And it will not adjourn until a punishment is imposed, CircuitJudge John K. Stargel hasvowed. Michael D. Manley, of Wauchula, spent his 55th birth day in the county jail this weekas he awaits his fate nextWednesday in Hardee CircuitCourt. He faces up to 49 years inFlorida State Prison for 23counts of grand theft and moneylaundering. A hearing on June 11 to accept his guilty pleas to all chargesquickly evolved into a sentenc ing hearing, but failed to reach aconclusion. It was continued toJuly 28 but, again, no sentencewas levied. At issue is how much restitu tion is due Manleys victims andwhether he could ever pay it.The quoted amounts have variedfrom $485,000 to $600,000. Defense lawyer James R. Rusty Franklin previouslypresented a witness, business man Richard Dicks, who toldthe judge he would loan Manley$200,000 to help compensate hisvictims if Manley is not sent to prison. Franklin contended Manley should be free in order to workand earn money, which hewould put into a fund to reim burse his former clients. Assistant State Attorney Lori Winstead countered with victimtestimony that their need forrestitution did not outweigh theirdesire to see Manley punishedfor his actions. Meanwhile, Stargel continued the latest proceedings when itbecame clear neither the defensenor the prosecution was pre pared to offer definitive proof ofthe total amount due Manleysvictims. Further, the judge stated he wished to hear from an expertaccountant and from Manleyhimself when court reconvenes. And, finally, Stargel declared this third attempt at sentencingwould be the last. He saidWednesdays hearing will con tinue until it reaches its conclu sion even if it takes all dayand night. All agree Manley stole just under $1.2 million from fivetrust accounts belonging to fourclients. They cannot agree onhow much he already paid backto those accounts or what legiti mate accounting fees should beSee MANLEY 2A By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate The last teen to be arrested in the May 20 vandalism at Har-dee Senior High School has be come the first to be sentenced inHardee Circuit Court.

T he Herald-Advocate Hardee Countys Hometown Coverage &+&/(.-& rn Quality printing services at competitive prices! Dear Editor: Let me begin this letter with a simple allegory. The Americansand Russians decided to have atwo-horse race to determine whohad the fastest horses. The daycame for the race which theAmerican horse won. When reported in the Moscow newspaper Tass the headline read, American and Russians have horse race, Russian horsefinished second; American horsefinished next to last! Did Tass lie No. Did they tell the truth Yes. The true story however was not what was said but how it wastold. I personally feel this iswhat drives some of the rhetoricin our local paper ads and themotive of those saying it. Arethey lying probably not. Arethey being truthful partiallyso. However, in the telling theyuse half-truths, accusation andinnuendos. There are always two sides to every story. Each time electiontime draws near, as I see the can didate signs, hear the unoffi cial platforms in the localrestaurants and the talk on thestreet, I have ambivalentthoughts concerning the electionclaims. In Hardee County most, if not all, of the candidates are goodpeople. Some may overstatetheir qualifications but they areattempting to attract undecidedvoters. Others may relate expe rience which has nothing to dowith the office they are seekingor re-seeking. Others may relyon being hometown folks orlocals (read good ole boys ). Still others seek office with ahidden agenda in mind. Regard less of the motive(s) negative campaigns really turn me off! So, how does one decide who to vote in or out? I may not bethe sharpest tack in the box, butI personally use character as aguide. I ask myself which candi date will best represent me andHardee County. A number of years ago I at tended state-wide County Com missioner meetings,district-wide MPO meeting anda number of other meetingswhich were more than just localin nature. Hardee County fre quently was the butt of jokingbecause of some of our electedofficials. To my knowledge andexperience these people did agood job at their position butpresentation style, commentsand other communication beliedtheir job performance. The same thing is happening today. I am embarrassed all overagain for our county! If ourcounty and elected/appointed of ficials are so corrupt and this issuch a bad place to live, whydont the accusers move back toMiami, Naples or wherever theycame from? The question remains for whom do I cast my vote? I rec ommend voters examine thepast performance and characterof those seeking re-election. Ex amine the new candidates forcharacter and how well they willrepresent us if elected. Andlastly, seek the guidance of theAlmighty as you mark your bal lot. Thank you for an opportunity to express myself, for what itsworth! Donnie Autry Wauchula, Florida Letter To The Editor ("0"$2&01.-.+)2)$"+"-%)%"2&1 guilt on the felony charges.

After the vandalism was dis covered, Dep. Daniel Gibson,the schools resource officer, re viewed video footage of the in cident as captured by theschools surveillance cameras. Itshowed five vandals inside theschool. Sheriffs Maj. Randy Dey said rumors circulating around cam pus also were investigated, andsoon suspects were developed.Arrests followed shortly behind. The probe allegedly revealed that Harbarugh picked up theother suspects in his 2003Chevrolet Blazer, driving it tothe school and parking it in a cit rus grove on the west side of thecampus. The group then walked through a culvert and enteredschool property, Dey alleged.From there, they gained entryinto the gym through an openwindow in the weight room. Once inside, the vandalism ensued.

August 21, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A Beginning this fall, South Florida State College will offera Bioenergy Education Programto provide students with a foun dation in environmental sciencesand renewable energy. With the rising interest in green chemistry and sustainabil ity, and the escalating oil prices,bioenergy is on the forefront ofthe flourishing biofuels market.Biofuels are a sustainable en ergy source made from organicmaterials or recycled oils con verted into liquid fuels. SFSCs district of Hardee, Highlands, and DeSoto countieshas the ideal climate, soil com position, available agriculturalland, local infrastructure and po tential workforce to quicklyemerge as a thriving biofuel in dustry. While a number of universi ties provide advanced degrees inbiofuels and biomass produc tion, SFSC is focused on prepar ing individuals for technicianpositions. SFSCs unique Bioenergy Ed ucation Program is designed toproduce an educated workforcedesigned to meet industry de mands. It offers an Associate inScience degree in biofuels tech nology and biomass cultivation,industry certificates, and a dual-enrollment track for high-schoolstudents. The Biofuels Technology track prepares individuals towork in a biorefinery facility,and the Biomass Cultivationtrack prepares students to workin agricultural production offeedstock. The program will also provide ongoing continuing workforceeducation workshops and semi nars for professionals in the bio fuels industry to maintain andadvance their knowledge base. In recent years, the United States has begun to focus on al ternate sources of energy to curbits dependence on foreignproviders. Central Florida, withits warm, moist subtropical en vironment, is ideal for the pro duction of energy cane, sweetsorghum, and sugarcane plants upon which advancedbiofuel production relies. Com pared to corn-based methods,they produce a higher yield percultivated acre, incur lower pro duction costs, and have asmaller carbon footprint. The most common types of liquid biofuels are ethanol, an al cohol made from plant biomass,and biodiesel, a combination ofhydrocarbon chains with somesimilarities to petro diesels, butwithout the pollutants. What makes SFSCs pro gram so unique is that we arepreparing the technicians togrow feedstocks, plants or algaethat will be used for fuel produc tion, or produce biofuels,ethanol or biodiesel, from feed stocks, said Dr. Beth Burch,lead instructor of SFSCs Biofu els Education Program. Otherenergy-related programs may in clude a course or two on biofu els, but our curriculum isdesigned around the productionof biofuels from plant or algaefeedstocks. This program will benefit our region by preparing theworkers needed to staff the bio mass growing operations andfuel production facilities,Burch said. The jobs pay well,help our local economy, and canhave a positive impact on the en vironment, if developed and op erated carefully. These aregreen-collar jobs that are future-focused, high-tech, and whereone can contribute to improvingsociety. Students in the Bioenergy Ed ucation Program will be re quired to complete an industryinternship with businesses suchas biogas generation plants,feedstock growers or biofuelsproduction companies. After completion of the twoyear program, graduates can goon to earn a Bachelors Degreein a biofuels-related field suchas agricultural operations man agement, agricultural and bio logical engineering,environmental management inagriculture and natural re sources, chemical engineering,natural resources and sustain ability studies. The Bioenergy Education Program was funded by a$900,000 grant from the Na tional Science Foundation in2012. SFSC is one of a smallnumber of community and statecolleges across the United Statesto have been awarded an NSFgrant. For more on the Bioenergy Education Program, contact Dr.Beth Burch, lead instructor, at(863) 784-7230 or email@example.com.

