Here, Dennis Carlton Jr. hangs on to that bronc! ROUGH RIDE! By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate An effort to create a physical address for Wildcat Stadium hasprompted a light-hearted debate. At Monday evening’s meet ing, the Wauchula City Com-mission grappled with a requestto name the pavement off WestMain Street leading back to thestadium. The request of theSchool Board, via Superinten-dent of Schools David Dur-as tanti, was to call it StadiumRoad. Since all road names within the Wauchula limits must haveCity Commission approval, thetopic was on the night’s agenda. Called various names over the years, the road which runs be tween the Adult Education Cen ter and the north practice fieldshasn’t had an official name, butnow the School Board ran intothe need to name it. City commissioners talked about it a length. A motion to ap prove Durastanti’s request diedfor lack of a second. After more humorous chat and a call for a more creative orimaginative approach, Com-missioner Ken Lambert madethe motion to suggest the schoolname it Wildcat Way. “They’remissing an opportunity here.Let’s make the counter-proposalfor the name and pre-approve it.If they accept it, then it shall beso named.” The commission unanimously approved that motion. Last summer, work done at the stadium included putting inthe new west bleachers. Thissummer is concentrated on re-modeling the Luther ColbertPress Box and painting the sta dium, field house and conces sion building. Next summer willbring more extensive work onthe track and the field. The 2014 Wildcat varsity football season starts Aug. 22,but there are no home gamesuntil Sept. 12. The Kickoff Classic is at Auburndale on Aug. 22, fol lowed by a trip to Tampa Jesuiton Aug. 29 and another to FortMeade on Sept. 5. Junior varsity football will be the first to play in the newlypainted stadium.

The Florida Department of Education released preliminarygrades for all elementary andmiddle schools in the state. Lo cally, half of the schools im proved by one grade level whilethe other half kept the samescores as last year. Hilltop Elementary remained an A school, Bowling Green El ementary maintained a C andZolfo Springs Elementary wasagain a D school. Meanwhile, Wauchula Elementary increased from a C to aB and North Wauchula wentfrom a D to a C. On the secondary school side, Hardee Junior High raised its Fto a D. Superintendent David Durastanti released a statement not ing that over the past three years,the state board has made severalchanges to the school-gradingformula. More changes are to come.A press release from the DOE, also on Friday, states,“This is the final year schoolgrades will be calculated usingthe current formula.” The newformula is meant to be moresimple and transparent, the DOEsaid. The current grading formula uses calculations based 50 per cent on performance and 50 per cent on learning gains. Gains aredetermined by students who maintain a level three or higheron FCAT 2.0 and End-of-Courseexams, or by those that increaseby one or more level from theirprevious year. Durastanti asserted there is a disconnect between FloridaComprehensive Assessment Testresults and the school grades. Hewent on to name several areaswhere Hardee County elemen tary schools and the junior highoutperformed other nearbycounties. He mentioned that in math, third, fourth and fifth graders inthe county beat the state and theHeartland on the FCAT. Thirdgraders tied for first in the state,and fourth graders were fifth inthe state. He also praised eighthgraders for having 98 percentstudents score proficient in Al gebra 1 EOC. On FCAT reading, local third, fourth and fifth graders had thehighest scores in the Heartland.The percentage of sixth andeighth graders who scored alevel three or higher also in creased from the previous year. Durastanti also mentioned gains in both science and writingFCAT results. According to Durastanti BGE, HES and WES rank in thetop 36 percent in the Heartlandarea, and HES has the highestpoint total in the Heartland. Statewide, the DOE noted the number of A schools showed alarge increase, going from 481to 621. B schools in the state saw a See GRADES 2A The Herald-Advocate, Hardee County’s Hometown Coverage, earned statewide honors last week. The Florida Press Association presented the newspaper with three awards for its reporting during a recognition ban quet held as the organization met in South Florida for its an nual convention. The newspaper was the recipient of one first-place prize and two third-place awards as part of the statewide 2013 Bet ter Weekly Newspaper Contest. The contest drew more than 1,700 entries by Florida’s weekly, bi-weekly and tri-weekly newspapers in all divi sions, one of the highest levels of participation to date. Inall, about 20 percent of the submissions garnered awards. Serving as judges for the competition were members of the New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio press associations. Achieving the highest honor in the state for News Report ing was Managing Editor Cynthia Krahl’s story headlined“Manhunt Puts Hardee On Alert.” It took first place in its di vision in describing the local manhunt for a Polk Countyfugitive hiding in Hardee County. Attaining third-place honors for Government Reporting was a story written by news writer Joan Seaman, headlined“FINR Seeks $38 Million From County.” The story ad dressed a lawsuit filed by the corporation against the CountyCommission over a zoning decision. And taking third-place honors in Feature Writing was Krahl for “Cold Case: Doc Henderson’s Killer Found.” Ittold of the years of pursuit of the man who murdered Dr.Harold Henderson in 1995, and of the pain his family suf fered. The convention was held at the national-landmark Bilt more Hotel in Coral Gables, and was attended by Krahl, Sea man, Publisher Jim Kelly and writer Michael Kelly.

