The Polk County Sheriffs Of fice said Hannah was home atthe time of the shootings, whichoccurred at about 2:10 p.m. onWednesday behind a lockedmaster-bedroom door. Investigators are calling the incident a murder-suicide. Word of the deaths has rocked those here who knew andworked with Denny. County Manager Lex Albritton said a grief counselor wasbrought in by 8:30 Thursdaymorning. He met with all of theemployees; he went around andtalked with everyone. Theyseem to be doing well with it, atleast by outward appearances,Albritton said. Albritton said the day before the shootings Denny had con fided in him concerning maritalissues. He noted Denny hadbeen contemplating a divorce. Denny had taken a day off from work on Monday of lastweek, and then talked withAlbritton on Tuesday. I knewas of Tuesday morning, I knewhe had some problems and I senthim home. He came back earlier than I expected, about 11:45 or 12 o clock. He said they worked itout. He said they were going togo to counseling, recalledAlbritton. Denny worked the rest of the day Tuesday, he said. But on Wednesday morning, Denny skipped a meeting inBartow at the Central FloridaRegional Planning Council andcame into the office instead. Heleft work at about 1 p.m. withoutcontacting Albritton.

All projects that received funding were submitted by theIndustrial Development Author-ity and include both infrastruc ture and economic developmentprojects. The largest grant, $1.5 mil lion, went to the incubator proj ect in the former ScottysHard-ware building on U.S 17. The IDA purchased the build ing last year for $498,000 andhas been retrofitting it to house several tenants. Three tenants slated to move into the facility will receivemore than $1.1 million of thefunds while $216,000 will go to ward renovating the building,$11,168 for equipment and$245,520 for overhead. Peace River Paddle Sports, which will manufacture a paddleboard/kayak vessel, re-ceived$200,000. Owner Trey Flemmerhad a finished model at the meeting to view, and said he isready to begin manufacturingwhen he moves into the facility. Cantu Apiaries and Peace River Bees will receive$269,675 to manufacture itsskin-care line made from honeyand other bee products. Stream2Sea, a skin-care and cosmetic company, will receive$662,000 and is owned by Au tumn Bloom. She also startedOrganix South, which was the first tenant in the Hardee CountyCommerce Park. Bloom latersold that company to Nutraceu tical. An additional $500,000 was granted for the Florikan buildingbeing built in the Com-mercePark. That company is moving its production facility from SaraSee EDA AWARDS 2A By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Repaving and drainage work on West Main Street in Wau-chula will start in early January. The project will take the better part of six months and needs tobe done before the summer rainsdisrupt the drainage work, ex plained Ken Wheeler, countyengineer. The January start did not sit well with the Wauchula CityCommission, which discussedthe matter while approving aninterlocal agreement with thecounty during the monthly CityCommission meeting on Sept. 8.It would prefer the work be de layed until the end of March solocal businesses could take full advantage of serving winter vis itors. The work begins at Ohio Av enue. After it passes Eighth Av enue, the work will be done atnight, after 8 p.m., to minimizeeffects on downtown businesses,said Wheeler. The county recently increased the project from$757,411 to $1,232,039 as thestate Department of Transpor-tation made its SCOP (SmallCounties Operations Program)and SCRAP (Small CountiesRoad Assistance Program)monies for the 2014-15 fiscalyear available. The state year be gins July 1. Having the full funding will enable the county to complete both the paving and drainagework at one time. Wheeler saidhe had 95 percent of the engi neers drawings and would beasking the Board of CountyCommissioners for permissionto go out for bid at its Nov. 6meeting. The work from Ohio to U.S. 17 Southbound will includedrainage, sidewalks, curbing,widening, milling and repavingalong West Main Street. It willnot cross over to East MainStreet and U.S. 17 North be-cause East Main Street is SR636 and the state has its ownplans for work to the east side ofWauchula. One of the most difficult tasks will be replacing the citys 24inch stormwater drains to 48-inch pipe, which will bettercarry flooding waters off MainStreet and, hopefully, OrangeAvenue. In addition to drainsalong West Main Street, therewill also be catch basins anddrains added along South Eighthto Orange Street and alongSouth Seventh Avenue to Or ange Street. This should prevent flood ing, based on the 25-year floodevents, said Wheeler. The eventual plan is for the city to complete stormwaterwork by drilling under U.S. 17for drains on to a vacant lot nearthe Post Office on Fourth Av enue to continue stormwaterSee MAIN STREET 2A

Kellys Column By Jim The U.S. Supreme Court began in 1789 and has nine members, appointed for life. In that 225-year period there have only been 111justices, and 107 were white men, reports the September AARP Bul letin. This reflected the traditional power base of the U.S. The other four are Sandra Day OConner (retired), Clarence Thomas, Thur good Marshall (appointed in 1967 and the first African American),and Sonia Sotomayor, a Puerto Rican Hispanic and the very firstHispanic, appointed by President Barack Obama to the nationshighest court. AARP reports President Obama sometimes tosses a football to relive stress. He also likes to play basketball and golf. Ken Burns latest documentary The Roosevelts premiered Sept. 14 on PBS, reported AARP. They are Theodore, Franklin andFDRs wife Eleanor. Theodore was a Republican and Franklin was a Democrat. Teddy overcame childhood asthma. Franklin contracted infantileparalysis/polio at age 39. Both had unbounded optimism, a sense ofdirection, were great with people, and were concerned with peopleless fortunate, said Burns. Eleanors father was an alcoholic and was insane. Her mother was very cruel to her, and both parents died before she was 12.Teddy lost his mother and his wife on the same day, Feb. 14, 1884,in the same house. His wife Alice had given birth to their only childtwo days before her death. FDR and Eleanor became the most for midable husband and wife team to occupy the White House ever. Burns is working on a history of the Vietnam War and said LBJ (Lyndon Baines Johnson) is one of the most interesting and tragiccharacters in American history. Stan Hinden wrote 5 Steps To Retire Happy for AARP:1. Ask key questions of am I ready to retire, what will I do when I retire, how will retirement change my life, w hat role will my children play, how do I cope with the downside of retirement, andcan I afford to retire? A man 65 is expected to live another 17.7 yearsand a woman 65 another 20.3 years. 2. Educate yourself by reading books on retirement.3. Save all you can.4. Avoid a nasty tax surprise.5. Make your money last. The old rule of thumb was to with draw 4 percent of your nest egg annually. A more realistic numbernow is 3 percent. Those who rely entirely on fixed income can safelywithdraw no more than 2.5 percent in the first year, plus inflationincreases. Some advice (condensed) for new college students, written by Lisa Samalonis, a writer and medical editor who has taught at col leges in New Jersey: College is expensive, so get your moneys worth. Show up for most if not all of your classes. Pay attention and do the work. Forgetperfection. College is about learning, trying new things, and occa sionally failing at some endeavors. Educate yourself about the stu dent loan program. Make real connections with professors andstudents. During class, put away your smartphone and dont surf theWeb on your laptop. Participate in meaningful discussions in the classroom. The pro fessor-student connection is one of the most rewarding aspects ofthe college experience. Professors are a good resource when lookingfor jobs after graduation. Live it upto a point. Its OK to have agood time, but moderation is what enables you to graduate with arespectable grade point average. Learn some personal responsibility. In college you are expected to speak for yourself. Campuses have mental-health services; usethem if needed. College is a big life change. Assignments convergeand overwhelm. Parents get divorced/laid off/die. Breakups happen.You can make it. Find your thing. Immerse yourself in your fieldof interest. Work an internship. Find a related side job. (Publishedin the Philadelphia Inquirer and The Tampa Tribune.)