School Contract A Done Deal South Florida State College is moving even more into the mod ern world with a new way forstudents to access course re sources and registration. Starting with this fall term, students can securely get infor mation on their smartphones ortablets or other mobile applica tions for Android, Blackberryand Apple devices. The colleges new mobile app, Panther Den D2L, will allowstudents to obtain informationon course content, the schoolcalendar, grades, discussionboards, quizzes, library and di rectory information, weather, thecolleges social media and cam pus maps. They can receive updated no tifications for updated grades,courses and campus news usingtheir own mobile devices, says acollege press release. The college reviewed several mobile application products andthe Desire2Learn Mobile Appli cation Campus Life was the onlyone that seamlessly integratedwith SFSCs learning manage ment system, said Dr. ChrisVan Der Kaay, chief informationofficer at the college. Mobile applications have demonstrated their ability to en gage students and facilitate bet ter communication with facultyand staff. It will provide a farmore convenient way for stu dents to participate in theirclasses via the colleges learningmanagement system, he contin ued. To get the app, students and staff must access their mobiledevices app store and search forSouth Florida State College,and then download the appl.Students can log into the mobileapp using their existing accountcredentials for Panther Centraland should be available on oraround Sept. 1. Many opportunities are available for students to engagewith content through a variety ofmedia, said Melanie Jackson,director of electronic learningfor the college. Twenty-firstcentury classrooms haveevolved, and this generation ofstudents prefer to use mobile de vices in their educational pur suits, she added. Jackson said faculty has had the ability to use mobile applica tion of D2L just as they wouldfrom their office computers.Now the colleges students canuse their own devices to com plete course assignments, take quizzes, access grades, commu nicate, research and connectwith the college from within themobile app. Research tells usthat students who are more en gaged in their courses have ahigher academic success rate,she concluded.

Or at least we are when it comes tocompleting challenging tasks.So says a Canadian study doneby Baycrest Center for GeriatricCare and a research group affil iated with the University ofToronto. This must have been a fun bit of research, pairing participantsat opposite ends of the age spec trum: Young adults aged 19-30were tested along with olderadults aged 60-82 to see howmemory works ... and when. Memory tests done two times during the day involved seeingand remembering pictures andword combinations, along withdistractions on the computerscreen. MRI tests were used atthe same time to see what partsof the brain were active and tosee if they correlate with theother results. Here's what researchers found out: During the afternoon, seniors were 10 percent more likely tobe distracted by the extra screeninformation and weren't com pletely engaged on the cognitivetasks. Researchers called it"idling," when the senior brains went into resting mode andweren't focused. Fast-forward the clock to morning, and seniors did muchbetter at ignoring the distrac tions, on par with the youngerparticipants, and focusing oncognitive tasks. The MRIsshowed this to be so, with otherareas of the brain activated. Here are just a few things that might be easier to accomplish inthe morning:I/:/<13163190==9I@/7<>CHH:3AI@7D7<5B3ABI@3/B7<5/A6=>>7<5:7AB4=@/ new recipe I#3/@<7<5/;CA71/:7

August 21, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9A By chance did my friends and family out there in paperville see the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still? Well, I have. I seen itsix times on the same day, and I still dont know who hit the brakes,do you? I really should not be kidding my mother-in-law Harpoon about riding around town on a broom, because that is really the only brushshes ever had with the law. My friend says, Truman, that must have been a bad dude you tangled with because he blacked and blued both of your eyes. I toldhim my eyes werent half bad, that he ought to see the other guysfists. They were bruised all over, both of em. When me and Sugar Possum first met, temporarily we were to tally intoxicated with each other. Unfortunately for me, Sugar Pos sum sobered up shortly thereafter. It has never been proven that a smart mouth is feeding off the fumes from an intellectual brain. Is it the Internal Revenue Service or the Infernal R evenue Serv ice? I am certainly not a slave to fashion. Those poor indignant souls who are so wrapped up in them selves rarely have enough wrappings to share with others. I do hopeyou understand. In order to further help my fellow man along lifes journey, I have recently begun a support group for the criminally insane.Crowbars and log chains would be greatly appreciated. Recently I was told by a political icon in Washington that wh en the first U.S. astronauts landed on the moon they had their rocketloaded down with fishing poles, reels and rods, and fishing tackle,because they heard the sea of tranquility was a pretty good fishinghole. I think I have wrote another country hit. The title of it is Just Because I Ask A Friend About Her, She Thinks Im Still Sheriff. Shakespeare once said, first to thine own self be true. Well, I tried that, but now me and myself are enemies for life. Thanks,Shakey Spear.

Jokes & Philosophies With A Little Dab Of Common Sense By Truman A. Thomas DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 75-plus-year-old female in ex cellent health. My doctor'scomment on my most recentannual physical test resultswas: "Great results on all tests.Excellent report." My ques tion: Is it necessary to have an other colonoscopy at my ageand with my good health. Mymother died of colon/rectalcancer at age 85 in 2002, andall family members were ad vised to have this procedure. My initial results were two or three polyps removed thatwere not the type that wouldrecur and were not cancerous.The recommended follow-upwas five years. The results ofthat exam showed no polyps,slight indication of diverticulo sis and no recommendation forfuture follow-up. My previous doctor has re tired, and I just received a let ter from his replacement that Iam due for another procedure.I am not inclined to do this atmy age, and considering the"all clear" reports of the pre vious exams and my generalgood health. I would appreci ate your thoughts and recom mendation. B.J.M. ANSWER: The odds are low that the colonoscopy would findsomething there, but there is stilla small chance, especially withyour mother having had coloncancer. Not having it is reason able. But since you seem to beotherwise healthy and can expecta longer life than average, Iwould still say to get it. In fact, Iwould encourage you to have it.The booklet on colon cancer pro vides useful information aboutthe causes, diagnosis (colonos-copy) and treatment of world'sthird most common type of can cer.

