Several cowboys and a cowgirl from Hardee County will be vying to become the winners of the buckles and trophy saddles and,more importantly, bragging rights that they are the best of the best! And those teams are:The Stevens Land & Cat-tle team, which won both the Hendry County and Southeastern/Ocala ranch rodeos on the same weekendin late February. This team consists of Charles Robert Stevens III,Marshall Godsey, Billy Adams, Cody Story, and female team mem ber Christi Pryor. Stevens is the primary roper on the team, withAdams right there to assist (these two were former PRCA team-rop ing partners). Godsey is the designated bronc rider, leaving Story tobe the mugger, with Pryor jumping in whenever she can. She haswon the stampede race the past several years, with Adams as h er helper. The Switch Ranch/Zoetis team, which won the Mid-Florida Ranchers ranch rodeo held in Fruitland Park in late May. This teamis made up of Peck Harris, Matt Carlton, Robert Fussell, Clint Cat fish Davis, and female team member Jesse Gattis. Harris and Carl ton hold down the roping duties, with Fussell the bronc rider. Thisteam excels at the team branding event, having won at both quali fiers and last years Finals. The Holmstead Cattle team, which won the Sumter County ranch rodeo in mid-March. Cole Corson is the local one on this team,along with Coy Mueller, Ike Stein, Austin Havens and female teammember LuJean Waters. Corson and Mueller are the ropers, but thisis a new team, so their talents are not well-known. The season runs from the Florida State Fair in mid-February and ends with the one held at the Arcadia Rodeo grounds on Aug. 1-2.The Hardee County Cattlemens Association holds its annual ranchrodeo on the third weekend in July each year. This years Finals should be very interesting, with nine of the 16 teams being newcomers. But they will have stiff competition fromthe regulars Stevens Land was the 2013 overall winner and ateam with Harris and Fussell, along with Hardee Countian WilliamPerry, was the 2012 overall winner. Each team must consist of four cowboys and one cowgirl. At least three of the team members who competed at the qualifier must beon the team at the Finals to prevent any team from loading upwith ringers. Each team will compete in four events each night, such that they will complete all eight events: ranch bronc riding, roping and brand ing, the stampede race, wild-colt riding, team doctoring, womenssorting, double muggin, and wild-cow milking. Most of the events are completed by each team individually, but the stampede race, wild-colt riding and wild-cow milking are donefour teams at a time, side-by-side. There will also be a boot scrambleeach night for the little tykes. On Friday morning there is a cow-dog competition, and the first performance of the ranch rodeo that night. Saturday is the day full of events, with a ranch horse competition from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. inside the arena, while the Cowboy HeritageFestival runs from 10 to 5. This includes a Cracker cow camp andNative American tribe encampment, demonstrations of whip, saddleand spur making, leather crafts, and cowboy artwork, accompaniedby cowboy poetry and storytelling, music and other entertainmentall day. There is a Whip Popping Competition starting at noon, withthe winners showing off their skills in the arena on Saturday night. Also taking place all day Saturday is the beef cookoff. Since its inception, this competition has become almost as fierce as the onegoing on inside the arena. There is also swamp cabbage cooking forthe sampling.

Kellys Column By Jim Former Hardee County Sheriff Doyle Bryan of Bowling Green passed away Aug. 13 at age of 86. His pastor, Rev. Amy Harper of the First United Methodist Church of Bowling Green, said his life was a gift to us. Doyle hada life well lived. He loved much and was much loved. He was a life-long Bowling Green resident and once owned and operated Doyles Meat Market. He was in law enforcement 20 yearsincluding Bowling Green police chief and county sheriff from 1981to 1993. Doyle liked to hunt, fish, cook, and spend time with familyand friends. He was a member of the local Rotary Club and a faithfulchurch member. Doyle left evidence of a life well lived and a legacy of love, the pastor concluded. His son Derren Bryan said his dad was a good man, had lots of friends, and was a national salesman for a premier bath tub company.He had a deep Christian faith, worked hard, loved his family anddisplayed Christian values. He worked at Bryans Grocery and Spiveys Grocery, and teamed with Guy Carlton for a slaughter house and meat market inthe Torrey community. Doyle then worked for Hardee Sheriff New ton Murdock and became police chief in 1975. In 1980 he ran for sheriff with no money but lots of enthusiasm, visiting most homes in the county. His values included everyonehad dignity. Integrity and trust were important values. Doyle retiredin 1993. Doyle loved to go to the Everglades. He loved his wife Cather ine, who passed away from cancer, and loved his second wifeJeanne, who saved Daddy. They were married 13 years ago. Doyle had a good sense of humor and had a long, fulfilling life.Derren said his father recently predicted the church would be filled for his funeral. He was right. Rev. Steve Polk was Doyles pastor for a couple of years and also spoke very highly of him and his advice for a new pastor. Former Hardee County Sheriff Newton H. Murdock of Lake land passed away Aug. 31 at age 80, 18 days after the passing offormer Hardee Sheriff Doyle Bryan. He was born in Asford, Ala. The funeral service was held Sept. 4 at First Baptist Church at the Mall in Lakeland where he was amember the past 13 years. N.H. was a very good friend and is sur vived by his wife Christine of 61 years and three daughters, two sis ters, eight grandchildren, and 15 great-grandchildren, said Rev. GeneWells. He moved to Winter Haven at age 14 and graduated fromWinter Haven High School. He served in the National Guard and became a Florida Highway Patrol officer in Hardee. He later was elected Hardee sheriff andserved 16 years, leaving to become a major and run the ManateeCounty Jail. He missed being sheriff and tried to regain that post inHardee, but Bryan was re-elected. Newt later became a crop adjuster. He was a lifetime member of Kiwanis Club and one year was named the outstanding Kiwanispresident in Florida. N.H. was a man of faith, a man of prayer and had a great sense of humor, said Rev. Wells. A favorite saying was Its not what yougain but what you give, that measures the worth of the life that welive. A favorite greeting was Happy good morning. Songs at hisfuneral included Love Lifted Me and When We All Get ToHeaven. Rev. Ron Nalls, who was Newts pastor at Wauchula Hills Bap tist Church and neighbor, said N.H. was a community leader andpreached on Just A Little Talk With Jesus. Rev. Nalls said Mur dock was a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, God in the flesh.Rev. Nalls urged anyone in attendance who was not a Christian tobe born again and experience restoration and renewal, comfort andreconciliation. To end the funeral service Newts grandchildren and greatgrandchildren sang a favorite song You Are My Sunshine. Rev.Nalls and his wife Eileen served Wauchula Hills Baptist Churchfrom 1972-77 and have lived in Lakeland the past 37 years. I was privileged to know both sheriffs. At Newts funeral I vis ited with Charles Abbott, one of Hardees best baseball pitchers inhistory who now lives in the Knollwood subdivision in Wauchula. Don Griffin, who once owned Bay Laundry in Wauchula, now lives in Auburndale. He worked for Hardee Sheriff Murdock andtaught Sunday School at Wauchula Hills Baptist. Attending Newts funeral was Hobson Strain, a big Gator fan and tax collector in Polk County for 30 years 1964 to 1994. Heknew the late Curtis Ezelle who served as Hardees tax collector foralmost 48 years. Curtis Ezelles goal was to be the longest serving tax collector. I always wanted to be the oldest retired tax collector, said Strain. A Wauchula business recently advertised, among other things, a cornhole tournament. This is a game where you try to toss a corn bag into a sloped piece of plywood with a round hole. This game isplayed often during pre-football game tailgate parties and at othergatherings. A Frostproof reader who grew up in the 1960s, has sent us an ad copy and note that cornhole in bygone times had a vulgar mean ing and that young folks should be educated. A look in the dic tionary confirmed that. The reader has seen this word on signs and windows all over, including Georgia and South Carolina and signed the note as mor tified. This is an example of a word that has changed meaning over the years. In yesteryear the word gay meant happy. In recent yearsthe word has taken on another meaning. We live in changing times,and even our language is evolving. A better name wo uld be cornbag toss tournament. The American Cancer Society offers this advice for avoiding cancer: do not use tobacco, eats lots of fruits and vegetables, exerciseregularly, maintain a healthy weight, and get regular health screen-ings. The ACS says cancer will affect 1 in 3 Americans. It is the sec ond leading cause of death in the U.S. after cardio/vascular disease. The Bush Institute in Dallas, Texas, is a public policy center with the mission of advancing freedom at home and across theglobe, including freedom from ignorance, disease and tyranny, andpromoting free market economics, education reform, global health,economic growth and human freedom. Former President George W.Bush is chair. He also has a Military Service Initiative dedicated tohonoring the brave men and women who have served our nationsmilitary. His wife Laura Bush is chair of the Womens Initiative which works to improve access to education, health care and economic op portunity for women. The Bush Institute is at the George W. BushPresidential Center, Library and Museum.