Recently a 9-year-old girl from New Jersey accidently shot and killed her instructor at a shooting range with a Uzi submachine gun.Miami Herald columnist Leonard Pitts Jr. wrote such guns shouldbe prohibited by law in the U.S. He commented, What kind ofshooting range allows a prepubescent girl to fire an Uzi? What kindof parents think its a good idea to put a submachine gun in their 9-year-olds hand? Deer sometimes cause Florida farmers problems by eating part of their crops, reports Florida Farm Bureau. Florida allows farmersto kill offending deer on private land through a sta te-run deer depre dation program, reports Mary Foster. Wildlife fencing to keep outdeer can cost $10.50 a foot.

By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A man who sold a variety of narcotics in proximity to achurch will now have more thana decade to meditate on hiscrimes. Calvin Lavon McLeod, 46, of 670 Peterson St., Wauchula, hasbeen sentenced in Hardee Cir cuit Court to 11 years in FloridaState Prison for four of the orig inal nine criminal counts againsthim. McLeod had been arrested by the Hardee County Drug TaskForce on Sept. 15, 2012, follow ing a raid on his home on Aug.31 of that year. He was charged with traffick ing in more than 28 grams of co caine, possession of cocainewith intent to sell, sale of co caine, possession of marijuanawith intent to sell, possession ofmethamphetamine with in-tentto sell, trafficking in more than28 grams of hydrocodone, traf ficking in 14 grams or more ofoxycodone, possession of drugparaphernalia, and possession ofa structure for the trafficking ofcontrolled substances. In plea negotiations between Assistant Public DefenderRhonda Whittaker and Assis-tant State Attorney David Ward,the state agreed not to prosecutefive of the counts includingthe more serious traffickingcharges in exchange for a nocontest plea to the remainingfour offenses. Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle then adjudicated Mc-Leod guiltyof possession of cocaine with in tent to sell, possession of mari juana with intent to sell,possession of methamphetaminewith intent to sell and possessionof a structure for trafficking in orselling controlled substances. In imposing the prison sen tence, Ezelle granted McLeodcredit for the 510 days he al ready had served in the HardeeCounty Jail since his arrest as heawaited trial. The judge also assessed a total of $1,945 in fines, court costsand fees. McLeod, currently incarcer ated at the Avon Park WorkCamp at Avon Park Correc-tional Institution, is appealinghis conviction. Maj. Randy Dey of the Hardee County Sheriffs Office and a spokesman for the DrugTask Force said the convictionstemmed from an Aug. 31, 2012,search warrant at Mc-Leods Pe terson Street residence. The search warrant, he said, was obtained in the course of aninvestigation into narcotics salesfrom the home. McLeod, headded, also was observed mak ing the alleged transactions. Dey said McLeod was not at home at the time the search war rant was served, at 5:40 p.m. thatday. Drugs, he said, were foundonly in one room, the southeastbedroom. It, however, held a cornucopia of narcotics. Drug Task Force members found a blue tote bag on the bed,holding 348 grams of marijuanaand two small scales amongother packaging items, the majornoted. On a table in the corner of the bedroom, detectives found 10grams of crack cocaine, a num ber of plastic bags containingmethamphetamine and powdercocaine, still more holding mar ijuana, and pill bottles full of hy drocodone, oxycodone andhydromorphone. In all, Dey said, the powder cocaine totaled 38 grams, thecrack cocaine weighed in at 10grams, the marijuana at 348grams, the methamphetamine ateight grams and the pills at 87grams. Further, he noted, the fact that the drugs were being sold within1,000 feet of a church FirstMissionary Baptist Church is990 feet away upped the levelof severity of the crimes. McLeod is due for release in July of 2023. Drug Dealer Earns 11 Years McLeod The state Department of Chil dren & Families took immediatecustody of the daughter, and wasexpected to place her with hergrandparents, the Polk CountySheriffs Office said.

More Than 300 Attend Back-To-School Event 6A The Herald-Advocate, September 18, 2014 DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My cat's current litter worksfine, but I am reading someworrying things about the in gredients and how they mightharm him. Plus there's the en vironmental impact. Is there agood "green" cat litter avail able? Suzy G., via email DEAR SUZY: You're not alone in your concern about litterand the health of your cat. Ac cording to a report in ScientificAmerican a couple of years ago,many litter products contain sil ica dust which can cause res piratory problems in cats."Clumping" type litters may usea sodium bentonite clay, whichswells up as it absorbs liquid however, it may cause gastroin testinal problems if ingested bycats, such as when they lick theirpaws to clean them after usingthe litter box. There are also issues around how certain clays are mined, and the size of the "carbon footprint"surrounding production of cat lit ter, including how far a producttravels to reach store shelves. Sure is a lot to consider when you're just trying to find a betterplace for your cat to pee. In response to consumer con cerns, there are a few "green" lit ter products on store shelves.Look for a product like Yester day's News, litter made from re cycled paper; SchweatScoopNatural Wheat Litter; World'sBest or Benovo, made from corn;or even litter made from woodshavings and sawdust. If you're feeling adventurous, look into creating litter yourselffrom old newspaper. But don't jump fully into "green" litter without consultingyour cat: Test out a new productfor a few days to see if your catwill use it. If it doesn't adapt toone, try another.Send your questions or com ments to firstname.lastname@example.org. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

