 714 Kohala Ave., had beencharged with the Jan. 11, 2013,death of Kelvin Lee Morris, 43,of Winter Haven, following anargument at the Country ClubLiquor Lounge on U.S. 17 justnorth of Bowling Green. The Polk County Sheriffs Of fice investigated the incident,turning its findings over to theState Attorneys Office, whichlater issued a warrant for Leesarrest. He was booked into theHardee County Jail on that war rant on March 22, 2013, and wastransferred to Polk County twodays later. At his March trial in Polk Cir cuit Court, jurors were told Leeand Morris had been arguing atabout 2 a.m. in the bars parkinglot when Lee got into his truck,revved the engine and headedtoward Morris, acceleratingalong the way. Morris was armed with a handgun and Lee had wielded abaseball bat, investigators said. But the truck ended the evenings dispute. The victims handprint and fingerprint smears were foundon top of the vehicle hood, andstreaming toward the grill as thevictim went under the vehicle,the Polk Sheriffs Office said. Morris died at the scene.An autopsy conducted at the Medical Examiners Office inLakeland concluded the cause ofdeath was blunt force trauma,Polk authorities said. Their in vestigation into the events sur rounding the death took abouttwo months to result in thehomicide charge which ulti mately put Lee in prison. Man Sentenced In Bar Killing Lee The project would then go be fore the state Department ofEconomic Opportunity (DEO)to ensure the developmentwould not have any negative ef fect on state resources, such aswater and existing roads. If the land-use change is granted and the DEO determinesthe proposal does not have anyadverse effects, developerswould then have to go throughthe Planned Unit Development(PUD) permitting process,which is more thorough and sitespecific than a land-use change. During the PUD hearings be fore the Planning & ZoningBoard and the County Com-mis sion, developers would presentdetailed plotting of the propertyto distinguish where roads,houses, commercial and light in dustrial spaces would be lo cated. Half of the proposed homes would be reserved for residents55 and over. The other homesare expected to produce 287-387school-age children every year ifbuilt to capacity. The development could also have up to 218 recreational-ve hicle spaces, 20,000 square feet of office space, 40,000 squarefeet of retail and 300,000 squarefeet of light industrial uses.

Robarts Family FUNERAL HOME WAUCHULAWAUCHULA In Loving Memory I always though the Dark Ages was when nobody could afford to pay their light bill. Darling, should you one day decide to return to me, may I re mind you it is by appointment only. Should man have existed in the days of dinosaurs and their brothers, I will assure you there would have been a shortage ofgames wardens. Like they say, history does repeat itself. For instance, first came the Stone Age and now we have the Stoned Age. Again, the law arrested my Uncle Burp for DUI, you know, for driving under the influence. But when allowed to make the one callfrom jail, rather than to call a family member to get him out of jail,instead he called his Congressman. Back when I was still out there on the dating scene, I told Dumpling after I caught her flirting with this so-called ladies manthat I didnt play second fiddle with nobody. Thats when she said, Tee hee! Tee hee! Youre certainly not playing second fiddle there,because youre not even in the band. Tee hee! Tee hee! Well, Ive done it again. Last week I wrote two moving songs. Two of my neighbors said since they heard me singing them thatthey are all packed up and ready to go. I ask you, have you got the guts to eat a good mess of hog chit terlings? My cousin, the one we call Easy, recently had himself an almost fatal heart attack right there in the doctors examination room whenthe doctor told him it was about time he went out and got himself ajob so he could pay some of his bills, including some of what heowed him over the years. To show his deep appreciation for the doc tor saving his life right then and there, Easy reported him to ElderlyAbuse for upsetting him, a 78-year-old patient who had never helda job in his life. The doctor had the nerve to even suggest that forthis late date for him to go find himself a job, without doubt thiscaused him to suffer a near fatal heart attack. Wouldnt one assume that a lady is having problems when she hires a glass and mirror company to give her mirror a facelift?Truman A. Thomas, 77, is an Avon Park resident with many friendsand associates in Hardee County. He is the father of Sherry Whiteof Wauchula, and is a retired salesman and former ra dio disc jockey whose morning show topped the Nielsen Ratings.

