By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate There was no sentence imposed during this week’s sched uled sentencing hearing forformer certified public account ant Michael D. Manley. Again.Monday’s hearing was a con tinuation of the sentencing hear ing which began in HardeeCircuit Court on June 11. Thishearing was continued as well. No new date has yet been set.Circuit Judge John K. Stargel called a halt to Monday’s pro ceedings when it became clearneither the defense nor the pros ecution was prepared to offer definitive proof of the amount ofrestitution due Manley’s vic tims. All agree Manley stole just under $1.2 million from fivetrust accounts belonging to four clients. They cannot agree onhow much he paid back to thoseaccounts or what legitimate ac counting fees should be chargedthose clients. Next time, Stargel will hear testimony from Manley himself,along with the testimony of anexpert accountant. And next time, the judge as sured, the sentencing hearingwill continue until it reaches its conclusion — even if it takes allday and night. Stargel’s declaration ended the second attempt to pass sen tence on the ex-Wauchula busi nessman who used money fromtrust funds he managed to payboth personal and office ex-penses. Manley has pleaded guilty to 23 felony counts of grand theftand money laundering. He faces up to 49 years in Florida State Prison.

Ernesto Olivera-Santiago, now 23, of 1230 Steve RobertsSpecial, Zolfo Springs, was sen tenced to six years in FloridaState Prison followed by nineyears of supervised sex-offenderprobation. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle also ordered Olivera-Santiagodesignated as a sexual offenderand as a violent felony offenderof special concern. Fines, fees and court costs as sessed against the defendantamounted to $1,630. Following the imposition of sentence, Olivera-Santiago wasremanded into the custody of theSheriff’s Office. He was trans ferred out of the county jail andinto state Department of Correc tions custody in the early morn ing hours on Friday to beginserving his six-year prison term. The mother’s allegations against the man were made oneweek after she had reported herdaughter missing. As the Bowling Green Police Department investigated theteen’s whereabouts, Capt. BrettDowden came into contact withOlivera-Santiago, who said hewas a friend of the girl, offeringher guidance and serving as amentor. The mother became suspi cious of the 22-year-old’s inter est in her daughter, and gainedaccess to the 14-year-old’s Face book account to find out more. There, Dowden said, she dis covered conversations betweenthe two about varying sexualacts and about secret meetings. In a later interview with Oliv era-Santiago, the man admittedto engaging in sexual activitywith the teen, and saidSee MOLESTER 2A By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate A proposal to build a $300 million plant in the Fort Greenarea that would turn biomasswaste into urea fertilizer is onthe verge of collapsing afterbeing in the works for more thana year. The Hardee County Industrial Development Authority,which had agreed to build a railspur for BioNitrogen, is consid ering pulling its funding com mitment after hearing theproperty for the potential plant isin the initial stages of foreclo sure proceedings. BioNitrogen agreed to pur chase 606 acres from E.L. Davisfor $9.6 million in December2012 and has yet to make any payments on the mortgagewhich Davis fi-nanced, com pany officials have acknowl edged. BioNitrogen went back be fore the IDA last Tuesday to askfor either $1 million or $1.5 mil lion in cash instead of the previ ously agreed to arrangement inwhich the IDA and the Eco nomic Development Auth-oritywould each provide $1 millionto construct the rail spur. Brian Kornegay, president of BioNitrogen, said $1 millionwould go toward the land pur chase and $500,000 would gotoward engineering costs for theplant. He said the company isnow interested in purchasing 40acres for $1 million to build thefacility instead of the originalagreement to purchase the entire 606-acre property. He said he was trying to get the county and the IDA on boardwith the project to keep it mov ing. IDA member Lory Durrance asked Kornegay if the companyreceived a notice of foreclosureand he acknowledged it had.Durrance said he could not trustthe company to honor an agree ment made with the IDA if itwould not honor the purchaseagreement with Davis. Kornegay said Davis has re ceived some stock in the com pany and the agreement hadBioNitrogen making installmentpayments as progress was madeon the plant. Bill Lambert, executive direc tor of the IDA, recommendedthe board take the $1 million al location out of the proposedbudget for the upcoming year.He said the new request formoney upfront is far differentfrom the original agreement tobuild the rail spur. “We need to determine if this company is valid and if we wantto invest in them,” he said. Brian Samuels, facility man ager for BioNitrogen, said Tues day that at this time thecompany does not plan on build ing a facility in Hardee County. He said BioNitrogen will now focus on building the sameplants proposed in Taylor andHendry counties, which he saidhave been more willing to workwith the company. Samuels didnot rule out the potential toSee IDA 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate They had their third meeting on Wednesday morning. Negotiations between Hardee Education Association /United,the school employees’ union,and the School Board teambegan nearly a month ago. Theymet Monday and again Wednes-day morning, following theHardee County School Boardmeeting on Monday night. Salary issues have mostly been resolved. Teachers will geta step increase, move up onestep on the salary schedule, plusa $300 cost of living supple ment. In addition, those receiv ing a highly effective overallrating will get an additional$800 and those rated effectivewill get $600. Educational Service Professionals (ESPs), formerly calledSchool Related Personnel(SRPs), will get a step increaseand $300 cost of living supple ment. Teachers in critical shortage areas will also get supplements,averaging $315 per class per se mester. This may include higherlevel math or science, intensivereading, Advanced Placement orDural Enrollment teachers. Teachers and administrators in Title 1 schools with a larger per centage of minority students orin a school graded F or threeconsecutive years of a D gradewill also get salary supplements,averagely $100. The instructional bargaining unit for official evaluations iscalled the Hardee CountyTeacher Performance AppraisalSystem and will include a jointevaluation committee with anequal number of administratorsappointed by the Superinten-dent of Schools and the union.Committee member serve two-year terms. By Wednesday discussions had wound down to two issues,insurance coverage and griev ance procedures. Insurance proposals are for the School Board to provide em ployees with hospitalization,health and life insurance, with a60 day waiting period for pre-existing conditions for new em ployees. The county has hired 45new teachers for the upcomingyear. There are various deductibles and maximum out-of-pocket ex penses. The School Board willpay basic premiums and/or sub sidies for each category of newor long-term employees and willalso contribute to a health sav ings account of the employee’schoosing. A graph of the costs for the School Board to provide the pro posed coverage shows it wouldbe $134,332 for the 45 new em ployees and $928,411 for the ex isting employees. When a probationary or an nual contract teacher with goodratings does not have a contractrenewed, that person can followa grievance procedure up to theSuperintendent of Schools level.This would only apply if therewas no other reason, a just cause to terminate the teacher’s em ployment. It’s the earliest union/School Board negotiations have begunin several years. Usually theystart after school is already insession and can take severalweeks or months to complete. This year’s atmosphere of co operation could mean that thecontract for the 2014-15 schoolyear, which began July 1, maybe complete before school offi cially begins Aug. 18. Representing the union in this year’s negotiations are Presi-dent Heather Lane, AngelaSpornraft, Selden Spencer, JuanCoronado Sr. and Florida Edu cation Association representa tive Rich Frankhouser. On theSchool Board team are adminis trators George Kelly, MarieDasher and Bob Shayman. “We share your interest in re taining effective and highly ef fective teachers. Turnover isSee CONTRACT 2A