The county tax roll is down 3.5 percent for next year, but the commission began reviewing a tentative new budget of $48.9 mil lion which included a 6.47 percent ad valorem tax increase to 9.2797mills, a jump of $676,000. The rollback rate, which would raise thesame amount of taxes as the current budget, is 8.7155 mills. Theproposed new budget had a three percent across the board pay in crease. This is being written Tuesday evening, and the board continues the budget planning through today (Thursday). All these figures arepreliminary, and there will be public hearings before a final budgetis approved for next year. Proposed budget revenues are $13.4 million, ad valorem taxes; $2.3 million, general government taxes; $2.2 million, state grants;$6.2 million, state shared revenue; $2.9 million, charges for services;$17 million, cash forwards; $250,000, federal grants; $137,300, li censes/permits/fees; and $32,706 for interest and ot her earnings. Other revenues include $519,923, mining; $445,161, Wauchula Hillssewer and water; $824,406 solid waste assessment; $130,920, rentsand royalties; $108,600, Vandolah sewer; $76,000, Pioneer ParkDays; $1.7 million, fire/rescue assessments; $120,500, transporta tion trust; $602,700, miscellaneous; $21,880, fire/rescue; and$225,250, fines and forfeiture. The sheriff’s office has submitted a proposed new b udget of $8.4 million, a big jump over the current 7.76 million. One would hope the commissioners talk to a number of local taxpayers and business owners and will not adopt a tax increasewhen the county is not growing and the tax roll is dropping. Mostcounty budgets in recent years, with built-in step increases for em ployees, have risen significantly in recent years. The tax roll maycontinue to drop in the next couple of years, since so much of it istangible property subject to depreciation and there is not much newconstruction going on. Other estimated expenses include $6.2 million, general government; fire/rescue, $3.3 million; E-911, $287,891; transportation,$6 million; Wauchula Hills Enterprise, $3 million; solid waste, $2.3million; Vandolah Enterprises, $126,250; $1.2 million, human serv ices; $1.6 million, culture/recreation; courts, $889,517; economicenvironment, $704,345; mining, $478,633; and physical environ ment, $6.2 million. Citrus values on the tax roll are down $17 million. Pasture leases are bringing $20 to $25 an acre, said county property ap praiser Kathy Crawford. The county has 186 employees. There are six mosquito control spray routes in Hardee. The agri-civic center may get a $500,000improvement. Hardee Lakes county park now has 60 RV campsites with water and electric, with a nearby dumping station. The 2013 county budget is $51.8 million, and the proposed new budget is $49 million. This can vary because of cash carryovers,grants, big capital projects, etc. More citizens should take an active interest in government. Growth does not generally pay for itself, requiring more services.Personnel in government is the biggest cost, but employees, providethe services. Private industry in lean times generally cuts costs inorder to survive. Elected public officials often do not have the stom ach or the will to hold down costs. It is much easier to raise taxesand approve increased budgets. Kathy Crawford said foreclosures in Hardee County are as fol lows; 2013, 87; 2012, 66; 2011, 26; 2010, 91; 2009, 14; 2008, 11;and 2007, 2.

July 17, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A 22-year-old woman arrested for leaving her two babies unat tended while she went out andvisited with friends has beenplaced on probation. Daphni Nicole Aguilar, of 1066 Wild Turkey Lane, Wau-chula, appeared in Hardee Cir cuit Court on July 1 for apre-trial hearing before CircuitJudge Marcus J. Ezelle on twocounts of neglect of a child. Instead, a plea agreement was reached between Assistant Pub-lic Defender Rhonda Whittakerand Assistant State AttorneyHannah Potter which precludedthe need for a jury trial. In it, the state agreed not to prosecute one of the counts inexchange for Aguilar’s plea tothe second count. Ezelle then sentenced the woman to two years on super vised probation. Further, he as sessed $1,094 in court costs,fines and fees. Should she successfully complete the terms of her probation,the court will withhold adjudica tion of guilt in the case. Aguilar’s children were 5 months old and 2 years old at thetime, Maj. Randy Dey of theHardee County Sheriff’s Officesaid. The incident occurred onSaturday morning, April 5, at theCitrus Valley Mobile Home Parkoff South Florida Avenue andCarlton Street in Wauchula. Dey said a deputy was at the mobile-home park on a callwhen he spotted an open door atanother residence and went toinvestigate. He found the twobabies inside. Aguilar was arrested and jailed later that morning. Oneday later, she posted a $1,000bond to gain her release fromjail pending trial. Dey said that at about 8:30 a.m., Aguilar left her 5-month-old daughter and 2-year-old sonasleep on a bed in the rear bed room of her mobile home as shewent out to visit her next-doorneighbor. The children were unattended, he said. After visiting next door, Aguilar left that residence andthen went to another home onanother street within the mobile-home park, Dey said. A report described Aguilar’s mobile home as having no elec tricity, no hot water, no refriger ation and no cooking facilities. When she arrived home a short time later, the mothersmelled of alcohol, a report said. Dey said the state Department of Children & Familieswas contacted, and the childrenwere released into the care of anapproved family member. Mom Who Left Babies Alone Gets Probation Aguilar By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A man who stabbed his room mate during a drunken brawl hasavoided any further jail time. Hipolito Telesfor Vargas, 54, of 150 Sims Road, Wauchula,was sentenced in Hardee CircuitCourt to three years of super vised probation for the crime ofaggravated battery with a deadlyweapon. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle also ordered Vargas to pay$1,608 in fines, court costs andfees. Following his sentencing, Vargas was released from theHardee County Jail, where hehad remained in custody sincehis Jan. 12 arrest. According to Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriff’sOffice, Vargas had been arrestedafter authorities were called toLang’s Trailer Park in Wauchulaon Jan. 11 at about 11:57 p.m. They responded to 116 Lang Dr., No. 3, to learn from a resi dent of the mobile home therethat two of his fellow farmworkers had been fighting. At one point, the witness said, one of the two men, who wereroommates, picked up an eight-to 10-inch knife from thecounter and plunged it into theother roommates’ abdomen. The knife cut into the left side of theabdominal area, Dey noted. The suspect, Vargas, then fled on foot. The witness described Vargas and his clothing to respondingofficers. Dep. Steve Ahrens andhis K-9 tracked the suspect,finding him hiding under a tree. Vargas was taken into custody and booked into the HardeeCounty Jail on the second-de gree felony charge of aggravatedbattery.

