According to Dr. Michelle Polk, princi pal, there were 298 seniors expected to receive diplomas as of Tues day morning.

Though the arena is covered,parking and socializing could be a soggy challenge. Rivera Mom Gets 7-1/2 Years In Baby’s Death By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate The mother of a 15-monthold baby who died at the handsof her boyfriend has been sen tenced to seven years and sixmonths in Florida State Prison. Kaycha Lynn Rivera, now 27, formerly of 310 W.Townsend St., Wauchula, wastransferred from the HardeeCounty Jail to state Departmentof Corrections custody lastweek. She is currently being held at the Florida Women’sReception Center in Ocala. The boyfriend, Hector Tavera Jaimes, now 28, wassentenced in 2016 to 10 yearsin prison in the baby’s death.He is currently serving his timein the Franklin Correctional In stitution Work Camp in Carra belle, DOC records said. The case had been plodding through the court system for 4-1/2 years. It was on Nov. 5, 2013, that Rivera took her baby boy, 15-month-old Joel Jordan Chavez,to the Emergency Room atFlorida Hospital Wauchula atabout 7 o’clock in the morning.Joel was not breathing. “He was unresponsive. His color had changed. The nursingstaff described his color asbluish-gray,” Wauchula PoliceChief John Eason said at thetime. Attempts to resuscitate the baby failed. Then, “due to the nature and amount of injuries observed(on the child) by the ER staff,”police were called in. Easonimmediately began an investi gation. The chief said an autopsy was conducted on the baby thatsame day. “This exam revealed numer ous severe injuries to (Joel’s)body,” Eason said. He addedthat the Medical Examiner’sOffice determined the cause of death as “homicide by headtrauma.” The ensuing investigation re vealed that two families residedin the Townsend Street house:Rivera, her three children andboyfriend Jaimes; and a hus band and wife along with theirthree children. A second Rivera child, a 21/2-year-old boy, “exhibitedsimilar injuries” and was hos pitalized for treatment.See MOMA2 COURTESY PHOTO The Lady Wildcats softball squad after beating arch-rival DeSoto County High School last Friday in Arcadiato win the Class 5A Region 3 title and earning a second consecutive appearance in the Florida High SchoolAthletic Association’s Softball Tournament Final Four. By TOM STAIK Of The Herald-Advocate The Lady Wildcats have set their sights on history – again. For the second consecutive year, the ladies in orange and blue from Hardee Senior High School have earneda slot in the Florida High School Athletic Associat ion’s Softball Tournament Final Four. The squad is scheduled to face Coral Springs Charter — the defending three-time state champions — on Sat urday in a 1:35 p.m. game at Vero Beach’s HistoricDodgertown. A win will propel Hardee into the Class 5A state championship game on Sunday at 12:35 p.m. If the Wildcats (20-12) survive Coral Springs (28-2), they will face the winner of the simultaneous Saturdaymatch-up between West Nassau (22-6) and KeystoneHeights (20-10). Hardee’s hopes for a state title were dashed last sea son in the opening round of the Final Four as they suf fered a devastating 9-5 loss to Eustis High School. Admission is $9 per day if purchased in advance – at – or $12 per day at the gate. Parking is $10 for cars and $25 for fan buses. Only cash is accepted, See FINALA2 By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-Advocate One hundred eighteen signa tures. That’s all it will take, as long as they are locally registeredvoters, to get your name placedon the ballot to run for publicoffice in Hardee County thiselection year. If you are still considering taking an active role in deci sion-making and serving thepublic – and collecting a goodsized paycheck for doing so –time is running out, though. The deadline for submitting voter signatures is this comingMonday, according to Elec tions Supervisor Diane Smith.After that, getting on the ballotwon’t be free; it will cost a per centage of the salary associatedwith the office you are seeking. Those figures are $32,545 for a County Commissionmember and $27,656 for aSchool Board member, putting their qualifying fees at $1,100and up. Opting to collect signatures to get on the ballot this week isRalph Arce, newly announcedcandidate for County Commis sion District 2. That seat is currently held by Sue Birge, and already has an other named contender, NoeyFlores. The addition of Arcemakes it a three-way fray. The only other county com missioner facing the end of his term is Russell Melendy ofDistrict 4. He has no opponentsas yet. If none surface by theend of the official qualifyingperiod next month, he will au tomatically win four moreyears on the dais. The School Board has three open seats, districts 1, 4 and 5. District 1 incumbent Paul Samuels has but one challengerso far, Melony Cureton. Garry McWhorter, the in cumbent for District 4, remains unchallenged to date. And District 5’s incumbent, Thomas Trevino, is not seekinganother term. Vying for his slotare political newcomers MarkGilliard and Mindy Castillo. But all of the above can change overnight. Forms, called “petitions,” for registered voters to sign inorder to get a name placed onthe ballot are available at theElections Office at 311 N.Sixth Ave. in Wauchula, inside the Curtis Ezelle GovernmentComplex at the intersection of U.S. 17 and Oak Street. Collecting signatures is easy, as registered voters do nothave to promise to vote foryou, or even support you, butmerely have to agree to thedemocratic process of havingcandidates to choose from on a ballot. And, if you miss that chance, you can always pay the quali fying fee come June 18-22.

