The concept: A person who has been chal lenged has two choices, either accept the dare and be doused with ice water then donate $10 to the ALS Association or reject the ice and fork over $100. Those who take the ice also get to challenge three others. Here, Sheriff Arnold Lanier accepts the challenge by County Commissioner Sue Birge. He then went on to nominate Maj. Randy Dey, who can be seen here holding the icy bucket. For more information on ALS and the Ice Bucket Challenge, see 6A CHILLY CHALLENGE By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Two incumbents won, one lost and one race is headed to arunoff. Results from Tuesday’s Primary Election showed victoriesfor District 2 Commissioner SueBirge and School Board District1 Paul Samuels. In Commission District 4, challenger RussellMelendy upset current Commis sioner Grady Johnson. The School Board District 4 competition ran close as results were announced on Tuesdayevening, with incumbent JanPlatt and challenger GarryMcWhorter alternating leads. Inthe end, McWhorter had a 1,286 to 1,275 lead, not enough for aclear victory. Although there may be a ma chine recount today (Thurs-day)at 1:30 p.m., the pair is headed for a runoff in the Nov. 4 Gen eral Election. The re-countcould be waived by Platt. For aclear victory either candidatewould have to have 1,363 votes, meaning McWhorter wouldneed 77 more than he has andPlatt would need 88. County Judge Jeff McKibben, chairman of the HardeeCounty Canvassing Board, metwith fellow members Commis-sion Chairman Rick Knight andSupervisor of Elections JeffUssery, along with county attor ney Ken Evers and WauchulaCity Manager Terry Atchleywho was there because of theWauchula Commission election. McKibben explained that nor mally Florida Statutes 102-141(7) would apply where someonehas to win by one-halfSee BIRGE 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate The very crucial completion of months of work ends in a se ries of public budget hearingscoming up. Between Sept. 2 and Sept. 23, all the local entities will holdhearings so folks can review thework and ask any questions.Each has two public hearings,which are held in their usualmeeting place. The HardeeCounty School Board, whosefiscal year begins July 1, has al ready had its first public hearing. The series begins with a Bowling Green budget work shop on Tuesday, Sept. 2 at 5:30p.m. The School Board’s final public hearing is next Thursday,Sept. 4, at 5:05 p.m. There are three tentative or first public hearings on Mon-day, Sept. 8. The county In-di gent Board (listed as Health ontax billings) is at 5:30 p.m. inCommission Chambers.Wauchula’s and Bowling Greenfirst hearings are both at 6 p.m. The first Hardee County Commission public budget hear ing is Tuesday, Sept. 9, at 6 p.m. Zolfo Springs will hold its first public hearing on Monday,Sept. 15, at 6 p.m. The Indigent Board will have its final public hearing on Tues day, Sept. 16 at 5:30 p.m. incommission chambers.

Wauchula’s is at 5:05p.m., and both Bowling Greenand Zolfo Springs will holdtheirs at 6 p.m. The final budget hearing is for the County Commission, setfor Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 6 p.m. By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate It was one of the closest mu nicipal elections in years. Challenger Sherri Thornton Albritton, 52, claimed Seat 6 onthe Wauchula City Commision,replacing John D. Freeman, 49,who has served one term andwas mayor pro tem or vicemayor. The race was dead even, 145145, after the early voting andabsentee ballots were counted.Freeman took Precincts 6 and12, but Albritton’s heavier vot ing in Precincts 4 and 10 madethe difference. Albritton won the close race 238-225. She needed only athree-vote margin to win andSee ALBRITTON 3A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate There will be a Bowling Green election on Sept. 30. The ballot decision will be be tween two candidates for Seat 3on the Bowling Green CityCommission, Charles Dix-onand Herbert C. “Cliff” Lunn Jr. There is no contest for Seat 1, as incumbent Steven Spinks wasthe only candidate for that seatwhen the qualifying periodended on Friday afternoon. Dixon and Lunn are vying for the seat currently held by StuartDurastanti, who chose not to runagain after two terms on thecommission. Spinks was up for election as he had been appointed to fill aseat vacated during the year byRandy Mink, and the city’s char ter required his seat to be deter mined by voters at the nextavailable election. Spinks and the winner of the Sept. 30 election will join citycommissioners Richard Barone,Sam Fite and ChairpersonShirley Tucker at the table forthe monthly meetings, which areheld on the second Tuesday ofeach month at 6:30 p.m. The commission meets at City Hall, 104 E. Main St. By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Want to go back in time?It’s possible to do so just by stepping into the Historic Wau-chula City Hall Auditorium nextThursday, Sept. 4, for a specialperformance by figures fromFlorida’s past. History will come alive in what is a two-part event, begin ning at the Wauchula TrainDepot and ending in the audito rium a block away. Main Street Wauchula Inc. is bringing the Florida HumanitiesCouncil program “Dreamers &Schemers: An Evening withGreat Floridians” to Hardee County, thanks to the support ofPeace River Electric Coopera-tive, the First National Bank ofWauchula and Dr. Barbara Carl ton. Before the show, those who have purchased the two-activitytickets can attend a reception atthe depot, where they will visitwith friends and neighbors whileenjoying drinks and heavy horsd’oeuvres provided by localrestaurants. While mingling, these ticket holders will have a chance tomeet — via portrayal — specialguests Eli and Priscilla English,two of Wauchula’s earliest set tlers and once the city’s name sake. After the reception, guests will head over to the HistoricWauchula City Hall Auditori-um, where they will see portray als of three other famedFloridians in the performance of“Dreamers & Schemers.” One of those Floridians is Pedro Mendez de Aviles, wholived in the 16th century. He wasa Spanish admiral and was thefounder of St. Augustine. Although famous for found ing St. Augustine and eliminat ing French Huguenots atthen-Fort Caroline, which isnear today’s city of Jacksonville,his true motivation to come to the area was to find his ship wrecked son. Jacob Summerlin, also known as “the King of theCrackers,” learned to crack acow whip by the age of 7. Helived during the 19th century. Summerlin is rumored to be the first baby born in Floridaafter it ceded from Spain. Byage 40, he had a herd of over15,000 cattle. He became one ofthe richest men in the state. Zora Neale Hurston lived from 1891 to 1960 and is con sidered by many to be Florida'smost famous writer. She is bestknown for “Their Eyes WereSee SHOW 3A