BioNitrogen has agreed to purchase land from Larry Davis but has not paid for it. Ifawarded the $2 million requestby EDA, BioNitrogen would use$1 million toward the land pur chase and the rest for engineer ing, soil borings, variousfeasibility and marketing stud ies, design, and accounting andlegal fees. Samuels said BioNitrogen plans to build similar plants inHendry and Taylor counties inFlorida plus five in Louisiana. Aplant of this type does not existbut the various technologieshave been proven, he said. TheHardee plant would receive 70truckloads of biomass daily,within a 100-mile radius.

In the past few weeks, six buildings on the old junior highcampus were demolished. Allwere no longer of any use to theschool district and were onlycosting money to upkeep. Some of the buildings had been broken into and vandalizedover the years. Although thebuildings weren’t being used,maintenance still had to be doneto repair damages. The six included those which had served as the sheriff’strailer, snack shack, attendanceoffice, Alternative ClassroomEnvironment space, teacher’slounge and the old cafeteria. Thejob was done by RobCor Con tracting for $41,000. According to the Florida De partment of Education’s five-year survey report, two othernearby buildings also need togo. Listed are a wooden portableat Wauchula Elemen-tary and the old concession stand atWildcat Stadium. The portable is in “poor con dition” and is not being used.The concession stand is in “de teriorated condition” and has notbeen used since the current con cession stand was built in 2005-06. By demolishing the stand, anew visitor’s entrance will beavailable once the track is re done next summer. In order to save money, Director of Educational FacilitiesRob Krahl asked the board toapprove the demolition of thetwo buildings while the contrac tor is still on site. The contractorsaid it would cost a total of$4,300 to take down both build ings. Seeing that the two buildings have to go, the board approvedthe action and steps have alreadybeen taken in preparation fortheir removal. Krahl said he hasalready disconnected the utilitiesin both buildings, and he expectsthese remaining demolitions tobegin this week. 6 Old Buildings Down, 2 To Go YOUR BUSINESS COULD APPEAR HERE TOO!!CNancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce Daniels 773-3255 www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com 7:17c Frankie’s773-5665Hours: Tuesday Friday 9-6; Saturday 9-3 Now Accepting H AIR S ALON7:17c JAN PLATT HARDEE COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 4 EXPERIENCED & DEDICATED RE-ELECT Pol.

Saturday turned into “old home” day as my daughter,Juanita, and her life partner,David Trevino, came from La belle to spend the day with meand other family members in thearea. Soon after their arrival, mygrandson, Chris-topher Wilkins,and his fiance, ZykeriaDawkins, arrived and spent therest of the morning at my househere in Riverview Heights. Juanita and David had other family members to visit, but theother three of us decided to go toFort Green to check on Joseph, as he is still recovering from hisrecent shoulder surgery but hadhit a deer and had gone to theemergency room the previousnight. This is the third deer in asmany years that has run in frontof his vehicles. We joke aboutthe deer hunting him, not himhunting the deer. Joseph and hisvehicle are both OK, althoughhe states that he is sore. While at Joseph’s, we also got to visit with my oldest son, JackWilkins Jr., and his son, Chip(actually Jack III), as they werealso there. I took photos of Chipand Christopher, who except forage could be twins. My sister-in-law, Sharon Adams, and her husband, Paul,are Joseph’s neighbors, so I tooka few minutes to spend withthem before they left to do theirweekly grocery shopping. Thesetwo celebrated their 25th wed ding anniversary this Tuesday.Congratulations, you two! New Hope Baptist Church just completed Vacation BibleSchool, with a fantastic turnoutof children and a lot of prepara tion and hard work on behalf ofall of the workers. The childrenlearned that when they feelalone, or they feel they are dif ferent, or are sad or afraid, Jesusis always there for them. VBS closed out with a morn ing worship service on Sundayfollowed by lunch in the churchfellowship hall.

Wes and Leslie Roe, and Sean Keleher and his finance KerrySue Schontag operate the sportsshop in the west side of theHeartland Gold building at theintersection of U.S. 17 Southand Stenstrom Road inWauchula. Crooked Hook Outfitters, named after the crooked hookmany fishermen use, caters tothe purist who prefers to use thevintage lures that have been suc cessful. “They’re no longermade, those companies havegone out of business, but we’ve been able to go on-line and findthem,” said Roe recently. Fly fishermen can use the vin tage lureswith thetraditionalrod andreel.CrookedHook alsohas the St.Croix high-end rods which canbest be used on-shore or fresh water fishing. They also havecast nets and other equipment. Another idea is the bow-fish ing equipment available. Bowfishing is a relatively new phe nomenon with arrows with anattached reel. Usually used inthe shallower waters of the lakeor river, when a carp, Nile Perch or catfish is hit, the fishermancan reel it in as with traditionalfishing. The new shop,designed tohelp theskilled fish erman obtainexcellentproducts without driving a hour to getthem, also features a variety ofclothing. There’s the Aftco fish ing apparel line of shirts, shortsand caps, Rainbow flip-flops,Buffs wraps to protect the neckand face from the sun and, ofcourse, the Ray Ban sunglassesa fisherman might need. They have Orca coolers and the Arctic Tundra Ice chillers insizes small to large. There’s also a line of Southern Marsh casuals, nice T-shirts,polo shirts and button-down fullsleeve fashions.