The bass weighed 22 pounds, 4 ounces and was caught in 1932 in L ake Montgomery, GA., by George Perry on a Creek Chub wooden plug. Roe and Sean Keleher own the out fit ting business. RECORD BASS REPLICA A Minnesota native has moved south to offer top-notchcare to men and women in ruralcommunities. Dr. Debra Doud will be in the Wauchula office of the Heart land Cardiology Group on Mon day and Thursday mornings,hoping to increase her presencelocally as more patients seekcare at her office at 320 S. SixthAve., Wauchula, the northern-most unit of the beige officebuilding beside the Stop n Shopon the intersection of Bay Streetand U.S. 17 South. She is board-certified dually in internal medicine and cardiol ogy and offers a full gamut ofpreventive screening and treat ment of on-going heart condi tions, perhaps more aware ofabdominal aorta and similarproblems because of the famil iarity with internal medicine. Doud was born in rural Min nesota, where she completed herearly education. She is a gradu ate of the University ofRochester Medical School. Shecompleted her internship and athree-year residency in internalmedicine at Loyola Universityin Chicago and then also did athree year resident fellowshipin cardiology at the same univer sity, being a Chief Fellow in thefinal year of that residency. She has been in practice since 1990, practicing in the greaterChicago area initially and mov ing south about eight years agoto be able to practice in a small-town population that she hadknown. An interventional cardiolo gist, Dr. Doud is able to providea variety of expert care and eval uation. Many of her patientscome by referral from their gen eral practitioner, their familydoctor. She considers patient education one of her primary du ties. Many do not know thesymptoms of a pending heart at tack are very different for menandwomen.Men mayexperiencechest painor discom fort, aspersistentshortness of breath out of pro portion to the amount of activityor exertion. Women, on the other hand, may not have the usual chestpain, but may have extreme dis comfort in the arm, jaw, shoul der and other areas. They mayexperience unusual fatigueand/or shortness of breath onanything that requires more oxy gen than usual, particularlywhen it comes on with exertionand goes away with rest. Sometimes someone about to have a heart attack may notshow any symptoms. A preven tive evaluation is now coveredby most insurances, and is par ticularly important in anyonewho has a major degree of risk,such as a family history ofstroke or heart disease, high cho lesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure and similar illnesses. An electrocardiogram (EKG) may reveal an abnormal heart rhythm, theneed for apacemaker orone which isnot workingwell. Echo-cardiograms,stress tests and ultrasounds of the carotidarteries in the neck may showblockage which could lead to astroke. Further evaluation couldtreat palpitations, dizzyepisodes, and other problemswhich may occur. Doud is proud of belonging to the Heartland CardiologyGroup, which began in High-lands County 27 years ago andwhich also includes Sebring car diologists Dr. C. B. Patel and Dr.Deo P. Sankar. All three areboard certified in cardiovasculardisease and echocardiographyused in echo and nuclear labs.. They are on staff at all four Heartland Hospitals, LakePlacid, Wauchula, HighlandsRegional and Florida Hospital-Sebring. Angiograms, stents andpacemakers and other cardiacprocedures can be done in theaccredited cardiac labs at eitherHighlands Regional or FloridaHospital. Pacemaker Checks, echocar diograms and electrocardio grams can be done in theWauchula office and there willbe an electrophysiologist thatcomes at least monthly asneeded.

CostelloThe Christophers KEVIN DURANT MVP Almost no one was surprised in May when Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder was designated the Most Valuable Player in the National Basketball Association. He had led the league in scoring by a comfortable margin, and even his most likely competi tors argued for his selection. The surprise came a couple of days later, when he gave his acceptance speech. It was a masterpiece of raw emotion, a triumph that matched the original award. If you havent seen it already on your home com puter, catch it as soon as you can. Its well worth watching. Durant began, refreshingly enough, by thanking God for sav ing my life. Its a little unusual to hear Gods name at all in a talk of this sort, and Durant made it a point to open his acceptance that way. Next he spoke of his upbringing near Washington, D.C., and his plan to stay home and become a coach but his own career was already on the move. Along the way Ive had so much help, he said. People be lieved in me when I didnt do well, when I didnt believe in myself. I fell so many times but I got back up. And Im still standing. Next he turned to his teammates, all of whom were present. Du rant wept real tears unapologetically as he thanked them, one by one: Late-night calls after tough games...When I needed an extra push, you were there... Words cant explain how I feel about you. For Russell Westbrook, a star in his own right, he saved a special mention. You would run through a wall for me, he said. You set the tone. Nor did he forget the Oklahoma City fans. That was fitting, since the city has welcomed the franchise to an extraordinary degree. As part of its official greeting, it even made sure that team members saw some of the local sights, including Bricktown, the now-restored factory district full of parks and restaurants, and the memorial at the site of the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, where 168 Oklahomans lost their lives. Finally the tears flowed freely as Durant paid tribute to his mom, who was also there for the presentation. In the emotional high light of an emotional speech, he chose his words carefully: I dont know how you did what you did. You were a single parent with two boys by the time you were 21. We moved from one apartment to another by ourselves. One of my best memories I have is when we moved into our first apartment. No bed, no furniture ... We all sat in the living room, on the floor, and just hugged each other. We thought we had made it. When you didnt eat, you made sure we ate. You went to sleep hungry. You sacrificed for us. Youre the real MVP. Durant closed as he began, by thanking God again through his tears. He is the beginning and the end, the Alpha and Omega, he said. The final phrase of the speech, directed to God, was simple in deed: Thank you for saving my life. He didnt explain it, nor did he have to. The eloquence of his words saw to that.