ROACH: My grandson, who is 8 years old,twitches in his sleep. He is tiredduring the day, but he sleepseight to 10 hours. While he issleeping, his body just jerks. Some nights are good andsome not. Do we need to ad dress this to the doctor? C.G.J. ANSWER: Muscle jerks or twitches at nighttime are normal.There is a very, very small riskthat this is a type of epilepsy, butif it is occurring only at night,and there is no family history ofepilepsy, it is almost certainlynormal. It may lessen as he getsolder, but is probably nothing toworry about. DEAR DR. ROACH: I am 68 and take seven to eight pillsdaily, including lisinopril,Caduet, a beta blocker, goutmedicine and Flomax. Myquestion is, Can I take them allat once in the morning, orshould they be spaced outthroughout the day? Does tak ing them all at once diminishtheir effectiveness? B.H. ANSWER: The medications you list are commonly taken to gether with no problems. How ever, your pharmacist is the best source for questions about druginteractions and when to takewhat. Although there are excel lent pharmacists at national chainstores, my patients generally re port a better relationship withpharmacists at smaller mom-and-pop pharmacies.Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual letters,but will incorporate them in thecolumn whenever possible.Readers may email questions toToYourGoodHealth@med.cor nell.edu.

Manymore will be slaughtered unlesssomeone intervenes. Non-Mus-lims are being killed for not con verting. Those doing the killingbelieve they are doing a servicefor their deity. Certainly there are many peace-loving people in Iraq. Buthow can any peace-loving per son in Iraq, or anywhere, sit anddo nothing while innocent men,women, and children are beingslaughtered? America was founded with the worldview that God createdeveryone equal. With this under standing of the value of eachperson, there's a need to protectlife from the moment of concep tion to the last breath. Peace-lov ing people cannot sit idle whileinnocent people are being de stroyed. Jihad has been witnessed in many nations including Amer-ica, as on 9/11. It was also seenat Fort Hood and at other loca tions, but the media has been re luctant to put the right label onit. For sure, it is terrorism, but they rarely share the worldviewmotivating the killings. Let's re member that Iran is gettingcloser to having an atomicweapon. Some say all deities are the same that would make allworldviews equal. Our Found-ers knew better. They acknowl edged our Lord and the Bibleexclusively. Our Lord tells us tolove one another, as He loved us.What a wonderful worldview. While we're focused on a worldview that protects every one, we don't want to forget ouryoung people and the marijuanaissue coming up on the Novem ber ballot in Florida. We alreadyhave a medical marijuana provi sion. Many leaders help us un derstand that Amendment 2 isreally about legalizing re-cre ational marijuana.
ZSEs Engaging First Day nrn 10A The Herald-Advocate, August 21, 2014
August 21, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11A Kellys Column By Jim My wife Jean and I on Friday evening, Aug. 7, rode on the Mur der Mystery Dinner Train aboard the Seminole Gulf Railway in FortMyers. the website is semgulf.com. There was a five-course dinner which we enjoyed. There were five actors who did a good job weaving the murder mystery of a richman stabbed in the heart with a letter opener. Four actors had motive. There are several different mysteries during the year. The train runs five nights a week, Wednesday through Sunday. There is a hotel package available at the nearby Marriott which in cludes a breakfast the next morning. Our total cost was $129 a per son. Fort Myers is about 90 minutes from Wauchula. The trainstation is located at 2805 Colonial Blvd. The murder mystery was entitled Royal Palm Noir. The cast included John Repa as William Bailey, a local private eye with adark history and reputation with the dames; Wende Gilmore as TaffyGrierdan, a gold digger and love interest of a private eye; Susan Dolan as Rhonda Carlson, a sultry singer for the Royal Palm SupperClub; Lew Phillips as Archibald Leech, a banker and friend of Wal ter Lunsford; and Ron Kelly as RW Lunsford, the neer-do-wellnephew of Walter Lunsford who was killed. The dinner trains were started in 1991 by the Fay family and Seminole Gulf Railway and have hosted over 500,000 patrons andpremiered over 100 new murder mystery productions. In 1885-86 the Florida Southern Railroad built the rail line from Arcadia to Punta Gorda. The Atlantic Coast Line (ACL) built therail line over the Caloosahatchee River into Fort Myers in 1903-04.The Fort Myers Southern Railway and ACL extended the railroadinto Bonita Springs in 1924 and to western Naples in 1927. For years ACL and Seaboard each had rail lines going to Naples. In 1967 theACL and Seaboard Air Line merged into one company, the SeaboardCoast Line. Duplicate tracks and stations were eliminated. By the late 1960s the golden age of railroad passenger service was over, replaced byairplanes, highways, automobiles and buses. SCL ended passengerservice in southwest Florida in 1971. In 1980 SCL and the ChessieSystem and other railroads formed CSX. The next day we had a guided tour of the Thomas A. Edison and Henry Ford Estate in Fort Myers at 2350 McGregor Blvd. Edi son was one of Americas most famous inventors who had over1,000 patents, including at least one for 65 consecutive years. Among his most famous inventions are the light blub and the phonograph. He had a winter home in Fort Myers. His close friendHenry Ford later had a winter home on the estate located on theCaloosahatchee. In Indian language Hatchee means River. The historic Edison and Ford winter estates are open year-round 9 to 5:30 but closed for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The websiteis edisonfordwinterestates.org. There are several hundred thousandvisitors annually. Ford only stayed in Fort Myers about two weeksa year. Edison-Ford is one of the nations top ten most visited historic sites. The top site if for Elvis Presley in Graceland, TN. There are science, history, arts and education programs, special events and activities. There are newly restored buildings, Edisonscaretaker house, the plant research laboratory, museum, gardens andfruit trees. Pilings remain from an old dock built into the river. Thereare poles in the rivers edge that used to support purple martinhouses that Edison used for mosquito control. When Ford first came to visit Edison in Fort Myers about 2,000 people gathered to welcome him. Many drove their Model Ts. Fordperfected the manufacturing assembly line, making cars affordableto the average person and doubling the daily wage from $2.50 to $5. Edisons inventions changed movies, film, lighting, electricity, sound and communications. The nations second largest banyan treeis there, the largest being in Hawaii. Edisons first wife died at age 29. His second wife Mina liked planting flowers and trees, such as oranges, limes, mangos, grape fruit and palms. Edison and Ford often rode a passenger train through Wauchula enroute to Fort Myers. They were close friends with tire manufac turer Harvey Firestone and writer/naturalist John B urroughs. The four held annual camping trips. Murder Mystery Dinner Train arrives on Aug. 7 in FortMyers. The Model A Ford was faster than a Model T and praisedby John Dillinger and Bonnie and Clyde.

First of all we believe the Lord Jesus protected us fromwhat could have been certaindeath. We walked away withsoreness and bruises. We would like to thank Deputy Fire Chief Dale Delea caes and the entire rescue crewfor taking great care of us. Wewere treated with respect anddignity, making sure we kneweverything that they were doing. We in Hardee County should be very proud of this group of professionals not only for thejob they so proudly do but thepride and personal selves theyput into it.