After trading 3-and-outs in the opening series of the firstquarter, we took control with a37-yard pass and catch for a TDand never looked back, saidSmith.

Overall the Wildcats 2-1 and are 0-0 in District 13,as they havent played any district games yet. After a trip to Frost proof this Friday, they start their district encounters with an unusualThursday trip Oct. 2 to Sarasota to face Booker. Currently DeSoto leads the district standings with an overall 30 record and 1-0 in district after defeating Booker 20-6.

Booker is 2-2overall and 0-1 in the district and Bayshore is 0-3 overall and 0-1 inthe district. The JV Cats are undefeated. Their record is only 3-0 but, more importantly, those games were all shutouts. They have beaten op ponents 77-0. The Sept. 4 game at DeSoto was rained out and thegame this week was cancelled because Lake Placid doesnt haveenough players to field a JV squad. The young Cats host Sebringon Oct. 2. The Hardee junior high got a good start with a 36-12 win at HilGustat last Tuesday. This weeks game was at home against D eSoto. Next weeks is at Avon Park, followed by a trip to DeSoto on Oct.7 as the Heartland Conference team they play twice this season. The volleyball girls split games last week. Both the varsity and JV lost to DeSoto and beat Fort Meade. Both squads are improvingin offense and defense. The girls hosted Lemon Bay Tuesday in itsonly action for the week. Next weeks matches are at Sebring onTuesday and Fort Meade on Thursday. Cross country had some huge meets to contend with last week. They went to The Villages for the Buffalo Invitational with over 100in each race and on to Gainesville for the Mt. Dew Invitational,where they faced hundreds of contenders in each race. Senior TylerSmith and junior Maria Munoz continue to lead the Hardee teamsthrough their paces. Hardee swim team results didnt get to our office in time to make this weeks edition.

Their only match this week was at home against Frostproof. The boys squad got amatch completed last week. Super frosh Jett Dexter continued tolead the team, but soph Jhett See is closing in, only one shot downin last weeks match. We didnt get any news from the junior high girls opening soft ball game last week, but understand it was a 21-1 blowout. Aftertwo games this week, we will probably have more information.