By CYNTHIA KRAHLOf The Herald-AdvocateAt least three Hardee County residents wont be having fries with that anymore at a local fast-food restaurant. The trio, a teenage girl and two men, were banned from the McDonalds outlet on U.S. 17 South in Wauchula follow ing a large-scale fight there early Sunday morning. Reports indicate that Wauchula police were dis patched to the restaurant at 907 S. Sixth Ave. at 3:15 a.m. There was a fight in progress, involving 20 people, a caller had said. Prior to the first unit arriving less than two minutes later, an update from the dispatch center advised officers that all parties involved in the melee were headed toward their vehicles and leaving the property. As Wauchula police Sgt. Thomas Fort pulled into the McDonalds parking lot, he met up with the restaurants manager, who was standing outside and pointing to a vehi cle that had just driven away. Fort followed. The vehicle was stopped as it turned into the nearby Wauchula Garden Apartments complex off Makowski Road, reports said. Meanwhile, Ofc. Kaleigh Anderson had spoken with the eaterys manager and deter mined that she wanted any combatants police could find to be barred from the property indefinitely. Forms were signed on the trio Fort stopped, a 17-year-old girl and two men ages 20 and 21, all of Wauchula. Each was advised that if ever found on the McDonalds property in the future, an arrest for trespassing would occur. Further, their identities and trespass orders were entered in law enforcement computers.Fight Serves Up 3 Barred From Eatery Kellys ColumnBy JimOn Tuesday the price for unleaded regular gasoline in Hardee County had jumped to $2.759 a gallon, up 11 cents from a week ago. On Tuesday we poured out 3.5 inches of water from the Bowling Green rain gauge and 5.0 inches from the one in Wauchula. The Range Cattle station south of Ona reported 3.0 inches of rain on Tuesday and a half-inch on Monday. This area of Florida averages 50 to 52 inches of rainfall an nually. Congratulations to the Hardee High School girls' softball team for a fifth straight district championship and a second straight trip to the Final Four this weekend. That is an amazing run. Don't recall a HHS team winning a state championship, except in horseshoes around 1959 (Buddy Williams and Roy Wine gard). The football team played for the state championship three times. HHS senior Alexis Benjamin-Graham this year won a state championship in the shot put. The local watermelon season is underway. Prices to the grower started at around 25 or 26 cents a pound two weeks ago and were 23 to 24 cents a pound on Tuesday, said grower Jimmy Parker, who reported about two inches of rainfall at his field near Bowling Green the past couple of days. He plans to start harvesting later this week but noted con tinued rains are not good for picking melons. The fields can get too wet for the trucks and converted buses. My 12 Crimson Sweet watermelon plants are off to a late start and about ready to bloom. Michael, Jonathan and I went saltwater fishing near Pine Is land Saturday and caught four keeper trout, two mackerel, jacks, ladyfish and catfish. It was a good afternoon on the water, with lunch and dinner at Waffle House. Forbes reports the five most valuable Major League Baseball franchises are the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, San Francisco Giants and Boston Red Sox. George Steinbrenner led a group to buy the Yankees in 1973 for $8.8 million ($52 million in today's dollars), and the franchise is now worth $4 billion. Congratulations to the Tampa Bay Rays for being the least valuable MLB franchise at $900 million (worth $451 million five years ago). The next least valuable franchises, in order (ranging from $1.0 billion to $1.15 billion), are the Miami Mar lins, Cincinnati Reds, Kansas City Royals, Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers, Cleveland Indians, Colorado Rockies and Minnesota Twins. The average MLB franchise is worth $1.6 bil lion, up 7 percent from a year ago, and has revenues of $315 mil lion, up 4.7 percent from last year. The Top 10 MLB player earnings this year from baseball contracts are slugger Mike Trout, Angels, $33.3 million; pitcher Clayton Kershaw, Dodgers, $33 million; pitcher David Price, Red Sox, $30 million; slugger Miguel Cabrera, Tigers, $30 mil lion; slugger Yoenis Cespedes, Mets, $29 million; pitcher Justin Verlander, Astros, $28 million; slugger Giancarlo Stanton, Yankees, $25 million; slugger Albert Pujols, Angels, $27 million; pitcher Felix Hernandez, Mariners, $26.9 million; and Joey Votto, Reds, $25 million. Local civic club history was made this month as all three civic clubs are meeting at the same restaurant. The Kiwanis, Ro tary and Lions Clubs have weekly noon luncheon meetings on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday respectively at the Java Cafe in Wauchula. Below is the No. 1 smoothie, according to Scott Pressly, chairman and chief strategic officer of Tropical Smoothie Cafe based in Atlanta. He graduated from University of Florida in 1990 with a bachelor's degree in chemical engineering. He opened a small smoothie stand on a beach in the Florida panhandle in 1993. Today Tropical is a fast-casual restaurant chain serving smoothies, wraps, sandwiches, and flatbreads. The franchise has over 600 locations in 42 states and celebrated its 20th anniver sary in 2017. The mission is to inspire a healthier lifestyle by of fering an alternative to conventional fast food--with a bit of tropical fun. His UF degree and training as a chemical engineer "has been invaluable for instilling a pragmatic, methodical approach to an alyzing and understanding how things work. Despite the repu tation as nerdy, engineers approach the world creatively, looking for innovation and efficiencies in a sensible, practical manner that results in reliable, predictable outcomes." Pressly loves to coach and motivate individuals to do their best and achieve their true potential, whether it is all-star softball, boys' basketball or the Tropical Smoothie Cafe team. The high light of his UF memories was his internship one semester at the Technische Universitat in Muncich, Germany as a cultural ex change student that sparked a lifelong love of travel, reports the Florida Gator magazine. He initially chose a job for security and money but was not happy and then decided to follow his heart and passion in everything he did going forward. If he had to eat only one Tropical Smoothie item for the rest of his life, he chose the Detox Island Green Smoothie--spinach, kale, mango, pineapple, banana and fresh ginger. FINAL Continued From A1 MOM Continued From A1 and proceeds benefit the Treasure Coast Sports Commission. Games will be streamed online by The High School Sports Network at Mother Nature has been less than cooperative as planners headed into this tournament week. The Class 5A Final Four scheduled originally to begin on Friday morning was pushed back by the FHSAA as weather forecasters called for severe weather through Friday in the Treasure Coast area. We appreciate the understanding and flexi bility of our member schools and fans for sup porting this change, noted FHSAA Executive Director George Tomyn in a statement to media. Our goal is to give the student-athletes a fan tastic championship experience they will re member for a lifetime. We are confident that this amended schedule will ensure a positive atmos phere for a great championship event. The delay, though, is a damper for the teams graduating seniors: Mallory Gough, Marisa Ro driguez, Deborah Figueroa, Makayla Be navidez, Destinee Jackson, Alexis McBride and Alayna Carranco. Hardee Highs annual commencement exer cise is scheduled for 9 a.m. on Saturday. With a roughly two-hour drive 104 miles from Wauchula to Vero Beach, there is a small window that would allow the seniors to participate in both events. It remains undecided if all of the seven sen iors will make the trip. We will be meeting the girls in the coming days to discuss some options, said Travis Tubbs, athletic director. Rivera was charged with neg lect of child causing great bod ily harm and neglect of child. A Hardee County Grand Jury on Jan. 31, 2014, handed up a first-degree murder indictment on Jaimes, who later pleaded to lesser charges of aggravated child abuse and neglect of child. At her recent sentencing in Hardee Circuit Court, Circuit Judge Marcus J. Ezelle granted Rivera credit for the time she already served in the Hardee County Jail while awaiting final disposition of her case. He also assessed $4,912 in fines and court costs. Riveras release date has been set at Oct. 15, 2024. Jaimes is scheduled for Aug. 12, 2023, Department of Cor rections records show. DEAR PAW'S CORNER: My toy poodle "Scraps" loves to run around in our big back yard. He never tries to get past the fence, so I usually leave him out while I clean house or handle other tasks. A few days ago, however, as I was calling Scraps inside, my next-door neighbor told me off for leav ing him out there for hours. I don't see anything wrong with him being out in our back yard. What's your take? Miffed in Ocala, Florida DEAR MIFFED: Your neighbor may simply have been worried for Scraps' welfare. If the weather was hot, did you put out water for him to drink while he was outside? Could the neighbor see it? You also should consider dan gers we don't think about when we're outside. Scraps is a toy poodle, so is small and light. He may not be interested in escap ing under the fence, but he may look kind of tasty to a bird of prey. In some suburban neigh borhoods, coyotes roam through backyards, and Scraps wouldn't stand a chance against such a predator. At the very least, make sure Scraps has a shaded area to rest in when he's outside, and has plenty of water to drink. Check on him every 15 to 30 minutes. And bring him in after one to two hours -don't leave him out side for long stretches, or all day. You can let him out again after a couple of hours' rest in doors, again for just an hour or two. More importantly, give him more one-on-one attention. He may love being outside, but Scraps would adore playing fetch with you or reviewing basic commands like sit, stay and lie down.

