Just how long Michael D. Manley, 55, stays there was, inpart, left to him. But it will be for at least eight years, according to the penalty imposed by Circuit Judge JohnK. Stargel at the conclusion of aday-long hearing on Wednesdayin Hardee Circuit Court. Stargel handed Manley a 50year split sentence, 20 years inFlorida State Prison followed by30 years of supervised proba tion. The judge levied five years for each third-degree felonyManley pleaded to, eight yearsfor each second-degree felony,30 years of probation for threeof his first-degree felonies, and20 years prison for the remain ing three first-degree felonies. Twelve of those 20 years, however, would be suspended ifManley is able to pay $250,000toward the total restitution owedhis victims by the time eightyears are up. In all, Manley had pleaded guilty to 23 counts of grand theftand money laundering. Stargel said the prison terms would run concurrently whilethe probation would be consec utive, meaning those threedecades begin after Manley isreleased from prison. Further, Stargel ordered resti tution in the amounts of $31,895to the Esther Albritton Trust,$135,223 to the Under-woodTrust, $372,423 to the Bailey Ir revocable Trust, $44,626 to theBailey Revoc-able Trust, and$54,760 to the Arthur WomackTrust. The total due equals $638,927. As for the 30-year probation term, Stargel ordered Manley tospend the first two years of thattime on house arrest. Followingthat, he will have a curfew of 10 p.m. to 6 a.m., and will not bepermitted to travel outside the10th Judicial Circuit, which en compasses Hardee, High-landsand Polk counties. Manley must obtain full-time employment, the judge said, andmust continue to repay his vic tims at the rate of at least$15,000 per year. Manley’s earnings, Stargel said, are to be spent “only on ne cessities.” And to the state’s rec ommendation that Manley notbe allowed to enjoy “excessivedining at restaurants,” Stargel replied, “I’m going to scratchthat and say no dining at restau rants. Go to Publix.” The judge went on to tell Manley, “We have had peopleliving in cars, and I don’t knowhow my family would feel if thathappened and then theySee MANLEY 2A Soto By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A babysitter who left a local store with her purchases but notwith one of the children in hercare has been sentenced inHardee Circuit Court.

TUESDAY ROLLOVER Kelly’s Column By Jim It’s good news that gasoline prices have come down in recent weeks. –––––– Good news that the hot months of July and August are in the rearview mirror. –––––– Good news the football season has started. This is like a second religion to many Florida folks. –––––– Good news that the stock market has continued its five-year bull run. People who had the courage and foresight to keep investingin quality stocks after the 2008-09 downturn have been rewarded. –––––– Good news a lot of orange groves are looking green and have a larger fruit crop set than last year, and millions of dollars are beingspent to defeat the citrus greening disease. –––––– Good news that cattle prices are continuing their bull run of high prices. Cattlemen have rarely had it so good for so long. –––––– Good news the city of Bowling Green is doing some streetscap ing to improve the city’s looks and has a three-year program to fixthe 18 fire hydrants that don’t work. For those near the black-cov ered hydrants, have ample water hoses at the ready. –––––– Good news that most area farmers of melons and vegetables had a successful spring season and are hoping for profitable fallcrops. –––––– Good news most area fishermen have been successful with snook, bass or panfish when they test the waters lately. Peace Riveris holding its share of fish. –––––– Good news that the Hardee Wildcat football team will soon wi n a game. Maybe this Friday at Fort Meade, if not soon thereafter. –––––– Good news the Tampa Bay Bucs have a new head coach and might have a break-even or winning season in 2014. –––––– Good news that the Auburndale Bloodhounds have a fine foot ball team this year.