Kelly’s Column By Jim Syndicated conservative columnist Cal Thomas recently wrote that over the Fourth of July weekend Chicago had 53 shootings thatkilled 16 people and New York City and Detroit combined had 46shootings that killed 10 people. Thomas says gun violence cannot be cured by more laws. Urban violence can be curbed by better schools and putting menback in the families as husbands and active fathers. He quoted Booker T. Washington, “He who lives outside the law is a slave. The free man is the man who lives within the law,whether that law be physical or the divine.” He also quoted Dr. Martin Luther King, “Our scientific power has outrun our spiritual power. We have guided missiles and mis guided men.” Cal Thomas concludes, “The fault for this lies in many places. The solution isn’t external but internal. No one can respect anotherperson’s life and property until he respects himself. And that respectcomes only with a spiritual awakening, which no politician has thepower to create.” –––––– E-cigarettes, safer than regular cigarettes, are becoming more popular. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson has recently introduced a bill thatwould require manufacturers to childproof vials of liquid nicotineused in these devices, writes Liz Crampton of the T ampa Bay Times. She notes the bottles have enticing names like Naked Peach, Juicy Juice and Banana Split, which might attract children who mis take them for candy. There have been over 1,500 calls nationwideto poison control centers regarding liquid nicotine exposure, on pace to double last year’s incidents. Liquid nicotine is very dangerous. –––––– A recent poll shows a close race for Florida governor, with Charlie Crist just ahead of Gov. Rick Scott who is closing the gap. Former governor Crist recently picked Miami-Dade Democratic Party leader Annette Taddeo to be his runningmate. She is a workingmother and wife who runs a small business. Scott has also picked a Hispanic runningmate from MiamiDade, Carlos Lopez-Cantera as his lieutenant governor. He was thecounty’s property appraiser after serving 8 years as a state represen tative. This race should be a humdinger. –––––– Dr. Elver Hodges of Wauchula will celebrate his 102nd birthday Sunday from 2 to 4 at the First United Methodist Church inWauchula. –––––– About 100 men attended a community brotherhood dinner Tuesday, July 15, at Florida’s First Assembly of God Church inWauchula. Speakers were Rev. Jim Davis, pastor of Oak Grove Bap tist Church; Bishop Wendell Smith, pastor of Faith Temple Churchof God in Wauchula; and Rev. Joe Butler, pastor of First BaptistChurch of Wauchula. A barbecue beef brisket dinner was prepared by the Hughes Brothers, Darin and Damon. Jim Davis spoke on being a Godly man in an ungodly world: walk with God, witness to others, and win your family. His Bibleverses were Gen.: 6:1 through 7:7. He said Noah walked with God.Davis said to have a close relationship with Jesus Christ, study God’sword, pray like crazy, and keep your eyes on Christ. Today’s Christian men need to do a better job of witnessing to the world, like Noah did, by living a Godly and separated life andsharing testimony. The first mission field is at home with your family. That can be done by a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, modeling godlylove at home, being the spiritual leader, practicing what you preach,spending time with family, and being real with your mistakes, deci sions and feelings. Admit when you make a mistake. Ask forgive ness. –––––– NBA superstar LeBron James has left the Miami Heat after four great years and is returning with his family to his Ohio roots to playfor the Cleveland Cavaliers, where he played for seven years. –––––– State Rep. Ben Albritton spoke to the Tiger Bay Club in Bartow on July 15, reported Ryan Little of the Lakeland Ledger. He gave a2014 legislative wrapup. He wants the legislature to pass a bill to capture more rainwater before it flows into the ocean and Gulf of Mexico since Florida isgrowing so rapidly. Conserving and wisely using water is the state’sNo. 1 issue, he said. A select committee representing large waterusers should be appointed. Albritton is still against expanding Medicaid in Florida, saying Florida taxpayers could be on the hook if federal tax dollars run outand that federal tax dollars are not free money but somebody’s taxmoney. He does not have a challenger in seeking his third two-yearterm this fall. He answered questions about LifeSync Technologies, which was received millions of dollars in economic development moneyfrom Hardee County to establish a cloud-based medical records stor age company meant to create 100 jobs, wrote Little. Key players areState Rep. Jamie Grant and Travis Bond. Albritton said he and hisbrother initially considered becoming minority owners but withdrewtheir interest. “The record will reflect that I never received a dime of that money,” said Rep. Albritton. Joe Albritton has also said he did notreceive any of the funds. The project so far has received $7.25 million in Ha rdee eco nomic development funds and had applied for $2 million more ifmatched by $5 million in private capital. This application is on holdas the state attorney’s office is investigating the situation. –––––– Singer Pat Boone is 80 and advertises for a company selling square-foot plots in the Holy Land. He once sang in Hardee Countyfor a Chamber of Commerce function. Gary and Sande Peterson in vited Boone. Jimmy Hanchey when he worked at radio stationsplayed Boone’s records. –––––– AARP reports drinking a glass of watermelon juice can relieve muscle soreness due to an amino acid called C-citrulline. –––––– Hardee County property owner Roy Brown says he has diffi culty renting some of his buildings, including the old five-and-dimestore on Main Street in Wauchula. He said taxes and fire assessmentsare too high. The cost of government keeps going up. He would like to see lower taxes and assessments and lower in surance costs so more buildings could be rented. –––––– Robert Duvall, 83, has been a good Hollywood actor for many years. AARP Magazine recently reported he takes a good nap everyday. His wife of 10 years is Luciana Pedraza, 42. Her father doesn’tknow whether to call him father or son. When he married his wife 10 years ago she would say, “What will it be like growing old together?” Duvall’s answer was, “I al ready am old.” –––––– State Rep. Ben Albritton wants farmers to be able to store water on their land and not be taxed as a producer, Florida Farm Bureaureports. One of his main interests as a legislator is the wise use ofwater in Florida. Several other prominent Florida leaders in the pasthave shared this view of water being a major challenge in the grow ing state. –––––– Agape Baptist Church in the Ocala area let Justin Castro do some work for community service hours in 2011. He poured gaso lines on some brush to burn. He wound up being burned over 30percent of his body. A lawsuit ensued, and recently a jury awarded him a verdict of $471,798, saying he was 17 percent negligent while the church orman who provided him gasoline was 83 percent at fault, reportedthe Lakeland Ledger. Major point: Do not use gasoline to start fire or throw on an ember. Use diesel fuel, charcoal lighter, little twigs or an old news paper instead. –––––– By 2021 pancreatic cancer is expected to edge past colorectal, breast and prostate cancer to become the No. 2 cancer killer behindlung cancer, predicts the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network. The pancreas is a 6-inch long flattened gland that aids digestion. It is near the liver. Obesity and diabetes are factors behind the riseof pancreatic cancers. The five-year survival rate is 6 percent. Only1 in 4 patients live a year, writes Marie McCullough of the Philadel phia Inquirer. The famous war on cancer was declared in 1972. Some 42 years later, the war is not close to being won, but 67 percent of all cancerpatients live 5 years, and 90 percent of patients with breast andprostate cancers–the most common–live 5 years. Notable recent deaths form pancreatic cancer are Steve Jobs, founder of Apple, and on a local level, Marshall Gough. Many healthexperts continue to advise regular exercise and a diet including a lotof fresh fruits and vegetables are important in trying to avoid cancerand heart disease, the nation’s No. 1 killer. –––––– Recently Jill Bleed of the Associated Press reported Gertrude Weaver of south Arkansas is the oldest confirmed living Americanat age 116. She lives in a nursing home in Camden about 100 milessouthwest of Little Rock. Misao Okawa of Japan is considered the oldest person in the world. She is also 116. Weaver and her husband had four children. A son, 93, is still alive. For her long life she credits “Trusting in the Lord, hard workand loving everybody.” Probably helping is living in the same state as former president Bill Clinton, who has given up artery-choking foods to become ba sically a vegan in recent years. After serving 8 years as president, in2016 will he become the first First Man? –––––– Al Warrington, a 1958 UF alumnus in business administration, had already donated $25 million to the university, had th College ofBusiness named after him, and is now going to donate another $75million to make him the first Gator $100 million dollar donor, an nounced UF president Bernie Machen.