5:17c By TOM STAIKOf The Herald-Advocate Wauchula is on its way to becoming a sunshine city. The city of Wauchula has inked a deal to join a conglom erate of municipalities fromacross the state in backing oneof the state’s largest solar en ergy projects. Neda Cobb, mayor pro tem of Wauchula, represented thecity at the May 4 signing cere mony at Cocoa, where shejoined leaders of 11 other citiesfrom across the state in pledg ing support for the 223.5-megawatt solar power plant. “By working together, Florida municipal electric util ities can collectively buildlarger, more efficient solar in stallations that will lower thecost of solar energy so we canprovide affordable, emissions-free electricity to our cus tomers,” said Cobb. “We arepleased to be a part of thisproject and are looking for ward to the next project mile stone.” The signing documents were formally presented toWauchula Mayor KeithNadaskay at a workshop meet ing last week by City ManagerTerry Atchley. The project, according to city officials, is expected tosave the city millions over thenext 15-20 years. Wauchula faces no upfront costs during the constructionphase of the Florida MunicipalSolar Project. Instead, cities agreed to pur chase a fixed amount ofmegawatt energy from theplant. Wauchula contracted forfive megawatts of energy –roughly the equivalent energyneeded to power 1,000 homes. The purchase of bulk solar power offers Wauchula the op portunity to cut down on itspurchase of power from its dis tributor – currently FloridaPower & Light – during peak-use periods when prices are attheir highest. Peak electrical use in the city rises in the afternoon be fore tapering off as the sunsets. Solar power productionpeaks during that same period.“It is a win for the city,” Atch ley said. Residents, though, should not expect to see a drop in theirmonthly bills. Savings gener ated from the solar initiativewill likely offset growingpower costs. “This is a long-term proj ect,” said Commissioner KenLambert. “It is planning for thefuture.” Plans for the Florida Munic ipal Solar Project call for threesolar farms expected to gener ate 74.5 megawatts each. Thethree farms will include morethan 900,000 solar panels to beinstalled in sites in Osceolaand Orange counties. The sitesspan more than 1,200 acres. Panels will be racked and in clude a computerized suntracking system to align thepanels for maximum exposure. Permitting is expected to last 18 months and construc tion is expected to begin byearly 2020, with the solarfarms generating power byJune 30, 2020. The Florida Municipal Power Agency and NextEraFlorida Renewables LLC willconstruct and manage the site. Wauchula Joins Solar Project COURTESY PHOTOS Neda Cobb, mayor pro tem of the city of Wauchula, af fixes her name to a solar panel during a signing cere mony for the 12-city partnership to build a223.5-megawatt solar plant to serve regional powerneeds. Represents from 12 cities from across the state came together earlier this monthto enter a partnership to build a massive solar power plant. The Mosaic Company (NYSE: MOS) an nounced Monday that it intends to move its cor porate headquarters, including seniorexecutives and related functions, to Hillsbor ough County. Current headquarters are in Minnesota. Details of the move, including timing, the exact location of the corporate office and thenumber of employees to be relocated, remainunder consideration. The move is expected to yield several bene fits: • Closer proximity and better access to Mosaic Fertilizantes. The company’s recentacquisition of Vale Fertilizantes doubled thesize of its workforce, significantly increasedits presence in Brazil, and reinforced the im portance of keeping Americas-based busi ness units more closely connected tocorporate teams; • A continued focus on the potash business with little impact on accessibility for leadersand team members; • Opportunities to amplify Mosaic’s pres ence in Central Florida and engage moreclosely with communities where the com pany operates, and • Significant long-term cost savings. “Mosaic is among the largest employers and most significant corporate economic drivers inCentral Florida,” said President and CEO Joc O’Rourke. “We believe locating our corporate office there will give us opportunities to am plify Mosaic’s presence and engage moreclosely with communities where we operate. “With the cost savings we expect to achieve and the closer proximity to our Mosaic Fertil izantes business in Brazil, this move will driveimproved efficiency and good value,” he said. The move will allow Mosaic to reconsider its U.S. office footprint, including its spaces inPlymouth, Minn., as well as its FishHawk and Highland Oaks locations in Florida. As a resultof the company’s transformation over the past several years, excess capacity exists at those lo cations. “We will execute this move with as little dis ruption as possible and with sensitivity to ouremployees’ personal situations,” O’Rourkesaid. “Mosaic is fortunate to have a deeply tal ented workforce, and we fully intend to main tain that competitive advantage.” Mosaic Company To Move Headquarters To Florida O PEN 24 H OURS 526 N. 6th Ave (Across from Nicholas Restaurant) 112 W.

No one lived in the old Dur rance home place. The two-story house sat empty most ofmy childhood and teen-ageyears. What had once beenhome to a family was home torats and snakes. The house wasa hazard. The surviving grandson Juddy owned the place. He de cided to burn it down (youcould do such things in thosedays). Mildred, married to aDurrance descendant, askedme to go over with her to seeif anything was left in thehouse worth saving. The house had been emptied of all furniture years before.But strewn on the floor wereold papers, bills, and books. Itwas debris left from decades ofa family living and farmingand making this house a home. In an upstairs bedroom I found a Bible. It laid on top ofa pile of papers. I picked it upand opened to the flyleaf. Writ ten there was the name “SamDurrance.” Sam was a country preacher legend where I come from. Hedied before I was born, but Iheard the stories. Once,preaching at Fort Green, he gotso excited he ran on the tops ofthe slat-backed pews from thefront of the open-air tabernacleto the back and then ran up thecenter aisle, never missing abeat (church was more excit ing back then). Not content with just preaching, Sam was a CountyCommissioner and a friend ofpolitical powers. He had other colorful traits I won’t mention. Now, here was his Bible, in an empty house, about to beburned. If I left the Bible, itwould burn up. I picked theBible up, gave it to Mildred,and told her if she didn’t wantit, I would be honored to haveit. Just then, Juddy drove up.We showed him our find andasked him if he wanted it (hop ing he would say no). But hesaid yes and took the Biblewith him. I never saw it again. A few days later, Juddy burned the house. We saw thesmoke four miles away at ourplace. When we passed by afew days later, we saw still-smoking ruins. The house wasgone, everything good takenout of it. Jesus told a story about a demon who left a man, tryingto find a better place. Afterwandering around for a while,he failed to find a new soulthat would welcome him. So,he went back to his old home.He found the soul clean, butempty. The demon went outand found seven other spiritseviler than itself, and the eightof them moved into the emptysoul. Jesus finished the storyby saying the man was worseoff than he was before (Matthew 12:43-45). Jesus is teaching us that it is not enough to get rid of evil inour lives. This is why most ofus fail in our battle againstevil. We falsely believe if wehave enough willpower, wecan stop doing wrong. We suc ceed for a little while, until evilcomes back with a greaterforce, and wrecks our soulsagain. We’ve got to fill up oursouls with something else,something more powerful thanevil. We must fill our soulswith Jesus. I think about the old Dur rance place, empty all thoseyears. But there was some thing eternal there, a Bible,God’s word which endures for ever. When the Bible was re moved, the only thing really todo with that old wreck of ahouse was to burn it down. If Jesus is not occupying your life, evil will move in. Itwill shove out everything eter nal, until finally your soul islike an empty house, only fitfor snakes and rats and burn ing. That’s not what God wantsfor you. He wants to give youeternal life and make your soulhis home, his beautiful home. Is your soul empty? Or full of Jesus? The Empty House Crop Update May 14, 2018 General: According to the National Agricultural Statistics Service in Florida, there were 6.3 days suitable for fie ldwork for the week ending Sunday, May 13, 2018.