MANLEYContinued From 1A went into a restaurant and sawthat man enjoying dining there.” Manley stood silently, show ing no emotion, his lawyer,James R. “Rusty” Franklin, athis side as Stargel explained thepenalty being imposed. It marked the end of hours upon hours of testimony to de termine what amounts werestolen from his clients and howmuch already had been repaid. Wednesday’s hearing, the third, began with the testimonyfrom an expert witness, Cert-ified Public Accountant PatrickDugas of Winter Haven. Dugasexamined all the records, datingback to 2006, and the moniestaken from and repaid to thetrust funds in question. For instance, Dugas testified that the Esther Albritton Trustwas repaid more than thedeficits it showed, meaning zero– no money at all – was now duethat trust. In cross-examining Dugas, Assistant State Attorney LoriWinstead of the EconomicCrimes Unit asked if Dugasknew where the repaymentfunds came from. Dugas said hedid not. After Dugas, Manley took the stand. When his lawyer asked him why, Manley replied, “I got my self in trouble. We had produc tivity issues. I should have firedsome people, but I kept them on.And there were the hurricanes,too. “I got trapped into the take a little bit, take a little bit and takea little bit, and then it’s a hugeamount of money and I can’tpay it back.” Manley turned his focus to the victims seated in the courtroom,saying, “All I can do is look atyou and say I made horrible mis takes. I’m sorry that I hurt you. “Today I’m looking you right in the eye and I’m saying Imessed up badly,” he added. To Evelyn Bailey, he said, “I brought your name out into thepublic, people talking about you.I embarrassed you. I broughtyour name into a world youdon’t deserve. “I’m deeply sorry and I’m ashamed,” he said. To Clarrisa Underwood, Man ley said, “I made a huge mis take. I want to have theopportunity, I want to work ashard as I can as quick as I can. Iwant to pay the money back. “I’m sorry for my arrogance, my stupidity, my mistakes,”Manley said. Manley went on to tell the judge, “I have some business re lationships where I will be al lowed to work, collect fees andto then turn them over to paythem back. I will take all theproceeds I receive and turnaround and make those pay ments back.” He reminded Stargel that busi nessman Richard Dicks hadagreed to loan Manley$200,000 toward the restitutiondue if Manley could work forhim and was not sent to prison. In cross-examination, Winstead hammered on Manley’suse “of someone else’s money tofund poor business decisions.”She asked about interest incomethe trust funds lost as their bal ances dwindled. But as Stargel readied to pass sentence, Winstead launched herdeadliest assault, noting thatManley’s thefts began in 2002. “The Statute of Limitations prevents the state from chargingfor crimes before 2006, but thenumbers do not stop there,”Winstead told the judge. Shepointed to case law saying reim bursements could be ap-plied toearlier thefts. “The defense wants to say the Albritton restitution should be zero because so many repay ments were made,” Winsteadbegan. “The state’s position isyou should at least considerwhat was stolen prior.” Her argument resonated with the judge, who asked, “Thecredits would be for priorthefts?” “Yes,” Winstead answered. “Payments were made duringthat time frame, but were forprior thefts. The accountingprinciple is first in, first out.”She said Manley was payingback the first monies he stole,not the last. Stargel asked defense lawyer Franklin for his response to thestate’s argument. “There’s a shell game going on here,” Franklin said, caughtoff guard by Winstead’s firstin/first out argument. Stargel retorted, “Mr. Franklin, with all due respect, there’sa lot of shell game going onaround here.” The judge went on to embrace Winstead’s position, not ing, “He can’t leave her (EstherAlbritton) with zero because he’s paying on the last in/last outbasis rather than first in/first out. “You’re asking to pay the most recent thefts first, whichrenders the older thefts out ofthe state’s purview and unable toprosecute.” With that, Stargel proceeded to pass sentence, ordering alltrusts to be repaid, using theamounts Manley himself origi nally told investigators he hadstolen. Stargel told Manley as he stood to hear his sentence, “Youshocked this community, youstunned this community. This isa good community, and nowthey’re shaken. Who can theytrust? Who can they turn to intheir time of need? “And,” the judge concluded, “it’s going to take them a longtime to recover.” NOTICE OF PROPOSED RULE:The Southwest Florida WaterManagement District is proposingto adopt the following new rule(s):40D-7.001, F.A.C.; 40D-7.002,F.A.C.; 40D-7.003, F.A.C.; 40D-7.004, F.A.C.; and 40D-7.005,F.A.C.The purpose of this rulemaking isto adopt new Chapter 40D-7,Florida Administrative Code, to es tablish the policy and procedurefor suspending a contractor fromworking with the District when thecontractor has materiallybreached its contract with the Dis trict.

Unique to the region, snook are one of the many reasonsFlorida is the Fishing Capital ofthe World. While the fishery is already more than 90 percent catch-and-release, the Florida Fish &Wildlife Conservation Com-mission encourages anglers tocontinue to use moderationwhen determining whether ornot to take a snook home. Gulf snook populations were negatively impacted by a 2010cold kill. Gulf snook numberscurrently exceed FWC manage ment goals but are still rebuild ing to pre-cold-kill levels, whichis one of the reasons why it isimportant to handle fish withcare in this region and use mod eration when determiningwhether or not to harvest one. When releasing a snook, proper handling methods canhelp ensure the species’ abun dance for anglers today and gen erations to come. To learn moreabout catch-and-release and thebest way to handle a fish, visitMyFWC.com/Fishing and clickon “Saltwater” then “Recre ational Regulations.” Regular season closures are designed to help protect thespecies during vulnerable timessuch as cold weather and spawn ing. Snook are closed to harvestDec. 1 through the end of Feb ruary, and May 1 through Aug.31 in Gulf state and federal wa ters, including Monroe Countyand Everglades Na-tional Park. In Atlantic state and federal waters, including Lake Okee-chobee and the KissimmeeRiver, snook harvest is closedDec. 15 through Jan. 31 andJune 1 through Aug. 31. Management measures such as the one-fish-per-person, per-day bag limit, annual closed sea sons and size limits will helpcontinue rebuilding snook pop ulations on both coasts. Minimum and maximum size limits help protect juvenile andolder breeding fish within thepopulation. In the Atlantic, snook must be not less than 28 inches and notmore than 32 inches total length,which is measured from themost forward point of the headwith the mouth closed to the far thest tip of the tail with the tailcompressed or squeezed whilethe fish is lying on its side. In the Gulf, they must be not less than 28 inches and not morethan 33 inches total length. A snook permit as well as a recreational saltwater license isrequired unless the angler is ex empt from having a license.Snook may be targeted or har vested with hook and line gearonly. Snagging is prohibited. It is illegal to buy or sell snook. Anglers can report their catch on the Snook & Gamefish Foun dation’s website at Snook-Foun dation.org by clicking on theAngler Action link. Re-searchers also ask anglers whoharvest the fish to save their fil leted carcasses and provide themto the FWC by dropping themoff at a participating bait andtackle store. For the county-by-county list, go to MyFWC.-com/Research and click on“Saltwater,” then “Snook”(under “Saltwater Fish”) and“Snook Anglers Asked to Helpwith Research.” These carcasses provide bio logical data, including the size,age, maturity and sex of thecatch. This information is im portant to the FWC in complet ing stock assessments on speciessuch as snook. If you see a snook fishery vi olation, call the Wildlife AlertProgram at 888-404-FWCC(3922).

