Also coming from the school is one of the boldest dares to date. It seems the elementary school accepted the Ice Bucket C hallenge after being nominated by Hardee Junior High. In turn, North Wauchula has challenged Hardee County School Board members Paul Samuels, Thomas Trevino, Jan Platt, Teresa Crawford and Mildred Smith; Schools Superintend ent David Durastanti; and Deputy Super intendent Bob Shayman. The dare is a popular national event to rai se money for research into Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Nominees must dump a bucket o f ice water over their heads once challenged, or donate $100 to the ALS Association. Some do both. In fact, NW E raised $440 for the cause. Shown here taking the dousing are (top) Principal Tracey Nix, (bottom left) secondgrade teacher Joy Roberts and (bottom right) Exceptional Student Education teacher Karen Hale. DOUBLE DOG DARE By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate A South Carolina man al legedly used an Internet chatroom to prey on a vulnerableyoung Hardee County girl. After being alerted to the al leged crime by the child’s grand parents, detectives with theHardee County Sheriff’s Officeinvestigated the matter and ulti mately secured an arrest warrantfor Freddie James Clark, 28, ofGreenville, S.C. Sheriff’s Maj. Randy Dey said Clark was arrested on theHardee warrant by Greenvilleauthorities last month. He wastaken into custody on the third-degree felony charge of makingobscene communications. He has remained incarcerated in South Carolina, awaiting ex tradition to Florida and Hardee County. Dey said he is expectedto be booked into the HardeeCounty Jail by Friday of thisweek. Dey said the Hardee County Sheriff’s Office contracts withprivate transport providers forsuch out-of-state transfers, find ing it the most economical method of moving suspects out side of Florida. According to a complaint af fidavit filed by Det. DavidDrake, the 13-year-old ZolfoSprings girl accessed the Inter net in search of help concerningher suicidal thoughts. She found,he said, a suicide help chat room on Facebook. There, Drake said, she first came into contact with Clark. Investigation allegedly revealed contacts between the twospanning the period of time fromMay 4 to July 17, Drake said.See HCSO 2A Clark By JOAN SEAMANOf The Herald-Advocate Over two dozen Florida laws became effective on Wednes-day. While 158 other new laws, in cluding the 2014-15 statebudget, went into effect at thestart of the state fiscal year onJuly 1, another 32 went into ef fect on Oct. 1. The only one ve toed by the governor was aproposed law allowing theFlorida Department of Trans-portation to raise speed limits onsome highways by five miles perhour. Gov. Rick Scott signed a new law that prohibits schools fromdisciplining students who playwith simulated weapons, in-cluding fashioning a gun from aPop Tart, which got an 8-year-old Maryland boy suspendedlast fall. State Sen. Greg Evers, who sponsored the new law, said itwould prevent unnecessary sus pensions. He cited an incidentwhen two children were readinga book with a picture of a WildWest show and one person in ithad a gun. One child said he hada cap gun at home that lookedthe same. He was sent to theprincipal and expelled. Other recent laws also affect the schools. House Bill 485 sig nificantly increases the penaltiesfor teachers and other school au thority figures who take advan tage of students sexually. Senate Bill 864, approved this summer, requires schools to setup a process through which par ents can contest the selectionSee IT’S THE LAW 2A By JIM KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate Long time coach and educator Herbert C. “Cliff” Lunn, Jr. onTuesday was elected city com missioner in Bowling Green,winning by a margin of 77-10over minister Charles Ray“Chuck” Dixon.