Hot, dry weather delayed the application offertilizers on pasture acres and ended cool-season forages thatwere previously hanging on. Hay feeding resumed on many op erations. Conversely, in central and south counties, slow steadyrain rapidly greened up pastures. Field Crops: In the Panhandle, dry conditions prevented peanut and cotton planting on some operations. The condition of irrigated crops was good. Sugarcane harvest continued inGlades and Hendry counties with an extended harvest expecteddue to delays earlier in the season. Hay cutting was underway inJackson County. Herald-Advocate Hardee County’s Hometown Coverage PRINTERS • PUBLISHERS Telephone (863) 773-3255 The A6 The Herald-Advocate, May 17, 2018

I hope all you mothers had a wonderful Mother's Day and that it continues all year long. We mothers know it's not about the gifts, the flowers, and being taken out to eat. It's all aboutspending time with our loved ones and them showing they careabout us. But, I do have to admit, the gifts and flowers are awelcome addition to Mother's Day. I received an orchid for Mother's Day along with other gifts, but of all the flowers I have received through the years, it is myfirst orchid. I have no idea how to care for it other than the di-rections that came with it. It says to set it in several inches ofwater once a week for five minutes. That is pretty simple, but Iwill have to do more research about caring for it. Several people have made claims saying they are responsi ble for starting mother's Day. Anna Jarvis was one of those peo ple. She started campaigning for a nationwide observance ofMother's Day in honor of her late mother who was a communityhealth advocate. It was her way to keep her mother's memoryalive, and it was supposed to honor only one mother and thatwas her mother. She hated and was very dismayed over the commercialism of Mother's Day and before her death in 1948 she admitted sheregretted ever starting the holiday known today as M other's Day. It was in 1914 that Woodrow Wilson signed a proclamation which designated the second Sunday in May as a national holi day to honor all mothers. Anna Jarvis also started the tradition of wearing a carnation on Mother's Day, a white one if your mother has passed and a colored one if your mother is still living. Let's make every day a Mother's Day, because mothers everywhere are pretty special people.Editor’s Note: Jonell Peavy lives in Avon Park and can bereached at 863-453-3589.

She is the daughter of Jeanne Myrie and Isaac Smith,and granddaughter of Nancyand Gene Craft of Sweetwaterand the late Theresa Kirklandof Zolfo Springs. She started her journey by winning the Stetson Presiden tial Scholarship with her aca demic accomplishments inhigh school, which affordedher a fully paid college tuitionto one of the most prestigiouscolleges in the state. Founded in 1883 with the vision of preparing studentsfor a life of significance, Stet son University stayed true tothat vision during Allison’stime there. Previously, Allison worked at The Herald-Advocate as ajournalist/photojournalist,winning a third-place awardfrom the Florida Press Associ ation for one of her 2015 arti cles. She also has worked,since her junior year at HHS,as a content writer and web ed itor for local businesses alongwith creating graphics andlogos for companies and non-profit organizations. And in her senior year at Stetson, her Senior Project inher field of study, digital arts,was featured at the StetsonHand-Arts Center. It was thenawarded the prestigious EthanGreen Award, which recog nizes a student for significantachievement in the preparationand presentation of a seniorproject. For hers, Allison created a clothing line named “CosmicCollective.” It was designed asfollows: “A retro space-themed clothing line whose aims are topush forward ideals of racial,sexual, and gender inclusivityand promote self-acceptanceby portraying representationsof modern people and culturethrough a combination of textand digital illustrations. Thesedesigns for assorted apparelwere created in Adobe Photo shop and Illustrator. They ap proach modern culture in adifferent yet familiar setting,outer space. In this way, thebrand utilizes space as anequalizer. “Here, social constructs are irrelevant, and prejudices canbe left on Earth. This environ ment helps Cosmic Collec tive’s designs convey positiveand inclusive representationsof humanity and culturethroughout the cosmos. Through these designs and thebrand’s ideals, Cosmic Collec tive strives to provide qualityapparel and appealing retro-fu turistic imagery to its cus tomers” Her project was described as “ambitious in scope,” “exe cuted flawlessly” and “detailedin every sense to create a prod uct that was immediately readyto create a profit. This clothingline could be placed in anymall as a popup store for im mediate sale.” Allison’s plans for the future are to take the summer off towork on freelance design, il lustrate a children’s book, de sign a gaming app for phones,and finalize plans to expand“Cosmic Collective.” She is also working on a larger art collection which willinclude multiple graphic artpieces as well as a sculpturalpiece to add to her portfolio.

Mrs. Shaymanwent above and beyond as hermentor, confidant, and sound ing board. She shares in thisgreat accomplishment with Al lison and her family.

"When I see aguy walking down the streetwith his pants down around hiships, I will throw him a belt."She just laughed. It was a joke, but actually there are so many young menwalking around like this thatthe thought of handing outbelts crossed my mind. Is wearing pants too low on the torso just a fad? I don'tthink so. It appears that thestyle is here to stay, at leastuntil a future generationchanges to something else.Meanwhile, we'll have to putup with the lower pants whichrepresents the fashion of Hip-Hop and the Rap Movement. The Hip-Hop and rappers began with African Americans,and the groups perform verywell with the music, includingenergetic dance movements,and twisting and spinning incircles on the floor. The dance craze carried over when entire groups perform ina synchronized manner withdancers taking turns in the cen ter of the group with specialmoves. I can't understand the fast lyrics of the songs. It's notbeautiful sounding musicwhich I am accustomed to.Perhaps it sounds as foreign tome as the Beatles sounded tomy parents. Due to marketing in this na tion geared toward a widerange of consumers, white males began to copy the blackperformers who seemed suc cessful and broke loose withthe music, dance, and clothesof Hip Hop and Rap. Not only were musical groups formed, but their fanstook notice of the way to dresswith large jewelry, long shirts,and baggy pants low on theirhips. Of course this style ofdress is limited to males be cause if females wore pants solow exposing underwear, theywould probably be arrested. Music has gone from Big Bands and Swing, to Jazz,Rock 'N Roll, Rhythm andBlues, Country, Disco, Rock,Hard Rock, and now Rap.Dress styles have changed.What was once "in" is now"out." Is Hip-Hop and Rap here to stay, or will it only be hereuntil the next generation be gins something else? My guess is that rappers have a firm hold in the musicindustry and on the youth oftoday. I think it will be aroundfor quite awhile. Kids searchfor identity, and it's easy toadapt a style as a feeling of be longing and self-worth. Rap is a culture involved with the use of profane lan guage and rebellion in music.Perhaps some kids like Rapbecause their parents don't.Truth remains that marketingis padding pockets, and somekids are addicted to Rapmusic.