Assistant State Attorney Lori Winstead counters that none ofManley’s victims is destitute andleft on the street, and all desireto see him punished. In fact, the only victim not heard from at the June 11 hear ing seemed to say as much as hetestified via telephone from Aus tria during the morning sessionof Monday’s hearing. At the June 11 hearing, the judge heard from the Under-wood Estate, the Esther Albrit-ton Trust and Evelyn Bailey forthe Bailey revocable and irrevo cable trusts. Arthur Womack Jr., of the Arthur Womack Trust, was notavailable for court. This time, testifying over a speaker phone, Womack agreedto Franklin’s contention that hehad stipulated he was due$54,760 in restitution. But then Womack asked to ex pand on his written stipulationaffidavit. Womack went on to tell the judge, “I think 100 percent resti tution to the people who havebeen wronged would be ideal.” Before Manley was spared a lengthy sentence, “there wouldhave to be “some significantrestitution,” Womack said. He then went on to describe his concept of “significant.”Womack told the court, “If hehas 10 percent, I don’t thinkthat’s significant. I think 50 per cent is significant. “This is not a small deal,” he continued. “If there’s hardly anymoney on the table, then I don’tthink there’s any point to it …There should be significantmoney before there’s any reduc tion of jail time.” Earlier, Franklin had told Stargel Manley has $68,500ready to disperse to his victims,and another $1,800 due to be re leased back to him from the in vestigation. At his June 11 hearing, the restitution amount presented toStargel was nearly $600,000. On Monday, the defense gave a figure of $588,221. The statecompiled a number of $484,684as it worked during a lunchbreak to add back in variouscredits and debits to each ac count.

Polk, 20, and Alexander Jackson Jr., 30, werestopped by Hardee County sher iff’s Dep. Steven Ahrens after heallegedly spotted them in a mov ing vehicle with a little child onthe woman’s lap. As Ahrens approached the car in the Amscot parking lot, he no ticed Polk, the passenger, mak ing “furtive movements” towardthe floorboard, sheriff’s Maj.Randy Dey said. In checking the driver, Jack son, the deputy found he had novalid driver’s license. It was, infact, revoked since 2012, Deycharged. Jackson was arrested for driv ing while license suspended orrevoked. In preparing to impound the vehicle, deputies told Polk herbelongings would either have tobe searched or towed along withthe car. She consented to asearch, Dey said. The major alleged Ahrens and Sgt. Lyle Hart found a purplefelt “Crown Royal” bag insidePolk’s purse. It reportedly heldan electric scale, a clear plasticbag of marijuana and a total of$1,471 in cash. The marijuana weighed in at 5.2 grams, according to Dey. Meanwhile, as Dep. Alice Simandl placed Jackson in herpatrol car for transport to theHardee County Jail, the otherdeputies inventoried his vehicleso that it would be ready to tow. They found, Dey alleged, a clear plastic bag of marijuanabetween the driver’s seat and thecenter console. There also was abox of plastic bags on the floor board behind the driver’s seat. Jackson allegedly admitted the marijuana was his. Dey saidit weighed 6.8 grams. Polk, who has listed addresses of 315 SR 62, Apt.

By MICHAEL KELLY#1'300=,7//A:.,?0 The Industrial Development Authority is considering movingfrom its Main Street office inWauchula to the currently under-utilized Tech River building itpurchased in 2012 to create atechnology park. Moving into the former Peace River Electric Coopera-tiveheadquarters on U.S. 17 wouldsave the organization more than$20,000 annually.

The Wauchula Community Redevelopment Agency andMain Street Wauchula Inc.,which share office space withthe IDA along with the Chamberof Commerce, reimburse theIDA $1,000 per month for theirspace. The Hardee County Chamber of Commerce does not payrent, but is responsible for theoffice supplies and copier ex penses under the currentarrangement.