By WILLIAM R. (BILL) LAMBERTFor The Herald-Advocate Walter Berry Olliff Jr. was a mans man. If he had any earthly fear (other than the 31years with Sonya) I never knewit. He was in many respects the quintessential non-conformist. For the most part there was one way and one way only.Wally, Waldo or Walters way!Folks generally accepted andadmired his approach or firmlyrejected it. For Walter, it did not matter. You could argue. You could debate. You could point fin gers, pound fists, yell or threat en. It simply didnt matter. When he got something in hishead it was etched in stone. Walter Berry Olliff Jr. provid ed new definition to stub born. He redefined the old say ing my way or the highway! As my friend from early childhood throughout our lifewe associated or (should Isay) disassociated for most ofthe six decades he spent here onEarth. He loved life and savored every minute of it. I do not know of anyone who experi enced higher peaks or lowervalleys, and he always found yet a higher peak or deeper val ley. This was Walter. He loved his family: Sonya, Sarah and her husband Patrick,Boomer and his fiance Caitlin,and James and his wife Bailey.He also was fond of YolandaPeterson, his unofficial adopteddaughter. He cared deeply for his child hood family experiences withhis parents, Walter Sr. andMary, and his three sisters,Linda Beth, Kathy and Patty Jo. He loved his grandchildren, and his greatest lament was notbeing able to be with his grow ing expanding family anylonger. He will be missed by many, many friends and relatives, but his unconventional, assertive,stubborn, persistent passion forliving and working through life,blended with sanity fromSonya, has been assertively andemphatically branded upon hischildren! Reflecting on Walters prefer ences and priorities in life thefollowing passions beyond hislove for his family should bementioned: F He loved to work. I do not know any other human whocould work head to head,shoulder to shoulder, toe totoe with Walter Berry OlliffJr. He had an uncanny phys ical endurance driven mostlyby a desire to be a goodprovider for his family. F He loved to fish. My earli est and fondest memories ofhim surround fishing and fishstories. As children we spent time at Lemon Bay at hisgrandmothers house fishingfor reds, snook and sheep head. We went deep sea fishing for mackerel and grouper. We fished in every pond, creek andriver around Wauchula andSweetwater. We went fishing and diving in the Bahamas. Heinsisted on retro-fitting and out fitting a boat so his family could experience trips we tookas children. I know those expe riences were both fond and ter rifying for Sonya, Sarah and theboys. F He loved animals, especial ly dogs. Most of his life he couldnt be satisfied with justany type of dog. He had to have a pet that defined hisown persona. He had to have an animal that exemplifiedWalter. When we were kids and camped out I would havemy skinny little liver andwhite pointer named Pete.Walter had Rebel. Imagine Walter having a pet as a childnamed Rebel. Later in life he made his statement with apreference for Great Danes.They fit him. They defined him. F He loved to take any machine up to and beyond itsmechanical limit. He built and raced cars. It always hada Torrey Oaks decal! F He could operate, tear up and then repair any machineon earth. Bucket trucks, dump trucks, tractors, loaders,cranes, hoists, chippers,stumpers and chain saws.There was nothing mechani cal that didnt intrigue him. F He was frequently obsessed or mesmerized withunderstanding the engineeringand design of any object ormanmade creation with mov ing parts. Today his two sons have obtained engineering degrees.Life has its way of leaving cer tain marks. His dad was a Marine. Walter was a patriot, extremelysensitive and respectful of mili tary issues and operations.Today his daughter is a staffsergeant in the U.S. Army andmarried to a sergeant major inthe U.S. Army. Upon graduation from Hardee High School, he went toEmbry Riddle AeronauticalUniversity in Daytona Beachand obtained a pilots license.He loved to fly and while I wasgenerally scared to death to ridein a car with him, he was ameticulously careful pilot. A group of us flew two Cessnas, Herbie Kays andCarl Saunders, to the 1996Sugar Bowl. It was a thrashingof FSU by the Florida Gators.It was good for our souls. Wealso went to Bourbon Streetafter the game. Me, my sonWill, Walter, Carl Saunders andKenny Miller all on BourbonStreet. The FSU fans who wentwith us were sulking. I am glad he never owned his own plane though. There is nodoubt that he would have even tually crashed it, probably bro ken a few bones, and then cer tainly picked up the pieces andre-assembled it and called me totake a ride. That was the nature of Walter. He would have headbutted Chuck Liddell, the guy on theTV commercial who was achampion mixed martial artistand former Ultimate FightingChampionship Light Heavy-weight Champion. Walter was simply: Mayhem in Motion that even AllState Insurance would havetrouble insuring against. He started a lawn care busi ness that he eventually sold tome. I sold the business to mybrother. Im sure remnants of itare still around somewhere. He attended St. Leo College, worked at Wauchula State Bankand at CF Industries before he eventually became a self-em-ployed businessman. He came to me when he decided to run for CountyCommissioner. I was shocked because I never envisionedWalter as a politician. This was incomprehensible to me. He was a populist a straight from the horsesmouth, matter-of-fact publicservant. While looking backthrough our senior yearbook,there was Walter, selected asMost Popular male member ofthe class! It figures! He served three terms and frankly had we not servedtogether he could have stillbeen in office. Serving togeth er we established an interestingblend of tenacity to address thecontemporary issues faced bythe citizens of Hardee County.We knew the upside for futuregenerations and the personaldownside for our own families.He told me last week he wasproud of what we got accom plished. Walter had a passion for the citizenry he served, especiallythe little man. The everydayworking person was his focus. He was a master at beingassertive with a magical south ern drawl that befuddled all ofthe Gucci suits that came toCounty Commission meetings.For some he was too coarse.For me he was a masterfulpeople genius He could talk for hours upon hours about anything andeverything. I love to argue However, Walter defined arguing. He could be meek and patient but preferred high pressure,intense, emotional debate. The complexity of negotiations withhim and the anticipation ofresponses will always be cher ished by those who knew him. Did I mention he could talk for hours and hours about any thing and everything? Walter B. Olliff was a mans man, Sonjas husband and thefather of his children, and thefriend of many. Walter requested we remem ber him by the following poem: "WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME" When tomorrow starts without me And Im not here to see If the sun should rise and find your eyes All filled with tears for me I wish you wouldnt cry The way you did today While thinking of the many things We did not get to say I know how much you love me As much as I love you Each time that you think of me I know you will miss me too When tomorrow starts without me Please try to understand That an angel came and called my name And took me by the hand The angel said my place was ready In heaven far above And that I would have to leave behind All those I Dearly Love But when I walked through Heavens Gates I felt so much at home When God looked down and smiled at me From his golden throne He said this Is Eternity And all I promised you Today for life on earth is done But here it starts a new I promise no tomorrow For today will always last And since each days the exact same way There is no longing for the past So when tomorrow starts without me Do not think were apart For every time you think of me Remember Im right here in your heart Author: David M Romano In typical Walter fashion he paused in recent months toreflect upon himself and his lifeand he left us a message. It goes like this: ME & THE TREE Me and the tree started in the fall of 1977. Just a few saws, ropes and climbing gear. I had to learn myself, sometimes thehard way, as no one seemed towant to cut down a tree in anopen field! There were power lines, houses, porches, A/Cs,pools, ditches, fences, etc. All of my help was made up offriends, fellow mine workers asa way to make a few bucksextra. As I grew, the territory also grew. Hardee, DeSoto, Polk, Highlands, Manatee, Charlotte,Okeechobee, Lee and Volusia. In the early 80s I started working at a large RV Park inFort Meade with lots of largetrees. I still do their work to thisday. There was a very large tree on a corner lot that I trimmedon dozens of times. The tree then was about 80 years old.Straight, tall and majestic.Today the tree is at least 120years old. One day Roger called the park owner and said the old treemust go because of picking upthe foundation. Me and my son James and Kyle removed the large tree, avery meticulous job. The finalcut left us with a 60 x 17 treetrunk. It was hauled to the burn pile. After a few more days of other work in the park it wastime to leave. I said there must be something I can do with thismajestic trunk, so I told theguys that we would load it upand bring it home. We hauled it home that late summer of 2011. It just lay in the field. A few more years passed and I needed some cow pen lumber.I got out my old dusty LucasSaw Mill and got it fired backup. I cut many boards for the pens and also ended up with afair amount of firewood which Isold. I then made a large out door table for Dr. Barbara(Carlton) for her graciousnessof allowing us the use of herhome for my daughter Sarahswedding in July of 2013. For many more months there wasstill wood left. In May of 2014 I was diag nosed with a malignant tumorof the esophagus. The rest ofthe wood shall now become mycasket for my funeral. So here it is, me and my tree May God Bless You all With LoveWalter the tree man We will all miss you, Walter. Be careful with the mystics ofUniverse while you are tearingthem apart. We all aspire to joinyou one day! A Funeral Message For My Friend, Walter COURTESY PHOTO Lewis Pace was coach of the 1965 First Federal Major Little League B aseball team in Wauchula.