Kelly’s Column By Jim A balanced forum on the medical marijuana amendment will be held Thursday, Aug. 28, at 6 p.m. at the auditorium of the LoisCowles Harrison School for the Visual and Performing Arts in Lake land at 750 Hollingsworth Road. The panel includes Polk Sheriff Grady Judd, Orlando attorney John Morgan, psychologist Jeffrey Reddout, stockbroker IrvinRosenfeld, Dr. Sergio Seoane, and Jessica Spencer, director of theVote No on Amendment 2. The forum is sponsored by the Ledger. –––––– The Hardee High Wildcat football lost to Auburndale 49-27 last Friday in the Kickoff Classic and this Friday will play at Tampa Je suit at 7:30. The Cats need to improve their defense but showed astrong running game with Keyonte Holley and Parker Carlton. TheBloodhounds had three fast backs who each gained over 100 yardsrushing. –––––– The Florida Humanities Council will present “Dreamers and Schemers: An Evening With Great Floridians” on Thursday, Sept.4, at the historic Wauchula City Auditorium at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $10. For the show plus the reception at 5:30 p.m. at the historic train depot, the cost is $25. For more information call 767-0330. –––––– The U.S. Census Bureau reports the following populations for Hardee County since 1960: 1960 12,3701970 14,8891980 19,3791990 19,4992000 26,9382010 27,7312013 27,519Florida’s population in 1960 was 4.95 million and in 2013, 19.5 million. The figures show a big population growth in Hardee between 1990 and 2000 but a population loss of 212 between 2010 and 2013.Between 2000 and 2010, the county’s annual growth was 79.3 peo ple, the Census data shows. Overall, since 1960 Hardee’s population has more than doubled and the state’s population has increased five-fold. Florida is one ofthe fastest growing states in the nation. Hardee’s figures do not include part-time residents, and there are a lot of them as evidenced by our many RV parks and temporaryagricultural laborers. However, the slow growth between 2000 and 2010 and the neg ative growth from 2010 to 2013 deserves a hard look by variouslocal experts and powers-that-be. Too much growth is cumbersome, but negative growth is not good for the local economy. –––––– In the last 20 years Florida’s citrus acreage has declined from 800,000 acres to 500,000 acres. Florida has about 60 million citrustrees, wrote Keith Morelli of the Tampa Tribune on Aug. 25. Florida Citrus Mutual executive director Mike Sparks said about 135,000 grove acres have been abandoned because of the cit rus greening disease. About $125 million in taxes is expected to bespent on citrus greening within the next five years. Some of the abandoned citrus acreage is going to vegetables, cattle, peaches and development. The Florida orange crop has de clined from about 240 million boxes to around 100 million boxes,while nationwide consumption of orange juice has declined in 12 ofthe past 13 years. OJ remains a delicious and wholesome beverage,but prices have gone up. –––––– Violet Stoever of Winter Haven lived to be 106 years. She nev er married or had children and had a strong religious faith, wrote An drea Calcano Cruz of the Lakeland Ledger. She was a friend to many people. –––––– Fort Green native Amy Davis Brown, who lives with her family in Defuniak Springs, recently wrote of her memory of the hurricanesin 2004: “10 year anniversary of Charley. I had never seen such dev astation nor the resilience of people. Amid the destruction and heatand loss of power for weeks on end, we still were able to get a news paper out with important information and resources to our commu nity. I was proud and honored to be a part of The Herald-Advocateteam. Hardee County folks, you have a treasure in that newspaper.” –––––– Joyce Cook of Wauchula recently wrote this piece on unity:“Have you ever seen the clouds kiss flowing together under Heaven’s mist ... what a bliss ... of the birds flying together into onecall. Remember the old saying, birds of a feather flock together.Truly meaning in this season, working together for one purpose, onecause. That’s a call to unity. All working together under God’sHeaven for one true cause that truth and righteousness will reign inthe United State of America again. “Arise citizens! Get to the polls and let’s see this nation stand tall as one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice forall.” Ps. 133:1 “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!” Ecc. 3:17 “God shall judge the righteous and the wicked: For there is a time for every purpose and for every work.” –––––– Florida is one of 24 states that chose not to accept expanded Medicaid funding from the federal government. In Florida thiswould have added $66.1 billion in federal funds between now and2022, costing the state $5.4 billion and allowing about 1 millionFloridians to receive Medicaid, reported Lloyd Dunkelberger of theLakeland Ledger. Gov. Rick Scott would support the measure if no state funds were required. Texas, another Republican-controlled state, also hasrefused the Medicaid expansion, which would have added to the na tional debt. –––––– A Wauchula resident has written this letter about mosquito con trol spraying: “For the last several weeks the ‘bug truck’ has broken up two outdoor get-togethers. Friday around 9 p.m. seems to be the favorite time for the insecticide vehicle to come down our street and blowits mist! On one occasion I brought both kids in for a bath. Theywere playing under a rather bright streetlight when the truck and itsmosquito-killing spray ungulfed all the kids playing in the area. “Friends over at the house will not usually stay and eat food amidst a sprayed yard. Everything has to be bagged up and thrownout. Last year the bug truck sprayed after 2 a.m. Now the streets be tween Florida Ave. to Ohio Ave. are hit between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.,with Friday, Saturday and Sunday being the worst days! No one willsatisfactorily explain why when I call the city or the county! If TheHerald-Advocate would please investigate, we thank you. Signed,it could be your street and children.” It certainly seems like the spraying could be done late at night instead of 9 p.m. –––––– From the Lions’ Code of Ethics: “To aid others by giving my sympathy to those in distress, my aid to the weak, and my substanceto the needy, to be careful with my criticism and liberal with mypraise; to build up and not destroy.” The annual Wauchula Lions Club BBQ will be Friday, Nov. 7, just south of Wauchula State Bank at the old Pee Wee Grimes s ervice station. The to-go dinners of ribs, corn, baked beans and a cookiewill be available from 5 to 7 p.m. The Lions Club through Sevigny and Associates Eye Care on Aug. 15 performed 60 free vision screenings for back-to-school.This was the sixth annual BTS vision screening. Last year there were43 eye exams. Dr. Mark Sevigny said a good healthy diet plus exercise help prevent diabetes which can cause vision loss. “Unfortunately, un healthy foods often cost less than fresh fruits and vegetables.” –––––– U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, 44, the GOP VP candidate in the 2012 election, was recently profiled in Parade Magazine. The Wisconsin congressman is married with three children, 14, 13 and 11, and has been mentioned as a presidential candidate in2016. He said the “status quo isn’t working. We need to reform ourpoverty programs. We’re going to have a debt crisis in this countryif we keep spending money we don’t have. That’s just being honestwith people, and a lot of folks don’t want to hear that.” On weekends he often makes pancakes for breakfast for his wife and kids. They go to Sunday morning Mass and if the childrenare good they go to Dunkin’ Donuts afterwards. The family likes tohunt, and two of the children killed a deer this past season. Ryansaid he and Mitt Romney knew in great detail what the first 200 daysof their adminstration would look like if they won the election. –––––– In the AP pre-season college football poll, defending national champions FSU in ranked No. 1, UCF No. 26, UF No. 27, andMiami No. 39. South Carolina is ranked No. 9 and is head coachedby former Gator star and ball coach Steve Spurrier. BIRGEContinued From 1A No SeriousInjury InRollover Hardee County Fire-Rescue Station 1 units responded to asingle-vehicle crash on McDon-ald Road early Friday morning. Crews arrived at the scene of the 8:17 a.m. wreck to find asport utility vehicle rolled overonto its driver’s side, with thedriver’s lower leg trapped underthe vehicle. Engine 1’s crew set up air-lift bags to raise the vehicle off thepatient, while Rescue 1’s crew was rendering aid to the patientinside the vehicle. Lt. Bob Devereaux placed airlift bags under the vehicle whileFF/PM Chris Campbell was in side of the vehicle treating thepatient. Then, FF/PM BillReschke and FF/EMT JoseIbanez operated the lift bags tomove the SUV and free thedriver, as FF/EMT Ken Fritztalked with him during theprocess. The patient was removed within five minutes with no se rious injuries and was groundtransported to Florida HospitalWauchula. No crash report was available from the Florida Highway Pa trol. of one percent. Since this is anon-partisan race, the rule thatapplies is that a candidate has towin with 50 percent of the voteplus one, meaning the 1,363votes. Since it is unlikely thatwould occur on a recount of the2,725 votes in this contest, McKibben said there was a five-day span in which to holdthe recount, and it was tenta tively set for today. (McKibben advised Wednesday morning that Platt waivedher right to a machine recount). Birge won her race with 906 votes against opponents DanielGraham, with 199, and JudyWilson, with 585. “I feel grati fied and humbled. The peoplehave spoken. Let’s move on, “said Birge on Wednesday morn ing. She will continue to theGeneral Election against Dem-ocrat opponent Steven A. Plum-mer II. Melendy won 1,080 to 608 over incumbent Johnson. Me-lendy goes on to the Nov. 4 elec tion against Democrat opponentAllen L. Ellison. Reached Wednesday morning, Melendy was upbeat. “I amhumbled and thankful for theopportunity to serve. My familyand I are grateful for the amaz ing help and support we have re ceived. “There’s a lot of work to be done,” said Melendy of his up coming General Election chal lenge. “I look forward tocontinue to meet people in thecounty and discuss Hardee’sbright future. I am eager to serveand gain the voters’ trust.” Samuels will be the only win ner not continuing to campaignwith a clear 1,707-1,051 victoryover challenger Andrew Smithin the non-partisan School Board District 1 race. Over half of the voters opted for early or absentee voting.There were 1,210 who took ad vantage of early voting betweenAug. 11 and 23 and 320 absen tee ballots were turned in. That1,530 was more than half of the2,888 votes cast, a 26.4 percentturnout of the 10,959 registeredvoters in Hardee County. As of Monday, there were 4,965 registered Democrats,4,362 Republicans and 1,632 In dependents. All could vote in thenon-partisan School Board elec tions, The County Com-missionraces were Republican only. The gubernatorial vote locally was varied. Republican Gov.Rick Scott handily carried theHardee ballot by the sameamount statewide. He had 1,396 votes in Hardee County, com pared to 162 for ElizabethCuevas-Neunder and 26 forYinka Abosede Adeshine. The Democrat ballot for gov ernor was quite different locallythan statewide, where formerGov. Charlie Crist took 74 per cent of the vote while formerSen. Nan Rich had only 26 per cent. In Hardee County, the votewas 546 for Crist and 453 forRich. The Democratic vote for at torney general here mirroredthat around the state, whereGeorge Sheldon took 61 percentof the vote to win the right toface Rep. Pam Bondi and Liber tarian Bill Wohsifer in Novem ber. Democrat State Rep. PerryThurston garnered only 39 per cent of the vote statewide. InHardee County, Sheldon won517 to 348.