6A The Herald-Advocate, September 25, 2014 Jesus, Jimmy Stewart and John Paul II. Actor Jim Caviezel believes that all three of those men are re flected in Coach BobLadouceur, the character heplays in the new film "When theGame Stands Tall," currentlyrunning in movie theaters in Se-bring and Lakeland. Inspired by actual events, "When the Game Stands Tall"tells the story of Concord's(Calif.) De La Salle High Schoolfootball team which, between1992 and 2004, went on thelongest winning streak in sportshistory with 151 consecutivewins. Ironically, Ladouceur wasn't especially focused on winning. Instead, his goal was to build character in the young men putin his charge, to instill them withskills and virtues that wouldserve them not just on the foot-ball field but in life. During an interview on the radio program "ChristopherCloseup," Caviezel explainedthat one of the reasons he tookthe role stems from a long-agoencounter with "It's a Wonder-ful Life" star Jimmy Stewart.Caviezel recalled the veteranactor telling him, "Young man,whatever you do, make goodmovies." And what qualifies as a good movie in Caviezel's mind? "A story that has redemption, a story that has real love. That'swhat Ladouceur teaches: reallove and responsibility. Thoseboys would look him in the eye(and know) he loves them. Thatis true authenticity. Why aren'tmore coaches like that? "It's the worst three-letter word ever: Ego. Edge God Out,"Caviezel continued. "So authen ticity is important, be-causethere was no one more authenticthan Christ. Lad-ouceur takesthat seriously." Caviezel added that he also admires Ladouceur for being arole model for youth. He said,"Things changed in the 80swhen the saying came out, I'mnot your kids' role model.' Ithink that's hurt our culture (this belief) that I can do what-ever I want whenever I want it. "When Pope John Paul came to the United States, he said thatevery generation of Americansneeds to know that freedom ex-ists not to do what you like, buthaving the right to do what youought. And he also said to setyourself up to be a saint. BobLadouceur has these principles." In light of his winning record, Ladouceur received many offersto coach college or NFL teamsand earn a seven-figure salary.Yet he turned them all down be-cause he believed that his highschool students needed his guid ance more. He wanted to build the next generation of leaders who woulddo something positive in societyand become "men" in the fullsense of the word. Caviezel added, "You think that when (guys) turn 25 or 30, they become men. That's notnecessarily true anymore. Iknow a lot of 40-, 50and 60-year-old guys.' What's the dif-ference between a man' and aguy?' The guy never accepts re sponsibility. In order to be aman, you have to step up to yourresponsibility." Caviezel models responsibility in his own life as the fatherof three adopted children and ashusband to his wife, Kerri. Hecalls his family and friends "thewalking presence of Christ inmy life." And despite his busyschedule working in TV andfilm, the actor always makestime for prayer. He says, "If Idon't pray, I have no gratitudeand no appreciation. If I losethose two things, I have no zestfor life." Caviezel hopes that audiences turn out to see "When the GameStands Tall" in theaters to senda message to Hollywood thatmovies like this can makemoney and to simply enjoyan entertaining film that's appro priate for the whole family. He said, "It's not just a football movie. It's about life. Thevalue of this film is role models,and the focus is love."For a free copy of "ListeningWhen God Speaks," write: TheChristophers, 5 HanoverSquare, New York, NY 10004; ore-mail: email@example.com. Caviezel Plays Coach In New Movie Bowling Green Hires Silva As City Clerk By JIM KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate The Bowling Green City Commission on Monday nightvoted 3-1 to hire Carmen Silvaas the new city clerk pendingcity attorney Gerald Buhr's ap proval of application timelines. Commissioner Sam Fite made a motion, which dies for lack ofa second, for the city to hireJuana Ayala, a former city em ployee who now works for theTown of Zolfo Springs. Commissioner Stuart Dur-astanti asked for the recommenda tion of city manager JerryConerly, since the city clerk isunder his supervision. Conerlyrecommended Silva who hasworked for the city for the pasttwo years. "She is already inhouse and doing a good job."The salary is $36,000. Commissioner Richard Barone made a motion to hireSilva, seconded by Durastanti.Mayor Shirley Tucker voted infavor of the motion, and Fitevoted no. There were four appli cations for the city clerk post. Fite on Sept. 9 had requested the city readvertise the positionsince there were only two candi dates and there was not muchtime for review by the commis-sion. Fite said the position was advertised in the local newspaperAug. 28 and allowed 7 days forresponse but was posted on JobServices website on Aug. 27with an ending date of Oct. 26.He said Silva only has a two-year degree past high school. Herecommended a $25,000 begin-ning salary as an entry level payfor state em-ployment wage sta-tistics for court, municipal or license clerks, with no data avail-able for city clerks in Florida orHardee County. The former city clerk Pam Northup, has worked for the cityfor over 35 years, was paid$50,000, is on paid administra tive leave and is retiring. Fitesaid she was paid 2 1/2 monthssalary plus $30,000 for the cityto avoid a federal lawsuit alleg-ing age discrimination and ahostile work environment. Durastanti said the Hardee school system posts a job open-ing and allows 5 days to apply.Mayor Tucker said the city man ager has to work with the cityclerk. Fite made a motion for Silva to have a beginning salary of$25,000. It died for lack of asecond. The city commission voted 40 to renew a $200,000 line ofcredit with Wauchula State Bankat Conerly's request. This is incase the city needs shore-termfunding on projects paid for bygrants. He said sometime ittakes 90 days to get grant reim-bursements after work is com pleted. The Bowling Green City Commission on Tuesday, Sept.9, agreed to postpone hiring anew city clerk until at least Sept.22. There were only two appli cants, Kelvin Shepard anddeputy clerk Carmen Silva. Citymanger Jerry Conerly said Silvawas the only candidate with mu nicipal experience and was thebetter candidate. Commissioner Sam Fite wanted more time to review andreceive applications, and his mo tion to postpone was seconded by Steve spinks. The first reading of an ordi nance to increase city sewer andwater rates by three percentpassed unanimously. The commission denied a request by Charles Dixon to re move the Mason Dixon streetsigns and change the streetname. The commission also denied his request for the city to donatefive-plus acres to his ministry,New Beginnings, for a safehouse. He wanted to put the oldcity fire station trailer on theCommerce Park property or an-other site on Bryan Ave. "The mobile home is not suitable to be in the city, once a newfire/rescue building is con structed, said Fite. Conerly suggested new guidelines to bringing items to thecommission agenda. "Agendaitems are not for grandstandingor showboating." said Fite. The commission approved two new members to the cityrecreation committee. They areCollett Green and ChiquitaRobinson. There is money for four new American flags to bring the totalto 55, and the fall festival isplanned from 4 to 7 p.m. on Sat-urday, Oct. 18, said committeechair Jean Kelly. An event formilk and cookies with Santa forchildren is set for Friday, Dec. 5,from 5 to 7 p.m. Both eventswill be held at the old traindepot.