Now, the race is on between incumbent Juan Otero and Ser gio Jimenez Jr. The town, which switched to a four-day work week on Sept.1, held a four-day qualifying pe riod for potential candidates tofill Seat 1 on the commission. By Wednesday morning of last week, only incumbent Oterohad applied. But before the close of the fil ing period at 5 p.m. on Thurs-day, Otero drew an opponent inJimenez. Otero is a long-time commis sioner, and currently serves asthe town’s mayor as well. Jimenez is a political new comer in the town. Both men will wage their campaigns in the next fewweeks, trying to sway the town’sregistered voters into their re spective camps. That municipal election will be held on Monday, Oct. 27, atTown Hall. By MICHAEL KELLYOf The Herald-Advocate A Zolfo Springs slaughter house is seeking a waiver to ex pand its facility to increase thenumber of animals that can beprocessed in the plant by about25 percent. Florida Beef is asking the Hardee County Commission toallow the company to add 3,500square feet to its existing build ing, situated on 1.89 acres zonedfor agriculture at 441 SR 64 E. The facility, which has oper ated as a slaughterhouse on andoff for a number of years withvarious owners, was reopened asFlorida Beef under currentowner Clay Lee in 2003. It currently processes about 150 head of cattle per day. It employs 70 people and could add an additional 10 em ployees if allowed to expand thebusiness to slaughter up to 200head per day. The crowded facility cur rently limits the company fromutilizing some portions of thecarcass, which can amount toabout $65 per head of usableproducts being wasted. Most of the expansion would increase the size of the coolerspace by making it taller, andwould not add to the overallfootprint of the facility. Neighboring property owners have some concerns about theexpansion, mainly noise andodor related. Commissioners wanted more time to think about the situationand continued the hearing until10 a.m. today (Thursday). Paul Cutchen, whose prop erty adjoins Florida Beef, saidsometimes when the wind blowsout of the northwest it “smellslike you pulled the lid off a sep tic tank.” He feels increasing thenumber of animals goingthrough the plant will only makethe problem worse, unless thewastewater system is addressed.

C ORRECTIONS & LARIFICATIONS IT’S THE LAWContinued From 1A of certain textbooks and class room materials. Another one involving schools mandates simplifyingthe formula for grading schools,and does away with penalties forgrades in the 2014-15 schoolyear, considering it a transitionalyear in school grading. HB 989 increases the felony penalties for people who live offthe proceeds of others throughprostitution or when crimes in volve the trafficking of children.The law prohibits minors fromworking in adult theaters, andrequires adult theaters to verifythe ages of all employees. That law creates a new thirddegree felony for those who per manently brand traffickingvictims, and removes a Statuteof Limitations for human-traf ficking violations. SB 526 and SB 528 made wide-ranging changes at crack ing down on sex offenders, in cluding toughening sentencesand strengthening registrationand reporting requirements forsexual offenders. Two otherlaws targeting sexual predatorsand offenders went into effect onJuly 1. Another key bill among the new ones effective Oct. 1 is HB59, which calls for people whoattack a pregnant woman to becharged with crimes against un born children, regardless of theterm of pregnancy. SB 224 bans the sale of elec tronic cigarettes to minors, sim ilar to bans on sale of othertobacco products to children. Finally, HB 427 increases the penalty for burglars who crosscounty lines to commit break-insand then quickly flee to nearbycounties. County Manager Lex Al-brit ton said he has made site visitsto the facility during the night,and agrees there is an awful odorat times. Albritton said the smell is from the wastewater system notfunctioning properly. “If you putthe money into the system, youcan fix it and eliminate the sep tic smell,” he said. Perry Knight, who was hired by Florida Beef in July to makethe plant more efficient andcompliant with industry auditstandards, said the companybegan taking steps to address thewastewater system last week. “I am going to work very hard to be a good neighbor,” hesaid. He went on to say he feels the issue can and will be corrected,in addition to some sort of bar rier being put in place to cutdown on the noise levels comingfrom the plant. Knight said expanding the fa cility is imperative for the suc cess of Florida Beef to continuein Hardee County. “We aregoing to grow, and we want it tobe here,” he said Commissioner Grady Johnson said he felt the company wasvery important to the localranchers and would have devas tating effects if it left the county. “If there was no noise and smell I would be fine with it,”Cutchen said, “I would likesome sort of assurance thingswill be done properly.” Johnson made a motion last week to approve the requestedwaiver but could not get a sec ond and the motion died. Commissioner Mike Thompson then made a motion to delaythe decision by a week andgather more information. He re quested the company bring anengineer to assure the commis sion the odor problem can becontrolled, and wanted theowner present to assure it will bedone. “We want to keep Florida Beef here,” he said before mak ing the motion to continue themeeting to 10 a.m. on Oct. 2. The motion was passed by a 5-0 vote.EXPANDContinued From 1ALUNN WINSContinued From 1A degree in PE from FSU in 1976.He is employed at Hardee HighSchool as a migrant advocateand homeless contact. He taughtphysical education at BowlingGreen Elementary for 27 years,coached junior varsity and var sity football for 22 years, andcoached JV baseball for over 15years at HHS.