SincerelyJimmie and Catherine SimmonsLimestone Letter To The Editor Limestone Couple Gives Thanks toFire/Rescue COURTESY PHOTO 2002 Ford Explorer owned by Jimmie Simmons. Dear Editor: This is in response to the letter to the editors note. Mr.Kuhlman raises valid concernsabout phosphate mining thatshould be considered by HardeeCounty residents. What follows Mr. Kuhlmans letter sounds like it was writtenby a Mosaic employee. The Mo saic corporation has no doubtspent top dollar on thier PRcampaign. They have used envi ronmental speak in their beauti ful TV ads and billboards.Mining, as the editor says, is notpretty. But no billboards showreality. Mining regulations and re quired reclamation have comeinto effect because of the voicesopposing the irreparable damagemining creates and not becauseof the mining company. Floridas ecosystems are com plex and fragile. The editor goeson to list a variety of claims ofthe goodness of the company fixing the havoc they create.There is no balance betweenmining and Floridas ecosys tems. Natural systems are de stroyed; they will never be thesame. Something man-madetakes its place. The much cov eted phosphate is finite and soare the unique lands of centralFlorida. It is naive to think that this corporate giants number onegoal is anything else but to makemoney for itself and its stock holders: in essence, the bottomline. Thats why they exist. Con cessions and good PR are simplya cost of doing business. In closing, it concerns me also that Mr. Kuhlmans personalhistory and property informationare included as I do not see itsrelevance.

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, August 21, 2014 PAGE ONE By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate A man who wanted to grab money from registers at localstores has been arrested. Joseph Glenn Johnson, 51, of 700 E. Townsend St., Wau-chula, was arrested on Mondayby Wauchula Police Depart-ment Sgt. Chris LeConte follow ing investigation of severalsnatching at area businesses. Police are also looking for an other suspect in a similar eventat the Hess Store at Oak Streetand U.S. 17 on Sunday night,Aug. 10. Although they haveseveral leads, they are asking thepublics help in providing anyinformation. Tips which lead to an arrest could net a reward of up to$3,000. Information can be pro vided anonymously on the po lice department website or bygoing to the Heartland Crime-stoppers toll-free tip line 1-800-226-8477 (TIPS). According to WPD Chief John Eason, Johnson wascharged following two events. Inone, at Wauchula FamilyRestaurant, Johnson allegedlydistracted someone at the regis ter by claiming he had a take-outorder. When the person went tocheck on it, Johnson opened theregister, grabbed some moneyand ran. Eason said Johnson attempted a similar distraction at Gio-vannis Restaurant by saying therestroom needed immediate at tention. However, this time theattendant didnt leave the regis ter. When Johnson at-tempted toreach in the register to grabmoney, the till was slammed onhis hand and he hurriedly left. At a search of his home after his arrest, methamphetamineand drug paraphernalia wasfound, leading to additionalcharges against Johnson. From the Wauchula Restaurant event, he faces charges oflarceny theft, a felony. Theattempted robbery at Gio-vannis brought an additionalcharge of attempted theft, an ef fort to temporarily or perma nently deprive an owner of hismoney. With the possession of methamphetamine and posses sion of drug paraphernaliacharges, Johnsons bondsamounted to $3,000. He was re leased early Tuesday morning on bond. In regard to the Hess robbery, Eason said there are severalleads awaiting confirmationfrom the Florida Department ofLaw Enforcement processing ofevidence, including the storevideo. Eason said the call camein at 10:53 and an officer, whojust happened to be nearby, re sponded within 30 seconds. The video shows an older white male, 510 to 6 and 250pounds entered the store wear ing a hat, sunglasses, a red shirtand dark colored shorts and ap proached the clerk who was mopping the floor. He asked fortobacco products to get the reg ister opened, grabbed moneyand left. A officer with his canine part ner trailed the suspect for ablock before losing the scent. Itis believed the suspect entered awaiting vehicle. Eason cautions store employ ees to hit their panic alarm orcall E-911 and not to leave theregister unattended is someoneattempts to distract them. For any other information, call the police station at 773-3265.

There were 26 charges against 23 people; some found doing thesame thing twice. Clerks weregenerally not ar-rested at thescene. Affidavits were for warded to the State AttorneysOffice, which decided whatcharges were appropriate. Eason said shortly after the compliance checks were com pleted, a complaint was lodgedagainst Lt. Matthew Whatleyabout how it was handled. Videos and witness statementswere obtained. Following Florida Statute 112 outlining the police officers billof rights, Eason set up a Com plaint Review Panel, consistingof someone he named, someonenamed by the officer charged.Those two chose a third personfor the committee. After thor ough review, they exoneratedthe officer on a 3-0 vote. As a result, I have identified some areas in which we couldimprove procedures and will setthem in action, said the chief. He said the investigation began as the result of some par ents of alcohol sales to highschool students, especially fol lowing the breakup of a houseparty at which several teens fled.Numerous bottles of alcoholwere confiscated. He said the investigation was really compliance checks, not anenforcement issue. It was anopportunity to thank those whodid well and stop those who maynot have been careful in the saleof alcohol to minors. Its up tothe business company policywhat action they may takeagainst an employee, Easonadded.

4B The Herald-Advocate, August 21, 2014 Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort GreenEveryone knows that Sheriff Doyle Bryan went to his eternalhome last week and our sinceresympathy is extended to all thefamily. His son, Darrell, gave anoutstanding and very interestinghistory of his life. As we have discussed before, the only time you see some peo ple is at funerals or the visita tion. I saw Brenda Griffin andthat is not her married name butthe one I knew about in the longago past when working at Har-dee Memorial. Sherman had to go to the doc tor last Friday morning as he hadgotten the gout in addition topain from the surgery. We wentto the funeral of Doyle and thenSherman thought he could walkover to the cemetery, which isnot far. After walking and stand ing he got to weak to walk back.Joan and Jeff Maddox really dida good job in raising their onlychild, Todd. Todd saw and real ized Shermans condition andhelped him get to one of the fu neral chairs to sit down. He of fered to go get his car but I toldhim I could go get ours but as Iwas leaving his cousin Beverlysaw us and, after hugs, said theywould take us to our car as theirvehicle was right there! Got tosee family and experience goodfriends and family. I took a guava cobbler to the house Friday and it brought backmemories. Usually I have guavashells in the freezer but hadsome fresh guavas and sinceSherman is still incapacitatedand was just sitting around hegot the lovely task of peelingand removing the seeds. It brought back memories when Annette and RaymondKazen lived in Fort Green in arental house of Jane and EddieKennedy on John Gill Road.Annette is the one who showedme how to make the cobbler. Ofcourse, it took all day be-causeshe never used anything butfresh guavas and it does taketime to prepare them, and shewould never use a store boughtpiecrust so this took longer. Inthe end, it was worth all that ef fort when we all sat down to abig bowl of cobbler! Those aregood memories that we all have; something has to trigger ourmind. Everyone who attends Fort Green Baptist, and those whodont, need to mark their calen dar right now for our spring re vival in March. Scott Roper isgoing to preach and Scott usedto live down here but now livesin North Carolina. One fall Earland Mary Bargeron and Sher man and I were in NC and Earlwas reading one of the freebrochures that give all the inter esting things to do, when he no ticed about a mile from ourcampground Scott was having arevival. You can imagine thelook on his familys face whenwe all walked in. More goodmemories. I have been having some dif ficulty with my bleach doing ajob on the ugly frogs but I wastold recently to use householdammonia! Now that smellshould make anything not wantto stay around. Of course, I wastold to be careful or the do-gooders who love all animalswill be on my case. Lets justhope they dont read the Herald! Mr. Dewey Waters had a pretty little dachshund namedRusty. At Mr. Deweys deathRusty mourned and slept on hispillow for some time. Finally hetransferred all his love to BettyWaters but had to go through themourning period again whenBetty made her final trip. Hecried when they took her awayfrom home. Her great-grand daughter, Karson Goodwyn hadbeen spending the nights withher Nana and Rusty was used tosleeping with them. Rusty wentto live with and be Karsonsdog. Dogs do have feelings andloyalty. Hopefully Rusty willnever have to get used to anotherowner! We all love our dogs andLee Chancey told me theirdachshund had hernia surgerylast week. Jane Kennedy is under the weather still. I saw FlorenceHeath and Roxie the other dayand they said they read about herbeing in the hospital and hadthey known sooner they wouldhave gone to see her. Pleasepray for Jane.