To do what is right is always good,but to do wrong is always mean.” –––––– My late father always said that it ain’t late until two and then it is a little too late. –––––– I personally believe that most things we worry about happening that would be bad for us and our loved ones never materialize.

By Carolyn Hendry Wyatt Extension Agent ICE CREAM MONTH! July is National Ice Cream Month and just naturally follows National Dairy Month in June. I love ice cream so much I purchased an electric ice cream maker, so all I have to do is plug it in after I have added the ingre dients and walk away from it while it does all the work! Regardless of whether you make your own or buy it at the gro cery store, ice cream is everyone’s favorite summer treat for snacksor desserts. So reading labels is very important when you choose icecream to avoid going over your fat and calorie budget. Ice cream ismade with dairy products, which naturally contain animal fat be cause they originate from dairy cows. Here are three tips to help youenjoy your favorite treat without the guilt: 1.) Choose fat-free ice cream or frozen yogurt over regular ice cream and save 100 calories per half-cup. 2.) Light ice creams have about half the fat as their regular counterparts. 3.)

July 17, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A The Bar Diamond/Arrow G Ranch team shows real grit in the double-mug gin' event. Local Kayle Pella grits her teeth as she hold on tight to the steer's tail, and local Donald "Bear" Murphy holds the steer by its horns. Teammate Chad Carter is in the back, and teammate Kyle Miller is on the ground (face down) still trying to hold onto the steer's one horn. The Fly By Night Ranch team shows how it's done in the double mugg in' — (from left) Kyle Murphy holds the steer's head while Luke Cantu works on flanking it b y the front leg, and Donny Boyd by the back leg while Jordan Boyd holds it b y the tail. Teammate Brandon Dieter is on horseback behind Boyd. Dieter roped the steer, and therefore is not allowed to dismount during this event. Robert Fussell of the Switch Ranch team gets mashed into the ground underneath the steer, while teammates Clint Davis and Matt Carlton come to the rescu e. Scenes like this are what make the double-muggin' event so exciting! Brandon Dieter of the Fly By Night Ranch team shows off during the cowhide drag. Rodeo Bits By Kathy Ann Gregg HENDRY COUNTY RANCH RODEO The ranch rodeo at Labelle is regularly one of the first Florida Cattlemen’s Association qualifiers every year. The Hendry CountyCattlemen’s Association puts on a fine show, and this year was nodifferent. The evenings of Feb. 21-22 saw great ranch rodeo action at the Labelle rodeo arena. This year the Ocala Livestock Pavilion washosting another FCA qualifier that very same weekend, so manyteams traveled to compete in both events. Of the 19 teams at Labelle, four represented Hardee County. Friday night saw the Stevens Land & Cattle team, and Saturdaythere was Switch Ranch, Fly By Night Ranch (great name, guys!),and Bar Diamond/Arrow G. The team branding event was up first. This is the Switch Ranch’s favorite event, so their time of 40.63 seconds was prettygood (considering the winning time was 38.25 seconds). That teamwas made up of Peck Harris, Matt Carlton, Robert Fussell, MattDavis and Jessie Gattis. I never did get the time for Stevens Land,but Fly By Night completed it in 1:37, and Bar Diamond took a no-time when the calf crossed back over the line. The double muggin’ was up next. I love this event, watching the cowboys get knocked over, sometimes even ending up under neath the steer, and the female team members grabbing it by the tail,sometimes getting dragged through the dirt by their heels! StevensLand & Cattle won this event with an awesome time of 32.06 sec onds, and Christi Pryor is usually right in there with her male team mates (with Carson Storey doing the roping, plus Billy Adams,Marshall Godsey and Cody Storey). Our other three teams all took over one minute, with Switch in at 1:04.25, Fly By Night with a time of 1:26 plus a five-secondpenalty for one extra steer coming over the line, and Bar Diamondtaking 1:46. Kudos go to Kayle Pella – for her first ranch rodeo, shegot right in the fray, and held onto the steer’s tail no matter whichway it went! Her teammates, Donald “Bear” Murphy, Chad Carterand Kyle and Kerwin (“the Big Guy”) Miller, sure need to be proudof her efforts! This is one of the two qualifiers that includes the cowhide drag (Desoto County being the other one). The Arcadia arena is muchbigger than Labelle’s, so in this one the rider has to worry about notswinging the cowhide too wide. (Our own Jamie Rewis knows whatI mean!) Stevens Land took their second event win. Brandon Dieter of the Fly By Night team loves to show off in this event, by ridingup on his knees and waving his hat! His teammates wer e Jordan Boyd and her dad, Donny, Kyle Murphy and Luke Cantu (who hadto step in at the last minute for son Dawson, when they refused tolet Dawson ride because he’s a youth). The team doctoring was the fourth event. This include s both heading and heeling of the steer, which must be done in only threeloops. And once again, Stevens Land won this event, with a time of26.97 seconds. Fly By Night came in at 45.18 seconds, and the othertwo teams both received a no-time, Switch Ranch because their headcatch was an illegal one and Bar Diamond because the steer crossedback over the line. The fifth event was team sorting. The winning time was 29.62 seconds, with Fly By Night coming in at 39.22 seconds and StevensLand with 1:19. Switch Ranch, using the sorting talents of MattCarlton, had two down, when the incorrect numbered calf crossedthe line, causing them to receive a no-time. The Bar Diamond teamalso had two calves properly sorted, but then one of them crossedback over the line, leaving them, too, with a no-time. The final event was the ranch bronc riding. The winning score was a 73. Robert Fussell of Switch Ranch came in at 67, and Mar shall Godsey (of Stevens Land), Chad Carter (of Bar Diamond) andKyle Murphy (of Fly By Night) all tied with a score of 63. That left Stevens Land & Cattle in the Number One spot over all. What a weekend they had, as they traveled to Ocala for Satur day’s performance and they won that event, too. Congrats to thatteam!Keep these “Bits,” boots and bridles riding. Let Kathy Ann Greggin on your events and achievements, and she’ll keep you covered.Reach her at ksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459.