The next Town Commission meeting will be on Monday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m. at Zolfo Springs Town Hall. Gas prices remained stable through the Labor Day holiday weekend as 29.7 million people gassed up the vehicle for a road trip. Prices were the cheapest for the holiday since 2010. Compared to last year's Labor Day, the average price was 15 cents cheaper nationwide, 19 cents cheaper in Florida, 20 cents cheaper in Georgia and 18 cents cheaper in Tennessee. "There's no doubt that low gas prices helped convince many Americans, who were on the fence about traveling, to take a trip during the holiday week end," said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. "Prices may get even cheaper in the coming months, he added. Demand typically declines in the fall and domestic production is high, which should help push gasoline prices, in many mar kets, below $3 a gallon before the end of the year. Potential spoilers would be refinery out ages or a hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico of Mex-ico," Jenkins said. The month of August saw falling oil prices and the cheap est gas for the month of August in four years. The price for a barrel of WTI on the NYMEX was $97.88 on Aug. 1, but finished the month at $93.86. Since Aug. 1, the national average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline fell nine cents. The average price dropped six cents in Florida, eight cents in Georgia and seven cents in Tennessee. The current average price is $3.43 nationwide, $3.37 in Florida, $3.33 in Georiga and $3.21 in Tennessee.

Andrew McGuckin of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office. She posted a $1,000 surety bond about six hours later to gain her release from custody pending trial. She faced a possible maxi mum sentence of five years in Florida State Prison. Sheriffs Office spokesman Maj. Randy Dey said the inci dent occurred early the morning of June 3. Soto, he said, took the 4-year-old and seven other children a total of eight under the age of 12 to the Walmart Supercenter at 1480 U.S. 17 N. in Wauchula. She made a purchase, and then left the store with all of the children except this one little girl, he noted. Soto returned to her residence at the Wauchula Garden Apartments, not realizing that one of the eight children in her care was no longer with her, Dey explained. It took about an hour before one of the 4-year-olds siblings asked Soto where her sister was. Soto began to look for the child, Dey said, and ultimately placed a phone call to the Walmart Su percenter. Soto asked the Walmart em ployee who answered the phone if they had found a little girl there, but could not tell the employee the childs name, as she did not know it, Dey said. The employee told Soto the child was still there. But when Soto arrived at the store to re trieve the 4-year-old, she was met at the front entrance by sheriffs Det. McGuckin. McGuckin and an investigator with the state Department of Children & Families spoke with Soto, who said she had so many kids with her, and did not realize that she had left one at Walmart, according to the ar rest report. She became aware, she said, when the 4-year-olds sister asked her where the 4-year-old was, Dey said. Dey said Soto has four chil dren of her own, and was babysitting for four more chil dren. He said Soto had placed a notice on Facebook advertising for her babysitting services. The 4-year-old who was left behind at the store began to cry, and was found by an employee, he said. Walmart then called the Sheriffs Office. Dey said Dep. Manuel Martinez and Det. Andrew McGuckin were at the store from 9:30 a.m. until 10:45 a.m. trying to identify the child and find her family. The 4-year-old, he said, was able to tell the officers her first name, but could not give any in formation about her parents or about where she lived. We were there a good hour, even more, before the woman called the store looking for the child, Dey noted. Soto was taken into custody at the store. WALMARTContinued From 1A