ROACH: Do you believe that lycopene, which isfound in certain foods such ascooked tomatoes, can help pre vent prostate cancer? C.R.O. ANSWER: Lycopene, a vita min A-like substance found intomatoes and watermelons, wasindeed thought to help preventprostate cancer. Unfortunately,further studies failed to supportthis. What has been shown more substantially is that a diet offresh fruits and vegetables helpsreduce risk for and even helpstreat prostate (and other) cancer.So it may be that lycopene by it-self isn't enough, but that all thedifferent healthy substancesfound in fruits and vegetablesare. This diet certainly reducesrisk of heart disease as well. The booklet on the prostate gland discusses enlargement andcancer.

ROACH: About four years ago I bought a vi bration machine. I'm a 64-year-old female with major back issues, but I can exerciseon the vibration machine withno problems. In fact, when Iwent in for my last bone den sity check, my bone densityhad increased over 14 percent!My doctor said it was unbeliev able. I understand that many re tirement homes may have thismachine. My ultimate wishwould be that hotels would allput one in their exercise room!Ten minutes on the machineequals 4 miles of jogging. L.J. ANSWER: Vibration ma chines have been around foryears, but the data supportingthem is patchy. Some studieshave found that they do not im-prove osteoporosis; others showa slight improvement. Manystudies have shown an improve-ment in low back pain and instrength. The machines are gen-erally safe, but they can cause in juries, especially in the elderly. Although vibration machines can improve fitness, I don't be lieve that 10 minutes on an exer-cise machine gives you all thebenefits of 4 miles of jogging.Bone density levels show a lot ofvariation, so a single large in crease doesn't always mean asustained gain. I think it's too early to recommend vibration therapy as a stan dard treatment for osteoporosis. It may have a role for peoplewho are unable to do other kindsof exercises. DEAR DR. ROACH: I have a white patch called vitiligo.My doctor is giving me Pro topic, but I do not see muchimprovement. Can you adviseme? I am afraid of this advanc ing. G.L. ANSWER: Vitiligo is a loss of color in the skin. It can affectpeople of any skin color, andlikely is due to the body's de stroying its own cells in this case, the cells that make the pig-ment for the skin. Vitiligo often progresses slowly. Tacrolimus (Protopic) iseffective in about 90 percent ofpeople treated for two months,according to one study. Steroidcreams and ultraviolet light alsoare used. It may be worthwhile tolook for other autoimmune dis eases, such as thyroid disease.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 25, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 7A Carroll Lopez Platt ThortonCOMPLAINTContinued From 1ABURGLARYContinued From 1A sion in November 2011 by Gov.Rick Scott. He also noted theagreement between Rapid Sys tems, the IDA and the EDA wasalready in place at the time. It also alleged Knight engaged in conduct to benefit hisprivate employer, Jim See, whois a member of the IDA. Kuhlmans complaint stated Knight promoted an IDA grantinvolving public money to acompany (Continuum Labs) hir ing Mr. Sees son, the son of fel low commissioner Sue Birgeand the spouse of IDA coordina tor Sara Pelham. Knight said he had no idea who Continuum Labs wouldhire four months after he votedto reappoint members to theIDA board, and it had nothing todo with his decision. The report also states no mat ters related to Rapid Systems orContinuum Labs have evercome before the County Com mission for its considerationduring the time Knight hasserved as a commissioner. According to the report, the Florida Department of Law En forcement and the State Attor neys Office investigatedmatters included in the com plaint from January 2012through September 2013, andboth agencies closed their inves tigations after determining nosubstantial criminal allegationswere established. sion, violated either statute as al leged in the complaint and dis missed it with the issuance ofthe public report, which wasmade available on Monday. Knight said on Tuesday he was glad the ordeal is over with which was filed in June 2013 and he is ready to move on. Kuhlman said he is disap pointed but not surprised by theruling. The complaint alleged Knight engaged in a course of conductincluding but not limited to vot ing on commission matters, pre venting matters from coming tothe commission for votes, andpromoting the appointment ofcertain persons to the IndustrialDevelopment Authority and theEconomic Development Coun cil. In an interview with investi gators, Knight denied conspiringwith anyone to appoint certainindividuals to the economic de velopment boards and noted allfive commissioners rank who isappointed to the boards and ap plicants with the highest com bined scores are selected. The complaint went on to al lege Knight tried to bury find ings of the auditor generalsreport to benefit Rapid Sys-tems, which employed his son. Knight responded that his son was already employed by RapidSystems before he was ap pointed to the County Commis I am here to set record straight and to let the truth be known. I am talking about the Shootout at the OK Corral for it was in thatgun battle that took place in 1881 in a place called Tombstone in theterritory of Arizona with two men running out of Dodge, sortaspeaking, because they suspected trouble might show up and theywere right. The shootout is estimated to have lasted only 30 seconds,leaving 3 dead. With all of this said, some lunatics want to call itthe Shootout at the OK Corral. Give me a break. Its not the OKCorral. There was nothing OK about it. It was the KOd Corral, aterm used in boxing for a knockout, so there! After 133 years youhave finally heard the truth! My stupid cousin Morphus recently robbed a bank in Georgia in the amount of $30,000 and would have gotten away with it if hehad not returned 20 minutes later to ask the lady clerk to give himchange for a $5 bill, which he said would be his wifes cut of theloot. After the law left with this John-Dillinger-wannabe, the cashierimmediately by called Womens Lib. My Aunt Bessie is always bragging on her hero who is her baby boy Inny, and here we are at the airport setting in the bleachers withan airplane overhead, awaiting Inny to make his first parachutejump. Through binoculars I could see Innys parachute mushroomout into a big white circle and Inny holding on for dear life. I askedAunt Bessie who were those two guys holding onto his boots. Oh,he makes friends everywhere he goes, she said. Ive found out laterthat they were the two guys who throwed him out of the airplanebecause he was scared to jump. The question is how long is eternity? Someone told me the an swer to this questions many long years ago. Should a bird return toearth every one million years and fly away with one grain of sandin his beak, then return again in another million years to fly awaywith just one grain of sand in his beak once again. When he has donethis over and over following another million years and at long lastthe earth is forever gone, then eternity has just begun. My mother-in-law Harpoon reminds me of a key part that is found in a washing machine, and thats the agitator! Ive got a so-called friend hes never there when I need him and hes always there when I dont need him. His name is Faron,and hes a fair-weather friend if Ive ever heard of one, so Ivechanged his name from Faron to Fahrenheit. I have said it before, and I will say it again that we all live on earth but in separate worlds. Like if I go to New York I will indeedtake my world with me, and so does everyone else no matter wherethey may go. Do you know why they call Saint Petersburg, Florida, Gods Waiting Room? Because so many retirees, especially from theNorth, choose to live out the remainder of their lives in Floridassunshine and its beautiful beaches. Have you ever heard of a marriage counselor counseling a mar ried couple but told them that he was sorry but he had to leave earlythis time because he and his wife were going through a divorce? You probably have not heard about it, but that dont mean it dont hap pen. She told her boyfriend that his underarms smelt so bad that it would make Right Guard take a left turn. Sugar Possum and me have what one might call a love-hate re lationship. She would love for me to leave, and I hate to go. I sometimes wonder will computers and the Internet run gos sipers found in every neighborhood across America and around theworld out of business? Well just have to wait and see, I suppose.While waiting for the truth, everybody out there keep your fingerscrossed, and a couple of toes wont hurt either. I just told my little honeybee Sugar Possum that whatever she stands for that Ill set down and stand for them, too.Truman A.