CITY OF WAUCHULA s/Richard K. Nadaskay, Jr. Mayor ATTEST: s/Holly Smith City Clerk 7:10c The United States surpassed Saudi Arabia and Russia to be come the world's biggest oil pro ducer this year. According to a report from Bank of America Corp., the U.S. is projected to remain the top producer of 2014 because do mestic output is forecast to in crease and production growth outside the U.S. has been lower than anticipated. "The shale boom in Texas and North Dakota continues to spur domestic production growth," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. "Not only does supply growth have a positive effect on the economy, but can help reduce the price at the pump. Increasing domestic production puts a cap on oil prices, which keeps gas prices affordable. "Domestic oil prices remain susceptible to geopolitical con flict, which in turn influences gas prices. Fortunately, the price of oil is trending down as fears of a supply disruption in Iraq are dissipating and news that Libya will soon resume shipping oil at full capacity." The price for a barrel of oil slipped $1.68 last week, closing at $104.06 on the NYMEX on Friday. The national average price for a gallon of gasoline is two cents cheaper than last week. The average price is three cents cheaper in Florida and Tennessee, and four cents cheaper in Georgia compared to last week. "Lower oil prices means gaso line should continue drifting down this week," continued Jenkins. "However, prices typi cally become volatile in the midto late summer months as we move into hurricane season. Motorists will likely see prices spike if a hurricane moves into the Gulf of Mexico." U.S The Top Oil Producer DOVE CLUB OPENS JULY 18 To me, the best part about hunting is not harvesting game but spending quality time outdoors with friends and family. One of the best ways to do that is through dove hunting, which is part of the reason why great dove hunts are in such high demand but often difficult to find. Because of this, the FWC created its Special-Opportunity Dove Club program. It offers hunters the chance of experiencing excep tional dove hunting on the states best public dove fields. The time to apply begins next week. Dove Club permits enable one adult and one youth 15 or younger to hunt all scheduled dates for the dove field of their choice. Permits cost $150 and enable both hunters to take a daily bag limit of birds. All hunts take place on Saturdays from noon until sunset. Scheduled hunt dates and number of hunts vary between fields. Last year, 1,013 birds were harvested from six fields. This com ing season, there will be the same six special-opportunity dove fields scattered throughout the state from which to choose. Frog Pond North Public Small-Game Hunting Area in MiamiDade County was again the top producer last year, with 453 birds taken. This year, the field will be expanded from 50 to 75 acres. Koon Farm dove field in Lafayette County last year had 114 birds harvested off its 40 acres. There will be 13 Dove Club permits available to hunt next season. The dove field on Hilochee Wildlife Management Area in Lake County has 15 Dove Club permits available to hunt its 80 acres. Hunters there last season took 59 doves. Hunters harvested 80 birds from Allapattah Flats in Martin County, east of Lake Okeechobee. Thirteen Dove Club permits are available for the 100-acre field. North Newberry, in Alachua County, has 15 Dove Club permits on its 40 acres. That field produced 87 birds last year. The remaining property, Caravelle Ranch in Putnam County, has three fields that total about 125 acres with 30 Dove Club permits available. Last season, 220 doves were harvested there from just the six-day hunt. Dove Club permits will be issued by random drawing during Phase I. That application period runs from 10 a.m. on Friday, July 18, through Monday, July 28. After obtaining the correct application worksheet by going to MyFWC.com/License and clicking on Limited Entry/Quota Hunts, you can apply for these season passes by filling out a single worksheet with up to five dove field choices and turning it in at any county tax collectors office, license agent or by applying on line at License.MyFWC.com. During Phase I, hunters may be awarded a permit for only one dove field. You may check the drawing results after 10 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 1, by logging in to your customer account at License.My-FWC.com. Also, any applicant who provides an e-mail address will be notified by the FWC if drawn. Those who are successful in getting drawn must pick up and pay for the Dove Club permit at any of the same places mentioned above or online by Monday, Aug. 11. So if youd like to join the FWCs Dove Club, you need to try to do so in July. Remember to introduce someone new to hunting when you can. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you in the woods! Tony Young is the media relations coordinator for the FWCs Division of Hunting and Game Management. You can reach him with questions about hunting at Tony.Young@MyFWC.com. Outta The WoodsBy Tony YoungFlorida Fish & Wildlife Commission
B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, July 10, 2014 PAGE ONE Fruitand candy-flavored cig arettes were banned in 2009 under the Family Smoking Prevention & Tobacco Control Act. However, menthol cigarettes, flavored cigars and cigarillos, and smokeless products were not included. The Hardee County Com-mission passed a resolution in 2012 urging retailers to restrict the sale and marketing of flavored tobacco products. Later that same year, the municipalities of Bowling Green, Wau-chula and Zolfo Springs adopted resolu tions as well. There now are increasingly more non-cigarette products available in Hardee County, which youth are using. Tobacco products in flavors like kiwi-strawberry, chocolate and sour apple are available across the state despite over whelming evidence that these deadly products appeal to kids and lead to a lifetime of tobacco addiction. Summertime brings back memories of visits to the corner store for a sweet candy treat, said Brenda Nowak, tobacco prevention educator. Big To bacco companies know most of us have a sweet tooth, so they have created a variety of candyflavored tobacco products to lure us into their nicotine trap. Many children and teens mistakenly believe these products are less harmful than their nonflavored counterparts. Once youth start using one to bacco product, they are more likely to experiment with others. More Than Just Cigarettes The flavoring and lower cost of these non-cigarette products make them especially appealing to youth. All of these tobacco products cause cancer, heart disease and other smoking-related diseases. Smokeless tobacco includes chew, dip, snus and a host of emerging products. Compared to cigarettes, these products can contain more nicotine. Tra-di tional smokeless products, like chew and dip, contain 28 cancercausing agents. Users of these products have an 80 percent higher risk of oral cancers and a 60 percent higher risk of pancreatic and esophageal cancer. Sweet Deception With cigarette smoking rates on the decline, the tobacco in dustry has created products and strategies that attract a new generation of tobacco users. This array of flavored tobacco products that appeal to youth present new challenges and con cerns in the fight against tobacco use. These products help create a new generation of lifelong nicotine addicts and of lifethreatening diseases. Learn more about the dangers of candy-flavored tobacco and how you can help protect youth from this sweet deception. Visit tobaccofreeflorida.com and click on current issues.