8A The Herald-Advocate, July 17, 2014 VACATE SUMMER! Once again, I am turning my column space over to Lt. Alyssa Hen derson. I do hope you enjoy her message. Ah, the lazy days of summer are here! I don’t know about you, but summertime is my least favorite time of year. It’s unreasonably hot,the bugs are out in full force, it rains all the time which makes theweather even worse because now it’s muggy, and did I already men tion it’s hot? And advertisements lie to everyone, showing how happy people are eating watermelon at the beach. In reality, if you take water melon to the beach it’s likely to dissolve! One summertime tradition I can get on board with is vacation! I love vacation. It’s a break from reality, from life. Vacations give you a chance to go on an adventure and to ex perience something new. I have been extremely fortunate to havetraveled some really amazing places, and have enjoyed the journeyeach one has provided. For my 30th birthday, my cousin gave me a trip to visit him in Singapore. It was my very first trip abroad, and it took a whopping25 hours to get there. Yup, I said 25 hours! Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck the day before I left. I had all these “what ifs” running through my head. What if I get lost? What if I can’t communicate with people in Singapore? What if they hate foreigners? What if I get “taken?” — I don’t have Liam Neesonto rescue me! My longest flight was 15 hours — what the heck wasI going to do for 15 hours on a plane? And how can a big plane stayin the air for 15 hours? Well, all those worries, although very real at the time, were for nothing. As you can see, I didn’t get taken. And, I am happy to report, I didn’t get lost going all over Singapore by myself and the peoplethere were wonderful and very helpful. The food was unbelievable,too! Probably some of the best seafood I have ever had. While Singapore was the most exotic of my vacations, I have learned so much from each destination. Here are a few examples: L06DE96A=2?6C62==J42?DE2J:?E962:C7@CA=FD9@FCDL@?QE36=:6G6E96>@G:6DJ@FH2E49NE96J=:6E@J@FL=H2JD2=H2JD2=H2JDE2<65G:=2?55G:=(%H:E9J@F How do you think I slept through my 15-hour flight??

Sports Quiz By Chris Richcreek By JOAN SEAMANO%&'()(*+,-./-012+3(It’s time for the final signup and practices to begin for the2014 Hardee Youth Footballseason. Signups are Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon at the HardeeYouth Football headquarters offWest Main Street behind the oldjunior high gym. Equipment days are July 3031 and practices begin on Aug.1. The first games are away onAug. 23 and the first homegames at the new Wildcat Den,the field for youth football onthe campus of Hardee JuniorHigh School. They will use theregular practice fields and notabuse the football field, keepingit fresh as it is being re-fertilizednow. There are possibilities in cheer and football for all ages, girlsages 5 to 15 and boys age 5-14,with some changes in categoriesunder Pop Warner football thisseason. The Heartland Hurri canes will not have teams thisseason and may send some play ers to join with Hardee. Football and cheer begins with the Tiny Mites, ages 5-7and continues with the MightyMites, ages 7-9. The junior Pee Wees are for ages 8, 9, 10 andsmaller or lighter 11-year-olds.PeeWees are for 9, 10, 11 andolder/lighter 12-year-olds. Instead of junior midgets and midgets there is a new categorycalled unlimited for players 11 to 14 and 100 pounds and up.The heavier and older 14s are,no doubt, moving on to juniorhigh or junior varsity level ball. The goal is to not turn away any boy who wants to play foot ball and may be heavier or olderthan his teammates. That allowsthe lighter/smaller youth to playdown a level and the heavier/-taller boys to move up a levelfrom the Tiny Mite level on. Youth playing or cheering in the Hardee Youth FootballLeague are urged to keep theirgrades up. Last year, there werea half dozen players and cheer leaders named Pop Warner All-American scholars. To be named to the Academic All-American status is special.Those named last season werefootball players Griffin Clark,Dylan Davis, Jason Garcia,Colton Hay, Quintin Lindseyand Weston Schraeder. Girls onthe All-American cheerleadingscholar team were MarielaBadillo, Syndie Steiner, LianaAlbritton, Makayla Wilson,Maria Fimbres and Ileana Flo res. Some cheerleaders have gone on to earn scholarship monies,such as Claudia Klein, now ahigh school cheerleader, did twoyears in a row.