August 21, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 School days, school daysDear old Golden Rule Days,Reading and Writing, and Arithmetic, Taught to the tune of a hickory stick, was usually sung bymany of us when we returned toschool in our younger years, justas we joyfully sang Schools out, schools out,The teacher let the monkeys out, at the end of that schoolyear. Everyone administration, teachers, staff and students allreturned to school this pastMonday, the 18th. For many theend of summer is only the begin ning of many new adventures those of making new friends,getting to know new teachers, orfor the teachers learning thenames of each of their students.For everyone, heres to a fantas tic 2014-2015 school year! In our community, with our small population, it is not un-usual to see someone that per haps you havent been in contactwith for quite awhile. We usu ally joke about seeing family atreunions, weddings or funerals,but more often since people aremore mobile we may meet themwhile shopping, at the doctorsoffice or just stopping to get gasfor our vehicles. This has hap pened to me several times overthe last two weeks. Bonnie Hinerman drives for our local community transporta tion services, so we normallyjust wave in passing. We wereable to spend a few minutes up dating on each of our familiesand ourselves several days ago.The same happened with Henri etta Benson, school bus driverand Virginia Belcher, former re ceptionist at the Hardee HealthDepartment, Jackie Gauger former Sun-day School class mate at Bow-ling Green FirstBaptist Church and several oth ers that just said Hi, how areyou?, or Hows everythinggoing? I really dont believelarger communities are asblessed as we are, not only in thegood times, but especially whenthere is a need, Hardee Countypeople step up and care for ourown. My family believes that I know everyone or that they arerelated to everyone in HardeeCounty, which sometimes isoverwhelming for them, when Itry to make the connections forthem. This is definitely not true,although after living here off andon for several years beginning in1960, and then returning toHardee County in 1975 whenmy husband, Jack, Sr., retiredfrom the Army, I do know manyof our locals, especially since Ihave done various volunteer ac tivities, as well as being em ployed at several businesses. I cast my early votes follow ing my party affiliation on Mon. the 11th. I was allowed to attendvoting poll worker training onTues, the 12th, with the condi tion that I might be able to workon our regular voting day onTues, the 26th, if there was aneed for a person to fill in.Please, everyone, make yourvote count! Being at the training session, I was able to spend just a fewmoments with our Supervisor ofElections, Jeff Ussery. Jeff hashad a rough time with his healthlately, but reassured me that heis well on the road to full recov ery. Please continue, as you havedone, to keep him in yourprayers. Elizabeth Greene, one of our former HSHS Blue Star Bri-gade percussion members, hasleft for college as have manyothers. She has become suchbeautiful person inside and outas she has allowed the Lord tolead her. She will be attending aBible college to become a mis sionary. I did not get the name ofher school, but if the family willgive me a call, I will try to getthe name and perhaps even hermailing address so if you chooseyou will be able to keep intouch. I have shared with you about my new fondness for the TampaBay Rays. The newest area inwhich they have touched me ishow after the games Joe Mad den tells of how they are sup porting the community bydesignating one group in a spe cial outreach. Another thing theRays can be proud of is that for every home run that the playersmake funds are donated to allowcancer victims to receive other wise care that would be unavail able. They also have interviewswith players about the gameswhich always seem to be posi tive. This and their personallives are brought to the publicletting us know more about eachplayer. Go Rays! Amanda Abbott again requests that anyone interested inparticipating in the newWomens Bible Study Ne hemiah: A Love That Never LetsGo, which will have twoclasses each week and began onSunday, Aug. 17th and on Wed.,the 20th, NOT the 29th at NewHope Baptist Church, pleasecontact her at (863) 245-5139. Last week when I was sending out birthday greetings, I over looked one special little fellow-my next door neighbor, LeviBowes, who turned five and hada really nice birthday party withfamily and friends. Happy Birth day, Little Man! I know many others of you are also celebrating your birthdaysand anniversaries or those ofyour family and friends. Godbless each of you now and in theyear that lies just ahead! I have heard of many prayer needs and many answeredprayers over the past few days.God is still on His Throne and infull control. We just need to re member to thank him for all Hehas done for us daily! Thatwill be it for this week! Takecare and God bless! DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I recently met a guy who waswalking his beautiful chocolateLab in the park several blocksaway. While petting his dog (Iasked permission first, ofcourse), I mentioned that Ihave a dog, too. He said,"Great! We should meet up atthe dog park sometime." Iwould love that, but myspaniel, "Jamey," is not well-behaved and doesn't play nicewith other dogs. I like this guy.What should I do? Single in Boston DEAR SINGLE: If you like the guy, be honest with him. Ex plain that Jamey doesn't socializewell with other dogs, and thatyou're nervous about how hewould fare at the dog park. Sug gest another neutral spot alongthis guy's walk route, such as acoffee shop or even just meet him at the park without Jameyand get to know his dog better.Most experienced dog ownersunderstand the frustration thatcan come with training and so cializing their pets, and will re spect your concerns with bring ing Jamey to a dog park. That'sbecause you're being a responsi ble owner. Now, should this first meeting blossom into additional meet-ups, and this guy wants to meetJamey, you decide when it's timeto introduce them. If you thinkJamey will behave when there isjust one other dog around, sug gest a meeting place where thereare few distractions and intro duce the dogs to each other,keeping both on leash the entiretime. Meantime, continue working with Jamey, emphasizing hisbasic obedience training. Onwalks, train him to stay at yourside even when passing otherdogs, and don't allow him to runahead or wander. Once you areconfident he will obey your com mands, begin socializing him toother dogs gradually.Send your questions or com ments to firstname.lastname@example.org. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

He is a fellowship-trained, board certified retina specialist with specific expertise in the treatments of vitreo-retinal diseases. He examines and treats patients with flashes and floaters, distortion of vis ion, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and retinal detachments.