Pierce WoodMemorial Hospital in Arcadiauntil it closed, in the juvenilejustice system, and for the De partment of Children & Familiesin Hardee, Highlands, Polk andHillsborough counties. He isserving on the city’s parks andrecreation committee.HCSOContinued From 1A Maj. Dey alleged the man first portrayed himself as a 16-year-old while conversing with theyoung teen. Later, Clark report edly said he was 17, and ulti mately admitted — on May 27— to being 28 years old. Clark allegedly led the 13year-old into sexually explicitmessaging back and forth, themajor charged. Conversationsrevolved around cutting them selves and each other, and lick ing the blood. They alsoinvolved sexual acts. Further, sheriff’s authorities here allege, Clark escalated thetalks, telling the girl what hewanted to do with her if theywere to meet in person. Then,Dey said, he asked where theclosest bus station to the girl’shome was, and talked aboutcoming to be with her or sendingher money for a bus or planeticket for her to come to him. Dey said the girl’s grandpar ents became aware of the Face book activity and alertedauthorities. He said detectiveshere have attended schools onsuch Internet crimes, and havebeen trained in portraying ateenager online. With detectives taking over conversations with Clark onFacebook, however, Clark be came suspicious. Dey said the suspect even called the child’s home, tellingthe grandfather he was aGreenville law enforcement of ficer and then claiming that inSouth Carolina, if individuals“tell each other they loved eachother, then the laws were nulland void.” Dey said lacking sufficient cause to obtain an arrest warrantfor Clark, detectives Drake andAndrew McGuckin traveled toSouth Carolina to interview him.During that interview, he said,Clark confessed to the crime. The detectives traveled back to Hardee County, where the ar rest warrant was issued. It wasserved in Greenville and Clarkwas held for transport here. “We sent people out of state because we thought this wasvery important,” Dey said. Hesaid the Sheriff’s Office firmlybelieved Clark to be a threat tothe child. “If the communication had not been stopped by the grand parents, it is very likely Clarkwould have traveled here tomeet the child or she would haveran away to meet him,” Drakeconcluded in his report. Dey said the Sheriff’s Office is keenly aware of the dangerspresented to children online, andcontinues to caution parents andgrandparents to strictly monitoryoungsters’ Internet and Face book activity.

Refinery outages in both Canada and Texas caused the steady decline in gasoline to come to a halt and even spike in some markets. The Pensacola metro area in Florida saw a sixcent rise in the average price of gas. "Refinery maintenance, especially in the Gulf, is causing the tightening of supplies in some areas," said Josh Carrasco, spokesman, AAA The Auto Club Group. "As a result of these refinery issues, the downward pressure on gas prices motorists saw earlier in the month has stopped." Several companies in the Gulf of U.S. refining capacity, an nounced unplanned mainte nance, significantly reducing output from the area. These out ages come as other refineries in the region are conducting sea sonal maintenance.

West Texas Inter mediate crude rose $1.13 this week to close at $93.54 a barrel on Friday. "Overall, motorists are still seeing value at the pump," said Carrasco. "Gas prices are at a seven-month low and we expect gasoline to continue trending downward in the coming duction here in the U.S. should continue placing downward pressure on oil and gasoline."