—Hardee Living— 2B The Herald-Advocate, July 17, 2014 COURTESY PHOTO Hunter Presley, a seventh grader at Hardee Junior High School, recently caught t his 9pound, 30-inch snook in Peace River in Hardee County on a Live Target top water plug. He is the son of Aaron Presley of Wauchula and Jessica Stanphill of Fort Meade. PEACE RIVER SNOOK DEAR DR. ROACH: I have had high blood pressure attimes, and my doctor said Ihave white coat syndrome. Iam on metoprolol andramipril. My blood pressurespikes at times. Recently I did n't feel right. My blood pres sure was reading 200/120,more or less, over 12 hours. Iwent to my doctor, who gaveme something that would bringit down and told me to doubleup on metoprolol. I took read ings at home, and for the nextthree days it was better but stillon the high side. The averageover 12 hours was 145/90. I went to a specialist and took along my readings. Hedidn't seem alarmed that I hadseveral spikes of 190/105. Hetold me it's normal to havehigh blood pressure readings,everyone has them. I can un derstand occasional spikes, butmine goes up and stays up forhours. —G. ANSWER: Let's first define white-coat hypertension, alsocalled reactive hypertension. It'sa condition where blood pressurein the doctor's office is muchhigher than blood pressure athome. Consistent regular read ings at home are a better markerof overall blood pressure. At firstglance, that doesn't seem to be what you have. You have highblood pressure consistently, atleast recently. Even people with whose blood pressure generally is well-con trolled — either naturally or be cause they take medication —will have some readings that arehigher than others. However,readings of 195/105 are too high.Even your relatively better aver age of 145/90 is too high. One test that is often done is called an ambulatory blood pres sure measurement. A blood pres sure monitor is worn for 24 hoursand takes your blood pressureevery 15-20 minutes during theday and 30-60 minutes duringsleep. It's possible that yourblood pressure is normally in thegood range but spikes every timeyou or your doctor take it — Ihave seen a few cases of this. An echocardiogram also can detect changes in the heart, mostcommonly enlargement of theleft ventricle, which may showdamage from high blood pres sure. I suspect you may need ad ditional treatment. This is usuallymedication, but salt restrictionand stress management can re duce blood pressure in most peo ple. High blood pressure is one of our most common ailments. Thebooklet on it describes what itdoes and how it's treated. Read ers can order a copy by writing:Dr. Roach -No. 104W, Box536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or moneyorder (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6Canada with the recipient'sprinted name and address. Pleaseallow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: Some time ago, I had a lot of noisecoming from my stomach, akind of growling sound. It wentaway, but now it comes onagain once in a while. No pain,just the noise. —T.

C The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, July 17, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Playing 10 games over four days, the Hardee Machine Pitchboys won four and lost six. The dozen Hardee Youth Sports boys and their coachesspent four hectic days in Mari ana for the state tournament. Many of the players and coaches were from the seasonchampionship Howard Ferti-lizer Indians and runner-upJohnson Harvesting Yankees.Jeremiah Cabrera and SamuelBraxton of the Mosaic Marinersand Angel Patino and DorianPorter of the Vision Ace Hard-ware Angels joined ShawnRimes, Landon Fuller, MasonCarlton, Drew Thomas and Kai son Rickett of the Indians andB.J. Johnson, Jonathan Guardi ola and Roel “Duran” Juarez. The Machine Pitch All-Stars were managed by Steve John-son of the Yankees and coachesNick McAngus of the Yankeesand Shawn Rimes and NathanFuller of the Indians. The team opened the state se ries with an 11 a.m. game onJune 28 against Holmes County,winning 11-7. Juarez, Rickettand Porter each put a pair ofruns on the board for Hardee,while Guardiola, Carlton,Rimes, Fuller and Braxtonadded solo scores. At 3 p.m. on June 28, the local boys faced South WaltonCounty and won 16-6. Lead-off batter Jaurez paced Hardee withfour trips around the bases.Porter crossed home plate threetimes, Carbrera and Patino twiceapiece and Guardiola, Johnson,Thomas, Rimes and Ricketteach once. On to the 7 p.m. game on June 28, when Hardee continued itswin streak with a 22-2 victoryover Chipley. Juarez andGuardiola were triple-tally bat ters, while Johnson, Cabrera,Thomas, Rimes, Patino andPorter had twin scores and Carl ton, Fuller, Braxton and Ricketta run apiece in the total team ef fort. After that major effort, the first Hardee game on June 29 at3 p.m. was a shutout 11-0 loss toWest Seminole. Various Hardeebatters were stranded short ofcrossing home plate. Returning at 7 p.m. that evening, the Hardee boys con tinued to have a bit of a letdownin a 13-3 loss to Bushnell. Cabr era, Fuller and Braxton crossedhome plate in a second-inningrally but batters were stranded inthe other innings. The games got tougher and tougher. On June 30. Hardeedropped the 11 a.m. opener 10-4 to Sneads. Rimes, Fuller,Braxton and Porter were able toput runs up for Hardee. In the 3 p.m. game, Hardee faced local rival Sebring in a 25-1 loss. Thomas belted a second-inning hit and rode home on another from Braxton. By 7 p.m., Hardee was still on the lower side, losing 15-3 toWest Volusia. Juarez, Carltonand Guardiola scored in succes sion in a second-inning rally thatwas too little, too late. With the games getting harder and harder, Hardee battled in theJuly 1 game at 1 p.m. to a 17-16win over Spring Hill. Each teamhad five runs in the first inning.Spring Hill added a trio of talliesin the second inning, whileHardee went scoreless. Hardeepicked up five in the third inningand Spring Hill had six to lead14-10. Spring Hill got its final pair of scores in the fourth inning.Hardee picked up three in thefourth inning to cut the lead to14-1.