TRIVIA TESTBy Fifi Rodriguez Wauchula NewsBy Jan Wilkins 773-0618 When I was returning from Sunday evening worship at church, our local electric utility personnel were engaged in restoring power to our Riverview Heights subdivision. It took them until the early morn ing hours to get us up and run ning again. I am so glad that we have workers who will work no matter the time or conditions. Thanks go to all who worked so diligently. Please keep Freda Robinson in prayer as she received word last week that a cousin and his wife had gone to be with the Lord. Freda, please know we will not forget that you stand in the need of our intercessory prayers and that you have them. Last Sunday evening, the third mission team that went to Granada, Nicaragua, gave their report to the members of New Hope Baptist Church. Those who served on this team were Lyn and Kendall Winter, Pam Bond, Danny and Danielle Weeks, and Bill and Jared Jernigan. Working with the locals from nearby churches and their pastors, as well as Mitch and Judy Marsh, they were able to meet some of the communitys physical needs as well as sharing with young children and their families about the love of Christ through their ministry there. TUPOS, the youth group from New Hope Baptist Church, will be traveling to youth camp (Stu dent Life at the Beach) next week at Daytona Beach. They and their leaders are looking for ward to a great time there. Happy birthday to Beth Radford, Katie Taylor, Debbie Floyd and Kaley Sager. May all your birthday wishes come true for you. Anniversary wishes for this week go to Jeff and Kim Han shaw, and to Sharon and Paul Adams hopes are that you have a happy 25th anniversary. May God richly bless both couples.

July 10, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B This week in history, as re searched from the archivalpages of The Florida Ad-vo cate, the Hardee County Her ald and The Herald-Ad-vocate. . 75 YEARS AGO John C.

City councilmen acted wisely last week, we believe, in sweet ening City SuperintendentGeorge Burris salary in the faceof an attractive offer fromLawrenceburg, Ind. The councilraised Burris from $10,400 ayear to $12,000. Lawrenceburghad offered $13,000 a year plusa monthly expense account of$150. 25 YEARS AGO The State Department of Cor rections announced last Thurs day it will put one of six majorprisons in Hardee County thisyear.

In onecase, an automatic weaponequipped with a silencer wasconfiscated during the executionof a search warrant, Capt. JeffMaddox said. The Wauchula Council on Monday began its budgetprocess for the fiscal year 1989-90 by accepting for considera tion recommendations of acommittee of Chairman MikeMaddox, Warren May, superin tendent of public works, MayorMarshall Nuccio, Clerk MavisBest and Acting Police ChiefWayne Bass. 10 YEARS AGO A 17-year-old mentally-hand icapped girl who disappearedfrom a Lakeland mall Mondaywhile shopping with her mother causing an Amber Alert to beissued was found in BowlingGreen on Tuesday. The first meeting of the de pendent board to recommendphosphate severance tax spend ing in the county was heldThursday. Hardee Countys Public Safety Department recentlyhosted a regional Domestic Se curity Task Force exercise.