October 2, 2014, The Herald-Advocate 5A There are times when I think Fate is telling me not to attend arodeo, and the Manatee Countyranch rodeo held this past springwas one of those! First, I missed the exit and went about 10 miles too farsouth. When I pulled in the park ing area, they were already an nouncing the teams in the GrandEntry, as I had been given thewrong starting time. It was theday before Easter, and a coldbreeze was coming off thewater, leaving us all scramblingfor jackets by the end of the firstevent — not only did I not havea jacket, I wore a short-sleeveshirt! Fortunately, it was an actionpacked ranch rodeo, and fun towatch! Hardee County was present on six of the 15 teams that werecompeting. Cummings Cattle had Cole Corson, Justin Peebles andLacey Cumbee, and SwitchRanch had Peck Harris, MattCarlton, Robert Fussell andJesse Gattis. Brandon Dietergave a helping hand to the SMRteam, while Marshall Godseydid likewise for the Rocking KPteam. Christy Newsome steppedin at the last minute as the cow girl on the Audubon Ranch team(whose usual roster was notpresent, with Dennis Carlton Jr.out with a leg injury). Last (butcertainly not least!) was PaulaScott on the OP Cattle team —she is the wife of FINR cowboyJames Scott (who was one of thejudges). The first event was the team sorting. The bovines won thisone, with only three teams beingable to complete it, with SwitchRanch being one of them, hav ing sorted out their three consec utively numbered calves in 1:04,good enough to win the event!This is where Matt Carlton getsto show off his talents! Then the action changed over to roping — with the team doc toring, where they must bothhead and heel the steer, in orderfor the “doctoring” to be done(the female team member mustmark its head with chalk). The teams fared much better, with nine teams completing theevent. Marshall’s team (Rock-ing KP) had a time of 40 sec onds flat, but had a penalty offive seconds for only heelingone hind leg. Switch Ranch wasin at 47 seconds flat (also with afive-second penalty), but wasthen disqualified, as they failedto remove the rope from the sad dle horn. The roping and branding event was up next. This is one ofthe ones where the brander hasto run out to the calf, brand it,then run back to the brandingcircle, when the time stops.Usually it is the female teammember doing the branding, soif the cowboys have any smarts,they will lead the calf over to thebranding circle once they haveroped it! With all the ropers on his usual team, Marshall Godseyrarely puts a rope in his hand,but for the Rocking KP team, hewas helping out with the ropingduties. And for this event, he ledthe team to a time of 56.0 sec onds. Also doing a lot of the roping was Paula Scott, but her team(OP Cattle) received a no-timein this event. The CummingsCattle team likewise received ano-time, but it was fun to watchJustin Peebles hit the ground ashe got pulled off of his horse!And Switch Ranch got the jobdone in 47.0 seconds. Then came my favorite event, the double muggin’! OP Cattle and Audubon Ranch each re ceived a no-time, but all the oth ers got down and dirty and got itdone! Brandon Dieter (who was also on roping duty for the day)and the SMR team had a time of1:02, as did the Switch Ranchteam, but they got beat out by afraction of a second, with thewinning time being 1 minuteflat. Rocking KP had a time of1:49, and Cummings Cattle2:07. Once the steer is roped, Iconcentrate on the steer, and gotto watch Robert Fussell over shoot the animal, as he somer saulted past it! Thanks, Robert,for the entertainment! This ranch rodeo has its own special event for the finale —the woods-tying. A fence post ispounded into the ground, andthe steer must be roped, led overto the post, then tied to it. I neverdid hear the times for RockingKP and SMR, but OP Cattle’ssteer came untied. CummingsCattle finally had a good run,with a time of 36.0 seconds, andSwitch Ranch came in at 56.0seconds. Switch Ranch was our only winner for the day. And a three-year run was ended as the TopHand award went to a HendryCounty cowboy (with Peck Har ris having won in 2013, BrandonDieter in 2012, and Trae Adamsin 2011).Keep these “Bits,” boots andbridles riding.

Justin Peebles watches from horseback (back right), as he must rema in mounted after doing the roping. This was their best event, completing it in a time of 36.0 seconds.

Marshall Godsey of the Rocking KP Ranch team heads outto rope the steer in the woods-tying event. Paula Scott was one of the few female team members WHO got to rope, and here she is trying to rope the steer for the double muggin'. Unfortunately, t he steer crossed back over the line before she roped it, and her team, OP Cattle, received a no-ti me. The Switch Ranch team in the double-muggin' event -Robert Fussell ho lds the steer by its head, while Matt Carlton and Peck Harris try to flank it f rom the opposite side, and Matt "Catfish" Davis is coming in at the rear to help steady it. The roper was female team mate Jesse Gattis, who is out of the photo on horseback (as t he roper is not allowed to dismount in this event). Their time was 1:02 in this event. soc9:18-10:2c Financing Available With As Little As $25 Down!