Golf Teams Get Matches InCollectingQ: I have inherited three pieces of Delftware that I understand were made in Holland about 200 years ago. What can you tell me about this type of pottery? Joan, Norman, Okla. A: Delftware is dis tinctive because of its soft, redclay body and tin-enamel glaze. The first pieces originated in the region around Delft, Holland. The unusual color came from adding tin ash to lead glaze. Dur ing the 17th and 18th centuries, English potters were copying this technique resulting in designs that were unique to the British craftsmen. Later pieces were made for the souvenir trade and these are not to be confused with the more scarce earlier examples. Prices vary depending on age and quality of the piece. I recently spotted a blue and white Delftware plate from the 18th century in a shop priced for $375. Q: I have a metal bootjack in a beetle design. I am enclosing a picture for you and hope you can tell me more about it. I purchased it at a flea market in Albuquerque. Jimmy, Rio Rancho, N.M. A: After examining your picture, I am convinced that you purchased a reproduction. Bootjacks have always been a popular tool for the removal of boots. By placing the heel of the boot in a U-shaped opening, the boot can more easily slip off the foot. Although older bootjacks are collectible and often can sell for $100 and more, your re production is probably worth only about $15 or $20. The tipoff is that your bootjack is made from aluminum; the older ones generally are cast iron, and occasionally wood. Q: Several years ago, I re ceived a Hummel plate as a gift. It is the 1976 "Apple Tree Girl." What do you think it is worth? Betty, Sun City, Ariz. A: According to "M.I. Hum mel Figurines, Plates, Miniatures & More" compiled by Robert L. Miller and published by Portfolio Press, your plate probably is worth about $50. Q: I have a partial set of sterling flatware in the Alexan dra pattern. Do you have any idea of when it was made? Barbara, Austin, Texas A: Your pattern was made in 1961 by the Lunt Silversmiths. Write to Larry Cox in care of KFWS, P.O.

"#& UF Pharmacy Professor Is Against Amendment 2 8"Of The Herald-Advocate Marijuana is not considered good medicine and the pro posed Amendment 2 whichwould legalize medial marijuanain Florida is a thinly veiled dis guise to legalize marijuana forrecreational use, Univers-ity ofFlorida Paul Doering said re cently. Jo McGuire, a board of direc tors member of the Drug and Al cohol Testing IndustryAsso-ciation and co-chair of theInternational Marijuana Educa-tion Committee, said there aremany potential costs associatedwith marijuana legalization. She said the marijuana indus try has a brilliant marketingstrategy of indicating every body wants it and marijuanause as a new social norm. She wrote in the September 2014 magazine OccupationalHealth and Safety that in 2000the U.S. employers lost 500 mil lion work days due to alco holism and the cost of alcoholabuse in the U.S. is at least $185billion, 10 times the tax dollarsbrought in. In 2009 over 70 per cent of teens 18 and under hadexperienced drinking alcohol. When adolescents use mari juana regularly, they can experi ence a lasting 6 to 8-point I.Q.reduction, which can harm theirpotential for completing theireduction and gaining substantialfuture employment. Treating marijuana the same as alcohol is impossible, saidMcGuire. The potency and serv ing suggestions for marijuanacannot be standardized in the same way regulatory authoritieshave measured alcohol. Thereare no measurements for mari juana impairment. For alcohol, asimple breath test can show theimmediate blood-alcohol ratioimpacting the subjects brain. Metabolized rates of THC (the psychoactive component ofmarijuana) vary widely based oneach individuals body type, andimpairment cannot be measuredby a simple screening test. Ef fects of acute marijuana impair ment can last for days. The THClevel in some modern marijuanacan be 10 to 20 times more po tent than in previous decades. An employee who got high on marijuana Friday night couldstill be impaired on Mondaymorning, endangering work place safety, she said. A federalreport on workplace drug testingby SAMHSA states employeesusing marijuana cause 55 per cent more accidents than thosewho do not. Positive drug testsshowing THC in the employeessystem verified 85 percent moreon-the-job injuries by marijuanausers (Autry, 1998). The samereport listed increased absen teeism and loss of work produc tivity. McGuire stated marijuana does produce a dependency thatrequires addition recovery andtreatment. A 2012 national sur vey on drug use and healthshowed admissions to additiontreatment facilities were mostcommon for alcohol, with mari juana ranked second. The Partnership for Drug-Free Kids states 23.5 million Ameri cans are addicted to alcohol and drugs, which is 1 in 10 peopleover the age of 12. Dr. Bertha Madras of the Har vard Medical Schools Depart ment of Psychiatry re-portedmarijuana use disorder is associ ated with higher mortality andhas lasting adverse effects on thefuture of young adults throughincrease of anxiety, panic, de pression, psychotic symptoms,cognitive losses, and neuropsy chological de-cline, and causesvarious adverse health effectssuch as psychosis. An unanswered question would be the impact of second-hand marijuana smoke to chil dren and family members andcosts related to associated ill ness, said McGuire. The California Office of Envi ronmental Health Hazards indi cated the carcinogenicity ofmarijuana smoke was associatedwith higher rates of cancers ofthe lungs, head, neck, brain,bladder and testes. There are far more questions and problems associated withthe legalization of marijuana,with no compelling medical ev idence to remove it as a Feder ally Controlled Schedule 1Substance, than there are goodsolutions at this point, saidMcGuire. While thoughtful dialogue should take place, fast-trackinga recreational drug to legal sta tus through a ruse of impossibleregulatory ideologies will proveirresponsible and costly. Exactfigures of societal costs will notbe known for many years tocome, if ever, she said.