August 28, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate What once was lost has now been found. For the past few weeks, Larry Pelton, county director of Veter ans Services, has been searchingfor a home for an abandonedgrave marker meant to com memorate Capt. Murray NovelleBullard, who passed away in1985. The marker was found in a supply room by Jim Haye, whois the assistant director of thecity of Wauchula’s Public WorksDepartment. Upon seeing whatthe stored item was, the markerwas sent to Pelton, who then hadit cleaned by Randy Brown. After the thorough cleaning, Pelton was able to see thatBullard had been a captain in theU.S. Army during World War IIand had died on Dec. 22, 1985,at the age of 63. With the little information he had, Pelton went on a scavengerhunt, looking for someone orsomewhere to return the marker.He researched Bullard online,hoping to link him to a livingrelative but was stopped at al most every corner. Pelton found a 1940 Wauchula census, and discoveredthat at that time Bullard livedwith his mother, Dossie, andbrother, John. However both arenow deceased. Knowing that Bullard had lived in Mount Pisgah and inWauchula, Pelton searched theWauchula Cemetery and a fewof the cemeteries in Polk Coun-ty, but came up empty. An obituary for Dossie Bullard was then found in the Aug.4, 1983, edition of The Herald-Advocate. In the survivors sec tion it lists six siblings and agrandchild. Two of her sisters,Doy Thorpe and Dimea Bur-nett, resided in Wauchula at thattime. In searching for relatives of the sisters, Pelton was able tofind a granddaughter who con firmed that Bullard had beenburied in the Wauchula Cem-etery. Upon further research, Pelton found that Bullard’s sister-in-law, Onie Mae Bullard,arranged his funeral and foundwhere he is buried. It is still unknown why the marker ended up in a supplyroom, but it will soon be re turned to its rightful place. Ro barts Funeral Home marked hisgravesite and Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Home will actu ally put the marker back over hisgrave. Capt. Murray Bullard was born on Dec. 4, 1922, in Wau-chula. He enlisted in the U.S.Marine Corps in Jacksonville onJune 15, 1944, and was assignedto active duty the very next day. While in the Marines, he par ticipated in action “against theenemy in Okinawa” in April of1945. He also participated in theoccupation of Japan from Sep tember to June of 1946. He was honorably discharged that same year in August as acorporal. In June 1950, he en listed in the U.S. Army. By the time he was honorably discharged in December 1957,he had risen from second lieu tenant to captain. Through-outhis service he earned the WWIIvictory medal, Asiatic-Pacificmedal, American Cam-paignmedal, National Defense Serv ice medal and the Army Occu pation medal. Ponger-Kays-Grady Funeral Home has donated the base onwhich to put the marker and iswaiting for the base to arrivefrom Georgia, which will takethree to four weeks. Wauchulalocation manager Floyd Rice Jr.said he wants the job to be doneright, and is happy to donate thebase since Bullard was a vet eran. Bullard was never married and died on Dec. 22, 1985, inBartow. Grave Marker Mystery Is Finally Put To Rest PHOTO BY MARIA TRUJILLO Capt. Murray Bullard’s misplaced grave marker will soon find its way to its rightful spot when it is placed on his gravesite in the Wauchula Cemetery. Finding hi s burial site re quired hours of research by Veteran’s Services Director Larry Pelton. Pelton sa id he just couldn’t let it go, and noted that he had fun solving the mystery of the marker’s true home. r+(35/(0*&(8:&(6)-6/( : (863) 767-8920(Road North of Aaron’s Rental.