TheSHINE program supports theFlorida Depart-ment of ElderAffairs mission by providingfree and unbiased health insur ance counseling through a dedi cated network of volunteers,empowering Florida seniors tomake informed health-carechoices. For any person who is con fused or concerned about theirhealth insurance coverage, theSHINE program is the answer! And if you are up for a chal lenge, consider becoming a SHINE volunteer! Jim Tolbert retired to the Heartland area in 2011 and aftera couple months decided to seeka volunteer opportunity that waschallenging, interesting and thatwould make a difference in peo ples lives. His wife showed himan advertisement for SHINE,and it was exactly what he waslooking for. The busy time for a SHINE volunteer is during the AnnualEnrollment Period, starting Oct.15 to Dec. 7. After a SHINE vol unteer receives the initial train ing, the commitment can bebetween four to 10 hours perweek. Many of the interactionsfor SHINE volunteers are overthe phone, but sometimes thevolunteer will meet the clientsface-to-face. Tolbert is rewarded in know ing he can help a client who isstruggling to get by on a smallfixed income and is eligible forassistance with the MedicarePart B premium and with pre scription drug costs, but is notreceiving this assistance. He also enjoys doing presen tations at community events toensure everyone knows aboutSHINE and the services that areavailable free to any who are inneed! Tolbert suggests that anyone with a strong desire to solveproblems and with good listen ing and communication skillswould make a good SHINE vol unteer. It is also necessary tohave basic computer and Inter net skills. Tolbert believes itdoes not get any better thanhelping someone sort out theirinsurance needs -and maybesaving them some money!

Way Back When Fort Green News By Rilla Cooper 773-6710 Greetings from Fort Green!We are fortunate to live in Florida and enjoy the beautifulweather. Last week containedsome rainy days that made youwant to curl up with a goodbook. Vaguely I can rememberwhen a rainy day made me wantto clean closets or somethingworthwhile. but that was when Iwas younger! If you have not been out to Hardee Lakes you are missing atreat. It is really beautiful andsomething our county can beproud of, and which the touristswill flock to when they hear ofit. It is open seven days a weeknow, and you can keep some ofthe fish you catch but you mustread the sign to know whichones. It is equipped with play ground equipment and plenty ofbathhouses. They have a dumpstation and several RV sites withwater and electricity. It is agood place to have birthday par ties Please keep the sick in your prayers. Sam Rawls is still in the Lakeland hospital and I under stand Lawrence Roberts is alsoa patient. Christine Mur-dockhad to take chemo last week andthat cannot make anyone feelgood. George Wilson told me hehad another stent put in hisheart. Cline Punk Albritton isanticipating surgery today(Thursday) at Sarasota Memo rial. Paul Clark is also having aprocedure completed on hisheart today. As far as I know Opal Knight is still having rehab in theWauchula Hospital. SharonAdams is home from the hospi tal and enjoys company. TheDan Duke family has finally de feated the bug that plagued themfor over a week. Please pray forthe ones that are sick that youknow about. Johnmark and son Aaron Brown attended a ball game inAtlanta to celebrate both theirbirthdays. They had a good fa ther/son day, which will be goodmemories. Kaylee Hogenauer and Alyssa Barber had a good time at theGator game. This was a firstcollege game for Kaylee. Lastweek she attended a 4-H func tion near Ocala. Denise Erick son is the leader for the 4-HCounty Council. There are always good articles in the paper but three really im pressed me. Donnie Autry wrotea letter to the editor about all thenegative ads in the election. Thisseems to be the norm from thegrassroots to the presidential. Ienjoyed David Roy-als infor mation about the hurricanes thathit our county 10 years ago andthen Bill Lam-berts interestingarticle on Walter Olliff. It wouldbe interesting if there were away to determine if anyone inthis present era built their owncoffin. In the olden days, or theinformation in the books I read,when someone passed on some one in the family immediatelymade the coffin. Earl and Mary Bargeron have returned from vacation. Theywent up to a campground inGeorgetown, which is near theGeorgia/Alabama line. One oftheir daughters has a recre ational vehicle they keep thereyear-round. Their daughter toldthem all they needed to take onthe trip was their personal items as they had stocked the camperwith food and plenty of miscel laneous goodies. Now that is agood daughter and I know it waslots easier on Earl and Mary tojust drive up without pullingtheir camper. They had a supervacation but made sure they gotback home in time to attend ourrevival, which started last Sun day. Sherman and I were attending a visitation recently and thisyoung lady asked him if he rec ognized her. He didnt but whenshe told him she used to beJeanette Redding he instantly re membered her. He said that theywent together and every week end she was riding barrels andhe was roping off ol Target. Itbrought back good memories forboth of them and I enjoyedmeeting her and her husband,Jerry Gibson. It is hard to believe Colby Harrison will be 1 year old onSaturday.