8B The Herald-Advocate, August 21, 2014 The Classifieds cl1:12tfcI BUYHOUSES781-1062CALLBILLYHILLAT The Hardee County Chamber of Commerce has released theresponses from its local electioncandidate questionnaires. The chamber developed the questions to highlight the quali fications and positions of thecandidates for local office thatwould be most important tobusinesses. We appreciate the commit ment to local business shown by the candidates that chose to pro vide thoughtful responses, saidchamber president StevenSouthwell. The full text of the responsive questionnaires can be found onthe website www.hardeecc.com The chamber is grateful to the opportunity to provide the serv ice to its members and the com munity. Chamber Posting Candidate Questionnaires Q: While doing a quick vi sual scan of the roof, I noticeda couple of areas where the as phalt shingles were chipped oreven lifted a little. I didn't findany leaks in the attic. Do I needto completely replace theseshingles? Don C., via email A: If a shingle is chipped but mostly intact, and the surround ing shingles are OK, you can getaway with patching it. The repairmay last only a couple of sea sons, but it can protect your roofin the short term. To patch a shingle, take a spare shingle of the same material andcut it to the size of the damagedarea. Remove any dangling orjutting pieces from the damagedsection. Tack the new piece ofshingle into place using roofingcement. Shingles that are torn or buck led, missing, or areas with sev eral damaged shingles willbenefit more from replacementthan patching. Purchase replace ment shingles at the home-im provement store, along withrepair tools and supplies includ ing roofing cement, tack hammeror roofing-nail gun, pry bar andspare roofing nails. Check out the YouTube video titled "Replacing a DamagedRoof Shingle" for a quick-and-dirty primer on replacing shin gles. As you can see, the shingles above the damaged area need to be lifted slightly (be careful notto break them) so the roofingnails holding the damaged shin gle in place can be removed.Once the nails are removed,loosen and slide the damagedshingle downward and out. Slide the replacement shingle into the same spot. If holding theshingle in place is difficult, put acouple dots of roofing cement onthe underside just to hold it inplace while you secure it. Work your way back up, put ting new roofing nails near thesame spots that you removed theold ones from. Re-secure theloosened shingles above withnew nails. As always, remember that safety comes first when workingup on the roof. Always have apartner helping to steady the lad der, and use a safety line. Movealong the roof in a crouch, ratherthan standing up, which couldcause you to lose your balance.If you don't feel confident inworking at that height, contact aprofessional roofer to handle therepair. The National RoofingContractors Association can pro vide advice and guidance in find ing a contractor. HOME TIP: Check the weather forecast before startingroofing repairs: The materialsneed several days of dry, warmweather to cure completely.Send your questions or home tipsto email@example.com.

August 21, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B A A F F a a v v o o r r i i t t e e S S i i s s t t e e r r Among all the fruits and veg etables that are abundant in sum mer, there is a group of gourdsliterally named after the season.Summer squash is a colorfulfamily of yellow, patty pan, scal loped and zucchini squash thatflower prolifically and fruitthroughout the warm months. This particular clan got its name due to its short shelf life,which differs from the hard-skinned, long-lasting wintersquashes such as butternut oracorn. In essence, all summersquash are really just a hard-rindsquash that is picked in its imma ture state Squash gets its name from an Indian word, "askutasquash,"meaning raw or uncooked. It'sbelieved that Native Americanswere growing varieties of squashas one of their "Three Sisters"crops: a combination of corn,beans and squash grown togetherin a mound. This was to take ad vantage of their symbiotic rela tionship. The corn provided astructure on which the beanscould grow, the beans nourishedthe soil with nitrogen, and thesquash plant provided shade forthe planting bed. These indige nous people then introduced theplant to the early European set KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow tlers. But while squash as agroup has its roots firmly in theAmericas, zucchini, as we knowit now, was developed as a vari ety by the Italians, who eat it incountless preparations. In much of the country, most types of summer squash are rel atively easy to establish in thehome garden. Often, home gar deners find themselves over whelmed with a continuoussupply of the crop. Hence, thenumerous recipes for squash thisand zucchini that. And whilemost of us are familiar withcrook-neck squash or zucchini,summer is the time to try thelesser-known varieties that areavailable as well. Because the fruit of the sum mer squash grows fast once itstarts, a common mistake ofmany growers, homegrown andcommercially, is picking themtoo late. In their young state, stillrelatively small, the flesh andskin are tender, and the seeds un developed, yielding the most de licious fruit. So, when growingyour own squash, check yourplants daily once flowering be gins, and harvest the fruit early.When buying them at the store,choose the smallest specimenswith well-colored skin. Because summer squash has such a mild flavor, it lends itselfto many dishes, both savory andsweet. And while summer squashmost often is eaten cooked, freshtender squash is delicious inmany raw preparations as well.For an unusual way to preparesquash, try my recipe for Sum mer Squash with Sweet Corn andOrzo Pasta. Try using differenttypes of summer squash. It's de licious hot or cold!SUMMER SQUASH WITHORZO PASTA1 (16 ounce) box of orzo pasta4 summer squash (cousa,zephyr, costata romanesco andround zucchini)3 ears of sweet corn4 tablespoons olive oil3 green onions, green andwhite parts, root ends dis carded, chopped3 cloves of garlic, finelychopped1 teaspoon salt plus 1/2 table spoon more for the pasta water1 teaspoon black pepper1/4 teaspoon nutmeg1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper2 large tomatoes, dicedJuice of 1 large lemon1 bunch of fresh basil, tornShaved Parmesan cheese1. On high heat, cover a large potof water (per package directionsfor the orzo pasta) and bring to aboil. Meanwhile, rinse squashand trim off ends. Slice in half,lengthwise and then crosswiseinto half moons of the same size,so that they cook evenly. Setaside.2. Peel back corn husk and silkytassles. Pop husk off the cob anddiscard it. Place an ear of corn,cut side down, in a shallow bowl,in the circle of a Bundt cake pan,or on a cutting board. Hold itnear the top of the ear, and usinga sharp knife, start at the top and cut downward with a gentle saw ing motion; cut until all the cornis removed. Reserve the corncobs to place in pasta water formore corn flavor, if desired. 3. When pasta water comes toboil, add 1/2 tablespoon salt,pasta and the naked cobs to theboiling water. Cook, uncovered,per package directions.4. In a large saute pan onmedium-high heat, add two ta blespoons olive oil. Add onionand garlic, salt, pepper, nutmeg and cayenne pepper. Saute 2minutes. Add the squash andcorn. Saute until tender, about 5to 7 minutes. Turn off heat. 5. Drain the cooked pasta. In alarge bowl, mix pasta with thesquash mixture and toss with thetomatoes, lemon juice and re maining olive oil. Add additionalsalt and pepper, as needed.Sprinkle the basil leaves andParmesan on top.