Rimes and Juarez finished with three runs apiece. Cabrera,Johnson and Thomas eachscored twice and Porter, Carl-ton, Rickett and Patino chippedin with a run apiece. With all that energy expended, Hardee came up a bit shot in a14-4 loss to East Lakeland in thefinal game on July 1. Cabrera,Rimes, Carlton and Patino wereable to cross home plate forHardee with several othersstranded along the way. Machine Pitch Wins 4 State Games “Be Aware of False Teachings”In the great gathering together that is happening at this time there is a religious organization that stands out from the others. This particular one claims to be over all religions and its leader is being readily accepted as the head of the new world wide religious order. It makes no contention about claiming to be Christian and another claiming something else, because in order to gain a greater following it is said that human relations and unity are more important than the name of your god. In 1st John 4:3 it says “and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God, and this is the spirit of the Antichrist which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” The key to unlock this text is found in one word “the” as in “the flesh” not “a” flesh but in the same kind of flesh as the human beings that Jesus came to save (Hebrew 2:14,17). In the teachings of this sects it is claimed that the virgin Mary was born without sin so Jesus did not take for Himself our kind of flesh, but “holy flesh” so that He does not make contact with our humanity. For this reason, rather than coming to Jesus directly, it is said we must come through others who will mediate for Him (1st Timothy 2:5). Remember the greater deception is the Antichrist that stands “in place” of Christ and not openly against Him. (Matthew 24:4). These statements are not given as an attack against any person or group but is a warning against deception. God desires All to repeat and be saved!!!

July 17, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C C C o o o o l l F F o o o o d d "As cool as a cucumber" is a much-used phrase, referring to astate of mind rather than theclean crunch of the pale-greenflesh of a cucurbit, but it is true.There isn't a summer-fruitingfood cooler than a cucumber.When the weather wilts you, acucumber is nature's tasty re freshment. Cucumbers are a member of a large, diverse family of summerripening crops, including melonsand squash. So it begs the ques tion: Is it a fruit or vegetable?Because botanists define foodthat develops from the flower ofa plant as fruit, cucumbers —like tomatoes and many othersurprising foods such as avoca dos, corn, beans and peas — are,scientifically speaking, classifiedas fruit. With its unassuming fla vor, cucumbers are versatile inways that other fruits and vegeta bles aren't. Cucumbers possess beneficial antioxidant compounds and arelow in calories, and also offerthese health benefits: G534@41-@.;@45:?501-:0 out.

Cu cumbers often are sprayed withpesticides, so use organic cu cumbers as much as possible.Young cucumbers likely willhave smaller seeds and are usu ally sweeter. English or hothouse cucumbers are longer thanmost other varieties and have athin, tender skin, so they aregreat to leave unpeeled. When choosing cucumbers for pickling, look for the nubby,small cucumbers (often called"pickling cucumbers") for thebest results. There also is an in teresting type of cucumber calledlemon cucumbers. They're called"lemon" not because of the taste,but because they are about the?5F1;2-819;:-:0E188;C/;8 ored when ripe. When at theirbest, cucumbers of all kinds canbring a whole new type of coolto your summertime meals. Cucumbers are the perfect ad dition to salads, slaws and othercold dishes. They add a freshcrispness to cool soups, whichare especially good for warmseason meals. Cucumbers can beshaped into interesting ediblecontainers to hold more stronglyflavored dips and stuffings. Cucumbers of all varieties are loved for their texture as much as their taste. Since cucumbers areapproximately 95 percent water,they could be considered a fi brous, pleasantly flavored thirstquencher. My simple recipe forCucumber Lemonade is the per fect way to use cucumbers to re fresh and rehydrate during thedog days of summer.

On The Agenda Q: While doing a quick vi sual scan of the roof, I noticed a couple of areas where the asphalt shingles were chipped or even lifted a little. I didn't find any leaks in the attic. Do I need to completely replace these shingles? Don C., via email A: If a shingle is chipped but mostly intact, and the surrounding shingles are OK, you can get away with patching it. The repair may last only a couple of sea sons, but it can protect your roof in the short term. To patch a shingle, take a spare shingle of the same material and cut it to the size of the damaged area. Remove any dangling or jutting pieces from the damaged section. Tack the new piece of shingle into place using roofing cement. Shingles that are torn or buckled, missing, or areas with sev eral damaged shingles will ben efit more from replacement than patching. Purchase replacement shingles at the home-improve ment store, along with repair tools and supplies including roofing cement, tack hammer or roofing-nail gun, pry bar and spare roofing nails. Check out the YouTube video titled "Replacing a Damaged Roof Shingle" for a quick-anddirty primer on replacing shingles. As you can see, the shingles above the damaged area need to be lifted slightly (be careful not to break them) so the roofing nails holding the damaged shingle in place can be removed. Once the nails are removed, loosen and slide the damaged shingle downward and out. Slide the replacement shingle into the same spot. If holding the shingle in place is difficult, put a couple dots of roofing cement on the underside just to hold it in place while you secure it. Work your way back up, put ting new roofing nails near the same spots that you removed the old ones from. Re-secure the loosened shingles above with new nails. As always, remember that safety comes first when working up on the roof. Always have a partner helping to steady the lad der, and use a safety line. Move along the roof in a crouch, rather than standing up, which could cause you to lose your balance. If you don't feel confident in working at that height, contact a professional roofer to handle the repair. The National Roofing Contractors Association can pro vide advice and guidance in find ing a contractor. HOME TIP: Check the weather forecast before starting roofing repairs: The materials need several days of dry, warm weather to cure completely.