Nationally, the price of gas fell six cents in the past week,marking a seven-week decline ingasoline prices. "Last week refineries switched from producing sum mer to winter-blend fuel," saidJosh Carrasco, spokesman forAAA The Auto Club Group."Winter-blend gas is cheaper toproduce, because it does not re quire the additives necessary insummer-blend. Also, here in theU.S. we continue benefitingfrom historic domestic oil pro duction. Both of these factorscontinue placing downwardpressure on gas prices." The price for a barrel of WTI oil rose 14 cents this week onthe NYMEX to close at $92.41.Oil supply reductions from theOrganization of Petroleum Ex porting Countries placed upwardpressure on oil prices. Libyashut down its largest oil fielddue to escalating tensions in thearea, while Saudi Arabia an nounced its largest reduction inoil exports in 18 months. OPECsupplies about 40 percent of theworlds oil. "Right now, domestic oil sup ply is outpacing demand," saidCarrasco. "Geo-political ten sions and supply cuts caused oilto increase this week, but look ing ahead it will be challengingfor OPEC to cut production tothe point that it has significantimpact, due to high crude pro duction in the U.S. Some mar kets could even see gas pricesdip below the $3 a gallon markby the end of the fourth quarter." The current national average for a gallon of regular unleadedgasoline is $3.34, six cents lessthan a week ago and 10 centscheaper than a month ago.Prices fell four cents this weekin Tennessee, to $3.14 a gallon.In Florida and Georgia the aver age price of gas sits at $3.29 agallon, three cents cheaper thanlast week.

Hot turbine exhaust gases from CT1-A and CT1-B pass through respective unfired heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) prior to exhaust ing through separate stacks. The steam from the two HRSGs is used to power a single nominal 70 MW steam turbine-electric generator. Units CT2-A and CT2-B operate in simple cycle mode (i.e. without further heat recovery). The plant includes a 4.4 million gallon stor age tank (EU-004) for distillate oil and a reciprocating internal combustion engine (RICE)driven emergency fire pump, as well as other miscellaneous unregulated and insignificant activities. Permitting Authority: Applications for Title V air operation permits for facilities that contain Acid Rain units are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (F.S.) and Chapters 62-4, 62-210, 62-213 and 62-214, of the Florida Ad ministrative Code (F.A.C.). The proposed project is not exempt from air permitting require ments and a Title V air operation permit is required to operate the facility. The Office of Permitting and Compliance in the Division of Air Resource Management is the Permitting Authority responsible for making a permit determination for this project. The Permitting Authoritys physical address is: 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, Florida. The Permitting Authoritys mailing address is: 2600 Blair Stone Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. The Permitting Authoritys telephone number is 850/717-9000. Project File: A complete project file is available for public inspection during the normal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (except legal holidays), at the address indicated above for the Permitting Authority. The complete project file in cludes the draft permit, the Statement of Basis, the application, and the information submitted by the applicant, exclusive of confidential records under Section 403.111, F.S. Interested persons may view the draft/proposed permit by visiting the following website: http://www.dep.state.fl.us/air/emission/apds/default.asp and entering the permit number shown above. Interested persons may contact the Permitting Authoritys project review engineer for additional information at the address or phone number listed above. Notice of Intent to Issue Permit: The Permitting Authority gives notice of its intent to issue a renewed Title V air operation permit to the applicant for the project described above. The applicant has provided reasonable assurance that continued operation of the existing equipment will not adversely impact air quality and that the project will comply with all appropriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210, 62-212, 62-213, 62-214, 62-296 and 62-297, F.A.C. The Permitting Authority will issue a final permit in accordance with the con ditions of the draft/proposed permit unless a response received in accordance with the fol lowing procedures results in a different decision or a significant change of terms or conditions. Comments: The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit for a period of 30 days from the date of publication of the Public Notice. Written comments must be received by the close of business (5:00 p.m.), on or before the end of this 30-day period by the Permitting Authority at the above address. As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Per mitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will publish notice of the time, date, and location in the Florida Administrative Register (FAR). If a public meeting is re quested within the 30-day comment period and conducted by the Permitting Authority, any oral and written comments received during the public meeting will also be considered by the Permitting Authority. If timely received written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the draft permit, the Permitting Authority shall issue a revised draft/proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or phone number. Petitions: A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 days of publication of the Public No tice or receipt of a written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. A petition for administrative hearing must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) with the Agency Clerk in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, Agency.Clerk@dep.state.fl.us before the deadline. The failure of any person to file a pe tition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the pre siding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authoritys action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agencys file or identification number, if known; (b) The name, address, any email address, telephone number and any facsimile number of the petitioner; the name, address, any email address, telephone number, and any facsimile number of the petitioners repre sentative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioners substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts the petitioner contends warrant re versal or modification of the agencys proposed action; (f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agencys pro posed action including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and, (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agencys proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authoritys action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Permitting Authoritys final action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available in this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electronic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Although EPAs 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPAs 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The final Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are received that result in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPAs 45day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/florida.htm. Objections: Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrators 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30-day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Wash ington, D.C. 20460.