Davis, however, remained under the impression that themoney had been invested as in structed, the detective furtheralleged. Dey said Davis asked Korne gay about his investment andhow it was performing on sev eral occasions. Each time, hecharged, Kornegay made posi tive comments which led Davisto believe the investment wasdoing well. Early this year, though, Davis became concerned because hehad not yet received any writtendocumentation on his invest ment or its performance. Then,he learned the money never wasinvested in Columbus Oil & Gasas directed. Kornegay, Dey alleged, was still in possession of the cash. The major went on to allege that Davis and his attorney madeseveral requests for the moneysreturn over a three-month pe riod, none of which was hon ored. On July 22, appearing here at a Hardee County Industrial De velopment Authority meeting,Kornegay was asked by boardmembers if he was involvedwith Columbus Oil & Gas and ifhe had collected any investmentmoney from a Hardee Countyresident. Kornegay, Dey said, admitted he had raised money from alocal individual but that themoney had not been invested asplanned. He added that he hadbeen asked to return the cash,and that he intended to do so. Dey said that on Monday, Aug. 25, Shivers spoke with Ko rnegay via telephone and toldhim that if he did not returnDavis money in a timely man ner, criminal charges would befiled. Kornegay reportedly responded that the $100,000 wasin a savings account, and that heplanned to transfer the cash bythe end of the week. As of Monday, Sept. 8, Davis had not received his moneyback. The complaint affidavit was filed and the arrest warrant wasissued. Dey said the Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office went toKornegays home to serve the Hardee County warrant, butfound he was not there. Anotherresident of the condominiumbuilding told officers Kornegaywas in Argentina. Following Kornegays arrest at the airport, Shivers went toMiami to interview Kornegay.Later this week, Dey said, thesuspect will be transferred to theHardee County Jail. Over time, BioNitrogen inter mittently has asked the IDA forconstruction of a railroad spur toits proposed urea plant site, theissuance of $300 million inbonds and $1 million to $2 mil lion in cash. The IDA, however, cooled to the project at its July meeting,when it also questioned Korne gay about his companys com mitment to purchase 606 acresfrom Davis for its plant, at anagreed upon sum of $9.6 mil lion. Davis, however, had not re ceived any payments and hadbegun foreclosure proceedings. Kornegay responded by say ing Davis had received stock inhis company, and that install ment payments would begin asprogress was made on the plant. The IDA noted at the time its intent to drop BioNitrogen fromits budget.

I didnt think I would even have a column thisweek, as I had too little to write,but all of a sudden things beganto come my way. So, lets get onwith it. Connie (Berringer) Shoemaker, a schoolmate who oftenwalked the many blocks to ourjunior high and later our highschool with me, sent this littleitem my way: If you have a family that loves you, a few good friends,food on the table and a roof overyour head, you are richer thanyou think. This was written byan unknown author, but howtrue. We sometimes take thingsfor granted when in reality weare truly blessed.

September 18, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5B Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green.We live in a computer world and my desk top has evidentlygone to computer heaven. Youwould think that if you had twocomputers in a house they couldbe programmed so that materialyou type on one and save wouldbe saved in both but mine is notthat good. Im using my laptop and it is not as convenient to type on asmy desk top. It is frightening tothink of all that is stored on mydesk top may be lost forever ex cept for when I saved to a discthe last time. To continue the computer world theory, I was at a meetinglast week and Mrs. Barton fromthe high school presented avideo about the students whoconverted a golf cart from gas toelectric and then to be poweredby solar energy. I am sure mostof the readers of this columnprobably are not aware of howsmart some of the students inour school system are. They converted a go-cart and entered competition with otherschool, some of which had beenin the competition several years.Our team placed fourth in alarge field of competitors. Veryinteresting, and maybe we donthave to worry about the highcost of fuel. Our sincere sympathy is extended to the Olliff family in thehome going of Walter last Satur day. Walter lived life to thefullest and was one of my fa vorite people. He was a hardworker, which I can attest tofrom him trimming trees in myyard. He told me he instructedhis family that unless theywanted to be in the tree-cuttingbusiness they better get a collegedegree and they followed theirfathers advice. He will bemissed. When I first moved to Wauchula I worked at M&O. Thatcompany was a big asset to thecounty and employed many peo ple. To my knowledge, theywere not give $2 million as anenticement to come to thecounty, just hard-working localpeople. Our sympathy is also ex tended to the Denny family and please pray for little Hannah,who is with her grandparents. We have some people in our neighborhood that are in need ofprayer. Sharon Adams suffered astroke and I was told was to bereleased from the hospital the15th. Sam Rawls is in LakelandHospital and has now developedpneumonia in addition to theproblems he had when he en tered the hospital. Chris Thomp son is in the Sebring hospital.The Daniel Duke family is stillunder the weather. Please prayfor these and others you mayknow. Our church proved again that the members can keep a secret.Mary and Donald Samuels weregiven a surprise 50th weddinganniversary party last Saturday.Marys sisters, Judy and Janieplanned the celebration. Therewas a good crowd and they weretotally surprised. Mabel Williamson picked them up with plans to go to aLakeland restaurant but had tostop by the church for a minuteand see the preacher. Many ofthe cars were parked in the back,which helped keep the surprisewhen they drove to the church.The occasion gave them somehappy memories. Donald mother, Mrs. Hughes, worked at the Little Red SchoolHouse, so most people mydaughters age knew her. Shewas a good teacher and the chil dren loved her. Most people canremember Mrs. Stancil and Mrs.Hughes. They put on some goodkindergarten graduation pro grams at the City Hall. Donald told me his mother had given them instructionsabout her funeral and the clothesshe was to wear and she lookedreal pretty. These in-structionsactually help the survivors. Sherman was in the grove re cently on the tractor and a bigcoyote crossed in front of him,unconcerned with the tractornoise and headed toward theneighbors. A neighbor told methat sometimes coyotes yappingwill wake her at night. Betterkeep small animals in at night. Pray for each other and our nation. We are in some tryingtimes.