By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Ice ice baby!When typing “ice bucket challenge” into Youtube an arrayof videos will pop up that showpeople dumping ice water overtheir heads. It seems like such arandom and odd thing to do, butin reality this simple act hashelped one organization raisemillions of dollars. As of Tuesday, the ALS Asso ciation has raised $88.5 milliondollars in the span of about onemonth. Last year, the associationraised $2.6 million during thesame time period. Just one week ago, donations totaled about $22.6 million. Thatmeans an average of about $9million is being donated dailyand the number just keeps goingup. In a press release, Barbara Newhouse, president and CEOof the ALS Association, said,“We are simply awe-struck atthe incredible generosity thathas poured forth to help fightthis disease. Words cannot ex press how grateful we are to thenearly two million people whohave donated and even morethan that who have likely takenthe challenge. You have all madean incredible effort in the fightagainst this disease.” Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also commonly known as“Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is anincurable neurodegenerative dis ease that affects a person’s nervecells in the brain and spinal cord.As ALS progresses an affectedperson may become paralyzed,caused by motor neurons dyingmaking it difficult and, in time,sometimes impossible to controlmuscle movement. According to the ALS Asso ciation website, ALS is mostcommonly found in people aged40 to 70. Data also shows that60 percent of the people with thedisease are men and 93 percentin the database are Caucasian,although ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial or eth nic boundaries. It can be difficult to diagnose people with ALS as not every one has the same symptoms orthe same sequences or patternsof progression of the disease.However, progressive muscleweakness and paralysis are uni versally experienced. But how are they raising money? Although it isn’t clear exactly who started the ALS ice bucketchallenge, it is thought formerBoston College baseball captainPete Frates and his friends andfamily made the challenge goviral on the internet. Frates was diagnosed with ALS in 2012; he is currently 29years old. The premise is simple, a per son is nominated and has 24hours to either accept the chal lenge or donate money to a char ity of one’s choice (or do both),however ALS has been thebiggest benefactor from this na tionwide trend. If a person accepts the chal lenge, they then have to have abucket of ice water dumped overtheir heads and can then go on tonominate three other people totake the challenge as well. Thechallenge must be recorded andposted online This challenge has been ac cepted by politicians, Hol-ly wood actors, singers and evenlocal members of the commu nity. People of all ages havedone the challenge, from tod dlers to Hardee County’s ownsheriff! Although the challenge is a great way to joke with friendsand have a few laughs, it hasserved a greater purpose, bring ing awareness about this deadlydisease and trying to find a cure. If you would like to learn more about ALS or make a do nation to the association, go toalsafl.org and a donation will bemade to the Florida chapter ofthe association. ALS Challenge Freezes

8A The Herald-Advocate, August 28, 2014 Motorists preparing for a Labor Day road trip will likelysee the cheapest gas prices forthe holiday since 2010. Oil and gasoline prices slipped again in the past week,and that decline is likely to con tinue into the holiday weekend. "Record high oil production is keeping downward pressure ongas prices," said Mark Jenkins,spokesman, AAA — The AutoClub Group. "The bottom fellout again on oil prices last week,which should lead to anotherweek of discounts at the pumpdespite rising demand, as 29.7million Americans plan to take aroad trip for Labor Day week end." The price for a barrel of WTI oil settled at $93.65 on Friday,$3.70 cheaper than the week be fore and the cheapest settlementsince January. Refineries are producing the most petroleum for this time ofyear since 1989, primarily dueto the shale boom, which hasboosted oil production in theUnited States by 64 percent inthe past five years. The current national average price for a gallon of regular un leaded gasoline is $3.44, 15cents cheaper than the averageprice on Labor Day 2013. Theaverage prices in Florida, Geor gia and Tennessee are cheaperthan last year's Labor Day by 22cents, 21 cents and 18 cents, re spectively. Gas Cheaper For Labor Day Weekend CONGRATULATIONS!!!

Mary Lois Crawley told me the doctor told her to continuetaking it easy for three or fourmore weeks. We all think itwould be great to have nothingto do, but she says it is getting miserable! I am sure Shermancan agree with her, as he gets“stir-crazy” just sitting in thehouse! Sherman and I were in Lake land last Saturday when his cellphone rang. It was MichelleCrawley-Youmans and she toldSherman she thought she hadour dog, Rascal at her home.She went on to describe him ashaving on a green collar but noname on it. Our grandson, TK,had been working in the groveand came to the house and didnot see Rascal exit as he camein. We do not let Rascal outwithout a leash. There is notelling where all he went as shesaid he was tired and thirstywhen they noticed him restingunder one of their trees. He wasperfectly agreeable to going inthe house with them and afterdrinking some water jump onthe bed with Blake and watchTV. When Blake went to an other room he was right there tosit in that chair.

August 28, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B PHOTO BY JIM KELLY Sam Killebrew, Polk County co-chairman of Vote No On 2, spoke to the Wauchula Kiwa nis Club on Tuesday, Aug. 12, and said voters on Nov. 4 shou ld vote against the medical marijuana amendment which he said is too loosely worded. “Amendment 2 is not de signed to help the sick. Amendment 2 is designed to legalize pot-s moking in Florida. Don’t let them fool you.” He said the wording allows so-called “ca regivers” to dispense medical pot, and they can be convicted felons and do not need any medical training. the amendment places no restrictions on the location of seedy pot shops and does not require a doctor’s prescription in order to obtain pot because a prescription would vio late federal law. Teens and children would be able to legally purchase pot without par ents’ consent, and there is no age restriction. The amendment allow s “other conditions” in addition to relief from a debilitating medical condition for a physician “certification.” Killebrew said the measure should be voted down in 2014 and have the legis lature ap prove better wording. From left are Sam Killebrew, club president Lizette Ort ega, and Wauchula Police Chief John Eason. Killebrew said the amendment is bei ng pushed by Orlando attorney John Morgan and would lead to a lot of lawsuit s.