Joe and Dollene Fields prepared scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage patties, potatoes and pancakes. For drink there was coffee, orange juice and tea. Joe said Danny Weeks, his boss and a very good boss, cooks lots of big meals. He told Joe the best pancake mix to get, and he sure led him in the right direction. After a good sermon, we went to town to have dinner and picked up sister-in-law Avis Sasser to join Sherman and me, and we met Avie, Allen and Kaylee at the restau rant. To top the day off, my grandchildren and one great called from Washington State. After all this excitement, I col lapsed on the couch for an af ternoon nap! Mark your calendars and come to Fort Green this coming Sunday as it will be Brother Steves last day at our church. We will have a cov ered-dish dinner following the a.m. service. It is still up in the air whether there will be an evening service. Brother Steve and Tara plan to load up the rented truck and head out Monday as soon as it is loaded, and all able men are urged to come and lend them a hand. I had been noticing coming into Wauchula there were two pretty brick columns with nothing else. I wondered why, but the other day saw the com pleted project. There is a beau tiful sign advising where you are! One last thing to get on your calendar is the Gulf State Quartet Homecoming at Fort Green on Friday, May 25, beginning at 7 p.m. Simple Faith will also be singing that night. If you like Southern gospel music make sure and come as it will be good! Our sincere sympathy is ex tended to the family of Betty Pace. I did not know her until a group of ladies from our church went to Hardee Manor and sang and had a brief devotion for the residents. Mrs. Pace always sat up near the front, and I introduced myself and she told me who she was and we visited. This happened on two occasions, and the last time was near Easter so I took her a little rabbit to sit in the window and the sun would make it dance. I had just gotten to know her, but know her family will really miss her as will I the next time we go to Hardee Manor. Sympathy is also extended to the family of Dr. Palmer. There was a large crowd at his services. He really did a lot for Hardee County and estab lished lots to help the youth. He was a good doctor and a good boss. I was privileged to work for him after Charlie and worked until his retirement. It was a perfect job. I worked two days a week from 9 to 2, which made you more organ ized with your work at home. I will surely miss him and I know many more will miss him. He was really missed when he quit his practice, as it is hard to find another doctor and they are never like your old one. I was talking to Mr. Gill and he said he ran the Boston Marathon once when Dr. Palmer was, and later on they were in a medical confer ence and Dr. Palmer remem bered the specific occasion. I did not know that Mr. Gill ran races until that day. Please pray for these families. Congratulations to Jimmy and Savanah Sasser on the birth of their baby girl. The proud grandparents are Beth and Dennis. Since Beth broke her ankle she will not be able to walk around and hold that new little one, but I feel sure she will have them bringing her and Beth will be holding her in her lap! We had quite a few listed on the prayer list Wednesday night. Among them were Punk Albritton, home from the hos pital, Don Tollison who had outpatient surgery, Amy Franks with back spasms, and Daniel Duke. It was also re ported Joyce Coker had been sick for three weeks. Cindy Williamson is still in the hos pital. Please remember these in prayer. Kenny Lambert looks good as does Judy Miller but we need never let up on our prayers for complete recovery. Kari Nobel, one of the bee people, called and had been sick with pneumonia but they did not put her in the hospital, just antibiotics at home. They have already gone to the pleasant North. This time of the year it is pleasant but it sure can get cold in the winter. I was just notified that Katie Terrell passed away during the night and she was in no pain, just passed peacefully in her sleep. I was privileged to go junking with her and Kitty Oden on several occasions, and she acted younger than me. She did not want any help nor did she want me to call her Mrs. Katie, just first name! She was quite a lady. Our sym pathy is with her family. My yard is beautiful with the trumpet lilies in full bloom and three gardenia bushes in full bloom. The crepe myrtle are just beginning to bloom. God does bless our little piece of ground. I saw Geraldine Floyd in Walmart and she turned an other year older on Thursday and had a rose azalea in her buggy. I went and got two! I bought one in a flea market in Albany, Ga., over 25 years ago and have been trying to get Sherman to air lay because I didnt want it to die. Im so thankful I saw her because I had just walked by them and didnt even register what they were! Please pray for one another and our nation.

Many of our young adults see no significant differ ence. Alcohol is a product that has directly, or indirectly, nega tively impacted every American: loss of life, loss of marriage, broken family, ad dictions, etc. Often we are not aware of the 132 billion dollars paid by taxpayers to clean up after tragic accidents. Alcohol is a sedative; in the brain, it slows the ability to think and move, and it impairs judg ment. Alcohol contributes to the death of around 88,000 Americans every year. Many Americans have looked into a casket of a loved one killed by alcohol. How can anyone look in the faces of the loved ones sur rounding these 88,000 victims and say, We need more alcohol? How can a young mother with three children whose hus band has just been killed by a drunk be persuaded that, We need more alcohol? These 88,000 victims represent some of the most tragic and horrific accidents. How can anyone discount the signif icance of these unnecessary tragedies and then push for more alcohol? How can anyone deny that more alcohol means more heartache and more death? How can anyone not care? Many promoters of alcohol are motivated by money. How tragic when money is valued more than life, marriage, and harmony in our society! The enemy of our soul and the enemies of our nation ap plaud more alcohol. It makes their goal much easier. Pro moters of alcohol ignore the facts because they can never justify the deaths of 88,000 Americans every year. A beer and a cola are essentially the same only if life has no God-given value.

Rogers, Clerk of the Circuit Court By: Connie Coker Deputy Clerk4:26-5:17p______________________________Dear Editor: This was back in about 1947. That has been a very long time ago. I have not been able to find any pictures of the school as it was back then, about 71 years ago. There has been a lot of development since my beginning days at the elementary school since I started my teaching days. Some of the building programs started before I left my teaching position at Zolfo Springs Elementary and taught one year at Wauchula Elemen tary. The reason I left Zolfo Elementary was I did not care for the man who was hired to be principal after the teacher walkout. When the next year came of teaching, I received a position at Wauchula Elementary, under Dr. Reeves working in the area of special education which I had been doing in Zolfo Springs Elementary. There were some teachers who were aggravated with me because I left and came to Wauchula Elementary. They really had no idea why I left. The next principal for Zolfo tried to get me to come back, but I had already committed myself. (I had nothing against Mr. Jack Iiames. I think he was a very good person and would have gotten along very well with him.) I feel it would not have been right for me to leave Dr. Reeves since I had already committed to him. I got along fine with all the teachers at Wauchula Elementary. I had known all of them for some time because we had grade group meetings every few months to discuss pro grams, materials, how we managed this or that, etc. Dr. Reeves knew that I was going to be in Wauchula Ele mentary because I had com mitted myself to a new program for the next year and would be getting more money. It was a state program. This is all for this time. I'll keep you in suspense. Don't give up on me.