8B The Herald-Advocate, September 18, 2014 The Classifieds F F r r u u i i t t o o f f t t h h e e V V i i n n e e If you were to make a check list of all the wonderful qualitiesone fruit could possess sweet,tart, tasty raw or cooked, fresh ordried, with delicious juice, vari ous flavors, edible leaves and nu tritious oil the grape and itsvine would check every box. Itmust be for that reason that noother fruit, no matter how glam orous its reputation, is grown andproduced as much as the grape. The cultivation of grapes dates back to the beginning of civiliza tion on the Asian and Europeancontinents. In North America,when the Europeans arrived,they found almost countless va rieties of wild grapes, manyfound nowhere else in the world. Most of those wild grapes were considered inedible by theearly colonists, although theywere an elemental food of theNative Americans. Soon, how ever, the wild American grapesbecame hybridized with Euro pean varieties, and grapes be came more widely consumed.One of the notable varieties is thesuper-delicious Concord grape. The grapevine has a presence around the globe, and the fruitand the plant are used in a widevariety of ways. From the begin ning, wine was made fromgrapes, but it wasn't long beforeit was discovered that grapeswere wonderful dried, and thereis even mention of raisins in theBible. The practice of making oil from the seeds also is ancient andappears to have begun soon aftercultivation began. The same istrue for the leaves, which areeaten fresh or brined, and a ver sion of stuffed grape leaves notonly is integral to Greek cuisine,but found in the foods of almost KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow every Middle Eastern country. The fruit itself is a good source of vitamins A and C, and antiox idants. The leaves are especiallyhigh in vitamin A and minerals,while the oil or extract from theseeds also contain antioxidantsthat may be helpful in loweringcholesterol and fighting heartdisease. Keep grapes in the coldest part of the refrigerator wrapped in aperforated plastic bag to allowexcess moisture to escape. Un fortunately, grapes won't ripenafter they've been picked. When it comes to cooking with grapes, most people think ofjams or pies, but even sweetgrapes add an interesting dimen sion of flavor to savory dishes,and the more bitter grapes, suchas some of the wild varieties likethe Texas Muscadine, take on asweetness when sauteed orroasted. If you've never triedgrape leaves, you are missing atangy treat. They are the perfectreceptacle for a wide variety ofstuffings.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the HealthDepartment at 115 K.D. RevellRoad in Wauchula. This free event is part of Na tional Seat Check Saturday, andwill include car seat inspectionsby certified child passengersafety technicians. Tech-nicianswill be on-hand to teach parentsand caregivers how to choosethe right car seats for their chil dren and how to install and usethem correctly. After inspection, if a new car seat is required, it will be avail able free with an old seat trade-in, or $20 if no trade-in. Car seats, booster seats and seat belts are often used incor rectly. One child under age 13 isinvolved in a crash every 34 sec onds. No parent wants to ever get it wrong when it comes to theirchildrens safety. Thats why theHealth Department is hostingthis consumer education eventduring National Seat Check Sat urday. Parents can come out andknow for sure that their kids areas safe as possible when ridingin a car. Motor vehicle crashes are a leading killer of children ages 1to 13. Using ageand size-ap propriate child restraints is thebest way to reduce these deaths. In 2012, over one-third of child passengers killed in carcrashes werent in car seats,booster seats, or wearing seatbelts. They may have survived ifthey had been buckled up. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportations Na tional Highway Traffic SafetyAdministration, National SeatCheck Saturday is part of ChildPassenger Safety Week ob served Sept. 14-20. The week isdedicated to teaching parentsand caregivers about the impor tance of correct installation anduse of car seats, booster seatsand seat belts. Parents will alsobe reminded of the importanceof registering car seats with themanufacturer so they can be no tified in the event of a recall. The NHTSA recommends keeping children rear-facing aslong as possible up to the topheight or weight allowed bytheir particular seats. Once achild outgrows the rear-facingcar seat, he is ready to travel ina forward-facing car seat with aharness. After outgrowing the car seats, children should be placedin booster seats until theyre bigenough for seat belts to fit prop erly without help from a boosterseat. The safest place for all kids under 13 is in the back seat ofthe car.