B The Herald-Advocate(USPS 578-780)Thursday, September 4, 2014 PAGE ONE The Hardee Wildcats could not overcome four turnovers andfell 31-17 to the Jesuit Tigerslast Friday night in Tampa. Nearby rival Fort Meade awaits. The Cats and Minerskick off at 7:30 this Friday fromFrank S. Battle Field as theHardee looks for its first win ofthe young season. In last week’s game, Hardee received to start the game andpicked up one first down on arun by Keyonte Holley before ahandoff exchange from quarter back Hayden Lindsey to Holleyfell to the ground and was recov ered by the Tigers at the Wildcat28. Jesuit scored four plays later on a 13-yard pass from TrentWessel to Malik Davis. The PATkick was good and the Tigers led7-0 with 8:30 left in the firstquarter. Hardee’s next possession ended in a punt but the Jesuitplayer fumbled the catch andHardee recovered deep insideTiger territory at the 4-yard line. After three unsuccessful runs for the end zone, the Wildcatshad to settle for a 20-yard fieldgoal by Jeremy Reyna, makingit 7-3 with 3:44 left in the firstquarter. Hardee’s defense came out and held the Tigers to a three-and-out after Sherry Lee made anice tackle on second down andDerrick Graham forced an errantthrow on the next play to force apunt. Graham broke through the line and blocked the punt whichHardee recovered on the Jesuit 20. After a 13-yard run for a first down by Lindsey, he droppedback and found Trequan Holleyopen in the end zone for thetouchdown. The Reyna PATgave the Cats the 10-7 lead with11:53 left in the second quarter. Jesuit took over on the ensu ing kickoff. Three plays later,Cat Cavaris Snell intercepted aWessel pass at the Hardee 23-yard line. Lindsey quickly found Dalton Bethea open for a 17-yardpickup before the next pass wasintercepted by Parker Looney,who returned it for a touchdown.An illegal block negated thescore. Jesuit was unable to capitalize off the interception and theHardee defense forced aturnover on downs after theTigers went for it on fourth-and-2 and were denied. A penalty and a sack stalled the Hardee drive and the Catswere quickly forced to punt backto the Tigers. A short punt gave Jesuit the ball at the Hardee 30-yard lineand the Tigers quickly scored ona five-yard run by Davis. ThePAT was good and Jesuit retookthe lead 14-10 with 3:08 left inthe half. Neither team threatened to score again before the half ex pired. Jesuit opened up the second half with a 9-play, 70-yardtouchdown drive capped off bya 3-yard run by Davis. The PATmade it 21-10 with 8:02 left. Hardee went backward on its first possession of the half witha 9-yard loss and then Lindseywas sacked to force a Hardeepunt from the Wildcat 7. The Tigers took over at the Hardee 29 after the 22-yardpunt. Four plays later, Davis scored his fourth touchdown of thenight from 20 yards out to ex tend the Jesuit lead to 28-10with 4:01 left in the third quar ter. Hardee’s offense took over and immediately picked up a bigchunk of yardage when Lindseyfound Jordan Jones open for a37-yard completion. Lindseythen found Bethea open for a 23-yard gain before finding the endzone with his legs from the 3-yard line a few plays later. The PAT by Rodrigo Rodriquez was good and Hardeehad cut the lead to 28-17 as thethird quarter came to an end. The Tigers then went on a nearly 5-minute drive that endedwith a 38-yard field goal, push ing their lead to 31-17 with 7:54left in the game. Hardee then drove deep into Jesuit territory before an inter ception ended the drive and gavethe Tigers the ball back with justmore than 5 minutes remaining. The Wildcats got the ball back with under a minute remainingand were unable to score. This week the Cats will look to avenge their only loss of theregular season last year whenFort Meade won 18-6. The Miners beat Mulberry 70 last week in a game calledmidway through the secondquarter due to bad weather. Jesuit Tops Hardee, Fort Meade Awaits By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Last year’s senior leader for the Hardee Wildcat hoop team isnow a freshman at Warner Uni versity at Babson Park, outsideLake Wales. Steve Metayer signed a schol arship at Warner recently, fol lowing in the footsteps of formerHardee and Warner grad MarkSt. Fort, who earned All-Star in2008. For Metayer, it is a good choice, close enough to homefor family to visit and watch himand far enough to be on his ownas he joins the Royals in theirpursuit of a Sun Confer-encechampionship. Other teams inthe conference are St. Thomas,Southeastern, North-wood,Embry-Riddle, Thomas, John son & Wales, Ave Maria, Web ber International and FloridaMemorial. “Warner has been watching Steve all season and he’s gone toseveral of their open dates andplayed with them. Coach SeanHanrahan said he’s excited tohave Steve join their squad,”said Hardee Head Coach VanceDickey at the recent signing. Metayer led the Wildcats with a 24-point average. The 2013-14 team captain, Metayercapped his senior season with a37-point, 23 rebound perform ance in the Senior Night gameagainst Lake Placid on Jan. 30. He also had 38-point perform ances during last season againstLemon Bay and Brad-entonSoutheast. Against South-east hedropped 22 points in the hole inone quarter. He has had several games with at least 25 points,seven rebounds and seven as sists. For the season, he averaged 24 points, nine rebounds, fourassists and a pair of steals pergame. He injured a thumb in theseason finale, the MosiacStinger Shootout at Lake Walesand was unable to play in thedistrict playoffs. Like St. Fort, Metayer was one of 24 players in the state se lected to play in the Florida Ath letic Coaches Association SouthAll-Star team which played inFort Pierce on March 15. Maintaining a 3.9 grade point average and a member of theNational Honor Society,Metayer hopes to obtain a de gree in engineering while play ing his favorite sport.