All school choice applications must be turned in to the office of Student Academic Services by May 31, 2018 @ 4:30 pm 5:17cI knew I was going to write about the draft and for a couple weeks, I imagined that the title for this draft column would be, "At least they didn't draft an other kicker". After all, the last couple Bucss drafts didn't really make sense (see 2016 Bucs draft). I wasn't hoping for too much. In 2017 the Bucs gave up more yards while on defense than any other team in the NFL. An average of 260.6 passing yards were given up to opposing quarterbacks. Due to that poor perform ance last year, and a losing record, the Bucs were sched uled to pick 7th in the NFL Draft. Thankfully, I'm glad to say I was wrong. This year, the Tampa Bay front office did an impressive job handling the NFL draft. Not great, but impressive. And as Bucs' fans, we can live with impressive. Draft Results: Round 1 (#12 overall from Buffalo) Vita Vea, defen sive tackle from Washington; Round 2 (#38 overall) Ronald Jones II, running back from USC; Round 2 (#53 overall from Buffalo) M.J. Stewart, corner back from North Car olina; Round 2 (#63 overall) Carlton Davis, corner back from Auburndale; Round 3 (#94 overall from Minnesota), Alex Cappa, guard from Humboldt State; Round 4 (#117 overall), Jordan Whitehead, safety from Pittsburgh; and Round 5 (#144 overall), Justin Watson, wide receiver from Pennsylvania. Just a couple quick observations. At pick seven, the best over all defensive player (Bradley Chubb) had already been drafted by Denver, so the Bucs traded with Buffalo. This meant that Buffalo took the 7th overall pick and the Bucs re ceived two additional second round picks and the 12th over all pick from the Bills. That was a solid move by the front office. It gave the Bucs more op portunity to find quality players in the first couple rounds. And, for a change, I'm really excited about the first two picks. At #12 the Bucs chose Vita Vea. When I first saw this, I was mad. My immediate reaction was, "A nose guard? Seri ously? Can we please draft a decent safety or cornerback? This is a pass-first league." Then, after all of my imme diate complaining subsided I watched the videos of this kid. And I watched the video footage again. Vea is an absolute beast. At 6'4" 347 pounds Vea can literally throw smaller offen sive linemen out of the way. This kid was double teamed all the time. He's a monster. Vea is the same height as all-pro teammate Gerald McCoy and about 50lbs heavier. And if McCoy is usually double teamed by opposing offensive lines, how are the Bucs' opponents going to handle both of those two defensive tackles? They can't. I don't think the offensive lines can double team both of them. At least, not without sac rificing coverage on the edge. Also, with this kid's talent, he may end up being the replacement for McCoy if McCoy retires in the next couple years. Vea is going to be fun to watch and he should make an immediate impact for the Bucs' defense. At #38 the Bucs drafted Ronald Jones II from USC. This kid is fast and I think the Bucs were lucky to see him fall to the second round. Jones suffered a hamstring injury at the Combine and that may have factored into his slip in the draft. Ronald Jones is an allaround running back that can play all three downs. Meaning, unlike the recently departed Doug Martin, Jones can catch and block in passing situa tions. Does that mean HC Koetter will actually keep the same running back on the field for an entire possession? That remains to be seen. Last year, the Bucs continuously rotated between Martin, Peyton Barber, Chris Sims and Jacquiz Rodgers and it seemed like the running backs had a hard time getting a feel for the game flow because they were con stantly shuffled on and off the field. I'm interested to see how the Bucs are going to use this kid. hopefully, as a true three down back. As of today, the Bucs have a decent offensive line, resigned tight end Cameron Brate and a developing 2nd year and former first round draft pick tight end O.J. Howard. Howard and Brate both block well enough. If Jones is as good as his college highlight reel suggests, it would make a lot of sense, maybe too much sense, to line up in a two tight end set, and just forget about slot wide receiver Adam Humphries. Hear me out. Line up Brate and Howard on either side of the line (or the same side) with wide receivers Mike Evans and Desean Jackson. The Bucs could easily call multiple runs, passes or play actions out of that formation with solid offensive players on the field. I'm pretty happy with this pick. The Bucss ground game hasn't been too dependable during the Doug Martin era. A solid run game should make it easier on quarterback Jameis Winston. In fact, Jones has been compared to Jamaal Charles, one of the NFL's best rushers of recent memory. My only real head scratcher was the selection at #94 of offensive lineman Alex Cappa from Humbolt State. "Where's that," you ask? I didn't know either. I Googled it. Humbolt is a small Division 2 school in northern California. So, not only did we draft an unknown commodity in round 3, but we used up multiple picks to do so. The Bucs traded an extra pick to Min nesota to move up and select a lineman that basically no one outside of NFL scouts has heard about. When asked about the selection, the Bucs front office basically said: "trust us." We'll see. I'm not saying we shouldn't have drafted him, but maybe not traded up in the third round? Hopefully, I'm wrong. All in all, this was an im pressive job by the Bucs's front office. Will it translate into more wins this year? Only time will tell. But, the Bucs have done a solid job with free agency and the draft this offseason. Tampa Conducts Impressive Draft J erry O'Neal Phillips Jr., D.O.B. 630-1962, D.O.D. 5-62018. It is with much sadness I announce the passing of my son Jerry Jr., 55, who passed from this life Sunday, May 6, approx 5 p.m. CST. God spared his suffering. He knew of the cancer three weeks and passed quietly at home three hours out of the hospital. Let your prayers be for those we love who are still with us in the grips of cancer. May they survive or pass qui etly as did my son. Parents are not supposed to be burying our children. Only God knows my departure sched ule. Boy, I love politics. I learned that 13, yeah 13, people are shooting for the title of mayor in Nashville, Tenn. The pay must be great. Should I call them the Dirty Dozen? That title has al ready been used, so I will just call them the Losing Dozen. There can be only one winner and 12 losers. Zolfo Springs may be the home plate for the buzzard, but I have watched three for two weeks circling over the same spot in Manchester, Tenn. Maybe they are looking for other real estate so look out Florida, you may be losing your state bird. (Editor's Note: Florida's state bird is the mockingbird.) I always seem to find humor at a funeral. A friend passed on, and his wife and ex were both there. After a couple of days viewing, his ex said he just don't look right. He always had a cigarette either in his mouth or behind his ear. She walked over and placed a Marlboro on his ear. His wife said the most she saw of him was a Bud Light in one hand or the other. The family were all in and out, nobody paying much at tention until his mother looked at the casket. His right hand was just above the opening and holding a half-empty Bud Light. He was buried with both. From sand piles to dirt piles ... the only place Johnny and I had to play was a sandy yard or road. Morning, noon or night we were always dirty from bare heads to our shoeless feet. When it rained it was mud but not for long. Sand soaks up rain almost as fast as it gets wet. Years went by. Boys grew into young men, and we went our separate ways. Somehow Johnny could not shake the dirt off. For a long time he had a trucking business, dump trucks hauling dirt. Then he sold out. Next was a shrimp boat fiasco, a total in the hole failure. Then a machine shop. Still get ting dirty each day. I suppose he is the one who kept Lava Soap in business. When he retired it became hard to find Lava Soap in any store. But that is the way when you live close to the earth, you get dirty. Off and gone ... I took my cap off and realized something. Since I am only part Indian I saw why I cannot wear a Mohawk hairdo. No hair on top. Maybe a white pigtail could be arranged if God allows me enough time to let it grow out. That's about all I can muster now. I am amazed that the alligator hunter from Houma, La., never gets his braid caught in that airboat engine or even a gator's jaw leaning off that boat. I had to let mine grow for three years just to be a Mall Santa, then it decided to go off on its own like musicians often do. It never came back home. My hair is like my children, all scattered with the wind, and turning gray. Never too old to learn. I learned two things this week. Alabama and Georgia have one thing in common. They both hate Auburn. FSU and UF also have one thing in common. They hate Alabama. Laying all things aside I wish you would stop picking on Vanderbilt. Vandy is not sup posed to be football players. They turn out sur geons, and who wants a surgeon with a broken arm?