8B The Herald-Advocate, July 10, 2014 The Classifieds Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greeting from Fort Green!The musical program pre sented by Oak Grove BaptistChurch at Pioneer Park was verygood. I would wager that noneof the younger generation knowsor has ever heard the songs ofthe different branches of the mil itary. Everyone needs to bemore patriotic and learn these,and pay attention to the thingsthat are going on in our nation.Everyone needs to be sure andvote in the elections as changedoes start at the grassroots. The fireworks were good and I am thankful that concernedbusinesses do this every year.We had just gotten out of thepark and there was a gully-buster of a rain for about fiveminutes. It was great it held offso everyone could enjoy theshow. Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to the Byron Allison fam ily. Byron made his finaljourney to his new home on theFourth, which was also his andRitas 30th wedding anniver sary. Byron played his guitarwhen able to attend church atFort Green. You cant keep a good man down, so the saying goes. GaryOden is one of those goodmen. He was in the hospitaland left the hospital and got intohis daughters van, along withother family, and went to Ala bama to see his grandson marry.They all had a good time. Kensaid he and Kitty drove their ve hicle so they could sightseewhen they saw something of in terest. There is bad bronchitis going around in our neighborhood.Faye Davis was sick along withher mother, Edith Bassett. At tendance was down at churchlast Sunday, which is normal fora holiday weekend, but AliceFaye Moye, Lee Chancey,Makayla Chancey and otherswere sick. Mary Lois Crawley was scheduled for surgery on Mon day in the Lakeland hospital.She said the doctor told her itwould be a three-day hospitalstay and then she could do noth ing for four weeks. That soundslike Leonard is going to be busyfor a month. Please pray for allour sick. The Allison twins came through their eye surgery ingood shape. Children bounceback quickly. We received an inch of rain at our home last Saturday and wewere beginning to need some.When Wauchula has been re ceiving, we would not even geta sprinkle. Kaylee Hogenauer went with Lindsay Barwick to the lockoutat First Christian Church lastFriday night. Besides other ac tivities, First Christian rented thepublic pool for two hours frommidnight to 2 a.m. That was a lotof fun and if all the youth werelike Kaylee, there were plenty ofquiet households Saturday.Kaylee slept most of the day! Avie and Allen Eures enjoyed the sights and sounds of Or-lando over the holiday weekend.They have season passes to quitea few of the attractions there andthey are still young enough toenjoy! I have reached the grandold age where I enjoy stayinghome. It is unbelievable, but this year is half over and school willbe starting back before we knowit. There are lots of July birth days in our church. To name afew: Pat Albritton, BobbyBragg, Tisha Crews, DanielDuke, Sylvia Hovind, NancyMcQuaig, Renee Revell, Donaldand Mary Samuels, ChrisThompson and Jake Willis.None of these has to worryabout going back to schoolsoon! Nancy McQuaig told me she and Ruben were real tired lastWednesday. Her son, David, isstationed in Georgia so she getsto see his boys a little more fre quently. Last week they had apicnic at Pioneer Park and thefive children enjoyed playing onthe equipment and all walkingby the river. This is what goodmemories are made of for thechildren. When they are oldthey will remember the goodtime. So many of us look forward to retirement. Mike Alexander diduntil he was retired for a fewmonths. He has gone back towork because all projects werecompleted and he had nothing todo! Roberta must have givenout of honey dos or work wasmore preferable! Please pray for each other and our nation.

She is 65 years old. She was born Feb. 24, 1949. As a child sheliked to readbooks. Also,to play cow-boys and Indians with her older sisters.She said that was because they were theonly ones old enough to go out and play. The type of music Dianna liked to listen to as a child was Elvis Presley andcountry. She said she was country andalso thats all she could get on the radiochannels. Dianna got married to Weyman Darley on March 6, 1964. They met at achurch that they went to. Dianna said she would rather live her childhood in the time that she did, andthen as an adult she would want to livehalf of her adult years in the time periodnow. Then, the other half back when shewas a child. She went to college when she was about 52 years old. She went to be a She Went To College At 52 teacher because she enjoys workingwith children. As a child, her mom and dad had her do regular household jobs such makesure her bed was made. Also, they madeher look after her three younger brothersand sisters. Something that made hermore mature in high school was whenher mom passed away when she was 10years old. Dianna had to take over thehousehold chores and become head ofthe house and look after her brothersand sisters. Dianna liked the way she grew up, but then didnt because she lost most ofher childhood when her mom passedaway. I enjoyed interviewing my grandma, Dianna Darley. I learned new and inter-esting things I didnt know about her be-fore. Back In Time is the result of a class assignment given to ninth graders atHardee Senior High School. Each student is asked to interview an olderperson. Selected interviews are pub-lished here as an encouragement to thestudents and for the enjoyment of ourreaders.