The PATmade it 14-14 going into half time. Hardee received to start the second half. A fumbled handoffon the first play was recoveredby Frostproof at the Cats’ 25-yard line. The defense, helped by two Bulldogs penalties, stood firmand got the ball back after Frost proof went for it on fourth-and-20 from the 34-yard line. Hardee took over but quickly gave the ball back to the Bull dogs after Holley fumbled thewet football and Frostproof re covered at the Hardee 48. The Bulldogs picked up one first down before being forced topunt back to the Wildcats whotook over at their 15. Hardee’s next drive was kept alive twice by Frostproof mis takes. A roughing the punterpenalty gave the Cats a firstdown before Rodriquez wasback to punt again.

District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts onSouthwest Florida Water Man-agement District lands through out the year to help reduce thewild hog population. Wild hogs, which are not na tive to Florida, feed on roots,tubors and grubs by rooting withtheir broad snouts and can leavean area looking like a plowedfield. They also prey on nativewildlife, compete with nativespecies for food and transmitdiseases to other wild-life, live stock and humans. Ad-dition ally, hogs may facilitate thespread of exotic plant species bytransporting seeds and/or pro viding germination sites throughrooting. The District will use a threephase hunting system to allevi ate and decrease these impacts. “The three phases are designed to encourage attendanceand maximize the effectivenessof the event,” said Will Van-Gelder, the District’s Land Man agement Supervisor. The District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts whenthe damage they cause is at un acceptable levels. Damage fromhogs is occurring more fre quently and with increasingseverity. The first two phases of hunts will have separate registrationprocesses. Top producers fromPhase 1 will be awarded freehunts for Phase 2; top producersfrom Phase 2 will be asked toparticipate in hog managementactivities for Phase 3. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still huntswill be available. The programworks like this: Phase 1 Hunts E%/13=><+>398A3669--?< a.m. on Oct. 6, 2014.

P PA A Y YH HE E R R E E! NOINTERESTORFINANCECHARGES cl9:11tfc Before I became a Florida Fish & Wildlife ConservationCommission spokesman, I was areporter. FWC public informa tion coordinator Stan Kirklandwas my lifeline to anything out doors. Ever helpful and straightfor ward, Kirkland exemplifieswhat it means to be an FWCpublic information specialist.Kirkland retires this winter afterserving the state for just over 40years. Kirkland grew up freshwater fishing on Lake Seminole andthe Apalachicola River in Jack son County. His saltwater expe rience was limited until 1978,when he moved to Panama Cityand met David Barnes, whowould introduce him to theworld of inshore wade-fishing. “He showed me where to go, how to fish and the secrets,”Kirkland said. “There are somethings you need to pay attention to, and that’s what David taughtme.” While wade-fishing has plenty of benefits — no-costshoreline fishing license, anyonecan do it, low cost — not need ing a boat was a big sell forKirkland. “I can’t tell you howmany offshore trips I’ve said‘thanks but no thanks’ to,” saidKirkland, who would love to godeep-sea fishing but struggleswith intense seasickness. Today, Kirkland wade-fishes nearly every weekend exceptduring turkey hunting season. “Idon’t catch every time I go but,all things considered, I do OK,”he said. On his most recent trip,he caught two spotted seatrout,five flounder, a Spanish mack erel, and three undersized reddrum. We asked Kirkland to share some of his top wade-fishingtips before he leaves the agency,and here is what he had to share: Watch your tides. Never fish a low tide. High tides can betricky as well. If the water isn’tmoving, the bait is not moving.Get a pair of wading shoes ordiving boots and wear them re ligiously. There are a lot ofstingrays out there.Make sure you have a longstringer and let them float awayfrom you. In 25 years, Kirklandonly had one problem with ashark coming for his fish, but hesays he sure was glad those fishweren’t right next to him. Think like a fly fisherman and “match for the hatch” byusing bait on which fish are feeding. Kirkland prefers fingermullet, alewives and bull min nows. Don’t overfill your bait bucket. You only need 10 to 20specimens at a time. More thanthat can kill the bait. Protect yourself from the sun. Kirkland wears long sleeves, ahat, a Buff and good polarizingsunglasses and says all are amust. Of course, make sure youhave something to cover the but tons on your shirt if you plan touse a cast net for bait. Top Wade-Fishing Tips For A Good Day’s Catch *(&"'H&' %+63?31/<53A/C3A3?/<1/?2A=B@34=?27@1=B7.A92;.--;2?.;52,.7<.Florida also honors Florida veterans with a designation to their driver license or identification card. This feature gives veterans aneasy way to show proof of their veteran status, which is not alwaysan easy task. It is “hoped” that retailers and restaurants that offerdiscounts to military will accept the license with the “V” on it asproof that someone is a veteran. To add the blue “V” to a Florida license or ID card, veterans can visit any Florida driver license office, to include those operatedby county tax collectors. The Veteran Health Identification Card, issued by the Veterans Administration, is for identification and check-in at VA appoint ments. It cannot be used as a credit card or an insurance card, and itdoes not authorize or pay for care at non-VA facilities. In February 2014, VA began issuing the Veteran Health Identi fication Card to newly enrolled veterans and enrolled veterans whowere not previously issued the old VIC but requested an identifica tion card. As of May, VA has been mailing VHIC to six million en rolled veterans. Enrolled veterans who do not have the old VIC may contact their local VA medical center’s enrollment coordinator to arrange tohave their pictures taken for the new cards, or they may request aVHIC at their next VA health care appointment. Veterans must pro vide proper identification in order to receive the new cards.