Box 760 (863) 735-0470 Zolfo Springs, FL BOWLING GREEN Everyone seems to worship someone or something for one reason or another. Early in life we realize that we need help to sur vive and cannot make it on ourown. Initially it is a parent or aparent-substitute that is there tohelp us. Then, as we get older andbecome more independent, webegin to realize that there areother sources to meet our needs.We begin to look to them for whatthey can do for us or perhaps giveto us in exchange for our alle giance or respect. We think thatthey will bring us something weneed. It’s only natural. The question is not whether or not we worship but what orwhom we worship. It can be fameor fortune, power or prestige, aperson or a philosophy someoneor something that we believe isgreater than ourselves and willbring us peace and happiness, joyand satisfaction. It is someone orsomething that we believe is supe rior to us and we are willing tosurrender and submit ourselves toit. But, really, it only reveals ourlostness and our need for Some one Who is above us, beyond us -yet cares for us. The Psalmist invites us to, “Come, let us worship and bowdown, let us kneel before the Lordour Maker.” He wants us to recog nize the superiority and suffi ciency of God our Creator. Oncewe acknowledged God as ourCreator we immediately recog nize Him as the source of all thatwe have or ever will have. Wor ship becomes God-centered andnot man or thing centered. Wor ship results in turning our livesover to God and recognizing Hisgrace and sovereignty as we bowbefore Him in awe. Visit us at: Guido Evangelistic Association Metter, Ga.

Dr. Dale C. AndersonPodiatric Physician & Surgeon5:17c "BED POST" DOLL Dolls have been favored toys for centuries. Long before there were manufactured china, metal or plastic-headed dolls, there were wooden, rag and even dried-apple heads. And often, where there was no available doll material, folk-art dolls were made with leather and beads, silk stockings, felt, carved stone and fur, knit socks, clothes pins, wishbones, corn cobs, acorns and pinecones even old broom sticks. A 2016 doll auction sold a German carved wooden folkart doll, made in about 1850 from a hollow wooden tube and other wood pieces, for $1,600. It is 20 inches tall and is decorated with a painted geo metric design. There are no arms or legs, but the paint suggests a bunting blanket used on babies. The auction catalog called it the "bed post doll" because the head looked like the top of a bed post and was, per haps, made from a recycled bedpost. The original painted finish, age, size and originality all added to the value. *** Q: I'd like to know some thing about F. Winkles & Co. pottery. Is it old or valuable? A: F. Winkle & Co. made earthenware at the Colonial Pottery in Stoke, Staffordshire, England, from 1890 to 1931. Ridgways took over F. Winkle & Co. in 1931. The Colonial Pottery became Whieldon San itary Potteries Ltd., later a subsidiary of Doulton Co. The factory was torn down in about 2000. Pottery by F. Winkle & Co. is selling for low prices. Dinner plates sell for $10-$25, bread and butter plates for $9, a fruit dish for $15. Serving dishes sell for higher prices. *** Q: We have an old castiron stove that reads "Wooddale Belknap Hdw. & Mfg. Co. Louisville, KY" on the front. It belongs to my mom and we want to sell it, but we need to know an asking range. A: Belknap Hardware & Manufacturing Co. was estab lished in 1840 by William Burke Belknap. Belknap made stoves, hot plates, dutch ovens, skillets and waffle irons. The company name became Belk nap, Inc., in 1968. It closed in 1985. Some stoves with the same mark as yours sell for $250-$300. CURRENT PRICES Store sign, Ice Cream 5 Cents, ice cream-cone shaped, impressed lettering, copper, c. 1920, 14 x 6 inches, $160.

ROACH: You have written many articles about high blood pressure, but I want to know about low blood pressure. What is nor mal? What is low, and what is dangerously low? I have a heart issue for which I take medication. I want to know if my blood pressure is too low. Anon. ANSWER: Among young adults, only 5 percent of men will have a blood pressure below 110/60 or so, and for young women, it's 90/46. Blood pressure tends to go up with age, so low blood pressure numbers are higher for older adults. For people with healthy hearts, the only time we worry about low blood pressure is if there are symptoms, and the most common symptoms are lightheadedness and fainting. In people with congestive heart failure, low blood pressure usu ally is not concerning in itself, but because it might indicate that the heart is getting weaker. However, many of the medica tions used for CHF reduce blood pressure, which can even limit the amount of medication that can be used. In people with blockages in their arteries, too low a blood pressure can cause inadequate blood flow to parts of the heart and cause angina symptoms. The blood pressure is dan gerously low when a disease process is causing the low blood pressure. In extreme cases, low blood pressure is one of the most dangerous signs of shock. But in general, for healthy people, low blood pressures are not worrisome. DR. ROACH WRITES: I have received more letters about hearing loss than I would have believed possible. Most of the advice was consistent, so let me review what both pro fessionals and people who have been through the process of getting hearing aids have ad vised. First, have realistic expectations about what a hearing aid can do. It does not make your hearing what it was 50 years ago. Loud noises can be painfully overamplified. Second, find someone who really knows what he or she is doing. The people whose technicians spent a lot of time teaching, discussing the differ ent options and adjusting them after purchase were the most satisfied. (The adjustment pe riod can take weeks.) A referral from a satisfied friend could be a good place to start. Several professionals recommended that your audiologist be certi fied by the American Speech, Language and Hearing Association. Third, be prepared to spend some money. Good hearing aids are expensive. More ex pensive doesn't always mean better, but most of my readers felt that the money they spent on hearing aids was well worth it. I'm sure there are some great ones, and some not as great. Many veterans wrote me to tell me about their (mostly) good experiences at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Fourth, try many models. Some people prefer in-the-ear, some over-the-ear. Because it takes a long time to get used to them, you need to wear them pretty much constantly. Both your ears and your brain need time to adjust, so be patient. Finally, several people and one chapter president wrote to me about the Hearing Loss Association of America ( and the benefit they gained from visiting their local chapter and shar ing their experiences. Dr. Roach regrets that he is un able to answer individual let ters, but will incorporate them in the column whenever possible.

5:17c MAD SCIENTIST COURTESY PHOTOS It was lab coats andlaughter as Zolfo SpringsElementary students andtheir families experiencedan evening of scientificdemonstrations duringthe school’s ScienceNight. The top photoshows Payton May watch ing closely as the experi ment begins. In themiddle photo, BrodiePrescott fills a beaker justas scientists do. The bot tom photo shows the stu dents’ reactions as themad scientist creates acloud of excitement! Both Florida orange and grapefruit production dippedslightly in the latest forecastreleased Thursday, May 10,by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture. The USDA’s May report es timates Florida orange produc tion for 2017-18 at 44.95million boxes, a 50,000 boxdecrease from last month.Florida grapefruit productionwas also reduced by 50,000boxes, to 3.95 million boxes.The reductions were in Naveloranges and white grapefruit,according to the USDA. “With everything Florida Citrus growers have gonethrough this year, we considertoday’s forecast to be rela tively stable and not unex pected,” said Shannon Shepp,executive director of theFlorida Department of Citrus.“This is an industry choosingto remain optimistic about thefuture. And part of that opti mism comes from the supportwe’ve received from policymakers, industry and con sumers.” Hurricane Irma had a devas tating impact on the Floridacitrus industry. Florida grow ers reported 30 to 70 percentcrop loss after HurricaneIrma’s landfall on September10, with the southwest regionof the state receiving the mostdamage. The hurricane up rooted trees and left manygroves sitting in standingwater for up to three weeks,potentially damaging the rootsystems and impacting future seasons’ growth. In October, the Florida De partment of Agriculture andConsumer Services announcedthat Florida citrus sustainedmore than $760 million indamages due to HurricaneIrma. The U.S. Senate andHouse of Representativespassed federal disaster recov ery relief as part of a largerspending bill in February. InApril, the USDA announced itwill begin implementing disas ter payments of up to $2.36billion in response to 2017hurricanes and wildfires. Prior to Hurricane Irma, Florida was expected to pro duce about 75 million boxes oforanges this season, accordingto private estimates.About the Florida Department of CitrusThe Florida Department ofCitrus is an executive agencyof Florida governmentcharged with the marketing,research and regulation of theFlorida citrus industry. Its ac tivities are funded by a taxpaid by growers on each boxof citrus that moves throughcommercial channels. The in-dustry employs 45,000 people,provides an annual economicimpact of $8.6 billion to thestate, and contributes hun dreds of millions of dollars intax revenues that help supportFlorida’s schools, roads andhealth care services.