July 31, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A The 2014 spiny lobster com mercial and recreational seasonopens next week. The first day to take the crus taceans is Wednesday, Aug. 6.The season runs through March31. Planning on catching some of these tasty shellfish? Here iswhat you need to know beforeyou go: 1.) No one wants a small lob ster for dinner. Make sure youcheck the size. Measuring de vices are required, and lobstersmust be measured while they arein the water. If the carapace (thebody, not the tail) length is notlarger than three inches, it mustbe left in the water. 2.) To protect the next gener ation and your future chances tohave lobster for dinner, harvestof egg-bearing females is pro hibited. Lobsters have hundredsof thousands of eggs that areeasily visible and attached underthe tail. While most lobstershave completed reproduction bythe start of the fishing season,finding lobsters with eggs is stillcommon in August. 3.) Bring a cooler big enough to hold the entire lobster. Spinylobsters must remain in wholecondition until they are broughtto shore. Also, do not take spiny lobster with any device thatmight puncture, penetrate orcrush its shell. 4.) Stick to the bag and pos session limits so there will beenough lobsters for all yourfriends and family. During theAug. 6-to March 31 regular sea son, the daily recreational bagand on-the-water possessionlimit is six spiny lobsters perperson. 5.) Know where you can go. Lobster harvest is always pro hibited in Everglades NationalPark, Dry Tortugas NationalPark, Biscayne Bay/Card SoundSpiny Lobster Sanct-uary, cer tain areas of John PennekampState Park, and no-take areas inthe Florida Keys National Ma rine Sanctuary. 6.) Have the proper paper work. A recreational saltwaterfishing license and a spiny lob ster permit are required to recre ationally harvest spiny lobstersunless you are exempt fromrecreational license re-quire ments. Information about theselicenses and permits is availableonline at MyFWC.-com/Li cense. 7.) Do double-duty while you are in the water and remove in vasive lionfish. This non-nativefish are often found in the same areas as spiny lobster, and theynegatively impact Florida’s na tive wildlife and habitat. Helpkeep the lionfish populationunder control by removingthem. If you plan to take lionfishwith a spear, be aware of no-spearing zones and alwayscheck with your local law en forcement agency before plan ning your spearfishing trips. 8.) Safety first. Divers, even those who wade in, should staywithin 300 feet of a properly dis played divers-down symbol (redwith a white diagonal stripe) ona flag or buoy when in openwater, and within 100 feet of aproperly displayed divers-downflag or buoy if on a river, inlet ornavigation channel. Boat opera tors must slow to idle speed ifthey need to travel within 300feet of a divers-down flag orbuoy in open water or 100 feetof one on a river, inlet or navi gational channel. Divers-down flags displayed on vessels must be at least 20inches by 24 inches, and a stiff ener is required to keep the flagunfurled. The flag must be dis played from the highest point ofthe vessel, must be visible fromall directions and must be dis played only when divers are inthe water. So when the divers are out of the water, don’t forgetto take it down. Divers-downsymbols towed by divers mustbe at least 12 inches by 12inches.

6A The Herald-Advocate, July 31, 2014 Dawson Cantu is my rodeo hero for this year! You may remember the fea ture article on him on the FrontPage of the June 19 edition ofThe Herald-Advocate, but insummary, for the 2013-14 sea son, Dawson competed in —and won — the Arcadia YouthRodeo Association, the TopHand Challenge of MyakkaCity, the newly-formed Okee-chobee Youth Rodeo Assoc-ia tion, and the Cinch FloridaJunior High School Rodeo As sociation, which is statewide.This resulted in 14 buckles andeight more trophy saddles forthis local 13-year-old. Well, we now have the results from the Cinch National JuniorHigh School Rodeo AssociationFinals, which were held at theIowa State Fairgrounds in DesMoines from June 22-26. This competition had more than 970 contestants from 41states, five Canadian provinces,and Australia, all being sixth-,seventhand eighth-graders. Dawson represented Florida in all five of his events: boysgoat-tying, tie-down (or calf)roping, chute doggin’, ribbonroping (with partner BrittaStrain of Davie), and as headerin the team roping (with heelingpartner Scott Martell of Arca dia). There are two rounds of com petition, in which everyonecompetes. Then only the Top 20come back for a third round,called the short round (or theshort go). Dawson made it to the short round in both chute doggin’ andcalf roping. He then won theshort round in chute doggin’ in2.39 seconds — all I can say is wow! (When dad Luke Cantutold me they had the video of it,I laughed, as there isn’t muchvideo in2.39 sec onds!) The win ners are de terminedfrom the to tals for allthree rounds, known as the aver age. Dawson’s awesome runin the short go placed him thirdin the average with a combinedtime of 11.21 seconds. Heplaced fourth in the short roundin calf roping with a time of12.07 seconds, landing him sec ond in the average with a com bined time of 37.36 seconds. Heand partner Britta Strain placed17th in the average in ribbonroping with a combined time of19.89 seconds. And these times gave him 1,125 points, good for sixthplace in the Boys All-Aroundcategory. With the Florida boysplacing 10th with 2,095 totalpoints, Dawson himself wonmore than half of these totalpoints. Coincidentally, the young man who won the All-Aroundtitle was Kal Fuller of Montana.Dawson and Kal were fellowcompetitors back in 2007 at theCombee Youth Rodeo up inLakeland. They became bestbuddies out in Iowa, entering ateam-roping jackpot, where theywalked away with a cash prize. After the National Junior High Finals, Dawson then com peted in the Roy Cooper JuniorSuper Looper roping competi tion in Decatur, Texas, on theFourth of July. Last year Dawson won his di vision of 12-and-under, but thisyear he moved up to the 13-15-year-old division. The age change didnot slow himdown, wherehe took sec ond placeamong the30-some con testants. When Dawson spends time rop ing with Jason Hanchey, at theBuck Daniels Ranch in Okee chobee, he has the opportunityto also learn how to train ropinghorses, those used by Hanchey’syounger brother, Shane (whocurrently holds the NFR title incalf roping). Dawson started his rodeo ca reer when he was 6 years old, in cluding roping.His dad tells the story aboutwhen they attended a ropingevent at Keith Cobb’s arena inAvon Park, back in 2007. Daw son was in the breakaway event,riding Pokey, who had the habitof stopping by bouncing on hisfront legs. This youngster caughtall three of his calves, but gottossed over Pokey’s head eachtime, landing in the dirt. Luke Cantu knew that any kid who could hit the ground threetimes and still get back on thehorse, wanting to do it again,had to have roping in his blood! And that he does. Congra-tu lations, Dawson, we are all sovery proud of you!Keep these “Bits,” boots andbridles riding. Let Kathy AnnGregg in on your events andachievements, and she’ll keepyou covered. Reach her atksleepyk@aol.com or 773-9459.Keep on riding, Cowboys andCowgirls!