July 10, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C A A W W o o r r l l d d o o f f P P e e a a s s While we are one big United States, the vastness and diversityof our country is most obvious inthe food we eat. While we allsalute the same flag, when itcomes to food, we form smaller,ferociously loyal groups. Ourculinary inheritance was grantedto us by the distinct land thateach of us calls home, and theplace where we took our firstbites. There are certain foods that are native to a New Englanders din ner table -food that for decades,even centuries, sustained a wholeline of Pilgrims -that someonefrom Colorado wouldnt con sider eating. Historically, therewere many good reasons for that. Today, there are even more rea sons to appreciate the differentfoods that are common to ourparticular part of the continent.Thanks to the farm-to-tablemovement, we are all coming tounderstand the true value of eat ing local, and cooking with whatis available in our area. If you are a Southerner, youve probably had more than onebowl of Purple Hull peas. Theyare a cultivar of a bigger familyof Southern peas, or cow peas.Most people have heard of itsmore popular cousin, the black-eyed pea, even if theyve neverspent New Years Day boiling upa pot flavored with a smokedham hock. In the South, we alsoenjoy crowder peas, cream peasand the more exotic pink-eye.Many times, people from this re gion refer to the whole lot ofthem as peas, which someonefrom the North would stronglydisagree with. Its all a little confusing, with so many similar types that areeach slightly different from theother. Especially since all of KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow them are not really peas bybotanical definition, but beans.Peas also possess all the wonder ful qualities of beans as a meat less source of protein and dailyfiber. It is believed that Southern peas were brought here fromAfrica and planted by plantationand farm owners as food for live stock. That's how black-eyedpeas became known as cow peas.Peas often are a confusing cate gory of varieties that only South erners truly understand. But indeep summer, all of these typesof peas are available. Peas are sopopular that there are festivalscelebrating the harvest all overthe South. As with so many foods, though, what was once scornedis now craved. Folks whovegrown up eating them covetfresh peas, which cook up in notime. But if you cant get fresh,then use the ones in the frozenvegetable section of your gro cery. Whether fresh or frozen,theyll be delicious in my recipefor Southern Succotash. SOUTHERN SUCCOTASH This the perfect recipe to pre pare in a slow-cooker! I love theaddition of fresh or frozen okraat the end of the cooking time. Ifusing fresh okra, dont cut thepods until right before addingthem to the pot to prevent themfrom becoming slimy.1 smoked ham hock (about 11/2 pounds) or 1 package ofsmoked turkey wings (about 11/2 pounds)1 1/2 cups water or low-sodiumchicken broth1 can (28-ounces) diced toma toes, undrained2 cups fresh black-eyed peas or1 (16-ounce) package blackeyed peas or crowder peas,thawed2 cups fresh corn kernels or 1package (10 ounces) frozencorn, thawed1 1/2 cups fresh lima beans,shelled or 1 1/2 cups frozenlima beans, thawed1 medium green pepper,seeded and chopped1 medium onion, chopped3 celery ribs, chopped1/3 cup ketchup2 tablespoons poultry season ing1 1/2 teaspoons salt1 teaspoon paprika1 teaspoon black pepper1 teaspoon sugar, stevia orhoney1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepperor several dashes of hot sauce,to taste1 bay leaf1 cup sliced fresh or frozen, cutokra In a Dutch oven or large, 5quart slow cooker, add in hamhock or smoked turkey wings,tomatoes, fresh or frozen black-eyed peas, corn, lima beans,green pepper, onion, celery,ketchup, poultry seasoning, salt,paprika, pepper, sugar, cayennepepper or hot sauce, and bay leaf,and stir to combine.

A passerby told uswe should pick her up or putbooties on her. While I don'tthink it was any of her busi ness, why would anyone putbooties on a dog in such hotweather? Tanya C., via email DEAR TANYA: It may seem weird, but booties can be just asimportant in the summertime as they are in winter. They'll protectthe sensitive pads on Sasha'spaws, which can burn pretty eas ily even at the beach on hot sandor wooden boardwalks, or be cuton sharp rocks or other objects. Dogs both large and small can suffer in hot weather, not justfrom the heat and sun but fromhot pavement. Walk them in theearly morning or late evening,when it's not as hot, and makesure they have plenty of water todrink at all times. Keep them in doors or in a shady, well-venti lated area (but NOT your car) during the heat of the day. Small dogs can be picked up and carried over rocky areas orhot pavement, but it's importantfor them to get their exercise. Solook for a set of booties inSasha's size. If she doesn't likewearing them, train her to wearthem for a minute or two at firstand gradually extend the time,giving her lots of praise whenshe wears them calmly. After every walk, even if she wears booties, check the bottomof her paws for injury. If you no tice cuts or burns, or if she islimping or constantly licking herfootpads, contact Sasha's veteri narian. Send your questions or com ments to firstname.lastname@example.org.

As she began setting up and organizing her kitchen, she bought dozens of gadgets such as shredders, choppers, odd can openers, juicers, ricers and even a Tala Egg Wedger, which was used for slicing hard-boiled eggs. I find these items fascinating and would like to find out more about them. Any suggestions? Margaret, Panama City, Fla. A: There are two helpful books I think you'll enjoy: "Spiffy Kitchen Collectibles" by Brian S. Alexander, and "The Antique Trader Kitchen Collectibles Price Guide" edited by Kyle Husfloen, both published by Krause Books. I also urge you to visit local antique malls, where you'll be amazed at the demand and prices generated by older kitchen items. Q: I have a coin collection that began with my great-grandfather and continued with my dad, who died four years ago. The collection is a combination of coinage and currency. I need a professional appraiser so we can establish values for insur ance purposes. Can you help me? Sally, Metarie, La. A: Dr. Spencer Peck is a senior member of the American Society of Appraisers and specializes in numismatics, one of only nine appraisers in the United States with such credentials. Contact is P.O. Box 526, Oldwick, NJ 08858; and spencerpeck@com cast.com. Q: My dad was sta tioned in Germany during the 1950s and purchased several Hummel figurines during that time. Can you recommend a good price guide so we can determine current values? Laura, Paris, Ark. A: There are several excellent guides, but my personal favorite is "M.I. Hummel: Figurines, Plates, Miniatures & More" by Robert L. Miller and published by Portfolio Press. This guide is frequently updated, and its prices seem to reflect the present econ omy and marketplace. It can be ordered at amazon.com. Q: My dad was a pipe smoker, and I have inherited about two dozen of his pipes. Do you have any suggestions of how I can dispose of them? Cynthia, Buffalo, N.Y. A: One of the better groups is the North American Society of Pipe Collectors. Contact is P.O. Box 9642, Columbus, OH 43209. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O. Box 536475, Or lando FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to email@example.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox can not personally answer all reader questions, nor do appraisals.