10B The Herald-Advocate, September 18, 2014 Q: Can I clean my own chimney? I don't want tospend tons of money and betold I have to make expensiverepairs just to use the fireplace. Rich C. in Portland, Maine A: Your reluctance is under standable, because the chimneycleaning industry, like other con tractor services, has suffered inrecent years from scams. Un scrupulous scammers often tar get new homeowners or seniors,advertising unbelievably lowprices for a chimney cleaning.They then sock the homeowner,after a cursory (or even no) in spection of their chimney, with ahuge cleaning and repair bill. Still, if you want to safely use your fireplace, an annual clean ing and inspection is extremelyimportant. Contact more thanone chimney cleaning service(three or more if possible) andget a price quote. Don't agree toany work until you've seen esti mates from a few services. Don'tbe pressured into a sale you'renot ready for. Your home's furnace is another item that should get a checkupfrom a heating professional.Again, if the contractor inspect ing your furnace says repairwork needs to be done, get mul tiple estimates before agreeing to anything. Those concerns aside, you can do some basic inspection andmaintenance tasks yourself.These don't replace the contrac tor, but help you get familiarwith your house's heating sys tems. You can visually inspect the firebox and damper, and checkthe bottom part of the chimneyflue. Open the damper and use aflashlight to look up the flue,checking for debris like leaves ornests, as well as creosote build-up. This black, sticky gunk is ex tremly flammable and is one ofthe things professional sweepstake care of. It's also difficult toremove without the right equip ment. Clean the damper and firebox by removing ashes and unburntwood (when they're fully cooled)and brushing ashes and residuefrom the visible parts of the fire place. Get ready to turn on the heat ing system now, as well. Buy re placement filters and schedulethe furnace's annual inspection.Clean dust and debris from theregisters and the air intake cover. HOME TIP: To improve a furnace's heating efficiency, con sider adding insulation to heatingducts. Send your questions or home tipsto firstname.lastname@example.org. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc. This Is A Hammer By Samantha Mazzotta Recreational fishing provides an $8.9-billion benefit to thestates economy, which supports79,200 fishing related jobs greater than in any other state. Florida fishing license fees and federal aid provide criticalinvestments to enhance recre ational fishing and boating. StateStatutes ensure revenues fromfees paid by hunters and sportfishers may not be diverted topurposes other than the admin istration of fish and wildlife pro grams by the FWC. This is aguarantee that your licensemoney will not be diverted toother purposes. In addition to fishing license fees, a percentage paid on thepurchase of fishing equipmentand motorboat fuels and importduties on boats are placed into afederal trust fund administeredby the U.S. Fish & WildlifeService. States and territories arethen allocated their share basedon the number of paid fishing-li cense holders and the statesland and water area. On the freshwater side, these funds allow the Division ofFreshwater Fisheries Manage-ment to produce more than threemillion sport fish per year forstocking public waters, includ ing about two million large mouth bass. Boating access and safety also benefit. Fuel purchases forboats are a major source of Sport Fish Restoration funds, so 15percent of those dollars go toboating programs. These in-clude an average of 30 boating-access projects annually withlocal government entities. In ad dition, the FWC maintains morethan 240 boat ramps statewide,and provides location and accessinformation on about 1,700 pub lic boat ramps. Through TrophyCatch, the FWC has partnered with thefishing industry to reduce theneed for regulations and to bringextra value to anglers. Reward ing anglers for releasing trophybass, rather than prohibitingtheir harvest, accomplishesmany of the same goals and hasadditional benefits. TrophyCatch is a citizen-sci ence, data-collection programthat rewards anglers who docu ment and release bass heavierthan eight pounds. By providingvaluable rewards, donated by in dustry partners such as those atICAST, TrophyCatch acquireshard-to-obtain informationabout when, where and how tro phy bass are caught in Florida.That information helps deter mine which conservation effortsare most effective. It also en courages live release of trophybass and keeps the mature fe males in their native waters. Thanks to Brandt Information Services, a new Trophy-Catch website (TrophyCatch-Florida.com) wasintroduced at ICAST. Every angler who fishes in Florida should go online andregister. Registering makes youeligible for a drawing for aPhoenix bass boat, powered byMercury Marine and equippedwith a Power-Pole shallow-water anchoring system andMotorGuide trolling motor all donated by the industry tosupport this conservation effort. While on the site, check out the rules and be sure to have ascale, camera and tape measurewith you next time you go fish ing. If you catch, document andrelease a qualifying bass, youwill earn at least $100 in giftcards from Bass Pro Shops,Dicks Sporting Goods and/orRapala, as well as a shirt fromBass King Clothing, certificate,decal and bragging rights on theWeb and with your social mediafriends. In recognition of the impor tance of license fees and SportFish Restoration funds, theWildlife Foundation of Florida,Florida Sportsman magazine and other valued partners alsolaunched the I Do Floridafishing license campaign atICAST (FloridaFishingLicense-Campaign.com). This campaign encourages all anglers, even those who are ex empt, to buy a Florida fishing li cense to contribute directly toimproving fishing opportunities.Every new paid license holder,in addition to the cost of the li cense, helps the FWC get $8more from Sport Fish Restora tion. So you spend $17 but gen erate $25 to support your sportand conserve our fish and theirhabitats. Lets buy a license as an investment in the outdoors wecherish, said Karl Wickstrom,founder and editor of FloridaSportsman. Think of it not asa burden but a bargain, he ad-ded. Go to License.MyFWC.-com or call 888-Fish Florida(888-347-4356) to order your li cense and to ensure access to alifetime of fun, safe and sustain able fishing opportunities. TrophyCatch Boasts New Website Stump The Swami By John Szeligo Well, Football Fans, we are three weeks into the season and the surprises have been amazing. Upsets abound! Many of them are hardto fathom. Boston College beating Southern Cal! East Carolina overVirginia Tech got attention if you consider that an upset. South Car olina played up to preseason expectations in beating Georgia in agreat game. Across the nation, there have been many great gamesin this young season. The Gators took three overtimes to dispose of the Kentucky Wildcats. That in itself was a major upset. Florida has now won 28straight against UK. Can the Gators take the SEC East? The SEC is now 27-2 versus out of conference teams. This week, the SEC has 7 of the Top 15 teams in the polls. Unquestion ably, the SEC is the best conference. Urban Meyer showed what makes him tick this weekend. When you get beat at home in your opener by a team that couldn't beatEast Carolina this week, what do you do to assert yourself? You runup a 66-0 score on Kent St.! Stay Classy Urban. Time to add one more quarterback to the Heisman Race. West Virginias Clint Trickett went 37-49 for 511 yards and 4 touchdownsSaturday. He is currently ranked third in the nation with over 1,200yards this season. His 511 yards against Maryland is a new schoolrecord for an away game total. Trickett was chosen the Walter CampPlayer of the week for his performance. He will get his prime timechance this Saturday at home when the Mountaineers host Okla homa on Fox TV Nationwide. Now, lets look at this weeks Bill O Fare...1. Florida at Alabama Are the Gators 10 points better than West Virginia? Surely they are, so UF should beat a team that onlybeat WVU by 10. UF 27 Bama 24. 2. Clemson at FSU Noles handle the test from the ACC as usual. Especially with two weeks to prepare. FSU 35 Clemson 21. 3. Bethune-Cookman at UCF Knights get their first win. UCF 38 BCC 13. 4. Oklahoma at West Virginia Sooners are in everyones list to make the four teams in the playoff. Will they be there after the Mountaineers Air Raid offense watches them come in ranked andgo home spanked? WVU 33 Oklahoma 27. 5. Marshall at Akron Zips pose a threat to the Thundering Herd. Marshall has put up over 700 yards in their l ast two games each. Marshall 41 Akron 13. 6. South Carolina at Vanderbilt Gamecocks should roll. USC 54 Vanderbilt 14. 7. Miami at Nebraska A win by the Canes over a Big 10 team would help the ACC image. The ACC is better than the Big 10in 2014. Miami 30 Nebraska 27. 8. Oregon at Washington St. Wazzu has the QB who leads the nation in passing while the Ducks have a Heisman Candidate atQB. This could be the most entertaining game on Saturday. Oregon56 WSU 38. 9. Mississippi St. at LSU Bulldogs are solid but that Saturday night in Baton Rouge mystic prevails. LSU 34 MSU 23. 10. Indiana at Missouri Hoosiers lost to Bowling Green Missouri will destroy them. Missouri 54 Indiana 13. 11. Rutgers at Navy The Scarlet Knights were the punch line to jokes, everyones Big East Homecoming Game and the bot tom feeder. Now, they are in the Big 10 where they are competitive.Navy 34 Rutgers 28. 12. Maryland at Syracuse Terps should rebound in the dome. Orange have no passing threat. Maryland 34 Syracuse 24. 13. North Carolina at East Carolina Pirates show why they are the best football program in the state. ECU 41 UNC 28. 14. Texas A&M at SMU Mustangs are really down in 2014. Aggies 59 SMU 3. 15. Central Michigan at Kansas Might be the JayHawks last chance to win a game. CMU is a solid MAC team. Kansas 27CMU 25. 16. Auburn at Kansas St. KSU has a chance for the Big 12 to make a statement. Will they or can they take advantage of it?Auburn 33 KSU 26 17. UConn at USF Bulls get a win. USF 31 UConn 17.18. Tampa at Atlanta Bucs seem to be snake bit. Atlanta 31 Tampa 21. 19. Kansas City at Miami Fish rebound. Miami 33 KC 24.20. Indianapolis at Jacksonville No Luck for the Jags.

September 18, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 11B By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-Advocate Thinking of whats ahead may be difficult for some, butthe Hardee County SchoolBoard already has the next fiveyears planned. Finance Director Greg Harrelson has updated the DistrictFacilities Work Program for fis cal years 2014-15 to 2018-19.This program shows the plannedexpenses to be made to facilitiesacross the district. It must alsobe financially feasible. Although the board unani mously approved this five-yearplan, it is updated every year. This five-year plan is used for various reasons, including fund ing, planning and as the author itative source forfacilities-related information. Some of the expenditures in the plan are for heating, ventila tion and air conditioning sys tems. The budget for these ex penses increases from $108,031for the 2014-15 fiscal year to$255,550 for years 2015 through2018 and then increases again to$275,000 for the 2018-19 year. HVAC work is expected to be done at Bowling Green Elemen tary, the Hardee Com-munityEducation Center, the old juniorhigh, Hardee Senior High, thesuperintendents office, mainte nance department, NorthWauchula Ele-mentary, PioneerAcademy, transportation depart ment, Wauchula Elementary andZolfo Springs Elementary. Expenditures for mainte nance/repairs between the 2015-19 fiscal years are estimated tobe about $639,384. The lowestamount is projected to be for2016-17 at $135,409 and thehighest is for the 2017-18 fiscal year at $183,427. In the 2014-15 fiscal year, $250,000 is budgeted for thepurchase of school buses. Theprojected amount then variesfrom $390,000 to $260,000 forfiscal years 2015 through 2019. For roofing improvements districtwide, $145,000 is bud geted for the current year. It thenremains at $150,000 for the nextfour years. Harrelson said if all the money for one fiscal year isntused within that year, then it willbe placed in a reserve where itcan be used for other projectsduring the next year. He alsosaid that if more money isneeded due to unexpected ex penses, money will be taken outof the reserve, adjusted into thebudget and then used for a par ticular project.