Five local girls from First Missionary Baptist Church havetheir answers ready. They all hadunusual experiences whichcould set the tone for their futurecareers. Junior Joselyn Thompson, sophs Areah Wilkins, SaMyaiWilliams and Brooklyn Grahamand freshman Brilyance BriAugustus went on trips to findout more about real world jobs.Joselyn went to a hospital centerand the other four went to apower plant complex. Trip To Tampa Areah, Samyia, Bri and Brooklyn went to the third an nual Youth Energy Academy atthe Duke Energy generation fa cility in St. Petersburg July 31-Aug. 1. They were providedbreakfast and lunch each day. An invitation had come to their church for teens interestedin the summer two-day academyon plant safety, generation andmany other topics. The fourgirls were the only ones whosigned up. Each of the girls had a differ ent favorite experience. Theylearned about how the plant runsand the various careers in thatfield. They watched a safetyseminar, checking to see that aglove is not wearing or has ahole and other safety checks. They did a skit on interview ing and diversity in the work place and had a couple hands-onsessions and a tour of the plant. Bri said she enjoyed the demonstration of electric cars,ones you can plug in. One wastotally electric, another was ahybrid. Others enjoyed the discussion on potential jobs and salaries.They were told of scholarshipsavailable for post-high schooleducation. They were encouraged to major in math such as calculusand geometry and take as muchscience as they could. Since theplant runs on water, there arejobs for biologists. Others are inengineering, design, even line men as there are more womendoing that now. One demonstration and hands on was putting a generator to gether. They watched how linemen learn to put up lines and repairthem. Theres a rubber coatingon the line so birds can sit on it and not get hurt. Samyia liked the tour of the plant and seeing how thingslooked from the very top of theplant, how far you could see. Itwas interesting to see how theplant worked, she said. Joselyn The 16-year-old junior went to Newnan, Ga., outside At-lanta, and spent four days at theCancer Treatment Centers ofAmerica. She got the opportunity because her pastor, Dr. ReginaldFranklin is on two boards there,being familiar with the centerbecause his late wife Sonia wastreated there. He is on the patientadvisory council and is a cancerfighter ambassador. Joselyn went with him on one of his trips to Newnan for hisduties there. She said she losther grandmother to cancer andalso knew Mrs. Franklin beforeshe died and wanted to learnmore about what is being donefor cancer patients. She was there from July 2427. The visit began with a tourof the facility and introductionto the front desk where pa tients first come in. She watchedan acupuncturist doing the Chi nese-based treatment for a pa tient. The next day Joselyn was in troduced to oncology surgeon Dr. Johnson and accompaniedher on rounds. She got to scrubup and go with her into the op erating room where she wasdoing a breast biopsy and wentwith her while she talked to therelieved family and told themthere was no sign of malignancy. They have a new machine right there in the operating roomwhich can test for cancer. It wasa lot of standing for the 90 min utes of surgery. I got to see howthe anesthesiologist stays in theroom the whole time and moni tors the patient. And I went withthem afterward when there wasa group meeting discussing thepatients treatment plan, saidJoselyn. It was a lot to absorb and was very challenging. I didnt realizethe seriousness of their jobs untilI actually got to see them do it,she continued. Next up was clinic visits, where patients from as far awayas Texas, actually from all overthe world, come for chemother apy, radiation or follow-up ontheir treatment plans. For a small-town girl getting to go to a big-time hospital wasexciting. I want to get to knowmore and am looking at in stateand out-of-state tuitions to studymore, Joselyn concluded.

This includes current Town Manager Linda Roberson, whorecently accepted the award at adinner hosted by the RidgeLeague of Cities. The league ismade up of municipalities inHardee, DeSoto, Hillsborough,Highlands, Polk and Pascocounties. The award is a way to recog nize elected or appointed offi cials who have greatlycontributed to their town and tothe league, as well as helped topromote and advance theleagues goals. The award was created in 1994 as a way to honor NettieDraughon, a municipal em ployee for Plant City for 57years. She began working forthat city straight out of highschool as an assistant city clerk,eventually working up to the po sition of city manager. Draughon was described as diplomatic, dedicated, open-minded and able to achieve pos itive change for her city. Zolfo Springs Mayor Juan Otero thought Roberson fit thatdescription perfectly, and de-cided to nominate her. In his nomination letter, Otero says Roberson came to thetown in 1993 as assistant clerk at a very crucial and vulnerablemoment financially for thestruggling municipality, causedby the construction of a badsewer system. He credits her extensive knowledge of budgeting and ac counting for bringing the townout of bankruptcy and back onits feet. Her hard work and dedication didnt go unnoticed, and in 2001Roberson became finance direc tor. By late 2007 she was askedto step in as interim town man ager, and six months later filledthe position permanently, allwhile still acting as the townsfinance director. Otero says Roberson brought this little town of 1,827citizens roughly $10 million ingrant money, allowing the townto improve its infrastructure forthe benefit of its community. Roberson went on to refi nance the debt incurred by theoutdated sewer plant, build anew one and then expand thewet-weather storage. Under herwatch, the town has recon structed the wastewater treat ment plant, made significantimprovements to the existingwater plant, reconstructed road ways and improved drainage,says Otero. In 2004 after Hurricane Charley, Roberson also workedwith the Federal EmergencyManagement Agency and recon structed a modern police/-fire station, has had new sidewalksconstructed for school routesand has also obtained safetygrants to replace unsafe play ground equipment. Otero notes she also was in strumental in bringing a DollarGeneral store to the town. One of Robersons previous achievements includes beingnominated by the U.S. Depart-ment of Agriculture as a Cham pions of Change. This is aweekly initiative to highlightAmericans who make an impactin their communities. As a part of Champions of Change, Roberson went toWashington, D.C., to attend adiscussion at the White Houseabout policy recommendationsfor improvements in rural com munities. While there she wasable to meet and briefly speakwith President Barack Obama. Otero concludes by saying, Roberson is a very importantasset to the town of ZolfoSprings; she has accomplishedso much that it is nearly impos sible to count or list, for both thetown and its community. Roberson said that when her name was called as the recipientof the Nettie Draughon Award/-Municipal Official of the Year,she was genuinely shocked. Shethen thanked the town commis sioners, because she said shewould not have been able to ac complish so much without them. ZS Town Manager Honored By Ridge League Of Cities COURTESY PHOTOS Linda Roberson was the third person from the town of Zolfo Spring s since 2011 to win the Nettie Draughon Award. Celebrating her grand achievement were (from left) Am anda Gibson, town clerk; Laura Solorio, utilities clerk; Juan Otero, t own mayor; Roberson; and Janie Ayala, assistant town clerk. Zolfo Springs Town Manager Linda Roberson is presentedwith the Nettie Draughon Award by Auburndale MayorRichard Hamann, last years recipient, at a dinner meet ing. Roberson said she was very surprised to have won,and that she wouldnt be able to do the things she doeswithout the towns commissioners, the mayor and her em ployees. ABOUT ...