By Larry CoxQ: My apartment's window air-conditioning unit dripped water from the front left cor ner for several days before I re alized it, and the carpet underneath is soaking wet. How can I dry it quickly? Chase T., Concord, N.H. A: First off, since you live in an apartment, contact the land lord or management office right away. They should be informed of any damage that has occurred, as soon as it happens. If the leaky air-conditioning unit belongs to the landlord or management company, then re sponsibility for the cost of the re pair may belong to them. Many communities will send out a maintenance person or repair contractor to fix or replace both the leaky A/C unit and the damaged section of carpet. If the A/C unit belongs to you, then you may be responsible for some or all of the repair cost. Some communities will make the repair anyway, so that the apartment meets their standards, and you'll have to negotiate with them about the cost or forfeit some of your security deposit. You also can offer to do the re pair yourself or hire a repair con tractor yourself, at your cost. The landlord or management will want to check on the final result. So, what needs to be repaired? You'll need to stop the A/C unit from leaking immediately. Shut it off, take it out of the window if possible (have a helper assist you with the lift) and set in a plastic tub to let the condensed water drain out. Remove and clean the air filter and look for an external drain hose, if the unit has one, that might have come loose. Check the window for any swelling or damage to the wood, which can occur if a leak contin ues for some time. If the unit cools well, the problem may simply be that it is tilted too far forward, so that condensation runs inside along the bottom of the unit rather than dripping outside. Try placing the unit back into the window so that it has a slight tilt about 5 de grees up and out. Put a catch bucket underneath the leak area and turn the unit on for an hour or so, checking to see if condensation still comes inside. If this doesn't fix it, you may need to repair or replace the unit. Next, the carpet. Blot the area with towels as soon as possible to remove excess water. Since it's been soaking for sev eral days, you (or the repair per son) need to dry the area all the way down to the underlayment and flooring. Remove furniture from the area clear that half of the room completely, or the whole room if possible. Starting at the nearest corner, pull back the carpet, followed by the padding. Note where the water stains have reached. If the flooring underneath is wet, you need to dry that immediately. The repair or maintenance per son will determine if the carpet is salvageable. Cost-conscious apartments will try to dry the car pet and flooring and at most replace the padding. If this is the direction taken, check the carpet frequently after the repair and make sure you don't smell mildew or mold. If mold sets in, the entire carpet will probably need to be replaced. HOME TIP: Water spills on carpet should be blotted up with paper or cloth towels as soon as possible to keep them from reaching the padding underneath.

Can you tell me what my fa vorite actor from that show, Luke Macfarlane, has coming up next? Vivian R., Brunswick, Ga. A: Luke can be seen next starring in the Hallmark Movie Channel's original movie "The Memory Book," which premieres Satur day, July 26, at 9/8c. The story centers on photographer Chloe (played by Meghan Ory), who stumbles upon an old photo album from the 1970s. She sets out to find the couple in the album to prove that true love exists. Along the way, she meets Gabe Sinclair (Luke), a mysterious but charming bartender who soon finds himself falling in love with her. I spoke with Luke about what the movie means to him: "I think it's about investigating the past and learning from those who've come before us about how to live our lives. That sounds a little over the top, but I think the movie is about what the generation before us has to teach us. I'm a big history buff myself. I al ways look to the past, and I think that's what our main characters are doing looking to the past and seeing how it formed them. I think it's also about staying open to the possibility of love." Luke looks back fondly on his time on "Brothers and Sisters": "It was a great experience. It's so rare that something lasts for five years. We got to tell a lot of re ally good stories. As far as the cast goes, I see Matthew Rhys whenever I'm in New York. I love Sally Field. She's every thing that everyone wants her to be. And Calista Flockhart it was an amazing, positive experi ence." Q: I was super excited about the new series "Hieroglyph," and now I hear it won't be air ing. What's up with that? Gina R., via email A: Fox recently announced that it's decided to pull the plug on the historical fantasy/thriller cen tered on ancient Egypt, even though it gave the green light and shot the pilot episode. According to insiders: "The series wasn't creatively coming together the way executives had hoped." After watching the trailer for the series, to me it looked like a cheap "Game of Thrones" ripoff, so maybe Fox execs were saving us from finding that out for ourselves. Q: You wrote before that "Cedar Cove" is returning this summer. Do you know when yet? Audrey E., via email A: The popular Hallmark Channel series starring Andie MacDowell returns for its 12-episode second season on Thursday, July 17, at 8/7c. The show opens with Olivia (Andie MacDowell) and Jack (Dylan Neal) rushing to the hospital to wait with Jack's son, Eric (Tom Stevens), as Eric's girlfriend suffers from a serious pregnancy complication.