Q: I know how busy Bene dict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are, but please tell me that there will be another season of "Sherlock." Jenny T., via email A: I am happy to report that there shall indeed be another sea son of the BBC/PBS hit mystery series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's detective book series. The show will return with a three-episode fourth season, which will start with a one-off Christmas special (most likely) in December 2015. You heard me right: That's a Christmas spe cial PLUS a regular threeepisode season. According to "Sherlock" cocreator and actor Mark Gatiss: "At last! It's always special to re turn to 'Sherlock,' but this time it's even more special as we're doing ... a special! Not only THAT, we'll then be shooting three more episodes, which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before. The whole 'Sher lock' team are terrifically excited to return for four new adven tures. The game is on again!" Q: Is it true that characters from the hit Disney film "Frozen" are coming to "Once Upon a Time"? Judging by the tease from this season's finale, I'd say yes. Steff S. in Florida A: That is indeed true, Steff. Characters loosely based on Kristoff, Anna and Queen Elsa who will be played by Scott Michael Foster ("Greek"), new comer Elizabeth Lail and Georgina Haig ("Fringe," "Reck less"), respectively will cool their heels in Storybrooke, Maine, in season four of ABC's red-hot fantasy/drama series. The "Frozen" story arc on "Once Upon a Time" is expected to pick up after the events of the film. Q: I saw an ad for a show called "The Quest," but I can't figure out if it's a competition show, or an actual drama/ad venture series. Can you tell me what it's about? Paul I., Wooster, Ohio A: "The Quest" is a new reality competition show from executive producers of "The Amazing Race," teaming up with an executive producer of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Premiering on ABC on Thursday, July 31, at 8/7c, the series is billed as: "a thrilling race against time, fan tasy, reality and scripted drama ... a new reality-based competi tion series unlike anything else on television. "The show takes 12 unsuspect ing contestants to an imaginative realm where ogres run free in the forest, dragons stir, agents of a dark lord infiltrate the keep, and the only thing standing between peace and chaos are a dozen very unlikely heroes. 'The Quest' will be a fully immersive experience. In and around the castle, the fan tasy realm will come to life with state-of-the art projections, ani matronics, prosthetics and art di rection. The narrative and mythology of 'The Quest' is deep and fully imagined, and it has been designed to incorporate seamlessly with the unexpected actions and decisions of the contestants. Fantasy comes alive as never before in this genre-bending series." Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

A: April 29, 1953, in Beeville, Texas. Q: What was school like back then? A: We had three grades in one room. We had first, second and third in one room; fourth, fifth and sixth in another room; and seventh, eighth and ninth in another room; and 10th, 11th and 12th in another room. There was only one teacher teaching each room. It was hard for the teacher to teach because the teacher didnt have any help. Q: What was your favorite subject? Why? A: Math, because I liked to count money and I liked to do hard math problems. Math was a challenge, and I liked challenging math problems. Q: What were your grades in school? Were they good or bad? A: My grades were Bs and sometimes Cs. Q: What did you do after school? A: When I got home from school, I would eat a little and then go to work. I would pick cotton. Q: When you got home from school did your mom or dad have something ready for you to eat or did you have to make it yourself? A: My mom always had food for us. Q: What was your favorite food There Were 3 Grades In Each School Room when you were a child? A: My favorite food was beans and tortillas. Q: How old were you when you got your first car? A: I was married when I got my first car. I was almost 21 years old. Q: What brand was your first car? A: My first car was a Ford Mustang. Q: What would happen if you brought home a D or an F on your re port card? A: My mom was to always tell me that I needed to study more. Q: Did you like going to school? Why? A: Yes, I did, because I liked to talk to my teacher, study and play with my friends. Q: When did you and your husband get married? A: August 3rd, 1972. Q: How many years have you and your husband been married? A: Forty-one years. Back In Time is the result of a class assignment given to ninth graders at Hardee Senior High School. Each student is asked to interview an older per son. Selected interviews are published here as an encouragement to the students and for the enjoyment of our readers. Back Back In In Time TimeDEAR PAW'S CORNER: We're planning to drive across the country and want to bring along our dogs, "Trudy" and "Jake." We've never done a trip like this before, though, and I hear that there are not many pet-friendly hotels or campsites. Is that true? Carl C., Trenton, N.J. DEAR CARL: Actually, the number of pet-friendly accom modations in the United States is increasing, with even some highend hotels offering pet perks such as rooms customized with sleeping areas, and food and water dishes. Many campgrounds allow dogs, as long as they are leashed and do not disturb other campers. A number of books and websites are available that list pet-friendly places. Check out BringFido .com to search for places to stay during your trip. For a cross-country drive, plan your route based on those petfriendly accommodations. How long do you plan to drive each day? Will you be stopping to sightsee? Are there times when you have to be dog-free (such as going out for a nice dinner), and need to keep them in a safe place like a day kennel? You'll also need to keep the dogs safe while in the vehicle, so look into purchasing either dog restraints (sort of a seat belt for dogs of different sizes) or sturdy carriers, or both. Remember to never let the dogs sit alone in the car, even with the windows down it's incredibly danger ous. If you have time before the big drive, try taking the dogs on a long one-day drive or an overnight trip, so both you and they get used to the idea of trav eling some distance. With some careful planning, you can bring your dogs along and have a very enjoyable, safe trip.