The Hardee County Health Department has a budget of$26,400 this coming year for re pair and maintenance on the Nonprofits, Human Services Receive Nearly $1 Million By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate The first of two public budget hearings was held and approvedby the Hardee County SchoolBoard on Monday. The budget for 2014-15 shows decreases in both taxesand millage rates. The total budget has de creased by $404,300 to $60.6million. Tax millage saw a re duction of .196 of a mill, to7.186. Before the regular board meeting, the members held thebrief tentative budget hearingwhere members of the publicwere welcome to comment, al though none did. The final budget hearing to adopt both the budget and mill age rates will be on Thursday,Sept. 4, at 5:05 p.m. Some areas within the budget which decreased include federalprograms, from $6.8 million to$6.4 million; federal stimulus,from $221,537 to zero; federalRace to the Top grant monies,from $397,160 to $52,803; andcapital projects, which droppedby $114,000 to $1.8 million. However, the general fund within the budget increased byabout $618,000, rising from$47.4 million to $48.1 million.Meanwhile, the food serviceprogram also increased, from$3.7 million to $3.8 million. Anarea that remained the same wasprivate purposes (scholarships)at $8,133. The millage rate, which also decreased, is made up of fourparts. Of the four, three are de termined by the local SchoolBoard. All of those local rates re mained the same: “basic discre tionary” is at 0.748 mills, “votedfor operations” at 1.00 mills and“capital outlay” is at 0.500 mills. The fourth part, mandated and set by the state, was loweredfrom 5.134 to 4.938. The capital outlay tax is said to generate about $722,000. Ifapproved, the money will beused to reimburse the generalfund for maintenance, renova tion and repair expenses. The board also hopes to buy two new school buses, air-con ditioning equipment, computer-related items, electronic learningdevices and digital classroomequipment for schools through out the district. The final hearing on the budget and millage rates will bein the School Board meetingroom at 230 S. Florida Ave. inWauchula. School Board Approves Tentative 2014-15 Budget What plans should prudent consumers take with the trees intheir landscape during this hur ricane season? One of the greatest dangers to life and property during hurri canes is posed by falling treesand limbs. "Growing trees will 'catch' more wind and become heavier,so they are prone to increasedmechanical stresses, increasingthe chances of failure," explainsTchukki Andersen of the TreeCare Industry Association. "Preparing trees for a natural disaster is a must, and should bedone well in advance of thestorm. To help ease these dan gers, have a professional arboristevaluate your trees. Doing this will help you determine poten tial weaknesses and dangers." Look at your trees for the fol lowing warning signs: G,5>1?5:/;:@-/@C5@4@>11 branches. Trees may become en ergized when they are contactedby electric wires. G1-0;><->@5-88E-@@-/410 limbs hung up in the higherbranches that could fall andcause damage or injury.

8A The Herald-Advocate, July 31, 2014 There have been two reported cases in Florida this year of chil dren dying of heatstroke afterbeing left in cars. The Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehi cles is reminding everyone totake additional steps to ensurethat no child is left unattended ina vehicle this summer. Don’t be distracted when leaving your vehicle. Take a sec ond look in the back seat to en sure a child is not still strappedin a booster or car seat. Be aware of the passenger compartments of vehicles around yours as well. Getting into a car that has been sitting in the sun on a hotsummer day in Florida can beunbearable. The inside of a ve hicle can heat up by 20 degreesin just 10 minutes, and crackinga window open does little tokeep the vehicle cool. A child’s body temperature can rise three to five times fasterthan an adult’s, and heatstroke ina closed vehicle can occur whenthe temperature is as low as 57degrees outside. For the safetyof your children, never leave achild unattended in a vehicle, even for a short period of time. Florida law makes it a crimi nal offense to leave a child underthe age of 6 unattended in a ve hicle. Tips for preventing heatstroke deaths in vehicles: D!/?/;6/+?/+8B-236.>8+= tended in a vehicle.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, July 31, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate One of the hidden treasures in Wauchula has succumbed to theneed for “a few rules.” Occasional misuse by some visitors to the free park have re sulted in a dozen rules re-centlyapproved by the Wau-chula CityCommission. The city has anon-site manager to oversee thepark. Peace River Park is at 1322 E. Main Street, on the east limits ofWauchula just before the EastMain Street Bridge and acrossfrom Crews Riverside Parkwhich is, perhaps, better known. While the park is owned and maintained by the city, it offersfishing, hiking, exercise trailsand primitive camping at nocharge to its visitors. The park isopen from 7 a.m. until dusk. In listing rules of conduct at the park, it is noted that viola tions may result in being oustedfrom the park and not allowed toreturn. Most of the rules involve camping, which is in designatedareas only. No ropes or wiresshall be attached to trees orbuildings. Camp fires must bewithin provided fire rings.Searching for firewood that hasfallen from trees is acceptable.Cutting wood is not allowed. All camp sites must be kept neat and orderly, with trashplaced in the garbage cans ordumpsters that are provided. Thecamp sites must be left cleanupon departure. Camping is limited to 14 days. Extended reservations may be granted on a case-by-case basis,but any length of stay is notgrounds for an ad-verse posses sion claim. There are a few other rules, too. Alcoholic beverages, pro fanity, obscenity and use offirearms are not permitted. Chil dren are the responsibility of theparent or guardian at all times.Pets are welcome, but must beon a leash at all times. All petwaste must be cleaned up by thepet owner. The final two rules are: no feeding of wildlife at any timeand no use of motorized vehi cles, including all terrain vehi cles. Campers are asked to sign a form agreeing to the rules. Formore information on reserva tions or rules, contact the cityadministration office at 126 S.Seventh Ave. (ph. 773-3131). The 152-acre Peace River Park was purchased in March2000 with grant funding from the Florida Communities Trust.Along the Peace River, it is partof the 67-mile corridor pro claimed as the Peace RiverGreenway in 1995 by then-Gov.Lawton Chiles. The area is mixed hardwood floodplain/forested wetlands.The majority of the tract hasnever been significantly alteredor developed for agricultural orother land uses. It managed topreserve the mixed bottomlandhardwood forest, improve public access to the Peace River andprovide optimal wildlife habitat,outdoor recreation and environ mental education opportunities. The city hopes to obtain some funds from the CF Industries de velopment agreement formonies for education and recre ation. A committee is still work ing out criteria for use of the money, which will not comefrom Mosaic, which bought outCF last year. Loyal teacher Kayton Nedza offers park tours with view ofthe habitat and animals normallyseen. These are usually in theSpring, once a month for threeor four months. Enjoy Peace River Park, But Obey The Rules The park lies alongside a portion of the 67-mile Peace River Greenway. Small bridgewalks go from area to area over the marshyareas of the 152-acre park. To avoid damage to native habitat, a walkway leads visitors t o the main parking area. Feeding of wildlife is prohibited. COURTESY PHOTOS A sign along East Main Street notes the city-owned park, which is open from 7 a.m. to dusk for visitors. Camping is also permitted. ects.