Though the connection to local history isn't clear, Hitler's typewriter is on display to curious onlookers. people who think good deeds and selfless acts are on the decline. If so, consider this story: In 2010, an employee at a recy cling company came across 23 U.S. savings bonds while sorting through a bin of discarded pa pers. Instead of trying to cash the $22,000 worth of bonds him self, Mike Rodgers decided to track down the owner. It turned out that the woman who had bought the bonds, Martha Dobbins, had been dead for almost two decades. Rodgers didn't give up, though; he began a search for Robert Roberts, who was also named on the bonds. Though the name is common and Rodgers hit many dead ends, he eventually located the correct Robert Roberts, the son of Martha Dobbins. Roberts hadn't even been aware of the bonds' existence. Rodgers, his good deed finally being done, refused a reward. the window and see banks of freshly fallen snow, remember that only about 8 percent of that fluffy whiteness is actually water; the remaining 92 percent is air. all eight Harry Potter movies, actor Daniel Radcliffe went through 160 pairs of glasses and 70 magic wands. *** Thought for the Day: "Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can: All of them make me laugh."

I have come to theoverwhelming conclusion thatsugar is a poison to the humanbody. However, I have neverread any information regard ing the safety of sugar substi tutes. My questions are: Arethey harmless to our bodies;are some safer than others;and do any benefits exist inusing some over others? J.R.K.B. ANSWER: While I think the term "poison" is too strong, Iagree that excess sugar is un healthy and contributes to bothType 2 diabetes and to obesity.Natural sugars, such as fromwhole fruits, appear to be treateddifferently in the body fromadded sugars, such as those insoft drinks, sports drinks and en ergy drinks. Your question is about sugar substitutes, and there are many.There's no way to comprehen sively cover them all, but let metalk about the different types. Artificial sweeteners include aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet),saccharin (Sweet'N Low), su cralose (Splenda) and others.Most experts agree that these aresafe in reasonable doses, butsome people may have unpleas ant reactions to any of them. As partame and saccharin have beenlinked to cancer in laboratory an imals, but never in humans. The natural sweetener Stevia also is generally well-toleratedand safe. Sugar alcohols, such as sor bitol, xylitol and mannitol, raiseblood sugars somewhat andoften cause cramping, gas anddiarrhea if taken in large quanti ties or by people sensitive totheir effects. So, while all are generally safe, any can cause side effects.I don't recommend any of themabove the others, though I haveseen reactions to sugar alcoholsmost frequently.DEAR DR. ROACH: I havebeen diagnosed with Holmes-Adie syndrome. I cannot findmuch information on this syn drome other than that it israre, caused by a virus or bac teria and affects the autonomicnervous system. What is theautonomic nervous system?Can you provide any informa tion on this condition, if it willprogress and what to expect?What kind of doctor treats it? N.W. ANSWER: The Adie pupil, alsocalled Adie's tonic pupil, is foundwhen the eye loses part of itsnerve supply. This causes onepupil to be bigger than the otherduring light exposure but smallerthan the other when looking atobjects close up. An Adie's pupilusually occurs without otherproblems in the autonomic nerv ous system, but it can occuralongside other problems, suchas Ross syndrome, where theAdie pupil is associated with ab normal reflexes and partial lossof sweating. Syphilis causes asimilar pupil, but on both sides,in which case a test for syphilisshould be done. An eye doctor can help fit spe cial glasses with one lens that'sdifferent from the other to helpcorrect the vision issues that mayoccur. Fortunately, most cases donot progress. The booklet on macular de generation explains anothercommon eye ailment. Readerscan order a copy by writing: Dr.Roach No. 701W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475.

STUDY: YOU CAN DELAY ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE You can forestall dementia by many years by staying mentallyengaged and challenged, accord ing to a long-term Mayo Clinicstudy. The study began in 2004 with nearly 2,000 participants rang ing in age from 70 to 89 yearsold. Most of them had no de mentia, and nearly 300 had mildcognitive impairment. The studyfocused on the role of the sub jects' previous education, occu pation and life enrichment.After a baseline measurementwas taken, participants in thestudy followed an "intellectualenrichment program" and wereperiodically re-evaluated forfunctioning, memory, cognitiveskills and language. Lifelong intellectual enrich ment was seen as a protectivestrategy to delay cognitive im pairment by nearly 9 years. Thiswas true even in those partici pants who carry the APOE4gene, which is a risk factor forAlzheimer's disease. Specifically, cognitive impairment was delayed 8.7 yearsin those with high lifetime en richment. Higher educationalone brought a five-year delay. For those who carry the APOE4gene, even beginning cognitiveactivity late in life brought threeyears of delay. Late beginningfor those without the genebrought seven years of delay. Staying mentally engaged and stretching our brains can evenhelp those of us who didn't havehigher education or challengingoccupations, or who carry theAPOE4 gene. Here are some suggestions: Take a few art classes, or try artsand crafts. Did you play a musi cal instrument as a child? Takelessons again. Read. Dip into au thors and topics you haven't ex plored before. Play games youenjoy, and learn new ones. Tryvideo games! Do a crosswordpuzzle every day. Sign up forclasses at the senior center. While there's no sure-fire cure or treatment for Al-zheimer'sdisease, these studies show wayswe can help ourselves.Matilda Charles regrets that shecannot personally answerreader questions, but will incor porate them into her columnwhenever possible.