8B The Herald-Advocate, August 28, 2014The Classifieds CollectingQ: I have four saucers, four teacups and a sugar and creamer in Royal Ruby glass. It has such a beautiful color, I am curious about how it was made. Raynette, Springdale, Ark. A: Although the an cient Egyptians were known to make red glass, most of the pieces seen in American shops and antiques malls are of fairly recent vintage. The 1920s and '30s saw pieces being manufac tured, and after a lull, production picked up again during the 1940s when Anchor Hocking intro duced its pattern of Royal Ruby. The company used copper to achieve its rich color. Some of this type of glass used gold, but its use was, of course, much more expensive to produce. This glass was made in a variety of hues, from the deep-red colors of ruby to the lighter shades of cranberry. The Royal Ruby glass pro duced by Anchor Hocking is plentiful and fairly inexpensive. Most collectors are especially in terested in the pre-World War II pieces. Prices vary, but I would think your teacups and saucers are worth about $35 for the set, the sugar and creamer about half that amount. Q: My daughter's husband came from a family that in cluded early tobacco planta tion owners in the Carolinas. As a result, he inherited a beautiful bedspread made from the fibers of the tobacco plant. Would you have any idea of its value? Donald, Sun City West, Ariz. A: The short answer is no. This is a unique item, and if you truly want to determine its value, it is necessary to hire the services of a professional appraiser. Since you live near Phoenix, you also might contact The Phoenix Art Museum, which has an outstanding textile collec tion, and one of its experts. Q: I have a John Deere toy tractor. It is the Overtime model, 1:16 scale and green in color. I think I got it for a birthday present in about 1995. Any value? Ken, Madison, Wisc. A: I found your tractor refer enced in "The Standard Catalogue of Farm Toys: identification and Price Guide," edited by Karen O'Brien and published by Krause Books. According to O'Brien, your toy was manufactured in 1994 and is valued in the $13 to $27 range, depending on its condition. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

By Larry Cox COMPUTER USE KEEPS BRAIN IN HIGH GEAR We can improve our memory and store brain power for the fu ture by surfing the Internet and checking email. So says a study with the unwieldy title of "English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA): Can Int-ernet/Email Use Reduce Cognitive Decline?" Per the study, besides "stor ing" cognitive ability (brainbased skills) for the future, digital literacy also "leads to the employment of more efficient cognitive networks to delay cog nitive decline" in other words, we find new ways of get ting the results we want. It makes sense. Digital liter acy involves more than just pressing buttons on the key board. Hunting for what we want on the Internet involves thinking, planning and carrying out what we want to do, evaluating what we find and maybe sharing it in email with others. And it's not just computers; smart phones, tablets and lap tops play a part in digital liter acy as long as we understand how to use them. The study used a large group 6,400 adults in Britain ages 50 to 89, with annual retests for eight years. As tests of memory, they were given 10-word lists for later recall. The conclusion was that good health, financial status and edu cation and digital literacy resulted in better memory. Those who didn't use the Internet showed declines. Current users increased their recall capability. The good news is that over half of seniors between 65 and 74 have Internet access, in both the U.K. and the U.S. Key is that little caveat about financial status. Not everyone can afford a computer and Inter net access. However, there are ways to get around this. Senior centers often give classes on In ternet browsing, use of cell phones, useful computer programs like email and book keeping, and the like. And if they don't have computers that seniors can use, the library usually does.

Send email to columnreply2@gmail.com.(c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.SENIORNEWSLINEby Matilda Charles Q: The windows in my new apartment have curtain brack ets installed on either side of all the windows, but they are ei ther warped or broken. I'm not very confident that I can put up new brackets. Any tips? Sarah, via email A: Sure. Tip one: don't be nervous about placing new brackets. Tip two: measure twice, cut (or drill) once. Putting up outside-mounted curtains can seem difficult, but it's a great home-improvement project for beginners that can boost confidence while making your apartment considerably more awesome. You'll need a few simple tools: a tape measure (one of the big locking ones is ideal) and a level (very inexpensive, but indispensible for getting the brackets set up in line). Buy a corded power drill, or borrow one from a friend, along with a set of drill bits. And keep one flat-head and one Phillips-head screwdriver on hand, too. You'll also need a small ladder or stepladder to work safely. Measure the height that the curtains must reach. If you want floor-length curtains, measure from the floor to the top of the window molding (the wooden frame around the window opening). Add about 4-6 inches to that measurement to get the correct height of curtains you need. (Most ready-made curtains come in standard sizes, with 84 inches the norm for floor-length.) Measure the width of the win dow from one side of the molding to the other. Next, buy new brackets and curtain rods (and curtains, if you don't have them already). The rods should be long enough to extend 3-6 inches past the window on each side. The brackets need to be tough enough to hold up heavy curtains (that's part of the reason why your old brackets are partially torn out of the wall). You also may want to buy plastic wall anchors; bracket screws go through these to better hold the brackets in place. Really long curtain rods often come with an additional bracket placed at the center of the rod to keep it from warping downward. Take the hint and install this center bracket if it's included. To set up the new brackets, measure and mark a point 6 inches above the window molding and another one 3-6 inches past the molding, on both sides of the window. Use the level to ensure that the points are in line with each other. Make sure the new brackets aren't placed in the same spot as the old ones. Place the new bracket so the top part touches the outer mark you just made. Use a pencil and mark the drill holes for the bracket. Do the same on the other side. Re-measure and level the two points. Then, pre-drill guide holes for the bracket, using a drill bit one size smaller than the bracket's screws. Hold the bracket in place over the pre-drilled holes, and place the screws, using the screwdriver to hand-tighten. If using a screw anchor, screw that into the wall first, then hold the bracket in place and thread the screw into the plastic anchor. (The anchor will pop open on the backside of the wallboard.) Double-check the placement of the second bracket one last time, then screw it into the wall. If a center bracket is needed, add that as well. Now, all that's left is to put the curtains onto the rod, and lift the rod into place on the brackets. An easy task! HOME TIP: Floor-length curtains should just touch the floor or crease slightly; shorter curtains should reach at least 6 inches below the window frame.