Be A Red Cross Volunteer Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!Well, we have been getting a little rain and are thankful for it,and equally thankful we are notreceiving two or three inches ata time. We have gotten threeorseven-tenths at a time, andsometimes an inch. I was finally able to go to church last Sunday but still amhaving trouble talking. I alwaysget laryngitis when I have bron chitis or upper respiratory prob lems. Jane Kennedy has been in the local hospital. Her son an-nounced at church that the doc tor said she would probably bereleased Monday. Please prayfor her. Also, Mabel Williamsonwent to the doctor and had an ul trasound of her heart, and itshowed a blockage. Well, whenshe had a heart cath last Friday,there was no blockage. She, andour church are claiming an an swer to prayer. Husband Jamesis getting along well after hisknee surgery, but just a littleslow. Jimmy Morse was the preacher at Northside severalyears ago and now resides inFort Green. “They” say he isvery sick and in need of prayer. Ciara Smith is sick, which re quired Sherry Smith to misschurch and stay home with her. Granddaughter Paige turned thetreadmill up to 10 and, naturally,could not keep up, so she felland is sporting sore knees andlegs. Hopefully both of theseyoung ladies will be fit as a fid dle soon. B.J. Haney is walkingusing a cane. She twisted herknee and down she went and thisis the result. She said it is sup posed to be better soon, but allus “older” folks know her kneewill always hurt! Most everyone has heard of the Southern Gospel groupknown as “The Perrys.” Libbyis in the hospital with heartproblems and they have re-quested prayer. Her husband,Tracy, was in the hospital forseveral months but has finallygotten well enough to onceagain sing with the group. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the family of EdnaAlbritton. She was quite a ladyand will be missed. Before shegot down and in the nursinghome, you would see her at allthe sings they used to have at theRevell barn and other localplaces. Also, she was generouswith her pears as she had a treealways with branches breakingfrom the load of fruit. Her treewas the old-time sand pear, andI have looked for one to buy butto no avail. Thelma is her only surviving child. Thelma told me she andher mother were always close.Her brother and sister would fol low their dad and climb up thatold oak tree and jump into thecreek. Thelma never would! Both of Thelma’s siblings have already gone on to their re ward. I know from experience,it is a bad feeling to be the onlyone left from your immediatechildhood family. No oneknows how things were backthen. Thelma is blessed withfamily, children and grandchil dren. Another thing I have never seen but on Mrs. Edna’s coffinwas a pretty hand-quilted quilt.Thelma said a friend made it forher. It has embroidered on it neara special picture of a flower herloved one liked and the nameand date of birth and death. Shesaid she has this on her family’scoffin instead of the usual casketpiece. I think it is nice to havesomething different. I still remember Wilson Lee Revell had a beautiful cloth anda single red rose. Now why do Iremember things like that? We have a lot of talented peo ple in our church. Several whocan play the piano and severalwho can play the organ. Somechurches are limited to one ofeach if that lucky. We have an other talented duo, Alice FayeMoye and Barbara Cole. Theykeep flowers in the front of thechurch.

Orange St., Wauchula, 8:30 a.m. 7:31c Our Grandchildrens America I read somewhere a quote by President Harry Truman, Theres not a dimes worth of difference between the Democratic and Republican political parties. In the 1940s and 1950s, President Trumans statement was true. The American culture, as a whole, had the same Judeo/Christian moral and spiritual values. America was unconquerable. Americans stood together, fought together, and won together. God truly blessed America. Americans were prosperous. As the American culture moved into the 1960s, the 1933 Humanistic Manifesto had taken root. Led by educators John Dewey and Thomas Sowell, future teachers of America and educational administrators had been indoctrinated with atheistic ideals. By the 1970s and 1980s, schools had adopted the study of evolution (with no need for an intel ligent CreatorGod) as a science and the social engineers of America had started the attack of all Judeo/Christian values in every segment of American culturepublic property, businesses, and schools. Unfortunately, but as a natural result of the humanistic (atheistic) indoctrination and the spiritual dullness of many Christians, Americans could not recognize the approaching larger and more destructive enemy: moon-god worshipping. History will show that atheism, as a worldview, had been only a deflection for the greater enemy of the American culture, i.e., moon-god worshipping. In fact, atheism cannot survive as a major worldview because it cannot fill the spiritual cavity God put into every persons soul. However, atheism can be used as a blinder for Christians and non-Christians. Many American Christians have lost their discernment of spiritual truth and non-Christians never had it to lose. Therefore, the American culture, as we have enjoyed for 238 years, is closer to destruction than anyone can imagine. Americans are trading a free-choice, loving-God worldview for a sub missive, hate-filled, moon-god worldview. The premise for the life of a Christian is to freely love God and all people with all of ones being. The premise of the life of a moon-god worshiper is submission with the mandate to kill any person who refuses to submit to the com mands of their moon god. Actually, the moon-god faith is a politicallybased religion. In a political/religious environment, Americans will live with the fear of a religious, oppressive government. America, the Land of the Free, will cease to exist. Americans blindly gave it away. Hosea 4:6 will become a reality in America. My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. (NASB)In an interview, John Ashcroft, former United States Attorney Gen eral, succinctly and accurately described the difference of the two religions. [The Judeo/Christian] God sent His Son to die for you; [The moon god] sends your sons to die for him. A person might be wondering how a culture could move from a position of love for others to the extreme to kill anyone who disagrees with the commands of their god. The answer is simple. Once a culture loses the Judeo/Christian worldview, any worldview can be rational ized as proper. Its not too late to turn the moon-god movement back from America. If the professing Christians would seriously read Gods Holy Scripture (read through the Bible every year for several years) with guidance from the Holy Spirit (not deciding on ones own ideals what the Scripture is saying) and talking with and listening to God (through prayer), the moon-god worshiping movement would be blocked in America. Its our grandchildrens America. What kind of America do you want it to be? If we continue on the present path in America, the day will come when Americans (our grandchildren) will long for the Judeo/Christian life, but it will likely never come again. God will raise, and bless, another nation to be His light to the world.DeWayne Wyatt Wauchula 7:31c _______________________________ IN THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE TENTH JUDICIAL CIRCUIT IN AND FOR HARDEE COUNTY, FLORIDA CASE NO.: 252014CA000242 FREEDOM MORTGAGE CORPORATION, Plaintiff, VS.

Eachhas a pattern, with themost elaborate depict ing a cluster of roses.Are these collectible? —Emporia, Va. A: It was during the reign of Charles II in Britain thatdecorating butter became popu lar. In America, this practicethrived due in no small part tofarm wives who marked thehomemade butter they sold so itwould be readily identified astheir product. No two farms usedthe same mold in the samecounty or area. The more de tailed the pattern of a mold, themore expensive it can be. For ex ample, a rare Amish hexagonmold with intricate pattern ofacorns and oak leaves recentlysold for $650 at auction. Most,however, sell in the $50 to $75range. Q: When my dad returned from World War II, one of thefirst things he bought me was acard game set called "MickeyMouse Library of Games." Istill have the set, and eventhough no amount of moneywould tempt me to sell it, I nev ertheless wonder about its cur rent value. —Tom, Las Vegas A: I checked several price guides, and they seem to agreethat your set is worth in the $75to $200 range, depending ofcourse, on condition. Your set of six card games included"Donald Duck," "Pinoc chio," "Mickey Mouse,""Bambi," "The ThreeLittle Pigs" and "SnowWhite and the SevenDwarfs." It was issuedin 1946 and should havethe game, holder and in structions for each game. Q: I have a compote dish that I've been told was craftedby the Paden City Glass Com pany during the 1920s. Al though I have searched, I can'tfind anything about the glassor the company that made it. —Lucy, Las Cruces, N.M. A: The Paden Glass Company was established in Paden City,W.Va., in about 1916. During the1920s, the company expanded toinclude crystal and opaque glassin a variety of patterns and styles.I think your compote probablywas made during this period. In1949, the company operatedunder new management and pro duction was eventually auto mated to reduce costs. Thefactory closed permanently in1951.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O.