CITY OF WAUCHULAS/ Richard K. Nadaskay Jr.Mayor ATTESTS/Holly SmithCity Clerk 9:18c DEAR DR. ROACH: Trav eling for a length of time say, six hours or more on atrain, bus or plane makes merather tired. Others I discussedthis with have had similar ex periences. I find this strange,because for most of the traveltime I am sitting doing nothingbut reading or daydreaming.My question is: Do physiologi cal changes taking place in thebody brought on by the longperiod of sitting while in tran sit account for the fatigue, or isit simply mental boredom? R.S. ANSWER: I think it's both mental and physical. Prolongedsitting recently has been shownto put people at increased risk forheart disease, as well as theknown risk of blood clots. Get ting up and walking around is al ways a good idea physically, andmight help mentally as well. More than simple tiredness, chronic fatigue syndrome is all-encompassing. The booklet on itexplains the illness and its treat ment. To obtain a copy, write: Dr.Roach No. 304W, Box536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or moneyorder (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6Canada with the recipient'sprinted name and address. Pleaseallow four weeks for delivery. DEAR DR. ROACH: Or ange juice was a staple forbreakfast when we were grow ing up. Mom would say,"Hurry up and drink your or ange juice before it loses its vi tamins." I've noticed thatwhen a carton of OJ is left outfor even five minutes, it swellsup, apparently due to somepretty volatile organic com pounds. I've learned throughthe years that Mom was usu ally right. Was she right again? M.E.K. ANSWER: Mom was par tially right. Orange juice willlose its vitamins over time, espe cially if it gets warm. But thatdoesn't happen in five minutes.Products that sit on the shelf fora long time lose their vitamins.As a student in organic chem istry, I did an experiment to findhow much vitamin C was in cer tain products. Fresh fruits andvegetables (especially red bellpeppers) had a great deal. Acanned juice purportedly high inC had none at all. Even vitaminC tablets had lost 20 percent oftheir stated value even beforetheir expiration date. Orange juice containers will swell if bacteria in the juice re lease gas, at which point itshould (obviously) be discarded. However, I wonder if the swelling in five minutes has todo with the air in the carton ex panding due to the relative warmth of the air compared withthe refrigerator. DEAR DR. ROACH: I keep getting little black splintersunder my fingernails that dis appear on their own. I alsohave little black splintersunder both of my big toenailsthat have not disappeared andhave been there for a while.What is this? D.F. ANSWER: These sounds like splinter hemorrhages. The mostcommon cause of these is traumato the nail bed, but some derma tologic conditions can cause thisas well, such as psoriasis andlichen planus. However, the mostworrisome (but unusual) condi tion is infective endocarditis, aninfection of the heart valves. Anyfever or fatigue should bepromptly evaluated by an in ternist.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.

Tonight (Thursday), the young Cats travel to Arcadia toface the junior Bulldogs in a 7p.m. game. Next weeks game isan unusual home start of 7:30p.m. against the Frostproof jun ior Bulldogs. In last weeks game, Hardee halted Fort Meade attempts withsacks and interceptions, whilemaking key plays themselves. It was a physical defensive battle. We had many kids step up in key situations of the game togive us a good home victory,remarked Head Coach RodSmith. Isis Garza and Kai Washinton picked off the interceptions,while Gloigens Metayer sackedthe opposing quarterback twiceand Jacob Rickett and BooneParis also recorded sacks. In on the tackle parade were Fabian Molina, Damar Harris,Rickett, Carlton Tanner, Garza,Jaylin Ramirez, Larrett Smith,Armando Gonzales, Paris, An derson Severe and Lonnie Mor ris. Washington was quarterback and was 7-11 in passing. Molina snared a pair for 83 yards, Harrisone for a 10-yard gain and Paristwo for 22 yards. Jason Nicholsgrabbed two for seven yards, in cluding a TD pop pass in thesecond quarter which gaveHardee a 6-0 lead at halftime. In the offensive running game, four players did most ofthe damage. Moiina had threecarries for 34 yards, including afourth-quarter six-yard TD runto push the final score to 12-0. Marcelin Cimeus carried the ball 10 times for 47 tough yards.Jacob Rickett added 10 carriesfor 76 yards and Washingtonkept the ball seven times to gain20 yards. JV Cats Stop Miners The Peace River Valley Cit rus Growers Association is gear ing up for an eventful fall,starting off with three growerevents. We are hosting our fall Grower Round Table today(Thursday) at 11:30 a.m. Con tinued grower interest on thetopic of Brazils citrus industryled the PRVCGA Board of Di rectors to ask citrus extensionagent Dr. Steve Futch, to speak.The topic: Field observations and citrus grower discussionfrom the Brazilian citrus indus try trip, July 2014. It will be held at Bright Hour Ranch in Arcadia. All citrusgrowers are invited to attend.The meeting will be sponsoredby Carden & Associates In-surance, which will be providinglunch at no cost to attendees.

Increasing costs inBrazil vs. prices received willalso be a topic, along with land regulations and alternative landoptions. Newly added to our list of events, PRVCGA and Univer-sity of Florida/IFAS will behosting two citrus grower fo rums.

Sports QuizBy Chris Richcreek By MARIA TRUJILLOOf The Herald-AdvocateHHS students are avidly working to have a brighter fu ture. Recently several students at Hardee Senior High, from ninth to 11th grade, signed contracts with Advancement Via Individual Determination to better prepare themselves to have a more successful future. AVID is a non-profit organi zation that helps students pre pare for college or other post-secondary opportunities by closing the achievement gap. This gap refers to the difference in academic performance by cer tain groups generally defined by socioeconomic status, race or gender. Research has shown that students in AVID consistently outperform their peers, therefore closing that achievement gap. Through AVID students de velop critical thinking, literacy and math skills across all con tent areas. This program also helps teach skills and behaviors for academic success, provides intensive support and strong stu dent/teacher relationships and also creates a positive peer group for students. To be a part of this program, potential AVID students must be interviewed to see which kids are interested and are willing to do the extra work that comes along with being in the class. Students must also take an honors-level course or higher as a freshman. At HHS, there are two ninthgrade AVID elective classes taught by Rod Smith, one class for 10th graders under the in struction of Micah Myers, and Daphne Hayes teaches 11th graders. There are currently about 100 AVID students enrolled in the four classes, each class holding between 25 and 30 students. By signing the AVID contract, students agreed to work hard, do their schoolwork and keep their grades up as well as have good behavior. Parents also had to sign the contracts, and agree to make sure their child is abiding by the AVID rules. AVIDs philosophy is Hold students accountable to the high est standards, provide academic and social support, and they will rise to the challenge. Freshman who recently signed to be in AVID were Bri Augustus, Erika Garcia, Joel Lee, Adam Olvera, Lilianna Ponce, Trevor Scott and Rose Youte. Sophomores entering the pro gram were Thomas Atchley, Emily Boyette, Luis Castillo, Soraya Castillo, Alexa Chapa, Marixa Garcia, Annette Mon dragon, Fernanda Ramos and Emory Smith.