10B The Herald-Advocate, August 21, 2014 Dear Editor: Ten years ago my family and I took cover in a closet in ourhome. The hurricane had turnedand headed straight for Wau-chula. I was not prepared forwhat I would see when I hurriedout to check on our town. Our community was devas tated by Hurricane Charley onAugust 13, 2004. It left us look ing like a warzone. Our countywas one of the hardest hit percapita. Did you notice we werebarely ever in the news? I al-ways believed that was becauseHardee County folks went towork immediately to take careof their own. We also receivedhelp and appreciated others will ingness to help our community. Lets take a look at those who helped Wauchula immediatelyfollowing the storm. There werethe personnel for the county andmunicipalities who worked tire lessly day and night. Who elsewas here to help? I am lookingback at the events as they are re lated to the City of Wauchula be cause this is where I wasinvolved during the aftermath ofthe storm. Prior to Hurricane Charley threatening Wauchula, LarryMartel and the crew at FreedomPipeline were working on theHighway 17 project. When thehurricane approached town theyhunkered down in their office onHighway 17. As soon as thestorm passed they were on theirloaders clearing streets to allowa vehicle to pass. They workedthroughout the night and thenext day to get our streets incondition for vehicles to travel. The Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office had deputiesalong with FDLE officers scat tered throughout the county giv ing assistance in every waypossible. There were many othercounty sheriff departments andother cities police departmentsthat sent officers on a rotationalbasis to help. The City of Key West sent two electrical line crews. Theydrove all during the night inorder to arrive and begin work ing first thing Saturday morning.The City of Homestead arrivedon Sunday. Several other munic ipalities came to our assistancethroughout the weeks that fol lowed. We all remember what a wel come sight it was when theGeorgia Power Crew rolled intotown with Charleys Angelswritten on their trucks. Theyused our community as theirbase as they worked with othersrebuilding over 700 miles ofmain transmission lines. How can we ever forget the Georgia Baptist Disaster ReliefTeam 95% volunteers? Theycame in early Sunday morningprepared to feed 22,000 peopletwo meals a day. Their first mealwas lunch on the day they ar rived. We all remember the feel ing of having one of their goodhot meals. They also had work crews who came to clean yards of treelimbs and other debris for theelderly. This group was an inspi ration and a gift from God. Theystayed until Hurricane Francisdecided to visit, and they had tomove on. The National Guard arrived on Sunday. They were here toprotect us during the night andto help at all the food distribu tion centers. The Forestry De-partment ran the fooddistribution centers. They all ranvery smoothly and were organ ized. How many people knew that the City of Plant City had moreemployees working in our com munity than our own city did?They were an answer to prayeras they gave assistance to ourgreat group of city employees.An anonymous citizen fromPlant City sent a semi tractor load of food to provide lunch tothe City of Wauchula employeesand the Plant City crew daily. Lieutenant Governor Toni Jennings flew in and met withmany of our business owners. Iknow we were all devastated,but I felt she brought hope to ourcommunity and gave the busi ness owners encouragement; shewas willing to help in any waypossible. She called weekly toget up-dates and to inquire aboutwhat we needed. Homestead sent a team here to visit with the city to advise us ofwhat to do and what not to do.They were experienced becauseof how Hurricane Andrew dev astated their community. I re member they brought cases ofBeanie Babies, and I sure couldnot figure that out. They saidgive the beanies to your officersand let them pass them out to thechildren. They will give the chil dren security and a smile. Theywere sure correct about that.Some-thing this simple andsmall truly made a difference inso many childrens lives. The Mennonites had crews who rotated here for months andtargeted the elderly to help gettheir homes repaired, yardscleaned and new roofs put on.There was a group of collegestudents who drove from Texasand spent several weeks helpingout in any way possible. Therewere numerous church groupsand civic organizations whocame to our aide throughout thethree storms that visited ourcommunity. Did you know a radio station from a small community outsideof Chattanooga, Tenn., decidedto adopt our city? They did notknow anything about Wauchula,but one morning on the air theymade a plea for supplies to send a truck full to our communityand by the end of the day filledthree semi trailers full. Bi-LoFoods volunteered to deliver allthe goods, and a district man ager drove one of the trucks. I know I have not mentioned all by name, and I am sure Ihave left some out because Icould go on forever about thepeople who came to help andgive us assistance. Now I wantto talk about our community.Watching neighbor helpingneighbor cleaning up theiryards, doing minor repairs totheir property, along with seeinghomes sharing generators, ice,water and food restored my faithin mankind. People at the distribution cen ters took only what they neededto make sure there was plenty.Many individuals took waterand food to those who came tohelp us and were always sayingthank you and sharing howmuch they appreciate them forhelping us. I remember standing on Main Street Saturday morning Aug.14th, with FEMA, and they toldme in a community like ours that68 percent of businesses wouldnever re-open. I replied, Youdont know us very well. We area community with a big heart, alot of determination, and we willcome back strong. Even though our community was a disaster and our lives werechanged in different ways, wewill never forget how we werehelped by so many in so manyways. The saying neighborshelping neighbors was love inaction and will always be re membered. Those who came to help our community and neighborsacross the county displayed thetrue meaning of mankind takingcare of one another. We truly are a blessed com munity. God Bless,David B.