July 31, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3C DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 69. Two years ago, I had aheart attack followed by dou ble bypass surgery; two vesselson the back of my heart wereblocked. I had no symptoms.My doctor, family, friends andI were stunned. I was toohealthy to have been struck bya heart attack. I was at risk due to my male family members having heartissues. My father died of histhird heart attack at age 60. Ifollowed a heart-healthy life-style: low body fat, healthyweight, no smoking, no drink ing, no red meat, lots of exer cise indoors and out. Mycholesterol readings had al ways been in the good range. I am now on simvastatin and losartan daily. I regularly takemy blood pressure readings.Since my heart attack and mysurgery, I have followed thetherapy lifestyle diet in anAmerican Heart Associationpublication. A year after myheart attack and surgery, I hada treadmill stress test, and allwas well. I see my cardiologistevery six months and my pri mary doctor quarterly. What preys on my mind the most is whether or not plaqueis building up in any of myblood vessels, leading to a killer heart attack. I wish therewas a noninvasive means to atleast annually determine thehealth of my blood vessels. I donot want to wait for symptomsto occur. I want early detectionto prevent another heart at tack. — M.S. ANSWER: Your letter under scores that heart disease can hap pen even when you do every-thing right, that a family historyis a significant risk factor andthat heart attacks happen even inpeople with good blood choles terol. Your question is about a screening test for heart disease,to see whether there are block ages that need treatment beforeany symptoms develop. Thereare two kinds of tests: those thatlook at the anatomy of the heart,such as an angiogram or CT an giogram, and those that look atits function, such as a stress test. The problem with pictures of the blood vessels is that it's likelyyou have some blockages. How ever, small blockages actuallymay be more likely to cause aheart attack than big ones, sincethe smaller ones can rupture andcause a blood clot, which startsthe heart attack. A stress test,such as the treadmill ECHO you did, is better at showing if theheart is getting all the blood itneeds during exercise. My colleagues in cardiology and I recommend a good diet andexercise regimen, a statin, bloodpressure treatment such as whatyou are getting, daily low-doseaspirin and a periodic stress test.An angiogram would be consid ered with any new symptoms. The booklet on heart attacks, America's No. 1 killer, explainswhat happens, how they aretreated and how they areavoided.

NIACIN'S DARK SIDE We can add one more item to the list of things we thoughtwere good for us ... and nowknow probably aren't: niacin,aka vitamin B-3. Many of us with troublesome cholesterol levels have been onstatins to reduce the risk ofstroke or heart attack. Niacin hasbeen added to our list of go-todrugs for many years becausewhen combined with statins, it isknown to reduce bad (LDL)cholesterol and raise the level ofthe good (HDL) cholesterol. Sofar, so good. However, new research reported in The New EnglandJournal of Medicine has deter mined that: 1) statins alone do agood job of preventing strokesand heart attacks, and 2) just be cause niacin has helped folksachieve better LDL and HDLnumbers doesn't mean that ithelps to prevent strokes andheart attacks. Turns out it doesn't.Even worse, niacin can have its own set of side effects. Someare merely annoying (flushing,which can be offset by pairing niacin with laropiprant), whileothers are serious (gastrointesti nal problems, bleeding, rashesand ulcers). Those in the studywho took niacin were 32 percentmore likely to be diagnosed withdiabetes. One-third of partici pants dropped out because ofproblems caused by the niacin.An earlier clinical study was ac tually stopped when researchersfound there was no differencebetween the niacin and aplacebo, and discovered thesame side effects. If you've been prescribed niacin to go along with yourstatins for heart-attack or strokeprevention, talk to your doctorabout whether you should con tinue to use it. At the same time,don't try this on your own! Getmedical advice before eitherstarting or stopping therapeuticdoses of niacin.Matilda Charles regrets that shecannot personally answerreader questions, but will incor porate them into her columnwhenever possible.

July 31, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5C DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I have a cat and two budgies,and I am moving several statesaway. I plan to drive and bringall three with me. I'm worriedthat "Tiger" will stress out thebudgies, though. Can I keepthe peace between these pets? —A Reader, via email DEAR READER: One way, maybe the best way, to travelwith pets of different species isto keep them out of sight of oneanother, and under control. Tiger should be placed in a carrier with a favorite blanketand toys to keep him occupied.The birds should stay in theircage (or if necessary, a smallertravel cage). The change of loca tion and the car's motion couldbe stressors as well, so minimizetheir exposure by covering thecage while you're driving. And do not leave your pets alone in the car, even for a fewminutes, and even if the weather seems cool. I know I've repeatedthis advice all summer, but I seeincidents several times per weekon the news, so many ownersstill don't realize the danger. Thetemperature in a hot car can risevery quickly, even with the win dows opened a bit. So plan your trip carefully. At each rest stop, take the birds'cage outside and uncover it in ashady area so they can get somefresh air. Take Tiger's carrier out,or if he's a well-behaved cat, puthim on a leash (while he's still inthe car so he doesn't escape) andlet him explore a safe, shadyarea. If Tiger is a terror in the car — yowling or otherwise beingstressed — talk to his vet before hand about medicating him tokeep him calm during the jour ney.Send your questions or com ments to ask@pawscorner.com.