10B The Herald-Advocate, September 25, 2014 Stump The Swami By John Szeligo Well, Football Fans, four weeks are in the books and where do we stand? The best teams in college football are Oklahoma, Ala bama, Oregon and one of Baylor, Texas A&M or Auburn. The Tiderolled up more yards against Florida, 645 yards, than anyone couldhave imagined. Oklahoma was out-gained by West Virginia 513 to510 yards but used a punishing ground game to pull out a 45-33 winin Morgantown. Those were the Prime Time Games on Sa turday with late night in the east showing Oregon slip by a pesky Wash ington St. 38-31. After a 2013 season that was filled with gridiron stars, it was wondered who would step up in 2014. Never fear as this season hasseen the emergence of a whole new group just as tale nted as the last. Here are some examples. 1. Samage Perine is a true freshman running back at Oklahoma. With the starter out at West Virginia, he filled in and rushed 33 timesfor 245 yards and 4 touchdowns. He currently ranks 20th in the na tion but that will change after his performance this week. 2. Marshall QB Rakeem Cato is down from first or second in passing this year to 10th. The reason is a more balanced offense.Cato has thrown a touchdown pass in 36 straight games. The recordis 38 games held by Russell Wilson now with the Seahawks. 3. Remember Tyler Murphy, QB at Florida last year? He is at Boston College where he is 10th in the nation in rushing yards with500. He led the Eagles to a big upset over Southern Cal. 4. USF has freshman Marlon Mack from Sarasota Booker ranked 9th in rushing with 502 yards after this weeks win over Con necticut. 5. Quarterback leaders in the nation are Conner Halliday at Washington St. who has 1,901 passing yards and 16 touchdowns in2014. Second in the nation is West Virginias Clint Trickett with1,600 yards and 9 touchdown passes. 6. This years receivers are led by two who have already faced each other on opening day. Alabamas Amari Cooper has 43 recep tions for 655 yards and 5 touchdowns while West Virginia receiverKevin White is a close second with 42 receptions for 633 yards and3 touchdowns. Now lets look at this weeks Bill O Fare ...1. USF at Wisconsin Bulls will be worn down and run over. Wisconsin 56 USF 10. 2. Texas Tech at Oklahoma St. Pokes lost so many players from last year but still have a solid team. OSU 35 Texas Tech 23. 3. Middle Tennessee at Old Dominion Offensive explosion. MTSU 58 ODU 45. 4. Vanderbilt at Kentucky Wildcats last win in 2014. UK 34 Vanderbilt 31. 5. FSU at North Carolina St Wolfpack is 4-0 but it has been one bigger cupcake eating four mini cupcakes. FSU 45 NCSU 13. 6.

12B The Herald-Advocate, September 25, 2014 By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate When it comes to rental prop erties, the tenant needs to have arental agreement to be able toget almost anything done in theirunits. Its really spelled out in Florida Statutes 83.51, which is thebasic rules for landlords andtheir rentals. The issue came up recently at a Wauchula City Commissionmeeting when a renter com plained of black mold and un-safe electric at the place he rents.He was reluctant to move hiswife and children and wanted toknow how he could get theslumlord to fix things. Commissioner Ken Lambert explained that it was a problembetween the renter and the land lord and should be coveredwithin the lease arrangement. City Manager Terry Atchley later explained that the city istoo small to have its own inspec tor and refers folks to the countyfor inspections on anything in side the house. The city only handles mini mum maintenance or nuisancematters, some seen while driv ing around the city and some bycomplaint from a neighbor, etc.It could be in need of paint, bro ken windows, a semi-tractortrailer parked in a residentialarea, lawn overgrown, etc. People are given courtesy no tices. If they dont correct theproblem or if it is blatant, theyare cited and appear before thecitys special magistrate, whousually gives them a drop-offdate to get it done or face fines. When a person goes to the Hardee County Building De-partment to make a complaint,they are first asked if they havenotified the landlord in writing of the items needing attention. The county does building in spections for Bowling Green,Zolfo Springs, Wauchula andaround the county as well. Thecities do their own minimummaintenance checks on outdoormatters. If the tenant and landlord can not resolve their issues, the per son could return to the buildingdepartment, which will go andcheck it out and send a notice tothe landlord and tenant of whatthey have found. It is up to the landlord to take responsibility for his propertyand complete the necessary re pairs, particularly if they couldresult in injury or illness to theirtenant. Finally, it all comes back to the tenant-landlord rental agree ment, which should spell outwhat is expected of each one. How Do Renters Get Results?

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

The Department of Health shall register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes and shall issue identification cards to patients and caregivers.

Financial Impact Statement: Increased costs from this amendment to state and local governments cannot be determined. There will be additional regulatory and enforcement activities associated with the production and sale of medical marijuana. Fees will offset at least a portion of the regulatory costs. While sales tax may apply to pur chases, changes in revenue cannot reasonably be determined since the ex tent to which medical marijuana will be exempt from taxation is unclear without legislative or state administrative action.

It's been fine for the sum mer, but my neighbor tells me I need to start getting it ready for winter. What's the best way to do that? Karl in New Hampshire A: Unlike more southerly climes, pool owners in northern states have less time during the year to enjoy a swim. Many public and apartment pools open around Memorial Day (and this year, some had to wait a few more weeks due to chilly tem peratures) and close right after Labor Day. Homeowners can ex tend this period by a few weeks, but as leaves begin to fall, main tenance becomes more onerous. Therefore, it's time to start shutting down the backyard pool. The checklist for this procedure is pretty long, so refer to a poolcare site for exact details. But here are some brief guidelines: water treatment, and clean dirt and debris from the pool. disconnect the pump and filter. If you have a heater, disconnect and drain that as well. can drain the pool water down to side of the pool, or to just below the skimmer and return lines (so you can drain them). other plumbing completely, and plug them using the correct drain plugs. lines as recommended, to keep over the winter. refill the pool to the manufacturer's recommended level (typically about 6 inches below the tile line in a plaster pool, or 6 inches below the skimmer inlet in vinyl pools). debris, remove ladders and pool appliances, then cover the pool with its heavy-duty winter cover. check the water's chemical balance every couple of weeks and make sure that stains or scaling aren't starting to develop. HOME TIP: Why perform a final shock and chlorination before closing a pool for the win ter? Reducing bacteria will prevent algae from growing. Send your questions or home tips to email@example.com.