Stump The Swami By John Szeligo Well, Football Fans, we have arrived in that magical month of October. The month of autumn leaves and crisp fall afternoons saysfootball. Reminiscent of the 1960s when legendary an nouncer, Chris Schenkle, would come on and say “What better way to spend a fallafternoon than watching college football!” A large cup of hot choco late and some French fries as you were dressed out in the colors ofyour team just seemed that he was right. This October will also bringthe first poll for the Final Four in a few weeks. Bobby Bowden and his wife Ann will return to Morgantown, W. Va., this weekend as honored guests for WVU’s Homecoming.They will be the Grand Marshals of the parade and be honored athalftime of the game. The couple called Morgantown home forBobby’s first head coaching job at West Virginia. Bowden was theoffensive coordinator under Jim Carlen in 1969 and became headcoach when Carlen left for Texas Tech in 1970. Bobby had a 42-26record at WVU with a Peach Bowl win over N.C. St. in 1975. Hissons, Terry and Tommy, both played at WVU before entering coach ing themselves. He even had a daughter who became a MountaineerCheerleader. On a side note, Bowden was offered the head coachingjob at Marshall which he considered not knowing Carlen would begoing at that point. He turned the Herd down to take the WVU jobsoon after. Rick Tolley took the Marshall Job and died in the Nov.14, 1970 plane crash that season. WVU had one game left, withMaryland. Bowden asked Marshall if his team could wear Mar shall’s jersey to honor the fallen. The uniforms had come home onan equipment truck and had not even been unloaded in the aftermathof the crash. Bowden then put green crosses with MU on the backof the helmets to honor the 75 deceased. Coaches on the HOT SEAT? There seems to be a few already this season. Kansas fired Charlie Weiss this week.

Under the FWCs Florida Black Bear Management Plan, approved in 2012, seven Bear Management Units will be es tablished throughout the state. The BMU approach will allow the FWC to manage bears based on the characteristics of bears, people and habitat in different parts of Florida. The first steps are being taken to create the South-Central BMU to man age the bear subpopulation on the Lake Wales Ridge and sur rounding areas. Workshops will offer the public a chance to provide input on local bear issues and allow inter ested people to sign up to be active members of the South-Central Bear Stakeholder Group. The meetings will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the following locations: Blvd. The workshops will give the FWC a better understanding of the local perspective on bear management in south-central Florida, said Dave Telesco, FWC Bear Management Pro gram coordinator.