I have greatmuscle tone, and I believe I amheight/weight proportional (5feet, 2 inches tall, weigh 130pounds). Is it inevitable that women gain weight as they age? Is itpossible to maintain weightpast menopause? I have slowlygained five pounds in the pastyear, and I've developed a littlebulge under my navel. I've in creased my cardio workout tolose weight, while continuingmy weight-lifting regimen. Iseem to be getting resultsslowly but surely. But thatbulge is still there. Should Ijust learn to live with it? —D.H. ANSWER: Many women would be very envious of yourgood health and even your cur rent weight and waistline num bers. However, in your case, it ishealthiest to continue at the sameweight you have been all yourlife. Also, abdominal fat is themost metabolically active fat,and the one most likely to in crease your risk of heart disease. It's not inevitable that you'll gain weight. Both men andwomen tend to slow down a bitmetabolically as we age. Unlessexercise increases or food intake decreases, you are at risk forweight gain. Highly processed,starchy foods may increase yourrisk of weight gain. Slow but sure results definitely are best, so keep at it and don'tget frustrated. DEAR DR. ROACH: My friend had skin cancer on hernose, and her doctor treated itby cutting it off. My friend saidshe has had many, and her doc tor always cuts them off. I hadskin cancer about 20 years ago.My doctor gave me Efudexcream, which worked on myskin cancers, but did nothingto my healthy skin. Why in theworld aren't today's skin-can cer doctors prescribing Efu-dex? It's so great. —D.P. ANSWER: I don't have enough information to say whatthe best treatment is for yourfriend. For the most commonskin cancer, basal cell carcinoma,both surgery and 5-fluorouracil(Efudex) are very effective,around 95 percent effective ormore. However, authorities rec ommend particular care withEfudex around the eyes, lips andnose, and in these cases surgerymay be both more effective andbetter tolerated. If the cancer wasa squamous cell cancer, Efudexis sometimes used, but surgerytends to be preferred. DEAR DR. ROACH: Whatcan you tell me about prurigonodularis? Is there a cure? —N.R. ANSWER: "Prurigo" is from the Latin word for "itching," andso prurigo nodularis is a chronicskin condition of itchy nodules,most commonly on the outsidesof the arms and legs. The itchingcan be quite severe. Becauseprurigo nodularis sometimes isassociated with systemic medicaldisease, the dermatologist nor mally will look for kidney andliver problems and chronic infec tions. Unfortunately, there is not a cure. Most people get relief fromsteroids, and ointments tend tobe more powerful than the creamform. Placing a bandage on topfurther increases effectiveness.Injection of steroids can be doneby an expert, usually a dermatol ogist.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.

September 4, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 3B Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!We are thankful it rained eight-tenths of an inch last Sat urday at Fort Green. I was intown and it was coming down inbuckets and the wind blowing itacross the road. Some of theditches were so full they wereeven with the top of the ditch.With such a hard rain, it still didnot clean my car. The white dustrequires soap! I hope you did not have to labor hard but took the day offto celebrate on Labor Day. JerryLewis used to host a marathonon Labor Day but I don’t re member the occasion. I just re member watching the TV. Thatwas when I was younger butnow, to get things done, I just“labor” on every day! Our community was saddened by the home going of N.H. Mur dock. Our deepest sympathy iswith the family. His daughter,Connie, and family have beenneighbors for many a year, andSherman used to have a huntinglease in Georgia with Newt andsome other men. He made hisfinal journey last Sunday morn ing around 1:30. Hardee Countyhas lost two of its sheriffs withina short time. Ava Nell Spencer is sick with pneumonia. Louise Cooper,Sherman’s cousin, is ill andunder hospice care. Please re member these ladies with prayerand others you may know about. Edith Bassett and Norma Ale jandro rode with me to Sebringlast Friday and on the way homewe stopped at Resthaven. Wehad old home week, visitingwith Louise Dur-rance, HazelJohnson, Bethenia Murray, whois another cousin of Sherman’s,Ernestine Dur-rance, a lady fromCollege Hill who was a Gricebut I had never met her before,Noveta Beeson, Ruth Moye,Buck Manley and others I didnot know but we all had a goodtime visiting. When we first arrived, Julie and Danny Durrance were visit ing with Louise and Julie hadtold me when we were at thevoting polls Louise had movedout there. Hardee County isblessed to have such a nice facil ity where people able to be upand about can live and have justa little care. My mama alwayssaid if the time ever came, shewould like to live there, but faithplayed a different tune and shehad a massive stroke and was paralyzed. A lady came into the voting polls and while getting the pa perwork completed so she couldvote, commented on how muchshe missed Mary Ruth BrownAllred, who always worked thepolls. Barbara Casey and I toldher any time we thought aboutthe restroom off of the fellow ship hall we remembered her, asshe had brought a toilet paperdispenser that stands freely. Shethought the dispenser installedwas not in a good place and shewas right! We all need to remember our friends who have gone on andanything that brings them tomind is OK. Pat Gugle told me I could put it in the paper that she was doinggood and had completed herchemo and was taking radiationonce a day as a precaution. Shelooks great and appreciated allthe prayers. Labor Day has just come and gone. In the olden days, afterLabor Day no one wore whiteshoes. You put up your summerclothes and shoes and got out thewinter ones. When Easter ar rived you again wore your whiteshoes. About 1967 people began wearing “winter white.” I al ways figured some store had asurplus and was smart enough tocall the summer shoes “winterwhite,” and so be able to sellthem. I remember the first ladyI saw with white heels on duringthe Christmas season and wastold the new name. Nowa-days,people just wear whatever theywant, regardless of the season. Fort Green’s Fall Revival will begin Sept. 21. Brother Steveannounced this year it would bea little different, with singinggroups having the music eachnight. Gulf State will be the firston Sunday night. Church startsat 6 on Sunday and then at 7Monday night through Wednes day. Come and get good preach ing and special music. Our church calendar is filling up fast. We have quit havingWednesday night suppers excepton business meeting nights. Ofcourse, if there is a special rea son we are always ready to eat! Pray for each other and our nation.