All of the preseason books have been bought and ana lyzed. Fall camps are completed and preparations for the openinggames are underway. Time to get out the car flags and clean off theBBQ grill for the new season is upon us. Will FSU repeat? Will the Gators rebound? Can Willie Taggart bring USF back to the level Jim Leavitt left it? Was 2013 a fluke forUCF or will the Knights keep it up? Will the Bucs be better post-Schiano? The draft brought some good talent to the Ray Jay. Hope fully, the rebound will take the Buccaneers back to contention in2014. Time will tell but regardless, we are back to the best time ofthe year! 2014 will see the new-9 person committee choose the four teams for a playoff in college football. This will replace the contro versial BCS System. The question remains though, will we get thetop four teams in the playoff? or will it be politics as usual? The Playoff Committee is made up of nine diverse people from different walks of college football life. Jeff Long, Arkansas AD, isthe Chairman. Archie Manning of Ole Miss fame is also on the com mittee, score 2 votes for the SEC. Andrew Lucks dad, Oliver, is theWest Virginia AD. One vote Big 12. Clemsons AD gives the ACCone vote. The PAC 12 has USC AD Pat Haden but Condoleeza Riceis also on the committee Stanford influence? Then there is a for mer Big East Commissioner, an NCAA executive and one sports writer. Hopefully, this group comes up with a consensus. However,the BYUs, Boise St. Marshall and UCFs of the football world willbe excluded by the new Power 5 Conferences more than likely. Thelandscape looks like an eventual split by the Power 5. There arecertainly doubts that this is what is best for college football. Who will the four playoff teams be? ESPN says five teams have the best probabilities to finish unbeaten. FSU has the highestprobability. The Noles host Oklahoma St., Notre Dame and Florida That is a formidable slate for ranking purposes. The restof the schedule, though, has the Citadel and the others that make upthe All Cupcake Conference. If FSU wins those three at home itshould be clear sailing to the playoffs. The Oregon Ducks are picked second to go unbeaten. The Ducks host Michigan St the probable Big 10 Champion, along withStanford. Their trap game is at UCLA. Those are major obstaclesfor the Ducks. The PAC 10 should be very competitive in 2014. Marshall is the third most likely to finish unbeaten, according to ESPN. TheThundering Herd returns 59 letterman from a 10-win team that beatMaryland in the Military Bowl. QB Rakeem Cato is a Heisman Can didate. He has thrown for over 10,000 yards in his first three years.Add to that Marshall has the best center in college football in ChrisJasperse. He should win the Rimington Award, and then there isTommy Shuler who is looking for his third straight 100-catch seasonas Catos top receiver. Shuler is the probable Bile tnikoff Award win ner. No receiver in history has ever had 100 receptions in threestraight seasons. The ONLY team that can beat Marshall is Marshall.Avoid the on any given night and the Herd rolls unbeaten. Ohio St. and Oklahoma are ranked 4th and 5th by ESPN to go unbeaten. It is doubtful if either goes unbeaten. Ohio St. could finish9-3. The Sooners are ranked high based on the bowl win over Ala bama However, Oklahoma always seems to be overrated. It isdoubtful any Big 12 team will make the Top 4 based on the historyof beating each other during the regular season. There is more parityin the Big 12. Baylor could win the Big 12 when all is said and done.Bryce Petty is a Heisman Candidate following in the footsteps of RG 3 at Baylor. Now, here is the Swamis Top 20 teams for 2014.1. FSU Until someone dislodges them, the Noles led by a Heisman Winner have to be here. 2. Alabama 2013 ended with a bad taste in the mou ths of the Tide. They will Roll back. 3. Oregon Heisman Candidate QB Marcus Mariota leads the Quack Attack. 4. Auburn Win or lose the Iron Bowl, both Heart of Dixie teams make the Top 4. 5. South Carolina The Ole Ball Coach has one more great year! 6. Baylor Bears repeat as Big 12 Champions.7. UCLA Keep an eye on Westwood in 2014.8. Oklahoma Solid season and maybe better. They do have Baylor at home. 9. Michigan St. Spartans will again rely on defense and ball control to win the Big 10. 10. Marshall WE ARE MARSHALL echoes across a 14-0 record in 2014! 11. Stanford always a formidable running game and smart play. 12. LSU Tigers are always in the hunt.13. Ohio St. usual easy schedule makes a 10-win season probable. 14. Georgia Dawgs will be sniffing at a good season.15. Mississippi Rebels defense will keep them in most games. 16. Southern Cal Still a player in a tough Pac 10.17. Clemson Tigers still chasing FSU. 18. Florida Gators win one of Alabama, LSU, South Car olina or FSU to go 9-3. 19. Wisconsin Grind it out play defense, its always worked here. 20. UCF Defense returns 9 starters to win the AAC. Your Business Could Appear Here!Nancy Davis, Kim Reas or Trayce Daniels The Herald Advocate 773-3255 or www.TheHeraldAdvocate.com Know Whats Coming?

8C The Herald-Advocate, August 21, 2014 Q: Can you tell me about the actress who plays Lucia on"Graceland"? She looks famil iar to me. What else has shebeen on? Patrick J., via email A: Jamie Gray Hyder is per haps best known for playingDanielle, a werewolf in Alcide'spack, last sea son on "TrueBlood." Afterher "TB" stintended, shewent on to co-star on "Grace land" as LuciaSolano, who is just trying to livelife on the straight and narrow unlike her brother, Carlito, andthe rest of her family. I spokewith Jamie recently about hernew role, as well as what we canexpect as "Graceland" wraps upits second season on the USAnetwork. "Lucia wants to get a real job and be independent and prosper ous, in a legal way. She wants tobe able to live a normal life andhave normal relationships. Shedoesn't get to have friends orlovers, because those relation ships are constantly ruined by theantics of her brother and the restof her family. She's just strivingfor normalcy and is constantlybeing dragged through the mud." She did give me a little tease as to what to expect in the finale:"It's a two-part finale, and it'sdefinitely designed to leaveeveryone wanting more. I justgot done shooting it, and it's allvery fresh in my mind. I'll tellyou this, when I read the finale,I was shocked." Q: Is it true that there is going to be another "Termina tor" movie? Kalli R., Modesto, Calif. A: Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back on July 1, 2015 as the aforementioned Terminatorin "Terminator: Genisys." Thefifth installment of the futuristicaction series also stars EmiliaClarke (Daenerys Targaryen of"Game of Thrones") as SarahConnor, Jason Clarke (no rela tion to Emilia) as John Connor,and Jai Courtney (Eric in the"Divergent" trilogy) as KyleReese. I am curious as to thetimeline of this film, becauseEmilia and Jai are in their 20s,and Jason, who plays their son,John, is in his 40s. So, I'll guessthat some crisscrossing time-travel component definitely willplay a part in this movie (as in allthe "Terminator" films). Q: What has Adrien Brody been doing lately? Gina T., via email A: Next up for Adrien is star ring as the great magician-showman Henry Houdini in"Houdini," the History Channeloriginal miniseries, which airsSept. 1 and 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.The miniseries follows the epictales of Harry Houdini as heemerges as America's first bona-fide world-renowned superstar."Houdini" delves deep behindthe curtain into his life throughhis stunts, visions and mastery ofillusion. Q: Will my favorite summer series, "Suits," be back for an other season? Fallon F., via email A: USA's hit legal dramedy, which had its midseason finaleAug. 20, has indeed been re newed for a 16-episode fifth sea son. Also, look for the secondhalf of season four in spring2015.Write to Cindy at King FeaturesWeekly Service, P.O. Box536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475; or e-mail her at email@example.com.

The event wasat the Portland GolfClub in Oregon. Al though I have no plansto sell it, do you haveany idea of how muchit might be worth? immy, Lakewood, Colo. A: I contacted several golf collectors, and they seem toagree that your signed PGA pro gram could be worth as much as$1,500. Q: I have a copy of Life magazine dated March 1, 1937.I read a recent question in yourcolumn from a reader who hada copy of Time magazine from1951, which you claimed wasworth about $15. If his is worth$15, what is the value of theLife that I have? Florence, South Daytona Beach, Fla. A: The first issue of Henry Luce's Life appeared Nov. 23,1936. Most issues from 1937currently sell in the $15-$25range, depending on conditionand content. Keep in mind thatthis magazine had a press runeach week in the millions. As Ihave often written in this col umn, there are always exceptionsto every rule, especially when itcomes to antiques and col lectibles. Q: I have a Cola-Cola bench with iron arms, legs and frame. I would like to knowits value. Dorothy, Coventry, R.I. A: With the scant in formation you sent,your question is impos sible for me to answer. Ihave no way of deter mining the age or rarity of your bench. CocaCola items are, indeed, col lectible, but most of the itemsI've seen have been reproduc tions. You might contact theCoca-Cola Collectors Club,PMB 609, 4780 Ashford-Dun woody St. A, Atlanta, GA 30338;www.cocacolaclub.org.Q: I have 19 Edison DiamondDiscs, which I would like tosell. How do I go about doingthis? Mary, Deltona, Fla. A: Edison Diamond Discs are a little difficult to sell since theycan only be played on an Edisonmachine. Most of the Edisonrecords I've seen at shops and inmalls are priced in the $5-$10range. I suggest you contact an tiques shops in your area to seeif there is any interest.Write to Larry Cox in care ofKFWS, P.O.