This puppy is a mixed female. She is white and black, has a short coat and a long tail. Her adoption fee is $45. DEAR PAW'S CORNER: I'm a bit leery about taking myyear-old Lab "Trip" anywherebesides the dog park. But mygirlfriend prefers hiking insome of the nearby state parksand keeps inviting me and thedog along. What's your take? —Chuck in Cleveland DEAR CHUCK: My take? Grab Trip's leash and go! As longas there are no outright prohibi tions on bringing dogs into parksand forest reserves, take advan tage of the opportunity to intro duce your dog to a newenvironment. Go to the park's website before the hike to review any rules re garding dogs. Most of the timeyou'll be required to keep Trip onhis leash while on a trail. Useyour discretion in other areas,and make sure Trip is trainedwell enough to respond to yourverbal commands when he's off-leash. With any hike, but especially in fall, check the weather fore cast. A chilly day may mean put ting a pet sweater on Trip, and ofcourse if it's raining you maywant to reschedule. Bring waterfor you and for him, and a dis posable or folding bowl (avail able at camping stores) for himto drink from. After the hike, brush Trip's coat before he gets into the car,and check his paws for burrs, de bris or injuries. Once you're backhome, give his coat a thoroughcheck for ticks, and remove themimmediately. The sooner ticksare removed, the less likely he isto contract an infection from abite. Finally, consider yourself lucky: You've got a girlfriendwho likes you and your dog, andwants both of you to experiencethe great outdoors with her.Send your questions or com ments to (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

The 15th annual Florida Black Bear & Wildlife Conser-vationFestival will be held Saturday,Oct. 11, in the town of Umatilla,in northern Lake County. The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission isone of the festival’s many part ners. Nearby is the Ocala Na tional Forest, home to the largestsubpopulation of Florida blackbears. “Get outside, enjoy thebeautiful fall weather and learnabout Florida’s unique and di verse wildlife,” said Cathy Con nolly of the FWC’s black bearmanagement program. “Central Florida boasts the highest density of bears in thestate and can truly be called bearcountry. But that distinctioncomes with the responsibility oflearning about safely coexistingwith bears,” Con-nolly said.“Our challenge is getting peopleto securely store their garbage,so bears don’t develop the habitof coming into neighborhoodsfor an easy meal and instead stayin the forest where they belong.” The free, family-oriented fes tival at Caldwell Park begins at9 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. For more on the festival, visit and click on“Black Bear & Wildlife Festi val,” go to call (352) 669-3511 for addi tional information.

It was as if thewhole room resounded as othersshared their military branch ofservice. That was a very uniquefew minutes. Each of those thathad served was so proud. Forme, a wonderful time of sharingour heritage! On Tuesday of last week, I went to my podiatrist to havethat sliver of glass removed.Once again, there was no suc cess.

TOP CATCH 10:2c C C h h o o c c o o l l a a t t e e W W i i t t h h a a n n A A c c c c e e n n t t o o n n S S a a v v o o r r y y The origins of mole — that fa mous Mexican sauce that is re ally a stew — are as deep,complex and rich as the spicy,sweet, nutty multilayered mix ture itself. It's rumored that theSpaniards gave mole its namewhen they misheard the Aztecsrefer to the stew as a "molli." An other story goes that in the 17thcentury, Dominican sisters inPuebla scrambled to put a mealtogether for the visiting arch bishop. They used the ingredi ents that they had on hand, suchas dried chilies, chocolate andstale bread, to make a sauce forturkey. Mole can be any or all of those ingredients. The often-intimidat ing concoction represents a deli cious and gorgeous pinnacle ofthe many cultures that influencedMexican cuisine, with manypieces of it coming together inone glorious sauce that has manyincarnations. One debated aspect of mole lore is just where in Mexico itoriginated, and of course, whomakes it the best. The fact is,mole is served all over Mexico,and takes on different character istics depending on where in thecountry it is made and, ulti mately, the taste preferences ofthe cook preparing it. Mole is most common in Puebla, relating back to the storyof the nuns. But Oaxaca is not tobe outdone. It's also the home ofcomplex, distinctive moles. Andwhile there are countless molevariations, there is agreementamong most Mexican cooks thatthere are seven notable recipes.These recipes represent the dif ferent colors and tastes of thefoundation of every mole, whichare chilies. It's also agreed thatthe traditional Mexican mole is a KitchenDivaBy Angela Medearis & Gina Harlow special occasion dish, as it takestime and care to create. Mole Negro is probably the most famous recipe. The almost-black, spicy sauce is what mostpeople have tasted if they'veeaten dishes from interior Mex ico. Like the Mexican cooks forcenturies, you can make yourunique rendition of this fascinat ing dish that celebrates the ingre dients of this colorful country.Mole also can be purchasedready-made as a paste or powder,or in jars or cans, but homemadeis best.