September 4, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Wauchula News By Jan Wilkins 773-0618 My computer and I are at war again. I wrote, and thought thatI had sent, new information tomy office contact on Sundayevening last week. When Ichecked to make sure it hadgone through on Monday, it had not so I resent it, but by then itwas too late for publication. Badcomputer. The Hardee Senior High School Blue Star Brigade, underthe direction of Lynzi Carlson,made its first road trip Friday, Aug. 22, to the football classicin Auburndale. Upon arrival,thunderstorms and lightningwere all around. Waiting it out inthe school’s auditorium, theBrigade met with the Blood hound band. The two bandsshared a fun time with drum-offs, game music and a bit oftheir upcoming field programs.The two bands had about twohours of fun time before thegame actually began at 8:45.TheAuburndale High School per sonnel and students made every one feel really welcome. The band traveled to Tampa Jesuit last Friday, and will com plete the away games for a whilewhen Hardee plays Fort Meadeon Friday before attending theUniversity of South Florida’s“Hot Band Day” on Saturday,returning to Hardee Wildcat Sta dium playing Se-bring on Mo saic night, Friday, Sept. 12. Helen Lather had medical tests done on Aug. 21, with herresults bringing relief when herdoctors told her everything isgood. Helen has had a relapseand has gone through furthermedical tests. Helen, we are stillvery deeply concerned aboutyou and wish you well and, yes,we are continuing our prayersfor you. Because of my computer mishap many of you did not re ceive your birthday greetingslast week. Belated birthday greetings are coming your way, Corey Zei gler, Katie White, Cindie Fis cher, Lexie Barker and “Taco”Jose Jurado who turned 17 on the 27th. My brother-in-law, Paul Adams, had another birthdayroll around this week, onWednesday. Other birthday wishes go to Courtney Tramell, Linda Smith,Carl Frey Weeks, Kaitlyn Shaw,Craig Shackelford, JamieJustiss, and Colton and CoyKnight. Birthday greetings to those of you who have celebrated in thepast few days and others of youwho will celebrate in the weekahead: Garrett Albritton, Mor-gan Bishop, Bennie Lee Platt,Jessica Harrison, GregoryBoyette, Jessica Sconyers andJennifer Napier. Really, has another year al ready passed? Happy anniver sary, Binky and MichelleGraham! Please remember to pray for those in the California area thatwas hit last week by an earth quake. I wrote last week aboutmy nephew and his wife wholive in Concord. I spoke with mynephew, Lynn Kuehl, lastWednesday night. He said thequake woke him with his bedshaking, but otherwise they hadno other problems. He worriesabout me and our hurricanes,and I worry about the two ofthem and their earthquakes. The weather for the last week and more has been a welcomechange. With the lower temper atures and the humidity a bitlower, most of us have beenmuch more comfortable. Lastweek, I did my mowing later inthe day just as the temps startedto drop and a light breeze cameup. I was able to mow every thing in less time and with lessfuel, enjoying the freshness ofthe air and the smell of thenewly cut grass, which alwaysbrings back childhood memoriesof fall harvest time for the oats, the wheat and the corn. Sunday will be Grandparents Day. For those fortunate enoughto have yours close by, let themknow that they are special toyou. And for those who are notlocal, a card or call sometimesmeans more than you will everreally know. Word came early Sunday morning that former HardeeCounty sheriff Newt Murdockhad gone home to be with theLord. Sheriff Murdock, like re cently passed former sheriffDoyle Bryan, had served ourcommunity well for many years,in many ways unknown to thegeneral public. My personalcondolences go to each memberof this wonderful family. Pleaseknow that each of you is in myprayers, as well as those ofcountless others of our HardeeCounty community. ‘Til next time, God bless and keep each of you!

Collecting Q: My son found some old bottles in acreek bed near ourhome. Most are soda-pop bottles, includingFive-O, Quality, Durand two early Coca-Colas. What can youtell me about them? —Margretta, Centralia, Ill. A: One of the better refer ences is "Soda Pop CollectiblesPrice Guide: The Encyclopediaof Soda Pop Collectibles" byAllan Petretti and published byKrause Books. Petretti is one ofthe country's foremost experts onsoda-pop memorabilia, and hisbook features thousands of illus trations documenting bottles andproducts from soda pop produc ers both big and small.

Q: I have a four-piece set of Hardee's first series of Califor nia Raisins: Ben Indasun,Justin X. Grape, Sax Playerand Tiny Goodbite. How muchare they worth? —Ben, Denton, Texas A: The California Raisins fig urines, which were given awayas premiums by Hardee's, pop upmore often on the East Coast andin the South, since that is wheremost of the restaurants in thechain were located. I checkedseveral price guides and believe the four CaliforniaRaisins figurines youhave are worth about $5each. Incidentally, Har-dee's issued a second se ries and eventually athird and final series.

A: According to "The Official M.J. Hummel Price Guide" byHeidi Ann Von Recklinghausenand published by Krause Books,the Christmas Bell series was in troduced in 1989.