Bible Trivia By Wilson Casey STEAK SECRETS Steaks that are at least 3/4inch to 1-inch thick won't dryout easily during grilling. Trimoff excess fat and slash the fatedges at 1-inch intervals toprevent curling. Turn your steak with tongs once, halfway through cooking(don't use a fork — it willpierce the meat and let the nat ural juices escape). Many fac tors can influence cookingtime — including the weather(especially wind) when you'reusing charcoal — so test for doneness by cutting into thethickest part of the steak andchecking its color. Let steak stand for a few minutes before serving. Thisallows the meat juices, whichhave been driven to the centerof the meat by the heat, to re turn to the surface, resulting injuicier meat.For thousands of triple-testedrecipes, visit our Web site (c) 2018 Hearst Communications, Inc.

Poster boardsdescribed the theories they tested, from start to ribbon-earning finish, as they ex plored such topics as the environment and natural resources to chemistry and tech nology. Salad for Supper A bowl filled with a cold salad with flavorful ingredientsare a "hot" menu item this year!There are several ways to in corporate the numerous vari eties of spring vegetables,superfoods, grains and cheesesinto a "super" salad by usingsimple preparation methods.Here are a few tips to make asalad that will appeal to eventhe pickiest eater: Make it colorful! Skip the iceberg and opt for spinach,kale or another dark leafygreen. Dark leafy greens sup ply a tremendous amount ofnutrients, including vitamin A,vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, cal cium and fiber. Add color withsome carrots, red bell peppers,tomatoes, blanched asparagus,beets or any other vegetable,and you get additional nutrientscritical for maintaining eye sight, bone health and digestivehealth. Salad isn't just for vegetables anymore! Try adding in cooked grains such as brown rice,quinoa and barley to add nutri tious texture, and fruits like ap ples, citrus segments, grapes,strawberries or blueberries toyour plate of colorful vegeta bles. Like many vegetables,fruits contain antioxidants thatcan help protect against certainforms of cancer and reduce lev els of LDL, or bad cholesterol.Try to limit or avoid driedfruits, such as dried cranberriesor blueberries. These oftenhave added sugars that can upthe calorie content of yoursalad. Add a healthy crunch! A few toasted walnuts or almonds,spicy baked garbanzo beansand pickled vegetables are agreat addition to any salad. Add some protein! Protein takes longer to digest, so itkeeps us full longer. Proteinalso is needed for healthy mus cles. Eggs, lean meat, beansand cheese (in limited quanti ties) are easy ways to add pro tein. Find a healthier dressing that works for you! There now are quite a variety of lightdressings and vinaigrettes tochoose from. Vinegar-baseddressings typically have less fatand calories than creamy dress ings. Oil and vinegar is ahealthy choice in limitedamounts — the healthy fatfrom the oil helps your body toabsorb some of the vitaminsfrom the salad. Creating a healthy salad can be a simple way to satisfy rec ommendations for fruit andvegetable intake. It's also awonderful way to use leftovercooked meats, vegetables andgrains. Don't be afraid to useyour grocery deli section selec tions for sliced vegetables androasted deli meats to make adelicious meal in record time.

Presidential security was not always as formidable as it is today. In 1913, former President Theodore Roosevelt was walking down a Milwaukee street, heading to a speech he was scheduled to give. A man named John Schrank pulled out a gun and shot toward Roosevelt, who staggered but did not fall. There was no blood evident, and Roosevelt, who was campaigning for a second term, insisted on delivering his speech. When he pulled from a coat pocket the 100 pages on which his speech was written, he saw a bullet hole through the sheets of paper. Still determined to carry on, he gave his speech before going to the hospital, where it was discovered that the bullet had penetrated four inches into his body. After the perpetrator was arrested, it became evi dent that Schrank was insane; he claimed that President William McKinley had re vealed to him in a dream that Roosevelt was responsible for McKinley's assassination. Schrank spent the next 32 years in an insane asylum.(c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.Strange But TrueBy Samantha Weaver May 17, 2018, The Herald-Advocate B11

PUBLIC NOTICESTATE OF FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION NOTICE OF PERMIT REVISIONThe Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of a permit revision [NPDES Permit No. FL0036412; PA File No. FL0036412-035-IWB/MR] authorizing the transfer of newly permitted property (about 5,477 acres) which was previously associated with the planned Ona Mine in western Hardee County, to the Mosaic Fertilizer, L.L.C. (Mosaic) Four Corners Mine [mailing address: 13830 Circa Crossing Drive, Lithia, FL 335473953]. Matrix and associated mine water will be transferred across Mosaics Wingate and Fort Green properties to the Four Corners beneficiation plant for processing. The Four Corners Mine is located at 11200 State Road 37 S, Bradley in Hillsborough County, Florida and geograph ically at: Latitude: 27 38 45.9647 N Longitude: 82 05 13.9165 W The application and permit revision are available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at the Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Water Resource Management, Phosphate Management Program, 13051 N. Telecom Parkway Suite 101, Temple Terrace, Florida 33637-0926. Please phone (813) 470-5913 for an appointment. The Department will issue the permit unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or all parties reach a written agreement on mediation as an alternative remedy under section 120.573 before the deadline for filing a petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), Florida Administrative Code, a person may request enlargement of the time for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. The request must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of General Coun sel before the end of the time-period for filing a petition for an administrative hearing. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), Florida Statutes, however, any person who has asked the Depart ment for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request for enlargement of time within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that persons right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is based must contain the following in formation: (a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any; the Department permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity is located; (b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Department action; (c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are affected by the Department action; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the Department action; (f) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and (g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wants the Department to take. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hearing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404, Florida Administrative Code. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, within ten days after the deadline for filing a petition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing if mediation does not result in a settlement. As provided in Section 120.573, Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all parties to mediate will toll the time lim itations imposed by Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty days of the ex ecution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitions within fourteen days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. If mediation terminates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hearing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes, remain avail able for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing remedies under those two statutes. This action is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department unless a petition (or request for mediation) is filed in accordance with the above. Upon the timely filing of a petition (or request for mediation), this order will not be effective until further order of the Department. Any party to the order has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section 120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under Rule 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Office of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000; and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable filing fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be filed within 30 days from the date when the final order is filed with the Clerk of the Department. 5:17c Courthouse ReportCOUNTY COURT There were no marriage licenses filed last week.