Q: I can't seem to get enough of "Falling Skies"!Can you tell me if it will beback next summer? —Dean P., via email A: "Falling Skies" will indeed return to TNT next summer towrap up its epic story during itsfifth (and final) season. Ten newepisodes in summer 2015 will tiea pretty (or not-so-pretty) bow onthe hit sci-fi drama, and I'm hop ing that all of our questions willbe answered. But, now that Ithink about it, I kind of hope allof our questions WON'T be an swered so there will be a reasonfor a future big-screen version ofthe series (like "Star Trek" and"The X-Files"). And speaking of hit dramas, TNT also has renewed two moreof its chart-topping summer se ries: Freshman drama "The LastShip" will be back for a 13-episode season two (up from a10-episode first season). Court room/crime drama "MajorCrimes" also has been renewedfor a fourth season, with a 15-episode order. Q: My mom told me that she heard my favorite book,"The Red Tent," is being madeinto a movie. Is that true? If so,can you tell me what you know about it? —Jessica G., Reno, Nevada A: Production began in May in Morocco on Lifetime's majortwo-night miniseries "The RedTent," which is based on thebest-selling novel by Anita Dia mant. For those unfamiliar withthe book, "The Red Tent" is thesweeping tale of Dinah, thedaughter of Leah and Jacob, whowas seen only in small glimpsesin the Old Testament. The minis eries will air later this year, andstars Minnie Driver, MorenaBaccarin, Rebecca Ferguson (asDinah), Iain Glen, Will Tudorand Debra Winger. The miniseries begins with Dinah's happy childhood spentinside the red tent, where onlythe women of her tribe are al lowed to gather and share the tra ditions and turmoil of ancientwomanhood. Told throughDinah's eyes, the film recountsthe story of her mothers Leah(Minnie), Rachel (Morena), Zil pah and Bilhah — the four wivesof Jacob (Iain) — and Jacob'scourtship of them. The saga con tinues as Dinah matures and ex periences an intense love thatsubsequently leads to a devastat ing loss, changing her and herfamily's lives forever. Debra por trays Rebecca, Jacob's mother,while Will stars as Joseph,Dinah's brother. Q: Do you have any news about "Vikings"? —Bob L. in Minnesota A: I do have some casting news: History announced that forseason three of the hit historicaldrama, Lothaire Bluteau willportray Emperor Charles ofFrance, a powerful man whoviews battling the Vikings asspiritual and earthly; Kevin Du rand will play the Wanderer, amysterious man who is not whathe seems; Mor gane Polanskihas been castas PrincessGisla, the ele gant, self-pos sesseddaughter ofEmperorCharles; and Ben Robson willplay Kalf, Lag-ertha's (KatherynWinnick) trusted second in com mand.Write to Cindy at King FeaturesWeekly Service, P.O.

Melons come in amany sizes, shapes, colors andflavors. Sweet, watery and cool ing, they're a gift of the summerharvest that quenches our thirstwith a food we can practicallydrink and eat at the same time! Melons prefer hot, dry days and cool evenings to produce thesugar that gives them their nec tarous flavor. Depending onwhere you live, a ripe, juicy,truly sweet melon may be a gift KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis of the harvest at your local gro cery store. While melons trans port well, they must be harvestedfor shipping while still green.Sometimes this works well, othertimes not, and it can be just an other case of falling for beautythat is only skin deep. When choosing melons at the store, press and smell the spotwhere the fruit was severed fromthe stem. It should give slightlyto the touch and exude a pleasantperfume. Almost all melons, ex cept watermelons, can be judgedthis way. Looking for a good water melon is a little more difficult. There is science behind the"thumping" of a watermelon totest for ripeness. A ripe melonwill give off a hollow sound,which indicates that the melonhas developed its water content.All melons should feel heavy fortheir size, a sign that they are full of juice. Locally grown melonsalso will have a flat, yellow spoton one side where it lay as itripened in the field. Melons are an ancient fruit, first cultivated in Asia and Africaover 4,000 years ago. From therethey were introduced to westernand northern Europe. Watermel ons in particular provided an im portant source of water toprimitive people, and it is be lieved that the first watermelonswere brought to the Americas byAfrican slaves. As a group, melons are a truly beneficial food. They are low incalories and high in potassium,as well as vitamins A and C.They also are a delicious sourceof fiber. Watermelons are high inlycopene, the pigment that givesthem that beautiful pinkish-redcolor. Lycopene has been shown to help prevent heart disease andsome cancers. Even though most melons are known for their sweetness, theirflavor melds well with savory in gredients: mixed with herbs andvinegars in salads, or paired withcured meats such as prosciuttoand salami for an appetizer. Fordessert, the options go from sim ply scooping the seeds from halfa cantaloupe and replacing itwith a dollop of ice cream or yo gurt, to combining melons withother fruits to serve with a pud ding or cream, or pureeing mel ons for sorbets and ices. My recipe for Jellin' Melons is an easy, kid-friendly dessert, andthe perfect way to showcase thebest of summer melons. JELLIN' MELONS Fresh or frozen pineapple, pa paya, kiwi, figs, guava and gin gerroot all contain enzymes thatprevent gelatin from setting, sonever use them in gelatin recipes.If you don't have strawberries onhand, you can use a cup of anycanned fruits or juices, since thecanning process kills this en zyme.1 large cantaloupe or honey dew melon1 package (3 ounces) straw berry-banana gelatin (or yourchoice of gelatin flavor)1 cup boiling water1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce1 cup sliced fresh strawberries,leaves and stems removed 1. Cut the melon in half lengthwise from bud to stemend; discard seeds. Cut a thinslice off the bottom of each halfso the melon sits level. Pat the in side of the melon dry and turn itmelon-side down on a papertowel to drain thoroughly. 2. In a large bowl, dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Stir inapplesauce and strawberries.Pour into melon halves. Coverwith plastic wrap and refrigerateovernight. 3. Just before serving, care fully slice each melon half intothree wedges. Any extra gelatincan be poured into a bowl, cov ered with plastic wrap andchilled until set. Makes 6 serv ings.Angela Shelf Medearis' newestcookbook is "The Kitchen Diva'sDiabetic Cookbook."

Q: Every year I have to deal with brown and dying grass,because the climate we live ingets so hot in the late summer.We also have water restrictionsto deal with. How can I keepmy lawn healthy? — Bryan in Norcross, Ga. A: Dealing with watering re strictions and drought conditionshas become a regular way of lifein many Southern states, and it'sespecially difficult for home owners who want a green, lushlawn during a prime time of yearfor outdoor parties and other ac tivities. Here are a few tips to make things easier on your lawn: E8-9?<+1/<99>=>919.//: by watering only once a week.Watering every day or two leadsto shallow roots that are muchless able to withstand drought.Your Southern lawn needs aboutan inch of water a week. Here's how to find out how long to run your sprinklers to getthat inch of water: During thenext permitted watering time,take five empty tuna or cat foodcans and set them on differentparts of the lawn. Run the sprin klers for 30 minutes, then recordthe depth of the water in eachcan. Add those depths togetherand divide by five. Then adjustyour watering time accordingly.For example, if you average ahalf inch of water in 30 minutes,you'll need to water for one hourto get an inch. E98>79A=> grass: A newly mowed lawn loses extra water through the cutgrass blades. Wait until yourlawn greens up again after rain orwatering.

If watering restrictions rou tinely impact your lawn, youmay need to take more drasticsteps. Consider replacing or re-seeding with drought-resistantvarieties. You also could re-land scape to reduce the size of thelawn, replacing much of it withdrought-resistant plants andshrubs.