8B The Herald-Advocate, September 4, 2014 A A G G o o o o d d E E g g g g Sometimes a food becomes so associated with a particular cui sine that it develops an identityproblem. While it's true thatsome fruits and vegetables aremainstays of certain cultures,many foods call multiple placeshome and are used in dishes thatspan the globe. Eggplant has astrong connection to the suste nance of Italy and has been a cel ebrated part of its cuisine and asubject of myths for centuries. A starting point in dispelling the myths is that eggplant is notnative to Italy or the Mediter ranean, but to India. It also has KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow been part of the African diet forhundreds of years. One relativeof the eggplant we know is a va riety grown there called GardenEggs, which produces a smallwhite fruit that looks very muchlike eggs, hence the name. Alsosurprising, the leading producerand consumer of eggplant todayis China. Yet another misconception about this wonderful vegetable isthat it is really a fruit. Eggplantactually is a member of thenightshade family. Foods fromthis plant family contain sub stances called alkaloids. Alka loids have been known to have adverse effects on the digestivetract. But alkaloid content innightshade plants, which includepotatoes, tomatoes and sweet andhot peppers, is extremely low. Itprobably contributed, though, toconcerns long ago about whetherthe eggplant should be eaten atall. The eggplant has the same health benefits found in all night shade plants, which are antioxi dant compounds. Studies nowsuggest that these compoundsmight aid in reducing blood cho lesterol. Eggplant also is low incalories, and is an excellentsource of potassium and fiber. When we think of eggplant, we may think of it breaded, friedand topped with Parmesancheese and tomato sauce. Buteggplant is not a one-dish won der; it has a repertoire that high lights a myriad of flavors andpreparations. In the end, eggplant is a deli cious food that when properlycooked has a mild flavor andcreamy texture, with noted nutri tional perks. Eggplant is so won derful that it easily can be thestar of a dish. While you may oc casionally get a bitter eggplant,smart shopping and the rightcooking techniques will guardagainst that. Choose small and firm fruit when buying eggplant to ensureagainst bitterness. Many vari eties have an inherent mildsweetness, such as the Japaneseand white Rosa Bianca. Another method to combat any bitterness is to salt it 30 min utes before cooking to extractany liquid and then rinsing offthe excess salt. If you're usingeggplant in a baked recipe, youmay not need to salt or rinse asany excess liquid will evaporatein the oven. This recipe for Egg plant French Fries puts a uniquetwist on this delicious vegetableand makes a healthier substitutefor traditional French fries. EGGPLANT FRENCH FRIES 2 medium to large eggplants,peeled1 tablespoon salt (for saltingeggplant to extract liquids),plus 1/2 teaspoon salt for sea soning1 cup milk2 eggs1 1/2 teaspoons ground blackpepper1 cup flour3 teaspoons Ranch SaladDressing & Seasoning Mix1 cup Panko bread crumbs1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil1/2 cup Parmesan cheese,shredded, optional 1. Slice the eggplant into 3/4inch sticks, about 4 inches long.Use 1 tablespoon of salt on bothsides of the eggplant sticks andplace them on paper towels todrain for 30 minutes. Rinse andpat dry. 2. In a medium bowl, mix milk, eggs, 1/8 teaspoon salt and1/2 teaspoon pepper until well-blended. Combine flour anddressing mix in a wide, shallowbowl. In another wide, shallowbowl, combine the Panko breadcrumbs, 1/8 teaspoon salt, the re maining 1 teaspoon pepper and the 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper. 3. Heat oil in frying pan on high heat. Dip eggplant sticksinto egg mixture and then flourmix, and then in the Pankobreadcrumbs. Place in oil, flip ping regularly, and fry 3 minutesor until golden brown. Drain onpaper towels. Sprinkle with re maining 1/4 teaspoon salt and theParmesan cheese, if desired.Serve immediately. Serves 4.

HARDEE COUNTY COMMISSION The Hardee County Commission will hold its regular ses sion today (Thursday), beginning at 8:30 a.m. in Room 102,Courthouse Annex I, 412 W. Orange St., Wauchula. The meetingcan be followed on computer by going to www.hardeeclerk.comand following the link just above the picture of the courthouse. It, and past meetings can also be seen at that link at any time. Each contains an information packet for the items discussed duringthe meeting. The following is a synopsis of agenda topics that maybe of public interest. Times are approximate except for advertisedpublic hearings. —Proclamation of National Preparedness Month, 8:35 a.m.—Wauchula Hills water main extension contract, 8:45 a.m.—Health Department core contract and resolution for fee schedule, 9 a.m. This agenda is provided as a public service of The HeraldAdvocate and the Hardee County Commission for those whomay wish to plan to attend. On The Agenda Q: While putting some stuff in the attic, I heard somescratching and squeakingsounds. I know we don't havemice in the house, but I could n't see any nests or fur aroundthe attic. Sitting outside thenext day though, I saw a squir rel climb under the eaves anddisappear. Do you think I havea squirrel infestation? How doI get rid of them? —Wigged Out in Washington A: You may very well have a squirrel infestation. Like otherrodents, squirrels can damage in sulation and electrical wiring, sogetting rid of them is a priority. Take a closer look at your home's eaves and soffits to findout all the points of entry. It'slikely that some small damageoccurred underneath the eaves,and the squirrels exploited it.They will still be using this new"front door" they created. Head back into the attic and hunt for nests or other signs ofsquirrels. Nests often are builtusing insulation — sometimes inthe insulation — along the outeredges of the attic. Also, locatethe entry point and other pointsof entry and mark them withchalk or tape. Block up all entry points ex cept one. From this point, you have a choice to make: Do you want totrap and release the squirrels, ordo you want to kill them? If it'sthe latter, you can place poisonbait for rodents (including squir rels) near entry points and nests,or use kill traps. If that's not your thing, pur chase a live trap with a one-waydoor. Set it in the attic at the oneremaining entry point. Do this atmidday, when the squirrels aremore likely to be out looking forfood. If you're not sure thatthey're outside, set a live trapnear the nesting spot, with a littlebait inside (like peanut butter).Once trapped, take the squirrel(s)to a new area, away from otherhouses but not too far from theiroriginal roaming area. Once done, block the remain ing entry point and then repair alldamaged areas. Additionally,have an electrician go over theattic wiring to make sure it hasn'tbeen damaged. HOME TIP: Don't block attic vents to prevent squirrel infesta tion; instead, install a sturdymesh cover to keep rodents outwhile allowing crucial airflow in.