August 28, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 9B Stump The Swami By John Szeligo Well, Football Fans, it is game week. Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer and beginning of fall and, of course, foot ball! Nole Fans cannot hold back their enthusiasm over the possi bility of a repeat National Championship. It was destiny for Jimboto win a title or more possibly, it’s in his DNA. What’s that you say? Since the discovery of DNA in 1988, forensic science has solved crime at an amazing rate. It has alsolinked people to their families and ancestral homelands like one cando on Ancestry.com. A run of DNA Test on legendary college foot ball coaches would show a link to the state of West Virginia. TheMountain State could also be referred to as the “Cradle of Coaches.”2013 entered Jimbo Fisher from Clarksburg, W. Va., to the familyof title winning coaches. He grew up just a few miles south ofMonongah, W.Va., the hometown of Nick Saban. Saban has wonfour National Titles in all, three at Alabama and one at LSU He could be the nation’s top coach presently. The procession of great coaches from West Virginia began with Fielding Yost from Fairview, W.Va. He made Michigan a footballpower winning six National Championships before becoming theathletic director. He is credited with building the “Big Hou se” as Michigan Stadium is known, in that role. His pronunciation of “MeeShe Gun “is still used by commentators jokingly as well. Ben Schwartzwalder was born in Pt. Pleasant, W.Va. He played at WVU from 1930 to 1933 as a 146-pound center before coachingSyracuse from 1949 to 1973. He had Jim Brown, Ernie Davis, FloydLittle, Jim Nance and Larry Czonka all play running back for him.His 1959 Orangemen won the National Championship. Lou Holtz, born in Follansbee, W.Va., led Notre Dame to a 1988 National Championship beating, ironically, West Virginia in the Fi esta Bowl. Bob Pruett played at Marshall after growing up in Beck ley, W.Va. He returned to his Alma Mater in 1996 to coach Marshallto a 15-0 season with a National Championship led by Randy Moss,Eric Kresser and former Buccaneers center John Wade. Pruett won80% of his games at Marshall and won five straight bowl games atone point. Probably one of the most entertaining if not controversial coaches came from Shinnston, W.Va. His name was John McKay.He led Southern California to four National Champio nships from 1960 to 1975. He was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach when theybegan in 1976 through the 1984 season. McKay was famous for hissarcastic humor and one-liners. When asked by Andy Hardy in aninterview what he thought about his team’s execution, McKayquipped “I’m all for it,” He was a classic. No discussion of West Virginia coaches would be complete without Bobby Bowden. Now, he is a native of Alabama but hisroots to W.Va. in the 1960s and 70s coaching in Morgantown didproduce Morgantown High and WVU grads Tommy and Terry.Tommy had success at Tulane going unbeaten with Shawn King at QB then at Clemson for 10 years where he went to 8 bowl gameswinning 3 of them. Terry had success at Salem College, Auburn (11-0 once), 3 playoff appearances at North Alabama and is currentlythe head coach at Akron. They also had a sister who was a cheer leader at WVU. Bobby Bowden did win two National Champi onships at FSU. He will be back in Morgantown this fall for theHomecoming Game against Kansas. The last three notable coaches, like the Bowden brothers that have had success but no National Championships, are Bill Malloryfrom Glen Dale, W.Va., he coached at at Miami of Ohio and Col orado; Huntington’s Jim Grobe at Ohio U and Wake Forest; and cur rent Arizona Coach Rich Rodriguez from Grant Town. Just for funwe can add Steve Spurrier. The Ole Ball Coach really? Spurrier’sfather was the pastor of the Presbyterian Church in St. Albans, W.Va.The family moved to Tennessee when Mrs. Spurrier was 7 monthspregnant with Steve. Now fast forward to his time at UF. BillyDonovan brings in basketball player Brett Nelson to the Gators fromSt. Albans. Spurrier meets Nelson and says “Son, I wasn’t born inSt. Albans but I’m pretty sure I was conceived there.” There youhave it. Steve Spurrier even traces his roots back to West Virginia.

Just aweek or so ago I was wonderingwhat to do to keep from pureboredom, and now I am wonder ing where and how I am goingto get everything done and inorder. Peace and rest, or busy ness? Each day to itself, and allthings will be done in their owntime. My sincere condolences go to the Doyle Bryan family, as wellas to Mae Marcella Roberts’family and friends, and to thoseof the Raymond Chambliss fam ily. God bless, and please knoweach family has my prayers nowand in the days and weeksahead. I wrote about Elizabeth Greene leaving for college lastweek. Her mother, ColletteGreene, told me that Liz will be attending Southeastern BibleCollege for her studies. Formore updates, feel free to con tact Collette. Another young man, Jer-main King, has been accepted at theUniversity of West Floridawhere he will be completing hisgraduate studies.

The Hardee Senior High School Blue Star Brigade, underthe direction of Lynzi (not Lind say as I previously posted) Carl son, made its first road triptogether last Friday, the 22nd, asthe band members traveled tothe football classic in Auburn dale. They plan to travel toTampa Jesuit and Fort Meadeaway games before attending theUniversity of South Florida’s“Hot Band Day” on Saturday,Sept. 6th, and will give their firsthome performance when HSHSplays against Sebring’s footballteam on Mosaic night. I don’t know why but four inches of rain on the hill here inRiverview Heights seems to bethe magical number, but that iswhat my rain gauge has held forseveral weeks in a row. Lastweek, as I leaving my houseeach morning, I would check thetemperature and the humidity.The temperatures have been afew degrees lower, but the hu midity has either been in thehigh 90’s or at one 100 degrees,making it seem hotter. Our Hardee schools have been blessed by many local busi nesses over the most part of thismonth as they have more thanabundantly provided school sup plies for each of our districtschools. Always, where there isa need, you will find it being metby our local population and itscommercial establishments andfoundations. That is truly“Hardee Life.” Helen Lather had medical tests done on Thurs., the 21stwith her results bringing reliefwhen her doctors told her every thing is good. For this, we praiseGod for answered prayers. Birthday greetings for this week go to Connie Abbott, andtwo of my granddaughters -Michelle Redoble and Chloe Elaine Wilkins. Please remember another of my granddaughters in prayer -Tiana Gonzales, as she is stillawaiting the arrival of her son,Samuel Ezquel. She has beenunder special medical care andfrom what we are told she willbe until his birth. Another prayer request that was given to me was for ConnieSchiemmer, who has been re ceiving kidney dialysis for sometime, and also is having severedigestive problems. The primary election has come and gone, but we must stillface the race for the finals thatare still several weeks away. I have often heard it said that ifyou did not vote and you don’tlike the results, then you have no reason for complaint. Again, Iask that each of you make yourvote count.