There were a few surprises but most games were blow-outs with major schools opening with easy teams. There were sev eral players and teams that made preseason predictions fall apart.Running backs for Georgia and Nebraska took the Heisman discus sions away from only quarterbacks. However, quarterbacks fromTexas A&M, BYU, Oklahoma St. and West Virginia showed FSU,Baylor and Oregon are not the only teams with great QB play. Is FSU really number one? A 37-31 win over a Big 12 team ranked in the middle of its conference? What if the Noles hadopened with Texas, Oklahoma, high scoring Baylor or even KansasSt.? The loss of the defensive coordinator to Georgia may haunt theNoles. Georgia held Clemson to 19 yards in the second half. FSU’snext test won’t come along until they play Florida. The Noles willbe 30-point favorites or better against any ACC team. The SEC opened with the usual success, an act of God and a stunner in Columbia. There was the Vanderbilt 37-7 to Templethough. The Gators could have used that Idaho tune up. EasternMichigan will be the only game now until SEC play with Kentuckyand Alabama. Florida is the only team playing Alabama and FSU in2014. Did the Aggies send a message to Alabama this week? Geor gia’s defense and Todd Gurley sent the SEC East a message as well.Both Mississippi teams looked impressive. LSU came back from 17down to win over Big 10 power Wisconsin. Auburn pulle d away strong from Arkansas. Alabama put up 538 yards against West Vir ginia. The Tide held WVU’s vaunted running game to 28 yards on24 carries. However, WVU QB Clint Trickett completed 29 of 45passes for 365. If not for 7 dropped passes he would have over 400.The SEC is going to be fun to watch in 2014 and you can on thenew SEC TV Channel 611 on Direct TV. Now let’s look at this week’s Bill O’ Fare ...1. Eastern Michigan at Florida — Gators finally get to play a game. UF 45 EMU 6. 2. Citadel at FSU — Bulldogs are still a mainstay in the South ern Conference after all these years of changes. However, they areno match for the Noles who need to show improvement FSU 62 Citadel 10. 3. Maryland at USF — Mack ran for 275 yards and 4 TDs last week. Can he do it again against a Big 10 team? Maryland 41 USF20. 4. FAMU at Miami — Canes have a journeyman day in route to victory. Rattlers a little down this year. Miami 33 FAMU 13. 5. FAU at Alabama — Tide Rolls over the Owls after making adjustments after last week. FAU is a solid CUSA opponent. Ala bama 52 FAU 14. 6. Towson at West Virginia — Mountaineers’ home opener is a deluge of offense from a confident team after hanging with Ala bama. WVU 55 Towson 13. 7. Rhode Island at Marshall — Herd is 119-18 or 80% victori ous in their home stadium. That is the nation’s best home field per centage. Marshall 54 RIU 10. 8. San Jose St. at Auburn — Tigers continue to play with con fidence after opening with an SEC win. Auburn 44 SJS 17. 9. East Carolina at South Carolina — Pirates are a good team with good QB play. Problem is playing the Gamecocks away afterthey lost embarrassingly to the Aggies. South Carolina 41 ECU 24. 10. Northern Colorado at UNLV — Rebels were blown out by Arizona but UNC has not played yet. Bears are ranked at the bottomof the Big Sky Conference. Nice trip for the Alumni though. UNLV34 UNC 13. 11. Virginia Tech at Ohio St. – Hokies keep it close. Ohio St. 31 VPI 27. 12. Arizona at UTSA — Rich Rod better be careful of Larry Coker’s boys. Possible upset? Arizona 35 UTSA 31. 13. Akron at Penn St. — Terry Bowden’s boys invade Happy Valley looking for an upset. Hope he gets it but doubtful. PSU 30Akron 17. 14. Kansas St. at Iowa St. — Battle of the Losers to North Dakota St.! Both have lost to the under division National Champsback to back. KSU 42 ISU 21. 15. Oklahoma at Tulsa — Sooners roll! Oklahoma 45 Tulsa 16.16. Mississippi at Vanderbilt — Vandy lost by 30 to Temple Rebels looked good against Boise. Ole Miss 51 Vanderbilt 3. 17. Michigan St. at Oregon — Quack Attack host Sparty in the week’s best match up. Winner might be buying a ticket to the FinalFour. Oregon 30 MSU 27. 18. Carolina at Tampa — Cam Newton comes to Lovie‘s debut. The Bucs should be improved in 2014. Carolina 31 Tampa27. 19. New England at Miami — Brady Bunch still wins. Pats 34 Miami 21. 20. Jacksonville at Philadelphia — Jags still have a way to go. Eagles 27 Jags 13.