Q: I am a big fan of “24,” and was pleasantly surprisedto see the character of Chengreturn this summer. Can youtell me where else I can see theactor who played him? —Lawrence E., Baltimore A: Tzi Ma is the longtime character actorwho lost hishead as ChengZhi in the sea son finale of“24: Live An other Day.” Ispoke with Tzirecently, andwas delighted (and a bit relieved)to find that he was nothing likeCheng and much more like hischaracter of the Zen Master onUSA’s “Satisfaction” (which hasits season finale on Thursday,Sept. 18, at 10/9c). Tzi (pronounced “tie”) was thrilled to get the call to return tohis bad-guy role on “24,” but italmost made him miss out on“Satisfaction” when shooting forboth series began to overlap. Tzi told me: “It was a bit of a logistical nightmare. Thankgoodness they worked it out.‘Satisfaction’ was on the brink ofreplacing me because I was sup posed to be in Atlanta by themiddle of May, and I was still inEngland. I flew straight fromLondon to Atlanta. And I wasstill on hold for ‘24’ in case weneeded to do reshoots. Sean(Jablonski, the creator of ‘Satis faction’) is so generous and sup portive and trusting. They waitedfor me, and I am so grateful forthat. Thank you, guys!” Tzi also addressed the state ment made by Freddie Prinze Jr.that Keifer Sutherland was un professional and difficult to workwith: “Look at what Keifer’sdone for ‘24.’ He’s been in prac tically every scene, from begin ning to end, for nine seasons.That should tell you somethingabout this guy’s work ethic. Idon’t know any actor who comesto the set more prepared thanhim. You can’t carry a show likethis being an asshole. Everyonehas his moments, even me. Thefact is, he doesn’t compromisebecause he is trying to achieveexcellence.” Q: I can’t get enough “Out lander”! Please tell me it willbe back for another season. —Eleanor W., The Villages, Fla. A: I am thrilled to tell you that after its record-shattering open ing weekend, Starz did indeedrenew the time-traveling/fan tasy/historical-drama/romanceseries for a second season. Earlyreports say that the second sea son will be at least 13 episodes,and it will be based on Diana Ga baldon’s second book in the“Outlander” series, “Dragonflyin Amber.” Q: Like the rest of the world, I was shocked andheartbroken to hear aboutRobin Williams’ suicide. Iknow he was working on somemovies before his death. Willany be released posthumously? —Kelli F., via email A: The consummate funny man with a heart as big as hisfunny bone left this world waytoo soon, as I’m sure we all canagree. He did leave behind fourmovies that have yet to be re leased: “Night at the Museum:Secret of the Tomb,” “MerryFriggin’ Christmas,” “Boule vard” and “Absolutely Any thing.” Write to Cindy at King FeaturesWeekly Service, P.O.

August 28, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B S S t t o o n n e e F F r r u u i i t t F F e e a a s s t t When it comes to food and cooking, a good rule of thumb isto mix it up a bit. When cookingseasonally, it's best to try newfoods when they show up at thefarmers market or grocery.There's so much fresh summerproduce to choose from ––from the popular picks like corn andwatermelon, to the lesser known,not so sought after group likemulberries and crenshaw squash.Now is the time to take advan tage of this overflowing in-the-raw produce buffet. Trysomething new and experiencethe nuances of different flavorsin your meals! In a world longing for peaches, nectarines somehow take a backseat. Nectarines and peaches areboth members of the stone-fruitfamily, which includes plumsand apricots. But in this family,the peach and nectarine are soclose, there is only one gene re sponsible for their difference.This unique gene makes thepeach fuzzy and the nectarinesmooth. If you take a blind tastetest, I think you'll agree that thenectarine has its own distinct at traction. It's usually sweeter andjuicier than most peaches ––in essence, more nectar! KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow Nectarines, like peaches, orig inated in China over 2,000 yearsago and spread across the conti nents until they landed in Amer ica. They grow best in warmerclimates, like California, wherealmost all the nectarines we findin the market are grown. Nectarines are an excellent source of vitamin C and are lowin calories. While a delicioussweet nectarine is relatively highin sugar, its fiber content helpsthe body slow the breakdown ofits sugar in your digestive track,therefore making them a goodchoice for satisfying your sweettooth. Recently, studies haveeven suggested that nectarines,as well as other stone fruits, havea bioactive compound that couldprove effective in preventingobesity. Nectarines, like other stone fruits, are ripe when they givejust slightly to the touch. Youalso should be able to smell thesweetness of a nectarine. Theycan sit out until fully ripe, thenthey should be eaten or refriger ated quickly. The ultimate is tobuy ripe nectarines and enjoythem right away. Former White House chef Bill Yosse has created the perfectrecipe to showcase the unique flavors of nectarines. His FlakyNectarine Pie is an addictivedessert featuring summer stonefruit encased in a delicate crust.FLAKY NECTARINE PIE2 packages pre-made pie dough(for 2 pie crusts) or homemadepie dough for 2 pie crustsFilling8 cups (about 7) ripe nec tarines, unpeeled, pitted andcut into 1-inch chunks1 tablespoon freshly squeezedlemon juice1/2 cup granulated sugar1/4 cup packed light brownsugar1/8 teaspoon salt4 tablespoon cornstarch1 tablespoon brandy1 teaspoon vanilla extract1 egg white, beaten, at roomtemperature1 1/2 teaspoon granulatedsugarFor the Filling 1. In a large bowl, toss to gether the nectarines and lemonjuice. Add sugars and the salt;gently mix to combine withoutmashing the nectarine chunks.Set aside to macerate for about30 minutes. 2. Return nectarines to the bowl and add cornstarch, mixinguntil it has completely dissolved.Stir in the brandy and vanilla.Reserve.To Assemble and Bake 1. Transfer one round of the pie crust dough to a black steelor Pyrex 9-inch pie pan, and trimthe edges so they are even withthe rim. Place the second roundon a flat baking sheet and placein freezer. This will become the top of the pie. 2. Freeze dough in pie pan for 1 hour. When ready to bake, pre heat oven to 425 F. Remove piepan from freezer and line thedough with aluminum foil. Fillwith baking beads, dried beansor uncooked rice. Bake for 30minutes; allow to cool. Whencool, preheat oven again to 350F. 3. Pour nectarine filling into the pre-baked pie shell. Use apastry brush to moisten the edgesof the bottom pie crust with someof the egg white. Remove the topdough from freezer and placeover the fruit. Press down aroundedges with fingers to seal, andtuck any excess dough under theedges. With paring knife, cut 12slits in the center of raw dough,barely piercing it, to create airvents. Then, brush top doughwith remaining egg white andsprinkle with Demerara or gran ulated sugar. 4. Bake on an aluminum foilcovered rimmed 11-by-17-inchbaking sheet on the center rackfor 1 hour until pie is deeplygolden, and you can see the thickjuices bubbling through thevents.

(a) Any justice or judge may qualify for retention by a vote of the electors in the general election next preceding the expiration of the justices or judges term in the manner prescribed by law. When If a justice or judge is ineligible for retention or fails to qualify for retention, a prospective vacancy is deemed to occur at the conclusion of the qualifying period for retention for the purpose of appointing a successor justice or judge, and a vacancy shall exist in that office upon the expiration of the term being served by the justice or judge. When a justice or judge so qualifies, the ballot shall read substantially as fol lows: Shall Justice (or Judge) ...(name of justice or judge)... of the ...(name of the court)... be retained in office? If a majority of the qualified electors vot ing within the territorial jurisdiction of the court vote to retain, the justice or judge shall be retained for a term of six years. The term of the justice or judge retained shall commence on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January following the general election. If a majority of the qualified electors voting within the territorial jurisdiction of the court vote to not retain, a prospective vacancy is deemed to occur immediately following the general election for the purpose of appointing a successor justice or judge, and a vacancy shall exist in that office upon the expiration of the term being served by the justice or judge. (b)(1) The election of circuit judges shall be preserved notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) unless a majority of those voting in the jurisdiction of that circuit approves a local option to select circuit judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election. The election of circuit judges shall be by a vote of the qualified electors within the territorial jurisdiction of the court. (2) The election of county court judges shall be preserved notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (a) unless a majority of those voting in the jurisdiction of that county approves a local option to select county judges by merit selec tion and retention rather than by election.

A vote to exercise a local option to select circuit court judges and county court judges by merit selection and retention rather than by election shall be held in each circuit and county at the general election in the year 2000. If a vote to exercise this local option fails in a vote of the electors, such option shall not again be put to a vote of the electors of that jurisdiction until the ex piration of at least two years. b. After the year 2000, a circuit may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the election of circuit judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the custodian of state records a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the circuit in the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen. c. After the year 2000, a county may initiate the local option for merit selection and retention or the election of county court judges, whichever is applicable, by filing with the supervisor of elections a petition signed by the number of electors equal to at least ten percent of the votes cast in the county in the last preceding election in which presidential electors were chosen. The terms of circuit judges and judges of county courts shall be for six years. SECTION 11. Vacancies. (a)(1) Whenever a vacancy occurs in a judicial office to which election for re tention applies, the governor shall fill the vacancy by appointing for a term ending on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year fol lowing the next general election occurring at least one year after the date of appointment, one of not fewer than three persons nor more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commission. (2) Whenever a prospective vacancy occurs in a judicial office for which elec tion for retention applies, the governor shall fill the prospective vacancy by appointing a justice or judge from among at least three persons but not more than six persons nominated by the appropriate judicial nominating commis sion. The term of the appointment commences upon the expiration of the term of the office being vacated and ends on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January of the year following the next general election.

No. 1 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE X, SECTION 28 (Initiative) Ballot Title: Water and Land Conservation Dedicates funds to acquire and restore Florida conservation and recreation lands Ballot Summary: Funds the Land Acquisition Trust Fund to acquire, restore, improve, and man age conservation lands including wetlands and forests; fish and wildlife habi tat; lands protecting water resources and drinking water sources, including the Everglades, and the water quality of rivers, lakes, and streams; beaches and shores; outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches; and his toric or geologic sites, by dedicating 33 percent of net revenues from the ex isting excise tax on documents for 20 years. Financial Impact Statement: This amendment does not increase or decrease state revenues. The state revenue restricted to the purposes specified in the amendment is estimated to be $648 million in Fiscal Year 2015-16 and grows to $1.268 billion by the twentieth year. Whether this results in any additional state expenditures de pends upon future legislative actions and cannot be determined. Similarly, the impact on local government revenues, if any, cannot be determined. No ad ditional local government costs are expected. Full Text: ARTICLE X MISCELLANEOUS SECTION 28. Land Acquisition Trust Fund. a) Effective on July 1 of the year following passage of this amendment by the voters, and for a period of 20 years after that effective date, the Land Acqui sition Trust Fund shall receive no less than 33 percent of net revenues derived from the existing excise tax on documents, as defined in the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, as amended from time to time, or any successor or re placement tax, after the Department of Revenue first deducts a service charge to pay the costs of the collection and enforcement of the excise tax on docu ments. b) Funds in the Land Acquisition Trust Fund shall be expended only for the following purposes: 1) As provided by law, to finance or refinance: the acquisition and improve ment of land, water areas, and related property interests, including conserva tion easements, and resources for conservation lands including wetlands, forests, and fish and wildlife habitat; wildlife management areas; lands that protect water resources and drinking water sources, including lands protecting the water quality and quantity of rivers, lakes, streams, springsheds, and lands providing recharge for groundwater and aquifer systems; lands in the Ever glades Agricultural Area and the Everglades Protection Area, as defined in Ar ticle II, Section 7(b); beaches and shores; outdoor recreation lands, including recreational trails, parks, and urban open space; rural landscapes; working farms and ranches; historic or geologic sites; together with management, restoration of natural systems, and the enhancement of public access or recreational enjoyment of conservation lands. 2) To pay the debt service on bonds issued pursuant to Article VII, Section 11(e). c) The moneys deposited into the Land Acquisition Trust Fund, as defined by the statutes in effect on January 1, 2012, shall not be or become commingled with the General Revenue Fund of the state. No. 2 CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT ARTICLE X, SECTION 29 (Initiative) Ballot Title: Use of Marijuana for Certain Medical Conditions Ballot Summary: Allows the medical use of marijuana for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by a licensed Florida physician.

The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers. Applies only to Florida law. Does not authorize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana. Financial Impact Statement: Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory and enforcement activities associated with the production and sale of medical marijuana. Fees will offset at least a portion of the regulatory costs. While sales tax may apply to pur chases, changes in revenue cannot reasonably be determined since the ex tent to which medical marijuana will be exempt from taxation is unclear without legislative or state administrative action.
